Uthman is the ambassador, and he's been killed.

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

That's an act of war. We will we

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

will retaliate against that as an act of

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

war. And so we will we will go

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

fight with the Maqans. And by the way,

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

if you're gonna fight Maqans in their own

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

territory, most likely, you're all all gonna get

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

killed, which is why some Sahaba said, this

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

bay'a, this pledge was a pledge to the

00:00:16 --> 00:00:19

death. Others said, no. This was a pledge

00:00:19 --> 00:00:21

to get justice, but it means the same

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

thing.

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

From boils down to the same thing. So

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

and this this pledge will also be mentioned

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

in guess what?

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

to Hajj from bayanah.comforward/thurhija.

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

So,

00:01:02 --> 00:01:04

so far I've spoken to you about

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

2 people that came to try to negotiate

00:01:07 --> 00:01:09

with the prophet, sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.

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

Neither of them were from Mecca.

00:01:12 --> 00:01:13

So the first of them came from the

00:01:13 --> 00:01:14

tribe of Khuzara,

00:01:15 --> 00:01:16

Budayl

00:01:16 --> 00:01:17

or Badil,

00:01:18 --> 00:01:20

and then the second one, Urwa, was one

00:01:20 --> 00:01:23

of the elite leaders of, the Taif region.

00:01:24 --> 00:01:25

He's a Taqafi.

00:01:26 --> 00:01:28

So he came and his negotiations, as we

00:01:28 --> 00:01:30

saw, failed. And at the end of it,

00:01:30 --> 00:01:31

and even though he left offended,

00:01:32 --> 00:01:34

he was also kind of overwhelmed by the

00:01:34 --> 00:01:36

unity of the Muslims and the way they

00:01:36 --> 00:01:37

honor the prophet

00:01:38 --> 00:01:40

So he demonstrated that to the Quraysh and

00:01:40 --> 00:01:42

let them know, listen. You guys don't have

00:01:42 --> 00:01:43

anything on these people.

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

They are far more unified and far more

00:01:46 --> 00:01:48

powerful and far more loyal to their leader

00:01:48 --> 00:01:50

than you guys can even imagine. So the

00:01:50 --> 00:01:51

better thing for you to do is let

00:01:51 --> 00:01:54

them quietly make their umrah and lead. That's

00:01:54 --> 00:01:56

the smarter play for you. I mean well

00:01:56 --> 00:01:58

for you. But they dismissed his advice.

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

The third thing that happened was the prophet

00:02:03 --> 00:02:06

thought that maybe sending someone from Madinah,

00:02:07 --> 00:02:10

because, you know, the the the Quraysh primarily

00:02:10 --> 00:02:11

have a problem with the Maqans,

00:02:12 --> 00:02:13

Right? The Makkans who left the Muhajirun.

00:02:14 --> 00:02:16

So maybe sending a Muslim in from Medina

00:02:16 --> 00:02:18

might be neutral and they might be willing

00:02:18 --> 00:02:19

to speak with him.

00:02:19 --> 00:02:22

So they send, you know, Khiraz bin Umayyal

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

Khuzai,

00:02:24 --> 00:02:25

and they recognize

00:02:25 --> 00:02:27

the camel and they beat him up. And

00:02:27 --> 00:02:29

they they basically beat him up and then

00:02:29 --> 00:02:31

somebody recognized from that he's from their tribe

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

and he let them go. He was actually

00:02:32 --> 00:02:34

all not a Madinan, but he was from

00:02:34 --> 00:02:36

Fuza'a also. So he got let go and

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

he came back, meaning no conversation happened.

00:02:38 --> 00:02:41

So now there's been 2 attempts from the

00:02:41 --> 00:02:43

outskirts and one attempt from the Muslims, but

00:02:43 --> 00:02:45

no conversations are moving forward.

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

But then what happens is

00:02:47 --> 00:02:50

another side so one side is Ta'if, Khuzaa'a,

00:02:50 --> 00:02:53

etcetera. Another side neighbor is actually the the

00:02:53 --> 00:02:55

Kenan region, the Kenana.

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

And one of their big leaders is Al

00:02:58 --> 00:02:59

Hunais.

00:02:59 --> 00:03:01

I know there's a lot of names, but

00:03:01 --> 00:03:02

it's important to remember some of these names

00:03:02 --> 00:03:05

because this this one's actually pretty significant.

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

His name is Hunayz.

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

And

00:03:08 --> 00:03:09

Hudais, what you should know about him is

00:03:09 --> 00:03:11

he has a lot of respect for the

00:03:11 --> 00:03:12

Kaaba,

00:03:12 --> 00:03:14

and he's a religious guy. So even the

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

you know, you could be pagan, you don't

00:03:16 --> 00:03:17

believe in Islam, but you can still be

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

religious.

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

And part of his religious

00:03:20 --> 00:03:22

outlook was he had a lot of respect

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

for the Kaaba and the rituals of the

00:03:23 --> 00:03:25

Kaaba. And a lot of the rituals of

00:03:25 --> 00:03:27

the Kaaba, you should know for your own

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

knowledge,

00:03:28 --> 00:03:31

even the non Muslims that were doing pagan

00:03:31 --> 00:03:33

worship at the Kaaba, a lot of that

00:03:33 --> 00:03:36

pagan worship was just the deformed version of

00:03:36 --> 00:03:39

what Ibrahim alaihis salam taught originally

00:03:39 --> 00:03:41

1000 of years ago. It just went through

00:03:41 --> 00:03:42

many mutations

00:03:43 --> 00:03:45

and it became this pagan thing. But some

00:03:45 --> 00:03:48

of the stuff that was in there was

00:03:48 --> 00:03:50

actually still original. Like, they were doing tawaf,

00:03:50 --> 00:03:53

and tawaf was something taught to Ibrahim alaihis

00:03:53 --> 00:03:54

salam.

00:03:56 --> 00:03:58

They were still sacrificing the animals,

00:03:58 --> 00:04:00

and the sacrifice of the animal was taught

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

to Ibrahim Alaihi Salam. So even though they

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

had a lot of shirk,

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

if you peel off the layers of the

00:04:06 --> 00:04:08

ship behind it were actually remnants

00:04:09 --> 00:04:12

of the religion of Ibrahim alaihi salaam still.

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

Right?

00:04:13 --> 00:04:15

So, and part of those are common to

00:04:15 --> 00:04:18

Islam. The Muslims brought animals to sacrifice. The

00:04:18 --> 00:04:20

bushrikun also used to have animals to sacrifice.

00:04:21 --> 00:04:23

Why is that the common thing? Because we

00:04:23 --> 00:04:25

are restoring the legacy of Ibrahim alaihis salaam,

00:04:25 --> 00:04:27

and the mushrikun have bits and pieces from

00:04:27 --> 00:04:30

that legacy that they're still holding onto and

00:04:30 --> 00:04:31

mixing in a lot of their corruption with

00:04:31 --> 00:04:33

it. Right? So, Khaleis has a lot of

00:04:33 --> 00:04:35

respect for the Kaaba. He has, you know,

00:04:35 --> 00:04:37

a lot of reverence for,

00:04:37 --> 00:04:39

the animals that are being brought for the

00:04:39 --> 00:04:42

sacrifice, etcetera. The Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam

00:04:42 --> 00:04:44

sees him coming from a distance, and he

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

knows that the people of Kinana,

00:04:46 --> 00:04:48

they are more religious in that way. So,

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

So

00:04:52 --> 00:04:54

one of the people of Banu Kinana Ullay

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

said, Let me go talk to him. So

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

he told the Quraysh, Listen, the Taif thing

00:04:59 --> 00:05:01

didn't work, other places didn't work, I'm a

00:05:01 --> 00:05:04

religious guy, I'm a softer person, I'll go

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

speak with them. Let me see if I

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

can make sense with them.

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

(5:5)

00:05:07 --> 00:05:08

So they told him, Go talk to this

00:05:08 --> 00:05:09

man, Muhammad.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:16

When he came to approach the prophet Sallallahu

00:05:16 --> 00:05:17

Alaihi Wasallam and the companions,

00:05:20 --> 00:05:21

hadafulan

00:05:21 --> 00:05:22

wahuaminuawmanuazimunalbudan

00:05:29 --> 00:05:31

So he said, this is a person, they

00:05:31 --> 00:05:34

have a lot of respect and regard for

00:05:34 --> 00:05:36

animals that are supposed to be sacrificed for

00:05:36 --> 00:05:37

religious reasons.

00:05:37 --> 00:05:39

Now, did the Muslims bring their animals?

00:05:40 --> 00:05:42

They brought their animals. So he said, even

00:05:42 --> 00:05:44

though he's approaching, why don't you do this?

00:05:44 --> 00:05:45

Take all the animals that are meant to

00:05:45 --> 00:05:48

be sacrificed, put them in front of us.

00:05:48 --> 00:05:50

So the first thing he's gonna see is

00:05:50 --> 00:05:52

he's not gonna see the Muslims, he's gonna

00:05:52 --> 00:05:54

see the animals that are supposed to be

00:05:54 --> 00:05:56

sacrificed, and he has respect for that already.

00:05:56 --> 00:05:57

He's like, Oh,

00:05:57 --> 00:05:59

they're here on a sacred pilgrimage?

00:06:00 --> 00:06:01

These are sacrificial animals.

00:06:02 --> 00:06:04

And as he got closer,

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

and as he got peep as he came

00:06:07 --> 00:06:09

closer to the people, he noticed that the

00:06:09 --> 00:06:10

people were doing

00:06:14 --> 00:06:17

They were remembering God, they were remembering Allah.

00:06:17 --> 00:06:18

So he's like,

00:06:18 --> 00:06:20

this is not war. These people are here

00:06:20 --> 00:06:21

to worship God.

00:06:22 --> 00:06:24

They brought their animals for the sacrifice. That's

00:06:24 --> 00:06:26

why they're here. Why am I here to

00:06:26 --> 00:06:27

negotiate with them?

00:06:30 --> 00:06:31

When he saw that he said,

00:06:32 --> 00:06:35

you know, subhanAllah is said in classical Arabic,

00:06:35 --> 00:06:37

when you see something blasphemous,

00:06:38 --> 00:06:40

when you see something that is an affront

00:06:40 --> 00:06:43

to God, something offensive to Allah, That's when

00:06:43 --> 00:06:43

you say, SubhanAllah.

00:06:44 --> 00:06:46

So when he says, SubhanAllah, it's almost like

00:06:46 --> 00:06:48

he's saying, God forbid,

00:06:51 --> 00:06:53

It's not okay for these people to be

00:06:53 --> 00:06:55

prevented from going to the house. This is

00:06:55 --> 00:06:57

wrong. These people shouldn't be here. They should

00:06:57 --> 00:06:59

have a right to go to the Kaaba.

00:06:59 --> 00:07:02

He hasn't even come to negotiate, and he

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

became an advocate for the Muslims.

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

The guy from

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

Khilala, Khulais,

00:07:17 --> 00:07:20

He said, I saw sacrifice animals that have

00:07:20 --> 00:07:22

already been marked. This is a secret journey.

00:07:22 --> 00:07:24

How are you stopping this from happening?

00:07:30 --> 00:07:31

I don't think they should be stopped from

00:07:31 --> 00:07:33

worshiping at the house. This is,

00:07:34 --> 00:07:35

this is, sacrilegious.

00:07:36 --> 00:07:37

This is blasphemous.

00:07:37 --> 00:07:39

This is a crime against the religion.

00:07:39 --> 00:07:42

Even though he's not a Muslim, he believes

00:07:42 --> 00:07:44

in the sanctity of the Kaaba, he believes

00:07:44 --> 00:07:45

in animals that are meant for the sacrifice.

00:07:46 --> 00:07:48

So based on that, even from his religious

00:07:48 --> 00:07:50

perspective, this is a crime against the religion.

00:07:50 --> 00:07:51

It's a spiritual

00:07:52 --> 00:07:53

crime. So they told him,

00:07:57 --> 00:07:59

He said, sit down. You're just a bed

00:07:59 --> 00:08:00

when you don't know anything.

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

So they basically insulted him.

00:08:03 --> 00:08:05

Khalees got upset. Now he's a neighbor to

00:08:05 --> 00:08:07

the tribe of Quraysh, and he's now upset.

00:08:15 --> 00:08:17

He said, I swear to God, that is

00:08:17 --> 00:08:21

not what we align ourselves with you for.

00:08:21 --> 00:08:23

We have taken an oath to be loyal

00:08:23 --> 00:08:26

to you, to be allies with you, but

00:08:26 --> 00:08:28

not on this. Meaning, our entire basis for

00:08:28 --> 00:08:30

being loyal to you is that you take

00:08:30 --> 00:08:32

care of the Kaaba and you give people

00:08:32 --> 00:08:34

the right to the Kaaba when they are

00:08:34 --> 00:08:37

giving they're they're coming for their religious reasons.

00:08:37 --> 00:08:39

You are depriving these people of their religious

00:08:39 --> 00:08:42

right. That is a violation of the treaty

00:08:42 --> 00:08:43

we have with you.

00:08:43 --> 00:08:45

Basically, this is his way of saying,

00:08:46 --> 00:08:48

you and I, your people, and Kinana, which

00:08:48 --> 00:08:50

is right next door neighbor to the Quraysh,

00:08:50 --> 00:08:52

are no longer affiliated.

00:08:53 --> 00:08:54

We're cutting ties with you.

00:08:54 --> 00:08:56

So that this this was a political blow

00:08:56 --> 00:08:57

to the Quraysh also.

00:09:03 --> 00:09:05

He said, I swear by the one whose

00:09:05 --> 00:09:06

life is in my hands, meaning I swear

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

to God, you will absolutely let Muhammad be,

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

and let him do what he came here

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

to do.

00:09:15 --> 00:09:18

Or I will separate from you all of

00:09:18 --> 00:09:20

the neighboring tribes, I will convince all of

00:09:20 --> 00:09:23

the tribes to cut their ties with you.

00:09:26 --> 00:09:27

They said to him, shut up.

00:09:28 --> 00:09:30

Now now you know the word for shut

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

up. It's

00:09:34 --> 00:09:36

for biggie. Right? So you you say take

00:09:36 --> 00:09:39

something, you say. In Arabic, you say means

00:09:39 --> 00:09:41

shut up, which actually and and so in

00:09:41 --> 00:09:43

Farsi, you say take this, you say.

00:09:44 --> 00:09:46

And in Arabic, you say, shut up, which

00:09:46 --> 00:09:48

some for kids, it's the same, isn't it?

00:09:48 --> 00:09:49

Take this and shut up.

00:09:53 --> 00:09:54

Anyway, so they said, man,

00:09:56 --> 00:09:56

just stop

00:09:59 --> 00:10:01

talking to us, We're gonna do whatever we

00:10:01 --> 00:10:03

wanna do. Leave us alone. We have the

00:10:03 --> 00:10:05

choice to make your nothing. You're no one.

00:10:05 --> 00:10:07

So basically, they now have alienated the Kinana

00:10:07 --> 00:10:09

tribe from themselves also.

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

The prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam suggested that

00:10:12 --> 00:10:14

the first negotiator he sent got beat up

00:10:15 --> 00:10:15

from Khuzaa.

00:10:16 --> 00:10:18

So maybe we should send someone who's harder

00:10:18 --> 00:10:20

to beat up. So we should send Umar

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

bin Al Shattab.

00:10:21 --> 00:10:22

So the prophet nominated

00:10:23 --> 00:10:25

Umar bin Al Shattab radiAllahu anhu to go

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

in and negotiate on the Muslim behalf. And

00:10:27 --> 00:10:29

Umar said, listen, I have no tribal affiliations

00:10:29 --> 00:10:32

left inside. They will probably try to kill

00:10:32 --> 00:10:33

me. I'll probably take out more of them

00:10:33 --> 00:10:35

before they get to me, but this is

00:10:35 --> 00:10:36

not gonna be a negotiation. I'm telling you

00:10:36 --> 00:10:37

that right now.

00:10:38 --> 00:10:41

Right? So he he knew. He has no

00:10:41 --> 00:10:42

problem with it, but he's like, this is

00:10:42 --> 00:10:44

not gonna be much of a negotiation.

00:10:44 --> 00:10:46

If you're okay with that, I'm good with

00:10:46 --> 00:10:47

it. Let's go.

00:10:47 --> 00:10:48

But in my opinion, if you want a

00:10:48 --> 00:10:51

negotiation, I think is a better option.

00:10:52 --> 00:10:54

The reason is a better option is because

00:10:54 --> 00:10:57

he is related to Abu Sufyan. And Abu

00:10:57 --> 00:11:00

Sufyan, for all practical purposes, is now the

00:11:00 --> 00:11:03

governor of Mecca, essentially the president, if you

00:11:03 --> 00:11:05

will. Right? So he's he's cousins or he's

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

he's nephew to the president. So there's a

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

closer closer relationship, and that's why it's probably

00:11:11 --> 00:11:13

a better chance they're not gonna attack Uthman

00:11:13 --> 00:11:15

because he belongs to the governing family.

00:11:16 --> 00:11:17

So he has a better chance to negotiate.

00:11:17 --> 00:11:20

Okay. So with that in mind, they send

00:11:20 --> 00:11:21

Uthman radiAllahu anja.

00:11:22 --> 00:11:23

There's a gate before you get into the

00:11:23 --> 00:11:27

Makkah itself, proper Makkah, called Baldah. People stopped

00:11:27 --> 00:11:28

him at the gate. They wouldn't let him

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

get through, but then he's he he met

00:11:30 --> 00:11:32

one of his relatives, Abdaine bin Sa'ad, and

00:11:32 --> 00:11:34

then 'as, who's his cousin, who's from the

00:11:34 --> 00:11:36

same tribe. He said, No. No. No. He's

00:11:36 --> 00:11:37

my cousin. Let him come in. Let him

00:11:37 --> 00:11:39

come in. So through a connection, Rasman radiAllahu

00:11:39 --> 00:11:41

anhu made it inside.

00:11:41 --> 00:11:43

Now, when he made it inside, he met

00:11:43 --> 00:11:45

with the leaders of Quraysh 1 by 1.

00:11:45 --> 00:11:46

The prophet

00:11:46 --> 00:11:48

had also instructed him to meet with the

00:11:48 --> 00:11:50

prisoners of war. Muslims were being held captive

00:11:50 --> 00:11:52

in Makkah. So he told them to meet

00:11:52 --> 00:11:54

with them also. So he met with some

00:11:54 --> 00:11:55

of the people that were basically,

00:11:56 --> 00:11:59

held back as hostages inside Makkah. He met

00:11:59 --> 00:12:01

with the leaders of Makkah 1 by 1

00:12:01 --> 00:12:02

until he met with the presidential

00:12:03 --> 00:12:05

figure himself, Abu Sufyan, who's a relative of

00:12:05 --> 00:12:08

his. Right? And Abu Sufyan basically told him,

00:12:12 --> 00:12:13

He said,

00:12:13 --> 00:12:16

listen. I will never allow the Arabs to

00:12:16 --> 00:12:18

say about us

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

that we gave you even an inch.

00:12:20 --> 00:12:23

I cannot let that happen because now let

00:12:23 --> 00:12:25

me pause here before I go further. I

00:12:25 --> 00:12:28

want you to understand why this is so

00:12:28 --> 00:12:29

delicate for Quraish.

00:12:30 --> 00:12:32

They have fought with the Muslims before.

00:12:33 --> 00:12:35

Three wars have already happened. Multiple other battles

00:12:35 --> 00:12:37

have already happened, smaller scale.

00:12:38 --> 00:12:39

But this is the first time they're about

00:12:39 --> 00:12:42

to negotiate, or there's even a thought of

00:12:42 --> 00:12:45

negotiating. And when you negotiate, you give something

00:12:45 --> 00:12:45

and you

00:12:46 --> 00:12:47

take something. And you don't

00:12:48 --> 00:12:49

you know how you you ever heard the

00:12:49 --> 00:12:52

phrase recently, we don't negotiate with terrorists?

00:12:53 --> 00:12:55

Right? So if you're negotiating with them, you've

00:12:55 --> 00:12:57

already considered them a legitimate party.

00:12:59 --> 00:13:01

So you've been calling them terrorists all this

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

time,

00:13:01 --> 00:13:03

and now you're negotiating with them and you're

00:13:03 --> 00:13:06

giving them an inch even, that means you

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

legitimize them.

00:13:07 --> 00:13:10

And that means they are so powerful, they

00:13:10 --> 00:13:12

went from being criminals in your eyes to

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

actually being a legitimate government in your eyes.

00:13:14 --> 00:13:16

You have to recognize their legitimacy

00:13:16 --> 00:13:19

by negotiating with them. And that would be

00:13:19 --> 00:13:22

a major loss and a major defeat for

00:13:22 --> 00:13:24

the Quraysh in the eyes of the larger

00:13:24 --> 00:13:25

public.

00:13:25 --> 00:13:28

By the way, they already told their neighboring

00:13:28 --> 00:13:31

tribe, Baif, we're not gonna negotiate. Forget this.

00:13:31 --> 00:13:33

They already told Kinana people, we're not gonna

00:13:33 --> 00:13:35

negotiate. They already told Khuzaa people, we're not

00:13:35 --> 00:13:37

gonna negotiate. Get out of here. Get out

00:13:37 --> 00:13:38

of here. Get out of here. We're gonna

00:13:38 --> 00:13:40

do what we wanna do. We're not we're

00:13:40 --> 00:13:41

not gonna give them an inch. And now

00:13:41 --> 00:13:43

all of a sudden, they're supposed to negotiate,

00:13:43 --> 00:13:46

so Abu Sufyan says, this is really bad

00:13:46 --> 00:13:46

for us.

00:13:47 --> 00:13:49

We're gonna look weak, we're gonna look like

00:13:49 --> 00:13:51

we don't follow through on our claims, and

00:13:51 --> 00:13:54

our our our our press release is different

00:13:54 --> 00:13:55

from our actual policy.

00:13:56 --> 00:13:58

Right? So the contradiction will come out, and

00:13:58 --> 00:13:59

we're gonna look like idiots in front of

00:13:59 --> 00:14:02

the world stage. Right? Sound familiar?

00:14:09 --> 00:14:11

I'll tell you what this hadith is about.

00:14:13 --> 00:14:13

So, Uthman

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

who is inside and they say, hey, so

00:14:15 --> 00:14:17

do you wanna make tawaf?

00:14:18 --> 00:14:19

He said, why shouldn't I make tawaf? I'm

00:14:19 --> 00:14:21

not gonna make tawaf without the Prophet

00:14:22 --> 00:14:23

I don't I didn't come here for that.

00:14:23 --> 00:14:25

I came here to negotiate with you, to

00:14:25 --> 00:14:27

let all of my people come, and the

00:14:27 --> 00:14:28

messenger of Allah come, sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:14:29 --> 00:14:32

So that made them want to hold Uthman

00:14:32 --> 00:14:33

back.

00:14:34 --> 00:14:36

So now it's been a long time. Now

00:14:36 --> 00:14:38

there's a different set of reports. Is it

00:14:38 --> 00:14:39

a few hours or is it a few

00:14:39 --> 00:14:41

days? We don't know. But Uthman

00:14:42 --> 00:14:44

was held back, and no news from Uthman.

00:14:45 --> 00:14:47

Now what happens on the other side? We

00:14:47 --> 00:14:49

haven't heard from Uthman, the Muslims are camped

00:14:49 --> 00:14:49

out in Hudaybiyah,

00:14:50 --> 00:14:52

no more fighting is happening, but we haven't

00:14:52 --> 00:14:54

heard from Uthman. And the the way this

00:14:54 --> 00:14:56

plays out, I'm gonna do an imaginary scenario

00:14:56 --> 00:14:58

for you. There's a couple of Sabah sitting

00:14:58 --> 00:15:00

together, and they're like, Osman hasn't come back

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

for a while.

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

Yeah.

00:15:03 --> 00:15:04

I hope he didn't get killed.

00:15:05 --> 00:15:07

Just somebody just may have said, I hope

00:15:07 --> 00:15:08

he didn't get killed.

00:15:09 --> 00:15:10

Five feet over this way, you didn't hear

00:15:10 --> 00:15:12

the whole conversation. You just heard the word

00:15:12 --> 00:15:14

killed and. You're

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

like,

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

did you

00:15:16 --> 00:15:19

I I thought I heard got killed. Did

00:15:19 --> 00:15:20

got killed?

00:15:20 --> 00:15:22

I don't know. Maybe we find out. So

00:15:22 --> 00:15:24

you go to somebody else. Hey. Have you

00:15:24 --> 00:15:26

heard anything about being killed?

00:15:26 --> 00:15:28

No. I haven't heard. Let me ask around.

00:15:29 --> 00:15:31

And now the question is being asked. And

00:15:31 --> 00:15:33

enough questions being asked, a lot of people

00:15:33 --> 00:15:34

are saying Osman got killed.

00:15:36 --> 00:15:39

Yo. Everybody knows got killed.

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

Got killed.

00:15:42 --> 00:15:44

So what happens in a crowd, you overhear

00:15:44 --> 00:15:45

something,

00:15:45 --> 00:15:47

it travels, it travels, it travels,

00:15:47 --> 00:15:49

it becomes something else. Some of the younger

00:15:49 --> 00:15:51

people here probably know the game of telephone.

00:15:52 --> 00:15:54

Right? I played the game of telephone in

00:15:54 --> 00:15:55

my in the bayonet the old bayonet campus

00:15:55 --> 00:15:56

once. I had a bunch of kids, like

00:15:56 --> 00:15:57

80 kids.

00:15:58 --> 00:15:59

And I said, I you know, telephone is

00:15:59 --> 00:16:01

you whisper in one ear, they whisper in

00:16:01 --> 00:16:02

the next, they whisper in the next, and

00:16:02 --> 00:16:03

you ask the last kid what they say.

00:16:03 --> 00:16:05

Right? So I whispered in the first child

00:16:05 --> 00:16:08

of the ear, Bob punched Joe.

00:16:08 --> 00:16:10

That's what I said to him, Bob punched

00:16:10 --> 00:16:11

Joe. And he's supposed to whisper that,

00:16:12 --> 00:16:14

and we went through 80 kids. By the

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

time we got to the 80th kid, I

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

said, what did you hear? He said,

00:16:26 --> 00:16:30

It travels. It takes nobody changed it completely.

00:16:30 --> 00:16:32

I don't know how that transformation happened,

00:16:32 --> 00:16:34

but somebody decided might as well spread.

00:16:40 --> 00:16:43

Now Rasulullah salaam is also getting worried, and

00:16:43 --> 00:16:44

the the rumor is spreading to the point

00:16:44 --> 00:16:46

where he's convinced, and Allah to test the

00:16:46 --> 00:16:48

believers sent Jibril

00:16:48 --> 00:16:50

to the prophet salallahu alaihi wasalam.

00:16:51 --> 00:16:52

Call the followers

00:16:52 --> 00:16:54

and make them take a pledge with you.

00:16:56 --> 00:16:58

So he called. The prophet told 1 of

00:16:58 --> 00:16:58

his people

00:16:59 --> 00:17:01

to make a call to gather all the

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

Muslims.

00:17:05 --> 00:17:07

When we were settled in our caravan in

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

Hudaybiyah,

00:17:11 --> 00:17:12

ayuhanas al bayah al bayah,

00:17:13 --> 00:17:14

al

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

bayah,

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

al

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

bayah,

00:17:18 --> 00:17:19

pledge, pledge.

00:17:20 --> 00:17:22

Time to take a pledge. Pledge means you

00:17:22 --> 00:17:24

put your hand in somebody's hand and you

00:17:24 --> 00:17:25

take an oath, that's what a pledge is,

00:17:25 --> 00:17:27

that's what a bay'a is, okay?

00:17:29 --> 00:17:31

The Angel Jibril came down, he's asking for

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

a pledge,

00:17:33 --> 00:17:35

that's the announcement, the Muslims start gathering.

00:17:36 --> 00:17:36

So,

00:17:43 --> 00:17:44

and we came to the Prophet

00:17:45 --> 00:17:47

and he was under a tree, and we

00:17:47 --> 00:17:49

took a pledge with him there. The pledge

00:17:49 --> 00:17:52

was to basically avenge Uthman. If he's been

00:17:52 --> 00:17:54

killed, we're going to avenge him. I know

00:17:54 --> 00:17:56

we didn't come here for war, but if

00:17:56 --> 00:17:58

if you kill an ambassador, it's an act

00:17:58 --> 00:17:58

of war.

00:17:59 --> 00:18:01

Right? And if Uthman is the ambassador and

00:18:01 --> 00:18:03

he's been killed, that's an act of war.

00:18:03 --> 00:18:04

We will we will retaliate

00:18:05 --> 00:18:06

against that as an act of war.

00:18:07 --> 00:18:08

And so we will we will go fight

00:18:08 --> 00:18:09

with the Makans. And by the way, if

00:18:09 --> 00:18:11

you're gonna fight Makans in their own territory,

00:18:11 --> 00:18:13

most likely all all gonna get killed, which

00:18:13 --> 00:18:16

is why some sahaba said, this bay'a, this

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

pledge, was a pledge to the death. Others

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

said, no. This was a pledge to get

00:18:20 --> 00:18:21

justice, but it means the same thing.

00:18:22 --> 00:18:24

It boils down to the same thing.

00:18:24 --> 00:18:27

So and this this pledge will also be

00:18:27 --> 00:18:28

mentioned in guess what Surah?

00:18:29 --> 00:18:31

Surat Al Fatih. Because all of this is

00:18:31 --> 00:18:33

going to be recorded in Surah Al Fath.

00:18:33 --> 00:18:35

Right now, we're looking at the seerah sources

00:18:35 --> 00:18:36

and the hadith sources.

00:18:36 --> 00:18:38

Then eventually, hopefully tomorrow,

00:18:39 --> 00:18:40

we'll talk about

00:18:40 --> 00:18:42

how the Quran comments on all of this

00:18:42 --> 00:18:45

because it's a difference between when a Sahabi

00:18:45 --> 00:18:45

remembers something

00:18:46 --> 00:18:49

or the historian remembers something as different than

00:18:49 --> 00:18:50

Allah mentioned something.

00:18:51 --> 00:18:53

We should keep those 2 separate accounts, isn't

00:18:53 --> 00:18:56

it? That's divine perspective. So we're gonna we're

00:18:56 --> 00:18:57

gonna deal with that separately,

00:18:57 --> 00:19:00

Okay. The prophet takes this pledge. Now they're

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

ready to fight, because there's already been an

00:19:03 --> 00:19:04

attempt to kill the prophet

00:19:04 --> 00:19:06

and to stir up the Muslims. Remember the

00:19:06 --> 00:19:08

80 that came to start a fight? And

00:19:08 --> 00:19:10

now Uthman has disappeared,

00:19:10 --> 00:19:11

so they're ready

00:19:11 --> 00:19:13

to go get in there. Right?

00:19:13 --> 00:19:14

And

00:19:14 --> 00:19:16

the prophet told them,

00:19:18 --> 00:19:20

He told them, you are the best people

00:19:20 --> 00:19:21

on earth today.

00:19:21 --> 00:19:23

The Sahaba who took that pledge.

00:19:23 --> 00:19:24

Then he said,

00:19:29 --> 00:19:30

Allah, he said, by by the will of

00:19:30 --> 00:19:33

Allah, nobody who took the pledge under the

00:19:33 --> 00:19:35

tree, not one of them will enter into

00:19:35 --> 00:19:36

the fire.

00:19:36 --> 00:19:38

Not one of them will enter into the

00:19:38 --> 00:19:40

fire. K? And then,

00:19:41 --> 00:19:42

she had recited this ayah.

00:19:44 --> 00:19:46

The prophet shalallahu alaihi wa sallam, she recited

00:19:46 --> 00:19:47

the ayah. What about the ayah that even

00:19:47 --> 00:19:49

every one of you will have to go

00:19:49 --> 00:19:50

over the fire? In Surat Mariam.

00:19:51 --> 00:19:52

Every human being will have to go over

00:19:52 --> 00:19:53

it like a bridge.

00:19:55 --> 00:19:56

And he said,

00:19:59 --> 00:20:02

and Rusul Saisim recited another ayah. We will

00:20:02 --> 00:20:03

rescue those who have had taqwa.

00:20:04 --> 00:20:05

Right?

00:20:05 --> 00:20:08

So, and leave the leave the wrongdoers in

00:20:08 --> 00:20:09

it. Okay.

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

So now, by the way, where is this

00:20:12 --> 00:20:13

tree? This is one of the great wisdoms

00:20:13 --> 00:20:15

of Allah that they couldn't remember where the

00:20:15 --> 00:20:17

tree was when they came back. 1400 people

00:20:17 --> 00:20:19

couldn't remember where the tree was.

00:20:20 --> 00:20:21

It was pretty amazing.

00:20:21 --> 00:20:23

And one person said, I remember exactly where

00:20:23 --> 00:20:24

it is,

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

but I can't tell you because I'm blind.

00:20:29 --> 00:20:31

That was that was the wisdom

00:20:32 --> 00:20:35

of Allah. Because if Pakistanis went there today,

00:20:36 --> 00:20:37

I don't know if there would be a

00:20:37 --> 00:20:39

bigger crowd at the Kaaba, or a bigger

00:20:39 --> 00:20:41

crowd at the tree.

00:20:42 --> 00:20:43

You understand?

00:20:43 --> 00:20:45

So the one of the wisdoms of Allah

00:20:45 --> 00:20:46

is that

00:20:47 --> 00:20:49

the tree is gone. Because that would've turned

00:20:49 --> 00:20:52

into something else. People woulda had branches in

00:20:52 --> 00:20:54

their house. People woulda had leaves.

00:20:55 --> 00:20:56

People woulda tried to dig up the root.

00:20:56 --> 00:20:59

They woulda you'd taken the dirt. All kinds

00:20:59 --> 00:21:01

of stuff would've been happening because of that

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

tree.

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

You know?

00:21:03 --> 00:21:05

And so the and this is actually one

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

of the ways in which Allah protected our

00:21:07 --> 00:21:09

religion from falling into

00:21:09 --> 00:21:10

shirk because tawheed

00:21:11 --> 00:21:13

falls into shirk over generations.

00:21:14 --> 00:21:16

That's what happened with Nuh alaihis salaam.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:19

And unfortunately, at some level that still happens

00:21:19 --> 00:21:21

with the Muslims, Muslim go to the Kaaba,

00:21:21 --> 00:21:23

and the security people check the purses, and

00:21:23 --> 00:21:25

bags, and everything, right? But sometimes people are

00:21:25 --> 00:21:27

very good at hiding their scissors,

00:21:28 --> 00:21:29

and they will cut out a little piece

00:21:29 --> 00:21:30

of the hilaf Ka'bah,

00:21:31 --> 00:21:32

and then they keep it in their house,

00:21:32 --> 00:21:35

and they're like and then they make salah

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

and

00:21:36 --> 00:21:38

weird stuff. Why? This is shit too

00:21:38 --> 00:21:40

because we we didn't go to worship the

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

Kaaba.

00:21:41 --> 00:21:42

We didn't go to worship there. The Kaaba

00:21:42 --> 00:21:43

is just a stone.

00:21:44 --> 00:21:46

And then if you and people are hugging,

00:21:46 --> 00:21:47

the the Maqam Ibrahim,

00:21:48 --> 00:21:50

you know, the the they're hugging the thing,

00:21:50 --> 00:21:52

you know, that's why they made it spiky.

00:21:54 --> 00:21:54

Because like

00:21:55 --> 00:21:57

too many hugs going on.

00:21:57 --> 00:21:59

This is that's not this is the way

00:21:59 --> 00:22:01

of the people this is the way of

00:22:01 --> 00:22:02

pagan religions.

00:22:03 --> 00:22:04

If you notice pagan religions, they do these

00:22:04 --> 00:22:05

things.

00:22:05 --> 00:22:08

Right? And shaitan wants to introduce these practices

00:22:09 --> 00:22:10

back into Islam.

00:22:10 --> 00:22:12

And Allah did not let that happen with

00:22:12 --> 00:22:13

our religion.

00:22:13 --> 00:22:15

But some people are very adamant on bringing

00:22:15 --> 00:22:17

it back, so they'll bring it back one

00:22:17 --> 00:22:18

way or the other. In fact, there are

00:22:18 --> 00:22:20

places in in South Asia today

00:22:21 --> 00:22:23

where the name Islam is there, but all

00:22:23 --> 00:22:24

the practices are Hindu.

00:22:25 --> 00:22:26

The name is Islam,

00:22:26 --> 00:22:28

but actually it's, you know, what they call

00:22:28 --> 00:22:29

in Texas lipstick on a paper.

00:22:30 --> 00:22:31

Right? It's

00:22:31 --> 00:22:34

it's it's through and through with Sheikh. There's

00:22:34 --> 00:22:35

nothing about nothing

00:22:36 --> 00:22:38

like close to in it.

00:22:38 --> 00:22:41

They'll be doing to other than Allah, they

00:22:41 --> 00:22:43

will be waiting to other than Allah, they

00:22:43 --> 00:22:45

will be calling on multiple others to protect

00:22:45 --> 00:22:46

them and save them.

00:22:49 --> 00:22:51

All the things Allah mentioned that the would

00:22:51 --> 00:22:53

do, you can find, and those people call

00:22:53 --> 00:22:54

themselves Muslim.

00:22:55 --> 00:22:57

They're calling themselves Muslim. You can call yourself

00:22:57 --> 00:22:58

whatever you want.

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

You know, it is and filth is filth.

00:23:02 --> 00:23:04

You could spray perfume on it, it's still

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

filth.

00:23:05 --> 00:23:06

You know?

00:23:06 --> 00:23:08

And so this this is something Allah protected

00:23:08 --> 00:23:11

our religion from, and we have to protect

00:23:11 --> 00:23:13

ourselves from it. From the smallest of these

00:23:13 --> 00:23:16

things, Unfortunately, when the real religion disappears,

00:23:17 --> 00:23:19

then it's replaced with religious artifacts.

00:23:20 --> 00:23:22

That's that's the fact of it. Either you

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

have the real faith, the faith is in

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

the hearts. Right? The Sahaba had Quran in

00:23:26 --> 00:23:27

their hearts.

00:23:27 --> 00:23:29

Right? And then most of them didn't know

00:23:29 --> 00:23:30

how to read and write. And the ones

00:23:30 --> 00:23:31

who didn't know how to read it, sometimes

00:23:31 --> 00:23:33

they wrote Quran on a bone.

00:23:33 --> 00:23:34

Sometimes they wrote it on a rock.

00:23:35 --> 00:23:36

If you were there,

00:23:36 --> 00:23:38

and you saw Quran written

00:23:38 --> 00:23:39

you

00:23:40 --> 00:23:41

know,

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

you'd

00:23:42 --> 00:23:44

put it somewhere on the on the top

00:23:44 --> 00:23:46

and protected, put it in a glass case.

00:23:48 --> 00:23:49

This is what, you know, this is the

00:23:49 --> 00:23:52

ridiculousness we have done. And as a result,

00:23:52 --> 00:23:53

now the Qur'an is not in the heart,

00:23:53 --> 00:23:55

but at least it's in the rear view

00:23:55 --> 00:23:55

mirror,

00:23:56 --> 00:23:58

Right? There's an item in the rear view.

00:23:58 --> 00:24:00

There's a mini mic they have a micro

00:24:00 --> 00:24:02

You seen the micro You need a you

00:24:02 --> 00:24:05

need a electronic telescope to read the micro

00:24:05 --> 00:24:07

must have. And you keep that in the

00:24:07 --> 00:24:09

car because, you know, you you might get,

00:24:09 --> 00:24:11

bad transmission if you don't have that in

00:24:11 --> 00:24:13

the car. Or you don't have you don't

00:24:13 --> 00:24:15

have, you know, you don't have good airbags

00:24:15 --> 00:24:16

so you put and

00:24:16 --> 00:24:17

you know,

00:24:18 --> 00:24:20

like what what religion is this? You know

00:24:20 --> 00:24:21

what this is? This is the same as

00:24:21 --> 00:24:22

the Christians who put a crown in the

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

back, or they put a crucifix, they hang

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

a crucifix. You seen those things? This is

00:24:27 --> 00:24:29

this is it's it's these are the kinds

00:24:29 --> 00:24:30

of

00:24:30 --> 00:24:32

that Islam came to destroy.

00:24:32 --> 00:24:34

But you know what we did? We saw

00:24:34 --> 00:24:35

other people do this.

00:24:35 --> 00:24:37

We saw other religions do this, and we

00:24:37 --> 00:24:38

say, hey. They have that. We can we

00:24:38 --> 00:24:39

can have it too.

00:24:43 --> 00:24:44

The people told

00:24:44 --> 00:24:46

the people told Musa alaihis salam, why don't

00:24:46 --> 00:24:47

you make us a god like those people

00:24:47 --> 00:24:48

have a god?

00:24:49 --> 00:24:50

That's what they said. Though other religions have

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

it, we should have it too.

00:24:52 --> 00:24:54

They have amulets around their neck, we should

00:24:54 --> 00:24:55

have amulets around our neck.

00:24:56 --> 00:24:57

They tie things around their wrist, we should

00:24:57 --> 00:24:59

tie things around their wrist.

00:24:59 --> 00:25:01

They have temples, and they have saints, and

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

they have holy people, and they have dua

00:25:03 --> 00:25:04

to them, and they are We should have

00:25:04 --> 00:25:05

that too much, what's wrong with it?

00:25:06 --> 00:25:07

You know?

00:25:07 --> 00:25:10

And so we adopted so many of these

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

practices

00:25:11 --> 00:25:13

and we are totally okay with it. And

00:25:13 --> 00:25:15

the this is the the power of our

00:25:15 --> 00:25:17

religion, our religion is the religion of Ibrahim

00:25:18 --> 00:25:20

alaihis salam. And Ibrahim alaihis salam's entire

00:25:21 --> 00:25:22

the entire

00:25:22 --> 00:25:24

principle of this deen is to destroy idols,

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

objects.

00:25:27 --> 00:25:28

Objects are not sacred.

00:25:29 --> 00:25:31

Objects are the the deen is sacred. Allah

00:25:31 --> 00:25:34

is sacred. The message of Islam is sacred.

00:25:34 --> 00:25:37

Right? Today, the Muslims have more respect for

00:25:37 --> 00:25:39

a piece of paper that has Quran on

00:25:39 --> 00:25:40

it than the Quran itself.

00:25:42 --> 00:25:44

This is the tragedy of our time.

00:25:44 --> 00:25:46

They won't they don't care what the ayah

00:25:46 --> 00:25:46

says.

00:25:47 --> 00:25:49

You don't care what the ayah says. You

00:25:49 --> 00:25:51

don't care what the Quran is saying, but

00:25:51 --> 00:25:53

you care that it's on a piece of

00:25:53 --> 00:25:54

paper, you should put it should I should

00:25:54 --> 00:25:56

I burn it? Should I rip it? This

00:25:56 --> 00:25:57

is the concern.

00:25:58 --> 00:25:59

But you're ripping up its teachings in your

00:25:59 --> 00:26:01

family everyday, they don't care.

00:26:02 --> 00:26:04

You're tearing up the Quran with your mouth

00:26:04 --> 00:26:06

everyday, with your business everyday. You don't care?

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

Doesn't matter.

00:26:07 --> 00:26:09

But we gotta respect the printed copy and

00:26:09 --> 00:26:11

put it in a, you know, nice shelf

00:26:11 --> 00:26:13

and all of that. This is what we've

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

done?

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

Subhanallah.

00:26:15 --> 00:26:17

And just and I'm saying jokingly, it's a

00:26:17 --> 00:26:19

blessing of Allah that the tree disappeared.

00:26:20 --> 00:26:21

It's a blessing of Allah.

00:26:21 --> 00:26:23

Okay. How did that disappear?

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

Man.

00:26:26 --> 00:26:28

That there there would have been another going

00:26:28 --> 00:26:29

on around the tree. I wouldn't I wouldn't

00:26:29 --> 00:26:30

be surprised.

00:26:31 --> 00:26:33

I would not be surprised. You know?

00:26:33 --> 00:26:34

So,

00:26:35 --> 00:26:37

anyway and by the way, if Allah wants

00:26:37 --> 00:26:39

to preserve something, he will preserve it. Right?

00:26:39 --> 00:26:41

If Allah wants to preserve the Kaaba,

00:26:41 --> 00:26:44

which was buried under the ground for 1000

00:26:44 --> 00:26:45

of years, and Allah restored

00:26:46 --> 00:26:48

it from the time of Ibrahim alaihis salaam

00:26:48 --> 00:26:51

through 1000 of years of paganism, Allah can

00:26:51 --> 00:26:52

restore it, can't He?

00:26:52 --> 00:26:54

And when Allah wants something to disappear, He'll

00:26:54 --> 00:26:55

make it disappear.

00:26:55 --> 00:26:57

If He doesn't want you to know where

00:26:57 --> 00:26:59

the ashabul kahaf were, He won't let you

00:26:59 --> 00:27:00

know. You can go visit Turkey if you

00:27:00 --> 00:27:01

like,

00:27:01 --> 00:27:03

and you can go to whatever tourist site

00:27:03 --> 00:27:04

you want. If He doesn't want you to

00:27:04 --> 00:27:06

know where the ark of Nuh is,

00:27:07 --> 00:27:08

then you can go see some mountain top

00:27:08 --> 00:27:09

and say, Oh, it was over here, it

00:27:09 --> 00:27:11

was over If Allah wanted you to know,

00:27:11 --> 00:27:13

He'll let you know. If you wanna know

00:27:13 --> 00:27:14

where yeah. Jujal,

00:27:14 --> 00:27:15

stop trying to go to China.

00:27:17 --> 00:27:19

Try to dig into the wall of China,

00:27:19 --> 00:27:20

see if they're there.

00:27:23 --> 00:27:25

If he wanted you to know, you would

00:27:25 --> 00:27:26

know. You know?

00:27:26 --> 00:27:29

People trying to do a archaeological search on

00:27:29 --> 00:27:30

the the wall of

00:27:31 --> 00:27:32

and all this. Stop.

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

Stop yourself.

00:27:34 --> 00:27:36

You know? You know what hap what happens

00:27:36 --> 00:27:37

in our religion? 1, we go towards shirk.

00:27:37 --> 00:27:40

2, we become obsessed with the things that

00:27:40 --> 00:27:42

Allah did not mention for that purpose.

00:27:44 --> 00:27:45

You know, what what if if,

00:27:46 --> 00:27:48

I mean, I give this it's a silly

00:27:48 --> 00:27:49

example, but it's important for you to think

00:27:49 --> 00:27:50

about this.

00:27:51 --> 00:27:53

You know, a teacher is giving you an

00:27:53 --> 00:27:55

a lesson. Right? A business class, a business

00:27:55 --> 00:27:57

teacher. Right? And he's got years of experience

00:27:57 --> 00:27:59

in business, but he decided at the end

00:27:59 --> 00:28:01

when he retired, he wants to teach. So

00:28:01 --> 00:28:03

he became a professor after being very successful

00:28:03 --> 00:28:05

in business. And he's giving a lecture on

00:28:05 --> 00:28:06

business, and how to run the business. You

00:28:06 --> 00:28:08

know, where do you open your shop? What

00:28:09 --> 00:28:10

how do you choose a location? How do

00:28:10 --> 00:28:13

you decide if that's reasonable rent? How do

00:28:13 --> 00:28:14

you pick the right product? How do you

00:28:14 --> 00:28:17

pick the right sales strategy? What's your marketing

00:28:17 --> 00:28:19

strategy? This, that, the other. He's describing all

00:28:19 --> 00:28:21

of these things. And one student raises his

00:28:21 --> 00:28:23

hand. He says, so but what color socks

00:28:23 --> 00:28:25

does he wear every day? It's head.

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

This I mean and the other shoe is

00:28:27 --> 00:28:29

just yeah, but does the shoe and the

00:28:29 --> 00:28:31

socks match or, like, which which,

00:28:32 --> 00:28:34

you know, mix?

00:28:35 --> 00:28:37

And the professor is staring at this.

00:28:38 --> 00:28:40

What what are you asking me?

00:28:40 --> 00:28:42

I I just gave

00:28:42 --> 00:28:45

you priceless advice of 30 years of experience,

00:28:46 --> 00:28:48

business, and I gave you the story, the

00:28:48 --> 00:28:50

scenario, and you're asking me

00:28:50 --> 00:28:51

colors of socks?

00:28:52 --> 00:28:53

The the this is this is the only

00:28:53 --> 00:28:55

thing that came in your head.

00:28:55 --> 00:28:56

You know what that means?

00:28:57 --> 00:29:00

That student who's sitting there, their his parents

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

or her parents wasted a lot of money

00:29:01 --> 00:29:03

sending this kid to school. That's what that

00:29:03 --> 00:29:06

means. Because it's not that he's stupid, but

00:29:06 --> 00:29:08

his mind is in the wrong direction.

00:29:08 --> 00:29:11

He needs some mental readjustment before he can

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

learn.

00:29:11 --> 00:29:13

The Quran does mental readjustment.

00:29:14 --> 00:29:16

The Quran tells us, there were young people

00:29:16 --> 00:29:17

in a cave.

00:29:18 --> 00:29:19

Did Allah tell us how many?

00:29:20 --> 00:29:22

No. Just some people say this, some people

00:29:22 --> 00:29:24

say that. They're like, oh, some people? I

00:29:24 --> 00:29:25

wanna say it too.

00:29:26 --> 00:29:28

They had a dog? What kind of dog?

00:29:28 --> 00:29:30

Was it a chihuahua? It's like a fat

00:29:30 --> 00:29:32

net. Because that would have been really small.

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

I don't know.

00:29:33 --> 00:29:35

Maybe what kind of dog was it? Did

00:29:35 --> 00:29:36

it have spots on it?

00:29:36 --> 00:29:38

And there are in our history, some people

00:29:38 --> 00:29:39

who are obsessed with this question.

00:29:40 --> 00:29:41

There are people that are going to read

00:29:41 --> 00:29:43

the story of Yusuf and say, waasubawwil.

00:29:44 --> 00:29:45

So what happened with zulaikha?

00:29:47 --> 00:29:50

If Allah wanted you to know what happened

00:29:50 --> 00:29:52

with You missed the entire surah, and all

00:29:52 --> 00:29:54

you got left is zulaikha, what is wrong

00:29:54 --> 00:29:54

with you?

00:29:55 --> 00:29:56

What

00:29:56 --> 00:29:58

Quran we're you know what we do? We

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

read the Quran

00:29:59 --> 00:30:01

and we focus on everything that is not

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

Quran,

00:30:02 --> 00:30:04

and then we call it tafsir,

00:30:04 --> 00:30:05

our version.

00:30:06 --> 00:30:08

We're studying Quran. This is not Quran. This

00:30:08 --> 00:30:09

is a mockery of Allah's book.

00:30:09 --> 00:30:11

This is a mockery of Allah's book.

00:30:12 --> 00:30:14

And this is the you know, the

00:30:14 --> 00:30:16

the reason I wanted to share these lessons

00:30:16 --> 00:30:17

with you about Hajj

00:30:18 --> 00:30:19

is because even the Kaaba

00:30:20 --> 00:30:21

even the Kaaba. When I when I went

00:30:21 --> 00:30:23

to, I I try not to go too

00:30:23 --> 00:30:25

much to to Umrah,

00:30:25 --> 00:30:26

because it's a mix of reasons. I went

00:30:26 --> 00:30:27

to Hajj once. I probably won't go to

00:30:27 --> 00:30:29

Hajj again if, you

00:30:29 --> 00:30:31

know, I have my own reasons. But when

00:30:31 --> 00:30:32

I go to Umrah,

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

it hurts.

00:30:34 --> 00:30:36

It just hurts. Well, when I say people

00:30:36 --> 00:30:37

doing and taking selfies,

00:30:39 --> 00:30:40

You're there,

00:30:41 --> 00:30:43

and you're still worshiping your own image.

00:30:45 --> 00:30:45

That's

00:30:46 --> 00:30:47

that's how I call it. I know I

00:30:47 --> 00:30:49

know some people are offended by that. I

00:30:49 --> 00:30:49

don't care.

00:30:50 --> 00:30:53

I I don't care. You're in Allah's house

00:30:53 --> 00:30:56

or you're supposed to forget that the outside

00:30:56 --> 00:30:58

world exists. If Allah wanted you to be

00:30:58 --> 00:30:59

interested in the world, when you come to

00:30:59 --> 00:31:01

his house, he would have put the Kaaba

00:31:01 --> 00:31:02

in Hawaii.

00:31:03 --> 00:31:05

He would've put it in California. Nicer weather.

00:31:06 --> 00:31:08

He would've put it in some resort island.

00:31:08 --> 00:31:09

He put it in the middle of a

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

desert.

00:31:10 --> 00:31:12

Not a tree grows there, man.

00:31:12 --> 00:31:15

Burning heat. What is he telling you? Forget

00:31:15 --> 00:31:17

the world and come here.

00:31:17 --> 00:31:19

Don't come here to be a tourist.

00:31:20 --> 00:31:21

Don't come here for yourself.

00:31:21 --> 00:31:22

Come here for your

00:31:25 --> 00:31:27

We come answering your call. You're dressed in

00:31:27 --> 00:31:29

the clothes you're gonna be buried in.

00:31:30 --> 00:31:31

You're dressed you're rehearsing

00:31:32 --> 00:31:34

when we're standing in front of Allah in

00:31:34 --> 00:31:35

the haram. You know what?

00:31:36 --> 00:31:39

You know what that is. Right? That's a

00:31:39 --> 00:31:41

convention every year which is a rehearsal for

00:31:41 --> 00:31:42

judgment day.

00:31:42 --> 00:31:44

Because we're gonna stand in front of Allah

00:31:44 --> 00:31:46

on judgment day. And you're going there, and

00:31:46 --> 00:31:48

you're like, yeah. I'm at the Kaaba right

00:31:48 --> 00:31:49

now. Check this out.

00:31:50 --> 00:31:51

Make dua for me guys.

00:31:56 --> 00:31:58

You don't need idols to worship anymore. You

00:31:58 --> 00:32:00

you yourself is enough.

00:32:01 --> 00:32:02

Mhmm. The worship of self the worship of

00:32:02 --> 00:32:03

selfie is the

00:32:12 --> 00:32:14

Have you seen someone who takes their god

00:32:14 --> 00:32:16

and did did takes their own feelings and

00:32:16 --> 00:32:17

turns them into their god?

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

That's what we've done with this religion.

00:32:20 --> 00:32:22

But it it deeply hurts. So what you

00:32:22 --> 00:32:23

know, when you go

00:32:24 --> 00:32:25

when if you get a chance to go

00:32:25 --> 00:32:27

to Allah's house, I want you to remember

00:32:27 --> 00:32:28

these stories.

00:32:29 --> 00:32:30

I want you to remember the blood that

00:32:30 --> 00:32:31

was spilled.

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

I want you to remember the pain that

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

was that they went through. They weren't going

00:32:35 --> 00:32:36

on a tourist site.

00:32:37 --> 00:32:39

They weren't going to share their pictures.

00:32:39 --> 00:32:41

That's not what was on their they were

00:32:41 --> 00:32:42

going towards death.

00:32:43 --> 00:32:45

That's what and we get to go because

00:32:45 --> 00:32:46

they did this.

00:32:47 --> 00:32:49

None of us would be even have the

00:32:49 --> 00:32:51

sight of the Ka'ba if they didn't do

00:32:51 --> 00:32:51

what they did.
