Sheila continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a Sierra Nevada.
Previously, we kind of left off in the somewhat the middle of a topic. What we were talking about in the previous session was the after we discussed in the last few sessions, actually, the beginning of Revelation and the immediate aftermath. And in fact, we talked about the first few revelations upon the Prophet sallallahu sallam. We then moved on to talk about some of the early the early community of Islam, if you will, the early Muslims, the early converts to Islam. And in the course of that, of course, at detail at length, we talked about Khadija Northey a lot more on the job interview Ellen, Nadia Allahu anha, the beloved wife of the Prophet ceylonese, and I'm the mother of the believers,
and we pretty much dedicated the previous session solely to talking about her. At the end of the previous session, we started to talk about who is basically dubbed or who is
considered to be rather I should say, the second convert to Islam, who was even a Vitaly radi Allahu anhu Ali, the son of Abu Talib, who was the cousin of the prophets, Allah a cinema Of course, there was a large age gap, a large age difference between the two. And just to kind of rehash and kind of get us back up to speed where we left off. What we talked about last time was our leader, the long line who there are different variations. Some say he was seven Some say he was nine some narrations that he was 10.
So the more authentic narrations, and majority of the scholars of Sierra seem to be
leaning towards the fact and pretty much seem to be in agreement with the fact that he was 10 years old at the time of the beginning of Revelation.
The situation that I talked about that I'll quickly briefly summarize here is that the Prophet of Allah salon he said when he was at the age of 40,
the prophets of Allah Islam, of course, was a businessman. He was made to Khadija rhodiola, who is a very very Mashallah successful businesswoman. And he along with his uncle, bass, radi Allahu anhu, who was also well to do he had not, of course, accepted Islam at this point. We're talking very early on, in fact, we were talking about the before revelation, Ambassador, the long long was also well to do so what ended up happening and transpiring at that time was the profits a lot of a sudden went with our best are the Allahu anhu, to a Bhutanese who was a leader of the tribe, managing the affairs of the family and the tribe. But at the same time, it will dawn It was a very simple man,
and a man with very limited financial means. Because of this, they went to Ableton Live and they said, Why don't you let us help you out a little bit. Basically, let us you don't take care of some of your younger children. So we'll take care of them financially. We can house them in our homes as well. And we can help you out a little bit as a family. And I talked about how this shows the social family consciousness of the prophets a lot. He said that he was someone who was very attuned, he was somebody who was very considerate and very concerned about his family affairs, and he kept up with what was going on with family members. So Jaffa or the Allahu Jaffa novena Vitaly was given into the
care of Ibis, the uncle Arbus while I live in a Vitaly, but only the youngest son, who was you know, probably six, seven years old at this time, was given into the care of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he lived in the home of the Prophet ceylonese him for a few years. That's when the beginning of revelation occurred. Now what we talked about last time was how did you know the lover I knew except Islam, how did he convert? So we had talked about in the story of Khadija that Khadija radi Allahu Allah used to pray with the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam they would pray together. And I talked about how this this established the base of a family, not just the family, but the
spiritual foundations of a family, establishing family and spirituality simultaneously. And they both go hand in hand, they would pray together, and I leave it alone line who's some of the narration say that the revelation started on a Monday. And I talked about this in the very beginning sessions of the zero. When we talked about the birth of the prophets a lot. He said, I'm born with a Yeoman listening Yeoman, his name that the prophets allowed him was given Prophethood. He was given his mission on Monday on a Monday. So the revelation began on Monday.
And some of the narrations of the Sierra say that Alina The Allahu Allahu Salama. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a Yama thalassa that by Tuesday
You know, the Allahu anhu was a Muslim, and praying with the prophets, Allah, Allah. So some generation say he accepted Islam the very next day by then by as soon as the day had passed, he was already listen. So what basically happened was that the prophets, a lot of them came back. He didn't know the language and accepted Islam immediately. And they began to pray together. Now I laid out the long, long lives in the same home, a 10 year old boy, a very intelligent, a very bright, 10 year old boy. So there's really not much you can get by a very smart, intelligent, bright, observant, 10 year old. So he immediately saw them praying and he said, What is this?
What are you doing? And we talked about the narration that he told us that the prophets Allah decent I'm told him, and I talked about the narration details that the prophets Eliza explains them what he's doing. He didn't say, Oh, it's a child who were doing something Oh,
he didn't dismiss him. Use a child. We often discuss we talk we ask about how to educate our own children about Islam. Well, the prophets Allah Islam teaches us, he explained it to him Dino logging Lizzie estafa Lee nuptse he Baba, Biggie lucilla, who further ruka
la sharika, who were Illa about that he will call from below to reserve that the Prophet ceylonese him said this is a religion that allows chosen for himself. And he has sent His messengers with this religion. So I call you to Allah alone. There are no partners for him. And I call you to worship Allah alone. And I call you to denounce these idols that everyone else worships like a lot, a lot when erza
I don't even know he taught him It shows you his intelligence. And when you engage even a child in an intelligent discussion, the child can oftentimes surprise you. He said how smart he is. This is something I've never heard about ever before, for less to be taught in Amazon, how to be about Alibaba. So I really can't tell you anything. I can't really tell you what I feel about it. Until I first talked to and consult my father about
the profits a lot. He sent him because of the delicate stage of the message that it was in the profits of Luddism, to the leader of the alarm, I knew that if you don't want to accept this message, I completely understand I just preferred that you don't talk about it to anyone else's right now, just because it's not the right time yet. So I needed the loved one who respected the wishes of the prophets a lot he sent him
a little deal of money man Who says that?
I basically waited one night.
I waited one night. And then that night, Allah subhanaw taala put the truth of Islam into my heart. So he went in the morning to the prophets a lot of him the next morning, and he said Mother up on a Mohammed what would you propose? I do? Oh Mohammed. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to Shalu Allah, Allah illallah wa una de Cana who would like for Bella Rosa, whatever Amina and Dad, I propose that you bear witness and give testimony that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah alone, he has no partners. You denounce these idols, Latin RZA. And you basically distance yourself from all the other things that people worship other than Allah. I needed the Allahu anhu complied
and accepted Islam. And this is how I laid out the allowable angle became Muslim. Now I needed the Allahu Allah was fearful of what the response of his father would be. He was afraid he was fearful, as any child would be, adults would be. So he wasn't sure what his father would say how he would respond, how he would react as a child. So he decided to keep it secret to keep it quiet. And it actually says that he waited. Normally he would you know, pretty much every single day go home and visit his parents and things like that. But he actually stayed for a few weeks without visiting back home just you know, saying I'm been very busy doing this doing that he actually went a few weeks
because he was so nervous about telling his father, some of the narrations even say that, you know, the Allahu anhu accepted Islam a year after revelation began
a year later. But this is something that is rejected, because we have other narrations that tell us that the very next day he was Muslim. How do we reconcile the two because Allah the loved one, being a child, kept his Islam very, very quiet. As a child to begin with, he didn't have like a lot of public interaction with other adults. So there was really no way for anyone to know that he accepted Islam. And on top of that, being a child, he kept his Islam more quiet, more private. So it was only a year later, two people actually realize that I'll leave it alone who I knew had joined the ranks of these believers in these Muslims. So now what exactly happened? So the narration says that I
needed the Allahu anhu there's actually a narration that I've mentioned here. It's a very popular, Lee mentioned narration mentioned in many of the books of Sierra, even as haka Venetia. Many of the books of Sierra that are famous
Who was a man at that time? He was the brother of Elijah has been the case who was a very powerful leader in Arabia at that time. He says that come to Emma antigen for them to Mina, a Yemen hedge. I was a businessman so I came to me now during the season of hedge to do business. That was a marketplace I came to do business, but Canada best winner of the muttalib mo antigen. So I bass the son of Abdulmutallab, the uncle of the process. It was also a businessman who observed women who are who I came to kind of do some business with him, sell him some stuff, buy some stuff from him, do some trading with him, for Vina Anna who is her Raja Raja means Eva. So while we were sitting there,
a man came out from a tent for karma use only digital cavity. So he started he faced in the direction of the Kaaba and he started to pray. Through Mukherjee, the merchant for karma to Sally, a woman came out and started to pray with him in the narration more other nations which are all compiled here. Say that he, this woman came out and stood behind the prophets a lot, and began to pray along with him. Well, how Raja gulaman Fatima you Salima Who? And a boy came out and stood to the rights of the profits allowed SMB emini and started to pray with him. And that should sound very familiar to us. That if it's two people praying to men praying, then you send to the right, the
followers answer the right, the leader stands on the left, and a woman would stand behind. And so this is how they started to pray. And they were all praying for Petunia bass. So there are two narrations one says that he questioned him, he said, Madhava Deen, what are these people doing? What is this religion?
About what he said in the deen monodrama Hua, excuse me, the man says that this religion I see these people practicing. Well, I don't know what it is is not familiar to us. For carnamah for Colorado, Mohammed Abdullah, yes, I'm a la sala, who have a loved one who said that this is Mohammed Abdullah. He presumes that Allah has sent him as a messenger.
We're in the kaluza Kesava case on siesta Ali. And he says that the treasures of the emperors of Rome and Persia will be opened for him and his followers. Why is he in Morocco Khadija who led I'm honored to be here. This is his wife Khadija radi Allahu Allah May Allah be pleased with her who has believed in him and follows him while having a holiday even though I'm here.
I'm gonna be and this boy that you see praying with him. This is his cousin from his uncle. I live in a Vitaly who has also believed in him for color or faith or faith basically says for a 10 equal to a man to Yama even for going to akuna Thani Sania. He says I wish I would have believed on that day. Because then I would have been the second man like the second believer, there was a child and a woman he says If only I would have understood that day I could have been the second person.
I could have been one of the early people to believe.
Another narration very similar to this basically says that same narration from our own faith. This is narrated by Eben Jedi in a poverty. He says that the prophets a lot of whom came out face towards the table outward face towards the cobbler, towards the Kaaba, and he started to pray. The boy came and started to pray to the right of him. The woman came and stood behind him and started to pray and then he describes a prayer and I talked about this in the previous session we oftentimes assume we perceive we connect the prayer with Alyssa will Mirage what we fail to understand is that the five times the daily five times
that was at the time of travel allowance from the very beginning salon was something that previous profits frayed look at it talks about this Marina de Salaam in Surah number 19. So Maria McKenna yet will Allah will be solid he was Maryam was told by I was out of town I was Judy when it came out around Cyrene. But we saw it was sold worker Omar Hakim, so so I was praying previously even very similar to the format in which we pray it. So he described for Akasha farakka, Allahu la Malema. So the man went into the pool.
And the young boy in the woman went to record with Him
forever I shop for hula Mama. So the man stood up after a coup and the child and the woman stood up with him.
For her shabu surgeon for surgery for such a demo, and then the man fell into suju put his face on the ground. And both of them the man and the woman also went into servitude along with him. So then he says yeah, my boss
said our buses is really remarkable what's going on here.
I'm gonna lean for color at every man. Haha. So Abbas's, because do you know who this is? Sheila I don't know. Sarah Mohammed, not
Mohammed Abdullah bin Abdul muttalib
This is my name. This is my nephew. I busted this my nephew, Mohammed Abdullah.
He said, Do you know who the boy is? He said, No, I don't know. He said, I live in a beat on him. I mean, he's related to me as well. Then he said that you know who the woman is? He said, Of course I don't. He said, this is Khadija been to huainan Zoda to ignacy. This is the wife of my nephew here. This is his wife. What have I had destiny? And Naropa carrabba sama, Amara who be having a liter of money. And he says that your Lord the Lord of the sky, he's the one who's commanded him to do what you see them doing. What he will log you.
Out of the cooloola Kula Hayden, Allah has a dinheiro.
And he says, I swear by Allah, I don't know anyone other than these three, who is worshipping according to this religion today. I don't know anyone other than these three who follows this religion today shows you how early this was, and that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So one thing that I wanted to talk about, I wanted to address about wanting to address basically as a reflection based on this
is it's very important to understand
how in what, you know the prophets, a lot of them did with people who accepted Islam. First and foremost is talking about the child. I talked about it in previous session, about as a family. That's a process and these are the loved one. And they prayed together.
And that solidified their base that was quality, time equality activity that they engage in together to pray as a family. I live in a Vitaly, but the language is basically a member of the family. But on top of that the child again, what does the prophets allowed him to do with the child they pray together?
They pray together. And so it's very, very important that we learn this lesson from the very early days. One of the first things that the prophets a lot of some instilled in acted, he demonstrated was for us to pray together as families, to pray with our wives to pray with our children to pray together as a home and a family is from directly from the Sunnah of the Prophet ceylonese him at the most delicate and fragile of times, the beginning of Revelation, a battle of the loved one was saying, I don't know anyone else on this earth. Aside from these three who followed this religion of Muhammad, I don't anyone other than Mohammed, his wife, Khadija and this boy in their care it,
that's it, but they prayed together.
So we talked about preserving our Deen preserving our religion, Salah is very important in that regard.
And of course, to not take it for granted. What's important in terms of engaging in that slot, is teaching them how to pray, not just the ritualistic aspect of prayer, not just a ritualistic aspect of prayer, but make prayer something we saw how the profits allow them engaged over the long run when intelligent dialogue, a 10 year old boy, he's explaining the religion to him. So explain to your children teach them how to pray properly, teach them what to read, and what it means when they read it. And then praying together as a family. The other thing I wanted to talk about, and we'll see this in the following narrations, when we go on to talk about some of the other early converts
to Islam, the very first activity, the very first act, the very first activity, the very first education, that the prophets Allah assembled, engage a new convert to Islam, in the very first thing, engage him in was prayer, praying with them. Now, obviously, if somebody just accepted Islam, then you can just say, all right, kindness, Allah,
Allah, I mean, it doesn't work like that, you have to have to tell them, okay, this what we're going to do, we're going to pray like this. And then we do this. And then we read that, and then we read this. And this, what that means. And this, what this means, and this is how we do this. And this, how we do that. And you got to teach him right to be able to pray with them. What we see right here is the very first thing the process in them would engage in new convert in was solid. It was solid was the prayer. And in order to engage them in prayer, you have to teach them how to pray. So the very first thing he taught them was some at the very first thing he taught him was prayer.
Now compare that to how we, as a community, let alone individuals, but even as a community, we were you would figure out these the foolishness of individuals is overcome oftentimes by the collective. But a lot of times, unfortunately, it the foolishness of individuals can be compounded as a collective. What do we as a community engage in you convert to Islam in? Where is the first piece of information we impart to them? Where's the very first thing we tell them to do?
was the very first thing.
I mean, and this is a topic that's been covered, but nevertheless, it doesn't. It doesn't hurt for us to kind of intelligently from the seat or take this into consideration. I mean, we've probably all heard the horror stories.
Maybe unfortunately, we've been unfortunate enough to even witness some of them from everything to talking asking them if they're married.
Well, did your husband did your wife fix up to some? No, that's it, you have to leave them. Like really, I just said the Shahada five minutes ago. And now you're telling me that I have to give up my whole life, changing their name, growing a beard, put this hijab on, you have to wear a robe. You have to do this, you have to do that. You have to go and get circumcised, right? Like pretty much anything and everything you can imagine. I'm not trying to mock any of these things. hotma is from the sun and of all the Gambia. And we can make fun of any of those things. But there is a time and a place in the process of everything. You can tell a grown man five minutes after he just accepted a
song Debbie, by the way.
Snip snip. I mean, that's that's what you that's, it's terrifying. Just the prospect of it is terrifying. From everything to I have friends from when I was a young boy, I was a teenager, I used to go to the masjid. I remember other young teenagers high schoolers coming in accepting Islam. When it was very, very rare, it was very rare, didn't occur very commonly, very often. And the first thing they're being told is, so your parents, you know, they're they're there. Now you have to understand your parents are Kufa and all the food they eat is haram. And so what you're gonna have to do is, and this kid, it's a 14 year old kid who just accepted Islam.
And so you have to understand that the very first thing that prophets a lot of some did with a new convert to Islam was give them a relationship with Allah.
there are for anyone who is getting bent out of shape by this. Oh, what are you trying to say? We're not supposed to tell them to practice. Nobody said that. But there's a process. There's a process. The very first thing they need is they need a relationship with Allah. And Salaam is that relationship is the basis the foundation of their relationship with Allah. But that's really difficult.
Because now somebody who's never read a lick a word of Arabic ever before in their entire lives. For them to be able to pray is going to take a lot of teaching. It's going to take a lot of time, it's going to take hours and hours, days and days to teach them how to pray. Even the AutoCAD even the physical movements will take forever, let alone what you read, let alone what it means. Well, yeah, exactly. That's the point.
So how many of us individually, how many of us, as a community are willing to take out Days of Our Lives, take out three the next three days, the next week, for two hours a day, let me take out time every single day, to teach this person how to pray, how many of us are willing to do that.
I haven't even touched on the issue where we start to ideologically, like grapple. It's like It's like a loose ball on the football field. It's like a fumble.
May Allah subhanaw taala. Forgive all of us as an omen as a community. The most horrible thing I've ever seen is when somebody accepts Islam, and everybody in the community who has a particular ideological affiliation, basically sees a fumble. Basically, he's a loose ball on the football field, whoever picks up the ball, it's there, they get possession of the football. So now let me convert them over to my side will either be law, Islam is our side. And this person already converted to Islam.
That's the most terrible thing. That's I'm not even going to touch on that. Because that shouldn't even have to be touched on. That's how disgusting that is. But as a community, how many of us, do we have a system in place? Okay, individually, how many of us are willing to embrace his brother, embrace his sister, invite them over to our home, make them feel like a part of the family and then put in quality time to teach them how to pray? Oh, it's very tedious work. very tedious work. Allahu Akbar.
Allahu Akbar. Hmm.
It's very tedious work. But how many of us are willing to put in that time?
Let alone everything else that comes up. Okay, fine. individually. We're all busy. We all got a lot going on.
We're really busy. We had a lot going on, even though yes, some of those things are good things are responsibilities. But there comes a certain point in time where we I can't really yell at you for that. I have to go and look at the look in the mirror myself. And I have to really check myself. If I like to call myself a Muslim and Islam and a diary and a call of duty to the religion and let's make some sacrifice. Let's put in the time. Okay, fine. Individually, we can as a community Do we have a system in place. We have a fantastic system to organize a potluck.
We got Google documents and email list and Facebook groups. All you want to do a potluck we can get it together in 10 minutes flat. We can arrange a potluck in 10 minutes and we'll have every type of international potluck be well food from 18 different countries.
Can we have a system in place to educate somebody who just accepted Islam on how to pray Salah?
We can't, we don't have a system.
This was the, this was the prophets, a lot of things first concern.
These are the law accepted Islam. Let's pray together. We teach you how to pray. I don't even know he taught me but 10 year old boy accepts the song. Come on, son. Let's go pray. Let me teach you how to pray, let's pray together. And they all stand up and they operate together. So much so that the early exposure to Islam, even the close family members of the prophets, a lot of them are realizing that they've accepted Islam that this religion is growing. That is the religion that they're preaching and learning and teaching to one another, by means of them praying. That's how they're all understanding that's all there are realizing that's how they're all finding out exactly what's going
So anyways, to continue on.
The next person to accept Islam was Abu Bakar of the alamanda
Abubakar de la mano was the next one to accept a song.
There's a very again, I cannot read this from a collection of I read this from a book of Sierra or similarly read. what some of the classical historians whether some of the scholars have written in the books of Sierra about
from the daddy have tabari excuse me, it's mentioned in the study of poverty in another books of Sierra how it describes the Islam of Abu Bakr radi Allahu wa. ala we're overdue and SLM in a region in Harare, Abu Bakar, acidic rhodiola and actually, before I talk about the some of Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu, I almost forgot almost overlooked this detail, the next person to accept Islam. According to many of the scholars and historians who have reconciled a lot of the narrations you have to understand some of the narrations are saying no, the first one was it. Some are saying first one was Khadija some are saying the first one was Abu Bakar. Some of them are saying the first one
was aided by hydrophone because basically from the change where they got them who was the first person that someone was exposed to their Islam they were exposed to, but many of the scholars and historians have reconciled all of them and the sequence they give us is the third person to accept Islam was a dude who had etha Brody llamando zaven haritha is very briefly His story is that he Zaid the son of had a thought he was a young boy, his father was a leader of a tribe. And he had gone out just kind of wandered a little bit away from home as a boy playing or you know, doing whatever exploring whatever little boys you know, they kind of wander away from home doing and there was a
caravan there were some people kind of passing by must have been some bad people. So they see a boy kind of wandering around on his own. So they snatched him up human trafficking, basically, this is pre Islam. A lot of these, a lot of these existed at that time, unfortunately, like it does in the world today as well. So he got snatched up, he got kidnapped, he got picked up and got brought to him again sold as a slave. He was sold as a slave to some of the narration say one of the cousins of Khadija lohana bought him as a slave kingdom,
who later on gave him to Khadija de la Mancha as a gift some of narration say at the time of her marriage to the prophets a lot he sent him
after some time Khadija la de la and I basically gave him to the prophets, Allah has been in life, they pretty much shared everything that they have. But nevertheless, he pretty much gave him to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, because he saw that he was a very good boy and the prophet SAW Selim, pretty much would treat him like a son. We treat him like a child, and he would go around with the process them he would, he would take him with him on business, he will take him out with him to run errands, kind of like how you would take your younger brother or your son with you pretty much everywhere you go. And so Khadija Nadella and I saw that they didn't develop like this father son
type of relationship, so she pretty much said, you do with him whatever you want. I don't consider him a slave of mine anymore. It's your decision, whatever you do with him. And shortly after a revelation came in Khadija Modi, Allahu Allah and I live in Abbey Talib rhodiola. Anwar praying with the prophets, a lot of them. They've been had, he thought was also exposed to this. He also asked the promises of exactly what is going on and accepted Islam and joined into them, praying with them. And the narrations actually talked about this. Now, shortly thereafter,
as simultaneously there's another story going on. So while this whole story in Macau is playing out, there's another story going on. The other story going on is Zaid bin Javi, Thoreau the Allahu anhu. His father Haditha is looking for him. He's searching for his son. He's looking for his son desperately trying to find his son. He was very beloved to me was very attached to him. And he's desperately trying to find his son and locate exactly where he went and what happened to him and what transpired with him, and it even mentioned some poetry that he used to recite, basically longing for him calling for him searching for him. And
eventually, it said that his poetry was so powerful. It was so famous that it actually kind
caught on. It became popularly known they got caught on and people heard about this and the story of this man named haritha. Looking for his son named Zaid kind of became a little bit of a legend and kind of became it kind of went viral, if you will, like what we would say going viral, it went viral, this famous this very epic story of this, you know, Father, this is emotionally tormented father, Heidi, looking desperately for his son, beloved sons as the story went viral. So much so that the news reached Makkah. And when the news reached Makkah, then some of the people in Makkah, recognize, okay, this boy's aid.
I wonder if this is the boy. And so we've asked him, do you remember your dad's name? And he goes, Yeah, I'm I'm from originally I was from here, and this would happen to me and I think my dad's name was Haditha this this this he told them in the news reached back to his father that we found your son, he's in Mecca. Now the dad and the uncle came rushing Jamaica came rushing to Makkah first thing to basically scoop up the son and take him back home. When they arrived in Makati founder, okay, he's in the care of a man named Mohammed Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
they approach the Prophet sallallahu Sallam with great praises,
And the professor some of course, even being deserving of them. They said you are the grandson of Abdulmutallab, our great leader. I've talked about this in some of the early
excuse me some of the early senior sessions, how I've done metallic was like this legendary leader of the of all of Arabia. He was admired he was looked up to. So they said, You're the grandson of Abdulmutallab, you come from noble lineage. And we've heard only good things about you. They call you a saw that I mean, here in your city, please return our son to us. Let him come back home with us. We realize that he was a slave that was given to you. We will pay you whatever you want. We just want to take our son back.
And the prophets, Elijah moved by the father his emotions. He said I'll do I'll do one better for you. But at the same time, the prophets a lot easier understanding whose aid was what was in his heart, and also understanding and realizing the relationship that they had developed.
He said, I'll do one better than you. I'll give you something better. I will cause aid. And I will let him do whatever he wants.
I won't only just hand him back over to you. I'll let David make the decision.
By this time some of the narrations mentions either the loved one needs to be like a teenager, basically a man at this point. So he said I'll let Dave decide what he wants to do.
Susie either the loved one was called
and he said that is this your father? Is this your uncle? And he said yes, I recognize him. That's my dad. That's my uncle.
And of course, you know, they must have embraced and reacquainted themselves and made sure everybody was okay. Then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Zaid, son, we got a matter we have to sell. They're here to take you back home. I told him you're a young man now. I'm gonna let you do whatever you want. I'm gonna let you decide whatever you want to do. And he said, I would like to stay here with Muhammad Rasul Allah ceylonese. His father said, Son,
you're a slave.
you'll choose slavery over your family.
You choose slavery over your family, said Father, I have seen something. I've experienced something with this man. Muhammad Rasul Allah is and I will not find anywhere else in this world. Of course, he was talking about Islam Prophethood and the Buddha rissalah for and why he
said, found something here that isn't that I won't find anywhere else. I value what I have here.
I'm very grateful to be able to see you and meet you and let you know I'm okay and know that you're okay. But I don't want to leave the company of a home it's a lot easier.
So the father seeing this, trying to understand it but distraught, as you can imagine,
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was so concerned about the father's emotional plight, but also so moved
by the amount of zebra the Allahu anhu that the prophets allowed him called Zaid, he embraced him. And he said, don't worry. Yeah, how do you say Don't worry. From here on out today. He's not my slave. He's my son.
I not only free him from slavery from the bonds of slavery, but I embrace him as a son I adopt him as my own.
And he became known as they'd been hammered from that day on.
And this is the story of David or the loved one was this acceptance of a song and the father being very happy must have stayed for a few days reconnected with either the loved one I knew and eventually went back home and was very content to leave him with the profits allowed him because now he knew he was left with family. That's either of your loved one who was safe and he was okay because he was amongst family. This is something that we'll talk about later.
In the serum, so I don't want to jump ahead of myself. But what does oftentimes get brought up here in the books of Sita is some of the rules and regulations that would be revealed later in the muddiman period,
that basically are the only ABA in who accept or in the law, that Allah subhanaw taala would later send down the command to Revelation and similar to
that call them by their father's name, because that is more fair and just in the eyes in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala. What that means is that if a child who has been adopted his lineage is known, then you should not change his lineage. So he was he had been had it and that was known that he was at the center of Haifa. So he should not be called Zaid, the center. Mohammadi should be called the son of hydrosol.
He should be called that some some, you know, a lot of the early early translations of this era or of books of fear, or even books of Tafseer to the English language. So I'm not talking about classical I'm talking about, you know, 100 years ago, 5060 years ago, 100 years ago, 150 years ago, when a lot of the classical material was starting to be translated over to the English language. A lot of it was done a couple of 100 years back was done by orientalist who were not fully familiar with the Islamic tradition. We're not familiar well versed in Islamic law completely, from a classical perspective, or it was done by professors of the English language, who are found in places
like Egypt, and India, and in other places, parts of the Muslim world. Some of these translation last 100 years, 5060 years was done by people who were professors of or translators of the English language and the translated into the English language. What happened as a consequence of this? What happened because of these factors, was some early books of Tafseer. If you read the Tafseer, some of the law in these early English translations, if you read early books of early translations of cedaw, English language, or some books of fixed classical books that were translated into the English language, you find a huge gross mistranslation, a gross terrible mis translation. And some of you
might even know this off of your top of your head as the ruling on the issue that you might have read, you might have heard that adoption is not allowed in Islam.
adoption is not permissible actually, was looking through an early English translation and early English ceto book that was actually written by a non Muslim historian who wrote a book on the life of the Prophet of Islam. And it said that the story of a descent of Hadith later on, it would be revealed in a muddiman period that adoption was no longer allowed or permissible in Islam, and that's what you might have heard, which might have seen that's absolutely incorrect.
absolutely incorrect. adoption is permissible within Islam. It is allowed within Islam. And somebody could even argue that if it's in regards to IE a team, then it is actually recommended in a highly rewardable act.
Alright, the reason why this misunderstanding occurs because of the Arabic terminology.
The Arabic terminology is at Habana at Ebony.
Tibet money basically means to make someone your son, but it comes from the word even means to claim someone as your biological son.
See difference? The word Tibetan he that people translated as adoption and where it said like a Jew to Tibet, even Islam,
to me is not permissible in Islam. They said adoption is not allowed in Islam. Wrong, to me means to claim someone as your biological son is not allowed in Islam.
kasana tullia Team
kafala truly a team, which basically means to take care of an orphan
is a great rewardable act. I know a cafeteria team can attain the profits. A lot of them said me and someone who takes care of an orphan takes the responsibility of an orphan, or like these two like these two fingers.
That's a reward.
That's a reward. So it depends on how we exactly translate. And adoption doesn't necessarily mean that you in fact, the word adoption means that you are clearly when you say someone is your adopted son, you are clearly saying he's not my biological son. He's my adopted son. So this is a lack of familiarity with the Arabic language or the English language.
So the some of the orientalist who translated we're not familiar with some of the Arabic terminology, and some people who translated it, we're not fully familiar with the English language and what did we end up with? We ended up with a big ol mess that we've basically been explaining. I remember this question being asked for last 30 years growing up here in America 30 plus years. But that's the ruling of
matters. So adoption is allowed. It's rewarding actually. It's, it's a rewardable act. It's a very noble effort,
but not claiming someone as your biological son. That is not permissible. And later on when that command was revealed, then the process of self proclaimed nobody calls aide Zayed bin Mohammed anymore. His name is aid even though they didn't know haritha. They'd been hard with as a designer, however, and actually, the narration says that Xavier the long run was so sad
about not his name, not being affiliated with the name of the profits on cinema anymore, of course, for underscore on command of allies Command of Allah. So he didn't argue but he was just sad and that constantly, he was associated with the process of them. That then he became known as a Mullah Mohammed.
Zaid molar Mohammed Mola basically was a term that would be used if you had a relationship with someone. If you had a very close family like relationship with someone, somebody would be somebody planted specifically in classical Arabic In ancient Arabia, it would be used if somebody freed a slave.
If somebody's free to save, then they would be known as each other's Mo Lab, that he had a family like relationship. He used to be a slave he used to live in his house, he belonged to him, but when he freed him, now they would be known as each other's molar. So Zaid Mola, Mohammed's a close associate of the Prophet telavi Center, and that's when he became popularly known as, but that was the third person to accept this song, but he was a slave at this time. So the narration as I was reading, it basically says, that will over luminary Java open luminescent I mean originally for Abubakar acidic rhodiola han that the first one from the men free men to accept Islam. Was everyone
kind of the law. No, there are a lot of narrations in the classical books of Hadith, and Sira, which talks about, excuse me, which talks about
being the first one to accept Islam.
And the reason this is, is because he was the first free man, I
mean, he was the first public person, everything else was in the home. What is otherwise I need a boy living in the home as a slave. So first person outside of the home was Abubakar de la Juana. And that's why he is mentioned as first one. Why Islam mukana and farm in Islamic mathematical and the scholars they write that his his thumb was very him accepting some was very beneficial to the religion at that time. His Ghana Southern man, because he was a leader of his people who's very respected. What he said feel courageous makara man, and he was a he was he was a prominent person who was respected. He was a leader amongst Quraysh, who was honored and dignified. Well, Sahiba
Malian he was actually a very wealthy person with that he attended ILA Islam, not only that, but he was a very motivated color to Islam. He was motivated to share the message of Islam with people what kind of Mohammed Baba
and he was loved by the people. He was respected by the people. Yes, yep, Zulu manaphy ba Attila he Rasulullah he, and he would he would later on go on to freely spend all of his money and all of his resources in the obedience of a lion is messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
In his heart writes,
that literally a day or two after the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came back and this whole process started
Abubakar acidic radi Allahu Allah Rasool Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
he met the prophets Allah for call Hakuna Matata poo Qureshi Muhammad min Turkic Min turcica Ali hatena he says Is it true Muhammad wa Qureshi are saying about you leaving our idols, but this V caribou, Lana, and that you say that we are foolish for worshipping these idols? What that feeling what the Phoenix Urbana, and that you reject a religion of our forefathers for color Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi cinema Bella? Of course, absolutely. One other narration says that a Buddha could have told the prophets a lot. Isn't that what is it all, Muhammad, that I see you leaving the gatherings of our people? I mean, seeing you coming to the meetings, I haven't seen you showing up
to the council meetings. You seem to kind of be distant for a few days. What's going on with you? And that's when the prophets a lot of them said in the Rasulullah he went to bu I remember messenger of God and His Prophet. Botha neelu Bonilla Salah who and he has sent me to spread and to deliver his message. Well, they're okay in a lot even. And I call you to Allah with the truth for lucky in the hulan
because I swear by God that is the truth. The ruqayyah Baba Can I call you or boubakeur in Allahu Allah alone, la sharika who there are no partners for him when I tabuteau later who and do not work
Should anyone other than Him? Well more Allah to Allah wa T. And basically relationships will be established based on the obedience to Allah
will corralejo Quran and then the Prophet system recited the Quran that was revealed to him he recited abubaker for them, you can refer them don't care about karate Lavanya did not hesitate nor did he reject for Islam, aka bill Islam, he accepted Islam and he rejected the idols. Well, hello,
Islam, and he left all the idols, all those other things that people worshipped other than Allah, and he attested to the truth of Islam. What Raja Abu Bakar Sadiq Khan and he returned back from there a firm believer, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in many inauthentic narration, that the prophets a lot of them later on would tell the Muslims and the Muslims remaining he would tell them mad they're out to a hidden Elon Islami. Never ever did I call anyone to Islam in Canada in the vuca term, without doing one of our own. Except that a person hesitated. That person thought that person took some time. Let me sleep on it. Let me think about it. Let me chew on it.
anytime anyone Never did I accept it did I invite anyone to accept it took some time to think about it to process it. illa abubaker. Except for aboubaker.
Ma, aka ma n who hailed as a cartoon. He did not back away from it when I mentioned him. Well, I thought that a fee. Nor did he have any doubts in it. He did not wait a moment. Nor did he doubt what I was telling him.
And part of the reason for this. Part of the reason the first reason for this is this is why he's able because
this is a level of faith that he had. This is the level of amount of work or a loved one, a second factor that cannot be ignored because he part of the objective here in the cedaw. In this chronicling of this era, is to humanize the prophets a lot. Hmm. We have to understand I talked about it in the childhood of the prophets, Allah, He said that there are narrations that tell us about the prophets a lot. He said, I'm an advocate of the loved one I knew being very good friends, as early as when they were 10 years old.
They had known each other for 30 plus years. They were best friends.
So if anyone knew the prophets a lot, he said him it was kind of a long, you know, one way you could say, well, he was his best friend, of course he's gonna accept.
But at the same time, at the same time, you know, like we see politicians today.
When we see politicians, they try to create and craft an identity for them a campaign for them. All right, we got this in the past that we got to kind of cover up and we got this and we got to highlight this. And we got to build this campaign and we got to build this identity around this. You know, we craft personalities, craft identities, market people, when I add the beloved familia, the villa, but if the profit salons in mind, something to hide, if he was lying, if he was making this up,
then what would actually serve His purpose and serve his benefit was to actually be distant, kind of shy away. You know, when somebody who becomes very prominent, and somebody shows up and maybe they have something to hide in their past, and somebody from their past shows up, they get very nervous and very worried.
They get really concerned like, oh, man, this guy knows me like he knows me. He knows the real me.
But the prophet of Allah syllogism is seeking out the people who don't invest. He didn't have anything to hide. In fact, the whole life his whole life that he had lived up to this point, this 40 the first 40 years of his life are a testament to the truth of his message. They were evidence of the fact of him being a prophet, and his best friend who would know him better than his best friend. I've known him for over 30 years knew him as a child. I knew him as a teenager. I knew him as a youngster knew when he got married, knew and he had his first child.
They knew him when he first started doing business, traveled with him the business with who would know him better than that. Nobody.
In the second years, he believes, because he said, this makes total sense.
This makes total sense your character, your nobility, you're a clock.
And secondly, you've never lied ever before. If anybody knew of a little white lie that you might have told it would be me.
Even as a child, I can't remember you lying. I had no reason to doubt you. He believed in silly and that was a major factor in Abu Bakar I think a lot more I know, accepting Islam immediately and accepting Islam, the way he accepted Islam.
The Prophet of Allah Salah ism degeneration and Sahiba hottie narrated by Abu Dhabi, along with I knew where it tells a story about Abu Bakar a loved one having a dispute with a loved one. And that's something that's normal. That's that's perfectly normal. People who work in close proximity with each other people that are around each other
I would disagree on matters. So they had some type of dispute disagreement on a matter that was brought before the prophets a lot a seller. The Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam said in Allahabad alaykum. Allah sent me to y'all. He he sent me as a prophet in a messenger to y'all for Fulton captor.
And what did you all say to me? Y'all responded to me by saying you lie.
Well, Carla Abu Bakr sadaqa Bukhari said he speaks the truth. I was sent by Elijah prophet in the messenger to all of y'all. And all of y'all said, You lie. abubaker said he speaks the truth. Well, I sang enough. See, he was mad he
and he supported me. He aided me with his life and with his money for hell anthem daddy Cooney saw heavy
fall anthem daddy Cooley Sahabi so now will you be Will you basically treat him badly? My friend he called him my best friend you will treat my best friend My companion badly now
that the Prophet Solomon was basically saying that none of you give him the respect he deserves.
You disagree with him disagreements are fine. But you give him the respect that he deserves
is very very important in the profits a lot of him basically spoke on his behalf Murat aim and then the process of said this two times file unknown tarricone sahibi. parenthetically sahibi from our movie about her. And nobody ever used to ever misbehave with Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allah from that day on, because he understood
how close he was to the Prophet system, and what he meant to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And this basically talks about Abu Bakar anhu accepting Islam. I'll enter the session with
something that has done
in the next session. Actually, the story of Obi Wan Kenobi, llamando accepting Islam is not complete. It's not over, it'll have to carry on into the next following session. Because there's a major incident that took place. There's a major, major incident that took place, because Abu Bakar the long run was not only the first free man to accept Islam, he was also the first one to go public with Islam. And when he when he went public with Islam, something major and drastic occurred. And there's also the detail of what Abu Bakar the loved one who did the first two days that he was Muslim. There's a beautiful story about what he did the first few days he was Muslim. So we'll talk
about all of that in the following session. But what I'd like to end with today is with Hassan bin tab, it's not the Allahu anhu says this is preserved into the run of Hassan who is a great Sahabi of the process. I mean, he's a poet, when he says about Abu Bakar the Aloha No, he says he does is that as a counter shadowman secret in folklore a haka. bachlin Bhima Allah hadal Berea to faha wa Barnaby Eva Ola, hobbema Hamada watani attorney al Mahmoud Masha, who was our NASA min himself, Dr. Rasulullah, Ayesha Hamid, under the umbrella he metabo be Amritsar he became mildly woman takala. He says that, if you want to remember sacrifice, if you want to recall sacrifice, and you want to
recall, belief and bravery, then remember my brother, Abu Bakar mean talk about him and what he did. He was the best of people, and he was the most trustworthy of people. And he was the most just unfair of the people after the prophets a lot he sent them. And he was the first one to carry what the prophets Allah had brought. He was the first one to line up behind the prophets, a lot of them the second of the two in the cave, the one that was praised by a lion is messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the one who stood by the side of the prophets, a lot of them throughout Prophethood and he was the first one amongst the people to attest to him being a messenger and a
prophet. He lived a life that was very praiseworthy, and he followed the command of Allah and he followed the command of his companion the Prophet Mohammed Salah he said I'm after he was gone, and living according to align this command and he leaves this world and depart from this world. These are the virtues and this is the praise of Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu. May Allah subhanho wa Taala be pleased with him. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us his noble qualities and May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to believe in the way he believed. inshallah we'll go ahead and end today's session here. And may Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything that was said and
heard. So how to lay he will be hungry he subhanak alone we have Nick the Chateau La Ilaha Illa, anta suffered Kona to buddhic I know I keep making reference to previous sessions.
