This talk was given at the Clear Lake Islamic Center.
Some snapshots from the life of one of the great Muslims and one of the great Sahaba, and even a mythological of the line home. And
we begin, we predicate with a couple of statements. The first one is a statement of Abdullayev children of the lion who and it's a very beautiful statement, he says that whoever view is seeking to follow the path of anybody that follow the path of those who've passed away, mankind was stagnant, fairly standard women by demand, whoever view is going to follow the path of anyone follow the paths of those who have passed away, why in and hayleigh to annihilate him fits in because the one who is alive, you don't know if they're gonna pass their trials and tribulations and their tests. Many times you experience a person,
you've put your faith in them and you know, you're you're really impressed by them. And maybe even your faith depends on them. And then they fall some tests or what have you. And we've seen this many times over with many people all over the world. And so the the advice of our beloved minister, the great companion himself, he says, if you're going to follow the path of someone, follow the path of someone whose story has been concluded, someone whose final chapter has been written, someone who has passed away. Why? Because you don't know if the living are going to pass their tests, if they're going to succeed.
without a cause harm, Hamad? Who's he talking about? Well, he's a companion. So if he's talking about those who passed away, then he's talking about the companions themselves. And then he says, a number of qualities, he lists a number of qualities of the qualities of the Sahaba, but also the loss of the lightest, and why is it important for us to learn about the companions, he says Colonel will lie of the head illuma they were By Allah, the best of this oma
abajo Haku when they had the most righteous hearts, were our nakuha ailment. And they had the deepest knowledge. And this statement, the deepest knowledge, we're gonna come back to it, but it's very, very precise. I'm delighted that he didn't say that for Sahaba have the most knowledge. He didn't say, I am an admin he said, Makuhari admin they had the deepest knowledge. What that means is that any verse or any Heidi, that is a hobby learned, penetrated into their hearts and mixed with their flesh in a way that no generation after them ever experienced or even came close to. And so he says, A Makuhari men who are often they were the least superficial. They were the least superficial.
They were a people whom Allah Subhana Allah chose the kamati Dini,
but you're also in a way a comedy Dini they were people from Allah Subhana, Allah chose selected to be the companions of his messengers of the law to send them and to establish his religion. So then what are we required to do? He says, variety for the home full blown. He says, so know their virtues, know their status, and follow them in wherever you're able to have their religion and their character. Why? Then the home condo added who the most appealing they were upon clear guidance. And so this is one of the things that is our goal for tonight that we learn about the virtues of one of the great companions of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, one of the greatest companions, I didn't
even I thought, why do we do do this, the children aside the nebula cos, they said, Our father used to teach us the mahasi of Rasulullah sallallahu, as in the children of side than the grandchildren, they said, Our parents used to teach us, the seal of the Prophet, the early term for sila is mahasi, the seal of the prophets of Allah they set it up, and they used to say to us had shot afoco This is Your Honor, this is your pride. And this is the honor of your fathers, so don't lose it. don't squander it. And so a person, a person's history is their source of pride. A person's history is their source of of, of honor. And when you learn about this hobby Alon whom you become infused with
pride, because they are your forefathers, they are your and my forefathers.
I've never thought about the line home. Is it even a thought even after methodic, even Hashem the
cousin of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam his father thought he was the one who famously raised the profits little lady send them after his grandfather, Abdulmutallab passed away. So from the age of eight onwards, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was raised by authority later on about it himself, would become someone who had many children and he was not very wealthy. And so what also lost a lot to send the married idea and he became settled he took on it as
Someone that he raised to relieve obatala of some of his burdens. And so I little the law and who from a young age was raised in the house of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and at the age of 10, around the age of 10 Rasulullah sallallahu SLM becomes a prophet and a messenger, the incidence of Aquila happens and I deal with the law and who is of the earliest Muslim, some of the scholars said that he's the earliest Muslim before Khadija and before I work, nonetheless, he is definitely one of the first three, I will work hijo de la Anna, and I'd even never thought about the law anymore. And I will work with the law and who is the first male, anti digital, Yolanda is the first female and I
didn't ever thought it was the first child to accept Islam. And interestingly enough,
if you think about it, why is it that you know, the first three Muslims aren't, for example, three adult males? Why is the first Muslim?
A woman or a man or a child? Right? It's a it's a very interesting diversity of, of the society. Nonetheless, I'd even ever thought about the line who at 10 years old, he accepts Islam, and a little delight who never ever prostrated to an idol. He never worshipped an idol in his life. He was 10 when he accepted Islam, but nonetheless, he was raised in the house of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And Khadija and Rasulullah. sallallahu, obviously didn't worship idols. And so Ali grew up, not having been corrupted by this belief. He believes in Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we're going to fast forward because we're not going to spend too much time going in, you know,
much detail because there's too much that can be said about it his life, but some snapshots and so I didn't know the law and we fast forward until the prophets the lightest and limb is migrating. So 13 years have now gone by, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is migrating to Medina and the prophets the light is in places when we get some glimpses of it his character having been raised in the house of the prophets, the light s&m Alley,
sleeps in the bed of the prophet SAW the light as a bed that was expected to be ambushed by the machine again to assassinate it also will last them all my days and
and so it sleeps in that bed, and the Prophet cellulitis and then tells it that they're not going to harm you don't worry, no harm is going to come to you. But realistically, if you're told that no harm is going to come to you, but you know that this is a bed, that's got the assassins motives on it, it would be a very difficult night to sleep. Nonetheless, I live in a butalbital de la and who sacrificed himself in that night and he spent the night in the bed of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and no harm came to him that we should again they had planned, they
knew that they couldn't attack the profits on the line to send them one clan. If one clan attack the profits on the lightest and number no Hashem would fight them to the end. And so what they eventually planned was they said that we are going to have a number of strong young men from different clans all strike Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam at the same time and so the blood will then be spread throughout a number of clans and Bernal Hashem will not be able to fight everybody and so they will have to succumb to accepting blood money and will be relieved that way. Nonetheless, the prophet SAW the lightest and I'm left with a blue book, the machine again did not catch Rasulullah
saw on the lighter send them and they found that Elliott on the low end who there it would then migrate to Medina. Before he migrated however, the profits from the lightness and limb had him stay behind to distribute some of the amarnath that we're still in the house have also lost a little light a synonym, interestingly enough, and amazingly enough, even though it was a little less of a light SLM, was being called a soft head, and he was being accused of all of these different criticisms by poor Asian the slanders really not criticisms, but slanders and rumors that they were spreading about him, people were still giving Him as their money, people were still giving them
their valuables. Why because the prophet SAW the light is sent them before he was known as the Messenger of Allah, he was known as a slob that and I mean, he was known as the truthful and he was known as the trustworthy and a loss of power to Allah when it comes to the Seattle for some loss of the light. So
I've mentioned this before, but I had a, I had a British
And this British literature professor, when we would study the the great works of British literature, whether it was Wuthering Heights or Frankenstein, or one of these books, she would make us dissect the book to a level that was so frustrating. And if the if the, if the character had a father who was a butcher, she would then ask us, why do you think the author made this character's father a butcher, like out of all of the occupations, why a butcher and we would sit there and dissect these books to that level every single week or twice a week, and then one time I raised my hand
I asked the professor I said or I claimed or exclaimed to the professor and I said, maybe the author simply needed to give this character's father a profession. And so they randomly chose butcher Yeah, and why are we doing all of this analysis? Maybe they didn't even have any sort of intention. And then she said to me, she said, we have to give the great authors of literature more credit than that. She said, we have to give the great she was like, Okay, I understand that, you know, some you know, kid in high school, right, something that maybe they didn't put much, but when you're talking about the classics of literature, you know, these things that have stood the test of time and
criticism, then you have to give the author's more credit than that everything is by design and when she said that to me, I wasn't thinking about literature anymore. I was like man doesn't the foreign deserve more analysis? Doesn't the seat of the province of the licensing deserve more of that type of respect? Out of all of the names that the province of colitis and them could have had in Mecca? His name was a saw that and it I mean, and everything he could have been MKT. Right? He could have been any Jimmy, he could have been so many different things at the province level, it is lm yet, the two names that he had, were a solder to the truthful, and the trustworthy, the one who can be
trusted and so the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. You know, and and if you think about the person who's going to carry a message, then those are the two qualities that you need and if you are an oma, that is going to carry the message then you have to look at are we an oma that is considered to be trustworthy? And are we an oma that's considered to be truthful? Are we an oma that people can trust that people feel safe around that people would leave things with that people believe when they talk, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Lee distributes even as his migrating to Medina and he's flowing, they're fleeing the persecution of the Mexicans, the province of the light is is
distributing that what she was entrusted with through it. I've never thought I'd even ever thought it would migrate to Medina when he migrates to Medina, he finds that the province level lighters, send them has done this Maha between the Mahajan and the unsought he is he has drawn up this brotherhood between them hygiene in the unsought and I've never thought of it as the prophet SAW the light as animal who is my brother, and the Prophet sallallahu send them says to him, You are my brother, or I am your brother. And so I even ever thought of his brother was also lost the law to send them. And Addy when you're talking about two years later,
earlier on the line who had migrated to Medina, and he's very young, and he's not very wealthy at all. In fact, he's not wealthy at all, not not very wealthy, he's not wealthy at all. And I get it a lot when he would need money, he would go and he would gather, or he would go and he would work for a woman from the unsought. And he would go and he would irrigate some some date palm trees for her and she would then pay him in dates. And then when he would have worked enough to gain two handfuls of dates, he would say to her, I'm good, that's enough for me. And then he would leave an idea on the line. So while he's in that state of poverty,
and be happy or unnecessary reports, that 40 mile of the law is starting to get proposals by a walk, and neuroma, and also loss of the lightest, and then tells them she's too young. And so it basically then reports that I need all the law and who had a servant, and his servant is saying to him, Do you know that Fatima is getting proposals?
And he said to her Yes. Or he said to her No.
And then she says to him, Go and ask for her hand. And I didn't realize this. I don't have anything to ask her with. But she kept on insisting and insisting and insisting until earlier on the line, who finally finds himself in front of it also lost the lighters and lamb. And it said, we used to be in such awe of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he does not say a word. And the province of colitis, and limb is asking him
and he's not saying anything. And he's asking him and he's not saying anything three times he asked him and he didn't say anything. And then the profits of the lighters, enemies, that's him. Maybe you have come to ask for faulty
and so I little the law and who says yes. Right. It's super awkward. And then
he says to her, it's it. What do you have? What can you give her? And it says, I don't have anything. And the prophets the lowlights and obsessing What about the shield that I gave you? What you're not thinking when you're thinking about mahadi? You're not thinking of giving her a shield, right? And so the province of the license system, what about the shield that I gave you? And he says, Yes, I still have it. And so he says, Go and give her that. And then the province of the light is set him said to him and you must have a walima There must be something
So I don't know the law, he doesn't have anything for edema. So we're not fast forward to the Battle of the Battle of whether it happens. And this is now a little The line was first.
First Battle. This is the first time in his life where he's participating in a battle battle the Allied. And the Battle of bedeutet is a battle that was instigated by Abuja, there were lots of people in Mecca, who did not think the Battle of bedroom was a good idea. Initially, remember, it was a caravan supposed to be intercepted, of Abu Sophia, Abu sufian is able to maneuver out of the trap of the Muslims. And so he's on his way. And in fact, he sends a messenger to Mecca saying everything's good, we're fine. But Abu Jan is the one who's beating the drums of war. And he's saying, no, we're not going to come back and nobody's going back until we stay at budget for three
days and we drink wine. And our girls Sing for us so that the Arabs can then respect grace again, and people People don't want it. And I will walk up hula hub is just such a shame.
He's going and he's whispering and every and he's insulting this person. And he's maneuvering this person and manipulating this person. One of the people who did not want to participate in the Battle of he didn't want to fight was in the lobby. And ultimately, Libya is one of the leaders of polish. And Aruba is telling people until the last minute and he was someone who was writing, he was writing a red camel, he was writing a red camel, and he was telling them go back, let us go back and blame it on me. Say wrote back got scared. Even though you all know that I'm the least scared amongst you. But just blame it on me. And I will Jehan is continuing to instigate to the point where now it's
time for the battle. And now his ego kicks into overdrive. And so ends up being the person who's starting the duel, they would start the other battles with duels. And so ultimate becomes the person coming out for the he goes from the being the person who's telling them Don't fight, don't fight, don't fight to being interestingly enough, the person who's going out to challenge the Muslims to a duel, him and his brother shaybah and his son and will it so it's a family, they all come out.
And who comes out to meet them three men from the unsolved Earth maybe maybe I said, well, who are you? And they say we're from FM and they say 1000 killed on you are, you know, worthy opponents? But we want our equals from our people. We want my god we want people from Africa.
And so Rasulullah sallallahu to send them he says, Yeah, it Oh, yeah, Hamza. Oh, yeah, VEDA obey the mill Harris. And so I even thought it comes out for the duel, as well as Hamza
as well as obey them in Hadith.
And Hamza and Addie both make quick work of their opponents.
And shaybah strikes or beta in the LEC an injury that Aveda would eventually died from and so when he struck Aveda, then ID and Hamza both attacked shava. And they killed him and the Battle of whether it happened and everybody knows how bad that plays out Muslims when I'd even never thought it gets from his spoils of war as as mentioned before a Muslim he says I got an old Sheikh ammo as my spoil of war.
And so I was using it to finance my wedding. He would go and collect grass, and then he would put it on the sheet camo and then he would go and he would sell it. And so on one day
to show you the stress that comes with getting married. I don't even ever thought about the Alon who is selling his grass and he goes and he brings the camel, and he parks it at one of the houses of the unsought
and inside the house is his uncle Hamza. And Hamza are on the line who this is before alcohol had become forbidden. And so Hamza was drinking in the house. And there was a girl who was singing in the house it had left he had left the she camel, it's parked, it's fine, but it's about to get towed.
But the law is inside the house. I'm sorry Hamza is inside the house and the girl is singing. And then she says to Hamza, she says, Hamza
slaughter this camel and feed it to your guests. And she's singing this song and hams out on the line who has been drinking. And so he goes out and he slaughters the camel and he cuts off its two humps. And then he rips out its liver. And it love the Lord who comes back to his camel and he finds it dead, slaughtered humps, comes off liver and he said, I began to tear.
I began to tear from this. And so he went and he told us to build muscle. I said him about it. And then
The prophet SAW said I went and confronted him that nonetheless, I'd even never thought it. The wedding happens different Muslims had assisted, some said will support with a sheep and others said with other things and idea and everybody is able to have his wedding. And a year later he is blessed with a son.
I draw the line is blessed with a son the prophet SAW I said him his first grandson and he goes, and he
Rasulullah sallallahu s&m asks and he says, What did you name him? And I leave never thought he says, We have named him How?
And how is just like, the name that any 25 year old would love to name his son. You know why? Because then you become a will how the father of war
as is amazing, right? I will help and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he says no, his name is Asad.
And that just it shows you truly you know, people who don't notice a little less of a light a sudden and they think he's some sort of warmonger. But look at even these types of names the province of the lightest and then did not like
how? He says no, his name is that hasn't the beautiful? You know, there are some narrations that say that the next time he had a son, the province of the licen have asked him and he said What did you name him? He said How?
He said no, he said he said the little beautiful one years later he would have another son What did you name him? How?
He said no, he's in mersin the one who does beautiful things or the one who does beauty right all of these names revolving around beauty the province of Mumbai cinemas, naming his sons. I don't even ever thought about the lion who has it hasn't. And even though he's married to faulty model, the lion had the daughter of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam their life was far from luxurious. In fact, they had a similar lifestyle to the lifestyle of the prophets the light is and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not have any luxuries that were beyond anything that the most basic of the Muslims had. And I'd even never thought even forced him I had the similar lifestyle. The prophets of
the lightest synonyms lustful swastika was incredible nonetheless. Fatima on one occasion her and Id are discussing and are complaining to each other of their own difficulties. Fatima says that she has been grinding barley so much that her hands have become calloused. And even a bit Olive is carrying water so much that his back is aching. And so I need on the line who says to Fatima? Why don't you go and ask them a little less on the line and send them for a servant. and so forth. The model the line goes to ask the prophets the lightest and then for a servant and the prophets the lie to send them would never see for Ultima except that he would stand up and he would see her where he himself
saw the light as cinema sitting. Nonetheless, Fatima asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam for a servant and that also will last on the light and send them says to her, no,
I'm not going to give you and leave a Lucifer.
Now who is a Hello sofa, hello so far are basically the Muslims who do not have homes.
They are living in the masjid. And they are completely you can call it welfare you can call it they are being supported by the state. And the Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is saying to his daughter, the most beloved of the people to him, he says that I am not going to give you a resource that I cannot provide to the last member of our society.
And so she goes home. But then that night,
then that night, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam enters upon Fatima and it held the Allied home and he finds that they are laying down and so he tells them to stay where they are. And then also last a lot he said he stands in between them and Admiralty law and who says I felt the coolness of his feet. And then the prophets the lightness and upset Shall I not tell you what is better for you than a servant. That every night before you go to sleep that you say Subhana Allah 33 times at hamdulillah 33 times and Allahu Akbar 33 times that is better for you than a servant. Right. The other night they extracted from this and they said the crew la Jaco will weather that the
remembrance of Allah strengthens the body. We have a brother
who is the founder of a program or a movement called bar stars. And bar stars is like Do you ever watch these YouTube videos where these guys are in a park? Doing like these crazy pull ups? Right?
bar stars, huh? calisthenics? Yeah, so there's a specific group or organization or program or hobby they're called bar stars. And the brother who found that it is a Muslim brother, his name is hesson. But his nickname on the street is giant. Martial Law. The guy is a giant he looks like martial law. He's looked like he's chiseled out of stone.
And so he was telling us, we brought him over to the message one time and he took all the young people out and he took him to the park and you'll show me what you got and stuff like that. And he was telling them what my secret is, is that when I go up, I say to Panama,
every time he was going up on the pull up bar, it's upon Allah or it hamdulillah or Allahu Akbar, Allah, Allah, Allah or something like that. So um, so he's like, you know, when, when he was like, he was telling us he was like, When, when, when you go right or left, he said, I'm the one who invented that.
I'm the one who invented that. But what I benefited from that was this concept that the remembrance of Allah Subhana Allah really gives the person energy it gives the person strength. Now remember, at the beginning, we said, the layman was rude said that those have or not the most in knowledge, but they had the deepest knowledge, they interacted with knowledge, at a level that nobody else did. I believe me, Mr. Rude said that he said, a man or a woman they had the deepest knowledge, it may be thought it is telling us this story of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam telling him what to say when he goes to sleep. we fast forward 30 years earlier, the Lord who is narrating this, and he said
something incredibly powerful. He said, By Allah, I never went to sleep
ever without, since the prophets, the lie said and told me this without saying Subhana Allah are hamdulillah and Allah Akbar,
it's never happened. When they would learn a Hadith, it would be something that they implemented, and they implement it for the rest of their life. They have the deepest knowledge. There's always somebody who challenges the speaker, right? There's always somebody who's like, but what about.
And so one person said to it, he said, not even on the day, Josephine
is or not even on the day of Sofia, the day of Safina is the day, where the army of ID clash with the army of Medallia, it was said that more Muslims died on the day of Sophia. And then in the, in the all of the campaign's of the Muslims up until that point.
Can you just imagine because both sides were Muslim, right? We learned in history that the that the war that had the most American casualties was the Civil War. Both sides are American. And so how do you draw the line who was walking amongst the dead on the deaths of feet? And he was calling how dead? Hasn't I wish that I had died before this by 20 years? The amount of questioning in front of a lesser panel to add so many dead Muslims. And yeah, I'd have never thought I've said to that questioner, not even on the day of the feed, he said not even on the day of Sophie, even on the Josephine that night, when you went to sleep, he says to Pamela 33 times in the last 33 times in a
log but 33 times earlier on the alarm.
we fast forward to a few years later.
And I little the Lord who is sitting at the tense of 100.
And 100 was a gathering of an army that had never been gathered before in the Arabian Peninsula. Never before had 10,000 soldiers been gathered or seen. We're looking at looking at budget, it's 1000 machines. But it's 3000 machine again, you're not not used to seeing these types of numbers up until this point. And so when 10,000 Confederates had been gathered, Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and the Muslims devise a strategy, a tactic that had not been known to them before in the Arabian Peninsula. In fact, it was imported from Persia, by said manufacture of the law, I know they dug a trench surrounding a part of the city or the exposed parts of the city.
And the idea, of course of the trenches that the machine again can't come across it, they can't come across it.
But that didn't mean that individuals couldn't come across it if they were skilled enough.
And one of those who came across the trench from the machine again, was the famous warrior. Even would I'm Robin wood, this guy's a legendary fighter.
And so when he crossed over, what's he looking for? He's looking for a duel.
And so help me move out is
Is there anybody here to do? Who wants to do
and Rasulullah saw send them and also harbor hearing?
And I even every thought is like I would like to? And the prophets Allah license says, at least in the home, sit down, it's
And I'm restarting from the outside. Where is this agenda that you're talking about?
I'd have never thought I'd be out of sort of luck.
At least in the home.
And I'm restarting an idea of de la, la, me and the province on the license SM Sit down. It's an idea of the lotto says we're in Canada, even if it's amateur.
And so I'd even Have you thought about the law and who comes out
Ahmed is asking, Who are you he looks very young.
And it tells him who he is. And he says to him,
oh my son,
I have no desire to spill your blood.
And I little Delano says to him, but I very much would like to spill yours.
And so this upset him, of course hit his ego. And so he
fights with it have never thought about the law. And it defeats armor, even with the legendary fighter is defeated by it I've never thought. And so when the Muslims hear the tech bit of it, they realized that he had been killed very shortly after
his high bar.
And haber is a moment of incredible virtue variety of Navy thought. When you study the virtues of it, one of the greatest moments is not necessarily because of the battle that happened. But because of the statement that the Prophet symbolize in the made about and even abitata. favor was a fortress that's outside of Medina, and they had betrayed or sort of lost a little light as alum by joining the Confederates against the prophets on the lightest in them and the believers. And so now the believers had won that battle or the Confederates had fled, and now Faber has exposed their treachery is exposed and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is heading towards people with the Sahaba of
the law and the prophets of Allah to send the mix the state but then he says, tomorrow I will give the RIAA tomorrow I will give the banner to a man and here here's where the great virtue lies. He says, tomorrow I will give the banner to a man who loves a lot and His Messenger and to Allah and His Messenger love him.
It's such what's in this statement here in this statement is the testimony of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that that his love for Allah and His messenger is sincere. No one can ever doubt that about even me thought. But not only that, I'd even ever thought about the law and who it is being declared that Allah and His Messenger love it. And so no one who loves the line as a messenger can have hatred for it. I've never thought it was the last and the lightest, and then tells us that a lot as though it says man I really want to be
law says whoever shows enmity to a friend of mine, or someone who is under my protection, then I have given them a declaration of war.
And so here I'd even ever thought about the law and has been told by Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, or we are being told by Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam that align His Messenger love it. I've never thought it I will say that. He made a very interesting comment. He said, we used to know them.
By their hatred of him.
He became this criteria through which they knew who the people of nofap were, and who the people of Eman were. And so I'd even ever thought about the law and who I know it was sick actually, almost have no cutoff said, I never ever desired for to be in a position of leadership, except for that moment. Because if you're if you're the leader of that particular campaign, then you get that declaration of love. And that testimony of love. The province of the lightest, and them is looking around in the morning after the failure of prayer and he's looking around and he's looking around and then he says Where is it?
And this is why he didn't come out. He's in his tent. He had been he had an ailment with his eyes could barely see anything. And so the private cellulitis in him has him summoned. And then the private cellulitis ended up spills into the eyes of it with his saliva. And I even epithelium never had an issue with his eyes again, the province of colitis and them gives it have never taught him the banner and it never goes forward, leading the Muslims to haven now.
Here comes the dual favors champion comes out, and his name is Mark.
And mahabis favors king and his neighbor's champion.
And now he's asking for mobilizer. He's asking for a challenger who's going to fight me.
And so one of the companions came comes out on the lawn when he comes out
and more hub then initiate some poetry.
It's like a freestyle battle.
And he says, Hey, Bertha lm anymore hub. Jaime Sila bhatura Mudra is a robotic Bella tell her he says haber knows that I am Maha Hamad Silla the carrier of arms and it tested hero when wars ignite
whatever it's a little Nursery Rhymes Okay, except it. Then the lion who says haber knows that I am army. Ham is
a carrier of arms that adventures hero
and they strike out each other and arm his sword
strikes the armor of more help but more have injured armor and killed
And then more have once more
helped me move Iris. And then I leave now Vitaly comes out. And Addy in his life never lost a battle ever. Never. I'd even never thought it comes out.
And then he says his famous verses.
He says an Elisa Madni ami haidara.
He said, I am the one whose mother named him hyper hyper is aligned. I am the one whose mother named him hydel.
A couple of versions as to how his name ended up being Hazel. Number one is that when he was born, I will thought of his father was not there.
I will thought it was on a trip. He was absent. And so his mother named him that name. She wanted his name to be high low. So she named him high a lot of because of his
or she just liked the name halal. And then when his father came back, his father changed the name. And he said, No, his name is it. So that's number one. The second is the idea of the law and who was described as being a very actually weak child, a very sickly child. And so his mother would call him lion. As soon as you know, positive reinforcement, and the idea of the lion who was raised to be very, very tough, he got injured or something like that. He wasn't allowed to cry. It's very, very harsh, otoshi upbringing. But I don't know the law that says to mohab in that moment, he says and unless you submit Naomi haidara calafia Baba Tim Curry Holman vara ofii him Bissau Akina Sandara he
says calafia la bat like a lion of the jungle carry almanzora terrible in appearance. Terrible not meaning ugly, terrible meaning like fear inducing, right? terror inducing in my appearance ofii him besar Kayla son de la saw his four months. It's like what's equivalent to like three kilograms, okay? He's basically saying, whoever gives me a slot, I give him a Sundar back, you give me a kilo, I give you back a ton. Whatever you give me, I'm gonna give it back to you times 1000
I'm gonna hurt you. And so I do the law
strikes more quickly and more harm is killed by even a thought. And a bar is open that fortresses opened. I'd even never thought about the law and who would be son, I don't want you to think that it's just about before lodges I'd even never thought about even ever thought of when you look at his life. He's just so panela He's someone when you when you think of like, qualities of chivalry, and manliness and intelligence, you find everything just to the max. He's so inspiring. rhodiola and Wiley, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam sent him as a judge over Yemen. And it was still very young, you're talking about someone who's in his 20s, late 20s, maybe late 20s. And it says total loss and
I have no experience in judgment. I have no experience and judgment. And so the province of the light is in them. This is important, but even imagine the province of the lies and I'm taps on his chest. And he makes out for him and he says, Oh Allah give him truthfulness in speech and the prophets of Allah is in a mixed draft for him to have good judgment and ideal of the law. And who says ever since that moment? I never, I never had any doubt with regards to judging between two people. I always had clarity or the alarm. And it
would become someone who would always want so close because of that judgment, that that precision in his judgment and his analysis and his wisdom. And so constantly, many times he would say May Allah subhanaw taala not put me in a place where I would have been isn't May Allah subhanaw taala not present to me a complexity or some sort of issue of difficulty that I would have been is not here for Omar Abdullah who loves for his presence for For example, one example of that is that a man came to a woman in the hot tub and he was accusing his wife of Xena.
He said we just got married. And here we are six months later, and my wife gave birth
to pregnancy that six months. There must have been some sort of Xena before.
And so remember of the law
is about the command for this woman to be punished for that. I don't even know if sister Omar or the law
or law he says no. That's his kid.
And it's in the colon. Where is it in the Quran? He says, well if you saw the houfy I mean, Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran, and the winning of the child is a two month duration. And a loss of habitat also says in the Quran, we're humble who is all who Surah Surah Sha, Allah Subhana Allah says the pregnancy and the weaning is 30 months.
And so now if the weaning and the pregnant
together are 30 months and the weaning is two years which is 24 months, then you subtract to get the term of pregnancy or the minimum term of pregnancy you subtract 24 months from 30 months and you get six months. right the the level of interaction with the Koran and ability to extract from the Quran. So Omar of the Lord who constantly loved tridem nematology are delighted to be in his presence.
we fast forward a little bit more the philosophy of Rama, the philosophy of Earth man, and near the the depth of Earth amount while the line home.
In the last days of Earth man on earth man's house had been surrounded by the whole adage and they had prevented Muslims from or they had prevented a man from even praying in the masjid that prevented him from leading the prayer. And one of the highlighted is leading the prayer in the message. No one should think that this hoverboard, just you know, completely apathetic to all of this. They were not. In fact,
they many times had requests from earth magnet fan, just give us the green light. Let us defend you let us fight I even ever thought him himself came to the door of earth model the line give us permission to fight zedi beneath Sabbath or the law who showed up at the door of Earth man. And he said this amazing statement he said to him alongside obile Bab for an akuna onsala model attained for more than ever.
He says the unsought are at the door. So if you wish for us to be the onslaught of a lot twice, then commanders to fight and as a mindset to them when he said to it, when he said to so many others, he says whoever of you has any allegiance to me, then let them
remain in their homes. I do not want to be the first person who spills blood from the home of Mohammed's little lighters in them. And so if man would end up being killed in his house, the story is well known, and I'd even ever thought it afterwards would become the default. If you had a four year period that was filled with turmoil, he moves from Medina to El Kufa, and he's in constant strife with the people of Iraq. But I do know the Lord who has given
incredible quickness of thought, his responses are just amazing. And hikma would just pour out for him on the line or above.
So one person one time asked him a question, and he said to him,
and this is a major lesson really from the feed off of it. I've never thought a person said to him, just in passing, he said, why is it that the people revolted against you, but they didn't revolt against aboubaker and Roma.
Why Why is all of this happening to you, but it's not happening? tumblebook aroma like the problem is you right? But I have never thought I've said to him, because the people of Abu Bakr and Omar were me and those like me,
and the people I'm governing are you and those like you.
A lot of times as a community, we think that the problem is always leadership, leadership, leadership, leadership. If we had great leaders, then things would be okay. And the reason why we're so problematic is because of the problem of our leaders. But history belies that notion many times over many years, why he had great leaders. Every single time a prophet died, they'd have a new prophet Moosa is Ram is one of the greatest leaders of all time. But they still continue to fight with him and bigger with him and argue with him and push him
in every stage in every moment, because they were a horrible fluc. And there's a reason why penninsula eight is mentioned so many times in the Koran, and not just for us to just point to them and say they're a horrible father. No, it's because they are a community that we are going to resemble very, very much. And there's a reason why we are taught to follow leadership. There's a reason why Allah Allah Subhana Allah says Allah to Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah remain calm, follow those who or obey line obey His Messenger and obey those who are an authority amongst you. There's a reason why this law that we pray is designed for you to follow the EMA. You have no choice. You
follow the EMA in everything that they do. When they go into court. That's when you go into Roku. And when they get up, that's when you get up. I had a man, one time, this machine. We had security guards outside of the booth and their security guards were non Muslim. And I remember one time I was I was walking into the masjid going in for Juma and the security guards were standing outside and I was listening to them. As I was walking by they were talking and then one guy saying to the other he said man you ever seen the way these guys pray? Man they pray feet two feet shoulder to shoulder. That's unity. And I was like, Man, that's me and
you think that they're all together but their hearts are so divided. Their hearts are so that's the way that Allah subhanaw taala designed for us to be the prophets of Allah. They said I've said this if you go on a journey, then three of you should not go on a journey except that you make one of them. That me that you become into this habit of being a community that submits to lead
You know why? Because if you don't submit to leadership, if everybody is completely subservient or completely amazed and only wants to submit to their own ideas, and if it's not my idea, and if it's if it's not what I deem to be the best use of our resources, then I'm going to sabotage this project. And I'm going to make sure that for the next 20 years, this building doesn't get used, because it's not getting used for the purpose that I want it for. And let's not do right, and let's just completely
waste this resource.
We learn from the Prophet sallallahu send them that even if it's not the most ideal scenario, if you were able to gather everybody on the second best scenario, or the third best scenario, and you're able to move forward, then that is still better than not moving forward at all. And the example of that is, as advice do you want to make the other okay totally Shama?
last, last summer's will last So to conclude.
At the end of it his life
when he was hungry for for four years, either at 63 or 64 or 65.
became the target of an assassination. And what had happened was in Mecca, three of the how Rh had gathered,
and they plotted to kill three of the leaders of the Muslims and three of the companions. One of them said that they would go to Egypt and kill the loss.
And the other said that he would go to Damascus and kill Maui, Navy Sophia.
And the third of the mind of numerology said that he would go to El Kufa
to kill it.
And they said, we're just going to go and we're going to relieve the Muslims of their wickedness
and so they're all setting out to go kill the Sahaba Rossum lost a lot he was in.
And it was said that Miami museum he had actually married one of the one a woman from the whole adage and she had made her mother
a certain amount, and that he killed it may be thought
and so he went on this murderous quest and he got to an Kufa and it was in Ramadan, and earlier on the line who was making it decaf, and it was in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. In fact, it was on the 27th
and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had told it that he would be killed.
He had told him that he had told him and he said, that Ashkan Ashkan when he said that the most wretched of the early people
The early generations was the one who killed the NACA of Sala
Allah subhanaw. taala says, because the Mr. Moody Taha is Mbatha as the most wretched of the people, the most wretched of the people of the mood. He's the one who killed the she camel. And so the problem is the lesson I'm told that it said Ashkan already in the most wretched of the early people is the one who killed or slaughtered the camel love. Or the she camel of sada as for the most wretched of the later ones, is the one who strikes this and he pointed out his forehead until this is filled with blood. And so it along the line who, at times frustrated with the people would say my I'm not rushed. Like What's taking so long, like what's taking this guy so long? And so I've got I
might even emoji as I even ever thought of is waking up the people for so long. Right? It's the last 10 of Ramadan. And he's in the midst of the nice thing of sola sola, sola, sola, and he's waking everybody up, and then
up dramatically moodgym.
strikes, I didn't have a thought, and it's a poison blade. And I did on the line who would be a number of days before he passed away. But he told them, he said, If I live, then I will tell you what to do with him because they had captured him. If I live, I'll tell you what to do with him. And if I die, then you decide amongst yourselves. They asked him Are you going to nominate? Are you going to appoint someone to be the hydrophone? He said I'm not going to take its responsibility in life and in depth.
The last thing that I want to leave you with is a description. It's a famous description of it. Have you ever thought that my name is Sophia and had asked one of the companions, one of the tabs in actually, and it's a very beautiful description.
The that is the Dalai Lama. And Maria had asked him and he said Tim described for me it. This is after it had been killed. He said to him, describe for me it and the Lord was one of the companions and the supporters of I'd even ever thought of and he said to him, he said, Please excuse me from that. And he said, No, I don't excuse you.
And so then he described even a thought with a lengthy and beautiful description he says about him cannot lie, but he did mention muda shady Dooku yaku Fossella wacka Mandala yet vegetal el momento, Nev so he says he was by Allah, someone who is very farsighted, very strong in his power, he would speak concisely and authoritative Lee wacky more modern and he would rule justly, and knowledge would burst from him, knowledge would burst from him. And so would wisdom. And then he says your social media dunia was a herati ha, where's that needs to be laid, or actually, that he used to not be impressed at all with the dunya and everything that it offers. And he used to long for the night
and being secluded in it. And then until he says,
we used to not even speak with him out of all of him. But at the same time, he was one amongst us. And he used to respond to us if we would ask him. And whenever we would be next to him, he would be amongst us. And we wouldn't looked up at him due to the all that we have for him for interests. And then if he smiled, it would be like pearls. And he went on but then he gives a description of him to conclude and he says, and at night I would see him or I saw him at night, praying in the night in his mouth. And he was holding his beard. And he was the crying the crying of a person who was ill. And he would say to himself, and he's the honey fat this time he would say Yeah.
He would say oh dounia seduce someone other than me.
Because I have divorced you a divorce after which there is no return
for omura casia where he should be happy tell we're heartbroken because your lifespan is too short.
And your standard is too low. And your danger is too great.
He maintained that is that we're bored to suffer will actually tell you how long is the journey and how little is the provision and how lonely is the road.
I have never thought about the line and pass through here at 63. And Allah Subhana Allah knows best and he is one of the great companions of Rasulullah saw the Lotus alum and I wanted to share this because the idea is even if we can't be likeable Sahaba as the poet said the Shabbat will be him in Nantucket.
Mr. Chabot decided Hina Flacco that you try to resemble them in whatever you can even if you're not able to be like them to be equivalent to them. Why because resembling the righteous in and of itself is success zakum la hermosa lightest and hamadryad either side vicinissimo catella
