And if they do that then they will have gained protection from me for their lives and property, unless [they commit acts that are punishable] in Islam, and their reckoning will be with Allah.” [Bukhari & Muslim]

As you all can assume, and understand, the topic of today's class is going to be Jihad and it's not and a very juicy topic and there's a lot to discuss, and inshallah we'll try to pack as much as we can in this class that we have. But first things first, we always spend a little time remembering the companion and talking about the companion who narrates the honey. So the hoodies today that we are that we hear is narrated by a companion by the name of Abdullah bin amo of the loving Mama, viola Anima, is a son of all monomaniacal thought the famous the great American football, who is known to be the 40th to hobby to accept Islam, who was also the second successor after the Prophet
said a long while he was seven. I'm wondering Katara Viola Juan sent our beloved Ahmad was a very special person.
He was known as shaquil Islam, he was known as an Imam and foodwatch, the leader, the one who was in front of people the role model, he accepted Islam when he was young. And then he migrated with his father to Madina, munawwara and in another narration, he migrated after his father, regardless of the long one did migrate openly announcing to people he was going so there were some family members of his that went along with him. And it is stated that loving homage to the Allahu Anima also was with his father. Now, him a lot and his sister Huff's a half so later on will become the wife of the prophets that allamani was sent him. They were both born from one mother and her name was Xena
bintan of their own.
I'm one of the law one and half side of the law Han have both accepted Islam before their father did it in one narration that we can find any Mom What have you done with ally Alessia he narrates it even she has who says that indeed have sinoma in the hub SATA webinar on us llama cobbler on hops on both accepted Islam before on one of the last one, while I'm as Lama abou whom I can Abdullah bin Ebner naquin Minh severely senior and he says that when they accepted when the father accepted Islam, Islam, Abu Houma, I'm loving I'm going to do law one around that time was seven years old.
When he came to Madina, munawwara when the time came for the Battle of but he was rejected as a warrior because of his young age. And then he says, I came to the province of the lohani was Saddam was when soldiers were being recruited for the Battle of ohad. And again, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam refused to accept me because I was young. He says the first battle I participated with the Prophet sent along it was said and within my life was the Battle of hundal was the Battle of the trenches. This is one of the prompts that along while he was said I'm accepted him
Mujahid says that shahida Ebner Armada
But how what are you doing a senator, that if I'm gonna be alone, I will love and I'm going to do law one participated in the conquest of Mecca mahkamah. And at that point his life he was 20 years old. He narrates abundantly from the office that a long line and he will sit on a loving on one of the along one narrates first and foremost directly from the profits that allamani was sent them. But other than the profits that allow Huawei was set on because when the profits that allow it was sent and passed away, he was roughly 20 in some 20 and some change 22 maybe 23. Since he was so young, he then used his life to go to other companions, who had heard from the prophets of Allah while he was
sitting for many more years, who accepted Islam and were much, much more mature. He went to them and he studied from them and learn from them and learn from them. And he narrates from his father, I'm not going to clip up he narrates from a Lakota city for the last one year, it's mathematically a long one, I leave it alone one below the long one. So Hey, brother, your loved one, I'm in a bit of a br zaven fabric, his own uncle zeta saga with your loved one, because of the love of your loved one commandment talhah Aslam, hafsa, his sister Ayesha and many more, these are just to name a few great companions that have to love and honor the law one narrative from
He is known for many things. And I'll be honest with you when I was preparing for this class, and I was going through the love and I'm going to do a lot of one's biography. Even though I have already covered his biography. Once in this class, we've already read a Hadeeth narrative about the love and I'm going to do a long one. But I fought for my own benefit, I would read more. And as I started reading the biography a second time using different books, the gems that I was reading, they were so beautiful that I thought to myself, if I didn't share them, I would be at fault. They inspired me and hopefully they can inspire all of us. This person consisted of so many beautiful
characteristics. From you know, his courage, which he was known for. If I'm not the law, Holly, he says that a glove nomina Viola Juan participated in battles in Sham in Iraq and bussola. And in Persia, his nephew narrates from, I'd love it to be a long one. He says the one of the love and Ahmad was in Iraq. The soldiers from both armies came in front of one another, and they would have this thing called the mobile the mobile dozer would be where each army would send one person forward, who would be their strongest or quickest, and that person would come in, in opposition to the strongest or the quickest from the other side. And they said, when the Muslims came to get off,
there was one battle in particular, I remember that phenomena. The last one was the one sent for from the Muslim side.
And the Armada battles are 150 times, Iraq for khattala, who after that celebra, who end up loving the last one, he put him down, and also was able to capture and take his possessions
of love, and I'm one of the last one, he was always with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was one of the companions, that not only was he a companion himself, but his sister was the wife of the Prophet that allamani was set up. So he had the insight. There's one narration that you'll find in Bahati that I'm loving I'm going to do long one says that
when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was alive, if any person saw a dream, they would come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and share their dream. And the prophets of Allah who it was cinema tell us Bushra meaning glad tidings or the prophets of Allah while he was set on what interpret the dream, the dream for us. He said, I was a young man. And at times, I would sleep in the machine for the purpose of the long line, he was at him. One day, I was just lying in the mall sleeping. And while I was sleeping, I saw a dream. And a dream. He says, I saw two angels who caught a hold of me, and they took me to a fire. And the fire was built with walls, meaning that there was
no way to escape it, it would encompass a person, just like a wall is made, and it has walls that surround it. So he said that they brought me nearby to it. And I looked inside, and I saw this fire was there and there were people inside the fire who I knew as well. So I started saying, he said I started reciting, I will do Billahi min enough that I seek protection from Allah Subhana horadada from this fire, for he then says the angels then said to me that don't worry, this isn't for you, you won't be harmed by this fire. He then says I woke up and I went to my sister Huff's. And he said, I told her the story and I said to her, can you please ask the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam what he thinks of this dream. So his sister hopes that comes to the process that along with it was sediment, she asked the Prophet that a lot of money was said and what his thoughts were on the dream. And the Prophet said a long while he was Saddam's response to her was neoma Raja Abdullah Locanda you suddenly middle name that Abdullah nama dear brother is such an awesome guy. Only if you spend a little bit more time praying to Allah.
You know, and this dream was a reminder for him that, you know, be more punctual, be more particular on your deeds put a cushion between yourself from the fire of home. This was an interpretation of the dream. And the Hadeeth close off by saying the hypotheticals love that after that day. I'd love to do law one would only sleep a small portion of it.
Otherwise majority of the night who would be awake in is 100 Scylla. Making it bother. The best way to gauge a person is to find out what people from the same generation have say about him. After the generations after a while we speak of the earlier generation, hopefully, minus the millennials. Otherwise people always speak good to previous generations. But if you want to find out about a person's true value is you ask the people who lived during the same generation, so returned to the companions like our beloved Was it a loved one, he says that there was no person from the youth of what age who had more control over his inner desires, and had so little desire for worldly
pleasures. As much as I had seen an 11 out of your loved one. I shadowed your loved one Haha, says, Mara, I had an asthma Lil amaryl overly minimum Yama, I have never seen anyone who is so particular on holding on to the original teachings of the purpose of the law so meaning just doctor doc letter to letter he was so particular people were moving on new society, new expansion, new inventions, and everyone was trying to, you know, move forward and be progressive, but I'm loving. The old one was one of those people who always stuck to the original teachings of the Prophet said a lot. He said, um, you know, he always wanted to come back to the foundations and see what the teachings were
there. I was having a severe he says that we would come to even be Laila, even I believe I was a famous scholar, one of the greatest one of the greatest scholars of Islamic history. We would come to him and we would ask him questions. So he said a person by the name of Abu Salim Abdullah Han came to me later and he asked him for call Amaro kind of butter in the oven, who was the last one a greater man in your sight? Or was his son, which one do you think was greater? So even a B, Laila responded back by saying, so when when this question was asked, everyone said by Lama Omar must have been the grade one. So you've been given a B Laila responded back by St. Paula, in the Americana
fees a man and Lisa who fee Novato went about the fees Amanda and Lisa houfy. Nadine. He said on one of your la Juan lived in a generation where there were so many people that were similar to him. I mean, I'm gonna be a long one we all agree had a very unique rank. But you have to realize while he was alive, who else was alive, I will look into the details of your loved one, you have a smile with your loved one. And one of your loved ones shared a platform with 10 nine different people who are also all promised paradise. But he said when you come to life, or even no matter the law one, many of those giants have passed away. So when we look at the webinar, I'm gonna be alone one, there was
actually no one to stand on par with him. He was unique of his own time, not saying of the loving Armand was greater than the top of your last one. But he's talking about how unique of the webinar one of the last one was in his generation, and there was no one that can match to him saved and we'll see you obsess.
If I had ever seen anyone in my life, who was definitely going to gender lotia hit to the I hadn't. If I were to ever testify for someone and the human and agenda, let's say to live drama, I will testify for them to love and honor your loved one and my because of the man in whom he was saved to Google saves in another tradition, kind of Amara yoma matta the day on or the date of your last one passed away.
There was no or very little hay that remained in the world. Not to say there were other good people but he would there was so much that he took away with him.
Abu Jaffa about the says that the Ulla one when he would be sitting in a gathering and if you heard the name of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam there, there wasn't a single time that he heard the name of the Prophet that allamani was set him but tears wouldn't come out of his eyes and he would start crying. And when he would narrate How do you find the prophets that Allahu Allah will send them lie azido Allah and he would never add to the Hadith of the Prophet along with that, and he would never deduct anything from the Hadith of the Prophet that allamani was saddam, whatever, you can see that he committed Rahu and there was no person who can compare to other love and I'm going to do long one
in his Lupton how accurate he was when he narrated from the pumps that alone while he was at him. He was a simple person. Even though his father was a halifa. He didn't have a lot of wealth he didn't come from he didn't have like nice big sofas in his home or a chauffeur and a nice limousine outside of the lab at all. None of the Alolan was a very simple person.
When one person says that I entered into the house of Abdullah Ahmad de la Hwan, well, I thought the hell to Allah ignore Amara for call one two coolessay in CBT human assassin I made a rough estimate, I wanted to guess how much that I valued everything that I'm loving, I'm out of the alone one own, from the furniture to the foundation, everything I wanted to see how much everything was valued out in his home. And he says there is no chance that all of his possessions could go past 100 that's how simple this man was. asked for his love for the purpose of Allahu alayhi wa sallam. He was so intense for loving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that nafion says, lo ennovata eliminate
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, La Paz imagine that if you were to say of the love and honor of your loved one follow the prophets of Allah while he was set on and for how he was
Observe the prophet and how he would imitate the Prophet. If you saw that and witnessed it, you would think the man was insane. I believe in all of your loved one because he was young. There's actually a moment in his life that once the Prophet said a lot while he was cinema using the washroom, he climbed the wall to see how the Prophet is using the washroom. So he can follow that from that to right, and you'll find this how do you find any remember with our grandmother, long Allison and other collections too, and we learn the posture, and later on, he got a little heat for doing that, obviously, but he had no foul intention for him. He wanted to learn how to process that
along while he was in him and was doing things he would follow. Matthew also narrates that on the last one, he followed every single trace and every action of the Prophet along while he was at him, if the Prophet prayed, so lost somewhere, he would go to that exact same place and reach the law there too. If the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam sat underneath a tree of love and honor the law, one would go to that exact same tree and sit under that tree, that kind of neuroma for kandovan. Amara yasutaka shahdara and even though Have you gone to la linea, it's in the Sierra Nevada, for your super goofy osterley helma Lee, Kayla Davis, he will go to that tree because he
knew the Prophet said underneath that tree and he would sit underneath that tree. And he would, he would go on his own and water that tree to make sure that tree would never dry up. Because his beloved son in law while he was set him sat underneath that tree, this is what you call immense love. So many examples, so many examples of His love. They say amongst the companions that if you ever wanted to know to come to people during this harvest period, or that that'd be a period had doubt on which thing was the true center, there were two people sharing two different ideas. And they weren't sure they weren't sure which one they should practice. They would go grab the love and
the love Anoma and they would look at him and whatever he was doing, they would take that to be the default soon. Because they knew this man, you know, where are those people gone in our community? Who if you want to learn what the dean is, rather than having to ask them what do you do?
Just go and look at them. whatever they're doing, that's the the teaching of the dean because you know, these people are so particular one of our teachers who taught a study I'll never forget this one day in class he made a he made a claim he said if you ever see me do something against the sun not publicly
come and correct me. And if I don't fix myself then don't study Hadith by me because I'm not worthy of teaching. How do you anymore? You know, and I kid you not as students we would always observe him then after that day you know what better thing to do than to correct your teacher is nothing like that. That'll stroke your ego more. And we'd sit there and look at him and I kid you not the man was spot on. You know, always everything. small thing big thing. One of my teachers Shifu Rahim Raja Raja prolong his life I studied with him.
I have never seen a person who followed the sooner like him. Small things I remember once I was taking him
to his car. He, mother. So when we would study these, we used to have these huge volumes. These they were the books that we used to study from a very big back in the day printing huge books was a thing. So he would carry his book and we'd walk into his car. And we'd stand watch him if you've ever seen in England, the driver sits on one side of the car, the right side of the car. So when he would get in the car, he would twist his body like as if, as if he was trying to snap his spine when getting in the car. And I remember when they asked him shift, what's the limbal thing about why don't you just sit in the car like a normal person? How do you twist your body back and forth, and
you have this huge book you're carrying in your hand? So he would say
I have a desire to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet said a lot of setup. I said there's no sin of twisting your body, by the way. I mean, I that was me, I said she was sitting there is this. He said, Don't you know the honey tells us that when the prophets of Allah when he was set them on Mount his animal, he would always put his right foot over first. So when I'm trying to enter from the right side of the car, which bottom I bought, which part of the body makes contact with him? The left side, right. So what he would do is put his right foot in and then pull his left foot in. I'm not sure if that makes any sense, right? When you go to the parking lot, right? He would put his
right foot in the car, but kind of shifting himself on one hip, and then slide the other foot and and this man wasn't like 20 years old, he was in his 50s. And some of us may look at that and think, what an insane thing to do. This stupid thing grow up guy. That's what we would say. But when the nasty team is gonna die, but when people love something when they love someone when they want to imitate them, they'll go above and beyond and I'm loving. The amount one is an example of that. He's watering a tree that the Prophet said a long while he was set on once upon a time sat underneath, and he would come there regularly and he will sit underneath that tree himself.
I'd love it. If your loved one was also known for his worship. One day someone asked not enough that my cat is not my cat is not even an armada human z. What does
one do inside his home? Tell us about his a homi Bhabha, so he said, look at Punahou. You won't be able to imitate him so it's better off you guys just do whatever you can do and not try to match up the love and armor. So they said no, no. Tell us tell us. He
said okay, I will do liquidly Salatin, one must have a female beta Houma. He will do will do for every seller. And after praying the Salah until the next seller all he would do is sit at home and read the Quran. That's what I'm loving I'm going to be alone one day look like we'll do for Han Solo, we'll do Corolla that was kind of like the summary of his life. And he also says, In the nama gana fighter who got a shot fija Martin battiato at that, even though I'm only allowed one one day missed a shot salah and Gemma, so he didn't sleep for the rest of that night. He kept himself away, pushing him in a bed pushing himself going forward and forward and forward.
He was a very generous person, he would free so many of his servants and so many slaves that Matthew says mamatha, Amara Hata alpha alpha insan and Azad. He has freed over 1000 people from slavery, and I want you to or morozova or even more than that, put that into put that into your mind how much money this person invested. One day a person came to him. And he came to nothing. He came to the lab Anoma and said to him, I'm the law because of the love anomalies to love freeing slaves. And if you ever saw any of his slaves had piety or they had an inclination towards doing a Baba, he would say to his servant, that what good are you what good will I be as a person if I stop you from doing
you're a bother because you have to serve me go you're free. So if he saw any of his servants becoming a little pious, he will set him free. So what happened was all of a sudden all of his servants started acting. Mashallah, they all they all came in the machine, they all gave a little extra time to the magician.
So one person came to him and said, Yeah, bah bah, bah, bah, bah, bah hum Illa De Luca, that Oh, above the ramen, which was his cornea. They said, these guys are all fooling you. They're deceiving you, they're not pious people there's acting pies for five minutes a day so you can free them. And I'm gonna I'm gonna do a lot one word responses and respond back by saying, Man haha Anna Bella he in hada and Allah, then whoever wishes to fool us, fool us, whoever wishes to fool us, for the sake of Allah, that I'm pleased to be fooled by that person. It's better for me to believe that person is closer to Allah than for me to believe that that person is lying. what little I get that I'm
assuming that person is lying. And look how much how beautiful that how nice it is for me to see these people doing either. You know, this is a beautiful mindset if you think about it. Yeah. Don't not wanting to not wanting to think ill of other people.
He wants to read the I mean, in Ludhiana amaranthaceae oolitic, Allah, verse number 16, of sort of Hadid and he cried and cried and cried until he couldn't read the Quran anymore. Now where he was at the forefront when it came to worship and simplicity and seeking knowledge. He was at the back of the line when it came to politics of the love and honor of your loved one had zero interest in politics. People came to him and they said to him, a hustler the Allahu Han came to him and said to him, let him Academy under Nazi Makana summon and fitna. I thought we're gonna honor Apollo. And they say you don't know what to say to him. When NASA Baccarat Boone, Nova Rocha, that Oklahoma, you
are the leader of the people, your father was a leader of the people, people are happy with you, people are pleased with you, you're the best of us. Come, we will get back to you. We can elect you as a president of the United States of America. And I love it. I'm one of the lucky one response was that I have no interest in leadership at all. One the fifth and I occurred between the different sahabas. And when the wars occurred of the loving Amato their loved one throughout it remain apolitical. Because he knew that that was a place for other people. While he his job was to teach people to spread knowledge. And that's where he felt most comfortable. This teaches us that not
every person needs to be politically engaged. And not every person needs to be a specialist in Islamic Islamic sciences, every person can find their own field.
There is no need for every Imam in the country to be a specialist in comparative religion. Because there are some people who are actually good at it. They've given their life to it, they've studied it, and the people who are experts in that field, when someone comes to the Imams and says I need help in comparative religion, rather than becoming the expert in quoting the Bible, My responsibility is to take them to someone who is an expert, that you know this person or here, this person is an expert. Why don't you go to this person, when someone comes to you and says, I need marriage counseling, and you're an imam of the community. I can give advice on marriage. I can quote
a few ahaadeeth on marriage, but I'm not a counselor by any means. So it's the only appropriate thing for me to do is tell that person that this is the person you need to go to this person can help you. Someone's asked you for medical advice. And yes, that happens to chef What's your opinion on this medical issue? What medicine Do you think I should take? Can you lead us to hotter for me? And you have to tell them that this is not my position. I can't give you medical advice. You need to go to the doctor book an appointment and go ahead and go get advice from there. Reach out to people who are experts in each field, and I'm loving I'm gonna be a long one he refused.
However, there was so much he was such a famous person. He was a celebrity of his time. So when the no there was a noise that maybe people might give allegiance to Abdullah bin Ahmad maybe Abdullah bin Ahmad might become the next honeypot. He might become the next honeypot.
So hi Jasmine used to he wrote a letter trust the love and honor of your loved one.
And he said in their Bologna under Catholicism,
it has reached me that you will desire to be the halifa hijab minister is writing this struggle loving Omar, who everybody knows is a political but because so many people are following him. He says he says it has reached me that you desire halifa and then he says what in the hell is the holy i in Walla? Walla, you and silica is not appropriate for a impotent person, a in a stingy person, or a jealous person. he's implying all three of these characteristics exist in
a loving home with your loved one. Save nominally a loved one. We all know he was a humble, pious person, but there's nothing wrong with speaking up to an oppressor or a liar when they make accusations against you. And we're going to talk about that later ahead. When we talk about Jihad and fitout in a moment, so I'm going to be a lot one responded back by saying another coterminal philosopher.
As for you claim that I have a desire for flat face, I have no desire for it at all. Well, now here I'm in Bali, and it's not it hasn't even occurred to my heart.
Well, I'm not gonna lie. Furman Gemma kita Bala he lays philosophy. As for you saying that I'm impotent. The one who has memorized the Quran can never be an impotent person. Then he says to him, woman does a kata who Felisa people healing. As for the person who gives his car, he is not able to heal, he is not a stingy person, he gives us very beautiful, eloquent response back to him.
However, as you know, rumors aren't that easy to settle down, no matter how much you tell people isn't true. If you tell people, I'm not a violent person, I'm a decent guy. But if the rumors are already there, people are going to follow the rumors. Someone accuses you in society of having a an illicit relationship with another person while you were in the MSA. And you say, I had nothing to do with that. biLlahi I had nothing to do with that. Here's the proof talk to these people. You give every proof. But what are the people gonna do?
No, no, our son can't marry the sister because she had an illicit relationship in the hot arm relationship. And we don't want that to happen. You know, they're not willing to overlook the past. First thing. And second thing, no matter how much you tell them, it's wrong. What are they going to rely on the juicy story, they don't want to rely on what possibly may be true.
So during this time, have a good luck in the long run. And Hi, Jasmine used to exchanging letters A person came to a beloved person came to have the love and honor the last one from the Sham area.
And he took his spear and he hit a beloved Armada, the last one with his with on his leg. And this cause I'm loving, I'm gonna do long ones like to begin to infect. And as a result of it, he became very sick, which ultimately will lead to his passing away. So hi, Jasmine user have realized that it was one of his supporters that did it. So he became very sad. And he came to Lebanon. But the reason why he was sad was because of the love and it was such a great person and he was worried that what if it comes on to me What if he makes a law against me? For the halali who had yada yada Ruda who for color? Lo alamanda de la Saba caerlaverock, Toronto. Hi, Jasmine, use of certified found out who
did this to you I will kill that person. So I will have in honor of your laquan said and tell her the US Attorney. You don't have to look for anyone else. You're the one who actually did this to me. That person was just a result of it. You're the one who picked the fight with me. You're the one who started writing letters to me, you're the one who came after me. And then you instigated people. And finally someone came and pulled the trigger. The scholars they described the love and honor of your loved one they say he was known for coloring his beard and generally he would color it with Hulu or he would color it with with zafran he will let his beard grow unless the season of hydrometer would
come and that's when he would cut his beard whatever was beyond one fist. His hair would be very long and it would sit on his shoulders. He shot him in Ottawa he says that I hate to shout out Omar younger he will monkey Bay he flew to LA he fucka belani that one day I came to the lab and I'm gonna do a long one and I saw his hair so beautifully. It was right on his shoulders. And then I was brought forward maybe he was maybe he was very young at the time he said I was brought forward to the lab and I'm one of the along one of the login I'm gonna do long one then kissed him on the forehead. Muslim in the Han says that I saw abdominal the last one wearing his pants and his pants
would end at the middle of his shin. I'm gonna be a long one would wear a turban and he would let the corner of the turban come and hang beneath between his shoulders.
A long one is also known for her for wearing generally commonly wearing a black turban. This was the color that he preferred. he narrates over 2630 hottie from the props that Alon use them. So that's the narrator. Now we come to the narration itself.
As you heard in the translation, we will be talking about Jihad and war and the struggle.
It's narrations like these that may cause
doubt in the heart of the hearts of Muslims.
If you ever have a doubt in your heart about Islam, get it cleared. Having one doubt in your heart is much worse than committing Zina.
Why is that? It's because Zina doesn't take a person outside of Islam.
While having a doubt in your heart, most definitely could. Because doubts only grow and grow and grow. And the longer they stay in your heart, the longer you ignore them, the deeper their roots settlement, and then you begin to believe that what your doubt is, is a reality because there has been no clarification for you. So whenever you have a doubt in your heart, give it attention. You know, never let it slide, if you're a doubt is a result of you committing sins and learn to compartmentalize, you know, there are people we were talking about this earlier on with some students in class, that many people who choose not to believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala or don't
constructed religion, their issue, their issue isn't necessarily with Allah subhanahu wa tada or with religion or they don't have an intellectual reasoning to disagree with the existence of a law. For most of the people. It is a spiritual ailment. They have their issues that are going on in life, their own personal addictions, and they want to justify them but they find the Quran says very clearly you can't do this. And the best thing to do is just deny the Quran. Because as long as the Quran exists, what I'm doing is a crime and I'm a criminal. I don't want to carry that on my conscious. So we have to learn to compartmentalize. If you commit a sin, there's no need for you to
There's no need for you to reject your deed. believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala however, learn to make Toba at the end of your sin and know that inshallah Allah subhana wa tada will guide you one day out of the deep, well that chiffon is hanging you in and things will change. You just have to learn to trust a law and believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala Oh, man, you have to look a lot of law he for one hospital, there was a lady who came to me once she said, shift.
Very soon I'll have a miscarriage, she was far into her pregnancy. She said I don't know if I will have the ability to be patient. I said to her woman, you have to walk Kannada life or hospital. If you want patients learn to rely on a law, when you rely on Allah, Allah will give patients to you as a token,
earning patients on your own is very hard. building it in yourself. Rely on that a lot is the easiest way to get patients, you know, to submit your first online. That's it, Allah subhanho wa Taala will take care of it. And I stand on the side from there. So when it comes to this claim that Muslims are always out there for blood and their blood thirsty and Muslims are a military people, Muslims are violent people. And you know, this is exactly what's being repeated on the news. And if you look at right wing media, this is exactly what's happening. They're showing Muslims are always very angry. And the young Muslim growing up in the US who may not have exposure to traditional
Islamic literature, or may not visit the budget as regularly as they should or may not be a part of gatherings like this. They fall prey to this propaganda. They fall prey to this that everyone's saying that Muslims are violent, therefore Muslims must be violent. And that's one on one phobia. You want to create a phobia, create a thesis, create a theory and just repeat it a million times and the person in front of you will believe it. You know, in our when I was when I was young, our parents would always say put
the dogs in about you. Even if it was a poodle when I grew up. I always thought the poodle will bite me I didn't realize that if the poodle came to bite me I had the ability to give it a tomato. Like, get it off my back. I had that ability Allah gave it to me, but in my mind, what do they always think that the dog is gonna bite you that the cat's gonna bite you and cat biting you? That doesn't happen by the way you guys know that right? Like let's not act like cats don't bite.
So that's this symbol propaganda just because people say it doesn't make it a reality. Okay. But at the same time, I don't want to build this image that Muslims are not tough people are Muslims cannot be combated if need be. Our Islam doesn't teach us to be completely passive. If someone says that Islam is a passive religion, and there is no quote unquote,
recommend recommendation of Muslims standing up for themselves or going to war all together some has no war at all. And that isn't true either. That's a false attribution to our Deen. Yes, it is true. That war pathol is a part of our DNA and will not turn away from that. It's not my palms will even encourage it to us. You know, in the face of oppression, someone's oppressing you, someone's oppressing mankind, it becomes necessary for you as a Muslim to stand up. So let's not say that war isn't a part of our Deen. And that's actually something that's from basic humanity, that you see oppression, you stand up for it. The Prophet tells us No, no, I'm in concurrent follow up, you see
something wrong happening. Stand up and fix it with your hand. And if you can't, then with your voice, and if you can't, then at least step away with your heart and don't worry
Like it, dislike that thing in the face of someone who stops you from worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah subhana wa tada sent us through this rule to be worshipped him. So whatever the causes whoever it is, if you're wanting to stop a Muslim from worshiping Allah Subhana, WA Tada, if you're going to stop them from practicing their Deen, if you're not gonna allow them to pray, somehow, you're not going to allow them to practice what they viewed to be a fundamental obligation of their religion, then they're going to be frustrated. Any human being would, what they viewed to be a fundamental principle of their life. If you prevent them from that, then there's going to be
frustration. And Muslims are also a part of that. Or you take away their basic right of living from them, you put unnecessary boycotts on them, you, you sanction them, you oppress them, you take their lands away, and then you build on their lands. You can't take away someone's land and then build on it and say, Oh, look, that guy there is oppressed. That guy right there is super aggressive, that guy, there's militant, that guy there, you know, put a hat on him. You can't say that. Because if you hurt someone, if you swing at them, naturally, what are they going to do in return,
they're gonna swing right back at you. In the face of taking your right someone's taking your right away, you have the right Islam gives you the permission and actually encourages that you go and take your right and if you die in the closet, but if someone is attacking your home, and they're trying to steal your home and you stop that person, it sounds doesn't tell you to go run the other way. You know, you stand in preventing your guard your family because if you're gonna run away, it's possible the life of your family members will be at risk. So you stand there, you you save your family members, you protect your land, and in the cost in the in the in the course of that, if you lose
your life, that's a form of Shahada. You've taken martyrdom because you stood to protect your, your man, your family, your and these are all things these are all times that Islam actually encourages it protecting yourself as well. And we were talking about this I just gave an example about earlier on, that people will try to draw this image of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he was very violent person and he was a very mean person and wanted to kill people. They're skipping 53 years of the life of the prophets of Allah Han he was sent him in Mocambo carnamah until the Muslims arrived in Madina munawwara until the Muslims don't step foot into Madina, munawwara the Muslims are
not even given permission to engage in battle. The actual verses of of battle were revealed right before the migration as evidence from a lot on areas in the CETA. He says that right before the Prophet said a long line he was sort of migrates to Madina, munawwara that's when the verses of putana were actually revealed within an Olivia ukata Luna, the unknown bully mother all these years were oppressed for 53 years. If Muslims were oppressed, they wouldn't say anything. You know, the Sahaba felt like punching a person back who would punch them, but the Prophet sallallahu it would send them a say to them Subbu Subbu Patience, patience, patience. They conveniently quote the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the battlefield, they completely they conveniently, quote the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in response to the companions, once he encourages them to go and fight against those broken agreements against them. They quote those Hadith without quoting that the opposition have broken agreement, without a quoting that the opposition plundered the Muslim lands, without quoting that the loosen the opposition, killed Muslims, you know, innocent people. Without quoting all of this, they conveniently jumped to the end of it and say, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Go and kill people. You know, there are two types of people I've
seen in my life, who take verses from the Quran and pigs take a hadith from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and quote them out of context, and will say that every command in the Quran and Hadith that says fight is not contextualized by any pre texts, rather pretense it's rather just an open statement that you're supposed to go and kill every human being you see, you know, there are two people that I've seen that have seen the fox news and their twin brother ISIS. These are the two people who share the exact same propaganda that Muslims are violent people every Muslim you see, you get you put you put them under the blade, but the other 1.8 billion Muslims that are in between
the that's not there. Go to any Muslim across the world and ask them what is your opinion regarding this? I have put on walkthrough him hate
him hate him. What does he
say? What does he
say? What is Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala does bodyweight ask any of them fascinating? What do they say? And each and every one of them are saying that each one of these ideas are contextualized This is the number one the first first principle in the book of extremists, extremism one to one, take a text and decontextualize it
extremism one on one and every faith does it. Every community has done it. You pull out a text you decontextualize it after remove the context from it. Now you reinterpret it and do whatever the heck you want to do with it, and then go around, you know pushing your own agenda. But these people forget that the Prophet sallallahu it was sent him even when he was told by Allah subhana wa tada when the ayah came down regarding Fidel, the Muslims didn't have a desire to fight. And the reason was because they were constantly taught by the prophet
To Be patient to be forgiving to overlook a lot of what that says in the Quran quotevalet communicate Allahu wa kuruvilla
that battle and a warfare was was ordained upon you and you dislike it. Well I saw encircling O'Shea and oh hater like him. Sometimes you may dislike something while there's good in there, a person walks in this door right now walks in the door there, and he picks up an innocent attendee of this crowd of the crowd and starts beating that person up. Those of us who don't like fighting will stand by the side and say, I don't like fighting. I don't like fighting. But sometimes doing something that you don't like, is unnecessary.
So you need to go and say that person's life. Well, I sent him Boucher and well, why Sherlock Holmes, sometimes you may like something, but it's not good for you. For you to remain that passive is actually not a good thing. You need to get up and do something to oppression, do something to that presser do something to fix the situation. There was a process in a long while he was some teachers and Muslims or gives them permission to engage in warfare. It's not barbaric warfare that we have today. Go and look at lands that Western countries have invaded, go and look at those lands and go and see what happened after those countries were invaded. You know, structures were broken
down, the financial system was destroyed, the economy plummets, politics crumbled down. While when the Muslims are coming on when they're going to the going to war one on one, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying you never burn any of their vegetation, don't burn any of their trees down, never break down any of their buildings don't destroy their water sources don't kill their animals. innocent but you know the so collateral damage, how we talk so much about collateral damage. And nowadays, collateral damages is viewed as kind of like nothing, who cares? Like it's cotton in the corner of the room, nobody cares about it. It's just there doesn't have any weight at
all. collateral damage. 10 people die from collateral damage. 15 people die from collateral damage. The problem is that a lot of money was suddenly selling this hobby one, no collateral damage. You have no permission to kill the child. You have no permission to touch a lady, you have no permission to touch an old person. You have no permission to fight against a person of religion, a religious person, a priest, a rabbi from the community, you don't fight against that person, you leave them unless they take arms against you then in defense, you fight yourself that you defend yourself, you fight back with them. Otherwise your advocates hear that it's not as a loose ended, he tells them
you can't mutilate them. You can't burn people alive. These are all etiquettes you need to make sure you can't you need to make sure that people that you're attacking are the people that you're supposed to be fighting against. You don't just go in haphazardly. And if you make a false calculation, and you kill an innocent person that's on your shoulders actually. There was one Sahabi by the name of Osama bin Zayed he was in the battlefield and he was fighting and there was a person he knocked Osama bin Zayed knocked this guy down and he was getting ready to kill him. And that person. He said La La La La Jolla, I believe in a lie in the messenger 73. Osama bin Zayed he killed
them anyway. The other Sahaba they saw this they became very upset he killed how many innocent people did I say?
He killed one innocent person, not 1000s who are being killed with drones or 1000 people that were just killed in a in a in an atomic bomb or anything like this not 1000s of people. One person that Sahaba immediately come back to Medina Manawa and they tell the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there was one person in the battle that was killed and that can't be justified. The Prophet said Who did?
Osama bin Zayed has brought forth the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to someone What did you do? He sent a messenger of Allah was getting ready to kill him. He said he read the Shahada not because he believed in a lion that will soon the reason why he read the Shahada phenomenal note, he read it he read it to run away from death. He was trying to run away. He was trying to run away from
the province. So he said I went ahead and kill them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam became very angry. And he kept saying to him, hello.
Did you rip his chest open? To check what his intentions were? Did you rip his chest open to check what his motives were and Osama bin Zayed for those of you who don't know, he was like a grandson of the Prophet set along the center. Because our Sam ovens, AIDS fathers they had been highly thought was a foster child with a problem that a lot of them he's someone who grew up in the lap of the property, someone who grew up under the supervision of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Now let's come to the Hadeeth right here, we'll move on to patinas.
So the first thing first, was this Hadeeth revealed in contexts or was it this revealed? Just was not revealed? Was it stated in context revealed is also okay to because we know that the Hadith of the Prophet are also a form of Revelation. I'm going to come to that in a moment when I come to the word humility. But is this hadith right here, out of context, or is it in context? So there's a beautiful book called Albion watari vs. Babel vs. Bobby rudall ahaadeeth sharifah. That
the book that covers the context or the backdrop to a hobby so if you're ever looking at wondering whether
There was a story that pre that that occurred before ahaadeeth was set by the Office of awesome, this is a beautiful place to go to. It's from a famous Hanafi scholar
Ibrahim and Mohammed Al Husseini and hanafy at the machine.
So he says, the backdrop to this hadith is narrated by even Abby shavon is Muslim from mobile Hideto Viola one. He says that Amato, viola Juan said that the Prophet said a long line he was sent in one day gathered us together, and he said to us tomorrow, I will give you a flag, and whoever carries this flag will be victorious in the battlefield. And a little bit more backdrop for those of you who don't know what's going on here, the Muslims are in the Battle of Playboy. And they're fighting and fighting and they can conquer the forts. Because the opposition retreats into the force, the Muslims can't go into them, and they're fighting and trying to get into the forts. So the Prophet said a
long holiday was set him says, tomorrow, I will give the flag to someone who will carry it and who will who will bring victory to us. So ever, and he in the process that I want to send him actually said, Roger, when you hit Billa, hawara sudo, that man actually loves a lot of that assumes that a lot while he was hidden. So when they heard this, every companion wanted to get that flag because they knew that whoever the Prophet gave the flag to that person, it was sure it was definite that that person was loved along the street in London would also love that person.
So a lot of the a lot one says, I never desired to be a leader. I never desired leadership my entire life, except for this day in law meeting. This was the only day in my life I desired leadership. He said, I sat there with my chest lifted up, is there his words? He said, I sat there with my chest lifted. I'm thinking that when the Prophet would look for people, he would see my chest being the highest and he would, he would, I would catch his eye and he would say my name. So he said, I kept my chest high. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said Ali,
Ali, come here.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave him the flag. So he said, fatale rasulillah Allah partido. What will I fight them for? Like what's what do I need to do? Why am I fighting against them? Like what's my goal? What do I need to achieve from this battle? So the Prophet said, we'll move to a new continent NASA tabula Illa Allah that I have in order to fight against people, until they say la ilaha illa. Now I know this hadith still causes confusion with all the backdrop for you, because I keep saying people and I'm literally translating the word I'm nuts. I'm going to come to that in a moment.
Now before I go into the Hadith and start breaking down the words of it, there's one more thing I want to say about this. Have you all know the Allahu unquoted a version of this hadith.
During the philosophy of America so differently a lot one,
when the Prophet said a lot while he was sent and passed away, there were some people who made it very clear that they had no intention of giving Zakat to Abu Bakr Siddiq. Love your loved one. We're not going to give you any secrets we used to only give Zakat to the Prophet we're not getting we're not giving it to any successor of his workers to do the last one. He said, what kind of successor would I be if you won't respect me? And give me the dues that you used to give to the progress of a lot one incident. He then said I will wage war against him. Although the last one came to America and said you shouldn't wage war against them. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
I've only been commanded to fight against people until they say la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah and these people say la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, that's it, so we don't fight against them. Now note, Omar, the loved one did not have knowledge of the remaining part of the Hadith, that his son our beloved Ahmed is now narrating. And I want us to do the last one, according to one narration was aware of the remaining part of the Hadith. And he said
that the Prophet said a lot while he was sitting didn't only say la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, what else did he say in that Hadith? Well, your theme was Salah, musica that they establish their Salah, and they give them a cup. And if someone's going to say I praise Allah, but rejects the legitimacy of zakat. That's a problem. If someone says I don't want to give it to God because I'm lazy, that's between you and Allah. But if someone creates a policy out of it, that I do not think that God needs to be given any more. Now that's a problem. And I've looked at it a lot one says, anyone that tampers with our religion, I will keep a heavy hand on them. The Hadith starts off with
the word omega two, omega two, omega two means I have been commanded. Now where does this command come? Where does it Where are these? Where's Allah subhanahu wa tada commanding the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with these exact same words. You won't find it in the Quran. So therefore we learn that there is a second part of the Quran which is a recipe was the revelation we read in the Salah is obviously there, but the prophets that along while he was some statements, his actions are also a form of Revelation. He was divinely inspired by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Therefore Allah subhana wa tada when he inspires the Prophet that now this is what you need to do.
The prophets of Allah Allah
With some refers to that in the in the, in a passive tone omitted to and he says, I have been commanded by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Why is he now omitted to an open heartedness I have been commanded to fight with the people.
Before we talk about people, I want to first talk about the word
it means a two sided fight. It's not a one sided fight. It's not we're going to play your viewpoint just looking at people. Violence, when you come to the battlefield and someone is standing in front of you. It comes from the Arabic scale mufa Allah. masala means when two people do the same verb. So fonasa does not mean one person helping it means two people helping one another. So while solo bill Hakim de la Sol means two people advising one another, each of you advise one another. So PETA also comes from that same with Allah, which means two people.
They they advise one another when the file, they advise one another, or they fight with one another. So it's a two sided thing. Now a word that is synonymously used with beta by some is the word jihad. And it's important to know that where the two may come in a similar context linguistically, the origins are very different. fitout comes from the Arabic word Fatah and Latin means to kill so Qatar means to a kill two people killing each other trying to kill each other. Jihad does not mean kill. What does Jihad come from? It comes from the word jihad, and what is good mean? to strive to struggle? So I can say my jihad is to lose 10 pounds. And that statement would be absolutely
correct. There's nothing wrong with at all it's my struggle in life. My jihad is for me to not waste so much money and go for Hajj. My jihad is to preserve my marriage. My jihad is to grow to raise healthy, strong, pious, righteous kids. These are all sound statements. And it's important that if someone hijacks a word, we claim it back, the word Jihad has been hijacked. And people they quote, verses in a Hadith of the prophets that allamani was sent them and they force their, their their definition of jihad onto the word even though it's very possible. What the Prophet sent along with it was cinema speaking about is something very different. Now, we come to the next part of the
Hadith, which is that I feel that this part of the Hadees this discussion is like the focal and turning discussion, the whole Hadith, the Prophet says, I have been commanded to fight against the people.
Now, who are these people who the Prophet has been told to fight against? Now someone can say,
means all people linguistically, because it's not not soon, not soon without Alif Lam at the beginning, means some people unasked with le flam at the beginning of the word means all of the people, that's what it could mean. So therefore, this Hadeeth means every person you see who's not a Muslim, you're supposed to
poke them with a knife. That's what you're supposed to do.
where a person can make that argument linguistically. Theoretically, it doesn't stand. First of all, there are examples in the Quran where Allah uses the word unece. And isn't referring to all of mankind rather is referring to a group of people. And the most clear example is at the beginning of surah, Al Baqarah, Allah subhana wa tada says,
without thedata, Amina, comma,
m and n us, and when they are told, referring to the hypocrites when the hypocrites are told, believe, just as enough, the people have believed. So the hypocrites are being told to make their belief like the people that I know cinema drama, if you open up anything, see under anass, you'll find Jani a sahabah. The anass here is referring to the companions, meaning make your belief like the belief of the companions, if we took that first linguistic approach to interpreting our religion, and we said, Enough means all of mankind, men and what this I should have been meant is that have the belief that anyone in mankind has and you're good to go, which means you can do it.
You can be a Buddhist, you can be anything you want to become inasmuch as anyone and if you believe like any other person who believes in the world, you're good to go. And not only this, there are many examples in the Koran where the word enough, even though linguistically, it would generally mean all of mankind. It comes with a specific context, because the people you're talking to are a very specific group of people.
So who is it talking to now?
Even a hospitalist Kalani. He says there are six to seven possibilities of who the word whom the group of people enough is referring to the two most important and the most common interpretations. The first one that people have Arabia and the second one the most, the key
mocha mocha. So it's very, very specific now that people are mocha mocha aroma, the mushy tequila, mocha, mocha aroma and the people of Arabia. Now the counter question can come, okay, let's just run with this and say enough does refer to the machete kina maka or the people of Arabia? Why is the Prophet tool to fight against them? Why is the Prophet being told to fight against these people? Well, the reason is because
why isn't the Quran saying, okay? Why is that? Why is a law telling the Prophet fight against them? Why isn't Why isn't a law telling them the prophet to strike an agreement with them? You know, sit down and have diplomatic discussions figure something out? Why is that what I'm saying fight against them. So the answer to that is because diplomatic sittings and agreements were already exercised. Forgiveness was already exercised with these people. The Muslims forgave them for their aggression for 13 years. But these people were persistent on their oppression. The Muslims made agreements with the people of Arabia, the famous one was the sort of Libya but the people of mcomber karma violated
that too. And other than that, the not only them, but there are many, and someone can say, but why, okay, that's the people of Mecca. Why all of Arabia? Well, the reason is, because in the Battle of London, it wasn't only the Battle of sunblock was a third major battle that took place, a third major attack against the Muslims. It was in the fifth year after migration. In the Battle of London, it wasn't only the people of rage that came against the profit that a lot of money was spent on. Rather, members from all tribes of Arabia came against the purpose of the long line, he was members of all tribes. That's why that battle is commonly known as
El Allaha. The group's the Confederates, there's a whole suit on the Quran called
all of the groups everyone gathered against the Muslims. So now what is Allah subhanaw taala, telling the Prophet that you've tried to work with these people, and if you keep forgetting them, keep forgiving them and keep allowing them to break their agreement. Because it's in your nature to forgive people. When the when the, when they're
captive from the Battle of mother were brought in front of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he didn't want to kill them. Even though that proposal was put in front of him. What did the Prophet do? He forgave them. He overlooked he said, set them free, tell them to pay a ransom their family members can give a minimal amount ransom and set them free. And if no one has any money for ransom, they can teach how to read and write to some kids in Madina munawwara teach each of them to teach 10 kids in Medina, and they're set free meeting a very minimal ransom, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had no desire of shedding blood, but also how to what that is not telling the
Prophet that you need to do this because unless you don't do this, these people will constantly come at you, they'll constantly come at you. So you have to fight against them, put them in the corner and get these people to understand that now all the other options that were on the table are no longer on the table because they betrayed all those options already in the past.
There are so an extra people, some people that deduce from this that Muslims force their way into countries and force their ways force their force the inhabitants of the countries to accept Islam This is a common thing. First of all, we know that's not true. How we know it's not true is because of the Quran itself, saying that men shall human woman shall
failure for whoever wishes to believe should believe, and whoever wishes otherwise can do it, do what they desire. But Quran tells us law ikura 15, there is no compulsion on the religion in the religion. Well now Allah Rasulullah Bara, the messengers, responsibility is just to convey to the people not butcher them one by one, that's not a part of our dean. The progress that allowed he was saying this told him to put on in the kehlata team and you can't force someone into the dean, because he really wanted his uncle Obama to accept Islam. So am I saying in the culatta
Allah subhanaw taala sound the Prophet? Well, masala Colleen feels like you're not a guardian over them that you have to force them into doing what you want them to do. People will make their decisions. It's your responsibility to convey it to them, that people make this claim. You'll hear people making this claim.
But Muslims are Class A invaders, they invaded the world. They invaded the Roman Empire, they invaded the Persian Empire. They were occupiers in Spain, you know, they invaded sin.
So Muslims have policies, there are some policies in Islam. When it comes to warfare and battle, where people may make it sound like the Muslims were on this rampage of just adding more land to their, to their empire. It's not technically true. And I say this most definitely for the prophets that a lot of people set them in the periods of the Companions for the period of the companions, after the companions, human beings made mistakes, and because they were Muslims, that doesn't make what they did Islamic. If a human being does something that's against Islam, we have no problem in saying what they did is an Islamic I have no problem with that at all. However, my responsibility as
a Muslim is to understand what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did and what the companions Did you know,
Someone can say, Why did I want to be a long one? Why didn't I do the long one larger campaign against the Romans? Well, it's because the strife between the Muslims and the Romans didn't start very long blockers I think are the long ones time, read a little history. Go read a little seed. And you'll know that during the Prophet's life, the Romans and the Muslims are already fighting the Battle of Malta, supposed to be battle if the boop which never occurred, the Romans were no show in that battle. That was the last expedition of the life of the province of the law audience and last major expedition of blood for the purpose of the law, it was from the Persians as for them, the
reason why the Muslims returned to those lands is because the land that bordered between Persia and Arabia, once nudged accepted Islam. Once Bahrain accepted Islam, people on the borderlines started accepting and the Persians started persecuting them and killing them. So then the last one sends armies to go and protect those Muslims, which then has a snowball effect, you fight against the enemy, they're not going to go quiet, they're going to come back, you're going to come back, they're going to come back, you're going to come and as you keep going in front of one another, one's land is going to decrease naturally, and the other person's borders are going to expand naturally. Right?
If you if you if you withdraw and retract, that oppression is going to come back right where it started. And that's where it keeps going. Same situation in Spain. In Spain, there was a state of oppression there, and people there who were inhabitants there who are not Muslim, they were being oppressed. There are two historical traditions on this. Amongst the Muslim scholars, some say that the Spaniards invited the Muslims, they said we would like for you to come to our lands and liberate us from the oppressors, because they saw the piece in North Africa and the oppression on the other side, you know, right on the other side of the Gulf, if you wish to say it right there. There's,
there's there's oppression happening. So they invited the Muslims. And that's where the most, even if they didn't invite the Muslims, the Muslims saw oppression, and it became their responsibility to remove that oppression. And that's why when thought of when Ziad after he dealt with the immediate threat, that immediate oppression, he continued conquering the halifa of the time, actually punished him for doing that. He said to him, you weren't supposed to fight on beyond what you had permission to do. Beyond the part that was oppressed. You weren't supposed to go beyond that. And not only that, there are traditions you'll find an Islamic history that thought of Nzr, the one who was so
who was the key figure in conquering under this, he was because he kept going and he kept conquering beyond what was necessary. He was imprisoned for this. He was actually imprisoned. And according to some traditions, he stayed in prison until the last days of his life. As for the conquering of sin that people make reference to the conquest of sin was the result of Raja Dahir, who was the who was the ruler and King there at the time taking capturing a Muslim vessel. There were businessmen on there, they were portrayed, and he captured it all. So the honeypot at the time was informed. He's an army and he first wrote letters, and then it was very clear that he wasn't going to submit the
return to ship and that's when they send their armies. So I made it very clear at the beginning of everyone, if anyone's gonna say that Muslims are not about war and Muslims, if you're going to try to draw draw a picture of Islamic history where there was no fighting or warfare at all, it's going to be a distorted Islam. That's not what we claim. We're not claiming that. But what we're claiming is that there is a cause there is a reason behind these battles. And sometimes the Muslims took the offense. Like in Spain, they took the offense, they saw oppression, before it came to them, they took the offense, and sometimes it was a defense where they stood back, and someone attacked them,
and they came back to claim one of the two didn't exist is also very problematic.
Now, one was you had made fun of even above, he says, when the province that Allahu Allah was sent in was sent as a prophet. First thing first, the heat was made obligatory upon people to believe in the oneness of Allah, and then conveying Islam to the people. And then the Quran came down and as the Quran came down, people were commanded to read the Quran from affordable solar to be Makita and then Salah was made fun of on people in mocha mocha Rama, were fully the Somu by the Senate in a minute. And he says, the fasting of the month of Ramadan became obligated upon the Muslims two years after his little what had to be sent out the Saudis will homies with dassia and then Hydra became
part of the one people either in the on the Muslims either in the 50 or 60 year or in the ninth year, different opinions. And he says,
Well, I'm gonna show you how to fill a mute Vela who be Makita as for jihad, it was not allowed upon Muslims in Mecca mercadona was in Allah who bill Medina and then it was allowed for Muslims in Medina Managua and the reason why I'm I'm no we're not gonna lie it is bringing this hadith here is to establish that Teton battle and warfare is a part of Islam. And anyone that claims that it was abrogated is not that that person is false in this claim, because it will remain till the Day of Judgment. However, in order for there to be jihad in order for there to be a thought in order in order for there to be a war between two sides or a struggle. It has to be legitimate. This is where
the this is where another we're having another really important discussion. It needs to be a legitimate back.
Now how do you legitimate
battle, how do you know whether a battle is legitimate or not? First and foremost, it must be sanctioned by the halifa at the time.
It must be sanctioned by the leader of the Muslims at the time. And he must have cause or reasoning for it. Somebody listed above, you know, getting rid of corruption from people, protecting borders, helping the oppressed, and so on so forth, we listed some of them above. So it's, well, I'm gonna Jihad the makueni. Like, imagine, imagine he wished he had he, the Imam, the leader of the people will be the one who will make the call that this is necessary, or this is not necessary, and not every battle needs to be religious, the man may say that the battle that we're gonna have is a political, it's a political battle, there's a political difference between the two borders. And
before 1945, before the UN was established, this is a common thing people want not that I'm saying this is what Muslims did, I'm just making I'm just making the point, I'm just stating history. Before 1945, before the UN was established, you know, it was a common thing that people empires would flex their muscles and show how strong they were by continuously occupying and conquering, occupying and conquering Muslims didn't do it for the sake of fun this to extend, you know, flex their muscles and see how far their empire can go. When they did it, there was a reason and cause behind it. And as I mentioned, there are some that we discussed, and some that you can go back and
read, it's a detailed discussion of jihad, you can go and read it in the books. Now the progress that allamani was set them says, We will wage war against them until they testify in the oneness of Allah, and the Prophet of the Prophet that allamani was set up. So we know that the people who are talking about here we know the action we're talking about here now until they believe in until they give the Shahada so believing in Allah isn't enough, believing in the prophets that allamani was set up as equally important. And the prophets of Allah It was also says, and they pray their salaat and give there's a QA. So from this first thing, we learn
there is a verbal element to your faith, Shahada. And then there's a physical element to your faith is a cotton song. They're both really important that within the physical element, the prophet said, up Masada aka, the physical and the financial, they establish their prayer, physically, and they also engage in their zakaat. Financially, someone can say why isn't so mentioned here? Why isn't HUD mentioned here? Well, the scholars they say, first, my mentioning to the other two are also inclusive. They're also included into the statement, despite him mentioning to elaborate How can Islam The purpose of the law, while he was said them says the only once a person does this, then
they are given security, then you can't attack them, you don't harm them. We're not just going to kill people for fun. You don't just harm people for fun. If someone if they if there's an agreement between them. You know, this whole thing I have to say one more thing, actually, going back to that original Fox News propaganda that Muslims are supposed to kill everyone, if that's exactly what the Koran set of that exactly, that's exactly what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said
there's only one or two scenarios that could have ended it. Now that Islam would have ended in either all Muslims would be our die, or every non Muslim would be dead.
You guys understand that? At least in Muslim lands, at least in Muslim lands. And Coptic Christians have been in the Middle East for how long
generations, generations, you know, even after Muslims came there, they you know, who lived in Medina Manoa, even after the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam was there, you know, and even after the Prophet passed away in the outskirts of Medina, that yahood, were still there. So this, this blanket statement that Muslims are out there to kill everyone. Again, I'm just reinforcing that, again, it's not true, to be healthy. Unless someone violates the right of Islam, if someone violates a ruling of Islam, then they will be punished for it. And that punishment may mean a partial punishment where they may get some lashes or they may be in prison for a period or they can also be
it can also be a life or life situation. Okay, let me help you. And what does that actually mean? What what are the scenarios that a person's life can be taken if they commit a crime, there's 100 coming for that up ahead in this very simple, we'll talk about that. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, what he saw boom, Allah, we, our responsibility is to see what they're saying. What they're thinking in their heart, we can't hold them accountable for that. We leave that to Allah subhanho wa Taala
and nakoma below 100 had never tried to judge what a person's thoughts are. Never try to judge what a person's heart is saying. Your responsibility is to see what they're actually saying. Someone says to you can I help you don't think they're being egoistic or angry about it. Someone says to you, hey,
you want $5 went to go buy yourself some pizza. Don't think that person's looking down upon you. Don't don't read into people. Your responsibility is personal bundle in the bottom of it, because some bad thoughts can be it can be evil for you can harm you. So the purpose of a lot of while he was sitting has done that here that don't judge what their thoughts are. Don't judge people. What they're thinking that oh, maybe that person's saying this
To run away from the sword, your job is to think good of them and have positive reinforcement. I'm going to close off today's class by reading some verses of the Quran that relate to pathol and jihad, which show us the true context of what jihad, what Kitab is what war is in Islam.
The first set of verses I wanted to read to you
are from Surah Al Baqarah, verse number 191 91, and 192.
Well, God to whom feasibility or particle feasibility la isla de partie Luna como la Tato in the La La COVID-19 fight in the way of a law those who fight you, but do not transgress. Indeed, Allah does not like the transgressors, what to do whom hated the moon, walk around your home in Haifa and kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from where they have expelled you. They expelled you first they take your land, they took your lands, so it's now okay for you to expel them from the lands that they took away from you in the first place. Okay. While fitna to eyeshadow mineral pattern and fitna which can be translated as trial

They thought the loop and the room and if they fight you then you fight them karateka Rizal caffeine, such is the recumbents of the ones who reject finding the hope and the love for him. And if they see he's mean if they stop their aggression, then know Allah subhanaw taala is all forgiving Allah subhana wa tada is All Merciful. And then another beautiful verse, Allah subhanaw taala says, When Jenna who does sell me for Jenna what are called Allah in the in the who was sent me an atom 861 and if they inclined to peace, then inclined to
peace also. If they come, if they come with peace to you, then in general the sun further Allah, then lower yourself for peace to what are called Allah and rely on Allah in the homeless. Amina Lima lies all hearing a lot smarter as all knowing.
And then the last sort of MONTH Okay, now verse number eight and verse number nine, nine how comala whiny Levine LMU Cthulhu confit de Nicola mucilage ducommun dare come into Babu matsudo la him in the la 18 a lot is not forbidding you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes, from being righteous towards them and acting justly towards them. Indeed, Allah loves those who are just, there's nothing wrong with having friends with people who aren't your foes. Someone who's not fighting against you. You have no deal fighting with them in the mind. How come a long winded Latina Cotonou confit Deen, Allah subhanaw taala commands you Allah, Allah
mother prevents you, from those who are fighting with you because of your religion, and I've taken you out of your homes, and they have they and they have aided in your explosion
that you make allies with them. Never make allies with with them woman at the well at home. But when it comes to women, and whoever does make allies with them, that person's from the wrong doors. One last last thought I want you to walk away with I didn't bring this as the fundamental first argument. But I'm bringing this as my last closing argument, closing thought because I I read this earlier today.
I was speaking with Sheldon Nasr and we were talking about this Hadeeth. And I said to him Schiff, what's a good explanation of this idea? And he gave that explanation to me. And then I wanted to read it somewhere. And then before I came to class, I actually found it written as well. That's why I thought I would close with this. this. I don't think you need to make this a foundational argument. But it's just an argument to remember. What's that? The heavy speaks in first person omitted to it doesn't say omit or not, or omit. It doesn't say you were commanded. Or we were commanded. What does the Hadid say omitted to I was commanded. And then it continues on by saying
immune to an illness. Until that I fight against the net neutrality, redness, or to cause illness, it occurred in a nurse that I fight against them. Hata de la li la and then find that follow Danica as a mini demo. And when they do the above, meaning praise, Shahada, and they establish the period they give this aka, their their, their their blood and their families have been protected from me in love. Islam, Allah, so this constant first person, it's very possible that this token is still vt, meaning it's limited to a time unlimited to the Prophet sallallahu. It was set up that's also a possibility. And if someone says okay, let's say it is limited to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam and not to other people.
Then why did him know we even bring it in the book then?
Just Hades is limited to the purpose of the law. 87 Why did he not know we even bring this how do you think the book because this is a fundamentals book. He's bringing this how do you pick up this book? How do you think
Because he feels these are these are fundamental to your life? Well the answer to that would be, because even though we is teaching us not only the presence of PETA and Islam first thing, but also teaching us the importance of Salah sakata Hajj.
He's teaching us that, that Muslims were identified by Shahada. They were identified by their salon, they were identified by their setup. The reason why my mo wait until it brings us here is to teach us that all Muslims are protected by Allah subhana wa, Tada. Everyone who believes by default is protected by law. Every non believer is also given protection. When agreements are made agreements made mean there's there's there are natural agreements that exists a human to human agreement. I don't have to say it, I don't have to write it. It's an understanding with people that you will look after me, I will look after you. I will be nice to you. You will be nice to me. You know, there's a
highway code, how drivers drive and how you're not supposed to cut someone off where some of it may be embedded in law. But another part of highway code is what
if it's snowing, you know that you take it easy when you drive? I'll take it easy when I drive. And then you go to New York and you realize there's no code there at all. Everyone's generally everyone's crazy they just want to get there two seconds earlier. So say do we end we pray that Allah subhanahu wa tada gives Baraka in this gathering and Allah subhanho wa Taala it gives the true understanding of our Deen Allah azza wa jal makes us from those who are ambassadors of the truth to the world and beyond into the people of misunderstanding, or sort of llamada see them at the ceremony Kumamoto La Jolla.
