In this video by Shaykh yasir Qadhi, we get acquainted with the Hijrah – Emigration to Madinah and its various facets. The incident of Hijrah is difficult to chronologically assimilate and hence, we rely on authentic sources to make a chain of events as they unfolded.
The Prophet ﷺ was among the final people to emigrate to Madinah. The actual Hijrah took place on Monday, 26th Safar of the 13th year of the Dawah which tallies with the 1st year of the Hijrah.What happened on the day? What made the Prophet ﷺ think of taking this step? Who accompanied him on this Hijrah? It was the good fortune of Abu Bakr As Siddiq RA to have the coveted honour and privilege. When our beloved Prophet ﷺ received permission to take Abu Bakr RA , it was only then that he was given the nod to accompany him.
Abu Bakr RA had a plan on how to undergo this important journey. Abu Bakr RA planned to stay in the cave for three nights and appointed three people to manage three tasks. The first was his son Abdullah whose job was to supply them food and drink inside the cave and gave information about the people of Mecca and the whereabouts of the expeditions to track them down. The second person was Amr ibn Hufayra who was a freed slave and he had to make sure the footsteps of Abdullah ibn Abu Bakr are wiped away. The third man was Abdullah ibn Arkat and he was given the job to lead them to Madinah through a secret passage.
What were the happenings in the cave of Thawr? Listen intently and get mesmerised by the ways in which Allah SWT showers his rahmah on his beloved people.
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was salam wa shawfield mursaleen Muhammad Anwar Ali he was a big marine about. We were discussing the stories of the Sierra and we're trying to lay the foundations for the actual theater of the Prophet, the hatred of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we discussed many of the other hedgerows that took place. And the point that we need to underscore the Prophet system was really one of the last, if not the last adult Muslim to emigrate to Medina, the only people left after the Prophet system, or some of the women and children such as the family of Abu Bakar, such as Ali, and otherwise, basically all of the adults had migrated
before, and there's only one story left before we get to the actual story of the Prophet system. And that is the story of Roma hottub, which is a very brief story and it shows the bravery of Omar and the, the the methodology that had to be thought of narrates that I don't know of anybody who did the hedgerow publicly, except for Omar. I don't know of anybody who did the hegira publicly, except for Mr. Everybody was sneaking away everybody was doing it in the middle of the night. Except for Mr. Manohar, Bob, he was the only Muslim to do the hijab and make it public. He packed his bags, he armed himself and wore his shield and his arrows and everything. And he went to the carpet and did
the last seven times. And he's dressed as a traveler, he's prepared as a traveler. And then he makes a public announcement, or people of Mecca.
Whoever amongst you wishes that his mother lose him tonight,
or that his children become orphans, or that his wife becomes a widow, then know that I'm performing the hijra, and you can meet me outside of Mecca and such and such a valley. This is the only person who performed digital making it public. And of course, nobody took up Roman on that challenge. And this again shows us the status of our mode, and this is why our profits are made Dora Allahumma is an Islamic habit. Romani like that, oh, Allah bless Islam, with the more beloved of the rumors to you, the other one was being a Buddha, because his name was also humble. And so I'm a type of role model, one of the means of ways of saying, aroma Xamarin and Android, and Android all of these from
the same root of angle, and aroma. And so the process of said bless Islam with one of the two rumors who is more beloved to you, and so Allah azza wa jal loved or whatever.
And Abu Jihad has a different fate as we know. So this is the final story that we have of the hedgerows of the other Sahaba and I mentioned the rest of them before so haber Rumi, and Ayesha Robbie and set them up in a sham. I mentioned all of them last week. And so we now get to the actual hero of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And, as usual, we need to piece together the incident of the hedgerow for many different stories again, one of the problems of the Sierra is that the Sierra is not written down. In one story, we have different reports just like we have for Israel and methodologists like we have for butter, we need to piece together the puzzle. So we have a
number of stories. The first of them, the most authentic of them are Isha narrating and Sahih Bukhari, the first person Aisha narrating her memories of the hedgehog, as a young girl I shared this time is around six or seven years old. So this is basically her first memories of Islam. And our issue of the Allahu Allah says and the Hadith is in Mohali, so it's fully authentic. I don't remember any day except that my parents were Muslims, ie as far back as I can remember, my parents were Muslims. So our issue obviously was born and Abu Bakar was already a Muslim at the time, right. Isha is born into Booker's already a Muslim, and she is the younger of the two a smart bintelli
bucket is older. And as smart has a different mother. And as smart as mother was not a Muslim, she was in which she looks obok are divorced her a walker divorced a smas mother, and he married his mother. And so I she says, I don't remember a day, except that both of my parents were upon the religion of Islam. And I don't remember any day except that the Prophet system would come visiting us in our house. So her earliest memories every day, Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is coming to us, sometimes in the morning and in the evening. And then he narrates that when the Prophet system was given the permission to migrate, and he told the Muslims to migrate, Abu Bakar prepared a Campbell
to migrate to Medina and he asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for permission, every Muslim asked the process of
permission for everything that he did. And the profitsystem said, wait for, I hope that Allah Subhana Allah will give us permission. I hope that Allah subhana wa tada will give us permission for in the origin, your identity, meaning I waiting for a lot to give us this permission. So Abu Bakar understood that the permission that the Prophet system is waiting for his permission for him to accompany the prophet SAW Selim on the hedgehog.
And so when a worker heard this, he asked a Sahaba rasulillah. Are you hoping for my companionship? Meaning Can I be with you? Is that what you're hoping for? And so the profitsystem said, Yes, this is what I'm hoping for. And this shows us as well that the profitsystem never did anything except with the permission of Allah. And after asking Allah, the Prophet says, am did not undertake any major decision without getting permission from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so everybody is allowed to emigrate, but he's not migrating. Why? Because Allah did not tell him to do so yet. So he says, Wait a worker, I hope that perhaps you might be given permission. So when Abu Bakar heard this, he
prepared to Campbell's instead of one. He prepared to Campbell's. What does it mean to prepare a camel, you all know that a camel is the ship of the desert, you all know that a camel is able to carry its food and its water on its back, right. But in order to do so you need to feed the Campbell special diet, and you need to cause it to drink extra water. And you actually have to give it salt in order to cause it to drink water, believe it or not, obviously, you have to give the Campbell's salt. So you force it to drink water. So you prepare it for a few weeks, and then the hump appears. You give it a special type of diet, you keep it locked up so that it doesn't burn as fat. And you
just feed it, feed it feed it and you give it water and it will have that extra hump on his back. So this is what I will look at is saying I'm preparing two camels when the process of them said this, I prepared two camels. And he said I did this for four months. Now, scholars say this might be like a little bit of exaggeration, because it's actually been three and a half months. So he's making it up to four. Right? So because we're in the process of told the people to emigrate, and then when he emigrated, this is
an interim of three and a half months. So he's just rounding up, as we say, not exaggeration, but rounding up not three and a half, but rather, four months. And this took place in the head of the 13th year of the mission, the head of the 13th year of the of the
To be more precise. Okay, there's the more precise the 12th year of the prophetic message and the month of the hedger and then moharram, it becomes a 13th year, right? Because Mohammed's when we begin the year, so in the Mohammed, I'm of the 13th. And then the suffer, the Prophet says, according to our best estimates, he didn't say this. It's not in any deed, but we're trying to estimate, according to our best estimates, how do we estimate, we know a number of details, we know that he was the last to emigrate, we know that he emigrated on a Monday, because they've been at birth as a Muslim, that the prophecies are reported that on Monday, if crop was revealed to me, I
became a prophet. And on Monday, I was born. And on Monday, I emigrated. So Monday is a day all of these things occurred. So looking back at the calendars that we are able to derive, we see which of these days corresponds to a number of facts. And the closest date that some of our modern researchers have have developed is the 26th of Safar, the 26th of sofar. In the 13th year of the data, this would basically be the first year of the intro, right? Because the hatred actually occurred in software and not in whatever. And I mentioned in other places in the book, why the Sahaba chose Muharram to mark the beginning of the calendar that has nothing to do with the Prophet
system, it has to do something else. So we'll have some of that year then suffer the 26th of suffer the Prophet says Adam actually emigrated. What happened on that day in the daytime, in the daytime of the Monday,
our issues narrating the same Hadith, that when we were sitting in our house, at the peak of the heat of the day, at noon time, should that over here, it's a hot day. And in Arabia, in fact, in every hot climate in Spain is one example of this. They have the siesta and all of this in every hot climate. In the middle of the day, everything just shuts down. And people just take a nap because there's nothing else they can do. It's too hot to go outside. So I alluded to siesta, you take a nap. This is a culture that not only did our Profit System find he encouraged it, and he encouraged the Muslims to take this afternoon nap. And everybody knows scientists, doctors, they all tell us Do
you take this nap?
It makes you energetic and it makes you better prepped for the day to have a little nap in the afternoon. So the processor advised us and encouraged us to have this afternoon nap. So this was the time in this nap time, where our issue says that in the in the shed that said how in the hot time of the day, we saw a finger approaching, and the streets were deserted, nobody's there, and the finger had wrapped his turban around his head on his coat. It's like the man who wraps the turban around his face, you cannot see him until we recognize from the distance that it is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now obviously, when you know somebody very well, even if they cover their face, you
can recognize from the body from even the job, anything you can recognize this is that particular person. And so we said, well law, he the only reason he must be coming into something very grave to have occurred. This is an emergency. Nobody comes at this time for something very grave to have occurred. So the Prophet system asked permission to come in Abu Bakar granted to him and he said, remove everybody from the room. Now in those days, the houses were not divided into different rooms. They were divided into compartments, or gerat. The houses didn't have these massive mansions as we do you walk in here and there rather you build a house. And then you would have chambers, you would
have curtains that would have private rooms in it. Right? So the profitsystem does not know who's inside these rooms. So he tells Abu Bakar get everybody else out. Whoever whatever woman is here, get her out. And Abu Bakar said Yasuda law, they are about your family. That's it. ie our Isha and her sister that's all there was there. And of course, I should have already been engaged to the Prophet says that the Nika had been done and the conservation had not yet occurred. So the nicca has already taken place and and a worker says Yasuda is only your family. Nobody else is here. And so I she is narrating first person she's hearing from behind the curtains. She's hearing because she's in
the house. So I chose narrating first person, the story. And so, boubakeur says there's only there's only your family here meaning Asian and smart. And so the Prophet says to them said Allah has given me permission to emigrate. Allah has given me permission to emigrate. Now a worker was waiting for permission to come to him as well. And so he asked him, you know, sudo, Samba, or messenger, voila, did a lot. Allow me to be the companion, Yasuda Samba, the OB enter only I beg you, bye. Bye. My mother and father did a lot give this permission. And the prophets Allah sent him said Nam, yes, the permission has been given for you to accompany me. He says this, it says in Bahati. And this edition
is an urbanist haka. Isha says that I saw a boubakeur cry.
And I had never believed that people could cry out of happiness, until I saw aboubaker cry out of happiness on that day. I should say, I never believed that people cried when they got happy. Crying is something you do when you're sad. When you're worried when you're distressed. I just as I never believed that people could cry when they're happy, until I saw my own father. abubaker cry when the permission was given to migrate with the Prophet sallallahu it he was setting up. And so the prophet SAW said I'm told abubaker that he was going to migrate with him. Abu Bakar said, Yeah, rasulillah I have prepared to Campbell's one of them is yours. Some handle the process of did not have a camel,
even in Mecca. He didn't have a camel, I have prepared two camels, one of them is yours. And the Prophet has sort of said ilab is seven. Only if I pay you the price of the camel to becomes mine. I'm not going to take it as a free gift. I'm not going to take it as a freebie, Pamela, why? Because this is of the perfection of his manners. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the perfection of his manners, even though he's Rasulullah. He doesn't take advantage and flouted do this and do that. Until I pay its price, then I'll take it from you. And also because he wanted the full reward of doing the hijab, because as we all know, if you help somebody doing some good deed, what happens,
you get a share. And so the Prophet says, What's the full reward, I'm going to pay for it myself. And I'm going to migrate on the capital that I own. And so I will work realistically forced to take a sample of the Profit System to give him that camel and a smart, who is Irish, his older sister is just too young to do anything. And a smart is at least 15 years older than her 10 to 15 years older than us is basically going to adult adult already. And our issue is a little girl she cannot prepare anything. So a smart had already prepared food and reserves for them. And so, in the Panic of the moment, she bundled up all of the food and she didn't have anything to tie the bag with. And so she
took off her belt
And in those days the belt is nothing other than some, you know, grope or something she took off her own belt and tore it in half with her teeth and used half of a belt for her own garment and then use the other half for the bag of the profitsystem and Abu Bakar and that is why she was called that one little pain she have the two dots this is this is the luck of this is the title. If anybody says Who is she of the two belts. This is the title that was given to a smart man to be buckled because of this incident that she took off her own belt, cut it in half and then she just used half of it to try to keep her own
blouse and skirt on and the rest of it she used for the food of the Prophet salallahu it he was selling them and Abubakar had at this point in time 5000. Durham's and it is half Mary's that went back and accepted Islam. He was a wealthy man who had 40,000 Durham's, and by the time he emigrated, 35,000 of them had been gone for what, for saving people like VLAN for basically purchasing almost every single slave he could find in Makkah that was being persecuted. He spent 90% of his wealth completely for the sake of Islam. And when he emigrated, he took the entire amount with him $5,000 homes he took with him and side tangent here but when he took this amount,
workers father Abou kochava and Abou kochava did not accept Islam until after the conquest of Mecca. waka hoffa was an open enemy, a sarcastic enemy, in that he always mocked his own son, how could you have accepted the fate of this man, and he was already a bitter old man, he was a blind old man who had a sharp tongue already had a sharp tongue and a half a when a walker left with the process, and we're jumping the gun but just to tell the story I will offer came to a smart
mocking aboubaker for having abandoned the two little girls without any money. What type of father is this? He has left you with no money. He had all of this wealth. He's taken it all for his companion has left nothing for you. And so a smart super Look at her Amanda and her intelligence and he's a he's a blind man, a smart took the money George wasn't a George was the sackcloth that a worker kept his money in and quickly picked up some pebbles and threw them in there and wrapped the money jar in some more cloth and said, No, my grandfather, he has left us some money here Look, and she gave him the bag that worker kept for his money. So you know, this is the bag that is the money
back. And so he felt it. And he felt it a heavy amount, right? So he said, Okay, I'm mistaken. If this is what he has left for you, then there is nothing to blame. Even though a smart says he didn't leave us a penny. Why? Because he wants every penny for the processor setup. And he expects somebody will give them food and water and they're not going to starve to death in Makkah, they're not in the middle of the desert, there are people that are going to give them the basic to live, we are going in the middle of the desert, we don't know where we're going to need this money, who we're going to have to pay off. So he took every last dinner home that he had, and he left nothing with a smile and
an Asia and of course Allah took care of them and eventually they made their way to Medina. Now there is a this is the version of body and the version of body is as always body's versions are always the most concise, the least detailed.
You want the juicy details you need to go to the other books. And the problem with the other books is many times they don't have authentic is nuts. Right? So as we said many times over and over again, these types of traditions, no problem and narrating them but we should sift through that which we know as a fact verses that whose is not might be slightly weak. When we turn to Mr. Demon,
we have a hadith that gives us a little bit more description about what happened on that particular night. And even Abbas says Allah revealed in the Oran one ayah describing that night the night of the Hydra, and that is suited and filed verse 30 suited and filed verse 30. Even above said, this is an ayah that talks about the hedgerow what is suited and file verse 30. What is young Kuru bacala Dena cafaro Youth be Touka Haruka o yaku. William Coronavirus Allahu Allah Hyrule marketing. When the people who disbelieved plotted secretly to either try to imprison you lose the Touka
juca or to exile you
to do or to kill you.
When they plotted secretly to do one of these three things, and Allah azza wa jal plotted and they plotted and Allah is the blessed best of those who plan so
ABA says this ayah talks about that night, what happened that night, they came together in da da, da, da, da da da da was their parliament. And they came together in the middle of the night, there was a secret meeting. And representatives from all of the tribes have the courage came except for the new hardship, except for the new hardship, but the new hardship did not come. They weren't invited, and so will not have was not invited for this meeting. Because it would have been a conflict of interest, even though his heart would have been with them. His presence would have jeopardized it. This is a bit deep here, think about this. They intentionally left Abu Abu lahab out
of the meeting. Why? Because they were planning to harm one of his relatives, immediate relatives, his nephew, and no matter how much Abu lahab wouldn't have minded that he couldn't have officially given the green light for that. As they say ignorance is bliss, right? So if Abu lahab didn't know, Abu lahab doesn't have to answer,
even though they knew that his heart would have been with them. You guys following this point here, right? Is that very crafty of them to leave a Bula hub out, they know exactly what they're doing. And they also left out another very important figure. And that is multimillion ID, who is motivated ID motor living ID is the one who's basically allowed the Profit System to remain in Mecca.
It's his protection, not abou labs, they've left him out because once again volterman has given his word, and he cannot take it back in a private meeting. Right. And this shows us despite their evil and conniving there is some sense of dignity. There is some sense that we cannot invite these two people, even though they're pagans are not Muslims. But Muslim has given his word. Right, he is the one with the passport, if you like the visa is far more time than I'm giving you protection. So they can't invite Muslim to the meeting. Right? And a Buddha have no matter how much he hates his own nephew. And he was he's even withdrawn his protection. But Abu lahab cannot get his hands guilty
with the blood. Because that would be something that forget he doesn't care. But it's it's embarrassing for the public. Not that he loves this nephew. He doesn't at all right? If he had his way he would have been killed long time ago. But it's a matter of tribal honor. It's a matter of the the customs of the time, how could Abu lahab allow his own nephew to get killed knowingly, this would have been ashamed for as long as he lived. So he also was not invited, who was invited the rest of the seniors and the elders. And in one, so basically, the descendants of abdomen of the descendants of side defenders of other sub tribes have the courage not to buy new Hashem, and not
even ID. And it is also said in a narration that has a slight missing link in it. patata who's a tablet inherits from from this time, and he never saw this time, there's a missing link that an old man came knocking on the door in the middle of the night. I mean, this is a secret meeting, nobody's supposed to know about it. And when they open the door, they saw a man they could not recognize who he was they said Who are you, he said, I am a leader from the nudged. I'm not from here, I'm the leader from the nudge. And it has reached me that you're having a meeting and allow me to come perhaps I can benefit you with my wisdom about what you're planning to do. And even above says this
was shape one, this was shape on who wanted to seal the plot, make sure that the actual plot that was done was that of assassination. When they came together, they began talking to one another and they said
the Muslims have now migrated to another land. And we are scared if we allow this man to leave, they will become a political threat to America. Because again, up until now, the Muslims have been in their control. Up until now they've all been in Makkah. Now everybody has migrated. They all know that one person is left that's the Prophet system with Abu Bakar. Everybody else has gone. So they have a meeting the very night before they hit the very night before the immigration, they have a meeting and they say we need to do something. now realize the hedgerow was because of this meeting, right? The history of the timing of the hijra was because of this meeting, because they plotted a
lot as the original plotted. That's what allies saying. So they came together on that night. And they gave some suggestions. The first suggestion, let's imprison him in a house. Now there's no such thing really as a prison in Arabia at the time. They didn't have a concept of a prison. And if they had to imprison somebody, it was an exceptional thing. It was not the concept of putting somebody in jail was not known to the early Muslims or to the Arabs. And if you think about it's a very inhumane concept to lock somebody up for 20 years in room. This was not known to the Arabs. So they said let's basically put a house and put him into that house. And this is what Allah is saying. Luth
Viduka, they want to tell you
You up, put you down. And the old man basically a police said if you were to do this his words was still reaches followers.
People would smuggle out the Koran and whatnot to his followers. It's not good enough plot. Another said, let us send him into exile. Oh you Joker Allah says no Koran, whether send him into exile at least he'll be rid of us here in Makkah. Again, it believes said sending him into exile is to send him back to his followers. It will strengthen them rather than weaken them. You can't eliminate you can't get rid of him. And here is where Abuja has, of course, was in the audience, and Abuja has said, You still haven't said the point that is on everybody's mind, but they're scared to say it.
Every one of you is thinking this, but nobody has the guts to come and say it. Well, let me say Abuja
Why don't we kill him.
But now the problem would come. And I've said this many times before, it's a matter of honor for the Arabs, it's a matter of law, that you don't kill one of your own. It's something that they have never done before. You don't kill one of your own in cold blood. This is something that is it's something that for them, it would be a mark of humiliation, it would be something their enemies would criticize. For the rest of the correlation is lies. They be criticizing this right. So abou Jahan said, but we'll do this in a way that nobody can get angry at any one tribe. And this was the dastard plot of Abuja. Abuja have said, rather than one of us attack him, why not every single tribe
sends one representative.
And they fight him like one man, such that by the time he's dead, their blood, his blood is on all of their swords, so nobody knows who killed him. And all of the tribes are equally to blame. If we do this, no one tribe can be made fun of because they're all guilty, at least the ones in the room, the tribes that were in the room, and he said that Banu Hashim will have no choice but to accept the blood money. Otherwise, the battle harsh would have had to declare war. You see, this is again, tribal honor, has nothing to do with the fact they love where they hate this man. It's tribal honor, it's gang mentality. You harm my gang, I have to kill one of your gang, you kill me, we're gonna
kill you back. It's gang mentality. So the Bible Hashem. If any other tribe had attacked them, the bad Ohashi would have had to declare war until they killed a good amount of the other enemy. And then they said, Okay, this is the sauce. Now, if all of the tribes in Makkah, and in the surrounding regions equally participate, the Bible, Hashem cannot declare war against all of them. So what are they going to have to do, they're going to have to accept the blood money, the idea, and the concept of blood money, and the sauce was pre Islamic Islam came and gave it some rules are wanting, but the concept of having blood money there. And the concept of having because it is pre Islamic Islam, fine
tuned it and made it precise. And so they had this notion of blood money. So the Buddha has said, if we do this, W, Hashem will have no alternative except to take the blood money and power loss, it will be a done deal. This was one of these stood up and said, this is this is the sad This is the smart decision. This is the intelligent decision, that there is no other decision to take other than this one. And this was therefore what they all plotted to do. And right then, and there, every one of the tribes people thought of one person in their tribe, the young, strong man whom they could choose for this deed. And they sent them immediately to the house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam, and this was when jabril came down to the Prophet system, and informed him that you must make the hedgerow now. So this was on the same evening that he spoken to Abu Bakar, the same evening, he does not know what's happening, but God comes and tells him you need to leave right now. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala informed him of that plot, and even his hoc reports without any estate. And so there's no it's not at all but this is the famous report that we all know
that as they surrounded the house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet says Adam, went outside reciting surah t as seen reciting surah. Yaseen, and they did not recognize him or they did not see him at all, because a lot of zoa just says what Javelin would add him said to him said then for O'Shea now homophone, now you will soon we put barriers in front of them and behind them, so we cause them to go blind, or recovered them up and they couldn't see anything. And so the Prophet says and recited to us in the first verses, and they were blinded to his promise.
They didn't see a thing. And even his health mentioned that he threw dust on their hair. He threw dust on their hair as a sign of humiliation. Like it's something that is disgusting. Even if one of us has dust on us, we don't like it, right? So he threw dust on every one of them as he walked out. And they didn't even see this until after he had left until after he had left. And it is said that at the time, he was still living in the house of Khadija, of course, because Khadija has passed away, so he's living in the house. And with him is of course it because he's supposed to be taking care of it. And he grew up in the household of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Ali at
this stage. It is a young boy at the time. It is a young boy at the time. He's a teenager. He's a young man, he is a teenager, because it has been a Muslim since he was around seven, eight years old. So is around 19 1819. Now at this time, he is a young man at this time, and it was told to remain behind in the bed of the prophets of the law. Why do you send them you know, they didn't have closed windows, you know, for them. There's this opening there, you look inside, and you will see the people inside the house. And so he told it to stay in his bed so that if the kurush looked in, they would find somebody lying there, and it's dark, nobody sees who it is, they would assume that
this was the Prophet salallahu idea he would send them all of this this details of the story. It is found in the business half of it without any it's not. So there is not one or 2% authenticity, but at the same time. There's nothing wrong with affirming these, these stories. Now, Abu Bakar rhodiola one had already prepared the two camels. The Prophet system came to the house of Arbuckle, in the middle of the night, the two of them in the middle of the night, rode their camels and they went to as we all know, the Cave of soul hardy soul. Now, Laurie thole is very interesting, because it is in the exact opposite direction that Medina is Medina is due north straight line.
What he thought is due south exact opposite, you literally are turning your back to Medina and walking away to get to hospital, literally. And it's a two and a half, three hour walk from Mecca. And so they had already devised the plot a plan to go to this cave, and stay there for three days and three nights and utmost secrecy.
And then after three days and three nights, they would then meet with a guide who would take them from a path that was unknown to the flourish, a path that only some of the better ones of other tribes knew not the main road, not the highway, a back road. And in fact, they had to circle down to what is now Jeddah, and they were very close to Jeddah, and then they made their way to Medina from Jeddah and so they didn't take the highway from Mecca to Medina. They actually took the highway, if you like from Jeddah to Medina and the modern highway that is that they have just now built the modern Howard that they have just now built, I say just now has been at least 15 years. But for 40
years before this back in the 60s and 70s. There was a very old, you must remember it uncle visiting here it was rumored that old, I still have memories of that as well. When I was a kid. There's a very old highway from Makkah, that's that was another path, the new path, it is actually called political hedgerow. That's the name of the highway in our times, but equally hedgerow, because when the engineers actually found out when they had a maps and they figured out what's the best way to get from this place to that place, they actually figured out Believe it or not, actually, we firmly do believe that the best way is political hijra, right? The easiest way. And this was not the way
that was known to the Arabs at the time, because in order to do it, you have to go towards gender. So therefore, if you're going from Mecca to Medina, you actually circle a little bit towards Jeddah and then you work your way up, that's the highway of our times. And so the highway that you go to is actually closer to the hedgerow of the Profit System than the old highway that they had built back in the 50s. Back in the 40s, and 50s. Now, we had said that aboubaker already had this point in mind. And Abubakar rhodiola, who has had a plan, how to undertake this journey, we're going to get to this. We're going to get to this in a while before we get there.
It is said that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left mcca
activity reports in his sunon when he passed the final shops of Mecca, because the soup of Makkah was on the outskirts when he passed the final suit of Mecca. The middle of the night, he turned around to take one final look. And he would not enter MK again, except as a conquer so many years later, except for the one interlude in in the article called law. He came for two days or three days and he left otherwise he would not enter MCC again except as a conquer. Eight and a half years later, he turned around and he said speaking to Mukherjee never clear metaphor
He said to me, that you are the most blessed land on earth.
And the most beloved to me
while Ola and homie and word not for the fact that my people are junee have expelled me, I would never have left you. Were it not for the fact that my own people have expelled me, I would not have left you. And this is exactly the wordings that what aka Eben nofal told him almost 13 and a half years ago, when he accepted what I've been nofal told him who that was what have they been nofal said, I wish I wear a young man to help you the day that your people will expel you the exact same wordings and the profitsystem said our mo d g on my own people are going to expel me. He is saying 3030 years later, my homie ahora junee exact same wordings. 13 years have gone by. And this is the
fulfillment of the prophecy that what happens is because what happened was reality. What knows what has happened in the past? And so what occurs is yes, every prophet has been expelled and you're not going to be any exception. And so the Prophet system said this, even Kathy has over here that he also made a long day and he has the recorded. It's a long beautiful day, where he basically asks a lot for protection. He asked a lot to make this suffer easy for him. He asks a lot for his mercy and his and his protection. All of this is mentioned in Eben Cassius Sierra. I have not found it in any earlier. One of the classical books Allah subhana wa tada knows best now getting back to the story
of Abu Bakar and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and also the version of Arusha. He says that Abu Bakar had planned to stay in the lawn thawed for three nights. And they had made an arrangement with two different people, or I should say three people actually, they had made an arrangement with three people to do three chores. So Rebecca has been thinking about this for a long time, the planning has been done. The first was his son, Abdullah Abdullah bin Abu Bakar. Well, hula, hula moon Shah Woonsocket for locking this issue speaking. He was a young, strong man, very intelligent and very quick to understand. Abdullah bin Abu Bakar, his his oldest son, and he's
younger than us, my the oldest is smarter than Abdullah. And then you have Ayesha and then you had Abdul Rahman. And then you had a third daughter that was born after Abu Bakar died, his wife was pregnant. And that is almost Khadija. No homework also, because of the very last orderable bucket.
Homework assume that when, when Abu Bakar died, he was on his deathbed. And he told Arusha take care of your two sisters, and your two brothers.
He said, what two sisters, I only have one sister. And Abu Bakar said
that I feel that my wife, she had another wife after that my wife is pregnant, and she will give birth to a daughter. And he didn't even know this. She was not visibly pregnant. But he had a intuition from Allah. He had an intuition from Allah. And so he died. And eight months later, his wife gave birth to Our Issues youngest sister, hi, she's younger sister. This is a workers intuition that Allah had given anyway, getting back here. So a worker had said to his son, Abdullah, he is the oldest son as well as the oldest daughter, his son, Abdullah, that every morning, he would come out with some food and drink for the cave, because they're not going to leave the cave at all. So this
is going to be their provision inside the cave. And he would listen to the people of MK, what they're doing, which direction they're heading in, he's a young child, he's not going to be people are not going to pay attention to him. He's going to be going in the marketplace and eavesdropping, what are the people talking about? Where are the expeditions being sent to? So he would inform them on a daily basis in case they need to modify their plan. So this was Abdullah to be able to be buckers task and he would do this every day he would just go around as if he's doing his chores, purchasing what needs to be purchased taking out the goats doing this and that, in reality, this is
just a guy's to listen to what the people are talking about. And because he's a kid, nobody's paying attention to him. That's why she says he was a smart kid. He was way ahead of his years. The second person he says
Ohio was Abu Booker's, personal servant, ie a slave whom he had freed before him. He was a Booker's freed servant. I look at how to slave a worker freed the slave. And so there is a clear sense of loyalty to a worker. I mean, even for him. I met him before here I had the job of taking
Getting out the flocks, he would take some money to be a shepherd for the people of Mecca. Right? This is the most menial job you can do the process of himself did it, he will be a shepherd. His job was to take out the flocks and make sure that the footsteps of Abdullah ibn abacha are erased to
notice the footsteps of Abdullah with every buck are erased away. Right. And so I'm an advocate for Hara takes this flock of sheep, and he grazes back and forth over the footsteps so that nobody knows where the Prophet system has gone. And then there was a third man assigned for the job. And that is Abdullah urban. Thought or or a field both are mentioned, of the living apart or, or a field. Both are mentioned, we don't know the exact name and his job. He was not from the kurush. He was from a faraway tribe, and he was from a Bedouin tribe. And his job was to lead them down this what we now call political hedgerow. Because they're not going the famous way, they're going away that nobody
travels right. Now I know this difficult for us to understand, they actually did have highways back in those days, believe it or not, they did what is a highway back then there's a well traveled road, well traveled road, and they would have wells. And they would even have provisions for those who are completely out of everything they would sometimes build. This would depend on the political and the economic state of the of the of the people, but they would have provisions on the road. For those who don't have anything, they would put it up. If you're out of everything, there's going to be some water under some rocks or something, there would be marks there would be markings, people would know
this is the the path, right? And people would love to take the path, the same reason why we take the major highways and not the back roads, safety, security, something happens a major caravan will come the exact same reasons, right? Nobody just takes a four by four and goes into the desert unless they are of a different spirit. You know, that adventurous spirit. You know, that's not something the average person does. The same thing happens at the time of the Prophet system. So they hired Abdullah bin avocado a few to tell them of this back road that nobody ever traveled, you wouldn't find a soul on this road, unless they happen to be of a similar adventurous spirit. This was not the
road that other people travel. And the point was where the goal was with a plan was that Abdullah ibn Orion state would meet them on the morning of the third night, three nights in the cave. Nobody knows. And then on the morning of the third night, they would meet Abdullah bin arcot. And he would take take them on this on this new road. Now, in a narration that is
modificata this Bukhari and Muslim.
Honestly, Malik says that I will work narrated to us the details of the journey. I will work and narrated to us the details of the journey. And this is the famous story that all of you know that Abu Bakar said that now.
Some of you I'm sure have been there has been a lot of thought that two, three, huh?
You've seen it. You've been inside it. You have been inside government inside of it. So So why do you thought when you write a thought is not like a lot of headlines, very different, a lot of headlines, very different. A lot of thought is a very small cave. And the entrance is more on the top, like you have to wiggle your way in and then jump into not really jump but put your way into the heart. Now in our times, if you go to the throat, it's actually a small chamber. That's because there's been probably 5 million people that have come in and out of it. Every time somebody comes in, you know, it gets a little bit bigger, you know, you take a little bit sand out, you literally
carve out a bigger cave just by walking into and out of it. Right. This is basic geology, basic, you know, physics, I mean, everybody who comes in, believe it or not every human being who walks into that cave and walks out the cave will actually expand because of that, right? Another example is the mount of the archers, juggler. Roma. Jebel Roma, at the time of the Prophet system was at least four times higher than what it is now. Right? Nobody came and destroyed it. But what happens if we all go up and we go down? As we go up, and we go down, we take a little bit of the sand with us, right? So what happens over the last 14 centuries, this gentleman has become a little bit of a hill that's
maybe what three times the size of this machine right three, four times is very small. Even an elderly person can walk all the way to the top and come back down. No problem. That wasn't the way it was back then back then it was much higher. By the way the same happens for safa and marwah stuff and Maduro much larger than they are now we only see 10 feet it was actually more like 100 feet back then. So the point being this is basic geology, basic human
Java thought was a very small chamber. And it is said that there was only space literally for two people in that job and so it's not like a little massive chamber that there's a martial law, ventilation and running water and no
This is not it's literally a crevice. That's more like what it is just a little crack. And woodworker had planned this to be there for three days that stay in there. Now a woodworker saw the courage walking up and down. The cave question arises how did they get there? And this is not mentioned in this narration it is mentioned in other books about it and other books mentioned that when the kurush figured out that the process of them had not gone the usual road, because all the other Mahajan had taken the usual road. All of the other Mahajan had taken the usual road, but the orange didn't send expeditions to bring them back. Right. If they, you know, destroyed the odd day
for so haven a few people. Otherwise, they didn't send an expedition to send them back. If they got to the road, then call us. Okay, who's gonna go and get them back for the Profit System. They sent out riders, they sent out every direction they figured out, he's not there. So then another he says one of the ancient books that says they hired an expert Scout, they hired an expert scout
to figure out the traces of the camel from the house of Abu Bakar.
And so this scout managed to despite all of the precautions, now he's an expert Scout, right? So he has his ways Allah knows I have no idea how this person can figure it out. But whether it's through camel dung, yes, camel dung, because even camels have different tongues. And once you figure out which one this is, you can figure this out, or I don't know how the other ways as well, but they have their ways. So they hired this expert scout from outside of the city, private detective, basically, right. And they bring him to Makkah, and they say trace the footsteps of these two men. And so he leads them to the base of Hadith. And it goes, this is where I can trace it. From here.
It's a mountain I can't follow anymore. From here, it's a mountain. Now, this is skeptical. It's iffy, like, this is one theory. So they're, they're not 100% sure he's on the mountain. But this is the best hint they've had for the last three days. So what happens? They all send in the troops in the forces, right? Abu jihad is there on what do you do? But is there a oma even harder is there all the big names come? Because this is the hint now that they've been wanting, this is better than anything they've gotten. And so this is the famous incident that Abu Bakar looks out and he sees a Buddha had an Omega 700, and all of them, that's why they were on the mountain. And this is when he
whispers to the Prophet says that, all they need to do is to look into this crevice, and they will see us all they need to do is look into this crevice and they will see us. He says, low level admin Academy Upsala, if they just look down at their feet, where they we are now they would see us because the entrance to the cave, it's at feet level. And so the person who's walking outside might see a little bit of a crack. And they would assume that the crack is not a cave, they would assume is just a crack. You know how mountains have there's all these cracks. So Booker became panicked and he whispered, if they just look down, they'll see us and this is one of the prophecies and responded
to the famous phrase that all of you should know and memorize for Katya abubaker malverne Luca with naini Allahu therethrough, Houma or Abu Bakar, what do you think of two people a lot is the third of them. What do you think's gonna happen? What do you think of two people a lot is the third of them. Now over here, of course, we all have the
famous stories of the spider and the tree, and the pigeons and all that. And again, there they are mentioned in some of the books. The the story of the spider web is mentioned in Mr. Demand, Ahmed, and there is a slight weakness in it. And so out of all of the stories, this is the best story, there's a slight weakness in it as for the narration of the tree, leaning down over the mouth, or the two pigeons setting up a nest, these are reported with massive missing links. So third, fourth generation, reporting what happened at the time of the process of them. So no problem narrating it but we should know that this is not in Bukhari and Muslim This is not like 100% authentic but
nothing is surprising. If Allah had willed it, then we don't we don't have any problem affirming that. So they crossed over the lotto, and they didn't realize they were in there. And so after the third day, they met Abdullah urban outfitter, I believe it already failed, and the three of them began going on their way to Medina, towards the direction of the shore. Now, Jeddah is at the shore as you should know, genders at the shore, muddy America is inside inland. So they work their way down south and then from South they work their way out basically to what is now Jeddah, right outside of Jeddah and then they began going northwards towards Mecca, which is a road that is
parallel to the main road from Mecca to Medina but not the main road. It is parallel to it, right but it is not the main road and this is the road as I said to
In our times, this is the main highway that runs from Mecca to Medina. It actually goes this way and then upwards because we have discovered that this is actually the fastest way to get to Medina in our times. And that's what this discovery was on the recent and on the way to Medina, a number of stories are narrated, most important to them two stories and narratives that are clearly authentically narrated. The first of them is the story of Soraka in magic, and the second of them is the story of Omar Ahmed Soraka, Eben Malik and Omar Ahmed, very briefly, these are stories that all of you should be familiar with.
And they are now ready with authentic change. Soraka urban medic was from the tribe of Mark Cuban from the tribe of Georgia.
And he was not from the core. He basically was from one of the Bedouin tribes, and he was the leader of the tribe. He was the leader of the tribe.
And the booty, the bounty, the war money of 100 camels have been placed on a bucket and the Prophet says I'm dead or alive. Anybody who finds them gets 100 camels. That's a lot of money. 100 Campbell's is a lot of money. The process of didn't even own one camel until the hinges on a camel is like a car imagine 100 cars, so a lot of money. And so there's 100 camels, whoever catches the profitsystem and oh, Buck are dead or alive. No questions asked. So Dr. Eben Malik narrates the story to us himself in the first person. That's why it's very interesting. he narrates the story after he accepts Islam. And so rockhaven Malik says that he was sitting with his fellow tribesmen
and the news comes that they're searching for three writers. Because now they've discovered the plot, they discover Abu Bakar and the Prophet system and a guy three people have left. So the news goes out is on the grapevine to rewriters in the desert. If you find them dead or alive, and they are the process of they would then they are you get 100 camels. So Raka says I was sitting with my tribesmen, and one of my people came back from a hunting expedition. And he says, I saw three people in the distance. I'm sure this must be the three that you're looking for.
Soraka got greedy.
And Soraka wanted the 100 for himself, not to share it with anybody. So immediately he lied. And he says, Oh, no, no, that's not those three. That's the party of so and so they told me they were going to expedition in that region. He lied. That's not those. There's somebody else. I know who they are. Don't worry about that. So he sat down the man who thought it was extremely exciting. He sat down conversation continued Soraka says when they forgot about the incident, because he played it cool. He slipped away, rushed back home, got his warhorse ready, put on his armor and galloped at lightning speed as fast as he could to get to those three people because he has bows and arrows. And
it says Dead or Alive palace. He can kill them without even coming close. And he'll get 100 camels and Soraka says favorite stories famous I have to summarize because time is limited. That when he saw them for the first time in the distance, all of a sudden, my horse sunk into the ground and threw me flipped me over and he had never done this before. In another version he said that I could see a smoke between me and the three writers something's clearly wrong. And so he said I pulled out my Islam Islam is their, their method of predicting the future. As long as like chariot cards or reading your palms or something like this, they had they had they had a type of Islam, which
basically means they're going to ask the gods what should be done. Call it a pagan salata staccato, okay, call it a pagan setup that is staccato, that's really what it is. Okay, so he said, I pulled out those as them what is Islam By the way, it's, it's arrows that has certain things on it, you know, literally like you have the tablet cards or Weegee boards, it has these weird symbols and whatnot, you need to interpret it your own way. So he has those things with him. So he said, I threw out my Islam onto the sand to see which direction is going to go see all of that. And the response that I got was do not proceed.
I ignored it and continued going cuz he wants the money. Right. The second time it came closer once again, the exact same thing happened.
Once again, I was thrown across the horse one second I took it out once again it says do not proceed. I ignored it and went for the third time until finally they were within yelling distance I could I could speak to them. And for the third time my horse did it even more violently. And I knew that this was a force beyond me. I knew that this was a man I could not reach beyond my block beyond my power.
And he said in this Hadith, he said, and I knew that the affair of this man would spread, I Islam would spread. I knew that the affair of this man would spread. So I called out to them that I am a safe person, I'm not going to harm you give me permission to come close Subhanallah from the hunted, he becomes the one asking permission. Right? From the one who's hunting, he becomes the one asking permission. And he narrates an interesting thing. He says, When I saw them in the desert, I forgot to mention this when I saw them in the distance, I saw that one of the two I aboubaker was riding in a very agitated state, always looking right and left, sometimes behind, sometimes going to the
front, sometimes going by behind sometimes going to the front. Because he's so worried about the profit center, that he's worried he's going to be attacked from the back, he goes in the back, then his paranoia gets the better than what if he's attacked from the front, he goes to the front, right, he cannot concentrate, whereas the other writer was writing calmly and peacefully, not turning once left or right reciting something reciting the Quran reciting something. The status of a worker is as of the Profit System right? worker is very worried 20 to protect and the process of law Yes, definitely. Amina is not even looking. No, he just the worker and Alanna, he knows a lot will
protect him. So when he finally got permission to come to come forth
Soraka Eben Malik says that I asked permission from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam to give me protection in writing.
It's an amazing thing. One minute, he wants to pull this arrow to kill them. The next minute, he says I knew that their affair would spread everywhere. So I wanted protection when that happened. I didn't want to be hurt when that happened. So I asked for protection. A man a man means we're not going to harm you. Right? Well, amazing. Look at how in one instance from the hunted to begging permission to live basically. And the Prophet system allowed Abdullah even a rocket to write down on a scroll right down on a parchment, a man for Soraka, Eben Malik that you will be safe. So luckily, we're going to be safe. We're not going to harm you. You
use protected us today we're going to protect you tomorrow whenever the need comes. So like I said, I offered them some food. And the both of them refused. They had no need of they were prepared for that they had no need of this. But I will bucker said
don't tell anybody about us. That's the one request we have. Don't tell anybody about us. And so Soraka didn't tell anybody about them, until finally he went
when they did arrive in Medina, by the way. So Rafa told them all the story that happened, and Abuja had wrote him a scathing poem, where he called Soraka, the foolish that you let them go when you did this, and this and, you know, you're basically an idiot basically is very harsh poetry. He wrote them that they slipped out of your hands, and sulaco wrote back poetry is all in his house. And he said to him that had you been there on that day? And you had seen what I had seen? Then you wouldn't be saying what you're saying, I know what happened. You don't know what happened. Okay, I saw with my own eyes, you didn't see what I saw. And so eventually, after the Battle of her name, of course,
by the way in wondering why even Abdullah versus this, what I mentioned to you is Muslim and Mohammed bin Abdullah bottle. Another very early author says that when Soraka turned to leave the Prophet system for the first time turned to him and said to him, yeah, Soraka k fabic. Osaka, how will you be the day that you put on the bracelets of kisara? How will you be the day that you put on the bracelets of kisara Soraka. Shocked, couldn't say anything other than kisara, the son of whom was like, as if we said the president, there's only one President, as if you said the King. In any land of kings. There's only one key there's only one kiss at all. Right? But he kind of kiss it off
the sun of what it was meaning the emperor of Persia, you want me to wear his bracelets or I'm gonna wear his bracelets? And that's it. The person didn't even respond. How will you be the day that you put on the bracelets of now kisara was
well known for the jewelry that he would wear as a man is a man but he would wear jewelry, right? Not to mention things that you shouldn't be seeing but if you seen the movie 300 you've seen the leader of the of the Persians dressed in all these weird things right? That's basically kisser out there. That's the the idea that the idea of the Roman or the Persian Emperor is there would be bracelets and earrings and whatnot. This is they were dressed like this and he had very expensive jewelry at very expensive gold and decorated
braces well known everybody envied him for this. Okay, so the profitsystem is saying, how are you going to be the day that you wear those bracelets of kisara. Right. And on the day of her name, which is after the conquest of Makkah, the Prophet says that have conquered basically the other tribes of lying Makkah, and he finally conquered the tribe of Soraka. avian Malik Soraka pulled out the very piece of paper that he had, it's not paper, it's actually parchment. He pulled out the very piece of leather that he had, that the Prophet system had written to him almost 10 years ago, eight, nine years ago, and the prophecies and recognized Soraka and he gave him the security he gave him
the amount and Soraka accepted Islam and Soraka became a well known Sahabi after this, and he migrated to Medina, he lived in Medina, the Prophet says and passed away within six, seven years of his death. The the mighty nation of the sassanid Persians collapsed, as we talked about in the Battle of policia was the beginning of the end of the sassanids. And eventually, parasol palace, which is still standing to this day, still standing to this day parasol palace, which is a city outside of Iran, which was the capital of the sassanids. You have pillars in the middle of the desert, literally, like 100 200 feet just in the air going, it's amazing. You just see pictures of
it in our times. We are astounded To this day, these massive palaces completely empty and abandoned. Right from the middle of nowhere. You see To this day, it's amazing architecture, that eventually Persepolis was conquered, that is the capital of the facets. And as is typical, all of the the jewelry, all of the treasures of the palace are gathered and sent to the pub. And in the masjid, they're opened up the message to the Prophet system is full of treasures and gold. And when he sees the palace treasure, he says, Where is Soraka called Soraka for me, and so Soraka is called is found in this he called and Omar puts him on his own chair. And Omar finds in that gold, the bracelets of
kisara because everybody knows the promise. Everybody knows what the process and I've said, these are now legends everybody's heard. He finds the two bracelets of kisara. He puts them on the hand of Soraka, Eben Malik, and the entire congregation starts saying Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar. This is the fulfillment of what the prophet says what I'm saying. And in fact, the version of an underbar says they took Soraka around Medina, can you imagine the bracelets of kisara, the most powerful man now and Omar Abdullah hakab, said Alhamdulillah, who has taken this bracelet away from kisara the son of Hormuz and given them to Soraka a better word from the trauma of the buddy, the tribe of the battle
millage. Alhamdulillah, who has taken them from this mighty man and given them to this Muslim as what the prophets have predicted so many years ago, so panelo What an amazing story and it is clearly mentioned in our books and it is what are the many many miracles that are mentioned in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam we don't have time for the story of Omar but we will continue the story man but inshallah next Wednesday and then as well talk about the entrance of the Prophet system to Medina and inshallah also next Wednesday, we'll talk about a very important topic and that is why Medina we didn't talk about this yet. Why Medina? Why did a lot choose this city and
not so many other cities? That's a question that has many responses and reasons to there's a deep and profound wisdom and that is in Charlotte something we will talk about inshallah, next Wednesday, if we're able to do all of that. We have a few minutes left for questions and then some announcements as usual, and then we'll break for Sadat, Alicia.
So yeah, inshallah, next week, and next Wednesday, so we're going to talk about some of the wisdoms of the ciroc one of the wisdoms of the Syrah that we learned of the hedgerow, excuse me, one of the wisdoms of the hijra, Abdullah bin arcot. All right, it
was not from the Quran, by the way. He was not from the polish. He was not from the Quran. And he was also not a Muslim. He was upon the religion of his people. He was a Muslim. And it's very amazing that
they paid him a sum. That must have been a fraction of 100 camels. He's a guide, he gets paid, right? He gets paid a small amount. They paid him a sum that is a fraction of the 100 camels, but he still did it.
Many scholars not just me have tried to find out as much as they can about Abdullah even, but we don't have any references.
In fact, we don't even know the accepted Islam. At the time, he was clearly a pagan. The earliest scholars even had yet himself I looked up today. Even hedger says, I searched and I couldn't find anything.
About this map, after this incident, we don't hear from him again. Did he accept? Did he not accept? We don't even know. One can assume he accepted but we don't have anything narrated if he accepted or not. Clearly, therefore, we have to assume that the Prophet says no, Bucher knew something about this man that we don't know. And that he was a trustworthy person. And this is something we know for a fact that many non Muslims can be very trustworthy and many Muslim can very untrustworthy, right? We know this for a fact. So Abdullah, even arcot was somebody that they both trusted, that he was an honest man, and he would do this for them and not betray them for a larger sum of money. And the
fact of the matter, Allah says in the Koran woman, Abdullah kitabi, there are people of the alligator, if you were to give them a treasure, they would be honest and return it to you. And there are others. If you were to give them a few measly coins, they try to trick you out of it. This is the reality that you will find people who are non Muslims, pagan idol worshippers, Hindu, Buddhist atheist, and they're honest, Islam doesn't necessarily make you automatically honest, if you don't practice it, correct. We all know this the hard way many of us right and vice versa as well that you will find people who have good manners Allah mentions in the Quran, but they don't have Mr. So and
so this shows us as Muslims, we clearly are allowed to use the services even trust non Muslims. If we feel that they're honest people honesty is what is important here. And it's clear that the both of them felt Abdullah even apart was an honest, trustworthy man.
Other questions before we have someone else Moses.
Excellent point and I was going to mention this next Wednesday as well.
Abuja Hall came to interrogate us.
And in fact, he beat her up until she bled,
but she refused to say a word.
So they did interrogate
but they couldn't get it out. Hi, she was too young. And of course, the father is always a pagan. He doesn't know. The father wanted to criticize Abu Bakar and he ended up you know, being tricked by by by Esma. So a smile was doubly punished once by her grandfather, who taunted her and then by Abuja, who physically beat her Abuja came and tried to get it out of her, but he wasn't able to do so
inshallah, with this
