sec the next
part of this
series from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the best creation ever to walk this earth.
Allah subhanho wa Taala said about this creation Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim la Khadija
meanie no oh rocky game. A law said there has come to you
from among you.

This is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Today inshallah Allah, we will talk about his childhood.
And we'll see where we reach in sha Allah tala. My aim today is to reach up to the moment of his marriage to his first wife,
the Sahaba Khadija been to Hawaii I draw the alarm on
one of the four perfect women of the world.
And one of those promises paradise.
we left off last week
talking about how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born.
His mother is me and I've been to watch
his father Abdullah
if not the Natale
he died before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born.
And so the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
was orphaned before he was born.
gave birth to him
on the floor,
outside of her home,
and we spoke out Baraka, amen.
Who was gifted
by Abdulmutallab the grandfather of crops, to send them to his son of the law, when he got married to me, no, she was gifted to them as their maid or their slave actually.
We spoke about Baraka, who she is in our last class, not going to repeat it. But she was the one who helped deliver the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she's the first person.
I didn't just say, first woman, the first person to touch the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
We're gonna return back to the story of America today a little bit
And we mentioned that some of the things, the books of Sierra bring to us, is hundreds of books of Syrah, brothers and sisters. And to be honest with you, it's sometimes it's very difficult to sift through what's authentic and what's not.
So I've tried my best to do lots of research over the years of my life, and always repeating over and over again, sometimes I discover that we've said things in the past that actually are either fabricated, or week and even the great scholars have mentioned them, not assuming that they will affect people in any way. They're just stories that make the story more beautiful. And this is a custom. Unfortunately, I don't agree with it among the scholars of the past and the storytellers when we love the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Obviously, we love him more than ourselves. We tend to, you know, not stick to the facts and we like to make it more colorful and more interesting, more
So we hear stories that come forth and we say, well that sounds nice. I'd like to narrate it. I'd like to put it even historians of the past they put it in.
But there are actually a lot of not true. So I'd like to state what is authentic about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and not make him more than what he is. So the law while he was selling, as he used to say in the Sahih Hadith lottery una cama otra Timisoara
do not overpraise me as the Christians praised Isola Salaam until they turned him into a god. So we know who the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also in this day and age I prefer to say what is authentic and factual about the province of Ontario sent him that fits better because then what happens when you find out that some things really are either do not make any sense whatsoever neither by the chain of narrations nor by the chronological story of events, then it makes sense sometimes, and it makes us you know, look foolish, you know, and it discredits a lot of the stuff we say about the province on the lower levels and today you're gonna hear a few things that may surprise you even may
shock you sometimes, but inshallah I bring to you what I can have the sifted most authentic that I can share a lotta and not just from me but from the scholars of Hadith and older men from my own words, we're going to use people like Ivan Kassir and people like him in his heart was the original historian. He's the source of all history of the Sierra and people like lb healthy ally ally is a great spouse.
Insha Allah, Allah will bring to you the story of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam as it is the miracle of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, brothers and sisters in Islam Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born 50 days approximately, after the year of the after the incident of the elephant in the year of the elephant. It was said that he was born approximately 570 c, c e Christ era or a D.
And that's the western calendar we use today and died sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after how many years
now, so 62 years, or 63 approximately So the law they were sending me died in the year 632.
When he was born
again, we said that it's fabricated or weak Hadith that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam they said he was born with his umbilical cord already cut that has no basis doesn't even make any sense whatsoever Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam had an umbilical cord and it was cut later on either by vatika or by his grandfather of the Natale but not probably by Baraka de la ame. And later on, they said that he was born circumcised, that has no basis to it either. People want to make it more than what it is. And it says that he was born with his eyes looking up into the sky and his hands down and that he was born in suzu. And all these stories really did not have an authentic source to them.
And also la sala Selim has much more than that, that we can go by then these fabricated fantasies. My brothers and sisters in Islam
after he was born Abdulmutallab
his grandfather was still alive. So Pamela, we have now two calamities that are facing the province of the Lada send them before he was even born before he's even looked into this life. And they are that his father has died before he was orphaned. And then we find out later on at the age of 60 years old, his mother dies is often from two sides of the muttalib has now is now sponsoring him, he takes him over and he is absolutely over the moon about the birth of this grandson.
He takes him immediately to the Kaaba. He enters inside the garden and he calls upon a Lost Planet Allah to bless him and thank Allah subhana wa Taala for he has given him have a son.
And that's when Abdulmutallab his grandfather named him it was the McDonald who named the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Mohammed, the story of his naming in the books of Sierra. It says that Abu Talib said that he he used to go on trade with three of his good friends.
There's no need to mention their names but these three other good friends they also named their children Mohammed
and Abu Talib named Mohammed, Salah Mohammed so they were about four people. It was very rare. Nobody actually nobody had ever named the name Mohammed in the Arab world, not in Yemen or in McCollum. yathrib Medina anywhere in the world, not in Iraq. Nowhere was the name Mohammed Ivanova.
To the Arabs, it was when he was going on the trade. And on their way they met a Jewish scribe a scholar.
This this scholar,
they he was telling them about the coming of a prophet in the land of yathrib in Medina, and that the books say that his name is Muhammad, the old praised one.
These four men, they love the name.
And Abdul muttalib was the first to have a grandson. He was the first to name him Mohammed.
And then the others. They also named their children Mohammed says the naming of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
after he was born, in the books of Sierra, we don't have too much information about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam except what I'm going to narrate to you today.
It was the custom of the Arabs in those days
that when a child was born in Mecca,
they sent him
to people in year three. Why am I saying get three
it wasn't named Medina yet was also called diva. But I'm taking you through the journey as if we're living there at the moment. So let now it's called the three everybody knows that as yesterday. Yesterday people it was it had vegetation, it had date palm trees, it had more water, it was more civilized. The you know the the Arabs there were well established. People didn't come and go into Medina and yet it like they did in Mecca. It's like when we're living here in the West. It's very multicultural people come in and out. And unfortunately, a lot of us have forgotten our Arabic language, you know, our children, aloha Island, how much Arabic They will hold and then our
grandchildren, Allahu Allah.
You know, because of the influx, which is a multiculturalism a good thing, but unfortunately, sometimes what happens is that you lose the original grammar of your Arabic can become slang and you lose a lot of its words and meanings. You don't know how to talk anymore. It gets mixed. I mean, what do we say now Lebanese people when my parents used to come here, we used someone asked you, you know, do you agree to go to such a place that we used to say pay him? It's all good. Now we say all right. All right means all right. Okay. We even type it lF loca here. So we start to miss what the Arabs of Morocco wanted to do was that they wanted to send their children to three, because they was
the heart of Arabic, the greatest poets came out of them. By the way, having to mention this Arabic, the Arabs took absolute pride and honor in their Arabic language. I mean, poetry was the biggest thing. In fact, poetry was the biggest media. In those days. If somebody wants to get revenge from you, you'll be finished wiped out with poetry. And if somebody wants to praise you, you will be almost a king by the poetry that they say to you. In fact, the leaders of Qureshi and others they used to pay for people great poets, to mention them in a good way, even with lying, because what's poetry poetry is an exaggeration.
of either left, right or extreme right or extreme left or something in between. However, one way they wanted everybody is to fear the great poets. And that is why later on you'll find out that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam rejoiced,
When the great poet has sent a new fabric embraced Islam later, later on, we'll talk about him when he was in Medina. He embraced Islam and he had great culture because that was the media of the time. The media of the times nothing wrong today, this teacher there's nothing wrong today. If you had poetry or you had skills in spoken word, for example, or in singing, don't misunderstand me when I say singing you're allowed to sing for crying out loud. It's okay to sing. Sometimes even in circumstances you're allowed to use the duck for the tambourine. It's nothing wrong with that inshallah Tada. And it's a form of media. It's a form that enters the hearts and the minds even
teaching your children through rhythmic words and singing in ways that is mobile is allowed to teach your children is really good. In fact, I have a little story about a man when I'm going on a tangent now but there's a man who speaking about poetry and how to teach people with the rhythmic poetry spoken word and singing. There was a man of the Bedouin Arabs who entered the mustard of Prophet sallallahu Sallam wasn't the Prophet peace be upon him was teaching about the Salat the five daily prayers and how many records each one is and this Bedouin man couldn't memorize it he told him it's this and that and that and the men couldn't memorize it The purpose of the lesson and repeated again
and again, until finally once a hobby entices, you Rasul Allah, let me teach him. So he said, Tell me, how do you want to return the solid prayers and the numbers into a poem form, and the man immediately memorized it into a poem home, there's nothing wrong, my brothers and sisters, to go into those areas Islam is not rigid and strict to that extent. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, it was a custom to send their children from Mecca to Medina to be raised to learn the pure proper error.
Language and to be raised among their own society in their, in their pure form, away from all the other stuff and, and, and without any distractions because the parents in Mecca were distracted there's lots of work to do. There's people coming in and out each tribe remember we mentioned each tribe had a duty in Makkah one of them is to give water for the to the project he was responsible for the outcome in the network. Others were responsible for the king of the of the Kaaba, and then others who used to serve them with that material, the cafe, the the ROM which they used to when they still were around as well.
By the way, speaking about the wrong
the leaders got so obsessed with their honor and privilege of the custom of looking after certain things of responsibilities for the project. Remember, we said that the Arabs,
they will die, they will rather die and fight to death to uphold one single honor
for their family.
They will wipe off nations and villages tribes, they'll even their lives and bloodshed. There'll be tortured night and day. For one honor. They call it shut off a dignity. This is the Shahinian
the Arabs, what did I do? I was saying
before that I was making a point.
So the people who are the latest orders mostly for the wrong they got so upset that they said to the people who came from outside you have to buy and purchase our from you're not allowed to bring your own Iran to us any other wrong. And so the poor people who couldn't afford the drama today Do
they circumambulating tawaf naked,
people became naked, and nudity almost became something normal because of the power. But women did dress and men did dress, but when it came to rituals, nakedness was not really a priority.
So they made the work some of them naked, around the men and women. So Panama until the Prophet sallallahu wasallam became property enter took over Mecca, and he stopped that terrible ritual. So my brothers and sisters in Islam Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was now a baby ready to be received by someone from yesterday, who they used to come to Mecca. And what did they used to do these to take the children, especially women who already had children? Why? Because they needed to breastfeed.
And we all know for those of you who are married or sisters here who've had children before you understand that a woman cannot breastfeed, she cannot lactate, they can't make milk in her breasts unless she has a newborn child. And so Pamela, it's amazing from the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala, that when a baby, I'll just tell you this when a baby cries and the mother hears the crying of the baby, stress hormones are released. And those stress hormones produce more milk for the babies upon.
So the these women they took other babies and when there's other babies cried it produced even more milk so is capable of feeding 1234 babies at the same time. And these people used to come and get paid for their work. How did they get paid? The Arabs never put a standard price to their service. It was against their honor and dignity, to say this is worth something. So what did they do? They left it up to the individual,
so called honorariums.
Whatever you think
your dignity tells you to pay me? I will take it and whatever you give me, my dignity tells me that question.
That's how the Arabs were.
Along they came and one of the ladies she was she she was poor, and her husband was poor. This particular lady's name was Halima to Saudi, or the Aloha energy embraced Islam later on. Halima came from Medina yesterday, she lived in year three. She came along with her husband, as the women and men were going to Makkah it took them, you know, a month or two months journey almost for some of them. She took what she had. It was called a female muled a female, noon. That's all she had. It was very skinny. Because they were poor. They couldn't feed it too much. It was weak, and she would always delay. The delay the people who are going to the
people who are traveling there needs to say Halima Hurry up Pick your lazy donkey. He's not lazy. He's weak.
Once she arrives upon a law,
everybody took a baby. And who did everyone avoid?
The Prophet sallallahu to send them Why? Because he was an orphan. He didn't have a father.
And if he didn't have a father, it means there's no no money. So everybody avoided him now they're going to take him and you know, as we said, there was no standard fee. They're not going to come sit there and telling him pay me this much. He had no father, they don't want to debate.
Also, his uncle's were not very rich of the muttalib. His grandfather was also poor, a Batali was poor. And you'll realize later on, that's a Panama, sometimes, they would barely have enough food for their children. And sometimes they would go a day without food. They live that hard and MacOS is a barren land very hard to get water even brothers and sisters, they survived updates and sometimes dirty murky water. It shadow the law needs to say that back in the days with the province of law seven and before its dam flourished and Zakat came in and southern. Allah blessed us. We used to live sometimes for two months, without meat or any kind of vegetation except the two black things,
the dates and polluted water. So my brothers and sisters in Islam that was the stakes a panel that's where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was born. This is the environment haleema, Saudia was the only one left everybody beat her and they took babies and Halima was one of those humble people that was a bit of an introvert and she was shy. So she said to her husband one lucky I cannot return back to year three without a baby with me, this is a shame. I'm gonna come over when I couldn't get a baby. This is not good. You know, what's my reputation might they'll start saying things about me that I'm not capable or lucky I went live without a baby. And so part of that was the will of our last panel
with Allah, that Allah subhanaw taala granted this honor to Halima Saudia to give her the best creation of Earth. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So she took him and she didn't negotiate as we said any price and Amina whatever she could afford, she paid Halle Masada took him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and went back to my brothers and sisters in Stan was the custom and tradition in those days that you look after a child foster care they call the fostering for about a year and a half to two years. Actually Suppan law the court and came and confirmed
it actually supported this two year period of a mother breastfeeding her child. It is recommended that you breastfeed the child for two whole years.
Right before another child comes along. And Allah says in the Quran, how Delaney can relate to how he is if iluminado danuta merata. Forever is able or wishing to fulfill the entire full period of breastfeeding. Allah mentions in the Quran as a recommendation. So these two taken for that long
in that in that time of two years, a remarkable things happened. Honey Masada found that Firstly, her female knew carried lots of fat. It became big and strong.
She had another camel, a female camel by that was also skinny. And so Pamela is started to carry lots of meat and carry lots of milk
She had sheep, a few sheep. And they also started to carry lots of milk and lots of meat to the point where the people of Medina used to say, yummy. Follow the sheep of Halima wherever they graze, you graze there, maybe that's where all the nourishment is needed. And some of these to send their sheep to wherever Halima Saudia sheep work and the sheep are returned exactly the same. But Halima Sadie, she would double quadruple.
And Helen and her husband knew that there was a blessing in this child's hand and all the blessing and the risk started to come. The crops started to grow the nourishment of Panama. So wherever it
was, it was blessed. When she noticed this, the two year period passed and she had to return the child back to Amina so she started to think of as many excuses as she can. So that Amina can approve of sending him back to her just give him another year or two for more blessings.
When she came back to Medina, she begged her and said you know this child you know, look Masha, Allah has put on weight and you know, 100 Allah has blessed and you know, give him another couple of years you know, he deserves that is your only child as an orphan you get to put Becky into Mecca in this hardship leaving with me when I look after him the best until she convinced him
they took him back.
And by the age of about four years old, something remarkable happened. This is authentic, agreed upon and Bukhari and Muslim and other books unanimously agreed by all the scholars past and present. That one day, by the way, Halima Saudia had already some children
These children, they became the siblings of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam they became his brothers and sisters. How did they become his brothers and sisters?
Who can tell them from breastfeeding, we call them brothers sisters by circling the road Ah,
if I agree that if, when you're a baby, if another woman has a child, because obviously, she's gonna be breastfeeding, she has child of her own a baby, if you get if this child gets breastfed by another woman,
at least four stomach falls, which is the majority of the opinion
then that baby becomes the brother or sister
of all the children of that woman who breastfed the child.
to after pay.
If there are two women, and each one breastfed, the other person's, the other woman's child, in those children, and their siblings become the siblings of each other. No one can marry from any of them. And both of their mothers they become they're
the mothers of the other person, grandma by breastfeeding, and I wish that maybe someone especially young people one day, if you're going to university and you want to do PhD, PhD or doctorate, you do a research or something, especially in science, maybe I would have loved to do that myself actually, to study breast milk. And to see what is the internet milk. We're talking about the originally the first bits of breast milk that comes out actually, it's a bit yellowish for those of you who have had children before you know what I'm talking about, that Bristol must have something that Allahu Allah and I believe it's my theory, my guess I've read a bit about it. Possibly also something in
the DNA genetics that would make someone to be called a sibling not allowed to marry from them, Allahu Allah, but this is in our Sharia. So the Rasul Allah xlm had siblings from breastfeeding they Their names were shaman. shaman was his older sister by about two years by breastfeeding Abdur Rahman.
and the other two that were by breastfeeding were Hamza the lavon and Abu Salah, but they were suckled by another woman named webvr. Who was the slave girl of Abu lahab
not gonna go on so don't confuse you. But the point is that he had 12345 brothers and sisters just from being breastfed. Hamza Delano was his uncle and his brother by being breastfed, so Panama, the will of Allah subhanaw taala. My brothers and sisters in Islam, therefore haleema to Saudi became his witness.
At the age of about four years old,
Halle Masada noticed, she said, he grew four times faster than a normal child,
four times faster. At the age of three, he looked like he was six, the age of four Luca was I was extremely sharp sighted, full of wisdom is the focus. And he was extremely brave. He was very brave.
The most you would see if he got scared was he'd go pale, but that's about it. And then he color would come back, even at the age of four years old, who was brave, so the law abiding listener.
He was beautiful. He was calm.
He was clear in his speech, he was able at the age of two years old. His speech was like a six year old, at the age of four, his speeches like a 10 year old, very clear in his speech last night that I gave him this eloquence and so panelo when he became a prophet, the Sahaba says to say, jasola Look,
we find you the most eloquent among us. You are the least educated among us in language.
He was only he couldn't read or write by the way, the majority of the Quran or people of Makkah couldn't read or write, by the way.
Yet he they said you were the most eloquent he said, Allah is the one that taught me.
By the age of four years old, he was playing with his siblings. When one of his brothers of the ramen he ran back to his mother Halima, Saudi escaped and his other siblings, same Mother, Mother, Mother,
came to Mohammed
and they gave him a blow
to his body. They hit him hard.
The poor put him to the ground,
and they cut his chest open.
It took out his heart,
Halima Saudi Arabia, her and her husband, and they saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam sitting up with his face.
And he had a scar to scars that were already there were scars not stitched up. The last $1 left the scars it seems like a Muslim that later on later on rasulillah salam was about close to his age of 16 years old, had been our best who is his cousin, very young,
not about best story and a symptomatic of the learner was about nine or 10 years old to serve the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He said I saw two scars on the chest of the prophets of Allah, Allah and the Prophet peace be upon him himself after he became a prophet. He talked about this story. He said, I was playing with the children. When two men came to me. I did not know that they were wearing white and it was jabril Ali Salaam assumption was mixed in with him, and he was telling the angels that gave me a blow which made me unconscious, and they had a bowl made of gold with Zamzam water in it. They took out my heart and I could barely hear what was going on. And they took out a
black, coagulated piece of blood black, they took it out of my heart, put it in, they took it out and then they washed my heart and Zamzam water and they said to me hair, the huggable shaytani mink, the shaitan will not be able to whisper to you after today.
Allahu Allah and what is the secret about this connection that we have with the shaitan in the Sahih Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that at least when, when a person is born, when a human being is born, or every single one of us every human born of Muslim or non Muslim parents, at least sends a shaitan to stay with you till your death is called al Karim. is also mentioned in the poor end coding and everyone has a curry. And the only the sole purpose of this Corinne is to whisper bad thoughts into your head. That's it. The shaitaan has no power over you. He cannot control you
cannot control you.
But he whispers and you do the action.
That's one a day of judgment Allah says in the Quran will call according
to a tune or lacking canopy.
On the day of judgment, according the shadow which is attached to you from birth, you will blame him and say yeah, it's his fault is one that we split blame and the Kareem will say Robin, our Lord, our Lord, he acknowledges him as the Lord because he's shifty, right? The shadow is very shifty. excellent is Your friend on there. Jasmine says I believe in god man. And he says I did not leave him or her astray. But they were too far away that they listened to me. I only invited him another verse in no matter how to come up to me. He speaks to you and says I only invited you and you responded to the invitation. Letter pneumoniae emphasize blame me. Blame yourselves.
Nobody has an excuse.
So they took that bit out and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam could never be whispered to by the shape on. Why? Because I saw the lights on the lawn while he was sending him was it going to receive the quarter and in order to carry the Quran he cannot forget it.
He used to hear at once and the shale team would love to come and mix it up for you. There are orientalist you know Orientalism?
They people historians who talk rubbish about things about the prophets of Allah some twisted around and they use this as an excuse to say the shaitaan is to come to them. Mohammed salado, Selim and whispered things to him until he went mad and he mixed the verses of the Quran and so on and so forth. This is absolute false and rubbish. There is no sauce to it, no evidence, no proof, just twisted words, manipulated Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam never forgot the verse of the Quran. Yes, they were abrogated verses. Allah says, some of them he made the Prophet sallallahu Sallam forget them for a reason. Allah says it in the Quran, but man in certain areas are known see how not to be
highly minha. It's already dealt with. Allah says there isn't a verse in the Quran that will make you cause you to forget Allah mixing figured out
how not to be high the minute we bring a verse that is better than it occurs that is better than it doesn't mean that a verse that is more eloquent than
a verse that is more fitting to the changing context. In the verses was sent down as the time change, there's context change. So in the tone of the proposal that I sent, and things were happening, so he brought him some verses, some of them would make him forget some of them he would replace them, right, depending on the circumstances and we'll talk about that later on show love giving examples. So some of us on the line he will send them was like that. He took that thing out and also it was lm could not be possessed by shall not be whispered by shirt on by the way. I'd like to make a little point here and it doesn't matter where we get to in
Hello, we've got all here to get through the seat. All right. So one more thing I want to say is this.
If you happen to get whispers from the shape on, that are bad, will not he even whispers that make you think with a god exists or not? This happens, this is the reality, then don't worry, there are only whispers of the shape on and so long as you don't believe in them or act upon them you are safe arowana in the Sahih Hadith, the companions came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam one day and said to me on a sort of lower level, we get whispers sometimes in our heads, that if we were to tell you about them, we'd rather be burned burned in the fire then telling you what goes through my head.
I sent him smile saying Alhamdulillah he does you do you really find that? They said yes, he said, and handed it to him that he wrote the Qaeda shaytani in and was awesome. Praise be to Allah who has reduced the power of the shaitan against you, to me a whispers so don't worry about those thoughts. Some people say to me, I get whispers Am I a catheter by disbeliever? No, no, these are normal. The brain is normal to always get this comes and goes. The moment you start worrying about is the minute that that thought sticks there.
So here's the Hadith. Don't worry about it.
As when Halle Masada saw this about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, her and her husband became scared. They didn't know about angels and things like that. They thought it was a Jin
Jin, they believe in gyms. And so they said, We better return him back to his mother before something else happens. And we blamed the kid dies in our head and oh my god, you know, it's not our fault. So they went back to me. And now this time before she was trying to persuade me not to take him back. This time, she's trying to persuade me not to
take him off. So she came to me and said, Look, you know, Pamela and 100 in there, we we had a lot of time with Mohammed and, you know, as time went by, and we got very busy now and we felt that we hadn't seen your son for a long time. And, you know, you can take him back and Amina looked at her and said, Halima, what's so different about it this time.
She tried to make up excuses. Then she said to her Halima, I can tell from your eyes, you're not telling me the truth, what really happened?
And she said, Well, look at this, and that happened. She told her the story. And Amina said and what she didn't she didn't budge. I mean, I did not budge, she said to her, and what do you think that a Jin came to him? They said what else we don't know what else to say. She said lower law, genes would not come to him. I saw in my dreams, the time that he was in my belly in my womb. Someone came to my dream and taught me these words or either who

I seek refuge in Allah to protect him from every jealous envious person from every shape on there is also god they can say to your children, I go to sleep for a Luca bkd Mattila de Nicola Shelton in wahama amin Cooley I in in
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is to say to his two grandsons and Hassan one per se, when they used to go to sleep, he used to say I seek refuge in a lot of protection.
In his holy words, to protect you,
from all shaitan and from all harm, and from all beasts from anything that handlings bacteria or viruses, things that travel around harmful things.
And from every evil I

my brothers and sisters in Islam.
Amina then took the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam back
and he grew with his mother from the age
of four years old just with his mother while I
was looking after him and spending on him.
He spent time with the metallic he was the chief of his clan of his tribe, but by no hashing
until the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was eight years, two months and 10 days. That's when Abdul muttalib died
at the age of six
of the metallic took him in by himself. Why? Because at the age of six years old, his mother Amina died
when Amina died there's a story to it.
With her, was Baraka como ella, remember Baraka, slave woman of the household of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam they treated her like their own. She was approximately 14 years old or so or maybe 16. Last time I said 14 or 16. When he was born, he was actually younger than that. She was about 16 or 17. At this time, when ermanno been to war have died. She was on her way back from a journey, not inside of Mecca outside of Mecca in a place called El agua.
a few kilometers outside of Mecca. We don't know exactly people don't know can't pinpoint the place where eminent and in his grave is. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew where that grave was.
So on her way back, she struck a fever. And she stricken with a fever and a sickness. In those days, it didn't have medicine like today, and obviously it's out in the desert. There's nothing there. And only one of the reasons I'm really
and if you didn't die of natural diseases, you died of the food that you were eating sometimes or of the water that they had other than zamzar.
So and they became sick there. And her and America were the only ones that according to what I read.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was 60 years old.
So he's well aware of what's happening. Even given the fact that he was double his age in maturity and in size and everything.
She she went, she lied down and America put some shelter over this little house they they put some shelter and then she stayed for a few days actually sick. When Amina felt that she was going to die she under she could see she could tell. She brought Baraka close to her and said to her in secret, she whispered to her but the profitable SMM was sitting aside, he can he can actually hear the conversation from a distance. And I didn't want her son to hear this. So she said to America, yeah, America, I'm about to pass away.
And the movement, bada bada boom. Oh, Baraka you are now I want you to be his mother after his mother. I trust no one else but you Subhana Allah.
And Allah Azza wa sallam saw me saw Baraka crying at that point. As she was telling you the story, a few moments have passed, and I'm in a went to unconsciousness. Then she died
at the hands of Baraka, under the hands of while I'm in a better car was was was holding her head on her lap.
Now, Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam could tell that Baraka was crying, he looked at his mother and she was breathless, no more breaths, don't watch her face it, color had changed. And the profitable I send them would look at Baraka.
The next minute, he would look at his mother.
And he would look at Baraka, his mother, and he understood
that his mother had died.
So what did he do? He leaked. He literally leaked,
like what a child does onto the chest of his mother.
And he started to cry,
kissing her and, you know,
wiping his face and his body on top of what a child does. He said, Yeah, my mother, my mother, Elena. America took him away. He looked at her and he remembered what his mother said moments ago.
He said to her, as if he's pleading to them.
And to me about the only you my mother after my mother, yes. And to me, yes.
America nodded her head, hugged him serious and
ever since then, is to call her
till he died, Somalia or sometimes to always pull her and to me bother only mother, after my mother, this Ethiopian lady who was a slave. Her lineage is not known. Her parents did not know who was in a warfare. They took her and sold her in the market and then she was given to the household of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam one of the women of Paradise, Baraka de la Juana. She is the one who did this. And she looked after him from that point onwards, she wouldn't leave him alone. While live she refused to get married to anybody until the day came and approximate are selling married when he was 25 years old. And he brought her into the house saying Yeah, Baraka I got married. Now it's your
turn. And she said to him, I will never leave you alone. Who's gonna look after you said I got
a beautiful said now I won't get married. I better look after you. That's you so attached to him. said no, you're going to get married. The story goes on. So Pamela Baraka later on. She married a man from the strip. She had a child from him named to Santa, and then her husband died. So she became a widow and returned back to the province of the Lord. So I'm living with him and
as he was there in every part of his life, and then our
That she married. They have nothing better than talk about his aid next week insha Allah Zaid was one of the people of paradise. And one day Baraka entered us approximately 40, maybe close to the 40, close to 50 years old, and Zaid was in his 30s Rasulullah. Salim said who wants to marry on one paradise, they will put their hand up there when he said it was better. They'll put their hands down.
They said, jasola I'll marry him. And he became her husband afterwards and they had a son.
I'm sorry, the first one was a man. So it's called a man. Now they had the son called Sam or send the music or the alarm on my brothers and sisters in Islam. That is how the mother died. There is a hadith which is also So hey, I think it's intermedio Muslim, not sure but it's a sahadi when later on Rasulullah Salah send them was in his 50s
and they were coming back on a journey while their loved one with the other companions were with him. And fast forwarding now 40 years later, 45 years later,
Homer Dillon went out looking for the Prophet sallallahu wasallam wondered whether the finding he found him crying at a grave
no one knew that was his grave that was in a place called El agua.
He said you're a sort of lone male kicker had the napkin Mark what is making you cry Rasul Allah so that we may cry with you? Why did they say that? There is nothing the problem is and ever cried about except that it was a cry that please the last time and never did he laugh except there was a laughter that please the last one out that never did anything angry except it was an anger that pleased a lot. So panel data and never setting set the setting that please the last minute and all of his emotions were in line with the pleasure of Allah. Allah Allah truly said, Can I call it an EMG been an NES. He was a walking core. And that was his whole look can look over and his character,
his personality was all
he said, yeah, this will allow me to keep what's making karasuma cry with you. He was crying heavily, heavily.
He was very emotional. So the lady was very sensitive in the right place, but it was also a man when he had to step on his emotions and step on his heart. He did so.
In that time, he said at that Runa Cobra man, how did you know whose grave This is? He said no yada. So la hora sudo Allah, Allah His Messenger know best. And he said, had he been to what? Una de. This is Amina the daughter of what the mother of your Prophet sallallahu Sallam and it's a hadith which is in Sahih, Muslim Hadith number 976 Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, I asked my Lord to give me permission to pray for forgiveness for my mother.
But he gave me no permission.
So I asked him permission to visit her grave. And Allah gave me permission. Mm hmm nawawi Rahmatullah comments. This shows us that while the disbelievers are alive, we can make do out for them, but when they have died, this is the matter belonging to a muscle panel with Allah even Ibrahim Ali salon himself but his father as he said, so far still flula karabell ask Allah to forgive you, but when he died last month, Allah forbid him from doing so. It will not reach them. And this is evidence to Allahu Alem in our belief that the parents of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were not believers.
Why? They had the opportunity to follow the deen and Hanif Deen and Hanif is the remember who said the religion of Ibrahim Ali salah and they were only a handful of people who were still on the religion of Scandinavia.
of handful. There are actually four main people that we know of their names were Zaid ignore hombre
Othman ignore health he became a true Christian and what occurred no no fun. The first cousin of Khadija lon He also became a Christian. And please ignore sad he was also a Morehead. one wish alone the story of they did No, no no fail. I think it's worthy talking about it.
They did no Hamburg no fail Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam when he was a child, he talks about him later on. He says, I saw Zaid, ignore America no fail one of the people before Prophethood who believed in one God, while everyone else worship idols. He said I saw as they did not have no faith. He used to sit with his back to the camera. And he used to watch the people that were shrieking, making tawaf around the Kaaba and when they would make the Columbia remember the television Allahumma Bay.
So with me, let Baker lead. La sharika lokala bake in Alhambra when near Metallica well molk la sharika luck,
which ends with our law there is no partner to you. And then you would say to the people
who would say to them, stop, stop, do not add anything more. But they wouldn't listen to him. They would add remember the story last time when I told you
I said no.
I said no killer, the original grandfather Proxima Selim of the whole of kurush of all of them. He was the one knock off 100 No, no,
no, no. Number two to five. He is the one who brought in the idols, remember, and he made the attempt to be legendary kalloch. And then he added in shuriken, the Maluku
and woman Malak, except for a partner who belongs to you, and everything he has belongs to you. And he all his idols, you owe a lot to your partners, but they belong to you, you own them, you're the king of them, like the way the Greeks is to believe in Zeus and the rest of the gods like that. So this man is to say, Stop, stop, he was on the honey. And he's to tell them stop slaughtering, shaped, and your cows and everything your stop slaughtering your your camels and sheep to the idols, slaughter them in the name of Allah, but they never listened to him. So he left them and went and lived alone until he died. He actually went to know the true religion. So he went to a Jewish man, a
scholar, and he told him this is what Judaism is all about. They then said to him Is this how do I become a Jew? He said to him, Well, first you have to earn God's anger upon him. Remember that the Jews believe that the children of Israel will last in the land because of God's anger. And that's why they believe the ultra Orthodox Jews that you have to be born of the blood of the Jews, because the blood goes back to the ancestors in God's anger was bestowed upon them. So the fact that you were born from their blood, you've already got God's God's anger, then you become a Jew, and that's gone. So the anger has to come come upon you somehow. It's upon Allah, I'm running away from a loss
anger to go back into it. I don't like this. You said, Tell me where do I go to know about the true religion? He said, all I know, is the religion of Ibrahim. He goes, where do I get this knowledge? He goes, there's a man who's very knowledgeable he lives in such and such he went in ended up being a Christian scholar, he asked him about his Christianity. And the man said,
This is what Christianity is. And then he said, How do I become a Christian? He said, Well, first you have to go into last hood of sin. You know, that the especially the Catholics believe that every person is born with the sin, everlasting sin of Adam and Eve, because they ate from the tree, the forbidden tree. So you're born with it, and especially the Catholics believe this, that you have to get baptized, to get rid of that sin and you become Catholic. So he believed that he has to first of all do this, and get, you know, get lost in some in some way. So you have to believe that you have that sr, from Adam. And he said, I ran away from sin. I've done nothing to come to believe that I'm
sinful for nothing is that I don't like this. So on his way back to Mecca, they did no harm, no foul, unified, he said, it's just to prove to you to show you that people did have the option of becoming true believers in one God, even though they didn't know how to pray. They didn't know how to fast. They didn't know any of these things. But at least what they knew of truth, their own mind, their own common sense told them. They didn't follow blindly, their own conscience told them their own fifth law told them you're able to make that up. I mean, even Christians today, they say, you know, this whole concept of the Trinity they've never really sat with me properly. Those who convert
to a standard tell you, the Jews, even they tell you look, you know, we know but it's the pride that takes over, you know, we're Jewish blood and so and anyone else, Hindu, Buddhist, all those people you know, they say to you, this is the religion of my forefathers. This is a religion I was born in. Sometimes they say why you were a Jew, I was born a Jew, why you Catholic was born, a Catholic, why you were Hindu. I was born and raised the Hindu. That's all it really is. But that doesn't make sense to you, or that doesn't matter so long as I have faith in them. So
they made up his mind. He said, Oh Allah on his way to the Kaaba. Oh Allah, I make you a witness that I am a mana theist on the religion of Abraham. And that's it. He used to bow and prostrate the way he knew. And this is actually good news to us. It tells us brothers and sisters that let's say you never heard about the dean, let's say you don't know much about the dean, you never have the option ever had the chance. Whatever lost Montana judges you upon the limited knowledge which you have,
right? limited knowledge which you have the minute limited understanding that you have and that judgment will judge you according to that.
Right? Even if you do wrong things and you try your best and silly a lot judges according to the limited knowledge and intention
In which you have
Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam says about this man say that nanofilm on the Day of Judgment
he died before the Prophet would by five years by the way, and patola Selim said he will be gathered on the day of judgment as an unmapped as a nation by himself. And I saw him. He has got a cloak, made out of silk, dragging off his shoulders in Jannah.
Yet, yet, he just worship one God knew nothing else. That's it. He prayed the way he thought was good. He prayed the way but it's not like today, we haven't had the decor and we have now so now we have everything that explains salad. And he's still see people saying, I pray to God the way I feel like I should pray, you know, write a letter to God, or I get up at night and I just do this, or I do that. We have. No we have no knowledge and teachings. But if you didn't know any other way than you pray the way you're not until you learn. My brothers and sisters in Islam mother is approaching very soon. What I'm going to say is this.
Next week, insha Allah Allah,
I want to talk to you about the remainder of the childhood of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam
age, which he went through what happened in
his marriage to her the Chateau de la Mancha.
And my I make one comment, because I feel like shocking and surprising about something. How old was Khadija Lohan when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam married her 40 and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was 25 to be honest to you, my brothers and sisters in Islam, the more authentic sources say that hadisha de la Mancha was younger than 40 she was actually more like 28
she had a brother that is coming here to tell us nonsense. All our lives have had 40. So this is what we're telling the non Muslim look at as the Prophet married a much older woman, the women's value, of course, they still valuable, the sola sasana was old hadisha was older than the province of La Silla. But as I tell you the facts man, the only person, there's only one scholar who said that she was 40, and he is not the most reliable, there are very healthy and mm, even casier and even his heart and many others like them who are much higher in caliber and knowledge than then then then the narrator this hadith that say she was more like 28 years old.
I was 25. That's true.
And they lived together for
15 years. And it doesn't make sense that a 40 year old, had six children. She had six children. And it's about a year and a half to two years apart between each one, even with common sense tells you that because menopause is close to about 50 something right 55 and it makes more sense. The scholar said that she was a witness at age about 28
and at the province of Law Center married her when she was about that age, but I'll tell you what. Next week, inshallah we'll talk more about his marriage to traditional de la Mancha. I want to talk about what happened when he was at the age of 35. The building of the Kaaba, there is something very important called
the horrible future. And helfen fullmoon very, very important lessons to learn from that I'd rather leave them till next week, so we can have our time and I wish that you would all come back in sha Allah Allah, they are extremely valuable lessons that I dealt. I doubt that you will come across many series of books that would give you the lessons out of these particular stories. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us understanding and wisdom my alma mater made this implicit and beneficial, listen to you all along the Taco Bell was on aloha Vina Mohammed while early he was off he was still Mr. Legal
