Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa Sallim wa barik ala Nabi ramatuelle houda Mohamed el amin wa Allah Allah He wasafi Jemaine, we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household all his companions We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless every single one of them, and every one of us and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to grant us paradise and Jenna, my brothers and sisters, a great companion of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from Al Madina, munawwara by the name of Sabatini, Seamus, Allah when he was a man whom when Moshe Abner made of the Allah Juan was
sent to Al Madina, munawwara in order to teach the people who had accepted Islam from Medina, the Quran and the teachings of Islam. And in order to answer the questions of those who had questions regarding Islam, from amongst the people of the book, who lived in Medina, and the others, one of those who constantly heard the verses of the Quran being recited by most abnormal made was a man known as tabet ebano case, even though Seamus later to be known as the Allahu and so he says, I used to listen to this beautiful voice, read the Quran in the Arabic language. And this Koran had such a power in it, that it struck my heart. And in a few days, I declared that I was from amongst the
followers of this beautiful Koran. I went to Musab Ebner Omar, and I declared my Shahada the declaration of faith and became a Muslim. So he became a Muslim in the early stages in Madina munawwara just before the hegira as you know, when Musab dibner, ma radi Allahu anhu was sent to Al Madina, munawwara so this man, the day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Abu Bakr Siddiq are the Allahu anhu when they arrived in Madina, munawwara Sabbath ebano case, even though Seamus was the one appointed by the answer, which means the people of Medina to speak to Muhammad salallahu alayhi wasallam address him on their behalf. Because he was very eloquent. He had a nice voice, he
spoke well clear, loud. And at the same time, he drew the attention of the people at Blue KC blue Seamus or the yellow one. So he got up, he welcomed Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and he was in a large group of people who were welcoming Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he addressed him or messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he spoke for a while from amongst what he said or part of what he said was that we will protect you from whatever we protect ourselves and our offspring from and we will grant you whatever we grant ourselves, consider you one of us and so on. And then he asks, What will we have in return? Good question. What will we have in return? This was already confirmed by
Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam previously when they pledged the Aqaba allegiance in the Hajj of the previous two years, but it was repeated in the presence of everyone Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam says, If you do that, in return, you will get paradise one word, Elgin. Elgin meaning you get paradise for serving Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So immediately they they said collectively rabina Rasul Allah Raveena Yara rasulillah We are happy with that Oh, messenger sallallahu wasallam we are happy with that oh messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam notice that this man was very eloquent. And later on, he was made the one who was
a spokesman of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, katiba Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. So when delegations came from outside or people came from different
towns and different villages and so on, to meet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam or even just to have a so called speech contest, which they used to constantly have at that time. You know, they used to have speech contests because they were unlimited most of them, and they used to compete with one another who can speak better, who has better speech, it was at its peak. So when the delegations used to come from afar, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had two people whom he appointed, one was for poetry, and one was for lecturing. The one for lecturing was our our hero that we are speaking about today. therby WPC Mishima, Cerro de la one, and the one who was the poet of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was
Hasani beneath arbitraje Allah one. So when the people came, some of these lectures are the brief ones are recorded in history. How this man spoke how eloquent he was, how he really
always spoke far better than the others who had come therapy tip noticeable Mishima Saviola one. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once found Sabatini Pacey. Mishima was very sad. He was seated on his own, and he was not talking much and he was looking like, you know, a person who was in worrying, deep thought. So Mohammed salatu salam asks him old habits, what is the problem? Now he was a man who was eloquent, he was well known. He had a loud voice, Mashallah, he was the spokesman of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and at the same time Subhana Allah, he had an amazing character. He had concerned for his own deeds and his well being. So he says, oh, messenger sallallahu sallam, I
think I have suffered a great loss. What is the loss that you have suffered? He says, I heard the verses that were revealed to you. And these are verses of Surah lokman where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in Allah Allah.
Allah does not like those who are boastful, self conceited, those who are proud, and so on. That's the meaning of the verse in Surah lokman. So, this man sabotaged, okay, he says, When I heard that verse, I felt that I am the one being addressed and I am at loss. The reason is, I love my dress, I love my conveyance. And I like to look well and I speak well, and I like to be a person who presents himself well. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says author but you are not from amongst those. So he made it quite clear that for a person to be to take pride in their dress, and that's what we would call it in the English language to take pride in that dress. does not make them proud or
boastful or self conceited. No, you dress appropriately no problem for you to have the best vehicle on Earth. No problem for you to have the most luxurious items no problem on condition that it does not turn you away from Allah number one subhanho wa Taala. And it does not make you a person who despises others and rejects the truth, because in another narration Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was asked by his companions when he said the whole gentleman can be Miss Carla hi Betty mean her Dolly Minh kibble. He says, no one will enter Paradise if in their heart There is even a mustard seeds wait worth of pride. So the message the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked by his
companions, that oh Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what about if we like our convenience and our clothing and we take pride in it and so on. He said, that is not what is pride. Pride is when you reject the truth, and you despise people. So you despise people, this one is nothing that one is nothing, you know, I am the only one that is pride. And when the truth comes to you, and you reject it, that is also pride. This is the description of pride in Islam, but to be wearing good clothing to have a good scent, good perfume, good motor vehicle. And to have you know, as we would say, to take a little bit of pride in your clothing, in the English language when we use that it
does not have a bad meaning. Like we say, We are proud to be Muslim. It does not mean we are arrogant to be Muslim. No, it actually means we are happy to be Muslim. But that's the English language. The words do not actually mean the same thing in the English language and the Arabic language. So this man was so happy thereafter. But there was another instance where he stopped mixing. And he did not come to the to the gathering of Mohammed salatu salam as much as he did again. So he used to take things quite personally. therby Tip No, Casey Mishima, Serbia lavon. So again, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam when he noticed this man is absent. He only comes for salah and he
goes away. So he sent someone he said, Will anyone find out what's wrong with this man Sabatini case? He misses a lot, the loved one. So one of the companions says, I will find out. So he went, and he saw a 30 minute case sitting very sad in his own home. He asked him a bit, what's the problem? Again, he says, I've suffered a great loss. I think all my deeds that I've done, the good deeds have been wasted. So he was asked, how can you good deeds have been wasted? So he said I heard a verse being revealed the verses of Surah 200.
where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, levina Amanullah todo swatter como
Tony caja de ba ba
it says oh you who believe Do not you raise
Your voice above the voice of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and do not address him like you would be addressing one another. The messenger deserves respect sallallahu alayhi wasallam you address him with utmost respect, when he speaks remain silent, you do not raise your voice above his, lest your deeds shall be wasted, and you won't even know which means that if you do this, perhaps your deeds might be lost, and they might turn against you, all your good deeds will be wiped out without you knowing because of the evil you've done. So therby hypnotising, Mishima says, you know, I'm a man with a loud voice, I speak a lot, and I'm always very high in volume, and I'm worried This is about
me. So he went back to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and told Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, this is what
Seamus has said. So then, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam calls for 30 minute case. And then when he asked him once again, and he repeated what his concern was, he says, Oh, tabet, wouldn't you like to be a person who lives a good life? And who is martyred in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And who enters paradise? So he said, Yes, indeed, I would like that. He says, In sha Allah, you have that. So this was a prophecy of Mohammed salatu salam, to say that this man, he will lead a life a good life, and at the same time, he will be martyred. And at the same time, he will be from amongst those who has earned paradise or who will be given Paradise by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is
why therby Tip No case ignoramus, although he was not one of the 10, who was conferred paradise in the one gathering of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam but he was from amongst a large group of others who are also told that you are from Paradise. One of them was Tabby, dibner, Casey Mishima. sarathi. Allah and the Ansari from Madina, munawwara, the one who was very eloquent and spoke very well. So this was his concern.
Now, it's amazing how this man
one day, and this is something we have to learn from. We have something we have a great lesson from one day his wife comes to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, one of his wives, and says, Oh messenger, sallAllahu Sallam forbid, is a good man, I'm married to him. I am not complaining about his character or his religion. But I do not want to remain married to him. Subhana Allah, did you hear this? I don't want to remain married to him. Whatever the reason was, I don't want to remain now. What happened is, there was a trial to see how best this marriage could work. But it arrived such at a at a point where the men wanted to remain married, but the woman did not want. She said, Look, I'm
not complaining about the men, but I don't want to be his wife anymore. So do you know what happened?
Imagine what would the messenger peace be upon him do after trying to convince her and after trying to see what the matter was? And still we are at a stagnant point where we are achieving nothing she still wants out. That's what it was. Literally, she wants out of the marriage. What's your reason? I have no reason. I just want out Subhan Allah.
So Mohammed sallallahu Sallam told her and this is something we all have to learn a lesson from. He says, okay, he gave you an orchard. When he married you. Are you ready to give the orchard back? The orchard was something big. She said yes, I'm ready to give it back. So he called her babe No, Casey Mishima. She says, Take the orchard and give her one Ballack devotion Subhana Allah Subhana Allah, and they lived happily in the sense that no bitterness, not nothing to say, Oh, you know, this is what happened. Nobody actually complained and winged. In fact, the laws of what we know as hula, were made clear by this Hadith, which is in Sahih al Bukhari, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to
grant us a lesson. So it was debated in the case of Mishima as the same man What a powerful man and his wife was granted what she wanted, she had to give back the mower, and she got the divorce in return. So there are three main ways in fact four ways that a woman is divorced in Islam. The first is when a divorce is issued by the man. The second is when she has valid reason. And she goes to a court shutter, a court or a panel of scholars who has been
appointed to nullify marriages and she has the reason they will look into it, they will address the man they will see if they can solve the problem. If they cannot, they will award her a divorce, whether he likes it or not. That's in Islam. A lot of people don't know this. So she can actually go out and ask for a divorce and she will get it because you cannot oppress a woman if you are oppressing her. She has the right to seek out and to get a divorce without your interference. And the third way of doing it is if she has no reason whatsoever, she can actually return what you've given her. And this would only be if you agree if a man agrees to take back
The Maha that was given and to issue in return what is known as a divorce of hula, hula meaning you are actually withdrawing now, after you have been given back what you gave her in Mahara. And for this reason there are some people who have very high Maha, you know, what is the gift that you the bride, the groom gives the bride, some communities have a very high finger that they asked for. And then they say, you know what, you only give it to her if you divorce her. May Allah grant us ease. That's not the right way of doing things my brothers and sisters, and it's not even correct to have high dowries. In Islam, the simplicity is in the dowry, that is token, not something that is big and
figures, although it's permissible to ask for whatever you want, but Subhan Allah, if there is something simple done with the correct intentions, inshallah there is greater Baraka in that particular marriage. So, this was the tip notice ignition, as I've mentioned three ways the fourth way, if a person happens to accuse his wife of adultery in the presence of a court, and in the presence of witnesses and swears the old that is a specific type of an old and they went through what is known as Leann, or mula Anna, it is some specific way of accusing a spouse, in the presence of certain number of people and so on. And a certain number of times, in that case, the divorce
automatically takes place, and the two can no longer be together because it's something serious and big. But remember, it would happen if this accusation occurs in the presence of the those who are appointed to listen to that type of accusation. Still, we are prohibited from accusing one another of having slept with this one and did this with that one. These are grave statements that we should abstain from stay away from. This is something we learn or the issue of hula, we learn it from therby technopath, Sydney, Seamus Allen sorry about the Allahu and then he was a man who took part in most of the battles besides bedroom. He says almost all the battles and the visits of Mohammed
salatu salam after badam he took part in a lot of these and what happened with this man is he passed away in Yama. Yama at the time of Abu Bakr, Siddiq, Allah and when they went to fight Musa Lama, they the liar who was saying that he is the messenger and so on. And this man, how he fought was amazing. He brought back memories of the time of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and he was martyred in the battle together with Salim Mola a bit about the Allahu Allah. So when he was martyred, something unique happened. This is one of the stories that I need to make mention of here because it is something that the books have mentioned and the scholars have said it is a true story.
When he was martyred The following day, he came in the dream of one of the new Muslims. He came in the dream of one of the companions or one of the new Muslims. And in the dream, he tells this men that when I died when I was martyred yesterday, my armor was taken by a certain man and he hid it in a certain place. You need to get that inform Harley Davidson when he was the leader of the army, and you need to get that armor number one number two is I owe this person and this person some money. When you go back to Medina, you need to make sure that this amount is paid from what is mine. So the man woke up and he was surprised and Subhanallah It is reported that when he went to holiday vanilla
Lee or the Allahu anhu telling him I saw a dream last night and therby Tip No case of Mishima who was martyred yesterday told me to tell you that this is what it is. Currently the leader of the Allahu anhu said let's go and check. So they sent some men they checked and they saw the armor exactly where it was described in the dream number one. Number two is when they got back to Madina munawwara they met with Abu Bakr Siddiq rhodiola Han, and they confirmed with the people who were owed money according to the dream and it turned out to be exactly correct May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson from this. These are the saints these are the true heroes of the deen Habib,
notice even Oshima, sarathi Allah And may Allah bless him and bless us all.
The second hero we have this evening so pan Allah is a powerful person.
A powerful person
who was known as the Roman sohaib the Roman, but he was not from Rome. Subhan Allah so why did they call him the Roman so Hi baby no sinner Nibbana Malika Rumi, Allah and that was his name. So hey, Ebony Sinan Ebony Malik. A Rumi. Rumi means the Roman but he was nowhere from Rome. Number one. He looked very Caucasian. He had red skin and ginger hair Subhana Allah. He was a little boy. His father was the chief appointed by the Persian
emperess in a place in Iraq known as a Bula. So his father was the chief. And one day the Roman army came in to attack. Now there were wars that took place between the Romans and the Persians. That's even mentioned in the Quran, the beginning of surah. To room. So what happened is when this war took place, that the Romans conquered the area where sohaib immunosenescence dad who was known as sin, and Ebony Malik, was the chief of they conquered it, and they took a lot of the property and they took the wealth and they got hold of the children and some of the women and they went away with them. They took them as slaves. And they took this youngster who was a very good looking boy,
back with them, to where they were the Roman Empire, Subhan Allah, so he went back to Rome with them, or somewhere under their rule.
So this youngster, he became a slave and he was sold from one to another, someone offered a higher price they paid they were given him, and he went, he served them for a while, and he went to another and the third, and it is reported, that means sadan illa said he went from one to another Subhan Allah. So now what happened with him is, he always knew that I come from the Arabs, I'm an Arab, he was an ad of Bill, Adam Subhana Allah.
And he always knew one day, I'm going to somehow get back to my place. He always knew it in his heart, but he worked hard, dedicated, and the people loved him because he was very good child that they love to look at. And at the same time, he was of good character, and good manners because he was the son of a leader. So panela I hope and I pray the children of our leaders also can be exemplary May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant them good qualities and us all and our children as well. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant them qualities of leadership such that when they interact with people, they can immediately realize that this person has been groomed correctly. I mean, I
mean, and made that happen for us as well. Sometimes we as adults, really the way we speak to people and the way we carry ourselves. We need a lot of Pennell beating my brothers and sisters May Allah grant that to us in May he make us exemplary people. So, so Haven is seen and says one day, as I was cleaning, I used to see and I used to watch how filthy and dirty the Romans were, I used to see how they used to do things. And I used to look at it and say, Oh, these people, they are so filthy in their habits. And at the same time, they have so much of deception even amongst them, that it is something that he was beginning to become fed up of. And one day he heard one of the older
leaders of the church, one of the older leaders of the church, telling another person that you know what, in Makkah, it's about time, that there is going to be a messenger who is going to declare that he is completing the message of Jesus May peace be upon him. He Salah is Salatu was Salam. And he will come to confirm whatever is in the Bible and the Torah. And he is going to bring forth goodness and remove his people from darkness to light. So this youngster heard it and he says, Oh, I'm an Arab meaning to himself. He said, I'm an Arab. I come from there. I will go back there one day, and I want to meet this man. And I want to see because now as much as he loves to go back to the Arabian
Peninsula, this thing made him even more keen to go back. So it is reported that one day, either he ran away. And he, you know, went on his own meaning with a caravan or he was sold to certain people who came from Makkah. So one of the two, the story is not very clear, but a lot of the narrations make mention of how he ran away, he actually went away one day, he was a free boy anyway. So when he went, he ended up in Macedon, mocha Rama at the hands of Abdullah Abdullah Jaden. Now Abdullah Majid, and we've heard this name a lot. He was a person who, at the period of ignorance, he found the great treasure. And he asked one of the leaders or one of the wise people, what should I do with
the treasure that I found? You know, should I bury it? What should I do so many different options he had. So the wise man tells him, you know what the best thing is, be kind to the people and give charity to the people. If you give charity, you will have a long life. Now what is the meaning of if you give charity, you will have a long life. What it meant at that time was if you give a charity, people will remember you after you've died, so it will have helped you a lot. They'll say, oh, that man Rahmatullah Allah, they'll give you five or $10 one time, so they remember your name, you gave a lot of charity. So Abdullah has an agenda and decided to start freeing slaves. He would give people
big gifts, huge gifts that they could not believe that this has come. Where did it come from? Abdullah hypno Jan Subhana. Allah, amazing. And even when there was a conference to be held when one of the men was oppressed from abroad, it was held at the house of Abdullah hypno. Japan, known as helpful football. It was something unique. It was a pledge that they had agreed in to actually assist those who are oppressed.
Who came from abroad there was a man who arrived in Makkah. And he said, the people of Croatia have stolen my wealth. It was Abdullayev Naja Dan who got up to help him because he was a very wealthy man. So he was known basically as the wealthy and the generous at that time. So it is reported that this man So hey, roomie, as a young boy, he fell into the hands of Abdullah and Richard and somehow, and at some stage, he was freed by Abdullah hypnagogia, Dan, and he started to do some business. But he was under the protection of Abdullah amnesia Dan, because he was not known. The people used to call him Roman because he could not really speak Arabic, because he grew up in Rome. And at the same
time, when he started speaking the Arabic language, he had a very distinct foreign accent. You know, I don't want to imitate or mimic it here right now. But you can imagine people come from far when they want to speak even when they read the Quran, you can tell this person is trying very hard, but it's not so easy on the tongue. The tongue is a bit hard so to speak. May Allah make it easy for us all to read the Quran. I mean, so my brothers and sisters, they knew they used to call him the Roman so a Roman it's reported that his name was not even sohaib initially, but the Romans called him slave. So he was known as sleep. So he started doing business in one day, he heard people talking
about Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, hey, there's a messenger. And he's coming. This is what he's saying. He was so excited because that's what he was waiting for, even though he became a wealthy person, but he was never ever oblivious of the fact that there is going to be a messenger coming in Makkah according to what I was told when I was in Rome. Subhana Allah. So what happened is, he tipped out, he asked the question, Where is Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam? So someone told him watch out Be careful, don't ask loudly because you're going to be harmed by peroration as it is you've got no relatives here, you are a foreigner and a stranger. You were a slave. Now then the other day. So
he says but where is he says he will be found in the house of Allah camino, I will come rhodiola one.
What a man subhana wa alaikum even though bill Viola one. So at night, he tiptoed to the house of an outcome economic outcome and guess who he finds at the door? A Mardi Gras Viola one. So he looks at Amar and they knew each other. He says Amar, what are you doing at this door? Amar says What are you doing at this door? Wow, Mashallah. This happened quite often at the time of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam where people were too scared to tell each other initially what they wanted, but later on it came out. So Amar says what would what are you doing here? So So hey, boo boo Sinan even though Malika Rumi, Ravi Allah and he says, You know what? I want to listen to this man. See what he has to
say? American? Yes, it says Yes, me too. Probably Allahumma melas peace and blessings be upon them. So they knocked on the door. And believe me, the narrations make mention of how
the wooden door that was opened, they took one step into the door, and that was to change their entire lives. So sometimes my brothers and sisters, one small step towards Allah will change your whole life. This is why do not underestimate the small steps that are taken in life. Perhaps that might be the step that will grant you paradise. My brothers and sisters do not underestimate a little change in you, even if it is one millimeter of a change. Perhaps that might be your journey to gender. May Allah subhanho wa Taala soften our hearts and May He grant us that change. So my brothers and sisters, they walked through this, that door, a small wooden door and they sat in the
company of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam for a few minutes listening to the Quran and what he had to say they declared their Shahada, both of them are malignancy. So hey boo Sinan Rumi, and this man was attacked, just like the others. He was harmed because he was a foreigner. There was no one to protect him so much. So they did not allow him to go for his raw. And yet, they told him you were a man who came to us when you came to us, you were poor, you had nothing. Now you started doing business and you've got gold and silver and you become wealthy and look at what you're doing to us. You've become a traitor. You don't even appreciate that we are the ones who made you reach, you
know, we put you on the map basically. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us look at the statements of courage. fuggle and virtue comes from Allah, not from me or from you. So this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us through the story of Sahaba Vanessa Nana Rumi, when Quraysh told him you became rich because of us. He did not leave Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam they punished him they abused him verbally, physically. Even economically. They tried to harm him to usurp his wealth, and they blocked him making the Hydra so much so that so hey boo boo Sinan even though Malika Rumi Ravi Allahu anhu says, When Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was leaving for the hegira with Abu Bakr Siddiq of
the Allahu anhu I was supposed to be the third person. I want it to be the third person but he blocked me they stopped me I couldn't it just didn't happen.
So he decided now Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has left and most of the people have gone for the Hydra. I am one
Those who remain behind I need to do something. So Quraysh had surrounded his house as well and send people to watch him 24 seven literally throughout the day and night. So he decided, you know what, let me pretend like I have loose bowels, Allahu Akbar. He ran out you see the loo was not like what we have today. We call it on sweet, you know, the room is here and the loo is right in the room know, at that time that the blues were outside the house up to now in some rural areas across the across the globe, you find that the loo or the birthing facility is somewhere further away. So at that time, it was the same. So So hey, boo Sinan even though Malika Rumi wrote the law and he
decided to come out and use the loo. And he took so long. So the those who are watching him, they watched him from afar. And they saw no this man is actually he's, he's in the loop. He went back to his room. And a little while later, he came back. They watched him again. He went back a little while later, he came back. So they said, Wow, our gods the idols are punishing this man. Look, his stomach is now you know, calling the shots basically. May Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us all good bellies. I mean,
so so so how to love this man went and he came back. He went and he came back until these people said, No, he's really suffering a spate of diarrhea perhaps. And what happened is they decided, Okay, let's go and sleep as they slept. He went away. He made these IJA he was gone. But what happened? They got up a few hours later, sometime later, and they noticed the man has absconded. So immediately, they decided, let's jump on to the quickest of horses We have and catch up with him. Because he has a lot of gold and silver and he has so much of wealth. This man was rich. So they ran after him or they rushed after him. And he had got to the top of a certain mount a slightly high
area, and he saw them and so they made an he made an announcement to them. He says, Yeah, mushara Qureshi. Oh, people have courage. You are running after me. You know that I am a very good marksman, and I've got so many Spears here. Every one of you who's trying to come here with one spear. One of you will go so you You'd better watch because I'm at a high place as you come close. I'm warning you. So anyway, they kept they they spoke to him. And they said they started calling for help to say you know what we need backup here is one man who's wanted here and we want backup. We need to take him back to Makkah. So he says
Do you know what? What is it that I can do that? You let me go I don't want anything. They said no, you're a man. You were you were very poor when you came. Where is all the wealth you made? He says okay, I can leave Makkah. Just as I entered Mecca, listen to this. When he came he had nothing he says I'm prepared to leave with nothing. I've hidden my wealth somewhere. I will tell you where it is. You go and get it. It's all yours and leave me to go to Medina. Would you agree? They said yes. Yes. Yes we agree straight to it. You know they say you put money anyone takes it. There's a figure there's a price. You know if someone says Will you do this? I pay you five ringgit say no 50 ringgit
