00:00:02--> 00:00:06

On the day that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

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

entered Mecca

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

Yeoman

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

on the day in which

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

the conquest of Mecca occur.

00:00:22--> 00:00:25

He entered Mecca As he approached the cabinet.

00:00:29--> 00:00:33

And after destroying all of the idols in the cabinet

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

1000s of Muslims were surrounding him.

00:00:44--> 00:00:45

He looked

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

among his companion

00:00:52--> 00:00:54

and he was looking for one individual.

00:00:57--> 00:01:00

So he asked, Where is

00:01:05--> 00:01:07

this is among

00:01:09--> 00:01:11

the notables and the leaders of

00:01:14--> 00:01:21

and among even the best of the companions, aboubaker and rumor and the others.

00:01:24--> 00:01:26

He's looking for one individuals without robiola.

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

He asked, Where is

00:01:37--> 00:01:40

the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:41--> 00:01:42

he taught me

00:01:43--> 00:01:48

and he said, Oh, Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is looking for you.

00:01:53--> 00:01:57

So we ran approach in front of all of the other companions,

00:01:59--> 00:02:00

and went to the Prophet sallallahu.

00:02:04--> 00:02:08

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, ob rod, come with me.

00:02:11--> 00:02:12

Come with me.

00:02:13--> 00:02:15

As I go inside of the cabin,

00:02:17--> 00:02:18

to be the first

00:02:21--> 00:02:26

I want you to be with me to pray with me inside of the cabinet, before anyone else.

00:02:31--> 00:02:32

Why

00:02:36--> 00:02:38

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:02:39--> 00:02:40

there I saw you

00:02:43--> 00:02:44

on the day

00:02:46--> 00:02:47

when you were tortured,

00:02:48--> 00:02:52

and no one else was tortured for Islam besides it.

00:02:56--> 00:02:58

And so it was because

00:02:59--> 00:03:00

of his sacrifice

00:03:02--> 00:03:02

to

00:03:05--> 00:03:06

the elevated him

00:03:09--> 00:03:13

to be, and to receive this honor,

00:03:14--> 00:03:16

that none of the other companion

00:03:17--> 00:03:18

had the privilege of

00:03:19--> 00:03:20

didn't end there.

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

After the keynote,

00:03:25--> 00:03:26

the Prophet sallallahu

00:03:28--> 00:03:32

He told me to get up and find the cabinet

00:03:33--> 00:03:34

and to give the,

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

from the top of the car.

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

And so we climb

00:03:41--> 00:03:43

on top of the shoulders of Abu Bakar and

00:03:44--> 00:03:46

the best of the companions

00:03:49--> 00:03:50

to call

00:03:52--> 00:03:53

from the top of

00:03:55--> 00:03:56

my dear brothers and sisters.

00:04:00--> 00:04:03

This privilege, and despite

00:04:05--> 00:04:06

that Billa rhodiola

00:04:08--> 00:04:12

received being an S slave

00:04:14--> 00:04:15

and an African

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

had nothing to do

00:04:19--> 00:04:20

with the color of his skin

00:04:22--> 00:04:23

or his ethnic background,

00:04:24--> 00:04:27

or where he came from, or how he looked.

00:04:29--> 00:04:30

But rather,

00:04:31--> 00:04:34

it was because of his email

00:04:36--> 00:04:36

and his

00:04:38--> 00:04:40

that translated into sacrifice

00:04:41--> 00:04:42

and interaction.

00:04:44--> 00:04:46

And so what raises certain people over others

00:04:48--> 00:04:49

is nothing like that.

00:04:51--> 00:04:52

My dear brothers and sisters

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

that elevated

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

certain people over others

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

What is it that pause the likes of VLANs. And to hate

00:05:06--> 00:05:07

and sell,

00:05:08--> 00:05:11

to become elevated over the life

00:05:12--> 00:05:12

of

00:05:14--> 00:05:26

a Buddha, my dear brothers and sisters, Islam came 1400 years ago, to basically abolish, and get rid of racism.

00:05:27--> 00:05:30

To get rid of this concept

00:05:31--> 00:05:42

of one race feeling that it has superiority over others, it came to abolish tribalism, that was among the errors.

00:05:43--> 00:05:45

And it came to abolish

00:05:46--> 00:05:48

ideologies like nationalism.

00:05:50--> 00:05:51

And so this worked for centuries.

00:05:53--> 00:06:04

Read Islamic history. And you will find how Islam raised individuals, to become leaders in society

00:06:06--> 00:06:07

to become scholars

00:06:09--> 00:06:11

to become educators

00:06:13--> 00:06:15

in all walks and fields of life.

00:06:18--> 00:06:23

And yes, they came from all different ethnic backgrounds.

00:06:25--> 00:06:26

What elevated them

00:06:28--> 00:06:29

is nothing like this D.

00:06:30--> 00:06:35

And what caused others who felt that they were superior to become

00:06:36--> 00:06:37

inferior,

00:06:38--> 00:06:39

in the sense of a loss apparently,

00:06:40--> 00:06:45

was nothing but this DVD. And so this continued on for centuries.

00:06:47--> 00:06:55

And it lasted for centuries. And this is why if you were to look across the Muslim world, what do you find

00:06:57--> 00:07:13

that Muslims don't come from one particular race or ethnic background, or speak one language, but rather the majority of Muslims around the world come from non Arab background.

00:07:14--> 00:07:16

My dear brothers and sisters,

00:07:17--> 00:07:18

this

00:07:19--> 00:07:28

is the reality of Islam. It came to abolish racism in a time where today, racism

00:07:29--> 00:07:30

is becoming

00:07:33--> 00:07:34

not at the individual level.
