Washington locker that's a melissani of okoli so the Hannukah la Mulana Illa ma lantana in Naga Antara Lima Hakeem. So it seems the following questions been coming up
a lot since yesterday, which is, how did you learn your English?
So if you keep telling me how did you learn your English being an Egyptian living in Hong Kong?
before I moved to Hong Kong, when I got married, my wife has a Filipino. As I said, yesterday, I didn't really speak English. In fact, I stayed with my wife one year, practicing sign language.
And my wife was so patient, you know, explaining
the things that I don't understand, I will be sitting with her and her friends or in a company. Well, everybody is speaking and looking at me. And I'll be like that.
And I have no idea what they were saying.
So the people are asking, how do you improve your English? Well, I was so it should have been a little while ago. And he said, When you love something, when you have passion for something you will execute. So that that's how I improved my English. Still, I'm working on it to improve it even further. hamdulillah Let me tell you a story. Before I moved to Hong Kong, I was talking to my wife on the internet. And my wife was coming up to Egypt to to get madej so she asked me Okay, I'm going to get you some snacks from Hong Kong. I said no.
Don't ever bring snacks to Egypt. She said why these are something wonderful seminar in Egypt. It's hard on me and we don't we don't eat snacks. My wife is a businesswoman. So she immediately said Oh, if the people in Egypt don't eat snacks, then it's good time for me to introduce snacks for Egyptians.
I said no, no, no, no. And then she brought some kind of a pack package of snacks showing me on the webcam said this is the thing that even kids love. I said no. We do not eat snacks. Please respect our culture. So she's, you know, she was looking in the camera like why in the world these people don't eat snacks. everybody enjoys snacks. And I thought that I was so stupid that there's something wrong so I went to this Nokia phone remember this old Nokia phone? Roza game there and that game was called what? snakes?
I thought my wife was going to get me snakes from Hong Kong.
So this how bad my English was in those days in LA Stop laughing
Yeah, you get it finally. Mashallah.
Yeah, that was me.
Don't tell this to anyone.
All right. So today inshallah, we're going to talk about four, four manners.
You know, when they define the word change, they say to replace something was something else was something different.
And that's what we wanted to bring in Charlotte to our community, as an individual, as a community and as a as an oma as a whole as a whole things that have been forgotten a little bit or taking a lot lightly.
I want to ask you a question to begin the topic. inshallah, if you were told today, that in 20 years from now, you will remain just as you are today, the same no change whatsoever? Would you like to hear that?
You want it to change you want it to, to insert in your life some positive changes so that you can meet Allah subhanaw taala with pure heart in sha Allah
so everyone wanted to
Come up with positive change in the life so what are these things that we need to replace with something positive? So I want you to know down in sha Allah The first thing on the list that we wanted to insert in our lives if your sisters I'm very happy to see your notes are you are you making notes any sisters making notes?
Any sisters making notes?
Okay, any brothers memorizing what I'm saying?
All right, it's important to make notes otherwise you know the teachers who taught us you know what we are trying to convey today they told us the importance of using the pen
of making notes that's how we learn because things will be forgotten right away after you leave this home. So make notes go back to them try to implement as much as you can inshallah.
So, the oma In my opinion, they need to replace lying with truthfulness.
Lying with truthfulness.
Many people in our community Unfortunately,
the lie the author lies, misinformation.
Even sometimes on the MTR on in the metro, you see some someone talking on the phone and telling his friend, five minutes I'm gonna come to you in five minutes, or he's too far away from the destination. Sometimes you are at home and somebody is calling you. Where are you? I've been waiting for you for 30 minutes. You think it's to traffic your traffic's too bad, but I'm coming Don't worry. Yeah, we lie constantly. Listen to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and what he said, The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is commending the oma
by saying Allah can be sued
for in a pseudo DLL bearer, or internal build raw DLL, john amasa Roger Lewis Dooku Why
have you double in the lives of the beautiful narration? The professor said, I'm saying what I command you to be truthful. It's a commandment my brother and sister is not something optional. You are commanded by Lost Planet Allah and the Prophet Muhammad SAW Selim to be truthful to author that which is true.
So the prophet SAW said, I command you to be truthful. Why? Because truthfulness leads to righteousness. And righteousness leads to gentleman who doesn't want to go to journalism, your hand doesn't
cut guys every time they fall for it every time. Everybody wants to go to gender here is one of the keys towards the two gentlemen that will take you two gentlemen, is being truthful. jaffery avatar liberati Aloha. norba
when he was addressing Anna joshy, the king
and Majesty the King asked him what did your prophet you know teach you? He said he told us to worship God and to speak the truth.
The second on the list of Jaffa diabetology rhodiola. Anwar da was to speak that which is true.
So the prophet SAW Selim said the more you keep on telling the truth, and strive to say the truth, you will be written with a loss of Hannah hautala as truthful as Sudhakar Who knows? The law Norma Abubakar Soviet
anyone knows him and I don't see hands, Paula. Okay, okay.
The alojado are the best friend of the Prophet Muhammad SAW sell them in fact, the best human being ever after the prophets, a book recently called the Allah Hanwha. He was titled as the dean because he used to believe in whatever the prophet SAW Selim used to say and he used to always say the truth. Do you want to be with him in general? Do you want to be with Abu Bakr insha Allah and Jana, if you want my brothers and sisters if you want to be with Abu Bakr, Silvia, Allah Han or BA in Jana, be like him Indonesia. That's a criteria.
And one of these criterias that will take us inshallah, to agenda is to alter that which which is right, which is true.
And the opposite and there's something amazing about the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam
the prophet SAW, Selim used to command us to do something good and always warned us from its opposite.
So he will say in that narration, for example, he would tell us
you must be truthful. In the second part of the narration, he say what what Komal Kathy, and I warn you
because lying leads to wickedness and wickedness leads to hellfire.
And a man or a woman, keep on telling lies and strive to tell lies until she or he is written with a lot as liar. Would you want to meet Allah subhanaw taala with that label liar Aleta Bella
so strive today is the day like the brother earlier was saying today is the day
For making changes, and this is one of the things that we wanted to change.
We wanted to change that habit of lying.
And our scholars would say that we may lie in only three cases, only three cases, right? In case of, you know, being in danger, somebody threatened you leave Islam now with a blow of your head, you say, Okay, okay, I'm not, I'm not a Muslim.
And it happens, it happens during the time of the prophet SAW Selim, a companion was tortured,
until he altered some word of Khufu some words of this belief, and he went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam, and he told him what happened and the prophet SAW Selim told him if they did the same, if they come back and did the same, you say the same thing. So, in case of being under threat, you may auto words off the Kufa or you may you know lie.
And the second case if you are trying to reconcile between two brothers or two sisters who are not in good terms, so you will go to that sister until you know sister Eliza stuff Altima, you know, Sister, I love you so much, maybe society, she hates sister for them.
But you're trying to create love between them. So your other few words here and there to reconcile between two brothers or two sisters who are not or who are quarreling. And the third case is my favorite. And that is to lie to your spouse.
Don't get me wrong, to lie to your spouse is not to cheat on your wife and come and lie tarantella was working No. But to exchange these sweet words sweet words that will never ever harm you to save them just to please your wife or your husband.
You know, like in the in the case of two people who are engaged for example, and we know that engagement period is so sweet, so nice. So the husband or the fiance who go and visit, he's in Lowe's. And of course before going the brother will wear the best clothes, he will shower himself with perfume. Right? Because he wanted to appeal in the best shape in front of his fiance. And of course the sister back home, she woke up before fudger she didn't know she stayed.
She stayed all day all day, all day just in front of the mirror. You know, fixing her face putting a lot of makeup, a lot of mascara and Rosa Zoo and all that stuff. Do you guys use Why? Because you want it to appear in front of your fiance in the best condition. And then we got married.
Now first night, the first night.
You know in the morning after we sleep then we got him in the morning. This is the first time you're seeing your wife in that condition. The hair gun everywhere on the bed.
Sometimes goes inside your nose.
And then of course the mascara and all stuff it bleeds on your face so the brother wakes up and look and say oh Bella, you know.
And of course the brother is snoring all night. One one leg on in the eastern leg on the west. These are surprises that you never seen before in your because marriage is one package you cannot just pick and choose. And the mugs are going to change anyway she's gonna get pregnant, she's gonna get a little bit fat, you're going to gain weight because she cooks a lot of beautiful food. We have to accept each other and our foods. Now in the middle of all these crisis, you look at your wife in the morning and you tell her you are the most beautiful woman. You are lying.
You are lying.
But that's about Don't exaggerate. Otherwise, she will tell you you're a big liar.
Don't exaggerate, just try to exchange these sweet words.
That keeps the marriage going in
truthfulness, these are the only three cases aside from that there is no pink lie there is no white lie in Islam. Lies I've got no colors just lies are lies,
truthfulness, my brother and sisters always associated with the manners of the prophets of Allah, the chosen ones. Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, with guru Phil kita ba ba Hema in NA who can also be
mentioned in the book in the Quran, the story of the Prophet Ibrahim alayhi salam, what are the qualities that Allah subhanaw taala wanted to teach us about Ibrahim indeed he was truthful, and a messenger and the same verses repeated. When the Prophet when Allah subhanaw taala talks about Idris Allah is Allah was guru Phil kitabi. There is none who can also be Punjabi. I mentioned in the book The story of Idris for Indeed, he was a truthful and a prophet, and then Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the story of a smile who is a smile alehissalaam the son of
Ibrahim alayhis salam,
what goodfield kitabi smila Aina who can also the la de Vaca Nora sulan nebia mentioned in the book The story of Ismail alehissalaam, for sure for indeed he was truthful to his promise. And he was a, a messenger and a prophet. These are the qualities associated with the prophets of Allah and the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he was hated by his enemies as what a saw that I mean, the truthful, the honest. We wanted to bring these qualities to our communities.
You see Allah subhanaw taala is telling us that Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was truthful and his son his line
was, was was truthful as well.
Parents in the audience don't ever lie. To your children don't ever lie. Whether in front of them or behind the backs. Sometimes what happens in our homes, the phone rings, and the dad is telling his son, Don't lie. If you lie, you will go to hell.
But the phone rings and he tells his son if uncle Omar tell him I'm not here.
How many times these situations occur? You are teaching your son to lie and when he lied to you, you blame him.
Be truthful, Allah Subhana Allah will make your offspring truthful as well. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam as we said earlier, he teaches one manner and he warned us against its opposite. He also warned us that if you keep on lying you may fall under the category of hypocrites when
I tell monastics Allah the prophet SAW said and said the sign of hypocrites are three things if you want to identify a hypocrite look for three qualities
or three l manners. The first on the list either hot data Kevin when he speaks he otter a lie.
We I'm afraid that the oma or some some some people among the Muslim woman I'm afraid that they will fall in that category of being hypocrites. Well as we lead in the dark you
said that when a 13 hypocrites will be in the lowest part of Hellfire I'm afraid that lying may lead us to this while I am in law because that's the definition of hypocrisy is to pretend
something that you're not
so be careful my brothers and sisters now how can we develop truthfulness? How can we go practical inshallah The first thing associate yourself with those people are truthful always be with those who are truthful. A las panatela says in the Quran. Yeah. Are you Latina man otaku law how Akuma saw this at all you who believe? Who are the believers here? Raise your hand.
See Allah Subhana Allah when he said yeah, you're Latina man. Oh, every Muslim should pay attention. I call these verses that tension versus allies calling you all you who believe Yes, your law this should be our attitude. Yes, Allah we are ready to listen to the command. Because every time I was found out I would say yeah, you're Latina man. Oh, you who believe what comes next is a command for you to follow.
So Allah subhanaw taala Say what? Yeah, yo holla Dena Amano Taka la be conscious of Allah subhanaw taala Be aware that allies overwatching you takoma, that's the meaning of taqwa.
To be always conscious of the Presence of Allah subhanaw taala whether you are alone or in public, it talks a lot. And then what, what kulu masala tea and always be with those who are truthful. Yesterday we said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam told us that a man will always be inclined to follow the religion of his friend.
So always be with good righteous company. here Allah Subhana Allah is telling us if you want to be truthful, always be with those who are truthful. And the second point, always be motivated with the reward that Allah Subhana Allah is giving you if you became truthful, Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, yeah, yo holla Deena man otaku, la Haku Colin sadita all you who believe fear Allah be conscious of Allah and always say that which is good that which is truthful, then what will happen after that?
If I became truthful and said that which is right, a Lost Planet, Allah giving us the reward in the same way you slay him.
He will fix your affairs for you.
Many people will lie he would contact me with a lot of problems, a lot of issues.
And they will be complaining what is why these things are happening to me. Maybe you are lying, maybe maybe you are all you got used to say? misinformed misinformation.
Lots of Hana data say you be truthful, Allah subhanaw taala will fix your affairs for you, and He will forgive your sins.
These are the words given for those who are truthful. So this is number one, the first element that I wanted to discuss is we want to replace line with truth. We always say the truthful, the second, the second
subject, is humility. We want to replace arrogance with humility is how many times have you heard someone saying, Don't you know who am I?
Have you heard this statement before? You know, who am I? You know, who's my father?
Who are you? Excuse me, you're just a dust you made from this. That's your origin of powder, or humility is part of the teaching that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam brought to us and again, Allah, the prophet Panesar seller,
commanded us to be humble and warned us from being arrogant. You see, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam when he sent two of his companions to call the people of Yemen to Islam. He told him what that's that's how the process lm is teaching us. He told them Yes, sir. I want you to remember if you want to remember anything of this lecture, I want you to remember these six words, the process and say the word yes Sera,
Sera watashi. Wa tuna Farah watertower, wah wah telephone. He said, Yes, sir. He told his companions to go to the people of Yemen and make things easy for them. And then at the same time, he said, but don't make things difficult for them. Naturally, if you told someone make things easy, simultaneously, you're telling him Don't say don't make things difficult. But the Prophet sallahu wa salam is making sure he's leaving no room for confusion. He's telling them the command and he's warning them from its opposite. Yes, Sarah. make things easy on the people.
And don't make things difficult on them. While they're sure and give them good news.
Talk to them about Jenna
before talking them about Hellfire and Haram. Unfortunately in our community, sometimes we have people who hold haram guns in their sights. When we talk to them about something haram
and there are some people who have the automatic haram gun.
make things easy on the people.
You don't even some non Muslims would come and talk to us about Islam and we would be very happy addressing them and and answering their concerns and then all of a sudden, you know, not because of what we do, but Allah subhanaw taala will guide them and they will say okay, I wanted to embrace Islam, I wanted to take Shahada. I wanted to declare that there is no God but Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah and this is the one of the most exciting moment in any Muslims life is to hear someone coming to stem.
And so you start telling the people okay, repeat after me a shadow, a shadow unless you give them the Shahada bit by bit.
But there are other brothers and sisters around observing, waiting. So there is one sister always with always with hijab in her hand,
always with hijab in her hand, waiting
for the sister to complete her Shahada. And as soon as she said, her mother in law, she jumped off and she landed, she lands on her hand with the hijab, the sister who became Muslim, she's not yet ready for hijab, so take it easy.
She only accepted the concept that God is one and Muhammad is the Messenger of God. All right, now you start teaching her, teach her bit by bit, but don't make things difficult on her. She came from a different background, and you start finding people telling, you know, this story, I don't know if I could say it or not. But my brother was embracing Islam.
And after he finished, he was from America. After he finished, a brother came from certain country, and he told him, I want you not to worry
about what the Americans saying. You say, I've got a good doctor. So circumcision will be on me.
So what do I say? Yeah, you have to be circumcised, you are Muslim. Guys, leave him leave him get education on his own until the right time. If you want to go for it. He would do it on his own but don't scare people off. That's the advice of the Prophet Salalah sell them, give them good news. And don't give them you know, the the sad news or the bad news, wah wah and cooperate, cooperate with one another.
While at the telephone do not contradict each other. That is how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling us in that duration he said in aloha Illa Anto Allah Subhana Allah the prophet SAW Selim is saying Allah Subhana Allah has revealed to me that you should be humble. It's a revelation. Again, it's a command.
A comment and its opposite
is something horrible arrogance the prophets Allah La Silla made it very clear that those who have got in their heart and Atom weight of a mustard seed of arrogant they will not enter jinn whether you're Muslim or otherwise very simple, very straightforward layer tool in general the process of said he will not enter gentleman who is that person
a person whose heart have one atom of a mustard seed of arrogance, what are the chances what are the what are the chances that's why we said yesterday in relation to to our parents waffling lahoma Jana has done lemon or Rama Amina Rama you humble yourself lower your wings of humility to your parents.
We talked about humility yesterday a little bit but he the prophet SAW Selim is warning us that you might you know end up in Hellfire while at the villa. What is the definition again? Let us let us go deeper a bit. What is the definition of
of arrogance or of humility? humility is to accept the truth from anyone who conveys it to you.
Anyone who conveys the truth to you you accept you have to accept it and do not ever look down upon others because of the race because of the religion or background Don't ever look down upon people. I want to ask you by show of hands maybe it will work here with the audience anyone? Is there anyone in the audience have got a servant and made in their home?
we are all the servants of Allah right? So there's no shame over that. Okay, so I saw one or two hands
how many of those people who raise their hands invite their mates to eat with them on the same table on the same dining table?
One hand out of two and a half hands
you sometimes I asked this in apparently in Pakistan, they have got a lot of maids in Philippines the same so when I asked this question a lot of hands will be raised when I ask is that anyone have got maids in their home but when I asked do they eat with you in the same dining table, you see scattered hands because we got used to it that maids are lower than us they don't eat with us they don't deserve to eat with us they have to eat in the kitchen. You have to eat the leftover. Why? The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told us about our servants are made those who are in under our authority. He said what he used a beautiful word they are your brothers and sisters.
One Okay, they are your brothers and sisters, feed them from what you eat, dress them, give them clothes from what you wear. And if you give them any work beyond their capacity beyond their ability, then help them
so if you wanted to practice humbleness today, go and sit with those who are less fortunate than you sit with them, have a nice meal with them, buy them a gift, that will teach you inshallah to break the ego in in your heart. So the definition is to accept the truth from anyone who conveys it and to never look down upon
those who are lower than you. Now the third quality so he talked first about truthfulness, we need to insert that in our daily habits and humility. The third one is we need to replace hatred with love. We need to replace hating one another with loving one another for dogs for Allah sake for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and I want to start with this beautiful you know in this segment, the beautiful hadith of Abu hurayrah de la hora de he said that the Messenger of Allah said the akula hodza jelly Oman crema al Maha buena Magellan, Allah subhanaw taala on the Day of Judgment, he will shout he will, he will call by saying where are those who love each other for my glory? Where are
they? Allah subhanaw taala will be looking for people who genuinely loved one another for the sake of Allah during the lifetime. And then he will say what Allium this day the most difficult day, the day of judgment, where the sun would be coming closer to our head by one mile.
That is the day we will be running to the prophets asking for their help. In the most difficult day, a Lost Planet Allah will say what Where are those who love each other for my glory, this day I shall sheltered them I shall shade them in my shade where there will be no shade except my shade. That is the word of loving one another for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala
So my brothers and sisters in in one of the very popular generation as well.
As the prophet SAW, Selim gave us the seven quality
These are the seven categories of people who would be shaded under the shade of the last panel tile on the day of judgment or one of these categories are two people who love each other for the sake of Allah the meet upon that and the depart upon that. Would you want to be among them? Would you okay so I want you to stand up let us go practical now stand up.
I'm serious by the way.
The shoe Yanni if you if it is difficult for you to stand up.
I know that we ate a lot of barbecue yesterday, so it's difficult for us to
Okay, I want to stretch a little bit. Yeah, I know. You guys want coffee, coffee?
All right, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, listen to this. He told us to express that love. He taught us how to express loving each other for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Amanda man came to him and he told him I love this man standing over there. The prophets Allah Sallam told him, Have you told him? Did you tell him that you love him? You say no the process and told him what? Go and tell him that? Why are you telling me if I love shaved off his childhood, so much? Will I go to say to shake her head and tell him you know what?
I love you so much. Does that make any sense? No. If I love you, I will go and embrace him. And I will tell him I love you for the sake of Allah, and he should respond to me and he will with respect not should
he should respond to me with the same thing that the professor Selamat told us May the one whom you love me for his sake, love you also want an amazing beautiful manner that has been forgotten. So we wanted to go practical today but it's not for a show. We wanted to practice it now and inshallah regularly whenever you meet your parents, whenever you meet your friends, embrace them and tell them I love you for the sake of Allah. So I want to see now the sisters,
the sisters to embrace one another and do the following. Wait, wait, no colazione Now we wanted to
wait. Listen to the to the instruction. I want you to find the next to you that the person next to you. Hug her and tell her I love you for the sake of Allah. We support Allah. That's why we're not successful.
We do not complete the instructions. Wait, wait, wait, wait.
So I want you to express that love to tell your sister I love you for the sake of Allah and the one who heard that should respond by saying May the one whom you loved me for his sake love you also. I want you to I don't want brothers go to the sisters. I love you sister. Nora Don't act smart.
We do love our sisters for the sake of Allah expressing that make great witness. So we wanted just any brothers two brothers sisters, sisters, right. And the hug starts now Bismillah
enough love enough love sit down?
Close enough love.
masala May Allah subhanaw taala
May Allah subhanaw taala accept from us? May Allah subhanaw taala make that hug and that expression of love for one another? We are last month Allah make it real, genuine sincere. for his sake alone. I mean, say I mean brothers and sisters.
I'm tired guys. You have to help me. Alright, so the fourth and the last quality that I want to talk about. We wanted to replace inconsistency from our lives and replace it with consistency is the karma. steadfastness. A man came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he told him had Disney
be amarin ottosson movie, talk to me of something that I should hold firm on it that I uphold firmly. The prophet SAW said and told him what call or obey Allah film filma stuck him say, allies My lord, this is the Shahada, the declaration that the last pantalla is the king is the creator of everything that exists say that believe in Allah subhanaw taala first, then be upright, then remain firm upon that same.
It's not just about saying La la la la do nothing.
In accordance with that statement.
We have to be consistent after saying La ilaha illAllah after Shahada comes is the karma. You know, the scholars would say what la barra Lisa Beeman, sub sobre la Bruh, demon Sabbath, Allahu Akbar, they would say that Allah subhanaw taala will determine your destiny, whether in sha Allah Jenna or
mellowest pantalla save us from Hellfire, not because you became righteous before others No.
But by the quality of being steadfast steadfastness upon the straight path. That's why every day
every Salah, in our prayer, we say what he did not Surah mustafi Why don't we say that every day? Didn't Allah subhanaw taala guide us already?
Didn't Allah Subhana Allah guide us already by making us Muslims that hamdulillah
and what, what more beautiful blessings than being a Muslim.
But the meaning according to some, you know, interpretation doesn't just mean that guidance, it means Oh Allah, I'm asking you to show me the way to take me there and to keep me firm upon it. So to take me and keep me
to take me there to show me the way and to keep me firm upon that straight.
That's why we keep repeating it. It didn't stop him.
And other scholars would say, Tory law he told me that the journey towards Allah subhanaw taala is long.
But it's not Allah subhanaw taala will not determine your destiny with a genuine or Hellfire by reaching the destination, but rather by dying upon the destination.
While you're on the straight path all the time you passed away. That's it. Allah subhanaw taala will take you two gentlemen, steadfastness. I want to just end up in Sharla by a beautiful story of a companion.
And by the way, even the Prophet sallallahu Sallam imagine this with me. Even the prophet SAW Selim was commanded by Allah to remain steadfast. Allah subhana wa sendo, for emphasis cannot omit remain firm upon the path as you're being commanded. Who is receiving this commandment? The Prophet of Allah the best of all selections, the best of all prophets? How about you and me?
Now, law Savers, mela Savers, my brother and sisters, when this verse was revealed in this chapter was revealed, the process of selling said what she Bethany, who's the chapter of who'd has made my hair go gray,
because of the heaviness of the message, because it's one of the challenging manners that we need to keep one of the most difficult manners is to remain firm, consistent, it's difficult, but it's possible. It's possible to happen. Now one of the stories that we'll end up with in sha Allah is the story of a man by the name of Abdullah Ignacio dafa. a semi what's his name, I want you to memorize that name. Because if I asked you who's the, the, the actor of this movie or the player of this game, we memorize them by heart We know whom they married to where they born, what when they were born, we know everything about them. But when you talk about our heroes, our companions male are
pleased with them and bring them bring us with them in gender. We fail, unfortunately.
So what's the companions name Abdullah Abdullah has ever asked me there is a purpose behind me asking you to memorize that name because there is a homework inshallah for you before I leave Perth, there will be a homework all right up the line Mahadeva. Sammy was one of the companions who fought in a certain battle during the region of Qatar. And he and a large number of the companions were called by a Christian King, and they were jailed. And then they brought up the lion or whatever sent me to the Christians court that the Christian kings court, and he told him embrace Christianity, and I will give you half of my wealth, just embrace Christianity. So Abdullah, look how strong firm and
