Episode Notes

In this video by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi, we are acquainted at length about two other Sahabas – Adi Ibn Hatim RA and Thumamah Ibn Uthal RA.

The father of Adi Ibn Hatim was the most generous of all people, a poet and the chieftain of his tribe. He held great authority and was respected greatly amongst his people.his daughter, Saffanah, once happened to be captured by the troops of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ when they came searching for Ibn Hatim RA. He had actually fled from his city and his whereabouts were not be heard of. Saffanah was a braveheart and confidently stood in front of the Prophet ﷺ and demanded her freedom. But she was reminded of her brother everytime she made an appeal. Finally, when she was set free, she went in search of her brother Ibn Hatim. Having finally found him, he was rebuked incessantly for his cowardly behaviour .

A wish for a meeting with the Prophet ﷺ lands him at the doorsteps of the messenger of Allah SAW and Adi RA narrates, “I came to the house of the Prophet ﷺ and he said,: “O Adi, accept Islam and you will be safe!” to which I replied, “I already have a religion.” The Prophet ﷺ said, “I know more about religion than you do.” I said, “You know more about my religion than I do?” The Prophet said, “Yes, are not you from the Rukusiyyah? And when you go to war, do you not share one quarter of your people’s booties?” I said, “Yes.” The Prophet ﷺ said, “I know what is preventing you from accepting Islam. You think that the only people to follow this religion are the weak and oppressed who have no strength.he further continues,’ Perhaps, the only thing that prevents you from entering this religion is what you see of the small number of Muslims and their numerous enemies. By Allah, the time is near when you would hear of the woman setting out from Qadisiyyah on her camel until she reaches this house, not fearing anyone except Allah. The Prophet ﷺ then quoted his third reason,’Perhaps what prevents you from entering this religion is that you only see that sovereignty and power rest in the hands of those who are not Muslims. By Allah, you will soon hear of treasures which we shall acquire.’

Do listen to the complete hadith to understand how his conversion to Islam took place. He fought alongside Ali ibn Abi Talib RA in the Battle of Camel and Battle of Siffin and died at the age of 102 in the year 67 H in Kufa where his grave remains to this day.

Next in line for elucidation is Thumamah ibn Uthal RA who was not as famous as Ali Ibn Hatim RA but he was a handsome man who was very beloved to tribe of Yamamah which was his origin.

When he was captured by the troops of the Prophet ﷺ, he said to his family, “Get what food you can and send it to Thumamah ibn Uthal.” which was from whatever was reserved for the Messenger of Allah ﷺ.The Prophet ﷺ then approached Thumamah RA hoping to encourage him to get converted to Islam. “What do you have to say for yourself?” he asked. “If you want to kill me as revenge,” Thumamah replied, “You will have someone of royalty to kill. If, out of your kindness, you want to forgive, I will be grateful. If you want money in compensation, I shall give you whatever you ask.” The Prophet ﷺ then repeated the same questions for three days only to receive the same answer. Then the Prophet ﷺ ordered his people to set Thumamah free.

An interesting incident happened when Thumamah RA left the mosque of the Prophet ﷺ. He rode to a luscious garden near Madina and bathed himself and went back to the Prophet ﷺ house. He then stood before the Muslims and proclaimed Shahadah.He then went to the Prophet ﷺ and said: “O Muhammad, by God, there was never on this earth a face more despicable than yours. Now, yours is the dearest face of all to me.”

Thumamah RA then left to fulfill his Umrah and upon reaching Makkah, he began chanting in a resonant voice: “Labbayk Allahumma labbayk. Labbayk La shareeka Laka labbayk. Innal hamda wan ni’mata Laka wal mulk. Laa shareeka Lak. “ He was thus the first Muslim on the face of the earth to recite the Talbiyah.

No hadith have been narrated by Thumamah RA.

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

cinnabar Haman hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad Ali, he was very bad. So today inshallah tada we're going to do two of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, both of them with somewhat similar backgrounds with very different stories. And both of them are Christian leaders of Arabian peninsula. Both of them are Christian kings, when we say kings, they're not quite kings, the way we understand kings, they're more like chieftains, but they're, they had a status or a rank that was between the king and between the chieftain and we're going to start with the more famous of the two. And that is it even had a thought I'd even had him I

00:00:59--> 00:01:43

thought he even had him. We don't have too many details. But what we do is a very interesting story. And also we have some ahaadeeth narrated by him, and then move on to the second story as well. I'd even had Timothy his main fame actually comes from his father. His father was far more famous than him. And his father was none other than the famous Hatem thought he had Timothy, every single out of has heard of had them about you to this day, after 1500 years, people are still aware of who he is. And that's the father, not the Son, and the father. Hatem was a chieftain of the tribe of light. And the tie is in the modern city of hi hat. It is a city in Saudi Arabian Arabia, which is in northern

00:01:43--> 00:01:58

Arabia. It's also one of the most beautiful one of the most green areas of the kingdom, and Hatem a thought he what was he known for or outdoors? What was he known for? khuddam had Timothy he his name is associated with generosity.

00:01:59--> 00:02:46

Economic Manhattan is like they would say. So what they say you'll probably his method, he is the person who sets the standards for generosity. Everybody has heard of the fame of Hatton when it comes to generosity and taking care of guests had Tim's mother, by the way, it seems like he learned generosity from her. His mother was his mother was extremely generous, and she would give so much wealth that in fact, her brothers denied her of her inheritance so that she could no longer give any money to anybody. So it seems as if he learned generosity from her and had Timothy, he, he was not only generous, he was the chieftain of his people. And he was also a poet. In other words, he was

00:02:46--> 00:03:30

the man in pre Arabia, he was everything that people wanted people to be, he was generous, he was kind, he was Noble. He was a chieftain, and he was a poet, and he and his people. They followed a sect of Christianity, which in Arabic is called aku, sia, and I look this up where the origin is, and I could not find the origin of the term otaku sia, but it appears to me and Allah knows best it appears to me that this is essentially orthodox, Christian Siracusa Orthodox Christianity, because the type of Christianity that they followed is now called Syrian or Syriac orthodox. And it is also called the Jacobites, also called a monophysites, etc, etc. No need to get into all of that

00:03:30--> 00:03:31

Christian

00:03:32--> 00:04:11

issues. But just FYI, you should know the Christianity that the northern Arabs followed was not the Christianity of Rome. It was not the Christianity that we now call Catholic Christianity because it was Roman Christianity, that became Catholic Christianity. The Arabs followed another version, which is now Orthodox Christianity, or is called Syriac orthodoxy, Coptic Orthodox nestorianism. There are different versions that they follow back to our story. So how to have them, as we said, was this chieftain of the people of flight, he had a massive house. And by the way, very interestingly enough, his house still remains it is a tourist site. To this day, it's a palace you can still see

00:04:11--> 00:04:54

the remnants of the palace, and it is well known that he would feed any stranger that comes with the most luxurious and the most exotic. Whatever he had, he would give and many stories, or no it narrated about the father, meaning Hatem. Once it is narrated, that a group came to him and he told his servants to sacrifice the camel and his servants whispered to him, we are out of camels, you fed the last one to the guests yesterday. So he said, Do you not have my steed my horse outside? And they said, Yes, he said, sacrifice that. They said, but that is your prized horse. It is faster than any animal and he said sacrifice that note, had to eat horses, but this is pre Islam anyway, and the

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

Arabs ate horses and they also considered it to be a permissible meat and islamically horses are also highlighted anyway.

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

Is he sacrificed his horse to feed his his guests and again, there's many many stories once it is narrated that a Bedouin passed by the House of Hatem after he had died. He saw one of the daughters of had him dressed shabbily one of the young girls dressed very shallowly. And he said, You are the daughter of Hatem and you're dressed like this. And she replied, the column of Hatem has left us like this means he left with all that wealth, he gave it all away, and we have nothing left. And of course, Callum, I've given hood buzz about this was well known in Islamic, Hadith and Quran that the blessings of cudham are a whole different topic. Just interestingly enough, the word for nobility is

00:05:43--> 00:06:21

the same as the word for generosity in Arabic gum means both noble and generous, they're both the exact same word. And of course Allah himself, his name is Al Karim. And the angels are Kettleman cat two bean and their mocha amin and ally xojo caramba. Bunny Adam, he has honor the children of Adam and Allah zoologia loves the Karim. Our Prophet system said the Karim is beloved to Allah and the beloved to the people and the one who stingy is despised by Allah and despised by the people. And we even see this in our lives as well. Those who are generous to others, Allah azza wa jal gives them more. And in generally speaking, the ones who are the most generous are the ones that live the best

00:06:21--> 00:06:59

as well. They keep on giving, they keep on getting from Allah subhana wa Tada. And as well they are the most beloved amongst the people, the ones who give the most are the ones who are the most beloved as well. So this is Hatem a thought he he died before hearing about Islam, so he died in his faith tradition. He died before hearing of Islam he died six so eight or so 6605. But he didn't hear Islam because he's living up north and it was before the time that Islam in the Medina and phase did not reach him. Whether he heard about the president McCrone or we do not know but he died before the coming. Not before the coming of Islam. He was alive when the process is preaching in Mecca. But

00:06:59--> 00:07:42

there's no knowledge of him having heard of Islam up north because the Medina and phase had not begun when he died, he died in the muck and face so Allah azza wa jal knows best about that. It was raised in this environment and it is the son of a king therefore the son of a chieftain, and as Islam began to spread in the Medina and face slowly but surely tribes are being conquered, and tribes are embracing Islam and I these area which is the modern city and the modern state of Hatton Hatton is a province up north above Medina. So above Medina, you have yamamah you have nudged you have Hatton, these are all in the north of Medina down, keep on going and you'll get to the book

00:07:42--> 00:08:22

keep on going. Then you get to Syria. All of these are provinces of Arabia Hatton is where it even happened was the province of Beit where the lay tribe was is heading one by one these provinces are either embracing Islam or being conquered by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So it is told you had better do something. It is told by his people that either negotiate with him or embrace the faith. And it said, I am happy in my Deen and I have no need of another Deen. I'm happy being a Christian. I don't need any other faith. And, of course, there's a sense of arrogance towards the pagans as well who are embracing Islam. He felt he's better than them. And, of course, as a

00:08:22--> 00:09:05

Christian, he was better than them. And he felt he's there's no need to follow another religion, much less politically surrender his authority to a person in Medina. However, he began to be worried about his power as one province after another is conquered. And eventually he started to take take some precautions. He told his shepherds, he told his his people that keep track of the armies of Mohammed, so I said them, and if they come close to our land, tell me and he had prepared a bunch of camels with his wealth with food with drink, in case he needed to flee. He could take those Gamble's and flee. One day, a shepherd came rushing to him and said, You keep on asking us if the army of

00:09:05--> 00:09:50

Mohammed comes close. What if it were to come? What would you do? He said, you see those camels there? I would jump on them and flee. So his Shepherd said, then you'd better do what you just said you do, meaning it's time they're coming. You better do what you said you're going to do. So Id took his wife and children, and he simply abandoned everything. And he fled to the land of Syria, where of course he was surrounded by fellow Christians. However, it said, I felt even more miserable in Syria than I had basically waiting for the attack in my land, because obviously he in Syria, he might be a fellow Christian, but he is an Arab, and they are, they are Greeks and Romans, and

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

culturally and linguistically everything is different. He felt like a stranger because he was a stranger, so he was not happy in Syria around the same

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

time where this is happening. Another incident happens with with these family.

00:10:05--> 00:10:20

And that is that a group of the people of the tribe of light are captured and brought to Medina, perhaps in the same battle that had taken place perhaps they had found elsewhere we don't know. In one of them was the daughter of

00:10:22--> 00:11:11

Hatem meaning the sister of ID, okay, her name was stefana. Her name was Savannah. In one version, it says it is the aunt of I've even had him so the sister of Hatem so either the, the this either the sister of ID, or the aunt of it one of the two, okay, and the version of Muslim Amendment says the aunt and the version of him in his house as the sister. In any case, one of the women of the household, a direct relative is captured, and she is taken to Medina, no Hatem a thought he is the most famous out of pre Islam. There is no one that is more famous than him. And as I said, one of the main indications of his fame is that to this day, every out of without exception, that has been

00:11:11--> 00:11:57

raised and out of lense, and has gone through any out of education system knows how to multiply. He's one of those who's To this day, 1500 years later, his name remains legendary. That's very rare for somebody famous. So imagine if this is the case, now how about back then, right in his lifetime, and after his death, so Hi, Timothy, he is somebody who is the legendary out all of the time, so anybody related to him, obviously, is royalty. So this lady South Savannah, Savannah, she stands up from amongst the prisoners, and she speaks boldly to the Prophet salallahu idea he was sending them, the books of history say she was a bold lady, and she did not mince her words, she did not bite her

00:11:57--> 00:12:12

tongue. In those days, ladies work generally reserved and shy, the daughter of Hatem a thought he is not like that the daughter of had them I thought he is very, very bold, and she has no problem, you know, asserting who she is. And she introduced herself.

00:12:13--> 00:12:52

And she said, Oh, Mohammed, she's not a Muslim at the time, oh, Mohammed gives me my freedom. Like she just demanded it like that. I am the daughter of Hatem a buddy, give me my freedom. Oh, no, no, Allah. Yeah. So the profitsystem seem to be somewhat irritated and said that Id had been Hatem is the one who fled away from Allah and His Messenger, because the new spread that when the armies came, or the flood and took his stuff and ran away, that's a very cowardly thing to do. And it's very undignified, and it's also something that he's running away from Islam. So the process is not happy at what he has done. So if even if your sister He is the one who fled away from Allah and His

00:12:52--> 00:13:34

Messenger, and he did not give her her request, the next day, the same thing she stood up, and she asked, the prophet SAW the setup for her freedom. And he said the same thing. The third day again, she asked, so she's very assertive, and at this time, the process of then said, Go and free her. So he allowed for her to be freed. Then it just said that I never thought it was close by so I leave whispered to her that asked the Prophet system to give you a camel. So even Ali wants her to be saved. It wants to get back to her brother. And of course, the reason being that everybody wants her brother to convert. So she asked the Prophet system for a camel to go home. And the Prophet system

00:13:34--> 00:14:15

said no, until you find safe passage. I can't just give you a camel and you wander in the middle of the desert like this. He wanted to protect the honor even of a non Muslim lady he wanted to protect now the reason of course, is because it's dangerous for a lady to be wandering around. Even if it's just it's she's not a Muslim, she's safer in Medina, nothing's gonna happen to her in Medina, you're protected here until you find a safe passage safe caravan, then I'll let you go. So she waited for a few weeks until finally, a caravan either from her tribe or a neighboring tribe buying and selling goes to Medina, and she negotiates with them it is said she recognized somebody, and so they

00:14:15--> 00:14:58

promised her safe passage. So she then demanded her camel and the profitsystem gave her the camel to go. And she returned to her people only to discover that it had fled up north. I'd even had them had fled up north. So she followed him and she went to ID up in Syria to find her brother. And she then rebuked him a severe rebuking that you have embarrassed us, you have ashamed us, your father would never have done this. He's the leader. He couldn't have just fled like this. He could either negotiate or surrender or do something that a leader should do. How could you have done this so she's fuming in anger at him. And then she says that and I was with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

wasallam and I

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

him to be a noble man. She's not a Muslim uh, yet she, by the way, she eventually embraces Islam right now she's not a Muslim, if he is truthful, then your honor to follow him. And even if he is not truthful, you will not be a loser being with him. In other words, her assessment of the Prophet system is that if he's truthful, hamdulillah great. Even if he's not truthful, he's not a prophet in her eyes. He's a great leader. That's what she's saying, okay? Even if he's not truthful, you're not a loser being with him, you're still gonna gain honor to be with him. So when his own sister is now telling him that he needs to go and see who the Profit System is, then he decided to make his way

00:15:43--> 00:16:27

down, he was already miserable in Syria anyway. So he decided to go and see who the Profit System was, but he did not want to convert he wanted to just try to negotiate something. And also in this time, when it had been mentioned, and somebody got angry, by mentioning the name of it, in Medina, the Prophet salallahu it who was send them said, rather I hope that Allah subhana wa tada will bring him to me, and that he shall put his hand in my hand. So the profitsystem was hopeful that it will come to Medina, and that it will embrace Islam, even though he had fled away and done a very undignified thing for the son of had Timothy to do this is very, very unbecoming of the son of had

00:16:27--> 00:16:29

them apply to act in such a

00:16:30--> 00:17:13

cowardly fashion, just to take care of himself and his family and flee away like this. It wasn't something that was becoming, nonetheless, he remains the son of Timothy, and he is well beloved and respected by his people, despite all that has happened. So it comes all the way down to Medina. And as he enters the city, people recognize him and this shows you how famous he was in the pre internet era who knew what anybody looked like. Yet when it entered Medina, people began chanting it his ID it says it even had him and the halls, not the halls the bazaars and the marketplace began, people began pointing that's it even had to imagine that's how famous his ID wasn't, it had done nothing

00:17:13--> 00:17:50

other than be the son of his father. So just think about that. His claim to fame is who his father is. That's it. That's all like what a legend that man must have been that it is now just because of his father, that famous. So he came to the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam and Subhan Allah exactly like the door of the process. And he walked straight into the masjid. And he recognized the man sitting in the middle must be the Prophet saw something he didn't have seen him before. And he put his hand out to shake it, like the people do. Obviously, it is not becoming of a Muslim to do this, because there's more respect given, but it is not a Muslim yet. So he just walks

00:17:50--> 00:18:29

in barges in, just walk straight into the middle, and he puts his hand and what did the process of say, I wish that he puts his hand in my hand. Right And this is exactly what happened. So the Prophet says and put his hand up to greet him. But he said man, and who is this because he's not using the machine he's not hearing the people outside. So it says I am Id have been hacked him mid have been hacked him. So when the Prophet salallahu idea he was seldom heard this, he did express the same expression he gave to his sister, Alfa Romeo Allah, he would have suited the same idea that ran away from Allah and His messenger. So there's a little bit of reprimand, like the same one who

00:18:29--> 00:19:16

did that. And then there was silence, then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stood up and grabbed him by the hand and walked him to his own house. And this is an honor that is rarely given in this era. Rarely given, in fact, it would be hard pressed to find similar very few times this has happened, that the Profit System essentially stops everything he's doing, whatever was going on, which we don't know right now, whatever, whatever was going all the Sahaba surrounding him, he stops everything. He holds it by the hand, and he takes him to his own house to honor it even had him and again, all of this shows us the the the respect that should be given to important people. And I've

00:19:16--> 00:19:54

said this many times in this theater, you know this from me, some Muslims have a very, very naive understanding of reality and of the zero, and they say, oh, everybody is exactly equal what everybody is equal. In one sense. nobody's saying they're not but common. And by the way, that people who say this, they themselves don't treat everybody equally. They themselves if a very, very important dignitary came, they themselves would bend over backwards and be extra charitable. That's common sense. Nothing and Islamic about this, but the only thing is in Islam, when such a person comes, you treat him with the extra treatment not because of his status, but because of what Islam

00:19:54--> 00:20:00

might gain by that status, not because of your ego, but because the religion

00:20:00--> 00:20:46

benefit because of that person's background and status. This is something that is well known throughout the Sierra. And of course there's even a hadith Elijah komori that attacked him Kadima Coleman for a curry move. This is a hadith when the nobleman of a group comes to you, then you show him nobility in honor that Giacomo qcom Kadima comin home in fact remove when the khadim when the dignitary of a person comes to you then show him respect. And also when sadly been wife came, when the one that when the judgment was going to be given, for after the Battle of zap, he came on on on his animal and he was wounded. The Prophet system said to the unsought coup in ICU, they can stand

00:20:46--> 00:21:22

up to greet your leader don't just sit here when he's coming. So he told the unsought to stand up to greet your leader, there's not the way you're supposed to be when your own leader is coming. And all of these incidents and evidence has showed that of course, of course, when a person who is given respect in his community, comes to our community, we give him a similar amount of respect. It's something that goes with the territory. Unfortunately, again, many of our Muslims, they really don't understand these basic facts and, and and they take offense at these types of things. And there are many, many evidences from the Sierra, for this regard, nonetheless. So here the Prophet says that

00:21:22--> 00:22:05

I'm stood up, took it by the hand and walked him to his own house. On the way as he's walking to the house, a frail old lady hobbled up she didn't recognize it, couldn't care about it. She saw the process and said, Yeah, Rasulullah in Nila cahaya, I have a need I need to talk to you about. So he let go of it his hand. And he walked to the old lady. And it stood there in shock. That How could not because he felt honored. The leaders leader and I'm the leader, he's the leader. We're being honored. Now some unknown frail old lady, you can tell by her dress, she's not a VIP, you can tell by her demeanor. She's not somebody but and she's just asking whatever her need might be. And the

00:22:05--> 00:22:45

process of stood there patiently listening to her for a while, she thought Oh, she she took a while to whatever, we have no idea what it was, whatever her question, whatever her issue. And then when it when it was done, he returned back to ID, an ID said, well, law he This is not he said to himself. This is not the characteristic of a king. This is the characteristic of a prophet. This is not how kings act, that when an old lady comes, they don't just stop their meeting with another VIP, and then do that. So this also shows us Yes, indeed, we honor dignitaries, but not at the expense of disrespecting other people. Yes, we go out of our way to show extra respect to those who deserve it.

00:22:45--> 00:23:21

But in that extra respect, we do not disrespect anyone who deserves our respect. And in fact, in one version of this incident, by the time they got to the process of his house, three people had stopped and one after the other. And this is understood, because the process of them is the center of attention. Everybody's coming to him for every need that they have. And they're asking the process and for different things. Somebody is asking for food and money. Others are asking for making the art because there's a lot of highway robbery, etc, etc. And these are all things that I'd be shocked to hear, because he's not even yet a Muslim. And yet he's hearing about all of these instances.

00:23:23--> 00:24:10

They arrived at the house of the Prophet system. And Addy is shocked to see a bear room, one small room, no palace, no, nothing, no grandiose, and not even furniture to sit on. nothing for him to sit on. Except there was one old cushion that had the leaves of the date palms stuffed in it, you know, some worn out cushion and the process and picked it up and threw it behind behind it and said sit down. And it felt embarrassed. And he picked it up and he gave it back and he said no, you sit down and I'll sit on the floor and the process and then throw it back at him and I then gave it back and there was some third time did it. So I then sat down on the cushion. And then the profitsystem sat

00:24:10--> 00:24:44

down on the floor. And again, all of this is done to show honor. And so panelo real honor is shown by the heart and not by the possessions. Id felt honored, despite the fact that he's sitting on something he himself would not sit on back in his own house. But he felt honored that his that the Profit System is giving him his own cushion and his own seat and all of this again is done to open up the heart of it to Islam. Then the Prophet system immediately jumped in. Yeah, ID. What prevents you from saying La ilaha illa Allah.

00:24:45--> 00:24:48

Do you know of any inner other than Allah?

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

Now of course it is a Christian for him. Allah is God. So he doesn't know obviously you can talk about his version of Christianity. But in the end of the day, Christians are theoretically supposed to say there is

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

is no god but God theoretically they're supposed to say that. Okay, God is God. So the process is asked rhetorically, do you know any god besides a law? Why don't you say the Kadima ID is silent? The process of said, oh god, why don't you say Allahu Akbar? Do you know any that is better than Allah? Why can't you say Allahu Akbar, and ID is silent. Then the process who said oh I the slim to slim, accept Islam, you will be safe. So again, the earnestness, the bluntness of accepting Islam. accept Islam, you will be safe. It said, I am a person who has his own religion.

00:25:40--> 00:26:25

I have my own Deen, I don't need any other Deen. So the process of repeated is slim to slim. accept Islam, you will be safe. And again, this is simple. We we mentioned this so many times, as slim to slim and he speaking to a Christian, the only way to have peace in this world and the next is through Islam. A slim to slim. You want Allah salam, you want a lot of peace, you will need it through Islam. It won't happen if you are not a Muslim. The only religion acceptable to Allah is Islam. And he repeated this three times. And it keeps on saying in the original Allah Deen, I have my religion, I have it. I don't need another religion. I'm happy in my religion, then the Prophet

00:26:25--> 00:27:10

systems that I found this very interesting. And to be honest, I did not know this phrase until today. There's only today I learned this phrase and I did my research on it. Let's start aku Seon, aren't you a Roku see. And as I said, I did my research as much as I could, I could not with certainty, verify the origin of Roku See, but this this is found in the Hadith literature, are you not a Roku? See, I have a theory. And I could be wrong, that this is an Arabic sized of Orthodox. And it could be incorrect. But they even had Latin it was the Orthodox. And this is amazing, because the process of did not say Aren't you a Christian? He jumped to the specific type of Christianity

00:27:10--> 00:27:59

that it was upon. Okay. Now, regardless of where the origin is the process of did not say, aren't you a Christian, he jumped to the sect of Christianity that it was upon. And this is absolutely to me, very, very phenomenon. And I have not found any other instance of something like this, and the entire seal. So the process is well aware of the different sects of Christianity. And he's well aware which one it is upon. And let's start to see an orange, one orthodox. And it says, And do you know what our QC is, you know, an orthodox? Then the Prophet system said, in the land will be the Nika minca Subhana. Allah, I know your religion better than you Subhana Allah, what an amazing

00:27:59--> 00:28:37

phrase. I know your religion better than you. Then he proved it. And he proved it in a way that it essentially embraced Islam. He said, aren't you the leader of your people? Yes. And don't you take a fourth merbau of your people's wealth in taxes? one fourth, by the way, 25% which is close to what we guys pay here in America a little bit less than that. But Mashallah, it was already the western system. So don't want you to take a fourth of your people's wealth and taxes. Heidi said yes. And the process of said, And isn't that forbidden in your religion? So Panama?

00:28:38--> 00:29:21

Isn't that Haram in your own faith, and your own faith tradition? If you were to follow your Shetty, you should not be taking taxes from your people. And it said, I humbled myself in front of him. So Panama, just straight to the point. You call yourself a Christian. You call yourself orthodox, you think you're so high, but you're not following your own faith. So it says I humbled myself, which means lowering his head and he knows. And he said, and I knew he was a nebby. Because he knew what nobody else wouldn't. How? How does he know? I have one fourth of my people? How does he know my religious texts? How does he know when my own people don't know this that? Well, this is something

00:29:21--> 00:29:34

obscure. Again, most of the people are illiterate, most of the people don't know. And the Prophet system is telling him, don't you do this? How could you do this? And so he knew that he was a newbie, and he embraced Islam because of this. And so Pamela, this is something that

00:29:35--> 00:29:49

so many times the Prophet system does a minor miracle if you like for people to embrace Islam. So it lowers his head in shame, and he doesn't know what to say because the process has caught him. Then the president said O ID,

00:29:50--> 00:29:58

perhaps you are not wishing to embrace Islam because of the poverty that you see around me

00:29:59--> 00:30:00

because the people

00:30:00--> 00:30:14

are poor, the ladies come ask for money right now this and that, perhaps because of the poverty? If so, then by a law a time will come when money will be distributed and no one will even want to take it.

00:30:16--> 00:30:20

Oh ID is the number one now, perhaps you don't want to accept Islam because of poverty.

00:30:21--> 00:30:31

Because now what's happened, your posture what's happened here? So it's so powerful. And this is the psychology of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam first

00:30:32--> 00:31:24

theologically proved Islam. Why do you not say like that, hello, do you have a problem with Allahu Akbar? Then he disproved his version of Christianity, you're not really following what you yourselves believes. Right? So theologically proved the truth, disprove falsehood, but then they're still social issues that is bothering ID. Because to embrace the faith isn't just theology, how many people and I know such people personally I know them? They will say, yeah, theologically, Islam is true. But the Muslims are so backward, I can't I can't embrace or the stigma attached, or I'll have to give up this and that or or, or so it gets to the point of recognizing Islam is true. Recognizing

00:31:24--> 00:32:01

he's a hypocrite he's not a real Christian and he shouldn't pretend he is right. But then there's still issues in his heart and the process of lays it out because again, all of this is coming from Allah through God the divine is telling him what the issues are. So the president saying perhaps you're not embracing Islam because you see the people poor you're a rich man Your father was a rich man and you feel as if we're all poor here by Allah will lie at a time will come money will be so much in this oma people will give and there will be nobody to receive nobody's gonna want that money. Oh, ID is number one. Perhaps you are not wishing to embrace Islam, because you see us

00:32:01--> 00:32:48

surrounded by enemies. And you don't see us having army and wealth and prep not wealth, army and army and armor like it is like basically, how is to translate this like we don't have the material preparations for war basically, okay. We don't have material is in this regard. If so, then by Allah, a time will come when a lady will leave the city of ardisia and come to the house of Allah meaning the Kaaba all by herself, fearing none but Allah. So the second reason you seem to be politically weak are Muslims. And if you guys were true, then why are you politically weak? If you are the Navy, why are you politically weak? So perhaps you're not embracing Islam because you see us

00:32:48--> 00:33:11

politically weak. A time will come when we shall be so strong, that the lady will come from cardassia all the way across the sea, as in Iraq is in Iraq and Iran iraq now, and it will go all the way down to MCC and it will be so safe, she will not be worried for her safety will have that much power. then number three, oh ID

00:33:12--> 00:33:19

perhaps you are not wishing to embrace Islam, because you see, the kingdom's are in the hands of others.

00:33:20--> 00:34:11

Al mulk is in other people's hands. By Allah, a time will come when you shall conquer the lands of kisara of the Persian Emperor. And you shall own the white palaces of Babel in Iraq. And you shall distribute the wealth of kisser and Id this was the most amazing of the three he said kisara even hormoz kisser Ah, like you're talking about the kisser Ah, I'm gonna have his wealth, or we're gonna have his wealth. And the President said yes, kisara even homeless. And this is one can say civilization like we seem to be we don't have power. So the first is basically wealth. The second is armies slash political third is also political also civilizational like we don't seem to have much

00:34:11--> 00:34:54

here. Now this I found very intriguing because the impediments that I the has many in modern times have about Islam as well. As I said, I know such people being in my field of academia and whatnot. I meet such people all the time where they know Islam to be true, but they are troubled by other factors, not theology. They're troubled by the fact that the Muslim world seems backward. They're troubled by the fact that the GDP whatever is this and that, right, or, I mean, nobody says this, but I'm saying the number of Nobel Prize winners in the Muslim lands is this and other lands that means they have their reasons for doing this, okay. And this causes them to doubt and some had a

00:34:54--> 00:34:58

lot, rather than being so harsh on them. Think of the headache of it.

00:35:00--> 00:35:30

He is not talking to me or you. He's talking to the newbies awesome himself. Can you imagine? He's not talking to me, he's talking to the actual newbies I send them. And the process of exposes his heart and says, you're in doubt because of our poverty. But see, here's the point. Some people, some people can't help but judge the truth of a religion based on other factors. It's somewhat human nature. It's very few that can really see through all this. So you know what political power does not mean, you're right.

00:35:31--> 00:36:11

Civilization doesn't mean you're upon the money doesn't mean you're a better person. It takes an extra strength of purity, to get to that level. And there are many of hamdulillah who convert because of this, but there are many who don't. And here is it struggling to convert because of these three factors, and the Prophet system did not criticize them and say, why are you basing the truth on GDP? Why are you basically have to civilization because he knows and we all know as well now at this point, that civilizations come and go, and the time will come for the oma when it will be at the pinnacle. And Islam will demonstrate that it is capable of being a global force, but Allah azza

00:36:11--> 00:36:49

wa jal what typical a Buddha will have been enough, Allah gives and takes these things away. truth shall be with Islam. But power will not always be with Islam. truth shall be with Islam, but the economic benefit will not will not always be with Islam that will come and go. So the Prophet system is telling him and therefore, if some data is used this line as well, we should not criticize them. Sometimes many of us get more fundamentalist and fanatic than we need to be. And we simply dismiss these things as not being correct. And this is extra fanaticism. If somebody points out the beauty of Islamic civilization, the heritage of the past the technological achievements and whatnot, the

00:36:49--> 00:37:33

glory that was there's nothing wrong with that. And it is a sign of our civilization. And it is a sign of the great accomplishments that we did. And if we point to and again, you've heard me speak, you can hear this a million times from other lectures as well. There's no question that in its time, Islam was the most glorious civilization in the world. There's no question that the Islamic empire and the late or made an early I busted time was the largest empire humanity has ever seen, spanning the globe from underdose, all the way to China, Tajikistan, the entire, you know, that entire strip of the world is ruled under one Empire. This is the largest empire the world has ever seen, and the

00:37:33--> 00:38:11

technological achievements so we can go on and on. If somebody uses this for that we're at hamdulillah. Here's the pseudonym for us to do so. This is the precedent that the process is showing this, that this is a part of Islam, as well. And so I deal with later narrowed this and he would say, Well, I have seen two of the three, and I have no doubt that the third is going to happen as well. The two of the three, what did he see, he himself said, I participated in the Battle of qadisiya. I was of those who participated in the Battle of Odyssey. And we distributed the wealth of kisser off to the people like the profitsystem said, the the palaces of Babel, we basically own

00:38:11--> 00:38:52

them, and I myself saw a lady leave from piracy, on her way to hedge all alone, fearing none other than Allah azza wa jal, and the third one, I have no doubt it will happen. The third one is when money will be distributed, and no one will be there to take it. They say and Allah knows best this will happen in the time of the melody. They say this will happen inside the mat. They were once in the final Armageddon, when that battle takes place, and everything finishes up. So much wealth will be acquired, and there will be so few people as well, because everybody's dead after the Armageddon. So there will just be Money, money, money, and there won't be any need for it. People will you know,

00:38:52--> 00:39:13

like the process of said a man will be offered 100 gold coins, and he's gonna say I have no need for to keep it. And that's an amazing amount of wealth, even right now, if some others will offer 100 gold coins. I don't think anybody was saying you can keep it as a very huge amount of money. But that's that time will happen. Some have said that in the time of that it is this happened.

00:39:15--> 00:39:59

Allah knows best I don't think it would. Poverty was not eliminated in the time of disease. Allah knows best. But in any case, for sure. The third of them is going to happen whenever it happens as the Prophet ism predicted. So obviously, with the Prophet system, telling him these things, it embraced Islam, and it became a Muslim return to his land as a leader returned to his people. And this is the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu. I said of any time a leader converted, he got everything back. This is an enticement as well. Any leader who converted to Islam retains his status, his power, his dignity. So it goes back and becomes the leader of his people and his EMA and

00:39:59--> 00:40:00

became so

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

Strong that when the news came of the death of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam he is remember up north, and if you remember the wars that were all in that region, and it was in that region where all the fitten took place, and it was that region where most Salem Al Qaeda, and were sajha. And we're all of the people basically became martyred in that region. The one land that did not become molted was the land of light. That was, that's the one land that remained upon Islam and that entire region, because of it even had when everybody left Islam, it remained firm, and he commanded his people to remain firm. And so all of his people, the tribe of light, retained their Islam, and Ahmed

00:40:49--> 00:41:29

mahato later praised it for this and recognized his his his achievements and for this, and he then traveled to Medina after the death of the Prophet system. And as I just said, he participated in the Wars of the conquest, and he was of those who fought the Persians, he fought in the Battle of policia and he was active in the leadership of the Muslim community in various capacities, again, long list of specific things but it's basically he will obviously as a king, enjoy Hillier as a chieftain in pre Islam. He is a person of political strength, he is a person who knows how to rule. So the Holy Father used him in various capacities, until when the Civil War took place. He sided

00:41:29--> 00:42:06

very strongly with Eileen and all the love with Tyler and, and he became a staunch ally of it. And he fought with it in both battles in Safin and in Germany as a commander as a leader. And because of this, I've even had him as beloved to the Shia as well, because anybody who fought in the sight of it, it becomes so pause here, according to the sheer the definition of a Sahabi, those who stood with it. That's what they defined, not those who saw the process of those who stood with it, those who fought with it. So the Sahaba, and our definition who stood with it becomes harder for them. So they went when we say they don't respect the Sahaba, that's not technically true. It's just their

00:42:06--> 00:42:49

definition of Sahaba is different, who they define as Sahaba is different. So the ones who she actually the ones who supported it become the Sahaba. And they have been Hatem is one of them, as we said, magnified, and others that are might have been Yes, they all become Sahaba from their perspective. So I've even had them as beloved to both sects of Islam. And I leave the loved one placed him in charge of the major battalions in Sofia and in Gemini. So he had a huge stake in both of these battles. And of course, as we know, it was assassinated the love of Thailand, and that seems to have basically caused ID to withdraw from public life. And we don't hear anything about him

00:42:49--> 00:43:31

until his death in the year 67. Digital more than 100 years old, more than 100 years old, of course, either passed away or was killed 4546 Ah, so for the next 22 years, there's not a single mention of ID, which means he withdrew from public life. So after the death of a loved one, it would have been basically his own and the fact that he died also in Kufa. So he's living in Kufa, where everything took place. So he basically retired and he stays in Kufa until his death and they say that his burial is still known to this day in the city of Kufa. So that's all that we know about. It even had him a very brief story. And yet, I thought it to be very, very beautiful as well, because of the

00:43:31--> 00:43:49

lessons learned. We have one more story to do before we get there, some of the Hadeeth of it, even Hatem Id really does not have that many ID without repetition. There's around six or seven, very few without repetition. One of the things about it, by the way, is that he was a, a well known marksman, a Huntsman,

00:43:51--> 00:43:58

he would hunt and he was known, he was legendary for his hunting skills. So he has a number of Hadith about hunting, we're only going to mention some of them. But

00:44:00--> 00:44:33

one of the things I'm doing in these series, is we're trying to get a psychology of this habit through the Hadith scenario, as well. And if you see that's what I'm doing every time we get a so how do we narrate his Hadees? Because you want to see, well what is he interested in? Where is he getting from? So I've even had him we hear certain things, and it's not a coincidence that we have some of the most important ahaadeeth about food and hunting from God, because he's asking the process of specific questions. I'm not going to do all of them because we don't have time. We'll just do three or four Hadith from it, and then move on. And again, what's the Mohammed so one I even

00:44:33--> 00:44:41

had him and interviews a lot while he was setting them, man halophila You mean and follow as they are hired on minha? Yeah, TV lady who will hire

00:44:42--> 00:45:00

whoever swore by Allah an oath, then change his mind and thought that there is something better than his oath. Let him break the oath, give the co founder and do what is better. Okay, so this is Islamic fifth here, and it's something very important that if somebody

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

He makes a hell of in the name of a law says, Well law, I'm not going to do this. And he gave a hell of I'm not going to go to that person's house. Well, I'm not going to do this. He made a genuine Hanif and he thought it was for his best interest that he makes a hell of an oath with a last name. Then he changes his mind whatever the man did, he apologizes for whatever happened in the past is forgiven. So then the man feels You know what? Now I should not honor that. The process I'm saying don't feel guilty. If there's something better that can be done, that would destroy your head of give the photo. So feed 10 people or fast 10 days give the photo for the head off. And then once

00:45:36--> 00:46:13

you've given the data, you can then go and do the better thing in the eyes of Allah subhana wa Tada. So simple. I did that. I the narrative, why not even Hatton. He said that yellow Sula, we're a people who hunt or I'm a person who hunts and we hunt with the men at all, we hunt with them at all, what doesn't matter at all. I don't know if there's an English equivalent to it, I looked this up in the definitions of the classical dictionary, mean at all, is a hunting weapon, which seems to be something like a throwing object, one side of which is sharp, and the other side is dull.

00:46:14--> 00:46:53

And when you throw it, you don't know what's going to hit the animal, either the sharp side to cut it, or the dull side to hit it. Okay, this is what it appears to be. Is it a type of axe, maybe something like this, okay, could be a type of axe that is just being flung at the animal. So he said, I hunt with the men at all, is it allowed or not. So the prophets are seldom said, Whatever is hit by its sharp edge or sword, you may eat it. But whatever was killed by the blunt side than it is how

00:46:54--> 00:47:20

meaning so the sharp one, the sharp thing hits is going to cause blood. And when the blunt side hits is going to be trauma, it's just going to be a hit pain like this, that's not going to be so whatever is cutting or slicing. In the hunt that is allowed. And whatever is bluntly forcing death on the animal. That is how I'm and this is something that is well known, it's something all of them have, I pretty much apply

00:47:21--> 00:47:57

that when it comes to hunting an animal, the Sharia gives a concession. That concession is you don't have to slaughter via cutting its neck, you may cause the blood to flow from any other organ. But as long as the blood is flowing, the blood must flow for the animal to be considered halaal. This is only for animals that are hunted, not for domesticated animals in your possession. So cows and chickens and sheeps and goats and whatnot, it is wajib to do them.

00:47:59--> 00:48:14

You cannot slaughter a sheep by shooting it. This is how long and it is made that it is made that if it's in your control, now I'm not going to belong 50 class but if it's in your control, it is how long you cannot do it. But a deer,

00:48:15--> 00:49:08

a gazelle, any other animal that you're hunting, if you somehow pierce the animal in a place that is not the neck, and it's bleeding to death, and it dies, it is headed. Now if it doesn't die and you catch it still alive, you should try to do that as if you're going to be safe. But if you can't as long as we so here's the ID, whatever is cut by its sharp side, eat whatever dies by the bluntness. So if you catch an animal via the traps for example, I will do better this is how ramen it is filthy It is made that is inhumane if you kill an animal by blunt trauma by hitting it, it is how long okay and so this would be how long? Then he said I asked him about hunting with dogs and Falcons somehow

00:49:08--> 00:49:20

so it is an expert. He has hunting birds as well. Okay, Alabama's hunting Falcon is about the color and the buzz the buzz is the Falcon.

00:49:21--> 00:49:31

So, the profitsystem said, If you send your animal and you have mentioned the name of a law, then eat with a kurta, smaller ID for cool.

00:49:33--> 00:49:48

And he said, whatever it catches for you and does not eat, then you may eat of it. And whatever it catches for itself and it has eaten then you should not eat of it. Meaning what?

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

If you train the dog or the Falcon, to hunt for you, then it's not going to eat of the meat itself.

00:50:01--> 00:50:36

But if you find the animal eating of that meat that it has not done it for you, isn't it for itself. So then you cannot so by the way, that type of animal is not a trained and Allah says in the Quran well mylanta mineral joy to him will can livina to the moon remember Allah qumola you have to hunt with trained dogs, it's in the Quran. A lot of Muslims don't know this. It's in the Koran. A lot of Muslims are clueless. It is halal to hunt with dogs, and what the dog catches is handled for you by the text of the Quran. But there are two conditions in the Quran

00:50:37--> 00:50:49

trained and you mentioned the name of Allah. What is a trained dog this hadith defines the train dog. The train dog is the dog that does not hunt except for you.

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

And that's why the Hadees says if you find the dog eating don't eat because that's not a trained dog.

00:50:56--> 00:51:03

That's not a trained dog. Okay, then the Heidi says and if you find another dog with your dog

00:51:05--> 00:51:40

and you don't know which dog killed the animal, phyla cool, then do not eat for in NEMA the Curtis Malloy Allah kobika Welcome to semiological Bella, because you said the name of Allah over your dog when you sent it out. And you did not say the name of Allah on the other dog. Okay, now it been Tamia says a little bit of fifth let me inject my position here have been Tamia says this hadith is the most explicit evidence that the testes Mia saying Bismillah is wajib for the meat to be halal.

00:51:42--> 00:52:32

Because he linked the how wrongness of the meat over the desmi issue. Right? Because you said Bismillah over your dog, and you did not say Bismillah over the other dog. Okay. And when it comes to when it comes to hunting, the rules are lacks. And when it comes to domestic law, the rules are strict. Yet even in hunting, there is no laxity shown to what to the saying of destiny of Bismillah. So therefore, my position as you all know by now, that meat is only halal. When a law's name has been mentioned, even if it's in Hebrew, kosher is halal. That's why kosher is headed, because they mentioned the blessing of God before they sacrifice the animal. And if the name of Allah is not

00:52:32--> 00:53:12

mentioned, then the meat is held on this is my position. And I know the shaft fairies disagree and I have respect for the shaft very position, but I do not follow it because the evidences for it are very weak, my utmost respect to them. But these are hydrated potamia and others are very clear. The Hadith is so explicit in this regard, if you know that the name of Allah has not been mentioned, then it is how long to eat. It is Mater it is something that falletta could do not eat, because you said Bismillah over your animal, you did not say Bismillah over the other animal. So he linked to how long to the lack of Bismillah. And the same applies to the meat around us here. In fact, not the

00:53:12--> 00:53:49

same even more so in domesticated animals, and chicken and cow and beef and whatnot. We must therefore In my opinion, and this is the humbly and Hanafi and Maliki position and that is that you have to say Bismillah when you slaughter and the hadith of ID is one of the main evidences even when it comes to hunting, you have to say Bismillah when you release the arrow, when you shoot the gun, you say Bismillah when you release your dog, you say Bismillah then the meat is halal. If you another dog kills you didn't say Bismillah on that dog, then the meat is not valid. And that Hadith is added to it. So it's interesting to put over here.

00:53:50--> 00:54:29

The other hadith of it very simple one are the other items that I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say there is none amongst you except that he shall speak to his Lord directly without any interpreter between them. They said a no brainer Who told you man there's not going to be any interpreter. And he will look to his right hand side and he shall see nothing. And he will look to his front and he shall see nothing except what he has done. And he should look to his left and he shall see nothing except that what he has done. And so whoever amongst you is able to protect himself from jahannam even with half a date should do so. This additive it it's famous you hear it

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

and hold was all the time that on the Day of Judgment, there will come a time where you will be in front of a law I will be in front of a law there will be no one between us and Allah subhanho wa Taala and you will look everywhere for help and you will find nothing other than your deeds. So at that point in time the process is that you will want everything you have even if you have half a day to have given you will be happy you gave it so whoever is able to do that, let him do that. This is a beautiful and powerful additive ID ebonheart him

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

If it had been hacked him

00:55:03--> 00:55:05

that he said that oh messenger have a lot.

00:55:06--> 00:55:57

We are a group of people who hunt and sometimes we do not find a knife to cut the animal with. So can we use something else? So the Prophet sallallahu I said him said, a mirror dem mesh It was a small law he is a cause the blood to flow. However, whatever instrument you have, let the blood flow with whatever instrument you have, and mentioned the name of Allah over it. So this hadith is another Hadith that is used by the three metalhead to say that to to make an animal Hillel, two main conditions must be met. The first one is the blood has to flow. So even if you don't have an knife, in those days, they were people Mashallah they could do anything, they'll take a stone, and they'll

00:55:57--> 00:56:37

sharpen part of the stone. Imagine if you have a rabbit or something, okay, so small animal, you don't have a big knife for it, you can take a stone that has a sharp enough thing, and you use that stone to cause the blood to flow on the jugular vein. That is good enough, you whatever causes the blood to flow, and you mentioned the name of Allah on it. So these two conditions once again are mentioned in the hadith of and the hadith of God. The final Hadith that will do is the Hadith that mentions his conversion, I just wanted to tell you the smaller version directly from most of the Mohammed that had said that when I it said sorry, it said, When I heard of the Prophet sallallahu, I

00:56:37--> 00:57:24

said, I was coming out, I hated him a severe hating. And I left until I went to one Land of the law, one area of the land of the Romans. And even I entered upon a place that himself I visited the Caesar himself. But I began to hate my status in that land. More than I hated the coming of Mohammed to my land. In other words, his place in Rome is placed in in the Roman Empires. And I began to say to myself, What if I came to this man and spoke to him, meaning Warhammer Sasa? If he's a liar, he's not going to harm me. And if he's telling the truth, then I'll learn something. So I came to him. And the people began to say, are the Manhattan Manhattan and I entered upon the Prophet sallallahu

00:57:24--> 00:58:10

idea he was setting them. Now this is a summarized version. I gave you a longer version, obviously. And he said to me, yeah, it is slim to slim. The same thing that I said three times. It said Yasuda, and the other Dean, I already have a religion. So the prophets have said, and I will be Dini kaminska. I know your religion better than you. And it says enter and then we'll be Dini meanie, you know my religion better than me. And the profitsystem said, Nam Lester Minar, Roku sia orange you from the Orthodox lesson, Roku sia and yet you eat one fourth of your people's money? I said Yes, I do. He said, this is not allowed in your religion. It said as soon as he said this for the World War

00:58:10--> 00:58:47

Two, the who I humble myself in front of him. And then he went on to say, I know why you're not entering Islam. Because the weaker people are following us who don't have any power. And then he mentioned the three things I just want to move on here very quickly. So the point being this is the the the story of Id have been hacked him. I know, time is up. But the rest of the other story is so small, and I think is a very interesting story as well. 10 minutes, and we're done. And the story of this hobby is very similar to ID from their backgrounds. Both of these are Christian Arabs, and they're both chieftains of their people. And I thought I'm just gonna combine the two stories. And

00:58:47--> 00:59:29

this, this Sahabi has no ID so we don't have any of these dimension. But his story is beautiful. And I love his story. And I mentioned it briefly in this era. Now I mentioned it a little bit longer. And that is through mama even without to mama even without, so I even had them as from the tribal fight, which is in the land of Hatton right next to her is the land of your mama. Your mama these days is called nudged. And there's this reordered and whatnot. Okay, here it is a little bit north of that. So right next to the neighboring land is the land of yamamah. And the leader of that was also a Christian. And his name was to mama even without samama even with that, and so Mama was not

00:59:29--> 01:00:00

as famous as I didn't have them or anything like that. So we don't know much about him. But what is known about film Mama was that he was highly beloved to his own people from the tribe of the yamamah, the the tribe of yamamah. And he was a person who was renowned in Arabia for his handsomeness. He was tall, broad shoulders, he would dress in the whitest of garments, he would act like a king. He would walk like a king he would dress like a king. He acted very regally very royally. And he was

01:00:00--> 01:00:34

Beloved to his people, in the beginning of the sixth year of the hedgerow the Prophet system sent an expedition towards the north, and they brought back some prisoners of war. And the Prophet system looked at them and he had never seen the mama before. And he said to his own Sahaba, he said, Have you not recognized your prisoner? They said, who he said, this is through Ma'am, even without the leader of his people, the process and recognize them because Allah told him because you believe he recognized him otherwise. So his own people had not told the Sahaba who through Mama was they thought we can keep it on the on the deal on the given other, nobody's gonna know who he is. But the

01:00:34--> 01:00:44

prophet system recognized through Mama, this is Mama, you caught the big guy. So it was an unexpected boost. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

01:00:45--> 01:01:29

as you know, Allah, He treats him with utmost kindness, and give him of your best food. And he commanded that his own food be given to the mama. And he commanded that his own sheep camel be milked to give the milk to so Mama. Now again, the camel is not going to be as if you know that milk is any differently other milks, but it is an honor for to mama, that the process of is publicly saying, My camel shall be given, you know, to him, my food that you're preparing, you give it to su Mama, and he ordered that the mother be taken away from the other prisoners and be in the, in the in the message of the process of as a prisoner. So he was tied to one of the the, the, the pillars. And

01:01:29--> 01:02:04

to this day, there is a pillar in the roll though they say that's the pillar of mama where he was tight. So he was tied in the road for three days, three days and three nights. He lived in the masjid fed there, you know, taking care of their whatever needs to be done. But he is living basically in the masjid. And every day the Prophet says some of the first thing in the morning after Frederick he would pass by to mama. And he would say yes to mama, what do you have to say? What do you have to say? And so mama would always say the same thing for three days in a row. Yeah, Mohammed in duck to talk to them. If you're going to kill me, you're going to kill somebody whose blood is

01:02:04--> 01:02:18

heavy. I'm not an average person. You're gonna kill me. My blood is heavy. Talk to them. I'm a king. I'm a leader. And if you want to money, you're asking somebody who can give.

01:02:20--> 01:02:59

And if you forgive, when tactful. If you forgive, then you're gonna forgive either shock if somebody will show you what is being generous. And so Pamela even look at his words, like he's speaking like a king. He's not he's looking at death in the eye is like you're gonna kill me, you're gonna kill somebody who has blood. And if you want money, I'll give you what you want. And if you forgive, you forgive somebody who will show thankfulness and Subhanallah what a what a sensible, calm, dignified, man, three options, I give them to you. You will kill me, what do we do? I can't do anything. If you want this, you want that. So but he but of course the process is not interested in any of these

01:02:59--> 01:03:47

three, he wants Islam. And tomorrow is not giving him that. So a second day, same question, same response. Third day, same question, same response. Now pause here. Up until this point, this is the sixth year of the Hydra. There has not been any war between samama and the Muslims. So it's not as if the Prophet system has a reason to keep him or whatnot. Right now Islam is expanding. This is the time of expansion. And so he wants to entice him to embrace Islam. The mom was not taking the bait. So on the third day, the prophet system said, let him go free up political house, no conditions, no nothing, let him go free. So through Mama, the head he says as a Muslim, immediately went to the

01:03:48--> 01:04:35

closest garden there was there was shelter, and he took a hostel and bath and he returned straight to the message. And in front of so they thought he had left in front of everybody. He says a shadow Allah, Allah illallah wa shadow naka de Rasulullah. And then he said that famous phrase, which is why the story of tomorrow was one of my favorite stories. He said Yara Sula law is changed from Mohammed yesterday, huh? You're a pseudo law. You were the most despised person to me. And your face was the most hated face to me. And your religion was the worst religion to me. But today, your face is the most beloved to me. And you are the most beloved person to me. And your religion is now my

01:04:35--> 01:04:59

religion. SubhanAllah just immediately, without one word of that word, but what happened in three days? What did the mama See? The Muslims saw it was this was that one. I just needs to see Islam as all he needed to do then, and so of course, the the Sahaba were happy. There's the process of god bless him and whatnot. Then he said Yasuda law you're

01:05:00--> 01:05:16

Troops caught me when I was intending to do omura This is why I didn't have my armed guard I didn't have it was a small entourage. It's a complete surprise. Your troops caught me. You know your cavalry caught me when I intended to do omura what do you think I should do now?

01:05:17--> 01:05:58

So the profitsystem said, Go and do a camera. Go, we're not stopping you. Now, this is I just used this incident two months ago here in this Masjid, when we talked about the issue of visiting Philistine under blockade. This is one of those evidences that's very clear. So mama is not from Medina. And the mccanns had forbidden the Medina ins the inside and the kurush. From the Muslims inquiries from coming. They hadn't forbidden any Muslim from up north. Up north, it was allowed for them to come to Makkah. So mama is neutral politically right now. Right? He is basically an American passport as a Muslim going to Israel and Palestine basically, right. He has the political luxury to

01:05:58--> 01:06:48

enter. He's not that. So he's asking rasulillah says, Can I go and the province and say go to Morocco, I'm not stopping to go. And so through Obama, goes for Amara. And he entered Makkah again. He's the king of his people. He's the chieftain of his people. And he started saying the tel BIA for the first time in history. So this is a trick question not a trick acquit a trivia question. Who was the first Sahabi to say that lb out loud in Makkah it is to mama even without Okay the first happy to say that lb out loud in Makkah is to mama even without what before the facts right two and a half years went through mama enters and he's saying the tell via and he's saying that Elvia. The mccanns

01:06:48--> 01:07:11

surrounded him. Also Botha attractor de Naka, have you become a gun? Saba is what they would say have you become a Muslim? what not. And he goes, I have chosen the best religion on earth is proud of what he's done. But the orange became so incensed some of the younger amongst them manhandled him, they pulled them off of his camel, they surrounded the the people there, and one person even drew his sword to kill him.

01:07:13--> 01:08:01

So So Mama, didn't think this would happen. But it happened riffraff mob mentality, right, until finally some of the seniors of the array said, leave him Have you lost your minds if you kill him, we're gonna be in serious war, let him go back to his people. So the wiser minds prevailed. But samama after he finished his low off and Roma, before he left, he said in his anger, while la he I will not allow a single grain of barley to come to you, until the profitsystem himself sends me a letter saying that I can send you something. Why? Because through mama is in the mama, and the mama is where all the caravans are coming up and down from and he can block the caravans from doing

01:08:01--> 01:08:45

anything, even if it's going to be an economic loss to him, is going to be an actual loss to the crash. And so the first thing that he did when he got back to his land of nudged he prevented all the caravans, he purchased all the goods, and he hoarded them himself sent the caravans back up north, and the people of Makkah suffered one of the most severe, it wasn't even a drought. It was a lack of food, until people began to starve to death. Because no barley is coming, all of their grain would come from up north, and through mama has shut off the door from any caravan coming with food to the people of Makkah, so much so that they wrote a letter to the Prophet solo, as I mentioned,

01:08:45--> 01:09:24

this is my syrup. They wrote a letter to the prophets of Allah, Allah, He will send them and they said, You are a man who commands people to be good to his relatives. How can you be commanding this one your own relatives are starving, because we don't have any food. So they're accusing the process of basically show us some mercy or we are relatives, right? Please go tell mama to allow food to come down. So the profitsystem wrote a letter to her mama, that you may send the food, let the caravans go to the people of Mecca. And that was when the mama opened the door. And that's all that we know about. So mama again, he participated in the Battle of Mota and he died in the early

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

Caliphate of Roma. That's all we know. But what an amazing story about the mom even without, and one of the best points and with this, we conclude a shout out there are no Heidi thymoma doesn't have any ID. And we have no information about him other than the story of his conversion, because he's not in Makkah. He's not in Medina. He's a chieftain who was a prisoner of war. Then he goes back to his tribe. It is said he participated in 101. But that's it after that. Then he passes away in early buck or earlier, sorry, late Abubakar earlier on, we're one of the two. But the one thing that we benefit from this and is very important, is the tsunami of economic boycotts.

01:10:01--> 01:10:02

BDS

01:10:03--> 01:10:46

BDS movements you know guys BDS what it is, we can say that it is something the tactic is something that we can find from the Sunnah itself, economic boycotting through mama did it. And the profitsystem did not mind until he had himself say hello, so could give it to them. In other words, it's a tactic that is allowed to be used when it needs to be used. And if it's something, you don't want to use it, you don't have to use it as well. But the overall concept of economically boycott samama, at that time, was not able to physically attack. The politics didn't allow it to happen. He couldn't do that. But there was another tactic that he could do. And that tactic was political or

01:10:46--> 01:11:09

sorry, economic pressure. And he did that economic pressure. And it worked to a certain extent Why? Because by negotiating the Profit System then gained an upper hand over the harsh the Profit System negotiating for the kurush it gives him an upper hand and it was only then a matter of time before the conquest of Makkah takes place. So all of this is an interesting

01:11:11--> 01:11:18

tactic that we can say it is something that can be allowed from the Syrah and Allah subhana wa tada knows best.
