Series: Yasir Qadhi - Seerah
Shaykh Yasir Qadhi discusses the Tafseer of Surah Fath in this final part of the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah and we realise that this Surah was revealed in its entirety – in one go at a single time.
Next up for discussion are the Seerah benefits, the theological benefits, the Fiqh benefits and the modern political benefits of the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah.
- Seerah Benefits – this includes making the Quraysh recognize muslims as equals, bringing about a sense of peace and security to permit the Muslims to look into other major pressing issues in the city of Madinah, interaction of the Muslims and pagans without any fighting , mixing of the pagans and the Muslims and promotion of buying, selling, spreading of the message of Islam which led to many more converts to Islam.
- Theological Benefits – The issue of Al-Fa’l was clearly elaborated upon,the permissibility of using the remains of the Prophet ﷺ wudu, spit, hair and many more to seek blessings, the issue of ascribing the happenings of any events to anyone other than Allah, the issue of Qadr,the explicitness of the Qur’an and the Sunnah removing all need for anyone else’s opinion on religious issues.
- Fiqh Benefits – The permissibility of engaging in peace treaties with a completely evil enemy,the removal of one’s Ihram in the event of discontinuity of Hajj or Umrah for a legitimate reason only and hence, to shave his hair, sacrifice the animal and consequently remove his ihraam.
- Modern Political benefits.

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad Ali, he will be here.
Today we will finish up and conclude with the incident of who they be. And we'll begin by quickly going over some of the main verses in the Quran, insert alfetta that go that mentioned the incident of Libya. And as I had said that sudut alfetta came down in its entirety, while the Prophet system was going back from holiday via to Makkah, and this is one of those rare suitors that was revealed in its entirety. Usually, the Sula did not come down in its entirety. Sometimes the pseudo took seven, eight years to come down like Bakara. It took over seven, eight years. In fact, you can even say took nine years because the last verse of Bukhara was the last verse reveal, so that that factor
is one of those sutras it came down wholesale, all of it from beginning to end in one go. And it came down neither in Macau nor in Medina. And yet it is maddening because it came down after the hedgerow, so it is called Madani, even though physically it didn't come down in Medina, it came down on the way back to Medina. And unfortunately, we do not have time to go over every single ayah. But I asked you to read the entire student in the context of our series in her baby. And I'll just go over some of the main ideas. And unfortunately, again, because of time, I'll have to quote the English and I really hate doing this because the Quran is only in Arabic, but translation is merely
a translation. And so for the sake of time, we'll just quickly quote some of the translated verses. So obviously, the first portion of the sutra that surely would have given you a clear victory surely would have given you a manifest victory. Why have we done this so that Allah may forgive your sins, Leo fiddle Allahu la Kamata Padma minsan bicolano Allah forgive your sins, the past of them and those that will come, and he may perfect his favor upon you and keep you upon the right way, and that Allah azza wa jal help you with a mighty help. So Allah is saying, this treaty and this incident is one more way of showing your honor, and of forgiving your sins. Now what has the Treaty
of creditor got to do with forgiving the sins of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the pain, the anguish the grief that is caused is something that causes sins to be forgiven. And the Treaty of Abia caused our profitsystem some grief. Also any honor and blessing that is given forgive sins. So this is a treaty that honor and blessings is being given to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then in verse number five, and so that he may give the believing men and women Jannat antigen material and how and save them from their evil and indeed this is a great achievement with Allah subhana wa Tada. So Allah has given you this conquest this Fattah to forgive your sins, and to cause the
believers to enter agenda. This is a blessing for you. It's a great victory for you. Then, in verse number 10, surely those who give you the oath of allegiance in the legendary by your own UK, they give the oath to Allah subhana wa Tada. They're not giving a just to you. The hand of Allah is over their hand, yo la he phoca ad him. So Allah emphasizes that those who have given the battle with one they are giving the br directly to me. Then verse number 1112, and 13 Allah mentions those who remain behind the moon I feel that
when you go back to Medina, they will tell you the Bedouins and the Arab the Bedouins, the hypocrites will tell you, oh, we were busy because of our money and our children. So please ask Allah to forgive us. They say with their tongues, what is not in their hearts, rather, and a lot later on says, You thought that the Prophet system and the believers will never return to Medina. And that thought was made alluring to you. And indeed, you had an evil thought. And you are a people that were doomed to perish. So Allah exposes the excuse. Of course there's so many miracles here because before the process and returns to Medina, Allah tells him what the people will tell him
before he gets back Allah tells them there's gonna say a Hulu, they will say to you, how did the Arab know what they would say? Right? How did the the Arab, they had not heard of the sort of further being recited yet they quote sooner and further without knowing they're quoting. So little fatter, that the belly ones come in and give an excuse. They said, we're busy. It was harvest season it was this and that. And of course, this is very similar to a book that's going to happen in two years. But the same point here, they gave an excuse, and Allah says, they say what their tongues what is not in their heart, rather they thought you would never come back and what an evil thought
The college would kill you what an evil thought. And
Allah subhana wa Tada. Then mentions that ensued in verse number 18 la casa de la do la whining meaning is you by your own attack the shadow that Verily Allah is well pleased with the believers when they swore their allegiance to you from under the tree, and Alon knew what was in their hearts. So Allah sat down peace upon them, and rewarded them with a close victory. Notice the contrast Allah knows the heart of the hypocrites, and Allah expose their hearts. And Allah also said the believers said something and that is the oath of allegiance, and they meant it. So Allah knew what is in their hearts. And because of that Allah sent down forgiveness, and Allah has given them a close promise a
near victory. What is this near victory, as we will mention, it is the conquest of hiber. And in it, the Muslims got more booty and more aneema than they had ever gotten in any battle before. Hiva, then Allah subhana wa tada mentions that in verse 22 and 23, that if the Quran had actually fought, you will have what's called telecommuting, aka furusawa suppose that the fighting had taken place, even then, even though you were numerically less, they were the ones who would have turned around and fled, and they would have not found any protector. So Allah says, You were the brave people, you challenge them, and they didn't fight even though they were more than you. But I will tell you even
if they fought, you would have remained and they would have fled. And this is another praise for the unsought and demise you know, that Allah tells them of the future that will is not going to happen. And this is of the interesting thing is Allah knows the past. Allah knows the future, Allah knows the present, Allah knows the future, that is not going to happen. If it happens, how it would happen. This is also of the knowledge of Allah. Right? Allah knows that future that will never happen. But if it happened, how it would happen, because a lot as a widow is predicting something that's not going to happen. There was no battle in her baby. Yet Allah says if you had fought them,
they would have turned around and fled. And you would have remained on the battlefield and that's of course a blessing for them. And then Allah subhana wa tada criticizes them in verse number 25. They were the ones who rejected and disbelieved and turned you away from the sacred mosque was so Dooku might invest you that how long, and they also turned away the animals that were meant for the sacred mosque. So Allah is criticizing the harsh they prevented you and they prevented the charity from reaching its destination. And then were it not for believing men and believing women that you do not know about, and you might have killed? Were it not for them, Allah subhana wa tada would have caused
a battle to take place. I'm trying to think by meaning here. And the point here is Allah is saying in MK there are many Muslims in MK because there are many Muslims, they're persecuted, they're hiding their face. And if there had been a battle, they would have been forced to be on the side of the kurush because their Islam is secret, and you would have been forced to kill them. And if you had killed them, and later on discovered that there were Muslims, you would have felt great grief. And therefore it is a loss of Hanover data that prevented this bloodshed from taking place. Even though you had conquered some of the remember there was an incident where the Muslims had conquered
a small entourage and despite this conquering the, they had submitted and they had surrendered without any blood being shed. And then the final verse, Allah subhana wa tada reaffirms the vision and the dream. la causada por la hora de la Roja will help that surely, Allah has shown the True Vision to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah has shown the true dream, you shall enter letter, the whole Luna, there is an emphasis you shall enter the message that held on after having shaved or trimmed your hair, you will be in security, you shall not fear and Allah knows what you do not know. So he brought about a near victory for town, Atiba a major victory through this so you
will get your own raw, but you will also get a victory. And what is this victory? Some say this victory is the prediction of the conquest of Mecca. Allah knows best. And some say this is high. But again, some say it was other victories. And we'll mention some of those victories today. And then the final two verses are verses that praise the Prophet so seldom. And the famous phrase Mohammed Rasulullah, which only occurs twice in the foreign law is the law of the phrase, in that way occurs once and then the phrase Mohammed Rasulullah. In this particular manner, it occurs twice, and this is one of those two times Mohammed or Rasulullah, that mohammedanism is the Messenger of Allah. And
then the rest of the verse is a praise for the unsought and the Maha juden. Those who are with him will lead in a man who they are strict against the kuffaar and they are compassionate amongst the believers. You will see them bowing down process
Trading seeking the pleasure of Allah, they have prostration marks on their faces from the effects of the sujood. And then a lot of xojo goes on and praises the Sahaba in this manner, and by the way, not really related to who they be. But the last verse chapter, the last verse of
which is verse 29. It is one of the one of only two verses in the Quran, in which every single letter of the Arabic alphabet exists is just a little bit of a trivia point here, every single letter of the Arabic alphabet occurs in this verse, there's only one other verse like that, in any case, just a brief summary of certain factors. Now today, for the rest of today, we're really going to do the main lessons and the benefits from the incident of her baby. And we began we'll divide this into four sections, firstly, benefits from the CLR. Secondly, theological benefits, thirdly, fixed benefits. And then fourthly, modern political thoughts benefits, right. So we divide this into
four sections. Firstly, CLR benefits, as for the zero benefits of the greatest benefits is that it forced the corporation to treat the Muslims like an equal party. Because treaties are only enacted between two equals otherwise, it's a command, and it's a haughty arrogance. But for the first time, the courage and the process are brought to the table as equals. And therefore this is demonstrating that the Muslims are not only gaining a sense, eventually they will gain the upper hand. And therefore another point here in this era, that the some of the kurush, many of them may be realized that the tide is turning. And it was this realization that made them so paranoid so crazy, that they
said, Whatever happens, you're not going to enter this year, let not the Arab say that you had the upper hand over us. What does that show? It shows that they did have the upper hand, right. But there is this arrogance, you know, when you're just stubbornly arrogant, you don't care what anybody says, right? It doesn't matter. They've reached that paranoia. Now, they've reached that level that people are gonna say, you're more powerful. So whatever happens, you're not going to enter Mecca. In that we noticed their insecurity, we noticed they realize the table is turning. And as the table is turning, some of them those who are the closest to Islam. This was the final straw that they needed
in order to embrace Islam. And very soon we will come to the last converts before the conquest of Makkah, culminating with hot lead and refined in a beautiful and unbelievable house. It was the Treaty of Abia that was really the last straw for these people that they realize that there is no way that this religion is going to diminish and disappear. It is the truth. And they needed to see some of them their Eman was not as quick as Abu Bakar. They needed to see signs and heard Abo was the final sign that they needed to see before they embraced Islam, also of the benefits in the Sierra is that this piece brought about for the Muslims a comfort and security that they had never
felt before. Butter, or hood, hunt duck, these are all fresh. And there's always this fear. When will the attack again, what will the next battle be? But now that the Treaty of Philadelphia is enacted, this brings about a psychological sense of peace of calm, and that peace and calm allows them to concentrate on other issues that they did not have the luxury to concentrate on before or they be first and foremost the issue of the remaining yahoodi tribes and that is inhaber now and that's exactly why less than one month after her debut. Hybrid takes place because there is a big Thorn and that's the Bruno lead and the remnants of the vinyl plane are still causing issues and
they need to be dealt with. But as long as we're the threat of the correlation as long as we have other issues we can't you know have the luxury to deal with hyper because hybrid as we will study from next week inshallah onwards. That was a fortress. And it's going to require a lot of work, who has the time and the energy to dedicate when we're worried about the crash. Now that the crash is taken care of. We can concentrate on the other threat and that was the threat of the bundle novia and the remnants of the bonavia. Also, this piece allowed for the very first time the Profit System to start thinking globally now, or maybe acting globally is a better term. Obviously, he's thinking
globally from day one to start acting globally. Now that the local threat has been eliminated for the very first time now. Her debut takes place in the seventh year. And now in the next year of the hedgerow. The profitsystem is going to start writing letters to the leaders. He writes letters to at least a dozen and we'll talk about the letters in one lecture or maybe even two. And so for the very first time, the prophet system begins writing letters to international leaders because Orosz is now finally
I think we can we can deal with this. It's something that's bottled up. So we have now the opportunity to look global and to look beyond this. This also shows us that the Treaty of Abia it gave or it affirmed the sense that the Muslim oma is now an independent republic that it can negotiate now with the Caesar with kisser Ah, with more focus, the processor is writing letters as a political leader now, and will they be either affirmed or simply added to that aura of the Muslims being an independent political entity. Also, one of the greatest blessings of Arabia, perhaps the greatest secret blessing is that it allowed for the first time Muslims and pagans to interact
without fear of bloodshed throughout the Arabian Peninsula. It allowed Muslims and pagans idol worshipers to engage in buying and selling and traveling in mixing with one another. And this allowed the message of Islam to spread peacefully. And this obviously caused many people to convert. And so today B was not a Jihad of the sword. It was a Jihad of peace and the Jihad of Dawa and frankly, the Jihad of peace in the jihadi Dawa was far more effective in terms of conference than any Jihad of war, because you're not going to convert people by the sword. But you will convert people by persuasion by talking about your theology. And what happens when you have peace. You can
talk about your religion and eventually have a Zuccotti and if you remember, he was he is the most famous scholar of the Tabby rune, died 124 Digital, and clearly he is the one of the main architects of our fifth Canarsie era, and are also really one of the main bastions of Satanism, a bishop Zuberi, but we don't know much about him in terms of masters because he didn't write a separate book like body or others that was before his time. But we owe everything really, in terms of Islamic academics. He has already he has already said there was no victory given to Islam before with a B, that was bigger than who they be. There was no victory given to the Muslims before they'd be up then
or they'd be a why. He said this was in Shahab speaking, that the people were all at peace with one another. So they would mix and talk and mentioned Islam. And so not a single intelligent person heard about Islam, except that he entered it.
And this is still him commenting in the next two years after they be the number of Muslims doubled, or even more than this. Islam had been preaching its message for 16 years, no, 19 years 13 plus 619 years, it is preaching its message. And in two years after they be the number of converts doubles from the 13 years per day be Think about that. And
even his Sham, who's been a sham?
Was it been a sham? Come on, guys.
The story in the theater guy, what did he do?
Even his Sham?
He No, he didn't write this year.
He copied who's
in his house. Very good. He summarized and edited in his house. This is no standard. You guys should know this. Right? It'd been his Sham quotes. azuri. And then he says, The proof for azuri statement is that in baotou, read one, there were 1400 people. Two years later in the conquest of Makkah, there are 10,000 people.
So all you have to do is look at the numbers that the bulk of the Muslims have, maybe not all of them, the bulk of them participated into the one that's 1400 men in the conquest of Makkah, where did these 8000 9000 extra come from? They have converted in the last two years. That is what a sham is saying. All you have to do is to look at the numbers. So this shows us that a peace treaty might actually be a far bigger victory than a military endeavor. And of course of the of the points and the benefits of Sierra davia is that her debut is a blessing and a status for those who participated in it. As I mentioned two weeks ago that the process of him said to the people of Grenada and to how
you drew it out you are the best people on earth. And in another Hadith, he said, no one who gave me the beta will ever enter the fire of hell. And of the final benefits of the Sierra from her Arabia is that her debut was a direct line to the conquest of Mecca. Without Arabia, you cannot have the conquest of Makkah, as we will see when we get to the conquest of Makkah, it was the Treaty of who they be, that allow the prophets Allah set them to engage in a military expedition when the orange did not live up to their site and
Therefore had it not been for who they be, there will be no conquest of Makkah. So in Africa, helicopter Medina, there was a very clear victory. Now, second stage theological benefits for those who came late with said there's going to be four stages of benefits, Sierra benefits, theological benefits, fiscal benefits, modern political science benefits, theological benefits very quickly because we've done most of these before, but just to reiterate, of the theological benefits, even aka human rights, and it will tell you and by the way, is one of the greatest masters of extracting benefits from this era. Hardly anybody has done that type of analysis that nobody else has done. And
that is to really think about the sealer, and then extract points of benefits, and I hope that inshallah I'm following in that footsteps to, to really examine every episode every incident and extract what you can extract. So I'm not clear when he did this, he does this in his book, that that method, which is in five volumes, it's a great book, and it has an entire section about benefits from the zero. So even though it says that of the benefits from today B has a long section of the benefits, the permissibility, of standing guard for a person of importance, because typically, this is not allowed. Our Profit System has forbidden
a Muslim ruler from sitting down, and everybody rising in his presence is the general rule. Right? And he said, anybody who likes this, he should be prepared to sit in the fire of hell, or be prepared to meet a laws or to meet the punishment of a London fire of hell forget about MacArthur human or not. Right. So we learned that the general rule we notice that when somebody comes in or when somebody is sitting down of importance, you don't stand up as a token of respect. We know this, however, in how they be or what happened when the emissaries came on mohila, Abu Bakar, others are all standing with their swords ready.
And they will tell you in remarks that they did this as a show of force, even though it was not the habit of the process of to have an armed guard, it was not his habit to have an entourage It was not his habit to have the elite, you know, bodyguard. That's not his habit, he didn't have it, but at who they be this took place. Why? To show the kurush that the Muslims respect their leader, even more than you guys respect your leaders, to show them basically the protocol that they're accustomed to, right there is a protocol that is that is accepted, there is a protocol that is known. And if the Sahaba had all been sitting down, you know, in haphazard fashion, the emissaries of the Qureshi
would have understood, you're not going to do anything for that for your leader. So to demonstrate that respect, the way they are accustomed to it. So in this case, it is allowed for a Muslim for a particular reason, also of the theological benefits we learn and I talked about this in a lot of detail is the issue of alpha Ellen, what is alpha who can remind me
optimism also good omens alpha and good omens, right, we read in something positive. And what are the two conditions of alpha being legitimate? Everybody should know.
The two conditions are no takers.
And the name of Allah
that is true. How do you know it's true?
So if it doesn't come to pass, it's not true.
That's not the condition.
So number one, it's a good omen not a bad omen not true. It's a good positive. It's a positive omen. There's no such thing as negative bad luck doesn't exist. Positive Omen something optimistic number one and number two is what?
you link it to Allah subhanho wa Taala. You link it to Allah subhana wa Tada. Okay, that you say this is from Allah subhana wa Tada. So if these two conditions are met, you may read in a positive sign.
And the most common type of reading is by something you hear but you can also do something you see. So you hear the name of somebody, you hear a positive sentence, right? Then you read in something positive, and the prophets of Salaam when Sohail came, he said, a hula emoticon so from Sohail he derived a positive Omen that now Allah is sending the ease. This is going to be these everything was an impasse. So we learned from here, the point of alpha. Also there was a hadith I didn't mention related to her they be I'll just quickly mention it about theological benefits that at one point in time in her debut, it rained very severely. One of those, they were camped for around 20 days or so.
And so one of those days it rained very severely. And the next day, the rumors started spreading that from the days of shahida. They would have a custom that they would say it rained because of such and such a star. They'd have a pre Islamic custom because of such and such as started rained, right? So apparently, one or two people said something of this nature.
After salata, ledger, the prophet SAW Selim said, Do you know what Allah said last night, they said what he said, Allah said, some of my believers have woken up believing in me.
And some of them have woken up believing in the stars and rejecting me.
So those who said it has rained because of the star, have rejected me and believed in the star. And those who said it has rained because of the blessings of Allah and Allah of Allah are believers in me and rejecters in the stars now a lot of theology here, but we don't have time for this just a very briefly. So the Arabs had a superstitious custom in the pre Islamic days, that they would attribute rain to a particular star, or a season or time of the month, any time of the, you know, more than that, you know, we cut that it rained because of such and such a cycle of the moon or such and such a star. And we have similar things in our times we have a good luck stone, we have these
types of things. We have similar types of things every culture has it. So apparently one of them remarked this in the passing that Oh, it rained, because it's the stars turn now it's that stars turn is now tonight is the, the the you know, zodiac sign, whatever it might be. That's that particular point. And there is no doubt that when the Sahaba said this, they did not mean it in their hearts because they're believers. So when you say this without meaning, and this becomes minor.
But when you say it, and you mean it, this is major shift, right? And so when we ascribe any blessing, we need to ascribe it directly to Allah subhanho wa Taala. We are not allowed to ascribe blessings to other than a law. So we do not say, Oh, I was sick, but the doctor cured me.
We do not say, oh, that house was under fire. But the firemen saved the house. This is inappropriate to say, how do we phrase it? We say I was sick. But then Allah cured me through the efforts of the doctor. The house was on fire. But then Allah save the house through the efforts of the firemen. Right, so we link it to Allah subhana wa Tada. And this is the proper other with a law. We don't just link it to secondary causes or to even direct causes. We believe in causality. causality means you throw a stone is gonna break the window, right? Believe it or not, some Muslim groups did not believe in causality. We believe in causality, but we don't ascribe blessings except to Allah
subhana wa Tada. We say, Allah azza wa jal cured us through the medicine of the doctor. So we ascribe it to Allah. And this is proven in this Hadith, you don't say it rained because of the star. And that's what we just, you know, extract from this point which occurred in the incident of today via also in the insert of today via the theological issue of Tybalt, rook with the remnants of the prophets of Salaam to Barak means to seek blessings we clearly have seen in her day be that suhaila been Amma narrated that the Prophet systems will do that even his spirit that we know other Hadith, his sweat his hair, all of this was used to get to gain blessings from and this is something that is
clearly allowed. And nobody can deny this except somebody who's ignorant or somebody who's arrogant. It's clearly aloud that we seek blessings from the body and the sweat, and the remnants of the water and the hair of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but it is only allowed for him and not for anybody else. No other person is of that level, that we go behind him and seek His Baraka and blessings that we kiss his hand thinking that we're going to get blessings from him that we get his turban and we think it's a great honor. He's given me his turban, some of the other groups have it. No, it is only the Prophet Mohammed has said that it is allowed to do about rock with the remnants.
And of course, there are no remnants of his in our times, but the Sahaba they would use that in their times. And also, by the way, there's an authentic idea that when he saw them take all of this water and all of this, he said, Why are you doing this? So they said, because we want to receive Allah's blessings. He said, whoever wishes that Allah and His Messenger love him, let him be truthful in his speech, trustworthy in his Amana, and let him not irritate his neighbors. This Hadith isn't Babylonia. And what this means is what when they said we want to get blessed by your remnants of the water. He's not saying that's wrong, it is right. But he said you really want to get
blessings than speak truthfully. And be honest in your interactions, and make sure your neighbors love you and don't hate you.
So he is basically telling them a better tactic and a better reward, even though it is allowed. But he said if you want to learn his messenger to love you then follow this tactic. Also, of the greatest benefits of ABA is the issue of other
And that is that sometimes things happen and we don't understand why they happen. And on surface it appears nothing but wrong, chaos, evil harm.
And yet Allah knows and we do not know.
And one of the fundamentals of other is to resign your fate over to Allah subhanho wa Taala it happens it happens and you expect the best from Allah. As Allah says, wiser and Takara Hussain wa hydrolock them, you might hate something, but it is good for you. And another verse, it is possible you hate something, but Allah will bring much good coming from that which you hate, which I love you hate on kathira a lot of goodwill come from that thing that you hate. And this is the perfect example here. That's the Sahaba did not understand we see the reaction of Roma. Even the process of did not know what to say other than I'm obeying Allah. Allah will help me he doesn't know how, at
the time. He doesn't know how, what is euteller Omar, Allah will help me but he doesn't understand how because at face value, it really seems like a humiliation after every single point. But in the end, we will see we already have mentioned last week and we'll see over again Are they be a was the greatest victory since the beginning of Islam in terms of conquest in terms of in terms of Congress in terms of the conquest of Makkah, it's a victory and a victory and a victory. But when it happens, who knows. So, this is a fundamental point we derive and that is called a belief and also a theological benefit from the incident of today be a very important benefit is never ever ever assume
you know better than the Quran and Sunnah.
We have statements from Komodo hottub from Sohail bin Hanif The both of them they said it to him all right, Dean, accused your own opinion before you accuse the religion
accused your own understanding before you accuse the Quran and Sunnah. The both of them have said that I saw myself almost rejecting Islam, meaning what does he mean? My bad manners were so bad. I worried that I might almost to become a Kaffir. On that day. This is what he was saying. Right? That I saw myself almost rejecting. And he also said the famous statement that if any other person had told me to do that I would never have accepted, but it's because it's the process of accepted, if any other Amida told me that I am supposed to handle Muslims back, I would never have done that. So you see how close he is. But he realizes in the end you have to submit. And this obviously this only
applies when there is an explicit text of the Quran as soon as you do not say, I think when Elon is messenger have spoken, you do not say my opinion when a lot of xojo has clearly expressed his opinion, because his opinion is fact your opinion is one it is completely wrong. So when the Quran as soon as explicit seminar now will apply. And this is demonstrated in the Treaty of in the incident of her debut, also a very interesting theological tangent, which I did not bring up. I was wondering, should I bring it up or not? But I said, What the heck Subhanallah? Let's just go ahead and mention all of the details. Right. Very interesting thing happened in the fourth century of the
hedgerow related to the incident of her debut. And that is what
a huge controversy erupted in Andalus.
Over the fact, or the question, did the Prophet so seldom read and write or not,
and one of the most famous scholars of underload, his name is Abu Walid Al badji, great scholar of Maliki fame, every family and every Maliki student of knowledge knows this name is a very famous Maliki scholar. He's from underoos. Abu and he wasn't the only one about that, and how do we and
and the other one as well, I forgot to say a number of scholars, they followed him in this, they began to claim that the Prophet system can read and write.
And this spread amongst the masses, and other scholars got involved and they said, anybody who says that the Prophet system can read and write isn't captured.
You know, the problem of calling different people cafard it's not just in Buxton, it actually happens all over. Right? It's a common thing. And it happens all the way even in andalusi. That they said anybody who says that the processing can read and write he's a cafe. Why, according to the other group, and that's the majority. At least they said that he cannot read and write and there's also my opinion he cannot read and write with I don't make tuxedo big, but they made a clear when they said why, why do you think they made
it's mentioned in the Quran, what is mentioned in the Quran, and maybe you'll owe me the unlettered prophet. So they said anybody who says he can read an ad and has rejected the Quran is a cafard. So, there was a actual court case that was brought against uglydoll Baji, who was the most famous scholar of his time
And the sole pawn had to get involved he was brought in front of the school bond. And
he was basically said, Look, your, your, all of your other ulama are accusing you of being a coffin, because you've rejected the Quran because you say the process of them can read and write. So he said, I have clear evidences that he can read and write. He said, What? Number one evidence? How do you think of a body incident of Arabia? That one I didn't refuse to erase? Mohammed Rasulullah, one version in body. And this is literally what it says. The profitsystem took the keytab.
And he did not well, I say Nikita, but he didn't know how to write were cateva Mohammed ibn Abdullah.
So it clearly says he took the book, he did it, meaning the scroll, and he didn't know how to write. And he wrote Mohammed, bin Abdullah.
Because you know, the thing of humbler Rasulullah. And he said, I'm not going to delete that. You know, that. Remember that? Right. So the Virgin and Bahati clearly says he didn't know how to read and write. And he wrote, this is what we have agreed to, and then the treaty go that Hadith goes on. So he said, this is an explicit Hadith. He didn't know how to write and he wrote,
they said, How about a Nabeel omy? He said, A Nabeel omy was when he became a prophet before he was a prophet after he learned how to read and write. So Allah describes him in the early stage. And then the later stage went,
there's no reason for him not to read and write, he learned how to read and write. So they said, how about the verse in the Quran,
when Mark quinteto, published him in Kitab, and Wallah, to hope to be aminika either not have been able to learn that you never recited any book before this, nor did you ever write with your right hand, write with your right hand,
what not to hope to be emenike and you never wrote with your right hand. So they said this is very clear. He said, this ayah is an evidence for me and against you.
Why? Because it says lahmacun lu Min cubberly. He,
from before the revelation of the Quran, you didn't recite a book or write, which means my former Mahalo for those of us who look, after the Quran was revealed, you did learn how to read and write. So and he quoted other evidences I have already confused you enough, I don't want to confuse you more than this, believe me, they could not defeat him.
They could not. Because he brought for everything that they said he brought an evidence. And in the end, the case was dismissed, because he had legitimate or onic evidences and soon evidences that they could not say that this is what he's not rejecting. And this clearly shows us that you can have some strange opinions and still not be a cafard. And it is up to the aroma. It is up to the aroma. It's not up to the lay people, the lay people do not and are not qualified to decide who's a Muslim and who's not a Muslim. It is up to the Dharma, the scholars of theology, especially to know what is good for and what is not. Right. And the master should not get involved in deciding who's a calf and
who's not a coffee. This is something that Roma do. So in the end, the case was dismissed and the position he held until he died. But it remained a minority position. And later scholars, they wrote entire treatises on this issue to refute him. And the fact of the matter is that the evidence was armato waters that he was under below me that he did not read and write and ask for the version and body that says he did not know how to read and write there's two interpretations to and then he wrote, there's two interpretations, the first of them, and that's a minority opinion as well. He wrote his name only.
And they say,
most people who don't know how to read and write, they can write their name.
This is an opinion.
But the second opinion isn't shallow, the stronger one, because we would like to stick to the Quran when it says and Nabeel Omi and we would like to stick to the one on it says that you never wrote with your hand, even though it says male probably he but it doesn't mean men by the way you did. My former mahalo is not a very strong is delighted for those who knows what that felt.
And they say
the Prophet system did not right but he commanded somebody to write and this is allowed in any language. We say the governor rebuilt the city
in English will say the the President will not the President in this case, especially the government's closed because of anything these days. The they say the governor rebuilt the highway. Okay. The governor rebuilt the highway. We all understand the governor, God forbid he would actually ever work but I mean, you know, physically he's not going to go to the trenches and dig the highways he but when we say the governor rebuilt the highway, what do we mean?
He commanded the rebuilding of the highway right?
It is allowed to speak in this type of language when it's the leader involved. So he took the book, he took the scroll, and he didn't know how to write, but he commanded somebody to write. And so this is the other opinion that is given. Okay, let's leave it to the end to show that he knows that. In any case, the majority position, which is the safer one, in any case, is that he did not go to read and write. Nonetheless, I found this interesting that we should just bring this up with her they'd be okay. These are the theological benefits now move on to the third section of benefits. What's the third section of benefits?
No fifth benefits, physical benefits from the Treaty of her debut from the incident of physical benefits, the most obvious physical benefit, the most blatant benefit, the permissibility, of engaging in peace treaties, with an otherwise evil enemy, the worst enemy imaginable. The orange were not neutral, the orange were not pacifist, rockethub, the Quraysh were not people that were freedom and democracy and whatnot, the chorus were the worst enemies the oma has ever seen, we will never have a worst enemy than the chorus. Why? Because nobody is actually opposing the Prophet Mohammed or some other than the coalition. Anytime another group, another nation, or their country
opposes Muslims, they're not opposing the process of directly correct. The only people who actually opposed the one man whom Allah sent to them, everybody else we are not the Prophet Muhammad says when an enemy attacks us, and even if they attack us for Islam, and we have had plenty of attacks and last 14 centuries, they're not attacking the process of directly. But the origin they attacked him directly. They tried to kill him directly. They expelled him directly, what greater than, and what greater injustice is that? Yet still, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, engaged with them directly, and had a peace treaty with them. And this shows us that even the most evil and the most
vile and the most crooked and the most corrupt, and the most, you know, literally, literally the most evil people, you can engage in peace treaties with them. And here the scholars have differed that does this mean that there is a maximum of 10 years or not a Mushaf vary from the Treaty of Arabia, he said, the maximum is 10 years. But you can keep on renewing as much as you want. But it has to be only 10 year increments, right. So the maximum for the halifa. And this is, of course, for the halifa. The halifa is allowed to engage in a peace treaty for 10 years with an evil enemy. Then after 10 years, he has to have another treaty, then another treaty, and he can do that. But he
cannot extend more than 10 years. But Abu hanifa and revive him a madman and others they say look, 10 years was just what the process of them did. You want to have more you want to have less, there is no limit and a shallow that is really the strongest position that it depends on the circumstances of the time, just because the process of them said 10 doesn't mean that's the max, you can have whatever is the political circumstance for this time. And in fact, some modern scholars in modern times, very famous for kaha, Dr. wahiba, Zhu Haley, that famous scholar from Syria, and also share Haleakala we as well, they have basically held positions that are unique for our times, and they
say, in light of current circumstances in light of the modern world, we can in fact extrapolate that there can be permanent peace, not just five years, 10 years, we can actually have permanent peace, if that is the way the world is expected to be, then we can have permanent peace. And this is an opinion that is also mentioned in our time. So this is the main fifth point that is derived. Another fifth point that is derived is that even though vulgarity and cursing is typically how long, there are some very, very, very specific scenarios where it in fact becomes allowed. And Abu Bakar is vile curse, it's a very vulgar curse. And to be honest, I did not even translate it properly, out of
respect. Otherwise, it is even more vulgar than what I said. Right? Don't do it. Don't do it. Don't worry, I'm not doing it. Okay. But
the fact that somebody as otherwise shy and you know, more adept at it, you know, full of other as abubaker he utters such a curse in the state of anger, to get a point across to somebody who's just insulted Islam and him and the prophets are set up. It shows us that there are some very minor exceptions to this rule, because the process of didn't criticize or or get angry at a worker afterwards. Also, we learned from this of the fifth that we learn is that the one who cannot continue Hajin O'Meara, he stops his called the more sieve he stops. So it means you're you basically stopped from going for hydromorphone. He stops where he is he uh, he sacrifices the
animal, he shaves his hair or trims his hair, and then he can resume his normal life. And this is something that we learned from the Treaty of Arabia. Also, we learned for the very first time that the rulings for a while
You can get out of them for a legitimate reason. And this is something I didn't mention before. But God had been one of the companions suffered from a major medical issue. And that was that he was infested with lice. And it was causing a lot of irritation and he was sick and whatnot. And when the processor saw him, he said, Subhana Allah, why didn't you tell me that was this bad? shave your hair off. This is while he's in Rome, while they're still waiting for the Arabia. The treaty has not been signed yet. So they think they're still going for the Ramadan. So he said, shave your hair off because the light is in the hair, shave your hair off, and then give a video, give a video feed or
faster, whatever you can do give a video. So in a harem, if you have a medical issue because of what you need to wear actual clothes, let's say, right? classic example. You know, the elderly, they have a bladder problem, let's say okay, they need to wear something to protect themselves. They cannot wear the wrong, completely legit, they must do this. And then they give a video, feeding the people or whatever, or they can sacrifice an animal if they want. So any legitimate reason for breaking from the Haram you're allowed to do that. And then you give the video this we learned from the incident of her they be we also learned from the incident of her day via the Ivanova mentions this
the permissibility of seeking the help of a pagan of an idol worshiper. Even an extremely sensitive matters and he gets this from if you remember, it means to Fianna Jose, or Bishop both are mentioned visit and Bishop both are mentioned as his name. Remember the very first envoy or spy, if you like to the process of them sent. According to him, he was a missionary. And so he says from this we derived the permissibility of hiring out or renting or trusting a mushrik against felon we should again if we really know this person, however, other scholars say Bishop was in fact a new Muslim and a convert and a secret Muslim. And so there's a bit of a controversy was vissuto Muslim or not in my
in my Sierra, I took the line he was a Muslim three weeks ago. Now I will just mention there is a controversy. And again, I reiterate my Sierra is not advanced advanced because that would really take us as it is. So is intermediate. So sometimes you just gloss over things. I'll go back and say there's a bit of a controversy was Bishop a Muslim or not, I taught you that he was a secret convert. And this is what many people in Charlotte, this seems to be the stronger opinion, however it will pay him felt he was a pagan. Even if we don't take this story as evidence, the evidence is still there, that in the hijra in the battle, in many other places, the process of actually got the
help of a pagan that was trustworthy. So it is allowed to seek help of a non Muslim enemy against other enemies if you trust this enemy, if you trust him for whatever reason might be and this is clearly inshallah the case in this year. Also, we learned from the benefits of the treaty for the BIA the permissibility, of being strictly literal about a treaty, even if it means you contradict the spirit of the treaty.
As long as you don't contradict the letter of the treaty, you're not contradicting the treaty. Where do we learn this from
women, women migrating women migrating, right? Because the treaty said, no man shall come.
And it's understood. When you say generically, man, with all respect to the feminists and whatnot, it is understood that when you say man, you mean a woman as well. But in this case, the Sahaba the process of they stuck by the letter, even if it meant the spirit is lost. Right, as long as you do not contradict the letter of the treaty, then this is something that is permissible. And also we have another evidence here, and that is that the processor was told that you're not going to allow somebody to live in your midst, but he was not told it's your job to send them back. Correct. So he waited for the kurush. He was not told it's your job to enforce. Correct. So he didn't enforce so
much. So when we will see it came back again. The process that I'm just spoke to the air and said,
What a great soldier is a mobile seat, if only there was somebody to help him. Right, meaning you had better get out before I'm forced to draw my hand. Right? So he actually allowed him the opportunity to go. And this clearly shows us that look, he was not obliged to fulfill the handing over of the Muslims, and therefore he didn't do that. The court he did not put it upon him, and he did not do that. So this clearly shows us that you as long as you follow the literal letter of the law, and you don't contradict the stipulation, you are safe in this regard. Also, we have over here an incident that took place I already said that it rained severely, and one of the days of her day
BIA and the day that it rained, most native and Asia was not prayed in JAMA. In fact the Adhan was given and when the advan time said hey, yeah, the Salah.
Hey Alan fella, the more than did not say that and the other one was changed. And we are to this day supposed to change the event in Muslim lands when the people hear the event, we're supposed to change the event when the people cannot come to the masjid. And we say, Salafi booty calm instead of Haida Sala, or in this case, the more events that Salafi halochem PRAY IN YOUR tense. And so the Sahaba prayed in their tents, because it was raining so bad. And they did not pray in Gemma. And this shows us that at times of difficulty, and this is very true, by the way, and I we have had cancellations of our Syrah and sada years ago when there's a hurricane or tornado warning or
whatnot. We say no, no, we should not come when I was in Connecticut as well. Severe.
severe winter, I mean, snow falling and whatnot. plenty of times you'll get an email that okay, no solid today even there's times of how do I remember, I didn't pray Juma and I stayed at home and our football was in the masjid. And the masjid is 10 minutes away. But there was a blizzard coming. And the blizzard got worse and worse and worse by 11am. Hamas we said no, Zuma, right? Because this is the sooner you don't put your life in jeopardy driving to the masjid and that type of circumstance. And then No, no, this is not the way Salafi bukem Salafi halochem. And we learn this from her davia as well. Also we learn but let us not act too much upon this point that we learned is that is if you
oversleep fudger right, that's not overact too much on this. But if once in a lifetime as it happened to the process of them, or maybe twice because there's an afterlife as we said, some say this happened twice and some say it happened once, even if it had been twice a paddler. For some of us that happens twice a week or twice a month that stuff would allow you know, may Allah azza wa jal forgive us. It happened to the process and maybe max twice in his lifetime, both of the times on the Jihad expedition never once in Makkah and Medina Did you oversleep never once, right. And even I say in this there is great drama from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because Allah He the best of us, this
happens to us once in a while, the best of us it happens, and, and we shouldn't feel proud of it. But we should realize it's human. That is something once in a while that happens, ask for less forgiveness and then pray to the car as soon as you can. So we learned this from the incident of her debut. Okay. With this, we now get to the final benefits from her debut. And perhaps the most controversial ones. And this is modern political thought.
I had mentioned when I started her debut that my very first Sierra lecture ever was about her debut. Before I ever spoke about the whole Sierra.
I concentrated on two stories only. And I gave those quite a while here and there. And still, I think online, I think still the audio or something might still be there. I don't think it was recorded in video. And this is the
late 90s or early 2000s. This is quite a while ago. And the two stories were the Treaty of Arabia and the slander of Arusha, that for me, these two stories were the most intriguing, each one for for personal and political reasons. And this one, the Treaty of Arabia, I felt it's very relevant. Actually, it is not late 90s, early 2000s, because it was post 2002 1001. Right post 911, I gave this post 911. And that is the Treaty of Arabia. Because the fact of the matter is, we're living in very, very difficult times. We are living in Africa, not really, there's no question that we're the end of times here. And there are so many problems, internal Muslim problems that people are far from
the religion, the rulers, Johnny had this wallet, how large they are, as they are, you know, to make matters worse, you know, there are external problems as well non Muslim governments that are affecting policies that are harming the oma policies that are political policies that are economic, you know, policies that are military, you know, so so many things going on the creation of Israel and the taking away of the, you know, land the Philistine from the people who owned it, the economic policies, anybody who studies what the International Monetary Fund is doing, the IMF and how it subjugates third world countries and you know, especially, you know, poor and Muslim countries, with
giving them large loans, and then when they cannot repay, then they start subjugating them with cheap exportation of their goods will lie, this is like highway robbery, you know, and that's why many, many non Muslims are protesting against the IMF and what what it does, because, and this is just blatant, you know, criminal, if you like behavior that's taking place, but, you know, this is the reality and all of us are suffering, at least in the Muslim lands, economic, if you like, also military, what happens, you know, in militarily around the world with, you know, drones and the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. I mean, these policies, no doubt are adversely affecting many,
many Muslims, so much so that it is a common belief in many parts of the Muslim world that the West is engaging in an all out war and especially America, they say, is engaged in an all out war against Islam. This is the belief that
Many people have and we know this belief from many people back home. Right? This is the reality that many people view all of these policies as being somehow an all out war against the religion of Islam itself. And this, in turn, obviously has caused them to react in many different ways. Many people around the world Muslim and non Muslim, all you need to do is look at South America have a revulsion of America. They hate America for what it has done to them. It's not just a Muslim thing, by the way, look at Venezuela and all of these countries, Nicaragua, there's so much animosity. And by the way, just to tell you guys will lie. If you think that Muslim lands have been treated bad, just read
what happened in Nicaragua and Venezuela in the 70s 80s. Cold read what what has happened in those lands, and then you realize that, frankly, most Muslims have not had it as bad as those countries have had it in terms of American policies. And, you know, Chomsky is one of the greatest people to talk about this. That's excellent, in fact, go into my tangents here. That's how Chomsky rose to fame and political thought, when he criticized South American policy by America, nonetheless, let's get back to our point here. So all of this has caused a lot of people to react in different ways, some of them verbally, and a small group of them extremely militant reaction. And the classic
example is allied. And this group, it claims that it is the universal duty of every Muslim to fight against the great both of our times, and many of them say it is hot on this where we get practical now, it is how long for us as American Muslims to remain in this land is not allowed for us to be living here is not allowed for us to be paying taxes, because they say that this is not faithful to the religion of Allah subhana wa tada that you are you are doing something, which is how long now much can be said much is said I myself have said a lot in this regard. You can see this on YouTube and whatnot. And I have given a lot of lectures about this point. But and I don't have time to
reiterate all of these now we're talking about per day via now. But I you know, I've given a number of lectures online, and I can reference them later on in it, can you kind of you can listen to them online. But now I just want to mention that I mean, just for your information. I do not view American foreign policy as a war directed against Islam per se. This is not my opinion at all. Yes, Muslims around the world are suffering as a result of foreign policy. But, in my humble analysis, agree or disagree, if the lands that had oil in them were Buddhist, if fell asleep, knees were Jains or Confucian, this, it would not have changed American foreign policy that much.
America does what it does, because it thinks this is in its self interest in its economic interest and its financial interest. And yes, there are lobby groups within America that are pushing certain agendas. And yes, it helps that we are the brown other it helps, it would have been more difficult if it was a white Christian civilization, no doubt. But in essence, in my humble opinion, and I believe most people who study political science would agree with this, what America is doing, it is doing not because they want to destroy Islam, but because they feel this is better for them to do for whatever reason, economically, politically, militarily, strategically, it's not something that
is directly meant to attack the religion of Islam. And Allah knows best that's really not the point here. The point here is that we, as American Muslims or Western Muslim TV and broader were accused of doing that which is how long of preferring our American identity over our Islamic identity of loving a country above loving Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I seek Allah's refuge and I know all of you too as well from ever putting my word of Allah, my loyalty to Allah subhanho wa Taala above, or secondary sorry, to any other loyalty. We believe that our loyalty to Allah and His messenger is the ultimate loyalty. And I just gave a recent lecture at Islam, which is just three weeks ago, well,
last month, I gave a recent lecture at Islam about the reality of being a Muslim in America and and speaking power, truth to power. And you can listen to that we're very explicit in this point. However, let's get relevant here. What is the davia do they be your shows us that it is allowed for different factions and portions of the oma to have different political treaties and different alliances with those who are without a doubt the aurash pure enemies of Allah and His Messenger, you can still have treaties and alliances with them.
How much more so than when there is no filler for
when the current countries we're talking about. They might not actually be fighting for the sake of religion. This is my opinion. They're not
Fighting for religion. They're not even religious people, by and large, sure there's the odd general and the governor and whatnot that are, you know, fundamentalist would not be by and large, American foreign policy does not stem from the Bible. It doesn't stem from their understanding of the New Testament. It doesn't stem from their love of Jesus Christ, it stems from their love of power and money. That's what it stems from. Right. And this is, I think, the analysis of most of us in this room. And I think, frankly, anybody who studies you know, modern political science, so put all of this together, the point being that,
from who they be, we learn, it is allowed to have alliances and treaties with some nations with some political entities, even if that nation or that entity is harming or persecuting, or even killing some Muslims. Can you imagine the personal pain, the anguish, the grief of our Prophet sallallahu sallam, as he sees Abu jandal as Abu jandal himself with blood and chain saying, you're gonna return me back to them and I just came here, put yourself in the shoes of the Muslims there. Put yourself in that camp right then and there. That's why Omar lost it. He couldn't just could not fathom this, right, how can we return this guy, but there are benefits that outweigh the personal harms. And
sometimes sacrifices needed to be need to be made in order to achieve a greater good, the Muslims in Medina. In fact, the Arabian Peninsula benefited immensely from this treaty, so much so that Allah called it a Fatah Medina, however, it most certainly did not appear a Fatah Medina, to Abbasid and Abu jandal, when it happened. When it happened, there's clearly no way they're going to say this is what I'm Obinna. It seems like nothing but humiliation. And in our times, we don't have an agenda. We don't have a bubble seal. We have the prisoners of Guantanamo. We have 10s of 1000s of avani families, Iraqi civilians that have been killed 10s of 1000s of innocent, nameless men, women and
children that have been killed in drones, hundreds of 1000s, maybe even millions, as a result of the sanctions throughout the 90s. Right. And the list goes on and on and on. These are our policies and agendas, and our heart bleeds for them. And we're very, very angry at the injustices that caused their death. No doubt in the end of the day, we believe and many scholars believe that it is permissible it is allowed to engage in these types of treaties for the sake of some good, what is that good? What is that benefit? This is something that we have to discuss, and and and debate amongst the scholars. And I believe that in light of the current circumstances, in light of the
circumstance and circumstances of the world, the political circumstances of Muslim lands, the reality is that we live in here in these lands, are afforded the opportunity to worship Allah, and to benefit other people financially, and in our teachings and in our Dharma in ways that even if we were in a Muslim that we could not do.
And this is something most of you in this room, personally realize, frankly, most of you that came here as immigrants. We're not anywhere near as practicing as you are now. This is a reality, you yourselves as most of you, there must be exceptions, most of you coming here rekindle your own faith, it made you more committed to the faith. Many of you came from lands back in the 70s and 80s, you could not practice your faith at all, especially our era brother, and that came from certain lands in the 70s and 80s. You couldn't do a fraction of what you're doing now.
And currently, as we speak, there are on the conservative side at least at least 50 million Muslims living in western democracies Western when I when talking about minorities, because if you talk about minorities, India as a Muslim minority of 100 million people, right, other lands of what are we talking about the Western Europe, France, Canada, England, America, Australia, at least 50 million Muslims living in these lands? What are we going to say to these 50 million Muslims that is watching for you to leave Go where? Which land will take them, which country will accept them? There is no philosopher on top of this, frankly, in my opinion, and you're allowed to disagree. I don't
view Western nations as being waging war against the religion. I don't view this to be the case. They're waging whatever they're waging for their own pockets for their greed. And it just so happens that one of the targets is those who are Muslim, but we're not the only target. By the way. Anybody who thinks this really does not know as I said, look at Nicaragua, look at Venezuela, look at Vietnam. Have we forgotten
nomina 17 right, what happened over there? Look at you know, Russian state is not Korea, right? Have we forgotten what's happening in those places? napalm bombings, right? It's not just us. This is the reality of an empire. So it's the hubris that every Republic feels, you know, in its time of glory. And every time of glory is followed by time of decline. And that's, frankly, we always see the beginnings of this happening as well. Right? So the point being, Western Muslims need to make a decision do they wish to enter into such a contract such a treaty with these governments in return for certain rights and privileges, many of which are not available back home, quote, unquote, by
conference, some of us for me, as I say, I was born here. And we also meet make a distinction those Muslims who are born and raised here, where do you even more, so where do you expect them to go? Right? Even more, so what nationality do they have? Which land will take them? What has to happen to 50 million Muslims. So the Treaty of Arabia teaches us that it is allowed for Muslims to have different political treaties. Not all Muslims have to have the exact same treaty. And what might be allowed for one group is not allowed for another one might be allowed one group might be held on for another. And so for Western Muslims to be living in this land, with the visa with the passport, this
is the treaty,
you cannot obtain the visa or the passport without having an understanding. And what is that understanding, you're going to be a law abiding citizen, that's the understanding, you're not going to break the law, you're not going to be treacherous, you're not going to do something that's gonna you know, go against the the security of the land, if you have such a visa, and such a passport, well, then the laws become binding, even if you see a boo, boo, boo genda, and you cannot help them you make to offer them and you say, oh, la Xhosa will make a way out for you. Now somebody will say who they be, it was unique for the prophet SAW Selim, who are you to say this is a movie now.
Right? Who are you to say a treaty with a particular entity is a victory. And so they say and I've been told this when I gave this talk previously, one of the overzealous Gemini brothers, he basically said her davia was hos for the Profit System, unique for him only, nobody else can engage in the treaty with a non Muslim other than the Profit System. And I said to him, this attitude will destroy the whole zero.
Because everything is only for him, then the general rule, anything the Prophet system does is something he's doing for us as an omen. Then he said, there are differences between our situation and her davia. I said, and do you think in any situation in the world, if you compare it to the zero is going to be 100%? The same, of course, is going to be different. There are certain things that are worse, there are certain things that are better, but the concept what what are we extracting, number one that different Muslim groups have can have different treaties, what the profitsystem could not do, a boo boo, seasonable gender could do, and that is a tactic I was of the Polish,
right? He could not do that. Omar could not do that. But he goes double gender equals take my sword here, take my sword. He could not do that. Right. But Abu jandal can.
So this leads us to a very frank issue. And that is that.
No doubt the Treaty of Arabia. It was from a law that it is Fatah. Moo Vina and no other scholar can ever claim that a treaty with a modern land is for Tamil. Vina right. But it is allowed for scholars to make he had. And we will allow the scholars of every era every society every place to extrapolate from or they be which context which treaty can be enacted. And I'll be very frank here that yes, if we say that the person with the visa and the passport cannot do certain things. That is That does not mean the whole Muslim world cannot do them. Rather, I have been very clear here that it's not my job to speak about what other societies should or should not do. I am an American, born and raised
here. I am living in this land, I have only one nationality. I speak to American Muslims specifically. And then the broader Western Muslims indirectly. As for Muslims living in other lands, there is no doubt that anybody who sees his country invaded by a foreign army, that if he defends his country and his land and his property from a foreign army, who can criticize it, and I have never in my life spoken about that issue. What I am speaking about somebody who has citizenship, somebody who has visa, they are not allowed to keep that citizenship and visa and then do something treacherous. No matter how much elbow seasonable genders they see, no matter how much Guantanamo and
drones and that's why I'm being very blunt here, that those of our you know, some point 0000 1% of our youth that are enticed into this type of stuff that are listening to this type of rhetoric, frankly, we need to tell them study the Treaty of one
dB, and realize that sometimes there is a broader benefit, in this case 50 million Muslims in the West, in this case, there is no khilafah that you can migrate to, in this case, the enemy that you want to attack is a billion times stronger than you, if you pick them with a print, they pin, they're going to throw back in an atom bomb at you, you have to be very careful about who are you playing with over here. Nonetheless, I say very explicitly, what other societies do that's between them and their scholars. My job and my role. This is a circumstance beyond my control. I was born here, this is my nationality. What I know what I will speak to is the American context. And I do
have to point out here, I mean, somehow this is besides the exact topic, but one of my main criticisms of these extremist or these militant interpretations of Islam, one of my main criticisms number one, the fact that generally speaking, they do not have scholarship amongst them.
Their scholars are Do It Yourself clerics. Their scholars are people who read 510 books, and they think they're experts. By and large, mainstream scholars of all Sunni movements. They all been the tabley reseller Fei Li Hadees, Maliki Shafi, North African Arab, Saudi poxy, the mainstream scholars, they are opposed to this type of militancy. And if you look at these militant groups, who do they resort to people that are self taught, and frankly, the only thing they know how to talk about is jihad, jihad, jihad, jihad, they never talk about spirituality, they never talk about, you know, issues of other faiths, they're not experts at all, jihad is a very deep topic. And to master
it, you need to master all the other fields. And we have scholars who have mastered all the fields and the topic of jihad, but they never go back to those scholars, they go back to their own local people, those who have never studied in the tradition, and they are not ruling by enlarge. And as I said, they are self taught. Another point that I really criticize these this group for is that the fact of the matter is that they follow opinions that may be they'll find one scholar who said this, another scholar that said that and they'll construct a method or a position or methodology that a basic understanding of the Quran and the Sunnah and of the Sierra, frankly of common sense will tell
us it's not Islamic. You don't need to have an advanced degree in Islamic studies to know that suicide bombing in the middle of a marketplace is ridiculous. You really don't need to have an advanced degree in Quranic you know, extra Jesus to know that, you know, blowing up a sheet a Masjid for no reason to just is something that will bring you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Or last week, the incident in Kenya and again, it's on our minds now, you know, any, somebody's going into a shopping mall, and literally targeting seven year old kids killing a Muslim Lady for not wearing the hijab, or separating people that are Muslim, anonymous and gunning them down Subhanallah It's
unbelievable. It's bizarre, that these people, I mean, honestly, it really is bizarre. And anytime you try to reason with them immediately, they did this day that this they did this upon a law. The people in the bazaar did this, those children, you killed it, this will law here you want to defend your land, defend it against those who are attacking, we would not say anything, people are harming you. People are harming your wife, your child, you have every right to defend against the invading army. But for you to go to a marketplace for you to go to the shopping center of the bazaar, and start targeting and killing people and forget the fact that is an Islamic completely. How about the
common sense? What is the reaction going to be? Let's look at Shabaab what what they did, right that after this, the Kenyan government has now unified the support for sending another force into Somalia. Now the reason why they attacked was that the Kenyan government had sent to force into Somalia. And they said that they had done this they had done that I don't doubt at all that an invading army is going to rape and pillage and loot. I don't doubt this. I haven't seen it. I don't doubt it. But you want to respond by going into Kenya and killing innocent men, women and children. What's going to happen? Exactly what happened after 911 exactly what happened after 911 you prick a
pin and they go back and invade. You know to have your lands destroyed completely to bring the economy to a standstill caused so much chaos in the world. What did you accomplish? Forget the fact it's an Islamic use your common sense here, right? And again, this is why I feel the Treaty of today BIA is so important that it really tells us look don't act with emotion. Don't act with emotion when you see a we will see the Nobu gender yes we have a boo boo seasonable genders will law he my heart bleeds for our brothers in Guantanamo law. He had bleeds, I make dua for them. The inhumanity of it is just it's just sad. How long will law he these people treat their dogs better than our brothers
in Guantanamo? We know this. We know this. What can we do? Make dua to Allah subhana wa Tada. Make dua to Allah make dua to Allah make our own lives.
Better what's happening in all of these other lands. So much is going on our heart bleeds for it. But there are times there are places for the benefit of the oma the breach of greater oma, what are you going to do? By as I said, pricking a pin into the toilet? What are you going to do? Forget the fact that the print that you print is actually hurting innocent people killing innocent people? What is it going to happen? What is the backlash, a lot of xojo will take care of. In the meantime, we do what we can. Now again, I want to be clear, I'm speaking to Western and American Muslims. It's not my job to speak to other societies, they decide what is to be done in their lands. For me, what I
speak to is, it is not allowed. And this is what I firmly believe for a person who has a valid visa and a passport. This is a, this isn't a manner. This is a contract that you have with a lesser partner with the other we don't lie. The moment is never a hot in the moment is never somebody who who who's a double faced trader, he never ever promises he's going to be peaceful, and then he does something else. So the one who has this passport, this treaty, they had better learned the trick the Treaty of her debut. And they better understand that it is allowed for us to engage in peace treaties with somebody or some entity that otherwise is causing great harm to the Muslims. And it is
never allowed to be treacherous. The final point, I have gone beyond my time, but as you see, there's a lot of benefits from the obeah final point completely irrelevant to the theater or Marvel political sauce, but of historical interest, just something another look to another interesting point in 1994. In 1994,
Yasser Arafat, you only had nothing to do with the quality. Yes, another fact. He made a remark in English in South Africa, in which he said this was after the Oslo treaty that was signed in Norway, if you remember Oslo, in which some Muslims criticized him, how could you have had a treaty with Israel with the Americans and whatnot. And so he said, I don't see this as any different than
the Treaty of her debut.
If the process of could deal with the kurush I can deal with Israel.
So he was criticized for this. Okay, now, a few years later, when did alpha die again?
2004 Okay, I forgot.
2004 Okay, a few when he was still alive, then in 1999, somebody whom we all know in this room. But when he wrote this, he was unknown. Danielle pipes, the leader of the islamophobes. Daniel pipes is the leader of the islamophobes. And frankly, he is the most
obese and dangerous amongst them out of all of the islamophobes. Right. And, and one of the reasons is that
he actually has a little bit of knowledge.
He's got a PhD from Harvard in Middle Eastern history. He's the only one who has a shred of knowledge. The rest of them in Pamela Geller. I mean, honestly, I think her IQ is in the one digits. I mean, you know, like it, we don't have to worry about that. But Daniel pipes, I mean, he really has a little bit, what in 1999, the very first signs of who he's going to become.
Before this is unknown. Nikita moduline. Nobody knows him. The very first thing he does, that shows his nature is Islamophobia. He writes an article in the Middle Eastern quarterly, called an obeah. And lessons from the Prophet Mohammed diplomacy.
Hence, I'm talking about it now. And typical Daniel pipes fashion, he claims that he has discovered a secret audio tape of Yasser Arafat, in which he has a hidden message for the Muslims.
It wasn't secret. It wasn't anything. He said this in a public gathering. It was recorded by many people, but this is typical Islamophobia. He said something that was supposed to be completely secret. And this is hidden language, you know, they have this notion that Muslims can have the secret language they have, you know, the code that only Muslims can hear. And non Muslims are going to go above their heads, right? We are so smart that a billion Muslims can keep a secret, right? And we can somehow, you know, just give subliminal messages to each other, and nobody else will figure out what it is. Right. So Daniel pipes unlock the code. What is this cryptography that he unlocked?
What is it that Yasser Arafat said, Oslo is like, how would they be and he has a seven eight page article, you can read it, I read it a number of times. And the point here, he says, and I quote directly from the article that the point of Yasser Arafat saying this, what is the subliminal message to the Muslims? Three points he summarizes the number one, he made unpopular concessions that will turn out well in the end, like or davia. Number two, he will achieve his goal
So what that goal is remains ambiguous. It might just be the city of Jerusalem in parallel to the city of Mecca and heard Abia or it might be the whole of Israel in parallel to the whole Arabian Quraysh dominion. You see what he's doing here? Right that he's read his what
he's reading in, how would they be to Israel?
Wouldn't that be brilliant to brilliant for Yasser Arafat Believe me, that's exactly what I say. But anyway, it's it's it's, it's bizarre anyway. So that's the second point. And then the third point, and this is, we're going to come to this in the theater later on. But this is the key point here for Daniel pipes and his ilk. And he intends at the right moment, Yasser Arafat to exploit a minor transgression to attack the enemy.
Oh, no, this is where they view this is the essence of what is the conquest of Makkah. The kurush messed up. And we'll talk about this when we get there. And the Prophet system used that mess up to attack them.
Okay, so Danielle pipe says, Don't be fooled by the Palestinians, by Yasser Arafat. This is a subliminal message he's sending to the world's billion Muslims. You guys didn't get it. Let me expose it for you The Middle Eastern quarterly, how did I unlock the code. And that code is he has no intentions of real peace. He doesn't want real legitimacy. He just wants to use this as a stepping stone to stab us in the back as soon as he's able to.
And this was the beginning of Daniel pipes. Now, frankly, I don't want to go into the issue of Yasser Arafat are the defending or criticizing it's not my expertise and whatnot. I just found it very interesting that Daniel pipes has this whole article called through the BIA and talks about you know, the back and forth and it's interesting as well how those incidents continue to play out even in modern politics even in the modern world 14 centuries ago. Right. And now this became and by the way, the article was released, it caused a huge controversy care made a big issue of it because I mean, you know, Daniel pipes This is the first time Karen Daniel pipes had a bit of a, you know,
spat back and forth. interesting how something that happened 14 centuries ago has so much relevancy in shallow with this Finally, we come to the end of our entire treaty of Abia and yes, I did go into extra detail, but I hope you understand why that I really believe that this is a very pertinent and relevant part of this era, and inshallah from next Wednesday, we will begin talking about the next major incident and that is the Battle of cyber time has run out, keep your questions inshallah, next Wednesday, I'll try to dig a little bit early, and then we can answer those questions, which is Akuma located on us and I'm heading to La Habra catch up.
