Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah dear sisters Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

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

And welcome to this the seventh session of the Arusha radula class where we're looking at the life of Arusha, the mother of the believers.

00:00:22--> 00:00:28

We're going to be looking at something very interesting in sha Allah. We're going to be looking at the

00:00:30--> 00:01:14

shadow the Lionheart arriving in Medina, what house a new home would be like, what the new situation was like, etc. Last time we looked at the hedger of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we looked at Arusha, a smurf and Abdullah in particular and their role, so I should siblings as smart as Abdullah, and their role in the hegira of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and of course her father abubaker cidade. He was the one who accompanied the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam on his his job. And then we talked about how he had a deal on her and her family, her mother and her sister.

00:01:16--> 00:01:37

And the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they were actually probably the last people to make the job because, you know, they were waiting till the right moment. And the prophets Allah Salaam, sent another worker sent people to come and pick them up. And then we mentioned how the Muslims celebrate it.

00:01:38--> 00:01:57

When a smart Vince abubaker, who by now was married to a Zubair been a loved one, and was expecting what was writing at the end of her pregnancies. How the Muslims were very happy and they cheered in Oba and in Medina when

00:01:59--> 00:02:26

smart bins abubaker gave birth to Abdullah ibn Zubair, right, the Lionel Zubair who was born in the pullback, or who was born in a right at the end of the drought at that stage. And the reason why the Muslims cheered. Can anyone mentioned the reason why the Muslims were so happy? You can just type it into the chat.

00:02:29--> 00:02:35

Does anybody remember why the Muslims were so happy at the birth of the LA zoo?

00:02:47--> 00:03:34

Ah, sister, Santa says because that it showed that there was no curse? Yes, sister, Myrna Hill says because they thought there was a curse that no child would be born but her child was born. Yeah, I mean, it was that people had spread rumors, right that they was that the Muslims are cursed. The Muslims are doomed, you know, they're no child will be born to them. And you know, the, that society they just come out of this very kind of superstitious religion, right, which is, you know, the idolatry and paganism And so, when somebody said things like that, it kind of affected them right it would it they would suddenly start getting worried. And especially because actually no child was was

00:03:34--> 00:03:51

born for some time, right. And then the live in a Zubair was born and then you know, there was relief. People were relieved. And they were chanting the duck beers and the prophets, Allah Sonam. He welcomes the baby, he did the technique, right?

00:03:53--> 00:03:59

He softened the date in his mouth, and he rubbed it on the palate of Bella even as well.

00:04:01--> 00:04:08

Okay, does aka Mullah Heron. Now today, I'm going to share my screen now. I'm going to show you something.

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

Before I do that, let me mention that, of course now. I should learn how she'd arrived in Medina. And you know, what happened as soon as they arrived in Medina was that actually a number of the Sahaba especially those who had made the Indra they became ill right. And she told us about this okay in a Hadith, so

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

and so he had Buhari I shall rely on her narrates that at the time when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam arrived in Medina. It was that part of Allah earth which was most afflicted by fever, and impure water flowed in its Valley and so

00:05:00--> 00:05:50

His companions and she means by this those who migrated right? from Mecca became afflicted in El Medina with hardship and disease. Yet Allah protected His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from all of that abubaker Allah and Mohammed bin for Hara, and below, all of whom were staying in the same house, became afflicted with fever. I asked the messenger salallahu alayhi wa sallam for permission to visit them. And he granted me permission, I entered upon them to visit them. And this was before he job was made obligatory upon us. And I found them to be afflicted with a fever, whose degree of severity no one knows about except a lot.

00:05:51--> 00:06:43

And then it goes on to say I show related that she then asked each of the three sick men how they were doing, and each of them gave an answer in which he expressed the pain he was feeling after she left them Are you sure are the Lionheart informed the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about their condition. He said, Oh Allah, make Medina beloved to us, just as you have made mcap beloved to us, or even more so. And transfer its fever to Java, the name of a place that is situated between Mecca and Medina. Oh Allah bless us with its mod and PSA. And you know, the mod on the side of the measuring cups or the measuring size. The thing that the measurements that they used to

00:06:43--> 00:06:48

measure out wheat and you know different things in in that time,

00:06:49--> 00:06:56

and they use them for buying and selling. So he said, bless us, bless this mood and the PSA.

00:07:00--> 00:07:24

And then suppiler like, you know, people's health became better and you can see heaven in this headache, even though it's soon after the hairdryer, it seems that I showed the line her is asking the prophet SAW Selim permission. So this show is that very soon after the hegira that she actually moved in with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Right? And regarding that

00:07:29--> 00:07:41

I shot a deal on her tells us, you know, and the story of how you know she basically began to live with the prophets of Allah when he was Salah, consummated her marriage. She says that

00:07:43--> 00:07:59

you know the books relate that the ladies have the answer. They came to a buckers house right? On Roman bathed and dressed Ayesha, right. So in other words, prepared her as a bride right? She was preparing as a bride

00:08:00--> 00:08:13

and then brought her before the ladies who said you know this they they began to say nice things to her. They said you know you're coming his blessings and is auspicious

00:08:14--> 00:09:00

after which they adorned the bride. Shortly after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came, there was nothing to offer him except a bowl of milk. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took a sip and passed on the bowl to Alisha, who was too shy to drink it. The ladies advised her not to refuse the gift of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Accordingly, she took a sip and put down the bowl. The Prophet asked her to pass it on to her friends, but they said they did not feel thirsty. And at this the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you know you shouldn't join you shouldn't join between lying and hunger, right?

00:09:02--> 00:09:05

Do not utter falsehood for every lie is recorded, he said.

00:09:10--> 00:09:21

And this was in show Well, okay. And some of the scholars say that there was there were apart from you know, some of the things we've already mentioned some of the reasons why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got married.

00:09:23--> 00:09:23

You know,

00:09:24--> 00:09:45

one of the benefits was also that the Arabs considered the month of show well show well as to be like an unlucky time or not a good time for you know, the the consummation of marriage, right? And so, you know, the prophets of Salaam went against this, which is to kind of break that superstition.

00:09:47--> 00:09:52

Also, the fact that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was marrying

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

our Isha. You know, one of the traditions at that time was apparently that if you considered somebody

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

To be your brother, if you consider them to be very, very close, you would not marry their, you know, daughter, right?

00:10:08--> 00:10:33

And so, again, Islam came to say no, even though boubakeur is the brother of the prophets, Allah saw them in Islam. He's not his real blood brother, right? And so it's helpful for somebody to marry for the profits are low, what if someone were to marry his daughter, right? And from that we can also learn, you know, in our cultures in, especially those of us who are from,

00:10:34--> 00:10:50

you know, the Indian subcontinent, sometimes there's this idea that if you have cousins, if you have people who are very close to you, you know, it's like, not possible to marry their children or, you know, the children would never get married, or they're like brothers and sisters.

00:10:51--> 00:11:25

In reality, you know, it's not the same. Right? If they're not blood relatives of yours. Yeah. And if they're not your actual brothers and sisters, then even cousins when they are old enough, they become our nonveterans. Right? And so the Hey, job, and the other things should be observed in front of them just because, you know, we grew up together, we think they are like our cousin, they're so close to us. They're like our brothers. It doesn't mean that they actually are are our brothers. Right?

00:11:26--> 00:11:48

So I just wanted to show you something actually, that I've got. It's interesting, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam made that up, about you know, may Allah bless the mod of Medina, right? I've actually got this something that I got from Medina, from one of the scholars there. I believe my father got this from Jeff Xiao Rahman, Allah me,

00:11:50--> 00:12:16

who basically has a similar model like this, and he has a son ad for it, which is like a chain that goes all the way back to the time of the Prophet sallallahu. himself. And so what the it's like a Silsila, right. It's like a chain of actions that that takes place. And it's like this. So, the sheriff, he poured his mod from Medina, right?

00:12:17--> 00:13:01

He poured water or something into this, to show that this is an accurate measurement of one mod. Right. And he, his mod that he has he somebody had done the same with him, right? And then going all the way back to the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So Mashallah, that's quite an interesting thing, that this was basically the size of one mod in Medina, right. And Assad is like four of these, about four of these. And this is what they use to like, measure out the soccer measure out, especially. So he's a cattle fitter and stuff like that, right. And also for buying and selling.

00:13:02--> 00:13:08

So that's something interesting, I wanted to show you. And now I wanted to show you how

00:13:09--> 00:13:21

the setup for a shout out Dylan has home was right. What was the setup for I showed her the light on hers. Oh, okay, so I'm going to share my screen. I hope this works.

00:13:27--> 00:13:33

So, I wanted to show you this. And this is something really cool in Sharla

00:13:35--> 00:13:45

just some stuff that I've been looking at myself. And so just one second, give me one second, just just this, okay.

00:13:46--> 00:13:50

Okay, so this is something I prepared to show you.

00:13:51--> 00:14:23

So you can see, this is like, I would say a drawing a reconstruction a diagram of the way I showed the house was set up. And this is obviously based on ahaadeeth and research that people have done over the years. So this square big square in the middle here, obviously this is basically this is obviously the the mustard, right? Oh my god, a pen is terrible. Let me just let me just fix that.

00:14:28--> 00:14:41

Okay, I think it's better if I use a laser. So this is the chip, right? of the profits on a la salon, which was built very soon. Well, it was it was being built when I arrived.

00:14:42--> 00:14:44

And you can see here,

00:14:45--> 00:14:46

this is the

00:14:47--> 00:14:49

direction in which they would pray. Right.

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

And so this part was covered. This part was open, and this part was partially covered as well. Okay.

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

And here we have two houses, right? And these were they were more like rooms to be honest. They were called houses or you know, of the prophets or Salaam and his

00:15:13--> 00:15:17

two wives at the time who are Isha and soda.

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

Okay, let me show you the next slide.

00:15:22--> 00:16:10

So these are from people's research papers, you know, and books that I found. Okay, this is really cool. Isn't this cool? Mashallah. So Pamela, this was from when I went to Medina, a couple of years ago, and I went to the exhibition that's there, you know, there's a beautiful exhibition in Medina now near the masjid, about the history of Medina. And this was a model and I took this photo of this model of, you know, reconstruction of the masjid of the prophets en la jolla, salaam, this square, right simple square, as it would have been, you know, at the time of the hedgerow or just after major right at the beginning. And you see these cute little houses here.

00:16:11--> 00:16:58

So this would have been the house of Arusha Babylon Hmm. Because here there was like a door or an access somewhere here. Right into the masjid. The Prophet says on him could just enter the masjid easily. Right? And this is the house of soda. Right? So his two wives at the time. And you can see part of the message was covered. Isn't it amazing? So panela Look how small the mustard was right? Like so basic and so simple. And it kind of shows you that a must you this is a place of worship is a place to worship Allah. It doesn't have to have a dome. It doesn't have to have a minaret. It doesn't have to be ornate, although we like to do those things. Actually, look what it is. It's

00:16:58--> 00:17:23

basically a building, right? A building where people gather to worship Allah, and look at the simplicity of the little houses of the Prophet sallallahu, wasallam and Arusha. Right. Okay, let's go to the next, I want to show you some more. So this is more like a close up of that little model. And this one was labeled the house of Ayesha

00:17:24--> 00:17:51

and this one was labeled. So you know, these are basically reconstructions, nobody can say that it was definitely like this or exactly like this, right? Which is why you'll see there are different interpretations. But there seems to have been like an open space, and then a covered space, right? And then here, the, the the reconstruction shows, like a little access, and then the prophet SAW Selim could go into the machine easily like that, right.

00:17:54--> 00:17:54


00:17:57--> 00:18:01

And this is another like an artist's impression, I guess of,

00:18:03--> 00:18:04

you know, the whole

00:18:05--> 00:18:07

the question again,

00:18:08--> 00:18:15

and then the two houses here, I can see slightly different but similar, right.

00:18:27--> 00:18:45

And this is from a research paper that I found. And, you know, it's got a little bit more detail there. So this is a model of the mosque diagram of the mosque says Qibla wall, it says, the prophets rooms, or house houses.

00:18:47--> 00:18:48

Various entrances.

00:18:52--> 00:19:04

Yeah. And then here, this is when it was actually enlarged A few years after the hegira it was enlarged, the machine was enlarged. And

00:19:07--> 00:19:20

it seems that in this model, the you know, the researcher believes that the houses were all moved here, right. So the houses were moved. And then there were more houses added, sorry, the more houses added.

00:19:21--> 00:19:26

I believe that the reason why the people are is different is because

00:19:31--> 00:19:33

I need to look that up actually.

00:19:35--> 00:19:36

So I'll get back to you on that one.

00:19:38--> 00:19:40

Insha Allah

00:19:42--> 00:19:42


00:19:49--> 00:19:51

Do you just trying to change the slide?

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

Yeah, so here's another model and it says this is from

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

About this is about the seventh year of HR. So by then you can see, look, let me see if I can do. I can read them close up here it says, Who would you rather Arusha? Right. So these were known as the odorata. Right out to the rooms. And so this was the hunter of iascaigh says

00:20:23--> 00:20:44

and hunted out of soda. Yep. And here, they believe that the hunter of Fatima was right here, right next to, you know, very close next to that vision of Ayesha. So this is the profits daughter, right? And Ollie, and I can't read that one. This one says have sought.

00:20:46--> 00:20:47

And then each of them

00:20:48--> 00:20:52

have their labels, which I can't see from here.

00:20:54--> 00:20:54


00:20:56--> 00:21:11

But so Pamela, you can see how, as the profits and loss lm had more wise, and as things developed, they would just add a similar kind of house, just keep adding them right to the side.

00:21:12--> 00:21:36

And of course, this is the spot where, you know, right above this is now the green dome, right? The green dome, that we so famously associate with the masjid of of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he is buried. And he was buried here, right? In this little house of Arusha. And I'm going to show you,

00:21:37--> 00:21:38


00:21:40--> 00:21:56

going to show you what that looked like. Okay, just for you to get an idea. Oh, this is another view. Oh, and handle, oh, we've got we've got the names. So this is basically the same as the previous, but it's like another angle, right? And

00:21:57--> 00:22:14

yeah, so this one was hafsa. This is Asia. So that and then furtiva. And then on the selama. And you can see how they show that there's an excess here, the prophet SAW someone could have access straight from my house.

00:22:15--> 00:22:20

You know, and just easily you could access the masjid from various points here.

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

And this was by the seventh of hegira.

00:22:25--> 00:22:26

Right, alright.

00:22:28--> 00:22:59

Here's another model. This is a, from a different exhibition. But I like this one, it's really nice. I love the way they've made that right. So they again they have this covered space, they have an open space. And then you know, close access to the masjid, this area of the masjid, you know, this this way would have been the Qibla is covered, right? with leaves and stuff. And here, this is where the, you know,

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

people have suffice to stay,

00:23:03--> 00:23:05

you know, a border, etc.

00:23:06--> 00:23:08

And this area was open.

00:23:10--> 00:23:12

Isn't that cool? Mashallah

00:23:13--> 00:23:30

Panama really makes you realize, you know, what kind of simple life he was actually going to live now. Right? Very simple life very simple home, basically a room, right? Basically a room with a little open space.

00:23:35--> 00:23:35


00:23:39--> 00:23:46

And this is from another book, I found all about the house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says from an Arabic book.

00:23:47--> 00:24:01

And this is an alternative interpretation of what the, you know, the digital, Isha would have been like, okay, and here, they seem to have made like another floor, as well. Okay.

00:24:02--> 00:24:08

And like, but again, there's that courtyard area, and then there's a covered space, right.

00:24:10--> 00:24:27

So, obviously, like, these are models that people have, you know, like scholars have kind of put together after reading the ahaadeeth and the descriptions and you know, that kind of artist's impressions but it's nice because it kind of brings it to life for us, right.

00:24:28--> 00:24:32

Oh, I love this one. This was in the exhibition.

00:24:34--> 00:24:47

About Medina. And this was supposed to be a model of Ayesha's house is like quite big. It's quite a big model, just to kind of show show people like how different various access is.

00:24:48--> 00:24:56

And in here, instead of having an open space, it was like, part of the roof was kind of

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

you know, covered

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

Okay, and Paul was open here.

00:25:03--> 00:25:05

And then this part was all covered

00:25:08--> 00:25:12

look at the simplicity of the building materials that we're using right.

00:25:13--> 00:25:14

So Pamela

00:25:17--> 00:25:19

And here is another model this is from a different

00:25:21--> 00:25:23

from a different exhibition. Okay.

00:25:24--> 00:25:32

Let me just check in with you guys that you can see all of this because I have no idea whether you are with me or not.

00:25:34--> 00:25:40

We can feel okay hamdulillah Yeah, do let me know if because I can't see the chat at the moment you see.

00:25:44--> 00:25:53

Analyze and amazing Look at that. Like this is the it's like a bit of a fence almost right made of wood. And this is the wall of the masjid right.

00:25:55--> 00:26:18

This would have been her house and I don't know if they've left this open on purpose for like to say that part of it only part of it was covered. Or if they're just allowing us to see inside I'm not sure about this bit. But yeah, look at the little window there. Simple. A simple little house. Right? That's what I showed them on ha

00:26:19--> 00:26:20

came to

00:26:23--> 00:26:27

this is cool. This is somebody

00:26:28--> 00:26:38

you know, reconstructed what they believe the inside of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam 's house without a shadow would have looked like right.

00:26:42--> 00:26:58

So it's like a simple bed, right? Like very simple. And one on the floor as well like, looks like aunt made of animals covered with animal skins or something. Right, like a simple rug there a portal to

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

some kind of tools or implements for cleaning.

00:27:06--> 00:27:14

Maybe bags, I think they are water skins. Allahu Allah, right? There's just like one.

00:27:15--> 00:27:28

There's actually videos on YouTube, you can find that kind of give you a little tour of that room. Okay, if you're interested in that kind of thing. I love this kind of thing right? upon Allah. This is the Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.

00:27:30--> 00:27:32

Just last week, I actually went to visit

00:27:34--> 00:27:38

the house where William Shakespeare was born, which is quite interesting.

00:27:39--> 00:27:42

Which, you know, they've actually preserved and they've kind of

00:27:44--> 00:28:36

brought it back to life the way it might have been in Tudor times. And, of course, that was, you know, somebody who, people in England and especially all over the world really celebrate right for his literary genius. But Subhan Allah, you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is more deserving of us being interested and being, you know, having exhibitions and showing this kind of thing to bring, you know, some of that kind of realization, and about how simple life was at that time, right? How basic, the greatest man who ever lived, how basic his standard of living was, how simple it was, I mean, and how, you know, beautiful it was, and how these great women of the past

00:28:36--> 00:28:40

that I should have done had the mothers of the believers and how they lived.

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

You know?

00:28:46--> 00:29:01

Oh, this is very interesting. Okay, and I should maybe I should have shown you this later on. But I'm too I'm into it now. So I can't, I can't stop showing you the slides. This is Subhana Allah

00:29:05--> 00:29:06

a reconstruction

00:29:08--> 00:29:27

of how I should have done his house would have been once the profits are the low exam and passed away. Right, because remember, the profits are a long way of selling he was buried where he passed away. So this is meant to be in the grave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

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

model of it, obviously.

00:29:31--> 00:29:40

And you know, this so I should have the honor would have lived, right. She would have lived with the grave obviously in house, right.

00:29:42--> 00:29:43

So Pamela,

00:29:44--> 00:29:45

isn't that amazing?

00:29:47--> 00:29:53

And obviously, this is the area above which now is the green dome. Right.

00:29:57--> 00:29:57


00:30:00--> 00:30:02

I'm gonna show you one more, I think.

00:30:04--> 00:30:09

Which you, Pamela? Again, I probably should show you this later on. But

00:30:10--> 00:30:23

it's just too interesting. Right? This is. So Pamela This is supposed to be the hairdryer via or the LAN Ha. Off to the death of abubaker and Omar as well, right.

00:30:25--> 00:30:33

Because obviously, Abubakar and Omar, they were buried in her house, right? And so

00:30:35--> 00:30:51

what she did was, especially once Omar was buried there, she had this long kind of barrier built in between the graves and her living areas. In other words, her living area became even more small, right.

00:30:54--> 00:31:00

And the reason why she did that is because she felt kind of a sense of hierarchy, right?

00:31:03--> 00:31:23

in a room where Omar was buried, you know, because obviously, the prophet SAW Selim abubaker, or because her father his harem of the prophets, Hassan was her husband. But now there's like this man, who she was she really respected and she had a lot of or, you know, regarding armor, everyone did. Right.

00:31:24--> 00:31:41

And, and obviously, he was hitting on her arm as well. So she just felt uncomfortable. I think she felt it was more respectable if she had some sort of barrier on the right. So panelizer amazing. Isn't that just so interesting?

00:31:43--> 00:31:50

Hmm, let me see what else I had. That is it. Okay, for now, that is all. So let me go back.

00:31:53--> 00:31:56

I've probably spent the entire lesson now.

00:31:59--> 00:32:36

I probably spend the entire lesson just showing you those now. Right? But Pamela is just so interesting. It's just so you know, spam. But wouldn't it be great if if there were like, there was a museum or exhibitions that we could take our kids to here even or, you know, museums of Islam, where, you know, our children could really see these things. And Hamblen Medina, there is this one museum that I found. So, you know, if you do get a chance, make sure you go and visit that Museum, right, make sure you get a nice tour of a historical tour, as well of, you know, the Prophet's mosque,

00:32:37--> 00:32:50

to kind of be able to bring all of these things that we read about, and we study about bring them to life, you know, sometimes we imagine the Sahaba, we imagine the Sahaba yet

00:32:51--> 00:33:10

using our own kind of lens and our own standard of living and our own cultures, right? But actually, you know, Allah, they, they lived a very simple life, you know, their, their, their homes were very simple.

00:33:11--> 00:33:16

their belongings were very simple, right? And that's why it was such a big deal later on.

00:33:18--> 00:33:34

When the Muslim started to become so wealthy, and it was such a big deal, right? I shut it down how she was she would cry when she saw how luxurious the bread had become that they were eating right, nice, soft bread made of,

00:33:35--> 00:33:52

you know, wheat that had been ground. So finally, and, you know, that was seen as something so luxurious, right? Because she wasn't used to that, that wasn't the life that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his Sahaba were used to

00:33:54--> 00:33:57

Subhana Allah, so I'm not sure now if I should

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

do q&a, or if I should,

00:34:05--> 00:34:06

you know, carry on with,

00:34:07--> 00:34:11

with what I was intending to carry on with it.

00:34:12--> 00:34:17

So if you have any thoughts about that? Do you share them with me?

00:34:19--> 00:34:24

Well, first of all, please tell me how you feel about that. You know, seeing all those

00:34:25--> 00:34:26

pictures, seeing those?

00:34:28--> 00:34:31

Those reconstructions, you know, what does it make you feel and

00:34:35--> 00:34:37

what are your thoughts when you see those?

00:34:38--> 00:34:40

I'd love to hear, okay.

00:34:42--> 00:34:44

One of the sisters is saying

00:34:45--> 00:34:48

I saw a video on YouTube of this picture and it made me cry.

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

It would be amazing if a life sized version of this could be built like the World of Harry Potter studio. Yeah. Nothing like it actually. But only

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

Anything I can think of right now? Yeah, I mean, I felt a bit embarrassed mentioning William Shakespeare right in the same breath as Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, of course, like there's no comparison, but it was just interesting going to Stratford upon Avon. And, like, where Shakespeare was born, and how, how much care they've taken to kind of preserve his house. And, you know, although probably hardly any of his belongings are in there.

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

They've reconstructed you know, what a typical Tudor house would have looked like at that time, and just kind of somebody who you've studied or you've read about, and you know so much about, and in our case, you know, somebody who we love so much. It kind of brings

00:35:49--> 00:35:57

brings things to life for us, doesn't it? It really does. And it makes it more kind of real, I think, for our children as well.

00:36:00--> 00:36:03

For her and for sharing those pictures. You're welcome. Welcome.

00:36:05--> 00:36:10

Do any pictures exist of the houses in Makkah before the migration?

00:36:11--> 00:36:13

Yeah, I've actually got a got a book.

00:36:14--> 00:36:24

It's very expensive books, like over 50 pounds. I think. It's quite an expensive book. And it's called the house of Khadija. But the

00:36:26--> 00:36:27

house of Khadija.

00:36:28--> 00:36:29


00:36:30--> 00:36:35

you can look it up online. Maybe I will share some pictures from there one day

00:36:36--> 00:36:39

and it kind of reconstructs Smucker

00:36:41--> 00:37:32

at the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam at the time of Khadija, right, especially, and especially her house, and apparently when there was some archeological kind of digging that took place there, they did find the house of Khadija of Ghana, the the remains or the foundations of it. And so they could kind of get an idea of the types of rooms that there were etc. But the digging that they did they the real thing that they found was not her house from the time of Khadija but later on, because because people knew where the location of the house of Khadija or the owner was subsequent, like leaders and stuff bought bought that. Right. And they built a building there,

00:37:32--> 00:37:39

apparently even became like a school like I have the school. So it's quite interesting, you know, so, yeah.

00:37:41--> 00:38:00

I'm just saying it will be negative soon. Yes. It really brings it to life and helps to conceptualize what we read and learn about Yes, and hamdulillah just like a home for the slides, it really forces us to reflect on our lifestyles, definitely some heilala just think about that. You know, I think it

00:38:02--> 00:38:05

you know, the whole idea of living in one room.

00:38:06--> 00:38:16

That's I mean, people complain when they live in a big house and have to share it with their in laws, right? Even if they have their own room, they find that difficult.

00:38:18--> 00:38:29

But can you imagine like literally just having one small space like that and you do everything that right, you cook there, you bathe there, you sleep there

00:38:31--> 00:38:40

to go to the bathroom, obviously, they used to go off actually they used to go somewhere else, externals, they had like a remote place

00:38:42--> 00:38:58

where they would go for that. But swana law is such a simple simple life, right? It makes us should make us grateful for the for the ease that we have the running water that we have the you know, the luxuries that we have really

00:39:00--> 00:39:07

imagine what would happen when it rained. You know if it if and when it rained. It would have been very difficult.

00:39:10--> 00:39:17

Makes me feel more connected to them as I can visualize how their day to day life might have been. Yeah, absolutely.

00:39:23--> 00:39:59

Sister says I guess none of it matters when you're with the beloved civil law civil law. So yeah, so Pamela, you know, well, you know, we will find later that actually, you know, so panela the the wives of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they were human beings. And, you know, they were not angels. They were not. They're not meant to be seen as angels, right? These were human beings living a real human experience and going through real human tests. And so there was a point at which the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did

00:40:00--> 00:40:17

find it difficult to live that kind of lifestyle, especially when they saw that the rest of Medina were kind of, you know, becoming more kind of modernized, whatever modernized was for that time, or more developed and more kind of wealthier?

00:40:18--> 00:40:25

You know, it did, it did affect them, you know, inshallah, we'll see what happened at that point. But

00:40:26--> 00:40:29

the thing that we'll find, and you'll see is that,

00:40:30--> 00:41:03

you know, in the end, they made the right choice, they realized that no, the reason why they were being they were living that life, and they were being given that simple life to live was because Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was the Messenger of Allah. And he was not allowed to, and he couldn't live that kind of luxurious life because he had to set the ultimate example. And also because he had chosen, he had chosen

00:41:04--> 00:41:09

a life of simplicity, right? over a life of luxury

00:41:10--> 00:41:24

sister says, All the materialism and the luxuries, but they can't feel our spiritual emptiness. Only the worship and remembrance of lack can come to the love for the beauty of our religion, indeed.

00:41:26--> 00:41:27

So sisters,

00:41:28--> 00:41:41

I am conscious that if I start a new topic or a new point now that I'm going to have to cut it right at 8pm. So inshallah,

00:41:43--> 00:41:51

we will see if there are any other questions. And, you know, do please share with me any of the kind of

00:41:52--> 00:42:06

reflections that you've had, some of the reflections you guys share with me are really amazing, really interesting. And inshallah people will benefit? You know, what are some of the thoughts that you've had? so far? Some of the, I don't know,

00:42:07--> 00:42:37

aha moments, you know, sound like Oprah? No, no, I mean, like, you know, those kind of inspiring moments, anything kind of that has really stood out for you so far, in the classes regarding eyeshadow delanda, please do share that with us. Is there anything you're going through right now that you know, aspects of the hedger or aspects of the, you know, the tests that abubaker went through? Or you know,

00:42:38--> 00:42:49

the life of ideation and the description of her personality, etc. Is there anything that has particularly resonated with you please do share with us,

00:42:51--> 00:43:00

Sr is asking, is living a luxurious life wrong? No, living a luxurious life is not wrong.

00:43:03--> 00:43:16

You know, if a person has wealth, then they all then they can spend it, you know, on luxurious things. However, I guess

00:43:18--> 00:43:26

it's a matter of a person's own personal water or sense of, I would say,

00:43:28--> 00:43:43

you know, sense of how, how strong they want to be on themselves, how hard they want to be on themselves, with regards to staying away from material things, you know, because, you know, people do observe that

00:43:44--> 00:44:07

sometimes, having more luxury, seeking it going after it, it doesn't satisfy you, it can cause you to want even more and even more and even more, but if a person can control themselves, if they can, you know, live in luxury, but be thankful, be grateful, you know,

00:44:08--> 00:44:45

make sure that they're using their wealth for the sake of Allah, you know, and not just on luxury, and not just on those kind of luxurious things, which they can't take with them. Right, once we die. We can't take those things with us. You know, look what happened to the ancient Egyptians. They tried, you know, they tried to bury themselves bury their kings with all the gold and all the riches and even their pets and whatever those cats were, you know, they literally try to bury themselves with all of their belongings and riches and,

00:44:47--> 00:45:00

and, you know, some English guy came and stole them and put them in a museum. So Subhanallah we can't take any of these luxuries with us. But while we're here on Earth, of course, you know,

00:45:01--> 00:45:52

Allah loves beauty. If we like wearing beautiful clouds, we like having a good car if we like having good. So at that time, it would have been a good, you know, course, there's nothing wrong with that, that was not seen as a negative thing. However, you know, if you look at the example of the great people of the past, you find that those those who wanted to be close to Allah, they would not allow wealth to become something that they were attached to in their hearts, right. So Walker was wealthy, other people were wealthy, but they knew their priorities, they wanted to spend and invest in their aka, right. And that was their priority. I think for us, the main thing as women especially is the

00:45:52--> 00:45:55

idea of living within our means, you know,

00:45:57--> 00:46:23

that sense of satisfaction, being satisfied with what we have, you know, so panela, the human human appetites are never satisfied, you know, might get two handbags worth, you still want another one in another color, right? Or another style or for another occasion, and, and those appetites just never end. It's as if it's a bottomless pit, right? So we have to

00:46:24--> 00:47:12

set that set sense of control upon ourselves. But no, in and of itself, there's nothing wrong with, you know, living in a lovely house, or you know, like having luxuries, it's when it becomes excessive, it becomes obsessive. And it's when we start neglecting our obligations, neglecting the needs of the poor and neglecting our obligations as well as aka. or making money through how long means right. That's when it becomes problematic. Do we know how old Ayesha was when the profits or someone passed away? Yes. She was about 18 years old, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam passed away.

00:47:13--> 00:47:16

Okay, just knock on one level. Hi, Ron.

00:47:17--> 00:47:42

I didn't start something new after the pictures, because, you know, then I would have had to cut the right in the middle. But in short, I hope that that has that's been like a really interesting session, you know, a little bit different, maybe. But, yeah, I hope that's been interesting. There is one correction I wanted to make actually from last time. I think I mistakenly said that.

00:47:44--> 00:48:20

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was related to the people of Medina, you know, the tribes of Medina via his mother's side? No, that's not correct. What I should have said and what I meant to say was that he was only related through his father's side, right his father's side and maybe we will share that story of how he's related to the people of Medina. But obviously I want to keep the focus on Russia and China. There are many videos and classes out there you can take about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in particular.

00:48:22--> 00:48:58

So desire Kamala Harris, I'm going to sign off people would like to go and pray Muslim now of course, and inshallah we will carry on next time. We'll talk about the eyeshadow on her. In the house of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, what was her dynamic like with the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasallam some of the incidents that happened, what was and we're going to go on to talk about her relationship with her co wives, her relationship with Fatima or Dylan ha, and other incidents that happen right some of the battles

00:48:59--> 00:49:17

and her role in them. So, inshallah with that, I'm going to bid you farewell. Hope that was beneficial. jazak Milan parent subhanak. Allahu MOBA. handig a Chateau La Ilaha. illa Anta istockphoto go to bootleg Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
