Selam Aleykum cattle everyone, brothers and sisters in Islam hungry levels so that was Salam ala rasulillah It's a pleasure for me to be here all the way from Australia and to see these wonderful faces before me. It gives me great confidence. Brothers and sisters
the topic which has been assigned to me is about the companion earthmen ignore I've brought the alarm on
Allah subhana wa tada said, by the hour we let him in a shaytaan rajim Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem.
Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us about these companions and he calls them men.
How are they men, Allah said, they are true men because they fulfilled the promise which they gave to Allah subhana wa Tada. What they promised they did, they fulfilled their promise to Allah.
Some of them have passed away and some of them still away. There are people who imitate the companions and take them as role models. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has put them also in that rank.
So we have a chance also, to use them as our role models, and we can possibly be among those men.
Sisters are asking What about me?
sometimes you can use the masculine term to refer to both genders.
So it means someone who has power over themselves and control over themselves. They have integrity, they have esteem.
The valuable this special
one ever dealt with Abdullah Allah subhanaw taala says, during the course of their life, they never changed what they initially
promised promise to do.
You know, sometimes we have a surge of Eman as time goes on how a man goes down, which is normal.
But some people they change they burn out.
For example, some people got into the dean very strongly, they want to be super Muslims. Don't be a super Muslim.
Don't be a super Muslim. Take things step by step. Your character is more important than the amount of practice that you do. And the way you look.
Brothers and sisters in Islam
of man, I'm not a fan of the last one who was one of those whose character outweighed his actions in the beginning, then his actions would sometimes outweigh his character.
Who are we talking about? We are talking about a man who is the emblem and role model of higher, higher means modesty and self respect toward law, which means humility and humbleness.
We're talking about a man who is extremely generous. We're talking about a man who has to stay up in the Knights
praying to Allah subhanaw taala calling out to Allah. We are talking about a man who was full of sacrifice. He is the man who the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said to his daughter, his first daughter Rukia. Stay with him.
For I don't know anyone more resembling of my character, the northmen
Samantha Dolan has the closest character the province of arsenal.
So let's look at his character. First of all, honestly, I love talking about with Natalie alone. And each companion has their own character, their own, their own passion, and they have their own personality. So you'll never find one companion who fits all. And every single one of you here will find themselves similar to one or two of the companions and none of us are all the same. You've got the tough ones, you've got the soft ones, you've got the firm ones, you've got the ones who are a bit lenient, he got the shy ones. He got the ones who are very confident out there. extroverts, introverts, all of them have their positive positivity. And that I'm saying that said none of you
can ever look down upon yourself because you have a particular personality. Be proud of it. That's the personality Allah has given you and you need to know how to use it, to benefit
yourself and benefit the community and do what's best that makes a loss. pantalla pleased for you to enter Paradise and live a good life and happiness. Be proud about who you are. Sometimes it's right
Brothers and sisters in Islam, Allah The Allahu anhu said, You are asking me about Othman, who is who is nicknamed by the angels.
As the nordrhein, the man of the two lights.
You know who the two lights are?
They are his two wives, not at the same time. They are the two Prophet, the two daughters of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he married first Rokia, or the alarm on the daughter of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam then she died. Then he married him macoun, the daughter of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Then she died. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said to him, what law health men if I had a third daughter, I will give it to you,
brothers and sisters in Islam. Let's see why. This man before Islam was loved by koresh, the non Muslims loved him. Do you know why they loved him?
Because he was wealthy
and wait for it. He was humble. It's very rare to find someone who is very wealthy, and yet as humble as humble can be.
If you are like that, then Allah has blessed you with this wealth. And you will win both this world and the next. humbleness Tada. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said mantova Allah Allah He Rafa whoever humbles themselves before Allah, Allah will lift them it will lift your esteem, and people will love you. And I'm not talking about fake love, not about people who just look good on Facebook. There are so Facebook. I said Facebook didn't like Facebook should be called Facebook, but I'm not talking about that I'm talking about genuine genuine people will last pentile as my people to love them. Even non Muslims would love you because of your character.
or smart or the long line who was born six years after the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he was medium built wide shoulders, soft looking. And you looked at him he was he looks soft.
And he enjoyed his company. He was approachable.
He never committed Xena.
You know Xena is fornication, adultery,
no sleeping around her own way.
He never committed Zina even before Islam he never murdered anyone he never committed shidduch he was actually an innovative worship an idol even before Islam. He didn't drink alcohol in fact, he was against it. He was against alcohol.
One day he desired to marry the prophets daughter Rukia take you through the sequence
and the prophets uncle Abu lahab you all know Buddha bright
you know, you met him? No. Okay, so then Abu lahab the man fire in the other way is man of hellfire. He's the one that Allah subhana wa is sent down the verse that Bharatiya Urbina have been whipped up now I want the young people to I just want to take this time for the young people to listen to this. It look listen to how it sounds debate here there have been there have been whatever it's gonna bounce to it, isn't it?
It's like rap, isn't it? Is it? I just I just said something terrible didn't I? Couldn't it's not like rap, but it does have a bounce to it. And it's a deliberate bounce. Why? Because look what happened when this guy Abu lahab he started cursing his own nephew started talking bad about him after Islam. So last time Tyler was brought down his vision sounded like a bounce.
You know why?
Because he wanted the children to start singing it like as if it's a song but it was really quite an every child in Mecca
absorbed it and he had a catchy sound to say every one of them started to lose the run and play while reading the bet the other abelia have been Mata and Abdullah would come past and he would get angry say stop it shut up. And the children would laugh now could you run a run off
marijuana humiliate yourself? Just pick on a kid.
Brothers and sisters, this man Abu lahab used to love the Prophet sallallahu Sallam so his son out about he married the prophets daughter Claire, before Islam, and on the line we had a secret
passion for her he loved her right he was like what you say when you someone has a crush on someone, but this was a real crusher because it allowed who he loved and it's nothing wrong with somebody having certain feelings towards someone after they've seen their character and you know what family they come from, that's fine, but just keep it to yourself and don't don't do anything wrong.
I'm a teacher. And some students though, was asking me I like this guy. I like this girl. What can I do? I say keep liking him until the day comes when you're able to get married to him and go and ask for them from the parents in identity Hanky Panky stuff. Go around the corner and start meeting in secret and stuff like that. Now. do it the right way.
I promise you, she'll respect you
and you respect her. But there's nothing wrong with liking someone. Just keep it to yourself and maybe Allah, Allah will get you married to them maybe not.
So smart. Ilana had a secret love for her. And she married. He was so sad and he was so hurt.
So one day
soudha his Auntie came to him and said, I've got good news for you.
There is a man who says he's a prophet. And he's brought a Quran. And this is the Quran she recited some verses to him and she had embraced Islam. He said, what a man who says he's a prophet from crisis yet come and meet in South America and he went on his way he met Abu Bakr rhodiola Han, and overgrow was one of his closest friends. He said to him, I've heard of men saying he's a prophet. And I've looked at that and said, Yes, he's more he is a Sadiq Khan. I mean, the truth for the most trustworthy said none other better him. He said, Yes. He said, This is what Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam is saying, and Osman said this sounds amazing. He went and met the prophets of Allah Allah
was sending within about 10 to 15 minutes he embraced Islam. He was among the first five to embrace Islam,
of Ramallah delana believe the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And he knew what character meant because he had the similar character.
And so Abu lahab went against the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to the point where he got his son and he said, Hey, listen, Come here, son. Divorce the prophets door of divorce. Mohammed Dora sallallahu Sallam said why said because we want to hurt him before sir.
And he divorced her.
South matter the law, no jumped in the air and said this is my opportunity. He went to the province of Allah Selim said I want to marry her jasola and the Prophet peace be upon him did not hesitate. He married Rukia
and Time passed. Now want to tell you something both of them were good looking. Rokia was really good looking. Ilana and Othman was actually quite good looking was very handsome. And on the night of their wedding, people used to say they made poetry about him saying the two good looking couple.
When real Clara de la Juan had died. It was after the Battle of brothers
and it broke Medina's heart, you know.
And he didn't join the battle of better because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told him you have to look after a player go and nurse her.
When your wife is sick,
nurse her look after.
And he looked after it didn't even get her a bottle of butter. It was more important to look after his wife's well being and sickness.
When the Prophet peace be upon him returned Rokia died after a few days, and Iceman and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was so sad and he was really saddened for her loss. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave him on McKesson.
He married him who could soon
in time passed
on mocha thumb also died.
And ostinato the lion was left without a wife again.
So he married someone else and he could never forget his two beautiful wives. He was called the neuron, the man of the two lights.
There came a time when the Muslims had to fight
an Eastern Roman Empire from a sham.
It was called the the the Battle of the book. And it was called the expedition of Basra the army of the Muslims were in terrible state. They needed wealth and even horses, they needed. Cavalry, they needed armor, everything. They needed weapons. So there was a call to help. Abubakar Delano came and he gave all of his wealth, which was only a little bit it was carrying on top of his shoulders. O'Meara Delano comes along and he said, Yes, our workers only got a little bit this time this I'm going to beat him. So he brought half of his wealth and the bag was a little bit bigger than our bucket, his bag. He said, Today I'm going to beat him. When he reached the Prophet sallallahu
sallam, he found that a worker hadn't left anything for his family. And Mirjana took half of his wealth. So that's when Homer Don Who said I wish I was a hair on the chest of abubaker. At least, but also man of the alarm line who came along and he donated 100 plus 100 plus 100 plus 100. But up to 900 camera loads of stuff. Then he added on top of that 90 horses then 700 gold coins, followed by 10,000 silver coins.
Man that that is a lot of money. We're talking about hundreds of 1000s of dollars, maybe a million dollars, pounds.
We say dollars in Australia, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Madoff man Matha all about the neon, nothing that was man does after today is going to harm him. And he said it three times.
As a matter of the long run also bought something called the well of Roma, not Rome, as in Rome, there was a German
man named something Roma and he sold this one and Muslims are in need of water in Medina they had no other water there was this big Well, that was that was there and no one could buy it. So as a matter of the line who bought it for $38,000 homes, again it's something like saying 100 100,000 pounds or something like that. He bought it for the Muslims and the prophets Allah sent him because he said, Man half or a bit Roma fella hogen whoever buys the well of Roma, then he will have paradise and that was fourth metal the alarm you know what brothers and sisters till today that well of Roma is still existing in Saudi Arabia. And there is a bank that's a trustee just for the matter of the
Allahu anhu half of it goes to the poor every year and half of it goes into the investment or the assets of under the number of men on the line and they use it to develop and to look after orphans and and other people like that till today. This is a southern kajaria ongoing charity from the lohana till today
