00:00:29--> 00:00:35

Sharla continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a skeleton of a Ouija.

00:00:36--> 00:01:03

In the last couple of sessions, we've actually been talking about the hegira to from mucca mucca mucca, Rama to Al Madina, munawwara, we've been talking about the great migration of not just the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but of all the Muslims, from Mecca to Medina, and the settling of the community in Medina and what a monumentous occasion and what a landmark event that actually was.

00:01:04--> 00:01:48

In the course of talking about that, we've covered a few different things, we spent some time discussing the migration of key members of the community, very stories that really, really stick out and have been a core part of, you know, the prophetic tradition in this regard. When we talk about the Sierra, such as the story of the family, Abu Salah masala and their son. We talked about the his rather migration of honorable mahatama, the Allahu taala, on who, and we talked about a lot of different incidents and different events that occurred in the previous session, we were actually talking about the day that yom was the day that the co founder of the of Quraysh, gathered together

00:01:48--> 00:02:04

created a council and they met in regards to they were trying to figure out how to handle this situation that was going on, that all the Muslims are leaving the profit of a loss of lobby, so we'll assume might also leave, what should we do? How do we go about in handling this situation?

00:02:05--> 00:02:46

And one of the things that we talked about was how they, they they basically shared different thoughts and ideas and opinions, shape on himself who was present in that particular meeting, in the form of very old men presented the proposition kept turning down everything that they were saying, until finally Abuja presents the proposition of assassinating the prophets a lot. He set them in a very specific form, where you gather together young men of all different families and tribes of Quraysh and everybody kills him or assassinate him attacks him at the same time, but thereby, you know, but who Hashem not really being able to seek retribution from any one family and that settling

00:02:46--> 00:03:07

the matter so they gather onto this daisies they lay siege to the home of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the prophets a lot ism is informed of what is going on by gibreel alayhis salam and told to immediately depart, he calls aren't even a Vitaly, but on the Allahu taala on who puts him into position gives them the instructions on how to distribute all the

00:03:08--> 00:03:44

Amman ads, everything that he was safekeeping for people. And then the prophets a lot he sent him departs. And we talked about that miraculous incident where the prophets a lot of the Sun passes through the midst of these people. He actually hears Abu Jahan, talking about him and he goes outside and he says, Yes, I am the one who said a Buddha saying that he calls you to worship one God and leave the idols and he says, If you listen to him, you'll get paradise. And this he gives like a whole hubbub who john does. And the prophets a lot he sent him goes outside and he says, Now I'm an alcoholic. Yeah, that's exactly what I say. And then the profits, a lot of them scoops up a handful

00:03:44--> 00:04:18

of dirt recites the facility has seen and throws the dirt and the narration says a little bit of dirt, dust lands on the head of every person there. And the profits, a lot of some passes cleared through them without them noticing. And eventually somebody else comes to them and says, Well, what are you doing here? They say waiting for Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And the man says that well, he's long gone. Didn't you see? He just walked right through here? and say, What are you talking about? He's sleeping inside because I live with the Allahu taala who's sleeping in the bed of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So they want two narrations one is that they wait till the morning

00:04:18--> 00:04:55

time. Another narration is that they start to kind of panic a little bit. They barge into the home and they find out later the Allahu taala no sleeping there. And they say, you know, it's it's problematic. It's tough enough to try to kill one member of the new house and we can't just randomly kill another person. So they leave early. They asked him where is the profits a lot of the time he says, you know, he's gone, he's long gone. And so they leave on either the Allahu taala and who, and at this point in time, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So we ended the narration, we ended the session talking about a leader the Allahu taala and when his story of the hits around

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

the migration, where he eventually leaves after taking care of all

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

affaires wrapping up everything in mcca and he leaves and how he arrives there finally in Medina and he's very ill his feet are in very bad shape and then again the profits allottee some performances miracle of you know remedying alira the Allahu jalon with his bare hands and his saliva and Allah Allah The Allahu taala, who is miraculously cured? Now we pick up from this moment so the prophets Allah decent leaves his home, and he heads directly for Abu Bakar radi Allahu taala was home. When I was reading and preparing and researching for tonight's session. I couldn't help but notice that the next the next few things that occur in this journey of the hinges on the next few details that we

00:05:48--> 00:05:50

come across in the heads around the migration.

00:05:51--> 00:05:59

All involve the remarkable Abubakar Siddique radi Allahu taala and who and his amazing family.

00:06:01--> 00:06:07

Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala knew and specifically his daughter a smile binibeca

00:06:08--> 00:06:50

that the following events all point towards how unbelievably amazing they were. What an amazing remarkable man Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu anhu was and so I kind of realized to really do justice, because the brothers and sisters who normally attend to see our class or listen to the podcasts afterwards, they know that you know, the objective here has always been quality over quantity that I don't try to rush through the events but I try to take each event and really understand it and analyze it and appreciate it and then extract and draw the lessons from there. So I realized again that even if we tonight are only able to get from the house of Abu Bakar to the

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

cave of to the

00:06:52--> 00:06:53

to the lot of thought

00:06:55--> 00:07:23

that even if we're only able to get from the house of Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allahu to the cave of thought. That's completely worth it. And I realized that the theme overall of tonight's session would just be the virtues the father in the monarchy, the virtues. The remarkable facts about this amazing man, Abubakar radi Allahu Jelani, may Allah be pleased with him. And I want to go ahead and start with a narration

00:07:24--> 00:08:05

that is mentioned there are a couple of different versions of this narration. This particular version is narrated by Missouri, who narrated from Ottawa, Ottawa tipnis obeyed, who was the nephew of a shadow the Allahu taala and also one of our students. And he narrates it from the mother of the believers is on his teacher, I shadow the Allahu taala on her. She says, Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Messenger of God may or may Allah peace and blessings be upon him said, My I hadn't ameno la ephesoft but he was that he had he mean a be back. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that no one has ever done more for me,

00:08:07--> 00:08:18

either through his companionship or by means of the support that that person has provided for me. Nobody Nobody has ever done more for me than Abubakar radi Allahu anhu

00:08:20--> 00:08:56

the prophets a lot of a sudden goes on to say magnifymoney Marlin manna for Annie Malou abeba no one's wealth was more beneficial in the cause of the deen when the process of says it did not benefit me what what does that mean not buying the profits a lot even luxurious things even though Boubacar de Lago I knew he would do that. If that's what was asked of him or required of him but that's not what he's referring to. He's referring helping the Messenger of Allah syllogism is helping the deen of Allah. Because that was the cause of the promises have lived for. He woke up every morning you went to sleep every night he lived he breathed the walk the talk the deen of Allah

00:08:56--> 00:09:02

subhanaw taala so he says no one's wealth has ever benefited the deen as much as the wealth of Abu Bakar rhodiola one

00:09:03--> 00:09:20

Welcome to Mota hidden Halima Latika to Ababa Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that if I was to take a best friend, because in another narration, in another place of profits, a lot of the some says that I've taken a law as my best friend.

00:09:22--> 00:09:37

I've taken a lot as my best best friend Holly Hill is like your absolute most bestest friend. So he says that I've taken a lot as my best friend. But if I was to take a human being as my best friend, it would have been Abu Bakr radi Allahu talana.

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

I shared this earlier because we've already actually once before talked about the virtue of Abu Bakar radi Allahu talanoa in the early Sierra, or actually quite some time back when we talked about him being one of the first people to accept Islam, that the Prophet talathi Some said every single person, all of you once I'm in Medina, he's addressing the Muslims later on in Medina. He's

00:10:00--> 00:10:11

says all of you, when I gave you the message when I preach to you when I shared the message with you, you thought about it you asked a question, you slept on it, you came back the next day, etc, etc. He says all except for aboubaker

00:10:13--> 00:10:21

I told him the message he immediately accepted, no questions asked. Then we again talked about the virtues of Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allahu in the story of mirage.

00:10:23--> 00:10:42

Abu Bakr radi Allahu talanoa has no humanly like if we talk about it from a non Islamic non spiritual perspective, Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allahu has no human. It's not humanly possible for him to actually know what the prophets a lot of them is saying is actual fact. The prophets a lot of them is describing as bait to knock this

00:10:43--> 00:11:24

as Masuda luck saw. He's describing Jerusalem and he's describing unless you do luxa in Jerusalem, and as the prophets allows you to describing every little detail because Allah subhanaw taala puts it in front of his eyes he can see it and he's describing it every single sentence of prophets Allah ism completes its door is here its window is like this The door is like this. The masala looks like this everything he describes, at the end of every statement like a period, like a period punctuation mark, at the end of every single statement Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala says Dr. So Dr. rasulillah so doctor, you have spoken the truth you have spoken the truth you have spoken the truth. So this is

00:11:24--> 00:11:58

that great man Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala. No. And we read the narration the prophets a lot. He sums own testimony about the great virtue of Abu Bakar, the Allahu talanoa and what service he provided for the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And I want this to understand even before Usually, I try to share some of the lessons in the take home message at the end of the day. I'd like to share something here at the outset. Because when we listen to what we're about to talk about, I don't want anyone to be in the mindset of we're listening to a story from a long, long time ago, in a faraway place. There was a man

00:12:00--> 00:12:10

that's a fairy tale. But we're not talking fairy tales here. I want us to be able to understand what we're exactly talking about. This is a man that we owe our Deen to.

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

This is a man who left a legacy this was the man who was at the aid of the prophets, a lot of them this is a man who at every turn every single time that they needed somebody, the prophets, a lot of them needed somebody to stand up and support. It was Abu Bakar. The Allahu taala, who answered the call is a man that we personally, you and I, all of us we are indebted to, and for us to not know about him, and to not appreciate him and not make dua for him and pray for him and look forward to meet him in paradise on the day of judgment in the hereafter. It's a tragedy on our part. It's an ignorance of our history. When you talk about the history of any nation, any country, there's so

00:12:52--> 00:12:54

much adulation and admiration

00:12:56--> 00:13:17

of individuals, the founder of a country, the first president of a nation, the Liberator of a people, the leader of the army that won the revolution. We idolize these people, and oftentimes Subhanallah the The really interesting thing is 100 years. 200 years later, we have revisionist history. And when we go back and we actually find out that a lot of times they

00:13:19--> 00:13:20

were kinda terrible people.

00:13:22--> 00:13:23

true or not?

00:13:24--> 00:13:45

We find out 200 years later, well, this guy had a plantation full of slaves are rubella. And here we are, we idolize this man. We go, we look back 600 years later, 700 years later, we find out this person was enslaving people free people, enslaving them and selling them as slaves or halfway across the world.

00:13:47--> 00:13:49

And we we idolize this person.

00:13:51--> 00:13:56

Abu Bakar radi Allahu talanoa Man of the highest standard. How can we not know about

00:13:57--> 00:14:24

one of the people that laid the foundation of this religion? This is that great man. Before we even read this I want you to keep one statement of Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala, who in mind, everything you hear about him everything you learned about him. I want you to keep one statement that he made later on in his life. He actually made this statement after the passing of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he made one statement that really summarizes why Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala was, he said, I am Casa de Nova and a high

00:14:25--> 00:14:26

Al Pacino and

00:14:28--> 00:14:32

he said, Can the dean suffer any level of decrease?

00:14:34--> 00:14:43

Can the religion like suffer any can the religion suffer any type of a setback while I am still alive?

00:14:44--> 00:14:51

That either I die preventing from the religion from suffering any type of a setback,

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

or I need to exert every ounce of my being to ensure that there is no setback here.

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

It's one or the other. So this is the mindset of this man. Keep that in mind.

00:15:06--> 00:15:08

So now we read about the narration

00:15:11--> 00:15:52

Imam Ahmed no humble in his Muslim mentions in a narration from ignore Ibis of the Allahu taala and humor. There's our shared generation with you that ignore our bestseller the Allahu talanoa and Buhari actually first he says, boy, Ethan Wu Salallahu alaihe salam Ali Baba Sen. The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was made a profit at the age of 40. Like he was given revelation from Agatha be Makoto de la Shara. You have la he then he lives then he spent 13 years in Macau while receiving revelation from only Robin he Geraci for hotjar Asha seen him then he was commanded to migrate from mccutchan Medina and he lived there for 10 years. Well matter what was even with

00:15:52--> 00:16:11

Allah Theo was 18 and he passed away when he was 63 years old. Walker the Ghana teacher oh two who led salon fishery lobby and a one Senator thalassa asharam. In bed member I said he alehissalaam that his migration from Mecca to Medina was in the month of robbery or a one

00:16:13--> 00:16:39

in the 13th year of his prophethood his message his mission with Africa film in his name, and that was on the day of Monday. Mr. Mohammed Mohammed Al Rahim Allahu taala as I was mentioning earlier mentions from Abdullah bin Abbas radi Allahu Allahu Allah, Allah who called uliana bu come Yeoman is named that your messenger and your prophet alayhi salatu was Salam was born on a Monday, we'll call Raja Mecca to Yeoman his name. And he was

00:16:40--> 00:17:14

he left Makkah, meaning he departed on the journey of the higit on a Monday will not be a O'Malley's name. He was made a profit on a Monday like he received revelation on Monday. What the hell Medina tegami listening, he entered into an Madina munawwara on a Monday, what you will fear your money thing and he passed away on a Monday. And this narration is authenticated is an authentic narration that Mr. Mohammed is no humble mentions in his Muslim. So I just want to kind of mark the day and the scholars agreed there was actually an each map of the Sahaba radi Allahu taala, on whom, during the collapse of

00:17:16--> 00:17:56

the Allahu taala and who that the beginning of the Islamic calendar was from that day, would have Monday that the prophets a lot of them departed from mucca mucca mucca Drama on the journey of the Hitler that was the beginning of the Islamic calendar. And since that's from where we mark the years they hinge it on yours, the Islamic calendar. And as we talked about in the previous session, Abubakar, the Allahu talanoa had constantly been going a very interestingly kind of hinting towards the fact asking the prophets a lot for permission to migrate. And he was doing it almost with the intention of trying to see when the prophets a lot of them would be leaving. And the prophets a lot

00:17:56--> 00:18:41

of them kept telling him La Jolla, Abubakar La Jolla. He said Don't rush Oh boo I can now Allah Allahu La la la, la la casa human, Allah subhanho wa Taala I'm very hopeful that Allah will give you provide you a companion on your journey. And he was referring to himself into my young enough so who, so what Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala knew did during this time was he spent 800 on him. He spent 800 on him. And he went out and he purchased two camels. He purchased two camels and he had purchased them, he purchased all the materials that were necessary for the travel for the journey. And he had taken these two camels and he had given them to a servant to slave to basically save,

00:18:41--> 00:19:05

keep and safeguard and hold on to them and keep feeding them and making sure that they were okay. And be basically on call beyond notice. He hired him and told him keep them ready, keep them gassed up and oiled up and ready. And the second I give you the word, I won't have a lot of time, it might be all of a sudden, but the second I give you the word, I need you to immediately bring those candles to me.

00:19:06--> 00:19:25

So the nation goes on to mention eyeshadow the Allahu taala on her says, Canada up Rasulullah sallallahu alaihe salam and yet at a beta Abu Bakar I had a total of eight and a half in my book written by Mr. Sheehan. She says that the prophets a lot of them would visit the home of Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala knew every single day.

00:19:27--> 00:19:47

Every day he would come and visit his friend Abubakar de la one. That was the companionship the love, the connection, the trust that the prophets a lot of them had in Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu. And she said he would either come in the morning or he come in the evening, the day that the prophets allottee someone was commanded by Allah to make them his or other migration. He came,

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

you know, at a time where he normally wouldn't come and get a tan narrow slice a large sample Haji raw FISA, I can kind of lay it out it was like in the evening time

00:20:00--> 00:20:23

process them typically wouldn't come at this time. He'd come a little bit earlier in the day like towards you know before the sunset or he'd come after the sun had risen Those were the normal times and he came a little bit more like in the nighttime when it was dark outside and that was not the habit of the prophets a lot he said I'm so she says that in as soon as the Buddha kind of the Allahu Allahu saw the profits allowed him at the door he knew something was up he knew something was up.

00:20:25--> 00:20:59

Machado salicylate ism has he saw in early America whether he's coming in for a reason something's happened. So the profits a lot of these him comes inside abubaker I think Allahu talanoa tells him to have a seat. He looks around and I shadowed the Allahu taala and he says the only people in the home at that time was the father Abubakar, the laquan Oh, and his two daughters smashed into a burger and the Ayesha Siddiqa radi Allahu taala and these were the only members of the family that were in the house at that time. The prophets a lot of them sat down, he looked around he saw all three of us and then he told Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala knew that if there is anyone else in the

00:20:59--> 00:21:06

home, I need you to kind of ask them to leave or I need you to ensure our privacy because I have to share with you some very very

00:21:07--> 00:21:44

you know top secret information if you will. And Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala say in ama Who am I Houma even attire, while my dakka dakka abhi well, Mia rasulillah he said that a messenger of Allah The only other two people in the home are these two daughters in mind that you see right here, who obviously you can trust and there's nobody else so please tell me what's going on. My my mother and father be sacrificed for you a messenger of Allah What is going on? And the prophets a lot of them said in the law her father Athena Lee filicudi will hit Allah. Allah subhanaw taala has granted me the permission to leave Makkah and make the migration to Madina munawwara

00:21:45--> 00:22:11

Now I want you to appreciate this moment the prophets of legend proclaims this and you got to understand this is a huge moment. This is something everyone's been waiting for. been praying for been asking for been worried about when well, because the profits that we talked about this in the previous generation, there's no Muslims of America. Some of the narrations mentioned that aside from whoever was held captive, and a few women and children. The men that remained in Makkah were pretty much the prophets a lot of them Abu Bakr,

00:22:12--> 00:22:15

radi Allahu taala there was nobody else

00:22:16--> 00:22:20

and so they've been waiting so the process of proclaims in the law the Athena Li

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

Allah has given me permission philippou julija

00:22:26--> 00:22:31

in Lucca Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allahu says, Allah Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu A Sahaba Rasul Allah

00:22:33--> 00:22:36

a samba Rasul Allah, He says that,

00:22:38--> 00:22:46

will I have the honor of accompany you on messenger of Allah and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, a sofa? Yes, you will accompany me

00:22:48--> 00:23:09

before I even go forward, because, again, I want you to appreciate the gravity of this. This this this honor, this dignity this virtue, bestowed upon Abubakar the logo and we were going to read later on, I'm gonna do the Allahu taala No, of course has a very famous statement, where he says that I would trade all of the deeds.

00:23:11--> 00:23:35

I would trade all of the deeds of Allah. I would trade all of the deeds of the entire family of the Allahu taala and who not just my own deeds, but my entire family, extended family. I would trade all those deeds in exchange for one day in one night of Abu Bakar the Allahu taala knew and he talks about how one of those occasions was when the Prophet sallallaahu Elisa left for the hills.

00:23:36--> 00:23:40

It was Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allahu accompany the prophets, Allah Acela.

00:23:41--> 00:23:54

So this is what a great honor it was. So Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala immediately, you know, I said the Allahu taala when he says that when he asked the prophets Allah Subhana Allah Allah in the process of said asaka Yes you may accompany

00:23:56--> 00:24:08

she says Khalid inshallah the Allahu taala says, she said for lucky Masha Allah to cut to Kabbalah radical yom and I hadn't yet key mineral for he had Tara a to abubaker in Yama isn't yet.

00:24:09--> 00:24:52

She says I swear to Allah, I never believed before that day. You know, when you talk about somebody crying out of happiness. She said, I never believed that somebody could ever be so happy that they would cry. Until that day when I saw my father Abu Bakar the Allahu taala no cry out of happiness, that he would accompany the prophets a lot. He sent them on this remarkable journey on this momentous occasion. So immediately abubaker the Allahu taala and who says oh messenger of Allah in a ha teeny tiny icon to add to llama la to Houma. Lee hada. He said that our messenger of Allah, here are two animals, he immediately sends word to the servant who brings the two camels. He says on

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

messenger of alive got these two rides ready to go. I prepared them from before, and he says that I even hired a man to guide us

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

And to lead us on the way.

00:25:04--> 00:25:16

And he's bringing them now. He's got everything ready to go and he's bringing them now. One of the nation says that the prophets a lot of them told Abubakar, the Allahu taala anhu that I will pay for my transportation.

00:25:17--> 00:25:35

I will pay for my transportation. And of course you can imagine, right? We take out, you know, a friend or a relative or the mom or a shack or somebody like that we take them out for dinner, or for lunch, and they try to pay, we're offended. We're like, No, no,

00:25:36--> 00:26:10

this is a messenger, but lots of lots of them. And I've been working with the Allahu taala. And he's got everything ready in the process of saying what kind of how much did it cost me? Now this is what a predicament This is, right? Because on one side, you want to you want to serve the prophets a lot. I mean, you don't want him to pay for it. And on the other side, you have some marijuana. So he says how much should it cost? I am going to pay for it. So rock and a hard place right? Once I you don't want to say anything you want to say no, you cannot pay for it. But then how do you say no to the salicylate? They said I'm so broken nothing Allahu taala who's trapped and he's like, oh messenger

00:26:10--> 00:26:50

of Allah. Please yell at us with a law and the prophets. A lot of them's like, No, you be quiet. You tell me how much this cost? I'm going to pay for my own transportation. We're going in the path of a law we're doing hinged on migration. This is something that will change the course of humanity. I'm paying for my own right. You see the honor the dignity of the prophets a lot a sentiment this and you see the heat map of Abu Bakr radi Allahu talanoa This is such an unbelievable occasion. And so the prophets a lot of some pays for his own transportation his own ride. And the narration then goes on to say that they snuck out from the back at abubaker Ivanovic ha ha ha ha ha kochava Raja Minho.

00:26:50--> 00:27:01

hotton Leah be back and Filardi Beatty, Abubakar, the Allahu talanoa are kind of like a small backdoor a back entrance in his home. And they snuck out from there, they got the animals, and they went on their way.

00:27:03--> 00:27:17

One of the narrations mentions and this is the stuff I always like to highlight because it shows practical spirituality, I oftentimes talk to my students about practical spirituality. We talk about spirituality quite often, but we talk about it in a very,

00:27:18--> 00:27:59

you know, ambiguous weird, complicated form. But a practical form of spirituality is what that's all all that declare that you are on. It's an it's a practical part of your everyday life. It has a practical function in your life. So one generation mentions that bolivariana Rasul Allah, he's a lolly, semla Maharaja, Makka Mahajan, ilahi redan, Medina, that when the Prophet system set up from Makkah towards Medina, they got under transportation, they're on their way holla al hamdu Lillahi ledi Hala carniola Khushi.

your permission, Oh Allah, the prophets a lot even makes this powerful while they're writing the animal into traveling on their way.

00:30:51--> 00:31:24

So the narration mentions before I actually talk about the next part of it, now they leave their home, they leave the house of the Allahu anhu and they're on their way out of Mecca. What happens back in Makkah now, I told you that today's session was not just about the virtues of Abu Bakar but it was about the virtues of his family. Specifically, we know the virtues of eyeshadow, the Allahu taala momineen, wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but we oftentimes forget about the virtues of a snub into the bucket, her older sister a smile, radi Allahu taala and her.

00:31:26--> 00:31:53

So what's happening back at the house home of Abu Bakar Abu Jahan, as soon as they barge into the home of the prophet to love him and they find him out there they know where's the next place to look? Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala in his home. So Abu JAL with some people rushes over to the house of Abu Bakar radi Allahu anhu knocks at the door as not being happy Becca young girl. She opens the door and he says, where's your father?

00:31:55--> 00:31:56

aina aina Ababa

00:31:59--> 00:32:03

aina Abubakar Where's your father? Telling me a Naboo kaaboo buck.

00:32:04--> 00:32:09

And she responds to him by saying I don't know. They left and I don't know where they're at.

00:32:11--> 00:32:16

And the narration says that as mapping w bekah narrates this herself. So you can imagine

00:32:18--> 00:32:22

for Rafa Abu jehoiada who she says that Abu Jamal

00:32:23--> 00:32:50

lifted up his hand. What kind of faction hobbiton she said he was a very like shameless, like, just terrible man. He was a terrible person abou john. She says for lotto Maha de la Mata Hari hominy karate. She said that he lifted up his hand and he slapped me as hard as he could on my face. He slapped me as hard as he could on my face to the point where I fell down.

00:32:51--> 00:32:56

But she says I, I looked at him straight in the eyes and I said, I'm not going to tell you anything.

00:32:57--> 00:33:03

This is a strength of that family. This is a therapy of a father like a bucket of Creed's a daughter like a smart

00:33:05--> 00:33:20

another generation follow up to that. A smarter the Allahu taala on her. She narrates this herself. Her son narrated from her. He says that the Maharaja Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam Maharaja Abubakar atiku

00:33:22--> 00:33:24

Abubakar mala hula hula who,

00:33:25--> 00:34:01

again, who is Abubakar Smith, the daughter says that when the when my father Abubakar left with the prophet to lodge him, he gathered up whatever money we had left, or every last penny that we had left. He gathered all of it up and took it with him. Why? Because he said that we might end up needing it. The profits a lot. He said we might need it for the dean, we might need it from July salon, he said, so he took every last penny and she says comes into our live demo center to our laughter and she said it was either five or $6,000 him five $6,000 whatever you want to consider it. She said whatever money was left, he took it and he left with the prophets a lot he sent him for the

00:34:01--> 00:34:42

holla Alena God abou hava waka Dabba Saru. She says A little while later, after a Buddha had come and made his little interrogation, and and, you know, slap me and he left. A little while later, Mike, by the time the news spread. My grandfather came Abu hanifa he would become Muslim later in fenstermacher. So he would become Muslim seven, eight years later, not a Muslim right now. And she says he was already blind at this point. He was a very old man. In the narration about tumaco where he accepts Islam. It describes him where all of his hair is white, even his eyebrows, his eyelashes, everything is white. Such an old man and he's blind at this point, his vision is gone because of his

00:34:42--> 00:35:00

old age. So he comes to the home. He says children are you here Is everything okay? And we say yes, grandfather, we're here. Everything's fine. She doesn't complain about this. She's like, No, we make sacrifices for Allah subhana wa Taala for the deen of Allah. We don't need

00:35:00--> 00:35:14

to complain to anybody else. I mean look at the attitude the mindset of these people they embraced the opportunity to be able to sacrifice. So he then says we're lucky in the law hookah fudge our combi Malema NFC. He

00:35:16--> 00:35:25

says your father left and if I know him, what I've seen from him these last 13 years, he probably took all of this money didn't mean left you high and dry, didn't he?

00:35:27--> 00:36:10

Even though I smiled the Allahu taala did not mind she said, You know, he didn't. Grandfather. I don't blame him. He can understand that. We had a law. We have Allah. But how do I help this old blind man Understand? So I realize he's just worried and he's very old and he didn't really even understand everything. So he's just angry. He's complaining he probably took all of his money left you I enjoy your so she says Allah. Allah Yeah, Betty. cola. Absolutely not grandfathered in who catalana Hayden Kathy Ron SubhanAllah. Look at what she even says she doesn't say Marlin Kathy Ron. She says you know who Katara kalenna Hayden Catherine, he's left a lot of good things for us. He's

00:36:10--> 00:36:30

left a lot of good for us meaning human, Allah, the love of Allah, the love of Islam assume the love of the book of Allah. He's left all of that for us. But she uses language, where she says he's left a lot of good for us. A lot of good stuff for us. So the grandfather understands it. However, he understands it and then she says, bye let's

00:36:31--> 00:37:07

go jaren for law to huffy, coo within Phil Beatty, she said I took a big tray that we had in the house, and I filled it up with a bunch of rocks. What kind of a b yoga or Humala houfy Hmm. And normally Abubakar, the Allahu jolanda used to put the money in this tray, it was kind of like a little basket or a tray, and you will put the money in there like the DA him. So you know, they'd be pieces of golden silver. So she says I took a bunch of rocks and pebbles I spread them out into that dish. thimble without really half open then I covered it up with a cloth because that's what we would do to keep it kind of out of sight. We'd cover it up with a cloth I covered it up with a cloth

00:37:07--> 00:37:20

from a to b a d. So then I took the hand of my grandfather and I placed it onto this dish with these rocks, covered with a cloth but bhujia ability Daya Allah has a man.

00:37:21--> 00:37:24

She said grandfather, look at this. Look at all of this.

00:37:25--> 00:37:40

And I put his hand there on the train. He moved his hand around. And he said not bad, either. Kinda. Tara Calico mhada Dyson, and he goes Oh, then there's no problem. You got plenty over here. Oh, no, don't worry. You got plenty over here. How easy would have been for a girl

00:37:42--> 00:37:50

for a little girl? a young child to complain. We don't have anything we don't want it. But this was the amount of these people

00:37:52--> 00:37:59

this is the amount of these people I really hate to rant and rave about this. And my my intention not to offend. But

00:38:00--> 00:38:11

we have 18 year old young men today strapping young men they got a flat tire. They don't know what to do, Mommy, I've let How do I do? Right? I mean, it's

00:38:13--> 00:38:19

like even the perspective I'm very honestly like this. It was a different mindset. It was a different culture.

00:38:20--> 00:38:30

This is a young woman of Yemen. Look at her face. Look at her man. Unbelievable single handedly holding down the fort. Standing up to a tyrant

00:38:31--> 00:38:44

the Prophet says I'm it's a weak narration I've shared with him here in the Seattle podcast before where the profits allow you some says legally Imagine for a moment to boo Jan. Oh, john is unfair on the young woman of Eamon

00:38:45--> 00:38:47

she stands up to a tyrant

00:38:48--> 00:38:54

takes a slap in the face and doesn't flinch defends the honor of her father

00:38:55--> 00:38:59

in the service of the dean, unbelievable family unbelievably man.

00:39:02--> 00:39:12

And so while all of this is going on, on the other side, Abu Bakr radi Allahu talanoa and the prophets a lot of them arrive at the heart of soul.

00:39:14--> 00:39:24

All right, so they arrived there, from ima de la hora and before Javelin be as funny maca. This was amounting off to the side of Mecca.

00:39:26--> 00:39:28

And they basically go and they stopped there.

00:39:29--> 00:40:00

Now there was the young man who Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala, who had hired as a guide, who took them there. When they reached a cave, they found a small little cave, and they went inside of there. They told that young man you take the camels and you go, and you come back a few days later, when the coast is clear, because they found out obviously these people are gonna come out looking for us. There's gonna be entire search parties. And on top of that, Abu Jamal and some other leaders of Croatia put a bounty on their heads 100 cameras

00:40:00--> 00:40:29

Whoever brings them back dead or alive. So they said we're gonna we're gonna hide out in this cave till kind of, you know it comes down and cools off a little bit. So you take these camels and you go away and you come back after a few days, we'll get the work to you. In the meantime, there were two other individuals who played a critical role. There was the son of Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala. Of course, who else would you expect here? Right. So you already seen father in action daughter in action. So now the son is not too far behind either. I'm loving.

00:40:31--> 00:41:10

I'm loving. That'd be Bukka Abdullah, the son of Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala, on who he was appointed by his father, Abu Bakar, that his job was to spend all day in Mecca and to move around young man you know, so just walk around town interact with people socialize, go here, go there, sit down here and sit down there and just kind of move around and hang at the seminar. And listen to what people are talking about what's going on? who's looking who's not looking? Have they put a bounty of do not put a bounty, where are they looking? Why are they looking? Where are they going? What do they know? What do they not know? Like keep keep an ear to the ground and come every night. And when he would

00:41:10--> 00:41:31

come every night he would bring food for them. He would bring food for them. And then he would come every night he would spend every night there in the cave with them. He would fill them in on all the happenings in Mecca, informed them and then he would so he would come late at night after everyone had gone to sleep and again, appreciate the fact that we're talking about Arabia 1400 years ago, there's no lights.

00:41:32--> 00:42:06

There's no flashlight. There's nothing like that. And he travels out leaves Makkah after everyone's gone into their homes and gone to sleep. Then he walks into dark into the mountains which could be very dangerous. These wild dogs and all different types of things out there. He walks snakes and everything he walks all the way there goes to the Prophet teleseminar. Boubacar brings them food spends the night there with them, you know, fills them in on all the happenings in Mecca. And then before daybreak before in the morning again in the darkness of the night. He leaves there again and gets back into his home. So nobody realizes that he was even gone.

00:42:08--> 00:42:17

And the son of Abu Bakar Abdullah, the son of a worker of the Allahu taala, who does this for three days, the other individuals so this is the night shift.

00:42:18--> 00:42:58

During the daytime there is Ahmed bin for Hadar I'm even for Hadar was had a was related to Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala on who and some narrations mentioned that he was like a freed slave of the family of Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allahu, nevertheless, he had a connection he had a very close relationship with Abu Bakr radi Allahu talanoa. And he would later on, you know, accept Islam become Muslim or either he was already Muslim at this particular point. But nevertheless, he would be Shaheed later in the incident of BMR orona, which we'll talk about a little bit later, he used to work as a shepherd. He used to work as a shepherd. So he had sheep and goats and things like that. And he used

00:42:58--> 00:43:32

to work as a shepherd amongst all the other shepherds. So what he would do is, and they the place that they were, Shepard was not far from the Cave of Thor, so it was the perfect cover. So he would spend the day there shepherding and kind of like, kind of walk off a little bit, tell everybody, I'm gonna take some of the flock and I'm just gonna walk around, look for some more, you know, patches of grass, or leaves or trees, or whatever. And he would kind of wander off, and he would go by the Cave of thought, very quietly, very stealthily, he would go there. And then they would actually take one of the animals or when the sheep or the goats and he would milk, the animal for the profits a

00:43:32--> 00:43:53

lot. He said, I'm a walk around the lagoon, and spend the day there with them. And then he would again, depart from there, you know, in the evening time, when all the shepherds would be leaving, he would rejoin them and go back to Morocco with them. And then at nighttime, of course, the son of Abu Bakar, the Allahu talana would go and this is basically what went on for three days there in the cave of thought.

00:43:54--> 00:44:09

Now, it talks about even on their way to the cave of thought continuing on with the virtues of Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala knew that as they were walking to the cave of Toad, as they were walking to the cave of fold when they left Makkah,

00:44:10--> 00:44:44

Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala and who is writing behind the prophets who loves him like he's traveling behind the prophets a lot he sent him but then he would move up in front of the prophets a lot. He said, um, then a little while later he moved back behind the prophets a lot. He some seminarians say you'd come to the left, then go to the front and then come over to the right, then he goes back to the back again. And he just kind of kept going around like this around the profits a lot of time. And after a couple of times, it's very odd behavior. Like why are you just circling around me? What's going on over here? So the profits a lot he sent him asked him, he said, Yeah, bucket is

00:44:44--> 00:44:49

everything, okay? Like, what are you doing? And he said, O Messenger of Allah. I'm nervous, I'm worried.

00:44:50--> 00:44:59

And I keep thinking somebody's gonna try to attack us from behind. Somebody's gonna write up behind us. So then I get behind you. So if they launch an arrow or do anything, you don't

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

Get me first.

00:45:01--> 00:45:07

And then all of a sudden it occurs to me that we would have somebody who's already waiting to ambush us.

00:45:08--> 00:45:14

So then what I do is I right out in front of you to be able to catch anything that will come at you from the front.

00:45:16--> 00:45:53

I'm just worried jasola line he kept going around the profits a licen like this, like imagine the level of devotion love that this person has for the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam. Then when they reached the cave, when they finally come to the cave of thought, and they figured this is the perfect place for us to kind of hide out for a little bit. Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala, who tells the prophets of sound please wait here yet so long, and he goes inside. And narration describes that he goes around with his hand with his hands, because it's dark inside the cave, so you can't really even see. So he goes inside the cave and with his hands, he covers every inch of the cave, wiping

00:45:53--> 00:45:59

around with it with his hands. And again, the prophets a lot of them asks him. What are you doing? Yeah, Baba.

00:46:01--> 00:46:27

What are you doing? Well, the most intelligent people I've ever known. And now you just acting bizarre ever since we left Makkah, what are you doing? And he says on messenger over lights and small little cave. Nobody's here. It's really dark inside. I'm worried that there might be like some snakes or scorpions or something harmful. So I was wiping around with my hands. So that way, I would know I would find out if there was anything harmful inside. The caveat is Willa.

00:46:28--> 00:46:31

Can you see the love that Abubakar about the Golan Heights for the profits.

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

And so then he asked the Prophet system Come on inside.

00:46:36--> 00:46:44

And they sit down inside of the cave, and they stay inside of the cave. And they're reading and they're making dry and they're sitting there and resting there and spending their day there.

00:46:46--> 00:47:23

Now, there's a very, and I'm probably going to end up stopping here. But there's a very interesting, you know, little bit. There's an interesting narrative about the cave. I was actually talking about this with the the Pelham seminary students, we were covering this chapter in the classical seat attacks we're reading. So I was we were talking about this today. There's an interesting little narrative about the cave, that when the prophets a lot of them went inside with Abu Bakar, the Allahu taala, and who, and by the second third day when de Porres actually we're now in that area, scoping that area out covering that area, that there are a few different collection of different

00:47:23--> 00:47:35

narrations. Some narrations mentioned that Allah subhanaw taala caused a tree like miraculously a tree sprouted out out of the ground, and covered the mouth, the opening of the cave over,

00:47:36--> 00:47:51

just grew up instantaneously, and covered the opening of the grave. Another narration says that our last panel with Allah sent a couple of pigeons there. And they like, again, instantly, like built a nest laid eggs right there in front of the cave.

00:47:52--> 00:48:21

at the mouth of the cave, another narration mentions that our last panel with us and spiders there to like spin the spider web. Some narrations mentioned that some lizards and stuff like that came there. And we're crawling around like insects and lizards and stuff like that we're crawling around in front of there. We're again typically nobody has kind of cleaned up or passed through for a while. So now imagine there's like tree branches going out in front of it pigeons and ness. And you know, spider webs and insects and all of this is there.

00:48:22--> 00:48:59

And so before I tell you something interesting about just the authenticity of these narrations. So that particular narration mentioned that when they were in that area, one of the young men who was part of this, this this this, these bounty hunters who are looking for the profits a lot he said on one of them, they tell them go check over there, I think there's a cave over there. Go you look over there. And he comes up to the cave and this is the moment where Abu Bakar the Allahu taala who gets frightened and the narration says the Prophet ism is praying making you are just completely just connected to Allah. Like there's nobody else even here nothing else is going on not a worry in the

00:48:59--> 00:49:23

world then nothing could trouble him in the least bit. And I will look at the Allahu taala who is sweating and he even says to the prophets a lot he said them they are a pseudo law. I'm like I'm like having trouble not making noise like just breathing hard and panting like I'm you know, hyperventilating I'm having a panic attack. Why not for himself, but God also alive they see you then Then what am I going to do?

00:49:24--> 00:49:48

So he's worried for the safety of the profits a lot. He said them. And this is that occasion. This is that moment where the Prophet of Allah salon he said, he places his hand on the hand of Abu Bakar radi Allahu taala and to kind of calm and calm him down, places a hand on his shoulder than our patient says. And the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells him Marvin nukubati is naini Allahu Thani through Houma,

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

Latin in Alabama, Anna. He says, Yeah, abubaker mamanuca beatmania Allahu taala Summa aboubaker. What do you think what happened to two travelers that are

00:50:00--> 00:50:46

Lie is their third companion on their journey what could happen to them? What could happen to them Latin in the llama Anna Don't you dare worry about a single thing Allah is with us. And the narration mentions the ayat of the Quran that are mentioned in circle and fall where Allah subhanaw taala or excuse me, the the IOD that are mentioned in sudo to Toba. sudo to Toba. Excuse me sudo to Toba I in number 40. In Latin Sulu, Latins roof, aka Donna sorrow who la who that allows for that you help the Messenger of Allah. Allah is telling the believers help the Messenger of Allah like Allah helped his messenger is Raja hula in a cafaro when those who disbelieved ousted him from his

00:50:46--> 00:51:31

own home, his own land, his own place, cut through his vena cava Sani efnet me that there was a second travel companion with the profits a lot of similar profits on seven aboubaker is marfil hard they were both in the cave in the Uli sahibi. The profits alarmism turns to his travel companion Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allahu la Hassan in the la hermana he says Don't you dare worry about anything because Allah is with us. For Angela Allahu Sakina tahu IE, a las panatela sent down his peace in his tranquility upon the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what a Yoda who was you know the lamb Torah Allah and Allah subhanaw taala helped him with an army that you could not see.

00:51:32--> 00:52:02

He helped him through an invisible army lemtrada which Allah Kalamata Latina kifaru su Flava kalama to la de la jolla, la season Hakeem and Allah subhanho wa Taala lowered the word, the mission, the cause of those who disbelieved in Allah. But this believed in Allah and Allah subhanaw taala elevated the cause, the word the call, the mission, the message of those who believed in Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanaw taala is dominance, mighty and powerful and wise.

00:52:03--> 00:52:37

So the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam calms the nerves of Abu Bakar, the local talanoa and he says, Don't you dare worry about a thing. Allah subhanaw taala is with us and Allah subhanho wa Taala will look out for us. So I was telling you, this young man from that scouting party from those bounty hunters comes over here. And he sees and Abubakar, I think a lot of Atlanta sees him coming closer, and he starts to really panic. And the Prophet sells and puts an arm on his shoulder. He says, Don't you dare worry about anything allies with us. And this young man, he's still like quite a bit of a distance. And he mentions like 4050 yards away from the opening of the gate. And he

00:52:37--> 00:53:12

looks at it and he sees you know, the miraculously what appeared at the mouth of the cave. He looks at all of it. And he turns around, and he goes back, and the narration says the Prophet seldom can hear their conversation inside the cave, that when he goes back to the people, they're like, Hey, hey, did you check out that cave? And he's like, Nah, man, there's nothing over there. There's nothing or there's nothing over there look at it. And they just walk right away from there. And I just want to tell our protected them. Now what I was going to share with you something interesting about the authenticity of these exact narrations. There's a lot of discussion about the authenticity

00:53:12--> 00:53:36

of this, these exact particular narrations, the ones I mentioned, you know, pigeons and birds nests and eggs and spider webs, and trees. And I mentioned all of this. There's a lot of issues. There are some issues in regards to a lot of these different narrations. But the scholars of the Ceylon they actually summarize the point by these by saying that even though a lot of the exact particular narrations

00:53:37--> 00:54:15

maybe they were a little bit you know, hyperbolized and exaggerated, like you know, and beautified. And there's actually some poems that are even narrated that you know, throughout history, some people even had poems nice Judah Woo, the Maha Masai Bella Hadid, what kind of Haru Lila Anka booty family Helen kabu to be nice, she was Allah Allah babble Hammurabi do that there are all these poems talking about that what great honor there is for the spider to protect the Messenger of Allah. And imagine the spider laying its web and the pigeon putting its eggs in front of the door of the cave, etc, etc. So this was something that was probably a little bit you know, hyperbolized and

00:54:15--> 00:54:58

exaggerated for the purpose of telling of the story. So while the exact particular narrations are not completely authenticated, but the scholars of the seat I'll say that overwhelmingly, we do know for a fact that Allah subhanaw taala provided and the eye of the bronzes were a gear that will be used in lamps Aroha Allah help the prophets a lot of time with an army that you couldn't see coming. So we can know this Metro factor of Allah subhanaw taala did miraculously cover shroud protect the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and his travel companion, Abubakar acidic, rotting Allahu taala anhu in the cave of Toad on that day of the migration into higit on and Allah subhanaw taala protected them

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

from the eyes of the machete goon

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

For those who are coming after them, and basically where we'll pick up from here is when the prophets a lot SLM in Abu Bakr radi Allahu tadanobu. Finally now, they leave the cave, they call for their rides back, the rides are provided for them, and they leave the cave and they now set out on their way towards Madina munawwara. And again, the miraculous events continue to happen continue to unfold, and we'll talk about some of these miraculous events in the actual journey and their arrival into the illuminated blessing city of Medina. We're actually first day arrived in the suburb of Medina, the city of Cuba, the people of Cuba, they first arrived there people that are lost power

00:55:38--> 00:55:53

and are praised in the Quran in the book of Allah. So we'll talk about that in sha Allah in the next following session, may Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything that we said and heard. Again, I mentioned this at the beginning, I want to mention conclude with this again, when you read about these people,

00:55:54--> 00:56:18

they These are the people that we look up to these are role models, these, this is the legacy of these people. This is our spiritual heritage that we have inherited, that we are beneficiaries of. We are spiritually the inheritors of great men and great people, great men and women like Abu Bakar, the Allahu taala, no, smoking tobacco, the Allahu taala and Houma.

00:56:19--> 00:56:54

And what we have to ask ourselves is what have we done? in the service of the deen? What have we done? You know, and it's not a matter of just simply shame, my purpose of mentioning that and I'm talking to myself, not to anybody else, I'm talking to myself. The purpose here is not to shame ourselves. We're worthless, we're filthy, where we haven't done anything. We're garbage. No, that's not that's not the purpose of this, this discussion. But the purpose is that read about these people learn about these people. These are the people we need to know about. These are the people we have to educate our children about. These are the people that we should have discussions at home in the

00:56:54--> 00:57:35

family. Our children need to know deserve to know it is their right for them to know who is aboubaker and who is a smart btw Bakker, radi Allahu taala. And then secondly, when we talk about them, we read about them, we learn about them. use that as a marker that is the standard that is the bar and be inspired by the example of these people. And let's take a look, you know from motivation is very important. But every now and then, every now and then it's important to look in the mirror, take a long, hard series look in the mirror and gauge ourselves and measure ourselves Where do I stand? Where do we stand? What have I done for the deen of Allah?

00:57:37--> 00:57:58

And inshallah hopefully this motivates us to take our opportunity, the opportunity that we have to serve the DNA of a lot to take it a little bit more seriously. May Allah subhanaw taala give us the ability to practice everything that's been said and heard some Hannah Luckey will be hungry he subhanak alone behind Nick.
