Salam al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa sallahu wa sallim wa barik ala Nabina Muhammad in a while early he also IBH main well bad.

00:00:16--> 00:00:22

So today inshallah we'll continue from where we left off last week with the CEO of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam.

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

I wanted to talk about a

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

with some lineage issues regarding that period.

00:00:32--> 00:01:17

Many of us study the prophets of Allah asylums life and we never actually understand kind of how things work from a heritage perspective. And the slide that I have for you. It shows how Shem or Sam the son of Noah Hawley has had a number of of sons and from those times we have Ibrahim at ease to them and you can see for Ibrahim Ali salaam, we have both Isaac, from him comes Jacob, and Esau in front of the company Israelites and the Edomites and from Ishmael are smuggled east and we have the Arabs or the Arabs are called the Adnani Arabs or the addenda knights. And then on the other side of the left side of the slide, you see jog tan, or better known from in Arabic guys plotline. catheline

00:01:17--> 00:01:18

is one of the sons of Eber

00:01:19--> 00:01:45

who is one of the Ibrahim Ali slams ancestor ancestors and this is what we commonly this is what's commonly believed in terms to be to be the way the genealogy actually works. And from Python all the 13 very, very good principles. So the idea knights and Jacque tonight's are catani they have the majority of historians scholars believe that they the

00:01:48--> 00:02:03

the genealogy unites somewhere up there, just under a Shem or Sam maybe no has no Holly's. Another way of this being understood or another genealogy opinion that I think is I thought probably a bit more

00:02:04--> 00:02:07

probable is that Ibrahim Ali is

00:02:10--> 00:02:17

of course, is one of the sons of one of the grand sons of new Jalisco and the Japanese don't actually.

00:02:18--> 00:03:03

Japanese come from Eber, who is actually who'd in the Quran, most likely that Ibrahim Ali Salam is not one of the hood descendants that Ibrahim Ali Salam is one of no Hadees descendants, but not through, not through hood Alehissalaam which make which is what the majority of Arabs believe at least, the majority of Arabs believe that the agonized sons of Ishmael sons, Brahim, the descent from new Holly salaam, and catani the job tonight they're the sons of hewed and they are also descendants of Nora. But the money they are the jock, the knights and other knights only unite genealogy geologically new, or a sham or some sort of naughty stuff like that.

00:03:05--> 00:03:47

I just thought it's important to kind of denote then why? Because it just shows you regardless of which opinion you accept, or you think is more proper, that the jock tonight's or the catani. And that denies the sons of dismay that they are actually geologically very different. They come from different lines, and they don't really unite until a new holiday sandwich as far as we can go. Which means that there's a lot of cultural and racial differences between them. And it explains why the Arabian Peninsula was filled with a lot of animosity and a lot of war. And I thought that was worth worth explaining. Before we were still in the period, prior to his, his birth it he's still

00:03:48--> 00:04:26

he's still we're talking about what the world looked like before he was born. And I spent a few articles in the last couple of weeks talking about a lot of the social, financial, political, personal habits and traditions that existed in the world and Arabia, specifically, just as a prophet. So I see them was being it was about to be born, just to understand the context that he was that he was going to grow up within it. It has taught me so important, and it's an important thing. And one of the stories I wanted to share with you before we kind of came closer to the moment of his birth. A few things that happened in Arabia or before his birth out he sought some wisdom is

00:04:26--> 00:04:57

actually a story of a man that we would later what we actually know is one of the Sahaba man called cinnamon fairly seen the Allahu Anhu said Amanda Persian and cinnamon story is such an important one and I never actually told his story in full previously in in the sea of halacha that I've had done in the last couple of years. But I decided this year would be a good idea to maybe share that story with you due to the importance of of it, and it's the best place to tell it because because his story not only hasn't has many

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

a lot of benefits in it.

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


00:05:03--> 00:05:15

religiously, but also, it gives us a lot of context what what the world looks like at that time. So Sandman rhodiola, Han, who he was born in Isfahan, it was a part of Elan today. And he

00:05:18--> 00:05:27

he was he was born, he was a son of one of the leaders, religious leaders, and maybe we'll see you having a juice, which is a which is a part which is a type of

00:05:28--> 00:06:07

which is a religion that exists predominantly in the Alliance, they still exist, they still exist today, under different names. And so in the Allahu anhu, he was born to a father who was one of the clergyman, one of the high scholars of that faith, and a part of their faith was to keep was to keep a fire kindled. And the person who took care of that fire was was regarded was held in the highest regards. And that was what his father did. And he wanted him to learn, you want us to demand really low on how to learn. So he would take, you know, he would follow in his footsteps, but still model the law and who, and the interesting part of the story and the importance of this story. He was he

00:06:07--> 00:06:47

was someone who just very curious about the law, and who was someone who just couldn't, if things didn't make sense, he just couldn't let it go. He wasn't someone who were going to accept any any narrative or any line of thought that wasn't sensible to him, of the law and home. And this is important virtue that he carried the law and who is what's going to make this story so interesting and so beautiful, is that he just couldn't, he just couldn't accept whatever he was being told by his father that didn't make sense to him. And this is the problem that we have with with our youth. Today, youth today. We all we all want our children to follow in our footsteps. We all want our sons

00:06:47--> 00:07:23

and daughters to be good Muslims, if you're a good Muslim, you want them to be a good Muslim and to love Islam. So this sounds this should sound very, very familiar to you, the Father of Salman wants his son to do exactly what you want your son to do. With, of course, clear, obvious differences. And man's father is trying to teach him something that is incorrect, and you're trying to teach him Islam. But the same problem and the same issue still is still there. We want our children to follow in the footsteps of the faiths that we carry. Yet we struggle with that. And studying cinema, the story tells us why he said I couldn't make sense of what he was being told by his dad. It just

00:07:23--> 00:07:52

didn't make sense to him when he when he asked us all his questions. The answers his father was offering the answers that his father his father was offered were offering was offering we're not, we're not compatible with his young mind. It didn't make sense from a culture perspective didn't make sense for him from a scientifical perspective didn't make sense from a historical one, either. Your traditional answers that have been passed down generation after generation, and set them out with his critical mind. And with his curiosity and his and his genuine

00:07:54--> 00:08:27

willingness of seeking the truth, when he was giving an answer, given an answer, that was not logical. That didn't make any sense. He just couldn't do it. He was not satisfied with it, which made him which pushed him away from the faith. Now, again, Does this sound familiar to you? When you're having when, when your children ask you questions about Islam and about faith and about theology and about why we do this? And why we don't do that you don't have a good answer, you're actually pushing them away, you're better off not answering at all, or educating yourself so that you can answer in a way that fulfills their curiosity. You see the beauty of youth and this is the

00:08:27--> 00:09:08

best. This is why it's so important that we spend all the time that we have and all the energy and effort and money that we have in supporting them in an age ating their journeys because once a young person is convinced with something, anything at all, they commit to it, way more than than the Middle East, people do. Somewhat like me with children and, and a career, my commitment, no matter how strong it is, well, we'll never reach the commitment of someone in their teams. It's just the passion that you've had this. Their passion is just unstoppable. And Islam was built on it. And you'll see that when we go through the COO of the Prophet more, you'll see all the names most of the

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

names that I'll share with you. The early names that stood by him on the Assad's was number of people in their early teens, they're very young. But they were convinced by this idea, this idea that he provided it his thought was that it was so compelling that the that they saw the light in it, they saw the logic in it, that they stood by it and Salon of the law and who he would have done the same if his father offered him answers that made sense. No, obviously he's his father couldn't because the faith that he's following is incorrect. So there were no good answers for him to offer. But I'm wondering why is it that we can't offer our children answers that makes make sense to them

00:09:40--> 00:10:00

that help them build that passion? When we do have the health in our hands when we do carry with within our within our hands, the truth in the light of Allah subhanaw taala because when you can't offer an answer that makes sense to someone who's logical, like like the like youth, then one of two things is correct. Either what you stand for is false, or you don't understand

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

properly. And I hope that we still side. But I hope we still believe that we just don't understand this properly. And

00:10:08--> 00:10:37

in contrary to the to the other option of this younger Biller, they just have a very scary thought. And I think it's, that's why he thinks cinnamon store is so important to share. Because, you know, there are many, many examples of of that today, many, many, many of our brothers and sisters here today with us have children who have gone there, chosen the to go astray or to walk a different down a different line. And probably the reason is similar to the reason of Sandman.

00:10:39--> 00:11:15

And I'm not saying it's your fault, if that's what happened. But as a community we have, we have failed to offer a narrative to our youth that is sensible, that is logical that they can feel proud of and they they enter they can put their put their put their lives behind and get excited about. And if either we don't understand our dean or Dean isn't, isn't compatible with with the 21st century, and I'm gonna say that we don't understand it properly. And we could if we wanted to, and then we could have changed, we can change things. And so it's no matter the law I knew I was being prepared to for that. And he he wasn't convinced. So he started to look for the truth elsewhere. And

00:11:15--> 00:11:40

there were still at that time, as I told you, there was still a few places on within the region that had more hiding, they had people who believed in the law from from the Jewish faith and from the Christian faith. And they were slowly the numbers of these places, and the quality of the people was declining quite quickly. So it's the law and ran into a into a number of priests in a small church hidden somewhere.

00:11:41--> 00:12:15

Within his, within his city, he heard I think they were saying he got interested, he walked in, he asked, and they explained and he learned and he and he found that the answers they were offering about life, and death and universe and creation to be much more convincing, convincing than the answers he was offered by his father and, and they were telling me what history and what the prophets and, and about Allah Subhanallah, and the books and the Scripture and the text, and he just bought into this. And in one day, he expressed to his father that he wanted to change his faith, we want to go with these people, and these monks or these priests and learn from them. So we got very

00:12:15--> 00:12:17

upset, and he got very angry, and he and he

00:12:18--> 00:12:41

types a man to the bed as the narration goes inside his room and wouldn't allow him out. So early on, who had a friend of his told the priest that once you're ready to go, and leave, it's fine to leave Iran, let me know, and I will, you know, break loose, and I'll join you. And when they did, and at the night that they were leaving, he broke loose. And he left his his home.

00:12:42--> 00:13:16

And it's a very Yeah, I can never, I always find it difficult to understand how somebody did it, how he would say, man, his father, not only was prestigious his father was was also very wealthy. And as a man who was someone who was, was seen as, as an ex prodigy, as someone who was going to be a leader, he had a lot of wealth or social status, and he would leave it all for life, have you gonna see what the life is gonna live, his life is going to look like look like and by the way, he's going to leave as far as that day. And he would never actually return to see his parents again, like his parents would pass away. And you'll come back, but but it'll be many, many, many, many decades

00:13:16--> 00:13:45

later, before he'll ever come back to that place. It was a very difficult moment for him, I can't imagine what it must be like, what it must have been like for him to make that decision. But, but you can. But this only proves my point, that when youth believe in something, if you can convince them of something, they'll they'll know, they're, they're limitless, what they what they will do and what they can do for for the sake of serving of serving their beliefs is

00:13:46--> 00:14:10

unlimited, and they're unstoppable. And he's going to leave everything and go on and go on a 40 year journey, basically, and seek of the truth. Just because you he was convinced by something was evidence was more compelling. And that that's, that's used for you, the logic is just stronger for them, and then the compassion and their passion will follow and their emotions will follow their logic.

00:14:11--> 00:14:15

So he would break loose and he would leave. And he would go with those feasts to live with.

00:14:16--> 00:14:44

To live with another one in somewhere in Damascus. And the first person he would live with there. The amount of piety and amount of knowledge and you spend a few years with him serving him learning from him, you know, the deen until that person came to the point where he was he was ill is going to pass away. So he asked him who should I go to today after you to learn from so he would tell him I the only person I can think for you think of is someone maybe somewhere in Iraq and

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

you would give him an address. So when he passed away, settlement of the law and would go, you're gonna see it's gonna move between three or four countries. You're gonna you're gonna exist basically in three continents or two

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

Half continent. So he's gonna move from, from from Asia to Europe down to,

00:15:05--> 00:15:36

from the Middle East down to Arabia, in seek of truth and seek of an answer that that will fulfill his curiosity. And I think that quality is something that's missing, a lot of us are accepting in our lives answers that don't make full sense, because we're too lazy to actually seek it. And by the way, by the way, the only thing you need right now to seek an answer is just your functioning thumb and wi fi cinemavilla, who I knew I was going to, is going to travel 1000s of miles for 40 years, just to

00:15:37--> 00:15:55

find that answer that that, that will grant him tranquility and inner peace or the Allahu Anhu. Because it's very important, this is a very compelling story. So he would go to this man and a lot to learn from him. And this priest wasn't as pious as the one before this person actually very corrupt. He would take wealth, you know, to take donations from people and then hide it

00:15:57--> 00:16:13

in his home, and he was basically he was embezzling money. And he, and it's on my side, but he didn't say anything about it during the time because until this man came to pass away, he asked him Where do I go? Who's told please until eight so he so he told him to go to a place in Turkey.

00:16:14--> 00:16:32

But when he died as people came to bury him, send him out of the love, I know actually stood and told them that this man here, you know, before you turn him into a saint, this is what he should do one, two, and three, and he sold them all the money, so they know they, the people knew the truth. And to be honest, this part of the story is probably

00:16:33--> 00:16:47

it's the part of the story that made me most interested in it. You see, it's an amount of the law on who encountered religious corruption on his journey it's like Allah subhanaw taala refused for this journey to be

00:16:49--> 00:17:08

to be to be anything but the most difficult one of all you had to this journey was just so hard. Not only do you have to leave the prestige of his father leave the faith that he was raised upon all the all the potential that he had all the wealth and money he had to leave all of that but now that he's going to corrupt a religious corrupt he's going to Lyon encountered religious corruption.

00:17:09--> 00:17:42

This could have been used by some I want you to imagine this cinema could have immediately after you know, encountering this, say this is this is okay. This is what religion actually is. This is how the religious people are. These are how the liturgy minutes are. I don't want this. I don't want any religion anymore. I am come from now on I am faithless, I am atheist. I've already I've seen what the religious people do. I've seen but the people act like they know God and act like they love God. And he could have used this as an excuse to never ever pursue religion ever again. And to be honest, his his argument would have been really, really strong. And, and that's for one if I would ever be

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

unconscious to the man after after this example. And he would tell me, Well, I, I spent time with a man of such low status, there's so and so's status. And he did one, two, and three, and I witnessed this, I wouldn't have a very good comeback for him. I really wouldn't. Religious corruption is is one of the worst things you can ever get involved in. And it just, it's not just about money. It's not about taking people's donations and spending it on something else. How long any form of religious corruption. Yeah, and he taking reading texts and explaining it differently than than how it was supposed to be explained, trying to people trying to get people to buy into your agenda,

00:18:18--> 00:19:02

instead of to what is Hawk what is the right righteousness that scripture or the law is trying to trying to lead people to. All that is forms of release corruption, and religious corruption is the number one reason that people leave Islam. You don't want to talk about it. The effect of media the effect of war, and all that does not add up relate to a small fraction of what religious corruption has done. Due to faith throughout the throughout the centuries until this day, all it takes is one corrupt Island. One person who speaks in the name of Allah subhanho wa taala, who will sell his soul to the devil, or is willing to stand by an oppressor was willing to lie just to get people to do

00:19:02--> 00:19:22

what he thinks is better at best. Instead of instead of explaining things objectively, all it takes is one person for a full generation to completely give up on Islam and give up on faith. And so no matter the low, no hide the perfect, or the perfect excuse for this. And it was like a test from Allah subhanaw taala for celiac disease. So it's really are you really, really

00:19:23--> 00:19:29

serious about seeking truth Salman and for us as an example. This story is for you and I.

00:19:30--> 00:19:54

How serious are we about seeking the truth? And if you encountered something like that, what would you do? And I think he's just really a point in the story really worthy of contemplation and reflection. He would move after that to Turkey to another person. It's like, he's just moving. It's as if sentiment is encountering the last few more head priests within the world before the prophet or something like that. It was better than

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

the last few people who exist. Unfortunately, one of them is corrupted.

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

used to cry was tells you, you know the quality of religion at the time when things weren't going very well. So it goes to this manager and he spends a few years serving Him and learning from him and man is going to pass away and so we asked him who do I go to now? So he tells him well, I don't know anyone on Earth left who who was

00:20:18--> 00:20:34

a little bit higher than who I am and I had no idea he I don't know anyone who's still following what I what we are following here. I'll call it Yeah, you know, happy then it was right. What do I do? Where do I go for Carla? Luckily, our mother Allatoona, vegan Yahoo. Raju, Alden Boehner, her rotini

00:20:35--> 00:20:41

Jakob Lottie yet when I talk about oh sadhaka Bae inequity fi 10 will know how to maneuver.

00:20:43--> 00:20:49

So he tells him he this man before he dies, give somebody an extremely important piece of information that would basically

00:20:50--> 00:20:56

dictate the next, the rest of the man or the woman whose life he tells him.

00:20:58--> 00:21:20

I don't know anyone left on Earth, who still believes him and all theism. So I don't know where to send you. But the time has come close. Or the time is soon. When a the last messenger is going to be sent by Allah subhanaw taala, the last prophet the last prophecy is coming and is going to is going to exist in a in a city.

00:21:21--> 00:21:32

Fianna Han has a lot of palm trees being a hardware chain between two large pieces of land or a volcanic rock, meaning when you look at the

00:21:33--> 00:21:55

the city that he's going to be in, it's gonna be filled with palm trees, and on both sides is going to be volcanic rock, and then somewhere in the middle is going to be the city, he will accept a gift and he will refuse charity in between his his shoulder blades is something I caught him when the blue or the seal of prophecy. Is this a small more? These are the signs that this man knew about the prophet who was going to be sent

00:21:56--> 00:22:29

very soon, which is of course the prophets of Allah, who is actually the Muhammad Ali he started to sell man, you know, didn't had no idea where was he going to look, Earth is huge. The palm trees are all over the place. But his understanding was and he was correct. Understand this, that the land that had palm trees in it was Arabia. And he was not our Arab and he didn't, you know, its understanding of the Arab language, Arabic language was pretty good because he came from a prestigious family and beyond. So he's taught a few languages. So he actually spoke more than one language of the law and was understood Arabic. And he decided, okay, if Arabia has all the palm

00:22:29--> 00:22:40

trees, maybe I can go and start looking. So he would work for a few years make some money yet some cattle had some livestock, and he would go to the to Damascus, where

00:22:41--> 00:23:07

where the Arabs would bring their goods to sell. And they would go back on their caravans to the south. And his goal was to ask someone if they would take him down to the south to a city that had a lot of palm trees. That was that was the only thing you could think about think of so he did. And he found a an Arabic caravan and he to offer them the cattle and livestock that he had here as a as a fee for them to take him safely to a city that they thought had the most palm trees.

00:23:09--> 00:23:51

So being any Arabs at the time, they they took the happily took the livestock and the cattle and the fee. And they also took cinnamon as a slave as well. They enslaved under the Law No. And so the the ethical dilemma that the the Arab the area was going through, so is that a man now was being shipped downwards, southward. To the south, he has nothing he is now a slave knees. And again, I put myself in a man's shoes I try to imagine was the man I'm thinking to himself about God. He's lost his son, he's loved his family, and everything is own because he's looking for God. And then he encounters religious corruption on his way to looking for God. And now as he's trying to do the right thing,

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

he's being enslaved, and he's being stripped from everything he owns. You think at some point, so that that was enough was enough. If there is a God, well, he's not very kind, or he's not someone that I want to serve anymore. But again, said moderately low. I know the type of person he is, and his understanding of the faith or his understanding of religion that he gained from the people that he that he spent time with, was of a different nature. So it didn't matter. The liner was not objecting, and it was not upset but it wasn't, of course, he felt sad, of course, he was unhappy being enslaved, but he but he didn't use this as fuel to leave religion altogether. And see the

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

mercy of Allah subhanaw taala and he would end up being sold in one of the

00:24:32--> 00:25:00

markets are slaves to a man who is actually from yesterday. It's actually from Medina, and he will be taken by this man as a slave to work in the fields. But as a matter of the Lohan has been taken to this person's farm he sees in Medina from yesterday from a long from faraway, what does he see? He sees a lot of palm trees and he sees how to attain. He sees two areas of volcanic rock on both sides of the city and suddenly becomes extremely excited he starts to ask

00:25:00--> 00:25:30

Questions and Questions, because it seems like this is the exact place that the person that the priest had explained to him about, or told them about SubhanAllah. So somebody who I knew would end up with, he would spend many years there, by the way, until there's a man who was older than the prophets. I said anybody a couple of decades, and cinema is live with live after the Prophet. So I sent him for a few decades as well cinema and would live into his into his 100 100th year, he doesn't Tori and he lived over over over 100 years. And we law I know,

00:25:31--> 00:25:34

he would work there, in this in this man's

00:25:36--> 00:25:42

orchards, and the palm trees for many years until he would hear a rumor he would hear too.

00:25:43--> 00:26:13

As he was on the on the palm tree working, he would hear his master and another guy talking about this, this man who was claiming prophecy somewhere in Mecca and a different city, and they would talk about, they were talking about it. So sometimes on the train, he's working, and then he pauses for a moment to hear and he hears them say there's a man who was just from from this in this family, who was saying that he's the messenger Janya, the final messenger of Allah subhanaw taala. And said man would fall from the tree

00:26:14--> 00:26:49

and nine wood fees for a moment when he heard this. And I can only imagine the shiver going up his spine after maybe 35 years of, of enduring unimaginable difficulties, trying to seek the truth. When he finally heard that there was a prophet doesn't matter. Ilana fell from the tree he was scorned by by by his mastering the other person, but he didn't care. He had so many questions about his profits, and they got so upset with him because he was asking questions that they jailed him for for a number of days, would be another 10 years before the prophets of Allah. He's like Mr. Lim came to Medina. However, for settlement, it didn't make a difference. Because he's just waiting. He was he

00:26:49--> 00:26:50

was picking up all the

00:26:52--> 00:27:04

all the news of the prophets, like Selim, when he's done was arriving day and he was asking all the questions, and he'd already believed in the Prophet was almost before he before he arrived. And then finally, the prophet Ali's awesome came to Medina.

00:27:07--> 00:27:08

Instead of man would

00:27:10--> 00:27:14

would use the last few pieces of information that he had to

00:27:15--> 00:27:21

to confirm. After the Prophet audience arrived, Sinbad would go figure out where he was sitting in the

00:27:22--> 00:27:41

warehouse, how it was around him. So he would work each day and take some of the dates that he would make. And he would, it would go on, he would take it and put it in front of the profit sustainable. So how do I say this is some charity, and he would walk away and he was Tengai to tree and he would spy on the profit on his daughters to them and they'll Sahaba

00:27:43--> 00:28:10

to see and the prophet Isaiah was exactly Okay, thank you. And they had to call everyone to eat and cinema is just looking at the prophet to see Is he gonna pick up is he going to pick up a date or not. And the prophet Isaiah said, um, because he didn't want people to feel like he wouldn't eat it, he would pick up a date, and then put it down like, act as if he was anybody would need to insert them, I would see that that the Prophet actually never put any of the dates into his mouth, but he will hate it. That's one. That's one of the prophecies one of the pieces of information that I was given. And then the next day, he would bring dates, and he put in from the Prophet Ali's thoughts to

00:28:10--> 00:28:44

them and the Companions, he was saying, this is, this is a gift. And he would go and stand behind the tree and inspire the Prophet. See. And you will see that the earliest thought was the lamb would would call us a habit to eat some of the dates and then he would himself take ones he was gonna eat it himself, for quite some, if anything, there's a second one. The third piece of information was the seal of prophecy that exists between his shoulder blades on a salad with him. It was him I couldn't imagine how to do that. And what is he supposed to do? So cinema start walking awkwardly around the profit as he was giving his Dubs. Sometimes it was talking to us to his companions,

00:28:45--> 00:29:16

trying to take a look from from one side or the other, or maybe angle himself in a certain way got on a tree to try and see things. So the Prophet always noticed and doing that. So he called them for quite a while, yes, it might come here. So when I came to the Prophet, so I said him when he came, he took off his shirt and showed him his back, said Allah, obviously, you knew what he was looking for. So said a man saw them when they were. And when he saw it, it's like, any 40 years of agony and pain, all came gushing out all at once for him only Allahu Anhu. Like all the all of the suffering that he's been through

00:29:18--> 00:29:25

the years of being enslaved the years of being poor, the years where he missed his parents and his home.

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

And all the difficulties and all the hardships that he had to

00:29:30--> 00:29:52

endure really low, high. No, just like, I feel like the emotion of all that time just came gushing out and he just fell to his knees so low, I knew kissing the Prophet. So I said on my hands and feet, and sobbing, and I saw this that I would fall to his knees and pick up cinnamon and hug him and ask him, you know, what was your problem? And then cinema would tell the Prophet so let's tell them the story that I just told you.

00:29:54--> 00:30:00

And I saw to slam the sob. They could see you could see in his eyes, the fast and it fast

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

To nation

00:30:02--> 00:30:06

and how impressed he was and just for clearly I had is,

00:30:07--> 00:30:36

is wait for a moment from another Sahaba Nicole all the companions for Katana do. So they came and sat for Karla Isla Yeah, idly him Mikasa stylee please repeat upon them, what you have just told me, I want everyone to hear this story. So it's another repeat the story again to the sahaba. And they would sit there in awe of a man who would spend 45 years or so in search of the truth

00:30:38--> 00:31:13

only to come come by many, many years later, so that I would buy himself out of out of slavery eventually. And when joined the Prophet sallallaahu Selim in the in the main battles and of course, he was the person who, who gave the advice of digging the trench on the day of hunt duck. But just the story itself and the Prophet is also one of the Hadith that we have, there may be some, you know, talk about its authenticity, but in general, it's acceptable. And the scholars are in high favor of it, he would say Sandman min, little beat so that is one of us, the people of the beat, meaning the family the Prophet was I think it was a cinema as a part of my family.

00:31:15--> 00:31:21

Because living in Arabia, he doesn't have a family and he's gonna smell fatty see, because he had no lineage

00:31:22--> 00:31:57

that attached him to Arabia or to Arabs. So the Prophet clairsentient he's one of us. He's one of my family, Mina Al Bayt. You'll see this man. And he had a lot of I mean, if you were to encounter the man, you think he was someone, he would be someone who was naive or someone with a lot of experience. Now, obviously, somebody has has probably that one of the most interesting life stories there are. And obviously, he's someone who's very, very experienced in general in life, and only Allah who I knew which and I'm gonna give you an example of that, because later on, the Prophet also sent after it's a man by himself out of slavery, he what he did with him, and we've done it that he

00:31:57--> 00:32:32

wouldn't he would enforce something we'll talk about later in Sharla is where he would couple Sahaba people and say your brothers now not not blood brothers, but but their religion brothers, Faith brothers, so he made a good daughter and Salomon Brothers, and they became very good friends. And I'm gonna give you an example of an a story. So men once came to dad's house, and oh, my god, that was there. And I would go, that wasn't my god, I gave her how to Kim. How are you doing? Dave? I would do that. For Karla hija. Taylor, who here Holly here has no need within his family, but he was upset he could see from the Tortona what she was saying he doesn't need his wife doesn't need his

00:32:32--> 00:33:06

family anymore. She's saying something that he seems to be neglectful. And she was upset. So cinema asked about that what the issue was he understood? And then he went looking for his friend he found his van Fukada email last night. What are you doing? Yeah, and you also learn how to accumulate and hamdulillah I'm very capable of it. I'm spending my time fasting the days and praying at night. So the masala tell him like, it seems like your family is not very happy with with with the time you're spending with them. So he gets into an argument and I would go to that gets upset and telling him no, no, I had the right to do all of this. This is the way to do it. Because they

00:33:08--> 00:33:21

are in need of Sika Alika calm when he begged Manikarnika Well, he's Oh jika Lika Lika Lika haka, he tells him something extremely important, tells them you see,

00:33:22--> 00:33:31

your body has a right to upon you, your soul has arrived upon you, your wife has a right to party, your family has a right upon you can spend all of your time doing Dawa, or doing whatever it is that you do

00:33:33--> 00:33:54

in terms of actions of hire. But he didn't like that I would have got so he got upset. So he went to the Prophet. So I said limited with cinnamon, they're going to jail sort of like this, what cinnamon is telling me he's like, I shouldn't be doing this. I shouldn't do this. So the Prophet is also of course, knows the experience and wisdom that cinnamon had picked up throughout the user, as he said, What did you tell him? So someone told him this? I said, Yes, we'll have a Carla sadhaka Selma cinnamon is saying the right thing.

00:33:56--> 00:34:22

What you were told, yeah, but that is something that I endorse. And that's why we actually use these words from some as a hadith of the prophets of Allah. So we sent him because he endorsed it. Time would, would pass and during the time of, they would finally conquer Persia. And I want to help out with sense and I will finally see as the governor of Isfahan and the the city around it, the area around it. And my dad and

00:34:24--> 00:34:26

can you just go back? This seems not to be working.

00:34:29--> 00:34:31

You guys gonna fix it later? Or is it?

00:34:33--> 00:34:38

Is hustle Yeah, that's fine. Yeah. Sorry. I don't know if

00:34:40--> 00:34:41

they can fix it.

00:34:43--> 00:35:00

He was sending us the governor. As a manufacturer, he would go back and he would be going he will see his old house and he would see his is his relatives and the people that you left many many years ago and people still remember there are people even though it's very old people still remember it's a man you remember the story of him Lee?

00:35:00--> 00:35:14

Having his father in the and all that. And it was just it was just a very emotional moment for him or the low I knew he came back he he returned back to his home victorious as a leader, as a governor. And he would he would govern, span for many years.

00:35:15--> 00:35:21

Humbly, and I insincerely. And he would bring a lot of prosperity to the place that he wants left.

00:35:24--> 00:35:43

The question at the end of the man's story is what would what would, what would you sacrifice? What the truth? What are you willing to put up? With? What are you willing to give up? In order to seek the truth? Send him out of the line or give up his everything you give up everything? You give a four to five decades of his life to

00:35:45--> 00:35:59

to achieve the truth to obtain it. So the question, the second question I have for you is what what if you were already given the truth, whatever righteousness is at the palm in the palm of your hand, whatever is somewhere in the shelf of every

00:36:00--> 00:36:10

every house, wherever it was right there staring you in the face, then want somebody to spend his whole life just seeking it, trying to obtain trying to find it. And we were given it.

00:36:12--> 00:36:19

I can't imagine that the hisab of cinema is similar to the who said that we will have so Madden, I need if you only did what,

00:36:20--> 00:36:29

that's all he did, just seeking the truth and did nothing after that. I'm pretty sure he would be higher up in gender than someone who's given the truth, and just did the minimum, the base minimum of what's required of them.

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

It's a scary thought and it's worth contemplating and reflecting upon. You were given the truth he was offered to you.

00:36:37--> 00:36:58

Make sure that you use that privilege wisely because someone likes him I spent all his life in seeking it. He had to go through an unimaginable suffering and difficulty to actually come by it. And that's what the prophets I said themselves to the man in the 80s, who's one of us. So I got your hand because you know that you went to South Africa to really cosmological environment in order to save us money.
