00:00:08--> 00:00:17

Today at school we were praying a little bit of prayer in the students that were a bit cold outside because we had to pray that God's spirits called for Salette. I said to them Jahannam is colder.

00:00:20--> 00:00:40

And they said to me, so you're such a quirky person I said, Yeah, quirky is my second name. John M is called you know, there is some hidden Johanna Would you believe that? Johanna has hot and has cold and the cold is so cold that it burns. That Isla Khaled called Zim head here. So I wasn't Yanni making fun of

00:00:42--> 00:00:57

my brothers and sisters Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. So last week, we finished off lesson number five and we completed the biography of the great Khalifa Abu Bakr, Siddiq, Radi Allahu Anhu.

00:00:59--> 00:01:03

And just to recap very quickly towards the end of his life, and we'll transition to this one.

00:01:05--> 00:01:09

So I will work it out the Allahu Anhu had ruled as a Khalifa

00:01:10--> 00:01:21

or had been a Khalifa maybe the proper word is not ruled, but he was entrusted with the Khilafah for almost two years, just two years Subhanallah

00:01:22--> 00:01:27

and the types of people he led needed a person like him.

00:01:29--> 00:01:40

And when those two years were over, it seemed that people who are now ready for a transition for somebody who was a little bit different in his mindset and approach,

00:01:41--> 00:01:51

especially that in the time of Abu Bakr, Radi Allahu Anhu. For the first time, the Muslim ummah had spread outside of Arabia.

00:01:53--> 00:02:00

And they had just reached the Romans who had occupied the lands of the Arabs that were once for the Arabs in Syria.

00:02:01--> 00:02:06

Syria, those days was different to the Syria today it was it's known as the greatest Syria.

00:02:08--> 00:02:17

Another name for his trans Jordan. But they were a combination of Lebanon, Syria today, Palestine, a bit of Jordan, a sham

00:02:18--> 00:02:22

and it was occupied by the Byzantines, the ancient Romans

00:02:24--> 00:02:34

and the great Harley Davidson Waleed, the great commander, the one whom the history has never seen a commander in general like from him, even non Muslims today

00:02:35--> 00:02:39

have written and learn from his strategies of combat and war.

00:02:41--> 00:02:56

He was assigned as the commander in general by Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu. Because Abu Bakr the alarm used to call him the unsheathed sword of Allah. That's what the Prophet sallallahu Sallam called him safe Allah Hilmar slewed the unsheath sort of Allah.

00:02:57--> 00:03:07

And he put him as a commander, and that's by the will of Allah opened the entire world. For the Muslims. Of course, the muscles did not just go and attack.

00:03:08--> 00:03:14

Allah says, Allah does not Allah says, fight them as they fight you but do not transgress.

00:03:15--> 00:03:19

But it was a necessary battle between them and the people outside because they were a threat.

00:03:21--> 00:03:27

And there's something in warfare today, which is legal. And it's always been legal. It's called preemptive strike.

00:03:28--> 00:03:49

A person can do preemptive strikes. It's international law. And it's an Islamic law from the beginning, when there is a real and direct perceived threat that is real from the enemy, and they refuse to make a truce with you. The Persians and the Romans had become a threat because he started the time of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam was continuing.

00:03:51--> 00:04:11

So the battle continued, and Khalid bin Walid, by the will of Allah had led the armies and conquered the first half of what Muslims had conquered. In the next few years, Muslims reached from what is equivalent from Spain, to China,

00:04:13--> 00:04:14

nearly a third of the world.

00:04:16--> 00:04:38

And the way they spread was in the beginning with through conquests for a short time, and then through trade, through missionaries, through integration and migration. But the best way was through Dawa. They used to go and speak about Islam, and they used to interact with them in their trade and business and live among them, and show them what Islam teaches them of how they get along with people.

00:04:39--> 00:04:58

Muslims and Islam welcomed people of different religions that lived under the Islamic empire, and they were given their entire rights and autonomy. They had their own churches, their synagogues, they even had their own courts, which they had to govern by their Bible or the Torah. For example,

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

and they were allowed if they drank alcohol to drink alcohol and wine within their territories that were designated.

00:05:08--> 00:05:17

So the Muslims gave them enormous rights, and then we'll call them Miyun, which means those entrusted under Islamic empire to the Muslims.

00:05:18--> 00:05:23

And they had rights like everyone else, but including rights of their religious laws.

00:05:27--> 00:05:33

And they had to pay however, something called the jizya. It's similar to a tax system, but not exactly like the tax we know.

00:05:34--> 00:05:37

It's designated, it's only a very small amount.

00:05:38--> 00:05:41

And in return, they give them their safety and security.

00:05:43--> 00:05:48

It was necessary that they take this tax from them because the non Muslims were not obliged to pay zakat.

00:05:50--> 00:05:54

The Muslims, however, are obliged by Allah to pay zakat.

00:05:55--> 00:06:10

So the muscles are paying zakat. And I consider an honorable thing. And it's an act of worship and a non Muslims living under treaty and truce not a treaty sorry, as citizens under the Islamic empire paid as Jizya which is another form of tax.

00:06:12--> 00:06:13

And with that Jizya

00:06:16--> 00:06:35

the Muslim government used it to support them and to develop their roads and help them maintain themselves. They went back into him Yanni went back into the non Muslims lands and the non non Muslims territories are not territories, maybe the non Muslims residence in the Islamic empire.

00:06:39--> 00:06:47

This I'm saying this because some people they may trick you to say they hear the word Jizya because most people throw social media.

00:06:49--> 00:07:11

For fanatics that just listen to what social media says. They listen to little bits and pieces, they don't know what Jizya is. So you're gonna need to equip yourself with knowledge my brothers and sisters at GCU as a tax system for the non Muslims who live under the Islamic empire as citizens, they have rights and autonomy and they get to practice their religion, Nobody's allowed to touch their places of worship in Muslim lands.

00:07:12--> 00:07:20

And instead of paying the care touches upon the Muslims, they pay taxes, and those taxes go back for them. The government uses the managers and for them

00:07:22--> 00:07:55

so my brothers and sisters, the non Muslims lived in harmony and peace among them. And they advanced more than what they used to have advanced before Islam came into their lives. In fact, every time Harlan Walid and the tango Boca Delano, they conquered lands, the citizens there, most of them were Arabs and some of the Byzantines the ancient Romans found how trustworthy and honest and and kind and merciful these Muslims were, that they were happier under their rule than ever before. The books are full of history books are full of these these statements but unfortunately

00:07:57--> 00:08:05

in the Western world, you don't study the history from an Islamic perspective. Here we are, we try to teach the other side inshallah we we should look at all sides

00:08:06--> 00:08:14

and be non biased to any any approach. So my brothers and sisters towards the end of the life of Abu Bakr, the Allah one knows he ruled injustice, fairness and kindness.

00:08:15--> 00:08:32

He became ill and sick as I said last week in the last lesson, lesson number five. And now he had to appoint or manage appointing a new leader for the Muslims. He can't just leave them like that, the Khalifa has to bring up another Khalifa.

00:08:34--> 00:08:45

It could have been done in so many ways. And from here we learned the first method of how a Khalifa can be appointed. But this method is off there is already a Khalifa in place.

00:08:47--> 00:08:59

No Khalifa can be appointed without an advisory council. There has to be what we call in the Quran, Allah called Shura. Shura is an advisory council.

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

They elect and so people elect and select representatives, honorable representative among them, they could be chiefs they could be

00:09:09--> 00:09:25

learned people or the each sometimes each tribe picks them if they play with tribes, each municipality, each suburb whatever it is, they choose representatives, similar to when you choose MPs, members of parliament and they represent different areas similar

00:09:27--> 00:09:46

and this advisory council was made up of a few people, Abu Bakr, the Allah and when he found himself ill and sick. He started calling the nobleman the men when we say noble men, meaning the men who were the were the most respected and loved and honored by the entire Muslim community that were very known. So among them

00:09:47--> 00:09:48

he called

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

us man Osmond, Radi Allahu Anhu. Everybody loved us man knew how important he was. And he said the house man. I'm thinking of nominating

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

Omar the Allahu Anhu to be the Khalifa after me.

00:10:04--> 00:10:07

I want to take your advice, what do you think of him?

00:10:08--> 00:10:12

And with matter the Allah one who said, Oh Abu Bakr, you are the most knowledgeable among us.

00:10:13--> 00:10:15

And I say what you say?

00:10:17--> 00:10:24

He said, doesn't matter, but I still want to hear your opinion. And also matter the Allahu Anhu said to him, Well, Allah He,

00:10:25--> 00:10:30

I know of him only good. His private affairs, his secrecy

00:10:31--> 00:10:50

is far better than even what you see of him in public. Meaning he is so sincere and feels Allah in private, he will not oppress anybody, even if he's alone and nobody can nobody sees because you know, not many people are righteous when they're alone when they're in private. But he was he was more righteous in private than he was in public.

00:10:52--> 00:11:06

And I recommend him and he said, Rahim, Allah thank you all summer and may Allah have mercy on you. Then he said to another companion. I'll drop off another great companion from the early Maharaja in the migrants.

00:11:07--> 00:11:12

What do you think? He said, I think your choice is marvelous Abu Bakr

00:11:14--> 00:11:29

then he called earlier the Allahu Anhu. Yeah. Hi, Lee. What do you think of Omar? He said, Well, Allah hiya Ameerul Momineen he is among the best of us. And He is the one whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, Omar,

00:11:30--> 00:11:40

if you seek a path, and the shaitan knew where he will go to another path because he fears him. And anybody who doesn't say that anybody who thinks the Homer is not among the best of us is a hypocrite.

00:11:42--> 00:12:04

And he kept asking many of the great companions that everybody knows, until finally he got all their advice, no all one word. Then he came out to the people. And he said among them, there was about 100 or so people who said oh people these were the most important around mysteries of the prophets, Allah Selim, I have selected Omar What do you think? Do you agree with him and they all said with one word we all accept him? Yeah.

00:12:05--> 00:12:21

So my brothers sisters in the tug of war, but it was very easy to elect the next Khalifa it didn't have to have this huge thing going around the world. And it was enough and hamdulillah among the best of the best of the companions will all situated in Medina, none of them had been outside, except Haagen Walid at that time.

00:12:22--> 00:12:51

And all the Muslims agreed. That's it, who can go against them or hygiene and the answer? These were the migrants who migrated with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam from Mecca to Medina before his death. And now the unsought who welcomed the Prophet and you know, the ones with Balabhadra, Elena Donsol, nobody would oppose them. And so the election of Amara, the Allahu Anhu was done by nomination of Abu Bakr the Allahu Anhu his choice, but only after it was established after he had gotten the advice of everybody.

00:12:52--> 00:12:53

So it was not just a one man show.

00:12:55--> 00:13:12

And so on. What are the Allah Han who refused it? But Abu Bakr the Alon who forced him until he accepted it. And Amara, the Allahu Anhu stood up and he said his famous statement to the people at Masjid Nabawi he said in his first sermon addressing the people,

00:13:13--> 00:13:17

Oh Allah, I am harsh, so make me lenient?

00:13:19--> 00:13:33

Why did he say that? Because I'm gonna the Alon was known for his harshness. He was harsh, rough and tough, and we're gonna talk about his life. I'm just saying, when he was elected, I'm gonna go back to his childhood now and reach up to this point and into the next lesson, inshallah.

00:13:34--> 00:13:51

People used to call him harsh, even after he was elected, I will go to the law and return back inside another man came in and he said to him, Don't you fear Allah aboubaker choosing this harsh man against the people? What are you going to say to Allah? And he was very sick, they put him up. And he said to them, are you telling me to fear Allah?

00:13:52--> 00:14:34

Are you telling me to fear Allah because if something were to I'm calling to for justice, I will say to Allah, Oh Allah, I chose a person who is just in good for the people to the best of my ability. Anyway, Amara, the Allahu Anhu then got up after he was elected and after the death of Abu Bakr, Radi Allahu Anhu and Rob Walker, the Alana was buried next to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam after seeking permission from each of the Allahu Ana. He said, Oh Allah, I am harsh, so make me lenient, I am weak, so strengthen me. I am greedy, so make me generous. Allah has put me as a trial upon you and you as a trial upon me after my companion aboubaker Your complaint to me will be heard and my

00:14:34--> 00:14:59

judgment for you will not be overridden, or stopped by anyone else. If I take anyone's right, this is my cheek. I will place it on the floor for you to step on it until I have given you your right back. If I arrived, make a mistake and go off the path of Allah's book and His Messenger, then stop me and prevent me. You are to me a responsibility like orphans

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

which I am responsible for. In other words, I'm gonna be Allah one had chosen compassion and care. So aboubaker before him was soft compassion and care when he became the LFA became firm and harsh. When things settled, they needed somebody to return back. That softness and compassion and you had to come from WHO? From the harshest man among them on what are the Allahu Allah and this shows you my dear brothers and sisters, hell, for the sake of Allah, you can tame your behavior.

00:15:30--> 00:15:54

You're a husband, you're upset with your wife. Remember she is a trust given to you by Allah. Be patient. You have a husband. Remember he is a gift to you from Allah. How would you treat the gift that Allah has given you? For the sake of Allah, we contain our behavior for the sake of Allah only a person can restrain their anger in sha Allah.

00:15:55--> 00:16:13

My brothers and sisters, now I will go back to the beginning of the life of Abu Bakr Omar Radi Allahu Anhu. Now that I have introduced to you, where we left off from the end of the life of Abu Bakr, Amara, the Alana takes the stand. And now let's go back and talk about who this man really is.

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

So let us begin.

00:16:17--> 00:16:48

His name is Omar, his father's name is Bob. The Prophet peace be upon him Mr. Sometimes call him Omar. Sometimes he would call him ignore Bob, son of a lot Bob. And whenever he called him YBNL Bob Rasul, Allah Salem was impressed by something he did, or something that he represents. So it's a friendly way, but whenever he said, Omar, it either meant he was gonna give him an advice, or is calling him for a mission, or he's upset with him about something.

00:16:51--> 00:17:08

Cutting the story short on what Adela? You guys won't be interested in all the tribal names and everything that's in the past. Even if I said them to you, you probably forget it. He belonged to a noble tribe among the tribes of the Qureshi respected so he was among the people who were what we would call today in terms of elites. This is before Islam.

00:17:09--> 00:17:16

His father was a harsh man and greedy, and in fact, he didn't have a good relationship with his father but he respected him anyway just because he had to.

00:17:17--> 00:17:22

And Amara, the Allahu Anhu. He was highly respected.

00:17:24--> 00:17:32

He was an excellent public speaker. And one of the most important things about him he was an excellent wrestler. He knew martial arts.

00:17:33--> 00:17:56

I don't know if they were called martial arts at that time, but he was he was a wrestler. And he knew combat he knew how to use weaponry. And nobody did to mess with him, the only one who matched him in strength and wrestling, who sometimes would beat him and he would beat him is highlighted an invalid or the Allahu Anhu. There will always competency they will always combatant against each other.

00:17:57--> 00:18:02

And some people assume that Omar and Khalid had had a grudge for each other but they didn't I was a villa.

00:18:04--> 00:18:08

But before Islam, they were they saw us compete.

00:18:09--> 00:18:11

Amara they Allahu Anhu

00:18:12--> 00:18:16

he married in his entire life nine wives

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

there's nothing about the number nine just in during his entire life that got up to nine Some died to deal with I went joint nine in one go. Not allowed to marry nine in one go but in his lifetime before is slim enough to slim. They ended up being nine wives. Most of them were either widows, or divorcees.

00:18:37--> 00:18:56

He had 12 Children, eight boys for gills if you want to know their names Abdullah Hafsa obey the law. Awesome. Zaid Rocha a yet Abdul Rahman, Zainab zubaid, Fatima and Abdul Rahman number two. So you can name your children again, if you like. But you'll just mix them up. I'd recommend both of them. Okay.

00:18:58--> 00:19:14

I did that to my father once in Lebanon. Actually, my uncle did it, of standing with him and it was three guys named her mother's name is Heather. They were talking to each other. My uncle is a bit of a joke. He goes, watch, watch what I'm going to do to him. Yes, hello. All three of them replied. If you want to do that. It's a nice little trick.

00:19:15--> 00:19:18

You got to be a dad like me because they called dad jokes.

00:19:20--> 00:19:21

My brothers and sisters.

00:19:24--> 00:19:48

He was called the ambassador of Quraysh. However, it was an important position because all the Arabs got along the non Muslims. They got along in a way that everyone had their own pride, but they kind of were at peace. So they didn't really need an ambassador. When I say they got along, it means the big elites, they had a kind of a relationship. They were all in it together on false you know, because

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

you know, when you have people who are doing the wrong they will get along with other people doing the wrong. You basically scratch each other's backs. He had an unusual courage here.

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

Sharp witted. He's frankness he wore his heart on his sleeve man he did not he was not a fake person. What he said it was precise. He did not muck around. So firm he wore his heart on his sleeve. If you said something he meant to wholeheartedly, and he did not care what you thought. If he promised something, he was going to do it, you'd have to kill him. You'd have to kill him. He will do it. Even if it ended up being wrong. If he says, I will kill you, you're dead.

00:20:29--> 00:20:44

He will never back off back off his word. Now that's not a good trait of a man. Brothers and sisters don't take this as a good trait. Because after he became a Muslim, he would ask for forgiveness. And he would backtrack and fix that's a real man and a Muslim.

00:20:47--> 00:21:01

Oh my god, the Allahu Anhu earned his respect to the trade. When he went to Syria. He was street smart. He was people smart. He could read you like the back of his hand. You can't trick him. Very sharp witted, honorable hip hop.

00:21:04--> 00:21:05

But he was very harsh and strict.

00:21:07--> 00:21:19

He was 12 years younger than the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And he was about 27 years old. When the prophets Allah Salam came out as a prophet. To describe his features. He was extra tall.

00:21:20--> 00:21:25

I would give him a meter 90 Or maybe 188 centimeters.

00:21:26--> 00:21:35

He was built and strong, solid muscley. Very big voice. Yanni when he spoke.

00:21:37--> 00:21:41

It's like a microphone. He'll whisper and you hear him at the end of the Masjid.

00:21:43--> 00:21:47

He was bold, lost his hair. But he had hair everywhere else.

00:21:49--> 00:21:51

And he was red hit. He was a redhead.

00:21:53--> 00:21:56

And what have you heard of him? He grew along to his shoulders.

00:21:58--> 00:22:04

His skin was whitish Caucasian skin because he had redness in his face was red hair, as I said.

00:22:06--> 00:22:12

And he's here always dangled as I said, sometimes he would braid it. That was on top of the hola Juan.

00:22:14--> 00:22:37

His relationship to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Abu Bakr was that the Prophet peace be upon him married his daughter Hafsa for the Allah Juana and Omar married Abu Bakr sons widowed wife, Abu Bakr and had a son named Abdullah and there's a long story about it. We don't have time to talk about it, but he was a they were they were they have a romantic story.

00:22:38--> 00:22:46

Romeo and Juliet has nothing is nothing compared to the son of Abdullah and son of Abu Bakr Abdullah and his wife.

00:22:47--> 00:23:05

And this particular wife of Abdullah, the son of Abu Bakar. They used to used to write poetry to him, he wrote poetry to her. And it came a time when Abdullah even missed out on Juma prayer because he was on a honeymoon stage with his wife and his father told him

00:23:06--> 00:23:40

you have to leave your wife because she can't stop you from your Salat. And then he separated from and started crying and Abu Bakr felt sorry for him so he said return but don't forget your deen if your deen is gone your marriage your life is gone. And he was martyred are the Allahu Anhu and his wife wrote a poem she says in some eloquent words I will never marry anyone after you my love you are the end and that's it. I will die and you will be my husband and Jana and all of that stuff. After her I there was over three menstrual cycles on my laptop came and asked for her in marriage and she said yes.

00:23:43--> 00:24:23

And earlier the Allahu Anhu. Ali, before they did the Catholic tab, the contract of marriage. He comes in early to Delano. And he says to Omar Delano Jamar, if you give me permission before he America, can I say a few words to her, said Go ahead. And then he reminded her here he said a few sentences of her own poetry. I will never marry anyone after you and my love and in Jana we meet. She just put her head down. What can she say? So she became the wife of Amara, the Allah and I just cut the story short. I could have made it much nicer but we're not talking romance here. We're talking about home what are the Allahu Anhu you ain't gonna hear a romantic story from Omar.

00:24:25--> 00:24:27

So now we move on.

00:24:29--> 00:24:39

We all said that one of the Alana always disagreed with a book. Some of the first things when so as he grew up, but let's move on to his childhood Subhan Allah SubhanAllah.

00:24:44--> 00:24:46

A worker Amara, the Allahu Anhu.

00:24:47--> 00:24:54

Actually I want to talk a bit about his traits. Just to give you a good idea of what he was like when he did become a Muslim as well.

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

So he is the one whom the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said

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

Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim

00:25:04--> 00:25:22

that if there was a prophet after me it would have been Omar from Salah Salem he said Logan and a BM embody Luca now Omar if there was a prophet after me would have been Omar but there is no prophet after me and he said I am the sealable the prophets I am the last the end

00:25:26--> 00:25:36

and one time but also Salah Salem was walking with Omar Ahmed was walking with him. And he said Your Honor, you will never enter paradise until I am more beloved to your heart.

00:25:39--> 00:25:46

Then everything and Amara, the Alana said the Rasul Allah, I love you more than everything except myself.

00:25:47--> 00:25:51

Remember when I told you he's very frank? He said, Les Omar.

00:25:52--> 00:26:06

Not until I'm mobile up to you than yourself. Why? Because I'm the Messenger of Allah. You're not loving me as a person you loving me as a messenger of Allah more than yourself. So Omar then stopped and thought about it for a few for a little moment. And then he goes,

00:26:08--> 00:26:10

You're a Salah, now I love you more than myself. He says what changed?

00:26:12--> 00:26:18

He said, I thought about my habits and my character, and I thought about yours. And every character I had you were better than me.

00:26:20--> 00:26:25

So how can I love myself more than you, there's things I hate about myself. There's nothing I Hate About You.

00:26:26--> 00:26:33

I love him more than myself. He said, Omar, now you have reached true piety

00:26:34--> 00:26:36

that you love the messenger of Allah more than yourself.

00:26:37--> 00:26:47

Allah did say in the Quran, when Allah Allah was him to the Messenger of Allah, He said, You are on the best of character. Allah didn't say that to anyone else. And you want to love yourself more than that.

00:26:49--> 00:26:52

So that's how homily Alana thought about it, the Messenger of Allah is something else.

00:26:54--> 00:27:23

And subhanAllah here's a funny story about just so you can understand the character of Omar, it did not change from when he was a disbeliever to when he was a believer. But what he did with it was he just channeled, he channeled his outrageous character into a good direction. You know, brothers and sisters, some of us were born with certain personalities that you can't get rid of. You're literally born like that some of us are Genet, we inherited.

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

And that's why when a mother breastfeeds a child,

00:27:30--> 00:27:31

the child

00:27:33--> 00:27:44

takes in some of the genetics that come with the milk in the beginning of their birth from the mother, and they take some of the mothers and fathers traits, even of behavior, and you can break that cycle and your genetics will change.

00:27:45--> 00:28:23

And this was a scientific fact, by the way in biology, but there was also a Selim also said that he said you there are many Hadith about it. And on one of the Allahu Anhu he inherited certain traits and he had them but he couldn't change them when he became a Muslim. Instead, some of them he channeled them so if he got angry he channeled his anger towards good if he cried he cried towards good like that. And that's how all the companions did run the system. That's what we can do. You have a problem with certain characters that you have, try and work at Channel it towards the direction that you can benefit a lot.

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

Use your anger in a way that develops and makes things better inshallah.

00:28:29--> 00:28:36

I remember once I got angry, and stressed I couldn't sleep the night I went on YouTube and learned how to build a pergola not a pergola is

00:28:38--> 00:28:57

that's where I released my energy and anger and had a pergola with 10 grand which I built $2,000 Well, like everyone who saw it, they go, who's the guy who built it, I said me, they said you can do anything. But the thing is, I was angry. And I'm not always angry. If I got angry measurement, I can build that. So you guys can channel your emotions in sha Allah in the right direction.

00:28:59--> 00:29:26

This is a good form of training and it needs another course on its own one time and also SallAllahu Sallam on this beautiful about the Prophet peace be upon him. He was very compassionate to the women. And he looked after their affairs and made sure that they also got what the men got. And that is knowledge and understanding. And they had their right to worship He even used to say don't prevent the women the servants of Allah from the man from the houses of Allah. And if they want to go to the masjid in the night, let them go.

00:29:27--> 00:29:47

So, the women asked the Prophet Allah send them that they wanted lessons from him directly. They want to ask him questions, give them time in the week so they can sit down and they can learn from him directly without the presence of the men and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave them that he used to meet with them several times a week. So one time and the Hadith by the way, is in Sahara body this one.

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

It's in Sahih Bukhari Hadith number 3683. Amara, the Allahu Anhu then comes in, asks, doesn't know that the Prophet said I was giving a listen to the women

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

And he asked permission to enter

00:30:04--> 00:30:10

as he was about to and as he asked permission to enter, Alma Delano overheard the women.

00:30:13--> 00:30:15

They were getting comfortable

00:30:17--> 00:30:26

with talking over the Prophet salaallah salams voice, they talked over him. They didn't deliberately do that out of disrespect, but they were excited.

00:30:27--> 00:30:30

And lots of women would ask questions at the same time.

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

So boubakeur got upset about that. He said, the overwhelming him. This is disrespect. This is to him. But wasn't to the Prophet peace be upon him here. He understood he gave reasons and excuses. When I heard on one of the hola Juan was voice.

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

Then okay, rasool Allah, give me permission, a messenger of Allah, obviously five times bigger than my voice. The women heard him they all went dead silent.

00:30:58--> 00:31:02

And they raced behind the screen and hid behind it.

00:31:04--> 00:31:10

The Prophet peace be upon him, said NTR Omar, and Ramadan have found the Prophet peace be upon him laughing.

00:31:11--> 00:31:12

He said, Yeah.

00:31:13--> 00:31:19

Let's go on going on. Look, you entered and you scared the women off. And then Omar said

00:31:21--> 00:31:32

they're afraid of me. But they don't fear you. You have more right to be respected and feared than me. Yeah, Rasul Allah, look at them talking over your voice. I got angry at that.

00:31:33--> 00:31:37

And that also Asalaam kept laughing and said he knew Omar

00:31:38--> 00:31:46

now he said E Hindi Abdullah Baba and I told you you called him nice. It's like saying, you son of a gun like that. And you have no football up.

00:31:49--> 00:32:11

Well, let the NF cvrd him Allah creo que shaitan Hussain Ali convergeone Cotton Illa Salah Kapha genera Euro Frederick. I swear by Almighty Allah who possesses my soul in his hand, there isn't a pathway that you choose to walk on. And the shaitan sees it except the shaitan goes and chooses another pathway. He will not walk in the place you are walking the shaitan is afraid of him.

00:32:13--> 00:32:28

And our salon after becoming a Muslim, he used to cry a lot. He became compassion when the Prophet is to tell him that he started weeping. He said Dr. Rasool Allah, you are the one to deserve the ultimate respect but also I said to him, he understood and gave way to people he was compassionate.

00:32:29--> 00:32:30

One time

00:32:33--> 00:32:38

one time and this hadith in Sahih, Muslim Hadith number 1479.

00:32:40--> 00:32:42

Honorable hottub enters.

00:32:43--> 00:32:49

He asked permission to enter upon the prophets Allah salams house for the first time we went to visit him.

00:32:50--> 00:32:53

The Prophet gave him permission on what are the Allahu Anhu entered.

00:32:55--> 00:33:03

He was happy and smiling. Amara Delano sat down and the proverb is the one who was lying down on his bed.

00:33:04--> 00:33:10

Then he set up Roscoe Salah Salem was lying on his bed, and then he set up.

00:33:12--> 00:33:14

His bed was on the floor.

00:33:16--> 00:33:19

It was a layer of straw.

00:33:21--> 00:33:24

One layer. That's it. That was his bid.

00:33:25--> 00:33:28

And when the Prophet SAW Selim set up

00:33:29--> 00:33:37

one of the Allahu Anhu smile looked away at faded away and he started to cry. Omar started to cry.

00:33:39--> 00:33:44

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him may have Kike Yama, what is making you cry Yama

00:33:46--> 00:33:47

and he said

00:33:51--> 00:33:52

Ya rasool Allah,

00:33:53--> 00:33:55

I looked around in your house.

00:33:57--> 00:33:59

You have a straw man, that's only one layer.

00:34:01--> 00:34:05

You got up and I can see the marks over on the side of your body.

00:34:06--> 00:34:10

Looks like he was wearing a short sleeve and can see the marks of your story. Is this your bed?

00:34:12--> 00:34:20

said I looked at your pillow. It's got rough, coarse leaves and stuff in there. I can see its mark on your cheeks here rasool Allah

00:34:23--> 00:34:35

He said, I looked at the prophets cupboard. And I saw a handful of barley in a small amount, the same of Mimosa leaves in the corner, and the leather bag hanging to the side.

00:34:36--> 00:34:38

My eyes started to tear up.

00:34:40--> 00:34:42

And I said, Oh prophet of Allah.

00:34:43--> 00:34:59

Why should I not cry that this mat has lift marks on your side and I see little in this cupboard, Caesar and Cosmo meaning the the Emperor of Rome and the Emperor of Persia. live among fruit

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

Since spring's while you are the Messenger of Allah, and he has chosen you

00:35:06--> 00:35:09

will enter if he had and this is your state.

00:35:11--> 00:35:13

The Prophet sallallaahu Selim den said

00:35:14--> 00:35:17

he had not heard pop, Sandoval hubub

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

Allah you will DECA and Allah Homewood dunya Well, Anil,

00:35:24--> 00:35:33

are you not pleased that they are for us in the hereafter and for them only in this world. I said, of course, messenger of Allah.

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

And this was the same thing that Omar the Allahu anhu, practiced when he became the Khalifa.

00:35:40--> 00:35:50

He would refuse to sleep on more than one mattress layer of straws, or a coarse pillar. And there came a time when the Muslims were hungry

00:35:51--> 00:35:52

because of a drought,

00:35:53--> 00:36:01

and he refused to eat food so long as there are there was one hungry person in the city. He would rather resort to

00:36:02--> 00:36:04

bread, stale bread,

00:36:05--> 00:36:09

and olive oil, he'd dip it and ate it until his stomach hurt.

00:36:11--> 00:36:12

And his daughter Hafsa

00:36:15--> 00:36:21

are the Allah Juana and Aisha Radi Allahu Ana, they used to say to him yet many in

00:36:23--> 00:36:32

don't go like that. Your clothing a patched up it's embarrassing at least let's look like we look after our leader.

00:36:33--> 00:36:45

And he reminded them about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said to her yeah Isha. Yeah half so my daughter, didn't you tell me one time it was also SLM went three days without food or water without food.

00:36:46--> 00:37:09

Didn't you tell me one time Rasul Salah Salem you could not find for one week anything in his house except water and dates. Didn't you remind me that this and that and until that we'll start at the Christ city as he says, I will not touch anything until the people in the citizens have eaten and drunk and I will not do more than that. I am not better than the messenger SallAllahu wasallam. So my brothers and sisters on top is something else.

00:37:15--> 00:37:17

So back to when he was a non Muslim.

00:37:19--> 00:37:22

It was that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to the Kaaba one day,

00:37:24--> 00:37:27

the Kaaba. And it was the message of Islam that was still new.

00:37:28--> 00:37:32

And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam made a dua to Allah.

00:37:33--> 00:37:34

He said,

00:37:35--> 00:37:40

Oh, Lord, make Islam strong. With either of the two men

00:37:42--> 00:37:44

Abu Jahan or Hamas? Top

00:37:46--> 00:38:02

Abuja his name was armoured nation and there was Omar and sometimes he would say Allahu Allah Azza Islam a bit headed on moraine. Oh, Allah brings strings to Islam with one of these two humps Abuja who is the greatest staunch enemy against the prophets, Allah salah, and Omar.

00:38:04--> 00:38:09

And Allah chose Omar Radi Allahu Anhu. Because something inside of Ahmed his heart

00:38:10--> 00:38:50

made him deserve the guidance. Brothers and sisters, you might be asking, Why would God choose? Does that mean that God chose me to be a Muslim? If you remember I gave a talk for lessons about cobalt uncovered. Do you remember those those lessons you came and we explained what it means when God guides you? It means when Allah sees you, I want you remember this principle. When Allah knows that in your heart, there is a tiny area that is open to guidance. The moment you show the tiniest willingness, Allah will set the guidance and let you see it. But if there is not in your heart, or maybe there could be but you never have shown willingness, Allah will not show you the guidance, you

00:38:50--> 00:38:53

cannot see it. You have to make the choice first.

00:38:54--> 00:39:30

Some of you have come in here and said I've come here to learn I want to learn about the deen. Allah sees in your heart, a willingness and watch the guidance, you start seeing and learning and you realize things that you didn't realize before. But some come in here because they have bad intentions. That person will not see the guidance of what we are talking about. They cannot because their intention wasn't right. And Allah will not let a person like that see the guidance because you've blinded yourself. Do you understand? So my brothers and sisters had that in his heart? And he was honest, honest. Yes, he said words that hurt people, but he was honest.

00:39:33--> 00:39:36

So I'm going to be Alana was a tyrant before Islam,

00:39:37--> 00:39:42

and everyone who had converted to Islam from his own family, he would trap them,

00:39:44--> 00:39:55

chained them up and whip them men and women. days after days in public in front of everybody. He would say I will not I will start with my own family he would say

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

my own family and everybody feared him tremendously.

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

Ahmed Allahu Anhu. He wronged so many people before.

00:40:05--> 00:40:07

And he was so stubborn

00:40:08--> 00:40:09

that the Arabs agreed.

00:40:11--> 00:40:37

The Arabs agreed that he would be the absolute last person to convert to Islam. Last nobody, in their wildest dreams, Friend or Foe ever crossed their mind that Omar would one day become a Muslim, which tells me a new brothers and sisters. Never judge a person's potential guidance.

00:40:38--> 00:40:48

Every non Muslim is a potential Muslim. Every Muslim who is sinful has potential to repent to Allah do not point your fingers and then play god.

00:40:51--> 00:40:55

How do you know? We don't know. Don't talk in general.

00:40:57--> 00:40:58

My Brothers and Sisters in Islam

00:41:01--> 00:41:06

the story of Omar the Allahu Anhu conversion starts

00:41:08--> 00:41:22

when one day he found out that the Muslims were escaping their hometown, they were escaping Maccha remember the Hijra the migration? And what was the first place they were going to to migrate to Does anyone remember?

00:41:23--> 00:41:26

And haberdasher at say, amo, what is it?

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


00:41:33--> 00:42:06

No, heartless young boy said no. I don't dare to speak anymore. You are right. He went they went to Ethiopia. Abyssinia, and also I saw Mr. Say, and especially the king of, of Ethiopia is a just ruler. He was a Christian, but he was just unfair, and nobody was oppressed. So the Muslims were migrating to them. So among them was a woman by the name of Omar Abdullah been to Abu Hanifa. Not that Abu Hanifa Abu Hanifa, if you know who I'm talking about, that was an old name. And her husband's name was Abu Abdullah. So Omar Abdullah and Abu Abdullah.

00:42:08--> 00:42:16

And what happened with her is that they were trying to get out of Makkah secretly because anybody who caught them, they will trap them. They tried to run away.

00:42:17--> 00:42:30

As she was leaving with Abu Abdullah Abdullah, he wanted to go ahead of her to make sure it's safe. So he went up and there was a hill, and he said, meet me at the hill. They'll make sure the path is clear.

00:42:31--> 00:42:32

As she was going

00:42:35--> 00:42:48

secretly and carefully she he has a big voice behind her. But it was whispering. But it was still big. Who was it? Oh my god. Allahu Anhu. She was so scared.

00:42:50--> 00:42:54

And of all the people why Omar? She thought he's going to trap her. She's gone. She's finished.

00:42:57--> 00:42:58

And he said

00:43:00--> 00:43:04

Illa Anya, Omar Abdullah, where are you going? Omar Abdullah.

00:43:06--> 00:43:14

Now she was scared. But you know how when somebody is trapped, the last resort they have is to try and show some strength. So she turned around and said,

00:43:16--> 00:43:17

I'm leaving.

00:43:19--> 00:43:23

He said, You are leaving us here, Omar Abdullah, but he didn't raise his voice.

00:43:25--> 00:43:34

And in his voice, she noticed there was some softness. She's never heard him like that. That gave her more strength to even go stronger at him.

00:43:36--> 00:43:43

So she said, Yes, Wallah, he will traveling God's land away from your tyranny and your oppression to us.

00:43:44--> 00:43:45

And she stood firmly.

00:43:47--> 00:43:50

Now we're the one who could have grabbed her and just broken her in half. But

00:43:52--> 00:44:02

he looked at her he replies with a face of compassion. He almost cried. And he said, So Hubbard, Casella. May peace be with you.

00:44:04--> 00:44:22

Omar Abdullah says Sheena writes that she says, I saw a kindness from him never seen before and a sadness in his eyes. I had never seen why he was listening to the Quran of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam which had softened his heart over these few years. But he was stubborn.

00:44:23--> 00:44:35

When Omar Abdullah reached her husband, he said, Why were you late? She said, Hamid Maha pop stopped me. He said, are you okay? What happened to you? And she just smiled to her husband and said,

00:44:37--> 00:44:38

If only you saw me

00:44:40--> 00:44:46

If only you saw my just then his face and eyes was said, and he was compassionate.

00:44:47--> 00:44:51

And Abu Abdullah Abdullah said to her, and let me guess.

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

You think that he's going to become a Muslim? She said yes. And he said to her, Omar Abdullah

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

If his donkey became a Muslim, I believe you. And I would never believe you to say that he became a Muslim. His God donkey would become a Muslim and not him.

00:45:11--> 00:45:26

Subhan Allah she said, I don't know, I don't believe you. And they migrated. That was the first sign of the compassion of Amara, the Allahu Anhu. And truly, almost on it was known that it was the Quran that softened his heart. And when the Quran softens your heart you begin to see

00:45:28--> 00:45:38

compassion in front of you. Because Allah did say, fie, he she felt when Lima for Sadat, in the Quran, there is medicine. It cures what is in the hearts.

00:45:40--> 00:45:52

And he said, Well, Marcel Naka Illa Rahmatullah Lemina messenger of God who have sent you as nothing but a mercy to all people. How can a Quran not soften the heart, except for those who want to close it?

00:45:55--> 00:46:03

So my brothers and sisters Hamza, the uncle of the Prophet sallallaahu, Salam had converted three days before that, and Hamza was known to be

00:46:05--> 00:46:17

you know, he was just something else. No, everybody feared him even on what are the Alano feared him. And after his conversion, the non Muslims were so scared that the Muslims are getting more powerful now, because Hamza had become so nobody would dare to mess with him.

00:46:18--> 00:46:19


00:46:20--> 00:46:22

Omar, instead of

00:46:23--> 00:46:32

converting to Islam, because he felt sorry for him, well, Omar Abdullah and the rest, he turned his sorrow and sadness into anger and rage.

00:46:34--> 00:46:49

He goes, he started turning his rage towards Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. He said, Look at this man, he's come up and divided our entire community. And now these poor victims are leaving their home. Why should they have to do that he just looked in the wrong direction.

00:46:50--> 00:46:57

But he wasn't doing anything. He was the one being victimized. He was the one being attacked, because he spoke some words that people didn't like

00:46:58--> 00:47:11

my brothers and sisters. And so he said, I will kill him with my own sword, and let his clan kill me after that. So he looked at as chivalry he looked at as a good deed he thought is doing something good.

00:47:12--> 00:47:20

Now, there are many stories about Almighty Allah knows conversion. And there's the famous story of when he went to Fatima,

00:47:21--> 00:48:02

his sister when he found out she had converted to Islam, I don't know if you know the story. And when you heard the surah Taha and he converted after hearing, surah Taha, and there are other stories about him, but to be honest with you, all of them have weakened aerations in their chain. So they're not strong, reliable, however, because there's so many of them, I will tell you the most famous of the stories that if there is any one of them reliable, this probably would be the most reliable give and take. So the story that their story is go by, is that Amara, the Allahu Anhu took his sword and put it and then he he uncovered his sword. And when the Arabs did that, it meant that

00:48:02--> 00:48:04

he was going to go and kill someone.

00:48:05--> 00:48:09

So as he went by, he passed by one of the

00:48:10--> 00:48:14

one of the men who was respected and he said, Where are you going? Oh my gosh, What?

00:48:16--> 00:48:16


00:48:18--> 00:48:18

What's the word for

00:48:20--> 00:48:22

the walk? I shouldn't say *, Moto.

00:48:23--> 00:48:31

What? Our Haitian safe like I think, yeah. And he said, Where are you going with your sword and shaved? And he said, I'm going to kill that man has divided my clan.

00:48:34--> 00:48:54

And this man had become Muslim in secret, and said to him Well, if you're gonna go and kill him, why don't you go start with your own family? You chivalrous man, your own sister Fatima converted in secret because my sister and then he went straight to his sister's house. The story goes that he knocked on the door heavily. And before he knocked he overheard somebody inside reciting words of the Quran.

00:48:57--> 00:49:37

For them, I looked through the keyhole and she thought it was her brother. Her husband is sad, or the Allahu Anhu. And with them was another component of bad now that's true. A Bab anatra. The Allahu Anhu was among the first companions who memorized from the Quran is to teach it to others. So we're sitting there teaching him how to read the Quran. So she hit him inside. And she came and opened the door for Ahmad and hid the pieces of paper somewhere. Omar entered with the harshness. And he said, What are these words that I heard you speaking? She said nothing, nothing, nothing my brother and I think, and he said, I want to see what you were reading Don't lie to me. And he had a

00:49:37--> 00:49:59

bit of a scuffle with with it with her husband put him to the floor. And then she came towards him to protect the husband and he punched her to the floor, which made her lips bleed. Part of that story is true. And the part of that that's true is that Hamada the Allahu Anhu for the second time, his heart became more compassionate

00:50:00--> 00:50:11

He had never touched his sister in his life, even before Islam, and that day his rage overtook him. And when he saw his sister on the floor, and he had punched her

00:50:13--> 00:50:15

his heart just melted.

00:50:17--> 00:50:59

He said, just just just give me just let me see what you were reading. And fought him uh, since then him his sister. He's just putting on a show like he's angry, but really inside him he wants to read. You know, that type of person just tries to hide their stubbornness, that just to the ego is just too high. But she sensed it. And she said, I'll give it to you. After you go and wash yourself. He said, Why is this because you're a character and the character is too dirty to touch these words. So he went and based he really wants to read them, she got him. And he came and read those verses. Now we know that he read verses which ones in particular we don't know. But as I told you, this is

00:50:59--> 00:51:16

probably the closest to reliability that he read the first parts of sort of Ba, ba MA and Zelina alikhan, Quran analytische call it letters garota, Lima Yaksha. Muhammad We have not sent maybe Tawhai means Muhammad, he said, We have not sent this quarter and down upon you so that you can live a life of misery

00:51:17--> 00:51:22

or to lose, but except the reminder for those whose hearts

00:51:23--> 00:51:26

for those whose hearts fear or softened or want to know.

00:51:29--> 00:51:35

And it goes on beautiful words, which made Ahmed Alon who cry for the first time hearing the Quran.

00:51:37--> 00:51:51

He said take me to the Messenger of God and fought him and sad took him they got someone to take him to Donald Arkham a place where the Muslims were hiding and meeting in secret because people wanted to kill them.

00:51:52--> 00:52:03

He knocked on the door. And this is true here. This is now authentic. From here onwards. He knocked on the door. And they I don't know which companion looked and he saw that it was Omar.

00:52:05--> 00:52:34

He comes back inside and he starts to sort of get scared and he said it's home. Ah, it's Omar. We are finished. We're dead. Rasulillah Salam looks at when Hamza says a few words. He says So open the door. If he tries to harm us, we'll kill him. Hamza was also our Salam smiled and said everybody sit down. It's good news. There was also our Salem went to the door. He opened almost had his hand down. He looked at the proper face, we put in a profit immediately grabs ahold of him so tight,

00:52:35--> 00:53:00

pulls him towards him and he gets off his feet. He literally carries him up and pins him to the wall. And he says to him in staunchness, Anelka and took Minaya and to slimmer Jamar Illa and to see back Acharya is it not time that you embrace Islam, your Omar before something befalls you? I had my dog for him. And he said to Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah rasool Allah, he fell to his knees and he converted.

00:53:01--> 00:53:11

He said, I never felt the strength of the prophets, Allah salam until this day. He was a strong man. He said, I was like, in other words, like a rag doll in front of him, literally shook him apart.

00:53:12--> 00:53:14

Because that's all I needed.

00:53:16--> 00:53:20

That day. And I told Yama is very frank, he doesn't care what people think.

00:53:22--> 00:53:24

doesn't give a damn.

00:53:26--> 00:53:30

And he comes up. So he goes around, he goes,

00:53:32--> 00:54:05

who's the best person? I want to go and tell that I became a Muslim. I want to go to the worst person and he thinks of Abuja had the worst of them all. I was always his uncle. Goes knocks on his door. It was a my nephew goes, didn't you here I became a Muslim. Because he joined the nomads. He said, No, I became a Muslim. He goes, damn you and Damn this day that you came with me get out of my face. So he went laughing. And then he thought he told few people and he goes, You know what, this has taken too much effort. I want everybody to know. And there was a man over there. whose name was

00:54:08--> 00:54:14

what was his name? Anyway, this particular man, he was known to be the snitch of Makkah.

00:54:15--> 00:54:17

You say one thing always snitched?

00:54:19--> 00:54:22

So he goes up to the snitch says is Omar,

00:54:23--> 00:54:27

because Didn't you hear I became Muslim? Because the nomads he was a nun a Muslim.

00:54:29--> 00:54:38

And he just runs off. Within an hour the entire people of Makkah. Come and surround Amara, the Hola, Juan, maybe 100 men.

00:54:40--> 00:54:44

Oh, you left your own religion. You're a loser. You're a low life your whatever.

00:54:45--> 00:54:48

We're going to bless you we're going to kill you. He goes, idea you.

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

And then each man starts rushing at him and he starts to fight them and they're fighting him now. Not everybody rushed at the same time. But he stayed fighting, fighting, fighting probably one two hours.

00:55:00--> 00:55:13

until in the end, he got so tired and he was bloodied everywhere. So he sat to the ground and couldn't get up and then he goes, I gotta get out of this. So he saw one of the oldest men among them, but respected, he grabs him,

00:55:14--> 00:55:19

chokes him and puts his fingers in his eyes and said, I swear I will poke his eyes out

00:55:20--> 00:55:22

and everybody backed off

00:55:24--> 00:55:33

and that's when they allowed him to leave slowly and he managed to get out of there. He went to the prophets Allah Salaam and the Prophet just laughed he just looking at him thinking home and that wasn't the time.

00:55:34--> 00:55:37

And Amara, the Allah know said to him, yeah rasool Allah

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

are we not on the truth? said yes. So it hasn't Allah on the dust Sidious so then why are we hiding still? Let's go out Yeah, Rasul Allah.

00:55:52--> 00:56:02

And Omar had said to those disbelievers who attacked him he said, when you were sitting down with his about to poke the old man's got the man's eyes out, he said,

00:56:04--> 00:56:37

I swear, all we need are 300 Muslim men, and all of you will be annihilated. And subhanAllah he only said it right. But remember, I told you so sharp. That was exactly or close to the amount of men they had in the first battle of butter they had 314 or 315 men and the disbelievers of Croatia would come to kill them to attack them they were 1000 and that was the Battle of better Subhanallah it just happens to coincide and you'll see now with amo Delana everything he says happens to coincide with like it almost knew exactly what will happen.

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

So he said to him, why are we silent? That day, it was also agreed with him. And Hamza Omar and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam led the group of Muslims into Makkah, publicly declaring the shahada without fear for the first time, since the message of the Prophet SAW Selim was revealed.

00:56:59--> 00:57:02

And that was about the sixth year or the fifth year.

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

And what did the disbelievers do? They saw an opportunity to go and annihilate the Muslims. But when I saw Hamza and Omar

00:57:12--> 00:57:19

I think it was already doing leader Autobot, one of the chiefs, he said, Don't

00:57:20--> 00:57:37

any group of people who have Hamza and Omar among them, only a crazy insane person will go and mess with them. Leave them alone. Others they said don't attack them because the rest of the Arab tribes will say, look at you you're attacked weak people you have no nobility because there was a big thing for the Arabs.

00:57:38--> 00:58:08

So my brothers and sisters, that was the day the Prophet sallallahu Sallam called Omar, the famous nickname alpha or alpha Roque was honorable HotJobs. nickname. Abu Bakr was who can remember also the N Omar is now El Faro. Alpha Roque means the divider, the divider between truth and false right and wrong. There are no hypocrites around him.

00:58:09--> 00:58:14

He literally slips right through them and everybody is exposed that's why was called El Faro.

00:58:15--> 00:58:20

Because he was sharp and witty. Nobody could hide the true face.

00:58:21--> 00:58:35

And not and that's how he was as a Khalifa. Everything was black and white. And now when I tell you his story about how he was a Khalifa and how he governed you guys, we're gonna you're gonna say to me, is he is like, is he a human?

00:58:37--> 00:59:18

He went so extreme on himself, and easy on the people. That insha Allah next week, I will talk about his life as the Khalifa of the Muslims. And obviously you all know the story of when Russell SallAllahu Sallam died, and what Alma Delano did, he took the stance, and I talked to you about this in the last lesson. So I'm not going to repeat it again in sha Allah. But you know, he took a very strong stance and aboubaker Put him in place. So the only one who ever put armor in place was Abu Bakr, the Elana or the messenger SallAllahu wasallam. After that, no one else could put him in place except some a couple of weak people in the society who's used the words of ALLAH and he's to humble

00:59:18--> 01:00:00

himself. So inshallah we'll talk about his amazing governance as the Khalifa, how he treated the people, the amazing things that he established that we still have till today. One example is Social Security. You know, when you're jobless, you're unemployed or a single mother or a single father and you don't have a job or whatever. The government obviously gives you. welfare assistance. And this actually started with Amara the Allahu Anhu. No other land and no other people in civilization or at least in that time had this system. It was called bait made in Muslim in Social Security like Centrelink. So I'm gonna Delano established they also established quality control among these

01:00:00--> 01:00:24

Some products and trade, among other beautiful things that Insha Allah, we will be proud in knowing about him next week in sha Allah, Allah Allah, my brothers sisters will stop here in sha Allah, if any of you because I brothers were telling me that you have a lot of questions, and they were asking me if I can have a q&a day. So I said, Look, how about next class? Insha Allah will leave

01:00:25--> 01:00:47

a little bit of time. How much time do we have? Maybe 15 minutes? 10 minutes 935 I think isn't it? What time is it shut here. We said German. Now. We have about 20 minutes. So well. Salalah Hana Vienna, Mohammed while early or sabe Germaine inshallah next week we'll continue lesson number seven in sha Allah Huhtala.

01:00:49--> 01:01:34

I think Bilal, if you have any questions written from last week or this week in sha Allah, and if any of the brothers would like any clarifications now, I'm not a mufti, my knowledge is limited. And if I can know the answer in sha Allah, I'll let you know. If not, I will say I don't know it and Insha Allah, I can go and do some research and seek help from my sheiks and scholars Insha Allah we can come back to you with with answers with Anita Allah, remind me of the question. Oh, dear, okay, brother here is reminding me of a question. If a woman is in during her menstruation, can she sit in the masjid and we had a little bit of a back and forth debate here with some of you.

01:01:35--> 01:01:37

And this is a matter of opinion really.

01:01:40--> 01:01:42

So we said that the

01:01:43--> 01:01:48

top level of this Masjid was intended to be built as a recreational

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

place for for all sorts of services and events. And it was not meant to be part of the the the initial Masjid here. So if that was the intention, and this is what

01:02:03--> 01:02:32

the plans were, and everybody who donated they knew the plans, it was made public, then I I, I am satisfied insha Allah that women during the administration can sit in that section, since it's not the masjid itself. And that's if we follow the opinion of the scholars, which is the majority that a woman in administration should not sit in the in the actual Masjid. There is also a minority opinion that they believe that no, it doesn't apply.

01:02:33--> 01:03:07

doesn't apply if there is a reason for her to go and sit in the masjid. So that's my answer to that insha Allah. And one of the evidences they cite is the authentic hadith I think it's in Sahih Muslim about you should have your Lohana when the prophets Allah wa sallam told her to ask her to go into the masjid and get him something that he had left there and think it was his red blanket, or something like that. And she said to him, I have my menstruation. He said, it's not in your hands. And they met and they gave it a couple of interpretations. Not in your hands means literally your hand has nothing to do with it. You're touching in the masjid. And it's not in your control the

01:03:07--> 01:03:15

other side this is since it's not in your control, why should you be prevented from the mosque? So these are the two opinions the only because what she did, she went in and then came back out.

01:03:16--> 01:03:31

And the other minority opinion was hold the majority opinion is safer not to, but the other opinion is it's not in your hands, meaning it's not in your control. She can go in and sit there if there is a reason Jani. What we did here handling this mystery is that it's separated. So we have a solution and hamdulillah

01:03:33--> 01:03:35

that's all we can say about that.

01:03:36--> 01:03:45

Okay, so another question from our sister says a female makeup artist. What does Islam say about that? My Brothers and Sisters in Islam wearing makeup is Khaled.

01:03:47--> 01:03:51

For a woman wearing makeup is Khaled.

01:03:52--> 01:04:03

Now, I know all of you are thinking or maybe some of you are thinking if he says hello, you think he's gonna go outside in public? That's what you thinking. Wearing makeup is Khaled, but there are conditions to it in Islam.

01:04:05--> 01:04:12

Right. And the type of makeup that we're talking about. Some makeup is not makeup. It's not it doesn't. It doesn't

01:04:13--> 01:04:22

show like for example foundation. Some women have blemishes in their skin. They put something that's the same color as they're seen to cover the blemishes.

01:04:23--> 01:04:24

That's okay.

01:04:25--> 01:04:26

And she can go out in it.

01:04:28--> 01:04:34

But Allah says in the Quran, well, are you Dina Xena Tahuna LML Vihara minha

01:04:35--> 01:04:57

women should cover themselves but not reveal their adornments and decorations except what she has no control over. And another verse what I have been as in a tahona Illa Lebo Allah to him and to not reveal their dominance and decorations except to their husbands. And also to the Muslims. Mahara means people, men who can she can never marry

01:05:00--> 01:05:12

And there is a division there's a divided Tafseer on this particular verse. Some say Illa, Mahara minha whatever appears of her, they meant the face and the hands

01:05:14--> 01:05:19

and they included in the face of the hands that if she was wearing makeup, that's that's okay.

01:05:20--> 01:05:38

But the correct opinion and that's the majority opinion is that if the makeup is so obvious that it enhances, enhances the eyes and enhances the lips, for example, it's particular there, it's the the lips and the eyes, then it is forbidden for a woman to go out with that it's a minor sin

01:05:40--> 01:05:43

and that should be reserved to her husband.

01:05:45--> 01:06:12

Because it is a enhanced, attractive beauty that Allah loves for husband and wives to enjoy. Because it attracts nicely and Allah doesn't want a woman who may create it to share this enhancement and this beauty with other people. Beauty is her modesty. Beauty is your character. Beauty is your hijab beauty is obeying Allah that's where the beauty is.

01:06:13--> 01:06:25

But wearing makeup for a woman is not haram she can wear it in her house, she can wear it in front of other women she can wear it in front of a Muslim she can wear it to an occasion. So to become a makeup artist is not haram.

01:06:27--> 01:06:31

But the person who wears that makeup and enhances it how they use it

01:06:32--> 01:06:38

is what Allah subhanaw taala will hold them accountable to how do you use that? It's like me selling you grapes.

01:06:40--> 01:06:49

You can use the grapes to make wine. And you can use the grapes to make a fruit salad. Is it my fault? It's not my fault.

01:06:52--> 01:07:07

So in the time of the Prophet sallallaahu Selim days to dye the hair, men died here, women died here. Women beautified women for their marriages for occasions. So it's allowed, but it's your responsibility to use it correctly.

01:07:08--> 01:07:12

I hope insha Allah in a nutshell, I've given the answer.

01:07:21--> 01:07:33

Yeah, Brother is asking in relation to the jizya that we talked about the tax that non Muslims who are living as citizens or residents under Islamic rule, what is the tech the jizya amount, brother?

01:07:34--> 01:07:44

It was a small amount, but Subhanallah I've just forgotten how much the amount was. It's actually a very small amount. And I will add though that non Muslims living under Islamic rule

01:07:46--> 01:07:57

if they are poor, or they're under the poverty line, they don't pay any Jews. Yeah, we use that as a cat to help them so yeah, it's Islam is this fair and just the merciful hamdulillah

01:08:02--> 01:08:02

that's it

01:08:03--> 01:08:05

that's all the questions that we

01:08:07--> 01:08:08


01:08:09--> 01:08:10


01:08:13--> 01:08:15

No, Brother is asking.

01:08:16--> 01:08:29

And I think sisters asked what we're talking about Salette the other day that if if I want can a woman pray with her makeup on her can she make will do with her makeup on? Well, that depends. Praying with your makeup on is fine. Nothing wrong with that whatsoever.

01:08:30--> 01:08:35

A woman's prayer is not affected by having makeup on even if it's enhanced makeup.

01:08:36--> 01:08:50

However, we'll do and this goes for men and women, anything that I'm not going to call it make up any substance that goes on your body in the places where four will do the water has to reach your skin so the arms up to the elbows, the face,

01:08:52--> 01:08:53

the legs,

01:08:55--> 01:09:18

the ears a little bit. If you've got something on there a layer that stops the water prevents the water from reaching your skin it must come off. So if there is makeup that's so heavy, that water cannot get through to your skin then obviously the will do is invalid and that's what you got to watch out for insha Allah I'm not going to go into the different cosmetics

01:09:20--> 01:09:51

and into all that stuff now because that will never end. I know about it hamdulillah a little bit of research the bit about it you know the nail polish are permeable, non permeable and all that stuff, right and the eyelashes and the extensions and the glue that they use and all of that right. But right now we don't have time to talk about all of that. However, just take it as a principle. Anything that prevents the water from reaching the part of your skin that you're supposed to have full will dope has to come off before making will do because you will do is invalidated.

01:09:52--> 01:09:59

All right, but the scholars did talk about if it's a lot or just a minut amount. It's very minut amount doesn't affect you. Okay, I hope insha Allah

01:10:00--> 01:10:08

That covers it. Yeah. I have some of our brothers yeah mashallah they look beautiful with the gun on their eyes. Some of them Michelle, they have natural,

01:10:09--> 01:10:13

natural gohealth the vertical, the eyeliner. This is called makeup.

01:10:14--> 01:10:19

But it's halal makeup. And it doesn't affect them in. It shouldn't affect the women at all.

01:10:20--> 01:10:25

I hope Insha Allah, I was balanced in that answer. Yes, brother

01:10:36--> 01:10:40

Yep, Brother is asking about wiping over the socks.

01:10:41--> 01:10:42


01:10:44--> 01:11:26

This has several opinions among the schools of thought. And it depends what school of thought that you follow. It's all okay insha Allah. And we spoke about this in our lecture on solid last time when we did the seven part series or eight part series. And we said that the most authentic Hadees talk about Rasulullah saw Selim wearing hoof hoof a leather, leather socks, they are liver. And they are made of animal leather. So he used to wipe over them, there's a hobbyist to wipe over them. But then there are also other Hadees we talk about Job and Job can be any material. Hope is literally leather. The other hat is talking about job. Some of them are weak, some of them are authentic, some

01:11:26--> 01:11:29

of them lots of weak ones come together. And

01:11:30--> 01:11:32

there is the other group of scholars, which is the majority

01:11:34--> 01:11:52

that wiping over the socks if they are not made of leather. It's okay for will do if you follow that method. But the condition is they have to be thick socks. As for the thin socks and holes, honestly, the scholars of Hadith have said that it is not authentic.

01:11:53--> 01:12:03

All right, like there's some Hadees talking about with it with his the socks were thin or there were holes in them and stuff like that. And the correct opinion insha Allah is that there have to be fixed socks.

01:12:04--> 01:12:23

I would have lifted my legs up right now for you, but it'd be rude. I'm wearing them right now fixed socks, and it has to be one night, or sorry, just any one day over that you've worn them. If you're on travel, it's three nights and three days, but there's more detail to it. I'll just leave it at that. There's more detail to it. Inshallah.

01:12:24--> 01:12:24


01:12:26--> 01:12:29

Yes. So the conditions are that

01:12:31--> 01:12:41

once you make normal wudu, and you wash your feet normally, then immediate and then afterwards, before you lose your dog. You wear those thick socks or the leather socks, the leather.

01:12:43--> 01:12:56

And from that point, if you lose your widow, from the point you lost your widow, you can wipe over them and then you count a day and a night for them. So that's the only condition

01:13:05--> 01:13:12

okay, so how can how long can you shorten the prayer and we also covered that in the seven week lectures that we did here, but just very quickly

01:13:14--> 01:13:20

it is unanimous among the scholars, the four schools of thought that you can shorten your prayer

01:13:21--> 01:13:37

so the Lord becomes to the hospital becomes to a nice sharp becomes too, but the difference of opinions about joining them together. So having a look at and also together in one time. And the majority opinion is that you can join them together and the evidence is strong. Do you get it

01:13:39--> 01:14:02

on suffer? What's another topic now? I refer you to our lecture. You'll find it on YouTube or the Facebook page of Preston mosque where I did a whole class only on that. So I need to give more detail inshallah. All right, how long do you have to be on suffer? But in a nutshell, if you want to be on the safe side, the safe side, four days safe side.

01:14:03--> 01:14:10

But again, it's not the only valid opinion with evidence. Okay Hamdulillah

01:14:12--> 01:14:17

I think it's time All right, so welcome. Hello. Hey, well, some Allah when Amina Muhammad while early wasafi Germaine
