Conversion of Khalid Ibn Alwalid, Prophet invites Kongâs and Empirers of the world, first battle against the Romans (Muâtah), Makkans break the Treaty of peace
So that was Salam ala rasulillah Allahi wa sahbihi. My brothers and sisters in Islam, back again to the seat of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And we've spoken a lot. We are now at the number 33 of the CETA topic.
And we've come towards the end inshallah, so I'm going to focus on the major occurrences and what I think matters to us today. Any lessons that we can extract that will benefit you and me, we can benefit our community. I will talk about them in sha Allah Allah. So I think we're looking at maybe three more,
three more classes after this, and then we'll have a break. And then inshallah we'll see what other series we can come up with. But I will, I will. I'll be busy for a little while after this one and inshallah we'll return. If you want to tune into my Facebook page, I will have
I'll have dates to share already for you. I'm announcing Charlotte, Crystal mosque. Facebook page also has it. So we'll find a way to get it out to you and share online you'll find it.
I want to talk to you about where I left off last time, and we're going to move on from the incident of the Battle of haven. Do you remember the Battle of Faber that we spoke about two weeks ago? And then we had a break we talked about the youth issues and now Shall I continue from what happened after the Battle of fiber.
So, after conquering favor, and establishing the peace treaty with the Mexicans
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
had eaten some food from haber.
From a Jewish woman who had invited him.
He trusted what she said but unfortunately, she had poison in that food.
After he ate from that poison, we spoke about that last class. I also some of them said
that he felt the pain of this poison in his stomach. He felt the pain of it in his body which lasted
till his death.
So this happened in about the end or the beginning of the sixth year of hegira.
And then for the next five years, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam kept feeling the pain every now and then. And there is a famous quote from the prophets of Allah Selim at the time of his death.
When he used to say to his wives, and to others who could hear him and I bet the law, his uncle's cousin, uncle, son, others, he used to say to them,
listen to as you do alum of time and let him tell to whom
I can still feel the pain of the food poisoned food that I ate in Halo. Five years later had his deathbed salamati was ending.
And that's why some companions including our beloved nobelist Dylon, he says, we assume that the promised land was Shaheed Mata,
from the poison of the woman in favor infinity.
And there was a combination of other sicknesses that also SLM went to, but this is one one quote one narration that they think some survivors thought that he had died a Shaheed a martyr, a martyr is somebody who is either murdered
or dies protecting his family or the family or protecting their wealth or property. Ushahidi is also a person who has died drowning, or person who dies burning, or a person who dies from a permanent illness. In the olden days, they call upon the whole MSA, it's equivalent to cancer and the likes of it, terminal illnesses.
A person who is murdered
a woman who dies while giving birth.
It's a it's a sense of shahida highest status, that they are privileged on the Day of Judgment with special privileges that others don't get.
The highest form of a Shahid Mata is somebody who is killed in the cause of a law. They're going to do something in the path of Allah to protect Muslims to uphold Islam,
to fight in a battle to protect and defend Islam and Muslims against the enemy.
And the highest form of Shaheed is one as the professor SLM said Messiah IDs which is in Bukhari and Muslim and the highest form of a person
dies as a Shaheed as high status is someone who says a truthful word in front of a tyrant ruler.
Somebody who he knows or she knows that if they were to say the truthful word that will save or protect people or liberate whatever it is, and he or she knows that they could die from his tyrant ruler. And they are killed in that cause by saying a word of truth is the highest form of martyrdom, shaped.
So it was also a pseudonym was considered by some competitor of Dr. Shaheen in the cause of Islam after the Battle of haber from the Jewish woman who poisoned this food.
Then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, he ignored the pain and has to continue in his mission.
He sees the opportunity of the Treaty of Sedalia remember the Treaty of peace, no more wars, no more battle, no more attack between the Muslims and the Mexicans, and had been in hostility right up to this point from the moment the Pulitzer Center had began his message as a prophet of God.
And they were allies to the Muslims and allies, to the Americans. In the terms of the treaty, it meant that even the allies, the Allies means the people who have a peace treaty with someone, they defend them if they were attacked. And if whoever gets attacked, the other allies have to defend them. One of the allies of the Muslims was called venue who's out the facade people. And some of them had embraced Islam. And some of them didn't. They remained on idolatry, but they were all allies to the center. And the Muslims. There was another group called Ben Bucher, you don't have to learn the names, but just so that we can identify them. So the story can make sense. They were the
allies of Mexicans, anyone who attacks by Nova then they are attacking America with a textbook as a tactical bucket like that.
So what happened?
left there, and he sees this opportunity to do what?
To give the power to the people outside of Arabia, all of Arabia now knows about Islam and the seller had opened the door for anybody who embraces them without harming anyone.
And so the process of setting them seize the opportunity to send letters, he sent letters to the people outside of Arabia to the kings, and the Emperor is of the world. Dharma of Islam is not restricted to your people. Because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Mohammed Salah, send them Why is he called the seal of the Prophet the end of all, Prophethood because Allah spent Allah has sent him the last prophet of all of them to the entire world, every prophet before the prophets of Allah I sent him Hamlet, so I sent him Jesus, Moses, Abraham, the woods with a man, Yusuf Ali, salaam, yaku. All of them all of the prophets before what are they sent to their own people, their own tribes,
they weren't preaching to people outside of their tribes. And there were one Hadith, which is sorry, it says that there are more than 100 and something 1000 prophets that was sent to people before Muhammad SAW Allah, Allah said in no code, what it meant.
The Ayah which means
when Korea 1011 Lf eternity, there isn't a single city or town or people except that a water came to them, a Prophet came to them.
Allah says in the Quran, some messengers we have sent messengers and prophets and messengers, we have told you their names and some we haven't some prophets, we have told you their names. Some of them we haven't, some of them spoke to Allah, some of them didn't. We only know for example, that musala said, I've spoke to a lot but there were more prophets who spoke to a lot a lot spoke to them directly, because Allah said it in plural plurality. He also said there are many other property messengers. The point is brothers and sisters, we only know 26 of them that Allah mentioned in the Quran, but there are many more. But Mohammed salado said in the specialty about it was that he was
the only prophet sent to the entire world, including the humans and the genes you will notice right?
and mercy as a law causing his mother is
his title, His mercy to all the worlds, to the animals to the insects, the genes to the birds, the trees, to the humans, to everyone, all the worlds.
So he sent these letters to all these kings, the emperor of Rome, the emperor of Persia,
the ruler of Yemen, which was under the rule of Persia.
The The rule is of other parts of Arabia, just outside of the rulers of Egypt, the coptics, which was under the rule
In Empire, the ruler of a sham, greater Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria that we know about today, parts of Turkey, and Jordan, this is all called channel to the Romans, the, the Christians, the Romans, they were occupying them sent letters to the rule as though occupying that there were Arab Christians,
for associate or seven did not leave a single Emperor or king that he could reach except that he sent messengers with letters to them. And his letters all said the same thing. Almost it said, from Mohammed, the Messenger of Allah, to someone so the great, the great Emperor, the great king, of such and such a place, that's how the senate addressed them. He didn't address them by their name, he addressed them by their title that they are called. So he gave honor and respect to the title and status of people.
And when you win the process and gave down to these people, and he mentioned their status, is telling them in a way that they shouldn't be threatened. When he calls someone the Emperor the great,
right? Alexander, Alexander the Great. He records the great, write these words, he's telling them in other words, you remained the great even after embracing Islam, I don't want your kingdom and you can rule in your kingdom. You don't have to do anything. But I'm the Messenger of God calling into Islam out of the darkness into the light. So used to say from Mohammed, the Messenger of Allah first his name to the great emperor of such and such a place, and he will say, as salaam alaikum, Anita aguda peace be upon who ever follows the right guidance.
He can't say to them as salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato as if they're Muslim.
He can't and he can't say to them and not not say salaam aleikum. So he wants to send peace upon them, but doesn't want them also, to understand as if you are now allies of the Muslims and we accept you as you know, one of us while staying on your religion, it doesn't work that way. So he chose a middle ground as salam O Allah, Allah, Allah Buddha, peace be upon those who follow the right guidance. Another reason the Prophet I send them said, Peace be upon those who follow the right guidance was because they also were risky enemies.
There is no peace contract with the seller. So now the problem is we run them has to be political with them. Why? Because if I take you back in those days, that's how everybody was, whoever strong can legally attack and take over a country, a nation of people that earn a commission, that was a universal law, anyone can do that, having Islam come in, obviously, a bit from attacking with unjustly, but he had to sort of fit in somewhere to protect itself. So the Muslims had to do the same.
They can attack
or pick up a war with someone, and they don't have a peace treaty with but before they do that the difference between Muslims and the rest of the world was that they had to give them three options first, number one, invite them to Islam. If they interest them, they keep their kingdom and they are in a peaceful treaty with them, their brothers and sisters, that's it.
Number two, if they don't accept that they pay attacks, the type of text called the jizya.
And that text is not just a text to benefit the Muslims. It's a type of assurance. You pay us that and we will give you enough in exchange, it comes with it. It comes with something in exchange, they're buying something basically and what they're purchasing is the Muslims have to protect them with their resources, their army, their soldiers, and they become almost like allies. They're not actually allies, but they're like else What is it they have a peace treaty together? If they attack the other people, the Muslims defend them, and if they attack, but they don't have to defend the Muslims in return,
and there is peace between them.
So they're offered that if they don't accept that, and the GCR is texting is really like it was how much did I say last time? One dinar per person per month, one dinar per citizen per month when dinar is like $1 or something, something like that. I'm just guessing something very small.
And if they don't accept that no peace treaty, so they don't interest them and the peace treaty was done that way. Thirdly, it means you're an open enemy. Either your attacker will attack you. We're not safe. So proximal I sent him sent these letters to them, and he would say, I invite you to unlock and to worship Him alone, and your kingdom remains yours. Your Kingdom remains yours.
So if anyone wants to say, well, Mohamed Salgado said that he was going out to take over the world and make people convert by the sword, this is not true. Because the terms of it all, and the conditions of it in those days are very different. You know, it's not like those who saw Selim invited them to Islam, and he said, you keep your kingdom. Like we don't, we won't interfere. But you become Muslim, and you invite your people to Islam, you don't force people to become something that I want to.
And if not pay the jizya just so that, you know, we know that we are at peace. If not, then we're gonna have to fight because not because either fight or become Muslim. It was because now we're open. We're vulnerable, like everyone else. I mean, this was no different, you have to understand that unlike everyone else, they'll be open to being attacked, they have to also protect themselves. So everybody did it. It's not like today where you can enter into a world convention, or some kind of a
universal, what's it called that there are new laws that come in place, and they want countries to be signatories to it. I mean, there's alternatives for peace, then fine. But in those days, they didn't have that. My brothers and sisters in Islam, what happened
to them sent these letters to these different imprison kings, some of them accepted Islam. Some of them didn't accept, nor did they reject. So they offered a peace treaty. And some of them
they were open enemies, they called for war.
The ones who accepted some of them are at the senior Ethiopia and the joshy negus, who accepted Islam.
The other one was
the other one, there were others. They were mainly from outside of Arabia, as I said, Who's accepted. And there were other Arabian tribes and sub Arabian tribes outside you don't need to know the names because the names are forgotten. And
the other one who embraced Islam was the ruler of Yemen. under the rule of Persia, this rule of Yemen was a Persian man, he was a great king, and he was a nephew of the Persian Emperor in Persian, because this was the biggest superpower. And this man, his name was better than if you remember 15 lessons ago, I talked about it. There then took over Yon, and he was the ruler, the Persian Emperor, making the rule of it, the purpose of that I sent him sent a letter to him, inviting him to Islam.
And then at first didn't wasn't hostile, but it also didn't accept Islam. And the Prophet peace be upon him sent a message to him, saying to him, if you think that your Persian Emperor is going to harm you, if you do embrace Islam, because he felt bad that he was a man of intelligence, then know that your Persian Emperor, your uncle, has died.
The Persian Emperor has died.
And then it takes three months to get that news. How could this messenger come with a letter from the crumpsall, I sent him three months earlier, before his kingdom, Uncle dies, and tells him your uncle's dead.
He had died three days before the messenger got there. It's impossible for anyone to notice that that goes, hold on, let me find out. He sends His messengers. They go for about nearly a month to get to Persia, and he finds out that his uncle was dead on this particular day, three days before the lyric got to exactly as the date the time that the principal said, I'm told him, he will die, or he has died. He said he died three days ago, and a letter was sent three months ago, he arrives in Yemen. He gets the letter that then reads it and his letter says three days ago.
How did the process last? I don't know this
when he founds out better than says Nomad can notice information except for profit from God, he must be a prophet. And so he embraces Islam, and all of them and now is Muslim. And that's where the promise of our segment is to make up for the people of Yemen. He used to say things like Morocco, have eaten while Europa Luba. They have the softest of hearts, and the most easygoing of approach and you still till today you go to the Yemenis. And you find that the Yemen is a very soft and kind approach. He used to make the app for the Yemen's of Allah bless our Shannon bless our Yemen.
So it's a special place in
as for the, the emperor of Persia, he was he was he was very bad from Salah Selim sent the letter, the messenger gets to him, and what does he do with it?
He reads it. From Muhammad, the messenger, the messenger says, from Muhammad, the Messenger of God,
to the great emperor of Persia, before he can even continue the words the emperor of Persia got so angry, furious, he says, me the great emperor of Persia. He puts His name
Before mine in the letter, my name should be before he should say to the great Emperor from Mohammed. But not he said from Mohammed, this messenger of God to the great Emperor, he grabs the letter rips it and steps on.
The news gets to the proxy law said that from the message on the Prophet peace be upon him made it to I can still set my alarm, rip your kingdom apart, as you have read this, this is a this is unimportant universe, you never rip the messengers message, you don't harm the messenger, everybody knew this. And so panela the Emperor dies,
and promises them sends that letter, the letter reaches the human person. And truly the Persian kingdom was ripped apart by the Muslims later on, by the Muslims themselves.
My brothers and sisters in Islam
is an interesting one, he sent a letter to
in the in Egypt, they were called the coughs or the coptics. They were the pots talks about the existence. The coptics are Christians.
Well, they don't belong to Rome, they're just Egyptians. They've been living there for centuries and centuries in ancient
but they're very ancient civilization, the court coptics they are Christian belief. And the prophets of Allah settlement acknowledged their presence in agent.
He sends a letter to the Emperor, the ruler of the clocks, his name was
Chris Alba caucus
row, it was under the rule of Rome.
And the Proxima seldom did the same as he did with the other rulers.
And this particular man called this intelligent man, he was impressed by the lecture. He liked the letter from the province of Milan, I listen. And he, he was very impressed that to the king of Ethiopia embraced Islam, he was very impressed that the king of Yemen had embraced Islam. And all he did was this he asked the messenger, the peroxisomes, companion who went there.
I think his name was hunted by the law. He says to him, if he is the messenger of God, and this is what his people did to him, the what could have been asked God to destroy his people or to do something to them. You know, if he's the messenger,
and the messenger the the heart of Nagaland says to and will focus this ruler of Egypt, the Coptic, he says to him, You believe in Jesus Christ says, Yes. He says, I can ask you the same question. Why didn't Jesus Christ, ask God to destroy his people for what they did to him, the children of Israel, the Jews, and that's when he understood, he didn't do it, because the Prophet is a mercy to his people, doesn't make God like that against these people. And that's when he said, fair enough. Now, he didn't embrace Islam because he was afraid of his people. And the Romans, instead, he says to the messenger says, Go back to your prophet. And I have always known that a prophet is going to come out
in a share. I didn't know from Arabia. So I kind of believe but I can't embrace Islam. But take these gifts with this is very interesting. He took with him some gifts from the king. This was a very normal thing. They used to do that between rulers. He sent with him a new, a new like a donkey, but one of the mules from the king. And he sent with him another animal, a donkey donkey and a mule as a president. It's a very normal thing. It's a very prestigious Actually, he sent him a couple of guns. And these guns they sold most of us end up wearing them and some of them have a little bit of silk in them. A little bit of silk lining in them, yet approximately seven more and this is
interesting to know from a corporate perspective, that the proxy Lavasa lamb once took up, he held gold in his hand and he held silk and silk material silk, you know, silver and gold. And he said to his companions, these two have been permitted
upon the men
of men are not allowed. The men have reached puberty, males will reach puberty men, they cannot wear gold on the skin or silk color for the women of mine.
But here the Proxima SLM is wearing a guard with a bit of silver.
And what this is evidence that you're allowed to wear something with a bit of silver or wear something that has a bit of gold in it, but you're not allowed to have full gold or full silk. You might wear a tie for example, a bit of silk in a shirt that has a silk pocket for example, or silk lining, that's okay. You wear a piece of a ring for example that has a little bit of gold in it, that's fine.
But to take all those goals silk
he also sent with him another gift to
They call them concubines. a concubine is someone, a woman, usually, who in the olden days, maybe still exist. Now in some parts of the world with this extreme war. When the war happens and you conquer a land, there are women and children who become the captives of war, they got no home, no place. So the Muslims, what they do is, they take them into their care. And the way they have to take them to their care in those days, especially was either slaves and they owned by masters, so that they don't become public property so that they do not become public property. I know it's very hard for you to understand. Because we're living in Australia, what do we know? We're inside of a
box, all we watch is channel nine, seven and 10. And that's about it commercials when we think the whole world runs that way, brothers and sisters, think again, and the world is like a whole different planet tuned to Australia. If you're from America, you have no idea what's going on outside the world, but it's a total different world out there. And if you study history, you will see that the world was nothing like today. So that's why some people ask these questions because they don't know the history. Well. So concubinage was very normal. Slavery was very normal Islam, acceptance, slavery and concubinage. But what it did was it placed rules that has never existed.
They have to treat them like the family that the feeder for they feed their own family that they clothed them like that they have to treat them like their brothers and sisters. They have to be confident that they can work themselves to free themselves they can and so on. You need something mister make some of them rulers or commanders have a whole army and they were slaves. Send them lifted the status. So this was unprecedented. He can't slap a slave. He can't Hama concubine. He can't do anything like that. And what a concubine was was women who were captives of war. They were
casualties of war. And what used to happen was that different kings and emperors and ran all around the world and soldiers and people used to have them and they have no other option. These women, that's the only way they could survive six days to settle with an accepted. So this man is king he had to compromise. The names were married.
And Shireen, Mary and her sister shareen.
It's a famous thing, Marissa, Marissa, the Coptic. She was a Christian. And the king gave them to as a gift the professor send them
the Send them, received them from how thick it was the messenger on the White House have made doc our invitation to these two women and they embraced us. They're very clear of the law and sharing or the Aloha, they accepted Islam. shareen went and became a concubine to another container has sent him a cervix. And by the way, if you go back to those days, they accepted this even this woman accepted it and they lived happily with him not like today. You can't have a concubine today, man, you can't.
You know, having just one wife these days, it's hard.
It's miserable, because that doesn't exist right now. But it used to exist them and in some parts of the world today. So this woman Marian copia, however, she accepted to be
concubine. Mo concubine means that she has a high status, almost like a wife, but not quite. But she's not less than that. So she has a status almost like a wife. Therefore, the correct opinion is that Maricopa was not one of the mothers of the believers. But she was the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And she embraced Islam. She loved the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and she was honorable, valued, she was beautiful, and the Lord gave him a child from him. His name was Ibrahim
Rasul Allah never had any boys children, in fact, never have any children except from her.
And her two boys from Milan and four girls. But the boys all died, the four girls survived to play Xena, and Falcon nine and hoonah and then Allah gave him to throw him a boy from the province Hello as lm loved him so much. But by the age of 18 months, Ibrahim struck a disease and he died. The prophets of Allah Selim his daughter named him Ebrahim. When he was born, he says, I want to name him by my father's name, his father's name, they brought him in and he said, that means the great, great, great grandfather of the body.
So he named him Abraham out of love for his great, great, great, great, great grandfather.
He died at the age of 1218 months, so Panama
and out of love for many of the people and out of love for his son. He said, If I had made my son live, I would release all of his uncle's, his uncle's meaning his wife's married couple years, brothers. I think they were captives.
Somehow, but what he said he said this and he also said,
there is a lineage between us and the Egyptians, the coptics of Egypt.
Right, so be kind to them and treat them well. He used to tell us companions, treat them well, and be kind to
They are related to us the Egyptians from Ibrahim Ali Salim side
and from Hazzard aleyda Selim son.
And when he married when he got married when he took married as his concubine in those days, as I told you is legitimate, it was acceptable universally. Then he also gave kindness to the Egyptians because of her as well. So he created that harmony. My brothers and sisters in Islam when Ibrahim died, his son, the process of I send them when and buried him in a bottle and he cried so long
as he was burying him, he carried him solo acid. And he said to him,
the eyes tear and the hearts are saddened to your loss of a Brahim. Obviously, Abraham can't hear him. But it's just a metaphor. It's a rhetorical question, a rhetorical sort of statement, you say that you're allowed to say that.
And he said, but the words the tongue does not say anything except what pleases Allah. And this is the common thing. This is the Sharia that if somebody passes away, you can cry. You can say words of remembrance, but you do not slap yourself or tear your hair or tear your clothing or say words that are blasphemous, they're against the last minute, why did you do what am I ever done? This is the choice of Allah. It's a test of your faith. So Pamela, so my brothers and sisters, he buried Abraham. And he threw some dust even though the first time that companions saw him throw soil over and it becomes a sort of an out of throw soil over a person that you've buried, and walked away. One
little incident happened, which I think is worth mentioning here to you. When they went to bury the process. And I'm son, coincidentally, coincidence, science and the way the solar system works. There was a lunar eclipse, there was a lunar eclipse, you know what a lunar eclipse is, right?
It's when what?
When the moon goes in front of the sun, okay, nice rotation. So what happened was that there was a lunar eclipse, the sun was Eclipse, and some people's on the companions are still had, we're still learning about Islam, they still have the mind of God, he did still kind of think of superstitions, superstitious beliefs. They said the sun was Eclipse to the death of the Prophet son.
This is a problem now. If the seller had not addressed this and let it go, today, we will find people maybe calling his son a prophet or even worshipping or worshipping the sun, or calling the eclipse as a miracle that is attached and probably would have made an anniversary folder and a kind of a lead and a type of worship, causing shift. That's why in Islam, superstitions are forbidden Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he forbids superstitions. He forbid, territory being he forbid palm reading. He forbid people who believe in amulets and things like that you're hanging around your neck, the blue eye and I don't know what the rabbit's foot and knocking on wood and throwing salt
behind your back are good luck and bad luck stuff. All this is rejected by stem there are no superstitions in Islam. We have no superstition. We have optimism, optimistic but we don't have superstition. We don't have pessimism of optimism but no pessimism and we have no superstition. superstitious beliefs are a form of ship. They're a minor form of ship, which lead to a large form ship. Anyone who goes to a fortune teller to tell them things that only Allah knows and believes what they say has become a disbeliever this hadith in Bukhari and Muslim authenticating and whoever goes to fortune teller, but does not believe what they say but just listens out of interest. 40 days
of the prayer will not be accepted this hadith in Bukhari and Muslim why because you are promoting and giving value to these people to continue their work. But if you want to learn about them in order to warn people from them, like you're right about what horoscopes are about, on a fortune telling about in order to teach people to stay away from it, then that's okay. For pure knowledge in order to
warn people or to learn itself, so don't fall into it. Brothers and sisters in Islam we move on.
But also we'll address this and he said, The sun has only eclipsed because of natural occurrences even said the word natural occurrences. It is the law of a law in the universe that the sun has eclipsed power. So as I was talking pure science,
pure science and that's why I tell a lot of my brothers and sisters, especially as a teacher, we teach the students there's not much contradiction. In fact, Islam and science separately can't use science to prove Islam. And you don't use Islam to prove science, science as a separate study. You certainly can't use science to prove God. The moment you use science to prove God is the moment that you disprove God because Allah cannot be proven by science. You can use science, the system of science and how science works to say so Panama there is an order there is a system there.
Cause and Effect, this cannot happen without a designer. Science is a design itself. So you can use science to show you that a lot exists. By the way, the way science is, when you discover how the world works and how it always works in an order, an order cannot happen without a designer and the designer has to be infinitely intelligent to create all of this. Otherwise, it would be all haphazard all over the place. The laws of the universe, the laws of cause and effect the laws of order the laws of all of this stuff, right?
these are the laws Otto has written in the world. It's a normal natural occurrence has nothing to do. Like one person, he might be walking on a footpath. He sees a girl across the road. He says, Oh my God, my heart dropped.
Who is that girl who is that girl she passes by and they can ever forget it. So he pauses his hypnotized.
After she goes, he comes to walk looks down at the floor and finds a 20 cent coin under his foot.
So picks up his 20 cent coin says, This is my good luck. Good luck. And he keeps his 20 cent coin forever. Right? Maybe goes and marries that woman, let's say. And every time they have a fight, for example, says Damn, I didn't have my 20 cent coin I lived around at home. That's why I had a fight. So it starts believing the 20 cent coin has some kind of powers. This is how it all begins. Brothers and sisters. You find people have got absolute common sense. They can't believe in stuff like that. A bird flew
A bird got a car passed, the breeze went past a good sign. We believe in good signs a breeze pass we say this is a good sign. It means that they attach their heart to it and saying this is an omen for that.
Right such as people who hold like a string and say this is my good luck string and my good luck charm my good luck, whatever. A stone or something like that.
Anyway, brothers and sisters in Islam what happened next Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam then sent a letter to wreckless, the emperor of Rome. The Christian
hierapolis liked the message. And he was almost about to believe. But he said I fear my people.
So, what happened to the king of Rome?
He just said look,
you know, this man is is a is a trustworthy man. And
these are signs of prophethood.
He said that to the messenger. Series people have kicked him out.
Then people have followed him.
He has received the book words from God, His character is such and such. He accepts gifts but will not accept charity. He's got the seal of profitable behind his neck
to his shoulder blades. This directly this guy knew about Christianity. So he said he must be a prophet, but he refused to embrace Islam. So he had kind of a heart for but so Pamela you'll see later on that he still fought the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
In this time, my brothers and sisters, someone
embraces Islam, who brings glory and might to the Muslims till the end of time. His name is Khalid
has never lost the battle in his life. An amazing tactician in war. Very smart, very cunning, very intelligent in warfare, and very smart in normal life. extremely strong, tall, broad shouldered, broad chested. He used to be able he and a sorbet, that were the only two companions who used to fight with two swords at once. And on their feet. They never rode a horse and forth. They wrote a horse but they always used to
get off their horse. Before they would fight. They will always fight on their feet with two swords and no shield him and so back to the law on whether the only companions worries that did this.
And if he was on his horse, some company said we used to see Hi buddy never fighting or sitting on his horse. One time we saw him on his horse, but he was standing standing on his horse while fighting the two swords.
Then he jumped off it and he was fine with it, but it is something out of this world.
And the when he died on the amount one of the more there is a famous statement that poems polled said and women said they said no mother will ever give birth to the likes of Harley.
Truly, and Russel Wallace Assalam called him safe allow him to miss Newton. The unsheathed Sword of a lot. If you're going to face him in a battle, you've got no hope with him. He will never lose a battle.
And the sort of a lock had never be broken so hard nobody could never be defeated. That's what happened when he never died in a battle, he fought more than 70 battles. He had more than 70 wounds in his chest was not one on his back. Which means he never turned his back on the enemy, always at the front. And when he came to his deathbed, he said here I am. I have 14 more in every battle with the Bahamas alongside him after my embraces that in every battle that is that has ever been in it. And here I am. Every opportunity for me to die and death did not come to me. I wished for martyrdom and it never count to me. I wished for that and never came to me. I put myself in the face of death
and never came to me. And here I am dying. Here I am dying.
just like a pathetic
male camel. You know like about a sick like every other like a camel an animal dynamite difficult. That's how he hated it so much that he really was able to to die in battle. That was his dream. But he died out of sickness. He says like a, like a male can learn a new job Anna says made the eyes of the characters never sleep. You know, I every battle I was in I never died. They're afraid of death. And I was in every battle. Maybe either the cows never sleep. My brothers sisters, but he's he's special because the fella named in the soda law. And if he were to die in a battle, what is the same sort of Allah sort of a law gets broken. So a lot of us to hide money, the sword to die in a battle,
no one can defeat him. The way he embraces Islam, number one he couldn't memorize for and very well, they said that he only knew about seven soldiers to tensors. Some said 17 soldiers. So for the people who don't know more than 10 or 17 or 20 sorters. You know, at least you're doing other good work and handed in and not everybody has to memorize the court and that's fine. Why didn't I knew about 17 soldiers and they were the small ones. That's all he wasn't good at memorizing. But he was amazing in what he did best. And that is warfare and battles and tactician and tactics and that's how they that's how he brought glory. It is now actually my brothers and sisters in Islam.
She can ask all of you to switch on the lights behind him.
Can you can you grab just switch on the top lights.
You go now it's proof that my nor does not shine the place.
That increases Holy nordia. Brothers and sisters in Islam, call it mean when it says I heard about the sword that was inserted and what death is speaking about my father. I shall put him in Hellfire and he described him he swept and he said it's my phone. Because Islam was always in my mind. But I always used to avoid the Muslims I got to the mountains when they came to the hombre and I don't want to say them. But then I thought to myself, should I leave and go and join with the Persians or the Romans but then I would have to embrace their religion. I can't leave original my forefathers. Should I leave to ever senior the Ethiopians, but then I'll have to have become a Christian. But
hold on a minute and a joshy he had embraced Islam. How can I go there? Because I was in confusion. I didn't know where to go. And I knew after the Treaty of the day after the seventh sign the peace treaty. I knew huddling was the only one who could understand out of all the competitors, the promises and even while he was still a non Muslim, that this peace treaty was going to give the promise that our seven inevitable victory. All the other competitors didn't know. But he was the only one I understood. He said that pastry is going to give him inevitably a peace treaty and he said to one of his companions, he said a fox if he hides inside of his hole you put water in the
hole what happens to the fox? You wait you wait wait eventually you flood him and he's going to come out and that's what the Mohammed is doing to us right now. That peace treaty is the water in our in the hole and we are just like foxes waiting for us to come
in it was that much of an intelligent man. So he comes up to one of his companions software says you know, embrace Islam with me. Let's go to Mohammed you know, he's gonna take over the Arabs is gonna do this. Let's share with him. So Fine, guess what? He killed my father. I will not even if all rip embraces level nine. Right? So then he goes to his father. And he gets what my father was killed on a kill Muhammad. So he goes to another friend of his nameless man, the love of
another guy and he says let's embrace Islam together. And this man had his father and four brothers killed in the battle. But yet, he says you know what, you're right. Islam is intertwined. And the person who made Islam went into hiding when it was his brother.
He sent him a letter and says, Mohammed Solomon, I'll send them says he asked me about him, says what's he doing?
He is such an intelligent man that it does not be fit him to remain a non Muslim except to understand the know that Islam is the truth. He knows that but he's refusing to enter it. Why wouldn't it if he were to enter it?
I will make him the commander of everything I will give him a status that no one else has because he deserves it
is that much of an important man when he received that letter when it says, I then knew that something happened to me,
mentioning me giving me value. He recognizes and I do agree in his truthful
Islam entered my heart. I took this friend of mine Earth man, I went all the way to Medina. And then he saw
that already embraced Islam. He was coming back from Ethiopia. He says you've come to embrace Islam says yes to join you with automatic as they were entering, I think under the law and the others they saw him they said Mohammed Salim is waiting for his brother, sorry, says Muhammad wa sallam is waiting for him. Hybrid goes or went to the process of selling and I saw him at a distance. And a lot of all I saw is the process that I send them with the most massive smile on his face. He can smiling to me until I reached him, and his smile would not leave.
And he said, What have you come for your qualities that I've come to say? And then he said, a shadow in La ilaha illallah wa sallam hugged him very tightly. And he said to him sit down next to me. And he got really close to him and said, Yeah, find it. I always knew that you would embrace this, that it was just a matter of time because you are an intelligent person. And only really intelligent people know that is the truth. So the harmony that embrace the slap, not even five months later, the price of seven makes him a commander of one of the arts and this is how it happened. The next battle that happened now is called the battle
against the Romans, and another people called the assassin
assassin awards and Eric tribe those underground.
What happened? The assassin himself delivered to the king of assassinate people who were under the Roman in a shadow in greatest Syria. And he refused. He also ripped the paper up and across our Senate made it go up against
So what happened? The route he sent a letter to the king of Rome directly and relatives sent him 100,000 soldiers and assassins they will also 100,000 soldiers, including
50,000 horsemen warriors, the Muslims had no horsemen, only a few. So 200,000 soldiers mixed with the assassin Arabs and the Romans met to go and fight the Muslims. So send them prepared an army of 3000 soldiers 3000 now the story is so beautiful here. The Muslims had never had that amount of Army soldiers before 3000 soldiers huge massive and they set out among them was Abu Bakr Omar
all the great companions were with them
so the process of them gathered them and he said to them
your commander is saved
by the law
so I don't know how if that is the formally adopted son of a
son He is your commander. If he is slain if he's killed then let Jacques Attali be the next commander after him.
First cuz he loves him so much. He said if Jaffa is killed, then appoint of de la ignore Alicia
is from the answer, as was aid and Java from the mechanism of action. So the more closely related to the lesson, as Barbara is from a bit of a distance. And then the pros are sentiment silent. He didn't say who after.
And they set up on a Friday, tomorrow.
On their way they settled somewhere and shuffle. Nobody thought instead of praying Zuma within here, I'd like to go and get the rewards with Mohammed's low acid them. So he kind of thought when he went back a few kilometers, and he went to the Senate to print them out with them. For Schumacher. When he finished the process and looked at soulja boy he come back because I'm going back a little bit I wanted to get the rewards of Joomla with you in your machine. So the process of that I sent him said to him
well, what if you were to donate the amount of the world
It will never equal
the rewards of you being with your companions on that journey on jihad. This show Who told you that this Gemma Zuma with me in my mystery on Azuma is better than what you are. That's the value of what he was wanting to go on fight free seven and of course we're not.
So Java cried and asked him why are you crying? Since you're so low, I fear the fire
can you ask a law to
gift me with martyrdom, Shahada on this journey. So he made 270 left chocolate Ilana went
on their way.
They reached a place where they found out there were 200,000 soldiers meant 3000 soldiers and Muslims, I guess how many 200,000? Roman guess. So if you like to call them, people
with 50,000 horsemen, they can't be house 3000 gonna be 200,000 warriors.
Put the fear in the house of the enemy. They had heard news about the companions, especially the Romans, they started talking about these companions, that there are special people. They've got special genes, to the point where the emperor of Rome after the time of the law, I know he had captured a number of Muslims and an underwater club. And he used to ask, Is there any companions among them, because they have almost no idea. And he said, One day he is dead. And he said to him, I'll give you half of my kingdom. And then you can marry my daughter if you convert to Christianity. Why? Because he wanted him to marry his daughter, because they had this belief that they have a
special gene that he wants to marry his daughter and produce children who have the genes of the companions, so he can conquer the world for that's what they thought the companions were, they became legends, these companions.
And obviously, he refused. And there's a long story to that maybe one day we'll come to it. Anyway, the Romans had this idea of about these companions, who was with these companions as well, Harley had been one evil, they are not one club when it was not a commander. He was just with them.
So they reached this place, and they reached this town, which had narrow streets and buildings. So they asked the people to leave the town, any innocent people to die. But this was a strategic place, which Xavier the alignment of companions that got together in this particular place. And they turned it into a mosque and they created it today, they call it the mosque.
And you can still see it there. The mosque of Mata when they went to Makkah Mota is a place that towns called MCI. And that's where they face the enemies of the Romans, the Christians and the Arabs under the Christians. They prayed there, and they started to say counselors have to fight in this town because scenario plus 200,000 soldiers will find it difficult to fight us here. But we're only 3000 we can maneuver around.
And so they met the Romans there when the Romans arrived. The Muslims and the rebels, he was nice. So they slept, they didn't fight at night, and an official time the Muslim is the professor. The Christians didn't pray for him. So the Muslims would come out of prison at about 3:30am. And they will surprise the Rams by taking them. The first day surprised them in their tents, and that killed hundreds of them. Then they returned. The Romans thought what is 3000 soldiers killing our soldiers away when killing one of them.
So they started getting afraid. The next version of the 3000 soldiers all 3000 came out killed another few 100 of them increased to a few 1000 the Romans started getting scared. fourth day, fifth day, sixth day, more of them are dying out. They said what is happening here.
And so the Romans found out that these Muslims were strategic, they were using flash of time, which we don't wake up on, they said, so we're gonna prepare the night before and wake up professional before then.
And so on the seventh day, jobs a lot a lot more, took his army and found the Romans prepared for them. They fought tremendously. And obviously they were very strong 3000 were almost equal to about 100. About half of them are 100,000 that's how I felt they were. But unfortunately,
they weren't strong enough. At this point, what happened? The prophets Allah sent him still in Medina. He gathered the Muslims in the masjid, and whatever people could gather around him, and jabril la Salaam would make the most of them see what's happening. So it was like watching TV, or watching the internet live coverage, live coverage through Shangri La is the prompts are some startup telling them this is now happening. And this is now happening. And so he reached a point in Zeeland. On the seventh day, he has grabbed the flag is heading towards them. Oh, no. See, there's attacked. A group of them have surrounded him.
And what did they do?
Oh no. They killed Xavier the online and the flag fell. So the gun was attacked and he was killed. The flag phenom
Zayn is killed Zaid is martyred.
I can see him in
the process I'm starting to cry.
Jaffa carries the flag. The commander the proxy was a member he said if they dies who gets it? Jaffa Jaffa who grabs the flag. He gets off his
Horse and he starts the fight on his feet. The Roman soldiers rich Jaffa and they chop off his right arm, the flatforms he grabs it with his left arm, they chop off his left arm, the flat falls and Jaffa grabs it with half of his arms that was left. And they began to stare and cut job for the law more and more so much until they ripped him into two pieces. They came to two house
and he was two pieces just for
the purpose of the law while he was selling was describing this and he says Jaffa is matted. It can see him now. Allah has given him two wings in exchange for the hours which he lost wings made of pearls, and he is flying in general. And so he had the nickname Jafar the flying man of gender.
And he keeps these flying wings better until the day of judgment of the alarm.
When they came to get the body of job for the lawn, they noticed that were half of his body. It was stabbed with over 80 wounds before he died. It was a very courageous worry. For Sol Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam cried for his cousin, Joshua.
Next up de la Nora, the unsolved person, he knew that he now has to grab the flag. But it was from that one song. And the answer people that were sitting listening to the most of our seven, remember, I told you live coverage. And then they got nervous, they got one.
He's from the inside and you know that song still don't have that connection like them or hazards. So they figured he might hesitate and truly have to love but I looked up and he got a little bit scared, said how can I hold the flag? He hesitated a little bit. So at the moment, I stood up and he started making poetry against himself. Like he put himself into two people as if he's talking to himself. And he started telling himself saying, oh, pathetic song. How could you be cowardly right now? Do you not want Jenna? Are you now a coward? Get up use, you know, his thinking person stop fighting. And he started to really like abuse himself and motivate himself until he got himself to
grab the flag. And he charged in the law more and more as well. He attacks the Romans, and the Romans attacked him.
And he was killed as well, across the last segment said, of the law of Nineveh is a martyr. And I can see him. He is reclining on silk and gold in Jannah, but a distance away from Zaid and Java. Why distance away? Because he said he hesitated a little bit. Everybody receives the reward, according exactly to what they did. He hesitated. So he's not at the level of Java. But they'll move on. They'll say
now the flag is on the floor. There is no command, the process of Assalam didn't give a fourth commander. What are they to do?
The Muslims started to fall apart, they retreated and went back. And it was nightfall.
And a great warrior. He didn't want this to end. So he goes and grab the flag. His name was David wrote the law. And he had embraced the stamp a long time before.
What does he do? He grabbed the flag and hits off to call it admin.
And he says to him, yeah, Holly, take the flag and leave the army
and have said to him, but you are more valuable than me. You are older in Islam than me. I don't I don't I am not worthy of holding the flag. And third said to him, yes, I may be older than you in Islam. But you're more qualified than me for this mission.
What does this teach us? It teaches us this in our in Islam in our positions, no matter what community organization we have, what project we have.
The prophets of Allah send them toward us and his companions to also always look for the person who is most qualified for the position, not the one who is most valiant. We don't give positions to people who are more prestigious because they have a good name or a popular offer. They look so for their wealth or for their name, we look for the one who's most qualified, even if they are not most prestigious in the community. That's how the SNM dealt with these companions. And truly understood this
number is with them but no one even when it is the most qualified for this position, and knew the holiday winning will be the fourth commander he actually knew that but why did he stay silent?
Because if he had told him give it to holiday, they would have said exactly that. We have the most prestigious of sahabas with us and you want to give it to this manager and have been for four months. And he is the he is the reason why in the Battle of Watford your uncle Hamza. He was the reason why we were defeated.
If the processor had said that they would have obeyed the processor, but with hesitation, so what did he do? He lifted for their judgment for them to choose among themselves. And after they have seen what had happened to the three components before that. So that all called out. So they went into that council place that little mosque. And what happened? That said, I've given it 230, what do you think? And all the 3000 companions called that with one voice heard literally no other?
elected how to do it. And so they fought with courage with him. What did he do? He sat down that night thinking what tactics should we use, and this is what he did. This was when his tactics come in.
What he did was he rearranged the entire army, the right plank, he put him in the left plank, the left plank, you put him in the right and the ones at the front and put them at the back the ones at the back and put them at the front and the ones at the back. He said to them, I want you to walk away towards Medina until we cannot see you.
Keep walking until no one can see you no enemy nothing. And went for my command, there's a signal send someone to you to come in.
What is he doing? The next day they went to face the Romans. And what did the Romans expect? They expected the same faces the same structure. But what did they say? different faces, different structure. The right was in somewhere else the new faces the new structure, what did they think they thought that they had brought another armies a support double the amount, they were having a hard enough time with 3000 other 6000 but in fact, there was still the same.
And then suddenly, as they were fighting,
hardball, it sends the message to the other few with only a few 100
to come in. And the Romans saw them galloping on their horses with dust and they said, Oh my God.
We don't even know how many they are another reinforcement coming from Medina more. And so they got really scared go home when he was doing a chess game. It's just really,
it was just a bluff, getting work. And that's how it was fun when he was so smart.
So when I saw this, the Muslims were almost about to defeat, but about to destroy the commander and make the Roman flag fall, the presenting platform as hard money approached was about to kill the commander from when he was fighting the two swords on his feet. And everybody's saying why did the Romans they're avoiding him. No one wants to be around him. They got every time someone approaches this man. They die. Like he killed in the hundreds of spy stuff. And so he raised the flag the commander is looking at the person is holding the flag is looking at him with open eyes thinking I'm finished. The reminisce thinking is over and then suddenly fallen when he does something that was
unprecedented. he retreats and tells the whole army retreat, stop. And truly they went back. What happens to the Romans, they said don't believe in man, this is a trick. This is a trick is going to do something. So let's all just stay here and wait. Don't you dare matric Don't you dare go like that you did go after him. If you go after him, it's a trap.
And what you want to do, there was no trap. He just used this opportunity because he thought we're not going to be able to beat this army. Even if we made the flagpole they're going to realize what only a small amount and they're going to kill us. So how can I save these companies? I don't want a single life being lost. And this is not a war that we can win. So we need to retreat. But how can I do it without them realizing that we're a small army because then they'll come and massacre so he did this trick and then retreated. Right at the moment, the Romans thought they're gonna win. And he retreated to make them think that they were setting up a trap for them. So what did the Romans do?
They stayed where they are waiting, waiting, waiting, not able to retreat, not able to advance from money. The mentor text, the Army goes back all the way back to Medina. They go all the way back to their homes and they sit comfortably in the Romans away. They realize there's no harm. So what the heck has happened here, but they didn't know where to go. they retreated. It's four months journey to get to Medina.
When when it arrives in Medina, the people of Medina didn't like what they saw. They said you people are the retreaters you're cowards, you couldn't win. You couldn't do anything. You're not brave and have money than the army they started to feel bullied or hurt at this. So the promise of our seven stood up and he broke this rumor. He said, Well, we're lucky they are not retreaters they are repeaters. See Muslims, also Allah, Allah. He says in the Quran,
do not retreat unless you are going to plan to repeat and do not retreat until if you are half their arm if you are after a mountain retreat, but there are 3000 against 200,000.
That's nowhere near even, you know, a third of them and they had to retreat.
So Sam said no, no, no, this is karma.
This is a smart way of returning back. The what happened was that the Romans and all the other Arabs, they thought these people are very strong, he can't just face them 3200 bits, they stood up against 200,000. They're not a simple army to mess with. No horses, none of that stuff. And so it was in sha Allah victory in a different way. So that was the story of five and one even after that they hide when it becomes the greatest command ever to exist in the history, part of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu. It was in it. After that brothers and sisters, what happened? I just want to mention a very quick incident, which is quite interesting to know what happened there.
There was a member of the number honorable Ross. Remember, he embraced Islam, he had only been about six months and Muslim was known to be Muslims liked him, they respected him, but not too much because he used to work against the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So what happened with honorable boss? He had embraced this them. And there was a little there was a little tribe that was with the Romans still, and the Muslims had to take care of him. They were called Ben Assad. So he told him the boss from Swaziland said to honorable says, I want you to be the commander of this army. And I'm going to send with you 300 soldiers against that trial, because they are a threat. Go get them
before they get us. So on to the last looks that Mrs. Yellow School of Law. I did you know me out of all people, and encouraging he said, Listen, you go and you get to rewards the reward of the Hereafter, and I will give you from the spoils of the war, I will give you a lot more just for leaving the army as your wage as your reward. So under the law said, jasola law, I did not embrace Islam, to get wealth.
And process Adam said, I know you didn't, I know that you are sincere. And this is this beautiful state and you're ready for it. He said, however, what's wrong? Pure money, righteous money for a righteous man.
What's wrong with a righteous man having righteous money.
And what this tells us is money is not bad. It's not all bad. We always say our rich people, they're bad. Wealth is bad for you. Wealth can be bad for you. But if you are righteous, and you don't let the wealth take over you then that righteous money is blessed for that righteous money is blessed with to get the best of both worlds. Nothing wrong with the Muslim righteous wasn't becoming a businessman becoming an entrepreneur getting wealth.
And so he said righteous money for a righteous man. Yeah, nothing wrong with it. So then took the command ship, and he took the 300 soldiers with he sent with him, some soldiers with the Assad regime. And then when he was reaching the place on the blouse, last realize that they just they're a small army, and then I'm going to be able to defeat the people that that's how smart he was. So we sent a letter to send them saying, send me reinforcement, I need double the amount. So the proposal I sent him sent with him, the elite of the companions, he sent him a book on it. I'm going off man and Aveda.
They make a list of all the components and the process of them set up Aveda blah blah. He said, Go you can leave this army until you get to the last and then I want you to follow him. He's the commander. Yeah ball beta do not dispute with
because it was a type that it can easily dispute with it needs to do things that a lot of people used to think it's unorthodox ways of doing that man.
So our beta went with that sort of attitude thinking is gonna cause trouble for me here. And also our seller knew that he knows what I'm gonna blah sauces like he knows every competitor what he's like. So he said don't dispute with him. You have our beta.
So beta reaches him. And it came time for us afraid
because I'm the boss was the commander of the army. He is the one who has to lead the inside.
So he can be in war. The commander leaves the army. He comes to leave and goes forward he wants to leave the
cold I mean how the nomada trustworthy of his own man
he says no, Mohammed Salim made me the commander so I lead you in select obey the signal Island humans.
I energy I don't need you, they have a dispute, then I will obey that said you know what you are you lead. And the only reason I'm gonna let you lead is because the Prophet sallallaahu Selim commanded me not to dispute with you. So I'm not going to dispute with you. There is great wisdom in this my brother and sisters.
It's only been six months. And Muslim is not as great as a motivated
seller and get him to lead because he was the most qualified for this position that he for this particular project.
He was the most qualified for this particular project. And he said to him, don't dispute with him. Listen to him. And that teaches us that even if somebody is in charge of a project and you think you're better than them when you think someone else is better than them, don't do not dispute
And make it work, whether
or not to speed and then you will lose your aura on top of a loved one who looks at that situation and says to abubaker watch this, who is a competitor of Aveda.
And then, sister, Omar,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have never put us in this leadership position if he did not know that he is the best among us all,
for this position for this particular position, and all of them respected that. So, you see brothers and sisters, sometimes we dispute, some of the later we get jealous. And we say, you don't even know that, as we know the coroner, tell me tell me, tell me what the letters of approval.
You know, we throw or we mentioned some scholar that only a few people know that you have to read through the books. Do you even know what a scholar is? any interest? You try to put them on the spot? We should not talk like that. We should respect the qualification of the person who's in later. Is he able to do it? Is she able to do it? Yes, we respect that doesn't mean they're better than you you better than that, of the loss of a loved one within the print. And then what happens next?
He It was night and it was very, very cold. I'll just finish it with this very, very cold. And some of the companions wants to light up the fire so they can get warm.
Nobody's allowed to light a fire. But yeah, we're cold. We're freezing. So no one's allowed to learn on the fly. I know. Some of the competitors thought Who does he think he is not letting us lighter. We want to be warm. No one's allowed to have a baby. Then next, after they slept that night under the mouse wakes up and he has to still leave. But he was you know, you know, Genovese, right? Do you know what your job is? How old are you boys?
Can you close your ears? I need to say what the job is?
you can hear the job is when you have a wet dream.
What's with drink?
A bit I knew they were gonna say that. Anyway, the older people you know what I'm saying? It's the June of that when you wake up you have to have a shower from it. You can't pray without having a shower. Okay, and by the way, having said this about some young fellows here
if you have general it's enough for you just to let the water go all over your body once it just so long as it reaches your skin every part where you can just chuck yourself under the shower band You're out. So I don't want anyone saying oh you know some students go to school in school often want to pray with us and say I've got to say bro wake up you know you know yourself wake up like you know 10 minutes extra all you got to do is just jump onto the show and it's gone since that day that what do you what do you go to a wedding and you know, a bride getting ready for the wedding. Just get under a man and get out. But my hair but my skin is here, man. Now we got little boys around,
you know a girl that'd be a princess. Even women do better than you now these days. So get up, get ready, go on to the shower finish from the gentlemen out. Anyway, having said that, I'm the boss was in June. So what does he do? He says, I'm leading the prayer and I'm not having a shower. I'm gonna pray in the state of Georgia. I'm just gonna make
an update. I'm sorry, but normal will do and it
goes to him.
This guy's playing games with us, man. What's this? I will obey Him as the process Allah placed him. Then they went charged into the the tribe, the city where they were meant to fight. Whenever they fought very heavily and they were about to conquer the place. Then what does
he retreats? Because go back and they all retreat. They didn't even take over the town.
What's this? They come on their way. They're very hungry. On the way they're very hungry.
And they didn't have food. So they were starving almost to death. And suddenly they saw they reached an ocean.
And near the beach. They saw something very big and black washed off on shore. As they approached it. It was a huge massive whale, I think was a blue whale.
How do I know? Because the companion said it was such a massive vial that there was an eye socket. We took out the high because we hate it. We hide from it. And we could fit five men crouched inside of the US Soccer of that way five men. Some of us would have our camera and would stand on top of the camera just to try and reach not even reached the you know the height of the way that that's how big it was. So we didn't know whether we can eat it. You know, it's still held around we don't know.
This was a washed off. dead animal, not slaughtered, not hunted, just washed off on the show. And I didn't even know if they can eat that dead animal on the show.
But there was 700 k for all of us. When I reached the province of Alberta was Senator, they said the honest rule of law was starving and we had no other option, but we ate from that wildlife was Colorado.
The province of the last of them said to them, Do you have any more of it? I said, Yes. He said, Give me some, and he started eating from himself.
And this is a meta that tells us this is evidence that you are allowed to date any, any creature that comes out from the sea, any creature that lives in the sea, you're allowed to eat. And if it's washed off, and still fresh, obviously can't be decayed. You're allowed to eat eggs and have to slaughter fish or anything like it can a shark you can eat crustaceans, but there is the level of of the 200 Please do not eat crustaceans, such as crabs and seashells and stuff like that. But the rest of the mother has to agree on that and will not last Continentals best at the correct opinion is that you can eat anything from the sea that is reliant and dependent on the status of Ah, now the
purpose of the lesson lab said and Bahar Romero
in the Hadith is in Sahih Muslim that the professor said and I think it's in Buhari, he said about the ocean, all of the ocean is pure. So it's all you can make will do from a command also from it. It's always pure and handmade that anything that comes out of a dead is Hello.
This is something now he approached me. He said, yeah. Explain yourself.
Why did you forbid them from loading up the file? He said, You're a solo law, the enemy is just across and there's a large amount of them. And we're coming in not letting them know that with it. If we light up the fire with it up the fire, they can see us and then it will take us so I didn't let anyone light it up. said okay. They said what about the depression. He said
it was a very cold night. And I attribute them from muddying up the fire because then that will take us and kill us. So I couldn't live I couldn't warm up any water. If I had used the cold water probably would have killed me or something would have happened. Not killed me. But it would have hurt and I want to light up the fire because I have to be done. So I prayed enjoy the process has said and smiled and said you've done well. That's okay. Why don't you retreat to the Rasul Allah approached, I realized that they were more than double our amount if we had taken over, they would realize that we are a small amount and they would beat us and kill us. So I retreated. So para la de
la silla knew that he was not going to conquer that place. Yet he put him in different wisdom than via last one, they learn the commander, you obey him. He's talking about unity of themselves and what it means. And the qualification of the person is what matters is qualified for that position that's good, doesn't have to be qualified for everything. You might be qualified in one particular area of a project, give it to that person and leave your personal grudges aside, leave your personal opinions aside, leave your own opinions aside, if they're qualified for that position.
Right? Someone's good in it, you give that to them, you know, so who is this person? Someone who's qualified in making posters, who is that person they don't say that says qualified. Someone has to lead. I don't like him. He leaves because they're qualified. So you give each person deposition and each person according to their qualification,
my brothers and sisters in Islam.
After this little battle that happened, the mortar battle, and all of that stuff, we now arrive at the most important part. And what is that? the conquest of Mecca? I'll only say half of it today. In a show on next week, we'll say the
the tribe, Hosea mentioned that before they had a problem with another tribe called better worker, whose there are
a lot of the Meccans. So who's asked them and embraced Islam. So they wanted to go to Mecca and do the ombre and prayer that they thought were safe, right? So who said I went to the Kaaba and I started doing it. And I started praying. So there were half Muslim and half Muslim. There was a tribe called bandwagon as I said, and they had the leader, he wanted revenge from Hosea, something had happened in the past. So he looked at them and thought, you know what,
I'm going to kill them.
And he came up to a few of his people. And I said, All right, we agree with you.
So he said, let's let's betrayed them. And they knew that they were betraying the trust the treaty, they're gonna break the treaty.
Because if an ally America breaks the treaty, then it means the whole of corporations broken a treaty, right?
So they waited for them outside of the heart of the Mecca. The Haram is the little the area where you do away from prayer is a particular distance for kilometer radius, that's the heart I'm not allowed to kill him at another point in. So he went until they were outside the harm a little bit in their tents. And in the night, they attack
this tribal with the laws of courage, they attacked a lot of Muslims. They killed a few of their men, and the Muslims realized, so they got up
and they ran away from them into the home. Why? Because in the heart, I'm not gonna kill anyone.
So their leader,
he runs in
from Hosea from Bernie Booker. And these people, they say, it's the heroin, the heroin, the heroin, don't kill them. You know, Allah loves heroin, don't kill them in it. And he said to them, what? You people are crooks anyway, you're liars. You don't even respect the heroine, one law, he will fight them and kill them in there. There's no harm today. So he broke into the harem thing, where in order to kill it comes inside starts killing. And from the people of the courage people saw him and some of them even took part and some of the police just watch them. So the correlation themselves, they approve the trading, that was bred for trading, the courage to stop them. And they did it inside the
huddle. So it was an all out breaking of the contract. Two years later, this was in the eighth year of two years later, after they signed the trading brokerage broke the trading.
People from Casa de ran to the prophet SAW Selim in Medina. And when he reached the he made a big poem, big palm, which means they broke the tree, they attacked us, they killed us, you should defend us we have they just within the process, Allah sent him when he heard this, he snapped his thighs. And he said, we will give you a victory of light. So he started to silently gather an army to go to Mecca and take over, no Muslim knew about not even abubaker law except for Asia of your lawn. So she started preparing weight and food and things like that. The professor said, I want to keep an absolute secret. They don't want Americans to know,
Abu Sufyan. He received a bit of news about that. So they said, What should we do? They said, well,
there was a guy who had a pasta and he said, Listen, why don't you go and kill the people who killed those Muslims? Or you go and you make a treaty, renew the treaty with Mohammed Salone. It was said, Oh, you embrace this that. They said, Ma'am, we can agree with any of that. So I will Sofia is the leader of Quraysh. He goes, I will go and try to renew the contract. I'll go to Mohammed and say listen, you know, the contract work, let's make the contract new. So I will soufiane goes down to Medina. He enters and he didn't know who knew about it or not. So he goes to his house and goes to the force of law sellers house, the prophet peace be upon him had married who had married the
daughter of Oh, Sophia on Mojave, but remember of your loved one. And we talked about a couple of lessons ago. And also if you're not on Mojave, the answer's no. Because he
says he enters the house and seven was not there. So although Habiba welcomes him, he's a father, he is a disbeliever. And he goes to sit on the mat
of the mat, it was a straw method, the process and then slip on and what is a very, very, very simple straw mat. That's not even like it's a little bit broken apart. The proposal that I sent him is to sleep on it. And you can see the marks of the straws on his on his side and on his cheeks on the body. He was sending it. Very simple, man. So what did he do? As the Father was going to sit on the mat of the proximal arcilla? She folds it up and away from him? wouldn't let him sit on it.
So he looks at it and says,
Have you folded it away? Because you think that your father is too noble than to sit on a cheap piece of mat? Or did you fold it away? Because you thought the map the off? Your father is too cheap to sit on that precious metal?
Instead, is the metric precious for me to sit on? Or am I too precious permitted to sit on that lap? And she said the mat is more precious than you is the mat of Rasulullah symbolized a new way to impure to sit on it.
A lot of
this is what Islam did.
And he said to her, Well, Islam is more important than NFL. She said yes. casumo assassin is more important. So he goes to the masjid and he says the promise of our salah and he says I want to enter the contract is working there's so much good out of it. Let's renew the terms once again. So the prophets of Allah said them said to him,
we are still sticking by the contract and we are not want to betray
so I was hoping I knew that the seller knew.
So he goes to Albuquerque
told the Prophet asked him the contract is working let's renew the contract once again. I didn't know but all he said was the same thing. We are still sticking by the contract you know and we are not able to portray it and I can't go against Mohamed Salah.
Tell him to give us refuge because I can't say anything you ask him
because who should I go to is more on who's honorable to the process and he said go to Allah.
He goes to
our whole people are gonna go special to tell him to renew the contract give us protection.
looks at it says me. Me Out of all people.
If it wasn't for Mohamed Salah, I would have gone right now all of you would have been ripped to pieces and died a long time ago. That treaty of fidelity, I don't even want it. If it was up to me, all of you would be dead by now.
So this is Wow.
What a great pity about the relationship that we had
almost said Get out of my face. If it wasn't for the Prophet, I'd kill you. Right. So it goes through with Matt, he tells him the same thing. He said, I've got to take props. I said, I'm spot. So then it goes to it with your local cousin of the first lesson and he enters and he says, God, please, you know, let's renew the contract, give us you know, pledge, give us protection or whatever. And article 11 says, Hey, I'm not one to take over Mohamed Salah silabs command. So instead, what should I do
is go to someone else. So it looks at 14 with your loved one. And the processes. Dora says, What about you? says I'm not going to talk in front of you know, take over the words of Martin Fowler, Professor Larson. So he says that hustle and hustle is about 10 years old. It looks at him He goes, what about that kid? I mean, he's the grandson of homeless wasn't Can he give us protection? You know, I just say that he gives us protection. 14 he looks at and says he's a kid.
He's a child. Children don't give these allegiances or these protection. So don't give me something I want to work out something so out of the normal system. Well, you You're the you know, you're the leader of Quraysh. Why don't you get up and say everybody, that people have Macondo my protection because you think they'll listen, do you think one honorable
leader, you're the leader go, why don't you try it? So he believes because of the message because everyone?
Me the leader of
all the people of Mecca are under my protection, the leader.
And then the seller looks at him and he says, that's what you think.
If you have let him go, it means that he agrees sinuses approval. So he goes, what's what you're saying? And so, Sophie, I knew that his words are nothing. So he gave up it goes back to Corp says people
I advise you to surrender. These people are going to get us.
So they said What happened? They said I even went and said protection under me. And they said what do you mean protection of your the enemy? And you think that they can they're gonna listen to you saying that they protected. You said, You told me to do that. And they said, Well, he played a big game with you. You're so naive and stupid.
He says listen, the only way I see it is surrender. Now, Sofia is a businessman. He looks at what you know, gains and losses. So I guess we're gonna lose. So he and his wife she gets up in front of everybody and says to him, you cannot have a man surrender. And she says in Arabic artania show it became the default Give me your mustache spread everything grab a person a man's mustache I mean to one year
What a coward have a manual You don't deserve that mustache. This one. So she grabs his mustache and says you are a coward. He tells us shut up that's what he said to scoot the camera. What could he basically get into your head
in terms of the people that says don't listen to what she's saying, I know what I'm saying these people Muslims that too powerful Surrender now and count your losses. They said no, we want
so they waited.
The Muslims gathered the army for the book of the law and enters to eyeshadow. The line is Dora fonts are preparing food and stuff. She said the Bahamas.
Tell me what we're gonna do. Are we gonna go to Persian? She goes
she wouldn't answer says the Romans. She wouldn't answer just then to Where was that? I mean that this Oberto that she wouldn't answer. The professor had told Ayesha and told her not to say anything. Not even to the Father. And Subhanallah she stuck with that sacred spot a lot today, a lot of us we're not really good at keeping secrets someone comes and tells you a secret and Mr. straightaway tell it to anyone else. And you know, especially women, women do,
always sacred go out very quickly backbiting gossiping, and you know, you can probably get upset with me but that's the truth.
Now I show the lawn is a great example. She wouldn't say that the secret so the prophet SAW Selim enters Anasazi Rasul Allah where he says Monica is going to conquer America because it gives a treaty with them. He said they've broken the treaty. Yeah, so big. So okay, I get it. He gathered all the Muslims. And they were about 7500 Muslims in two years. 7500 Muslims, was the amount of the Muslims on the way that we're down towards Mecca. What happened? another tribe, a big tribe, benomyl, Sudan. I think it was called. They were 1000 warriors on horses. They were
galloping towards a professor I sat down with armor and send them smile. This is the coming to embraces that they entered and they said we embrace Islam, yada solimar and they joined them as well. So now they were 8500 warriors soldiers heading towards Mecca. Mecca is not going to be able to
three minutes for you, they entered. And I arrived about, I would say 10 kilometers away from Mecca. And they settled there and camped for a little while. As they were outside of Mecca.
A man came out, he was migrating. And also our seven got so happy for him. He was a lot of the law on the sellers, Uncle from his father's side. He comes was migrated to the US along doing his ra outside of Mecca to Medina, I didn't know that you're here said Come come. unbeli hugged him and he stayed with him was doing migration. And this is the last person to migrate to do his euro. Because when the senate takes over maccha, he's going to say less.
There is no more migration from Mecca to Medina
after the fact. And so he was the last man to make Asia and almost wanted to honor him with that. Allah best knew that he was going to go and take over Mecca.
This is no good. Why should you take them over? I want them to embrace Islam. In the meantime, how to have a lot of them a great companion for 14, but he had family in Makkah that were poor. And he feared that the Meccans will kill them. So he secretly wrote a letter informing them that Mohammed is coming in somebody was warning them. And that's a betrayal. So he sent it with a woman in secret. This woman went and she read our data set and came to the process. I said, I'm telling him, this is what happened.
So we sent the alarm on to people with them saying going extract good or bad for me. They reach the woman and said, Where's the letter? She said, I don't have any letters. An article article said the process of selling is not a liar. Job. He said he's truthful. And all of us said is truthful is not a lie.
He said if you don't give it to us, we are going to look through your belongings even through your clothing, whatever it takes. So it looks with a camel and everything and she realized she has to give you she took off her scarf and it was hidden inside her head. And she gave him the letter and it was hard to breathe your loved one informing the Mexicans that Thomas Larson was coming in and out.
When I found out he looked at how he called him, an hombre de la Han who stood up first he said you're a solo la Domini.
Let me kill him in Nevada. He is a hypocrite. He's done hypocrisy. What is the purpose of the lesson I'm saying? said yeah, how did you do what you did, and how they've said,
You're a solo law. Just listen to what I have to say first, I have a family in them. They're poor, they got no one to protect them. I left them there when I migrated. And these people, when they find out that we're entering, they'll probably go to my family and kill them. So I thought if I wrote a letter to them, maybe they will look and find compassion towards me for helping them out just to save my family. On one of the Aloha, it looks up and says, save your family. By massacring a whole nation of oma all these people. Give them a head start for your own family and put your own desires above this. The professor said himself to be quiet. Leave him alone for life again, and he goes I
remember that I lost my data set to three children to me. Oh, people are better. He was a fighter and better. Do whatever you wish after this, no sin will harm you ever again. Leave him alone will forgive him that he made a mistake. And true leaders who was allowed to forget
my brothers and sisters about Sophia and heard about some news. So he tried to go out to speak to the seller.
And he meant a lot Bess, LA City embraces lamb embraces that and it's not going to be good.
So who Sophia and girls will still have dealt. He said how can you have dealt after all of this? He sat with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And he said the Shahada. But he said hesitantly
I think it was below the Lama who said to him, if we cut off your head, the doubt will go. But also fear I'm still hesitant, but he said it. However, later on, he finds out that Islam is the truth and it becomes a true Muslim.
Brothers and sisters in Islam show next week.
I will tell you what happens next. What happens with other Sofia? How the Muslims enter? What are the few things that happen there? What are the possible I send them say what happens to him what happens the agreement what happens to all these people, we're going to get some very valuable lessons from insha Allah as I said three more lessons and we will be done with the Sierra in sha Allah tada and then we'll have a bit of a break, we'll have a few weeks and sha Allah let you know we'll return and possibly in sha Allah, probably which is more of a prompt more of a hope

I thank you for listening.
I asked last winter to accept this from us. Whatever mistake I made is from myself whatever truth I says from the last minute it was all alone and Amina Mohammed Wanda and he was off the edge of Maine was set out why they
were very careful
