inshallah, continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I see a lot in Abuja, the prophetic biography. In the previous few sessions, we've been talking about the hidden of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the migration from Mecca to Medina, the epic the great journey, the landmark event
of the prophets a lot. He said, I'm leaving mcca and migrating to the blessing the illuminated city of Medina.
What we talked about in the last couple of sessions, more specifically, was the actual journey itself, the departure from mcca. And some of the initial experiences of prophets a lot of them had, such as a three days three nights that were spent in Nevada. And then the departure from Nevada sowed the event of Soraka bin Malik
and eventually even talking about the Prophet sallallahu polysomes interaction with certain very unique individuals on his way to Medina.
Where we've reached this particular point now is that the Prophet of Allah Salafi seminaries travel companion Abu Bakr, Siddiq, radi Allahu taala and who have neared the suburb of Medina, which is known as ooba. And we're all familiar with Obi as well, whenever anyone goes and visits. The Masjid of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they visit the city of Medina. They also end up visiting Cuba in the masjid of Popeyes that was part of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. The Quran talks about the virtue of these people. And the Prophet of Allah salatu salam spoke about the virtue of the masjid of robot. And technically speaking, a lot of times, it seems that this is not
so obvious to a lot of people. And they just assume that naturally, the first must get built in the history of this woman. So we're not talking about the first bill must be built in the history of mankind in humanity. Right, of course, we've talked about that in the earlier earlier sessions of the Sierra, you'll find them on the Sierra Podcast, where we talk about the history of the GABA itself, but the first must be built in the history of this oma, the name of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the foundation the foundations laid at the time of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was not actually a must, you didn't have a we have Sharif the Prophet's mosque in Medina, but it was
actually the masjid in hooba that was built before and we've we've kind of alluded to by in the past as well. Or Milan Katara, the Allahu taala and who Abu Salah, Marathi Allahu taala, and who, ooh, Salah, rhodiola, Allahu taala, and all these different companions who were migrating from Mecca to Medina, they all stopped over in the city of Booba, the suburb of boba, if you will, in our kind of social context. We're familiar with the idea of a suburb so think of Baba as a suburb of Medina. So they were all stopping off there. And in fact, Cuba kind of became a makeshift dot only hegira. Until the prophets a lot of them would arrive and then finally settled the Muslims permanently. So
many of these immigrants from Mecca to Medina were actually stopping over and temporarily residing in Booba.
And the Muslims of football Where are from amongst the unsolved, so when we say the unsought that is inclusive of not only the Muslims of Medina, but that is also inclusive of the Muslims of Koba. And so they were just as hospitable as the Muslims in Medina. And so they, they embraced and welcomed all of these immigrants with open arms, and they welcomed them into their homes and they were staying with them and residing with them.
So now when the prophets a lot, he's him in Abu Bakar, the Allahu talanoa, near the city of puja. The guide actually leaves from there because that was his contract that he was going to take them up to this particular place. Some of the narrations which are very interesting.
This is narrated by
Amanda norwayne been Sarita. He says that a group of as many men from amongst my people, he's from the unsought, he says, who were from the companions of the prophets, a lot of them so some of the older Muslim men of my people. They said that Lama Bella vana Maharaja Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam on the maca, that when we heard about the news, when we heard the news about the prophets a lot, he said, I'm having departed from mcca whatsover kuffner Duma who we started awaiting his arrival, and he says in order to have
His arrival could not hold you either Celina Sudha Illa Vahidi hora Tina. He says that every morning after we had prayed so often, we would go out in the morning and we would wait for the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam until it became extremely hot outside like basically wait till noon. So all the way from 6am from 7am after praying so often, we'd go out not just out of Medina but outside of Cuba, and we would just wait there outside until noon time. None Toby Luna via Salallahu alaihe salam for one lucky man Abra who had the Taliban ashampoo Allah villain for either alumna Jade Leland the Hala with alika Yamin Hara he says that we're lucky I swear to Allah, we would not move
from our place until finally the sun would force us to seek out shade and we couldn't find any shade. So eventually we were forced to basically go back home and he says these were very hot days there were days of the summer. had that kind of young lady Kadima Fie Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam jealous nakoma Coronavirus. Until that day, that blessing day came when the profits a lot of them would actually arrive in Cuba. We went out as we normally used to go out and we sat and we waited and we waited and waited hodeida lambda Ville on the hill Naboo Tara, and so when we finally needed shade, because we were burning under the scorching sun, and we didn't have any shade to cover us, we
finally went back into our homes and the prophets a lot isn't arrived exactly at the time hanaa de Haan booth. As soon as we started getting back home to profits, a lot of them appeared on the horizon.
And the narrations talk about the fact that there was a man from the hood who was sitting on top of one of the roofs of the home. And he says that I was looking out into the distance until the point where the Mirage kind of starts to appear like in the heat in the desert when you look out and eventually when starts to kind of glimmer away in the distance. You see that glimmer and that shine, the Mirage in the center. All of a sudden I suit I saw two people walking up writing up on their animals approaching in the distance. And I realized the Jewish man says that I realized that this is exactly the man that these people come out of here every single day and that they are waiting for
it. So he's he's for Sahabi Allah salty he Jani hayleigh have a jet dukhan Khadija
and he says I screamed out in you know the loudest voice possible. Yeah, bunny failla. That's what they used to refer to the auto of yesterday unsolved. Yeah, Bonnie Taylor has added to Kamala deja. He said this is your decision. He basically used the term, this is your grandfather, to be respectful. So he said this is your grandfather mean? This is the elder that you have been awaiting, and he has finally arrived. So he says we all ran out from our homes, and seminarians talk about the fact that we grabbed our shields and swords and that was to basically kind of you know, be
you know, be presentable and to kind of offer like an official Welcome to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and for Krishna aerosolised Pilates and Wolfie Lindley Nakula is a by the time we reach there, the profits a lot of them had already sat down under the shade of a date palm tree funded tree and he had sat down underneath there had been traveling for a very long time. Well, not our who Abubakar mythri Sydney, and along with him was that we're working on the Allahu taala and who but the interesting thing was Abu Bakr radi Allahu talanoa. And the prophets, a lot of them were of similar age. We've talked about this in some of the early biographical sessions that we've had
about the Islam of Abu Bakar when Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu accepted Islam. We talked about how he was, you know, some, some historians say two years younger or two years older than the Prophet salallahu it somebody in either case, he was very close to the age of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
And he says what Sedona lemmie upon rasulillah is allottee some relic. Most of us have not seen the profits a lot decent before this, how many people came out? So some of the narrations talk about that over 500 Ensenada came out to greet the profits a lot of these and now what do you what can you already tell about that? First and foremost is the fact that the total number of people that have come to Mecca The season of Hajj, to embrace Islam and gift the oath the pledge of allegiance to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, they did not number higher than 70 or 80 people. So there are about 70 or 80 individuals, okay, many people had performed the hegira. At this time, many Muslims, there
weren't that many Muslims to begin with maybe a couple of dozen Muslims in Makkah who remained who migrated out to Medina also some of the Muslims from Habesha from Eastern
Africa, Abyssinia had started to come over. But at this particular point in time, only a few, like individual scattered individuals have come from there, the majority of the community would actually arrive later. So even if you tally this whole number up together, you have maybe about 100 Muslims. So where do they end? The narration says 500, of the unsought came out. And the narration tells us that it was primarily the men who came out, and some young boys and some children. But the women folk were still in the homes. And the narration will talk about the women folk and how they welcome the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So the women, lot more of the children are still in the homes. These
are just 500 plus men or young boys who've come out to greet the prophets a lot. So that means that there's maybe over 1000 Muslims at this particular point. All right, where did so many people come from? There is about 100 150 let's be very, let's overestimate 150 people who 70 or 80 of them were the, the early unsought, the original unsought, who had come to Makkah and taking the oath of allegiance with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, maybe let's just say another 50 6070 people have migrated to Medina, up till this particular point that puts the number at 150. Where did the 500 plus come from them? This was, and this is something I've talked about previously, this was the
fruit of the efforts of masabi, no matter the Allahu talana, the young man, the young man who was the pride of Makkah, who was the celebrity of Makkah, that same young men, grew up in the lap of luxury accepted, Islam was tortured by his own parents to leave Islam, that same young men who had migrated off to India but returned back to the company of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that young men and the prophets, a lot of them sent him to Medina to teach there to preach there to lead the people there.
That young man had made such an unbelievable remarkable effort at the tender age of maybe 19 2021.
That he had converted four or five, maybe even more four or 500 people to Islam.
And of course, there were the, some of the other early unsalted were also very key in regards to this effort. But he was kind of the head of the DAO project there in Medina. And so you see what remarkable efforts he had made. And now it's better for it's easier for us to understand why he was so beloved to the Prophet ceylonese.
So nevertheless, 500 plus people come out to Greek and to meet the prophets a lot a solemn
but as I was saying earlier, maybe about at the most 150 of these 500 people who have come out to greet the prophets, a lot of these I'm only about 150 of them have seen him before. Everybody else has never seen the prophets a lot easier than before. So he says, Well, let me akun Rasul Allah has a lot he some fabulous Alec.
So nobody had seen him before. A lot of a lot of us hadn't seen them. And that's kind of the thing, you know, at that point in time, everyone's just so excited. And so, you know, hanging on every single, you know, word and every single little step and instance and nuance that nobody's really talking to each other asking each other. And also, maybe there was some shyness in that fact that they didn't want to be like, So hey, which one is the prophet SAW the sun, right? So nobody wanted to be that guy. Right? Because then you can imagine six months later be like, guess what this guy said one time, he didn't even know who the seller was. So nobody really wanted to ask anyone else.
So he said, we just kind of kept watching and nobody really knew what Arqiva who knows. And people were writing up, meaning that people started coming up and following the profits a lot of the time and huddling around him like he was becoming a scene. And now because everyone's huddling around, everyone who arrives now goes and joins, you know, the group of people. And eventually, nobody really knows for certain who the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is.
And he says, Well, my yachtie funa, who may not be backer,
they couldn't tell the difference which one is the process on which one is abubaker another narration actually says, Many of us started to assume that it was Abu Bakar who is the prophets a lot so in fact, because what happened was that the prophets a lot of them went and quietly sat down under the shade of the date palm tree, and Abu Bakr radi Allahu talana was kind of standing or you know, there and we just figured that the Prophet system was kind of sitting a little bit further back. He wasn't as noticeable and Abu Bakar the Allahu talana was sitting out in front or standing. We just figured it was him until he says Hotez Allah, Allah will you lilu on rasulillah he salatu
salam until the sun started to kind of move a little bit time went by, and the shade started to shift away from where the Prophet
Ladies and was sitting for karma Abubakar radi Allahu anhu sobre como de la Jelani jumped up immediately for a gondola who believe that he and then Abu Bakr may Allah be pleased with him, took his shawl off and held it over the head of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to keep the son away from him. For out of nowhere under Danica, and then we realized we recognized who the prophets allottee Cinema was, in, in, in and of itself, there's a profound lesson in this, that the Prophet of Allah Azza wa sallam was breathtaking. He was unbelievable. He was amazing when you risk in this company. But the profits a lobbyist was also so humble. so humble, he didn't walk in and, you know, have
wasn't wearing and a name tag wasn't, you know, attracting attention to himself, calling attention to himself yelling and barking orders at people. What are you doing? What are we gonna get this who's gonna take care of this, the Profit System was so humble and quiet.
that a lot of times people wouldn't recognize or realize who the prophets a lot he said was, when it's mentioned oftentimes even later in Medina, Medina is established a machine of the profits, a lot of them is built, established. And when people would arrive from outside of town, when travelers would arrive, to find the profits a lot, they sell them, and they would walk into the machine of the profit, and they would see a group of people all sitting around, they could not distinguish and recognize oftentimes, who was Muhammad Rasul? Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, they couldn't find him. And they would have to ask which one is the messenger? That was the humility of the
prophets a lot. He was one of the people you know, it's very easy for us to talk about Be a man of the people. And it's almost become a cliche at this point, has become a slogan, it's a cliche, it's a cheap little slogan that we throw around, be a man of the people be one of the people be amongst the people, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was amongst the people, we have to ask ourselves do if we end up in a position of leadership, or in a position of prominence, do we truly still act like one of the people, this is a great son of the prophets a lot isn't that again, is lost. It's something that's lost on us. We're so sometimes affected by the outside world that we are a part of that, you
know, VIP status has entered into every facet of even our communities, and in the way we conduct ourselves in the way we operate. But being with the people from amongst the people, there's a profound, profound deep wisdom on that in regards to that. And that is the true son of the prophets, Allah Islam, he was one of the people to the point where you couldn't tell them apart, you couldn't extinguish, distinguish him from the rest of the people.
And so that's a profound quality of the prophets loving setup. Secondly, what lesson do we learn from this?
We what we learned from this at the same time, is that Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala. And who Abu Bakr, may Allah be pleased with him, Abu Bakar, and the likes of Abu Bakar, the Senior Companions, the senior Sahaba, they didn't just tag along with the prophets, a lot of them and figure just being along with him, just being around him is good enough for me. I've done my good deed for the day.
I sat next to the prophets a lot, he said them, Islam is just going to automatically just kind of rub off on me. Right? I'll smell like Islam after a little while. And that's good enough for me. I'll just make sure that I sit close enough to him to where I get into picture as well. Islam. Right, that that wasn't their attitude. Think about how resembling how similar the character, how distinguished how honorable, the character, the behavior, the conduct of Abu Bakar must have been that you could actually confuse him with the profits a lot easier. Now, think about that fact.
Is there was nothing else even if you hadn't seen the prophets a lot. He set up
the character of the prophets, a lot of them was so amazing that at the very least, you'd be able to distinguish him from everybody else know his character. But what if everybody else is vying and trying and striving and succeeding and implementing and living that same character of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? Think about what that the what type of environment that creates when you can't tell them apart because he doesn't prop himself up on some pedestal. And then you also can't tell him apart because everybody else around him is trying to be as amazing as he is in terms of character, and humility, and dignity and respect and consideration and kindness and honor and
integrity and honesty, that you can't tell him apart from everybody else. It's a true testament to not only the character of the prophets, a lot of them that you couldn't tell them apart from everybody else. And it's also a true testament to the character of the companions robiola on him.
They didn't take the religion for granted. They didn't just figure I said la li la la, la la la la la Sharona Mohammed Rasul Allah, I made sacrifices. I gave up my home. I did all of this. I'm sitting next to the prophets a lot. He says, dude, I've done my job. What more do you want from me? Right? We say that like, well, what more do you want from me? I did all of this. What more do you want from me? The Sahaba didn't have this type of an attitude. But the Sahaba really strove to become
what was what was the ideal and that was the messengers allottee for them.
And so that is another profound lesson that we learned from this.
So now, the prophet of Allah salallahu alayhi salam, he's, now when everybody arrives there, the prophets, Allah disome gets up and he starts, you know, advancing and everybody's kind of around him and walking behind him, and they're proceeding into the city of Koba. Mm. Medrano Allahu taala and his Muslim, Imam bayhealth. He also mentioned this narration that as they were ns been Malaika, the Allahu taala and who relates that as the prophets Allah, the son was arriving into the city of Baba. He said in Nila, as our Philippine man, I was amongst a group of young boys. And we were running behind the prophets a lot. He summoned the rest of the companions, Yahoo noon, and we were all
saying john, Mohammed, Mohammed.
And we kept like, kind of yelling and screaming this and celebrating, walking in with the prophets a lot. Ease him into the city of Baba. He says for us. When Arashi and I was running, and I couldn't see anything else, little boys running all these people riding and walking. We couldn't see anything through my una Jara Mohammedan. We would say Mohammed has come Mohammed has come. And we kept running and we can see anything. Until finally we kept running through the crowd. And we came upon the prophets allottee summit, Abu Bakar radi Allahu talana. And we finally saw them.
And he he remarks about how this was such an unbelievable day in such an unbelievable experience that it happened in my childhood, but I can't forget this day. And he says that there were there must have been at least 500 men from the unsought who are writing with the profits. A lot of these women they were saying Infineon Ah, I mean Amy Madani, please continue on, continue on, you will be peaceful here and we will do whatever it is that you need us to do here. So the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
continued on in and the narration talks about that even the women from their homes started climbing up onto their homes, looking for the prophets, Allah him yagoona au Hua au Hua. And so now the scene is when Malik describes 500 men walking with the prophets a lot, he said them, little boys and children running around screaming john Muhammad, Muhammad, women are now starting to climb up on top of their homes, saying, Abraham who I am who, which one is he? Which one is he? And it's been Malik radi Allahu taala. And who says, from our aina Mandarin, shabby Han v Yama even, we never ever saw a day ever like that. This was one of the most unique days we've ever experienced. He says well, a
Katara a to Yama de la Lena Yama, Toby de falam Romania Masha barnby, Hema, he says in the rewire very happy I saw the prophets a lot isn't the day he arrived in Medina. And I saw the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam on the day he passed away. I have never seen two days I've never experienced two days that were like that. That the happiness that we enjoyed the just the sheer, you know, elation that we experienced on the day the profits, a lot of them entered into mudita we never experienced happiness and celebration like that day. And then I also remember the day the profits a lot of them passed away. And we never experienced sadness and grief and sorrow like we did on the
day the profits a lot decent and passed away. So this was that day. In the UI of sa hain, the
Bara, Bara narrates from Abu Bakr radi Allahu talanoa. In the Hadith of the hedgerow Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allahu relates. He says Hassan Nasser Hina Kadena el Medina to fit through Clairol booth. He said people started flocking out. People were pouring out of Medina, onto the streets on top of their homes. The day that we arrived in Medina, when the Hillman who will hit me up alone, and the boys and the children and the servants everybody were saying in unison, Allahu Akbar. Allahu Akbar. Xiao Rasulullah Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Jaya Mohammedan Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar Raja and Mohammedan Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Jana Rasulullah. And he said they kept repeating this over and
over again praising glorifying the last dollar and they kept saying the Messenger of Allah has come Mohammed the Messenger of Allah has come video I have him on behalf he is the famous narration that mentions
that Lama Padma Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam ala Medina, that when the prophets of autism arrived in Medina Jalla Nisa was sybian Hakuna, that the women and the children were saying we're singing de la Alberto, Elena menthone, Attila da, whatever Shakira Alina ma de la la dee da, even Tamia rockin Allahu taala, kind of talking about this particular narration, he mentioned that this was more so recited, this was more likely probably said or recited. When the prophets a lot of them returned from the journey of Luke. Nevertheless, the narration mentions this in the books of in the chapter about the hidrive as well, that the women and the children were saying, but I bet, Elena
that the full moon has risen upon us mm infanatil. Without from the valleys of without whichever schuco Elena and gratitude has become mandatory and obligatory upon us, my darling nahida as long as there's a single person who is calling out to a law, as long as there's a single person praying and saying the name of Allah, gratitude will be mandatory upon the people of Medina, because as long as people will say the name of Allah, they will say the name of Muhammad Rasul Allah, and we were blessed to be the host of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so they were singing this and praising and glorifying the last panel which Allah so now the Prophet of Allah Allah decent
I'm in his heart in a Sierra relates, Vanessa Rolla Vanessa Allah Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam fue muy escallonia Annie Jimenez Allah be Toba when the prophet SAW some now arrived in the suburb of Baba, he stopped at the home have been hidden, who was who belong to the tribe have been would have been. So but what I might have been out was the major tribe that lived in Cuba and the prophets, a lot of them stayed with them. And it was a house of a woman could have been hidden. The prophets a lot of them stayed in that particular home.
Some of the narrations mentioned rather bananas Allah Allah says I've been Haytham rather he stayed in the house of Savin hyphema. Some of them kind of reconcile this by saying that he actually was residing they had prepared a place for him to stay in the home of Goodsoon been been a hidden but during the daytime he would go and he would sit to receive people to talk to people to meet with people. He would sit in the home to the meeting space was the home of salad been hyphema
and sap in Haytham other reason why the prophets a lot he soon picked that place as a place to be able to meet with the people was that Savin hyphema was single with Alexander who can Azerbaijan La Jolla who he was single he didn't have any family and all the Sahaba the the immigrants or the Mahajan who are arriving there to Medina who are single who did not have families with them. Were all staying in the house of sobbing faith Emma so that was kind of designated as a place where all the single brothers could stay and you follow leave at bay to his house was called the house of the single men. So good name for an MSA Baitullah reserved. Right so it was a house of single men. All
right. And so Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala. And who was saying with who Bateman itself, who was who belonged to the tribe have been had it been a huzar Raj.
And some other narrations mentioned that he was saying with hydrojet urbanization. So this is now the profits a lot of the some arrives there. And he's staying in the house of House of consume. And he is conducting just meetings and meeting and greeting people talking to people in the house of sad been Hey sama.
A very interesting narration before I kind of move on from here is that I live in avatar liberati Allahu taala. And who relates he even is hock talks about that Ali radi Allahu taala, who stayed in Makkah three days and three nights after the prophets a lot he soon departed, basically taking care of all the responsibilities that what that Yeah, that would be the Ummah not the Trust's that were given. People used to deposit their goods and their money with the profits, a lot of them for safekeeping. So he was distributing it and he was giving it back out to the people. When he finally was done with it. He left and he joined the profits a lot he set them also in the house of
fulfillment and hidden.
The Allahu taala and who stayed in Cuba for about maybe a night or two nights. He says he tells a very interesting story. He says that there was a woman who lived in Cuba.
She lived by herself. She didn't have any husband or family. She was a Muslim woman. And he says I saw a man who would come at night, like when it was first nighttime would first fall like a shot time. A man would come he would knock at the door.
For your variable Alibaba for talking to a lady she would come out and answer the door for your ugly ha ha and ma hufa taco. He would give her something like a bag he would give her a bag or a satchel and she would take it and then she would go back inside. So he says first start up to be shot and he saw I was this just seemed kind of peculiar. seemed kind of strange. Like, I didn't know what to make of this. So he said, football to LA so I asked her Yeah, I might Allah you know, like we say yeah, AB de la slave of Allah said Yama to LA Oh woman, Manhattan la dee boo la ke Baba ki Kula Layton for 234 Taku Gina la de for your Tiki for your Tiki Shay en la de ma Hua. Well, Auntie Emma
Tomasi, Mattila de la ke. He says that, who is this every night he comes to your home, he knocks your door you come outside answer the door. He gives you something you take it and you go back inside. You're a Muslim woman. You don't have any relatives, any family members that live with you just what's going on here. So she says have been Haneef. This has been Haneef, and he knows and he hadn't he
am a woman who lives by herself and I don't have any other family. I don't have anybody to look after me to take care of me. For either answer. I da ofan is only here for Casa raha. When evening time comes when the sun sets and it starts to get dark outside. He goes in amongst his people, his tribe, he goes to where they keep the idols, and one by one he keeps picking off their idols. He takes the idol, he smashes it up and they're made out of wood. So after he smashes it up, he comes to me and he brings me the wood that is there that's leftover from the smashed up idol. And he gives it to me and he says that the BB has used this to burn your fire. He brings me firewood because he
knows I'm cold. I don't have anybody else to go out to get me firewood to earn a living to do anything. So he comes to me every night smashes up these idols brings a wood and gives it to me and he says here you go. Muslim sister. Please take this wood and burn your fire.
For Ghana, the Allahu taala anuja Malika Mencia nice Albin named Hina halakhah in the hoobler iraq
i live in a Vitaly radi Allahu taala and towards the end of his life when he went to Iraq to Kufa salvin who knave came with him as well, and resided there with Alia the Allahu taala. And who, when salvin Hanif passed away, I live at the Allahu taala and who used to tell the story. Do y'all know who Sallie Mae First, let me tell you something, honey for us. And he would tell the story that he knew about a Muslim sister that was by herself. And he looked after this Muslim sister. And he made sure he brought her wood every single day to burn or fire throughout the cold desert night.
And used to talk about this after Salomon honey passed away, not to compromise as a closers, deed for the sake of Allah. But after he passed away, he talked about this.
You know, so again, you see a couple of things, powerful lessons. So the all the Sahaba at that time, these were all immigrants, poor, hand to mouth bit.
Everyone was basically barely getting by. But the sense of community was so strong. See, they with a lot of times, you know, just today early are talking to the students about the fact that faith is oftentimes a result or a byproduct of community.
Right community can help reinforce your faith, but also understand that community is a byproduct of faith. If we are true believers, it will result in US naturally being a community, that bonds that is connected and that cares and looks after one another. The fact that we aren't we don't behave that way. Right now, it shows a serious, fundamental lack of faith.
This was the faith of the Sahaba of the Allahu talanoa. And it brought them together as a community.
And it made no difference whoever who that person was, where they were from, where they were coming from, what was going on with them, they looked after one another, they tended after one another. You see also the element of the of chivalry, you know, a lot of times we especially with the students, we we talk about the technicalities, and the fear can be a dab and as soon as the etiquette of gender relations and gender interaction is there's a lot that we have to figure out in regards to this. And a lot of times it can be very problematic. But we also have to understand that there is a beautiful balance in the middle. That the etiquette and the the rules of gender interaction in Islam
don't require us to basically, you know, disavow any knowledge of the other gender to completely not acknowledge the fact that they even exist right?
At the same time, we are at the opposite extreme most of the time our communities where there is very inappropriate in interaction between the genders, but also understand that recognizing and realizing who is in the community and looking after them and tending to their needs. It does not violate the rules of gender interaction. In fact, it's an obligation as an oma as a community. And we see this man going and giving this firewood to the sister to this woman at the door and then walking away from there in a very dignified fashion.
But think about also the consequences of this brother, either on one end, like I talked about, lacking faith and not looking after his Muslim sister, what would happen to her, who would tend to her who would look after her who would help her? Or if this brother was practicing such a high level of piety, that this brother had become more pious than Islam itself, to the point where he's like, no one was stuck for the law.
That's a woman like a woman Why is being a woman a subtle law? She does not commit a sin by being a woman. Right? It's not the Joshua will either be law, right? But he understands that I have a responsibility towards my Muslim sister. I have a responsibility to everyone in my community. And if it's a Muslim sister, it's a Muslim sister. Right. So we also see the balance that the Sahaba had in terms of Deen in terms of community. And the other thing is that we see I live in a Vitaly radi Allahu taala. No talking about him, talking about him and praising him and telling people stories about him. And what an inspiration it is that 1400 years later, we're sitting here halfway across
the world in Irving, Texas, reading about the good deed of Sydenham. AIFF. And what an inspiration it is, what type of legacy will we leave behind? What type of legacy will we leave behind? Will our good deeds be remembered by people? Will our kindness be appreciated by people will people make dua for us for the good deeds, the kindness that we show to them, and these and nobody even knew about this good deed until it radi Allahu Jelani tells the story when this is happening at the time of ijarah.
So that means that the Allahu taala who is telling the story in Iraq and Kufa mean this story has been told 35 years later, it wasn't some high profile deed. He didn't build some mustard or minaret, or something of that nature. He didn't do something grand and huge, high profile, right press conference, media attention to a small little good deed, but such a powerful good deed that 35 years later sitting in gufa. I live in a man whose caliber is unmatched. I live in a Vitaly missing eyes. Remember this man doing the most unbelievable good deed. These were the Muslims. You know a lot of times we talk about like what I would give to be in the company of the prophets. A lot of them
remember what I've delivered, Massoud said, the last panel is Allah chose these people. If daramola hos subhanahu wa taala, the Sahaba in obese Allah Allah Allah, Allah chose these people for the companionship of his beloved messenger, Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, because they were looking at the qualities that these people exhibited. So now going on from here, then the scholars of Sierra differ basically,
even as half relates in one narration of the Sierra, the Sierra women, he Sham also states this, that the prophets, a lot of them stayed there in Cuba amongst the people have been well, I'm going to be out of Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and that's when he is during that time he established and then Friday was the day that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam departed from there. And so he stayed with them about four days. So that's one narration. However, in another narration that in his heart also mentions from Abdullah bin Idris that the prophets a lot of them stayed there amongst the people of Oba Yamuna Anna who alayhis salam, Acoma, Fagin samanya
Shalala, he stayed for 18 days.
Another narration, which even caffeine gives preference to
is that Imam Bukhari Rama Allahu taala in his he, he mentioned the fact that from from the wire from the 13th of zuri and orwa, that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stayed amongst the people of Baba, Baba Asha Laila. He stayed for 10 odd some nights, basically free stayed for about a week and a half, 10 days, 12 days, 13 days, he stayed for a little less than two weeks, anywhere between 10 days and two weeks, that the profits a lot of them stayed in between there somewhere. And there's a whole slew of other narrations as a 13 days, 12 days, 14 days somewhere as far as saying like three weeks, but the majority of the scholars have basically taken to the wire every mumble
hottie it comes through a very solid chain as well, that the prophets a lot of them stayed there for about 10 or 12 days and that's
Basically these will make sense. So there was one Friday that occurred there in Cuba, and then before the next Friday, basically on the next Friday, so if the profits a lot of them arrived on a Monday, he stayed there from Monday, all the way till the not that Friday but the next following Friday morning. Alright, so that brings the the tally up to about what 12 days. So the profits, a lot of them stayed for about these 12 days. And then he departed on the morning of Friday on his way into the city of Medina. And during this time that the profits allowed him was there in this in the city of Cuba in the suburb of Cuba. That is also when the masjid of Cobo was established. And of
course he mentions the virtue of amount of money Asad, radi Allahu taala, on Houma that he was one of the first people who came and started to construct a mustard of boba and Allah subhanaw taala granted him the honor of doing so. But the merchant of COBOL was established at this time, the prophets a lot of them prayed in this Masjid. And from there on that morning of Friday he departs from Cuba to on his way into the city of Medina, and inshallah This is where we'll start off. The next following session inshallah, the prophets allottee salams actual arrival into the city of Medina itself. He prays a lot to Juma on his way into Medina. And then he arrives in Medina and
we'll talk about the rest of the the basically the conclusion of the hegemon where the prophets, a lot of them are rather Allah subhanaw taala divinely selects the location of the machines of the profits, a lot of them were in how the profits a lot of human himself resides as a guest temporarily until the homeless, the machine is constructed in a home is constructed for him. And we'll talk about the rest of that in the next following session. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us all the ability to practice everything that was said and heard. Remember the fact that we talked today about the powerful lessons in terms of building and establishing the community. You know, we read this
even today, and this is something we'll talk about later, but with the students at the seminary, we were reading the narration in the seat of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about the honeymoon Jeddah that the the tree trunk that the prophets a lot of them used to lean against before the member was constructed that when the member was made, and the Prophet system got up from there, and he sat on the member and how that tree trunk began to that stump began to cry and moan *a that an ABS a law violation because we miss the profits a lot easier them AlHassan Busey Ramallah hotel I used to say to people, when lecturing about the Sierra, he would say to people that a tree trunk, a tree stump,
would cry at longing and missing. The Prophet salallahu alaihe salam out of its love for the prophets of Allah, Allah. What is wrong with us?
That we don't long to meet the prophets a lot of them that we don't have as much love for the prophets, a lot of them as a tree stump had and then remember generation one has been Malik says the most joyous day in our lives was the day the prophecy summarized in Medina and the Saturday was the day the prophets allottee son passed away. build a relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala through knowing the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, read his life read his sila. Read it to your children.
You know when Fridays come along and just it doesn't even have to be Friday send Salawat daily, regularly on the messenger Salallahu alaihe salam, talk about him learn about him read about him strive to be like Him. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant tells us all the ability to be more and more like the messengers of Allah Subhana Allah He will be humble he's 100 columbium Nick Michelle de la ilaha illa Anta sakurako Vanessa willick
