If heat is the nemesis of magnetism how does the sun maintain it's magnetism? Does the sun produce more magnetism than can be destroyed by the heat. Thanks

It's not. It's hard to guess what you mean, but if you mean that a ferromagnetic material becomes non ferromagnetic when raised above its Curie temperature, I would argue that this is not relevant to the sun, because it is not a ball of iron.
