00:00:27--> 00:00:34

Does anyone has the sheet for the topics? Or was the exact wording on my topic was something to do with women and

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

older women.

00:00:56--> 00:01:10

There's a lot of hunger Hey man hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah I'm about to be live Samir emunah shaytani r rajim Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem wa salam aka Lara Mata Lila mean.

00:01:11--> 00:01:15

Ye Sol Allahu alayhi wa sallam law, you know?

00:01:16--> 00:01:18

What akuna ha by la

00:01:20--> 00:01:32

Manoir de barra de la cama or come on par la la salatu salam respected brothers and sisters, I'm sure sisters are listening. inshallah hopefully they will listen

00:01:33--> 00:01:47

because sometimes what happens is when we are having a conference for brothers, sisters are having their own conference in the section Mashallah. So, I will request from the sisters to listen attentively, because this topic is about them,

00:01:48--> 00:01:50

it is concerning them

00:01:51--> 00:01:53

the role of Muslim women

00:01:56--> 00:02:05

Why are we talking about Muslim women, because Muslim women are very often unfortunately neglected, generally speaking,

00:02:06--> 00:02:10

when it comes to their roles in the society

00:02:12--> 00:02:13

and they

00:02:15--> 00:02:20

serve as a pillar of Muslim family.

00:02:21--> 00:02:29

If you remove women from any Muslim family, there is no family it cannot exist. So, they are the first teachers

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

they are the supporters.

00:02:34--> 00:02:43

And I will not say anything for myself, I will give specific examples whereby you can actually learn from

00:02:44--> 00:02:48

some of the people who lived in the life

00:02:49--> 00:02:51

or during the life of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:02:53--> 00:02:54

So,

00:02:57--> 00:03:13

firstly what is the role of Muslim women, Muslim women may be mothers they may be sisters, they may be wives they may be daughters, Muslim women can serve in all these capacities in their own way.

00:03:16--> 00:03:36

pissaro Allah sallallahu Sallam he stated in an authentic hadith kulu, Qumran waka Luca masala all of you are shepherds. And all of you are responsible. And this is very, very long with the promises and talks about you know,

00:03:38--> 00:03:39

people in

00:03:40--> 00:04:16

positions of responsibility. Women also have responsibility towards this oma. Whether they know about it or not, is another question. But they share equal responsibility for the well being of this oma whether they live in a village or they live in a giant city like London, or New York or Canada or even in a small city like Blackburn, you have responsibilities especially nowadays, it has become easier to fulfill your responsibilities.

00:04:17--> 00:04:27

We cannot use excuses like I have children, I am confined. I cannot leave the house without my husband's permission. x, y and Zed.

00:04:30--> 00:04:31

Allah has given

00:04:33--> 00:04:52

opportunities to every Muslim to do certain things. What you do need to look at is what you can do with your time, with your health, with your wealth, and with your lives in general. You need to look at what you can do.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

What you cannot do is not your business. A lot of the people in the Muslim community including men

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

We talk about things we cannot influence directly or even indirectly, we are talking about government or governments in the Middle East, many, many a time we meet Muslims. When we get together, we start, we start talking about things happening in UAE, things happening in Saudi Arabia, things happening in Pakistan, in Morocco in Malaysia, we start talking about countries and policies and politics. And none of us have the qualification to discuss these topics. Our knowledge is minimal. Our experience is minimal.

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

We don't have the credentials to have opinions on these matters, because you what you have is a pixel not the picture, you will never know the complete picture never because you are not in that position. So we we spend hours upon hours discussing these topics. Likewise, our sisters, women, they spend hours upon hours discussing topics they cannot influence issues they cannot influence while the children, their husbands, their brothers, the fathers who need them the most are being neglected.

00:06:14--> 00:06:20

Same goes for men. So this is why it is very important to give you relevant examples.

00:06:22--> 00:06:27

Most importantly, the role of Muslim women is to maintain

00:06:30--> 00:06:32

harmony within the family.

00:06:34--> 00:06:36

What we call if you want to call it peace,

00:06:38--> 00:06:42

or if you want to call it you know what the Arabic word we call Sakina

00:06:44--> 00:06:46

Sakina. Allah says in the Quran,

00:06:47--> 00:06:49

that Allah has made you

00:06:50--> 00:06:53

couples, so that you seek what

00:06:56--> 00:07:18

you seek harmony within each other. So the purpose of this bond, when men and women come together in Islam is to seek harmony, peace, tranquility, actually, tranquility is the right word, the closest word we can use to translate Sakina the concept of Sakina okay.

00:07:19--> 00:07:34

tranquility in the household. Of course, it is a mutual thing. But women in particular, have the ability and the power to maintain it, to sustain it.

00:07:37--> 00:07:39

And this in itself is a topic.

00:07:41--> 00:07:43

So if women become accommodating

00:07:45--> 00:07:50

towards their husbands in particular, and the rest of the family

00:07:51--> 00:07:55

in general, they can do wonders. Let me give you an example.

00:07:57--> 00:08:02

I'll give you a few examples. When Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was in difficulty,

00:08:04--> 00:08:05

a man

00:08:06--> 00:08:36

can fight battles on all fronts in life. A man can face economic difficulties, health difficulties, a man may even be able to face depression on his own. But what a man cannot handle his disturbance at home. This is why Allah subhanaw taala put so much emphasis in Islam on the role of women to make a household

00:08:37--> 00:08:38

paradise on earth.

00:08:41--> 00:08:49

If you have a flourishing peaceful, harmonious household, you have the closest thing to paradise in this world.

00:08:51--> 00:09:09

Let me explain. You may have all the money in the world you may have all the power you may be a prime minister or president or a general or a tycoon or something like that. But if your household if you do not have peace at home, if you don't have a good partner, if you don't have a good wife.

00:09:11--> 00:09:32

The reason why I'm emphasizing on why is this because the topic is role of women. That's what I'm talking about. Otherwise it could be the other way around. You know I can talk about men's responsibilities as well and their roles, which most of the time people talk about their responsibilities. I am today addressing responsibilities of women to make this oma successful,

00:09:33--> 00:09:41

to raise leaders of the future, to raise leaders of the present to make them men

00:09:42--> 00:09:43

lead this oma

00:09:46--> 00:09:56

on all fronts whether is earning halaal because that's also a front for a man. When a man leaves his his home in the morning

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

he should leave

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

With a happy heart,

00:10:03--> 00:10:07

then he will strive. He will go out and he will ensure that his family

00:10:09--> 00:10:14

is catered for his family's taken care of. If he leaves with a sad heart,

00:10:15--> 00:10:16

he will fail.

00:10:17--> 00:10:20

If he leaves with a broken heart, he will not succeed.

00:10:22--> 00:10:29

This is why the importance of Khadija rhodiola ohana in Islam is paramount. Do you know why Khadija is so special?

00:10:32--> 00:10:39

My sisters, those who those of you who are listening right now to me inshallah, let me explain why Khadija was so important.

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

Out of all women

00:10:44--> 00:10:55

in the entire history of Islam, Khadija radula aha is given a very special status number one status, what is her position in Islam? Who is going to tell me

00:10:57--> 00:11:03

Khadija Khadija Raja lawanna What is his sorry, her position in Islam?

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

Who is going to tell me

00:11:07--> 00:11:08

first?

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

Yes, okay.

00:11:15--> 00:11:17

first woman to accept Islam and sorry,

00:11:18--> 00:11:20

the mother of the believers, of course.

00:11:22--> 00:11:28

As the Quran says, our beloved Russia cannaregio Miller Han Rahim and bu Allah will momineen.

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

Well, as well, you Maha To whom?

00:11:34--> 00:11:53

The Prophet sallallahu wasallam is Allah Bill momineen. He takes precedence over all believers, the prophet takes precedence over all believers. And because of that, by that virtue, his wives are the mothers of believers.

00:11:54--> 00:12:16

Because he takes precedence precedence over all believers in honor in dignity and respect, in following any and all these important things, by that virtue, his wives are not ordinary women. They are not ordinary women like any other woman, they are special by that virtue. So she is the mother of the believers.

00:12:17--> 00:12:19

And what is her position?

00:12:21--> 00:12:23

As a woman in the history of Islam?

00:12:25--> 00:12:29

When I say Islam, I mean from Mala Mala Salam all the way up to the end.

00:12:30--> 00:12:36

What is her position? She is one of the four most special women in Islam.

00:12:38--> 00:12:39

Did you know that?

00:12:40--> 00:12:44

Who are those four women who is going to give me the names?

00:12:46--> 00:12:46

Sorry.

00:12:48--> 00:12:49

Okay, go ahead.

00:12:54--> 00:12:55

No, she's not one of them.

00:12:56--> 00:13:02

arsia The woman? Yes, Maria. Maria. Maria.

00:13:04--> 00:13:06

Sorry, Fatima.

00:13:07--> 00:13:09

And why is Fatima special?

00:13:11--> 00:13:33

No, one of the reasons why father My special is because the one who came before her. Her mother, her mother, Khadija Fatima was special because of her mother. You see, this is why this is where the role of mothers comes in. Allahu Akbar. If the mother is a special woman, the daughters will be special by default.

00:13:34--> 00:13:50

It is very unlikely for the daughters to go astray. The daughters will follow. The example of the mothers like the sons will follow the example of the fathers. wise people say, when you marry a woman,

00:13:51--> 00:14:01

when you marry a woman when you consider a woman for nica as a partner, before you look at the woman, look at the

00:14:02--> 00:14:21

look at the mother. In other words, assess that character, the role, the status of the mother, if the mother of the whim of the woman you are considering for Monica brothers, are you listening to me the young ones, the youngsters, those who will get married inshallah, in the coming years?

00:14:23--> 00:14:27

Are you listening to me? These are the tips. And these words

00:14:29--> 00:14:30

they are set by the y's

00:14:32--> 00:14:36

are all ama our scholars, our predecessors? When you look at the mother,

00:14:38--> 00:14:46

the mother if she is an upright woman, if she's the principal woman, if she's a responsible woman, the daughters will be

00:14:48--> 00:14:50

most likely like the mother.

00:14:51--> 00:14:57

And if the mother, generally speaking, of course, there can be exceptions. If the mother is irresponsible.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

She doesn't look very clean.

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

She's not well behaved. She's not very principled, that it is highly likely for the daughter to be like the mother. So you can avoid problems by looking at the mothers.

00:15:16--> 00:15:19

And I have learned this from experience.

00:15:21--> 00:15:26

I've had many experiences in life, in my own family, where you see the mothers,

00:15:29--> 00:15:47

when they are good women, the daughters also are good. They take that goodness with them, to the families they go to. And if the mothers are lose women, they do lose talk, their behavior is lose, the character is lose, the daughters will be always influenced by the mothers.

00:15:48--> 00:16:25

So this is why for tomorrow, the Aloha was a very, very, very special woman, of course, because she was the daughter of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, but partly because the mother was at the heart of the law. So why was she special? So we started the status. He is one of the four women who will be the leaders of the women of Jenna Asya, special woman, special, very special women, special to an extent that they name has been preserved until the day of judgment. Then Maria Maria Salam who was a who was the mother of a mighty messenger of Allah.

00:16:28--> 00:16:29

And then

00:16:30--> 00:16:44

Khadija brought the lawn ha, why? Let me explain why Now, let me give you some glimpses into the reality. So our wives, our mothers, our daughters, our sisters can learn from these examples.

00:16:46--> 00:16:49

Why was the Prophet so much in love with Khadija?

00:16:55--> 00:17:21

Very good. The chef said, when the Prophet asked for help, Khadija was always accommodating. That's a very general statement. You're right, absolutely, that is the cause. But specifically, let me give you specific examples how Khadija endured with her husband, even though he was he had not yet announced Islam.

00:17:23--> 00:17:31

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam had not yet announced Islam, because who was the first person to embrace Islam in the entire history of Islam?

00:17:33--> 00:17:35

Some people say what a COVID novel.

00:17:38--> 00:17:39

Others say it was Khadija

00:17:41--> 00:17:42

Some say Abubakar.

00:17:44--> 00:17:54

So, the the reconcile between these opinions they say from women, it was Khadija for men, independent men, it was aboubaker from

00:17:56--> 00:18:14

scholars, someone who knew the scriptures, it was Baraka nofal and we will talk about it very quickly inshallah. So why was Khadija special, it's best to talk with examples so that you can understand why people become special. Khadija was special because she stood by our husband

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

in every single difficult moment.

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

You see when you have ease when you are driving flashy cars, when you have

00:18:24--> 00:18:32

a lot of money. When you have big houses, when you businesses going fine. When you bring a lot of food and provisions.

00:18:34--> 00:18:54

At home, everything is fine. Everyone's happy everyone is with you. Right? When you are rich and everything is going fine for you. People come and join you. Right everyone wants the wants a piece of the cake. Your wife is there for you, very often your children when things start to fall apart

00:18:55--> 00:18:57

when things start to go wrong.

00:18:58--> 00:19:03

That's when you see the true loyalty of people around you.

00:19:06--> 00:19:15

True brotherhood true sisterhood through a womanhood or manhood is shown in difficulties

00:19:17--> 00:19:30

right? How do we know this? This is from Islam. This principle actually comes from Islam rasuna losses from said the best sadaqa Are you listening everyone the best sadhaka is given in difficult times.

00:19:32--> 00:19:44

So if you are rich if you are a millionaire and you give 1000 or 2000 pounds in South Africa, okay, Mashallah. It is a great virtue to give sadaqa but when you have

00:19:46--> 00:19:47

10 pounds in your pocket,

00:19:48--> 00:19:55

and you give that 10 pounds in South Africa, when you need South Africa yourself, that sort of

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

weighs on the scale with the last panel tala

00:20:00--> 00:20:04

heavier than when a millionaire gives 1000 pounds that 10 pounds.

00:20:06--> 00:20:08

Or one pound for that matter.

00:20:09--> 00:20:23

weighs heavy on the scale with Allah subhanaw taala. Then, when a millionaire may give 100,000 pounds, so it's not about the amount. It's about the position you're in. It's about how difficult the times are.

00:20:24--> 00:20:30

Why is a worker special? Because he stood by the prophet sallallahu Sallam and everyone abandoned him.

00:20:32--> 00:20:41

accompanying the Prophet was like, asking for certain depth. Yes aboubaker was with the prophet in the cave.

00:20:44--> 00:20:58

The God of Thor, the Cave of Thor, when a worker was there, and Allah subhanaw taala in Surah Baqarah sorry, Surah Surah Tauba Surah Tauba verse number 100 100. Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this very specifically.

00:21:02--> 00:21:21

When Allah says his wife alohar is the poodle Isa AB, la has an in Allah hamana that when those two were in the cave, and one set to his companion, do not fear Do not fear allies with us.

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

Allah is with us.

00:21:25--> 00:21:30

And then we're Angela Allahu Sakina tahu LA

00:21:32--> 00:21:37

I hear the who big news, big news. lanta raha lanta. raha

00:21:38--> 00:21:49

Allah subhanaw taala helped him the companion who was in fear by sending Sakina upon him and helped him with forces with armies that could not be seen.

00:21:51--> 00:21:59

This is a worker. So Allah described his status in the Quran because it was very difficult. Likewise, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:22:00--> 00:22:11

he was in the cave of Hara, the first revelation came to him now I'm talking about Khadija why she is special. This is why she's special. Listen now carefully.

00:22:12--> 00:22:14

When the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:22:16--> 00:22:18

would go to the cave to contemplate.

00:22:23--> 00:22:40

When he became 35 years old, he wanted to go away from the society he wanted. He wanted seclusion. He didn't want to mix with the society anymore. A lot of us preparing him for the Great job, which was coming ahead. So he would go to the cave of Hara any ordinary wife.

00:22:43--> 00:22:48

Today, when a husband would do that, she would what would you say to him?

00:22:49--> 00:22:52

Where you going? You lost your mind. You're crazy.

00:22:54--> 00:22:55

Come out.

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

Why are you sitting in the cave? Go and do some work. Right?

00:23:02--> 00:23:06

I had to put the Punjabi in because this is the reality of our situation in some cases yet.

00:23:08--> 00:23:19

Some would shout some would say it nicely. Kindly. You know, depending on the woman you're married to. They will say all these things pavlovo democra. Boga. Are you crazy? You lost your mind.

00:23:21--> 00:23:36

But yamaga what's gonna happen with the kids? You're sitting in a cave contemplating? You need a doctor right now. A deja vu to walk from Makkah to the cave of Hira to give the professor some food.

00:23:39--> 00:23:42

If this is what he wants for himself, let him be.

00:23:44--> 00:23:55

Let him be. There are reports that the prophets Allah Salaam would walk the streets of Makkah and he would see poverty, extreme poverty. And this is one of the reasons he would he would go away from the city because he couldn't do anything.

00:23:57--> 00:24:03

And he would go home and he would be very disturbed. So Allahu Allahu wa salam, repeat after me, sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:24:04--> 00:24:18

He would be very disturbed when he would go home and he would speak and he will, you know, his face would speak. And his wife would ask him for strong, and he would tell her, I cannot tolerate this poverty and this injustice in Makkah.

00:24:19--> 00:24:36

There are too many poor widow and orphans walking around. She would pile up all her wealth. He was a rich woman. Remember, he was a rich woman and the profit was so strong was it that money belonged to her. It wasn't his. She would pile all that money in his feet.

00:24:38--> 00:24:43

Now I know what some of the woman may may be thinking now, but my husband is not like the Prophet.

00:24:45--> 00:24:49

He's not that responsible. He's not that virtuous. He's not that great. What are you doing with him then?

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

We, the point is, whatever husband you have, whatever character he has, you have to support him.

00:25:00--> 00:25:15

Because he's your husband, you're not going to have another husband, it is not allowed for you to have another husband. You will only have one husband, my sister, those of you who are listening, you will only have one husband in your life most of you

00:25:17--> 00:25:20

that husband is your daughter to Jenna.

00:25:21--> 00:25:32

You have to do well by him, you have to study his situation, every situation is unique. Every husband will come with new problems, unique problems. And you will have to deal with them accordingly.

00:25:33--> 00:25:48

So here in this case, this man comes to his wife and he goes undisturbed, and she puts all her wealth in his feed, go and spend it, go and give it in South Africa but don't be disturbed. I love you so much that I cannot see you like, and she was older than the professor.

00:25:50--> 00:26:14

The professor solemn, according to most reports was 25 when he married Khadija and Khadija was 40. She was 40 years old Yolanda. According to some reports, she was 35 he was older than the Prophet sallallahu ala. And she could get married to some of the chiefs of Makkah. People with a lot of influence with a lot of money, but she made a wise choice.

00:26:15--> 00:26:17

You know, a lot of proposals were coming for

00:26:19--> 00:26:23

because he was a rich woman. Anyone would want to get married to her.

00:26:25--> 00:26:41

So what happened in the cave now she would take food for him, comforting him taking care of his needs, his wants, if you want and sometimes sisters, I know your wisdom or your your mind cannot contemplate what your husband maybe is doing. You know, maybe he's wrong.

00:26:43--> 00:27:13

As long as he's not doing Haram, be with them. Stand by him, because you don't know what alumni bring in the future with him. What alumni do through him. So Khadija, the Aloha being the woman she was she supported her husband in all that it doesn't stop there. What happens in the cave cut the long story short sell Buhari if you pick up the hill Buhari, the first chapter Kitab will ye is one of the first reports I think, second or third report narrated by Sharia law and

00:27:15--> 00:27:24

how the revelation came came upon the progress on this along Hadees. Isaiah is narrating the story of Khadija Ayesha is narrating the story of Khadija.

00:27:26--> 00:27:38

And of course she's heard the story from the poor is Allah Salam. rasulillah salam had told the story to Isaiah. So he was in the cave, when the angel appeared to him.

00:27:41--> 00:27:42

And the angel said, read

00:27:46--> 00:27:48

a carabus Mira bakerella the HELOC.

00:27:49--> 00:27:51

First he said read ekra.

00:27:54--> 00:28:06

And he said ma RA, I cannot read. And by the way, this was foretold at least 1300 years before the Prophet was born. So the law is

00:28:08--> 00:28:21

this, this incident, because later on what Aqaba nofal, who was a man of scriptures, he knew the Jewish in the Christian scripture. He had studied them. According to the same studies.

00:28:22--> 00:28:23

He was

00:28:24--> 00:28:30

an alum of the Jewish and Christian, in other words, the Bible, he has studied the Bible.

00:28:32--> 00:28:44

And later on, Alex, I'll explain what happened later on this incident in the book of Isaiah, in the Bible, if you pick up the Bible today, even today,

00:28:45--> 00:28:48

if you go to chapter 29,

00:28:49--> 00:28:52

verse number 12, Isaiah 29

00:28:53--> 00:28:57

there is a prophecy about a prophet coming in the future. And it states

00:28:58--> 00:29:19

and I quote word by word, when the book is given to the one who is not learned, who is not learned. And it is said to him read, he will say I am not learned. I am not learned exactly the same thing happened to the prophet in the cave of Hara.

00:29:22--> 00:29:47

So jabril came and he said read, he said my anime party and he said to him again read three times. And then Darius took the profit and squeezed him against his chest so hard that the Prophet said I thought I was going to die. And then he let go of me. And he said to me again read and the Prophet said Marana Bihari and I am not learned I cannot read.

00:29:48--> 00:29:59

And then Darius gave five verses. So when was this foretold in the previous scripture? How long ago how

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

How long I just told you

00:30:03--> 00:30:07

1300 years and who is part of the story?

00:30:09--> 00:30:18

So Allah is talking about this incident 1000s I mean over 1000 years before the Prophet is born, why the Quran says in Surah iraf?

00:30:20--> 00:30:31

In verse 157, yes, you do know whom October and the Torah while in jail, they the Jews and the Christians, they find him mentioned in the Scripture with them.

00:30:32--> 00:30:37

So this is where the Prophet was foothold, and who's part of the story.

00:30:38--> 00:31:13

Anyone who is part of the story is part of the story is part of the prophecy, because the prophecy is about this incident, that he will be it will be set to him read and he will say I am not learned, this will happen. And it happened with the Prophet. What happens as a result, five verses of the Quran of Surah kalaloch are given to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam a crab is Mira Baker, la de Kala Kala Kala insaan Amina Allah dekra bukal, Accra, Allah, Allah Bella column, Allah Mallinson mala Mia Allah, the prophet is shocked.

00:31:14--> 00:31:23

Now comes the point. The role of women in Islam are examples, the role of women in Islam, the prophet is shocked.

00:31:25--> 00:31:28

He's sweating. He doesn't know what this means.

00:31:29--> 00:31:37

Can you imagine you're sitting in a cave and someone appears to you and this happens? You will be shocked. You will be in a state of trauma.

00:31:39--> 00:31:44

You will be terrified. So in that state, the prophet runs back to Makkah.

00:31:45--> 00:31:57

Who does he go to? He doesn't go to his people, his friends, his cousins, his uncles, he doesn't go to any of them. He goes straight to the person he trusts the most, and loves the most

00:31:59--> 00:32:02

and believes in the most. Who is that person?

00:32:04--> 00:32:07

He runs to Khadija Allahu Akbar into her arms

00:32:09--> 00:32:10

into her arms.

00:32:12--> 00:32:16

And what does he say? Some Maloney, some Maloney, Lockard cachito.

00:32:18--> 00:32:31

He tells his wife Khadija Cover me, cover me? Because I am scared about my life. I don't know what happened to me in the cave. That was very strange. What does Khadija do?

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

Does she tell him you're gone crazy. I'll get in touch with a psychiatrist. Or I will take you there. You know, she doesn't rebuke him. She doesn't insult him. She doesn't push him away. She doesn't make his situation more difficult. It's like my sister's, your husband's coming home today with problems.

00:32:52--> 00:32:52

Right.

00:32:56--> 00:32:59

If your husband loves you, and he comes to you, do not rebuke them.

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

Be a comforting force for them. Take your husbands in your arms, comfort them. Give them love and compassion. And they will love you in return you in ways you cannot imagine.

00:33:15--> 00:33:38

Allah will put love in their hearts for you. But when they come with problems and you go, it's all your fault. Is your problem. I didn't do it. I've got nothing to do with it. You go and sort this out, get lost, get out. Go and sell this go and sell that go and do this and do that. You failed you failure. You never do anything. Right. That is the you know what I'm talking about.

00:33:39--> 00:33:45

I'm sure sisters know what I'm talking about. This happens a lot, especially with Muslims. Unfortunately, for some reason.

00:33:47--> 00:34:04

This happens a lot. A lot of the sisters complained to the husbands when husbands comes when they come to the contrary, your attitude should be the opposite. You should comfort your husbands when they come to you with problems. You should be supportive.

00:34:05--> 00:34:17

Then that's when Allah will raise your status like Allah did with Khadija because what did Khadija do? When the Prophet said lucky luck Kashi to Allah nuptse. The province of La solemn

00:34:19--> 00:34:36

was shivering, sweating, shaking, traumatized, terrified, terrified, terrorized by this experience. Imagine Khadija started telling him it's your fault. I told you not to get caught in that cave. You're crazy, is stupid.

00:34:38--> 00:34:52

You don't deserve any attention. You don't deserve any comfort out of the villa how to build up. But she did what she was made for. She said to the price of insulin, Allah Allah Allah. Allah, Allah.

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah will never harm you a word of encouragement.

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

When someone is suffering when someone is in pain when someone is in a state of trauma, this is how you comfort them.

00:35:08--> 00:35:18

cauliflower Laila your physique Allahu Allah Allah will never harm you and Mohammed salatu salam. Why, in Naka la casilla Rahim

00:35:19--> 00:35:22

because you are a merciful man

00:35:24--> 00:35:29

what taxable what taxable madam. you support

00:35:31--> 00:35:34

the grieved ones people who are in you know grief, you support them.

00:35:37--> 00:35:41

What tax Takara Dave, you also honor your guests.

00:35:43--> 00:36:07

What do I know Alana was able Huck, and you support the truth wherever it is. So she is how is she comforting her husband? By telling him the good things about him Allahu Akbar, you see, my sisters. We can all learn from the example of Khadija how to be responsible how to play our roles, how to be good mothers, good wives, good sisters, good daughters.

00:36:08--> 00:36:10

Khadija teaches all of us.

00:36:12--> 00:36:52

So instead of rebuking her husband, she tells him, you know what, Allah will never harm you. Because you are a merciful man. You support the truth. You honor your guests. You have all these good qualities, there's nothing to worry about. Everything will be fine, you will be fine. or lie, a strong woman who supports a husband is better than 1 million complaining weak, abusive women. A strong woman who is patient with a husband, who supports her husband in difficulty is better than 1 million women who don't have these qualities.

00:36:53--> 00:37:39

What good is a woman to her husband if she cannot support them in time of difficulty? So what does she do? Being a wise woman he takes her husband, to a man of scriptures to talk to him Jani. This was a spiritual experience. She knew this was something spiritual. This is not from the material world. This is something from the world beyond. So she took him to the best person she knew to deal with these matters, water, carbon nofal, an alum, a scholar, and even she knew these mushriks the pagans of Makkah are useless. Even she knew this. They can't do nothing. This man. He is a man of scriptures. He has some sense some wisdom. Let's go to him. So they went to him. And then Baraka

00:37:39--> 00:37:45

asks Mohammed salatu salam, what happened to you? The Prophet tells him what happened. What occurred tells him

00:37:47--> 00:38:00

what occurred having heard the story as to what happened in the cave, he tells him has moose Allah, Vina, sal Allahu Allah Musa. This is the same spirit that came to Moosa.

00:38:03--> 00:38:13

La gente, an akuna Hagen is your original co muka. I wish I will be alive on the day when your people drive you out.

00:38:14--> 00:38:31

The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was shocked when he heard this. This was too much for him. Our Moto G home, they will drive me out me on the most pleasant man in this city. I'm the most friendly person in the city. They all of them, all of them, they like me.

00:38:32--> 00:38:46

They call me a sodic. I mean, why will they drive me out? This doesn't make sense. Then Baraka explains anyone who came with this message. Anyone who came with this profile, the profile you have now

00:38:47--> 00:39:17

was driven out by his people, was persecuted by his people, it will happen to you. And not only that, he's saying You're late. And he an akuna hired una vaca, who was a very old man at the time, he saying, I wish I will be alive when that happens. He's telling him this will happen to you. And this is why the alama the scholars of Islam believe that what aka embraced Islam, even before it was preached to him, even before he was invited to Islam. This is how fortunate some people are.

00:39:18--> 00:39:38

This is how fortunate some people are. The Prophet did not even preach. He didn't even know that he was a prophet yet. salatu salam, he has no idea. If he had an idea, he wouldn't say L'Aquila, Kakashi to Atlanta, see, I feared for my life. He wouldn't say these things. What a guy's telling him that this?

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

This is a very difficult responsibility. Yeah, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam.

00:39:48--> 00:39:55

And then Baraka died very soon after. And then the Prophet salallahu Salam saw watarrka in his dream later on.

00:39:56--> 00:39:58

Baraka dressed in white clothes

00:39:59--> 00:40:00

which means

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

A good end.

00:40:02--> 00:40:06

So the prophets Allah Salam basically said the worker died a Muslim

00:40:08--> 00:40:10

worker did not pray one Salah.

00:40:11--> 00:40:23

He did not say the Shahada in the right words, the exact words, but he said it in concept, conceptually accepted Islam because he told the Prophet You are a prophet of Allah.

00:40:24--> 00:40:26

Therefore, you will be driven out.

00:40:27--> 00:40:32

Heidegger's role in all this is paramount. paramount.

00:40:34--> 00:40:58

She did all of this. She comforted her husband, she made him strong. She gave him the strength he need, Allah chose her for him. She was part of the prophecy in the book of Isaiah, why over 1000 years ago, but why because she needed the strength. She needed Khadija rounder, so my sisters, you need to know the qualities of Khadija.

00:41:00--> 00:41:04

You want to be special with the law. You want to be with

00:41:05--> 00:41:09

Allah on the good side on the Day of Judgment, then read Khadija

00:41:10--> 00:41:24

read her behavior, her profile her characteristics, if you want to be with her, because Allah chose her to be with the professor of Solomon this time in very crucial time in the history of Islam.

00:41:26--> 00:41:42

Because she needed support in this allow Akbar. So it doesn't stop there. The prophets Allah Salam is boycotted. He's tortured. He's thrown around hadiza still children are being traumatized. Did she complain?

00:41:43--> 00:41:49

Did she complain that she say I'm dying? My children are suffering. What are you doing? What kind of a man are you?

00:41:50--> 00:42:06

What are you doing with us? No, she suffered. she endured. She was thrown out with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, she did not leave the side of her husband, Allahu Akbar. The Prophet never forgot her. He never forgot her.

00:42:10--> 00:42:14

And I'll tell you how the Prophet valued Khadija, even until the day he died, so

00:42:21--> 00:42:22

he never forgot her.

00:42:26--> 00:42:29

When the Prophet salallahu Salam was boycotted for three years,

00:42:30--> 00:42:34

they were thrown out in a place called zhob. rb fall in

00:42:35--> 00:42:39

the past. This was

00:42:40--> 00:42:54

a mountain pass outside of Makkah, they threw them out of the city boycotted no clothes, no food, no ties, no marriage, no talaq no janaza out. No sympathies.

00:42:56--> 00:43:02

Many people were shaken. During this experience. Many people were shaken badly.

00:43:03--> 00:43:13

And Dr. de la, she died because of this boycott. She lost her life. The most.

00:43:14--> 00:43:19

The most difficult part of the Prophet's life was this year

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

amahl hosen is called

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

the year 10

00:43:26--> 00:43:39

of the profits Prophethood. The year 10 because in the year seven of profit or not Hijri not Hydra, year, seven of profit and when the Prophet had been preaching for seven years.

00:43:41--> 00:43:47

He was thrown out for three years. And then in the 10th year of his preaching.

00:43:48--> 00:43:50

Abu Talib died first Khadija died.

00:43:51--> 00:44:04

First Khadija rhodiola and he died because of the boycott because of the poverty and the suffering. The Prophet and his family suffered so much that they had to boil leather from dead animals to eat.

00:44:05--> 00:44:10

They had to eat grass and roots and Herbes from the desert.

00:44:11--> 00:44:12

They had no food

00:44:14--> 00:44:23

you know, it's nice, it's easy to pray in air conditioned mosques today in carpeted mosques, and go on five star and seven star hygiene ombre and all that

00:44:25--> 00:44:26

and run between Safa and Marwa

00:44:28--> 00:44:36

with air conditioning on it's easy to do that. But when you look at the life of the professor and put yourself in that place, you know

00:44:37--> 00:44:46

then you realize how much sacrifices he and his family gave for us. So these are died because of that illness. The Prophet lost her

00:44:47--> 00:44:59

the love of his life, the support of his life then Abu Talib died soon after. And then the Prophet went to the city of five to get support from elsewhere and he was stoned.

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

He was stoned. This year is called

00:45:04--> 00:45:20

the year of sadness. The Prophet was sad. And this is why Rasulullah saw Salam. You know, when he his heart became started. Allah knew. Allah knows hearts. Allah revealed Surah Surah Surah Allah revealed the surah upon him to comfort him with surah. Anyone?

00:45:24--> 00:45:25

Which one?

00:45:26--> 00:45:29

No, that was before there was before.

00:45:31--> 00:45:41

Very powerful surah to comfort the Prophet. You think your time is difficult? You think you're going through difficulties? Watch this to a lot of us hoorah. So,

00:45:43--> 00:45:45

no, long Surah

00:45:47--> 00:45:48

Surah Yusuf.

00:45:49--> 00:45:59

So the use of was revealed at this time, when Rasul Allah says, Why? Why? To tell the story of this young boy

00:46:00--> 00:46:11

who was betrayed by his brothers thrown into a well sold into slavery. Can you imagine his situation, the hopelessness, the hopelessness of use of

00:46:12--> 00:46:16

sold into slavery? Can you imagine being carried by slavers?

00:46:18--> 00:46:22

You know, how slaves were treated in the ancient world? Do you have any idea?

00:46:24--> 00:46:27

Yep, the only value they had was money.

00:46:29--> 00:46:34

So long as so long as they were alive, they were money otherwise they were cattle. They were cattle.

00:46:35--> 00:47:05

So Allah is telling a story to profits or loss of them to comfort him. And then he gives him the conclusion as well. The end, the end is very good. Likewise, you Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, at the moment you're going through all these problems, but your end will be very good. And you will be successful. So be patient, very powerful surah to Surah in the Quran, a very, very powerful, not that others are not. But they are very, very powerful. They can shake you, they can make you

00:47:09--> 00:47:16

one Surah Surah Maria, very, very strong, very powerful. And so the use of also very strong and very powerful.

00:47:18--> 00:47:23

So Rasulullah Islam was comforted and he loved Khadija so much because of this

00:47:24--> 00:47:36

not the Aloha, that when the captives of butter, are you listening, brothers and sisters, when the captives of butter were caught among them was above us, Who was he?

00:47:38--> 00:47:44

The son in law of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, the husband of Xena, one of the daughters of Rasulullah, saw Salam from Khadija,

00:47:46--> 00:47:48

one of the daughters, Xena,

00:47:50--> 00:48:04

and amazing the Shia. They deny the existence of three daughters, by the way. I don't know if you know this. They deny they said there was only one daughter from Khadija Fatima, the other three. Either they didn't exist.

00:48:05--> 00:48:19

And if they existed, they were from the previous husbands of Khadija. They were not from the professor solo. Because you know why? Because they were married to a man two of them were married to a man. So today, they completely wash the hands from the daughters.

00:48:21--> 00:48:39

And some of them except that they were like adopted, daughters adopted daughters, and they were from the previous husbands. That's why the professor still married them off to a man. But we say to them, that's even worse. That's worse, because adopted daughters are like orphans, do you agree?

00:48:40--> 00:48:51

Allah may forgive you. Your negligence towards your own children, but you will never be forgiven if you are negligent towards orphans who are under your custody.

00:48:52--> 00:49:09

That's very important for you to understand. So when you say that they were just like nobodies are not important. That's why they were married off to people like with man, Aldo Bella, you know, when they, you know, make these derogatory statements, they don't think about them the consequences and the implications. So

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

husband of Xena was caught among the capitals of mother who had not yet embraced Islam. So ransom was asked

00:49:21--> 00:49:38

also what he is the son in law son in law will be treated like others. ransom so they know from Makkah, who was still in Makkah in the house of our class. She sent a necklace as a ransom a necklace as a ransom for her husband about us.

00:49:39--> 00:49:40

Is that clear?

00:49:42--> 00:49:45

So when the necklace came as a ransom

00:49:47--> 00:49:54

and the professor someone saw the necklace, he started to cry a lot. Some of them started to cry.

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

He saw the necklaces. Why is he getting? Nothing? Why is he crying?

00:50:01--> 00:50:15

He said this is a necklace which was given by Abuja to her daughter. If you don't mind, we return this necklace tomorrow sobre su they were also crying when they saw the promises on cry. This is how much the Prophet loved her.

00:50:16--> 00:50:24

Khadija even the necklace made him cry, let alone you know the woman herself. The necklace came to the prophet and he started to cry

00:50:26--> 00:50:37

and the necklace was returned with the permission of this our this our era Sula, how can we object and then it was sent back, I will ask was sent back and

00:50:38--> 00:50:49

he was said to send back my daughter to Medina because he was not a Muslim at the time I will ask was not a Muslim at the time. So he had to send the daughter Rasul Allah system to Medina Xena.

00:50:51--> 00:51:30

So Rasulullah citizen would say do Ayesha. Every time I said actually in a report that every time something good would happen or Salam would mentioned Khadija I wish Khadija was here. I wish because Khadija was here you know when he saw some you, you will love someone so much that you can never forget them. Every time every time some good occasion happens. You remember these people? So I said jasola because I was a very jealous, you know, woman in the sense that she had very strong jealousy for the Prophet. He loved the Prophet so much that her jealousy got the better of her. She said you're so low. Why do you remember that old woman from the past? He has gone?

00:51:31--> 00:51:36

I am. I was virgin when you married me. I am beautiful. I am young.

00:51:38--> 00:51:39

The Prophet said Oh, Ayesha

00:51:41--> 00:51:44

Khadija stood by me when the whole world abandoned me.

00:51:46--> 00:51:49

This is the role of women in Islam.

00:51:50--> 00:51:53

No matter what you are, you do not abandon your family.

00:51:55--> 00:51:57

You do not leave them

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

to suffering.

00:52:01--> 00:52:04

You give them compassion. If you are a daughter, comfort your father.

00:52:05--> 00:52:21

If you are a wife, comfort your husband. If you are a mother, be a great mother. follow the example of all these people we talked about. I can talk about Maria, I can talk about Fatima delana how she was a wife, a lover how she was a daughter.

00:52:23--> 00:52:25

She was such a noble daughter.

00:52:26--> 00:52:32

My brothers and sisters, that she was married off to a very poor Sahabi

00:52:33--> 00:52:35

Ali was one of the poorest

00:52:37--> 00:52:43

when Fatima was married off to Ali, she did not complain.

00:52:44--> 00:52:55

She did not complain. All of the sisters who are listening to me right now, when you ask your fathers for all the lavish things, or when you ask your husbands

00:53:00--> 00:53:03

for all those lavish things, listen to these examples.

00:53:04--> 00:53:10

When Fatima was sent to the house of alley after nigga, you know what was there? One mat,

00:53:12--> 00:53:26

a mat not like your carpet on the floor. No. It was a mat made of palm leaf, hard mat and a pillow stuffed with grass, a leather pillow stuffed with grass and a pot for water.

00:53:28--> 00:53:29

That's it.

00:53:30--> 00:53:50

That's all the house of alley contained. And the prophet who willingly sent his daughter to that house marry her off to Alabama mythology even though the Prophet could marry her to the richest of companions. Among his companions, there were many there were many who would be happily willing to marry Fatima

00:53:54--> 00:53:55

but he gave it to Ali.

00:53:57--> 00:54:07

And then because of this poverty, Fatima de la grind would grind corn with her own hands and they would be blisters blisters in her hands.

00:54:09--> 00:54:10

She would carry water.

00:54:14--> 00:54:43

In those containers you know made of leather. I don't know if you've seen them. Those who come from Pakistan. They have seen them they call mosquito. In our language. They're called mosquito. Right. They are made of skin and it is filled with water. This is what they use at the time, he would carry that and they would be marks on her neck. They were marks on her neck for carrying water. And she would be brushing her house cleaning the house and the dust would fall off. This is the Princess of Islam.

00:54:44--> 00:54:49

Better than all the princesses who lived in the entire history of Islam and beyond.

00:54:50--> 00:54:59

And then when Ali saw the condition of his wife, he said to her, go to your father and request a servant. He is the Messenger of Allah

00:55:00--> 00:55:07

Law, he can easily give you a servant. Fatima was not willing to do that. But she because Ali insisted

00:55:08--> 00:55:16

she went when she went she saw many people around the Prophet salallahu Salam. So she was a very shy person radi Allahu Allah.

00:55:19--> 00:55:20

She turned around

00:55:21--> 00:55:22

and she went back.

00:55:24--> 00:55:31

She made her way back. The prophet SAW her come and go. So the prophet SAW someone came to her house and asked her,

00:55:33--> 00:55:45

you know, the prophet loved her so much sallallahu wasallam that every time he came back from an expedition, or Battle of any utterly Medina for some reason, the first place he would go to

00:55:46--> 00:56:30

sal Allahu alayhi, salaam when he would return to the city of Medina, straight to his daughter's house. Once he came back, Fatima opened the door, and she saw the prophet and she started to cry like a child. Because the state of the prophets, Allah Salam was so weak, the prophet was so weakened by the fatigue of journey and all of the, all of these these explanations and defending of his community. The difficulty the kuffaar have put him through. She cried. And the professor salon comforted her, he comforted her. So he went to her house and he asked her, why did you come my my daughter, she said, that Ali spoke to her to the Prophet, she didn't speak. And he spoke and he

00:56:30--> 00:56:36

said, jasola, she is working like this in the house. And this is her condition, gave her a servant.

00:56:37--> 00:56:42

And then the Prophet turned to her. He said, Fatima, I remind you of Allah.

00:56:44--> 00:56:48

And I remind you of the status of our family. We are examples.

00:56:50--> 00:56:55

And I advise you to say the name of Allah 33 times.

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

Yani Alhamdulillah, Subhana Allah.

00:57:00--> 00:57:03

Just be in some hate, okay.

00:57:05--> 00:57:07

And then the queer 33 times.

00:57:09--> 00:57:24

Allah messenger gave these uscar to his daughter, and he said, remember Allah, and Allah will suffice you, no servant. No servant, even though he could give her a servant, no servant. So what did she say? Allah and His messenger is enough for me.

00:57:26--> 00:58:06

And she started to do that just be that can be random. Hey, so Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was like this with his family. And he raised examples like this, I shared the Aloha. Now it comes to another issue now. Now you may be thinking the women in Islam they only have to be housewives supporters. instigators, or, you know, competence? No, no. There is another example. When the need comes, you become a leader. When the time comes for you to take the lead, if your husband falls on the bed, he is afflicted by a disease.

00:58:07--> 00:58:34

Don't sit next to him and cry like a baby. Don't think that he will now die. You go and support the family. However you do it. Allah has put the responsibility on you. Where am I getting this from? From Islam, example of Sharia law. When the Prophet pastor of a salatu salam, because she was the youngest of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam prophet married her. When she was nine.

00:58:35--> 00:58:38

She was nine when the professor Ursula married her

00:58:40--> 00:59:23

the betrothal or the Act, the niqab took place when she was six, and the Prophet waited for her. And the family of Isaiah waited for her to reach the puberty, the age of puberty, the womanhood in those societies, when a girl would reach puberty, she would be ready for marriage class, they would not like the the modern societies where there is an age of consent. No, they age was when a girl reaches maturity. maturity to them was two things menstruation, menstrual cycles, and physical ability. physical ability when a woman starts to show signs a woman or Danny, you know what that means. In the case of girls, when they start to show signs of womanhood, when they become bigger physically,

00:59:24--> 00:59:56

then they are ready for marriage to them. So they married her. And one of the wisdoms behind this marriage. She was very young. memory was impeccable. And everything single thing the Prophet did in front of her and said she memorized it. So after the progress of Islam passed away, she took the mustard what is the Muslim, the Muslim is the teaching seat. So as Harvard Law School in droves, they came to her when they have an issue about hosel about Voodoo about anything private, or public.

00:59:57--> 00:59:59

There is no doubt Ayesha made mistakes. Not

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

Even in teaching, because she went she had opinions about the prophets public life which she was not aware of mostly because that was known to the Saba men. But there were certain things only she knew about the prophets life. They were private things. How the Prophet stayed at home, what he did at night, how he prayed, salatu salam, how he made Voodoo how he made a whistle. Right salatu salam. So I showed the law on how single handedly reported over 2000 reports. Allah believe 20% of Islam or the understanding of Islam comes from I shall have the alarm or 20% if not more, at least 20% of Islam comes from eyeshadow de la vanha Allahu Akbar. So what do we learn from this example my

01:00:49--> 01:01:42

sister's role of sisters in Islam. Right? She was a teacher. First of all, she was an avid learner, she learned your role is not only kitchen, your know your role is not only brushing the house and cleaning the house and cooking your responsibility is to learn also thiruvalla Elm, Florida can Allah cola Muslim and men should not prevent the wives from learning. You should not keep your wives, your daughters, your sisters Jah, Hell, no. It goes against you. It works against you. You should educate them on Islam, facilitate education for them. Sisters There are many ways to learn. You don't have to go to the Medina university or to Makkah university or even to London to study you

01:01:42--> 01:01:51

can now Allah Alhamdulillah social media or Internet has made life very easy. You can do courses at home, you can listen to lectures at home,

01:01:52--> 01:01:56

you can do while I have bachelor's and master's sitting in your bedroom

01:01:57--> 01:02:03

you can do degrees. So nothing there is no excuse for you to for you not to learn.

01:02:04--> 01:02:33

So learn. follow the example of Ayesha and then teach do Holocaust circles will lie when you start to do it. A lot put so much Baraka in the work of women. You cannot imagine there is an example called Dr. Farhat Hashmi, Dr. Farhat Hashmi. She is single handedly responsible for creating a revolution in Pakistan primarily, and then a global revolution or to speaking women

01:02:34--> 01:02:50

around the world. She has institutions around the world now. And she is not a very charismatic motivational speaker are nothing special, like you know, a llama Asana like the hero or someone like she is not a

01:02:51--> 01:03:03

diva. She is a very softly spoken person. If you listen to her lectures, you know, but she started from a living room teaching just doing the free classes, simple free classes.

01:03:07--> 01:03:29

And from her living room, her revolution, silent revolution, peaceful revolution became so big that her institution became one of the biggest institutions in Pakistan, teaching what simple the feel of the Quran. And he changed women who would consider hijab an insult

01:03:31--> 01:03:36

they were so so called modernized. That's not modernization by the way.

01:03:39--> 01:04:20

They consider a job some of them you know, some of these Pakistani women you because if you hang around in the higher circles in Pakistan, you know some of the business wives of businessmen, generals, or people high up in the society or politicians when you look at them, a lot of them they want to be modern, in inverted commas. Modern, you know, the thing being modern is being westernized. A lot of them they think Islam is backward. We don't need to adopt Islam. Dr. Forrest Hashmi, alone change their perceptions. Many of these generals and businessmen and the list goes on their wives. They changed and they went back and they change their husbands and the children. She's

01:04:20--> 01:04:22

sparked revolution silently in Pakistan.

01:04:24--> 01:04:59

You can do that. Start with your living rooms do Holocaust. And don't be hypocrites. Tell your sisters to be properly Islamic. You know, I know sisters who go to these Holocaust. And when it comes to their daily living, they are backbiting they're making lives of their relatives difficult. They are doing all kinds of haram things when it comes to you know making their husbands lives. They don't apply Islamic morality on themselves. They don't actually practice the values when it comes to practicing these values in their lives. They're not Noble. They go to Holocaust they listen to scholars they listen to Alomar

01:05:00--> 01:05:02

And when it comes to practicing, they failed.

01:05:04--> 01:05:41

They don't teach the children. They're not upright. They don't actually take Islam seriously. That's why they don't benefit. So the example of Ayesha, I will go a step further now, role of Muslim women in our Muslim societies, starting from home, going up to knowledge, and now even getting politically involved, politically involved, nothing is stopping you get involved in politics. Nothing is stopping you. I know some brothers will say what are you trying to do? You're trying to cause our women to leave leave home and, and go and become prime ministers and ministers? Yes. Yes. That's what I'm saying.

01:05:42--> 01:05:44

If this helps Islam, jaquan

01:05:46--> 01:06:01

look at that one woman in America, she has caused a big problem for that racist establishment. You know, the sister I'm talking about? We don't agree with everything she says or does. We don't agree with everything. You don't have to be following her step by step letter by letter. No.

01:06:02--> 01:06:22

She's doing many things wrong. But there are many things she's doing. Good, right. So we praise the good, and we pray for her that Allah forgives her wrong. We don't wash her drowned, we don't put her down the drain rage, we the Muslims. The problem with us, unfortunately, is with brothers and sisters.

01:06:23--> 01:06:27

One of the biggest problems we have is we will see a person

01:06:28--> 01:06:31

who does a lot of good or she does a lot of good.

01:06:33--> 01:06:35

And then he or she will make one mistake.

01:06:37--> 01:06:43

Maybe big mistake, maybe a big mistake, what we will do is we will completely disown that person.

01:06:44--> 01:06:49

We will completely write off that person. You don't do that to your cars do you?

01:06:52--> 01:06:55

If you have a crush, if the bumper gets damaged,

01:06:57--> 01:07:11

your car is nice inside the seats that clean the car is clean. The funk is functioning properly. Do you say okay, this car is now destroyed because throw it away? Do you send it to the scrap yard? Do you? Mashallah then you brains work?

01:07:12--> 01:07:20

Yes. You don't think of principles then do you? But when it comes to Muslims, who have more rights over you than your car?

01:07:22--> 01:07:29

Muslims, right, what happens? someone makes a small mistake. Alas, finished. Don't listen to him.

01:07:31--> 01:07:35

He's finished. Boy caught him. Throw him in the bed.

01:07:37--> 01:07:43

And that person might have written books. He might have served Islam, he might have given sacrifices, even blood.

01:07:45--> 01:07:52

What happens you throw him in the drain. Unless he's a Chopin. If Assam shaitan who is an enemy open enemy to Islam.

01:07:54--> 01:08:03

And he's doing open sherek or something like this, then of course, it's a different story. I am talking about scholars, the art,

01:08:04--> 01:08:09

brothers, sisters who make mistakes, all of us could look on. The professor someone said

01:08:10--> 01:08:12

khulumani Adam hapa.

01:08:13--> 01:08:16

All of you are sinners, every single one of you.

01:08:17--> 01:08:22

Every single one of you could lose money out of power. Pharaoh Fatah in

01:08:24--> 01:08:35

the best of the ones who make mistakes or the ones who sin are the repentance, the ones who repent. So all of you make mistakes. You're not perfect. None of you. So

01:08:38--> 01:08:40

this sister in America and permit me to offer her.

01:08:42--> 01:08:49

She's fighting for the rights of not only the Muslims, for everyone, this is the kind of noble character we want.

01:08:50--> 01:09:08

Omar Suleiman one of the brothers in America when he went and he did a speech in front of Obama and all these, I don't know if you have seen this. Has anyone seen this? He got so much hate for Muslims? How can you go and stand in front of them and do the speech and none of that? What did he say?

01:09:09--> 01:09:10

What did you say in the speech?

01:09:12--> 01:09:20

Would you rather have a sheet on standing there talking things attorney things? Or would you rather have any man standing there saying good things to them?

01:09:21--> 01:09:30

What do you say to? Did you say Trump well done? Did you say Obama well done? No, he didn't say any of that. He was simply telling them what Islam is.

01:09:31--> 01:09:32

Right.

01:09:33--> 01:09:36

So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam advised wherever you are, speak the Huck

01:09:38--> 01:10:00

of jihad, Kalamata hockin and the Sultan and Jaya This doesn't mean rebellion. This doesn't mean Guru Ji. It means speaking the Huck in due manner, the best of ways with Heckman with wisdom, advice, with beauty with love with compassion, and people may change. You never know the biggest enemies of Islam because

01:10:00--> 01:10:39

may become the biggest friends of Islam. Right? So we should have this attitude. So my sisters, you can get involved, support your husbands come out with the permission of your fathers and your husbands not without permission it is haram. It is haram convince your husbands and your fathers and do it in the hallway. work within the sisters work within the sisters groups and lobby in the hallway I am saying halaal not haram Haram is not an option for Muslims, whatever you deem halal, according to the advice of the allama you follow,

01:10:41--> 01:10:43

do that. harangue?

01:10:44--> 01:11:00

Whether it is in politics or other matters is not an option for Muslims. So don't assume that I'm asking you to get involved in haram things or do things that way? No. You know what Haram is? And you know what halaal is?

01:11:01--> 01:11:02

And abstain from

01:11:04--> 01:11:08

you know, things that are mocha shabby, hot, doubtful matters.

01:11:10--> 01:11:20

And halaal obion. One haram obion halaal. And Haram is clear. So this is what I'm talking about. Now, where do I get this wrong? Where Where do I get this wrong?

01:11:22--> 01:11:22

Ayesha.

01:11:24--> 01:11:43

When the need came, when it was necessary, she led an army wrongly so we believe she was mistaken. We believe she was mistaken. Because Ali was upon the Huck alira the love and was upon the heart. This is the milk of,

01:11:44--> 01:12:03

of alesana. To Gemma, we believe this. But she led the community she led she came out for justice. She asked for justice. This is why our sisters, I advise my brothers not to prevent the sisters if they want to be part of a halaal political movement.

01:12:04--> 01:12:21

And I'm not asking you to be politicians will become politic, political, or start falling following one of these groups. We don't agree with the politics like for example, a quantum muslimeen and all these people I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about whatever your allama

01:12:22--> 01:12:55

the valid orthodox allama, the 100 Hadees, Allah allow you to do, the sisters must seek they must seek the advice. What can we do? And if the Allah advise you to do certain things, within certain parameters, then follow the Allah ma your Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Ma, I'm talking about them. Right? There are options for us. And we must follow those options, which we shouldn't be negative all the time. So now my advice to general Muslim Muslims generally is that it is no

01:12:56--> 01:13:25

that we have no option but to be active. In Britain. We have no value politically speaking. We are completely devalued by the politicians by the newspapers, by the Institute. And voila, I was so encouraged yesterday, I attended my graduation ceremony. So as a School of Oriental and African Studies, I got my master's degree officially yesterday Alhamdulillah in history, and I was so happy, you know why?

01:13:26--> 01:13:33

over 70% of the graduates among the bachelors, the masters and PhDs, you know, who there were

01:13:35--> 01:13:36

Muslims,

01:13:37--> 01:13:51

Muslims hamdulillah I was always very happy, that 100 law, something's happening, and we are lucky give these youngsters the strength to lead the community in this country, in particular and globally in general.

01:13:52--> 01:13:56

And majority of these graduates were sisters.

01:13:58--> 01:14:01

Over 50% of these graduates who are Muslims,

01:14:02--> 01:14:23

who made the 70% of the total over 50% of sisters, hijabi sisters, many of them Somalis Bengali is Moroccans, Pakistanis, Allahu Akbar. This should encourage us, they should become leaders within the limits of course again to emphasize the point within the limits defined by your Allah.

01:14:24--> 01:14:39

Remember that in excitement you cannot cross limits, you cannot become a problem. Instead of being a solution, follow the anama and follow your men. Follow your men are rajala comunale NASA, this is the Quran.

01:14:40--> 01:14:49

Do not put the Quran behind you don't become the leaders of your men. No. Men are your leader or reggiano comun Allah nissa Surah Nisa

01:14:50--> 01:14:59

This is what Allah tells you. Men are protectors and maintainers of women so follow your men with their supervision with their advice, follow them, but big

01:15:00--> 01:15:08

active, be active and be active globally. My sisters and my brothers, you know, sectarianism, sometimes it

01:15:09--> 01:15:15

It causes rust in our brains, our brain, our brains become rusty, we, you know,

01:15:17--> 01:15:57

the process of thinking is compromised. You know, there are so many projects we can do globally because I traveled globally, my vision may be slightly different to yours. Those brothers who live locally they come to the mosque locally, their problems are what those who are involved in the machine, the tap is not working, the carpet is ripped, the fan is not working. The lights are good. Those brothers are taking care of the machine. It's their job to take care of the machine, right? I'm not saying it's a bad thing. But because you are involved locally, and you're so focused on the mosque, you're not thinking what the mosques purpose is, in the grand scheme of things. What is the

01:15:57--> 01:16:14

purpose of the masjid The purpose of the masjid is to make this world a better place. If you start to actually realize the importance of the purpose of your Masjid. You can become global leaders. You can send teams out to go and do something about poverty in Africa.

01:16:16--> 01:16:21

about child abuse in South America about drug abuse in Brazil.

01:16:22--> 01:16:30

about something who's gonna What did Allah tell us in the Quran? final point and I'm finishing because I've gone on for too long.

01:16:32--> 01:16:38

This is general advice to Muslims having spoken to the sisters directly. What is the law tell us in the Quran?

01:16:39--> 01:16:42

Why did Allah send the prophets Allah subhana wa salam

01:16:43--> 01:16:47

ala Muhammad Allah Allah mean, does that mean only 100 Hadees

01:16:49--> 01:16:54

was the professor of Southern sent as a mercy only for the Hades brothers now

01:16:56--> 01:17:11

is only is our mercy only confined to the Hades. Now, this mercy extends to the deobandis to the Bradys, to the Shias, even to qadiani is mercy, have mercy on them? What do I mean by them? Give them down with love.

01:17:13--> 01:17:30

Invite them to Islam Do you want to go to do you want to send them to jahannam if you want to send them to jahannam Go and tell them Mirza died in the toilet. He died in crap. Therefore, you all you know, people talk like that right? When you insult people, do you think they're going to come to Islam?

01:17:31--> 01:17:32

Allah tells us in the Quran.

01:17:33--> 01:17:52

Is it our obligation to give Dawa to qadiani is it or not? Yes or no? Yes. Is it our obligation? It is for the foreigners to give the power to all the people who we deem misguided? Yes, yes. What is the law tell us in the Quran? How to call people.

01:17:53--> 01:17:56

Although Allah Sabina Arabic will hekman

01:17:58--> 01:18:08

como el Hashanah, wa jal, homebuilder te acen hekman alchol Manasa. Phil, Phil Manasa Phil McConnell Manasa

01:18:09--> 01:18:11

the right word in the right place at the right time.

01:18:12--> 01:18:29

So right words, choose the words carefully when you give da da is calling people to Islam calling them to Allah not to push them away. People think Tao is insulting, cursing, using abusive language No. So likewise, we need to extend this mercy now it doesn't stop there.

01:18:30--> 01:18:39

Go out the mercy also extends to non Muslims. They are part of the Al Amin. Amin is anything other than a law according to the Mufasa re

01:18:40--> 01:19:04

al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. When Allah says in the Quran, Allah amin means anything other than Allah. Anything other than a lie is created is all created. Right? It's al Amin. So elephants in Africa being killed by poachers. Every single day, you may be thinking, this is the first time we're hearing these things in the mosquito, right? Yes, about elephant rights.

01:19:05--> 01:19:36

Have you ever heard any, any any of our imams? Are you talking about this? Because the vision is limited unfortunately, they're not thinking globally. They're thinking local. They're thinking about their little books, pamphlets and you know 100 Allah, Masha Allah, may Allah bless them. I'm not saying all of them are like this one majority are like this. How do I know majority are like this, because these are the people who influence communities and the communities follow them, and then they remain confined within the affairs. Elephants are the part of alameen

01:19:37--> 01:19:53

So the biggest manifestation of Allah's mercy, which was promised in the Quran, are the Muslims. We are the manifestation. We are supposed to be that manifestation of the mercy of Allah. That's the case. We need to campaign about the elephants who are being killed by the minute.

01:19:55--> 01:19:59

Every day, there are elephants being killed for what you know why. For what

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

tusks

01:20:03--> 01:20:10

and who is campaigning for Elephants? Who is campaigning who is on the front? non Muslims

01:20:11--> 01:20:15

predominantly white non Muslims? Where are the Muslims?

01:20:17--> 01:20:19

Where are the Muslims?

01:20:20--> 01:20:22

They don't consider elephants to be part of the mercy of Allah

01:20:24--> 01:20:36

or other animals. Who is going to protect the trees deforestation. deforestation is one of the biggest problems we are facing in the world. We are the Muslims. Where is Muslim representation?

01:20:38--> 01:20:52

Why is deforestation an Islamic problem? Tell me why. Very quickly you will last point to finish. Why is de force and this is advice for the sisters as well. Sisters if you can't see the brothers thinking like this, you start thinking like this.

01:20:54--> 01:20:56

Some of some of you may be thinking but we live in the north.

01:20:58--> 01:21:18

You know that means we live No, we can't do much we live in the north. We are from Blackburn. We are from Bolton, we are from Bradford We are from Leeds Halifax. We are small. No you're not. You're thinking is more. The area the house. The community doesn't make you small. It's your thinking that makes you small.

01:21:20--> 01:21:28

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. It is your mind that makes you what you become in life. If you want to become great, start thinking big.

01:21:31--> 01:22:06

If you don't try I'll give you an example today. If you don't think big, if you follow the crowd, you will remain with the crowd. Today I boarded the train from London this morning. The train was packed, completely packed and the journey three hours I'm thinking I'm gonna stand all the way. Three hours I'm gonna go and then every time I'm trying to go into find a seat into the Andhra people standing I can say Oh, good luck. Good luck finding a seat. Good luck finding a seat. Don't mean there's no seat. There's no space. Everyone still does. I kept walking. I kept walking. I kept going. I said, Thank you for the good luck. Thank you for the good luck. People are telling me good

01:22:06--> 01:22:42

luck. Good luck. Good luck finding because they they are discouraging me right. Don't go forward. There's no point there's no seat. And then what happens? I come across a seat. A lady had put her luggage. He was sitting on the seat and she had put her luggage on the seat. I said that seat is so people. She's no problem taken. And I took it and I sat down. If I listen to the others, and remained four boxes behind, I would be sleeping right now in front of you because I would be so tired. Yes. So do not follow the crowd especially when you know what you're doing is noble and right.

01:22:43--> 01:22:56

Always think big and Allah will do big things by you for life. So all these problems in the world, deforestation is an Islamic issue. Why? What did the Prophet say some lasala anyone who plants a tree?

01:22:57--> 01:22:58

What is the return?

01:23:00--> 01:23:14

Allah will give you a tree in general Allahu Akbar, and other Hadees Look how the Prophet is teaching you about modern issues. How did the Prophet know that this problem will become a big problem it will threaten our survival on the planet.

01:23:15--> 01:23:19

A football pitch is being shaved every day in Amazon jungle.

01:23:21--> 01:23:29

Every day our planet is threatened by deforestation. Muslims don't even know about it. Muslim imams are not talking about a Muslim leaders are not talking about it.

01:23:32--> 01:23:43

Only one person is talking about it recently Imran Khan, the Prime Minister, although it's general I mean, a lot of people call him these lazy, he's ignorant about Islam and all that and, but he's something something good.

01:23:44--> 01:24:22

And he ran this campaign he planted a billion trees in in KPK. province of Pakistan. Good, that's good. This is what Muslims are supposed to be doing. We should be running campaigns in Amazon, we should be there. We the Muslims are for forestation. We are against climate change, we are against animal abuse, we are against animal poaching, that are the DA and the world would wait hold on these Muslims are actually intelligent, they are actually representation of that mercy, which we talk about all the time. They are a mercy for this planet. They do represent everyone they do represent the truth and the Huck and the right everywhere. They are noble. They are a noble people. They are

01:24:22--> 01:24:51

not terrorists. They're not blowing up buses only. They're not you know, they are a noble people. When there are there is enough positive representation around the world. The non Muslims will not believe the propaganda against Islamophobia on the media. So I hope I've spoken enough on many issues. There are many issues. These are some tips, some ideas, think big. think outside of the box. Don't think that you are living in Blackburn and you can't read or think and you're limited now. You're limited by your brain. You're thinking

01:24:54--> 01:24:58

look at the Sahaba Allahu Akbar Do you think you you you have less than them

01:24:59--> 01:24:59

so

01:25:00--> 01:25:16

Sahaba some of them they didn't know what was beyond the city. All they knew was that goat and the camel and the palm tree that's all and a lot has them. Who Allah, Allah Allah, Xena mahnomen come to Salt Lake

01:25:18--> 01:25:56

Como esta la banda de Anima macabre him it is a promise of Allah to those who believe among you that you will inherit the land the earth you will inherit the planet so Allah expanded division hold on who will take the earth? We, the goat herders, the camel herders, the poorest people in the world. So this is why brothers I want you to think big you read the Quran How can you think small, you read the Quran, the Quran is your book, which opens the minds of people if the Quran is not opening the lock of your brain, then there is something wrong with your reading of the Quran.

01:25:58--> 01:26:00

You're not reading the Quran like the Sahaba were?

01:26:02--> 01:26:04

You're reading over chanting for Rukia

01:26:06--> 01:26:40

have a 110 or 30 rewards This is all you reading for? May Allah subhanaw taala fix our affairs. Whether or not Allah allow us to learn from our history and from the noble people who live before us. Sisters, I hope you didn't take any offense from my words. My purpose was purely to give advice instead advice and well last minute Allah bless you May Allah give you the strength and the ability to become those noble women we become like them. We talked about our hero Donna and is handled in Laravel alameen wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Do we take any questions?

01:26:42--> 01:26:43

Yes, please. Go ahead.

01:26:51--> 01:26:52

Everybody else?

01:26:54--> 01:26:55

In the non believers

01:27:01--> 01:27:02

in that regard.

01:27:14--> 01:27:18

They are fighting each other? Yes, that's a good impression. Sorry, bad impression.

01:27:20--> 01:27:24

I agree with you 100%. There are certain individuals who

01:27:25--> 01:27:53

instead of doing dow, they do counter dow, unfortunately. So there are people like that in places like speaker's corner. But then the solution is to have good sensible people there who can actually present a sensible face of Islam, where people can see that hold on, there is that side, but there is also that the other side, like we have ISIS, for example, we have these people blowing up buses and trains and doing all those things. But if we have good representation of Islam, or humanitarian

01:27:55--> 01:28:42

side of Islam, where we are leading the world, in humanitarian causes, in good causes, whether it's doctors, Muslim doctors, or Muslim philanthropists, or Muslim activists for animal rights or against deforestation, and climate change, and drug abuse or child abuse in Brazil, places like that, go go out go buy you you have British passports, Allah will question you on the Day of Judgment for these passports. So, once we have good representation, we can show that hold on, there are idiots among us no doubt, but there are those who are responsible. So we need to have that voice. Of course, as you know, controversy sells. But Alhamdulillah there are good examples there in the same place because

01:28:42--> 01:29:23

corner where people are very sensible, they are upright, the behavior is good. And we all always have the struggle. Unfortunately, the struggle has been there forever. where Muslims have some elements who who are troublemakers, but others. Those who really seek truth, they can see through the the they can see the contrast. They can see the difference between the two groups. So we continue the good and leave the rest of Allah shala Okay, I think there are no more. There are no more questions. I'll stop here and I'll go and have some food. I'm very hungry. So panagia llama will be home they're gonna shut on lai lai LA and NuSTAR federal governor toliko Salam aleikum wa

01:29:23--> 01:29:23

rahmatullah.
