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

nada de la hiltunen me when I was wanting to subpoena local Salinas alum about a karate kata silica Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. While early, he was happy to sell him to semen concealer. First of all, I want to thank you all for having me from the desert, and very happy to be here. And my trip to the UK, I just wanted to correct the brother just just, it is my first time visiting as a speaker to the UK.

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

Come to the Lauterbrunnen I've been all over, I didn't realize how spread out everything was, but everyday spending like six, seven hours in the car going into different places and things of that sort, because we've been staying here in Birmingham. But obviously the granting out some really refreshed right now and happy because I know that there's no two hour drive up to this intelecom isn't like a 10 minute drive back to the hotel inshallah.

00:00:48--> 00:01:22

But you know, the topic actually, Capella is very significant. And it's something where we could where we could, you know, elaborate on a lot of different aspects and things of that sort, because we're talking about role models. And when we talk about the Sahaba, if you ask anyone to talk about the Sahaba for 30 minutes, it's absolutely impossible. Right? In fact, it's, it's pretty much impossible to talk about once a hobby and do justice to that as a hobby in 30 minutes. And of course, it's an injustice to the profits of life other than to try to talk about the profits on the law it is within 30 minutes or an hour or even a year. Because there's so much You know, there's so

00:01:22--> 00:01:45

many there are so many aspects of their stories that can really be life changing. And so what I'm going to do inshallah, tada for the next 30 minutes, let's just, I want to, I want us to live a moment with this habit. And I want you to imagine this gathering, right? Three men sitting together, all men have been to photography, a lot of time,

00:01:46--> 00:02:17

combat and not for the long run. And beloved Nora, life will be a long time. This is that they're sitting together. And they're reflecting now on the law of Thailand who obviously went through a lot in his life, right, but he was not one of the week who accepted Islam first. In fact, binominal de la on who accepted Islam, he accepted Islam, you know, coming off as being an oppressor of Muslims. Right. So he's sitting with hubbub and beat up now about in Milan,

00:02:18--> 00:02:49

Amaro de la of Thailand, who wants to sort of you know, gauge what what their experience was before Islam. Right. So what was the torture like whenever you became Muslim? What did you have to go through? So above or below Thailand? Well, His story is basically told by the marks on his body, how about all the a lot of time on who lifts up his shirt, and he shows his back to topple the low tide. And the back of the barrel the law has no skin on it whatsoever.

00:02:50--> 00:03:13

And Amaro the law of Thailand, who is sitting he says, What happened to you? You know what, why is the skin Why is there no skin on your back? So Kabbalah the law of Thailand who starts to explain to Arma and he says that when I became Muslim, I was asleep. And my master, you know, was a wicked woman. And what she would do was, she would take burning hot cold.

00:03:14--> 00:03:53

And she would she would tie me down and then she would pour it on the back of my head and see what allow it to go down my back and burn off the skin. And you can imagine like the mulching and those types of things, right. So it would burn off the back of my skin. And it would burn from so it was the the mark started from the back of his head from right down from right at his neck all the way down his back. Right and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam could not do anything. The Prophet soul I saw them you know, could was not was not in a position of strength where he could come and he could stop her. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would call out to Him, reminding him to

00:03:53--> 00:04:36

be patient and reminding him to make do and the profits will allow it to sell it may draw against his master and he made against his master until hubbub about the law of Thailand who says she lost her mind. And she started to take the hot cold, she started to put it on top of her own head and burn her own head in her own back. Right. So she went insane. And that is how hubub except that is snub below the allotted time. It says to him something very interesting. Although the low It was crazy, but I used to call it behind our master who is freed by our master, our moda who is freed by our mode, why? Because he held it out in such a high respect. And at the same time, but Allah Allah,

00:04:36--> 00:04:58

who was freed by who by the Columbia Law School, so our master who was freed by our master and all the law, one was expressing to belong, you know, I wish you could be the halifa you know, Subhana Allah with everything that you went through for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But he said, I've got one question for you open up. Why is it when you were being tortured The only thing you were saying was

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

I had one, one. Right? Why is that the only thing that you were saying? I understand I know what you went through and I'm not putting you down or belittling your trials. Why is the only thing that you said? You know, why were you only saying I had an accident? Oh, Bella, what was that all about? So below all the a lot of time who started to explain his story and level the amount of time who was a slave of who?

00:05:26--> 00:05:48

Have who omiya right. And basically, beloved, accepted Islam because of Islamophobia. Right? Imagine someone walking into the Muslim and saying, I want to become Muslim. I want to take Shahada. Why because I was watching, you know, Fox News or whatever it is somebody that I don't know if you have Fox News, or what's what's your anti Islam news station here?

00:05:50--> 00:06:08

I guess everyone has their own thing. But you know, for us, it's for us. It's it's Fox News, right? We call it mocs news, right, where you've got a bunch of a bunch of islamophobes and people who hate us Now, imagine someone walking in and saying, you know, I, I'm here to become Muslim. Why? Who gave you that while I read the book, the prophet of doom.

00:06:10--> 00:06:34

Like what? You know, you're here to become Muslim, because you heard bad things about Islam below the level and who became Muslim because he heard them criticizing and attacking the Prophet slice on them. And he could catch when they were criticizing and attacking the province licen them and slandering him, he could cancel with the low tide. I know that the reason why they hated him was because I have to hate. So he said, I'm with I'm with him.

00:06:35--> 00:07:08

I'm with him. And bill out of the allotted time, who followed the religion of the prophets, Eliza them without ever having met the prophets, Eliza. And from that they would tie him up and they would torture him and they left him dehydrated, they would not give him food for two consecutive days, no food, right and no drink. And then when they saw that he wasn't budging, they dragged him to the desert, and they tied him up. And they left him to burn in the hot sand. And then they put a boulder that took over eight men to carry and pushed it on top of him to crush him.

00:07:09--> 00:07:50

All of this from what? From hearing them talk ill of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And the only thing below the line he was saying was I had one, one. And although the law I'm saying, why, why didn't you say out of man? Why didn't you say to him? Why didn't you say a llama journey he will see but he wasn't afraid. I mean, you know, why didn't you start to make these dots and things of that sort. And what he did not have the alarm on who say to him, he said, had I known other than 100 effort, I would have said it. But I knew nothing else about a loss of habitat, except that he was one supernova. It wasn't that below the low on who read a really good book, or listen to a

00:07:50--> 00:08:34

really powerful lecture. Below knew that a loss of habitat it was one. And just by knowing a loss of habitat, it was one and understanding that was the truth. He was willing to die for that. And look at the amount of torture that he went through right now to comply with the law and hope he's the odd man out in this discussion. all going to be a thought before it's not what was he right. He was a drunk. He was absolutely ruthless. Subhana Allah. He used to beat his slaves until he got tired. You know, he fulfilled all of the practices of jolly. He did everything that they were doing. And in fact, he was the foremost in sharp in evil. Right, so Amaro de la Han, who was the odd man out when

00:08:34--> 00:08:52

he heard about Islam. You know, what did he want to do? He wanted to kill the prophet SAW a lot how it was set up. And in fact, the only time you know somehow you look at Fabiola Han Han who what he represents. Right? All over the kebab was the last person anyone would have considered, anyone would have considered to be a Muslim.

00:08:53--> 00:08:58

Right? And you look at his story under the law, who basically with him?

00:09:00--> 00:09:03

He was someone who used to get drunk with his buddies every single night.

00:09:04--> 00:09:32

And one night he couldn't find anyone to get drunk with. So he said All right, I'll just go to the cabin and do so many bags, I guess. Right? I'll go do some worship because that's how we think right? And a lot of people think that way. Like I've got nothing better to do. There's nothing on TV anyway. You know, there's nothing there's nothing interesting. Let me go to the message. Let me go listen to this helical me. A lot of people think that way I'll do a bad job. Whenever there's nothing else going on. I've got nothing better than I might as well go to this hologram as they said, Alright, I'll go to the cabin. I'll do some falafel. I'll do some very bad. And he goes to the

00:09:32--> 00:09:57

Caribbean. He sees the profits on a lot he was all by himself in the middle of the night crane pmln. And on top of the law and who says I want to hear what he's talking about. So he gets under the cloth of the cabinet, from the other side of the cabinet. And he goes around until he comes in front of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he's face to face with the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam and also loss Isom is reciting what sort of

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

Susan have gone

00:10:00--> 00:10:04

Right, amazing surah and Ahmad

00:10:05--> 00:10:49

is saying to himself, this guy must be a poet's right? This guy must be a poet. Pamela these words are so beautiful, but he didn't consider it might be from Allah didn't wake him up he said this must be the word these must be the words of a poet. And the Prophet sighs I'm recited the next day and certain hapa one man who will be tonisha Callie Lama to mean one. These are not the words of a poet little Do you believe? an homage to the loved one who said whoa, in the hula soccer, or he is definitely I mean, he's a cat and he's a soothsayer. How does he know what I was thinking of right now? What do you call Nika? Paulina Mata that Garrone, he's talking to himself, and the next idea

00:10:49--> 00:11:27

that happens to come? And these are not the words of a soothsayer. Little Do you remember? All everything was so blown away. He went back to his home, he got sick, he fell ill, and he was confused. Right. But he wasn't ready to accept this now at that moment. He didn't, you know, somehow he did not know. You know, is this is this for real or not? I don't know. I don't know if this is something I'm willing to do right now. You know, this is going against everything that I've stood for, for my entire life. His father, Uncle Bob, was the guy who beat him normative, no fame. Right? Well, the allow I'm who because he started talking about Joe hate in the first place. He's the one

00:11:27--> 00:11:55

that beat him out of Mecca. And all in the hot tub is the flagbearer of Christ. He's the one that goes out and argues with other people, but whose tribe is better? He represents Christ and everything. Right? So he says to himself, after some times, he's getting confused. He walks by one of the women who's making his up one of the Sahaba, who's making his law and he says to her, where are you going? And she says, we're going to escape your persecution because you're not letting us worship Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:11:56--> 00:12:05

and Amaro the law of Thailand, who wished her well? May Allah be with you? And she went back and told her husband, she said, guess what happened to me today I was walking by.

00:12:07--> 00:12:15

And this is what he told me and he laughed and what did he say? He said, The Hema the donkey of El hapa would become Muslim before Omar would become Muslim.

00:12:16--> 00:12:56

Like Yeah, you think Omar would become Muslim? Right? The donkey of his father would become Muslim before him. So panela he didn't see potential Yeah, whatever. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw potential in him and the Prophet slicin and saw potential and everybody even Abuja on the province I sent him said, Allahu Akbar is that Islam, the Accademia Amara and Oh Allah strengthen Islam through one of the two, almost one of them was almond milk. The other one is Ooh, I would have known he shot a Buddha. No one even knew his name. Not many of you probably knew his name was honorably sham. That's because we know him in history as the father of ignorance. abou john, that's

00:12:56--> 00:13:34

his legacy. He could have had a different legacy, but he chose another way. Right? And so I'm gonna toggle the alarm who's getting confused? Then how does he decide he's gonna solve this problem? First, I'm the hilltop says, You know what? To put in all this confusion? I'm just gonna kill the prophets, Allah La Jolla. So let me just go kill him. So I can stop all this. This is making the you know, this is the second method. He Murray right. This is causing us to have this disquieting doubt this is bothering me. Right? Let me just kill him and get get it over with. So I'm gonna be allowed to and he was on his way to kill the prophets lie Selim walking around with his sword. And when you

00:13:34--> 00:13:43

see all of the Allahu anhu mad, you know why he's mad? Are you you know that he's gonna do something serious? He comes across one of the Sahaba which one of those? So how did he come across?

00:13:50--> 00:13:55

You know what I like to make people read. So I'm not even gonna say the name. Go home and look it up.

00:13:56--> 00:14:35

One of the Sahaba says to me a long time, whoa. Where are you going? says, you know, I'm going to put an end to this. And I'm going to get rid of my home. And so I'm just going to live he didn't he didn't beat around the bush or anything. He wasn't diplomatic about it. So then he tells him you should probably take care of the people in your own household first. What about your own sister first? So So Pamela, I'm one of the a lot of time who turns his way to the house of his sister. That goes to Fatima. We all know the story. Right? He goes to Fatima and thought he was Fatima was married to who? Sorry to say it all the time. One of the other tunnel busting agenda and so Pamela

00:14:35--> 00:14:59

I'll hop off be zaidan router interface for becoming Muslim Amaro de la Thailand who walks into that house says what's going on he could hear the poor ad being recited from outside he goes into a rage right? Beats on saying that news eight and then he hits a sister as we all know this, the story goes in these types, you know, and somehow Allah hits a sister sees her blood, he's a little bit soften from that. Read sort of for her

00:15:00--> 00:15:45

Just the first few hours of sort of Baja, and that changes his life completely. Right. So, before Africana, I'm going to some sci fi or old comedy that Allah has been well known for I have a definite agenda to hire to haha that Amaro the long time who became Muslim from a few words of Baja. And because of those few words of Baja, he was more beautiful than the sun when it has risen to its full and more clear than the moon in his belief. And he lit them up. He brought the oma to its potential. He fired the oma up many hands, he answered into Jana and Jana greeted him and he agreed agenda, right goes to the prophets lie Selim becomes Muslim. Within 24 hours, he's going around

00:15:45--> 00:16:21

telling everybody in Mecca Hey, I'm Muslim, and he's fighting people because he's Muslim. Everyone's trying to jump on him because he's Muslim, completely changed his life around completely changed his life around what was the difference between the first experience and the second experience. The first, which one was a more powerful experience, do you think reading a few out from Baja, or having the province listening right in front of you. And the operand is reading your mind? This one's more powerful, but his heart wasn't ready the first time. He wasn't ready to accept belief the first time. Right, he wasn't ready to make a commitment the first time, once he became ready to make a

00:16:21--> 00:16:38

commitment, the poor and although it was less of a powerful experience, look what it did for his life. And then history takes place, then we know I'm going to follow the low tide and the way we know him, but Alma wasn't always like that. And you know how they say

00:16:39--> 00:17:02

every every saint has a past. And every sinner has a future. You never know. Subhan Allah. And in fact, if you look at all the law tada Andrew later on in his life, I want to know how powerful the law is seen by the companions. He's laughing, and then he's crying. He's laughing, and then he's crying. He's laughing, and he's crying, and they're thinking to themselves, you know, he's gone crazy.

00:17:03--> 00:17:46

He's gone mad. Why is he laughing? And then crying? What is this all about? And then go to on top of the logs on iPhone, he says, The reason why I was laughing because I remember in the days of john Leo, and everybody would bring their gods to worship. Right? As I was on my way to the cab, I realized I didn't have any God with me. I forgot my idol. Right? It's not like I forgot my cell phone at home. Or my mobile phone. I'm sorry. Excuse my American, you know, I forgot my you know, it's not I forgot my my idol at home. So he's like, oh, man, what am I gonna do? So he takes his dates. Then he takes a tree branch, and he starts taking the dates and going 123 then he shapes his

00:17:46--> 00:17:51

branch in a way that it becomes an idol. So he starts worshiping not so sorry, this is gonna be my God.

00:17:52--> 00:17:57

Then he started laughing again. I said, So what happened? He said that I got hungry.

00:17:59--> 00:18:00

So I ate my God.

00:18:01--> 00:18:27

reflecting on how silly he was in the days of janelia, right, how silly he was in the days of Dahlia, why was he crying? Because Allah will follow the law. And when that big strong man did that, you know, follow through with the practice of janelia where Unfortunately, they used to bury their young daughters alive. And he was remembering the day that he did the same thing. And he never forgave himself for that. So he would start to cry. Here's the thing.

00:18:28--> 00:19:12

How did that ruthless men? How did that man who had no future who was going to die a druggie with absolutely no hope? How did he become Ahmed bin hubub and farrokh Allah euphoric Albanian happy well belted, the one that the one who who distinguishes between truth and falsehood, the one who the prophets lie Selim says no canon, IBM and bacula can Allah there has to be a prophet after me. It would have been the one who was so ruthless he could have done that to his own daughter would now cry at night. Crying not not a few tears, not crocodile tears. No, he would cry at night. So much so and he would say, I'm afraid that the camel and the rock that has been overburdened will testify

00:19:12--> 00:19:48

against me on the Day of Judgment. He was so worried about his lie about his about his flock. Now this was the same man who was essentially heartless before it's not right. He could do anything. Nothing was gonna soften him nothing was gonna get to him when the famine hit. I'm going to Amanda the year of ashes 33 years after Hitler 36 years after his struck the oma and people were dying by the 10s and they didn't have any food the halifa of the Muslims on top of the A lot of times who said I'm not gonna eat any meats, and I'm not going to eat any food until the rest of this oma eats food.

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

Right. And he saw even his son carrying a piece of watermelon. And he went chasing after his son and he refused to let him eat a piece of watermelon because everyone else has seen before us

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

And as a dad says that we were afraid that if the year of famine would have come if you read the biography of America for probably a long time, I know his physical description he's described with having two different colors, and some narrations he's white and some narrations. He's yellow. Right. And it was because of the famine, the lack of nutrition, he actually changed colors all the time, who said that said, we knew that he was going to die. There was no way this man was going to live. But look how compassionate he became, somehow love for his people. And he used to say kayfabe on any shot, no lie, whatever you'll see when he might have use evil. You know, how can I How can I call

00:20:37--> 00:21:16

myself a shepherd of this flock when I am not struck with what they are struck with? No, I'm not gonna eat anything. compassion, compassion for the animals, compassion for the human beings justice, the same man that was a lot of that used to punish people that used to torture people. This man now became one of the most just human beings in history and a standard for justice, even to the United Nations. Right, there's a statement from America. Fabiola. How can you enslave a man that was born free? That's from Alma that's in the United Nations Charter today. Michael Hart when he wrote his book, The 100 most influential men in the world to us are going to be allowed to add on who comes

00:21:16--> 00:21:56

right after Obamacare, and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. To them, they put him at number 54 or 52, somewhere in the 50s. Right. But that's an outstanding statement. What would he have been without Islam? What would have been without a snap? He would have been powerful in his time. But he would have died a drunk with absolutely no future, right. But he became a man of justice on the low on who was so harsh on women, before Islam became one of the standards of women's rights. You know, and I know that this is a very touchy issue. I don't like to get into controversial issues too much. But almost all the time who was appointing female scholars to the Shura, she thought that

00:21:58--> 00:22:26

she was in charge of overseeing all of the fiscal transactions as well, you're in oma almost all the time. I knew when he was standing in the masjid. And he said that, you know, we're gonna go ahead and put a limit on the monitor on the diary, because people are getting ridiculous. Imagine what ridiculous was back then what it is now, so panela. So we're gonna limit it now. Right? We're going to, we're gonna put, and one of the women stands up and says, No, no, no, you can't do that along the messenger slice. And I did not do that. Normally, the alarm set down, he said, the woman is right and almost wrong.

00:22:28--> 00:22:51

Not talking, I'm not going to do this anymore. I'll let all the low on who used to be a female slave until he would get tired. He reflected on that. So he would get tired. Right? There was once a man who wanted to complain about his wife. Right? So he said, I'm gonna go complain to own a pop up about you when he was the halifa. Right? I'm gonna go tell him, but he's gonna put you in your place. He goes to the house of Oman. And what does he hear? He hears almost wife yelling at him.

00:22:52--> 00:23:29

He's like, wow, alright, maybe this wasn't a good idea. So he's walking away from the house and all the law and opens his door. He says, What did you want? And he said, Never mind. I was coming for something. But I saw that you had the same problem I'm having. So he said, What are you talking about? He said, You know, my wife was giving me a hard time so I was coming to complain to you, but I see that your wife is giving you a hard time too. He sets up how to love with all that they put up with us. Then we can let them sometimes rent we can let them sometimes let their emotions out. It's okay. That's the same human being. What happened to him? Well, Sula, sallAllahu, wasallam saw good

00:23:29--> 00:24:07

traits and even our real thought and he made your art for him. And the most unjust man became the most just men. Right? The man who lacked compassion became one of the most compassionate people ever known to mankind. Subhana Allah, this is an amazing thing. And now what are we talking about? Let's go back to the mejlis we were talking about the city we were talking about right Amato hanging out with banana and kebab began and Habad were tortured. And now they're honored. Now they're wearing good clothes. Now they're from the scholars of the oma. Now this will have are looking up to them. This is the golden age of Islam now under Islam is essentially spreading throughout the world at

00:24:07--> 00:24:26

this point, and beyond cabella from the two most honored men, and on top of the Allahu anhu, who spent a few years you know, in the early years of Islam, opposing it with all of his strength and all of his heart and all of his mind was now the reason for it spread.

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

times can change. And why is this so significant when we're looking at the Sahaba, because for every single Companion of the Prophet sallallahu, it was some male or female, rich or poor, black or white, whatever it is, we can find the narrative we can find something that represents a little bit about ourselves. We can find a story that relates, we can find it in the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We can find it in the companions, we can always find something that relates to us. And essentially what that means is that we never have an excuse.

00:25:01--> 00:25:45

We never have an excuse. If Allah Subhana Allah would have made all of the Sahaba men and women that were righteous before Islam and big belong to a certain social class, right and never have to go through trials and never have to suffer with their families. You know what, we would probably be in trouble we have an excuse. Right? But because we look at them, we don't have an excuse. Because look what they became. Why? Because they allowed Islam to transform them. They allowed a loss of Hannah data to enter into their hearts. Once Allah subhanaw taala conquers the hearts. So part of law, there is no stopping your potential at that point. You can go so so so far, and this is what we see

00:25:45--> 00:26:26

with the Sahaba. They had a certain confidence they had a love for their Deen, they had that was not out of the arrogance on top of the law and who was a type of person, you trashes lineage, you talk about his lineage, you're going to be in trouble. Right? You try to take away from the dignity of honor for totally alone, you might get punched in the face, when he enters into Jerusalem, the same human being the same person who was not arrogant, who was the flagbearer of grace, when he enters into the courts, and they have a grand reception for him set up for him. Right. They've got their spears, you know, making a shadow, they've got the red carpet off for him. Right? The patriarch is

00:26:26--> 00:27:04

waiting for him. The Emperor of Rome is waiting from delegates from all over the world are waiting to give him the keys to Jerusalem. They have some of the Sahaba sitting there dressed in an honorable Wait, right there waiting to greet him and be allowed to I mean, how does he come in? He got a servant with him. So he tells the servant look at the justice, he tells his servant he says, look, you know, we have one, we have one horse. You ride it half the way and I ride it half the way. is Pamela serve it right? You write it have to wait, alright, it has to wait. He said, Okay. So whenever they started coming close to Jerusalem on top of the line will fell into a mud puddle. And

00:27:04--> 00:27:38

he was already wearing clothes that has 17 stitches in them. Right. And so it's already looking really, really, really bad. And then the surgeon says, you know, you want to switch spaces. Now we're getting close to the foot. He says no, a deal's a deal. You stay on there. As they're approaching quotes. Everyone's waiting for the honorable, honorable hubub, who was mentioned in their Bible, right? There are various sources about the Jews and the Christians saying there are references to the man who would take the key to Jerusalem in the Bible about all of this, you know, unique qualities of armor, Ababa, the Aloha, they see him coming in, and he's running with the

00:27:38--> 00:27:58

horse. And he's got the clothes with the stitches and things of that sort. He's got the mud all over him. And he's running towards and this is the man who's coming to take the key for Jerusalem. One of the biggest conquests in history which there was no bloodshed, by the way, right? And VEDA, Jolla comes to Oman

00:27:59--> 00:28:01

and Barbados says to homeless, a top notch

00:28:02--> 00:28:03

wasn't arrogant man

00:28:05--> 00:28:14

who lived a very simple life also. But he says to him, and also top, you know, you're making us look bad. Why did you do that? Couldn't you have worn something else? Why did you do that? Right?

00:28:15--> 00:28:57

And what is unreal, supposedly allow him to do, he pushes a barbell, and he says, I wish I would have heard that from anyone. But you know, no, Coleman has done a lot of Islam, well enough to lean and there is certainly lady as under the law, we are people who have lost patata honor through our faith, if we seek that honor, through any other means we will be humiliated. We were not humiliated. Whenever we were good Muslims in our history. Why? Because whenever we live Islam in our lives, we benefit society. Society wanted the Allahu anhu in Jerusalem because they knew he was adjustment. Society knew what Muslims had to contribute. And for some reason, even we as Muslims, we think that

00:28:57--> 00:29:38

you know, sometimes subconsciously, everything that's happening in the Muslim world today, the reason why Muslims are backwards, is because of their snom. Right? It's because of the shediac. Right? It's because they they're not willing to let go. And that's why they're backwards. But you know, what, through the end of the semester, through this Dean, Allah Subhana, WA, tada transforms, one of the most backward societies and turned them into a gold standard through Islam. It was through Islam, they became dignified. It was through the accountability they feel towards their Creator and to society. They became dignified. And you know what? The whole world is in a great

00:29:38--> 00:29:59

intellectual depth, you know that to us now. Everyone knows that. And obviously you as university students, you studied law you're studying it been rushed, right? You study math, you're studying human play, and you're studying any subject Muslims contributed towards the had it not been for Islam? Do you really think those societies would have achieved what they achieved? Absolutely not Islam as well.

00:30:00--> 00:30:35

cause them to be dignified. Islam is what caused them to progress. And that's how we become role models. Whenever we see guys that through Allah Subhana Allah, even if we have as dark of a past as I'm gonna call thought, even if everything is against us if the odds are against us like banana and kebab, Allah subhanaw taala will allow us to be honored. I'll leave you with one story. It's not the story of a Sahabi I got the five minutes I'm probably going to go a little bit more. So I promise I won't go too much more inshallah time. But, you know, it's not a story of us a hobby, but it shows you where we work. It shows you at what level we were, and the dignity that we had. You know,

00:30:35--> 00:31:10

nowadays we're apologetic about our Deen we try to run away from our game. We feel like we have something to apologize for it. It's like the first thing whenever you meet someone is like, please don't think that I'm violent. Please don't think that we oppress our women, please. You know, we're, we're okay. We're okay. We're acceptable. love us, please. You know, it's like, and then of course, you got the other extreme, which is crazy. Like fanatical. I'm not talking about that. I'm saying the attitude that we should be we should shy away from our Deen. But people are scared of what the deen can do. Right? People are scared of people who actually you know, those who hate Islam are

00:31:10--> 00:31:46

scared of allowing Islam to come to us. Right? I'm not talking about Hadoop. And I'm not even talking about that. I'm not talking about that all I'm talking about people are scared if Muslims actually start to hold on to their Deen, you know, they had an IDF soldier. I remember just two years ago, it was published in the hearts and he said the day we will fear the Muslims is whenever they start going to their mosques for the federal prayer. That's the day we'll be scared of the Muslims. So now right now we're not worried about them. You know, when they start praying fudger Ironically, the same thing so a lot of Deen Rahim Allah Allah said, all those years ago, you know,

00:31:46--> 00:32:02

almost 1000 years ago, that whenever we are printing a theme, then we can go right not to harm anyone not to kill any innocent people not to be terrorists, but to show there is of Islam. And I want you to I want you to think about this. I'm going to tell you one story. A while back, it

00:32:05--> 00:32:16

was a great scholar. And in Iraq, one of the focal hub right off one of the jurists of Allah. And setubal buckler about colonial Allah was invited in the year 1001

00:32:17--> 00:32:52

to visit the patriarch of Rome, right. Now imagine, you know, we're getting invitations nowadays, at least in the United States, whenever Muslim leaders get invited. Like, everything goes out the window, like whenever the pope visited the United States, it was like they gave him they gave him calligraphy, they started kissing his hand, everything like I was like, Come on go. You know, I went back and about Kalani wasn't having all of that. Right. But they wanted to invite him to sort of put the Muslims down. So they invited the greatest scholar of the Muslims, he comes into there, he walks there. That's how a lot whenever he gets there, and he notices something, you know, they understood

00:32:52--> 00:33:13

when they were talking about the Muslims visiting, they knew that the Muslims had certain things they would observe. So they said, Look, when he walks in here, he's not gonna bow to the Emperor, everybody else is, that's gonna look really bad for us. Right? Because they would always have the Emperor sit high on the high chair, right? So he's, he's not gonna bounce the Emperor. Right? So what did they do? They actually made like a small arc.

00:33:14--> 00:33:17

So that whenever you enter the room, you have to answer like this.

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

Right?

00:33:20--> 00:33:22

Well, back in the doctor land, he figured it out.

00:33:24--> 00:33:27

He walked up there, and he saw what they did. So he went like this.

00:33:32--> 00:33:52

Seriously, 1001 Look at this. Look at the honor of it's not right. I'm not doing I'm not bowing to no human being. Right? He walks in there. He enters that way. So then they start having a conversation. And they purposely planned that the patriarch would not enter until after he came, right. So whenever the patriarch entered,

00:33:54--> 00:34:14

they had another high tear for him. And they had a small chair for chef have a bucket a bucket running next to him. Right. And whenever he came in, everybody started to surround him kisses hands, they started to light candles around him, they started to spray the sense and all that type of stuff. And they pulled out their scrolls and everyone was walking with it like all hell, right? Oh, Buck is sitting there looking at it like okay.

00:34:15--> 00:34:17

So whenever he comes

00:34:18--> 00:34:24

back in about Kalani, he doesn't sit down. He stands next to him. And he says, so how are the wife and kids doing?

00:34:26--> 00:34:28

And then everybody goes, Oh,

00:34:29--> 00:34:59

he didn't just go there. And you really just say that the wife and kids, right? Don't you know that? You know, we as men of God, we as monks, we don't get married. Right? How dare you say that you're being so insulting. So set up a bucket about Kalani, he goes to panela he says so you have no problem attributing a child and a wife to God. But you have a problem attributing it to yourselves. And then they were like, oh God. So then they all got together, right? They went and they started to talk to you.

00:35:00--> 00:35:33

Trying to figure out what to do. So patriarch says to have a bucket of back to learning. He says what about that woman who was slandered in the Quran? Right. Tell me about how the attitude if he wanted to really get him stirred up the slander of ice all the time. Tell me about the wife of the Prophet Sunnah. And he said, who committed adultery and alkaline he said, she was accused, and Allah subhana wa tada absolved, just like he absolved the woman in your book, our mother money it has set up. They're both in the same boat, except one of them had a child and the other one did it.

00:35:35--> 00:36:02

He wasn't insulting medyo but he was telling me somehow Look what you're accusing us of right? You're saying Oh, she was accused that must music committed sin and well, she didn't have a child, Madame it and somehow the child but we know she didn't commit Zina either. Right. So then they huddled back again, okay. So he says, the patriarch tells his guys, he says give him 10,000 dinars of gold, send him back to Iraq and tell him never to come back.

00:36:03--> 00:36:44

Please don't come back. gave him the gold he goes back into Iraq carrying his goal. Right. So how to look. The reason why I mentioned this story. Islam is what made us progress. Islam was what made us benefit societies noted Dena Zandi, Rahim whole, lots of Allah was the one who mastered the you know, mastered building hospitals and those types of things for the world. Right, we have contributed as Muslims because of what Islam did for us and turned us into men and women have, you know, that belong to a great tradition, we have been able to do so much for the world for the sake of Allah Subhana tada seeking a higher purpose. It's whenever we don't allow Islam to come into our

00:36:44--> 00:37:20

lives, and we turn it into a bunch of superficial rituals, right? Islam has literally become reduced to clothes and a few rituals that you do here that not a purpose, not a purpose. Right? Once we reduce it to that, that's whenever we find ourselves falling backwards. So we have our role models, we ask the loss of habits either to make us amongst those who follow the example of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who follow the example of the companions and who seek only the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala and through that are benefits of their society. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us amongst those who are who accompany the Prophet's life rather than the highest

00:37:20--> 00:37:24

level of Jonathan for those who love them. I mean, does that mean la Fado

00:37:25--> 00:37:32

saved shapes his branch in a way that it becomes an idol. So he starts worshiping not so sorry, this is gonna be my God.

00:37:33--> 00:37:37

Then he started laughing again. I said, So what happened? He said that I got hungry.

00:37:39--> 00:38:07

So I ate my God. This is how he was reflecting on how silly he was in the days of janelia. Right? How silly he was in the days of Dahlia, why was he crying? Because Allah will follow the law. And when that big strong man did that, you know, follow through with the practice of janelia where Unfortunately, they used to bury their young daughters alive. And he was remembering the day that he did the same thing. And he never forgave himself for that. So he would start to cry. Here's the thing.

00:38:08--> 00:38:53

How did that ruthless man How did that men who had no future who was going to die a druggie with absolutely no hope? How did he become a hot tub and Faruk allottee euphoric Cobain unhappy well belted? The one that the one who who distinguishes between truth and falsehood, the one who the prophets lie Selim says no canon, IBM and baggy lokhandwala. There has to be a prophet after me, it would have been the one who was so ruthless, he could have done that to his own daughter would now cry at night, crying not not a few tears, not crocodile tears. No, he would cry at night. So much so and he would say, I'm afraid that the camel and the rock that has been overburdened will testify

00:38:53--> 00:39:28

against me on the Day of Judgment. He was so worried about his lie about his about his flock. Now this was the same man who was essentially heartless before Islam, right? He could do anything, nothing was gonna soften him, nothing was gonna get to him when the famine hit. I'm going to Amanda, the year of ashes 33 years after Hitler 36 years after Hitler struck the oma and people were dying by the 10s. And they didn't have any food, the halifa of the Muslims honored to follow the law of Thailand who said I'm not gonna eat any meat. And I'm not going to eat any food until the rest of this oma eats food.

00:39:29--> 00:40:00

Right. And he saw even his son carrying a piece of watermelon. And he went chasing after his son. And he refused to let him eat a piece of watermelon because everyone else has seen before us. And as a dad says that we were afraid that if the year of famine would have come if you read the biography of America for probably a long time, I know his physical description. He's described with having two different colors and some narrations he's white and some narrations he's yellow. Right. And it was because of the famine, the lack of

00:40:00--> 00:40:37

Nutrition, he actually changed colors all the time who said that said we knew that he was going to die. There was no way this man was going to live. But look how compassionate he became, somehow for his people, and he used to say kayfabe. And he said, no lie, whatever you'll see when he might have, you know, how can I How can I call myself a shepherd of this flock when I am not struck with what they are struck with? No, I'm not gonna eat anything. compassion, compassion for the animals, compassion for the human beings, justice, the same man that was a lot of that used to punish people that used to torture people. This man now became one of the most just human beings in history and a

00:40:37--> 00:41:19

standard for justice, even to the United Nations. Right, there's a statement from America. Fabiola. How can you enslave a man that was born free? That's from Alma that's in the United Nations Charter today. Michael Hart when he wrote his book, The 100 most influential men in the world, US will be allowed to comes right after Abacus. And the prophet SAW the law it was similar to them, they put him at number 54 or 52, somewhere in the 50s. Right. But that's an outstanding statement. What would he have been without Islam? What would have been without his stuff? He would have been powerful in his time. But he would have died a drunk with absolutely no future. Right. But he became a man of

00:41:19--> 00:41:37

justice on the low on who was so harsh on women, before Islam became one of the standards of women's rights. You know, and I know that this is a very touchy issue. I don't like to get into controversial issues too much. But all not all the a lot of time who was appointing female scholars to the Shura, she felt that

00:41:38--> 00:42:07

she was in charge of overseeing all of the fifth of transactions in the oma almost all the time. I knew when he was standing in the masjid. And he said that, you know, we're gonna go ahead and put a limit on the monitor on the diary, because people are getting ridiculous. Imagine what ridiculous was back then what it is now. So Pamela, so we're gonna limit it now. Right? We're going to we're gonna put, and one of the women stands up and says, No, no, no, you can't do that along the messenger slice and have did not do that. With the alarm. You sat down. He said, The woman is right and almost wrong.

00:42:08--> 00:42:31

Not talking. I'm not gonna do this anymore. I'll let all the low on who used to be a female slave until he would get tired. He reflected on that. So he would get tired. Right? There was once a man who wanted to complain about his wife. Right? So he said, I'm gonna go complain to own a pop up about you when he was the halifa. Right? I'm gonna go tell Ahmed, he's gonna put you in your place. He goes to the house of Oman. And what is he here? He hears almost wife yelling at him.

00:42:33--> 00:42:57

He's like, wow, alright, maybe this wasn't a good idea. So he's walking away from the house and all the law and opens his door. He says, What did you want? And he said, Never mind. I was coming for something. But I saw that you had the same problem I'm having. So he said, What are you talking about? He said, You know, my wife was giving me a hard time. So I was coming to complain to you. But I see that your wife is giving you a hard time too. He sets up how to love with all that they put up with us.

00:42:58--> 00:43:38

Then we can let them sometimes we can let them sometimes let their emotions out. It's okay. That's the same human being what happened to him. La Sol, La Sol de la usnm. Saw good traits and even our real thought and he made your art for him. And the most unjust man became the most just men. Right? The man who lacked compassion became one of the most compassionate people ever known to mankind. Subhana Allah, this is an amazing thing. And now what are we talking about? Let's go back to the mejlis we were talking about the city we were talking about right Amato hanging out with Bharat and kebab began and hubub were tortured and now they're honored. Now they're wearing good clothes. Now

00:43:38--> 00:43:53

they're from the scholars of the oma. Now this will have are looking up to them. This is the golden age of Islam. Now under Roman rule, hubbub. Islam is essentially spreading throughout the world at this point, and beyond cabella from the two most honored men and all women

00:43:55--> 00:44:06

who spent a few years you know, in the early years of Islam, opposing it with all of his strength and all of his heart and all of his mind was now the reason for it spread.

00:44:07--> 00:44:40

times can change. And why is this so significant when we're looking at the Sahaba, because for every single Companion of the Prophet sallallahu, it was some male or female, rich or poor, black or white, whatever it is, we can find the narrative we can find something that represents a little bit about ourselves, we can find a story that relates, we can find it in the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam, we can find it in the companions, we can always find something that relates to us. And essentially what that means is that we never have an excuse.

00:44:41--> 00:44:59

We never have an excuse. If Allah Subhana Allah would have made all of the Sahaba men and women that were righteous before Islam and big belong to a certain social class, right and never have to go through trials and never have to suffer with their families. You know what? We would probably be in trouble. We have an excuse.

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

Right, but because we look at them, we don't have an excuse. Because look what they became. Why? Because they allowed Islam to transform them. They allowed a loss of Hannah to Allah to enter into their hearts once Allah subhanaw taala conquers the hearts. So upon Allah, there is no stopping your potential at that point. You can go so So, so far, and this is what we see with the Sahaba. They had a certain confidence, they had a love for their Deen, they had that was not out of the arrogance on top of the law and who was the type of person, you trashed his lineage, you talk about his lineage, you're gonna be in trouble. Right? You try to take away from the dignity of honor for totally alone,

00:45:44--> 00:46:22

you might get punched in the face, when he enters into Jerusalem, the same human being the same person who was that arrogant, who was the flagbearer of Christ, when he enters into the courts, and they have a grand reception for him set up for him, right? They've got their spheres, you know, making a shadow, they've got the red carpet out for him. Right? The patriarch is waiting for him. The Emperor of Rome is waiting from delegates from all over the world are waiting to give him the key to to Jerusalem, they have some of the Sahaba sitting there dressed in an honorable Wait, right there waiting to greet him and be allowed to I mean, how does he come in? He got a servant with him.

00:46:23--> 00:47:00

So he tells the servant, look at the justice, he tells us serve and he says, look, you know, we have one, we have one horse. You write it half the way and I write it half the way. is Pamela serve it right, you write it halfway. All right, it halfway. He said, Okay, so whenever they started coming close to Jerusalem, honor the Lord who fell into a mud puddle. And he was already wearing clothes that has 17 stitches in them. Right? And so it's already looking really, really, really bad. And then the sermon says, you know, you want to switch spaces. Now we're getting close to the footsy. So it's no a deal's a deal. You stay on there. As they're approaching hell quotes. Everyone's waiting

00:47:00--> 00:47:38

for the honorable, honorable hubub, who was mentioned in their Bible, right? There are various sources about the Jews and the Christians saying there were references to the man who would take the key to Jerusalem in the Bible, about this, you know, unique qualities of armor, Ababa, the lohana. They see him coming in, and he's running with the horse. And he's got the clothes with the stitches and things of that sort. He's got the mud all over him. And he's running towards and this is the man who's coming to take the key for Jerusalem. One of the biggest conquests in history which there was no bloodshed, by the way, right. And about a beta Joe Ross comes to Oman.

00:47:39--> 00:47:41

And Barbados says to homeless a topknot that

00:47:43--> 00:47:54

was an arrogant man above or below the line who lived a very simple life also, but he says to him, and also top, you know, you're making us look bad. Why did you do that? Couldn't you have worn something else? Why don't you do that? Right?

00:47:55--> 00:48:37

And what is unreal supposedly allow him to do, he pushes a Barbie. Then he says, I wish I would have heard that from anyone. But you know, no, Coleman has done a lot of Islam, or nF delaine. And there is certainly lady as an Allah, we are people who have lost patata honor through our faith, if we seek that honor, through any other means we will be humiliated. We were not humiliated. Whenever we were good Muslims in our history. Why? Because whenever we live Islam in our lives, we benefit society. Society wanted to remember the Allahu anhu in Jerusalem because they knew he was adjustment. Society knew what Muslims had to contribute. And for some reason, even we as Muslims, we

00:48:37--> 00:49:18

think that you know, sometimes subconsciously, everything that's happening in the Muslim world today, the reason why Muslims are backwards, is because of their Islam. Right? It's because of the shediac. Right? It's because they they're not willing to let go of the Quran and Sunnah. That's why they're backwards. But you know what, through the end of the semester, through this Dean, Allah Subhana, WA, tada transforms one of the most backward societies and turned them into a gold standard through Islam. It was through Islam, they became dignified. It was through the accountability they feel towards their Creator and to society. They became dignified. And you know what? The whole world

00:49:18--> 00:49:54

is in a great intellectual depth, you know that to Islam. Everyone knows that. And obviously you as university students, you studied law, you're studying even rushed, right? You study math, you're studying, you're studying any subject Muslims contributed towards the had it not been for Islam? Do you really think those societies would have achieved what they achieved? Absolutely not. Islam is what causes them to be dignified. Islam is what caused them to progress. And that's how we become role models. Whenever we see guys that through Allah Subhana Allah, even if we have as dark of a past as I'm gonna call thought, even if everything is against us, if the odds are against us like

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

banana and kebab, Allah subhanaw taala will allow us to be honored. I'll leave you with one story. It's

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

Not the story of a Sahabi I got the five minutes I'm probably gonna go a little bit more. So I promise I won't go too much more inshallah time. But, you know, it's not a story of us a hobby, but it shows you where we work. It shows you at what level we work and the dignity that we had. You know, nowadays we're apologetic about our deeds. We try to run away from our game. We feel like we have something to apologize for it. It's like the first thing whenever you meet someone is like, please don't think that I'm violent. Please don't think that we oppress our movement.

00:50:29--> 00:51:07

We're okay. We're okay. We're acceptable. love us, please. You know, it's like, and then of course, you got the other extreme, which is crazy. Like fanatical. I'm not talking about that. I'm saying the attitude that we should be we should shy away from our Deen. But people are scared of what the deen can do. Right? People are scared of people who actually you know, those who hate Islam are scared of allowing Islam to come to us. Right? I'm not talking about her dude. And I'm not even talking about that. I'm not talking about that all i'm talking about. People are scared if Muslims actually start to hold on to their Deen, you know, they had an IDF soldier. I remember just two

00:51:07--> 00:51:43

years ago, it was published in the haircuts and he said the day we will fear the Muslims is whenever they start going to their mosques for the legit prayer. That's the day we'll be scared of the Muslims. So now right now we're not worried about them. You know, when they start praying fudger Ironically, the same thing so a lot of Deen Rahim Allah Allah said, all those years ago, you know, almost 1000 years ago, that whenever we are praying for Yama theme, then we can go right not to harm anyone not to kill any innocent people not to be terrorists, but to show there is of Islam. And I want you to I want you to think about this. I'm going to tell you one story. A while back it adopted

00:51:43--> 00:51:56

learning a whole lot to Allah was a great scholar, and Iraq, one of the focal hub right off one of the jurists of unsinkable buckler about Kalani, Allah was invited in the year 1001

00:51:57--> 00:52:32

to visit the patriarch of Rome, right. Now imagine, you know, we're getting invitations nowadays, at least in the United States, whenever Muslim leaders get invited. Like everything goes out the window, like whenever the pope visited the United States, it was like they gave him they gave him calligraphy, they started kissing his hand, everything like I was like, Come on go. You know, I went back and about Kalani wasn't having all of that. Right. But they wanted to invite him to sort of put the Muslims down. So they invited the greatest scholar for the Muslims. He comes into there, he walks there. That's how a lot whenever he gets there, he notices something. You know, they

00:52:32--> 00:52:53

understood when they were talking about the Muslims visiting, they knew that the Muslims had certain things they would observe. So they said, Look, when he walks in here, he's not gonna bow to the Emperor, everybody else is, that's gonna look really bad for us. Right? Because they would always have the Emperor sit high on the high chair, right? So he's, he's not gonna balance the Emperor. Right. So what did they do? They actually made like a small art.

00:52:55--> 00:52:57

So that whenever you enter the room, you have to answer like this.

00:52:59--> 00:52:59

Alright.

00:53:01--> 00:53:03

Well, back in the Dr. Lan, he figured it out.

00:53:04--> 00:53:07

He walked up there, and he saw what they did. So he went like this.

00:53:12--> 00:53:33

Seriously, 1001 Look at this. Look at the honor of it's not right. I'm not doing I'm not bowing to no human being. Right? He walks in there. He enters that way. So then they start having a conversation. And they purposely planned that the patriarch would not enter until after he came, right. So whenever the patriarch entered,

00:53:34--> 00:53:54

they had another high tear for him. And they had a small chair for chef McCullough Bakula next to him. Right. And whenever he came in, everybody started to surround him kisses hands, they started to light candles around him, they started to spray the sense and all that type of stuff. And they pulled out their scrolls and everyone was walking with it. Like all hell, right? Oh, bucket is sitting there looking at it like okay.

00:53:55--> 00:53:57

So whenever he comes

00:53:58--> 00:54:05

back in about Kalani, he doesn't sit down. He stands next to him. And he says, so how are the wife and kids doing?

00:54:06--> 00:54:08

And then everybody goes, Oh,

00:54:09--> 00:54:50

he didn't just go there. You really just say that the wife and kids? Right? Don't you know that? You know, we as men of God, we as monks, we don't get married. Right? How dare you say that you're being so insulting. So set up about going about your life and he goes to panela. He says, so you have no problem attributing a child and a wife to God. But you have a problem, attributing it to yourselves. And then they were like, Oh, God. So then they all got together. Right? They went and they started to talk, you know, somehow they're trying to figure out what to do. So the patriarch says to have a bucket about the learning. He says what about that woman who was slandered in the Quran? Right. Tell

00:54:50--> 00:54:59

me about how the attitude if you wanted to really get them stirred up the slander of ice all the time. Tell me about the wife of the Prophet slice. He said who committed adultery.

00:55:00--> 00:55:14

Abu Bakr, Kalani, he said she was accused. And Allah subhanho wa Taala absolved, just like he absolved the woman in your book. Our mother money money has set up. They're both in the same boat except one of them had a child and the other one did it.

00:55:15--> 00:55:42

He wasn't insulting medyo but he was telling me somehow liquid you're accusing us of right? You're saying Oh, she was accused that must music committed sin and well, she didn't have a child Money, money and somehow a child but we know she didn't commit Zina either. Right. So then they huddled back again, okay. So he says, the patriarch tells his guys, he says give him 10,000 dinars of gold. Send him back to Iraq and tell him never to come back.

00:55:43--> 00:56:25

Please don't come back. gave him the gold he goes back into Iraq carrying his gold. Right. So how to look. The reason why I mentioned this story. Islam is what made us progress. Islam is what made us benefit societies noted Dina Zandi Rahim Whoa, lots of Allah was the one who mastered the you know, mastered building hospitals and those types of things for the world. Right, we have contributed as Muslims because of what Islam did for us and turned us into men and women have you know, that belong to a great tradition, we have been able to do so much for the world for the sake of Allah Subhana tada seeking a higher purpose. It's whenever we don't allow Islam to come into our lives, and we

00:56:25--> 00:57:01

turn it into a bunch of superficial rituals. Right? Islam has literally become reduced to clothes and a few rituals that you do here that not a purpose, not a purpose. Right? Once we reduce it to that, that's whenever we find ourselves falling backwards. So we have our role models, we ask the loss of habits either to make us amongst those who follow the example of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who follow the example of the companions and who seek only the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala and through that are benefits of their society and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us amongst those who are who accompany the prophets like Selim in the highest level of Jonathan

00:57:01--> 00:57:04

for those who love them. I mean, does that mean lol feta
