Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

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

How are you all doing?

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

Now the windows suddenly are louder so to him get him a maverick for the Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim probably slightly further away a silly MD mg Wilderotter melissani of koko de probenecid and Irene No.

00:00:26 --> 00:00:38

I was willing to shadow energy investment or monitor him. inshallah, we will study the same Hadees the last Hadees of kuttabul ye and inshallah we'll go over the explanation of this hedgies

00:00:39 --> 00:00:55

along the celerra Muhammad Anwar the early Mohammedan canossa later Allah Ibrahim, where are the early Ibrahim in naka hamidah Majeed Allahumma barik ala Muhammad in where are the early Mohammed in come about Dr. Allah Ibrahim

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

Ibrahim in Naga hamidah Majeed

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

had done Abuja man, and how can we do not here in Abuja man al hakam. evening after he narrated to Mr. Buhari So Mr. Buhari is taking this Hadees from Al hakam, even after Allah abona schreiben sure I've informed us from who are in his region from Missouri. If you notice at the end of the Hadees, if you go all the way at the end, right at the end of the Hadith, it says Raja who slowly have no case and we're used to we're Martin Martin and his re at the end of the Hadith, Amanda is mentioned again, and three other narrators are mentioned who narrated the Hadees from Missouri and over here who took the Hadees from Missouri. So Sheree took the Hadees from Missouri as well. And there are

00:01:45 --> 00:02:20

three other narrators who took the Hadees from Missouri as well. So in the knowledge of mumble hottie, he knows that at least four people narrated this Hadees from Mr. Missouri. So imagine the strength of the chain. He's mentioning one over here but at the end he's mentioning three other managers from Missouri, California obey the law him near Abdullah him the earth better. If you miss Rudin and Abdullah heavner Besson abajo who are delivering our best he's narrating the Hadith from who and Baba Sophia and Abner Harbin Bara Who? Abu sufian He is the one who narrated this to who are the live in our best.

00:02:21 --> 00:02:49

And what did he say? That and the hero killer? Oh Salah la fille rochman min coration that heraclius had sent for him while he was in a Camel Caravan of Quraysh heraclius hirako had sent for who who had he called for Abu sufian. Now heraclius are hirako This is the name of the Roman King hirako is his actual name. It's not his title. It is named hirako.

00:02:50 --> 00:02:59

And this Roman King was the king of the Byzantine Empire from 610 to 641 ad.

00:03:00 --> 00:03:51

And his title was placed in Arabic What's the title pay for coffee outside raw Python. And in English language it's known as Caesar, CA e s AR. This is just as the Persian kings their title was Cyrus right the Indian kings their title was Nicolas no Joshi and the Egyptian kings at the time of musasa. Their title was film. So the title is different from the actual name. His name is Rocco, and his title is Pacer. Now many people they get confused between Hercules and heraclius. They think that Hercules and iraklis are the same they're not. Hercules, according to Greek mythology is their God. Hercules is the name of a Greek God in their mythology. And this is heraclius hirako. All

00:03:51 --> 00:04:30

right. They're two completely different individuals of history. And by the way, Hercules is known to be a person before and according to their mythology when he died, he became a god. So anyway, they two are completely different because many times when you're typing this word, in the for example, a Word document you'll see a red underline. So when people right click, they find Hercules. That's different. Okay. The two are completely different. So hirako he called for Abu sufian and Abu Sufyan was in what for Iraq women coration he was in a Camel Caravan and it is said that these people were around 30 in number so 30 people have the courage had gone to a sham for their journey and what

00:04:30 --> 00:05:00

cannot dissolve on rashami Phil modality cannot sue the law he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made the fear of us Viana will co founder Corporation. They were merchants doing business in a sham. What is a sham a sham. This is the area comprising present a Syria as well as Palestine as well as Lebanon as well as Jordan. So today a sham includes What? Syria, Palestine Lebanon as well as Jordan. So don't think a sham to be only Syria no at that time.

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

I refer to all of these four countries, right the entire region. So they were in a sham and they were doing business over there at which time at the time when Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam had a truce which truces this with treaties this off who they be with I was a fan and the disbelievers of Quraysh. So they went to heraclius were for adobo, woombie elior. So they came to heraclius at Ilia. Now this shows that this incident took place after the Treaty of her debut. Remember that, before the treaty, the Muslims in Medina and the kuffaar, in Makkah, constantly they were fighting one battle after the other, since the prophets are a lot of sentiment migrated, so

00:05:40 --> 00:06:18

many battles already taken place, and not just the battles, but even small conflicts had taken place. And constantly both parties felt threat from the other. Now, after the Treaty of Westphalia, there was peace in the region. And because of that piece, what happened? The Prophet sallallahu wasallam, he sent letters to the neighboring empires, the kings of the neighboring empires. And on the other hand, the kadesh, what did they do? They resumed their trade journeys very peacefully. Because remember the Battle of brother? Why did that take place? their trade caravan was coming back to Makkah, isn't it so and they felt the threat that the Muslims are going to attack, so they sent

00:06:18 --> 00:07:03

an army to protect their caravan. So you can imagine how trade was not easy anymore for the coalition even so once the Treaty of her davia was, in effect, what happened, the courage they set out for their trade journeys. And it is said that it is reported by his help, that he said that we were a trade fearing people, and the wars with the Muslims had consumed us. So when the truth of academia was in effect, I set out as a merchant to a sham with a group of other places, by Allah. I don't know of any man or woman in Makkah, except that they sent me with their goods for trade. So it was a huge trade caravan. Almost every individual in Makkah man and woman they sent their goods with

00:07:03 --> 00:07:42

this group so that they could bring back profit for them. And they said that even women they sent their gold jewelry, along with this trade caravan. Why? Because everybody wanted more because they hadn't had good trade for a very, very long time. So it is said that while they were in a sham, abusive Yan said that he rightly said to his police chief turn a sham upside down until you bring a man from his people whose people the people of Prophet sallallahu Sallam so that I may inquire about him. So it was a few answered by Allah I in my group were at Hosea in Palestine when the police chief caught us and took us all to the Royal Court. So we see that hirako had sent his people to

00:07:42 --> 00:08:01

find some people from Arabia, so that they could come to him and he could ask them about the profits that alone isn't. The question is that why did he want to investigate about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? Remember that after the Hadith among Buhari reports, the incident that has been alleged by ignored or ignore,

00:08:02 --> 00:08:40

and directly as he, as we know, was someone who practiced in the gym, he believed in the stars. And through that he had come to know that the people who practice circumcision, their kingdom had risen, isn't it so as we learn at the end of this Hadith, and also he had received the letter of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So these two incidents had already taken place what to that through his Illumina genome, he was afraid that his kingdom was going to collapse very soon. And this kingdom of the people who practice circumcision was going to rise. And secondly, he had received the letter of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, inviting him to Islam.

00:08:41 --> 00:09:15

So he didn't just want to accept he didn't just want to submit he wanted to know he wanted to investigate the matter, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam very seriously. So you can say as a part of his research, as a part of his investigation, he wanted to ask who the people of Arabia, about the profits are a lot of sudden he wanted to get first hand information about the profits or losses. And this is why he sent his police chief were throughout his empire to look for anyone from Arabia, so that he could question them about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:09:16 --> 00:09:56

And we see that the caravan in which Sophia was they were brought to heraclius where well, whom we aelia in aelia. And what is Alia? Alia, is Jerusalem you can see, it means the house of Allah and it's known as obviously where was it in Jerusalem? So in Jerusalem, it was that it was a piano and his companions were brought and the incident that is mentioned in this Hadees took place. And later on, what happened was that miracle, he left India and went to hims and over there he received the letter of his companion inshallah, I will tell you about that, as we study the Hadees.

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

So, for Adele, who will humbly aelia

00:10:00 --> 00:10:39

alcovy mejlis he will hola who are Obama or room Iraqis call them in his court and he had Roman governors around him. And in Sohail Buhari, indictable jihad, it is narrative, the same Hadees but a slightly different version that was up here and said that we entered upon him while he was sitting in his royal court wearing a crown. So over here, the crown isn't mentioned but over there, what is mentioned that when they went to him, he was wearing a crown. And in the narration of in a second it is mentioned that he had a state dignitaries as well as as religious scholars as well as his ascetics near him. So over here, it's only the elite meaning the dignitaries but elsewhere, we also

00:10:39 --> 00:11:21

learned that he had all sorts of people with him in his court, the priests as well as the ascetics, as well as the, you can say people who were high up in, in the government, so he had all sorts of people over there. So then what happened? So mother, who was the arbiter Germany, he, then he called for them, and also his translator, why did he need a translator? Because hirako did not know Arabic, and obviously was a fan and his people also did not speak their language. So what happened for Karla au come Accra buena seven, we had originally lady years or more unknown Navy, that he asked that whom amongst you is the closest in relationship to this man who claims to be a prophet. So Abu

00:11:21 --> 00:12:03

Sufyan for color, Abu sufian, for call to enter Accra, buena Sabah, so it was a few unresponded that I am closest to him in kin in relationship. Now. I was a fan How was he closest to the prophets that a lot of him came in relationship, the fourth ancestor of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as well as a Luciferian was the same. And who was that? Who was that? Does anyone know? Are the munaf both of them were from Bhanu, Abdullah Neff, the supplier of Quraysh, and abdomen F is the fourth ancestor of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as well as abou Sophia, and optimal Neff son, who was Hashem. He is the great grandfather of the prophets of the lotus, and their optimal naps other son who was of the

00:12:03 --> 00:12:45

shrimps. He was a great grandfather of Abu Sufyan. So anyway, obviously, both were very close to each other in terms of lineage. Now, why would hickel ask for the person who was closest to the Prophet subtleness? And in lineage? Why do you think so? Why not just any man from the Arabs? Why the closest relative to him? It would prevent a Luciferian from criticizing the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Why? Because if he was criticizing him, he was in fact criticizing himself. Right? If he would criticize the lineage, the family of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he would be criticizing himself and remember that the Arabs, if somebody belonged to their tribe, right? They were to

00:12:45 --> 00:13:22

support them and honor them, even if they were the greatest criminals of their own sight, isn't it? So? So this is why hirako asked for the one who was closest to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in kinship? And also if you think about it, someone who was closer to you, meaning he's a relative, does he not know you more? Of course, he knows about your personal affairs, he knows about your external affairs isn't until your public affairs. So these are the two reasons that the scholars suggest why he asked for the closest relative to the Prophet sallallahu. So for Connor, so he said, meaning hirako He said, I don't know who many bring him close to me bring who close to me. I've also

00:13:22 --> 00:13:46

found the one who was closest, well coreboot was harbor who fudger alohomora in the valley, and let his companions come forward and place them by his back. Why bring Abu Sufyan close to him so that both could be face to face? Because you can imagine a court, you know, especially the court of a king is huge. So he wanted to be very close to him. And why is it that he placed the companions of Abu Sufyan behind him?

00:13:47 --> 00:13:48


00:13:49 --> 00:14:00

hirako is standing here in front of him I was standing facing Europol and behind I was a fan are the rest of the people of that caravan. Why behind I was a fan,

00:14:01 --> 00:14:42

that if I was if he answered something incorrect, if he lied, then his companions would not feel, you know, embarrassed or guilty in correcting or in denying abou Sophia, because you see what happens is that if you're looking at your friend and your friend can see you and you're speaking against them, you know, you don't have that confidence, isn't it so? So in a way, they were able to speak up against Abu sufian if the need was there. And then hirako he said the mcaliley of Germany he then he said to his interpreter, that colome say to them, tell them tell who I was if Ian's companions that in Nisa, you don't have a module that I will ask questions from this man which man,

00:14:42 --> 00:14:59

Abu sufian or another module meaning about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam for incredibility faculty boo. So if he lies, then deny what he says if he lies to me, then you have to deny what he says. So Abu Sufyan, he said for a lot he Lola

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

A woman a few aleja can even like a doctor and who, by Allah had I not been afraid of my companions exposing my lies, I would have lied about him. Look at his statement, that if I had not been afraid of my companions, exposing my lies, I would have lied against the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you see the Arabs of jelenia.

00:15:22 --> 00:15:29

They also did not like catnip at all, who lied amongst them, someone who was a coward.

00:15:30 --> 00:15:36

It wasn't someone who was a noble, someone who was dignified line did not suit him.

00:15:38 --> 00:16:22

And I also found did not want to be known as a liar, he did not want lying the act of lying to be ascribed to him. And this is what prevented him from lying. So it's as though he did not want his image, his reputation to be destroyed. Why? Because he had self respect. Yes, he did not like the profits that allowed him he opposed the profits are allowed to sell them. But he still had some self respect, which is why he did not want to be known as a liar. And this is something amazing that the Arabs have Jamelia had this much sense at least. But it's unfortunate that today as Muslims, we don't even have this much self respect. That just to preserve our reputation, just to preserve our

00:16:22 --> 00:16:41

image, you know, we abstained from lying, but it's unfortunate that this higher is not amongst Muslims anymore. So I will say again, he wanted to lie he desired, but he did not do so out of embarrassment or out of shyness out of high up out of self respect.

00:16:42 --> 00:17:21

So the first question that he was asked the mechanic, a welder, Master engineer, and who the first question that you'd have to ask Luciana about the profit sadananda Center was, and farla k for NASA muvico. What is his family status amongst you? How is his lineage amongst you? All too, I said, who are feanor Luna Subin he belongs to a good family amongst us meaning he is of good lineage amongst us He is author of noble lineage. Now why would you ask about the lineage of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? Did that really matter? If he wanted to investigate? If he wanted to research about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the truthfulness of the prophets that allowed us and why did his lineage

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


00:17:22 --> 00:18:11

Two reasons. First of all, that, at that time, the lineage of a person mattered a lot. The lineage of a person is what decided the status, the social status of a person, the lineage was noble, the social status was also high. If the lineage was not that great, the social status was not that great either. Today, what matters, your education, your work your money, isn't it so? But at that time, even money did not matter much. What mattered most was the lineage of a person. And specifically, this was amongst the Arabs. And besides this, the family of a person, doesn't it affect the upbringing of a person? It does, it affects his thinking, it affects his behavior, it affects his

00:18:11 --> 00:18:40

outlook on life, it affects what he does. So this is why hirako was inquiring about the lineage of the profits out of honors him that if he has a noble lineage, that he would not do something that is wrong, then he would have this self respect that why would I do something wrong? And stain my image or stain my lineage or my family or my tribe? You understand? So the lineage the family of a person prevented him from doing wrong things.

00:18:41 --> 00:19:21

And it definitely has an effect on a person. So this is the reason why he asked him, then Carla for help Allah hurdle, kolam income, I hadn't thought to Kabbalah who he said, has anybody amongst you, meaning the Quran? Or the Arabs? Has anyone amongst you ever claimed the same before him? Meaning Has anyone ever claimed to be a prophet before him? Well, I said no. So what did he mean by this question, that has anyone else claimed this before him? meaning is this like a tradition amongst you? Is this like a customer walks you through every now and then somebody claims to be a prophet? Or is this completely new? Because if it has happened before, then this man could be just, you know,

00:19:21 --> 00:19:59

imitating others. But if it has never happened before, then it needs some attention, then we must pay some attention to this. And we know that before the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was any messenger sent to the Arabs, after Abraham or listen him after his minor listening, no, this is why they were known as I mean the unlettered people, because no messenger was sent to them, Nikita was sent to them. And on the other hand, the Bani Israel, several messengers were sent to them as well as monks were given to them. They were known as a lucky tab. And the errors were known as will mean I look it up knowledgeable people, these people who are they unlettered so then he said, pilot for Health

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


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

About a human Malick, he said was anybody amongst his ancestors a king? peltola? I said no, no one was a king amongst them qualifies for for NASA to be aroona. Who America. He asked me to the nobles of the people are the weak among them, follow him. Faculty. So I said, Well, there are five of them rather it is the week of them.

00:20:19 --> 00:20:25

Now, tell me something. Was it really only the weak people who follow the profits on a lot of seven? mcca?

00:20:26 --> 00:20:28

No. Who else followed him?

00:20:29 --> 00:21:15

Abubakar learn who he wasn't a weak person or model they learn who he wasn't a weak person. So why is it that I was a fan replied, it's the weak people who follow him because the majority was of the weak people. And besides the Ashraf they're also known as people, especially that society, people who were arrogant people who were oppressive, people who were very unjust, but we see that those who follow the Prophet sallallahu Sallam even if they were wealthy, even if they were powerful, were they arrogant? No, were they unjust? No. So this is what could be understood as the pilot as he Dona amico soon. So he said, are they increasing or decreasing his followers? Are they increasing in

00:21:15 --> 00:21:58

numbers rather decreasing call to belly as I said, rather, they are increasing, meaning every day more and more people accept as part of a highly altered domain himself. Not only did he bother and yet Hola, Fie. kotula. He said. So does anyone have them apostatize out of displeasure for his Deen after embracing it. So I replied, No. Now, this is the case that anyone who accepted Islam did not leave Islam out of South button Lee Dini, out of displeasure for the dean out of saying that no, this thing? No, it doesn't make any sense. This this thing doesn't satisfy me. There are too many contradictions and so on. It's no there was no one who ever did this. However, we know about one

00:21:58 --> 00:22:41

person, obey the law, even judge. When he was in Makkah, he embraced Islam, but he went to the senior. What happened? He became a Christian. But did he become a Christian out of soft button for Islam? No, he became a Christian out of greed, out of worldly benefit, not out of stuff that led this is why it was up and said, No. So then, he said, Allah, for * confirm that the homeowner who Bill kdv cabela and akula Khan kotula. He said, Have you ever accused him of telling lies before he said what he said, meaning before he claimed to be a prophet. So it was if he had replied No, we have never accused him of lying before because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he was known as a

00:22:41 --> 00:23:19

sidekick. I mean, even before he became a prophet, and afterwards, even people did trust Him, which is why when he was migrating, he had several trusts of the people with him which he handed over to learn who and then he migrated to Medina. So it shows that the mushrikeen of Makkah, even though they did not believe in the prophets or alarmism, they acknowledged his truthfulness. They acknowledged his honesty. And what Abu sufian said over here is also a testament to that. And then call Avaya do call to law. When a human who female didn't learn every man who affair in on fee her. He said, Does he betray meaning Does he ever break his promises? Meaning Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam

00:23:20 --> 00:24:00

said I was Sufi and replied, No, but we are in a truce. And which truth is this referring to the soul have offered a beer with him, but we do not know what he will do in it. We do not know whether he will fulfill his promise or whether he will betray, we do not know whether he will abide by the treaty or he will break it he will go against the rules we do not know. And I will say the answer para Willem tacchini Kalamata Oda, Cynthia Cheyenne, Rouhani, Hill kalama, there was a few answered that I could not find any opportunity to insert anything, except that being the only negative thing that he could say about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was this, the only thing that he could say to

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

dent the Prophet sallallahu Sallam 's character was only this that we don't know what he will do in the future. But notice how miracle he doesn't, you know, ask him anything about this. And what do you mean, what treaty is this? And what do you fear for him? No, he completely disregarded abusive answer, because he moves on to his next question immediately. Why? Because hirako he was more interested in the past and present reputation, and character, and manner of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, not about the future, because you don't know about the future. You judge a person according to how he has been in the past and how he is at present. Because in the future, really, you don't

00:24:38 --> 00:25:00

know. A person who is untrustworthy could become very loyal and honest with you. And completely opposite things could happen. So hirako does not pay any attention to what was the answer, but it just shows that the enemies of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also recognized how good the prophets or the goddess and it was that they could not say anything negative.

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

about him even though they tried their best. Just imagine.

00:25:04 --> 00:25:46

This is how Allah subhanaw taala preserved his religion through a very honest, trustworthy messenger. We're in Nicola Allah hollowcore Aleem, he was really lasuna mean that no one could say anything against him. And you see, this is something very important that we must be very careful about as well. When we study Islam, when we study the deen, people don't look at what we're doing, or you know, the effort that we're putting in, what do they look at our character, our manner, and they will not think about, you know, she's upset because she's had such a long day, she's upset because she's going through such a difficult time. Now, they will say she's upset and look at her,

00:25:46 --> 00:26:26

she studies the Quran, the Quran has not affected her. Even a little people become very judgmental, they connect anything and everything you do with your dean, this is why we have to be extra extra careful. Because when you do something good, you're presenting a good image of the dean. And when you do something bad, you're presenting a bad image of the day, even though your actions may have nothing to do with the dean. This is why we have to become extremely careful and especially all of us sitting over here. You know, studying at the advanced level, we have to become even more careful with our actions with our behavior with our family members as well as outsiders. So then his next

00:26:26 --> 00:27:12

question was that call for help Patel to move who have you ever fought him? Have you ever had battles with him? Bolton and I said yes, we have fought with him so far. Okay for Canada leukemia, who how has been your fighting with him to Albania, Albania, who suggests in alumina one and aluminio? He said, Abu sufian replied, war is suggested between us and him. He suffers at our hand and we suffer at his hand meaning sometimes we win and sometimes he called a mother yet Morocco. What does he order you to do? What does he command you to do? What are his teachings? Yoku Allahu Allah to Sri COVID. He says, worship Allah alone and do not associate any partners with him. What

00:27:12 --> 00:27:52

through Kuma kulu, Abba, oh, come and leave whatever your forefathers say, way, Moon atmosphere that you will say that he will if he was Selena, and he ordered us with salah and truthfulness, and chastity, as well as joining relationships. Now, those of you I mentioned that he tells us to leave all that our forefathers used to do. Is that true? That the prophets are a lot of them actually say that leave whatever your forefathers used to do? No, you know, there's some people who say today, that Islam came to stop us from following our forefathers, we should not follow them. So these pious predecessors that you follow, this is wrong. They say Islam tells us we should not be following the

00:27:52 --> 00:28:32

people of the past, our forefathers. So this first generation of Muslims are Sahaba and the second generation of the Muslims in the third generation of the Muslims that have been there who people of the past, so you're not supposed to follow them. But is that true? No, you're not understanding it in the right way. When Islam forbids us from following our forefathers, this is not Muslim, meaning this is not like, don't follow them in any respect. This way they used to eat you don't need they used to travel, you don't travel. No, this is not what our Dean tells us. Our Dean tells us don't follow them in the wrong things that they do. So anyway, if you look at it, many things that I

00:28:32 --> 00:29:13

wished Aquino would do, which were good, isn't it that we were encouraged to do the same things. Like for example, hospitality slugterra him? This was a great virtue for the Arabs and look at how much it is emphasized in our Deen as well. Being good to the neighbor, being hospitable to the guest, being truthful, being honest. All of these are virtues that the Arabs recognized and also that our Deen has also emphasized greatly. Similarly, we see the machine they used to perform hajj, do we not perform Hajj? Yes, we do. But whatever wrong things that they did, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us to leave that is an utter similarity. We see that in Arabia, the women they would

00:29:13 --> 00:29:49

actually cover themselves with a big show, but how would they cover themselves? They would put a shawl on their heads and they would throw it back and show off their neck and their jewelry and their adornment. So our Dean, what does it teach us that when you wear that shawl, what should you do? Cover yourself from the front as well. So there are many things that you can use to practice. They were good and Islam retained them. In fact, we were encouraged to do them, but the wrong things that they did, we were told to leave them out completely not even go near them. And in the Quran, wherever we are told, do not follow our forefathers or to not follow our leaders. This is not

00:29:49 --> 00:29:59

general. This is only in the matters where they tell us to do what is wrong. Whether it is your parents or it is your society or it is your leader or it is your king

00:30:00 --> 00:30:42

In any respect you don't follow them when they tell you to do something wrong. In the Quran we have been taught so many times to follow the example of Ibrahim as an admin letter A B comb, Ibrahim, may letter A become your father, why does almost panatela say or become because the righteous forefathers the righteous predecessors? We are to follow them. Similarly, we see that at the time when your Kubernetes time was about to die, he asked his son's Mother bounnam embody what did they say carlu Nabu. ilaha illa. Baraka? So we see that there's following a forefathers over there as well. But obviously, it is in the matters, which are right and good. So we see over here that I was

00:30:42 --> 00:31:02

a fan, he told us to leave all that our forefathers used to do. Why do you think it was a fan would say that? Why do you think he would say that? Because he lochlan his people, what were they also doing, following their forefathers blindly. So when he said that all Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told us not to follow our forefathers, then in a way he's taking the sympathy of him.

00:31:03 --> 00:31:48

Now we see over here that he asked several questions from Abu sufian How many are they 11 the astrolabe 11 questions. And these questions, what do they show about hirako? That he was a very intelligent person. Because the questions of a person what do they reflect his mental level? They reflect his sharpness, they reflect his intelligence. So all of these questions about his lineage, about whether somebody had made such a claim before him, whether he betrays whether they have accused him of lying, how his followers are, if they're increasing or decreasing, whether any one of his followers leaves the religion afterwards, all of these questions they show the intelligence of

00:31:48 --> 00:32:33

this man. But it's amazing that he asked all of these questions and what he inferred from the information that was given to him as we learn the Hadees that it shows that he recognized the truthfulness of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, despite that he did not believe despite that he did not accept, so did his intelligence help him? No, you will come across people who are highly intelligent, who have a very positive attitude towards Islam towards Muslims, but yet they will not believe yet they will not accept, they are intelligent. So it says though they are the key, young, intelligent, whatever you do the key, yet they are unintelligent. The heart has not opened up. They

00:32:33 --> 00:33:20

are intelligent, but they're not truly intelligent. Because truly intelligent is the person who accepts and submits the Mona 15. What did they say about the believers a neutrino comma M and a sofa? What does Allah say Allah? In whom who Mustafa O'Meara millet Ibrahima elements, Sophie Hannah, the one who understands everything he has done so much research he has investigated the matter thoroughly. Yet, after acquiring all that information, understanding if he doesn't accept then he's not intelligent. Intelligent is the one who submits and accepts because the way hirako investigated the matter the profit sort of RSM over here and the reason why one Buhari is mentioning

00:33:20 --> 00:34:00

this here is to prove the truthfulness of why through secular sources. Do you understand? Because in this book, remember, he has mentioned many, many things which prove the truthfulness of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam but amongst them he mentioned the incident with Hiroko, despite the veteran did not accept Islam. Why? To show that even non Muslims they recognize the truthfulness of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Therefore, what he is true. Now you see why this Hadees is mentioned over here. The jinn they found the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as well. hirako he believed in June. And we know that you want to do is how long he was a Christian he never accepted yet through that he got to the

00:34:00 --> 00:34:40

Prophet sallallahu wasallam so it's amazing that Allah subhanaw taala uses people who are not even Muslim who don't even accept to preserve his religion deserve his religion. It's amazing. So Allah subhanaw taala uses other people as well. We're into to Allah. He established little Coleman with a local Somalia coup and obviously it refers to Muslims over there. But in this is a threat to us that if we don't serve the deen, Allah Subhana Allah does not need us that we should that you know, the truth was very clear to him, as we will read later on in this Hardee's as well as the incident remember, he mentions afterwards, you know, the truth was very evident to him. He, you know, sent a

00:34:40 --> 00:35:00

letter to his friend as well, right? He called it, he invested in it so much. But at the end, why did he not believe because of the fear of people because of the fear of losing his dunya. And you see, the reason why he was doing all of this investigation was to secure his kingdom as well. Because as we learn later, when one day he woke up and he was very

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

upsetting the people ask him what's wrong with you. He said that last night when I looked into the stars, I learned that the people who practice circumcision, their kingdom has risen, meaning they have conquered us. Right? They have become victorious over us. So he wanted to know who these people are. This is why they suggested kill all the Jews, because they're the ones who do it. So when you kill them, nothing will happen to your kingdom. So he wanted to preserve his kingdom. This is why he was doing all of this investigation. Because generally, if we see somebody who's knowledgeable about Islam, what do we want, they should accept, they should become Muslim. But it's not always the case.

00:35:34 --> 00:36:20

The intention here was just investigation for worldly purpose. This is why no matter how much he learned, he did not benefit from it. But if the intention is guidance, if the intention is to change to come closer to a loss of panel data, then even a little bit of information is enough. Arthur, so many people who don't know much about Islam, but to become Muslim, there are other people who are orientalist, they're known as scholars, great academics. They represent Islam, in conferences, in universities, they write about Islam, they are considered as great authorities on Islam, but yet they're not Muslim. It's not knowledge alone, that is needed. intention. And Nia, at the beginning

00:36:20 --> 00:36:59

of this chapter, we learned about the importance of intention, right? If the intention is correct, if the intention is of guidance, then a little bit of knowledge is also sufficient. But Allah guides, the one who wants to be guided. Remember that? When Allah says that, he guides him wherever he wills, obviously, as we have learned in Tafseer, what it means is that Allah guides the one who wants to be guided. Now, if you look at the teachings that Abu sufian mentioned over here, that when he asked him that, what does he teach you? He mentioned the core things that the Prophet sort of Addison was teaching, isn't it? So? What does it show? That the way the Prophet sallallaahu Selim

00:36:59 --> 00:37:43

delivered the message was so clear, it was so clear that people had no doubt about that. Even the enemies, non Muslims, they knew exactly what the prophets or Larson was teaching. So for color, little German, he said to his translator, Allah who say to himself, the Quran, nessa V for the quarter and the houfy, come Luna seven, tell him that I asked you about his family. And your reply was that he belonged to a very noble family fucka Danica rasuluh, tuber othinus comida. Likewise, all the messengers come from noble families, amongst their respective people, all the messengers they come from which part of the society noble, the elite are those people with noble lineage, an

00:37:43 --> 00:37:47

example of that hirakata you should have some evidence of that.

00:37:48 --> 00:38:30

Sure, I rarely center very clearly in the Quran, we learn about him Srebrenica, because his people setting biloela Baraka, if it was not for your family, we would have finished you we would have killed you. So he said, Lee, is my family more important to you or you are afraid of my family more? You know, what is my family? So, Sherry Bernstein was also from a very noble lineage. Was the alcohol parlor I had a man come handle coal for the quarter Allah. And I asked you whether anybody else amongst you claim such a thing and your reply was in the negative you said no, for call to bloke and I hadn't called ahead and cola cola who la cultura de Lune de Cabo koden de la cabina, who

00:38:31 --> 00:39:08

I say that if anyone had claimed this before him, I would have said that this man was following the statement that was said before him, meaning he is just imitating other people in order to gain power. That just as the people of the past, they said something like this, and they became very famous and very powerful. This man is trying to do the same thing was the alcohol column in Alba human Malik for the quarter Allah called to follow CanAm in a very human mannequin, called Roger juniata, Lou Mulcahy, and I asked you whether any one of his ancestors was a king. So you replied No, I say that if someone from his ancestors was a king, I would have thought that this man was

00:39:08 --> 00:39:44

seeking the kingship of his father, meaning he wanted to claim his ancestral kingdom, that he couldn't get it back through some other means. So he came up with the idea of you let me claim to be a prophet, people who believe in me, I will become very great amongst them. Was the alcohol content that the homeowner who will KDB cabela and akula Paul, and I asked you whether you have ever accused him of telling lies before he said what he said for the call to Allah. And you said no soccer that already flew under who Lamia can later on kalevala nasty reactive Allah La. So I know that he would not leave lies against people and lie against Allah. That How is it possible that a person who does

00:39:44 --> 00:39:59

not tell lies about people would lie about Allah? It's not possible. What's the ultracush law for nassetta berubah Umbra and I asked you whether the noble people follow him or the week for the quarter another I found it to be true. So you replied that it is the week of them who fought

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

him. We're home at Barrow, Russell, and they are the followers of the messengers. And he evidence of that the week or the followers of the messengers knew her and he said And remember, in the Quran, it's very clear. Rao, his people objected, that woman arakata Baraka, Illa Allah de Luna, that is only the arrival of the most despicable people amongst us who follow you. People who have no value, they're the ones who follow you. So it's the week amongst people who generally follow the messengers. What's her altucher? Is he doing amico soon for the quarter and noumea? Is he doing what adeleke Imani had done yet him and I asked you whether they are increasing or decreasing. So you

00:40:38 --> 00:41:21

replied that they're increasing. And in fact, such is the way of true faith until it is complete? What does it mean by this, that such is the affair of true faith until it is complete, meaning that true faith true Eman, it begins like a light and a light initially, it's very dim, but gradually what happens as you keep giving the fuel it will grow, grow, grow, until the light will spread and it will become perfect, it will become complete, in the sense that the entire area around it will be lit by it. So such as a man that initially there are only a few people, but then gradually, people keep accepting, accepting, accepting, until the numbers grow, and the dean is complete. Have they

00:41:21 --> 00:42:04

attainment until the dean is complete? So we see that the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam they began is very few in Makkah, but they only increased until Allah subhanaw taala revealed the ayah and the oma equal to the container. Well at mantra eleiko near Mati, what a liter dokumen Islam Medina. So in that I was revealed how many people were there it had to do with the 1000s had they at him. This is true faith, that the numbers only keep increasing and increasing and increasing until the religion is complete. And this was true, was the Ultimaker I have to do I hadn't certainly Dini BARDA and yet the hula V for the coaster Allah waka Delica, Emmanuel Hina Taha little Basha

00:42:04 --> 00:42:47

Taku that I asked you whether anyone has ever apostatized out of displeasure for his religion after having embraced it, and he replied No, and likewise is a sign of true faith, when its delight enters the heart and mixes with it completely. What does it mean by Basha Tohoku Basha? As you know, it means happiness, joy, does smile, to have a smiling face to have a happy face? When does a person smile? Or when does a person have a happy face all the time when they are happy on the inside when they are experiencing joy, when they're satisfied when they're experiencing the sweetness of something. So the happiness doesn't just stay in the heart it comes on the face as well. So what

00:42:47 --> 00:43:32

does it mean by this, that work identical Emmanuel haina to Hollywood overshadow kulu meaning such as a man when it mixes and blends with the heart and the heart experiences the joy when the heart experiences the joy, the happiness of having a man when the heart is happy? When the heart becomes happy with faith, when a man is mixed with the heart, than a man does not leave? Then a man does not leave at all. You see them when I feel clean? What do we learn about them, that a group of monastic pain initially they became believers, they became believers when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam migrated to Medina, but then soon after, they became hypocrites mataranka mozzarella this toccata

00:43:32 --> 00:44:13

nowra there was light for Lama Abbas mahalo, the hub Allahu venuti him, there was light, and what is light refer to a man? Remember the example of the eye to note as well in the eye to note also, what is the new refer to a man? So there was a man but then what happened for Allah Allah? Allah Who? The Hubba mahabodhi Allah took away that demon from them. So then when I think they were believers initially, but then they became hypocrites. So did he man truly enter their heart? No, it did not truly enter their heart because if you look at the ayah the one that I just quoted that fella Otto Atma, hola who the light only illuminated the surroundings? What does that show that the light was

00:44:13 --> 00:44:59

very dim, it was very weak, it was not strong in the first place, because it was only limited. Because if a man is strong, if a man has truly entered the heart, then it doesn't leave. If it leaves, it was never there. It was never strong enough. So this is what hirako says, What can I do, you can email her to her little Basha Tohoku was an alcoholic, and I asked you whether he has ever betrayed. So you replied further after Allah. And you said no. What are their legal rules EU law doctor and likewise the messengers they never betray, the messengers never betray. Why? Because the messengers do not desire any worldly gain. This is why they never betray who betrays

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

The one who wants to dunya is a knitter by for example, the Mona 15. You heard the Runa la Latina Amina? Why is it that they were not one maka, because their focus is what dunya. This is why when it came time to fight, they would stay behind. And when it came time to distribute the booty, they would come up. So the love of dunya is what makes a person betray and cheat others, the prophets of Allah, they never aspired for worldly gain. What did they say again and again, I do not ask you for any edges. I do not want any other from you. In Nigeria, Illa Allah, my agent is with Allah. So the messengers they never betrayed and this is exactly what Heracles said about the master worker,

00:45:42 --> 00:46:21

Delica rasuluh letter. And notice how hirakata is responding, that this is how the messengers are, this is how the messengers are, how did you know this? Because he was a Christian. He believed in the books. And in their books, they learned about messengers, and this is what he knew about the messengers, that there were honest people they were from noble families, was the altucher be my marucho. And I asked you of what he orders, you know, before this, Wasn't there a question previously mentioned that, have you ever fought with him? And hirako does not say anything about that over here about the wars, isn't it? So, but it is reported in another version of the same

00:46:21 --> 00:46:55

Hadees, which is in the book of jihadists, a horrible hottie. And it says that, that Heracles said, I asked you about the outcome of your battles with him and you told me that you fought each other with alternate success, meaning sometimes you win, and sometimes they win. And he replied that the messengers are tested in this way, but the ultimate victory is always there's that Yeah, sometimes they are defeated by their enemies, but this is just a test. But ultimate victory is for the messengers. And isn't this true for the profits of a lot, isn't it? Exactly, exactly. So then he said was the alto COVID-19 Morocco.

00:46:56 --> 00:47:40

Morocco Antara De La Hoya Toshiko Vichy way and how common repetitive oath anyway, Morocco misled It was literally what are ff? Now Hinako says over here, when herkimer owner evaluated ofan and he forbids you from the worship of idols? Did a recipient say that? No. So why did he say that? Because that's what it means. lead to Chico visa, don't do any shaquita means worship of other than Allah, following the forefathers in their context meant worshipping idols as well. And Hidaka and his people. They were not worshipers of idols, but the Arabs, they used to worship idols in particular that was their religion. They were pagans. So he was familiar with that. And this is why he says

00:47:40 --> 00:48:23

when hokum are evaluated Oh, then we're Moodle canvas. What at your city? What if? Then he says, if you think about it, these are the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam right? And if you look at them, it covers everything, the enemy or the murderer, those whom the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was calling, they got everything, though hate, no shake, solid and being good with other people. sip coffee, what is our five chastity staying away from Xena as well as other crimes, having self respect, being careful about oneself. So the method was very, very clear to them for encana, the hula Hakan so if what you have said is true for Sam Li como para poder mega Dane, then very soon, he

00:48:23 --> 00:49:09

will occupy this very place beneath my feet. Where was hysterical at that time? And Elliot, Jerusalem, so in the area of a sham, so very soon he is going to occupy this line. Did it happen? Yes, it did. Remember the expedition to the book. That was the first conflict you can say. But obviously, there was no battle but afterwards avacado the learn who he sent armies or moderno, he sent armies and during the time of Rome, Italy, learn how it was conquered. This entire area was conquered, were called upon to Ireland and the whole region lecan Avenue and the human come. And I knew that he was going to appear. How did he know? From the scriptures? Because remember that the

00:49:09 --> 00:49:50

Bani Israel, the hood, even they knew that the last messenger was coming, isn't it? Which is why we're kind of in Cabo yesterday, Hannah and Elena cafaro. So even the Christians they knew about the coming of the last messenger, but he says llama con Alou and the human comb. I did not think that he would be from you. And this is exactly what the Bani Israel practice well, they thought that the last messenger would be from among them, not from the Arabs. So Hiroko also shows us surprise over here. Follow me Our limo and he saw a lady that addition to the car who if you think about it, miracle, yes, he did not believe but it did. He acknowledged the fact that yes, Muhammad Sallallahu

00:49:50 --> 00:49:59

Sallam was the Prophet. Yes, he did. But we see that there are many people who don't even acknowledge that he was the messenger and in fact what what have they done?

00:50:00 --> 00:50:19

They have further altered their books to even hide the characteristics, the information of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. But we see that the Christians of that time, even then you the use of that time, even then you both of them knew. So he says that if I knew I could reach him, I would go out of my way to meet him that addition to the cart,

00:50:20 --> 00:51:04

and follow only Ireland will need a closely related addition to the car who will overwinter in the who loves to sell to uncover me. And if I were with him, I would certainly wash his feet. Why does he say this? What is it show his extreme humility, and it shows that perhaps a low arland he did have an inclination to accept, he did have an inclination to accept which is why later on, he invited his nobles to accept but when they did not accept, then he changed his mind as well. So these words, what do they show his extreme humility, it shows the love that he had for the prophets that allowed them even though he hadn't met him. And we see that later on, he sent a gift for the

00:51:04 --> 00:51:30

Prophet sallallahu Sallam as well. Later on, in the prophets life after this event, he sent some gold to the prophets of Allah Center, which he divided amongst his companions. And so anyway, perhaps he did have some inclination, but again, inclination alone is not enough. intention alone is not enough. It has to be followed by action. And why does he say this? That if I could reach him, I would wash his feet. Why?

00:51:31 --> 00:52:14

Okay, he's expressing extreme humidity as we know that at this time, his notables were there. His dignitaries were there, the ascetics were there, the priests were there. So he's showing his humanity before all of them. Yes. But why would he say this in particular, that I would wash his feet? Yes, that exactly, that when you wash someone's feet, you are their servant, you understand you are under them, they are above you, you acknowledge you accept their supremacy above you that their status is higher than yours. So in a way, your knuckle is hinting that. But what happened, what happened later, he changed his mind that we see that at this time, it's as though he almost had

00:52:14 --> 00:52:53

faith, which is why he's expressing such humility at his tongue. But later on, when dounia came before him, changed his mind. I will tell him also, he would say that I know that the best religion is the religion of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, you would say words in praise of the religion of Islam, but he never accepted. Once you have the intention of doing something, and you're also inclined internally to do it, do it right away, don't delay. Because if you delay, you might change your mind. You know, like, for example, you see an opportunity to help someone, and you think in your mind, yes, I can help them in this way, I can help them in that way. Go do it right away.

00:52:54 --> 00:53:32

Because if you sleep on it, then what's going to happen the next day, like, you know, it's okay, I helped that person before. And I don't think I can help everybody and you know, I'm too busy, one excuse or the other will come or you will forget, or that same level of Eman won't be there. That's a enthusiasts and won't be there. Because you see, we are human beings, and we have emotions. And the high that we feel at one point is due to certain circumstances that have come together. Like for example, you're sitting in class, you're listening to the if you're studying the if you yourself are going through something similar. You know, you have that situation in your life. And when you hear

00:53:32 --> 00:54:08

those add the way they affect you at that time, you can't have the same effect when you are perhaps memorizing those ayat, isn't it? So like, as you were having your hips test, many of you were revising and I was listening. And I was amazed at how some people were reciting the Quran. They were I asked about hellfire. And they were, you know, as if in a competition and laughing at a certain point, I was listening. And I was like, how can you laugh at the same time when you're reciting this? But because we're human beings, we don't feel? I mean, I'm not saying it's okay to laugh? Not at all. Not at all. And there's something that I would like to remind all of you that as you're

00:54:08 --> 00:54:46

memorizing. Remember the purpose behind it. Don't forget that why are you memorizing? Why are you memorizing just so that you have 30 days memorized? Is that the goal? The goal is to recite it in Salah when you recite it in Salah? Do you just want to lead other people in summary, recite yourself and follow so that you can have assure and you can cry before Allah? If that's the golden as you're memorizing as well. Don't forget that goal. And don't forget the meaning of the ad as you're reciting them. So anyway, the point over here is that the state of our heart, you know, it depends on many, many situations that have come together many circumstances that have come together. So if

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

you have the inclination to do something at a point and do it, don't delay, because if you delay and if you think about it, and if you say I'm going to research more about it, I'm going to investigate more about it, then what's going to happen. You can

00:55:00 --> 00:55:44

Forget, isn't it'll, you'll forget, it won't be as important to you anymore. So anyway, Heracles had these words which show his humidity which will, the admiration that he had for the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and then some other Rb kitabi Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam Allah de Bertha V, they're here to elect a universal law. Then he asked for the letter sent by the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam which was delivered by the here to who, to the governor of Basra. And for the pharaoh who illa hirakata. And he, meaning the governor of Basra, he forwarded that letter to who hirako for Cora, who then he read it for either fee than it was the letter. But before we read the

00:55:44 --> 00:56:32

letter, just one thing that the prophets are notice that I'm sent there, here are the lower on who with the letter to hirako. And when was this at the end of the sixth year after he and he reached in the month of Muharram, in the beginning of seventh year after he left, where did you reach Muslim, and when he got to Basra, he delivered the letter to to the governor of Basra. And his name was inherit even shimmer Allah Sani. And he's also known as the King of his son. He's also known as the King of Assam, but he was also the governor of Basra. And then this man that had it had been shimoda. Hasani, he forwarded the letter to how did you forward the letter, it's not as clear as to

00:56:32 --> 00:56:48

how he forwarded it. Some say that he sent a person and we don't know who exactly he sent, whoever he sent, Allahu Allah, one of his own men. Someone said that he sent the Sahabi they're here little data on who, along with, it even helped him

00:56:49 --> 00:57:39

or even had him was a Christian at that time. Later on, he embraced Islam. And some say that I'd even had him alone was sent. So who did he send to hirako? Did he send the * they learn who? Or are they even had them? Or someone we don't know? Or was the both of them a low earner. But anyway, he forwarded the letter to him. The question is, why didn't the hail Delano go directly to Heroku? Why do you think so? Who was the king of the Roman Empire? It's not easy. It's not easy. And the thing is that if you want, like, for example, if you want to send a message, you want to send a letter to, let's say, the principal of a school? What is that you send it on an email that you find

00:57:39 --> 00:58:02

on the website, you don't know whether they received it, you don't know whether they forwarded it, but you don't know how else to contact them. The other is that you know, somebody who works at the school, so that you can give it to them, and they can pass it on. So when they pass it on, aren't there higher chances of your letter getting to the principal? Yes, I'm getting a response as well.

00:58:03 --> 00:58:40

And more attention as well. Very true. Because if you send it directly, the principal might say, I don't know who this is who this random person is, you're sending this email, forget about it, ignore it, they've, you know, they put it in there in some folder, and they forget about it. But if you send it through a teacher, through a person, a person brings it in, there's more people involved, more attention is given. So the Herald Leader knew he delivered the lecture to the king of a lower number. It's quite possible he was prevented from going himself alone and we don't know. So anyway, for Cora hufa he so he read the letter and in the letter was Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Now this is

00:58:40 --> 00:59:25

the letter of the Prophet sallallahu, Salah, okay. This is the letter of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, Mohammed bin Abdullah, he was sued he from Muhammad, the servant of Allah and His messenger. Look at how the Prophet sallallahu Sallam mentioned himself, Mohammed who is the servant of Allah, there's no shame in being the servant of Allah and the Messenger of Allah. Allah hiragana alima. room to hirako. Who is that our lien the king of Rome, of the Romans, he doesn't say, mean Mohammed or Lima. Out of No, he doesn't say that. He says from Mohammed, the servant of Allah and His messenger to hit a call, or leave the room. And notice how the Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:59:25 --> 00:59:59

acknowledges the worldly position of miracle. Unfortunately, we think that when we become more religious than we are supposed to disrespect other people, we are supposed to not acknowledge the level the status of other people. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam is acknowledging the fact that he was the king of our room, and he mentions that there is no harm in doing so. He says Salam on Allah, Manitoba. alhuda Peace be on him who follows guidance. Why does he say salam ala Manitoba? What is the center

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

doing over here. What's the purpose of mentioning the sentence? Basically as greeting when you write to someone, it's only moral. It's only proper that you greet them, isn't it? So, but Hera who was not a Muslim, the prophets are allowed to sit abroad Salam ala Manitoba, alhuda. He did not write s&m or illegal. Many people, it happens to them that when they come across a non Muslim, they say, hi. And then they say, Islam where they come in and they don't know how to greet them. They don't know how to respond to their greeting. there is confusion, generally amongst people, isn't it? So? Can you say Salaam to them? Can you respond to the greeting or not? There's a difference of opinion

01:00:41 --> 01:01:25

amongst the scholars with regards to this. But if you see over here, the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is that he said Sarah, Manitoba, and Allah subhanaw taala taught the same etiquette. Do his two messengers Musashi Salman heroine or listener, when he sent both of them to fit around into the pie 47 we learned from Dr. Who for color in our Sula, Arabic for our Submariner Bunny is la isla de boom. NACA Be it not Bic, wa salam, O Allah, Manitoba. So some scholars say that look, Allah subhanaw taala told his messengers to say what said Mr. Lamb and Buddha, the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is a Salaam wa diminutive alhuda. So when you greet a non Muslim, yes,

01:01:25 --> 01:02:03

you can say Hello, Hi, good morning, good evening, whatever you say to them, but when it comes to the Islamic greeting, then you use this one, which one As salam o Allah, Manitoba, and just by coincidence, I was listening to a lecture by Yasser Ali, and he was addressing a non Muslim audience. And as he came to the microphone, he said, I said, I'm worried I'm going to devalue that. And he started his speech. So I got a verification for that as well. So anyway, this is one way that we can greet non Muslims, some scholars that disagree with regards to this and they say that no, you can say a Salam or Aleikum to non Muslims as well there is no harm in that as long as you know that,

01:02:03 --> 01:02:39

you know, they are not hostile towards Muslims. in Medina, when the Jews when they would come to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to the Muslims, what would they say Assam or Alico. Right? Why because they were enemies to Muslims. So in that case, you don't initiate the greeting to them. And when they do greet you, what do you say why they come? And that was a response to the profit sort of Alison game isn't. So other scholars say that, when you know that someone is not an enemy to you, they are in good terms with you. They could be your family members, they could be your co workers, you know, they respect you as a Muslim. And because they respect you as a Muslim, whenever they see

01:02:39 --> 01:03:14

you, whenever they greet you, instead of saying hello, hi to you, they say Assalamu alaikum, then there is no harm in saying worldly consider. So they say it's permissible with a condition. And we see that once Sophia Anna Marina, he was asked whether a Muslim can salute a non Muslim would Salam and he replied that yes. And he quoted the saying of a line sort of Medina a number eight that lay and how come along or any Latina gnomeo party to come in, when you're free to come in dare come into the room, where tuxedo lay him in Allahu hebben oxyclean so Allah does not forbid you from being good to these people, those who do not fight you those who do not oppose you who have not expelled

01:03:14 --> 01:03:52

you. So now Muslims who are in good terms with you, there's no harm in being good with them and part of being good to someone is greeting them. You understand? Now other scholars who say that no, no, you can say Salaam to non Muslims whether they are hostile or they're not hostile there's no harm. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala says And so at the zoo clarify at nine first for Han, whom were called Salam for sofa, yellow moon, similar insert costs I 55. We don't want it SME or level of Arnold or ein who will call you Lana. Are Madonna Welcome armonico Sara Mona Aleikum, Lana, we're talking to him and there are so many I even know him or they send me centers Roger center. So many

01:03:52 --> 01:04:07

evidence we find from the plant in which a believer was an enemy to an unbeliever meaning there was some enmity between them yet the believer says what? Salaam Alaikum. But what do you know about that Salaam that's an Amazon, Metallica or

01:04:08 --> 01:04:54

Metallica. Metallica? What does that mean? From thought of leaving a farewell that You mind your own business? I mind my own business you are at peace with me. See you and the center of the hangar is that when you meet someone you greet them with a solemn warning. If you look at all of these contexts, in which these is revealed all of them. What do they show conflict? For us for one home local salon for so far alone, isn't it Oh, well, it has some your lower or labuan who will call you Lana Armando, welcome. Welcome Sarah Malika Lana without injury. So all of these contexts, they are off conflict. So this cinemas of Metallica and not the here. Now, what should you do? I presented

01:04:54 --> 01:04:55

you both sides.

01:04:56 --> 01:05:00

What should you do? First of all, personally alternate

01:05:00 --> 01:05:33

What I do, if I meet a non Muslim I generally say hello or hi to them whether in writing or in person. That's what I do because that's what they're more familiar with as well. Perhaps they will feel more comfortable that way as well. If they say Salaam to you, then there is no harm in saying radicals. If you don't want to say why they come, salam wa Alaykum because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did that. mm azari. He said, If you say Salaam to the non Muslims, then surely some pious people did the same. And if you don't, indeed some pious people did the same. But just make up your mind as to what you're going to do. Don't look confused over there. The other person is standing

01:05:33 --> 01:06:08

there waiting for you to say something like Salaam Alaikum. no make up your mind. And make that your habit as well. Because living in this country when obviously you come across so many people can also use English translation when they're more curious. You can say that to them. Because they say that you're not supposed to initiate greeting the non Muslims. This is what they say that you don't even say hi or hello to them. Don't be the first one to say that because they say that you're not supposed to initiate greeting the non Muslims. However, this opinion is based on the Hadith in which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told the companions when they were going to the loo Kitab in Medina,

01:06:08 --> 01:06:52

the hood in Medina, and they were basically going for conflict. Now when you go for a conflict, you don't say hi, hello. Okay. So some generalized that incident and others say that no, it's only specific to that context. Anyway, there is a very good paper on this issue on sohaib web.com. I want all of you to read it. Honestly, it will really open up your mind on whether or not we're allowed to greet the non Muslims. If you just do a Google search. Perhaps it will be the first result that you see. Okay, on sohaib web.com su h AIB web.com. So anyway, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam What did he say to hirako salam O Allah manita Barracuda. Because anyway, he's also inviting him. Maybe he's be

01:06:52 --> 01:07:36

on the one who follows guidance. And he says, I'm about to do as for after that many times when you hear the hotel, the hotel says, What does it mean? Um, As for barbu, after meaning after this hope, but now, like we say anyway, for any other ruka BDR ITIL Islam, I invite you with the invitation to Islam, meaning I invite you to accept Islam to the call of Islam and what is that? What is the call of Islam, the call which identifies with Islam, which is bearing witness that there is no data but Allah and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is the Messenger of Allah so the Shahada thing that slim does Islam submit, a new shall be safe. Now what does it mean by this a slim the slim submit, and you

01:07:36 --> 01:07:47

shall be safe, meaning your life will be spared. Not necessarily, or not only that meaning what it means by a slim Islam is that submit, and you shall be saved in this dunya and in the

01:07:49 --> 01:08:27

boat, you shall be saved in this dunya and in the FL esteem Tesla. And you see when you say a Salam or Aleikum, what does it mean? Me The Salam be upon you a Peace be upon you. But that is only for who are the one who accepts Islam, right? I slimmed Islam, not let the slim and the slim no Muslim and Islam when a person submits then he saved in this dunya. And after when we say Assalamu alaykum. Do you see what I mean? So this is why some scholars say it's not appropriate to say Salaam to the non Muslims, but other scholars say that there's no harm. Another very interesting incident once that happened was that somebody said Assalamualaikum warahmatullah to a non Muslim, and somebody was

01:08:27 --> 01:08:42

there and they said, what happened to law? You said that to them? How could you say that? I mean, okay said I'm already understanding the why or what the law? He said, Isn't he already in the mercy of Allah? Allah subhanaw taala is a rare man. And he's merciful to even those who don't believe.

01:08:43 --> 01:09:24

So anyway, as slim teslim you take a look at your account, Latina Allah will give you your reward twice, Allah will give you double reward. Double reward for what? Two reasons. First of all, he's a Christian. When a person from a who keytab embraces Islam, he gets double reward. Why double reward one reward for believing in their messenger like for example, and the second reward for believing in the prophets of Allah is that and secondly, why in the case of hirako, rewarded twice because, first of all for his own acceptance and secondly, that when he would become Muslim, his people would follow him. So he would also get their reward for becoming Muslim. For interview later, this is

01:09:24 --> 01:09:59

exactly what the prophet sallallahu Sallam says, but in our later for Interlaken is already seen. And if you reject this invitation to Islam, then you will also carry the sin of misguiding your subjects your presence, you will have the sin of leading them astray. Because people follow the religion of who are the leaders. So he was a leader, whatever you would do, people would follow them. So anyway, the prophet sort of autism also warned him and then we are at El kitabi. Toronto in Kalimantan Sawa in vain in Albania calm, Atlanta, Buda Ilaha, will initially kamisha whether you're talking about Luna bourbon or bourbon,

01:10:00 --> 01:10:38

Do nilla for interval low for kulu shadow we anomalously moon, that ally said in the Quran that oh People of the Scripture come to a word that is equitable between us and you that we will not worship except Allah and not associate anything with him and not take one another as Lords instead of Allah. But if the turn away then say bear witness that we are Muslims submitting to him to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam mentioned this as well. When was this I revealed? You remember, we studied this incident earlier and Ron were many is with regards to especially the Christians are mentioned who came the delegation from the Christians of Nigeria, and in what year was the year of delegations

01:10:38 --> 01:10:54

ninth year after he was when the delegation from New Zealand came. And that was when this I was revealed, what years this seventh year after digital, and when the prophet SAW the loss and wrote the letter, it was sixth year after he left. So how come this is mentioned over there?

01:10:56 --> 01:11:38

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam wrote this. And then later on Allah soprano data revealed the ayah in affirmation to exactly what he said, were my young people. However, the prophets are the lawyers and would not speak out of his own whim, and of his own desire. At this point is I had not been revealed. But whatever the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Whatever he wrote, a loss of panel data revealed it later, because it was actually part of the Quran. So what does it show that even in the statements of the Prophet sallallahu, even in his words, in the letters that he wrote, he did not speak out of his own desire. He spoke whatever Allah taught him, whatever Allah inspired to him,

01:11:38 --> 01:12:03

whether it was where he mutlu at that point, or later mutlu. At this point, we can understand this as read Mattoon, but later on it was not true. So anyway, this was a letter of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what lessons do we learn from this letter? inshallah we will discuss in our next class. subhanak Allahumma vmdk Chateau La Ilaha. illa Anta Mr. Haruka wanna do with a Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
