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

Belladonna

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

alameen wa salatu salam ala

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

Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to Sri Lanka Sri Lanka sera from abajo.

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

Mario brothers and sisters

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

we are looking at the life of a primary salon, in our

00:00:24--> 00:00:30

classes on lives of the salon and lessons from the MBR limo salon.

00:00:32--> 00:00:36

And last week, we looked at

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

even I'm Alicia lamps, conversation with respect to the stars and the sun and the moon.

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

Now,

00:00:50--> 00:00:56

in Nicosia, Rama, light Allah, He says the divine very solemn was not searching for the truth.

00:00:58--> 00:01:01

And that his questioning was a method of doubt.

00:01:03--> 00:01:16

Because an Abbe of Allah subhanaw taala cannot be misguided. And since all people are created on their fitrah, which means that intrinsically internally, the,

00:01:19--> 00:01:32

the the recognition of Allah subhanaw taala is only one word as the only one worthy of worship. And this is true for everyone, and even more so, obviously for the MBA mussalam.

00:01:34--> 00:01:35

However, Abraham and his alum

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

were met these people

00:01:39--> 00:01:41

in where he

00:01:43--> 00:01:46

in the in, he went to a sham.

00:01:48--> 00:01:54

And on the way he passed through Iran, and that's where he met these people who are worshipping celestial bodies. And that's where he had this

00:01:55--> 00:02:01

conversation. He pretended to ask these questions, he pretended to say these things

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

as if he was searching for the truth, to show the people that the truth was not where they thought it was. And that is where it ends with in New Jersey.

00:02:15--> 00:02:26

Honey, Mama and Emil mush Leakey, where he said, verily, I have turned my face towards him Who has created the heavens and the earth. And hanifa which is

00:02:28--> 00:02:41

monotheism is to worship only Allah subhanaw taala without any partners, oma and me, then we should again, and I'm not from the oshi Koon. I'm not from those who join partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala.

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

Now,

00:02:45--> 00:02:47

his people then, of course,

00:02:48--> 00:02:49

disputed with him.

00:02:51--> 00:02:57

And these are the ayat of Surah talana wherever I'm at, but a lot of martela told us

00:02:58--> 00:03:22

what he said and what the dispute was. Hi, Joe. Lamanna. shaytani r rajim Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, Joe. Como Kala junie Villa hirakata. Danny, wha ha forma de Filippo NaVi in Yeshua ameesha. Was Here I Robbie Kula Shane Elma.

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

bramalea salam

00:04:06--> 00:04:21

said to the people, Allah said his people disputed and debated with him. And he said do dispute with me concerning Allah subhanaw taala while Allah subhanaw taala guided me and I do not fear those

00:04:22--> 00:04:37

whom you associate with Allah in worship, nothing can happen to me because of them. Except when my ROM wills something minor comprehends in his knowledge, all things Will you not then remember

00:04:38--> 00:04:56

and how should I feel those whom you associate in worship with Allah, while you do not feel that you have joined in worship with Allah, things for which he has not sent down to you any authority? So which of the two parties has more right to be in security? If you but no.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

It is those who believe in the oneness of Allah.

00:05:00--> 00:05:15

novella and do not confuse their belief with solemn with wrongdoing that is worshiping others besides Allah subhanho wa Taala for them only there is security and they are the rightly guided.

00:05:16--> 00:05:31

And what was our proof, which we gave Ibrahim and that was approved which we gave a Rahim Allah Salam against his people. We raise whom we will in degrees. Certainly Europe is all wise, all knowing.

00:05:32--> 00:05:33

And then our last round Allah

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

mentioned this

00:05:37--> 00:05:46

very beautiful story in Surah Baqarah about Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and his connection with Allah Subhana.

00:05:48--> 00:06:24

Allah Raja said we've Kala Ibrahim warabi Adeney kaifa to heal Mota, kala Avalon to Karla Bella Bella Kalia Marina kalbi fall color for holes are about a 10 minute query for Suhana la familia Allah Allah Cooley Jabba Li Min hoonah Judah, some mother o de la casa y la wylam en la la Aziz en Hakeem. And let's run into sin and remember when you were running with a Salam said, Myra, show me how you give life to the dead.

00:06:26--> 00:06:33

Robbie, our unique effort to heal Mota my brothers sisters I want you to think about this and see think see this

00:06:35--> 00:06:38

beautiful connection between the abdon is Rob jealous.

00:06:41--> 00:06:59

This is not even family Sarah is not in some need, where he you know he needs some material thing in this life. He's not sick. He's not asking for Shiva. He's not poor. He's not asking for money. He's not asking for anything of this dunya he's talking to Islam.

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

And you say your love show me

00:07:03--> 00:07:16

and then see the response of Allah subhanaw taala This is what always wherever I read this is really blows me away. What was this beautiful, beautiful relationship between the abdon is

00:07:17--> 00:07:27

between Allah Subhana Allah and Emilie Salam. How much of love of Allah is explicit in this relationship in this whole story?

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

Why do you think Rebecca Akiva

00:07:33--> 00:07:38

will not show me how do you give life to the dead? Now Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:39--> 00:07:43

does not answer the question. Unless is Carla available to me.

00:07:45--> 00:07:45

Unless you don't believe,

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

don't you believe?

00:07:48--> 00:08:04

Now, it is such a informal such an affectionate conversation. That's why like always think about design as a what kind of a relationship is that? And that is the reason why if you look at the life of Ramadan, Salam

00:08:06--> 00:08:07

Allah

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

tested him. And those tests they look so difficult and you know, magnesium is given down to these people and then at the end of that he is

00:08:19--> 00:08:37

about to burn him and they want to throw him in the fire. And that is a test and I told you the story of you know, the British lamb came there and asked him and so on and so on. And then there is a test of him leaving his family in this barren Valley in the middle of nowhere. And which was later on, became the CTO maka

00:08:38--> 00:08:43

and then go away. And then there is a test of him. You know,

00:08:44--> 00:08:56

Allah ordered him to sacrifice his son, all of these tests, but remember, the foundation of those tests was this relationship of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:08:57--> 00:09:15

Here was somebody who could talk to Allah like this, and is Rob geladeira, who responded to him and he responded to him in this beautiful way. Which shows this strength is his personal contact. This this deep attachment of one to the other

00:09:19--> 00:09:20

okay for

00:09:22--> 00:09:28

me, how do you live life to the dead? Unless Martha says to me, and this is Don't you believe?

00:09:29--> 00:09:30

And then what is he say?

00:09:31--> 00:09:34

Carla Bala wakeeney at Reiner Calvi.

00:09:36--> 00:09:46

Lucky Lee yet my knuckle isn't a force I believe. But why not? Of course I believe. But this is just for it's

00:09:48--> 00:09:50

just for me to feel

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

for more firm life it just for me to feel you know stronger in my faith. Just for more

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

Peace of mind it's not uncommon.

00:10:05--> 00:10:21

When he read this ayah and he explained the eye to Sahaba he said if Ebrahim Alayhi Salam could say that he said we have even more right to say it. So how can I do what what sort of an Islam is saying? He says if right if Ibrahim Alayhi Salam

00:10:22--> 00:10:32

could say, to say, We're like Elliott McElwee then we have an even greater right to say that I asked Allah subhanaw taala to

00:10:33--> 00:10:49

to help us and to show us his science as well to show us the signs in a way where the portrait of Allah subhanaw taala we look at it and we rejoice and we we glorify Him and we sing his praises inshallah.

00:10:51--> 00:11:27

The admin khulumani the admin, we ask Allah for each of our followers and this is not because we do not like it when 100 left. I am totally and completely convinced or moron, Elijah Allah who is Allah subhanaw taala and there is nobody other than Him and that nobody other than Him is worthy of worship. But like he said, he rarely salon was, I won't say the same situation with I'm not equating myself with him. His situation is is far, far, far superior. But I'm saying that he asked Allah for this and I asked him I also asked Allah for this and you also asked

00:11:28--> 00:11:30

and then tell us you know, what do you see?

00:11:31--> 00:11:36

What happened in What does I'ma show you one shot? So now whenever I'm asked this

00:11:37--> 00:11:38

question

00:11:39--> 00:11:40

I lost

00:11:41--> 00:11:46

I lost my answers and see the beautiful way in which Allah subhanaw taala answered this,

00:11:47--> 00:11:47

Carla.

00:11:49--> 00:12:15

So hold our bottom in a pod for Suhana la casa muda Allah Allah Cooley Jabba Li Min hoonah Judah sama Dorfman Nyah Tina casaya. While on aloha season, Hakeem, Allah rather now gives him a elaborate plan. Allah subhanaw taala says, okay, so you want to see how I give life to the dead. So Allah Subhana, Medina, Tez de for birds, then tell them,

00:12:16--> 00:12:31

make them your friends cause them to incline towards you, tame them, so that you call them they come to you, they become your pets. And then he says, slaughter them, chop them up into pieces, and

00:12:32--> 00:12:33

mix all that up

00:12:34--> 00:12:37

and separate that whole mix into

00:12:38--> 00:13:14

four portions and put a portion on every hill. They hear it doesn't say four portions, it says portions and it says put put a portion on every hill and call them and they will come to you quickly in haste and know that Allah Almighty and always think about that, how long do you think this takes because obviously you cannot catch a wild bird and and you know, tame it and whatnot. Now, some of them have a city they have said that these birds one was a chicken one was a peacock one was something

00:13:15--> 00:13:16

you know, I

00:13:17--> 00:13:31

my own approach to the Quran is not to say things like this, which really I don't think of the people who said there was one of the chicken one of the peacock actually has evidence for that. They are operating from their own internal

00:13:33--> 00:14:05

internal within quotes, logic and fears, to say how could he have got four wild birds, because we place we place limits on everything we place limits also on the order of Allah Subhana Allah. So we have to do to bring it down to our level of understanding. So we say well for bird well chicken is a bird. If I wanted him to get chickens, he would have got chickens I I don't believe in I believe that whatever is haram was being asked, and this is probably when he was a he was a boy and man.

00:14:07--> 00:14:25

So now for bird means that he has to find nests in which there are fledglings and then he has to take that fledging from the nest, and then he has to hand rear that bird so that the bird then imprints on him as its parent.

00:14:27--> 00:14:29

And then the bird becomes a

00:14:30--> 00:14:44

becomes his pet. So it's still a free flying bird. It will go away somewhere but he called it it comes it's on his shoulders, it's on his head, right and we have seen any any number of examples of that we have people nowadays actually cell

00:14:45--> 00:15:00

free flying songbirds, which are hand reared and so you get that as a little very tiny chicken they teach you how to feed it and so on and then I just bought flies around in your house and you know even outside and it comes back to you when you

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

Got it, and so on and so forth. So it is not it's not so difficult but point is and in those days, I'm sure that they want to, they want, you know, 100 board farms. So, effectively now evangelism is being given a task, which probably took him

00:15:18--> 00:15:28

several weeks, maybe a couple of months to complete. So for example, if I'm sitting here I mean, I've seen two or three I've seen a Robin.

00:15:33--> 00:15:33

Now the

00:15:35--> 00:15:37

primary ceram is

00:15:39--> 00:15:42

so my mighty take from this is that inshallah

00:15:43--> 00:15:45

in Ramadan Salam then

00:15:46--> 00:16:17

found these I mean, as I was telling you that the nest that has all barrows petals, who took over the Robin's nest, and then there is their own chicks in that. So this is, this is doable, but it takes time. So now you you know, find a nest and you pick up one of those chicks. And Allah subhanaw taala told him four different words. So, four different words. So now he can take, you know, for Robin chicks, so he picks up whatever was in those in those lands and imagine the birds of you looking at you're probably looking at Palestine or or that area.

00:16:18--> 00:16:24

So he picks up these birds nest, then he raises these chicks and he's got these four I mean,

00:16:26--> 00:16:43

having four, I'd love to have that for wild birds. Free flying. I hate cages and cage birds, you know? Absolutely. I think it's a absolute crime to imprison the boarding because you want to have a pet. But free flying Absolutely.

00:16:44--> 00:17:34

So have a free flying bird is coming and sits and talks to you is what I had in Ghana, I had a free flying Scarlet macaw a big bird and used to be all over the place. So anyway, the point is that this is what he did. And then he imagined this whole thing happening. Now he raises his birds, as I told you, it happens, it has to happen over a few weeks. And then when these are adult birds, they come to him, when he calls them, then he catches them, he slaughters them, chops them up into pieces and mixes it all up, separates it into portions. So this one person has, you know, has only feathers, maybe one person has one leg, one bird is the other leg of another bird and so on. And then he

00:17:34--> 00:17:52

separates them and he takes them now he's got to go we do is let him tell him just mix it all up and then call know, put them on the hilltop. So I don't know how many hills they were whatever they was, it doesn't mean that necessarily he put one person on every hill but he put them on, you know more than one Hill.

00:17:53--> 00:18:05

And then he calls them and these birds come to him and they come with a the the one bird doesn't come with the head of some other word I mean they come as whole as normal as they used to be.

00:18:06--> 00:18:10

Now imagine if this thing happens to you, how would you feel,

00:18:12--> 00:18:20

man how you will feel. So online VMD this is this is the power of Illustrator. This is the power of communicating with a lot

00:18:21--> 00:18:34

of talking to us. Now imagine a person like that when he makes what is the power of that door, what kind of device you making, how amazingly powerful how amazingly, amazingly amazing that door must be.

00:18:36--> 00:18:41

Really, I mean, if you if we we restrict ourselves,

00:18:42--> 00:19:10

we and that's the reason why I keep saying you know, don't reduce the religion don't reduce Islam into just a bunch of rituals. Islam is not a bunch of rituals, Islam is a lot more than a bunch of rituals. The rituals are important because this is what Allah subhanaw taala told us that, for example, the Salah is part of the Salah, the physical manifestation, the outward manifestation of Salah is a ritual, it is something that you

00:19:12--> 00:19:23

that you must perform in a particular way. You can't just do it any way you like, it's, you know, you have to do something in a in a certain format, you have to recite something, and so on and so forth. But

00:19:25--> 00:19:31

it's not to be restricted to that. Right, you start to stick to that. I mean, this is the beauty of it of

00:19:32--> 00:19:42

the point of Salah is that it connects you to Allah Subhana it's the ritual part of it is a formal way in which we do that. But

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

then the internal part of it is the connection. That's why the Surah Surah Sallam said I'm double de la Kanaka worship as you're seeing Allah and this doesn't mean only that you are as as if you are seeing Allah meaning that no My god, I'm seeing Allah Allah I'm so frightened. I'm so scared that you know, I

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

I must do the Salah perfectly, otherwise I'll be zapped with lightning or something No.

00:20:06--> 00:20:14

I am before Allah. And you know, if you think about this, tell me who who is your best friend.

00:20:15--> 00:20:28

I don't mean the individual. I mean, in terms of qualities, who do you call your best friends, you know, I call my best friend, somebody who, from whom I have nothing to hide.

00:20:30--> 00:20:34

Somebody who knows me, and who accepts me as I am,

00:20:35--> 00:20:46

is not somebody who's trying to change me is not somebody who's going to, when they see something in me that they were going to point a finger and they're going to, you know, count the mistakes, or they went to

00:20:47--> 00:20:59

the extreme range, they're going to be abusive, or they're going to insult me or make me feel bad about it or something, these are our friends, because you always have to be on guard with them

00:21:00--> 00:21:11

on guard against them, you cannot you can never let your guard down because the moment you let your guard down, they will find fault with you. And you know, obviously even nobody loves nobody likes people to find fault with them.

00:21:14--> 00:21:31

And sure, one should, you know, try to correct yourself and try to improve and so on and so on. But you know, how far that gets, I mean, there are some things which are worth improving. The other things I mean, sometimes you say you know what, this is how I am Take it or leave it there, you don't like it go away.

00:21:33--> 00:21:34

I can do without doing my life.

00:21:35--> 00:21:38

shot that tough. And you weren't born with me.

00:21:40--> 00:21:43

And when until I met you whenever that time was

00:21:44--> 00:21:48

I live perfectly happy without you. I didn't know you even existed.

00:21:50--> 00:21:53

So I can live without you. Even no big deal.

00:21:55--> 00:22:02

And especially if the person is somebody who always finds fault with you and whatnot, whatnot, in the guise of friendship,

00:22:03--> 00:22:07

how do we how difficult is it painful is it to live without them it would be very nice to live without them.

00:22:10--> 00:22:25

These are not friends. friend is somebody with whom you have nothing to hide from him. And therefore with Allah subhanaw taala and busy man I'm saying friend with Allah I don't mean friend on a parody level, obviously not allies, harlot we are must look.

00:22:26--> 00:22:35

So the translation that people don't really realize friend of Allah, or while you will as front of Allah or Allah, Allah as friends of Allah, this translation is wrong.

00:22:37--> 00:22:54

We cannot translate that word directly, as friend do the meaning of the word, his friend, but when it relates to Allah subhanaw taala it cannot be translated as friend because Allah has no friends. Allah subhanaw taala has mahalo Allah has his creatures is what he created.

00:22:56--> 00:23:05

And therefore when we are talking about Allah subhanaw taala, we talk in the context of polyphenolic you know, so that is the,

00:23:06--> 00:23:24

the the important thing for us to keep in mind that when you're talking therefore our relationship with Allah, if we define our best friend, as somebody from whom I don't need to hide anything, who accepts me as I am,

00:23:25--> 00:23:32

then who does this apply to? Better than it applies to Allah subhanaw taala

00:23:34--> 00:23:36

who knows me better than better

00:23:37--> 00:23:38

than Allah knows me.

00:23:39--> 00:23:47

Not only did Allah subhanaw taala create me but Allah subhanho wa Taala knows me is seeing me is listening to me, he is aware of me.

00:23:49--> 00:24:04

Every single instead of instead of my life, not only he is aware of all that I'm saying not only does he hear all that I'm saying not only does he see all that I'm doing, but he's also aware of all that I'm thinking all that I'm feeling.

00:24:08--> 00:24:09

This is Allah subhanaw taala.

00:24:12--> 00:24:17

Now, this does, that is why the importance of taking time out

00:24:19--> 00:24:22

to literally within quotes, do nothing.

00:24:23--> 00:24:25

Just sit and reflect

00:24:26--> 00:24:29

on our dialogue with Allah.

00:24:31--> 00:24:34

Reflect on our relationship with Allah.

00:24:35--> 00:24:36

What is that relationship?

00:24:38--> 00:24:40

What is the nature of the relationship?

00:24:41--> 00:24:44

What should that relationship be?

00:24:48--> 00:24:48

What is it?

00:24:50--> 00:24:51

What should it be?

00:24:53--> 00:25:00

Ask yourself this question. What is my relationship with Allah? And what should that relationship

00:25:01--> 00:25:03

And then you will get the delta will get the gap.

00:25:04--> 00:25:13

And then say, Well, if my relationship is here, and this is where it should be, then how do I bridge this gap?

00:25:14--> 00:25:19

What do I need to do? That is the reason this is the reason for the

00:25:21--> 00:25:24

importance of secret law.

00:25:26--> 00:25:31

And by zicatela, I do not mean merely, again, you know, the whole problem with our,

00:25:33--> 00:25:37

with our acts of worship is that we focus more on the

00:25:38--> 00:25:50

form outward form then on the internality of it. So, it's not prescribing and saying, reside this thing so many times in the day, I decided to stop for 100 times.

00:25:51--> 00:25:59

Decide Allahu Akbar 100 times. If you're reciting Allahu Akbar one times is it beside Laila. Hi, Lola 100 times, do that

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

110,000 times, but focus on the heart

00:26:04--> 00:26:15

and say that if I'm reciting La Ilaha, Illallah, Muhammad Rasulullah, right? If I'm reciting La Ilaha, Illallah, 100 times, what is it doing to my heart?

00:26:17--> 00:26:26

I'm saying there is no one worthy of worship except Allah. La ilaha illAllah also means La la la la la la.

00:26:30--> 00:26:39

It means there is no one worthy of worship except Allah. It means there is no one who can cause any benefit or harm except Allah.

00:26:40--> 00:26:44

It means there is no one who fulfills our needs except Allah.

00:26:47--> 00:26:53

Allah, Allah means all of these things. It doesn't just mean there's no one worthy of worship and it relates only to worship. No.

00:26:56--> 00:27:02

We worship Allah because Allah subhanaw taala fulfills every need of mine.

00:27:03--> 00:27:08

I worship Allah because I know that nobody can do anything like how will I will afford a level?

00:27:10--> 00:27:25

So now when I'm saying Lyla, hey, Lola, whether they say 200 times as I say it 1000 times over I said, once, I need to focus on my heart and say, what is the condition of my heart? What is it doing to my heart?

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

Right. Take the example of Southern Illinois.

00:27:33--> 00:27:38

They were all sitting there the Michigan of Makkah. And turn Amato Delano was one of them.

00:27:41--> 00:27:49

He was a warrior. He was a professional wrestler. He was a big man very strong. And he was one of their, one of their youth.

00:27:50--> 00:27:52

He was a very strong leader.

00:27:54--> 00:28:03

So they were all sitting there and they were all complaining about Mohammed Salah Salaam, and this new religion that he has brought, and how this new religion is,

00:28:04--> 00:28:06

is getting converts to it.

00:28:07--> 00:28:08

And so on and so forth.

00:28:10--> 00:28:20

Basically, the horatia maka, they were threatened not because of Allah subhanaw taala. They were not threatened because of God. They were taken because they feared

00:28:21--> 00:28:28

a negative impact on their business on the economy. And what was their business, their business was the car.

00:28:30--> 00:28:44

Their business was the hub was the cabin. Because these were traders. They used to trade they used to buy stuff in in the north, in Sham. And they would bring it down to the south and sell it in Yemen.

00:28:45--> 00:29:09

And then they would buy stuff in Yemen. And they would take it north and sell it in Sham. Now why even in Sham because Sham was part of the Roman Byzantine, Eastern Roman Empire. And Yemen was a satellite of the Persian Empire. Now in those days, the seventh century, the Persian Empire and the Roman Empire, were at war with each other. This was an ongoing war centuries long.

00:29:11--> 00:29:15

So these were these were two major superpowers of the time who were

00:29:17--> 00:29:18

at war with each other.

00:29:19--> 00:29:43

Are these Arabs, the people on the hijas the horizon, the others, they were in the middle between these two. And they were in a piece of land which was almost like an like a no man's land. The reason it was a sort of no man's land was because it was, it was really not worth anybody's wild to rule it. It was barren. It was it didn't produce anything.

00:29:44--> 00:29:59

It had a whole bunch of, you know, warring troublesome tribes in it. It was mostly desert. They were no fertile fields and no agriculture, no industry, nothing. So it was not really worth anybody's while to interfere with them. So they left the world

00:30:01--> 00:30:09

Second thing is they that give them an opportunity to become traders. So they used to do this trade, you know, between the eastern that I mentioned this in,

00:30:10--> 00:30:57

in Central College, where he mentioned the, the happiness, the caravans have the courage when they went to the when they went north and south, in, in summer in winter. So a lot of data. So therefore what happened with them was that when they went north, and they brought things now Makkah was like a midway point for them between Sham and Yemen, between the North and South. This was like halfway, it also was their own town, so it was home. And so it was very convenient to brought your stuff from shop, you bought the stuff there. The stuff you bought was really headed for, for a Yemen. And the reason is because these two empires were at war. But you know, everybody needs economies. So it was

00:30:57--> 00:31:24

like the Swiss during the war. That's how Swiss banks rule. And Swiss banks had both money from the Axis powers as well as from the allies. So you had the American billionaires and the German billionaires all of their money was in was in Switzerland, Swiss banks, although America and Germany were fighting. And so also UK, Britain, Britain and Germany were fighting but you know, people had had their money in the Swiss banks, and Switzerland was neutral. All those prisoners are sitting in the middle of,

00:31:25--> 00:32:03

of Europe. And Hitler was conquering country after country but he didn't invade Switzerland, he didn't go to Switzerland, he didn't go there. Because these were the these were the bankers, these were the people who were neutral. And they and both powers they needed a neutral place. Because you didn't have that then you What would you do with your you know, you need to buy and trade and so on what what will you do it would be your own economy would suffer. So same kind of situation, both of ours, you had a war of art, you had things which were being produced in Syria, and who was the market for that? market has to be somebody who has money.

00:32:04--> 00:32:16

So for example, just now the relationship, the economic, I mean, the the political relationship between China and America is not the best. But who is who is the biggest market for Chinese produce America.

00:32:18--> 00:32:29

And no matter what people, you know, no matter what the American government wants to do and say, at and tells American business people don't factor in China, what not, it doesn't work because this economic

00:32:30--> 00:32:33

situation, the economic motive,

00:32:35--> 00:33:11

it supersedes and overrides everything else. So here you had goods being produced in Sham in the Byzantine Empire, they needed a market the market was in the Persian Empire. Obviously, the Byzantines couldn't go and sell to the Persians because, you know, of the war, and vice versa. You had Persian goods producing the Persian Empire, famous Persian carpets and so on, which was the market for that was in Roman villas and Roman palaces. Now, obviously, the Romans couldn't go and buy that. So the Arabs provided this service within courts

00:33:13--> 00:33:53

where they took the goods from one place and took them to the other place and sold them there and vice versa. Now, in that process in between was MK now in Makkah, they had the Kaaba. So the GABA was a center of, of worship was a central pilgrimage. So they also because of the GABA, they collected a whole lot of mean a whole lot of Arabs and others used to come for pilgrimage mostly out of, not from from all parts of Arabia, they would come for pilgrimage to the Kaaba, which produced a very lucrative market right there. So now you had your primary market in Yemen and Syria, but you also created a secondary market for yourself in your own hometown. So while you were traveling you

00:33:53--> 00:34:37

had you had access now you rested you came home to your families, but at the same time your business your money making didn't stop and that continued, so it was the best of both worlds you know, they had and that was a sweet spot, maka. Now in the middle of that comes Mohammed Salah Salam who says that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah and that all the worship of all others is false and it should not be done. So here was his big threat to their business. Their whole thinking was that we have 365 gods in Kava why because we say to everyone who comes in and says you know what, it is nice to be here but you know, I worship this God is no problem bring that God also here. That's

00:34:37--> 00:34:58

how it ended up with 363 and 65. Gods now Who said I hear this man who's saying, remove everything, worship only Allah subhanaw taala what will that do to our business? Because then these people coming here for big rivers, they won't come here anymore, which means that our market, this lovely sweet spot market that we have here will end

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

now that was the

00:35:01--> 00:35:12

According to my understanding of situations, that was the single reason why they opposed the solar system so vehemently, it was not because of theological differences it was because he

00:35:14--> 00:35:27

he presented to them a very existential business threat threat to their businesses. So now, there is this whole commotion going on discussion going on, and

00:35:28--> 00:35:51

talking about Zika and the purpose of Zika. So I said, if you are saying lol I'll allow 100 times, look at the condition of your heart. So here in this whole thing, our Catalano gets up, he stands up, he pulls out his sword, he says, Look, this whole thing is because of that one person. Now I am going to go and settle this once and for all I will go and I will bring you his head.

00:35:52--> 00:36:02

Alas, end of story. I kill Mohammed Salah Salem, with him that religion and everything else dies is me if he's not there. Obviously his followers are not there matters or

00:36:03--> 00:36:04

he lives

00:36:05--> 00:36:06

on the way.

00:36:07--> 00:36:48

He meets submucosal Delano unsalted Assad says as in very well. He said I'm going to finish this whole thing. I'm going to kill Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and finish this whole business. The sad movie Ricardo Delano is an uncle of Amazon seller. And he had already accepted Islam. So he said to set an hour he said you know you all this passion of yours to go and kill wa sallam. He said put that aside for the moment. Go check on your own house. He said your own sister has become Fatima has become Muslim. To say the number of the law now is absolutely insensitive is very angry because he says this is bad because I am now going to go I'm saying I will end the fitna and the fitna is in my

00:36:48--> 00:36:49

own house.

00:36:50--> 00:36:58

So he turns around he goes to his sister's house and as he reaches the door of his sister's house, he hears the delivery of the Quran.

00:37:00--> 00:37:02

He hears about the land who is

00:37:03--> 00:37:14

teaching Fatima delana and her husband to read Quran and he's reciting Quran says that understand outside there and he listens to the recitation of the Quran

00:37:16--> 00:37:21

and he says magic Allah will Basha. He said this is not the word of any human being.

00:37:24--> 00:37:33

Imagine here is a man going with the intention of killing Rasulullah sallallahu is in the house. What can be worse than that? What can be more evil than that?

00:37:34--> 00:37:37

But what happens to him when he hears the column of Allah?

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

One time

00:37:41--> 00:37:42

it enters his heart.

00:37:44--> 00:38:09

He knocks on the door. People see who the mean there from inside they can see who he who is outside. So both the men, the teacher and Fatima Elena's husband, they go inside. Fatima delana is alone. Outside says and Omar said enters. So he said what are you doing? What are you reading? And she has the she has the paper with the with the I had

00:38:10--> 00:38:11

written on this.

00:38:13--> 00:38:26

And somebody said that this is these were the ayat of Surah Taha the opening Ayat of surah follow her. So she has this paper says I was given Give that to me. She said no. He says you are unclean.

00:38:28--> 00:38:28

I will not give it to you.

00:38:29--> 00:38:40

If you want to read this, if you want to hold it in your hand, go take a bath. So seven and imagine here is man going with this intention. Now you forgotten all that. He goes, he takes a bath he comes back

00:38:41--> 00:38:43

then she gives him the paper she says I read

00:38:44--> 00:38:45

he reads this

00:38:46--> 00:38:48

and he's done. He's completely changed

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

one time

00:38:53--> 00:38:56

listening to the kalama holla one single time

00:38:57--> 00:38:58

and it

00:38:59--> 00:39:00

changes

00:39:03--> 00:39:09

from hatred or Mama's or Salaam to the extent where the man pulled a sword

00:39:10--> 00:39:12

to kill us for love selasa

00:39:15--> 00:39:20

to becoming one of the greatest strengths of our solar system

00:39:22--> 00:39:30

he gets up from there he goes to buy to outcome when we sell asylum is that along with the visa Salam is Hamza bin Abu Talib,

00:39:31--> 00:39:37

philosophical and close friend and, and really is, you know, he's his nursing brother.

00:39:38--> 00:39:49

And then there are other people there. Other people they see as an armoire and turnover is getting dissolved. So they say jasola he's here and he's got a sword in his hand. So

00:39:50--> 00:39:59

he's another warrior. He's a brave man. Hamza Mataram, says Don't worry about this. Let me deal with him. If he has come here with a good intention. That's good for him.

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

He has come here with an evil intention then I will kill him with his own sword.

00:40:05--> 00:40:05

He opens the door.

00:40:06--> 00:40:08

Hamza will have the metallic.

00:40:09--> 00:40:11

He catches him like this by his collar

00:40:13--> 00:40:13

and his

00:40:14--> 00:40:15

imagine

00:40:16--> 00:40:21

he catches him like his base color. And he pushes him down. can imagine

00:40:24--> 00:40:26

his knees buckling

00:40:29--> 00:40:32

he pushes him down to his kneeling on the ground. This is why you're here.

00:40:35--> 00:40:37

He said I want to meet Mohammed Salah.

00:40:38--> 00:40:39

There is a lesson I'm just calling

00:40:42--> 00:40:43

our enters.

00:40:45--> 00:40:47

And he says I shall Allah Allah Allah.

Masha Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah,

00:41:06--> 00:41:06

or shall

00:41:10--> 00:41:11

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

We make him so the

00:41:18--> 00:41:24

at that time. When is RJ he did not do one if he didn't know one word.

00:41:26--> 00:41:33

He had never read the Quran. He heard the Quran only once in his sister's house a few minutes before that.

00:41:35--> 00:41:37

This is the meaning of dialogue with Allah.

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

This is the meaning of dialogue with him. What does it do to your heart?

00:41:46--> 00:41:48
