00:00:46--> 00:00:52

sallam, go to Sierra intensive.com to register and for more information

00:00:54--> 00:01:08

on our salat, wa salam ala rasulillah Well, Allah Allah, he was actually he admiring. inshallah, continuing with our study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a siracha number, we have the prophetic biography.

00:01:09--> 00:02:02

We've been discussing the sixth year of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam residence in the city of Medina. And in the discussion of the sixth year, we've been talking about the second half of the sixth year of higit. Ah, and specifically, the incident that we've been discussing, or rather, the, in the aftermath of the incident that we've been talking about, is known as the campaign, the battle or the incident of bunu, Al muscala. Now, biannual muster, as we talked about a number of times, but just to refresh our memory, this was a campaign that was undertaken by the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam, as the response to the tragedy of arogya. Now the incident or the tragedy

00:02:02--> 00:02:20

of Reggio was where the leader of a particular tribe had come and recruited about a about 10 Sahaba, who had requested some a delegation from the prophets allowed him to come to his people to preach to the people to educate the people.

00:02:21--> 00:03:04

And all of this was a ruse, and it was a trap that he had set. And they ended up killing eight of them, capturing two of them, taking them to Makkah and auction them off to the highest bidder to be publicly executed as a gesture of aggression against the Muslims and against the Prophet. So sermon Medina. So the Prophet that tribe, and that leader who had done basically who had, you know, put together this entire plan, the prophets, a lot of them for two years had put off, you know, dealing with him because of everything that had gone on the Battle of the trench and everything. So now in the sixth year, where the prophets a lot of a sudden found, you know, the opportunity to go and

00:03:04--> 00:03:27

handle this issue he had gone, it was not a very eventful battle, so to speak, the people retreating, eventually surrendered, I believe, if we went through it, but there was one death on the side of the Muslims. And there were about, you know, something like five or six, seven people killed on the underside of the disbelievers. So very, very minimal.

00:03:28--> 00:04:07

However, as I talked about, and I mentioned in the previous week, this incident is very well known for what happens after the battle. On the journey back from the battle, we have a few things that transpired. First and foremost, we talked about how on the journey back, we have the marriage of the prophets, a lot of these empty jovia are the Allahu taala anha, who was from that same tribe, but Mr. Alec and the profits, a lot of his marriage to her eventually led to the entire tribe being freed from custody, and, you know, most of them entering into Islam and eventually all of them becoming Muslim.

00:04:08--> 00:04:52

The second thing that it transpired that we talked about as well, was the incident of Surah Al munafo surah number 63, in which Abdullah even obey even saloon, they talked, they basically he was speaking, disparagingly about the prophets a lot examine the Muslims of Medina. And that word, or basically this conversation was overheard by young Sahabi, who brought that news to the prophets, a lot of the sudden the prophets a lot of them tried to deal with it. I'm delivering the raven saloon, lied to the face of the prophets, a lot of them and took oath and swore by God that none of it was true. The prophets a lot of these women had no choice but to just take his word for it, until it

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

lost control what Allah revealed the truth of the Quran, exposing him as a liar. And so that was the second thing that happened at this particular time.

00:05:00--> 00:05:13

And we talked about all the effects of that basically from that point on forward, Abdullah bin Laden saloon. Aside from the incident that we're going to talk about today, he really became a non factor as far as Medina and politics were concerned.

00:05:15--> 00:05:34

The third event the third thing that transpires on the journey back from the Masonic that we're going to talk about today that is a profoundly important incident from the life of the prophets a lot he said, um, is known as this little if are wiped out if, and if quite literally refers to slander.

00:05:36--> 00:06:13

This is the issue or the event of the slander of our mother and shout out the Allahu taala. Now, one of the lengthiest narrations in this Hey, if you mumble hottie is the eyeshadow the Allahu taala on his own first person account of basically everything that transpired. Even his heart also relays that same narration with a few more extra details that he was able to get from some of the other narrations. So I'll basically be kind of going through following along the narration as found in a bonus hack that has been reported and documented by all the major scholars of this era.

00:06:14--> 00:06:56

So I shadow the Allahu taala. Allah says that whenever the prophets Allah intended to travel, he would basically have kind of like a, like what we would call like a drawing or a drawing of the straws to see which of the wives of the prophets allottee sin would accompany him on the journey. So she says that we drew straws, and it was it Chateau de Allahu taala on her, who basically got the opportunity to travel with the profits a lot. He said, I'm on the journey of a nostalgic, she goes on to explain, she says, however, one little thing was that the way that the wives of the Prophet SAW the symbol travel with him was that they had what's called an Arabic a hoe doege. It's almost

00:06:56--> 00:07:39

like a canopy. Okay, so the seats on the back of a camel. So it was more like there was almost like a seat that was constructed. So not like how normally we would sit on the back of an animal with our legs hanging off the sides. That's not how they would sit so that they would be comfortable. And also for the purpose of their modesty, that basically what they had constructed was like a seat that would sit on top of the camels were kind of like a small platform that they could sit on top of, so that they could sit comfortably, like we sit on the ground. And it's almost like a couch, if you will. And then there were there were there was a canopy on top of that seat, so four pegs, and then

00:07:39--> 00:08:26

they would have kind of a curtain or a cloth that was stretched out from over it, and then draped over the size to provide that sense of privacy. So this is how the mothers of the believers would travel. And she says that I shall have the Allahu taala on hand. We know this from just historical accounts and biographical details about her. I'm shuttle the Allahu taala. Anna was a very, you know, she wasn't very, very tall. So she wasn't very tall, she was a somewhat shorter stature. And secondly, inshallah the Allahu taala, Anna was very thin, she was very light, she was very thin, right throughout the entirety of her life. So she was in that sense, she had a very small build. And

00:08:26--> 00:09:07

so because of that, she was very, very light. And she says that this had already happened a number of times. So what the procedure was that whoever was traveling, they would basically go and sit down inside of the canopy. And then whoever the Sahaba were, who had the responsibility of basically looking after the transportation of the profits a lot, he said, I'm and the transportation of his wife, they would then come, they would lift up that seed that canopy, and they would place it on the back of the camel as the camel was sitting. And then they would stand the Camel Up, and they would be on their way. And she says, because she was so light, and that whole thing was constructed out of

00:09:07--> 00:09:45

wood. So it was heavy. like think about lifting a couch, a couch is heavy on its own. Now imagine if somebody who's very, very thin somebody who's like 90 pounds, 100 pounds, right? is sitting on the couch. Right? It's not it's obviously 100 pounds more. But if the couch itself is very, very heavy made out of like solid wood, you're not going to really notice the difference because the couch itself is already so heavy, especially if there's multiple people lifting it. So she says that this misunderstanding had happened previously, that this was a common thing that sometimes I wouldn't be in there yet. And they would pick it up in place and I'd show up I'd be like, wait, I didn't get in

00:09:45--> 00:09:53

yet. And they said, oh, we're sorry. We didn't even realize you weren't in there. So because she was so again, as I mentioned, she had a small build small frame she was very light.

00:09:55--> 00:10:00

So she goes on to say that I was with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:10:00--> 00:10:34

Now I'm gonna take us back to the reason why I discussed, you know, the incidence of pseudo tomonaga boon previously because it's relevant here, if you recall, and if you weren't able to attend or listen to that particular session, you will find the recording online. But in the incidence of cervical moroccon, we talked about how, after this news broke, that this was going on, that you know, Abdullah bin Raven saloon had spoken so disrespectfully about the process that I'm, and I'm Filipino Raven saloon belong to the tribe of a husband.

00:10:35--> 00:10:48

And another incident kind of happened within that incident. I talked about it where one of the other Sahaba said that who said this, whoever said this, bring them to us, and we'll handle him.

00:10:49--> 00:11:18

And one of the Sahaba, a true Muslim from the husband says, you know, it was a cousin Reggie guy. I'm Filipino babe in saloon made these comments, you know, he was a husband you got that's why you said that. If it was in Oh, Sky, one of your relatives, one of your cousins, you never would have said that. Right misunderstanding. And they started calling back and forth kind of about their tribes. And when the prophets of the summer heard about this, he walked out and he reprimanded everyone very severely.

00:11:19--> 00:11:42

My bamboo that was Jackie, Leah, why do I hear people talking the way they used to speak before Islam, tribalism? Where did this come from us very upset. And so the profits and lobbyism realize that when this type of a fitna occurs, when this type of trouble arises, it sparks up, you know more trouble.

00:11:43--> 00:12:10

it sparks up more trouble when a leak springs, then it starts causing other problems. Right when a fire breaks out, then the fire starts to kind of like spread. So the fire is spreading here. And the prophets, a lot of them said we got to put this fire out right away. So the Prophet talathi, some implemented a strategy and the strategy was in the middle of the night, he told taba Let's go, we're going, we're moving. We're not staying here.

00:12:11--> 00:12:32

And you don't travel in the middle of the night in the desert is dangerous. It's dark, it's difficult. So you don't do that. But the prophet also said I don't care we're going and he made everybody get up and go in the middle of the night. And he made them go and go and go and go and go for like 12 hours. From like midnight, they stopped to pray fudger he said keep on walking. And he made them walk till noon.

00:12:33--> 00:13:10

And they were they were exhausted, brutal until the profits awesome. Finally at noon, he saw that they were about to start passing out. And he said stop. And the narration as we had talked about said the Sahaba didn't even have the energy to pitch their tents. You just fell on the ground and passed out. There are people just lying around everywhere just passed out on the ground. They were so exhausted, so fatigued, and the promises and let them sleep for a few hours, make them wake up, raise your heart, walk me the walk to late at night. And he just kept doing that kept giving them like three four hour breaks and make them walk for 12 hours and walk for 12 hours. Right. And the

00:13:10--> 00:13:17

processor was doing that to preoccupy them so that the fitnah the fire would stop spreading the talk the gossip would stop.

00:13:18--> 00:13:23

So because they started traveling sporadically out of the ordinary,

00:13:24--> 00:14:08

not on the schedule that they normally used to travel. Because the profitsystem was very disciplined. They used to operate with the schedule on these journeys. I shadowed the Allahu taala says, expecting that it was the nighttime I went to go use the restroom. And actually, she talks about this later in the narration that they would wait till the nighttime to use the restroom specifically Why? Because obviously there's no like a restroom facility. There's not even like an outhouse or anything. You basically have to go use the restroom like outside, right, like you know, in the bushes or whatever. So obviously for women folk for anyone in general, but particularly for

00:14:08--> 00:14:12

women folk, there's the concern of modesty hijab,

00:14:13--> 00:14:18

right. So they used to wait till nighttime to actually go use the restroom.

00:14:19--> 00:14:33

And that was strategically done so that there would be more privacy because it's nighttime. So she wasted all my time. She goes to use the restroom. And when she's and she talks about the fact that she had been given a necklace as a gift.

00:14:34--> 00:15:00

She had a necklace as a gift. And when she is on her way back when she's about halfway back, she says for llama for us to in Solomon Okay, it fell off at some point as I was kind of like fixing my clothes. The necklace fell off. Well, I didn't I didn't realize for the matter of Joshua roughly the ultimate soufiane Okay. She says about almost when I was back to the camp. I started counting

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

Feeling around my neck. You know how to you check your watch. So she said, I felt around my neck and I said, My necklace is gone.

00:15:10--> 00:15:31

And obviously, you know, you never know something is valuable. It has sentimental value. Right? So and it's nighttime, it's not like we're gonna be traveling now. So she says, I went back to go look for my necklace. And when I went to go look for my necklace, I kept on looking and looking, it's nighttime, so it's difficult. I finally found it. And when I came back

00:15:32--> 00:16:13

there at that time, they had already departed. So again, as I mentioned before the Sahaba came, they picked up the hold edge, the canopy, they picked it up, placed it on the back of the camel, and Bismillah they departed, expecting it's nighttime, she's probably, you know, resting in there. And so let's not disturb her, and they just started walking quietly. And I showed her the Allahu taala. Anna was an extremely well, I'll talk more about this. She was an extremely intelligent, very, very knowledgeable, amazing person. But one of the things about the personality of Chateau de la jolla is that she was also known to sometimes like she didn't speak unnecessarily. That's the thing. If you

00:16:13--> 00:16:52

asked her a massage, she'd she'd give you the answer. If you asked her about a Hadith of the Prophet salivation. she'd give you the Hadith, but she was known to be somebody of great Deckard, great recitation of the Quran, a lot of you know, difficult to debone. And so she didn't speak like very, very excessively. So people were kind of somewhat used to it that Chateau de la Coachella and has sometimes just would not was not very talkative. She'd be very quiet for extended periods of time, very intelligent. And so they were used to it, that she doesn't talk. And so they placed the animal and then they placed the canopy on the animal and you start walking, she gets back and she says, I

00:16:52--> 00:16:52

saw that there.

00:16:54--> 00:16:58

The right is gone. Everyone's gone. And she actually says that go MFI, Darren, when I'm

00:17:00--> 00:17:10

like there, I called Hello, hello, anybody, anybody here? Hello, anybody. And she says nobody was there, I kind of walked around and yelled in all four different directions, and nobody was there.

00:17:11--> 00:17:13

But the people had left.

00:17:15--> 00:17:33

So now, I'll remind you of a little thing. And you know, you might actually have some personal experience with this. But you know, especially for children, they use, we usually try to teach our kids that if you are in a big public place, or you're somewhere and you get lost, you get separated. What should you do?

00:17:34--> 00:18:07

Stay where you are, don't start walking around looking for them because they're walking around looking for you. And before you know, right, you're both like playing cat and mouse without realizing it. So stay where you are, because they'll come back to that particular point. Right? So I shadowed the Allahu taala. And he said, You know, this is traveling for a battle a campaign. That was the procedure. That was the rule. If you get left behind, particularly if you don't have the mode of transportation you can't catch up, then you stay where you are. Because when they realize that you're not with them, somebody will be sent to come back and get you. So she says for the first

00:18:07--> 00:18:37

two minutes between Barbie I wrapped myself up completely in my you know, kind of like cloak that I was wearing outside like the Jim Bob, the buyer that she was ranked, she said I wrapped myself completely again in it. Because again, it was a very large kind of a robe and I shut up the Allahu taala on herself is very thin. So she said I wrapped myself up in it completely. And I basically laid down kind of in a in a corner, you know, because it was the middle of the night and I said whenever they come back to get me they'll get me.

00:18:38--> 00:18:45

And she says I was laying there and soft one even Elmo Apple, a tsunami.

00:18:47--> 00:18:47

So find

00:18:49--> 00:18:54

a tsunami. Now, this is a Sahabi. He is from Makkah. He is a Mahajan. He's from Africa.

00:18:56--> 00:19:00

She says after a little while I'd been laying there he basically comes along,

00:19:01--> 00:19:27

right going into the direction of the armies going in. And allama suhaimi, who is one of the scholars of the cedaw. And one of the original sources of this era. He actually mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his strategy and this was overall part of the strategy of, you know battles at that particular time the Oscar the Jewish, the army, but the Prophet has kind of also affirmed it and implemented it, you would have a demo today,

00:19:28--> 00:20:00

you will have an advance scouting party that will move ahead of the army, go and scout out the area and try to find a suitable place to settle to camp out at and then you would have a lot to jaysh you would have a tail party. Right? You would have kind of like a group that trailed the army. The process of himself would travel with the main contingent of the army, but he would travel at the back of that contingent to just make sure everybody was there, but further there

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

was even a furthermore.

00:20:03--> 00:20:51

Alright. And the purpose it's also referred to as a Sokka asaka which kind of means like the leg, it's the last leg of the army, right like the caboose on the train. So asaka and the purpose of the southpaw was specifically yelled chuckling to my yes co to mean vi mustafina hotta yatirim be the objective of the SATA was anything that somebody might have dropped, or lost or forgotten, that it was the job of that person who was following up to basically keep pick up those lost items and articles and bring them and catch up to the army and so that they can reclaim their possessions and belongings. So he was appointed in that particular position, you trail the army back,

00:20:52--> 00:21:25

a few stay a few hours behind the army. So he comes along and he sees a shadow the Allahu taala and he wrapped up, they're lying down. And he said, when he saw our shadow, the Allahu taala, he said in Allahu Allah, He Roger, and I shadow the Allahu taala. And her being the only woman who is traveling with the army. He recognizes that it's heard. And so he says, Arina to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the wife of the Messenger of Allah, Allah from the mother of the believers has been left behind in Malaga in a lake Roger on is very upset.

00:21:26--> 00:21:31

So she says that he says at that particular time, mahalo faqeer amakhala

00:21:32--> 00:21:59

Oh, Mother, I shall like what how did you get left behind? may Allah have mercy on you? May Allah bless you. But how did you get left behind? And she says my column two, she says I didn't respond. That's how I shared with the local salon her role. She doesn't talk. Right. So she says I didn't respond to him. So he understood that I was upset, tired. So she said something about you. They get buried, he came and he sat his camel down near me.

00:22:01--> 00:22:19

wirkkala in Cubby, and he said, Please get on to the camel. What's that for me. And then he walked away. He put the camera down. He said this is for your transportation. And he walked away and turned his back. So I could comfortably get onto the animal, you know, properly cover myself position myself. Well,

00:22:20--> 00:22:42

then he came back and he held the rope of the camel. And then he started to walk ahead of the camel holding the rope facing the front. And she says from Taka sorry, and he started running. And he made the camel run, because he wanted to catch up as soon as possible. And she says that because it was the middle of the night. We reached the army around a

00:22:44--> 00:23:16

couple of hours. That's how far behind we were. So we caught up in a couple of hours. And by fudger time had to until the time we had reached them. And we got there for lots more unknown talar Roger Lou Jacobi. So they had just finished praying fudger and that's when somebody walks in holding the rope and I'm sitting on the Campbell and I arrived there and I'm delighted we were very, I was relieved The profitsystem was relieved. Anybody a D any decent human being was like 100 lie it all worked out. But she says for

00:23:18--> 00:23:19

some people started talking.

00:23:20--> 00:23:22

Some people started talking.

00:23:23--> 00:23:59

Now she goes on to say that the rumors started churning the rumor mill started churning, started turning and we got back to Medina. After getting back to Medina, just the journey itself. I wasn't used to this type of travel. Right. And we talked about it travel back in those days, was very, very harsh. Traveling our times is ours. People people fly, stay in a hotel, get in a taxi, go to an airport, fly back, and then they come back and they're like, Oh, I'm jet lagged. And I'm tired and I'm sick. Right? At that time you travel for two, three weeks through the desert.

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

Right? Imagine what the toll the toll that that takes. Right. And just to give you a little example, the great grandfather of the prophets, a lot of them whose name is Hashem. He passed away while traveling.

00:24:15--> 00:24:42

The father of the prophets, Elijah Abdullah, he passed away while traveling. The mother of the prophets Allah they sent him I'm gonna have been to Wahab she passed away while traveling, right so that's the effect of traveling at that particular time. It's very, very harsh, very truly harsh. So she says I got back from this journey. I wasn't accustomed used to it at all. And so she says I became very very sick very, very ill.

00:24:43--> 00:24:58

Now I was very sick and very ill. And I kind of also while all this rumor mill was going on, all these rumors were spreading and all this conversation was happening, and gossip was going on. The word had gotten back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:25:00--> 00:25:12

But I was still completely clueless as I shut the alarm on. The processor mattered about it. Somebody had came and told him, but I was completely clueless. So I'm trying to notice that the system seemed very, very stressed out.

00:25:13--> 00:25:24

He was very stressed. He was very kind of like, it seemed like he was mentally preoccupied. He felt a little distant, because he was just so stressed by this.

00:25:25--> 00:26:03

And she says, I was sick, and I didn't want to be a further burden on him. Because I had gotten sick to the point where I was like, on bed rest. I was running a fever, you know, all different types of things. And so obviously now for him to have to take care of me. It's just going to be more when he seemed like he was obviously dealing with a lot himself. So I asked him, I said, if it's okay, may I go stay with my mother to mother Looney? My mother can actually kind of nurse me and take care of me. He said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said game fatigue on like, as you wish, like whatever you'd like to do? Most definitely.

00:26:04--> 00:26:05

And

00:26:06--> 00:26:42

so I went ahead and I kind of felt like something's off. Right? But nevertheless, I went in, I see what my mother she says I was sick for about 20 days. 20 days, I went through like a real severe sickness, like a virus or an infection or something and I went through something for 20 days. She says, once I'd started to kind of recover one particular evening, one particular night again, nighttime, right? Because that's when it was most appropriate for a lot of times a woman folk to kind of go and use the restroom. So she says, I went to go use the restroom. And I decided to go with

00:26:43--> 00:26:44

only Mr.

00:26:45--> 00:26:51

Now all Mister, this woman, she is the art of Abubakar.

00:26:52--> 00:27:18

He says father, Abubakar, this is his arm, his collar, his mother's sister. She's a believer, she's a Muslim. She's a Shia, she's a Mahavira. Right? So obviously to shadow the Lakota language. These are great art, almost like a grandmother type of figure. So she says, you know, we I was very close with her. So I said at nighttime evening time, I said you don't have to use the restroom. So she said, All right, I'll come with you.

00:27:19--> 00:27:39

So we're walking. We're going together, you know, just talking. And as we're walking, she kind of hit her foot stubbed her toe on something kind of like hit her foot on a rock. And when she hit her foot on a rock, she kind of tripped and fell forward a little bit. And she said, you know, she got kind of upset and she said, You know that is a mistake.

00:27:40--> 00:27:44

There is a mistake, which basically means may Mr. Hamby cursed.

00:27:45--> 00:27:57

And Miss thought she's known as Mr. Mr. hyzer. Son. That was actually his luck. It was a title that was given to him. But his name was actually out but he was called Mr. And she was called Mr. So she curses her own son.

00:27:59--> 00:28:00

Like kinda like, you know, curse him.

00:28:02--> 00:28:09

And she says that I got very upset with her. I said Big Sur la I'm really liking my quality.

00:28:11--> 00:28:31

Like, aren't you My elder? I respect you. For what you just said. That's very bad. How could you say that? The Ragini Mahajan, I know he's your son. And a mother can say whatever she wants to her son. But still. He's a Mahajan. He's a companion of the Prophet salon him he made the law which is a huge sacrifice what

00:28:33--> 00:28:34

00:28:35--> 00:28:42

does have a mother have a special status amongst the Sahaba you shouldn't talk like that because he says almost like saying like damn him.

00:28:44--> 00:29:00

You know? And she says you shouldn't say that. That's not nice. That's not good. And she looks back at our Isha. So she looks back at me and she says I will not be lucky. I'll have you ever been Tabby? Bakker? She's Ayesha Benza. You don't know.

00:29:01--> 00:29:03

This is like you don't know.

00:29:04--> 00:29:11

She says know what most of it. What are you talking about? I don't know know what? What are you talking about? for UC Berkeley Villa de Ganymede.

00:29:13--> 00:29:26

This is a hiab Chateau de La Cucina Anna in the lengthiest narration of Bahati. The narration I have in front of me from the Sierra women is Hawk is five pages long.

00:29:27--> 00:29:50

five pages of small Arabic text long. If you translate this level of Arabic into English, it would probably come out to be about a minimum of eight pages, maybe 10 pages in such a long narrative, where she talks about the entirety of this incident from start to finish. Not even once that she actually even verbalize,

00:29:51--> 00:29:54

you know the act that they accused her of

00:29:56--> 00:29:58

the modesty the decency of our mother

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

Not once the she mentioned that the act that they were accusing her of,

00:30:06--> 00:30:08

not even once. She says Oh, and if

00:30:09--> 00:30:38

makalu what they said what the people of slander said. That's it. So she says that I was so devastated by what she told me. I didn't even want to go use it. Like I forgot about using the restaurant why we had left the house. I said, Take me home now. You have to go use the restroom. I said, No, take me home now. And I went home and I started to cry and cry and cry and cry. And she said that I was so devastating, I cried so much. And it was so painful inside.

00:30:39--> 00:30:42

That I felt I would die from the pain and the anguish

00:30:43--> 00:30:52

and the hurt that I felt like how hurt and you know, betrayed I felt that people would talk like this. And

00:30:54--> 00:30:59

she said, I said to my mother that you knew about this and you didn't tell me anything. And she says What am I supposed to tell you?

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

Right? She and she tried to control me. I just says you know, she said people sometimes whether it be out of jealousy or out of hatred or out of spite, people say bad things about people. Well, what am I suppose what do you want me to do? So she says anyways, discontinued in the meantime, the profits allottee some once the gossip got way out of him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam finally said, I have to deal with this head on.

00:31:30--> 00:31:38

And the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he ascended the member. He gathered the people in the masjid. He ascended the member.

00:31:39--> 00:31:48

And he said, Hey, you hedonist Oh, people, my balloon angelin you don't and if he asked me, Why would people insult my family?

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

Why would they do that?

00:31:51--> 00:31:55

Why would you do that? You do anything that caused me pain?

00:31:57--> 00:32:03

hurt my feelings about my loved ones. When you're poor lunala homicidal Huck

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

and you make up things about them. Well, la Hema alum to La La Phaedra.

00:32:10--> 00:32:13

These are the most amazing people I've ever interacted with.

00:32:15--> 00:32:19

This is the messenger of aligning things. These people have my back.

00:32:20--> 00:32:31

I've, I've asked them to do the equivalent of going to the moon and coming back. Look how much I've asked them to sacrifice. They've been with me every single step of the way.

00:32:32--> 00:33:07

And now you come in you attack them? Well, my internal beta nimbu De La Hoya Mary, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi. wa. And then Sorry, excuse me goes on to say we are una de Cali, Rosalyn Lin Subhan Allah, look at the look at the honor and the principles of the prophets. allottee. So while he's standing on the member, obviously, defending his wife, he also says we are to Luna Valley, Cali, Rosalyn, and you insult and you criticize, and you attack the integrity, the honesty, the dignity of a good man.

00:33:09--> 00:33:15

Right? So far, minmatar you attack his honor.

00:33:16--> 00:33:18

And the Prophet says we're lucky Marlin to mean hula halen.

00:33:19--> 00:33:32

I know nothing but good from that man. He believed in Makkah. He endured persecution and torture. He migrated through the desert, looking over his shoulder. Fearing for his life,

00:33:34--> 00:33:38

he fought in butter stood out there on the day of bundled ready to be massacred by 1000

00:33:40--> 00:33:54

is a good man and honorable man, a man who loves the line His Messenger and you just attack him and betray him like that. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says that we're gonna bait them into UT la Omari. And he's never ever come into my home.

00:33:55--> 00:33:58

Unless I have brought him into my home.

00:33:59--> 00:34:18

He's such a respectful and honorable man, that even when he needs to, like he's bringing something to me, he will leave it outside my door. He'll come and stand outside my house for hours waiting for me to get home. You won't even lock my house. Not my door. No, no, he stands in he waits outside for hours if he needs to.

00:34:19--> 00:34:22

Baby never would step into my home.

00:34:23--> 00:34:35

And you attacked his honor like this. What's wrong with you people is very upset. And I shut up. You're lucky Jelena explains that. The main perpetrator behind all of this was Abdullah bin obey Ubuntu.

00:34:36--> 00:34:38

He was the instigator. He was the initiator.

00:34:39--> 00:34:43

And she says there were a few good people

00:34:44--> 00:34:51

who got caught up in the mix. And this is a very profound lesson about how you know humanity.

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

That needs to be kind of like you know, focused on here needs to be kind of understood and taken into consideration that

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

And that particular lesson that I would like to share here is that yes, the rumor was instigated, was started by a wretched wretched individual with nothing but darkness inside of his heart. Like Abdullah bin obon, Zulu, okay. ally in the Koran said, We're lucky enough to clean Allah Cathy bone. Allah called him a liar. God called him a hypocrite. Allah called him a captain in the Quran. Allah did. Okay, so we know he's a bad person, because Allah said so. But

00:35:28--> 00:35:45

the lesson here is, there were good people, true Muslims, true believers who got caught up in the mix. They did not instigate or create the rumor. But when you are not alert, when you're not cautious

00:35:46--> 00:35:57

when you're not, aren't when you don't have your guard up. Then sometimes the situation the circumstances, the culture shake on can get the best of you

00:35:58--> 00:36:12

never ever sleep on your own human weaknesses. We're all prone to error. All of us are. All of us are some juicy gossip. tastes just as good to us as it does anyone else.

00:36:13--> 00:36:19

It's got a moment of sweetness, that moment that that's that short, little instant gratification.

00:36:20--> 00:36:43

That's why you have to be so vigilant. That's why you always have to catch yourself. So there were some good Muslims who did not start the rumor. They wouldn't I wouldn't even necessarily say the spread the rumor, but they kind of talked a little bit about it. They got caught up in it a little bit. The conversations, and there's a few of them Miss thought. The cousin of aboubaker is a buttery Sahabi is a movement.

00:36:45--> 00:36:53

But he got caught up in the rumors a little bit. Number two words have not been to judge. Is this the sister in law of the prophets a lot.

00:36:54--> 00:36:57

Dana bint jahsh, her sister,

00:36:58--> 00:37:05

who is also a cousin of the Prophet system, who is a poor a Shia Mahavira, Meena Sahaba, no doubt,

00:37:06--> 00:37:13

but she got caught up in the rumors. And thirdly, is Hassan bin sabot.

00:37:15--> 00:37:17

The Hassan bin sabbat, the poet,

00:37:18--> 00:37:36

the poet on demand of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam who defended the honor of the prophets of Salaam on numerous occasions, right through his poetry, but unfortunately, just got caught up in the conversation. So she says some of these folks they were kind of talking, but I showed her the Allahu taala Anka says

00:37:37--> 00:37:48

that Xena, the wife of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, whose own sister had gotten involved, unfortunately, in some of the conversations, she herself, she said she defended my honor.

00:37:50--> 00:38:16

And she and that's why I shadowed the Allahu taala spoke about her very, very highly, said she was a remarkable, remarkable person, honorable, dignified, respectable person. She says that the when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked her, like, you know, what are your thoughts about this entire situation? Xena Bella, the Allahu taala on her. She says that, I know nothing but good from Alisha.

00:38:17--> 00:38:22

I can literally not find a single bad thing to say about Ayesha

00:38:24--> 00:38:44

philam taco de la halen. She says she's amazing, she's honorable, she's trustworthy. She's, you know, knowledgeable and pious and righteous and nice and kind and generous and like just nothing but praise upon grace upon grace. Right. So that was a feedback of our shadow the Allahu taala on how Not only that,

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

but it goes on to mention that

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

that

00:38:52--> 00:38:58

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he called for he asked earlier about the Allahu taala and

00:38:59--> 00:39:39

that What does Allah The Allahu taala and who think about this, he asked Osama radi Allahu taala, who is the son of Zaid? right because they were all like close family members, who some are the Allahu taala and sama bin Zayed or the Allahu taala. He said that, you know, I have Luca, well, I'm not aluminium Allah hiranya rasulillah we're having kids boo, well, batteria Rasul Allah, he said, this is your family or messenger of God, she is your wife. She's amazing. She's just as much as a part of our lives as you are. And this is all lies and this is all false. And this is all wrong. He has the Allahu talanoa and alira the Allahu Allahu also said that, you know, there's nothing wrong

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

that I can tell you. But he said, for your own satisfaction or messenger of Allah, you're asking me But of course, I mean, I don't personally interact with Isha. Why don't you ask someone who personally interacts with Russia, and that will give you full confidence. So that was buddy da, da da da da da da da da was a slave woman.

00:40:00--> 00:40:34

webmin fried by art and shadow, the Allahu Allah, Allah. And she used to, you know, come and help each other the Allahu taala. And her around the house. She was like her maids used to come and help her out and things like that. And also to spend time with her. She enjoyed the company of Chateau de la. So they called her. And they asked her what do you know? And she says, my honor, we love her. She says on messenger of God will like him and him, we love him. And I can only tell you good things about her. And she says, well, not going to April, Allah Shaka Shay. And I cannot tell you a single bad thing about Ayesha in LA except for one time.

00:40:36--> 00:40:38

I only have one criticism of Ayesha.

00:40:39--> 00:40:46

She says what he says what's that criticism? She says, and he couldn't do it. No, I Jeannie.

00:40:47--> 00:41:01

I was, you know, prepping. You know, I was I was prepping some dough flour, and basically making some dough in order to be able to bake some bread.

00:41:02--> 00:41:29

So I was, you know, yeah, meeting needing that's what I was thinking of that word. All right, I was kneading dough, you know, in preparation to make some bread. So after I had been I'd gotten done eating the doughnut, and I had to kind of leave it out to kind of air out a little bit. And so I put it out. And I told and I had to run around and take care of some other errands, you know, clean something up or run and go get something. So I told the shuttle, the Allahu taala. And

00:41:30--> 00:41:32

I said, Please keep an eye on it.

00:41:33--> 00:41:40

And she says that while she was sitting there, keeping an eye on it for me. She dozed off and fell asleep.

00:41:41--> 00:42:10

fatality shouting for Taku and one of the goats or the sheep kind of just walking around, you know, in the neighborhood, walked into the house and came and ate all the dough. That's the only bad thing I can tell you about Ayesha. That's the only criticism I have is if we're being honest here full disclosure record, she understood the severity of the situation and tells you the honesty, almost to a beautiful degree, the the honesty, the simplicity

00:42:12--> 00:42:29

of the clean hearts of these companions. So she says he had also the life you're asking for any criticism. This is the only one so the prophets, Allah LaGuardia who was sending them after consulting and talking to people. She says that the prophets of sun finally came to visit me and my parents.

00:42:30--> 00:42:51

And I was sitting at home and I was crying and I was really upset. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam came and sat down and he said, Listen, I shot in the Hoopa Bala in huka kanima Bella Hakeem in holiness. He said that you know what people have been saying

00:42:53--> 00:43:06

and he says for tequila, always remember, we are in the presence of alum always be conscious and aware of alone. When couldn t cataract issue. mata moku NASA to be the law.

00:43:07--> 00:43:08

Even if

00:43:10--> 00:43:18

I don't think you've done anything but even if you have done you haven't done anything, just reconcile, repent to Allah, make good with God.

00:43:20--> 00:43:22

Right and I lost control. It's all I will forgive you for the law.

00:43:24--> 00:43:31

Allah willingly waits anticipates the return of his slaves back to him, after indiscretion.

00:43:32--> 00:43:41

She says for we're lucky in Guatemala and Karla de la liga for Casa de Marie. She says when the professor said that, it's like my eyes, they dried up.

00:43:42--> 00:43:51

I've been crying for days. Like my eyes had been shedding tears non stop. When he said that my tears they stopped when

00:43:53--> 00:43:54

I stopped crying immediately.

00:43:56--> 00:43:58

And I kind of sat there like very stoic

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

and was waiting for my parents to say something but they didn't say anything.

00:44:04--> 00:44:08

And she says that I wanted something.

00:44:10--> 00:44:27

But I knew I thought I'm too little for this. What I wanted was for a lot to reveal something for a lot to say something that I was innocent, that I was slandered that I was wrongly falsely accused.

00:44:28--> 00:44:31

I wanted to say something but I was like, Who am I?

00:44:32--> 00:44:59

Who am I? that God would speak on my behalf? But she said deep down in my heart, that's what I wanted and unites the lack of fee for Alan Yoker OBE where you Salahi that a verse of the Quran would come down and people would read it and people will recite it in their prayers. Well, our kidney, but she says that lack kidney control after a while as Tara Shannon

00:45:00--> 00:45:05

Write that I said, but I'm, I'm, who am I, that will be revealed about me?

00:45:06--> 00:45:36

So, I kind of sat there and when I looked at my parents and they weren't saying anything, I said, I like to talk to Giovanni Rasulullah. He's a legend. Don't you have anything to say? Y'all are sitting here listening to this. Don't you come on something. Right? And she said that they responded, Well, lucky man. They're getting the mother energy. What do you want us to say? It's the husband and the wife, the Messenger of God, the mother of the believers. What are we supposed to say? Yes, it's Abubakar. But he's also like, What am I supposed to say?

00:45:38--> 00:45:40

So she says that.

00:45:41--> 00:45:51

I said, Well, like him or her Allah, Allah. Allah, Allah. Allah, Allah, Allah every bucket fetal kilogram, she says, I don't think any family has dealt with the tragedy that we are dealing with right now.

00:45:52--> 00:46:31

And she says that when they didn't speak, I basically retreated away. And I sat down in a corner, and I started to cry. And I said, Well, lucky law to your liking my mother Carter Abaddon, I will make dua to Allah. But I will not ask for forgiveness about what they accused me of doing because I did not do that. Well, like in the La La Mola, it occurred to be my opinion as well. Luckily, Alamo unimin, hula Berea. She says, even if I went ahead and just confess to you, God knows that I didn't do it.

00:46:32--> 00:47:17

And so she says that well, I in an uncompromised, coluna, not to serve the community. And she says, and if I sit here, and I say, I haven't done it, none of these people will believe me. So I'm going to from a semester, it's my job. She said, I tried to think of the name of jacoba alayhis salam, but his name wouldn't come to my head. I was, but I was angry. I was furious. I was upset. So I couldn't remember the name of Yaqoob Ali Salam. This is this is a woman who had this is an individual with photographic memory, there's the shadow the local and she says I was so beside myself. I couldn't remember the name of yakou body salon. So I said, Well, I can say aku Kamala Abu Yusuf, I will say

00:47:17--> 00:47:24

like usus father said, right, because I'm so upset for subaltern. jameela la husana, Allah matassa

00:47:26--> 00:47:39

for Southern German patients is the right thing for Southern German patients is the beautiful course of action here. And the lost power to Allah is the one whose assistance is sought in the face of what these people are doing.

00:47:40--> 00:47:52

In response to what these people are doing. So she says that the prophets a lot he said he did not even leave the home yet. He was basically he spoke double Buckhead, and he was just about getting ready to leave my

00:47:53--> 00:48:20

liking. I kind of get that revelation came upon the prophets a lot. He sent him for su geobee. Toby, he will will they actually said that to see the profits, a lot of them lay down and put his shawl over his face because of the weight of Revelation. And she says that, you know, my father put a pillow under his head. And I was sitting in the corner and I saw all of this for like the Masters here to my belly to she says I didn't even flinch.

00:48:22--> 00:48:33

mufflers on my belly to other RF to anybody. I didn't even flinch. Now think about this. If somebody was potentially hiding something covering up and revelation comes down, then all of a sudden you'd be like

00:48:35--> 00:48:42

what what what, what's what's what's going on? Why? Right? Little bit of panic. She says I didn't even flinch.

00:48:43--> 00:48:49

I didn't even start like getting panicking, breathing hard or nothing. I just sat there very calmly, I said, Okay, here we go.

00:48:51--> 00:48:55

Because I knew I am buddy. I haven't done anything wrong.

00:48:56--> 00:49:00

And she's won the law. He was lied to me. And God would never do me wrong.

00:49:01--> 00:49:32

And she says for America for laziness, or I shall be at the mercy Dr. Nasir is allowed to let us know Jana and fusuma. She says that the way he wasn't done with the profits a lot of them but I looked at my parents and looked like they would die before the ye would end. Like their souls were coming out of their bodies because they were just so terrified that ye is coming Oh my god, what is going to happen? For fun money it Amina lucky Takuma polonez they trusted me they believed in me but at the same time they were terrified what's gonna happen

00:49:33--> 00:49:52

so she says when the why he left the profits a lot he said I'm for jealous and he sat up. We're in the hula hydrometallurgy missile German film and shatin it was very cold. But there were these like, you know droplets of sweat beads of sweat on his forehead that look like pearls glistening in the light.

00:49:53--> 00:49:59

And she says that the prophets for Allah insha Allah Allah can wedgie wipe the sweat away from his forehead.

00:50:00--> 00:50:43

And the profits a lot of these instead of [???]ty I shall congratulations Isha. But until Allahu Allah Bara Bara attack that God has sent down verses of the Koran declaring your innocence of these accusations. So she said, I said Alhamdulillah I praise the last panel which Allah. And in the other narration, she says at that time, my parents told me go and thank the prophets, a lot of them. And she said, I will thank the one who revealed verses of the Quran announcing my innocence and I went and I prayed to Allah. And I said, 100 on me while to Allah. There's a reason why the prophets a lot he said them, when he was asked, Who do you love the most? And he said, Alisha, there's a reason.

00:50:44--> 00:51:26

Right? And the prophets a lobbyist who went out and he recited the IOD that had been revealed upon the people and those who were involved in the accusation, the slander of eyeshadow, the Allahu Allah, Allah actually received. I know, it's a very sensitive topic in our times in our day and age, about hoodoo punishments. And, you know, the penal, Islamic Sharia code, right. But just for everyone's just academic information, of course, it's not relevant in our situation at all. It's not applicable here. But just for everyone's academic information, that one of the Hadoop, there are only seven Hadoop that are stipulated within, you know, within the shediac code, right. And one of

00:51:26--> 00:51:51

them is the head the punishment of slander, when someone is slandered accused of fornication of adultery, and then there is no evidence that is sufficient evidence that is brought then that individual who has slandered someone else, disparage tried to attack someone's honor. That person is lashed, at times is beaten, hit at times.

00:51:52--> 00:51:59

And so all the individuals that were involved in the accusation against it shut out the Allahu taala were

00:52:00--> 00:52:04

the head, the punishment of other of slander was implemented upon them.

00:52:05--> 00:52:39

And it is at this particular time, that the ayat that were revealed and I'll just share these out with you, very, very briefly, this will only take a couple of minutes. It's from Sula to noon. Surah number 24, i 11 through 26 were revealed at this particular time, declaring the innocence of our mother shall have the Allahu taala Allah, Allah says in the livina job will be the secure spectrum income lattice abou Chateau la kobelco, hydro Lacan, the Colibri Minamata subliminal, if me well as eatable akeeba, whom in whom lohardaga has been

00:52:40--> 00:53:21

actually, these are longer iaat. So what I'm going to do is I will go ahead and stop here in Sharla. And in the next session, then what we'll do is we'll actually go through these ayat so that we can appreciate them and go through a brief translation and explanation of them, so we can understand them and appreciate them. Now that we are aware of the historical background, all rather use the opportunity, the last two minutes here To conclude, by saying and by reminding that there's a few lessons and benefits that we should take from this. There's many, many, there's hundreds and 1000s of lessons that we can take from this, right the books have to see the books of Hades, the books of

00:53:21--> 00:53:41

see it on the books of the scholars are full of it and benefits that we get from, you know, this event and others as well. But I'll just mention a couple of them here in conclusion for us to really think about as we leave here tonight, number one, this of course tells us about the status, the dignity, the honor of our mother, shout out the Allahu taala and,

00:53:42--> 00:54:29

and the respect and the love and the, you know, admiration that we should have for her and for the entirety of the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam number one. Number two, we should understand what a serious crime it is to accuse someone to attack someone's honor to attack someone's dignity. You know, we have a problem in our you know, people try to bring up old brother but there's a punishment for Xena. You know, it's a very serious listen. There's a punishment when there are the prerequisites. It's called gamma and whether there are stipulations there are prerequisites conditioned to establishing them. There is no philosopher right now, there is no

00:54:29--> 00:55:00

Islamic government right now. There's no file D there's no court system, none of that. So these are not applicable at all. But make no mistake as we're going to learn as we go through the IRS. The minimum evidence that is required in order to establish a case of adultery or fornication against someone is that the Quran says and the Prophet for some elaborated that for individuals should have seen the act being committed and know who the two are. And when the Prophet says I was asked to what extent should they have seen just

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

Two people entering a room together, two people walking into a hotel room together. The Prophet sallallahu sallam, as you know as blatant as it is, the prophet somebody Some said they should have witnessed the actual act of physical penetration.

00:55:19--> 00:55:34

That's, that's very severe. And I know that kind of challenges some of our sensitivities, but that should embed within us a profound amount of respect. as scary as these issues are. And these are not accusations to be thrown around lightly.

00:55:36--> 00:55:51

Very serious, and the fukuhara have written, the majority of them have actually said that Windows written this isn't the Hadith when the four witnesses come, they are interrogated, they are interrogated by the kabi. What exactly did you see?

00:55:52--> 00:56:11

And the fuka have even written that if some of them say or three of them say that it was in one corner of the room or the house, and the other one says, No, it was in the other room or the other corner, their testimony will not be accepted, and all of them will be lashed and punished for slander.

00:56:12--> 00:56:15

Very serious, you don't take this lightly.

00:56:16--> 00:56:24

So that's the second thing we have to be very careful about how lightly how easily we talk about people and we slender people.

00:56:26--> 00:56:29

We have to be very, very cautious and very careful about this. Hold your tongue.

00:56:31--> 00:56:50

Listen, nobody ever got in trouble for not saying something about someone nobody ever got in trouble for not saying something about someone. It is what we say about others that will ultimately get us in trouble. You're better off always just not saying anything at all. Well long to Allah Allah, Allah Azza wa la de la.

00:56:52--> 00:56:59

I don't know. Allah knows best. Allah knows best Allah knows best. May Allah forgive me, May Allah forgive you May Allah forgive all of us.

00:57:00--> 00:57:06

There's nothing better, nothing safer. That should be our response whenever people want to talk.

00:57:08--> 00:57:10

And thirdly, and finally,

00:57:11--> 00:57:24

just a note, and particularly for those who maybe have found themselves in a position in a situation where maybe they've been wrongly accused. They've been slandered. their dignity, their honor has been attacked has been violated.

00:57:26--> 00:57:29

Then they should know that just says a law.

00:57:30--> 00:57:42

She's me. That just says a lot intervened on behalf of our mother Ayesha, and defended her honor, Allah subhanaw taala will always ultimately defend the honor

00:57:43--> 00:58:19

of those who have been accused not only just in the life of the Hereafter, but in the life of this world. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that when a person attacks the honor and the dignity of another person, before that person dies, there, they will face humiliation in this world, even if it be within the safety in the sanctity and the comfort of their own homes. Because you figure if you never go outside, if you never interact with anyone, then how could you be accused of anything? But the profits? A lot of them says no, no, no, you attack someone's honor and dignity and Allah subhanaw taala will reign humiliation down upon you even inside of the comfort and the

00:58:19--> 00:58:25

security of your own home. You won't even have to leave your bed and you'll be humiliated before noon comes in.

00:58:27--> 00:59:03

So just know that Allah subhanaw taala is always there to defend the Muslim those who have been wronged and if somebody has attacked, Your Honor, then know that Allah subhanaw taala is on your slide. Like our mother eyeshadow the Allahu taala on our turn to align to our turn to align supplication Allah subhanaw taala will take care of you. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us all the ability to practice everything we've said and heard. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to live the lessons from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and next week we'll go through the ayat of surah two news 11 through 26 and inshallah will benefit from the Quranic narrative and what

00:59:03--> 00:59:08

Allah subhanaw taala his book teaches us about this lesson, which is malarkey salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah
