Alhamdulillah Hello I'm behind I mean
on a shadow Allah you know in Allah Allah you're slightly hanging
on a shadow on NASA you then want to be no mo Lana Mohammed Abdullah. He will also know i mean Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala Sayyidina Muhammad Mohammedan. While early he thought he Reen was a heavy hitter you've been on WR homea CERN in Isla Yomi dean of odd Sins of poetry,
which come to mind again at this moment.
It these lines of poetry come to mind because they are a very apt representation of the reason why we come together out of the Shadowrun, early Srila killeth, our key woman ladyfish, Shara meenal, Heidi coffee.
One would wish that everything in life is rosy, and nice. Everything is friendly.
Everything is optimistic.
But the reality of life is somewhat different.
starkly different from that in this life, you get good, you get bad as well.
We as a community have to contend with all issues that arise anything that threatens the fabric of our society.
Therefore, if it happens at times, that we use adjectives, such as bad and evil, it is not to denigrate,
to humiliate or to judge any particular person
but rather an idea.
For the most part of his history, the society was not aware of the car and Tasha your Shiism it became aware of it there are those who wish that we must only focus upon what is good only focus upon what is common between both of us only focus upon those issues.
Where we can find common ground between ourselves in the car and thereby work towards a kind of a unity in order to achieve the greater purposes of this oma.
As admirable as such sentiments may be,
they are not in the interest of a community
nylund in the long term now in the short term hatchie ism come purely as an element
that arose in this society without any pretensions and without any intentions of spreading its wings, beyond what it already is, one could have possibly gone that that route. But that is not the case, we find that it is a phenomenon that invites towards itself that passes itself off as the original and uncorrupted form of Islam, which by its very nature, a claim of this nature, by its very nature, make certain statements and judgments about ourselves and our form of Islam. Therefore, we have come together, we have come together to learn about those aspects of Shiism, which we recognize as not good, call it bad, call it evil, call it whatever you wish. But the fact of the
matter is that there are certain things which are not in the interest of this particular society, we have to look at them.
None of those things are intended as a judgment on particular persons. I'm 100% certain that you'll find people born as she is in other parts of the world, perhaps even in this part of the old world, excellent individuals. Now judgment upon them. They might be very, very good persons in their own right. But we as a community are threatened. And therefore we say together with the power are off to share I'm here to learn about not good things about bad things, lowly sharp, not in order to engage them in something that is evil, not in order to engage in violence, not in order to engage in condemnation, not in order to attack persons. But in order to safeguard this particular society,
Lucky Lita Rocky, I have to know about these bad things. as uncomfortable as they are, I have to become aware of them in order to avoid them. Because woman let
me know. If you are unable to distinguish between a good idea and a bad idea, then you're going to find yourself very soon falling into that evil. Therefore, we come together week after week, in order to learn further about it. Well, that is introduction I proceed.
This Week in sha Allah.
We will go on a walk through history, the history of Shiism, from its early days,
to as far as our one hour will allow us
to this year the history of Shiism
goes hand in hand with the history of Islam.
De La Sol de la sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came with a message of a club is not the color, the color. They believe that together with the seed of Islam, the seed of the shaiya was planted at one in the same time. We obviously differ. We believe that there was one Islam. In this Deen of ours. There is no internal divisions. We believe that there is going to be no partisanship. There is not an Islam and a different form of Islam. Because Allah tala made it clear in alladhina. Ferrara codina, homolka no Shia and less than me no fishy. Those who split their Deen up into various different parties and groupings. You Oh Muhammad has have nothing to do with them. This gene is one
Dean. So for anyone to say that the seed of Shiism was planted together with the seed of Islam is going in direct violation of that particular area.
Whatever might have been
the point of eventual divergence to the shear becomes apparent upon the demise of Satan or Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
What happens at that moment is that
the issue of leadership
becomes prominent becomes an issue of discussion. Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is no longer amongst us. What happens next? While he was alive, he was the leader. With him having departed, where does leadership devolve upon whose shoulders does it go? The unsavoury gathered together upon receipt of the news of the demise of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam at a place called suceava benissa. suceava is what we would call in Africans of duck.
It's a kind of a roof structure, under which you certainly get together and discuss
not the wall structures is just a few bowls with a roof and they used to sit,
they get together sorry for many sorry, then they start discussing what happens who becomes the leader after Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and various ideas get thrown up. They say that this is our city, we were the inhabitants of the city before they came. Now Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is no longer amongst us. So one of us has to take over. So in Abu Bakar, and say now maravilla, on whom I come to hear about what is happening in sa p for benissa. And they realize the danger of what is happening there. If this matter of leadership is to be discussed by anyone and everyone, anyone chooses any leader and just go about doing things as they want to this oma was
precarious unity was forged over 23 years. It runs the danger of being divided amongst themselves. So immediately they settled for the subpoena. They go there and they engage in discussion with the unsolved and they make it clear to the unsolved on the strength of various arguments from the Quran from the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. That leadership in this oma was intended to remain within this particular group of the Maha jurien. Because Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam said him to mean Quraysh.
various different arguments are brought up from this side from that side eventually one of the answer say he did not say it even comes forward and says, give you a hand and we shall make based upon your hand side. Now Omar at that moment has two men on his side. He says, I offer you one of two men. On my right hand here is Abubakar on my left. 10 years ago, Obama acknowledged
these two men choose any of them and they will be a good leader. They eventually decided to give the buyer to say the mobile Corolla horn. Now at that moment, this is a very very sensitive moment that we can go on discussing at length. I've given you the broad outlines the answer all come together the mohajir in whoever they all have them place the hands in the hands of Satan and boubakeur say they cannot be alone or this is our new leader. Not long thereafter they go into the masjid. And publicly the announcement is made we've elected Abu Bakar is our halifa as our as the successor of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. Everyone come give you a shout out to the new Khalifa
in the house of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam at that moment, so even Olive Nabi Talib, and other members of the household of azula sallallahu Sallam are preparing his body for burial, washing, preparing for burial. They are not aware of what is happening in suceava.
They come out in the house what has happened because the year that we're in the masjid, they are told that BIA has been given to Abubakar the lower No, they feel somewhat slighted.
They feel somewhat slighted somewhat hard done by Why? Because they were not consulted. They were not part of the process. As forgiving the beta, they do give the buyer to say hello and all that they felt was we should have been consulted as well. But after hearing the way that things came about, it came about not by design is because one party was pulling the one side and another party was pulling the other way. This particular situation had to be resolved. It wasn't
All by Mahajan and unsolved together deciding to give the buyer to sell Abubakar Lila on.
So in olive natali also at that moment gives his buyer six months later because some people will still speaking perhaps Ali is not happy. Perhaps Ollie is not happy. Perhaps he has certain designs nakida himself. Therefore six months later, after the demise of say the faulty model the yellow on her, he sends a message to Abubakar tomorrow publicly in the masjid. We have an appointment I want to publicly make clear to each and everyone that I have noticed with you as a halifa I accept you as a halifa just as Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was happy to have you lead us in Salah in his final days, we are happy to have you as our halifa in leading us in this dunya so the next day
publicly in the masjid, he stands up, delivers a hotbar in which he declares his allegiance to Abu Bakar Allah gives his br as we saw last week, he goes on there after to do what he goes on to name his sons. After Abu Bakar Omar and of Monrovia lo on him. He goes on to give his daughter in marriage to say now Murali Allah on home.
This is the kind of relationship that he had with the rest of the Sahaba all the along.
This is our version of the history broad lines broad outlines.
Is this our version of the history there is another version. The other version I might have stated in previous
lectures here the other version goes that when I leave now Vitaly, but I'll be alone when the rest of the Ahlul bait was sitting in the house lady refused to come out to give the VR to Abu Bakar therefore they were attacked in that home. They were attacked by Omar sending Khalid evenin Walid and others to gather firewood around the house and burn down that house if they do not come out. And Ali is inside, and Fatima is inside, and the little Hassan and Hussein they are all inside that house. And eventually Omar storms open the door fathima standing behind the door slams against the wall to the extent that she loses her unborn child Ali is grabbed around his neck dragged out in the
greatest of humiliation and forced to give by others is also a version of history. This particular version of history definitely does not harmonize with what we know of the character of a sudden loyal Olive Olive Natalia probably alarm will
continue something else takes place more or less at this time. What also takes place is so either faulty model, the yellow one here comes to say Nabokov, a viola horn who she comes to him and says, I asked from you my inheritance from my father, father's Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he has passed away. She comes to our back and asking my inheritance from my father.
He does not give her that inheritance.
What was that inheritance? It was some land that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam possessed in a place called fadak near haber, a garden in fadak. That she says is my inheritance from my father. He does not give it to her from the outside. This is abubaker usurping unrightfully appropriating the property of Seda fathima the law on her and being guilty of injustice upon her. But let's look at it in a wider sense, who are the heirs of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam only his daughter? What about the fact he has an uncle as well? What about the fact that he leaves several wives they are also part and parcel of the is even they are denied the shame the inheritance of Allah sallallahu
wasallam and why are they denied a Shane inheritance of Allah sallallahu Sallam because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself said that we The Gambia we do not leave anything to is to inherit, mata rachna sadaqa. Whatever we leave behind the sadaqa say the MOBA karate alone or therefore Delta fathima we are low on her one La e, la caraga to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Hubble Ilya and Assalam in karate, to keep ties with a family of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam is more beloved to my heart than to keep the eyes even with my own family. But one thing stands in my way of doing what you ask. And our kin many semiotica Rasul Allah is Allah Allah, Allah
May all national martial ambia learn with metallic nasaka with ambia we do not leave any inheritance behind whatever we leave behind the sadhaka if karate alone was an evil person, will you serve the inheritance of Fatima then we have to consider several other things. We have to consider the fact that he will start his own daughter's inheritance as well. We also have to consider something else that something else is. Did anyone ever asked themselves that when he appropriated it, took it for himself stole it
What did he do with it thereafter? Look at this thing. What does he say? He did he dealt with it exactly as the sort of Allah sallallahu Sallam used to deal with it. All those who used to benefit from it in the lifetime of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. Continued benefiting from it after Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam Is this what a usurper does? Is this what a person does? Who does an injustice to the family of Allah sallallahu Sallam giving them more than everyone when the spoils of war came into Medina, and the coffers of the state are full. And as I say, Nabokov, Allah to decide how is this to be distributed in the community of Medina, right at the top, he says, who's
going to get most? He said, everyone's not going to get equal. Almost idea was everyone must get the same worker said, No, I'm going to give to people in order of precedence. First of all, right at the top, we'll get the most the family of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, little Hassan and Jose in six and seven years old. They get the same shape as the people of bother those people who fought that battle, who are next in line after the family of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, these two little ones, barely able to walk on their own six and seven years old, so much did he love them that he gave them exactly the same shape as the Sahaba who fought for Islam? This is not the act of a person
who usurps who is unjust. Who expropriate property unrightfully. This is the act of a person who loves very dearly the family of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. This place or further thereafter, are almost alone becomes the halifa. And he deals with it exactly as
he used to deal with it. What does he do? Exactly? those same people used to benefit in the time of hospital law, some continue to benefit, but it's administered by the halifa himself. One day, say now boss and say nalli I've never even ever thought if they come to him and they ask him, please, we ask you to hand over the sack of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam to us, handed over to us we want to administrate. He says I will give it to you on one condition. What's that one condition? The one condition is that you administrate exactly as Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam you said ministry, give those people from it we used to get in his lifetime. If you do it like that, I'll give it to you. If
you cannot do it, leave it I will do it myself. This is again not the actions of a person who is unjust. Now this seems to be a very inane story. What what's so wonderful about it? The reason why it needs to be told is because it's been distorted completely beyond recognition. by the sheer This is Abubakar, the usurper aboubaker the oppressor taking away the last little bit of the daughter of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and then it goes beyond that. It says that abubaker forged lied, created, fabricated ahaadeeth just so that he can take away the the inheritance of Altima which Hades, they say this hardy if not no Marshall ambia, the Hadith that says with ambia we do not leave
an inheritance. Is this a forgery? She tells you very clearly this is a forgery. Why? We ask them why they say well it goes against the Quran. Where does it go against the Quran? They tell you well, well what he says Suleiman Buddha would, the Quran mentions there that the MBI can inherit, they live in in essence behind them, thou died and he was who was is a is a was to lay man, this is says the MBR can inherit from one another. Your Hadith says Zambia cannot or do not leave any inheritance behind. We say that look at that Hadith. What did Suleiman inherit from the wood? What was it that he inherited from that? What do you think it was money, or land or anything like that? It was alien.
It was new who were given the Lord Allah, it was the kingdom that would have many other sons. So the man was not his own son. If this was a matter of worldly inheritance, what is the sense of a law the law telling us? That was a was a man also a man's property when to doubt it was not that it was that alien that Nobu and that mold, that kingdom that Allah Allah given them, there is no conflict, no contradiction between the eye on the one hand and the Hadith on the other. This particular Hadith is narrated by who not only by the Allah Sana, if this is the forgery of Abu Bakar Hello, I know how come in the books of the Shia themselves there is a book called hardeeville urban, written by,
written by Imam Khomeini. In that particular book, he narrates William Jaffa, along his Hadith about the favela, for him about the virtues of healing. And in that Hadith the same thing comes that we the ambia do not leave any evidence behind. We leave behind only one thing that is reeling from an aha that we have in wellfield. If Abu Bakar is a fabricator is a forger is the lie of this Howdy. How can we ma'am Jennifer Assad is saying exactly the same thing. The Hadith is no forgery. The Sahaba Lila annum dealt with the greatest of love the greatest of K the greatest of mercy to the Albert Hall Viola horn home edge marine vai for you would find the person accidentally naming his
sons after them after all, there was no Takia it was only an FMA
Have the good relationship that existed between the Sahaba on the one hand and say now living on the other
side in Abubakar only allow one who dies in Alma becomes a halifa. We've already spoken about the marriage of say, Norma to the daughter of segnale. Then there are two campaigns getting on to great campaigns of jihad, one in Persia, one in Syria, the Persian campaign is not going very well. The Persian campaign is not making headway. So now he calls together his counselors, Chief counselor was who Olive natali said now Omar calls him together. his chief counsel is Olive Nabeel polyp.
Your chief counsel is not your enemy. Your chief counsel is your close friend. He calls him together and asks them that I haven't
a suggestion, I want to go personally to the Persian front, I want to go and join the jihad in Persia myself, you want my counsel to tell me what should I do? So now he tells me I mean, don't go yourself. If you go, the Persians will be incited to greater fervor, because they will recognize that the leader of the Addams is here, and they will fight. They will fight with great determination. If they managed to kill you, it will be very bad for this oma, rather you stay here, let the Mujahideen go and they will fight. This is home. This is a friend giving advice to a friend. This is not a person giving advice to someone who he believes to be in the lowest lowest parts of
hell. This is what we believe the Sahaba be allowed to have been like what were they like a Hawaiian and Allah Soto remota carbene, they were brothers of one another, dearly loved one another. And if in the course of a face, sometimes it happens that someone has a difference of opinion with another, they were those people who could find it in their hearts to overlook their differences. There are others however, who could not and who till the end of time will continue being up imagine issues of this trust between them. Eventually, the khilafah goes to say North man or the low angle. Now during the love of Satan out man there are certain very, very important points, which I will leave for a
later day to be discussed individually.
In very, very broad terms. What happens here is that there is in the cities, in the various outlying cities, there are people who are dissatisfied with the way that say now with Manuel de Allah and who is running the state. Who are those people, they are not Sahaba those are people like us, the Muslims,
who've got a better idea of what Islam should be like, want to tell the Sahaba of the Alon how they must go about doing things. Those people to cut the long story very short and the long so he will come we're not avoiding anything. To cut the long story very short eventually March upon Medina and murders right now man in his very own house.
To understand what Medina was like in those days, to understand what happens when rebels march in slow to the halifa while he sitting and reading the Quran. To understand what that was all about. We'll need a whole lecture. For now we suffice to say that the moment the blood of the halifa was shed this almost split apart. And from that moment till the very present day It has never come together again
because of the Holy Blood of Satan, Othman raviolo. I know that was that was shared on that day.
What happens the oma splits politically they have split apart. Why? Because in Syria there is the governor of Syria
and he is the cousin of man. in Medina there is a gnarly baby thought he was elected as a next Khalifa
What does he do thereafter?
He calls for all the governor's to send in their big stars. This missing this one he starts appointing the other he's an Oliver he has to work with people that he can work along with from Syria muawiya sends a message I am not submitting. I'm not giving up my post until the blood of my cousin of mine is avenged.
My cousin of man cannot be killed in cold love. And his murder is left free to go about doing as they want to. I will submit but this is my condition. Who is right who is wrong.
Seen from one angle the one is right seen from another angle. The other one has a point as well. But the more important thing is who is right the halifa is the rightful one. He is the center of all the Satan that alumna Vitaly is the rightful one. He has the command. He is the one to decide. However, we need to understand where the other side is coming from. Are they opposed to Ali's khilafah? Just because they don't like him? No, they have a reason and very, very valid reason as well. The blood of Ozma of man is not your goal, and his murders are running about where his matters to be found. The supporters of his murders are within the army of alibaba alibaba the Allahu anhu.
What do you do now? The Sahaba of the yellow on whom find themselves in a situation that they never had to face before. Before this day, things were clear cut. Muslim was Muslim
Garfield was Garfield. Jihad was an easy matter. It was easy to decide which campaign to join. Because who was it? It was Muslim fighting Kerviel. Anyone else had to go to Syria to go and fighting Jihad? Bismillah you have no questions, go to Iraq to fight go to Persia to fight you know exactly who you're fighting. For the first time in the history of Islam. It happens that Muslims are fighting Muslims, you will find people
Sahaba on both sides
and confusion reigning, who is really responsible for what, on the one hand they are those who suspect that Ali has something to do with the murder of man. On the other hand, they are those while he suspects that they are undermining my khilafah suspicion on both sides. It takes an army with him to one subdue Maui and Syria in Makkah, say Nepal ha Sedna Zubair say the eyeshadow the Alanna get together in in Makkah. They left Medina for Makkah, just after the word of mouth, man. No, he that's a place of fitna. Now there is fitna has happened in Oman Never before has this happened. And each one is trying to go with the circumstances as best as he can. They go to Makkah from Makkah, they
get news of the fact that two great armies are going to clash with one another for the first time in Muslim is the Muslim is going to be fighting Muslim.
So they marched to Basra
on the way to Boston, and their stated purpose is to make solo to bring about reconciliation between these two armies of Muslims that are going to fight one another.
They marched to Basra, they arrive at bus rally comes to know that their v bus. So he turns off his intended route and he goes to Barstow because he doesn't know who's his new army, what are they up to? Why are they here, the two armies face one another outside of Barcelona, and messengers from the side stop going to the other side of that side, besides going to the side, now you must understand the extreme confusion that exists. He doesn't know why they are there. They don't know what he's up to. So people go from one side to the other. And yesterday, we knew one another. Everyone was on the same side, how can we and two different sides, messenger start going from the one side to the other
from the one side to the other.
Eventually, they come to a point where they say that tomorrow morning inshallah the leaders from both sides will get together and this matter will be solved. There won't be any fighting.
The next morning,
before we come to the next morning, that night, they will there was a group of people who was behind all of this all the all the time behind the murder of Satan of Monrovia low on who instigated others to go and commit that murder and create the dissent that this woman is experiencing to this very present day. Why were they what were they out to do? They were there to destroy the unity of this woman at that point in time. They need they realize something if these two groups get together year, we failed in our purpose. So they get together that night.
Under the leader, and they decide we have to somehow or the other, bring these two parties not to sue, but we have to make them fight. So they divide into groups. Half of the group goes to this side, half of the group goes to the other side. This group tomorrow morning will attack that army. That group tomorrow morning we'll attack this army taking advantage of the confusion and the suspicion which is told in the back of the minds. The next morning people wake up to the clanging of swords, olive, nobody knows what's happening we thought we're gonna have so they say well, the other party attacked us. He said I knew I couldn't ask them. They wake up in the morning and we asked What
is happening? They say the other party attacked us they say, well, we couldn't trust them. The air of suspicion is still there. The suspicion and the confusion still wanes. So in palha, so it knows you're low on humor. These two men of the Ashura MOBA, Shara zubayr, is the cousin of Rasulullah Salallahu alaihe. Salam is well, Valhalla is that person on the day of or heard when an aeroplane came flying directly for the throat of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he stuck out his hand and took the arrow for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam used to say that there are two kinds of people on the face of the earth from inhuman cavanna.
There are two kinds, there is one person who is still waiting for his martyrdom to come. There is another person who has already received his martyrdom, those who died but they've already received the martyrdom and palha is one of them. He's already received his martyrdom in this
scenario himself used to say that when he should speak about the day before, he says, Veronica, Yeoman can only tell her that they will start his day, no one else's day. Why, for the way that he saved the holy life of Rasulullah sallallahu. On that day, tell her finds himself in confusion. He says, this wasn't what I came for. What did I come here for I came to make sure between two parties, I'm leaving this battlefield I'm having nothing to do with him. And he turns around and he walks away. someone sees him walking away, walking away and shoots an arrow at him. And therefore style Hi, ignore Barry Diller
The Savior of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. zubayr
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam is very, very close companion about him he said nikolina beanfield jannetty, Harare, Harare, religion that is,
every novel I have a close companion in Jannah. My close companion is this cousin of mine. So he leaves the battlefield he says, This is not what I have come for. This is not what I have come for things. He says that never was there a time in my life when I didn't know what to do, except today. At any given time. I knew exactly what I was, what I what I have to do, but today I'm absolutely confused. I don't know whether I'm here for the right purpose, for the wrong purpose. And he says I'm walking away, say now leaving me thought he sees him on the battlefield. He writes close to him. He says, Do you remember one day Rasulullah Salallahu alaihe salam saw me and you together and he
asked him obey Him. Do you love your cousin Ali says yes indeed is my cousin. He says the day will come when you will fight him and you'll be the wrong one also by so by realizes he recognizes what was said there. I'm leaving this battlefield he says on his way away from the battlefield. He is also killed by an enemy soldier. The enemy soldier cuts off his head brings it to alumna batalik to show him that I brought you the head of your enemy. He says Bashir Bashir kotti Lughnasa to be Gnar they're all the one who's killed the some of Sophia the aunt of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, I'm giving him the glad tidings of jahannam. To have killed this person by saying that Olive natali
walks through the dead bodies after this very grievous battle has taken place. He sees the dead bodies lying everywhere, and tears flow from his eyes profusely. He comes across the body of the savior of God. He comes across the body of palha. He turns him around, he looks at the face of palha lying martyred under the sons of Basra. And he says Aziz on Arriaga Mohammedan and araca moja dantata sama and his fear his tears flow like never before. And he cried and cried and cried. This is not what we have come for.
My question is, how did all of this happen? Who is behind all of this? Who is that particular group of individuals who sat on that night and plotted and a few months prior to that had plotted the murder of of Monrovia lawanna Who are those who are responsible for the split in the soma?
There is a person called Abdullah even Sabah
Rama Rama Abdullah,
who is this person called up to live in Sabah, a Jew from Sunnah in Yemen.
Outwardly ostensibly embraced Islam
with the intention of destroying it from the inside.
Join the armies of aliveness before joining the Ali, ladies edition campaign against us man, which eventually led to the murder of of Monrovia law and then join the armies of Ali. And in the armies of Lee, what he and his cohorts were the ones who went about telling people various different things, a number of things, so tell them to some people they used to go and say Do you know what? Holly is no human, really is not a human Ali is Allah incarnate. He is God in Canada is walking on the face of the earth. To another group, he used to go and say that Ali is not the fourth of the whoever he is the first of the kunafa to Him alone should have been the right of being the believer,
not to Abubakar, not tomar the idea of what Ali's
exclusive right to the healer of this person called Abdullah Saba is the one he took over spreading these ideas. Spreading idea about the rasiya says Rasulullah sallallahu COVID alima succeed me for the first time this was the person responsible for creating walk version version of history. St. Ali Vitali came to know about this person his activities and called him bring him here. He says What are you telling people that I am God says he is so then telling them he says like the fire.
If you don't recant, if we don't repent, then we are gonna burn in that fire. Even Saba and his followers say this proves that you are Allah ogham as a prophet because law you have the movie now in law Robin not only the master law of fire can punish on fire. So you are law and Oliver Vitali burnt a number of them on that day. Of those others who said Ali is better than Abu Bakr and Omar. He said Bring them here and I will less than like I would lash any calumny at any form of lies. He had to deal with these issues in his lifetime. The fitna of Abdullah, even Subbu did not die. The fitna of Abdullah in Sabah went on and on and on and grew into what we know today as Shiism.
We want to stop here for a moment.
The Shia wouldn't be very happy with the version of you see that I gave you now. Their version of history was at the Sahaba conspired against it from day one. And on the day when the lava was received by Ali. Eventually they conspired against him, Ali
Are the tollhouse obey and I said we're gonna fight him We won't let him become the halifa we're gonna fight him and won't let him become the halifa. And then what about even Sabah? They say even Saba is a figment of someone's imagination.
They They say the Sunnah in order to account for the crimes of the Sahaba
they don't want to say that the Sahaba were guilty of all of these terrible things. The Sahaba guilty of waging war against Ali. They don't want to say that so what do they say? They created a fictitious person called Abdullah and Serbian say he is a man with his ones with those He is the man responsible for all this trouble. One of them one of the contemporary alum of the Shia is a personal convert Dada lasqueti he's written a book called Abdullah and Saba and other fables Abdullah and Saba se O'Hara in this book, quite a bulky book.
He proves or strives to prove that Abdullah even Saba is a figment of the imagination of the historians of the husana who cannot face the fact that is hobble criminals. So they created this person called Abdullah and Saba. What does his research amount to it amounts to the following? He goes into the books of history, which book specifically he says most of the latest theories they draw from the history of evangelical poverty. So he goes even Jerry love it. And he looks at all those reports had mentioned even Saba. He says, Moses, this takes from women Jerry, even Jerry in turn takes from another earlier historian called save even Omar
and the Savior bin Omar, they say is an extremely unreliable person, a liar as indeed
not a real Muslim, a heretic and he is the one responsible for creating all this other lines, other stories, and then they will mention and this orientalist and that orientalist said the same as well. That's the sum total of our matava laskaris research.
There are a number of things that we want to say about this particular research. The first thing is that it is very, very selective research.
Selective research on two counts. The first count is the fact that it does not represent a full survey of everything needs to be found in history about Abdullah and Saba. If he had to open a book such as Lisa and only meezan of having them. He will find in there several pages filled with reports about Abdullah and Saba. There is about 11 different reports only one of those reports come from safe in normal. All the others come from other sources. Other sources such as the 30, the marshal from NASA, such as the most lovable yamo City, such as a number of other sources, the existence of someone called Abdullah live in Sabah is attested to in much more than just the one little souls
that he wishes us to believe that injury of poverty has taken from first point. Second point, what martaba Alaska he has very, very conveniently overlooked is the fact that forgive the history books and the Hadeeth books of the illusion. Let's go to the history of Hades books of the year. The existence of Abdullah and Salah is proven in just about every book on Shia narrators, Abdullah in subbass existence is testified to by Imam Jafar Assad, by Mr. Mohammed Al Baraka by mamzer. In the Liberian by Mosul column, these emails from the Shia believed to be invaluable. They attest to it in the book Meriva totally Jarl of Mohammed Al Kashi. There are several reports that speak about how to
live in Sabah, and the kinds of things that he did in his lifetime. If save even Omar and even Jerry rockabilly, these historians,
if they are indeed responsible for creating the legend of Abdullah bin Saba, then they must have been extreme geniuses because they managed to fool people who these other people believed to be completely infallible. If the Imams of the shield himself exists at nothing existed. I don't think that a conscientious and an honest historian of this year has any right to tell us when Abdullah and Saba doesn't exist, they have to go back to the only teacher before ours, and then tell us what do they find in there. And if they are honest, they will admit the existence of a person called Abdullah even Saba. He it is Who we believe is the original godfather of this idea that Oliver
Vitali was the only one who has the right to lead the oma alumna Vitaly is there on divine appointment Allah tala and going to the extent of saying that aluminum mithali is not just any human being he is Allah incarnate, he is God who that walks up on the face of the earth, as much as aisa. Jesus is God incarnate upon Earth, that his idea which persists up to the present day, but not in this particular branch of Shiism. As we go further, we will go into the various divisions of Shiism, and see how these various ideas have appropriated themselves and footer themselves into the various groups of the Shia. Say Now let me tell you about the Allah one who is
Eventually martyred in the year 40 after the Hegelian
now from this point onwards we're going to go history of the Imams one after the other p mom's as she I have them first Olive now Vitaly, we've looked now at his history in the time of Abubakar in the time of Omar up to his own time up to his martyrdom. Upon his martyrdom, what happens? His army, those who supported him, the people of Kufa, they elect his son signal Hassan Ali has an employee as the next leader. they elect him when he's lying on his deathbed, they asked him will you appoint a new leader for us? He says, If Allah Who wants good for this oma, he will gather them all upon the one who is best amongst them. He did not appoint any successor. He did not say that Allah has
appointed the successor, he left it to his army to his people himself to elect a leader from amongst themselves just like Abu Bakar mahama runofmine previously, so the right to elect a leader comes from where it arises from within his own mind is not by divine appointment, not by any stretch of imagination, anyway, hasn't nearly becomes the halifa thereafter, there was one battle which I did not speak about now. That battle was after this battle, this grievous Battle of the of the camel, outside of Wasilla, the Battle of gemel. That happened, what what Ali did was to send Ayesha back to Medina, he sent her back to Medina with the greatest of honor.
Say the eyeshadow Viola for the rest of her life. Whenever she used to think about her participation in that particular battle. It was not with pride that she thought about it. She used to cry, tell her scarf becomes wet with tears, regretting the day that she said out of the house, admitting that she was wrong. She was wrong, she should have stayed in the house, she should not have participated. Who was right. Say now even without him is the halifa he was right. Where does the other side come from? How do we account for the actions of the other side? First of all, they had no evil intentions. They wanted to create so like between two parties, because what does a lot Allah say?
We're in power, if autonomy, meaning what should we do for us?
The reason why they went out there was to make soul. Who was it? They started the war. It wasn't even Subbu thereafter say now he goes, because the problem with MMA we're still not settled. He goes, and at some point on the, on the Euphrates River, the two armies meet the army of early in the army of Mahalia and they fight and another grievous fight it was in which 1000s of lives were lost. If you ask the question, who was right and who was wrong, who, again, without any hesitation, say acknowledge now Vitaly is the rightful ruler. He is the one to whom the Muslims have given the br by right now we should submit to Him. But on the other hand, why is why are we not submitting to him
try and understand where he's coming from as well. He is looking for justice for the murder of his cousin. Is he right who is wrong?
He is not right. He is wrong. The halifa his word is law. You have to submit. But we understand why he is doing what he was doing. It was an extremely difficult time. extremely confusing time.
battle rages between them. Without any clear outcome, no clear winner.
Eventually after say now, alumina Vitaly is murdered.
They go back to the city of Kufa, they are Hassan Ali is elected as the Khalifa.
Again, the two armies match at one another, they start marching at one another, because this fight is not over. We don't have any clear Victor. They say it hasn't even really starts thinking in a different line. He says if these two armies continue hitting at one another, decimating one another, annihilating and destroying one another, who are the only winners, the Romans and the Persians.
The Muslims are fighting one another up to this point in time what had been happening, Islam had been spreading and spreading and spreading. For those five years of the finale. There was no spreading because Muslims were engaged with one another, they were fighting one another.
In fact, he said that at that time
when alien while we are fighting one another, the emperor of Rome sends a message and he tells a Nally or the details while we're while we are closer to him in Syria. He says uh, you and your cousin having a fight, I offer you my services while he sends a message back. If you enter this Tennessee year, me and my cousin Holly will gang up against you. Just stay out of it is our fight. But stole Islam is not spreading.
hasn't really recognizes he realizes the fact that if Muslims continue fighting this fratricidal war, this war between brothers, the only ones to gain will be the enemy, and he realizes there is a way to make peace. What's the way of making peace, sends a message to me. Let's not fight any longer. You will destroy my army. I will destroy your army who will protect the widows and the children of the Muslims, when the Roman army started marching in
Let's come to a conclusion. They decided to come together. They decided that more hour will be the ruler. And when he dies hasn't all become the rule after him. And also Allah sallallahu sallam, I predicted this when Hassan Hassan Ali was just a little kid. He took him one day on his lap, and he said that in abney hada Sayed on the son of mine, he's a great leader, law Allah who are usually happy by in a few
muslimeen. So when the time will come when allowed Allah will bring about reconciliation between two groups on account of the son of mine. But there was another reason that lead hazard nalli also to realize that the better option is to make peace with Maria when his own army heard when his own army heard that he was engaged he was going to make peace with Maria. they rebelled against him. They ransacked his own tent to the extent that he stabbed him in his in his leg. And he told him you know what I realize now I realize it Maui is better for me than what you are. You claim to be my army Wow. He is better for me that you are at least on with you. I have no honor. When he said that I
will make peace with Maui. They will people who come came to him and said Assalamu alayka mubi meaning not meaning you will destroy you have the meaning. These are the people who thought that they know better even then they Eman then say now even
some Hassan Ali. He had problems with these people in his army. His father had similar problems with them not so long before. When he said Let's march they said we don't want to March when he said make peace they say we have a problem here making peace as well. He had such problems with them. His son hasn't had similar problems with them. Huawei becomes the ruler in his lifetime it was agreed hasn't will become the ruler thereafter, but in his lifetime, Hassan Ali Ebner Vitaly, but I'll be alone Homer dies from poisoning, who's responsible for the poisoning?
The fingers start pointing, who is responsible? it he said that Mao is responsible for poisoning him? it he said that now your son yazeed is responsible for poisoning him? Who is responsible? Let's listen to Hassan himself. He saw his brother Hussein, come see him. He says My dear brother, just tell me who is it?
Please just tell me who is it? He says I'm not going to tell you who it is. If it is who I think it is.
Then Allah will deal with him. If it's not him, why shouldn't and why should an innocent person be killed on my behalf? I have a suspicion I don't know who it is. He doesn't know how he himself didn't know it is she has tonight today? No it is it was more our It was your z they were the ones responsible. And how did they manage to do so? They say he had a wife has another wife called Jada, Vinton Ashraf, and they sent a message to all that murder your husband I'll marry you after that. I'll give you this death and the other. Now it's easy to accuse a woman long after her death. But if you look at it Jada been to Russia. See, she was really a murderer and a poison and everyone knew
about it. You think any man would marry her thereafter? Who's gonna marry Abdullah Ibn Abbas married her after Hassan Ali if she was a murderous, no one would have married her. This is a story a figment of someone's imagination. What what purpose in mind, just to say that Wow, he was a bad person, he was the one who is responsible for it. And in this way people have made up their history. So who is responsible for the poison essay not even to be seen as an Allah knows who it is Hassan himself was not prepared to say who it is, while he becomes a ruler. While we are rules very peacefully for 20 years, up to the year 60 after the hegira when he dies, and he makes a very, very
bad choice at the end of his life. No excuses for this he makes a very bad choice. What is bad choice?
a new practice my son will become the halifa after me.
My son he has he will become the halifa after me. He has he was by no means a good person. There are those historians who would go out of their way to try and show that oh yes he was a good person. So as I'm concerned such excuses do not cut any ice is it was not a good person. Especially not when compared to the likes of Jose end of gnarly when compared to Abdullah Abdullah and Omar, Those sons of the Sahaba he has he doesn't even come close to the dust of those persons there. What we did was by no means right he dies he leaves his son. He has it. He has it was not a good person. And therefore Satan Al Hussein, no Holly fields at the time has come
for revolution. We have to get rid rebellion against us. Fast ruler This is a religious person we cannot have more we can still have he wasn't. He was okay. This one year we cannot have. But Hussain Ali cannot
read Rebel on his own. He needs supporters. So he's sitting in Makkah and let us start arriving at his residence where he's staying in Makkah
Letters from were letters from the city of Kufa. This is the year 61 after the hegira
letters come from Coover and people telling Hosein come to us. We will support you against this person
is unsure at first whether to go or whether or not to go.
He sends his cousin Muslim even appeal to the city of Kufa to find out is everything okay? Most of them even after you those two Kufa, he enters the city starts speaking to the ringleaders they all tell him no problem tell Hossein to come. Hussain sets out from Makkah with his family, with his brothers, Abubakar and Omar and of man and his own sons, Omar of not all of them are together with him. They traveling where to go for for what purpose to establish proper Islamic justice, not the justice of yours he
on the way to go for a while they're on the way where it gets out.
That Hussein is on his way to Kufa he has EDS about it in the center obaidul live and Ziad
took over as the new governor and say, Get hold of the situation there. get control of the situation because COVID is slipping out of our grasp. Or the the lines he had marches into Kufa. What is phase closed? The people of Kufa think Mashallah Hussein has come. This is not him, saying this is the one who was sent to take control of the situation to stop prosiding from coming to go over.
When the people of Kufa when the Shia of Kufa realize that this is not something new has come, that the game is out that they have been discovered. What do they do? They all turn back on their heels 1000s of them and send letters to her sign and say, Come on, we'll support you. When Hossein arrived at a place called Karbala. None of them were there to support him.
Housing arrives at Karbala, there is no one there to support him. Those 1000s of people have COVID he said come not a single one of them is there to support him.
And as we will discover inshallah, within next few weeks,
he meets with the governor of this army sent out to stop him.
He says, Give me one of the options allow me to go back to Medina or allow me to go to sea to obey the license he had, what he has either rather or allow me to go to the borders where the enemies are and I will make Jihad for the rest of my life. They say no, we will fight you and they fight him.
And this old man grandson of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam Rihanna to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his shoulder around him a cut down one after the other until only Jose in stands and Jose into is attacked and Jose into his beheaded and Hussein's bloody shed on the sense of Karbala, who is responsible.
Within a few weeks time go to
the Al bait foundation in will discover who's responsible. Shimmer is responsible. He has he is responsible obey the light as he is responsible. aboubaker normal responsible for death, but there's one other party who no one wants to point a finger at though she of Kufa who call their mom and they told me ma'am, come on, we'll support you. And when the moment was there, they were not there for him. When the moment came, they were not there for him. Then they became very, very docile and obedient subjects of the oma year the ruler yazeed. When Hussein's life was in danger, they were not there to support him. Karbala was a tragedy Karbala was a crime against the Holy Blood of Rasulullah
sallallahu wasallam. Who's responsible for it? That Oh my ruler, or by no lines he had he's responsible. He has he does this one symbol, but the Shia of Kufa are equally responsible. On account of them. The Holy Blood of Hussein was shed on that day. One year later, one year later, they come together. Now they've become very, very, very
sorry, very great what they have done. One year later, they come together, and they start an expedition and say we'll take revenge for the killing, of course, when they come together the sport called Karbala.
And that entire night they spend crying.
They cry and they wail and they lament, why are they crying? Why are they wailing? Why are they are they lamenting, because they admit their own complicity in the middle of resign? the very, very first Ashura celebration of the Shia commemoration of the killing of Hussein was one in which they admitted their own guilt. Today, the finger of guilt is pointed at everyone but themselves. That finger of guilt gets pointed that he has it. It gets pointed And oh, by the lines. Yeah, it gets pointed at home or even sad. It gets pointed at the bottom on and off, man. It gets pointed everyone but the car themselves. It was not their first betrayal of the annual bite. It most certainly
wouldn't be their last. they betrayed
I live near Bali, they beat at some house and they beat at San Jose in not very long thereafter they will be three others as well.
After this, those who claim to be followers of the Ahlul bait, they divide amongst themselves. Those who claim to be the followers of the Ahlul they they divided amongst themselves. Some of them say Ali has another son. We will follow him.
The paperwork is one call aside and Emirati. He says, Allah in imita mean cooperation with Allah tala baritones Allah says the true rightful ruler some Quraysh only four Who are those first of all is Ali and after Ali who for simpleton siboto Eamon in was rockin was able to hire but who Karbala or the first to Hassan Ali and then Jose No, no Ali who was killed that Karbala and then who's the third one was able to lie, you know the Hata Jaco kodomo haleiwa Oh, there's another third son. He'll never taste of death. He won't taste of death. He'll remain alive for a long time. He will remain alive for a long time until eventually he comes back that was early his other son Mohammed.
They said Hassan is gone Hussein is gone. Mohammed ignore Hannah via won't die. What will happen? What will happen to him? The yerba la Rafi him Xamarin and he is gone into Hebrew is gone into occultation. Where's he gone into occultation occultation means you cannot see him. He is somewhere out of this world in another dimension. The value of Allah you Rafi hymns a man
is staying at a place called robber. There's a mountain there he is being fed with water and honey and is waiting till the time is right and then he will come back. At that time the Shia only had four times not 12 for imams Ali Hassan Hussein and then the bulk of them said we are waiting Mohammadi. Mahavira is an axiom. When he died they say he didn't die He is coming back. When he never came back. Then they said no, the real Imam is not him is the son of course I mean, it is it is a new hobby the
ollie is a new hobby Dean was the only male survivor of the massacre of Karbala. He spent the rest of his life as a pious ascetic scholar Harlem in Medina, spreading ailyn, helping the poor, upholding the legacy of his grandfather, never lifting a sword against anyone. He died in the year 95 after the hegira without ever having attempted another insurrection, not against the rulers of the time against no one. He lived a life of seclusion withdrawal. There was she claimed to act in his name. At that time, there was a chap going around, who called himself matar, even though we all buy coffee. This person claimed to be an AVI, he says I'm the newbie, and the robber who has sent me
that Allah SNPs
he was killed in his theory did not survive. But he started something he's left an imprint on history. At that time when he was going around. His claim was we're going to take revenge on the killers of Hussein. So he started, he gathered an army, and he hunted them down wherever he could find them. And he engaged in warfare with the oma yards. And he used to tell his soldiers before the time that I will allow that to rob now, a label has been falsely claiming so of course, he says he's informed me that we're going to win this battle. And then they lose the battle.
When they lose the battle, and he says bodily, Allah changes mine. Allah wanted us to win. But since we've lost now we've changed now this year. I know that it's somewhat ludicrous, but intended to tell you something. It's intended to tell you that this is how she isn't imagined he see. If you go today this year up today you believe in this concept of this concept of Buddha which basically means I didn't know and then I realized, applying such a term to allow that or the rehabilitative the term afterwards. But this is where the origins of it come from coming from. It arises out of mortality.
Who last was when he was supposed to have won them. And since he couldn't belongs it Allah is wrong, Allah made a mistake. Now the will anyway, life goes on. So the NLRB then passes away in the year 95, after the the Shia now claim, the Imam after him his his son, Mohammed Al Baraka, Mohammed Al Burchill, a great alum of Medina, a great great scholar, a most pious person, equipped with all the right qualities, if he wanted to be the halifa he had all the right qualities. He did not have the right followers though. They were people who claim his We are your people, you come and we will support you. He used to say,
knowing the bitter experience of his forefathers and and him saying, he said, US BATNA. While it is hard on our learner me money and
today there is such that we have no worse enemy than those people who claim to love us.
They've sat back on their couches all and said, We are the lovers of the family of Muhammad. These are the greatest enemies of the family of Muhammad. When the family of Muhammad needed them, they were not there. So he lived the life of offering of withdrawal in Medina, he did not engage in any warfare. He engaged in work in teaching him narrating the Hadith which he had heard from his grandfather from his father from his grandfather. Also in that at that Hadith, which he heard from another teacher of his who's another teacher, job, he didn't know Abdullah the guy it's a hobby that was a hobby you can be found in Bukhari and Muslim and everywhere else, these members of the
household of us Allah sallallahu Sallam narrated from all the Sahaba the alano that they knew not only from their own line, they never thought of themselves as people who have a claim alone to Hawk. Zeno. labin his father used to say, and I mentioned this in a previous lecture he says yohannes A buena hobble Islam people if you're gonna love us, love us as Muslims, from Allah He masala Bina Hoboken, Hata mahalo inara your love, has he such a level that it's become a spot on our face is become a mark on our honor, because of what your people are believing about us. People think we actually teaching people that we are gods, and that we are higher than prophets, and that we have
the aim of the hype and all of these things. So don't say these things about us himself. He tells them love as the way Islam says, You must love us. Nothing more, nothing less.
The Ahlul bait living in Medina had to deal with the problem of people far apart, who's with people, the descendants, the intellectual descendants of Abdullah live in Saba, who made up ideas of their own and ascribe to the unknown by the family of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And the family of Allah sallallahu wasallam are free from any such associations.
One member of this family zeyneb nalli, the brother of Mohammed Al Baraka, the younger brother, the first one to start traveling of the unknown by he travels, he comes to Cove and he finds what people are saying, he says, My father brought me up, he never taught me these things. And I think this must be the third time that I'm repeating the story that you tell him that the reason your father did not teach you these things was because he knew you would reject them if he had told you so your father didn't teach you so that he can say, Well, my son didn't know the alibi. He never knew about these things that people were saying about them. So whose religion is this? Is this religion of the day?
Or is this the religion of those who claim to be the followers of the add on by
Mohammed halbach dies in the year 114 after the hegira
the car split amongst themselves. Some she has a Mohammed Al Belkin is not dead, he will come back. Some says let's be honest, let's be realistic. He's died. Who's the next man? They say the next few mommies is some Java sodic. java sodic loves his life in Medina, never traveling out except for Hajj to Mecca. never went to Kufa never been to all of those places, living in Medina the life that his father had lived before him, a life of seclusion, a life of rabada a life of engaging in or even a life of supporting the poor and doing good works. And this year, they come from time to time from their cities where they live, pass through Medina go back and tell stories about the Imam. And we've
seen the stories that they tell them Hallmark or fabrication is very very clear. About Jaffa toes. He says they are hard either so contradictory that you cannot find a single hobby that is not contradicted by another. This is the legacy that they ascribe to that alone by jofra sodic dies in the year 148 after the hegira the sheep are in major consternation why major consternation because up to now they had this in mind that the eldest son of the Imam is an axiom the eldest son of the man must be the next him I'm a mama to Phil aquabounty Meanwhile, the mom The problem is the eldest of Imam Jaffa sladek son, the elders of his sons was someone called a smile and the problem is that
he smiled died in his father's lifetime his father was alive when the son dies so the question comes up now in the father dies who becomes the Imam? The Shia are split into various different groupings
which groupings do they split into? First there is a group that claims that the Imam is in the next eldest one Abdullah and after that group is called the fact
Then there is another group that says no his son Mohammed is that it ma'am? Then there's another group they say no essenza Korea is that it ma'am? And then there's another group that says jump Muhammad jump all the other ones right to the youngest one His name is Marcel Calvin, he is anyway mom. Now if this was a clear cut matter about who the Imam is supposed to be, would they be this kind of confusion. To add to the confusion is another group that says chavara sodic. didn't die. He made like he died but he will come back at the end of time again.
wholesale confusion. Most of the CIO at that moment in time, follow the line of Abdullah Al after. Most of them have the fact they follow that particular line. He
Eventually the line that will dominate will not be that line. But it will be the line that follows the younger son or attach themselves to the Imam of the younger son. Moza. I'll call him now. Yeah, I want to stop for a moment. I want to go back to an earlier one, when Zaid ibn Ali, came out took over.
Then he led a rebellion against the oma yards. He was warned, don't trust the people of Kufa. they betrayed your grandfather. they betrayed your great grandfather, they will betray you as well. He says, but they've given me the boyar 40,000 of them or give me they buy these on do not trust these people. Just before the battle starts, what does he ask them? As we have seen last week? One little question. What do you say about Abu Bakr and Omar? Why does such a question originate from Oliver Vitali? Did he teach his children this? Well, he named his own son robocall, he named his own son Omar. He wouldn't go about testing people Eman by asking them. What do you believe about the
blowback and Omar because to me, it's very clear. Omar is his son in law. abubaker is one of after whom he named his own son. Something has happened whose influence is that by now you will know the answer to his influence is that is Abdullah live in Sabah. This Abdullah live in Sabah, who told people that there is a rift between the albite on the one side and the Sahaba on the other. So if you want to see if someone is on the path of the Shia, just ask him this question. What do you believe about Abu Bakr and Omar Zayed even Ali was his honest person has ever walked this earth? He says Karna was he ready? For Allahumma Walla
Walla Allahu Ahad amin alibi et Illa Allah Houma. He says these are the two ministers of my grandfather Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I have nothing but good to say about them. I have no bad word and not a single member of my family has anything bad to say about them? The response is what they say Say it. Can you be any man when you think good of Abu Bakr Omar, you can be cannot be any Imam 40,000 people are giving them that 40,000 depart at the drop of a hat. So you're not our Imam. How can our Imam be someone will say something good about about Abu Bakr and Omar, Xena, Allah says, Allah whom Allah he could follow her hussaini yet and they have done with me
they have done with Jose and so he says even Habu for an tomorrow rafaela go away. You are the rejecters you are that offer. That offer is another name that's applied to the shiny stream. From that moment onwards,
of zedi finale will Hosein continues. That's a separate sect of the Shia existing up to the present day, you will find them in Yemen. If you've been following the news, you would have heard of the Shia in selection in Yemen. You might have heard of the Houthis. A group in Yemen wanting to bring back the rule of zedi imaams of Yemen. That's one sect of Shia they continue up to the present day. They ruled Yemen up to the 1950s. And then there was a revolution and the army took over and the last year arm of Yemen had to flee to Britain. Right now at this moment. There is a group attaching themselves to the leadership of both rodinal Houthi
and his son Jose in
both of whom have died already. They are clamoring and they are demanding the return of the ad Imam to Yemen. Yemen must be ruled by his ad ma'am. Now there are certain in certain facts that you need to know
we getting carried away I thought we will be able to cover all of this mass of sediment he says time anyway, few more moments.
I want to bring into the picture of this particular group of Shia in Yemen. This group of Shia What do they believe they believe as follows that Abubakar Amara good persons, some of them are not too good about of man or the Allah on who they say Baba Norma good persons and the Imam. They say the Imam is not automatically Allah's appointment and him I'm only becomes an Imam. If he comes forward with the Dawa. He must come forward with a cause with a political goals. They must establish Allah's law. That's how you become an Imam. You don't become an Imam. Just because you are the son of an Imam, you must do something to prove your mama. That's his ad believe
it he said that those IDs are the closest of all the various groupings of the Shia to the Hello Sunnah. There's truth in the statement, and there is some untruth in it as well. That's because we cannot generalize for the ladies. They are three different groups of societies in history they were three groups. The one is called the Salima and iya The other one is called the battery year and the last one is called the jar or the year, the jar or the have every bit as caustic, injurious statements.
To make about the Sahaba as the if the others yeah I have, they are the ones that have continued. The ladies in Yemen are not the ladies of the textbooks. The ladies of Yemen
are as vehemently opposed to many of those figures of the Sahaba as the if not actually the twelver Shia of Iran and elsewhere are. So while it is true that amongst us it is there are those who are very close to the husana it is also true that there are those who are as far away from the aluna as if not actually as amazing she are. We take cognizance of that fact. The ladies are what they are branch of the car, they follow the line of the Denali, but to them Emma is not by inheritance, Emma is by work, you have to come forward and do something for it. As for the attitudes towards as a hobby, hello, I know some of them are good. Some of them are not so good to us harbor. The line that
has continued with the ladies happens to be the jell o the one the one that's not so good amongst the scholars many have come across and become available sooner. Well Gemma like Mohammed Ibrahim, Allah zeal, like Mohammed even is married a Sinani the author of Zulu salam, like Muhammad Ali shamkhani, the author of Nayland odar. These were all people who came from as ad background, and they came over to the side of the Aleutian novel Gemma because of the close relationship that that does exist between them. We jump from there very quickly. We leave the Denali and the ladies of Yemen behind to other sects of the Shia that only I want you to look at. After Java sodic. After
Java Sadek. There's wholescale confusion. Remember who they originally man was supposed to be his Marine, but he's married died. So once again that statement of bad appears, which statement is mine was supposed to be the Imam but Allah didn't know that his mind was going to die, now is my ill has died. Therefore the next person moves on Calvin will have to become the other Imam. So the moose and Calvin line will continue. The ismar in line will continue as well. The is Marie line continues up to the present day, up to the present day. Those people they drop out of circulation for a while, after about 200 years. They pitch up again in North Africa in Tunis in a place called Alma the way a
person called Obaidullah Alma de establishes a new state. And he will state that state in North Africa eventually overruns all of North Africa, including Egypt. They are the faulty means of Egypt. They are the ones who built modern Cairo as we know it. They are the builders of Al Azhar for 250 years they continued ruling in that part of the world until eventually Salahuddin Allah you will be removed them from there. They continue up to the present day in two groups of this year. The one is called ohana group. You might have heard about the person called Kareem Han. He claims to be the 49th direct Imam from that line, this line of our Han they still have that original belief that the
Imam is a walking God on the face of this earth. Very man ohana is believed to be what a walking God incarnate. He says makes a law that makes Allah He says don't make Salah don't files don't do anything. drink wine, eat pork eat ribeye than they do because he is God. There's no Quran. There's no sun, there's only that particular Imam. There's one group of them. The other group is called the bajas. You'll find them in East Africa you will find them in India Pakistan.
They were a very very distinct kind of dress. kneeling white clothing with a very distinctive kind of coffee on the heads as well. They imagine they lost the Imam disappeared someone is the is called a middle Amir, a little child of five years old disappeared there waiting for him to come back. In the meantime they have a line of representatives called the diary Mortlock or the diary drive the present diary 41st diary I think he is is called berhanu Dean they will call him syedna burhanuddin. Based in the city of Baroda in India, he is the one that they differ to, they are called the bajas. So of this line, the ismar ealey line they exist in the world up to today. The one is definitely out
of the fold of Islam, those who claim that our Han is a God incarnate the out of the whole of Islam, who says so we the Sunni says Oh, Iranian friends conquer, even they say even they feel it's right to say that some she has out of the fall of Islam. And they do not feel any compunctions of saying well the sake of unity now because if you cross certain lines you out of the fall of Islam, the other group the bohras will still exist in some part of the world because it's so difficult to determine what they really believe. Therefore we suspend judgment on them they exist but they're a small group. They don't have a country of 4050 60 million people like the other uranian she I have
therefore we don't pay too much attention to them. The Iranian shy of a country they have a presence all over the areas which they do inherit they do inhabit rather and they eat mama continues in this particular line muscle Calvin after muscle Calvin they go on to the next Imam Ali arriva
I just want to point out something Ali Riva dies in the year 203, after the hedgerow. In the year 203. The year after he dies, someone else will die, that someone else will die in the year 204. That person is in the Lima Mohammed bin
There is a chef theory.
Just a comparison very quickly. Imam Shafi Ramadan Lai Ali dies at the age of 54. He leaves behind a legacy. He is both a malefic. He is laid down the ground rules of a soul, and you can still find his works in excellent right up to the present day. He is madhhab continues uninterrupted the very first copy of the rissalah that he wrote
that was written in the handwriting of his name, and he stole the accent in the world up to today. Where is the legacy of young Shafi alive and kicking? On the other hand, Imam Ali revoir. The car claim is the seventh eighth Imam. They claim that this is the Imam and he is the one whose position is higher than that of the Gambia, Ali hemos. Salatu was Salam and his knowledge is directly from Allah and all of these things. Our question is, what legacy did he personally leave not much of a legacy we are his books. With all due respect to these features of the bite. We love and respect them they are the family in their veins flows the blood of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
But greatness in this oma is not by blood, greatness in his own minds, but to him Allah bestows it. Having the honor of the blood of Allah Salallahu Salam in your veins is a major honor. And we will continue to respect and honor that descendant of Allah salallahu alayhi wa sallam, but Allah gifts to whoever he wishes, he gave it to her Ba ba ba ba ba, black slave of Makkah, whose hair was like paper cones, and he's the Mufti of Makkah. He is not from Korea ish. He's not even an Arab. He gave to Abu hanifa Norman, that Persian whose grandfather entered Islam, he gave it to Allah gives him wherever he wishes. Those who contributed towards this oma to the greatest of the oma did not have
to belong to any particular bloodline. They belong to all colors, all races, all families. So with all due respect to the family of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, we find that those who have contributed to the greatness of this oma and to the preservation of the legacy of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam will often not have that rule by it. Why? Because Allah gives guidance where he wants to, I'm going to jump very, very quickly.
There's a few very, very interesting things that I wanted to say in between but in consideration of the time, the last Imam dies in the year 260. The 11th Imam dies in the year 260. He dies without leaving a child. So they were only 11 imams in that line, not 12 as people would claim. The 12 is a victim of some figment of someone's imagination, as I have wanted to say tonight, but my time is too short. I just want to make one little comparison he dies in the year in the year was 260. After the age of this Hassan lasqueti. Before him his father died in the year 254 254 55 annual hardy died at that time, who also dies at the same time. 256 after the jaw dies a person called Mohammadi smile
Buhari 261. After the aedra dies, his urine Muslim even had yakushi. These two men, these two great Harlem's they went into the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. They studied it, they devoted their lives to it. Till eventually they brought about these two great books on Buhari and Muslim, a gift to this oma, the highest level of historical authenticity ever recorded. The highest level Who are these not of the hallowed weight. And when we ask that we love and respect the family of Rasulullah, sallAllahu wasallam deeply. But in terms of contribution, we have to say that what was left to us by Buhari, what are left to us by Muslim has been more valuable to us than the legacy of
these two particular imams with all due respect. When we look at what the Shia have, you would expect to have the hadith of these imams amongst them, you would expect that they have it amongst them. You expect that when they didn't arrive? How do you then read from the 11th Imam from attempting them? No, they don't. They need from our own lot of
spurious figures on the side,
from this one on that one, and that one from you on Java sodic, not from him, jofra sodic son, not from his son, not from his son, from who from a whole lot of people on the side. Our question is, whose legacy is this? Is this the legacy of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam? Or is this the legacy of those particular persons who for their own interests, for their own purposes, fabricated the legacy ascribed to the holy noble family of azula sallallahu Sallam and say that this is a legacy of Allah sallallahu sallam. This is proper deed and everything else is a corruption. Next week in sha Allah,
there's so much detail. One hour was not sufficient. I had to skim over some of the detail
