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

beloved brothers and sisters in Islam assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa Taala.

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

Today inshallah,

00:00:50--> 00:00:51

we will look at

00:00:53--> 00:01:13

one of the tambourine Tabby meaning to whatever a means to follow the followers to other means, the followers of the Sahaba Allah him of Salatu Salam garbine are those people who did not see then a recent alaris alum, but met many of the Sahaba in Medina.

00:01:15--> 00:01:23

So, today, inshallah will focus on one particular personality of the tabula Eden. And we will put the whole story in context.

00:01:25--> 00:01:30

So, we know that if those of us who read history, and have studied the history of Islam,

00:01:31--> 00:01:49

know that the Fabien were actually the men of Islam, who took the Islamic civilization to the rest of the world. They were the people who expanded the Muslim Empire to the shores of the Atlantic. And of course, as you know, to China,

00:01:51--> 00:02:00

they gave the rules and regulations of the Quran and the Sunnah of the NaVi saw Salaam universal application.

00:02:01--> 00:02:22

Because they were the people who moved out of Medina, and they went to settle in other countries. So they took with them, the fundamentals of the Quran, the fundamentals and wisdom of the Sunnah. And they took that with him, and they made it applicable and tactical in the other societies in which you're going to live.

00:02:26--> 00:02:27

This Dabiri

00:02:29--> 00:02:32

was a young man, was when you think about tagging.

00:02:33--> 00:02:48

And we think about Sahaba we always think about old men, people like abubaker people like Omar, but today we're going to speak about some of the young soldiers of Islam, some of the young exponents of Islam, the young, the young, wise men, as I call them of Islam.

00:02:50--> 00:03:20

And this Daddy, he was one of the seven jurists of Medina, Medina, Medina, in the time of the tablet, he had seven very famous jurists, and the Tabby that we're going to speak about today is one of those jurists, the other society who say you always obeyed Sallie Mae Abdullah Al qassimi, Mohammed Abu Bakar, Abu Salah, even after a man their oath, so a man even Yes, sir. Hurry, just busy.

00:03:22--> 00:03:26

Now, the web that we're going to speak about today

00:03:27--> 00:03:31

is none other than a man by the name of Salim.

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

Now,

00:03:34--> 00:03:49

there are two names that we name our children, we call them Salim, or Salim, there is no Salim, it's either Salim, or Salim. And these two names have the same meaning. They mean safe, secure,

00:03:51--> 00:03:53

strong, healthy.

00:03:54--> 00:04:02

These are the meanings of salym or salema. So you can name which are the salym, which is the name of this hobby, or salema.

00:04:03--> 00:04:14

And this hobby, or rather, this Dabiri. He lived in an age when Islam went through a lot of trials and tribulations.

00:04:16--> 00:04:21

For example, He experienced some of the most disturbing events in our history.

00:04:22--> 00:04:23

Allah Allah Allah knows

00:04:24--> 00:04:34

the reason why Islam and Muslims had to endure these trials and tribulations first. He lived in the time of the death of Seneca St.

00:04:35--> 00:04:36

Karbala.

00:04:37--> 00:04:40

He lived in the time of the murder of a man in Medina,

00:04:42--> 00:04:46

Toronto, he lived at the time of the murder finale in Iraq.

00:04:48--> 00:04:54

He left at the time and so the killing of abdulai bees were

00:04:55--> 00:04:58

in a worm, who was the den chief of maca.

00:05:02--> 00:05:06

So these were the five very disturbing

00:05:07--> 00:05:10

points in the early history of Islam,

00:05:11--> 00:05:13

the beginning of the spread of the civilization and the Empire.

00:05:16--> 00:05:17

So we'll start with the last one.

00:05:19--> 00:05:36

The killing of Abdullah Abdullah Abu Zubaydah was one of the 10 people that an abyss or a lava lamp, had given the glad tidings of Jannah while he was still on the New Orleans, elac. So great personality, hello was pleased with him. And then epsilon was pleased to hear

00:05:39--> 00:05:40

this incident

00:05:42--> 00:05:43

of

00:05:45--> 00:05:48

the expansion of the Islamic empire as I spoke initially,

00:05:51--> 00:05:57

where Muslims went from victory to victory to victory, Mashallah, under the guidance of Mr. Dibble hottub

00:05:59--> 00:06:00

eventually

00:06:04--> 00:06:07

landed the prize booty

00:06:09--> 00:06:14

in the conquest of the Muslims at the time, and that was the conquest of Persia.

00:06:16--> 00:06:32

The conquest of Persia took place in the time of Arma, it will hottub and the capital city of Persia at the time was called al muda. In all the cities because the city the capital city of Persia, in fact, consisted of seven cities.

00:06:34--> 00:06:37

There's a massive civilization to compare. It was the other.

00:06:40--> 00:06:54

It was the other half or rather the opposite of the Roman Empire. Like today, we have America, Russia and China. So I suppose Persia would have been the equivalent of of China today.

00:06:56--> 00:06:59

And the king of Persia at the time and the Muslims attacked, his name was yesterday,

00:07:00--> 00:07:01

or yesterday.

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

And he finally saw that he was losing the battle when in fact lost the battle. And when he lost the battle,

00:07:11--> 00:07:53

or the Muslims, of course, the the victorious army, and at that time when the victorious army took the spoils, they took the booty they took whatever was variable, so they went back with them to Medina. And when they entered the city of Medina, army that conquered Persia, the Muslims in Medina were absolutely dumbfounded as to what the treasures that they saw the Muslim army bringing back to Medina, one was the crown of the king. They've never seen the crown. The King didn't wear crowns, they didn't wear a crown. So for the first time, a crown bespeckled will jewels and diamonds and whatever precious stones, they were, and this was paraded in front of the poor people of Medina.

00:07:56--> 00:07:57

And then there was

00:07:59--> 00:08:04

amongst the treasures, which they brought from Persia, there were three young ladies.

00:08:06--> 00:08:10

All these three young ladies were in the early 20s.

00:08:12--> 00:08:14

And they were captives of war.

00:08:15--> 00:08:17

They were taken as part of the war booty.

00:08:19--> 00:08:21

And, of course, they

00:08:22--> 00:08:27

actually wrote the letter and looked and saw that these ladies were dressed in silk.

00:08:28--> 00:08:32

And he thought himself, he must be very high. These must be very

00:08:33--> 00:08:38

people, ladies were very high situated in the hierarchy of families in Persia.

00:08:40--> 00:08:44

And the old he also saw that they were extremely beautiful Marshall.

00:08:45--> 00:08:58

Now, immediately when one thinks of war, captors and beautiful young ladies one thinks of exploitation, and etc, etc, etc. Let's see what happened to these three young ladies.

00:09:00--> 00:09:02

So olika Rama, la la la de la tierra,

00:09:04--> 00:09:05

asked

00:09:06--> 00:09:14

the leader of the expedition, he said, Who are these three ladies? And he was told that three these three are the daughters of the king of Persia.

00:09:15--> 00:09:21

This was his three daughters. I thought they were three princesses, three Persian princesses.

00:09:22--> 00:09:48

So obviously all the young men of Medina Mashallah they must have been interested in these three ladies. When Ali Abdullah lamb saw this, he and he at the time this was in time a horrible hot tub. It was the envy. You was the Chief Justice of American Hata amarapura hottub appointed him in charge of the Treasury. And also he was the Chief Justice he settled all the cases court cases

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

and immediately went to the vital mall and he took money from the medical model and he released these three ladies from the

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

From the captives, that they were captured, and they were not slaves actually. So he bought them and made the same fee. He said they're free.

00:10:12--> 00:10:27

So now when we think well, maybe it will take one of them and Omar will No, no, no, no peace will not the behavior of Muslims heinola not. When we think the first thing they would do was they would try and convert into Islam. No, this is not in the nature of Muslims and Islam.

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

So,

00:10:31--> 00:10:47

people looked at it and said, Well, you know what, why are you doing this? I mean, so Ali said, amarena Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said to the people, manana Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and New Zealand na seminare de la

00:10:48--> 00:11:23

panela everything that the Sahaba did. Hopefully, inshallah we'll get to the stage where people ask us why we're doing this other sources of did this. Well, there are also certain panela that is where we need to go that way we need to be when you make an example not my father said or my grandfather said, or my brother said no, we say Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he did this Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he did that. So he said, A Marana the Prophet orators prophet commanded us and New Zealand NASA that we should treat people according to their status

00:11:25--> 00:11:26

can treat everybody the same?

00:11:27--> 00:11:42

If it's apprentice, you must treat the person like apprentice if it's a queen, university to person, like a queen and so a king doesn't matter what his religion is, that is the status amongst these people and in society. So you must treat him

00:11:43--> 00:11:47

the prophets of Salaam said in terms of his his status.

00:11:50--> 00:11:59

So as I said, not in the nature of Islam, they were fire worshippers. The Persians were fire worshippers. And so obviously we assumed that

00:12:01--> 00:12:18

the children would be fire worshippers but there was no question about asking me mother fire worshipers No. So I Li Raja lottoland as part of the honor obviously ladies, he put the three of them in the case of the highest Lady of Medina.

00:12:19--> 00:12:21

The lady with the highest status in Medina was

00:12:24--> 00:12:32

the wife of the prophet SAW a lot of Salaam Ayesha to Atlanta, he said to Arusha please I want you to serve as the as the Guardian

00:12:34--> 00:12:41

channel. So again, showing how status is elevated, always elevated.

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

And

00:12:44--> 00:12:46

I shall of course are delighted

00:12:47--> 00:12:54

to come in, didn't say a word to them, try to tell them about this and about that. But know that our

00:12:55--> 00:13:05

of the nature of you know you must become Muslim or you must know No. After one week, history tells us they expressed a desire to become Muslim.

00:13:07--> 00:13:19

And when people of Medina they were very, very happy. We have three princesses, Persian princesses, Mashallah three beautiful princesses. They have not expressed a desire to accept Islam and people celebrated

00:13:21--> 00:13:25

there was no threat there was no force this was done under the

00:13:26--> 00:13:30

Nazca what could happen to them no one's gonna propose to them.

00:13:32--> 00:13:33

Because this is the next step.

00:13:36--> 00:13:37

What do you think happened?

00:13:38--> 00:13:41

Something that I have not come across in any history book.

00:13:44--> 00:13:48

By any other nation, whether they were Roman with they were Persian whether they were British with them.

00:13:50--> 00:13:51

I really

00:13:53--> 00:14:07

call them the three of them together and say to their stood in front of an asset to them. I want you to choose you choose a husband for yourselves from the most highest status families of Medina. Panama.

00:14:09--> 00:14:22

He didn't say you You must bury me and he must marry Omar and he was married. These are great companions of the Prophet SAW saloon. He said you choose Han Allah Pinilla look at the other end respect you choose.

00:14:23--> 00:14:31

What a bigger thing to say to a young lady you choose. You choose, but we want you to choose of the best that we can offer you.

00:14:33--> 00:14:36

So the first one chose the sun of

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

course.

00:14:41--> 00:14:52

She was told that your locker was halifa was beloved, a companion of Mohammed salah and she married hadn't meant ibni Aviva or the electron.

00:14:53--> 00:14:57

They had a son called Kasim, me Mohammad

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

Qasim, the center Mohammed

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

Qasim became

00:15:05--> 00:15:11

one of the jurists of Medina was already one of the jewels of Perdita, but we are all young men.

00:15:12--> 00:15:20

The second marriage for same evening, very famous for saying, we'll die the Karbala for saying but the electron, she married him.

00:15:21--> 00:15:33

Son of the cousin of ham metal alarmism. So they were in the top 2% of choosing husbands. The third one was Abdullah, even your alma

00:15:39--> 00:15:42

Abdullah Ahmad is very famous.

00:15:44--> 00:15:56

Very famous. He was also one of the in the time of the new visa Salaam, he was considered to be an island and many of the Sahaba used to after the death of the Navy so Salah they used to go to him for fatawa info,

00:15:58--> 00:16:02

judgments and so forth and so on. So I'm delighted me Omar Abdullah, the Senate former

00:16:03--> 00:16:05

it will hottub Raja lottoland

00:16:07--> 00:16:08

he married

00:16:10--> 00:16:17

the separatists. So all three people one is married to the son of Omar, one was married to son of Holly and one was married to Senegal.

00:16:19--> 00:16:21

The highest ranking people in

00:16:24--> 00:16:28

this story deals with

00:16:29--> 00:16:40

the son of Abdullah from his Persian Princess, he married he's now asylum as I said to you before, even Abdullah Omar mo hottub Raja la de la

00:16:44--> 00:16:45

and Salim

00:16:46--> 00:16:49

is wise young man, yet they have the wisdom of sailing

00:16:51--> 00:16:54

and Salim are they allowed to learn

00:16:56--> 00:17:03

he was settled in Medina and he was also one of the seven jurists, seven islands of Medina.

00:17:06--> 00:17:13

When these marriages took place between Persian ladies and adults over the first time in the city of Medina,

00:17:15--> 00:17:21

there were marriages outside of the Arab clans, because the Croatia very clannish

00:17:22--> 00:17:32

and the Arabs have both takoma they very clearly should marry only within the clan or within the society and community of either Mecca or Medina.

00:17:34--> 00:17:43

So these three marriages broke the back of nationalism of Arab nationalism. They realized then that we could marry whoever we want to marry.

00:17:45--> 00:17:51

And we see them that that takes root so deep that moose is married into every nation in the world.

00:17:54--> 00:18:03

So Abdullah knew Abdullah who married the princess he knew that why did he Why did he call he send Salim

00:18:04--> 00:18:06

uncommon name first year, isn't it?

00:18:08--> 00:18:10

When it comes to the Sahaba Allah in such a Salah

00:18:11--> 00:18:13

he may equal the son Salim

00:18:14--> 00:18:22

because he knew that his father was his father's alma mater has a friend by the name of Sally.

00:18:23--> 00:18:30

But Salim was the mole of Abu hanifa Salim was not a free man, he was a slave. He was

00:18:31--> 00:18:32

a slave of

00:18:33--> 00:18:36

Abu hanifa Rajaratnam

00:18:38--> 00:18:44

but Allah loved him so much the slave of another person wasn't easily he loved him so much and he said

00:18:46--> 00:18:50

when he was dying, he said no kind of Salim Haiyan

00:18:54--> 00:19:08

he said if Sally meant to be alive, Sonia passed away reading are still alive. While our little filler for being in body armor said while I if Sally meant to be alive, I would have appointed him Halifax to be our they have

00:19:10--> 00:19:16

designated him as my successor. So much love Sadie. And

00:19:17--> 00:19:21

he son, Abdullah knew the love between his father and this man.

00:19:23--> 00:19:29

And what does it tell us? It tells us that the Sahaba and the children and that society knew

00:19:30--> 00:19:44

that you must own your pennies in any way you can, particularly the friends which they had. Honor the Friends of your parents. And yeah, you honor the friend of his father by naming his child. Sally hannula

00:19:45--> 00:19:51

remember, this is part of the sunova muscle a lot ariosa honor the Friends of your fathers and humans.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

Salim was not born in the time of Mr. Nakata. He was born two years after the death of his grandfather armor is

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

Do

00:20:03--> 00:20:06

we know about six children, our children,

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

and Abdullah that we speaking about now was his most beloved child.

00:20:13--> 00:20:20

Abdullah Omar was the most beloved child of Oman, because both of them Mashallah love WC Salam

00:20:21--> 00:20:22

in competition

00:20:24--> 00:20:28

and they love to follow the signals in competition really about it.

00:20:30--> 00:20:36

And I'm delighted seven children and his most beloved child was Sadie. As I said,

00:20:38--> 00:20:42

Now, we know that can't we can't love all our children equally.

00:20:44--> 00:20:59

That's an admission that we we make as parents, you know, we can't lavato We can never love anybody to people equally. That's what an episode 72 allows families, Allah, I've got many wives,

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

I can treat them equally in terms of the material things which I gave him.

00:21:05--> 00:21:10

But my heart dictates who actually love the burst. That's not what that is in your and so on.

00:21:11--> 00:21:13

So Love is in the hands of a lot.

00:21:15--> 00:21:17

But we're human, we're all human beings.

00:21:18--> 00:21:25

And we can safely say that those children who spend more time with their parents opinions will love the more

00:21:26--> 00:21:29

those that are more generous with the parents, the parents will love the more

00:21:30--> 00:21:35

those who are hugging, kissing, kind to the parents and those ever converted to the Paris office.

00:21:36--> 00:21:38

So we need

00:21:39--> 00:21:41

to be like Abdullah, you're not

00:21:44--> 00:21:57

respecting the memory of his of his father. Same happened to use of a nebia coupe. He loved use of the most because you spend a lot of time with it. It was the apple of his eye.

00:21:59--> 00:22:10

And so, this is not something which happens it is something which is cultivated. Love is cultivated between children and parents. And it takes time for it to happen.

00:22:12--> 00:22:19

And remember, parent doesn't want they don't need your money. They don't they only need your smile. They need your hug. They need your kindness

00:22:21--> 00:22:31

and your time. Most important is they need some of your time. Don't always say oh, I'm busy. I'm busy. I'm busy. We know you're busy. But we know you have time.

00:22:32--> 00:22:38

We know because we weren't able You were always a baby to our parents. I'm busy. Maybe we're not so busy.

00:22:41--> 00:22:43

And one thing about Abdullah

00:22:44--> 00:22:49

about Saudi, sorry about Saudi, whatever his father knew, whatever

00:22:51--> 00:22:55

Abdullah knew of the deal he learned from his father.

00:23:01--> 00:23:02

And so young men and young women,

00:23:03--> 00:23:13

children must always learn first from their parents. Why must they learn from the parents first? Because the parents gives for free

00:23:14--> 00:23:32

and the parents give with love. When a parent teacher something, he gives it with love. He looks into the eyes of his child. He says my child you carry this carry this to your children because what he says in his heart, he doesn't say it openly says and I'm telling you this and I'm giving you this so the mechanic to your children

00:23:38--> 00:23:40

Abdullah Abdullah Ahmad

00:23:43--> 00:23:46

This is now silence father Abdullah Salim said Norma

00:23:49--> 00:23:50

was totally different from his father.

00:23:52--> 00:23:53

The both of you, Medina.

00:23:54--> 00:23:58

But he was totally different or not was fearless.

00:23:59--> 00:24:07

That needs to take to fight to get involved in a struggle for the sake of a loss handler. And he was not afraid to express his opinion.

00:24:11--> 00:24:23

But he's other companions tell us that armor had one outstanding quality that very few people had. In fact, in Medina, he was known for this quality, honorable hottub was done. What was that quality?

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

Now armor was quick to give his opinion was quick to say this and he was quick to say that

00:24:30--> 00:24:41

but the people of Medina knew that if somebody came with a hadith from the Nabi sallallahu sallam, he would immediately leave his opinion and accept the Hadith of the NaVi Salah

00:24:42--> 00:24:59

immediately when he said Oh, I'm wrong saffola please take what an Ibiza celibacy and this is how we should be. No matter what we did our life. If somebody comes around and says, Chef, this is a hadith from the mini Salah. Hammer this hadith. Immediately we should say accept the Hadith

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

Tommy's Howdy, howdy, howdy panela.

00:25:04--> 00:25:19

So I'm logged on like his father. Abdullah was a non adversarial person. He wasn't a, an argue an opinionated owner. He when there was conflict, he kept away from conflict. You get people like that. They don't want to get involved in arguments.

00:25:21--> 00:25:24

Remember, Ahmad became Muslim.

00:25:25--> 00:25:35

And just before he came became Muslim, he took out his sword on the kill and Ibiza salad that was kind of manuals. I'm not a very strong proton blooded person, red blooded person.

00:25:38--> 00:25:38

And

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

when he came home,

00:25:43--> 00:25:52

from becoming Muslim on the day, Omar became Muslim, immediately called his family together. And he said to his family, I want you all to become Muslim now.

00:25:54--> 00:26:23

That was, all of us become Muslim now. So I'm delighted son said that he, I've been Muslim for the whole year hamdulillah. So I must say what you've been missing already for only six years. So I must say, Why didn't you tell me? He said, because I didn't want to enter into conflict with you. So veterans, Abdullah said, You know, I accepted this. ohana. I'm a young Muslim. I knew ally beta Allah will eventually bring into Islam. So I bided my time was patient with you.

00:26:25--> 00:26:44

Yet didn't does didn't mean that Abdullah was a sissy, he didn't want to participate in battles, Abdullah participated in every single battle fought under the Salalah audio panel. So he wasn't scared of fighting for the truth. He was just mad socially, they didn't want to

00:26:45--> 00:26:46

maybe upset other people.

00:26:48--> 00:26:57

So the lesson we learned from this is you must give your children the freedom to choose what they want to be in life.

00:26:58--> 00:26:59

They can't become a photocopy of you.

00:27:01--> 00:27:04

Because Why not? Because times change

00:27:05--> 00:27:32

up your personality is good for your age and your time. But you can't say well, my child must also not dress like me and be like me. No, he's gonna live in another time. Yes, choose his own path. And especially the choosing of an education, part of education, because he was on the team. That's very, very important. But he wants to become a she wants to become a nurse or a teacher or a doctor, or a scientist, whatever should allow

00:27:43--> 00:27:48

Sally Sallie Mae on the other end, was different from his father was different from Abdullah

00:27:49--> 00:27:49

Salim.

00:27:53--> 00:27:54

Let's see how

00:27:55--> 00:28:02

what was the quality of styling? What kind of a person he was? How different was he from? How different Could he have been from Abdullah?

00:28:04--> 00:28:24

His father was as a hobby. And from his grandfather was honorable hottub Pinilla wouldn't be want to have been like them. No, it wasn't like that at the time. If you look at the Sahaba of the Navy salsa club, they're all set in the madrasa of the Navy. They all studied in the University of Guatemala.

00:28:25--> 00:28:31

But they're all different. Now, we didn't create miniatures of himself. Nobody's calling me Mr. Mohammed.

00:28:34--> 00:28:36

They were allowed to develop their own personalities.

00:28:37--> 00:29:00

Today, I'm going to say, well, you learn by that person is just like that person. You wait like the person who looks like that person. So I'm not even married a person's daughter, so heinola they're so drunk, so drunk, but still, when we look at the teacher ship, the mentoring Muhammad Hassan was not to make them like him. They were individuals and to retain the individuality.

00:29:02--> 00:29:02

So

00:29:04--> 00:29:19

the first calamity that hit Islam in the time of Salim new was a young man 15 years old, was the technology was killed. Dolly was stabbed in the mirror and he died in Iraq.

00:29:23--> 00:29:24

So as I said,

00:29:26--> 00:29:27

Abdullah wasn't too

00:29:30--> 00:29:31

aggressive man.

00:29:33--> 00:29:36

So what happened now? It was killed.

00:29:37--> 00:29:49

People were not concerned as to who's going to become the next halifa but all was always on top of the mind of the of the muslimeen of the time. How halifa is has been killed, it has been killed. So what do we do now?

00:29:50--> 00:29:58

They said one, let's go to those people whom are appointed to choose

00:30:01--> 00:30:07

So they find they're all they all passed away. They all passed away. Then there we go. Abdullah, Allah, the father of Saudi.

00:30:09--> 00:30:14

This is your sister Abdullah, you are the son of Mr. Evil hataoka. We want you to become

00:30:17--> 00:30:19

know, as as you know, I've done I don't do, I'm done. I

00:30:21--> 00:30:22

didn't want to get involved in conflict.

00:30:24--> 00:30:39

So Abdullah said, you know, what about the people of Syria? You know, Malia is living in Syria, Mario has done NyQuil who killed it? He said, Are we going to just get people of Edina? What about those who those who slip is our country of people there?

00:30:42--> 00:30:57

So the Muslims of Medina said you don't worry about him. We pledge that we will protect you against malaria and the people of Saudi Arabia. I mean, they should have a hand in the choosing of if

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

we want to be free and honest.

00:31:01--> 00:31:04

So they said don't worry if they want to fight We will fight.

00:31:05--> 00:31:07

So Abdullah said no.

00:31:08--> 00:31:16

Even if you tell me I should be only halifa for one day, I will not accept this position.

00:31:17--> 00:31:20

If there is a possibility that I may I may kill another Muslim.

00:31:22--> 00:31:23

So what are these excuse?

00:31:24--> 00:31:33

You people are talking about war against Muslims. I'm not going to even if you give me this, this khilafah I am not going to kill another Muslim.

00:31:35--> 00:31:40

What do you think they said to him? They sit you so you think you're better than Holly

00:31:42--> 00:31:46

Holly fought against while we are using now in your decision as business analysis.

00:31:48--> 00:31:50

You know, while he was cutting off the Navy, Allison,

00:31:51--> 00:32:03

Allison, and his history, so I'm gonna keep quiet. He didn't know what to say. You never say yes, I'm better than it was Holly took the position. And he fought against for Alia.

00:32:04--> 00:32:06

There was a big fight.

00:32:07--> 00:32:14

Lost, lots of Muslims got killed. And now they're telling him You think you're better than me. So Abdullah didn't know what to say.

00:32:16--> 00:32:21

So sadly, his 15 year old son, he got up and he said

00:32:22--> 00:32:24

kulu yamo. It's the huddle.

00:32:27--> 00:32:29

kulu yamo it's the huddle,

00:32:30--> 00:32:35

three data tree with a 15 year old boy. He said to the gathering,

00:32:36--> 00:32:41

every person is responsible for his own decision.

00:32:42--> 00:32:54

If you seeking the truth is responsible for is every person, a decision a person makes only for himself, doesn't affect other people. So his decision was Alice decision.

00:32:55--> 00:32:57

That was his decision.

00:32:59--> 00:33:02

And his decision everybody respected.

00:33:03--> 00:33:13

My father's decision is he does not want to become the halifa. And he doesn't want to be involved in a war with other Muslims. That is my father's decision.

00:33:15--> 00:33:22

And my father's the right to use it, it's too hard to apply his mind to the situation and to come to his own decision.

00:33:24--> 00:33:29

I want you to remember these words, every person is responsible for his own decision.

00:33:30--> 00:33:49

Of course, if somebody comes to you and quoted the verse of the Quran, then the decision is our last decision for man comes in quotes asuna Mohammed awesome, then that is the profits decision. But if you make your own decision after having looked at all the facts, then that is your decision, even if it goes against somebody else You see, but that is that decision which he took.

00:33:51--> 00:34:00

This is my decision which I take. And I am that I rightfully own my own decision. And this goes for everything in the depot. So

00:34:02--> 00:34:23

if you Yeah, for viewpoints about Should we go to the magic during Corona or not go to the magic at Corona. Whose decision is that to make a decision? You have to look at all the facts and you decide for yourself. Yes, I will go to the budget. Of course this is not an expected decision.

00:34:24--> 00:34:33

Because I think it's not a viable decision to me. But if that is your decision, then people should respect your decision. Yes, we could disagree with you, but we should respect to this.

00:34:35--> 00:34:49

And so and he said, I know Allah and what our intentions are, which is all in the heart. That is Allah knows that. We should accept what I say with my mouse.

00:34:51--> 00:34:54

We are people Donal Mattoon.

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

We are people who judge people by what they

00:35:00--> 00:35:20

Say, Allah knows the secrets of the heart. panela. So if a man says La ilaha illAllah, he's a Muslim, what do you think he's just saying it or not saying it, that is not your domain, that is the domain of the unseen of the heart allows for the learners. So if remained consistent, I lied a lot.

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

Even if you lost after it, he said, La Ilaha Illa. You don't know why LA.

00:35:27--> 00:35:28

So we accept what he says.

00:35:30--> 00:35:30

No matter

00:35:32--> 00:35:38

what law we have to understand that the people that judge people, but what they say, Allah controls the hearts.

00:35:46--> 00:35:46

Now,

00:35:48--> 00:35:53

the next one is a situation was even more precarious. And the first one much more precarious.

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

Same

00:36:13--> 00:36:15

cleanse twins scenario, the law

00:36:17--> 00:36:19

allows for him to lead the process alongside

00:36:21--> 00:36:24

whom I say the origin has an upper saying will be the

00:36:26--> 00:36:28

the masters

00:36:30--> 00:36:32

of the use of general

00:36:33--> 00:36:51

they'll be the leaders who say we'll be in general. So the prophecies, whoever's in general is in Jannah. While they're still alive, it means that Allah is pleased with him. And the levees are Salamis, please do. And those are the two qualifications that you need to have a sure entry ticket to the agenda.

00:36:56--> 00:36:58

We know that

00:37:01--> 00:37:04

when Hassan was offered to become halifa.

00:37:05--> 00:37:10

And while we are also wanted to be halifa, Hassan said, I stand back

00:37:12--> 00:37:42

and everybody accepted it explained, everybody accepted it. Why? Because he was been agenda has an agenda. When Hussein came and he said, No, I'm ready to fight while we are new into Karbala, and he was still there. People respected it. And we still respect them up to today. We don't understand when Hassan said no, I didn't want to feel respected and respected. So we respect the decisions of those who make those decisions based on their interpretation of the facts.

00:37:52--> 00:37:53

There was

00:37:54--> 00:37:55

Sally was

00:37:56--> 00:38:00

and this is one of the qualities of good good people. They're very generous people.

00:38:01--> 00:38:03

Salim was a very generous man.

00:38:04--> 00:38:11

They say he used to sit. We never used to come out into the street people used to throng around him.

00:38:12--> 00:38:16

And one day at 20,000 dinar, the 20,000 silver coins.

00:38:17--> 00:38:46

And he was sitting on the side of the road and giving out the 20,000 until there was no more left. No more credits left. And after giving away the last coin, a poor beggar came to him and put his hand out. And what did you do? Did you say to the beggar Oh, sorry, man, you late, you know, I've given up all my money. No, you say to the next team, lend me some coins. And he gave it to the bigger panela never ever turn anybody away from

00:38:48--> 00:38:50

being generous to that person.

00:38:52--> 00:39:33

And in a lot of a lot of people looking for employed slaves working for you treated them beautifully. And when the slave wanted to be emancipated when he wanted to not be a slave anymore, he wanted to leave what did he do the slaves of salad used to count make salad in front of in front of salad. So it was a very soft hot new say Mashallah. You're a Muslim hamdulillah and he would set them free, would set them free. And the people used to come to Parliament, you know, these people are doing this to you. They love you and your bank because they didn't really mean to make a bad. So he said a person with a burqa to be to allow in front of me. That is what I see. That is what I

00:39:33--> 00:39:41

accept. What is in his art is not for me to say. And then he said something beautiful. Then Salim said he said you know

00:39:42--> 00:39:43

if

00:39:44--> 00:39:45

Satan Ali

00:39:48--> 00:39:56

didn't sit my mother free. Persian princess What is man? If he didn't say they're free, I would have been begging today.

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

So

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

You see how

00:40:02--> 00:40:07

they both and shaped their lives upon that of the great Sahaba that they knew.

00:40:09--> 00:40:33

So we should always try to be good to Muslims every now and we should always be kind and compassionate, always guiding compassion Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim kindness keinen compassion, that the other tools first qualities of Allah that is kind and is compassion. So we live in times now when we are required moreso to be kind and compassionate, very kind and very compassionate.

00:40:34--> 00:40:37

So, be grateful when somebody comes and knocks on your door

00:40:39--> 00:40:41

and ask for some food be grateful.

00:40:42--> 00:41:02

Be happy because I'm not saying to people to your door. I mean you've heard the story so many times you know, we're living in this avenue we live in this street. But everybody comes to knock on my door they don't know go knock on I never seen him knock on the neighbor's door they always come here. Why? Because you're the generous person. That's why they come to your door. And that's what Allah sends them to your door.

00:41:05--> 00:41:06

So Salim

00:41:07--> 00:41:15

was a very generous man Salim was also one of those kinds of persons who didn't enter into controversy. Controversies

00:41:16--> 00:41:30

very wise young man's life we had this wisdom, we only get this wisdom when we like over 70 and sunny Florida it was the mid 15 because of the people that he loved grew up with. So an example of his

00:41:32--> 00:41:39

of his deep wisdom was that Sulayman in America was then the

00:41:41--> 00:41:42

halifa

00:41:43--> 00:41:49

oveja halifa that is a halifa was set in in the rascasse he came to visit Medina

00:41:50--> 00:41:54

Oliver come to visit i mean he's the he's the king of the Muslims.

00:41:56--> 00:42:01

He he entered the masjid in Medina. And he asked way Salim

00:42:02--> 00:42:11

Ali masa, grandson of the great man army hotdog he wanted to meet. So they pointed out Sally was sitting in the masjid and he went to sit next to Sally.

00:42:14--> 00:42:21

And he was so humbled sitting next to him because he knew the status of the span grandson of Allah will have thought panela

00:42:22--> 00:42:24

honor for him to sit next.

00:42:25--> 00:42:28

This is the honor they show to people of status.

00:42:30--> 00:42:35

So the halifa didn't know what to say to Sally we say to Sally, another

00:42:36--> 00:42:41

thing I can do for you, you know, anything I can do for you so her son

00:42:45--> 00:42:54

so it was quiet for a while and then he said he looked at the halifa and he said in a sty an akuna Fie Beatty. He was Allah

00:42:55--> 00:42:59

subhanaw taala he said to the halifa I am shy

00:43:01--> 00:43:21

I hear what the question you're asking me want to know what I need anything. I am shy, to be in his house was house, the house of Allah and to ask somebody else to come he said he says I'm so shy. Even if I needed from you. I'm so shy to ask you in the House

00:43:22--> 00:43:27

of Wolves I lost harmattan How could it be the house of all night out somebody else? panela

00:43:30--> 00:43:36

He probably didn't mean probably he was a wristband by himself so he didn't need anything but he didn't want to he didn't want to say no the king would have

00:43:38--> 00:43:41

a default uniform good policy to the manor.

00:43:42--> 00:43:44

Now this is also for law.

00:43:45--> 00:43:46

And then

00:43:48--> 00:43:49

halifa said I'm sorry.

00:43:50--> 00:43:53

So when the Salah was finished, they got outside

00:43:54--> 00:43:56

Khalifa ran after him

00:43:57--> 00:43:58

after the budget

00:43:59--> 00:44:18

and calibers would run outside the machine I can't have an excuse. I'm again gonna ask him this anything maybe you need something maybe whatever you may need for the people of him so so he said aloka hajah said yeah Salim Raja, outside him. Do you have anything that I that I may be able to do for you?

00:44:21--> 00:44:29

Well, he said to me, the river said to me, you know, we outside the merchant now. So we're not in the house of Allah so you don't have to be shy now to ask me.

00:44:34--> 00:44:35

So Simon said to him

00:44:38--> 00:44:40

are you talking Hi Tim, that how do you

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

Oh, hi. Hi, Jamie. How are you?

00:44:47--> 00:44:56

Listen to the wisdom of silent silent say to the halifa are you asking me what I need anything of this dunya Why are you asking me if I need anything of the

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

software.

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

Have you ever said law medical accuracy by

00:45:03--> 00:45:15

Salim I don't own the al Qaeda. There's nothing I can do for you but the answer Well, I can hide you can hide the dunya but if you even think of the dunya that you may need, inshallah I will try my best to, to help you.

00:45:17--> 00:45:21

wisdoms hon Allah Salim said, and stay

00:45:23--> 00:45:26

at dunya me money emiko ha

00:45:28--> 00:45:31

Keifa atonia.

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

My lovely

00:45:36--> 00:45:37

Salim said to you,

00:45:39--> 00:45:40

I am shy

00:45:41--> 00:45:42

to ask

00:45:44--> 00:45:48

anything of the dunya. From he who owns the dounia.

00:45:49--> 00:45:54

dresses, I'm shy to ask Allah for the dunya and allows it to hear.

00:45:56--> 00:46:00

How do you think I can ask somebody of the donor who doesn't own the donor?

00:46:05--> 00:46:19

said you asked me that anything with the donor. But I'm shy to ask the one who owns the donor. I'm also shy to ask the owner. The old adage try to ask, must I ask you who doesn't admit and water to ask him what you don't even own it?

00:46:21--> 00:46:27

Hold on. What was it about? Why did he give these kinds of answers in order not to upset

00:46:30--> 00:46:31

a lot of powers to

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

leave a party.

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

And

00:46:42--> 00:46:52

and that incident happened? You probably heard about a judge in use of a judge who was a great soldier of the humates. But he was a very

00:46:54--> 00:46:55

tough person

00:46:57--> 00:47:08

didn't give and taking he didn't mind him killing Muslims so that they could expand the Empire of the Muslims. And at that time, he was the commander of the army of of the

00:47:10--> 00:47:13

people in Damascus of Syria. And he came to conquer Makkah.

00:47:15--> 00:47:25

And he laid siege to Makkah in Abdullah Abu Zubaydah, one of the 10 people who were promised promised agenda and Elisa Salah he was in charge of Makkah was the abbot of Makkah.

00:47:27--> 00:47:36

So this commander of the army, he laid siege to Makkah for quite a long time and eventually entered mechanical Abdullah Israel

00:47:38--> 00:47:39

and

00:47:40--> 00:47:45

Salim was fighting on the on behalf of who on the side of Abdullah Abu Zubaydah.

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

So when they lost the war in Makkah, Sally went back to Medina.

00:47:51--> 00:47:57

But this man had judge he follows her into Medina and he came to Salim

00:47:58--> 00:47:59

with the prisoners of war

00:48:01--> 00:48:03

which he when he took when he conquered

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

back

00:48:08--> 00:48:17

so he said to Abdullah, this is where I want you to kill all these prisoners of war and if you don't kill them, I will kill you. And you know my reputation

00:48:22--> 00:48:30

What is he going to do? This many intent. He he laid siege of the Kaaba for so many days he killed Abdullah evening today.

00:48:31--> 00:48:35

One of the people promised he's not gonna think twice of killing Salim.

00:48:38--> 00:48:39

Wisdom spatola

00:48:41--> 00:48:43
