Oh, I should. I should.
I should. I should.
peace be upon him. We
are amazing father.
That will do Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam rubbish. Li Sabri were silly emri Lata melissani of Coco.
The sisters are Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Today we're going to tackle a topic that's a little bit difficult.
It's a period of time that is quite controversial. But before that, inshallah, we're going to go straight into
the philosopher Omar battilana. So this is the 19th session of the life of Asia or the law. And we up to now have covered a life during the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then during the philosophy of Abu Bakar, her father, right now,
in the last session, we ended on the passing away of abubaker, civic lobiondo. And we send, one of the things I wanted to mention to you is that on his deathbed
abubaker said to her, and the reason why I'm highlighting this is to show you that it showed that the man had been trained by a sort of loss of love when he was alone, and then by her own father, to have a certain attitude, towards wealth and towards this dunya. And this really illustrates that. So he said to her, my little daughter, by Allah, there is no human being that I would love more, to see that I would love to see wealthy more than you. And there is no one who is poverty off to me is more grievious more grievous to me than you. I had given you as a gift 20 Campbell loads of fruit cuttings of palm trees, I feel uncomfortable about the way I distributed them, so return them, and
they will be the property of those who inherit.
and they indeed include your two brothers and two sisters. So divide them up by the book of Allah, I should agreed, saying, Father, even if it had been so much, and so much, in other words, even if it had been a huge amount, I would have given it up.
And then she said, what, but I only have one sister, a smart, who is my other sister. And abubaker said, she is in the womb of bint cottager. Have you ever been told her is his wife, it has been cast into my mind that the girl is that the child is a baby girl. So make her your concern. Right. So we highlighted a similar narration in the last session, but it was about land. So in one place, I've found that it said, you know, he asked her to return some land. But here in this longer version,
he said that it was actually some crops that
had been from that land, right. So you can see that I showed her the land her she's always being encouraged by abubaker as she was by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to not have that kind of attachment to wealth, to not feel anything, you know, when she didn't inherit from the profits or loss alone. And then, even from her own father, she returned something that she had given her in order for him to have peace of mind and redistribute it and make sure that it was distributed in a fair way. And this little story also highlights the fact that you know, what I mentioned about her her younger sister, right uncle, she would be she would be uncle phone, Bill Avi Becker. And she's
going to feature later in Sharla. So Arusha, Milan hi now during the philosophy of oma
during the Philip of Omar, her lofty status as an Islander, as a scholar, became a parent. Omar and the other Sahaba would ask her questions about every area of the prophets home life.
That only someone like her could have known.
the wives of the Prophet SAW Selim had met had memorized many ahaadeeth so many kind of narrations and things that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had said, and, and you know about his actions, and things like that, especially almost selama and Arusha.
The senior Sahaba used to send messages to her to ask about various practices of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I used to give fatwas in the ears of Omar an off man and beyond until she passed away, and inshallah, in the next session, we're really going to go into her scholarship more, you know, like, exactly what did that mean? And also like, who were students and things like that. Omar, would also refer to each have their own hat as a scholarly or authority. One example is that once Homer heard that
armor been on me, I had given the Sahabi had given a roll of cloth in charity, to some
prostitutes, so some women who are known to be loose or whatever, who were kind of being ostracized and excluded from society as a punishment. He sent
sorry, I don't know what happened. Okay, yeah.
So some women who were being ostracized
because of you know, some the crime of being prostitutes.
And they were being excluded from society as a punishment
have been omya had sent and obviously they were poor. He sent them
material as cheap as charity. And Omar told amber angrily that such charity would not be accepted by Allah. amor insisted saying that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had said he had said of them, the things you give them, those types of women are considered as arms for you to be considered. So that as well. Omar was even more angry and said this was a slander against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So they agreed to go to Russia for a resolution. And were asked Ayesha, didn't you hear the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying the things that you give them are considered as charity for you to? He replied, as a light is my witness. Yes, I
I was shocked and started to limit who knows how much I missed hearing from God's Messenger from Allah messenger. While I was busy with my business, he said, Subhana Allah. So you know, because oh, my god hadn't known about this. He was really regretting and thinking, gosh, you know, how many how many things have I missed? Because I was busy, you know, in my business, and I, I couldn't spend more time with Rasulullah sallallahu. And he was
also used to care a lot about the almohads on what many of the mothers of the believers and you know, he started a new system, right? Especially after
haber. He, he started a new system, when a lot of wealth had come in to the possession of the Muslims, a new stipend system, and he gave,
so he gave the mothers of the believers the first stipend, right, because they were the closest to and I saw the last one I sent him. After Persia was conquered money was pouring into the bitter man, and almost created a new system for giving stipends, starting with those who work the hardest for the conquest. And the early Muslim. So I thought that he always prioritized the early Muslims because he felt that that those who supported Islam when it was not fashionable to or when it was not clear that the Muslims would be
it was not clear that the Muslims would be, you know, victorious.
Oh, my gave them priority, right? Because they were the early people to support the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And he began with the prophets household on how to make money and received and it says, 10,000 It doesn't say 10,000 what? In the books that I was looking at,
but it seems like a lot, right? And he used to send Ayesha 12,000 due to her status with the prophets Allah when he sent him.
Charlie, I'm going to try and find you know, 10,000 words.
And tough hasn't what that was, or whatever the currency was of that time, I guess
once he received jewels, and he said, so, you know, like some when there was a battle, there would be things coming into Medina, especially like the the spoils of war, right? And
so once when he received joules, he said, Would you allow me to send this to the Beloved of Allah messenger, and the companions all agreed, so he sent it to his house. And I should rely on her shuddered. You know, she, when she saw this, and she opened the cloth bag full of jewels, she was like, Oh, this, you know, this is this is not something that I want.
She would give most of the wealth that was sent to her, even from her stipend, away in charity. She said, My Lord, do not give me even one more chance to experience this benevolence, please pick my soul before I see another such a gift.
And I think the reason for that was that, you know, I shout at the owner, she, she always remembered the time of the profits are low, and it was so long, right. And one of the key lessons he had taught his wives through the various incidents, and you know, if you've been with us throughout these classes, you'll know that there were various incidents, there was even a time when the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, were requesting from him that, you know, that they were given more wealth and were able to live a little bit more, you know, comfortably.
But on a song Allah sallallahu alayhi, salaam had always refused to be somebody who would live a luxurious lifestyle, and he had insisted that his wives also, well, he had given them the choice, right? Either if they want to stay with him, they would have to live in that way as well. Or they could leave him and he would, he would give them some wealth. And they had all chosen to stay with Russell a lot so that whatever send them
He offered them a piece of land or a monthly wage. So I believe this is when the people have haber the Bani Israel from hybird. We're at the yahood from haber were expelled.
And from the Arabian Peninsula, right, I he then offered them the wives of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam a piece of land or a monthly wage, he gave them the choice. And it says that I should have said chose the monthly wage. And it seems I believe, personally that this must have been because they you know, when you have a monthly wage, you can give charity, right? It's easier to give in charity, if you have a piece of land
even though that land could be worked, and then you know, you could get income from that land,
you know, through agriculture, etc. I think they preferred the idea of being able to quickly give away charity right.
Omar bin Bob was on his deathbed, okay? And you know, in these sessions, we're going to have to fast forward because we're not doing the life of Omar right. We're not doing the life of
Omar off, man, we're focusing on the life of eyeshadow. So that's why, you know, if you if you want to know about the life of Omar, I recommend that you you know, look up there are a number of shoes online who've covered their lives, you know, in quite a lot of detail. But, and also obviously, you can read them in books. Like for example, the
I think it's called the life of the caylus.
Yeah, Bye, sweetie. And there's a translation of that as well available in English. But anyway,
fast forward to only bellhop Bob on his deathbed. And Omar had ruled I believe for 10 years.
So now I shall must be how old
so she was 18 when Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam passed abubaker rule for two years. And then Omar 10 years, so now she must be 30 right 30 years old.
there's a narration
on the authority of our urban my moral od.
I said I saw Omar bin hopper when he was stabbed,
saying, Oh Abdullah bin armor.
So this must be an array
of the loving Omar. I think this source has copied it wrong. Go to the mother of the believers Ayesha. And say, Omar bin Al Capone sends his greetings to you and request her to allow me to be buried with my companions. Right. So this was his last wish he he wanted to be buried next to abubaker and Sula, la sala La Jolla center. So even Omar conveyed the message to Alisha. She said, I had the idea of having this place for myself. But today I prefer him to myself and Yama over myself.
And, and when the loving Omar returned, Omar asked him what what news do you have? He replied, yeah, I mean, she has allowed you to be buried there in other words, and Omar, and he shows you the intelligence of Amr. He said, look nothing. He said nothing was more important to me than to be buried in that sacred place.
But then he said, so when I pass away when I expire, carry me there and pay my greetings to Anisha. Because remember, I she's still living there, right? She's still living in the house, with the graves of a father. And also lots of allow What if send them there. So he said, when I pass away, then take my body there and
pay my greetings to our chat and say, Oh, my bellhop asks permission. And if she gives permission, then bury me there. And if she does not, then take me to the graveyard of the Muslims. So you can see the intelligence of Omer, because he's thinking, no, maybe, because I she was very, very sad, you know, when Omar was stabbed, of course, everyone was sad, but I chose especially sad because, you know, she knew his status with Rasulullah sallallahu, what he was selling and the time of all, that had been a wonderful time for the Muslims.
You know, Omar had brought ease and strength to the Muslims, he had made them very confident and proud and Islam had spread to many, many lands. So Islam was in a situation of strength under Omar, you know, and he didn't have to deal with the kinds of Fitton that Bucher had to have to deal with in his short time as halifa. Right. So it shows a very, very sad, you know, about Omar being on his deathbed. And so on my thought maybe out of him, but you know, like, out of shyness out of a sense of feeling that she has to say yes, she's saying yes. So after I pass away, ask her again, give her a chance, you know, to, to say what she really feels right. It's a panel that shows you the
emotional intelligence of Omer,
or the Alon.
After the death of Omar Ayesha.
It says the Arusha moved to a near by place due to a lack of space and perhaps because she did not feel as comfortable in the house. As when only Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and her father were buried there. In other places, I read that she, she had an extra curtain put into her house, after her mother was buried there and to separate the space that she would live in from, from the three graves. It could be that perhaps initially, they put a curtain and then eventually she moved to a new place. But this place was still the house of I shall still known as the vice chair. because later on, when Hasson passed away, he also asked permission from OSHA to be buried, to be buried
dead. So anyway, we'll get to that later. But that shows you that you know, he's asking for permission because it's still house right.
Now, during the time of month,
during the time of what man now, the time of birth, my of Nando. De Landa was halifa for 12 years, and he was
the brother in law, the son in law sorry, of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. Right. So he's related to Russia in that way, you know that any husbands, daughters, two of our husbands daughters were married to a man right. And so,
so they have that that connection. And, and most of of man's Caliphate was peaceful, you know, he did so many things for the Muslims for the for the betterment of the ummah.
However, towards the last year
years, there was a lot of strife. And there was a lot of controversy. People didn't like his policies, people didn't like his style of leadership.
Some of the decisions he made some of the people he put into power in different places, you know, some of them were his relatives. And while others were, you know, people didn't like that they maybe were not being brought to account in the way that they wanted it. Anyway, there were a lot of kinds of problems brewing problems brewing, okay.
And I'm just going to read straight from this lovely little book, if you give me one minute. And because it's such a nice little, because it's such a nice little narration the way they've
told it that I just feel like I should just read from here because it's just, it's just very well written. And this is a very rare book.
And I've obviously checked everything that's being said in this from other sources as well. And this book is called share the truthful
and it's from Lahore says, by Professor Fazal and it says,
um, so I have no idea how I got it. Okay. It's probably my dad, you know, on his travels, he always like picks up books. So I'm,
I'm going to tell you
about the time of, of man, no
Arusha, but the law on her like most companions did not like some of the policies of man. Right. But she was really against kind of strife and fitna and lawlessness, you know, um, and
even there was even a rebel leader. So you know, there are people basically, who are starting to cause fitna and these are not the Sahaba. Right? These are the, the next generation of people. And you can imagine like the Muslim I spread so much, there's people in all different areas, and
especially certain areas, they were known to be quite troublesome, right. And so these people were not necessarily brought up with the therapy of the Sahaba. Right. You know, there's all sorts of people in the Muslim Ummah now. And some of them don't have that same, you know, so panelo reverence and understanding on hikma of keeping the peace, and having respect for the likes of man, right? Find a bit of fun, he's like, so hello, you know, the one of the greatest of the Sahaba, right? He's a relative of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And the prophet SAW Selim even said about what fun he can do anything. He will go to gender, right.
And yet, these people were any causing fitness, starting rumors, all sorts of stuff was brewing, right. And there was also a group of people who were still kind of, or they were kind of initiating and perpetuating and adding, I would say, merge to the massala, of the Fitts law or the accusation or the rumor that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wasallam, had decided that he was supposed to be
the halifa after him, right. When the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam had not done that explicitly at all right. In fact, he had always indicated abubaker should be the halifa. And anyhow, that's what the Sahaba had decided afterwards, and only had also settled on that and everyone was carrying on, you know, as was fine. Things were fine. But as is the case with troublemakers, you know, they don't have hikma. They don't really care. They just want to win an argument or they just want to cause fitna they just want something to talk about. So they were causing a lot of fitna and there were people partitioning of mine and putting a lot of pressure on him and some even came to OSHA and they
said to her
What do you think about the killing of a Calif if somebody actually came and asked directly about that? And she exclaimed in horror, God forbid this a lot forbid this. How can I be a party to the killing of the leader of leaders? Jani they were trying to sort of, you know, this is what troublemakers do. When they have an opinion, right? They want or they're causing a fitna and they've got a point to make and they're trying to tear somebody down.
They will go and try and just hint at it to somebody, like somebody who's very influential, like I shall have the honor here. And they just want her to make a little statement like, if she had made a statement against her mind, for example, and they could use that right, they would have used that. And this, you can see from that is the position that OSHA had in the hearts of people, right? She's the wife of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, she's like a sacred symbol almost right. If she supports something or if she is seen as being behind something, it really like it's very symbolic for the Muslims.
Anyway, is shorter than his brother, Mohammed bin Abu Bakar. You know him right. He was born
the farewell pilgrimage. He said, he was the son of a smart bento mace, who is who was the widow first she was the widow of Jaffa, it'd be falling and then a walker and married right. And so a Booker had a son with her. Muhammad Ali Bucher, but then abubaker died, you know, like, very soon right, and he died. So it must have been when Mohammed did it was about four I think
Mohammed bin Bucher, he
hadn't really met also laughs and alone. Right? So he's not really considered a Sahabi because he was a baby. And I was literally a baby, like one years old or something.
When the Prophet sallallahu, I was Senate passed away.
But, of course, he's from the family of abubaker. And he was being brought up by Ali, then I'll be followed, because Ali had married the widow of abubaker. Right. Ali had married a smart bent always after abubaker passed away. And you know, this kind of shows you the love that was between them, right? Because Ali literally married his widow and raised on bhaker son right.
Now, um, so I show his brother Muhammad, he was also with the rebel leaders. So those who had kind of trying to gather a rebellion against a monk right, I had lots of grievances against him and they, you know, they were coming to kind of force him to submit you know, or attack him.
Unfortunately, Mohammed bin Booker was also in that group of people who wanted to kind of bring off man or force him to yield to some of the things some of the requests that they had.
Okay. And I shadowed the on her had been very upset about this. And she had said to her brother, you know,
because she was leaving for Hutch around this time. So this is in the last you know, at the end of mine or the other angles life
much and when this rebellion was gathering around Medina right, and these troublemakers had entered Medina when I should have been on her saw that her brother was on their side as well. she advised him against being involved and she actually asked him to accompany her with him with her sorry accompany her to hatch
but he said no. Okay, so he felt very strongly about you know, his course.
I shot a deal on her was on her way back to Medina. When I'll Hatton Zubair met her.
Both of them were the husbands of Ayesha sisters, and they were top ranking companions. So now she has finished her Hutch. Okay. And she's coming back to Medina. But as she's leaving,
they'll have been obey the law and Zubair Bonilla. Well, who are they? Can you tell me who they are the husbands of which of our sisters are they the husband's? So these are her two brother in law's basically right?
If you can just type in the chat.
ball ha will obey the law. He was the husband of
Yeah, so as a baby, not a one. He was the husband of asthma. Right father of ashes, nephew of the lab in his debate. And other nephew odawara Bina Zubair who, you know, they became like students of hers, right?
Or webinars dubare was one of the seven
They'll have been by de la he is
from the same clan as aboubaker. Okay, the bundle team. He's from the same clan. So he's like, family relative as well as I shares, okay. But he was also
married to almost call phone Vince abubaker. So, remember uncle phone was born, when was she born? She was born
just after Obamacare passed away, right? And so she must have grown up, obviously, she lived through the time of
Homer's Caliphate 10 years, and now, you know, of man's Caliphate 12 years, so she must be like in her early 20s. And she was married to thol have been away Dylan. And by the way, as a footnote,
it's also said that or in some sources, it says that Omar bin Al hubub, had proposed to marry on local form Vince aboubaker, you know, the sister, the youngest sister of Ayesha, and he had sent the proposal to Russia. And I sure had refused, you know, because she had said to Omar that he's quite tough, you know, he's quite harsh or tough as a husband. And so she had actually, in the prevented was she had, she had not accepted that her sister should marry him. Okay, but obviously, that doesn't mean that she had a any friction with him. It's just that when it came to marriage, he didn't think he was a suitable he was the right person for her sister, right. But still her had
married her. So now she's coming back to Medina. And all she's about to, and she sees her two brother brothers in law, right? And
they told her about the cold blooded murder of
a halifa of man.
And you can just imagine the shock, right? Because even though the Sahaba knew there was trouble brewing, and they will these rebels gathering and you know, and by the way, Mohammed bin abacha, he had not been involved in the killing of man, he, when, when he had come towards off mode, or when he had entered of man's home, as the rebels had done. Eventually,
Othman had looked at him and said to Muhammad, you know, if your father was here, he would not approve of what you're doing, Muhammad. Okay. And that had been enough to make Mohammed bin abubaker leave. So Mohammed bin and worker was not part of the people, you know, wasn't one of the group of the people who eventually attacked and killed off man been a fun, right. But there was a group of people who had done that, even though this hobby tried to protect the house of man, and at times of mine had told them no, I don't want any protection. I don't want anyone here.
And so Pamela, even his wife had been attacked,
you know, in the gruesome way, her fingers had been cut off.
So Hanalei, you know, and his wife is not a lawyer, and she,
you know, in some of the sources that says that Ayesha had actually
invited her to Islam, she had become a Muslim throughout Asia liner, the wife off,
off man. So it shows you that he was involved in our right she was involved in inviting women especially to, to Islam and people who would visit her she would, you know, she would be, of course, enjoying the good and forbidding the evil. But anyway, so the the death of of man, and the way in which she was killed, was such a shock to the Sahaba. Okay, it was a real shock. And so they'll hands were, they had left macabeu sorry, they had left Medina because Medina had become like a, a toxic environment at that time. You know, there was there were all sorts of troublemakers that entered. And so people like to call her and Zubair they had left and they had come to Makkah, and
they started to discuss, you know, what should happen? No. No.
Months past, okay, seems that months passed. And
the people who had killed off money had not been brought to account. Okay. And
Ali bin Abi Talib, with Ilan, who, of course, he was appointed the halifa. And everyone had made bad to him, right. But he was because he was trying to sort out so many things. And there was a lot of strife and a lot of a lot of things to sort out. And because he felt it was unwise due to certain reasons, he had not
been able up to now to bring the killers of of man to account. And this was something that really pained some of the Sahaba right, people like Ayesha Ghana. And, you know, it's just my own reflection that I think one of the key reasons for that was,
you know, first of all,
they just couldn't believe that the sanctity of somebody like a man, right, could have been taken so lightly by these, you know, hooligans, basically, right, who claimed to be Muslims. And,
you know, that was something that really like, they just felt people like that should not be able to get away with that. And the longer that we leave this, the more likely is that they will get away with it. Right? That was Those were the main reasons, but also because, you know, yeah, the longer you leave it, the more those people have a chance to flee. But I also believe that the Sahaba felt very bad, you know, that they had not been able to protect off man for the long haul, even though many of them had tried. Okay.
You know, obviously, when something like this happens, people look back, don't they? And they think I could have done this, we should have done that, you know, it's just human nature to think, you know, and I don't think any of this harbor expected, except for mine who had already been told by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that this would happen to him. I don't think they really expected people to rebel to such an extent that they would actually kill
the crates a hobby of mine, right. So all of these things were very, really painful to some of the senior Sahaba.
so they thought her and Zubair, they had suggested to Alisha or the liner that they should raise a huge number of men, right, like an army. And they should go
to the area where they believed where they knew that the killers of Othman are from and bring them to account.
It says here, the leader, the leaders have been omya, most of whom had fled to Mecca, joined this army. Okay. So, you know, the bundle man, they're the ones who eventually become the intermediates, right? The key lifts afterwards. And, you know, they had a lot of support in Damascus, and in that sort of area, okay. And that's because, you know, while we was the governor, and all of you, I know, and he was a very good leader, people loved him. And so he had a lot of support. Okay. But, um, the other people who were kind of very against him, and we're kind of where a lot of the fitness place where a lot of the fitness had come from, was from Basra right there, where modern day Iraq is now.
And that's where the killers had come from. Right. So
are you sure shouted the onhub. Her plan, or her plan with what they had all planned together? Was that they would march in, and I believe that this was a type of protest, right? They saw this as a type of protest because, you know, they wanted to make a big kind of statement, right? That we want these people brought to account, they want you to bring those people to account. But also they want you to make the statement that No, these rebels are not in charge of Medina. They're not going to take over Medina, you know, um,
so when people saw, okay, and then obviously they were
Zubair and others, they then said, Look, Let's march to bazaar. Okay, Let's march to Basra. And so they began to go towards Basra with this large group of men. Now,
when people heard and you can just imagine, right, when people heard that the wife of the prophet SAW Allah when he was selling mother of the believers
is part of this group of people who are marching towards Basra. Okay, they were like, We want to join this, you know, because so how we can imagine this was the first time that killing of this kind had happened.
Amongst the Muslims, you know, it was a tragedy, a huge tragedy, it was a calamity. And people just couldn't believe it, that they had come to this, right. And they all as they heard that it should have been on her, as I said, you know, who's very strong symbol of muscle loss of loading synonyms household when they saw that she is, but she is also supporting this, right, this call, even though she wasn't leading it at all, you know, she was more like a symbolic figure, who was in this group to give them support. People began to join as they were traveling, the people just, you know, came out and said, We want to join as well, we want to join, we want to join and so you can imagine like,
this huge group of people became a huge, huge army of people, okay. And
men from far and near started pouring into the army. So it was true soon, a strong force marching on and on the army passed by a village pond.
Okay, the dogs of the neighborhood started barking. So they probably stopped somewhere, you know, to encamp there. And suddenly, they started hearing the sound of these dogs howling and barking in the distance.
As their angry howls reached her ears, a forgotten prophecy of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam suddenly came to our issues mind.
years ago, he had said, as he sat in the midst of his waves one day,
I don't know which one of you will be barked at, by the dogs of holub.
What paces this? asked, I shot anxiously.
Whoa, up came the reply.
So now I she's there, and they come in. And she's asking what Where are we? And they say we are at a place called holub. If you're suddenly froze, then I must go back. She gasped.
So now I shall just hide in though, I've obviously made a mistake, because I sort of lost a lot when he was Selim had in the negative, told her that, you know, one of you wise is going to be in a place where the dogs of hope are gonna balk at you. And he had said it in a way that this was a bad thing, right. So I should have been on her started to just get very, very upset. And she just wanted to leave. She wanted to leave. But
But Hannah Zubair and others strongly pleaded with her.
And, you know, she just said, No, I'm not moving from here. And so the army came to a halt.
They really, really tried to convince her they said, Look, we're gonna bring peace to the oma. If we can bring the people who killed off the man to justice, then the owner will have peace because, you know, they won't be that sense of injustice left, right. And that kind of,
you know, the the people who killed off man will not be getting away with it. And then that will be a big sign as well to the other rebels. They can't just come in and cause more fitna, right. So, you know, they really, really, really tried to convince her and eventually, she agreed. Okay, she agreed. And they continued to march.
But man been Hanif, the governor of Basra so now the governor buzzer he's hearing that there's this massive army coming towards Vasa. Right and he knows that I should have done hmm is there. So he knows that they're, you know, great people. They're not. They're people who have a good intention. Right. But
so he sent a group or he sent somebody to go and meet with that person.
And I show that on her made a speech there and it was such a powerful speech
that you know really moved everyone who was there.
One of the members of the deputation came over to her,
they oh okay so basically a lot of people from that deputation from that group of messengers sent by off Mandan Hanif, the governor of bussola.
A lot of those men when they heard Aisha speech, they were so convinced by her, they actually left
that group or that army and they joined it shut up the others, group of people. So Pamela,
but the governor of mine, Ben Hanif, he decided that it was his duty to prevent that army from entering the city. Right. Obviously, he has to keep the kind of sovereignty right, he has to keep his sovereignty, sovereignty and the order.
So the two armies, the two groups, the people of Basra, and then the army that had come with full hand Zubair without sugar in it.
They stood facing one another, they'll hands will bear came out and addressed the governor's army.
This produced an uproar. Seeing this issue stepped forward. There was such dignity in her words, that soon there was a hush on all sides, you can see that she had this kind of effect on people, first of all, because she was mother of the believers, right. But it was also because Annie, she was very eloquent. When she spoke, she spoke when knowledge and it convinced people you know, and she really felt strongly that these people need to be brought to account and that it's their duty to bring these people to account.
There was such dignity in her words that soon there was a harsh on all sides.
She ended her address with the words Yes, listen very carefully. The thing you should do now, and which it would be improper to ignore is to arrest the Assassins of man and enforce the commandments of Allah.
The effect was spectacular. There were loud shouts of Yes, she is right. She is perfectly right. And in no time, half of that Governor's army had joined, I shut it down on this side.
So to be more accurate, initially, when the deputation had come, one of the members had listened to Ayesha speech, and I joined her side. Now, when there were two armies facing one another,
and her members of half of the army basically joined, I shut up the learners group.
The governor, however, refused to give him for three days, the two armies stood face to face. On the third day, it was decided to send a man to Medina to find out.
So anyway, this is so many details that
I would say are completely unnecessary for us to go into. Right. But suffice it to say, okay, that
the governor of water had received orders from Alli, online who not to hand over the city, okay, because he's trying to keep the sovereignty as well. He's trying to keep control and keep things orderly, right. And he wanted to deal with the people who killed off man by the law, no, but and he was, he had his own opinion as to how that should be done. Okay. And he needed to do it in a certain way. And in a certain time, he didn't feel that this was the right time, because he was dealing with a lot of emergencies. Now, I'm going to pause here, and I want to I'm going to say that look, when we talk about these types of matters between this Harbor, right, I'm not going to comment on you
know, why didn't so so and so do this and that person should have done this or that, you know, stuff. That's not the way that the believers talk about this Harbor, right.
I love the way that one of this you described how we think of the disputes and the kind of difference of opinion, and even some of the, you know, terrible things that ended up happening.
You know, God
This time, he said, You know, when your parents argue, what if you have ever witnessed your parents having an argument?
You know, the way you think about that, you know, you, you know they've had they have arguments, or they have an argument in front of you, it gives you pain, you know, you don't want to
take sides, right? You're not going to take sides. And each person has their point of view, right?
But you respectfully, are going to keep a certain distance from that, right? from their kind of arguments. It's between them, right? In a similar way, we, we feel about the Sahaba in the sense that, you know, they are like our elders, right. They're the great people who went before us, and they had good intentions. And, you know, some things ended up transpiring that are quite painful, and difficult, and they found those things painful and difficult as well. But we were not there to see, you know, who, what, why, you know, why did someone so do this, and why did so not do this? And, you know, suffice it to say that all of them had the best interest of the mark in mind. So
inshallah, we're going to finish the story of the, or we're going to begin and then finish the story of the Battle of the camel. Okay, which wasn't really a battle, it wasn't meant to be a battle, and inshallah, next time, and we will see what effect the Battle of the camel had the so called Battle of the camel. And then,
you know, we're going to go on to show the scholarship. So in the last minute or so, if there are any questions. If there's anything that I'm not sure about now, I will only look into it for you. And, you know, bring the answer for you next time. But yeah, it's a fascinating topic. You know, it's really a fascinating topic. And I encourage you to do some reading around it. But be careful, because obviously, there are certain groups that misrepresent the story and cause a lot of harm, because there are a lot of lies made up about this period as well and about the Sahaba. By, obviously, not by true believers, right, because the believers never talk about the Sahaba in that
way. And they don't doubt the Sahaba his intentions, right, because that's the Quran insists on their excellence and their status. So in short last is if there are no questions and charlo will wrap up with that,
and I will bid you farewell.
