One of the most

00:00:02--> 00:00:03

interesting

00:00:03--> 00:00:06

stories of the sahaba, in my estimation, it's

00:00:06--> 00:00:08

all relative obviously, Some people find different things

00:00:08--> 00:00:10

interesting. Out of the stories of the sahaba,

00:00:10--> 00:00:12

one of the sahaba that really resonates with

00:00:12--> 00:00:14

me, a very intriguing story,

00:00:14--> 00:00:17

is the story of Salman al Farisi. Now,

00:00:17--> 00:00:19

obviously, most of us have heard his story.

00:00:19--> 00:00:22

I wanna just bring about certain aspects of

00:00:22--> 00:00:23

it that I find very

00:00:23--> 00:00:25

powerful, very intriguing.

00:00:25--> 00:00:28

Salman al Farisi, as you all know, Farisi

00:00:28--> 00:00:29

from Persia.

00:00:30--> 00:00:32

And we don't know much about his early

00:00:32--> 00:00:35

life because nobody was a Sahabi in Persia.

00:00:35--> 00:00:37

In fact, Salman al Farisi is the only

00:00:38--> 00:00:41

convert who was Farisi, the only Sahabi that

00:00:41--> 00:00:42

we know of who was Persian,

00:00:42--> 00:00:45

and also the only convert from the religion

00:00:45--> 00:00:47

of the Majus, you know, Zoroastrianism.

00:00:47--> 00:00:49

None of the Sahaba that we know of,

00:00:49--> 00:00:51

and not a single one of them. We

00:00:51--> 00:00:54

have Christian converts, we have Jewish converts, you

00:00:54--> 00:00:56

know, 4, 5, 6, 7 Christian converts, 2

00:00:56--> 00:00:59

or 3 famous Jewish converts. But as for

00:00:59--> 00:01:00

Majus or Zoroastrian,

00:01:01--> 00:01:04

only one. Only one companion who is from

00:01:04--> 00:01:04

the,

00:01:05--> 00:01:07

Zoroastrianism. And of course, I don't want to

00:01:07--> 00:01:09

go into but it is one of the

00:01:09--> 00:01:11

most ancient religions in the world,

00:01:12--> 00:01:15

meaning it is around, what, 4000 years old?

00:01:15--> 00:01:16

And it is also one of the smallest.

00:01:16--> 00:01:17

There's only

00:01:18--> 00:01:21

1,100,000 people left. That's it. Very small faith

00:01:21--> 00:01:24

tradition left. It's very ancient and very, small.

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

And the, the Zoroastrians, the Arabic word majus,

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

it comes from what we call in English

00:01:29--> 00:01:31

the the Magi. The same thing we call

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

in Magi,

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

this Magus, because the priests of the Zoroastrians,

00:01:35--> 00:01:37

they're called Magis. And so the Arabs called

00:01:37--> 00:01:40

the religion after their priests, the Magus.

00:01:40--> 00:01:42

And, of course, very briefly, Zoroastrians are the

00:01:42--> 00:01:45

only religion in the whole world that actually

00:01:45--> 00:01:47

believe in 2 eternal gods. It's the only

00:01:47--> 00:01:50

religion. There's only one faith that actually believes

00:01:50--> 00:01:53

in 2, even, believe it or not, Hinduism

00:01:53--> 00:01:56

actually believes in 1 supreme God, and then

00:01:56--> 00:01:58

many many gods, one ultimate.

00:01:58--> 00:02:00

As for Zoroastrianism, they're the only faith that

00:02:00--> 00:02:02

actually has 2 gods, the God of good,

00:02:02--> 00:02:04

the God of light. Right? And so they

00:02:04--> 00:02:06

have Ahura Mazda, they have Ahriman, and there's

00:02:06--> 00:02:09

a constant battle between them. So God creates,

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

Ahura Mazda creates us, and Ahariman

00:02:12--> 00:02:13

creates evil, darkness,

00:02:14--> 00:02:14

scorpions,

00:02:14--> 00:02:17

lizards. Ahariman creates. I'm not even joking. And

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

Ahura Mazda creates good. Anyway, so Samad al

00:02:19--> 00:02:20

Farsi is born

00:02:21--> 00:02:22

in this Oh, by the way, of course,

00:02:23--> 00:02:24

for India and Pakistan, you know what the

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

Russians are called in our language. What do

00:02:26--> 00:02:27

we call them?

00:02:27--> 00:02:30

Why do we call them Farsis for Persians?

00:02:30--> 00:02:33

Because when the Muslims came to Iran, when

00:02:33--> 00:02:35

the Muslims conquered Iran,

00:02:35--> 00:02:37

100 of 1000 of Zoroastrians

00:02:37--> 00:02:38

fled.

00:02:38--> 00:02:41

And they fled not to Christian lands who

00:02:41--> 00:02:44

had persecuted them, they fled to the closest

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

polytheistic

00:02:45--> 00:02:47

nation, which is India.

00:02:47--> 00:02:49

So they fled to India when the Muslims

00:02:49--> 00:02:52

conquered Iran. And when they came to India,

00:02:52--> 00:02:54

the Indians called them Persians,

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

Parsis.

00:02:55--> 00:02:57

And so because of this, we still know

00:02:57--> 00:02:58

them as Parsis.

00:02:58--> 00:02:59

And obviously,

00:03:00--> 00:03:01

those of us from India, Pakistan, we know

00:03:01--> 00:03:04

their most strange habit when it comes to

00:03:04--> 00:03:04

burial.

00:03:05--> 00:03:06

You know this?

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

Yes, you know. Right? Those that are it's

00:03:09--> 00:03:11

one of the most bizarre rituals in the

00:03:11--> 00:03:12

whole world.

00:03:13--> 00:03:15

They believe when a person is alive, he's

00:03:15--> 00:03:18

good, he's pure. When he dies, he converts

00:03:18--> 00:03:19

from the God of good to the God

00:03:19--> 00:03:21

of evil. His body becomes filthy. When he

00:03:21--> 00:03:24

dies, he cannot be buried because his body

00:03:24--> 00:03:28

is so evil, the physical body, because the

00:03:28--> 00:03:29

soul is gonna go back to God, the

00:03:29--> 00:03:32

body cannot be touched or buried,

00:03:32--> 00:03:34

and so they are not allowed

00:03:34--> 00:03:37

to have the earth touch the body. So

00:03:37--> 00:03:39

what do they do? They have special towers

00:03:40--> 00:03:42

all high up, and they put the body

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

on top of the tower,

00:03:44--> 00:03:47

and they allow vultures to go and eat

00:03:47--> 00:03:50

from the body until there is no more

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

body. SubhanAllah. This is one of the more

00:03:52--> 00:03:53

bizarre things. Anyway, I didn't want to talk

00:03:53--> 00:03:56

about Zoroastrianism. So, mala al Farsi. The only

00:03:56--> 00:03:57

convert that's born in

00:03:58--> 00:04:00

Persia, and he's raised up as an Austrian.

00:04:01--> 00:04:02

And then as you know the story, he

00:04:02--> 00:04:03

was from a noble family. I'll not go

00:04:03--> 00:04:05

over the whole story. It's a very I'm

00:04:05--> 00:04:06

sure sure everybody has heard of this. It's

00:04:06--> 00:04:08

one of the most famous stories of the

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

Sira,

00:04:08--> 00:04:11

of the conversion of Samal al Fassi, that

00:04:11--> 00:04:13

he saw a Christian, heard a Christian, and

00:04:13--> 00:04:13

the Christian

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

was from another sect of Christianity called Nestorianism,

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

all of Allah's Qadr. Nestorianism

00:04:19--> 00:04:20

is also going to a bit of a

00:04:20--> 00:04:23

tangent here. It is the oldest sect of

00:04:23--> 00:04:25

Christianity that is still around. It's only in

00:04:25--> 00:04:28

Iraq, 50,000 people as well. And when the

00:04:28--> 00:04:29

emperor Constantine

00:04:29--> 00:04:30

became

00:04:30--> 00:04:33

Christian, he adopted a version of Christianity that

00:04:33--> 00:04:34

is trinitarianism.

00:04:34--> 00:04:37

3 gods, 31, 3 equals 1. One version,

00:04:37--> 00:04:38

Nestorianism

00:04:38--> 00:04:40

said, no, Jesus was human, and then he

00:04:40--> 00:04:43

became God, or he was adopted by God.

00:04:43--> 00:04:45

I have a bizarre belief that Jesus was

00:04:45--> 00:04:47

human and then God adopted him. He's not

00:04:47--> 00:04:50

the actual son, whatever. So it's a strange

00:04:50--> 00:04:52

movement now, but it is the oldest sect

00:04:52--> 00:04:55

of Christianity. And Allah's qadr, that when Constantine

00:04:56--> 00:04:57

banned all other versions,

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

Nestorians fled to Persia.

00:05:00--> 00:05:03

And so the only version of Christianity

00:05:03--> 00:05:05

in Persia was closer to Tawhid,

00:05:06--> 00:05:08

because they believed in one ultimate God and

00:05:08--> 00:05:11

Jesus was born human, and then he's adopted.

00:05:11--> 00:05:13

He's it's a different belief here. So Salman

00:05:13--> 00:05:15

al Farsi, again, Allah's Qadr, when Allah chooses

00:05:15--> 00:05:18

you cannot, Salman al Farsi then passes by

00:05:18--> 00:05:20

one of these Nestorian monks.

00:05:21--> 00:05:23

And the story, as you're all aware, he

00:05:23--> 00:05:26

is attracted to tawhid. He leaves the nobility

00:05:26--> 00:05:27

of his father. He gives up his life

00:05:27--> 00:05:30

and his wealth, and he joins, you know,

00:05:30--> 00:05:32

Christianity, but his father wants to kill him.

00:05:32--> 00:05:34

And so he flees

00:05:35--> 00:05:36

Persia,

00:05:36--> 00:05:39

going wherever the Christians can take him. He

00:05:39--> 00:05:41

gave up his wealth and his fame. And

00:05:41--> 00:05:42

this is what we see here. I'm gonna

00:05:42--> 00:05:44

come back to this point here. When you

00:05:44--> 00:05:47

give up something for Allah, Allah blesses you

00:05:47--> 00:05:49

with more than what you gave up. He

00:05:49--> 00:05:50

left his land with nothing,

00:05:50--> 00:05:54

and he gave up everything he had, his

00:05:54--> 00:05:57

nobility, his status, and he traveled to the

00:05:57--> 00:05:57

closest

00:05:57--> 00:06:00

land in the lands of the Christians, and

00:06:00--> 00:06:02

he went up to the priest, the highest

00:06:02--> 00:06:04

priest, and that priest adopted him because he

00:06:04--> 00:06:07

was an exotic Persian convert. The priest adopted

00:06:07--> 00:06:09

him. The story is very long. I'm not

00:06:09--> 00:06:11

gonna go there. He goes over a series

00:06:11--> 00:06:14

of 5, 6, 7, some reports say 12

00:06:14--> 00:06:16

priests, one after the other. He goes

00:06:16--> 00:06:18

over wanting to study and search for the

00:06:18--> 00:06:21

truth, wanting to be a scholar and a

00:06:21--> 00:06:23

worshiper of Allah. And he meets good priests

00:06:23--> 00:06:25

and bad priests, but, subhanAllah,

00:06:25--> 00:06:28

even when he meets corrupt priests, his iman

00:06:28--> 00:06:30

in Allah is never shaken, which shows you

00:06:30--> 00:06:32

how strong. You know, usually when a convert,

00:06:32--> 00:06:33

you know, when they have a Muslim who

00:06:33--> 00:06:35

does bad to them, understandably,

00:06:35--> 00:06:37

they feel what type of religion is this,

00:06:37--> 00:06:39

and they leave the faith because of the

00:06:39--> 00:06:41

actions of a Muslim, astaghfirullah, be careful, all

00:06:41--> 00:06:43

Muslim, especially when you do with converts.

00:06:43--> 00:06:46

Salman al Farsi, the priest who adopted him

00:06:46--> 00:06:48

turned out to be an evil and corrupt

00:06:48--> 00:06:51

man, but it only increased his iman and

00:06:51--> 00:06:53

Allah. He could understand the difference between the

00:06:53--> 00:06:56

priest and between Allah and religion. And when

00:06:56--> 00:06:59

he exposed the priest, the Christians admired and

00:06:59--> 00:07:02

respected him, and so Allah blessed an outsider

00:07:02--> 00:07:06

to become an esteemed insider because Salman was

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

true, and Salman lived up to the ideals.

00:07:08--> 00:07:09

And he asked

00:07:10--> 00:07:12

one of his mentors of the historians, who

00:07:12--> 00:07:13

can I go to to study with? I

00:07:13--> 00:07:15

don't want to study this Trinitarian Christianity. I

00:07:15--> 00:07:18

want the real teaching. So the mentor said,

00:07:18--> 00:07:19

there's one person I know you can go

00:07:19--> 00:07:21

to him. And the story goes on, every

00:07:21--> 00:07:23

person he was with 2, 3, 4 years,

00:07:23--> 00:07:25

when he's about to die, he sends him

00:07:25--> 00:07:26

to one person. But, subhanAllah, when you look

00:07:26--> 00:07:28

at the map, and I did this when

00:07:28--> 00:07:29

I was doing the longer series I did

00:07:29--> 00:07:30

a few years ago,

00:07:31--> 00:07:32

literally from Persia,

00:07:32--> 00:07:34

he goes from city to city to city

00:07:34--> 00:07:36

to city, and Allah's Qadr, he makes his

00:07:36--> 00:07:39

way to the borders of Arabia. Wallahi, this

00:07:39--> 00:07:41

is all yaani Allah's Qadr. How? From where

00:07:41--> 00:07:44

to where? Slowly but surely, every priest that

00:07:44--> 00:07:46

sends him forward, he sends him closer to

00:07:46--> 00:07:48

the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, not even

00:07:48--> 00:07:50

knowing that that is going there. Until the

00:07:50--> 00:07:53

final priest that he studies with, the final

00:07:53--> 00:07:55

priest says, I don't know anybody who is

00:07:55--> 00:07:58

remaining upon our version of Christianity. They're all

00:07:58--> 00:07:58

gone.

00:07:59--> 00:07:59

But

00:08:00--> 00:08:02

you are now at a time when the

00:08:02--> 00:08:04

one whom our teachers told us about when

00:08:04--> 00:08:05

Jesus predicted,

00:08:05--> 00:08:08

the one that we predicted is gonna come,

00:08:08--> 00:08:10

we feel I feel he's gonna come. And

00:08:10--> 00:08:12

I will tell you the signs we know.

00:08:12--> 00:08:14

By the way, these signs are not found

00:08:14--> 00:08:16

in the other version of Christianity. So we

00:08:16--> 00:08:19

know that Isa alayhis salaam taught his followers

00:08:19--> 00:08:22

certain signs, and some sects of Christianity preserved

00:08:22--> 00:08:24

those signs. He said, I'm gonna teach you

00:08:24--> 00:08:26

three things. Number

00:08:26--> 00:08:28

1, one of the signs of this prophet,

00:08:28--> 00:08:31

he will not accept charity.

00:08:31--> 00:08:32

He doesn't accept charity.

00:08:33--> 00:08:35

Number 2, he will accept a gift.

00:08:35--> 00:08:39

And number 3, there is a special seal

00:08:39--> 00:08:40

on his body, that when you see it,

00:08:40--> 00:08:42

you will recognize he is

00:08:43--> 00:08:43

khatamun.

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

Khatamurusrul,

00:08:46--> 00:08:48

there's gonna be a khatam, a physical seal

00:08:48--> 00:08:50

that's gonna be on his body. And he

00:08:50--> 00:08:52

said, The only thing I know, he shall

00:08:52--> 00:08:54

be in a land of date palms. That's

00:08:54--> 00:08:55

what we know, that he's gonna come in

00:08:55--> 00:08:56

that land. I don't know what city it

00:08:56--> 00:08:59

is, in a land of date palms. So

00:08:59--> 00:09:01

Salman al Farsi then decided, at this time

00:09:01--> 00:09:03

he has wealth, he has crops, he has,

00:09:03--> 00:09:06

you know, he decided to sell everything

00:09:06--> 00:09:08

and go to the land of date palms.

00:09:08--> 00:09:09

He asked, where is the closest land of

00:09:09--> 00:09:11

date palms? He was told Tabuk

00:09:11--> 00:09:14

because he was close to probably in around

00:09:14--> 00:09:17

Jerusalem area. So Tabuk is the closest date

00:09:17--> 00:09:19

palms. So he sold everything,

00:09:20--> 00:09:22

he found an Arab tribe, he goes, I'm

00:09:22--> 00:09:24

gonna pay you money, can you take me

00:09:24--> 00:09:26

to Tabuk? They said, Sure, no problem. They

00:09:26--> 00:09:28

took his money. Soon as they left the

00:09:28--> 00:09:30

Roman Empire, khalas. They captured him and they

00:09:30--> 00:09:32

sold him into slavery. You know, this is

00:09:32--> 00:09:34

what happens when you didn't have civilization,

00:09:34--> 00:09:36

when you didn't have a global world. There

00:09:36--> 00:09:38

is no police to call. What's he gonna

00:09:38--> 00:09:40

do? He doesn't have a passport. Right? This

00:09:40--> 00:09:41

is the dangers of traveling back in the

00:09:41--> 00:09:42

day. They literally

00:09:43--> 00:09:45

betrayed the trust and captured him and sold

00:09:45--> 00:09:47

him to into,

00:09:47--> 00:09:49

being a slave. By this time, he's probably

00:09:49--> 00:09:51

around 40, 50 years old. We don't know

00:09:51--> 00:09:53

his exact age, but he's probably like already,

00:09:53--> 00:09:54

you know, in a you know, past the

00:09:54--> 00:09:56

prime of his life because he's been with

00:09:56--> 00:09:58

10 different priests going up his way. And

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

then

00:09:59--> 00:10:02

Allah's qadr, the one He sells him to

00:10:02--> 00:10:03

happens to be

00:10:04--> 00:10:05

a yahudi

00:10:05--> 00:10:06

from yathrib.

00:10:07--> 00:10:09

He sells him to yahudi from yathrib. All

00:10:09--> 00:10:11

of this is Allah's qadr. And so he

00:10:11--> 00:10:14

comes back all the way to yathrib, and

00:10:14--> 00:10:15

he is now he has no option, he

00:10:15--> 00:10:17

has nowhere to go, he cannot flee, because

00:10:17--> 00:10:19

again, in this world, can you imagine? If

00:10:19--> 00:10:21

you run away as a slave, you will

00:10:21--> 00:10:22

be executed. Right? So what can you do?

00:10:22--> 00:10:25

So he becomes working. And when he says,

00:10:25--> 00:10:27

the report goes, When I saw yathrib, when

00:10:27--> 00:10:29

I saw the date palms,

00:10:29--> 00:10:31

it came in my heart that

00:10:32--> 00:10:34

Allah has sent me to this place. Look

00:10:34--> 00:10:34

again,

00:10:35--> 00:10:37

he gave up everything. He becomes a slave.

00:10:37--> 00:10:40

His iman is still strong. Look, subhanAllah, this

00:10:40--> 00:10:42

is just mind boggling. He says, soon as

00:10:42--> 00:10:44

soon as I saw yathrib, I realized this

00:10:44--> 00:10:46

is where. And this is one of the

00:10:46--> 00:10:48

main benefits of the story of Salman.

00:10:48--> 00:10:51

When you desire Allah's blessings, you will get

00:10:51--> 00:10:54

Allah's blessings. When you are sincere to Allah,

00:10:54--> 00:10:56

Allah will be sincere to you. When you

00:10:56--> 00:10:58

put your trust in Allah, Allah will do

00:10:58--> 00:11:00

whatever needs to be done. Even as a

00:11:00--> 00:11:02

slave, he didn't lose his iman in Allah.

00:11:02--> 00:11:04

And he's he was hopeful, I'm gonna meet

00:11:04--> 00:11:07

the prophet. As you know, eventually, you know,

00:11:07--> 00:11:08

the prophet salallahu alaihi wa sallam came to

00:11:08--> 00:11:11

Yathrib, and he wanted to test him as

00:11:11--> 00:11:12

a slave. So he said that,

00:11:13--> 00:11:14

I took some of the dates he's a

00:11:14--> 00:11:15

date he's, you know, the slave in the

00:11:15--> 00:11:16

date palm,

00:11:16--> 00:11:17

you know,

00:11:18--> 00:11:19

the date palms that were there, he would

00:11:19--> 00:11:21

be harvesting the dates. He said, I took

00:11:21--> 00:11:23

some of the dates and I presented it

00:11:23--> 00:11:25

to the prophet and I said, this is

00:11:25--> 00:11:28

sadaqa. This is charity for the poor. This

00:11:28--> 00:11:30

is charity. And I put it in front

00:11:30--> 00:11:31

of him. So the Prophet asallallahu alaihi wa

00:11:31--> 00:11:33

sallam said to the people around him, Come,

00:11:33--> 00:11:35

eat from the charity. And Salman said, I

00:11:35--> 00:11:37

saw his hand did not touch a single

00:11:37--> 00:11:39

date. So I said to myself, this is

00:11:39--> 00:11:42

one of the three signs. Okay? Then I

00:11:42--> 00:11:43

worked more and more because he has to

00:11:43--> 00:11:45

work his own money, and then I presented

00:11:45--> 00:11:48

another date a few days later, I said,

00:11:48--> 00:11:49

this is hadiyah.

00:11:50--> 00:11:52

This is a gift to you. And he

00:11:52--> 00:11:54

said to the people, come eat, and he

00:11:54--> 00:11:57

ate as well. So Salman said, this is

00:11:57--> 00:11:58

the second. But then he goes, how am

00:11:58--> 00:12:00

I gonna see the third? How am I

00:12:00--> 00:12:02

gonna get the this seal over here? So

00:12:02--> 00:12:04

he said, I kept on being in the

00:12:04--> 00:12:06

company of the process of every occasion to

00:12:06--> 00:12:09

see, and once he went to the Baqir

00:12:09--> 00:12:11

al garka, the the graveyard. And there was

00:12:11--> 00:12:14

a burial taking place, and he was gonna

00:12:14--> 00:12:16

go inside the the the cupboard to put

00:12:16--> 00:12:18

the body, and he was wearing an izaar.

00:12:18--> 00:12:20

You know, an izaar is basically 2, you

00:12:20--> 00:12:22

know, the ihram type of garment. He's wearing

00:12:22--> 00:12:25

a upper and top garment. So I realized

00:12:25--> 00:12:26

this is my opportunity.

00:12:26--> 00:12:29

I walk behind him, but he had the

00:12:29--> 00:12:32

izaar on, the ridaar on very tightly, and

00:12:32--> 00:12:33

he's not. I wasn't able to see. So

00:12:33--> 00:12:35

I'm saying, what can I do now? I'm

00:12:35--> 00:12:36

walking behind, what can I do now? And

00:12:36--> 00:12:39

the Prophet saw me behind, and so he

00:12:39--> 00:12:39

lowered,

00:12:40--> 00:12:42

he lowered the

00:12:42--> 00:12:44

rida so that he can show me. By

00:12:44--> 00:12:46

the way, what is the khatam? The khatam

00:12:46--> 00:12:47

is a

00:12:47--> 00:12:49

special outgrowth of hair

00:12:49--> 00:12:52

that is small like a pigeon's egg, right

00:12:52--> 00:12:54

in the center of the back. Right in

00:12:54--> 00:12:55

the center of the back, and they say

00:12:55--> 00:12:57

that it is like multicolored.

00:12:57--> 00:12:59

So, it's different colors that are, you know,

00:12:59--> 00:13:00

not normal

00:13:00--> 00:13:02

on most people. This is a special sign

00:13:03--> 00:13:05

that right over here, there's just a small

00:13:05--> 00:13:07

outgrowth of hair that is different colors and

00:13:07--> 00:13:09

is shaped like a pigeon's egg. It's a

00:13:09--> 00:13:10

physical sign.

00:13:10--> 00:13:12

And the fact that the prophet shalallahu alaihi

00:13:12--> 00:13:14

wa sallam lowers his garment, this is not

00:13:14--> 00:13:16

the only time in the seerah.

00:13:16--> 00:13:19

Multiple times he has noticed people walk right

00:13:19--> 00:13:22

behind him, wanting to see something. And so

00:13:22--> 00:13:23

he himself is

00:13:24--> 00:13:26

is aware that this is a sign that

00:13:26--> 00:13:29

some people have been told, because he did

00:13:29--> 00:13:30

not preach this sign.

00:13:31--> 00:13:33

He did not tell sahaba about it. Rather,

00:13:33--> 00:13:36

this was a sign that Musa and Isa

00:13:36--> 00:13:37

had told their followers.

00:13:37--> 00:13:39

And so multiple times, for example, in the

00:13:39--> 00:13:40

Battle of Tabuk,

00:13:41--> 00:13:44

one of the priests came from Roman Empire,

00:13:44--> 00:13:45

and they call him a tanuki. And the

00:13:45--> 00:13:47

same thing, that he wanted to see the

00:13:47--> 00:13:50

sign, and in the conversation he literally stands

00:13:50--> 00:13:51

up and walks behind the prophet alaihi wasalam.

00:13:51--> 00:13:53

Nobody does that. Right? Because he doesn't know

00:13:53--> 00:13:55

what else to do. And the prophet alaihi

00:13:55--> 00:13:56

wasalam realizes it, and he does the same

00:13:56--> 00:13:58

thing to him as well. Right? So Salman

00:13:58--> 00:14:00

al Fasi as well, he does this. And

00:14:00--> 00:14:03

when Salman al Fasi saw this, he burst

00:14:03--> 00:14:06

into tears, and he crushed to kiss the

00:14:06--> 00:14:07

Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, and he rushed

00:14:07--> 00:14:08

to hug him. And the Prophet sallallahu alaihi

00:14:08--> 00:14:09

wa sallam understood,

00:14:09--> 00:14:11

this man's story is not typical,

00:14:12--> 00:14:15

because nobody knows this sign except the sil

00:14:15--> 00:14:18

silah from Jesus Christ. Nobody knows this sign

00:14:18--> 00:14:20

except So he says, What is your story,

00:14:20--> 00:14:21

O Salman?

00:14:21--> 00:14:23

Right? So by the way, every time somebody

00:14:23--> 00:14:25

converts, and we say, What is your story?

00:14:25--> 00:14:27

We're following the sunnah, guys. Okay? Don't worry

00:14:27--> 00:14:29

about it. Because we love to hear convert

00:14:29--> 00:14:31

stories. We love to. It makes our own

00:14:31--> 00:14:34

iman strong. So the prophet himself said, What

00:14:34--> 00:14:36

is your kisas? You must have a kisas.

00:14:36--> 00:14:39

This is a deeper story. So Salman tells

00:14:39--> 00:14:41

the entire story from the beginning to which

00:14:41--> 00:14:44

I'm summarizing. And the prophet said, come to

00:14:44--> 00:14:46

the masjid, you will tell your story to

00:14:46--> 00:14:48

everybody. And so he literally had Salman

00:14:49--> 00:14:51

narrate the whole story. And so when Ustad

00:14:51--> 00:14:53

stands up and says, how? Why did you

00:14:53--> 00:14:55

convert to Islam? He's following the sunnah. He

00:14:55--> 00:14:57

wants everybody to get the story because it

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

validates our iman. We like to hear, you

00:14:59--> 00:15:01

know, what was the story of your conversion?

00:15:01--> 00:15:02

And so

00:15:02--> 00:15:05

Salman gives the whole story. And then the

00:15:05--> 00:15:06

Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam says to him,

00:15:06--> 00:15:07

Oh, Salman,

00:15:07--> 00:15:10

ask your master for a price, we will

00:15:10--> 00:15:11

help you pay it.

00:15:11--> 00:15:13

We will help for you. Ask your master

00:15:13--> 00:15:15

for a price. Then when he went to

00:15:15--> 00:15:16

his master, the master said, I don't want

00:15:16--> 00:15:18

to sell you. But he insisted, so the

00:15:18--> 00:15:22

master gave an exorbitant price, exorbitant. He said,

00:15:22--> 00:15:23

you must plant

00:15:23--> 00:15:24

300

00:15:25--> 00:15:25

date palms

00:15:26--> 00:15:27

for free, and

00:15:28--> 00:15:31

you must wait until those 300 are now

00:15:31--> 00:15:32

able to give

00:15:32--> 00:15:35

their own dates, which is gonna take 5,

00:15:35--> 00:15:37

10 years. Right? And on top of that,

00:15:37--> 00:15:40

give me 40 uqiyyah of silver, 40 grams

00:15:40--> 00:15:42

of silver. Like, that is a phenomenal price.

00:15:42--> 00:15:44

Like, very expensive,

00:15:44--> 00:15:46

far above the average price. But what can

00:15:46--> 00:15:48

you do? So he went back to the

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

Prophetess and I'm sad. Said, You Rasulullah, my

00:15:50--> 00:15:52

master is not budging. 300

00:15:53--> 00:15:54

date palms,

00:15:54--> 00:15:57

not even just planting, until they are able

00:15:57--> 00:15:59

to be now, you know, harvested or you

00:15:59--> 00:16:01

know they're gonna become trees, then you can

00:16:01--> 00:16:03

leave along with that 40. So he said,

00:16:03--> 00:16:06

don't worry. And then he stood up and

00:16:06--> 00:16:08

he gave a fundraiser for Salman. This is

00:16:08--> 00:16:11

one of the few times the prophet himself

00:16:11--> 00:16:14

does the fundraiser. And he says, O people

00:16:14--> 00:16:14

of Madira,

00:16:15--> 00:16:17

bring your date palms

00:16:17--> 00:16:20

to Salman. Whoever is able to give sadaqa,

00:16:20--> 00:16:22

the sadaqa wasn't even money, it was date

00:16:22--> 00:16:24

palms. And it was to the farmers of

00:16:24--> 00:16:26

Madinah that donate

00:16:26--> 00:16:29

not the seed, but dig up an already

00:16:29--> 00:16:30

planted,

00:16:30--> 00:16:32

you know, what do you call it? Sapling.

00:16:32--> 00:16:34

Right? Dig up those seeds that are already

00:16:34--> 00:16:37

sprouting, those small baby ones, so that we

00:16:37--> 00:16:39

already expedite the process. Right? Don't just plant

00:16:39--> 00:16:41

it, dig them, and whoever wants to give

00:16:41--> 00:16:44

sadaqa, give sadaqa to Salman. And so, 1

00:16:44--> 00:16:46

by 1, you know, people, the farmers began

00:16:46--> 00:16:49

coming until they had 300, you know, saplings

00:16:49--> 00:16:50

in the masjid of the prophet shalallahu alaihi

00:16:50--> 00:16:52

wa sallam. Then he he said to Salman,

00:16:52--> 00:16:55

Okay You Salman, go and dig 300 holes.

00:16:55--> 00:16:56

That's on you. You have to do the

00:16:56--> 00:16:59

physical labor. You do the 300 holes, but

00:16:59--> 00:17:01

don't plant them. I will plant them. So

00:17:01--> 00:17:04

Salman went and he spent the whole few

00:17:04--> 00:17:06

days digging 300 holes, then the Prophet shalallahu

00:17:06--> 00:17:08

alaihi wa sallam took a team of people.

00:17:08--> 00:17:11

SubhanAllah. Willa, amazing how much work to free

00:17:11--> 00:17:13

Salman. Right? The Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam went

00:17:13--> 00:17:15

with a group of people. They're all carrying,

00:17:15--> 00:17:17

you know, the 300. And then he, with

00:17:17--> 00:17:20

his own hands, salallahu alayhi wa sallam, planted

00:17:20--> 00:17:21

300

00:17:22--> 00:17:24

date palms. Can you imagine? It's gonna take

00:17:24--> 00:17:27

at least 4, 5 hours minimum, bare minimum

00:17:27--> 00:17:30

of manual labor. He did it himself, and

00:17:30--> 00:17:32

he made dua every time when he planted.

00:17:32--> 00:17:34

He made du'a. Of course, the sahaba are

00:17:34--> 00:17:36

helping to get to him. You know, there's

00:17:36--> 00:17:38

a whole teamwork going on here, but each

00:17:38--> 00:17:40

one of them, he's making special du'a and

00:17:40--> 00:17:42

planting it. And, subhanAllah, of course, this is

00:17:42--> 00:17:45

the barakah. Then that seed comes out, and

00:17:45--> 00:17:46

within a few weeks or months, all of

00:17:46--> 00:17:49

these 300 have now gone, years, you know,

00:17:49--> 00:17:51

that all of this has happened. And so

00:17:51--> 00:17:53

that is done. How about the money? What's

00:17:53--> 00:17:55

gonna happen? That we don't have 40 grams

00:17:55--> 00:17:57

of silver. So once,

00:17:57--> 00:17:59

a man came and said, You Rasulullah, I

00:17:59--> 00:18:00

found some

00:18:01--> 00:18:03

little bit, you know, amount here, and, this

00:18:03--> 00:18:04

is fisabilillah,

00:18:04--> 00:18:06

sadaqa. This is I'm giving you, to give

00:18:06--> 00:18:08

to somebody. So the prophet got this small

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

amount

00:18:09--> 00:18:12

and he said, ein alfarisi. Where's the Farsi

00:18:12--> 00:18:14

guy? Ain al Farsi. Where's the Because there's

00:18:14--> 00:18:16

only 1 Persian in all of Bandina. So

00:18:16--> 00:18:18

he was a slave, they went and called

00:18:18--> 00:18:20

him. So the Prophet said, Here, this is

00:18:20--> 00:18:22

for your freedom. Salman said, You Rasulullah,

00:18:23--> 00:18:24

this is not gonna this is not he

00:18:24--> 00:18:27

wanted 40 grams, it's not gonna work. SubhanAllah,

00:18:27--> 00:18:28

listen to this. The Prophet shalallahu alaihi wa

00:18:28--> 00:18:30

sallam took that silver,

00:18:30--> 00:18:32

he put it on his tongue,

00:18:33--> 00:18:35

and he went back and forth and he

00:18:35--> 00:18:37

said, Go tell your master to weigh this.

00:18:37--> 00:18:39

Go tell him to weigh it. And it's

00:18:39--> 00:18:41

a small amount. It's Allah's we don't see

00:18:41--> 00:18:42

how this is a different world. This is

00:18:42--> 00:18:44

not our world of ulmulghayb.

00:18:44--> 00:18:46

So He takes this small amount as if

00:18:46--> 00:18:48

it is a large amount, and he says

00:18:48--> 00:18:50

to the man, this is the amount you

00:18:50--> 00:18:52

wanted. The man just takes it, weighs it,

00:18:52--> 00:18:54

and turns out to be 40. Like in

00:18:54--> 00:18:56

his eyes or whatever, it is that amount.

00:18:56--> 00:18:58

Right? So he said, khalas, you are free

00:18:58--> 00:19:00

then. And this incident took place

00:19:00--> 00:19:02

a few weeks before the battle of khandaq.

00:19:02--> 00:19:04

So Salman, when he's narrating as a much

00:19:04--> 00:19:07

older man, he said, because of this, I

00:19:07--> 00:19:10

was not able to attend Badr and Uhud,

00:19:10--> 00:19:12

and that is my biggest regret. He regrets

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

that he was a slave, so he couldn't

00:19:14--> 00:19:16

participate in Badar Uhura, and he's making an

00:19:16--> 00:19:18

excuse. I'm sorry, guys. You know, I really

00:19:18--> 00:19:20

wanted to, but it's not my I couldn't

00:19:20--> 00:19:22

have done anything. So he's freed before the

00:19:22--> 00:19:24

baalal khandaq. You all know he was the

00:19:24--> 00:19:26

one who gave the advice for the khandaq

00:19:26--> 00:19:28

because he's bringing in new technology. And again,

00:19:28--> 00:19:30

this shows us the spirit of Islam. We

00:19:30--> 00:19:33

are always willing to take knowledge from people

00:19:33--> 00:19:35

outside of our faith that is not related

00:19:35--> 00:19:37

to Allah and His Messenger. This is one

00:19:37--> 00:19:38

of the characteristics of the Muslims from the

00:19:38--> 00:19:41

beginning of time. We're always willing to engage

00:19:41--> 00:19:42

with

00:19:42--> 00:19:44

outside technology, civilization,

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

fakafah. No problem. As long as it's not

00:19:46--> 00:19:48

about, you know, iman and what? Yes, we

00:19:48--> 00:19:50

can take from them. So Salman benefits in

00:19:50--> 00:19:51

this regard. Long story short, I don't go

00:19:51--> 00:19:53

over every single detail. There's one point that

00:19:53--> 00:19:55

is really so profound to me, and that

00:19:55--> 00:19:58

is, of course, there's many ahadith praising Salman,

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

many many blessings of Salman. By the way,

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

in the battle of khandaq, one other thing

00:20:01--> 00:20:03

before we get to the end, the ansar

00:20:03--> 00:20:05

and the wahajirun. Salman is neither muhajir nor

00:20:05--> 00:20:08

ansari. Right? He's neither muhajir nor ansari because

00:20:08--> 00:20:10

he's a slave that was freed in in

00:20:10--> 00:20:12

Medina. He's not Madani,

00:20:12--> 00:20:15

and he's not Maqih mahaaja. So, during the

00:20:15--> 00:20:16

battle of khandaq,

00:20:16--> 00:20:18

when the sahaba split into 2 teams to

00:20:18--> 00:20:21

dig, and they're, you know, digging for the

00:20:21--> 00:20:22

khandaq,

00:20:22--> 00:20:24

Each team said, Salman, just come join us.

00:20:24--> 00:20:26

We want you to come. Right? It's like

00:20:26--> 00:20:28

a competition. You're come on. You migrated your

00:20:28--> 00:20:30

Makkah. No, no. You were here in Madinah.

00:20:30--> 00:20:32

You're Ansari. So they're teasing each other in

00:20:32--> 00:20:35

a, you know, halal, gentle Islamic brotherhood competition.

00:20:36--> 00:20:38

Each one is praising Salman, join us. And

00:20:38--> 00:20:40

Salman stuck, which side do I go to

00:20:40--> 00:20:41

to help? And then the Prophet shalallahu alaihi

00:20:41--> 00:20:43

wa sallam came out. He held the hand

00:20:43--> 00:20:45

of Salman, and he said, Salman

00:20:46--> 00:20:50

is neither Muhajir nor Ansari, Salman minna Ahlalbayt.

00:20:51--> 00:20:54

He gave him a VIP upgrade, the only

00:20:54--> 00:20:55

sahabi that's not Ahlalbayt,

00:20:56--> 00:21:00

that was upgraded to Ahlalbayt status. That and

00:21:00--> 00:21:02

that's why Salman could never accept sadaqah till

00:21:02--> 00:21:04

he died, because the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa

00:21:04--> 00:21:06

sallam upgraded him to Ahlulbayt status. Like, he

00:21:06--> 00:21:09

is considered amongst us because he he doesn't

00:21:09--> 00:21:11

have anybody else, we will adopt him, and

00:21:11--> 00:21:14

he'll be considered from my Ahlulbayt, from the

00:21:14--> 00:21:16

Ahlulbayt. It's one of the blessings of Salman

00:21:16--> 00:21:18

that no other companion outside of the actual

00:21:18--> 00:21:19

Ahlulbayt

00:21:19--> 00:21:22

got. And so Salman was given a special

00:21:22--> 00:21:23

status in this regard. Anyway, long story short,

00:21:23--> 00:21:25

much can be said here. One of the

00:21:25--> 00:21:26

things that to me is the most mind

00:21:26--> 00:21:27

boggling and profound

00:21:28--> 00:21:31

is that after the prophet passed away, Salman

00:21:31--> 00:21:33

is now participating in the battles, and he

00:21:33--> 00:21:34

joins the battle of Qadisiyyah

00:21:35--> 00:21:36

with Khaled ibn al Walid and,

00:21:37--> 00:21:40

and, Sadame Broukha, sorry. And he joins the

00:21:40--> 00:21:41

battle of Qadisiyyah.

00:21:41--> 00:21:43

The battle of Qadisiyyah was against whom?

00:21:44--> 00:21:45

His own peoples.

00:21:46--> 00:21:47

It was against the Persians.

00:21:48--> 00:21:50

And so now he is one of the

00:21:50--> 00:21:50

commanders

00:21:51--> 00:21:52

in the battle of Qadisiyyah

00:21:52--> 00:21:55

that is meant to free his own people

00:21:55--> 00:21:55

from the paganism

00:21:56--> 00:21:58

and to invite them to Islam. And he,

00:21:58--> 00:22:00

of course, is one of the main leaders

00:22:00--> 00:22:02

and generals. Qadisiyyah is a massive victory,

00:22:03--> 00:22:06

and the Persian Empire is conquered, and Salman

00:22:06--> 00:22:09

al Farisi is amongst the first of the

00:22:09--> 00:22:12

people who enter the very land that was

00:22:12--> 00:22:14

his once upon a time. He's the only

00:22:14--> 00:22:17

Persian Sahabi. Right? And now he enters

00:22:17--> 00:22:18

the very palaces

00:22:19--> 00:22:20

of the land that he could not go

00:22:20--> 00:22:21

in as a citizen.

00:22:22--> 00:22:24

You cannot walk into, you know, the powers,

00:22:24--> 00:22:26

the palaces of the people when you're a

00:22:26--> 00:22:29

citizen. Now he comes from a slave, from

00:22:29--> 00:22:30

leaving

00:22:30--> 00:22:33

as somebody that gave up everything, right? Now

00:22:33--> 00:22:36

Allah blessed him to walk into the most

00:22:36--> 00:22:37

magnificent

00:22:37--> 00:22:39

palace, you know, of,

00:22:40--> 00:22:41

the the the emperor of the Sassanid,

00:22:42--> 00:22:45

empire. By the way, the palace that, is

00:22:45--> 00:22:47

at Tessaf al Mada'in, it is still standing,

00:22:48--> 00:22:49

and it is considered to be one of

00:22:49--> 00:22:51

the wonders of the world. It is a

00:22:51--> 00:22:53

magnificent palace. It's like an arch that goes

00:22:53--> 00:22:55

up like this. The remnants are still there.

00:22:56--> 00:22:59

That very palace, Salman al Farsi, literally that

00:22:59--> 00:23:01

exact same palace is still there. Salman al

00:23:01--> 00:23:03

Farsi walked into it, and subhanAllah,

00:23:04--> 00:23:06

the amir said to Salman al Farsi,

00:23:07--> 00:23:09

you shall be the leader of or the

00:23:09--> 00:23:11

governor of your land here.

00:23:12--> 00:23:12

SubhanAllah,

00:23:13--> 00:23:14

to me, this is mind boggling.

00:23:15--> 00:23:18

Wallahi, look from where to where? Right? He

00:23:18--> 00:23:19

left his land

00:23:19--> 00:23:20

fleeing,

00:23:21--> 00:23:21

persecuted,

00:23:22--> 00:23:24

and he comes back more than 50, 60,

00:23:24--> 00:23:26

70 years later. We don't know exactly how

00:23:26--> 00:23:28

long. He comes back after all of these

00:23:28--> 00:23:29

years,

00:23:29--> 00:23:30

and he becomes

00:23:31--> 00:23:33

the, not the ruler, because obviously the ruler

00:23:33--> 00:23:35

is Abu Bakr as Sadia, but the governor.

00:23:35--> 00:23:38

He basically becomes the de facto ruler and

00:23:38--> 00:23:41

the governor of his own province and land,

00:23:41--> 00:23:41

subhanAllah.

00:23:42--> 00:23:45

This really shows us the blessings, and he

00:23:45--> 00:23:47

passes away there, and his kabr is over

00:23:47--> 00:23:49

there. SubhanAllah, he left the very land, and

00:23:49--> 00:23:51

now he comes back, and he becomes the

00:23:51--> 00:23:54

one in charge. What a what a beautiful

00:23:55--> 00:23:57

anecdote and story that shows us when you

00:23:57--> 00:23:59

put your trust in Allah, and when you

00:23:59--> 00:24:01

realize Allah will take care of me, indeed

00:24:01--> 00:24:03

Allah takes care of you. Salman got deen

00:24:03--> 00:24:05

and dunya. Salman By the way, he got

00:24:05--> 00:24:07

dunya, but he never ever lived

00:24:08--> 00:24:09

in a lavish way. In fact, it is

00:24:09--> 00:24:11

said he would not sleep in the palace.

00:24:11--> 00:24:13

He would sleep under a tree because he

00:24:13--> 00:24:15

didn't His whole life, he was monastery and

00:24:15--> 00:24:17

Christianity. His whole life was, you know, zuhd

00:24:17--> 00:24:20

and ibadah and whatnot. So he didn't like

00:24:20--> 00:24:22

the palace. So he went and slept on

00:24:22--> 00:24:23

a tree. The people would say to him,

00:24:23--> 00:24:25

You have the palace. He goes, This is

00:24:25--> 00:24:27

more beloved to me, just to sleep on

00:24:27--> 00:24:29

the ground and whatnot. Until finally somebody said,

00:24:29--> 00:24:30

I have to build you a house. He

00:24:30--> 00:24:32

came to Semayi, I beg you, let me

00:24:32--> 00:24:34

build you a house. Salman said, How large

00:24:34--> 00:24:36

is it gonna be? The man understood. So

00:24:36--> 00:24:38

he goes, it will be so large that

00:24:38--> 00:24:40

when you stand up, your head is gonna

00:24:40--> 00:24:42

head hit against the roof. And when you

00:24:42--> 00:24:44

put your feet out, you won't have

00:24:44--> 00:24:46

you know, the space to fully spread it.

00:24:46--> 00:24:48

He goes, okay, that's fine then. So he

00:24:48--> 00:24:50

built him a small little hut, and that

00:24:50--> 00:24:52

was his house. And it is said once

00:24:52--> 00:24:54

the books of history that Salman would dress

00:24:54--> 00:24:57

exactly the same, no entourage, once a merchant

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

came from another land

00:24:59--> 00:25:01

to sell his goods, and he needed help

00:25:01--> 00:25:04

transporting from the camel to the bazaar. He's

00:25:04--> 00:25:07

looking for some cheap laborer, right? And he

00:25:07--> 00:25:09

sees Salman, but he doesn't recognize him. So

00:25:09--> 00:25:11

he goes, Hey, you, enter. Can you help

00:25:11--> 00:25:13

me with my goods? He wants to find

00:25:13--> 00:25:15

somebody, you know, that you can find like

00:25:15--> 00:25:18

some comfort in. So Salman comes up, starts

00:25:18--> 00:25:20

helping the goods from the man's camel to

00:25:20--> 00:25:22

the bazaar. When the other people see, he

00:25:22--> 00:25:24

said, You Amir, you know, let us help

00:25:24--> 00:25:25

you. So the man said, Who is this

00:25:25--> 00:25:27

guy? He goes, This is the leader. This

00:25:27--> 00:25:29

is Salman al Farisi. He said, I'm so

00:25:29--> 00:25:31

sorry, I didn't recognize you. And Salman said,

00:25:31--> 00:25:33

So what? You asked me a favor, and

00:25:33--> 00:25:35

I'm doing it. What's the big deal? You

00:25:35--> 00:25:36

want me to be help? I'm helping you,

00:25:36--> 00:25:38

and I So he tried to insist, and

00:25:38--> 00:25:40

the man said, no. It was my niyyah

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

to take your goods from

00:25:42--> 00:25:43

your place to your bazaar, and I'm gonna

00:25:43--> 00:25:46

finish this. SubhanAllah, the humility of Salman al

00:25:46--> 00:25:47

Farsi. And of course, he passed away and

00:25:47--> 00:25:49

he's buried over there. Our Prophet shalallahu alaihi

00:25:49--> 00:25:52

wa sallam said that if Iman were in

00:25:52--> 00:25:54

one of the northern stars,

00:25:54--> 00:25:56

then this person from Persia would have gotten

00:25:56--> 00:25:58

it. This is a hadith. If Iman were

00:25:58--> 00:26:00

found way up there in the skies, then

00:26:00--> 00:26:03

the farisih would have found it up there.

00:26:03--> 00:26:06

His niyyah was so strong, he wanted hidayah

00:26:06--> 00:26:08

that Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala allowed him to

00:26:08--> 00:26:10

go city by

00:26:10--> 00:26:13

city, mentor by mentor, until finally he meds

00:26:13--> 00:26:15

to the very city of the Prophet salallahu

00:26:15--> 00:26:17

alayhi wasalam. Whoever puts his trust in Allah,

00:26:17--> 00:26:19

Allah will take care of him. May Allah

00:26:19--> 00:26:20

have

00:26:20--> 00:26:22

with him.

00:26:20--> 00:26:22

with him.
