Channel: Yasir Qadhi
In this enlightening video, Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi attempts a detailed discussion on the assassination of Uthman Ibn ‘Affan RA while also encompassing important facts relating Abu Dharr Al-Ghifari.
To summarise the above talk, we gather information on Abu Dharr Al Ghifari and the circumstances that led him and his entire tribe to accept Islam. We understand about his contribution in the Battle of Tabuk.
Abu Dharr is considered to be among the four pillars for Twelve Shia’s. Abu Dharr was a man that led a life of simplicity , truthfulness and completely abided by what Allah had ordered upon us and had told us to beware of in Surah Taubah of the Noble Qur’an. Similar such anecdotes and incidents are shared by the Shaykh on Abu Dharr which are really worth listening to.We are also explicitly made aware of Abu Dharr’s death.
Some misconceptions regarding the treatment of Uthman Ibn Affan RA towards Abu Dharr are explicitly elaborated and one should also make himself aware of the same in order to avoid greater harm.

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim
al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad Ali, he was happy as mine and my bed. Today we will begin the very difficult and somewhat controversial and definitely very sad topic of the assassination of the hollyford mandible. And it will be a, a multi series talk. And one of the advantages Alhamdulillah of me being based here in Memphis is that there's no time constraints. So I can Alhamdulillah go into some detail where the need is otherwise, typically, when I go to another city, and I teach, I have to condense everything together. So today, we're actually going to take a beginning preliminary a bit of a tangent, because there's one controversy that
deserves its own attention, one controversy that deserves an entire lecture, and it will in fact, serve us two purposes. And that is the controversy of the alleged friction between a Buddha RFID and earthman. Eben have fun. Okay, one of the complaints that the people who killed a man had, there's a long list of complaints. We're going to do that list next week in sha Allah. We're going to do that list next week. And we're going to talk about the whole list and the people next week. So what we're going to do today, we're going to take one of those points and make a whole lecture out of it. And that is the complaint that they had about the mistreatment of a Buddha al Rifai, one of the senior
Sahaba so one of the reasons that they petitioned Earth man and surrounded his house, and they were screaming out their complaints, and eventually would be rabble rousing. Eventually they barged into his house and even killed him on that list is today's lecture, which is the relationship of Abu Dhabi and earth man. And when I was writing today's lecture early today morning, I realized you know, what, this is the ideal time to actually go into a related tangent and that is the life and times of a Buddha elefante because the whole series is the series of the Sahaba. And in fact, this incident is really the culmination and the end of his life. So it doesn't make sense for us to go
round in circles. So, I thought that what I do kill two birds with one stone as they say, and that is to do the entire life of frt culminating with the friction or the alleged friction with Earth man and then the death of a Buddha and then the aftermath of that, okay. So, today's lecture is in fact, as I said, a bit of a dual lecture, you can say, the complaints of the assassins against man part one, and you can also say, a Buddha was fit, because, in fact, that is really that is the entire lecture, and inshallah when we are doing the series of the Sahaba, I will then reference You know what, we've already done a Buddha, we don't have to do him basically in our next in our next, you
know, session that we're going to do this. So
without a fit, most of us have heard of his name. In fact, I've mentioned him in the serum many many times. And a Buddha is his name is jundo. Eben Janata Joon Dube Eben Janata, and he is from the tribe of the far which is a small tribe between MK and Medina. So, local Hejazi tribe within Mecca and Medina, and the tribe of the far we're friends with and distant cousins of another tribe, Islam, and Islam and reefer are typically mentioned together. And the both of them had very bad reputations in the days of Jackie Lee earned reputations Why? Because how did they get their income, highway robbery, highway robbery, this is how they got their income. It is well known that pre Islam even
post Islam, many tribes didn't bother to engage in commerce, didn't bother to engage in agriculture. They would simply monitor caravans and steal from the caravans. And that was how they got their income. And they far was one of the most dishonorable tribes in this regard. They had this reputation of being basically thugs, highway robbers, okay. And a Buddha was from this tribe. And he grew up doing what the rest of his tribe did. And in fact, we learned from his biography that even from his childhood, he was somewhat of a loner, and this is something that we're going to come back to later on, that he would go out into the wilderness on his own as the as the people that are times
go camping. He would go out on his own and live on his own.
Hunting from whatever and then coming back very rugged, very individual person. And even his description They say he was a tall, extremely thin man, very wirey very like energetic, and a full, you know, white beard, of course when he was elderly, and even his description is one of an energetic person who's a very, if you like outgoing type of rugged personality, even in our times we have those types of people they love to go into the wilderness. This is a job without a family. And without, even though he did what his tribe did, which is a basically highway robbery, in terms of his theology, he never worshipped idols. And he rejected idolatry. Even as a young man,
one of his brothers or niece came back from Mecca, and said to him, that old brother there is a man in Makkah, who is preaching what you are also believing in that idolatry is wrong. I've just come back from Africa, and they have somebody there who is saying the same thing you're saying.
So he immediately packed his bags and decided to go for Umrah. But his brother said, Be careful. This man is somebody who is despised by his own people, persecuted by his own people, you cannot ask publicly about him, or else you yourself will be in trouble. So he entered Mecca in the middle of the night. And of course, because he's from the tribe of FIFA, and because he doesn't have a protector or patron, he cannot publicly announce who he is, or even that he is present, because the fit tribe is not welcome because of their reputation. And so, without a referee, as many of you have heard this story, what did he do? He hid himself under
the relief of the Kaaba.
He hid himself under the relief of the Kaaba, and he remained there during the day. And then at evening, he would go out when nobody would recognize him, do whatever he needed to do, and then come back and spend the entire day under the radar of the Kava. And eventually he met someone whom he thought would be sympathetic. Most likely it was boubakeur. Some say it was Ali. We don't know exactly one of these two. And he got the information that who is the profit system that I have heard, there's a man who is causing controversy, preaching something new, who is that man? And so they pointed to him, it was either obaku or only one of the two pointed to him, the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and a Buddha Allah Jeffery then ventured to meet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Profit System greeted him with the greetings of Sam. And it is said this is the first time that the Sam was ever said a sellout why they come to have without it. And without then asked the Prophet system about his theology and teachings. And the Prophet system explained to him what he is talking about La ilaha illAllah, recited the Koran, and without immediately embraced Islam. And he became the fifth person to embrace Islam. We're talking about way back early. We're talking about the persecution days. We're talking about the first two years of Islam when we're
still in the private phase of Dawa. And this also proves that the private phase cannot be called the secret phase. It's not a secret. It's an open secret. Everybody knows that the process was preaching something other than the theology of his people. So without becomes the first non mucky Sahaba to convert the first person outside of Makkah to convert without RFID he is that early. Okay, everybody else before him is local in Makkah, and he converts and he becomes the fifth or something even the fourth and one opinion says the six but in any case, so what fourth, fifth six of the first batch of converts to Islam? So abubaker asked him, How long have you been in Mecca? And Buddha says 30 days.
A worker says, What have you been eating? Where have you been living? So a Buddha said, I have been hiding under the roof of the Kaaba and drinking Zamzam for 30 days straight and, and he showed his stomach I have grown fat off of Zamzam.
Just Zamzam because he doesn't have any person you can go to just Zamzam and I have grown semi to have given my gain my weight from drinking Zamzam and this is one of the profitsystem said that famous had it in the hopper, I mean, that Zamzam counts as food for the one who needs food. There is miraculous power in zum zum zum zum will give you what you want. And the other hand, he says I just quoted it zum zum
We'll give you what you want. So the one who drinks thumbs down for food, it will be food for him. The one who drinks Thumbs up for a particular day. It will be to offer him the one who drinks zum zum for answering any need, it will answer his need. So Matt was Emma Lima Sheree Bella who is the head it says Zamzam water is what it is intended for, without intended for it to be for food. He wanted it to be food, and therefore he basically got fat just drinking Zamzam.
So aboubaker invited him to his house that same night, and Buddha ate food for the first time in 30 days in the house of Abu Bakar. Also do
it eventually he stays near Walker's house after a few days.
His Islam becomes somewhat public, the Quran gang up upon him beat him up, and they find out he's from afar, they bloody him and bruise him and he has to leave the city of Mecca. So he leaves the city of Mecca. This is most likely in the second year or the third year of the preaching. Okay, very early mcca healios maka, and when he goes back to his people, he began preaching Islam. So up without la Ferrari becomes the first day in the history of Islam outside of Makkah, okay, the first person who is sent outside of Islam, well, he wasn't sent he was kicked out. But what did he do after the holy kicked him out, he becomes the first caller to Islam in the history of Islam.
Otherwise, the people are local in Mecca, he becomes the first and he goes back, he converts his brother on Ace that he converts his mother. And then slowly but surely, people from his tribe began to convert until more than half of his tribe has converted to Islam. And the Prophet system is still in Makkah. He has not yet gone to Medina. Okay, he's still in Mecca. So more than half of the tribe of the far converts to Islam and the other half, they said, We will wait until the process have become successful, then we'll convert let's see what happens and therefore the other half converted after the process of migrating to Medina. So the tribe of Zafar in its entirety, converted without
any army or expedition being sent, it converted at the doorway of a Buddha RFID. And because reefer and Islam were like cousins, a slum also converted at the conversion of leafa. And so without single handedly, by the blessings of Allah subhana wa tada brought the conversion of two entire tribes. And these two tribes were considered to be of the worst tribes in their ethics and norms because they are highway robbers, they're bandits and SubhanAllah. This shows us never judge a person by one deed of his never judge a person by a lifestyle or a habit, because it is even mentioned in some of the books of biography that even the Prophet system expressed amazement when a brother introduced
himself that I am a Buddha from the tribe of afar. Even the Prophet system is one book of establish that he put his hand on his head like as if you are here seeking Islam, like somebody from that tribe, you are actually interested in higher spirituality, right? I mean, he didn't say that, but that was what the, the the the surprise comes at somebody from afar. And Allah azza wa jal guides whomever he pleases, and Subhana Allah, this tribe that was known to be so brutal and evil, the entire tribe single handedly without any warfare, converted simply because a Buddha kept on persistently preaching and then the tribe of Islam as well embraced Islam. And that is why the
Prophet system praised both of these tribes in authentic hadith narrated in body and Muslim and other authentic books of Hadith. Praise the entire tribes that are left out and Muslim, referred and Islam excuse me, and he used their names as a token of good of Omen It is, it is Islamic to have positive omens I've mentioned as many times you take a name and you derive a positive meaning from it. And our Prophet system said, as a far kafir Allahu Allah whom will Aslam said I'ma holla they fall off or Allahu Allah home. Therefore Allah has forgiven them whatever happened happened End of story, Allah has forgiven them. And Aslam Salah mahalo Islam, Allah has given peace to it, and Allah
has protected it from any evil even though Islam was causing evil, and they far were the ones who were not forgiving others. So the he took their names and he made a good omen out of them, they found out a lot of Islam Salama helot. Both of these tribes converted by the blessings of Allah xojo through the death of a Buddha. Eventually a Buddha migrates to Medina, but he migrates most likely in the sixth year, there may be
An early seventh year.
So he misses all of the major battles.
He's not there, it's not his fault. He's with his tribe is giving power to his tribe. And because he's not being persecuted his years, not obligatory on them, he draws obligatory on those who are being persecuted, because they couldn't practice their faith. They far was not being persecuted. So there was no obligation on without to migrate. So he migrated whenever he felt like he had the need to do so. And this is most likely in the sixth year of the hijra, so he misses brother, and are hurt and exam, all of the big battles he misses, but not because he skipped them, because he's physically not present in Medina. And there's a very interesting narration in the book of even Abdullah about
one of the earliest books that chronicles the lives of the Sahaba it'd been Abdullah butter is also one of those famous and the Lucien scholars I was talking about yesterday that Andalus has produced many interesting scholars and even even the Buddha is one of them. And even Abdullah bar, he has a narration, which is very, very interesting. But I'll just tell you, now it has a slight weakness in it. And so just be beware of this as we go on. And it says in this narration, he quotes and it's not back to the Prophet system, that when a Buddha returned to Medina, in the seventh year of the higit, on our pause here, how many years have gone by more than 17 years?
Okay, more than 17 years have gone by, because without converted, second year of the hedgerow, 10 years in Medina and Mecca, another six years so around 16 years basically have gone by, since the processor has seen him correct. And how long was the meeting when he was there? Two, three days. Okay, so, a Buddha comes back 16 years after having met the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. And without says, out of 10 er rasulillah. Have you recognized me? Do you know who I am? Or messenger of Allah? So this report has an interesting take on it. Now, pause your observe what does observer mean?
The word shuttle from ayama. Miss Carla Zara. The word Zara in Arabic and Zara is the feminine signifies something that is miniscule or small. Okay, and that is why in modern Arabic When a modern Arab hears Volterra, what does he think of XM? what they learn in science is that that is the atom that's not classical Arabic because there is no atom in classical Arabic. Okay, and that's why in modern English translations, for me, yeah, I'm gonna miss Carla Vera, whoever does an atom is way too good. But of course, in classical Arabic, Vedra isn't an atom atom is a modern connotation, Zara, and Zara. There are many meanings to it, but it all goes around something very small. And the
meant in the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam a very small and as well, that's one of the meanings of devil is that it's a small act. Okay, clear. So when the Prophet says Adam saw him in this report of his theology, by ibn Abdullah Bara, and a Buddha says, Did you recognize me? The process Some said yes, and abou Nam LA.
You are the father of the ENT, Abu Nebula and there is a type of Ent. And I would not have said No, I am not a buena Mala. I'm a Buddha. So
this report raises some interesting questions. Firstly, realize the report is very slightly weak because as is typical in the stories of the Sahaba, there's typically just a missing link. Because unlike the ahaadeeth, has not been preserved history had it has been preserved because me history is not preserved as scientifically. And these are historical narrations. So there's a missing link, the one who narrated from without is a slight missing link. So we don't take this as an authentic hadith. Nonetheless, the point being that it seems to appear that the Prophet system
did what every human does. In fact, it is amazing even after 17 or 16 years he remembers of Buddha Buddha, but there seems to be a human judgment error here. And once again, we get back to this very controversial topic we keep on bringing up the humanity of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Many modern Muslims balk at these types of things. Firstly, the Hadith is slightly weak. Secondly, even if it were authentic, so what the prophet system is a human being and the same lapses that occurred to us can occur to him as long as those lapses do not occur in conveying the idea
that he is Mausam conveying the idea
And other than this, we have authentic a hadith in Bukhari and Muslim forget is the album at the bottom we have authentic hadith numerous times of things that are completely human. The famous Hadith multifocal a body and Muslim that the process and pray two rakaat
and he turned around and everybody's too scared to ask him until finally lulea Dane says Yasser Allah has a large change though her from four to two, or have you made a mistake? Have you forgotten underseat?
And the President said, neither has a law change, nor have I forgotten. Then he turns to a worker did I pray to? And I said, Yes, you pray to. Then he stood up and he completed to and then prayed says the things right. And there are other things as well. And in fact, in that Hadith, he said, in Nima Anna Bashara myth lucam. In this Hadith, he says that motto for Kali, I am a human like you answer Kamata and so on. I forget, like you forget. So when you see the Imam make a mistake, then sub be who say some handle all of us do. And the women clap their hands, as we know, the famous Howdy. So this narration, even though it's not fully authentic, but there's nothing at all wrong
with it, in fact, it's rather interesting. And it's rather amazing that the process of actually remembered after 17 years, instead of saying a Buddha, Abu nambla is synonymous means the same thing. And he recognized that this was the man from that back in the day. And then he came back to our editor, so without did not participate in any of the major battles. However, in the same year that he comes in the seventh year, less than a year after he comes to Medina, what is the big battle that takes place to book the Battle of a book, right. And
it is in the Battle of two books that we began to see the Prophet system his love for a Buddha.
Of course, there's no mention mentioned before, this is not in Medina, there's no mention nothing to do with him. Now, Abu Dhabi is now a part of the life of Medina. And it is in the Battle of the book where the Prophet system begins to mention, and we see the praises of Buddha, that the famous narrations that are in Bahati, and so many books of Hadith, that when
the caravan left Medina, and a number of people didn't come, and the process and was told about them, that they didn't come for the book, he said, Don't worry, if there is any good in them, they will come. If not, then Allah has saved you from them, don't worry about them. And we all know the story of gab and all of that we went over it and a lot of detail. Remember that day we talked about now. Then, the Sahaba saw a lone man walking in the distance walking
without any camel or horse with his bags on his back, and just trailing along on the second or third day, which means he must have been walking nonstop to catch up, because the rest of horses, right. And each group was hoping that this is their man who was left behind.
And the profitsystem said, Let it be a Buddha Kuhn Ababa.
And it was indeed a Buddha. Okay. And this shows us the status of a Buddha that out of all of the Sahaba and those who were munafo who were not there, each tribe wants this one person to be that person of their tribe. And the process. We said, I wish it's a Buddha. And lo and behold, it is a Buddha, Buddha. We'll come to now the big issue about him and his lifestyle. He was so poor, he didn't own a camel. He didn't own a horse. Nobody donated a horse to him, or amount to him. So what did he do when everybody left and he couldn't find a horse? And he's excused. He takes his baggage, his pack backpacks, whatever, puts it on his own back and starts marching non stop until he catches
up with the caravan because they have to rest and he knows if he continues walking and again this goes back to his lifestyle. He's the sole hunter he's the the the the What do you call it? Now? I mean, the
outdoorsman, okay. He is the outdoorsman. Okay, he is that's what he was the lone outdoorsman. He goes out and he does this.
Lone Ranger. Not quite the Lone Ranger is the person who does that's his lifestyle. He's been doing it and Mashallah Tabata cola three days non stop marching. How can we do that? He did it. And when the process of them saw him, he said the famous phrase the famous drought or the famous prediction all of it together, Rahim Allah who Bizarro may Allah have mercy on
em Shiva who want to move to wahoo shadow while
he's walking all by himself now. Nobody with him and he shall
die alone as well nobody is going to be with him and he shall be resurrected by himself as an own category of people. Meaning Yeah, and he will have a status that nobody else will have that's his macom he will be by himself in his own group of people, well your shadow okay. So, meaning that something is different about a Buddha. And this is in fact exactly what was the case and now we get to the difference of the philosophy of a Buddha and what caused the problems between him and the rest of the Sahaba.
A Buddha he had a particular philosophy of life, he had a unique view of economics, let's say that were very different than anybody else. And to put it in a nutshell, he interpreted certain ayat and ahaadeeth to imply that it is how long how long for any Muslim to have more than what he needs for the day when he goes to sleep.
Let that sink in.
You understand how lifestyle a Buddha is going to live Okay. That is not allowed for a person to have more than
some say three Durham's I mean some really nominal amount like $10 $15 like he had some based on some ideas that mentioned certain figures or whatever, that he had this understanding. And for example, he quoted or on for this understanding, for example, in in Surah Toba, so Toba verse 34. Allah subhana wa tada says,
What levena Yokozuna, Zahava, wellfield butter, wala Yun, Fukuda sobre la he, for
those who hoard up golden silver and do not spend it in the way of a law. Give them the glad news, they're going to be in the fire of hell. Okay, so those who hoard up and do not spend. So a boozer interpreted this, that if I go to sleep, and I have my wallet full, I'm hoarding the money.
Right? If I go to sleep, and I have a bag of coins, then this is canoes, cans. And Allah explicitly says those who have guns, and don't spend in the way of Allah.
And so he believed that you must give to the Pokhara everything you have, other than anything less than a cleanse. That's because the cleanse is like a mini treasure, anything less than that, what does that mean? He tries it again, a few times, like basically, as I said, something that would be like $30 $40, something like this MLT derived it from his own way. And that was his philosophy. And he actually had a hadith as well, that, as I said, mentioned, and now the rest of the oma, how did they interpret these and ahaadeeth the rest of the oma interpreted all of these texts as those who hoard and don't pay zakat, then they will get this punishment.
And a Buddha didn't have this clause of those who pays the cat, a Buddha said those who hoard period, they will get the punishment, and the rest of the Sahaba all understood that these are Hadees and apply to the ones who do not pay the gods.
And if you pay your tickets, then it is hella. That's the purpose of Zipcar to make the rest of it hard for you. And this is the unanimous consensus of the rest of the Sahaba. Except for a Buddha, who derived his own economic philosophy By the way, just to footnote here, Angela because of this, in the 50s and 60s of our century or last century, when these new ideologies began to spread in the Arab world, socialism and Marxism and what not certain Arab philosophers said a Buddha is the first communist the holder opposite Avila.
Okay, you understand those who understand communism Karl Marx, then he's the first Marxist. Okay? sheer ludicrousness. I mean, that's when you want to, you're clutching at straws you want to read in your own philosophies and whatnot, but very famous people not going to mention them, but the Arabs would know their names. So, you know, the rocky in the coalmine, these types of people over the 50s and 60s, they began to see a Buddha as their leader and role model that a Buddha basically said, you know, governments and rich people, you know, no 1% of us I get into modern politics and Bernie Sanders But anyway, so, the The point is that they they read in their philosophy into who they are,
and they said that a Buddha was the first communist This is ridiculous, he's not a communist is nothing to do with communism. It's not about you know, joint welfare and and
ownership. But the point is that he had the simple philosophy, you cannot go to sleep with more than a few coins under your belt. So this is the philosophy of a Buddha. And by the way, it is interesting to note that because of this, our Prophet salallahu idea he was setting them explicitly told a Buddha, not to take charge of anything. It's one of those weird things without has been praised by the process of their authentic ID praising him. And there's another genre of Hadith that if you don't understand where this is coming from, you might think that the process is criticizing No. So with the processor is telling him don't become any political person. Don't take any
responsibility. You're not qualified for that. How could somebody who has this philosophy take charge of anything? And this is what's going to happen in the time of Earth man, that is going to come to a clash, okay, so
as for the praise, by the way, so the prophet of Islam
praised him as well, many times that famous Hadith and Sunnah tivity, where the prophets of Salaam said the trees have not sheltered nor have the sands dusted anyone who is more truthful than a Buddha, okay. The phrase the trees have not sheltered than the sun has not dusted is an Arabic phrase, there's nobody in the world with an English. There's nobody in the world who is more truthful than a Buddha is an honest man.
And he says what he believes he believes what he says, You're not going to find any double, you know, duplicity, and his honesty was too blunt for the later generation. 40 years later, 30 years later, that honesty is going to get him into trouble. That's what we're gonna see, the new converts are not going to be able to stand his Frank assessment of their lifestyles. That's what's going to happen later on. And it is also narrated in tertiary books with so this idea is infinity. And the more you know, tertiary books of Hadith, we also find that no one is closer to living a frugal life like Jesus than a Buddha. The Buddha is the closest to Jesus, when this is some ahaadeeth mentioned
is not the Kuta receptor, but tertiary books of Hadith. And there might be some slight issues with still the concept of without his living like Jesus lift.
And even if it might not be from the process of definitely, it is true as a lifestyle. That Buddha's lifestyle was as frugal and simple as some of the most simplest people that have ever walked on the face of this earth. So we have plenty of beheaded praising a Buddha. But we also have one or two a hadith that if you don't understand them, you might think they're criticizing but they're not criticizing the process of is just telling him, you're not fit for a particular role. This Hadith in Sahih, Muslim sign Muslim, the process of said yeah, better, oh, about your Buddha. Verily, it meaning leadership is their responsibility. And I see you to be weak. We're in Iraq, by Eva, I'll
explain this war in Iraq, a believer, so never ever take charge of anything, even over two people. Never take responsibility even over two people, meaning don't take any position of governorship of leadership over anything, and never take charge of an orphans property. Now, if you don't understand this Hadith, you would think that the process of missing a Buddha you're tempted by money your life without you might steal orphans money, without you might act volume. No, none of this is the exact opposite, is the exact opposite. You see, this is the importance of understanding context. Otherwise, if you took this heavy, literally, the assumption would be that the processor was
criticizing a Buddha. You're a weak man, I have to be honest with the first time I read these IDs, almost 15 years ago, as well as like, oh, wow, looks like there's a criticism, then you read the shadow or the the the explanations, and you realize it's the exact opposite. That the process of is saying or without, you might be a great an honest man, but essentially to be a leader. Your bluntness and philosophy is not going to work.
And what would you do with your philosophy with orphans properties?
A Buddha would give the orphans properties to other orphans or to other fahara because in his philosophy, the orphan can't go to sleep when he has an entire garden. Right? He's gonna have to give the whole garden away and give one meal to the orphan for that day. And that's it, the whole property is gone.
Right. This is why the process of is saying to a Buddha don't take charge of orphans property and don't take charge over other people. And this shows us as well. Leadership is a skill that requires more than just honesty.
Many Muslims have this naive understanding that if you're a good man, you can be a leader Not at all. Not at all. You can be a good man and a pathetic leader, you can be an honest man and a failure as a leader. Right? You can have certain good qualities, but not be qualified to lead. Because leadership requires other skill sets. It requires as well compromise. It requires a lot of things. And this is what the process of saying in America but if your skill set doesn't match that of a leader,
and you cannot take leadership roles, do everything else other than leadership. And we understand now if you understand the philosophy of why this is the case, you can have the most amount and taqwa and be the most righteous person. But that doesn't mean automatically you can be a good leader, because leadership has other skill sets. So without basically was told by the process of them never take any position of authority, because you will not be able to live up to that position, you're gonna fail not because you're a bad guy, but because you're too strict. And you have now he didn't say, your philosophy of economics, but that's what we understand when we look at his lifestyle. The
process of didn't explain why, but we understand when we see how he developed obviously, when the processor is alive, there there really the richness that occurs later on did not happen. Right. So without is not doing anything on the processor is alive. The Sahaba are even those that are rich, they're not flaunting their wealth, or whatever doesn't know they have riches, they're living their lifestyles, Earth man might have been a millionaire, but he's living like the earth man of pre Islam. Right? All of this is going to change in the time of earth.
And the Sahaba and especially the new converts, you understand what's going to happen when the wealth pours in. And this is the beginnings of the tension with without and the rest of the Sahaba without participated in the military expeditions against the Romans. Eventually he settled in Jerusalem in goods, he lived in quotes for a while he prayed and Mashallah Oxo. He lived under the reign of Ma, we're not the Mojave the halifa, Maui the governor, he's died, he's, he's gonna die in the reign of Earth man. He doesn't live to see Maui as the halifa, Maui as the governor, because while he was the governor of Sham, and it was in this time, where the people began to complain
against abuser. Why? Because abuser would criticize everybody who's flaunting his wealth.
And Buddha is one of the senior so how about one of the earliest converts, you can't say anything to him? And he would pray to the officer. And the people who described him said he would wear the same clothes every single day. And when somebody said to him, yeah, let me gift you something to where you are, Sahib rasulillah. Let me give you He said, this is all that I need. Go find somebody who needs it and give it to him. I don't need anything other than this. Okay? That's he literally had that one cloth he would wear day in and day out. And he's living the simplest lifestyle. And he would not. Even if somebody gave him something, he would give it to the poor immediately. So when he
sees the wealth come in and realize now imagine this is the Roman Empire that's been conquered. Imagine the treasures the palaces that now are under the the collapse of the Muslims. And the wealth is now pouring into the oma. And we'll talk about this next week and the week after that, that this is one of the reasons why the fitna is taking place that so much wealth and power is going to bring about, especially in the new Congress that are not Sahaba, some corruption, some desires and whatnot. So they're living a lifestyle that a Buddha cannot understand. And he criticizes them tells them this is either way jahannam tells them the level do this and that what's going to happen
complaints to the governor
while I was the governor,
wow, we are rhodiola. One, we get to the very controversial issue eventually as well. But
he as well is living a lifestyle that is not quite what we walk around or living. And there's nothing wrong with that it is halal.
We understand that is halal. Nothing, there's not a criticism. But while we're is not a worker, there is clearly no question about that. Maui is not Omar Maui is not a man was not only while we are the last one and he is so happy. But in the end of the day, he is definitely not of the highest levels of the Sahaba. He is of the last batches of Congress the conquest of Makkah. And yes Indeed, Allah has honored him to be one of the scribes of the process. And when we say nothing, except on the last one, we do not go to the extremes of those who say anything bad about him. At the same time. There is another side of Sunni Islam and and that side basically says he is in essence, they
him to a level that he is as if he's an oversharer. No, he's not. He is not to that level. And he is of the lower ranks of the Sahaba. So he said on the last one, and he is blessed to have seen the Prophet system and believed at his hands, but he's not a worker, as simple as that. And when a Buddha sees Malia's lifestyle, he's not going to remain quiet.
So muawiya gets very angry at a Buddha.
And they have a back and forth, and more outerwear. And the Buddha is senior to Maui and rank by many, many, many degrees. So, while we arrived to Earth man that I can't handle a Buddha, he's causing tensions, you know, this and that. So it's not now we're getting to the story of what's happening, right. This man then calls a Buddha to Medina, and says, come and live with us, Roman Empire, the Sham doesn't suit you, you're not going to be flourished there, come and live in Medina. But without returns to a Medina, that's very different than
the Medina of those days.
Now, Medina has been the capital for almost 20 years, this isn't the latter half of man's life, okay, this isn't the Medina of the time of the process of them. Now, money is pouring in. By the entire you know, the masjid is full of gold, at times we talked about this a number of times, the entire Masjid goes to the, to the top, coming in from all of the empires that have been conquered. And, as well, the Sahaba of Medina have left to other lands. So who's living in Medina, a new generation, not whether Yun and people have offered them a heads up, these are the new batches of converts, the next generation. And so without begins preaching his message to them.
And complaints go to a man that he's causing, basically,
his preaching is irritating some people you understand what's happening here, that he is speaking his mind. And he's speaking it everywhere, publicly, privately, in the masjid. Anybody who sees this, that's living a lifestyle in his, for his opinion, it is wrong, that you cannot eat and drink to this level while there are people that are hungry. Right? And so how difficult will it be for the rest of the people, when without who is senior to them is always reprimanding and rebuking and complaints come to now with man in Medina, against a Buddha, that it's getting a little bit difficult. So Earth man calls him to himself. And says, and this is the most authentic version of
events we're going to come to there are alternative versions.
The most authentic Version says, If you wish you can remain here. And if you wish, you can settle at a close by place to Medina.
And here is where I have to be honest. I mean, there are people that like to sugarcoat or whatnot, it's very clear that earthman is politely suggesting to a Buddha
that maybe city living is not for you.
That maybe it's not in your best interest to be in the city, getting too many complaints. And
if this is the way you feel, then maybe it's best for everybody that you go find a place to live and live close by so that you know you can find civilization and and food can come through and whatnot, but not necessarily with the rest of the people. And without seems to have gotten this hint. And he says In that case, allow me to live at a rubber and a rub there is a not a city that's the point. It's like a nobody lives there. But it is one of the what you what would you call a resting station transit point on the road from Iraq to Medina, closer to Medina. Okay. So, you know, there are highways, there are rest stops in our times, that's a good, good thing. Like we would fill up in our
gas and whatnot. Nobody lives there, but these are well known. rest stops. Okay. Rob, that was one of those rest stops, that everybody is going to camp there for a while, then move on. And if somebody lives there, then you're kind of in touch but not quite in touch. You're not in the middle of the desert. Even as you're in the middle of the desert, you get my point too, right. So up without himself said, allow me to move to a rather and live over there. And Earth man said, very well go live there. And you shall get you know, a stipend from us now pause here. I will but God had begun and then Omar had changed completely.
The notion that all of the senior Sahaba will get a regular salary.
Remember this, we talked about this right? That Abubakar, what was his philosophy? What was the salary? Everybody gets equal? How am I gonna change, decide who's better? Everybody gets an equal amount. Okay? And of course, this was decided based on those who converted in the time of the Prophet system that they have benefited Islam. Now they deserve to benefit. And Omar said, How can I equate the battery with the one who converted at the conquest of Makkah. And so when omark became califa, he had an entire hierarchy.
And the highest was on Mahajan mode, meaning
and then the earliest converts, and then so on and so forth. And then balloon and then whatnot. So he himself didn't get the highest or the second highest, he got the third highest. There were people higher than him.
And he got like the third which is the better you because he wasn't of the first batch. But a boozer had the first batch, the sixth convert to the fifth convert. Okay. So Obrador had a salary, and that was his salary. So Omar said, Don't worry, I will send it to you over there. And of course, I would not, would not keep that salary. Right. But he would get it from the the, the, the the offer, that what what he wants to do with it. That's not our business. In essence, what the mind is saying, that's not our business, but you're still going to get your stipend, right, and I will provide for you as well, meaning I'll send supplies to you. Okay. Now, this shows us that the later narrative,
that earthman, cut off a Buddha and rebuked him or much worse, we're going to see some of the groups accused a Buddha of having been whipped by with mud. This is all complete fabrication, rather, the brutally honest truth and I'm not somebody to sugarcoat the past. Clearly, Earth might have been often understood that a Buddha is best not living in society, his philosophy of living doesn't work in society. So he politely suggested he didn't force on him, politely suggested it's probably better, you go somewhere else, and Abu Dhabi chose where he was going to go. And that is a rub and rub there is now an hour and a half outside of millionaire by car. And by the way, his grave is
still at a rubber. Still, we know exactly where his grave is on the side of the road, literally on the side of the road. Now, of course, there's a mustard one over there, but it is on the side of the road, in a place called a rock there. So a Buddha went there and spent the last few years of his life with his wife and his daughter at this place of Roberta. And when he fell sick, and he realized he's about to die. He told his wife to perform his whistle and put the coffin on him after he dies. Because there is no man, there's no man, just his wife and his daughter to two women. That's it. And they cannot dig a grave. They cannot, you know, but they can wash him and they can put a coffin on
him. So he said, when I die, then put the coffin on me and pull my body outside onto the road, and just wait. And the first caravan that comes, tell them to pray janazah and dig my grave, and I'll be buried here. Okay. And that's exactly what happened. He died all by himself. His wife and daughter were there. No other man is there and his wife and daughter did the hosel and put the gun on him and they put the body outside and lo and behold, the same day, a caravan comes and who's in the caravan. And Ben Massoud is in the caravan.
Abdullah bin Massoud is in the caravan some Hello this is from Eliza widget right? Coming from Iraq to visit earthman on some business, and allies origins other that some of the greatest Sahaba they're still alive at this time. This is the 36th third sorry, the 32nd year of the digital he dies 32nd year of the digital that even Massoud passes him on the path and he sees a woman basically flagging him down with a body over there with a bizarre sight. Lo and behold, it is none other than a with a leaf at the caravan stops. They dig the grave and Ibn Massoud is the sixth convert. And Abu Dhabi is the fifth convert. Okay, so even Massoud prays janazah over a Buddha livadi. And if this
isn't covered, what is called and how can it be just out of nowhere? Even Massoud comes of the earliest batch and praise janazah. And he then quotes the Hadith of the process of them. Rahim Allah, whoever he or she had the who were the Who are your shadow. He says, I heard the process that I'm saying that may Allah have mercy and Buddha who live alone, die alone and be resurrected alone. So he quoted the Hadith at the death of Abu lfra. And to this day, his grave is on the place of a robber. Now what has this got to do with Earth man, somebody
years later, this incident is now put on the list of complaints by the instigators of the complaints against Earth man. And they claim that one of the things that they have in this list of around a dozen points which we'll come to next week, they say, Earth man, exiled abode are one of the senior Sahaba, one of the earliest converts and kicked him out of Medina.
And this is one of the complaints that they had. And we're going to come to this point next week as well. That Subhan Allah, Allah He, if you look at every single one of these criticisms, you really see how shallow their complaints were. And that the reason why they're rebelling is not the complaints. There are far bigger issues. And these complaints are absolutely shallow. None of them hold any legitimate merit. Firstly, what business is it of theirs? What happened with or without? Are they their relatives over without? Are they from the tribe of default? How are these people so riled up that they're demanding and protesting that Earth man resigned over something that has
nothing to do with them? Nothing to do with them, they are from Iraq and from other lands, and they're coming, complaining about a Buddha, ludicrous. And then secondly, the real story, as we said, was a lot more complicated. And each one of their criticisms he burned the most have we understood what he did? Okay. He exalt without each one of these criticisms is not even half a lie. One 10th of a lie, right? Sorry, not even half the truth, one 10th of a truth, like a little bit of truth, mixed with nine tenths falsehood, each one of these criticisms he ran away in
and what? And what, right, each one of these, didn't he right away? Well, yes, he did. But so each one of them, Yes, he did. But each one of these criticisms, and this shows you were lucky, you can be somebody as great as Earth man. And you have critics that are just absolutely blind, doesn't matter how good you are. Now, an interesting footnote to all of this. So again, so now you understand the criticism that they have about a Buddha. absolutely ludicrous, completely misplaced. That's the story of a Buddha. Now, here's the concluding footnote not related to Horace Mann. Yet it is related to a widower and it's interesting for us to to talk about
without as if it is considered to be one of the autocannon audibel.
The for our can, for the 12, or she, it is naturally the twelver Shia, and the twelver. Shia, as many of you know, they don't consider the Sahaba to have been rightly guided. But what many of you don't know is that they consider for Sahaba to be correct. And these are can
the four pillars
and some add a fifth and some say there were three primary ones, but the point is most mainstream 12 or say there were four pillars of early if that'd be solid, four of the Sahaba. So when we as suddenly say, the Sahaba sorry, the Shia I consider the Sahaba to be not rightly guided we should always add, except for a handful of them. Okay, except for a handful they consider to have been correct. Number one on the list of without RFID number one without RFID. Okay, number two, amar ebene acid
number three salmonella fallacy. And number four, I'll note that even amor, okay, now these three were not related to our talk, we'll talk about them when we get to their life's lives and why, why do they she I considered them to be rightly guided, a Buddha is the earliest of them to die.
And the irony of Buddha has nothing to do with
Ollie and Mao is worse. How can he when he's dead at the time, he has nothing to do with it and our issues issues? He's the earliest to die. So it is truly bizarre for us as Sudanese to understand why would they claim a Buddha to be
to be on their side, when in reality he didn't even see any of the fitness that happened later on. He's He's already gone at the end of command zero. He didn't even see Earth man's assassination but much less. I listen and while he has issues and an eyeshadow on right, why would they claim him who can guess?
Exactly, exactly. Because the people who rebelled against Earth man
are using him as one of the causes of rebelling and in opposition to atheism.
They read in support of it.
Even though there's absolutely nothing like this, right, you see my point here, in opposition to Earth man, they read in that he wasn't just opposed to the policies, he was also opposed to the caliphate of Earth man.
And from our perspective, from our perspective, this is simply reading in. And it is not something that there's any legitimacy to that, as well, then their version of history books, takes this to a whole different level. And it is their history books that mentioned that earthman publicly whipped up without, this is not found in any of our books at all. That earthman humiliated without that earthman exiled him by force. And this is not our narrative at all, our narrative, and, and here's the problem, we have, unfortunately, my opinion, some Sudanese that are so sensitive, they want to sugarcoat everything. And in the process, when you don't call a spade a spade, you don't mention the
truth, then the critics come along and point out that that's not true. And that's why I have never followed this philosophy, especially in the theater of the process of them. Honesty is always the best policy, no matter how awkward it is. And the fact of the matter that I have to believe very firmly looking at the text, that earthman rhodiola. One is suggesting to a Buddha, and what's wrong with that? Why would that be a problem? He is suggesting to a Buddha. That's the wording. If you want you to live here, and if you want, you can move somewhere else. And what do you get by that wording, other than a job without it might be in everybody's best interest if you move away, and
without got the hint? He's an intelligent man, he got the hint. What's wrong with that, in the end of the day, there has to be peace in Medina and in Jerusalem, and that without us philosophy of economics is not conducive to that type of peace.
He never he never he never was forced is the point. He was never exiled by force. He was simply suggested a course of option that would have brought about more peace and harmony and society. And guess what, that's exactly what happened. Now, this Colonel of events is taken by the rebels against Earth man to be one of the main causes that he mistreated the senior Sahaba Buddha, okay. And then the twelver Shia has also read in their narrative into a without that or without then becomes the right hand man of alley rhodiola one, even though that is historically implausible, because it is not doing anything at this time. It's too early. He didn't fight on the side of it against anybody,
right. But it fits into their narrative perfectly. And that is why they then backtrack where they read in without as being a pro tertiary, that somebody who supported the debate against Earth man, and then they even say against Omar and a worker, even though he doesn't have any role to play and welcome rumors time, and therefore they then have this narrative that earthman whipped up without an earthman exiled him humiliated him curse Tim did that. And this is mentioned by one of their most famous theologians, even metalhead Haley, who was a contemporary had been Tamia and had been Tamia wrote a massive volume called min Hutchison the number we attend volume book, which is one of the
most comprehensive critiques of twelver Shiism, from any Sunni Imam, and even Tamia takes destroy without as well it's been well thought he was the one who says that, how can you respect Earth man? So he's quoting this criticism? How can you respect Earth man, when he did this to a widower and he did that to a Buddha. And even to me, it takes the sense that this is complete fabrication, he didn't do any of this to a Buddha. And all that he did was he suggested to him to move outside the city. And inshallah with this, we finish the story of without elefante and the criticisms of earthman. And as I said, I wanted to do this separately, because it actually makes more sense, we
kill two birds with one stone. If I had done just the criticism, you wouldn't have understood then I'd have to come back at a later date, and do the whole life of a widower. And then so I thought, you know what, let me just do this. And in sha Allah was a very interesting tangent. Even though it's related to the story of Earth, man, you see, my pointer is shot. Okay, so inshallah next Wednesday, we will then return to the actual story with Manuel de la one, and then talk about the other complaints and criticisms. And most importantly, next week, we will begin talking about a lot of people don't understand, why is this happening? Forget the actual criticisms. Why are so many
people rebelling? There are causes for that. Each one of the criticisms is so superficial, even a basic student of Islamic history can say that's ridiculous. Like I just said, without under If man I mean, the Koran and the most basic student. So what's going on? That's what we'll discuss a shallow Tyler next week. The honor
underlying causes, the mentality, the psychology, the social problems, because of which these harebrained excuses are being discovered, and earthman is being taken as the scapegoat. Next week, inshallah we'll talk about that. And then we'll jump to the specific points of criticism that they had. We've already mentioned, three main ones, right? Number one is the burning of the most have done, we don't have to go back to that. Number two is fleeing at,
done, we don't have to go back to that. And number three is a Buddha, another six or seven will mention and explain. And you will see how shallow each one is. And then we'll also not next week, but the week after that is shallow data. The week after that a shallow data, we will also then get into the details of the the the day and the siege of 3040 days and then the data is mine even I found on the other hand, so we haven't shot another, at least two, maybe three, but inshallah we'll try to finish to have recommand into any questions about it for today. Yes.
Without RFID remain there for at least two years, at least two years. And as far as we know, there were no complaints during his lifetime that because it was not an exile, he was free to come back. He is choosing to live elsewhere. So how can anybody complain? It is his own choice, he chose the location and he is content and where he is living. So we do not know of any criticisms in his lifetime. Once again, these are people that are coming towards the end of man's radar for four years later, and trying to hunt for excuses. And then one of the excuses which is the one of the main ones is a Buddha was exiled by you.
And that's not the case as we said shallow.
Shallow with that we will stop for today and then recurrent continuous all the next Wednesday is Aqua locker Somali
