Muslims and one of the great Sahaba I've never thought about the Allahu Anhu. And
we begin we predicate with a couple of statements. The first one is a statement of Abdullah hidden materials below the line 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, when cannon was standing in failure, standing by demand, whoever view is going to follow the path of anyone follow the paths of those who have passed away. Why in Haleigh Tuchman I lay Hill 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'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 this the advice of Abdullah him is really 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 us having Mohammed 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 listed a number of qualities of the qualities of the Sahaba of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, why is it important for us to learn about the companions? He says Colonel Allah, he often had to heal Amma they were by Allah, the best of this ummah.
Abraha collusion, they had the most righteous hearts. What are Makuha really man 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 Mr. Root he didn't say before. Sahaba have the most knowledge. He didn't say a Coronavirus element he said Makaha element they had the deepest knowledge what that means is that any verse or any Hadith 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, I'm alcohol men who suffer they were the least superficial. They were the least
superficial. They were a people whom Allah subhanaw taala chose Lea comity Dini,
but you're also they were committed DNA. They were people from Allah subhanaw taala chose selected to be the companions of His Messenger SallAllahu Sallam and to establish his religion. So then what are we required to do? He says variety for him for glow. 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 I didn't who didn't muster team 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 Sallam one of the greatest companions. It had been IB thought,
why do we do do this, the children have sided nebula cos they said our father used to teach us the Maharaja of Rasulullah sallallahu escena, 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 mozzie, the seal of the Prophet sallallahu they set it up and they used to say to us had a shot off welcome. 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 Hobbit I'll be Allah on whom you become infused with
pride. Because they are your forefathers. They are your and my forefathers.
I'd have never thought it'd be a lot at home. Is it even maybe even Abdulmutallab even Hashem the
cousin of Rasulullah Salallahu idea of setting up his father I both thought he was the one who famously raised the profits that Elijah send them after his grandfather of the mythology passed away. So from the age of eight onwards, the Prophet sallallahu sallam was raised by authority later on authority of himself would become someone who had many children and he was not very wealthy. And so what Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam married for the IJA and he became settled. He took on Isley as
a someone that he raised
To relieve Abu Talib of some of his burdens. And so I did on the Allahu anhu, 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. They said, Allah becomes a prophet and a messenger, the incidence of Aquila happens, and I'll be Allah and who is of the earliest Muslim? Some of the scholars said that he's the earliest Muslim before if I need to add before work. Nonetheless, he is definitely one of the first three, I will work, Hadith or the law, Anna, and I've never thought about the law and who and I will work with the Allah and who is the first male and her digital, the Alana 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 very interesting diversity of, of the society. Nonetheless, I've even ever thought about the law on who at 10 years old, he accepts Islam, and a little Dillard 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 Salallahu Alaihe Salam and Khadija and also Allah cinema Fatima obviously didn't worship idols. And so I grew up not having been corrupted by this belief. He believes in Rasulullah sallallahu 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 is life but some snapshots and so I didn't know the law and we fast forward until the province littlebyte IS LM is migrating. So 13 years have now gone by, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is migrating to Medina and the prophets Allah Allah Allah sent them places where we get some glimpses of it his character having been raised in the house of the prophets, Allah Allah Allah has sent them Ali
sleeps in the bed of the Prophet Salah Leida send them a bed that was expected to be ambushed by the machete keen to assassinate Rasul Allah, some of it is and
and so it sleeps in that bed, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam 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've never thought about the Allah 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 prophets of Allah to send them one clan. If one clan attack the prophets on the light, I send them but 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 clients all strike Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam at the same time and so the blood will then be spread throughout a number of clans and Bono, 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 prophets of Allah, they send them lustrous work, the machine did not catch
Rasulullah sallallahu their send them and they found that a little the Allahu Anhu there it would then migrate to Medina. Before he migrated, however, the prophets of Allah Allah sent them had him stay behind to distribute some of the Amana that were still in the house of Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihe Salam, interestingly enough, and amazingly enough, even though sudo Allah Allah Allah Allah Salam was being called a ser hid and he was being accused of all of these different criticisms by Federation the slanders really not criticisms, but slanders and rumors that they were spreading about him. People were still giving him their money, people were still giving them their valuables.
Why? Because the prophets, Allah Leida send them before he was known as the Messenger of Allah, He was known as a slob. I mean, he was known as the truthful and he was known as the trustworthy and ALLAH SubhanA. Allah when it comes to the seer of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. I've mentioned this before, but I had a, I had a British
And this British literature professor, when we'd 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, and 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 butchery. I mean, 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, 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 Quran deserve more analysis? This is the seed of the province of the licen and deserve more of that type of respect. Out of all of the names that the province of Elijah send them could have had in Makkah, his name was Assad that and I mean, everything he could have been NKD. Right. He could have been any Jimmy, he could have been so many different things, the province of Elijah Selim, 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
salallahu Salam, you know, 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 ummah, that is going to carry the message then you have to look at our we an owner that is considered to be trustworthy, and are we an OMA that's considered to be truthful? Are we an owner 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 distributes even as his migrating to Medina and he's fleeing the fleeing the persecution of the Mexicans, the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is distributing that which he was
entrusted with through it, I've never thought it I'd even ever thought it would migrate to Medina when he migrates to Medina, he finds that the Prophet SAW THE lighters, sending them has done this Maha between the MaHA Julian and the unsought he is he has drawn up this brotherhood between them hygiene and the answer. And I've never thought I've asked the prophets that Elijah said them well, 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 leave, never thought it was brother was Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I only when you're talking about two years later,
I need all the Allah and 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 all the Lord 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 eyelid on the Allah on her. So while he's in that state of poverty,
I'll be healthy or unnecessary reports that for him are the Allah Anna is starting to get proposals, bye by of work and aroma, and also lost on the lightest and and tells them she's too young. And so I'd be happy then reports that I did on the lawn who had a servant, and his servant is saying to him, do you know the farmers 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 I don't have anything to ask for her with. But she kept on insisting and insisting and insisting until at the end of the Allah and who finally finds himself in front of Rasul Allah, so Allah, Allah, Allah is Allah. And it said, we used to be in such awe of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he does not say a word. And the prophets, Allah Leidos. And live 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 province of a lighter send them he said to him, maybe you have come to ask for faulty.
And so I did all the law and who says Yes, right. It's super awkward, right? And then
he says to her to it, what do you have? What can you give her? And it says, Yes, Allah, I don't have anything. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says to him, What about the shield that I gave you? You're not thinking when you're thinking about Muhammad, you're not thinking of giving her a shield, right? And so the Prophet sallallaahu, Selim says, 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 Prophet sallallahu sallam said to him, and you must have a William there must be something. And so I didn't know the law and it doesn't have anything for
olema so we're gonna fast forward to the Battle of the Battle of Vegeta happens and this is now a little the law and was first
first battle. This is the first time in his life where he's participating in a battle of the Lord. And the battle of Vegeta is a battle that was instigated by Abuja. There were lots of people in Makkah, who did not think the Battle of veteran was a good idea. Initially, remember, it was a caravan supposed to be intercepted of Abu Sophia, Abu Sufyan 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 Abuja 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 plays again, and people people don't want it. And hula is just such a che tans. He's going and he's whispering in 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 you didn't want Quraysh to fight was automated in
an automated manner. Robbie, I was one of the leaders of Quraysh. And earthbath, 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 your earthbag got scared, even though you all know that I'm the least scared amongst you. But just blame it on me. And I will Jehovah is continuing to instigate to the point where now it's time for the battle. And now his ego kicks into overdrive. And so Earth but 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 the fight, to being Interestingly enough, the person who's going out to challenge the Muslims to a duel him and his brother shea butter and his son and worried. So it's a family they all come out
and who comes out to meet them three men from the unsought
well, who are you? And they say we're from yesterday 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 Mecca.
And so Rasulullah sallallahu they're sending them he says, yeah, it yeah Hamza calm. They either obey the mill hive. And so I didn't, I thought it comes out for the duel, as well as Hamza
as well as obey them in Hadith.
And Hamza and it both make quick work of their opponents.
And Shaybah strikes or Vader in the LEC an injury though Vader would eventually die from. And so when he struck, or Aveda, then it and Hamza both attacked Shaybah and they killed him. And the battle of whether that happened, and everybody knows how that plays out. The Muslims when I leave, never thought it gets from his spoils of war as as mentioned behind a Muslim. He says, I got an old, she camo 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'd even ever thought about the Allah on 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 the Allah and 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 can't move, it's parked, it's fine, but it's about to get towed.
And the above the law is inside the house. 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 Hamza villa on who has been drinking. And so he goes out, and he sweaters the camel and he cuts off its two humps, and then he rips out its liver and idled Allah and who comes back to his camel and he finds it dead slaughtered humps covered off lever and he said, I began to tear.
I began to tear from this. And so he went and he told me Rasulullah saw said him about it. And then the Prophet SAW I said, I'm going to confront that Hamza
nonetheless, I didn't have you thought it. The wedding happens different Muslims had assisted. Some said we'll support with a sheep and other side with other things and even everybody is able to have his wedding. And a year later he is blessed with a son.
I didn't know the lion has blessed with the sun. The Prophet SAW I said his first grandson and he goes, and he
Rasulullah sallallahu s&m asks and he says, What did you name him? And I live in every thought. He says we have named him help.
And how was just like, the name that any 25 year old would love to name his son. You know why? Because then you become a Buhari. The father of war
is just amazing, right? I will help and the province of Elijah send them he says no, his name is Al Hassan.
And that just it shows you truly you know people who don't know rasool Allah, Allah, Allah Allah is certainly they think he is some sort of war monger. But look at even these types of names. The province of Elijah said and did not like
how he says no, his name is Hassan, the beautiful. You know, there are some narrations that say that the next time he had a son, the province had lice, and I've 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 a nursing the one who does beautiful things, or the one who does beauty right? All of these names revolving around beauty the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is naming his sons. I'd even never thought about the lion who has it hasn't. And even though he's married to fall tomorrow, the lion had the daughter of Rasulullah sallallahu. They said live their life was far from luxurious. In fact, they had a similar lifestyle to the lifestyle of the private seller ladies and the Prophet saw a low dose and then did not have any luxuries that were beyond anything that the most basic of the Muslims had. And I didn't every thought even thought in my head, the similar lifestyle, the
prophets, Elijah synonyms, lustful swaths of Allah 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. I'd even ever thought he was carrying water so much that his back is aching. And so I need all the Allah and who says to Fatima? Why don't you go and ask them? Allah Allah, Allah, Allah and send them for a servant, and so forth to model the ALLAH and he goes to ask the prophets of Allah, they send them for a servant and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would never see for ultimate except that he would
stand up and he would see her where he himself saw the light. So I'm sitting. Nonetheless, Fatima, asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam for a servant and the Rasulullah sallallahu send them says to her, No,
I'm not going to give you and leave a Lucifer.
Now who is Lucifer? Lucifer 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 Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi. Salam 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 prophets of Allah do send them enters upon Fatima and it held the ALLAH and he finds that they are laying down and so he tells them to stay where they are. And then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he stands in between them and earlier on the Allah and who says, I felt the coolness of his feet. And then the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Shall I not tell you what is better for you than a servant? That every night before you go to sleep that you Say Subhan Allah 33 times at Hamdulillah 33 times and Allahu Akbar 33 times that is better for you than a servant. Right? The URL they extracted from this and they said, Nicola Yoko will burden 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?
calisthenics? Yeah, so there's a specific group or organization or program or hobby they're called bar stars. And the brother who founded it is a Muslim brother, his name is Hudson. But his nickname on the street is just
fizzled out of stone.
And so he was telling
As we brought him over to the message one time, and he took all the young people out and he took them 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 subhanallah.
Every time he was going up on the pull up bar, it's Subhan Allah or Hamdulillah, or Allahu Akbar, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah or something like that. So much. 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 subhanaw taala really gives the person energy it gives a person strength. Now remember, at the beginning, we said, the lion was rude said that was horrible. We're not the most acknowledged but they had the deepest knowledge, they interacted with knowledge, at a level that nobody else did. The lightning was rude said that he said, A Makuha element they had the deepest knowledge. I never 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 Allah Allah who is narrating this, and he said
something incredibly powerful. He said, By Allah, I never went to sleep
ever without, since the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told me this without saying Subhan Allah or hamdulillah and Allahu Akbar.
It's never happened. When they would learn a hadith, it would be something that they implement it 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, Well, what about
and so, one person said to it, he said, not even on the day of Safin.
He said not even on the day of Sofia the day of Safina is the day, where the army of it clashed with the army of Medallia, it was said that more Muslims died on the day of Safin. Then, in the in the all of the campaign's of the Muslims up until that point.
Can you just imagine how because both sides were Muslim, right? We learned in history that the war that had the most American casualties was the Civil War. Both sides are American. And so how do you hold the law and who he was walking amongst the dead on the day of Sofia, and he was calling out it hasn't I wish that I had died before this by 20 years. The amount of questioning in front of Allah subhanaw taala so many dead Muslims. And yeah, I don't even know if you thought if said to that question or not even on the day of the feed, he said not even on the day of Sufi, even on the day of Sufi, and that night when he went to sleep he said SubhanAllah 33 times at Hamdulillah 33 times and
Allah but 33 times, I did all the Allah and
we fast forward to a few years later,
an idea of the Allah and who is sitting at the tenths of 100.
And then hung up 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 you're looking at budget, it's 1000 machete kid, oh, that's 3000 machete kid. 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 or tactic that had not been known to them before in the Arabian Peninsula. In fact, it was imported from Persia, by Sandman at forest you know, the Allah 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 trench is 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 was the famous warrior even would have been would this guy is 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 I sent them in those harbor hearing?
And it been every thought is like, Allah I would like to, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, at least in the who
sit down it's amble
nobody This is
an amorous taunting from the outside. Where is this Jana that you're talking about?
I'd even never thought I'd be able to sort of look
at listen to her.
And I'm just taunting an ideology. Allahu Allahu Allah. Me and the Prophet sallallaahu. Selim says them sit down. It's an honor. And I did what the law says, When can I
even if it's
and so I've never thought about the law and who comes out
and the armor is asking who
Are you 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 did what the law 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. I've never thought about the Allah and it defeats armor even with the legendary fighter is defeated by I live in every thought. And so when the Muslims hear the tech bit of it, they realize that I'm had been killed very shortly after
And haber is a moment of incredible virtue for it. And I thought it when you study the virtues of it, one of the greatest moments is cable, not necessarily because of the battle that happened. But because of the statement that the province of Elias and the made about I live in every thought it fabled was a fortress that's outside of Medina and they had betrayed or allah sallallahu Sallam by joining the Confederates against the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the believers. And so now the believers had won that battle or the Confederates had fled, and now Faber is exposed, their treachery is exposed, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is heading towards favor with the Sahaba, or
the alarm and the Prophet sallallaahu send them makes a statement and he says, tomorrow I will give the RIAA tomorrow I will give the banner to a man and hear it here's where the great virtue lies. He says tomorrow I will give the banner to a man who loves Allah 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 salallahu Alaihe Salam that it is love for Allah and His Messenger is sincere. No one can ever doubt that about it, you've never thought it. But not only that, it you've never thought about the Allah and who it is being declared that Allah and His Messenger love it. And so no one who loves Allah and His messenger can have hatred for it, you've never thought Rasulullah sallallahu they send them tells us that Allah Allah, Allah says that he will be informed as to who will help. Allah 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 even ever thought about the Allah and who's being told by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, or we are being told by Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam that Allah and His Messenger love it. I've never thought it I will say the whole day he made a very interesting statement. He said, we used to know the Munna Philippine, by their hatred of Hadith never thought it.
He became this criteria through which they knew who the people of New fop were and who the people of Eman were. And so I'd even never thought it would be law. No, I Oh, it was sick. Actually. Roma, even though I've 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 Allah, they send them is looking around in the morning after the federal prayer, and he's looking around and he's looking around and then he says, where's it
and they say, Allah, He didn't come out. He's in his time. He had been. He had an ailment with his eyes could barely see anything. And so the Prophet sallallaahu syndrome has him summoned. And then the private satellite is ended up spills into the eyes of it with his saliva. And I've never thought I've never had an issue with his eyes again. The province of Elijah send them gives it I've never thought of the banner and I've never thought it goes forward, leading the Muslims to haber now.
Here comes the dual fables champion comes out and his name is Maha.
And Marhaba is Faber's King and he's favours 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 road, the alarm when he comes out
and more hub that initiate some poetry.
It's like a freestyle battle.
And he says, Hey, Bertha, LM ne marhaba Jaime Silla bottom
is a heroic Bella tell her he says haber knows that I am marhaba Hamid Silla, the carrier of arms and attested hero when wars ignite
whatever it's a little nursery rhyme Okay. Except it then I'm an old doula and he says labor knows that I am army. Ham is
a carrier of arms and adventurous hero.
And they strike out each other and ominous sword
strikes the armor of marhaba Smarthub injures armor and kills him
And then more hub wants more.
Help me move out is and then I leave never thought it comes out and early in his life never lost a battle ever. Never. I'd even never thought it comes out.
And then he says his famous versus
he says an Elisa medneo me Hi Laura.
He said, I am the one whose mother named him Hagar. Hagar is a lion. I am the one whose mother named him hydel.
A couple of versions as to how his name ended up being hydrated. Number one is that when he was born, a well thought of his father was not there.
I thought it was on a trip. He was absent. And so his mother named him that name. She wanted his name to be high. So she named him however 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 EULA and who was described as being a very actually weak child, a very sickly child. And so his mother would call him lion
as as you know, positive reinforcement and the idea of the law and who was raised to be very, very tough fee got injured or something like that. He wasn't allowed to cry, just very, very harsh aura she upbringing but it allowed him says to him tomorrow, having that moment, he says, and a lady submitted Naomi Hi, Laura Calafia Viva Tim Curry Holman. Voila, ofI him beside a Cana Sandara he says Calafia like a lion of the jungle curry. almanzora terrible in appearance. Terrible not meaning ugly, terrible meaning like fear inducing, right? Terror inducing in my appearance ofI him Bismillah al Qaeda, Sandra saw is four months it's it's it's like what's the equivalent to like three
kilograms, okay? He's basically saying, Whoever gives me a slob, I give him a Sunday 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 did all the Allah
strikes Smarthub quickly and more help is killed by even ever thought him and labor is open that fortresses opened. I'd even never thought about the Allah and who would be something. I don't want you to think that it's just about pathologists. I don't even ever thought about I didn't ever thought that when you look at his life. He's just Subhanallah 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 Riley. The Prophet SAW Allah it was sent him 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, allah sallallahu sallam, I have no experience in judgment. I have no experience and judgment. And so the Prophet sallallaahu Salam this was reported by even imagine the prophets of Allah is and I'm taps on his chest, and he makes dua for him and he says, Oh Allah, give him truthfulness and speech and the prophets, Allah Allah is and and pray, makes dua for him to have good judgment. And I did what he 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 Allah Allah, and it
would become someone who I thought would always want so close, because of that, that judgment, that that precision in his judgments 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 done isn't May Allah subhanaw taala not present to me a complexity or some sort of issue of difficulty that I would have done is not here for OH MY GOD, ALLAH who loves for his presence for for example, one example of that is that a man came to Bob 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.
Don't pregnancy that six months, there must have been some sort of zener before.
And so the Lord
is about to command for this woman to be punished for that. I live in Chester Omar, Allah and Allah he says, No, that's his kid.
And it's in the Quran. Where is it in the Quran? He says, Well, if you saw the hoof here, I mean, Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, and the winning of the child is a two month duration. And Allah subhanaw taala also says in the Quran, we're humble who have a soul who said I Sudha Shahara Allah subhanaw taala says the pregnancy and the weaning is 30 months.
And so now if the weaning and the pregnancy together are 30 months and
Then 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 Quran and ability to extract from the Quran. So, Rama radula and who constantly love try it have nematology are delighted to be in His presence.
we fast forward a little bit more the philosophy of grammar, the philosophy of Earth man and near the death of Earth man while the Allah and who
in the last days of Earth man on earth man's house had been surrounded by the whole outage, and they had prevented the Muslims from or they had prevented this man from even praying in the masjid that prevented him from leading the prayer and one of the hostages leading the prayer in the masjid no one should think that the Sahaba were just you know completely apathetic to all of this. They were not in fact
they many times had requested from Earth man enough fun just give us the green light let us defend you let us fight I'd even every thought him himself came to the door of Earth model of the ally give us permission to fight Zaidi beneath orbit about the Allah and who showed up at the door of Earth man. And he said this amazing statement he said to him alongside will build up for in shape to an akuna Onsala Hemmati in fact, more than abilty that he says the unsought are at the door. So if you wish for us to be the onslaught of Allah twice, then command us to fight and Arthur mine said 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 Mohamed Salah Lourdes and, and so forth man would end up being killed in his house. The story is well known and I live in every thought that afterwards would become the philosopher it 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, Allah and Allah.
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 it 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 Abu Bakr and Rama.
Like why is all of this happening to you but it's not happening to Abu Bakr Omar like the problem is you right? But I've 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 in 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 and 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, right had great leaders. Every single time a prophet died, they do have a new prophet Musa is that I am 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 flock. And there's a reason why Benny is law eat has mentioned so many times in the Quran, and not just for us to just point to them and say they're a horrible thought, 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 so Allah Subhana Allah says Allah to Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah Allah Bremen come, follow those who are obey Allah and obey His messenger and obey those who are in authority amongst you. There's a reason why this Salah 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 court. And when they get up. That's when you get up. I had a man, one time this message. They had security guards outside of the masjid and their security guards were non Muslim. And I remember one time I was I was walking into the masjid going in for Jamal 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 is saying to the other he said Man, you ever see the way these guys pray? Man they pray feet to feet shoulder to shoulder. That's unity.
And I was like, Man, that's everything Jimmy
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. Allah said have said this, if you go on a journey that three of you should not go on a journey except that you make one of them. Amid that you become into this habit of being a community that submits to leadership. 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 us for the purpose that I want it for. And let's not do right and let's just completely
waste this resource.
We learned from the Prophet sallallahu send them that even if it's not the most ideal scenario, if you're 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 I've made you want to make the other okay totally
Allahu Akbar Allahu
try the one minute or so no
try the one minute or so
Hi Jana sauna
Hi Yan Fila
have the last last summer sweet love so to conclude.
At the end of his life
when he was Khalifa for four years, either as 63 or 64 or 65
became the target of an assassination. And what had happened was in Makkah, three of the holodeck 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 Ahmed in the loss.
And the other said that he would go to Damascus and kill Maori and every Sophia.
And the third of their humanity MoodGYM said that he would go to El Kufa
to kill it Monogatari 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 of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.
And it was said that I'm gonna remind me MoodGYM he had actually married one of the one a woman from the whole adage, and she had made her Maha
a certain amount, and that he killed it and he thought it
and so he went on this murderous quest and he got to a Kufa an ally, it was in Ramadan, and it Rhodiola and who was making it decaf, and it was in the last 10 nights of Ramadan. In fact, it was on the 27th
and the prophets of Allah they sent him had told it that he would be killed.
He had told him that he had told him and he said, That ash can Ashkelon a wedding. He said that the most wretched of the early people, the early generations were
was the one who killed the NACA of Salah
ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, because the Messiah mu betta Hawa is Imbaba Ashkar, the most wretched of the people, their most wretched of the people of the moon. He's the one who killed the she camel. And so the province level I said, I'm told the IDE said, I shall already in the most wretched of the early people is the one who killed or slaughtered the Camela. Or the she camel of Salah. As for the most wretched of the later ones, is the one who strikes this. And he pointed out it is forehead until this is filled with blood. And so earlier about the law and who, at times frustrated with the people would say my gosh, like what's taking so long, like what's taking this guy so long. And so
I've got him as it been every thought is waking up to the people for so long. Right? It's the last 10 of Ramadan. And he's in the midst of the nice thing of salatu salam ala Rasulillah. And he's waking everybody up, and then
up dramatically MoodGYM.
Strikes, it may be thought it and it's a poison blade. And it radula and 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 his 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, we never thought that my name is Sophia and had asked one of the companions on one of the tabs in actually and it's a very beautiful description.
The the tablet is the Dalai Lama. And Maria had asked him and he said to him describe for me it this is after it had been killed. He said to him describe for me it and that was one of the companions and the supporters so I 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 I didn't have you thought it with a lengthy and beautiful description he says about him. Kind of Allah he but you don't matter. shahidul Chua the Akula Fossella Welcome to vegetable oil moment joining me so he says he was by Allah, someone who is very farsighted, very strong in his power, he would speak concisely, and authoritatively way I came on land and he would rule justly, and knowledge would burst from him, knowledge would burst from him. And so would wisdom. And then he says, You're still assuming a dunya was the Herati Ha, where's that needs to be laid? Oh, actually, that he used the 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 look up at him due to the all that we have for him for interventionism. 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 fattest time he will say yeah, dunya
he will say oh dunya seduce someone other than me.
Because I have divorced you a divorce, after which there is no return
for Omar okay Cassia where he should be happy. We're hotter, rocky can be ideal, because your lifespan is too short.
And your standard is too low. And your danger is too great.
He maintained that is that what the sufferer will actually tell you? How long is the journey? And how little is the provision. And how lonely is the road.
I live in every thought a little Dylon who passed away at
63. And Allah Subhana Allah knows best and he is one of the great companions of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and I wanted to share this because the idea is even if we can't be likable Sahaba as the poet said the Sherpa who beat him in them to call me to the home in the Chabot de Sala Hina fella
I hope 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, Xochimilco, him cellulitis and Mahamadou ileitis cyber center Seema Cattell
but he still asked me to describe like, how he won. Yeah. Tell me tell me about
