Bribery has destroyed the world and individuals are typically denied their rights as citizens. The wealth of Islam is not a consequence of one's actions, but rather a result of their thinking and desire. The speaker warns of the danger of impressing oneself with gifts and cautioning people about the consequences of their actions.

Amazing.

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

Reflect over these words of the Quran.

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

You know, this is the the the just

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

the the the the uniqueness of the Quran.

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

It's revealed

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

in a context,

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

but its applicability

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

applies to so many different scenarios.

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

So I had, concluded on the previous segment

00:01:04 --> 00:01:08

about the importance of networking and doing things

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

together.

00:01:08 --> 00:01:10

And this was the wise move of this

00:01:10 --> 00:01:12

woman, the queen of Bilqis,

00:01:12 --> 00:01:15

the queen of, Sheba, her name been Bilqis.

00:01:15 --> 00:01:17

She said to her ministers, I'm not gonna

00:01:17 --> 00:01:19

take any action here. I need your input.

00:01:19 --> 00:01:21

They were smart. They were wise. They said,

00:01:21 --> 00:01:22

listen, we ready. If you need us to

00:01:22 --> 00:01:24

roll our sleeves, we roll it up now.

00:01:24 --> 00:01:26

If you want to mobilize us, we mobilize.

00:01:26 --> 00:01:29

Well, umru ilaik, but the decision is yours.

00:01:30 --> 00:01:31

Sometimes you have children

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

that,

00:01:33 --> 00:01:34

have a particular belief

00:01:35 --> 00:01:36

and then they become so assertive

00:01:37 --> 00:01:39

that they insist on the parent this is

00:01:39 --> 00:01:41

the way forward. Now that defeats it.

00:01:42 --> 00:01:45

In Hudaybiyyah, the moment was so daunting, so

00:01:45 --> 00:01:48

challenging, Sahaba were ready, and the the

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

the enemies were provoking a battle. They were

00:01:51 --> 00:01:52

provoking a battle.

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

They were they were so malicious.

00:01:55 --> 00:01:57

They were so obnoxious.

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

They were so blasphemous

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

towards the messenger sallallahu alaihi wasallam. I mean,

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

when the document has been signed up in

00:02:04 --> 00:02:05

the name of Allah,

00:02:05 --> 00:02:07

Muhammad sallallahu alaihi was in the name of

00:02:07 --> 00:02:09

Allah, the most kind, the most merciful, this

00:02:09 --> 00:02:11

is an agreement between Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam

00:02:11 --> 00:02:13

and the people of Makkah. They said, no,

00:02:13 --> 00:02:14

no, no, no, no, no. You're going to

00:02:14 --> 00:02:15

omit your name here.

00:02:16 --> 00:02:17

If we knew you the Prophet of Allah,

00:02:17 --> 00:02:19

Masada the Nakah Anil Bayt Bukhari, we wouldn't

00:02:19 --> 00:02:21

have stopped you here. Take out this here.

00:02:21 --> 00:02:23

Say there's an agreement between Muhammad the son

00:02:23 --> 00:02:23

of

00:02:23 --> 00:02:26

Abdullah. Now was this not being so,

00:02:26 --> 00:02:27

you

00:02:27 --> 00:02:28

know,

00:02:28 --> 00:02:29

nasty

00:02:29 --> 00:02:32

and being so obnoxious and being so malicious

00:02:32 --> 00:02:33

and was this

00:02:33 --> 00:02:34

not blasphemy?

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

Was this not,

00:02:36 --> 00:02:37

you know,

00:02:37 --> 00:02:39

provoking and antagonizing the situation?

00:02:40 --> 00:02:41

And yet the Nabi of Allah sallallahu alaihi

00:02:41 --> 00:02:44

wasallam followed through and he told the Sahaba

00:02:44 --> 00:02:47

to just just hold yourself, just restrain yourself.

00:02:48 --> 00:02:50

So you gotta offer what you feel and

00:02:50 --> 00:02:52

what you assume and what you can do.

00:02:52 --> 00:02:55

But don't override the decision. Don't override the

00:02:55 --> 00:02:57

decision. You know, there's so many angles to

00:02:57 --> 00:02:58

the mashwara.

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

And through the barakah of mashwara, through the

00:03:02 --> 00:03:04

barakah of mashwara,

00:03:05 --> 00:03:06

it brings about goodness.

00:03:17 --> 00:03:20

In Badr when the whole discussion was taking

00:03:20 --> 00:03:23

place regarding the captives of Badr and there

00:03:23 --> 00:03:25

were different opinions and Allah says,

00:03:25 --> 00:03:26

I mean,

00:03:27 --> 00:03:29

If it was not for the matter that

00:03:29 --> 00:03:31

had been passed by Allah, you would have

00:03:31 --> 00:03:33

been gripped in a severe torment.

00:03:35 --> 00:03:37

So the presence of mashwara and the barakah

00:03:37 --> 00:03:39

of mashwara surely averts,

00:03:40 --> 00:03:41

unpleasantness.

00:03:42 --> 00:03:44

So look at the wisdom of this woman.

00:03:44 --> 00:03:47

What did she say in the verse just

00:03:47 --> 00:03:47

recited?

00:03:53 --> 00:03:55

It is the nature of rulers,

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

kings,

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

monarchs,

00:03:58 --> 00:04:00

when they enter a town, a city, a

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

nation, a people,

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

and they come in opposing those people,

00:04:05 --> 00:04:06

then commonly,

00:04:06 --> 00:04:09

averagely, you will find rulers, monarchs.

00:04:09 --> 00:04:10

What will they do?

00:04:12 --> 00:04:14

When they enter a town, a city, a

00:04:14 --> 00:04:15

populated place.

00:04:17 --> 00:04:19

They cause havoc there. They cause mayhem there.

00:04:19 --> 00:04:22

They cause anarchy there. They cause corruption there.

00:04:23 --> 00:04:24

And today we see it displaying out in

00:04:24 --> 00:04:25

the world.

00:04:29 --> 00:04:30

And they,

00:04:30 --> 00:04:31

subject

00:04:31 --> 00:04:32

the honorable

00:04:33 --> 00:04:36

occupants and citizens to disgrace and humiliation.

00:04:38 --> 00:04:40

We've seen it happening in the name of

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

democracy.

00:04:41 --> 00:04:43

How many nations have been toppled?

00:04:43 --> 00:04:45

How many people have been displaced?

00:04:46 --> 00:04:48

How many people have

00:04:48 --> 00:04:49

been denied

00:04:49 --> 00:04:51

safety and security?

00:04:57 --> 00:04:59

And when it is told to them don't

00:04:59 --> 00:05:00

cause mischief on the earth,

00:05:01 --> 00:05:02

they retort

00:05:04 --> 00:05:06

We are those who bring about reformation

00:05:06 --> 00:05:09

and we want to bring about stability and

00:05:09 --> 00:05:09

safety.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:17

Beware, behold, these are the evil mongers and

00:05:17 --> 00:05:19

these are the evil people and these are

00:05:19 --> 00:05:20

those people who cause corruption.

00:05:24 --> 00:05:27

But they choose not to understand it.

00:05:33 --> 00:05:34

In the nation

00:05:34 --> 00:05:35

of,

00:05:35 --> 00:05:38

SallAllahu Alaihi Salatu Was Salam. There were 9

00:05:38 --> 00:05:40

people and they were group leaders and they

00:05:40 --> 00:05:41

used to cause a lot of corruption. They

00:05:41 --> 00:05:43

used to cause a lot of corruption.

00:05:43 --> 00:05:46

So here's the thinking process of this woman

00:05:46 --> 00:05:48

which is so amazing. She says

00:05:54 --> 00:05:56

Right? Verse 34,

00:05:56 --> 00:05:59

that the notion the the nature of of

00:05:59 --> 00:06:01

rulers are if they come in in

00:06:02 --> 00:06:03

opposing,

00:06:03 --> 00:06:05

then you'll see they'll just cause havoc there.

00:06:16 --> 00:06:19

And I'm afraid if we get into battle

00:06:19 --> 00:06:21

with them, we might just, you know what,

00:06:22 --> 00:06:24

meet a blow that we weren't able to

00:06:24 --> 00:06:25

deal with.

00:06:26 --> 00:06:27

So let's first

00:06:28 --> 00:06:30

examine the situation.

00:06:30 --> 00:06:31

Let's just see

00:06:32 --> 00:06:33

and analyze it.

00:06:34 --> 00:06:36

Is it someone that we could appease with

00:06:36 --> 00:06:39

something material? Because that's the world today. You

00:06:39 --> 00:06:41

just dangle the candy,

00:06:41 --> 00:06:44

and, you just dangle the carrot, and suddenly

00:06:44 --> 00:06:46

a person softens in his stance.

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

And,

00:06:48 --> 00:06:49

you know,

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

everything changes.

00:06:51 --> 00:06:53

No. No. No. No. No. No. We we

00:06:53 --> 00:06:55

tough against, criminals.

00:06:55 --> 00:06:58

There's no bribery here. We we move by

00:06:58 --> 00:07:00

the book and law execution

00:07:00 --> 00:07:03

and enforcement at its greatest. I mean, what's

00:07:03 --> 00:07:06

the good of legislating the best of rules

00:07:06 --> 00:07:07

if there's no enforcement?

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

And and that's exactly what we see happening

00:07:09 --> 00:07:10

in the world.

00:07:11 --> 00:07:13

So you you could dangle anything

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

and,

00:07:14 --> 00:07:17

and then you just see how that individual's

00:07:17 --> 00:07:18

stance changes.

00:07:21 --> 00:07:22

When the prophet presented

00:07:23 --> 00:07:25

the dawah to to Waleed

00:07:26 --> 00:07:28

and Waleed thought that this is someone who

00:07:28 --> 00:07:29

he could sway

00:07:30 --> 00:07:31

with the things of this

00:07:32 --> 00:07:32

world.

00:07:46 --> 00:07:48

You want leadership, we'll make you our leader.

00:07:50 --> 00:07:52

You will pass judgement on all our matters.

00:07:52 --> 00:07:54

You tell us what you want. You have

00:07:54 --> 00:07:55

the desire of women.

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

We give you the best of women. Nabi

00:08:02 --> 00:08:04

Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam

00:08:05 --> 00:08:06

responded by saying

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

are you done with what you needed to

00:08:10 --> 00:08:12

say? He said, yes. He said, now listen

00:08:12 --> 00:08:13

to my Dawud and then the messenger sallallahu

00:08:13 --> 00:08:15

alaihi wasallam recited to him,

00:08:18 --> 00:08:20

Okay. So here you have in verse 34,

00:08:21 --> 00:08:24

the queen of Saba is saying, the nature

00:08:24 --> 00:08:26

of kings are when they come in, they

00:08:26 --> 00:08:29

can destroy an entire nation up, and they

00:08:29 --> 00:08:31

can completely topple those people.

00:08:32 --> 00:08:34

So I think this is my process

00:08:47 --> 00:08:49

I'm going to send them some handsome gifts,

00:08:50 --> 00:08:51

some exclusive gifts,

00:08:52 --> 00:08:53

And I want to see

00:08:53 --> 00:08:55

if they buy into

00:08:55 --> 00:08:58

my material display. So I'm going to present

00:08:58 --> 00:09:02

this to them, nicely, officially present it to

00:09:02 --> 00:09:02

them,

00:09:04 --> 00:09:06

you know, in a world where bribery is

00:09:06 --> 00:09:09

rife, in a world where bribery is rife,

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

and then a person needs to present his

00:09:11 --> 00:09:12

document

00:09:12 --> 00:09:15

to, the traffic officer. So sometimes,

00:09:16 --> 00:09:18

if it was an ID document or something,

00:09:18 --> 00:09:21

then inside that document, he puts a bill.

00:09:21 --> 00:09:22

He puts a bill there. He puts a

00:09:22 --> 00:09:23

note there.

00:09:24 --> 00:09:25

It doesn't say anything.

00:09:25 --> 00:09:28

He offers the document, but there's a subtle

00:09:28 --> 00:09:30

hint there to say that, you know what?

00:09:30 --> 00:09:31

If you undertake,

00:09:31 --> 00:09:33

well, here there is something. Here there is

00:09:33 --> 00:09:35

something for you.

00:09:35 --> 00:09:38

And you could see unfortunately today, bribery has

00:09:38 --> 00:09:40

destroyed the world. The prophet

00:09:42 --> 00:09:42

said,

00:09:44 --> 00:09:48

the person taking bribery, the person accepting bribery,

00:09:48 --> 00:09:51

both are destined for help. Both are destined

00:09:51 --> 00:09:53

for help. Right? Of course, there's a whole

00:09:53 --> 00:09:55

explanation to it in the books of fiqh,

00:09:56 --> 00:09:58

that when a person is denied his right,

00:09:58 --> 00:10:00

he's denied his right,

00:10:00 --> 00:10:03

and something that is due to him and

00:10:03 --> 00:10:05

he's entitled to, and he's been barred and

00:10:05 --> 00:10:07

blocked off, then at that time,

00:10:08 --> 00:10:11

within the limited contacts, it would be permissible

00:10:11 --> 00:10:13

for him to offer the bribery. But it

00:10:13 --> 00:10:15

will never be permissible for the person taking

00:10:15 --> 00:10:17

the bribe to accept the bribe.

00:10:17 --> 00:10:20

So there's no place in which it is

00:10:20 --> 00:10:22

correct to accept the bribe. There are certain

00:10:22 --> 00:10:24

moments, occasions, situations

00:10:24 --> 00:10:25

where unfortunately,

00:10:26 --> 00:10:28

you are in a situation where you denied

00:10:28 --> 00:10:30

what you are entitled to your right as

00:10:30 --> 00:10:33

a citizen. You've just been denied your right

00:10:33 --> 00:10:34

and that is sad and unfortunate.

00:10:35 --> 00:10:37

So verse 35, she says,

00:10:43 --> 00:10:46

and verily I will send to him some

00:10:46 --> 00:10:48

gifts. And then I'm curious

00:10:48 --> 00:10:49

to know

00:10:49 --> 00:10:53

what the messengers return with. What's their take?

00:10:53 --> 00:10:55

What's their input? What happened? Give us the

00:10:55 --> 00:10:56

rundown.

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

Now

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

she then

00:10:59 --> 00:11:01

prepares this handsome gift. Of course, she was

00:11:01 --> 00:11:03

a queen. She had an empire. When Hudhul

00:11:03 --> 00:11:03

narrated,

00:11:05 --> 00:11:07

in terms of ruling, she had everything, but

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

of course, no comparison to the empire of

00:11:10 --> 00:11:12

because he was the of Allah and he

00:11:12 --> 00:11:13

had divine, you know,

00:11:14 --> 00:11:17

resources that were at his disposal. The winds

00:11:17 --> 00:11:19

were in his command. He would instruct the

00:11:19 --> 00:11:20

wind and then it would flow.

00:11:23 --> 00:11:25

It would fly and and the entire throne

00:11:25 --> 00:11:26

would move.

00:11:32 --> 00:11:34

But nonetheless, she prepared gifts.

00:11:34 --> 00:11:38

Historical narrations differ in the expression. Some say

00:11:38 --> 00:11:41

it was gold, it was silver, it was

00:11:41 --> 00:11:42

exclusive things.

00:11:43 --> 00:11:45

It was helpers. It was servants. It was

00:11:45 --> 00:11:48

like handsome, handsome things. You know? I mean,

00:11:48 --> 00:11:50

that that that that's how it happens today

00:11:50 --> 00:11:51

in the world.

00:11:51 --> 00:11:52

You you you

00:11:53 --> 00:11:56

undercover, you kinda exchange these exclusive things, and

00:11:56 --> 00:11:57

that's how you then you

00:11:58 --> 00:12:01

secure your own interest. You secure your own

00:12:01 --> 00:12:03

interest, and a person then mellows down to

00:12:03 --> 00:12:06

your thinking. And that's how you bring people,

00:12:07 --> 00:12:09

into whatever you want them to do or

00:12:09 --> 00:12:10

or,

00:12:10 --> 00:12:11

believe into.

00:12:17 --> 00:12:18

Verse number 36.

00:12:20 --> 00:12:21

They arrive.

00:12:21 --> 00:12:24

The messengers, the envoy, the delegation,

00:12:24 --> 00:12:25

the gifts,

00:12:26 --> 00:12:29

you know, whatever she sent, everything comes to

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

Soleiman alaihis salam.

00:12:40 --> 00:12:42

When those gifts, those people,

00:12:42 --> 00:12:45

those tokens, those contributions,

00:12:46 --> 00:12:46

those expressions,

00:12:47 --> 00:12:51

those exclusive things came to Sulaiman alayhis salam,

00:12:54 --> 00:12:57

He said, are you trying to aid me?

00:12:57 --> 00:12:59

Are you trying to help me? Are you

00:12:59 --> 00:13:01

trying to impress me with material?

00:13:01 --> 00:13:04

Now what what the thinking process of this

00:13:04 --> 00:13:06

woman was, is he one of the regular

00:13:06 --> 00:13:07

kings of this world? Is he one of

00:13:07 --> 00:13:09

the regular rulers of this world? We can

00:13:09 --> 00:13:11

buy him with our wealth. We can impress

00:13:11 --> 00:13:13

him with our empire. We can do that

00:13:13 --> 00:13:15

very nicely, and that's how, you know, the

00:13:15 --> 00:13:16

people move on.

00:13:17 --> 00:13:19

But, of course, when you look at Khilafat,

00:13:19 --> 00:13:20

Sayidna Abu Bakr,

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

Sayidna

00:13:22 --> 00:13:22

Umar,

00:13:24 --> 00:13:26

you could never you could never,

00:13:27 --> 00:13:28

dangle

00:13:28 --> 00:13:31

anything material before them and try and sway

00:13:31 --> 00:13:34

them off their focus, not at all. They

00:13:34 --> 00:13:36

were firm. They were zahid.

00:13:36 --> 00:13:39

Zahid. 1 of my scholars had once mentioned,

00:13:39 --> 00:13:41

zahid means one who is not consumed by

00:13:41 --> 00:13:44

this world. Study all our pious predecessors.

00:13:45 --> 00:13:46

They contributed

00:13:47 --> 00:13:49

indeed in different fields, but there were 2

00:13:49 --> 00:13:53

common denominators to them all, Zohad and Khulus.

00:13:53 --> 00:13:55

They were sincere in their motives and they

00:13:55 --> 00:13:58

had no attachment to this world. And because

00:13:58 --> 00:14:01

of that, Allah allowed their cause to prosper.

00:14:01 --> 00:14:03

Allah allowed their cause to prosper.

00:14:03 --> 00:14:04

So

00:14:05 --> 00:14:07

says to the men to envoy and to

00:14:07 --> 00:14:08

the messengers,

00:14:12 --> 00:14:15

do you seriously mean you want to help

00:14:15 --> 00:14:16

me with your wealth?

00:14:21 --> 00:14:24

What Allah has given me is way better

00:14:24 --> 00:14:25

than what you have.

00:14:25 --> 00:14:27

My wealth is way better than yours. Number

00:14:27 --> 00:14:29

1, the wealth I have is more than

00:14:29 --> 00:14:32

yours. Number 2, my wealth is coupled with

00:14:33 --> 00:14:35

piety and obedience and the pleasure of Allah.

00:14:36 --> 00:14:38

Your wealth is not coupled with that. If

00:14:38 --> 00:14:40

you have little wealth, but it is halal

00:14:40 --> 00:14:42

and it is blessed. That is more wholesome

00:14:42 --> 00:14:45

versus someone who has abundance of wealth that

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

is forbidden.

00:14:46 --> 00:14:49

So, if if that wealth is in large

00:14:49 --> 00:14:51

volume but you know what? You have severed

00:14:51 --> 00:14:54

tithes, you have disobeyed Allah, you are dealing

00:14:54 --> 00:14:56

in interest, you are in gambling,

00:14:57 --> 00:14:58

then then what's the good of that money?

00:14:58 --> 00:15:00

It will not buy you any good. It

00:15:00 --> 00:15:02

will buy you the item. It won't buy

00:15:02 --> 00:15:04

you the happiness. It will buy you the

00:15:04 --> 00:15:05

home. It will buy you the house. It

00:15:05 --> 00:15:06

won't give you the home.

00:15:07 --> 00:15:08

It will buy you the bed. It will

00:15:08 --> 00:15:10

not buy you the tranquility and peace on

00:15:10 --> 00:15:12

that bed. It will not. That's the system

00:15:12 --> 00:15:14

of Allah. You can see people that have

00:15:14 --> 00:15:16

so much wealth, but when it does not

00:15:16 --> 00:15:17

come through halal avenues,

00:15:18 --> 00:15:19

they are miserable.

00:15:40 --> 00:15:43

In essence, the wealth Allah gave me is

00:15:43 --> 00:15:45

far more wholesome than the wealth that I

00:15:45 --> 00:15:47

have you you have because I have that

00:15:47 --> 00:15:49

wealth with the obedience of Allah. And that's

00:15:49 --> 00:15:51

what we ask for Allah from. Allah.

00:15:56 --> 00:15:59

Oh, Allah give us health that doesn't make

00:15:59 --> 00:16:01

us rebel. Give us wealth that doesn't make

00:16:01 --> 00:16:02

us transgress.

00:16:11 --> 00:16:13

This has been explored in many ways.

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

You can go and impress yourself and you

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

can rejoice with your own gifts. You know

00:16:19 --> 00:16:21

what? Good luck to you with your money.

00:16:21 --> 00:16:22

Good luck to you, man. Yeah. Good luck

00:16:22 --> 00:16:25

to you because you love this world and

00:16:25 --> 00:16:27

it's the absolute place for you and it's

00:16:27 --> 00:16:28

be all and absolute.

00:16:28 --> 00:16:32

So you know what? Thrill yourself, fascinate yourself,

00:16:32 --> 00:16:35

amuse yourself, impress yourself with with what you

00:16:35 --> 00:16:37

have. But hang on now. Now listen,

00:16:37 --> 00:16:39

I'm giving you a warning.

00:16:39 --> 00:16:41

I sent you a lovely note. I gave

00:16:41 --> 00:16:43

you a word of caution. I told you

00:16:43 --> 00:16:46

don't challenge me. I said accept the truth.

00:16:47 --> 00:16:48

Go back to,

00:16:49 --> 00:16:50

your people

00:16:50 --> 00:16:51

and tell them,

00:16:55 --> 00:16:57

We will march with an army.

00:16:58 --> 00:17:00

We will march with an army.

00:17:01 --> 00:17:04

You will have no clout, no muscle to

00:17:04 --> 00:17:05

challenge us.

00:17:05 --> 00:17:08

And if you if you accept, good luck.

00:17:08 --> 00:17:11

But if you persist in your opposition,

00:17:11 --> 00:17:14

then we will have no choice but to

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

expel you from your own land

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

and you will be left humiliated.

00:17:19 --> 00:17:20

Yes, indeed.

00:17:21 --> 00:17:23

So I've sent you a note. I've communicated

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

it. I've told you respond.

00:17:25 --> 00:17:28

The woman wanted to process the whole thing.

00:17:28 --> 00:17:30

She wanted to find out the merits of

00:17:30 --> 00:17:31

the case. Is it someone

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

that is,

00:17:33 --> 00:17:36

just screaming, yelling? You know, in the world,

00:17:36 --> 00:17:37

there are a lot of people that can

00:17:37 --> 00:17:38

bark, but they can't bite.

00:17:39 --> 00:17:40

There are a lot of people that can

00:17:40 --> 00:17:43

bark, but they can't bite. Yes. That's the

00:17:43 --> 00:17:44

the world in which we live today. So

00:17:44 --> 00:17:46

they talk a lot. They make the noise,

00:17:46 --> 00:17:48

but when it comes to crunch time, I'm

00:17:48 --> 00:17:50

afraid there's no teeth there. There's nothing to

00:17:50 --> 00:17:50

bite.

00:17:51 --> 00:17:53

So Reiman alayhis salaam was straight. He was

00:17:53 --> 00:17:55

clear. He was articulate.

00:17:55 --> 00:17:57

The woman wanted to verify.

00:17:58 --> 00:18:00

Is he from the regular kings and rulers

00:18:00 --> 00:18:02

or he's different? So she sent the gifts.

00:18:02 --> 00:18:03

He responded by saying

00:18:06 --> 00:18:08

go thrill and impress yourself with your own

00:18:08 --> 00:18:10

gifts and make yourself happy with it. Allah

00:18:10 --> 00:18:12

has given me more than enough.

00:18:12 --> 00:18:14

And please tell them And that's the next

00:18:14 --> 00:18:17

verse. Return to them to to them.

00:18:20 --> 00:18:21

We will march out with an army.

00:18:23 --> 00:18:25

You won't able to challenge us because remember

00:18:25 --> 00:18:27

Surayman alaihis salatu wa salam has the the

00:18:27 --> 00:18:30

the the the the of Allah. He has

00:18:30 --> 00:18:32

the help of Allah When

00:18:32 --> 00:18:33

Musa Alaihi Salam

00:18:34 --> 00:18:35

was sent to pharaoh,

00:18:40 --> 00:18:40

don't

00:18:41 --> 00:18:44

fear. He cannot touch you. I'm watching his

00:18:44 --> 00:18:45

moves and monitoring his actions.

00:18:49 --> 00:18:51

And so the man said tell them

00:18:51 --> 00:18:54

we will be compelled to expel them from

00:18:54 --> 00:18:55

their own town and city,

00:18:58 --> 00:19:00

and they will be left humiliated.

00:19:01 --> 00:19:04

So that's it. The messengers are disappointed in

00:19:04 --> 00:19:05

the sense that, you know what? This man

00:19:05 --> 00:19:08

didn't receive any gift. He returned everything

00:19:08 --> 00:19:11

and they come back to build this, narrate

00:19:11 --> 00:19:12

the sequence of events,

00:19:13 --> 00:19:15

return the gifts to her and equally

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

convey

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

the warning that Soleiman

00:19:20 --> 00:19:21

had sounded.

00:19:21 --> 00:19:24

Let's wait and see what's the next move

00:19:24 --> 00:19:25

of this woman

00:19:25 --> 00:19:27

following the alert, the caution,

00:19:28 --> 00:19:31

and the danger warning from Soleiman alayhis salam.
