Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Hill Caribe Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
Okay, last lesson we went over the apostate tribes who around Medina and who were thinking about oh, some who actually attacked Medina. And Abubakar, acidic Rhodiola and who fended them off, he expelled him from around that area. Now, going back to the map, I gave you
this map. Actually, no, it's this map. Here. If you remember this map, there was a large portion of the Arab peninsula, which had actually rebelled. Okay. Now, until now, I will talk about the Allah Allah who had only dealt with those who are just around Medina, that was the entity. But really, all of this area had rebelled besides a few pockets here and there, mocha Medina dive, and as you can see the green portion here, and a few other places here. Now, this was also an issue. Why? Because for because of the Korean War, and who, when the Sahaba came to him, and they said to a worker, there's no need for you to fight everybody. And we walked out of the line. I said, are you also Dean
what Anna? Hi, is it possible that the Dean can be decreased and Abu Bakar is alive, meaning decrease from what it was in the time of the Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam, and then he said, If somebody is not ready to give a string, a piece of rope, which he gave in the time of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam in zakat i boubakeur will fight them.
So now I'm working is dealt with those who are around him. Now what he does, is that he wants to fight everybody in this area who has rebelled as you can imagine, subhanAllah is he taking the fight to them? So the first thing Abu Bakar said, we have the Allah and who does that he sends letters to all the tribal leaders. So in these letters, Abubaker of the Allah and Who Gives them Dawa, to return back to Islam, for those who weren't paying this ecard that they need to pay this a govt and then Abubaker all the Allah and who also says to them, that if you do not come back, if you carry on with your rebellion, then the consequences will be evil for you in this dunya and the hereafter.
And then he goes on to say that we will carry on fighting you until our last breath. So his ultimatum is quite clear that either you return or either we will fight you until the last breath.
Now, one of the benefits of this was that by sending this letter out, it gave enough time for the army of Osama bin Zayed Radi Allahu Anhu to come back, and Subhanallah the army of Osama bin Zayed although he was only 17 or 18 years old, was very successful.
within the lifetime of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, three prophets popped up. There was a prophet called Mercy lemma, which we will speak about an imperfect called to lay her at a profit called us with the answer. And what these guys obviously wanted, was that they realized that within a period of 23 years, the Mercy of Allah salAllahu Alaihe Salam became the ruler of all the area, he had 1000s, hundreds of 1000s of followers. So if we claim profited, maybe we will attain exactly the same thing. Now, the perfect is Allah, Allah within his lifetime had a dream
that he's wearing these two gold bangles.
And then he blows. And one of these gold bangle ends up in nudged, and the other gold bangle ends up in Yemen. So the messenger of Allah gave the interpretation, that from these two places, two false prophets will emerge.
So from Yemen,
a man came he named was he, his name was known as us what and see, now let me just give you a big background to what was happening in Yemen in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
In the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just after solo today via sola Arabia was when the Muslims had a treaty with the people of Makkah, the people of Quraysh. Now, apparently Subhanallah this treaty, the Muslims conceded on nearly every single point. So if you looked at this treaty, it seemed like the Muslims that I see lost out, but when the messenger of Allah was going home, from the salon for the BIA, Allah subhanaw taala revealed the verses enough for the Hanukkah for 10 bobina. Indeed, we have descended upon you a manifest victory. So now, the progress Allah Salam has this treaty with the people of Quraysh. Now the biggest obstacles in the Dawa were the
people of Quraysh many people wanted to embrace Islam, but they were waiting, who's going to win this battle other Muslim want to wait, I'm gonna win. So now this freed up the Prophet salallahu Alaihe salam from his biggest headache, which was the crush. So what the prophets Allah Salam did now he's began to send letters. So he sent letters to different kings, leader of Egypt, leader of the Byzantines, and amongst them was also the leader of the super power of the day, which were the Persians. So the prophets Allah said, I sent him a letter today was put aways
and when the letter reached him, he read this letter, in which the prophets Allah, Allah, Allah, he was sent, is it in the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, from the Prophet Mohammed to the kisser rule of Persian as evil, as he will,
Look here the prophets Allah Salam was giving a bow yet, the message of Allah doesn't say, from Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah to the racial Kareem, to the leader of the kuffaar.
What does he do? He uses words, why? Because the purpose Allah wants him to come closer to the deen of Allah subhanaw taala. We're not interested in winning the argument. We are interested in winning the man. Many of us when we do our Dawa, it's actually on an ego trip.
We're not worried about the Hidayat of that person. As long as you and I win the argument doesn't matter. We win the argument you lose the man. Sometimes you shows a bit of humility. You may not win the argument in the way you want to win it when you win the man and the man and the prophets Allah Salaam. He said he sent the letter Illa Aviemore force to the king of the Roman to the king of the Persians. And then he says in this blessed are those who follow guidance and put faith in Allah and His messenger. I'm a witness that none is worthy of worship except Allah. He is the one and has no partners and Muhammad is His servant and Messenger. I call you to Allah, as I am the prophet sent to
you, all mankind, to warn those alive and to establish the truth in the eyes of the unbelievers, except Islam, and you will be secure. In case you reject it, you shall be the sin of all your followers of all the Zoroastrians, meaning if you embrace Islam, then all those possibly underneath you will embrace Islam, you will get the reward for them. But if you become the obstacle that nobody else will embrace Islam, and you will get the sin of all those who did not embrace Islam. So the Prophet SAW Allah and Islam send it this letter. Now remember, Persians are the superpower of the day.
These were the people on the battle of Hubdoc the prophets Allah Allah alayhi wa sallam told us Sahaba A time will come we will take Yemen a title to be take come, we will take the busy times at time will come that we will take the superpower of the day. And they had this White House in Iraq which was the capital medallion. So we will take the white palace.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam now sends a letter to the leader of those who lived in that white Palace, the kisser. So he looks at this letter
and he tears it up.
And he throws it away. The Sahaba that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it was Abdullah bin whose offer wrote the Allah and so he comes back. And he informs a message of Allah that when I gave him the letter, he took it and he tore it up. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said mazurka love will
May Allah tear up his kingdom like he tore up my letter.
But see anybody giving somebody like the Kisara Dawa is an insult.
So what does he do?
He sends a message to his governor in Yemen.
Yemen was ruled by the Persians, the man called Berzon, who's also Persian. And he says to him, send me your men Send your men to this man Mohammed and bring Mohammed to me. How dare he give me Tao?
so But um, because Yemen is close by he sends two of his most strongest and his most powerful soldiers.
So first, they go to Makkah.
And the people of Makkah say no, no, he's in Medina. He's no longer here is in Medina.
So now they go to Medina and the people of Croatia happy Oh, Muhammad game's over. He's messed with the wrong guy and how the Kisara so how many people reset it or send an army they said only two people. So he's, he's two soldiers, powerful soldiers, huge men, big moustache, shaven hair, come to Medina. And they go to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they say to the Messenger of Allah, the case Ross calling you, you better get ready. And if you reject, then you know what the Kisara is made off. He will kill you, He will destroy your own and he will ruin your country.
So the messenger of Allah hardly looks at them.
And he says to them,
what's all this much about this big, much? What's all about? And they say, Oh, our King, ruler, our Lord has commanded us to have this. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Maya robe has commanded me to trim the moustache and to lengthen the bit.
And then the narrations mentioned that these two powerful soldiers, Persian superpower, their main commanders shaking in the company of the Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah you Salaam and they sweating and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah granted mute Rob,
that people feel my rope, they feel my presence, my aura, and those who are my enemy, my terror to the distance of an entire month amongst travel away.
So they say what's your answer? The Prophet sallallahu Lutheranism come back tomorrow.
So the next day they come back, the Messenger of Allah said to them go away.
There will be no meeting with the Kisara nobody will be the kiss of death. So what you mean is a yo kisser is dead.
So now they go back to Yemen.
And they tell Berzon that this is what happened and this man said that the gissler is dead.
Now it was impossible that the news could have reached the prophets Allah Allah, Allah Islam that quick. Allah subhanaw taala informed the prophets Allah Allah Allah has done so Berzon realize that this is a true prophet, and then boddam Embrace the deen of Allah subhanho wa taala.
So this is the background of Yemen. So what the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did is that he kept began in charge of Yemen. He was a Muslim, now Persian descent Muslim,
a prophet approximately when the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came from Hijjah Tada. So he came from the hutch. That was the time Berzon passed away, and then his son, Shahar became in charge of Yemen.
Now, it was approximately that time where US word MC popped up. So who was a soda and see, he was his real name was a black bean cap. His nickname was the possessor of the veil because he used to wear a veil. And also he was known as the Hemara, the owner of the donkey because he could make this donkey do some funny tricks. But he was also a sorcerer, he knew witchcraft. So this he used to quite an extent later on once he was propagating his religion. Physically he was known to be very, very strong. Complexion wise he was darker complexion. That's why he was known as a sort of NC
And the interesting thing is that normally you have a Jabra he comes, this guy didn't have Jabra, he had two angels, according to him, one was called psychic and the other one will call Shakti.
So these were the names of his angels.
They write actually he worships arms that he had in his control, which would tell him certain things of the unseen
and this was one of his major way of actually controlling the masses. Now
the worthy any Sahaba love the Allah and home, in Yemen in Santa, yes, who was there? Abu Musa actually wrote the Allah Ando and while the Mujibur of the alumno you remember the famous story where the prophets Allah Salam took more than a gerbil to the outskirts of Medina.
And then he told him on while possibly after this meeting, you will never meet me again. And then he told me that he loved him. This is where the message of Allah was sending. He sent him to Yemen. So a pseudo NC. When he started off his Dawa,
he first took neuron, then he took Santa, he killed the governor of Santa Shahara. And then he married his wife, Azad, his tribe, his own tribe embraced, you know, the religion of a pseudo NC, but also the vast majority of the people in Yemen, also embrace why because they had this tribal loyalty system, where if one of your leaders embraces the religion, generally they all go that way and because he was from Yemen,
all those the vast majority of the people in Yemen now followed his religion.
Those who remained very interesting those who remained firm on the deed were actually the Persians. So the Persian royalty remained firm on the deed, but the vast majority of the Arabs actually became follows of his theme. Now, so Delancey
whenever he would take a place, if the person did not believe in his religion, he would kill them. So there's a story about a man called not mine.
He presented not one the religion not man refused to accept his religion. So he chopped No man, up slowly, slowly, but Alhamdulillah no man remained firm on the deen of Allah subhanaw taala. There's also the story of Muslim hellhole learn a very famous story of Muslim hold on Muslim hold on he was a very renowned individual very respected when he presented his religion to be refused. So he said, Okay, what we're going to do, we are going to make an example of the sky.
So what they did is that they gathered wood, they said, We're going to burn him, but we're going to burn him in front of people. So people know if they don't accept the dean of us what this will be the outcome. So this is what they do. So they gather a lot of wood. They call the people they light the fire, they throw him in La Ilaha illa Allah,
Allah subhanho wa Taala the duo of all things ensured that the fire did not burn him. Now the people are watching this. So they many of them are turning away from his religion. So some of the advisors said get this guy off here. By the time it finishes, everybody will go back towards Islam. So he took Muslim a whole lot out of the fire. And then they expelled Muslim whole Lonnie, from Sarah. So Muslim or whole Lonnie goes to Medina. By this time the message of Allah Allah Allah Allah Islam has passed away.
So when he reaches Medina, he goes into the masjid
and he meets amagno Kebab. Now, Omar Nakata heard about Muslim bin Holon he but had never met him. So he said, We have you covered. He says Yemen, he said, Oh, have you got any news about our brother called Muslim in Whoa, Lonnie. He said, I am that man Muslim.
So amagno Capalbo the Allah Allah
takes him to meet Abu Bakr Siddiq, who was the Khalifa at the time, and then amaro the Allah and who makes it dry, says
Allah because All Praise be to Allah who has kept me alive to meet a man who has fulfilled the Sunnah of Ibrahim alayhi wa sallam. Why? Because the primal essence Allah was also thrown into the fire.
so the Muslims now decided that they wanted to fight
us with the lancy
So inshallah we'll leave it to here and then we will carry on with the issue of the prophet hood as well and see and how the Muslims actually dealt with him Inshallah, in the next series Baraka Allah He comes out from Allah Haven salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
