Misha, somebody will Sidley Emily Waterloo Dr. Tammy lasagna, Callie hamdulillah salatu salam ala rasulillah. He was RP h marine. I'm about once again everyone Somali camara de la tada Ricardo in this final session that I want to do and trying to appreciate some parallels, or some moments in the life of the Prophet socialism that we see glimpses of in the life of Yusuf Ali Salaam as described and so the use of I'm going to try to focus my attention on one particular individual.
somebody that has a, you know, Thai relationship, a family relationship with the Messenger of Allah, and was in a position of power in Makkah, and that is Abu sufian was a fan, as many of you know, was the de facto governor of Makkah, and basically the man in charge, and was running things in Oregon was in charge. If you remember, even in the Battle of our hood, when the profits lesson, I'm retreated and headed up towards the mountain. He was the one at the bottom of the cliff, chasing, you know, through with his men, but messengers like that, and when he chased them off, then he praised the false gods and the idols that they had around the Kaaba.
And Linda Zola, Zola calm, we have reserved the female goddess that they believed in Allah Rosa, by the way, the feminine form of Allah as those of you that are Arabic students, and as soon as the superlative, like acabado and the feminine like listener and hostess, Alyssa. So Alyssa, the mightiest or the most authoritative female God, he said, we have an Ursa, and you have known that for yourselves. And
normally, even though they were supposed to be quiet, and not let them give away their position, or may have been responded to them to him, and part of that exchange, I won't go over that exchange. I've talked about it in some detail in our our study of the battle have occurred in certainly Enron.
But part of that exchange was pretty graphic, you know, the the bodies of the Muslim soldiers that were left on the battlefield, were mutilated after they were killed. They wanted to not just mutilate hums out of the laquan, who, like him had done, but actually others also. And he said, We don't normally do this. He said this from the bottom of the cliff, he said it to the prophets, I said about the sahaabah. Or, you know, my people are mutilating the bodies, I don't, I'm not taking part in it. But I'm not stopping them either. I'm not stopping them either. And there's a not as too much of a direct parallel, but I want you to get the larger theme. The larger theme as you see
something wrong happening. You're not endorsing it, but you're not going to stop it from happening either, which is similar, in some sense, to the larger moral decay of the brothers of use of holiday, Sam, who see one or two of them be ultra aggressive and say, kill him, or cast him off in a pit or, and others are just going along. So it's not everybody that has to be outspoken. Evil doesn't take place because everybody's evil. Evil takes place because one or two people are minority or evil, and everybody's okay standing by watching and saying I'm not doing it, but I'm not going to stop it either. Right. So that silent majority actually becomes the reason for the small minority to
perpetuate all kinds of evil. Right. And that's, that's kind of a small connection. But that's not really the connection I wanted to draw. The connection I wanted to draw is after the Treaty of Abia, there's a ceasefire. Muslims and the Moroccans are no longer you know, at odds against each other. And in this time in this interim period, while there is a ceasefire, tribes around the region are in hordes accepting Islam, huge numbers, entire tribes coming in accepting Islam, and the influence of the Muslims is increasing and increasing and increasing and increasing. And the other part of the clauses of the treaty is whoever violates the treaty. If any of the clauses have inter violated the
entire treaty, the peace treaty is considered null and void. And the corporation are really nervous about violating the peace treaty because they're no longer dealing with a skirmish or a small group that they met with in bother and a relatively small, larger group, but still four times lesser than themselves and offered, they're dealing with a massive union of people that have now become Muslim. They're the vast majority of the region now. So breaking that treaties greatly to their disadvantage, but it's so happened that they broke the
treaty and they didn't mean to some of them ended up in a fight therefore the treaties considered null and void. Therefore the prophets I said, um, has his full within his rights to engage in it in an all out direct confrontational invasion of Makkah. Right, so all bets are off. And the most of y'all knows this. Right? So he's kind of come to the Prophet size and pleading for clemency and pleading for go easy on us. Right and it didn't work out his way. Now, I'm fast forwarding, the negotiations have failed. And the one of the attempts at negotiation went like this. yada Sula. So this is when the profitsystem has already left towards Makkah, he's already on his way for the
invasion. What kinda Abu sufian been enhanced by the way I'm reading from sila to been a sham. And he's quoting him in his heart. wakad, Ghana, Abu Sufyan. lbnl Harris, Abdulmutallab in labor have to live in my opinion, mohila lochia Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam limini tilaka so they came into contact with the Prophet liasons battalion at the location of nuclear club. This is a location FEMA Bina mockable Medina is between Mecca and Medina
for tasa de la la so they requested try to get an access to maybe meet with him privately, for kalama tomaselli. So the prophesised alum, they basically made it to the 10th they're trying to get inside the wife of the prophet SAW from our mother on Salah, you know, she receives them at the door comes in to ask the prophets permission. Yasuo Allah make web Matic will synthetic messenger of Allah. So there's two people there. There's Abu sufian there, and I'll go live in a b omiya. a mill mohila is there which are both cousins of the Prophet from one from the paternal cousin side, one from the maternal cousin side. So
she says, the son of your uncle and the son of your aunt, your paternal aunt, and your close family tie, Allah the prophet SAW him said la hija de la hija. Libby, Hema I have no need to meet them.
This is not the Prophet rejecting them. But the process is refusing to acknowledge them right now. I don't want to hear it. I don't want to hear excuses. So it's interesting. The these were the people the prophets lie Salah was pleading with to consider the message of Islam. And they wouldn't have it.
And they were his his own family. And they were treating him like the other. And now they're coming to him pleading, even though he's not being merciless to them. But he knows this is not the time to be negotiating. I'll deal with them after the invasion is done. Right now. I'm not going to meet with them. It's a waste of time.
It's also interesting that in the story of use of how they said there's a time will use atheism is not heartless and is not ruthless. And he's not, you know, vindictive towards his brothers no matter what they did to him. But there's a time where he says, if you don't meet my conditions for like a de la comunidad de la qaboun you're not gonna get anything from me. Don't come near me. Right, there's a time to take a hard stance. Even if you mean well for someone. It's time to take a hard stance and let them know there's a line that's been drawn. So he says the Prophet says, I might ignore me fatica Lee as for the son of my uncle, meaning my cousin from the paternal side, paternal
uncle side, he humiliated me. Well, I'm not what am I even though it was sorry for whoever the caller be McCabe McCall and my other relative, he said what he said in Makkah, they know what they've said. Then he I don't have to repeat it. They humiliated me and they said what they said, that sounds like a parallel with the story of use of Halle Salaam. Like these are the same people that humiliated the problem of the Prophet Yusuf Alayhi Salaam. But now listen to some really interesting, you know, kind of turn of events in the Sierra Panama Canal Harbor, la he might be Dallek when the news came to Abu sufian that he refuses to see you will not be surprised young men
EU law and with abuse of young was his young son. It was a boy that was with him one of his younger children. Well, he had come on the trip with his younger child.
Allah La La then Nellie older arco de nada de buena yada some Belinda Habana fill out the Hata Animoto channel john
he says I swear to god he better give permission to me to meet with me or I will grab this hand of my child here and we will both go into the desert and we're gonna die of starvation and thirst
he better meet me because we're just gonna die
he's he's besieging the profit slice alum to go easy. Using Who? His child right? Sorry of yourself. Please let her brother go. Please consider our plea. He has an old father.
Please show some clemency
using somebody else to get your way to plead on your behalf for llama Bella Delica. Susana, well, it's interesting. When this news came, news came to the Prophet alayhi salam. The prophet SAW some Felder felt
Gentle towards them soft towards them. So Medina Allahumma Dalai Lama, so he gave them permission and they came in and they accepted Islam. Okay, that's the summary version. There's a detailed version, which I'll get to in a second. But it's interesting after accepting Islam,
Abu sufian made us articulate poetic man. So he actually made an ashida poem about his journey to Islam. It's a long poem. But there are some things in this poem that kind of stuck out to me as I was reading it. Having been studying the story of Yusuf Ali Salaam
hadn't he hadn't read NFC whether NEMA Allah human or what two kilometer ready?
Someone, a guide has finally given me guidance and it wasn't myself.
And he got to me, along with Allah, meaning Allah guided me and along with him, this guide guided me and it wasn't myself. And it's someone that I harmed. And I got in the way of, and I obstructed every possible chance I got.
I heard him in every possible way that I could. And he's the one who guided me selects the story of use of Elisa.
And then he says, also do a hidden and Mohammadi
I stopped myself and I stopped him. And I have created obstacles, struggling against what how much at every turn,
while we're in them, and does it mean mohammedi and I'm being called by Mohammed? I'm being invited, or actually, I'm being considered family of Muhammad, even though I don't want to ever acknowledge that connection. I was embarrassed to be a family member of Muhammad. So when people said Why are you being like this is your family member? I never want to take note while I'm antacid.
You remember the story of Yusuf Alayhi Salam when the accusation of theft came about? They didn't even attribute him to be their own brother. They said Hola, hooven COVID a brother of his use to steal they didn't even attribute themselves to him. They had a disconnection you know. And when they said the use of who are who have been Amina use of and his brother
are more beloved to father not use of and our youngest brother, or our youngest two brothers, Yousef and his brother are not attributed to themselves. Like they have this like it's beneath them to attribute use of and is rather Binyamin to themselves. And here you have also fion declaring that I was to above acknowledging the family tie I have with Muhammad there was a time then he describes his brother in who are his brother in the kurush. Right? Look at his comment about him. And I want you to as I as you think about his comment about them. I want you to think about how that might be a comment about the brothers of use of right
Houma home lm Jacobi how home they are, how they are. They are what they are. They're stubborn. And whoever says something they don't want to hear my lemmya Malema called me how our home. We're in Canada in ulam, where you find nobody.
Whoever speaks against their whims. Even if this is a person of great vision that are in he will be blamed. And he will be considered insane.
I thought this. I'm pretty sure it was if you're not thinking about the story of us.
But I am.
It's interesting words, if he's a person of vision, it's interesting in and there's an interesting literary play in the story of use of holism that the person of vision in the family is Yahoo, even though he's lost his vision. And every time he speaks, even though he's the one speaking the truth, they don't want to hear what he has to say. So they blame him and you're still on your old confusion. ulam and then eventually he even says Lola into funny Dune, even though you're gonna call me insane to funny Dune, here in Canada, Ian ulam where you find nobody, even if a person has the right you know, has the right vision. He is blamed and considered insane. They are the way they are.
They're so stubborn. When someone writes something, they don't want to hear it. They consider him insane. They're the ones insane. They consider him insane.
Like, that's like spot on the story of use of Islam. And he's admitting all of this, like, this is what and by the way, it's interesting, right? He's like, my brothers are like this. This is what we were. This is who I represent. And it's like, is he like against them? Is he with them? Is he abandoning them he says in the next slide, even though I wasn't gonna I wasn't planning on doing the next time with you legally or via homeowners to be law in my home. llamada equally, Makati, Morocco Milan, equally Makati. I wanted to please them. I wanted to go along with them even though I'm not
I'm not loyal to them anymore. I'm not stuck with them anymore. But so long as I wasn't in every Asian I went the way they went, I just went with the flow, didn't the brothers go with the flow? Right.
So he's almost presenting an excuse for himself. So though i thought was an interesting bit of wording that reflects itself in the experience of use of a salon with his brothers.
Another interesting place to zoom in on is, in fact, there's a pretty epic story, I'll paraphrase the story, because the reading is this actually, this is this reading got me interested into
stuff to look forward to, you know, for myself, for my own studies and doing I've read this a long time ago, but one of my goals in child lies to maybe read, seriously been a sham. with you guys. Well, hopefully, my students actually like to read the Arabic text and then translated the whole way and kind of read through the whole thing. Because there are some wonderful CLR series in English available, there's some really good work that's been done, like especially Dr. Yasaka, these work is pretty amazing. It's a lot of work that's been put into it from a Quranic studies student point of view, what I what he's done, I think, is extremely valuable, because he's simplified and really
elaborated at an academic level, a lot of the incidents and analysis that are involved in the CLR. So it's priceless for that reason. But from an Arabic and Quranic studies, student point of view, I think another dimension is necessary, which is to go to the original texts, whatever narrations are found, and actually explore the Arabic of those texts, too. And then discuss them at some length. So it's, it's cool to say a Buddha has said this and say that in English, and also if he answered this, and this one said this, but let's go to the Arabic and hear what they said, feel what they said, and then translate what they said, is, in my experience, whatever part of the clo I've zoomed in on, and
try to do that has been the most enriching experience, even though I knew the events before I had read about them and studied them before. But that engagement actually brought a lot of those incidents to life in a different way for me, so I'm hoping to do that and chill out on one of the things I hope I'm hoping to do with with students and maybe even record that stuff when the time comes in. But anyway, let's go on with this part. So I'll summarize the episode for you. This is some more detail I bustled. The Allahu anhu is the uncle of the Prophet size on him. he now knows that the prophesize time is about to invade Mecca, and 1000s upon 1000s, the legions have now
joined, and they're set up camp in the desert, they've left Morocco, they've left towards Morocco already, so it's coming. Abbas knows that if they make it to Makkah, and the mccanns are too, they have too much pride. Right? It's better that they get humbled before the clash happens. So it's better that I create a scenario in which they surrender themselves. They humble themselves. Because if the Prophet reaches there, and they underestimate him, they're gonna get destroyed. A lot of people are gonna die. So I better get word out to them. Mohamed is coming. There's no way nothing you can do about it. You need to surrender if you know what's good for you. So even though the
prophets I saw them is not getting word out to them, Ibis is hoping somehow somewhere can get out to them. Okay. Anyway, so he's and he's on the, because he's the uncle of the prophecy show them and he's close to the prophecy. So he was actually on the profits mule.
He was on the profits meal. So the problem is like, you know, I would describe it today as the presidential motorcade, right? Everybody knows that's the President's vehicle. So we know where to throw tomatoes. But in the old days, everybody knows that's the king's horse, or that's the king's meal, or that's the messengers meal, you understand. And that's the one that he's writing. So, as he's writing, he runs into Abu sufian. And Abu Sufyan is overlooking this massive endless field of fire tents, you know, tents and fires laid out, right? And he's looking at it like, is this the beginning of judgment day or hell or something? Why is there an endless fire? I've never seen a fire
like this. Who is this? And he's in shock. He runs into a bus. And by the way, that's the governor of Makkah, right? The chief architect of the last two wars, three wars against the Muslims. He's the general and he wants to meet with the eight. Now he sees that the Muslims are coming. And our boss says your best bet is to surrender. But how is he going to surrender? How is he going to enter the Muslim camp and walk right in? He's the enemy General, he'll get killed by any random soldier. So he says, I have an idea. Just sit on the back of my meal, because that's the Prophet's meal. It has security clearance it can get through and just keep your head down, cloaked up whatever, nobody will
see you. I'll get you to the profit and you can accept Islam or you can present your case to him. I was a fan gets on the back. They're going through they go tribe after tribe Manila, calm. Who is that? Who's that passing by? Because soldiers will check right? Well, that's a boss and that's the babyletto suhaila. That's the mule belonging to the prophets. I sent him Oh, he's authorized. Keep
Good they're not gonna question Who's with you if you have high security clearance until they get to our model The law
also says that I bought Who's that with you? And I can help with I gotta read this to you so epic
Where is it?
mannahatta will camellia Filmora so I had to borrow to be naughty This is a boss himself until I pass by the fire warmer summers by my campfire right takamaka is roses camellia and he stood up and checked wasn't enough for him to sit and do just about no I'm going to extend up and do a proper check for the boss of yarn.
And when he saw boots on the back of the beast
I do we
have an enemy Alhamdulillah Allah we can I mean cabbie lady
Alhamdulillah who made it possible for me to get to you with no treaty and no promise to keep you safe because the peace treaty meant I can't kill you right Alhamdulillah there is no treaty and you're right here. Thank you Allah.
Like this is a robotic for me. You
do not pursue the law, Barack Obama so but he's he wants to kill him but he's gonna seek the profits permission first. So he wants to rush to the profit slice of the campus nearby rush to the profit slice of them and get there before Mousavian gets there. One for defense reasons but the other he knows he's not going to attack him. But to get the author's jasola Can I kill an enemy
but but might not even tell them who it is? Can I can I see an enemy can I kill him? Yes. Okay, kill. Oh, by the way that was Yeah.
We don't know what cuz he's gonna do what he's gonna do. And when as he's running towards the camp, he says Basile deola who says what a captain Bala and I've pushed the I kicked the the mule you know, you kick the sides of the animal like western movies like right so now there's a race going on between a mule with two people on it and our little yellow horn who towards the camp of the prophets lays out for us to be martyrs people who do
these are not my words. These are the words of Abbas of the learner, he says and my mule beat him the way a slow animal would beat a slow man
so he considers the slow and he kind of threw that jab in there little bit anyway whatever happens happens they make it other camp seconds apart from each other on what he's saying. Come on, let me just kill him. Our boss is putting his hand on the head of abou Sophia on like a like a goat he just brought in and saying nobody will. Nobody will talk to him except me. So like I brought him here. Just give him a chance to speak right so the problem is I saw and almost says No no no, let's just end this right now. I got my sword with me let's just deal with this problem. And the prophecy is I'm says enough on both sides for you so he says have your your boss click for either Spectre 13 v.
Bus enough. Take him to your camp. And in the morning Bring him to me. So he's kind of squashes the conversation at the time. So Alexa them and they're gonna come in the morning. All right. So they come from Amara hora, sola Salam. Next morning listen to this way Hakka Sofia and come on Amazon. What's wrong with Josefa way hacker would be literally translated whoa until you abuse of yarn. But ain't nobody understand what happened to you in 2020. Almost 2021 volente you you ever said that anybody? You know what that means? What is wrong with you? Open Source yarn. We have a soufiane alum Neela and Allah and Allah Allah hi llama. Isn't in a time for you now to know that there is no one
to be worshipped except Allah
is not yet time for you. As India dawned on you,
I love you until Me, me and my mother and father be sacrificed for you.
And that's These are the words you say for someone that you're giving your loyalty to. So he's expressing his humility and loyalty to it. Also last Isilon ma maka, maka well solokha
You are so forbearing you have such amazing patience. You're so noble.
You're so mindful of family ties.
how incredibly mindful of Tim. He's complimenting the prophesies, really patience, dignity, family ties, all the things you violated.
By the way, is that what the brothers of use of are hoping for when they come back to you serve?
You should be dignified with us. You should you observe family ties. You're generous you're noble, right?
Well law he could volunteer
Anima Holla Holla Holla Holla katakana Anisha and back, you know, if I still believe that there was any other God other than Allah, then it would have helped me until, until this point I wouldn't be in this situation.
I have been humbled by circumstances to believe there's only one God. I've been humbled to believe those gods that I praised have no power. I've been I've been brought to humility. So it's the humbling circumstances that brought him to faith. Is that a parallel with the brothers of use of it's the humbling circumstances that are bringing them back to Faith to recognize Lacan sharika lahu under their words, exactly. laqad thorac Allahu Elena. Allah has preferred you over us. Allah has given you power over us. Allah has given you advantage over us, meaning Allah favored you is proof that allies on your side.
Anyway, the prophets Listen, here's this and it's not enough. He says, Wait a second. Come on. I was a fan.
And let me ilica and Darla Neil sudwala Isn't it time for you to know now that I'm a less messenger
until Mima llama kawakawa, Osaka, me, my mother and father be slaughtered for you if the need came for it. how incredibly patient and forbearing you are, how honorable you are. What an incredible sense of family ties you have a Mojave, we're lucky enough enough see Manhattan and Shia. But when it comes to accepting you as a messenger, there's still some a little something I'm not sure about. I'm not totally convinced yet. not totally convinced. Now, this might even offer us an insight into what the profit use of did at a salon, but I'll get to that connection in a bit. So he's saying that he's not entirely sure. Our boss turns to him and says, Listen, you want to have your pride right
now? I can't protect your neck anymore. Either you surrender. Now accept Islam or suffer the consequences is up to you?
Because you are the enemy you came here. I don't know what you were expecting to come here for. If you wanted to go fight, you could have gone fight. Right? So he accepts Islam. And then we read that poem that we read, or piece of that poem, right? So that this is the more zoomed in part of that same story. Now,
here's the thing,
when he took Islam
for the Shahada, Shahada, officially the Shahada and Huck for Islam, so he testified to the truth accepted Islam I busted called to Yasuo Allah. I told the Messenger of Allah Inaba, Sophia Allah Julian you humble Fokker, he's a man of pride messenger of Allah. He was the governor of Makkah, he was a man of pride. But Allah Who shall give him something like a token some this feat is broken pride a little bit like dignify him someone
but now I'm he said yes, Mandela, Dharavi, Sophia and for her I mean, whoever enters when we invade Mecca, whoever enters the home of hobo Sophia is safe. Woman Alibaba Hua Hua Amina, whoever locks their doors is safe. We're not going to break doors down. There's not going to be any home invasions when we get to Makkah. Woman de Macedo, amin and whoever goes into the masjid, meaning the Kaaba, the Haram is safe. It's not you people tortured me when I was at the Kaaba, you beat me up while I was praying at the Kaaba us attempted assassinations while I was at Aqaba you through animal skin skin at me while I was at the garba now it's fair game no whoever enters the machine is safe for the
medallion sorry for color solo socialism. Now this is the part where I see a parallel Hello.
When he left when he when he was about to leave, so I was gonna go back to my car make the case right times people. Listen, I've already accepted a song better we all surrender. The Prophet said no, don't let him go back yet. He said yeah, but this will be medical body and the Hartman job.
He said, restrain him, meaning detain him at the the the the narrow part of the valley, near Central Java, which is the the mountain pass. All the armies have to go through the mountain pass towards the invasion of Mecca. So they're gonna, they can't you know how you can think of a large width of rows and rows and rows of soldiers. They have to narrow and go through this pass. Right? So you're basically going to get to see all of them as you're passing as they're passing. Right? And he says, He told
us had that omorovicza noodle, Allah for Allah Hi. I want him to stand there as the armies of a law passed by so he can see them.
So beautiful. The prophets like Selim, the commander in chief, didn't say I want him to see my armies. A general would say what a conqueror would say what I want him to see our military might my military might, what did Allah call all those believers? What did the messenger call his believers? The army of Allah.
I want him to see his army.
He needs to see it. He's accepted Islam here. Someone here. I needed to
Except a Sam here. But this won't get broken until he's totally humbled and overpowered. He sees the power of a lot of dominance over him. He's been in charge for too long. He's been running things for too long. He's used to being in control. He needs to feel that he is no longer in control at all. You're seeing a parallel yet.
Someone cannot come to terms with the wrong in their actions in their heart. Until sometimes Allah will show them how helpless Allah can make them against the one that they were oppressing. Us of was basically humbling his brothers little by little remember, until we they were rendered completely powerless. And then he exposed the truth to them. And because he was hoping that it would truly dawn on their hearts at that moment, right. And it's kind of the same tactic that's being used by the prophets. I saw them the same strategy to help Abu Sufyan come to spiritual terms with this new truth that he's declared. Yes, you've publicly declared it. You're now an equal citizen of the oma.
But I want you to feel it. I need you to feel it. So what happens lokaal murottal acaba de la la
la says I'm standing next to him and he says the tribe started passing with all each one with their own flags, because each tribe has their own flag.
conglomerate Camila Kalia boss Madhavi. Every time a tribe passed by he said about who's this?
Who are these people?
He is the governor of NACA, so he knows people right? He's in the know, like he knows people. This is was this. He said?
I said that's the tribal so lame.
Lame. He's the governor of Makkah. So he's not just speaking on his own behalf. But before I translate, he's speaking on behalf of a city.
What have I ever done to saline?
Why are they there watching the moku
I've never done nothing to him. My people have no beef with lame why they heading towards Mecca. So he's dealing with the shock of that. So moto Maru, Camila, Camila, then another tribe tribe passers by with their own flag Dr. Bosman, hola And who are these people?
Abbas says, Medina, he says a tribe of Medina for your cool Mali values arena.
What do I have to do in Medina? Why is he heading to Morocco what Hussein is here to?
So he says hatanaka to kabyle until all the tribes had done passing through Mata Mata Ravi, Camila, Elias aluna and her no tribe passed by except he would ask me, them to them to omit them to
is just dawning on him how overpowered he is, at this point, one step after another after another after another after another then finally,
for either about to be happy, as well to be happy. And every time I will tell them about each tribe, he would say Molly well, even if Milan, what do I have to do with the sons of these and the sons of God and the sons of those? Why are they coming? had had done more Rasulullah heafy captivity, captivity, hello Cobra.
Until the prophets I said I'm passed by with his green battalion. So his battalion is wearing metallic armor. It's got a tint of green in it. Okay, and they're, they're covered head to toe and only their eyes show. Okay, so they look like warriors ready to destroy, right? These are the Elite Guard of the profit slice of them. They're passing through now. The Elite Guard of the Messenger of Allah so
you see how things have changed from weather, right? Like, barely can we can't find swords and can't find a horse. And now the Elite Guard of the province lies to them is wearing unified color uniforms, marching towards Makkah. He's never seen anything like that in the region. Right? So he doesn't even know who they are because they're all messed up and they're all armored up. So collide nation, we're in NEMA para la Liga fertil. Howdy. Howdy diva, haha. And they say it was called Green. Because of the abundance of the metal, the way the metal was shining in the sun that it looked kind of green. And the way it was it was sticking out. So then there's this poetry about
that. I'll skip to poetry. Now. palominos Ha, ha Mahajan. Voila. And that elite battalion was made up of battalion was made up of people of Makkah. Mahajan and the Assad those have the process I'm in Medina. of the Allahu Allah. Yo, what are you ramen home? lol, lol hook or head and nothing can be seen from them except people have their eye. Like everything else is covered up, ready to ready to roll. I mean al Hadid
also Han Allah. He said Subhana Allah your boss, Hey, boss, man, how Allah Who are these guys? called Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam
Phil Mahajan, in Overland saw, he said this is the Messenger of Allah in the midst of the Maha Genie. And in the inside, you know, the people you expelled from Africa and the people you said are nothing and you're going to squash them. And about two years ago you're trying to come to the city to annihilate them. Yeah, that's them. Why did you decide you know, should move to Cali Lowndes Powell powerless small group of what are they going to do? Right.
So he says, Listen, these are the words of Abu Sufyan. Miley I had in Bihar Walla, Walla, Taka,
no one, no one will have any ability or power to come at these people today. There they are above reproach they cannot be attacked. They are invincible. These people are invincible.
And then he turns
He says what law he I swear to God, yeah, but for the ultimate nickname of our bus. Look at us Bahama. alquimia, Kolkata even he says, Man, the kingdom of your nephew that the kingdom of your your brother's son, because Abdullah was the brother of a boss right in Brussels. I saw him as the son of Abdullah. He says your brother's son's Kingdom this morning is incredible. That is magnanimous. He's calling it the kingdom of your nephew. Can you tell from the wording also, still, there's still a distance between him accepting him as a sort of law. The wording is giving it away, right? That's why wording is important, isn't it?
So he says, quote, listen to this, quote, Yabba soufiane
was affion. In New Buddha,
that is Prophethood.
This dominance that Allah has given, that's not kingdom. That's Prophethood. on Amazon, he said, Yes. Finally, in that case, yes, I gave
it that's from God.
He comes to faith. This, to me was a parallel with the brothers of use of Elisa,
who at the end of it all, when they saw the overwhelming power that Allah had bestowed at the hands of a helpless child,
the mighty Egyptian Empire at his disposal, and they feel like they're nothing. The Quraysh, who felt like they were top of the world feel like meaningless insects right now. Before the army that's coming at them. You would never imagine the governor of Quraysh saying about another Arab in the region, nobody will have any power over these people.
Who did they think is the greatest themselves, they've never imagined somebody greater than themselves. You can't imagine the superpower of a region or the people on top of Norwegian speaking about their powerlessness and the greatness of someone above them. That's not an imaginable scenario. And that's just happened.
These these brothers of use of honey salon, were not no spa, we were an unbreakable band, we were the We Are the group that overcomes is not overcome.
And they're the ones that say, look at atheletic, Allahu Allah. Allah has given preference to you over us. They said,
must send our Atlanta ballroom.
Our our families have been accepted with harm. Go easy on us. pleading for mercy. You see the parallel.
And when that all of this happens now, okay, we'll skip some pieces of the episode in the profits, lifecycle them and go to the address. Now there's this notion is considered weak, but so are many others. And there's a huge multitude of them so scholars generally cite them. And for the kind of connection we're seeking to draw, there's no harm in mentioning it. Anybody who's serious about their study of sea lice familiar with this phenomenon
the prophesy. Some said, this is public address. He's now in Makkah.
Alhamdulillah Allah De Soto, Colorado. Praise and Gratitude belongs entirely to Allah. Who was true in his promise.
That already sounds like the story of Musa Felice at the end of it all, called the Java hobby. hakama master made my dream come true. Right. And by the way, the prophecy Sam had a dream that he'll be making hij and unlimited true. And so the promise to the messenger was also in the form of a dream, you could argue, and that's been made true. When the who, and he hated his sleeve. Well, hazama zabala, who and he out he did away with all the different factions that were against him all on his own. How many people were against user? Was it one group? Was it just his brothers? Was it just the people that were trying to sell them as a slave was just a politician Master, the owner?
Was it just a ministers wife? Was it just the minister wife and the women that were with her?
There's not just one group. It's multiple groups that are trying to undermine use of and he says, Yeah,
he got rid of he did away with all the factions all himself. masataka Luna one
Danny asks the Qureshi question, what do you have to say?
What do you think?
What do you have to say? And what do you think? I'd like to repeat a question at the time of his great victory, Yusuf Alayhi Salam actually asked a question. The promise later on gets up there and he also asks a question, the question use of us was, allowed him to modify the use of our key. Do you know what you did with us evidence, brother?
Do you know what you did? And here he says, this also says, What do you say?
What do you think? Call of lessons is now kulu? Hi, Ron, we say
goodness, please. Whenever no hydrant and we're thinking goodness also a con Karim. We have a noble brother. Web neurocrine Karim. He's the son of a noble brother will cut the cord
cutters faster and you have power now. So you can go easy on us for India kulu comma, so he the processor says for India Julio kumbhakarna. Yousuf
so I say today, as my brother use have said
that the three Valley Coolio yo la Hola, como el hombre me, no harm at all. And no repeat no humiliation thereafter shall fall upon you today, May Allah forgive you. And he's the one who has the most loving care of any that can show love and care.
this is the concluding, you know, this citation of use of tying hymns being tied to the Syrah of Rasulullah. Salam, the dominance over his brothers and him even thinking in his mind, and as soon as I saw his mind, the ions have already been revealed. The it's already but he's in a moment where he can see himself reliving the legacy of use of it was beautiful, that this idea came to his mind.
This guy came to him and he said to them what his brother said. So he sees himself reliving the legacy of his beloved brother use of them and even calling him brother. What does that mean, when you call somebody a brother, when you have the same father, right? That's how you become a brother in this in this sense, and how are you his brother? Well, you have the same father Abraham on Islam.
And he was there staying true to Brahim la Salaam. And here you are restoring restoring the legacy of Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam. That's the, you know, I just wanted to show you it's not just the story of use of honey Salaam. The stories of the prophets in the Quran
are in many ways, commentaries and insights into what the prophet himself is going through. And the people around him are going through Salallahu alaihe salam, what are the long line how much money and that's an important teaching in Islam in our religion, because when we internalize that, then it helps us see that these stories, just like 1000s of years later, they were a commentary on what was happening in the prophets time. And the lives of the companions can also then become commentaries on what's happening in our lives. Right. So this is the current way of juxtaposing and superimposing events as timeless realities, we think of events as stuck in history. The Quran teaches us these
events as timeless principles. So he's changing our view of events. Events are like the events cited in the Quran, or like a formula. When you observe it carefully, when you study, it's what's at play in that event, then you'll see that same formula manifest itself in another situation, and then in another situation, and then another, another situation, and instead of remembering the formula, you'll remember the story.
You see, this is just like what happened here. Now, nowadays, at a very primitive level, kids do this all the time. people that watch a lot of TV, cartoons, whatever, they do this all the time, they're talking to each other, somebody says something and it reminds them of a quote from a movie, and they pull in the quote from the movie, right?
Because it's that's the scene are they pulling a line from the song when somebody says something, and they just kind of jokingly insert the line from a song, you know this, they do this if the boss they call this scenario and then pull it in, right and they drop draw from it. We have to be so immersed in the stories of the Quran that we begin to draw from them in our lives. We they actually become a Wellspring from which our daily life is an opportunity to pull in from the lives of the remarkable prophets of Allah and the remarkable individuals that Allah has mentioned in his book. They have come to life. This is why Allah says fee the crew come in it is your mention. He says on
the one hand, Vicarage Mattila, because the whole Zakaria
Dr. bahuvida, and how via the mention of the mother loving care of your master to his servants. Acarya starts with the word Vicar. So this surah is a vicar of the story of zecharia.
And it's the same word Vickery says V in this book is the guru calm is your mentioned, is as if a lie saying, I'm talking about zecharia. But at the same time, I'm talking about you. I'm talking about use of one at the same time, I'm talking about you. And the first way we were taught to see things that way, was through the prophet himself. So I saw them, because Allah is talking about use of and what did he do in the sutra, at the end, started talking to the Prophet, so I sent him because he wants to prophesy something internalized when he's talking about use of Hassan, he's talking about him to what do we learn from that he's not only talking about our Soul Cycle, and he's
also going to be talking at some level, about our struggles, our events in life, our adventures in life, all of them are going to be tied in together. So I'm, you know, in conclusion, I just wanted to say that it's been a an absolutely joyous journey exploring this one of the most beautiful souls in the Quran. And while I have been so fulfilled, just preparing for this stuff, studying for this stuff, and I'm grateful to socket for all of his contributions for sohaib, for his just priceless help, and discussions, and the difficult schedules that I put him through. And the you know, the emails and insights that so many of you sent me and things to consider and questions you asked me
that made me reframe, or consider points of view that I hadn't even explored before. So I'm grateful for the audience and their interaction on the work that I've been doing, since last Ramadan, to engage in this sort of study. But as this study came to a close, I can't help myself, I have this disorder, where I, when I'm about to scale, one mountain, I can't help but look at the next peak, peak a little bit and look at the horizon past the horizon a little bit. So I'm really excited about what's coming next, the concluding session on sort of yourself, which is what I told you is going to be a surprise, is on Monday in Sharla, and it's alongside Chef sohaib. And it's going to be
something I think you guys will really enjoy. It's really beautiful, and very touching. And I was really moved by it. And I think all of you will really like it too, inshallah. But when we're done with that, I'm going to take a little bit of a break, because I need to do a lot of immersive study and planning for the next adventure. And that is going to be sort of half, I put a lot of work into sort of I have already, it's been a few years since I did some of you were following that the work that I've done so far is already on being a TV about halfway through the surah. And I'm going to pick up from where I left off. So what I'll do first is kind of go over an overarching sort of
overview of what I did so far. And then continue from where I left off, some pretty exciting stuff remains to be studied in the surah. And some of the most unique subject matter from a Quran studies point of view. So some interesting things about the approach to studying the Quran will also come up when we embark on that journey and sort of alcohol. So I'm looking forward to that. I made an announcement some time ago that there's some other kinds of content that I'm working on some other kinds of programming and shows that I'm hoping to launch based on just the kind of feedback that I've been getting from you guys. So inshallah
hoping that some of those things come to fruition and you guys can see them and benefit from them. inshallah, so please make sure that those things come through.
What I In conclusion, wanted to encourage all of you to do is even though this series is over, and a lot of you, you know, would like to, you know, continue studying, even when I'm taking a break, I'm not taking a break, I've done way too much work for you to be if you need to just listen to Quran, and you don't have to listen to it live either you can, you know, and you can avoid the comment section. Or you can just listen to pick a solo, I mean, the deeper look, study, this approach that I took with use of this was my 48th solar
that I've done in this way. So I've done all of this I'm already I've done already 100 I've done an emerald already off hoogenraad when I feel cool and I've done a bunch. So take advantage of some of that work, there was a lot of lot of hours put into that for your benefit. Charla really that's what benefits me in the end is if you're benefiting, that's the agenda for me and his love blesses me to continue more, and to be able to refine and better. What I'm trying to do, which you'll probably see in the coming lecture series are going to be new guests, also people that I think are experts in certain fields that can help us understand this a little better. I would like you to pray for myself
and my family
that will help me be a better student of Allah's book, to have a better understanding of it, to give clarity to you and to everybody, and to actually even help explain the meanings and the teachings of our book to people who don't believe in it. So even if we're not trying to preach or convert them, at least they know what
The book is about right so our our responsibility is to try to make the teachings of our religion clear to all of humanity. And the best way to do that is through the books the religious primary source, which is the book itself, right. So, if we can make the teachings of this book clear for people, then whether they agree or disagree is the right that they have, but at least we did our best to clarify. Right Allah says Allah livina tabula rasa obiano not, you know, so they say in Arabic, you know, to convince somebody, right?
We don't have to lie didn't say to convince anyone he said to clarify to people, right, make make things right. Make the robot make things right and clarify.
For like, I would love to believe
that those are the people that will accept their job. So I pray that Allah accepts our Toba. I pray that Allah makes your journey into Koran and your journey into learning Arabic, his journey into memorizing put on your journey into bettering your dream, your gender journey into bettering your reading, flow your journey into paying attention, to fight your sleep, when you're engaged with Quran your journey into fighting your laziness, that all of those journeys Allah makes easy for you and your children and your parents and your just your loved ones. And that the light of Orion comes and shines on everything you do in your life. Every part of your life has, you know, nude in it,
because you're giving time to us book and I pray Eliza, which gives all of us that note in all of our lives. Thank you so very much for listening. I'm not going to give you an epic exit. Just a very normal one. I'm just gonna
take the stairs down
