Oh I should I should
I should I should
peace be upon him we
are amazing father was
known as the truth
Okay I will be led him in a shape Lani rajim Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem and hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah the sisters are Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. And thank you for joining me once again, for this the 20th session on the life of a sharp or the land on one minute.
So last time, we had been looking at the Battle of the camel, I'm very aware that we only have like three sessions left, I believe. And, you know, we have, you know, we want to get through as much as possible, we want to, you know, complete the life of our mother Ayesha.
Of course, we're gonna be able to go into every little detail, you know, of every aspect, but, inshallah, I hope over the last weeks, you will have covered and felt that you have gotten to know our mother, Ayesha, babalon ha, and at least the broad kind of themes of her life, the broad events that happened, and an insight into her phip as well, which is going to come up in Sharla in the next session. So just to
recap, we had been talking about the Battle of the camel, and
we said that basically four months after, you know, mobs had entered Makkah, they had besieged of man lavilla on whose house and eventually assassinated him. And this was 36 years after hegira
I showed the man who was still in lockup because you'd be making Hajj right.
And because of the fact that there were so many mobs and like
so many people had come into Medina sorry, into Medina.
Yeah, sorry. I think I said MK at the beginning, but I meant four months after the mobs had entered Medina, which is well from Andhra, the man who was they have received his house and assassinated him. I should have done I was in my car, she was on Hajj. And she didn't return to Medina because it was too dangerous.
And some of the others how about as well. They started to leave Medina because of the danger and because of the terrible atmosphere and the things that had gone on.
Amongst them was dull Hmm. And so bad. We said both her and her husband were her brothers in law. Now I'm not sure if
if he was still married at this stage to Ayesha sister smart, because I know that they did eventually divorce. But I don't know exactly when they divorced. They divorced that at some point when
the login as a bear was an adult. So I think it could be that he was no longer married to us not at this stage.
But you know, he was the father of her nephews. Right. And
it was her sister willfulness husband, right? And then elderly you know, by this time as a bourbon alarm, and they'll have in a way they love their elderly, they're not young men. But you know,
they were I showed their own house brothers in law. And they had come to Makkah, and they, although they had pledged allegiance to Ali rodilla on hold, it was now the halifa
they have come to Makkah and they were
encouraging Ayesha, the learner, because it had been like, a few months after the killing of man or the lion who they were encouraging our show the LAN ha, to join them in a March that they were about to conduct to bust up. And this is where they believed that the instigators or the killers of man are the last word. And they wanted to March that to make a big kind of statement, and possibly to bring to account those who had killed with one or the other. I know
They felt that things were being delayed too much, and that the people who had killed with mine would be would get away with it.
another thing to bear in mind is the reason why been Mayor would have also been supporting this, okay, this kind of March is because who are been omiya? If you think about it, who are they? When we say that will May, as you say, but not only are we saying what are we up in ob Sophia, who was from the, you know, from Romania? Why would they care about this issue? Does anybody know?
Which family whose family are they? Basically?
So, I'm gonna just tell you,
they are, of course, the family of man, right? The clan of man or the law, who is the is the bootable media, right? And so that's why they care a lot about the fact that, you know, one of their kinsmen was killed. And
what are we gonna do? sofiane, who was the governor of, I believe, Damascus at the time. So a sham he
he didn't pledge allegiance to Isley or Delano. Okay. And they're both from the Sahaba, of course. So we don't really want to comment on there, kind of,
you know, any kind of dispute that went on between them. But we know that, you know, the fact that we've won the lotto and not been his killers have not been brought to justice. This was something that was really bothering,
especially his client, right, his, his tribesmen open omya. And
so you know, they weren't supportive this as well.
I shut down her when she was traveling, I want you to kind of imagine,
she would have a, of course, you would be on a camel. But the camel would have a kind of a little house, or I don't know what to call it. It's called the whole virgin in Arabic. But think in English, it's called a holder, or something like that. You can look it up online, if you just type it in, you can even find like images of
the sort of little,
little kind of carriage or
curtain kind of box, I would say, in which she would be. And this is because Annie, she was mother of the believers. And so there was an extra level of hijab, right? So not only do the mothers of the believers cover themselves when they go out, or when they're in the presence of men who are not there mat rounds, but they also
have a curtain between them and others.
Or when they're traveling, they would have, they would be within another kind of external box, right? The whole image. And so, and it said that her whole dodge and her camera were decorated, you know. So it's very clear for people to see this is the mother of the believers.
How much right and this is her camel. And he said on the way there, you know, there were about 600 people.
But the numbers swelled as people saw that I showed the learner is with this group of people. And we know that she set out with the intention of bringing all these sides together, you see, so the bundle may already kind of there's already kind of becoming a split in the oma right. And so I should have done her she thought that if if through her and through the presence of mind Skinner's could be brought to justice, then there would be a big reconciliation between the people who were very upset that the man had not been his killers have not been brought to justice, and between early and ideal angle, and it would settle some of the pain that the almost feeling, you know.
as she was traveling up with this group, the numbers swelled to 30,000. It is set, right? Because obviously people saw when we're not many is here, you know, this is a cause that we care about. And she she is endorsing it, and it must be good, right? So when they joined. And we said that at one point. Some they had stopped somewhere and some dogs that started to bark and actually the owner had asked, you know, who Where are we? And they said we are in the place called how up and she said oh Take me back. Take me
back, because you remembered a hadith or
an incident when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had said to her or said to his wives, what will be the state of one of you, and the dogs of hope will bark at you.
And he said it in a disapproving way. So, I should have done her realize that she, it was her that he was talking about, and that he that she should not have come, she should not have come here. And that probably, you know, where she had come now, it would be a lost cause, right.
But everyone succeeded in convincing her to continue.
The government of Butler sent an army out to defend the city, we said, and half the army ended up joining, I should have been on his group, because she gave a very soul stirring speech in which she, you know, implored them, and they better natures, for her cause for the cause that they had come for.
For three days, they only stood face to face, and eventually, the army with a shot of the land have
entered the buzzer.
Now, I didn't have a deal on who he was very disturbed by this, you know, he was in he was in another city, he was upset. And obviously, like, you know, it's kind of it feels like a an attack on his sovereignty, right? In the sense that he is the Holy Father, and he gets to be the one who decides when certain things happen, and his city of bosarge should not be taken over right by any other group. So he had it towards phosphite as well. And at the time, he had 20,000 20,000, strong army with him. Okay.
And so, so panela, this was going to be the first time that two Muslim armies would come face to face in this way.
I should call her and Isabel they explained, okay, what their objective was, when I asked them, he explained that their objective was to punish the killers of man. And through that, to reconcile the oma to reconcile, you know, the various sides that had become very upset that the other had not taken action.
And they felt that they were enjoying the good and forbidding the evil.
And, but at the same time, 1000s of those who had been involved in the killing of othmar, okay, well, who had been supporters of that? They joined, I lead, radi Allahu, on whose army, okay. And they were known to be in his writings, he would not have known exactly who they were. But they had secretly joined his army, and people knew about that.
in the end, you know, there were some communications between the two groups. And they agreed, they agreed to actually come to terms of peace, you know, because it said to each other, the unhappy you know, for the sake of,
you know, this cause will we cause so much killing, we don't want to do that. And in the end, you know, they, they both had agreed that, you know, they'll come to some kind of
reconciliation. However, in the middle of the night, what happened was that
some people who were trying to cause trouble so probably
the people who were responsible for the killing of Othman
who were in the ranks of alley or the llanos army, they in the middle of the night came and they,
you know, massacred, they massacred people on both sides. Okay, they killed people on both sides. So when the armies woke up in the morning, they fought each army in the confusion for that the other had betrayed them, right. They had been in the middle of reconciliation and in the middle of kind of making peace and coming to some kind of common terms. But in the middle of the night, they felt that the other side had betrayed them and been treacherous and had killed some of them. And so this of course, caused, you know sick the situation to go completely out of hand. And fighting broke out. Okay, people obviously wanted to vent
the deaths of their, their own, you know, comrades and their brothers.
I shudder the line hand only when they saw this when they saw the fighting breaking out, they were horrified. They were horrified.
You know, it was said to I should I did on her that, you know, mother of the believers, if you ride into the middle of the battlefield,
then perhaps the sight of you seeing, you know, your whole dodge there and your camel there in the middle of the battlefield will be so like, shocking for everybody that this is the sort of loss of the law sometimes wife, you know, it's the mother of the believers have come up. And how can we fight in such a situation? Perhaps it will cause the
battle to stop. Okay. So somebody said that to a shirt or the Lana at some point during the battle, perhaps at the beginning, or at some point early on the line who came across a Zubair and he reminded him he reminded him that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had told him that one day he would fight early in an unjust war, okay, that they would come face to face and that it would be in the right, but the longer and Zubair bring on one, when he heard this, he said, I had up I have forgotten this until now. I just remembered this now that the law told me this. And so he left the battlefield, and he abandoned the battle and he didn't take part but he was killed as he was
And as for bellhop, Ali or the line who said to him, oh, tell her how could you consent to fight with the family of laws messenger with the wife of Allah's Messenger sallallahu It was so them while your own wife while your own family is safe at home.
And, you know, though, how he really like realize that this is just chaos, and this isn't going to be this isn't a just battle, you know, and he left as well. He decided to leave as well. But he was also killed as he was leaving.
So Pamela and Alina DeLand, when he heard about their deaths, he was very, very upset. He was very upset as well as his cousin. You know,
he's only advanced because it's very big. And he's the, he's the son of Sophia.
Right? And he's also the son of a worm, who is the brother of a deja lambin whale it is the brother of Khadija Bitcoin, right? So in two ways, he's related to any profits are stolen, and also to ID on the line.
you know, so he was very upset, very upset that this it had come to this that the greatest Sahaba, right, two of the 10 promised paradise had been killed in this way.
And I share what I did on her in the end, okay, her holded she had
camel to the middle of the battlefield. And what happened was a people began, the arrows started coming and actually supposed to lay the end, hold Dutch had camels and sorry, had arrows sticking out of it had arrows sticking out of it.
It looked like some, you know, people described it as looking like a hedgehog. And that must have been a very shocking and upsetting sight, you know, for those people who have who were present who, who had the presence of mind, in that situation, it would have been a very shocking sight. Because how did it really come to this? That was sort of lost a lot. What insolence beloved wife, you know, that even her own safety was going to be at risk. Right.
But, you know, it didn't immediately cause the end of the battle until some people came, and they chopped the legs off the camel of Asia, or the Donna.
And the camel and the whole Dutch came crashing down onto the ground. Right.
And a mother I wish I must have fallen right at that point. And this is why this battle is called the Battle of the camel because it's ended. It ended when
I showed that on his camera, which was the most prominent kind of symbol in the middle of this battlefield
when it fell, okay, and the whole image came crashing down.
Are you got the alarm when he saw this he sent?
How many been on the backer? I should have been on his brother, right, brother. He sent Mohammed bin Abu Bakar, who was on with Elisa earlier the US Army. He sent him to see if it shows okay and to to get her out of the whole dodge. So
he went and he put his hand into the whole dodge. And it said that I should have gotten her I was upset. She said, you know, whose insolent hand is this? Right. And her brother said, it is your brother? Are you unhurt? She said yes. And so she was brought out
and taken to a very safe spot.
And only for the long haul, he treated her with the utmost respect, he treated her with the utmost respect, as we would expect from a gentleman like
he sent Mohammed bin Avi Bucher and 40 of the noble women of bus wrapped a company it should have been on her back to Medina. And, you know, there was a point when they met and, you know, I shut down her said, May Allah forgive you. And he said to her, me and you to Allah forgive you to, they knew that, you know, the intentions had been good. And they had not wanted it to come to this. Okay, but that some treacherous people had caused fitna, and then matters have gotten out of hand. And they will also realize the the terrible nature of this clash, because it was the first time that Muslims were fighting one another. Right. And, of course, they would have felt that they had some
role in that even though it hadn't been their intention, right for that to happen.
And I didn't know the man who also remember that when the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam had once told him that there will one day be a dispute between you and the Arusha. Okay. And when he heard that he had said to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam if that happens, and I must surely be in the wrong, right, so Pamela, but Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said, No, but when that happens,
take her back to her home, take her back to her home. So because of this, we'll see all the prophets of Allah, whatever send them to Ali, Ali and Adil on who made sure that I showed her the line how I was treated with the utmost respect, that she was protected with the gods. And that her brother led the caravan with her in it back to Medina. And that 40 of the noble women of Basra that would have included people from his own family, right.
Were to accompany I show it again, huh? Back to Medina. And this was as protection for her right.
So how many rooms rumors began to spread about the tensions between Russia or the Manhattan alley.
And you know, people started trying to cause fitna
and trying to use it for political reasons as well.
And it should have been on her, you know, she said, when she was talking about what had just happened, etc. She said to the to the people, my children.
Unfortunately, we hurt one another.
We experienced upsetting incidents, and we became very tired.
After this moment, no one should look at each other with malice or fight about what happened or the wrong statements others made.
Surely there is no problem between me and Ollie more than the normal matter between a woman and her in laws.
He is the most auspicious man for whom I wish goodness and well being right so I should have done her saying, you know, there isn't like a big problem between me and Adi. It's if there is anything is something similar to what happens in any family when, you know you have in laws right.
Holly Ron, who when he heard about this, he said she is telling the truth.
And I swear to God, I swear to Allah, how beautifully she expressed it. Surely she is the wife of Allah messenger in this world and the hereafter.
Okay, so we see that they treated one another with the utmost respect. And they realized that, you know, the situation I've gotten out of hand and that have not been their intention.
Now, when I showed up did on her returned,
you know, she was full of regret, she was really full of regret for this entire episode.
Whenever the verses of the Quran from certain Azov would be recited, you know, certain zarrab
I believe I am number 32.
about, you know, the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam ending it telling them to stay in their homes, while current nafi booty cannot write, she would stop and begin to cry so much that her clothes became soaked with tears.
And she decided after this, that she would not be buried next to the profits on the lower center is grief, which is where she had wanted to be buried eventually, when she passed away. And she decided she would be buried in the cemetery with you know, that the other wives of the Prophet SAW some in the space that was set out for them.
And after this incident, she never got directly involved with the affairs of like with political matters and political affairs
and matters of the state.
And instead began to focus on teaching knowledge, right, passing on the Sunnah of the Prophet sallahu wa sallam, to the next generation. She did however, write letters sometimes, and she would exhort the political leaders, right. So she didn't completely stop having any kind of political influence. However, when it came to these type of matters, you know, matters of fighting and,
you know, disputes and political decisions and those type of things. She, she stayed away from those
when added to the line, who's killed, and that happened, you know, soon after this
battle of the camel in the Battle of Sif, after the Battle of Safin, he was killed by some of the storage.
Right? We don't have time to really go into the reasons for that battle and the aftermath, etc, you can you can look that up yourself. But anyway, suffice it to say that when he was killed, she was very upset. She was very upset. And she would send letters to vulnerable media, she would send letters Somalia, who became the highly sought after Ali Baba and who,
and she would rebuke him, you know, for any thing that she felt was, was not right, in the way he had handled different issues that that had come up at the type of alley and after the time of it, or the llama.
we know that the people who killed it around who they were the hostage right, this group called the cordage. And she used to refer to that group as the Han Audi's. Okay, because they were from the war, most of them were from a place called home, all right, in Europe, right. And they, you know, the characteristic of the whole marriage was that they basically believed they were the only true Muslims. They were very, very harsh, you know, they were very, very kind of had a very strict interpretation of things. They believed that a Muslim who commits a major sin
is basically has basically left the fold of Islam, right, which is against the the leaf of Allison will Gemma
and so they considered a person who commits a major sin as an apostate. And they believe that hence they deserved
capital punishment right deserve to be killed.
But this was considered obviously extreme and, you know, incorrect by the majority of the Muslims and by jemar.
So because they were known with those kind of characteristics, and sometimes when certain people came to each of their own house, you seem to be behaving in an extreme way. She would ask them, are you one of the huddled ease, right? You might notice that in some of her ahaadeeth so
For example, once a woman came and asked her, is it okay for me to pray during my menses, if I feel I can, can I pray during my menses? And, you know, I should have been and I was shocked, because she never heard Muslim women asking questions like this before. Okay. And she asked the lady, you know, are you under the whole race? In other words, are you basically from the whole origin of these shady people who have these extreme interpretations?
So, yeah, so that that's what happened with the Hawaiian origin. That's the kind of reference to the Hollies that you'll find in some of our children and has had the, during the life that have more Avia or the landlord, and you know, he was a Sahabi.
He would try to win over, I should have done her support.
And, you know, once he sent her, it is said, 100,000 dirhams. Right? as a gift.
But she was very upset by this. She didn't like this kind of gifting, you know. And she used to rebuke myopia. She continued to kind of, enjoin the good and the evil and she didn't allow him trying to be very kind towards etc, to affect
her sense of what was right and wrong. Right when it came to advising him
because he used to visit turtle so in Medina, okay, and remember, whenever somebody visited I should have done I was behind the screen.
Yeah, it was behind the screen.
Abdullah bin Abu Bakar had already been killed in about 12 PGD after one of the battles he was her brother, remember, is a smart idea Alon has brother full brother, right.
Mohammed bin Abu bakkar was then killed as well. Okay. He was the governor of Egypt, okay, appointed by Ali. So when I leave the line, who became the Khalifa here the appointed Mohammed bin abubaker.
Who is the son of a smart bent on mace. Right, who is a Booker son, right?
Who are you not Iran who brought up as we've already, you know, described in past lessons.
He was the governor of Egypt, but when why we are the land who became the halifa his governor removed Mohammed bin Abu Bakar from that position. And because, you know, Mohammed Abu Bakr had refused to pledge allegiance
to that government and to Malia, okay, and he refused to be, you know, loyal to what have we got out of the oval. He was executed. He was executed by some of the governors of Mario or the Mario or the land has men.
And the reason why I mentioned this is first of all, to let you know how Mohammed bin abubaker was killed. And obviously, this would have been a painful thing fire shut up the line. Hmm. But also to show you her sense of justice because
you know, it's not clear when this happened, but it seems it was, you know, sometime after the killing of Mohammed bin Avi Becca.
And this hadith is narrated in Sai Muslim, that of the Ramadan, even Shima side says, He came. He said, I came to Ayesha while the alarm on her and asked her about something. Okay, so he came to Medina to ask her, I showed her about something. And she said, Where are you from? I said, I'm from Egypt. He said, what was the behavior of your governor towards you in this war of yours?
I'm not sure which war she's referring to here. But she was referring to maybe
a recent battle. And he said, we did not experience anything bad from him.
If the camel of one of our men died, he would give him another camel. If any one of us lost his slave, he would give him another slave. If anyone was in need of the basic necessities of life, he would provide them he would provide him with that provision.
She said the treatment that was meted out to my brother Mohammed even other Bucher does not prevent me from telling you what I heard from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu. It he was so he said, in this house of mine.
Oh Allah, Who
against some kind of control over the affairs of my people,
and it's hard upon them be hard upon him, and whoever gains some kind of control over the affairs of my people and is kind to them, be kind to him.
Mama No, he said, commenting on this Hadith, this indicates that we should mention the virtues of good people, and not refrain from doing so because we dislike them, etc. they differed concerning the way in which Mohammed bin Abu Bakar was killed, it was said that he was killed in a battle, and that he was killed as a prisoner of war after the battle. So, basically, the governor who had killed
her, when I showed it on her heard, that he was actually a very kind of governor to these people now. And that he fulfilled their needs, whether he was easy going on back, etc.
Even though he had killed her brother, she still mentioned this Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, which you could say it was in this Governor's favor, in a way, right? Because this hadith is saying that any one who has a position of leadership over the Muslims and is kind to them, right? And is just and, you know, makes makes things easy for them, etc. A lot. The prophets are Sonam had made the offer that person, right. And so Pamela, this really shows you how I should have the honor, even though she's a woman, you know, people say people have this.
And it is generally true, you know, that women are more sensitive or the, you know, they have certain personality traits.
And certainly emotions in a heightened sense of emotion, especially with regards to family members, etc.
even despite that, it didn't prevent her from
speaking the truth and conveying a Hadith of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam right. loyalty to knowledge, loyalty to conveying the truth was greater than her loyalty to you know, emotional connections with her with her own family. So, Pamela
and the government in question here was why we have been fooled Ah, who, who killed Muhammad bin Aviva
I believe it was Mario, who asked
it should have done it not to give him some advice.
And I should have been on her had said, Whoever seeks the pleasure of Allah and displeases the people, Alo protect him from the people. And whoever seeks the pleasure of the people by earning the displeasure of Allah and Allah will leave him to the people. Right, and this hadith is intimidate. You can see that she's kind of rebuking him in a way okay. In other words, she's saying that don't you be of the people who you know, in order to please the people, you're doing something that's wrong, right.
And, as for her brother of the rathmann been abubaker
some things that I've managed to find about him are that
basically, when Marya love Ilan, when he was, seems like maybe when he was close to death for when he was, you know, at some point during his philosopher, he wanted to appoint his own son, as the successor as his successor and he wanted people before he even died to pledge allegiance to him, okay. Now, this, of course, would have alarmed many of the Sahaba who are still alive. Why? Because they know that the philosopher that the rulership of the Muslims was not meant to be some kind of dynastic, you know, dynasty, right? It wasn't meant to be a dynastic succession or successor ship, right. It wasn't meant to be like, Kings basically. Right? where basically you, you know, the heir
to the throne is the eldest son of the king, right.
you know, at the same time, while we are the lango, his view was that he didn't want to leave the Muslim Ummah without someone in place because he felt that would cause even more fitna, okay. And he believed that it should be his son.
So, his government in Medina
My one bin al hakam.
Okay, who was a cousin of mine or the line? Oh, he had demanded or declared in the masjid that people should pledge allegiance to what are we as successor, right.
Who is I believe he has it right. Is he been Marya?
he even said in his speech that, you know, this beta, this kind of choosing of the successor and people agreeing to it is the son of a worker and Omer. Okay. Meaning and what he meant by that is that it's the son of a worker in order to indicate who should be the successor after them. Right.
So Paula, but of the handing of the Booker, who is it his brother, right, he's Irish, it's full brother.
He stood up, he couldn't bear to hear, you know, somebody's saying about his father that, you know, this practice, which is basically about,
you know, turning the filata into a type of Kingdom, right. Um, he couldn't believe that that was being attributed or linked to his father, right. So he stood up and he said, No, this is not the son of,
of Bucher and Omar, this is the son of heraclius and kisara. Right, this is the son of the kings right? Not not Of The Holy Father actually done.
And because he said this, Marwan had him arrested, or he interrupted the his guards or his people to arrest
the right man being a broker and have to remember, every broker began to run away. And where did he run?
Where is the safest place he could run to? It is, of course, the house of I shadow the man. Now I said in a previous class, I believe that it shouldn't be done that had moved out of
her original house.
That's what it said in some of the sources that I read. But then, in others, it seems like either she still used to spend time there. Or perhaps she hadn't moved out yet, you know.
But anyway, in this situation, she was there. And of the Robin abacha, he entered her house, obviously he can because he is her Mahara. Right. And, you know, he hit in her house, and my wife and his men are standing outside the house and shouting, asking for their hand to be handed over.
I showed them on her, you know, she shouted back. And she refused. She said, No, I'm not going to give my brother over. And my wife said, and what my wife ended up doing, which was, you know, a nasty thing to do. He basically said,
and, you know, my wife is not one of the Sahaba right. So this is now the generation after right?
he basically mentioned the verse in the Quran, which talks about a man who is insolent and insulting towards his own father.
And he said something like, you know, have the right man is the is the man who's being referred to in this verse, right? Otherwise, he's trying to, like, say something nasty, because obviously, he's standing outside, I should have done his house. He's the governor. And he's powerless to enter. Right? Because even though you know, there were some terrible things happening in that time. People still had the basic decency to not enter the house of the mother of the believers. Right.
So basically, he's just trying to get his own back right. Trying to say something have a dig out of the rat man.
This from saying hello, Buhari. Okay, it says Marwan had been appointed as the governor of hijas. By Wailea, he delivered a sermon and mentioned as he had been, why are we so that the people might take the oath of allegiance to him as the successor of his father?
And the ranking Obama told him something where upon Marwan ordered that he be arrested, but have the right man entered his house and they could not arrest him. But no one said, it is he have the right man about whom Allah revealed this verse. And you mentioned the verse which is
about a man who's insolent towards his father. On that I should have the man has said from behind the screen a lot did not reveal any
Anything from the Quran about us and she means about the family of abubaker except what was connected with the declaration of my innocence from the slander, right.
And I think the idea that
you know Marwan was referring to is inserted Lakoff, 4617. And the translation is,
but the one who says to his parents off to you, Do you promise me that I will
be brought forth from the earth when generations before me have already passed on into oblivion? While they call to allow for help, and to their son, Walter, you believe Indeed, the promise of Alma is true. But he says, This is not but the legends of the former people. So basically, it's just, you know, it's a, it's an eye about somebody who's rejecting
the message from their own parents. So it's upon Allah, he was just trying to get his own back then he just made up that, you know, this verses about the Roman and I showed the learner who is obviously much more knowledgeable,
answered back very quickly, and in a very sharp way. And so no, the only verse that you can say is about our family is about my innocence. In other words, it's something positive about our family, right? nothing negative.
hello, Farren. Just gonna take a little breather, and see if there are any questions.
I think we've covered quite a lot, you can see that I should have done her in the time of muawiya. You know, by now, I think a lot of the Sahaba. Right, had basically decided that they were not going to get involved in anything that would cause killing. And, you know, that could potentially cause any kind of fitna, right. And they had retreated and become, like, you know, scholarly figures, who were teaching who people could refer to who would exhort people who would even exhort the leaders, but they wouldn't get directly involved in some of the political kind of things, right. Not all of the Sahaba did that. But some of them did, especially those who were very knowledgeable, you know,
you'll see that that was one of their characteristic, they realize that they're the strongest, and the greatest thing they could do was to convey the Sunnah of also a loss of a lot, whatever selling to the next generation, in a faithful way, right before this sooner would be lost, because they can already see the massive changes that had already taken place. Right. And so inshallah, in the next session, you will see
how I showed, you know, who has students were,
what influence she had on the mother. Also, we will look at some of her key opinions and how she corrected some of the Sahaba. Right. And there's a famous book all about that, and I will share that with you as well next time. So please join me if you have any questions, I'm going to.
Okay, some people are saying they can't hear anything. Is that is that true?
I hope that isn't the case.
Can you just let me know if you if you still have no sound?
Okay, um, the law. So I think the people who can't hear her couldn't hear there must be something wrong on your end. But you know, anything you must remember that this video is the video from this class will probably be up very soon. Okay. You can also listen to this class, by the way, via Muslim Central, okay, if you go to Muslim Central podcasts, wherever you get your podcast, so Spotify, I think Google have got podcasts and Apple podcasts. If you look up Fatima barkatullah in Muslim Central podcasts,
you can subscribe to that podcast and it's an audio version of this class as well as every talk that I give. Okay, I usually upload
to that podcast so you know you can sometimes it's more convenient instead of watching a video to kind of just listen right as you're doing something.
So yeah, so feel free to subscribe to that and you
you can always listen to this class via that channel or via my YouTube channel or The Omen our YouTube channel, so
are issued at the last camels legs? The rebels?
I don't know what you mean by the rebels? Do you mean the people who had killed off man by the I know the you know the people who had joined the army from them? I don't think it was them necessarily actually in some of the books that says that it was alila DeLand, who who constructed for her camel to be for her camels legs to be chopped off.
Okay. And if that's the case, then it's understandable because he was trying to end the battle, right. And he was probably, you know, if it was somebody from the other side, it was a way to end the battle and to kind of bring her to safety. Right? literally like, you know, once a camel had fallen, they immediately went to bring her to safety. So, yeah, it's one of those
Those I shouldn't get on her mentioned how she got through the trauma of the Battle of the candle.
I'm going to try and find you know, if there's any more things that she said about that. But from everything I found, you know, she just kept referring to it as a mistake, she would refer to that whole kind of her going out as a mistake. And she wished that she hadn't joined that, you know, that that group, and that she hadn't gone out in that way, okay.
And she would cry about it. And she would feel that she had not obeyed the instruction of Annie that was in the Quran for the wives of the Prophet SAW Salaam to stay in their homes and to be very attached to their homes, even though she'd done it with good intentions, you know, this is the characteristic of the believers that when they feel they've made a mistake, they are hard on themselves, right? So you can see that she's being quite hard on herself, because we know that she had the right intentions and that she was not trying to cause a battle, right? She was literally it was like more like a protest march. Right.
But because it all went out of hand. And because she remembered the prophet SAW, Selim had said something against,
you know, the situation where the dogs of Howard would be barking with one of the wives
there, and because of the eye of the Quran, telling the wives to stay close and adhere to their homes. You know, she she did regret it. she regretted it. And people knew that, you know, including on her deathbed, you know, she she said I don't want to hear people praising me because, you know, I made a mistake. And
so she was very hard on herself, you know, in that sense.
But one more thing I mentioned about that. Okay, I was kind of reflecting on it. That look,
when I should have been on her made a mistake, okay.
And that she felt that it was a mistake. And she wished that she hadn't gotten involved. Right.
Because of the way it ended up, right. And because of the amount of people that were killed the number of people that were killed. I was thinking one of the things that will probably would have really hurt her even more was, of course, the fact that her two brother in law, bright brothers in law were also killed, right?
Just imagine that she would have gone home to her sister, even if a smart and as a bear would divorce. Still as the bear was the Jani father of her nephews and nieces. Right. And, you know, he's a great Sahabi. But also just think about her other sister uncle thought, right? Her husband was killed.
So imagine going home to your sister, right? Oh, and what would you have to say? What could you say? Right? And how would you feel? So I'm just reflecting on a personal level that you know, it would have also been a very big thing for her and on a personal
level because it was literally key people from her family and her own, you know, beloved sister's husband, who was killed her sister was made a widow from this right.
But also, one of the things you notice is that, even though I should have done was hard on herself, and obviously that meant that she did a lot, she would have done a lot of stuff far she would have been perhaps this is why, you know, she gives so much soda. And she doubled down on her kind of Zoo hood, right and being hard on herself when it came to Kenya and giving a lot as much as she could in South Africa and doing as much as she could. I feel like one of the great things we can learn from our mother Ayesha, is that when you make a mistake, it doesn't mean that you then curl up and die, right? You don't curl up and fade away?
No, you adjust yourself, right? Identify what the mistake was identify what the cause of the mistake was, and make a decision about the future. Right? How are you? What are you going to learn from this situation that happened? So I should learn how she never got involved with matters of politics that were like to do with battles and to do with people's disputes and things like that? After this, right. So she, she learnt, she didn't want to get involved in those types of matters, because these types of matters can get so badly out of hand, right? But that doesn't mean that she didn't enjoy the good and forbid the evil with the leaders anymore. So she still had a political kind of
influence, but she modified it. So that it would be better it would be more suitable for the position that she had and for what the law would want her to do. And also she doubled down on doing good in other areas in teaching, right? conveying the Sunnah. So for the believer, you know, when when one door is closed, or when when we realized that one thing is not going to be good, we realize a mistake that we've made, it doesn't mean we shut down everything. No, we learn from that, and we focus ourselves in the area that we should focus on, we identify it and we double down and focus on those other good areas instead, the doors of hair are many right. So inshallah sisters my time is
up. So I will leave you
next time in sha Allah, we will carry on and we will look at the scholarship of Ayesha Diana. And then the last session we will look at and also her students etc. The last session will be after that and that will be the death of Ayesha or the on how the passing away of our mother and just a little look at you know her legacy etc. So if you do have any ideas and thoughts to share with us, especially in that last session, please do save them up so that we can share you know your reflections and that other people can benefit.
