you know, when somebody accepts Islam, it wipes out all their previous deeds erases all their previous sins, they start over with a clean slate. And that's fairly intuitive. But one of the interesting things that I reflect upon is that it also wipes that person's slate clean with everybody else that they've wronged in an interesting way, or at least it should. Or it can, if you take the example of I'm gonna cut Bob, right? I mean, he's oppressed Muslims, okay, and he's leaving his house to try to kill the Prophet Mohammed sights on him. And then once he embraces a slum, all of that is erased. Nobody looks at him in a funny way, or with suspicion or anything like that after
even though, just a day ago, he wanted to do harm to the Muslims and do harm to the Prophet sighs. And then even with washi, right, last year was the slave of Abu Sufian at hand and was commissioned to assassinate the prophets, Uncle auntie, so that's right. And he exactly eventually accepted Islam. And there's a narration that at one point, you know, where she comes and he is he talks to the prophesy Saddam about this particular issue and the prophesy, Saddam obviously accepts him with open arms of the Muslim and even though in the narration, it says that the prophesy sort of had a difficult time looking at washi because of the pain of what happened before, which tells you
something else about the sincerity of the prophesy son, um, because he's more afflicted by the violence done to his uncle than he is about attempts on his own life, which is amazing, but also it shows that the prophesy son, um, you know, he advocated or at least he recognized that you can have feelings and those feelings, nobody can take away the hurt, nobody can erase. Even if somebody you know, they kill your parents, or they kill your uncle, or they do something horrible to you or your family, okay, you still got hurt, right? And that hurt is real. And the hurt might not be able to be washed away by somebody is coming to guidance and coming to the truth. But if they do come to the
truth, and they become a Muslim, that that does erase any sort of sort of sin from them. And so now they're your brother. Now they are somebody who you have a relationship. So you kind of have to balance between the two things, even though you might have this hurt and you have to deal with that in your own sort of way you realize that you can't hold a grudge against this person. This is something that they did when they were transgressing against the law, so of course they're going to transgress against you right but now that they've gotten right and they've seen the right path, and they've repented that they're an entirely different person, they're literally not the same person
who did that thing back then. And so they need to they need to be treated a little bit differently.
