One of the observations that we made in the last few weeks was while it's often spoken about how the profits a lot a settlement, this was part of the tibia. You know the profits a lot. SLM says a W, ob fast and dB, that my Lord taught me a dub. And he taught me a most excellent form of meaning to put it into terms that my lord instilled within me certain very specific and excellent qualities and characteristics through the upbringing and through the experiences that I was put through. And so most definitely, it was preparing the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to connect with the divine, like no other human being had ever connected with the divine, and to be detached from worldly things, unlike any other human being ever before him or after him for that matter. And part of that upbringing and therapy was, of course, the slowly pulling away of, you know, people and things that normally human beings are very attached to, and that they lean on very heavily, such as his mother, his father, he never knew his father than his mother being pulled away, being taken away at the tender age of six than his grandfather at the age of eight, not having any biological siblings. But at the same time, there was a balance in the
therapy of the prophets, a lot of the Divine data of the prophets a lot he said them because
at whatever point in his life, who's ever cared he was in even though it wasn't what typically is experienced by a human being, you know, never having the father then being in the care of Halima
a Saudia and then coming back to his mother, and then his mother passing away and being in the care of his grandfather than the grandfather passing away, and being in the care of his uncle, and not having some older brother or older sister that kind of serves as a stand in for the parents not having those things. But at the same time, there was this much balance in that divine upbringing of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, to where who's ever care he wasn't at that particular time, was a very, very affectionate, loving human being. That the profits, a lot of these have never had any shortcoming in the amount of love and affection that he received. And we've been talking about over
the last couple of weeks, how you know, I've done muttalib, how affectionate he was towards the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that it was almost like, you know, he was in some narrations. He was past the age of 100, at the time, where he's taking care of the prophets. So he's a primary guardian of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. But it's almost like he was able to reach deep down inside, reach back into his past, and kind of pull out a couple of more good years, where he was so diligent, he would wake up and take care of the process, he would feed the profits, a lot of time, you would make sure he had breakfast, he would take care of him, he would take him everywhere that he went, he would
make sure that he went to bed and he put him to bed before he himself, he went to sleep himself. So it's Allah subhanaw taala provided a loving, caring individual to a guardian to care for the prophets a lot he sent him. Then when he transfers into the care of his uncle level, Donna, we spoke about that towards the end of last week's session, how obatala began, this is an elderly man, he's his father's older brother. So he's a lot older. Plus, on top of that he has a family of his own. And on top of that, he's inherited some of the responsibility from the grandfather from his father, Abdulmutallab. But in spite of all of that, again, it's as if I will call him just has this burst of
energy. And he has this motivation. And Allah subhanaw taala grants him the ability to be able to care for the prophets a lot. He said no less than how a parent would care for their own child. So there's a very interesting balance in the upbringing of the prophets a lot he sent him.
So now we're at the phase in the point where the profits, a lot of them is primarily in the care of obatala. That is his guardian. That's who's cared that he's in.
Now, one very interesting incident that occurred. And this is, again, one of those types of incidents like we've, we've spoken about the splitting of the chest, something that's fairly well known, but yet Alhamdulillah, by looking at the classical sources of the Sierra, we're able to learn it in a lot more detail and we're able to learn a lot better. Similarly, another very well known incident, from the life of the prophets, a lot of them pre Prophethood. Before Prophethood is the,
the meeting with the monk by the name of boo Hadar that that's another very well known incident that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was able to meet or he came across the monk by the name of Allah. And so that's basically what we'll be discussing here today. Now there's a difference in narrations in the books of Sierra in the classical text and Reese references of the Sierra as to what was the age of the prophets, Allah
selam, the minority
of scholars of Sierra in Hadith in the life of the Prophet ceylonese, in the prophetic biography, they're of the opinion that the prophets a lot, he said was about nine years old at the time of this incident. And the only thing that we the main thing that we would learn from that the unique lesson that we would get from that is, this happened very soon after the prophets, a lot of them came into the care of herbal tonic. So it was a very early on experience, not just for the prophets, a lot of him but also for him, which would then later impact the way they handled the way they went forward managing the, you know, the, the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, how they managed his travel
and how they manage his interaction with different types of people. The majority of the scholars of Sierra and this is what you find in the majority of the books of Sierra is that this occurred when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was 12 years old. So it happened a couple of years after the profits, a lot of them had now been living under the care and the guardianship of a bolt on the rig, regardless of the fact nevertheless has happened when the profits a lot even was still very, very young.
So I will dawn It was a businessman, I will call it was a businessman. That's what he did. And the method of business, which we talked about in the early sessions of our series here on the CFO, where we talked about the condition of the Arabs. And we also discussed the economic situation of the Arabs, we talked about how they were businessmen. And the way they did business was, they would either travel to the north or they would travel to the south. And they would bring goods that were exclusive that were specific to those regions. And Macau kind of became this central location where everybody could come and find goods from all over the Arab world. And so it was kind of like a
central hub. So they themselves didn't have any products that they were able to manufacture or produce. But nevertheless, they served as a very strategic, almost like a business center or a business hub, where all these products were brought and then sold. And especially because of the GABA being there and the season of Hajj coming and the Arabs would frequently visit and frequent the GABA, because of that it was an ideal location to have that type of a business center, because people were already coming. So it was almost like a tourist attraction. And so it was a perfect place to set up a big, you know, mall, if you will to set up a big business center. So I thought it
was one of such businessmen, and one year, and again, if we concede, and even is hoc, and some of the more classical scholars of Sierra, they take the position that the prophets, a lot of whom was about 12 years old at this time. And some of the more authentic narration the books of Hadith also mentioned the fact that the process was 12 years old. So a Bhutanese decided to go on a business trip to a sham. All right, well, today we translate a Shama serious specifically. But it's not just area, which is known as modern day Syria, but it was a broader region. All right. So overall, he was traveling to the region of a sham, and a sham at that point in time in history. And we talked again
about this in the earlier sessions, that a sham was ruled by the Roman Empire. It was an extension of the Roman Empire, and they had come and taken over it, and they had set up shop in the area of a shop. So there was a strong Christian presence in a sham. So Abu Dhabi was traveling there. And there are two again narrations and they both kind of make sense because you can understand how they both kind of correlate to each other. One of the narration says that Abu Dhabi was making preparations and you know, these business trips, and we've already talked about how the great grandfather of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, Hashem, he died on a business trip, the father of the
prophets a lot, he passed away on a business trip, even the mother of the prophets a lot he passed away on the way back from Medina just to visit. But nevertheless, travel was something that was very difficult at that time. And it was no place for women and children, women and children had no business being on these business trips. And so a butanna was making preparations and getting ready to go and making sure the family's all safe and comfortable while he'll be gone. And it said in one of the narrations that the prophets a lot of these him this this child of 12 years old, and you have to understand that his world was this man, I will tell him,
his entire family was this one man I built on him. It was his uncle, he didn't have anybody else. And so he is very attached to him. And when he was packing his stuff and getting ready to go and saying this for a while, so the family, the profits allowed him the duration says he starts to cry.
This 12 year old child starts to cry. And he cries very, very profusely. And he says, Don't leave me here. I don't I don't know anybody else. I'm not comfortable with anybody else who I don't. I don't know who else I can rely on. Don't leave me here by myself.
butano tries to comfort the profits a lot. So many other family members say of course, what do you say? You're not typically the conversation? Oh, he's just a kid, leave him turtle. Right? Just he's crying. He's being insistent. He's just being the kid. Of course, you can't take a child on a business trip who takes the child on a business trip? Don't worry about it. It'll be okay. Tomorrow, he'll forget about it. He'll be running around with the other kids. But the profits of Sam is really honestly very.
He's very distraught by the departure of a platonic and autonomous, equally distraught at the distress of the profits a lot he sent him, he's troubled by the distress that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was going through, and so on him, says, I can't go like this. He says, No, I refuse to go. And he says, We're lucky the US will, Jenna v. Marissa will not fight it will Who will you follow me?
He says that I swear by God, that I am going to take him with me. And I will never leave him and he will never ever leave me. So he comforts the child by saying, Don't worry, I'm going to take you with me. I don't care who disagrees. I don't care if the business the rest of the business caravan refuses to take us along. I don't care what the family has to say. Don't worry, son, I'm not going to leave you. I'm never going to leave you by yourself ever again. Don't you ever worry about this.
And so you know, and again, I hate to jump forward into the Sierra. But later on. When the when the divine revelation comes in the mission of the prophets, a lot of times big begins as the Messenger of God. And at that point in time, even though Abu Talib doesn't accept this and doesn't come into the deen doesn't accept the deen himself. But you understand why he's so devoted and loyal, and supportive of the prophets realism, you understand why he so vehemently defends the prophets a lot
because of this deep emotional connection.
So he says, I swear, son, I'll never leave you don't worry, I'm not going to go without you. I'll take you with me.
So he takes the profits on the lohana, he was selling with him. While they're traveling, they stopped. They stopped in in the area of a sham at a place by the name of Busan. And it was near some It was a small, little like village almost. And it was near some other major cities and areas, but it was kind of on the outskirts. And the Quraysh business caravans would often stop here, it was kind of a low profile location, it was a safe place. And there were usually some, you know, amenities in the area for them to be able to get some food and maybe have some water to kind of wash up and clean up and things like that. So they had a normal procedure, it was standard operating
procedure for them, that they would stop off at this place. And this was one of their stops. So they stopped off at that place. But one of the unique things about that location was that there was a temple there was a little, you know,
little worshipping center there. And the reason why I'm not specific as to whether it's a synagogue, or it's a church, and I'll explain that in just a second. But just think of it for now that there was like a little temple, there was a little monastery that was there. And that monastery that temple was primarily inhabited by a monk by the name of boo halo around him. And there's a little bit more detail given to us about this monk. Now, the first question is, is that, again, majority of the scholars have seen on the books of CLSA that he was Christian.
There are some accounts of deceit, although However, they mentioned the fact that no, he was rather a, he was Jewish. But again, the majority of the scholars say no, he was a Christian monk. And one thing about that little monastery at the place of Busan was that it had always been inhabited. It was always run by it was always inhabited by one of the greatest scholars of the Jewish Christian tradition at that time.
That it would always be inhabited by one of the most well researched, well educated well read Christian monks of that era of that time, he would his seat, his chair was the monastery in Busan. And it was reserved for not just a big high profile monk or priests, but it was reserved more for a monk or a priest, who was very well read who was a researcher who was an academic, and therefore it was good because they would kind of exclude themselves, they would separate them because they weren't public preachers. They weren't people person, like they weren't, they weren't, he wasn't a people person, but it would be reserved there for that person to be able to go there. And it said
that that monastery and busara had a library, which was probably one of the deepest and most,
you know, well stacked libraries of ancient sacred text out of all of the in all of the Christian lands. So there were some manuscripts, some handwritten manuscripts of ancient texts and sacred texts that could not be found anywhere else in the Christian Kingdom at that time.
So that seat would be reserved for one of the most well read well researched academics of the Christian tradition, a monk, a priest of that nature, and he would go there so that he could be separated, he could be secluded and could just read and read and read through all these ancient manuscripts. And whenever anybody had a question, or had any type of a deep inquiry, then they would travel out to Busan, and just ask the questions that they needed to and go about their way. So there was no public preaching that was done there. It was a research center, and it was a seat that was reserved for the greatest Christian researcher that was alive at that time. And so whenever the monk
or the priest occupying that seat that chair, the the monastery in Busan, whenever you would get old and be near death, he would handpick his successor. He would hand pick his successor. So Bill Hader, was the latest in a long succession of priests and
monks of that caliber of that level. And he was resident there and Bill Hader completely fit
the position. He was literally to the point of being antisocial. The locals that lived in the area would stay away way away from him. Because he didn't like interacting with people. He was almost to the point where he was a little, he was like a grumpy old man. He wasn't very pleasant to talk to he wasn't very pleasant to deal with. And so he didn't show a lot of affection to the locals. But when these play when the Quraysh when these Arabs, these crazies pagans, these idol worshipers, these moose unicorn would pass through on the way to business, he absolutely wanted nothing to do with them, he would literally avoid them completely while they were in camp there, he wouldn't even come
outside of the monastery, when he saw when he would spot them that they're here, he had a little place where you would sit in the monastery and you could look out where they were coming from. And he would spot that, okay, the Arabs are here, then he would just say I'm not even the mccanns are here, the police are here, you wouldn't even come outside, they're gonna let them pass. I want nothing to do with these people. So he completely fit the position.
And it's actually mentioned about him. In some narrations. It's mentioned in some of the books of history, even kotoba mentions this in his book that,
you know, in.
In the old Christian tradition, it was said that there were three people of that era of that time that were the most knowledgeable people, or that were the greatest individuals of that era of that time, which we refer back to as jania, the pre Prophethood era, but from the Christian perspective, there was like this, there was this understanding that there are three of main individuals, there are three really special individuals of that era and of that time, the first of them was this man blade or the raw hip, and it's at that boo Hara was a title or a name that he was given when he came into this position. But his original name is mentioned in some of the books of history, as surges
that his name was actually suffragists. He was from the people of Optima case. He was from vanilla delays. His name was subjects but he was known as a TA or RA, Bo Hadar, the monk. And the second individual that's mentioned is that that was of this great status in the pre profit of that era. The the later Jamelia period was rehab, a shin knee rehab, Shani, who's also referred to as ignorant Bara. And it said about this man, the Abba Shani, that he was a very pious, righteous man who was upon remember we talked about in the pre Islamic period, there were a few 100 a few people who were upon the proper teaching of the previous prophets who worship one God, they were they were monetha
they were monotheists. So it said that Yabba, Shani was one of those such individuals. And it's actually said in the books of history that we will probably eventually got woke up one of the human body like is Allah Yura in the high fashion, that it said that with this man rubbish and he was buried, it was observed by the people of that time that there would always be constantly very light drizzle in that area, as almost like a rock man a mercy like a cut Alma for this individual because of how righteous and pious he was. And then the third greatest person of that era, or rather, he was like, this was a legend of that time. So the three great people of that era they used to say was
rah, rah him, but he appa Shani, who had passed away not too long ago. And then they used to say, well, the third greatest man of this era is alone. tava is somebody that we still await his arrival. And based off of that historians and scholars of Sierra say that that taba was basically referring and alluding to Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, just this is a small little side note, but nevertheless, the point in the purpose of mentioning that is that Bill Hader was a very, very well regarded, well respected individual, academic scholar, monk priest of his time.
So, the business
caravan from Croatia Marquez traveling about Olive is with them. And about Olive as a child with him this this young boy by the name of Mohammed Abdullah Abdullah, the nephew of Abu Talib is with him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they stop at the place where they normally do. And like I said before Bill Hader normally would not speak to them will not come out would not interact with them, when even look at them would avoid, avoid eye contact with them wanted no business wanted nothing to do with these people.
So instead, I was sitting in his monastery where he had this rule, really great view, because it said that the monastery was sitting up on a hill, so that he could kind of look out,
you know, into the distance. And he could see the path leading up to that area and the monastery, and he's just sitting there doing his thing, just chillin. And while he's sitting there one day, he sees that the Americans are arriving. And of course, he sees that the Caucasian Americans are arriving. And you know, the typical reaction, he rolls his eyes like, Oh, God, here we go. Again, these guys are back. I wonder what they want this time. And, but then all of a sudden generation says something catches his attention.
And, again, being somebody of such intelligence and such research, it immediately catches his attention. And what he sees and what he spots is the fact that there's a cloud moving along with them.
There's a cloud moving along with them casting down a shadow upon a couple of people, one or two people, because of course, everybody's traveling, they're kind of close. So it's traveling along with them. And when they stop at the place where they usually encap, he notices that the cloud stops.
And now he's really intrigued. And now he comes out of the monastery and looks even closer. And he spots that, okay, there's a couple of people there where this cloud is putting the shade. And then he noticed that one of them breaks apart,
a boy breaks apart, and the cloud follows him. And he goes in, he sits down under this, and he sits down next to a tree.
And this is the really remarkable part, he sits down next to this tree. And even though the the,
you know, the shade of a tree is something everybody gravities are attracted to. So the others, they go and they're sitting under the shade of the tree. So the boy comes, since all the spot under the shade is kind of occupied and taken, he comes in, he sits on the other side of the tree just to lean against the tree. And then Bill Hader notices that the branches literally bend and move ever so slightly into a position where shade is now being cast upon that child. And now behavior is completely blown away. Now he's hyperventilating.
That is this, the moment that I've been waiting for my whole life, I've been waiting for this moment. And he rushes back inside the monastery, and he flips open to all the texts and all the books and all the manuscripts that he can find.
And he refreshes himself on everything. And he he reads, that a shade will always cover this Prophet
of the Last Times, that the trees and the all the creation of Allah will show respect in regard to this messenger in this prophet.
And now he's very excited.
And now he decides, and you read about all the other descriptions that are provided in the ancient texts about this Prophet of the Last time. And so now he's very interested. He's very intrigued. So Bill Hader, immediately calls whatever students are, you know, students and devotees and followers that he has. He calls them and he says, I need you to go, here's some money, I need you to go and I need you to go buy a bunch of food and we need to prepare a feast.
And they're thinking what's going on a feast for who? Nevertheless, he sends them they go they prepared that they bring this stuff, they start preparing the fees. And next thing you know, but hey, it all comes down from the monastery that you got to see the reaction of the paradisiacal as you're sitting there, just chilling minding their own business doing their thing, and all of them were haters coming their way. And so they're kind of like hey, look who it is. It's the cranky old guy. Right? And you probably need something watching Watch him You won't even look at as you pretend like we're not even here. He won't even like wave say howdy like nothing.
And next thing you know, they notice that he doesn't change his course he's walking straight towards them. And now they start to freak out like, oh God, what's going on? He's coming this way. And we'll head on walks right up to them. And he's very pleasant and he greets them.
Now how are you doing? How are your journey? How's your journey? How are your travels? And they're completely freaked out now like what's going on? And he says that I would like to invite all of you your entire group to my home the monastery and I'd like to you know show some hospitality Do y'all are my guest
is never happen.
so they very quickly get past their shock and amazement. They're excited. Yeah, we get a nice meal while we're here, some hospitality finally.
So in the evening when they get ready to go for the feast, now they drag you know Abu Talib dragged along his nephew does 12 year old kid who's being seen as a burden by everybody in the business, you know, the caravan. And so they decide, okay, there's got to be some advantage to bringing this kid along. So here's the advantage. We all want to go get our grub on. The youngin has to stay here and watch the animals. He's got to stay here and watch all the supplies and watch all the goods and watch all the money and watch all the merchandise and watch all the camels and everything. He gets to stay here and hang out.
So they go about on their way nice and dressed up and cleaned up and freshened up, we get to go eat with the big famous monk today. They feel special. And they show up for the food. And we hate our scanning. The crowd is scanning their faces, and he doesn't see the boy.
And so he says again, he doesn't want to blow his cover.
So he says, you know, yeah, yeah, man Yama*a crush. Oh, people have crush. Is everybody here? Are you sure everybody here? I say, yeah, everybody's here. He's like, No, I think somebody's not here. He's having trouble, right? maintaining the cover. So he's like, I kind of notice somebody's missing. And they're like, yeah, there's one young man with us. And you know, we left them back there to watch the animals and watch the supply. So he's chillin, he's doing his thing. Don't worry about him. He's nobody important. And he's just a child.
And then boiler says, No, look, I invited all of you.
I invited all y'all I want to I want to show hospitality to everybody. That was my condition. He's getting a little agitated. And they can start to sense that he's a little agitated now their meals in jeopardy. So quickly, you know, one of the Quraysh before burrito loses his cool because remember, this is a man who doesn't deal with people a whole lot. So he's getting very agitated very quickly. He's losing patience with these, with these pagans with these ignorant folk. And so one of the Quraysh realizes he kind of reads the science. He's like, Man, I'm hungry. I'm not about to lose this meal. Right? So he's, he speaks up and he's like, no, yeah.
He's like, No, no, no, don't worry, everything will be okay. He's like, we'd never should have done that how, you know how thoughtless of us, that is Mohammed Abdullah bin Abdul muttalib.
That he's, he's a very special child. He's the son of Abdullah, who was the son of our leader Abdulmutallab, the famous Abdulmutallab, he's Abdulmutallab, his grandson. He's the progeny of our leadership. So of course, we never should have left him that's very thoughtless of us. Don't worry, I'm gonna go run and fetch him right now. And he runs and he comes to the process. I'm in the Profit System, sitting there quietly under the tree, very quiet, very thoughtful, you know, just reflecting deep in his thoughts. And he comes in, he grabs the profits a luxury says, Come on, we have to go. And he brings up profits a lot. He said them. And then of course, the food begins and the food
starts and everyone starts to eat. And it said in the narrations that while they're eating, and he actually prepares a huge feast for them. And so they're getting their grub on full scale. And while they're eating, it said the boy Hadar is sitting there, john again, how the hula Van shaden he's literally staring at the prophet SAW some of the entire time.
He's staring at the process of the entire time, very intently, just focused in homed in on this child, looking at his facial features, looking at his mannerisms, observing him watching him
staring at him the entire time. And once everybody kind of is eating their food, and then you know what happens when the food kind of starts initially there's some awkwardness, everyone trying to be very proper, very nice and very polite. And then once the food starts to flow, and everybody starts to get full and gets loosened up, and now they're all eating, and they're laughing, and they're joking, and they're, you know, they're they're chillin, it's it's a nice social occasion. And when everybody kind of gets distracted, the ice has been broken.
Now bahareh slowly makes his way over and sits next to the profits a lot.
And he shows a lot of affection to the profits awesome. He places a hand on his back.
He says, how's everything sound? Is everything good? You like the food and he takes more food and presents it to the process of and this is not just so that he can kind of get this child comfortable. So he can start asking the question that he really wants to ask the scholars actually right, that behera was fully convinced that this is an abuse, it is a mom. And so behera is actually doing hikma of the boy that he
you know believes to be the Prophet of the final times that this man, this boy will grow up to become a man who received divine revelation. So some of the scholars actually right this is a doctrine
doing a demo of this prophet that will I live to see the days of prophethood or not only Allah knows, I don't know. But let me take whatever opportunity I can get now to show respect to this great man, this messenger of God.
And so he, you know, he gives him food and he serves him food and puts more food, etc, etc. Boy, come on. And he's been very nice to him, and he's comforting him and he's serving you more and more food.
And then he starts to ask some questions. And of course, the prophet Sessoms a child. So now when he's getting more food put in front of him, and he's eating, he's also getting comfortable. Now he starts entering and of course, the Messenger of Allah, Allah isn't part of his nature that Allah instilled within was he was very honest, brutally honest, very, very truthful. There was no conniving, no scheming, No, none of that. And so he's asking him questions in the process. And very honestly, he's entering the questions. And he asked him his very pointed questions. He asked him about how he sleeps, what does he see when he sleeps? What does he do throughout the day? What kind
of thoughts does he have? Does he play with other children? What does he like to do what is in our life to do? And he starts asking all these questions. And increasingly he becomes more and more convinced
that this is that boy, this is that child, this is that messenger
and it also says that he notices the mark of profit on the back of the profits a lot he sent him now how would that exactly happens isn't really explicitly provided that whether he just requests to see it or he places his hand and kind of you know, kind of rubbing the back and showing affection to the child he feels the the mark of prophethood or love with Allah, Allah and Allah knows best but he, he he's able to confirm that that mark of prophethood is there on his back.
And so now behave as excitement can barely contain himself. Now what everybody's all full and they're just like kicking back and they're all waiting for the T to come out. And they're all chillin doing their thing. That's when he kind of moves closer to Abu Talib, who's sitting on the other side of the profits a lot. He's lm, he moves closer to Him, and He wants to speak to him.
And he asks a Bhutanese that, what is your relation to this boy?
What is your relation to this boy?
And I will talk to him says, What evening is my son? Because remember affectionately, he treats him like his son cares for him. Like essentially, he's my son says he can't be your son.
So he says, Yeah, he's my brother son.
Says Where's his father?
He said, he passed away. He says, When did he pass away?
And he said that he passed away before he was born while his mother was expecting him. And he says, You're speaking the truth now. Now? Yes, he's so that. Now you're speaking the truth.
And then he says, look, all I'm going to tell you is that this nephew of yours is a very special child.
In the hula, hula hoops,
that there's something very special about this nephew of yours.
And then he says, you're heading further into a shop. I strongly advise you don't go or you at least don't take the child.
Because just like I've noticed something special about your child. And actually so Hannah law one of the narrations, it's a weaker narration, but I mentioned it here, but it's a weaker narration.
That window Qureshi initially came to behind us monastery for food, and they left the profits a lot isn't back behind. And he asked Where is you know who's missing and the child's missing? Instead that the conversation little went a little further and I will toggle back to what he said, Yeah, he's, you know, he's my nephew, or he's my son, whatever. And he said that, you know, I left him there, he'll be okay, he'll be fine. And one of the narrations actually says that he takes a boot on him. And he says, look,
look at him. You see how the trees bent over him.
And then he actually says, you know, send somebody to go and call him. And when that one man from the police goes and calls the Profit System and the profits Luddism starts to walk towards a monastery, he says, Now look right above him. You see the cloud following him. That's your that's your nephew. So one week your narration actually says that Bill Hader actually points this out to him. But nevertheless, according to the more you know, well
He has a conversation with him and then he tells him will tell him you know, just like I know that there's something special about your nephew and I'm telling you, I was able to see things that confirm for me that your nephew is a very special child, a child that we've been expecting for some time.
There are other people in a sham who will also know similar things and they will notice those things you people are not people have have the Kitab
you you don't you don't understand you don't know what we know.
There are certain things that you know
More well read and well known, well educated people of our tradition, in our sacred tradition, there are some things that we know that you're not aware of. And there are people like that in a sham deeper into a sham to territory you're going into, and they'll notice those same things, but they might not be as merciful as I am. They may not be, as you know, willing to, you know, believe and be, be optimistic or be as pleasant as I am.
that some of them might have some ill will towards that child. Or they might want to try to grab that child for their own gain or their own motives, their own agenda. Either way, you'll be putting that child in some harm's way. Don't take him there.
So, taking the advice of Abu Talib
taking the advice of a Hydra Abu Talib, the uncle of the prophets a lot of him decides that was bested for the profits allowed him to return back to for Mohammed his nephew Salalah volleys him to refer returned back to Makkah to the safety of Makkah. Now there's also a couple of other narrations which mentioned the fact
that wild Declaration was there. So when he has this conversation with Dumbledore live and I will surely be sure as he goes, I'm going to make sure the child gets back to my car. Don't worry, I'm not going to take him further into a shower.
That while they're there, they're in camp there are
a couple of people do arrive from a sham. Wondering she says that five people come wonder ation says that seven or individuals arrive at the arrive Tibor Hadar
and they come to hate on E they, you know, he welcomes them. They're from a sham. They know him, he knows them. And he asked him, he goes, why are you here? And he said, and they tell him that, look, we've been reading some of the, you know, ancient manuscripts are sacred texts that we have. And all the signs and all the narrations and all the prophecies aligned to the fact that that nebia vaca was a man is a child. And he's supposed to be in this area in this region right here at this moment, somewhere around this area. And there's nobody who knows more about those ancient sacred traditions more than you do. Is there anything that you can tell us? Have you seen him? Can you spot him? Is
there anything more that you can share? And Barbados grows very worried, because again, he doesn't know whether he can trust these people with this information or not. So he tells him, he goes, he goes in he says, hold on, let me check for my my own personal notes. And he goes and he checks them and he comes back and he says, I don't think you're you're reading things correctly. I don't think that you're expecting or you're reading things correctly. I don't I don't agree at all that he's supposed to be here right now he kind of covers so that they move along on his way. And then he goes and informs Talia that look, some people just came looking for your nephew. You need to you need to
make a move on this now.
Now from here, what exactly happens? There are three types of narrations. Three types of traditions in the books of history. As to what happens now
is very small minority of the tradition or the narration, the historical account. And the scholars of this of the prophetic biography. The CLR say that a butanna decides to take the profits along with him but decides to keep him very close to him and decides to kind of cut his business trip, a little bit shorter than scheduled, but nevertheless keeps him with him. Goes takes care of some business quickly kind of leaves the rest of the business caravan earlier than they would like to they decide to stay longer and conduct some more business. He goes takes care of a little bit of business just to be able to pay the bills back at home and then take the profits a lot even back
home to Makkah
the majority of the narrations are the tradition says that no Abu Talib decides to return back to Makkah right then and there from there. From Basra from the monastery of Ohio, he tells the rest of the place. Listen, I have to get back I have something pressing something has come up very urgently. I have to head back home. And he departs from the business caravan take some profits a lot of him straight back to Makkah himself to the safety of Makkah.
There's another account that is mentioned and this is actually mentioned in some of the authentic books of Hadith. And Sira imama Timothy Rahim Allah has mentioned this, and many classical and contemporary scholars have vouched for the authenticity of this narration. However, some other classical scholars have differed with this narration and choose not to take this narration even discuss the validity of this narration and even concede himself in lb Daya when the hire differs from this narration from this tradition, and what that narration what that tradition of imitating me the what it states is that at that point in time,
there are other even some young people in that business caravan. And there's another young boy in that business caravan, who's been brought along who's come along, due to his business
acumen and his business aptitude and the talent and the early ability this one young boy has shown that he decided to bring him along to kind of give him a jumpstart, they decided to let him skip a couple of grades, and just, you know, get an internship kind of early on, and they decided to take him along so you can start learning on the job on to get some real world experience. And this is a young boy
by the name or who would later on be known as by the name of Abu Bakr.
And it kind of works out well, because this other young boy happens to be very good childhood friends. He's very he's buddies with the other young boy that's been brought along by Abu Talib, Muhammad, that these two young boys are really, really good friends.
And so there's another one another young boy in the business caravan by the name of a bucket. But this this young boy who would later be known as Abu Bakar, was brought along, because he shows a lot of talent and ability for business as we know about Abu Bakar de la Juan. He was an amazing businessman.
And then there's another slave and other young boy slave that was brought along to kind of run some errands and do some things, you know, and do some menial tasks along on the business trip. And this is a young Abyssinian African slave by the name of Babylon.
imama Timothy, you mentioned this. And at that point in time, they kind of sit down and I will tell him tells the rest of the business caravan that listen, guys, very regretfully, I have to inform you, I gotta head back. And I will tell him is still somebody they respect a lot. And somebody they would like to have with them while conducting business in a shop. And so they're very, they're not happy about the situation circumstance, like, No, we can't lose you. We need you there to do business, you're very important to our business strategy, we can't lose you is a very crucial critical business trip. You know, that's supposed to get us through till the next season. So we
can't lose you. So what are we going to do I need to get my nephew home.
So like, Look, I know, it seems kind of dangerous. But you know, it's just a couple of days of journey. And along the way, there are a couple of stops, where they can be safe. And we know remember because the police used to take district quite often, they knew all the towns and all the tribes that were along the way and they used to stop that regularly scheduled stops. You know, they had like, like, you know, we have like travel rest areas, travel areas, truck stops, right. So we have these stops that are fixed. And those are good people. They're trustworthy people. There are tribes of ours that are allies. And if our young boys are traveling to their they'll take good care
of them. Don't worry, there'll be alright. And especially if they're by traveling by committee, one child, we would be worried but three of them three young boys. They'll be there for each other they'll manage. There'll be okay. And so mama Timothy actually mentioned the narration which I like I said, in class, some classical and contemporary scholars have authenticated this nation.
That it is the trio of Mohammed Abdullah Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abu Bakar radi Allahu anhu and Bilal radi Allahu anhu. And this was the beginning of,
of a friendship that would last a lifetime.
That's 100 hannula scholars actually mentioned about this, that this connection, this deep connection that was there between these individuals,
between these three people started way early on way back then, when they were still young boys and they bonded in this trip. And such a bond was established between them that never severed and that's why when eventually divine revelation would come. And the prophets a lot of them one of the first few people that he speaks to is his best friend Abu Bakar
that Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu doesn't even pause or think for a second he says and shadow Allah illallah wa shadow Anika Rasulullah and that's exactly the reason why nobody you know after the prophets a lot ism nobody was as passionate about the cause as Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu was that by the end of the second day of prophethood, he had brought seven people to accept Islam. And these were great great kebab Sahaba brought to accept
that there was a reason why when Islam comes in immediately one of the first people to accept Islam is beloved by the Allahu even though he's a slave, and he knows that his life will be in danger if he accepted Islam, and he endures all that torture afterwards. And there's a reason why, beloved, one who gathers up all the money that he can find and goes to the owner of the land. And he says, I want to purchase this slave from you and freeze him. And there's a reason why the prophets lie. Some chose Bilaal as his own personal will other than whether residents are traveling, whether in residence or in travel bit on was is more than that if I need to pray your beloved will call the
abandoned the akarma. There's a reason why he chose Big Island he depended on Billund originally
arena behind Avalon and he will tell Bilal to go call the avant and bring peace and comfort to us
that this connection was established way back then
that this is mentioned by some of the scholars. But like I mentioned that,
you know, some scholars have differed with this both classical and even contemporary, and even cathedra. himolla is one of those classical scholars that differs with this on the bass on the grounds of a few different things. One of the things that he differs with based on that is that this particular narration is mentioned by Abu Musab al Sharia, the Allahu anhu, who would accept Islam later on. So he says, How can I be musala Shari, relate this narration when he accepts Islam in the Medina and period why or how is he relating this? But then there's an answer to that, that this these types of traditions are in Chateau de la Juana. You know the narration in Sahih Bukhari where
it talks about Bible By the way, the beginning of revelation that's narrated by a Chateau de la Juana, how does it Chateau de la Juana relate the narration about the beginning of revelation when she wasn't even alive at that time.
So these types of narrations are called meta sila Sahaba marassi, Lu Sahaba. that these are Moosa narrations meaning it is once a hobby getting it from another Sahabi. But that's a hobby doesn't mention this hobby where he gets it from brother narrates or relates that tradition him or herself, puts it on themselves. So they leave out one of the links in the chain. But again, murase lu sahaabah, are accepted by some scholars of Hadith, because the Sahaba kulu module, the Sahaba, all of them are reliable, and are trustworthy and are authentic in their narrations. So we can trust this a hobby, so when it's a hobby says, the prophets have said this, even though he got it from
another Sahabi, that's okay, that's acceptable in the opinion of majority of scholars. So, there is a counter to this, but even concede also differs with this narration, because he says,
I have trouble kind of grasping the logic of this scenario.
And again, whether or not that is a valid criticism of narration can be debated again. But again, even cathedra hula hula is a scholar of the caliber where he has that legit he has those grounds, he has a legitimate right, he has that scholarship, where he can, you know, speak on these terms. You and I, we can hear a hadith and say, You know what, the logic doesn't add up for me. Nobody cares what we think. All right. Even cathedra han Allah is of that caliber of that status. Nevertheless, even conceded says that there are two narrations we have. One tells us that the Profit System is nine years old, the other cells is 12 years old. Number one, Abu Talib cared for the profits
allottee some such that he wouldn't let the Profit System go with a couple other young boys. Secondly, have a book I don't think a loved one was very close to the prophet SAW some an age. So even if the Prophet says he was 12 years old,
then Abu Bakar himself is 1012 years old.
And bilateral Delano is possibly even younger than that. So how does that exactly add up doesn't work for me, he says. So Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah knows best about the validity of the authenticity of the narration. Nevertheless, to conclude, we know this much for a fact. They arrived there boy da hip sees the prophets a lot. He seldom sees the signs of prophethood all around in on on the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is deeply affected and has full convictions that this is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi salam speaks to the prophets awesome, confirms his suspicions, speaks to the uncle of the Prophet system and says you better be careful. You need to be very
careful where you take your nephew, I understand you don't want to leave him I understand that you're connected to him. I understand that he's very emotionally attached to you. But you have to be very careful where you take your nephew.
Because other people might know what I know.
And I can vouch for what their intentions will be with this child. I'm you're just in shock and awe. I'm here to just be in the company of the child, I just want to sit as close as possible to this child. I just want to rub the back of the child I just want to touch make some physical contact with the child and say I was in the company of the Messenger of Allah.
But I can't vouch for the intentions of others,
and what their agenda what their motives will be. So you'd be very, very careful in some way somehow based on the different variations but like I said, majority of the books of Sierra do mentioned the fact that we'll call it takes it upon himself to take the profits a lot from back to the safety of Makkah, and brings them back to Makkah. And this is that very famous, well known incident from the childhood of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam known as the interaction. The meeting with boo Hara arrived. Boo Boo Hara the monk. All right.
And when the profits a lot of a sudden met him there.
And of course, you know he continues to grow and continues to remain in the care of Abu Talib, a very, very
devout, a very, you know, well mannered a very dignified honorable, respectable individual.
And of course, the prophets allottee some receives very good tarbiyah at the hands of Ableton Live, and the prophets, Allah him as he continues to grow now displays more and more exemplary character. And he really now he's starting to become a teenager at this point, and he really starts to come into his own, he really starts to display amazing character, and amazing behavior, and starts to become an exemplary young man in this society, and more and more people are impressed by the character by the dignity by the honor of this young man, this teenager.
And he's displays he has just this natural aversion to the use of activity that a lot of other young men they indulge in, he doesn't indulge in any of the inappropriate activities of young men. You know, throughout time, this is a timeless fact, young men throughout time, when they grow to the age of puberty and adolescence start to notice the opposite gender start to show a lot of interest in the opposite gender, and many times unfortunately, start to behave very inappropriately or speak very inappropriately about the opposite gender, and let alone the times of jania.
All right, and we definitely understand what that's like today.
But the profits, a lot of them naturally would have a, he had a huge aversion to that type of culture, he would completely just as soon as the boys would start to indulge in that type of talk. And talking about her and talking about her, and noticing her and looking at her, the processing would immediately separate himself from the rest of the boys. He would forget about saying those things, he wouldn't even listen to those things, he would just go and sit separately, he would distance himself from the rest of the voice
and the Profit System start to show this conduct in his character. And naturally, people in Mecca started to trust the profits a lot. Hmm. So when they wanted, you know, maybe a little bit of business here and there, they needed somebody to run some errands, they needed somebody to go deliver this money from here to there, like hey, you know him full on full on this money, you know, like a courier, like a quick bank, bank transaction, something we do online, now, you need to get some money too quickly to him. Right. And so back in the day, you would just have a courier, you would take somebody and you would hand the money off to them, and you would tell them, you know, go
and deliver this money to them. But you have to be very careful because you're giving a good chunk of change to somebody and you didn't want him to disappear with that money. So the profits a lot even started becoming the go to guy for those types of scenarios. They all knew I look for Muhammad, He's a good kid. He's a trustworthy kid. And so very early on from his early teenage years, the reputation of a sodic amine began to be established. And this is where we leave off today with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his early teens. May Allah subhanaw taala increase us all in the love of Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Subhana Allah He will be hungry he
subhanak Allahu Hambrick. Mashallah La ilaha illa Anta
