Salam aleikum wa
of how many lehle Bill Alameen wa there was select your item Teslin ala Sayidina Muhammad in wa ala alihi wa sahbihi, H nine Lawhon, Malema and so on. And finally my LinkedIn I was in a man with a country Denio blonde, I mean
I'm out of an Abdulazeez, the seven Khalifa in the house of Omiya. The seven Khalifa of the Omiya dynasty, inshallah is our subject for tonight. And we have looked in previous sessions to the dynasty until the time of our modern Abdulazeez. We spend the last session talking about a lot of Godzilla Aziz as the fifth guided Khalifa as countered by many of the Muslim scholars, and we quoted Sofia and authority Rama hula as saying the full sunset Abu Bakr in while Malala Manoa Ali, while Omar Abdulaziz narrated by Alberto, he said, The there are five philosophers in Islam and so he's counted amount of monopolizes as the fifth guy that Salif after the four non goddess collect up to
the Prophet solo hottie he was sitting
and we saw how the Lhasa from Oregon Abdulaziz was unique, sort of unexpected, and the dynasty of Romania and how it was much needed into into this reign of mania to rectify many wrongs that happened during the during the time of Benny lair. And some of that we talked about the dynasty concept, the tribal zealotry that was revived during the time before me, the alliances within the government that eventually led to the destruction of this dynasty, the oppression of many people, especially the supporters of ally or the Allah Hein in the time, then you may and then distraction by wealth and power from the real message of the feed off of the sound. And that's when a lot of not
Jazziz came. And that's why his Khilafah although short, although silica did not last for two years, but he was very important, very, very renowned, very well known very well spoken off. And that is why not we talked how we said how many
conquest and and adding territory happened during the philosophical well, even Abdulmalik, how many political revival and politically construction of the Muslim ummah happened during the collapse of Abdul Malik ibn Marwan, but still the death of a lot of these surpasses all of this more more mentioned in history. And that is why because it goes it steals back the message of the Khilafah to the way that the prophet the Prophet SAW Allah Allah he will send them over it was short lived, and to speak of the connector of Omar Abdullah bin Abdulaziz. We started with how the man came to be how Omar bin Abdulaziz came to be and starting from his birth and actually started from before his birth
started from his where he came from and how he is sipped a lot of them her father is the grand son, the great grandson actually a farm all of them have Bob to his son, our son in law who has a daughter. His name was Leila and Leila, Omaha son married Abdulaziz bin Marwan and the result of this
union was Ahmad bin Abdulaziz and we spoke with the story of his grand mother, to his mother, the the milk seller who refuse to cheat and who was asked fearful of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah in public as she was in privacy, and we see how
the girls comes out the goods in sha Allah as Allah subhana which I had mentioned in the book.
And then how he was raised in Medina how he took directly from his uncle, Abdullah bin Ahmad, Al Kappa, the Allahu and Houma and how he took from many of the Sahaba and the tabbing that were present and Medina and then his experience as a governor of Medina and hijas. Later on, and how he started his way of really, that was similar for the silica Rashidi and it was not as obvious during the time as when he was governor of Medina as as it was later on, when he became Khalifa but he will
is a learning experience for amount of an Abdulaziz and a good start to put him on the right path to an history and he was a governor in Medina for six years, between 87 After the headline to the 93rd, after the hits of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Then he went back to a sham, and he advised and Walid bin, Abdul Malik and lawan and then Selena bin Abdul Malik had been not one. And then the philosopher came to Abdul Malik to amamagna disease through direct will and recommendation from Selena and even Abdul Malik. And like we said, the Muslim world was waiting for Omar bin Abdulaziz and was really thirsty for somebody like Ahmadabad glasses to return to the concept of the
so tonight in sha Allah will start speaking of the Khilafah of the Halacha for Omar Abdulaziz speak of Omar Abdullah Abdullah says as Khalifa what was the course of history laka what was his method in ruling and in governing this since then on that and that is important because this is really a role model. He's one of the role models in our Islamic history to how government should be how willing people should go like
I might have been Abdulaziz, like we said became Khalifa and when he immediately became a Felisa and sofa in the month of soccer of the 99th year after the Hijra of the prophet from Allah Holly he was send them
he said in Allah why delay here Adria Oh returns to Allah like he was hit was it was a calamity. It was a disaster. And then he got on the member. And he told the Muslims, you have your day back, I give you I you're free from your pledge of allegiance to Me, because this day I was without consultation with you was that Sure. And then he was me given the BI he was given again the Khilafah and the Pledge of Allegiance.
So he is considered as a Khalifa and not a king, he is considered among the scholars as the Khalifa as the successor of the Prophet sallallahu. He will send them not governor that got the philosopher through inheritance and through a recommendation or will of others without consultation with the Muslims.
And one of the first thing he did is really what became a theme for his Khilafah is he turned away from the appearance of the luxury and extravagance and philosopher, he refused to get in the caravan or the Khalifa now the Khalifa at that time and the time of venule Mania with all the wealth and all the indulgent indulgence in well, they had a caravan for the Khalifa and whatever the Khalifa goes, he goes through a caravan which is really the way removes move today, there will be big entourage around them there will be horses and carriages and others. And when he saw this whole thing he said what is this? They said had remarkable Philipa This is the caravan of the Khalifa. And he said,
Bring me my new give me my new I have this is enough for me. And he got on his new like he went back to his humble house. He refused to get on the end the caravan or the Khalifa. And he refused to be in the house of the Khalifa and the palace where halacha was conducted. And he stayed in his humble house in Damascus. And that's where he remained until he died like him a whole lot.
And we spoke of his
of his speech when he was given the Khilafah his State of the Union if you will or his inaugural speech where he outlined the methodology how he's going to govern the Muslim world and how he committed to the path of Allah subhana which Allah in the Quran and the path of the prophets of Allah Allah He was similar how he should treat all people equally and how he will take advice from people and critique and he will be straight in on the right path and how he would prevent corruption in the OMA
and then he finished his speech with a beautiful word. He said a Yohannes and then the innocent the walker. Laughter Akashi and in that socket, Ilana who Alameen he said I haven't really so whenever I'm giving something, I want the thing that is better than it. He said why don't you remember our Tito Khilafah they'll cut mesothelioma who.
So when I was given the Khilafah now the family
It felt for me at that time is really the governor. He's the superpower of the world. This is the state that stretched from Kashmir in China, to Nadal in France. And he was governor over all of it. He was the ruler over all of it. And he said, When I was given this kingdom, I wanted something above that. Allah Allah Who agenda I want agenda. Now. I got everything that anybody can wish for in this dunya. And because my soul is ambitious, that I want in Ghana, for me, Allah then helped me for my quest helped me for my quest for agenda. Yeah, hum Comilla.
One of the first things that came out of an Abdulazeez he started his filata with is he sent to the army that was besieging Constantinople, that was sent by Selena and even Abdul Malik and was led by Muslim Ivan Abdul Malik. And this is narrated in a demo and how I mean, half of living kids here by him a whole lot. He said, the first thing that that army was in dire straits, they were in famine, they were tired, and that siege and he ordered them to come back to a shop. So he lifted that siege. And that tells you that his principle was to do what is better, what is best for the Ummah, what is better for the army, not to stretch the army beyond its means or just to, to give them things or to
to ask and things to deliver things they cannot deliver, just to please the philosopher, he brought the army back, and he left Constantinople alone, and that would be less like that actually, for hundreds of years. So the time of Muhammad recited, Rahim Allah.
And then after that, he wrote a letter. Now he wanted, he told people in a sham how things going to be during his reign. But the injustice is and the corruption was widespread, was widespread in the Muslim world at that time. And so he wrote letters to the governors of each state, each Muslim state at that time, telling them what they should do, and how his method of ruling will be. And he said, mean Abdullah Ameerul Momineen from the servant from the slave of Allah, and even what mean Ilhan Omar to the governor
and my dad for him and William Emery so funny we shade for what it truly is it duniya Deleon Avena ma I'm a truly a Wii U haul saltiness see. So this Anwar has yet to who was number one that said? He said those who were given authority and dystonia, they are giving a test they are giving tribulation, the LEA, this is it disaster personal catastrophe that happened to them. I'll Luna great one. Now I'm assuming you have enough see, with the self test that the governor is the person in authority has to go through. He said this is a big test. This is a big trial and tribulation from ALLAH SubhanA wa taala. So we ask Allah subhanaw taala the safety and we asked him for help for this
And he explained he said why are you Villa and a sudden delay in web security. Now if he decided who a failure, he said, What a trial can be worse than a trial where a person can achieve everything he says, and everything he orders when he is a Khalifa whatever he wants will happen. And he's also telling his governors, you are in a place of authority, and you have power, you have power, whatever you command people will do. And he said and that there is greatness for you. And there is a great tribulation. So not a fee. And if you deviated in that you're not cleaning the hell up to any caprice of the salt, any desire of your own self or how can a few you work, then this will be great
injustice, there will be great injustice in that in that yeah for law however for except for when Allah Subhana Allah forgives and for in our object to all he is so funny, I've done my book and when we are very
we had a fee slot here. I drew a sign on it. White Salman, I'm the VP and he led the Holika who Lena Shah and Masha Allah things in between Kelvin Z Latifi was the Rolla and Cara was spirulina. He said I found that those who are giving way of authority even for a small town or a small city, then they have to work hard to rectify the wrongs.
to work hard to rebuild, whatever is under whatever was put under their custody, and they're rewarding that is good if they do good meaning is Allah subhanaw taala meanings the word Alikum cinema.
And he said, make that your way of life. Make sure that this is your law. This is the law that you follow. This is your method. What's that I learned that correct and if something that you hate happened to you be patient was that I love that. And it's something that you like that you want, and please you happen and also be patient with it. Meaning that do not be do not despair, when things are rough when things are hard, but do not be arrogant and do not feel proud in yourself and things are going your way. You said those issues are things are tribulation. So when you are in a position of authority, whichever the wind blows, make sure that this is a test from Allah subhanho wa Taala
Be watchful be mindful of Allah subhanho wa Taala whatever happened, even if the things that you want happen in your in your reign, then let it be known to you that this is still a test from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. Walk a sniff sec, and review yourself. accounts have accountability with your own deeds fee couldn't be someone who Alania and all the private accounts and all the public accounts
in the Navy for juvie Magetta in the garlic and put that in front of Allah subhana wa Taala who only has your safety on the Day of Judgment had to fire to collect the NCFE until you leave your kingdom until you leave your place of authority for
me Hakuna Illa Karim this it may be sooner than you think when you leave that place of authority you can either be made step down, or in the case of a Khalifa you can die. And that's what he said. He said you don't know how much you're going to live. So make sure that every day that you live have personal accountability before Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and let Allah subhanaw taala Meucci will enter Messina in June and you are doing good and you are to be rewarded from Allah subhanho wa taala.
Then he said after that karma smfm income unheimlich female sanef mellette
compliant yet I wonder salehoo via he said, and review your previous deeds. Now these are all governors that were from the time of Selena Malik and Walid have not been Mimic, they had a certain way of life, they have certain way of government. And he said I want you to go back and review your deeds before review your previous way of governing and the things that you don't like that you think Allah Subhana Allah does not like, then rectify it, then correct it before somebody else correct it for you. And he was that to that, while I work for I love to see them accountable nurse and don't, don't make it hard for yourself and don't think much about what would people say? Meaning don't mind
what people would say now, since Omar is the Khalifa he is trying to sort of kiss up to our model bin Abdulaziz and do good and we know he's not a good person. And he's a hypocrite and all of that. He said don't mind people, when you purify your heart because Allah subhanaw taala do the right thing. And don't mind what will people think about you and what people would say about you, either I mean a lot who and like I said, John, who
are in the wholesale fee can the owner co owner now you
know, Henry fina Indy. And he said, If Allah knows that you are doing this for his sake. If whatever you do, and if you're doing it for the sake of Allah, then Allah will help you in this dunya Allah subhanaw taala will prevent the harm of the people against you in this dunya then Allah Subhana Allah will save that it works for you and the ACA. He said so don't make it hard for you to go back and undo wrongs that you have done before telling yourself that what will people say Now what will people think now? Did I weaken or etc.
And then he said
take care of the people under you and he said welcome lumen Wallach Allahu Allahu La se han gives good advice to the people who are subjects that the people that are lost parents Allah has given you authority over the Asuka you know him in a movie and feeding him and help them on the rectify the conditions of their own religion. Wow the him and their honor and their way of life. Lester, Mr. Park them in our IT him he said they'll anything you want anything you can out of there.
mistakes, either they're false. He said, Don't go and be scandalous and just say all the bad things about these people. And let us accept the things that you cannot rectify, they cannot bear meaning if a crime was committed, if somebody stole something, and you know, and you are the governor, your position is not too low, that is too early for justice or justice belong, but do not unveil things that are not in the interest of the Ummah and the interests of the nation.
And then he said, one, look, net second is a Hawaii TSA, why is he said, be in full control of yourself and your anger, if you have desire with something, or if you're angry with something now, people in authority, if they have, let's say, desire to own something, they can do things to take these, let's say, somebody likes an orchard or house or etc, they can make an excuse to take it without it's Dwight. He said, be in control of your own desires of what you want, and being controlling your anger. Because if the people in authority got angry with someone, they have the power to inflict severe punishment. And he said, You have to be sure that when you do justice, you
don't make it out of anger out of emotions. huckberry Hakuna Matata, thema Stefan Stoian, Hassan until you level things out, and things would be good under your reign.
Then he said, We ask Allah to help. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to rectify and correct our affairs, and to help us and for all the challenges ahead of us. And for the challenges that we are going to face after death. He is reminding his governors that it doesn't end here. There is a day after, there's when we go to Allah subhanho wa taala. And he said, That's Allah and you say, Hello, I'm Elena, Wyatt fina, my own fee when my own antenna, Lee female but I didn't note the accent like Isa was salam. And that was his letter to his governor's. So that was the way that he started his Khilafah probably Allah Who and by giving this letter and sending this letter to the for the
governors and the people under his authority and telling them this is the way it's going to be.
So the things that he himself Omar bin Abdulaziz applied during his governments came from different elements and different aspects of his own personality and from different methods that he followed. So inshallah we will go over one aspect of his falaqa one aspect of his methodology, if you will, and governing people. And the first thing that he did is the love of his predecessors, the love of the early Muslims, the first community and the house of the prophets of Allah, how do you send them? And why is that important to mention, because people in the house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at certain pay and certain periods in the reign of Benito Mejia were considered enemies of
the state. The the the offsprings of Al Hussein, or the Allah on the offsprings of Al Hasan Ravi Allah when cos were considered our enemies of the state for the new Alia and every Habib every speaker and the Juma has to curse the Allahu and before they get off the member during the time of the pneumonia until Omar bin Abdulaziz and before him in some narration before for Selena and I've been I've been medic who stopped this based on recommendation of Mr. Ivan Abdulaziz. But a lot of labs a disease had a love for the first community had love for the early Muslims. And he knew that that was the way if we follow the way of that first community and for our study of the seal of the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we know what they had to go through good and bad, tribulation famine, and again, well it's like what happened after her name? And he's said if you follow their examples, then you know this is the way to safety and if you follow the prophets of Allah Allah you will send them sunnah and the path of the guy that Khalifa after Him then we will be safe and from the an account history account into that what Faustina Lincoln Hussein didn't need to be piloted at the Allahu Anstalt in the domino effect has ended and it will be Allahu Allah and she said, after Omar Abdulaziz died, he said no Kana Dakka Yelena methods now, I heard that he remained for us we
will need nobody. And that's the testimony of how good he was to the children of Al Hussein and children of Al Hasan, who were really not welcomed. Were not welcomed in the house of familia before out of the Nautilus ease and he stopped cursing off leaving at
The pilot and he wrote to the
to the people that get on the nimbala and give the preaching for the people and for the Omarama to the governor. He said, When you get on the number some new and Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam give the blessing on the prophets Allah Allah Allah he will send them when you assemble and then me Nina will mean that and he said you have to give the beasts and blessings on all the believers when he has done several live ask Allah for his help and his support waster for Miss LFO whom I met and many Muslim in and let them ask for all the good of all believers for all people. When they'll do messianic and let them pray whoo and whatever else they like fitness and Allah had Sophia, ready to
leave. Whereas Allah subhanaw taala help and support and guidance and all our and our all affairs watershed was so lovely who the female hiboy When that Hola Hola, como se Illa Allah, Allah, Allah Allah. So that was his direct letter. This is a historic letter he wrote to people, he said when you pray on him, but don't curse anyone, and just pray for the good of all people and don't discriminate between people in the in some groups and others don't just make the dua for venue Mejia, or the dua for the supporters of the new layer or the support of the Khalifa instead, let that be common for all people, all believers and for the good of everyone for the guidance for everyone.
The second aspect of his methodology of government was sure.
Now, the government in Romania was autocracy. I mean, it was really sort of a self centered in the house of Romania, and the rest of the Muslim world was subject to the opinions in the house of former year, a lot of an idolizes change that and he asked the shura not from Romania. Now when Miranda didn't hack and we saw how we started the collapse and we studied all of that. The Omiya had a short Council, but it was within Romania. The Shura Council for my yo was from the people or for media, or from the people that are Alliance they have alliances with the house of Allah. But Mr. Evan Abdulaziz are the Allahu Allah and he sure I was with the scholars. So Allah subhanho wa Taala
said was Allahu Allah decree In Kuntum la Tala moon, as the people who know the people who have knowledge. If you don't know don't ask your family don't ask the people that normally don't have any interest in their whole interest is really in their own self development and self well, that he's cancer was discolors. And he learned that he learned that particular issue from his government when he was in Medina, when his council was 10 of the great scholars of at Serbian, including so he didn't say it. And I know Carson have been Mohammed bin de Baca, and I'm using an Aberdeen and the rest of the Fabien and the Sahaba that were in El Medina.
And one of the people that he asked for help for is Salem, Salem would not be alive no matter who was also one of his councils and Medina. And it is interesting to read this also this historical letter is reported and it is reported in a foreign entity and it was also reported in other references. And when he asked to shoot out this collars, and we will go over two letters and the response that came one of them came from Salim, the son of Abdullah bin Omar. Now this is his cousin, his cousin but he's also a scholar of Islam and he was one of his councilman in Medina. He said time Allah Tabata aka smooth with the halogen Tell me, tell me the human I'm ready Daddy will
be lazy. As a new sinner, only your activity you will learn the umbra. And he said Allah subhanaw taala like you saw, he is trying me he's testing me with this tribulation with this affair of his people. And I asked Allah subhana wa Taala to help me and make my destiny too good and the end of this to be good.
Welcome to the ITU NSE Rafi NASCI bcrta Omar have no power of the Allahu Allah and he said I want to follow the way if he is writing this to the grandson of Bob, and he's telling his grandson or my grandson that I want to follow the method of Mr. Adnan kata
sometimes it may well be cool to be Amara Walker that he could look at what he said. Send me all the letters all the wallets of Mr. Or Everything You Know From Our This is his
grandson direct grandson from his son. So he said send me everything you know everything you have the Rolex, a formidable hip hop, and he's dealing with the Muslims.
Why he and I had and the non Muslims, the people of the Zuma them, they need to be on SR wasa MBC Rottie. He Insha Allah, Allah had Sophia Halima your headway, because I want to follow his way, and I want to walk on his path. And then Salim, even Abdullah sending a letter saying, the people now are not like the people of kebab and the ways the times now are different from the times on top, he said, but do whatever you can to rectify things follow the path of the Prophet, and he said, you cannot really do exactly what Bob did, because times have changed, things are changed now, things have changed. Now.
The other Meltzer that he was he wrote to Al Hasan and bustling and has an endorsement, one of the great scholars and we went over his life. And he also asked for a recommendation and advice from an SNL basally and it hasn't been basally said, and a very nice reply to a lot of Abdulazeez he said that email me
person who is the just ruler because you know Allah subhanaw taala promised paradise for the just ruler and Rasul Allah, Allah will send them said that one of the seven people that are shades in the shade off that are will be shaded in the shade of Allah, on the day of justice, a judgment judgment will be the judge brush through her. So he said, Who's the just ruler, want to ask this great scholar. So he writes him back, he said, just through me and Momineen is like a loving Father, to his children.
And he worked for them, and teaches them and earn for them and save for them. This is how you want to deal with your people. And then he says, just ruler, yeah, more than what we need is like a loving mother with her children. She will carry them with difficulty, and she will put them down in difficulty. And she will raise him and nurture him and she will have to stay up at night to take care of them. He said you want to be a just ruler. Yes, this is how you're going to do it. It's not easy. And he said, if they are good, you can be good. But if they are not resting, you cannot rest.
And then he said an Imam will add Lugosi, Yulia Tana, his the caregiver, the custodian for the orphans, or husband Misaki. And and he's the supplier of the poor. And then he said, the enamel, mural. Momineen, the guru of the just healer is like the heart and the body of the heart is good, the whole body is good. And if the heart is not good, then the whole body will be corrupt, meaning it look at your own self, purify yourself with yourself. You are the heart of this nation. You are the leader of this OMA and if you are good, and if your heart is good, then the entire OMA will be good. And we saw that how how that happened in a very short time, only two years and four months and
the reign of Amara bin Abdulaziz.
And he said, The just ruler, this is really a very known letter and very beautiful letter. It definitely is a contrast to the book of the prints for Machiavelli, the famous it seems like most rulers today follow that constitution to run the government that this is this is the Muslim advice and Muslim scholarly advice of how you should run the affairs of the Muslims. Like a loving father to their to his children, like a loving mother to her children. And he said it just through there is what is between Allah and the slaves of Allah. He, he said, an enormous Lea and many who are caught in vain Allah He ye vazee Yes, no Kalaam Allah while you see at home. He said the enamel addon
listens to what Allah says. And let it be known among people. He delivered the message of Allah to his subjects, whatever you do in Allah, when you read him, and he looks to Allah meanings the Father's Day, he does what Allah subhanaw taala wants him to do. And he shows him the way he shows he is a role model. The 911 is a role model for the toplet for the people. Why I'm calling to Allah, Allah what are called your home and he is led to Allah and he leads the people to Allah subhanho wa Taala and he said, be like a slave who is trusted with the money was the was the custody from his master. So this is a trust in your hand. These
People this government this onma is a trust now in your hand.
And he didn't make it any easier on him. This is a long letter so bear with me. And he said was Korea and Iran meaning and note what my dad
remember death and what comes after death. Welcome Natasha.
What unsalted Callie. Remember how little guards you will have against death. I remember that you will not have any soldiers around you and the time of death they cannot prevent any harm. I mean they did nothing will will help you at the moments of death and after death. That is at what level Was he mad that doesn't mean at first a kebab and supply yourself with sustenance for the death for the moment of death and for what comes after death and standing before Allah subhanho wa Taala and he said while I'm here and Iran Momineen and Lehkonen Zealand, later on and Zilla Khiladi and Sophie your roofie he saw oak while you fire your
eyebrow oak. When you see Munna Kathy Yukari he for Eden wa heathen, and said Let it be known to you that you will have a house different from the house that you are in and in that house you will remain for a long time and those who love you will not be with you and you will be at the bottom of it by yourself and that is the grave said remember your your your Don't Don't let your your authority fool you. I remember your time in the grave. And he said set a zero word level Mayas hubcap, y'all may have thought will not mean he will only he will be or Sahiba he you have any supply yourself with things that would benefit you. And on the day when a brother will run away from
a brother when a mother and a father would run away from their son. And the one the wife will the spouse will run away from this house and the children will run away from the parents. He said that is the Day of Judgment when all you can take is the good deeds with you. And that was the letter of Al Hasan Basri to Amata monopolizes. So we saw how a lot of Nablus is asked the Council of the scholars and the clerics of the Ummah he chose the best and how they gave him the good advice to help him during his reign.
The third concept of the kidnapper firmado bin Abdulaziz is the concept of justice and equality.
Yeah, then, of his famous words of Mr. bin Abdulaziz, he said that the
island Nursey Isla Muslimah fez called Cobra for more he Lake one a third and he lays him what are called tuna Lake. He said, Remember, when your power your authority, allow you to dress to transgress and oppress people, then remember the might of Allah, remember the power of Allah over you. And remember that all the things that you take from people will go away. And all the things that you record with them will stay with you, meaning your deeds amount with them will stay with you. But whatever conflict you have with him over over money or other things, that is all going away. And that's what he used to say. And he would remember himself.
And one of the famous stories of the justice of Omar bin Abdulaziz
is he encouraged people, he was one of the
that encouraged people to come and complain or criticize or ask the Khalifa for help. Because before the time of classes during the time of painting Omiya the whole affair were up here and the people were down there. And that was there was a gap. The people cannot come and meet the Khalifa and offer their complaints. And it is narrated from the story of the people of some icons.
This is one of the famous stories that is actually narrated in many books that the people have some are cons. So of course, many of them were non Muslims at that time, because summer con was just conquered during the reign of Lolita but Abdul Malik and it was only four or five years until the time or from Ottoman Abdulaziz. This is not accidental poverty and poverty, the very famous historic book in Islam
and what the people have some Arkansas that there is a change in the way
A that they are being treated in summer con. Based on the recommendation of Armada and Abdulaziz. They saw that they were building now hotels sort of a hotel called Alcon at the Han and they will be people who have need will go to there and they will get supplies and they will get shelter. And the treatment has completely changed from the rulers. So they asked what is the deal, and they told them that there was a new Khalifa in Damascus and this Khalifa is good. And just and his name is Amara Lazarus. So the Peter of summer Quinn at the time of potato when Mr. And Bailey opened the city of some kind. When he received the city, he got into the city and conquered it. But the people of
summer can't heard that Muslims cannot come into a city unless they offer people three options. Option number one to become Muslims. Option number two is to pay the Jizya. And then option number three and the last option would be war would be fighting. So the pizza and summer concert potato didn't offer us that. And since there's a new Khalifa and Dinesh, new Khalifa and Damascus, then let's go and complain to the Khalifa. So delegation some summer con, went and met with Omar Ibn Abdul Aziz. So they tell them that before we heard that you Muslims, when you come to a city, you offer the Jews, yeah, you offer the Islam. And then if people don't accept, then you offer them to
So I might have been Abdulazeez heard them, and through his governor, and he gave his Governor orders to people have summer con, he said, You withdraw from the city of summer con, he asked the Muslim army to withdraw. This is a city under the reign of the Muslims. He said you withdraw some summer count. And you can't outside the city like you were before you conquer the city. And then you tell give the people the option to either pages here or to fight you again, or to come into Islam. So this is really underreported in history before. So the people of summer con to their astonishment, they saw the Muslim army wants to starting to withdraw. And they told them you have
three days to decide whether you want to pay Jizya or become Muslims, or we will come again and fight you. And then the people of summer con decided that to accept the Muslims and to accept the Islamic governments and then later on the entire
state and the province around some of Khan became an Islamic state.
Another another picture that is reported by history is reported by the judge of elucid. Whose
son he said one time and urine Momineen Amato glasses was in hemps.
And he was in the marketplace and he was checking on things. And he saw a man who is wearing a red garment which is not usual for the people of a shop. So he knew that he was not from that area. And the man came to I needed more money to Amato than Abdulazeez and he said yeah, I knew I knew Lockhart center to Anika Amata man CanAm of Lumina yeah TIAC I heard that you ordered that you told people whoever has been wronged to come to you and complain to you and Allah Allah one who said now and he said well how could attack Roger non Muslim the ADA da I came from far away and I have been wronged. And and I said why not? And of course always your dwelling was your people. And he said in
i Then I then is in the south coast of Yemen is in hub Ramos.
And Omar said Allah in the mechanic and in Kenya and not under the aid you came from really truly from far away. And then he got off his new role and he sat with him and he said nothing now much of what's wrong with what happened to you? And he said to me, what's
the current design and he said, I have a small farm small ranch that some of you people from Romania, they took it away from me, they took my ranch away from me. So um, I wrote a letter to his governor in addon although I've been Muhammad and he said that fader Jerrica Kitabi has office now but you know to hang up fat instead of Salah who happens to follow he said to the governor, he said you didn't have you hear him? You hear his adversaries and if he is right that give him back his ranch, but that's not this is expect
Did from a lot of inaccuracies, but here's what he told the man after that the man was happy and he was taking this letter and he wants to leave. Um, I said, I let us like, Hold on, wait a minute. And he said he came from afar. Yes. And the man said, Yes, I came from far. And he said, Well, you have consumed you have used clothes and your way here. And these clothes, you must have to replace the clothes. And you have used mules and camels on your way here. And these mules and camel needs to be replaced. And he said, Yes, I've you know, I lost the camel and I needed to buy such and such and all of that this is true. This is where the traveler you know, the basically the cost of his trip.
And Emma said, give him money to replace whatever he lost during his trip from Adam, to a shop.
And he said after he paid him the cost after he paid him his travel expense, because he came to complain to him. He said, extra Daddy can fineness. Let everybody know that we pay people that come to us to complain. At the lay at the third column of Ruhlman and roughly $1 Naughty he bagged a young man that can evade a DA so people don't Don't be lazy don't make it hard on themselves. They won't come to us and complain no matter how far away from us they are so he paid him travel expense to come and complain to him about the wrongs that happened to that man. And this pictures of the justice and equality of Ahmad bin Abdulaziz Rahim Allah.
The other aspect the fourth aspect of his philosophy is preserving public money. Like his grand great grandfather. I'm not a fob, he or we know how I might have gotten caught up in kappa. Allah who withdrew would follow a camel and because it's a camel that belongs to the Muslims, and how will he would treasure everything that the treasury of Muslims had. And the same thing
I might have been Abdulaziz applied, and his whole salary every day, a lot of Nazis was to get him to their hammers very little money at that time.
And his garment was a Durham in the price of his garment was eight their hand. And they contrasted that to his garments before the Khilafah. And he was 100 folds, he was he was wearing things that are worth 100 of what he used to wear before he became a Khalifa.
And one of the things that he would do is if somebody came and talked to him about the affair of Muslims, he would use a certain candle. But if they started asking him about his family, he returned that candle off. And when he would light, another candle, his own personal because now the questions are not about the Muslims. It's about his own personal family. So he would not have the public light. And the players when he's talking about his own personal affair, And subhanAllah how we need something like that.
And when I want things that he would not heat his Waterfoot will do in the kitchen of the Muslims and the public kitchens where he puts the fire to feed the Muslims and, and the word is coming from public Muslim account, he would not he would refuse to make withdrawal in that water. He would refuse to bathe in the water that was heated and Muslims money. And one time, his servants, barbecued a piece of meat for him in the kitchen where they feed the rest of the Muslims and wood. This was a public feeding place and he brought it to him and he refused to eat it. He said this is public money and this is haram for my stomach and you go to my own kitchen and you barbecue a
different one for me to eat. One time he wanted honey and honey was not available in the place that he was at. So his wife
asked for honey to be brought from a different place. And they send it on the post on the post office so to speak, mu that belongs to the money and he refused to eat from that. He said it came through public transportation and I have no rights unless he pays for that service.
And his famous word was a Muslim that beloved Muslim in a future what Jamar he said the news of the Muslims are Kurtzer Ahmad can have whatever he wants to desire. And he said Nigel and Allahu I have covered a lot in that evening mr. Nene. He says this new rules are available for all Muslims to bring things I mean to us it's really inconceivable so what's wrong with that? You know, you can just pay the money that this
was not an available service to all Muslims. It was only for the Khalifa. So it is for the Khalifa for just state matters. It's not for him to eat honey. So he said as long as this service is not available for all Muslims, then Allah will not have the service and you will not enjoy or indulge in that that is not available for the rest of the Muslims.
And one of the things he did is his, his wife Faustina, daughter of Abdul Malik, then Mattawan had jewelry, and that jewelry came from her father, where another bin Abdulaziz considered all the money in the hands of the new Romania is wrong. All the money that that are the new money, all the wealth that the dynasty of may have gathered, is haram. It's not money that was gathered lawfully, because they gathered it using their authority using their power over the Muslims. So he asked when he came to became a honeypot, he asked his wife to return all her jewelry, to the treasury of the Muslims. And she said, I my father given to me I mean, this is he said, well, the money of your father is
given to your father and an unlawful wife. So you have to return all that jewelry to the treasury of the Muslims. And she gave it all to the treasury of the Muslims. After a lot of needless he's died. Her brother is either an idyllic became Khalifa which she is the wife of the brother sister of the Khalifa. So he bought that same jewelry and gave it back to her sister to his sister said here's your jewelry that Mama took away from you and my father gave it to you and she refused to take it and she said Malcolm to the elderly, I took her home.
I will not leave it in the life of Allah and take it after Ahmad passed. So he gave it to his wife. I see it's been Abdul Malik gave the jewelry to his wives.
We know who is the true winner in that deal.
No costume have been at the backer one of the cons known as a councilman was he said, matter Omar Abdulaziz Rahim Allah welcome letter I had a problem. What can I do to catch you who said the other Ashleigh Dinara? cofina minha be some sappy dinner near the studio Allahu Mobio, covering the dinar right. He said the will of Allah when Omar died in his house, there were 17 dinar 17 pieces of coins.
And he said the kefan just to know the value of the 17. He said the shroud the kefan cost five,
and the place for the grave. And I think real estate was a lot cheaper than it was to Deena the great site was 430 now, and the shroud was for five dinar. And the rest of 10 was his whale that was divided amongst 11 children. And that was what he had. And he was one of the people of familia, the wealthiest family on the face of the earth at that time. And we're talking about, you know, what would be worth billions of dollars today. This is the the royal family of the greatest nation on the face of the earth. So you can imagine the wealth in comparison to what we see today. And when he died, all he had was what's enough half of it was in only enough to buy the shroud that he was gonna
bury in and the size of his grave.
The other thing is the open door policy that Omar Abdulaziz had, and we saw how he
had an incentive for people to come to him we saw the story of the man that came before it and he paid him his way. And he said tell everyone that we will pay you if you come and give us your complaints.
And then he actually went further than that. And one time he wrote a memo that said AMR or agilone Kadina eyeliner, De La Loma, our Umrah, muesli, Kobe law who the husband min min unredeemed fella who met him at dinner
he put a reward he said anyone that will bring me a complaint another personal complaint, but things that would rectify the affairs of the people anybody can show me wrong that I can rectify, they will have a reward between 100 dinar to 300 dinar depending on how how far they came and how difficult it was for them to report this wrong.
And then he said
are you gonna sponsor? He said yes, Hubner becomes wildlife and whoever is with this law
them have five rules or will leave us alone. Rule number one your foul Lena hydrated malaria. sophio Rafa to tell us the things that people cannot tell us, give us the news about people that cannot deliver to us. Why are you while you're eating now I love hiring and to help us to do good with his own efforts way adieu laminal higher melanated de la and to show us the ways of good that we cannot see maybe there is a way to do good that we don't know to show us that what else I don't know I'm gonna harden the force is cannot back bite anybody and presence of Amara bin Abdulaziz,
Allah Yanni and do not speak and things that are not of importance or have their own affair to them.
So that was his open door policy. That was the other very important things that he did is fighting corruption and omega
omega Yeah. And I think we spoke enough of that was really corrupted at the time of Omar Abdulaziz. So to find that corruption to rectify that corruption was something that a lot of an avalanche he's put as a priority in his government.
And according to many historians that cost him his life, according to many historians, that cost him his life when the people of Romania his own family conspired to poison him and kill him. But how did he try to fight corruption and the family of Romania?
He first put them at the same level as as others, which was an insult to the Klan for me, yeah, because they are the elite of Cush. And they have been in charge of the Muslim ummah. And they have taken all this wealth and all this authority, and they are used to it. And they felt like when I'm out of and I've lost his cane, he took clients away from them he deprived and things they viewed as their own given rights, God given rights to have this station above the Muslims. And I'm not even Abdulazeez would not have it this way.
One time and I was I and emammal, Jose now at the tomato bin Abdulaziz was in his house and the honorable of the people of Romania came to his house, and he loved what they wanted. He read in their speech and their the way they talk what they want of him, they want him to give them certain privileges. And he said Africa guna when the cooler Rajan, I mean, come Genda and you want, you want me to give you soldiers to give you servants to give you people to serve you. And a man said sarcastically, I said limitado Wiley novella. Hello. Why are you saying things that you don't do for us? Why are you? Why are you teasing us like that, telling us that you're gonna give us that, but
you're not going to give us he's not teasing them? He's just asking, Is that what you want? Is that you want that privilege? And then he tells the people who may Yeah, he said, Corona, be salty, Heather, do you see my rug in the Alamo. And now you're seeing Dylan work and I know that this rug will just be worn out and and he will go away while in Accra, who and to the nisu will be Abdullah Khan. And I hate for you to to
pretend nisu is to really not make dirty but this honor my rug by being here. So he was really harsh with them in the talk. And he said, the case that we come out of and you see me and how I can give you the custody of the Muslims, how can I give you authority over the Muslims? Hey, had to Hey, hat there is no way and they said, well, Nina and Elena karada, aren't we your clan aren't we are your kinship? And he said unto work for Julian Newman, Muslim Nina Andy fee has an unreleased. He said you and the furthest Muslim from me. Anybody in the land of Muslims are equal. You are my client of mine. Yeah. And any Muslim in the land of Muslims are equal. And that angered the people of omega.
The other thing is he started taking away the privileges and the money especially all the money went the way that the whole alpha the governors before Amara bin Abdulaziz would make Buddy Rich is they will give them real estate they will give him from all the conquered land they will give them ranches and orchards and farms and things.
Is that actually generates money, they'll just give it to the people of Romania. So the people are familiar we're getting richer and richer. And with rich come with wealth come power. So and I started taking all of these things away from the people before me. Yeah. So they came to him. And they said in the
industry me, you have expanded the treasury of the Muslims wife custody, and you made the children of your Father poor. When you made your family poor, you're taking away money from us.
Well, how's that envelope
cuplock Federal Home.
Most of our info shannock He said the sins of these things before you. It's up to the people that did it before you meaning if at the melakukan LoRaWAN are a leader imagine Malik gave this wrenches away to OMA yet, then they will be asked about it in the Day of Judgment. Leave that alone. Just don't take it away. The sin is not up to you, and almost said whether or not you come Is this your opinion? And they said no. Yes. He said lacking in our garlic but this is not my opinion. He said Well Allah He lowered that to Allah tip Ha, fill out the most warm atom in order to her. I wish that there would be nothing wrong on the face of the earth that I would not rectify. He said not only in
the lens of Muslim, I want to rectify all the wrongs, whether it was done before me or after me until I die. So the lens to Mr. Neal Waleed, and he was the one of the elders. And then he Oh, my Yeah. And he wrote him a letter on Well, well, not only one letter, and that was not to no avail with Amato than I did. ICS. So they went after that his aunt Faustina, bent Matawan and then heckum his father's sister, who has a lot of love to Omar and Omar loved her so much. And they said maybe his aunt would intercede, and he would listen to her because he treated his aunt, like he treated his mother. So he came and the entire clan of finial Mejia revered this elderly lady in over Yes,
let's use her. So they send her to her mother and Abdulaziz.
And she told them that my nephews and my grandchildren are being insulted in your time and you are taking their money and given it as we were given their money to other people. So Omar laughed and he said, Yeah, I'm here let me and then the DSL melotti he was sending them and that was that I can nessa Alan rude, said when the Prophet salallahu Salam died, he left a wide open river for people, meaning that this religion and the wharf that is in the teaching of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He said Columbia Valley cut by the hula Joel, and then after him took this river, Salem Western kuzushi and, and he left that river intact, and he did not take anything from it. And then after that, a man came and he lifted meaning Abu Bakr and then Mr. And then after that people came and they started taking this river and divided into little creeks here and there until this river is now cannot be seen. Meaning all the teaching is of the prophets on the law. It was said he's given an example. All the teachings of the prophets of Melania send them now it's completely ignored by people and this river of wealth of knowledge, this wealth of knowledge and teaching from the prophet
is now drying up in our towns so people cannot recognize right from wrong. And then he said, Why am Allah laying up Kearney Allahu Allah didn't know who Isla Madras a word of Allah subhanaw taala kept me I will return this river to wherever this is that status that it was in before the fella hombre who was happy with this that he can be happy and who is not happy, then they can be not happy. You said I don't care if they're happy or not happy with me. Those people are my
and they said financial support in that then don't let anybody curse them. And then he said woman used to bomb I don't let anybody curse them.
You he said when somebody complains
to me about them, then I have to do the justice and the right.
And then his second answer came to him and he said how come allaahu been an hour Boehner? May Allah have justice that we knew and between you and us kappa unless you're attending three have you deprived us from all the rights that the people before you will do?
Isn't that he used to give us and he said, You threatened me with the justice of Allah. He said Lola, then he can move on to our solar home like home. He said, if it's not for the justice of Allah then I would have given you that, if it was making me hold out from Romania, and give the rest of people is the justice of Allah because I would be asked by ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala about these things.
And one time, he went saw a man if not many died, and he immediately got the Lhasa after Sulaiman. He heard that one of his cousins, was given 20,000 dinar as a gift from the Khalifa. He said, 20,000 dinar is enough for 4000 poor houses, and the lands of Muslims, he shall get none out of it. And he prevents it even the orders of the Khalifa before him from being executed, because it did not make any sense and it was wrong and unjust. So these are some of the aspects of the way of the ruling of Amara bin Abdulaziz, there really is still more to come in sha Allah. And we will go over that in the session in sha Allah next week, about the public welfare, how he treated the public how he had a
welfare system, how he has feeling of the responsibility, and spreading that in the OMA his animal rights, and how he refused the bribery how people tried to bribe a lot of anopheles ease, and how he infused those gifts and the bribery how he dealt with his governors, and then the spreading of Islam and then liking Hadith. One of the great achievements of Ahmad Ibn Abdul Aziz is the start of writing the Hadith in his time, and inshallah we will conclude
tonight, as of Allah Lavina and you will feel canal in our field. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to guide us to the right and to help us follow the path of these great leaders before us and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to rectify and correct the affairs of the Muslims and send us rulers and governors that follow the path of amado bin Abdulaziz and the guided Khalifa before him me
