00:00:19--> 00:00:27

shala continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the prophetic biography

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

we left off last time

00:00:36--> 00:00:47

talking about the passing the death of the mother of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and how difficult that was for him and the circumstances surrounding her passing.

00:00:49--> 00:00:53

The Prophet of Allah salallahu alayhi wa sallam was six years of age when his mother passed away.

00:00:54--> 00:01:10

Now, in the end of last week's session in the aftermath of the passing of his mother, we talked about how there are two narrations, there are two incidents related as to what happened in the aftermath.

00:01:11--> 00:01:47

What is more popularly mentioned in the books of Sierra is the fact that omo Ayman the foster mother of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who is traveling along with them, she actually brought the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam the rest of the way because his mother passed away on the way from Mecca to Medina. So, a man brought the Prophet of Allah salallahu alayhi wasallam, the six year old child who had just lost his mother, his only surviving parents, she brought him the rest of the way to Makkah, and brought him to the safety and the care of his grandfather, Abdul muttalib. Another

00:01:48--> 00:02:28

incident that's related or another version that is related in some of the books of Sierra is the fact that a man since they had not gotten too far out of Medina, or more a man actually goes back to Medina because the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam has some family there in Medina, and takes him back there to the safety of at least his uncles and whatnot. And then they're there for a number of days until the Abdulmutallab receives the news that you know, your your daughter in law has passed away so your grandson is there by himself. And then I've the motive actually travels to Medina to retrieve their profits allowed him to bring him back home. Regardless of the exact scenario. The

00:02:28--> 00:02:38

profit or loss of Luddism comes now at the age of six, he both of his parents have passed and now he is in the care of his grandfather. I've done looked on him.

00:02:40--> 00:03:15

But now talking about his time that he spent with his grandfather, Abdulmutallab, you know, something very interesting, as a just something I was reflecting on. You know, we're most of the time people are aware of the fact Muslims generally are aware of the fact that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, salaam never knew his father, his father passed away before he was born, and his mother passed away at the age of six. And that was of course a test and a trial from Allah subhanaw taala as a means of his tarbiyah his upbringing and allows panatela you know, by means of these experiences, instilled certain things within the prophets a lot he said I'm, which would be

00:03:15--> 00:03:51

instrumental in him serving as the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. At the same time, though Allah subhanho wa Taala as part of his Serbia, Allah subhanaw taala never deprived him of the presence of a loving, caring individual, somebody who would care for him, somebody that would take care of him, because whenever we talk about whoever it was, that was caring for the profits of lobbyism, at that particular point in time, whether it was Halima Saudia, whether it was his mother, whether it was his grandfather, and then afterwards, I will tell him, you always find one thing very consistently that whoever it is, that is taking care of the process, and that is the guardian of the

00:03:51--> 00:04:32

profits. A lot of the cinema at that time, is a very loving, caring individual is an extremely gentle human being. And not only that, but the person that is the most important to them in their entire lives, while they are in charge of the process of them is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam. So regardless of who it was, the whoever was the guardian of the process of their world would revolve around this child, and that child would instantly become the most important part of that person's life. And so unless parents Allah Wilde performed the tarbiyah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam by taking away his parents early on, at the same time, to not emotionally deprived

00:04:32--> 00:04:59

the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, and that's why the Prophet of Allah Salaam was such a beacon of love and kindness and gentleness. And that's why the Prophet has come through his own personal relationships. He was the best husband ever he was he showed us what it meant to be affectionate with our wives by through his own example, and the process of him was the best parents ever. He showed us what proper parenting was. The processing was the most exemplary grandfather ever, and he showed us what affection and love

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

Have a grandparent should show towards their grandchildren. And so part of the profits a lot isms upbringing was at the same time. So always have a loving, caring individual who would be there for the profits allottee someone was there to take care of him. So at this particular point in time at the age of six, it was the grandfather of the prophets, a lot of them, Abdulmutallab. One of the things I mentioned a couple of sessions ago. Another interesting observation about everyone who was an influence upon the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the fact that they were always people, a very high character, very noble morals and ethics. All right, it was always a remarkable

00:05:41--> 00:06:17

individual, whether it was the mother of the process of Amina or Halima Saudia, and then in, then the mother of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And now in this case, I've been with him. We've talked about very early on in some of the previous recordings, if you'd like to go back to them, where it talks about the extended family in the foot parents and the grandparents of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. in that session, I described the muttalib and talked about him with the books of history tell us about him. And he was a very remarkable individual. This is a man who was very devout. He was a man of deep spiritual convictions. And of course, there's, there's a whole discussion there as

00:06:17--> 00:06:57

to what his exact, you know, beliefs were, regardless of what his beliefs were, this is a man of great conviction. This was a deeply spiritual man. This was a man who was very moral, very ethical, very noble and very upright. And he was a very honest man, he was a very brave and courageous man, he walks up to abraha, the man who's arrived there, in some narrations, it says, with an army of 10s of 1000s of soldiers, and 11, or 13, elephants, right to literally destroy his entire city. And he just walks up to this man and just says, you know, some of your some of your men stole my camels, I'd like to come back and speak to him very, frankly, very openly, very honestly. So this was a very

00:06:57--> 00:07:04

remarkable individual. And so this is another person who had an influence and an impact upon the prophets allottee, some as a child.

00:07:05--> 00:07:46

So some of the generations the describe of the mechanic and how Abdulmutallab the grandfather, and this is a man who still has his own children who are alive. This is a man who probably has dozens of grandchildren of his own. And this is a man who is a leader of all of Quraysh not just his family, his extended family, but who Hashem, but he's a leader of all the families. He's the leader of Croatia itself. So he sits at the head of the most powerful central city in Arabia. So by some accounts, and people actually, the books of history talk about this, that many people in Arabia, especially the ages, the internal region of the Arabian Peninsula, people used to refer to Abdul

00:07:46--> 00:08:28

muttalib as the most powerful man in Arabia. He was the most influential, most powerful, most revered man and all of Arabia. So to put it simply, this is this is a very important person who had a lot on his plate. He had hundreds of people who needed his time who required his time and this was a very busy man. In spite of all of this, the books of history the Sierra have been a sham, the Sierra Club in his heart and work at and other great scholars, classical scholars have seen all the talk about how Abdulmutallab took care of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that this orphan grandchild of his six year old child, he didn't just hire a maid to take care of him. He didn't just

00:08:28--> 00:08:40

buy another slave woman that here just look after him run around after him. Just make sure he doesn't get in my way. He didn't go and dump him at home tell his wife or his one of his daughters. Listen, you got to take care of him from now on, but how we personally took care of him.

00:08:42--> 00:08:43

It talks about him that

00:08:46--> 00:08:56

fella to fiets Amina beans, Wahab Cabo de la gente de Monterrey, Guadalajara. kanehara cotton la murica Allah Allah de.

00:08:57--> 00:09:39

It says that after the mother of the process of Amina died passed away, Abdulmutallab took on took guardianship of the child, and he brought him close to him and near him, he embraced him and he was more gentle and more kind and generous with him than he was even with his own children. What kind of Yukari boohooman who are using he were to follow Allah He is a Halawa either nama and Abdulmutallab would always look for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he always wanted him close to him, you would always draw him near to him, he would always look for him at all times, he wouldn't go to sleep until he checked on him like a parent does with the child. Like a parent goes before they go

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

to sleep before they eat, they go and they check on the child. Right? I've been lucky enough to do that with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then it actually describes something about the muttalib. Since the metallic was this big, powerful, important individual. Can I use all the other metallic erosion fields in Canada

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

So during the daytime, on the side of the Kaaba, where there would be a shade cast by the Kaaba itself, there was a little mattress, alright there was there was almost like a bit of there was a cushion, alright that would be placed there next to the Kaaba for Abdulmutallab to sit on and it would be put placed on the side where the shade would fall from the cabin so that he'd be in the shade of the Kaaba. And the thing that he would lean against was the Kaaba itself. So he would lean against the garba sitting against the Kaaba under the shade of the cabin, he would sit there and he would read people and meet people and welcome people and talk to people. And that's where people

00:10:38--> 00:10:57

could come and find him that was kind of the seat, the throne the court of Abdulmutallab, and this was a special seat that was reserved for him. Nobody would dare ever sit on that seat. And that cushion would stay there all the time. And nobody would dare sit on it because they knew this is Rob didn't want to live comes in sits. Alright, right. So he had that respect in that regard.

00:10:59--> 00:11:38

Well can do Blue Yeti Suna, hola Hiroshi Dalek, and immediately around that little cushion, that seat that was specially placed for him, his sons would come and sit around there. And they were kind of sit close to him, but they would sit around that had to lie and they would go and sit there from before until the metallic himself would then come out and then he would get seated on the seat. Like as you swallow, he hadn't even he forget about anybody else. Even his own children would not dare sit on that seat, because he was specially reserved for optimal cleaning. A man of great regarding great respect each lavender who out of respect for him. But then at the same time, we've been his

00:11:38--> 00:12:16

Hawk rights for Canada Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yachty, the process of them would come six year old child he would come? Well, we'll hold on when Jeff Ron and describes the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that when he was a boy, when he was a child, he was kind of a chubby child, he was kind of a chubby kid. And so he was like this six year old, chubby little kid, and he would come home early, and he would come and sit right smack dab in the middle of that seat. Alright, so just like kids tend to do, you would come in you sit down right in the middle of that seat. All right, you know, kids kind of have those tendencies. And they usually do that when they know they can get

00:12:16--> 00:12:53

away with it. Right like at my house. For my father when, when years for he actually as a president, we bought like a recliner, like a really nice recliner. So he can sit and relax and chill on it. And, and he was able to utilize it until my daughter came along. And now my daughter comes and she sits on it and he's sitting on it, she makes him get up and then she sits on it. And she doesn't even allow him to sit on it anymore. So kids do that. And they usually do it out of affection. They do it out of love. And they know they do it when they know they can get away with it. So the process of this chubby six year old kid, he would run in and he would come and go and sit down on that seat

00:12:53--> 00:13:01

for who the who are mama who knew who his uncles would come and they would grab him and pick them up and move them from there. No, no, no. What are you doing?

00:13:03--> 00:13:08

Right. So they would grab them and they pull them off the seat like don't get they're not supposed to sit there for

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

either a dolly coming home that evening.

00:13:14--> 00:13:19

When I've done metallic would see them moving the process of simplicity which I'll leave my son alone.

00:13:20--> 00:13:45

Leave my boy alone. Don't mess with him. Leave him let him sit there. And then he would actually remark he would say for logging in Allah hula Shannon. You say I swear by God, there's something special about him. He's a boy that's meant for great things. Let them be somewhat utility. So who am I who Allah Pharaoh Shana Abdulmutallab would come and sit and pick up the processor and sit him in his own lap.

00:13:46--> 00:13:57

But he would not move him completely. He would sit and put him in his lap. William sahoo bahuvida de and he would sit the profits allowed him in his lab, and then you would rub his back with his hand.

00:13:59--> 00:14:20

He'd rubbed his the back of the profits a lot. He said I'm with his hand way as soon well, who am I Yahoo? Yes, now. And then it describes the Mutallab that he would literally sit there and just stare at the profits a lot. He said, I'm watching him Do whatever you do, and he would just have a smile on his face. You don't want a child just captures your heart. There's nothing more beautiful in this world than that then that child to you.

00:14:21--> 00:14:24

You know, you just sit there and you just watched a child.

00:14:26--> 00:14:54

And he does. It doesn't matter how you know useless of a thing. That's how they're doing how meaningless of an activity the child is engaging in. You just sit there and you just stare I mean, you just have this goofy smile on your face the whole time. Just because there's nothing more beautiful more wonderful than it didn't show that you've ever seen in this world is the most magnificent thing you've ever seen. I've done literally would come and just rub the back of the process and cinnamon is up and you just sit there and you just stare at him watching playing and doing things and just smile the entire time and just stare at him.

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

And this is how I took care of the profits in the long run. He said I'm and how much he

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

Loved the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:15:04--> 00:15:31

He would even say sometimes when when the prophet SAW Selim would come and sit down on the cushion, and the uncles or the other people would come and try to move the child would try to move the Prophet of Allah Salaam. And from the cushion, the, the metallic, when he would reprimand them, he would say that evening, he would say leave my boy, leave him alone, don't don't mess with him. And then he would actually say in the hula, you need to milk and he will actually say that he looks like a king. Let them sit there, he looks like a king.

00:15:32--> 00:15:41

You know. So that's the type of love that he had for the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It there's a very interesting narration

00:15:42--> 00:16:18

that talks about one of the very interesting, you know, incidents. This is something that as you progress through the seat of the person we've talked about before in terms of what his mother experienced when she was pregnant with him, what she experienced when she gave birth to him some of the incidents that occurred at the time of the birth of the prophets a lot. He said on that one conversation that you know what happened with him when he was in the care of Halima Sadie at the splitting of the chest, the conversation that his mother had with a couple of Jewish men in Medina and yesterday, and that's why she left from there. So similarly, these types of incidents, little

00:16:18--> 00:16:56

little incidents will continue to occur throughout the life of the process him until he grows older. And so one time a man from Bhanu, moody ledge, came to Makkah. And when it came to McCain, he came to visit often look to live, of course, you know, us an important man, you go to you go and you visit him, you're in his house, you're in his town in his hood. And so he came to visit Abdulmutallab. And while he's visiting Abdulmutallab, he's staring at the profits of some of the entire time because again, the multilib standard operating procedure is, if I'm sitting here talking to people, the child is here in my lab. And so the process is in the lab, and the man is staring at,

00:16:57--> 00:17:03

you know, the profitsystem the entire time. And then he says to the muttalib, take care of this child,

00:17:04--> 00:17:08

take care of this child, be careful with the child. And he says because

00:17:10--> 00:17:24

when I see him and the way he walks in the way he carries himself, the way he conducts himself, you can tell he's going to be somebody very important. He's meant for great things. This is a child that that is meant for greatness. So be very careful with this child.

00:17:25--> 00:17:39

Abdulmutallab when he heard this, you know, he immediately went to he called for the most responsible the most trusted of his sons, Abu Talib. He called him and he said that, listen to what they're saying.

00:17:40--> 00:17:49

Listen to what this man has to say about your nephew. And then Abdulmutallab had the man say the same thing to obatala.

00:17:50--> 00:17:56

And then he told us to tell him that I want you to take care of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.

00:17:57--> 00:18:31

Look, I might not be around forever. And there are actually some narrations had mentioned this earlier, when we talked in more detail, like a biography of the muttalib. We had talked about this, that some books of his history actually mentioned, the metallic lift to be 150 years old. He was very, very old. And so it was a very, very old man. So he said, Look, I'm not going to live forever. All right, and I and this child, we need to take care of him. There's something special about this child. So he tells a Bhutanese, I want you to look out for him. And it will be your responsibility after me to take care of this child. I will totally it goes to

00:18:33--> 00:19:13

the foster mother of the Prophet tell us I'm the woman by the name of Baraka. And he says yeah, Baraka latifolium Ebony. He says, Listen, this the son of mine, so even Abu Talib refers that person, the son of mine, my child, right, he says that, don't ever be neglectful of him. Don't ever look away from him. Make sure you always pay attention to him, and you always take care of him. And he says that, and then I will tell him says something very interesting. He says, I've been keeping an eye on him because obviously I will taalib cared deeply about the process. I mean, he said my father, I've demoted. Our leader. He's told me to specially put me in charge of looking after him.

00:19:13--> 00:19:41

So I've been keeping an eye on him. And I saw this nephew of mine, Muhammad, I saw him playing with the other boys. And while they were playing with the other boys that kind of went to the outskirts of the neighborhood of the city of Mecca, they were playing kind of on the edges of the town. And I went out there to check on them. And while they were while I was watching them, I saw some people traveling by and they were some of the afternoon kita

00:19:42--> 00:20:00

right, they were Christians or Jews, and as they were traveling by and they were kind of stopped. They they were in camp there. And they were watching also the children play and they were watching very closely and intently they were watching Muhammad Sallallahu on a Sunday or watching our nephew here, and he said that he is a Muna and he became

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

mean to be you have illuma.

00:20:03--> 00:20:07

And I heard them talking. And they think that this nephew of mine,

00:20:09--> 00:20:16

they assumed they think this nephew of mine is then a B of this oma. He is the prophet to come.

00:20:17--> 00:20:57

And so whether that's true, if that is true, then he's a child man for great things, we need to take care of him. And regardless of whether it's true or not, a lot of people will be paying a lot of very special attention to this child. Some might mean him good, and some might have some ill will towards him. We have to be diligent all the time, and we have to take care of the child all the time. And Subhanallah it goes on to say, what kind of Abdulmutallab Lai aku tarmin la akula la Joby evening of the mahtani when he would sit down to eat food, he wouldn't even need food, he would say Where's Mohammed? No, not eating. And you can imagine a man of that stature, a man of such

00:20:57--> 00:21:31

importance. You know, everybody kind of serves him and puts food down in front of him and usually ends up eating food with a lot of very other important people. And so everybody serving Him and wanting to take care of him, make sure he eats properly and everything's to his liking and everything. And he would literally sit there and disappoint people you wouldn't even start even said Where's Mohammed? How am I supposed to eat? How do I know that Mohammed ate or not? What not? I'm not eating food. Where's Muhammad? Where's my son? Bring me my boy. I need to find out if he ate first. He literally would not even eat food until the prophets a lot of them he knew for a fact that

00:21:31--> 00:22:03

the profits a lot he somebody eaten for you, Tabby lay and he sometimes would not literally eat food, even if they would tell him No. father or grandfather or Yeah, I've done with Olivia Amina our leader. He's eaten already. We've checked we made sure he's taken up. I need to see him. And they would have to bring the profits of lobbyists and the six seven year old child they would have to bring him to the grandfather and grandfather will look at him say Tom is everything okay? Did you eat food? Are you sure Is everything all right? And then and only then would have been looked at a beat? That's how much he loved and that's how much he took care of the Prophet of Allah sallallahu

00:22:03--> 00:22:04

alayhi wa sallam.

00:22:06--> 00:22:37

And it said that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his heart writes for Lama Bella Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I mean halakhah diwata muttalib been Hashem. That finally when the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reached the age of eight. So he spent about two years under the care of his grandfather out when you reach the age of eight, then his grandfather ultimately passed away. And it actually again because he was such an old man, and he was probably experiencing illness as it was, before he passed away.

00:22:38--> 00:22:48

He called all of his family together, especially his sons and his daughters. So these were all the uncles in the audience of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:22:49--> 00:22:50


00:22:51--> 00:23:30

so all of them gathered together, and they were all sitting there and they were all sad and the inheritance was being distributed and special wills were being made out for special people and everything was being done. And while they gathered there, the profit of the Mattel about that time spoke about the profits a lot he some as well, and he emphasized the importance of taking care of this child upon all of his family members, but particularly he singled out Abu Talib, while old saw about Tali behave the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he thought he summed up the matter of the Metallica defendable hygiene. And then finally he lastly put Abu Talib in charge of

00:23:30--> 00:24:09

the prophets, Allah, DCM and he said, My special dying request to you. My last request is Abu Talib, my dear son, please take care of my grandchild take care of this grandson of mine, Muhammad, and it is your responsibility to always take care of him and to always be diligent in caring for him. And then finally he passed away and he was buried in the graveyard at hygiene. And it also mentioned while talking about the passing of Abdulmutallab, because he gave Abu Talib such a huge responsibility, which was the care of the prophets Allah Allah wa the sermon in the mind of Abu Talib. That was the biggest responsibility that was the most important issue on the table, who will

00:24:09--> 00:24:15

take care of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he then turn to another one of his sons,

00:24:16--> 00:24:54

the uncle of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam by the name of Allah Ibis, who we know about so the last one who would later on accept Islam, he turned to my boss and he gave my boss the responsibility of the well of Zamzam. And remember we talked about in the earlier sessions, how I've done looked on him was the one who had rediscovered some that the well of Zamzam had been buried and had been concealed and had been lost for centuries. And Abdulmutallab literally saw a dream. And in that dream, he was shown the place and you know, some of the scholars even note that these were angels or melodica, because this was part of the foretelling of the coming of the province and some

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

that is great hate would be an Earth would be unsealed would be rediscovered to be

00:25:00--> 00:25:42

Reading into Welcome to coming of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So, Abdullah Abdullah was in charge of the well of Zamzam. And so he tells us on Ibis, one of the uncles of the process of that from from here on out, you're in charge of the well of Zamzam. And you're also in charge of then giving water serving water and arranging for water from the well of Zamzam to the Hajaj into the visitors of the bay to LA to the GABA, you will be in charge of taking care of that. And even though our bass was one of the youngest of the sons of the muttalib, still he gave him this responsibility. And I bass are the one who maintained that responsibility until the time of Islam

00:25:42--> 00:25:45

came, and even after Islam came, and the Muslims

00:25:47--> 00:26:21

you know, were at the conquest of Mecca. tamako, when the Muslims now were able to take control of the city of Mecca, even then the prophets, Ali Salam said that based on the will of my grandfather of the lieutenant, that our bass and his family members will maintain the responsibility of the well of Zamzam and the supplier. And so that stain in his charge. And at that point in time, of course, as we know, that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went into the care of a Bhutanese, he was put into the care and the trust of Abu Talib.

00:26:22--> 00:27:01

And the scholars also mentioned that there was a deeper connection that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam shared with his uncle Abu Talib, even over some of his other uncles, and his aunts. And that was simply because of the look, the lived had more than one wife. As was common at that time, of course, the Muslim had more than one wife. And so some of the uncles or the aunts of the prophets, a lot of them were uncles and aunts, but only through the grandfather. They would have different mothers than the grandmother of the prophecy. So they were they they were the uncles and the onset of the process, and through his grandfather, but not through the grandmother. All right. But what

00:27:01--> 00:27:39

was special and unique about Abu Talib is that about olives mother was the mother was also the grandmother of the prophets of Allah Islam. So the father of the prophets, a lot of them Abdullah, and I will call it not only had the same father of the mutiny, but they also had the same grandmother, a woman by the name of Fatima, the grandmother of the process, and her name was Fatima. And so Abu Talib was more closely related to the process, and then even his other uncles and aunts. And so there was a very, very special connection there. And, of course, a Bhutanese took care of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. And it's again, it goes on to say the same thing that Abu Talib

00:27:39--> 00:28:16

was, and I've mentioned this before, when talking about in describing him, I will talk it was not a wealthy man. Even Abdulmutallab wasn't an extremely wealthy man, as you would expect from somebody of his status and his stature and his respect and his leadership. He wasn't as wealthy as you would expect, but especially above him. And this again, goes back to the therapy of the profits a lot. So that again, unless panola grants the profits a lot is him he caught a loss Connaughton that takes away is very, very loving grandfather. And again, this is the continued upbringing and therapy of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. But at the same time, I love balances that had to be over the

00:28:16--> 00:28:28

promised ism, by providing another individual who loves the profits a lot. He sound like he loved nobody else in this world. And not only that, but he had some very special qualities of Donatella was that leader.

00:28:29--> 00:29:11

But Abu Talib was a very, very simple man. And that was what was unique about herbal tonic. It's a very simple man literally what we call ahead. In Arabic and Islamic terminology, the term zealot. Literally somebody who has no desire, no inclination, no connection to worldly things to materialistic things. I thought it was that type of man, lamb Allah, Who even is hoc mentions illogical dimensions are the classical books of Syrah. They mentioned that avatar was somebody who had no money, no wealth, he had no inclination towards these things. But at the same time, we're kind of hibou opuntia didn't, he so loved the process of very, very, like he very strongly cared for

00:29:11--> 00:29:49

the Prophet sallallahu desana such love and such affection towards the processor, like hibou, when he literally did not love that he loved the process of like, you didn't even love his own children. And I often say this and mentioned this that, you know, when we talk about such situations, or such cases and scenarios, we often say, you know, he loved him, like one of his own, who told him didn't love the process. And like one of his own, he loved the professor more than he loved his own. And that sounds impossible. And as a father, as a father, I don't know if I'd ever be capable of doing that loving somebody else's child more than you love your own. But I will totally prove that it is

00:29:49--> 00:30:00

possible, because he literally would love the profitsystem and take care of him more than he would do for his own children, his own child, well, and he would not go to sleep. Similarly.

00:30:00--> 00:30:40

I do not go to sleep until he checked on the process and made sure that he was safe and he was okay. When he would go out you and make sure the profits a lot easier than was with him where he would shower him with so much love that literally It's unheard of what kind of Yahushua he similarly like his father Abu Talib would not eat until he saw the process sylheti and when he would sit down to eat, he would sit first sit and feed the profits of some before he would eat himself. And he would make sure that good nice, special food was made for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And here comes a very interesting thing, and experience of Abu Talib, much like the experience of Halima

00:30:40--> 00:30:41


00:30:43--> 00:30:46

when the family of Abu Talib would eat

00:30:47--> 00:30:53

individually, because a Batali was not a wealthy man, food was very scarce.

00:30:55--> 00:31:15

Food was very it was very little in their home, when they would eat individually or even when they would eat together and the processing was not there. There was not enough food for everybody. Everybody would get rationed, a little bit of food, everybody would get a little piece of bread, and they would have to eat whatever there was drink a lot of water and just make do with what we had. Sorry, it is what it is.

00:31:16--> 00:31:22

But it's but they say we're either akadama home Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Shabbir,

00:31:23--> 00:31:39

the spit the same amount of food will be made. And when this eight year old nine year old child, Muhammad is orphan child, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, when he would sit and eat with them, the food would be enough for everybody

00:31:40--> 00:32:17

the same amount of food, and now you add another mouth, add another chair to the table, it should be even less for everybody else everybody should be left even more hungry than they were before. But miraculously, the food would be enough for everybody everybody would eat to their fill and food would still be left on the table. From the bark and the blessing of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu as a child, like we talked about, like we studied about Halima and her experiences with the profits a lot he sent him so literally the family of herbal tonic I will only be cared for the processor he physically was incapable of eating until the he knew that the processor met eaten. But even the

00:32:17--> 00:32:36

family of ohtani became so invested into the process of sodomy even if it was for their own agenda, their own purpose, they would not want to eat until Muhammad Ali son was there. They would all look for the process anyway Where's Mohammed go find him Go bring him and then we can eat food because of the butter kind of blessing that the processor would bring to the table.

00:32:39--> 00:33:12

And it said about a Bhutanese for Canada or other and you had the you had the a home that when a Batali would sometimes come home you know he was out running the affairs or managing his business and doing whatever he had to do and he would come home for lunch he would come home for lunch and the family was all sitting down waiting to put the food on table and they were just waiting for father to show up they're just waiting for the man of the house to show up so he could come and sit in then we could start eating he would come he would sit down and he would tell his whole family come out and Tim had a Yeti evening

00:33:13--> 00:33:20

come out and Tim had a tea evening stay as you are Nobody move Everybody stay until my son gets here

00:33:22--> 00:33:28

my boy Mohammed's not here yet. Everybody stay as your nobody eats until my boys out here

00:33:29--> 00:33:38

and the processing would be brought to lysosome the processing would come home and then he would eat along with them and they would literally

00:33:39--> 00:33:51

give preference to the prophets a lot he said um so if there was like a special you know it you know, maybe there was a nice piece of meat or a nice cut of meat or something like that. They would actually give it to the process. I mean the whole family would take care of him

00:33:53--> 00:34:14

and Abu Talib would and because when a little bit of food would remade that would not be enough for the family. But when the prophet SAW sent him would eat with them and it would be enough for everybody and food we leftover butanna would sit there in amazement. And he would look at this child his eight year old child this innocent child who had lost everybody near and dear to him and he would look at the prophets are so many would say in the Colombo Baraka

00:34:16--> 00:34:25

my son there's something special about you. You're a blessing child. You're a blessing human being there's some special blessing about you in nickel American.

00:34:27--> 00:34:27


00:34:29--> 00:34:48

the abus or excuse me the family of a multilevel and in fact even a bus or the Allahumma says that we heard from the family of herbal tonic we heard that when children would when the rest of the children in the house when they would wake up in the morning.

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

You know the crust that is you know at the corner of the eye. You know when you wake up in the morning you have a little bit of nastiness. You have a little bit of crust in the corner of your eye

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

Write the gunk or whatever it's called. Right. So that little bit of gunk is in your eye and the kids would be like really messy and stuff and they would wake up the other day they'd be drool all over their face and they have gunk in their eye in their head would be all their hair would be all disheveled and all messy looking and stuff and their mom would have to wash them and you know, comb their hair and you know, oil their hair and neat nice and make them up and make them look nice and neat before they went out of that. So when the children wake up in the morning, they look like a mess. Literally it says but Canada CBN used to be hoonah Robinson sure artha. When they wake up in

00:35:32--> 00:35:46

the morning, they'd be like nasty and messy and drool on their face and gunk in their eyes and their hair would be all disheveled and messed up. We used to be Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, mahina and kahina. But when the processor would wake up in the morning, His hair was like perfect.

00:35:48--> 00:36:18

His hair would look like perfect. And his eyes would look like bright and clean and clear. guy he literally means like somebody like coral. antimony, you don't like it's not quite mascara, that's not a good representation because then that mascara makes you look emo. Alright, the process of didn't look emo. All right, as a misrepresentation. But it just means that your eyes look big and bright. They look clean and clear. There's no redness, there's no gunk,

00:36:19--> 00:36:32

you know, not like how we look in the morning, how do you look once you've taken a shower and you've eaten some breakfast and you can put on your nice clothes, that you know, when you look nice and bright and fresh in the morning. That's what the process would look like the second he woke up.

00:36:34--> 00:36:56

And his hair would look nice, and his eyes would look big and bright. And clean and clear. There was something special about this child, and everybody would see that. And I even as a child the process of displayed Amazing love, and hello in mannerisms. He had this dignity to him that children normally don't have. Children are cute and adorable. Don't get me wrong.

00:36:57--> 00:37:33

But they also lacked like a certain amount of like dignity if you want to call it right I don't know what else to hide also referred to it. What I'm trying to say is, you know, if a child sees a piece of food on the ground, what does he do? Right, because right off and just puts it in their mouth. Right? If you put out like some some food on the on the table, and the child can read you what's going to happen. Destruction, child runs up to into sticks, both hands into it and is done is destroyed. That's what children do. So when the children wake up in the morning, they would look like a mess, the process who would wake up in the morning, and he looked just like this, this

00:37:33--> 00:38:07

beautiful, radiant child. And then when the mother will call his wife, she would put food out for breakfast in the morning for the children, the child was all the children would all run to the table. And they'd all like you know, kind of pushing each other out of the way and elbowing each other and they're all like trying to grab stuff and grabbing snatching. Like Like, if you opened up a box of doughnuts in the middle of a bunch of six year olds, you're gonna have to call the ambulance, something bad's gonna happen. Right. So they're all like pushing each other and snatching food out of each other's hands. And oh, Mommy will give me some and everybody's wrestling and

00:38:07--> 00:38:15

fighting for some food in the morning. And it said that they would look at the process the same way a Khufu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi, Santa Maria de la yenta Hebrew.

00:38:17--> 00:38:52

But the process would literally stand back and he wouldn't go and wrestle and jump in with them. And he would stand back quietly and calmly. He didn't feel that that was appropriate Beaver, a child, eight year old child, he would behave in this way for the moronic ambu. But then when they would see the sabotage of you know, like, the dad is on the morning kind of sitting off to the side reading newspaper, right kind of doing his own thing. And the kids are all they're having breakfast, or whatever they call it right? wrestling for food. So they're doing their whole thing and then I will call him one day it looks over and he sees all the kids are doing what kids do.

00:38:53--> 00:39:02

But the prophet of Allah salani some stands off to the side, just kind of with designer hands folded up, and he won't go in there and get his hands dirty with all of them. And he just has this this dignity

00:39:03--> 00:39:41

that normally children of that age don't possess. And when he saw that, then I will tell him used to in the morning go and before the children could get there and Ravage all the food, he would take a little bit of food off to the side and keep it separately. And when the kids would come in all star wrestling and grabbing food and running out of the house on their way out in the morning. Then you would keep some food off to the side and he would call the prophet SAW said him and give him food separately on the side. You say coming your son sit down here you go. And the process of would sit down for a properly very appropriately in eat with Adam. So even from that young age, the Prophet

00:39:41--> 00:39:54

salallahu alayhi wasallam displayed that type of you know, dignity and a clock and character and just those type of behavior that type of behavior and mannerisms even as Haku mentions

00:39:55--> 00:39:56

that a man

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

one time came from

00:40:01--> 00:40:08

An outside tribe or village, a Bedouin man, he came from outside. And he was basically a soothsayer fortune teller.

00:40:09--> 00:40:46

And the Arabs were very much this was a big part of their culture, soothsayers, fortune tellers. You know, today people read their horoscope, but they call a psychic or whatever it is. So just like, unfortunately, it's a part of today's culture. And of course, we understand this is something that's not permissible in Islam. The prophet SAW sent him says somebody who goes to a fortune teller intentionally knowing what they're doing, and they go to that person, then that person has rejected and denied the religion that Mohammed Tolleson was sent with, meaning that persons disbelieved in Islam, a person is, you know, contradicting their own faith. So it's impermissible. But of course,

00:40:46--> 00:41:23

this unfortunately happens today. And it happened at that time pre Islamic in the pre Islamic era, in Arab society at that time. So one thing that everybody would do, and this particular fortune teller was very, very famous. He was very, very famous, and one of his specialties was, you would take your children to him, you would take your, you would take your children to him, and he would look at the children, he would ask them a few questions, and he would do his little mumbo jumbo, his little act. And then what he would do at the end of it was, he would kind of tell you about the future of your town. Oh, there's something good or there's something bad or Be careful Watch out for

00:41:23--> 00:41:32

this or whatever it is. So Tanya, similarly, took the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam out there to this fortune teller, and

00:41:34--> 00:41:46

did promises It was a small child, so I will just grab them by the hand took them out there as well. And when that fortune teller looked at the profits a lot he said, I'm and kind of came close to him and sat down and just looked at him for a while.

00:41:48--> 00:42:12

And after he was done looking at him, you know, I will tell him, of course, figured, okay, our turns over. So he grabs the hand of the promises him and he, you know, starts to leave. And there's other customers or clients and they kind of, they're getting kind of restless, like, you know, people waiting in line, get restless. Oh, look at my child. Look at my boy, it's our turn. It's our turn. And so the man, the fortune teller kind of lost sight of the process on for a second.

00:42:13--> 00:42:25

And so he got really, really nervous. And he started to say, where's that boy that I was just looking at? Where's the boy that I was just looking at? And sort of calling for him and he hears the fortune teller that he sounds kind of like he's panicking.

00:42:27--> 00:42:44

He sounds Pat, he sounds like he's panicking. And he seems a little too interested. You know, this is just supposed to be a little ritual like a little tradition. You go to a foreign shelter, you show him your son, he says, Oh, good, good things, nice things, whatever, whatever angle back on on back home, it's just like, like, in this culture. We are taking a picture with Santa.

00:42:45--> 00:43:19

It's just a little ritual. It's a little custom. You go to the mall, you take a picture with Santa and you get going. Awesome. When Santa starts asking what where's that kid that I just took a picture with? You freak out right? what you want with my kid? What's wrong with you? We need to get out of here. Santa is kind of creepy. Right? Right. So I will Tommy you know, our turns over. He takes the profits a lot SLM and he starts to go takes his nephew Mohammed, he starts to go. The fortune teller starts to freak out. Oh, where's that kid? Where's that? Where's that kid? hears him? And I will tell him gets kind of nervous. He's like, what's wrong with this guy? Why does he have

00:43:19--> 00:43:29

such a keen interest in my nephew? Remember, they're already very overprotective of the promises and then all of a sudden you have some stranger, some weird fortune teller guy looking for him. So

00:43:30--> 00:43:33

I will tell him pieces out of there he gets out of there real quickly.

00:43:35--> 00:43:46

It says in the narration that the fortune tellers very upset he gets very angry and very upset. He says whaler Get out of here all of you. I don't wanna see anybody else's kid all of you get out of here.

00:43:50--> 00:43:56

Bring me that back that boy that I was looking at earlier for logging a akun anila who's shot

00:43:57--> 00:44:29

because there's something special about that boy, That boy is not an ordinary boy. That's not an ordinary child. There's something special and we know from the Messenger of Allah a lot of human factor Quran talks about this as well. Raja mumble habe talks about the shouting right was some It was a was semi robotic or madaraka methodical nature massage. Right. And in the profits are some tells us about this in a hadith as well, that a lot of times these fortune tellers, they are influenced by shouting.

00:44:30--> 00:44:39

And what happens is that the shell team that tried to sneak out a little bit of information or a little bit of information there from the conversations of the melodica

00:44:40--> 00:44:59

that they they bring bits and pieces of broken information. There's a famous story of Ebensee at a yard, that there was a child that some of the Sahaba felt, you know, where we're worried. There was some paranoia amongst the Sahaba that even Sajjad might turn out to be the digital the Antichrist

00:45:00--> 00:45:12

So they they told the process and when the process that I'm basically tested this child, and then the process, I'm assured the Sahaba he said he's not the job. But he is influenced by shouting.

00:45:13--> 00:45:17

And the process of actually the incident goes through the process and said, I'm thinking of something.

00:45:18--> 00:45:29

And he was thinking of an idea of the Quran, Yama, that is some out will be Doohan a movie, that I'm thinking of something, tell me what I'm thinking of. And the child sat there for a little while and then started going.

00:45:31--> 00:45:33

And the process of said he's influenced by shouting.

00:45:35--> 00:45:43

So this is a similar type of situation, possibly, that these types of fortune tellers would often be influenced by shouting.

00:45:45--> 00:45:52

And so it's very, very possible that when this fortune teller sitting there when the company of the Prophet of Allah saw some, even as an innocent child,

00:45:53--> 00:46:01

that through some shouting or something he's influenced, or he's told, or he's informed, that this is a very special Todd, you need to keep an eye on this child.

00:46:02--> 00:46:40

We might need you to do something with this child. And so he freaks out and he says, where's that child bring him back to me because there's something special about the child but by that time, I will tell him has already moved on and he's already left. So inshallah we'll go ahead and stop here. So just to summarize, what we've talked about this particular week is that the Prophet of Allah Salaam was able to receive the very loving doting care and attention of his grandfather Abdulmutallab until after matale, passes away, and passes him on into the care of his very loving, generous kind of uncle level Talib, and then his uncle obatala basically takes care of the Prophet

00:46:40--> 00:47:15

of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And we'll go on to talk about some of the experiences of the process. And while indicare of his uncle level tilem and again, we talked about some of those special conversations or incidents, where people constantly continue to note something special about this blessing child, Mohammed Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I you know, driving in here today, you know, the weather's kind of rough outside. And I definitely appreciate everybody still coming to the masjid, first of all, and then sticking around for the lesson the class adults afterwards. And I just wanted to make a comment on that, that, you know, it's important to remember

00:47:15--> 00:47:28

why we do what we do. Like a little bit of trivia, why we do what we do. You know, a lot of times, and this is unfortunate, but a lot of times in our own shortsightedness, or our lack of, you know,

00:47:29--> 00:48:10

perspective, or lack of perspective, a lot of times, you know, and this is definitely a trick of shaitaan as well. You know, sometimes we become very entitled, I come here and I give the data and I'm doing you a favor, or you come here to listen and you do me a favor. But we always have to remind ourselves to humble ourselves and benefit from what we're talking about is I'm not doing you a favor, you're not doing me a favor. We're not doing the Irving machine a favor, and we definitely are not doing a lion is Prophet salallahu alaihe salam many favors. But this is a loss of words Allah showering a huge blessing upon us. This is a love doing us a favor, by allowing us to be a

00:48:10--> 00:48:52

small part of continuing the legacy. And talking about the life of the Beloved of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam This is such a huge blessing that for 45 minutes a week, you and I we sit here and we sit in the masjid in the house of Allah. And we talk about the life of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu taala is an unbelievable enormous blessing. And we should be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala that he allows us to do this, that he selects us to do this, that he accepts us to do this. And we should be even more grateful to Allah subhanaw taala on a day like this, that when it's rain, and it's dark, and it's cold, and the roads are kind of dicey, that when it's enough excuse for us

00:48:52--> 00:48:53

to stay home.

00:48:54--> 00:49:31

But Allah subhanaw taala still accepts us and grants us at no fees and the ability to put up with a little bit of different idol at the same time don't want to blow it out of proportion. It's not like it's a hurricane or a tornado outside. But still, whatever little difficulty it is a las panatela allows us to overcome that difficulty to push through that difficulty and still Come here and sit with Adam and sit with respect and read the life of the beloved messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi salam May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to benefit from studying the life of the Messenger of Allah. May Allah grant his true love for Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Subhana Allah

00:49:31--> 00:49:33

He will be handy he subhanak along

00:49:35--> 00:49:37

into the Sofitel cabana to boil it.
