Hello Vitamina when alpha two limits have been a lot more soluble, send them about a quarter of the code, Asuka Mohammed and SallAllahu wasallam on an IV he was so happy he was salam to Sleeman kathira. So Alhamdulillah I mean, we are now getting into a very unique set of people from those that welcome the prophets lie some to and Medina. And I want to actually start off by saying that next week in sha Allah to Allah we will be off in the nighttime I'll be out of town for one week in sha Allah and then we will continue the week after that. And it will be a treat because we'll be talking about Samantha Silla the Allahu Taala and who was one of my favorite people to talk about in

00:00:37--> 00:01:20

terms of welcoming the prophets I send them to El Medina. But tonight in sha Allah to Allah, we're talking about someone who's from the same genre of salon or the Allah Tala, and who accept that he doesn't go through the same process, the same journey. And this is a man who likes the novel The Allah Tada, and who is looking for a prophet of Allah to come, and who is sincere in his pursuit. And so we've talked about the unsought from an ocean of husbands from the two main tribes that were sick of the fighting in Medina, and ready to receive a prophet who would teach them a new way. And now we're talking about people who already were convinced in the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala,

00:01:20--> 00:02:10

and convinced that a new way was overdue, and we're simply waiting for a prophet to arise so that they could follow him and that they could support him. This man Subhan Allah is probably one of the most interesting and fascinating stories from all of the people of Medina that we will talk about. He is the chief rabbi of Medina, the chief rabbi of Medina, the most senior person from the three main Jewish tribes that existed in Medina, his name is Rosaleen Ibn salaam, and Al Hussain with Assad not like Al Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Al Hussein had been Salam, Al Hadith, Abu Yusuf al Islam, Ely, Al Ansari. Now, I have to clarify when I say this

00:02:10--> 00:02:57

law, Ed, I'm not talking about the European colonial state that was created seven years ago, talking about from Benny Islam in why because this man is actually a descendant of who you are. Nobody has Salam, and specifically Subhan Allah he's a descendant of use of it his setup. So the chief rabbi of an Medina, the descendant of use of it his Sera, from a tribe known as bamboo, Taino car, bamboo kind of car. Now, there were several tribes, Jewish tribes that had settled in in Medina, of course, at that time, it was called yesterday because they saw that the traits and the signs pointed to the profit arising in that place. So the description of the next prophet was that he was to arise in

00:02:57--> 00:03:50

that place. So you had a few Jewish tribes that settled that area. The three main Jewish tribes are been operated on by Luna, Leah and Ben will Plano car, okay? And he is the most senior of Bentonville, Kino car, Al Hussein ibn Salam, from the lineage of Yusuf Ali, his solo And subhanAllah, as these people had come to yesterday, at the time, of course, you know, you had many social dynamics that placed the Jewish tribes in that area, in a very interesting category. For one, you had an insecurity of sorts, from the people of Arabia, towards the People of the Book, the pagans in Mecca, respected. It's ironic because they rejected the prophets lie Selim with such with

00:03:50--> 00:04:29

such malice, but when it came to the Jewish tribes in the Medina, the pagans in Mecca, though they worshipped all the gods that they worship, they still respected the Jewish tribes, as learned people of Scripture, right as they respected in the Joshi, the Christians from Rome, they had a certain level of respect and honor for them. But of course, to them, there was no concept not just of the oneness of God, but no concept of the pocket of the hereafter. They rejected the entire notion of the ocular of the hereafter. But they still had this idea that these people were superior to them, that they had some sort of a scripture that they had some sort of divine revelation. Of course, even

00:04:29--> 00:05:00

the people of Makkah had some sort of adherence to Ibrahim, it has set up a respect for Ibrahim alayhis salam, knowing that they were from his lineage, but having absolutely no attachment to his religion. Also, the people have gifted him were largely the two tribes of an osanna husbands who are killing each other off, whereas the Jewish tribes were not really involved in that internal politics. They had some connections with them, they had trade with them, they had, you know, a very strong

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

On influence and yesterday in terms of the social life in terms of the economy of yesterday, but not so much when it came to the internal dynamics of these two main tribes of an ocean of husbands that were really killing each other off. They were still very much so respected and looked to in terms of the overall decision making and they were all about to gather upon the leadership of Abdullah bin Obon. Salute the chief of the hypocrites remember all of the fitna that will take place in Medina, you know, in terms of the hypocrites is just because of the love and obey Vincent who did not get his crown. He was ready to be crowned as their king. They were all going to sort of agree upon him

00:05:38--> 00:06:21

as the main man and the prophets of Allah. He said, I'm coming to Medina undermines all of that. So they're uniquely placed now. Amongst them are those who are sincere pursuance of religion, you know, sincere seekers of Deen. And they are devout students of the Toba and looking for this prophet of Allah. Amongst them are those who are looking for the power in that region. Because the assumption is that the Prophet will be from Bani Israel. And so if the prophet is from Israel either and that's going to solidify a certain power dynamic in the region, and Subhan Allah, you can see that there is a common denominator in all of those that rejected the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they all

00:06:21--> 00:06:58

cited one problem, not his character, but he's not one of us. The tribes and Mecca, said he's not one of us, Abuja, who the person who became the pharaoh of this ummah, who would acknowledge and private, he said, what he says makes sense, and it's clearly divine. But he's from Beto Hashem. And if we give him that authority, if we acknowledge his prophethood, then he will not have superiority over us, our beloved No babe and several turns this all into a dynamic of what that this prophet is coming, or this man is going to come and corrupt what we've built over here, but at the end of the day, he just wants to be in charge. And we will see when we talk about Sophia, on the Allahu Taala

00:06:58--> 00:07:38

and her mother, Sophia, whose father was from one of those, those tribes, you know, you would think he would be excited to see this prophet of Allah but once he realized the Prophet of Allah is not from the lineage of Bani Israel, he became right away a staunch enemy of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the end of the day. This was a power game. How do we exceed our ground our authority in a highly tribal world to this prophet from bento Hashem Abdullah Abu Salam, well, the Allahu Allah and we'll get to how his name is Abdullah Abu Salah is not just one of those who is sincere in his pursuit of a messenger of Allah, but he is distinguished in his pursuit of the

00:07:38--> 00:08:20

Messenger of Allah. Now I want to talk about him in Medina before the prophets lie some comes to Medina, he is known as the most knowledgeable man in Medina. Number one, he is distinguished by his number two by his character. So people used to sing his praises, they used to say he's the most honest person, the most pious amongst us, the most humble amongst us. So they had nicknames to sing his praises. He is a person who was known for engaging in honest trade. Okay, so he did not abuse his religious authority. And that's something that was actually very respectable about him about the low tide animal was that he didn't use the religious place that he had amongst them to give himself

00:08:20--> 00:09:01

a certain economic advantage in yesterday about the time. Instead, he used to go and he used to take care of his own gardens, he would pick his own dates from his trees, he would sell wheat and barley in the marketplace just like everybody else, because he wanted to make an honest living. So he didn't abuse, the religious authority that he had amongst the people for his economic benefit. And they said he was extremely lovely, very gentle, a very gentle person. And his day was divided into three, this is very beautiful Subhanallah, they said that he had a regimen of how he divided his day into three 1/3 of the day, it was in the synagogue, and he would worship and he would teach, so

00:09:01--> 00:09:48

every day he'd spend 1/3 of the day in the synagogue, and you'll see when we get to the story of Selma, the Allahu anhu, this 1/3 1/3 1/3 So 1/3 of his day was in the synagogue, worshiping Allah subhanaw taala and teaching the Torah, another third of the day, he would go into private isolation, and he would recite the Torah and study it, and do vicar and remember Allah subhanaw taala so 1/3 was public worship. 1/3 was private worship. And 1/3 was him farming in his date palms and taking care of his of his of his business, basically. So he had 1/3 to the public teaching in the synagogue 1/3 to his own recitation of the Torah, and 1/3 which was dedicated to his own economic benefit,

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

just working in the gardens and selling his barley and his dates in the marketplace at the time. And subhanAllah he was specifically, you know, attached to

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

In the verses about the coming prophets within the Torah, remember there are all these verses about a prophet to come. So he specifically had an attachment to those verses. And he used to study those verses and he used to talk about those verses. And he used to supplicate to Allah, that Allah would allow him to live long enough to accompany this prophet. Remember what aka the biblical scholar will the Allahu Taala Anhu in Mecca? What occurs regret when the prophets lie some comes to him is that I wish I could live long enough to be with you. When your people run you out when they persecute you. The love was salam ala the Allahu Taala Anhu How old is he? He was 20 years older than the Prophet

00:10:42--> 00:11:24

SAW Selim. So he's senior to the Prophet slicer. Okay, he senior to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and some of the narrations that he's about 10 years older but he's senior to the Prophet sighs I'm 10 or 20 years older than the Prophet slice I'm so he's hoping and he's longing as he's getting older, that Allah will give him the opportunity to see this prophet, the prophet that the sincere seekers in Mecca, ze the will the Allahu taala, and what I call the Allahu Tada and when others were looking for, and as this is happening as he is reciting, and teaching people about the, the prophet, he actually says that I had a feeling that the Prophet would migrate based upon what he

00:11:24--> 00:11:43

was reading in the Torah, the prophet would migrate to this land, but he wouldn't be from this land, meaning there was a hijra, that would proceed, the profit slice, I'm in this lens. The idea was that he would rise in that land, but he was saying it would come after his persecution, and his his own. So he says, he's now narrating his own story.

00:11:45--> 00:11:49

He said, When I heard about a man claiming prophethood, in Makkah,

00:11:50--> 00:12:24

I started to inquire about him. So I started to ask the people that were going to Mecca about his name, about his qualities, about his attributes about his claims about what people were seeing about were saying about him, and he said, everything I found, matched perfectly with what I was studying in the Torah. So his anticipation is growing, that maybe this is him not realize that, you know, though, it's like he's right around the corner and Mecca. He's waiting for some events to unfold in order to really test this, this prophet. Right.

00:12:25--> 00:12:33

And he says, Then I heard that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wa salam had left Makkah, and he was heading for yesterday.

00:12:34--> 00:13:09

And he said it I remember the people going out into the trees for months waiting for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to, to arrive at Baba. So he said, Every day when I was working in my palm trees, he said, I would sit at the very top of the palm tree and sort of analyze the scene, see where they were, with the coming of the messenger SallAllahu and he who was and how the prophets like Selim was going to be received. So he said, I was one day sitting at the top of the palm tree. And I saw the commotion.

00:13:11--> 00:13:17

And the Ansara started to shout out that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had arrived.

00:13:18--> 00:14:04

So he said, I shouted out just instinctively, he said, I said, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Two times he said, I shouted out to Kabir and who was confused. He said, my aunt, had an aunt by the name of her leader, Carly, that will the Allahu Taala and her she will become Muslim afterwards, said my aunt holida. She looked at me and she was confused. And she said, Hey, YA book Allah Wallah. Hello Quintus. America be Musab near Imran and he has Salam, cardamom masot said What's wrong with you? If you heard that Moses had come? You wouldn't show this much excitement? Like what is this reception because the assumption was that this is something that right now is relegated to the affairs of the

00:14:04--> 00:14:41

unsought this really doesn't involve the Jewish tribes or the others right now and in Medina, what is wrong with you? Why are you so excited? And I said to her a Hannah, I said to her Oh, my aunt, who Allah He, uh, who moves Abner Imran Ali his Salam, I swear by Allah that he is the brother of Moses. He is the brother of Musa alayhis salam Wa Allah Dini he and he is on the religion of Musa alayhis salaam, Bertha Bhima Bori Therby he and he was sent with what he was sent with. I swear by Allah that this is the brother of Moses who was upon his religion, and it was sent with what he was sent with. And she said a Sufi,

00:14:42--> 00:14:52

Oh, son of my brother, who had Nabi Allah, the kuna northborough. Anhu Yamato a Uberto. Not an ethicist.

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

Is he the Prophet? This is a really interesting description, especially when we think about the way the End of Times feels so imminent.

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

Is he the prophet that we've been told about in the Torah? There's an understanding that we've been told about a prophet to come. Is he the prophet that we have been told about? That will come right with the Day of Judgment following soon after him the hour following soon after him.

00:15:17--> 00:16:01

Remember the profit slice and I'm said that his sanding and the coming of the hour are like these two fingers. There's this much time. The prophets lie Selim. And the end of this this life, basically the Day of Judgment arriving. And if you think about the span of human history, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, until the end, Allah knows best but you know, there are profits and profits and 1000s of profits that come before and how many years of human history so relative to all of that the prophets lysosomes coming with the hour is very soon being the last messenger Allah, His Salatu was Salam. So I responded, and I said, Nan, yes, for carnate for DACA. Even so she said,

00:16:01--> 00:16:09

in that case, then I can see why and we accept as well. So Abdullah Salam Radi Allahu taala. And when he says that after that,

00:16:11--> 00:16:51

I went and I approached and what's beautiful about our beloved Mr. Romm is that he actually gets to tell us his story about you know, from hearing about the prophets lie some from far away to going and finding him amongst the crowd. And he's very vivid with the details. He said, so I went out to where the people were. And I started to go around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, WA, Salam Karloff to financee the Andorra la he. So I kind of cleared the way and he mentioned there is like this traffic around the profit slice on the unsalted we're so excited to receive the profit slice and I'm so I went there and I started to make my way through the people and I wanted to get a very close up,

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

look at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:16:54--> 00:17:42

And he said, For now a lot of to Isla which he he had he his salatu salam, I looked at his face out off to an Elijah who, Lisa B when she comes up, I looked at his face and I said, that's not the face of a liar. So you'd like before I have to ask any questions. Before the prophets lie, some even opens his mouth. I looked at his face, and I knew it was him. I knew that's not the face of a liar. And so he says that as I looked at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stood up to address the people for the very first time. So he's getting to witness the first Hotbird of the Prophet sallallahu. And he was Salam to the people of Medina. And he says,

00:17:42--> 00:18:29

What can I oh what a sheet into kandalama Be Here it is. Salatu was Salam. The first thing the Prophet size, and I'm sad a Yohannes of Shu Salam. O people spread Salam. spread peace amongst yourselves, while altering motor neuron and feed one another. And in one narration, while still our hum and establish your family ties, while solid Lu oneness, Sonia and pray at night while other people sleep tend to Hooroo and Jana, be Salam, and you will enter into paradise in peace. It's Pamela, this Constitution of Medina. It's very interesting, because you think about the first impressions here. Right? What tone is the prophet slice I'm going to set when he, you know, speaks

00:18:29--> 00:19:09

in Medina for the very first time, what's this man all about? Because remember, the unsought who couldn't get along with themselves and they were from the same bloodlines are welcoming a man with a new religion. And they're giving him this full authority. What tone is he going to set? You know, if you always watched the day of the inauguration speeches of the presidents, right? And the United States are always like, what tone is the President going to set? Right? What's he going to say? What's he going to set? Because that's sort of the it's no longer the campaign speech right? Now. It's real. Now he's in charge. So a lot of the campaign speech suddenly changes with the

00:19:09--> 00:19:28

inauguration speech. So what's he going to say? Now that he has the br Now that he has the pledge of all of these people in an Medina? And what's the claim of the prophets, like some of the claim that the Mexicans are making is that he's coming to divide families, he's coming to mess everything up, that his religion naturally, you know, ruins the cohesion in society.

00:19:30--> 00:19:59

And the first thing the profit slice, and I'm says, I've just said, spread peace. Did he say epsilon Dana, calm just amongst yourselves, like forget about the rest of them? No, it spread peace of Jerusalem. And while it's understood that especially amongst yourselves, right, but what are you bringing to your society, you're bringing Salam, you're bringing a sense of peace to society? Well, I'll tell you more, and feed amongst yourselves and of course, especially the poor amongst you, but not only the poor amongst you

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

You know break bread with one another, break bread with one another and especially don't leave out the poor the profit slice on one of the early narrations in Medina was on the profit slice. Some said the worst invitation is the one that the rich are invited and the poor are excluded when it comes to the feasts, right? Feet break bread with one another and don't exclude the poor amongst you and connect your family ties. I'm not here to ruin your families or to spoil your family ties. If anything, I'm here to strengthen them. The family ties are tied to the our Shabbat Ramadan to the throne of the Most Merciful whoever severs those family ties Allah subhanaw taala severs them from

00:20:38--> 00:20:43

the throne. So establish those ties, while Salo be late on NASA Nia

00:20:44--> 00:21:29

and all of that what's your spiritual energy, your tahajjud pray at night while other people sleep. Pray at night while other people sleep. Tend to Haruna Jana Bisola, you will enter into paradise in peace. Can Allah so talk about a first impression. I've been reading about him in the Torah. I come and I see him and I look at his face sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and is brighter than the full moon. And I see his smile for the first time and that's what he says. His words notch. What he is saying sallallahu alayhi wa salam and there is sick. There is a truthfulness that emanates from the face of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that is confirmed with his words. So he said

00:21:29--> 00:21:44

Subhanallah he said that after the prophets lie, some did that. Love them Salam was sitting close to him. So he asked me he turned to me it's tougher to La he he turned to me and he asked me What is your name?

00:21:45--> 00:22:23

So I said Al Hussein had been Salam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said you are Abdullah and masala he changed his name to Abdullah ibn salah. And Abdullah Abdul Salam Radi Allahu taala. And who said our beloved Mr. Lamb it is and I'm not pleased to be called by any other name. The Prophet slice immediately did that. Now, by the way, this is actually a very interesting thing. Why did the prophets lie Selim choose to call him Abdullah? A lot of times you'd have someone with it with an obvious bad name and the prophets lie some changes the name to something that is good, or a name that's inappropriate because it has some sort of divine quality or exceeds the bounds right?

00:22:24--> 00:22:50

Within a slain we actually don't know why the prophets lie some changed his name to Abdullah and it may be that the Prophet slice alum saw in him the qualities and the characteristics that he would be called by of the most beloved names to Allah subhanaw taala Abdullah Abdullah Abu Salam so the prophets like some said, You are Abdullah Abu salah. He said, so it is I am Abdullah Salam, I don't want to be called by any other name after this. Okay.

00:22:51--> 00:22:52

And then he says,

00:22:53--> 00:23:40

I said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a shadow Anika rasool Allah, what an Tabby Hawk I swear that you are the Messenger of Allah, and that you have come with the truth will cut the it Metalia hood and the Jewish tribes no and Nisa you do home? What do you say ed him? What are Allah Mohammed webinar Allah me him, he said and they know that I am the their chief, their leader and the son of their leader. I am the most knowledgeable of them and the son of the most knowledgeable of the meaning I come from a long lineage here of scholarship and leadership and respect. But the prophets lie Selim said, call my people FAS l Hemani. And ask them about me before they know that

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

I've become Muslim.

00:23:43--> 00:23:46

And then watch what happens when they know that I become Muslim.

00:23:47--> 00:24:27

You see Subhanallah what happened to the prophets of Allah Hardy who was salam identical and identical situation he stood amongst this people on a suffer and share a doula who, right they bore witness your Asad el Amin, you are the honest one, you are the truthful one. You're the trustworthy one. But as soon as the message changed, the description changed. So I'm the loving Salam said that the prophets lie some call of my people. And he said and I was behind the curtain and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there are Hamid Al Islam, he called them to Islam. And he said to them, you know that I am the messenger of Allah that's been described to you in the Torah, and then has

00:24:27--> 00:24:59

come to you. So accept this message that I've come to you with now realize here, this at this point when the prophets lie, some is coming to Medina, the prophets lie some is not making this a condition for safety. Right there's already a treaty that's being drawn up there are agreements that are being drawn up there's a diplomacy there's, there are other types of agreements in this regard, but the prophets lie some is invoking the religious part of them and saying, Look, you know that I'm the Messenger of Allah, that's been sent to you. Yeah, any foreigner who can I have not a home they know him like they know his son, their own children. You know that I'm

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

Prophet, you know that I'm that messenger and they refuse to acknowledge the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the Prophet sighs sunset for AU Raju and fie come Abdullah, Abu Salam

00:25:13--> 00:25:17

prophets lice, and I'm sad. Tell me about Abdullah bin Salam amongst you.

00:25:18--> 00:25:54

So they responded and they said, say you do not want to say you Dina What are and I'm gonna work no lamina the exact same thing that he said they would describe him as right so the prophets lie some is getting to know his position even more and this is solidifying it. They said the words that he said they would say about him so it's like Assad local Amin, our say it our alum, right. The prophets lie some has this experience. They said, He's our leader and the son of our leader. He's the most knowledgeable of us and the son of the most knowledgeable of us. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam. He said, For our Atim in Islam, what if he becomes Muslim?

00:25:56--> 00:25:58

And they said, hashtag Allah.

00:25:59--> 00:26:03

Mercantilism, they said no way, he would never become Muslim.

00:26:04--> 00:26:08

Right? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:26:09--> 00:26:50

He said, Yeah, Abdullah, Raj, Abdullah come out. So Abdullah came out, and he called them to Islam. And he said Walla, Walla, Allah de la ilaha illa, who in a communitarian Amana and now who rasool Allah wa Anna Hoja, and we have said, you know that this is him, this is the Messenger of Allah, this is who we've been waiting for. And he's come to you with truth for call who kidnapped and they completely denounced him and they turned their backs on him. So his own people were like, nope, not you. So that is strange meant that the prophets lie some God from His people in Mecca as sort of this this knowledgeable, beloved one sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but now he threatens the power

00:26:50--> 00:27:35

dynamics with theology is happening now with our beloved no salaam Radi Allahu taala. And who suddenly, you know, he now loses all of that good credibility that he had for all of those years, amongst his people. Now, subhanAllah, obviously, with this position that he plays with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I mean, it's, it's important to really understand the dynamics here, of what this means to have the chief rabbi of Medina immediately embraced you. Right with absolutely no hesitation, in fact, to come out and meet you in Cuba and embracing before the province lies on even built a message in Medina. He already had the chief rabbi of Medina, embracing him and embracing

00:27:35--> 00:28:14

Islam. So obviously, he's going to play this role in the Sierra, as a scholar, as a teacher as an adviser to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, especially helping the prophets lie some sort of navigate some of the social dynamics with some of the tribes that were in Medina. But Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed multiple areas about this incidence, and that's actually it's very significant. Subhanallah when you're reading about a companion, and now you can connect some of the ayat to this one companion, first of all certain off when Allah subhanaw taala says put out an item in a condom and in the law, he will have Haltom be he was Shahida Shah he don't mean Benny Israel

00:28:14--> 00:28:56

Isla Allah Mythri he for Armineh was stuck bottom in Allah hallelujah they'll call Malala mean, Allah subhanaw taala says, Have you considered that what if this is from Allah and you have disbelieved in it and a witness from Bani Israel even has testified to it and believed while you turned away from it in arrogance in Allah, Allah didn't call Nevada mean Allah does not guide a transgressing people. Now what was this? This is very interesting idea. Because sutra cough is actually of the last ayat that were revealed in Mecca. So the key fob here, those that are being addressed are the people of Mecca, as well as obviously by extension, the benefit in the lesson not

00:28:56--> 00:29:11

just to the people of Medina, but to everyone. Right. But the scholars say that this was a bush straw, this was a glad tiding this, this idea, actually preceded the actual Islam of Abdullah bin Salam but it was a glad tiding that Abdullah salaam would embrace Islam.

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

Right, and it would almost solidify what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was saying to the people of Makkah all along, that I am the Prophet that has been testified to by the prophets of old confirmed by the scriptures and from the children of this marina and his sunnah.

00:29:30--> 00:29:59

So Allah subhanaw taala is speaking to the people of Makkah and saying, If this man, you know, you have an insecurity to the people of the book to the Christians and the Jews, and the most senior Jewish scholar, the most senior Jewish rabbi is accepting the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and you're turning away from him. What is wrong with you? What is wrong with the way that you think? Also an ambassador the Allahu Taala and human others? They said the I answered earlier Emraan li su salah. They are not alike.

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

added to Kitabi on Mattoon ca Emma tune yet Luna IR Tila he Anna and Lady were homeless to doing when ALLAH SubhanA wa says that they are not all the same amongst the people of the book is a community that is upright there. They recite God's revelation throughout the night they prostrate themselves they believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala they believe in the last day Yep, we're gonna get them out of the way and hold on. I didn't want to get what you said your own effing Herat. They believe in Allah and the Last Day they enjoying good they forbid evil and they rush to do good deeds, what will our incoming assign him and they are from the righteous. So you'll find Mujahid and

00:30:33--> 00:31:12

others say that is speaking about Abdullah salaam that he is the primary example. Some of them said in the Joshi and some of the Christians that embraced the Prophet slice alone, but that many of the Sahaba and the seller would say look at Abdullah bin Salam. Look at Abdullah bin Salam or the Allahu Taala and who and how readily he was able to embrace what the prophets lie some king with and how beautiful his character was before Islam when he was a Jewish rabbi and how beautiful even more beautiful his character became. When he embraced Islam and became of the senior companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and also when ALLAH SubhanA wa says we are cooler ladina Cafaro

00:31:12--> 00:31:56

luster more Salah Coolcat Kefa Billahi Shahid and beanie Robina calm. Women are in there who are elemental, Kitab Subhan Allah, when Allah says, those who disbelieved they say to the prophets lie some you're not a prophet, you're not a messenger. And Allah says to the Prophet slice, and I'm say to them, Allah is sufficient of a witness between me and you, and those who actually know the Scripture, and Mujahid says, who are Abdullah Abdul Salam Allah speaking about once again calling to witness Abdullah salaam, whose knowledge of the Torah was so undeniable, right that he is a witness as well to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so he is many firsts here, right? The first

00:31:56--> 00:32:23

Rabbi that we know in history to embrace Islam, of course, some of those that were people of the book in the general sense and follow the way of Ibrahim Arnie salaam could be described as rabbis in some sense, but he's the first formal Rabbi that we know to embrace Islam. He is the first one to be testified about from the people of Medina in the Quran with multiple ayat and he is the first person of Medina to be promised paradise.

00:32:24--> 00:33:06

That is a an amazing distinction. The first person from Medina to be promised Jana to be guaranteed Jana to be from the machine of a Jana in Sahih al Bukhari under the virtues of the unsought the book of the virtues of the unsought there is a chapter Bab Manal people have the lovely ceramill The Allahu Taala and the virtues of Abdullah Salam or the Allahu Taala and who, and it is a Hadith from Saudi Arabia what Castile the Allahu Taala and who he said nurse and they are to be your sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, your Coulee Adenium Shia out in the home in Al Jana. In larly. Abdullah Ali Salam. He said that I have not seen a person on the face of the earth who the prophets lie some would

00:33:06--> 00:33:43

testify to him being guaranteed Jana like Abdullah Abu Salam or the Allahu Taala annual meaning it was on more than one occasion that the Prophet slice and I would say, This man is from the people of Jamaica, and the man is going to enter upon you from a halal Jana and Abdullah Salam, O Allah, Allah Tala. And who would walk into the masjid or who you walk into the gathering. So Sagol the Allah and who is saying, the shahada of the prophets lie some for this man was plentiful, and established. And he said, and he is the one where he he knows that atop the hill, he is the one who Allah revealed about well, Shahida Shah, he didn't mean any Israel and a witness from Bani Israel has borne witness

00:33:43--> 00:34:24

to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So that's one of the amazing Menaka one of the amazing virtues and of course, all of those habits are of a certain rank. And the prophets I seldom gives them all their virtues but to be amongst that group of people that the prophets lie some guarantees Jana, in their lifetime, saying it to them is a very special distinction. And the narrations of our beloved salaam or the Allahu anhu, after the prophets lie some comes to in Medina is a man who becomes as devoted to the Quran as the Torah. Okay, so he was devoted to the Torah and he became devoted to the Quran. And he basically switched his schedule

00:34:25--> 00:35:00

from the synagogue to the masjid the Torah to the Quran, and continue to dedicate himself to the prophets lie Selim and maintain the overall demeanor that he had within the within the Madani society and the narrations about him. Subhan Allah all surround the Quran, a man who's asking about the Quran, who's looking to become as noble of a scholar and has learned of a scholar in the Quran as he already was in the Torah. So he says that a group of the companions of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam were sitting and we were talking, and we said to the

00:35:00--> 00:35:38

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, lo narla more a year early headquarted Allah He that I'm in now, that if only we would know what of the deeds are most beloved to Allah subhanaw taala we would certainly do it. The Anzahl Allahu Allah Allah so Allah revealed to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said beheaded Allah He math is some our two and a half at all. Wahoo al Aziz will Hakeem. You had Adina amaro Lima taco Luna, Nana tough Hanuman, Allah revealed that whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for He is the Almighty to all wise. Oh, you who believe why do you say that what you don't do meaning if loss consistency avoiding hypocrisy and

00:35:38--> 00:36:14

being careful when you say that you're going to do something to actually do it? What's most beloved to Allah subhanaw taala is sincerity. So Abdullah Abdullah Salam, well, the Allah Tala and hold the narration continues. He says for Cara Alena Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, the Prophet SAW Selim recited it to us and then he recited it to Abu selama and then I will sell them a recite it to you here so you can see even the idea being recited and so it's a soft as a response to this group of companions that were that were questioning what is the best deed to Allah subhanaw taala another beautiful narration about him

00:36:15--> 00:36:34

actually comes from a Tabori from the next generation, place of not about what the Allahu Taala and who Rahim Allah, He says, come to God, some females did Medina, I was sitting in the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So put yourself in Medina now sitting in the muscles of the Prophet slice Allah.

00:36:35--> 00:36:52

Further Hello, Roger lune Allah was he I thought for sure. So this man walked in, and he had on his face the signs of for sure. Signs of humility. You know, subhanAllah when our beloved Mr. Lamb saw the prophets lie, Selim, he said, That's not the face of a liar.

00:36:53--> 00:37:12

And case of not bad doesn't know Abdullah salah, he's in Medina, sort of as a student of the companions, and this man walks in, and he says, what a beautiful face tranquility, humility, there's so much there that you can see of devotion just from looking at him Subhan Allah for the very first time

00:37:13--> 00:37:15

for call who has an agenda?

00:37:16--> 00:37:57

And he said the Companions then said, that's that man from the people of Jana. In one narration, it was Abdullah and Omar inside the bumalik, saying how the Rajon ad agenda, so two companions I've loved Norma inside the Malik and one of the narrations also authentic, said that men right there that just walked in on you. That's a man from the people of Jana. So he says for Salah carotene he prayed to darcars in the masjid. And they were pretty light meaning this was not at a time where it was a follow or proceeding a sulla he entered into the masjid at a time when it's permissible to pray. He prayed to short Rock has some Maha Raj and then he left parlor was a bit too who. So he

00:37:57--> 00:37:59

said so I immediately when I started to follow him I

00:38:01--> 00:38:17

felt called to Allah Who inna Kahina de Felton Masjid call ohada Rajaram. And as Jim said, I said to him, you know, basically Oh my uncle when you entered into the masjid, the companions the people said that man is from the people of Jana.

00:38:18--> 00:38:54

So he said Subhan Allah, Allah, he may and but he had an accord and Allah, Ya know, like he was in humility, right? He said, People shouldn't say what they're not certain about, like people should be a little bit more careful with their hastiness with these things, but places like okay, the Sahaba are saying this about you, what is your story and there are a lot of narrations, beautiful narrations like this where you had these, these converts that came later on that are following up with a companion saying, Tell me your story. Tell me your story. Tell me your story. So what is behind this confirmation from other companions that you are a person of gender?

00:38:55--> 00:39:41

So he said, So had de Fuca Mima that I'm going to tell you what it is that is behind that. He said about a Turo? Yeah, I had interviewed sallallahu alayhi wa salam. So I saw this dream. In the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for call sauce to her Ali. And I told the prophets lie some of the street now remember, the Companions used to come to the Prophet slice, I'm after budget. And the Prophet saw someone say Who amongst you had a dream. And if it was a good dream, they would share their dreams. So he said I shared this dream with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam God or a toucan and NiFi roba. I saw myself in this beautiful garden, that kahraman serenity while

00:39:41--> 00:39:59

holding it. And he mentioned while the Allahu Taala and holds expanse and its greenery and the beauty of that garden, and he said in the middle of that garden, was I moved in when Hadith was this metal pole. All right, so follow the dream. And the loved one said

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

I was telling the prophets like Selim, I'm, I'm seeing myself in a garden.

00:40:05--> 00:40:35

And in the middle of the garden is this pole is iron pole. So he says, As fellow who fill out, what are allaahu for summer, so the lowest part of it is pinned to the ground. And then the highest part of it is way into the heavens, I can't even see where it goes, right? It's high up there. And he said, and from what I could see, at the top, there was a odor one, there was a handhold.

00:40:36--> 00:40:44

So I'm in a garden, I see a pole, I'm looking up at the pole. And there's this handhold at the at the top of the pole, from where I could

00:40:45--> 00:40:50

see, and he said, then a voice tells me a sense.

00:40:51--> 00:40:52

Go get it.

00:40:54--> 00:41:14

So called to last thought here. Instead, I said, I can't get up there. How am I going to get all the way up the pole and grab on to that. So he said that this person then came underneath me, and basically ascended with me, pushed me up, and I started to ascend in this garden

00:41:15--> 00:41:58

until I got to the top of the pole. And he said, and I grabbed on to that handhold. And he said, for steel cuts too, and I woke up, we're in a hell of a body. And it was in my hand like I woke up right after I grabbed onto it. So I grabbed onto it in the dream. And then I woke up, like, finished my dream. And it's like I'm clenching my fist. Like I was just there. It's Pamela What a dream, right? And so I was in a garden. And there's a pole in the middle of this garden, a handhold at the top. And I'm told a sand and grab on to it. And I didn't know how to and basically an angel takes him up. I grab onto it, and then I wake up, and it's right after I'm holding on to it.

00:41:59--> 00:42:14

So I came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam. And I told the prophets lie some this dream, and the prophets lie. Selim was filled with joy. And he said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, tilaka rolda al Islam. He said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this garden that you saw is Islam.

00:42:16--> 00:42:42

And he says, with early killer I moved, I moved to Islam and this pole is the pole of Islam. What till calorosa rawa. To loose ca. And that handhold is the sturdy handle the law talks about it and sort of buckle right to hold on to a little bottle of whiskey. It's the handhold of faith for into al Islam. Timoteo Abdullah.

00:42:43--> 00:43:10

So he said to Abdullah, you will be on Islam until you die, or Abdullah. And one narration one time in Elgin, and you are from the people of paradise. It's Pamela what's the fear that these people have? Am I going to lose faith? Am I going to lose faith at any point? Right. So this was a Bush era. This was a glide tining to Abdullah in Sudan that you didn't just find Islam, but you will be on Islam until your death

00:43:12--> 00:43:57

and the prophets lysozyme guaranteed him. Paradise May Allah Subhana Allah make us amongst those that hold on to an underwater Wiscon and that die as Muslims, Allahumma and Amin. So this is his status amongst the Companions, he walks amongst them and they say this is the scholar from the Jews, the scholar of the Muslims, the scholar of you know who became Muslim, the Torah, the Quran, nobility before Islam, nobility in Islam, a person who the prophets lie some admires a person who you know, advises the prophets on the lie some on many things, and a person who narrates a hadith and and obviously, you don't just bring that methodology in that rich knowledge and literacy prior

00:43:57--> 00:44:34

to Islam and not excelling knowledge in Islam. So he became one of the great Redeemer of the Sahaba and one of the testimonies to that is a man by the name of more either than the Java or the Allahu taala. And more other than Joe battle the Allahu Taala No, of course being a great companion who was known for his read and known for his scholarship, my little the Allahu Allah animal when he was dying, and Murad is the Mufti of the companions. When he was dying, they said to Morocco, the Allahu Taala and obviously not give us some words give us a will give us something. So Morocco the Allahu Taala and who said sit me up. And what are the allow Tyler Andrew said, I tell you to seek knowledge

00:44:34--> 00:44:48

from four people. Find l seek knowledge and devote yourself to it and look for it from four people. He said, Abdullah Abdul Salam, Salman and Pharisee a Buddha and Abdullah Massoud

00:44:50--> 00:45:00

Abdullah was salam. Salman Pharisee Abu darda and Abdullah Abdullah Massoud we already talked about Mr. Little the Allah Tala and Salman and Abu Dhabi

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

There are the next to all the Allahu Taala and Houma. So these are the four men that I'm telling you if you want L, you need to go and dedicate yourself to them. And indeed that is what people would do, they would dedicate themselves to them. Abdullah bin Salam will the Allah Tala and who had two sons that were born to him in Islam, Yusuf and Mohammed Yusuf and Mohammed is so beautiful Pamela so he's a descendant of use of it his Salaam and his first son is Yousef. So he is Abu Yusuf Abdullah salaam, and his second son is Mohammed. And both of them became scholars of the deen and had children that were scholars of the deen and so you will find narrations in a hadith where you have

00:45:42--> 00:46:19

Muhammad the son of use of the son of Abdullah and the Sunnah or Hamza, the son of Muhammad, the son of our beloved and salaam, narrating and becoming scholars and teachers, respective teachers in their generations and both of them are Sahaba, Yusef and Mohammed are both Sahaba. And what's beautiful is that Yusuf says an authentic narration use of the son of our beloved No, salaam. He said some nanny was Sula he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam use of he said the prophets lie some name the use, of course, the Sahaba would come to the Prophet sly someone asked him to name their children. So the prophets lie some namely use of how beautiful to the Chief Rabbi of Medina, who is

00:46:19--> 00:46:55

a descendant of use of it his Salam, the prophets lie some namely use it. And he says, what occurred any other Hijri he SallAllahu Aarnio someone must have seen the prophets lie Selim. He sat me with him, he brought me close to him sly Salam and he and he wiped my head meaning prophesy son played with him as a child, he embraced him and he named him Youssef. So he had these fond memories of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even though the Prophet size and passed away when he was still a toddler. salAllahu alayhi wa salam. So you have these two children that went on to become scholars and their own rights and really extend the legacy in terms of

00:46:56--> 00:47:39

our beloved no salaam or the Allah Tada. And we'll also we find that the role that he played is advising the Mahajan advising people when they came to Medina about how to learn the ropes of Medina. Okay, so a Buddha or the Allahu Taala and he says, when I came to El Medina, he said that right away the Lagna Salam came to me God Allah Tala Ji Woo for altar America. So we can what Tamra said you know, come with me and let me feed you some of the best of what I have of Salif is is it's like a sugar or powdered type of barley and tumbler so come to my house Let me feed you remember the first advice of the prophets like Selim? I'm sure salaam altimeter arm, so he gave him Salaam and he

00:47:39--> 00:48:17

said, Come to my house, let me feed you. And he said, and let me enter you let me take you to a blessing house that the prophets lie some has entered because the prophets lie some has come to my home already. Then he said, You are in a place where people deal and rebel. The people deal in Riba in this place, they deal in usury interest. So he says, when someone comes to you and gives you something of a present or gives you something extra in the middle of a transaction, do not take it for that is a form of riba meaning Be careful not to take something that is extra, as it is a form of Riba and it's basically a subtle way that they deal in interest in this land. During the time of

00:48:17--> 00:48:22

the whole of Russia and inshallah Tada we're coming towards sort of the end after the death of the Prophet slice Allah.

00:48:23--> 00:49:02

He witnessed many of the conquests but his role really is limited for the most part to being an island, remaining in a place of scholarship and teaching the people he is written down amongst those who witnessed the conquest of Jerusalem. Just beautiful when you think about it, the scholar of the Torah scholar of the Quran, and amongst those that entered into inputs when it was opened Under Armour, Hopital the Allahu Taala animal, and he is someone who had multiple companions narrate from him and a pseudonym article, the Allahu Anhu narrates Hadith from him obliterate all the Allah, Tala and manera Hadith from him, and multiple Sahaba other than his own two children. There is something

00:49:02--> 00:49:03

unique about him

00:49:04--> 00:49:44

in the time of the fitna, and it's always not pleasant when you get to this part of the stories of these companions that live to see the fitna because they saw the height of Islam with the prophets. I saw them and then they saw when you know, these, these wars broke out and this this instigating happen then you had these young people that didn't live in the time of the prophets lie Selim that became extreme in their ways, and that started to even do Tecate of the Sahaba right themselves. Abdullah Abdullah Salam Radi Allahu Taala and Han was the last person to address the people of fitna before they assassinated or dismantled the loved one. He's the very last person to try to talk them

00:49:44--> 00:50:00

out of their ways. Remember, you have this you know these youth that have basically been brainwashed by people on the outside, but now are instigating within the inside and that are doing to feed of the companions and they

00:50:00--> 00:50:17

are surrounding the house of Earth normally a lot of time with all sorts of accusations that are crazy accusations about reasonable the law no but they've become too many for him to refute at this point. And it's not really a lot of time and who is refusing to let the Companions killed them. He doesn't want blood to be shoved in his way

00:50:18--> 00:50:28

so it's Manuel the allot of time and he was in his home and this is when the Siege has become very severe on Satan Earth mammal, the Allah Tala animal, and I'm loving the salam or the Allah Tala and who enters upon him,

00:50:30--> 00:51:08

an Earth model the Allahu Tada, and who gives him Salam. And he says, what brings you to me on my brother? And he says, To the neurotic, he said, I've come to support you. I'm here to help you. And it was phenomenal the amount of time and who said, then go out to them because you are far more beneficial to me out there than you are inside my home meaning what I'm in a state of Nevada right now, if you want to help me talk some sense into these people try to calm the situation down. Obviously, our beloved Mr. Lamb is a scholar, a senior elder amongst the Companions, who has widespread respect, so maybe you can calm the situation out there. And you can stop this. So I'm the

00:51:08--> 00:51:43

loving of salaam after saving it, it'll be alone who tried and after a clubhouse available the law and among others try Abdullah Salam o the Allahu Anhu is the last companion to stand up and to address these people and to try to convince them to to wake up to their waves. And subhanAllah what he says is extremely touching, extremely touching. And he says here come he stands up and he says oh people later Sulu safe Allah, He come from Allah in Salah to mu la told me to either Yeoman.

00:51:45--> 00:52:04

Oh, people do not unleash the sword of Allah upon you. Because if you unleash the sword of Allah upon you, it will not be put away until the Day of Judgment. Be careful. You're killing a righteous man, a righteous leader amongst you almost all the Alon who was killed by a disbeliever

00:52:05--> 00:52:46

your people who are Muslims and you're claiming to be Muslims, and you're killing a righteous man amongst you. And if you do that, then Allah Subhana Allah, Allah will unleash his sword upon you, and it will never be put away from you until the day of judgment. And he says, we look on. He says, Woe to you in soltana como Leung you call WiMo. The Dura. He said that you're so tan today. He rules you with with with the light stick, you know like the what he's saying is that he's lenient with you, the person who rules over you someone that's very lenient with you. He's not someone that's harsh with you. He's not someone that oppresses you. The reason why they're able to take advantage

00:52:46--> 00:53:23

or if model the law and was because he's so kind and so lenient with them. Otherwise, if he was a ruler that wanted to kill, he would have said go ahead and wipe these people out because they're rising up against me, saying, This is a man that is dealing with you with gentleness. And he says for him cartel to move who La La Yuko, we move into the safe. He said, If you kill him, if you kill this gentle, some fun, this righteous leader upon you, then you will not be ruled except with harshness, what will what will come after that is going to be very, very hard upon you because you would have unleashed an environment upon yourselves by killing this righteous and this generous man

00:53:23--> 00:54:08

amongst you. Way back home, he continues as well to you in Medina TOCOM fufa twinbill mela Iike so this place of yours this Medina of yours is surrounded by angels. And he says for him cartel tomato, lair, terracotta ha. So if you kill this man, then these angels will leave us. You kill this righteous man amongst you. These angels will leave us and one narration they said Wallah. He said over 70,000 people were killed because of the unjust murder the assassination of yeah here. It was like Korea. I think it was Silla, that after the assassination, the slaughter of Yeah, here it is Salah was a good gentle hand to them. And after they killed him, then what was unleashed on them as

00:54:08--> 00:54:22

a result of divine retribution was very, very difficult upon them. So be careful with the assassination of this righteous man amongst you, unfortunately, what did these kids do? Kids truly Subhanallah kids?

00:54:23--> 00:54:59

They said Lycia Yahudi sit down or do we will kill you and we will kill him? Basically dismiss them and move them out the way and that's when they went in they killed her mama the little town Subhanallah I mean imagine they disrespected him in this way. And this shows you the nature of these people when they they turned their hearts away from Allah's revelation even though they thought they're reading the Quran, but they turned against the Sahaba this way and they called him you know that they said to him sit down oh Jewish man, we will kill you and we will kill it with Manuel the Allah holetown And we don't want to hear what you have to say. And so you

00:55:00--> 00:55:35

It was unfortunate Subhanallah but there's so much divine wisdom to what he said, as well. He's saying to them Subhanallah look what Allah gifted you with. And if you don't do right by that blessing with a generous leader like Earth model, the Allahu Taala animal, and you instead respond in this way, then you're going to face divine retribution and divine consequences. And that's exactly Subhanallah what happens the chaos becomes unleashed upon them as a result of the environment of fitna that they create and the loving was phenomenal the Allah and was a man who was well read in history, the history of peoples before the history of the Ummah, the history of the

00:55:35--> 00:56:14

nations before the history of Bani Israel and and of course, now the history of Bani Israel. He knows the stories he knows the Scriptures He knows the lives of the prophets he knows how this all works. And when Satan ideal the Allah Tala animal then you know basically starts to make his way to Iraq. And you know the Allahu Taala and who to put an end to this fitna. Listen to what he says to him. This is again coming from a place of Divine Wisdom, he says is a member of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said to me all the Allah I implore you, stick to the member of the Prophet say something don't leave in Medina, for indicating Farakka who Nam Tada whoever that if you

00:56:14--> 00:56:31

leave the member of the prophets lie Selim then you're never gonna see it again. Meaning if you leave Medina, and you take this battle out to Iraq, you'll never see the member of the prophets lie some again, you'll never see it in Medina again And subhanAllah Satan and it'll be a low tide and he was assassinated were in Kufa and Iraq

00:56:32--> 00:57:10

in the same environment of fitten that existed, may Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so this was something sad that he lived to see this happen within his OMA and he was someone who decided to stay to himself in the fitna completely Of course, we see the Companions reacted in different ways. He was one of those that said, I want nothing to do with, you know, wars and battles and fighting between people that you that and ALLAH. So he took to his home, and he abandoned it altogether. And he stayed in the Medina and he stuck to the narration of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he died a natural death,

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

in fact, that are the Allahu taala. And

00:57:12--> 00:57:48

in the year 43, after hijra, at a very, very old age, a very, very old age. Again, he was either 10 years older than the Prophet Sai, some are 20 years older, so he would have been close to 100 years old at that time, when he passed away, and he is amongst those noble companions that is buried in Alba clear with the family and the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for all the Allahu Taala and who may Allah be pleased with him and be pleased with the companions and son, his peace and blessings upon our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam and his family Allahumma Amin and inshallah as I said, next week we're going to take a break in sha Allah to Allah

00:57:49--> 00:58:05

and Bismillah heeta Allah after I get back inshallah Tata will continue with Salman and Pharisee, or the Allahu Taala and which will be a treat so in sha Allah to Allah, please do be present two weeks from now as we continue, and we can take a few questions for now inshallah Xochimilco. So

00:58:07--> 00:58:24

we know like, we know the Injeel the Bible is been changed and stuff the the thorough that he was reading about the signs, is that similar to the Old Testament that we see today, or is there a version of that or is that also been changed? Good question. So what we see

00:58:25--> 00:58:33

sort of the the changes that took place within biblical scripture was the Torah that he was reading the same as the Old Testament today.

00:58:34--> 00:58:53

The Torah, generally speaking, and this is something I'm gonna tell you I'm Rahim Allah, I believe in no claim, I don't want to actually misquote him, but I believe he mentioned this, but historically speaking has a little more rigor to it in terms of preservation than what came in terms of the Gospels and the NG why, because what was revealed to recite Islam is almost entirely lost. And of course, the Gospels

00:58:55--> 00:59:07

what it means when you say the Gospels today has a different implication altogether, then the NG so there is of course, to Hadith there's of course alteration and change and change over time. However, generally speaking,

00:59:08--> 00:59:37

there's less change within the total right, then there would then there would have been what's known as the Old Testament with the New Testament. Of course, it's still not the the initial revelation to musante salaam, but there is some change. So How different is it from there till now, Allah knows best but one thing that we know is that even what exists today, there are, you know, implications of a prophet to come.

00:59:38--> 00:59:57

indications of a profits come and implications of a messenger to come. We of course, believe that that is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam right as Muslims, we will say that that's the prophets. I said, I'm Deuteronomy 1818, to the illiterate Prophet, from the brothers of Mossad, Islam, and multiple other references that we would take to be the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

So clearly at that time,

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

The indications would have been even clearer and more pristine, which we'll find from what I'll call and they and, you know, other people that were learned in the Scriptures at the time that immediately saw the prophets lie some as a confirmation of those verses. And Najafi hold the a lot of time on others. Because that

01:00:18--> 01:00:19

was a question from the sisters.

01:00:21--> 01:00:25

I thought I saw one of the sisters holding a mic. Yeah. Yeah. It's just you.

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

Anyone have a question from the sisters?

01:00:34--> 01:00:56

It seems he adopted Islam from day one. So why he didn't share with the Prophet, or the beginning better an AHA than, you know, I'm sorry. Can you say that? Again? I'm seeing why he did not share was a prophet all the wars in the beginning, you know, to defend this land, like in Ohio door in. But

01:00:57--> 01:01:08

I mean, obviously he was here because he waited for your saying why didn't he fight alongside the prophets lie? Selim? Yes. So it's important to know that sometimes when you don't have the Messiah heads when you don't have the

01:01:09--> 01:01:19

the battles listed, or someone being listed there doesn't mean they weren't there. But that means the presence wasn't necessarily noteworthy. So

01:01:20--> 01:01:35

the understanding and you'll see with with someone like Abdullah Saddam, it'll say for example, some of them say he witnessed brotherhood and so on. Some of them say he didn't, that he was amongst those that were not present. Allah knows best. But certainly he was not amongst those that were sinful that were blameworthy.

01:01:36--> 01:01:50

And it could be that he was present, but he was not particularly active within the battle at the time. Yeah, certainly not amongst the sinful, though, or any anyone blameworthy? Yeah. I think that'll be the last question. So I'm going to take your question privately. So we could do it on its own? Yeah.

01:01:52--> 01:02:12

Yeah, basically, it sounds like a blindness. And I was about in his 70s when he embraces Islam, but he's still climbing at the top of the palm trees to look out. So it sounds like it's quite fit. And so my question was going to be basically did he participate in many battles, even though he's quite old? Yeah, so again, the same answer about battles

01:02:13--> 01:02:25

with Malama salaam or the alongside and who we're just not sure about what the implications would be when it comes to battles or what his participation or lack of participation will be. If I find something else I'll maybe mentioned in the next lecture and

01:02:26--> 01:02:42
