as well as seminary ministry autonomously Bismillahirrahmanirrahim hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen whatever we want in our blood, I mean when people to dealing with pain Allahumma salli wa sallam abiotic Arabic Allah Sudha Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He he was so happy with Salam to see him and Kathira ciabatta Allah tonight we continue in the story of Salman Alfetta. See Salman Islam are the Allahu taala. And the incredible companion and his journey and this part of the journey is the part that usually gets left out in the story of sama. Meaning what? Typically, if you read the story of Sandman Farsi, or the Allahu taala, and it sort of stops when he needs the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa salam and then that's it. That's the end of the story. But then you're left to wonder, Well, what happened after he became Muslim? What happened after 100? What happens with his life with the companions? What was his personality? Like? What was his interaction like with the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? What happens later on in history? Does he take part in the battles and this part of his life is beautiful and deep? And I'd say underrated in the books even in the classical books. By the way when you read the story of submodel the Allahu Taala and hope you don't get enough of this part of his story but I wanted to start with something
that really is one of the most moving chapters of the book of alpha divided no claim Rahim Allah Tala. Now of course a few years ago shakey Essen and I when we did the last tonight reflections, we reflected on the fella at the useful things of any man that will claim Rahim Allah to Anna. And then this year we did YBNL Josie Rahim Allah seydel hotter, but for what are the reflections of an acclaimed Rahim Allah, and he has a chapter. It's about page 60. The chapter is actually called sentiment and fantasy. It's a meditation on Sandman and fantasy, it'll be a lot of data.
And I absolutely love this. And it is so rich in Arabic, but I don't want to read the whole thing. But I kind of do want to read the whole thing. So I'm just going to read a couple of portions in sha Allah at the beginning in the end of this chapter in sha Allah to Allah in in Arabic, and then I'll translate it, he said Philip Meraki that Rico either Abu Talib hurry confy loot Jatin Haluk what Salman Juana sahalie Salam, well Walid Mahira Yakumo coma who fifth t what so Haman could Kadima be coffee at a room when Joshi Adil Habesha yaku Lula bake Allah Humala bake wellbeloved en una de la sala to hydro Mina Nome Wabo Gen. Fee rock Datil Maha Maha Allah. He said, Rahim Allah to Allah,
Philip Markita to re which basically means when I mean if you want to translate what he's actually saying, once the dust settled when the call of the Prophet slice and I'm came, and the dust settled, Allah subhanaw taala brought this call from the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam either apple pie lib a hurry country legit ill Haluk suddenly we find that Ebola the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam drowns in the sea of destruction. Why? Because he turned away from the call of the Prophet slicin. Despite his assisting the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in protecting him he does not embrace the message of the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam man Allah had a ceramah and
there you find Salam o the Allah and host safe on the coast. So I will call it the uncle of the prophets why some drowns Salam o the Allahu Taala and who is safe on the coast? Well will either be Mahira you have to do more coal mahoe for tea, and I'll worry the bill Mahira who was the famous Arab in the in Quraysh, someone who was known for his intelligence, someone who was known for his wealth, he precedes his people in destruction, and leading them astray. He was always looked at the person who was the progress of Mecca. He was the one that would spend his money that would advance Mecca forward and here he advances Mecca towards destruction. Walsall Haven at the Kadima the coffee
letter room, and there comes to Hey, from the caravan of the Romans, so submodel the Allahu Anhu somehow from Persia safe on the coast, while the uncle of the prophets lie some drums, and when he did minimal hero he used to take the Meccans forward and represented progress and Maccha and wealth and prominence. Suddenly he is leading the people towards destruction. And so Hey bro, the Allahu Anhu coming from the heart of the Roman Empire in their caravan, ready to embrace the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says all the way what an Joshi out of the habit say a coup let bake Allah Who mela bake and he said the entire time there you have no Joshi and Abyssinia CRYING OUT
HERE I COME Oh ALLAH. Here I come while beloved united the and Bilal the Abyssinia calling out a Salah to Jairo Mina known as Salah to Hiram in unknown pray
is better than sleep. Prayer is better than sleep. Well I will Jahan fee rock that in Mahara and Abuja Hill, who was, of course, known as the father of wisdom, becomes the father of ignorance, and is asleep amongst the disbelieving group. So it's a powerful contrast that he's giving basically to say, what excuse do you have? what excuse do you have to say that you should not be amongst the Forerunners amongst those who rushed towards guidance when you hear this journey of surmount unfairness, get all the allowance out? And look at the way that these journeys match because the assumption when it comes to religious values and religious guidance is what I just do what my
parents taught me to do. Right? And everyone kind of just goes with that. But look, what if no claim Rahim Allah is saying and then towards the end of the chapter, he says, Yeah, Mohammed, enter to redo our toilet when I can only do Selma.
Oh, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, you wanted Abu Talib, but we wanted Salman meaning Allah Subhana Allah to Allah guides whom He wills. You want to double Padam, but we wanted to sell them an apple toilet either so Illa NS me Hey, Paula Abdul Manaf. Well, either and Tessa after horrible.
When Obatala would be asked what his name was, he would say I'm from abdomen F. And when he took pride, he took pride in his forefathers fathers. Were either zoo Kira, tell me why No, I delivered. And if you asked about money, then he would do it. All the Mexicans would do. They would count their camels. They would tell you how much they own. was Santa Ana either. So ILA and this mihika Abdullah. If you ask Salman, what's your name, he would say Abdullah, the servant of Allah, ye unnecessarily he call him is now. And if you ask them, what's your lineage? He would say I'm the son of Islam. Why Malli he called a fuck. And if you ask Salman, what is your wealth, he would say my
wealth is actually my poverty. What unhandled he called Al masjid. And if you asked him about his, his, his coffin, his 100 If you asked him about his coffin, he would say it's my message. And if you asked Salman, well, the Allahu Anhu one QSP if you ask them about what he has earned, he would say a sub I've earned patience. While only bassy he called a tackle our toddler and if you asked him about his garments, he would say it is piety and humility. When we started the he called us up, and if you asked him about his bed at night, he would say that my rest at night is in being awake with Allah Subhana Allah one fuckery he called a Salma numina and if you ask them what gives you something to
boast about or what is it that you boast about he would say when the Prophet slice and I'm said Salman is one of us Salomon Lumina, one custody he thought you really do and Elijah, and if you ask them about what your objective is in life, what do you want from life? He would say, I want Allah Subhan Allah to add a space. I want Allah's pleasure. While I'm sad he call it either Jana and if you asked him where he was going, he would say I'm going to Jana. One deline. He Fatale, Kala Imam will help you handle him. If you ask them about who guides you on this path, he would say, the Imam of all of Allah's creation, and the guide of all leaders, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, as
you can see, translation does not work here. I tried my best, but it's, it's a chapter and a fella. It's one of the first chapters in fact, page 60 where they'll claim Rahim Allah just reflects on the amazing story of Sudan and Pharisees will be alone. So before we go any further
what's the point here? what excuse do you have? what excuse do you have to not overcome your cultural restriction to not overcome your social circle? It's not overcome the norms that have been placed around you to not overcome the standards that have been set for you. what excuse do you have if cinnamyl The Allahu Anhu found himself with the prophets I said, I'm in the trenches in Medina. Being told Solomon who Mina al Bateson, man is one of us, and he is from my family. And he came from Persia, where he was in the house of Kufa, the house of disbelief, literally the house of kufr. In the center of the Persian Empire, where we left off, in part one was this incident of salon and the
hunt, duck semanal, the Allahu Anhu and the trench, where it is his suggestion that the prophets lie, some accepts, and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Companions start to build away this trench. And Salam will the Allahu Taala and who narrates in an authentic hadith his experience with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the trench. Salman did not witness better or hurt. Salman is now in his first battle and he's right next to the prophets lie Selim and the prophets lie some dug the equivalent of 10 men by himself, also lost my son did not
Say good ideas sell man. Now all of you do your thing, the profit slice and I'm Doug more than anyone else, Doug and he starved more than anyone else starved similar to how when the messenger SallAllahu sallam said, you know how come help your brother. Once a man will be alone and who needed the palm trees he himself dug all 300 hole or he himself planted all 300 trees. Here. The description of the prophets lie some as he's covered in mud. He has stones tied to his stomach. He eats less than everyone else. He does more than everyone else. sallallahu alayhi wa salam and Suriname only Allah and who said I'm digging, and next to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And I started to struggle with this huge stone that I couldn't get past with my axe.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says to Salman Yeah, Salman, give me the x.
So Salman are the Allahu Anhu says I handed to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And also lastly Salam strikes that stone
and he recites temat Calima to rob beaker SIP Anwar Adeline la mesa de la LA County Mati Oahu SMU and
the word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and injustice. None can change his words and he has the All Hearing and the All Knowing from Surah Nisa.
So not only Allah on who said that when he struck the stone, a light appeared from it.
And he said the messenger SallAllahu Sallam struck again, and he recited the same as talking about Kadima to rob mica said Panwar Adnan la MOBA de la Kenyatta, he was a murine and he said another light came out of it. And the prophets I said I'm struck it a third time, and it completely came apart, and it was all light coming out of it. And he recited the is sallallahu alayhi wa salam. So he said, I said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam BNB anto OMYA Rasul Allah, may my father and my mother be sacrifice for you oh messenger of Allah Maha the lira a to what is it that I am seeing this light that is coming from the stone as you strike? The prophets lie Selim is surprised
that Salman sees it. He says our cadre to Dalek as a man you mean you see it too? Oh Selma. Why? Because the prophets lie some at times saw things that the companions did not see. And so when Allah subhanaw taala decided to unlock some of what the Prophet slicin was seeing to the Companions around. That was a representation of the status of that companion. Right if you watched Angel season two, sometimes the prophets lie some could be sitting with two companions, only one of them sees Gibreel at his Salaam and not the other. That's a sign of the status of that Sahabi alongside the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So the prophets like some says yes, and man you see it as well. So normal the Allahu Anhu says, A will let the Bertha will help. Yes, I swear by the one who sent you in truth. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said at the first strike, keep in mind here, they're in a trench trying to ward off a genocide.
Right, this is an attempted
wiping out of the Muslims once and for all.
And this is what Allah shows the prophets lie Selim. He says the first time I saw it, oh Salmaan, Ruthie, it Lima that you know Kisara on a hella the palaces of Kisara the emperor of Persia, were raised up in front of me, and everything around that meaning I saw the light of Islam reaching Persia. So the prophets lie Selim is with the companions and they're afraid that they're not going to exist in a few days, right? I mean, from a physical perspective that this is the end of Islam. That's what the the intentions are of the Mexicans and the prophets lie Selim is saying, with the first strike, Allah showed me
the palaces of Kisara Madonnina Kisara, and everything that is around it. Well, my dad in okra Ito have Urania and the prophets lie, some said, and there were many other things that I saw with my eyes. And the second time, Allah subhanaw taala showed me the palaces of Eisah Huracan, and everything that is around the Emperor of Rome, and what is around him. And the third time Allah showed me the palaces of habita. And Yemen, Abyssinia and Yemen, Islam reaching Yemen, as well. And in one narration, the prophets lie some said Yemen and a sham. So the point is that the Prophet slice and I'm basically from that ditch that they're constructing is seeing the light of Islam
reaching the entire known world at the time.
Right. So not only are we not going to be wiped out Allah is sending the prophets lie some the message and the Companions a message that you will come out of this dark trench and the light of Islam
will spread to the entire world the Sahaba that heard the Prophet slice and um say that they said to the Prophet slice Salam ya rasool Allah make dua that Allah make us amongst those that spread Islam to these places. And the prophets I said made their app for that group of companions. So Salmaan will be Allah Allah who is with the Prophets lie Selim, where did Sandman come from Persia?
Right, the palace of Persia or a palace in Persia. And he's now in a trench with the Prophets lie some of them. At the suggestion of Sandman, the trench that they constructed. And the prophets lie Selim sees the most prized city of that empire with his eyes, and Salmaan sees that light and the prophets lies and makes your art that Salam or the Allahu Anhu would be amongst those upon whose hands that light would spread Subhan Allah that is how you start this particular instance. This is the first Mashhad the first time Sandman will be Allah and who witnesses one of these incidents alongside the messenger sallallahu alayhi. Wa sunnah. So Monaldi Allah Tada. And, of course goes on
after this incident because it's now that he's really integrated into society. He's integrated into the Sahaba and Sonali Allah and who gains an identity and his identity is beautiful. He's Salmaan, eternal Islam. He Salman, the son of Islam, Sandman YBNL. Islam. I'm not from the Mohabbatein technically, I'm not from the Onsala not from Mecca. I'm not from Medina. And when he's asked who his father is, he says Islam, he has no tribal claim. But he is elevated amongst the Companions because of his struggle and because of his knowledge. And he had this line of poetry that he used to say, he said ebill Islam la Lisa, who is after her Rubio Tyson, oh, Tamimi said my father is Islam.
I have no other father but Islam once they start to boast about peace, and to me when they start to boast about their tribal superiority. I simply say I am from Islam, and unhappy with that. Salon from Islam. Where are you from? Jana. That's what I want. That's the easiest way for him to respond. And that's something that he sincerely means and that's what Rahim Allah was praising about Salman and Pharisees all the Allahu Taala animal that Salman basically gives you no excuse in your own journey to truth because he did everything that he possibly could and he faced every difficulty that you possibly could face in attaining that truth and being with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam. The prophets lie some of the Allah Tala and who says that the prophets lie Selim was sitting with the Sahaba when Sudha Jumeirah was revealed to him.
And when Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Well, I don't want him in home lemme yell help will be him.
Others amongst them who have not yet joined them, others amongst them who have not yet joined them, meaning the Muslims who have not yet joined them, the descendants who are to come
that one of the Sahaba asked the prophets lie some yellow Sula, who is this about and the prophets lie some was silent. And he said again Yatta salah, who is this about and the prophets lie, some was silent. And then he asked the third time, and he said the prophets lie some put his hands on the shoulder of Solomon and father Cetyl, the Allahu Taala and who and he said it is Salman and his descendants.
And he said, even if Eman was in the stars, a man from amongst these people from amongst these descendants would reach up to attainment would reach up to attain it. Meaning what that Salam o the Allahu Anhu and his descendants who are far away they don't share anything in common with us in terms of deen or culture or language even, but they will find faith and they will be the ones who will become the sustainers and become the stewards of this faith. In one narration we're in titolo yesterday will Kamen Rider come when Allah says if you turn away Allah will replace you with someone else. The prophets lies to them pointed to tsunami or the law or anyone said this is a man and his
descendants meaning this is not a religion that depends upon the Arabs. This is not a religion that depends upon any particular culture. This is not a religion that depends on an empire. This is not a religion that belongs to a power class and if that power class politically crumbles, the religion dies as well. This is a religion, that Allah subhanaw taala will spread through the hearts of those who seek guidance and will stop at nothing to get it. And half of them had had Rahim Allah to Allah he comments on this narration with the novel
The Allahu Taala animal and he he says Subhanallah that the prophets lie some did not discredit Salam or the Allahu anhu, with his own Islam and with the Islam of the Persians with the Prophets lie some was talking about were non Arabs, non Arabs, who would go on to become the bulk of the scholars of this religion, whether you talk about the the Malala, or you talk about the collectors of Hadith, or many of the famous scholars, right, they were not Arabs, and that's part of the beauty of Islam is that it immediately became it became universal.
In the very next generation of the tambourine. Many of the scholars that took it forward and became the chief Mufti of their land, we're not Arabs anymore. And he, he referred to him Mr. Hanifa Rahim Allah Who of course, he Manuel Antifa was a Persian as well, the imam who reached the stars. Why? Because the prophets like some said, the descendants of these people have phenomenal the Allahu Allah and who would not stop even if they had to go up to the skies and reach into the stars to find this Dean, they would do so. So this was not about the Persians. This is not about a particular group of people. This was about sincere people who would strive for this religion and who would find
it no matter what and who would do everything that they possibly could in order to attain it. So what happens hustle buslee Rahim Allah Mujahid Rahim Allah Azza wa Jubeir, Abu Hanifa Imam Buhari, remember Timothy, All of these people who are not Arabs, but who became the greatest scholars, and the descendants of this religion and all of that is the sadaqa jariya of cinema, the Allahu taala. And all of that is the continuous charity of cinema, or the Allahu taala. And so what's the man's sort of place amongst the companions? Number one, when the prophets like Sam said Salman Mina, Al Bayt, so nuns, one of us is from my household. It wasn't just like a nice thing to say at the
The prophets I seldom kept salon close to him, close to him, to our salon or the Allahu taala. And who would be with him in his home frequently. Not all of the companions had access to the home of the prophets lie Selim on a regular basis anomaly Allahu Anhu was one of those in a theater mentions. There's a narration from actually Allah and always entering into the house with the prophets I saw them and sitting with the Prophets lie Selim, in his alone time. So he's in the inner circle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and one of the gems of that, of course, is that he went from keeping the fire of the Medusa in his fire in his father's home, to now being in the
household of the Prophet salallahu it who was selling while Quran was being revealed to the Prophet Seisen. Sandman was there, when Sua, when Surahs were revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as we said, above what I don't know the Allahu Taala and who referred to him as I will kita being the father of the Bible, and the father of the Quran in the sense that he possessed a rare scholarship of the three major religions. Well, the four major religions, but the three major scriptures at the time, he possessed a rare scholarship and that he was a scholar of Zoroastrianism. He was a scholar of Judaism, a scholar of Christianity, and now a scholar of Islam. By the testimony
of multiple companions, he immediately became a scholar amongst the Muslims as well. He knew how to speak all of the languages of the books, and he knew all of the signs of the coming of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he translated for the prophets lie some of the Quran into Persian
and he's the first person has he mama, no way to him, Allah says to do so. Now what is his personality like? And this is actually really important to sort of get an idea of him I mean, this man that's coming to live amongst the Sahaba in this regard. Salman, who knows all of this stuff
would barely open his mouth.
You imagine that like you possess all this knowledge, and Salon will be Allah on whose reputation is what. Silence.
He was a very quiet man.
And you know the Allahu Taala and who referred to him as the look man of the ummah. He's the look man and Hakeem of this ummah, why? Because look, man, Al Hakim barely spoke. But when he spoke, it was wisdom. And half of wisdom is practicing silence. So when you say something, that means something, if you talk all the time, then people know that you're just gonna keep running your mouth, your your words possess very little meaning. Right? So as the guy who's talking a lot right now, but wisdom is in practicing silence, and then being very intentional about what you say very thoughtful about what you say not always running your mouth. So Namo the Allahu Anhu barely would
open his mouth. And every time he spoke, everybody turned to him.
You know, think about an extremely wise person.
As soon as they start to speak, everyone's like, Whoa, he's talking. She's talking now let's pay attention. That was Sandman or the Allahu taala, an extremely long periods of silence, extremely wise and thoughtful words, when he eventually would open his mouth. And there is actually a narration that someone came to him and said to him, oh, sonny, give me advice. So he told him, not to catalogue don't talk.
So he said, Oh, sonny, give me advice. He said, Learn to tell them don't talk. And he said, Elson, he he said, Didn't I tell you stop talking? Like this is the advice you talk too much. Learn to practice silence. Because when your silence, you have more time to receive and to ponder and to be perceptive, less sins to corrupt the internal perception as well. When you talk all the time. You're blurting out, and you're blurting out sins, and you're thinking less and you're corrupting your test kiya? Because you're likely ascending when you talk too much. So San Manuel de la on whose advice was quiet, but Subhanallah the description of Sandman in this regard is that he was quiet, but you
knew he was thinking about something.
Okay, and this was one of the descriptions of the Prophet slice. I'm doubting when ficlet
You know, when you look at someone who's quiet, and they look like they're just kind of aloof and staring around. So not only Allahu Anhu was that person who you could look at when he was quiet, and you knew that there was some deep stuff going on in his head right now.
You don't even know what I'm talking about. Like if you see someone who you know, is in deep thought versus someone who's completely aloof. Right. Like you looked at tsunami, Allah and you're like, I wonder what's in that library right now. Because he was so perceptive on the Allahu Taala annual, and some of the scholars mentioned and not to cycle analyze the novel The Law, and nobody has been alone his whole life. He was alone in front of the fire. Right? I mean, he was literally caretaking for the fire for his entire childhood. And then he was alone as a monk. He's in the church. And he's going from church to church serving priests and priests, right learning the religion of Ibrahim Ali
Salam in the purest manifestation that exists at the time. And then he's alone in slavery, passed from owner to owner to owner to owner, he doesn't have a social circle, right? He travels the world alone. So so not only alone has spent his entire life I mean, realize again, when he got to Medina, by the time he got to Medina, he's already in his 50s. He's not a young man.
Right? He's not a youth, he's already had his whole life, where he's been alone. So man does not have best friends. Some man does not even have family. He doesn't have anyone around him. So he had to learn. I mean, he's living a life of being estranged, much of it, solitary confinement, much of it is being around people who are not like him. Right. So when he joins the Sahaba so not only alone, and who sort of maintains that same type of stature and posture, which is one of silence, perception worship deeply bad.
And he used to stand and he would pray at night. And subhanAllah we have the the narration, which is a very powerful narration because we already talked about some narrations that have to do with him.
But he has lived the profit slice somebody's heard the profit slice I'm recite what in the Johanna minima were either imaginary
that verily Hellfire is as promised for them all sorts of hedges. Verse 43. So the model the Allahu Anhu went quiet. And he, I mean, he actually was not seen for some days and he was very scared. He was in panic. So the prophets lie some asked about ceremonial the law and where did he go? He started to cry, which was not unusual for some animal the Allahu Taala Anna
and the prophets lie some asked for him. So they found some mama Lila on her days later and they brought him to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and the prophets of Allah Allah He was psyllium husk them so the man what happened? He said he also Allah, on Zillow turned the hill IO into Johanna and now we're into homage Marian, that fairly hellfire, this verse was revealed that verily Hellfire is promised for them are part of Hellfire is where they will go. And he said, For Allah The Benefactor will help a Kata Academy like I swear by the one who sent you the truth this tore my heart like what do I do that
for Anzahl Allahu Taala in the subpoena, field lead on and more human. So Allah subhanaw taala revealed that Verily the pious will be sitting with vast shade and springs comforting the heart of salaam will the Allah
and those who are like Salam o the Allahu taala. And with that Hellfire is promised for the wicked. It is not promised for the righteous, like cinnamon and Pharisee, about the Allahu taala. And now, an incident that happens with him as well. And this is probably the most famous incident with sentimental the alongside and who is who the profit slice some puts him with in the WHA ha and the pairing off of the unsought animal hygiene. So not only Allah and when he's freed from slavery, he's going to need a place to stay and he's going to get on his feet. And so man between the two groups of Mahajan Assad of the migrants and the unsought those that are receiving them, he falls into the
group of them Oh, hygiene, right. He made His law he migrated not from Mecca, but he migrated from Persia and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Paris him off with a Buddha or the Allahu taala. And
I will do that so we're going to talk about next week. All right, a Buddha Al Ansari, while the Allahu Taala and, and a Buddha is a scholar amongst the unsolved and this is from the wisdom of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he put a scholar in the house of a scholar. He puts he put an avid a worshiper in the house of a worshiper. So Sal Manuel the Allahu Anhu is a worshipper of Buddha as a worshipper of Buddha, that is quickly gaining prominence as a Mufti amongst the Companions, one of the closest to the Prophet, slice Allah, and someone who immediately stands out in terms of his knowledge. And so now the Allahu Anhu is going to go live with a Buddha or the
Allahu taala. And now, this is Subhanallah one of the most profound narrations because Salam o, the Allahu taala, and who has seen righteous people, and he has seen extremism, and he has seen corruption extremism here, not in the sense of violence, extremism, and photography, or Lulu 15 people that go too far with the religion, he's seen that practice in different manifestations, and he's seen corruption and facade, as well. So he's seen these different types of religious practice, right, so this is really going to be his exposure. His first exposure to a companion of the prophets lie Selim, who's noted for his religiosity. So nonyl, the Allah and who moves in.
That's pretty intimidating, right? Like you got to host the man in your house. So not only a lot of time and who moves in
and out with the data or the Allahu Taala and who was fasting
all the time, praying all the time, reading all the time, to the point that he's neglectful of his household. Okay.
So so normally Allah I know one day he asks this is in the very beginning, he sees only the RDA, and this is before the Ayat of hijab were revealed. So he sees on with the RDA in clothing, her home clothing, of course, modesty, but not with the full hijab, and he sees the patches and he sees her in a bad situation. And he says to a mother that
what is this?
Mahalo so she says, He doesn't attack that she says your brother or Buddha has no need for this world. He just doesn't care about dunya like this guy is focused on the afro. So she says it in a praise and appraising fashion, but at the same time, so not only Allah and recognizes the neglect of the household, and he doesn't like it.
So other than the Allah and what would he do? He was still a really good host, and that he would prepare the lunch, have the lunch serve to Selma, and he was eating because he was fasting. So a Buddha or the Allahu Anhu was fasting. And he brings the food to Salman Salman will the Allahu Taala and who says eat with me
with that, that says in the salt am I'm fasting so mammal, the Allah animal says a sum to alayka and Tatkal.
I swear by Allah that I'm taking an oath upon you, you will eat with me, the right of the guests on the host, you break your fast, it's a voluntary fast, sit down and eat with me. So he forces up with the RDA to break his fast. And then at nighttime aboda Are the Allahu Taala and who would immediately start with pm
like he wouldn't go be with his spouse and then come out at some point and start praying. He immediately extends up to pray at night. So Sandman will the Allah and who goes together does he's about to start praying and he says go to sleep.
You know, some guests you are right, like you come into my house and tell me when to eat and when to sleep and go to sleep. And I wonder that says well Solly said no, no go to sleep.
And with that said, I want to pray. He said, go to sleep and we can pray later, go to sleep. So he insists upon other that until there that just goes to sleep. And then he wakes up a Buddha in the last third of the night.
And he says, let's pray. So they pray together. And then Salam will be alone and who says to whom the data will be alone? Yeah, about that, in nearly enough cigar Lake Hapa while he early Kalika haka while Europe became a lake, listen, yourself has a right upon you. Your family has a right upon you. Your Lord has a right upon you. For it cooler the hug can give every one of those things they do, right?
You can't do this. This isn't balanced. This isn't proportionate. You have to give yourself right. You have to give your family a right and of course give your LORD his right and by the way, when you serve yourself for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah meaning you you discipline yourself you you treat the amount of that Allah has given you of yourself well that's a bother and when you serve your family that's a bad attitude right? But you've got to balance this all out. So sentimental the low tide and home he goes to the prophets of Allah and he was selling I'm sorry I would the data or the law and he goes to the profit slice and I would there that is like this guest problem.
Right? So he says to us Allah slice I'm Jarocin Allah, you put salon in my house and salons making me break my fast and he's making me sleep at night. And he said to me that your Lord has a right upon you your family has a right upon yourself has a right upon you. aboda thinks the prophets lie Saddam is going to call someone and say you know maybe in your old religion,
but these are my companions. This is how they act. The prophets lie Selim looks about the data or the law and the dead in the eye and says sadaqa Salmaan sadaqa Salman sadaqa Sandman, Sandman Africa humaniq Salman has told the truth Salman has told the truths and man has told the truth and by the way said a man has better religious understanding than you do.
Subhan Allah will talk about whether that will the law next week will redeem him next week inshallah. But like this was so profound, and some of the scholars reflecting on this, they said Salman hated, hated religious extremism, again, extremism in the sense of little blue people going overboard he hated that disproportionality because he saw it. He seen in practice and he didn't want to see that in Islam. He knew that the spirit of the of the message of the messengers of Allah Azza wa sallam was more wholesome than that. So even though a Buddha had been with the Prophets lie some for a longer time Salman Understood, understood the thrust of the shutter, the thrust of the
legislation, even though he had less time, technically studying it, alongside the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so this is one of the most famous incidence of tsunami of the Allahu Taala animal with the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam and with the Companions other than that there isn't much narrated about salaam will the longtime, except his extreme silence, and the way that he would worship Allah subhanaw taala one of the famous narrations is in fact to Mecca, the conquest of Mecca
and the conquest of Mecca. And this is Annabelle hottie.
Abu Sufyan walks past Salman Sohaib. And Bella, what a sight.
Right? So man Sohaib and Bella walking together.
That shows you the beauty of the OMA right away. Now, there were some hurt feelings, right? Like they fought, abusive, young. They fought harder, didn't worry, right. There were there's some bitter history here. Right. And they don't have the old tribal connections that some of the Muslims have, because they're cousins and uncles and friends, right? So so Nan Sohei and Bilal are walking past Abu Sufyan and they say to Abu Sufyan wala Hema aka that so Eufaula him in our own Opie I do with Allah He met haha
like you're lucky the swords of Allah did not reach the neck of the enemy of Allah. So he said something to him. They said these words double Sofia, right.
Abu Sufyan when he heard that he was upset with it, Abu Bakr and well the Allahu Tada and home this is Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allah Tala and home.
He's thinking about the Dalit part of this he says attacco Luna hardily che trickeration Are you saying this to the elder of police come on like he's saying to build Ireland so Haven salon, that now like we've got to work this out? This shows you again the human side of things, the prophets lie some of course, when he came into Mecca, what did the prophets lie some do? He honored a bossa Fianna as a means of winning his heart over and look what happened as a result of that Abu Sufyan was in his ranks after that, and was with the prophets like some in the battlefield and doesn't leave aside after that. So the Prophet sighs I'm new the psychology of these people and winning them
over and really showing them that you're not going to be below
ruled and degraded now that you are in Islam Soboba can only Allah and who has a point he's saying look, there's no need for you to say that to him. I know that there's a history but you shouldn't have said that to him.
Abubaker felt like he may be offended Bilal so hey bin Salman. So he came to the Prophet slice Allah. He told the profit slice on what happened. The Prophet size some said Yeah, Becca, la. Bought the home. La Quinta have bought a home. Sorry, I like a lot of adopter home. La Quinta, a lot to home la adapter of back Oh, elbow back in. You might have upset them those three might have made them angry. And if you did that, then you would have upset your Lord. So I will back it all the Allahu Anhu is a Sadiq This is never about himself. So he goes to so Hey, Salman and Billa and he says yeah, what ah, oh my brothers. Are you upset with me? A lot too. Are you upset with me? And
they said law your fear Allah Hudak they said no or brother May Allah forgive you like so hey, listen, man. And like no, of course I was like, and we're not mad at you. Sell him did it.
But the point is, is that the prophets lie Selim was showing the status of these people.
That yes, even if maybe that wasn't the best thing to say when the prophets lie Selim is saying Whoever enters into the house is almost a piano safe and the prophets lie. Some is trying to assure that the skeptical Meccans that this isn't going to be a revenge fest. But even then the prophets like Selim is upholding the sanctity of these people. When a Sula sai sun passes away Abubaker Salif or the Allahu taala. And home makes him a general in the army, some man will the Allah Allah general in the army, and so not only Allah and who, generally speaking at this point, still assumes a place of obscurity amongst the people, a place of contemplation. And one of the instances narrated is that
a man came into Medina at the time, and he saw Suriname or the Allahu taala. And
there's still an elephant, he brought some some some fodder with Durham. And then he looked around to see who's going to carry his stuff for him. So he saw cinemawall The Allah and who and because of the nature of the waste, that man would carry himself in the souk, you would have thought that he was a poor man. So he said to Salman, hey, you know, come carry my stuff for me. And here's the deal Hunter
said Mama, the Allah and what does he do? He carries the man stuff. So Salman is walking
with this man carrying his stuff. And people are all rushing towards him and they're saying nothing you know, I don't care about the law will carry your stuff or you will carry your stuff or we'll carry your stuff against a mammal the law is saying No, leave me alone. Leave me alone. I've got it. I've got it. I've got it. So the man who asks a man to carry stuff he's like who is this guy? Right? Tell you some Persians leave hanging out. You know where's Who is this guy? For call will have us Almansa Hebrew rasool Allah, this is Salam, the great companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so he gets scared. He says, Oh, son, man, I didn't know who you were. I didn't know who
you were. And salon or the Allahu Anhu refuses to let go of his stuff until he takes the man to his place, gives the man his stuff and he assumes his humility. So if you saw Salam or the Allah on her walking around Medina, you really would not assume much of him because he kept himself very humble and very pious. So not only Allah and who narrates when I go back to the study hall, the Allahu Anhu was then dying. And there's a common theme here with the type of advice that he's going to get from the companions. He says that I came to Abu Bakr as the vehicle the Allahu taala. And who, when he was dying for Becca and the ROTC here or the Allahu Taala and horses and mammal, the Allahu Anhu
came in he sat next to his head and said model the lower animals started to cry.
And he said, Yeah, Khalifa Tala Sula. Oh Sunny.
It's a man says doubleback they call the Allahu Taala and oh Khalifa of the Messenger of Allah. Give me advice. So we're back here with the Allahu Taala and who says to him in hola Tabata, Kota Allah 30 Hoon Alikum with dunya Allah is going to open the treasures of this world to you. I mean the treasures of this world are going to be given to you, fella Holden minha elaborate Allah don't take from it except what you need.
wylam and naman salah, Salah to sub for whoever the the Mattila and know that the one who prays Fajr is under the protection of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. So do not tell her to fear and Allah azza wa jal Luffy, the matagi failure cookbook Allahu Allah when she can now do not abandon the protection of Allah upon you and then you end up falling into the Hellfire on your face. So hold on to your Salam. Hold on to your budget and presumably budget with all of its rights. Right
Hold on to your Salam properly and you will be in the protection of Allah subhanaw taala every day, do not relinquish that protection from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and then you end up face first in the fire. So Samantha advice from Abu Bakr Siddiq is that
Islam is going to spread and Allah is going to come to you Don't be deceived by this dunya I'm going to topple the Allah Tala and who had a great liking towards the model the Allah and and so he appoints him at some point a general some point and adviser at some point and adviser to the Persians as well but Salman occupies a much more prominent place and of course the feed off of Amara was much longer than the Khilafah Rebecca study for the Allahu Taala animals so cinnamon is one of the closest people to America Pablo the Allah Tala and and he's also his neighbor by the way. Even if you look at the the old homes of the Sahaba Medina Salam Amel, the Allahu Anhu is basically the
neighbor of almond ricotta, or the Allahu Taala and so they're very very close. And an incident happens in the feed off of our model the Allah Tala animal that's narrated in the books of law because there's something profound about it. So if no claim of course dedicates a section of LM and water into this, where cinnamon essentially is going to challenge I'm gonna read a couple little the Allahu Taala
and almost all the Allahu Anhu comes out. And he says to the people listen and obey here and obey, basically addressing the people that I'm about to give you something and I need you to listen and accept the following orders which was commonplace of the Khalifa to address the people. So a man will be allowed to animal stands up and he says wala hula and US marijuana?
I swear by Allah, we will not listen to you, nor will we obey you.
Now amaro the Allahu Anhu. If he was a tyrant, he would have said what
take them out, Amaro the law and was also much bigger that man than him, he could have done something he could have made an example out of him. He could have said something to him, I'll model the law and his answer was what?
Why are you saying that to me? Why are you saying we weren't here you know, they you think about some hello how profound that is the Khalifa having this conversation with this strange man, right? And in terms of lineage and prominence, why? And he says to, I'm gonna reach the top of the Allahu Anhu when you received cloth that there was some cloth that came to you, and you gave a share to the entire Ummah, you gave a piece of that cloth to everyone. You took two for yourself, and you gave one to everyone else.
Can you imagine if that was the complaint we had about our leaders today in the Muslim world?
Like, hey, I want you to listen to me. You know, when this money came in, you took double, and then you gave everybody else just one share. It's not good enough fear Allah. Right, like Subhan Allah that shows you the world and the culture that they lived in, in this regard.
All over the Cotabato. The Allah I know does not say to him, like big deal. I'm the Khalifa. I took two pieces, and you have one, I kind of deserve that. And I live my life in a pretty simple way. I'm not only a longtime man who says to him,
or he rather He says to his son, Abdullah, and Omar says Abdullah, stand up
and explain to him the situation. So Abdullah stands up and says that my father is a really tall man.
So because one cloth would not cover him, I gave him my share. And then he had the two cloths stitched together. And that's what he has on right now. So he actually didn't take two shares. He just took my share his son, and stitch them together, because the piece of cloth wouldn't have fit him as it was. So the man will the Allahu Anhu says, now will listen to you and obey you. And he sits back down and model the law. And he continues with the address. What a world's panela what a culture, what type of companions and what type of people, these were. And if you think about this, think about one set anomaly Allahu Tada, and who was in Syria and he stood up in Syria, challenging
the people said, man, well, the Allahu taala. And who was not wanting to be quiet when he saw what he perceived as Buddha, which is also profound. When he saw injustice, what he perceived to be an injustice he spoke, which is the perfection of that man's wisdom. He wasn't always running his mouth about things. But when he spoke, it was for a reason. And in that situation, because he perceived an injustice and even if it was from Ameerul Momineen, honorable Capalbo the law and who you need to explain this injustice, what is it that we are seeing? Now what happens with some anomaly Allahu Anhu after that, and I'll try not to go too much longer in the nighttime because I know we have
salatu Russia, that will push back just a little bit.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
when he was saying
sending letters to the leaders of the world you have the famous incident. After her they BIA when the Prophet slice and M could now send ambassadors to world leaders where he sent Abu Sufyan to Huracan to the leader of the Romans, right, a very famous narration between Abu Sufyan and Morocco. And Morocco basically knew was the truth. But he concealed it because he didn't want to lose his kingdom. All right. So some leaders responded to the prophets lie some aggressively, some leaders responded to the prophets lie, some of the majority would just, you know, no response at all. And, of course, some like in the Joshi, the very few and the leader of Bahrain at the time, some of them
responded with something favorable to the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam. When it came to kissa, Kisara, the leader of the Persians at the time, when they say be to Kisara Kisara, of course, is a title posts role. The second, who is the current leader at that time posts are the second
was the exact same age as the prophets lie some in some non fantasy will be a lot of data. And this was, this man was considered the most successful leader of the Persians, a very strong man, someone who was deemed to be fit to basically put the Romans to end once and to put them to rest once and for all that he was going to end the Roman Empire. Remember this war between the Romans and the person was over 700 years Kisara this man was a military genius or so he was perceived to be that way and was a very arrogant man. They talk about in the history of books, his palaces, being the most lavish palaces in the world at the time.
You know, and all sorts of other wealth and you know, 1000s of servants and slaves that he had around him, the man was a pompous ruler, but a military genius and a very arrogant man. And again, he basically had his foot on the neck of the Romans. That's why you have so the throne. He took the cross, the cross from Jerusalem and desecrated it, massacres, 90,000 people in Jerusalem The man had no mercy with his adversaries. So he's an arrogant person.
The prophets like some wrote a letter to him inviting him to Islam after they be
and some of the scholars that we don't have a Senate a chain to actually verify this for sure. But it could be this anomaly Allah Allah himself might have wrote that letter. Why because the man is the Persian. So the letter is going out in the language of that man and the prophets like some sons, Abdullah, or daffodil, the Allahu Taala and who to kiss Allah to deliver the letter.
The letter reads, men Muhammad Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Isla Kisara, or the mill force from Mohammed, the messenger of Allah to Kisara the great one of Persia, and it says a Salam or Allah Manitoba, alHuda peace beyond to those who accept rightful guidance s&m teslim
accept Islam and you will be given Salam you'll be given peace your cheek Allahu hydrochemical attain Allah will give you the reward twice your own Islam and the reward of your people. And if you turn away then you'll have your own sin and the sin of your people as well.
Kisara in his pettiness and some of you heard me speak about the story before so you might remember what upset him so much. Anyone remember?
He said Beda be izmi Couple of ESMI How dare he start with his name on the letter before my name
min Mohammed like next time you write a two in front of somebody make sure you you might be writing to a kisser like figure, right? So make sure you put the two before the from right. How dare he put his name on top of my name. So respectful, minimal hang a little silly last lie. So I'm from the profit slice Allah Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah to kiss Allah, the leader of the Persians. So he tears the letter up, throws it at the Lagna for the Alpha threatens him and says I'm coming after the one who sent you with this letter. You let them know I'm after him that I'm gonna come basically cut his head off.
And he actually appoints the than who was the governor of Yemen. Yemen was a client kingdom of the Persians. He says Send me your nastiest to hitman to Medina. And let them go make an example out of that person who claims to be a messenger of Allah and the desert over there amongst the Arabs.
Now, when our beloved prophet comes back to the prophets, I seldom tells him what happened that he tore the letter up and threw it at him the prophets lysozyme responded Meza, Allah Homolka who may Allah tear up his kingdom as he tore up the letter? So what ends up happening Subhanallah at that point,
by the time the Hitman came to Medina, the prophets lie some had them
taken and brought to the prophets lie some and the prophets lie some recognize them. Djibouti had already his Salam had informed him about
The plot of these two men, and the Prophet sighs I'm told them that the man who sent you has already been killed.
And the prophets I said, I'm said, go back to buy them, the Yemeni governor, and tell him that I am a prophet of Allah. And that one day, Islam will reach Yemen. Let him proceed Islam reaching Yemen by becoming Muslim first, and he'll have the reward of his people as well.
Now, by the time the hitmen get back to Medina, they indeed found out that kislak had been killed. And that Dan said, I'm accepting Islam so he actually responded to the message of the prophets lie. So now what happened to the Prophet SAW Salem, send some hitman to Persia, to take Kisara out no Subhanallah this kingdom that had been stable for decades suddenly starts to go through all sorts of turmoil turmoil, his own son kills him. And then this his daughter kills his son, and then his daughter's daughter kills her and takes the kingdom. When the prophets lie, some said Meza Karla Homolka May Allah tear up his kingdom that meant rebellion and COO rebellion and COO rebellion and
COO every brother and sister and grandson and granddaughter held that Kingdom at some point, within a decade all of a sudden the stable Kingdom the Persian Empire falls apart. And now
you have the current leader of Persia.
I'm gonna topple the Allah Tala and who and the Persians are at war, all model the Allahu Taala and who, in this battle with the Persians, he sends side of your castle, the Allahu Anhu is the number one, Salman al Farsi all the Allahu Anhu as the number two.
So now you have Salam or the Alo unhulled, the Persian man, and you have the Persian Empire on the other side. And of course, these were some of the most epic battles that exists in the history of Islam between the Persian Empire which was hostile and nasty used elephants and all types of weapons and all types of things, tactics and inflicted heavy casualties on anyone that they were hostile towards. But now you have side little the low on one side mountain Forest Hill, the low tide and and they have penetrated deep into the Persian Empire and they are literally right in front of the Tigris River.
And if you look at a map the Tigris River is basically a hunt duck. It's basically a natural trench because it encircles the medallion. it encircles the main city where the palace of kissa is which isn't a lot by the way because it was part of the Persian Empire
and so I didn't want to be will cost and sell mammal the law and who arrived with the Muslim army in front of the Tigris River.
And saddle the Allahu Anhu says haspin Allah and airmen Joaquin wala he Leon Suren Allahu Allah, wa ala youth hearin Allah Deena what is the man Allah I do in Namibia confit JC Bethune oh the Nova and taglib has enough he said, I swear by Allah, that Allah will give victory to his loving servants and Allah subhanaw taala will make victory HIS WILL will make victorious his religion and Allah will defeat his enemies so long as we don't have sins or transgressions amongst us that would void our good deeds what sad saying he's saying Look we're gonna be okay if our hearts are okay
if we are people of purity Allah subhanaw taala will give us victory because we deserve victory if we're not we're gonna suffer defeat so nominal the law on who responds to Saturday little the Allah Han
and he said in an Islamic Jihad Eden, zhu li la la mala Hill hood Komodo Lila Hummel about mo Alladhina Susannah Beardy, Leia Rajan, Minho, fyh and Canada Hello aquantia. So now the Allahu Anhu says, Allah will make the oceans, the water subservient to them, the same way that Allah has made the land subservient to them, if they are, indeed, as you say, Assad, and he says, We will enter into that river and come out of it as we are, if we are, as you said. So what do they do? Sad Salman and the Muslim army go into the river 30,000 of them enter into the river and come out of the river. And the Persian Empire is on the other side watching this thinking like, you know, we want they
can't come here. We're good here. And they start to see the Muslims come into the river and then start to rise out and they didn't even lose a pot or a pan
or a single shield or weapon. And so they start to scream Shayateen Shayateen devils devils and they run away
and they come out and they enter and this is where they arrive now at the city of Allah Medan which is the last bastion of kissa and Persia which is where the greatest Palace is.
The world existed at the time. It's about 15 miles south of Baghdad, and they come to the palace of kislak.
And it's super magical the Allahu taala. And Han describes this moment where they arrive outside of the palace of Kistler.
And he said that the Muslims all turned to some man and they said, what did we do? I mean, this is your area, this is your territory, you know, this place? These are your people, what do we do?
So, the man will the Allahu Anhu says, give me a chance to call them to Islam.
Let me go talk to them.
So and so the law and reassess that amount will be a lot of data and who gets off of the horse? And he walks up to them and they look at him so confused. Like what is it with these Muslims they show up with herbal additive in Assam, it's in Egypt, right what is the black man doing leading you and then they show up with Salam o the Allah and what is the Persian man doing? This is confusing to them. Who are these people? So the Persians are looking at submodel the Allahu Anhu. And they're thinking what? Oh, he's probably a sellout. You know, like, he's probably I mean, like a spy of Persian spy that penetrated the other army. So the man will be Allah and who comes up? And he says
to them in Nama and Raju and minquan, he said, By the way, I am one of you 30 see you and I'm up Persian like you. And then Sandman points to the sahaba. And he said todo en el Alaba. You'll play your own and you see all these Arabs, they follow me.
I'm not some little cheap spy that was picked off. I am their leader. And he says for in a slump term fella called Mr. Allah de Luna. Wa alaykum Mithila Dr. Lena, if you embrace Islam, you'll have the same honor that I have. And you will have the same responsibilities that I have. What in a Batum Illa Dena comb and a few turn back and you accept only your way Torok nakoma Allah here, we will leave you to it. You will pay the Jizya and you'll live with your rights. And then anisul The law and who said he started to talk to them in Persian
and he said to them, well, antenatal Maha Modine don't take that option because it's not the best for you, you won't be praiseworthy people. Like I'm telling you out of love for you. We're not going to come kill you and massacre you and you're innocent and things of that sort. But I'm telling you embrace Islam, and you'll have the same honor that I have.
And if you don't, we'll leave you to it. So they spent a few days doing so. And they did not respond to the call. And then finally, beta Kisara was conquered. And Salman will the Allahu Taala and who enters in and the Sahaba enter in. And you remember what the prophet sighs I'm told Soraka bumalik in the Hijra on the Prophet slicin was on the run and he got caught by Soraka Soraka was catching the futures of the prophets like some of the prophets lie, some said, how will it be Oh Soraka you're going to be carrying the heavy gold bracelets of KISSFLOW on your hands when
that's when the prophets lie. Sonam is running away with a bounty on his head. And then the light of Islam reaching Medan the palace of Persia was when the prophets lie some was in the trench and Salon was with the profit slice on them and the profit slice that made your atlas anomaly a little tighter and who would be there when that happened? And here they are. And they enter into Madonna and the palace of kissel at the Palace of the Persian Empire. Madonna and was named renamed some years later after some nefarious evil the Allah and also became Medina to Selma. The city of Salon role model the Allahu Anhu it's only poetic and it's only right Omar appointed salon with the law and who the
governor of the seat of the Persian Empire and role model the law and who commissioned him to that lofty Palace anomaly Allah annual did not want that whole palace and Nan took a room all the way in the front.
And he completely rejected the luxury that existed at the time. And all model the Allahu Taala and who commissioned him to govern and he gave him a salary of 5000 dirhams a month Salman with distributed integrity. And this is how some man lives the rest of his life out. So the man or the Allah and who chooses instead of going back to the palace of Persia and living as a king, salaam will the Allah Tada and who chooses to plant date palms around him and tend to the trees and sell dates in the marketplace like everyone else? And he does that with two people. You know why? Because the Muslims did not force the Zoroastrians to convert hundreds of years and Zoroastrianism was still
the main the major religion, they didn't burn down their temples. They didn't force them to convert. So sentimental the Allahu Anhu took the most simple job of picking dates from the trees and selling them to the people and doing Dawa to his people, the Persian Muslim ruler,
doing dalla to the Persian Zoroastrians, who lived under the most pompous empire that the world had seen at that time. I know I have to end Subhanallah so I just want to end with two things. One of them said Manuel the Allahu anhu, receiving a letter from a Buddha or the Allah.
Remember his brother in Medina Where's up without a doubt now a Buddha is in Jerusalem. He's in it
puts we're going to talk about him next week. Salam o the Allah animals in Persia now brother that sends him a letter. And he says to him a Salam or Aleikum, WA archy peace beyond to you, my beloved brother, and I'm gonna eat a lot of them will come on to the Holy Land. Let's live out the rest of these years together. It's Pamela how beautiful. We're retired now. We're in our 80s We've done enough. Let's live out the rest of our days in this beautiful place in Jerusalem. And Salam o the Allahu Anhu sends back a letter to a Buddha or the law of Title I know why they Casella Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh yeah he peace be on to you my brother in an alder law to cut this will
hada the land does not make anyone holy. We're in NEMA UCAT diesel in Santa Ana law. But the only thing that makes a man holy is his deeds.
Does that's the last letter that's a mammal the law of Thailand who wrote back to his brother, who he would correspond with sad little the Allahu Taala and who visited San Manuel the Allahu Anhu when he was dying in Persia.
And as he was visiting him, he found Salam o the Allahu Taala and who crying.
So he gave salam to him. And he said now you click here, what is it that's causing you to cry? Oh, my brother, and testicular Masha had the Saudi had Don't you remember how all of the rightest moments what a history you have? Like imagine if salon wrote an autobiography? What a history you have with the Prophets lie summon with the companions. What good you have done. So the man says in the Hawala hiya side, so I swear to you, oh, sad now Yukine Wahida two minutes nine, I'm not crying over two things that people typically cry about when they die. He said, My upkeep on them the dunya Allah Cara here telling me Allah I'm not crying because I'm going to miss this world or because I
hate to meet Allah Subhana Allah. So I had said familial kick about the feminine so what's causing you to cry, you're in your 80s you've lived the full life. He said Yukine and hallelujah, he hadn't said what I'm crying about as I'm remembering that my beloved when the prophets lie, some took an oath with me. Allah mantra he that he like, what did he say to you? He said, I hate that you Lena Leah Cohen Bella akumina Dunya Casa de walkup the prophets like some said Let what you take from this world be like the provision of a traveler don't let this world's oil you don't let the luxury of this world spoil you you're gonna have palaces come back to you and the world present itself to
you Don't be spoiled by this dunya
and said anomaly Allah says we'll end up at Hasina and PATA Edina. I'm afraid that maybe we didn't live up to that. So I'm remembering a promise that the profit sighs I'm took for me and I'm afraid we didn't do that. So nominal, the Allahu Anhu passed away in the heart of the Persian Empire where he left for the sake of Allah, this time as a leader as a ruler as a scholar as one of the most beloved companions. And they said that in the house of cinema, all he had was a blanket, cooking utensils and 20 Durham's he died on the Allahu Anhu before the fitna broke out.
So he didn't get to see the division amongst the companions. He was spared from that. But Subhanallah it is beautiful, that when you think about God, when you think about the Divine Decree,
you hear about the story of phenomenal the law and when you feel pain at his struggle yesterday. It's like oh my god, like it's like watching a bad movie, right? Like everything. Every time you think things are going right, something goes wrong, right? All the struggle, struggle, struggle, struggle struggle. If cinemawall The Allahu Anhu never left the Persian Empire for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala.
