Unlike other books today, I mean, today you look at the Bible, even according to Christian scholars, they're not sure who are the people who wrote the Bible in the Gospel according to Matthew, Mark, John, Luke, they're not really sure who these people are. Yes, some of them say

The the people have narrated that you have heard it from Abdullah Abdullah, who you said has heard it from awkward naffaa Now did Abdullah Did he hear from Akbar? I mean is did he actually hear from the sahabi this this narration, I want to verify He said

So he said, You know what, I'm gonna go and see Abdullah and I'm gonna go and ask him myself, whereas Abdullah, and oppa is in Mecca. So Shama then goes on his journey from Basra to Mecca see all that distance to crossing basically the Arabian Peninsula.
