Assalamu alaikum Welcome to labor accounts with your brothers and sisters Welcome back to people have called on where every night I share with you a story about how one of our pious predecessors interacted with an IRA. So now we're halfway through, we're at the 15. Joe's, and the story that I'm going to share with you today, it's not about someone that we really know, it's not, it's not really about one of the sell offs that we can identify or a scholar or anything of that sort. And it doesn't necessarily, you know, interact with an idea or a particular shooter of the color. But it does interact with the first half of the program. So we've all heard of had judge news, if you

00:00:34--> 00:01:11

studied Islamic history, you've heard of head judge, and he's a very interesting character in Islamic history, because on one hand, he was a tyrant on another hand, on the other hand, he was someone that was able to stabilize the old man certain ways, and things of that sort. Nevertheless, he was definitely a tyrant, a dictator, and someone that that that pursued, some of the Sahaba even killed, you know, people like Sadie obaidul, the allot of time, and others, and being the brutal person that he was the ruthless man that he was, you know, he would issue that sentences very, very easily as a ruler. And somehow a lot. The thing about hijab when you study him, is that, you know,

00:01:11--> 00:01:48

in essence, if you wanted to be free from, you know, a punishment, or you wanted to get out of a punishment or a sentence, then what you had to do was you had to impress him. So you had to give him a really impressive, you know, dream interpretation, you had to give him, you know, some really impressive, heady something to really impress him and to amuse him in essence, so head judge has this young man that's on death row, he's about to kill this young man. And as he's about to kill this young man, this woman comes and starts screaming at the top of her lungs pleading that had judged does not kill him. And this was the mother of that young man. And somehow a lot listen to

00:01:48--> 00:02:29

what she says as she's calling out to him and screaming and shouting at the top of her lungs. She says to him, hello, Kevin, lovey Heather, Coachella mean, honestly, Ella, I asked you by the one who omitted the word Kela. From the top half. That's awkward. Like what what are you talking about? I asked you by the one who omitted Keller from the top half. So he was about to kill this young man that he stopped. He said, What are you talking about? So she said that Allah subhanho wa Taala did not use Kela in the top half in innisfil. Elena so she so he said, What are you talking about top half of what? So she said a loss of Hannah Hotel in the first 15 years of the call and did not use

00:02:29--> 00:03:05

the word kennela rather than the 16th. Just it's the first time we see it and sort of muddy. And we're at loss of hundreds of ss kelas and activo. Mayor cola that barely we will we will write what they have said. So somehow a lot, you know, a judge was impressed by her knowing that and the word Kela is like an emphasize No, right? It has all these awkward translations very early indeed. depending on whose translation you're reading, but it's an emphasize No. And a loss of Hannah and Todd did not use it until the second half of the quarter. And why is the story relevant to us, because it shows us that's upon a lot the literacy that the oma had of the poor, and was just

00:03:05--> 00:03:41

phenomenal. This is just some random woman, right from the street screaming to protect her son, but the literacy that she had of the whole and was that high that she noticed something that you know, scholars might have missed. And this was the legacy really, particularly in Iraq, and other companions that went there, the way that they they just instilled the love of the poor and the people and the way that an average person who, you know, without Islam probably wouldn't have ever learned to read or write. Not only knew the Quran and his recitation, but learned it's tough to see it and paid attention even to the subtleties and to the intricacies of the code. And that's the love

00:03:41--> 00:04:06

of the program that was inspired of this in this honor. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to also make us people of color and to make us the people who love the ad, and who pay attention as Allah Subhana Allah speaks to us and who knows what Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is, you know, the message that the last point I was trying to deliver to us alone, I mean, does that mean Oh, Hydra inshallah Tada, I'll see you for the second half of the quarter and now starting tomorrow was Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
