Ibrahim in

00:01:07--> 00:01:08

respect to listeners,

00:01:10--> 00:01:10

we gather

00:01:15--> 00:01:16

for the

00:01:17--> 00:01:20

final parting shot of the

00:01:21--> 00:01:24

study and commentary of

00:01:25--> 00:01:30

the famous hadith of heraclius from sahibabad.

00:01:34--> 00:01:36

Over the past

00:01:37--> 00:01:38

few weeks

00:01:40--> 00:01:45

have been read most of the studies related by Manmohan Singh law he had a

00:01:46--> 00:01:54

lead number seven from Abdullah in our bus, it'll be a logline Homer who relates from a girl Sophia

00:01:58--> 00:01:59

also can

00:02:01--> 00:02:02

narrates his own story.

00:02:03--> 00:02:08

That's in the after the truce of Libya in the 60s.

00:02:10--> 00:02:20

Shortly thereafter, most likely at the beginning of the seventh year of hedger taking advantage of this truce and the

00:02:21--> 00:02:29

opportunity to travel past Medina from north woods to Sham for trained. He took a caravan,

00:02:30--> 00:02:38

a trade caravan, consisting of approximately 30 traders, and it was very significant Jen

00:02:40--> 00:02:44

whilst they were trading in the port city of Gaza, in China

00:02:47--> 00:02:56

heraclius, the Byzantine Roman Emperor come to Jerusalem, to pay homage and to celebrate his victory,

00:02:57--> 00:03:11

or many victories of the signing Persians. heraclius, second of all, Sophia, and the reason for summoning him is that Iraqis had

00:03:12--> 00:03:22

learned about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But the information that he had was very brief was very scary. It was very sketchy. So he wanted

00:03:24--> 00:03:49

an Arab and also someone who knew the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, also fion was hauled from the Gaza, along with his companions to Jerusalem, and there they were summoned to the Royal Palace, and surrounded by his core tears, is leading dignitaries

00:03:50--> 00:04:13

and religious figures of the Empire correctly as had also Fiona and his companion seated before him. And then he proceeded to interrogate and interrogate him, asking him 10 questions. All of these questions were very targeted or very precise. And they were based on knowledge and experience because your Atlas wasn't just

00:04:14--> 00:04:23

a great military campaigner, and a political leader, a monk. He was also a devout Christian with

00:04:24--> 00:04:28

some knowledge of the Christian scriptures, and Christian history.

00:04:30--> 00:04:40

So his questions were based on this knowledge, and they all revolved around the topic of the messengers and their relationship with their peoples.

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

And the purpose of these questions on this whole interrogation was to determine the veracity of silver law, some of the law labels, some of them as a prophet. So having obtained answers to all 10 questions heraclius then proceed.

00:05:00--> 00:05:16

needed to repeat each question to the audience and actually analyze the answer. So he repeated the question, repeated the answer that he been given. And then he proceeded to analyze the answer.

00:05:17--> 00:05:23

Ultimately, he said, if all that you say is true, then he will soon

00:05:24--> 00:05:41

come to possess the land beneath my feet. And he tacitly admitted that he was a prophet of Allah, and said, I knew he was going to emerge, but I didn't think he would be one of you mean the Arabs. Then he summoned

00:05:42--> 00:05:49

the letter sent by the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam to heraclius, which he had already received before

00:05:50--> 00:06:01

and which he had read, puts away and following which he carried out some investigations, including this interrogation, then he had the letter read out publicly again. And also

00:06:02--> 00:06:11

as far as he was concerned, this was the first time he had knowledge of the letter. And so also piano repeats of the contents of the letter in the head of youth as well.

00:06:12--> 00:06:21

So this is where we ended last week we reach the end of the letter. So to continue from the listener than what was in the in the manual, how do

00:06:23--> 00:06:35

I relate to you with a continuous and uninterrupted chain from me Tell me man will hardly laugh. Who with this chain narrates from I'm delighted my boss from the most of yom Hussein's

00:06:37--> 00:06:41

honorable Sofia, Sofia, phenomena, Allah.

00:06:42--> 00:06:47

Then when heraclius said whatever he said, will follow him in karate.

00:06:49--> 00:06:50

And he

00:06:52--> 00:06:55

completed the reading of the letter,

00:06:56--> 00:06:57

gut flora in the Hassan

00:07:09--> 00:07:11

shouting increased

00:07:13--> 00:07:17

around what the fact is, as well. And

00:07:19--> 00:07:23

voices were raised what originally, and we were rooting

00:07:25--> 00:07:31

for cool, talleres hobby. So I said to my companions, penal originally, when we were removed,

00:07:33--> 00:07:37

also fiance's that once heraclius had finished reading the letter

00:07:39--> 00:07:50

gazzara in the hustle hub, was the fact that as well I mean, there was a great deal and clamor, I just did a literal translation. But the meaning is, there was a great dinner and clamor.

00:07:51--> 00:08:01

And people began shouting, raising their voices, arguing amongst themselves shouting over each other. And in that

00:08:02--> 00:08:03

demon clamor

00:08:05--> 00:08:08

heraclius and his core tears

00:08:09--> 00:08:17

removed all Sophia and his party from the great hall. So they will remove so they did not know what took place thereafter.

00:08:18--> 00:08:24

The reason for the denim clap was simply this, that heraclius

00:08:27--> 00:08:31

was inclined to believe in in Rasul Allah, the law.

00:08:34--> 00:08:37

And I'll say more about this later at the end of it.

00:08:39--> 00:08:41

And he wanted his people

00:08:42--> 00:08:43

to support

00:08:46--> 00:08:48

and he was testing the waters

00:08:50--> 00:08:52

because he wanted the best of both.

00:08:57--> 00:09:01

He was slightly indecisive as far as this issue was concerned, he was insecure.

00:09:04--> 00:09:12

And he wanted the approval of his people their loyalty, he wanted his kingdom

00:09:13--> 00:09:17

and Empire. But at the same time, he also wanted to save his son.

00:09:20--> 00:09:23

So he wanted the best of the life of this world and the life of the hereafter.

00:09:25--> 00:09:27

And he was convinced within

00:09:28--> 00:09:36

that this is the Messenger of Allah salallahu alayhi wa sallam, but practically, whether he should believe or not, he was undecided.

00:09:38--> 00:09:48

And he wanted to see which way his people would go. So rather than being the lead, on this occasion, he wanted to be led by his people.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

And so all of these were measures he didn't even come out openly and say, if you believe and you believe, rather, these were all preliminary measures,

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

Which he adopted to try and somehow goad and coax his people into embracing Islam so that he could do it too.

00:10:10--> 00:10:11

And the peoples didn't realize

00:10:13--> 00:10:14

what he was trying to say.

00:10:16--> 00:10:20

So when he and when the reading of the letter ended,

00:10:21--> 00:10:30

then initially there was silence and suddenly there was a great denim clamor. And in that confusion, also found and his party were removed from the great hall.

00:10:31--> 00:10:50

So, I also found many things for orderly as having no religion. So I said to my companions, once we were removed from the whole and in one narration or hello to be him, and I was included in privacy. Outside the hall with my companions, I said to them, remember he wasn't Muslim then.

00:10:51--> 00:10:53

Amira and Rodney Avi capture?

00:10:54--> 00:10:55


00:10:56--> 00:10:57

I'm Rodney reCAPTCHA.

00:11:00--> 00:11:01


00:11:02--> 00:11:11

for those of you who are studying the Hadees who are familiar with Arabic, Amira, Amro a look at the album.

00:11:12--> 00:11:18

Even AV capture, the affair of the son of double capture

00:11:19--> 00:11:21

has become great indeed.

00:11:23--> 00:11:27

What, what is in Abuja, half in half Melaka vanilla

00:11:30--> 00:11:34

in the verily the king of the road phase,

00:11:35--> 00:11:46

so who Sofia one time, and when he was secluded and privacy with his people, his group, he said to them, look at the Amira. I'm Rodney Abbey, come in who you have who Melaka Bonilla,

00:11:47--> 00:11:54

that, indeed, the affair of the son of a will capture has risen and become great

00:11:55--> 00:11:58

for evenly king of the Roman spheres.

00:12:00--> 00:12:03

First of all, the phrase economic capture, what does he mean by

00:12:05--> 00:12:07

the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa.

00:12:08--> 00:12:11

Here he is referring to the Messenger of Allah Almighty.

00:12:13--> 00:12:17

Why does he call him the son of a mortgage? And who was

00:12:19--> 00:12:28

the Prophet syllable it was mentioned in the reports of the genealogies that I will capture

00:12:29--> 00:12:30

was the

00:12:31--> 00:12:37

maternal grandfather of the maternal grandfather of the sword Allah sallallahu alayhi wa

00:12:39--> 00:12:42

sallam, Abdullah Abdullah

00:12:43--> 00:12:43


00:12:45--> 00:12:45


00:12:49--> 00:12:54

Kira had two sons, one of them was called bossy and the other one was called Tsar

00:12:57--> 00:12:58

a few generations back

00:13:00--> 00:13:09

we'll say he was the one who smashed Makkah from the hoser from the tribe and became the ruler of Mecca.

00:13:14--> 00:13:16

And his brothers Zahara

00:13:18--> 00:13:19

was also from the bench.

00:13:21--> 00:13:28

His ancestors came to be known as abou Zora. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his mother army

00:13:30--> 00:13:31

was the daughter of Webb

00:13:33--> 00:13:34

and she was from the news.

00:13:36--> 00:13:47

So ultimately the prophets of Allah it was someone's lineage and his his his father's lineage Abdullah and his mother's lineage, Amina joined in

00:13:49--> 00:13:50


00:13:52--> 00:13:58

so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his father Abdullah was from the children of Caleb, some will say,

00:14:00--> 00:14:07

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his mother, Amina, was from the children of gulab sins.

00:14:09--> 00:14:19

And this was further back so Mohammed Abdullah Abdullah, Mohammed, the son of Abdullah the son of Adam, the son of Hashem, son of abdomen as the son of a slave.

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

So about five, six generations back.

00:14:23--> 00:14:29

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was from the branch from both his father's

00:14:32--> 00:14:39

paternal side and from his mother's paternal side. However, from his mother's maternal side,

00:14:41--> 00:14:43

province and Lola Heidi who was synonyms.

00:14:45--> 00:14:49

Mother was Amina Her father was one.

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

So in Asian languages refer to the maternal grandfather as manner. So the province of the llama, it was synonyms now

00:15:00--> 00:15:00

I was worried.

00:15:04--> 00:15:04


00:15:10--> 00:15:11

Webb's mother

00:15:14--> 00:15:15

her father's name.

00:15:16--> 00:15:19


00:15:21--> 00:15:25

That was one that was a school year. So the province of the love it was sometimes known as

00:15:27--> 00:15:35

the province of the law. It was someone's maternal grandfather's maternal grandfather. He wasn't from the branch he was from the tribe of Hosea

00:15:36--> 00:15:37


00:15:40--> 00:16:00

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his mother was named Amina. Her father was called Wahab Webb's mother was called ADA. And Baylor's father was one of his many names was a CAPTCHA. So it's just normal name of will capture us from the tribe of husar. Now what we'll capture has done

00:16:01--> 00:16:08

is that in his time, aboard CompTIA went against

00:16:09--> 00:16:29

the British and the rest of the Arabs in that region. And he opposed their religious waves, but he wasn't a monotheist. So instead of worshipping various other idols, he introduced the worship and he was the first person in Arabia to introduce the worship of the Sirius star.

00:16:31--> 00:16:43

The Sirius star is the brightest star in the sky. And that's referred to in sort of the measure. were horrible. Sure, sure, it is the Sirius star. It's the brightest star in the sky. So

00:16:45--> 00:17:13

we'll capture from the husar tribe, who was a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is known as Nana, maternal grandfather's maternal grandfather. He opposed the oration the rest of the Arabs in their worship of various idols and he was the first person to introduce the worship of the Sirius star of the Shangri La star. So because of that the radiation the others, they considered him a heretic

00:17:14--> 00:17:20

because he opposed their religion in other ways. So they regarded him as a heathen and heretic.

00:17:23--> 00:17:26

And after that, what happened? Is

00:17:29--> 00:17:32

anyone else in the family of bubble gum

00:17:35--> 00:17:44

who opposed the orange or that they wanted to nickname or label a heathen or a heretic? They just call them the son of bubble gum.

00:17:45--> 00:17:53

So it became a by word the word the son of bubble gum became a byword for being a heretic and a heathen

00:17:54--> 00:18:00

and that happens sometimes you have a proper name, which then becomes a byword where the hooligan

00:18:01--> 00:18:08

so from the word hooligan even have the verb hooliganism. The word hooligan is actually the name of a family.

00:18:10--> 00:18:38

Now some people say that it's a fictional family, and other state was an actual family, whatever the case, hooligan whether it was a fictional family or a real family. hooligan was a surname of a family, but they were notorious for their violence behavior, and their rowdiness. So you then have the where people began calling anyone else, a hooligan, though they didn't even belong to such a family, and it became a byword for

00:18:39--> 00:19:23

troubles, troublesome rowdy behavior. So you're gonna have a verb hooliganism, same with vandal, vandal, vandalism, vandals where I'm at your tribe from Europe. So this was a proper tribe, the vandals, but then because of the extreme violence, and their warring nature, this the word, the proper name, vandal became a byword for troublesome violent behavior. And then you have the name you even have the noun that well the verbal noun that vandalism. So similarly the summer will capture simply was a by word to refer to someone as a heretic or heathen.

00:19:24--> 00:19:59

And he was also from the ancestors of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So I'm also here and he wasn't a Muslim, he am the rest of the Quran. They would refer to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Muslims as heathens. So they wouldn't say, Muslim or Muslim that he has become a Muslim. They would normally say Subbu. Or if they wanted to ask someone have you become a Muslim, they wouldn't say that slumbered. And have you believed Have you embraced Islam? They brought

00:20:00--> 00:20:11

They're arbitrarily say us about, have you become a heathen? Have you become a slobby? So they would refer to all Muslims as far beyond meaning heathens and heretics.

00:20:12--> 00:20:25

And they, even the prophets of the law, it was certainly they will refer to as a heathen inherited, because as far as they were concerned, he rebelled against he rebelled against their people. And so he's one of his ancestors was a who,

00:20:27--> 00:20:33

who had also rebelled against the regime and the rest of the Arabs in religious worship.

00:20:34--> 00:20:44

They, for them, this was a double derogatory title. So they would refer to the Salma sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as the Son of God.

00:20:45--> 00:21:02

And that's why it also found here again, in a very derogatory manner, say he's a murderer. I'm ruining the captcha. Indeed, the affair of the son of Ganesha has risen and becoming great summit. So in the whole, your half medical benefit,

00:21:03--> 00:21:21

that even the king of the Romans asked for means yellow, which could also mean blonde, which, strictly speaking blonde as a shot, but as far means yellow. So the blue is for the Romans, the Arabs would refer to the

00:21:24--> 00:21:28

Byzantine Romans, and even the Syrians as bundle

00:21:32--> 00:21:45

the yellowish ones or the pale simply the pale ones, so you know who your half millikelvin will ask for that, indeed, the king of the pale ones fears him too. And he's referring to iraklia. So having been driven out of the hole,

00:21:46--> 00:22:04

so to speak, look at the affair of the son of bubble gum, even here at the kingdom, the emperor of the pale faced people, even he is fearful of Muhammad, the son of Abdullah who he derogatory referred to as a son of a will.

00:22:06--> 00:22:11

Then also fiance's remember, he wasn't he was an unbeliever at the time for Malzieu to move. But

00:22:12--> 00:22:17

then I remained convinced, and the wholesale hub

00:22:18--> 00:22:30

that he will become prevalent and dominance meaning the prophets in the LA ecosystem that have had a long rally in Islam, until Allah brought Islam upon me.

00:22:31--> 00:23:07

Also, can he, at that time, this was the seventh year of Hitler. He hadn't yet to embrace of course, his daughter Ramallah, had embraced Islam many years before. In fact, she had emigrated to Habesha as a senior, and she had a daughter called habima. And therefore, not many people know her as Ramallah, the daughter of young people most commonly known as Habiba. But the alarm rang her, one of the wives of the prophets and the law legal system, she was the daughter of also can, now also can

00:23:08--> 00:23:09


00:23:10--> 00:23:15

although he was one of the bitterest opponents of the law, some of the law it was,

00:23:17--> 00:23:25

in fact, even leaving the operation, the Battle of blood and in the Battle of the trench, as we've learned earlier in this heavy

00:23:27--> 00:23:43

he, he was tired of battling with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was a diplomat and he was a trader, and he seemed he was intelligent. He soon realized the futility of opposing the Prophet Sall allottee.

00:23:45--> 00:23:48

And eventually, he mellowed in his opposition.

00:23:49--> 00:23:50


00:23:51--> 00:24:07

gradually became convinced like here as well. He says, from azim to move in, and the whosoever that I was then I remain convinced that he hammered the son of Abdullah Salah, love it, or some of them would become dominant and prevalent, and that conviction remains

00:24:09--> 00:24:13

that Hello, love it and, snowmen to Allah brought Islam upon me.

00:24:15--> 00:24:32

And in fact, in one duration, he says what occurred whilst I was reluctant, so he himself says that I reluctantly embrace and when did he embrace not too long thereafter, on the Knights before the conquest of Mecca,

00:24:35--> 00:24:38

when was sort of lost a lot of our legal system was camped outside

00:24:40--> 00:24:59

the Knights before the conquest, all Sophia was brought to his tent. And there he embraced. Later, however, he did become a very sincere and firm believer, to the extent that not too long after the conquest of Makkah. immediately thereafter, he actually participated

00:25:00--> 00:25:08

In the Battle of her name, and he also participated in the siege of life. And in the season of life, he actually lost one.

00:25:09--> 00:25:11

And then many years later in the Battle of

00:25:14--> 00:25:19

the decisive battle in which the Muslims

00:25:20--> 00:25:22

under the leadership of leadership

00:25:25--> 00:25:37

and the military command of holly who lead for the alarm Marine, when they, despite being outnumbered, and despite being in a foreign country,

00:25:38--> 00:25:50

they managed to defeat the largest Byzantine army assemble. And they didn't just defeat them, the whole army was actually destroyed.

00:25:51--> 00:25:58

And in that battle of your move, which is one of the most decisive battles in the whole of human history.

00:26:00--> 00:26:03

I've also counterpart in that battle, and he actually lost the second

00:26:04--> 00:26:43

in that battle. So later, he was a sincere believer, even though he says that initially, I fell in love it in Islam and in moderation. What am I God, that law brought Islam upon me whilst I was reluctant, which, which doesn't mean that he was a false believer far from it's what it means he still had that reservation. He was reluctant, but he ultimately he was convinced, and despite himself, he did embrace Islam. So he says that I was then I remain convinced after this episode with Iraqis that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would become prevalent and dominant.

00:26:45--> 00:26:48

Here also fiam section of the heavy the end.

00:26:50--> 00:26:52

But one of the narrators of this video

00:26:53--> 00:26:54

below is

00:26:56--> 00:27:09

Mohammed of no Muslim even though she has Zoey. So even though she has zakhary, he continues and says, what kind of novel searchable elior are here often add on a Satoshi.

00:27:11--> 00:27:25

Now, even though she has the M's and duration of the heavy front of all Sofia, and he continues in duration, but from someone else who hasn't been mentioned so far, and who is that person, even a novel? So here's a bit of Marvel

00:27:27--> 00:27:28

Ebro novel,

00:27:29--> 00:27:31

the companion

00:27:32--> 00:27:34

or even in Malibu,

00:27:35--> 00:27:39

the one of Jerusalem of aelia,

00:27:40--> 00:27:42

and the companion of heraclius

00:27:44--> 00:27:49

Ebro, now who was a bishop, a Byzantine Roman Bishop,

00:27:50--> 00:27:56

and he was actually the Bishop of Jerusalem. At one time, he later embraced Islam.

00:27:58--> 00:27:59

And he himself related

00:28:02--> 00:28:03


00:28:04--> 00:28:22

he was a friend and a companion. And one of the core tears of heraclius, the Roman Emperor, and he held a very prominent political and religious position of being the bishop leading Bishop of Jerusalem. So later he embraced Islam. So even now, who says that

00:28:24--> 00:28:36

and they hit up the heraclius kena, Nebula earlier when he came when he arrived at Jerusalem, Yeoman, Ethan. He rose One morning,

00:28:37--> 00:28:38

very ill tempered.

00:28:41--> 00:28:46

Forgot about some of his patriarchs or some of his patricians courtiers told him

00:28:49--> 00:28:52

that we find your

00:28:54--> 00:28:55


00:28:57--> 00:29:00

very strange, very awkward today.

00:29:01--> 00:29:06

Other than the novel, liberal novel continues, what can I hear, what can I

00:29:07--> 00:29:08

have done?

00:29:10--> 00:29:33

And heraclius was a soothsayer who would study the stars for machinists at all. So he said to them, when they asked him in the array to Layla, pain, another pain and a lot of images. Very early this night, I saw when I was studying stars, medical history,

00:29:35--> 00:29:37

the king

00:29:38--> 00:29:40

of the circumcised ones,

00:29:44--> 00:29:48

has risen and become dominant for me, in how to heal.

00:29:50--> 00:29:51

So who

00:29:56--> 00:30:00

circumcised is of these nations on they said to him,

00:30:00--> 00:30:22

lasius 13 only hold that no one circumcised except the Jews. For now you're human. So let their let that let their affair not concern you walk down a llama down in the market. And right so the cities of your empire for your abdomen female yahood that they should slain

00:30:23--> 00:30:25

those Jews who live amongst them

00:30:28--> 00:30:45

for being the man who matter to him. So let me explain so far. As I said earlier, I've also found his narration of the Hadeeth Actually no. And from these words part of the new novel, even though she had a Zoe, who's one of the print pivotal narrators of ahaadeeth.

00:30:46--> 00:30:48

He saves that

00:30:50--> 00:30:51

even on now who

00:30:53--> 00:31:14

he would relate. So this is an original even model. Well, who was even a Marvel In the novel was a bishop of Rome, and a famous leader who then embraced Islam, and he had knowledge of all of these things. And he was also a friend of Heraclitus. So he says one day when heraclius arrived in Jerusalem,

00:31:16--> 00:31:20

and he held coat that he spent some time there and he held court that

00:31:22--> 00:31:24

he awoke one morning

00:31:25--> 00:31:28

and he was very ill tempered.

00:31:29--> 00:31:30

So we set

00:31:31--> 00:31:37

cotton he has said to him, that your disposition is very awkward this morning. What's wrong?

00:31:38--> 00:31:50

So then he relates that last night I saw according some narrations, he saw a dream. According to other narrations, he wasn't just a dream, as he says here, he was actually studying the stars,

00:31:51--> 00:32:26

or the meaning of the narration that he saw a dream was that he was studying the stars. And then in a dream, he saw something which corresponded to the history of the stars, and what did he see? or What did he vision? What was his vision? What was his understanding and reading of the stars, that the king of the circumcised people has risen and has become all powerful and dominant. And that's why he was very ill tempered, because this meant a threat to his kingdom, his throne.

00:32:28--> 00:32:42

Now, when did this thing when did this whole incident actually took place take place? This, the chronology of the chronology is a bit confusing, and the positioning of the words in the Hadith are all slightly slightly confusing. So let me explain.

00:32:45--> 00:32:53

heraclius most likely, whilst he was campaigning against the society, Persians,

00:32:54--> 00:32:56

he was unaware of the profits of the law.

00:33:03--> 00:33:09

Once he had defeated, and the court secured a decisive victory over the Persians,

00:33:10--> 00:33:29

since it was a religious Christian as a religious man, a devout Christian, he ascribed this these, the series of victories to God. So in order to pay homage to God, and to perform the pilgrimage, and to celebrate his victories, he made a pilgrimage on foot to Jerusalem.

00:33:31--> 00:33:39

So he then arrived at Jerusalem, Jerusalem, what was the religious capital, but it wasn't the political capital.

00:33:40--> 00:33:45

So he arrived in Jerusalem being the Emperor, he had his royal court royal palace there to

00:33:46--> 00:33:50

once he was resident in Jerusalem for a while.

00:33:51--> 00:33:53

A number of things happen.

00:33:54--> 00:33:54


00:33:56--> 00:33:59

he was studying the stars, as he would regularly do.

00:34:00--> 00:34:07

And he saw a dream or he surmised and concluded from his astrology

00:34:08--> 00:34:11

that the king of the circumcised people

00:34:13--> 00:34:20

has risen. So that's the first thing. The second thing that happened is that the

00:34:22--> 00:34:23

assignee King,

00:34:26--> 00:34:26

an error,

00:34:27--> 00:34:32

but a vassal of the Romans and an ally of heraclius.

00:34:34--> 00:34:41

He had dispatched the messenger informing heraclius about the loss of love, it was something

00:34:44--> 00:34:52

so it seems that this is the first time he had actually learned about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, by name as an individual.

00:34:53--> 00:34:55

So this was the second thing that happened.

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

The third thing that happened was he was stationed in Jerusalem.

00:35:01--> 00:35:02

Is that

00:35:05--> 00:35:11

he received the letter of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent by date and can be

00:35:13--> 00:35:21

sent with it will can be a real big alarm. So there it will be, it'll be your loved one came and delivered the last. This was the third thing that happened.

00:35:23--> 00:35:48

So because of these three things, first, he was studying the stars, he dabbled in astrology. And as a result of his astrology, call studies, and possibly also because of a dream and a vision. He generally knew vaguely, that a 10th of an insert of a circumcised people has written

00:35:50--> 00:35:51

that was very vague.

00:35:52--> 00:36:00

And this is what we are learning about here. The second thing that happened was a bit more specific. The attorney king

00:36:03--> 00:36:24

who was is Allah, and who was an Arab and who had learned about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he dispatched a messenger with details of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself. So now he was able to specify who this person was. And he learned more about the prophets and the love it was in them, but it still wasn't that much.

00:36:25--> 00:36:36

Then he received the letter. And the letter is the one we studied last week. Now you really wanted to find out. This is why he then sent for all Sofia.

00:36:38--> 00:37:13

And he didn't know Abu Sufyan impersonal by name, he just said, do we have any of these Arabs in our land, who know about this person, Mohammed, the son of Abdullah, so his forces told him that possibly. So he said, turn the whole empire inside out, until you find me someone who is familiar with and who has knowledge of this person who claims to be a prophet. That's the next thing that happened. So who Sophia was, the search party was sent out of all Sofia was located, and he and his

00:37:14--> 00:37:15

companions were brought.

00:37:17--> 00:37:19

So what's happened in the narration of this

00:37:20--> 00:37:23

is, we've learned about the fourth thing,

00:37:25--> 00:37:26

which is

00:37:27--> 00:37:29

messengers being dispatched.

00:37:31--> 00:37:42

And search parties being sent out to locate Arabs from South Arabia, who knew the Prophet was central Arabia who knew the prophets of Allah.

00:37:43--> 00:37:46

So the fourth thing, that's where the Hadith begins with.

00:37:49--> 00:38:30

And that's the narration of Abu Sufyan. It makes sense because Abdullah Abbas of the law of Angola, he relates Hadees from Abu Sofia and Abu sufian. His knowledge was only this much his own experience. So he relates the story from the time that he was located in Gaza, and hall to the Royal Court of heraclius. And then he relates his whole experience and historian, then even though she has every one of the new rates of the heavy, having concluded the narration of abuse of young, he then takes us back right to the beginning.

00:38:31--> 00:38:32

Before points for

00:38:34--> 00:38:36

2.32 and one.

00:38:37--> 00:38:41

And he does so from the narration of ebenen. Now who

00:38:42--> 00:38:56

and who was able to Nauvoo, even now who was a first hand knowledge and experience on this, because he was actually a friend and a companion of heraclius. And he was one of his core tears, and not only that he was also the Bishop of Jerusalem.

00:38:58--> 00:39:11

So taking us back right to the beginning. He says that when Iraqis arrived at Jerusalem, this is long before the story, but also he woke up one day

00:39:12--> 00:39:16

and he was very ill tempered very irksome.

00:39:18--> 00:39:27

So we said to him that you are a very awkward and strange disposition this morning, what's wrong? So he actually has said to them, that last night

00:39:28--> 00:39:35

while I was studying the stars, I saw that the king of

00:39:36--> 00:39:39

the circumcised people has risen.

00:39:41--> 00:39:47

Now this bothered him. That's all he knew, or that's all he thought. That's all he summarized. So he's, for me, yes.

00:39:49--> 00:39:50


00:39:51--> 00:39:52

who circumcised

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

of these nations score tears who didn't know any better they said to him.

00:40:00--> 00:40:02

The Jews are circumcised people.

00:40:04--> 00:40:26

So if you are worried that the King of the Jews has risen, circumcise people, and that they will overthrow your kingdom, then his courtiers told him that do not let their affair bother you or concern you too much, because they are in a minority, if you are really concerned solution to this would be to send out

00:40:28--> 00:40:35

forces to all your cities and message to all your cities in the Empire, and tell them to capture and kill

00:40:37--> 00:40:45

all the circumcised people meaning the Jews. So that's what his royal courtiers told him. This is similar to what Pharaoh did.

00:40:50--> 00:41:16

Then, even a novel continues, that we've covered that so far for being American America, Americans. So this was point number one, this was the first thing that ever happened. You were studying the stars. And he came to the conclusion that the kingdom the circumcised people has risen. Again, it's a very vague thing. Now, before I continue, how is a scholar documented she has a story on the famous narrator's

00:41:18--> 00:41:22

relating from Evelyn malabu, who himself had embraced Islam.

00:41:23--> 00:41:25

And how can we find in the hadith of

00:41:26--> 00:41:28

an aeration of this nature?

00:41:29--> 00:41:30


00:41:33--> 00:41:34

astrology is mentioned

00:41:36--> 00:41:50

and this seems to suggest that what it says here activators are studying the stars, he was dabbling in astrology, and he came to the conclusion or he surmised that the king of the circumcised people has a

00:41:53--> 00:41:56

very vague knowledge, but some knowledge at least.

00:41:57--> 00:42:02

How was he able to conclude this? through astrology? And surely

00:42:04--> 00:42:14

all these paranormal and supernatural means of communication and learning are all faults.

00:42:16--> 00:42:18

We learn about this from the heavy

00:42:19--> 00:42:25

in many verses of the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions about the theme and the gym

00:42:26--> 00:42:33

who would try to snatch details of the conversation of the angels

00:42:34--> 00:42:38

guillaumin stirred up a summer in London Huntsville hopper

00:42:42--> 00:42:44

except one who smashes the snatching

00:42:46--> 00:42:48

except one who steals

00:42:50--> 00:42:53

a hearing some conversation some snippets.

00:42:56--> 00:43:04

So what what was what is all this referring to the province of the law, which means this in some detail in a number of Howdy,

00:43:05--> 00:43:07

including in Mojave,

00:43:08--> 00:43:19

that the gin and the shell theme would attempt to listen in to the conversation of the angels and the affairs of the heavens

00:43:24--> 00:43:25

and they continue to do so.

00:43:26--> 00:43:30

But they are unable to gain much

00:43:32--> 00:43:48

so they catch snippets with great strange hearing they are able to snatch bits here and there. They then Leisha Dean and Jin then communicate this snatch the information

00:43:50--> 00:43:50

to their

00:43:52--> 00:43:56

earlier and their friends and their fellows amongst the in some also he

00:43:58--> 00:44:03

and they pass it on to them and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says they add 100 lized.

00:44:05--> 00:44:08

So you have one truth and 100 laughs

00:44:10--> 00:44:14

as a result of which, when these soothsayers

00:44:15--> 00:44:17

and astrologers

00:44:20--> 00:44:20

and the

00:44:22--> 00:44:26

fortune tellers, we're not just talking about the

00:44:27--> 00:44:35

those who just dabble in astrology or fortune telling as a hobby we're talking about the more serious ones, the ones who

00:44:37--> 00:44:43

are well versed and experienced in it, and who actually dabbled in sorcery

00:44:44--> 00:44:45

and in suicide.

00:44:48--> 00:44:50

They have a connection with the gym in the shower.

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

And what these gentlemen shardene do is that they pass on this snatch information to them which is minimal and they add 100 lines.

00:45:00--> 00:45:00


00:45:02--> 00:45:04

and when they share this information with the people

00:45:06--> 00:45:13

out of 101 times they do get it right once and even then not entirely but partially.

00:45:14--> 00:45:17

It's it tends to be very vague and partial.

00:45:18--> 00:45:34

And an example is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself, which I mentioned at the beginning, that was sort of learning who stood out was the Nam went and see that out of the land. And to search for it will say, yeah, it will say yeah, it was really strange figure.

00:45:35--> 00:45:39

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was creeping up to him slowly.

00:45:41--> 00:45:49

He was actually stealthily creeping up to him. And his mother saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was in a hammock,

00:45:50--> 00:45:58

lying down, humming to himself, murmuring himself. So she shares it out saying that Muhammad's here.

00:45:59--> 00:46:09

So he the problem, so the element of surprise had been lost. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then came to Him. And He said to him, What do you see?

00:46:13--> 00:46:25

And then he said to him that own the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I'm going to think of a word. It's actually a narration of it's an authentic narration. I'm going to think of a word and I want you to tell me what it is.

00:46:27--> 00:46:30

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually thought of the word.

00:46:33--> 00:46:40

Aware from the poor and the harm in smoke or mist. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thought in his mind,

00:46:42--> 00:46:44

and he was a child at the time he was asleep.

00:46:45--> 00:46:48

And he said to the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam,

00:46:49--> 00:46:50

da da, half

00:46:52--> 00:46:56

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, for them Bandol

00:46:57--> 00:47:00

that wobm to be

00:47:01--> 00:47:05

despicable, for you will never go beyond your station.

00:47:06--> 00:47:38

And then say, then I might have the alarm and sets in Yarra sort of law, as he was, would always do, Grant me permission, that any sort of law grants me permission, or messenger of Allah, followed by his well known phrase, allow me to strike off his head. So the province and malachite ecosystem said no, he said, if he isn't the job, then there's no need to harm him. And if he is, then you won't be able to harm him. Now, this was a very strange figure, he actually was in Medina.

00:47:39--> 00:47:45

And it's mentioned that once after the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he grew into an adult,

00:47:48--> 00:47:49

he was once

00:47:50--> 00:47:53

traveling with someone returning from Makkah.

00:47:55--> 00:48:01

And he was, people would be very wary of him that say, Be cautious of him, even though say,

00:48:02--> 00:48:03


00:48:04--> 00:48:32

no one would travel with him, no one would spend time with him, no one would stay in his company. And he just been for pilgrimage to Makkah. So on the way back, one part, one person says I felt very sorry for him. So he cuts a lonely figure. And I felt that he was very oppressed and unjustly treated by everybody else. So I decided to spend some time with him. So I was out with him, he was

00:48:34--> 00:49:23

playing his violin, to say, I'm complaining of his ill treatment at the hands of everybody else. And seeing people accused me of being the journal and people accuse me of being this. And how can that be? I am sincere, given the prophets The lilavati was seldom say he would never be able to enter Medina, he would never be able to enter Mugu. And look, I've just come from MCI live in Medina, I have children, I have a family, and so on. So the narrator says, viola, I feel so sorry for him. And I was convinced that he's speaking the truth. And he is hard done by and everyone has treated him unjustly. And then after this whole leg of the conversation when he had won him over, and he was

00:49:23--> 00:49:34

very sympathetic and pitiful towards him. He then suddenly started saying that, but I'll tell you one thing, though, if I was made the offer of being the judge, I would accept.

00:49:35--> 00:49:43

So this says, Biola, he confused me. And I decided to abandon him. So he left.

00:49:44--> 00:49:50

But the same people will say yeah, but he was a child. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam approached him and he said, What do you see?

00:49:51--> 00:49:56

And then he said to him, I'm thinking of a word. What is it? So the word was

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

he couldn't catch the whole word, but he caught him.

00:50:00--> 00:50:07

Have it. He actually said, Imagine this, he read the mind of the prophets of the law and he was an impartial.

00:50:08--> 00:50:08

So he said,

00:50:10--> 00:50:32

half the world. And this is what happens. And this is why if you look into it, sometimes people are able to figure out certain things. I don't want to mislead you, I don't want to create any confusion. I'm one of the first people to say that be extremely careful about these things. The truth is, we have to strike a balance.

00:50:34--> 00:50:43

And the balance is that we accept that in the Quran. And in the Hadees, there is clear and cut there is a clear and categorical mention of,

00:50:44--> 00:50:47

of sorcery, of the jinn of the shrine

00:50:48--> 00:50:55

of the jinn. And the Shia been communicating with their compatriots from amongst him.

00:50:57--> 00:50:58

Up bag,

00:51:01--> 00:51:02

they communicate with one

00:51:07--> 00:51:08

even in sort of the nurse,

00:51:10--> 00:51:17

a lot teaches us to seek refuge in the human seeks protection from and what's worse,

00:51:19--> 00:51:22

mineral jimothy, one man's from both amongst the men and

00:51:23--> 00:51:27

so there are these shall be misogyny will ensue from both men and animals.

00:51:28--> 00:51:39

So there are instances of sale, there are instances of aim, meaning that even though there are instances of

00:51:40--> 00:51:45

the sharpener in the gym communicating with the inmates with the with people.

00:51:46--> 00:51:49

And undoubtedly, there are

00:51:50--> 00:51:59

there is a correlation between these things. And at times, they will hit them off. There's a saying in Arabic roquebrune, Yeti minerais, Raman or bromine.

00:52:01--> 00:52:04

Which means there is many an arrow shot

00:52:05--> 00:52:07

from a non Archer.

00:52:08--> 00:52:09

Meaning sometimes

00:52:10--> 00:52:30

if someone's shooting 100 arrows, and they are completely helpless archery, maybe it's their first attempt out of 100 arrows and we still hit the target once. So Rob roomier later on, there is often there is an arrow that hits a target, even from an arch.

00:52:32--> 00:52:43

So this is the balance, we can't deny any of this. But at the same time, we have to realize and this is hopefully a reassurance that it's extremely rare. This is very rare.

00:52:44--> 00:52:45

It's extremely rare.

00:52:47--> 00:52:53

So there are some instances. But they are extremely rare. And we have to remember,

00:52:57--> 00:53:06

even if you look at the world of dreams, you have three types of dreams. And I'll just be very quick. You have good dreams that are indeed from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:53:07--> 00:53:11

And you have bad dreams that are from the shell.

00:53:14--> 00:53:15

And then in between,

00:53:16--> 00:53:30

you have dreams that are neither from neither a good dream from Allah subhanho wa Taala, nor a bad dream from the shouting, but they are just a reflection of our own thoughts, feelings and emotions.

00:53:32--> 00:53:33

This is the majority.

00:53:35--> 00:53:45

Good dreams genuinely good dreams are a minority. And genuinely bad dreams from Iblees from the shouting are a minority. Remember,

00:53:46--> 00:53:53

same with these instances of a variety of other things. These things can happen.

00:53:54--> 00:53:57

Because he mentioned in the Quran in the heavy, but they are rare.

00:53:58--> 00:54:08

On the other hand, most of our conditions and our fears have simple daily medical or psychological explanations.

00:54:10--> 00:54:12

And we have to be very careful about this.

00:54:17--> 00:54:18

Unfortunately, this has

00:54:19--> 00:54:30

gone beyond job in our communities. And every single problem is diagnosed as a case of sorcery

00:54:31--> 00:54:34

or Alain, the evil.

00:54:38--> 00:54:39

And he always seems to be a family member.

00:54:42--> 00:54:42

Back home

00:54:46--> 00:55:00

and it's terrible. It may be a laughing matter but in that Allahu in a larger home, I would advise and caution people and the listeners to be very wary of this and to come

00:55:00--> 00:55:08

sold the roller man. And even when I say roller man, consult those are all a man who don't dabble in this themselves.

00:55:10--> 00:55:11

It's a very serious thing.

00:55:13--> 00:55:14

Have you ever wondered,

00:55:16--> 00:55:16

why is it

00:55:18--> 00:55:24

that people who believe in Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:55:25--> 00:56:00

who, even though they may not be fully observant and other things, at least maintain their Bahar and their ritual purity? Who do not stay in the state of Janab, and major ritual impurity? Have you ever wondered? Why is it that almost every single one of them if we were to look at the statistics in the community, how almost all I would say most of them are afflicted by something to do with sick, and my aim there is so sorcery and gin unsharp. And yet, on the other hand,

00:56:01--> 00:56:20

you have those who have no concept of ritual purity, no concept of the heart, and who are in the state of job all the time, and who do not abstain from the other things and impurities, that Allah has also Lola, Heidi who have a bit

00:56:23--> 00:56:25

How come? They are never afflict?

00:56:27--> 00:56:29

No gene ever seems to affect them.

00:56:30--> 00:56:32

They never seem to be the victim of anything.

00:56:34--> 00:56:37

In most cases, and it's been my personal experience.

00:56:39--> 00:56:46

I don't wish to reveal details, but some of them are hilarious, where someone suffering from a genuine medical condition

00:56:48--> 00:56:49

or a psychological condition.

00:56:51--> 00:56:55

They go to the doctor's or go to the hospital. And

00:56:56--> 00:57:03

either there's a misdiagnosis or there's a failure at diagnosing the medical problem in its early stage.

00:57:05--> 00:57:16

And in their desperation, people go or take them to some faith healer, some soothsayer, some guide, in that

00:57:21--> 00:57:29

this is the only How can I proceed to use financial language. It's the only financial sector of the economy

00:57:31--> 00:57:38

where the supplier instantly creates the demand out of thin air and then provides the supply.

00:57:40--> 00:57:42

It's a win win situation.

00:57:45--> 00:57:46

Even beats the oldest profession.

00:57:51--> 00:58:09

So person's got a simple medical condition and the soothsayer the guardian or the Sahil or the faith healer says to them, I will you have a problem? Yes. And the problem is Jin Chow de

00:58:10--> 00:58:29

sorcery, someone close to you has done it. And this is the seed of doubt that may plant in your mind. And in fact, this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in sort of the maps will are although there have been mass Mulliken NASA in nazmi shovel was worse in

00:58:31--> 00:58:46

the US with so few solute in mineral jilla tea, which is that we seek refuge in Allah and His protection from who, from ensuring was versatile calmness from the evil of the worse was the whisper.

00:58:49--> 00:59:00

The retreating whisper for nurse means to retreat. the operative word cheating foul, see a little MOBA. It's a superlative.

00:59:01--> 00:59:48

Alternative exaggerated. So a nurse means someone who excessively retrieves supports immediately, excessively, retreats. This means that off retreating whisperer, so what From who? Only from the gym, no mineral agenda to one national walks the gym and men. So what they do is that they come forward, they whisper something and they quickly retreat. They come back, they whisper something and they quickly retreat. So they move forward, plant a seed of doubt, and retreat. And that's all anyone needs to do plant a seed of doubt. So come forward, whisper something, and they retreat. And then the seed does its work. So they plant a seed of doubt. You're suffering from the effects of gin

00:59:48--> 00:59:51

or sorcery. And then we go away.

00:59:52--> 00:59:55

That seed germinates,

00:59:56--> 00:59:59

grows burse flourishes,

01:00:00--> 01:00:19

And it's not just a sequel seagull stalker a stem, the person who planted a seed of doubt and CEO of a whole forest of dams. And they are they are the ones who planted the seed of doubt. And then they they, they then claim that we will provide the solution we will provide the cure.

01:00:20--> 01:00:22

Of course, that's a great charge.

01:00:25--> 01:00:29

And sometimes people say, oh, but they do it for free. They do it for free.

01:00:32--> 01:00:36

pounds, pennies, dollars and cents,

01:00:37--> 01:00:38


01:00:40--> 01:00:42

Money is money, but ultimately, it's just occurrence.

01:00:45--> 01:00:46

Let me tell you,

01:00:48--> 01:00:51

some people, they look beyond money,

01:00:53--> 01:00:54

but they still look at currents.

01:00:55--> 01:01:02

Money is currency in that allows you to purchase to wield influence to wield power.

01:01:05--> 01:01:09

If someone can capture your heart, or capture your man,

01:01:11--> 01:01:13

tell him if you approach them.

01:01:15--> 01:01:17

And they are able to win you over.

01:01:19--> 01:01:25

And they can capture your mind and capture your heart. And they can enslave you mentally and emotionally.

01:01:28--> 01:01:35

Is that worth more to them? was even 10,000 pounds worth more to them? Even 100,000 watts worth more.

01:01:36--> 01:01:41

If they can secure 100 pounds of your money, that's 100 pounds of currency.

01:01:43--> 01:01:48

But if they can capture your heart and your imagination and slave your mind, then

01:01:49--> 01:01:56

you your money, your possessions, your wealth, your heart, your mind and your very being now belongs to

01:01:58--> 01:02:00

men is just a currency.

01:02:02--> 01:02:13

And currencies come in the form of wealth, power, influence, devotion, love, and even religion.

01:02:16--> 01:02:19

So be aware. So even if someone says he doesn't take any money,

01:02:21--> 01:02:23

that means these are the sharper ones.

01:02:29--> 01:02:37

This is another topic I do not wish to devolves any more time to this, but please, one of the reasons why I speak about this is Superman last.

01:02:38--> 01:02:41

The amount of damage that does that I have seen

01:02:43--> 01:02:44

people peat,

01:02:45--> 01:02:52

rather flippantly, they actually say, someone's cast a spell on

01:02:53--> 01:03:04

and it's a family member in Nagila who in early harar, during the person goes away, and then starts quit having suspicions about every single family.

01:03:06--> 01:03:10

This is how they divide husband and wife, brother from brother

01:03:12--> 01:03:24

from nothing. And I started by mentioning about failure to diagnose at an early stage or a misdiagnosis. If the person persists to seek medical advice, eventually they do.

01:03:25--> 01:03:34

Discover the actual correct diagnosis. And the real problem. Maybe it's late stage, and all of the previous

01:03:35--> 01:03:36

suspicions I invent.

01:03:40--> 01:03:42

So here coming back to the heading.

01:03:44--> 01:03:48

Without data, there is an element of truth to this. And that's what happened with

01:03:49--> 01:03:51

collectors. Now.

01:03:53--> 01:04:08

He had vague information just like him say, Yeah, I don't know half a word. And as the province of the law, it says in the speaker, the other party that they mix 100 truths, sorry, 100 lies with one truth

01:04:09--> 01:04:12

and this wisdom, influence and believe people believe them.

01:04:14--> 01:04:25

So why is this headed wise, as mentioned in the hadith of us all in the Hadith, and quite simply what the heart is trying to show and what we are trying to illustrate is not that

01:04:28--> 01:04:59

this is something to be relied on, rather than even those who dabbled in astrology at that time. All the signs were converging about the emergence of a sort of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam signs on the ground signs and people's visions, and even those who dabbled in hard sciences such as astrology, they were discovering vague signs about the emergence of a sort of law, some of the love it was sort of where did this come from this crazy

01:05:00--> 01:05:05

This came from Lee sharp Dean who mixed one truth with 100 lines.

01:05:06--> 01:05:48

Anyway to continue for baynton shot level of complete idea today for being a man for being the man who murdered American. So even a man who continues after mentioning point number one about the vision and the astrological signs of heraclius. This is point number two, for being a man who matter to him. So while he was still engaged in this affair, or do not want to be originally, a man was brought to heraclius I was going to be here medical, which the king of her son had sent your mirror uncovered. So the law is a law sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informing him about the new use of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for about a year or so when he heraclius inquired of

01:05:48--> 01:05:54

him. All he said, is herbal go from rural and see and what that

01:05:55--> 01:06:02

is he circumcised or not from? La he's had the full button the home. So they

01:06:03--> 01:06:23

searched him and all they inspected him. And they then informed heraclius that he was circumstance was the Allahu Allah Arab. And he questioned this messenger about the arrows for all so he said he after the moon, they also circumcise for Karla hit up. So heraclius said her the walco her the hill.

01:06:24--> 01:07:02

This is the empire of this nation that has a risk. This was point number two. Point number one was the vision connected to the strategical study of Iraqis. He had a vague idea that a king of the circumcise people has risen. Once they were discussed, he was discussing this with his core tears in that period, maybe not immediately. But in that time during that time. His Dasani an ally, the king of the Hassan Arabs was an Arab himself, who had learned about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sent a messenger to heraclius. Now remember, these were Arabs,

01:07:03--> 01:07:08

in the area known of Syria and Jordan today, this is where the sun is where.

01:07:10--> 01:07:29

So when this messenger came, he informed heraclius from his king that the Sun King about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he actually has said to his courtiers, inspect him and see if he is circumcised and inspected him and he was circumcised, just like the rest of the Arabs. So

01:07:31--> 01:07:51

he then questioned him about the Arabs in general. And then learning more about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the Arabs in general, he said, this is the Empire of the Arabs that has risen again, he didn't know too much about the Prophet sallallahu sallam, that was point number two.

01:07:53--> 01:08:00

Point number three, he received a letter from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then

01:08:03--> 01:08:04

point number four

01:08:07--> 01:08:21

of all Sofia has summoned all Sophia. Now point number five. Something else happened after about Sophia. And this is the final part of the heading and going through all of this in detail because if you read that Eve

01:08:25--> 01:08:26

when I can't say you, but

01:08:30--> 01:08:33

some people may not understand the chronology.

01:08:34--> 01:08:57

Now as a final part, and this part is all mentioned together, this part is point number five taking place, even after abuse of yarn. So what is that point? Thelma katha hirato ella sloshy been local bulimia. Then heraclius wrote a letter to his companion and friend in Rome, actual Rome in Italy,

01:08:58--> 01:09:16

which was the capital of the western half of the Roman Empire. What cannon Alito who fell in and he was his equal in knowledge was Sarah hirako, Illa hymns and heraclius March two hips hims was traditionally known as a master

01:09:18--> 01:09:21

the city of hymns were in Syria

01:09:22--> 01:09:32

for them yet him himself. So he remained in the in the muscle at that at that hockey web slash, until a letter arrived from his friend in

01:09:34--> 01:09:37

Rome. It said that his name was the heart if

01:09:38--> 01:09:38

you want

01:09:41--> 01:09:44

to be a Salalah alayhi wa sallam, what unohana be

01:09:45--> 01:09:53

agreeing with heraclius his opinion about the emergence of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that he is a prophet.

01:10:01--> 01:10:44

So have we inserted so far? right at the beginning point number one which has mentioned towards the end of the heading heraclius sort of dream related to, or it was just a vision and his own surmising and conclusion based on his astrology astrological study, too. He received a messenger sent from the Hassan he came, first vague information, then a bit more information about the Arabs. Third, he received a letter from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, sent with Devon Kennedy, for his summoned abou Sofia. And that's the first that's the first part of the heading. And then this is finally after having discussed with a boss, he then left Jerusalem.

01:10:46--> 01:11:00

It seems as though he left Jerusalem after he saw the dream and also right after his surmising, and his astrology study and his receiving the messenger. Now this was later after his interrogation of Abu Sofia.

01:11:01--> 01:11:08

He then left Jerusalem, in fact, never to come back, never to come back, either left Jerusalem.

01:11:10--> 01:11:12

And then he marched to

01:11:14--> 01:11:45

hips. Why did he go to him? Remember, he had come to Jerusalem on pilgrimage hymns, known as a master, traditionally was a city that was even larger and more important politically and militarily and politically and militarily, then even Damascus. So it was actually his capital is capital wasn't Damascus, his capital was in Syria, hence known as a master. So that's where he went after leaving Jerusalem.

01:11:46--> 01:11:58

There based on his whole experience, or even after his conversation with Abu Sufyan within he was convinced he was convinced that the prophets of Allah Paddington's messenger of Allah,

01:12:00--> 01:12:21

he still couldn't come to believe. So what do you then did is that he had a fellow, a friend and a companion in the city of Rome, in western of the Western empire in Italy. He wrote to him explaining everything about all his experiences, and his own conclusions. So this was a knowledgeable person, the heart

01:12:22--> 01:12:22


01:12:24--> 01:12:58

the heart there, wrote back to him and agreed with him and with his analysis, that everything that he has spoken on, leads you to conclude, and I agree with your conclusion that this man hammered the son of Abdullah that Abu Sufyan spoke to you of that you have learned about, he is the king of the Arabs, the circumcised people, and he is not the he is not just their leader, but he is the Prophet of Allah. And the signs are all clear that this is a time for the emergence of the final messenger. And it says he,

01:13:00--> 01:13:19

the rub there is not mentioned here, the heart then actually came out in Rome. And he began preaching to the people. So embrace the message of the prophets of Allah. It was never had many details. But he was telling people that a messenger a messenger has emerged,

01:13:20--> 01:13:21

a messenger has emerged.

01:13:23--> 01:13:31

So this actually tells us that the news of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reached Rome and Western Europe

01:13:32--> 01:13:35

during his time, not just after.

01:13:37--> 01:13:38

So he began preaching.

01:13:39--> 01:13:43

Unfortunately, his own people sets upon him, and they killed.

01:13:44--> 01:13:46

So the heart embrace

01:13:47--> 01:13:55

Islam, but unfortunately was killed. And he was a companion that has been referred to here in Rome, or up to her Atlas.

01:13:57--> 01:14:20

Then what happened? When he received the letter from his companion in him she was waiting there. And he remained in hims. When he received the letter heraclius was pushed further to actually embrace Ruby was struggling in his own soul in his heart. So what did he do for a Vienna hirako they are the man in whom he the skeleton, the who became so heraclius them,

01:14:22--> 01:14:46

granted an audience to the great dignitaries of run of Byzantine wrong in huge hole of his in hemps. So again, like in Jerusalem here and even larger, Royal Hall in the capital, he granted an audience to all the great and grand and the powerful of the Byzantine Roman Empire one

01:14:47--> 01:14:48

and this is what he did.

01:14:49--> 01:14:51

Some are a bit above behalf of Holika.

01:14:53--> 01:14:55

He then instructed

01:14:56--> 01:14:59

that the doors of this great hall

01:15:00--> 01:15:01

should be locked shut.

01:15:04--> 01:15:06

Then he appeared to them from above.

01:15:07--> 01:15:31

So it was some sort of grand hall where he didn't appear to them in their mitts, but rather he summon them, and there was a great hall. Once they have all assembled even though he was the Emperor and the mightiest Emperor at the time, he ordered that all the doors should be shut unlocked. Then he appeared to them from above in protection.

01:15:35--> 01:15:43

Then he appeared. For all He then said, Yamaha Yamaha, showroom, or assembly of Roman

01:15:44--> 01:16:11

looking through philosophy, what a rush, listen to his words, let them fill for lack of a rush. Think of this imagine the scene. This is the Royal hole in the capital, political and military capital of a massive This is correctly as the Byzantine Roman Emperor, who is the mightiest and recognized as such the mightiest emperor of the greatest power at the time.

01:16:13--> 01:16:14

And here he is some of

01:16:16--> 01:16:18

the greatest of his people,

01:16:19--> 01:16:38

the bishops, the clergyman, the patriarchs, the dignitaries, the military generals, and they all assembled in this hall, he has a door's locked in he appears to them from above. And he is actually addressing them in the following manner. He says hi, looking through flashy one wash.

01:16:39--> 01:16:48

But do you have any interest and any zeal in true success? And in guidance, what are you what the wool cooker

01:16:49--> 01:16:50

and that your

01:16:52--> 01:16:53


01:16:54--> 01:16:55

should last?

01:16:57--> 01:17:00

If so, for the year who happen to be

01:17:03--> 01:17:06

in that you should pledge allegiance to this province.

01:17:09--> 01:17:12

hassel Heiser, the homeowner in Washington.

01:17:14--> 01:17:28

So they the whole crowd assembled crowd and we're not talking about the mob or the populace. We're talking about the dignitaries and the generals and the elites of the whole Byzantine Roman Empire. hassle haste authority.

01:17:29--> 01:17:43

So they bolted, like the bolting of wild assets to the doors like wild donkeys, braying and chanting and screaming they bolted and fled towards the doors for

01:17:44--> 01:17:48

the woodland. So they found them to be locked.

01:17:49--> 01:17:51

Now why did they bolt to the doors?

01:17:54--> 01:17:59

cursory reading would suggest that they hated the message so much they just wanted to run out.

01:18:01--> 01:18:02

That wasn't the case.

01:18:04--> 01:18:07

They could have just said, we're not interest.

01:18:10--> 01:18:15

Like there was didn't clamor in Jerusalem after the reading of the letter

01:18:16--> 01:18:23

in front of Abu Sufyan when they were driven out, he was there on his throne with his crown. What did the dignitaries do then?

01:18:26--> 01:18:32

And in fact, that was a bit more dangerous because they were the religious leaders, the bishops in Jerusalem.

01:18:36--> 01:18:40

It was great dinner and clamor, there was shouting, but nothing happened.

01:18:41--> 01:18:53

Because he didn't actually invite them to Islam. All he did was have the letter read out. He did it in a very intelligent manner. He was trying to win them over without actually saying anything here.

01:18:54--> 01:18:58

Much later, since he was now convinced that he is a prophet of Allah.

01:18:59--> 01:19:03

And remember what I said earlier initially, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam centum the letter?

01:19:05--> 01:19:25

Have you understood, then, that following the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam would have meant the securing of his kingdom. He realizes himself later now he was convinced that he is a prophet of Allah, his companion had wrote to him everything pointed to it, and he was inclined to believe he really wanted to believe he did.

01:19:27--> 01:19:28

He wanted to believe.

01:19:30--> 01:19:38

But here, what does he do? He doesn't just read out letters or have letters read out. He actually invites them personally.

01:19:39--> 01:19:43

But because this was a dangerous thing to do, what did he do?

01:19:44--> 01:19:46

He gathered all of them in the hall.

01:19:47--> 01:19:53

And he made sure that he wasn't in their mitts, but he was above on a balcony.

01:19:55--> 01:19:59

And he had the doors locked. What did he fear this wasn't some

01:20:00--> 01:20:01

Brain mob.

01:20:02--> 01:20:13

These were the elite. This was the elite. These were his generals and his dignitaries and core tears. The truth is he feared for his life, just like the heart that had lost enlightened role

01:20:14--> 01:20:33

when he preached, so now he was actually going to invite them to Islam. So he did it in a manner that would ensure his privacy and security. So he appeared from the top make sure the doors were bolted, when they bolted like wild assets to the doors, it's because some of them wanted to go for him.

01:20:36--> 01:20:43

So when they found the doors to be bolted, they turn around, and they were still angry. They was seething with anger, they wanted to kill him.

01:20:45--> 01:20:46

So what did he say?

01:20:47--> 01:20:51

Phil and Mara are here up on the throttle. So many Iraqis saw their

01:20:54--> 01:20:55


01:20:56--> 01:20:57

What are you sending an email?

01:20:59--> 01:21:06

And he despaired of their belief or belief whose belief he despaired of their belief and his own belief?

01:21:08--> 01:21:58

That's why the word he despaired our belief, their belief and his own belief, all he said, merrily return them to me. What all and then he said, again, from above, in the commodity, and if I said, I made my statement just now, why it'll be harsh that the commodity income merely in order to Taos testing, I only said what I said, so that I could test your firmness and steadfastness on your religion, further aid now that I've seen how steadfast you are. So I've seen that was merely a test. I wasn't actually inviting you to Islam. I was inviting you to pledge allegiance to this prophet was really testing your faith, factor eight. So I've seen your passion for your faith.

01:21:59--> 01:22:02

Meaning in his mind, he thought that you were going to kill me

01:22:03--> 01:22:10

for such a doula, who what are the words? So they prostrated to him and they were contented happy with him.

01:22:11--> 01:22:21

For gamma Veronica al Qaeda Shut the hell up, even though now who says this was the final affair of heraclius meaning of final affair.

01:22:22--> 01:22:25

They remain some confusion. And even now, some people

01:22:27--> 01:22:41

are inclined to believe not strongly, I'm just saying, Pete, some, some people would like to believe that heraclius was a Muslim. But the truth is, that, indeed, he was inclined, he was convinced in heart.

01:22:42--> 01:22:54

And he wanted to, and all of these things led to that. But ultimately, when it came to the crunch, he chose the kingdom of this world rather than the kingdom of the hereafter.

01:22:56--> 01:23:24

And this was the final affair of Iraqis that he died in this man. And this wasn't towards the end of his life. This was some time after he left Jerusalem. And after his conversation with heraclius sorry, biddable Sophia. Then later what happened after the conquest of Makkah, Abu sufian embraced the others in grace. And in the book, the prophets, the law, it was in the march north, it's mentioned that

01:23:25--> 01:23:29

ultimately, heraclius even this was even before

01:23:30--> 01:23:32

the Battle of moutere

01:23:33--> 01:23:38

in which Jacqueline will be parley, and the law have not allowed Abdullah

01:23:40--> 01:23:48

and zeta muhaddith rhodiola. These three commanders fell in the Battle of Malta, the Battle of motives placed in the ATL of hedgehogs.

01:23:49--> 01:24:01

And who was the opponent, it was a Byzantine Romans and the assignee of allies under the leadership of heraclius. But you're actually has never came out to the battlefield. It was a small affair. It wasn't.

01:24:03--> 01:24:09

The weren't great armies involved. But it was a battle But heraclius didn't come out onto the battlefield.

01:24:10--> 01:24:25

When the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. A year later, in the at the time of the walk when he arrived in the book, he actually sent another letter to Heraclitus, and heraclius claimed to be a Muslim,

01:24:26--> 01:24:44

and in an aeration of ramblings, Muslim, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam actually said, may He is lying, he remains on his Christian faith, he has not embraced and then after the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heraclius was the

01:24:49--> 01:24:53

he remained the Emperor for another nine years after the passing away of the prophecy.

01:24:55--> 01:24:57

Eventually, he

01:25:02--> 01:25:10

Hee hee hee hee did not embrace and this was the final affair of heraclius. In any case, this brings us to the end of the heavy.

01:25:13--> 01:25:29

There is a lot more to say but suffice with this May Allah stronghold and enable us to understand the words of alarms that assume some of them are highly or some of them. Despite being so great and intelligent iraklis chose the kingdom of the world over the kingdom of the hereafter.

01:25:31--> 01:25:32

That was tragic.

01:25:34--> 01:25:44

But there is one thing, there are some twists, one heraclius did not mistreat the messenger of the soul of loss and the law it was undone.

01:25:45--> 01:25:50

And he, in a way respected the letter of the law.

01:25:56--> 01:26:09

And this was in stark contrast to the sassanid Persian Emperor, who in his arrogance, took the letter from the messenger and rips it up.

01:26:11--> 01:26:22

The letter was sort of lost in the love it was. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam learned of this he cursed him and prayed against him saying, may Allah rip his kingdom as he ripped my letter.

01:26:24--> 01:26:26

And what the effect of that was.

01:26:27--> 01:26:28

That's when the

01:26:30--> 01:26:43

Muslims fought against both these assigning Persians, only Byzantine Romans, the society, Persian Empire, lasting for centuries and generations.

01:26:44--> 01:26:47

It was completely destroyed, complete.

01:26:50--> 01:26:53

There was no sign of Persian Empire left.

01:26:54--> 01:26:55

None whatsoever.

01:26:59--> 01:27:00


01:27:02--> 01:27:10

fulfill the prayer of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Allah repurpose Kingdom as he ripped up my letter.

01:27:11--> 01:27:18

But iraklis at least showed some respect. And he did not mistreat the letter of a sort of loss in the love and even sell them.

01:27:20--> 01:27:30

Although his armies were destroyed, utterly destroyed, not just defeated, the the whole Byzantine Roman army was destroyed in one battle.

01:27:32--> 01:27:34

They were unable to fight another battle.

01:27:36--> 01:27:38

And that was in a single battle of

01:27:40--> 01:27:53

heraclius left bidding farewell to Sham to Syria. And then he retreated to Constantinople. So the Byzantine Roman Empire continued, albeit in a much weakened and reduced state.

01:27:55--> 01:28:02

For another 800 years, approximately, until in the 15th century, when Sorbonne

01:28:03--> 01:28:08

conquered Constantinople, and then the Byzantine Roman Empire came to an end.

01:28:09--> 01:28:14

But that was in contrast to the Persian Empire, which was completely destroyed.

01:28:15--> 01:28:21

And, Pamela, do you remember that these were the two superpowers of the time.

01:28:23--> 01:28:32

And within a few years, a lot of within a few years, a small number of Arab Bedouin,

01:28:33--> 01:28:37

from the deserts of Arabia, came swarming out of that land.

01:28:39--> 01:28:51

And within a few years, these are a veteran whose only experience of warfare was that were their internal tribal squabbles, they managed to defeat entire Roman legions

01:28:53--> 01:28:53


01:28:56--> 01:28:59

destroy the whole of the society, Persian Empire.

01:29:00--> 01:29:02

And these were the two superpowers at the time.

01:29:05--> 01:29:12

That was because they have the blessing of a sort of loss and the love and even some of them, and these harbottle the alarm with them.

01:29:13--> 01:29:14


01:29:16--> 01:29:17

the word of Rasulullah today,

01:29:19--> 01:29:23

as I said, reached wrong during his own lifetime.

01:29:24--> 01:29:31

May Allah subhanho wa Taala enable us terms and was the Lahore syndrome and it he was soon to be unemployed while he was suffering.
