Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah dear brothers and sisters as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah he will back out to and welcome to another episode of the life of Aisha, mother of the believers with me your sister Fatima Baraka to Allah. In the last episode we mentioned some of the unique characteristics of our mother Aisha or the Hello Anna, that she was exonerated by Allah in the Quran that the angel gibreel sent his salam to her that she was the most beloved person to on us all Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and was the daughter of the most beloved man to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam she was the only wife in whose home the Quran was revealed. And it was
because of her that the verses of tiamo the dry ablution were revealed as a rasa, an ease for the believers.
She is the one whose hand applied perfume to the beard of Rasul Allah, whose lap was the place where he passed away salallahu alayhi wasallam. We mentioned that she was one of the most prolific curators of Hadith and a great scholar of Islam.
We also mentioned the special reviewed status of the wives of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that they were from the Al Bayt, the household of the Prophet.
And what was their special status? Allah says about them in the Quran, and be you Oh lab bill, meaning I mean, I'm forcing him What is the word you who Omaha to home in salt hub, iron number six, Allah says, The Prophet is more worthy of the believers than themselves, and his wives are in the position of their mothers.
Indeed, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about our T shirt or the lion had that the virtue of our Isha over other women is like the virtue of or the superiority of ferried special food over all other types of foods.
She had a common ancestor with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who is Maura. So her family tree met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family tree there and goes all the way back to Ibrahim Ali Salaam. We mentioned her names and her titles. We mentioned her father abubaker and also the fact that she had two sisters and three brothers. We mentioned her mother or middleman. Her father Abubakar had four wives over the span of his life. So I share about the line had three brothers and two sisters. Her mother was on Roman and her full sibling from the same mother was of the man of the Rahman bin abubaker. And later we're going to meet his daughter, whose name was
Amara, and she was one of the key students of Ayesha. She also had elder half siblings are smart, you know, a smart, famous smartypants Abu Bakar. And of course, Abdullah, a smart was married to a Zubair benalla worm, and some of her children were also key students of Asia. Her third brother was Mohammed even Avi bhaker.
Mohammed bin Abu Bakar was the son of a smart beans or mace, who was the widow of Jaffer when Abby polyp Abubakar married in Medina.
Interestingly, Mohammed bin abubaker was born during the final Hajj of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And so he was just a child when Rasulullah Salallahu alaihe salam passed away.
He was brought up in the house of Ali because aboubaker passed away when he was a child as well and later became the governor of Egypt. He will come up later in the life of Aisha divan her as he was the father of one of our key students, Qasim, then Muhammad.
Khufu was Ayesha, Raglan has youngest sister and she was the daughter of Abu Bakr his wife heavy bobbins hydrogen. Uncle foam was born after the death of abubaker
and openfoam later married, they'll have been Obaidullah the great Sahabi and the daughter I shouldn't spoil her was a key student again of our Isha about the Allahu Allah.
Her father influenced her a lot. she recalled a hadith that her father used to recite Quran with so much passion that people would stand in awe of him.
McCann's became afraid that due to the recitation of aboubaker, the women and children were being attracted to Islam. And so they tried to stop him and persecute him.
So abubaker decided to leave for Abyssinia as he was leaving with his family packing all this things. A man and influential man called Ibn a. Davina saw him and asked him where was he going? When he heard he was very upset. He said well to courage that a man like you should be forced to leave them. And he told them all Bucher to go back home and that he would give him his protection. You know, they had a system in those days that a person and influential person can give protection to someone else, and then nobody could harm that person. So Abubakar and his family went back home.
And so abubaker decided to build a prayer place next to his house and even more people became attracted to Islam due to this prayer place that he built.
The Quraysh saw this and they complained to him in a Davina so even a Davina went to Abu Bakar and said, Please don't put me in a difficult position. abubaker said to him, I don't need your protection Allah is enough for me. So panela this was the resolve and strength that our Isha witnessed from her own father from a young age, and it no doubt influenced her personality.
Two years after the death of God God Allah one ha, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was living alone with his daughters.
A lady called hola bin takim came to the prophet and asked him if he would like to get married. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replied, all right, but with whom?
She suggested a widow and an unmarried woman. The widow she suggested was soda bint Zama. The unmarried girl she suggested was our Isha bins or boubakeur. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married sewed up, and hola bint Hakeem went to the house of abubaker with a proposal for our Isha.
I shattered the land, I was actually already in talks to marry the son of mortar MBI D. So when Abu Bakar heard, he went to meet me to make sure that there would be no hard feelings, and not m who was not a Muslim relieved him of any obligation. So the path was clear and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married our Isha, but she continued to live with her parents because she was not mature enough to live with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
After his marriage to Arusha, the persecution in Makkah became unbearable.
So the Prophet sallahu wa sallam started to talk about hijra migration to Medina. One day when Asha and a smart were sitting with aboubaker, there was a knock on the door, and boubakeur ran out to find that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was standing there. I boubakeur reassured him and said, Don't worry, there is no one in the house except your family. So please proceed. And I should relate what happened. She describes in an aeration that at that time, Allah His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was still in Makkah, and he said to his companions, your place of emigration has been shown to me.
And then she goes on to say that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam declared it some of the companions migrated to Medina, and some of them who had gone to harbor Shah Abyssinia returned in order to go to Medina
have a worker began to prepare camels and you know, just get ready for the journey. So Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said to him, wait, I'm just waiting for Allah Subhana Allah to give me permission.
abubaker postponed his departure in order to accompany on assault Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but he still kept preparing for the journey. After the break, we will continue the story of the hegira of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and our mother Ayesha are the Allah. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Welcome back to the life of Aisha mother of the believers. Before the break, we said that Abu Bakr Siddiq, Ayesha's father was preparing for the Hydra, and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had said to him, wait
For I expect to be permitted to emigrate soon. And Abu Bakar had said, May my mother and father be sacrificed for you know what I saw Allah Do you really expect that? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had replied in the affirmative. So abubaker had been preparing camels, feeding them, getting them ready for the long journey. I shall read the Lana describes the day when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came with his head covered at a time when he never usually used to
abubaker realize that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam must have come for something urgent because he'd come at a time when he never usually came. Allah His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came and asked permission to enter and he was allowed to enter. When he came in, he said to Abu Bakar tell everyone who is present with you to leave aboubaker replied, there's no one here but your family. My father and mother be sacrificed for you. Yeah, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
A messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I have been given permission to migrate. Have a backer said, Will I accompany you? May my father be sacrificed for you older Salalah
and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said yes. I should also said before I saw aboubaker cry that day. I never thought that anyone could cry out of happiness. She continues abubaker said, O Allah's Messenger. Take one of these two she camels of mine. Allah's Messenger replied, I will accept it with payment. So she says that we prepared the baggage quickly and put some food for the journey in a leather bag for them. A smart abubaker his daughter cut a piece from her waist belt so she took her waist belt off and tore it into and she tied the mouth of the leather bag with it. And it is for that reason that a smart vent or B Bucher is known as a VAT on the tarkine, the owner of
the two belts because on a soul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave her glad tidings that in Jenna, she would be given two amazing belts in lieu of the belt that she taught and sacrificed for the sake of Allah.
Allah His Messenger sallallahu wasallam and Abu Bakar reached a cave on the mountain of thought and stayed there for three nights. And Abdullah bin Abu Bakar, who was at issue his brother, he helped them out. He would go there every night and stay there with them take food for them. And in the daytime just before fudger he would return home to America. He would keep them informed of any plots that were taking place in order for them to reach Medina safely. And Booker had hired the guide. And so with that guide, eventually they traveled all the way to Medina. So what we're witnessing here is that I shut the line ha is seeing her own brother, her own sister her entire family, work for the
sake of Allah and sacrifice for the sake of Allah in order to give safe passage to Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam to Medina.
She describes it in her own words. She said that Abdullah bin Abu Bakar her brother was an intelligent and sagacious youth and he used to stay with Rasul Allah Salallahu alaihe salam and Abu Bakar at the cave overnight, he used to leave them before daybreak so that in the morning he would be with coronation act as though he had spent the whole night in Mecca.
And he would keep them informed of any plots that were being made against them. When it became dark, she said he would go and inform them of it.
And then she describes the slave of aboubaker Ahmed bin for Hara the freed slave of aboubaker, who used to bring a sheep and some milk every day to abubaker and the prophets Allah Salaam in the cave, so there was always fresh milk for them at night. And there have been for Hara would then call the herd away when it was still dark before daybreak. And he did the same each night for three nights.
Allah His Messenger and abubaker had hired a man as a guide, she says, The Prophet sallallahu wasallam and aboubaker trusted him and gave him their two camels and took an oath from him to bring their camels to them to the cave of thought in the morning.
describes how Ahmed bin for Hara who was the freed slave of abubaker, used to bring a sheep every single night to the cave in order to provide milk for Rasulullah, sallAllahu, wasallam and abubaker. And then one day, he guided them all the way to Medina.
And then Abu Bakar had hired a guide, who took the prophets, Allah Salam and Abu Bakar to Medina, through a very unique word so that the Quran would not be able to detect them. You can see from this that I shattered the law on her she was really paying attention to the details of what was going on. And that's one of the features of the life of Asia or the law on her. You'll notice that due to her curiosity due to the fact that she was so attentive, we, the believers, get to hear all of the details about what happened in various incidents in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. In that way, I shared on the LAN who was a true blessing for the oma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi
wasallam. Without her there were so many details in the stories and in the life of the Prophet that we would not know about. She describes how her grandfather, Abu hanifa, who was blind at the time and was a disbeliever. He mocks them and he commented that a Booker had left them bereft of anything.
He was obviously worried that there was nothing left for them.
But a smell or the land, was a teenager at the time, took some stones and wrapped them in a cloth. And she gave them to her grandfather to feel. She said, this is what he has left us with. Her grandfather felt the cloth with the stones. And he said then he has left you with a lot. But in fact, he hadn't left them with any immediate access to money. At some point, Abuja hell even came to the door of it shut down her and asked to meet abubaker when asthma told him that she didn't know where he was, Abuja has slapped her in her face, causing her earring to fall off.
Just imagine a shattered Grandpa, the little girl witnessing all of this, and seeing her family suffering and striving in the path of love from such a young age. You can see that this would have impacted her immensely. And it begs the question,
what are we doing that our children are learning from us? What attitudes are they learning? are they learning to sacrifice and strive for their principles, or to acquiesce and compromise? What we do dear brothers and sisters is being witnessed by our children and it shapes the attitude of generations to come.
I pray that Allah Subhana Allah gives us the foresight and courage to be true role models to our children mean.
So abubaker and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam had already traveled to Medina, now it was anxious turn. After a few weeks the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent Zayed bin haritha and Abu raffia who was his freed slave, to bring the family of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam to Medina. They brought two camels with them and 500 Durham's aboubaker also sent two to three camels and Abdullah bin or a pit a lazy his Bedouin guide, and a letter to his son Abdullah commanding him to bring the family to Medina. They bought some more camels and they bought some more supplies, and they began their journey. Abdullah have been rated the guide collected abubaker his family oamaru
man, Asma Arusha and Abdullah Zayed and Abu raffia collected the prophets household Fatima oncall film so that will Zama and Osama bin Zayed and his mother Baraka whom a man who was the foster mother of Rasulullah so they all went on the Hydra together on their way to Medina they even bumped into tal haben Obaidullah who is one of the great Sahaba and he accompanied them on the journey. They'll have of course is one of the 10 promised paradise. He was also from bunu time the same clan as Aisha radula Anna, and actually he later married our issues, sister on call form and we will meet him later in the incident of the camel. On the way is his camel got nervous and started to run. Why
mildly, a mother began calling out while I've been well Russa which means Oh daughter or bride, and she used to call her bride because she was obviously the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. She called out to Alisha telling her to let go of the camels rains. But eventually the rains got caught in something on the ground. And so the camels brought to a halt. Everyone came and gathered round it shattered the land and took control of the camel.
Also on the way I show or Dylan has sister smart, was expecting. She had married a suburban mom just recently, and they stopped at Uber, where the famous Masjid is now where a smart or the Lionheart gave birth to the great Sahabi Abdullah bin Zubair. And this was a great moment for the Muslims because there had been a rumor spreading that the Muslims were cursed, and that they could have no more children. And no children have actually been born to the Muslims for some time. So when Abdullah bin Zubair was born, they held the baby up and chanted praises of Allah. He was taken eventually to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam who did the technique, he did the technique,
which is where you take a piece of date and soften it in your mouth and then rub it on the palate of the baby. So the first thing that entered the mouth of Abdullah bin Zubair was the blessitt saliva over a soul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And of course, Abdullah bin Zubair became one of the students of Ayesha eventually. And he is the nephew of Ayesha from whom she takes her cornea on Abdullah. So as you can see brothers and sisters, it was an eventful journey. It was an adventure. And eventually, our mother is shattered, Anna reached Medina safely with her family and with the family of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to begin a new life in Medina. When they arrived,
the masjid was just being built. In the next episode, we're going to learn about the building of the house of Ayesha de Landa. When you see the green dome in the masjid another week, you should realize that straight underneath that dome is the place where the house of eyeshadow delanda was and where Rasulullah sallallahu, wasallam, abubaker and Omar are buried. Next time we're going to learn about that very house and all of the incidents that happened after she began living with Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. We've come to the end of the episode in sha Allah. We'll see you next time. Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Subhana. Allah homo be handing a shadow Allah ilaha illa
