This is where we reached I've just given a very quick translation.
We stopped here last week. And just to recap.
In the 16th of hyjal, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had agreed a truce with
the murkiness and that truth came to be known as sort of an idea, the truths of who they be.
They be is the name of the place, approximately six miles from Makkah, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was camped.
At the time that this truce was agreed. This is where he was camped at the time that the truce was agreed they had halted there, they weren't allowed to continue. So they had to return to Medina. This came to be known as the truce of today be
part of the one of the clauses of this truce was that for 10 years, both parties, the Moroccans and their allies in the middle, the people of Medina and their allies would lay down their arms, and not engage in any warfare in any sort of armed conflict. This also allowed a free passage for people
for the Munchkins, to travel north upwards, past Medina, onwards to Syria charm, where they were able to trade freely taking advantage of this truce and have this freedom to trade without any fear of being harassed or ambushed. I've also found that a very large caravan. He says that there was not a single family in the whole of Makkah, was a man or a woman who had not invested in that trade caravan. And he was in charge of it was under his leadership with approximately 30 of the men. And he took them up north to sham.
And at that time, they were specifically in the port of Gaza, Gaza.
And whilst they were trading there in the port city of Gaza.
What had also happened is heraclius, who was a Byzantine Roman Emperor,
he had been engaged in a very long campaign of warfare with the
other superpower of the time, the society, Persian Empire. And despite having suffered immense losses, initially heraclius through his
military capability, and his political leadership, he was able to reverse the tide, and
fight back the sustaining Persians and actually defeat them in battle.
And you in quite a dramatic and radical way, despite having lost most of his realm, pre initially, somewhat so that even Jerusalem had been lost to the Persians. Now it's been one back here actually is that valid, that if Allah granted Well, if God since it was a very devout Christian,
you're actually declared that if God and he was the regarded as the Holy Roman Emperor, and the Byzantine Christian Emperor, because it was the capital of the Roman Empire, and not just of
the Roman Empire in worldly terms, but also of Christendom. So he, he vowed to God that if God delivered him from the Persians and granted him victory, he would make a pilgrimage on foot to Jerusalem and pay homage to God.
So he emphatic so because of his victories, he made his way to Jerusalem.
Once he was in Jerusalem, since he was a scholar of the he was a devout Christian, he consulted with the with his clergy, with his bishops.
And he was well in tune and well versed with Christian scriptures.
And because of his interest also in astrology and soothsaying and fortune telling, etc. He
realized that he surmised that many greats events were about to take place.
And in that period, he also saw according some narrations, it was actually
According to others, it was his own surmising, but he felt that a prophet was about to appear or a great leader was about to appear.
Once he was in Jerusalem at that time,
one of the guys planted
rulers, these were Arabs, that
he sent word
about the Prophet sallallahu. It was just informing heraclius of the emergence of the prophets of Allah.
And shortly thereafter, a letter also followed.
And the letter was sent by the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam again, he took advantage of this truce offer the idea to establish extensive diplomatic ties, and exchange letters with many of the rulers in the region. And one of those letters was dispatched to Heraclitus, being the Byzantine Roman Emperor, at that time, the most powerful person, because it's the sun Persian Empire had been thoroughly weak. And the dominant rulers at the time were the dominant power, at the end of that war between perjury and wrong, was heraclius. So he sent him a letter to the letter arrived here actually is read the letter
pondered over it's reflected on it, kept it. And then he decided to make further inquiries about the profits, the law, it was some of them on the basis of what he knew from the letter, and also once he was informed of by the, by his dishonored, ally, the error of ally from the Pakistani tribes.
So he enquired from his core tears and his generals that are there any Arabs or any of the people of the Arabs that this person belongs to in our realm that we can question about this man. So obviously, at the time, they didn't know who was who was available, but they said, We will search so he said, turn the whole of Sherm inside apps, and bring me some Arabs that I can interrogate about this man.
So almost a fan was in
the port of Oz. And that's when the soldiers of heraclius arrived, and took him and his whole group and hauled them to Jerusalem. There have also found along with his whole entourage, the whole caravan, they were summoned to the Royal Palace of heraclius. And this is where this conversation took place. So one can imagine the scene. This is now heraclius, the Byzantine Roman Emperor, the leader of Russia, the leader of Christmas,
and he is victorious, having just defeated the Persian Empire and inflicting having inflicted great losses on them. This is the dominant superpower of time. And he summons of all Sophia along with the 30 others, they are brought into the Royal Hall. And they're in another generation of Buhari, although it's not here. Also fiance's we were ushered in to the Royal Hall, the Royal coal, and there was heraclius with his crown on his head, surrounded over here, the wording is what hola horas amount of room around him with the dignitaries of Rome.
And in another narration around him where the patricians are the patriarchs, the bishops, and the clergy.
So it's called tears all the greats ones, the dignitaries, the civil leaders, the military leaders, were all around. In this opulent oil palace, also Fiona's called they were made to sit in front of him. Then heraclius said, Who is the closest to this man who claims to be a prophet amongst you? And most of you answered I am. So he brought him closer than he said, Bring the others place them behind him. If he learns, then you signal to me indicate to me and you reject what he's saying you belie him. This is where he stops also fiance's.
Like if it wasn't for the shame,
of a lie being attributed to me and my colleagues, quoting a lie from me
I would have surely lied against him meaning the profits of the La Liga or something.
And I ended by saying that the loss of Yeah,
because the Arabs were close knit, and they were in a foreign land.
So the Arabs tend to have this or the Arabs then had this mentality because tribal society.
And a good way of understanding it is even today in tribal societies the mentality is
it it's my brother in law against you.
To the cousin brother, they will say it's my brother, am I against you.
But if it's the third person, they'll say, it's my cousin, brother and I against you.
So, despite their inner squabbles, they were a united group. So the Arabs despite their disagreement, they were in a foreign land. So also can was quite confident that even if he lied about the Prophet sallallahu he was sending his group of caravan traders would not let heraclius know that of all Sofia in his life.
So he doesn't say they would reject me. That wasn't his fear. His fear was that they may not say anything in the Royal Court there and then, when we return to Arabia in future at any time, if any one of this caravan, tell someone else that abuse of young allied, even against his enemy, Mohammed, the son of Abdullah, Salaam Alaikum wa sallam, this would have been a thing of great shame and embarrassment.
And what that shows is that the Arabs, yes, they lived in a period of jalahalli ignorance. But despite that period of jahir, they were a warrior nation. They were chivalrous. They had a concept of nobility of dignity of chivalry. And part of that nobility and dignity and chivalry was that they would not lie,
even against the enemy.
They hated hypocrisy.
That's why you look at
Those who oppose the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they were opening their hostility.
Those who believed were openly believers except for the few who feared for their lives. But lying was frowned upon.
And it was considered a manually undignified that's a person constantly tiptoes around the other and conceals one's intentions, one's true possession. So the Arabs would speak the truth. Of course, there were exceptions, undoubtedly. But as a nation as a people as a tradition, as a code of honor, according to the Arabs line was greatly frowned upon. That's why I also have young, even in this intimidating
position, even in these intimidating surroundings of the opulent, powerful royal Byzantine Roman court. This was his unique and golden opportunity to somehow win victory against the prophets of Allah it was to damage this cause to harm one word, in the presence of heraclius, the mighty Roman Emperor,
even if it was a lie, would have achieved more than what all the Munchkins in the arratia tried to do for the past
20 or so years,
since 13 years in Makkah, and this was in approximately the seventh year of profits. So for the past 20 years, what they could not have achieved with the Prophet against prophets of Allah it was one word of allies slipped and in that conversation to heraclius amounts Roman Emperor would have achieved what they always wanted. But the very shame of having a lie attributed to him, prevented him from lying against profits in the law, even though he was his enemy. And as part of that code of honor, I mentioned that when of all Sophia arms daughter
was married to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his cousin brother, obey the law had no jash when he died, and she was widowed.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was in Medina at the time, she was still in our senior. He sent word proposing
And asking for her hand in marriage. Here at the joshy negus. He conducted the marriage ceremony. He even paid a very hefty dowry on behalf of Habiba de la. That's why out of all the wives, the diary of Mahavira, the alarm rang, he was the most expensive, because negus in the joshy, the ruler of a senior, he actually paid for the profits of the love, it was sometimes dairy on her behalf. So he paid her dairy and she married him, and that was a daughter of all Sophia. So Subhana Allah, she is an ABA senior. She now becomes a wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he is in Medina, and also known as
homeless to all Sophia and felt or should have felt when he learns that my daughter has married my most bitter enemy,
the enemy of my family, the enemy of my people.
when he hurt him, how should he have felt yet because of that code of honor. Because of that chivalry
have also found when he learns that my daughter has married the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, she has married a worthy man,
even though he was his enemy.
And this was a unique feature of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. Some of his bitterest enemies, their daughters, their wives, their families became sincere believers and their children and their daughters, actually, some of their daughters actually married the Prophet some of the law it was one of them, you had created in Medina, his daughter, Sophia Viola
was the leader of the tribe of women.
And even though he was banished from Medina, he did not rest. He was allowed to go in peace, but he went to haber. And from there, he continued to instigate the Quraysh against Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from aka. Later his daughter Sophia Viola and her married the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam abuse of yams daughter, Ramallah in Mojave bajo de la Mancha, she married the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So
this was a code of honor, they could not tolerate the thought of lying even against the enemy.
And it was considered a thing of great shame.
And in all societies, lines frowned upon.
in some ways, it becomes so normal that it's tolerated. And but in Panama, lying is destructive, it really is distinct. When a person lies once you have to lie nine to nine times to conceal the first.
That's why they say if you want to be a lie, you have to be a brilliant
you have to be a consumer, an expert, that you never slip up, but the amount of mental energy and stress that are required in order to preserve a lie or just not worth
lying is frowned upon lying is district.
It really is district.
When a person lands, a person deceives the
and deceiving the other.
If someone lies to me, they are deceiving me. They are making a mockery of me. They are making a fool of me.
They are playing with me.
I trust them. And they lied to me. They abused my trust, I honor them. And they dishonor me and laugh at me in hearts and man.
They give me a smile of love and friendship. But in hearts and mind, they laugh at me, because they know they are making a fool of me.
They are robbing me of my dignity
by lying land.
And that's true for any. This is why he foresaw the loss of the law. It says it is an act of great treachery
that you speak to your brother and he believes you
and yet you are aligned.
So it's not just the sin of line. He says it's an act of great treachery. And that's why lying is forbidden in the
image. Below here Lee relates and eration in his mock law, it's a Muslim narration in which it said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
can a man be a can a believer can be a coward? Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he can.
That he was asked.
Can lachemann a believer? Be miserly, tight fisted? Can he be stingy? Have some The law says he can.
When he was asked, Can a mock Minh a believer be a liar? prophets in the law it
In another narration, narrated by one of the other authors, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked similarly about other things, such as death
and another sin again the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, what men can do.
Then he was asked canon Walkman Can I believe a lie? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said no, then he recited the verse of the Quran in the mayor steady, gettable Nadine and
only those who do not believe in the signs of Allah, in the verses of Allah, only they lie.
What that verse shows is only those who do not believe in the verses and the signs of Allah lie line cannot go hand in hand with EMA
they cannot go hand in hand with email. This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says line is a sign of hypocrisy. In the Hadees later bamboo Hardyman Muslim, La Jolla from Abu huraira hora de la
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Are you familiar with the law
that had the covenant, whatever word that what is that domina harm. The signs of a hypocrite are three. The first one when he speaks.
Number two, when he makes a promise,
he fails to fulfill his promise. And number three, when he is entrusted with a man with a trust, he violates that trust. And in another Hadith again related by man will hardly any man Muslim email. But this one is related from Abdullah having an angry blast of the Allahumma Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says at a very low fee, kind of an African ha this woman cannot feel certain men who cannot see her for certain minimum the fact that they have their dominant hand, we either had the other way around, I had the other way that have some of the jell O come out of some of the law. It was some of them, he says and listen to the heavy very carefully. There are four things four
traits, which is found in a person, Gunderman African harness, and he is a pure hypocrites. And if he has one of these four traits, then he has in him a traits of hypocrisy until he eradicate it until he leaves it. And what are the four number one same as the previous had that domina harm when he is entrusted with a trustee violates that trust number two,
with a head when he speaks ILA
number three with the other. When he
agrees, something promises something he breaks it. So these three are exactly the same as the other three.
And there's one additional trade here which is not mentioned in the head either above or below one, which is what is our hearts Some are fragile, when he disagrees with someone then his sin. What that simply means is that if he has a disagreement with another, he does not keep that disagreement within its bounds. Rather, he goes beyond the bounds.
As humans we all disagree.
Husband and wife disagree.
Father and Son disagree mother and daughter disagree.
Human nature, we disagree with ourselves.
Forget anybody else we disagree with ourselves.
our emotions fluctuate even about ourselves.
Part of the day, we may think I'm so great.
And then something happens and we're down in the dumps and worthless and useless.
We all have our bouts of self flagellation and navel gazing
self pity. And other moments of the day we were on cloud nine on top of the world.
It's human nature. So if our emotions fluctuate, our perceptions fluctuate, our thoughts fluctuate about ourselves. And we can't agree with ourselves about ourselves having a last name do you expect two people to agree?
So, conflict disagreements are all part of human nature. Islam recognizes that reality is how you manage that conflict, how you manage that disagreement.
And so, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught us that even if you disagree about something, you keep that disagreements within its bounds within its limits.
If someone has a disagreement with the other about some money, he owes him 100 pounds, he's not paying up for
your grievance has recognized
all your complaints, all your ill feeling should be above 100 pounds. There is no point bringing the debtors, mother and father children and families
keep the disagreement within its bounds. That's a sign of
a sign of hypocrisy is what either have some of fecha when he disagrees, he said he does not keep the conflict or the disagreements within its bounds. So the main part of both of these is about lie. Lying is a sign of hypocrisy in one of these Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, the authenticity and the reliability of the Hadeeth isn't going to mean the Senate. But when
a person lives, the angels flee a mile because of the foul odor and smell of the life of a person when he lies, the angels flee.
And I said earlier, lying destroys and speaking the truth say
and I had these properties that are related by man Buhari and the man was a
prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says record well this hadith is from Abdullah and I'm sure there'll be a lot and it's very beautiful.
It's nice, we should actually memorize.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, and equally
This is the wording of a man Muslim in history. And equal
for in the super Yeah, the little bit.
We're in the gym.
Virtually yesterday, we
were in the loss of the what? Yeah.
Okay, the big island for June. We're in them for Julia de Elena. Originally, did we have a look at him. In the Leica M de la hypnosis room, there'll be a lot more MCs the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, adhere to the truth for the truth. truthfulness,
guides a person leads a person to righteousness and virtue
and virtue leads a person to gym.
And a man
continues to speak the truth and actually search for opportunities to speak the truth. search for the truth until he is recorded as a super deep and extremely veracious extremely honest and truthful person by Allah.
Then he says what he up and welcome and fear beware off line for line guides to and lead guides leads a person to the fire. And a man continues to learn and search for law
until he is recorded as a great liar, an excessive liar. by
one line leads to another there's a momentum. Truth leads to truth. Lying leads to further line and there's no end. There's no end to it.
It's always more economical.
People set we say, being economical with the truth. The truth is
if you want to be economy call, speak the truth for lying is causton line is expensive.
In everywhere. And not only that, forget what the what harm it leads to in the world. A person's character is destroyed.
And in that Hadeeth profits
Under the law it
says that if there is one of these traits in the person then there is a trait of hypocrisy in him until he leaves it.
In a verse of the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and what's the meaning of that have ether? If there are four traits in a person, then he is a pure hypocrites. Why is it so deadly? Truth is these four traits is that is one trait in a person, that person has a trait of hypocrisy. And there's a second trait is a second trait hypocrisy if he has all fall and his heart is closed
line is one of those sins, which actually creates hypocrisy in the heart. This is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says, For
you to make your own
llama where I do, American
law says it would be good to understand the verse in reverse. So Allah says,
the man a colorful llama. Why? Because they fail to fulfill their promise to Allah.
And because of the lies that they used to. Because of these two things, they failure to fulfill their promises, and they're lying. What did Allah do for
hypocrisy in their hearts.
So lying and failing to fulfill one's promises, is not only a sign of hypocrisy in itself, it actually creates hypocrisy. That's why these are two of the signs of hypocrisy. And if they are for a person's heart is sealed, he is a pure math.
Lying is deadly is destructive. A lot. More data protects us from this great and evil sin. And alarm makers realize it's one of those
damaging and great Sins of the tongue, to which we pay little attention.
We pay very little attention.
It's destructive. The Arabs have also found even at that time, he wasn't a Muslim.
And yet, against his enemy, he refused to utter a single.
Anyway, we this is where we stopped. Let's continue.
So I was with him saying
I would have surely lied against him. But in another iteration of it, he says but because of that shame, I did not. I spoke the truth to heraclius. He then continues some maganda a weathermaster Alinea, then the first thing which he asked me about him meaning Prophet salaallah alayhi, salaam, once and all that he said, came from the Civil War vehicle.
How is his lineage amongst
all the whorfin as
I said, he is amongst us, a man of great pedigree and lineage.
See if we can spot the truth.
And the questions of heraclius were very accurate, very intelligent.
He had received the letter he knew about the letter.
He knew that this man is claiming to be a prophet.
Now he wants to determine based on his knowledge, worldly knowledge and experience, and his being a devout Christian and his knowledge of the form of scriptures.
He wants to know whether this is a true message or
he didn't reject him.
He knew this was something he wanted more information. So every single one of his questions, was designed to remove all doubt for him and to narrow down and focus on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being a true prophets format.
So he said,
How is this man's lineage
and his ancestry amongst you?
Sort of all stuff Yan said, Who Athena
amongst us. He is a man of great lineage. For those of you who know Arabic and are studying Arabic. How do I translate a man of great lineage when he just sees hoffy Nauvoo, which apparently is simply translates to, he is a man of a lineage of a pedigree amongst us,
as they say the mean or the Dow the Dow the meaning that the
We know what he really thought of him.
I won't translate it because if it's if you are studying Arabic, this suffices. If you aren't, then you won't understand it anyway. So at the end, we know what the needle is. That's why I say he is a man of great lineage and pedigree amongst us, who also can swap the truth.
And remember, iraklia said very intelligently that of this whole group of people who is the closest in lineage to him, because the relative will know more about him than the mum relative. Furthermore, for them, even at that time, ancestry, pedigree, lineage bloodline, all of these meant a lot. So someone who isn't from his family,
there's a possibility that he would attack unnecessarily and as a lie, he will attack his pedigree, his lineage, his ancestry, and his family. But since he is one of the family who would, so that's why heraclius chose him. So he said, Indeed, he is of a great lineage amongst us and without dams, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned that himself in this late by Muslim Lackey. Elaine, is he from work as far as the alarm is very beautiful. He was part of the alarm Ramsay's. I heard the messenger sallallahu some of them say in
the law stuff and none of them in wallet is smart. He
was tough Operation minkee Nana
was the farming operation bunny Hashem was the fan even buddy harsh.
So after that, the law relates in this video recorded my Muslim in history and by others, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a large hos kinema from the children of this married
and from kena la chose the orange.
And from the Quraysh, Allah selected the clan of Hashem, and from the clamor of Hashem Allah selected me.
Now, how does that what how does that translate? A lot I chose Ghana from the children of Israel. We know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is from the children of this married lady.
And it was a very beautiful, his father will say that.
So we know he is from the children are smart enough to them and but the accurate and exact lineage and ancestry and the genealogy between Israel
and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not absolute in the sense that there are many
genealogies available but Islamic sources quite categorically and honestly state that we are unsure about the Miss genealogy between from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam all the way to his marine alayhis salaam. However, we are sure and confident of the accurate genealogy for approximately 20 generations before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that much we do now.
So from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam all the way to add now we know of that genealogy,
but from Adnan to the Prophet smart enough alayhis salam, we do not know for sure.
And if I can just quickly relate the lineage of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then I'll explain the meaning of that.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Mohammed, the son of Abdullah Mohammed Omar Abdullah Talib, even
if not the Manas, even even a killer even in Mora McCarran even in a even a guarded affair, even nomadic in another ebla kena zema in the modelica areas in the motor Adnan Azhar naghmeh. So, all the way to add Nam, we know the lineage we know this for definite. So what was the one of the names that are called out from the children of this marine? What did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say in the last stuffer kidnapped them in what it is to marry from the children who was married Allah selected.
So all the answer, and Ghana is part of the lineage here, another kena
and from Kenan.
He chose brush and who was the Orange Crush was a tribe but who was their ancestor
After whom the Quraysh were named. It was terrible nomadic.
So even if I live in the fear ebenen Malik in another in Akina, so kenema son was mother.
And as we go down one of the children, one of the one of the progeny was nomadic. And I mentioned before that figurative nomadic, his nickname or he was he was orange. And orange means little shark.
So the Arabs, like many tribal societies, they had a tradition of keeping names related to animals. So acid, Lion,
Cheetah, or type of a cheetah, and you had
what I used, which means it's a diminutive, which means, which means little shark, just like the tribal societies are
the Native Americans, setting ball,
Red Horse, wild horse, etc. So the Arabs, these were tribal societies, they pride themselves in these names. I actually mentioned about last week about this idea of killaby, or the law, one with whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually sent the letter to the ruler of the ascendance and he forwarded it to heraclius. And I mentioned that he sent it with him, why did he send it with Dell, Kelby, Adobe, and laquan? Because he was from the tribe of Bengal.
So sometimes people do hesitate. He was a gol D, meaning he was from the triangle.
So is he actually can be maybe it's Calorie Calorie kilbey but it doesn't mean dog. But it's actually calbee because their ancestor was going and these were the bukal known as the ancestors of the children of God. Now girl doesn't just mean dog wolf.
That's what it meant wolf. So these animals cheese, these are predators. So they would they would they like calling themselves after practices. So Wolf, Lion, Cheetah, shark, the apex of the oceans. So relish means a little shark. So the alarm was from the balloon called zaidan heart is the head of the alarm and was also from the animal kingdom, he was from the same tribe as the hell can be so boring
again anymore. So what it means little shark so who was called Little shark, this was fairly nomadic. His name was Rajesh and his ancestors are known as D or H. And from the Quran, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, who who did alar choose? Allah subhanho wa Taala chose the bundle Hashem from Rajesh. The, whose hashing I mentioned that the same one who was buried in Gaza. So Mohammed the son of Abdullah, the son of abdomen, Talib, the son of harsh, so he was a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his
great grandfather. So and then from the whole clan of Hashem, Allah chose the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So that's the meaning of the heavy in the last affair going on of them. And what are these married, a lot chosen, selected Guinean from the children of Maria from Ghana, from the children of Ghana. Last time who died I chose Quraysh meaning of nomadic, and the tribe, and from the tribe of greyish, Allah chose a claim of balloon hashing. And from the claim of the new hash, it's a lot from the middle hashing who did a lot of choose what sort of laughs on the love it was some of them and he is the leader of mankind, he says in a heady and a see you the will they are the
most fun. I am the master and the leader of all the children of Adam, and there is no boast
that he truly is the master of mankind. So and that's why even also can had to admit whore females all messed up, that he is a man of great pedigree ancestry and lineage amongst us.
He then says all correctly as than asked
ever said the same thing IE made the same claim as Mohammed Omar Abdullah before him?
Abu Sufyan says I said la no
So what you're actually just wanted to know is
this person stood up and Rose amongst you, and claimed to be a prophet
amongst your people? Has there ever been a history of someone claiming to be a prophet?
I was feeling sad now. There isn't. And the wisdom of this question, and the significance of also fianza answer would become clear later on in the Hadeeth, where
heraclius goes through the questions again, and goes through the answers of abuse of young and explains each answer himself.
So there was no one else who claimed Prophet, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam rose, and not only the claim of profitable what he was saying to them, no one else said it is true. What he said was immense.
What he said was immense, it was great, it was radical. It was huge.
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Today if someone tells you
don't eat this,
do eat that.
Don't do this, do that.
We become offended.
Now, imagine this in muckety muck Obama, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not rise and say to the people,
that all people
maybe you should start avoiding this,
and avoiding that. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't speak to them about food and clothes.
The first thing that he rose with ones are people shun the worship of your gods.
The first thing he said was about their gods, not about their clothes or their diets, or their tastes, or even their wealth
or their practices amongst themselves, although that did come into it later. The first thing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam rose and said was our people shun the worship of your gods? abandon the worship of your gods? That was a great message. Nobody had said that before nobody had depth
in such an open mouth there were a few individuals who shouldn't the worship
but they were unable to rise amongst their people and make a claim as great as the prophets and the law it
correctly is then set on
other human medic. So was there any King amongst his ancestors? In tala Musashi answer, I replied No.
And indeed, there was no ancestor who claimed to be a king.
The Arabs were tribal that was a tribal society.
They were tries.
They were chieftains, but even the chieftains were considered equal.
a better one could approach the chief chief than of the whole tribe, and speak to him as he wanted. Just as the better one used to come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they dispense with all the niceties and the fineries How about the alarm? They never ever proclaim the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be a king. They never addressed him. As your majesty. As your greatness, your holiness, they do not treat him like a king.
They did not give him the title of a king or an emperor or a ruler.
But this How about the love them they would speak to him, they would begin and practice their words with the phrase fedorko Obi Wan Mia or Salalah that my my father and mother be your ransom.
May they be sacrificed for your sake,
but the bedroom would come? And they would just simply say yeah, Mohammed, Mohammed
even those who eventually believed in him,
even those who believed in him, because that was their society that was them. This was their manner they were fiercely independent. And they did not believe in all this civility. That's why one of the so how about the love on him when he marched into the Royal camp.
He took his spear with him and he dragged it along, piercing all the cushions. And he spoke to
the Royal General of the society, Persian army. And he spoke to him openly he refused to bow he refused to kneel, he refused to lower his head.
Because these were the the, this is how they were. And when he left, Russia even said to his others, he said, Have you ever seen anyone more self confident, and have a greater self dignity than this man?
He didn't see it as an insult. He saw it as a sign of self worth and self dignity and self confidence. That's how the Arabs were. That's how the,
in general the Arabs were. So they did not believe in the civility and of bowing and prostrating, they just weren't like that.
betterman will come and say, yeah, Mohammed Mohammed.
So amongst them, there was no ancestor who was a king and again, the significance of this question, and its answer will become clearer later on in the Hadeeth. Then iraklia settleable Sofia on fashola from mercy at the marina Who am Rafa.
So do the nobles of the people follow him or their week one for all? So I replied, Ben Darfur, me that week, once
also known as heraclius wanted to know who are the followers of mammoth
who follows. And remember, every single question of heraclius has a purpose behind.
So he wants to know he wants to determine whether this is a true messenger of Allah or an imposter.
So he said who follows? Who are his followers? Are they the sraffa? mass, the nobility, the Gentry, the aristocracy,
the greater good
or are they the lowly humble, weak, impoverished?
So who's a fancy name meaning, the Ashraf the nobles do not follow him, but
that the lonely ones the weak one.
Here actually is carried on to the next question.
And indeed, who are the followers of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This doesn't mean that there were no noble followers. There are many nobles. But what could the alarm was an oboe,
da son, the alarm was an oval, these were all great people of our age.
And alima Vitaly, but your loved one was from the family of Hashem.
And this was again from the core of the brush.
But many of the other famous harbottle the online, and the majority they were the nobles were in the minority. The majority were
people of humble origins, foreigns, slaves, freed slaves.
The poor, the weak.
blah, blah, blah.
kebab up on Earth.
Samia and her husband the acid and there's some Mr. de la marine.
They were impoverished. They were poor, they were weak. They were captured, persecuted, taunted, and actually physically tortured and murdered.
The first martyr of Islam was some era of the alarm, the mother of remodeled near several the alarm.
There were many other Muslims, all from poor, humble, lonely families, lonely as the other soap. And this is the tradition of the people. Why?
humble people who are
people who are humble people who are poor, poor
and supposedly powerless, they remain humble.
And humility gives clarity.
Humility gives clarity.
The mind minds are clear their hearts see how loving, caring, affectionate
and sympathetic Paul
Keep along the poorest are always the most charitable. And survey after survey research after research proves the point, that the richer a person becomes the more tight fisted, the less charitable and the more stingy the person becomes. And in every society, modern
and medieval, now and before
most charity consume the lowest part of and the lowest segment of society.
Those who are poor, those who are looked down upon those who are frowned upon those who are considered worthless, they remain humble, and humility and humbleness, create clarity, clarity in vision, clarity and understanding, clarity and perception. And not just the clarity of mind, but also the clarity of heart. They are not mean spirited, they are not stingy. They are not paranoid. They are loving, caring, and affectionate.
Despite all our human weaknesses.
And conversely, the richer a person becomes wealth and power, cloud, a person's mind and judgment, and they create confusion. They cloud a person's heart.
Wealth creates rust in the heart,
wealth and power,
create confusion and the cloud a person's judgment. And I've spoken about this at great length in some of the seeds of the holy book. I won't go into all that detail here. But wealth and power, create confusion, the cloud a person's judgment, humility, creates clarity, not just of the mind, but also the heart. This is why they were always the most receptive to the message of the prophets believing was so that was always.
And it's a tradition of the MBA
that the powerful and the nobility, the rich,
the haughty and the arrogant, they rejected the profitable and the weak ones fallen.
And those who were arrogant.
They said to those who were still considered weak and oppressed,
those amongst them who believed that Do you know that Saudi has been sent by his Lord? meaning from the people of Saudi Hannah his Salaam? What was the story, the rich and the powerful?
The high and mighty, they rejected him. And they even turn to the believers, and who are the believers, the lowly, humble folk. And that was a story with all of the prophets. alayhi wa Salatu was salam, as I mentioned in my talk, on pride and arrogance on Sunday, so do refer to that I won't repeat myself here.
But it's a story of all the prophets alayhi wa Salatu was Salam. And that was the case with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in muckety muck. It was the lowly and the humble, and the simple, who with that clarity of mind, and the clarity and purity of heart, were the first to embrace the message of a sort of la sala la Valley. That's why he said, who follows them? The nobility said no, not the nobility, rather they're humble ones. Then heraclius says our ASE due
to the increase or decrease in number pulled. So we're here at Abu Sufyan said, I replied Benghazi do not name rather than increase in them.
And the Muslims were increasing slowly and surely, what I said earlier about the impoverished and the poor, being believers.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wasn't promising them wealth. Some people tried to explain away this phenomenon by saying that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a social revolutionary in the lead. That's why he promised great things, wealth, and social change, which attracted the poor, the weak and the impoverished.
oppressed lives, they saw a glimmer of hope. So he was merely a revolutionary, who gave them a false message of hope, and that's why they rallied around.
What benefit was there for the poor and impoverished to believe in Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in muckety muck.
He wasn't promising them any worldly wealth.
And they were being tortured.
What need was there for them to remain steadfast on their faith?
Once they have been tortured and murdered in the US or the alarm rang, his mother Samia or the alarm rang her. His father Amar, Yasser, the alarm rang. They had been they were a family of freed slaves to me and yes, they were both freed slaves of the banal Muslim. So even though they were freed slaves now they were free people, they were still indebted to them.
And the boom of zoom, the tribe of Hollywoodland. Waleed and his father who was a powerful person, a really dominant mahira. This was also the tribe and the clan of an organization who was better known as Abuja.
So this was the tribe of Abu Jamal and unbelievable Merida, the most powerful climb at the time.
They were the freed slaves of this clan, they still continue to treat them like slaves. And they were the ones who personally tortured them personally tortured. So me out of the Align has some Amal and his father. Yeah, several The love I mean, at that time, whilst they were being tortured, flogged, whipped, lash all over the body.
indecently assaulted in the case of Samia or the alarm, in the presence of her husband, and in the presence of
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam unfortunately wasn't in a position to physically help them at the time. And he would pass by them, and he would tell us how about the alarm and who to pass by them and say, and himself will pass by them and say, despite all of that torture, he would simply say to them sablon Yeah, they asked for in the movie The common agenda, patients or family have the answer for your promised abode his journey.
He wasn't promising them any wealth or deliverance on earth. He was saying remain patient, for your promised abode, is
what he was there for. Amar and his parents are of the language my aim to continue
even many years late,
when Mr. Mia Cerro de la Han,
reached Medina, after the Hydra, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was building the mystery.
Along with this, how about the law?
This man Amar the law has seen his own mother being killed in a very indecent manner.
It said that Abu Jamal thrust the spear through her privates.
And this is how she was killed in front of us.
And in front of her husband, then her his father died as a result of the torture. He saw both his parents being killed and tortured himself was tortured. After many years, he could have felt that all of this is a result of this man.
Rather, he did a good job with him. When he arrived in Medina. And they were building the machine.
amount of the love I was carrying double bricks, and he was covered all over
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stood by him and brushing off the dust of the body of ammount of the asset. Even then, does he promise him wealth and deliverance in the world? Is brushing him and saying to him, wait happy Mr. Alas, will be unto you or Amar, how will it be when the rebel for sure.
So this young man, he saw his parents being killed and tortured, and now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speaking to him about his own death
and prophesizing and for telling him that you will be killed by the rebel force.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not promise them any worldly goods and gifts. He only promised them gender and things of the hereafter. And yet, they believed this wasn't a social message of reform that attracted them. This was a man which is a mystery.
Despite being poor, weak and impoverished, when he man and to the hearts, nothing could shake, absolutely nothing
no one else could understand. And Heraclitus himself will explain the magical and mysterious effect of Lima
in his own analysis later.
And despite all of this, the torture, the murder, the persecution, the suppression, were they decreasing in number now wrong
They will increase. And not only that all and I'll end with this, all heraclius said earlier men who certainly Dini bad policy
to any of them
abandon the religion after entering into it, out of displeasure for the religion
out of displeasure for the religion called Allah. I said to him now
no one and that was true, despite everything.
That's how about the Allahu anhu would not leave their religion.
Despite the torture, the murder, the persecution, the suppression
despite the impoverishment, they love so much that they would not leave their religion out of displeasure for the religion.
Gain there are many more questions and
many answers that Eve continues, but inshallah we will continue with the remainder next week. I'll pause here, may Allah subhanho wa Taala enable us to understand what's the law what's the what a solid navy and I'm home at the age of 18 a lot more
land, the federal government will be like to continue to come inviter. There's also the Hadeeth is very interesting. The heraclius his analysis is even more insightful, and more interesting than just the answers of a boss of yarn at the time. So his questions were very sharp and to the point. And his analysis of abuse of yams answers were very revealing, and a lot more happened and he said a lot more. Through this we learn about the profits from the lining, some of them we learn about the early Muslims, we learn about this habit of the law.
We learn about their faith, and maybe they're in we can find some inspiration.
