many 100 100 let me know salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Come to another session of Dowden they'll be finished with Allah ceram the father and son and we're on to Solomon alayhi salatu salam now. And the many powers that Allah gave Solomon Alayhi Salam where he was, you know, he got powers that nobody else got. And you can imagine, you know, the more power a person gets, the more you have to fear of them. And the greater the sovereignty or the Ruby on the on the earth, and salovaara power of the of the human beings over the jinns. And we're not just talking about normal agenzia we're talking about the model that to share, we're talking about the big devils, or the great genes that had superpowers, he had control over them. And even they
were afraid of disobeying Solomon Elisa. So if they didn't listen to him, he just imprison them. He just imprisoned prison. And if they did listen to him, then they had to work for him. In fact, sometimes they work for him for months and months and without without even, you know, without even a sound between them. So he had that power. On top of that he had the power over the birds. He had the power over the buzzer, go across the skies, and keep watch over the different territories. Now, this was almost like, you know, having some really good satellites that are power is zooming to the areas and knowing exactly where you stand with your enemies and those threats that are probably coming
And not only that, but last week we heard that he understood the conversation between ants or an ant that was talking to a colony of ants. He understood exactly what was said and he stopped and he, he turned to Allah azza wa jal Now, having so much power over his kingdom, he was quite satisfied that he was the one and only King. Now Allah azza wa jal had given for individuals in the past a kingdom that no one they were King, nobody else on the earth was king. Or nobody had their likes of you know, the kind of the kind of rule they had no one had any competition with them of the day.
Two of them were
Muslims. And two of them were coffee.
Okay. So as for the Muslims, one was salovaara salam, he was the greatest of all, of all the different reigns and sovereignty, Solomon had the greatest. And the other one was called 9119. Because we understand how you plan to travel today, to the extent of the Earth to the furthest East you can go to, and then the furthest West, you can go to he traveled all of that and in between, as well, where later on, you know, he traps you at the margin and so on. So, we know these two individuals, the other two are one is number, route, number route, who was the king at the time of Babylon in the time of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, and he had no competition in his time. And like
we covered before how his end was, that allows Oh, God, he challenged Allah. So directly said, okay, you know, where's the challenge? Come on, you know, so he, he started to throw arrows in the in the sky and saying, Well, if you're in the sky can come back and fight with me. So Allah azza wa jal, that's when he sent his one small army, as well as mosquitoes. So he sent them down and they say that mosquitoes came in this man couldn't handle it. Until that he took one mosquito in his nose, and that mosquito went straight to his brain and he would start sucking, you know, blood from his brain. And so so, you know, I've covered this before in the story of Ibrahim alayhis salam, Salam.
So this was one who was a cafard, who's who's a disbeliever and the second one was around around who had his kingdom and His time there was no competition he had while he was king, Solomon Ali Salaam, being the king, he was he already had stated in the Quran surah number 27 ayah number 16. What routine I mean cliche we've been given from everything Allah has given us a little
Got this bounty. So he had no worries of his kingdom. And what he would do, what he would do is that from from father to love,
he had a,
he kept his father's legacy, which was to just judge between people. So fight father till God, his, he sat there with people. And that was his time to judge between people. And while he was judging between people, nobody, nobody had the, you know that nobody had the courage of moving an inch out of his command, because he could subdue you and put you into prison straightaway. He built many, many great monuments in his time. And while he was in while he was doing that, and he was in his madness, or in his gathering, once he actually got all of his close ones together, the people who would report to him the people who he would give daily tasks to. So we talking about the human
beings, they came, the clothes, jeans, they came, the clothes, birds, all of them came. And one of the things that we recognize from Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was that and Allah gave them this power, this power was that he could Rasulullah sallallahu could be sitting in a gathering of several 100 people, and he could tell straight away who is absent.
This is a miracle and possible, awesome. So we know this from the holidays, he would turn around from his Salah, he would turn around and he would be doing liquor and once he's finished his liquor, he looked at the crowd. And by just looking at the crowd, like if you guys looked at the crowd today, without a register in your hand, how would you know that? Who's here who's not here from a Wednesday evening? How would you know? You wouldn't you think it was a class, even then people take time to raise? Okay, he's not here, she's not here. And if you're talking about a class of 1520 individuals, that's fine. You can straightaway tell who's who's here, who's not here. But if you had
a class of 300 people, 400 people 500 people, how would you know, but Rasulullah sallallahu. Ala Moana is modular was that he would turn around from his his muscle and he would know straightaway, Allah gave him this gift, he would know whose he was on here. And out of courtesy, not because he was trying to make people feel guilty and so now out of courtesy, out of mercy, just so that he knows they're okay. You know, after a few times, he wouldn't see the same individual who had come for Salah regularly to his master. And he would see that a few times. He hasn't seen them for a few days. That's when the purpose of the lesson would say how ways on so maybe a couple of days
something he would say we're in so on. So Hackman, I'm not saying so and so. So it's not like you know, I'm monitoring you and watching you and your big brother I'm you know, I'm gonna see you here is not because that is simply out of mercy out of courtesy. So if you find that that that individual was ill Prophet sallallahu will go that day and he would visit that person. So the man on a Salaam had the same thing that imagine genes, human beings, birds all together, and so on. So when I was seven glances around, and he notices one bird missing
is amazing. Out of the whole of this looking at one bird missing is the hoopoe bird. In English you call it the hoopoe bird in Arabic, you call it the Hood Hood. So this is now pseudonym 27 is number 20.
Where Pseudomonas Alam he notices that Hood Hood is missing. And he says, Molly says what Samarra la Hood Hood?
I don't see Hood Hood. I don't see the hoopoe bird,
um, can Amina vibing is the Hood Hood bird absent.
And there's absolute silence here because this is Suleiman alehissalaam. This is not me, our individual, he could do anything if somebody is not listening to what he wants to be done. And don't forget, please, this is not like a person who's got a lot of wealth and a lot of power and just wants to make people just work for the sake of work. Not everything that a man or a ceram is doing is for for people, for the community. And it's for Allah sake, obviously, ultimately, it's for Allah sake, and it's going to benefit everybody. So the whole structure he's got going around with building words, with people looking over we making sure that the army is ready for any attacks. And
for him judging between people, it's a wonderful, sort of, you know, he was in Jerusalem, he ruled from Jerusalem. So it was a wonderful empire that he had.
Now, having someone missing meant that part of the job is not being done. If you have someone like let's say, for example, this happens quite a lot. You know, when you have you know, when you have a big function, I don't know if you guys ever organized the function, even if you organize the function in your house, you you would know, you give the responsibility to someone to make the cake. You give the responsibility to someone to go and witness receive the guests, the guests from the door. You give somebody responsibility to maybe tidy up you give somebody responsibility to do something else.
Everybody has a place, especially the bigger the gathering, the more you have to look over it. Like, for example, in Edmonton here, when we have that, you know, once a year, family barbecue or something, there's a lot going on. And every man has to stay at his post. If you leave your post, you know what's going to happen. Now people start flooding in or things will happen, now go missing or whatever, you have to stick to your post, if you're a person who's got responsibility, so why he was upset with who the hood is, because who's supposed to come to this weekly, whether it was a weekly gathering, whether it was whatever how many days he had this gathering, who's supposed to
come and report back if Hood Hood is absent, that means we could be we could have a threat. Okay. And because Buddha has a particular job of looking over the skies and seeing, you know, who might be coming to attack the kingdom, and a small little position where you don't have people watching over the bed watching over, let's say, it could be a threat to the kingdom's. That's why cinnamon Allison said, I number 21. Even when shalida said I will punish Hood Hood,
a great punishment, a tormenting punishment. Because this is not a normal job, this is a job of keeping your whole kingdom alive. I will add mahana. Or I will definitely slaughter Hood Hood in front of you know others, meaning that it's going to show that if this bird is not keeping its its rank, then you're not look at whoever is listening to me, if you also leave your ranks, and all of us will be at a great race. So I'm going to teach him a lesson. I would like to end with some funny movie. Or perhaps I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that Hulu has been out there. He's doing a job and the job that he's doing, he's going to come to me with some good evidence or something that
is going to be mighty for me to say, well, there's a good reason for him to be absent. So either he's absent without leave, which in which case, I'm going to punish him or he's going to have a good reason in which case I will I will wait.
Not long went by there was still there.
Who came in
who wasn't very far coming back to Solomon Alicia. So who flew flew in the hoopoe bird flew in, and the bird spoke to Solomon ra Salam. Now this is amazing. Okay, imagine, I'd love to be there that time imagine this, and speak the bird birds being seen as a lamb, you understand what someone like him says, you ain't got no clue what the bird says. Right? So you have to wait till you know some translation or something has been done, or deliver some say something. So this was the power imagine there's a king here, one understands birds, this is not ordinary. So. So the Mona Lisa has who coming in and who to speak straightaway, says I have to be Marilyn to hit to be. So before anything,
he gives the you know, you know, like when you're in trouble, where you will be in trouble. Instead of saying, Well, I'd like to explain myself why I've been absent. Let me start with the moment that I went to it. If you start with that, man, you, you're gonna get slapped. Because the person hasn't got patience to listen to you. When someone's angry, or when someone's like, an upset with you, you're going to get to the bottom of it quick. And that's something that we learn from this. So who does something really good. He started something which he said something was straightaway would take the attention of Solomon Islands around and all the coaches that were there, he said, I have to be
Milan to hit me. He said, I have encompassed or surrounded or seen the word about something which you have an uncompressed? I seem to the king. What you don't know. I know. Wow. No, it's not like it's not like boasting or saying well, why in the world? Do you know you're just King sitting on the throne? Yeah, I'm doing the big job for you. Watching this guy's not like that. What he was like is
I have come to you your Your Majesty, your own highness, Solomon, Allison, I've come to you. And I've seen something of which you haven't seen. And I've managed to encounter something in my journey out there, which you haven't done in your in your, you know, in your kingdom. And while you've been a king, what it took in Serbia, in Vienna in yachting. And I bring you now this is where of course when he said the first part, it could be that there's always a possibility that he could be lying.
Who could be making this up? Just because someone comes to you and tells you certain news and they were absent and you want to try and get a good explanation from them and they tell you that I know you I've seen something you haven't seen how do you know they tell you the truth. So that's why I didn't want you to come in southern Indiana but
I've come to you from Southern from
Yemen. Now, Samana Salam is in Jerusalem. And that's where his his kingdom, the main part of his kingdom was, of course, he had a large, large genome all over the Arab world and all over this sort of whole area.
And who had traveled about 2000 kilometers south, east, towards Yemen. In Yemen, there's the sun, ah, there's my ID, these places near there, there's a place called Saba. Now, currently, it's about a good sort of 3d they call it three days journey or something from Santa. Santa. It's in Yemen. It's in the south part of the Arabian Peninsula, who do the traveled 2000 miles that way to see you know, what was there and came across something which was astonishing. So who said I've come from Subbu. But I've come to you with news that is convincing. Whenever in your team. Why who do they add the added this on, is to substantiate the fact that look, I'm not lying. I'm bringing you news that
is going to be really, really good news for you to know that I've gone so far. And I know that this exists because Sullivan ally, Sarah salon thinks that he is the one in charge. There is no other king or queen. In the good few 1000 kilometers around him, there is no one to challenge him. And he's totally unaware that there's a whole kingdom that's operating. Right, you know, by his side, that could be a threat, potentially, it could be a threat.
So he says this is number 23. Now in New
Mexico, I found a woman who is in charge and who's ruling over these people in Sabah. This is bilities he's talking about bilities. Later on, she becomes Muslim and according to report as well, later on, she actually marries Solomon alayhi salatu salam, some reports he she doesn't marry him some reports say she does marry him.
I go for you know, I'm a bit more inclined towards the one that she actually marries in later on. But definitely the Quran establishes that she actually becomes a Muslim later on. But at this time, her situation is that she's not actually a believer in any of the Scriptures. Who says we're OTF min Cooley Shea now this isn't surprising that hood who throws that Solomon Isilon which makes Solomon Allah Sarang thing that seriously this is this what what what is what the thing is who said, Who Ts min cliche, she's been given from everything. Meaning that if you go back to the to the 16th, I have the Surah Surah man Allah Salaam, said we're all Tienanmen cliche because Allah bounties on me and
my father, we've been given from everything, meaning that Allah has given us so much. And who do the saying, well, this woman has also got a big kingdom, and she's been given a lot while I hang out, have fun of him. And the most symbolic thing about a kingdom is the size of her throne.
Which kind of indicated that, you know, like, you know, people sometimes they want to look big, so they do a lot of things like you know, right now that Mr. Trump is in America, every time he stands, he's got his 747 behind him. You've seen that kind of shows, you know, who's in charge? Yeah. So
people in the past did this. People did this to shoot out grand house, a massive garden walls that are surrounding it. cannons that are on the top of the walls ready to blow anyone out moat around this castle that you've got. These are things that tell you that you're a person with great possession, great power. So one thing that bilities did is that she had this wonderful throne. But this throne inside the throne, she had put jewels inside so you know the Emeralds and diamonds and so on or whatever, whatever the precious stones were, she actually had put those precious stones inside her throat and her throat No, sometimes you have a chair, sometimes you have a big chair, she
had this massive throne, whether she looked small on into one or her throne show that she was a woman of great, great possession of great
assets that Allah had given her wealth Allah had given her she was that woman. Now,
these were things that who is now reporting back so so far, what we've got is that he knows something Silvana doesn't know. He's come with news that is convincing. Number two. Number three is that is a woman that is ruling so it's not a woman that has got so much power. And she's also got from everything Allah has given Oh, you know, she's she's managed to have whatever I mean, who didn't say Allah gave it to her, saying that she
She's got from everything, meaning that she's got a lot of things that are that that she's accumulated. She's got a massive throne. And then he adds on to say the sixth thing was to have a coma highest deletions. The surprising thing is that she and all her people, they worship the sun every day. They don't worship Allah. So there are sun worshipers was a urinal who shavon armella home and the shaytaan, or the devil has made it something that is adorned in the hands to worship the sun.
So he's misguided them from the path for whom if they don't, and they they don't, they're not guided to the partner why who's adding this on? Is so that Solomon, Allison doesn't think that a bird goes over there to another kingdom.
And after seeing my kingdom goes over to another kingdom, and starts getting surprised, so much sounds coming to me and lecturing me about another kingdom, and tells me how that how great the kingdom is, you know, it's kind of an insult. If you go if you come, if you're an ambassador, and you come back to your, you know, your country and you say,
you know, President, I just want to say that those folks over there when I saw them, they they were much greater in number than what you are on. Imagine someone comes back and says, you know, Mr. President, I would say to you that you kind of need to increase the size of your kingdom because these people are looking at it, you know, greater than you. Now, if somebody comes with that kind of language or that kind of approach, then they'll get annoyed. Now, who is adding on the fact that Oh, I know it's wrong, they're worshipping the sun. I know it's wrong that the shaytan took them away from Allah. And then he adds on, he says, shouldn't they be prostrating to the one I love the UK's
digital hub? is somewhat you will have this tool speaking, you know, cinema NASA Shouldn't they be worshipping Alon bowing down to the one who takes out the seed from the of the hidden treasures from the heavens and the earth? And God may be worshiping or processing the one who knows what is all the things that all of you guys hide, and all of you guys put a parent to for no matter Liam, because he doesn't know what reaction cinema is gonna give right now. Allahu La Ilaha Illa horrible. Allah is the one that there is no other law besides Him, Rob block, she loves him. He is the Lord of the great throne, meaning that he just said he just said in the presence of cinnamon, and he said that
this woman has got a great throne.
So then he added on in history, she's quite clever. Just so that so the man likes and doesn't get upset. He said, blah, blah, blah thing. They should be worshiping the one who has the great throne. Allah has the great throne. You know, someone can say, he's trying to say that.
Okay, Your Majesty, I've been there seen it. I said a few words. But I hope you don't think that I'm someone who's been mesmerized by their power. And I hope you don't think that my Eman has been affected. That's why he gave the whole thing about imagine they'd be worshipping Allah. And I hope you don't think that just because I saw her with a great throne, that I don't realize that you know, you don't have a big throne. And Allah has obviously the greatest role. This is a way of trying to dampen the Holy Spirit.
Now, this teaches a lot. There's a lot going on here. Because you know, sometimes when you read this, you think, why did hood need to speak so much?
design? And why do we need to report all of this to us? I mean, it could have been simply like
sariah Allah salam, you know, he has to do with carbon who knows where you've been? Okay, I've seen you know, all the first things all the way up to the end of, let's say, maybe i a 24 or something. But the whole of the I 2526 is extra things about Allah. Why do I need to report all of that? Why? because it teaches us something, which is when you're speaking to someone, depending on who you're speaking, you better put the record straight.
You don't say what you want to who you want, when you want and how you want.
Okay, especially when it's someone in authority and power, there's a certain way to speak to the somebody who's in you know, you don't speak to a person who's a doctor, the same way you'd speak to a street cleaner. And again, no offense to the street cleaner, but you wouldn't speak to them the same way. You know, people say so, so I you know, it's my right for you to reach out. Listen, you got freedom of speech, but there are certain things in this world that you gotta understand. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and didn't nazma Zilla home put people in their places. give people the prestigious place that they deserve or lower than Donald or raise them above,
according to the to the status that they have. Solomon and Solomon Salaam, sitting here as a king and who would come in with news, he better have a good reason to be absent. So when he's speaking obviously he's saying all these things
Then he's trying to cover it to show cinema lights. And look, I'm serious. I've seen all of this. And I hope I haven't made error in your presence in the way I've spoken. That's what comes out of this. Okay? This is this is a sign of a good and a great civilization. Now, Solomon alehissalaam, he could have turned around and said,
Hood Hood, fine.
I believe you.
Let's read away guys. Let's you know, get our forces together. Let's go down. Solomon, I could have said that because it could be a potential threat. Saba could be a potential threat bilities the Queen could be a potential threat. But he didn't do that. Solomon Alice Rams could have straightaway said that I'm going to test these people or something like that. No, he did.
The first thing was to Hood Hood.
He said sananda as a doctor, I'm continental Caribbean, this is number 27 or su 27 is that we'll see soon whether you have said the truth or whether you've just lied.
Now there's no reason really for Superman on a solid slab to believe that this bed is just made a whole fabrication come to him. But you know what it teaches us?
This teaches us no matter how
good any person is to you, no matter how close they are, no matter how good their track record of history is with you. You better always treat them equally with everybody else that you know that there could be a possibility that they failed on this one occasion. What I mean by this is that you know somebody will they see a usual suspect.
You know, what I'm trying to say is that, you know, there's a person amongst us who's stolen in the past. Let's say he stole once in the past. So another theft happens on a probably is him in it.
It happens a second time. Probably him or his cronies that are around as wrong because the thing is, he could have done it once but maybe he's not doing it another 10 times, but he gets accused for nothing. So that's one extreme. The other extreme is somebody who's been good somebody who's really good in this Masjid somebody who's always you know, looking after everyone and so on. We think Mashallah Mashallah Have a look at that brother. Look at that.
I wish I would like him You don't know he couldn't be the thief
seriously, you don't know he could be the thief
you guys don't believe me right?
Maybe he just sitting at listen some jackass
I've caught some money my life in a masculine who was the closest the closest to the people of the master. The trusted
person um, this is real Swinton. You
know, I used to, I used to, he used to come and he was so trusted he had the keys to every single door of the masjid. He had the keys to every single box of every box in the masjid. And he's to come every week. And you know what he said Viva la la. de la you know feasable lemons for the sake of Allah. Fie Sevilla this man used to clean the masjid no pay ever he asked for his to clean the mustard is to come seven in the morning on Friday. Clean the masjid all the way to Juma every Friday non stop never missed. Three sebelah say a wall is a wall
this canister used to cut everything while this man is coming. You know for the sake of Allah voluntary never takes in any money cleans entire machine from one end to another end. Who was it? He does the he does the jet washing outside. He cleans all the bins he empties the donation boxes but it gives it straight to the straight to the main person in charge. Okay, and everything's everything's wonderful. This one man on his own. He does Seven, six hours or six hours every single Juma and he won't go home till about three four o'clock
you must know how long
he's been for about 10 years martial martial law. So what is to happen is that you know is to open it in the morning obviously the the the donation boxes and once I asked him I said you know as a bronco you know, you open those boxes. I said, you know, what do we get for the masjid like you know, somebody wanna hear Mashallah people have been donating, you want to hear how much we raising and so on. This is nothing pennies, pennies.
pennies. Okay, anyway, so Another week, another week went by I asked him how much he said are pennies coins, he said.
Tell me just a few scraps that's all people give people don't get to the masjid isn't that? So I'm hearing this now for weeks and weeks and weeks.
And one day I said, You know what, I'm not gonna take this anymore. I was like, No, I want to make uncle happy. So what I did is that I made sure that I was the last one out the mustard on the Thursday. Okay, Thursday evening, and I made sure that I was the one who donated a good few notes in a certain box. And I said, tomorrow, I'm going to make uncle happy. Yeah. And I, after a father, when the uncle came, and he's opening all the boxes, and he's done all that. I said to solanco. I said, how's the donation boxes? He said,
a wall, whoa, because I know are the last one out.
And the first one or one of the first people in and this guy is the only one has gone with a key and open that donation box. And he's saying to me for weeks and weeks and weeks pennies, and on this occasion, he says pennies.
Then what happened is I thought, Okay, I'm going to test him out the following week. So what I did is that I put something on there for the Friday because it comes on Fridays I have to do on the Thursday. So I put something on the notes for something so original, the notes and I put in the box and ask the next day, because I knew that now if he's if he's taking it, then there's a signature of mine or there's something I put on the on the notes that I would know those are the notes that came out of my wallet.
So the next day I said to him, I said uncle, how's it going? pennies, pennies,
pennies, a Juma tie
in front of some trustees and others. I actually said I took out 220s I said to the Uncle, I said uncle, you're going to change for this venue that what I put last night was for tenants for 10 panels.
And then from his wallet he takes out for 10 panels exchange just to get some change. So I gave him the 220 panels to take the full 10 ban and under for 10 panels is the markings that I put come from his wallet.
And you guys said earlier? Yeah, 10 years clean the mustard Mashallah. Sometimes the most trusted one
could be doing something a little humble, you know, we found that he was doing something Alhamdulillah you know, we managed to get the person out of the mustard but the thing was that so close somebody so close to you.
In fact, they're giving out 10s and 10s of hours. This guy would come other times on Sundays and he would do things for the masjid on the weekends, he would come do things for the masjid. And the thing is I'm not saying this happens in every Masjid guys, don't don't stop donating. Right please, guys. Okay, you might say your next time the computer question. No, no, no, no.
No, no, no, no. I'm not asking you not to donate. and donate. You don't know we should do that we carry on but what my point was that sometimes the usual suspect is actually the one telling you the truth. And sometimes the closest one who you trust is the one who's telling you a lie.
And it's it's amazing sometimes when you when you when you go on in life and you when you hit by this and I couldn't believe it. I almost like almost fainted. I thought how how this man out of everybody? No way. And whoever I told in the master of the committee members were told, they said No way. No way. They said I am making things up.
I like I'm your Eman. Guys I'm gonna present these phrases on this. No, no, never.
That's what I had to do the test. And when I caught the person out. Once wasn't enough, I had to catch him out again in front of them. And a second time when I caught him out. This was another blatant you know, blast a way of caught him out. And that's when you know, the trustee that saw him though. Almost acted as if he is basically seen a gym.
he's walking from here to here from here to here. No way. No way. No way because they're best friends. And they've been, you know, in this organization for maybe 1015 years. Never ever thought that this person will do it. It's like your trusted person how the person got keys to every single door of the master every donation box of the master. So all I'm trying to say is that Solomon Solomon, he said to hoodoo, there's a massive lesson here is that when you have like even when you have children, you know sometimes we children, you think this one's always telling the truth. And this was never telling the truth. No, no, no, sorry. Treat them fairly.
The one that's always telling you the truth could one day tell you a lie.
One that's probably lying could tell you the truth on one occasion. And the same thing with employees. The same thing with people in your life in society. Don't treat people differently just because they did. They've got a bad history, or they've got a good history. So that's what I surmise and said, Well, I'm going to find out whether you've been telling the truth or lying. So savasana puts into the test, you know, who has come 2000 kilometers away from Sabah. He said the Mona Lisa. He wrote a letter, he put it together. He gave it to the hoopoe, now obviously bad wood holy in the in the clothes, or they would you know, these trains sort of birth? And who do they have the mission
now since I've said, Okay, let's find out if he's telling the truth, go all the way
to their kingdom and gone drop this onto the Queen
onto the under the kingdom where the queen is. And then you come back mean that you move away from there.
And then stay close by enough so that you can see what's actually happening. And you listen to the conversation. And I want you to tell me, what is it that they're planning. Now, nobody knows what's in this letter,
who takes the letter, all the way back to Saba. And then she dropped the hood who drops it. And Bill keys now receives the letter. This is our number 29. And Wilkins when she receives it, what we understand is that bill keys is a very highly intelligent woman.
She's not one of these emotional individuals. Suleiman Allah Salam is not an emotional individual. And my friends, you know, the big lesson in here is, doesn't matter whether you're a man or a woman,
if you're trying to run something, and you're emotional,
If you're emotional, and if things you know, like get you Moody, and you suddenly like lose something in your head, a man or woman I don't get man or woman. You know, sometimes people get Moody's like, you know, they got Moody's like,
they got beef with you and everything comes out. It's like, yeah, yeah, remember, you did this.
And I go for you. You know, there's so many moves, it could be some time the movie that I want to talk to anyone, sometimes the Moody, they want to talk to you, but they want to put you in trouble. They want to make life difficult. Sometimes, when someone moody you took rational, when I tell you one thing with both hands like this to you, brother and sister. Yeah. If you're talking to an emotional person who is emotional at that time, your rational language is going to go like this and then go like, ah, maybe basically, it's going to be turned over twisted. They don't an emotional person hearing rational arguments, they'll just turn it over on its head.
Because Do you know what I'm trying to say? You know,
I'll give you an example. If you find somebody who's fallen in love with a with a girl. Let's say that the boys fall in love with a girl. And the girl is not going to be good for him. So you try and talk to him. You You know that this man, or this boy here is going to you know he's in love with a girl and you try and tell him listen, listen, this goes not good for you. Just Why? Because this girl is she's hasn't got Islam in her life. Or this girl, she hasn't got good habits in a life. We've seen it this girl will ruin your life later on this girl. This is and you're talking about rational, rational arguments. This guy with two love hearts in his eyes like
he's emotional. Sometimes when you have you know, a husband and wife arguing,
the best thing to do sometimes is whoever is emotional. Let them rant on, let them rant on but the one who's not emotional, let him walk away. Let her walk away. Because if you talk to an emotional person at the time, that emotional you're not gonna get anywhere. You can get abused, you'll get taunted. You'll be told things you'd never want to hear in your life. You'll say good things, you'll hear bad things. You'll say things that are true. You'll hear false things. You'll say your law. How did you say that? They'll say it's true. And I'm going to give you another 10 things as well to hear and the next morning you know, the next day emotional people normally after one day after three
days, they're like, I'm really sorry.
Harsha hadn't said those things to you.
I really am so sorry. I never meant that. And, you know, please forgive me. It's like, yeah, I can forgive you fine.
You cause some serious damage. And the best thing when a person's emotional, is to say other way is to say either way, now to level headed people to rational people can get together on and they can make progress happen. They can make civilization continue in a good way. Now here what we understand is that look, you know, there's a woman who's a ruler, there's a man who's a ruler
Men is rational, the woman is rational. That's why both of them let's see how they solve this problem out. Because the man so the man on Islam sees the woman as a threat sees bilities as a threat, a belief doesn't give him to me that I can I think that she one day she might invade my country, or my kingdom with her army.
And Bill keys, if she thinks the same thing, there's going to be five, there's going to be war here. So when that letter drops,
and it comes to bilities, she says, Yeah, you have Mullah. She calls her hertz Council of people with whom she consults. She says in ni oltenia, la keytab. A letter has been dropped onto me a very note, she says, not just a letter, she says, a noble letter, a really good letter. Now Subhanallah she is a person who didn't react with emotions. She could have said, you know, what's this letter to me? I'm Queen of Sheba. I rule.
There's trouble. There's trouble straightaway. If a person starts to react like that. She said, it's a noble, it's a good letter. Why did she say good? Why did she say it's a noble letter? And the thing was, she said, has been dropped onto me. what she meant by that is that look, I haven't been in contact with anybody. It's been given to me. So don't think that I've been in contact with another king out there. And I'm bringing you some news. Now. This thing has fallen onto me and I need to consult you. She said I number 30. She says inhuman Sulaiman. It's from King Solomon.
Now they knew who King Solomon was. They knew Solomon. I said, I'm who he was. Okay. So so because you know, they're a little kingdom, Solomon, Solomon has the greater kingdom. So normally, the smaller ones always hear about the bigger ones. The bigger ones might not always know who the smaller ones are. So the new cinema cinemas, and she said, Well, it's from Solomon, King Solomon. We're in now who Bismillahirrahmanirrahim but instead of Solomon, this was the outstanding this was what made you think that Solomon alehissalaam is or Solomon King Solomon Lester's refer, I want to say King Solomon now because I'm trying to give you the understanding of bilities, who's not a
Muslim at this moment. So King Solomon who sent me this letter, he has not sent me this letter because he has some selfish gains to achieve. He does not want to to overpower me and my kingdom for his selfish gains. No, he should have started this letter to say, like any King or any Queen, the writer, especially in that time, they would say from King Solomon, to Queen Sheba. That's how the letter would normally start. And that was a practice of the time, even in Rasulullah sallallahu. Ellison's time, he wrote letters and he said, me, Mohammed, and he wrote his name, you might ILA, you know, Soufan or Illa. avi me room to to the to the great, you know,
today, what is the quality of the room?
Hi, Surya, sorry, Emperor Emperor to the Roman Emperor. Okay, to the Roman Emperor. This was a letter we've got a Buhari, that person loves them. So that was the norm. Now this letter is different. Why is this letter said Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem?
This letter comes to you in the name of Allah. Not in the name of Solomon. Not in the name of King Solomon, not in the name of King of the earth. This letter I send you in the name of the king of King of all kings, Allah, who's the rock man most merciful. And he uses the word rock man to show that
because of a law,
who's the rock man, I the King Solomon on the ground will have mercy on you.
If you do what I tell you, I'm not here to fight you. This was the decision I say. It starts with Allah's name to show that look, I'm not selfish. Second thing it shows is that is from Allah, meaning that I am only doing Imani King on this earth because of a life not because of myself. Third thing is that a last name, I could have taken so many I could have said Bismillah, alcohol or Jabbar. I could have said In the name of Allah who's the sub dua who puts tyrants in their places. I could have used those those names, but I didn't I use Rahman and Rahim, the Most Merciful the most time. Why? To show that Allah has mercy and because I'm under him, I will have mercy too. And the
simple message was in number 31
Allah Tao Lu aleja. What to the Muslims
don't don't try and
Who want to overpower me? Don't try and show your powers against me.
Don't do that. But just come to me as people who just accepted my authority and become part of my kingdom.
So don't try Don't try anything. Don't try any games. Don't try and fight me. What I want you to do is come under my power. Now, Bill keys received this letter he thought, you know, what is from a king, king Solomon, who's the King Solomon the great. He's trying to ask us, he'll be good to us, if only we just submit. But bill keys. If she now starts this, we learn a beautiful thing here is that a bill keys, she's the queen, she can make a decision. And she's the sole queen. And she can say, look, I make a decision tomorrow, we go all over us to Solomon Allison's kingdom. And we will, we will basically tell him that we wonder if she could have done that. But she didn't.
We learned another lesson, which is, it's very good to always consult even the people who are under you. So if you're a father of the family, if you're a mother of the family, please consult your young ones, even if it's something that you don't need their opinion on much, but just consult them just to make them feel that yes, they didn't consult them. You never know. Just like cinnamon. Allah said, I'm surprised that that was a lesson. Um, yes, yes or no. on a few occasions, you never know, your young one might surprise you with some ideas that they come with. If you're going to do something in the family, the husband should consult the wife, it's always good to do this. There's a
very good relationship in consultation. If you're an employer, and you consult your employees, there's a very good muhabba and love and you know, cooperation like cooperating with one another that works very well. When you have a boss that doesn't listen to his employees, you usually get trouble where you have a father or mother or someone who's in authority, someone who says I don't care what you say you just do what I say. You usually get trouble. Okay. Usually when we talk to each other, we consult there's a lot of good things. So, abilities. What does she do? She consults he says, Yeah, you and Mullah Omar counsel, afternoon if you
can give me a verdict about this matter. makan toccata Ratan Tata shadow, I'm not going to make a decisive
and absolute determined decision until you will witness or give your verdicts and what you think your opinions? I want to hear those first.
Okay, design number 32. So her, you know, soldiers army, the people who are in the not so not the soldier army at that time, sorry. They had obviously soldiers, they had their armies, but the representatives of those were inside that Council, like the General of the Army or the general of you know, the Minister of something, they were all there. So they said now, hello, Lou. What in what Uber Singh Shadi. their opinion was abilities. We have fought before and we are very good at fighting and we have great power and we have proven we've got a proven history of how we have taken on armies while Emerald Lake, but we leave it to you and God mad at that money. Do what you like.
Now, they were also really good because it's like, okay, we can fight we're ready to fight just tell us to fight and fight. But we'll leave it to you what what is it that you want us to do? Because they know that this woman is a level headed woman. She's not an emotional woman. And these are the best people you can have in power.
Now what she does is she then speaks and number 34. She says in Alma, Luke, Eva Hello Korean as
well, when kings enter a city, meaning they come in to take over a city. When kings do that they usually corrupt the entire city. they'll destroy the city. If we go to war right now salamandre salomo come here maybe you can win.
But if you find our city of Sabah is going to be destroyed, yes or no? Will war will be destroyed many lives will be lost. Many monuments have been got will be will be destroyed. Whether Aloo Isaiah Alisha Adela this is this is not political science that we're studying.
Quran has got every single science you want inside but this is political science. This woman wherever she's saying, she is now talking political science. She said whether Aloo Isaiah Talia Avila, the whole reason why kings do this whole reason why armies do this whole reason why presidents and others will do this is they want to turn
The most supreme and most dignified people and the highest people in a country, they want to turn them into the lowest. That is the reason why they do it. There's no other reason. And this is war.
Anyone out there who's having war, I want to think about his brothers and sisters for a moment. Anyone out there who's having war, a lot of the wars out there is because they want to turn someone who's in power into someone who has no power. That's what it's about. It's like, Hey, you beat me bigger than you. You begin to make Okay, let's go and fight. you punch me one I want you to you give me three adjectives for
you try and bring your ammunition against me. I'll bring my army guns, you bring your arm against me, okay, I'll try to build to rate you.
And then you try nuke me on EQ before you can meet me and that's what it is. It's just, it becomes knifes, it becomes very egotistic it's all about, I'm gonna show you who's big. That's what it's about. Who's big. That's all it's about. And it's really sad. Most of these fights in the world are to do with who's big, and who's who's can make who's small. So she then adds on a beautiful thing I remember
a scholar said to me once that this is a this is a lot of, you know, telling us this through the mouth of Bill keys for a big reason.
Right at the end of this verse, I'm number 34. student number 27. She could have stopped it Allah could have stopped quoting her at Avila. All at inland maloca Nevada Hello Korea. Sangha Isaiah Allah Allah and Allah could have carried on saying what anymore Silla tuna la Hindi had eaten finale rotten Bhima she could have she could have just carried on. But no, Allah added a statement of bilharzia what Kira Lika falou like that the carry on doing now that means will key said until the day of judgment or until you know time will go on. Until time will go on.
kings will always do this.
they'll destroy cities don't destroy people just to show who's big. She then added on she said and the lesson for us is that look people will carry on fighting if you think that look, you know there was a time in my life. I thought Subhana Allah we had the bad 60s we have the bad 70s and 80s Okay, you know, how worse can it get hopefully gets better because police should be learning army should be learning surveillance is getting better things should get better on the earth, right? No, they don't. They don't. I used to get frustrated as you think man now living in the 90s. And thinking you know, should get better. But still crimes are happening. crimes are happening to another level. And
then you get to the naughties. You think you know, they should stop, but they don't stop. Now I'm convinced what she said, basically said is the thing that people will carry on doing this.
But just because people do it, you shouldn't make your world miserable. You should just carry on doing the best you can do and try to be the better of the two people that might be fighting. She then says we're in Mozilla to be hadiya. She called Sonoma County, she said, she said, I'm going to call some of you appoint some of you to take a really good gift to sue them. And Alison, you will travel from here all the way to Jerusalem. And you will personally handed over to Solomon and then I want to know what he does in return.
Okay, and this, this woman is clever. This woman is intelligent. You know what this teaches us is if you can't beat someone,
and you're fearing that you might get beaten. The best thing to do is why
not bribed I wouldn't use the word bribe
Okay, just make it neutral. Make it even
if they want to get one over you, you think I can get one over them. But I'm probably gonna be beaten. The best thing to do is to make a level this woman is very clever.
Very clever. So what she does is she sends a good gift a really nice gift that if a king was to receive it was would say whoa, as nice. So what does the gift tell you? If it gives comes to a king first it tells you that these people don't want to fight
this friendship dolphin friendship to me. Second thing it says is that
they give me a gift. I should basically be good enough to give them a gift in return with these kings and queens is to do in the past, when a gift used to come a really good gift. A gift would be like something that you could treasure as a king. We're not talking about a small gift here we're talking about something a king or queen can treasure. something great is that you think by the least that I owe something to these people. But the minimum The bottom line is they're not here to fight and they won't be a threat to me.
So she said I want to see what he sends. That is the mufa Syrian say there's two reasons why she did this. One is the one I just said, which is she's trying to make a level.
Second is she heard is another seed is that she heard that prophets, if he is a true profit than profits don't take worldly gains. He said, He's let us start with Bismillah Ar Rahman AR, and we chose his only ruling the earth on the earth because of Allah. If that's true, and he has no selfish gains, then I'm going to put him to the test and give him a big gift. If he accepts it. He is not true to his word.
If he does, yeah, if he doesn't accept me, he's not true to his word. But if he rejects it, then I know that he must be a prophet. He must be one of those who truly claims to be a prophet you do in Santa. Yeah, that's why she said, You're masala. Now, the gift comes to Solomon, these, you know, these members of Bill cases, you know, sovereignty, they come all the way over to Jerusalem 2000 kilometers away, and they come to the outskirts of Solomon Allison's kingdom. And they are amazed when they saw the sheer size of Solomon, Elijah lambs kingdom, they thought
we can fight these people. We can't fight these people. They were convinced they as they moved into Solomon ally slammed kingdom, the more they moved in. They know they thought, you know what, there is no match against this king.
And as they came closer and closer to his actual palace, there were armies out there ready to meet them on both sides. There were those with swords. And these ambassadors came all the way through the line of Swords all the way to into the palace of salamanders. And when they saw the magnificence of what he has, and the power he has, they just presented the gift to Solomon ashram, and they waited. And Solomon Islam said, this is iron number 36. He said to me Do not only be man.
He looked at them and he said, you're trying to bribe me now.
You're trying to give me wealth. You think I don't have enough?
Money? Allahu hieromartyr what Allah has given me is better than what Allah has given you. You take it back. Well, Anton, we had the Yeti Come on. You should be happy with your own gift. Take it back to your queen Sheba. And go and tell this
go and say that I've rejected you. You give now they took the gift back and they thought you know what? Oh, there's gonna be some serious trouble here. So they were they zoom me back to Yemen to tell her that listen, Queen, you better make your move.
And Solomon, Allah salam, he sent a message. He said he regio la he said go back contentedness. I'm going to bring you an army now because you're trying to bribe me and this is strength. You know, maybe it was a good gesture from pesto. Suleiman Alessandra has to show that he's not going to take it even if it's a good gesture. He's not going to accept it. Why? Because the moment you accept the gift like that you've neutralized yourself. And he has to show who's in power because of Allah sake not because he's got an unselfish game. So he said, Look, tell them I'm going to come with an army lackey Bella beha. You've got no way of getting no way of overtaking this army. There is no
challenge. When I look regional minha I will take all of you out of Sabah, the kingdom of Sabah out of the disgraced cinema Assalam is ready to get his arms ready and to and to do this. These people come all the way back to Malik Malika Saba, they come to the queen of the Queen Sheba, the queen of Saba. They say to her straightaway, look, he looking bad. Right, she straightaway realized that he must be someone who's not for any selfish gains. She gets her people together. She says, Come on, let's let's start making a move towards Suleiman Elisa Lam, to try and get his attention before he comes out comes down with his army. So now they've just left and Suliman Allah, Allah had ye from
Allah, that they've left he had inspiration from Allah, that they have left Saba to come towards Jerusalem.
So now Solomon Allah salam, he knew this. He said straightaway, he called his, his coaches together. And he said, which one of you will be able to bring for me? The Throne of bilities because you know, she's got this massive throne. I want to surprise her. And he's going to now start some tests is going to take
On a couple of levels to try and bring her to Islam. Now what he does is something magnificent and inshallah next next episode Allah will talk about this and hopefully we can finish up the story as well. What he does is something really significant because he tells he shows us that with an intelligent person you have to give intelligent data.
You can't give the same dollar to every person with intelligent person has intelligent data. So he's going to prepare now, some some some ways of making her believe in Allah xojo. Okay, inshallah.
