This is Episode number 38 of Season 5 with Urdu Subtitles. What is this thing? We are handing out rations to those in need. We already distributed it to the Muslim community. We didn’t want our Christian subjects to miss out on it My Khodja if you can distribute it only to the Muslims… why would you give it to the Christians, too? Our faith advises us to be just and compassionate. It endorses us to respect the rights of all people, even of all living creatures… with whom we share this world. Is your purpose to show yourself in a good light or perhaps to spread your faith? If my intention was to appear good in people’s eyes. I would personaly go and hand it out to them individually. But. as you can see, I brought it to you to hand it out The important thing is to deliver it to those in need. You or I what’s the difference who hands it out.
For, it is sufficient that Allah is the witness that it was done. My Khodja, I am only one awkward Bell-ringer. But it makes you wonder, doesn t it? Excuse my ignorance. Every religion commands benevolence and compassion. So, what makes your religion different? Islam is the only true religion in the sight of Allah. [refers to Qur’an, 3:19; 48:28] Our religion requires us to believe in the Prophethood of… Hz. Isa (Jesus) alayhi s-salam. [peace be upon him] But Christians do not believe in our Prophet (pbuh). Our faith require us to believe in Hz. Musa (Moses) alayhi s-salam, too. However, the Jews do not believe in our Prophet (pbuh).
Islam complements and completes all other religions. [refers to Al-Ma’idah, 5:3] Our faith is Islam, this religion which… Allah (swt) has promised to preserve. With regard to our purpose, we live our religion by our own measure. Our aim is to set a precedent with our life experiences. And, we pray solely for those who do not believe Because it is only Allah Who can grace their hearts with faith. My Khodja you spoke about being compassionate But, your Alps are very aggressive. How does your religion command both at the same time? We won’t use our swords against anyone other than… those who draw their bow against us or harass any creature that lives and breathes. Allah commands us to be compassionate to the oppressed ■ • and severe against the oppressors. And He wants us to be vigilant at any given time. Due to this, one side of our face is as smooth as silk. while the other is as sharp as a sword’s edge. We don t fight enemies out of our Nafs (self, pride, anger). We fight them because they are cruel, and because we are being mindful of Allah’s Divine Approval.
Let me tell you a story as an example. There was a brave-hearted man among us by the name of All (ra). The undefeated hero of battlefields Hz. Ali. Karam Allah Wajhah [may Allah bless his face]. During one Holly Struggle on the path of Al-Haqq [the Battle of the Trench/Khandaq, 627 AD] he has subdued a strong, fearless foe and knocked him down [in one-on-one duel with Amr bin Abdawud] At the moment when he was just about to deal him the final blow, his foe, now facing death. spat Hz. Ali (ra) on his face, out of desperation.
In the face of this situation. Hz. Ali’s (ra) did not kill him a a but he rather spared his life and released him. His foe, who thus escaped the jaws of death. was amazed by this act of compassion and forgiveness of Hz. Ali (ra). He then asked Hz.Ali (ra) to explain this behavior, for he could not make sense of it. So, Hz All (ra) replied. I will have you know that I use my sword solely for the sake of attaining Allah’s Approval When you spat me in the face while I fought gainst you . the situation turned into the one of Nafs [of self pride anger] Consequently, I thought it appropriate to sheathe my sword. Had I killed you then, I would’ve been influenced by my Nafs [recorded by Al-Tabari; Rumi, “Mathnawi”] But. I am the servant only of Al-Haqq [the Absolute Truth] And not of the passing desires and base instincts of my Nafs ” We divide this world into two Bell-ringer. The oppressed and the oppressors. We fight against the oppressors, so that… the oppressed ones may live at ease. A Muslim doesn’t earn appreciation in the sight of Al-Haqq by the number of those he killed. But by the number of those whose lives he saved In our faith there is one rank, which is not attained by taking lives… but rather by giving one’s life, so that other people can live… in justice and compassion. That rank is the status of martyrdom. You explained this very well to me. my Khidja.
Very well indeed. But there is one thing I don’t understand. Why don’t we see all these good things you told me about in every Muslim? Don’t look from the outside, but look into the essence.The essence of Islam. Humans may have short-comings they may be at fault. But, Islam can never. Password for this Episode is Ep38abGM5. I told you about Allah’s commandments. You asked about it all the time, so I told you. Now, it is my turn to ask you a question. Did you see any imperfection in the principles of Islam… in what I’ve told you so far may AMah forgive me for saying this?1 Alincak used to cooperate with them, so pray to Allah, they won’t play some trick on us, my Bey.
