In our last week's codes where we narrated a Hadith from a Sahabi, who had accepted Islam 40 days before the death of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

This particular Sahabi it was mentioned about him that the way he came to Islam is he heard about Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 's mission, and he heard about Prophet sallallahu Sallam coming to Medina. So he was from Yemen. He was from the people of Yemen. And some of them will recall and some of the historian they said that he was right at the border where either he was in from hijas, which is all the way to an Iran today, or he was part of Yemen. In any case, he was from the southern part of the Arabian Peninsula.

00:00:56 --> 00:01:11

He heard about Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he gathered a group of tried people and he said, let's go and meet Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and accept Islam. So he mentioned that I was on my route and I entered Medina.

00:01:12 --> 00:01:38

For love is to her law. I prepared myself for Joomla gonna Yeomans Joomla Kobe el hijo told me that it was the day of Friday and it was very close to hygiene with IE profitable salon was about to embark on hija Luigia. It is mentioned that he embarked on digital media on the 36th day or something like that. So it was few days before had chatted with her. At that particular time. He mentioned lemma dehulled to fill masjid

00:01:39 --> 00:01:40

for our jet

00:01:41 --> 00:01:50

or your new nurse with Zakon Elaine, I entered the masjid and I saw every single Sahabi in the masjid, gazing at me

00:01:52 --> 00:01:55

for budget to finish See, so I found something in my heart. I'm like what happened?

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

But he was a smart person. But he quietly sat down

00:02:02 --> 00:02:04

and he asked the person next to him.

00:02:06 --> 00:02:41

held there Karani Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Did he mention anything about me? Like it was as soon as I entered, everyone turned towards me, I noticed the Sahaba when Rasulullah sallallahu sallam was talking, it was mentioned that they would have full attention towards Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, they would not left look left right and center full other respects to Prophet sallallahu Sallam and likewise was the case with other you know me remote meeting and people that took over. So this was the but today who Mahana for the day went against the other because Rasul Allah is talking and they're all looking at the door. So this hobby

00:02:43 --> 00:03:07

this hobby, he asks another hobby held the Quranic prophecies that I mentioned. He said, Yes, that caraka will hire. He mentioned you in good. He said, What did he say? Now in this particular narration, there are multiple narrations about it, and I'll mention all of them. So we understand the greatness of the sahabi he said and he mentioned that Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said

00:03:08 --> 00:03:12

yet Holloman had Al Bab Raju loon mean of

00:03:13 --> 00:03:50

Yemen from this door a person is going to enter he is the best of the people of Yemen. In another nation had mentioned that yet. Holloman had Al Bab Raju loon. What jus watch will Malik the person who's going to enter his face is the face of King and other nation had mentioned yet Holloman had Al Bab Raju Loon, Isla what G he must have told malloc that a person is going to enter in on his face as if an angel has touched him and another nation and mentions yet Hello mean handled Bab Raju lon what Joe who can malloc that his face is like an angel.

00:03:52 --> 00:04:10

So obviously imagine when Rasul Allah is mentioning all of that just hovers they're very intrigued like who is this person and we have no idea who it is. So he enters and after that he goes to us will allah sallallahu wasallam and he says yeah rasool Allah prophets instead of asking him, yeah, JD Ibn wa de la

00:04:11 --> 00:04:25

magia a bit what brought you here? He said jet to Allah and Oba yoke. Rasool Allah I came here so that I can give back to you. I can give my allegiance I can do that I can pledge my allegiance to you and accept Islam.

00:04:26 --> 00:04:32

At this point Rasul allah sallallahu sallam, as he would take bite out from other people, you know, Uber, you

00:04:34 --> 00:04:59

usually Kabila that I take allegiance from you that you did not choose, share one time with Allah and you should worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and Toki masala that you should establish our two second you should give zakat that was the general by other Rasulullah we did but in his particular but yeah, there is one particular thing that is additional that is not found in any other pledge allegiance oats that are Sula took with others habits, which is oneness Haley Cooley most

00:05:00 --> 00:05:12

limb that every Muslim that you find Oh God, and if you find an opportunity to give earnestly how to them and advice to them, then every Muslim that you meet and they are worthy or need of advice, give advice to them.

00:05:14 --> 00:06:05

So God didn't know Abdullah he used to live his life with this advice this last portion and it is mentioned that once Ken and the who he had a slave father said, Hey, let's talk so he sent him to zhu li yesterday Allahu Farah Son so that he may buy a horse a stallion for Jedi Reuben Abdullah. So Maharaja comes back. First Jedi robe. No Abdullah loved he asked the slave become Mr. Right? How much did you buy this? He said history to be Alabamians dyrham. And another nation it mentions Dena alcohol. I bought it for $400 like our modern day terminology. So Jared Abdullah, he said urbania 400 had a team or two who as I said, this, the team or value of this is a lot more than 400 going

00:06:05 --> 00:06:10

get me the owner of this horse that you bought this from. So the owner comes.

00:06:11 --> 00:06:28

And he asks, How much did you sell it? Did you sell it for 400? Did he negotiate he verified that the actual price, the listed price of the horse in the market was 400. But the actual value was around 900. And another narration adventures that are about four times the value.

00:06:29 --> 00:06:34

So then Jared, and Abdullah he said, the value of this horse is not 400.

00:06:35 --> 00:06:41

It is four times the value that you sold it for. And I will pay you that four times.

00:06:42 --> 00:07:07

In other narration, when he would go into the market and he would sell something, he would sell something for $40 or 4400 or 100. And then somebody would ask, like, Would you buy this for 400? And he'll be like, honestly, I wouldn't buy it 400 I'm selling it for 100 but I will not buy it for 100 Now you can get it cheaper somewhere else. Right again, time and again when one of the Emir passed away and he was in Sham with the obey

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

one of this hobby, I think, obey the labor law or I forgot the name, but he was in Sham in battles at the time of Abu Bakr and a Sahara Amir or a leader passed away so he got up and he said to me, it'll come your Amir has passed away first of all, if you don't know who will make is still far from them. Well, yeah, de la. Amira and II don't don't get panic. There is another Emir on his way. You find Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And his time will imagine even Abdullah in these 40 days, he was able to narrate more than 100 a Hadees.

00:07:46 --> 00:07:52

Today, if you search it, even Abdullah and all that Hadees that he has narrated, it's over 100, just over 100 of Hadees that he has narrated.

00:07:54 --> 00:08:33

You'll find that when Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Maratona at one time he entered Rasul Allah as house for one he entered hustles Allah rasool Allah, Allahu Allah, He will sell his house. There was no place where he could sit because as soon Allah did not have, you know, a furnished house for other EDA who Prophet sallallahu Sallam took off his upper garment like the one you were in the Haram, that he that Farah Shala, who he put listed on the ground for jealous i Li So Jerry Dibner, Abdullah sat on it. When he sat on it, he grabbed the reader or he grabbed the cloak of Prophet sallallahu Sallam and he started kissing it. And he said, Oh of Allah, Oh prophet

00:08:33 --> 00:09:14

of Allah, La could accompany a chromic law. You have given a grant to me You have given respect to me. May Allah grant you a lot of respect. And he grabbed that clock and he kept on kissing. And this was the level of respect that I sought. Allah said, God does not dilla in Ahmedabad, humble he mentioned in Muslim, Ahmed, he says, ma Ronnie rasool Allah, so Allah allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a lot of us some of you watch he that every single time he met me in the last 40 days if he lived his life, he smiled at me. And other time he mentioned that he didn't Abdullah Maha Giovanni Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam katoon ie, modern day terminology. Whenever I requested an

00:09:14 --> 00:09:19

appointment with Rasul Allah, He never said I am busy. He always made time for him.

00:09:20 --> 00:09:34

A few days before Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his death. There was a place called Ville Hilsa I will hold isa Ville Hadassah again. There's different ZIL, Hadassah, and still hello sir was called garba Alia many Yeah,

00:09:36 --> 00:09:59

the Kaaba of Yemen. The people of Yemen, the tribe of virtually Jedi Dibner Abdullah is from the tribe of bacilli and the tribe of as we mentioned about the first Doctor Who accepted Islam. He was from the Kabbalah as in an in a hotbed that we gave over here for the tribes that were in Yemen. They did not want him to come to Medina or sorry, come to Makkah for hajj, so they had their own

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

en ville Khalifa their own GABA Alia mania for Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he came

00:10:07 --> 00:10:09

to Jerry Lipno Abdullah and he said,

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

Mr. Turi Honey, are you not gonna make me at ease by going and getting rid of this little Kalasa because you're from Yemen, you are from that area you will be able to do this. He said no harm ya rasool Allah na. So imagine Jedi ribbon Abdullah prepares 150 people

00:10:28 --> 00:10:38

and he is ready and he's about to set off and he comes to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and he describes a problem that he has. He said yeah rasool Allah

00:10:39 --> 00:11:24

in any Raju loon la Cebu to Allah Allah Hi, I'm a tall man, the height of of God Dibner Abdullah it has mentioned or Marathi Allah when he mentioned that when he used to stand the CNAME of of Jemele the hump of the camel, his head would be able to see over the hump of that camel. So you're talking about somebody seven feet seven feet to like, you know, like basketball player height, and even taller. So for this tight the problem was that he was not able to put you know, the place where you put when you ride a horse you need to put your shoes in and you put your foot in and you need to grab yourself. He wasn't able to do that. So it was not easy for him to ride a horse. So all the

00:11:24 --> 00:11:41

battles that he did, he would walk on the ground. So this one, it was really fun. We'll have a sigh it's talking about 20 days day and night and day travel on a horse or a camel. So he says y'all rasool Allah in Nila Cebu to Allah al I cannot stand I cannot be firm on a horse. I can't ride a horse.

00:11:42 --> 00:12:25

Then Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then he says, Look at Shuksan can you find somebody else that can do that? Otherwise I'm ready to go but it's really really far. And I can't ride a horse. It's like somebody saying I can't drive a car can we you know find somebody else who can drive the car. At that point I sort of lost this LM he made his fist like that. And he kind of like punched him his like not really punched him but he punched him in his chest and he said Allah Who myself bitwala Lane, what Joel who had the idea, Oh Allah, make him firm on the horse and make him from those people had the idea that the one who's guided and people attain guidance from Him. And

00:12:25 --> 00:12:31

then he goes to the Halawa riding the horse, he comes back riding the horse, he takes care of the hula

00:12:32 --> 00:12:36

Hula, hula is a really interesting thing. And we can talk about it another time because

00:12:37 --> 00:13:15

towards the end of your one of the sad Allama to Sir signs before the hour, or that there are going to be people that would be doing pilgrimage to the to this area of Valhalla, which is available today. And that description that Prophet sallallahu sallam said that it will be as if the woman they would be running like I eat their body parts will be moving with the amount of people that are going to be there like a rush of people that will be there to worship that particular area towards the end of ours, they will tell us is like you know, historical events. In any case, Prophet sallallahu sallam, when he arrives, Julian Abdullah, he comes back. He says,

00:13:16 --> 00:14:02

okay for our until for us. So what happened with you and the horse profitsystem is interested in hearing this story. Like, you know, I made the dua for you what happened? He said, Ya rasool Allah, got a knee? Well, Farah soon widen. It's as if me and the horse are one thing. Like when I sit on it, I don't even think that they're two separate things me and the horse have become one and another nation. It's mensajes ya rasool Allah, every time I get on the horse, it's as if the me it's as if me and the horse and the wind are all in one command. And I go wherever I go, I eat everything is under his command. This was Jared Nabila when he went to the Colossae, notice how how powerful he is

00:14:02 --> 00:14:49

in terms of his vision, and how amazing he was that when he arrives there, he says, Listen, there is another one of the major kings or dominions of that time or sovereignties of that time with Zulu Kalia. The king called Al Khalifa, Al Khalifa, this king was known and he was a very big King at the time in Yemen. So he goes to Al Khalifa, and he says, I want to meet the king. He goes into the I'm shortening the story. Bottom line, he recites the Quran, the king accepts Islam. And he says the king he becomes so happy on the fact that he accepted Islam for US law, but then that he freed 4000 slaves that day. Then Jedidiah Abdullah, he asked Scalia and he said let's go and meet Rasulullah

00:14:49 --> 00:15:00

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and give him this glad tiding that a major kingdom in Yemen has accepted Islam. So they are on their way back to Medina and when they arrive Medina

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

and they're about to go and meet rasool Allah SallAllahu wasallam they were given the news that are sort of Allah has passed away.

00:15:07 --> 00:15:18

So this hobby, he accepted Islam or this Tabori, he was not able to meet Rasulillah Salam and between them were few days but he accepted Rasul Allah but he was not able to see you know, sort of last and

00:15:20 --> 00:16:00

then a few things about Derrida and Abdullah and hopefully if we have another time there's a whole host of things that we can do about his time with Omar Radi Allahu and, and the stories that happened with Amara, the Allahu and during his Khilafah and Abu Bakr are really amazing. But I want to end with this, the descriptions that Sahaba has given about Jared Abdullah Abdullah, so first, Avila o'mara the Allahu, and he says, Jared, you know, Abdullah Yusuf, who have Illuma Jared who have no Abdullah is Yousef, he is in terms of his beauty, like Yusuf Ali. He said, I'm for the OMA of Muslims, for Omar Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abdullah ibn Omar the Center for Marathi.

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

Allah when he mentioned he says that there were few there was only one person other than Rasulullah Salallahu Salam in which we were able to find five major traits

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

up to the Abu Gesa done the best body

00:16:17 --> 00:16:28

at the Abu watch Han the best face ugly Abu Lee been the best perfume at the Abu theI been the best clothes

00:16:29 --> 00:16:45

were ugly Abu UCLan and he would eat the best food much tonight. Oh heavy Hill humps Abdullah bin Omar he says these five have never gathered in anyone other than Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and Jedi ribbon Iwabuchi LA

00:16:46 --> 00:16:55

when Abdullah ibn Amritpal allow us another Abdullah he heard Abdullah he hears about this he says have you do have sadness I will add the sixth

00:16:58 --> 00:17:39

Jedi you know Abdullah up to Yabu The Wild One that I II he had all the reason to be an arrogant person to be a person that has says you know mashallah I have the best clothes best body best face. All the things today that we see in our society that people hold so dearly and fill up their heads with D did not let all these amazing things reach his head and destroy his connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala at the elbow, Guan y axis AXA rotarod one that he was the most in humility, when you would find him you would find him and you would never see that this person has all of these traits. And none of that got to his head, we ask Allah subhanaw taala that he grants us the tofield

00:17:39 --> 00:18:17

to actually understand that these little you know, these are the hobbies, they were 140 I was thinking there were 140,000 Sahaba that attended the hotbar of Prophet sallallahu Sallam Ananda nation mentions 100,000 I mean, every single one of them had a story. And many of and many of those stories are mentioned in our books. But when I started researching about LGBT, Abdullah, like ever, even today, you keep coming across something new about this hobby, which I did not know till today. And these are the things that we sometimes miss when our children they are not aware of the historical evidences, they're not aware of all the amazing Sahaba and their lives and the toddler

00:18:17 --> 00:18:54

and that's where the disconnect happens. So I implore all the all the parents as well as myself and people that are here that let's try to revive the spirit of the Sahabas and the self and that was one of the reasons that we know when we mentioned mentioned the Hadith last week that we said let's take that so hobby and his narration and dwell on it so we actually understand his life. Inshallah, if we were able to do the next clip by then I will complete his story related to how you know he, he helped Abu Bakr and Omar and how there was an amazing thing he was the person who founded the mailing system, the post Canada Post, he was It was his idea that led the foundations to

00:18:54 --> 00:19:08

establishment of Canada Post not Canada Post but establishment of the mailing system and eventually Canada Post inshallah Akula Holy * that was tougher. Hola Hola. Hola, como si and Misumi infrastructural final la for me. This villa hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Milena via vida.

00:19:10 --> 00:19:45

We asked Allah subhanaw taala. And then that Allah asked, we ask Allah that He grants us the ability to understand the stories behind these amazing people that lived with prophets, Allah Salam, and during the times of tabulating and double tapping, we ask Allah that our lives are inspired and our actions are inspired by their stories and we're able to inspire ourselves and then our children. And we follow in the footsteps of these amazing people who left a mark on history. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah that Allah opens our hearts to Quran We ask Allah subhanaw taala that he connects us to Quran every single day. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to He enables every single one of us to

00:19:45 --> 00:20:00

be able to connect with the the this amazing rich heritage of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and all those habits in the scholars that came after them, so that we're able to live our lives in this difficult times in in wide clear evidences that we're able to make call

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

On Crete better decisions, in light of all these historical figures that we have all of these figures, they have gone through different challenges and our challenges are no different than their challenges maybe the circumstances of those challenges may be different. So, our hotbar from last week to carry on the story of God, Abdullah Abdullah, we had mentioned a few things for revision and then we'll carry on the story. We said that he was considered Yusuf of this ummah, Jedi robe no Abdullah he was considered to be so beautiful that the Sahaba Abdullah bin Omar Omar Abdullah, who and they used to describe him as somebody who was the use of as this use of of this OMA another

00:20:36 --> 00:20:50

story we didn't mention about his beauty last week was that once upon a time when he was making although he had taken off the top cloak, you know, the EDA kind of like what we read in the Haram he had taken that off to make wudu.

00:20:51 --> 00:21:27

And aroma, Radi Allahu, and he passed by, and he sees him and he had taken off the the law that he that so he tells him it will be Stryder UK, and he commands him it will be three UK. So just he didn't have the law. He gets scared. It's like what did I do wrong? Like it's normal to take off every day. Everyone's got their to die off. Everyone's got their shirt off. It's a normal thing everyone's doing. Why is he telling me? So obviously he quickly put on his radar. And he's like, I don't know what I did. Maybe there's a camo shirt here, I'm missing. So he goes to I'm gonna be alone. And he said, Yeah, I mean, why did you tell me to take off put on my reader. He said, Well,

00:21:27 --> 00:21:34

Allah, He, there would not be a person that would walk by and they would see your beautiful body and think that you are useful.

00:21:36 --> 00:22:09

That is how beautiful he was that Omar was afraid that he would get an evil eye just because of how beautiful he was. Another thing about his body was mentioned that his one of his sons, he had a lot of kids, one of his sons, he mentioned that the the foot size of my dad the size, like you know, the shoe size was one zero, it was this big. He said or how I lay or something approximate to the length of you know, from your tip of your fingers all the way to your elbow, elbow. So he was a really, really big man and extremely beautiful.

00:22:10 --> 00:22:48

Once upon a time, oh my god, Allahu Allah. And he was sitting in a modulus. So that tells us about his intellect. He was sitting in a modulus. And one of the hobbies he accidentally farted out loud. So obviously, the time for Salah was about to happen, and everybody heard it, and then everyone just became quiet. And obviously, nobody wants to get up because it's on the other side. So Mr. Radi Allahu Allah and he says, As them too I have I'm determined that the one who's will do break he gets up now and goes and Miko.

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

Nobody got up. There. We're all like so afraid if

00:22:54 --> 00:23:04

he said Wallahi i By swear I swear to Allah, as attempt, I am determined that the one who broke his will do get up now and leave our muchness

00:23:06 --> 00:23:49

nobody got up. So JD Dibner. Abdullah, he was sitting there. And he said, Yeah, I mean, it has him Lana, Jimmy and command all of us. So we'll all get up. And nobody would be singled out. So he said Nima Rai had, and then he commanded everyone that let's all go and make wudu and you know, preserved the privacy or the sanctity of that person in front of that much of this. It's a human thing. And then when they came back, I'm gonna do Allah and he said, how great of a leader you are, how great of a leader you were in Jaha. Leah, and how amazing Have you become in Islam, that even in Jaha, Leah, you were an amazing intellectual leader. And now even when you are a Muslim and you're amongst

00:23:49 --> 00:24:32

us amongst the leaders and ambassadors of Islam, you are so beautiful in your intellect, and amazing, then, Jedi diviner Abdullah picking up from the story if you remember, we talked about Lulu Killa. This, the king. There were two kings in Yemen, one of the kings who freed 4000 slaves last time we talked about it. So that King, he is on his way back and what happens Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam passes away and he accepted Islam to Aquila in the life of Rasulullah Salam but he was not able to become a Sahabi he was not able to see those with Allah Selim. So when Jared Hebdo Abdullah he came from Ville Hello Assad. The first story we mentioned when he goes the Kaabah of Yemen

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

destroys them comes back. Rasool Allah is very happy with him. He makes a request to it also to Allah at that time. He says that Maya Kabila Alba G Allah, they have distributed to her Rocco they have been distributed. The historical background to this is that Kabila l budget l big law was in Yemen, they all had different branches. So this was a huge papilla and they had different branches. So a branch basically means that you know, the four children of the founder of the Kabila and then they

00:25:00 --> 00:25:37

Whole families and those branches, they got into an argument. So of Kabila al big law, they distributed themselves they because of the argument they separated and they were all across the Arabian Peninsula. So he comes in asked Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam Would you allow me to? Would you help me unite the Kabila of Magilla because they've been distributed. So rasool Allah accepted his offer. And he said, before you do that, go to these two tribes will color the one we talked about, and zoo or Omar, bring them to me as Muslims and next your next mission will be that we will unite Videla Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dies, he dies and he passes away and meets

00:25:37 --> 00:26:24

rafiqul Allah and then at that point he arrives in Abu Bakr is in command. Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah is in command and he asks Abu Bakr Yeah, but yeah, I mean, I was promised by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that I will unite my Kabila. Kabila Agila helped me so I can go and unite them. Abu Bakr, Radi Allahu Allah and he gets really upset on Jedi rebel Abdullah and flips out and me he said your Kabila Bonjela is that the left Islam because they refuse to pay Zeca so they were from the island read the LEM Yajima whom Kelly Matala they were not united under La ilaha illa Illa Allah and you want me to unite them so he was really hurt

00:26:26 --> 00:27:15

and then he listened to me Nene and Abu Bakar said go with highly driven will lead towards the north to our champ and help him out on the way back he you know, did halogen what EADS army had reached around 21,000 People in Sham so they Jared Abdullah Abdullah was the ambassador and he was asked to come down and bring the hyena and the war booties back to Medina with Abu Bakr on his way back. Abu Bakr Radi Allahu and passes away. So when he arrives with all the word booty, Omar Radi Allahu Allah is in command. So the first thing he asked him Are the Allahu and Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam had promised me to unite the Kabila al Magilla or Ameerul Momineen helped me unite them. So OH MY GOD,

00:27:15 --> 00:27:20

ALLAH Juan was a smart like, he was a very like he was a political person in terms of his answers.

00:27:21 --> 00:27:22

And he says,

00:27:23 --> 00:27:49

you know, that during the time of Abu Bakar, we had agreed that the people of Florida people who refuse to pay zakat will not participate in any warfare, because we can't trust them. And they made a huge mistake, so they're not going to be part them and their children are not gonna be part of the progeny. But remember, the Alana didn't really agree with Abu Bakr his position on that.

00:27:50 --> 00:28:11

So he just kind of hinted towards him, he said, go to back to her litter bin Walid and sham and insha Allah by Allah's will. Kabila your Kabila elbow Agila shall be united, and there will be a lot of credit that would come out. So obviously he goes back and the army of

00:28:12 --> 00:28:49

highly driven Waleed increases the number, but on the same time in Iraq, the Muslims are fighting the Persians like Macron, the Modan all of these areas, they're fighting these battles. And one of the battles that the Muslims lost under the leadership from within often was not even how did he lose, they lost that battle battle of Jerusalem. A lot of Muslims passed away in that. So Amara, the Allahu Allah and sends a messenger to Jedediah and Abdullah and brings him down, calls him back from Sham from the north, and he says, Now is the time to unite your Kabira

00:28:50 --> 00:28:54

go like the bird and come back to me like a bird

00:28:55 --> 00:29:00

and bring them all together. So Jerry, Reverend Abdullah within one week

00:29:01 --> 00:29:04

he gathers to 1000s

00:29:05 --> 00:29:47

You know, people Archmage all warriors that are ready to fight within tooth 2000 within Medina within seven days, so Oh my God, Allah Han he freaked out and he was like, Yeah, Jedi contactors in humara What were you hiding them behind or what? Like, where are these 2000 people. So at that point, Jedi demagogue dilla. He mentioned the strategy that he used to to bring all of these 2000 people and he told him that what I did is I said there were only 100 People in Medina from Kabila l big law. I gathered all of them and I said, each one of you shall go to the closest person that you know of Agila outside of Medina, you're going to go and tell that person that go to the closest

00:29:47 --> 00:29:56

person they know of Medina and tell them that I'm gathering an army of the bellies, and we're going to go to Yemen and unite the whole Kabira

00:29:57 --> 00:30:00

and likewise, the whole army of

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

these 2000 people within seven days, they all united they were united. Then later on Umar Radi Allahu Allah and he used this particular technique of God rebuttal Abdullah to establish the first mailing system buried. The first mailing system where there were areas where you know, a rider was able to write for a certain distance they accumulated, they calculated that a horseman is able to ride fast in the desert x kilometers. So there should be a signpost there's somebody with the message and that's how all the messages during the time of Irma Radi Allahu and started spreading around now. Jerry grew up not judo. dilla he goes to Yemen gathers all the Yemen people from Yemen

00:30:43 --> 00:31:26

from Virginia. Well, big law brings them to Omar Radi Allahu, and at that point, Amara, the Allahu and he commands Jedi to Abdullah and he tells him that go and take your army, take the army of Vigilius and go to Muthana even Haritha because there are only 3000 Muslims left against the Persians that over there and help your brothers Musa even hadiza So Elijah the whole Kabila with Jerry Dibner, Abdullah, they arrive in Iraq. Remember the DUA that Rasul Allah made for him, when he was not able to ride the horse and he was not able to write and he was he had these difficulties because he was taught, he was not able to. So what did he say when he came back? He told prophesy

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

Salam It was as if me and the horse and the wind WAR ONE.

00:31:32 --> 00:31:43

It is mentioned in the books that Jedi Lipno Abdullah, he was able to cover the distance from Medina, all the way to write up in 12 days.

00:31:45 --> 00:32:30

Whereas an average person, they generally like in those days would take around 2728 days to cover that distance. And that was with his whole tribe. So this was the baraka of the dua of Nabi SallAllahu Sallam for Jedidiah, when Abdullah that he was able to cover all of that distance, even today, when you drive on a car from Medina, like even from Riyadh to Medina, that takes a good seven, eight hours driving, and you're driving at 140 130 140 kilometers. So imagine that how slow you know it is all those 2000 people. In any case, the whole tribe was united. And then they go, they arrive at Rock, and they help husana Even Haritha long stories, there's tons of battles that he

00:32:30 --> 00:33:07

was involved in really interesting thing then towards the end, and I just want to mention the end of his life. They won that battle Alhamdulillah and then that was the first battle that the Muslims won in the long time after the, at the hands of the Persian. And then later on, there were multiple victories because of God didn't know Abdullah he was involved in a lot of them until the time came between Ali and while we and the whole dispute that took place historically. And JD Libnah Abdullah was commanded by earlier the Allah one to go and take care of my god Allah one, there was a command. So he refused to obey that command. And he secluded himself on an island

00:33:08 --> 00:33:49

where he would just worship Allah subhanho wa taala. And he said, I want nothing to do with this dispute. Because Prophet sallallahu Sallam had commanded me when he sent me to Yemen, to invite people to Islam. Both of these parties have accepted Islam, hence, I have nothing to do with this. So he secluded himself, and it has mentioned that he died alone on that island. There were some people when he passed away, they brought his body out back into the city, and a lot of people earlier the Aloha and everybody was really sad. He died in 51, Hijiri and Rahima Hola, rahmatullah wa Sera. And again, his story is an example for every single one of us that never let your

00:33:49 --> 00:34:30

insignificance or never, never feel insignificant in front of other people. Because God did not Abdullah he enters Islam and 40 You know, 40 days before the Salah is life. And he ends up becoming the ambassador for Abu Bakr, the ambassador for Omar, the ambassador at the time of Ali, he ends up you know, and if you read his life, it is just fascinating that how somebody who just arrives and becomes the pinnacle of everything, and whereas he did not get all that Sahaba and all that time and companionship with Prophet sallallahu sallam, he didn't get to spend all of that time, you know, nurturing his Eman and many times you know, we say I'm recommitting Muslim. You know, I have

00:34:30 --> 00:35:00

committed sins and now I'm recommitting so I'm going to take it slow. I'm gonna take it no life is not gonna take it slow on you, it will end on you whenever Allah subhanaw taala has decided on that and other thing we find in the story of God Abdullah which is something really fascinating for every one of us to understand and and take away from this is that he never let like the unity of his people and that promise of Rasulullah he was you know, when Abu Bakr said no, he didn't give up with the colors no problem inshallah Matthew mashallah this will never

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

happened again. How many times we have given up on a challenge that we faced, where the person across US does not understand us? And we is like, you know, what call us as long as he doesn't understand. There's no point of me even having this conversation. Whereas him, he carried on persistently constantly thinking about it. How do we know that every time there was a power change, the first request he made is the promise of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. The first request, even the fact that he knew his tribe, his people, they had, you know, left Islam apostate it because they they denied at that time to give zakat later on the converted, and they came back, he did not feel

00:35:39 --> 00:36:15

shy defending his people in his mistakes. Right? He's like, I'm gonna bring them back. How many times we disown our own, sometimes family, our own ethnicities, you know, we are all Indians are like this, all Pakistanis are all Arab Egyptians are like this. And we say we discipline ourselves from that, just because of an action of one person or one being. And we don't realize that because a lot of harm, because we creating, you know, these prejudices unnecessarily amongst people. And that's why you have these normative prejudices that you see amongst you know, the people from this country are slow, they are fast, they are like this, they are like that. And all of these come up

00:36:15 --> 00:36:30

because we as individuals with one interaction or one bad interaction, we create a whole judgment around across the whole nation who say they are all like that, and we should never do that. And other thing that we find in the story of Jedi diviner, Abdullah and this is like a

00:36:31 --> 00:36:44

message for all of us that when Rasul Allah gave him a challenge, you know, initially, we didn't deduce it from last code, but when Rasul Allah gave him the challenge, go and do this.

00:36:46 --> 00:36:53

Go and take care of the Kalasa. Why didn't Jerry Hypno Abdullah at the onset of the command, tell rasool Allah I can write,

00:36:55 --> 00:37:11

why did he wait until he went, he gathered, the army gathered 150 people, all the army was ready, they're about to lead, and they're about to leave rasool Allah is Seeing them off. And he arrives at that moment and tell rasool Allah, I'm unable to ride a horse

00:37:12 --> 00:37:49

for Halacha, and Dr. shusun, can you look for another person. So that is the sign, you know, Zig Ziglar, he says something really good about this, he says that many times people, they attach themselves to a goal, but they don't have clarity as to how they're going to get to that goal. So what ends up happening is like, since I cannot see a clear path to that goal, I'm not going to walk at all, let's forget the goal and look for something else. And then he says, a lot of times smart people, what they do is they see that the goal is there, but they can only see the first two steps. So the walk the first two steps with this hope that when they come to the second step, inshallah

00:37:49 --> 00:38:13

Allah is going to give them the ability to see that step three and step four. Similarly, over here, you find that he did not Abdullah in this particular case, he did not let go, he said, you know, I'll do everything I can, to the best of my ability to fulfill the commander of Rasulullah. And where I come to this point where I'm incompetent to fulfill the commander of Rasulullah, then I will tell him, I'm unable to do that.

00:38:15 --> 00:38:59

How many times you know, we're told something at work, or we're told something by our parents do this. And there are so many things so that one particular thing could be 10 steps, we can do nine of those, but the 10th We can't, and we, you know, let go of all the 10 steps and he's like, you know, I can't do this at all. I've never done this before. Like, honestly, I don't know how budgets work. And those are not excuses for us. Jedi robe. No, Abdullah had never fought a battle on a horse in his life. Until that day, when rasool Allah made to offer him, he used to be Mashie, and he used to fight battles on the ground. But he gathered a whole battalion of of people, an army of horses, 100

00:38:59 --> 00:39:01

of them that were ready to fight.

00:39:02 --> 00:39:31

And then he tells rasool Allah, this is my capacity. This is out of my capacity, I'm unable to do that. So would you ask someone else to take on the mantle from here so that is a very important lesson for us that you know, let us not the greatness or the veracity of that particular goal that we're trying to achieve? Take us down focus on the little steps that we need to do to get to it and inshallah one day Allah will will we will be able to achieve those goals inshallah. Allah Cody Hadassah for Allah Hollywood are commonly cited. I mean, first off, we'll find out we'll have more
