Allahu Muslim Nana
kamasan later Allah,
Allah Allah ebrahimian Majeed Allah
respect to listeners, this is our fourth session
of the study and commentary of
the famous for these of heraclius from Ohio.
In the previous three weeks, we've read through the beginning part of the heading.
we've learned that
of of Sofia, who's the main rate of the study and delight in our bus of the Allahumma relates to Hadees from Sophia,
who said that during the troops of her Navy,
in the seventh year of hedger
taking advantage of this troops who traveled up north to Sham
as part of a trade caravan he and proximately 30 others or the 30.
There was summoned by heraclius, the Byzantine Roman Emperor, who wanted to find out more about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of whom he was informed by the by his vassal and allied with the signing of King.
And also further to the information supplied by the kasana, King
heraclius had received a direct letter from the School of Law, some of the law while he was sending them, which he had sent with the hit will can be it'll be a law
that it will be delivered this letter to heraclius he had received it.
having read the letter heraclius had sought to discover more information about the prophecy love it.
That's why he summoned Sophia. And I've covered all of this in detail when this caravan was brought to the Royal Court in Jerusalem where heraclius was at that particular time.
Also, Fiona and his colleagues were made to sit down and they he interrogated him about the profits in the library, legal system, and his people's relationship with the Messenger of Allah. He asked 10 questions, and they were very precise, very selective, and well thought out.
And this is where we have stopped he had asked his 10th question, and then having heard that also, Karen's answers, here actually has now proceeded to review each question
with its own answer, and then
heraclius will provide his own analysis of that answer, albeit briefly. So this is where we left off and we shall continue from here
will be this northern Muslim in the in a moment, de la on and I relate with an uninterrupted continuous chain from me to the
law will then save as part of it for our little drummer. So he here actually is said to the interpreter will say to him, meaning of all Sofia,
I asked you about his lineage, his ancestry.
For the god the unknown equals illness and
so you mentioned that he was
One of great ancestry and lineage amongst you
for that article Russell, so that's the boss of hanzomon. Sir, he says, I asked you about his lineage. So you said he is a man of great lineage. And a great line of great bloodline amongst us, that was also Kansans. Now, here actually is provided as analysis for that article, to biography Mr. dipalma.
are the messengers sent amongst the elite of their people.
Now, also heraclius, as I mentioned, he was a very
militarily successful ruler.
At the time, he was questioning also young he was at the height and zennith of his power.
And he wasn't just a successful ruler, an emperor, or a great military General, he was very brave and courageous, he fought, he would fight in the battlefield, along with all of the all of his impressive qualities were the political military. heraclius was also a very devout Christian. And he had knowledge of the Christian scriptures.
And he was well versed in Christian teach. So this was the background to his questioning.
He knew the pattern
of Allah in His prophets and messengers, he knew the traditions of the prophets. He knew the capital,
of the relationship between the messengers of Allah and their peoples.
And all of his questions were very precise.
And they were couched in that knowledge, that background knowledge of the earlier prophets, messengers, peoples nations and scriptures.
And that's why his replies and his analysis was
so accurate. So, he says that I asked you about his lineage and you said he is a man of great lineage amongst you.
So his, his analysis was then was for Cavalli, Caruso, Tabasco phenos.
And so in such a manner, are the messengers sent amongst the elite of their people, and the meaning of elite is amongst the best lineage of their people.
Allow me to expand on this.
There were two things about the messengers of Allah alayhi wa Salatu, was set up.
And he actually is referring to both of them,
all of the messengers, one,
that the messengers
were of the nobility, they were of a noble background of a noble bloodline and ancestry.
They were pure stock.
And nobody ever looked down upon them.
Because of their
background, their lineage, their family, or their ancestry.
It may not be the case today.
In many parts of the world is their lives. And traditionally almost universally, family can clan.
One's bloodline, one's lineage and ancestry meant a lot.
It gave a person a right to dignity, honor titles.
And the British were of a similar mindset. Virtually all the messengers of Allah alayhi wa Salatu was salam, when they were sent to their people, their peoples were of a similar mindset.
But no messenger of Allah was ever frowned upon, looked down upon or held in contempt, because of his family or lineage.
They may have been scorned because of their poverty.
And this is one
there is a distinction between wealth
and between ancestry
Abu Talib was the son of Abdullah
Abdullah was regarded as the shave and the leader of the whole of the branch in Mecca. He was the ruler the uncrowned king of Mecca, the chief of the Chiefs that's
when he passed away.
He was the head of the blue hashing clan. And amongst all the clans, the blue Hirshman clan under his leadership was preeminent.
He was the first amongst the bulls.
After his death, leadership of the blue Hirshman clan went to his son of all barley.
Barley was still considered a great leader, wise, noble, honorable, a man of great dignity and standing. However, he did not enjoy the prestige or the power of his father.
powerful leadership of Makkah, then transferred from the new Hashem at the death of him to the other clans mainly been Muslim.
And from the room assume you had the father of hardener worried
and worried about Maria, you had Abuja.
And you had other more very prominent members, so almost all the clans, the most powerful at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu, it was sometimes called Islam was the banal Muslim clan, which have taken over from the bundle hash.
One of the reasons was that little hash
and after Abdullah
bin Hashem under the leader of leadership, and while it
wasn't as wealthy as some of the other kinds, and it will bind him himself, was somewhat impoverished summit so that he had a large family. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam moved in with him.
He did not wish to be a burden to his uncle, at a tender young age, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began earning his own living. And as a child, at the age of 10, approximately or maximum 12 plus all the latest Serato slam would go out
into the desert, beyond the city of Mecca, and heard flocks of sheep. All day long, he would leave in the morning and arrive at
and there was a wisdom in that as well. A last panel with Anna, at that tender young age and in those formative years of being a teenager law has kept him away from the hustle bustle of city life, and also from the revelry and festivity of the young Atlantis. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would spend the whole day in peace in solitude, in the remembrance of Allah in with nature, with an old, clear mind, and he would return extremely tired at night, and retire, and the next morning he would return to the desert. So
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself says Mammon, Libyan illawarra, Dunham, there is no messenger, no prophet of Allah, except that he has herded flocks of sheep, every prophet has been a shepherd.
There's great wisdom and so, this show the poverty of
yet despite being extremely poor, but not extremely despite being poor, he was regarded as a noble. So, there is a distinction between wealth and nobility.
per person can be extremely wealthy, but wealth does not make a person noble and dignified. And a person can be poor and can be poor. But they are, they can still maintain a certain dignity and hold a certain position, especially if they come from good ancestry, good blood, which means Good stuff, good training, a good mind. Good that'll be
wisdom and understanding. So this is the first point of the two that I wish to address about the messengers of Allahu wa Salatu was Salam one, they always came from pure stock from the best of their people, the elite of that evil, even though they may have been poor, because we draw a distinction between poverty and nobility. So wealth and nobility, and therefore none of the messengers were ever taunted or suffered jobs or were
frowned upon or held in contempt because of their family, their lineage and their ancestry.
is that having come from this as a second thing having come from prominent families,
all the people, of these messengers AlLahi wa Salatu was Salam. They mean, the prophets of Allah. They knew their families, they knew their parents, their grandparents, their lineage, bear clan can try. They were unknown people. And being unknown people, they grew up amongst their own people.
Everyone knew them, they knew their background, their history, their childhood. And this was very important.
last panel data in short, this so that the, the same prophets of Allah, when they would invite their people to the religion of alarm to the revelation that they had received.
People may disagree with the revelation. People may rebel against the revelation.
But they would not be justified in doubting the veracity, the integrity, the honesty, or the character of any of these messengers of Allah, because they were known.
And they mean, their history, their background, there was nothing suspicious about
and this was the history of all the prophets of Allah Allahu wa Salatu was Salam. O.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says repeatedly in the Quran, for instance, without Medina, Han Schreiber, Alia O'Meara de la Hamada coming in as
well as in Han Buddha, Alia Tommy la Malik Amina well as the mother who saw her earlier, Amir, la mala, Camilla, and
all these prophets, exactly the same words were in around in her home.
And to the people of ad we sent their brother who were in the mood at Hong Kong.
And to the people of the mood we sent their brother, sorry, we're in our Medina, Holden shaver. And so the people of Midian, we sent their brother Shane, and all of them said exactly the same, same thing, are the only mo de la Malik Amina in a row. He said, Oh, my people, worship love, there is no God for you. Besides,
what's the significance of having your owning a home owning a home, you're calling that brother, who then said oh my people, that brother meaning one of them, they knew him. They knew his lineage was that ancestry, his family, his kin, they could not doubt him. There was nothing suspicious about him. He wasn't a stranger. He didn't just appear all of a sudden, he didn't just rise one day, and deliver something
of which before about which the people had to verify his veracity, his honesty, his integrity, his trustworthiness, before they could accept the message or accept it. No, they knew them that these are the best of our people. They come from the best family, the best background, they are the best of character. They are honest, trustworthy, voracious. Therefore they could not that this was the son of a law, his tradition and pattern amongst all of his messengers, and even was set out to them just like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even before the regulator even before he announced profited, even before he delivered the message to them, they regarded him as a solid
amine, the truthful one, the trustworthy one, and I've commented on this over the past few weeks, I won't repeat myself. This is a very important point.
For us today to
since as mentioned in the Hadeeth, related data, the law and recorded by a man or Buddha within a certain amount should have a handle and it is Muslim and others are sort of love to love it who seldom stays, that that roller man are what a thrill and that will among the scholars
are the successors to the prophets.
They follow in the footsteps of the prophets, they are the inheritors of the treasure of the prophets.
And therefore, the holy man
cannot enjoy the privilege
of the title of successors to the prophets and inheritors of the treasure of the prophets, without the commensurate responsibilities to they have a duty to fulfill
They follow in the footsteps of the NBA he was Salaam, Allah subhanho wa Taala if they are true sincere Allah ensures that they are the true successes of the prophets and the true inheritors of the treasure of the prophets. And the treasure of the prophets as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, is not the now
in the Mahabharata, rather they have bequeath the treasure of knowledge. That means that Allah follow in their footsteps, the sooner the pattern, and the tradition that Allah has in the messengers, a lot also has the same similar tradition and perhaps in amongst that Roland Martin, just as the prophets of Allah were mocked and ridiculed, that will amount are mocked and ridiculed, just as they suffered, that will suffer. Those who follow in the footsteps of the Prophet sallahu wa salam, they also suffer
as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, I should the mercy of Allah.
The people who are the most intensely tested and subjected to trials and tribulations are the prophets of Allah, then the best than the best.
And this is also one tradition, that just as a man, just as the prophets of Allah, were known to their people.
They knew they knew their families, they knew their background, they knew their history.
So when the Muslim rose and delivered the message of Allah, they could not question the character or the integrity and the honesty of that and the Adda, who was Salatu was Salam. They weren't strangers. Similarly, it's been the pattern throughout Islam, that will have a large religion, following in the footsteps of the MBR that was set out to a Salaam, unknown to their people. They are one of their people, they are known to their people, the people know them, their families, their backgrounds, their history, their childhood, their upbringing, the community knows them, the knows them.
All among those who just suddenly spring up from an obscure background.
Quite unknown to their people, regardless of what they say.
And it's not just about knowing the family and the ancestry, or the lineage, or the kin and clan. Rather, it's about knowing the character, the integrity, that upbringing, the whole history and experience of the older man.
They may disagree with them.
But they cannot doubt their integrity and their honesty, or their sincerity and devotion. This is true for the truth. This is for the true orlimar of the prophets of love, large religion and the prophets of Allah has.
This is no comment on any one individual or group of individuals one way or the other. I'm just explaining the pattern of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the prophets of Allah, and in the successes to the prophets of Allah. I can only pray that Allah makes us amongst those who are the true followers of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the MBR It was
correctly said, I asked you about his lineage, and you mentioned that he is a man of great lineage amongst you. And for coverly got awesome. The wrath of Venus told me her, and thus are the messengers sent amongst the best of their people. And as I mentioned, that beautiful hadith of Sufi Muslim related by worth the a la hora and he says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
in the last the firkin anthem in one of these smart he was the first operation monkey Nana was the farming operation Benihana she was the family member the harsh Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah selected Ghana,
from the children of the smarty
and from the children of this man from Guinean Allah selected the branch and from the range Allah selected been harsh, and from the new Hashem Allah selected me.
Furthermore, sort of laughs in the laboratory or seldom saves and headaches later by man Timothy in the sun and remount actually doesn't humble in his Muslim from also even the Allahu I'm Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, and I see you the one or the other. My name is Dr. Murthy.
I am the master of the children of Adam,
on the day of resurrection and this is no boast
He is the master of the whole of mankind, not just the best of all hashing, and the best of range, and not just the best of the children who is married, but the best of the children of Adam and Eve.
The next question here actually is then said, What's the addressing the balls of yarn through the interpreter? He said was the otakon. I asked you, how many come? Hello. Has anyone Have you ever claimed this claim before for the cult that Allah, so you mentioned no football. So I said meaning, he miraculous says I said to myself, now, this is his analysis. Now Ghana, Allah has an Ola public.
If anyone had made the same claim before this man,
then I would have surely said Rajan, yeah.
This is simply a man who is imitating
a claim that was made before him.
So this was the second question, which is that? Tell me Has anyone ever made the same claim as this man before?
Who said the same thing? So I will see him said no. So now this is heraclius analysis, that if that is the case, that no man before the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu, alayhi wasallam amongst your people ever made the same claim, that this is a novel claim. This is a new claim. And he is not imitating someone from before. He's not imitating he's not repeating.
Rather, he has come with something unique.
Then he said, was that?
Remember, heraclius was speaking about the Grange about the people of Makkah. Of course, the messages of the messengers of Allah are the same, they are universal. But as far as operation was concerned, the people of McDowell concerned for as long as they could remember, nobody had come up with the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which was unique, as I mentioned, time and time again, during the commentary over the past few weeks, he, he didn't just tell them, that change your diet, change your dress,
given straight to the top, he said to them,
abandon your gods,
the very gods and idols that you have been worshipping, abandon them,
abolish the worship of these idols.
And that was truly a unique
message. And it must have been extremely difficult for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as it will be for any men to deliver. But he was a messenger of Allah, and he delivered it. And it must have been equally difficult for such people to listen to that message. And yet many
accepted that message. So it was a very unique message. And that's what heraclius was trying to determine. That is easy just following in someone else's footsteps. Is he just making the same claim? Or is this a new and unique claim? And he was a unique claim? Third question, what's the book? And I asked him, How can I mean other human medic? Was there any King amongst his ancestors?
For the God that Allah? So you replied, No, also can had said no, there is no Kingdom all says ancestors.
I said, fellow Ghana mean Abba human medic.
I said meaning to myself, because this is exactly as now analyzing also fianza answers. So he says, I said meaning to myself, that if this man who claims to be a prophet had an ancestor who was a monarch who was a king, then I would have said, Rajan, Yakubu Kirby. This is simply a man who is trying to reclaim the
crown of his ancestor.
And that's what would normally happen.
squabbles, political rivalries
the crown, and this leading to battles and wars and civil wars. Traditionally, this was a lot of it was to do with who had the claim to the crown, the monarchy, the throne, and who was a pretender.
So he realized that since the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had no ancestor who was a monarch, then he wasn't to pretend
To a throne.
The next question was the elder. And I asked you remember the prophets in the long run, he was sending his ancestors to arrange. They did not have this tradition, it was a tribal society. So they never had the tradition of being crowned rulers
that they had there were clusters. So each clan was in an alliance with other clans as part of a tribe, the tribes were in an alliance with other tribes. And there were these alliances were forever shifting. And amongst these equal clans, there was always one or there were always a few more powerful and more preeminent clans, but they were constantly shifting, without any formal ceremony. Just as I mentioned, Abdullah was the most powerful during his time, since he was the most powerful, and he was a leader and the shape of the brush. But he was a preeminent clan. But upon his death, without any formal ceremony, or crying, that leadership passed over to the maluma.
But, again, that wasn't a dict. It wasn't some form of dictatorship, that they this was a council of tribal elders, and they would honor one another. So they would gather, and in fact, it was a very, it was quite democratic. Even though it was a tribal society, it was quite democratic. So there was no king. And that's what also fiam said, and therefore heraclius said that if there was a monarch or a king amongst his ancestors, I would say he is merely a pretender to the throne. So he's not,
he hasn't opposed you. He hasn't raised his message in order to be your king, rather than something else. Next question.
What's the L duck? And I asked you, how could it be that the homeowner who will get it published in your Panama card? Would you ever accuse him of lying before he said, what he said,
for the carta Allah, so you mentioned that No,
none of them ever accused the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of lying about anything
before he announced and proclaim the message of Allah
so what's heraclius his analysis? He says, * that.
Therefore, indeed do I know. And the hula mucuna Leah that uncovered at announced clever Allah. very insightful analysis, listen to his words. He says, I asked you Did any of you ever accuse him of lying before? He said what he said. So you said no.
So he says, Therefore I do no, indeed, that he is not want
to leave lying against the people, yet lie against the law.
How can a man who for 40 years of his life, known to his people, never lie about the now or there, never lie about menial, mundane things never lie about anything.
And you have never none of you have ever accused them of dishonesty or lying against a child, a woman, a man an elder, or any individual. And yet at the at prime age of 40. At the age of wisdom and responsibility, suddenly this man rises and makes a bold bear faced lie and a claim against a lot. This can never happen.
What's the L doc? And I asked you see how insightful and how precise is questions.
What's the outlook and I asked you shut off the baru
as of last season, the Koran
or messenger of Allah.
We know indeed
in the julio de PUE.
Now what they say grieves
and it's sad and
then Allah reassures him, for him nothing like
when I can avoid him in the
room. So now all prophets of Allah, we know, indeed, We surely know that what they say grieves you in certainty, but for the Buddha
prophets of Allah, they do not belie you will, in no value mean a bit at law at all. Rather these sinful people, they deny the signs.
So they're not rejecting you. Even Allah reassured him, that they do not consider you Allah.
They may accuse you of soothsaying of madness of sorcery,
but they do not accuse you of lying.
Then heraclius asked him, was that a doc Ashraful nurse at the baru?
Did the nobility amongst the people did the nobles of the people follow him or their weak ones?
For the government, so you mentioned
that the week of the people followed him. So this is, this is iraklia analysis.
And they mean the alpha the week, they are the followers of the messengers. He knew that from the scriptures. He knew that from the tradition and the history of the prophets of Allah. It was always the case. arrogance, blinds a person.
arrogance, clouds, a person's judgment, wealth, intoxicating,
and corrupts power in toxic hates and corrupts wealth and power make a person delusional.
And in that delusion in that confusion in that arrogance, in that stupor and intoxication in that inebriated state, a person can't see truth or the truth. person can't see light or the
person can't distinguish.
In fact, in that delusional state, a person sees truth whether it's false and false, whether it's true as a law testifies in the saucer before it Lavine.
ladle hop in your cooler is in the
war in Iraq severely. Vila, Allah says, I will turn away from my signs, those who are arrogant upon the earth without just holes that run
even if they see every sign, they will not believe. Rather, if they see the path of righteousness, they will not adopt that path. But if they see the path of waywardness, they will take that.
So there are many verses of the Quran that speak about that delusion of wealth, the story of the two men of sort of death, which I've mentioned the numerous occasions
his wealth made him delusion.
And he said, My other non TV the have he ever.
I don't think all of these estates and limbs and orchards and vineyards of mine and these rivers and streams that I enjoy in my lands, I do not believe any of this will perish. He believed that he was immortal, and his estates and his riches and his property well was everlasting. Might have to be the Harvey he,
then his delusion, took him one step further. He said, well now
and in fact, I don't believe that there is ever going to be an hour of judgment or reckoning, the world won't come to an end.
But if it does, I don't think there will be any resurrection or reckoning
then his delusion to confirm it. Why don't you read it to
let's presume that there is a reckoning, life will come to an end, there is a day of resurrection and reckoning. Then, if if you say is well eroded, if ever I am returned to my Lord, then there are shall enjoy a greater return by him meaning he will give me more there than he has given me here.
So, this is delusion
and it leads a person to
and to believe in one's mortality.
wailing Nicola Lomas de la de Gemma Amala word Yes, I
won't be able to every slandering defame who accumulates wealth. What are the accounts for forever? countenance?
Yes, several and Amanda horselover. He thinks that his wealth will give him everlasting life.
He thinks that his wealth will make him immortal.
That's what wealth does. That's what parent is. But those who are poor, those who are powerless, those who are weak and mean, they are normally humble, humility, create simplicity, simplicity and a person and a clarity instead of confusion. It creates an open mind and an open heart, and it maintains the beauty of one's character. One's judgment isn't a cloud.
The most charitable people are the most poor. The poorest are the most charitable, the weak, the mean, the humble, they are the ones beloved to others,
and they are the ones beloved to Allah.
As I mentioned in
law, a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Seaton seen companions, someone walked past. So he asked us to how about all the love? What do you say of this man?
So the Sahaba sadalsuud Allah, a man
who is a noble
a man, I'm paraphrasing a man who if he asks for someone's hand, in marriage, he will be married.
A man if he asks for something, he will not be refused, because of his well,
Another man walked past a humble Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, What do you think of this man? This is the art of School of Law. A man
who is not regarded as being one of great worth,
who is looked down upon by others, a man, if he asked for someone's hand in marriage, he would be rejected.
A man if he asked for something is requested or returned.
To love it was seldom said
a world. He said, This man, the second one is better than a world full of the first one.
Allah loves those who are humble.
And this is the reason why all the prophets of Allah had a massage.
Then the followers for the meek, the weak, the poor, the humble.
And that's why they even said to one of the prophets of Allahu wa Salatu, salam, the Prophet
and we do not see except that those who have followed you,
Morocco back in London, we cannot see that anyone has followed you except the worthless and the lowly ones amongst us
by the euro. Very interesting verse, by the first instance.
Meaning These are simple folk.
They are humble, they are weak they are powerless position lis, they enjoy no prestige, no position. We do not regard them as anything. They're worthless in our eyes. And they are so simple as simpletons by the arrival
that you at the first instance, meaning at the first instant, you delivered the message to them and they accepted, you delivered the message to them, they accepted, you spoke to them they expected. So what the powerful and the elite are trying to suggest is that we are intelligence, we are wise we are cultivated and cultured. We know these are simple folk, they are the riffraff so they don't understand. You delivered your simple message to them and these simple sounds accepted and just followed
by the era.
But the word body
is not a taught they regarded it as a giant on top. But in the case of the believers, it wasn't at all. Why wasn't taught exactly as I've described, because of their simplicity, their meekness.
Their minds were clear their hearts were clear. When the messengers of Allah first spoke, these people's clear hearts and mind instantly recognize the truth and saw the law.
So they they believed instantly at the first instant of is regarded them as simple things, but they weren't simple.
And what the liens and the nobility fought off as being
cultivated culture, intelligent understanding,
that was no wisdom or understanding rather that was their delusion and their confusion and their clouded judgment, because of their arrogance. So this is the history of all the prophets and even with Salatu was salam, Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah has said, in many different places that the weak
were the followers of the Prophets, and the arrogance. Were the rejecters of the prophets. I've covered this in some detail earlier on, as well as in my talk about arrogance. So do refer to that, when I gave a few weeks ago.
What's the L doc? And I asked you
do they increase the number?
Or do they decrease for the government?
So you mentioned
that they increase
now, despite all the difficulties, so how about the alarm? Surely, but slowly, in Makkah, they were increasing in the
walk early on,
even directly essays, and this is the case with EMA. This is the case with faith until it reaches its completion, ie
the faith of the messengers and
the faith, the faith meaning the religion of the messengers, Aleikum, WA Salatu was the followers of the messengers and even what stood out to us today.
They are forever on the increase slowly. But surely,
until the last panel with Anna completes the message of each of these messages. And that was the case with an assault Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there were a handful of believers. And
despite all the odds, despite all the persecution, and even now we witness
the miracle effect.
And I'll explain this more in a moment
continues to increase. What's the outlook and then I asked you Next question. Are your
thoughts on Lee burger in your coffee?
And I asked you
Does anyone have them? Meaning followers,
apostate from his religion, after embracing it after entering into it
for the garter Allah so you mentioned now
and indeed, this How about the law of karma?
Even before the hitch despite all the persecution, the torture, even murder,
all the pressure and imprisonment.
They would not apostate from their religion. Look at See you then have been added not about the law or under torture. He refused to utter a single word to please.

And that was a case of so many of us have battled the alarm.
But none of them became disillusioned are related the story of the asset or the alarm and if anyone wants to be disillusioned, it would be a matter of the asset. That the last one he witnessed. His mother saw me out of the alarm around her being killed and martyred. He witnessed his father being tortured. His mother being tortured his mother, father being tortured, and eventually dying as a result of that torture. And he himself was tortured terribly. And he was forced to utter a word
which he immediately regretted.
And a person says anything under torture.
he denounced his religion under torture.
But instantly, when he was released, he repented. He wept. He sought the forgiveness of Allah He sought the forgiveness of the companions. He wanted to seek the forgiveness of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam they could not face them, but last panel
Allah knew that he had said a single word and the torture, however, his heart remained clear. And Thurman believe a lot of Virgil actually exonerated him, like excused him. And about him he did a lie reveal the verse in Lamin ockley waka.
Man, except for one who is compelled, but his heart is content with faith. And that was a matter of the asset or the alarm. under immense torture, he experienced all of that.
Why would a murder my sister from the Allah and others like him? What need was there for them to tolerate such abuse, torture, even murder, such wanton killing wouldn't have been easier for them to
even be neutral. They could have said, We are neither with the Quraysh nor are we with the Muslims, we remain neutral, we're just not involved. They would have saved their lives their property, they would have saved themselves their skin.
But what led them to this belief, and after that belief, what led them to remain steadfast summit so that amount of we asked that will be alive and he suffered in Mecca, even after the hijra. And as I mentioned, while he was building the machine, the sort of loss of the love it was cinemas wiping and dusting the dust off his body. And while he was doing it, he was saying to him, won't be unto your armor. How will it be when the rebel foreshore killer
is predicting his death? This is a man who's seen torture and death all his life.
And now, having witnessed his father and mother
dying, the same prophets of Allah is prophesizing his own death and saying to him, how will it be with you when the rebel foreshore kill? Couldn't see him said that all. One could argue a cynic would say that for a memorably asked, religion brought in nothing but death, and the profits is prophesizing further his own death. Yes, and Marvin the asset of the law one, he believed in the words of the messenger
and it did not shake him or change him in any way rather, as a last season sort of bizarre when the believers saw what the Allied forces of the British brought against them in the fifth year of hedra in the Battle of the trench, they said have Wigan Allahu Sula, who was a la hora, sola amasa la mano.
This is what Allah and His Messenger promised. And Allah His Messenger line, His Messenger spoke the truth, and this whole experience, or Masada, la mano with us NEMA. It did not increase them except in faith and in submission. That's something which we cannot understand.
It's unique, and even heraclius knew that, therefore listening to his analysis, despite everything they face, they did not turn away or apostate from their religion, out of disillusionment, there were some cases of Apostasy, but many, but virtually every one of them was to do with either greed or to save oneself. Or for personal reasons, never because of disillusion.
And that's why he specifically asked that did any Do any of them apostate from their religion? He turned away after embracing it, not for any other reason. But out of disillusionment, out of disenchantment with this religion, or philosophy and said no, listen to the analysis of heraclius He says, walk early can emang and such as faith kena Bahar little Masha shabu when its radiance merges with the hearts. That's iraklis analysis. That's such as faith, when its delights and its radiance merges and mingles with behalfs.
Even heraclius understood that when faith when a man creeps into a person's heart, it's mysterious. And at the same time miraculous,
it's unshakeable faith
emerges with the heart, a person tastes the sweetness of email.
And we see that today even though
there are many, despite all the hostility.
There are many who look into Islam.
Read about Islam, what introduced Islam and
And when they embrace,
they remain firm on their religion.
And people just cannot understand their conversion. People cannot understand their reason, the sudden change and this drastic and dramatic change from one person to another,
their parents could not change them, their families could not change them.
But the words of the prophets of Allah have changed
the words of the Quran in a language that they do not understand have changed them
and change them in such a way that they themselves become a force of change.
And this is how the Sahaba of the law
before they embrace Islam,
they lead lives,
which would be an ethic
to those who have not known that life.
when they embraced Islam, when they followed the prophets of Allah,
Allah subhanho wa Taala made them the leaders of creation after that unreality who said that
they are the best of the best, the elite of the elite,
the best of the last creation.
That's what a man does.
It's mysterious, and it's miraculous, miraculous, and even heraclius understood that that's why he sees and such as emerge, such as faith, cleaning up the harlot, massage massage room, when its radiance matches and mingles with the hearts.
What's the next question? And I asked you the other day?
Does he deceived meaning the Prophet of Allah, for Allah? So you mentioned No.
And remember what word Abu Sufyan slipped in? When heraclius asked him that?
Does this prophet deceive? So he said,
No, he doesn't see. But at the moment, we are in a period of truce with him. But we do not know what he's going to do in this truce. Will he deceive or not. And then I've also added that I was unable to insert or interpolate, but I was unable to insert a single word against the Prophet of Allah, in my entire conversation with heraclius, except this one where
he managed to slip in snippets, in fact, the seed of doubt that he hasn't deceived us yet. But we are in a truce with him now. So we do not know whether he will deceive us. We don't know what he will do. But heraclius was intelligent enough to overlook that and to ignore it.
He ignored it completely. And that's why he doesn't repeat it here. He simply says, was there and I asked you, does he to see for the good of the unknown? So you said no, what he called hostile law. So his analysis was, and Such are the messengers. They do not deceive.
next question and then I asked you may Morricone, what does he instruct you to do for the government? So he you mentioned and the whole Yeah, Family Law without actually officially be shy. You mentioned that he instruction that's worship Allah and do not associate anything with him in partnership. We UNHRC other than our son, and he prevents you from the worship of idols.
Also fan they've actually said those words,
that he prevents you from the worship of idols, but you're actually this is providing that analysis himself, that this is the meaning of the law.
That worship law alone and do not associate any partner or anything in partnership with him. here actually is his own interpretation of that is that he prevents you from the worship of idols, we honor and he instructs you to prayer and to truthfulness when I first entered abstention from anything which is deplorable, which is forbidden, which is undignified. That's the interpretation I gave you last week. Otherwise, the words are what are fast and abstention. He commands you to remain abstemious to remain
to refrain. Refrain from what to refrain from forbidden things, unlawful things and dignified things
Sometimes a thing can be permissible, but it's undignified.
And a true believer is someone who abstains from everything which is not only unlawful, which is also undignified.
Here heraclius ends his analysis. Now.
He also said it's not mentioned here, but in another narration of this video, he adds that this is what He commands you to do, that he commands you to prayer to charity to truthfulness, and substantiation. So he adds in another generation of mahadi itself. What However, he says, supernovae, that this is the character This is the quality of a prophet. This is what prophets do. This is what they advise their followers to do. The 10th question is missing. One of the questions is missing the analysis, but it's mentioned in other narrations, it's just missing in this one duration, the eisenhardt is to be found elsewhere. And what was that? Remember, he asked him the
question that have you ever fought with him? So he said, Yes. He said, How is the battle between you? So he said, The battle is alternating and how will mean and our soldier, it's alternating. So he says, and I asked you about your battles with him. So you said you have fought him and your wars and art your battles are alternating. And this is the case with the prophets of Allah.
essays. This is the case with the messengers that
sometimes they score victories, sometimes victories are scored against them. But but he says, the end result and the final consequence is for the profits of just as the last season look for brands that have a lot of animosity in the law, we Yun Aziz, Allah has decreed that I am my messengers shall prevail. Verily, Allah is all powerful all night.
After having entered into interrogation and his analysis, what does heraclius say after all of that, and remember, this has taken place in a royal court, surrounded by his dignitaries, as visitors as ministers and generals. And he's at the height of his power.
directly as the Roman Emperor, he says,
For in Ghana, Mata Paulo.
So if what you say is true,
for cM locomole, the academia thing, and he shall soon possess the place beneath my feet.
Because he knew this is a messenger.
And being the Messenger of Allah, everything that he has just analyzed will prove to be true.
And Alas, promise to him, will prove to be true, as it was true to the messengers of your
soul. So he says, He will possess this land beneath my feet. Further, he adds a lot of work. And this was who iraklis, the Byzantine Roman Emperor, who had just scored a decisive victory over the society, Persian Empire, and was now at the height of his power. And he was the emperor of the reigning superpower of the time. He says, walk up to them, and the whole hard edge, and I knew that the prophets was about to emerge.
But I did not think that he was one of you float in the air, and and so therefore, if I do know, and the delay, that I can reach them safely, that they are, then I will venture to meet him.
And if I am by him, let
me know then I shall wash his feet.
And in one narration of this video by Bharani, he says, I shall kiss his forehead and washes
because he knew he was a messenger.
And the Iraqi is the Byzantine Roman Emperor says that I will go to him how in humility, I will go to him not as a king, but as a follower, to believe in Him to kiss his forehead, submit before him to humbly wash his feet.
How many of us have washed the feet of our fathers or mothers?
A simple question
for everything that our parents have done for us,
has served them
With loving devotion, even as an act of kindness,
in the old age in their senior age, to take their feet and to wash,
we are rapidly losing that humility and that respect.
And of course, there is no comparison
between parents and the Messenger of Allah. But the amount of the analogy I'm trying to draw is that we as children, some some of us, as children cannot bring ourselves to do that will have never bothered or never thought of doing that. Here is the most powerful ruler of the known world, saying, in an instant, that if I can reach him, I will venture to
meet him. I will kiss his forehead washes for
some other Abracadabra, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah, the Baraka he married
for the pharaoh who hit up la cara, then heraclius called for summoned the letter which he had read before. You see, he did all of this for a certain reason. He had already read the message of the letter of the prophets and the lighting, and he puts it aside. And this is what led him to interrogating the voice of young in that manner. Then when all his court ears, his generals, his dignitaries and his most powerful politicians,
and the patricians and the patriarchs of the Roman Empire, when they had heard this whole conversation, and its analysis, he then in a dramatic fashion, called for the lesser of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam.
All of this shows that he knew that the prophets of Allah was a true messenger. And not only that, but he wanted to believe
he wanted to embrace.
He then called for the letter of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Baraka, he made it here, which he had sent and dispatched with the idea that although your loved one in Armenia, Muslim to the governor, or not to the governor, but to the ruler of Basra This is Basra, Muslim, is pasta. This was one of these
Medina and Damascus.
It was, it was a great famous city at the time. This was mainly occupied by the solid Arabs, not by the Byzantine Romans themselves, but the Arabs. So he sent it to the ruler of Basra. And
this is not the buzzer.
This is the Basra of Syria.
So he sent it to the ruler of Basra. He then dispatched that letter to the proper to heraclius, a Roman Emperor for the pharaoh who Illa Iraq, which he then forwarded to heraclius for Tara van iraklis, Reddit apps, meaning he had it publicly rather, for either fi. Remember, also, Karen had no knowledge of this letter. He didn't know that heraclius had already received the letter. And he had already read it. And he was aware of its content for abuse of urine, who still was an unbeliever at the time. This was something new. He's just describing what happened after interrogation. He called for the letter. And then he read out the letter. And this was the these were the contents of the
letter. And the
very beautiful, we don't have time to go into detail. I'll end here, but I'll just read the letter and translate it. And we'll end with that, and I'll comment on it next week in detail in Sharla. Either fee, so the content of the letter was less Bismillahirrahmanirrahim by the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, Mohammed Abdullah, who was sued from home the servants of Allah and His Messenger illa hirak. La Vina room to heraclius, the ruler of the Romans, salaam, Allah Hoda, peace be upon one who follows the guidance, Amar bath, Following this, for any rule can be the eye that is there for us. So I invite you with the call of Islam, a slim the slim.

The sun that the sin of the commoners were. And yeah,
are people of the book, there are no inner Kalimantan come to aware, so are in being in our being equal between a new alarm that will that law that we shall not worship anyone but Allah will be here and that we should not associate anything with him in partnership, when I definitely will not abandon Alibaba mendola and that we, we shall not take each other as Lords besides Allah for in the one low, but if you turn away for all the shuttle they announced the moon, then say to them, that you bear witness that we are Muslims. That's the letter. And then Hades continues in sha Allah. I'll comment on the letter from the beginning. Next week. Maybe we are unable to appreciate the
eloquence, but a lot of these words, the Arabic, the rhythm, the rhyme, the sequence, the order, the precision, the succinct nature of the words, only a messenger of Allah could utter such words.
is impregnated with every single word, and the style the delivery.
This was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam writing from Medina
in a period of truce, still confined to the city of Medina in terms of power,
not still having conquered Makkah.
Having experienced the Battle of the trench, in which some would argue was a stalemate, there was no victory
and yet he is writing a letter
to the mightiest ruler

and he begins with the words Mohammed bin Abdullah he was from Mohammed the seventh of Allah and His Messenger Allah hirak laulima room. So here actually is the great one of the Romans. He does not address him as king.
He does not address him as Emperor
just says a ruler.
And he the Messenger of Allah is telling the mightiest ruler at the time, a slim

Words are beautiful. I ended with this. This is true for all the messengers of Allah Hannibal salado standard were very eloquent. I'll elaborate on this next week in Sharla. We have lost with Allah enable us to
