00:00:17--> 00:00:22

hamdu lillahi wa kafa was saddam saddam either most of

00:00:23--> 00:00:28

the he was the one man if he had he in a Yeoman rojava

00:00:31--> 00:00:35

My beloved brother and most respected elders, mothers and sisters.

00:00:39--> 00:00:42

In the past, there was a king known as the federal

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

crown.

00:00:47--> 00:00:50

And the crown made a drastic claim he said,

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

I know of Boko molalla

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

I am your Lord Most High.

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

Now as humans, you can anticipate that if another human tells you I am God, you will have questions.

00:01:11--> 00:01:27

You know, cuz you talk like me, you walk like me, you go to the toilet like me, that's not very possible for you to be God. Like the human intellect can kind of cancel that out by itself to say, listen, probably not.

00:01:30--> 00:01:36

So the frown recognize this, that this is gonna be a difficult sale.

00:01:38--> 00:01:45

So what he did, he enlisted the service, or the services of magicians.

00:01:46--> 00:01:54

And the magicians came about, to basically, perception manage

00:01:55--> 00:01:58

to make a human into a god.

00:01:59--> 00:02:12

So they can with their crafts, and the tricks and their magic. And they attribute the greatness to the Pharaoh and the human the toilet going human became God.

00:02:16--> 00:02:23

So historically, eons ago, humankind recognized that perception management is important.

00:02:26--> 00:02:31

Fast forward a fair few centuries into our times.

00:02:32--> 00:02:40

And the magicians in the old capacity have gone they around I mean, they're still black magic and stuff around magic is around.

00:02:41--> 00:02:42

But

00:02:43--> 00:02:49

the perception managers have changed. They have come in the form of screens today.

00:02:51--> 00:03:03

tv and media and internet. And they manage perception so they make ropes look like snakes and snakes look like rose.

00:03:04--> 00:03:05

And

00:03:06--> 00:03:15

until help comes until the truth comes. Because when the truth came in the time of the frown, when Musa alayhis salam can

00:03:16--> 00:03:19

the truth devoured the false hood.

00:03:20--> 00:03:36

And a lot of bullards essays were cool and helpful was about when in Alberta, Canada hookah and say the truth has come in become manifest and false hood has perished. False hood by its nature is perishable.

00:03:39--> 00:03:41

So, in our times,

00:03:42--> 00:03:46

truth is the only thing that will set us free.

00:03:47--> 00:03:55

And as the famous biblical statement, Seek ye the truth, and the truth shall set you free. So we have come here today

00:03:57--> 00:04:03

at a time where really difficult images are being associated with Islam.

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

You know, I was thinking about it. If you get a car a Suzuki you know, and I think Suzuki is a cheap cars and if anyone has a house it's an expensive car. But you know what I mean? Yeah.

00:04:17--> 00:04:27

Suzuki is a relatively cheap brands. And if you take the emblem out, you know that look that in the emblem of Suzuki outten slap on it a Merc one a Mercedes

00:04:28--> 00:04:35

and call it Mercedes. That would be a real injustice to Mercedes cars, that's Suzuki.

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

And the same thing is happening with Islam today. So you get really strange organizations who are as far away from Islamic thought and Islamic ideology in Islamic creed as is the strong the West. A Suzuki is from Mercedes and yet they have labeled it Islam and Islamic State in Islamic government and the

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

Word treats it like that.

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

It's Suzuka, it's not the real one. So what we're doing tonight

00:05:08--> 00:05:11

is to give a glimpse of what

00:05:12--> 00:05:15

an actual Muslim world looked like.

00:05:17--> 00:05:34

So that our young and our old and the Muslim and non Muslim can kind of rest assured. And number one, recognize that we have a long legacy of contribution to the world in its entirety.

00:05:35--> 00:05:51

And that that legacy and that contribution and that notions should not be hijacked by rogue organizations and the wall then the media should not do the injustice of associating the classics with the fake

00:05:53--> 00:05:55

so our story starts

00:05:57--> 00:06:00

in the 1519

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

if you rewind 27 years prior to this date,

00:06:09--> 00:06:11

you will come to 1492

00:06:12--> 00:06:15

anyone know the significance of 1492?

00:06:17--> 00:06:18

Yes,

00:06:24--> 00:06:29

good Masha. Allah, Allah bless Europe. Everyone can I have a big Mashallah for this young man?

00:06:31--> 00:06:35

That was in big, Marcia, a big martial law please.

00:06:40--> 00:06:41

So

00:06:43--> 00:06:44

1492

00:06:45--> 00:06:48

spine fell from Muslim hands.

00:06:50--> 00:06:56

What had happened for years, a Catholic monarchy was growing next to Spain.

00:06:57--> 00:07:04

And it was becoming both stressed and confident, and Muslims were dwindling. Eventually,

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

they took over Spain, which the Muslims had been ruling for almost 800 years.

00:07:13--> 00:08:03

Now, there is a theory in trading, they say success breeds success. Victory breeds victory. And they say train for success. So you set yourself tasks that you can do easily. That makes you feel confident you've got you know, for example, g Lanza here. So we've got imagine a person joins the gym. And then in the gym, they say, I'll come and try and seven days a week. Now, as soon as someone says that he's setting himself up for failure, because he's not training seven days a week, it's difficult to do you need constant motivation and energy and so on. So you know, it's not going to happen. But if he was to say, I'm training twice a week, you know, that's a achievable aim. And if

00:08:03--> 00:08:33

he does it, then he feels nice and confidence, self efficacy, growth, self determination grows, yes, I can grow. So then he can increase it to three days a week. Do you understand me, you train for success. So and success brings success and remember that with your kids don't set them abnormal goals, you know, become a half is by tomorrow, sweetheart, it's not gonna happen. Yeah, set logical goals that they can succeed and then feel confident that they can.

00:08:35--> 00:08:42

So success, their success in Spain made them more confident. And pretty soon

00:08:43--> 00:08:52

This Catholic monarchy grew. And until they came up with the

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

Emperor,

00:08:55--> 00:08:59

and I dubbed him the Holy Roman Emperor.

00:09:01--> 00:09:07

And this happened in 1519, he is child's the fifth.

00:09:09--> 00:09:14

Now remember, Charles hails from a Spanish background. And

00:09:16--> 00:09:17

so if you look at my

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

blurry image, their spine is down here.

00:09:23--> 00:09:35

Italy is there. Both of these are Catholic nations. And, you know, as you go up towards Germany and Belgium, they were Catholics to the only Protestant nation

00:09:36--> 00:09:38

was the French in the middle.

00:09:40--> 00:09:50

So as you can imagine, Catholics and Protestants don't get along too well. So there was a lot of friction there. And they call these the Italian walls.

00:09:51--> 00:10:00

And this lasted a long time. So there was constant fights over bits of Italy, Milan, and so on and so forth. And this last

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

for about six years.

00:10:04--> 00:10:07

So we say war rages in Europe.

00:10:08--> 00:10:14

Very dramatic little titles, you will notice I'm using tonight. So six years later,

00:10:16--> 00:10:21

a decisive battle took place, and France lost

00:10:22--> 00:10:34

and there is losing and there is losing this was a very significant loss. The King got caught and was made captive. This is the king Francis the first.

00:10:36--> 00:10:39

So Francis, the first, the Protestant King

00:10:41--> 00:10:43

was caught on battle.

00:10:44--> 00:10:44

And

00:10:45--> 00:10:48

he was imprisoned by the Spaniards.

00:10:50--> 00:10:56

And one of the nicknames of Francis was the owner of the great knows

00:10:59--> 00:11:02

I think it's self evident from there, why

00:11:04--> 00:11:08

not it's it's a real title. I'm not making this up. This is it's true.

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

So, Francis is in prison.

00:11:14--> 00:11:25

And I'm anticipating the prison of Kings is different from the ordinary man. So he might have been put on a you know, house arrest or palace arrest or something like that, but he was in prison.

00:11:27--> 00:11:33

So Francis thought what to do, you know, how do I get myself out of this mess?

00:11:35--> 00:11:42

and looking around you saw from the previous map, he's he's pretty much surrounded by a faith that will not support him.

00:11:44--> 00:11:47

So he reached out to this man.

00:11:49--> 00:11:51

loveless, this man say I mean,

00:11:52--> 00:11:55

this the Suleiman the Magnificent.

00:11:56--> 00:11:59

The Arabs call him Suleiman al cannone.

00:12:01--> 00:12:21

So, a special envoy, a confidante of Francis traveled and cam to Suleiman al cannone. to the court to the assembly of Solomon. And the court of Suleiman was at Special Court.

00:12:22--> 00:12:24

You couldn't hear a sound.

00:12:26--> 00:12:34

And he used to give instructions by motion of his hands like go but there wasn't any talk in his code. He didn't like noise.

00:12:35--> 00:12:42

Very contemplative man, very learned man, you know, Mujahed, leader, but very somber.

00:12:45--> 00:12:51

So the envoi came to him and told him that France is the first has lost to Spain.

00:12:53--> 00:13:08

And His Majesty the King of France, Francis has sent to your court asking for help to release him from the bondage of the Spaniards, and at the same time, re gain his throne.

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

So Suleiman the Magnificent listened.

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

And then

00:13:17--> 00:13:28

he ordered for a letter to be written. And the letter was written. And this is the letter in the archives of the Ottomans.

00:13:29--> 00:13:34

And it was sent with this envoy back to Francis.

00:13:35--> 00:13:40

And when you read this letter, you get a glimpse of what

00:13:41--> 00:13:43

the Islamic world was like.

00:13:44--> 00:13:50

I will share little bits and pieces of it with you in Arabic and a fuller version in English.

00:13:51--> 00:14:04

So he starts by glorifying a lot of Buddhism and sending salutations on the Prophet. And then he says, this is just the section of it.

00:14:09--> 00:14:41

And soltanto Salatin was born bow handle how our team I am the Sovereign of sovereigns and the throne holder of the Ottomans. And also tonle Buhari Abele. I am the Sovereign of the Mediterranean. What is the S word and of the Black Sea? What is beheren model and of the Red Sea? What

00:14:43--> 00:14:48

what Rumi Li waka Romano room Well, we'll get to

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

what they are robot co worker the Stan was Azerbaijan while I was Sham one muscle one Mecca one Medina

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

One could watch me or the Arab world. What do Majora What are you sir? JOHN O'Hara Kathy euro, if you do jannetty visa, you feel? Well Illa Hill hamdu Allahu Akbar.

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

When I read it, I cried.

00:15:24--> 00:15:24

He says,

00:15:29--> 00:15:31

I'll just put a bit of it happening.

00:15:34--> 00:15:56

I am the Sultan of Sultans, the Sovereign of sovereigns, the dispenser of crowns to monarchs, the vice chairman of Allah on earth. I am the Sovereign of the Mediterranean Sea, and the Black Sea, and the Red Sea, and Roman law, and Antonio, and

00:15:57--> 00:16:30

Carmen Nia and the land of room in Zulu, podria, MDR obaku, and of Kurdistan and Azerbaijan, and Persia and Damascus, and Aleppo and Cairo, and of Makkah, and Medina in Jerusalem, and all of the lands of the Arabs and the Yemen, and of many other lands, which has been conquered by my glorious hand and victorious blade, and yet All praise belongs to Allah and he indeed is the greatest.

00:16:31--> 00:16:33

And then he tells this man,

00:16:34--> 00:16:41

your news has been conveyed to me. And I have got full knowledge of what has happened.

00:16:43--> 00:16:50

And I have come to find out the chuva that you have been imprisoned and dethroned from your kingdom.

00:16:51--> 00:16:59

And you have asked my help to free you from your bondage and give you your kingdom back.

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

So he says, it is no astonishing news that monarchs lose and monarchs go to prison. And understand,

00:17:11--> 00:17:25

he writes just before this he says, NSO Pon Suleiman bin so Pon Salim bin Sultan bayezid illa phoron Cece Malik Willa, yet a foreign Sir,

00:17:27--> 00:17:39

I am so tan Suleiman the son of Sultan Salim the son of Sultan bayezid, this letter is from me to you, the king of the province of France.

00:17:40--> 00:17:44

Like mine is the kingdom yours is a province of France.

00:17:46--> 00:17:52

So he says to him, free your mind of thoughts and worry.

00:17:53--> 00:18:05

Our our nation has never held back in defeating a foe and taking over his lands. And we have conquered many difficult lands and, and many difficult cities.

00:18:06--> 00:18:10

And what has been said will be done. This is it.

00:18:15--> 00:18:22

I want to leave the story here. And I will come back to it at the end of my presentation tonight as to what actually happened and transpired.

00:18:24--> 00:18:25

But I want you to have a look

00:18:27--> 00:18:45

at the khilafah under the last of the Muslim rulers. And this is the Ottomans. And when he says I am the Sovereign of the Mediterranean and the Red Sea and the Black Sea. And

00:18:47--> 00:18:48

it covered most of the globe.

00:18:50--> 00:19:19

And then on the other side was still a Muslim land, Isfahan and Iran towards the other side and that is the empty quarter or the desert lands of Arabia. And on this side towards Morocco and Northern Africa, they will all still Muslim lands, just under different monarchs. But Suleiman at his time or the Ottomans at their time, was the supreme rulers of the bulk of the Muslim lands.

00:19:20--> 00:19:24

The question tonight is what

00:19:25--> 00:19:35

did this Muslim world look like inside like it is easy to conquer lots of land jungus handed it and you know he massacred people and built

00:19:36--> 00:19:45

you know towers from the skulls of people. But what was a Muslim civilization like and that is what we want to have a look at.

00:19:48--> 00:19:52

The first it was a civilization with humanity.

00:19:54--> 00:19:58

It felt and supported and helped other humans

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

There's a story that

00:20:05--> 00:20:06

let me just get my papers out

00:20:10--> 00:20:12

that an island

00:20:16--> 00:20:19

a disease, felled the potato plantations.

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

And their main food was potatoes and an island, especially amongst the poor.

00:20:28--> 00:20:34

So a product of this, that there was very little food produced that year.

00:20:35--> 00:20:39

And a lot of people died and the Irish dubbed it

00:20:41--> 00:20:43

the great hunger.

00:20:45--> 00:20:49

And they say a million people died and a million people left.

00:20:52--> 00:20:54

You know, the locality

00:20:55--> 00:20:57

million is a lot of people to die.

00:20:59--> 00:21:14

It isn't that there wasn't any food in Ireland there was. But Ireland was subjugated by the English. And a lot of the property was owned by the English. So the produce that was produced was sent back to England, and the poor died in Ireland.

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

So eventually, news of this reached the Ottoman hollyleaf that

00:21:23--> 00:21:29

they are humans, non Muslims, Christians buying an island out of poverty, please help.

00:21:30--> 00:21:52

And this was a time where wealth where the Ottomans were having some internal problems as well. So the hollyford felt a huge sense of responsibility. And in his humanity with man, he promised that I will send 10,000 silver pounds to Ireland.

00:21:53--> 00:21:55

But at the same time he was

00:21:57--> 00:21:59

he was not a reckless ruler.

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

And he recognized that I is under the stewardship of Britain.

00:22:07--> 00:22:14

So he found out how much the British Queen Queen Victoria is doing to help out Ireland.

00:22:15--> 00:22:21

And he found that she's only giving 2000 silver pounds.

00:22:22--> 00:22:32

And he had promised 10,000. So in recognizing that this would make her look very small. He reduced his number to 1000.

00:22:34--> 00:22:40

Do you see that Muslim monarchs didn't want the disruptions of other lands and other systems.

00:22:41--> 00:22:53

But he said I have made a promise of 10,000 I have to take goods to them. equivalent to that some although in money, I will give only 1000.

00:22:54--> 00:23:02

So he sent 1000 silver coins, which comes to a million something and our currency pounds

00:23:03--> 00:23:08

to them. And then he sent five shiploads of grains.

00:23:09--> 00:23:11

And he sent it through

00:23:14--> 00:23:27

a very long way. So Istanbul is there at sale sailed all the way through those lands until it reached island on the other side.

00:23:29--> 00:23:34

There was no income to expect no business this is just helping his fellow man.

00:23:36--> 00:23:37

And when it reached the

00:23:39--> 00:23:49

the people were very overwhelmed. And the nobles of Ireland wrote this letter of thanks and gratitude back to the Sultan.

00:23:50--> 00:23:52

And it reads a little like this.

00:23:54--> 00:24:04

We the nobleman gentlemen and inhabitants of Island want to express our thanks and gratitude for the Ottoman Sultans, magnificent assistance.

00:24:05--> 00:24:28

The Sultan's assistant response to this aid call displays an example to European states. numbers were relieved and safe from perishing through this timely act. We express our gratitude on their behalf and hope that the Ottoman Sultan and his dominions will be saved from the afflictions which have before us

00:24:29--> 00:24:32

and recognition of

00:24:33--> 00:24:37

the timely act of this gracious halifa.

00:24:38--> 00:24:52

They adopted the symbol of the crescent in the staff and some of the government buildings. And today the soccer team wears this proudly on their shirts

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

and memory of what the Ottoman hollyleaf had done for them.

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

At a time when very few would come to the aid. And not only the, the Istanbul send, but other Muslim dumb parts of the Islamic caliphate, Bombay and other countries, they all send goods to this land, so that they could save their fellow man.

00:25:23--> 00:25:33

And you contrast this approach with the senseless approach that is being associated with Muslim governments today.

00:25:34--> 00:25:42

And you see a direct contrast that what is real and what is fake. What is Suzuki and what is Mercedes

00:25:46--> 00:25:48

we are dubbed as a backward nation,

00:25:50--> 00:25:55

holding humanity back. But I want you to see what

00:25:57--> 00:25:59

the Muslim nation really looked like.

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

I am arguing that Islam was a very progressive organization, the Muslim government.

00:26:08--> 00:26:18

And when Islam cam and the amount of emphasis it put on an island and knowledge, it created a culture of seeking and learning.

00:26:19--> 00:26:58

You know, everyone wanted to learn, everyone wanted to know, a lot of Buddha in the Quran says look at the heavens, so the Muslim would look at the heavens. And I remember the words of Isaac Newton, Isaac Newton was trying to discover this gravity between planets. And you know, what is keeping the moon there? Why isn't the moon flying around? He says, I, I, you know, staring at the celestial bodies at the moon in the stars and stuff. Just I thought about it until my head began to ache and sleep perished.

00:26:59--> 00:27:13

So the Koran required that type of reflection, think so Muslims, you know, devout Muslims, what they're thinking, contemplating studying, learning what is happening, and through this.

00:27:15--> 00:27:30

And you can see pictures from those times they came about with trigonometry in geometry and astronomy and, and all the rest of the sciences. So sciences began to develop.

00:27:32--> 00:27:34

And the contrast was mind boggling.

00:27:36--> 00:27:43

He has a fantastic thing. This is not from those times, this is this is modern, but I couldn't find an old library. So I've gone with the modern.

00:27:45--> 00:27:48

In France, there was a library.

00:27:50--> 00:27:55

And understand the Francis The first was considered a very literate person.

00:27:56--> 00:28:04

Right, and this is in 15, in the 1530s. So in France, there was a library, how many books

00:28:08--> 00:28:09

you can get

00:28:12--> 00:28:21

700 books, and the library of France 700 books. At the same time.

00:28:22--> 00:28:29

In Spain, Islam and Muslim Spain, one library had half a million books.

00:28:30--> 00:28:33

And there was more than 700 libraries

00:28:36--> 00:28:41

or the 70. Anyway, it's a factor of 10 forgive it if I've got a wrong

00:28:42--> 00:29:05

but and when the Catholics Cameron took over, they wanted to take all sign of Islamic contribution of you know, to build a fake history and they have in Spain, you know, that they can and the volume and wrong and oppressed and nonsense. So then they burned a million textbooks.

00:29:06--> 00:29:21

A million you know, and books and those days were not printed they were written in HTML Josie Ella Hadar row stood on the member on his end of days. And he said with this hand, I have written 2000 books.

00:29:23--> 00:29:28

With this, I have written 2000 books, one of the Muslim scholars.

00:29:30--> 00:29:44

One of his works, one of his works is 800 volumes, one of his works, and he was such a scholar, so dedicated to knowledge that he used to say,

00:29:45--> 00:29:51

between CAC and bread, I opt for CAC units that drive

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

in a way the Arabs know what I'm talking about. Yeah, between that and the bread. I opt for that.

00:30:00--> 00:30:08

One, because I just have to break it, put it in my mouth, swallow it with water, I don't need to waste time chewing.

00:30:09--> 00:30:25

If I have bread and chew it wastes too much time. And that's why his work, you know, 800 bucks, one person right in your hand will go numb. But just one of his works 800 volts 800 volumes,

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

three of which has been printed.

00:30:29--> 00:30:53

So point is that scholarship and knowledge started to to take route, and people competed and knowledge. And because of the safety and security and welfare that Islam had in place innovation started. And I don't say innovations indeed but innovations and technology. So you have like this.

00:30:55--> 00:30:57

This wonderful individual.

00:30:59--> 00:31:04

Such has such an amazing, amazing story. You know, he had the longing to fly.

00:31:06--> 00:31:08

Do you know when you want to fly?

00:31:10--> 00:31:28

When there's nothing else to do on an on land anymore? You know, if people are surviving, they're too busy surviving. Once Life is good, then you start looking for other things to do. So Islam provided such a good life that this gentleman decided why can I fly like birds.

00:31:29--> 00:31:36

So he went to the Grand Mosque. And he made what is probably the first parachute

00:31:37--> 00:31:42

and stood on the menorah and jumped down, you know, hoping to fly.

00:31:43--> 00:31:50

And he had a rough landing the pocket the poor guy at this stage. He was relatively young. He had a rough landings, you know, you know,

00:31:52--> 00:31:54

aches and bruises. But he's he survived

00:31:55--> 00:31:59

his next attempt. He was 75 years old.

00:32:02--> 00:32:07

I need you to focus on this and imagine a 75 year old trying to fly.

00:32:08--> 00:32:17

Can you imagine there's a few distinct things about personalities of early Muslims. They had resilience, they didn't give up quick

00:32:18--> 00:32:21

enough, he set his mind to something Colossi was gonna do it.

00:32:23--> 00:32:43

So this time round, he made that other little thing of is that one. And he put eagle feathers on silk and bamboos and then went to the local mountain and all lights a risky game and I don't encourage kids to do it. It's already done. Like you got aeroplanes now it's finished us.

00:32:45--> 00:32:48

So he stood there, and he jumped

00:32:50--> 00:33:01

and he flew for about 10 minutes. But his landing was a bit rough. So he goes I didn't have a tail like if I had put a tail It would have been better.

00:33:02--> 00:33:04

And it took the Wright brothers

00:33:06--> 00:33:13

years before they can back to where this individual was in Muslim lands.

00:33:16--> 00:33:18

And the field of medicine

00:33:21--> 00:33:30

Islam was centuries ahead of everyone else. One of the the physicians and portobella in Spain

00:33:31--> 00:33:38

went to the non Muslim side to medicate and see what's going on in the medical world.

00:33:39--> 00:33:43

So he says I saw a man with the cyst on his leg.

00:33:45--> 00:33:54

So I suggested you know, an incision, a cut clear the the filth solid backup file yet, that will be fine.

00:33:56--> 00:34:02

And I saw a lady who had breathing problems. So he prescribed you know,

00:34:03--> 00:34:19

boil these vapors so it you know, soothes the inside and the lungs and so on and so forth. So he goes then they own Dr. kam, a doctor from those from from the non Muslim lands. Because this guy is just giving advice. People don't really trust you know, you've got a long beard. You're not really a scientist

00:34:20--> 00:34:21

alpha.

00:34:24--> 00:34:30

So he came to there on Dr. Kammen. He goes Nah, nonsense, bring the sword.

00:34:32--> 00:34:51

So he took the sword and he goes to the smack the guy's leg, the meat cut open the board reach the bone. It went through the bone, the marrow came out. The man fell down dead after a few minutes. So because he went to the lady with the breathing problem, and it goes, this is

00:34:52--> 00:34:53

she is possessed.

00:34:54--> 00:34:57

No serious. It's documented in his diary.

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

So what he did, he said, Bring the knife, he cut the head

00:35:06--> 00:35:16

until it reached the bone of the skull. And you drew a big, nice solid cross on it. And he goes, bring me salt, and then held salt on her to help her breathe.

00:35:18--> 00:35:26

And because, obviously if you have breathing problems, you know, anxiety and panic will probably not help so she died too.

00:35:28--> 00:35:31

And I don't see why you laughing It's a very sad thing.

00:35:32--> 00:35:33

All right.

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

So

00:35:38--> 00:35:39

progressive nation.

00:35:40--> 00:35:42

He has another thing.

00:35:45--> 00:35:48

The Streets of Spain were paved.

00:35:49--> 00:35:55

Five, not 400 years before it would even reach Britain.

00:35:56--> 00:36:04

Like 400 years before the Brits could even think and contemplate paving the roads, Muslim lands were already paved.

00:36:06--> 00:36:07

I'm trying to show

00:36:08--> 00:36:10

the difference. Cause

00:36:11--> 00:36:16

the aim is to make the world lose confidence in Islam.

00:36:18--> 00:36:51

So to say barbaric savages without any vision in the contribution, and then they give us these fake organizations and we've got a young amidst us dumb enough to believe that that is the real thing. And contrast to everything that aligned His Prophet has preached and said, and then, you know, because because of their lack of understanding and lack of element him in a desire to matter holla let's do something that looks relatively strong and dead stupid.

00:36:52--> 00:36:55

But classic, Islam wasn't like that.

00:36:57--> 00:37:04

Then there is this notion that you know, we keep women back. And

00:37:05--> 00:37:06

we are oppressive that way.

00:37:08--> 00:37:11

So let's look at female scholars in Islam.

00:37:12--> 00:37:16

My teacher and Jeff, Dr. Akram nadwi. Happy the hola tada

00:37:18--> 00:37:27

has done a research 15 years in just the female scholars of Hadith.

00:37:28--> 00:37:33

Just the female scholars of Hadith, not in the other sciences, just one science Howdy.

00:37:35--> 00:37:45

And he says, in my humble research, I have found 9000 scholars who are female in this in the in the science of Howdy.

00:37:47--> 00:37:49

Not small giant of scholars.

00:37:51--> 00:37:55

At the same time, if you look at the rest of the world

00:37:57--> 00:38:04

and the dark mountains of Europe, the catholic church there used to recognize women as human.

00:38:06--> 00:38:10

And then later on the church said okay, they're human, but they're

00:38:11--> 00:38:16

a subclass human, and they have a filthy soul.

00:38:17--> 00:38:18

And if you left

00:38:20--> 00:38:34

Europe and went there to the subcontinent, there, if a husband died, they used to burn the wife alive with him.

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

The practice was called Sati

00:38:39--> 00:39:00

it was there even when the British colonized India, this footage is offered. Now traditionally in Indian society, forget about bollywood, I'm talking about the original India right? You would get older guys marrying younger girls. So by default he was gonna go first.

00:39:01--> 00:39:02

You know he's old.

00:39:08--> 00:39:14

So the problem was that when he's dead, this young lady is left

00:39:15--> 00:39:21

and the rule was they used to beautify her. And then the Hindus banned they did they you know.

00:39:22--> 00:39:32

So they used to make the fire which they used to sit her on top of the wood and then burn her and him together. Like

00:39:33--> 00:39:58

and obviously you the the flames catching you start to scream and nature takes over and you want to run. Then they had these long sticks and they used to keep the gill down on the fire. So that was India and women kind and that was Europe and women kind and if you look at Arabia before Islam came they used to bury their their daughters alive.

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

Allah Subhana be a them being quoted. What is an mo ooda to surrender to be a dam been quoted when the infant female infant will be asked for what sin when you kill the child.

00:40:15--> 00:40:31

So this was the world before Islam and in Islam and when Islam can it encouraged scholarship and contribution from all genders, so that you had people

00:40:35--> 00:40:42

like amaura bin Abdul Rahman. She was a giant of the scholars of Hadith.

00:40:44--> 00:40:46

And she used to give fatwa

00:40:47--> 00:40:55

like verdicts, not when she was alone, at the time when scholars like the Anwar ethnos obeyed, was still alive.

00:40:56--> 00:41:12

And the same locality. Once listen to this story, the local judge, and judges in Islam are learned people you don't get any Tom Dick and Harry hollows come, you know, I want you to make judgments. They are learned people. So the judge

00:41:14--> 00:41:20

case was presented to him a Syrian Christian was caught for stealing.

00:41:21--> 00:41:29

And he was brought to the Islamic court for justice and Islamic law with regards to

00:41:30--> 00:41:41

stealing is the cutting of the hand. So the judge decided the law is cut his hand cut off his hand. So news reached a camera.

00:41:44--> 00:41:46

And she sent her messenger to the judge,

00:41:48--> 00:41:51

tell the judge to stop. So the judge stopped.

00:41:53--> 00:42:07

You cannot cut his hand release him, because I have a heavy from our issue out of the law on her who said the Prophet said, if the theft is less than a quarter dinar, you do not cut the hand.

00:42:08--> 00:42:17

And he has stolen in less than a quarter let him be. So he was released immediately on the command of a lady

00:42:19--> 00:42:23

at a time where the rest of the world didn't consider them human.

00:42:25--> 00:42:28

And then we are the oppressors of women.

00:42:33--> 00:42:37

Under that was another scholar of Hadith.

00:42:38--> 00:42:55

And just so that you see contribution, she used to teach in the actual Masjid and the Grand Mosque of Damascus and, you know, in Syria for six months, and then go for six months in teaching al upfa.

00:42:58--> 00:43:05

And her students included the holly four of the time. Abdulmalik is number one.

00:43:06--> 00:43:13

In Abdulmalik number one don't think he's like the current rulers, you know, he doesn't know his right hand from his left hand. It wasn't like that.

00:43:15--> 00:43:21

The son of Omar epinal kopparberg, the Allahu anhu reached an old age and he was on his deathbed.

00:43:23--> 00:43:24

The son of amarapura.

00:43:26--> 00:43:42

So at his deathbed, the people began to panic. And they said, or elders of the kurush It looks like you're all about to perish. You're all dying one after the other, who will we ask after you?

00:43:45--> 00:43:46

So he said

00:43:48--> 00:43:50

Marwan has a son,

00:43:51--> 00:44:12

ask him after us. This is Abdul Malik. He was so then at 40 Hainan Island that the son of Omar epinal kebab said asked him after us and this Khalifa used to sit as a as a student at the feet of under the Sudan howdy from her

00:44:14--> 00:44:20

and when her Doris used to finish he used to help her to go to the feed my lines for the Salah.

00:44:26--> 00:44:37

And stories like this are many innumerous you can look at the work of Dr. Akram nadwi for further reference on that inshallah.

00:44:39--> 00:44:41

Now, back to our story.

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

The remember the story.

00:44:47--> 00:44:50

All right. So

00:44:52--> 00:44:56

Suleiman albinoni wrote a letter

00:44:57--> 00:44:58

to

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

the

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

Holy Roman Emperor Charles the fifth

00:45:05--> 00:45:07

and the letter was very blunt.

00:45:09--> 00:45:16

And he said, You will pay this much money to me annually and you will release Francis

00:45:19--> 00:45:29

you know Francis of France, the one that was captured by Yeah, he goes, you will release that monarch and you will send this much money as text to me annually.

00:45:32--> 00:45:33

So,

00:45:35--> 00:45:47

the Emperor, the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles the fifth, you know, remember how I said, success breeds success, he was on a high, you know, no way this is not going to happen.

00:45:49--> 00:45:52

So, Suleiman al cannoli sent him this man

00:45:55--> 00:45:58

is highroad in Barbarossa.

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

You will see him in movies as the pirate, you know what the red beard in one eye.

00:46:06--> 00:46:09

That's because they want to make your heroes look bad.

00:46:10--> 00:46:14

So that you don't have anything to aspire towards.

00:46:15--> 00:46:19

But this was a a general of the Ottoman Empire.

00:46:21--> 00:46:22

And he went

00:46:23--> 00:46:25

to Hungary

00:46:27--> 00:46:34

and laid siege to it, and within a few months, conquered the whole country.

00:46:36--> 00:46:48

So, Charles released Francis and agreed to pay 30,000 gold coin Zia to the Ottoman khilafah the stacks

00:46:50--> 00:46:56

and the halifa told him that cannot be two Emperor's on Earth at the same time.

00:46:57--> 00:47:03

From now on, you are the king of Spain. So he became just the king of Spain

00:47:05--> 00:47:05

and

00:47:06--> 00:47:20

Solomon Islands Kanu and he took over this new country. He didn't rain in there, he didn't bring it part of the Ottoman Empire. Instead he let it be and he withdrew back.

00:47:22--> 00:47:46

And then one of the subjects actual king that had fought him ran away and died later on a new king cam and he came to Suleiman Antone, and he swore allegiance to him. And he said, we will be under your protection, but we will be an independent state. And Suleiman al cannone accepted this. And they lived in harmony for the years to come.

00:47:48--> 00:47:53

And the friendship with France developed here.

00:47:54--> 00:47:55

And

00:47:57--> 00:48:16

they still remained in good terms and as friends for, you know, a few centuries until Napoleon attacked Egypt, which was part of the Ottoman Empire later on. And you will understand whenever there is a treaty, you won't find the Muslim in history break the treaty first.

00:48:18--> 00:48:26

So France broke the treaty and attacked the Muslim lands in an Egypt under Napoleon.

00:48:28--> 00:48:28

But

00:48:31--> 00:48:37

so, King Charles Charles the fifth just became the king of Spain, and

00:48:38--> 00:49:00

highroad in Barbarossa, was faced with one of the biggest and final challenges of the times, and that was the Armada of the Spanish of the Spanish ships. So they put the pope himself came and made a declaration that you have to help against the Ottoman. khilafah

00:49:01--> 00:49:09

so the Catholics poured wealth and money and support until they amassed 6000 ships

00:49:11--> 00:49:13

and 60,000 soldiers,

00:49:15--> 00:49:19

sailors and they came to attack the Muslim lands.

00:49:21--> 00:49:23

So hierro Dean Barbarossa

00:49:25--> 00:49:26

went out to meet him.

00:49:27--> 00:49:29

And he had with him

00:49:31--> 00:49:33

122 ships

00:49:35--> 00:49:40

and some 22,000 men as opposed to the 60,000 that they had

00:49:41--> 00:49:57

and out, you know, of acute acute experience in years, you know, on the field. A lot of Blizzard made him come up with a strategy. And in five hours he destroyed the whole of the ships.

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

So he

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

Can back.

00:50:02--> 00:50:35

And then remember cost spine has just been taken from the Muslims, and you've had Spanish Inquisition. That was my to go and root out remnants of Islam and Muslims and Jews that might have still existed and those lands, and you look at church history and church documentation, some of the ugliest punishments in the annals of human history was invented by the church there to punish Muslims and Jews who are considered to hide their faith and Christian lands.

00:50:36--> 00:51:11

So then Barbarossa herodian Barbarossa left here and went to Spain, and freed the Muslims from the Inquisition there. And by the time he came back to the Ottoman lands, the halifa himself came down to meet him at the shores of the halo effect. And they say when the new scam that he has defeated the Armada of the of the spine, tech billionaires went out and Makkah and Medina and bombed by in an Istanbul celebrating the achievement of this awesome individual,

00:51:12--> 00:51:16

I will conclude the question is, so what happened?

00:51:17--> 00:51:20

Because today we are very different from what we used to be.

00:51:22--> 00:51:22

What happened,

00:51:23--> 00:51:29

my belief, my analysis and my input in it is we changed

00:51:31--> 00:51:32

which changed.

00:51:34--> 00:51:38

The rule is this and carefully.

00:51:39--> 00:51:42

Allah will give you what you deserve.

00:51:44--> 00:51:53

If you deserve and have the competencies, the skills, the abilities that you know, to be able to handle the responsibility, Allah will give you that

00:51:55--> 00:52:06

when you don't deserve it anymore and no longer have the competencies, abilities, requirements to handle that office, Allah takes it from you. The verse says the same,

00:52:07--> 00:52:36

that it can be unknown luchador Miyako, mocha urinary methane and Anna hair comb in Hatha Yoga room Abby unfussy him, Allah will not take a favor that he has favored you with, except when you change so much that you no longer deserve the favor so Allah snatches it from you good and clean. And he won't give it back to you in Allahu Allah you have a euro map your home in Hatha Yoga you may be unfussy him, Allah won't

00:52:38--> 00:52:58

change your condition until you change what is within yourselves. So when you change yourself and you become like your predecessors that passed before you allow will return the favors back to you. So the secret of it all in a short sentence is internal.

00:52:59--> 00:53:11

Become people and have the stamina, the courage, the resilience, the the competencies of the old and Allah will give you the honors of the old

00:53:14--> 00:53:33

and have the weaknesses and the pathetic lethargic ness that seems to be grappling the Muslim world and you will get what you have today. So called Toma Colton taco hacer una tonfa mina la la casa yet I'm from enough Siva shaytaan wa Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
