praise be to Allah we praise Him we seek His forgiveness guidance we send peace and praise on his final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah to forgive us to blot out our sins to have mercy upon us. And we ask Allah subhana wa Taala for useful beneficial knowledge and understanding and wide assessments. We trust only and rely only on him. And to him is our goal. There is no power of mind except out of a law.
Last time, we were in the middle of a conversation between heraclius if you remember, the Eastern Roman Empire Emperor, who's been sent a letter from Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam this is the year and the month following on from the fact of automobiles of good idea.
So here and the middle of story, which is mentioned in Sahih Bukhari, the long duration, part of it is direct from our blood in a bus to Abu sufian, which is the part we're dealing with now, other parts of it is not directly from some narration, I said there can be some question mark in part of the story and that was the initial part where
the Emperor heraclius had a dream remember, I mentioned in the last time that people of circumcision will be taken or taken over his kingdom from right under his feet in his the in the area he was in, in sharm in Syria, Damascus in that kind of area. Anyway, I don't want to repeat that story. This is not a thought which is raising viable soufiane through to oblivion abas and it is authentic. And
of course, Abu sufian becomes a Muslim so his narration is accepted after a while he has to what happened. I left the time when he's been. He mentioned the idea that heraclius told him who is the nearest in linear to him. soufiane said he was this is in Jerusalem. They were out doing business there as the Christ used to do with the caravans going to the north towards Syria and sharm in the winter in the summers to Yemen.
That was that trade caravans we love before H e Luffy. And Rashida is in the winter was safe in the summer, this is the caravans and this rendering business. It so happens that he is brought forward in front of iraklis because the letter directors received from Muhammad Rasul
he puts in a orders Abu sufian, who says he narrates the lineage in family to the Prophet Mohammed was received the letter has been received in the court of directives. He says you put him moving forward and his companions also the gravesites a little bit behind him. So when I asked him about this person, if he lies that they can they consider that his life or realize his life. And if you remember, I said that I will. soufiane won't elaborate on it. repeat it again said that he felt to us he wanted to lie.
He wanted to lie. He felt too ashamed even as a mushrik that his companions who will also mushriks will label him after the line as a liar. He couldn't stand up
So, as a consequence, he said I had to tell the truth. I want you to lie on to say negative things obviously because he wasn't a believer.
So iraklia says first thing I will say fiance heraclius asked me says
what he's his family status is nessa
Mohammed from Allah? What's his family status amongst you? So most of the answers is from normal family,
from good family lineage recognized from the kurush is from that family directly says, has anybody amongst you ever claimed from the grace have a claim to what he's claiming to be a prophet before?
soufiane said, I replied, No.
Then he said, was anybody amongst his ancestors, a king? From his family's predecessors? Sophia replied correctly? No.
Then Eritrea said, do the nobles or the poor people follow him?
So I replied the portfolio.
rack he said, I his followers increasing or decreasing day by day?
I replied, they're increasing
as to tell the truth.
They're increasing. Then Rockley says, Does anybody amongst those who embraced his religion become displeased and then renounce their religion afterwards?
Iraq, he said, Have you ever accused him of telling lies before he's claimed to be a prophet? I replied, No.
Rock, he says, Does he break his promises? I replied, No. We didn't stop was to actually say something negative. So he said, I applied No, we're in a truce with him at the moment, but we don't know what he will do in regards to it.
What soufiane says, and then he says, I could not find an opportunity to say anything against him, except this.
Or what might happen with the truce. So it's time digging deep to find something negative to say, the only thing you can say I don't know what he's gonna do, although he never breaks his promises. So I will say now himself is claiming that I tried this is the best I could do. And being negative
iraklis 10 said, Have you ever had a war with him? I replied, Yes. And he actually said, what was the outcome of the battles? I reply, sometimes he was victorious. Sometimes we were directly said, What is the order you to do that? What is he calling you to do?
I said, he tells us to worship Allah and Allah alone, and not to worship any anything along with him and to renounce all that our ancestors have said, yours is to pray regularly, to speak the truth to be chest
and to keep good relations with Kiffin.
In this is a message of Islam for us as well. You know, bring the message out.
You gotta bring out what's what's what we calling you to, to be honest, to believe in God to worship, to be kind, considerate.
To speak the truth.
Directly is then said through a translator to convey to me it, then heraclius was fiance's conveyed to me through the translator, the following Iraqi said, I asked you about his family. And your reply was that he was belonged to a noble family. In fact, all the apostles came from noble families amongst their respective people.
I questioned you whether anybody else amongst you claims such a thing as Prophethood, your reply was in the negative? If the answer had been in the affirmative, I would have thought that this man was following previous men's statements. But there wasn't and
then I asked you whether any of his ancestors were a king, you reply was in the negative. And if it had been in the affirmative, I would have thought that this man wanted to take back his ancestral kingdom.
But he's so this is his way of checking is knowledgeable is quite clearly. His kingdom. His knowledge is knowledgeable about the scriptures as well. And from what we heard last time, he was also the Christians were working for a profit.
As we said, and the Jews were waiting for a profit as well. Jews was still waiting for the Messiah would be gone, but they're waiting for a profit.
I further asked whether he has ever been accused of lies before.
He said what he said, and your reply was in the negative, so I wondered how a person who does not tell us
lie about others could ever tell a lie about God.
Powerful, isn't it?
It's amazing, this conversation with Iraqis really is it's not insidious, insoluble horrible.
That's why it needs study, looking at and contemplating amazing things.
How can you tell a lie about God? I can ask you whether the rich people followed him or the poor, you replied, It was a poor who followed him. And in fact, all apostles have been followed by this very personal people.
Then I asked you whether his followers were increasing or decreasing, he replied that they were increasing and in fact, this is the way of true faith till it is complete in all respects. I further asked you whether there was anybody who after embracing his religion became displeased, and then Renegade it and discarded the religion you reply and negative and in fact, that is the sign of true faith. When it delights and enters the hearts and mixes with them completely. It becomes firm and stays.
That's his experience, what faith is this a waiver around and people come and go?
That is the nature of true faith is saying, I asked you whether he had ever betrayed or broken his promises, you replied, negative. Likewise, the apostles and prophets never betray their promises.
Then I asked you what he ordered you to do your imply that he ordered you to worship Allah, Allah alone, not to worship any, etc. forbade you from worshiping idols, or do you to pray speak the truth and beat us is what you have said is true. I will Sophia.
If what you have said is true.
He will very soon occupy this place right underneath my feet.
who's saying that directly? If what you have said is true, he will very soon occupy the very place underneath my feet.
how true it became. And that was prophesied already to the subtlest, remember, and he strikes or have been given the keys of Sham where he's sitting. And he realizes Well,
if what you say is true, he will occupied the very person with my feet.
And I knew it from the scriptures that he was going to appear, but I did not know that he would be from you.
If I could reach him, yeah, if I could get to him, I would go immediately to meet him. And if I were with him, I was certainly wash his feet.
Profound, isn't it? wash his feet. Like there was two feet of Sally's.
We certainly what she's been a miraculous, then asked the letter addressed by Allah's Apostle.
And which had been delivered by Dale Kelby to the Governor Bush brought him he forwarded it and it was read, the contents of the lecture was follows.
Yeah, In the name of Allah and I mentioned the letter last time.
Yeah, and the same lecture is now read out, however,
after reading a lecture, which ends with the ayah from Surah, Ali imraan verse 63.
Yeah, well, yeah, kitabi tolo Illa Kelly met in San Juan in vain in our beta Kamala naumova illallah wa la new shriek a big shake up. Wala tequila, bada bada
bada bada bada mindu nila, in talofa. Who Lucia do the anomalously that was at the end of the letter, say oh people of the boat come to a common word common thing between us and you that we shall serve and worship non but Allah, I shall associate non with him in his divinity and that some of us will not take others as loads other than God other than Allah. And if they turn away from accepting this call, tell them bear witness, all of you that we are the ones who have indeed submitted ourselves exclusively exclusively to Allah.
Remembering that I mentioned to you that the problem is I sort of mentioned that if you submit
become Muslim, then your award is twice. I remember I mentioned that last time for Christians and Jews who become Muslim twice.
I've also found that said when the heraclius had finished his speech, and notice what he's been saying, and the courtiers and the Christians are all gathered, the leadership are there as well.
His speech and read the letter, there was a big kerfuffle, an outcry in the palace.
And also fiance so we were quickly turned up or shut out of the court, because they have to deal with what's going on the big kerfuffle and noise of what is being saying, Look what he's been saying. Sounds like a believer
in the Prophet sallallahu.
So we were ushered out very quickly, and I said to my companions, as he's being ushered out with the companions, he said,
For good Julius Hubby, he now Krishna laqad laqad Amira amaroo Evening Abbey CAPTCHA, in Abuja, hoffa who Maluku bunny as far as
he goes, I sent to my companions, you know,
as we will be ushered out that
the the issue of imminent or be capture this is to try and it's, it's referring to Mohammed Salah Islam, it may be capture, the son of a b capture, capture some said was
an ancestor who was not well known, or just a made up name, to sort of reduce rather than saying in in their abdomen live or Yeah, and we, Abdullah Abdullah live not using the real class names just me kind of show like, you know, to solve
a title to bring him low in his eyes. But he's saying, look, the issue of this person who we're looking down upon,
has become prominent even when the king of the ban was for Ban asper means the people of Golden asper from yellow, you can say from blonde hair or from golden look in the face that was referring to the Europeans basically, that this issue has become prominent, even with the king of the Ospreys, saying the Byzantines, even he seems to be afraid of him. Abu sufian is saying to his company on the way out, but he's shocked by what he's listening.
He said then I started to become sure that he would be the Conqueror in the near future till I embraced Islam. So now doubt civil soufiane is already coming creeping in Abu sufian and question as to what's happening
because this is the code of the present times you know, you arms don't look that way. They just like goat herders and camel herders in the Byzantine fault and same with the penicillin co founder. They're insignificant.
So that's what happens. And then what happens in Jerusalem heraclius It seems soon after this mentioned in Buhari as well and I said this part of the story is questioned as to the exact truth of it, but it's mentioned in Buhari as narrator meant some narrative mentioned. And there was somebody there because there's no believer that in the court, he gathers all the leadership of the Roman Empire in the in the shop, and they meet in a in a palace in Homs.
He tells the people once he calls them to lock the doors
of the palace.
And what is he said?
Africa is a 40 years.
He says yeah my children room
or people of Rome or the leaders of Rome
halochem Phil Falah what rushed. What is what a mole cuckoo for Toba.
You want success if you want success and to be rightly guided, and to keep a hold of your kingdom and power. Then I say to you give your veya to this prophet.
Give your awesome allegiance to this prophet.
So for hosue Hi satin hormonal wash.
So there's an outcry and these they can't accept this. And they go like wild camels are running towards the doors. Some of them I interpret and they want to get a hold of their armor because some reason
I mentioned although not himmelfarb that he locks some in the palace with the doors to lock without their weapons in case they do some again, right? So they're running, they want to get away and they hit this there's an outcry. So, he realizes this from what I do have got the one liquor they find that the doors are closed for law article
Nosferatu, whom were a seminal man, then he when he realizes how much they are in hatred of this message, and he gives up any hope of face coming to them, he gives up as well. So now we don't know what the truth is. But what does he said? He says in equal to morality, Ernie fan, Fw Ruby her she detto kumala de Nicole Padre.
He said I was only said these things to test you to see how strong you were in your religion.
Yeah, and I've noticed that realize how strong you are in your religion and hatred for that. For such a doula who or rather what I do and so they fell prostrate in front of him. They accepted accepted him that he was only kidding or whatever. Yeah, but kinda La Liga who Shani, Morocco? And this was the last that was anything to do with Islam or the monitor up. And so this question marks isn't the was the on the verge of Eman? He realized the truth, his power and glory and M. Empire stopped him. It seems that way. There's
a lot more of them. That's what we know about the story
of heraclius. And the letter sent to him. And in regards to Abu sufian and his interaction as he was in the shower. It's a very interesting story. Long story in Sahiba. Hardy, you don't need to look at
the story and see that because he's got it in great detail already. And that's the best place to look at it in regards to that. Now,
a few of the things I mentioned to you the stuff that happened with the letters that went to the other places, whether it was kisara or porpoise, Egypt in Alexandria, whether it was Abby's senior.
Now, a few instances happened around the same sort of time around the time of fiber, which is the end of the sixth year of age, Europe and the beginning of the seventh year of Hydra, which is the year for a reservoir to hybrid. A few other instances happen. A one is
to do with the tribes have
an as mentioned in the Malik that a group of people mean open olena is not sure some call them uncle Anna Urena. And I says he's not sure if he's ockel already. Now one of the the two these people came to Medina. Yeah. And they came
and they can sort of worn out tattered, and they came and they gave birth to a soldier so some became Muslim.
Then, as they fell ill they asked us for some permission to go to the outskirts of Medina. And they asked him about the illness, the promises and recommended from the camels of the Treasury. Medina's Treasury owned by the government, that they begin from its milk and its urine mixed together as medicinal for their fever and illness. So they were being looked after. Yeah. And the person who was in charge of the camels, they were being looked after by the Medina's the other Muslims because they become Muslim and they were ill, and they got better after some time. When they got better, as it happened, they killed they killed the overlocker of the camels in the Medina prophet SAW some
person who was in charge who was looking out for them and they run off with the candles installed them
in wonder why mentions Not only did they kill him, they gouge out the eyes of this person who was the caretaker of the camp. You'll see the significance of that. So the prophet SAW someone news came to him of that sent out
the Italian group to go and
and to arrest them.
And during the quarter what was meted out to them.
This was seen as highway robbery. Yeah. And it's seen as this is not just stealing, this is seen as highway robbery. And the Quran came in regards to this as well.
So what was done to them is their hands and feet was cut off on opposite sides. Yeah. And they were left to die in the in the desert their eyes were gouged out as well, in some way mentioned that this gouging out of eyes was never done again.
big debate about allamah Is this the
punishment for highway robbery. Some said it is for highway robbery specifically other said it is for motorists.
The threat widened even more. But the best opinion is for highway robbery. Some study became abrogated. Yeah.
Although there's no obligation verse really. It's a big debate on this whole issue. But anyway, what happens is that's what was done and they were and they perished and died in the desert after this has been done to them.
Just to finish with the idea that was revealed on this juncture, it is said was from Surah makhija
verse number 33, Allah smart Allah says Allah will demonstrate origin in Nana
levena you Javi buena la hora Sula via Sana fill out defesa
fo mina danika La MaMa
dunia what a home feel for you rocky has been all the Ullswater, those who wage war against a lot His Messenger and go above the earth spreading this kind of mischeif
Indeed their campuses that they either so choices given here either that they can be
put to death, or crucified or have their hands and feet cut off from opposite sides or that they'll be banished from the land any of those can be used by the government in regards to highway robbery therefore
such shall be the degradation in this world humiliation in this world and a mighty chastisement awaits them is installed for them in the world to come.
will carry on after somebody to Vietnam
dealt with the story of
Cain and Raina Okay, all Audrina tribe, people from the tribes who came and who did highway robbery and also
the trade the Messenger of Allah and
there were apostates as well. But it was because not because pastas either because of what they did in regards to Bay on their claim to become Muslim was false.
That's around the same sort of time.
Also, there is
a battle that's not a major battle Cold War to vertiv recall.
That to recall, mentioned Mahalia Muslim, as well as see the writings, and
it is reported by Abu Musab ashari
so it is likely This is very shortly after hiber rather than just before fiber, because Abu Musab Shari was one of the ones who was still in a very senior
knows how to deal with and he came back with Jaffa nambi bollywood, I will say that there is return of them was Muslim from avicennia to Medina, since they've been gone from McCann time was just immediately after fiber.
That's why the prophet SAW some famously said I'm not sure what I'm more happy with whether the victory of a hyper or with the return of Jaffa is cousin of course. Jaffa, Vitaly and the believers who came home Habiba came who I mentioned before, would been a good lost her husband
who died in our senior She was the daughter of
Lucifer, Sofia. And the public saw son was married to her and proposed and married to her through the majestic the king and the senior over there while she was still there. That proposal the marriage took place through an intermediary who went there so she was married and her apartment was being made ready in Medina. So this is all around the same time. Suffice it to say we're gonna try several Musashi reports this law to record this was an attack
from lots of fun now Quraysh have been silenced because there's a treaty peace treaty who they be. But heimer and the Gaza fan were the other two prongs of the three pronged main attack on in Gaza. 200 wasn't a
lot of countless 1000s of cavalry horsemen from lots of fun. Lots of fun, are in alliance with hybl. They're their allies, and they benefit from a hybrid from the Jews in kleiber. Who are in control. There's Arabs, Muslims and Jews in hiber.
Right, but it tilted towards favor of more control of the Jews when Bernadine were evicted after because we're told by the prophesize from from Medina.
They were the second Jewish tribe who broke there who betrayed the prophet SAW Santa Medina became traitors, and they were evicted and they went with all their belongings and all their riches and pomp and glory. And they went to settle in hybl.
The hatred and the scheming didn't disappear.
Yeah, they were out of Medina, but they will now to reach from what they could do. So they were the ones led by the likes of Fourier in the after.
And the two brothers from
internet I'll be in a beautiful cake Salaam in Abuja, hoecake and
kwinana in the abbey for quite they were the trooper he was these were the late leadership have been honoree and the leadership in hiber
will come down to them.
So what are fun, who are the allies of hyper
Jews controlled by the Jews especially buena de, they're at war already still with Medina, they haven't finished after 100. It's only the grace who have been made a true a true a true sweep. So they're plotting and planning and continued and one of the attacks to do with
World War Two that to recall, was to do with the water fund.
And the prophet SAW some went out with a small battalion. And we also actually mentioned
indicators though the six of them but other require indicate that there were six beasts per camel. So now I'm going to share camels, six of them between each camel
animal Musashi, Hadith in Bukhari Muslim mentions that on this trip,
they became so worn out of walking on foot, that their sandals and whatever they were wearing, became worn out, they had blisters, he said, my nails fell out, it was so painful and horrible, that they had to get rags of cloth and tie them on the feet tall. So recall comes from the rags of cloth that they tried on their feet
to walk, so they're in very bad conditions. And it was to do with that so recall also,
that it was a time when
the method of cycle hope was revealed to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu hope
it's mentioned the Quran but its method was shown by Rasulullah saw they were in fear of being attacked.
When prayer time came by a lot of fun. So the prophet SAW some arrange the military into two groups.
Right. So you got two records for example, to to do for salah and of course it was
originally it was because of hope the pastor came. You know that yes.
