Shaykh Yasir Qadhi now discusses a major event that happened in the Seerah in the year 9 H and that is the Hajj of Abu Bakr As Siddiq RA.
When the tribe of Ta’if accepts Islam in 9H, the Prophet ﷺ makes the decision to send Abu Bakr RA with an official delegation from Madinah to Mecca. He does not perform the Hajj himself. Why so? He informs the reason being the performance of the Tawaf by the jahiliyyah in the naked state. And that is indeed a no brainer that the blessed Prophet ﷺ is not going to do Hajj when the mushriks were acting in this way.
Also we receive immense clarification on the topic of Tawaf being done in a naked state by the Jahiliyyah. Then Allah explicitly elaborates on this topic of Fahisha in the Qur’an and our doubts are put to rest.
The moment Abu Bakr RA left for Madinah, Allah revealed the first 3 pages of Surah Tawbah which were directed at the pagans of Arabia.
Another point of interest is when the Prophet ﷺ chose Ali ibn Abi Talib to take these verses and announce them to the people during Hajj along with the congregation that had left for Mecca. 300 people were chosen to go along with 25 sacrificial animals.
What are these verses ofSurah Tawbah? The Shaykh explains the meanings of the verses revealed in this time and gives a detailed Tafseer. It is definitely worth a listen.
‘The verse of the sword’ or the 5th verse of Surah Tawbah that was revealed became a huge point of misinterpretation and controversy. What was the issue? Shaykh Yasir answers.
Abu Bakr RA performed the Hajj along with Ali RA and they first recite Surah Tawbah. Then they make the following announcements:
- No one shall enter Jannah other than a Muslim.
- No one shall perform Tawaf naked.
- No mushrik shall ever perform Tawaf ever again.
Was Ihram present before Islam? It is reported that the Prophet ﷺ explicitly commanded the Muslims to wear Ihram and this implies that Ihram is that which the Prophet ﷺ himself came with.

Bismillah R Rahman Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Marina Marburg. So today's lesson will actually be the final lesson for our calendar year. And inshallah we will resume from 2015 Sharla January, and we will resume with the end. So we're basically winding up inshallah maybe maybe even two or three more lessons after this one. And then
then we have to decide what to do next after that, so how to love so. But today we will do the very final incidents in the ninth and 10th years that we haven't discussed now realize that what we have discussed for the last few weeks is primarily delegations and family incidents. And we kind of had to break our chronology and you understood why. So the delegations, as we said, occurred from the seventh year, all the way to the 10th year, and it would really just, it's better just to mix them all together. And of course, the most significant delegations were the tribal thief accepting Islam in the ninth year of the hedgerow the Christians have drawn in the ninth year, and perhaps the most
melodramatic delegation was out of maceda al Khattab some of these delegations to cure in the 10th took place in the 10th year as well. But we discussed pretty much all of them together. So we had to kind of jump forward now we have to go back chronologically and talk about the next big incident that occurred in the ninth year of the hedgerow and that is the hedge abubaker as the as the hedge of Abu Bakar us death now, remind me When did maca when was the conquest of Makkah, everybody should know the conquest of Makkah, when
Ramadan of the eighth year of the Hydra, so in the eighth year of the hedgerow could the process of high performing hajj when the Muslims are performing hajj in the eighth year?
Why is there confusion? Yes, they could have they could have because they conquered Mecca in Ramadan, yet there was no basically concerted effort to perform Hajj by the Muslims in the eighth year of the hedgerow. Why can anybody think of a reason why
if we say to visit with delegations then we are saying that a wajib or a fourth has been delayed because of delegations
they didn't go for the purpose of hedging Ramadan but then hedges ended hedger
you could have come again in three months.
They wanted the book when
name was when
right after that eighth year so that's so that's show what her name is a show on eighth year.
Yeah, that's show what all over the show one.
So so they could have come back for how do they wanted to? Why didn't they
still fresh with this the cuts?
What does that got to do? So security gone?
Exactly. mcha is not yet safe. Why is MCE? not yet fully safe?
Natural safe to walk.
In other words, other than Hey, john, even Hejaz? How can we forget thought if
thought if is literally an hour's drive away? It's literally the next neighboring city. And it has a huge population that is very hostile, right? So the reason why there was no concerted hedges because it's still not feasible. You're not gonna delay a watch or a followed because of delegation, because it's not feasible because of the security threats. And therefore in the eighth year of the hedger, there was no
special hedge delegation coming from Medina from the process of them. Rather, there were some Muslims who performed Hajj so for the first time some Muslims publicly performed hedge this had not happened since the beginning of the day. I never now though, because maca is under Islamic control. So we had some Muslims perform hajj and the books of Sierra mentioned that our Prophet says that I'm placed one of the bundle of the chumps which is one of the tribes was one of their members. His name is I tap in a seed. I tap him in a seed, he I placed him as a governor of Mecca. So he's a local MK McCauley, he converts at the conquest of Makkah, so he's one of the late converts.
Now why didn't he appoint one of the the elite of the aurash? The old converts? Why didn't he appoint one of them to be the governor of Makkah? I went over this guy's strict question, but you should know it. Why didn't he appoint? Omar earthman these are far more senior than I tagged him in a seed as the governor of Makkah.
What about that he not hate me, but how about the others?
No, you guys are forgetting. Why did they all go back?
They have to go back.
Not just the unsolved, the muhajir rune are also obliged to go back, because one of the points of the higit up that because of which they were honored, is that the mohajir cannot go back to where he came from, or else his injury is nullified.
So none of them who had your own returned to Makkah, after the conquest, guys, I went over this. I went over this, none of them who had your own, were able to go back to Makkah, including the Prophet system. Because this is only for special for the actual Mahajan. As for us in our times, if somebody does hit you off from a dangerous land for the sake of Allah, then that dangerous land becomes safe again. And he's able to return he's able allowed to return. But that group of Mahajan, they had to make a condition that helaas they have given up everything. And so there was no permission for them Mohajer that real Mahajan to go back to Makkah clear, that would there was no permission given to
them. They had literally given up everything. So they had to then fulfill their vow. So therefore, who was allowed to remain in Makkah, those who never left Mecca, the converts of Makkah, so I tab, even a seed was the governor. And it is said that and the books of history don't really mention too much because none of the elite of the Sahaba are involved the process have not evolved, but for the first time some small group of Muslims led by the governor of Makati. He performed Hajj in the eighth year of the hedgerow. As for the process and the Sahaba in Medina, they did not perform Hajj in the eighth year of the hedgerow. So in the ninth year of the hedgerow, what happens to book takes
place that is taken care of. We're gonna come to the issue of Nigerian as well later on in sharlyn. The drawn end of ninth beginning of 10th year is also taken care of. And the main thing in the ninth year is the thief accepts Islam. and sell thief is the big threat to Mecca. The thief is right next door. We talked about the delegation of thieves didn't we? They didn't want to pray. They didn't want they want to drink alcohol, they want to remember that time. Okay? Eventually they have to do all of that. So se accepts Islam. So now in the ninth year of the hijra, the prophet system decides to send Abu Bakar also deal with an official delegation from Medina. Okay, and he himself does not
He does not perform the Hajj and he does not perform the Hajj because he explicitly says to Abu Bakar unto others, why that he says that Verily, the mushy record perform the off naked around the Kaaba, and I do not wish to perform the Hajj until that is eliminated. So he gave the ultimate reason and that is that it is not befitting for the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to participate in the Hajj, where you have mushy raccoon acting in this vulgar and lewd manner. Now, I we have referenced this issue a number of times, very briefly, it is just a footnote here. You need to understand this concept of doing hygiene without you're doing the walk without your clothes. It's
referenced in the Koran as we know, but I didn't really talk about it. I'll just need to talk about that. So we understand why they did that that Allah mentions is sort of mighty the verse 28 alumni chooses Jeremiah, verse 28. And by the way, sort of my ADA is the verse that mentions very explicitly right before verse 28. Allah mentions how, how wa and Adam were seduced by
beliefs and a police caused them to get rid of their clothes. And Allah then says that all children have add them let not shape on seduce you to take off your clothes. Then Allah says that we have sent down clothes from the heavens. But Ansel not a complete boss and you worry so article, what Isha we have sent down clothes from above, we have sent down clothes, meaning the clothes are not natural. They're not we're the only animal creation were the only creation of Allah in this world, that were something of above and beyond what our mothers give birth to us in the only creation in this in this physical world that we live in. And so Allah saying, Where did this come from? I sent
it down to you and Zen alikum lieberson so the the concept of clothes is quite literally heavenly.
Divine. Then the next verse, Allah says so look at the context all about clothes all about Adam and helwa having been exposed and whatnot then Allah says what either fire lufa heisha 10 when the Quran do something that is Fantasia and Fantasia is any type of evil that is of a sexual nature, generally speaking fire shows a lewd or a vulgar sin and this is different than volume, because volume is a sin of transgression. Right and one is other so far heisha is a sin of a perverse if you like nature, so Allah says one day do a Fantasia. What is that for her? She's not in the Quran, it's in the theater and see literature when they do a Fantasia they say as an excuse to things which
will allow Amara nebia number one, our forefathers did the same factor show number two, Allah commanded us to do this FACA then Allah azza wa jal negates and he says, In the La Jolla, Monroeville fascia tell them or messenger of Allah that Allah does not command that which is fascia. So what is this fascia? The Sahaba tambien, they interpreted this verse they said, the font ratio was to perform pull off without your clothes. This is the reference and the context clearly indicates this. Because we all mentioned now, all of the page and a half before this verse is about clothes and whatnot. Then Allah mentions one day do a factory shop. What is this factory shop, they
will do tawaf without their clothes. What was their justification? Why would they possibly the holiest of holy places? Why would you stop for a loved one to do something so vulgar. By the way? Also another point here, when they mentioned to excuses, Allah azza wa jal let go the first one because it was factual.
Not because it was a valid evidence, but because it was true. their forefathers did it. So a lot of xojo responded to the second allegation. And let go the first one because the first one was technically true, but it's not a legitimate excuse. So what if your forefathers did it? But it was a legit, it wasn't sorry, it was a valid, historical thing to say. But the second thing they said, Allah told us to do this. Then Allah immediately said, No, Allah never commands, vulgarity, and fascia. So what is their justification? Even cathedra? And others? They mentioned two justifications? Why would you want to take your clothes off in front of the holiest of holy places,
and doodle off wearing nothing? The holder has a labella they have two excuses. The first of them I found very interesting that they said that, they said that.
Why should we do tawaf? Sorry, we should do tawaf, the same way that our mothers gave birth to us.
Meaning we should return to our original state that Allah created us in?
Or is the fancy term, our natural, basically, nothing. Now, I found this intriguing, because this is exactly the same excuse that we find the modern practitioners have the same jolly practice. Right? Basically, if you will, I mean, there's no point there's no harm in saying this as well. There's this movement now the new just movement and whatnot. And this is the exact same logic
that God created us this way. Our mothers gave birth to us this way. Why should we pervert nature? Right? And if you somehow that is exactly the same excuse of the jolly Arabs, that our mothers gave birth to us this way. So when we come in front of Allah, we should be like, Allah created us in the beginning. And that is how natural without any, without anything, and so this is the same, the same mentality. And the point is, Allah says in the Quran, no, I sat down close to you. I sat down closer to the second excuse that they have, is that they, they would say, How can we do tawaf in the very same clothes that we have disobeyed a lot in? Isn't it shameful, that in these garments, we have
disobeyed a law? So how can we use the same garments we have committed sins in so we have to get rid of the garments and then be naked? Right? And this really shows you were lucky how easy it is to find any logic for anything.
Any logic for anything? It is possible. And this is very true. I mean, just yesterday, a report was released by our own country, which we see what they have done to innocent people, right now, as we speak. You know, more than half the country is supportive of these tactics. And they think this is completely so the point is this type of without any, without any divine guidance, without any Sharia. Anybody can justify anything.
This whole and that's my tangent here. But somehow the whole notion of our intellects being all powerful and guiding and
Not your intellect can justify anything at once you want to be naked doing pull off, you will find reasons to do so you want to torture innocent people you will find whatever it is you will find your justifications. That's why you need a shediac from Allah to tell you right from wrong, because otherwise left to our own whims and devices, anybody can justify anything that he or she wants to justify. And here we have people justifying doing the law, which is the greatest of deeds around the greatest of houses, and they believe this house to be sacred, like we as well. But somehow, in their perversion, they said, Let us be natural, the way Allah created us, and how can we go off with the
clothes that Allah azzawajal we send in. And so
the books of history mentioned that. And by the way, another point, not everybody did the wolf naked, this was something Believe it or not, that was a sign of piety. So like, the more righteous or it's a sign of piety. So it's not as if every time 24 seven people are doing naked puja here, but rather, it may be one out of every 100. And I'm just estimating their own Gnosticism. But I'm saying it was something that was a sign of extra piety, that I will show my piety in front of everybody, by showing you my to do it in front of everybody. So it's not as if everybody did it. But it was something that was not uncommon, and especially during the Hajj season, because of the extra
quantity, that the quantity would be increased of this nature. And also it is said that now the people of Mecca By the way, I need to make this point here, they did not follow this practice, because they viewed themselves as being elitist. They literally thought they were elite, they thought these rules don't apply to us. Because we are people of the atom, we are people of the holy place. So this was a custom of the non core ashis. And that is why in hajj, it also increased because that's when the non core issues are coming. And there were ways out of this, by the way.
So even those who wanted to do it, there are ways out of it, what are some of the ways out of it. So they would either purchase brand new clothes,
so that then the excuse that we having sinned in these clothes does not work does not work, or they would get a quarter sheet to land one of his garments, because for some reason, if the clothes are being used in Makkah, so then they are also holy. So they don't it doesn't apply to them. And so, I mean, this is my ridiculous theory, I think this notion of going around the cabin naked unless you purchase from Makkah, must have been invented by some Moroccan merchant or, or closed seller. You know, it's like, to me, one of my weird theories, I mean, Allah Allah, but who else would invent it? Some perverse some pervert stuff with a lot, right? He wants to see people without clothes, and he's
a seller of clothes, he comes up with these notions, and it becomes popular, and eventually, who benefits financially and even who has suffered a lot from the perversion side is the people of Makkah, they get to sell, they don't have to take their clothes off. Everybody's doing it. So it's a win win for those guys. Right? A lot of that's not in the books of Sierra don't you don't have to write that down? Oh, no takers. This is just
it is Yes, that is true. We are stuck for a lot. And the books of Sierra and the books of Tafseer mentioned that when they will do this. Even the women that Hoda Jose Bella, sometimes we do this Can you imagine will like the vulgarity, even the women will do this. But for the women there was a little bit of license to wear, what we would call maybe just a garment covering just the the middle portion, just a little bit of that any something like this, okay, so they would cover a small portion of their body and the rest of it they would cover with their hands, they would cover with their hands, and they would versified a poem in front of everybody that Aloma yep do by Aldo who
akula who were my abdomen, men who fella or Hitler who that today, all of my body or some of it is now apparent to everybody. But whatever is apparent, I don't allow anybody to stare at me. So, allegedly when she says this, so nobody can look at her. I don't know how that will be enforced. But that is what the point would be that nobody should be able to look at her. And also it is said in the books of Sierra that it was more common for women to do this in the middle of the night meaning that not in the daytime that they would do this. And of course, there was no lighting back at that time. So the point being that this was the custom that existed, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
explicitly said I do not want to be doing Hajj with that type of, you know, environment. Now, it is very interesting to note over here that the Prophet says Adam made a firm stand, he's not going to go for Hajj because of this. And this is definitely the be fitting and appropriate thing for our solar system to do. But he sends a boubakeur and 300 people
for the first 53 years of his life, without a doubt this must have been taking place in Makkah. Now, obviously, the books of Sierra don't mention anything because they shouldn't I mean, it's clear this is happening. But so what does the show and the reason I mentioned this Now, of course, I mean, suffer alone, this is happening, I process them obviously is lowering his gaze, there's no question about that. But the point here that I want to stress that merely being in an environment of a fracture
is not in and of itself, how long for you that you have to leave the country or go somewhere else? Because our process him did not leave Makkah, even though women are doing a lot of this in this nature. And it is clear that it's public here and I say this because we do have a lot of especially our young men, they go through these phases of just like you know, everything becomes hot I'm living in the West becomes how long? Because why? Because there's fashion everywhere. Well, firstly, go to the east and you'll see the same amount if not the worst fashion, right? You guys are living in some deluded land if you think that that's an especially with the internet and television and whatnot.
Yeah, Neela hotel, Casa Bella, there is no utopia anywhere anymore. The same fashion over there. And it may be you might not see the billboard maybe. But do you think that there's anything less on the internet, on television on DVDs and whatnot? Is that just as bad, if not worse, because of we're aware and who those people are. But secondly, this incident clearly shows us that our processing for 53 years when he is the minority, he is the oppressed with the courage there. What are you going to do, you lower your gaze, you fight your own battle, just because it's happening outside doesn't mean your presence there is how long and this is especially true when there is no place to go. Such as I
was saying our times, there is no place for us to, to go to and as long as we protect ourselves to the greatest extent possible for too long, we still talk to them inshallah, to Allah there is no sin on us to be in that public environment, as long as we battle with our own gaze. So our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent aboubaker, to do what to lay the foundations for the final year of his life. That would be the final hija to adapt that that hedge it should be a perfect hedge. So he sent Abu Bakar now there are no idols in Mecca that was eight years gone. But there are still going to be what pagans coming from all over Arabia. And they're going to have their weird and bizarre
customs. So he sends a workers to do to make sure that there are not going to be these rituals anymore, and that they're not going to be any pagans anymore. From now on MCC is going to be a an Islamic site. There's not going to be any idol worshippers coming over there. And as soon as Abu Bakar radi Allahu anhu left the city of Medina, within a few hours, Allah subhana wa tada revealed sudut October, or I would actually say the first three pages are sort of that over two and a half pages of pseudo October. And these verses are directed to the pagans of Arabia. And what is the wisdom? Why did Allah subhanho wa Taala delay this Allah knows best, but maybe it was because of
exactly what happened and that is that when somebody said to the to the process of them, why don't you send these verses to Abu Bakr so they're so he said, No one shall convey these verses on my behalf other than somebody from my own household. And he chose I leave that'd be positive, who was not a part of the initial Hajaj. He was told to stay. There was a group of 300 I forgot to mention 300 were chosen, along with 25 sacrificial animals so 25 bandanas, Jani, Heidi 25, Heidi, the process of them sent and 300 Muslims, and at the head was Abu Bakar. Alia was not told to be in that group. So at least staying in Medina, within a few hours, literally, because Abu Bakar has not yet
reached the Khalifa. And that's literally going to take a few hours, so Toba comes down. So the Prophet system tells
him to go catch up to Abu Bakar. So do take these verses, and then announce them to the people in the hedge time. So we need to quickly go over what are these verses of October so that October, and of course pseudo Toba was one of the very very final sutras revealed
and some say it is the final large sudo to be revealed. Others say the finalists within Maya so Maya and Toba are the final suitors to be revealed and a toe but of course we all know even our young children know that the one thing about Sugata Toba is what sets it apart. No bas mela no Bismillah Ar Rahman Rahim and there are a number of opinions. Two of them are the most famous stone ones why they doesn't have the best mother. The first
of them is narrated from Abu Dhabi blahdy blahdy blah one, and he was asked why doesn't suit adobo have Bismillah R Rahman Rahim. And he went now his response. It makes sense now for today's lecture though. He says Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim is what you write at the beginning of a contract of protection of Rama, right that we're going to now have a treaty or truce, and suta Toba is about Bara, which is to cut off the ties to disassociate. And so you're not going to start the sutra of dissociation by saying In the name of Allah Rahman r Rahim.
Because Allah is saying in the surah, and the very first or second verse in the LA Huberty, or min and mushy kena, Allah has nothing to do very. In English, we say I've washed my hands off of anybody means have nothing to do. So it's not the fitting that such a sort of begins with a Rahmani Raheem.
This is I live in a bit odd if statement. And then there's a hadith and Timothy, which is the second reason given, which is really confusing for the beginning students of knowledge and we don't have time to get into the details, but I'll just tell you, and then maybe at a later time, we can go into some of those details with my name and I found was asked by his student, why didn't you put the best smeller at the beginning of pseudo tober and also why did you combine and fall and tober Even though unfound is early MCC and Toba is late sorry, early Medina and Toba is late Medina, there is no connection in data of chronology that unfound is better.
And five is better. And Toba is post a book Toba is the book and post the book, right? Because remember, went over all of the book and most of that order. Remember, this is all happening now. And then the beginning portion of Toba is revealed
in the end of the ninth year, so sudo Toba is all ninth year. And so that and then file is all first and second year. So one of his students has Why would you combine and father and Toba even though their dates are so far apart, and then why didn't you put Bismillah. And so earthman had been our fan says, according to the heady tinted MIDI, that the content of the two was similar. They're both qatal and jihad, which is very true. And doba was revealed very late. And we didn't know whether it was a separate suitor or not. So we just put it within file. And because we didn't know if it's a separate surah we didn't write best meta.
So this is another reason given now this raises a whole can of worms, but it's not related to C at all. That's a normal question. Unfortunately, I don't have time to talk about that. But it is in my book and other references you can find the point being let us now go over the very first verses of Toba Bara terminal ah what a suti he illan Latina I had too many mushrikeen Bara terminal la hora suli. This is a declaration of dissociation.
It's a very powerful beginning. It's a very powerful beginning barato, Mina la he would assume that this is a declaration of cutting off all ties, dissociation, there is no powerful word in English, like butter and Arabic, that literally cutting off all ties from Allah and His Messenger, either letting our human or machine to all those who we have some treaties with from the pagans. So there were treaties in the sixth or seventh or eighth year, all of these treaties. Now this is the declaration that all of those treaties are going to be made null and void. Now anytime you have a treaty with somebody, before you break it off, you have to tell them, you cannot surprise break it
off. It's against Islam. It's against etiquette, you have a contract or even in our modern day when your employer fires you or whatever, there is a clause there isn't there. Right that there has to be? What is it for most of you three months, two months? What I don't know.
Okay, let's not open this door.
Any second is like that. But most employers have a clause right? That if the termination is from their side, they'll give you one month or something. Notice, right?
Okay, is this old school? 90, okay. So some of the some of the guys are 90 days, some of you are zero. Okay.
Okay, so the union guys have 90 days and the non zero.
Okay, the point being, the point being, that, generally speaking, when you allow the contract, it is good to have this clause. And this is the way that even our shady operates that if you have a treaty with an enemy nation or something, you cannot just break the treaty as you attack them. That's completely and Islamic. It is haram. Rather, if you want to break off the treaty, you have to tell them look, we have one month left and Hamas is gone. This is like the
end of treaty associate this is what is happening now. This is what Allah is revealing this pseudo for that any treaty. We have we
We're now going to break it off. And Allah then gives the conditions and the and the details of that, that Allah subhana wa tada says faasil fulfill all the alphabet asuran. So go ahead and wander around for four months, do what you want for four months. So all treaties are going to come to an end. In four months, you have four months, and you are completely safe and free for four months, not just in your lands because the treaties were specific to the bundle of this the bundle that now Allah is saying, I am making the treaty broader in terms of geography. for four months, you are free to go anywhere, anywhere and do whatever you want. Pack your stuff, you know, take care of business,
visit family, whatever you need to do, you have four months to do that. And Ally's origin is not giving this to you because he is weak. Why don't want to complain mortgages in law. This is not because the law is incapacity to know this is a generous gift to you and Allah azza wa jal will humiliate de pagans, what other than nominal law what I saw the heel and nasty Yeoman Hajin Akbar, and this shall be a declaration of than this is a declaration from Allah and His messenger to all of mankind, on the day of the big hedge, Elijah Akbar. And this is the day of sacrifice, which is the day after all of this is a Hajin Akbar, this is the day after out of that Allah and His Messenger
have cut off all relationship from the machine from the pagans, there is no more relationship with the pagans. So if you repent, it is good for you. And if you turn away, then know that you are not going to defeat Allah, and that give glad tidings to those who reject that they shall have a severe punishment. Except there's an exception here, except meaning the four months, those whom you have a specific treaty with the pagans with the time clause. Now the four months is those you don't have a time clause with, if you have a specific treaty with the pagans, and the tribe, and they have not broken their promise at all. Then in that case, Allah says, a team will lay him at home alone with
the team go ahead and fulfill their contract or treaty, until you put that time clause in goes away. And that is because there were some small tribes, the process of actually put a time clause for one year for this many months, you put a time clause. So we are a fair nation and people. And if the time clause was at the beginning of the treaty, and they didn't break anything of the treaty, then you don't have the right to break the treaty, you understand the difference between an unconditional treaty and a conditional treaty. So Allah puts the exception here, the conditional treaty that had a time clause, and they were good to you and they honored the treaty, then how about them, then for a
team in a Mr. DeMille, I'm with the team, go ahead and fulfill their Treaty until their time clause finishes. So be fair to those who are fair to you. Then the fifth verse comes in a half to go into a little bit of detail because this is the most misinterpreted verse from islamophobes. This is the verse that is always used by Fox News and by Spencer and Pamela Geller and all of these people. This is that verse, it is called the verse of the sword to a safe, the verse of the sword. And you have to understand this verse in the context of the ninth year of the Hydra in the conquest, after the conquest of Makkah, paganism has been eliminated. All of this needs to be understood that Allah
says, when the sacred months finish now, what are the sacred months, some scholars said the sacred must, or the famous sacred must have the hijiri calendar, others said, a law called the four months in verse number two, he called them the sacred months, because those are the four months you cannot fight for this particular year.
Meaning for this year, those four months have become sacred, because you cannot fight. So basically, when those four months finish, you understand for yourself or actually, some of them I said, I shall recover means the classical showroom, but a lot of the stronger opinion appears to be the showroom in this verse are the four months a lot just talked about in the previous verse. So when the sacred months those four months finish, then what? Then you have an open license to attack and kill and
surprise them and whatever, take them prisoner, do whatever needs to be done.
No, no. See, here's the point here. Here's the point. This verse was revealed for the atom and for the Arabian Peninsula,
that there is not going to be paganism, idol worship, in that sacred land anymore. You cannot worship an idol in
the lands of the harem.
And so they were given four months, you have two options. Get rid of your paganism and accept Islam. And that's exactly what Allah says, in this very verse, that that is the verse of the sword that Allah says. But if they repent, and they start praying and giving zeca, then they are your brother and allow them to be what they want to be follow sebelum for a while you can fit in. So in the same verse of the sword, after they've been told, You have four months, you can either Pack your bags and get out or face war. And that is because it is not allowed in our Islamic Sharia, for idol for idolatry to be practiced in the Arabian Peninsula. You cannot have idolatry practiced openly in the
Arabian Peninsula, and that's something that is pretty much agreed upon. Now, scholars have differed outside of the Arabian Peninsula, and historically speaking, pretty much every single
Muslim ruler from the oma years and there are buses and the Ottomans and the moguls of India. They all tolerated paganism outside of the Arabian Peninsula. So fear is one thing reality is another that realistic or historically speaking, historically speaking, non now of course by unanimous consensus, Jews and Christians are allowed to live in an Islamic State there's no there's never a controversy over this that if they pay the jizya they can live in under the Islamic rule. The if the love came over non Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians, restaurants were added by honorable hip hop, because Omar added Zoroastrians. hapa was the first commander to conquer non pagans and non
Christians and Jews eat his restaurants when he conquered Persia. There was the restaurants there. So the Sahaba different What do we do now? And I'm going to blow kebab said, um, you know whom Mohammed Al Kitab treat them like you treat Allah Kitab except that you cannot marry their women and their meat is not hella meaning they paid the Jews. Yeah, and they are protected.
Clear. Now, based on this, I'm going into a tangent by the way this is not Sierra, but I know all of you want to know this. This is something that we should know. Based on this.
All of the mother have agreed that your hood nosara and my juice are allowed to live in doubted Islam. If they pages you clear, there's no afterlife, and this at all, that they can practice their faith have their churches and synagogues and fire temples. As long as they pay jizya they are protected by the state. Of course, there are conditions they cannot proselytize. Let's be very, um, we're not painting that society to be a post liberal post modernist post humanistic secular said, No, it's very clear. You're allowed to be Christian, Jew or Zoroastrian, but you cannot convert other people. You want your children in your families go ahead. But you cannot convert other people
to your faith that are not a part of your faith. That's very clear in Islamic textbooks. But the point being that if Taylor came What if you're not Christian, George Zoroastrian.
This is where the men that have differed, some of that have said, No Tough luck. You only allow these and others said No, it's okay. What Omar said of the Medusa applies to every other religion. You understand this point? Okay. And I said fear is one thing. And history is another. No matter what the FOCA has said, historically, the whole alpha basically allowed every single religious group to be who they are, as long as they didn't proselytize, and they didn't fight and be a nuisance. And the classic example of this, I mentioned this two months ago, when the Z, the crisis happened, the Z these are the classic example, that the CDs have existed under the herbicides and under the Obama
years and under the mamluks. And they are neither Christian or Jew nor Zoroastrian nor Muslim. They are heretical or semi heretical group. They have their own bizarre their their beliefs go back to the ancient beliefs of Iraq, where they were, they have some rather bizarre things. And they are mistakenly called satan worshippers, even though that's not technically true, but they have their bizarre beliefs. The point is, they were tolerated. And other I mean, the mortals is another example, right, that the morals were the largest empire in India, and they had no problem with the Hindus being there. And they orang zabe what is considered to be a fanatic simply because he tried
to institute jizya. But he never ever said that the Hindus have to convert or get expelled, right, just because he wanted to institute the jizya. And he said and he's basically resurrecting almost opinion that we're going to take jizya from the point being that this verse cannot be taken as a carte blanche
On all non Muslims, and one simple historical fact that not a single person lost his or her life because of this verse, this verse is a threat. You have four months or else, you're gone.
It's a threat. And it was meant to be a threat that scared the people. And that is why paganism disappeared from Arabia, which was exactly what Islam wanted.
So, to take this verse, kill the pagans, wherever you find them, that's what they always do. Or they say, kill the infidels wherever you find them. And to ignore the entire context that in the same verse, we're actually in the next verse, verse number six, Allah is saying that if any mushrik seeks your protection, then grant him protection.
Until you explain to him Islam, and take him to a safe place. Then, after that he is on his own, you're on your own. So verse number six clearly says, anybody wants protection, give him protection, explain to him, Islam, accompany him to the borders, get rid of him, and then you go your way, he goes his way, not one person was actually killed, or executed as a result of this verse. It was meant to threaten the pagans, either accept and stay where you are, or Pack your bags, get rid of your businesses, sell your stuff, and go live elsewhere. And that's exactly what happened.
paganism is wiped out of Arabia. And that was the goal of the Prophet system and of Islam. And we will not not sugarcoat this at all. We do not want idolatry to be taking place in the Arabian Peninsula. idolatry was not wiped out from the rest of the world, even from the rest of the Muslim lands. And we've given examples of this, but it was wiped out in Arabia. Now, another point here. So another major controversy historically,
is the issue of ideas that have you thought of being chosen
convey this message, conveyed this message to the pagans, to the pagans of the Hajj of the ninth year. So ninth year of the Hajj of the hijra, is the only year ever in the history of humanity, where Muslims and pagans performed both off and Hajj simultaneously.
Never before were
as official delegation of Muslims, and the official delegations of the pagans that have come from other lands, performing hype simultaneously. This was the one and only time in the ninth year of the hedgerow that you had pagans that had not accepted Islam, the periphery regions, other regions, right north, south, east west, not everybody is a Muslim. So Adi Vitaly is sent to announce to all those pagans go back to your people and tell them either ship up or ship out, you got four months,
four months, if you don't, we will attack you.
And that was the clear point. Now, the question, of course is, why was it chosen I even had been taught him he was given suited to Toba or I should say the first two pages pseudo Toba. And he quickly gallops up to the leafa, which is as you know, the main part of Medina. abubaker is just that. He sees Ali and Ali was given the personal capital of the Prophet system. And this was a sign that the rulers would always do, they would give a personal ring or a personal staff or a personal camera to read representative of the ruler. And when Abu Bakar saw the writing on the Campbell of the process, and immediately he asked him, Are you being sent to be a commander over me?
Or am I still going to be the commander and your Lieutenant are second command basically? And it says no, you are still the commander, the process of didn't send me to take over from you. You're still the commander but I've been come to send or to to recite to that October. Now, of course, you understand this is going to cause a huge tension between which groups in which groups obviously, okay.
So obviously, the Shia interpret this, and they say, this is explicit that Ali should have been the halifa. I mean, out of all of the evidences. So this is on the top two or three that they say, right, of course, the top one, of course is the ideal home incident, which we'll come to or we'll talk about maybe later on. That's the number one always the home always. And then of the top two or three. They say this incident here, that in hajj, Abu Bakr Siddiq, when the prophet SAW Selim had to be represented, he clearly said, No one shall represent me other than my family member. And he chose Olli and he sent him to announce to the
pagans the suta October. Now,
this is actually, as is typically the case very easy for us to understand in the proper way, we have our interpretation, they have their interpretation about how we and other historians and will fasudil mentioned that it was the custom of pre Islam that we can all understand that when the chieftain or the ruler or the leader wants to make a treaty or break a treaty, you have to send somebody from his family to enact that treaty on his behalf. And because he's dealing with the jolly Arabs, he wants to make sure there's no excuse that somebody can say, oh, we're not quitting because these are not Muslims. Now. He's dealing with pagans, and they're still steeped in the culture of
Jay Z, where lineage is everything, and family is everything. And so he wanted to provide no excuse for them. And he sends Allium nebby, Pauline, to break the treaty that he himself had enacted, you know, the general treaties that don't have the clause. Right. So who's going to break it, somebody from his own family will say you have four months left, so that there's no excuse left, that Oh, we're not going to acceptable, but we have to take this directly from the Profit System himself. And the simplest
correct understanding for us is that a walker and Ollie are both in the same convoy of Hajj. Ali literally says to Abu Bakar, no, you are still the Amir? And I am the more I am the one under you.
So the interpretation of the shift for our perspective is simply incorrect. To say that early, this indicates that it is more rightful of the Halawa in this incident, you have to have the greatest of the Sahaba Abubakar and Allie together, and the process that sends the both of them. But it is not sent as the Amir Ali is sent for a task. And that task is to break the treaty. And abubaker is the overall Amir. And for us, this clearly demonstrates because again, Hamdulillah, we love Ali the way he should be loved. And we are more rightful to be Ali's partisans, I have said this in my cover the lecture, we are the true Shia to Ali, meaning we are the ones who support him, and believe in him
the way that it is worthy to be believed in. And so we have no problems giving every blessing that is given to the loved one. And this is a great blessing and a great honor. And we have no stinginess and saying he is indeed the Allan beta and he represents the process of them and what not, but this doesn't mean that you should have been the halifa over the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So
this was the only hedge we set in Islamic history that was performed by both Muslims and some remnants of the the pagans. And it was also the only hedge that the rites of Hajj were still performed according to the old ways. In other words, the process of did not show the the the correct way of hedge. So the hedge of the machine was slightly different in terms of order and whatnot. So worker is doing it in the old way, because that's what is accustomed to, by the way, how many hedge did the process do?
How about before the hedge row?
How about before the heroine is living in Mecca?
Was hedge an institution
not hedge as we know it.
They had their own hedge. They had their own hedge. Correct. And much of that hedge was taken from Ibrahim alayhis salam going out of you know go doing tawaf doing sorry, they had that. Right. So did the process of do those or not.
So the books of Sierra don't mention, but it is understood he must have done Hajj when he was in Makkah, after the prophet who will not only who's young before Prophet, but obviously he would have done those days. But after the 40th his 40th year, would he have done Hajj. The books are zero dimension, but it's understood, like the average Macau person living in Mecca to this day. I mean, we're lucky if you live in Macau and you don't do Hajj honestly, you have a problem. And if you live in Mecca, and you don't go for the Hajj, I mean, many of my friends who live in Mecca, they literally just on the day of alpha take their car and drive to alpha, because it's 20 minutes away,
okay, and then they drive back home and whatnot. That's all you got to do. You don't have to if you do throw off you would not so for the McAfee not to do hedge and alpha is 10 minutes away, just take the bus or whatever and then come back to your home and whatnot. So how could the process of not have done hedge? You know? Yes, after being a profit, why would you not do much
but there's nothing wrong with the hedge of those times. of out of fat. tawaf sorry
There's nothing wrong with that. So
so that is a time when he is being persecuted, whereas now he is in charge and he can enforce law.
Whereas back then he cannot enforce law. Right.
So that was my point. What did he leave Makkah for 13 years? No, so clearly it is happening.
Right, let's finish this inshallah. And then because we're starting to q&a right now, so, so abubaker, so the performance the hedge idea of the Allahu anhu. And along with a doubleheader is also sent the two of them announced throughout Mena, they announced four major announcements they recite sudo to Toba, the first two pages, so that everybody knows you got four months, then they have four major announcements to make. Number one,
no one shall enter gender other than a Muslim or a movement, or in another version, the coffee shall not enter agenda. Number two, no one shall perform throw off naked.
Number three, no mushrik shall ever perform fall off. Again, this is the final year. And number four, any contract that exists with the pagans with any tribe shall have four months after this, there is no treaty or contract with any tribe. Unless there's a special clause for a time clause. We talked about that. Right. So these are the four major
announcements and hedge of Abu Bakar. Now, the first point is very interesting. Why mentioned
that no one shall enter agenda except a Muslim, no coffee shall enter agenda. So this is now perhaps the final word that is being given to groups of people that might decide to leave Arabia forever.
Because they've heard the success of Islam, they know they have either two options, convert or leave. It's never convert or die, by the way, convert or leave Arabia. So they're being told the most important thing that they need to realize there is no way to gender other than Islam. And honestly, for me, this is a very important point for our modern times, because this principle of Islam is being watered down, and many of our youth find it difficult to swallow. And I have a more extensive lecture online. salvific exclusivity in Islam, I have an academic was an academic paper, you can find it online. But to me the fact that the processor mentions this as the first
announcement, in the final hedge that the pig is whatever attend, it really demonstrates I mean, are onic wise and even logic wise, it's common sense. If you believe in a religion, it had better be a religion that saves you from a loss, anger and punishment, if other religions also save you than why believe in this one religion. The purpose of religion is to be guided to gender, the purpose of religion is the pleasure of Allah. If you're gonna say, oh, many other religions do that and guide you to the pleasure of Allah, then why revealed another religion? Why even follow one religion, just choose the other one that you think is also valid. Religion by its nature, logically should be
exclusive. In terms of Allah's pleasure in terms of this world, the fifth is clear, you do what you want to come to Cambodia, then that's fair. That's this world, you have your way I have my way, no problem in this world. But in the era, it doesn't make sense. You either believe in idolatry or you don't you believe in monotheism, or you believe in polytheism, or you believe in Trinitarian. And we believe in this and that, not all of them can be simultaneously valid. And so the Prophet system is telling the, the missionary coin the final opportunity, you only have one way to get to agenda and that's through La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah asked for the issue of doing Pilates naked, it
was enforced even in the hedge of Abu Bakar. So even in the ninth year, nobody took off naked because I was enforced right then and there.
As for the pagans, not doing the law that was not enforced that year, because they're already there. That was enforced for next year. So in the ninth year, nobody does the half naked, that was the eighth year was the final year, and the ninth year, pagans did do Hajj. But they were told final year.
And then they are told you have four months left. Otherwise, you have to leave. And therefore, this was a clear signal that Islam had triumphed over idolatry. This is the final, if you like nail in the coffin of idolatry. And as I said many many, many times, this is one of the most amazing you turns in, in human history, that in 20 years, in 20 years, an entire civilization gives
up its heritage of over 3000 years and accepts a new religion. There are no there are I can make a joke about Arab idols, you know? Not gonna bad joke sorry, the bugs I just don't get it. There's a show called okay.
I was gonna say the vitals but then our fellow stinney brothers would get very, very hurt because you have an Arab idol that would also level up anyway. There are no pagans anymore that are Arabs, it's gone completely. There are still Arab Christians. Islam tolerated them, right. There used to be Arab Jews up until 1948. You know, this, in fact, still there are ethnically speaking there are Arab Jews ethnically but they're losing their language. Because when they migrated to Israel, so they lost their language now, but they were Jews in Morocco, Jews in Yemen, Jews, they were Arab Jews, Islam tolerated, but no where were their Arab pagans anymore?
Why was this because of these verses.
And this is one of the most interesting, if you like, miracles of Islam, that Islam I eliminated idolatry amongst an entire civilization. And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw the culmination of his efforts there. We just have a few minutes left. So that was in the 90s, the hedgerows also in the ninth year of the hedgerow.
I already mentioned this before, but it was towards the end of the ninth year, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent many Sahaba as either governors or teachers of Islam to various places around the kingdom, especially in the north, and in the south. And especially down south we know of many famous Sahaba went more either bingeable was sent and I told you the story before he walked with my other bingeable he told him I might not see you again. Others were sent as well down south and especially down south Islam, it seemed flourished. People accepted Islam very quickly, very easily. They accepted Islam. And one final incident of accepting Islam also took place in this
year, and that is in the province of Nigerian, so Nigerian is a little bit above Yemen, and
south of Arabia, so it's south of Hejaz and above Yemen, so province, that is, in our times the southern most province of the modern Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. So in the Jinan borders, Yemen, clear.
Right, so this is the southernmost province of modern Saudi Arabia, by the way, is a very beautiful province is a very lush, very green, it's people are very different ethnically, even their language is slightly different type of Arabic accent and whatnot. So this province of Nigeria on our Prophet says that I'm sent highly demanded Waleed, in the beginning of the 10th year of the hijra, just quickly, we have just a few minutes left, much to say here, but I don't want to delay this till till afterwards. And he told how to lead do not attack them, until you give them three days, until you give them three days and tell them that they have the option of accepting Islam.
Or if they're Christian or Jew, they pages Yeah, or they have to leave. Okay? Because pagans are not allowed to stay. So three days they have. And this shows us again, the mercy of the Sharia that this is a very big momentous decision, they have to make it. And if they don't accept, then you can fight them after three days, so harder than it would eat sent criers into the the the main cities and whatnot. And he said, these are your options here, the famous options that we all know about. And lo and behold, they all accepted Islam, the entire province of Iran accepted Islam. And so hardenability was really confused. What do I do now? I bought an army. There's no fighting. So he
sends a letter back to the process. I'm saying gatos would a lot the people of Iran, they all embraced Islam. And I'm now here, what do I do? And so the process of sent a letter back, send a delegation up to me send a few people meaning I want to test them, are they really Muslim? Or I want to teach them what not? So a delegation comes from the group of from the people of Nigeria, and in his half mentions a very interesting conversation that I tried myself to decipher today. And I was not able to do so what is the point of interest for me? So the group enters in and the process some did not recognize them? And he said Monday home, which is the polite way of saying who are you but
it's a polite way of saying this in Arabic, I mean, like you know, who do I have the pleasure of welcoming how would we say this and so my little comb, then he says, that
gunakan Rajab, luminol him Hynde,
which is what something I did not understand. And I looked up all of the reference I have, which translates as you seem to be Indians.
Right now why would the process and called the people of Nigerian, Hynde, people from India, like as if you look now, he's not saying you are Indians, but as if you are from India. Now this is interesting because we don't know of any Indian Hindu that the process have ever met in his life. As far as we know, no Hindi ever came down to to Makkah, contrary to what may be extended ism, I want to believe No, no Hindi came and you know, and then Sorry, guys, it didn't happen, right?
As far as we know, as far as we know, we don't know of anybody. So what why would this be I tried to look up, I couldn't find anything. But I have my theories. And Allah knows best of those theories is that the people have not drawn their complexion is different than other Arabs. And so maybe their complexion and their facial features. Perhaps this was what led him to say that they pray as if you are from hint. Also, it is known that the people are going to try and hide a different type of hairstyle that they would like. Now remember, at that time, hint was, of course, completely pagan and whatnot. So their hairstyles were round, and the curly and whatnot, allow other maybe this as
well. But I don't know, why are these being called hint? So when they said they are from the neuron? So the processing has some back and forth, a little bit of it is harsh, but he's testing their emotion he's seeing are they really Muslim or not. And I don't have time to go into the whole conversation. But he wants to see whether they really are genuinely Muslim or not. And in the end, they come out with flying colors that they are Muslim. And so the process I'm asked them a question that tell me what was the secret? Or the reason that you're always winning against anybody who attacks you? Why are you always the victors? So they say two things. They say, number one, we always
are united, once we make a decision, we never fight amongst ourselves, we go as a team, right. And number two, we never did volume to other people.
We never did volume to other people. Unless they did them, then we attacked But otherwise, we're never volume, as the panel that shows us will lie. This is like a class on management or whatever nothing do. You want to be successful, teamwork workers together, and don't take the rights of other people. Don't do something that is, you know, underhanded, or whatever, be dignified and whatnot. And so the process and I'm then sent on Marina hasm, on Saudi to be their religious leader and Governor. And he sent a letter that one month before he passed away to Ahmed and has him instructing him how to be a religious leader. And maybe I don't know, maybe we'll talk about that letter next
time. I'll see because this letter, by the way, is one of the most famous letters in the Sierra Why? Because it was the last letter that are processed them dictated in his life. And it's over a page long, and it is meant it is directed to Ahmed iv nasm. And it's basically a whole bunch of we'll see is a whole bunch of commandments of how to you know, teach them and whatnot. So basically it is one of the last things one month before he passed away. So like I said, because the people of Iran they accepted Islam for months before he passed away, literally one month before the hedge. So this is now the very last major province under Hejaz, it converts to Islam. And then he sends this letter to
Ahmed hypnotism and it is a very famous letter. And by the way, one phrase in it is the phrase that most of the AHA discussed so much about because it says in it, no one should touch the Koran except if his thought Lima so Khurana Allah thought so from this the majority of the Medina have all say to touch the hold on you to have will do what is the number one evidence it is the Hadith of the husband that the process of sent him a letter when he was the governor This is that that's a filter issue. And for those who took that the class of filter remember we talked about this this raise your final interesting tidbit tangent what not? These days now john has an interesting twist in it.
What is natural known for Who can tell me?
What is no john known for?
louder? No, no, no, no.
Well, okay, that's true, but theologically?
No, there are no Christians. And
there are no Christians in the john anymore.
No, not even Houthi and our Yemeni close, keep on going. Keep on going.
There Indians Indians are everywhere, man.
Look around you. We're surrounded by Indians.
But you're not Hindi. Don't worry.
No. giran is the only place in
No, no, no, no, not zedi.
is smart really Arabs?
Exactly. That's the sentiment I was waiting for. What is smart eally Arabs? It's the only place that has, especially in Arabia. So Saudi Arabia and the modern Saudi Arabia has places that have twelver Shia, right? Yemen has five or Shia ladies, okay? Niger Iran is the one province in that entire region. That is predominantly is SMA e li Shia,
not twelver. Not fiver not know is Smiley's. Now, most of you notice Mary's most of you know who that is smiley. She All right. So in the fatimid, Rain Rain very quickly, I mean, this is nice. I love these things. This is my area of speciality all of these theologies or whatnot is not a part of the the Seattle By the way, in the fatimid. Time. I know, you all want to know. So in default in that time,
the whole university was founded by default them as as you know, and they were the ones who would send out they were the ones who coined the term that were that we now use that with our data and diary, there were the ones who coined it and made it popular that a caller to Islam is called dairy. Right? So they were the first group to really make it to that type of technical term, to give Dawa to people. And we're gonna, you know, send diaries out, of course, as Helen was gonna say, they were the first group to do that. And they had her as her University. So they sent out that is across the globe, to give Dawa, but not to Sunni Islam, but to smilie Islam. And so groups of people converted,
and groups converted in India, and in Yemen, and across the places, and the group that converted in Yemen, remained loyal to the Ottoman Empire. And then slowly but surely, the father of empire disintegrated. There was a civil war between two strands that was Stanley and then izadi, then izadi. Then izadi strand became what is called Agha honeys. So the Agha honey Imam claims biological descent from the ultimate Empire from the ultimate Hoda whether that claim is true or not, I don't know. But he claims descent biological descent from Nasara person His name is Nisa. Liz's brother was with Stanley
and Mr. Lee's chain eventually disappeared
and that became what we call bahara is marylee shear ism. Okay, so both horas and alga harneys are Blood Brothers back somewhere back in the ultimate time was stallion bizarre, bizarre became our harness was stylee slowly but surely his line disappeared. There was a baby by the name of tube and so but you just disappeared and so they say the mom is in hiding as all of the other Shia groups they said the mom is in hiding the other harness or the only Shiri group that says their Imam is law. The Imam is clear. They know their Imam the 1490 ma i think is now 49th right 49 to 4849 I think pretty sure put in 49 the the Z 12 per se the mom is in hiding the seven or say anybody can be
a mom it's not something that is divinely appointed the fibers excuse me the ladies the Smiley's they have split into many groups. The boy hurry. Mustang Li fi is Mary's okay. They're called by Gabby. And mostly because of this they're called Bo hurry from the Gujarati Hindu term vara which means businessman. And so because they were businessmen in Gujarat, they will call her or her body so their body was stylee. Baby. They split into two branches. Okay.
you have Tao Wu de Bora and you have soleimani Bora some of you guys are citizens No, I'm sorry for losing the Arabs and the non. This is your but this is you all have heard that with the water. Haven't you heard that with the Buddha? Right? Okay, why do they say that woody bahara because there's a split. The split is with sulamani Bora and the split is over who's in charge of running the Smiley's not who's the Imam because the mom isn't hiding
the dawoodi bohra in this and the soleimani bahara they had a split between two people named Guess what? Very good you guys are smart. Mashallah. The Overton superhuman, okay. And so that that woody Boras, went with that would the ceremony board has worked with Suleiman and the OD Bo has eventually primarily ended up in where, where that would the borders where India were in India, Gujarat, so predominantly, the WD borders are in Gujarat, that's where they're called bahara
Their split occurred in the 1500s. Suleiman was denied the leadership. So the Yemeni community accepted him as their leader. And they called him from India to come to Yemen. So, he started the soleimani. That would wood sorry, soleimani, bahara musta alley, baby smiley branch. Clear, very simple, right. And from that time on there, they call him die, almost lock, the big die. That's the title given by both soleimani and bajo de la Odisha. Okay, their big guy is called a die of luck. To him, you give 10% to him, you do this. That's the big, he's not the Imam. He is the representative of the Imam. Okay. And of course, these people are very mean, they're considered to be holding pies.
They're also very wealthy. But they say the wealth is used for their followers. And any I have a good friend of mine as well who's of descent. And from his perspective, his Imam is very righteous and whatnot, your mom, his dad is very righteous and whatnot. But in the end of the day, every person gives a good percentage of his money and they live their lifestyles and whatnot, the point being the sulaimani. What I wanted to say, the day and most of the soleimani branch lives in Nigeria to this day. And the Saudi political establishment has a very tense relationship with this, because they're all Saudis. Now, because when King Abdulaziz conquers Arabia, so in the john comes into
Saudi rule, there is huge tension. And the human rights, what is it whatever they call human rights, watch, whatever. They have lots of reports, because these people from their perspective, and I'm sure I'm not even denying this, I'm sure it is the case, are persecuted deprived of jobs education, because obviously, I mean, they are viewed to be of a heretical branch of Islam from the perspective of the establishment. And so the diary almost lock is a Saudi living in the urine. And at least maybe half a million people are following that version of Islam. They're all Naja Rani, the majority of that region, especially two or three of the prominent tribes are smiley. And it's something that
is very interesting. If you go and look at it. In any case, I like this type of stuff. Maybe some of you don't like it. In any case, that's natural for you, and they converted back in the day, and inshallah huhtala. With that we come to the conclusion, did they have the harem before Islam?
I do not know of any evidence that seems to suggest there would have been wrong. Rather, our processes explicitly commanded the Muslims to wear a harem. And therefore, I would,
I would estimate, but I am not 100% sure that the Haram is something that our process then came with, Allah knows best because he clearly said, Don't wear this don't wear that don't wear this and wear this. So the fact that he has to make this command seems to indicate it was not known to those before. Yes.
A safe and 100 asked for the Indian sword. This is mentioned in half a dozen points of the prophetic era.
Maybe it's possible Good point. Maybe the armor that they wore seemed to be that yes, maybe it is possible. Good point there. Yeah, good addition there. Sharla
