00:01:06--> 00:01:06

Do I just

00:01:10--> 00:01:11

wait for a signal

00:01:20--> 00:01:22

All right, I'll just start. Okay, so

00:01:24--> 00:01:28

this Miller had a handle on him and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was salam o

00:01:32--> 00:01:33

Have you ever Sofia

00:01:37--> 00:01:38

from say hello Buhari

00:01:40--> 00:01:43

Leon in the Mala. And it is

00:01:45--> 00:02:30

narrated by Abu sufian. And he tells of when he was in a sham. And heraclius asked him certain questions about the profits or loss. And now, the reason I wanted to do this hadith for a number of reasons. First of all there, Heraclitus was the emperor of the Byzantine Empire, which is the Eastern Roman Empire. And he was a scholar, and a wise, very wise man also, as indicated mentioned, who is wise, very knowledgeable and a scholar, and a very opinionated man. And he was he sent that this was a time I was expecting a new prophet to surface. And so he's going to ask soufiane some very intelligent questions to determine if this is a genuine profit or not. So there are a lot of

00:02:30--> 00:03:05

benefits in the Hadith or a lot of wisdoms. It's, it's a really a brilliant, brilliant Hadith. So it's narrated by Abdullah nobis, who says, abou, soufiane harp, so obsidian, as you know, the leader, one of the leaders have the courage and at this point, he's like the soul or number one leader of the courage because Abu Jamal is dead, Abdullah is dead. So he's like, of the top. So, of course, Sophia rodilla, who became Muslim later on after the conquering of Mecca. And this is before that, so he's telling this story. He's narrating this story later on to Abdullah

00:03:07--> 00:03:50

Abdullah nobis. So he says, I was to find her, informed me that heraclius had sent a messenger to him while he had been in the in a complaining of sorry, accompanying a caravan of the crash. So I'm Sofia, now, this is in the 60, after the year or after the 60 after the hijra, there's a treat of davia. So there's peace between him and the Muslims. And he goes on a journey to a sham for trade. While he was there with this caravan of the Qureshi in a sham heraclius their leader now sent for them and he doesn't know this. I was iffy on the leader of the court, he doesn't know but the they just need some Arabs and we're gonna see why. The question about the prophet SAW Selim.

00:03:51--> 00:04:37

He says there were merchants doing business in a sham at that time when the Prophet seldom had the truth truce with Abu sufian and the crush of the Orinoco follow the chorus, so I was a fan and his companions, they went to Huracan at aelia, which is Jerusalem, India is Jerusalem, and he Regulus called them in the into his court and he had the senior Roman dignitaries arrive who translating heraclius heraclius question said to them, who amongst you is closely related to that man who claims to be a prophet a you come across a bonus on behalf of the Rajan LLC yes or no and who maybe so he says, which of you is closest in relative in Kinsey ship or in relationship to that man who says

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

that he's a prophet. So, okay, it's already from the wisdom of Hara, that they bring him these Arabs who just happened to be from Mecca. He doesn't know who's who here. But he is asking them which of you is closest to him as a relative, so that you're going to come forward and I'm going to ask you questions about anyone tell us why that's so intelligent that

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

Have the closest relative answer the questions

00:05:04--> 00:05:20

as closely because it's unlikely he's going to lie against him. So someone from his family will be less likely to lie against him. And of the people that were there. soufiane was the closest in relationship to the process is still the distant but close enough. So

00:05:21--> 00:05:27

Abu Sufyan said Anna acaba, homeless Ivan, I'm the closest of them in kinship. So

00:05:29--> 00:05:48

Roxanne said, Would no human need to bring him close to me? Well, caribou has harboe. So and bring his companions also closer to him for Jolo, home and davara, put them behind his back. So bring apostrophe and close, keep his his companions behind him. And then he said to the translator,

00:05:49--> 00:06:14

to tell my companions, it was a funny thing. Heroku tells me the translator, tell my companions that he wanted to put some questions to me regarding that man, the meaning the prophet SAW Salah, and that if I told the lie that my companion should contradict me, I was young wants to know if this man is going to be telling the truth. So his companions are behind him. And if he tells a lie, they'll just signal to him like this thing. He's not speaking the truth

00:06:15--> 00:06:32

Huracan doesn't know that the man who happened to step forward was also their leader. Right? And what are the chances they're gonna turn them in if he lies and what are the chances are one of the followers of Fianna this leader now is going to indicate to him

00:06:35--> 00:06:36

that he's lying.

00:06:37--> 00:07:01

No chance right for law heat, lower and higher. min and yet you can even look at up to it. He said, Well, law he has not been ashamed that my companions will have labeled me a liar or counted a lie against me, I would have would have lied about him. I would have lied about Mohammed Sawsan. Now, a couple of things here.

00:07:02--> 00:07:04

One of the Hadees

00:07:05--> 00:07:13

are the famous Hadith. The Prophet Olam said hiral. Quran, corny, sumela, Xena, Luna home, de la Vina Luna home to Maya.

00:07:14--> 00:07:38

He said the best of generations is my generation than the ones coming after them than the ones coming after them, then the lies will spread. And from the lies some of the scholars said the lies here means the bidder the innovations in the religion now, so we're very familiar with this hadith. And that's how we know the best of generation with the companions than the Tibetan Indian tagliata been right? But a very interesting commentary on this Howdy. The scholar said,

00:07:40--> 00:07:47

just mean that the Muslims that that comes at the time of the porcelain are better today. Now.

00:07:51--> 00:07:55

It was horrible and all that now. So let's light to this issue here.

00:07:59--> 00:08:04

Islam in order to make the contest contest, greater, he will exaggerate in

00:08:10--> 00:08:15

there was prostitution. And they accepted it for the males, but women,

00:08:17--> 00:08:18

but a free woman, never mind

00:08:24--> 00:08:25

that you will not associate any

00:08:29--> 00:08:32

male with but a woman wouldn't.

00:08:39--> 00:08:39

There was in

00:08:41--> 00:08:43

for travelers who come into this

00:08:45--> 00:08:48

from being cheated and so on and so forth. So that

00:08:49--> 00:08:52

bad things mixed with some good quality

00:08:53--> 00:09:03

public services and sends it to people who are liable for the then within, alter and change their religion. But they

00:09:04--> 00:09:13

said I was a leader and I was too ashamed that they would count a lie against me, even though if he lied, if he answered every question dishonestly.

00:09:15--> 00:09:16

But look how truthful he was that he

00:09:18--> 00:09:20

was ashamed of lying about all

00:09:24--> 00:09:25

of this.

00:09:27--> 00:09:34

And when the people thought the college panicked when they discovered the problem was gone, so

00:09:35--> 00:09:36

he asked her Where's your father?

00:09:37--> 00:09:39

I don't know. So he slept.

00:09:42--> 00:09:44

He has a vagina thrown

00:09:48--> 00:09:49

in with him, he said he

00:09:52--> 00:09:53

hadn't and neither up to

00:09:57--> 00:09:58

a woman. This

00:10:04--> 00:10:06

We're also praiseworthy and we're not going to

00:10:07--> 00:10:09

worst worst way. There were a lot of things that were happening

00:10:11--> 00:10:30

here, Abu sufian refuse to lie, and this is his enemy. And this and he's the sole leader of the corporation. And he would love to get an award in with with Huracan and say something negative of what the processor refused to lie, and they weren't going to turn him in and hit off who doesn't know that he just asked the leader to advance make sense.

00:10:31--> 00:10:50

So the first question he asked me was k phonexa houfy comm How is his family status amongst you his lineage? So I answered who Athena luminesce he belongs to a good and noble family amongst us his good lineage. Then heraclea asked for one for Haleakala Hagel, Cole, I mean, come

00:10:52--> 00:11:26

on cobla who? He said, has anyone amongst you ever claimed the same thing beforehand, meaning? Has anyone in the chorus ever said I'm a prophet? And he's asking very wise questions or very strategic questions. Kaltura I replied, No, no one's ever pretended to be a prophet before him or claimed to be a prophet before. Then he said, For hell can I mean Abba? He mean, Malik. Has was anyone from his ancestors at King? Will Tula, I said, No. Then he asked, do the nobles, or the poor follow him?

00:11:28--> 00:11:31

sraffa nazjatar, the owner who, I'm Dr. Arthur

00:11:33--> 00:12:22

Shroff in us do the nobles amongst the people follow Him, or the week didn't necessarily say the poor here, but the week, and then I replied, to offer, rather it is the poor who follow him. Now, here, we're gonna do some, like some fun facts here. We imagine that the majority of the early Muslims were from the poor, the destitute, the freed slaves, and those who are weak, and so on and so forth. But that is actually not true. So, one, why do we think that, and to what is the reality? The reality is really, really simple. If you sit down and do research and gather the names of the earliest Muslim? When you gather the names of the earliest 67 Muslims, you will find that only 13 of

00:12:22--> 00:12:36

them were from the poor, the destitute and the freed slaves? 13 out of 67? Yeah. But why do we, in our minds, imagine that the majority of them were from the poor, and so on and so forth? Well, a number of things. Number one,

00:12:37--> 00:13:16

those people who had powerful tribes, they were not beaten and tortured in the street, and anyone could come and kick them and so on and so forth. But their tribe kept their punishment in house kept it, not industry, but in house. So if a nobleman from a powerful tribe becomes Muslim, do you think they're going to drag him in the street and have any child in Medina come and kick him and throw rocks at him? Or do you think they'll keep it within their Kabbalah their tribe, mostly, probably within their tribe, right? Here's some actual examples. It's not It's not fun. When he became Muslim, his uncle noticed not anyone in the street, but someone from his from Romania from his

00:13:16--> 00:13:28

tribe, his uncle used to wrap him in a straw mat and light it on fire, massage, man, when he became Muslim, his mother, his own mother, we tie him up in the house, and she would starve him. So he kept it in house.

00:13:29--> 00:13:31

And will eternal will eat who is a

00:13:32--> 00:14:15

Muslim now, and he's telling the story of how he's from Burma, how men from Panama zoom, came to ask his brother, actually, he shall have no valid permission, what to do with our people who become Muslim. I want you to notice that when powerful people, people from noble tribes become Muslim, they didn't have anyone in the street, dragged them and beat them. They kept it within the tribe. So unbelievable what it is Muslim, and he's saying, men from bending Muslim, they want to torture me and beat me and beat other Muslims. So but they have to go through the proper channels and get all the necessary paperwork and permission. So they went to a sham of Mali, and they're making it look

00:14:15--> 00:14:36

as if they're consulting him, what do we do with our people from Bernie Muslim who leave a religion and enter Islam? So show me what it says beat them, to beat them, torture them, but don't kill anybody. Make sure you don't kill anyone. So it's proof of them going through the necessary paperwork. Also, in another narration of the London massada dylanglen. He mentioned

00:14:37--> 00:14:40

the first to become Muslim. He mentioned the process in London

00:14:41--> 00:14:59

to make the Islam public, he mentioned the process abubaker and then he mentioned Bella, and salmonella piracy and others that didn't have like tribes to protect them and so on. He says, and he asked her and his mother and so on. He says, As for the prophet SAW Selim, Allah protected him through his uncle.

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

As for abubaker, Allah protected him with his people by new team. And then he says, As for the rest of them, now we're seeing people without tribes to protect them. And so on the court, he took them the machine took them and they made them wear iron armor and bake them in the sun, hot sun of Arabia, and they're wearing iron against their body and they put them out in the sun. Bill arugula, and there's not a child, except they know of the torture of Bella rodilla on us later on, he becomes a Muslim, obviously, I'm not gonna ask, Well, he was non Muslim. He said I walked by Bella as he was being tortured, and how severe was the torture without the law and at one time, they didn't let me

00:15:41--> 00:16:02

drink water for a day and a half. And you know, three days or three days of no water, you die from dehydration, death, a day and a half no water. And after all that, they took him out in the hot sun. He loads down on the sand. They put a rope around his neck, they drag him up the mountains, the valleys of Mecca. And all the while he's saying I don't know.

00:16:04--> 00:16:41

I'm Ragnar says, I walked by as they were torturing Billa. If they would have put a piece of meat on top of his body, it would have fried on his hyperbolized. And he's trying to say how hot it was and how hot was how much heat and was upon below the law and that if they were to put a piece of raw meat on his body, it would have cooked. That's how horrendous it was. So look at the story of Bilal being punished hubbub of Noah's Ark, they would light some stones red hot, and then they would remove his clothing make him lie down on top of them, though witnesses said only the fat from his back would melt and put out the flame. So it's really, really severe. Why? Because they didn't have

00:16:41--> 00:17:17

a tribe to protect them. So the punishment was industry. It was profound. It was severe, everyone joined in, and many people saw it. And so the stories are more popular than someone beaten inside his home. Makes sense. So because we hear the popular stories in our mind, we imagine that all of them were from the poor, the destitute, and the freed slaves, and so on and so forth. But if you still don't like this argument, do the math. Count up the earliest 70 Muslims, and you'll find about 13 of them only were from the poor, the fates, the freed slaves. Were talking to the likes of

00:17:18--> 00:17:58

Baba who were talking about self manual fallacy again, not from an Arab origin. So Hi, buruma. So hey, roomie, even though he was he was actually Arab, but room means the Europeans. So they're referred to him as suhaib. The European but he wasn't European. He was an Arab of origin, but he was kidnapped and taken into slavery by the Europeans. And so they didn't know his actual tribe. And that's one of the reasons why Amaro Dylan was the halifa when he was stabbed, he chose to have a roomie to oversee the elections. Why? Because he's not going to have any bias towards any tribe. Make sense? Okay, so,

00:18:00--> 00:18:00

so

00:18:01--> 00:18:19

the poor, the weak amongst them. So what if someone says okay, but they weren't all from the weak. I mean, but here he's saying the weak. Well, even if there were nobles, they became counted as from the weak, for example, Muslims of North America No. And what was he famous for before Islam?

00:18:20--> 00:18:52

Anyone, and he was famous for being well dressed, having the most expensive oils in his hair smelling good. He was like the talk of the time, very fashionable. And after Islam, he became so poor, his clothing was so torn. One day he enters upon the companions, when they saw him, they will look down in tears from how he looked before and after. And what does he look so bad after it just because he said, Allah, my lord. So most out of nowhere, even though he had a powerful tribe and everything? Can we classify him as from amongst the weak now?

00:18:53--> 00:19:23

You can write? Alright, so that's why when he says, the majority of them were from amongst the week, yeah, because they were at that level. Now. It's not like Abu jehlen, Abu lahab. And those people became Muslims. It was people who now are when, for lack of a better term, as the lower rungs of society, even financial, boycott all the things they went through. Makes sense. But so that's why I was a fan replied Balu artha. But rather, it is the poor who follow him.

00:19:24--> 00:19:25

Then Heroku said,

00:19:27--> 00:19:56

as you do on Amazon cusum, do they increase or decrease in numbers? And day by day? Do the numbers of the Muslims increased or decreased? And just think about this the questions Why is he asking these particular questions to see if the problem was a genuine profit or not? So obviously, john said, I replied Valley as he doing, Robert, they're increasing. He then asked for earlier today, how do men home certainly Dini bother and yet he

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

he said, there's any

00:20:00--> 00:20:14

One amongst those who embrace his religion become displeased and then renounce the religion afterwards. And that's another very good question. And I replied, and we're gonna analyze them in a bit. But also now I said no.

00:20:16--> 00:20:32

And then hirako said, Have you ever accused him of telling lies before his claim to to be a prophet? Falcon to the moon? Oh, Bill, KDB, kubla and Nikola car. They used to accuse him of being a liar before he said that, and apostrophe and said, No Castilla.

00:20:33--> 00:20:49

Then he said, for him to do this, he broke his promises. Is he treacherous? Like that? And I will sofian says, no law. But remember, this was after the Treaty of Colombia after the sixth year of the hijra. So

00:20:51--> 00:21:11

once any opportunity to be able to see something bad without lying, so it says no one no man who fell in love and a dreamer who have no fear, he says, Mashallah, we're at a truce with him right now. And we don't know what he's gonna do. So is the only thing he could hint to say. He might, he might turn

00:21:12--> 00:21:39

treacherous and, and turn on us. So we don't know. And then he says, When I'm Tim Kinney kalama to odo Hello, fi Hi, Shay, and varathane kalama. He says, I was not capable to find anywhere to put something in there. slightly negative except this. Like, this is the only opportunity I got to say something slightly negative, but he couldn't be truthful. But he may do something we don't know what's gonna happen.

00:21:40--> 00:22:02

But still, you appreciate how truthful he's being and this is his worst enemy. And now you just look there's no truthfulness whatsoever. Anyone? Not not in any way. Not in advertising. Everything is just a lie. Everything is a television commercial, just lie after lie, fine print. It's just basically a way of lying to someone fine printing all kinds of things. So

00:22:03--> 00:22:45

then head offices for hell cartel tomorrow, have you ever been to war against him? And I replied, Well, to Nam, yes. Then he said, the key for Karnataka leukemia. How will what were the outcomes of the battles between the two of you? And he said, a terrible Bane and our baina who see john, the war between us and him with sigil sigil means sometimes he wins. Sometimes we when he's talking about but sometimes one time he won one time we want the alumina one anonyme? No, one time, we're victorious. He's victorious. One time we're victorious. Then hereafter said What does he order you to do? Mather morrocco. Come? What does he order you to do?

00:22:47--> 00:22:50

Okay, now, what's interesting here.

00:22:51--> 00:22:56

Now, a non Muslim is being asked about the message of Muhammad Sallallahu. Ellison.

00:22:57--> 00:23:02

And what would what is he going to say? Now, just so we can understand this?

00:23:03--> 00:23:22

An imaginary walk around the streets of Houston asking if anyone actually knows something about a snap? And then a number of people say, Yeah, I know something about them or I know about Islam. So the one who has read about Islam, if I asked him, given the microphone, what do you know about Islam? What do you think he will say? I mean, good stuff, and he read books about Islam. What do you think he would say?

00:23:24--> 00:24:05

The number one, don't you think he'll mention that? There's one God, Mohammed Salim is His Messenger, then you mentioned the five pillars of Islam. Right? Do you think there's an opportunity, there's a chance that we might be walking around the streets of Houston asking non Muslims, what do you know about Islam? And one of them will say Islam stresses good manners, and good dealings in other with people and you think that will be the case? I don't think so either. Because that's not what we present Islam as we don't, we don't even and many of us don't even know that good manners is such an essential part of Islam. And you'll find someone focusing on the Salah, and everything and

00:24:05--> 00:24:41

all that. And he's so rude and, or he'll lie or he'll just be abrasive when you deal with them and so on and so forth. Anyone who understands the importance of good manners in Islam understands that this you cannot ever be little good manners or just focus on the acts of worship, then if you have extra time, then work on your manners and smile at people if you have taught if you don't, it's okay. And it's like extra credit. That's not the case. And that's why you know, the hadith of and Muslims, the bankrupt individual, the person has to compete at a tournament and move list. Do you know who is the one who is bankrupt? So they're answered financially? Ursula and moodlets Vina mela,

00:24:41--> 00:25:00

Dereham, Allahu wa mata, this is oh prophet of Allah, or messenger of the Muslims. The one who is bankrupt amongst us is the one who has neither currency, Dirham, silver drums, nor possessions. Then the person who explained to them at the mufflers is the one who comes forth on the Day of Judgment with a lot of

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

deeds, mountains of good deeds. How did he get there? Use your imagination. So Allah swam sadhaka all kinds of acts of worship.

00:25:09--> 00:25:53

But he also came forth with Batman's. So what do bad manners do to your good deeds, your acts of worship, Baka da da da ba bajada Madhava and his insulted this person and hit that person and took the word of that person. So on the Day of Judgment, there's no injustice, he'll be called. And it will say this is so and so the son of so and so whoever has any rights come and take them right now. So someone will step up, he insulted me on this day, he'll take from another guy, he took my wealth, okay, took from his good deed. And then he's all his good deeds, his mountains are gone. But there's still a long line of people they start to take from he starts to take from their bad deeds. And then

00:25:53--> 00:26:29

the Hadith ends with he will be thrown into the fire on arugula, but thrown into the fire after what after he made it past the stupors of death, the soul living his body, the punishment of the grave, standing on the Day of Resurrection, being judged in front of Allah subhanaw taala, crossing the Surat, and now he's in front of the gates of paradise. And from here, he's just waiting for the gates to open. Here's where the settling of accounts between the believers happens in front of the gates of Paradise after crossing the Surat because you don't go into agenda. And then you see a guy, oh, that guy owes me money. And there's none of that stuff. And there's dirty looks like he's here.

00:26:30--> 00:26:42

He was very rude to me and agenda. So before we were going to agenda, all these things are settled between them. So he made it through all these stages, he's waiting for the gates to open. And then the president says he will be thrown into the hellfire.

00:26:43--> 00:27:05

And it is so powerful showing the importance of good manners and dealings in the snap. So many Muslims don't even know that, that it's that important to have good manners and to deal well with people, that you can even risk losing all your mountains of worship, just because of your bad manners to another human being to a fellow human being. So

00:27:07--> 00:27:50

what I'm saying is, we don't stress good manners amongst each other, let alone when we when we sell Islam or when we present Islam to people, we tell them it's all about stressing on others, and dealings and manners and smiling and being polite. And if someone insults you let it go and all that, let alone that. So that's why if, of course, I don't have any proof. But I'm quite certain. If we find a Muslim who knows something about Islam, he will be mentioned the five pillars of Islam, six pillars of human maybe, but he won't know the importance of that because we don't stress that to people. And that's not how we present Islam. Now, after all that long winded. Let's see how, by the

00:27:50--> 00:27:51

way, what time do you stop fresh?

00:27:52--> 00:27:53

And

00:27:56--> 00:28:29

how old was the fan respond to that question? What does he teach you? What's Islam all about? What's interesting is that he mentioned three issues of al Qaeda acts of worship, belief, and three issues of dealings. Which mean okay, let's look at it. Allah yaku josephian said he teaches Hamas or Salaam teachers, or Buddha la wha hoo wahoo wala to Sri cabeza worship Allah alone and do not associate anything in worship with him. One so he no ship. Okay, the issue?

00:28:32--> 00:29:14

What ruku Maya Colaba and leave what your forefathers say, of these religions and idols and all that, then we're gonna be Sala and he commands us to pray. So these three things, worship. And our key the belief related, then was the truthfulness, honesty, that's at the manners dealings will have so far is like, like chastity basically, which also entails dealing with people, and was thriller, thriller, silica or harmony, the ties of kinship. Again, it's an issue of add up here. So three issues of

00:29:15--> 00:29:38

worship and religion and Arpita three issues of urban dealings. And so this is a non Muslim asked to present a little bit about Islam, and he mentioned half and a half, which kind of gives you an idea that back then, when Islam was presented to them, they were told about the importance of the analog and the ties of kinship and so on and so forth. Which makes so much sense especially because

00:29:40--> 00:29:59

they, they're one of their accusations and one of their problems with Islam is that it's going against the religion of our forefathers. Right? And it's tearing up families. So it's a good response into them when Islam insists upon keeping the religion

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

friendships and the relationships with families. It's like it's almost like an answer to that to that point. Yeah, I like that point. I just got it. It's a great point.

00:30:09--> 00:30:14

Okay, you guys very serious to the very serious aright by So,

00:30:16--> 00:31:02

then he says for Karla little German Polo, so he tells the translator tell him so as Luca unnecessary now now heraclea is going to explain why I asked you these particular questions. So heraclea is telling the translator to translate double Sofia, tell him I asked you about his family. And your reply was that he belonged to a very noble family. In fact, all the profits came from noble families amongst their respective peoples. All right, so, that makes sense. And we said he was a scholar Harrington was a scholar. So he knew about sort of profits he knew about their lineages and and how it works. So and scholars, I mean, sorry, profits always come from a noble lineage from

00:31:02--> 00:31:39

noble families. And, and people would know that where they came from, that's what happened about three Rahim Allah has to say that Allah never ever sent a prophet who is a nomad or asleep, a nomad or asleep? Why Nomad? Because then this traveling man in the desert would just come upon the city and say, I'm a prophet of Allah, you have to follow me, okay? We don't know you, you just came out of the desert. We don't know your family, your lineage, we don't know your manners. You didn't grow up amongst us. We don't know that you are an honest person, truthful person, it will be hard to believe you. So Allah subhanaw taala always sends the prophets from amongst the people. That's one,

00:31:40--> 00:32:21

two, or a slave, why the slave, nothing wrong with them as a human being. But because the lineage of the slave gets messed up. Makes sense. Yeah, the lineage of the slave gets messed up. So you cannot preserve the lineage of a prophet that he came from the old Elisa, like that, from the other side, they were waiting for a profit from the seat of David, for example, or hear from miss my aid, if there's slavery messes it up. And that's why the lineage of profits is also preserved by a large GA. And never ever has there been a prophet whose wife for lack of a better term cheated on him. Because one, it would be an insult to the prophet to it would put into question the lineage of profits. Now,

00:32:21--> 00:33:04

on that note, there's something very interesting for those who are interested. If you look at, you know, the four gospels in the Bible, two of them have in the beginning, something known as the genealogy of Jesus. And the reason I put that there is that they're trying to, as their prophecy that are waiting for is that there was someone will be coming from the seat of David. So they're trying to establish in these two gospels that Jesus came from the seat of David, and they, there are two known rape cases in the Old Testament that are in the genealogy of Jesus. And Stan, and is that acceptable? To read cases in the genealogy of one prophet? Do you call that a preserved lineage?

00:33:05--> 00:33:08

Nobody wants to know, okay, but no,

00:33:10--> 00:33:17

no, it's not. It's a disaster Jani, we wouldn't accept that for a profit, and you're saying this is the Son of God, then there's rape in his lineage.

00:33:18--> 00:33:22

Anyways, there's some other problems with that. But, fellas, no one's interested, we just move on.

00:33:24--> 00:33:39

So now he's explaining why I asked these particular questions. And his question is really, really smart. And along these same lines, you could actually sit down with a non Muslim and, and show him this was a genuine profit. This was a genuine man here. Let's keep going here.

00:33:42--> 00:34:26

Yeah, so very good. That's why no, bro. But so then I questioned you the second question whether anyone else amongst you claim such a thing? Your reply was in the negative? Remember? Did anyone else claim to be a prophet before? If the answer had been in the affirmative, I would have thought that this man is just Rogen. yet. So Colin, de la kablo. I would think that this just is a man, following the example of something said by a man beforehand. And in Mecca, some guy said, he's a prophet, then he dies. And then another guy 10 years later said, I'm a prophet, too, then he does or something. And then someone else gets the same idea. He's just copying them. So but he said, no

00:34:26--> 00:34:30

one's ever done that in Mecca before. So that's another Plus, it's a good sign.

00:34:31--> 00:34:57

Then I asked you whether any of his ancestors was a king. Your reply was in the negative. And if and if it had been in the affirmative, he's telling him what I would have deduced, I would have thought that this man wanted to take back his ancestral kingdom. Makes sense. And if you would have said, Yeah, he did have a great great, great grandfather who was a king, but then they lost the kingdom. Okay, well, he's faking, pretending to be a prophet just so he can regain that kingdom again. Make sense?

00:34:59--> 00:34:59

Roger

00:35:00--> 00:35:13

Yakubu Mulcahy, a man requesting the kingdom of his father, I further asked whether he was ever accused of telling lies before he said what he said. And your reply was in the negative. So I wondered

00:35:16--> 00:35:31

if you know Lamia, Leah or al Qaeda balanus wekiva. Allah Allah, so strong and he's so intelligent. He says that I wondered how a person who does not tell a lie but other people would ever tell a lie about Allah.

00:35:32--> 00:36:12

Make sense? Someone truthful, doesn't lie in the market doesn't lie about the price of tomatoes or potatoes. And then we've never known him to lie. And then the day he finally lies, he's gonna lie against a lie xojo doesn't make any sense, he wouldn't very unlikely that that would happen. I then asked you whether the rich people followed him or the poor, you replied that it was the poor and here and the poor, or the weak, it could be the same meaning here, and we're explained why he called them the weak or the poor, because even if they were rich and noble, they became poor after a snap, and even those who didn't become extremely poor lost a lot of wealth. It was said that a worker of

00:36:12--> 00:36:33

the low on who had 40,000 Gold dinars at the time of his Islam 40,000 at the time of Nigeria they were 5000 what Look how much he lost his work not have not 50% a lot more that he lost. So people even those who still were not technically poor became a lot poorer. Make sense?

00:36:35--> 00:36:37

Look at Alec here.

00:36:39--> 00:36:39

Yeah.

00:36:41--> 00:36:41

He says,

00:36:42--> 00:37:05

Yeah, and in fact, all the people all the prophets had been followed by this same class of people and generally you find this to be the description as opposed to the leadership and you see the the prophets always in the dialogue in the Quran. In the stories of the Prophet it's always what the dialogue between them and and mela mela woman called me

00:37:06--> 00:37:23

constantly in Milan, are the people of top the movers and the shakers, the rich people, the nobles, the leaders, the top level people. So you always find the dispute to be between the profit and the top level people, which indicates they're the ones not accepting and lower levels would accept.

00:37:24--> 00:37:40

Then I asked you whether his followers were increasing or decreasing. You replied that they were increasing. And in fact, that is the way of the true faith until it is complete in all respects, radical Eman. He knew hello to Bashar loop.

00:37:41--> 00:38:18

Okay, that was a lot. Like I further asked you whether there was anybody who after embracing his religion became displeased and discarded his religion with anyone leave Islam after entering it, and your reply was in the negative. And in fact, this is the sign of true faith when its delight enters the heart and mixes with them completely, radically mankind in a Ohio loop. Then I asked you whether he has ever had ever betrayed. And you replied in the negative and likewise, the prophets never betrayed Okay, Charlie Caruso, la todo, they don't betray.

00:38:19--> 00:39:05

Then I asked you what he ordered you to do? You replied that he ordered you to worship Allah and Allah alone, and not to worship anything along with him, and forbade you to worship idols and ordered you to pray to speak the truth and to be chaste. If then. So now, here's the conclusion of all these questions and the way you answer them. If what you say or what you have said is true, he will very soon occupy this place underneath my feet, you understand? Very powerful. So based on my analysis, and if everything you said you were truthful, he will very soon rule this land right beneath my feet, where I am sitting right now this land will be under his control. He was sure about

00:39:05--> 00:39:08

it. Because now he says what?

00:39:09--> 00:39:37

And I knew it meaning from the scriptures that he was going to appear, but I didn't know that he would be from you. The Arabs. I didn't know he'd be familiar. And if I could reach him, then definitely I would go immediately to him. And if I were with him, I would certainly wash his feet under respect and you're higher than I am and so I would wash his feet then hirako then asked for the letter addressed by the prophets of Salaam

00:39:40--> 00:39:45

Yeah, so powerful, which was delivered by the here and can be the companion detail can be

00:39:47--> 00:39:59

the problem sent a letter with this companion the hill can be to the governor of Basra. Now when you read the Hadith, it just looks like it says buster, but it's b usra. And this is busara is a city

00:40:00--> 00:40:49

In Syria, and El Basra is a Syrian Arab. So they're completely different here. And we're saying this is the Eastern Roman Empire. So Syria was under, you know, under the Roman control and so on. So this is Busan, the process of them sent to the governor of Basra a letter with the hill can be and the governor of Missouri forwarded the letter to Huracan. To read, you want to hit up to his opinion on it also. Then it says the Hadith continues. The contents of the letter were as follows Bismillah R Rahman Rahim In the name of Allah and you know what that means. Min Mohammed bin Abdullah hora Sula, from Muhammad, the slave of Allah and His Messenger Illa Huracan are the more room to Huracan,

00:40:49--> 00:40:56

the ruler of the Byzantine or a room and it's really the Byzantine here or the Romans.

00:40:59--> 00:41:38

Then it says set on either Manitoba and Hoda, peace be upon those who follow the right path or true guidance, am about to proceed for any a DeLuca be the ayah till Islam. He says I invite you to Islam as slim Tesla become Muslim and you will be safe. But the letter is really brief. Okay, a slim custom so I'm inviting you to the religion of Islam become Muslim, and you will be safe. You take a look at Euro cat Mara attain, Allah will give you your reward twice. Double your reward. Why twice

00:41:41--> 00:41:50

the so for you becoming Muslim and two for your followers becoming Muslim, we're gonna come back to this point here for our later for in

00:41:51--> 00:42:12

every scene and if you reject or turn away from this invitation, you will be gained and you will get that you're the sin of lrec in the presence, you will get the sin of the presence then it says what and and then the process puts a verse.

00:42:14--> 00:43:03

So it says, which means and I recite to you or the statement of Allah Kalia Al Kitab tolo Illa Kelly Mateen Sawa in vain and obey Allah. Allah Buddha Allah Allah will unleash the cabbie. So, say, O Muhammad, O People of the Scripture and in the Jews and the Christians come to a word that is just between us in you that we worship none but Allah and we do not associate any partners with him. When I talk about buena Baba, Baba min Daniela and that we do not none of us will take others as Lords besides a law for into a low for kulu for Polish hadoo be a non Muslim, and if they turn away, say bear witness that we are Muslims. All right. Now, that's it. Those are the contents of the letter

00:43:03--> 00:43:16

very, very short to proceed. I'm inviting you to Islam, become Muslim, you will be safe, Allah will give you your reward twice. And if you reject or turn away, you will get the sin of the peasants.

00:43:17--> 00:43:20

Number one, this we learn about

00:43:21--> 00:43:59

the effects of leadership on people. Number one, the prophet SAW Selim so the proof that if you're giving Dawa, you give out to the people up top, and that doesn't mean you're ignoring the people down below. But the shortcut is if you can convince the leadership to become Muslim, then you will easily get everyone else. The proof the president sent letters to the kings, to Huracan, Turkish Lira and so on, he sent letters to the Kings because if they become Muslim, and the people have taught become Muslim, it will be much easier for others to become Muslim. One. Two, we see that the dialogue as we said between the prophets and their people was always with with the leaders amongst

00:43:59--> 00:43:59

their people,

00:44:00--> 00:44:01

then

00:44:02--> 00:44:28

and that's why the person said you will get your reward twice because the effect of leadership and if you don't, you will get their sin because you're blocking them from Islam. No other evidence that going you go to the leadership first. It's strategically the better option. When the President went to a party if he went to the leadership as well. And you if you remember the three young men and the three men he spoke to and told him he's a prophet. And so you know,

00:44:31--> 00:44:59

Habib and AB de la land, and they all rejected him, but he went to the people up top. One more proof that's so powerful about the effects of leadership. It's so so powerful, kind of didn't really draw the line on. He was such an intelligent man so smart. One of the companions later on, he says your holiday, you're so intelligent. I don't anything. Why was your Islam delayed so much, someone as smart as you. You should have been from the US.

00:45:00--> 00:45:39

earliest Muslims. So listen to the response of hyperthermia lead, and you told me about the effects of leadership. He says there were certain men in Mecca we used to equate their brains, their minds, wish to equal them or see them as killed zhiban equal to the mountains. Who is he talking about? He's talking about a hula have a boo Jan, we used to see their brains to equal the mountain in weight. So when they said it was a bad thing, we never bothered to look at into it for our own selves. We never bothered to read the Quran, we never bothered to sit with the processor and know what his message was we distrusted them so much.

00:45:41--> 00:45:45

Do we need any further proof about the power of those in leadership positions?

00:45:46--> 00:46:01

And the answer is no. Right? And that's why when you see what's happening around the world, and you see specific leaders that are so horrendous, and people still thinking they're great, or when they die, people go out in the streets and crying and even though they were evil, but

00:46:03--> 00:46:13

that's part of it. You know, or when people are told this group is bad, that group is evil, and everybody believes it. You know, someone sent me a video today have

00:46:14--> 00:46:25

a box of more dates. You know, this army. Some of you have seen that video, perhaps Yeah. Mole dates, as someone left a box of mammal, Dave's date at a gas station.

00:46:27--> 00:46:32

They called the bomb squad and someone forgot a box of cookies.

00:46:33--> 00:47:05

And they called the bombsquad. Why? Because it has Arabic on it. And the cookies now, cookies. But if it were any other length, but why? Because they were trained that Arabic is a dangerous language. If it was a box of Chinese cookies, someone who just probably take it home and have some tea with it. But here because it's Arabic, we have to call the bomb squad. As if the guy who is going to put a dangerous object inside a box will purposely pick a box with Arabic writing on it.

00:47:06--> 00:47:16

I would think he should get a box that says open me for example, you know, free candy method. Why out of all things kind of anyways, but this is what

00:47:17--> 00:47:25

people just believe anything and people are on edge the minute they see Arabic in Arabic, one of one of the Michelle has a friend of mine, he said a long time ago.

00:47:27--> 00:47:46

He said he got to the gate and remembered that he left his his notebook that Danny is a writer also he's an author. He's he left his notebook, obviously a Muslim writer, what do you think he's not local have Arabic and English in it, right? And it had a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge.

00:47:47--> 00:48:02

So he said when I remembered it at the gate that I left my notebook at the checkout at the security whatever said when I came back, there was like a T squad team SWAT team and dogs and for a notebook. Why? Because there's Arabic in it.

00:48:04--> 00:48:04

And

00:48:06--> 00:48:25

dogs and all kinds of people. He came in said Sir, is this your notebook said yes. It's my notebook. He says the guy says Why do you have a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge? He said I'll show you why. He took out his book. The book had the Golden Gate Bridge on its cover. We use that picture to make the Okay We're very sorry, sir. Go ahead. You're free to go.

00:48:27--> 00:48:28

Anyways, by the

00:48:31--> 00:48:54

power of leadership people very, very powerful. The effect is very, very powerful. How did when it was so smart. We never bothered to look at Islam because the people I trusted said it's not good. So I never looked at it. How many people around us are just like that today. And that's why outreach. People being out there and speaking and engaging people very, very important right now. Very important. Okay.

00:48:55--> 00:49:22

Now also in the verse what is interesting, come to a word that is just between us who knew we worship none but Allah we associate none. No partners with him. And we should not take any Lords besides Him. And it's calling and it's calling the Muslim Christian Jew to come to terms that they all agree upon. And this is a known a technique where you start with points that you have in common sorta Lanka boot, Allah subhanaw taala says something very similar.

00:49:23--> 00:49:38

Whether to Jai de leeuw Anil kitabi illegibility us and do not debate or discuss with the People of the Book except in the best way 11 avala momentum Excel except those will commit in justice from amongst them. There's no talking obviously in there, in that case.

00:49:39--> 00:49:59

Well, kulu and say and look, it's calling you to agree on things you have in common or start from the commonalities. So we're kulu Amana, Bella de unzila, Elena de la koo, we believe in the one what was revealed to us and reveal to you were Ella, Ella, hoonah wide and your Lord and our Lord is one

00:50:00--> 00:50:36

We're not no Muslim and unto him, we submit start from that. They tell you that if there are 99 differences between you and someone else. And just one thing you have in common start with the one thing you have in common, don't start with the differences always brings it closer. And that's just also a part of human nature, how, when someone's similar to you, you will naturally have this affinity towards them, you naturally bond with them very quickly. If you know you're in another part of the country, and someone has whatever, your favorite sports jersey on your favorite team, and you meet him in New York, and instantly you're going to connect with that individual, and so on. And so

00:50:36--> 00:50:36

far, there's so many.

00:50:38--> 00:51:13

I always give the example that so I go fishing, and sometimes I make friends with people while not at the at the lake. Well, we're both shopping for fishing rods. So I'm standing at the market looking at fishing rods. He's standing over here looking at fishing rods, he looks at me, I look at him. Where do you go fishing, I like to go to Brooklyn, oh really caught a catfish, this big of Brooklyn and I was fighting it for one hour. And we were talking and exchanging stories. And then we exchanged phone numbers, and then we agreed to meet at the lake. But because we have something in common, but imagine I'm shopping for fishing rods, he's shopping for fishing rods, I look at him and

00:51:13--> 00:51:15

I say, hey, what religion are you?

00:51:16--> 00:51:31

Do you think we'll be exchanging phone numbers and agreeing to meet at the lake? Maybe so one can drown the other or something. But all right. So the power of leadership, and that's why the person would send the letters to the leaders. And there's a lot of evidence on it, but it's just powerful. But

00:51:32--> 00:51:51

any and you know other examples of, of those who brought their entire tribes to Islam, because they had that position to fill up the ombre dose he brought all of those to Islam, a Buddha lived, he brought all of life up to Islam, and so on and so forth. So

00:51:53--> 00:52:26

Abu sufian then said, When Huracan had finished his speech and had read the letter, there was a great hue and cry in the royal court because so everyone understand what happened not. So Huracan knows that. There was a letter coming to him from that man who says he's a prophet. So he says, Let me find out more about him. See if there any Arabs in the area, they go to the market, they find absolutely and his followers, they don't know who they are, they bring him in. He asked him certain questions. And then when they were done with the questioning, he said, Okay, now where's that letter? Because he was told there's a letter coming to you. Where's that letter? And then he read

00:52:26--> 00:52:47

that letter that one we just read. And then there was a people do it like an outcry and people were speaking in an excitement in the Royal Court. So we were turned out of the court. Quickly. They got the guts out, sent us off course lovely, thank you. We're done with you. I told my companions he said laqad Amira, Umbro Eben Abbe capcha

00:52:49--> 00:52:56

he said this affair of Eben Abby capture has become so prominent. So, why this name?

00:52:59--> 00:53:14

So why why refer to the person as the son of a b capture. And it was like a for them a derogatory way of referring to the Prophet segment. And they explained that he was the husband of Halima, a Sadie, the,

00:53:16--> 00:54:01

the foster mother of the process. And others say that he was the grandfather, but basically the great grandfather of the mother of the prophets of the great grandfather of the prophet or his mother, and his story, he was a mecca and lived in Mecca, he goes out to a shop, he goes on a journey to a shop. In the old days, when he got to a sham, he saw the Christians. He asked about Christianity, and he became a Christian. When he came back to Mecca, he came back as a Christian, not as an idol worshiper. So they now even though he didn't have a strong tie to the profit, asylum, but they're trying to refer the person and back to this man who also left the religion of the

00:54:01--> 00:54:24

kurush. You see what they're trying to do. They're trying to say, like, you basically you're following the way of your great, great grandfather, he went and left our religion, and now you're doing the same thing. So they're referring to him as his son, even though he's from his mother's side. And if you're going to quote someone, it would have been from his father's side, right? Anyways. Um,

00:54:26--> 00:55:00

yeah. And, and he's also not a very known figure amongst the Arabs. So instead of referring to him as the son of Abdulmutallab, which that was his grandfather, who is the leader of the Kurdish at some point, it's more honorable, but it's even, in their mind more derogatory to refer to him, to refer him back to someone that nobody even knows who he is, and also left his religion like, and that's why and they've mentioned this a number of times this Hadith, Abu sufian mentioned it. When the Prophet lamp after the morning of a certain Mirage, he returned and he told him that he went to better luck.

00:55:00--> 00:55:14

And he came back they said it takes us a month going a month coming and you did it in part of the night and you here you are in the morning amongst us. And he said yes. So there were some holding their heads some holding them out. So putting the sleeve in their mouth. Some

00:55:15--> 00:55:21

narration says clapping their hands in disbelief is a very, very cultural, very Arab thing like this.

00:55:24--> 00:55:28

Many people are telling what does that look like? And they think it looks like no, like

00:55:29--> 00:55:31

clapping their hands in disbelief.

00:55:33--> 00:55:41

And they said on the Roma kolu, Eben Abbey capture, look at what the son of Adobe capture is saying. Trying to be derogatory also.

00:55:42--> 00:56:13

So apostrophe answers, Lockard Amira Umbro Ebner AV capture, and his affair has become so prominent in who you're half who Maluku banning us for, to the point where the king of banning us for the Byzantines Yani is afraid of him, because of all the issue and all the outcry and all that, and he's gonna rule the ground under my feet, and I would go wash his feet and all that stuff. So even the king have been in us for literally is the yellow people learning but that's what they used to refer to that

00:56:14--> 00:57:03

to the Europeans. And so but he meant he meant the room, the Romans, the Byzantine farmersville to move in an under who's ever had at hand, Allahu Allah and snap. So I remained from that moment on certain that he will be an who say that he will be victorious or superior, victorious, really, until Allah opened or entered Islam into my heart. So he was certain from that moment on that the Muslim is going to just move forward and he's going to be victorious. And yet, he still remains this a disbeliever until way later on until after the conquering of Mecca, he said, but then so then the Hadith ends here. And then it says the sub narrator adds Abner, now Tor was the governor of India,

00:57:03--> 00:57:16

the governor of Jerusalem. And Huracan was the head of the Christians of a sham if not totally erased at once, while Huracan was visiting Jerusalem. He got up in the morning and he was in the sad mood.

00:57:17--> 00:57:39

So some of the priest asked him why he was in that mood, and Huracan also was like a soothsayer or Janya, foreteller and an astrologer. So he says, At night, when I looked at the stars, I saw that the leader of those who practice circumcision, yeah. had appeared.

00:57:41--> 00:57:50

Yeah, medical, medical vitani kazar. The King of those who practice circumcision has appeared.

00:57:52--> 00:57:57

For men, yes. 13 min Howdy, Luma. So who of the nations here

00:57:58--> 00:58:32

do the circumcision? And who practices circumcision? The people said it besides the Jews, nobody practiced circumcision. And you shouldn't even be afraid of them. Why? Because they were at that point, they were oppressed, and they were at a very low level, there was no chance and don't worry, they can't do anything. That's what they're telling you. The only ones who practice circumcision are the Jews. And there's nothing they can do. Don't even worry about them did not significant at this point. But they still said just issue orders to kill every Jew present in the area. And they're gonna get it.

00:58:34--> 00:58:56

Didn't even finish doing the research, the shallow just kill every Jew in the area. But while they were they didn't happen while they were discussing that a messenger sent by the kings, the king of the sun. So the sun was a tribe of Arabs. All right. And so they're in the towards now the area of airdrop and so on the assassin, and they were huge and very powerful

00:58:57--> 00:59:08

group and had huge armies. The Battle of the book was supposed to be against the assassin. And they were allies of the Byzantines. So

00:59:09--> 00:59:53

again, Arab Christians, but they're allies of the Byzantines. So the king of a son sent a messenger. So this messenger now is Arab, is Christian, but he's Arab. So he sent a messenger to convey the news of the process lm to Huracan. So he was brought in. Having heard the news Huracan ordered the people to go and see whether the messenger from a son was circumcised. And the people after seeing him told her up on that, yes, he was circumcised. And hirako then asked him about the Arabs and the messenger replies, Arabs also practice circumcision. So the Jews just got saved because they're not the only ones now, after hearing that Huracan said that the sovereignty of the Arabs had appeared.

00:59:53--> 01:00:00

And hirako then wrote a letter to his friend in Rome, who was as good as hierarchal in knowledge. He was as knowledgeable as

01:00:00--> 01:00:12

Huracan. So he wants to get another opinion from another scholar. So he writes to his friend in Rome. And he says, so then Huracan, then left four homes, a town in Syria. And he stayed there until he received the reply from the letter of his friend.

01:00:13--> 01:00:55

So remember, he was in Jerusalem. And he had that dream when he looked at the stars at night and not dream, looked at the stars at night. And then they saw the messenger from the sun. So then he wrote a letter to a friend of his, his consulting a chef also in Rome. And then he remained in homes until the reply came to him and his friend tells him I agree with you about the opinion of the emergence of the Prophet and the fact that he was a prophet on so now Huracan is convinced, based on this letter, his friend also thinks that Mohammed Salim is a genuine Prophet, the news he got from the king of the sun, the questions he asked about sofiane.

01:00:56--> 01:01:31

So he was convinced this is the genuine profit and this is the truth. So he wants to become Muslim now, on that he invites all the leaders of the Byzantines to assemble in his palace at home. And when they all got together, he ordered the guards to close all the doors of the palace. Then he came out to them he said, Oh Byzantines, he said, Yeah, Mashallah, Rome or Romans basically, hand knuckle fill fella were rushed. When Yes, Buddha, Malcolm tapiola.

01:01:32--> 01:01:36

Ish, for to buy euro, they had an OB. So he says,

01:01:38--> 01:02:23

No Byzantines, if you desire or success is what you desire. And you seek right guidance to be rightly guided, and you want your empire to remain, then give pledge of allegiance to this prophet and become Muslim, is what he said, When so this is what he would like them to do. And he closed the doors and he wants to test them not to see if they would accept because he's smart enough to know he will be victorious. Let's be with the winning team. What happens? So the they said that the people start running towards the gates, like on a journey, which means donkeys, they ran like donkeys to the gates trying to get out. And of course, the days the fund the doors closed. So then Huracan

01:02:23--> 01:03:02

realized their hatred towards Islam, and their unwillingness to become to change it to become Muslim. And then he lost when he lost hoping them becoming embracing Islam. He ordered that they brought back their colossal, everyone come back, they came back. He said, what I just said, was to test the strength of your conviction. And I've seen it I'm very pleased with what I see. And it was just testing. It wasn't really serious. He was serious. When he he basically realized that they're not going to support them and he's going to lose his position. He's going to lose his power and his empire. So he just said, Look, I was just testing you guys to see how firm you guys were and I'm

01:03:02--> 01:03:21

very happy with what I saw. Good job, everybody, basically, and the people then prostrated before him and he became pleased with him. And this was the end it had the narration that I didn't know how to entertain. This was the end of the story of hierarchal meaning in connection with his faith. Now.

01:03:24--> 01:03:25

Yeah, but

01:03:30--> 01:03:33

so, so 930 is a solid No.

01:03:34--> 01:03:34

Okay.

01:04:03--> 01:04:03

Shadow,

01:04:08--> 01:04:09

Shadow,

01:04:17--> 01:04:17

Shadow,

01:04:25--> 01:04:26

shadow and

01:04:34--> 01:04:35

hey

01:04:55--> 01:04:56

hey,

01:05:05--> 01:05:06

Hey,

01:05:43--> 01:05:45

all right, basically the last two points,

01:05:47--> 01:06:29

comparing Huracan, who saw that he's gonna lose his kingdom, and therefore decided to remain upon this belief, even though he knew the person was going to be victorious. And if the story just ended, there would be a shame on him to not follow the person. But it's worse than that. Because later on, he sends an army to fight the process of not knowing this is the Prophet of Allah, and he will rule this area that I'm in right now. And he still sends an army to fight. Compare that to Iraq, to an A Joshi, who becomes Muslim, and he keeps his Islam a secret. And at some point, his followers, they figured out or they were suspicious that perhaps he had left their religion. So the narration says

01:06:29--> 01:06:47

that he took some writings of the Quran, some Koran pages and put it under his garment like this. So when his people came to have the meeting with them, he said, What is the problems that we fear that you have? And we're suspicious, he may have left our religion. He said, What what are your beliefs? They said, We believe this and this and this. And he said, and I'm upon this

01:06:48--> 01:06:52

meaning I'm upon this year, what's under my shirt?

01:06:53--> 01:06:53

Right?

01:06:54--> 01:07:16

Now, when young people hear this story, that why didn't he make his Islam public? And so what if he loses his kingdom and it's all for the sake of Allah relax a little bit. So not everything is muscle, the brain is more important. If he comes out and says, I'm Muslim, if you don't like it, you can this and that, and then he loses his position, what's the damage, the damage, the great damage that will happen?

01:07:19--> 01:07:45

Yes, you will not be able to protect the Muslims. Not everything is about muscle ensuring will sometimes you lose your brain. So here, he would have lost his position and the ability to protect the Muslims and they probably would have been persecuted because, oh, they're the ones who corrupted our king. They're dangerous to have browntown. So he kept it to himself. And then and he died upon that, and he was able to protect the Muslims for all these years of the lawn compare hierarchal to

01:07:46--> 01:08:02

an Apache and you just see the truthfulness here, and all of the knowledge of Heroku didn't help him at all. It just recognizes the genuine profit and then still didn't follow him. Right. So we'll end here. Zappala, Hara, for coming for your attentive listening so long, Ahmed, Salaam Alaikum.
