a very important topic within the Muslim history. And that topic was the Battle of Karbala, the catastrophe of Karbala, the martyrdom of profane Roger lavon. Actually, it was the week before the last week, nearly two weeks ago, we went through that topic on the 10th of Muharram when the incident actually took place so under this title brothers and sisters, we will consistently every week, unless there are breaks for whatever reasons. Every week, we aim to deliver different topics, lectures on different topics, we aim to cover a number of different areas to do with Muslim civilization, Muslim history in general, things about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam questions raised

00:02:31--> 00:02:37

about the Muslim civilization are difficult questions asked about

00:02:40--> 00:02:45

Muslim history in general. So we will we will be addressing those

00:02:46--> 00:03:07

inshallah tala those questions. So please do share this video with your context far and wide so people can benefit from this particular content. Today, I will be addressing a number of topics very quickly to give you a summary of the topics I am delivering today. those topics are

00:03:08--> 00:03:26

the prophethood of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And then some people raised these questions about the age of igrt, Allahu Allah, the age of Isaiah. And also we will be going through some other questions to do with

00:03:28--> 00:04:16

for example, violence and the prophet of Islam was the prophet of Islam a violent man or the violent for the sake of being violent Okay, and what was the attitude of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam towards non Muslims in general Okay, these are the four points we will be covering today in today's lecture. Okay, I know the time is very short. And approximately I will I will have about 10 minutes for each point, I will try my best to squeeze as much information as possible with these within these 10 minutes for each point, so that you can take maximum benefit. And then I would like to invite you all to go and do your own research on these respective topics. Okay, so the first point I

00:04:16--> 00:05:00

will be addressing today under the heading or under the title, unveiling the Muslim civilization as you might have seen on the poster, shared by live Dean on its pages, the title of the series is unveiling the Muslim civilization. And under this title, we will be covering a number of different topics to do with Muslim history, Muslim civilization, and all things Islamic. So now, right now we will begin with the topic, proof of the Prophet heard. As we know, we are Muslims Alhamdulillah and as Muslims we know that Allah God Almighty sent many prophets to different people at different times in different places to guide humanity.

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

To the ultimate truth, and what is that ultimate truth, there is only one God. There is only one God who deserves to be worshipped. And that is a law. We call him a law. Okay? And in different places at different times people have called him with different names, but the name that has been given to us in the Quran, in the final revelation from God Almighty, to humanity, the name is Allah, Allah, according to some aerobus, some experts of the Arabic language, a lot is a combination of two words,

00:05:40--> 00:06:38

which is the definite article in the Arabic language and Ilaha, which means the Deity, the Deity, in other words, the deity a lot means the Deity, the one who deserves to be worshipped. So Allah is our God. We worship Him, day and night. We worship Him, standing, sitting, sleeping, Allah tells us in the Quran out to be learner. chatango rajim Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, pull in Salafi cuando su ke mahaya mama de la hora berala mean, O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, tell them your followers, that my life, my death, my worship, my sacrifice, everything is for Allah. So I'm Muslim from the day he is born, till the day he or she dies, is in submission to God Almighty, every single

00:06:38--> 00:07:06

human is in submission to God Almighty willingly or unwillingly. Muslims, who claim to have submitted to God's will, are in submission willingly, some more. So, others lesser, but to a lesser degree. So Muslims, they vary in the submission. So Allah Who created us to worship Him, sent many different prophets in different times,

00:07:08--> 00:07:58

in different places, to guide humanity to the truth. And the truth is to turn people away from idols, from things that have made up for themselves to worship instead of Allah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth. So profits came for that reason. And many profits came in this line of profits. Profit started with the very creation of man, or the money salon. Adam, who was created by law, the first man, and then he was a profit. And then profits came after him like no ha. Then we had Abraham, we had Moses, we had Jesus, Lisa Ali Salam. And finally we had Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the final message to humanity. Now many people raised this question, Is he a

00:07:58--> 00:08:01

true prophet of God? Is he even a prophet?

00:08:02--> 00:08:45

is a good question. So we have a number of ways. How we answer this particular question, Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is indeed a prophet of God, I don't want to make a circular argument that the Quran says he's a prophet, therefore, he's a prophet. And he says that Quran is from God. Therefore, he's a prophet. I don't want to go into a circular argument, I can use external sources, to explain why he may be a prophet. For example, very quickly, in the previous scriptures, the scriptures of the Jews and the Christians, there is a prophet foretold. And this is centuries before the prophet of Islam, Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was born. And am I making these bold,

00:08:46--> 00:08:59

lavish claims without substance? No, absolutely not. When we open the previous scriptures, which we believe to have originally come from God Almighty, I repeat, which we the Muslims believe,

00:09:01--> 00:09:17

originally came from God, and they were altered, they were changed. And some changes distorted the meaning other, other changes did not. So those passages that we refer to

00:09:18--> 00:09:41

about the prophet of Islam, Prophet Muhammad, that actually allude to the coming of a prophet in the future in Arabia, those passages have indeed been changed. But in the language, we do not have the original language, or for example, Moses, we do not have the original document that was given to the prophet Isaiah, for example.

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

We don't have the original documents, or the original revelation of Jesus Christ, the gospel, or in other words, the NGO, NGO means the good news, right? And gospel is a translation of NGO in the English language. Okay, so

00:10:00--> 00:10:49

was the good news of Isa Salam that he gave to his people? Do we have the original? Absolutely not. No one will ever claim that. Therefore, we really have to dig deeper into the previous scriptures that have some remnants of truth. I repeat, previous scriptures, the scriptures of the Jews and the Christians have remnants of truth in them. We do not throw away the baby with the bathwater. We don't say all of the Bible is corrupted. At the same time, we don't say all of it is the original revelation that was once upon a time given by God Almighty to prophets. So what do we say? We say that the text of the Bible as it stands currently or the the previous scriptures, okay,

00:10:51--> 00:11:46

have been altered. However, the remnants of the truth are still there. For example, the book of Isaiah chapter 42, it foretells the coming of an Arabian prophet. For details, I invite you all to Google, Isaiah, I as a i, a haitch. Isaiah chapter 42, is talking about a prophet coming from Arabia, although some Jewish rabbis, and Christian missionaries will deny this, they will try to cover this up. But the reality is, when you read the passages, they don't fit anywhere else in the history of humanity, other than a prophet from Arabia. What are the qualities that are mentioned in the book of Isaiah chapter 42? The entire chapter talks about one particular person and that person

00:11:46--> 00:12:39

is coming from Arabia, how do we know that we will see very quickly. So what are the qualities of this person, this person will be a chosen one of God, one can say that could be anyone. True, that could be anyone, we go forward, this person will bring a new law. This person will bring in the Hebrew language, the word is Torah. This person will bring a comprehensive law after the law of Moses, and all Israelite prophets followed the law of Moses, even Jesus, one of the last prophets to have been sent to the Israelites, himself followed the Mosaic Law, so it could not be any one of them. It was a different person who is bringing a new Torah, new Torah, a new law, a new way of

00:12:39--> 00:13:17

life. Okay. It doesn't stop there. This person who will bring a new law Ireland's shall wait for his law. I am literally quoting word by word, the book of Isaiah chapter 42. Okay, you can go and see the verses, verses one to four, where all of this is put down. He will be a gentle person. In other words, you will not break a flax as estates in the Bible. In the book of Isaiah, he will not scream and shout, okay. He will be a gentle person. He will put idol worshipers to shame. Okay, he will take people out of darkness and he will bring them to light.

00:13:18--> 00:14:09

Like the Quran clearly states that Allah takes people out of darkness and he brings them to life. Exactly the same language is used in Isaiah 42. Okay, and he will come for Gentiles, he will come for Gentiles, he will not only he will not only come for the Israelites, he will also come for non Israelites, as Isaiah 42 clearly claims and none of the Israelite prophets claimed to have come for other than Israelites. I repeat, none of the Israelite prophets ever claimed that they came from anywhere anyone else. So brothers and sisters, Isaiah 4230 talks about a profit coming in the future, who will come for the Gentiles also, he will bring a new law, he will put judgment on the

00:14:09--> 00:14:23

air, he will spread justice on the land, he will put justice on the land and then we get to the fourth point of this lecture, Prophet Mohammed a non Muslims, we will see how that justice was manifested. Okay, it doesn't stop there.

00:14:25--> 00:14:57

So, this person will come from a particular or a specific geography. And where is that geography is in verse number 11 of Isaiah, chapter 42, verse number 11 states, let the villages of Hadar rejoice. Let them lift up their voices. Let them shout from top of mountains. Okay, let them rejoice in Salah. Okay, now the question is

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

the passage is played

00:15:00--> 00:15:52

The state let the deserts rejoice, or which doesn't. Which doesn't. Is the passage talking about? Is it the Chinese Gobi desert? Is it the California desert? Or is it the Sahara desert? It specifies the geography even more, let the villages of Canada rejoice. Who is k dar? Where is k dar? k dar is the second son of his mind. According to the book of Genesis, the book of Genesis chapter 25, verse 13, clearly highlights that k dar is the second son of his mind and his Salaam. And if that's the case, brothers and sisters, then he is also an ancestor of the Prophet of Islam, Prophet Mohammed, K. Dar, is a direct ancestor of the Prophet of Islam, Prophet Muhammad, according to a genealogy put

00:15:52--> 00:15:59

down by a mom in New Jersey, the poverty in his history of the Prophet. If that's the case, then

00:16:01--> 00:16:53

Hadar has a direct link with the prophet of Islam, Prophet Muhammad. So the villages where there were the children of Kadir live, let them rejoice. And if that's the case, then it can only refer to an Arabian phenomenon, there is something happening in Arabia. Now it makes it more specific when it mentioned seller verses 11 to 13. If you read it mentioned, seller, the chapter mentioned seller seller is a mountain range in Medina, exactly where the prophet of Islam ended up with his message for the last 13 years of his life when he preached Islam to the to the Arabian tribes, and many of them accepted Islam, to an extent that the prophet of Islam is even buried near Salah in Medina. So

00:16:53--> 00:17:42

this prophecy could not be referring to anyone else, but to the prophet of Islam, who came from Arabia, who is one of the descendants of Qaeda. And this passage is clearly foretelling, a future event. And it has already occurred, the prophet has arrived, the law has arrived. The law is the law of the Quran. Okay, judgment was spread throughout the planet Earth, justice was established by Prophet, Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and his followers his companions. Right. He was a gentle person, he was a gentle man, he never killed anyone with his own hands. Rather, people died in wars, they waged upon the Prophet. Most of the battles the Prophet had to fight were defensive. Most I'm

00:17:42--> 00:17:54

not saying all most of them are defensive, and others were pre emptive. Others were pre emptive battles with the Prophet had to fight in order to protect, but with his own hands, he never

00:17:55--> 00:18:16

killed anyone. He was a gentle man, he was a gentle person, he was the most gentle person to walk the planet Earth, a God according to the most closest people to him, including his wives, they testified that he was a very, very gentle person. So therefore, brothers and sisters, to give you a summary very quickly moving on to the next point.

00:18:17--> 00:18:28

This is a very powerful prophecy in the previous scriptures, were, in my opinion, Prophet of Islam is mentioned in very, very clear terms.

00:18:29--> 00:19:04

It doesn't stop there. How do we know a prophet is a prophet, a prophet prophesize he prophesizes and if these prophecies come to pass, then he's a true prophet of God. Okay. Prophet Mohammed made many prophecies, and they have been fulfilled word by word, I do not have the time to go through all of them, but I will mention one in particular passingly Okay, the prophet of Islam Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he is narrated to have said authentically, that when

00:19:05--> 00:19:15

these barefooted, naked, destitute three qualities you mentioned in this Hadees these barefooted, naked, destitute

00:19:17--> 00:19:19

Arabs or shepherds.

00:19:20--> 00:19:59

Because these shepherds, he was referring to the Arabs, the Arabs, the Bedouin, in particular office time, when these people, they accumulate so much wealth, that they start building the they'll start building skyscrapers and they compete in that they compete in that, then the hour is closed, then the Day of Judgment is closed, Allahu Akbar. This prophecy has been fulfilled. word by word. Let me explain. You know all the ruling families of the Gulf region in the Arabian Peninsula today, they are Bedouin by region. They are By the way, the house of Saud, the house of

00:20:01--> 00:20:37

You know, the ruling house in the United Arab Emirates, the ruling House of Bahrain and Qatar, all of these people, they are originally Bedouin, they descend from bedrooms and they are the richest people in the world arguably, and they are building the tallest skyscrapers in the world. Burj Khalifa which is in Dubai is the tallest building in the world. Now, another family is planning to build another skyscraper in Jeddah. So, these are these destitute once upon a time destitute, naked.

00:20:39--> 00:20:55

barefooted shepherds are now building the tallest skyscrapers. Why did the proverb mentioned the skyscrapers? It is not about this building skyscrapers. It's about having so much wealth, which the Arabs have today the Bedouins have today

00:20:56--> 00:21:38

that they start to use that money to build the tallest buildings in the world. So this is a phenomenon which has come to pass, the prophet specifically foretold that this is going to happen. And some of the scholars of Islam during the Middle Ages later on, when commenting on a when commenting upon this role, this particular hobbies, they were astonished that how will that actually happen? It would be a sight, it would be a sight to see these destitute naked ship shepherds building skyscrapers, because that was absolutely incredible. And now we have seen how that has taken place. To my brothers and sisters. This was a prophecy made by the prophet of Islam, probably

00:21:38--> 00:21:52

a Muslim Muslim, who was indeed a true prophet of Allah, Who prophesized many other things. For example, He talked about the conquest of Rome, Persia,

00:21:53--> 00:21:55

and the Arabs in particular,

00:21:59--> 00:22:00

the prophet foretold

00:22:01--> 00:22:58

to his companions, that you people as destitute, as underdeveloped, as underprivileged, as you may be, or as you are, you will defeat the Romans, you will defeat the Persians, and you will create an empire of unprecedented scale, did that come to pass one of his companions, the prophet of prophets companion, and even had him who heard this, when the Prophet told him that wait for that time, when you will open the treasures of kisara. In other words, hospital, the Persian Emperor, Adi, who was previously a Christian, and he had become a Muslim, having seen the Prophet having met with him, he said, Oh, Prophet of Allah, are you referring to the son of hormoz?

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

kisara, the son of hormoz. In other words, the Persian Emperor, the professor Salaam, said, Absolutely, indeed, I'm talking about kisara, the front and foremost, you will open his treasure, in other words, you will conquer his treasure, and the Adi was alive when the Battle of the Sega had taken place, and the capital of kisara, or the capital of the Persian Emperor, the assassinated emperor was captured by the destitute, underprivileged Muslims in the year 636. And that capital was discipline, also known as muda. In the Arabic language, it was captured, and the treasure of kisara fell into the hands of the Sahaba, the companions of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam. So

00:23:48--> 00:24:30

these prophecies are made by the prophet of Islam not in vain. His people followed him, they believed in him that died for his faith because they believed he was a true prophet of God. So Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was indeed a true prophet of Allah. Because of external sources as I have given you external evidence from the previous scriptures very quickly, and because of external, sorry, internal elements within the Quran and the Sunnah. The Quran, points to his prophet heard the Quran is such a powerful book, that it created a civilization of an unprecedented scale. This is exactly what we will be discussing throughout this series. Okay. unveiling the Muslim

00:24:30--> 00:24:44

civilization is a product of the Quran the Quran is at the root. Without the Quran, there is no Islam. Without Islam. There is no Muslim civilization. There are no libraries above that. There are no

00:24:45--> 00:24:59

universities of Cordoba, there are no paved roads. There is no Muslim civilization from northern China to all the way to southern France, the largest chunk of land ever governed by one group of people.

00:25:00--> 00:25:33

As foretold by sort of no Surah 24, Chapter 24 of the Quran verse 55, whereby a lot promised that you will take the land, you the people of Arabia in particular, and those who embraced Islam and within the first century, will take the world by shock. And it was a pleasant shock, because the Muslims established justice and peace, very quickly having established why the prophet of Islam is a prophet of God.

00:25:34--> 00:25:44

He did not go against any of the previous messages of the prophets of God, because the core message of previous prophets was what

00:25:45--> 00:25:53

it was, worship one God alone, here, O Israel, the Lord, our God is one.

00:25:54--> 00:26:45

Lord, He is one God. This is what Moses Moses said, This is what Abraham said, This is what Jesus said, this is exactly what Noah and Adam were saying. There is only one God, this was the core message. They were all circumcised, they all prayed alike, they prostrated, all of them fell in prostration Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam did not digress, he did not divert from the part of the previous prophecy confirmed and strengthened the previous messages and brought the final message to humanity in the shape of the Quran. There is no prophet after him, there is no messenger after him, those who want salvation, those who want to be good with Allah, the creator, God Almighty,

00:26:45--> 00:27:25

those who want to attain success in this life and then the Hereafter, then they ought to follow Islam, which was the religion of Jesus, which was the religion of Moses, which was the religion of Abraham, and Noah and Adam, all of them followed Islam because Islam means submission to the will of God. Moving on to the next point, having established wire the Providence lamb with a profit, a true prophet of God, age of Asia. Now in order in order to cast doubt, upon the authenticity, or the integrity or the credibility of the Prophet of Islam, a lot of people raised this question that how can you follow a prophet who married at nine years old?

00:27:26--> 00:27:33

He married a girl who was nine, how can you follow someone like that? It's a valid question. In this day and age.

00:27:37--> 00:27:51

It is a very valid question. In this current day and age, because we have all been conditioned by media, by culture, by the environment we live in, by our circumstances, today, no one

00:27:52--> 00:28:43

in his right mind, would ever imagine giving his daughter away in marriage to another man at the age of 910, or 11, you would all agree with me, and I agree with you, I wouldn't do that. I would not I have three daughters, I wouldn't give them in marriage at the age of 910, or 11. Because that's not the norm. Today, I have been conditioned very differently. I grew up in a very different environment. However, having said that, up to the 19th century, up to the year 1900. Ladies and gentlemen, prepare for the shock, up to the year 1900. This was the norm. This was the norm. The norm was that a girl could be married at age 10. This was happening throughout Europe, throughout

00:28:43--> 00:28:50

Africa, throughout Asia. This was the law. This was the legal position in Britain.

00:28:52--> 00:29:11

The beacon of liberal democracies in the world, Britain, United Kingdom, okay, where liberalism was born, arguably, this is where some of these liberal philosophers or secular philosophers were born. People like Thomas Paine, john Stuart Mill,

00:29:13--> 00:29:14

David Hume,

00:29:15--> 00:29:17

john Locke, many

00:29:18--> 00:29:59

giant Enlightenment thinkers were born in Britain, up to the 19th century, up to the 1870s 1870s, up to 1870s, the age of consent, the age of marriage in Britain, in the United Kingdom in London, was seven, nine and 12. Who said so, William Blackstone, William Blackstone, whose commentaries on the English law published in 1867, on page number 110, in that particular edition, it states a girl can be given in marriage at seven

00:30:00--> 00:30:34

And she can receive $1 at nine. And she can actually dissolve the marriage at 12. Or she can consent to it at 12. So in other words, the minimum age of marriage in Britain, according to William Blackstone, in the year 1867. Wars seven, before we jump to the profit in the seventh century, let's travel backwards, century by century, let's move into the 18th century, and see what the age of marriage was throughout the human

00:30:36--> 00:31:30

dwelling. Okay, then we move to the 17th century, we can move to the 1615 1413 1211. And by the time you get there, you won't ask this question anymore, because you will come to realize this was the norm of humanity, the age of consent, the age of marriage for girls was very, very young. In those societies, people would get their daughters married as soon as they hit puberty. And puberty was often determined by menstrual cycle. As soon as girls had menstrual cycles, they were married off to adult men, men could be turned 2030 4050 years old, depending on where people lived and how they got married. And this was the norm. And I have delivered an entire lecture brothers and sisters on my

00:31:30--> 00:31:42

YouTube channel, if you YouTube my name, Adnan Rashid, you will see my YouTube channel, go to my youtube youtube channel, there is a video titled The age of AI chat

00:31:43--> 00:32:30

historical analysis, I repeat the age of AI a historical analysis by a non machine, I have delivered nearly two hours lecture or two hours long lecture on this very topic, I invite you all to go and watch that lecture carefully. This is your homework, in order to understand the concept of marriage throughout the Middle Ages, the early modern period, and then within the 19th century, when the Industrial Revolution was taking place, you must watch this lecture and it will blow your minds away your concepts will become very, very clear. So make a note and if you want sources I have used for my lecture, there is a pinned comment to that lecture, the first pinned comment, you will see many

00:32:30--> 00:33:17

many links, where the sources can be found all the references are there, which I have used to my lecture, you will be shocked you will be blown away. Now one can ask, ask this question that, okay, fine. At that time, it was normal people were doing it because life expectancy was low. girls would, you know women would die in childbirth at a very young age, for example, in 20s. By 30s, most women would be dead, you know, life expectancy was very, very low. An average age span for a woman during the Middle Ages was not more than 35. So because the lifespan was so short, people would get their daughters of married very young. And it was normal for that time, time. But your profit. Your

00:33:17--> 00:33:46

Prophet, Prophet Muhammad is an eternal, eternal mortal for you. He is an eternal model for you. So if he's an eternal model, how would you practice that particular Sunnah? Okay, as those people would put it, how would you practice that? So now of getting married to a nine year old girl today? And again, this is a very good question. It's a valid question. And the answer to this question, again, is that not everything the Prophet gate we have to do.

00:33:47--> 00:34:40

The Prophet himself told us that, that certain things he did, we don't have to do them. For example, it is the prophet who told us to be very careful, to be very, very and sensitive, be very sensitive of the cultural norms of the people you live with. It is not obligatory in Islam to get married to younger women. It is not obligatory in Islam, to get married to an older woman for that matter, okay. It is it was an option. But today, scholars, they advise against it. Why? Because it is against the norm today. And because it is not an obligation in Islam, you don't have to do it. And the providence of taught the Muslims be very sensitive of the times, and the people and the place

00:34:40--> 00:34:59

you live in. Be very, very sensitive. The concept of hikma wisdom is taught in the Quran. For example, how do we learn this from the Prophet? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam wanted to bring the door of the Kaaba down to the ground level. If you go to Masuda haram today, Mecca

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

You see the door of the car by is almost seven feet tall. It is very, very high. And the prophets Allah Salaam found it like that made by the Qureshi that way. So when the prophets of Salaam conquered Mecca, he said to Isaiah even though he had conquered Mecca, he was the owner of the city of Mecca. He said to Elijah, oh, Ayesha,

00:35:23--> 00:36:09

if it was not for your people, I would, I would have brought the door of the Kaaba to the ground level, but I leave it because I do not want to cause controversy. So the Prophet taught us from his own example, that if something is abnormal, in a particular society, which is not practiced, and which is deemed controversial, we, the Muslims are advised by the prophet to stay away from it. Okay, we don't have to do it. It is not an obligation in Islam. So that's the response to those people who raised this question, okay, that your prophet is in an eternal model, and it is part of his eternal mod, you know, his eternal message, that we have to be very, we have to be sensitive of

00:36:09--> 00:36:55

the culture of the time, and of the places we live in. Okay, so we have to be very careful about the people we live with. Right? So this is the point. Even Muslim societies today don't do that. They don't get the daughters of married so young. So it's not the norm anymore. We don't have to do it. Okay. And same point can be applied to many other things that are not obligatory in Islam. We have a science in Islam dealing with these particular questions is called Muslim and Masada Okay, Muslim ha, and muscled up the pros and cons, the pros and cons of a particular given given action in Islam, especially when it's not obligatory. So this is the answer to those people who raised this question

00:36:55--> 00:37:05

very quickly. Having answered this question and for details, brothers and sisters, again, watch my detailed lecture on my YouTube channel title, the age of Ayesha,

00:37:06--> 00:37:40

our historical consideration or historical analysis by a non machine, if you will, YouTube it, you will find the lecture in sha Allah. Moving on to the next point, inshallah. The violence of the Prophet of Islam, was a prophet was the prophet of Islam a violent man? Was he indiscriminately violent? You didn't want to just kill people? Was the blood thirsty like a lot of Christian missionary islamophobes extremist atheists and paid Islam haters around the world claim in some of these newspaper writing in newspapers and other places.

00:37:43--> 00:37:46

One thing is very funny about Islam haters.

00:37:48--> 00:38:08

They all hate each other. Like, for example, Christian missionaries, they don't like atheists. They don't like atheists, they mock Christians and Christian faith. But when it comes to Islamophobia, they are all united. You will see so called ex Muslims, ex Muslims, you will see extremist atheists.

00:38:09--> 00:38:46

Although I don't I don't believe there is such a thing. And I mean, there's no such thing as an atheist. They're all agnostics. In reality, they claim to be atheists. Okay. Being an atheist is a claim which we can never substantiate. Okay. And then Christian missionaries. I don't even know if they are Christian. Okay. They are Christian missionaries. Good Christians don't behave like them, by the way. So these haters, plain haters, all of them, they hate each other. They don't like each other. They disagree with each other. They attack each other. But when it comes to Islam, they are all united.

00:38:48--> 00:38:51

Okay, back saboom Jamil

00:38:52--> 00:38:56

Sabu. Gemini and Apollo boom Shaka, as the Quran says.

00:38:57--> 00:39:37

It appears so that they are united but their hearts are all divided. Okay, the Quran beautifully. puts it down as someone who talks about him Jimmy on what kulu boom Shaka. Okay. It apparently they are united. But in reality, their hearts all this you know, they don't. They don't agree with each other. Actually. This is the Brotherhood of money. This is a brotherhood of money. And they attack Islam, the poverty of Islam for the sake of money, and not so much for fame, not necessarily for fame because some of these people they look like drug addicts. They don't even look normal. And they're not normal. By the way. They are depressed. They on drugs. Some of them are psychopaths.

00:39:37--> 00:39:47

They have very funny lifestyles. Some of them actually justify insist. they justify father having sex with the son.

00:39:49--> 00:39:59

Brother having sex with the sister they justified. Some of them say it's okay. If you can remove the harm. If you can use contraceptions you can do that people

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

Who are attacking Islam? No wonder you're attacking Islam. We're not surprised. No wonder these nasty people are united in one brotherhood, and that Brotherhood is the Brotherhood of the dollar bill, the dollar bill. So coming back to my topic, violence of the profit, they always paint the profits on the nice of them as some kind of bloodthirsty

00:40:23--> 00:40:30

person. But if you read about the profits of wars, his battles, over 90% of them are defensive.

00:40:31--> 00:41:15

And by liberal standards, he had the right to preach his religion. Why was it being fought? Why was he being fought liberals should be the last liberals should be the last people to attack the prophet of Islam for fighting wars and battles, because he was simply defending his right to preach. And people around him were conspiring against him to kill him, so that he doesn't breach use preaching in Makkah. They were hunting him. He went to Medina, they never left him. They never left him alone. The Romans started to conspire against him, the Persian Emperor became hostile. So he was fighting for survival. So the prophet of Islam, over 90% of his battles are defensive. And fewer, were for

00:41:15--> 00:42:01

pre emptive reasons. He sent out expeditions so that he can actually show the enemy his sprint. Okay, like the Quran clearly states in chapter eight verse 60, why do long masataka men who are merely battle fail to a boon to be or do Allahu wa do welcome that strengthen yourself, strengthen yourself with steeds with horses, okay? And so that you can show your strength and scare your enemies who are who are planning to attack you. This was a command to the Prophet and his companions, okay? That you need to prepare yourselves. Okay, because your enemies are already planning to attack you. So you need to prepare yourself and show your strength to them so that they

00:42:01--> 00:42:16

don't have the courage to attack you. For the progress of Solomon's violence was for a just cause. He was trying to start the suggest order, which he later on did and what happened when he did what happened when Persia was conquered.

00:42:17--> 00:42:36

When Rome, Roman territory was conquered a lot of Roman territory, the entire land of the avant, or greater below the Sham, current day, collectively, the land of Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Palestine was taken by the Muslims

00:42:37--> 00:42:41

in the 636 and 3637. See,

00:42:42--> 00:43:08

soon after the Prophet had passed away Salalah Selim in the time of American football, all of these territories were taken from the Romans. Why were they doing it? Because there was a lot of oppression taking place in these lands. Okay, this is where my next point comes in. My next point is how did the Prophet treat non Muslims when he had gained power over them? Did he become a tyrant? Did he start to kill them? Did he start to oppress them?

00:43:11--> 00:43:14

Brothers and sisters, those of you who are still watching

00:43:16--> 00:43:33

Please post your comment questions in the comment section. And I will soon start answering your question please post your questions in the comments section I can see your comments and I will answer your questions in due course inshallah Allah Okay. So

00:43:34--> 00:44:25

now, last point of this particular lecture, how did the Prophet treat the numerous Saudi non Muslims? What was his behavior towards non Muslims, his behavior towards non Muslims varied from people to people from attitude to attitude, for example, those non Muslims who are hostile, the prophet of Islam was told by God Almighty in the Koran to defend himself. Those who fight you fight them, okay, those who drive you out, drive them out, like they have driven you out. So fight them defensively, okay, initially, the Quran tells the prophet of Islam chapter two verse, verses 190 292, when you read these verses, this was the commandment revealed by God to Prophet of Islam,

00:44:25--> 00:44:59

that you are being oppressed, you are being killed, your companions are being tortured, you are being driven out. So now defend yourself. Okay, enough is enough. Defend yourself, those non Muslims who did not attack the Muslims, who were at peace with the Muslims. The Prophet was commanded by God by Allah to be kind to them, to be just to them. And this was the attitude of Islam throughout the history of the Muslim civilization. Where do I get this from? chapter 16 of the Quran Surah 12.

00:45:00--> 00:45:18

Montana circle Montana, Chapter 60 of the Quran. Okay, verse number eight, verse number eight, you read God, Allah subhanaw taala revealed to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that Allah does not forbid you,

00:45:19--> 00:45:51

all Muslim, and primarily the Prophet and his companions. Allah does not forbid you from being kind to those who do not fight you for your religion, and do not drive you out of your homes. Allah does not forbid you from being kind to them. In other words, be kind to them. They do not fight you, they do not drive you out. They're not hostile towards you, be kind to them, be gentle with them. And this was the attitude of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam throughout the history of the Muslim civilization.

00:45:55--> 00:46:41

I am currently working on a book on this very topic, the mercy that Islam was in sha Allah, the book will be published soon. I have been very busy lately, but I am working on the book, inshallah, the book will have a lot more evidence in this regard. So how did the non Muslims get treated? When Muslims arrived in, for example, in Egypt, or in the land of Syria, or blood a sham, for example, or in the land of Persia, there are books written on this topic by a number of different scholars, there are testimonies of Christians and Jews, how they felt protected under the protection of Islam. Some of the minor Christian sects that were facing extinction were protected. They only survived by

00:46:41--> 00:47:22

the protection Islam and Muslims provided for them. Okay. There is one book in particular, I strongly recommend it is by Professor Thomas Arnold, t. w. Arnold, Professor Thomas Walker, Arnold. The book is titled, the preaching of Islam. the preaching of Islam has plenty of evidence in this regard as to how Islam was bred peacefully how Islam was taken to the others. As a message of justice and tranquility. Thomas Arnold has accumulated so much evidence in this book, that it is impossible for an islamophobe to undo it.

00:47:23--> 00:47:38

islamophobes Islam ages can shout from the top of mountains and the top of their voices, they can shout as much as they like, they cannot hide the history of Islam, which will continue to propagate and teach so that people can see the true

00:47:39--> 00:47:59

nature of Muslim treatment of the Jews and Christians. The Jews survived for over 1000 years protected by Muslims in places like London rose in places like Syria, in places like the Middle East, as far as Yemen. They were Jewish people in Iraq,

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

in Yemen, in Morocco, in Tunisia, in Libya, in Egypt, as late as the 1930s. I repeat my brothers and sisters, there were Jewish people living in the Muslim world, in Yemen, in Iraq, in Iran,

00:48:21--> 00:49:16

in Morocco, in Tunisia, in Libya, in Egypt, okay, as as late as the 1930s. What changed after the 1930s lo and behold, the State of Israel was created and that centuries old peace was disrupted. And a lot of the Jewish people, they migrated to the newly created State of Israel, on the land of Palestine, on the land of Palestine. So this is how that centuries old, friendly relationship, peaceful relationship with the Jews flourished. Okay? The Jews throughout the Ottoman Empire, under the meme look at Germany, under the rule of the ubit. under the rule of my ears in Spain, the Jewish people flourished more than anyone else. They had businesses, they had libraries, they created works

00:49:16--> 00:50:00

of great magnitude. They were Jewish points. There were Jewish philosophers like my Montes. Musab in mamoon, Judah Levy, who was appointed in Spain. There were authors and writers writing in places like Egypt, in Yemen. So in Iraq, the oldest Jewish Academy in the world was in Iraq, near Baghdad, Allahu Akbar. So the Jewish people, they flourished throughout the Muslim land. Throughout the history of Islamic civilization. Likewise, Christians, those Christians who are not hostile or not conspiring against the Muslim or did not attack the Muslims, they flourished with the Muslims. And there are many, many, many histories written in this region.

00:50:00--> 00:50:10

One particular book I strongly recommend, which will give you plenty of evidence in this regard is Professor Thomas Walker honors

00:50:11--> 00:50:53

preaching of Islam, you must read that book and there are some modern books as well, which I can inshallah, do a book recommendation for on my YouTube channel. I will be doing book recommendations on my YouTube channel brothers and sisters, keep watching my channel, you will get a lot of good stuff on my channel in the future inshallah inshallah, I will stop now, I have briefly addressed a lot of these points, I hope I have done little justice to them.

00:50:53--> 00:50:53

There might be some questions they already okay there is a lot of Salam Alikum walaikum salam ala Thank you, everyone. Thank you for saying Salaam. Okay. Christians tried to pray prophet of Deuteronomy 18. It was Jesus who is like Moses, but Bible says they did not roll in Israel, any of the prophet like

00:51:32--> 00:51:47

Moses, of course, Deuteronomy 1818 does not refer to Jesus Christ. I have done a debate on this very topic. Please watch my debate with a gentleman in Australia. His name is Samuel green. The debate is titled

00:51:48--> 00:52:01

his Mohammed foretold in the Bible is Mohammed foretold in the Bible, a non Rashid versus Samuel green. in that debate. I addressed that very point quite extensively what the debate okay.

00:52:02--> 00:52:29

Psalm 84 refers to Baca. Absolutely, and that is Mecca. So Psalm 84 also refers to the prophet of Islam the coming of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and we are currently right now on that topic writing a book and the book is titled Abraham fulfilled there are three authors, three co authors, the book will be published very, very soon I have announced it I know many people are waiting for it, it will come out very very soon inshallah.

00:52:31--> 00:52:39
