Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah sisters Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. And welcome to this, I think it's the sixth session of our class about the life of a sharp eyed girl and her woman what, minion.
Last time we,
we talked about the age of a shadow girl, and when she got married, and some of the modern day kind of controversy surrounding that,
I hope you found that class useful. I know that sometimes, you know, some of us, we find that topic a little tedious.
But the reality of modern times is such that it is something that people bring up, it's something that islamophobes especially bring up, and also actually,
some of the younger generation, especially, you know, they've heard some of these arguments or they've, they have certain, I would say,
a certain misconception or
the whole topic has been misrepresented for them, to them. And so, sometimes, you know, they can jump to conclusions as well and feel, you know, the mind can be affected. And so, that's why I do think it is important for us
to be able to talk about the topic
and address, you know, people's, I would say fallacious logic regarding the topic and, and also their concerns
regarding what exactly the implications of
you know, the topic of the age of Asia are so, hummed along, glad we, you know, got through that. And I did post a link for the European Institute infographic regarding that on, I think it's under the lesson five YouTube video recording on my YouTube channel, so please go there. And you'll find the infographics really nicely This, I think, as
Nora D night she as well as chef Omar Suleiman, they, they put that together and it's a really nice, really good and comprehensive, I would say.
Okay, so today we're going to be looking at the hairdryer of Ayesha or the Lana.
As you know, I shut it down half it. So although Hanukkah was had taken place with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she did continue to live with her parents. And, as was the custom right, so that when she would be old enough and an appropriate age and an appropriate, you know, level of maturity, then she would
begin to live with her husband
on a lower lever seller. So,
a few little kind of stories that we hear from around that time.
It says in one of the happy thoughts once when all man anxious mother,
and she rebuked Ayesha delanda in front of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said
oh man, treat Ayesha nicely and preserve her rights please for my sake. So Allah wanting to sell them so you know already the there was this feeling in the family in the house that you know
is going to be the wife of the profits and loss a level she is the wife of the profits and loss alone. And you know, that is a very special status right? So the prophet SAW Selim there told her mom I'm gonna take care of her Don't be too tough on her and look after her well for my sake. Um, and it said that her mother became much more protective over you know, when after he got to the profits loss alone. And and you can just imagine that because like as a mother yourself, you know, what you must know from your own Mum, you know, whenever you're about to embark on an important milestone or your child is gonna get really worried you get really like, you want it to go really
well. And you start being very meticulous and very careful so on remand as well. She starts to be more protective of eyeshadow the last half now that she was the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and one of the books says that she used to encourage her to eat well, okay, Mashallah. So obviously she wants to make sure she's not malnourished and that she's she grows, you know, and develops.
And in this hadith in Sahih al Bukhari
We have this
narration that at that time allows messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was still in Makkah. And he said to his companions, your place of emigration has been shown to me, right, so your place of hegira has been shown to me.
I have seen salty land planted with date poems and situated between two mountains or volcanic tracks to hover as they're known in Arabic, so when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam declared it, some of the companions migrated to Medina, and some of those who had migrated to have a sharp return to Medina, when abubaker prepared for immigration laws, messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, and obviously this is a rocket as in issues farther down the line have made my father be sacrificed. Sorry, he said to him, wait, for I expect to be permitted to emigrate. So he told abubaker to wait, not to emigrate straightaway.
And I'm Booker said, me, my father be sacrificed for your sake, do you really expect to be given permission any
that the Prophet would be given permission to travel allows messenger apps a lot of money was sent and replied in the affirmative. So abubaker postponed his departure, in order to accompany ullas messengers on the law while he was alone, and fed two camels, which he had with the leaves of summer trees for four months.
So we see from this Hadeeth, right, that
the persecution in Makkah had gotten so bad, right. This is obviously after the year of sorrow, this is after pxrf. Right? The the tribes of Osan hozelock in Medina, okay. They had had talks with the prophets of Salaam during the Hajj season, they'd agreed with him that they would, they would welcome him. And they were tribes that have been fighting for a long time, right, there was a lot of infighting in Medina. And there were Jewish people who lived in Medina, and the Jews of Medina had told me
about this prophet who was going to come right sallallahu wasallam. And they used to actually threaten the Arabs, or the the pagans.
And they used to say to them, you know, when this prophet comes, we're going to fight you, and we're going to, you know, lead, right.
And so, the US and the husband urge the people of Medina or yesterday because it was known at that time, they were already familiar with the idea that there was a profit coming, right. And so when the profits loss on him came, and he showed all the signs of prophethood, that the Jews had always been telling them,
they were quick to accept Him, they saw him as a person who could bring peace to Medina, you know, the, the warring factions, he was also a son of Medina really, because, you know, the prophet SAW salones, from his mother's side was related
to the people of Medina, as well as from his father's side, right. So
in many ways, they felt that, you know, he was one of them. And so they had accepted him.
But all that was happening was people were waiting, like, when is the right time to go? The people went when the general permission was given people started emigrating, one of the people which is interesting for us to know, in the context of a show that began her and her family who came back from Russia around this time.
It seems he came back from Hampshire around this time is a Zubair have been a loved one
as well been on a one, okay.
He then married a smart, he married a smarter sister of Ayesha Milan has somewhere in between this time.
Sorry, somewhere in between, somewhere close to the edge of our time, right.
And who is as bourbon alone as a bourbon alum. He is the son of a one and a one is
a one was the brother of Khadija and Ilana right? So Khadija Dylan has brother,
his son was a Zubair vanilla one.
So basically for the ages his Auntie, sorry Khadija is his
Yeah, she's his Auntie right
And I won, then married. Sophia, Vint Abdulmutallab. Sophia of the muttalib is the Auntie of the prophets Allah Selim as in his,
his father's sister, right? He's put me in order, we would say, right. And so, in other words, so bear was the cousin of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And he was the nephew of Khadija. Right? So he's related from those two
directions. And so this is where and he was not, you know, one of the greatest of the Sahaba, one of the 10 promised paradise. He
is the one who he came back as one of the people who came back from Habash he had migrated to a bishop previously the senior and he came back and he married a smart I'll be alone huh?
It is said that he made his Raja habashi in the seventh or the ninth of July sorry, seventh or ninth. Before he didn't think it means and came back and married a smart just before the age of two money to Medina. And that's why you'll notice something that's about to come up. We'll we'll talk about that in Charlotte in a minute. Something special that happened during the job
related to a smart dilemma. Okay, so
how's everyone doing? Is everybody with me? Let me know in the chat.
If you're still with me.
I like to check in on you guys.
moderations about the hegira I shed a bit on her She.
She witnessed and she participated in, participated in the preparation for the hedgerow write the history of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam as well.
She even remembers the moment when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam came and told abubaker that it was time to make the hedgerow, right. I showed up there and underwrites that one day while we were sitting in a buckers house at noon.
At noon, somebody said to abubaker
this is a laws messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with his headcovering coming at a time at which he never used to visit us before. abubaker said May my parents be sacrificed for him. By Allah, he has not come at this hour except for a great necessity. So Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came and asked permission to enter and he was allowed to enter. When he entered, he said to abubaker tell everyone who is present with you to go away. And he he wanted privacy with abubaker abubaker replied, there are none but your family. May my father be sacrificed for you Oh, Allah's Messenger sallallahu wasallam
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I have been given permission to migrate. abubaker said Shall I accompany you?
And Allah His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said yes. In another narration, I should have the line her relates. She says that before I saw abubaker cry that day. I never thought that anyone could cry out of happiness. It's apparent. And so look at the friendship of aboubaker she saw the love that her own father had for the sort of loss and the loneliness and then her husband
not only was abubaker staying behind patiently, you know, in quite a dangerous time actually is quite a dangerous time because obviously the the the disbelievers in Makkah, they had cottoned on to the fact that the Muslims had started to migrate slowly. And they didn't want them to migrate. Because basically it was like a big insult to the people of Quraysh. Right, the leaders of Quraysh It was like wait a minute, you have got discord in your own family. You've got discord in your own clan and you haven't been able to maintain it to get to contain it sorry. You haven't been able to contain it, you haven't been able to manage it. And now you've mistreated your family members, your
Klansmen so much to such an extent that they are leaving you
is like a really big kind of a, you know, for for the Arabs of the time, right. And they knew that this would lower their status as the leaders of Croatia as the leading tribe of Arabia, they knew it would lower their status. And now there would be like, almost like a thorn in their side, which would be there in Medina, right. And they didn't want that at all. And so they were actively trying to stop people from migrating, so people were secretly migrating.
Except for her. He was one of those. Or some say he was the only one who really just, you know, made a big scene and told them I'm migrating and if you, anyone who wants to stop me, you know, come and meet me in next place. And, you know, and let him get ready for his mother to weep over him. Right. So apart from Omar, most people were migrating secretly. And a Booker had just stayed behind you. So he was so close to the prophets of Salaam. He wanted to go with the prophets of Allah when he was alone. And he not only did that, but he invested his own money, his own resources, preparing camels, right for this long journey, because they weren't going to take the usual route, right, they were
going to take
probably a longer and more complicated route in order to not be discovered. So I should have been on time remembers all of that. And she remember seeing her father cry out of happiness, at the fact that he was going to accompany us a little slower instead of she continues abubaker said,
Oh, Allah, His Messenger, made my father be sacrificed for you. Take one of these two sheep camels of mine allows messenger replied, I will accept it with payment. So we prepared the baggage quickly and put some
put some journey food in a leather bag for them. A Smith abubaker. His daughter cut a piece from her waist belt and tied the mouth of the leather bag with it. And for that reason, she was named verten. without pain. The owner of the two belts then allows messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and abubaker reached a cave on the mountain afford and stayed there for three nights. Okay? So she's telling us about the, you know, this is a little girl now, right? So she's like seven years old, six years old. I would say seven. And she's witnessing all this commotion, you know, you can just imagine, like, when you were a child, sometimes you had elder siblings, and there was always stuff
going on. And you don't fully like understand every aspect of it. But you're very keen observer. And this is what we see with eye shadow. delanda isn't it? She's the keen observer. She's the camera. Really, you know, she really is the camera woman, you know of the sudden now because
so many of the heavy, especially the ones that tell us all these wonderful stories and the little details on aerations of it. Sure, but the runner right from when she was younger. So she says we
she sees her own sister, her eldest sister, what an amazing role model, you know, prepare food. So she has a key role in the hedgerows, right? In this mission of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she sees her father boubakeur, sacrifice and invest and prepare for the sake of a lot. You know, he had taken all of his wealth with him. He literally took everything that he had with him.
Because he knew that his family would be taken care of in other ways. And
and look at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his integrity, you know, he wouldn't accept to take the camel except
by paying a walker for the camel. Right? So also, that also shows you something right shows you that people have integrity, they don't expect things for free. Right? As people are human, we shouldn't be people who expect expect freebies, if something comes to you, you know, as a gift, without you asking for it, then by all means, we should accept that. And you know, we can accept that. But we shouldn't be the sort sort of people who expect things to be for free and expect people to spend on us and do things for us. You know.
So she goes on.
She says, a blog been a debugger. And so she's talking now about her brother, right? Her half brother
Basically who is a smart aleck on hers full brother. She says Abdullah bin Abu Bakar, who was intelligent, and sagacious Youth used to say used to stay with them every night, he used to leave them before daybreak, so that in the morning, he would be with koresh as if he had spent the night in Makkah, he would keep in mind any plots made against them. And when it became dark, he would go and inform them of it. Right. So he basically had the role of informant, right, he had to go. So again, she's seeing her brother have a very key role in this mission. And, you know, it must have been quite daunting, must have been a little bit scary, you know, just witnessing all of this. But
at the same time, kind of like an adventure, I guess, you know, just trying to imagine what it must have been like in the mind of Asia. I belong here, right? And so a blah, he goes, he so he's going there, every day to the cave, he takes food, he takes provision. And then he comes back. And he acts as though nothing's happened, you know, that he's been there all all night. So he comes back very early. And throughout the day, he's listening. And he's trying to see if you know, what, what news he could convey to the prophets on our Salaam, and about the plots and plans that the corporation we're now making, because they were making lots of plots and plans. Of course, their main plot which
had been to kill the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his bed, had failed, right?
They had plotted to kill the prophets also love in his bed, you know, a different person from each clan, together, every clan except for one or Hashem together, and to with their daggers. And as soon as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would have come out of his bed, they would have
attacked him. And that way, they would have spread all the guilt to such an extent that they felt you know, that they couldn't really be pursued, and they would just pay blood money. And then that would be the end of the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But as we know, I leaned on Ilan, who he, you know, slept in the bed of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, and the Prophet had already left. And he had left with abubaker. So all of that had happened. And so now, we're really angry, right? They're really upset. They're thinking, you know, how could we have let him escape, and then are sending all of their best spies and guides and experts expert's to go and scan
the desert, right, looking for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and aboubaker
upon the life. So she says,
I've been for Hara, the freed slave of aboubaker, used to bring the sheep of his master of Bucher to them a little while after nightfall, in order to rest the sheep there. Okay, so this sheep who that was a milk giving sheep, he would,
he would take the sheep there and leave it there at night so that they could take milk from the sheep.
So they always had fresh milk at night, the milk of their of their sheet and the milk which they want by throwing heated stones in it.
Another beautiful hater would then call the herd
I would have been fired up the would then call the herd away when it was still dark. before daybreak. He did the same in each of those three nights. Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and abubaker had hired a man from the tribe of bunny. Dale from the family of Bunny, I've been at the as an expert guide. And he was in alliance with the family of Alaskan wild Sami. And he was on the religion of the pagans of Qureshi and he the machine of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and abubaker trusted him and gave him the two sheep camels and took his promise to bring the two sheep camels to the cave of the mount of Thor in the morning after three nights had passed. And
when they set out, I'm open for hay right and the guide went along with them, and the guide led them along
the seashore. So Pamela, they were taking the help from non Muslims who they trusted
And this shows you that it's okay to collaborate, to cooperate, to work with non Muslims for a good cause, right? Especially when it comes to those who we trust.
So support Allah she's she's in this generation describing, you know, all the different people all the different elements that it took to
fulfill this mission and how the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and Bucher actually took a very strange route to Medina along the seashore. Okay, just so that they would not be tracked.
abubaker took 5000 Durham's with him.
It is said that when he accepted Islam, he had 40,000 Durham's.
At the time of his era, he had 5000 he had spent all of his money, freeing slaves in his house says, you know, the famous historian, he says that he had spent all his money all this time, you know, ever since he became a Muslim, he spent his money for the sake of Allah, freeing as many slaves as he could inviting people to Islam. And so now he had only 5000 left. And he took all of that with him. Arusha remained behind with the family of aboubaker and the prophets household.
Okay, her father abubaker, had taken all of his wealth.
Her grandfather, I will call alpha, who was blind. And this time he was not a Muslim, right? He began mocking them. When he heard that of workers left, he began mocking them and commented that abubaker had left them bereft of himself and his wealth. And he has taken himself and he's, well, he's left you with nothing.
As smart, who was a teenager at that time, so she was about 10 years older than
She took some stones, and she wrapped them in a cloth. And she allowed her grandfather to touch the cloth. And she said, this is what he left us with.
She was trying to reassure her grandfather, right, without lying. And her grandfather felt the cloth with the stones, and said, Oh, then he has left you with a lot.
But in fact, he hadn't left them anything, you know, because he felt that this journey was so dangerous, that he would need everything and he was willing to put his own family in some level of sacrifice and danger. For the sake of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it shows you the love that abubaker had for the prophets of Allah when it's under the law could he had he knew his family would be okay. You know?
A Buddha came and not came knocking on their door. He came knocking on the door of a Booker.
And when a smart told him, she didn't know where he was, Abuja hadn't slept, slapped her in her face, causing her earring to fall off. So Pamela
Okay, look at the things that these great women were suffering and experiencing for the sake of Allah. Write
a shameless man who would slap girl like that.
So what about the topic of hegira? I just want to spend a moment talking about hegira.
Okay, because this was the job of the prophets, Allah when it was sent in, but what about us? What about in our times? You know, have any of you sisters listening? Have you? Are you and Are any of you people who used to live or were both born in
non Muslim majority countries and moved to Muslim majority countries?
Please share with us.
I know that there are many many
says I'd love to find the perfect Muslim country. I don't think the perfect anywhere exists on this earth.
You know, that's gender, right.
But I'd be interested to know if any of you are people who've migrated because I know there are a lot.
So the topic of hijra,
at certain times, the scholars have said that at certain times digital becomes obligatory upon all Muslims right upon Muslims. And of ligature it becomes obligatory when,
say you were born in a non Muslim land or you converted to Islam. And you're in a non Muslim majority or non Muslim, I would say a country that has non Muslim leaders, right. And government governance, which is why things are a bit complicated nowadays.
When you're in a non Muslim land, and you cannot practice your religion, right,
you can't do your obligations, you're not allowed to pray, for example, or you're not allowed to,
too fast, you're not allowed to do the obligations of a son.
Or you're forced to do her own things, for example, eating, you're forced to eat pork, or you're forced to do her arm things, right? That means you can't practice your religion, right? The fundamental aspects of religion, you can't practice them.
Then if you are capable, then you must make hegira.
Right. And that's the caveat if you are capable. So if you have the ability, if you have the intelligence, if you have the means, you know, you you do what you can to leave that place and travel to a place where you can practice your deen.
At other times, it can be Mr. Howe, meaning that it's preferred. Right. And the scholars said that is when you are living in a non Muslim land.
And you can practice your deen. Okay.
But still, they considered it to be preferable for Muslims to be in a Muslim
Muslim majority land or, of course, when these scholars were writing these books, there was a philosopher right? There was a Muslim rule in the Muslim lands. So they were expecting
Jani there to be Muslim governance, they were expecting there to be people who would welcome the Muslims right, they would be able to have citizenship for example of those places.
But still, I'm going to convey the opinions. You know, they said it's most the hub when you are in a non Muslim land, even if you can practice your deen is still preferable to live in a Muslim land. Why? Because it's seen as more conducive for your Eman, right, you're surrounded by Islam is the norm. Right? It's practiced everywhere, also, your children will be brought up with Islam as the norm. And really, I don't think I need to really spell it out. But you know, there's so many things that a person can become desensitized to when they are living in a non Muslim majority country, right?
That actually, you know, you don't even realize that you've become desensitized to those things until you leave. And then you come back, and you feel quite shocked, Oh, God, you know, got really used to those things. And I,
I didn't realize that I'd gotten used to them. Right. And obviously, it in the past, you know, it was easier to seek knowledge. And even now it's easier to seek knowledge in Muslim countries. And there are lots of benefits. If you, you know, if there's a problem, the courts are more likely to do things in an Islamic way, etc, etc, etc.
Okay, but if a person is unable, you know, or if they're in a state of oppression, or they have some legitimate reason, okay, that they can't make a drop in the scholarship, but that's okay.
at the same time, if a person is able to practice, they're then able to seek knowledge able to give that one right to actually invite people to Islam.
In non Muslim and in a non Muslim country, then that is also almost the hub, right? That's also something that's recommended. Now, in our times, things are a bit complicated, right, as you can imagine, right?
We have oppressive leaders, in many Muslim countries, we have
legal systems that are not fully Islamic, right? There are elements of French civil codes and English law and all sorts of different systems in place, with the Sharia having some part to play in those systems.
There's a lack of
of religious freedom sometimes in Muslim countries, right?
So, things are much more complicated, right?
as a, as a person who lives in the West, for example, born in the West, you can't up and leave and move to a Muslim country and become a citizen that easily, right? A lot of the countries that make it very difficult to be a citizen anyway.
And there could be certain benefits from being a citizen of the West, if you use that position and privilege in for the sake of Allah, you know, if you can use that for the sake of Allah.
I mean, I witnessed that myself just going to Jerusalem few years ago,
you know, a number of us traveled to Jerusalem, some of my friends, especially those who are from certain countries, they were turned away at the border. But those of us who were British and American, even though we were dressed religiously, by virtue of the fact that we were British, and American, we were, we were allowed in. And, you know, we've got to pray martial arts, etc. And so, you know, I'm not saying that that's the only reason why you would, you know, be a citizen of a country. But literally, we're living in that complicated time, where it's not really as simple as that Islam and our cover, you know, it's really not as simple as that anymore.
you know, we each have to make a decision for our own families, we have to make a decision for our own families, for our own situations, if we feel that, you know, the harm is greater for us in living in a western country, and I have friends who feel that, you know, they feel that the mind is low, they don't feel that,
that they can be the they can't, the output is not best, basically, in the West. So they go and travel and they live in Muslim majority country. And they're happy that
On the flip side, we also see that many of us who live in the West, you know, we grew up valuing Islam, a lot more than sometimes people in Muslim majority countries do, right? Perhaps because of the conflict because of the fact that we're different because of the fact that we had to question we had to research we have to find out, you know, what, what exactly is Islam? What exactly who exactly am I?
And because we're not enamored by the West, you know, although there are many people who are enamored by the West, those of us who grew up in the West, I think we've seen, you know, what it's really like, we've seen the problems, the social ills,
the huge problems that come from people being bereft of their connection with Allah subhana wa. taala. Right.
And because of that, I think that attracted us more to Islam, that made us more attract attached to Islam and value Islam. Right. And that's why, you know, when we went to Egypt, I remember people were like, this was in the 90s, late 90s. And people would be like, Muslims are the Muslims in Britain, about Muslims in London. And they would say to us, you know, you have a job in London, and they really wouldn't believe it, you know, because so many of the people in the eastern world
are doing whatever they can to copy the West, right?
I really like letting go of their culture, letting go of their traditions, letting go of their, you know, their morals, even right, in order to pander after the West, and what they see as, as a superior, or advanced or modern
people and way of living, right.
So when they see us from the west, actually holding on to our Deen is quite strange and impressive, actually, it reminds them reminds them of the value of what they have.
And, you know, it reminds me of the poet's efootball cabal allama Iqbal he used to say, the Pakistani or actually Indian,
but, you know, one of the key people who
was involved in
Pakistan, and its vision etc. Um, one of the things he always used to say, and he, you know, obviously traveled to the west He was educated in Britain, right. And other places in Europe, so
used to say again and again to Muslims, you know, this West that you're sort impressed by, you know, it is very shiny on the outside, inside, it has nothing, it's empty, it's empty.
And so Pamela was in a class. And one of our professors were saying was going was we're talking about how development what develops a country and, you know, the dude. And he was talking about the West being developed and developed and developed, and, and it's kind of got on my nerves a little bit, you know?
And I put my hand up, and I said,
Well, it depends on what you mean by developed, you know, if you mean materially, yeah, the West is more materially developed, in many ways. But if you're talking spiritually, then
it's not, you know, the east is more developed.
So, it really matters, like the way what you value, right? what you value.
Anyway, that was a little tangent of mine.
But yeah, in our times, it's complicated. You know, that if you're in the West, you should be doing what you can to hold on to your deen
to practice your DNA, to do our, to invite this these people all around us who don't know about Islam, invite them to Islam, talk to them about Islam be an example. But also actually actively do though, to them, right.
And for each of us, you know, we have our own situations, we have to seek advice right? about that. If it's something that
troubles us, I know that one of my teachers, Chef, Akram nadwi. He, you know, he told us in class that he considers the whole world in the present time to be thought of that way.
He says those traditional demarcations of Darren Cooper and Islamic kind of,
kind of not there anymore, or they're, they're much more watered down and much more complicated, right. And so really, the whole world at present is, is a place that we need to be making that our right, whether it's in the east or the west, you know, having lived in Egypt, and in other countries, having experienced what it's like there.
You know, there were things that would depress you more there than in the West, right? Sometimes, even though people had the heart that was pure, you know, you'd often meet people with great morals and great attachment to the dean. But because of all the kind of secularization that's gone on all the years of, you know, the the colonization, the wars, the
the despotic leaders, and how much wealth has been stolen from those lands, and their people.
So panela, you know,
all of the Muslim countries that present they're all in need of us to be role models, and for us to do that with as well right. So wherever we are in the east or west, we should all be involved in Dawa and be people who are involved in in joining the good forbidding the evil but first and foremost being an example ourselves, right? Of what that is what it is to be a Muslim.
So what about the huge innovation of the law? When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Abu Bakar arrived in Medina
A few months later, it said about three months later.
They sent for their families, right? So they sent for their families.
So their families were really the last batch of people to make hegira because even the profits and loss of cinnamon abubaker we're making it your very late right people had already gone.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent they they've been heard refer right remember his?
We will talk about that in a moment and abordar fear to bring the two families to Medina, the two families being
we will mention them in a minute.
They've been had a fan of lawfare they brought two camels and 500 Durham's with them abubaker sent two to three camels and Abdullah bin what I did. Earl Lacey is better than guide and a letter to his son Abdullah, commanding him to bring
The family to Medina they bought three more camels with the dead hands and on their way into Mecca they bumped into. They'll have been obey the law. They'll have been by law is we said Remember what we said about him? He's also one of the Great's great Sahaba one of the 10 promised paradise. He asked to join them
okay, let's talk about some of these people.
First of all, who accompany that on the journey, Abdullah bin or a bit he said he collected overlockers family on Roman a smart and I shot and Abdullah right. So
brother and sister and in Roman Zaid and abroad fair collected the prophets household sallallahu Sallam who were Fatima on Confirm. So the winter summer so he was married to so there now. Well sama bin Zayed and his mother Baraka, amen. Okay. And you know, but okay is obviously the Prophet sallallahu when he was so learns
she is the profit source on suckling mother, right, one of the suckling mothers of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
And they traveled together with Bella.
On the way issues camel, got nervous and started running wildly. A mother So basically, I should have known that she didn't know how to control a camel, right? She was only a little girl. And suddenly the camel started basically shooting off. And the mother got really worried and she started shouting while I've been there. Well, I would also Oh daughter, oh bride. She used to call her bride.
Right. And she called out to Arusha telling her to let go of the camels reins. And they got caught on something lying on the ground. So the camel stopped.
members of the group came and took control of the capital. Okay.
So who is a been the he was the adopted son of the profits and loss on them right.
Used to be a slave and the prophets of Salaam adopted him and then, you know, later he returned him he had his own name, but
he remained very close to the profits and loss alone. Of what I fear is the Coptic freed slave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was gifted to the Prophet by his uncle abass. And the Prophet freed him when he heard the good news that abass had embraced Islam. His son was obey the law in raffia, who narrated her deeds from his father. He fought in many battles and was in the army in the army of Ali later on.
yeah, there's famous Hadith in the Muslim that we must admit
that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told abou raffia that the Mohali of a tribe or from them and told him his tribe are not allowed to receive sadaqa. Okay, so the Mohali, they are the, you know, when when you have a slave, and you free that slave, then and then he becomes then basically you have a type of relationship, that kinship with that, with that slave, right, that former slave and they become that you're morally right. And so he said to a Baraka that, because he was from a freed slave from one who Hashem and Banu Hashim are not allowed to receive, you know, charity. He told him that he can't receive charity either because he's from the morality of Hashem. And a prophet died in the
time of Allah Delano. Abdullah bin or if it was the prophets guide on his hedger
and he was later sent to bring the rest of the family using an unfamiliar route to Medina. Okay, and we said about Doha, right? They'll hose you know, they wanted to call her and tell her join them on the way.
That was one of the 10 promised paradise. You mentioned that he was from bunny team. So he was a Klansman of abubaker and later he married his younger sister. Remember we mentioned the system wasn't born yet on conformance abubaker.
And also he took part in the Battle of the camel which is coming later and you know,
we will come to that in Sharla. And
a very interesting
of the lapins bears birth. Okay.
I'm going to mention this and then we will inshallah
go to questions. So remember we said that the bear got married to a smart just before they aged out right?
Well, during the heater, a SmartThings bunker was pregnant. She was expecting a baby.
it says it was in the last days of pregnancy during the journey. Okay. They stopped at Oba where a snap gave birth to the great Sahabi Abdullah bin Zubaydah, right. And this was a great omen for the Muslims, they held the baby up and chanted praise of Allah, he was taken to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam who did the meek. Okay, so the story behind this is that
when the Muslims made hegira, to Medina,
there was a kind of rumor going around, right? That magic had been put on the Muslims, and that they would not be able to give birth to children anymore.
So a week had passed, and another week had passed, and three weeks had passed. And there had been no births to any of the Muslims, right? So some of the Muslims and a number. These are people who had recently come to Islam, a lot of them have recently come to Islam. So these things like you know,
say her and these things are very kind of
prominent in that culture and very kind of, you know, you really look for, you really get afraid of magic and stuff like that, right.
So most things began to become afraid that the sorcery that had been placed upon them was true.
Until a snap, we had made the hegira from Makkah to Medina, while she was pregnant, gave birth to a child at Oba. So abubaker then took this child around to the Muslims, showing him to the Muslims, so the Muslims started crying, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar,
proving that this, you know, this rumor had been false. Okay, and they say that then a beloved in a zoo Bay was taken to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he puts him in his lap. And
then he did the honey, you asked for a date, soften the date. And then he put it, he softened the date with it in his own mouth. And he put it into the mouth of, of the liveliness of air,
which is a great blessing for him.
And so the first thing that entered into the mouth of the child was a date, and the saliva, the blessing saliva of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And then, you know, we know that I shadowed the owner, she actually she loved this baby so much. She asked for him to be able to she asked her sister if she could bring him up. So often a delay because a bear would be at the house of a shadow.
And this is also why she was known as one of the law, mother of the law.
Okay, um, that a lot. I think we've come to the end of that session. Next time we'll see what happened when they arrived in Medina. We know that when they arrived in Medina, the masjid
I believe the masjid was being built, or it was already built.
The mustard was being built, they arrived in Medina, right.
If there are any questions, then please let me know.
I'll have a look.
Shall law so we're talking about the hegira? Yeah, so kinda low. One of the sisters reminds us you know, like our poor brothers and sisters in China. Yeah. So you know, the Uighur Muslims, you know, those who are being oppressed.
First of all, you know, if a Muslim is being oppressed to that extent, and they and they can get out, then that becomes an obligation on them. Right. But so Pamela, look at the situation they're in, you know, in camps and under such a brutal kind of situation, but
you know, they they may
won't be able to do that, you know. And so, in that case, then, you know, they excused from that. So Pamela will make it easy for them to remove the oppression that they're experiencing.
Sister says that she made she migrated to the UK from the USA
in order to be able to practice better,
my intention was purely for Islam. I don't know if that counts as hegira but it was my personal
Huh, that's interesting. I wonder what you saw in the UK. That was better for your Islam.
Just the accent, I think
we've got a better accent properly English.
Okay, sister says I made Hitler three times to Algeria, from the UK. Now I live in Algeria since 2017. And hamdulillah. It's the best I could have done for my children. Mashallah, that's nice. I stopped, I started to see the benefits already at hamdulillah.
And sisters making the point that sometimes Muslim countries normies culture, and some of the culture goes against our religion. Yeah. And then sometimes people get confused, right? They can't tell the difference. I once read that when you go to a non Muslim country, you find Islam but no Muslims. But when you go to a Muslim country, there are Muslims and no Islam. Yeah, I've heard those kind of,
you know, people say stuff like that. And well, I would say so Pinilla, you know,
I think you know, like I said, it's so complicated. The times we're living in are so complicated, like, literally, when you read the books of the scholars, you realize that they were not really imagining a time
when there would be no, like central Islamic governance, you know,
they weren't really imagining that that the fifth for that time, right. And that's why there's like a whole branch of fifth now developing call, for call a call yet, right? The fact of the minorities, people who are living as minorities in non Muslim lands, it's a developing type of fit.
But yeah, we live in complicated times. Things are not black and white. Things are not simple as Darren Cooper and Islam anymore.
I find it harder to practice the way I do when I'm in Morocco than when I'm in the UK.
Yeah, again, things are not as black and white.
How can we get the recording of these lectures? Yes, on, it's going to be on YouTube in sha Allah, after this session. So in short, I think we've pretty much answered the questions and yeah, you know, sisters, I think the main message apart, regarding the hitter aspect is, you know, wherever we are, we can be Muslims. wherever we are, we can be Muslims, we can make our homes Islamic, we can make our circle of friends, the best that we could make them, you know, we can be engaged in our, one of the things that, you know,
some of the days, you know, that I've had the
privilege to kind of work with, one of the things that they would say to us is, you know, if you're not doing power, then Tao is being done to you.
And that's really a powerful statement, you know, because when we're involved in Tao, and we're involved in inviting others to the deen when we think of our role as the role of the prophets in their societies, because remember the profits lesson and was in Makkah for many, many years, right, living amongst
non Muslims who were persecuting him.
And he was still able to be the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was still with the best people, the best to harbor, right? We're from that time. So pilot, so you know, wherever we are, whatever situation we're in, remember, two things. Number one, this life is not forever, you know, this life is not going to be forever. the good and the bad of it. The hardship and the ease of it is not forever. And this is not the real life. It's not the only life. Right? The real life is the life hereafter. And this is just our chance to do our best to reach the best level we can there. And the second thing is, there's no perfection on this earth. There's no gender on this earth. If you're
looking for the ideal place, the ideal land that ideal Muslim society that I
you know, utopia, it doesn't exist. And it was never intended to exist on this earth, you know, probably the best time was the time
of the whole affair. rashidun. Right. The profits are sometimes time and then the time of the regime.
After that, when you look into Islamic history, you know,
things were not utopian at all. Of course, there were better times, there were worse times. But things were not utopian. And sometimes we have this image or this idea of this, you know, like, we had this utopian system that was in place for hundreds of years. And, you know, although, of course, we would consider it to be a better system, right.
There was nothing perfect about it, especially after the time of Russia. So
I would say, you know, let us stop seeking utopia on this earth, stop seeking gender on this earth because when we do that, we'll be bitterly disappointed, bitterly disappointed. And instead, start thinking, What does Allah want of me? You know, what is the next thing I should be doing? What's the next right move? What's the correct way that I should be responding to whatever circumstance and situation Allah has put me in? What is my duty, right? And then to fulfill that to the best of our ability? So inshallah sisters with that, I will leave you
Jazakallah Heron and I'll see you next Sunday.
