00:00:30--> 00:00:37

shala continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a Syrah tuneable he had the prophetic biography.

00:00:39--> 00:01:18

In the previous sessions that we had, we've been off for a couple of weeks, due to just travel and I guess a lot of folks were also probably on holidays, but I was traveling so I wasn't able to make it the last couple of weeks, but we're picking back up this week in sha Allah, where we had left off was that the Prophet of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam, we had spent quite a few weeks, quite a few sessions talking about the higit on the migration of the prophets, a lot Eastern from Mecca to Medina. And the whole process of that and the experiences that the Prophet salami son had during the course of that journey, and a lot of the lessons that we can learn from a lot of those experiences.

00:01:19--> 00:01:59

And then where we last left off was that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had arrived in the city of Cuba, which was to better understand what you could consider a suburb of Medina. And the prophets, a lot of them had arrived there. And the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam had used that opportunity to establish a Masjid there nearby, and also to establish the bonds of brotherhood between the Mahajan and the unsought and a lot of the initial community discourse had taken place at that time the previous session. We actually talked quite a bit about the profits a lot he some of his vision and strategy for developing and building of a community. What we'll be talking about this

00:01:59--> 00:02:42

particular week is that the profits a lot of a sudden after spending and I mentioned the different variety of different narrations which talks about how many days of profits a lot he spent in Uber, but the more sound if you will account and that is the opinion of mumble hottie what he's giving preference to as well. And that is that the profits a lot he soon spent 12 days at the place of Baba, and then Friday morning after praying Salat and fauja infobar The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam set out to move towards the city of Medina el Medina Tijuana Voila. Now you have to understand that you know even at that time this you know Medina being a lot smaller in them of course traveling

00:02:42--> 00:03:19

on foot or by camel the profits a lot even was actually traveling by camel, and it's even discussed which camel this was. But majority of the scholars of Ceylon Hadith say that the camel it was the one by the name of cassava, cassava. So the profits a lot easier was writing this camel so we understand that travelling by camel from Cuba to Medina would take a little bit longer than maybe what we're accustomed to what we're used to. But what you have to factor in what you have to take into account is that the prophets a lot of Islam is not traveling by himself is not just him in Abu Bakar radi Allahu anhu and in fact, some of the accounting that Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu was

00:03:19--> 00:03:24

writing on the camel of the prophets, a lot of December they were writing together.

00:03:25--> 00:04:08

But there was the entire community was walking along with them. And in fact, the scene is described within the books and see have seen on Hadith that as the prophets, a lot of these men was riding this camel, literally hundreds of men surrounded the camel of the prophets a lot a Salaam and we're walking along with him. So, this was not just a journey or traveling from one location to another, this was a procession and the entire procession was moving. So, it was a very slow, deliberate journey from the from the machine of Cuba to what would eventually be designated as a machine whenever we leave the Prophet's mosque in Medina salallahu alayhi wasallam. So, this whole

00:04:08--> 00:04:50

procession is taking place is slow, elaborate journey from point A to point B. Now, on the way, basically once they eventually set up from Koba, and they started moving, it was time for her on the way and so the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stopped in a neighborhood of bunu Salim the prophets a lot of them stopped in the neighborhood of blue Solomon it says Fie buckling daddy. It was kind of like a spot in between some of the mountains there around Medina or right at the outskirts of Medina. And it was a neighborhood of bunu Salim. I'm going to talk a little bit more in the coming sessions, a whole discussion elaborate. We'll just take one session to talk about the

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

layout of Medina. What was the geographical layout of Medina what was the soul what was the social structure the economic system that was prevalent in Medina

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

And how was Medina exactly laid out. But what you can understand right now is that there were basically nine neighborhoods that Medina was made up of. So think of them again as like major subdivisions that we would have like under loose right over here. For people listening, I'm not talking about Spain and Dallas I'm talking about under loose in Irving, Texas. So think of like a neighborhood or a subdivision. So Medina was carved out into these nine major neighborhoods, nine subdivisions, and these belong to different tribes and different families within those tribes. And some of them even belong to the Jews of Medina, specifically beneath a new PA, they were resident

00:05:39--> 00:06:18

within Medina, and the other two Jewish tribes banana lead, were a couple of miles north of Medina and blue pureza were a couple of miles south of Medina. But like I said, we'll talk more in detail later. So the prophets a lot he was traveling and he's in the neighborhood of a new Salim when the time of the hood comes. So this was Friday, this was a Joomla. If you recall, if you remember we talked about this a few sessions ago, that the prophets a lot of them had instructed, Mousavian or made or the Allahu taala known as I'd been surah. As I've been through a lot, I was one of the leaders of the unsought and one of the leaders of the community, the new Kaaba, the prophets, a lot

00:06:18--> 00:06:29

of them had appointed in Medina. So he was the organizer mazovian are made was the preacher that the prophets a lot of them had sent, and he had instructed them to institute

00:06:30--> 00:07:11

Friday Prayer Salatu Juma, so this was something that was already going on. So the prophets a lot of them stopped here in the neighborhood of a new Salim and said we will pray Juma are here and they conducted the Juma prayer in the prophets, a lot of the same games, a hookah there, there are some accounts of what he talked about in the hood, but they're not very authentically narrated. So I'm not relating the entire clip by here and majority of the scholars of Sierra usually do not mention that hookah because it's not very authentically narrated. But from those weak narrations, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam talked about the prioritizing the life of the hereafter

00:07:11--> 00:07:51

over the life of this world. This was the hood above the prophets a lot he said them, he talked about how human beings will live will experience these two realms, dunya and akhira. And he talked about what does what is the dunya when compared to the aka and what is the magnitude and the greatness of the hereafter when you compare it to the temporal nature of the life of this world, and then the prophets allottee some emphasize and encourage the companions to prioritize the hereafter over the life of this world. And it was a very short, brief Goodbye, even if you take those weak narrations into account. Basically, the whole thing is written out into maybe five or six lines, and

00:07:51--> 00:08:12

in the style of delivery of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, it probably was not more than 10 minutes, if even that much 10 to 12 minutes was the Hooda of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so he gives the hook by there. And this was the first Juma that was led that was conducted that was instituted by the prophet of Allah salallahu alayhi wasallam

00:08:13--> 00:08:57

now when he concludes with the Jamaat footbaww he next thing you know, when he gets on his camel, he's surrounded by some of the men of Banu Salim, the tribe that whose neighborhood he's in, and specifically some of their leaders are at ban bin Malik and abasement. obata bin novela they're at the head of this little contingent his group and they are holding the rope of the camel of the prophets allowed him to she Campbell and they are saying of payment in denial rasulillah stay with us so messenger of Allah and he said and they tell him a femur Indian I feel either the will or that he will manage it. Stay with us we have numbers, we are ready and we will protect you a messenger of

00:08:57--> 00:09:40

Allah stay with us please. The Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam said hello sebelah hoffa in Hama Mora the prophets a lot of a sudden, you know, showing them appreciation for their offer. He said, leave the rope of the she camel she is she is under the command, which meant that she is under the command of Allah. In another generation the prophets a lot a Salaam said to them specifically that the she camel will stop. Hey through unzila Nia Allah, the she camel will stop where Allah has decreed for me to take up residence. But until then leave the she camel. It's not even me who's directing her. It's directly under the guidance in the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala and

00:09:40--> 00:09:44

this was part some of the scholars of Sierra have discussed the wisdom of this.

00:09:45--> 00:09:49

And this is very important for us to take into consideration because this is a lesson in leadership.

00:09:50--> 00:10:00

Before the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam arrived here in Medina to menorah or rather even before the Prophet syllogism before Islam came to you

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

Yesterday, Al Madina munawwara. The two major Arab tribes were Osen husbands. Then there were three major Jewish tribes, like I mentioned before a new partner lead in Croatia. And there was pretty much you can say all out civil war in this part of this region, there was full scale civil war in this region. Olson has Raj had declared war against one another. And they had had a very, they had mad multiple, very severe battles, where hundreds of people were killed. And that's huge for that time. Hundreds of people were killed. We were just covering Sierra at the seminary with the students. And about 14 Sahaba died in the Battle of butter were Shaheed in about the weather for 14,

00:10:45--> 00:11:28

one, four, and about 70 of the moose unicorn fell into battle of butter, even though the Battle of butter was such a huge scene. So now imagine if hundreds of people died from all sides, think about how severe that must have been, as the equivalent in our times of 1000s of people dying in a bottle. So it's very, very severe. And ocean hazards had waged war against one another. And a new car had teamed up with Oh a with cuznsod from the Arabs, and the other two Jewish tribes, but Luna lead and binuclear, Ava had teamed up with ohss. So even the Jewish tribes were split. And so everybody had been fighting each other. And the last major battle that they had had was five years before the

00:11:28--> 00:12:08

prophets Allah arrived in Medina. And that was known as your mobile If, on one day, hundreds of people were killed from all different tribes, whose very severe. Now if you take into account, this was only five years ago, what that tells you is that the wounds were still very, very fresh. So things were still very delicate. Now Islam had come Yes, and Islam had now been there for a year or two years, almost. Right, really solidly. And so things were starting to take root and establish, and they were getting past issues. But the profits along the sin was very sensitive to this particular dynamic there in Medina. And he understood that the prophets a lot, he said, I'm going

00:12:08--> 00:12:54

one way or another would show preference to any one tribe over another. And it would just bring about old issues and maybe, you know, conflict that had been put to rest previously. And so the prophets, a lot of them not wanting to stir any wounds, the profits are lovely, some abstained from this. Secondly, even if there wasn't this, there, there wasn't this is history that was already there. Even if there wasn't this history, the profits a lot. He said them himself verbally. Choosing any one tribe or any one neighborhood or family, or even person for that matter, would possibly lead to others feeling slighted. Because of the profits. A lot of these home stays with somebody that

00:12:54--> 00:13:31

nobody knew of before. Like he himself decides I'm going to go stay with that person, someone like us. I've been through rara, who was one of the founders of the Muslim community in Medina to munawwara could very easily say like, Well, what about me? I was one of the first people that came to you all the way there in Makkah. I came and met you over there, I gave you an oath of allegiance. Nobody was following you. And I establish the whole community here I hosted Osama bin Ahmed, I did this idea What about me, and even if he wouldn't disrespect the promises of some because it's about the utmost respect, he would still feel bad possibly. So the prophets allowed him to abstain from

00:13:31--> 00:14:11

all of this to protect everyone from all of this. There was this divine plan. The prophets a lot of them said this is in the hands of a lot. It's a decision of ally himself. And for in the hammock Moodle. This Shi camel is being guided by Allah subhanaw taala so leave it be and the narrations which are mentioned by many different scholars. Mr. Mohammed no humble mentions this in his Muslim even as Huck mentioned this in the car that it mentioned that as the profits along some pass through every single neighborhood, when you pass through the neighborhood of bunu Baba, they similarly came he had been lobbied for took no armor came and grabbed the rope of the she camel. They said hello ma

00:14:11--> 00:14:54

Elena rasulillah come to us on messenger of Allah. We're ready. We're prepared. We got everything taken care of. And again the process of very politely said hello Sabina, half a nama Buddha leaves the she camel, it's under the command of Allah. It's under the guidance of Allah. Then he passes through berusaha same thing occurs he passes through the neighborhood of blue Hadith, the same thing occurs. The prophets a lot of some dead passes through the neighborhood of Benita Id been a nutjob now, but nobody even ajar. This is a very interesting family, if you will. And the reason why they're so interesting is because they are related to the profits. A lot of them the great

00:14:54--> 00:14:58

grandmother of the profits, a lot of them was from this family

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

was from this family.

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

So Hashem his wife was from this family.

00:15:05--> 00:15:41

The mother of Ogden looked on it, the grandfather of the process. So the great grandmother of the prophets, a lot of them she's from this family. So when the prophets a lot of them pass through there, they came to the prophets a lot easier than they send some of their leaders so lead to be in the face. And his father, they came and they said, Yeah, Rasulullah Halima Illa Aquatica come live with your uncle's, where your uncle so come live with your uncle's and the prophets, a lot of them again, excuse himself and he said that you'll have to leave the sheet Campbell she is under the instruction of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:15:42--> 00:16:01

And the prophets, a lot of them kept passing through there until he finally came to so before I talk about where the prophets a lot of them ended up along this way as he passed as he is passing through neighborhood after neighborhood after a neighborhood, the profits a lot of them passed by the home of Abdullah bin who begun salute.

00:16:02--> 00:16:10

Filipino begun soon I'm Filipino Raven saloon is the man who later on go on to be known as raw Eastern Africa,

00:16:12--> 00:16:55

the leader of the hypocrites, and he was a major force against the Muslims and the community of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So he was very difficult to deal with. And he created quite a few problems. later on down the road for the Prophet sallallahu sallam. The prophets, a lot of them had already been told he was from huzur Raj, and he was a leader of the profits, a lot of them had been informed that Yeah, rasulillah, we would appreciate it. If you could show maybe a little bit more, you know, you could show a little bit of love to Abdullah and obey Him in school. And the reason for that also, Lola is that he is a leader of huzur. Raj, we had pretty much to put boy if

00:16:55--> 00:17:15

the wars behind us, we had agreed we had developed a consensus that we would declare him to be the leader of the entire city of Africa, that he will be the leader. And you'll be the arbitrator and you'll be the final decision. And the final word when it comes to our affairs here. And

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

even not only just Osen hazaragi Arab tribes, but even the Jewish tribes that agreed to this. So all of this was pretty much set until a few individuals come back from the season of Hajj, start talking about the fact that they met the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And from there on the rest is history. Now majority of the city is Muslim majority of our tribes are Muslim now, and we wait for you and we look to you and we're ecstatic that you're here to lead us now. And he feels like he's been sidelined because of this whole process. And we feel like his feelings might be a little hurt. So if you could show him a little love, that'd be that'd be great. That'd be fantastic.

00:17:57--> 00:18:42

We could maybe avoid some type of conflict and the humility of the prophets, a lot of them was such, the Prophet says it was such a pragmatic leader, that the prophets alabi some took this request, not just under consideration, but he obliged. And so as he was passing through these neighborhoods, he stopped outside the house of Abdullah new Bateman soon as someone to go and request him that the profits allowed him would like to meet with him and would like to, you know, greet him. And so some of the members of his tribe, hustlers they went and they, the Muslims, they went and they knocked the door, when he answered the door, he's like, what, what do you need? What do you want? He knew

00:18:42--> 00:19:10

that this this whole, you know, there's this there's this all this commotion in Medina today because the prophets, a lot of them is coming. So he was aware. So he was kind of hiding out inside of his house, when they knocked the door and they asked him to come out. Then the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Excuse me, so the process that was waiting for him and when they asked him to come out and meet with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, of delivering a baby in saloon, he says, own door, and levena the outcome for Angela, Allah him.

00:19:11--> 00:19:49

They said the prophets, a lot of him is requesting permission to come into your house and visit you, like pay you a personal visit. And so he opens the door and he says to the point where the profits allowed him could also hear him. He says, Why don't you go and visit those people who have called you here? I didn't ask you to come to my city. I didn't ask you to come here. Go visit those people who called you here. I don't have time for this and he slams the door, and he shut the door. And they went to the profits allowed him in the the process of hurt him and they told the prophets Allah, Allah, this is what he's saying. sobbing or bad or the Allahu taala. And who comes to the

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

prophets a lot. He said, I'm just trying to again, make sure that there's no hard feelings. And he says to the prophets, a lot of him la Carmen De La Hoya, Elena bkr rasulillah. We're in our new Lido Anakin.

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

Da da da see here touch when Maluku Alina rasulillah we were gonna make him a leader, but then Allah blesses with you. And that's why he's just having trouble dealing with that reality. So please excuse him on messenger of Allah. The Prophet system didn't say anything he got back onto his camera and he continued on his way, until the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam finally reaches

00:20:24--> 00:21:06

a particular area neighborhood in this was the area, the neighborhood of bumalik even ajar. bumalik been ajar, he reaches this particular neighborhood. And there are two there are a couple of different narrations. One of the narration says that the camel of the prophets a lot of them came and stopped right there. One of the narration says that the she camel of the Prophet system sat down one time, and then it stood back up, and then walked forward. And he made a U turn, it turned around and it came back and sat down at the same exact spot again, to make it very clear that this was not coincidental. It was not accidental. The animal didn't need any rest or anything like that. But this

00:21:06--> 00:21:15

is very This is it. This is a location and where the she camel sat down on basically the path, the road where it sat down.

00:21:16--> 00:21:36

On one side was this empty plot. It was an empty piece of land. And that deeply piece of land was used. A lot of times what was there at that moment was that bunches of dates were laid out there to dry them basically in the sun to dry them up. dates were laid out. So it was an empty plot of land.

00:21:38--> 00:21:42

The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Who does this belong to?

00:21:43--> 00:21:55

And more I've been afra radi Allahu taala and who stepped up and told the messengers a lot he said them that this belongs to two boys so headed into Haley Ebner

00:21:56--> 00:22:23

silence who hailed the sons of armor, they are your team, they are orphans, their father has passed and I am their guardian, I'm their caretaker. And this plot of land belongs to them on messenger of Allah. The Prophet of Allah salami, Sam says Allah subhanho wa Taala has commanded the she camel to stop here, this is where the masjid will be established. And some apartments and rooms will be built next to it. And that is where I will reside with my family. Now, immediately

00:22:25--> 00:22:48

some of the narrations mentioned that the two boys Sally and Sue, hey, they stepped up and they said O Messenger of alights a gift from us to you. And the prophets, a lot of them refused. He said absolutely not. And again, you see, the the values of the prophets, a lot of the some of the ethics and the morality of the prophets, a lot of them, I want to I want you to really understand why a lot of times we don't analyze these particular details. Number one,

00:22:49--> 00:23:10

of course, we can obviously say that the profits a lot is him due to his position of leadership, not take advantage of anyone in the least bit. Secondly, even if the profits a lot, he's someone who requested the land, just like that, without any payment, he wouldn't have been taking advantage of them for personal reasons. It would have been used for the community. It would have been communal property, it was the machine.

00:23:12--> 00:23:33

So it still wouldn't have been for personal use personal gain. But even though it would have been for the community, the profits alarmism taught us that just because something is for the cause of Islam is for the sake of the community, it is still not okay to use that as justification to take advantage of someone.

00:23:34--> 00:24:12

So there's no there's no there's no concept within our Deen in our religion. Somebody can volunteer, somebody can offer somebody can donate. But we cannot take somebody else's wealth or possessions and justify it by saying that this is for the community. It doesn't work that way. There's no justification for them. That's not how our Deen is structured. And the prophets are letting him set that precedent. That example. Remember I talked about when Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala who brought the she camel for the journey? He said no, you tell me how much it costs and he said he understood I'm giving it to you. He said you tell me how much it costs. I will not ride the camel until I have

00:24:12--> 00:24:30

purchased it from you. And finally the profits I'm just with reviews and they were in a hurry to leave. So Booba he forced them over kind of the Allahu taala on who to tell him how much she came across. And he said I will pay you this much and then he wrote the she camel, even though it was further hinged on further migration for the oma

00:24:32--> 00:24:59

Amina Allah but still I will purchase this from you. Similarly here, the the orphans themselves while I've been Freising, take it on messenger of Allah. He says it's not yours. You're just a guardian suicided into Haley orphans themselves. They stepped out of school a lot. Of course take it and he says no. And he says, tell me how much this is. And finally somebody else stepped in and told the prophets a lot of them. This is how much

00:25:00--> 00:25:32

This type of a property would normally sell for and the profits a lot the sum total. Boubacar the Allahu taala No, I want you to offer this much I want you to hand over this much money to them. And the money was offered over and then the profits, a lot of them said Now we will build the masjid here. So these were, again, the ethics of the prophets, Allah de Sena. This is leadership, leading by example, this is what it means. So now that they've designated this plot of land, this piece of land now where's the profits a lot, I'm supposed to stay because it's just an empty plot of land. So,

00:25:33--> 00:25:44

abou au Berlin sorry, not the Allahu taala and whose door was right across from this plot of land his home was directly across it was the closest home to this plot of land.

00:25:45--> 00:25:57

He came to the profits a lot he said he had a su la My home is the closest home to this land to where the machinery of mentally operable manager, Elon Musk.

00:25:58--> 00:26:16

So the profits a lot of them said then fine, I will go ahead and stay with you until the facilities are ready. And I mentioned that Abu Bonanza, the Allahu taala, who took the luggage of the profits a lot he took them and ran into his home. Just so excited and elated by the fact that the prophets, a lot of them would be staying with them.

00:26:18--> 00:26:43

Now when the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, he carries a luggage in and he takes a luggage and he it basically takes the luggage into the house. So profits a lot. He seldom joins him inside of the home in the profits a lot. He seldom tells him that if it's okay with you, I'll stay downstairs there was two stories. He said I'll stay downstairs and you and your family can stay upstairs.

00:26:44--> 00:27:22

And the profits a lot of them told them specifically that this will be easier. How is haleiwa as holliman young Shana, that this will be easier for me and easier for the people that will visit us and the word he used was that we're going to be visited by a lot of people. I'm going to have I'm going to be receiving a lot of visitors. It'll just be easier. They won't have to pass through your residence to get all the way upstairs. So all stay downstairs your family can stay upstairs undisturbed, unperturbed and they can stay there. So that was the arrangement. Now abou Belen Sati. And of the Allahu taala. And who he actually related himself, he says that I was uncomfortable from

00:27:22--> 00:27:25

the very first day, the prophets a lot he sounds a little football Adam.

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

lm rufo pelada right command comes before the etiquette. So I the profitsystem requested downstairs, so I gave him downstairs. But I was uncomfortable from the very first day, because I went upstairs and I told my wife that I just feel awkward walking around, you're on top and the prophet SAW someone's underneath us. It just feels disrespectful. You know, what I'll mention here as a little side point, because this is why we study the Quran. This is why we study Hadith. This is why we study Sierra, to take lessons from it. You know, a lot of times when we talk about

00:28:00--> 00:28:30

like you might remember sometimes people are like putting the muzzle off on the ground. People don't like it, they'll tell you that's cliff and other don't do that don't put a muzzle on the ground. Immediately. Someone's a brother wizard did he show me a hadith where it says you can't put a muzzle on the ground. I don't got a hadith that says you can't put myself on the ground but either be something within our Deen, what kind of a deleted what kind of an evidence is there for the fact that if the processor is downstairs, you shouldn't feel comfortable upstairs. There's no evidence for that. Um, it might not be a concept even for someone, but I will you will and sorry, felt

00:28:30--> 00:29:08

uncomfortable with the fact and that shows you that there is a there is a there is room for someone practicing etiquette I'd have been respect as long as it doesn't cross some type of a line in terms of academic belief. But outside of that there's always room for other and the prophets a lot of a sudden, you know, came to exemplify and teach this type of other than respect. So will you will answer you know the Allahu taala who said that I just felt uncomfortable. And so he says that me and my wife, a boy you will Ansari and he says oh my You, me and my wife. We actually the first couple of days we spent it like all the way in the corner.

00:29:09--> 00:29:47

Like we were just afraid to even walk around. And not only just because of the other aspect of it walking around probably makes noise and things like that if you live in an apartment complex, you know about that very well. So he said we just didn't want to disturb the process and we felt this was codevilla dumb. So we should just stay in a corner of the upstairs like apartment just felt uncomfortable walking around on top of the profits a lot he sent them until finally he says that. One day we had an incident. I had kind of like a water bowl or a water dish. Right like kind of like a container for water like a clay pot that we used to keep water in and somebody knocked it over

00:29:47--> 00:30:00

broke it just accidentally and the water spilled out all over the floor. And of course, you know it can happen even in our homes today. So imagine those types of homes. The water would leak through and start

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

drip through. And he says that me and my wife, we freaked out.

00:30:05--> 00:30:15

And the only thing that we could see that would be enough to soak up because it was like a big old clay pot full of water. So it was a lot of water. The only thing we could find that was big enough to soak up the water was our blanket.

00:30:16--> 00:30:43

I mean, again, you're talking about in the desert, so at night, there's no heaters and things like that. So you need like a big thick, you know, wool blanket, or like the skin of a camel or something like that to keep you kind of warm. So the only thing we had big enough was this blanket that we sleep in the half. So we just grabbed it, and we throw it down on the water and we soaked up all the water with it, so that it wouldn't drip down and leak down into the residence of the profits a lot.

00:30:46--> 00:31:16

And so Alhamdulillah we were able to clean that mess up. There was no water leaking through. But we had a problem. We had a wet blanket. So we just put it out to dry. But of course it was evening time it didn't dry right away. And so that night we just, you know, laid in bed kind of just shivering at night, not even able to sleep properly. What what's the vert what's the lesson in all of this, it again shows you the love the respect that they had for the messenger sala de Sena

00:31:17--> 00:31:49

and abou bill Ansari and the Allahu Allahu Tez a lot of these very interesting stories. So these are the stories that he used to tell people long afterwards. And in fact, there are narrations which mentioned that even after the passing of the prophets a lot he said them, that's a hora de la Allahu taala. And they used to like to sit with Abu bill Ansari, whenever new people would accept Islam or people would visit Medina, these to come to will, you will and Saudi Anisha tell us stories, how was it like to live with the prophets along the center. And he used to tell these stories. So he said that, you know, we used to my wife would cook food and we would send it down for the profits a lot

00:31:49--> 00:31:50

they sent him

00:31:51--> 00:32:24

and he would eat from it. But the profits a lot of them, you know, he had a very limited diet, he didn't eat a lot. So he would eat however much he would eat and then he would send up the remainder of the food because he didn't want it to go to waste. And we used to then kind of wait for the leftover food to come back. And then we you see the leftover food and we specifically because the profits are so mad so much that could be a meaning of Academy mega league. Right the profits or something ahaadeeth when he's teaching edible eating to young Sahaba he says he with your right hand and eat from in front of you. So they would have a cassava, they would have like a big dish, and the

00:32:24--> 00:32:50

processor would only eat from in front of him and he would eat a limited quantity amount. So when he would send the dish back up, there was only just a little bit that had been eaten from in front of the profits allottee seven so they said that not only would we eat the leftovers then but we would do is we would move the food into the area from where the profits allottee somebody eaten and we would eat from there. There's an authentic narration mentioned by Imam Bukhari and the scholars of the Sierra and he said, we did this to get the bulk of the blessing from the prophets a lot. He sent him

00:32:51--> 00:33:09

so much love and respect for the prophets a lot he sent him. So we would remove the food into that area and we would eat from that. He says until one day we sent down some food and my wife had cooked it in. There are different variations. Some variations mentioned that it was it had a lot of onions in it. Some narrations mentioned a lot of garlic in it.

00:33:10--> 00:33:16

And we sent the food down in the profits and some received it and then he sent it back up. And he hadn't touched it.

00:33:17--> 00:33:18

He hadn't touched it.

00:33:19--> 00:33:21

So he says, we got so worried.

00:33:22--> 00:33:46

You know like you can imagine sometimes even the guest comes in something like that happens. Like the wife is crying and he's like, you know, standing outside the room like Is everything okay? So so we have like a complete meltdown like the promises are needed. And so we asked jasola there are multiple generations in one he says jasola didn't bother you do not like this food, wondering even as the process of a hot on.

00:33:48--> 00:34:08

Did we send you like hot on food? Like Is everything okay are rasulillah and so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells him he goes not wrong. But he said I didn't eat it because I don't like eating this food because of the garlic and the onion. And then he told him why again, he told him there's nothing wrong with it. But he told him for any onaji manleigh tanaji.

00:34:09--> 00:34:11

I talked to people you don't talk to.

00:34:13--> 00:34:52

For in new una de Monterrey. She says that I have very personal conversations. And what he was referring to was the angels in the melodica. She said the angels in america come to me gibreel Ali Salam comes to me, and the smell of onions and garlic is something that they don't like, and that's why it's from the adverb of the profits a lot. He said that he didn't. He advised against you know, eating things that had a very strong stench or smell like onions and garlic before even coming to the masjid before praying. Because there are narrations, a Hadith of the Prophet says when they say when a person prays, than the angels in america directly received the words from their from the

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

mouth of the muscley and they take them up to a las panatela. So he said that, you know, don't eat

00:35:00--> 00:35:26

Like things with a very strong smell, specifically onions and garlic, and I would even extend that over to things even more problematic than that that are actually are impermissible. So, you know, if somebody does have a habit of like smoking, which is something you should give up, it's not good for your health. It's impermissible, but if somebody smokes, and you are maybe hopefully giving it up, but you should not smoke and then pray, or come to the masjid

00:35:27--> 00:35:38

because that's even more severe and even more nastier than what the prophets a lot of them talked about when he talked about was onions and garlic. Allah rose from the ground halal completely permissible. It's food.

00:35:39--> 00:36:19

Right. bustle mentioned in the Quran. Right? There's nothing wrong with it. But the prophet system still said this is from the adverb of Salah. So he said for en una de Mola tanaji. I talked to people you don't talk to you. And Abu bill, I'm sorry because of the love that he had for the process. As we've heard, he said jasola in the Accra Humala, Takara Mata Cara in a chromatic era, I dislike whatever you dislike, and they actually note about a boo boo I'm sorry that he's completely stay away from eating onions and even garlic from that point on that moment on because he said, the process of didn't need it, I ain't going to eat it either. And so that was the attitude of a boo boo

00:36:19--> 00:36:54

and Sati. So these were some of the personal stories. It also mentioned in the narrations at once the prophets. A lot of the some arrived there in Medina, the first day that he was there in Medina at the home of a boy Yuval Ansari, radi Allahu Allahu veneration mentioned that one person showed up at the door with food. And the prophets, a lot of them called them in, told them to have a seat, said see who else is outside call some people in and Everybody sit together and eat and they ate. And right when that person got done in the process, some thanked him for his hospitality and everything. And as he was leaving, it was somebody else standing at the door. At the profits, a lot

00:36:54--> 00:37:29

of them said, Alright, come on in. And he called in a bunch of people and he said, Come on, let's eat their food. As soon as that person was leaving, and he opened the door, there was like four more people standing outside all holding like plates of food. And this was like a constant thing every day, morning and evening. There are people just with food standing outside to just serve it to the profits of them and in the hope of being able to sit with the profits a lot of them and eat with the profits a lot of them and the profits of them would always invite people in specifically asked for the foot caught on the must Hakeem, you know, the the especially those who had migrated from Mecca

00:37:29--> 00:37:58

to Medina, he would ask them, call them in and share the food with them. And there was this whole community that was being built and developed this brotherhood, the sisterhood that was being developed all throughout. When they also mentioned I forgot to mention this, that when the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam stopped there in front of the masjid, which would become the masjid and the home of Abu bill and Sati would become his temporary residence for six months. The it mentions that some of the

00:37:59--> 00:38:43

women and children of that neighborhood banana jar they started to say the following couplets not new djawadi min. Banana jar you have Baba Mohammedan Manjari that they started you know God min burnin Acharya habla de mahamadou menjadi that they started to say that we are the neighbors of banana jar and look at this like great blessing that Muhammad is our neighbor. So basically their their way of saying like my neighbors, Mohammed, what's your neighbor's name? Right, who's your neighbor who lives in your neighborhood? Because Muhammad Rasul Allah, the son lives in my neighborhood. And so this was a huge source of pride in the profits a lot he said him when he heard

00:38:43--> 00:38:48

them saying this, the narrations mentioned that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi Salaam said to them that

00:38:50--> 00:39:00

hey, boonie are you expressing and showing your love for me? And he said, he will Lucha rasulillah of course on messenger Allah We love you so much. And the prophets a lot, he said an hour like

00:39:01--> 00:39:11

an hour long, an hour long. I swear by Allah I love you as well. I love you as well. In another narration, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says yada

00:39:12--> 00:39:48

yada mala who is which is a way of making a law witness God knows Allah knows and Nickleby you have broken, my love. My heart loves you. I have this natural affinity and love for you. And so the Prophet of Allah sallallahu sallam, you know, showed a lot of love to the people there and this is how the community was initially built in established. There are some narrations which go on in the next session, we'll talk about the actual building and construction of the masjid. what it was like, who was involved in it? How did they constructed what were the materials used? What was the layout and structure of it? The last thing I'll tell you is about the home.

00:39:49--> 00:39:59

The home of Abu Bakr and Sati radi Allahu taala, who later on in the life of avoidable Ansari radi Allahu taala Anu, he moved from Medina to Basra.

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

And eventually died in what we know as turkey today Constantinople.

00:40:05--> 00:40:47

But when he moved from there, Abdullah bin Ambassador the Allahu taala and who took over he told Abdullah bin our bus you take care of my house while I'm gone to Basra Abdullah bin Abbas took over the house and eventually, when in he gifted it to Abdullah or rather the narrations mentioned that Abdullah bin Abbas eventually paid a boo boo lanzado, the Allahu tanunda Let me have the house. And he moved from his house into this house, specifically saying that this is the home where the prophets allottee son lived. So he moved into that house eventually mentioned that some others Sahabi purchased it from Abdullah Ibis. And he eventually made it a walk. He just gifted it. And it

00:40:47--> 00:41:27

eventually became a place where masakan and fukada were given a place to stay. So it was eventually turned into what we would consider a homeless shelter. The home of unbelievable I'm sorry, I mean, think about the blessing of that home. Think about the sacajawea the blessing of the prophets a lot he said I'm staying in that home was that eventually that home, served as a homeless shelter for people in the blessing city of Medina. And so this is a little bit about the Prophet of Allah, Allah it seems arrival into Medina. And kind of the conversations and the things that happened, how they designated the land where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam took up residence for the first six months.

00:41:28--> 00:42:09

And what we'll talk about in the next session is the actual construction of the masjid of the prophets Allah the sermon after that, inshallah, we'll talk about a detailed layout of not just the geography but the social structure, the economics, and even some of the tribal ethnic layout of the city of Medina. And then what steps the prophets a lot of specifically took in light of the current situation of Medina in order to be able to build the ideal community that the prophets Allah was able to establish there in the blessed city of Medina. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all the ability to practice everything that was said and heard. So have a look he will be hungry he so

00:42:09--> 00:42:13

hanoch alone behind the Nashville or La ilaha illa Anta a suffering
