shala continuing with our study of Shama and mohammedia, the prophetic personality, chapter number two that Timothy here brings now Bible my geography hartham in the booty, that the chapter about the seal of prophethood Babu my geography Casa minha, the Seal of prophethood
Now, one of the things is that this is referring to a physical description of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam, the Seal of profitability, the hearts of noble word, the Seal of prophethood was a physical feature of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now, based off of that, it should be addressed within the previous chapter, which was helpful Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the physical description of the messengers a lot he sent him. So this does belong with the previous chapter. However, the because of the fact that two things number one is, even though the physical description of the prophets allottee some is of course, unique by virtue of the fact that every
person is unique. Secondly, of course, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did have some very striking and very interesting features that contributed to who he was, and his interaction with people and his personality.
At the same time, though, what we talked about was the fact that his hair was like this, or his height was as such, or his physical structure was like this. And so it was a description of something that is a part of any person's physical structure at the same time. The hot term, the Seal of prophethood is something that's a little bit more unique to the prophets, a luxury, obviously, it's something that's exclusive to him. So by virtue of the fact that this is something exclusive to the prophets, a lot of a sudden, secondly, the fact that the prophets a lot isms, hair was of a particular length, or his eyes were of a particular color, so on and so forth. That in and of itself
was not necessarily a sign of his prophethood. Right, the fact that his hair was like this, or his eyelashes were long or whatever, that's not necessarily a sign of the fact that he is a prophet, this physical feature of the prophets, a lot of the setup, that seal of Prophet had that he had on his physical body, that is a sign of his prophethood. Right, this is something that is an agreement of the scholars, there are a collection of narrations which allude to the fact that this was actually a sign of his prophethood.
So based off of these two things, number one, it is exclusive to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and number two, it is actually a sign and an evidence of his prophethood because of that fact, Imam Timothy Rahim Allahu Allah brings a separate chapter just to discuss this issue. So yes, it is another physical feature of the messenger sallallahu sallam, but it is a special, unique, exclusive physical feature of the Prophet for him and even miraculous as we will talk about
before we actually get started, or why don't we go ahead and go through the narration. So we at least have a physical description of the feature, and then inshallah we'll talk about some of the other details pertaining to it. So the very first had the youth, as mentioned by him, I'm Timothy here,
but I had nothing Hadassah abou Raja in potato chip No sir Eden. Bala Hadassah hace mucho is married. And in jadwin Abdur Rahman Kala Samia to Sai Baba yazeed yeppoon the habits behala t il un Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of a college Yasuda la in the Illuminati what you're on for masaharu see whether Ali bill Baraka Chihuahua for Sheriff two men will do he will come to help further
Hurry for number two lol hatami baina catchy fee for either one myth Lu z real Hajj Allah.
I'll go ahead and translate first and I'll explain some of the concepts here. Aside
from the Allahu taala and who says, My aunt took me to the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she said, O Messenger of God, my nephew is suffering from some physical pain. My nephew either has some pain or an injury. So he placed his hand on my head. And he may do for me for well being the profits a lot he some den performed will do. And I drank from the water that was left over after his will do.
I then went and stood behind him. And I looked at the seal of prophethood between his shoulders, on his back between the shoulder blades, and I saw that it was like a knot on the edge of a bed. It was like a knot, or a knob that would be on the edge of a bed.
Now to go ahead and explain exactly what the narration saying aside, even yazeed radi Allahu taala on who was a younger Sahabi as you can obviously infer from the narration itself, he was a younger Sahabi
he says that my aunt took me to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now even hedger Rahim, Allahu taala. Also I wanted to mention about Serbian yazeed narrations tell us that he was born in the second year of his law. He was born in the second year of his law, which places his age at the passing of the prophets Allah at some at eight. So this was probably towards the end of the life of the prophets a lot. So he's a child. Right? So he's narrating this narration, even though he is probably maybe 678 years old, which is not unheard of. Some other Sahaba also narrated a few narrations, even in their childhood they were able to remember.
The second thing is, is that the reason why it's important to note that he's a child. First of all, his honor is bringing him Secondly, the way the prophets a lot of them interact with him is also very noteworthy. So now his aunt is the one who brings him Who is this aren't even Haji Rahim Allahu Allah. He actually in his research, he says that I did a lot of research, but I was lucky for Allah smicha
infection body even hydro says that I did a lot of research but I was not able to find the name of the ons. So which aren't Assad if this must have been I'm not able to confirm that. But nevertheless, it was one of his ons. Cala t means it was the sister of his mother. It was a maternal aunt. And so she brings him to the profits a lot. He said, he says she brought me to the messenger salon. And she said that my nephew has some pain.
Now typically, now this wodeyar What is this? What jobs so some narrators when looking at this particular narration what jobs means pain? He has some type of pain. Looking at the narration the fact that the prophets a lot in some places hand on the child's head. Some commentators rushed to the conclusion that he must have had some pain in his head. And that's what the profits a lot. That's the reason why he placed his hand on his head. However there are other narrations which very clearly, state the fact Ghana is sticky digital who can is shaquiesha who that he had pain in his leg. There are multiple other narrations when you actually go and search for the other narrations.
You find the fact that he had pain in his leg he had injured his leg. And so the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. What he does for the remedy of his pain is that he makes to offer him he makes to offer him
all right, and what do I did the profits a lot he said a make. He doesn't necessarily say here, but in some other narrations. He mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made to our for my health. That's the most he says. But here he says he made to offer me for Baraka for blessing May God bless you may he preserve you may protect you. May He grant you a long life May He grant you and health right that type of a door are right here. There's a lesson in and of itself. A lot of times people are very fixated on the idea or the fact that there has to be some type of a structured due out with exact wording for each and every single element. So people will come and they will say
what's the do odd that I should make if my leg hurts?
And the answer is Ola make the pain in my leg go away.
Right? What's the DR to make if my back is giving me trouble? Or a lot take the trouble away from my back. I don't know. Right?
My head hurts, oh, Allah relieves the pain in my head, that's the door I have to make for a headache. Right. So there's not some type of like specific verbal, people are always looking for some type of specific verbiage for every single thing that they need to make to offer. And that's not the profits a lot if there would have been a drive the processor, if the processor would have made the DA, specifically, that would have become the door offer it but that's not what he did. He just said, Oh, my Allah subhanaw taala give you back, I may give you out.
Because the profit margin, if something comes out of his mouth, it becomes shediac it becomes Islam. And so the prophets, a lot of them did not want to set this precedent, create these expectations, that there will be some type of specific verbiage and specific da for each and every single thing. He didn't want to create that idea. And the Sahaba understanding that even if the profits a lot, he didn't make more of a specific the DA, they wouldn't relate it. But they would just say what the IE many times you'll see in their agents with the alley behind. I told the profits a lot of them I'm dealing with such and such. With Dolly behind he made good dog for me. He made a good draw for me,
like he said, Oh, May Allah give you alleviate your debt? Or May Allah subhanaw taala help you with your problem, or May Allah help you in your situation. But even the Sahaba wouldn't relate the exact word verbiage of the DA because they had learned from the prophets or something that that's not important.
And then on top of that, you find this idea that's very prevalent, that people will try to infer things, they'll find an ayah of the Quran that talks about head, right, the word head is mentioned in a verse of the Quran. And then they'll read that verse as a remedy for a headache or something like that. There's weird notions and ideas that are out there. None of it has any validity. The drive for a headache is all a lie. I have a headache, please help me.
Right. And that's it. So that's why he says he made to offer me for Buttercup, for health for good for good things. All right. Like many times in other narrations, it says with the ollie behavior, he made the offer for me in a good manner, like a good duel for me. All right. So now what the prophets allowed him does is to remedy the pain in his life as he makes to offer him.
But the profits a lot easier than placing his hand on his head. Now we understand wasn't some form of remedy.
Right, not some cure by the touch not to say that the prophets a lot. He said, he did not ever do that there are some miraculous incidents from the life of the prophets, a lot of them, like I don't even know he talked about the Allahu taala and who suffered an injury on his feet on his legs, and the process of applied his saliva to it, and it remedied him. Right in the Battle of bud. A Sahabi says that his eye was injured very badly to the point where they thought that he had lost his eye. And the profits a lot of a sudden applied his saliva and, you know, placed his hand on his ima do offer him. And as I became remedied, Fridays I was fixed. So much so that later on in his life, when
he would tell this story, his grandson is asking him and he's telling his grandson the story. And then his grandson asked him which I was in he goes, I can't remember.
Because there was not the slightest bit of defect or fault in di, right. So there were instances like that. But nevertheless, here, that's not what the profitsystem is doing. And the reason why he places his hand on his head is a form of affection. Right, showing love showing affection,
to show love to show affection to show compassion. That's what the prophets a lot of humans doing here. Right. So a bunch of lessons that we learned from this, obviously, we see that, you know, just overall when interacting and dealing with children, that one should be loving and compassionate and affectionate with children. Right, and show that type of love and affection to them. Number two, you also see here that just generally speaking, we picked this up and of course, there's tons of you know, whether it be called bedside manner, or it's called etiquette, or even there's even research about it, somebody sent me an article recently as well, that it talks about how just you know,
physically even showing some compassion or some affection towards a person, right? Whether it be just placing your hand on their hand, or just sitting close to them, when somebody is suffering through some illness or ailment that can actually help the recovery of the person and it actually helps to calm and ease the person right through their pain and their suffering. And we learned that from the son of the prophets, a lot of these and where he places his end on the child's head saying like Don't worry, son, it'll be okay. Right. So you see the Prophet system consoling him.
The next thing that is mentioned in the narration is what the what the I then the prophets a lot of them made will do. So what does that make you do have to
to do with the situation, so it's very likely that this was just kind of an occurrence. Right that it was just an issue of timing, that the profits a lot he said him was maybe about to go out for the prayer that the ants brought the child to the home of the prophets, a lot of them and it was time for the prayers of the prophets also made will do because it was time for prayer. So he just happened to so you may be sought permission from them, that if you'll allow me I need to make will do so that we can go to the masjid. They said absolutely. So then the prophets allottee someone's making will do now somebody could also ask the question, well, that's kind of like awkward sitting
there making will do while people are watching you. Well, that's actually the role of the messengers a lot.
It's a it's a teaching opportunity. It's a learning moment for these folks to be able to watch the prophets a lot of them do will do. And that's why there are more than 30 authentic narrator there are more than 30 Sahaba who authentically narrate the procedure of Voodoo of the prophets Allah Allah that means there were there were dozens of people who observed and watch the prophets A lot of you making will do so Luca Mara a Tony will suddenly that's how we learned how to make will do is from the messengers allottee Center. All right, that's why the procedure of the will do the sequence of the will do is mutawatir
right it's it's relayed by such a large number of people
and in so many different narration that it's like a conclusive absolute fact of the religion All right, it's multifaceted. And so the prophets a lot of these are made will do now he says for Sheriff to mean what do he
alright this is gonna get into some linguistics but if you can pay attention that the word normally is called will do the act is called would be bombing Wow, with a bomber on the wall with the sound on the world.
If you look at the word here closely it says what to do with a photographer involved with a photo on the wall the sound on the world what do we do is the act What do with the sound on the wall that is the water the bucket from from where we'll do is made so the app is called to do and the actual water from where you are taking the water to make will do is called What do the water source itself Alright, because obviously they didn't have like, you know running water or plumbing and nor was the profits a lot decent making will do at a stream. But so what he would have is he would have a bucket of water in his home from where he would make will do.
And so a couple of things now is first and foremost, let me go ahead and explain one thing to you, the prophets a lot he was very particular that one will do is made that and you are making will do from let's say a buckets that the profit somebody some would take the water from there. So first of all, if there was a larger bucket, the profit system would put some water into a bowl or a smaller bucket. He wouldn't pollute all the water, not polluting the literal census of messengers, a lot of them there's no pollution here. But meaning he would not use it straight from the larger source out of out of respect that of etiquette. It's the messengers a lot. He said nobody would complain if he
Nobody would complain if he did. Right. But the promises have taught us etiquette. Like one time they used to have these have these water sacks so made out of leather made out of skin, they would have SATs in which they would store water and it would keep the water cool. And so that the profits a lot of them saw a man drink straight from the water sack, open it up and put his mouth on this act engine straight from there. It's kind of like drinking from the carton or drinking straight from the jug. And the profits a lot. He saw the man doing it in the process and reprimanded demand. He said Don't do that.
Don't do that. Nobody wants to drink your backwash. Right, don't do that. And so the professor was very big on this type of etiquette that you don't make other people uncomfortable.
Right. And so the prophets a lot of Salaam himself was very conscientious in this regard. And so there was a largest source of water, he would pour it into a smaller dish and from there he would make will do
even from that smaller addition which you would make will do is to not waste the water. The profit doesn't will not make will do on top of that dish. But he would place it a little bit away or place it off to the side and he would scoop water from there and then he would make will do so that after he had washed his face when the water would fall, it would not fall back in that dish.
Again, even though the profit and I'll be talking a little bit about this, the profits a lot of the sun was such a source of butter and blessing exclusively him that the Sahaba actually would collect the droplets of his will do as a source of blessing and even a remedy.
But still the processor was conscious of the fact that I don't want the water dripping the after I'm having used it rubbed it on my body to drip back into the bowl.
So that somebody else can use it comfortably, I don't want to put somebody else in that position. Right. And so even when washing his feet, it's not like he would dunk his feet into the bowl of water, he would scoop some water up and put it on his feet and then rub. And I'm not gonna get into too much detail here. But the amount of water in which the profits a lot isn't make food make will do what's the size of a cup,
that the profits allow him would make will do from basically water, the amount of a cup with a cup full of water the process and would make will do.
Right. And it's very practical, it's very doable for a couple of reasons that number one, it is not a requirement or a condition that water has to flow.
But you can take water and then rub it and spread it all over the body part. So when you're washing your arm, and you take water and you put it there, then you can rub the The objective is that the water gets everywhere. But it's not necessarily necessary that as a flow off, as very problematic. And sometimes this becomes kind of like almost like a Westwater, a wound for people where people become obsessive about it. And that's not a requirement of Lou at all, at all.
And so the profits, a lot of them, that's how we will make will do. So I just wanted to clarify that. So when it's saying that for Sheriff to Meanwhile, do e ID from the water that was left over after he made we'll do it's talking about that bowl from where he was making will do. So it's not necessarily saying that I drank the collection of water that had fallen from his face and his limbs after me Will do. No, he's saying that that bowl that he was scooping the water out of to make will do.
I drank from the water that was then remaining after he was done making you do.
Right and again, what the profits a lot of a sudden would do. And this is very important to note from the etiquette of will do before the profits, a lot of them would put his hands into the water source, he would actually take the bowl, and he would pour a little bit of water into his hands and wash his hands before putting his hands into the water. So you would actually wash his hands, pour some water into his hands and wash his hands. And then he would put his hand. And so the profits a lot of the salmon himself would sometimes then even drink the water that was leftover in that bowl because he had washed his hands and they were his own hands. And so then he would drink the water
himself sometimes so not wastewater, because there's just a little bit of water leftover and so he would sometimes drink it himself. So he says I drank the water that was leftover after his will do. Now there's a couple of there's a couple of points that need to be discussed here. So based off of that fact, the prophets a lot he said them as evidenced by the fact that he himself would drink the water that was left over as to not waste the water. It could be that the child is saying I drink the water because I was thirsty. And that was a perfectly good clean source of water. And so I drank that water.
So it might not necessarily be tied to some type of, you know, remedy are seeking of blessing, but I was just thirsty. And that was water. So I drink it.
Number two, is the fact that there could have also been very well and many of the scholars have affirmed the fact that there is an element of buttermilk here seeking blessing from drinking that water that was used by the prophets a lot is in the water that had made contact with the hand of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And that also is something that we don't have any qualms or disagreements about because there are narrations, authentic narrations, such as the narration of the Treaty of who they be, that demonstrates the fact that even the poorest saw that when the profits a lot of them would make will do in the water was dripping from Muslims, they would go and they would catch the droplets. And they would spread it on their face.
They would rub their water on their face. They saw it as a source of blessing, that he is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So even if it was maybe the aunt told the child, or the prophets a lot, who instructed the child, or the child himself knew intuitively by observing everyone else around the promises of them to drink that water.
And that could have been done for the sake of blessing him, there's absolutely nothing wrong with it, it'd be a very good thing to do. The third point now, however, is that this idea of a Tibet rope.
Is this kind of a concept now that we can expand from here? Is it a concept that can be applied to other people?
There are some opinions there's a minority opinion that this is generally kind of an idea that can be expanded to others. The majority of scholars are of the opinion
that this is not an idea that expands or extends to other individuals.
And those are also my conclusions or convictions as well. Well. LaHood Allah Allah Allah knows best. I'm really not anyone to have an opinion on the issue. But nevertheless, those are at least my thoughts.
Along with the majority of scholars that this is not a concept that expands or extends to others, and that's rooted within evidence, not any type of paranoia or anything, but it's rooted within evidence, because there's a very interesting idea that the Sahaba obviously would seek this source, this type of blessing from the profits a lot of where they would go and catch the droplets of will do falling from him and drink the water leftover from the will do and so on, so forth. Right, masala Marathi Allahu taala. And how we sometimes use some hairs of the prophets, a lot of them that she had remaining as even like a source of remedy, like putting it into water, and then using that water
and putting it on, like some rash or an ailment or something like that. So that's how bad is understanding, and they practiced it and it's authentically narrated, that they would seek this type of blessing or remedy from the profits of loving someone himself. But what's very fascinating is that you do not find if the idea could be expanded to others. And the idea would be, and the minority that does hold that opinion, states, the fact that we'll see Similarly, a two Butterbeer thought is solid, that you seek blessing from righteous people, that basically you identify within them certain qualities or traits or features of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, their
righteousness, their piety, their God, consciousness, their duck law, and based off of that, then you seek that type of blessing from them. Well, what we would have definitely seen then, is that within the community of Sahaba, we obviously know for a fact that there were some Sahaba, who did hold some, a very high level of piety,
as evidenced by the fact that the prophets a lot of them recognize that within them, the prophets a lot he sort of recognized the piety and the righteousness of Abu Bakar of oma of Earth monophyly
the prophets allottee Some said Hudson Hussain will be the leaders of the young people in paradise. Fatima will be the leaders leader of women in paradise. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said about obey there is the most honest man of my oma the prophets a lot a Salaam said that obey you blue crab, is the most is the most gifted reciter of my oma. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that it may offer even a basta May Allah bless him with knowledge and understanding of the
right so you have all these individuals about whom the messengers a lot of SMS said that they are remarkable people. So then you would have found that other Sahaba would similarly go to them to see blessing from them.
Or that the following generation of Tabby or own
who interacted with the Sahaba would do would practice the same thing that you would find the Atacama drinking the leftover will do water of even Mr. ODE.
And AKM are doing so with him and Ibis. And Sarah Edelman will say you're doing the same with I've done I've been drama, and so on and so forth. But you find don't find them doing that there's no evidence, there's no quotations, there's no precedent of them doing so. So it kind of allows you to extrapolate the fact that the Sahaba themselves, the Debbie own, those early generations understood the fact that this was min Hassan is a Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam This is exclusive to the messengers alavesa. So we're not denying something from the religion. In fact, we're confirming a virtue of the messenger ceylonese
that this is exclusive to the profits.
Alright, so that's a little bit of an issue that comes from here. Now he says, I went and I stood behind him.
So again, why did he go and he sent me it maybe it was just coincidentally he was just standing there. Or it could have also been the fact that he knew that there was something special on the back of the profits a lot of the time and being a child being curious. He wanted to see it for himself. So he says that I looked at the seal of prophethood on the back of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And he says that it was like the knot or the
it was like the knob that is on a bedpost. So what they would do is a lot of times that even when they would have like a very simple bed, they would have these knots or these small circles. These almost look like the size of an egg. They would have these little knobs at the edge of four ends of the bed. And the purpose of that was to be able to tie right the mosquito net. They would use it to tie the mosquito net onto it. Right so it's kind of like the canopy of the bed. Alright, so he says that that's what it reminded me of the next generation.
A mom sent me the says Carla had this and I said I don't know
Bala head does Anna uboot new jabeen uncIe marchini Harbin and javeed in Samara, radi Allahu taala Andrew Paul, Rachel hacia ma baina catchy Fei Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam good Dayton Hamra mithila Bay button hemmati
Jabir bin Salman radi Allahu taala, who relates
that I saw the seal between the shoulders of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And it was like a red piece of flesh. It was like a red piece of skin flesh. And he says that it was the size or the shape moreso of the egg of a pigeon, a pigeons egg.
And so one of the things that we see here he says that it was read, and I get what he means by the redness of it. There's another narration, which says that it was this color of the skin of the Prophet salami. So it was the color of the skin of the processor. So it was kind of like this piece of flesh. But it wasn't necessarily like it when it says it was read. It was not it's not that it was inflamed, or infected in any way, but it was more so the color of his skin.
The third narration by the head designer Abu Musab al Abu Musab al Madani Paula Hadassah Yousuf of new Maggi schoon an OBE an awesome evening, Omar even portada and Jeddah t ru Mesa, pilot Samia to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
when I shot a pilot when I was shot, pub Bilal Hartman le de binaca TV min Kirby Hill fr alto
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Elisa dibny more as in your Mamata, it does Allahu Ashura man.
So in this particular narration, Omar bin awesome bin Omar bin Qatada released from his grandmother whose name was a roommate
roommate. She was a Sahabi as she was a woman at the time of the prophets, a lot of them. So he's relating this from his grandmother, who may thought or the Allahu taala anha was an elderly woman, she was an older woman. So again, what you realize about this here is again, you see the interaction of the prophets a lot. So with the community, that the prophets a lot of a sudden wasn't some recluse, or somebody who was completely cut off from the people and separated from the people but the profits a lot. He was very welcome very, was very welcoming, very open.
Right? He was very welcoming that this woman when she wants in the previous scenario, when she wants to bring their nephew, she can come and visit the profits, a lot of them, this elderly woman wants to come and sit with the profits a lot eaten, and she's able to come and sit with the profits, a lot of them and she's sitting so close, that she says Now I'll translate roommate that says that I heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And when I heard him saying what what he said, I was sitting so close to him, that if I wanted to lean forward and kiss the seal of prophethood, on the back of the profits allows him I would have been able to do so. And he I heard him saying in
regards to South Bend was on the day that he passed away, that he died, that the throne, the outage of man, the throne of a lot the throne of the Most Merciful, it shook for him, it shook because of sod. Now I'll go ahead and explain. So this woman relates I sitting so close as elderly woman is sitting so close to the officer, that she says I could have leaned forward and kissed the seal of profit on on his back. So again, you see the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was very accessible. Again, this is not bringing up some issue about gender interaction and all these different things. But who made that it is documented factual is a very elderly woman. And the rules differ very much for
interacting with very elderly people. I do that, right? with elderly people, the rules are different. And so being a very elderly woman, like a grandmother to everyone in the community, including even the prophets a lot, it's him himself being older in age, but she was very, very elderly. Maybe something in the range of 8090 something years old. So being very elderly, the profits, a lot of them treated her like a mother.
He treated her like a mother. And she wanted to come and sit close to him and talk and now again, imagine an elderly person. Right, you have to kind of look after them.
And elderly person probably wanted to talk a lot to the profits, a lot of the seller and the Profit System is sitting there with her. Very close to her. Probably serves her something asked her if she's okay. She talks
And talks and talks and he sits and he listened, sir, you see the character of the Prophet ceylonese. Right. He was a man of the people.
Now, this little interjection the reason why the narration seems kind of strange even in the translation. what she's saying is I heard the prophets a lot of them say about sobbing. On the day that he died, that the throne of the Most Merciful the throne of a lush shook because of sod.
And then she's interjecting that by the way, when I heard him say this, I was sitting so close that if I wanted to kiss the seal, or profited on his back, I would have been able to, this is what's called the science of Hades as in the Raj.
This is mother Amina Ravi Mina Sahabi right. So this is Interjection. This is an interjection from the narrator. All right, so now to so I now that I've explained the dynamic here and I would tell teaches you something about the character of the prophets a lot a setup. What is the story behind the audition for a man say shaking for sobbing while sobbing? Well, I don't know the Allahu taala. I'll give you a very brief bio of him, sobbing will either of the Allahu taala and who was a leader of the tribe of huzar Raj. In the city of year three, which would become Medina. He accepted Islam at the hands of Mousavi nomade, who was sent by the prophet sallallahu sallam. After about 1213
people in Medina had accepted Islam. They insisted that the prophets have they had come to McCann become Muslim. They insisted that the prophets allottee some sent a preacher in the teacher back with them. We're going to be talking about this in this class.
But nevertheless, Mousavi nomade was a leader that was sent Saad bin Wilde was a leader of his people initially was not sure what to make of this new religion and this preacher, and so came to meet with wasabi mermaid. And when listening to the Quran being recited, he accepted Islam. But sappan was was such a respected man, and was such a man of conviction was a confident man. He was young actually, right when he became with somebody who was in his early 30s. And so in that particular culture, it is actually very noteworthy, even shocking that somebody in their early 30s would command so much respect amongst his people, that when he became Muslim, on that very same day,
his family within the tribe of Roger's family was called, but
they were the family of blue ash and the sons of Abdullah,
that he went, gathered the whole family together, the whole extended family together, but what Abdullah shall, and he said that, speaking to all of you, is forbidden upon me. Like I've taken an oath not to interact with any of you until you accept this law. Because I know it's the truth. And I want what's good for you. And I believe that this is what's good.
And then he shared the message with them, and the whole extended family, but what I've done actually accepted Islam on the spot. They all became Muslim right then and there. And this was the first major family of Medina to become Muslim. And it was because of sobbing.
sobbing was was also the Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
who stood up and voiced his support for him, and his people support for him in the Battle of bud.
He rallied the people of Medina, to march out with the prophets, a lot of them in the Battle of butter.
So time and time again, he is again one of the people who rallied the community to fight by the side of the profits, a lot of the seller, excuse me,
in the Battle of offered, so time and time again, he was somebody who the profits, a lot of you some could count on. And so in the Battle of the trench, the Battle of conduct, he again was there supporting the prophets, a lot of them along with his whole family, his tribe, his people.
And unfortunately, he was hit with an arrow, he was struck with a straight arrow from the other side of the trench from the enemy side. Somebody launched some arrows and one of them came in struck him when narration says in his neck, it struck him in his neck in a place where there was a major artery and he basically would not stop bleeding and he bled out from that injury.
And the profits a lot. He's impersonally was checking on him. He had a tent put for him within the masjid.
And the profits a lot of him was checking on him and he was bleeding so profusely, that the blood was seeping out from under the tents into the masjid
until he eventually passed away due to this injury.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mourn his loss.
The profits a lot of a sudden himself personally, you know, arrange for his burial
And he was very, very distraught at the loss of Serbian wife.
And there's a very interesting, there's a couple of interesting incidents that when his janaza was there and the prophets a lot of them entered the room. The Prophet son was seeing kind of walking on hit the balls of his feet, like on his tiptoes
the profits, a lot of people have seen walking on his toes. And when they asked him, the mother of
the Father, how can I answer Lola? Why are you doing this on messenger of Allah, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responded by saying that there are so many angels in the room that there's no place for me to put my feet in some narrations of art and shadow the Allahu taala and and other Sahaba it mentioned that 70,000 angels have come down to attend the generosity
and the number 70,000 a lot of times we'd be used to just mean that in an ordinate amount of angels have come so another narration the prophets a lot a Salaam says ma Baka Allah wa jal de mercado, there is no place on the face of this earth that is not present that is covered by angels present for the Genesis
to carry his soul back to the heavens,
the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa send them when they lifted, the body of sobbing wife, some of them will not be a boon. Some of the hypocrites were there. And they didn't like Sabine was because he used to call them out when they would make the secret plans and discussions and so I've been what I would find out about it. Because he had a course he had the inside track. He was a leader of his people, and he would hear about it, you would call them out and you would oppose them. So they didn't like him. So when they lifted the janaza, some of them said, some of them commented by saying that the janaza of sub dinmore ARV is not very heavy.
The janaza of zarbin was, is not very heavy, they said ma hofa jenessa to mA for Jenna Sato. Look how light His body is. And what that meant was in their culture. What that meant was that was an insult insult towards a person.
That look, he's like a child. He's not even a man. He doesn't feel like you're carrying a man. So it was like an insult that they used to use my account for generosity. And the profits a lot of him retorted, he responded immediately. Normally the processor would ignore these people. But he was so he like he loved sadness so much. And he was so pained by his loss. He responded right away. And he said in the melodica, tata milou.
His janazah seems like because people you're not caring as soon as the angels are carrying the gym as I've been.
And that's when the profits a lot of these haven't commented. And he said it does Allahu Ashura man, the throne of Allah has shaken fourside out of out of honor for Assad. And another narration specifically the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, it does a lot of shoe for him, Bill a lie to Allah Sodom,
that the throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala has shaken
out of celebration that today Allah subhanaw taala will meet his beloved slave sad
Alright, so that was and again, what is the significance? There's, I don't want to get into too much detail here.
But what's the significance? What does it mean for the throne to shake? What does that signify? What is the significance of that? Then what we know about the arch of Allah subhanaw taala it is that is that it is one of the greatest of Atlas creations. It is the great some mentioned that it's a greatest symbol of creation. There's a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam where he says, all of the heavens and the earth when placed before dequeue see the footstool of Allah subhanaw taala
It is like placing a ring inside of an in an open field. You would not even be able to see a ring in an open field. That's what the heavens in the earth look like in front of the footstool of Allah subhanaw taala and then the arch the throne of Allah.
The footstool looks like a ring
inside of a field in place before the throne of the last panel atop the Arusha law.
All right. So it is the greatest of a lust creation
and it is the height of Allah's creation.
And so, it shaking his signature signifying the fact that it is basically said to do so out of honor for someone and respect for them.
All right. So that's what it makes reference to. But the relevant thing here is the reason why mounted media brings us narration
is to talk about the fact that the elderly woman or omega, she makes reference to the seal of prophethood on the back of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
Hadith number four mm Timothy says Allah had

one of the grandsons of the Allahu talana Ibrahim Abu Muhammad Ali, one of the grandsons of Allah the Allahu taala No, this is not a grandson from Fatima. This is a son Muhammad when his name is Mohammed Abu hanifa.
And so this was a son of Allah, the Allahu Allah Allah from another woman that he married after the passing of Fatima, not the Allahu taala on her. But nevertheless, this is a grandson of Anita the Allahu Allahu he says whenever alira the Allahu taala and who can Annie? Whenever I do the Allahu Tanana would describe the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And then he mentioned the Hadith in its entirety, previous similar to the Hadith that we've seen from Allah, the Allahu taala, and who, in the previous chapter, and he would say in that Hadith, that between his shoulders was the seal of prophethood and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the seal of all the prophets, he sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam was the finality of all the prophets.
And so again, there's no really detail here that's provided. But nevertheless, he mentioned the fact that this was a part of the physical description that I laid out the Allahu taala and who used to provide for the promises of summon Of course, I laid out a loved one who was one of the people who's the most intimately familiar with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had these number five

so in this particular narration, Hadith number five
Alba narrates from Abu Zaid whose name was Noah stop, and he was a Medina and Sahaba usin and Sati. He says that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to me, oh, booze aid come close, who Domini come here?
And he said, feel on my back here, check out my back right here.
And so I placed my hand and felt his back. And my fingers. They fell on the seal of prophethood. The narrator I bought, he says, I asked him, What was it like when Mankato What was it like? And he said that they were, there were some hair gathered around it. There was some hair around it. So he provides a an extra description.
Right? And what that extra description that he's providing is that not that the seal of profitted itself was just like a bunch of hair. He's saying that it was there. I felt it with my fingers. But what I found interesting, and maybe he had heard descriptions of it from other Sahaba as well. But he says what I found fascinating was that there was some hair around it as well. All right. Now, a couple of things that I wanted to mention here about Abu Zaid, this particular Sahabi. That's very fascinating.
First and foremost of Hussein, lm Sati radi Allahu taala and who is a younger Sahabi
He's another younger Sahabi.
And so even though he's young, the fact that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam refers to him as Abu Zaid with a cornea. Even though his name was Iman.
It shows that that it shows the character of the profits a lot. He's him again, that the profits a lot of a sudden would extend respect to people you speak to people respectfully, that even though he was younger than the profits allottee some, he still refers to him as Abu Zaid with a respectful title is going
to show respect to him. And so that's how considerate the prophets Luddism was number one. Number two is the fact that the prophets a lot is is telling him check this out.
So again, you see the interaction of the prophets a lot of them with his companions with the Sahaba that he interacted with them in a very friendly manner in a very brotherly fashion. right he tells him here hey check this out here check this out.
Right and he says that I put my hand on his back and I felt it the seal of profit and I and imagine what a special experience that was from that he relates this
He let me check out the seal of prophethood with myself he let me check it out.
Right even though I wasn't like some family members or something, he let me check it out.
So again, you see the way the prophets a lot of human interacted to people. There's another more extended narration in the Muslim era Muhammad, that in this experience, that when the prophets a lot of them said
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then basically put his hand on his head.
And also then the profits, a lot of him kind of stroked his beard like this, which was a way to show kind of love and endearment. All right, in that particular culture, it was a way to show like respect or to show endearment to someone that he placed his hand on his head of course, because he was a lot younger than him. Like as a father figure, he placed his hand on his head. And then the prophets a lot of some kind of stroked his beard said look Mashallah. So, like a way of saying like, Look, you're a man now, right? But it was a it was a way of showing love endearment in that particular culture. Be very conscious of the fact that it was acceptable in that culture. Do not go
around doing that to other people. Touch my beard, I will hurt you. Alright, so But nevertheless, of course the prophets Allah is only showing it as a sign of love. And then the prophets a lot a subset Allahumma Jamil who was a demon jamala who
Allahumma Jamil who was a demon jamala who Allah Allah made him beautiful and then maintain this beauty for him.
the fascinating thing is that amor
amor been a star.
He was Ahmed, Abu Zaid, he was a younger Sahabi he was a younger son.
And he again lived for a very long time. It said that he lived till the age of about 100.
Some narrations mentioned that he passed away at the age of 9696 sitta What's his name?
He lived till he was 96 years old, very old. And some also historical accounts mentioned that he was the last living Sahabi in the city of Medina
because unassuming, know, Malik radi Allahu taala and who had moved to Makkah.
And some of the other Sahaba, who lived also lived in Kufa and Macau some other areas. But he was the last living Sahabi in Medina.
And the people relate about him that even at the age of 96, he had no wrinkles on his face.
He had no wrinkles on his face. He had black hair.
His beard was still black. He just had a little bit of white here. Maybe just a little bit right here. All right. But other than that, mostly is that it was still black hair, dark hair, and his beard was still dark as well. And he had no wrinkles on his face, very youthful looking 96 years old. Not only that, but they also relate about him that are 96 he was still physically very active.
He was so physically very active. He used to walk around, he would do his own household chores. He would maintain all of his own things he would he was very physically active.
That the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam making to offer him had that effect.
And there's a in the explanation of this, some of the scholars, they mentioned something very beautiful, very fascinating.
That the Prophet of Allah ceylonese there's another Hadith where he says number Allahu Imran May God keep youthful.
May God keep youthful it's like a DA
May God keep youthful a person semi I'm Akala T, who hears some of my words, the ahaadeeth for why ha then he memorizes it for a DA hakama semi Aha. And then he relates it as he heard it
that this is exactly why so if you don't know Yana says, Mom and I had mom and I hadn't yet a local hadiza illa Wolfie, what he Nebraska Nebraska. So if you're an arena he says, This is why
daddy Rahim Allahu taala mentions his quote of Savannah norina he says that so if y'all have not seen I used to say that this is why we've noticed that anyone who was a student of Hadith was always very youthful looking.
was always very youthful looking. Because of that. Do I have the prophets a lot?
Hadith number five,
or excuse me, how do you number six?

So I boo boo Ray de
radi Allahu Allah, Allah who relates that salmaan and Farsi. I'm just going to translate this and then I'll explain. Some other Farsi came to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When the prophets Allah arrived in Medina, with a offering with a basket or with an offering of dates.
He placed it in front of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh salmaan What is this? He responded that this is charity for you and your companions. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Take it away, because we cannot take from charity.
So he took it away. The following day, or later on, he came with a similar offering a basket of dates.
And he placed it before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, What is this? Oh, Solomon, he responded that this is a gift for you.
So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to his companions, he said, share this with everyone Uzu share this Help yourselves. Then the den he went to go look at the seal of prophethood on the back of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and when he saw it, he accepted Islam and believed in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He answered my
used to belong to a Jewish man he was a slave and the property of a Jewish man the profits a lot. He's arranged for the purchase the release of cinnamon in exchange for certain terms. And some of those terms were the fact that a certain amounts of trees would be planted, date palms would be planted.
And so salmaan would have to care for them until they basically became fruitful.
So the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he placed the trees with his own hands into the ground, all except for one, which are Amaro the Allahu taala and who had put that particular tree into the ground with his hands. All of the trees gave fruit that very same year.
Except for the one that Armand had placed and the prophets a lot of them said, What's wrong with this tree? Why is it not giving fruit? Answer Amato, the Allahu Allahu Sara messenger of Allah because I put it in the ground. So the prophets a lot he sent him, took it back out of the ground, and then put it back in the ground with his own hands, and he gave fruit immediately.
So now I'd like to go ahead and explain this particular narration. It's part of a lengthy narration, which we're going to again talk about in the CETA class itself. And there's one particular recording on the podcast that is dedicated to just this particular story. Nevertheless, I'll summarize it to some degree, submitted pharmacielo the Allahu taala, who is a very fascinating person, a very fascinating individual. When the prophets a lot of some there's a weaker narration, that when one time when the prophets a lot of him recited the ayah way into one no yesterday, Alana later confirmed
that if they turn their backs on the deen of Allah subhanaw taala, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will bring people other than them, and then they will not be like them, that the Sahaba asked, what does that mean Oh messenger of Allah. And someone was sitting next to the prophets, a lot of them and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam patted him on the back. And he said people like this.
People like this. And then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that even if the religion if guidance would have been found on another planet, Len Allahu Allahu salmaan. salmaan in the people of San Juan are people like semaan would go to another planet if they had to, to find the religion to find guidance. And he was complimenting the resilience,
the perseverance, the persistence of Solomon. And so the story of Samana lengthier story, basically, he tells his own story, that he grew up in Persia, he was the king, excuse me, he was the son of a leader of a town kind of like the son of a nobleman. in Persia. He says, I was an only child, my son, my father was very protective over me. He raised me what we would call like, in a glass box, he wouldn't let me leave the house, he would let me do anything. And so all I would basically do is live in the house, you know, take care of the books for my father for his business. He He ran a business I would do the books for my father. And then I would also because my father was the leader
of the people. So our temple where we would worship a fire. There was our Austrians Medusa, that it was basically in our, it was attached to our home, the temple. And so I used to take care of the fire.
until some travelers who were Christian there, they basically there was a monk who had come and set up a little monastery and was trying to, you know, preach Christianity to our people, but our people really weren't interested in him. So one day, my father, he sent me out on some errands. But he was very nervous. He's like, Look, I have no choice. I need some help. I need you to go. But listen, you go there, and you come straight back. I'll be waiting for you here.
All right. Don't Don't worry me. Don't bother me. Don't trouble me. Don't disappoint me.
And so he says that I was going in on the way I passed by the monastery.
And there were people there. And the reason why there were people there, there were some travelers from a sham. Were many folks were Christian. And they were passing through there. And so they were staying with the monk.
He was he was taking care of them. And so they were staying staying there. And I saw a bunch of people there and they were reading something and worshiping and praying. And I was very fascinated.
And so I went in to kind of watch and I stood at the back and watched him for a little while. And they notice me and they called me in and they were very hospitable. And they gave me food and snacks. And they asked me to come and pray with them. And I started praying with them. And I was very fascinated by this is very intriguing.
And it made a lot of sense. And he said I came to the realization what these people are doing makes so much more sense than
what they believe makes so much more sense of what we believe.
So I became convinced I spent hours there
until I realized it was evening time. And I said, Oh my goodness. Right? My father's probably freaking out.
So I ran home. Lo and behold, my dad was waiting outside and he was just furious. Where were you? You're never leaving the house ever again. Right? so on so forth. And so I sat down with him. And I said, You know, I went to the monastery, visited the mom, get these visitors, they were praying, they were reading Oh, my goodness, it was amazing.
And my father was very upset. He said, Absolutely. Not all that's garbage. You're never leaving the house ever again. And he locked me down.
Right? He locked me up when he left the next day. He said, obviously, I grew up here. I lived in this house, I knew how to get out if I needed to get out.
So what I did was I had one of my friends send a message to those travelers, telling them that when you leave, don't leave without me.
Don't leave without me.
Let me know. And so they sent the word to me that we're leaving tonight. So I packed up my stuff. I snuck out of the house. He was a teenager, I was a man at this point. My father was locking me up for no reason.
And so I left. never looked back ever again. I left.
And I traveled with these people until I went back to where they lived. And I said, I'd like to learn more about the religion. That's all I'm interested in. And they said, We have this priest in our area.
You should go and you should stay with him study with him become his understudy student learn from him. So he said I did.
And I regretted it.
Because this guy was a crook. He was a thief. He used to collect donations from people. And then he would keep them all for himself, and he would stash them.
And I became so frustrating, he was so corrupt. He was just obsessed with money, that I became so frustrated with him. I told somebody that you know, this guy's is basically a crook. He keeps all of your money.
And they came in, and they basically, some narration say that they went as far as that they, they killed him. They hung him.
And so but nobody bothered me because I'm, I wasn't a part of this. I had nothing to do with this. I told him where to stash was buried.
But now I was kind of left in this dilemma. I know I had found something that made sense to me.
But now I had this experience. So someone told me. So he says then that they brought another monk, another priest in his place. And he said that man was remarkable. He was what I was looking for in the teacher, remarkable,
honest, trustworthy, pious, righteous, knowledgeable, everything I was looking for. So I learned from him and I studied with him. And I learned a lot until he was an elderly man, and he was dying. So I asked him, What should I do? And he said, go to such and such priest. You can trust him. He's one of us when the old guard.
And so I went with him. And I studied with him, and spent some time with him when he was about to die. Then he sent me to a third guy. And again, same thing. He said, He's one of the old timers. He's somebody you can trust. So I went and I studied with him and spent some time with him until he was about to die. So he said, What do I do now?
And he's like, there's no money, no more priests to go to. And he gave me some scripture and he said, Look,
who is a man?
Now it's time for that prophet to come.
So he said, I don't know. I don't have in my scripture. What I have. I don't have any information about his early life. But I do have information about his later life.
That I can tell you, I don't know exactly. I don't know a lot of details about where he'll be from but I can tell you where he'll end up. And he said, there's this town and it's a farming town and they grow date dates over there, the plentiful date palms, and he described it and there's some mountains on the outskirts of it. Oh hood, and you know, he described it.
So he said basically go to Arabia and try to find a town that fits this description. So he said I set out and I had a little bit of money saved up and I tried to hitch a ride. But unfortunately, the people that I caught a ride with were terrible people.
So what they did was I was a Persian so I was a foreigner and made me a little exotic. And at the same time they knew that I I wouldn't have any family or a tribe or any backup or support here.
Nobody had my back. I was by myself. A Persian Christian monk.
Right, traveling in the desert by himself.
So basically, I went to sleep at night, I woke up in an
Next morning and I was in chains.
They had tied me up overnight, they start taking all my stuff. And they dragged me with them the rest of the way and dropped me off in a marketplace sold me off to a slave trader as a slave look, we found a really nice exotic slave for you.
And they sold me in the marketplace as a slave.
He said that I was purchased by a man who gifted me to his cousin.
And he said that when he gifted me to his cousin, and his cousin took me to his orchard, his property where he grew dates.
He said, I went and I started looking around the city as he was taking me there to town. And everything matched. I had ended up in that place, Medina.
Now I was like, Yes.
Right. It's all worth it. being sold into slavery.
So much tragedy, but it's all worth it. I ended up here I got here. God brought me here.
And he says, so I was there for a few years. Until one day I was up in the tree. And I was basically he had me kind of maintaining the trees.
And he says that I, I heard the the guy who owned me, the the Jewish man. He was sitting down on in the garden, and one of his cousins or family members came to meet him. And he said that, you know, we got problems. So what have you heard about this new religion? All these these Olson has allergies, Arabs, they've been accepted to new religion? He said, yeah. He said, Well, they're a prophet. He's arrived. He's outside of Medina, and in the city called Cuba, the town called Cuba. And he's arrived here. He's here now.
So it's not good for us, and our political status here.
And he said, When I heard that, I almost fell out of the tree. I climbed down quickly. And I went up to the man and said, Well, what would you say? What do you say? And he said, my owner slapped me across the face, slave, go do your work. None of your business doesn't concern you.
So he said, I gathered some dates together. I'm a slave. I didn't own anything. I gathered, whatever rations were given to me, I saved him aside, gathered, some dates together, kind of put together a little bit of like a tray or a basket, like a little gift basket. And I went to Cuba. And he said that by last teacher in the scripture had shown me that there will be three signs,
there will be three things three tests are three ways that you can confirm that he's a prophet, number one, he himself does not consume charity, it does not eat charity.
But if you give him charity, if you give them charity, he will pass it on to his people who are worthy of it. But even his family, they don't take any charity.
Number two, if you give him a gift, he will take someone who you share with others, that's as soon as
and number three, he has a seal of profit on his back.
So he said, I took the dates. And that's where you see in this narration, I presented it before him, I introduce myself, my name is Solomon, such and such. And so then I said, I brought something and he said, so what is this? And he said, Southern Southern link well as high but here's some charity for you and your followers. In the lane through narration, he says, because I see that some of your people have fallen on hard times, imagine asleep saying that, right.
And it tells you that the condition of the Sahaba after the Higgs rather migration, they were dehydrated, Edmund drop, traveling through the desert for weeks.
You know, without food without water without transportation.
Many of them when they arrived, they were sick, they were ill, dehydrated, malnourished. So he says your people have fallen on hard times here, please. And then when the profits of autism says please take it from here meaning go give it to them for in Lusaka, know, Marshall Gambia he said that that we meaning the family of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi Salaam prophets and the families of profits, we do not take from charity.
And so the reason why use is some people ask that some of the scholars discussed that why did he use the word? Well, I didn't say La colusa I don't need charity. Why did he say that? We either he's meaning we as profits, or maybe because maybe some of his family members were sitting with him as well. It means we as the family of Muhammad's a lot of them we don't take from charity.
So give it to them. Then he says I came back and then lengthier narration. He actually clarifies that in order for me to scrounge up enough dates again. It took me like a week or so. So by that time, the profits a lot of them had now made it to Medina. He had settled in Medina. So I went to go visit him there. And then I put it down again and he
So Mama, what is this? And I said, this is a gift. And then the Prophet slicin called the people he took one and he called the people he said, Come on, dig in.
And then he says that I went in the lengthier narrations, he says that I went around, and I sat down at a place where I could see his back, where I wasn't too close to be conspicuous or weird, right, but close enough to where I could see. But the thing was, he was wearing a shawl. Like his upper garment, the process of a lot of times, we'll read about the garments of the process and the clothes, that when the when the types of clothing you would wear is that he would have a shawl wrapped around his upper body. So you have to show on, so I couldn't see his back.
And I just kept kind of sitting there staring, kind of peeking, peering hoping some way somehow I'd be able to see the seal of profit on his back. And after a while, the profit of a loss a lot even kind of sends me, you know, that there's somebody being weird, right.
And so the prophets, a lot of them realized it was me. And knowing that I had brought him charity, and called it very clearly charity Subbu. And I brought him a gift instead of hadiya. And now I just happened to be sitting behind him staring at his back the profits a lot. He said, I know what you're looking for. And he kind of lowered his shawl kind of like, opened his shirt, and showed me on his back. And I saw the seal of profit.
And the extended narration says that's a man with the Allahu taala. No, he says, When I saw the seal of profit on the back of the process, and I ran forward, and I hugged the profits a lot. He saw him from behind, and I kissed his back.
And I started to cry. And I said that I've been looking for you my whole life.
That truth that I've been searching for my whole life that I finally found it.
And that's how he became Muslim.
But he was a slave.
So he says, brother came and went, came and went, not only I went, I couldn't go and pray with the prophets, a lot of them. I wasn't able to spend time imagine cinema.
This man that traveled around everywhere, traveled the east,
right searching for truth, well sold into savory in his pursuit of the truth.
And now he lives literally, in the city of the prophets a lot, so many can go and sit with him and learn from him.
It was torture. But he was a slave. And a slave owner was a wretched man. brutal, very demanding, very oppressive.
So he said, I couldn't learn. I couldn't pray with him. I didn't get to go to bother. I didn't get to go.
I was miserable.
I would sneak out here and there to try to come and spend time with the profits. Awesome.
So he says that one time I came to the profits a lot a salon, and I was so distraught. And he said what's wrong cinema? And he said, Look, again.
I've known you for for five years now.
I can't benefit from you.
So the profits, a lot of them said Khatibi. So why don't you go and negotiate a contract with your owner? Look, I know he's a terrible guy. But at the end of the day, he's greedy.
Money's advice. So go and tell him your opinion. There was a contract. The Quran talks about it as well. mokaba where a slave is allowed to earn his freedom. So once you earn your freedom
so he said that I went and I told the slave owner, I'd like to purchase my freedom macatawa cotney.
And he said he he gave the most ridiculous price. He said that look, I have this plot of land that can fit about 300 day pumps. You need to plan 300 day pumps from you there. Now understand one date palm. A tree that grows dates in that place is basically what?
In a city and first of all, in Arabia itself, where dates are descended from a food in a city that is a farming town. And their primary source of business and income and livelihood is the growing and the selling of dates. A date palm tree is what?
It's a business asset.
It's a business asset for a car salesman. It's a car. It's a brand new vehicle. It's 2015.
All right, for somebody who runs a factory, it's like machinery, its equipment. It's not just merchandise, the dates or merchandise. The date palm itself is the machine that produces the merchandise. So that costs $100,000. That's very expensive stuff. said I need 308 palm trees
where do you get them
But you need to get 300 day pumps, you need to plant them there. And if they take roots and they're fruitful, then that'll be the price. Oh, and the narration says any and before I left if I could leave before I could agree to the contracts that oh one other thing, I need 40 ounces of gold, like 40 grams of gold.
So gonna figure it out.
So he says the next time I saw the profits a lot, he said him, I was very embarrassed. I was quiet. I was kind of almost dodging him.
And he saw me and he said, What happened? Yes.
What happened? And so he said, he said I was very hesitant. But I told the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Yeah, he agreed to the contract. But the problem is that he wants 308 pumps.
And I didn't even tell him about the gold. How do you tell somebody that?
Right? And so I just said, you know, just 308 pounds. The person said, Okay, no problem. They prayed. So after a lot of the profits, a lot of them stood up and he said, I know how can help your brother.
Help your brother.
And he said people started standing up and making their pledges.
I'll give 10 trees I'll get five trees. I'll give two trees I'll give one tree people are giving away their own day pumps.
until somebody tally them all up and we came to 300 the profits a lot of these upset Okay, everybody, bring them out to the property the land tomorrow, bring them out there, start digging the holes in which will plant the trees. But then don't do anything else. Wait for me to get there.
Now there's two things. Number one, of course the profits or losses you made everybody contribute and everyone generously contributed. Secondly, the profits, a lot of them did not create the attitude and Medina where you can write a check and call it a day. Whoever did it donated the number of trees, that person had to go home, dig up those trees, bring them over the next day, dig the holes for those trees had to put in the physical work and labor as well. You don't just write a check and mail it in. No, no, you have to come and work into a community. This is our sense of community is developed.
Right and also if anybody's ever been in a position to donate, understand one thing that when you donate and then you actually go and work and serve and participate in volunteer. it humanizes the people that you're donating to. They're no longer just it's a statistic. They're not just an item on your spreadsheet, on your monthly expenses. It changes the dynamic. So everybody pitched in and help someone so the messenger Can you imagine the profits a lot easier walking out there? Right at this point in time the Profit System is in his mid 50s.
He walks out there rolls up his sleeves, says gets positions as I bring me the first treat.
And that dirt, puts it into the ground scoops that dirt in arounded packs into dirt moves on to the next one. Imagine crouching down his bag getting dirt all over his arms and his hands on his clothes. This is Muhammad Rasul Allah likes a lot Islam is the greatest man that ever lived. This is a man who received divine revelation. And this is his humility and his service his trademark
for a slave
to help a foreigner, foreigner
right, foreign slave purchases freedom, because those things that is what the profits are lovely. Some saw the problem saw saw a human being he saw a believer,
he saw a man of devotion and dedication.
Right. So they planted the trees in the very interesting thing this nation mentions also, the other one does as well, that basically the process of planting all the trees, and they gave fruit that's very same year that was not the norm. Normally when you planted them, it would take like at least a year of them taking root and then they would give fruits but they gave fruit that same year so that someone would be able to earn his freedom
sooner rather than later.
And why he needed to earn his freedom sooner, I'll tell you in just a minute. But all except one tree. One reason says or not one says salmaan. Possibly they did it together. That one tree, maybe the Profit System overlooked one tree or whatever it was that one tree they went ahead and put into the ground. And all except for that one tree did not give fruit. And when the profits allow these who came back to check it to kind of review the work. He saw that this one wasn't giving fruit and he said what's wrong with this one?
And so oh my god, Allahu taala and Who said that? I planted that one.
And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, okay,
but that's right. Tell me
You know, to, and the profits allowed him to get out of the ground
and then put it back in with his own blessing hands and it gave fruit right away.
But the story of someone isn't over. So now they go back to the masjid they kind of you know, they're all kind of celebrating gay, Mashallah, we did it.
And someone's kind of got this look on his face.
He's not happy. He's not celebrating in the process. And so what's wrong?
And he's like, Yeah.
Like, I How do you say after somebody's done all of this for you? How do you say I need like a big chunk of gold? How do you say that to somebody?
So he said he was very embarrassed in the process of some set speed. Tell me.
He said he's asked for a ballerina opium in that 40 grams of gold.
The profits or licenses, Okay, no problem.
He said the process ism reached over he had been he had just received a gift. And the gift was still wrapped up. Like it was just it looked like a big block or a chunk. Like it was a package. And it was wrapped up inside of some cloth. Right? And it was just wrapped up inside of there. Like he hadn't even opened it up and looked at what it was.
And he just reached back and he grabbed that gift. And he handed it to me. He goes here, here you go take it 10
I didn't even know what was inside of it, or how much it was or whatever it was. I wasn't about to argue.
I was just rolling at this point. So I just went and I met the owner. And he said, I told him all your trees have been planted.
And he's like in the gold. And he said, Here you go, you jerk. Right. And so I get I put the goal, just the package down in front of him. He unwraps it and he said I'm sitting there looking at it's a big chunk of gold, solid gold.
And that wasn't good enough for him either. So he brought out his scale is like to check.
You know, an honest man, right?
So I have to check. I'm just extorting you, but I'm an honest man. So he said that I have to check. So he said some man says what law he? For what? levena fcbd. I swear by Allah, I swear to God.
When he measured it, it came out to be exactly 40.
It was exactly 40 on the dot.
Not one gram less, not one gram more 40. Exactly.
And he said, then I became free. I was free. I was a free man.
And I told you against a man story, of course goes on even further. But why was it important that someone be freed sooner rather than later.
So that's a man could participate in the next battle that happened that very same year, which was the Battle of the trench, the Battle of conduct that winter.
And what happened in the Battle of the trench when Medina was going to be attacked by an allied forces by the army? What happened at that time? The prophets a lot of them conducted, you know, shooter, he consulted with everyone.
That what should we do? How will we protect Medina in this situation? And nobody really had any idea. And salmaan are the Allahu taala. And who was the one who gave the suggestion at that time? That what we should do?
it's plugged into the little
easier to get it out. No, no, no on the front of it.
Oh, no, no, not that.
Good. Zach locker. Thank you.
Alright, so as I was mentioning, when the Battle of the trench happened in this huge army was attacking Medina. And he said, How do we protect Medina and the prophets, a lot of them consulted consultation. It was a man in Farsi, who gave the suggestion
that we should build a trench around Medina. We should dig a trench around Medina. And this was a type of, you know, strategy that was not common to the Arabs.
But again, you see that sense of community First of all, so some man made that contribution. So it was important that he participated. You see the divine plan.
But also what's very remarkable that the scholars mentioned is that Sandman was a newcomer to the community was a foreigner. He was a freed slave, very recently started participating in the community. But nobody belittled him and nobody turned him down and he felt completely comfortable offering. Think about the environment, the profits, a lot of them created.
Samantha's comfortable sharing his opinion.
And just very quickly, that when they started actually digging the trench and the profits a lot, he's assigned everyone a particular area to dig. And he said, basically team up with your cousins or your brothers and you know people that you know, team up with your family members, your cousins and brothers and start digging. pick a spot and start digging
Samana, the Allahu taala, who doesn't have any cousins or brothers?
So he said, What do I do?
So some of them will Haji Ron said, Come join us.
Because logically when we're foreigners here, we're immigrants. We came here from somewhere else. You are a foreigner. You came here for someone else. You belong with us. You're one of our brothers. One of us. Come on. You're on T Mahajan.
Right. And the Ensenada c'est la. You were here in Medina before Islam came to Medina.
So Islam came to Medina after you are already in Medina. So you came to Medina before Islam that makes you an unsavoury.
So you come on, you come onto our site, you dig with some of us.
And what's really interesting is that you have to kind of look at some different narrations to extrapolate this fact. But the elder Sahaba, the Kibo Sahaba, they understood they they used to practice a little bit more disciplined and adept with the profits of children and old people and Bedouins and newcomers. They didn't know what the protocol was right to them the promises, it was just a guy, they were meeting for the first time, right, or two kids, he was like a father figure to the elders, he was like just somebody they would want to talk to. Right. And so they would very casually interact with him and he welcomed it. But the Senior Companions who had been there for
decades with the profits on the for over a decade, with the profits allottee Center, they were very particular, they were very well behaved with the profits allottee center. So they actually say is that we would not take every single dispute to the profits allottee Center, we didn't like to trouble him bothering him with little little things. We would we were and also we had to learn how to resolve this stuff on our own. Right, we have to figure out how to kind of handle our own problems. So we wouldn't take every little thing back to him.
So that means that this argument between the Mahajan and the Assad would not be brought to the profits a lot assumes attention. If it did not become a heated debate in argument. Think about how hotly this issue was being contested. how seriously they were arguing and debating the issue. That it became an argument that had to be brought to the attention of the messengers a lot.
And when it was brought to the attention of the prophets a lot he some How did the prophets a lot some famously settled the debate. He said some monumental elevate somehow will not deal with the Mahajan. He will not deal with the inside of you'll dig with me and my family members because my mom is my family.
Right So that's just a part of the story of Solomon pharmacielo the Allahu Allah Allah and the reason why Timothy brings this narration here is because it mentions the seal of prophethood
there's just two short narrations and we'll just wrap this up inshallah.

istockphoto aka Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sakala nam walakum mucha Lucha de la I was stopped Finley them big. Well I mean in our minutes
Abdullah bin Salman just radi Allahu taala, who are some Jesus, excuse me. He says that I came to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And he was sitting amongst a group of his companions. I went around him to the point where I was now standing behind him. And he recognized what I was looking for. So he lowered the shawl from his back. And I saw the place of the Seal of prophethood. And it was he says that it was on his shoulders. That which is a way of saying that it was in on his back in line with the shoulders, between the shoulders and he says Mithra jumari. It was like, a, it was like a clump. Juma refers to like a fist, but what he means it wasn't the size of a fist, it just was a clump, it was round.
around it were a few moles. It was almost like from a disk. When I looked at it from afar, it seemed like it was illegal in the Arabic language means like a wart, like kind of like something that's on the skin like it was a protrusion, it stuck out from his skin, it was on top of his skin. Then I went back to, to sitting in front of him. And I said, May, it's either I said, May Allah forgive you a messenger of Allah, it doesn't mean this in a negative sense. Or he's basically referring to the eye of Sultan phots, where he's saying God has forgiven all of your sins, meaning allies, protected you from sins or messenger of Allah. And the prophets. A lot of them said, May Allah forgive your
sins, as well. So he said, when I went back, and I told the people the story, they said, or that the people that were sitting around him later on, they said to me,
that the Messenger of Allah made to offer your forgiveness. like wow, the messenger allow me to offer your forgiveness. And I said, Yes. And he also made to ask for your forgiveness, too.
And now, either Abdullah, the narrator, the Sahabi. He then recited the verse of the Quran, when they said when he said to them, he's also asked for your forgiveness he makes to offer you for your forgiveness do and they were like, no, he never said that to me. He said it to you, but I never said it to me, that Abdullah said, haven't you read the eye of the Quran that Allah commands the profits allottee somewhat start fiddly them big. ask Allah for forgiveness of your mistakes, well meaning our minutes and for the believing men and women.
And some narrations mentioned
that when the people asked him, that the Messenger of Allah may do offering your forgiveness. He said yes. And he may he may offer your forgiveness to right like he's basically consoling them or saying that may even offer your forgiveness. And the prophets a lot he said was still there, and the prophets a lot he some then recited the ayah was Safin me them because meaning minute that Allah has commanded me. Of course I made to offer all of you forgiveness, unless commanded me to ask Allah for forgiveness of my mistakes.
And also specifically to make the offer the forgiveness of the believing men and women. Most commentators of the Hadith, however, have said that these are more likely the words of the Sahabi the narrator Abdullah even suffragists, who basically is reminding them that when they're so shocked by the fact like, oh, my goodness, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam made to offer your forgiveness, and he said, we need to offer your forgiveness to and they're like, No, No, he doesn't. He said, Of course he does. Haven't you read the Koran? Don't you pay attention. Allah commanded him to make the offer your forgiveness, so of course he does.
Now, just to wrap up the chapter, I just wanted to share a couple of very just basic points, that some of the scholars the commentators on this topic and
that they make about this particular issue of the Seal of prophethood. Number one, the first issue is, was the prophets a lot he said I'm born with this seal or not,
was he born with this seal or not?
There are some narrations which gives the idea that the seal what he was not born with it,
that it appeared on his back after the angels had come and split his chest. And as we talked about in the sera class in the morning, that when they removed that, that black speck or cloth from his heart, and purified and washed his art, that at that time to seal have profited
Hear the other thing, another little detail that even mentions that the seal of prophethood was on the back of the processor, but it was not dead center, it was a little bit more towards the left, it was closer to his left shoulder blade than it was his right shoulder blade. And again, because of that the nuance that they mentioned in that is it again, it was aligned with his heart.
The next thing, the next issue that some of the scholars talk about allama munari talks about this, that there are some narration from a smart beans, Abu Bakar
that some of the Sahaba were in such shock, after the passing of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam that they were just refusing to believe that the prophets a lot of them had passed away. They were like, No, absolutely not, we will not believe it.
And so, a smile brings me back had asked your sister out and showed the body of the Protestants and was in the home, the apartment of our Chateau de la Mancha. She has permission from a sister Can I bring over some people and show them the body of the profits a lot he said
she said he has bring him and when they brought him in, that they actually lifted up the body of the process of slightly and they saw that the seal of profit on his back was gone.
That the seal of profitability was gone.
And then the last issue that's discussed by some of the narrator's even Muna bas, who are well in Manabe, who is one of the Tabby owner student of the Sahaba. He actually says that each and every single prophet have a similar physical feature or mark or seal of prophethood. But normally with most of the prophets, it would be on their right hand, the seal the mark of profit will be on the right hand for the profits allottee 70 was placed on his back where it was placed. And that was a unique feature of the profits allottee center because he was not just a profit or a messenger, but he was the seal in the finality of profits. So his mark was special and it was placed on his back.
But lucky to be alive Of course Allah subhanaw taala knows best again, may Allah subhanaw taala allow us to learn from the prophets a lot he said I'm and implement all the lessons and the all the guidance and the wisdom that we discussed today from the life of the prophets a lot. He sent me a lot give us all the ability to practice everything that was said and heard. So Hannah, like you will be happy to hear from Hannah Colonia Hambrick Nationale de la ilaha illa Anta Socrative Allah to relate
