Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah the brothers and sisters as salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh and welcome to another episode of the life of a sham Mother of the Believers with me, Fatima baraka to Allah.
In the last episode we were continuing the story of the slander of Ayesha Ayesha Dylon had, for the first time heard about the slander, and even heard that some of the Muslims were spreading that rumor, right? You're although the hypocrites were the ones who had started the rumor, some Muslims were also spreading that rumor. And she had asked the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, if she could go to her parents house, because she wanted to consult them. And she wanted to verify and make sure that what she'd heard about the slander was actually taking place. So she went and she says, I asked my mother, Oh, Mother, what are the people talking about?
And she said, Oh, my daughter, don't worry. So she's trying to calm I shut her down. For scarcely Is there a charming woman who is loved by her husband, and whose husband has other wives besides herself, that they, the other women try to find faults with her. So I should have been and his mother, she was thinking maybe out of jealousy or something like this, you know, some of the other wives or something had started this rumor. Of course, that was not true at all. The wives of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, were not part of this rumor spreading at all. It was, of course, the hypocrites and some of the Muslims who fell into this the spreading of the rumor.
So I shattered the line who hears about this now from the person who loves her the most right? Her mother. And so this makes her heart sink. She says Subhan Allah, are the people really talking in this way.
And we see from this, again, her innocence. Her reaction shows us it's the reaction of an innocent person of a person who couldn't even imagine or think of something like this, let alone do something like this.
We also see that, you know, her parents and
in our lives as well, people who wish us well, they will always try to make us feel stronger. They'll always try to make us feel calm, and to try to overcome challenges. And that's what I share. The land has mother on Romain was trying to do
action at the law on her continues and she says that she could not stop weeping all night.
She couldn't stop weeping, and neither could she sleep.
And then in the morning, she said I kept on weeping. Again, this is the reaction of an innocent person.
A Muslims honor is so precious to a Muslim that Subhanallah if anything, tries to taint it, if anything touches Muslims, reputation and sense of integrity.
It it upsets a Muslim more then some kind of physical injury.
I should have Aisha Dillon her continues when the divine inspiration was delayed.
Allah's Messenger called Ali bin Abi toilet. So the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called Ali bin Abi Talib and Osama bin Zayed to ask and consult them.
Here we see that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hasn't received any revelation. And so he is confused as to what he should do. And what he does in that circumstance is call on to people who he loves and trusts to people from his own family or he who he considers to be his own family. And those are I live in Abu Talib and Osama bin Zayed.
Osama bin Zayed is of course, the son of Zaid Bin Haritha. Who was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam adopted son right prior to adoption, not being something that the Muslims were allowed to do.
Zaid had been the prophets adopted son. And sama was then like a grandson to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and at this time he would have been a teenager. i Lee was also like a son or a younger brother to the prophets, Allah Allah when he was
Solomon had grown up in his household. So he thought to consult them.
I should tells us that Osama bin Zaid told the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam about that, of course I shut it down. I was innocent.
He said about her, Oh Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she is your wife and we do not know anything except good about her. I live in a B Taalib rodilla. On who said, O Allah's messenger. Allah does not put you in difficulty. And there are plenty of women other than her.
Yet, why don't you ask the maid servant who will tell you the truth. So
here two people are giving the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, two different perspectives. One is saying, Look, we know Asha Dylon, we know her and we've we know everything about her and we know that she would not do something like this. And
Ali bin Abi thought live. On the other hand, he's just suggesting to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. But if this situation is causing you a lot of angst, then, you know, there are other women you could marry. You don't have to stay married to a shirt on the land. And of course, he's just giving the Prophet sallallahu wasallam a different perspective.
At the same time, Ali bin Abi Talib are the Alon who gives the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam an excellent way of verifying, you know, if anything untoward was going on. He says why don't you ask? I shudder Dylan has made servant buddy era. Because of course the maid servant. She knows the goings on of the household. She knows who comes to the house and who exits and you know, et cetera, et cetera. So she will tell you the truth. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called buddy era I should have the Elan has made servant. And he said to her Obadiah Did you ever see anything which arouse your suspicion?
So here the Prophet SAW Allah when he was sending them. It's not that he doubts I shattered Ilana. But before he goes out in public, and makes a statement, he wants to make sure that he's, you know, checked with all the possible people who could verify a shadow DOM has character, right so that he has extra kind of support extra proof.
So he says to buddy Rob, did you ever see anything which aroused your suspicion? And Maria says to him, and you know, now she's like, in the position of a witness, so she has to think hard. If she can think of anything that ever made her think about Aisha Dylan her will see anything negative in action and the Lana, right. So she says to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, by him who has sent you with the truth. I have never seen anything in her in Arusha, which I would conceal, except that she is a young girl. And sometimes she falls asleep. Leaving the dough, right, the dough that she's needing, leaving the dough uncovered. So goats come in and they eat it. Subhanallah so buddy
era, she says, I can't think of any fault with that you should have the liner. Except, and it seems like this happens to be something like a like a great bet to buddy and I has with eyeshadow, the liner that you know when she's kneading dough, and it's the dough of the family meaning that's the dough that they're going to be eating that day making bread out of an eating cheese sometimes, you know, being a young lady, she falls asleep. And so the goat wanders into the house and eats the dough. Subhanallah that's the only thing she could think of. That was negative, if you can call that negative about our mother, our Isha or on the Lana SubhanAllah. Again, it emphasizes, doesn't it?
how young she was, how innocent she was. And you know how something like this was something that was impossible and something that she would never ever dream of going there.
on that day, Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got up on the pulpit, and he complained about Abdullah bin obey bin Salman, in front of the companions and this is actually written narrating and she says, He said,
Oh Muslims, who will really
Give me from that man who has hurt me with his evil statement about my family. By Allah. I know nothing except good about my family, about my wife. And they have, and they have blamed a man about whom I know nothing except good. So here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is referring to Safwan Benoit, but he's saying, you know, this is a pious young man. And my wife is one a good lady is nothing negative that I know about her.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, And he Safwan use us never to enter my home, except with me. So if you know if, say the prophets, Allah, Saddam was having a dinner or something like this, then only then would suffer one and to his home and only with the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam. So after the break, we're going to see how the tensions began to rise. And the hosts and the hazards tribe began to argue and have problems between them because of this incident. Join me after the break, is that Kamala Harris was salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
welcome back. So before the break, we said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got onto the pulpit onto the member and he had made a speech. He told the people that you know that the slander was completely wrong and that
this man Abdullah bin obey bin cellule, the head of them on Africa and the hypocrites he had a hurt the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with regards to his daughter Aisha sorry with regards to his wife, Aisha. And with regards to his companion Safwan been mortal who he knew was a pious man. Now what you have to know is that Abdullah bin obey bin Salman was from the Hazaragi tribe. In Medina, they were two major tribes, the oldest tribe and the husband's tribe, Abdullah bin obey the head of the hypocrites was from the Hazaragi tribe in the past, US and Hazaragi had been at war with one another.
But of course, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam came to Medina which had which was previously called the etheric. He had made peace between the US and hazards tribe and in fact, you know, he had a raised that tribalism to some extent. And he had created, of course, the bonds of a brotherhood between the US and cartilage as Muslims. Right. And so they were known as the unsolved however, of course, that was very recent, and so sad Ben wive,
who was one of the leaders of the OSI tribe, when he heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying, how this man Abdullah bin obey bin Salman had hurt him, hurt the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with what he had done. He got up and he said, O Allah's Messenger,
I will relieve you of him.
If he is from the tribe of Hollows, so he's saying, I will relieve you of this man who has who has caused you hurt. If this man is from the tribe of alows, then I will chop his head off. And if he is from our brothers, meaning the coverage, then you come on us and we will fulfill your order
Subhan Allah and on that a man or one of the leaders of the husband's tribe got up and this was sad Ben Oba the chief of Hazzard tribe.
And, you know SubhanAllah.
Because of this incident, what happened was that suddenly those feelings of tribalism
rose to the surface right. And sad Ben Oba from the hazards tribe said by Allah, you have, you have not told the truth or you have you have told a lie. You shall not and cannot kill him. If he belonged to your people, you would not wish him to be killed
Subhanallah on that or say Ben who there who was the cousin of sad Ben wild got up and said to sad Ben Oba by Allah you are a liar, we will surely kill him and you are a hypocrite, defending and arguing on the on behalf of the hypocrites.
On this, the two tribes of Los Angeles has raged got so kind of
excited that they were about to fight. While Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was standing on the member
and I showed the Lana says, Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kept on calming them down, till they became silent and so did he. So Subhanallah on top of the harm and the hurt that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is feeling this incident started to ignite negative feelings between us and hazards right because Abdullah bin obey bin Salman was from the Heritage tribe.
I shall dwell on her continues. All that day. I kept on weeping with my tears never ceasing, and I could not sleep. In the morning, my parents were with me. And I wept for two nights and a day, with my tears continuously flowing, and I couldn't sleep, and I thought that my liver would burst from weeping.
She says, So while my parents were sitting with me, and I was weeping and unsavoury woman, a woman from the unsought asked to enter. And I allowed her to come in.
And she came in, she sat down, and she started to weep with me Subhan Allah can see from this that everyone is speechless. You know, are you sure that the Lionheart doesn't know what to say? Except cry?
backer is silent. On Romain, her mother is silent. And one of her Sisters in Islam, right from the answer she comes to us. She's heard about this, you know, the, this calamity that's going on. And she just wants to be with Aisha Blanca. She just wants to show sympathy and empathy with our mother, Aisha. And, you know, one of the best ways to do that sometimes is not with our words, but by just being with somebody. And so she just wants to sit there without issue then on her. And she is responding in this with the same emotion that are issued at the law and her had which was to weep.
And I showed her the Lana says while we were in this state, Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came. So this is coming now to Abu Bakr is home, right? He greeted us and sat down.
And she said that he had not sat down with me since the day of the slander.
A month had elapsed.
And she says that no divine revelation had come to him about my case. So can you imagine for a whole month there was silence when it came to Revelation. And of course, the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam couldn't just demand revelation, you know, it's something that Allah subhanaw taala gave him or sent to him whenever Allah subhanaw taala wanted. So they were having to be very, very patient.
An entire month of rumors being spread in the most malicious way about a mother Isha. And
she says that Allah's Messenger recited the Shahada. And then he said, uh, my bad, oh Aisha,
I have been informed, such and such about you. If you are innocent, then don't worry, Allah will soon reveal your innocence. And if you have committed a mistake,
then repent to Allah and ask him for forgiveness. For when a slave confesses his sins and asks Allah for forgiveness, Allah accepts his repentance.
Subhan Allah, you know, this is a very, very amazing thing that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is doing.
And as you can see, the greatest concern of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was never about, you know, revenge or getting something for himself, or, you know, getting his own back or fixing his own feelings about something. No, his greatest concern was always to do the thing that would benefit the believers the most. And so even in this situation, he wants what's best for Aisha and he's saying to her look,
even if you did commit a mistake, there's forgiveness for you. There's hope for you.
And of course, it shattered the Lana
would not have liked even the suggestion that she might have
I've made that mistake. So she says when Allah's Messenger salAllahu alayhi wa sallam finished his speech, my tears ceased flowing completely. And I no longer felt a single drop, flowing from my eyes. And she says, I said to my father, reply to Allah's Messenger on my behalf, concerning what he has said.
And Abubaker said, By Allah, I do not know what to say to Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then she turns to her mother, and she says,
My mother replied to Allah's Messenger on my behalf, concerning what he has said. So in other words, she wants him to defend her.
And her mother says, By Allah, I do not know what to say to Allah's Messenger. And Allah when he was salam.
Subhan Allah, so you see, even her own parents are speechless, they, they don't know how they're meant to respond to this, what they're meant to do.
Except wait for the revelation to come right.
And yet I showed the Lana is turning to them.
And in this moment, you can really feel how alone and Mother I shattered, Rana was, you know,
her husband, her father, her mother,
her co wives, the other Muslims, nobody could really help her in this situation. Nobody could help her in this situation. And she must have felt that the only person the only being that she could turn to was Allah subhanaw taala.
And, you know, there are times in our own lives that we will experience this, if we are somebody who Allah subhanaw taala loves, there will be times when we will feel completely alone. There'll be times when we feel that our spouse, our parents, our siblings, our family, our best friends, nobody can help us. And we are forced to only turn to Allah subhanaw taala. And that is a blessing, that's actually a blessing. It's Allah Subhana Allah drawing us closer to him. And that's what Allah subhanaw taala was doing in this situation.
Aisha says, in spite of the fact that I was a young girl, and I had very little knowledge of the Quran, I said, By Allah, no doubt, I know that you have heard this slanderous speech to such an extent you've heard it so many times that it has been implanted into your minds, and you have taken it as the truth. Now, if I say that I'm innocent, you will not believe me. And if I confess to you about it, and Allah knows that I am innocent. You will believe me. By Allah, I find no similitude for me, except for me and you except that of Abu use of the father of use of Shri means Yaqoob alayhi salam when he said FASAB rune Jamil
patience is the most fitting for me. While law Hill was Stan, Allah matassa for that, and Allah alone is the one who can help
in this situation. So brothers and sisters, we've come to the end of this episode. In the next episode, we will look at what happened at the end of this incident. And after the incident of the slander of Aisha, radi Allah, Allah has come allow her until next time. salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Subhanak hola homophobia handig eyeshadow Hola, ilaha illa Anta esta felucca word to be like
