This is a story
which shocked me we're loving.
And it is a story that existed in about the 10th century.
In the Islamic era.
In that time, Muslims were attacking,
sorry, enemies of Islam who were ruthless.
were attacking the Muslims in a place called Iraq, in Iraq.
And they had invaded the homes and raped the women
and stole their children and killed the old men. This is in history.
Because they said, Our Lord is Allah.
After doing so, there was a man at that time who existed he was a great scholar and a great leader in battles. His only cause and motive was to defend the Muslims wherever they may be wherever they were killed or oppressed.
His name was Abracadabra.
This man Abu Kodama was once and he was very courageous. He was one sitting in the masjid when a group of people came up to him, and they said to him, yeah, Abracadabra, we have free time right now. Can you tell us of an amazing story that happened during your time, we want to eat the most unusual and surprising story ever to be heard? Can you entertain us? Yeah, Abracadabra, and make us come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And then about Kodama set for a while and gathered them. When everyone was silent, like you are right now. He said to them.
I recall one of the most shocking stories that ever happened. Until today. I don't know how to explain it.
He said, One time I went to that place out of Russia in Iraq.
And I stood up in the mosques.
And I went out to the city where there were young Muslims to recruit soldiers, who are ready to defend the borders of Iraq to stand guard over there.
And if the enemy attacks, to be strong enough to defend the women and the children, as Allah says, In the Quran, what is wrong with you, oh, believers, that you did not go and fight in the cause of Allah when the weak and feeble people are calling out how Allah sent people to save us.
We are responsible for the weak ones,
whoever and wherever they may be.
And so he began to recruit people.
Only a few gathered with him. And so he began to ask for some wealth and money.
After the day had ended, he rented a small apartment, a little place to stay in. He said, I went into this place, and I stayed there.
And then just after I sat when I was praying my night prayer, I was a prayer belt to pray my wisdom.
When all of a sudden in the middle of the night, everything is quiet. You can hear the crickets outside. When my door began to knock.
I said so Pamela, nobody knows me here. I've just arrived yesterday.
And already my door is knocking. And Someone's knocking at my door.
He said, so I slowly went and opened the door.
And in front of me there stood a woman.
I could not see her face because she had covered all of her body, everything.
And while she was covering her hand, she reached out her hand. And before she opened it, she asked us a man who was calling out for recruitment today. We'll use the man who was gathering wealth in order to go and guard our borders and protect us.
He said yes.
You were the one who was calling to jihad.
He said yes, I am doing
so she said please open your arms, your hand, and he opened his hand and she dropped a piece of cloth which was wrapped up into his hand.
And he said take this, it isn't a man. It is a trust.
And she ran off. That's all she said. I wanted to ask her many other questions that she had no reply.
So I went inside and opened that cloth and I found a piece of paper
with something written on it
and a thick lock of hair.
I read the paper and the paper said
today you are calling out for recruitments to fight with you and protect the weak people.
I am a woman and unable to fight
and I don't have enough wealth to give you
so my heart
I was struck with shock and sorrow
when I did not find anything to give you, so I went home and cut a lot of my hair.
And that is the one you see in this cloth.
The only thing which I can give
to the cause of this is my lack of hair. I asked you to please use it as your rain, any the rope that would see the horse
so that maybe Allah will recognize this, and know that I was fighting with you in your head.
Even though taking a look over here of a Muslim woman giving it to a man is not allowed in Islam.
But Has she had spirit reached that stage? She couldn't stop herself.
She said, and tomorrow someone will come to you. He's a recruitment.
See if he is worthy.
And that is it.
He said, so Pamela, what kind of a woman is this?
So I took the look of her. And I did put it onto my reins.
And I the next morning I gathered the troops and we went out in the middle of the battlefield.
When we reached the battlefield
in either borders, we noticed that a group of Army after a day began to make their way towards us. And so I got the army ready. And I told them to stand guard.
As we were about to move forward. I heard a voice from afar distance calling out. Yeah.
And Tony, wait for me, my uncle.
He looked back. And he found a fierce warrior on his horse galloping fiercely towards him. And he had his face covered like this.
As soon as this man approached him, a vocoder monitor and he said, How can I help you? He said, wait for me Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah, who has written for me to meet you and unite with you?
He said, Come down, come down and take a bit of breath. He said, You don't understand. I made a Doha all my life to have this opportunity. And I thought that you were going to beat me Allah, Allah decreed that I was going to unite with you Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah.
He said, asked me, What do you want? He said, I want to fight with you. I want to have part in this.
I will Kodama said to him.
Show me your face, I want to know who you are.
And then he reluctantly took the cloth off his face.
And abracadabra said,
and I looked at his face.
And before me,
was the most beautiful face that I'd ever laid eyes on
the face of a young man,
about 17 or 18 years of age. His face was like the full moon in its brightness.
And I noticed that he was young. And I said, Son,
What experience do you have?
How can you come and fight with us? No, you are not allowed to come and fight with us. You are too young to return back. And he said, but my mother came to you last night. He said your mother said this. My mother I said Who is your mother? And he said she's the one that gave you a lock of her hair? And she told you to look after me. Sir, is that your mother? He said none.
He said you should go back and look after her son. Don't come here and fight.
And he started to hold on to him, the young boy and he said to him nervo. Kodama, no, no. My father fought in Jihad now to fight to. I want to defend. Please accept me. I have great experience. I have fought many battles and unexperienced horse rider.
I'm a really good, experienced person, what law he will find me that I'm able to help you a lot.
When he insisted on him, and he insisted on him a book a demo to me. He said to him, okay, if you are insisting on traveling along with us, then you have to stand in the last line. And your work is to prepare food for the soldiers. He said, fair enough. I'll do that.
they went out.
And sorry, the enemy wasn't approaching but they got they had news of the enemy approaching.
And so the time of lunch came, and the soldiers wanted to eat.
And he sent out to this young man, his name was Mohammed to go ahead and prepare the meal
About one or two hours past, no food had arrived, about gadamer said, so I went searching for him and thought what had kept him so long.
And when I arrived, I found the pot was boiling in front of him, and he was asleep beside it.
I said Subhanallah, he must be very tired, because he said during the whole day, all I saw him was he was the most active amongst all the men
who would race after this one and race after that one help this person helped that person
is very active during the day, I became amazed how how agile, this young boy is how enthusiastic this young man is. And so I thought, I felt sorry for him. And I thought maybe he needs some rest. So I did not interfere and I did not
disturb him. And I began to prepare and finish and complete off the meal myself. But as I was thinking, he said, I heard a small sound coming from him. So it looked immediately at him. And all of a sudden, I see his face begin to smile. He's asleep.
After a few moments, the smile grew. A few moments later, his teeth began to show. And then even a few moments later, he began to laugh in laughter and giggle.
As he was laughing, his laughter began to intensify until finally he awoke suddenly. And he saw me in front of him with open eyes. And his smile immediately failed, immediately faded away.
As though he was shocked that I was there in front of him, and he did not want me to be there, as though he had a secret.
And then I said, and then he he got up immediately. And he said, Yeah, Honey, I'm sorry. I didn't know that I had gone to sleep. Please. You don't have to prepare the food. Please let me look at them. I said, No, you sit down.
Well, Laurie, I will not let you do anything until you tell me. Why were you laughing?
said I was laughing. said yes. You're laughing your laughter could reach
a few meters away.
Still never Kodama, since you saw me laughing. And you went, let me go. I will tell you what I was dreaming about. But you have to keep it a secret between you and I.
For if I tell you, maybe Allah will not accept my reward of coming here. Maybe it will be insincere.
So please tell me, he said, I'm listening with open ears, I really want to know what he was seeing in his dream.
And then the young boy said,
I slept. And then I noticed as if the last hour had come, the world ended.
And the Day of Judgment came,
everybody was looking up into the sky, Shafi Sutton.
And then all of a sudden, I hear a voice calling out, grab Mohammed, and take into paradise.
Amongst everyone a light came to me a light and took me away. And then there was a man next to me, a very handsome man, his light emanating from his face to reach the far corners of what I could see. And it took me into gender.
And I asked him, Who are you? And he said, I am one of your servants, which Allah has made for you engender in your palace?
And he said, Where are you taking me? So when he began to smile, said, I'm taking you to your wealth, and to your family, and to your belongings and possessions in your palace in general. And so his smile grew more.
And then when he reached the great gates in the great doors of his large position, he said, I cannot enter here
for you have women inside and I'm not allowed to set eyes upon them.
It's small group.
And so he entered, he said, and then I found many beautiful women.
Their life was so great
that I thought if they were too relieved to sit to show themselves on Earth, they would like the whole earth.
And they grabbed my arm and took me away.
And I thought I knew my wives.
And I said, No, no, no, we are just your servants.
But you have your princess wedding inside and then hidden
inside the tent, reclining on her silk sheets, waiting for you.
And so I entered, and all of a sudden I see a woman
which almost made my heart escaped, made my soul escape from my body.
And I said to her, who are you? and a smile grew when his teeth began to show.
And she said, I am the one whom Allah promised you.
I am your wife in general. I am the one who Allah gift drafted for you.
I'm a dirty man.
men, karate iron.
And no more men knows what Allah has disrupted for them in general,
even for the women.
And then he said
he came to extend his arm and touch her.
And then she grabbed his arm and returned it back gently. And she said to him, No, you're Mohammed. Not now.
I asked Allah to save you from any bad acts. I have not used it.
And it is because you have saved yourself from harem acts with other women. Allah gave me to you. So keep yourself pure here Mohammed.
When my wife, Rodan in the photo, our our meeting is tomorrow. And we shall break our fast together because Mohammed used to fast everyday one day on Monday.
And then he said, when she was speaking to me, I began to laugh and I really wanted to approach her and she would say no, yeah, Mohammed Not now. No, yeah, Mohammed not now and I began to love and love until I woke up.
That is my story. I'm a vocoder. Please keep it a secret between you and me. Otherwise, my rewards will be gone.
said it's my secret.
He said, I will kill them. I kept my eyes watching this young boy.
The next day, the army the enemy arrived. It was fierce. And we attacked and charged. I looked behind me where Muhammad was supposed to be standing. And all of a sudden he was right in the front.
And he did not have any experience in fighting because he could not hold this sword.
Mohammed had deceived abracadabra in St. him he has experience.
He said I could not reach him anymore. But he was right in the front line.
And he would call out
the message of his mother. Yeah, evening, either lucky to home
fella to allow him to work. If you meet them, then do not run away and show them your back. He will call out like that. Allahu Akbar. And he would fight whoever would fight him. It would fight whoever would hold the sword against him. And against the Muslims. He would protect that person and then that person.
Until finally abracadabra said dusk grew so much in my eyes, and I lost sight of him. I did not know where he was. Finally, Allah gave us victory because we were fighting for a noble cause. And at the end of the victory, we started looking for our martyrs.
And then I just wanted to find Mohammed, the young boy, I did not care about anyone else. I kept searching and searching. When all of a sudden I see at a distance, a young boy holding out his arm and saying, I'm me. I'm me, and I could barely hear him. So I ran to him as fast as I could. And I grabbed his beautiful head as though he was my son. And I looked at a face, and a face that was once youthful, and a face that was once beautiful, and a face that was so handsome, and a body that was so young and strong.
The horses had trampled him.
The wheels had crushed his burns
his face. His face was undescribable.
And he was holding a piece of his shirt which was ripped.
And he was taking deep breaths, dying.
And then ever Kodama held his face and he began to cry. He said, My son, I told you that the war is very fierce. Didn't I tell you that the battle is not what you think? Did I tell you and Didn't I tell you that you are still young? I told you my son and you had to go forward. Why have you done this to yourself?
And he looked at him and he said to him I'm evil Kodama. This is what my mother raised me for. My father died for this cause as well. Do you want me to do you want to deny Me and you have all people the army abracadabra? You are telling me to go back? When Allah says in the Quran, and what do you fear when fighting and his cause?
He said to me, I mean, this is what I want. Well, I could see my palaces in front of me. If only he could see what I could see.
And then he said, but I require one thing of you.
when you reach her,
she'll be very saddened and she may not believe you that I have died in the cause of Allah. So I want you to take this piece of my shirt and show it to her so that she can relieve her sadness. And know that I am Angelina and what she has raised, she will also be engender with me. Let her know that Do not be sad and my mother by died and you will be
with me forever in eternity engender my mother. I died in the cause of Allah now it'll be a guarantee that you will be with me and we will be together with my father.
He said because nothing else will come her heart.
He said to me, Oh damn, I also have a young sister. Her name is Fatima. She's only eight years old. She has grown up with me to love me so much when my father passed away. And I love her extremely. However my um, her love I have never seen like that before she's too attached to me.
When you reach her, please try to look after her. Please try to calm her down. Please try to say soothing words to her, for I fear her consequence.
She loves me too much. And don't show her show her my shirt. I will Kodama promised. And then while he was holding him in his arms, young Mohammed began to smile, and his smile grew. And then it grew even more, and then even more until he began to giggle with laughter. And he said, Yeah, poco de la ilaha illAllah in Isla de Muro de Zhang vision be the woman that he saw in his dreams. Her name was Maria, Maria, the pleasing one. He said, Yeah, I mean, Abu Kodama, look at her, she has just come down from the sky and she's lying beside me holding my hand. She's waiting for me. I'm Allah sacani wa. He gave me what He has promised. I am going to agenda with Medallia she will keep me company,
el secret between you and I. And then he died while he was doing well. He was biting onto his lip like this and saying to other Kodama, yeah, I'm remember our secret. And he died and went to a loss of Hannah, Hola, Tyler, and noble this. And then abracadabra went back to his land into Israel into the village in Raqqa. And all the women went out to meet the Messiah headin.
And then came the mother of Mohammed, searching for him. And then she came up to a vocal dharma. And she said to him, my son, Where is my son? Have a Kodama looked around and said, he passed away. And he says, He fought in the front line without returning back and he did what you had advised him and what you trained him to do. He said, I did not believe you. I don't believe you, as just as his son said. And then he said, but he told me to give you this shirt. And she looked at his shirt, and she looked at an examined it. And she knew that it was the blood and the stains of her young son Mohammed. And then she cried and put her arms up to a law. And she said, Alhamdulillah, the one who
has saved my son, I will now definitely be guaranteed that I will be reunited with him and my husband.
But before that,
I will Kodama saw something, a young girl,
racing towards every man fluttering like a butterfly,
touching this man and looking at him, then touching another man and looking at him, then turning another man around and examining his face, like a young child does.
And I will call them I knew that this was Fatima, looking for her brother.
And so I went up to Fatima.
And I grabbed her, and I hugged and kissed her. And I said to her,
what are you looking for? And Fatima said, my brother, Mohammed was Mohammed was Mohammed. Do you know where Mohammed is? Do you know where Mohammed is my brother, I love him. I want to see him. And he promised me that he will return because Mohammed said to Abu Kodama, it said to him before he died, I promised my sister that I'm going to return otherwise she would have never left me.
But I'm not going to return. So he promised him that he's going to come back where is he?
abacha Damn, I started to cry. And he said to him, Fatima. Your brother says Assalamualaikum to you. And he says that soon you're going to meet him in Geneva inshallah.
She said, Jenna, that he died. Abracadabra said yes. But he died a noble cause before he could finish this word. Fatima took a very deep breath and she fell unconscious to the ground.
He came to pick her up but the mother rested her and she said leave her. And she took her daughter away. And into the room. Abracadabra knocked and knocked. But it was too late. He heard the mother inside crying and saying, Oh my Lord, my husband died for your cause. And he is in Jeddah, insha Allah, my son, I have sacrificed him for you. Yeah, Allah and I have raised him Please do not do not deny me my presence and my unity with him in gender. And now my daughter has passed away and followed her brother. Yeah, Allah, my husband, my son and my daughter. They are all to you in Manila. When they lay here as your own to unlock we belong and to Him we shall return our la
guarantee me a place in general with them, how Allah unite me with them, and she began to cry until her
Voice faded away into the darkness. I will Kodama kept knocking, but she would not open for him.
He said, so I lift her,
and I went away.
Until this day, my dear companions. The story has remained unexplainable to me. And I do not know this. I did not know what happened after that.
These mighty brothers and sisters were the stories of those who fight sincerely in their hearts towards Allah subhanho wa Taala. These were the ones who sincerely in their hearts struggled for agenda.
The we struggle for gender in any way.
Are we able to sacrifice something my dear brothers and sisters in any way that will love I see that a lot of us think about themselves before others. A lot of us think about our needs and our stomachs and our pockets before any other people. I see even more than that. Some of the Muslims today who claim to be Muslims.
we take river and usury from the bank because we are in need in need for what they want to buy.
an expensive house with river they want to reach that objective of $100,000 This is the necessity.
Well, the years have been there
and they say they are in need thinking about the shape on ways. We see people who do not even think about others anymore. don't donate even a date, a date from their pockets.
For the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala
when you are filling up petrol
forget about filling up $25 fill up $20 and leave that $5 in donations. So
when you buy your cigarettes, forget about paying for a cigarette today for a box today. Leave it till tomorrow and rather put that money for donation.
Donate to the causes that are ongoing and ongoing charity ongoing knowledge which will benefit you in your grave
which encourage this and work towards it.
Think about your brothers before you think about yourselves.
This is the way our last panel data wants us to be my dear brothers and sisters. In these stories. There are examples and they were wisdoms. I have left you with these wisdoms and with these examples are losses, * associated kasasa and I ended with this Allah says * also Sr kasan sila I love him yet

And so relate the stories to them so that they may contemplate and think not stories that are lies, but stories of true fact that will make you come closer to Allah and intergender I asked Allah subhanaw taala to unite us in gender. I asked Allah subhanho data to make us one of those who truly desire agenda for if you did not design agenda, how can you enter it? We ask Allah to save us from hellfire. Allahumma save us from hellfire. Allahumma We seek refuge in You from your NGO Allahumma we asked you to let us unite and drink from the hole from the fountain of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam our law make us one of those whom the profit center matters in the profit center
