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

Okay. All right. So we'll start with the summary while people are praying tonight and we'll start. So last week we talked about

00:00:11 --> 00:00:16

Hussein Radi Allahu Allah, and why Hussein or the Allahu, and he initiated that whole

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

quest to establish something. And I think today's introduction will also feed into a context of what we talked about last week. So in Islam, if you remember one of the very first lectures that I gave over here, one of the very, very first lectures that we talked about was the lecture about the five dimensions of Islam. When we talked about that in detail we said that there are five dimensions of Islam in specific you have a Baghdad so in our fifth books, you have something called a Baghdad then you have something called Jean ayat, which is a criminal court. Then you have something called Monaka Heart Sutra family relationship marriage but che all of that, then you have something called

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

more I'm a lot more I'm a lot is basically, our dealings with one another and the last part is called CSR.

00:01:09 --> 00:01:20

CSR or if you want to put it in a different way it is politics and how do Muslims govern their states? How do Muslim manage the entire process?

00:01:22 --> 00:01:27

Hussein Radi Allahu ion of the live in Abbas Abdullah bin Zubayr.

00:01:29 --> 00:01:30

Abdullah bin Omar

00:01:31 --> 00:01:37

and the son of Abu Bakr missing his name, those five individuals they also believed

00:01:39 --> 00:01:41

in a sixth dimension

00:01:42 --> 00:01:46

which was that the dimension of the heat alpha

00:01:47 --> 00:02:33

i eat there is something called the governance system. How do we select the one who is being governed who is going to govern us and that is what I'm rowhome Shura by in our home that there matter is going to be decided with consultation of the elders and they're going to nominate not I want to represent Islam and become the leader rather than Muslims are going to say, in our opinion, this person is the most worthy person of leading us. So a person says that another elder of the community, somebody else and somebody else and somebody else and eventually we select that. So Hussein Radi Allahu Allah and, and I believe in Zubayr.

00:02:34 --> 00:02:55

During the reign of Mao we are the Allah who won. When Hassan Radi Allahu and he decided to step down and the conditions there were four conditions. One of the conditions of the Treaty of the four conditions was that after a while we are the Allah who won the matter is going to be amerihome Shu Rabina home

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

the matter is going to be that their decisions are going to be made in terms of who is going to govern Shura as a consultation and people are going to have a consultation and they're going to decide why we have the allaahu been accepted.

00:03:19 --> 00:03:20

He accepted that

00:03:21 --> 00:03:25

after having been appointed duly as a Khalifa he accepted it

00:03:28 --> 00:03:30

but during the lifetime

00:03:31 --> 00:03:38

but she didn't know a man or the Allah Who and he came to me while we are on the hola Hawaiian and he said that the senior Sahabas are dying.

00:03:40 --> 00:03:45

This is high time that we appoint somebody to be your successor.

00:03:46 --> 00:04:11

But that successor should be trained by those who Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has trained are either Sahabas that were trained at the hands of Rasul Allah, the elders Sahabas so obviously the five people they are blatantly they came out and they said we are not going to accept that as time went on while we are the Allah who I left them he didn't touch the five

00:04:13 --> 00:04:29

the three Abdullah is in her Sandra the Allahu Akbar and Abu Bakr has a son who passed away in the first two years after he made that decision. So why we as rain was very pleased peaceful rain, nobody no dissent, there was a lot of prosperity. And he was a very just ruler.

00:04:32 --> 00:04:52

After she'd even Norman's suggestion, what are we gonna do? Allah has changed his opinion and he said, Yeah, you know what that treaty was for those days. We definitely need to appoint it as either my son who seems to be the most qualified person, and we will appoint him and his appointment is not just a random appointment, we will train him so that he is ready.

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

All of the Sahabas

00:04:56 --> 00:04:58

they came out and they said we are not going to accept it.

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

But within the last two, three years of my we are the Allahu Andreen. Some of those habits changed their opinions. Abdullah ibn Abbas Abdullah bin Omar, they said, Man, we've had so much bloodshed or over 100,000 Sahaba and taglines have been killed in the last fitna. We don't want another fitna.

00:05:19 --> 00:05:23

So they said the sixth dimension of Islam, it's okay.

00:05:24 --> 00:05:42

As long as the person leading us is a person who is pious and he's, you know, trustworthy, we will submit Abdullah even Zubayr and Hussein Radi Allahu Anh, they both said, There's no way we're going to accept it that that's a sixth dimension of our Shediac.

00:05:43 --> 00:05:49

Khilafah is how we are different from every other nation.

00:05:51 --> 00:05:59

No other religion has a governance system of how the nation is governed within the religion.

00:06:00 --> 00:06:21

So we cannot get rid of the Khilafah. As a matter of fact, if you go and listen to my hotbar, the five things that the colonizers did, the five things that the colonizers did to us, all of us come from lands that were colonized. The five things one of the first things that did is they changed our version and understanding of Khilafah.

00:06:23 --> 00:06:24

So nobody talks about it anymore.

00:06:26 --> 00:06:33

I remember when I was a kid, there was this this way, the unity of OMA, the OMA is gonna be united one day people used to talk about that.

00:06:34 --> 00:06:44

Those of you that are like 40s and 50s, you notice when we used to talk about it, there used to be nasheeds about it, that unity one day we will be united, that whole narrative is gone.

00:06:45 --> 00:06:49

So that's what the colonizers did to us through the process of education.

00:06:50 --> 00:06:56

So coming back, and I just want to take a tangent over here because since we're talking about it, and this is history, we need to know that

00:06:57 --> 00:07:03

so say in Radi Allahu Allah and Abdullah even Zubayr we're not the only ones who tried to bring back the Khilafah.

00:07:04 --> 00:07:05


00:07:07 --> 00:07:13

there were multiple upends attempts from the time of yours EADS ascent

00:07:14 --> 00:07:15


00:07:17 --> 00:07:18

90 Hijiri.

00:07:20 --> 00:07:25

Multiple evens the grandson of Hussein Rhodiola one himself

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


00:07:30 --> 00:07:38

last January silver cameras mashallah Nambi Batavia? No discrepancies, brother was Jody

00:07:39 --> 00:07:45

we're all going to pretend that all of us are more as we all stand up and then one buddies one person slide

00:07:46 --> 00:07:47

a stop for law

00:07:49 --> 00:07:50

just kidding rather

00:07:51 --> 00:07:52


00:07:53 --> 00:08:03

Okay, so coming back there were multiple attempts attempts and in the 90 Hijiri remember the two tribes when OMA yep, I know he sham

00:08:04 --> 00:08:08

okay, but only Sham is like Hmm

00:08:09 --> 00:08:12

you know what, let's let's forget about Rafa let's move towards kingdom.

00:08:14 --> 00:08:57

And that's where the rise of abassi dynasty began. Because they said, it offers not coming back. So let's actually go back and build on kingship, and they got rid of that Khilafah element, ie we appoint ourselves because of us being from Bologna Sham, and we have the right st credibility, and they were able to build that entire dynasty and from there onwards, many of the philosophers they were still called believers, but they were not appointed as for the time of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam rather they were inherited ie you it was passed down I II, the son of the son of the son or the uncle or within the family, the royal lineage. Okay.

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

Total random fact I was reading an article today

00:09:04 --> 00:09:11

44 presidents of America, if you were to trace their lineages, they all go back to one person.

00:09:13 --> 00:09:51

Total random fact. I don't know why I bring that up. But it was something interesting I read today. Now coming back to today's topic. So the sixth dimension is what he was saying or the Allahu Anhu was fighting for what Abdullah ibn zubaid fought for and many other people that came to Aberdeen after they fought for that. Now this happens I'm going to take you back to the point of meeting of foreigners duck the famous poet for us duck meets Hussein Radi Allahu Hussain or the Allahu and says, What do you think of my opinion of going to Kufa he says, a halal Kufa the people of Kufa Unova Hallmark their hearts are with you want so you for whom I've been OH MAN Yeah, but the swords

00:09:51 --> 00:09:55

are with binary Romania I either not going to stand for you in the war.

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

So at that point,

00:10:02 --> 00:10:06

Sandra the Allah one still decides and he carries on and he moves on.

00:10:07 --> 00:10:13

And he goes, at this time, there were events that were taking place in Kufa that we need to know.

00:10:15 --> 00:10:23

So few days before Hajj before Arafa a fatwa was passed for the execution of Hussein Rhodiola one.

00:10:25 --> 00:10:30

So he has he passed a fatwa that he is a hottie G

00:10:31 --> 00:10:54

and he should be killed wherever he's found. I grabbed him and bring him to the authorities and he's going to be executed. As soon as for Sandra the Allah one finds that fatwa, remember in which time is it hard to find for saying, everybody knows we're saying no, the Allah one. So he decides to leave Makkah in the most sacred time and leaves for Kufa.

00:10:55 --> 00:11:14

At the same time in Kufa, Muslim even Athlean, he is working with this person by the name of Hani Ibn Ottawa. Now, for us to understand the value of these powerful figures from different tribes. contextualize it today's lobby groups.

00:11:15 --> 00:11:28

So contextualize it today's lobby groups, you have this, you have C pack and pack a pack all of these, what are these, every President has to go and give a speech to one of them. This is the third system.

00:11:29 --> 00:11:32

You have the governance but there's a third system in place.

00:11:33 --> 00:11:42

These are people who are less regulated, but they can influence decisions at the regulatory level for their benefit.

00:11:43 --> 00:11:45

These are lobby groups, right?

00:11:46 --> 00:12:10

And there's lots of lobby groups in America, Canada, everywhere and these tribes and these leaders that would hang out with the leaders of that time. They were basically like aristocrats or they were lobby groups. They had an entire army behind and on their one finger, the ruler could be taken away but they had to balance the power. So honey, even Ottawa

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

he was funding the entire campaign of her saying are the allawah

00:12:17 --> 00:12:43

and he said yes, there is a regulatory process but we don't accept even Ziad he was the person or weighed Allah had been Ziad, I'll call him even Ziad from now on. Even Ziad was appointed his father, prior to the present predecessor to him was also an appointed governor of Kufa at that time, and even Ziad was known as an absolute shrewd, ruthless person.

00:12:44 --> 00:13:02

Stories of even Ziad, if you read, there's a book it talks about the stories of fibbin Ziad and his McTell and how he died. That's not the point for today, but one of the glimpses of that he made an ordinance at the beginning of the Hijjah that he heard him saying or the Allah who is on his way,

00:13:03 --> 00:13:11

and he said that I had the original bait that salata lorisha Nobody can be outside in their houses after salata, Alicia,

00:13:12 --> 00:13:35

Nobody's allowed to do that. Once upon a time, an old man, an old person, he was coming from after salata, Asia, and even Ziad was walking in the streets. And he says, from urbik, why are you outside? Didn't I tell you we're not supposed to be outside. So, the farmer said to

00:13:36 --> 00:13:41

INSEAD I was outside with my cattle with the hurt I got late.

00:13:43 --> 00:13:45

And then he said, It means yard.

00:13:46 --> 00:13:48

It is better for you to enter Jannah

00:13:50 --> 00:13:58

than to enter Kufa and took out his sword and chop the person's neck off. That's just one of the numerous examples of Ibn zeod

00:13:59 --> 00:14:10

Okay, if you read the history of human Ziad, you will be surprised how he was still appointed because he was a ruthless tyrant who knew how to get things done. He didn't care about the casualties at all.

00:14:12 --> 00:14:55

And we will see that at the McTell at the Makoto Zane. Now coming back to Evans yard, even Ziad now passes an ordinance and he says that anybody who's passed so even Ziad recognizes that honey even Ottawa is funding the campaign and they need to figure out how do we expose honey even Ottawa who is sitting in my group, he's in my core group, but I need to expose him. So he finds an old beggar dresses that beggar up with a rich merchant look and tells the beggar that tell them that you are a merchant from Sham from levant area, Lebanon, Syria in those areas, and how about you try to infiltrate their ranks

00:14:57 --> 00:14:59

and within two days, this beggar priests

00:15:00 --> 00:15:06

Anything himself to be a very rich person. He was able to infiltrate into the ranks, sorry,

00:15:07 --> 00:15:23

iPads as it can recognize my face. I don't know what happened. Okay, sorry. So within few days he was able to penetrate into the ranks of honey in Ottawa and they were able to expose honey even Ottawa. Even Ziad comes in arrests, honey, even Ottawa for treason.

00:15:25 --> 00:15:32

I remember I told you these people are really powerful, the tribe of Hani even Ottawa, they hear about it.

00:15:35 --> 00:15:42

And they bring an army of 4000 people and surround the palates of humans yet. They say that if you lay your hand on,

00:15:43 --> 00:15:45

honey, even Ottawa,

00:15:46 --> 00:15:47

we will take you down.

00:15:49 --> 00:16:01

Now, honey, even Ziad locked himself off in the castle, and he didn't have time. So before that message, he had already slashed honey, even Ottawa on the lips and on the eyebrow with the sword.

00:16:03 --> 00:16:14

So the tribes sent a call the very famous judge, he goes in, he checks on honey, even Ottawa and he comes back and tells the tribe that everything is good. And then the matter settles down.

00:16:15 --> 00:16:16


00:16:18 --> 00:16:21

even Ziad was very smart.

00:16:22 --> 00:16:28

He actually recognized that Muslim even Athene and this entire plan is about to explode anytime.

00:16:29 --> 00:16:34

Now what's a very famous fast that takes place in the ledger.

00:16:37 --> 00:16:47

The fast off out of the fast of alpha. So he says, I'm going to use the fast of alpha as an excuse for me to invite everyone.

00:16:48 --> 00:16:55

It's an excuse for me to write all the tribes over. I will invite all the tribes over and

00:16:56 --> 00:17:07

once they're here I can control the narrative. So he invites all the tribes far and wide. Everybody comes honey, even Ottawa is not released.

00:17:08 --> 00:17:19

He said I'm keeping him until Iftar. And after Iftar or lead him, the entire tribe heads, different key important figures they arrive in the palace, everything is surrounded.

00:17:22 --> 00:17:24

And then on the time of Iftar.

00:17:27 --> 00:17:32

Muslim Ibn athin he makes a mistake.

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

Jose Radi Allahu Allah had clearly given instruction to Muslim Urbinati Lata Hara

00:17:43 --> 00:17:46

do not mobilize the army

00:17:48 --> 00:17:49

until I arrive,

00:17:50 --> 00:17:52

even if you are killed.

00:17:54 --> 00:17:56

Do not mobilize the army.

00:17:58 --> 00:18:12

Now most of them even 18 out of his own decision, and he is reading the political room at that time. He reads the room and he says it is in our best interest that we actually mobilize the army.

00:18:13 --> 00:18:18

So there was a very famous statement that they would say who remembers that statement? If anybody knows.

00:18:20 --> 00:18:25

There was a statement which was called Yarraman sore, omit an IT

00:18:26 --> 00:18:40

Yamen sore omit omit that was the secret code. If that code was on the street, it meant we all need to mobilize within hours before the star before sunset.

00:18:41 --> 00:18:50

On the day of alpha, he was able to gather an entire army of four to 5000 people and surround even Ziad castle.

00:18:51 --> 00:18:56

And remember those people that came for Iftar he held every single one of them hostage.

00:18:57 --> 00:19:00

He closed the gates of the palace. And he said,

00:19:01 --> 00:19:13

each one of you will be killed unless each one of you goes out to the corner to the balcony, and you convince your tribe people that are supporting Muslim we've been asking to leave.

00:19:15 --> 00:19:20

So he used more emotional blackmail. And it is actually mentioned that he sent women first.

00:19:21 --> 00:19:30

So they were able to have a much more emotional reaction to the scene. Then he sent the kids and then he sent the adults the men

00:19:32 --> 00:19:42

so mostly Maven, teens army went from 4000 within few hours before Maghrib down 240 men.

00:19:43 --> 00:19:44

Everybody left.

00:19:45 --> 00:19:46

And as it was time for a mother in

00:19:48 --> 00:19:49

the army said Let them be

00:19:50 --> 00:19:52

we can manage 140 people.

00:19:53 --> 00:19:59

Most of them we have an athlete retreated and on his retreat they found a masjid that Masjid is still found in Kufa.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:12

It's called the masjid of Muslim women appeal. They retreated in that masjid and it came time for a mockery of everybody he told them go and make will do. They made will do after will do when they come for Muslim Salah there's only 20 People left

00:20:14 --> 00:20:21

when he starts a Salah, and he says a Salam aleikum, wa Rahmatullah salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah. How many people do you think are left?

00:20:23 --> 00:20:23


00:20:25 --> 00:20:26

And he's left alone.

00:20:28 --> 00:20:50

So Muslim, even 18 has no choice left. Absolutely, but to retreat and find refuge and he finds an old woman, and he goes into that house quietly, and asks the woman to give refuge the woman agrees. But the son of the woman was the guard at the Palace of INSEAD.

00:20:53 --> 00:21:27

And then he quietly went and told even Ziad that bring your army. Most of it is with my mom in the house. He's in the guest quarters, and he's staying with us. They arrested mostly within our team, and there's varying different reports that whether they killed him on the ninth on the 10th or the 11th, it really doesn't matter, but the manner in which he was killed, they found the tallest building at that time, which was one of the minarets of the masjid in Kufa, and they took him all the way to the top of that minaret tied his hands and his feet and they pushed him off

00:21:28 --> 00:21:38

that minaret, the next day honey, even Ottawa, the aristocrat that was supporting he was also killed in the similar manner

00:21:39 --> 00:21:41

right before the killing of

00:21:42 --> 00:21:51

right before the killing of Muslims even after the horrible even Ziad should have been Ziad yard, he meets

00:21:52 --> 00:22:05

mostly if you have an athlete and he says lad Tab key Don't cry for a numb if you miss look, the one the type of things you have done the treason you have done, has mostly you This is how you're going to be treated.

00:22:08 --> 00:22:16

He says no ABCYa enough. See, I'm not crying you're on point in my matter for rarely I have given my life many many months ago in the cause of her saying

00:22:17 --> 00:22:31

I cry because the message will not reach the family of Hussein and either Antara Junoon fika Hiren if you are a man you have an ounce of good in you.

00:22:33 --> 00:23:15

Then do a fever on my behalf and send a message to Hussain Al Kufa, Kufa la Ufa who fight did not honor their promises. So mostly we have an athlete obviously he hears about, he is hoping that her Ibanez is going to be the one who's gonna go and take this message. Hold it beneath honors and he says a gel of Allah. I mean, at least that much I still I mean, it's the grandson of Prophet sallahu wa sallam that much I'll still do like I am still part of you as even his army but this much honor I have. So he sends a message. The message does not arrive Hussein or the Allah one until Karbala

00:23:16 --> 00:23:18

which is too late. Now,

00:23:20 --> 00:23:23

shoulder orbignya XID now is appointed.

00:23:24 --> 00:23:25

And he has IID.

00:23:28 --> 00:23:42

from Egypt, where he's governing, and sham he sends another person and this is a point that I want to take a tangent on. He sends a person by the name of Omar even sad.

00:23:44 --> 00:23:45

Who do you think his father is?

00:23:48 --> 00:23:50

Omar even sad.

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

Sad even have you with us? What was the status of Saturday the interviewer cos?

00:23:59 --> 00:24:04

What was his status? He was given what he was promised. Jana.

00:24:05 --> 00:24:07

He was from his Jana. Okay.

00:24:08 --> 00:24:26

And the Athena of Alison, our Jana, as Muslims, Sunni Muslims are al Qaeda is that the Sahaba law yet? There are men whom Kabaya Sahabas will never commit major sins. It's impossible for Sahaba to commit major sins.

00:24:27 --> 00:24:38

Okay. I either not going to willfully knowingly that this is haram. They're going to commit kabaah air in terms of that level of material and * and Zina and these things.

00:24:41 --> 00:24:52

And their sons do not hold that same status, as it's gonna be very evident for us from Ahmed ibn Assad. Second point is

00:24:54 --> 00:24:55

none of us

00:24:57 --> 00:24:59

can claim that we are better fathers than Saudi Arabia.

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


00:25:02 --> 00:25:03

he was granted Janna,

00:25:04 --> 00:25:19

whatever he had in his email and he was at a level that none of us will be able to achieve. But also the law testified for their mom. Yet, despite that he was from one of the top 10 men to exist on this earth.

00:25:21 --> 00:25:24

His son turned out to be the way he turned out.

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

Which also tells us that our job as parents is to do most of what we can in terms of therapy for the kids.

00:25:33 --> 00:25:35

If new Halle Salem

00:25:36 --> 00:25:38

sad, even Abby work Waqqas

00:25:40 --> 00:25:45

I mean, the things that he is going to do in the battlefield are not small things, his son,

00:25:46 --> 00:25:51

but again, he is the son of Saudi Arabia because he was in the house

00:25:57 --> 00:26:03

he was in the house. He grew up in the house of a person who was granted Jana

00:26:04 --> 00:26:07

who was the epitome of his practice of Islam.

00:26:09 --> 00:26:14

Yet, you know, his son ends up being whatever, you know, whatever actions that he did,

00:26:15 --> 00:26:42

coming back, you had the example of Maria and his son Yazeed. We're going to come to him right now. Okay, so I'm gonna have an Assad has now appointed as the Army General with an army of 4000 people to meet her Sandra the Allahu and Karbala, hood or even New Year's Eve arrives there. There's varying different impound accounts of whether he arrives with 900 to 1000 armies Maya Philip, there's no big deal about that. He comes in he gives her saying the Allah one choice.

00:26:43 --> 00:26:46

He says I've been commanded to do two things.

00:26:47 --> 00:26:49

You cannot go back

00:26:50 --> 00:26:51

because you're going to come back with a bigger army

00:26:53 --> 00:27:19

and you cannot enter Kufa but I have not been asked or prevented to do anything else. I II, don't go here. Don't go here in between the lines go wherever. But not these two places. So as long as you don't go here, I won't be blatantly breaking a law that text. Don't let him come to Cuba. Don't let him go back to Morocco. Okay, I didn't do that.

00:27:21 --> 00:27:23

If he wants to go somewhere else, you're free.

00:27:24 --> 00:27:26

So Hussain radi, Allahu Anhu says

00:27:27 --> 00:27:30

mercy Allah tuna. Illa Kufa,

00:27:31 --> 00:27:45

Our destination is over, we're not changing. This is where we came for. We're headed to Kufa then he says, I will stay with you the entire time, until I have given other commands. Now, I want you to understand this. Remember?

00:27:46 --> 00:27:49

Remember the five dimensions and I talked about it for a reason.

00:27:50 --> 00:27:51

These Sahabas

00:27:53 --> 00:28:05

they had no issues in those five dimensions, these gatherings. They're fragile. I mean, you could not be part of the Yazidi army, if you didn't pray Fudger, in Salah in the masjid.

00:28:06 --> 00:28:10

Many of us will make it even in yesterday's army.

00:28:11 --> 00:28:42

I want you to understand that the religious barrier you have to cross was a very high barrier. So these were people who had their a BA dot, there's their, their marmelade. Their Monaka had their their worship, their dealings with people, their marital affairs, their jenaya, they did not commit major crimes. They understood the CSR, they understood the political structure of the governance on all of these things. They probably scored a very high score,

00:28:43 --> 00:28:47

the issue they were having was on the sixth dimension.

00:28:49 --> 00:29:06

So even despite the fact that there are two ends, and there are two enemies, even because even they were at that ends at Fajr time, Hussein where the Allahu Allah will come with his 70 people, and the entire army of 900 to 1000 people will join for federal law

00:29:07 --> 00:29:10

behind her saying they would pray with him.

00:29:12 --> 00:29:20

And it was mentioned that they prayed for multiple days, every Salah behind are saying and he would make dua and he would they would say I mean

00:29:21 --> 00:29:23

and then they would pick up their swords

00:29:25 --> 00:29:26

and they would go to their camps.

00:29:27 --> 00:29:51

Which also tells us that when it comes to our Ibadat when it comes to armorama that when it comes to our worships our fifth key differences our uppity differences should not I mean they had a political they were at war, but didn't allow that to divide them in terms of in front of Allah subhanaw taala they prayed together.

00:29:52 --> 00:29:59

So the unity in front of Allah you can have a difference but when it comes to the matter of Allah subhanaw taala we all unite

00:30:00 --> 00:30:05

And we stand and that's what we learn here. Very powerful. Then urban sad he comes.

00:30:06 --> 00:30:10

And the arrival over urban sad changes the dynamics of the entire scene.

00:30:12 --> 00:30:14

Almost even sad calls for a meeting

00:30:15 --> 00:30:17

with her saying immediately

00:30:19 --> 00:30:24

Sandra the Allahu Allah and he comes here to Ibanez Heath comes and they all sit

00:30:26 --> 00:30:30

and out of respect for Hussein Radi Allahu Allah and

00:30:31 --> 00:30:33

he says to her saying,

00:30:34 --> 00:30:35

what are your options?

00:30:36 --> 00:30:51

Like what give us something and we will try to see if it's workable. He said, Mr. McComb, Salah Sathyaraj you have three choices that you can give me. I would like that if I can do any of these three things. I'll be pleased. Number one.

00:30:53 --> 00:30:59

Let me go back not to Makkah, but to Yemen.

00:31:01 --> 00:31:12

I'll go in some other Muslim land. And I will join an army some other Muslim army that is fighting for the sake of Allah and I will become a Shaheed in the in this in the way of Allah subhanaw taala

00:31:13 --> 00:31:16

now number two is you bring even Ziad

00:31:18 --> 00:31:25

bring him out you want me to go to Kufa no problem bring him out and let's have a conversation like men Let's settle this like a man

00:31:26 --> 00:31:29

number three, let me go back to yes eat

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

and I can I tell ya, I will not settle the difference which is directly

00:31:39 --> 00:31:43

the command from you as it comes that at no cost?

00:31:44 --> 00:31:46

Can he move from Karbala

00:31:47 --> 00:31:49

now it's changed

00:31:50 --> 00:32:01

and also it is told that you have to create constrict meant ie start making things difficult for for them. So the first thing I'm going to bring aside

00:32:02 --> 00:32:15

did is he prevented the family of Rasulullah the 70 people that were there, there was a water river that was running by he came and he blocked the access to the river for the family.

00:32:17 --> 00:32:22

So, imagine for the last two days of their lives they had no sip of water.

00:32:24 --> 00:32:26

So first, I mean can you imagine

00:32:27 --> 00:32:31

like I want you to understand this this is not any family.

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

These are the directly this is like the grandson of Prophet sallallahu Sallam and somebody to make this decision

00:32:40 --> 00:32:42

that your basic

00:32:43 --> 00:32:48

here human right of drinking water that is not even accessible to the family of Rasul Allah.

00:32:50 --> 00:32:55

So at that point, for saying that the Allahu Anhu realized that it is going to be

00:32:56 --> 00:33:00

a fight, there was a guy by the name of hammer Z joson.

00:33:01 --> 00:33:02

I'm, um,

00:33:03 --> 00:33:32

you know, and this is, you know, it has mentioned about him, you know, this was the person who shot on the day of Muharram when the battle was about to take place. They went and attacked everybody other than her same. Everybody was scared. But when the battle started, I'm redness, zeige ocean, he took an arrow and he shot and he looked at the entire army and he said, be witness, I was the first one to shoot the arrow in this battle. I initiated the battle.

00:33:34 --> 00:33:41

Then, when the time came, and everybody had died, and you only had two people left.

00:33:43 --> 00:33:49

And it was a time where Hussein Radi Allahu Han had surrendered. They said now we will attack Hussein.

00:33:50 --> 00:34:18

But nobody had the courage to hit him in our sunnah books that has mentioned that when his body was found it had 38 traumatic injuries, which means that the injury if one of us got one of those injuries, you would call 911. And you would end up in the hospital and ICU to make sure that you can recover. He had a 38 of such injuries, which meant that they were shooting at him but they were not shooting to kill him.

00:34:20 --> 00:34:33

So they would shoot to make sure to cut his biceps, the pectoral fins, whatever, like whatever they could, but not to kill him. Subhanallah like this is what they were doing. Until

00:34:36 --> 00:34:39

he realized that this is his last moments.

00:34:40 --> 00:34:49

And he he told I'm redness salad inside, and AMRAAMs Xhosa and he said, All I want is I want to hold my son Abdullah

00:34:51 --> 00:34:53

Abdullah bin Hussein. I just want to hold him in my hands

00:34:54 --> 00:34:55

before I die.

00:34:57 --> 00:34:59

And in our books mentioned even Ethier he says

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

Is that I'm going to ocean he looked at me inside. And he said, Do you want to know what type of a marksman I am like, you want to know how good of an archery I have specific I have like very, very peculiar skill

00:35:15 --> 00:35:20

off shooting arrows in a way that I can kill one and not the other.

00:35:22 --> 00:35:36

So I'm gonna have inside says, show me what you have. He said when Hussein is going to study Allah who is going to lift up the law, I watch, I will shoot an arrow through the Adam's apple of his son without killing Hussein.

00:35:38 --> 00:35:46

ajeeb Subhan Allah, I mean, the if you read our books, this is scary stuff, how somebody can enjoy

00:35:47 --> 00:35:51

the absolute killing of prophets and serums great grandson

00:35:53 --> 00:36:12

and enjoy that and tell and boast about it. And he shoots that arrow. And the arrow literally misses her saying, and goes through the Adam's apple, and the blood was oozing. And as the blood was coming out in the hands of her saying that the Allahu and he's not the Allah who I looked up in the sky, and he said, Oh Allah,

00:36:13 --> 00:36:16

you are the only one that can take revenge from them now.

00:36:17 --> 00:36:20

No one is left in this earth that will support me.

00:36:22 --> 00:36:55

And then his McTell, his killing the way he was killed, there are numerous reports about that. And the reason I'm not going to mention any one, because there's so many of them. And again, it's not even worthy of mentioning, because it's our the Son of God, it's the grandson of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and his that death is not something that we should even enjoy as a story. Hence, I'm not going to mention those details. They're available if you want to learn more about them. Now, I want to talk about a tension over here, which is necessary for us to understand.

00:36:56 --> 00:37:02

And that tension has to do with more how we are the Allaha. I'm sorry, that tension has to do with Yazeed.

00:37:04 --> 00:37:09

And I'm hoping that I'm able to explain this in a in a very balanced manner.

00:37:10 --> 00:37:14

So about tsp within the Sunni

00:37:15 --> 00:37:18

books, classical,

00:37:19 --> 00:37:40

you're going back to TAFTA Zanni, even Ethier you know, Albula, three, like you're going back to our our historians, there are very few one or two in one extreme, and one or two in the other extreme, and what are these extremes? You have one extreme that says that he was not even a Muslim?

00:37:41 --> 00:37:46

Because IED because of his actions, we cannot even say that this person was a Muslim.

00:37:47 --> 00:37:52

There's an extreme that says that and the other extreme over here,

00:37:54 --> 00:37:59

which is very rare is that yes, it has absolutely no

00:38:00 --> 00:38:02

part whatsoever in this.

00:38:03 --> 00:38:09

Rather he there are people who have actually written books in fugu, Ilyas Eid,

00:38:11 --> 00:38:43

the benefits of yours eat, as he poetry has been written about them. So again, these books are there. And we need to know this, these are two extremes. Now, the vast majority of our student scholars they exist in the spectrum, right, you have the bell curve, and you've got those extremities, the core of the bell curve, is you have the centrist opinion, you have the opinion of him holding a position of responsibility. And then you have the other opinions and let me go through that. So you have no opinion, such as

00:38:44 --> 00:38:49

some very strong scholars like knowing and stuff they say that you know, this person should be cursed.

00:38:50 --> 00:38:51

They're very open about it.

00:38:53 --> 00:38:55

Fit I know who you learn,

00:38:56 --> 00:39:07

his feral should should be cursed. Now there are others they go to this extent that No, no not not cursed his action, but we should even curse the individual.

00:39:08 --> 00:39:10

Then you have people in the middle

00:39:11 --> 00:39:21

such as Imam Ghazali who says that we shouldn't curse anybody, but we cannot cannot at any cost absolve Yazeed of this.

00:39:22 --> 00:39:30

There is numerous evidences passed to this incident. That also tell us that he was not a person

00:39:32 --> 00:39:52

that you can say that he had nothing to do in specific when the head of when the head of say in Radi Allahu Anh was taken on a spear to his Eid. He had a stick. And it has mentioned even as he mentioned that he had a stick and he pointed to the lips of the stick. And he said, What are you going to do to me now?

00:39:55 --> 00:39:59

To that there was an old Sahabi that was still alive, he said laughter

00:40:00 --> 00:40:12

If I had I don't do this for a new era it rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you cannot be new Heidi he Shephard, I saw a prophet of Allah, he used to kiss these lips do not do this.

00:40:16 --> 00:41:02

So that's the opinion of the centers that we don't curse, then you have the opinion of Lucy, and then you have the opinion of even Tamia. And these mainstream, which is the mainstream opinion today, unfortunately, that has become mainstream, which is that yes, he was a pious person. And we cannot hold, he was a he, you know, you know, you he was disconnected from those events, you cannot attribute those events to him. Now, he was just like any other king. And obviously, he went after a person who went against his kingdom, which is part of our shutting out that you cannot go against the Khalifa.

00:41:03 --> 00:41:09

And this opinion of him and the recent scholars became really prominent for two reasons.

00:41:10 --> 00:41:53

One within the Middle East and the Dow of the last 5030 3040 years, the extreme Salafi Dawa, they promoted this because they needed it for their political stability in their countries, then it doesn't matter how bad your ruler is, you can't go against him. So they had to make this opinion mainstream. And that's why this opinion became published translated in English. If you look at Islam, QA and all those, those photographers that are there, it's not just a there's an entire political spectrum that's happening behind they needed this opinion to be mainstream for a political reason of their own. And then to put yours in a pedestal you have shirtless man homies, you know,

00:41:53 --> 00:42:14

respect for all these colors, these Arab scholars, but you have legend, Dima, of Serbia of Kuwait, all of these councils have given this that because he was okay. And we should not say anything bad about us. That was not the mainstream Sunni opinion throughout history. The mainstream Sunni opinion was a

00:42:15 --> 00:42:32

lie. No, Hey, boo, we don't love him. Even I'm not even humble. He was, you know, the one of the four schools when his son Abdullah, even Ahmed asked him, masa Kulu Yabba. Taffy, he has it what do you say about the matter of years eve?

00:42:33 --> 00:42:36

And what do you say about the person that loves him?

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

So he said,

00:42:41 --> 00:42:43

Is there anybody that can love Gezi

00:42:46 --> 00:42:53

and that's the mainstream Sunni opinion. We do not love him. We do not absolve him of any of this.

00:42:54 --> 00:43:07

There is enough evidence that he fully was aware of that. The mere appointment and removal of a gentle governor and appointing a tyrant governor that had history

00:43:08 --> 00:43:30

of killing and brutal killing cannot be seen as a benign act. Not only that, after they were done from here, what's the next place if you remember the massacre of Hera the three days of Medina where he said to them Go and kill and * as many women as you want for three days. Last Alec there's nothing against you. After three days just leave Medina.

00:43:32 --> 00:43:43

This is in our history books who did this even Ziad then he went and he, he he hit GABA with the catapult and damage the entire Kaaba.

00:43:44 --> 00:43:57

This has been Ziad read our history. So the mainstream Sunni opinion is that we do not love him. He we do not absolve him of this mistake. He is as responsible as anyone.

00:43:58 --> 00:44:04

And we curse the action but not the individual. And that was the mainstream opinion.

00:44:05 --> 00:44:12

Right, which is the variety in the mainstream Sunni scholars. And that's where we are unfortunately, the other opinion has become mainstream.

00:44:13 --> 00:44:18

And that you know, that has to be changed. I'm waiting for you guys to give me a

00:44:20 --> 00:44:24

hug. Now they're ready. They're already putting food which is their

00:44:26 --> 00:44:30

brother, I see pizza directly when he talks. I can smell pizza from here

00:44:32 --> 00:44:33

plays by

00:44:34 --> 00:44:35

how much time good

00:44:38 --> 00:44:48

he's saying thumbs the guy behind you saying five minutes. So what does that mean? Good. Okay. All right. So before everybody gets up to two important things.

00:44:49 --> 00:44:59

So on the long weekend, we have Imam Tom coming inshallah the flyers will be coming out either on the weekend or Monday. Imam Tom. He works with Yaqeen

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

And he is really good friend. I ran into him in Toronto in one of the visits. I met him once. And then you know, we started communicating and he's a convert very, very well versed with understanding of the West. Very well read, he is going to be coming on the September 1 weekend, he is going to be conducting the family night. And his topic is going to be Musa the model of fatherhood.

00:45:29 --> 00:45:39

So it's going to be targeted the fathers but also the mothers for them to raise their sons like that. He's going to be with us for the weekend. So he has a hotbar and then he's going to have

00:45:40 --> 00:45:44

a lecture, family night lecture. Then Sunday morning, he has

00:45:46 --> 00:46:23

the heart era, and then there is a mini conference for youth and the details of that inshallah will be there it will be from 11 o'clock to four o'clock on Sunday morning, there's going to be three speakers in that conference. And we'll talk a little bit more about that it will be meant for the the next generation so to attract them to the masjid and to get them more integrated into our massages. Inshallah, that's number one. Number two, when you do stand up, food will be brought to you. So please do not go to the tables, they will serve food to you. As we already know the front row is going to be for the kids. So the volunteers can start with the front row, and they can put

00:46:23 --> 00:46:35

the and then everybody can then stand up and go to the corner so that they can put those sofas down for us in sha Allah subhana Calama we have a shadow Allah ilaha illa Anta sufferer aquatopia Lake Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
