La Jolla.

00:00:54--> 00:01:14

Bismillah Ar Rahman r Rahim In the name of Allah, most Gracious, Most Merciful. I send peace and blessings to all of the prophets. I asked a lot to have mercy on them and their families and all those who call to the way to the Day of Judgment. And I begin with the greeting words of the righteous. Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah.

00:01:15--> 00:01:36

In the year 1000 ad. Cordoba, known as kotoba, was the largest city on earth. And it is said by historians that this city contained over 200,000 houses, 600 mosques, 900 public baths 50 hospitals.

00:01:37--> 00:01:51

It was an amazing city. And along with Toledo, Seville, Granada and Valencia, Cordoba was one of the leading centers of learning in the world.

00:01:52--> 00:02:25

It is even said that a huge lunar water clock was in Toledo. And it was the first time that anybody used an instrument such as this. And so the word was spread through the writings of historians and through the words of travelers that are Andalusia, or Al Andalus was the most populous, cultured, industrious land in Europe for centuries.

00:02:26--> 00:02:28

This was a special title.

00:02:30--> 00:02:31

And this was

00:02:32--> 00:02:39

a level that Muslims were able to reach in a pinnacle of civilization, at this time in history.

00:02:41--> 00:02:56

But after generations of people who were striving for their faith, and building their society, the future generations began to forget. And the great historian Eben whodunnit, his macadam

00:02:57--> 00:03:17

has put together an understanding of what happens in the cyclical, or the cycle, rotation of time. And that is that in history, generally, you find the first generations Hardy and strong and struggling for the cause. But their children's children begin to forget.

00:03:18--> 00:03:29

After that generation, many of the early values are lost. And so similarly, in Al Andalus, corruption started to appear.

00:03:30--> 00:03:47

In the architecture, we start to see idols and pictures and things that did not appear in the early generations, we start to find people using wealth in a way that was unheard of in the beginning of this mighty Empire.

00:03:49--> 00:04:25

It is reported that one of their leaders element saw, went to the stage of building himself a palace azahara, outside of Cordoba, and he built it in such a way that he wanted it to be greater than any other palace that ever existed. And it was known to have a huge lake that was literally 1000s of meters wide. And in this lake, were pedals topped with a gold and a palace in the middle.

00:04:26--> 00:04:59

And it is reported by the historians that Ullman saw on one occasion went to the middle of this beautiful man made lake and when he looked around, something touched his heart and he began to cry. And he prayed that this desire this palace would never leave him. He prayed that he would always be able to enjoy such a state. But a wise man from the great scholars visited the palace and exclaimed, all Palace of the kings. Every house in this country has contributed

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

To your ultimate and perfection,

00:05:02--> 00:05:11

you will also win in ruins give materials to every house. And so it was a civil war broke out.

00:05:12--> 00:05:23

And the beautiful structure, the beautiful palace was brought down and the pieces of the palace, the marble, the porcelain,

00:05:24--> 00:05:29

it was used to build the houses of the masses of the people throughout an endless

00:05:30--> 00:06:03

and so corruption appeared in the land. Division also appeared amongst the leadership. And it is reported that instead of functioning under one state a philosophic, that small kingdoms developed called tyfa. Or tawaf, and these kingdoms were each ruled by an Amir. Each person thought that he was a mirror, meaning that he was the greatest of the leaders that will end the loose, and it caused the confusion when Muslims did not respect their central leadership.

00:06:04--> 00:06:51

Also tribal tribalism, stock the land, the Arabs started to look down on the non Arab white started to feel superior to black, Persian people, Turkish people did not feel at home, in the land of Andalusia. And so, new life was needed, and by the will of Allah subhanaw taala revivalist movements entered into Al Andalus in waves. The first wave came around 1086 when Elmore attended one of the famous rulers brought in use of Eben tashfeen Rahim Allah from Al Andalus, who was the head of a large movement called El Morabito.

00:06:52--> 00:07:21

And what I'll be doing came into Spain, and they were able to revitalize the society and bring it back to its central organization. Following this around the year 1146 Elmo Hayden, who will lead by Amir Abdul Malik also revitalized Al Andalus. But it never returned to the original beauty and organization that it had.

00:07:23--> 00:07:39

The Trinitarian army the army, the army of those who believed in three Gods began to conquer Spain. And they went from the north and started to conquer village by village, section by section until only Granada remained.

00:07:40--> 00:08:04

Granada, which is in the south, is a natural stronghold, and protection for the Muslims. Granada was located in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. And because of this mountain range and strategic position, Muslims were able to seek refuge in Granada. And we're able to stay within that valley for a long period of time.

00:08:06--> 00:08:07

Following this,

00:08:09--> 00:08:51

the other parts of Spain were living in destruction. It is said by the year 1412, that Muslims were reduced to slavery. In most of Spain, over 100,000 books were birthed from different libraries. But resistance also appeared. And Muslims recognized that they had to either fight to stand for their religion, or to make hijra to migrate to the land where they could continue to live in their faith. And so the struggle continued for a long period of time, until finally, the year 1492.

00:08:52--> 00:09:00

The last Amir of Spain, Abu Abdullah, who was known as Bo Abdel,

00:09:01--> 00:09:02

he signed the treaty

00:09:03--> 00:09:14

with the Catholic king and queen. And this treaty was based upon the fact that the Muslims would live under the trinitarians.

00:09:15--> 00:09:59

But they would be allowed to maintain their masjids at their addresses, their women would be safe, their basic culture would be safe. He signed the treaty in 1492. And within 10 years, the masjids were destroyed. The addresses were obliterated, the women were raped, and everything changed. Islam then was officially banned. And Muslims tried hard to hide their identity. A new group of people started to develop people who were appearing to be non Muslim. But yet they were actually Muslim.

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

On the inside,

00:10:02--> 00:10:41

and this is a phenomenon that appeared in Spain in Al Andalus. In such a way, as we have never seen it before, anywhere else in the Muslim world. It is reported that because of this forced conversion into Christianity, Muslims who could not take the pain and punishment of torture, were forced to claim on the outside that they were Christians and on the inside, maintain their Islam in the year 910, after the hedger about 15 or four ad affetto appeared from the Mufti Mohammed bin Juma

00:10:43--> 00:11:05

Al mahurangi, who was an andalusi and living in Morocco. And this factor is is so emotional and it is so deep. It touches on a topic that very few fatwas have ever even entered. He said to the people of Andalus, I understand, and I recognize your patience. And I praise you for what you have done.

00:11:06--> 00:11:33

But I remind you of your duties, even though you have been forced out of your religion superficially, even though you say that you are Catholic, you should remain in Islam, you should retain your faith. And so we gave them a set of principles, he gave them a system, how to function as a Muslim who has hidden in a non Muslim disguise.

00:11:34--> 00:12:27

He said to them, because you are being tortured, because you are under threat. You can't make salaat you can't practice your Islam because if they find you, they'll burn you at the stake. And so when you make your salaat make it with your eyes. He said when you pays a cat, just give it as a gift. Find somebody who is poor and needy in the categories of the cat and give him an idea. Just give him a gift. Make the attention for the cat. If you have Genova, if you are unclean ceremonially, and you need to take a whistle or bath, then swim in a lake. Dive into the ocean and say Bismillah before you dive, if you can't find water, and you need to make Tammam as you walk down the street, tap the

00:12:27--> 00:13:15

wall. That is your timer. If you are forced to bow to an idol, that bow down, you have no choice but inside yourself. recognize it is haram. Your heart should be should be much more in bill Eman inside of yourself you should be reassured of your faith. If you are forced to eat pork, now imagine the level that they went to. If you are forced to eat pork, then eat it. But know on your inside that this is haram. If you are forced to marry the People of the Book, then marry them because within Islam it is permissible to marry other keytab but if you are forced to marry your daughter to one of them, then you should know inside. What you have done is haram.

00:13:16--> 00:13:24

Even if you are forced to say Kelly metal kofa if you are forced to say the word of disbelief.

00:13:25--> 00:14:01

If you are forced to insult and curse the Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him. Then do it because you have to but no on your inside. It is a haram act that you have done. Keep your faith inside. He did this in tradition in the tradition of the province on solemn with Ahmad Eben yesterday and the family of yesterday read the law one whom who suffered in Mecca but the hearts were reassured with faith that let's take a break for a moment and then come back to this trying time for Muslims in the fall of an endless

00:14:14--> 00:14:49

if you look into the herb lithofacies early exegesis of the Quran, you will find that on the professor he was trying to find out where are the 711 weeks the natural products he can delineate the boundaries between seven different zones with the conclusion that we have seven different layers within the came to not only that was essential approval Eva would prostrate down in obedience to Allah subhanaw taala the blessings of that frustration with the rich

00:15:02--> 00:15:25

Muslims who are living in Al Andalus, found after a rule of about 200 years that they started to lose the territory. When corruption appeared in the land, when divisions between Muslims based on their race, based on their tribe based on their language. When this came in the ranks of the believers,

00:15:26--> 00:15:41

the enemies of Islam were able to attack from all sides. And so the beautiful and Volusia the beautiful garden that would be a fruit many times during the year started to lose its former glory.

00:15:42--> 00:16:14

And it is reported that refugees were pouring out of Al Andalus and spreading all over the Muslim world. Refugees went to North Africa, to the Middle East, to Turkey, even in Malaysia and Indonesia. There are places that up until now, are recognized by andalusi names. So the Muslims were forced to flee out of this country. One of the main reasons for this was a terrible system that was known as the Spanish Inquisition.

00:16:16--> 00:17:00

During this terrible period, which began in 1483. The Inquisition was a type of test that was put on by religious authorities. During this test, they would take a person and they would put you in front of the Inquisitor. The Inquisitor would ask you questions. If you said that you were a Muslim, or you were Jewish, that they would take you outside and burn you at the stake. If you said I'm not a Muslim, then they would test you to see if you responded in a positive way to the word Allah subhanaw taala. Or if you if your eyes lit up when they said Mohammed, peace and blessings be upon him.

00:17:01--> 00:17:16

any inkling of Islam was a straight sentence of death. And it is reported in one of the cases of the Spanish Inquisition as a woman named Elvira, a pregnant woman.

00:17:17--> 00:17:20

Her sin was that she did not eat pork.

00:17:21--> 00:17:26

Her sin was that she changed her lindens on Saturday.

00:17:27--> 00:17:34

So because of this, she was tortured with her child until they realized that she wasn't a Muslim.

00:17:35--> 00:17:41

And so they began to watch the people coming from the southern part of Spain.

00:17:42--> 00:18:34

They used to spy upon the Muslims. If you took a bath on Thursday night, or on Friday morning, if you put perfume on your clothing, imagine this, you are Catholic. But you take a bath on Thursday night, which could be Juma or bath on Friday morning, are you wear clean clothes on Friday, they would take you and burn you at the stake. You could not fast you could not show anything. And so people were forced to accept another way of life. It is reported that this genocide actually affected over 2 million Jews. Over 3 million Muslims were exiled from Al Andalus. And hundreds of 1000s were killed and burned at the stake. But Muslims resisted this. And there are many stories of

00:18:34--> 00:18:51

strong resistance against this oppression. So the Muslims who were known as the Maus, and they use this word more, which is from models in Spanish is dark skinned. The Maus who accepted Christianity

00:18:52--> 00:18:59

who were living in a survival manner. First call Buddha judge or Buddha.

00:19:00--> 00:19:07

And this means a survival domesticated person. Would that gel like that Joel is an imposter.

00:19:08--> 00:19:40

Later on, the name changed, and a person who went through the baptism and actually became a Christian was known as moresco. So the Muslims were called moriscos. This is a Christian more, or a Christian Muslim, and the Jews were called Marino's, and the moriscos and the Marino's were forced to wear special clothes. And they had to have badges on their clothes saying who they were. And they had separate facilities throughout the country.

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

Muslims of course, could not take this and inside their hearts they wanted to resist. And so there are many stories of people standing up for their faith and fighting to their death. There are also many stories of hegira of migration of Muslim exiles who left

00:20:00--> 00:20:50

At the lucea, and went to North Africa, and other parts of the Muslim world, in many cases, especially in North Africa, the Muslims became the Barbary pirates, who were actually Muslims on the sea, who were taking revenge for what happened to them in Spain. And they would attack the Spanish and Portuguese ships as they carry cargo along the streets and to the Mediterranean. Also, the early explorers and congress who went out of Portugal and Spain, were using Muslims in their galleys. And so if they caught any of the Barbary pirates, the punishment was to work in the galleys of a Spanish ship, or a Portuguese ship for maybe two or three years. If they found what escos or Moreno's, who

00:20:50--> 00:21:13

they didn't want in the country, the punishment was exile you work in the boats. So Christopher Columbus, and Magellan and Balboa and Vasco de Gama. All of the Portuguese and Spanish conquistador days conquer is known as explorers actually carried with them large amounts of Muslims who were hiding their identity.

00:21:15--> 00:21:41

Christopher Columbus, in July 31 1502 makes another strange report. And this shows the presence of the moresco people and the Muslims in the new world. He said that they were traveling in the Caribbean region, and they saw a boat about 40 feet long, that looked like a morish ship. There were 40 men and women on the boat.

00:21:42--> 00:22:13

The men had colored half sleeve shirts, like the ones that were worn in Granada and the women had a niqab at a type of veil over their faces, as the woman of Granada used to wear, this is clear proof of the presence of Muslims moriscos in the New World, this is clear proof that something else was going on, beside what we know as the conquest or the opening up of the New World.

00:22:15--> 00:22:51

Another report which is interesting, in 1566, the Spanish established in St. Alina in South Carolina, a colony. It was later taken by the British. But what is important is that Around this time, the people who were living in St. Alina, who were originally Spanish people again the Portuguese Spanish coming over on the boats, they went falling under the attack of the English. There people are reported to have fled into the mountains of North Carolina.

00:22:53--> 00:22:56

In 1586 Sir Francis Drake,

00:22:57--> 00:23:56

with 30 ships raided the shores of Brazil. He freed 300 Morris and Turkish galley slaves. When he reached the coast of America, the Roanoke Island. He was asked by the British people on the island to take them back to Great Britain. And he left the the Turks and the morish people go on the shore. Where did they go? They also went into the mountains in 1654. In a report comes of bearded Portuguese people. This comes from American sources of bearded what they call Portuguese people who worked in silver mines. They were silversmiths and they would drop to their knees many times per day, praying. in 1784, Tennessee governor john Sivir met morish Portuguese people. He puts it in his

00:23:56--> 00:24:51

writings in the 1700s Jonathan Swift, and Englishman married one of them, and he called them Mecca, Indians. The name that starts to come up is a name called Malaysians. And a recent publication, which comes out of America shows the Malaysians and it speaks of the Malaysians and it talks about the resurrection of a proud people. And it also mentions an untold story of ethnic cleansing in America. The author is en Brent Kennedy. He is a Malaysian person known as Patek portugais or Geechee. These people are well known in the south, living all along the coast, South Carolina, North Carolina, and especially up in the Appalachian Mountains. They were mistreated. They will force into

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

the worst territory. But when Brent Kennedy did this work, he found that there was something different about him.

00:25:00--> 00:25:53

He recognized something within his traditions. And in 1990 Dr. James Guthrie did blood samples of over 177 Milan genes. And he found that it was the same genetic makeup as people of North Africa, especially Morocco, Algeria, Libya, also the people of Iraq, the people of Spain, Cyprus, Malta, and of course, Turkey. in Turkish balangan means a person whose life has been cursed. And so it appears that they gave themselves this name because they felt that they were cursed. They were forced out of their lands. And they were forced it way into the back woods and mountains, not able to benefit from their people or their culture. But these Malaysian people are now living all over the United States.

00:25:54--> 00:26:07

And it is reported that Bill longines actually made great contributions to history. And Brent Kennedy, in looking at the presence of Malaysians in the south,

00:26:09--> 00:26:26

did a study and he said that anybody coming out of the Carolinas, out of the Appalachian region of any race, that means if the person is European, or white, if they're Native American, the red Indians, if they're African American,

00:26:27--> 00:26:58

if they are geechie, or portmagee, portugais, any of these groups with the following names, then more than likely, they are legends. Some of the names are as follows. Adams, Adkins, Bell, Bennett, Berry, bowling, Seamus, Coleman, Collins, Gibson, go ins, Hall,

00:26:59--> 00:27:00

Jackson,

00:27:01--> 00:27:03

Lopez, more

00:27:04--> 00:27:56

Mullins, Nash, Robinson, Sexton, and Williams, anybody bearing one of these names, is more than likely a Malaysian that means this person is more than likely a descendant of Muslims who had to hide their identity. We used as galley slaves, and who came into America and became part of the changing American society. Another shocking bit of information is that the wife of the President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, his wife's name was Nancy Hanks, and she was a Malaysian. another bit of information for our younger generation. And for those who are following music and pop is that Elvis Presley was a Malaysian

00:27:58--> 00:28:13

despite the infamous life of Elvis, and despite what the world might say about Malaysians, Muslims have played an important role in American society. And throughout this world, I leave you in peace Assalamu alaikum.

00:28:42--> 00:28:45

To the original beauty an organization that had had

00:28:47--> 00:29:04

the Trinitarian army the the army of those who believed in three Gods began to conquer Spain. And they went from the north and started to conquer village by village, section by section until only Granada remained.

00:29:05--> 00:29:29

Granada, which is in the south, is a natural stronghold, and protection for the Muslims. Granada was located in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. And because of this mountain range and strategic position, Muslims were able to seek refuge in Granada and were able to stay within that valley for a long period of time.

00:29:30--> 00:29:32

Following this,

00:29:33--> 00:29:59

the other parts of Spain were living in destruction. It is said by the year 1412 that Muslims were reduced to slavery. In most of Spain. Over 100,000 books were burnt from different libraries, but resistance also appeared and Muslims recognized that they had to either fight

00:30:00--> 00:30:16

To stand for their religion, or to make hijra, to migrate to the land where they could continue to live in their faith. And so the struggle continued for a long period of time, until finally, the year 1492.

00:30:17--> 00:30:24

The last Amir of Spain, Abu Abdullah, who was known as Bo Abdel.

He signed the treaty

00:32:07--> 00:32:29

Elon Musk Ravi, who was an andalusi and living in Morocco. And this factor is is so emotional and it is so deep. It touches on a topic that very few fatwas have ever even entered. He said to the people of an Andalus, I understand, and I recognize your patience. And I praise you for what you have done.

00:32:30--> 00:32:58

But I remind you of your duties, even though you have been forced out of your religion superficially, even though you say that you are Catholic, you should remain in Islam, you should retain your faith. And so he gave them a set of principles, he gave them a system, how to function as a Muslim who is hidden in a non Muslim disguise.

00:32:59--> 00:33:53

He said to them, because you are being tortured, because you are under threat. You can't make a lot. You can't practice your Islam because if they find you, they'll burn you at the stake. And so when you make your salaat make it with your eyes. He said when you pays the cat, just give it as a gift. Find somebody who is poor and needy in the categories of the cat and give him an idea. Just give him a gift. Make the intention for the cat. If you have Java, if you are unclean ceremonially, and you need to take a whistle a bath, then swim in a lake. Dive into the ocean and say Bismillah before you dive, if you can't find water, and you need to make Tom as you walk down the street, tap the wall.

Your heart should be should be much more in bill Eman inside of yourself. You should be reassured of your faith. If you are forced to eat pork, now imagine the level that they went to.

But if you are forced to marry your daughter to one of them, then you should know inside. What you have done is haram.

00:34:41--> 00:34:49

Even if you are forced to say Kelly mottle kafa. If you are forced to say the word of disbelief.

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

If you are forced to insult and curse the Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him. Then do it because you have to but no

if you look into the herb lithofacies early exegesis of the Quran, you will find that all the professors who are trying to find out where are the 711 weeks the natural or officiant can delineate the boundaries between seven different zones with the conclusion that we have seven different layers within the earth came to not only that was essentially the true believer would prostrate down in obedience to Allah subhanaw taala. The blessings of that frustration will reach the

00:36:27--> 00:36:49

Muslims who are living in Al Andalus, found after a rule of about 200 years that they started to lose the territory when corruption appeared in the land, when divisions between Muslims based on their race, based on their tribe based on their language. When this came in the ranks of the believers,

00:36:51--> 00:37:05

the enemies of Islam were able to attack from all sides. And so the beautiful and Volusia the beautiful garden that would be a fruit many times during the year started to lose its former glory.

And it is reported that refugees were pouring out of Al Andalus and spreading all over the Muslim world. Refugees went to North Africa, to the Middle East, to Turkey, even in Malaysia and Indonesia. There are places that up until now, are recognized by andalusi and names. So the Muslims were forced to flee out of this country. One of the main reasons for this was a terrible system that was known as the Spanish Inquisition.

Or if you if your eyes lit up when they said Mohammed, peace and blessings be upon him.

00:38:26--> 00:38:41

any inkling of Islam was a straight sentence of death. And it is reported in one of the cases of the Spanish Inquisition as a woman named Elvira, a pregnant woman.

00:38:42--> 00:38:45

Her sin was that she did not eat pork.

00:38:46--> 00:38:51

Her sin was that she changed her linens on Saturday.

00:38:52--> 00:38:59

So because of this, she was tortured with her child until they realized that she wasn't a Muslim.

00:39:00--> 00:39:05

And so they began to watch the people coming from the southern part of Spain.

00:39:07--> 00:39:59

They used to spy upon the Muslims. If you took a bath on Thursday night, or on Friday morning, if you put perfume on your clothing, imagine this. You are Catholic. But you take a bath on Thursday night, which could be Juma or bath on Friday morning, or you wear clean clothes on Friday. They would take you and burn you at the stake. You could not fast you could not show anything. And so people were forced to accept another way of life. It is reported that this genocide actually affected over 2 million Jews. Over 3 million Muslims were exiled from Al Andalus and hundreds of 1000s were killed and burned at the stake. But Muslims resisted this. And there are many stories of

00:39:59--> 00:39:59

struggle

00:40:00--> 00:40:16

resistance against this whole pressure. So the Muslims who were known as the Maus, and they use this word more, which is from models in Spanish is dark skinned. The Maus, who accepted Christianity

00:40:17--> 00:40:24

who were living in a survival manner, were first called Buddha judge or Buddha.

00:40:25--> 00:40:31

And this means a survival domesticated person. Would that gel like that Joel is an imposter.

00:40:33--> 00:41:05

Later on, the name changed, and a person who went through the baptism and actually became a Christian was known as moresco. So the Muslims were called moriscos. This is a Christian more, or a Christian Muslim, and the Jews were called Marino's, and the moriscos and the Marino's were forced to wear special clothes. And they had to have badges on their clothes saying who they were. And they had separate facilities throughout the country.

00:41:06--> 00:41:55

Muslims, of course, could not take this. And inside their hearts, they wanted to resist. And so there are many stories of people standing up for their faith and fighting to their death. There are also many stories of hegira of migration of Muslim exiles who left Andalusia and went to North Africa and other parts of the Muslim world. In many cases, especially in North Africa, the Muslims became the Barbary pirates, who were actually Muslims on the sea, who were taking revenge for what happened to them in Spain. And they would attack the Spanish and Portuguese ships as they carry cargo, along the streets and to the Mediterraneans. Also, the early explorers and Congress, who went

00:41:55--> 00:42:38

out of Portugal and Spain, were using Muslims in their galleys. And so if they caught any of the Barbary pirates, the punishment was to work in the galleys of a Spanish ship, or a Portuguese ship for maybe two or three years. If they found what Eskimos or Moreno's, who they didn't want in the country, the punishment was exile you work in the boats. So Christopher Columbus, and Magellan and Bell Boa and Vasco de Gama. All of the Portuguese and Spanish conquistador days conquer is known as explorers actually carried with them large amounts of Muslims who were hiding their identity.

00:42:39--> 00:43:06

Christopher Columbus, in July 31 1502 makes another strange report. And this shows the presence of the moresco people and the Muslims in the new world. He said that they were traveling in the Caribbean region, and they saw a boat about 40 feet long, that looked like a morish ship. There were 40 men and women on the boat.

00:43:07--> 00:43:37

The men had colored half sleeve shirts, like the ones that were worn in Granada and the women had a niqab and a type of veil over their faces as the woman of Grenada used to wear this is clear proof of the presence of Muslims and moriscos. In the New World. This is clear proof that something else was going on, beside what we know as the conquest or the opening up of the New World.

00:43:40--> 00:44:16

Another report which is interesting, in 1566, the Spanish established in St. Alina in South Carolina, a colony. It was later taken by the British, but what is important is that Around this time, the people who are living in St. Alina, who were originally Spanish people again the Portuguese Spanish coming over on the boats, they went falling under the attack of the English. There are people are reported to have fled into the mountains of North Carolina.

00:44:17--> 00:44:21

In 1586 Sir Francis Drake,

00:44:22--> 00:44:59

with 30 ships raided the shores of Brazil. He freed 300 morish and Turkish galley slaves. When you reach the coast of America, the Roanoke Island. He was asked by the British people on the island to take them back to Great Britain. And he left the the Turks and the morish people go on the shore. Where did they go? They also went into the mountains in 1654. In a report comes of bearded Portuguese people. This comes from American sources of bearded

00:45:00--> 00:45:59

What they call Portuguese people who worked in silver mines. They were silversmiths and they would drop to their knees many times per day praying. in 1784, Tennessee governor john Sivir met morish Portuguese people. He puts it in his writings in the 1700s. Jonathan Swift, an Englishman, married one of them, and he called them Mecca, Indians. The name that starts to come up is a name called Malaysians. And a recent publication, which comes out of America shows the Malaysians and it speaks of the Malaysians and it talks about the resurrection of a proud people. And it also mentions an untold story of ethnic cleansing in America. The author is an Brent Kennedy. He is a Malaysian

00:46:00--> 00:46:53

person known as Patek portugais. Or Geechee. These people are well known in the south, living all along the coast, South Carolina, North Carolina, and especially up in the Appalachian Mountains. They were mistreated, they will force into the worst territory. But when Brent Kennedy did this work, he found that there was something different about him. He recognized something within his traditions. And in 1990, Dr. James Guthrie did blood samples of over 177 Milan genes. And he found that it was the same genetic makeup as people of North Africa, especially Morocco, Algeria, Libya, also the people of Iraq, the people of Spain, Cyprus, Malta, and of course, Turkey. in Turkish

00:46:54--> 00:47:32

balangan means a person whose life has been cursed. And so it appears that they gave themselves this name because they felt that they were cursed. They were forced out of their lands, and they were forced way into the back woods and mountains, not able to benefit from their people or their culture. But these Malaysian people are now living all over the United States. And it is reported that Malaysians actually made great contributions to history. And Brent Kennedy, in looking at the presence of Malaysians in the south,

00:47:33--> 00:47:51

did a study and he said that anybody coming out of the Carolinas out of the Appalachian region of any race that means if the person is European, or white, if their native american, the red Indians, if they're African American,

00:47:52--> 00:48:22

if they are geechie, or portmagee, portugais any of these groups with the following names, then more than likely, they are legends. Some of the names are as follows. Adams, Adkins, Bell, Bennett, Berry, bowling, chavis, Coleman, Collins, Gibson, go ins Hall,

00:48:23--> 00:48:24

Jackson,

00:48:25--> 00:48:28

low pace, more

00:48:29--> 00:49:21

Mullins, Nash, Robinson, Sexton and Williams. Anybody bearing one of these names, is more than likely a Malaysian that means this person is more than likely a descendant of Muslims who had to hide their identity, who were used as galley slaves, and who came into America and became part of the changing American society. Another shocking bit of information is that the wife of the President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, his wife's name was Nancy Hanks, and she was a Malaysian. another bit of information for our younger generation, and for those who are following music and pop is that Elvis Presley was a Malaysian

00:49:22--> 00:49:38

despite the infamous life of Elvis, and despite what the world might say about Malaysians, Muslims have played an important role in American society and throughout this world. I leave you in peace Assalamu alaikum
