Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah brothers and sisters Today is lesson number four on the
stories are the lessons from the lives of the Four Rightly Guided caliphs. The Khalifa has. So this is lesson number four and we've already talked a lot introduction and so on and so forth and definitions. Once again, go to the crystal mosque website or the Facebook page. I believe they're also being put on YouTube Insha Allah, you can watch them and catch up. So today insha Allah We continue the life of the great companion Abu Bakr, Radi Allahu anhu, the first successor of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which makes him the first nonprofit leader of the Muslim world. Before I begin, for those of you who are new here, my dear brothers and sisters, I
want you to understand that you as a Muslim, you belong to a big, huge, huge body. There is nothing like this body. It's called the OMA the OMA. It has the word own which means mother, and Omar means the believing community of the world. And when you say whom, which means mother, it's as if the prophet peace be upon him or Allah is calling us in the Quran. We are brothers and sisters from different backgrounds in different places, as if we are encompassed by one another, our own source. So when you say I am a Muslim, I belong to the Ummah of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Some historians describe us as the sleeping giant, the sleeping giant, and this is the Islamic empire
which spread the the largest known empire to the modern world is the Islamic empire and the sixth largest in the world's history.
1300 years of that, so inshallah you can read more about that insha Allah Allah so that you can be proud of your identity at the moment, as we say historians call us the sleeping giant, but our own man never dies and 100 in there. So you are just you are not just anybody in this world, you are a Muslim who belongs to a huge body, and it will return insha Allah the Islamic empire will return as it was before. And as many even non Muslim historians who understand the history They'll call us call the the the Islamic empire, a large part of it called the Golden Age from which most of the advancement technology and modern day things that people use around the world
are from the Muslim world. Anyway, let's move on insha Allah to the sources, the people who built by the will of Allah, this is amazing Islamic empire and how they advanced. We're going to learn more about a Muslim is not just somebody who lives inside of a mosque and prays all day. A Muslim is not just in Ramadan. A Muslim is not just the person who goes to Mecca, a pilgrim and wears humble quotes. This is part of the religion. But actually Islam is community. Its advancement. It's working together programs, plans, management, political and private, public and private, political and personal. My brothers and sisters. Islam is everything we live by in this world. So let's look at
Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu and go from there. Last week we spoke about Abu Bakr Delano how he was elected as the new qlf, the new successor of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I can't repeat all the reasons and the wisdoms and the signs that called for Abu Bakr the Lama to be the Khalifa you'd have to review the past lectures. We stopped at the point where Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah who went out to the people, and before he assumed the member, the member of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, they have to clean up the member and tell the people that he is the new Khalifa and address them. He had to go to the people of the city first, and he had to make sure that all of
them accepted him as the Khalifa there were only a few Muslims still in Medina. And they were the Sahaba as the companions of the Prophet peace be upon him, and he said out loud in public I have been elected the Khalifa by notable men of yours notable people that you all, you know, respect that he named them, do you accept me to be the Khalifa and all of them said with one voice, we accept you Oh Abu Bakr. He already was, you know, qualified, and his stage was set. There was only one person and his wife, who hesitated in coming out to blit pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu and they were none other than the great ally of the Allah Allah, Allah. Tala brother Allah Allah the
Prophet peace be upon his first cousin, and the first month
To the child in Islam, one of the temperaments paradise and one of the Four Rightly Guided Kelly's amazing men that we, that you know, each of us wish we were here on his chest. That's how amazing he was living alone. And his wife, the Great, the perfect, the beautiful, the amazing, the great, Fatima Zahra are the Allahu anha they stay for six months, not coming out to pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr galana. And I'll just talk briefly about that I'm not gonna there's no need for us now in the 21st century to go into detail about it is a long history from which,
a division happened in Islam politically as time went on, and it turned into a religion or some practices in certain beliefs within Islam, so I highly doubt the Allah Guan
did not come out for six months. That was the period in which his wife fought him out of the hola Juan had the daughter of the Prophet sallallahu sallam was alive until she died. When she died. I highly doubt the Allah Allah came out in public and pledged allegiance to Abu Bakr. What is the story behind that? I'll say in just a few minutes in sha Allah. The issue was
that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left behind some property,
a bit of land, a bit of property.
And there was a land which Fawlty Marathi, Allah Juana assumed she would inherit.
She was one of the people who inherited
as the Quran stated and she was right about that, that the Quran states inheritance.
So she, when she asked for this inheritance, Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu said, No, you can't take any of the inheritance after the prophets Allah has done
and she got upset, not understanding what the situations
because the Quran said sir.
And for a little while, she was also very sad of the loss of the Father, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Extremely she was extremely in deep grief.
So people backed off her and and understood her situation
under the law and also stood by his wife.
Having the Quran said this, they should get the inheritance Why would plus the Blissett land and the property
later on, when they gave a walk or go on a chance to talk? He quoted to them the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam which is an authentic hadith that we have till today that the Prophet peace be upon him said in NL MBS LM you were referred to determine whether the neuron were in ML one roughly,
from an other who are further who'll be hovering over health and welfare.
The hadith is a Muslim man before he is similar and it's no doubt about what it is. The prophets Allah Selim said, the prophets never leave an inheritance of wealth behind
only the prophets, their wealth becomes public property. For the Muslims.
In America, the only thing the only legacy the prophets left behind is knowledge. Whoever takes from it has taken a great deal of fortune. That's what the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said Abu Bakr had heard this from the Prophet and few other companions. When added to the land, Fatima heard about this hadith, they relaxed and accepted and they stopped talking about the inheritance. But that's not all. It's not the only reason why they also hesitated. Another reason is that either their loved one was a little bit upset that since he is the cousin of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and a very important one, indeed, why couldn't they have waited for him to come and have a say in
who the next Halifa will be? He is not against the book or the alone he loves him. In fact, in one of his children after, however, I laid out the Allah Guan who wanted to have a position that he is worthy of to be among the shorter committee. So shorter means a council that elects among the elites and truly he wants. However, 100 Alana was busy with an ibis, his uncle and the others preparing the province Allah send them as funeral. And in that time, the Muslims are about to divide. Remember, last class of a chronometer raced with a few other comparisons of Aveda. And they could see that this was an exceptional situation that had to be resolved then there otherwise there'll be great
division. There is a history between the tribes of Medina, I'm not gonna go into too much detail but there was a fear of division. They had to make the decision and worked on the came out. And the third thing is that he came out and the people accepted him. The majority of the Muslims, if not nearly 100% of them accepted him. And it's not a condition that every
single Muslim has to accept him as the Khalifa, so long as the majority and the most important ones that everyone respects and knows. So the fact that although the law was a little bit upset at the beginning where these main factors, and what happened was that the Muslims, they kind of laid off, they gave him some space, not only that his wife is alive, she is grieving, he wants to stand by her, and she is the daughter of a prophet loved her so much. And he's one of the perfect one of the perfect women of the world. So nobody wanted to hurt 14 Madonna's feelings, or Oliver their loved one. But when 14 or their loved one had passed away,
argue that their loved one felt the pressure come off him in relation to standing by his wife side. And then a new pressure came on him. And that is the people, the people started changing towards him. They got their loved one.
These are from the Sunni sources, of course. And
they started to look at him differently. Like why are you delaying? Golly, we understood that your wife was alive, you're standing by her, we gave you all this. But now it's different. And the law knew that he should come out. So he came out and met with Abu Bakr the Lovato in the message.
And he said to him,
he said it in front of people, most honest one, he's Oliver the longest calling a worker. Oh, so we admit your superiority, we do not desire to compete with you over the position Allah has given you. So he made it clear. It's not about our limit the amount of doesn't want leadership. Because he knows the prophets, Allah Selim said, Whoever seeks leadership, don't give it to him. Because it's not about power. It's about responsibility.
And even America didn't ask for it was put on him.
But you rushed, he says, but you're rushed before we could have a say in the matter. And as relatives of the Prophet, we thought of some right,
to the left for also, meaning we could be a candidate, because I'm a cousin of the Prophet, Allah salah. Let the people decide.
And the people did decide anyway, a walk around who started to cry.
And he said to Ali, the Allah Allah, by the one who possesses my soul in his hand, to connect ties with the relatives of the Messenger of Allah is more beloved to me than to connect the ties of my own blood relatives.
Now, be careful, you're talking about a man in the process, and I've said is a severe, he is absolutely truthful, by the tongue of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and mentioned in the Quran. So he's not manipulating or making up words, he's absolutely honest in what he says. Then he said, As for the wealth, wealth left behind him, in front of the people, I did not desire except goodness out of it. And I cannot put your request above a matter which I saw the Messenger of Allah do, except that I would do what he did.
So he did what the President told him to do. And that is, profits Do not leave wealth as inheritance. It's not allowed for the profits. They leave knowledge inheritance for the people.
At that point, I think that their loved one was satisfied. You see, let me tell you something, not everybody heard from the Prophet peace be upon him the same words, we actually now have more Hadees compiled in one book than what the Sahabas got to in their lifetime. And he they slowly got towards so somehow this weren't really there yet, and then they would hear it. By the time their death came, they knew it all. So anyway, I knew them I was satisfied that Aisha I knew that their loved one and Abu Bakr both spoke in front of the worshipers again, and clarified the misunderstanding, and the Holy put his hand out and pledged allegiance to Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu publicly,
And this misunderstanding is normal. It can even happen between the companions. But you see their intention, when they dispute it is different to the majority of us today when we dispute over leadership or power, big difference. Big difference within the sun and the moon, for their intentions are always to serve Islam. The fact that Oliver Delano said the cousin of the Prophet peace be upon him meaning maybe the people would like to see the cousin there. So that disunity will not happen later on. Maybe I was thinking about different circumstances for the OMA and I was thinking about different circumstances for the Ummah, both of them in the right direction, but both
of them with a different opinion, nothing personal, nothing for themselves. Nothing because of power, fame, or fortune, Allahu Akbar to say that about it for the Lord, to say that about a worker or any of them is like it's all
was blasphemy to talk about because the Quran and the prophets are Salah vouched for both of them, putting them up on high pedestals? How dare we talk down upon the companions of the prophets, Allah Senlin, whom ALLAH chose to be around him. It's it's, it just boggles the mind. So we love all the Companions, some above others but all of them were companions of the Prophet Allah salah, who are the best generation ever to be. My dear brothers and sisters, let's move on.
The next thing I will talk about the Allah one who did, in fact, the first thing he did when he became the Khalifa.
The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Just before he died, he had prepared an army
an army of Muslims to go where to go to Syria. To face the Romans, the Byzantines. Remember we said last time there was the present tense came to fight with the Muslims and Hamdulillah he went without winning, and there was still a threat from them. And they had killed one of the companions fathers. The Companions name was Lucerna had been Zaid will sama the son of Zaid was that he had killed his father. And of course the last 11 loved or summer ignores eight or Surma was raised in the house of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And what happened was the prophet peace be upon him made Zaid or Salman Zaid, the commander of the army to go to the Romans. Then he died sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
before the army lift
Abu Bakr, the Allah and who came and prepared this army and wants to continue. Before I say anything about that, the point I want to make about this brothers sisters, before anything.
Look how important the words of the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
and word to these companions. They did not question anything if it was authentic from the mouth of the prophet. He prepared this army, no questions asked. Against all odds. The Messenger of God said it. Who are you or me to even use or dare to use our own opinions against his words, if they are clear cut,
unfortunately, happens a lot today. People are even questioning, you know, authentic Hadees from first law Salem with their logic, thinking.
There are even people giving their own interpretations with no knowledge
of a book or their loved one who comes up and gets this Osama and says the expedition has to happen. Do you know how old Osama was anyone?
He was 16 years old. And maybe 17 You let it go? 16. What can a 16 year old do leading the whole army as a commander going to fight? At that point though? We're the superpower of the world. The Byzantines. You might be wondering, why would the Pratap Abu Bakr said I'm sending him as a commander, the nearly the entire community of Muslims including the homebuyer, or the Hola, Juan,
they opposed of working with a loan. They said how could you send a little basically a
almost a child who's got no you know, he's just, it's just a tent, you know, 16 years old, still very young. In those days, I didn't call them teenagers, there was no such word. This is a new word, teenager.
I don't like that word. We're just forced to use it. Because it kind of babies people don't. Like you're not a man, be not a child, but you're a teenager. And then society allows you to do certain adults things with certain other adult things. You're not allowed. For example, you're allowed to 16 have a girlfriend or a boyfriend, you can do everything a married couple does. You can have kids, the girl could go to the hospital, get an abortion, and kill a child.
But Oh, how cute is the boyfriend and girlfriend? That's cute.
They're only kids SubhanAllah. But they're not allowed to get married by law.
You know, this is morally wrong. Really. I think even though you know, it's illegal to get married under 18 year in Australia, but I'm just saying that how society has changed. That there's there's all this contradiction double standards. And I think that young people today, unfortunately, they are not ready. If you're too young, not ready for marriage, because the society community has made you you know, things around I mean, some of those aid.
He wasn't just anybody who was trustworthy, honest. He was experienced. He was trained. He was taught by the prophets, Allah Salam he read, he wrote, he memorized the ask.
It wasn't just somebody who was sitting on the PlayStation, or on tick tock and Instagram and sharing flimsy things and making it like it's the world
today, may Allah subhanaw taala wake our youth up and help them and, you know, we need to help them a lot. We need to guide them as much as we can, but
I do know a young youth who Masha Allah very mature, I would advise you young people, you can be much more mature and skilled than what you think my first advice is read a lot.
Not Tiktok reading, not means read, grab any book, good book, read about business, read about finance, read about medicine, read about animals, read about the trees, read about anything Read,
read and learn about life. Try new things that so long as the millennia.
If you can work on the holidays, work gets some experience.
Respect your parents and take responsibility. Don't let them do things for you.
Tell the mom and dad I'm going to try and spend my own money try you try and do it. Learn about savings, learn about spending, learn about responsibility as much as can boys and girls.
You know, and I think and surely young people can mature up pretty well. And I know some of the students at the school I teach some much more mature than others men, I look at them. And I think Man, if they just had an income right now,
they can easily get married. I've seen 3040 year olds who've got no clue. It's not the age. It's rather the experience, the knowledge, the
you know, the maturity.
Just the society, the ages, you know when you're 16 side has made you very mature. But if you travel the world, man, there are 15 year olds.
They are so ready to take on
you know entire families and look after children everything.
Anyway, I'll just get back to my topic insha Allah. In those days, young people were very mature, and they were trained with Sam Adams aid. They all oppose them and then Abu Bakr the Allah and who said
Wallahi I will not stop an expedition. All the leadership of Osama as a commander when the Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem himself prepared it and it was about to send him I will not change your hair about it. Oh, my God came up to him and said,
We just found out there are people leaving Islam, there are plasticizing they're leaving Islam. There are people who converted in a place called nudged. And I don't know what that there's this guy named Salem. He's now saying he's a prophet, and his gathering people and people are leaving Islam and following him his gathering an army against us.
You got to look after that. First of all, we're gonna leave leave this expedition. And Abu Bakr refused.
I will not refuse what the prophet prepared. Who were you to tell me about Mr. Salah prepared, I'm gonna stop it never, against all odds. I don't care if you told me an asteroid is gonna hit the Earth. We're sending.
And he truly did. And that will law he had so much benefit. He made all the tribes of people around respect the Muslim, this new commander, Abu Bakr, and the Muslims around Him, those who thought of leaving Islam could see oh my god, these truly have power, they're going to face the biggest superpower, the Byzantines, let's stick by them because there's some people converted to Islam that were weak. They're going should we should we not? And although we're thinking about is do we get anything out of it? Is there power? Are they going to protect us and they keep converted to Islam insincerely a lot of them started to do that. So when they saw this power, they stuck with the
Muslims, and some of them became stronger Muslims afterwards. And it put fear in the enemies because they thought up with the Prophets death is no more religion, these guys are going to fail Abu Bakr to the softy, they finished when I saw this, and at the hands of the commander who's 16 years old, and they were victorious. At least they didn't lose, they went to came back and Oh, victorious. Wow, that just lifted the morale of the Muslims. And the people around them respected them even more. So there's always wisdom behind the prophets word, even if right now you cannot see it. I'll give you a very quick example. I want to get through some really good material, but I just want to bring it to
something really nice that I read. So I'm into science a lot. I like reading scientific articles and things I'd like to compare it with what the promise of SLM said, and see what modern modern science says and medical science. So
once you know I knew the Hadith of the Prophet, Allah said and that if a fly lands in your meal, do not throw the meal away. He said, he said, If the fly lands in your meal and dies, dip the fly into the meal and then just take that portion, that little portion around out with the fly and throw it out and eat the rest of the meal for in one part of it or a wing or it has many interpretations. So one part of the fly there is the bacteria, the bad bacteria that causes you harm. And in the other part is the anti bacteria it kills
Is the bacteria that it gathered? And
there's I started looking Pamela into new studies and about I think was 2010 2009. I found a study Subhanallah in the Scientific American, and now Scarlett's on BBC is, it's in a lot of scientific articles that they wonder they asked the question, how's the fly land in all the dirty stuff feces, toilets, everything, and yet it still survives, why? How can it survive? It must have an antidote, an antibody inside of it, we can probably find a way to extract this antibody from it. Antibiotic will antibody and we can perhaps
engineer it to put it in humans against
deadly diseases that we don't have a cure for such as hepatitis and all of that stuff. And subhanAllah they said, but how do we extract this antibody from the fly Wallah, he references this. They said the only and easiest most efficient way is to dip the flies in liquid and then we extract it from the liquid
because inside it's all its body. And the study is still going on now. Soba Karasu, Allah is Allah Azza wa sallam is truthful
and I remember in that Tony Robbins saying look at these Muslims, we told you they're dirty. We told you they don't know anything. Look how backward they are Subhanallah
that is not true at all. These people are very ignorant of what Islam and Muslim civilization really is. Let's move on inshallah.
When I was sent this expedition, I want you to also memorize this. There were rules of law. You don't just go and pillage and kill everybody. Abu Bakr their loved one. Also as a leader, watch how he treated Osama the young 16 year old a book of the law no at this point
is well over is 63 years old, 62 years old.
He takes Osama who was 16.
And he walks with him to the exit gate of Medina.
And he says to him Oh sir,
may I ask your permission that I stay behind to look after the affairs of the Muslims. The Emir of the movement in the Khalifa is asking permission from this young boy 16 years old, to allow him to stay behind out of respect for who for the prophets of Allah they will send them
the prophesies and put them to the commander. Now he is big in the eyes of Abu Bakr. Secondly, Abu Bakr gives respect to the people whom he has given responsibility. So they can feel that they have a say they're in charge. They're important. We don't put our children down. If we want to teach them. We don't put our students down. If we want to teach them. We make them feel big, where it is deserving. And we highlight it and watch that child growth. Watch the child respect you and love you.
My brothers and sisters, then he said to him, oh, Santa, let me give you a horse to ride on the aboubaker he said Wallah, he will walk with my feet.
I refuse. He said, But you are not Mini and ride on a horse. He said, Well, Allah he will not accept either of the two. What's wrong with a bit of dust on my feet in the Cause of Allah. Every step one walks in the cause of God gets 700 rewards.
You see what they're after?
That's what the companions are after.
He's thinking about the hereafter and his leadership position is not about this world. This is about his hereafter. In fact, it's a burden on him.
My brothers and sisters have worked with a man who stopped Osama and gave them the following orders. Listen to them. He said, Listen, everyone. Be not dishonest.
Do not deceive anyone.
Do not hide the spoils you get. Do not mutilate anyone's body. Do not kill the age. The children and the women. Do not set fire to date palms or trees. Do not cut down fruit trees. Do not slaughter a goat or a cow or a camel except for purpose of food. Also, you will come across people who have given up the world and are sitting in monasteries. They are like monks, monks sitting in their little monsters doesn't matter what religion they are. He said, Leave them alone.
Do you see my dearest sisters the rules of war in Islam?
Is this an army who has come out to the world to convert the world by the sword
or to kill everybody
with such rules of war that have been set
and have been enabled
inside our entire texts, books and religion.
Only the people who are fighting them
That's it. And if they lay arms they'll lay out.
My brothers and sisters, such was the expedition and now I move on to something else.
When the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam died, the week Muslims around who sought power and fortune and all that stuff, and nationalism and tribalism,
they started to use the Prophet's death as an excuse to leave Islam.
That's number one. Number two, they were a people in a place called Nash.
The name is not important, the nasties. But in those days, as I told you, there was a man who said he is a prophet is Allah, his name was Muslim. And we call him till today even the non Muslim historians call him will say lemma the liar will say live and
that's how the prophets Allah and upholding. Now he started showing up at the time of the Prophet peace be upon him before he died by a few years. And at the time of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was Salem, and he came to the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem visiting. And he said to him,
a messenger of God, I believe you're the messenger of God, but only on one condition, I will practice the religion, I will lead the people in Islam exactly as you want on one condition, that after you die, you pass on your prophet hood to me, I want to be the Prophet.
But also Salah salem said never
prophethood is from Allah and you are Elia.
And among other things, cutting the story short, will say never went back to his people in nudged. And he made up a lie. He said, The Prophet Muhammad said that prophethood is a partnership between me and him on one and he's one.
And he started to make up verses like, well, he tricked the people thinking they are versus like the way the Prophet received verses from the Quran.
I'll come back to him shortly.
This guy manipulated a lot of people.
And among the nasty people and others around them, one of the first things they wanted to stop so the first thing was leaving Islam because they wanted their desires.
And the second one, that is a cat, they stopped paying the Zakat. In Islam, there's no tax system. This only is account, and Sadako. This account is for the poor people of the citizens, poor people. And if no poor citizens are there, we give it outside
2.5% of your saved up wealth, which is left over for a whole year, nothing.
The cat was compulsory and this is how the community survived. They stopped paying zakat.
To this they didn't understand the spirit of Islam but the power just want power.
And the most people were known to be highway robbers outlaws in Arabia.
And what the what Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu did. He said this is economic greed from you people.
the elites among them pocketed the money.
And what I call it, I don't know if you guys have studied political science and all that stuff. Well, in today's world, you would call it an oppressive form of capitalism, and hierarchical imperialism. So the words are new, but the actions were always there, from the beginning of time.
So these people, they wanted to follow this false prophet, and stop paying zakat stop following Islam, they knew he was a liar. But so long as he gave them what they want, it
reminds me of these fake celebrity people
that go on there and they trick a lot of our brothers and sisters. And then when the money gets more and more, they leave them for dead
have heard of what we call hijab influences. They lift the spirit of our sisters who wear the hijab and say wow, there's a connection in my system. I love it Where have you been hiding all your life? And then suddenly they take the hijab off all those words then change and start making up new words. I do me you do you it's how I always want to just words that really aren't of interest. I call them verbal gymnastics, just all over the place a salad of words
and many others I'm not just talking about them so anyway, let's move on. Be careful who you follow and take as your role model and celebrity guys. These influencers they're making
a lot of money off you and I tricky many of them, not all of them, many of them. Anyway, the point is, this is one of the guys must say
About 1300 years ago, man,
they've always existed these people, but more sailor man just use a different tactic he tried to because the people were interested in Quran and words and poetry. He was a poet and a magician. He mixed poetry with magic or sorcery words, and he came up with strange words, I'm gonna say some of them to you later you're gonna laugh your head off. And people just thought that's enough for us. We'll follow it because it fits our desire. And today we live in a world of desire Wallahi the justifications people make they bring Quranic verses, they interpreted the way they want, I look and I think, oh my god, really people believe that. But then I look on it's true. People are they're
You know, all they have to do is play on some Arabic words, how many people know Arabic in the West? How many people even know the Quran. So when we move away from that, we get tricked, and anyone can come up and say whatever they want. And people today, some of them, they read some of them intellectually lazy, they can't take more than 15 seconds of Tiktok. That's about it. That's the knowledge they get, can't sit and learn and really give some of your time to real knowledge. But we can spend three, four or five hours just scrolling away to nowhere.
And anyway, but there are young people Masha Allah, who are leaders, I see them.
A lot of you are here right now. You've been coming over and over again. It's not about me. But I considered termination. Michelle, and Allah chooses these people.
May Allah guide us all. Brothers and sisters.
What is Alana gonna do with all these people, he gets in Advisory Council, he never takes the matter by himself.
And he says, What should we do?
And they said to him, let's focus on the imposters the people who left Islam and those who are hypocrites, imposters. They're sitting among us let's try and find them out. A Walker the Elana oppose them.
And he said, What about those who refuse to pay the Zakat? They said leave them for now. At least the Muslim and among them was on brother Lonnie said at least the they say La ilaha illAllah. Now I want you to pay attention to this brother and sisters.
Very careful attention. Don't get it wrong.
Here he goes. He said
walhi If a single kid
is owed zakat from a man he must give it, I don't care. If he refuses, I will wage war against them.
If others do not support me, I will fight alone. I will fight alone. No one has the power to change the commandment of Allah.
You might be thinking as a Muslim focus on the imposters it makes sense to look at the long haul. Allah chose him in that position. He knew the consequences of things. Now only in his time the people didn't pay this. They were the people who have to deal with why? Who are the ones really suffering here?
The ones really suffering the victims are the poor people, the people in poverty, the orphans, the widows, the children. Why is Abu Bakr appointed a leader that you remember what he said last time, he said, The weak person is the strongest to me, until I take back his right for him. And a wealthy person who owes someone something is weak to me. Nothing until I take the right from him and give it to the victim. That was the purpose of aboubaker and Allah placed him there for that reason. His first priority were the weak and the victims and number one is the Zakat. Listen to what the Prophet peace and such a knowledgeable man he was the prophet peace be upon him said mineral Coway hydro
mineral movement or DIE FOR FREE killer. He said, the strong believer is better than the weak believer and both of them have goodness in them. And in another Hadith, Cairo NASCI and fowl, homeliness, the best of people is the one most beneficial to the people, the promises and said, the most among the most beloved to Allah are the ones who are most beneficial to others. So with this occurred, it empowers the weak and makes them stronger, and the community gets stronger and the believers become stronger.
And that's the cat goes to help the Muslims and the army and the community and the welfare.
That goes there's a cut and then these capitalists will take it to themselves hide it and everybody misses out when that's power. The economy goes down. Oh look, Don was very smart.
But he said this is a commandment of Allah, it must be the most important, the most important the hypocrites Allah will deal with him the the apostate, Allah will deal with him right now.
I've got to deal with what
In front of me What's observant? What's real, the first the third commandment of Allah Zakat
the tribes came to Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah.
And they said to him, we're gonna give up Zakat
and we'll stay in Islam. But if you don't let us give up zakat, we're gonna leave Islam. He said, Well Allahu Allah will not give up a single commandment of Islam, you want to leave it you can leave.
No, you either accept Islam, all of it, or nothing.
You can't be lip service except part of it and reject part of it. Oh my God, Allah who came up to him and he said, Sorry, they went back they prepared their army and I went to fight Abu Bakr the Allah. Oh bucket picks up an army gets it already and said we are going to face them on what are the one that comes up and says yeah, Abu Bakr. Let's get peace between us and them Now's not the time to fight. We just sent an army to Syria with Osama we're low. We're low on on weaponry, we're low on man power, we're low on everything. Just leave them he said well, Allah He will not leave them who ever stops one commandment of Islam. He said you will fight them while by saying that him or her in
the Leia Abubaker. Omar is saying that Abu Bakr staunchly in front of everybody tells him off and he says to him, the following words.
He says to him
You are a brave bully in Jaya Helia time, but a coward in Islam. Yeah.
Did you forget that Allah ilaha illa. Allah is only accepted, if it's conditions are also accepted with it.
What is the Ilaha illa Allah.
There is no god worthy of worship, but Allah but I'm not going to obey this. But I'm not going to obey the prayer. But I'm not going to obey the hijab. But I'm not going to obey the hodgepodge. I'll just it's my Islam. It's this is my version of Islam. This is how I am a Muslim. Everybody has their own Islam.
There are many, many, many, many Muslims, each one has their own type of God, some worship trees and their Muslim. Some of them they look like clowns and they're Muslim. Some of them they look like, you know, colorful Muslims, artistic muscle, all sorts of Muslims.
We have many, many Muslims, but we are one. No, no, no, no, there is a play on words. Allah says we may have 30 label Islam, Indian and fella. Whoever wants it other than Islam as a way of life for them, it will not be accepted. You are either following Allah honor. And that's exactly what the Jews in the beginning did. Allah said about the Jews. He said first they gave them the Torah and he told them hold it and he honored them and gave them nobility and sent all the most profits from them. He chose them and then they didn't hold that responsibility. They change the Torah. And Allah says, I don't want to be bothered Kitab Karuna bebop, you believe in only part of the book. But the
other part you don't pick and choose what you want of Islam.
don't play with Allah's religion. If a person doesn't want to follow wants to be sinful. That's one thing. Allah accepts repentance, but to come into the religion and say, This is what Islam is and try to define Islam in your own way. This is absolute disbelief and Cofer. You will not be accepted and you won't be successful. Difference big difference comes saying that if we don't accept that or to say, Look, I know but I'm just weak at the moment and some people said MC dot for me or May Allah guide me that we are all like that. We're all we all got scenes, we all got shortcomings. That's not what we're talking about.
And we shouldn't point our finger to people who are sinful and have we're trying hard to become good Muslims. We're talking about people who openly get up and blatantly and arrogantly
go up and try to make a version of Islam that never existed.
Anyway, Abu Bakr, the Alon who picks up arms, and goes to nudged to fight the army of Muslim
there was a place called Yama
Yama remember is when was Salem or was
now let me just tell you a bit about more Salem
Abu Bakr to prove to him and to the rest of the world that Islam is not a game that you can't accept part of it and reject parts and and just say you're a prophet.
Musa lemma comes up and believe it or not, some Muslims even there's one particular companion I forgot his name.
He used to be with the Prophet peace be upon him. He went to Messiah, Messiah nama played on words with him brainwashed him and he apostate it and stuck with masala Masada like this because look, I got a companion. I told you I'm a prophet.
So anyways, people came up to him. And they said, What makes you a prophet Yamo say lemma so that week
go around and at least use it with the people you know these Arabs they know Arabic. They know the difference in color and poetry and you're a sorcerer. He was a sorcerer and a poet. Give us something so he used to make up what he called the Quran of masala
nothing new we still hear about false Quran is coming up and they're dying out none of them last. The first one was the Quran and Muslim and he gave each Surah a name. So for example, I'll just give you three of them. There was one called Surah 10 field
you know lm Torah K for follow up Buka because have been feel LMH al Qaeda and feeted Lille Yeah. So we also have Unkar yarmulke I want to add raka mal Korea so what he did is he mumbled and jumbled a lot of the words of the Quran and he made him his own and all they did is because it and field so he goes and feel warmer. He goes and feel warm and feel warmer Dropcam and feel LA who them when we're below her two months away look.
It just means this the elephant, what is the elephant? What would explain to you what the elephant is? Here's a short tail and a long trunk.
Yanni it's laughable. Another surah he called it sort of diff or a diff da the frog.
ignorant to the FDA. Nuclear bat and cleaner alert you feel may well as fellow if you clean it just means this Oh frog daughter of a frog. Croak as you croak your upper part is in the water and your bottom part is in the mud.
this bow Nick clean it clean in come 2018
l'alma who to cut the rain all octina to fire 18 When Alou but, Tim nine, oh, Frog, croak, croak.
As much as you want a crook.
You can't make the water murky, nor can you leave the mud, nor can you prevent water
and as many other laughable things like that.
So his people looked at him and he said, they said to him, come back Allah. May Allah make your face hideous. That was a word the Arabs used his own people said that Allah make your face hideous. Anyway Mohammed salah, Salah and came with all these verses. And Phil on Adderall COMM And feed LM Tara K for tharla buka was having field Jani. This is talking about a historical event that no one that has gone and people don't see it right now.
he's talking about an event that only few people know about and you
come and talk about an elephant everyone can see the trunk everyone can see the tail everyone knows what I know you haven't brought anything new here. Anyway without going to detail. The
they said to him. Well, I can now Bianca Durban Mina hiraman saw the common Quraysh doesn't matter then that will do. A lying profit from us is better than a truthful profit from kurush. So it is all about power, will accept the line profit. I guarantee you today. There are so many people following these different lying people. They know they're lying. We all know they're lying.
There's political correctness that make up words, but it suits what we want.
Not me and you I'm not having a go at you. My brothers and sisters. I'm saying in general, people in the world anyway. So we need to open our minds and stop being followers insha Allah whoever it is, and doesn't matter to be different, but in a good way in a proper way in a way that pleases Allah.
There was one more he's called the Alcocer. He goes in our planner Kojima here for salida Rebecca hedger, wala tota, Aquila. Sahelian, we're careful.
I won't even bother translating is just ridiculous. There's another one I've heard that's called sorted that
anyone heard of salted to
Apparently honorable house before he converted to Islam. He went to Salem. Honorable asked the prophets companion before he converted to Islam great companion. He went to a small Salem and he goes Listen man, we got this guy. Mohamed Salah Salem is out of our tribe, we want to beat him. Are you a prophet? Have you What have you got? He goes, he goes, what did your Prophet say? He goes he brought a beautiful verse in our cleaner called co author. Amazing.
And then the guy waited for an hour he goes, I got something similar. He was telling us and he said something like in the Atlantic, a twofer for selenium because
we gave you the appearance of pro to Allah and then relax. It has no mean nothing. Nothing. So I'm gonna said, Look, I know you're a liar.
But you know, we're just trying to use something to beat this man. You're the best we've got. That's how it was guys and nothing's really changed today. This is your
Musa lemma the story I say friend sarcastically, of course, Messiah married a woman called Sasha.
Sasha who's a woman who also claimed to be a prophetess. You know what her claim was? What's her justification?
When you hear it, it's no different today. She said, Well, how come there's no female prophets?
We don't have denotes equality, I have to have female prophets. So I'm a prophet test. And she used the Hadith of the Prophet peace be upon him, which says, Learn a BM in body. There is no profit after me. In Arabic, the mask you have masculine and feminine terms. Nabhi is masculine, maybe yeah, maybe yeah, tone is feminine. He meant no profit whatsoever. So she goes, he said no, in OB, he didn't say then it'd be a turn a female. Here I am. And she was also a magician. And she married this guy will say lemma. So two prophets married each other. Lots of prophets galore. I was just sending lots of prophets whatever anyone can be a prophet. And really till today we still have
people who claim that there are prophets we have the Ahmadiyya movement who say that they are Muslim they believe in everything you and I believe in except one of the main differences they say there is
you know, there is another prophet after Muhammad Salah Salem who come and he's not the last prophet and I'm missing the interpret the Quranic verses in their own way and in that make it sound so intellectual and I don't know what
but anyway, and they believe a lot and they believe in this guy named Maddie of hula
hula Muhammad I think that's what they're called Ahmadiyya from Pakistan who passed away they said he was the MADI the Messiah.
Subhan Allah. Anyway, let's move on.
Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu
also knew of a third one, his name was Palais de la has a companion he said, I'm a prophet. Everybody now wants to be a prophet. They want to make money the One Power
so what are they underwent and fought every single one of them because they were ready to fight him. He obviously obliterated to lay his army until they ran away and then repented and went back to Islam. And he was sincere, and he made up for his wrongs. As for Sasha, and musei lemma. Oh, look at the Alon who took the Muslims with Khalid Adnan Walid. You guys know Walid right?
There is no commander or men
after Muhammad Salah Salem
as great of a commander and warrior like highlighted manually and no mother has given birth one like him and historians Muslim non Muslims they vouch for that he is an amazing, amazing man when he came to warfare and Commander Khalid bin Walid
he went with him and they fought the people who didn't pay zakat until they started paying it and it's still some people who have postulated they ran away every so order was brought back. But the war between them and we'll say limit is called Merica Talia mama, your mama battle in that the majority of companions and a lot of Muslims and a majority of the memorizers of the Quran went there. It was a very fierce battle 500 of the memorize of the Quran. were martyred. You might think that's not a lot because we have billions we have millions today Masha Allah, but you're talking about Medina and a little bit of Muslims. Having 500 is like saying today 500 million.
No one, not many people would memorize the whole Quran. They were killed, and many of the companions were killed. 1200 among them companions and muscles were killed in his battle was fierce. Khalid when when it comes in by himself goes through the army one men through the entire army of Messiah 11 gets to the fortress, and one man
knocks out 1000s of warriors to the point when we say llama and the rest of his army went behind the fortress in the head
over the fortress with the Muslims obliterated them and killed Muslim.
Now you're gonna hear a lot about hoping that leads in the story of in the life of Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu to the point where you're gonna, you're gonna forget about, forget about four. And what's his name? The guy that clicks what's his name?
One with the rings, fan OS.
Forget about who else? Come on. Who else all these other dropkicks whatever whoever they are.
This hardware was a real man. He didn't need a cape. He was real.
And I'd love to talk about him in sha Allah and give him some time.
Anyway, what happened to him? Well, it was also a little bit harsh. It's tough when he came to
A war and like a lamb when it came to the poor and the weak is very tender with the poor. Tough with the war sometimes he went overboard sometimes but he was very strategic no one could beat him Masha Allah.
What happened was that
he took some prisoners
and the prisoners were cold and shivering.
So he said, so he was leading one of the one of the armies. He ordered the guards to warm them up.
Now in Arabic that has two meanings, warm them up literally. Or warm them up means kill them.
They misunderstood him they went and killed them. They executed the prisoners in Islamic law to kill the prisoners.
And hug well it felt sorry. And he said, copper Allah, Masha.
Allah has decreed we cannot change it or anything. The complaint got to Abu Bakr, the Allahu anhu, about what Khalid had done in mistake. And they said he has to be punished by Omar and Omar, they want to insist that as well because it has to be punished for his mistake. But we'll go to the man who said, Oh, Omar Khan, it made a mistake, in interpretation of words. And he is the unsheathed sword of Allah. He is safe Allahumma slewed and the prophet named who am I to make it disappear. When I make the sword of Allah and shave disappear.
I will Buckaroo himself went and paid blood money to that tribes parents, the leader of that particular tribe was mad. Malik had been Namira. So tribe that had followed Messiah and he paid the blood money and sorted it out. You guys can see how we'll look at the hola Juan was truly a leader, you got the big, big, big companions opposing him and he was he knew exactly what needed to be done.
So, his choice of being the Khalifa was not coincidental in the opinion of many scholars past and present, and when you look at his life and what how it all unfolded, you can see as if he was placed there for that short time deliberately because of the type of people he had to deal with had it been Ahmad had been off man had been Eileen had been anyone else, you would not get the same result.
My dear brothers and sisters
this is basically the story of what I wanted to talk to you about today.
One more thing, I want to say important notes, and we'll finish it with this. Before Abu Bakr, the last one who sent the armies. He gave fear and just orders of the battle. Check what he said. He said soldiers of Islam out of fear Allah under all conditions. Number two only fight the ones left Islam and fallen trapped to the shaytaan. They're the ones who are fighting Islam now, give them chance to repent before drawing out their swords. If they returned to Islam during the fight to the commander of a ceasefire and give them the terms of Islam, rights and duties once again. They must be given their rights and duties in full command the commander must keep his soldiers from hasty
actions and mischief. Soldiers must not plunge into enemy settlement until all precautions of civilians safety and soldiers safety is made. The commander is to always be kind and considerate to his men look to their comfort and use gentle speech. You might be asking, but who cares if they left Islam, brothers and sisters, let me tell you something. I wrote a big article.
Someone asked me this question. I'm part of Subhanallah they're going to kill me there's a group of brothers and sisters we used to teach now mashallah the academics and they set up a website.
I'm one of the people who writes the I forgot the name the whole load.
I hope they're not here. It's recorded. It's recorded. I'm finished. Okay, so
I hope it's vasila I think it's Bossy, Bossy, it's new, relatively new. We've got a few scholars there and both men and women who answer different questions and I take care of some of these tough questions, the modern day questions and I got asked about apostasy and how is that justified without right a big article? I can't talk about it now because you know a shirt, but I can tell you something simple apostasy those those is not like apostasy today. There has to be certain conditions for it to be the type of crime that you would fight them or possibly execute them. And there are conditions to that. And I don't know how much you know about political science again.
So the founders of liberalism.
They also say in their letters that
The Jews, the Israelites, they said, have a right to execute the apostates in right of law because they operate their country by their Torah or by their religion. So he, the father of liberal liberalism, John Locke, I don't know if you've ever heard of him.
He said that it is akin. It's like, treason.
But it depends on the society and the environment. So if today now someone leaves Islam, you don't do anything to them. Because they are not a threat to Islam or Muslims, not a threat.
It becomes a personal choice. It's got nothing to do with the safety and protection of the civilians.
it's not considered treason. There's nothing treason about it. In those days, when a person left Islam, they would join the wilderness necessitate to join an army against the Muslims and they become combatant.
But if a woman left Islam, they didn't execute her under the Hanafi madhhab. They don't. And they are given a chance to talk about what happened. Were they forced? Are they pressured? Are they weak, even if they repent? And they lied about it? We've got to let them go. So the circumstances are very different today apostasy the execution apostates today does not apply because the circumstances are not there. Anyway, it's called basura. If you want to look it up, in sha Allah, we have
all the that article well researched, Footnotes References everything's there for you inshallah. Alright, brothers and sisters, I thank you for listening in sha Allah next week. We're going to talk about the next phase very important phases. Now coming up, we're going to talk about how the Quran was compiled. And how do we know that we have the real program with us today? To the last letter, let's learn the story of that, followed by some other matters with hotter than midway leads some amazing things coming up, followed by the end life of Abu Bakr, the Allahu Anhu and the election of the new Khalifa how there was SallAllahu ala Nabina Muhammad while early he was
