Shaykh Yasir Qadhi continues about the delegations sent and we are in the final part of this topic.
The delegations are as follows:
- Banu Hanifa – The leader was Musaylimah al Khadhab
- Azd – The large tribes of Yemen, who were placed under Surad ibn Abd’Allah al Azdi
- Himyar, from Yemen
- Banu Kuld
- Christians of Najran
And many more.
Thus, we see that in the 9 H, Islam expanded considerably in Arabia such as that from Yemen, Najran, Oman, Najd etc. Hence, an Islamic State is formed and history is created in the fact that the entire Muslim Ummah is joined under one political entity.
We learn numerous things from the incidents :
- People exhibit different levels of Iman and not everyone falls in the same stature as that of Abu Bakr RA, Umar RA and more such greats of Islam.
- Masjids can also function as a place of hospitality for the Non Muslims and there is no issue with that as is seen in the case of the tribe of Taqif.
- On the arrival of delegates, the onus is upon us to host them to the best of our ability and means as deemed fit.

Mr Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad in
today is the third and final installment of the section about the delegations of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And to be honest, I could have done one more section. But the fact of the matter is that, as you can see, these are all small stories put together, and each one might have one or two benefits. And then the if I were to do another one, it would really just be a list of tribal names. And it's, I realized that perhaps is better that we just mentioned, the most important to us what I've done the last two, and today as well, inshallah, we'll mention the more important delegations, but please be aware that the books of Sierra have listed collectively over
110 delegations by name, the bulk of them, we don't know anything other than this delegation came. That's it. And then the ones that are more interesting, I've given you some stories here and there, and today, inshallah, we'll finish up with another six or seven delegations.
And we'll begin with one of the more bizarre ones, and definitely a unique one in his own case, and that is the delegation from the tribe of Bernal hanifa. The delegation from the tribe of Verner hanifa and the leader of Bono hanifa, was most a llama advocate. So no doubt this is one of the more bizarre and interesting delegations will say the mannequins up his name is actually more Cena might have been Habib. And masala was a relatively old man may be in his late 60s, maybe even early 70s. So he was a Christian. And his tribe was a Christian tribe. And he had in his younger years gone to Jerusalem to study Christianity. So he had learned Latin, and he had taken on the customs of the
Romans. So you can imagine that such a person when he comes back to his people, how will he be viewed, so his people gave him a lot of respect. And he continued to rise in power more and more and more, until when Islam came, you can imagine him to be an elderly man who now has the respect of the entire region of the region of your mama, and your mama is up north central in Arabia. And, and as we had set up north where where the Christians typically work, and
Macedo, Mussina ignat hubby who was later called Mr. Melaka, that he his arrogance got the better of him. After being respected for so long in his tribe. He couldn't imagine now giving that up and becoming subservient to another person. And so when the delegation arrived, and remember that the purpose of the delegates was to sometimes negotiate not to embrace Islam, but to negotiate. And we mentioned already a few that he had negotiated. So the Bono hanifa, did not plan to submit. And by the way, the bundle hanifa were the largest and the worst of the motet tribes and the time of abubaker. So the redder the groups that rejected Islam, the largest and the worst, and the most
problematic were the mono hanifa. And they, as we had mentioned today actually had an interaction with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So
we'll say the AMA, as he saw his tribe split amongst the lines of Islam, because remember, Islam was spreading across Arabia, he felt more and more anger, and one of the nobleman of his tribe converted and his sub tribe, all of that converted, we talked about this nobleman, I'm not going to quiz you, I'm not going to ask you the name you I'm sure, if I were to, then you would not remember immediately, but we discussed his, this law, his his story in a lot of detail, that is filma, even the chieftain from nudged who was also from the vernal hanifa. Remember, the one who was tied in the masjid for three days, and he was captured completely, accidentally, completely accidentally, it
just happened to be going for him. And when the process I'm asked him, What do you have? What is your option? What do you want to do? So he gave that that eloquent tinge of, of arrogance, but also dignity and his response, that intellectual talk to them. If you're going to kill, you're going to kill somebody who's whose blood is very weighty.
What entire for that if you forgive, then you're going to forgive somebody who is caring. And if you want money, ask whatever you want. And you will ask the one who has plenty. So he said, I have three options. You want to kill me. You want to free me, you want to run, send me whatever you want. Here I am. And then after the third day, the process him said let him
Go. And in those three days he saw Islam he saw the Salah, the Koran. So he embraced Islam. And then he went to MCC. And he said, that I will never allow the kurush wheat and other goods until the process allows me This is commandment samama even attalus from the same tribe, I know hanifa he was another nobleman, and therefore, the tribe of the Bernal hanifa. Like all the other tribes, some of them are converting, some of them remain upon their religion. So musei Lama said to his people, that, if the process of gives me power after his death, then I shall follow him. Otherwise I won't follow this is my condition, if he allows me to be the next in charge, and he shares with me in
Prophethood, like moose shared with his brother Houghton, he has to also make me a prophet, then I will become a follower of his and we will embrace the faith. And the the the books of Syrah mentioned. His followers brought him into the masjid. And they were shielding him with fancy clots, meaning he's entering like a king, basically, a procession in our times, you can imagine they have all of these banners and everything. So already through mama sorry, not the Mama was a llama, he is being treated with such reverence we can imagine this got to his head over the course of his lifetime, and will lie This is one of the biggest problems of power, that once you taste it, really,
you get a little bit in your head, you know, you literally think people owe you something, and you think you are all that. And this is really what got to musallam that now that he was so venerated, he couldn't imagine giving that up. So his point was only if you share with me what you have, and you claim, I'm also a prophet, then we will share this matter with you. So you can see from the very start, even before he declared himself to be a prophet, that in his heart, he already had this in his mind. So he literally he had the audacity, and he was the first of the false prophets. He was the first of the false prophets, and our prophecies and predicted in the famous Hadith, that after
my death, you shall see 30 that Luna boon 30, the jars that are liars, and the worst of them will be unless you had the jar, otherwise, before them, there will be 30 other that judge on the first of them was Mozilla, and he had the audacity, right to the face of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to say to him, that if you make me You're in charge after you, and you share with me in your Prophethood, then I will follow you. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was amongst the Sahaba. And he had in his hand a branch from one of the tree and you know, you just have it in your hand, you just, you know, whatever. It's just human nature to hold something. And so he picked up
this branch and he said, that will law if you asked me for this stick, I wouldn't even give this to you. You saying you want to be the command after me. You want this stick which is for free. It's not worth anything. I will not give this to you. And the loss of Hannah Watada will deal with you and humiliate you. And I am certain that you are what Allah showed me, meaning the dream that Allah showed me. You are the fulfillment of the prophecy that Allah had warned me about an Ibis many years later he asked, I will hurayrah What was the dream that the process of referenced had been my boss at the time was barely 12 years old, had been Ibis, his knowledge came after the death of the
prophet SAW Selim, that most of his knowledge came secondhand, even though he was alive, but he's not in the thick of things. So as an older man, he asked several Herrera. What was the dream the prophets of Salaam referenced? So the process of Abu huraira said, I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say that once when I was sleeping, this hadith is embodied by the way I dated somebody. Once when I was sleeping, I saw myself wearing two bracelets of gold. And of course, that's how long to wear braces of gold. So there's something wrong with what is this? So he the process of saying that, and I felt disturbed at this, I shouldn't be wearing this. I felt disturbed
that this so it was inspired to me in the dream, blow on these braces. So I blew on them, and they broke off and rent went away from me. So they departed from the profits of the Los Alamos. So I interpreted them to be two false liars after me. So each bracelet represents a false liar and irritation, a nuisance, each one pretending or claiming to be a declaration from me but they are not they're trying to be a prophet along with me they are not. And the first of them will be the one who is from the tribe of Anna's and Annecy from Swan, Sana and this is a winner rather than NSE. We will maybe talk about it afterwards. So there was one who claimed to have and the second
We'll be musei llama familia Mama. So whether masala came so the president said you are the one whom Allah warned me about, that you are the one that I saw in the dream. And his story is well known that after he returned to his community, he wrote a letter to the prophets of the LA party who was setting them
up and of course, I am quoting the lecture and the one who quotes gopher is not Cofer. So he said from musei Lemma Rasulullah, in a Muhammad Rasulullah, look at the arrogance of this man, that from musei Lemma pseudo law in a Muhammad Rasulullah, that Assalamu alayka know, that I have been placed in this matter alongside you. Now, if he didn't give it to the process and didn't give, it didn't matter, I'll place myself alongside you, that I have been placed in this matter alongside you, and the chorus have half of the matter, and I have the other half.
But the orange are a people that go beyond transgression, they go beyond the bounds, and the prophets are seldom two of his messengers came to deliver the lecture and the process of said to these two men, what do you say about masala? So they said, We are upon what the letter says we believe him to be Rasulullah. And so the process of said Lola and Jerusalem ductal, were it not for the fact that ambassadors and envoys are not harmed and killed, that I would have executed you because this is this is Cofer. This is not. This is there's two types of gopher there's the gopher, that is corporal Asli, or the regular gopher, and this is the co founder of the cafe. If you're a
non Muslim, you're a cafe. Then there's the co founder of Reddit and beyond the line, such as claiming to be a false prophet. This is a code for that. The Sherry I will of course, execute in its domain. And so the process I said were it not for the fact that you are an envoy, an ambassador, and the rule is that ambassadors are not executed or killed or harmed, I would have had the two of you executed. And of course, this shows us many things of them is that yes, there is a protocol that is obeyed in the world. And this protocol transcends any religion. And that protocol is ambassadors and to this day, I mean, what is diplomatic immunity, the UN, every country gives diplomatic immunity to
all of the ambassadorial staff, the the the staff that works on behalf of another country, it is in the mutual benefit. And this shows us that there are laws that yes, even though they don't emanate in the Sharia, but the Sharia will approve of them, and of these laws is diplomatic immunity. And this is exactly what the process of himself said. And
masala, to the best of my knowledge, he was the first human being ever, not only to declare himself to be a prophet, but to attempt to imitate the Quranic style. And that's a whole different topic altogether. That may be a lot of effort that's a little bit advanced, but he has some bizarre statements and there's no halogen narrating some of his ridiculous statements that he considered to be the Quran and everything that is narrated from him. He's trying to imitate the verses from the Koran. So he hears the Quran, then he tries to embody the language of the Quran. So he has a sutra that imitate the pseudo telcos or that in our clinical Joa here for solid Arabic awaji in the
movies, it like a lot of judo and Kaffir that it translates as something that we have given you.
decorations or bangles or something, you know, we've given you you know,
precious pearls precious, precious materials, and now clinical Jawahar for Salonika Mahajan. Pray to your Lord and pray early, especially. Make sure you pray early. Verily The one who hates you meaningless a llama, he is a Kaffir. So he's taking sort of the Lakota and he twists it around and he tries to make something out of it. And of course, one of his most ridiculous ones, which is narrated by every single book that mentions him in his half and about Ronnie and everything. Yeah, just been to define, oh, Toad, daughter of two toads. Okay, it's talking about a toad or frog. Yeah, they've been to this line, not they come out to enough clean that continue to purify. So they would
believe in those days that the toads purify the water. This was the custom that there the belief that they had the myth that Toad somehow purify the water. So go ahead and continue to purify what you are purifying. l'alma to cut didn't neither do you make the water dirty? What a shoddy bottom nine nor do you prevent the one who drinks to drink about Seki filma within a Berkey filter clean your head is in the water and your tail is in the mud. This is his Surah Surah lifta this
The chapter of the frog. And this is something again, it's narrated in all the books. And he also has pseudo delfield By the way, right, which is the most bizarre of all of them. I'll feed him I'll feed you a maraca Melfi level then I won World War Two montavilla and it goes on and on that Alfie lwml faedo moroccanoil feel it has an amazing tale and a long snout it just goes on and on. So it is narrated that
one of the, one of the Arabs that was passing by in his time passing through his his tribe, so he asked maceda Mobutu are a prophet Yes, do you have anything like the other prophet has meaning in the Koran, so as you as I have the Quran, so he recited to him a funeral field or Moroccan oil field. So this, this Arab said, that will lie he in collateral mo aneasha? Monica,
that what law he you know, that I know, you're a liar, meaning you know, that I know, you don't even you convincing somebody that you know, that I'm not going to be convinced, and I know that you're a liar. And this and this is a testimony of somebody who at the time was not even a Muslim, that you expect me to believe this ridiculousness. And in any case, masala eventually, of course, was killed. And the war's over did that. And of course, we should all know who killed was Salem, Al Qaeda. This is something all of us should know, I hope.
Why she was she was the one who killed masina Malika that because he wanted to atone for what he had done. And so why she was the one who he literally took the same Javelin and goes, I'm going to make up for this. And he then executed masala al Qaeda. So this is the the story of the bone of hanifa. Very interesting, bizarre story. And of course, he was the first of many other false prophets. Notice, up until the coming of the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem, the Arabian Peninsula had never heard of a figure who called himself a prophet. It was an unknown phenomenon. And if you remember, correctly, is when he was questioning Abu sufian One of the questions he asked a list of 20
questions, remember one of the questions that is this a common thing? You guys have prophets preparing everywhere? And they said, No, we had never heard of this. We never heard of a prophet. And the Quran says that. They asked you what is a prophet right? The two that are common metalman needed him in public. So they said what is a profit. So the concept of a profit was something not known to the Arabs. This is something Judeo Christian tradition had, but the children of Israel, he did not have any tradition of this nature. However, with the coming of the process of him and his success, all the copycats came, right, all of the copycats began after the success of the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wasallam. There was another interesting story as well. And this is from one of the tribes of as, and this is a miracle that happened. Again, the point is each of these small stories has a little bit of tidbit here and there. So one of the tribes of as is one of the large tribes of Yemen, one of the tribes of us came and accepted Islam and the process and put in charge of them. One of the Sahaba His name is Ursula Abdullah as the and he gave him the task of conquering a neighboring tribe that was still pagan. So he said, Go and conquer this tribe. And that tribe was called simplicity sake, we'll just say the tribe of Judah, the tribe of Judah. Now, it's so happened
the tribe of Judah. So don't get confused. There's the tribe of as who is now Muslim, then there's a tribe will call them Judas, even though their name is more complicated. The tribe of Judah, sent two envoys to Medina, to gauge the pulse of the process of would he accept the truth or not? They're not Muslim. So the tribe of Judah sends two envoys In the meantime, when the envoys are on the way, the process of AR has already told the tribe of us to attack the tribe of Jewish clear, right, so when the two envoys arrive,
it's so happened that the day that they arrived, Sora, who's the Muslim commander had attacked the tribe of Judah. Now the envoys cannot know this. Because although this is happening after their departure, and to make, again, a lot more details here, but the point is that they had put them under siege for a while, and then the siege broke. And then there was a clash, and a solid was winning over the tribe of Josh. Now, the process I'm asked these two men, which tribe are you from? Because every day there's delegations coming. So which tribe are you from? They said, from the tribe of Josh from the tribe of George, so the process of them said, verily, allas camel is being
sacrificed at Josh as we speak, meaning the natural is taking place right now. The read is happening out there now what is taking place now? So they didn't understand what is this reference and abubaker and
Grossman told them, whoa, you don't realize the process of saying the tribe of Judah is being massacred. Your only hope is to beg him to ask a lot to save them.
beg him to ask a lot to save the tribe of Judah. So they said that, can you save the tribe of Judas make dua to Allah to save the tribe of Judah. So the process that I'm made to our to guide the people of Judah, guide, the people of Judah, and the two messengers were in confusion, they went back, and they figure it out that the same day they were in Medina, and the same time and the same, you know, time they're talking to the process of them, the tribe of us had actually overcome the tribe of Judah. And there was about to be a massacre, but or, you know, the winning over, but Sora decided to forgive. And so there was no bloodshed in the end. And when these two envoys told their
tribe, what had happened, so the whole tribe took this as a miracle, and they embraced Islam. And so the tribe embraced Islam, and they sent a delegation back this time, not to negotiate, but to embrace Islam. And so this is one of those interesting tidbits from this era, as well. We also learn a number of tribes came very eager to learn Islam. So a number of delegations came with the sole purpose of learning Islam, spending time to memorize the Quran, to study filth, and to ask some very interesting questions. And perhaps the most interesting question that was ever asked was from the tribe of the hammer, the hammer writes, and the hammer are one of the tribes of Yemen. And it is a
very famous Hadith narrated in Bukhari and Muslim which has generated a lot of commentary in the books of theology. And I'm just going to reference it now without going into the theological tangents. And this is the hadith of Mr. Hussain that Mr. Hussain rhodiola. One was saying that when I was sitting in the masjid, the delegation came firstly from Nigeria which is up north before the heavy arts from down south. The Banu Tamim, who me more determined is from up north, and they came announcing Islam.
So the process that I'm set up Shirou I give you good news. Oh, people have to mean meaning you've accepted Islam. I give you good news meaning of Jenna. Give glad tidings up to the people from up north were considered to be crude and harsh Bedouins. This is the up north generally speaking from the Hejaz, the Hejaz was considered to be the more cultivated of Arabia. And so the people of North were considered to be the more Bedouins and this is where most of the Azov also came from. And other other problems conflict came from up north. And so when the processor said, Good news rejoice, they understood, good news means you're giving us something good. That's the only reason you would be
happy giving us money, basically. So they said the Bashara 10, IRS would allow for artina you're giving us good news. So give us then the money.
Right, they only understood good news to be money. So the processor was silent. He didn't say anything, then as he's waiting there, and they shows us his job as well, that when somebody misunderstands, and they and they're being crude, just ignore them don't have to get down to their level. And as they're waiting there, the Hemi rights arrived, the Hemi rights from Yemen, down south. And they arrived. And the Prophet sallallahu Ali and they also announced their Islam. The Prophet system said that, oh,
people have a hammer. Except the good news. Since the people have been who Tamim did not accept it. Right? You get a double good news, right? Except the good news is that people have been rude to me, did not accept it. So they said, We have accepted this news. You know, meaning Thank you accept this good news. And we have come all the way from Yemen asking you about this creation? And how did Allah created and how did it all begin? This is a very deep theological question. How did the beginning come about? Right? Tell us about the beginning of creation. So you can tell these people from him you have our very deep philosophical minds, if you like for the time, they're wanting to ask the of
the greatest questions imaginable. And that is, tell us about the beginning. How did it all begin? And Mr. imonnit percent is narrating the Hadith. And he said that the process of him said, Can Allahu Allah mucuna Kabbalah who Shay there was a law and there was nothing before Allah subhana wa Tada. And he then created the heavens and the earth, while his throne was on the water. Now pause here. So all of this shows, and I said this a few weeks ago as well, that the heavens and the earth are not the only creation of Allah because the Hadith itself says he created the heavens and the earth what kinda out of shoe who Island man. So there's out and there's, there's things before the
creation of this world. And that's the point of many of our scholarships which have been taken
Others who said that Allah has created other creations other than this creation, this creation around us is not the only creation and this hadith is one of the main evidences that is used and that's a whole different tangent now getting back to this Howdy. So the process of is telling them Allah did this and Allah did that then and what I have never seen said as I was sitting there, somebody yelled out to me in the masjid, or Emraan your camel has fled. So Emraan rushed out of the masjid because you know your camel you tied outside the masjid. He said, I saw my camel fleeing in the desert and I ran after it. Neither did I get the camel nor did I catch the Hadith. How I wish
now I had let the camel go and finished that Howdy. How we wish as well he had let the camel go and got the Hadith because the delegation went back to Yemen and they did not narrow it to us the books of you know they did not become scholars have added and Milan is a madonie is an unsightly he did not finish the idea for us for our wisdom known to Allah subhana wa Tada.
And by the way, there are other delegations that came from Yemen, and some how to love so many of these ahaadeeth praise the people of Yemen that the Prophet system said Howdy. This is a Muslim, that the people of Yemen have come to you. They are the ones who have the best of souls and the softest of hearts are either they have the softest of hearts and the best of souls. And then he said that famous phrase, a man who human will hikma to Yamani. Yeah, that faith is Yemen, Yemeni, and wisdom is also Yemeni. As a man Oh, Mr. Nene well, hikma to Yama de Yeah, this is a famous Hadith, praising the people of Yemen and of course in Sahih Bukhari as well. That the process of said a
llama baddeck Lana fish Amina Wolfie Yemen, Nina, Allah bless us in our Sham and in our Yemen. And it's very amazing that when he said this Hadith, technically neither Sham nor Yemen was under Muslim control. Neither Sham nor Yemen was under Muslim control. Yet, he said, Oh, Allah bless us in our Sham and in our Yemen. And then the fact that he's calling it our Sham, and our Yemen means that these are the places of the people of Islam. And he said this. And then a man said, How about nudged or messenger of Allah? And the scholars differ, which nudge is referenced here? Is it the narrative central Arabia, or the stronger opinion, they would also call up north, which is where Iraq and
others is another also called that nudge that area? How about nudge, and the process then repeated a lot about it. And if you show me an hour for your money, so they said for the second time, how about our nudge, so he repeated, again, Sham and Yemen. Then for the third time when they said nudge, so then the process of him pointed towards us. And he said, from there come desert, Zilla Zealand, a Phaeton and the man from them will come the earthquakes and the problems and the trials and the tribulations will come from that region. And this shows us as well, that the people of Sham and of course Sham includes Philistine and would be called Syria. All of this is a sham is also blessed by
the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And
in a very beautiful Hadith as well, our process of them said that I will be the one who is in charge of my fountain, my house on the Day of Judgment, and I will be the one to make sure that people make space for the people of Yemen, and I shall be beating with my stick until space is made for them. I did this as a Muslim, which means the people of Yemen will have the first access to the health of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And the number of Hadith about Yemen is indeed, many. And by the way, Yemen would include therefore the unsought because the Ansari or Yemeni in their awesome, remember, where did they come from the unsalted they are Yemeni in there, right, the oats
and the huzur. Raj, they go back to Yemen. So all of the praise of Yemen is also appraised for the unsought and of course, it includes those who converted from the people of Yemen. And in Shell Osama bin Tamia. He says that the people of Yemen were the ones who were at the forefront fighting the people of Libya, and they open so many lands, and it was through them that Allah subhana wa tada brought about much good for the believers. Remember, once I was teaching a class, I think it was in Detroit. There was three Yemenis there. So I you know, I might as part of my class, I go, where are you from? So they go from Yemen. So I went into a tangent talking about how great Yemen is, and
whatnot. And I said that we're lucky, my brother from Yemen. I am jealous in a positive way of the praise that the process of gave to all of you that hikma to your mind will be mono Harmonia, the new spread and the empathy community. The next is a martial arts of watercolor. 50 people show up
to the class like they wanted to hear it all over
Mashallah. So I became very popular with the Yemeni crowd. I said this is the the bulk of the prophets of Salaam, this is Yanni what he said about you guys.
But also in Yemen, what happened a few months after this a few months after this after the Hajj of Abu Bakar, that the one of the kings of Yemen. So Yemen is an interesting phenomenon. By the way, Yemen was separate from the from Arabia, in many ways. Firstly, they were majority Christian, and also many Jews were there. And by the way, Jews remained in Yemen up until 1947, or some of the largest concentrations of Jews in the world outside of
Iraq, maybe second would be Yemen, I think, right? I mean, I'm not sure of that. But before the creation of Israel, Yemen had some of the highest concentrations of Jews, up until the time of the creation of Israel, and this is well known. And to this day, there are I myself have met many Israelis who are basically descendants of Yemeni, Yemeni Jews, and they still speak Arabic, and they consider themselves to be pure yahood. They don't think that Europeans are as pure as them, they view themselves to be the the good lineage. And they have different slightly different customs and culture. point being that Yemen was different, because there was little paganism there. Yemen
typically had more Christians and Jews, this is different from the rest of Arabia. And also another thing about Yemen was that Yemen was divided into small mini kingdoms. And this is also different because Arabia was not divided. So there was a little bit more stability and civilization in Yemen, than the rest of Arabia. So one of the main kings of Yemen from him, he accepted Islam and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent, why they've been able to become not the governor because the king remained the governor, but to basically be the deputy. And one can say the judge, the colleague, and this is the famous incident that the process of is walking with why they've been
Java. Right. And he accompanied him while he was on the the, the the animal, the the horse or the camel, and the process is the one walking and this is a great honor from wife that the process of is the one walking holding on to it. And he gives him a lot of advice. And he tells him Oh, wow, you're gonna go to a group that there are people have a helicopter, make sure you call them to tell him if they listen then tell them to pray. If they listen then tell them to give Sikka so that famous Hadith. And also in the end, he said, Yeah, mas. It is possible. I'm not going to see you after this. Right. And this is a the the farewell tomorrow they've been given. And this took place, not
now, but in a few months from now. So I'm just lumping it all together. This took place after the hedge of Abu Bakar not the hijab, the process of the hijab boubakeur, we will do inshallah, next Wednesday, and that is the Hajj in the ninth year of the hedgerow. The process of did Hajj in the 10th year, right. So after Abu Bakar returns within a month or two, he then sends me off to Yemen. So this is occurring A few months after what we're talking about right now. And he also sent our musala Shadi to another province of Yemen. So Yemen is embracing Islam and mass that large segments of the Yemeni community is embracing Islam, and SubhanAllah. the ease with which overall, the people
of Yemen embraced Islam, it did not happen anywhere else in central Arabia, or in or northern Arabia. So out of all of the Arabian provinces or areas, the people of Yemen were the easiest overall to embrace Islam. And that's why one of the reasons why I processed them said the people of Yemen are coming to you. They are the best of hearts and the softest of hearts. And that's why he said he man is Yemeni, and wisdom is Yemenite. Right alamanda mindarie hikma to your money. So this is all of this is praising the people of Yemen. And as he sent more either bingeable The last piece of advice he gave him is make things easy and don't make things difficult. And give people glad
tidings and don't turn people away and cause people to come together and don't cause people to dis unite. why this is such a beautiful advice. Don't make Islam difficult. Look at the level of the people and then do what is Manasa for them. Right? Yes sir. Make it easy What else do I say don't make it difficult for the people people are at different levels and your job or why the bingeable when you go there is you bring people Bashir wallet when a feudal being give good news, bring them closer and don't turn people away by making things too difficult and well I sad to say that so many people, they really so many Misha can aroma and to art. They make Islam so difficult, even if
sometimes they say something that's true, they say without wisdom without the appropriate context or talking to people that are not ready for it. Look, here is why they've been Jebel being sent and he is who he is. yet. The President says make it easy for the people. Just be gentle with them. If only we all
understood these same things. Also another delegation. And again, these are small tidbits here.
One of the things very interesting things about all of these delegations is that we see so many a hadith about fish and Al Qaeda, narrated from people who are not famous for hobbies at all, rather than one time. So heavy means the delegates, that some of the standard,
a hadith about fick and even theology are actually narrated from those people who came to these delegations, which shows they came to study Islam, and they came to study fifth. So when they go back, and they narrate to their people, their ahaadeeth become the standard hadith of fifth. And one of the simple idea that in fact, I've discussed this in so many other my other fifth classes, it was narrated by somebody who came from one of the delegates of Yemen as well his name is Ma, we have been Haider, that he's asking messenger of Allah, what messenger of Allah what is allowed to show of our what is allowed to not show what must be cover, what must we not cover? So the famous hadith of
Allah, and there's only one Hadith that really is explicit about the hour, it's narrated by somebody who only saw the process in once in his own life, and he's on the delegates. And this shows us that the delegates are wanting to study for an athlete that they're asking questions of a very, you know, nature that benefits and of course, the process of adjustment, Bobby FIDE, what did he say that he said, that cover your hour?
from everybody other than your spouse, that's the only person you you don't have to have the hour. So while we said that, what if I am all alone? What if there's nobody to talk to I have to still cover? Then what is the process of saving a loved one, you stay I mean, that there is more right upon a lot that you be shy of him that don't go walk around naked, even if you're alone in the house, cover yourself up. Allah has more right that you cover yourself. So the Heidi shows us about the realities of the hour, we also learn that many of them came just to get the two out of the Prophet salallahu idea he was sending. So we have delegates who were martyred such as Mozilla, we
have delegates who are non Muslim, they just want peace treaties. We have delegates who are hypocrites. We talked about them last week, right? that's similar to what was revealed. And the LA Zoo just says you haven't yet accepted Islam. Right. And we have delegates whose Eman is weak, they're not too sure. Then we have delegates whose eemaan is so strong. The only reason they're coming is they want the process to make dua for them. Which is beautiful reason right to go all the way there and say Allahu Allah make dua for me. And we have in this one one narration from the tribe of the uncouth that will happen live in heaven. And this is again one of the Sahabi we don't have
any narration from him other than this, that literally one time so habit, as we would say, he just comes once to the process and him that he said, we were around nine people from the tribe who came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we entered in upon him and we said, Gee, Naka Rasulullah, we have come to your messenger of Allah, so that you may pray for us for all good. Make dua to Allah for us. That's why we've come then we want your da. So the promises are made to our for us, and he took care of us and he was hospitable to us. And he fed us and we stayed in Medina for a few days, and we pray Joomla as well. So they got one Juma with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said, I
saw him giving Joomla holding on to a stick or a bow. So it was the son of the process of that he would have a staff when he's giving. And in fact, it wasn't just his son. It was also very common culture and custom of the time that when you give a lecture or a sermon, to give that sense of dignity and respect, you will hold on to a staff and I remember one phrase in the hotel bar so he's narrating now I remember one phrase in the hotbar that all people now pause here. Remember, this is the year of delegations every Joomla you have total strangers that are only listening to one hold but new Muslims right and then they're going to go back to their people. So he says I remember one
phrase in this book, and this phrase is corroborated in many other Hadith that he said the process Some said oh people do what you can and know that you will never be able to do everything that you have been commanded to do. meaning you're not going to be perfect. You will never be able to do everything you have commanded to what I can said they do work on a boo, right that you and this hadith by the way the celebrity isn't Buhari, you'll find the the original Hadith and Bahati, all of this this details. We find them in the tertiary works. But the basic idea is and body that the process that I've said that you will never be able to do everything that you have been commanded.
What does this mean? It means you're not going to
To be perfect, you're going to make mistakes. So what should we do when I can set the due walk horrible, but rather set they do what they said they do mean is to
just cover up and come closer, like just fill in the gaps. Right. So if you have a gap missing here, fill it up somewhere else. If you're not able to do x dou y, what are a bu kalibo means come as close as you can to what you're supposed to do. So, if you're supposed to do 100%, you can't do 100 don't give up. So I'm going to do zero, at least do the 90 maybe a level forgive the 10. Okay, this is what coreboot means is that come as close as you can to the goal, even if you can't reach it, but in the effort maybe Allah subhana wa tada will accept from you. So this is a beautiful Hadith and it is narrated by many different Sahaba. But in this narration, we learned the one who's hearing it is
one of the delegates and he's saying, well, this is what we heard, our Prophet says alum say. Now the final incident, which is a long one, is probably one of the more interesting ones.
And has much benefit, and that is the delegation of the Christians of natural on the delegation of the Christians of Iran.
Iran, of course, is a very famous province, to this day in Arabia, and the people of Iran at that time were almost entirely Christian. And they had strong relationship with the Roman Emperor. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi. wasallam had sent them a letter a few months before this, and he had addressed them in the name of the God of Abraham and his heart and Yaqoob, in the name of the God of Abraham and his half. And he called, and he said to them, that he invited them to Islam to worship Allah Subhana, WA Tada. And he said, If you accept, it will be better for you. Otherwise, you pay the jizya. And if you refuse to do the both, then you must fight the battle. These are the three
options. So they gathered together the people of Iran, and they made sure amongst themselves, what can we do? What should we do? Which of these three options should we accept? One of them said, we know that there's a prophet predicted in the bunny is married. How do we know this isn't that one, maybe this is the one that we know is coming from the bunny is married. And this shows us and we know this from so many other narrations, they were expecting a prophet. And frankly, there are clear indications to this day in the Old Testament, that there shall come a profit from the children of Ishmael, there are clear indications and the people of Iran are attesting to this that we all know
there's going to be a prophet, maybe this is that one. How do we know we should send a delegation and another said, even if he's not a prophet, if he's a king, we should know his strength to see which of these three options we should follow. And so all of them agreed, there's only one option, and that is we send a delegation directly to Medina and figure out judge for ourselves what is to be done. And so they decided to send a large delegation, even as half mentioned, 60 people came. So this is one of the largest delegations ever, typically a delegation will be two men, five men, 10 men, this is a delegation of 60 people that had come and of course, the purpose is, is many,
firstly, to impress supposedly, the Muslims and the process of them, that we are so large and so many, and secondly, to gauge and to see, you know, what is the reality of the situation? So, the, the event is, how can others I mentioned that when they entered in upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam, they were all dressed in a very unique garb. So again, these are not the pagans of Arabia, these have a civilizations similar to the Romans, so they're dressed more like them, whatever we can imagine their culture, they're there. And of course, now john is far away from the center of Arabia. And so when they came in the Sahaba, we had never seen any delegation like theirs,
their custom, their manners, their clothing, everything was different. And they arrived at the time of acid.
And it was time for their Salah. So they asked permission to pray their cider.
And the Sahaba wanted to say no, but the Prophet system allowed them to pray. He allowed them to pray. So they turn towards the east,
because the Christians have old, I don't know if modern Protestants do that. I don't think they do. But the Christians of all, definitely, they would turn towards the east. And still to this day, some Christians, the Syriac Christians and others, they turn towards the east, and they say their prayers, their their rituals, so in the masjid of the Prophet Solomon
While he was setting them, they offered their salah
and facing east would mean that they are facing, not Dr. Bala and not away from the table, but rather, they're going to be facing
the right if you like, right. So there will be I mean sorry, in the message there'll be turning left excuse me, and the modern must do the the processor.
There are bracing left, right, they'll be facing this way. Okay, so they all turn towards one of the walls. And they said their prayer in the masjid of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. And this is a very interesting and significant point. And then when they had finished their prayer, discussions and dialogue began for Allah knows how many days a lot what I would say maybe three days they remained in Medina not too long. Three days there are made in Medina, maybe you can say four days but I don't think more than that we can see from the reports. So on the first day, they asked many questions about a seven Imodium, what do they say about a seven Imodium? And eventually they
asked to the process of them a question that if you agree with us so after a long day of conversation, the final question, if you agree with us that Lisa was born of a virgin, then who is his father,
who is the father of Jesus? And our prophets are seldom said, I don't have an answer for you. Now, let Allah answer you. So wait for me and Allah will answer you. So the next day they came and Allah revealed the first 60 verses of surah Allah in Milan,
Milan. Now, much of alumilite had already been revealed at Oxford. So the middle of Allah and Milan was revealed at Oxford, but the beginning of earlier and Milan is revealed now. So the beginning of Allah and Ron goes to the ninth year of the hedgerow. So in it, Allah subhana wa tada says, In the masala Isa and the LA he come SLE, Adam Hall, aka homie, Rob, some makalah who can fire cool. You're asking about the father of Jesus. How about Adam?
The symbol tattooed of Isa, in the eyes of Allah is like Adam, he created Adam from dust and said he couldn't, and he was meaning he doesn't have a father. He doesn't need a father, that Allah simply has to say Kuhn. And he is and then
of what they were saying as well is that
is Ibrahim A Christian or a Jew? And of course, they were saying he is a Christian. And it is said that, you know, some people said no, he was actually a Jew in there. And Allah revealed in the Koran, and this is their modern mark and Ibrahim yahudi. Ian Wallace Rania work in Canada, hanifin muslimah. Womack and amener, Michigan whenever you come to Michigan. So all of this comes down in this incident, and in this surah, as well as sort of LA and Milan are the famous verses called to the MOBA, holla, or the verse of mutual cursing. MOBA means you invoke the curse of Allah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, for enhanced coffee by the merger coming at me, supple charlo. Now
when he said that when he said, one full Santa one full second, so man, abita, Hill, financial Lana to LA, he will catch up, that if they're still going to argue with you, after all of this was is now the second day, so the end of the second day of arguments back and forth, back and forth. So then the process of said, Hello Is this is it. If you still believe that you're upon the truth, and we're worshiping the same God, then there's a simple solution. You call your children we call our children, you call your women we call our women you bring yourselves will bring ourselves, then we shall invoke upon whichever of the two of us is lying about Allah, may Allah curse that party.
Okay, so this is a very big curse, because both can't be correct. Both cannot be correct in this issue. Either Jesus is the Son of God and divine or he's not. And if you believe that we are telling a lie about the law, then go ahead and invoke the curse. But it has to be upon the one who's telling a lie, because we believe you're telling a lie upon Allah subhana wa tada when you say that he has a son. So this was a very big deal. And by the way, this shows us that mobile holla is allowed on rare occasions. It's not the it's not the general rule. But once you get to the end of argumentation, and there's a lot of benefits inshallah we'll come back to this at the end of today, but jumping the gun
here, but once you get to the end of legitimate argumentation, there's no problem and saying, okay, call us if you are that sincere
Then let's do more bahala. And MOBA. Holla literally means may Allah be upon the party that is lying between the two of us. Okay? This is not how you begin our This is how you end it if you want to, that's an option that is there. And why do we Why do you call your children and your wives, then you call yourselves because it's much more painful to see Allah on them than on you. Because Allah, I mean, you will see the effect. Right? So you start with your children, and your wives and yourselves. And the next day, the prophet SAW said that he had readied his family, his daughters and has an Hussein and others and this is a debate
that she I used this as a very big deal and for us know what this is added. But how is that a problem? Yes, that is either way doesn't mean that, you know, it was the one entitled don't mix apples and oranges. Yes, that is added bait. Of course it is who's going to deny that so he had the lol bait ready that if they want to remove it, we will do mubadala. But in the meantime, the Christians have an agenda on discussed amongst themselves. And they said amongst themselves that, you know, if he is a prophet, and we do this curse, we shall be annihilated and obliterated from the face of this earth.
So let's not do this mobile app.
So the next day, they said, We
decline the mobile header. And we accept the jizya.
Go ahead and give us the cheese. Yeah, we're not going to leave our religion. And we declined the MOBA x, we will accept the jizya whatever, unconditional basically, Jews Yeah. And so the process and put upon them a jizya, which was reasonable a certain amount of cloth every year, and a certain models silver that people have drawn, because they imported from both Persia and the Roman Empire. So cloth and I said many times cloth was a commodity cloth was not manufactured by the Arabs. And so cloth was a very, they would export, what would they export? leather hides was the main export, right? So this was the main export, and they needed cloth for it. So the processor said to them,
this much cloth per year, and this much silver must be given as jizya for as long as Allah wills, meaning this is not a permanent can
is a negotiable treaty, that anytime we want, we can stop this treaty. And this was the wisdom of the processor that he never made a treaty forever. He actually had a treaty that has some clauses that we have the right to rescind if we want to. And of course, by the way, later on 15 years later, or whatever, Bob said, We don't need your money anymore, go to Rome. And so most of them left for the Roman Empire, because I wanted to make the Arabian Peninsula purely a Muslim region. And because of that, because of the wisdom of Roma, the entire region is a Muslim region, there are no indigenous people who are non Muslim. Correct. Indigenous, of course, you have laborers and workers,
but indigenous people of that entire Arabian peninsula, all of them are Muslim, because I'm what I'm gonna call Bob was the one who expelled there were pockets. There were no pagans. After the ninth year, we'll talk about that. But there was still pockets, if you like, especially in central Arabia, after a meal hot tub. There were small people of the hood here and there. But otherwise the entire peninsula was a Muslim peninsula. And the people of Iran said that, can you give us a judge to resolve our internal affairs because we see you to be honest people. So this shows us that they were having internal disputes amongst themselves. And they wanted a neutral party to be some type of a
judge. So the Prophet system sent about obey the ambit of Nigeria for a while to Nigel on to be their judge that in case they have some dispute, and I'll be happy in his delight in a boy, he now has an interesting story.
Then on the way back, and by the way, in his house, they mentioned that there were 60 and number 24 of them were from their elite are noble. of them were three who were some type of clergy or bishops and of them was one who was some type of patriarch. So these are terms that their Christian church had, but they had some very senior officials in the delegation. So they have dimensions on the way back. The patriarch or the senior most figure, one of his younger brothers, said something derogatory about the Prophet sola, sola. And the patriarch said, Do not curse him. So the brother said, why the patriarch said that, because he is the Prophet. I mean, this is the one that's been
predicted. So the patriarch is now admitting he is the Prophet. So the brother says, Why didn't you accept him then? I mean, I thought he's not that's why we're following you.
Right. So the patriarch says that, do you wish us to give up all of the honor, and all of the wealth, and all of the ties that the Emperor has given us? Which Emperor is the Roman Emperor? Right, that you expect us to now cut that off? I mean, how can we do that. And so when the younger brother heard this, he was so shocked that he actually defected from the tribe, and he became a Muslim, and came to Medina. So the point being that, from his narration, we learned that indeed, the senior amongst them recognized, whereas the middle and most of them, you know, they just followed the senior. And somehow, this shows us the importance of the elite, that the fact of the matter, the
bulk of mankind simply follows. Certain people, they look up to them. And that's why our processes emphasized reaching out to those, the higher tabaka, the highest group, that if they convert, and if you look at it, whenever the chieftain converted, whenever one of the nobleman converts, then it becomes easier for the rest to convert. And this is the reality the son of Allah, amongst his creation, this is the reality. And therefore, people were genuinely following the patriarch. And when the patriarch confessed to his younger brother, this his brother, when he confessed to him, so then the brother show shocked that he actually embraces Islam. And
some of these delegations
were. So the delegations are so different. Some of them were Muslim, some of them were pagan, and wanting to establish treaty, some of them were Christian, some of them were wondering, should we convert or not. And there's a beautiful Hadith. And with this, I conclude, this is the delegation, led by Abdul Rahman, even a IB Athlete of the attain one of the Sahaba, the only thing we know about him is this one. Because again, if you're a part of the delegates, what does that mean? You only saw him once you didn't participate in it or whatnot. So there's a whole category of Sahaba, that they are the ones who were the delegates, and the delegates are not to the level of the balloon, or the
people who participated in her baby or whatnot. The delegates are these one off, right, there are still so heavy, and there are still respected, but you cannot compare them to the people who lived with the process. And so one of them is, Abdullah have now played that he says, I was one of those who went in a delegation of our tribe to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And when we asked permission to enter in upon him, there was no one in the world whom we despised more than the one that we were forced to go, see.
He's talking about his tribe, they're telling him to go, you have to do a negotiation, that when we went, the most despised person to us was the one that we had gone to see. But when we ended up leaving, there was no one in the world, more beloved to us, than the one we were departing from. Look at how the flip, right, that this is also understandable that some people are coming, thinking that they're going to be humiliated, that our tribe has now to give up its freedom, that we are now having to give up idolatry and accept a new faith. They're angry, they're hurt. And so they're treating the process of as a conqueror, that we don't want this person. But then when they see him,
and they interact with him, so they said, After these few days, he becomes the most beloved person to us. And then he says, one of our youngsters said, O Messenger of Allah, why don't you ask your Lord to give you a kingdom like the kingdom of Solomon, right, so they become a king, like the king of Solomon. So the process of laughed and said, Maybe your companion has been given a kingdom better than the kingdom of Solomon, meaning what I have is better, don't worry, what I have is better. And the process of said that a law has never sent any profit, except that He has given him one request. And some of those profits asked for something of this world. Some of them asked for punishment
against their people. And as for me, Allah has given me a request that I have kept with myself, between me and my Lord, it shall be my chifa for my oma on the Day of Judgment. So I said, I have the better Kingdom than anybody else, because my entire people will enter agenda inshallah, who to Allah. And before I finish off just a few minutes that
I mentioned most of the interesting and important
delegations. I also have to briefly mention, even though we don't do this for much of the Sierra, but sometimes we have to mention bizarre and fabricated and weak narrations. We do this when these narrations are used to embarrass Muslims or
or they're used by unorthodox groups of Islam. So some of the tertiary books of Sierra are not the primary books.
Some of the more secondary and tertiary books of Sierra, they mentioned some very bizarre stories. And I just mentioned them now, they are not authentic. I just mentioned the now so that sometimes you hear them, especially in the books of the extreme mystical Sufi, sometimes you hear these groups, and one of them is actually very funny. The first of these it is narrated in one of the tertiary books of Sierra naughtiness acknowledged famous was that I'm not going to mention the name. It's one of the more obscure ones that the great grandson of a police came to accept Islam with a delegation.
The great grandson of the police came to accept Islam, and he repented and whatnot. And this is of course, not true in the muscle recovered hacking, which is a famous book of Hades, but it has lots of weakened life and fabricated ideas. And then we'll start to recover hack him. It is mentioned that ilias alayhis salam, the Prophet ilias came as a delegate, and a table from heaven came down and they had dinner together.
And then when the dinner was finished, ilias went up into the heaven, where he came from. Right. So I mean, this is what you read it and you know, something is bizarre, right? The fast fast food? No, no, this is up there. It just goes there. And in the elbow. Sorry, Ronnie's cable Oh, swords. And Oberon is also is a book that he intended to compile the most bizarre had it not the most authentic, the most obscure and strange, Heidi, and also a camel, why an ID. And this is a book that is meant to narrate life Howdy. So this is the ridiculous thing that when you read sometimes a book and it says to you narrated by Eben ID in his cabin, you wonder what this person is doing? When he's
narrating a hadith from a book that is known to collect fabricated heads like the purpose of the author is to collect fabricated Hadith. You understand my point, right? That his purpose is, I want you to be aware of these headings, then you come across somebody, and he's quoting from it as if he's quoting from body or Muslims, like I have told you where I got this from this is my reference, right? So in this in this narration, which is also very long and obscure and bizarre. It is said that one day, the stranger came to the masjid that the prophets lie Selim. And he made a beautiful draw along in Niala, Eugenie Maha wife, Danny, which is very sophistic language, and it's something
that is clear is a fabrication of the Sophie's, and so the process of smiled and then added a couple that are added a line, why don't you add this to the door as well. And there's a back and forth between the true finally it is discovered, who do you think this person is?
huddle, huddle came as well as the delegate. Okay, that also came as a delegate. So all of this is, is all fabrication. And I just wanted to point out so that we are aware, no, ilias, no header, no, she, even if she thought nobody came, this is all from the fabrications of bizarre groups and not mentioned in the books of serum. So to conclude all of the delegations some of the benefits we gained from this, and then inshallah we're done with the delegations. What we see especially in the ninth year of the hedgerow, how quickly Islam spread amongst the tribes of Arabia. We have delegations coming from the north, from the south, and from the west, east. Sorry, there's Dawn is
the east, right? Of course, West is the Arabian Peninsula, the Red Sea, there's nothing West. Okay. So now john is out. Excuse me, john. is south, South West. nitronic. South West, isn't it? Yeah.
But Yemen is direct south.
JOHN is just above that way. Right, isn't it? Yeah.
You're right. You're right. You're right. The same road goes exactly. So above Yemen would be Iran. So we have delegations coming from the Iran from Yemen. We have delegations that came from Oman. We mentioned that last time. We have delegations coming from north from nudged, right. So all of these delegations coming. And we're at NASA holography De La Jolla, Florida. So this was the year that without military campaigns, these are small tribes, each one of them is independent, they realize they cannot remain as they are when everybody's embracing they to either embrace or they enact a treaty for two pages. Yeah. And therefore, Islamic State is consolidated. And this is the first time
in human history that the Arabian Peninsula was consolidated by one political power. Never before in the history of humanity had all of the Arab tribes been consolidated under one rule, and this shows us that the fruits of peace
are always going to be sweet and always going to be a love fulfilled his promise to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It also shows us that even in the time of the process that people have different human
that we have this naive assumption that everybody was like a walking Djibril on Earth. Everybody was like animal buckhannon. No. In these narrations, we see one afternoon, we see pagans, because, right up until this point in time, paganism is still allowed, is going to become forbidden. In a few months, right? We see people have weak eemaan that are Muslim but not good Muslims. They're boasting that Yamuna deaconess, llamo, they're boasting Yeah, I accepted Islam. We see people Mashallah the strongest Eman. We came all the way out solo you make do out for us. We see people wanting to study Islam, asking filk asking theology questions. So even in the lifetime, the process of all of this
spectrum is there, and of the most amazing things we see. And think about this, my dear brothers and sisters. Many of us assume that Islam
is so simple and clear and easy that all I have to do is open my mouth and everybody will embrace it.
And we forget that that might be true, but people's natures are stubborn.
And here we have the Prophet Mohammed Salah Selim dialoguing with the Christians of Nigeria.
And many of them sincerely thought that their Christianity is correct. Yes, some of them of course, we know. Some of them saw them, and they realized, but the point here is,
accepting a new religion is not an easy matter.
Even if the religion is true, it's a very, very big deal. And if the Prophet Mohammed solecism,
and people are talking to him and seeing him, these people are not convinced directly and immediately that he is Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, then do you think me and you will be able to do a better job when we give that one, there will always be people who don't see, and that's between them and a lot. That's it. There will always be people who saw monbulk, Mona moon, formula, nurture, and this is going to be the way they are, you cannot do anything about it. And therefore, this demonstrates for us that truth might indeed be clear, and it is clear. But for those who want to see it.
If you're going to cover your own eyes, and you don't want to change your culture and customs and your religion, then even the process of in front of you will not make you change your mind.
And that's something you cannot help. Also we learned from this, that the masjid can be used as a place of
hospitality for non Muslims, the tribe of 34 did they stay
inside the masjid the tent was set up for them inside the masjid. And it can be used as a place of worship by people who are not Muslim, as an occasional thing. Even this is hella. And it is amazing that some people now are so ultra strict about this. They don't even want the non Muslims to come to the masjid as if, I mean, it's bizarre, well lucky that some types of rulings that people have throughout the Sierra, there are non Muslims walking into the masjid throughout the serum. And here we have Christians praying in the holiest Masjid in Medina, and they're facing one of the walls in the corner, the Sahaba want to stop them. The processor says let them pray. And there's no doubt
that of what they're going to say is things that we don't consider valid prayer to Jesus Christ and whatnot. Right? But this shows us that look, okay, it's no doubt you don't make a regular prayer in your niche for the other religions, but not if they come as your guests, their delegates, they come to you, okay, go ahead, offer your prayer, it's not going to harm me, you go ahead and say your prayer in your wall. And then you know, you're done with that. And this shows us the true spirit of Islam when it comes to tolerating other religions that we are very clear in this regard. We don't view the other religions to be valid, but we're not going to force anybody to convert, and we will
let you worship even in our own place of worship. This is what llahi the height of realistic pluralism because to say that everybody is okay. It's actually nonsensical, because each group believes in something the other group believes to be wrong. When Christians say the only way to Jesus Christ, sorry, the only way to God the Father is through Jesus Christ, that He is the door. If somebody says he's not the door, then there is no way to God and it doesn't make sense for Christians to say to other faiths, it's okay what you believe. And that's why most Christians don't say that. We as well say the same thing. There's only one way to Allah subhana wa Tada. And that is
through Islam. Yet, what does that mean?
Do we force other people? No, it's up to them. And so the Christians have their religion we have our religion, the Jews have their religion, let them worship as they want to worship, and we dialogue and that dialogue can be firmed. That dialogue can even reach the level, what is the max level, we invoke a laws curse, but we don't get physical with one another. This is our processing, that the tribe have not drawn. In the end, after all of that they refused, what was done to them nothing. Hello, go back. You have your treaty, you have your religion, no problem, you do what you're doing, and don't interfere with us, we want them to agree with you. And this is the height of Islamic
tolerance. No other civilization in the world was this tolerant up until the advent of quote unquote secularism in after modernity, which rejected religion in the whole place. And that's a whole different tangent here. Otherwise,
of course, Europe was an extremely intolerant place amongst its own people. And we learned from this from the Prophet so seldom that we tolerate other faiths, even if we don't agree with their theology. Also, this shows us as well, that when delegations come, it is the responsibility of the Muslim community to host them, because our process them took charge of feeding them. In fact, the book says here, I mentioned, there were certain houses that were used to house them. And some of them were pagan, some of them were Christian, or Jews, some of them were Muslim, all of them were taken care of by the prophet, so set them. So this shows us that guests are treated with honor, even
if they're non Muslim, you will treat them with courage and dignity, and hospitality. And this shows us that even in Makkah and Medina, and this is a fifth pillar, even in Mecca and Medina, non Muslims can come for a temporary period of time. And this is the majority position, it is the correct position that some people think is how long for them to come forever. No, it is wrong for them to live in Makkah and Medina. But it is not wrong for them to come for a period of time for a greater community. Good. So if a group is coming,
in this case, to be given that we're to, in our cases, very common that some technical issue is needed, when the message of the other process was being built. There were Germans in the message, I remember seeing them myself, this is in the mid 90s. And nobody was told about this because the people panic and whatnot. But you need the technology, you know, use it, especially the the brothers, I remember, you know, the technology from the dead. This was a German firm, and what did you expect other than the technicians to come and check for themselves what is going on, and nobody was told about this, but we could see at some of our German students, students spoke to them, the
technicians. And the point being that nothing is wrong with this, what's wrong with having a non Muslim, come to the city and do what he's supposed to do and then call us you may have to, you may leave now. So here we have the permissibility, even in Makkah and Medina of non Muslims entering for a period of time, for some benefit, and then being asked to leave and other benefits as well. And a shout Allahu taala. In our next class on Wednesday, we'll start with the hedge of obaku, this deal, and then we'll start winding up because after this, the events of the 10th year will zoom by there's only a few incidents, incidents that happened that are in the books of the Sierra. And then that in
within a few months, we will come to the end of this era of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Two quick announcements. The first announcement is that. So next week, we will have a Syrah class. And then the week after that, which is the Thanksgiving, we're going to take a break, the Thanksgiving break, we're going to take a break, I will be going to Houston, so we'll take a break for that. And then resume in December is shallow data. Also tomorrow. There's a lecture in Rhodes College at 6pm.
About the conflict in Algeria for the last 1520 years and what happened with the rise of the Islamic party in 1991. And then the Civil War, a very famous professor is coming from out of state and he's giving a lecture at Rhodes College I was asked to make this announcement. So whoever is interested, I forgot which room it is being held but if any visitors come to me and I look at it after the solder, but if you are interested at 6pm at Rhodes College, anybody who's interested in the Algerian situation in particular one of the experts from Nebraska i think is coming and giving a lecture over there inshallah low dollar. And the other announcements Yes.
Why is it how long because our process Some said, Oh Julia, who the Wanda Solomon juicy little out of
the Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim and he said this on his deathbed, expel the houden. Allah sada from the Jazeera, and most scholars have understood expel those who permanently live, not those who are temporary and the Sahaba allowed the temporary coming of your hood and this is demonstrated by
Who killed her mobile hotspot?
What was he doing? They're
working. He was a hired servant.
Right. And it is understood that they were allowed to live in Makkah and Medina. Okay. Yes.
So this is not implausible, it might be that
some pseudo is revealed twice.
Which means that it is as if Jubilee is saying you already have the answer. And this is the answer.
As for the narration, I don't believe it is authentic, but it is narrated in some books. But I believe it's authentic, but even if it is not fully authentic, but it happened, it doesn't change. It doesn't There are numerous
reports that we have of the same suit or the same is being revealed both in Makkah and Medina.
The practice, the practice of mobile health is not encouraged amongst Muslims, it is not something that we should think about doing. But it is there if the need arises. It is something that is a last resort about aura if the need arises. And historically speaking, it is not something that it's usually used as a threat rather than actually enacted. It's usually used as a threat between two if you like groups or whatnot, that, you know, if one of the groups will says if you really think that you are correct, then call us let us invoke a laws law on the one of the two of us who is lying or whatnot. But this is not something that we play around with.
But it has been invoked. And then of course, in our land, it was famous for the Adani MOBA that took place with the famous Island. What is his name? And muslin Ahmed? What is his name? 1905, or something? The famous album, name, Danish aldila? 1700?
No, not even him. I've forgotten about that very famous album. He made the MOBA, holla, with midazolam and other So
no, no, no. Those later as well.
They did it by kitabi by writing, and it was done and enacted. So I mean, these are things that
there could be Muslim or there could be some good in them, such as in this particular case, but generally speaking, we should shy away from it. It's not and even
historically, it's rarely been done by the Muslim community. Sharla final question, because we're getting late. Yes.
Do you think they were allowed to pray because they were hooked up? Yes. Because we tolerate with the holy cow what we don't tolerate with paganism. And because overall, the God of the Christians and Jews is our God,
even if their conception of God is different, but the God of the Christians and Jews is our God. And anybody who says otherwise you're not reading the Quran? Because the Quran says, What Allah who know what Allah hokum why'd this in the Quran? And I've had Muslims who debate with me that no, the God of the Christians is not our God is like ranallo. What I mean, the Quran is very clear in this, you know, what he now who knows what he does? Yes, they have a different conception. And yes, they believe three is one in oneness three, yes, but very clearly, they believe that their God is the God of Abraham, the God of Abraham, the God of Moses, the Abrahamic God is our God if even if their
conception of him is different than ours, so yes, what was allowed for them was allowed primarily because they were allocated, otherwise the process of never tolerated. How about Thursday of last week, we talked about them, right? He did not allow even one day's delay about destroying a lot. What does that show? We don't tolerate idolatry. But Judaism and Christianity has always been tolerated in the Quran, you know, tolerates the existence of Jews and Christians in the Islamic State, no pressure to no forcing for them at all. They have the right to be who they are. inshallah with this is getting late. We will stop for today and continue next Wednesday. Shalom
