Episode Notes

In this video, Shaykh Yasir Qadhi elaborates in vivid detail, the life and times of Salman Al Farsi RA and his role in the future of Islam.

Continuing from where he left off, when Salman RA reaches Quba, he begins to get very excited about meeting Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and begins his quest to search for the three signs that shall help him identify the Messenger of Allah ﷺ – he does not accept Sadaqah, he accepts Hadiyah and there is a seal that signifies him being Rasoolullah ﷺ.

We now gather valid and essential information about the incidents that transpired en route his way to meeting the Prophet ﷺ. This is a majestic and surreal moment for Salman RA and words do not do justice to illustrate his inner emotions and feelings on witnessing this impossible event.

Salman RA couldn’t participate in the battle of Badr and Uhud because he was bound by the laws of slavery.Then he applied the laws of Mukatibah that were suggested to him by the Prophet ﷺ. But his owner turned out be stingy and set a huge amount for his freedom – 300 date palms should be planted and 40 uqiyah of silver should be given.

The Prophet ﷺ heard of this and took it upon himself to plant the date palm seeds one after the other and by the miracle of Allah bestowed in the hands of the Prophet ﷺ, all the trees were healthy and bore fruit.

Salman Al Farsi RA true test of his knowledge and experiences of war came during the Battle of khandaq – explicit details have been shared and is worth a listen.a famous Hadith was narrated during this battle which was when the Muhajirun and the Ansars were calling onto Salman RA to join their side of the army which was made into groups to commence the digging of the trench.Rasoolullah ﷺ saw this and announced, “Salman minna Ahlul Bait!” which means that Salman is from Ahlul Bait! What a better honour than this to have been bestowed upon Salman!

Salman RA died of khilafat of Uthman RA and there are around 30 Hadith narrated by him.

When Salman Al Farsi RA was dying on his deathbed, he said to Sa’d Ibn Waqqas RA,” Do not cry in grief or eagerness for this life, but because Allah’s Messenger ﷺ has recommended that one should only collect what is sufficient as provision for a traveller. However, we did not implement his order.

For many interesting tidbits as these, please do listen intently to the video and me mesmerised by the stature of Salman Al Farsi RA in Islam.

00:00:08--> 00:00:12

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah he was so happy he was.

00:00:13--> 00:00:27

So inshallah tada Today we are finishing up Sandman allphotossee. And in fact I could have had one more call but I thought that there's no point stretching it that much. So shout out to Allah will finish. Sandman and fantasy are the Allahu Allahu today.

00:00:28--> 00:00:38

If I remember correctly, we had gotten to him entering Medina correct. That's where he finished right where to enter a Medina and he was staying with or he was a slave of

00:00:39--> 00:01:20

the some of the tribes over there. And he said that as soon as he saw Medina, he was certain that this was the land described to him. So again, I had mentioned that the last teacher that he had had mentioned specific characteristics when he saw it, he knew that this was the land and this shows his personal one. This shows his good and positive attitude towards Allah subhana wa tada even though he wasn't a Muslim, but he was certain that Allah would guide him he was certain that he would find the truth. So he said, I started working for him in the date in the date palm in the garden, all the while the Prophet system had been sent, and he had come to Medina, but his matter was not known to

00:01:20--> 00:02:04

me. I didn't know he had arrived. I had no idea because obviously I'm a slave. And one day, one of my Masters cousins visited my master while I was in the tree above, so he was in the tree is doing the, you know, whatever needs to be done to take care of the dates to harvest them. And the master and his cousin are having a conversation at the bottom of the tree. And as is typical with slave owners, they're ignoring the slave ignoring Sandman completely. And his cousin said, may Allah curse the bunny tailor. And the bunny tailor is the name they would give to the arrows May Allah curse the bunny tailor. They are all clamoring and crazy over a man in Cobra from Mecca, who has just arrived

00:02:04--> 00:02:46

now. So Selman has heard that the man who has claiming to be a prophet has arrived. Now, cinnamon doesn't say this, but it's understood that he had already heard of the Prophet says on his message, he had heard tidbits that for the last 13 years, or however many years, we don't know how many years he was in Medina, in all likelihood, he didn't arrive at the beginning of the Dawa. In all likelihood, he had probably come maybe 234 years before the hedgerow. So in those years, he has heard of the new message, he has heard that there is a man claiming to be a prophet. And now he has heard that the Prophet has arrived in Medina. So he said, as soon as I heard that, I started shaking

00:02:46--> 00:03:29

so much in the tree, I started shivering, I started, like, so excited that I thought I might fall down from the tree onto my master and his cousin. Now you can imagine at least 30 years have gone by, since he's hearing and waiting. So his whole life he has been waiting for this, how many teachers and masters his slavery, all of this has gone. Now he hears the man is finally in town. So he rushes down. And he addresses his masters cousin directly, which is not allowed in the slave world. He's acting like a normal human being, and that's not allowed in the slave world. And he addresses the Masters cousin directly. And he said, What is the news? Can you tell me like, what

00:03:29--> 00:04:09

what have you just heard? And my master smacked me harshly, and said, What business is this of yours Get away from here? Like because Simon was assuming he's a normal human being, but he's now a slave. And again, he has not been raised like a slave. This now shows you again, he is demonstrating he is not a slave. Right? He has his own dignity, his own freedom, and he's treating him like a human being and the Masters maximun says Get away from here. And so he went back to his work extremely excited. And he said, When the night fell, I gathered whatever I had, and I went to visit him in Oba. Now this shows

00:04:11--> 00:04:52

that even pre Islam, the slavery of Arabia was not the slavery of America and I have tried to explain to many times that American slavery was really the most brutal manifestation of slavery in human history, not to justify previous slavery, but merely to contextualize one of the reasons why, for the first time in human history, slavery was eradicated the first and only time really is 200 years ago, 150 years ago, was because of the brutality of American slavery. It really was inhumane. Previous versions were definitely not good. But there's they treat at least some dignity. We see this sad man could gather some food, he could go walk himself. He is somewhat a free person in the

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

sense he's not free, but I'm saying he has a life of his own outside of his work hours and he has some money. He has he has some

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

Food of his own. It's not the way we understand the slavery as took place over here. So salmaan said one night fell. I gathered whatever I had. And I visited him and he was still in pullback. So Pamela, we're talking about the first two days of the process of arrival. This is how excited Selman is he hasn't even come to Medina yet. He's still in Cuba. And I went and visited him in Oba. And I said, that I went to a prophet. So somebody said to him, and this is the first meeting. So he says, I have heard that you are a stranger in these lands, you are a traveler, who doesn't own anything. And you have your group with you. And I had saved some sadhaka.

00:05:45--> 00:06:35

And I feel that you are the most deserving of this sadhaka. So I placed the dates in front of him. And he said to the people around him, eat, but he did not eat himself. So salmaan is monitoring. Okay, eat, but he did not eat himself. So salmaan said, I said to myself, How the hell Oh, this is the first sign. This is the first sign. And this sign has been tested by multiple people. And the beauty here, this sign of South Africa, and the sign of the Seal of the Prophets. It was never used by the pagans to test the Prophet. So this is not a sign of the pagans. This is a sign of the keytab. This is a sign of the hood and then Asara who had still remnants from their profits, and it

00:06:35--> 00:07:18

is not a common sign that was done by the Corporation. So this is the first one. And of course the fact that the process of does not eat soda is something motor, till he is not allowed to take sada up he forbade it upon himself and upon his family as well. And he said that a sadhaka is that he Luna will elevate is not allowed for us or for the all of the little bait it is not allowed for any of the family of the process. And this is something all odema and my dad have agreed to all schools of Islam agree to sadhaka and zeca is not allowed for the lol bait you're not allowed to give sadaqa and if you're added bait, you are cannot receive sadhaka and sadaqa implies both charity and Zakat,

00:07:18--> 00:08:07

you may give gifts you may not give sadaqa to the little bit. So the process of said sorry, he did not eat of the sadhaka. Then some days went by and the process of move to Medina. And Sandman said I managed to gather some more things. Once again, he has his own property, I managed to gather some more food. And I visited him now in Medina. So now a week or two, whatever has gone by the processor is in now Medina. And Selman went to him, and said that I noticed you did not eat my previous charity. So this is a hydeia for you. So he said, I noticed last time you didn't eat the soda. So this is a hadiah that I want to honor you with. So he wants to be very clear. Last time, he said, I

00:08:07--> 00:08:52

made some sadaqa to give to people and I find you guys are the most needy to give to. Now he's very clear, I have an idea. I want to make a crumb, I want to honor you with hadiya. So he's being very, very clear here. And so the profits are some eight and his companions eight as well. So Solomon said, had he afonya This is the second one, then how is he going to look at the third and every single time in the Sierra This is occurred at least three to five times that somebody wants to see the the seal the heart of a new board, right whatever and they're trying to figure out how can we do that, because the seal is covered. It is in between the two shoulder blades and I have said many

00:08:52--> 00:08:59

times the seal of the prophet SAW Selim, it seems to be just a tuft of hair that is of a

00:09:00--> 00:09:42

color that is not black. It's maybe greenish or whatnot or different colors. It's just a hair that is growing the size of a pigeons egg and a pigeons egg is very small. It's like one fourth the size of a regular chickens egg that we used to one fourth or one third the size, and it is semi circular or oval in shape. And it is in between the shoulder blades of the Prophet solo seller. And it's something that is not typical in men that you have just a small bit of hair between the shoulder blades. And it was meant as a sign from Risa and Moosa to their followers, that he shall have that seal between the shoulder blades. Okay, that's a sign that was given, and it was almost forgotten by

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

majority of Christians and Jews, except for small remnants like Selman, and like the 10 newly, and like a few more that we have mentioned in our theater class, just a few people have this and, to the best of my knowledge, this sign does not exist today in the classical story.

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

of Jews and Christians, which means that it has been disappeared and gotten rid of along with many of the other books that have gotten rid of in the past. So salmaan is now looking for the third sign. And he's one is his opportunity said one day, there was a janazah in book here, and the Prophet system and the Sahaba were all there and I was there as well. And he was wearing two garments, one at the waist, and one on his upper body basically the head on and again, realize the ROM was the garment of the poor, it was the default garment. And it still is the default garment to the poor in many places in the world. Look at some of the tribes of Africa, look at some of the

00:10:38--> 00:11:21

folklore of India to this day. That is what they were. So when we were the haraam don't think this was a special gear that the Sahaba wore when they went for Hajj. No, this is the standard cloth of the poor, when you have nothing, you have to clots and you cover yourself with it, that is what the hold on is you go down to the very lowest of what anybody would wear. And so the process of was wearing that is out and Rita is called is out as a lower garment. re that is the upper garment. And so Salomon said, I began to walk behind him wherever he went, trying to see if the garment would ever go down. Because the upper garment you just put it around you and they don't have you know t

00:11:21--> 00:11:58

shirts that we have, they don't have just simply wearing an upper garment waiting to see if it would slip so that I could see the hotton. And he is not the only so happy to do this, as I said multiple times, and Subhanallah every single time the process of notices that somebody is walking behind, right? So it is as if any? And of course we don't have any problem saying this might be supernatural as well. Because the process of said Hadeeth is in Bahati that I can see behind me just like I see in front of me because it isn't it that I can see behind me just like I see what's in front of me, which could mean that I know what is behind me just like you know what is render me this one of the

00:11:58--> 00:12:01

blessings of a prophet that he is not.

00:12:02--> 00:12:43

He cannot be surprised in this manner that he can see what is happening in front and behind. In any case, when he sees salmaan always coming behind him. At that point in time he did what he always does a lot who it said them and that is he just lowered it right there. He figures out this is going on. So he lowers it for Selma that he needs, he sees what is going on. So he lowers the reader and sell man said I saw the hot em and I shouted out of Hello, can you imagine? Yeah, they were like these words don't do justice. Can you imagine the emotions of Sandman? Can you imagine after all these years, and then he sees that hot term? And he knows this is the one my teacher told me about

00:12:43--> 00:13:21

I've been waiting for the religion of the hanifa the religion of Allah azza wa jal, and he rushed towards the prophets of the law, why don't you send them and kiss him and hug him? And the Prophet says, Adam said, What is your story because he knows, the only person that will know about the hotton is somebody who has the remnants of the alligator. So he knows there's a story beyond what the chorus might have beyond what the pagans might have. And when I told him the story to add job, he was amazed by it. And he asked me to repeat it to the Sahaba which means like multiple times, that amount would repeat it to the Sahaba and this is not the only time to Nima daddy as well when

00:13:21--> 00:13:56

he converted, he has a story and the process have said to me, him Go tell the Sahaba. So again, this is not a problem at all. So I use this to say that, you know, when converts, they get irritated, what is your conversion story, they get irritated. I say you know what, you're not the first you're not going to be the last okay? Even the Sahaba they let love to hear conversion stories, like what is said man's conversion story. What is how did you get this, you know, what not, it's a boost of Eman. And we as people born into the faith, we know this boost. That's why we love to hear convert stories because it it makes us feel that Alhamdulillah good and whatnot. And there's nothing wrong

00:13:56--> 00:14:42

with that it is a part of Islam. And here is salmaan telling his story as well. So Sandman says, Then I embraced Islam, but my slavery prevented me from doing much. And I could not attend budder or offered some panel. And it's a model of this command has traveled so far and become a slave. And now he is trapped. He can do anything. His situation is beyond what can be done. And because of his slavery, so he's working long hours, he's tired, but the end of the day can only do so much so he could not and of course as a slave, he's not allowed to go fight at bothered and offroad and so he skips but didn't hurt because he has a legitimate excuse. Then one day I visited the pasillo set him

00:14:42--> 00:14:58

and he said to me, got to Neff sec. And macatawa is again a very interesting concept that just really shows how different pre Islamic and Islamic slavery was from modern Western or the western connotation

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

MacArthur river is something that pre Islam allowed. And Islam made wajib.

00:15:08--> 00:15:45

Allah says in the Quran, that work at the boom in Iam to feed him that if your slaves come to you, and demand to be freed for a price, then negotiate with them, if you find good in them, this is now wajib. And what is mokaba mokaba is that the slave comes and says, I want to be free, set my price. So the master sets a reasonable price, the price of the market. And then according to the books of fic, listen to this, the master must give a reasonable amount of time for the slave to go earn.

00:15:46--> 00:16:29

And to then build up that amount of money, the price has to be reasonable. And then the hours that he works has to be reasonable, then he will earn his freedom and then purchase himself from the master. This is called macatawa. Now can you imagine this happening in 1850? You know, Alabama or Tennessee? I mean, there's a whole different world from pre Islamic and Islam came in made laws, pre Islamic was around. But the master could say no. And in Islam, you're not allowed to say no. In Islam. It's in the Koran that in nltp Hello, this caller said if you find them to be good, upright people, if you're worried they're gonna go raping, pillaging, plundering, but if overall, the rule

00:16:29--> 00:17:13

is if the slave comes in is a righteous person. And by the way, righteousness is guaranteed with Islam. And so converting to Islam is another incentive. See all of this, I mentioned this many times that it was a way to basically get people into an Islamic Society, have them see the faith and then convert to the feet. And that's the difference there. So the President said go to your master and negotiate your freedom, set a price. So salmaan went to his master, and the master was stingy. And he set a very high price. Not impossible, because you don't do that. But a very high price, what was the high price, he said, You must plant 300

00:17:15--> 00:17:56

date palm trees until they are of growing height until they until I know that is going to grow. And that's like a year or two. Okay? Because dates, date palms, they will give fruit after maybe five years. So after the first two, three years is going to be good enough to know okay, you have done the job. So plant 300 of them. So you have to go and get the seeds from my crop and plant another 300 to have a large garden. And on top of that, I want 40 grams of silver 40 oltenia more than grams and OPI is their unit. Okay. 40 Oakley of silver. Now,

00:17:57--> 00:18:40

we don't know the prices of I should say I don't know the prices of slaves. But from what I understand. This is an astronomical rate like from what I understand from my reading of the Sierra and whatnot, that some slaves might even have been purchased only for 40 a year. And now he is saying I want 40 Olia plus 300 dates and 300 days is labor. Okay, it's not a lot of money in the sense that he will get the fruit the pits from the land, but how much manual labor? And how long is it going to take and whatnot. So 300 date palms, and 40 Oakley of silver, which is a lot of manpower. And a good quantity of money. That's an average price for a slave would be 40 opia.

00:18:40--> 00:19:28

According to some reports, bilad was free for 40 opia as well. So it's like it's something that is standard over there. Now, he went back to the process that I'm setting man has no silver and 44 I mean, 300 day pause, I mean, he's gonna have to spend years collecting the appropriate seeds, planting them waiting for them to you know, come forward, he's gonna have to wait years. So when he went back to the process of the law while he was selling them, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam made a public announcement and said, Oh, people, Everyone, come and help your brother settled man. So people began donating not seeds, but seedlings. Okay, seedlings and seedlings are basically what

00:19:28--> 00:19:59

they will do. And we still do this for when to plant something. Those of us who are into these, the you know, having a backyard and whatnot. I mean, sometimes you plant seeds, but more realistic and better. You go to the, you know, shops and you purchase the sapling. Okay, you purchase the small plant, and that saves you the time. Right. And that is helpful for you. And so what the course will do, in fact, with all the people who plan dates will do is that they'd have a special area where they would cultivate

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

The saplings, then when the saplings are and that's more protected, just like the greenhouse type that we have now, then when that's kind of big enough then they would go to the main yard or the main garden and then planted over there, right? So the Profit System said Oh, people who have gardens essentially give some of your saplings to sell man. So sell man said people began pouring in, some gave 30 some gave 20 some gave 15 some gave 10 some gave less than this, each one in accordance with his means.

00:20:29--> 00:20:55

Until I had 300. So Mashallah the whole Medina community came to free sell man and the Prophet sallallahu I said him said to sell man, so this must take taken a few days. He then said to sell man, go and dig 300 holes, but do not put them in yourself. When you have finished the 300 call me.

00:20:57--> 00:21:44

So sad man said my brother's helped me to dig 300. So now all the Sahaba come together. And they help said man to dig 300 holes, okay in his masters garden. And then they call the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and Subhana Allah, this is one of the beautiful stories, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam put every one of those 300 with his own hands, and he covered up and he made to afford 300. Now, I was trying to figure out how long that would take. But I can't I'm not an expert in agriculture. But let us just assume that for sure it took up the better part of a day. Because for each one, he would have to go put it in, cover it up, you know, and then keep on going. And it's

00:21:44--> 00:22:23

it is manual labor, even though it's not heavy, but it is back breaking up and down and up and down and up and down. And anybody who's worked in a garden, and I'm definitely not one of them. So don't worry about that. Anybody who's worked in the garden knows how back breaking it is to take care of these small things, right? And our Profit System did every one of them with his own hands. panela 300 of them. I mean, I cannot imagine to be less than four or five hours, but I'm just assuming you ended the whole day would have gone. And because he needs it to be himself, the Sahaba can only they said one realize goes that they would hand him. So there's a line and there's like an assembly line.

00:22:23--> 00:23:11

But the person who's doing it is the professor sort of what an honor for Selma, isn't it right? What an honor for salmaan allphotossee to have the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, plant all 300 on his own, and Selma and said that, I swear by Allah, not a single one of those died, every one of them because not every sapling will flourish, right? Sometimes the sapling will, you know, go down not to single one of them died. But then the dead hums remained. So the 300 is there, and they all grew. So that issue is done, then that there has remained. And one day, he said that the Profit System which was with the Sahaba, and the Sahabi, came and donated a nugget of gold that he had

00:23:11--> 00:23:54

found. He had discovered some gold and some mind somewhere, whatever. Then, of course, in those days, just like the rest of the world, Arabia did have gold here and there, somebody might have discovered something, he gave a small amount of gold Asada to the Prophet system to do whatever he wanted to do with it. And so said, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, anal fallacy, where is the Persian guy, identify to see. And so in one version, he said, ain't alpha cL miskeen? Where's the poor Persian guy, and miskeen here means he needs you know that this was one thing his macatawa done. And so they went and called semi because Emma's, not a free man, he cannot just sit in the

00:23:54--> 00:24:29

huddle and pay attention and take notes. He's a slave. And that's why again, Sandman is not mentioned a lot in the series, because he doesn't have the time, you know, to come and do anything until the fifth year of the hedgerow. When this takes place. The first five years, of course, mcca he's not on the scene. The first five years, he's busy. So literally, he's just mentioned in two, three, as we know, that's all he has in the Sierra, but suhaila What an amazing story, even that little that we have. And so when that small amount of gold came, said, Man came to the process of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he gave him this gold and he said, go and pay your master.

00:24:30--> 00:24:48

Now, this amount of gold would not have been enough for 40 years of silver. It's a very trivial amount, you know, probably would have been less than half. So Selman said Dr. rasulillah, how will this pay my debt? How will this pay 40? Will you

00:24:49--> 00:24:50

listen to what the process did?

00:24:51--> 00:24:56

Inside says he took the gold and he put it on his tongue

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

and he rolled it around.

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

Then he gave it back to Sandman and said, Go, it shall be enough.

00:25:06--> 00:25:53

Go, it shall be enough. So pantaloni me literally, this is the prophecies of wanting to free Selma over and over again. And so Sandman said, I want to weigh it. And we're lucky it weighed out to 40. Okay, yeah, yeah. And however, the reason worked it when he got his 40 oltenia, he got the silver quantity. And he made himself basically, the only he paid off his master. And he became a free man. After that, then he said, and that is why I was able to witness hunt duck, and the other battles. I missed by that and oh, hood. But this happened right before hand up, and therefore is able to witness hand up and the rest of the battles. And this is the end of his story, the first person that

00:25:53--> 00:26:26

I'm going to that I'm going to move on, obviously, but I said in the last lesson, that we're doing some man's story from a very long Hadith. And what's the name of Mohammed? It's five, six pages. This is that story that I've just finished it or translate all of it. And I've commented on it. That's the whole story. Now, this is the version and Muslim remember what I'm not going to read it when I get there, because it's, that's what I've done right now. I just want to tell you, there are other versions as well that have other details. In one version, it says that Sandman went from 12 different teachers, it just says he went to 12 different teachers, whereas the one I said at five,

00:26:26--> 00:27:02

so it's not surprising. Maybe he had more as well. In another version. The last teacher is a teacher from Jerusalem. baytril mock This was also makes a lot of sense then. Okay, so the last teacher who tells him about the Prophet who's going to come, he is from beta mock this whereas in this version, he is from Cambodia. either case, I'm moody actually. It's not too far from beta mock the so it could be the same and it could be something similar allows origin knows best. So the point being that, that is the version that is mentioned in was 30 member Hammond. Now, Sandman therefore becomes free before the Battle of hunda.

00:27:04--> 00:27:48

And of course it is in the Battle of hon duck where Sandman plays the most decisive role that he plays in the Sierra, what He is known for. We all know the story, and that is that when the army was announced, the Azov was announced and 10,000 people are coming. And the profitsystem calls the Sahaba What shall we do? And somebody says, Let's go out and fight them. Others say let us stay in the city. And people are a bit confused. And this is one Sandman says Yasuda law. We were a people in Persia, that when the armies attacked us, we would build 100. This was a tactic that we would use, we would build 100 duck and moat a trench that would basically delay and allow us to fortify

00:27:48--> 00:28:27

ourselves. And the Arabs had never done this tactic before. And so the Prophet system immediately accepted this strategy. And I have mentioned many times that it is very clear from Islam, from the Sierra, from the Prophet system from the Sunnah, that there is no problem. In fact, it is Islamic to benefit intellectually from other civilizations and cultures. This is a part of our religion. Unfortunately, some scholars are a little bit narrow, narrow minded in this and I've given lectures about this past incidents that have happened that demonstrate the closed mindedness of certain segments because there is a fear when you open the door to benefit from them intellectually, you

00:28:27--> 00:28:48

might be corrupted spiritually. And that is a legitimate fear. I'm not dismissing it. However, just because of that fear doesn't mean you remain closed minded and narrow minded. the prophecies of had no problem accepting knowledge from the the Romans and the Persians. And this is here he is accepting from Sandman and fantasy, a tactic that was not known to the Arabs. And

00:28:49--> 00:29:31

again, we went over this in the Battle of hunda. I'm just going to quickly summarize, remember that Medina, was naturally protected, because there were two lava planes on two sides, which cover around 60% of the city. So you cannot have horses marching. And on the back as well, there were certain mountains or there's also there as well, and you have the plains of word. And in the front, where they will be coming from a good portion is dense date pumps. So you can't have armies marching through is basically a natural protection. So you have a stretch that how long is that stretch, nobody knows, six miles or whatever, or some six, six kilometers, seven kilometers, there was a

00:29:31--> 00:29:59

stretch that would have been possible for an army to march in. And it was in that stretch that they then built the hand up and the hand up. Again, all we have is very vague estimates roughly where and where it began and where it went to. And what we learn from the books of Sierra is that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam assigned groups of people for every 40 cubits every 40 hand spans and in fact, he himself walked in

00:30:00--> 00:30:49

The entire way. And he demarcated, where the hung up would be dug. Okay, so he showed them, this is where it's going to be dug. And then groups began working nonstop to dig, they literally had two to three weeks of preparation time. And they had to dig a hole that was deep enough and long enough for a horse to not jump over. Okay, so the very least it would have been at least six, seven feet deep, and at least seven eight feet wide as well enough so that it's going to prevent immediate jumping over people are not going to be able to come with ease. So it is an actual trench that they had to dig. And it is mentioned that, as we said, the Sahaba were assigned each 10 were assigned 14 hand

00:30:49--> 00:31:05

spans to do and the Mahajan and installed immediately began dividing themselves up and start working on it now. Sandman is a free man. And for the first time the question arises, which side is salmaan going to be on?

00:31:06--> 00:31:50

Because the battles of budget and overhead have already taken place and in them, then Mahajan are one contingent the unsought or one condition within the uncertainty of the hazard edge and the most each one is its own, you know, contingent salmaan is neither purely muhajir from Makkah, nor purely unsavoury. He's kinda sorta the odd man out. So sell man when the people are being divided. Sandman is left standing, and he doesn't know where to go because each group is getting assigned. So the Maha Judo and say salmaan you're part of us come here. salmaan Mina? And the answer said, No, no, no. salmaan when they want him, okay, because he's mad, and he was here before you guys came. Right?

00:31:51--> 00:32:39

And so they began having not a fight fight, but like a, you know, team fight, right? Do you know how it goes right? The team player you want the team to come? The team fight like some I mean, I know salmaan, Mina, and SMR doesn't know where to go. And this then is one of the great honors of Solomon as well. One of the biggest honors of Sandman perhaps the biggest honor is that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam heard all of this commotion and he came outside and what did he say this is the famous Hadith salmaan min a little bit. Okay, he's neither this nor that is gotten the best upgrade, he is a Ll bait. So salmaan got an upgrade to be Ll bait salmaan mina lol bait and therefore salmaan

00:32:39--> 00:33:23

himself could not accept sadhaka to the end of his life, because he got that upgraded a little bit. Okay. So Selma then becomes a part of the debate and this is of the greatest honors of Sandman alpha c, and essentially, he is the only non blood relative non otoshi to be a little bit because all the brothers to them are either the wives or the, you know, son in law and whatnot and the grandchildren of the processors and man is the only non Arab and non Koshi the wives of the some of them are non Koshi. But non Arab and non karoshi are the men he is the only one to then be given the status of elbaite. And of course, at this time as well, a very interesting episode occurs. This is narrated in

00:33:23--> 00:34:05

Sahih Muslim and the details are found in other books as well, that as They're digging the trench, and they They're digging where the processor told them, they come across this massive granite structure, massive Boulder, and each time they tried to break the Boulder, they ended up breaking their own axe. So the boulder is right there in the line where the process of drew and they're not able to break the Boulder. So one of the Sahaba says salmaan go to the profitsystem and tell him about this boulder and asked what should we do. So Selma rushes to the profits of the library, Seneca says Yasuda law there is this big grand Knight or this structure, Boulder that neither are we

00:34:05--> 00:34:43

able to get rid of it, nor can we push it out. If you allow us We will go around. And if you want us to do something else, we will do it. But we hesitated to leave the line that you drew. And look at the the level of obedience of the Sahaba that you drew this line, we need your permission to simply go around it. So we're not going to go around it until you allow us or you give us some other alternative. So that's why basically I'm here. So the Profit System set to sell man Hand me your axe.

00:34:44--> 00:34:59

So the profit Solar System took sell man's axe and he went to the hunt duck and the Sahaba says we were all standing at the corner of the handle, and the Prophet himself jumped in into the trench and he lifted the axe.

00:35:00--> 00:35:52

He said Allahu Akbar, and it came down, and a light or a spark emanated that was brighter than any lamp that we had seen. And the rock, you know, it kind of shock or whatnot or crumbled, but not fully. Okay? And when they saw this, they all set a level up, but as well, then for a second time, Allahu Akbar, and a light came, that was like lightning. And they all said, Allahu Akbar. And then the third time inside says, a light came that enlightened, the whole city. In other words, the spark coming out, lightning is coming out, and that crumbled the entire Boulder, or rock. And when the profitsystem came out, he said, Did you see what I saw? Did you see this as well? They said, Yes, we

00:35:52--> 00:36:44

saw it as well. So he said, I hit it for the first time. And with that light, I saw the palaces of hospital in here, ah, and muda in. And these were cities of Iran, where, where huzzah, ro had his major palaces, like the white fangs of dogs. And gibreel told me that my oma would be victorious to that over those. Then the second time, I saw the palaces of the battle model, the Caucasians of Rome of Rome. And God told me that I would be victorious or my own, would be victorious over them. This is either in all likelihood, Damascus, and that region, or perhaps even as is the actual city of Rome, Allah knows best because that is also mentioned, it will be conquered towards the end of

00:36:44--> 00:37:27

times, but in all likelihood, this these are the palaces of the Roman rulers, because Caesar had palaces in Jerusalem. And when this the letter of the process and reached him, he was in his palace of Jerusalem. He had a summer home in Jerusalem, the Caesar, the famous Caesar heraclius, he had a palace in Jerusalem. So in all likelihood, this is the prediction of Jerusalem of beta democritus. And that region, then the third, I hit it, and I saw the palaces of Yemen. Yemen, as I said many times was another civilization down south. And God told me that my people would conquer this. So when the people heard this, they began shouting with Dec be enjoy. And once again, this is one of

00:37:27--> 00:38:12

those times, you have a reminiscence of early MK as well, when Beadle and hubub complained to the profits or some under the shade of the cab, and he said that, are you worried? Are you do you think this religion is going to basically be extinguished? For Allah He labeled ohana has a number of this religion will expand until riders go from one side of Yemen to the other, and they fear nothing, a lady will go with her sheep, and she will fear nothing other than wolves attacking her sheep. So when the Sahaba were being persecuted in Makkah, the process and gave the most glorious boast, which is going to be true, when the Sahaba are surrounded by the largest army Arabia has ever seen 10,000

00:38:12--> 00:38:20

men, the largest army is Arabia has ever seen. He gives these grandiose predictions that all come true.

00:38:21--> 00:38:56

There is no goal of attacking Rome right now. They're worried about the kurush. They're worried about the houses in a thief tribes, they're worried about the kingdom coming in. They're worried about the health of fan, the main tribe, the correlation between tribes are worried about the auto fan over 10,000. And here the process of selling them to worry. We've got the policies of Rome, the palaces of Persia, the palaces of Yemen, all going to be in the back, and Subhanallah within 10 years, all of them were within 10 years, and I keep on telling

00:38:57--> 00:39:36

us as Muslims will lie, there's no question in our minds, this is a miracle. And modern historians and academics are still scratching their heads. How could this have happened? To this day, we Muslims don't understand how magnificent the Byzantine Empire was for the Muslims to essentially destroy it. How glorious the assassin Empire was that it was wiped off by negotiating with Ohio between morning and evening, the whole sassanid Empire, Rome could not defeat Persia for 400 years. And a bunch of literally unprepared peoples. I don't want to use any more harsher adjectives because people take out of context, but you understand the Sahaba were the best of the best, but they were

00:39:36--> 00:40:00

not educated in this world. They didn't have the armors of this world their military training of this world. They did not have the civilization of this world. Yes, there were the best of the best, but they didn't have this dunya nobody could have thought that this group of people is going to take on the sassanid Empire with its might its grandeur, its majesty, and literally destroy it. Impossible is like in our time

00:40:00--> 00:40:36

To say that some tribe of Brazil, undocumented and whatnot, is going to come and basically wipe off the Western Hemisphere. It's just ludicrous to think like that. But this is essentially what happened in the course of human history where Arabia in 20 years was united. Whereas before that, just like we look at some of these tribes of African and South America that are on touch, we look down at them. So to Roman Persia, look down at the Arabs, that's this. These are people, they don't even have civilization. They don't have buildings, they don't have language. They don't buy language. I mean, writing libraries, they don't have anything, how are they going to do anything to

00:40:36--> 00:41:15

us? And this is the predictions of the Profit System. And they all have proven true to us, there is no doubt, this is a miracle from a law, you cannot explain this rationally. And even if you say one was a fluke, okay, because you know, that Western historians, they all over analyze why what happened, there was a civil coup there, there was a general that this there, the son in law went and did that. So they have their theories, and they're all right, but these are ullas ways of causing the Empire to collapse, play, you have one fluke, how about another and another, and another, and another, how you get for how long are you going to keep on blaming every single coincidence, and

00:41:15--> 00:41:44

this is what we see of early Islam, that the generation that was the quote, unquote, least civilized did the most civilization. And as Islam increased, in quote, unquote, civilization, it decreased in conquering power. It was at its Pinnacle, in terms of civilization at the early I busted time, and there was zero conquest at the earliest busted time, the earlier buses, the palaces, the institutions based on achema, doddle this, you have the universities, where's the conquering zero,

00:41:45--> 00:42:25

because the world has changed. Now, they're not interested in that anymore. And Allah bless them in other ways. We're proud of that as well. But the blessings that the Sahaba had, and the Tabby rune had, and the temperature of your own had no later generation had in terms of sheer blessings of victory, and the world of Islam as we see it today. By and large, it is the world that was conquered by the Sahaba to the root of a tabula with breathing room here and there with little bits here and there. But by and large, the borders and peripheries of the oma, it wasn't decided by the bosses and the glory of Islam. It was demarcated out by the Sahaba tabula intervertebral, though those were the

00:42:25--> 00:43:07

people who fought and conquered and wherever they went, Islam spread so that it reached the very ends of Africa, all the way to Mongolia and eastern China. So Selma Pharisees incident here that again, he's involved with this entire story about the the trench now doesn't seem I looked up the book. So see what not said, Man doesn't really have any type of major role. We know that he participated in the battles at the same time, in all likelihood, he was too elderly to really, you know, do what the other younger Sahaba did. That was not his role. And he has enough of a role in other things that he has done. So not much is written about other things that he has done. Some

00:43:07--> 00:43:14

tidbits that we know about him, the famous Hadith in a number of books of Hadith that Sandman visited Abu Dhabi.

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

And

00:43:17--> 00:44:01

this was, before the verses of hijab were revealed, hijab was revealed end of the fourth or the fifth year of hijra, so someone would have visited that, right when he became a free man. Okay, so right when it became a free man, some say that he was more Aha, the, the, the pairing of the brothers took place with said, Man, and I would doubt that, and that makes sense as well, because that's why then cemani visiting with that, and he saw that the house was not kept in a good manner. That's Omid Dada was wearing unkempt clothing. And this is before hijab, so he's basically seeing her in her before it is how long to do this. And he asks her What, what what, you know, what is

00:44:01--> 00:44:14

this? And she said, that has no need of anything. Meaning he doesn't need me, he doesn't need the house, then I would or that comes, and he has been working all day. And he says to sell man you eat, I'm fasting.

00:44:15--> 00:44:18

So someone says no, you will break your fast and eat with me.

00:44:19--> 00:45:00

And because salmaan was so much older, have a daughter that was forced to break the fast. Then time came to lay down and sleep and set up with that said, I'm going to pray to you lay down and sleep. And Solomon said, No, go lay down with me. You're going to sleep right now. Then I would try to get up after an hour said no. Now lay down again, until it was only a third or less of the night, only a third coolboxes can even do one fifth But anyway, only a third night. Then salmaan said now you can stand up and pray and they both stood up and prayed. The famous Hadith you all know it. Then the next morning a Buddha complained to the professor said that you made me his his brother

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

Do you know what he did? He broke my fast

00:45:03--> 00:45:06

he forced me to sleep la hora de La Villa.

00:45:07--> 00:45:51

He didn't let me pray my tahajjud so the process of call sell man Explain yourself. And Sandman explained the whole story, what happened? And then sell man explained the story and the famous Hollywood of the process. Some say sada Casal man means salmaan has done the good sadhaka here doesn't mean he spoke the truth means he, he has done the good here sada said man, he has done the the truthful thing. In the zoji karateka, your wife has a right over you. Your guest has a right over you, your body has a right over you. And so give every entity the rights that they deserve. ethically they happen. However, this is a famous study. Now what is truly amazing about this, to me,

00:45:51--> 00:45:54

is that who is saying this?

00:45:57--> 00:46:00

And what was his own life for 40 years,

00:46:01--> 00:46:09

the amount of rebar the southern man did as a Christian monk. He knows what it means to worship.

00:46:10--> 00:46:43

He knows fully what it means to worship. He has done much more than any of the Sahaba did because the version of Christianity that he followed was a very different version than anything Islam has. Yet when Islam came, he understood what is Islam wanting. He didn't take his understanding of Christian worship, and then superimpose it on to Islam. Rather, he must have learned from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what is Islamic worship, and he did not go to extremes therefore

00:46:44--> 00:47:27

and he became even more knowledgeable than people who had been basically Muslim way longer than him. And he's teaching abroad that this is not Islam, this extremism and fanaticism that is you're potentially heading is not Islam, lower it down. And the Prophet system agreed with salmaan that don't go to extremes your body has a right your wife has a right your guest has a right give everyone its right give a lot his right give others his right Aaron's liquidity how can how can who again, this is a beautiful again shows us how much wisdom said man had. There's not much narrated about Sandman during the endears of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then after the

00:47:27--> 00:48:13

death, not much as it all is narrated, what we do know is that he did participate in the conquest of Persia. And he was of those who fought against his own peoples. And he was of those who negotiated with his own peoples. And he spoke with his own people and how I wish we could have more details. But this is one of our biggest problems of these era, who has recorded these detailed conversations. He was sent as an emissary to dialogue with the Persians, can you imagine the conversations taking place How I wish we had these preserved, and he tries to convince the Persians whether he goes that either accept his faith, he goes, I am one of you know, some of the books mentioned, I'll mention a

00:48:13--> 00:48:54

short version we have, that I was one of you. Now I am one of them. And Allah has honored me, and they have honored me as well. Just because I'm a Persian doesn't mean that, you know, I'm being humiliated, they have honored me as well join a new shall be honored to or you can give the jizya and you shall be as you are. Or if you refuse both, then we have no option but to fight you. So salmaan became the ambassador, and this is against his own people, the Persians and you know, the Persians, they did not accept any of these conditions. So they were fought, and so salmaan was of those who fought his own people. And obviously, we know the story that in the end, they, the Muslims

00:48:54--> 00:49:39

won, and the Battle of Odyssey was decisive in opening the Persian frontiers. And salamander the law. One was a participant of those battles. And it was at that point in time where I would say one of the most symbolic moments of the conquest takes place. And again, how I wish we had more details, but I don't even think some of them might have understood the significance or the symbolism, but what will you know what happened here because again, it's just happening in front of their eyes. Sometimes you don't quite understand how important it is until after it happens. And that is set amount or the level one being of those who conquers the muda in the city of Medina and Medina is

00:49:40--> 00:49:59

the capital or one of the main cities of hospital, where one of his most beautiful palaces was built, and it was considered to be a marvel of architecture. And it's still around to this day, is one of the few remnants of the sassanids of the Persian Empire.

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

It is still around it is considered to be the largest.

00:50:06--> 00:50:34

What's the technical term? I don't know. It's a beam that has no supporting columns underneath it, okay? A span or arc or something like this, right? It's It's the largest of the pre modern world, where it's basically a massive arch that doesn't have any support. Okay. And it was the largest ever built, and unbelievably is still standing to this day.

00:50:36--> 00:51:23

And it is a tourist site of medallion test Stefan is the name is called an English test if en si te si p H is tested one. And it is it was considered to be one of the magnificent Wonders of the Ancient World. And it is, you know, it is said that there were rivers there and peacocks and just imagine inside the palace we're talking about. And this palace of course, the structure of it is this arch like the chamber, where holstebro would sit and welcome dignitaries, and there was water flowing, you know, different types of fountains, different animals. And salmonella fantasy is one of those who is conquering that palace and that city, and he is of the first batches that enters. Now

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

to me this is just again, mind boggling from where to where,

00:51:30--> 00:51:48

from his own people, right? This is his own land. And he himself would never have had the opportunity to enter that palace had he been a Persian. But Allah blessed him with Islam, and because of Islam, he becomes a conqueror of his own Emperor.

00:51:50--> 00:52:26

And he walks into that very chamber where he would have been forbidden from going as a common Persian or even as a middle class. He was not he was not nobility. It was a middle class at max. It was a middle class Persian, no way he could have had anything to do with this and now through there is of Islam. And through the Baraka of being a Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Selman becomes one of the conquerors. And then Subhana Allah, He is appointed the governor of the very City, where khosrow ruled sassanid Persia from.

00:52:27--> 00:53:11

And so that palace becomes the place where sell Man does not live, he does not live there, because he's too humble to but essentially, that is where he conducts his business from what a powerful symbol of Islam, from where to where, and again, to me, this is just one of those points, how I wish we could have recorded, we could have had some, you know, eyewitness accounts, but this is history. So pilotlight is all you know, gone on from us. So Sandman becomes a governor of a medallion. Now, in all likelihood, this only lasted a few years, he passes away relatively early, there are many reports about what year he passed away. 3337, most likely 3738 39, basically around this timeframe.

00:53:11--> 00:53:50

So he didn't live to see the fitna. He didn't live all the way then. Now again, in terms of age as well. There's like 20 different reports about how old he was a mama that hubby says, I've read reports he was up to 300 years old, but I consider all of them to be just, you know, mythical or whatnot, in all likelihood is that everything in all likelihood, he was probably around 70, when he passes away, normal life, nothing. He wasn't like any, you know, superhuman or anything of this nature. Now, what we do know as well, we read in the books of history that when he became governor, even though he was only governor for a very short period of time, he lived the utmost simple life.

00:53:50--> 00:54:32

And it is mentioned that he would dress in somewhat of an awkward combination of clothings, a little bit of Persian, a little bit of Arab, so he looked very exotic, like he's comfortable in one dress and having something on top of it. And so the kids would make fun of him. And the Riff Raff would, you know, say this is your immediate dress like this, he would be dressed in the most simplest of garments, his sidoarjo would be going halfway to his shin, okay. And he would have something this something that very, very simple, and when the people saw Selman, they would be shocked that this was the meal because the Persians are used to the fanfare of the Emperor and now they have said man

00:54:32--> 00:54:40

ruling over them as the governor and he is dressing in that manner. In fact, it beside mentions that a person a Muslim visited

00:54:42--> 00:54:59

medallion, and he brought some merchandise with him, and he said, I was in the sock with my merchandise, and I saw a man passed by wearing cheap clothing. I thought that he was somebody nobody. So I said to him, come the orajel come help me. So the man came

00:55:00--> 00:55:41

helped me pick my goods up. And we started walking where I needed to go. When the people saw him carrying my goods, they rushed and they said, Let us help you let us help you. So I said to them, who is this man that I told? And they said, Don't you know this is sell man, the Sahaba, the Sahaba of the Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the man said that, oh, so I have rasulillah I apologize. I didn't know I'm sorry. I didn't know please put it down. and sell man said no, I made the need to carry a to your house. So don't deprive me of the agenda of that. So he carried the goods all the way to the house, like with the wherever place they were going. And this again, shows

00:55:41--> 00:56:29

us the man didn't even recognize who Sandman was because he was just dressed like a commoner or a person without any strong status or whatnot. And we also learned in the books of history that when Sandman was appointed the governor, for the first few, we don't know, days, weeks, months, he was living literally under a tree. He never did not have a house. So whenever his job finished, he would just find the shade and lie down under that and go to sleep there. Until finally somebody had pity on him and said that let me build a house for you. So Solomon said, How big is it going to be? So the man understood. So he said, it will be so big, that when you stand up, your head will hit the

00:56:29--> 00:56:46

roof. And when you go to sleep, your feet will hit the wall. So Solomon said, Okay, that's fine. The man understood that Sandman does not want me to big build a big palace. So he built him a small little room and whatnot. And that was sand man's house till he passed away.

00:56:47--> 00:56:50

Inside reports that a man visited sell man,

00:56:51--> 00:57:08

and he saw some man grinding his own barley. And he's now the Amir is the the the governor. So he said, Where is your servant? Where's your husband? So salmaan said that, I already asked her to do one chore for me today. I didn't want to burden her with two.

00:57:10--> 00:57:22

I didn't want to ask you to something else. I'm not doing this on my own. We also learn as well that somebody visited Sandman and salmaan was purchasing dry date leaves.

00:57:23--> 00:58:13

And he asked what is what are you doing this for? So he said, I purchased these for one did him then I weave baskets out of them. And I can then sell these for multiple did humps, and then I can eat with it. So even as a governor, he is doing manual labor as a weaver of baskets. And he says even if a mirror meaning prevented me from doing this and gave me money, I wouldn't take it. I'm going to earn my own money. I'm not going to get money from anybody else. I'm gonna get my own journey loose by selling my own, you know, basket social Pamela, a weaver of baskets, which means at some point in his life, he must have done this for a living as well. Maybe in Iran maybe in along the way. So

00:58:13--> 00:58:43

that's his speciality now. So as an old man, he is weaving his baskets and selling them. And it is clearly reported many different versions that someone did not like being the governor, he was too much of a burden and a minor, he did not like this. And really he only was the governor for a very short period of time, because he passed away very early on, as we know, of course, he was highly respected by all of the Sahaba. And he is one of the very few of the Sahaba, whom both Sunni and Shia admire. And this is

00:58:44--> 00:59:25

very few as you know, the Shia only respect four or five of the Sahaba. Solomon is one of them. And for many reasons of them, Simon didn't live to see the fitna. So he's not Johnny, you know, he's not in that timeframe of them as well that because he's a little bait. So he's obviously very close to the law one and there's no problem with that we we affirm the status of elevate as well. And, of course, what the law one greatly admired, said man, somebody asked about sell man. And he said salmaan has been given the knowledge of the ancients and the later and he has read the books of those before And the final book. So Sandman is a person of knowledge and more art, even Jebel the

00:59:25--> 00:59:33

greatest fuckery of the Sahaba. He would only encourage his students to study with four other people. One of them was Selma.

00:59:34--> 00:59:52

Only four others as they could advise them to go to one of them was Sandman and Amato, the last one. He would give salmaan a stipend above that of many of the early converts, even though Solomon was not an early convert, but out of and again remember Omar if you remember I said this many times on what had a

00:59:53--> 01:00:00

a hierarchy or what had a very clear amount that he will give Oh bucha will give everybody the same and almost said no, is

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

Not fair, the people who converted earlier and did more deserve more than those who converted at the end. And this means he himself would be at a second or third level, because he's not of the first batches. And that's fine. So salmaan would get, essentially what a middle level Mahajan would get. So he would get around four or 5000. Some say for some say 5000. Did hums a year. And Abdullah, even Omar, the son of a or what would get 3000 3500 and salmaan obviously converted way after I've done a little bit more. But he has a unique category

01:00:36--> 01:01:08

as a unique category, because he's neither Mahajan, nor unsought, then the process that he's from others bait. So that was a unique category that actually gave him a status that was higher than that of other people. And he died at the very end of the hill off of idea of sorry, of Earth, Mount rhodiola. One, and some say at the very beginning of the feed off of Ali, and he died in testifying in muda, in the very city that he is the governor of. And when he was on his deathbed, he told his heart and his servant

01:01:10--> 01:01:32

to bring the most expensive perfume that he had, he had found some perfume when he conquered. And that was his and that was saved in a special place. So the day that he died, he called for that perfume, He mixed it up with water, and he prayed, sprayed it around his bed. And he said to his hadham, that today I shall receive visitors who do not eat, but they can smell.

01:01:34--> 01:02:12

They love good smell, but they don't eat, and we know who they are. Today I'm going to receive visitors, you can't give them any food, no matter what you have is not going to benefit them. But they appreciate good smell. Okay, and we know this, that the angels, they don't like bad smell, they love good smell, and they don't eat food. So today, I'm going to receive visitors that they can smell it on a hat, but they're not going to eat anything. Then he Oh, he ordered all of the doors of the house to be open. And he said I don't know which door they're going to come from open all the doors. And the servants were what's going on what's going on. So Pamela within a few, whatever short

01:02:12--> 01:02:32

period of time they found him sleeping, and it was asleep. But it was in fact, death. It was in fact death. And sad him who cost visited him in those last few days. Sad, the sad. One of the 10 sides is still alive now. And so I there's also participating in the conquest suicide is there at this point, so sad is visited.

01:02:33--> 01:03:09

set him on fire to see and said man, and he was sick. So there was a premonition you might die said man began to cry. And sad said, So seeing sad brought back memories what not sad said Why are you crying? You are so happy whom the process of them loved and you're going to if anything happens, you're going to go meet him? What's the crying for? So Solomon says I'm not crying out of fear of death. But the prophet system commanded us a command. And I did not live up to it. What was that command? Oh, sad man, the prophecies and commanded us to live in this world, like a traveler

01:03:11--> 01:03:52

to only take what we need as a traveler, and look at all that I have around me. And Robbie said, I looked around him and there was a few jars and some rugs. And that's it. It's not as if he had a palace, right. But Sandman felt that I've become too excessive. And he lived the lifestyle of a peasant of a very poor man. But even this man said I haven't lived up to the commands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam even said in his double quotes, which is the earliest book written of history, he has a very interesting narration I really loved it too beautiful narration listen to this one. And I'm not drawing any theology from it. Just let it be.

01:03:53--> 01:04:01

said man. And Abdullah Eben Salam who is Abdullah bin said, um, guys, all of you should know, the

01:04:02--> 01:04:13

the rabbi, the rabbi who converted. Okay, Selman, and Abdullah bin Salaam were good friends pause here. Of course, they were good friends. Think about it.

01:04:14--> 01:04:27

They are both intellectuals. They're both gone through the books. They're both. They must have a lot in common. Of course, they were good friends. So Selma said to Abdullah, that let's make a pact.

01:04:28--> 01:04:34

Let's make a deal. What is the deal? Whoever dies before the other

01:04:35--> 01:04:37

shall come to the other in a dream.

01:04:39--> 01:04:42

So Abdullah had been sat down said, Is that even possible?

01:04:43--> 01:04:58

And salmaan says, Yes, the souls of the believers are free to roam around as they please. It is the souls of the kuffar that are chained up, the believers can go so yes, if we want to we can visit each other in a dream.

01:04:59--> 01:05:00

So

01:05:00--> 01:05:06

salmaan died before Abdullah had been Salam. And Abdullah bin salam, one day went to sleep

01:05:08--> 01:05:28

in Medina, and he took a nap in the daytime. And he saw salmaan in a dream, fulfilling the pact. So he said, How are you and Selma settle hamdulillah I am declare I'm doing fine. Abdullah bin said, I'm said what is the one deed that you have done that you have been rewarded the most for?

01:05:29--> 01:05:53

What is the deed that you can advise me to do? And salmaan responded, I found to work cool, to be the most amazing thing I have done. I advise you to have to work code in a law I advise you to have to work good in a law, I advise you to have to work code in Java. Now if you look at the story of salmaan from beginning to end, it is nothing but the

01:05:55--> 01:06:14

truth. Look at the story of Solomon he knows he has his trust, Allah will take care of me and Allah will guide me and ally Georgia will allow me to come to the man who is supposed to eventually going to be the Prophet. And the whole story of Sandman is a manifestation of tawakkol and there is a small area now in the

01:06:16--> 01:06:55

in the lands of Iran right now. It is actually called salmaan back salmaan bow I think might be in western mind back there it was in English, and they say this is where he used to live outside of medallion. And this is where his house used to be it is called after him to this day it's a small little village and they say his grave is there. Allah subhana wa tada knows best. I know time is up but there just give me three or four Hadith inshallah Sonata Farsi has around 30 Hadith we don't we're not going to go through all of them. It's not that much. But I just wanted to go over some of the hadith of cinema nfrc from again, as you know, I'm doing with cinema, Mohammed. And he has from

01:06:55--> 01:07:44

23,701 all the way to 23,753. So how much is that? So around 50? Around 50 Hadeeth. But with repetition, so maybe 2025 without repetition. So said right, and Pharisees had each of them very quickly. So I modified scenario that the prophets of Allah sent him would accept gifts and he would not accept sadhaka. We accept salmaan. We expect segmanta narrators heddy Okay, he will accept gifts, but he would not accept sadhaka A man came to submodel pharmacy, and he said, mockingly I see that your master meaning the profitsystem teaches you everything, so much so that he even teaches you how to go to the bathroom.

01:07:46--> 01:08:28

salmaan said, Yes, indeed. Even if you find it funny. Yes, indeed, even if you find it funny, he teaches us how to use the restroom. And he tells us not to face the fibula. And he tells us not to wipe with the right hand. And he tells us to avoid dung and whatnot, and that we wipe ourselves at least three times. So this is one of those Hadith that actually is used in the books of how to how to do a certain job, and how to do the heart and whatnot. This is one of the most famous Hadith narrated by Sandman, which is dude in the books of filth, and it shows us his level of a man that I don't care you can make fun of me. And honestly, it is ironic that people are gonna make fun of us

01:08:28--> 01:08:44

for restroom etiquette, when they're the people who don't even wash themselves wet themselves in the restroom, right? I'm sorry, you have no right to make fun of our bathroom. etickets when you guys don't even wash yourself. So Solomon said yes. Even if you make fun of it. Yes, he has taught us to cleanse ourselves properly.

01:08:46--> 01:08:47

So

01:08:48--> 01:08:49

salmaan and Farsi.

01:08:51--> 01:09:34

man says I would send a manual Farsi under a tree. And he held on to a dried branch and he shook the branch until the trees, leaves fell. And he said, Well, you asked me why I did this. So I said, Why did you do this? He said the same thing happened. I was with the process and he'd hold on to he held on to a tree. He shook it until it's least fell. He asked me Oh Sal, man, why don't you ask me why I did it. I said Yasuo, why did you do it? So the profitsystem said, when a Muslim perfects his will do and praise the five prayers, then all of his sins fall off him like these leaves fell off of the street. Then he recited what acclaim is salata Potter for you in the Hardy was una familia laid in

01:09:34--> 01:09:49

and has an anti feminist say at that eco the decorative decorating. This is sort of who the verse one word for famous Hadith narrated by Sandman, alpha c. has an Al basri narrated one salmaan was about to die He began to cry.

01:09:50--> 01:09:59

And he said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam promised us to do something, and we neglected that promise. He promised us where he told us

01:10:00--> 01:10:46

That we should only take enough of this world like a traveler who's traveling through his destination. And we didn't live up to that. So the narrator says, we looked around and how much he left, and it was less than 30 did hums when he died, less than 30 did hums. And remember, he purchased his own freedom for 40. Okay, which is more than that, he purchased his own freedom for more, he dies with less than what he purchased his own freedom for and yet he's feeling guilty that I didn't live up to the command of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said modifiers he narrated that the prophets are seldom said that Allah is shy when his servants raise his hand up to him

01:10:46--> 01:11:02

asking for good that he lowers them back with those hands being empty. There's a famous Hadith that raise your hands up when you're making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Let me just finish up a few more, I'm going to skip over a few. Okay, this is the one I wanted to say that

01:11:03--> 01:11:49

I would have bought every one of the Bureau and says that when Selman was added particular fortress, meaning in Persia, he said to his people, allow me to go talk to them, and to follow the commander of the prophet SAW Selim. So he went to them, this is him going to the Persians. And it's very concise. That's all we know. He went to them. And he said, in Mr. Kuhn to Raja Minh confer danila hulan Islam, I was one of you. And Allah guided me to Islam. So if you accept Islam, then you will be just like us. And just like me, and if you reject, then you're allowed to give the his jizya and you can be who you are. And if you reject even that, then we will fight you on equal terms, okay.

01:11:49--> 01:12:02

And they rejected except to fight, and he gave them three days to consider and everyday he would go to them, then when they refused, he then fought, and then he achieved victory over them.

01:12:05--> 01:12:22

We've already done the hadith of planting 300,000 Muslim, I'm in the process of implanted 300. Okay, I wanted to do a very controversial Hadith, which is slightly weak, but you need to know it exists. It is a weak idea. And therefore, it has caused quite a lot of controversy in the past, and it still does in the present.

01:12:25--> 01:12:37

sentiment, Solomon said, it's weak because it's a missing link in it. So it's a significant missing link. We don't have the full it's not. Solomon said, the prophet system said to me, oh, Solomon,

01:12:38--> 01:12:50

do not hate me, or else you will leave my religion. salmaan said, Dr. rasulillah, how could I possibly hate you, when Allah guided us through you?

01:12:52--> 01:12:58

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, if you were to hate the Arab, you would hate me.

01:13:00--> 01:13:51

This is a very, very deep Hadith that has proven to be problematic in the past. And in the present. If you were to hate the out of tabula rasa photobooth oni Okay. Now, many scholars say this hadith is close to even being fabricated, because it seems to be very convenient when the because there was historically, historically and in 2018, the Arabs and the Persians have had massive differences. Okay, looks like history hasn't changed, as we look at it now that they were very, there are many tensions between the outcome and the force. And this hadith is very convenient at the time. So some scholars even say this is fabricated, most say it is just very weak or weak. And it's clear, it's

01:13:51--> 01:14:18

definitely not authentic, but it isn't, most of them are Muhammad. And not just that, but there's a version even in Timothy, which is one of the six books so it's Hadith is there, and it is a well known Hadith. And many scholars, even taymiyah considered the concept to be totally authentic and Tamia was not an outcome. And he said loving the outcome is a sign of a man he actually said this, believe it or not, by the way out I was in the audience. He doesn't mean you guys

01:14:19--> 01:14:27

why not? I'm being dead serious here. I'm being dead serious here. Why? Well, some of your items not all of you, who are the out of

01:14:30--> 01:14:32

so which out of is in the head if if

01:14:33--> 01:15:00

yes, the original outcome not done was started people after the conquest of Islam, okay. This not because the the the outcomes of our times, by and large, the most of them, they're ethnically other peoples who have accepted Arabic language, Arabic civilization, Arabic culture, and so they are called out have no problem, no problem. But if this hadith is authentic, and

01:15:00--> 01:15:15

It's not quite authentic. But even if the concept is authentic, then this is talking about the bundle Adnan and the bundle katan. Okay, that's what it's talking about the, out of the time of the Prophet system that people have that, and even taymiyah said that

01:15:16--> 01:15:31

the fact that Allah chose the Prophet system to be from the children of his married, and to be from the children of Adnan and the children of coronation, what not, it is an indication that, to love Him is to love his people.

01:15:32--> 01:16:10

And so yes, in that sense, we have to love the art not the doubt observe better than anybody else, because that's against Islam. Right? But just to love the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam as a love to Rasulullah sysm, we love the people of Rasulullah, right? And so he actually defended this hadith as being the concept being authentic. Okay. And if you tell me, his interpretation is interesting, and I don't have a problem with it, nonetheless, you can understand how easily it becomes ethnic and semi racist and whatnot. So I just wanted to tell you this hadith is there. And it is a famous Hadith and it is the process of telling salmaan that if you hate the Arabs, you will

01:16:10--> 01:16:24

end up hating me. And it has caused a lot of discussion amongst fuqaha and mohabbatein and whatnot, you just know it exists and that will shallow to either conclude today's highlight any quick questions about this issue, as well as

01:16:30--> 01:16:34

it does not appear that Selman ever married.

01:16:35--> 01:17:10

It does not appear that he ever married or had children. It has not has been narrated, that he ever married and alone was best. All the books that I've read, it seems to indicate that he did not get married or have children. And this would make sense because he lived his entire life as a monk and a slave. As a monk, he would not be allowed to get married as a young man, he would not be allowed to then he became a slave. then by the time he converts, he's in somewhat of an elderly man. And he's living is such a simple life. The fact that when he's appointed the governor, he doesn't even have a house. For many weeks or months. He's living literally under a tree, he would go to a tree and lay

01:17:10--> 01:17:18

down in the case, he has no family at all. So it doesn't appear that he ever got married and Allah knows best. Okay, yes, good.

01:17:24--> 01:17:38

The freed slaves might come under, but not the ones who were freed as an act of sadhaka they might come under and sell man because the Profit System helped him to become freed.

01:17:39--> 01:17:48

Because he himself planted the seats, and he himself in you know, encouraged and whatnot. So this gives Selman that status as well. Okay, yes.

01:17:50--> 01:18:08

Are they still around? Uh huh. That's a good question. Are they still around? I have no doubt that that land would still be blessed it in his palm trees, but in all likelihood, those exact ones because palm trees don't last for 1000s and 1000s of years and

01:18:09--> 01:18:14

Baraka means it's going to be extended, but not to the Day of Judgment.

01:18:16--> 01:18:19

No, we do not know we do not know Okay, final question for

01:18:25--> 01:18:27

you ask a very controversial question.

01:18:31--> 01:18:36

Isn't every question so that he's leaving it to me to be controversial and he gets out of it? Okay.

01:18:38--> 01:18:43

Why is salmonella Farsi considered holy by the Guru's

01:18:44--> 01:18:46

the gurus tribe, the Druze sect, okay.

01:18:48--> 01:18:53

The Guru's actually believe that Sandman was the

01:18:55--> 01:19:18

the Barton, the one who was chosen above the profit level setup, and the processor was the boy head or the outer the kernel the shell. So he becomes secondary, and salmaan becomes primary. They flip it around, okay, and said magnifiers, he takes on the role of essentially a god figure.

01:19:19--> 01:19:59

And the Prophet becomes the Bab to the god he becomes like a door, like the one who's calling. And the Guru's, of course, their beliefs by unanimous consensus. They are not in fact, they don't even call themselves Muslims. They call themselves why they don't. They don't call themselves Muslims, and there is no Salah amongst them, there is no zecca amongst them. There is no Joomla they worship on Sundays, and their worship ceremony consists of drinking bits of alcohol like the Catholics do. The doodle is well known. So the Druze do not have any of the shot out of Islam at all. They don't have Lawson and will do and sada and Zika and had nothing whatsoever.

01:20:00--> 01:20:44

And that is why the Druze these days are in the IDF. One of the main jobs of the doodles you should know this, one of the main jobs of the gurus. They are a special segment of the Israeli Defense Force. And the Israelis love the doodles, they love them. The Druze have a special status and they use the Guru's to say we love all Arabs Look, the Druze are Arab. Okay, so the Israelis love the druids and use them as token figures as this. Now the theology of the Druze is something that is just only recently being studied, because the gurus are perhaps the most secretive group of the Muslim Ummah much more secretive than the Israelis.

01:20:46--> 01:21:00

The one that says many of them in other hand is in Bora so the Smiley's are fork for groups they say four groups are left of the Smiley's you got me in my speciality man. I mean, I'm just gonna go on and on. This is my this is my area of expertise.

01:21:01--> 01:21:41

Dr. Boucher, where did you attend the she art class that we gave and if someone's right to that, so I spent 10 days having a detailed class of every fiddle part of this year, and every bite if and every group and it was it was very nice to do but that's but I can't do it over here because it's not appropriate to do but there are four groups of the smiley you have the the mainstream seven or is smiley and there are two groups there are the honeys and bahara Okay, they are on the border our sister groups, and they are by and large, not in Arab lands, they are in Indian Buxton. Then in Arab lands, you have two groups.

01:21:42--> 01:22:33

The major one is the Guru's, okay. And then you have the either we have no idea and other weird slash notes idea, in reality, they should not be categorized, really as smart really, in reality, they are a breakaway of the Ethernet ashlea, who have been influenced by this melody. So it's even more technical in advance. So however, the dude the North Lady and the either way, there are caught it have been studied in quite a lot of detail in the last 20 years, the gurus To this day, we do not have their source books. To this day, their source books are just little tidbits and remnants. Why because there is the highest level of secrecy amongst the doodles. And in fact, their own peoples

01:22:33--> 01:23:00

are uneducated about their faith. They have a system they're in which around 80 to 90% of their own people. They're called the awam, the jihad, okay, they they are expected to know nothing of the fate, they know nothing of their religion, then there is maybe 10% or 15%, one out of every 10 person was chosen by the community to basically become a leader. And that leader is called

01:23:01--> 01:23:01

What are they called?

01:23:03--> 01:23:23

intelligent people are called, okay, the people of intelligence they're called. And it is the call who basically study in their seminaries, or there's only one or two there, because another point is they're so small, as you know, there's only one place they live. That's it, literally, they only live in one place in the whole world. And then they go from there. So the gurus

01:23:25--> 01:24:06

are a breakaway of the fatimids. And they deify and hacking the umbrella, who is one of the ultimate Hoda, who was called the madman, because he really was a madman, he was a little bit crazy, not a little bit, he was totally crazy. He would give the most bizarre verdicts for the people to follow. Sometimes he'll be walking without any clothes in public. This is the halifa Imagine that. I mean, he was he was mental. And he founded his own athlete and whatnot. And the people's continued to follow it until this day, and they're basically the doodles they consider and how can be ended up to be the final manifestation of God on earth. And they have a weird theology and of their theology,

01:24:06--> 01:24:09

Allah came down in the form of segmanta fantasy.

01:24:10--> 01:24:34

And the Prophet was the door to send mass you understand right there and it's just complete. So whatever we know about them, there is no question that they are a faith that has nothing to do with Islam. And they don't consider themselves Muslim. And they don't come to our massages. They have they don't even have massages, per se. And if you meet any doozy, any Dorsey, he himself is ignorant of his own religion.

01:24:35--> 01:24:59

Unless he's of their own pot, and they're appalled don't mix with the people there at all. Are they dressed differently, they have the big mustaches and the caps and whatnot, right? They don't, they don't mix with the people they have their job is just to preserve the faith and the ignorant that are one go to the call for their services. And that's it. There's no knowledge that the people have. So anyway, if you want to longer Hello, believe me, but I don't want to bore the people in Charlottetown

01:25:00--> 01:25:02

baby shower. With that we conclude and I'll see you all next week.
