cinematic American slavery captured your brothers and sisters Welcome back to people of color and where every night I share with you a story about how one of our pious predecessors interacted with an eye of the Quran Subhana Allah, you know, we often hear about great scholars in the past, and you would think that they were always great scholars. And if anything, these last few episodes, I would hope would have taught you is that a lot of people came from a pretty rough past or they did things in the past.
And some of those things were actually really, really, really nasty. One such person is a man by the name of filleted Narayan all the a lot of time and what to him Allah, his nickname just to give you an idea as email and the amount of the two columns. So this is a man that is found in basically every book of teskey, every book of spirituality that would eventually live this great life of asceticism and zones and so on and so forth. But little Do we know Subhana Allah what this man used to be like, it'll be a lot of time. I know, he was actually a highway Robert Caldera
between Syria and hold a son. So he used to rob people, he used to attack people, between Hassan which is the Persian areas, the Persian territories, and Syria. And he'd constantly attack you know, these people, these caravans as they were going through, he'd steal from them. He would be violent with them. And he was notorious for what he did. And to make it even worse for life says that he used to commit Zina all the time, so he would actually commit adultery with some of the women of these caravans that he was robbing. And he said, there was a particular woman that I used to go behind, you know, this particular word, this particular Valley, and I meet her on a nightly basis
and I committed dinner with her so so Pamela, you know, think about a man that's constantly got you know, that's going every night and just soiling himself and sin and then has a hot arm job during the day filleted, has the most how Tom job during the date, which is he's a highway robber and he has the worst night possible, right by committing Zina on a nightly basis. He says, until one night that I was on my way, to commit Zina. And as I was on my way, I heard a man and one narration It's a family member of that woman, and he was reciting this from salted Hadid and I'm yet needed larina Amador and Tasha Hello Michaela. One another amin and have voila Kono Kadena also the Kitab I'm in
South LA LA LA him will Amma do for Casa Kuru home Kathy Ramadan fasting one. This is the 16th verse of certain Hadid, which is actually associated with the Toba with the repentance of many people in the past where Allah says, has the time not come for those who have believed that their hearts should become humble to a loss of penance, or that their hearts should humble themselves and submit themselves to a loss of hundreds and that which has come down of the truth. And do not be like those who are given the Scripture before you. And a long period passed. And so their hearts heart And once again, and many of them are defiantly disobedient. So for later the law I know he hears this idea
and he says, but I'll be quiet and he says yes. Oh my Lord. Now is the time now is the time soulfully said that I you know, I left and I didn't come up with that woman. And as I was walking, he said I saw a group of people. And they were talking amongst themselves and this caravan was deciding whether to go or whether to stay put. So one group of people said no, let's go. Another group of people said let's wait, why did they say let's wait they said fair enough. Well, Lila editorially said because full blade is on this path youngstar Elena and Elena is going to attack us so let's let's wait let's not let's not go right now because we don't want to come into contact with
full ape. So fillet is listening to these people talk about how much they fear him a group of Muslims a group of believers a group of Hajaj perhaps right and they don't want to meet for late and they're afraid of light and that's that's that's you know basically the the main thing they're taking into consideration with whether or not they should stay or go soulful. Dave says for God to upkeep I started to cry, and I held my beard. And I said, as I was holding my beard and a bee lady fil marassi will call one minute muslimeen una harvoni. He said that, you know, during the night I spend I spend my nights soiling myself in the disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala and you have
Muslims that fear me during the day, one out of La San Juan de la him in early Altair there I don't see that Allah Subhana Allah allowed me to hear that conversation except that Allah Subhana Allah wanted me to come back a lot wanted me to return to Him. And He says Allahumma inni took to a lake wa jal to tell the team when Java invaded Iraq, he said, Oh Allah, I have repented to you. And I've made my Toba to live in the company of a Muslim Hello. So he moved to Mecca, and he's going to stay in the companionship of the scholars of Mecca. And he stays in the presence of the character until he eventually becomes the Mufti of Mecca. So how Latin becomes emammal how domain and for later the
law of Thailand who before he did that, he actually spent some time trying to visit each and every single one of his victims, everyone that
He can remember that he'd stolen from, he goes to them and he gives them back their goods and he begs them for forgiveness, and then he moves to the base of how long and the rest is history. So panela all from this one. Isn't it time? Isn't it time? Isn't it time Allah is constantly asking each and every single one of us, isn't it time for your heart to submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala and to not allow your heart to heart and once again, isn't it time to make a permanent change in your life and come close to Allah subhanho wa Taala we won't all become scholars like for ladle the law and home. But at least we could become decent believers that are within the mercy of Allah
subhanho wa Taala. And that found that find themselves in his in the favorable company of the believers. And so the bone in the Shahada and the MBR on the Day of Judgment. So we asked a lot of forgive us and we asked Allah subhanaw taala to not make us a heedless people and to allow us to respond to that call and to allow us to die upon that called Lama.
