Bismillahirrahmanirrahim Alhamdulillah Europeana Levine

00:00:05--> 00:00:09

ashrafi lambier evil mousseline Nabina. Habib,

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

Muhammad, Abdullah, Allahu Allah, Allah He was happy he have done with asleep.

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

We begin by praising Allah Subhana mozzarella, who is no doubt our Creator, sustain and nourish, protect and cure. We asked him gela Juarez to Chava his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam his family members, his companions and all those who trade up on his back with utmost sincerity until the day of their

00:00:44--> 00:01:13

slaves have a long Oh Children of Adam, first and foremost, I advise myself and then all of you all present here to adopt a life of taqwa. And that is to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala. And to be conscious of him, Isaiah JAL, during every single second of our lives, if we wish to attain success in this world, as well as the hereafter May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us all from the people of taqwa, say, I mean, I mean May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from the victorious ones I mean,

00:01:15--> 00:01:17

my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam.

00:01:19--> 00:02:06

It was just a couple of weeks back. We were anticipating the month of Ramadan, the blessed month of Ramadan, we were about to welcome the month of Ramadan. We were so excited that Al Hamdulillah we attained the month of Ramadan, mal das panna horchata make us all from the ones who attained His forgiveness, attained his Rama during that special and blessed month and here we are now almost two weeks after the month of Ramadan. It does take a few moments to evaluate ourselves because when you take a look back at the month of Ramadan Mashallah The masajid were overflowing with people. The masajid were overflowing with people for Serato vegetto harasser Madre Berisha, and even after

00:02:06--> 00:02:21

salata, Russia, we used to take it upon ourselves and we used to make it to the masjid for an optional prayer. salata, taraweeh we used to spend so much of time in the massage in 2008, like I used to pray behind the map

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

every single day,

00:02:25--> 00:03:07

during the month of Ramadan, this has to continue, not just Ravi, I'm talking about the other aspects, you know, coming to the masjid making it for the manager map. All of this has to continue even after Ramadan. Because you and I, we are not about Ramadan. We don't worship Ramadan. We are not slaves of Ramadan. We are not be Ramadan. We are the slaves of the master of the lord of the words who is the owner of the month of Ramadan Ally's a virgin, and he is a virgin is not only present during the month of Ramadan, he is present all the time. He is present 20 473 165 days throughout the year. So we need to be able to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala in a similar manner

00:03:07--> 00:03:30

and after all, that is one of the main objectives of the month of Ramadan. It is to train us to prep us for the remainder of the year. We go through one month of a spiritual training where the devils are locked up they all shackled. Things are made easier for us. And we involve ourselves in various AI that to prepare ourselves for the remaining 11 months.

00:03:31--> 00:03:35

It is a month of taqwa it is a month of the Koran.

00:03:37--> 00:03:53

The month of Ramadan, has a beautiful relationship with the words of our beloved maker. It is known as the month of the Quran. Amica states in the novel for an answer to dakara Shan Ramadan and la de

00:03:55--> 00:03:57

la FEA. for

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

the month of Ramadan, Allah de peninsula

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

It was during the month of Ramadan was revealed. So we we built a good relationship with the Quran. We used to spend so much of time reading the words of our beloved maker. This has to continue even after Ramadan, and we need to enhance it. Because sometimes some of us our focus in terms of reading the Koran is certain in the sense we read like parents, our focus is to make excessive hotma of the Koran to complete the Quran. Whilst in reality it's not about how much we read of the Koran, but it's about how we read the Quran. It's not about how much we read the Quran, it's about how we read them.

00:04:50--> 00:04:53

Because that is the purpose behind leading the foreign

00:04:54--> 00:04:56

America states in the novel for an

00:04:57--> 00:04:58

kitaen boom

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

Leah

00:05:15--> 00:05:24

kitaen and Zelda who la a book that we have revealed unto you MOBA, full of blessings. Now for what purpose

00:05:35--> 00:05:41

is to ponder and reflect on its versus BMW IoT.

00:05:44--> 00:05:57

And so the ones so and so that the ones who have intellect, they may receive reminders through the new noble Koran. In another place Allah subhanho wa Taala he talks about the believers, but as you say,

00:05:58--> 00:05:59

in

00:06:08--> 00:06:09

either

00:06:17--> 00:06:23

the believers they are those when they are reminded of Allah subhana wa Jalla wa he loves

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

the hearts tremble

00:06:28--> 00:06:31

in me know,

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

boo, boo, boo,

00:06:49--> 00:06:50

tiling

00:06:51--> 00:07:04

and when the worst is when the eye ads are read to them with affiliate ID is that even the man starts to so the image starts to rise

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

in

00:07:43--> 00:07:56

lot what he does, when they are reminded of a law their hearts tremble, what is actually a tiling yemaya and when the verses are read to them, that the man starts to so the man starts to rise

00:07:58--> 00:08:13

and upon the Lord they have placed their trust me Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from the ones who have placed fear firm to Hakuna Matata because after all, he is the best disposal of our affairs has been a lot when a man will kill now man Buddha whenever

00:08:16--> 00:08:32

and then Allah subhanho wa Taala in another place. He admonitions the ones who don't make the de bonavia made it very clear that the whole objective of reading the Quran is to make the double what is the double the double is to ponder on the words of our powerful maker is to ponder

00:08:33--> 00:08:48

so it's not about reading like a parrot is not about reading the Quran from cover to cover and make it eat making excessive hokhmah of the Koran that is not the purpose. The purpose is to read and make the Double of the time.

00:08:49--> 00:08:57

In another place Allah subhanho wa Taala to be to be more specific and sort of Mohammed alized and more admonishes those who don't make the double.

00:09:12--> 00:09:23

Do they don't make more of the Quran. Allah Allah kulu benaco Fallujah all have they got locks on their hands Allahu Akbar, Allah azza wa jal did not say Allah is

00:09:26--> 00:09:32

an affiliate do not. Do not read the Quran. Do not hear the Koran name rather than use the word to double

00:09:34--> 00:09:38

down on condom. Do they don't make the Double of the Koran?

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

Or have they bought blocks on their hearts, media respected elders and brothers in Islam Oh slaver for law. If you find it difficult to make a demo on the arm, maybe if you're feeling sleepy when someone reads the forearm, if you're nodding away, or perhaps if you don't feel that tremble if you don't feel goosebumps piling on yourself.

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

If you don't sense that shutter running down your spine, when you hear about the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala when you hear about the ayah talking about the

00:10:09--> 00:10:26

philosophy behind Medina, then it is a very sad fact. And you have to know that your heart is hardening and that you have to work on your heart. Because look at the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala if they cannot ponder Amala harden their hearts have got locks on the middle of subhana wa tada save us all and protect us. I mean,

00:10:28--> 00:10:43

so we need to work on the more our hearts become pure, the more our hearts become soft, that's when we will be able to relate with the Koran. That's when the words of our maker will have an effect on us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our hearts towards the noble and me

00:10:44--> 00:11:26

and this media respected elders and brothers in Islam is a very great tsunami from the Sooners of our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who's a particularly a man, or the alarm on Hina lens. One night, I prayed with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what an opportunity. I envy for the for the long line to pray with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Just imagine, whenever we go to the Hadith, some of us at times we just skim over the narration, even the stories of the forum I say this often try to put yourselves in the shoes of that particular Sahabi try to put yourselves in the story. That's when you'll be able to you know, go through the imagery of the

00:11:26--> 00:11:38

story. You know you'll be able to relate to that particular incident in a very beautiful man. So they have not yet man to the alarm line. He posted once one night I prayed with Russell I said a lot while ago it was

00:11:39--> 00:12:01

sort of like I said a long while earlier was lm deictic b the narration goes along the lines of these words. And he starts off Serato bahara Just imagine to play behind those who lie said a lot while he was selling a special night and to hear us for a long while you it was a number aside law. My mother my father and myself be ransom for him said a long while ago.

00:12:03--> 00:12:04

He starts off Sudoku Baccarat.

00:12:06--> 00:12:07

Okay. He ends

00:12:09--> 00:12:20

he goes on to Surah Nisa, he completes Surah Nisa. And then he goes on to Surah Allah imraan and then he completes he completed surah Allah imraan Allaah.

00:12:21--> 00:12:33

Three, not small So, you're not talking about sort of sort of the last Filipinas Surah Baqarah Nisa imraan, almost around five and a half,

00:12:34--> 00:12:40

five and a half, just five and a half ages and just realize that a lot while he is reading this and Sala

00:12:43--> 00:12:44

you might wonder

00:12:45--> 00:13:24

that I may have made a mistake in terms of the order white Islam read Surah Nisa and then Allah imraan that's how it is in the narration. As soon as I submitted savara Nisa, and then Allah imraan and scholars like I'll call the out and I'll call the Abu Bakar kailani Rahim Allah they state that the order the chronological order that is in the Koran is something that the Muslims after us realize that a long while ago it was element which they had and came about with the sort of lies that a long while he was Selim didn't literally stick to the order that we have with us in the Koran. And that is why he said Allahu Allahu Allah seldom read Sumatra Nyssa and then Allah abroad.

00:13:24--> 00:13:29

So from this the scholars Allah state, that it is permissible inshallah if you wish to change the order and

00:13:30--> 00:14:15

so he said a lot more about the point that I wish to highlight is that he said a lot while in the Torah, so that is a surah Allah abroad and this hobby rhodiola one goes on to say that whenever he said a long while, earlier Salim came by and I have Rama, he used to seek the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Whenever he led an ayah of Rama he used to seek the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Whenever he read an eye of Ida mentioning the tormance, the Lord of the roads of Allah subhanho wa Taala used to seek the protection of Allah Subhana Medina, and whenever he said a lot widely, but it was seldom used to come across an ayah that makes Tao Deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:14:15--> 00:14:26

an ayah that exalts and glorifies the lives of a gel, he said, it was a lamb used to glorify and exalt our maker Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now this is the point. He

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

did not just read like a parrot.

00:14:31--> 00:14:43

Allah forbid sometimes we have certain individuals their whole objective is to read as many answers as possible in Serato tarawih to fly Allah. This is not from the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, look at the way he said Allah while

00:14:44--> 00:14:46

he should relate with every single ayah

00:14:47--> 00:14:50

I have Rama he seeks the mercy of Allah subhana wa jal.

00:14:51--> 00:15:00

He seeks the protection of Allah subhanho wa Taala I have grandia and greatness he exalts and glorifies Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is making the debate

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

Another night

00:15:02--> 00:15:03

he said a long while he

00:15:05--> 00:15:12

spent the whole night Just imagine the whole night repeating one idea

00:15:14--> 00:15:16

into it

00:15:36--> 00:15:37

he kept repeating this idea

00:15:54--> 00:16:08

if you punish them into the boom for in the home by bad, they're useless or ill fit level if you forgive them for disease with hockey, then you are the most glorious the most wise one

00:16:10--> 00:16:23

he said a long while he kept repeating this ayah until they break into it boom for in the homeopathic film for disease with Hakeem into it to whom for whom I look

00:16:24--> 00:16:49

for in Mecca analyzes with Hakeem what excuse Do we have to even say that we don't know the Quran? Chief I have not memorized the Quran so I can't stand up in tiamo Lane. Remember Campbell lane is not something for only for the month of Ramadan, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam every single night used to pray a Troika of demolay v3 rocket which he said a lot while he read he said, we only do it in Ramadan.

00:16:51--> 00:16:53

And one was

00:16:54--> 00:17:00

one was into the room for example, my bad luck will interfere in the cancer. As he said, Hakeem.

00:17:01--> 00:17:29

He kept repeating this verse kept repeating this verse kept repeating this verse. And when he said a long while ago, and he was telling us to pray, you could hear the sound of bubbling coming from his chest, like a cauldron of public pot. You know, when something is boiling, you hear that the bubbles that sound used to emit from the chest or the profits that allow you to send them because he used to become so emotional when reading the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The law

00:17:30--> 00:17:46

This is the sooner that we need to follow. The times we read, for example, when Friday comes about we all Mashallah we read Sudoku. But we keep turning the page to see when the surah is going to end. We're not enjoying the recitation, we're not building that relationship. And I say this often.

00:17:47--> 00:18:24

We live in a very modern era. We don't have any excuse whatsoever. No excuse. The people of the past, they could say, you know, we didn't have access to scholars, it was very difficult to access scholars, it was difficult to understand them. And maybe when scholars used to come from abroad, we couldn't understand their language. Maybe additives to come they used to speak in Arabic, we couldn't understand their language. We couldn't read the books, books were not translated. Today martial law that has been made so much of effort. Many of the books have been translated, you go to the publishers, you get all the books, Mashallah many of the books have been translated, you want to

00:18:24--> 00:18:54

read the sale you wanted to get here. Now, you don't have to think oh, I need to read the Arabic version of it now, Mashallah, you have the English translation of it. And so if you feel like knowing about the Tafseer of Surah Fatiha, it's the initiative that we have to take, all you have to do is without your mobile phone, the same mobile phone that you take out a number of times during the day to check your newsfeed on Facebook, on Twitter, on Instagram, and whatnot. You just have to take that same mobile phone, go to YouTube. And instead of checking on other videos, all you have to do is Google the zero swarajya

00:18:56--> 00:19:25

is you get a number of videos and I'm not endorsing all the videos there. Choose your scholar wisely. Choose your scholar wisely, a scholar that you trust, a scholar that you know has spent time seeking knowledge from authentic and verified sources. Choose that scholar, listen to the discourses of that scholar, listen to the lessons. I mean, obviously it's the internet, you get all kinds of content there, I'm not endorsing anything there. You choose your scholar, choose the content, and Mashallah you can listen, you can derive a lot of benefit out of it.

00:19:26--> 00:19:35

What's stopping us? And don't you think that we will be questioned about this other day of the AMA, we have so many tools at our disposal, and we're not using it for

00:19:36--> 00:19:41

you know, in a very productive day. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us all to do so. I mean,

00:19:42--> 00:19:51

so many respected elders and brothers in Islam. Let us enhance this relationship that we have with the words of our powerful maker, because the more we seek knowledge,

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

as many scholars state Islam is a knowledge based Religion The more you seek knowledge, the more you're going to enjoy. The more you study about Salah the more you study about

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

By when you read the Quran when you are in Salah you will relate to all of this, you will relate to all of this and this is not only for the month of Ramadan Remember, it is not only for the month of Ramadan some of us we take the Koran out dusted for the month of Ramadan and then once the month of Ramadan is over the Quran goes back to that shelf.

00:20:18--> 00:20:32

So why did you it was he advised us to have at least read the Quran I think if I'm not mistaken was also the last one. He advised him at least read the Quran in the sense to complete the Quran once a month, at least once a month.

00:20:34--> 00:21:04

And during Ramadan he said a lot while he while he was alive you needed much more jabril Alicia was around. He used to come down during the month of Ramadan and present the poor and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the year that he said a long while evaluation and passed away. That was represented twice, twice. Allahu Akbar. This indicates that we are supposed to spend much more time during the month of Ramadan but even outside the month of Ramadan, we need to spend time with the Quran.

00:21:05--> 00:21:07

Let me give you all a story.

00:21:08--> 00:21:09

Not a bedtime story.

00:21:11--> 00:21:24

A story about a very good individual. His name was Sophia and even isai the natholi Rahim Allah a great legend, a great Mr. batavi and this incident is mentioned in the books of history.

00:21:26--> 00:22:01

This Emma just like Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to spend or rather he spent one night contemplating on one worse there is a report of Sofia Anna sorry, Rahim Allah where after generally, he used to play soccer. With the widow that he had for soccer Asia, this was his norm. The sense he used to be up during the night seeking knowledge imparting knowledge in prayer, reading the Quran. There was one night he spent the whole night in Salah. Reading just one Surah Surah

00:22:03--> 00:22:05

Al hankou canto

00:22:08--> 00:22:11

Kerala solfatara una

00:22:18--> 00:22:19

una

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

Jackie

00:22:43--> 00:23:08

how many of us have memorized this surah Mashallah. Just one surah he made the double he kept repeating the soul and how to take care for holding up this dunya piling up this dunya has kept you busy. I'll Hakata castle and it will keep you busy. In a sense if you keep yourself busy with it at the zoo, until you visit your graves Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us on kindness.

00:23:10--> 00:23:16

You will come to know but it will be too late. So fertile moon definitely you will come to know later on.

00:23:19--> 00:23:26

In History read the surah he repeated it repeated it so many times during that one night Sophia Anatolia, Rahim Allah.

00:23:27--> 00:23:36

He was an individual, many respected elders and brothers in Islam. He was known as a very pious individual, a righteous individual full of warra taco.

00:23:38--> 00:23:41

Righteousness a great amount a legend Allahu Akbar.

00:23:43--> 00:23:44

He lived during the role

00:23:45--> 00:23:59

of Abu Jafar Almanzo who was the second Caliph of the Philippine embassy, the Embassy of Caliphate the second Caliph Abu Jaffa, so he lived during his era this individual this Calif

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

before

00:24:03--> 00:24:20

Sofia Anatolia, Rahim Allah this Calif he called Imam Abu hanifa, what was called one day and he told the great Imam, Imam Abu hanifa. I want you to take over the Office of being a coffee he wanted him to make he wanted to make him the chief judge for the state.

00:24:21--> 00:24:45

In Abu hanifa Rahim Allah, he refused. He said, I'm not suitable for the job. And I don't want the job. This anger the ruler, and he said, You must take the job. You must take the job. The man said I don't want the job. Because I feel that I'm not suitable for the job and I don't want the job. The ruler said I insist you must take the job. He said you don't want the job.

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

And he said once again, I am not fit for the job. Then the ruler looked at him and said You are a liar. You're lying. You are fit for the job but you are lying. Then the man very calmly said well if I'm a liar

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

Then that makes my statement even more correct. I'm not fit for the job. Because I'm a liar. I'm not fit for the job. This anger the the ruler, and he immediately ordered that the Imam be imprisoned. The Imam was imprisoned. The Imam was even tortured according to certain reports and the Imam Rahim Allah He died in prison due to the imprisonment of this room

00:25:22--> 00:25:32

named Abu hanifa Rahim Allah he's in prison. Now this route I was looking for Cody. He asked his co t ss viziers his ministers and they all said the next best best best person is

00:25:33--> 00:25:35

Sofia Anatolian akima. hula

00:25:36--> 00:26:20

is well versed in fifth. He is a great Imam. He goes to Anatolia, Rahim Allah. And he tells him, I want you to be the chief judge. Superior authority, Rahim Allah very commonly replies to the ruler. I don't want the job. I'm not fit for the job. Because these great moms they used to stay away from politics. They used to stay away from the courts of the rulers because they knew there's a lot of fitna involved there. He said, I'm not fit for the job. I don't want the job. The ruling sister I want you to be the judge. So if you're an authority, Rahim, Allah said, once again, look, I'm not fit for the job, I don't want the job. Then the ruler said, Fine. I'm going to execute you, I'm

00:26:20--> 00:26:24

going to kill you. The amount very calmly said, Really? Go ahead.

00:26:25--> 00:26:37

The ruler immediately called for the executioner. And he wanted the sword and everything to be brought and everything was laid in front of the man. And that's when the mom realized the rule is actually serious. He is going to kill me. He looked at the rule and said,

00:26:39--> 00:26:43

Give me time. Give me one day. Give me one day.

00:26:44--> 00:27:28

The ruler said fine. You can have your one day the mom goes back home. nightfalls The man gathers all of his belongings because he was not married. It was just himself. He gathered all of his belongings. He packed them onto a horse and he leaves there was iraq at that time he lives in Iraq. Morning arrives the ruler is waiting for him and Sophia, Sophia, Sophia, Sophia. He didn't come. He sends his forces to go check. They go by the House of the Imam and knocked it Oh, no response, the neighbors informed them. The Imam he left the city last night. The news travels the ruler and now he's so angry. He's enraged. The man he left. He left and he orders to give us a ruler at the time.

00:27:28--> 00:28:09

He orders all the neighboring cities, all the neighboring cities, he sends out a crier that if anybody brings information in regard to Sofia, howdy, Rahim Allah, there is a big reward in store for that individual. And it doesn't matter if you capture him bring him alive or dead. There is an even bigger reward for the individual. And this was put out all over the place. The mom is now fleeing. He's on his way to Yemen, on the way he stops by a garden. Because halfway through the journey, he loses whatever little food and things that he had, and I will think are very difficult for him. He stops by a garden and he sees the owner of the garden he goes up to him and tells him

00:28:09--> 00:28:50

Are you looking for a worker? Someone to look after your garden? Perhaps I can work for you for some time. If you pay me. The man said yes. As a matter of fact, I'm looking for someone. I don't mind employing you. So come work, look out he he owned, you know grape vineyards. So he was looking after the options and the minions one day now as time passes almost a couple of weeks passed by. This man also knew about this notice about this manhunt in regard to Imam sufian authority. But this man did not know that this individual was working in his orchard was Imam Sophia, so he did not know about today's pass and almost a month passes. And one day the man feels like eating a few grapes from his

00:28:50--> 00:29:09

vineyard. He calls for the Imam not knowing he is the man and he tells him Dr. Rajan, can you bring me a few grapes from my garden? And please bring some sweet ones. I want to eat some sweet grapes. The man he brings a handful of grapes and gives the owner the man starts to eat the grapes and he spits them out. It's bitter. And the more it's bitter.

00:29:11--> 00:29:41

He calls the man says Why have you brought me bitter grapes. I wanted sweet grapes Go and bring sweet grapes. Mom goes again and he brings a handful of grapes. The man eats and he spits it out again. He looks at the moment says Don't you know how to differentiate between bitter grapes and sweet grapes? I'm asking for sweet grapes. The mom looked at him and said yes, I mean, Master owner. I don't know how to differentiate between the sweet grapes and the bitter grapefruit. I've never tasted any of the grapes.

00:29:42--> 00:30:00

The man looks at him and says you work for one month in my vineyard in my garden. And you have never had even one grade. The mom said how can I when you have not given me permission? How can I eat? Not even one grape? Not even one grape? If you're not given me permission even no one even half a grape is haram for me. I think

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

can't have it. The man looks at him and says, You have so much of water so much of taqwa It is as if you are severe authority.

00:30:10--> 00:30:36

So the man keeps quiet now. There's a man. amazed by this incident, he goes to the market. And he's talking to his friends. He mentions about this incident and one of his friends asked him, can you please describe this individual to me? So the man tells me he sees a man with a, you know, long beard. This isn't Hi, this is how he is. This is his complexion. The man says he is Sophia. And that is his exact description. He is of your authority.

00:30:37--> 00:31:11

Then this man is so hungry, that I need to inform the halifa so that I can collect my reward, he rushes back to the garden, only to find the mom had already left. Because the mom knew that this man is going to cause trouble. He left the garden. Now he's traveling. He travels, like I said, he's traveling to Yemen, Yemen. He makes it to Yemen. He makes it to Yemen. And he spends some time in Yemen. They are to undercover. Nobody knows about him until an incident happened. And the people of Yemen falsely accused him of theft. They falsely accused him of theft.

00:31:12--> 00:31:20

So when they accused him he was brought to the Government of Yemen while Yemen, the governor of Yemen, and this government, I was tasked to question the man.

00:31:21--> 00:31:47

Did you really steal this? The mom said no, I've been falsely accused. Then the governor looks at the Imam and he senses something. You know, this man looks like Jesus. He looks very pious. He does everybody leave me and him alone. I want to question him alone. He looks at the man and says, Yo, dude, but I look at you, I see this aura of goodness around you. And I have this. I sense this righteousness around you. Can you please tell me who you are?

00:31:48--> 00:31:50

The man very calmly said Abdullah.

00:31:51--> 00:31:52

I am.

00:31:53--> 00:31:54

I am a slave of Allah.

00:31:56--> 00:32:17

Then the ruler, he said, I know we are all slaves of Allah. Can you please tell me who you are. And the Imam said Abdullah, I am Abdullah. The ruler said, I know you have to lie. I know that you are the slave of Allah. Can you please tell me your name? Then the man said my name is Sophia. Sophia live in man, Sophia and the son of who?

00:32:18--> 00:33:03

Sophia and even Abdullah Sophia. I'm the son of Abdullah. Because I know that you are the son of a slave of Allah. I want your father's real name. And please tell me your nessip as well. And I want you to promise by a line Give me your full name. Now the mom had no option. He said, Sophia and so the minute the ruler heard this, Sophia. Imam, you are the Imam. You are so sorry. You are the one Abu Jafar is hunting for there is a manhunt. There is a price on your head. Are you the individual? Mr. Marie Kondo replies, yes, I am the individual. Are you the one who refused the Office of being the chief judge said yes, I am the one. The ruler kept on asking him questions. And finally, the

00:33:03--> 00:33:40

governor of Yemen. He said, Yeah, man, don't worry. If you wish, you can stay in Yemen, view the righteous individual. Or if you wish, you can travel from Yemen wherever you want.

I will disclose I'm not going to disclose any information about you. The moment he comes out, and he realizes now you know people are going to get to know about him and he did not really like much of fame and popularity and all of that these were the righteous self Allahu Akbar.
