Sandman FRC. So Madden fantasy. What was his story said Madden fantasy was the son of the fire keeper. So his father taught him how to keep the fire going and whatnot. So he would go and take care of the fire and come back home. That's his job. That's that they are priests of the fire. There are priests of the Zoroastrian or the Medusa as we call them. So somehow Farsi would go to the the fire and keep on lighting it up. He said, and he's narrating destroy his himself. He said, on the way there on the road there, there was a monk who had his small monastery, you know, the monks had a little cave, they have a monastery, and he would be worshipping, singing his hymns praying all day,

00:01:08--> 00:01:54

and all night. And it intrigued me that this person has a different religion. And I pass by every day and I listened to his hymns. I listened to his chantings. So and it was mesmerizing, and it attracted me. So one day, I had the guts, the guts to basically go and ask him, can you tell me about your religion? And so the monk began to preach Christianity to Solomon and Pharisees. And slowly but surely, semana Farsi realized that what he's doing is idolatry. And what the monk has is a version of though he then worship Allah and whatnot. So he became attracted to Christianity, and he secretly converted, he secretly converted. When his father found out his father locked him up

00:01:54--> 00:02:35

with chains, prevented him from leaving the house tortured him, because he's the priest, how can your own son convert to so it's a big matter of shame, and attempted to exterminate him. So Sandman and Farsi managed to escape from his own house and run away to Syria, which is the land of Christianity. And the monk had already taught the market and executed because he converted the son of the priest, so they killed the monk, but the monk had told him that go to such and such a monastery, and you will find people of my thought, so Sal manifests, he went there. And then to make a long story short, every time he went, he became the disciple, the main disciple of the monk. And

00:02:35--> 00:02:53

the monk taught him how to worship, he remained a Christian, when each one died, he would tell him to go to another one. And this happened four times, when each one died, he was okay, now you go to this guy. So he went to that. And he went to when he came to the fourth one, when the fourth one is about to die, listen to what he says. He says,

00:02:54--> 00:03:46

that my companions who sent you eventually all over to me, my group of people, I don't know anybody remaining upon that understanding of Christianity. We're all gone. Now. This was the group that we had. But I don't know anybody left upon our understanding of Christianity. But you have come to a time when the promised one is about to come. What did they tell him? They said, you're just about to come to the time when the man that Jesus Christ predicted is about to come, we know it, the signs have been met. What are the signs we don't know? But these people knew. So they're telling sell man, the signs have all come and his time is just around the corner. So he told him man, my advice to you

00:03:46--> 00:04:07

is you go seek this man out. Go seek this profit out. How where am I going to go? I will tell you three signs. I will tell you three signs. Number one, he shall appear in a land that is full of dates. First sign go to the land that is known for dates. Number two,

00:04:08--> 00:04:37

key will have a physical mark on his back in Arabic we call hot demand and you know, the hotter the seal the prophecy. I'll talk about this inshallah. later on. This is the second sign number three. He said that this man will accept gifts, but he's never going to accept charity. He will accept gifts but he will never accept charity. Sandman asked his shirt died, his teacher died. This is the fourth shift now from his eyes so we can imagine. You know he's already probably around 50 years old at this time.

00:04:38--> 00:04:46

So he asked what is the land that is the most well known for producing dates. He asks in Syria, he is told the land of

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

cyber

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

hyper hyper which is close to yesterday. So he asks around who amongst you is going to hyper How can I go to hyper so he is told there are Arab

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

caravans that trade in Damascus here, get one of the caravans and go to Haifa. Now salmaan is a monk, he's a priest. He has no money. He has no prestige. He has no clan. He has no society. And so he says to a group of arrow traders, are you going to hyper they said, Yes, we're going to hyper come with us. When they came when he joined their caravan, they kidnapped him, meaning they they took him as a slave. So sell man is taken as a slave. And instead of ending up in high bar, he is sold to a group of you who who happen to live in yesterday, which is later to be called Medina because he had that sincerity. And so for decades, he toiled in Medina, as a slave as a 70 year old

00:05:41--> 00:05:49

man's panela, as a slave, he was toiling in Medina, and rumors began to spread of a man claiming to be a prophet.

00:05:50--> 00:06:28

And rumors began to spread that he's immigrating to Medina. And they began to be worried and trepidation because they thought this is the king of the Arabs, who's coming. And when the king of the Arabs come, then we're in trouble. And salmaan he tells us a story that he was collecting dates from the top of the tree. And he heard his master speak with his brother, the master and his brother, that the king of the Arabs has arrived. This is the first digital, the first day of the age of the king of the Arabs has arrived. This has been waiting for for the last 20 years, he literally jumps down and he runs to his master and says, what happened? Did he come? Did he come? And the

00:06:28--> 00:07:08

master slaps him across the head and says, Go back to your work. What are you worried about? You're a slave, get back to your work. So Sandman goes back finishes what he's doing, when he finishes the chores that are assigned to him, he takes some of his dates, which was his own food. And he comes to the process. And this is on the second third day that he's in Medina. And he says that I heard that you're a stranger in this town. Here is some charity for you, puts it in front. So the Profit System tells us to have a kulu eat, but he doesn't eat anything. The second day after his chores are over, he brings another plate and he says,

00:07:09--> 00:07:56

today I have come with you with some date. And this is a gift to you. So the Prophet system tells us to have a kulu but he eats as well. So Selma, now his heart is racing. This is a land of dates. He's You know, one sign has been met. Now, what do I do to get to the third sign? So he stands up, and he goes behind the process and trying to take a peek, if he can look into his shirt to see what he can do. And when this old man goes behind the profits, and starts peering and peeking the process of understood, so he unbuttoned his shirt, and he lowered it, lowered it behind his back to literally show him the, the the pigeon mark the hotton. And when Sandman saw this, he began crying and he

00:07:56--> 00:08:15

began wailing and screaming, he came in he kissed the hands and the feet of the profitsystem and he told him his whole story. And the Prophet says Adam said we must help you for your freedom. And the the people put in a ridiculous price on him when they knew the process and wanted him they said you must give us I forgot No Is that 150?

00:08:16--> 00:08:45

dates 150 day trees, they trees. Someone says Where can I get 150 day trees from so the process said next time is the season to plant the seeds call me. So the profitsystem came with his own hands. He planted 100 150 of those those trees and within a year there was full tree so here's your here's your ransom sermon you're free. And Simon became a free Muslim by because the prophets have been paid for his ransom through that Baraka

00:08:47--> 00:08:48
