said never, they are not our teachers. The Crusaders are not our teachers, we have our own principles, we will stand by our principles. This is what we are proud of. This is what Islamic civilization stands for. This is what we cherish. This is why we turn around and say to the haters and islamophobes No matter how much you try to link Islam with barbarity and backwardness, and

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

and other you know unpleasant things, we will never believe you because we have a history to look up to. We have characters like from Tanzania, how do we have our prophets Allah lights on we always companion

00:00:44--> 00:00:57

Sultan Salahuddin had taken the city of Jerusalem from the Crusaders in 1187 ce II in the month of July, after a very long, hard campaign,

00:00:58--> 00:01:06

trying to unite the Muslims under one umbrella so that they can take back the security of Islam. Now, when that happened, the pope

00:01:08--> 00:01:13

encouraged another crusade to reclaim or re take the city of Jerusalem.

00:01:14--> 00:02:00

So tangela up was also found and cut the long story short, Richard, having traveled for nearly a year arrived in acre. And as soon as he took the city, there was a battle between the Sultan and him. And there was Richard had 3000 Muslims as his prisoners, and all 3000 of them were slaughtered in one day. Richard was the very first character, right. And he had shown how barbaric he was by killing 3000 Muslims an acre, right? Despite that the Sultan was so kind to him. And he even offered him you know, fresh fruits if he needed Actually, he did send him fresh, fresh fruits from his territory, and also offered him his physician, physician, personal physician. And they were they

00:02:00--> 00:02:40

were these exchanges between which not only that photons, alladhina uv, LA, after Richard had failed to take the city, he was six miles away, six miles away from the city of Jerusalem. When the Sultan was actually inside the city, and the generals of Sultan, they came to him and they said, leave the city. Okay. And, you know, if the city is taken again, we can go in, we can try to take it back. So Don said, I will never leave the people of this city. Never. After seeing what happened in acre, I will not leave the city of Jerusalem alone. So, the teacher of some times a Latina Yogi, he

00:02:42--> 00:03:18

advised him in fact, the Sultan asked him what should I do in this situation? Richard was six miles away. And where did Richard come from? He came from England, England and France. That's where his army came from, because he governed both territories, parts of both part part of England and part of France was governed by Richard. He had come this far 1000s of miles away, traveling for years, and six miles away from the city. So Tom, and the population is worried that Richard if he takes the city, he will do exactly what happened in 1099. And the Crusaders took the city for the first time they massacred the entire population.

00:03:19--> 00:03:24

Right. So photon approach does teacher shift by holding a bunch of dad.

00:03:25--> 00:03:29

Bow the ninja dot advised him that who gives victory?

00:03:30--> 00:03:37

He asked him who gives victory he said a lot. Is it okay? Go and ask Allah subhanaw taala ask Allah subhanaw taala for respect

00:03:38--> 00:04:23

and bow the matcha dot who wrote a biography of futons alladhina Ub, you must read it. The biography of photons allowed in a UV Okay, is written by, by howdini Winchell dad. He writes in this biography, the Sultan went to the masjid Al Aqsa, and he stood on the masala and he cried to such an extent that the place of such that was wet with his tears. He was it is beyond me now, the Crusader King. He's a vicious character. He has come with a barbaric army, and we don't know what they're going to do. It is in your hands. For some reason. Richard turned around six miles away from the city of Jerusalem and he goes back does not even attack the city doesn't even attack the city. Now,

00:04:23--> 00:04:25

historians give a number of reasons why he did that.

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

Whatever those reasons are,

00:04:29--> 00:04:45

we know that oftentimes, UB was accepted by law anabella imagine Can you imagine? Can you imagine someone came six miles away from you? And turn turns around and goes back to France and dies in France? Then your law saved the Muslims from his fitrah

00:04:46--> 00:04:52

but after the city of Jerusalem was taken, what photons to be due to the people.

00:04:53--> 00:04:55

They do what happened in 1099.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

The Crusaders killed even animals, let alone

00:05:00--> 00:05:07

Humans, the Jews were killed. The Muslims are killed, and the Armenian Christians were killed in the city of Jerusalem. Everyone was massacred.

00:05:08--> 00:05:13

So Ponce de la Deena up when he took the city, some of his hawkish generals,

00:05:15--> 00:05:45

they were of the opinion that we should do what happened to the Muslims said never. They are not our teachers. The Crusaders are not our teachers, we have our own principles, we will stand by our principles. This is what we are proud of. This is what Islamic civilization stands for, this is what we cherish. This is why we turn around and say to the haters, and islamophobes No matter how much you try to link Islam with barbarity and backwardness, and,

00:05:46--> 00:06:23

and other you know, unpleasant things, we will never believe you because we have a history to look up to. We have characters like from Tanzania, how do we have our Prophet satellites, and we have his companions, we have the terrain, we have our Anima our Ru, we have our teachers to look up to, they have taught us to be civilized Do they have taught us to be merciful, be compassionate, even when you are in power? Your true reality comes to light when you are in power. So photons allowed you to be paid from his own pocket sent people back on his expense to places like France and Britain. So when people came back to Britain,

00:06:25--> 00:06:37

you know, so tomsula, Dina up within his life, he became a legend. He become a legend Christians in Britain in England, they were saying good things, it was impossible at that time to praise a Muslim in Europe.

00:06:39--> 00:07:01

If you did, that the catholic church would be on you. How can you praise the infidel, the incredible fighting against is the enemy of the Christians. This is how things were black and white. And amazingly, if you want to read books on this topic, how the Europeans viewed the Muslims during the Middle Ages. A very important book I recommend is

00:07:03--> 00:07:10

Islam and the West, making of an image Islam and the West making of an image

00:07:12--> 00:07:59

authored by Daniel Norman, Daniel Norman, a must read for anyone interested in how Islam was viewed and how Islam was, you know, tarnished and maligned and, you know, completely, you know, lied against throughout the Middle Ages and nothing has changed. Again, the media is doing the same thing today. Today, it is not the Catholic Church. It is not the the clergy, the monks, writing Chronicles, it is the secular monks or other monks who have come in different guys to spread lies and hate against Islam and Muslims. But Alhamdulillah we have our history, we have our characters, we have our examples to this day, to follow of mercy, compassion and justice. So sometimes a lot of

00:07:59--> 00:08:26

the newbie had a lot of influence in Britain at that time because of his good gesture of letting people go in one day. So Tom savini up, you know, freed 1000s of people from slavery, people who are captured after Jerusalem was taken. Right. So tonsil, how do you be was remembered in good words, by the European throughout the Middle Ages. It doesn't stop there. Even after that
