00:00:28--> 00:01:12

Tonight's listening shall Mata Allah is about a noble Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once is sitting among his companions, and he describes this companion by saying, in agenda thelotter stelco lfls illa Mel what either Ali or either Sandman navicent Allahu alayhi wa sallam is sitting among his companions. And he says to them that this the paradise it longs for three people. The paradise can't wait to meet three people they are Lee and Amal and sunburn Obi Allahu anhu maschmeyer and it also Panama there are millions and millions that can't wait to meet the paradise and can't wait to enter the paradise. But who are the

00:01:12--> 00:01:39

few that the paradise itself can't wait to meet them and it longs to see them silver Robby Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam describes him as being one of these people. In another instance in the bucilla Mohali, your solemn is sitting among his companions will sell man is in the gathering and he places his hand on sunburn obeah Mohan when he says lo gana Lee man we're in the four year letter now.

00:01:41--> 00:01:42

All he said Lin Allahu

00:01:45--> 00:02:28

Allah Allah your salami places his hand on sunburn. And he says that if he man if he man if the dean if it was in the foyer. In other words, if it was at the furthest, if it was located at the further star from this earth, then people like Sandman would have reached that URI they would have made some sort of space shuttle they would have made some sort of rocket and they would have got the the determination and the will that submit all the Allahu anhu had until he arrived to the truth and to the to the guidance was something that is incredible and unbelievable. And this is why we are going to find out Yani we're going to find out how real This statement is about survival the Allahu anhu

00:02:28--> 00:02:37

when we look into his life, he was nicknamed quadrille happy that his nickname Jani the searcher for the truth. And he was also known as

00:02:38--> 00:03:19

the Sandman full of goodness. He has an amazing, incredible story, that even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he heard it, he loved it so much, because of the valuable lessons and the wisdoms that he offers and it contains. And he loved it so much that he made some more of the alojado repeat the entire story again in front of the companions, and the companions would memorize this story. And they would narrate it to their children and to generation after generation until it reached us and we narrate it as well. And it will be narrated until the day of judgment. This is how amazing and incredible this story is. And that's the bulk of Allah subhanho wa Taala placed in this

00:03:19--> 00:04:04

story, my brothers and sisters in Islam, the story of silverhill faricy, or the Allahu anhu is a true story that happened on the face of this earth many many years ago. And the reason for why we study this story is so that we refresh our commitment and our steadfastness upon the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala in a time, where we are in desperate need, of always reviewing and rechecking our event and our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. The story of my brothers and sisters in Islam is about a man who left his family, never to be reunited with them ever again. And for that, Allah subhanho wa Taala he replaced him with a much better family, and that is the family of the

00:04:04--> 00:04:49

believers. And he left his hometown, only to come back to Persia as an amine, during the healer, for of all the Allahu anhu when they conquered Persia, and he left his world. And Allah subhanho wa Taala replaced it with something that money can't buy, and that is guidance itself. And he left his desires and he left the temptations and desires of this world. He left work and he left marriage and he left opening a Jani family and children and all that he left the role for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala in search of the truth, until eventually he Yanni united with the truth and united with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my brothers and sisters in Islam. Yeah, and everything

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

you need to understand this disclaimer at the very beginning. Everything you and I went through and keep going through in this life of trials and tests and tribulations.

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

In search of Allah and guidance salmela Allahu anhu went through it all. And he went through a lot worse and much worse than anyone has ever been through in search of guidance and in search of a relationship with Allah subhanaw taala. Why do I say this, Danny, in other words, if this is the situation of sunburn, and even after all this hardship, he found the guidance and he found the path to Allah. It leaves no one with an excuse not to find the loss of Hannah Donna, and not to search for this guidance that Allah subhanho wa Taala taught mankind sinabi Allahu anhu. During his time as he searching for the truth, he had no profit to direct him. And he had no righteous friend around

00:05:44--> 00:06:18

him to motivate him and keep him encouraged. And there were no books to read. And there was no YouTube and there was no Google to research. All he had was his intellect and his freedom at the beginning, and his strong will and determination. And these were gifts that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him he spent many years in searching for the truth will understand or realize just exactly what we mean by how many E's so the story begins, and selectively Allahu anhu he was born almost the same time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born.

00:06:19--> 00:07:00

And he lived many on he lived many years on after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his destiny Lola mo home Allah they know right, that Selma will be Allahu anhu he lived the entire life of Rasulullah sallam, he lived the life of a worker killer for Formula One. And he died in the year of 33 of visual he died and he was 83 years old. So he lived past in the vsam Allahu alayhi wa sallam. And what we're going to speak about the story of his that we're going to share his solidarity, the Allahu anhu his life up until he meets in the vsam Allahu alayhi wa sallam of lions. He has a longer story after that, but we're just going to only focus on the narration that he

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

narrates, which is his life up until he meets an AVI sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And I really cannot promise that I will finish the story tonight. And if that's the case, we have melee dial. And next Wednesday, we'll do part two in the conclusion of the story. The point my brothers and sisters is not to go through the story, just narrate a story. We're not here for storytelling, only the story, I could share it with you in 15 minutes, and we're done. That's not the point. The point is what makes this story incredible, and what makes it amazing. And so with every lesson and with every wisdom, and with every opportunity of extracting some guidance from the lesson, we're going to stop

00:07:37--> 00:08:18

and we're going to make a point and we're going to see how this is relevant for our times today. The story stands up until this day very relevant for the life of each and every single person that is looking for a path to a loss of Hannah who are looking for a path and how to remain firm and committed upon the deen of Allah until he meets Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's the challenge for each and every single person and no better than salmonberry Allahu anhu story to shed light on this on this purpose. So he begins the story and salmela the Allahu anhu he says controversial and fairy cm in Laos for him in Korea in your code with a j or j yen. So he says I was a Persian. I was

00:08:18--> 00:08:27

approached from Ferris from the people have asked us for him is modern day Iran. And it's sent to Iran. It's right in the middle of Iran this

00:08:28--> 00:08:38

and he said I came from a town known as gn and the people of this town, including Sandman and the family of sunburn. their religion was unmeasured.

00:08:40--> 00:09:21

Right? So they weren't Zoroastrians This is what you see is Zoroastrians basically these are people that worship the fire, what can I be the karate, and he said, and my father, he was the priest of the Zoroastrian church in Isfahan. His father was a priest. He was someone huge in the town. And his father wasn't only a priest, but his father was also the leader of the sasanian, one of the leaders of the sasanian Empire. This is Yani, there's an empire that existed at the time, the sassanians, they ruled Persia from the third century up until seek the 651 where the Muslims came and they conquered under the leadership of

00:09:22--> 00:09:48

the Allahu anhu. So his father is not only a priest in the church, but he's also a leader of an empire. So you can imagine that his father's income is much more than everyone else, his father's a wealthy man. So, the alojado he says he continues, he's giving us now something about his family to understand what position he was in, and how much he sacrificed. He continues and he says, Welcome to the hunkeler he

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

and he says, Jani I was the most beloved creation of a lot to my father. Danny's father loved him so much that he literally imprisoned

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

mean home, and he did not allow him to go and see anyone or to leave the house. That's literal habits. hanafy Beatty, he prisoned me in the house and silver of the Allahu anhu. He says

00:10:12--> 00:10:18

Jani. Welcome to mula Zima. Now, and I was in charge of the file, and he says,

00:10:19--> 00:10:59

I wish to have to film as you see here. Now, since he's at home, he can't go anywhere. He said, I put lots of hard work and effort in my religion in any in the religion that he's upon worshipping the fire, lots of women in Korean determination, and so on. And what we learned from this, my brothers and sisters in Islam is that if the people of falsehood, they take their religion serious, and they put lots of hard work and effort in it, he says he's too young. I put so much effort in this deal, and they are upon falsehood. How much more serious? Does the believer supposed to take his deep? Right when he's upon the truth? For you can understand these are the people of falsehood,

00:10:59--> 00:11:12

and look how serious they take their religion for Yoni Subhana Allah, how much more serious and how much more effort is the believer supposed to put in his own religion or loss of Hannah horadada he says in the end of sola, Lanka bode well Lavina

00:11:13--> 00:11:25

rufina, those who put a lot of hard work and effort in the sake of unlocking the power of a law, the result is the unknown sabudana we will surely guide them to our path, we're in the Lucha Lama.

00:11:26--> 00:12:10

And Allah subhanho wa Taala is with those who put lots of hard work and effort in the ideal scenario, the alojado from the very beginning, he put lots of hard work, he's putting lots of hard work in his in his own religion and his worship. And he says, I worked so hard until I became a proper noun, until I was appointed the custodian of the fire. This is a big position, it's not an easy position, he became in charge of the fire, and he now has the responsibility to make sure that this fire is on 24 seven and it does not extinguish you need to understand something. The Zoroastrians this religion. They believe that the universe has two creators, they believe that

00:12:10--> 00:12:17

darkness and light, these are the two creators of the universe. And they believe that the greatest source of light is fire.

00:12:18--> 00:13:01

And if the fire is on, that means there is light. And if there is light, that means goodness is created, this is what they believe. So they believe that light creates goodness and darkness, it creates the evil. And this is why the fire has to be kept on 24 hours of the day, seven days of the week. Because as long as the fire is on, goodness is created, and harmony is on Earth. If it turns off this is when evil is created. This is their belief. Well, this is a call for one year the villa. So he became in charge and responsible of this position that he needs to make sure the fire is on 24. Seven. He said, we can at least be able to now FEMA, and he said my father owned a massive

00:13:01--> 00:13:40

property, a huge farm. This is a boy, his boustead a huge farm. His dad owned a massive farm and only a few people at the time would own something like this. So his father now he's really emphasized how wealthy his father is. He's in a high position already. He's a leader of an empire. He has a property he has farms he has gardens like no one else. He owns an empire. So a lot of the alojado he says pollen, for sure Isla Abbeyfield buena de la jolla omen for coronally, Yamuna. tofi bruneian in heaven, Yom ambiente, for the hub for polio. So

00:13:41--> 00:14:22

he says, And one day, my father got really, really busy at work. And he was busy with another project. And he came to salvation for the first time. And he says to my son, I'm getting really busy with a building I'm constructing. Look, there's a building that he's constructing, how much more does he have? And how much What's the idea of how much does his father possess, and the child is living is living a life of a king. Watch what he's about to sacrifice. He says, so my father comes in, he says, Son, I'm really busy in a project. And there's some buildings I'm constructing, can you go to the farm and look after it instead of me? Look after the farm instead of he's giving him a

00:14:22--> 00:14:24

responsibility for the first time.

00:14:25--> 00:14:25

And

00:14:26--> 00:14:38

he says, and my father gave me specific instructions of what to do on the farm. So send out all the laundry says for how to do by auto. Finally, for the first time in my life, and

00:14:40--> 00:14:59

they see he was about 16 years of age at this time. He left his house for the first time going to start the first day of work on a farm that belongs to his father. And he said to be Kenny city Minka is in Nevada, and as I'm on my way to the farm of my father, I passed

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

by a church, that is for the Christians, of course, this is where speaking about Persia. So Christianity also was the dominant religion at the time. So he said, I passed by it. And I heard some noises from inside. And they were praying. He heard something's up there. The Christians, they're reciting there, they're solid, they pray, well come to agreement. They have a big beta he. And he says, I had no clue what people used to do. Because my father, prison me in the house for so many years. I was very unsocial. I don't know what people are doing. I'd walk on the street, and I'm confused about what the people are doing. For Panama, we learn something here. We learn there is

00:15:41--> 00:16:18

something here that each and every single parent is supposed to avoid when they raise their children. And that is that some people do to the concern they have for the children, due to the love they have for their children. What do they do, they don't leave their children to go anyway. They don't allow them to mix with anyone. They don't want them to meet with anyone. They're at home. 24, seven, homeschooling, Saturday and Sunday at home, not meeting with anyone also Panama when the kid is 1617 years old. He doesn't know anything in life, no experience whatsoever, then even a normal conversation with someone he doesn't know how to handle and deal with it. This is something that is

00:16:18--> 00:16:54

wrong. Jani, the father is not going to teach these social skills to his child, it's not going to happen. The child is going to learn this from outside and from the world that he meets. And so we learn here, my brothers and sisters in Islam, that when we raised our children in a community or in any society, let them be with the community, but keep a close eye on their movement and on their behavior. You need to keep the close eye but you do not deprive them and pull them all out from society. Eventually, when they're 1618 yani they're running around and have no idea on social skills and how to carry themselves in life. This is very wrong in what his father did. And so, so badly

00:16:54--> 00:17:41

alojado he admits this. And he says there are three now munez I had no idea what people used to do. So Pamela, for them, he says, For model to be more severe to the home, the holiday, the hell to lay him on a milestone. He said, I passed by this church. And I heard I heard their prayers. I got interested. So I walked in to see what they were doing. On furama A to whom are Shabbat Neo sola tomorrow him to feed me him. He said when I saw them, the way they were praying, I admired their solid, I fell in love with it. And I became passionate about their religion, or SubhanAllah. My brothers in Islam, my brothers and sisters, up until this day, the worship of a solid is the most

00:17:41--> 00:18:21

incredible worship in terms of its positive effect on people. There is no one that sees a solid, and there is no one that learns about a solid, except that that becomes the door of his guidance. This is in the past. And up until this day, one of the biggest reasons for why people enter Islam is because of the solid, the sea, and the organization and the the pure nature and the tranquility and the peace that the people experience in their solid will Subhanallah even those that are misguided and come back to the guidance of Islam. What do they begin with, the first thing they begin with is their five solemn oath and they do not avoid it and they do not leave it. So narrowly. Allahu anhu

00:18:22--> 00:19:07

is telling us that the first thing that hit his heart and struck his heart and had a positive effect on him, was the salette of the Christians in their church. And he remembers it, and he narrates it with us in this narration are going to, as he looks at that, and he admires and is observing this salette of the Christians. He said, what law he has been in love in LA. He said he shocked. He's astonished, he says will love this religion of theirs is way better than the religion we are upon. And who is right about that? Because their religion is about worshipping the fire. And it doesn't make sense to him. How do we worship the fire and call and ask the fire? And the fire asks us for

00:19:07--> 00:19:56

more wood so you can stay on? Doesn't make sense. And Christianity, it makes more sense than any other religion at the time. Yeah, it was obviously 100% obviously it was better than Jani Alma Hosea, the worshipers of the fire Christianity was better than at least Christianity. It came from the sky originally it came from the sky. You know, even with the millions of errors that are within it, there is some truth inside of it. So select Ravi Allahu anhu. His heart, his inclination, it Jani. It came in line and in synchronized with a novel idea with Christianity. And he said, I did not leave the church until sunset. He took an oath he said one morning, I did not leave them until

00:19:56--> 00:20:00

sunset. You know Subhanallah Why? Because he was amazing.

00:20:00--> 00:20:42

He was looking and observing there so that the entire day until sunset. And because he's a young boy, and the night is not safe for people at this age to be outside, that's why he rushes back home and he packs up and he goes home. Otherwise you would have raised stayed there the entire night and the next day and the day after, and so on. But he had to leave and had to go home by sunset, because it's getting late, it's getting dark. And he says, and I forgot all about my father's farm, and I did not go to it. So he says, just before he left them, he said to them, for going to the home in Oslo where the dean, he said to them, can I ask you one question? Where is the source of your

00:20:42--> 00:21:26

religion? Where did this religion originate from? They respond the theme they said a sham in the in the in the lives of a sham. Also Pamela here and obviously the religions This is always that's where the origin was a sham. So he is this and you need to understand this important question you ask, shall bear of the Ummah one who is not settling for anything cheap. He's He's in serious pursuit of the truth. So the first question is interested in where is the origin and I know you people are upon goodness, but give me the straight to the foundation straight to the source of this Deen. So they said, they said the Shem polyphenol Zhang to Isla de Vaca Botha few Pallavi Mashallah, who was able

00:21:26--> 00:22:05

to animate equally, he said, finally, I returned to my father at sunset. And my father had sent a search party after me so they can locate where I am. Then his father loves him so much. Now he missed them. He sent a search party to locate him. And he said, I disrupted the day for my father. I totally ruined his day. He called for a measure to call a play icon. And I'm gonna hit to LA gonna hit when he first when the father first source has met will be alone. I know. He said to him, son, where have you been? Where are you? Didn't I give you clean instructions on what to do?

00:22:06--> 00:22:19

So won who he says Jabra T Mobile to be nasty new soluna Phil camisa de Melo, a to mendini him follow him as into the Hata harati shops. He said my father,

00:22:20--> 00:22:59

I passed by a church, I was on my way to the farm. And I passed by a church. And there were people praying inside of it. And I loved what I saw. And I stayed there until sunset, and I didn't have the time to go to the farm. We didn't have a mouse and barrel, the other one we could have lived. And he could have avoided all this together. But he preferred to speak the truth of the loved one. And we learn from this that no matter what situation and no matter what circumstance you're stuck in, it doesn't matter. You learn to speak the truth. Listen to the truth one day, it will come and it will be of benefit to you allows origin he says all along had that he only and fell for the keynote on

00:22:59--> 00:23:24

the Day of Judgment, loss or hell. He says it's a day in which those who spoke honesty and spoke words of truth that will be of benefit to them on that day with it the believer, the one that searching for truth cannot lie. It's not part of him. And the fact that Salah robiola, one who speaks the truth, even though he could have lied and avoided this entire confrontation with his father teaches your house and see and how honest this man was in search of the truth.

00:23:25--> 00:23:26

So

00:23:27--> 00:23:49

the father, he said to him, my son, there is no goodness in their religion. Don't ever turn there don't go again. There's no goodness in that religion. Okay, what's the proof? Oh, father? What's the proof that Christianity is no good? Listen to what he gave him. Listen to the explanation. He's giving you some to understand how limited the knowledge his father was. He said, Tim, de nuke our Dino

00:23:51--> 00:24:05

mendini him. He said, our religion and the religion of your forefathers and ancestors. It must be better than their religion. Is that the proof? What's this? Kenny? This is no proof. Somehow the law? Yeah. And he said

00:24:06--> 00:24:47

he did not die for this. You know, he didn't die for these words. And he said to him was he in the new home? You don't mean de de la. He said these are scolding words, words of strength and courage. He said they will love their religion is way better than our religion. You need to understand something similar of a loved one who is not being rude to his father. But solero. The Allahu anhu realizes that this is not just a normal argument between him and his dad. He realizes this is a battle between the false hood and the truth with his father. And so he's not going to buy for something that is false, something that will lead him to learn. So he stands before his father as

00:24:47--> 00:24:52

though his father's an enemy of yours. And the father sees the son as an enemy. And he says to him,

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

he stands with strong words. And he says to him, No, not at all. How In other words, you're seeing that

00:25:00--> 00:25:45

The fathers in the grandfather's it's impossible for them to make an error. What's this kind of explanation? How do you explain that that the dean is authentic because of that he didn't buy for that. And he said to him one law, he their religion is way better than ours. color for offering for shala, piden, mahabis and ecvt. He said number one when he says, My dad looked really worried, he was angry. So he put iron shackles on my feet. And he looked at me listen to what he said, he locked me inside his house, he prisoned me inside his house. Now, I know he doesn't say he prisoned me in our house. He says in his house, it's as well. He's saying it's over between me and my father. This

00:25:45--> 00:26:28

is a war between the truth hood, the truth and the falsehood. So he says he shackled my feet with iron fetish. And he he tied me he chased me inside the house. Once again. SubhanAllah we learned something here. And that is my brothers and sisters in Islam, that throughout history. And even till this day, anyone, anyone who has authority, or leadership, he carries a leadership position. When his followers contradict him in his dm, when his followers contradict him in his religion, they take advantage of their authority and leadership. They abuse it, and they abuse those beneath them. And it doesn't matter who it is, even if it's their own children, even if it's their most beloved

00:26:28--> 00:27:10

children. Look at this extra explanation Allah Subhana Allah nowadays, we look around, we look left and right. And we see our brothers and sisters in Islam around the world, being tortured in prison and persecuted and so on. My brothers, there's nothing different. This this even happened to celeb Obi Allahu anhu. And this is father if he sees his father, and this is the most beloved something his father, but you need to learn this is the tradition of a law upon the sincere righteous believers. What happens to them that even every single time they oppose the leader in religious and belief matters. Almost all of a sudden they fall victims to torture the prosecution team prison.

00:27:10--> 00:27:19

Look at this example. And if the father didn't spare his son, why would you? Why would he expect that the enemy of a law he's going to spare the believers from being imprisoned and tortured.

00:27:20--> 00:28:02

alone. A great lesson that we learned in this segment will be a loved one now he's spending another time in the house. Now this time his feet a shackle to change. And he's imprisoned. So so not all the alojado he says bathroom masala for peltola. home, I sent a letter to the Christians I sent a letter to the church. He sent it with someone, a friend of yours. He came by the window he gave him a letter he said go give it to the priest in the church. What's in this letter? He wrote in this letter please. If a caravan from a sham comes to poesia comes to Iran for trade purposes. Once they want to leave and go back to Sham notify me because I'm going to hop out of my house and I'm going

00:28:02--> 00:28:42

to jump onto the caravan and they're going to take me and carry me to a ship. He's planned that out. So his friends said no worries. He took the letter he gave it to the priest in the church and they understand exactly what Sandman wants. So send out all the Allahu anhu he says for Kadima Halima Mina share me Tisha de Mina masala, he says so, a few days a few weeks went by, and a caravan carrying trade and business. It arrived from a sham until he reached Iran. And they told him the caravan is here. So now he's preparing himself another 678 days and the there the caravan is going to leave. And so during this time, it begins to prepare himself. Imagine this is That's him. This is

00:28:42--> 00:29:26

his final view of the house. No goodbye to his mother, no goodbye to his father. He drops everything where it is. And he says, I managed to add a marriage layer from Maharashtra who had to share when I learned that they're about to pack up and leave to assure him he says I broke off the shackles from my feet. Allahu Allah and how how did he remove them? It wasn't mentioned, but very important to understand that whoever is honest and sincere with Allah, Allahu Allah subhanho wa Taala will make a way from for him from a way in which he will never realize and he would never expect. And this is exactly what's happening with Sal, Bella Bella Juan. He managed to break these chains in the eye and

00:29:26--> 00:29:37

feathers from his foot. And he says, I jumped out of the house, and I rushed to the caravan. I got to the caravan. I hopped with them, and they took me all the way to a sham.

00:29:39--> 00:29:40

Once I arrived to a sham

00:29:43--> 00:29:59

of bolu he had the dean, the first question he asked, when he got there, he said to the people who is the best and the most knowledgeable person in this religion. You have the determination. He didn't say just Can you take me to someone that has some knowledge

00:30:00--> 00:30:14

Your attorney kind of Christian I learned from him, he's not settling for too cheap. This is your deal. He can't settle for something cheap. He says take me to the best. And the most knowledgeable of the Christians here. My brothers and sisters in Islam here we learn something huge,

00:30:16--> 00:30:58

a D and a D. And it's not a game religion is not a game. No isn't some random news that you can take from any source. Indian religion is supposed to be taken from its origins from the Quran and from the authentic sadhana. And if you do not understand the Quran and the Sunnah, and you're not able to derive rulings from it, then you're supposed to go back to the scholars and to the people of knowledge, those who are most proud of what Allah preached in the Quran. And he said, for the victory in quantum let alone as the people of knowledge if you had no ID today, yeah, what's the disaster today? A person opens up a fake Facebook profile account fake. He reads a little bit of

00:30:58--> 00:31:39

news from here, watches something on YouTube from here, and he begins to post about huge matters concerning this religion, and the people follow him. And he asked the people happier, why did you follow him? Follow his speaking the truth he's upon the truth was upon Allah began in my brothers and sisters in Islam. Not everyone that speaks the truth is qualified to teach the religion. Not everyone that speaks the truth is qualified to give a football. We need to differentiate between a scholar, a student of knowledge, a lecturer, a preacher, a researcher, the Imam of the masjid a famous reciter a person that has a large following on on social media you will need to differentiate

00:31:39--> 00:32:18

between these types of people concerning the deen not everyone that makes himself available and public becomes qualified to speak about the religion and issue verdict and fatawa to the people. Allah subhanho wa Taala when he spoke about the footplate in the Quran, he ascribed to himself, he said we are stiff tuna caffeine Nisa, Cooley Law who have tea comfy him and they asked you about a ruling concerning woman say a law will give you a footwear regarding them. At the when you rush to give the footwork you made yourself in that same level in where you want to give the footwear just like like how a month gives a footwear. You need to be very careful my brothers and sisters in

00:32:18--> 00:32:57

Islam, how you carry yourself and who you take your deen from Yani so Panama is a dream, a dream required a fatwa. In surah Yousuf Yousuf Ali salam, he says, Jani the people come and they come to us with a prophet. And they say to yourself, you also did our inner fee survey because they required a fatwa for a dream. Imagine that a dream required a fatwa. Can you imagine them? The greater and the more complex matters an issue of the religion? So Pamela, what kind of person do they require for someone to begin to speak about issues like this shaken Islam and Tamia Rahim Allah He said

00:32:58--> 00:33:05

that the one who is asked a question, and he doesn't know the answer, but he guesses the answer.

00:33:06--> 00:33:45

And also Pamela coincidence, it turns out correct what he said. He said such a person is sinful, because initially he spoke without knowledge. Even though the answer is right. We don't look at that. The what what, what brought him what pushed him to speak, he spoke without knowledge. And as a result, such a person is sinful, and hamdulillah. Today, the scholars of Islam are pleading, and there are many around the world. And there is not a single excuse for anyone to say, I didn't find the right people of knowledge. And there was no one to ask. So I had to message someone fake on the internet. And, and and this is why I've ended up how I there is no excuse for such a people. So this

00:33:45--> 00:34:27

is why some men are the Allahu anhu. As soon as he arrives to a sham, he asks for the most knowledgeable person in Christianity. He's teaching us here that do not settle for anyone in your religion. Your Deen will either take you to the paradise or it will either take you to Santa Maria Villa for men of blue hair, the dean also Subhanallah when he asked this question man of bolo have a dean. It's as though he's saying, look, I didn't have time to waste. Take me straight to the best. I didn't. I only came here for one reason. And he didn't sit with anyone. He didn't socialize with anyone. So they said to him call or scarf, they said to the bishop, what is the if you're asking

00:34:27--> 00:34:59

about the most knowledgeable, the most knowledgeable is I know scoff the bishop. So the Integration Center will be a long one. He says call to the fair here, fell forward here. I immediately rushed and I went to him. Can you see he did not sit on the side with someone didn't do some tourism in the land before he goes through for honest immediately he picked himself and he went straight to Moscow straight to the bishop teaching us that a Muslim is not a young Muslim. He does not waste his time and he should not waste his

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

time until your time is your life worth Assad Allah He rushes to the church, and he comes to this stuff. He comes to this bishop.

00:35:08--> 00:35:09

And he said, Well, the Allahu anhu,

00:35:10--> 00:35:23

he began to speak with this bishop. And he said to him, I am inspired by this religion, Christianity, and I desire to be with you, and I want to serve you. Somebody's saying this to the bishop,

00:35:24--> 00:35:57

send them the novel, and the honorable companion of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wants to be a servant. Yes, no problems. If it brings him closer to the truth, he is willing to do anything. And he said, and I want to learn from you. And I want to pray with you shall Subhan Allah Subhan Allah, Allahu anhu, you will find him along his journey, always offering to do three two things to the bishops he meets, he meets plenty of Bishops. But each one he meets, he offers always to do two things and you can learn something from these two things. Number one,

00:35:58--> 00:36:41

he offers to be a servant, he offers to serve and service the community for free. Why? Because that would earn him the love and the respect of the people. And the other thing he offers to do is to pray and to learn his solid and to learn his deal with the bishop. Why? Because a solid is a relationship between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so when one prays, he owns the love of Allah subhanaw taala. You see, serving the people earns you their love. Praying earns you the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is exactly what he does. Throughout his journey. These two things are for the whole for the whole tomato. So the bishop seemed to be impressed. He said to him,

00:36:41--> 00:36:47

okay, no problems. Come in, and I will take you under my guardianship, and you can be a student of mine.

00:36:49--> 00:36:50

On again, I was

00:36:53--> 00:37:03

with him a few weeks, and he begins to describe him. And he says, Wow, this was off. This, this Bishop was a corrupt bishop. He was evil. Can a model nurse where

00:37:04--> 00:37:47

he used to come out to the people and he used to encourage them to give a sadhaka donation is to encourage them. Yeah, people give donation. Our brothers and sisters are dying overseas. And there's the poor and there's the DD give the soda. And the people used to give the silica and he used to take it and he used to treasure it for himself until I counted seven bags of gold and silver that he treasured. And he did he didn't give anyone from the sadhaka say he says Canada will assume I did not like him for about a bunch of either. I hated him like I've never hated anyone before. So pirate Allah said not only Amano, he saw this. But he wasn't able to say anything. He wasn't able to go out

00:37:47--> 00:38:15

and notify the people. You know why? Because he just arrived to the town. And yesterday he made those coffee yesterday he sat down with the bishop. And this Bishop is well respected, and he's loved by the community, for he forgives the people on Sundays. And he answers the questions. And you know, he takes care of their spiritual affairs. safecell man dares to speak a word against him. Almost immediately, they'll kill him. So from his wisdom, he remains silent. He doesn't say anything.

00:38:16--> 00:38:55

So Pamela, listen to this Sunday will be a long one took his first teacher in religion turned out to be a thief turned out to be evil and corrupt. And that did not come in the way of silver or the alojado. And he did not give up looking for guidance and looking for the truth because of this. Nowadays, what happens? You have someone that if he came into the dean for the first day, and he realized from the shirt, He's a thief, or is a liar what happens that Majid they all lie his brother, they steal the money of the people, and they speak this and they speak them Hello. So I gave up altogether. I'm not gonna follow anymore. And and that's it almost all of a sudden, that's

00:38:55--> 00:39:15

the only one excuse that was enough for you to deter you from the Empire, the smell of the Aloha, no, look at his experience. First teacher turns out to be a thief. But that shouldn't affect you in the path of Allah subhanaw taala a thief dropping and move on, that the judge should not affect you. people that do that. So Panama Yani, these are people that

00:39:16--> 00:39:51

they themselves are honest, they themselves are looking for any small reason to leave this empire deed. So we use it and they run away from it and all this good for them and that's enough for them, to arrest them and to keep away from this empire heading nothing they mock them own selves and no one else for survival the Allahu anhu he kept on going you need to understand my brothers and sisters in Islam, that the deen of Allah, some people implemented and some people are not going to implement it properly. And if no one implemented properly then you be the one that implements it properly and don't point fingers on people are they the ones that turn you away from the entire

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

deal? This is what Selma what the other one was teaching. called wha boo boo buncha didn't Lima right, who else now? He said and I hated him for that which you

00:40:00--> 00:40:29

Did the bishop in Houston rip off the people? And so Pamela, we need to understand also from this step, the mistake that those in leadership position do has a much worse negative effect on the people far more than if a normal person was to do that mistake. The higher you go in your position, and the more respected you are among the people, the more you're supposed to watch out, then the one sin you do, it has a way, way worse negative effect on the people than if it was to be committed and done by any any normal person.

00:40:30--> 00:40:36

All from as time went by, this Bishop got sick, and eventually he died.

00:40:38--> 00:40:40

Fish Tamati laziness all earlier.

00:40:41--> 00:41:22

So the Christians and his followers, his lovers, they came together. They gathered in the church mourning his death, and they wanted to give him a proper burial on Salmeterol, the alarm and he said, For call to the home, in the Heather kernersville. So now he got up now he can speak. He said to them, You see this Bishop of yours. He didn't know but he was a corrupt evil bishop. He used to encourage you to give the donations and he used to rip it off for himself. He used to eat it all. They said to him, What makes you say that? He says, I can point you to where he stashed this golden silver. They said for the leather take us there. So silver Robbie Amano. fidella home, he took them

00:41:22--> 00:41:59

and they dug the ground, they dug the earth. And they pulled out seven bags of golden silver. And the people that donated recognized Hello, this is the necklace of my wife. This is my daughter's ring. This is why many people began to realize their love. For they understood what he said you so Pamela, you don't you also learn here, that even the teacher even the priest himself, the denier, the dunya could be a fitna to him. No one is safe from the fit, no one is safe from the fitness. Here we're learning that even this this person in high authority, that he fell victim to the fitness of this wall, on for soloqueue.

00:42:01--> 00:42:19

genre, they weren't going to give him a noble burial. So they grabbed them, they crucified Him, and they began to stone him as he's dead. Then they began to stone him this is their anger, unleashed and released at such a person. They stoned him and they left him you need to understand here as well something my brothers and sisters, and that is that

00:42:22--> 00:42:27

yonni we learn that people might think they can do a sin

00:42:29--> 00:42:48

and cover it from the people and not repent, and they will never be exposed. However, most of whom are to Allah expose this person after his death. Instead of being buried and given an honorable noble burial. Look at the humiliation that he received. Were yearning from the names of Allah subhanaw taala is

00:42:49--> 00:43:30

the one who covers the sins of mankind. You see, it's a mercy that allows or shell covers our sins. So problem, you commit a sin Omaha cover. That's no problem. But when you begin to take advantage of this mercy of a law and you begin to use it to your advantage, almost immediately you need to realize that one day you will be exposed. If not during your life, it could be at your death, if not during your death in your grave, if not in your grave and the Day of Judgment. A law of social will expose the one who takes advantage of civil law. When you do a sin, realize that understand you haven't been covered. Because this is a sign from Allah Zoysia He wants you to repent and to return

00:43:30--> 00:43:39

to Him and leave the sin altogether. or loss of Hannah who died on the Day of Judgment. He This is the scary part. He says Leah's Allah saw the finance team

00:43:40--> 00:44:04

will ask the truthful one about his honesty on the Day of Judgment. If the truthful is asked about his honesty, imagine the one who lied. How severe is the question going to be the the one who spoke honesty and truth? Allah who asked him, What did you speak? Why did you speak this truth? To imagine the one who lied then? What Yeah, and so Pamela what kind of punishment such a person will face on the day of judgment?

00:44:06--> 00:44:39

they stoned him, and this is how they lift him was a member of the Allahu anhu he says from Michelle will be Rosalyn Alhaji Xiao Lu McKenna, who almost immediately they appointed another Bishop after him. Someone's got to take the position. So they put someone and sell their loved one. Well, this time, he praised this Bishop, and he said, Jani Subhanallah family to offer let me know. I did not see anyone more righteous and more pious than this Bishop sendmail of the Allahu anhu. He described him and he said, he used to pray his five daily prayers.

00:44:40--> 00:44:59

And he didn't have a huge concern for this worldly life. He had an enormous concern for the hereafter. This was the newly appointed Bishop and he said he used to pray his five daily prayers. What did the Allahu anhu mean by that? He did not mean that he used the five pray five daily prayers like what we prayed, but you need to understand, so never be alone.

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

One who is narrating the story of the his Islam. So the person in Islam The one who prays his five daily prayers is considered pious and righteous. So once a member of the Allahu anhu said that the bishop used to pray is five daily prayers. In other words, he's comparing the righteousness of the bishop to the righteous Muslim that praises five daily prayers. Right? This is what he's meant by. He used to pray his five daily prayers on to hope Allah Mohammed who had him in Kabul, he said, and I loved him so much in such a manner that I never loved anyone like I loved him before. We need to understand also from this, why did Sandman say that? Why? Because people that are righteous people

00:45:42--> 00:46:14

that worship Allah are automatically loved by the creation of a law and that this is a natural effect of righteousness. Allah azza wa jal, he says in Allah Vina Amano, Mohammed Ali had, say, a shadow Mohamed would that those who believe in a law and do righteous good deeds, a law will place upon them an incredible love and attraction of love, so that people around them would love them almost automatically. This is a natural consequence of worship. And this is my son, Mel the law. No, he said, I loved him. Like I never loved anyone before.

00:46:16--> 00:46:37

called Welcome to Xamarin and had to have a lot to offer. He said, and I remained with him Xamarin a while a few years, until this Bishop as well, death was presented to him. Now he's on his deathbed. This is the second Bishop is met. And this Bishop is about to die. So some of the Allahu anhu he says to him, my D teacher.

00:46:39--> 00:46:43

I was with you. And I loved you like I have never loved anyone before.

00:46:45--> 00:46:48

And look at your state you're on your deathbed you're about to die.

00:46:49--> 00:46:57

Who do you advise me to go to after your death? disease, there's someone you advise that is as good as you I can go to and learn my religion from.

00:46:59--> 00:47:43

So the bishop he said to him a morning, he said a mighty son on law he I do not know of anyone today upon the religion that I am upon. Nakata, Allah can nurse Baba della otaku. He said Allah can nurse Allah can nurse here means that the righteous have died. The scholars and the people of knowledge of Christianity have died, what they do, and those that are still alive, they corrupted and they altered the message of the Bible. They changed that altogether. What on earth for America? And they left most of their religion, they abandon it. He said, Tim Elrod, Julian, Bill Mosley, who have fallen for who Allah couldn't rally, he felt happy except one man. And he lives in a lucid in Iraq.

00:47:44--> 00:47:49

If you find him go and follow Him, and stay with him, and just stay stuck, right team and learn from him.

00:47:50--> 00:48:18

On Fallon, no matter where he lied to the Sahih, Muslim solver, Obama when he says once the second Bishop died, he said almost immediately, I packed up and I carried myself until I reached a Muslim. Look at this journey he took this is a few 100 kilometers until he reached to Iraq. He said on I reached Iraq, and I headed straight to this Bishop, I asked about him, and he got to him. And he said to me awful. And he said to him, the bishop, my teacher,

00:48:20--> 00:48:56

I had a bishop just before you, and he advised me to come to you. And he said to me that you are upon the same religion, the pure authentic religion, just like he was upon, can I serve you? And can I pray with you? And can I learn from you for the bishop now in Iraq, he said, the document the yellow, no worries, reside with me and stay with me, for our country in the hope for Russia to hire me so heavy, he said, and I remained with him for a long time as well many years. And I found him to be very authentic and sincere. And he was upon the same teachings as my previous friend.

00:48:58--> 00:48:59

For the Melbourne and men

00:49:00--> 00:49:02

for the Mahabharata who have a lot to

00:49:04--> 00:49:06

say he says, He is when by

00:49:08--> 00:49:20

the same thing has happened. He's on his deathbed. Now, this Bishop is on his deathbed. He's dying. Senator Obama one wishes the mayor for them in the Sudan and also be illegal. I'm I don't even know.

00:49:21--> 00:49:27

How about I come in alojamento for 11 to CB, he says my D teacher,

00:49:28--> 00:49:38

my previous friend, he advised me to come to you. And look you're dying. Who do you advise me to go after your death? Who should I go and learn my religion from?

00:49:39--> 00:49:42

So this Bishop in Iraq, he says to him,

00:49:43--> 00:49:55

Allah He my son, I don't know anyone upon the authentic teachings that I'm upon. Except a man be no soy bean. No soy bean is another city. Opposite.

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

No soy bean is right opposite on the other end of alone.

00:50:00--> 00:50:42

See on the other end of a movie. So he goes team if you find him, go and follow up with him and stay with him. So so there will be a long one who he says the bishop in Iraq died. And I picked up myself packed up, and I went straight to the other bishop. And I went to him. And I said to him, my story, and please can I sit with you and learn and serve you and pray with you. And he accept that, and so badly Allah one who stayed with him for a very long time, he need to understand something my brothers and sisters is that salmela the Allahu anhu is teaching us patience and perseverance. That salon would never jump from chef to share, and jump from one place to one place, he would stay with

00:50:42--> 00:51:25

him until he died. Once he died, he looked for someone else. This is patience and perseverance. And this is also Yanni sincerity and honesty with Allah subhanho wa Taala. No matter how boring this person is, no matter how exciting and how encouraging his other hosts, this is the shirt that I'm with, that I was advised to sit with. And he sat with him until this person dies. So he sat with this Bishop from Missouri beam, until also the same thing happens to the Bishop of Missouri beam, and he is on his deathbed as well. And so select robiola one when it comes to him. And he says to him, Jani a bishop advised me to go to a bishop who advised me to go to another and that Bishop

00:51:25--> 00:51:27

advised me to go to you and you're dying now.

00:51:28--> 00:51:31

Is there anyone that you advise me to go after your death?

00:51:32--> 00:51:40

So he says to him, this Bishop of nasai beam, he says to him, we're lucky. Now Alamo hadn't Bucky Allah Marina

00:51:41--> 00:52:26

Tatia Who? Ilayaraja Maria. He says, We're lucky my son. I don't know of anyone that is holding on to the authentic teachings of our religion, other than one man. And this man is in a Maria. Maria is modern day Turkey. He says go if you find him go and stay with him. So there will be a long one when he says, follow my motto Who the heck to the Sahaba Maria, when he died and they buried him. I got up and I traveled all the way until I reached out Maria and I got to that Bishop there and I requested from him if I may serve Him and learn from him and pray with him, and he accepted the request and said Mel the Allahu anhu. He said for tomorrow, Julian Allah Diaz Javi.

00:52:27--> 00:53:08

Emery him called work the sub to help Deccan le Baccarat. tawakoni met Shannon Roby along when we said so I followed and I got to her Maria and I got to the teacher, that Bishop and I found him to be very honest and sincere, and he was upon the authentic teachings. There's like my friends in the past world. But then this time in our Maria Celebi, Allahu anhu, had time to work. So he went, and he began to work, and he became a farmer. And he owned, he began, like a small farm, he owns some cows, he owns some sheep, and he began to work. And this is teaching you that you and your person is supposed to work when he found himself limited on resources in continuing in search of the truth.

00:53:08--> 00:53:16

The only reason he begins to work is so that he can source is his purpose in life. And this is why he begins to work.

00:53:17--> 00:53:28

He he works, he remains with this Bishop, he says, robiola 104 manager levy amarula. He follow muhabura Kaltura. Who, then the same thing happened to him.

00:53:29--> 00:54:15

This is a span of more than 20 years. And he said there will be a law going from one bishop to another, this Bishop now final one in our Moria he's about to die. And he comes to Him. And He said to him, Annie, my D teacher, and they are about to die. Who do you advise me to go after your death? He said to him, Allah he listen. Yes. And Ben, oh, my son. There is absolutely no one on Earth. That is upon the authentic teachings we are on that's it. The last one has is about divine. But avant luck as a man who maybe you have come very close to a time in where a prophet from among the Arab lands is going to emerge. We're coming close to this time. So he says to him, and this prophet is

00:54:15--> 00:54:25

going to be is going to emerge and he's going to be upon the authentic teachings of Ibrahim Ali he said, the Christians they know this. And he said to him

00:54:26--> 00:54:43

look at the word he said of a lacquer of unlocker comes from the word of wisdom of village the shadow yearning it's like a time of comfort and tranquility has arrived finally to humanity. And he says to him, Gani Yahushua will be out of the lobby mohajir on Isla

00:54:45--> 00:54:59

is describing dismantle him. He says theme is going to emerge and he's going to be upon the teachings of Ibrahim and he's going to migrate from the lands of the Arabs until he reaches a land that is in between countries.

00:55:00--> 00:55:24

This is the land of Medina. It's full of palm trees on the outside. And it is going to be been a holiday in meaning it's going to be between lava fields, you know volcanic rock and Medina outside of it is for volcanic rock. That's how it's going to be the entrance to Almudena, you're going to see huge plumes of volcanic rock, and you're going to see huge fields of palm trees growing around, he said,

00:55:25--> 00:56:08

and he's got three signs that you cannot miss your guru, the Guru sadhaka. He accepts and he takes the gift and he does not acceptable sort of a donation isn't accepted. What they get the fee hatanaka and right between his shoulder blades is the seal of prophethood the seal of prophethood it's like the pigeons egg and it has some hairs on it. And it comes out on the skin of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam right in between his shoulder blades. He said for any stop until Huckabee till can be ready for fun. I don't know and I'm about to die. If you can reach to the land of the Arabs. They can get there as soon as you can. Don't wait for anyone. And don't listen to anyone

00:56:08--> 00:56:09

after that.

00:56:10--> 00:56:57

Call for Magneto. He died and he was buried announced a level the Allahu anhu is stuck in a Moriah in Turkey. He's planning now How is he going to get to the Arab lands on for my gift Sofia, Maria Masha Amman uncouth these kind of words it means I remained in our Maria for as long as the Lord wanted me to remain there.

karate he said, Please, I offer you a payment Can I can I give you might cows and my sheep take it all, but just carry me with you to the land of the Arabs. And he's willing to sacrifice his business and his money in search of the truth and in quest of this truth and guidance.

00:57:19--> 00:57:35

And that sounds like a good deal. No problems. We didn't have an issue with that. Or for hamadani. They put him on the caravan and they began a journey to go from Turkey until they're going to reach out of the land of the Arabs. This year. This is almost a space of 2000 kilometers.

00:57:36--> 00:57:56

For him alone, he had the either Cody movie where they'll call for the money for their own either mentally hood. He said they carried me away everything was going good up until we reached where the whole. This is a location that is away from Medina about 800 kilometers away from Medina still a long way to Medina.

00:57:57--> 00:58:41

He said and they stopped by where the poorer and this was a land most of it were Jews. And they oppressed me for the morning. And they deceive me and they tricked me. They grabbed me. And they they said that I'm asleep. They said I'm asleep. They assumed I'm asleep. And they went and they sold me to a Jewish man. So Pamela Sendero, the Allahu anhu Salah who was a man from the beginning he was he his father was a wealthy man. His father was an empire. His father owned lands and he owned farms and fields. His father owned a construction company. The son was loved by his father. He was loved by his family, by his relatives by his brothers and sisters. He was a young boy enjoying

00:58:41--> 00:59:20

his life. Look at now from where he is where he's become. He's become a slave in the hands of the most the worst of the creation of a lot the Jews. Can you can you imagine what your loved one is going through, and not one day. In his life. He looks back and he regrets what he does. And the day he sold as a slave. Little does he know that this was the best day in his life. Because the day he was sold as a slave is going to be the beginning of his journey. Ted Madeira, eventually meeting going solo muscle Allahu alayhi wa sallam at the devil look at the negative side in your life. The negative is always there. But look through this tunnel, and you will find the light at the end of

00:59:20--> 00:59:38

it. sandela one who doesn't give up? He gets there and is sold as a slave. You need to understand what can you do. And even though he's not a slave, they carry him and they claim he's a sleeve. If he tried to fight that or argue with them, they would have killed him. Or so panela look at the plan have a lot of social

00:59:39--> 01:00:00

Yani so much wisdom in a lot of making him a slave. If he was still in America, if he was still in Turkey. Then it was at this time that the Romans they won over Damascus. And it was at this time that many many people were massacred and murdered that at that time, and if some man was still there, he will surely being killed by the

01:00:00--> 01:00:12

woman's Amazonian takes him out of their souls him as a slave, he sold as a slave to the Jews. And he saved from all of this Subhanallah the planet of a little spider that always needs to be trusted by the believer.

01:00:13--> 01:00:56

They're winning, they're winning, they sold me. They oppressed me, you know, yani, the forms of the forms of slavery among the Arabs were plenty. Well, this is why when Islam came, it did not abolish slavery altogether. Rather, they abolished the oppressive forms of slavery. Like before, in the past, before Islam, I could grab someone, and I say, I claim I own him and I sell him. This is an oppressive form of slavery, Islam came to stop that form. For example, if you owed me money, and you didn't pay it on time, I can take you as a slave and sell you. This is an oppressive form of slavery, Islam came, and he put a stop to all these forms of slavery, and left only one form of

01:00:56--> 01:01:35

slavery. And that is the slavery that is the captive of the war. That's it. That's a and then even with that Islam came and taught us how to deal with such people. Only there's a story that they mentioned about slavery so you can understand its oppressive forms. And during the Arabs time, there's a companion by the name of Norman Hobley, Allahu anhu. And then our men, he was a character, he was a joke, it was a funny person at the time of most eyes on them. One day, a worker will be alone one who is sent out Bible salasar salaam on a journey. A worker goes and Norman is with him. And there's a couple of Sahaba also on the trip. And so what happens is that a worker of the Allahu

01:01:35--> 01:02:15

anhu, he appoints one of the Sahaba as Yani in charge of the food. And this is supposed to give every companion on the trip some food, some dates, and as the days go by, and there's enough calculation estimate, so that it Yani, it's enough for them until they return. So no man, no one who he got hungry on the trip. And he went to this companion, he said to him, give me He said, The moment he gives you one, and I, if I open the bags, and I feed everyone, what are our tomorrow? What are we gonna eat? So he says, Sorry, a worker appoints me here and I give you exactly a portion of the day and you're hungry. Wait till tomorrow. No, no, no, he's not settling for that. He says, Give

01:02:15--> 01:02:39

me the food. Give me give me anything and give him he said, Alright, fine. No worries. So tomorrow, the alojado he walks because they've rested at a place and he finds a group and a tribe of Arabs. And he walks in. And he says to them, you have some food to feed me. They said to him, what do you have some money to pay us? He says to them, I didn't have money. But I have a sleeve I can give you.

01:02:41--> 01:02:56

They sit him down. He holds a good deal. He says, look, but let me tell you something about this slave. He's good. He's energetic, he's strong. He's powerful. But there's only one problem with him. And that is that every time we want to sell him as a slave, he claims he's a free man.

01:02:57--> 01:03:25

For they said our whole story is that's easy. We'll deal with it. So he sits with him and he eats until he's full. And he comes back and he takes these Arabs with him. And he said to me, that's the man. That's the slave take him. So they come to you and they grab him. And he says the word. He says that they said that they are a payment. You're the slave, you're our payment. He says what slave I'm a free, you know, it's easy. We know that we know you're gonna say that. So they pay him and they grab him and they take him with him. And they begin to walk

01:03:28--> 01:03:32

out and he came back and he's seen the situation with the man appointed on the food.

01:03:33--> 01:04:12

not available, the Aloha know, he says to him, all of this is the story. This is what happened. And I was hungry. I requested food. He said no. And I did this with him for a little bit. He goes to the tribe of Arabs, and he explains to them the story and they released this companion and he's back. The point is that the Arabs used to have this the this this kind of slavery was very oppressive among them. Anyone was a slave sold, anyone purchased anyone claimed ownership over anyone. And he slammed came in it stopped and abolished all that except one form of slavery. We said that is the slave of the wall for salmela. We are not one who is going through this right now. Only what choice

01:04:12--> 01:04:50

does he have little choice does he have if he speaks a word, they kill him right then and there. So he remains as it is. And he still hasn't lost his focus and he hasn't lost his purpose in life. And that is that he still needs to reach also loss of asylum. Now he's loaded he's got the information. He knows what he's looking for. He's knows what he's looking for the land of the Arabs, volcanic rock, palm trees, and a man with three descriptions for smell of the Allahu anhu he says. So Pamela, he says for any theory to understand the smell of the Aloha know, when he was shackled by his dad, doesn't matter. He allowed himself to be shackled. But he never allowed his intellect that his free

01:04:50--> 01:04:59

wolf to be shackled. And so he kept he pursued and he kept on going. He said I was in where the poorer with this June

01:05:00--> 01:05:09

And, and my monster his cousin from El Medina came to visit him one day. After a few years he came to visit him. He visited him

01:05:10--> 01:05:51

and he said to him, Danny, the monster, he said to his cousin, I have a slave for sale. You wanna you want him you want to take him? This is his relative and you will one thing he says the mama show me this sleeve that you have. He showed him sunburn was unbearably a long one when he was a strong man. And he will no realize later on that he came with the idea of digging the trench and he's the one that went down and dug it. On the day of of a hammock. He was a strong brave man. So he says All right, no worries, I'll take him and the cousin of the master of Sandman, lovely Allahu anhu. He carried Sylvain, put him on his caravan. And now where is he heading? He's heading towards as Medina

01:05:51--> 01:06:38

800 kilometres A few days later sendmail only Allah Juan will be begins to shake. From happiness overwhelmed with excitement and happiness. He sees exactly what his Jani his Bishop had described to him. He saw the land and he saw the volcanic rock and he saw the palm trees. And from inside, he has a burning sensation of happiness and excitement. And they enter right into this land. And we're going to stop here. We have nilla heat island next Wednesday. We continue from then on. What was his role with his new master? How did his master treat him and by the way, the moment Selden enters and Medina, is the moment and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reaches the age of 40 in Makkah, and he's

01:06:38--> 01:06:42

appointed the final messenger of Allah. So how long does he need to meet

01:06:44--> 01:07:26

another 30 knees before him comes to Allah to come still Medina, for these 30 knees is going to live as a slave shuffle. So Pamela, it is an incredible story. When he meets finally places he has handled masala blossom a long while ago solemn. It is described in such epic detail, that below the level, we're just going to sort of go around the entire duration, word by word, and explain to you the emotion of Sinbad lovely Allahu anhu. When he finally sees that which he has longed for all of the Allahu Akbar, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to allow us to benefit from that which we heard, and we asked him subhanho wa Taala to make us people before people of the sunova saw the loss of the

01:07:26--> 01:07:34

law while he was in the holy vertical called the Dalai Lama novella kalenna Vienna Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi ajmeri
