I will ask Samira administrators in Scenario human or human hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen are going to come down a lot. I mean, when I ask people to do a lot more study with Central America, decode Asuka Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam. On early he was talking to selling to someone Kathira Charlotte Tata tonight before we get started with our halacha with our lecture on economics. We have a brother who's going to be embracing Islam with us. So I'd like to welcome Carson if you can come up

00:01:47--> 00:02:09

inshallah Tada tonight Dear Brothers and Sisters, we're going to be continuing with the first and we're going to be speaking about the son of the pharaoh of this ummah. And it's very interesting when you when you have someone who has such a prominent position in Islam as being the fifth or owner of this ummah and it shows you what the prophets of Allah who it was Saddam said

00:02:10--> 00:02:49

that there are multiple Pharaohs throughout history, right you have the pharaoh that we know you have the fifth our own, and then we have our fifth our own as an ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a people. And that of course was Abuja, no Hashem. And we're going to be talking about his son eco model, the Allahu Tada at home. But it's important to note that as time goes on, as generations go on, you always have pharaohs and you always have tyrants, and then you have heroes that rise up against those tyrants. And you have people that come from the households of those tyrants, that turned out to be of the greatest heroes, and of those who carry and possess some of

00:02:49--> 00:03:27

the greatest virtues in Islam. And tonight, as we talk about Akena model the law on who it's personally I'm going to say personally, one of my favorite stories from the companions, and there are many of them that are like my favorite, but I'll just tell you that if none of you name your kids are economic after this, then I consider that I failed, and properly conveying the virtue of this manner ECHO model, the Allahu Taala and how many of you hear the name Eric Rama in the books of tafsir. And this is not the same Nkrumah or the Allahu Taala animal in the books of Tafseer. This is one of the great companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who comes literally from the

00:03:27--> 00:04:07

worst man in the Sierra of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the ultimate villain in the life of the prophet slice I'm so he talks about harlot, about the Allahu Anhu even are worried about Malia and worried a horrible human being caught a little the low on who goes on to become safe Allah, the sort of Allah Subhana Allah we talked about armor and all the Allahu Anhu ignorance allows such a horrible person that we could have spent a whole lecture just on the verses of Quran about him. But tonight we talk about a Croma the son of Abuja, and I literally I have to say this, if I was to talk about what I want, what verses in the Quran speak about the evil of Abuja, it

00:04:07--> 00:04:24

literally would take me an hour. Why? Because I'm loving our bustle. The Allah on Houma identifies over 80 versus eight zero 80 verses in the Quran that were revealed in response to the evil and the tyranny of this particular man.

00:04:25--> 00:04:41

It's enough to say that inserted Allah, the first verses revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah subhanaw taala he says, If Bismillah because of the color creed, in the Name of your Lord, who creates that the second half of that Surah from verse nine onwards is about a Buddha who

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

actually speaks to the pharaoh of this ummah, or a to Li Yong Ha, do you see the one who forbids who forbids Righteousness? Who stomps on the necks of the believers who breaks people's collarbones who murders people in the vicinity of the sacred carrabba

00:05:00--> 00:05:47

who violates every single established norm prior to Islam and after Islam, his cultural and tribal norms, to oppress and to mutilate, and to brutalize the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and his companions are eater lady and her other than either salah or ATIA. In Canada Alan Hooda Amara Taqwa are ATIA in Canada one law. Do you see this person? This person who forbids righteousness this person who denies who lies LM Jana Ambien Allah Allah doesn't he know that Allah season Kela lm yanta He Lana spam bin nasiha Allah Subhana Allah mentions that this is a person that's going to be seized by the forelock. A man who will pay for his sins because of the horrors that he inflicted on

00:05:47--> 00:06:28

the Prophet sallallahu when he was Saddam and the most vulnerable of the companions. This was the man who took out the slaves who became Muslim in Mecca and created a torture camp for the public to see and who took a spear and stuck it through so many Yeah, well, the Allahu Allah, the Abyssinian woman to make an example out of her that tortured the slaves and public that called for people to humiliate the prophets lie some in every way that incited in every way, the man who made life unbearable for Muslims in Mecca, the man who actually started the boycott against the prophets lie some that led to the death of Hadith titled The Allah Allah, his wife and his uncle Abu Talib, the

00:06:28--> 00:07:10

man who plotted the assassination of the prophets lie Selim during the hijra, who came up with the Master Plan, you know, on how to kill the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So this is a brutal tyrant. And I want you to imagine that in the background of this brutal tyrant, who is the Chief of bento Masoom, who the prophets lie some called the pharaoh of this ummah, is his son Nkrumah are the Allahu taala. And another happy Rahim Allah says cannon mineral all Silja Halia can be he was from the heads of the ignorant ones just like his father, and he was the successor of his father. So here's the scene. I want you to play all of those scenes of Abuja oppressing the Prophet slice I'm

00:07:10--> 00:07:54

spitting, torturing, killing, and I want you to imagine economic by his side, assisting him in every way watching in every way, because he was deemed the successor of Abuja, meaning Abuja who is the head of bento Masoom, the rival tribe that wants to kill the Prophet slice I'm simply because he belongs to battle Hashem, Nkrumah is the son that is being groomed to be the successor, the chief of benromach Zoom. So in Abuja Hill, presumably takes power and Mecca. His son Eric Chroma is the Crown Prince. All right, just to give you the visual. There's also something else to keep in mind here. The prophets like some saw something even in the pharaoh of this

00:07:56--> 00:07:57

What did the prophets lie some see in Abuja?

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

What did he see in him?

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

Anyone told me?

00:08:03--> 00:08:07

No, he saw positive things in him too. He saw his potential to be a leader.

00:08:09--> 00:08:51

Prophets lie some a major Oh Allah give victory to Islam. To the more beloved of the two are almost to you, I'm gonna bring Qatar but all the Allahu Anhu or American Alicia, who is Abuja, meaning the province is on recognize that this man is a leader if he changes his heart. And if he takes that strength, and he puts it to good use, he could be one of the greatest leaders of the Muslims. Now here's the plot twist. What the prophets lie some saw in him if he would become Muslim, would become the reality of Chroma almost two decades later, because a chroma had the qualities of his father. He was big, he was strong. He was wise. Abuja, his nickname was actually Abdul Hakim, the father of

00:08:51--> 00:09:10

wisdom. But he became the father of ignorance because of his blind rage towards the truth. He was eloquent when you saw it. You saw his father and Subhanallah it's really interesting, because their own model and Abuja right are pretty much the same prototype before Islam filters them out.

00:09:11--> 00:09:50

Or Omar had a son that was a copy of him. I'm the love Norma Abuja had a son that was a copy of him and a chroma right? And out of these four, the only one that's going to die in ignorance is going to be the father of ignorance, who was given chance after chance and the prophets lice and I was so patient with him for over a decade, calling him to Islam calling him to stop his transgressions against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So here is a chroma growing up in this environment with his father, the pharaoh. Now I'm going to put up this chart really quick. And this is going to be one of those things that the students who want to actually go back and look at the family tree

00:09:50--> 00:10:00

and shot lots of Anna can do so and appreciate in the nighttime, can we put it up okay. I wanted to just put together a little chart that shows you the connection but

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

tweener economic and harlots. So there are other kids that are involved here. But at least by looking at this you can visualize the relationship between Nkrumah and harlot Ekrem his wife and inherited them and he sham so if you look at the top there you'll see unbelievable Mahina and he Shamu Hera. Right so the two elders that make up bento Mazoon their children on one side you see harlot little the Allahu Taala and, and his sister Fatima been tallied Okay.

00:10:33--> 00:11:11

On the other side from the children of the shaman and will hit on there are other kids and we've spoken about them. You see Ahmed really Sam who is Abuja and inheritable he Shama Radi Allahu taala. And how did the booty Sham is going to show up in the story of Nkrumah at the very end? So he's Ekrem as Uncle Abuja has brother, and had it was one of the main enemies of the prophets lie some as well. He fought the prophets lie some all the way until fled to Mecca. And then he became a Muslim on the day of the opening of Mecca as well. So he fought the prophets lie some for 20 years, along with Abuja. So Eric Rama is the son of Abuja, obviously. And he's married to a woman named Omar

00:11:11--> 00:11:31

Hakim Bintan Hadith. Who is both as you can see, the daughter of inherited the Venetian and the daughter of Fawlty Robinson would eat so inhabitable he shot Mary's faulty moments and what he you know what you get out of this? It's funny because like, my brother once made this comment about the Arab families. A lot of them are not family trees, their family spirals.

00:11:33--> 00:11:42

You know, so benromach Zoom was marrying inside the tribe, right, maintaining the lineage of biomass zoom inside the tribe. So how did is economics cousin?

00:11:43--> 00:11:56

Or how did the rather Yeah, he's their economic cousin, and economic is married to his cousin, um, Hakeem. So there is a lot of relationship between a Croma and harlot or the Allahu taala. And as well as his as well as his wife,

00:11:58--> 00:12:18

Anakin, and there's a lot of enmity towards the prophets like Selim within this family. And so this is a whole family that's bent on defeating Islam, on fighting the prophets lie some and making sure they eliminate Islam in every single way. So let's go on and shot let's add a now to where this all takes a turn.

00:12:19--> 00:12:52

Nkrumah himself inherits the hatred of the prophets ISIL. He hates him because his father hates him. Right. And for all of those years, the transgression is all coming from his father towards the prophets lie Selim and the weak Muslims, and Nkrumah is assisting in that. And even other non Muslim leaders would tell Abuja, calm down, you are way too much you're hurting, you're violating all of our standards, you're giving us a bad name, your torture is going too far.

00:12:53--> 00:13:13

This rage, however, in economic life towards the prophets, like some is going to take a turn in the Battle of bed that in particular, Battle of better, obviously, Quraysh surrounds the Muslims, they think that they're going to wipe them out. They outnumber them in every way. They're already celebrating a Buddha who is leading the army of Quraysh, against the Muslims.

00:13:14--> 00:13:29

And I'll give you the story first and foremost, from that I'm not going to follow the law analyst perspective. I'm not nervous that I was standing on the side of the Muslims, obviously, on the day of better and I look to my right and to my left, and I had these two teenagers.

00:13:30--> 00:13:59

And I looked at them and I was like, I wish I had like some some serious men that were next to me like why am i between these two? teenagers? So they said Terminator and Akona Boehner alarm in Houma is I gotta admit, I was hoping that I'd be between like two serious warriors, like why am i between these two kids? So he says Philharmonie huduma. So one of them taught my shoulder. So I looked at him and I said, What is it? He said, Yeah, um, he said Uncle Hal charity forever Jahad which one of those is Abuja?

00:14:01--> 00:14:39

Can you imagine it like a teenager like Tasha was like, which one of those Abuja so I told him mahadji To get a lay here. What do you want with Abuja, like what are you going to do to Abuja and realize Abuja has the size of Alma, he's a mountain of a man. What are you going to do to Abuja? He said, Akbar to Anna, who your Subaru Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He's a maddening kid. He's never met a Buddha in Makkah, he said, I heard that he used to abuse the prophets, Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam. He said, I'm going to find him. And he said, When I meet him, one of us is going to survive that meeting. But not both of us. The other kid taps his shoulder and says Which one is

00:14:39--> 00:15:00

he? I'm not I'm gonna point them out. So these two kids are known as the two more adds more added more honorable Jimbo, and more as a flock. To Young more ants, may Allah be pleased with them both to young teenagers that were there in the battlefield, to defend the prophets lie so them on that momentous occasion

00:15:00--> 00:15:46

As an entrepreneur who says that in the Battle of bed that they both struck Abuja hail from both sides, like they came out in from both sides, but he was so big that he fell to the ground and even though they both struck him clean hits, he was still alive. And I'm loving the mystery a little the longtime animal who was physically right, the shortest of the companions. He climbs up on to Abuja Hill and looks him in the eye. Realize that Abuja had one day, almost killed had been mistreated for just reading Quran around the Kaaba, he stepped on his collarbone and broke its beat them unconscious. And now even Mr. Google the Allahu Anhu stands up on him and looks down at Abuja, and

00:15:46--> 00:15:58

Abuja looks at him and says, luck other Tata mortar consignment dry run up. You have climbed a difficult climb, oh, Shepherd of sheep. Little Shepherd, what are you doing? Who do you think you are to climb on top of me?

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

And he asked him and Massoud the middle fella, by the way, who's winning the battle?

00:16:04--> 00:16:43

You know, I'm not able to fight anymore, but I want to know who's winning the battle? And he said Allah to the law, what he Rasulullah er, I do Allah, victories to Allah and to the messengers of Allah on Islam enemy of Allah. Allah Mr. Little, the Allahu Anhu finishes him, right? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes to the pharaoh of this ummah, who died like the pharaoh of Moses, right and a humiliated way. And one of the Sahaba even saw him being dragged into the earth as if it was something angelic like Moses, like most artists have drowned the pharaoh of his day, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called out to him and he said, Hell we're just too

00:16:43--> 00:17:21

adorable come hochkar for any budget to murder any Robbie have. Have you found the promise of your Lord to be true for I have found the Promise of my Lord to be true. They said yeah rasool Allah Helios Mara and they said O Messenger of Allah, did they hear you and the Prophet slice and M says MA and Tong be a Samara Lima a comin home? Well, I can only own now ug Boone. Prophets like some said, they can hear just as well as you can hear it. But today they're unable to say anything. All those days of taunting and cursing and beating and torturing. And now the Pharaoh dies a miserable fate for their own of this ummah, dies a miserable fate. Now a Croma.

00:17:22--> 00:17:31

He inherited hatred. When he sees his father on the battlefield, he shouts and he starts shouting rage at the prophets of Allah and he was.

00:17:32--> 00:18:16

Now he wants to kill the prophets. i Some for personal reasons before it was the hatred of Islam that he had because his father was the Pharaoh. Now the prophets like Saddam is party to Abby. He's the one who killed my father. And his rage takes a different turn. And it kind of talks about like this is something that consumes him at this point. He sees the prophets lie Selim in a different light. And so comes the battle ahead. Now comes the battle ahead. Here's how it looks above Sofia Sufyan is commanding the middle. Khalid Radi Allahu Taala and who is on the left here 700 troops Nkrumah are the Allahu Anhu is on the right here 700 troops. And so this is the command of grace

00:18:16--> 00:18:52

this day. And harlot are the alarms on and of course orchestrated the victory on ahead for the other side, and killed all the archers of the Muslims as well. Nkrumah are the Allah Tada and who was one of those who fought fiercely in the battle against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his wife on McCain was beating the war drums. So she was one of those that was singing lyrics of death against the Muslims beating the war drums I mean, this is a family that hates the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam severely.

00:18:53--> 00:19:29

So it finishes hunt up was meant to be a genocide of the Muslims right? They tried to surround Medina from every direction and wipe them out once and for all are economical, the Allahu Taala and who was not satisfied after I heard because the prophets like some was still alive. And he said, I will not live if the prophets lie, some is living. Muhammad needs to die because He killed my father. That's his mindset. Now he, while this is happening is the chief of Benelux zoom, so he actually assumes a Buddha has positioned in society. So in Moroccan society, he's really at the top of the ladder now. Right? He's really at the top of the ladder alongside Abu Sufyan and Ahmed have

00:19:29--> 00:19:32

been asked in sort of the next generation of leaders now

00:19:33--> 00:19:42

and then harlot are the Allah Tada and who comes to ECHO model the Allahu Anhu and Maccha and tells him that he's thinking about converting to Islam.

00:19:43--> 00:19:56

Erica model the Allah Tala and who blows up at him now remember the family chart. He's Khalid's best friend. He Scarlett's cousin, and he's married to college Nice. So Ekrem and harlot are like this.

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

So when harlot tells him I'm thinking about embracing

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

Islam economics says you want me to embrace the religion of the man who killed my father, he can only see the prophets I'm in that light. You want me to embrace the religion of the man who killed my father, and Nkrumah was the one who called the leaders of boorish against started initially, but then stopped the scuffle because it was about to become a bloodbath and muck. But he's the one who initially alerted the leaders of Qureshi against harlot when Khalid went out to become Muslim.

00:20:26--> 00:20:29

Then comes the day effect to hammock.

00:20:31--> 00:21:10

And when the Prophet slicin returns to Mecca, we know that the prophets lie Selim did not want bloodshed on that day. Right the prophets lie some did not want bloodshed on that day. This was going to be a legacy of forgiveness, forgiveness for the same people who killed the family of the prophets lie some who killed many of the Muslims who drove him out of his land. The prophets lie Selim comes in to Mecca with the same spirit of use of Hadees salaam of the Prophet Joseph Natta three Valley Community Amani even repeats his message. There is no blame upon you today. The prophets lie some forgives all of those who killed his family members, all of those who attempted to

00:21:10--> 00:21:13

kill him and give us a general amnesty to Mecca.

00:21:14--> 00:21:37

But as they're coming in, if you remember from the lecture of Kyler Murray, there'll be Allah Tada and Eric, Rama and Surfliner omega are still fighting. So they attack the flank of harlot and Khalid is able to ward off their attack now on the side of the Muslims, and he kills 12 Men warding off the attack, and economic and sustainable Omiya flee the scene.

00:21:39--> 00:21:53

So I want you to think about how bad economic is. The prophets lie some has forgiven Mecca, right? The Prophet sign Salem named Eric Rama, he said that even if you find him clinging to the caribou under the cloth of the caribou, take them out.

00:21:55--> 00:22:17

That's how bad he is. This man is plotting against the prophets like Selim to the very last moment, so He's forgiving Mecca, he's even forgiving Joseph Yun. But Nkrumah is still attacking still abrasive towards the prophets like Selim, He's blinded by his rage, but after hunted now, on the side of the Muslims word of off the attack, economic and soft one fled to Yemen.

00:22:19--> 00:22:27

And this is where the story of economics and Islam truly begins. The prophets lie some enters Mecca,

00:22:29--> 00:22:35

and he forgives everyone. He offers a general amnesty to Mecca and the shocks the enemies of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:22:36--> 00:23:12

because by every single standard, he had the right to take revenge on those who harm to any law of war. He had the right sallallahu alayhi wa salam to kill the people who killed multiple people who crucified Muslims, who carried out all sorts of massacres. But the prophets lie some was bringing hearts together, he announces the general amnesty, and this softens the hearts of many of the former enemies of the profit slice and I'm like, Wow, he really is different. He really is different. Like, we did all this to him. If we were in his shoes, we know what we would do to ourselves.

00:23:13--> 00:23:22

And so some of the most vile enemies of the profit slice and I'm entering upon him to personally seek his forgiveness and the prophets, like some forgives them.

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

Amongst them on the hurricane, who was beating the war drums and chanting lyrics of death,

00:23:31--> 00:24:00

you know, inciting parades to attack the Muslims. And Nkrumah has now fled to Yemen, and they don't have a cell phone, right? So you can't call up economics. She has no idea. She knows her husband flood to Yemen. But she's not in touch with him anymore. But she enters upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she introduces herself. And she says Jada sort Allah, I'm coming to you as a believer, as a Muslim. And someone who wholeheartedly affirms your message at this point.

00:24:01--> 00:24:17

And she doesn't just ask forgiveness for what she did. She says, O Messenger of Allah. I've heard that you basically have commanded that my husband Nkrumah, my husband has come to Abuja, and I've heard that you commanded that he be taken out even if he's holding on to the cloth of the cabinet.

00:24:18--> 00:24:25

O Messenger of Allah, I'm asking you to forgive him and to grant him safety. And I'll bring him back to you. And I'll make sure that he doesn't harm me.

00:24:26--> 00:24:28

What do you think the prophets lie, some says?

00:24:29--> 00:24:59

Without any hesitation, the province like some says he's safe. He has amnesty. Right? So the province license immediately grants him amnesty and forgives him. So now I'm hacking. She has to go find him wherever he's fled, and tell him that the prophets lie some has forgiven you. You're okay now come back to Mecca. And let's start over. So um, Hakeem has to go on this journey. Nkrumah tells the story from his side, what's happening along the way of the

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

journey on Hakeem tells the story from her site. Economic gets to Yemen. And he realizes we're still too close to it wasn't called Saudi Arabia back then of course, but we're still still too close to Mecca I need to get out of here.

00:25:15--> 00:25:19

So the irony of it all is he's going to board a boat to where

00:25:20--> 00:26:07

Abyssinia habitat where they persecuted the Muslims and cause them to flee two decades ago. I tried to run away there and now economic wants to flee to Abyssinia and beg the Najafi for refuge, the successor to the Najafi, of course the successor to Osama for refuge. So Nkrumah says I get on a boat and Yemen to cross the sea to Abyssinia to modern day Ethiopia. And he says that while I was on the boat, right on this boat with all these people, they're strangers. This huge storm comes and the boat starts to turn right and left and we all thought we were going to die. And he said then the people that were with me in the boat. The captain calls up and he says yeah, comb uglies only Rob

00:26:07--> 00:26:51

become a giraffe and hula Yongey ha Hoonah Illa who says oh my people sincerely pray to your Lord, because no one will save anyone here except for him. And he's like, God, I'm surrounded by Muslims here too. Right? They're everywhere. These believers are everywhere. And so he said, I'm looking around and these people start praying to Allah, they start supplicating to Allah. And what is Allah Subhana Allah and then Cathy Rahim Allah actually uses this in the Tafseer of the ions, that if they are riding in the boat, and this the ship starts to shake down Allah homily, seen Allah Hadith that you know, a certain thing overcomes you where you connect to your one God, right? Everyone calls out

00:26:51--> 00:27:06

to Allah, when the turbulence strikes, right? You see the most sincere do out on the plane, when the plane starts shaking. Everyone makes dua to Allah at that moment, everyone calls on a god. So economics says everyone around me around me is praying to Allah.

00:27:07--> 00:27:10

And he said, and I realized that that moment,

00:27:11--> 00:27:39

if Allah is the only one who saves us on the sea, then surely he's the only one who saves us on the land. So he actually traces faith entering his heart to that moment, he says, that's where there was a turn for me like Allah was sending me a message. Like, if only Allah protects us when we're on the water, then it's only Allah Who protects us when we're on the land. In any case, the boat shook so violently that economics said it came back to Yemen. So he never actually made it to Abyssinia to have a shot.

00:27:40--> 00:27:50

And his heart has changed a bit. Right, that experience that a near death experience changes you right, his heart has changed a bit towards Allah subhanaw taala towards God.

00:27:51--> 00:28:07

Unpacking, on the other hand, is coming to Yemen. As a Muslim, the story has plenty of twists and turns by the way. I'm Hakeem had a Greek slave from the days of Jacqueline from the days of ignorance.

00:28:08--> 00:28:11

And she said that as we were making our way to Yemen,

00:28:13--> 00:28:24

along the way of the journey, basically, the Greek slave tried to seduce her, and try to harass her. Right? And so he actually made an attempt on her.

00:28:25--> 00:29:03

And so now this whole journey has changed for her to she's going out to save her husband. But now the men that she brought to accompany her to lead the way of the journey, right? harassed her, tried to seduce her. So now this journey means something different. So now she's thinking survival. And she said that while I was fleeing away from him, I found my husband Nkrumah in Yemen, I asked about him, I found my husband, Ekrem and Yemen. The first thing I told him was that I came with this man, you know, who was who you know, to find you. And he actually made an attempt on me. So Ekrem This is before they have any conversation economic went and found the man and killed him.

00:29:04--> 00:29:09

Right away. Right, like that part of the journey is done.

00:29:10--> 00:29:21

Right. They haven't even talked about a tsunami. They haven't talked about the profit slice alum. The whole conversation is about protecting his wife at this moment. And her getting away from a man that tried to hurt her right, tried to harm her.

00:29:22--> 00:29:27

And then after that's done, now, the conversation has to happen.

00:29:28--> 00:29:46

So economics is happy to see his wife, um, Hakeem. He tries to approach her as a husband approaches a wife. And she says, no, no, you can't touch me. He says, why not? She says, I'm a Muslim and you're a Muslim. He says, why? What are you talking about? No, I'm a Muslim. No.

00:29:47--> 00:29:59

And you need to save yourself from destruction. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a man of forgiveness and generosity and he's showing you mercy. He's telling you, you're forgiven. So go back

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

to him. And she basically says to him, Look, don't just save yourself from destruction in this life because the prophets like some that he conditioned people becoming Muslim to give them amnesty and Mecca the general amnesty, no, you didn't have to become Muslim. But it was the amnesty and a lot of people became Muslim through that amnesty, right. So she's saying, don't just save yourself from destruction here, but save yourself from destruction. And the Africa as well. This man is a prophet of Allah, it's enough of fighting him, enough of this transgression, come back with me to Mecca as a believer.

00:30:32--> 00:30:55

So Ekrem basically resolves that between what happened on the ship, and he's blown away by the forgiveness of the Prophet sallallahu. It was on the fact that the prophets license even willing to give him a chance. And now his wife on hacking is a Muslim too. And he's like, I can't live without you. I don't know what's happening here. So he says, Finally, I told her, let's go back to Muhammad Sallallahu he was.

00:30:57--> 00:30:59

So now the journey continues.

00:31:01--> 00:31:13

Economic is coming back towards Mecca with his wife from hacking. What a journey for the both of them an economic wants to come embrace Islam with the profit slice I'm after, harassing him tormenting him fighting him for two decades.

00:31:15--> 00:31:50

And the prophets Allah, Allah Azza wa salam, as he's sitting in Mecca, he says to the people that are sitting around him, he says the economic No, Abby Johanna, is coming to you as a Mohajer. And as a Muslim. He's coming to you as a migrant, and he's coming to you as a Muslim. So clearly, it was divinely communicated to him that Nkrumah had a change of heart. So he's telling the Companions Look at economics coming back, and he's coming to you as a migrant, and he's coming to you as a Muslim. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Do not insult his father

00:31:51--> 00:32:11

is Pamela don't hurt his feelings. Don't talk about about his father, do not insult his father, the pharaoh of the Ummah Don't insult him. Because he says some Allah Aarnio salaam that insulting the dead, neither reaches the dead, or benefits to living. You're not going to get anything out of insulting Buddha and his presence.

00:32:12--> 00:32:40

His freedom and we're not going to hurt him. We're not going to taunt him. Now Subhanallah This allows it actually says because almost all the Allahu Anhu was his cousin right on notice from this this family. And it was very narrates that Amara de la and who can ally elkaar Nkrumah Miyabi Jahan Illa shutter Abby gehad that every time Omar would see a chroma he talked about how bad Buddha had was that he hated up with Jeremy everything I would have did to them.

00:32:41--> 00:33:05

And then a chroma came to the profit slice someone complained This is later on so the profit slice and I'm sad now. Yes, then lie so Bendel hurry cool. Up the hill Hi. Let not one of you curse the dead in a way that you cause grief to the living. It's not worth it. So here are the profits. I'm just telling the people in Mecca look this man is coming back to you. Don't talk about about his father, because you're gonna hurt.

00:33:07--> 00:33:09

There's so much to unpack here.

00:33:10--> 00:33:52

Is Abuja evil. Yes, he's literally the pharaoh of the ummah. There are a lot of Quran about him. But the prophet flying Salam understands that Nkrumah loves his father, what would be the point of hurting him? What would be the point of reminding him of who his father was, and what his father did. Prophets lie some was trying to win hearts here. He's trying to build a community of hearts. And it's important here, which shows us right, that you know, sometimes we think of these things in a black and white way. And it's not all black and white. There is complexity here to human emotion that's to be taken into consideration, especially when you're trying to bring people together.

00:33:53--> 00:34:22

Right. So the prophets like some knows economic is coming to him as a muscle. He sees sallallahu alayhi wasallam Nkrumah, and I'm Hakeem coming to him. And the prophets, like some says from far away, because their economic is approaching with a lot of hesitation. Now if he's on the other side. He tricked the prophets lie Selim, right he killed him right at the spot. So he's approaching with some hesitation and the prophets lie some said marhaba and the rocky will Maharajah

00:34:23--> 00:34:31

Welcome to the migrant who writes towards me, my husband, Bill, the rockabilly Mahajan. So he greets him with a lot of love.

00:34:32--> 00:34:56

And some of the scars say calling Mahajan is also in a way of saying to him about time, because like everybody else around you has migrated to Medina and done what they were supposed to do before the before the opening of Mecca. But here you are coming as a mojado to your land in Mecca. You're coming back to Mecca as a migrant Seeking Safety matter haven't been rakibul Mahajan.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

So we're economical. The Ultra animal comes to the profit side

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

Selam

00:35:02--> 00:35:09

and he puts his head down, and he stretches out his hand to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said, O Messenger of Allah.

00:35:10--> 00:35:12

What is it that I should say?

00:35:13--> 00:35:15

What do I say? Like where do I even start?

00:35:17--> 00:35:24

So the prophets lies to them, has him repeat the Shahada. An economic is highly emotional.

00:35:25--> 00:35:27

So he says to the prophets like Selim,

00:35:29--> 00:35:57

ya rasool Allah, ask Allah to forgive me. For all those times I fought against you. For all those times I cursed you. For all those times I obstructed the way to add a sort of law is stuck really seek Allah's forgiveness for me. Now, by the way, again, like the prophets, like some doesn't have to do all this stuff. He could say, look, I already let you go, at least, you know, a slap on the wrist like you've been at this until the very last moment.

00:35:58--> 00:36:16

But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam raises his hands. And he said, Allah Allah for Allah who are da Ting, the Neha what could lemma Ceylon Surah de la Mulder and URI to be her be he is for an Oracle, work for Allahumma Nullam and LD fi watch heat oh and Allah.

00:36:17--> 00:36:49

Oh Allah Oh my Lord, forgive him for all the hostility he directed against me. For all the battles he fought against me seeking to put out your light, forgive him for everything bad he ever said about me in front of me. And everything that he ever said about me when I wasn't even there. Anything he said about me and my presence, anything he said about me in my absence, economical the low on his face beings right with joy, like, you know, he got that drop from the Prophets lie some supplication.

00:36:50--> 00:37:04

And he said well La Jolla rasool Allah, I swear by I swear by Allah O Messenger of Allah. Le o naffaa. Pattern and fact to her alayka Illa in fact to Mithila hafiz or Barilla I swear by by Allah or messenger of Allah, I will not

00:37:05--> 00:37:14

I will not rest until I spend in the way of Allah everything that I spent against Allah subhanaw taala away

00:37:15--> 00:37:59

and fighting for the cause of Allah just as I fought against the cause of Allah like I'm going to make this up Yasuda Allah, I'm going to redeem myself a messenger of Allah. And he's essentially swearing to the prophets of Allah on Islam that I want to do everything that I did against you more for you. So the prophets lie someone is heart and Islam one is heart. At this point, not only did he become Muslim as a man of the heavier Hema last narratives, Islam became excellent and Imam Shafi Rahim Allah said, Nkrumah would go on to distinguish himself as a man who endures the greatest trials for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. Let's see mama Shafi Rahim Allah and his oath, and this

00:37:59--> 00:38:16

is really beautiful. You know, it'd be Malika. He narrates that the oath that Nkrumah would take, you know, he wouldn't just say well lie, he would say, now we're living in a journey OMA better, by the one who saved me on the day of better. There's something deeply profound about this.

00:38:17--> 00:38:26

The day of better was the time that he turned against the Prophet signs. And I'm truly like, his heart was filled with hatred against the prophesy son because his father died on the day of better on that day of the battle better.

00:38:27--> 00:38:46

And he realizes that if I would have died on the day of better if Allah would have decreed that I would be dead on the day of better than I'd be just like my father in the punishment. I'd be just another mini for their own, lost in the dustbin of history. But Allah saved me on that day and Allah brought me to this position.

00:38:47--> 00:39:06

And what an amazing favor from Allah subhanho wa taala. So he would say now we're living in a journey, but I swear by the one who saved me on the day of better you want more about how excellent has Islam became to have the McCarthy Rahim Allah said, it was said that Ekrem and never committed a sin from the day he became muscle.

00:39:08--> 00:39:54

What kind of Mujahidin, so one kawaman He was, you know, brave in battle, he would fast long into the days he would stand long into the nights, and you would see him in the masjid, holding the Quran to his face at times, and he was crying and he was saying Kitab or be killer. I'm Robbie Kitab, Robbie, Callum Robbie, the book of my Lord, the words of my Lord, like he completely transformed And subhanAllah you have to think about how the rage that he had against the Prophet slice and then for his father, who was the pharaoh of the Ummah, was blinding him from the beauty of faith and when he allowed Islam to enter into his heart. Look how much he changed, which shows you that what the

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

prophesy son wants it for his father. Now was his reality. And it was like our model of the Allah

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

On whose heart completely changed after becoming,

00:40:04--> 00:40:11

or you know, after being one of the greatest enemies of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he went around Mecca

00:40:12--> 00:40:22

after the Prophet sallallaahu Salam and he disposed of the idols, alongside the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abu Bakr Siddiq are the low tide and who commissioned him

00:40:24--> 00:41:05

on Oman, and when there was the Battle of the mudita Dean. He was one of those who went out as a commander under Abu Bakr Siddiq follow the law and one of the things that economic regretted so much is that unlike Khalid and his two friends, he never got to actually be alongside the prophets lie Selim. Right FISA de la he never got that that moment. Pilate had his moment and looked at Ahmed had his moment that is that acid and beyond, but he never got the right the profit slice on passed away. And he never got to be alongside the profit slice. I'm in those difficult moments. But now he is commissioned under Abu Bakar to study called the allowance.

00:41:07--> 00:41:27

And as a chef Rahim, Allah says economical, the Allahu Anhu was one of the Bravest Warriors strong, brave, and he was someone who would bring about, you know, a sense of energy and zeal to his companions in the battlefield. And then it comes down to the day of Yarmouk the Battle of Yermak

00:41:28--> 00:41:42

the Battle of Yarmouk, which of course we've talked about in great detail over the last few weeks under father little the law of Taiwan. Now remember also the law on who is where the Companions meets in this consequential battle against the Roman Empire.

00:41:43--> 00:42:16

And this was really the game changer, as we've said, between the Byzantine Empire, the Roman Empire, and this small group of Muslims. And I want you to imagine this day of Yarmouk now, and bringing it all back together from the neighborhoods. On that day of Yarmouk, you have had more either of the Allahu Anhu commanding the army? You have Ahmedabad or hostile the Allah Tada and leading, you have Eric Rama are the Allahu Taala and who are leading one flank. You have a hadith of Noah he shot the brother of Abuja

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

and the father in love Nkrumah

00:42:19--> 00:42:40

plunging into the battlefield and leading with great bravery. So all of these people that one spot the prophets lie some and those who orchestrated or the against the prophets lie Selim are now in Yarmouk, and they're all on one side. And they're all righteous and pious men at this point, who have completely changed their hearts.

00:42:41--> 00:42:45

And you have this man Nkrumah Radi Allahu taala. And who the son of Abuja

00:42:46--> 00:42:52

and how to draw the Allahu taala. And who is leading the army, he sees Ekrem going deep,

00:42:53--> 00:42:58

and he's breaking swords, and he's taking hit after hit after hit after hit.

00:42:59--> 00:43:02

And high literal. The law annual has this really emotional conversation with him.

00:43:04--> 00:43:44

He tells him Yeah, Ekrem don't plunge too deeply because your loss would be a severe hit for the muscles. We need you. You're going to heart like I need you to be a bit more strategic about this. You're going so deep, and we're outnumbered by the Romans here like we got to be strategic about this. And the last conversation Khalid has with Nkrumah the two men that were commanding the two flanks on the neighborhood Ekrem acesta Khalid alayka and Nia harlot leave me a harlot fella called Canada Kamara. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. ASABE if you have a past where you got to be alongside the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you got to be there with the Prophet

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

salallahu alayhi wa sallam. We're going to enter our abdomen, a Shabbat dinner, see Allah Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and me and my father were of the severest enemies of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam meaning you had your moment with the prophets like Selim. I didn't have my mom. I was his enemy in every single battle we fought. And I never had my moment you had your moment Oh harlot. And he says for Danny will cafiero Amma Salah for me. So let me expiate for all the evil that I did. Let me expiate for all the evil that I did at this point, Chroma had donated, he was a rich man he inherited the wealth of Abuja, donated that all for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And now here

00:44:24--> 00:44:32

he is in battle and telling Hadith How did you don't know what it's like to be me? You don't know the guilt that I carry, having fought the prophets lie some in every single battle.

00:44:33--> 00:44:44

And he said, the last thing he said to harlot he said, Look at cartel to rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a female Latina Kathira federal and Amina Rommel young.

00:44:45--> 00:44:54

He said, I fought the prophets lie some in so many battles. You want me to flee from the Romans today? You want me to flee from the Romans today? I said no way.

00:44:55--> 00:45:00

And he called out. I said, Who's going to go with me? And it had

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

ethanol he Sam said and America, I'm with you on the regional as well as that I'm with you.

00:45:05--> 00:45:24

And they went forth, and they had a major part to do with the victory on the day of your milk. And it was narrated that economics are the Allahu Taala and who suffered over 75 wounds on the day of Yarmouk, his body was wounded in every direction, on the day of Yermak

00:45:26--> 00:45:56

and then you have the beautiful ending of this man that comes up in many of the Ramadan fundraisers comes up in many of the Ramadan hookless. Because if you read in the books of tusky of the books of spirituality, there is a chapter called an ethos, selflessness and under pretty much every explanation of the Hadith that I you know, I had to come here to here but you have very clearly microfiber enough. See, no one of you truly believes and so he loves for his brother when he loves for himself. This story will show up almost an every single explanation of this hadith.

00:45:57--> 00:46:00

And it's basically after the Battle of Yarmouk, imagine the scene.

00:46:01--> 00:46:41

Economical, the Allahu Anhu is laying and he's wounded over 70 times. Next to him, or amongst the wounded that day and Hadith of Nakisha, the brother of Abuja, his uncle, and then just a few feet away from an hydroquinone, shall I Yeah, should not be an Obeah who was the brother of Abuja through his mother, right. He shared the same mother with Abuja and Abuja had tortured him and brought him back to Mecca forced him out of Assam and Allah revealed good yeah, by the end, Adina Estrada and firstly him Latok Natoma Rahmatullah, say, Oh, my servants who have transgressed against themselves, do not despair from the mercy of Allah. All three of them are now laying amongst the wounded.

00:46:43--> 00:46:50

And the water carrier, he said, I looked out at out to the wounded. And the first person I went to his Nkrumah, I mean, this is

00:46:51--> 00:47:39

one of the seeds of Quraysh, one of the leaders cards best friend said, I went out to Nkrumah, and I tried to give him water. And Nkrumah said, go to my brother, and had no Isha. And my uncle had Nisha, and check on him first. So he said, I carried the water, and I went to it had with it when he shot. And how did the Nishan said go to a Yash and check on him first. So he said, I carried the water to Yash. And then I asked her to go to my brother, so and so and so I went to him next. And he said, so I went around 10 men from the wounded, and each of them refused the water, and said, Go to my brother, go to my brother, go to my brother, go to my brother, he said, and so I went back to

00:47:39--> 00:47:52

economical the Allahu taala. And I found that he had died. Then I went to a hadith and he was dead, that I went to a Yash and he was dead. And then I went to the rest of the Southern men, and all of them had died a shahada that day,

00:47:53--> 00:48:00

all the Allahu Taala and who imaginary? So Subhanallah the ending of Nkrumah is the opposite of his father.

00:48:01--> 00:48:27

And it shows you the power of redemption of a man, and that this man dies as a shaheed. And while his father was too blinded by his greed, and oppose the profit slice, and I'm economic becomes the story of ethos, the story of selflessness that shows up in the books of Hadith, but it doesn't stop with him. His wife, Anakin, or the Allahu taala, Anna,

00:48:29--> 00:48:47

after ekpoma dies after he's murdered. She marries Harley Davidson, either the Allahu Anhu if you go back in the first playlist, then you go all the way down. The first highlight that we covered was actually not hired as a lead. It was this guy that was one of the first Muslims. So Khalid bin Saeed marries her

00:48:48--> 00:48:52

on the night of the Battle of martyrs suffer,

00:48:53--> 00:49:08

which is known as the Battle at the gates of Damascus. Shallow brother Hassan is here from Syrian form. So we hear about Saudi and the famous stories of sodium and last Prince and make it easy for our brothers and sisters in a shop in Syria and in Philistine and all over Allahumma Amin

00:49:09--> 00:49:28

There's a famous bridge in Syria, known as fun product on hacking, the bridge of hacking and there's a story from unpacking the widow of economic Nabi Jaha, who was also again, an evil woman at one time, beating the drums of persecution

00:49:29--> 00:49:36

against the profit slice I'm and now she's married to college in one city, and she married Harlem and sorry the night before marriage just suffer.

00:49:38--> 00:49:48

And he was martyred in that battle. So she was married to him for one night. And she picked up a tent pole, and she was able to take out seven Roman soldiers by herself.

00:49:50--> 00:49:57

And she survived the battle. So they named the bridge contract on hacking, the bridge of unpacking,

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

and then after harder than sorry

00:50:00--> 00:50:15

she passes away. The person who marries her is on would have been a hot Bob or the Allahu Taala and aroma or the law and who marries unpacking mental health and they have a daughter by the name of Fatima bin Tama. So Fatima, the daughter of

00:50:17--> 00:50:33

Fatima also was the name of the mother of unpacking faulty mental. Well, he didn't Malia they had this one daughter, Fatima, and she passes away as well about the Allahu Taala and her unpacking as a widow of honorable hubbub about the Allahu taala. And

00:50:34--> 00:51:17

they had one son between Nkrumah and McCain, whose name was also another entrepreneur Nkrumah. He became Muslim on the same day as his father. And he died as a Shaheed on the day of yarmulke, as well, he's counted amongst the shahada, we are Moroccan so therefore Ekrem had no lineage that outlived him. But Subhanallah in this story, again, is an incredible story of redemption shows you the way that a person's heart can change. It shows you that a way, the way that a man who is the son of the most evil that this OMA has seen, could become one of its most righteous could become one of its most distinguished worshipers. It shows you not to lose hope in people. It shows you not to lose

00:51:17--> 00:51:54

hope in yourself. You know, when you read a hadith about those that killed 99 people and those that killed you know, people who were forgiven for grievious crimes, you ask yourself, did I commit these evil sins did I do these evil deeds so it shows you the power of your own repentance, and it shows you how Allah subhanaw taala can write the story of a person so differently and what Allah subhanaw taala saw in the heart of Erica model, the Allahu Anhu that made him so worthy of having this ending of a Shaheed in the Battle of your walk instead of a death on the battle of better fighting the prophets lie some alongside his father was the fifth or owner of this ummah, we ask Allah to be

00:51:54--> 00:52:13

pleased with economics, to be pleased with him hacking, to be pleased with the righteous that have passed before us and to make us amongst the righteous as well. We ask Allah to accept our repentance to forgive us for our shortcomings, to show us mercy and to put mercy in our hearts and to accept our deeds despite their shortcomings. Allahumma I mean, is not going to know how you don't
