You're listening to lm Institute's podcast, visit us on the web at vollum institute.org. And join us on [email protected] slash polam Institute smilla Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah he was he edge marine.

00:00:21--> 00:00:32

Shalom, we're continuing with our Sierra RC our series on the life of the prophet to love it and send them a serial number we had the prophetic biography sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:00:33--> 00:00:37

In the previous session, last week's session,

00:00:38--> 00:00:58

we talked about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, of course, the miraculous incidents of the splitting of the chest of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. How what exactly occurred, why did it occur? What were the what were some of the wisdoms and the benefit of that entire procedure being done to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:00:59--> 00:01:34

And then as a consequence of that, we talked about how Halima assadi how she became very nervous at that time, you know, because such such a traumatic incident had occurred with the child in her care. So her and her husband decided this was the appropriate time to return the child back to his family back to his mother in Mecca. And so she comes to Makkah, and she leaves, Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who is about four, four and a half years old, she leaves him with his mother Amina, and returns him back to the care of his extended family.

00:01:36--> 00:02:11

There's not a whole lot of detail that we have about what transpires over the next year and a half to two years. But we do know this much that of course, the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam went back to being in the care of his mother. And of course, his grandfather was there, his uncles and his aunts and the rest of the extended family who know Hashem, they were all there. And the prophets, a lot of them grew up like any other four year old child would grow up at that time, you know, he had the same experiences that any four year old child would have at that time, where the life of that child pretty much revolves around, you know,

00:02:12--> 00:02:50

the child at that age is still pretty dependent upon his or her mother for most of their needs, from being fed to being washed to being dressed and clothed. And that's when a child begins to learn some level of independence, that's usually the age or under when the child is capable of now going and using the restroom on his or herself, and, you know, putting on their own clothes, changing their own clothes, even eating on their own and bathing themselves all the basic human needs, that a person has, that's when a child begins to grow, that develop that level of independence, where a child learns to start to take care of him or herself at that age and around the age of six. Not only

00:02:50--> 00:03:25

does the child know how to take care of him or herself, but a child no longer even tolerates the parents being intricately involved in that, you know, then it's kind of like, No, no, I'll put on my clothes myself, no, no, I want to eat it myself. So that's usually when a child is transitioning from being completely dependent upon the mother, for for the daily, you know, and the daily needs and the caretaking of the child to becoming more and more independent and being able to take care of his or her own needs on their own basically. And so that was the experience of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he's a four year old child. He's in the care of his mother, and

00:03:25--> 00:03:35

he's starting to learn some of these basic life skills. So he's learning some of these basic life skills at this point in time. Even his heart, rahimullah in in Sierra

00:03:36--> 00:03:39

has a very beautiful passage where he talks about

00:03:41--> 00:04:23

the prophets a lot is him going back to his mother? He says for conda Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam only he I mean, I've been to word that then the Prophet of Allah Salatu. Salam was, again with his mother. I'm an Ubuntu lab. What Jed do Abdulmutallab and of course as a father figure, the main person in his life was his grandfather on a fecal Atilla heater eila were heavily heat and of course he was under the protection of Allah in the safe garden to save keeping of Allah. Up to Laguna baton has an Allah subhanaw taala gave him a very beautiful and excellent upbringing, Lima Yuri to bohemian Kalamata he, because his child was meant for such great things later on a las

00:04:23--> 00:04:38

panatela provided the most excellent upbringing for this child for Lama Bella psittacine. Then when this child reached the age of six years old, to Wolfie at Omaha, Amina been to a hub, his mother Amina, passed away.

00:04:39--> 00:05:00

And so the next significant incident from the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is the passing of his mother at the age of six. So he comes back he receives the the love, the affection, the kindness, the generosity of any mother, that any mother any any, you know, healthy, sane mother that she would provide for her child.

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

The profits, Alison receives that, that that love, that affection that care from a mother. And one thing that should be stated here before we move on to talk about the death in the passing of Amina is that if you recall back to the quite a few sessions back otherwise you can go back and listen to the previous recordings. There's a session that specifically titled the profits parents, if you go back and listen to that session if you weren't here you don't recall, I gave a little bit of detail about Amina the mother of the Prophet alayhi salam, how she was, you know, she was, of course an amazing woman. But there were some very, very remarkable things about this woman. She was very well

00:05:42--> 00:06:31

known as being possibly the most intelligence and the most educated the most, you know, you know, highest, the some one of the most amazing women in Makkah in terms of her character, in terms of intelligence, in terms of ability and skill. She was a education. She was a very she was a woman, a very high regard. She was very well respected. She was beautiful, she was intelligent, she was smart, she was extremely well spoken, well mannered. She was, uh, she was very gifted at poetry. She was very well versed in the history of our people. So this was a very intelligent woman. So you have to add that in, you have to factor that in that the Prophet Allah subhanaw taala didn't provide the

00:06:31--> 00:07:13

profits a lot. He said, um, and you know, just an ordinary human being as a mother. But Allah subhanaw taala provided a very intelligent, a very cultured, a very sophisticated woman to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as a mother, which directly contributed to the Prophet polysomes upbringing, and something again, I have to keep holding myself back to not jump the gun. But when when once we go forward improve, we proceed forward through the upbringing and the tarbiyah of the prophets a lot is one of the key observations that we can make is that every person who was who had a major impact and a major influence on the profits of the lovely cinnamon in his life, particularly

00:07:13--> 00:07:45

during his formative years, it was a person of very high morals and ethics and very, very excellent behavior. They were all they were all noted for their great clock and their great conduct and their great behavior. That's one thing they were universally known for, from his mother Amina to his grandfather Abdulmutallab to his uncle Abu Talib, which I've again already spoken about in that session where, where I talked about the family, the extended family of the prophets, a lot of a sudden,

00:07:47--> 00:08:24

I addressed this already there. So there's nothing wrong with mentioning it here. But I've done looked at it was a leader of his tribe, he was a leader of his people, and the trend back then, and as the trend continues, so today, usually people who are in a position of leadership tend to be very, very wealthy, and affluent, even if they weren't wealthy before leadership, they inherit, they become wealthy through leadership, right or wrong. That's the way it works. And that's typically the system, even if this isn't somebody corrupt, who goes out there and directly steals the, the money of the people and the wealth of the of the people that he rules over, being in a position of

00:08:24--> 00:08:43

leadership still puts that person in a very good position to be able to earn money, because of the influence because of the connections because of the, you know, the network that that person develops. But what's very remarkable about Abdulmutallab and this is true for the previous leaders of

00:08:44--> 00:09:26

the previous leaders of today's many of them are very, very wealthy, and affluent, I've been looked on if dough was known to be literally broke at times, he was very poor, he was broke at times. And this was primarily due to the very very careful cautious conduct of optimal planning. He never wanted to take advantage of in any way shape or form of his influence of his connections and his network as a leader, because he used to say these connections of mine are only for leading the people and managing the affairs of the people. I will never take any type of personal financial gain out of these means a Bhutanese who inherited leadership from his father of the lieutenant, I will

00:09:26--> 00:09:59

tell him the uncle of the processor was the same way. I thought it was a very poor man. One of the things that again we'll talk about later in the cedaw but I'll mention it here quickly. I leave in a Vitaly ballito the Allahu anhu. We you might have heard before that either the loved one who was being raised in the house of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. That's why he ended up accepting Islam so early on at such a young age. That's why he was maybe the second or third or fourth person to accept Islam, because he says he used to live majority of the time in the house of the prophets a lot. He said him

00:10:00--> 00:10:36

One of the reasons for that, aside from mobile dollar being very elderly and not maybe being able to keep up with such with a small child anymore, and the prophet SAW sent him wanting to, you know, do something nice for Abu Talib like he had raised him. So he wants to raise the youngest of his children that he's too old to maybe raised on his own. Now, another reason that's mentioned in the books of history in the books of Sierra was Abu Talib, due to his very difficult financial circumstances, couldn't even afford to be raising a child anymore. So the Prophet says some was actually financially assisting a Buddha even raising earlier the loved one Whoa, that tells you

00:10:36--> 00:10:55

something about these people who raised the process and that they were people of very high morals and ethics. And that directly had an impact on the profits a lot he sent them. And so the mother of the process, um, similarly was an amazing, remarkable woman. And that definitely was divinely arranged by Allah subhanho wa Taala, so that the Prophet system would have the best of mothers.

00:10:57--> 00:11:41

Now to talk a little bit about the passing of the mother of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When the prophets a lot he said was about six years old, his mother, Amina decided to make a trip to a city at that time by the name of yathrib, about 300 kilometers from Mecca. Of course we know that this city of yesterday would later on become the blessing city of Medina, Medina to lonavala. All right, now, there's a little bit of difference. There's there's a couple of different narrations or mentions in the books of history. As to why Amina the mother of the prophets also decided to go and visit yesterday the city that would later become Medina, some of the historians mentioned well,

00:11:41--> 00:12:16

because the prophets a lot of these slums, second or third uncle's, if you will, used to live there outside of yesterday outside of Medina, in a small suburb of the city of yesterday by the name of guba, which later on would become very noteworthy because the first Masjid in this the history of the sumo would be built there at the place of Poupon mustard Koba, and I spoke about this earlier before, and the connection those family members of the prophets of Salaam, were basically the mother's side, basically the prophets, a lot of great grandmother's family, Abdullah

00:12:18--> 00:12:36

Abdullah talibs, mother's side of the family was from yesterday, I had spoken about this when talking about the fact the family, the extended family of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam that I've done with the lips father Hashem had was traveling on a business trip, and he had passed through.

00:12:37--> 00:13:16

He had passed through, yes, rip through Medina. And he had stopped there, too, you know, and he was in the outside of the city of yesterday outside of the city of Medina in a place called Cuba, he stopped there to get some rest and he ended up staying there. While there, he saw a woman, you know, that that he proposed to he met a woman there, and he, you know, fell in love with this woman he proposes to this woman and he ends up becoming married to her. Well, he gets married to her, he stays there for some time. And then he goes on to his journey, and he ends up dying in the Gaza in Philistine he dies in Gaza, and he doesn't return back. Well, what ends up happening with his wife

00:13:16--> 00:13:35

who lives there in Medina, in yesterday, outside of Yerevan, Cuba, she's pregnant with a child, that child is often motivated. Later on when that child is born and that child grows up. He's about seven years old. Then his uncles come and retrieve him from there and bring him back to America. So at the McDonald's mom side of the family was from Cuba. Yeah, from Medina.

00:13:36--> 00:14:16

So some of the historians say that the mother of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam wanted to go and visit Medina. So the prophets, a lot of them could meet some of these extended family members. However, there's nothing wrong with them. There's nothing that might have been a side benefit. But the majority of the scholars, majority of the historians, if you remember, we had talked about this, that the father of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had died in yesterday had died in Medina. What when his father of the Muslim had sent Abdullah there to work out at some type of a business deal to wholesale dates, to bring a lot of dates to basically work out a wholesale agreement for

00:14:16--> 00:15:00

dates to come from yesterday to Makkah. Abdullah went there he fell ill there and he ended up dying and passing away and being buried there in Medina. So the main motivation of the mother of the prophecies of Amina to go to travel 300 kilometers to travel all the way there to yesterday to the city that would later become Medina was to visit the grave of her husband, Abdullah. And so she's going on this trip. She has two other travel companions on this trip. One is of course her son, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was about six years old at the time, and the second travel companion the third of the three is a man, the woman by the name

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

Have Buttercup who was one of the milk mothers of the profits a lot. He said them to foster mothers of the profits a lot of the time. She had breastfed the prophets of Salaam, Baraka and she was known by the name of omo Ayman

00:15:12--> 00:15:52

she was the third person on this journey. They set out on this journey, and they travel up to the city of yesterday, later on, it would become Medina. And they ended up staying in they end up spending some time in Cuba with some of that extended family of the prophets a lot a solemn through from his grandfather side of the family from his father's side of the family. And they also stay some time in yesterday in Medina for to be able to go and visit the grave the berry the the place where Abdullah the father of the prophets of Salaam was buried. It said in the books of Sierra in the books of history that they stayed there for about a month, the duration of a month after staying

00:15:53--> 00:16:37

in something very interesting that I found that's mentioned by mentioned in the topic of even sad is that the Prophet of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam actually had some memory about that month that he spent there in the city of yesterday, which will later become Medina, later on much much later on during the Medina and period of prophethood. Meaning during his late during his mid and late 50s, early 60s. Even till that time the prophets also had some faint memories of that of spending that month dare during his childhood. It said that one time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was passing by some of the houses of Bonilla ID, which was a family from the tribe of cousin Raj, you

00:16:37--> 00:17:16

know, the unsought of Medina the Arabs of Medina, there were two primary tribes, Olson has Raj. So in the tribe of cousin Raj, there were some families by the name of benwell, ID and the prophets, a lot of them while walking around in Medina, one time he passed by some of the minassian some of the houses of vanilla D. And while he was passing by there, he stopped. And he remarked to the Sahaba, about the alignment around him, he said, Have unnecessarily Baitullah the method fee, you mean? He said he looked stopped at a house and he pointed at the house and he said, this is the same house where my mother and I stayed. When we had visited Medina back in my childhood, he was able to

00:17:16--> 00:17:26

remember the house. And then he looked and he saw like a pond, like a small little body of water, like a little pond. And he said that this is the same pond in which I learned how to swim.

00:17:28--> 00:17:56

And then he pointed out to an open like field, you know, just just like an open park or an open field. And he said, this is the same park in the same field, where I used to run around and play with the kids during that month that we had spent here in Medina, back during my childhood. So the prophets, a lot of them still had some strong memories of that month that he was able to spend there in the company of his mother visiting some family and some relatives and kind of getting to know a little bit about his own history.

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

Nevertheless, you know,

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

they stayed there for about a month. And then there's a very interesting story, which is mentioned about when they exactly decided to leave Medina and head yathrib excuse me at that time, and they decided to head back to Makkah there's a very fascinating, a very interesting story, which is mentioned in some of the books of history, urbanists hot mentions is a llama bayhealth. He mentioned this urban he Shan mentioned this awapuhi dimensions this many, many different scholars mentioned this incident and it says that

00:18:34--> 00:19:15

Karachi el Medina Amato, a Manuela who says, well, who said to him first facade Allah who call it omo. Amen. So it basically talks about how the mother of the prophet SAW some took the profits, a lot of them with a man to the city of Medina, the city of yesterday when the processing was about six years old. And while they were there, he also had the opportunity to visit some of his relatives, pilot almost a month for Geneva to mean Roger Lanham in Yehuda Medina. One day I was sitting with the child Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He was six years old, I was sitting with the child and two men from the Jews of Medina came up to us. They approached us for Cali RPG,

00:19:16--> 00:19:17

Elena ama, Nando de la.

00:19:18--> 00:19:55

They asked me where's that child, Ahmed? Why did they call the prophets of Salaam amod. Remember I had mentioned this in the session about the birth of the prophets a lot. He said them that the prophets of Salaam was named Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but his mother used to like calling him by the name of Ahmed. That was one of the names that was given to him. And his mother was more fond of the name, Ahmed. And so the prophets of the prophets a lot. He said his mother would often call him by the name Ahmed. So when he's visiting there in Medina, his mother is constantly calling him Ahmed. So the relatives in the family and the people in Medina who get to

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

know the prophets, a lot of some of this child. They primarily know him by the name of Allah.

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

So, the two Jewish men from the Jews of Medina, they come to a man and they say, Where is that? How am I bringing out we just we just want to see him. We just like to look at him. So she says, I brought up the child for Nevada, Nevada. So they looked at the child and then they turned him around. And they looked at his back. Bala huduma, the Sahaba. He, one of them said to the other, why did they look at the back remember we talked about this subprocessor them had this that that seal that mark of prophethood on his back, but I had to modify every one of them says to the other hand, EBU has illuma

00:20:40--> 00:21:24

This is the prophet of this oma this nation. He is the prophet of our times, will have he doubted his unity. And the really remarkable thing they say, is they say and this place, the city of Medina, yes. This is the place that he will migrate to. This is the place that he will come and he will set up, you know, his his headquarters, and this is the digital digital. This is the place that he will migrate to where so we'll say akuna, Bihar, Mina Locatelli was Serbia, morona, IBM, and they said, then there will be great battles, and there will be many prisoners that will be taken in that will all have to do and that will revolve around this child, basically referring to the Medina and period

00:21:24--> 00:22:00

because in Medina, and period was a time in which there were battles, and there were prisoners, and there were wars and there were martyrs, and there were people killed. It was more of the time of conflict and war and battle. And so they're making reference to that dilemma semi auto when the prophets Allison's mother was informed of this entire conversation. Harford she became very frightened as any mother would, one sort of had to be he and she immediately packed up the bags and packed up the profits a lot of them and told them to aim and get ready. One sort of had to be and they immediately got out of town. format. It's been a while we're here Raja.

00:22:02--> 00:22:41

Once they left the city of Medina, they didn't travel too far away from the city of Medina. They reached a small town by the name of Abuja. Now it's very possible that the mother of the prophets a lot of them already was not feeling well at this time when they left Medina when they left the airstrip, but she was forced to basically departed Medina maybe before she was ready to simply because of this incident, because of this entire conversation, she became very worried about the safety of her child. And again, it goes to show you what a mother will do for her the safety of her child, and they reach a place by the name of Abuja. It's a small town. It's a small village at that

00:22:41--> 00:22:42

time.

00:22:44--> 00:23:17

It's about 23 miles from a more well established, well known place today by the name of Georgia. It's about 23 miles from their small town by the name of Abuja, they reach there, and her mother became the Prophet's husband's mother, his mother became very, very ill. She was running a very, very high fever. And she was very, very ill very sick, and they were forced to stop here, or a man started to care for her. And it didn't take very long and the mother of the prophets of Salaam ended up passing away.

00:23:19--> 00:23:55

What Allahu taala olum what exactly were the cause? Or what were what was the cause? What was the exact medical condition or reason? Only Allah subhanaw taala knows. But one thing that we've talked about previously by talking about some of the, you know, forefathers of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, the great grandfather of the process of Hashem dies. While out on business in Gaza. The father of the process of dies in Yerevan, Medina while out on business, travel at that time, was very different than travelers today. And it was very, very common for people to die during these journeys. And during this travel because of illness or sickness, or infection and

00:23:55--> 00:24:03

virus or whatever other because of the difficult circumstances, the mother of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam passed away here at this place.

00:24:04--> 00:24:51

It said that, you know, almost a man, even though she herself was a woman, she basically buried the Prophet of the profits Allison's mother, at this point in time, embrace the child took the child in and she traveled, it's some narrations actually say that she returned back to Medina back to your trip with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they were there for some time for a few days. Until the grandfather of the prophets a lot of them Abdulmutallab read, you know, received a very tragic news about his daughter in law. The prophets a lot of times mother Amina passing away and then Abdul muttalib himself came to Medina to yathrib and then brought the prophets Allah him back

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

home. Some narration say that no, omo a man herself, took it upon herself and she came back to Makkah with the prophets. A lot of them are

00:25:00--> 00:25:43

Her own and brought the profits loves him back to the safety of McCain back to the safety of his grandfather and his family. You know, the passing of anyone's mother is a very, very sad thing. It's a tragedy. And it's something that's very, very sad. And it's very tragic. And it's very difficult, let alone a six year old child who doesn't have a father. And so you can imagine how difficult that must have been. But what we don't know a lot about we don't have any direct narrations telling us about maybe the the prophet SAW sent him as a child, and how difficult it was for him and how he must have cried and, you know, sought you know, some type of love and affection with more a man and

00:25:43--> 00:26:19

what exactly transpired with the system at that time. But we do have narrations telling us about the memory that the prophets a lot of them had of his mother. And how sad that memory was for the prophets a lot. He said that he remembered faintly what his mother was like, and he remembered his mother, and he remembered losing his mother. And how many many years later, till the till his late 50s and his early 60s tilled the time shortly before his passing in his death, how that was a very difficult memory for the prophets, Allah lohani who send them

00:26:20--> 00:26:22

the our narrations which talk about

00:26:23--> 00:26:33

that one time the prophets the Sahaba the alarm on whom they say that we were with the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we went out to a place by the name of what done

00:26:34--> 00:26:36

which was not too far from that place of

00:26:37--> 00:27:13

the profits. A lot of them said to us mechanicum Hata to come. I want you to stay here until I come back. Because whenever the process on would travel, whenever he would kind of go somewhere, he would, you know, it was the habit at that time, you would ask somebody to join him or accompany him for safety. You know, you got to have somebody with you kind of have like your your your travel buddy. And to make sure you're never on your own, somebody always knows where you're at. You have some type of backup, you know, again, they're traveling out in the wilderness in the middle of the desert. But the process of obviously wanted some privacy. So he said mechanicum hotta to come. I

00:27:13--> 00:27:42

don't want anyone to freak out. I don't want anyone to come looking for me. Stay here sit here until I come back to you. They say from Tanaka the process and left through Medina was so clean. And then the profits a lot of him came back to us. And it seemed like he was sick. He looked ill he looked sick, like his face. And one other narration says what was he he looked heavy, like heavy hearted. He looked like he was very, very deeply saddened by something.

00:27:44--> 00:28:05

And then the profits Alliance him explain to us and he said in the day to publish only Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said that I went to the grave of the mother of Muhammad Sallallahu aneesa. So he very affectionately refers to her as a mother of Muhammad, meaning my mother for altura BIA shefa Jani la familia Neha.

00:28:06--> 00:28:45

And in the process of have mentioned something this particular narration now, the narration This is mentioned by Mr. Muhammad in his Muslim, the narrations I'm going to mention some of these are used as evidence by those people who basically say that the parents of the Bible scholars who conclude that the parents or the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, salaam, were not believers. But as I mentioned in that session on the parents of the prophets a lot he selam. My opinion in this matter, is the same ruling that is given to us by the classical scholars. And that is the appeal, that is basically the position that all of us need to have. And that is, Allah knows best. It's not our business, it's

00:28:45--> 00:29:19

not our place, we don't have to worry about it, we won't be asked about in our graves, we won't be asked about on the Day of Judgment. It shouldn't matter to any of us. Scholars have discussed it for the sake of scholarship. And we leave it at that. And if somebody reaches that point, in their own personal study, they reach it, they reach that point in scholarship, where they're ready to read these classical texts of the scholars and their scholarly discussions, then at that point in time, that person is more than welcome to go and read those texts and read those positions in those opinions. But nevertheless, our understanding should be a last panel with Allah knows best. We don't

00:29:19--> 00:29:52

have to worry about it, we won't be asked about it. Nevertheless, the narration says, then the prophets Allah Islam says, I went to go visit the grave of my mother, I asked Allah subhanaw taala to give me intercession on her behalf and he did not provide that to me last month, I refuse that. And then the prophets Allah says, we're in equal to no hate to comma and zero to billboard, I used to tell you not to visit the graves. And this is a very common practice in legislation during the life of the prophets a lot. He said that maybe sometimes when there was a bad habit

00:29:54--> 00:30:00

that the people of that time were, you know, had a very difficult time leaving and abandoned and they were very addicted.

00:30:00--> 00:30:36

Something, they they had a very bad habit in regards to something, then initially would be made completely forbidden. This was the case, not just in terms of alcohol alcohol was left how long. But the Arabs of that time, what they used to have was, they used to have special containers, what they would do is they would take different types of vegetables like squash, or they would take fruits like melons. And what they would do is they would hollow them out. And they would take grease like animal fat, and they would rub it on the inside of it. And then they would leave it out in the desert sun in the heat for days and days and days, until it would completely harden. And that grease

00:30:36--> 00:31:13

would become completely solidified, and would literally form like a seal on the inside of that fruit or the inside of that vegetable. And then what they would do is they would put their alcohol inside of there and plug it and it would keep the alcohol cool, and he would keep it fresh. All right, not only that, but then they would also use it for milk, they would also use it for water, they would also use it for you know juices that they would make. So it wasn't primarily used for alcohol and it would be used for other things. But that would, that would that's what it mostly was used for. It was identified primarily with alcohol, but it could be used for milk or water or anything else like

00:31:13--> 00:31:23

that. When alcohol was first made haraam, the prophet of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam also made the use of any of those types of containers at all.

00:31:25--> 00:32:01

Meaning even if you want to put milk in it, put milk in something else can't put it in this, you want to put water into water and something else can put in that it was made hot on why so that they would become completely distanced, completely cutting it off, to not leave any type of memory to not leave any type of association with that element with that thing with that act, that sin. And then when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam saw that the Sahaba had become disciplined, and then become strong enough to where alcohol was no longer something that was enticing to them, or they had become completely they had worked it out of their system, basically, then the prophets have said, okay, by

00:32:01--> 00:32:37

the way, you can go back to using those containers for milk or juice or water or whatever else you want to use it for, for permissible things, the same thing we find in terms of dogs. Alright, some scholars do argue the authenticity of the narration. But there is a narration in this in another Buddhahood, where initially for some time, the prophets a lot of them had forbidden any type of associated with dogs. And even so much so that there's a narration which talks about how the prophets a lot of them had told them to kill dogs, even for some people, for some tribes, but that was only to get it out of their system so that they would develop some type of discipline, some type

00:32:37--> 00:33:09

of structure in terms of the fic of interacting with these animals, knowing how to live with these animals with certain limits and boundaries. And then the process of Of course, told them no, these are animals, these are creation of Allah don't harm these animals. Right? same issue applies in terms of graves, initially, to distance them from any type of idol worshipping and grave worshipping the Prophet of Allah Salaam and initially forbidding them from even visiting graves. You cannot visit graves hut, I'm not allowed.

00:33:10--> 00:33:52

But then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he saw that these people have become solid in their heat, they had become secure in their Eman. Then at that point in time, the prophet of Allah salatu salam says, Come to no hate to come and say hello to you. So when he visited the grave, his mother, he comes back and he says, I used to forbid you from visiting the graves from visiting graves. I laugh as ooh Ha. Go ahead and visit them now. And then the prophet SAW Selim also you know the other things that I mentioned when he took them on to human about a badass a young for kulu. I used to tell you not to eat the meat of an animal that you have sacrificed after three days. But now

00:33:52--> 00:34:15

you can one Sakuma but Allah come and you can hold on to it if if it seems okay to you, when a hate took them on how to get a Shiva, we have the lower area for Ashley boo, boo, FEMA bodalla, calm. I used to tell you not to drink these things in these types of containers anymore. Now you can drink in these containers, those things that are appropriate for you.

00:34:16--> 00:34:52

But there are other narrations about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam visiting the grave of his mother. That shows you the sadness of the prophets a lot of time at that memory. One narration in Albay hupy in the center of your mom will be happy. Excuse me in his book a delay in it actually mentions that the prophets a lot he said them some. So he told some of the companions, majority of them sit here and wait for me. But there were some Sahaba there were some companions who are with the prophets, a lot of them, they go to a grave. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam sits down for some time. And then the process begins to cry.

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

He begins he begins to cry. Some of the narrations actually say about the process of crying

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

thermadata Anna Hebrew Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam avakian the process from started to cry so much that he started to he he became choked up while crying.

00:35:12--> 00:35:19

He got choked up while crying that he literally started to lose his breath while crying. He audibly began to cry.

00:35:20--> 00:35:59

Like they could hear him crying he was he was getting choked up while crying, and he audibly loudly cried like in the sense where he couldn't hold his breath anymore. That that's how sad in the profits allottee someone's and it says that the process of sat there and cried for so long and so profusely cried tears and choking up losing his breath. That the Sahaba Radhika llama animal were sitting around him. They said, We began to cry. Just by looking at the process of crying how we'd never seen him cry like this before. We had never seen him cry like this before. And it was so sad watching him sit there at that grave and cry that all of us began to cry

00:36:01--> 00:36:33

so much Oh, that's Oh my god, a loved one who got up and placed an armor on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comforted him. And then asked the prophets a lot. He said, Well, messenger of Allah. We've sat here and listened to you cry. We've watched you cry. What makes you cry a messenger of Allah. Because you're crying is so sad. It's so painful. The way you're crying, that it's made us cry. What makes you cry a messenger of Allah. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that

00:36:34--> 00:36:39

in the lebra la de la Mooney una de Pablo amin up into a hub

00:36:40--> 00:36:48

that is grave that you sit me that you see me sitting here crying yet. And making dua and asking Allah subhana wa tada

00:36:49--> 00:36:52

that this is the grave of my mother. I'm and I've been to lab.

00:36:53--> 00:36:57

And so we see that literally 50 years later.

00:36:58--> 00:37:18

50 years later, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam revisits the grave of his mother 50 years later, the process of is so moved by that memory, so moved by those emotions, that just visiting her grave, the process of sits there and cries and cries and cries profusely, to the point where he loses his breath

00:37:19--> 00:37:22

very seriously, he weeps he cries.

00:37:23--> 00:37:27

And this session today while even preparing for it this week,

00:37:28--> 00:37:46

I felt that, Aside from the obvious sadness that we feel, and we see the sadness of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, while visiting the grave of his mother, I feel that this session is really important, because it shows us the human side of the Prophet salallahu alaihe, Salam.

00:37:48--> 00:37:49

This was a child who had lost his mother.

00:37:51--> 00:37:54

And his condition was like any other child that would have lost his mother.

00:37:56--> 00:37:58

And later on, once he received Prophethood,

00:38:00--> 00:38:08

a decade 15 years later, after becoming a prophet, the Messenger of God, after visiting on this route with me, Raj,

00:38:09--> 00:38:12

for ascending above the seven heavens,

00:38:13--> 00:38:20

after receiving divine revelation, after being the vessel of miracle after miracle morning, Jesus, after more jeiza

00:38:22--> 00:38:25

after accomplishing and doing so much.

00:38:26--> 00:38:36

You know, and this man is literally a superhero in our eyes. And he's nothing short of what we would imagine to be a superhero. But it doesn't change the fact that he's still a human being.

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

And he still has emotions, and he still has a heart

00:38:41--> 00:38:47

that 50 years later, he's a messenger of God. He's a prophet of Allah.

00:38:49--> 00:38:55

When this man visits his mother's grave, 50 years later, he sits there and he cries his eyes out.

00:38:57--> 00:39:08

And he's reminded of this childhood, and that tragedy from his childhood, when he lost his beloved mother. And he sits there as a 50 plus year old man, and sits at the grave of his mother and he cries.

00:39:10--> 00:39:14

And it shows you the humanity, the human side of the Messenger of Allah, Allah de Sena.

00:39:16--> 00:39:49

And it's something very important that we have to realize we have to understand and I'll give you two reasons why. Number one, a lot of times we have trouble connecting with the Messenger of Allah Salah, the center, and we have trouble relating to the Prophet of Allah ceylonese Center. Because as amazing as he was, and when we talk about how amazing that he was, he can sometimes Unfortunately, because of our own shortsightedness, because of our own shortcomings, he can seem, you know, unrelatable to us, when either we're not and he's the most relatable. He's absolutely relatable, but he can seem unrelatable to us.

00:39:51--> 00:40:00

right because of we don't realize or we don't emphasize the human side of the prophets a lot. So emphasizing the humanity the human side of the Prophet

00:40:00--> 00:40:16

A lot of them, this this emotional side of the profits, a lot of them where he sits at the grave of his mother and he cried his eyes out. And he sits there and he weeps. And he cries, it doesn't take anything away from the process of somebody, it only adds to the seat on it adds to the profits.

00:40:17--> 00:40:19

Because it allows us to connect with them better.

00:40:20--> 00:40:37

And then that's the second point that I wanted to make here. Is that, it there's a very valuable lesson in this for us, that when we become believers, and when we become you know, we work for the dean, and we carry the message of this Diem.

00:40:38--> 00:40:46

We're never supposed to lose our human side. Whenever you're supposed to lose that humanity. We're never supposed to lose our emotions. Absolutely not.

00:40:48--> 00:40:51

Because the Messenger of Allah ceylonese have never allowed himself to lose it.

00:40:52--> 00:40:56

He never allowed himself to become above and beyond emotions, there's no room for emotions.

00:40:58--> 00:41:12

You're the messenger and the prophet of God. You have to deliver the message. You don't you don't have time to sit around and cry like a woman. You don't have time to sit down and sit around and cry like a little baby at the grave of your mother. What's wrong with you? You're the Messenger of God.

00:41:13--> 00:41:18

Absolutely not. He goes in, he sits at the grave of his mother and he cries,

00:41:20--> 00:41:22

cries profusely, he cries.

00:41:23--> 00:41:47

A loss panda never asked him to give that up. And the process of never quit that you remained human. He stayed in touch with these emotions. He was emotionally still connected to his family. And we have to also learn that lesson, becoming spiritual becoming moutai. Becoming pious becoming righteous doesn't mean that you become heartless or you rise above these emotions.

00:41:48--> 00:42:02

That when somebody dies or somebody passes away, they Yes, there are some etiquettes about what some things we do. And some things we don't do. Don't get me wrong. But at the same time, if you're saddened by that, or what's wrong with you, you don't have sober you don't have Taqwa you don't have to occur.

00:42:03--> 00:42:09

Why are you sad? Why are you crying? Absolutely not. The person who sits at the grave of his mother and he cries.

00:42:11--> 00:42:13

And he weeps. And he's saddened.

00:42:14--> 00:42:22

And so, the prophet of getting back to the actual timeline in which we're speaking, so the prophet SAW Selim is six years old.

00:42:24--> 00:42:37

And he loses his mother. She dies out there. No one else is around. Just the mother of the prophets have said, I'm the Prophet of Allah somalisa them, and this woman who would become a mother figure to him or a man,

00:42:38--> 00:42:45

the slave owned by the mother of the process and Buttercup, amen. rhodiola, Juana and in that,

00:42:46--> 00:43:02

you know, isolation, out in the middle of nowhere, the mother of the process and breathe, it's her last. And the Prophet of Allah salatu salam loses his only parent, his mother, his father had died before he was born. And now he loses his mother.

00:43:03--> 00:43:08

You can imagine what that must have been like for that child. At that point in time. According to the different

00:43:09--> 00:43:29

narrations from the books of Sierra history. Either. A man picks up this child and brings him home to Makkah to his grandfather or the grandfather of the process, I'm actually travels out and retrieves the child, animal a man and brings them back home. In either case, the prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam is returned back home

00:43:30--> 00:43:36

to Mecca. And there he continues to live on with his tribe with his family but who Hashem is

00:43:37--> 00:44:16

in the care of his grandfather, Abdul muttalib. And from next week on inshallah, we'll talk about the next two years of the life of the prophet to listen from the age of six to eight, the time that he spent in the care of his grandfather, Abdul muttalib. May Allah subhanaw taala give us the proper understanding of the life of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, may Allah subhanaw taala allow us to truly appreciate the experiences, the difficulty, the tragedy, and the all the difficulty that the prophets allowing some endure throughout his life. And may Allah subhanaw taala give us a proper appreciation for it and allow us to grow in our love for the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa

00:44:16--> 00:44:24
