And he gathered his tribesmen from his side of the family. And he seized power.
And he developed a number of offices.
He developed it during his time, five basic positions, now to say, acted as a king.
And he really was the oldest King like person in the sense that he ruled over the whole of Mecca itself. And he ordered the construction of houses near the Kaaba. And so for the first time, was an organized building of houses around the Kaaba itself. And he ordered that the family of kadesh, that the family who had direct descendants back to Vietnam, they should live closest to the Kaaba, and then according to your lineage, you would live out, and then the Christians or the Jews and other people would live on the outskirts, living far out.
Also, he built what is called Data najwa, a meeting center. It's sort of like a city hall, or a clubhouse. And in that data network, with a meeting of the elders to decide on issues of the community, all of the weddings were held there,
if a wall was decided upon, they would leave from the network. And so it was a very crucial point of meeting that was that was made by Jose, he also text kodesh. And he said, Because you are the noble people living here, then you should take a certain portion of your wealth, and give it towards the pilgrims, and the people who are coming into Mecca. So people's also travelers would come in, would get water and food without having to pay. And this was part of the wisdom of Crusade, because by doing that, he raised the status of kadesh. And he also made it very viable for people to come off the desert, and then first drink and eat and relax themselves, and then they could do business. Now
the five positions that he made, number one, he made he Java.
He Java was the guardianship of the keys to the Kaaba.
So this was one of the responsibilities that he had, as the lead. In other words, his job description, we would call it today to
a liwa or piada. And the tiada means the leadership of the army, the liwa was the flag. So literally, this is the military leader. So he was also the military leader, three, the position of Nadella, which was the chairmanship of all of the meetings, so any meeting held in our network, he would have to be the chairman. And so this is like the mayor of the town.
For sakaya. This is the provision of water, and five rabada, which is the provision of food. So there were five key portfolios. Some people would say the minister of the keys to the car, but the minister of the of defense, the Minister, or the mayor, the Prime Minister, the Minister of water, the Minister of food, so he made ministries. So he literally now develop the political structure for Mecca.
Now, when Qusay became old and feeble, he looked at his sons. And when you see the chart, which will be coming to you, you will find that, that from Qusay
he had a number of sons of those sons was Abdullah, za, abdomen, F and up the dash. These are the three key people within his family.
Up to dad was the oldest son.
the positions all of the five positions were given to up the dot.
abdomen F, however,
was a natural leader. And he was highly respected by the people of Mecca, Tomoko drama.
And so a struggle then began to unfold. And it's important for us to realize power struggles, because this this forms what I would call jaha. Leah, it's your ignorance, and everybody has a type of genelia. in Cape Town, you might say, well, I come from Weinberg. I come from men and Berg. I come from Mitchell's plane. In America, they said come from New York City. I come
From Chicago, it's sort of like your background, what is your tribe? What part of the city did you come from? What is your power base. And so that forms part of the personality.
And so amongst the sons of abdomen F,
we're Alamo, taalib
And up the shops.
You see that coming there. Underneath abdomen, if you can see the names of the chimps is also one of the sons.
And so a struggle began to develop between these two sides of the families. And because the family of abdomen f was so powerful, they were about to seize power to seize all of the positions. And so they came together. And they made a treaty amongst themselves to struggle to do war, called health. And multikey been the pact of those who dip their hands into better sleep. So they literally dip their hands into perfu put their hands together, and they made an oath that they would fight for the power in the city.
The other members of the other sun up the dot, they made a treaty helpful, a half the alliance of the allies, and they also agreed to fight. So a civil war was about to break out.
But the people of Mecca came together, the wise people in Mecca came together. And they made an agreement helpful for dual,
which was an agreement of the tribes. And so from this agreement, the sons of abdomen f were given, refactored, and sakaya. They were given the responsibility to give water to the pilgrims and the visitors and to feed them and the sons of Abu Dhabi were given liwa or Piazza the leadership, nada, the mayor ship
and a Java the keys to the Kaaba itself. And this piece Hill fulfil duel lasted right up until the time of the Prophet Solo Solo. And what is important is that you will actually see the power struggle developing between family members. Now, when you look here, at this at your charts, you will see underneath abdomen F is Hashem. And Hashem was a natural leader.
And he developed himself in the tradition of his grandfather to say
he encouraged the feeding of the pilgrims, he tax kodesh and he literally spread the power and influence of Mecca throughout the civilized world. It is reported that Hashem was so active politically, that he went to the Byzantine Roman Empire of the North. And he made a treaty with Oculus, the Roman Emperor, who welcomed the Arabs into Ankara, what is now presently unka in Turkey, that was the capital at that point, they welcomed the Arabs into their capital, and they gave them an open permission to do trade along the coastline.
Also, he introduced or he solidified, the trade going from hijas up and down,
which is now known as the trade of the summer and the winter relata schita was safe,
which is mentioned in sorbitol kodesh. He was the one who actually solidified this trait.
He got his name, his name was Ahmed, but the name Hashem and this is very important for us as students of knowledge. The name Hashem comes from hashima which means to crush and it is reported that Hashem during a drought and a famine in Mecca, he made soup he was so wealthy that he made soup and he crushed up bread and he fed everybody in Mecca until the drought was over. And so from that because he did hashima he broke up the the the bread they called him Hashem, but his name was actually Alma
from amongst his achievements is that under his leadership, his brothers nofal Alma Talib and up the chumps made treaties under his leadership.
Know fell, made a treaty with the Persians. Allah tala made a treaty with the him iadis of Yemen
The chumps made a treaty with a Najafi the negus in Ethiopia. So by making these treaties, then the the caravans of kadesh were welcomed and protected. When they went to the Roman Empire, the Persian Empire, when they went south to Yemen, when they went across the Red Sea to Ethiopia, this was this all happened underneath the leadership of Hashem. So this name is a very important name to the people of the Arabian Peninsula.
What happened during that time? Is that one of the children of Abdi Shep's, who would be the nephew of Hashem, his name was Romania. And he was thirsty for power. And so he began to struggle against Hashem. But the people rejected him and he was exiled for 10 years, he had to go north to Syria, he was not allowed to live in Mecca. And so, jealousy developed and see how sad is a dangerous thing in human beings. Such jealousy developed on the part of Romania, for Hashem, that the struggle continues between the Romanians and the Hashem ease. And it's still going on right now. For those of you who know Islamic history, let's take a little jump. And you will see that in Mecca itself, the
people we call polish, the Muslim King of kadesh. were basically made up of family members from Romania, and also from Abu Dhabi.
Family members of Abu Dhabi, these are the ones who had the military power, the political power, so they were literally the leaders of Mecca at the time when the province of Southern came up, and the people who are generally supporting him in the beginning and who took the leadership were coming out of the family of directly from Hashem. And so you will find that after the death of the prophet SAW Selim, the hula fowl regime took over after their time was better omega. That's where the name comes from. So the Omega dynasty that ruled for 100 years after the righteous caliphs came from Romania. And they use that name because of the struggle that went on.
After that time, Ben was a bass and our bass coming down a little bit from Hashem his son Abdulmutallab, and then Abdulmutallab children. There is Hamza al Abbas Abdullah Abu lahab, Abu Talib and Hadith. You see a bass.
From that family came the ruling dynasty called Banu or bass or the baskets. And they struggled against the Romanians. So this is how power struggles were developed amongst the Arab peoples.
What is important for us going back to Hashem. What is important for us
is that Hashem
on one of his journeys, in yathrib, which was later to be called Medina.
On one of his journeys, he he saw a woman of the hustler who was a noble woman, and by her department, how she carried herself and how she spoke. And what they said about her, he realized he was a noble woman. Her name was Selma. And so he proposed to her to marry her. And from their marriage, came their son shava
shava and his mother lived in Mecca for a period of time and then returned to yathrib to Medina,
who did a lot of traveling to the north, traveled to Syria, and he got sick in Gaza, which is now in Palestine, and he died.
And so, how Sims son
his brother was Elmo.
Elmo Talib, then wanting to connect the family went to Medina. And he brought back the son shaybah. Now when the people of Mecca saw this boy coming in with Elmo tallip running in front of him, they said, Oh, this is Abdulmutallab. That's the slave of Elmo. tallip.
And so he said, No, no, no, that's not that's not my slave. This is my brother's son. But the name Abdulmutallab stuck with the boy. That's the reason why his name is Abdul Mutallab, the slave of mortality, but his name was actually shaybah
Okay, you see, these bits of knowledge will help us you know, to to understand more the life of the Prophet peace be upon him.
was a person also, who carried this country
reasonable. It's a type of charisma. And really it starts with Jose and it comes back with abdomen F. And then with Hashem. It's something that they carry with him. It's a charisma in their body language and the generosity and the people are naturally attracted to them. Abdulmutallab was carrying this and the people would naturally attracted to him and he became also the leader of Mecca.
