When I was in
the Marine army
want to shadow in Lahore would actually
to hold a sword. So the law
my bag and farm ministry planner Virginian son
in law her woman who is alone,
Young Living in
southern Italy he was suddenly
a law who was suddenly
spectrum listeners, we gather for the
the commentary of the famous heavies from say global harm known as a lethal heraclius.
I won't provide a summary of what we've covered so far. Rather than what I'll do is I'll quickly translate the heading from the beginning. And that will
familiarize us once again with the actual story.
Can we keep paying records admiration from Abdullah members of the Law Firm.
I'm delighted my boss of the elaborate mass saves, that I've also fiam informed him that heraclius sent for him
amongst a group of amongst a caravan of the auto age.
And they were traders inshallah,
during that period,
in which prophets lies messenger, sallallahu alayhi, WA, some of them had agreed a truce with Sophia and the unbelievers of the fish.
So they came to him
once they were in Italia, which means Jerusalem.
So he summoned them,
to his gathering. And around him where the dignitaries of Rome.
He then called them and call for his translator,
and then said, Who of you is the closest and lineage to this man who claims to be who claims that he is a prophet? So I was with him said,
I told him that I'm the closest of the meaning of the caravan to this moment in lineage. So heraclius said, Bring him close to me, and draw his companions closer to and then place them behind him. And he told his interpreter saves told them, that I am about questioning this man, meaning I'm also firm, about this man, meaning, the one who claims to be a prophet. So if he also herein lies to me, then you reject Him. So also fiance's By Allah, if it wasn't for the shame, that they would quote, a lie from me, I would have surely lied against him, meaning the messengers on the library.
the first of what he asked me was that he said,
How is his lineage amongst you? His pedigree, his ancestry?
I said, he is amongst us a man of great lineage. So he replied heraclius Rockland that has anyone
ever said the same thing before him.
So also fields that are applied now correctly as then asked
where any of his ancestors came?
So also fiam said no
heraclius then and so do the
nobility follow him or the week amongst the people.
So I replied name their week
to heraclius then asked Do they increase the number or do they decrease as a name rather than increase?
This is where we stopped last week. So as you as you know,
as I'm also a fan of the alarm saves, that during that period, where in the truce was agreed, in fact that the beginning part of that period, maybe the late 60s 60, or hedra, or the early part of the seventh year of hedger. Also,
taking advantage of that truce, he took a large caravan of approximately 30 traders to shine. And they were in the port city of Gaza at the time,
engage in trade. Prior to this heraclius had come to Jerusalem on a pilgrimage in order to pay homage and to show gratitude to God for having granted him victory over the society Persians, with whom the Byzantine Roman Empire of who of which were correctly as was the current Emperor had been engaged in centuries of warfare actually on and off. And recently, there have been about a very intense and severe fighting, in which heraclius the Byzantines under the leadership of heraclius had suffered many defeats, and then the tables were turned, and eventually they became victorious over the Persians. So in order to pay homage and show gratitude to God, he had made a pilgrimage on foot
There he had received news of the profits of the law legal system from the Sun King who was his vassal, and ally. And then further to that He also received the letter from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam inviting him to Islam.
heraclius read the letter.
And having read the letter, he wish to inquire further about this, about the prophets in the law, legal some of them. So it was then that he told his soldiers to send out search parties all over the kingdom, all over the Byzantine Roman Empire to
see if they could find anyone who was of the same people, and who had more information about this person who claimed Prophethood so this is when his soldiers arrived in Gaza and found Sophia under the trade caravan, they hold them back to Jerusalem. There they were seated before heraclius and he began
interrogating all Sophia.
Now do remember at the time heraclius what was at the zenith of his power, he was the most powerful ruler in the known world at the time. Although certainly Persian Empire
and the end, the Byzantine Roman Empire were considered the two superpowers at the time.
As of late just recently, heraclius had proved to be victorious and he had vanquished the society Persians. So he was the undisputed
mighty ruler of the most powerful empire in the known world at the time. So also fionn was summoned before him seated, and he was interrogated by heraclius. About the prophets in the light, it was something you're actually as asked him 10 questions in total,
and five of them we covered last week. And the five which he asked were that what is his lineage emotionally? How is his lineage? And then he carried on we will go over the questions again, because they will come in the reply and the analysis of heraclius so the last question, the fifth one where we left off was, he said to also have yarn that the followers of this man, do they increase in number or or do they decrease? So he said Navy rather than increase? Also fiam Nast?
todo admin who certainly Dini Baraka caleffi
to any of them, meaning the followers of this person, this came to profitted. Do any of them
abandon their religion,
after having entered into it and embraced it?
out of displeasure,
So, also fans of I replied law now on. So heraclius said
that the honeymoon will be located
in your Buddha bar.
So, would you ever accuse him
Before he said, Whatever he said. So that was a seventh question. The question was, do any of them
once they've embraced the religion and entered into it, Islam? Do any of them abandon their religion?
out of spines, out of displeasure, or becoming disgruntled and disillusioned?
So obviously the answer none. And indeed, that was the case. That's how battle the alarm rang in muckety muck,
despite all the troubles they face, despite the persecution, even the physical torture,
the verbal emotional and physical abuse, and sometimes even mad
as How about however, the law
remains steadfast despite the fact that one they will have the
lower class, most of them because his question that do the nobility follow this man, or the weak ones, so also can said the weak ones, and as I explained last week, this was as far as the majority was concerned. Otherwise, there were people of the nobility, the leading members of the Quraysh Abubakar, the law firm,
and you cannot be clouded by the Allahumma drain. And these were all early believers and apart from them, there were many of the leading nobles of Quraysh. But they were in a minority, the wealthy the affluence, the well off the powerful the aristocracy in the nobility as they regard themselves on the major parts as a majority. They were the principal opponents of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and unexplained more about this later. So despite being of the weaker class, they were the most steadfast. And even though they were persecuted torture, and some of them were even mad, as I explained about the family of Ameren, the asset or the lahori.
Despite all of this, they remained steadfast on their religion.
none of them ever became disillusioned.
Even amount of the asset or the alarm
panel Ah, he, he was tortured, and he had witnessed his father and mother being killed. And under torture. He told them what they wanted to hear.
They then released
a merciful the law and was utterly destroyed.
And in a moment of weakness, as he saw it, in a moment of weakness under immense pressure, and the physical torture, after having witnessed the torture of his own parents, he uttered words, which
they saw as a victory, and which suggested that he wasn't.
He was no longer a member of the Muslim community, in our longer believed as he should believe. But he said that in pressure and the physical torture, and he instantly repented and regretted, and it was under compulsion, but he was utterly distraught. He sought the province of the law, legal systems forgiveness, this How about the love and whose forgiveness but last quarter Allah revealed verses of the
11 awkward How can we
accept one who is compelled, but even under compulsion, or
a man, his heart is content with faith? So Mr. Mercer the law was that was overlooked.
So even under torture and pressure, they did not become disillusioned with their newfound faith. And as I said, I'll say more about us more about this later.
Then heraclius asked of all Sofia, that would any of you
accuse this man meaning the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of lying
ever before? Did you ever accuse him of lying before? He said what he said
So Abu Sufyan said now, I replied No. And indeed, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was known to his people. He was known as an amine. And this is widely reported this isn't a single report or an isolated report Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was regarded as a solid amine, the truthful, the honest and the trustworthy.
We covered in the commentary of the heavy the
virtually all the Muslims have left, and this was 13 years after Prophethood.
The only people who remain behind were the most of the oppressed weak ones, those who had no kin no family, no means no support and no ability to me crepes. There were some
and the only other ones who are capable of doing hedger of emigrating but have not yet embarked on that journey. Where a worker study for the law firm and the profits of the law Heidi who are some of them, and members of their family,
the family of abubaker of the law home and the family of the prophets in the law,
they were the only ones who hadn't done his job. And then even when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, under great pressure, fearing for his life, he secretly left
in the company of abubaker of the law firm. He gave instructions to earlier the law and to remain behind and to ensure that all the items of trust that were deposited by the people of Makkah, with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they were safely returned to their house.
And that was when his own life was at risk.
So even after Islam, though the nobility oppose the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Others may not have accepted his faith, they didn't believe in him. They didn't accept his message, but they still trusted him as an individual in worldly terms, and they continue to deposit their items of trust with him. And true to his honesty and his integrity, the sort of laughs and the love it was in them even when facing personal danger and the risk of death, he ensured that those items of trust will return to them. And that was 13 years after he declared profitted, but prior to his declaring profitted, universe, without exception, all the people of
leaders and laity alike young and old, men and women, the powerful and the weak, the rich and the poor, all of them regarding the proper similarity will send them in a very unique man. They, they believed him to be a solid, the truthful Ameen, the trustworthy, and
five years before Prophethood.
Five years before, announcing Prophethood
in the 35th year of his life,
the carrabba had become damaged because of
excessive rain, and a flood stone.
foundations have become damaged and the foundations have become weak, the walls were about to collapse. So the parish agreed amongst themselves to rebuild the garden.
But they were very fearful. Eventually they
rebuilt it. They ensured
and they had a packed spike there rivalries that we will collectively build the gamma they're considered it's a thing of honor. Furthermore, they said we will only build the Kava out of our halaal
even though they were pagans,
they, to some degree, recognized and guarded the saints see of the house of Allah. So this is only our Hello income will be used to rebuild the character. This is one that funds fell short.
When their funds fell short. They were unable to reconstruct the garba on its original foundations because had reduced the walls and the entire building to its foundations. So the karma was actually a rectangular rather than a cube.
So they built the house short because of the lack of phones and they marked out the bro
parts are the remaining parts of the character with
a level wall. And with other markings, it was a semi circle, which they then regarded as the healthy.
And one of the meanings of happiness is the broken one.
It's happy in the modern,
very modern ama for all for those of you who are students of Arabic. So happy means a broken one. So that was the broken section of the Ganga.
That's how they built it because they fell short of funds. And they also made some other changes, there was a door, which was lower, there was a door for entry and a door for exit opposite ends, and both of them were lowered to the ground. But after that point, what they did is they raise the door of the gather, and they
sealed one door. So there was a same door for entry and for exits, and it was raised high above the ground, so that they could control whom they were allowed to enter the garba.
And who they would prevent. So they made these changes are sort of last alarm rally, or some of them intended to rebuild the garba on the foundations of Satan Ebrahim alayhis salam, he told me in a shadow of the Alabama
that if it wasn't for the facts,
on an Omega symbol, Jay Z Howdy.
Howdy, so Adam vilja here, if it wasn't for the fact that they're your people, meaning the bridge,
are so close to their days of jargony, meaning they have only recently embraced Islam, this is something they will not be able to tolerate. If it wasn't for that fear. I would rebuild the garba on the foundations of Ibrahim alayhis salam, but he did Pamela. Look at the wisdom of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it was his desire to rebuild the Kava in the manner that existed before and on the foundations of seeing them at the center. And that meant extending it so that it covered the happiness part and it was once again rectangular, which the British were unable to do because of the lack of funds, hello, and pure phones. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam intended to
lower the door again, have one for entry and reopen the other door again at ground level for excellence. But he didn't. Because he feared the reaction of the Quraysh not all of them, but some of them who had only recently left Jaya helia and entered into Islam. After the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away the
underlined mazovia or the Allahu and
proximately well over half a century later,
he decided when he was in control of Makoto macabre, he was the son of smoking tobacco de la vie and he was the nephew of Chateau de la jolla, who is the narrator of this Hadith, and to whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this so I'm delighted was available, the alarm rang, the son of a smart buck and the son of availible.
I'm delighted was available, the alarm rang when he was in control of muckety muck Obama. And he was declared the halifa of not just the regional America but other regions. He rebuilt he raised he built the caravan according to the wishes of Rasulullah sallallahu. It was the Boo mania, the Romanians, who regarded Abdullah Abu Zubaydah the alarm as a rebel, and they fought against him, they said, laid siege to Makkah, they, because in during their siege, they even damage the garba. And they eventually captured Abdullah who was available, the alarm rang, and he was brutally killed. So when the alarm rang, then the blue mania merely out of sponsz. Since they did not want the same
caliber that Abdullah was available, the alarm rang, whom they regarded as a rebel.
They raised it to the ground and rebuilt it in the manner of the brush.
Then, after the ban omiya when the Armenians
were removed from power, approximately after one third well, approximately 130 years after Hitler. This was another over another half century after the rebuilding of the gabbeh of
the media. The media was never removed from power the blue bus they came to power their buses. So the bus of holophone when they were in full control and they have consolidated their power over the expensive
Islamic realm, the whole affair the leaves of the ambassade Empire. They also intended to rebuild the gamba, according to the wishes of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and they wish to undo what Ben omiya did. So may Allah have mercy on the aroma of Islam.
Allah advise the lambaste the basil hollowfibre and prominence amongst them was the students and the companion of Emmanuel hanifa Rahim Allah, Amanda will use of the law Haley, who was the first Chief Judge of Islam, and he advised the Holy Father do not rebuild the carrabba leave it as it is. And his argument was that if you do it, if you rebuild the gamma, and you undo what the Armenians did, then what will happen is that the Kava will become a plaything in the hands of the rulers. Every time a new ruler comes merely out of spite and to undo what the previous rulers and emperors or dynasties had done, they will continue to change the Kava, it will become a plaything in the hands
of the rulers. So now, since a carrabba is as it was at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And if he was contented with it, why don't you just leave it This is why the current position and the building and structure of the Kava is as it was during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In any case, before that it was different. So in the 35th, year of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his life when the Gabba was damaged, and they they raised the walls and rebuilt it from their hallowen income. This is why they fell short.
When the garba was complete,
of course, leaving aside the theme area, the arrange, now decided to the final thing remain. There was a final part of the construction, which was the restitution of the hedgerows,
and since that was considered the holiest part of the gamma, the range. They fought amongst themselves. So they were bitter rivals, their different clans were rivals as it was that they had come together and agree the pact in order to rebuild the gamba. But now since the construction was complete, and the one great thing of distinction and honor remained, which is to restore and replace the original s with the Blackstone, in the corner. Every clan wanted that privilege and honor. And they fell out again with one another they began squabbling, quarreling, arguing, and
it became so serious that there was a danger. In fact, they swore alliances against each other. And then once again became divided to such a degree, that they even get their hands and blood to draw pacts amongst themselves that we will fight against you, we will align ourselves with this plan, and we will battle against you. So there was a threat of battle
in order to enjoy and gain the privilege of restoring the swept to the garba. So in order to avoid conflict,
a solution was suggested, which is that lets us all wait to see who the first person is who enters the machine.
First Person who enters his machine, we will make him the judge an arbitrator in this district. It was random. It was quite random. They all agreed. And the danger was that no matter who came if there were so many clowns, if the person who first into the mystery that Mr. Heron
was not pleasing or satisfactory to any one clan, they would have dissented and they would have never been able to settle on the person. Because the danger was
that it was considered impossible for all of them to agree on one person, but they actually they at least accepted the nominal solution. So they waited the first person to enter the machine after this agreement of theirs was none other than the profits on the line equals. And this was five years before he declared profits.
They will all contempt or since they knew his honesty, his trustworthiness, his integrity, his character,
his inner and outer beauty. So they all accepted and what was the solution of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he could have said
that let me
replace the vegetal s with myself. Since you've all chosen me, let me place it. Nobody else needs to squabble if I say
to one person, one claim, you do it, the others will still hold it against each other. So what was the solution of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam Did he say I will
restore the original s with myself now. This was one of his unique abilities. He was a reconciler. He brought people's hearts together. He bought he he brought squabbling, quarreling, warring clans and tribes together.
As a last as of him, for the man with him in a law he, Linda,
that it is of a mercy from Allah.
It says, have a compassion and mercy in you from Allah, that you were soft.
And you were lenient towards them. As I mentioned before, Lin the loving is an Arabic word which comes from Lana Yelena, which means to become soft and lenient. But this particular phrase, Linda Levin, is very similar to the word you were lenient for them. So
it was, he had this unique ability. Even if there were four people, all of them disagreed, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would not only settle the disagreement, but he had this miraculous ability to make everybody contend to,
in a judgment, two people can squabbling with each other quarrel, the judge is in a very difficult position.
He's on the edge of a knife.
Even if he looking at the facts.
He is honest, truthful, upright, and he judges according to the facts, and he judges truthfully and correctly and passes judgment. One will be the winner, the other will be the loser. And that loser unless he is clean of character and hearts, will feel that bitterness and will harbor resentment, continued resentment against his adversary. But he may even have a new resentment against the church.
But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had this unique ability to conclude the matter, to pass judgment, to even decide in favor of one person and against the others. But all the others would walk away contented happy, because of what he would say to them, or the novel solution that he would come up with. So on this occasion to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, that bring me a large sheet. So they brought him a large sheet, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told all of them to grab
parts of the edge edges of the sheet. So all the chieftains of the clans,
grabbed parts of each sheet at the edges, and then the profits of the love it was one of them, plays the original estimate in the middle, and then he told all of them to carry the sheet together, all the way up to the corner of the gather. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam rightfully with his noble hands, he restored the password to the
and everyone was content. I relate the story because again shows how the people view the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam them and how they recognize his truthfulness, his honesty, his character, his integrity, throughout his life before profited, and this incidence was only five years before profit. This is why, when the representative of the Persian Emperor,
he spoke to unrelatable Sharma hold the alarm, one of the things which are mohila to Musharraf out of the lava and said to him once, and this is unique, the same thing was said to all three emperors.
So Mohit Sharma heard the alarm when he said to the representative of the Persian Emperor, describing the prophets of the love, I think was one of them, that
Allah centers a messenger
whose truthfulness whose lineage and whose trustworthiness we were all well aware of.
Jaffa would not be the brother of the alarm when he led the group of Muslims to take refuge in Abyssinia.
And there they spoke to him the joshy
and the operation sent us to collect them and bring them back.
And the joshy said that I will listen to both sides. The ambassador's of the British political class and I would also listen to the Muslim see what they have to say
Mass was regarded as the here, meaning a genius, a political genius. And he was very eloquent, well versed, and the Sahaba of the alarm who were fearful that through his persuasive arguments and his political acumen, he would be able to convince the judge of his case and the case of the bridge, for whom he will he came as an ambassador. And as a result, and modjadji would revoke the refugee status of the Sahaba of the Ummah home and send them back in chains with the British delegation. So they were fearful of this. But when
Alice had made his
argument, this habit of the alarm went from selected jafra mother, to speak on their behalf. And he spoke so beautifully and eloquently. And he actually began with the words that we were a people he described as nation, he described his people his phone, and then he said, exactly the same thing. Then Allah sent us a messenger, who's not ready for NASA, who was a who was a man. He said exactly what he did when the Chava said many years later, Allah sent as a messenger whose truthfulness and whose lineage and whose trustworthiness we were well aware of.
And here actually is being an intelligent ruler and a devout Christian with knowledge of the Scripture. He specifically asked of all Sophia, what what How is his lineage amongst you? And he asked this question very intelligently. Did any of you ever accuse this man of law
before he said what he said, so Abu Sufyan, despite being his enemy, he said no.
heraclius then said,
Does he deceive
altana? Abu sufian replied that No, he doesn't see.
Then abuse of young
realized and seized an opportunity to detract from the profits and the love it was the mums image, and to sneak in
a few words, that would plant a seed of doubt in the mind of heraclius.
So he said, he was asked by heraclius, does he deceive? So I said, No, he doesn't deceive. But then he quickly added
when the human hoof him would learn another email who afar?
However, he said to heraclius No, he doesn't deceive. Well, the words Where does he deceive? So also Sam said no. However, he quickly added, we are at the moment in a truce with him.
But we do not know what he will do in this truce. And in one narration of it although it's not in this particular Hadees but it's elsewhere in Buhari, he said, we do not know whether he may prove to be deceitful or not, but that he may deceive.
Iraqi has heard what was on set, but then he carried on and also from ads on he said, what I'm doing kidney Kadima, he has Shea
russophone added that I was not able to add any word.
And in one narration, with which I could detract from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I could not add any word other than this. This was the only thing that I could add. And he says in another narration, I could not add any word with which I detracted from the image of
prophets, Allah, Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and which I feared would not harm me, even if my people quoted me.
If my companions are 30 or so, if they went away, and they told anyone else that look, john didn't lie. But he didn't say this about Mohammed, that he doesn't deceive. But we are in a period of truce with him. And we do not know what he will do in this truth. Maybe him Maybe he'll deceive. So also farmers content, that that word would not harm his status. People wouldn't hold that against them. They would
never hold it against him if he lied, but not if he planted a seed of doubt in that manner.
solusvm says I told Paraclete so he doesn't deceive, but I wasn't able to. But we do not know what he will do during this truce. And I wasn't able to
surreptitiously enter a single word in our discussion with which I could harm the profits except this word on that
heraclius said, the hell out of the moon. So have you fought? Have you battled with him?
although none of us have said, I said, Yes. Our heraclius then said, okay for Ghana.
So how was your fight with him?
So I replied, I said, Well, how have you been and now available?
You know, I mean, now when another woman
war between us
inflict loss on him, and he inflicts loss on us. So jaal, which are translated as alternating
somehow means a bucket
or in the manner of a bucket. So jar means in the manner of buckets.
And in one duration, it's actually safer than one.
Which means, again, a buckets were in the manner of a bucket. How is that the arrows had this phrase, if you imagine a well.
So people would
converge on the well to draw water. And the world would have a bucket, which they would lower by a rope and then pull up and draw water. So if there was only one bucket, as would normally be the case, a large pail, the others were patiently waiting.
And then when one person is finished drawing his water,
he would, then the other person will be waiting on the other side, he would then swing the buckets,
which is tied to the
post above the well, you would swing the bucket and pass it on courteously to the other person saying I finished is your turn. So the bucket would be swung, and the other person would grab the bucket draw water, and then others would be waiting when he or she had finished, then they would swing the bucket back to the other person. So this act of swinging from one person to the other, the Arabs, they began using this phrase, to denote alternation. So if, and that's why the last panel with Allah also says in the Quran, with DeLuca yamano de willowherb in us, and nada willowherb.
The word muda will come from ww muda Wellington, which also comes from though
So it means to alternate. Some of you may say, Well, the word is that whether you da, da, da da, da. So the work was in between, but in the one comes at the end. So how can they be from the same word, this is for the students of Arabic.
Just like that one comes from waka up with biotin and taqwa should be double that again this so you've got the Aqua this bulb in the office.
So within a Yamanaka, we do have a nurse these are days which we alternate between the meaning that's life. A lot has original sides. And these are days that we alternate between the people. empires rise and fall.
There's only one constant in the universe which is change, life comes and then death arrives, that is life and death. That is night and day. There is a rise and fall in people's lives. That there is there are moments of sadness and joy there are, there is loss, and there is game. That's the nature of the world. That's the nature of the universe, in an individual's life as well as in the life of nations. So empires rise and fall people are victorious and then defeated. People vanquish others and then are vanquished themselves, entire nations and empires disappear.
People come and go, this is the ebb and flow of the lives of individuals and nations on Earth. With Tilikum Yamanaka, we don't have a NASS these are days that we alternate amongst the people. So one day a loss for you the next day, a victory one day a victory for you and then a loss fee. So there is nothing permanent in the world. The only abode of permanence is the life in the hair after
a figment. The phone will have
what so prophets of Allah will you die and they will live on
forever. Every soul shall taste death.
So this is a rule of life on Earth. So within Kala Yama that we don't have a Masters alternation, these are days that we alternate. So though and sedan, or both of these terms refer to
the bucket. So that's where it comes from the swinging of the bucket over well. And the Arabs began using this to simply refer to alternation. So also, Yan said, you're actually aceptar him, Have you fought? He said, Yes, we have fought. So how was your fighting with him? So he said, horrible, baneasa job, war between us as alternating it's like a bucket. You know? I mean, we're not the enemy now and another man. He inflicts losses on those losses on him. Why did the lucianne say that? This was after the Treaty of the adea. The Congress of mcca still hadn't happened. And this was in the late part of the six year or seventh year of hedra. Prior to this conversation, apart from the
military expeditions and the small excursions, that many battles have been fought between the operation of Makkah and the Muslims of Medina, were three, the Battle of Babel in the second year of hedra, in which the Muslim scored a decisive victory, then the Battle of offered, within which initially the Muslim scored a victory, and the British retreated from the battlefield or began their retreats. But suddenly, the tide was turned with interventional hardware, either the alarm and because of a strategic error on the part of some of the Muslims who failed to fulfill the command and the instruction of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to the lexer. Because of that
strategic error, and because of that intervention, that hollywood movie, as a result of that error, the time was termed the Muslims suffered huge losses. And in that way, the battle ended. Many consider the Battle of offered just to be a victory of massage for the Muslims. Others consider it a kind of stalemate at the end. But undoubtedly, many Muslims were martyred and many Muslims were injured. In fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself was injured. And after the battle ended, Abu Sufyan who was a leader in the Battle of better in the Battle of word, he shouted out that this day for the day of battle, meaning this is our day of in retaliation for the day of birth.
And then after the Battle of the third year of Hitler, the battle between race we're not talking about what happened in Medina between the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam, the Muslims and the other tribes were speaking about the grace of Mecca and the Muslims of Medina. The next major battle that took place was in the fifth year of hedger, which was a campaign of the trench. A pitch battle never took place because of the defenses. But there were many attempts to breach the defenses. And the Muslims were defending in those attempted breaches of the defense. Some Muslims were martyred very few according some narrations, only six Muslims. And similarly, a handful of the British were
also killed. So there were losses on both sides, minimum losses, but there was great suffering because the campaign dragged down it was winning, it was bitterly cold. And eventually, the British and their allies just broke campaign left. So that again, that there was no victory for the race on that occasion, and both sides suffered some losses. So this is what also
relates to heraclius that so far our state of war with Mohammed, some of the lavalley, who seldom is one of alternation, we both suffered losses, but hitherto there has been no decisive victory for any one party. This is why they eventually ended up agreeing a truce in the 16th hedger and the truce was that for Sep 10 years, we will lay down our arms
on heraclius then asked Matt a model, what does he command you to do? I said, You're cool. He says, We would love to
walk through Kuma poo.
We are more than happy to sit.
You say so heraclius said Mother. What does he command you to do? I replied, you're cool. He says, obey the law. Why?
worship Allah, Allah.
This was the first thing
what he said
and do not associate partners or do not associate anything with him in partnership.
Indeed, this was the first and primary message of the prophets on the line
that worship Allah.
But immediately he added without publication, and do not associate anything with law.
He didn't just say worship of
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, as isn't,
throughout, in different ways, as mentioned, that it's not just the worship of Allah, which is the finances, but it's the worship of Allah with the way the worship of Allah with monotheism, the worship of Allah without any association, the worship of Allah with the disassociation of other rivals, idols and equals to Allah subhanho wa.
So why would Allah, Allah and worship Allah or Mandala worship Allah alone, what are they, and do not
associate anything with him, because even the pagan Arabs even arrange, they worship the last round of water, they recognize a lot to be the supreme god. So in that pantheon of gods in the hierarchy of gods, the last panel with data in their view, occupied the highest position. And there were other gods and goddesses that they worshipped. But even then they protested that we are only worshipping them man, our mobile ilario or Ramona Eliza, we do not worship them except so that they may draw us closer to Allah. And if ever as a mass as an insult, the human Hello personality, one rule of law, if you ask them, a messenger of Allah, who created the heavens and the earth, they will most
assuredly say Allah. So they recognize Allah as the harlot peraza, as the creator, the Sustainer, the ultimate provider, the greatest Scott, they recognized that they even recognized the term Allahu Akbar, Allah is the Greatest.
And that's why they call these goddesses last resort and not the daughters of Allah subhanho wa.
even the British worshipped the last panel, that wasn't the message of the prophets and the love, it was the lamb that just worship Allah, his message was worship Allah
And do not associate anything with.
And sure, partnership should have means partnership.
Even more than Association should have actually means partnership.
And when a person worships or last chrome or with Allah, and worship something or someone else, and it's not just worship, it's not about frustration, or bowing, or prayer and supplication, anything which is reserved for last Hannibal with that,
to develop that which is reserved for Allah, to offer that which is reserved for Allah, to divert that which is reserved for Allah to anything or anyone else, means to make that thing or that person, that individual or that group of individuals, equals to Allah rivals to Allah and partners to Allah Subhana Allah that in that devotion
in that offer.
And the last panel with Allah does not accept partnership
allows, worship is exclusive and entire for Allah. That's why he says in a heartbeat, and the oven is shorter guy.
He says, of all the partners,
I'm the most independent of all the partners of any partnership.
And then the he continues,
the whoever does a deed
and then he associates a partner with me in that deed,
I abandon him and I abandon his partnership.
So Allah subhanho wa tada does not accept any intention or any worship or any offering or any devotion
even 99% it has to be exclusive for Allah subhanho wa Taala. If someone makes their knifes
a partner to Allah, if someone makes something else or someone else a partner to Allah, even for a minute percentage, then it's as though they have made that person or that thing a partner for parts of it and for the rest of last panel without a lot exceptional partnership. This is the original meaning
have shared, shared, of course later the secondary meaning is polytheism paganism. The meaning of ship is idolatry. But that's not the original meaning of ship, ship simply means partnership.
even have Sophia and recognized that the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the first and foremost message even before he speaks about truthfulness, and honesty and character and charity and prayer, and chastity
and good manners even before anything else, also fion was the first to say that, and the first thing he said was, he commands us to do what are your the law
will have to show publication
that worship Allah
alone, and do not associate anything with a last round of water on us apart.
And in fact, this was a message of all the MBR and he was Salah.
And time and time again the first message of the prophets was
Yeah, comida de la Malika Manila Himalaya, Oman people worship Allah, but it wasn't just worship Allah. Immediately the prophets added Malika Manila, do you have no God besides.
Then Lucien said that he commands us to worship a lot alone and do not associate any partner with him. What through Puma puto Abba, and abandon what your forefathers would say.
And what would their forefathers say?
the worship of idols.
And this was a huge thing.
This is why the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was so courageous. He told the British who pride themselves on the ways of their forefathers, we may not fully understand this phrase the ways of our forefathers, especially in this day and age.
even though they were pagans, they revealed their elders,
the baby non Muslims, they may have been in the days of ignorance.
But they respected their parents they revealed their parents, they fear their parents.
Many of the young nobles of Makkah,
when they embraced Islam, even though they were from prominent noble families, their own father's punishment in their adulthood, and this was unbelievable.
An adult son
was being physically imprisoned and shackled or even beaten by one's own father, and nobody dared intervene. I'm not suggesting that such behavior is to be condoned. I'm only giving you an example of how the orange despite their paganism, despite being in the days of Jay Hillier,
to what degree they looked upon their fathers and their forefathers, they reveal
and nobody would intervene. And even if they didn't physically punish,
an adult son still revealed the Father. If the father said do this, he would obey if the father prevented them.
And that's why they're detachment from their parents. And they're embracing Islam, despite the pressure of their families, and despite the expectation of their parents was so close. So radical, so huge, such a great move.
why he was so decisive, and why it was so remarkable in itself.
It wasn't a question of the sun came home one day and said, there is a man who claims to be a prophet. And this is what he says, I think what he is saying is good. I'm embracing I believe in him. And the father says, Man,
good for you. And very happy for you. It's your life. It's your opinion. It's your heart. It's your faith. No, it's the sun, they will first of all keep that they would conceal their faith. And if ever the parents found out, if the father found out they would fear them, that would drag them they would free home.
And we're not talking about teenagers. We're talking about adults with children themselves.
I mentioned earlier about some time ago about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
that he had so many uncle's
and his grandfather absolutely had a huge number of sons.
And he was a leader of MK at the time.
And even though the sons recognize that our Father,
you see the cleanse,
arrange, were divided into clans, and but who Hashem was the most prominent clan at the time because of the leadership of Adam Putnam. He was regarding the shape of brush. The elderly men of courage, the leader of the branch. So the sons never thought that our father is the chief of all the trends of Quraysh. And we are honored clan, and we are 10 brothers.
We can do what we want, we can behave how we want Abu Talib, despite being old, and despite his sons being adults with children for themselves, they would sit around him respectfully, in the shade of the gamma, he would lean against the carrabba on the couch and bedding. And his sons would sit in front of him in a semicircle, and they would sit humbly and respectfully.
And he was an old grandfather. He was an old man. And the words are nobody, nobody, not even amongst the children, not even amongst the sons would dare to sit on the bedding and the couch of abdomen. That was his throne.
Except for a suit of law, and the law it was some of them as a child who would come and sit there. And his uncle tried to shoo him away, saying don't sit in their abdomen, but he would he would turn to his son, his grandson the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam caressing stroke him, bring him closer and say to them, leave him for the son of mine will have a great state in the future.
So that was considered unique, the only the province of the law it was an honor and privilege of sitting on the cushion of abdomen. But the points which I wish to make is see how his sons treated him. They dreaded two sets one is
and they were they were still in the days of Jerry Lee. Allah.
Parents were revered grandparents were revered forefathers were revered. This is why throughout the book, the phrases are, why should we abandon what our forefathers have said, not just for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, but also for the previous nations, every nation has had this tradition of respecting of revering of honoring their parents, their forefathers and their ancestors,
and their ways and tradition. This is why it was such a great thing for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to actually say to them, what the hoopoe may
abandon what your forefathers used to say.
That was huge.
But he said that, and so also fiam said to them, said to heraclius, that this is what he says, well, Roku may have come and abandoned what your forefathers say that specifically about idolatry. We're only a few words left. We're more on our dishonor. And he said he added and he instructs us to prayer, the kind of prayer that we know will sit and truthfulness will affirm and chastity
bonding the ties of blood and kinship.
And these were things which they recognized this habit of the alarm rang, who recognize the beauty of these teachings, truthfulness, of prayer
charity in another generation, the words are of charity
of chastity, what chastity
abstention from anything which is her arm, and not just anything which is her arm. The word in Arabic means abstention from dishonorable thing.
So not just from that, which is forbidden, but from anything, which may be unclear, forbidden or not forbidden, which may be doubtful or which may actually be lawful, but which is dishonor.
So far, although one of the meanings is chastity, a better word would be abstention. So he commands us to abstention of sanction from what anything which is unchanged, anything which is dishonorable anything which is unaware of
anything which is unseemly. He commands us to abstain from such unseemly, dishonorable and lawful things, and or Silla. He commands us to practice syllable regime, which is bonding the ties of blood bonding,
the ties of kinship, and again, this is one of the core central
teachings of Islam, honoring and respecting one's family members of one's family.
It's such a great thing.
And this is one of the beautiful teachings of Islam. And you will find that even those who may not necessarily pray for
those who may not necessarily fast, those who may not necessarily fulfill all the obligations of religion, the beauty of the teachings of kin, family, blood, and a little rain has trickled down and has filtered down into the culture of the Muslims. Family plays such a huge part.
I recently read an article about an individual who
rather than give that example, it was an article about an individual who made a comment about what he saw in Muslims. So rather than give that example,
let me just say, not just one individual, but many have commented on the culture of Muslim families. Families are a tight knit group, how families look after each have families care for each other.
And that is a tradition of Islam.
And ciliata Rahim Allah, I've given the example of one of my father's teachers, which I still find remarkable and, and my father's teacher, he was a teacher in India, but he resided here. And my father, both my father and his teacher have passed away, may Allah have mercy on them both. My father told me by that time his teacher had passed away, but he gave me an example of symptoms.
And he said that
this teacher of mine, his Sis, sorry, teacher of mine, a family member had
as a traditional in culture, his daughters had married into the family. So they were married to their cousin's. And both his daughters were divorced by this teachers by the scholars, nephews. So the scholars, daughters were married to the nephews.
Both daughters were divorced by the nephews.
Then, since he was here,
after having divorced his daughters, they out of spite, also claimed all the land and properties that were owned, there were minimal, but any land that he had inherited, or that was his rightful property, was all confiscated, and taken over and illegally possessed
by the same nephews, and their parents,
and family members. And they abuse them.
As you're aware, what happens in situations such as this,
Father says, remarkably, every year in Ramallah,
my teacher would send money to these family members.
So I said to him in shock, my father related to him and I said to him in strong, that they've divorced your daughters, they've broken your family, they've illegally taken possession of your lands and property. They've abused you harmed you slammed you in every way. They left no stone unturned in hurting and harming you. Why do you wish to send them money? They've taken all your other wealth anyway.
He would send it as a as a gift in number of armed he would send it to other family members, they would send it to them as well. So his reply was that what they have done to me, is between them and not law, but I still have a duty to practice.
And that's why it's mentioned in the heavy This is a beautiful example of the idea in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says Lisa noir should have been more careful.
He said the ones that have been more careful.
The Key of family times is not the reciprocate, keep a family ties is not the reciprocate.
the key of family ties is one who when his family ties are set
He joins them
to reciprocate is not suitable.
So if an uncle of mine or a family member of mine
is good to me, I'm good to him.
If he's nice to me, I'm nice to him.
If he gives me something, I give him something. So all I'm doing is repaying all I'm doing is reciprocating, all I'm doing is reflecting his behavior. If he's good, I'm good. If he's nice, I'm nice. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, someone who merely reciprocate someone who merely reflects someone who does like for like,
he is not the key part family times.
He is not the one who practices silica.
The one who truly practices silica
is that when other family members cut their ties and sever their cords, he joins
he is a practice of symmetry. And this is something which is part of our religion, and should be part of our culture. And it was, it was
till recently a lot, but you will see, you will see people looking after their parents looking after their mothers and their grandparents devotedly
devoting all their wealth to their parents till death.
we are constantly reminded
the phrases be nice to your children
because they will choose your retirement home.
last panel with Allah grant has the ability to act upon the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam teachings whose beauty and whose worth and value even the pagans record
and as also the answer he instructs us to prayer to truthfulness, to extension or sinner and to the bonding of the ties of blood. I end with this we will continue with the remainder of these next week in Sharla are similar
to what I saw in the Vietnam human while he was
like a lot more.
