Yeah, send it across to local Ricardo
mano Haman hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah I mean, he was happy Jemaine is the audio. Okay? Can everyone hear?
Okay. But first of all, who wants to share their favorite part from last week?
And by that I mean yeah. Any other appoint that?
That you always heard but overlooked? or something of that sort then what was? What would it be?
Okay. My favorite point. I don't know if this was last week or the week before but my favorite point is the problem tying the Iraq to, to the post in the masjid. And it's my favorite point, not because.
Because mostly, I've never seen it discussed in any book, and I've never heard, I'm sure you probably have, but I've never heard any scholar discuss it. And I never saw it discussed in any book. So it's a fine point. And we chose to stop at it. And we came with, with some possible wisdoms that were very, very plausible and very intelligent. Mashallah, so I like the fact that you could for years and years skip over it, but then when you pause, you can still come up with some benefits. That was one point. Anyone else?
Uh huh. Excellent.
Okay, so brother Gibran liked that from the evidences that the journey was actually physical, the need the process,
the, the need,
the writing and the journey itself being described in detail. Whereas in other Hadith, where the person himself paradise and hell for in a dream, he never mentioned how he got there at all. He just says, I was taken to Jenna with two angels. And I saw this and I saw that then we went to this place, we thought, it doesn't describe the knocking at the door of the heavens, and then you know, who was it is Mohammed Al Salaam, with you, and so on. So that was another point. Now, since we're on that point, remember this book we spoke about, I think on the first day,
what is it called the life of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and it's written by Hamad Hussain Hakan, it's quite a popular book. And he said, the one of the the commentaries of scholars on this book is that
he always tries to make it like the knee. He mentioned, gibreel, never really mentioned jabril, I think I read a part of it to you, where he said, the President was sleeping in the cave, and then jabril came to him, and you can read it and not catch it. And unless you know that this author, he specifically likes to twist the stories that in that direction.
I know someone who read the whole book cover to cover and loved it, it was excellent never cut the idea that he's trying to hint to these things.
After his chapter on its own marriage, there's a small paragraph, I'd like to read it to you. He begins by mentioning
our claim that the journey took place in spirit and in body. So he says those who claim that they sort of took place in body explained in support of their view, that when the Prophet against them, which is always omitted in the book, proclaimed the news, Muslims or non Muslims asked him for proof. He's mentioned in some of the points we mentioned last week. He's saying this is what they say. Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam described to them caravan of camels he had encountered on the road to Jerusalem. He related how he led the leaders of that caravan to one of their beasts, which had gone astray in the desert, how he drank from a water jar carried on the back of one of those camels,
and how he lowered the lid of the jar after he drank from it. There elated. That brokerage had inquired about the caravan and that the report of the caravan leaders has confirmed the presence of his claim and description. So that's what he's saying. He's saying, people who say that that was a physical journey as we do. They claim that the incident of the caravan problem drank from it.
But then now his argument comes on the other hand, those who believe
It's Ross enough, do you catch this or not? Did you catch what he's saying?
Hey, we're already those who believe and he already made it like these are two valid opinions very smooth, very smooth. There are two opinions, those who say this, and those who say that
those who say this those who say that there is this under those guys are wrong, sorry. On the other hand, those who believe that it sort of took place in spirit do not find such reports unbelievable. Now that science in our own days has confirmed the possibility of hypnotism. And of the hand hypnotism, you're going to tell me a lot under the Prophet certain so much you can tell me hypnotism at the end. He says,
the possibility of hypnotism and of the hypnotized one, to report about events far removed from him, for a spirit holding in unity and presence, the spiritual life of the universe in total, in total,
for one so endowed with Vianney, what is this last sentence on one more time? And this is where some people when they read the sentence, they don't understand the show, this must be good stuff. I didn't understand it. This is heavy. So what's this sentence one more time, for a spirit holding in unity and presence, the spiritual life of the universe in total? For one so endowed with vision and power so as to penetrate the secret of all life from eternity to eternity? such a feat is not at all surprising. Yes.
How about what is this in total?
Like, fancy sentence. And in the end, the conclusion is potatoes without us. So you come up with Sorry, I need to be so harsh against the author. And I think you know, the problem, perhaps the book has other good parts in it and everything. I personally don't like the book very much. And it might be but a similar, let's be fair, it could be a very good book for someone who wants to have an idea of what happened in the life of the Prophet settler. But if you want to study the CETA
I personally don't recommend it. And perhaps there'll be other people who have read it cover to cover and have a better opinion of it. I've not really covered the cover. I'm just familiar with it. So maybe someone has a more valid opinion than, than mine. Okay, so anyone else want to share anything before we continue?
Any other point that you'd like particularly?
Anyways, um, but and also personally, like how the, the verses in the beginning sort of the wording of the verses also prove porcelain took the journey, physically. And they another interesting in how they prove a lot of things that it took only a part of the night and so on and so forth. Excellent. But, so that was, so what we've done in the past three weeks, in the 10th year, that is when the problem went to a five. And the only result and if for the most part this scholars say,
the result of Dawa for the whole 10th year,
the President went to a thought if that was one major event, the other major events is that the tribes would come for Hajj and he would speak to them out of the journey to a bar if and speaking to all the tribes in hajj, the whole 10th year, they say there was the Islam of a does remember the Christian servant and the Islam of the jinn. This is the 10th year year 365. But how many days? How many? Minus 11 355 354? Yeah.
All this this is the result in the 11th year, the president again gave the power in Mecca all year long. And then obviously then, the highlight was to wait for Hajj to speak to the tribe, which is what we're discussing today in Sharla.
But in the 11th year, also about four people became Muslim.
To became Muslim, you never hear from them again. They were
sued wait IGNOU sommet and S ignem life and he has supermodels a 12 year old boy, you never hear about them again. Because they died soon after becoming Muslim. And that's why you don't hear about them in bottles or doing this or doing that or any obviously they would have had positions amongst the early Muslims from the early Muslims. We don't hear of them again. So Adam islamically was a poet from Medina. And he came to Mecca for pilgrimage and the President invited him to accept Islam and he became Muslim. And
actually, yani, maybe next time we might get into a just for what it's worth is a very nice dialogue between the porcelain and suede. And because suede had some of the you know the the word that
wisdoms of Lockman. So had some of the wisdoms of Lockman. And he said it to the Prophet said love, didn't kill him told him I have something better than that. He's told him what you have is good. And I have something better than that. So he was intrigued, something better than that. And then the, the process, Selim recited some verses to him. And then he said, this is actually this is very good. He said, when he heard the Quran, so it's very beautiful meeting. And then it should, as was, if not more, it was a young man from the tribe of ours. So those two became Muslim. And then
Okay, then of course, the other to look now look to panel we're talking about the 11th year for people became Muslim. until of course, the pasilla meets with the tribes that had But until that point, four people became Muslim, those two and they died. And then another two, but those the next two, even though there were two in number, but they were they had a huge fantastic result later on. One of them was up with her Lv Ferrari. And I guess we're not going to go into the story of of without Ilan, but he goes, he comes into Islam, at this time in Mecca. And then he leaves and he brings his whole trouble VFR later on in Medina, and he they see dust, and it's the dust kicking up
into the sky, and it's the whole job of life are coming to the profit center. So Subhan Allah, honey foresightedness, trusting in Allah azzawajal, one man became Muslim, minimizing just three men this whole year. But this one man comes years later with an entire tribe. And then there was a profile of nama dosi, who goes and comes back with the tribe of dos 70 to 80 families now that does what does that mean? Any father, husband and two kids, families, families, Arab families, 70 to 80 of those? Hmm.
Three generations in one home. Excellent. So so then the, again, the whole idea is that the President spoke to these two men and he said you you know you can't stay here. And because your tribe can't defend you here, you're Muslim, you'll be treated badly by the Quran and you won't be defended, go back to your people call them to Islam, with what knowledge they're gonna go Go and call people to Islam. Very basic knowledge, just very basic knowledge that they took with them. And they're going to call and bring their whole tribe to Islam. And so they come back later, both of them come back after the hijra in Medina, with these great numbers to meet the Prophet sallallahu
sallam. So it's never ever ever lost with data, you know, and sometimes you get shredded to one person. And then that one person, he takes it seriously. And if you do a little bit of follow up, right and then that person goes and and and we know of any not secondhand, but firsthand stories of people think she had in the in the street. They love Islam and a lot opens their heart to Islam, and they start becoming active. Then they bring their entire family to Islam. I know one guy, he brought every one of his family to Islam except his mother. He brought his father distant cousins, second cousins, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents, one guy yeah. And I know another guy and he
took shot in the street like that. Then he's going to study in Medina, others going to study language in Egypt, honey, changing, come coming back, talking to families becoming imams. So the guy maybe we'll give him Shahada is probably never met them again, just give it to them in the street. Never saw them again. And that's it. But it just you never know how things work here. Okay.
until this point, in the B sort of learn how to send them used to tell people, oh, la, la, la La, c'est la Ilaha, Illa, Allah, you will succeed. But now the process Selim is saying something different. He now needs a tribe that not will just not will not to just say that it and Allah, but a tribe that will also that is also willing to defend the process of lamb and the Muslims who are with him, okay? Because now the dynamics of the Dow have changed. It's not just that you should say that a lot. But he needs a place to go to now he needs to move to a new place. And when he moves, the kurush will probably want to go to him or get to him in that area. Or they might fight the group
that's protecting him, so that he has to move to a group that's willing to defend him from the beginning. So now he's not just saying say let it allow you succeed. He's saying now I'm a prophet of Allah, and you should do you willing to defend me, take me in and to defend me. And just the same way you defend your own wives, your children, your families, because it to fight you would need to fight cooperation and maybe others if need be. So
the process of them doesn't know all the tribes and he needed
To make sure of a couple of things first, if he's going to speak to a tribe, and they say, Yes, we accept Islam, and we'll defend you, they need to be strong. Okay? It's not just Baraka here are 50 people, but inshallah Allah is with us. So the problem needs to, if the tribe says, Yes, he needs to make sure they're strong.
So because they might agree, but they don't have enough power, the second thing,
he needs to know that he's speaking to a leader from that tribe. And secondly, I need this is because the problem was so intelligent. And this is actually if you take any course in negotiating, they teach you this is one of the Golden Rules of negotiating first thing, find out who you're talking to, and find out if they can make decisions. Because if they can't make decisions, we spend an hour and a half negotiating until when we get to the terms clause we shake hands is like, okay, now I gotta go check with my bosses, if
you wish is not half of our time. So this is one of the Golden Rules of negotiating with the process. And since 1400, plus years ago, he knew this, that you need to talk to the boss, I can't talk to a few people. They got all excited, they make some degrees, they go home, the troubleshooter says you guys crazy? No, we're not doing this. So that means then
the processor needs to talk to the right tribe, and to the right people within the tribe, which means he needs to know a lot of things about who he's talking to. And who is an expert in these things. Very famous for
excellent santam obika della, who's an expert in these things, knows
the lineages and tribes and I think, was it here we discussed this right. But yeah, yeah, people used to love to listen to him. And then he would mention the lineages of different tribes. And he was also mentioned it in a positive way. It never tried to put one group down or their lineage down or anything like that, who had immense knowledge of tribes, and also who's the leader of this specific tribe with that specific tribe? So a number of things again, we see the process, a lot of planning. Yeah, and inshallah, when we come to the Hydra, Hydra is amazing the way they planned, it was really organized, very amazed. Amazing. It wasn't just bought, okay? Most people think, oh,
Bismillah Takata Allah, and you live in the house law, you have to get permission from the process lm who would have told you Yes, or no or don't go now and how many groups which and you're going by yourself, groups of twos groups of threes, it was very, very organized. So
again, here, the process of just approaching these tribes was very organized. First of all,
he would, okay, let me let me fast forward here a little bit.
For me, there was one point where the pastor said lamb would publicly say to the people, here, I need that I'm a metric messenger of Allah.
sent to you. Okay, so this is the wording. Yeah, Benny, so and so Oh, Benny, Annie, the tribe of such and such, I am the messenger of your Lord sent to you. You see how the wording is? Yeah. sent to you. It's very personal. So then he says, He commands you to worship Him, associate none with him. Abandon that what you worship besides Him, and you should believe in me and protect me so that I can present to the people what I have been sent with. So this is what he was saying to people.
Well, one of the narratives he says, this is one of the one of the eyewitnesses.
Yeah, this is a bad, a dually. He's an eyewitness. He saw the process of him doing this. And we mentioned this before, porcelain, he said he was walking, he would go to the different groups. He said behind him was the big fat man with cross eyes, crossed eyes, cross eyed man, big and fat with two braids. And everywhere the person would speak to people, he would come right behind him. Don't believe him. He's a liar. He's a madman. And I'm, we're his people. We know him better. I'm his uncle. And so that people then would discredit what they heard from the process, Ellen, because so he's just uncle, he knows him better than we do. We don't know this man. And again, we said the
amazing thing, the person never turned to him and said, Could you stop following you? Could you leave me alone? Never once.
now the situation is that the foster limb is going to really clearly ask them to defend him against the courage. And he can't do that in front of the Porsche. Right? They will never accept that. How dare you try to tell people get ready to fight to crash with me. So he The first of them did a number of things. One, he would talk to the tribes at night, we'd go to them at night and speak to them not in during the day. Number two, he would go to their camps not meet them at Mecca or at the harem. He would go to their campsite because there are many Hajaj
three and a third band Another benefit is that if he did make a deal with one of the tribes, what he would have no idea it will be between them.
distrubuted just accepted Islam and accepted to defend him four or three now he took abubaker rodilla on with him, because he knew the tribe. So if a tribe was weak, the prasadam would just offer them Islam. Remember, I mean, and this is the mark of someone who's genuine. And who has the floss. If the tribe was weak, they can't defend him. He didn't say, okay, skip this 10 No, still a message. So he would still give them tell them about Islam. And if they were strong, he would offer them Islam and offer them and ask them to, to accept or enable him to defend the Navy solo center. So the problem is seldom spoke to and these are just some of the tribes that he spoke to. And it's
interesting how the President spoke to each tribe with energy. And he won, but by the time he got to the 1215 tribe, he still has the same energy. So he spoke to the tribe of okaasan, the tribe of Mora, the tribe of sulayem, the tribe of ABS, another, that alaba tribe of hijab niqab, this tribe of
bass, Mahara fissara, all of them rejected his invitation, all in rejected his Dawa. And because the process alum and it doesn't matter, he would go to the next group with the same amount of energy because the idea necessarily is better. And not he dies. He dies when people accept, right, except Islam, and they're guided, but his job, and you get rewarded based on your butter, and how many as he tried to go to as many people as possible, and if they reject, you still get the reward true. If I give that to 100 people, only one becomes Muslim. Do I get reward for the 99? Yeah, it's not it's unlike a sales job that you might have. You only get rewarded for the ones that except Yeah, here a
large budget is most generous.
And Allah has no agenda rewards you even for those who refuse not an extra 950 years, and very few people followed him, it doesn't get any reward, he gets reward. So the reward is on the ballot. And in it's not necessarily just the hedaya that's when it counts. So
So now, I know one of the things I will have would say also people do not abandon the religion of your forefathers, do not give up and he's trying to break your ties with the alert and Elisa. And
and he's don't fall into the innovation that this man has brought forth all these things. Anyway. So the Prophet sallallaahu said, spoke to all these tribes, and all of them refused. So then the process went to Benny kingdom. And Benny, okay, when he, when he hanifa, these were other tribes that he visited. Then he went to Benny armor, body armor, it's a very strong tribe, they've never been defeated. And they seriously considered Islam.
They went, he went to one of their leaders, and they had a number of leaders and he actually met with all of them. One of them his name was by Hara Eros. And
yeah, this is Benny armeria. We're gonna do an AMA another tribe also. So he goes to buy Herbalife, Eros, and, and the problem caused them to Islam. And in front of the process, lm their leader, he says to the others, or one of their leaders who said the others.
No need to have the time and the occasion to be held up, look at this language to be held up. And he says if I were to succeed if I could win over this man, talking about the process of setting up from the Quraysh she's out eat up the Arabs. Yeah. And he'll destroy them or rule the Arabs. Yeah, so basically, that means he could see that the process alone is going to be victorious. And he didn't have a problem necessarily with the porcelain being a prophet of Allah. Okay. Then he asked the question though, okay. Now tell me what you can read from this question. He says if we give the br to you, and then Allah azza wa jal gives you victory over those who oppose you. Will the rule of the
land be to us after you and He will we after you die? Will we rule the land after you? This is the deal he wants to make? And we're going to support you and give you victory and inshallah Allah gives you victory over all these people. And later on you die who rules after you? Okay, who rules after you? And again,
when we come to the SAR, the people of Medina, you will see how excellent they are because they never asked this question. Fantastic people. So, so when your honor here, this man by Eros, he said, we're going to inherit the earth after you are the land after you. So remember now, just to make these things a bit more dramatic. Remember that process lm? Now this is the solution.
Until now this whole year until hudge, four people became Muslim. All right. Last year, two people, one human became Muslim, the rest of origins, alright, people are still being tortured in Mecca. The people that are still in Abba senior in the end, they're still away from their homes, they still want a better situation come back to even though they're comfortable at the senior, they still want to come back to their homes. All this is pressure on the buffets of the law to sell them.
So what would you do? And would you accept, and maybe I'll join and Benny armour here. And by the time a man enters their heart, and they go out to jihad, and the Quran, you know, is revealed to them, they pray with them, and they go through Ramadan, maybe they'll change this idea of there's so there's a lot of pressure relisting, maybe we don't feel it now. Because we know the rest of the story and the medallions will do a better job than banana. We know that that. But at that time, there's a lot of pressure. Ah, I forgot another point. The process alone? Why is he looking for a tribe, isn't he under the GMR of a multinational ID remember, when he comes back from a tie if he
had to get protection from someone, and he got it with an ID. But remember, it is not a Muslim. And it's a person who is smarter, and he knows is only going to last this long. He's one of them. He's a pagan, and they're going to start pressuring him after a while and he's going to drop the dua, just like the one Noah Dugan dropped the jar for abubaker. It's gonna it's inevitable. That's why he's looking for a place to go. So I want you to feel the pressure here the person is under, and this group and he went to all the tribes that we listed and these are just some of the tribes that we listed in all of them said, No, no, no, no, no. One group says yeah, we'll defend you give you
victory and everything. After you die, you're gonna give it to us or not. If and if anyone wanted proof the enemy saw Selim was a genuine prophet. This is the proof. Because if someone is not genuine, he's only after the dunya they don't care who rules after them. True or false? They don't care. If I die after I die, who rules who takes over? I ruled and, you know, we give him my I gave my children money and petroleum money and we took wealth and we don't have to that whatever happens to all It doesn't matter. But because he's a gentleman profits are seldom, he's not gonna say, Well, sure, after I die, you can do what you want to do. This is uh, okay. But
So the, the process that, um, responded to him, and amarilla Yoda, who hate Russia, that, that the sovereignty or the affair is with a law and he puts it wherever he pleases is not gonna promise you that I'm going to give it to you and you're going to rule the earth after I die or anything like that number to be sauce alum. Another thing that's really interesting. He used to give people what they want, right? People want capital, he gives them capital people want to become Muslim, but they're poor gives him gold, he gives him silver camels. But he used to never give leadership to those who want it and seek it.
You see the wisdom, because that guy is dangerous, really. And he's the kind that's willing to do anything to be in the leadership position. He's willing to lie to be a leader, he's willing to smear the other guy's reputation and campaign and all all kinds of dirty things. So
yeah, there's a there's a Hadith, yeah, where
was the Hadith?
The Hadith that says that we
that we don't give this a fair meaning ruling, any kind of leadership, we don't give this effort to anyone who asks for it. And anyone who's keen after it, this was the way of the processor and it's very, very intelligent as well. So it needs to give it to you who chase after it. You don't want that guy right. I mean, now but of course there's this other side to the equation. Yes. I think we all know that. Yeah. So someone is honest or someone is competent or someone feels that they could honestly do a good job. It's not discouraged nor is it disliked here to want the leadership position, okay.
But he at this time, even at this point, the man he wants it this situation that we mentioned, he wants it not because he wants he wants he feels he could do the best job and not necessarily because he wants to wear a good suit and mingle with with, you know, important people and things like that. By
Okay, where were we?
So then, yeah, so then the problem refused, right? And he said, This effort belongs to Allah, and he gives it to whomever he pleases. She's not making them any promises. So then the
people have been by hora Ross, he says we would need we're going to offer our next to the swords of the Arabs. For your sake, notice the language
Which, yeah, can understand a lot from the wording. Notice one more time Yeah. We're going to offer our next to the sort of the Arabs for your sake. And when you have overcome their resistance, sovereignty, the sovereignty will be for others. And we're going to do all the work and someone else is going to rule. We have no use for your mission la hija Tirana, p amrik. We've got we have no use for this mission of yours. You see, so now what do we see is his is he sincere or not? He's clearly not sincere at all. is not for your sake it's for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and it's not for the sake of ruling so now they want to support him because they felt that this man is going to
become victorious will then but but if we support him will become leaders of the Arabs. But when he didn't promise him the leadership, they're not interested. Okay, very good. But
then the problem so now we did with the there were all these tribes and some of them responded very rudely to the problem. Some of them rejected and said no, but when your armor This is where this dialogue happened where they
wanted to control the earth after and then Benny Shea ban. I'm going to spend a good whirl with Benny Shaban
first obergurgl on who went to them. And he asked me to come to find out who are you? If he's if they say Benny shavon he's gonna know all the things about them. But and just from their camp, he can't tell they don't like have colored tents or anything like that. So many of them, who are you? And they said shavon lava, the tribe of Shaban infallible, so that he asked who is now he knows immediately all about them immediately. You can imagine who knows their numbers, how stronger who their leaders are. So he asked who is amongst them and who's with you. And here the problem is with Walker law and who is with you? And they said my frog in armor and honey kabisa. Okay, and within
Adnan Harris rodilla, who later becomes a Muslim, and an omen even Shahrukh. So when they said these four names, he knew these now the leaders and the best of them are amongst the group as well. So then now we'll work with the lions gonna do something smart. Yeah. So he's going to now ask them questions about how strong they are. Because when you ask them about how strong they are, they it's hard for them to back down towards the end. Yeah. So I need someone to fight with me after the Holocaust. I need to beat up some people in the street. So I've got a brother. Well, obviously you're a good fighter, right? Like Yes, I'm good. He beat a lot of people up and so guy knock five
people at one time. So I need you to help me after he beat some people. Now it's hard for him to say no. He already beat up five people. Colossus hard now. That's what oh, Booker, the law on who's doing so shall after I shall.
So now notice no book of the law. And who is going from this angle? Very intelligent. Yeah. So he says, key philosophy. Cumani? How are your numbers? And they said, I'm a frog now. One of their lives in the frog. He says in a zoo and he says we are more than 1000.
What I'm talking about elfin Michaela and 1000 is not defeated because their lower numbers aren't used to always say this. You've heard this many times in history books. 1000 will be defeated because there are few in numbers. But Can someone explain to us why 1000 is so great to them?
It's just a very simple answer.
Realistically, populations were small, wasn't like now it looks 6 billion people on earth, you say 1000 people Mashallah controller, one oma conference 2000 people. So you can tell them, you know, 2000 will not be defeated will take over Calgary.
erase that part. So. So really, populations were small. And if you had 1000 warriors, that was a big number. Remember, the Muslim army budget was 213. And the Korean army was 1000 was so huge, and they were so proud of it. And then later on, they're like, the Muslims are about 1000 3000 and still has a magnificent army. armies weren't that huge. And even knew when when the Muslim has met armies of 240,000. There were 36,000 Even then, so, and the 240,000 was like humongous army shook the ground when they walked. So these things weren't very compelling. And so 1000 was very nice, very good for the Arabs remember, they're broken up into groups and pockets and, and tribes. So he said there were
1000 So then, now the book or the lawn is asking another question, and he knows what he's saying, but he's trying to get them all revved up. And so then he says, he's trying to say, Are you just 1000 but a bunch of weaklings are your strong 1000. So he says that waqif and men are too fickle, and he got strong or what? So, are you real men are just 1000 chickens or something.
Don't Afghan say it's better to send five lines and 500 sheep?
I heard that and Rambo three, so I don't know. Maybe it's fake. So my frog raised his voice. He got angry and he felt insulted. He said
in a shouldn't do my an akuna haba knew we're we're, we're severe in anger Hina Hina nilka anywhere severe in anger when we meet the enemy. Well, I shouldn't do monokuma Luca and Hina. Not Bob. And we are the worst to meet when we're angry. And this is tough talk, you know, street talk. Yeah. He says we prefer to be with horses over our children.
I'd rather be in battle than at home with my children. And what did they teach you in school today? I'd rather be in battle is certainly were tough people. Yeah. He said we prefer to be with horses over our children. And we need nvic but then also the nieces and victories from Allah. So now what what does that mean, watch this, and victories from Allah, He gives us victory at some times, and he gives others victory at other times. And in the end, you know, you're dealing with an intelligent man. He didn't just start talking about you and tear things up, and we're gonna do this and that, in the end, after all this after the anger, he's still you see that he's still
and Hakimi and he's a wise man. In the end, he still says and victories from a lot. Sometimes we win. Sometimes we lose. You didn't just make himself a hero. And he mentioned so he's still a wise man. So.
So then, okay, well, yeah, so then mafraq still, again, more proof that he was a wise man. This is not normal. You coming up to our tent at night, and hedge? And you're asking, Who are you?
Are you how many warriors do you have? And are they strong words? Like why are you asking these questions? So he's smart and he had heard of the affair of and the result of lohani salaam. So it says the aloka A who koresh perhaps you're the brother of koresh meaning perhaps you that men amongst the Porush, who's talking and all the commotion is about. So
this is the thing when the Arabs have these conversations young, or the old Arabs, at least, very smart things, and very, you got to read between the lines. And so then a worker so he says, perhaps you're the he doesn't know what the process looks like. Right? So he asked a worker perhaps you're the brother of koresh. And perhaps you're that Prophet that is causing all this commotion. So then over there's going to say yes or no anything like that. He says, Oh, look at bellava come under Rasulullah who have you heard that he's a prophet of Allah. So it's as if it's an agree the issue is it's very smart, as if it's already agreed upon. So then, but again, frog very intelligent also, he
says that Bella vana and who is called Alec, and we heard that he says that I will say, Yes, we heard he is weird that he says that. So and but he was also a frog. He was a very well mannered man as well. So then he turned to the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
He says, What do you method? Oh, yeah, haha. koresh says what do you call two? Oh brother of koresh.
And then the problem says, I call to shahadat and in a lot while the hula sharika and that I'm the Prophet of Allah, and to give me protection and support for Christ has belied the Prophet and his chosen falsehood over truth. And, and basically, he mentioned the query specifically, which is telling him that you're going to have to withstand the courage you're gonna have to meet the courage at some point. So So then, so the hit that was the first time he asked him, What do you call to or brother Of course, he asked him one more time, what do you matter?
What do you call to meaning what else do you call to Oh, brother of koresh. So the process lm then now decided to recite for an to them okay, so to recite or an
NB saw Selim chose to recite from verse 151, sort of Alma ADA. Okay. And any, from basically until verse 153. Yeah. So three verses only. This is the verses first pull Talu at Luma hora, mirrabooka Malaika. Alright. Now we're going to look at just going to underline some points in the
in the English. So I'm going to read it to Annie and and what is the Think of the theme of these verses that the President chose to tell them? Yeah, and this is, again, from the depth of the seat as we talked about on day one, or maybe day two. The series is so deep that you can just pick a theme and study it and write a paper or a book about it and you could you could literally be the first one
To look at it to examine it, yeah, any, someone could write a book on every time the price of lumber is right at the verse to one or non Muslim. And I guarantee you will find that it's always a verse that appeals to something in the nature or the character of that individual. Remember what we said about the frog is a well mannered man. Right. So then they're brilliant practice alum, we started these verses to him Come, I will recite what your Lord has prohibited from you. Join not anything in worship with him, be good and dutiful to your parents. Do not kill your children because of our fear of poverty. We provide sustenance for you and for them Do not come near and far Hashanah, the
shameful sins and illegal or illicit sexual relations, whether committed openly or secretly, and do not kill anyone whom Allah has forbidden, except for just just cause Jani, according to the within the Sharia law, this he has commanded you that you may understand then, and do not come near the orphans property, except to improve it, and you're going to whatever and build upon his wealth or invest as well, something like that, until he or she attains the age of full strength Eonni, they're able now to take control their own money in a mature way, and give full measure and full weight with justice. We do not burden any person with that which he cannot bear. And whenever you give your
word, Jani you judge between men or give evidence, meaning testimony, see the truth, even if a near relative is concerned. And even if you're, if it's testimony, and it's your brother in court, say the truth and fulfill the covenant of Allah, this he commands you that you may remember. And verily this meaning all the commandments of verse 5151, and 152 is my straight path. So follow it and do not follow other paths, for they will separate you away from his path. This he has ordained for you so that you become from an attorney. You see, what do you think of this choice of? Excellent, excellent. All manners and the conduct, and it's all of good manners and good conduct? Because
enough rope was someone have good
and good manners, and that would appeal to him more true. Excellent. Yeah. So this is an excellent technique, and this is an intelligent diet, intelligent human being.
So then, my frog asked him again.
Well, ilimitado Aidan Yeah. koreshan What else do you call to because my throat was really, really taken by this ayah he loved it, the beauty of the language and of the meanings and have what it's calling to. So he wants to hear more. That's why he asked what else do you call to? So he says the What else do you call to a brother of Quraysh and, indeed, we saw Selim recited verse 19, from Sadat, and the B
and we saw sell and recited
in the La Jolla, ugly with a son he titled corba when he wanted fascia, he will Moncure well, Bobby, you're a locum La La can corrode further. That's it just this one verse. Yeah, but it was, someone understands it's very weighty, it means a lot to them. So this is very late, enjoined and added to meaning justice and worshipping none except Allah and the sun. Meaning to be patient in performing your duties to Allah you do it totally for Allah just sake
and, and giving help to kith and kin. And, and forbids alfalfa, hay or fascia, which are all evil deeds, elicits sexual relations, disobedience to parents share lies, false witness, all these things. And then munkar also that anything prohibited by Islamic law, and any kind of shirk disbelief and things like that. And he admonishes you that you may take heat, that's also first, these three verses, and then this last verse, so then
mafraq tells him
he tells him the out, aha, Quraysh will la he lm Academy of luck, one mahasin Ahmed, he says, We're lucky. Oh, brother, he says, Jani. What you have called to a brother of quality. Well, he says what law what you have called to a brother of courage is the best of a club and the best of deeds. He was so moved by four verses that he heard from the profits of the loan center.
And then so look how moved he was then he began to insult the harsh that's how moved he was. And in one generation it says that he said, We're lucky this is not from the speech of this earth. And you know, no one on earth can speak like this. So is convinced this is speech from Allah subhanaw taala. But the problem is that
my frog in armor, he was not the only one of the leaders of benicia
And so he and he knows he's not the only leader. So then he says, After saying this to the pro salon, he says, and this is Han kabisa, one of our decision makers and slushy butina Yeah. And he basically, is a religious expert. Okay, so we need to get his opinion as well. So then Hannibal kabisa he liked Islam, because he was there, he heard all these ayat he was moved as well. And he says, I heard what you said, Oh, brother of koresh. And it's, I see that for us to live our religion, and to follow your religion, or as a result of one sitting, meaning one meeting, one gathering would be of weak opinion, and lacking foresight. And I like this and everything. But we
just met now. And we can't make this huge decision so quickly. Because because there's fighting involved and a lot of things involved. And
And he says, Yeah, and it would, it would be lacking foresight. And, and any,
any basically, it's any type of like misstep or error is usually due to
hastiness, so we don't want to be hasty. And behind us are people that we would hate to make a decision without them. And he's saying, We left behind us in our truck and back home. And in big shots, important people that we would like to consult. So we don't want to we're not just not everyone's here. So we can't make such a decision. But tarja one, or what turns or one under, saying, you go back, and we go back, and you review and relook at this issue. And we'll review and look at it again as well. What does it mean? mean? Let's think about it, let's take some time. To make the decision. You think about it, again, we think about it, again, is what he's saying. So, so
what it seems like is that they were really this is a polite way of kind of withdrawing from the and it seemed like masuk was ready. But Han here was kind of withdrawing, politely, because there's war involved in things like that. But since there was war, involved in battles, probably in the future and within inheritor, they said he should have a say as well. And he saw the introduced them and this isn't within shahana and our war expert. So the religious experts book, now the war expert has to speak. And, and within that says, that I heard what you said, and the an answer is that of Hana IGNOU, kabisa. That are my same answer is that of Hana. But then he added, were between two large
groups, or two large bodies, literally in the narration. And the President said, What are they? And he explained that we were between the Persians and the Arabs, because the tribe of Shaban, they were in like the the border of Iraq. Yeah. So he says,
As for the Persians, we can't upset them. As for the Arabs we can deal with this is we basically, we don't want to upset the Persians, but we can upset the Arabs and we can deal with those guys, but not with the purchase.
So if you like we can defend you against the Arabs, but they stipulated that they don't touch and go near the Persians. And then they say, What do you think, again, just to dramatize everything, and this is the situation and the bisazza needs to find a place to go? tribe after tribe is saying no. Okay. And one group is insisting only thing is that you give us the land after you we take over this group isn't doing any of that saying, you know, we just can't handle the Persians. We're being realistic. You know, we're strong and everything. But remember, the two superpowers at that point were?
Yeah, or Rome, the Romans and the the Byzantines or the Persians. So saying we can deal with those Arabs, but we can't deal with the super second superpower. And so
yeah, so then.
Okay, and there were other there was more details also here, just to go over it.
One of them. At one point, they said that we have just entered into a pact with the Persians, and that the agreement of the pact is that we're not going to enter into their borders, nor give refuge to anyone who wants to enter into their borders. And, and we see that you have brought something that the rulers of the world will not appreciate. And this is how it is because they feel it will take from their power. So most likely the Persian rulers aren't going to like Islam under at some point there's going to be a battle and we have a pact and a deal with the Persians. And
then, what happens a number of things
Okay, so then
Okay, so then here
it is. So the problem loved the way and they were bald man, other people were rude. Some people rejected rudely with unkind words, the processor, this was a very decent, very wise mature talk mature people that he's talking to. So but the person refused their offer that will protect you from against the arrows but not against the Persians. Even though it's not a bad deal, the problem now who's even thinking about Persians now someone needs a place to stay the problems. The problem now is the Arabs. We can accept now and deal with the Persians later we find another tribe later on. Arabs united will deal with the Persians. But somehow no look, even at this point, and maybe saw
Selim doesn't accept this deal. And he says, Yeah, and Mr. Murat is but is.
And he says, You have not been rude in your response. And you have been very eloquent, in being truthful and meaning the truth came out very clearly out of you. You didn't need play games or anything like that. Then he says, As for the religion of Allah, this is an amazing point. He says us for the religion of Allah, it will not be given victory, except to any man except through a man. A hopper who mean collegia wannabe, except to a man who has an ethnical
Honey, honey, basically, who I want something like that, so to a man except that he, I don't know why I lost the word Jenny.
Kind of surrounded because I keep doing this. Yeah, he, he kind of basically got all the all the angles and all the sides of the dean. He's not someone who's holding one angle of the dean only. And he said it will be given victory to a man who will
embrace some elk, you embrace all aspects of the deen. And this was the description. He's a very powerful description. Don't tell me I'll defend you from these guys. But not these guys will accept but you have to give us the land. It's someone who's going to take embrace the religion, all of the religion. You know, there's a saying I don't know if it's an Arab saying but but but in Sudan, we say it we say any, you can't hold the stick the stick from the middle. And if you have a walking stick, if you want to hold it from the middle, it's useless. You got to hold it from the top from one of the ends, you know, for sure.
For for me, that's what that's what it's saying. Now, just picking and choosing with the dean, grabbing it from the angle that you appreciate all this doesn't work. And that's why the person rejected, even though their offer nothing was really wrong with it. Persia is not our problem right now and how it'll be a number of years before the Persians and Muslims ever meet on the battlefield person could have accepted there's nothing wrong with the deal right now on the table. Except this is not how the religion of Allah has given victory to you have to embrace all aspects of the D era kill him and left for now. So that's why the deal broke. The President was pleased with their
madness. It was the first good meeting negotiating Didn't they didn't agree, but there were no insults or anything like that. And what is really the amazing thing is that this great man has great hobby and within
the amazing thing, they're afraid of the Persians. But later on, he is one of the leaders that will depose kisara and destroy the Persians, one of the leaders of the Muslim armies, the same man who's afraid of the Persians, now, he's gonna lie becomes a Muslim and ends up being one of the leaders of the armies that will destroy the Persians. Amazing. Okay.
And also the person who then says something to them, and he, he basically he tells them,
you might find it
and he says, Don't he tells them basically, to not oppose him and he wait for a while, some extended as don't don't oppose me right away and others mean, yeah, and he
was the other meaning.
I knew I knew you, it's saying you're going to see very shortly you will see how Allah subhanaw taala we and what would you say if Allah in a short period of time will give you their wealth and their land and their property? And what will you say if that will happen? Any meaning it's gonna happen? You refuse because of the Persians? How will you feel if one day Allah gives you their land, their property and their and their wealth, so that's what the person is telling them or it could be the human
I'm not sure which of the two it is. But some, some sometimes you find it as explained as that basically, don't oppose me. And just watch Don't be of those who are going to oppose me. But watch and you will see what will happen. And they and then he said, will you then praise Allah Subhana Allah and exalt Him and an amount of Sheree? Right?
And the magnitude of one and this is one of the things by the way that sometimes in translations they will translate the because it in Arabic When it's written it could look like charades or Shrek. And so it's in many English books you'll find the chariot but it's right. He said yes by Allah. And if we see that we will accept and we will become Muslim and will submit to a large region. And then In response, the prophets of Allah alum recited recites from sort of reserved verses 45 and 46. This is, these are the parting words.
In our son nakisha hidden when mobis shiromani the era where there is no law he isn't he was the Raja monniera and he walks away, but it will lay even the choice of these ayat is someone with confidence Yanni. The last parting words he tells them, surely we have sent you he's telling a verse for Allah speaking to him. Surely we have sent you as a witness meaning to truth, giving glad tidings and a warner and one calling to Allah by his permission, and a guiding lamp. What's the right glowing guiding lamp was the Raja monniera and then the prostate lamp left.
how much time do we have, we have about five minutes or so. And we're actually not going to use up the five minutes. Where we're going to end is with
the profits of the law seldom hear
the problem set then, after talking to who was the tribal we're talking to just now. I will finish a barn after talking to them he found just six men sitting together and the details are coming in shallow next week, six men sitting together and he went to them and he said
where are you people from?
And they said
I will stop here.
For your attentive listening, mellow word all of you for coming.
Does anyone want to say anything in the next five minutes any comment or anything? commentary that you may know or heard of and you something you want to add or share?
embarrass me in front of people are okay, inshallah. Just kidding. Yes, inshallah, we will continue that lesson
by Mr. Emanuel. Is that after Isha?
No, they're not here, but we never we told them that will. Yeah. Call us okay. But Alicia.
Okay, so after, you know, remember the brothers or brothers who came and visited us from what is it Vancouver, Victoria, from Victoria. And they are building a Masjid called Mr. Lee man. And we invited them actually to come and sit and address you tonight as well. But they are not.
They weren't able to because our flight leaves at eight. And so we told them that we'll let everyone know, I think one of two important things. Yeah. And we don't overpraise the brothers in charge of the IC in front of Allah subhanaw taala. But we're lucky many, many times you travel around North America. And if a group wants to come and fundraise in your neighborhood, the people act will lie so selfishly and in such a stingy way. This is our money, our community's money. They see it as the committee's dollar signs of everyone's $1 sign, and I can get something from your pockets. But this money belongs to the people that can spend it wherever they want. This is a house of love being
built in Victoria. And it's called Mr. Leeman and Muslims will pray there. And it's not that because well, it's far and what should I get? It's one of the houses of Allah being built in the London cover one of the houses of Allah, so you give to it. It's the same reward as building a Masjid in any other place in Ontario in San Francisco and the same is the house of Allah azza wa jal. So they were pleased to hear because they had they had said they said they had horror stories of places where they've been, and people would reject them and say rude things to them and hang up on them and why? why it's the house of a lot being built.
Why would you oppose it so much? So we wanted to show them and to show Allah azzawajal that we are believers who we don't care where the masjid is, if it's down the street or if it's across the world, people are going to make salute to Allah azza wa jal in that Masjid, because we're one oma.
We're gonna treat it like it's down the street. And one of us might move to Victoria or something like that. And then you saw hamdulillah give to this Masjid. Now I have a place to pray. My children have a place to go learn Quran. So after Isha, we have the on top of the box there. We've got all the pamphlets for not pamphlets. The Yeah, pamphlets for Mr. diliman take some home those who have any amount of cash. Let's have a brother. Yeah, so Brotherton had in the back there, his carrying a beautiful pink box. You're going to put whatever you can in that box and we're going to put the money in their account inshallah. And Allah Subhana Allah rewards and multiplies the rewards is up
in LA Harun salam, wa barakaatuh Mohammed is Ramallah.
