00:00:12--> 00:00:33

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah dear brothers and sisters as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. I want you to imagine you've been transported over 1000 years into the past to the year 58, after the hedger. An elderly lady is lying on her deathbed.

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

somebody knocks on her door, and her nephew enters and tells her that her visitor is Abdullah Ibn abass.

00:00:43--> 00:00:49

She indicates that she doesn't really want to meet him because, you know, she knows he's going to come in and praise her and

00:00:50--> 00:01:30

in the end, she allows him in and he stands behind the curtain and begins to speak. He says to her from the first day of creation, you have been singled out to be the mother of the believers, you were the most beloved wife of the Messenger of Allah. Because of you, Allah revealed verses relating to the Yama the dry ablution, the ayat of or and speak about the purity of your character, and these verses on are recited by the Muslims in the masajid day and night.

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

Who is this lady you might ask?

00:01:35--> 00:02:04

She is my brothers and sisters, the one whose hand applied perfume to the beard of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Her lap was the lap, in which Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took his last breath. She was the one whose saliva mixed with the blesseds saliva of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam before he passed away when she softened the sea work for him.

00:02:06--> 00:02:15

She was Ayesha are the Alanna wife of the messenger daughter of the most beloved man to the messenger sallallahu.

00:02:17--> 00:02:23

In this series, we're going to be looking at the life of our mother, our Isha or the Allah under

00:02:25--> 00:03:06

her life will elevate us It will remind us that women hold a special position in Islam. It will remind us that Allah Subhana Allah, Allah created us to be his worshipers to devote our lives to Him and to be women of substance, not women in slave to the consumer culture, obsessed with our bodies and beauty. We're going to find out about her childhood Hendra from Mecca to Medina, her marriage to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, her relationship with her siblings, the slander against her and how Allah subhanho wa Taala exonerated her from above the seven heavens.

00:03:07--> 00:03:50

We're going to also find out about her role as a student of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then beyond the life of the Prophet, her role in the caliphate of aboubaker, a father of Omar of Othman, then we're going to look at the events that transpired when earthman or the Allah one who was assassinated. Why did our mother Ayesha join a group of Sahaba to march to Iraq? Why does she regret that journey? What was the A bada the worship of our mother? Our Isha? Like, what kind of a teacher was she? What kind of an auntie was she?

00:03:51--> 00:04:11

Who was students? And what were some of her opinions? And how did she used to correct the other Sahaba we will be looking at all these aspects of her rich life so that we might learn from her and perhaps we too, may become beloved to Allah. Women of Jenna.

00:04:13--> 00:04:30

Did you know dear brothers and sisters that our Isha or the Allahu anhu was only 18 years old when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away. So the majority of her life she actually spent after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:04:31--> 00:05:00

she lived to the age of 64. So 46 years of her life was spent after the death of the Prophet. What was the special status of the mothers of the believers you might ask? Allah subhana wa Taala says about them in the Quran. And be you Oh lab will move money in I mean, unfussy him What is where do you who Omaha to home and sort of a heads up verse number six. Allah says the Prophet is more worthy of

00:05:00--> 00:05:04

The believers then themselves, and his wives are their mothers.

00:05:06--> 00:05:30

In what way were the mothers of the believers, our mothers, the scholars of Islam tell us that they were our mothers in tarbiyah. In nurturing and teaching, they have a special sanctity, where respect them, we will never speak ill of them. They had a certain nobility, no man can marry them after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:05:32--> 00:05:39

They also had special rules for them regarding hijab, which we will find out about insha Allah.

00:05:41--> 00:05:57

They are his annual bait the people of his household. They were blessed in that they would get double the reward for the deeds that they would do because they chose the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and a simple life

00:05:58--> 00:06:01

over the life of this dunya and it's glitter and glamour.

00:06:04--> 00:06:45

Some of the unique and special characteristics of eyeshadow or the allow on her are, first of all her superiority amongst women. Abu Salah Shari reported that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there were many men who achieved a state of perfection. And none were perfect amongst women, but Asya, the wife of Pharaoh, and Miriam, the daughter of Emraan. And then he went on to say, verily, the virtue of Arusha over other women is like the virtue of Fareed, a special dish over all other foods.

00:06:47--> 00:06:54

Mother Aisha or the Allahu anhu was given the glad tidings of being the prophets wife in Jana.

00:06:55--> 00:07:12

In a hadith in siouxland, autonomy, the gibreel the angel alayhis salam came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with our issues image on a green silk and cloth. And he said, verily, this is your wife in this world and in the hereafter.

00:07:14--> 00:07:44

She was also one of the few people upon whom the angel Gabriel sensor lamb to personally she narrates that once Allah His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh, ish, and that was his nickname for her. Oh, ish. This is gibreel greeting you. So she said, y Li his Salaam wa rahmatullah wa barakato. And she said to the Prophet, you see what I do not see. So panela

00:07:45--> 00:08:02

She is one of only four companions who narrated more than 1000, a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So she was a key person in the preservation of the Sunnah. She was the only wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who was a virgin when he married her.

00:08:04--> 00:08:21

She was the most beloved person to the heart of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and she was the daughter of the most beloved person to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. In fact, when he was asked, which of the people is dearest to you? He said, immediately Asha.

00:08:22--> 00:08:27

And then he was asked who amongst the men is dearest to you? And he said her father,

00:08:29--> 00:08:51

when Allah subhanaw taala revealed verses in the Quran commanding the prophet to give his wives the choice, the choice between this life and it's luxuries, or marriage to the prophet and living a simple life. The first person who the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to was Arusha.

00:08:52--> 00:09:17

He asked her, not to hasten and said she can go and consult with her parents. And she said, Do I need to consult my parents concerning this? Of course, I choose Allah and His messenger and the home of the hereafter. So she was the one who was given that choice first. And then the rest of the y's followed her example and said the same as she had said.

00:09:18--> 00:09:24

We mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away in her house in her lap.

00:09:26--> 00:09:47

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the two greatest people after the profits are the Booker and Omar. They're buried in her house. She's the only wife upon his lap. He would sometimes be resting or in his room he would be and revelation would come down while he was in that state.

00:09:48--> 00:09:54

Allah revealed verses of Quran from above the seven heavens exonerating her.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

People used to try to bring gifts to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu

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

wasallam on the day when they knew he would be in her house, because they knew that it was a special day and they wanted to draw closer to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:10:11--> 00:10:20

may Allah be pleased with all of the wives of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam And may Allah be pleased with our mother? Ayesha.

00:10:32--> 00:11:30

Welcome back. Brothers and sisters, our mother Ayesha radi Allahu anhu was born seven years before the hedgerow, which is about six years after the first revelation. In fact, Khadija Golan when she passed away, I chose just three years old. The full name of our mother Aisha was Aisha bint abubaker bin Abu hanifa bin I Amir Phnom Penh cab bin sad bin time, bin more raw bin cab bill Lu a ulquiorra Ashiya a Tamia so her family tree meets the family tree of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at Mora, who was their common ancestor, and then their family tree goes all the way back to your smile and then to Ibrahim alayhis salam. The name of our mother Ayesha means living prosperous. It

00:11:30--> 00:11:35

comes from the word Amish which means to live comfortably.

00:11:36--> 00:11:53

She also had some corneas. Her cornea was Amal momineen, of course and also on Abdullah. She asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for a cornea and he said take a cornea from your son Abdullah, meaning her nephew, Abdullah ebina Zubair.

00:11:54--> 00:12:35

She also had some titles. One of her titles was Siddiqa. The truthful one sadaqa built a sedate, right, the truthful one who was the daughter of the truthful one, she was known as more fucker, the one who's guided and inspired to success. She was also known as heavy but to rasulillah, the Beloved of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Once when oma or the Alon who was giving a stipend to each of the ways of the Prophet, he increased the stipend of Ayesha and he said, she was indeed happy but Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:12:36--> 00:12:41

She also had the title of a mobile, the one who had been exonerated.

00:12:42--> 00:12:57

Also at the yerba, the pure, she had some nicknames, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, called her Allahu mejorar, which literally means the little red one, which usually describes a woman who is very fair skinned.

00:12:58--> 00:13:03

Ayesha also had the nickname art ish, which is a shortened version of her name.

00:13:04--> 00:13:26

Her parents were Abu Bakar Siddique, whose real name was Abdullah ibn Abu hanifa. And her mother was a middle man who married Abu Bakar. After being widowed, she accepted Islam early on and made the hedgerows to Medina and she passed away later during Abu Bakar his life in Medina.

00:13:27--> 00:13:31

Mother Ayesha had three brothers and two sisters.

00:13:32--> 00:13:34

Her full brother was Abdurrahman

00:13:36--> 00:13:53

issues, elder brother and the Son of Man. The last of her siblings to become Muslim was of the man and the man went on to have a daughter called Umbra bent up the man who became Asia's key student.

00:13:55--> 00:14:16

A mother Ayesha had other siblings from the other wives of abubaker of the Allah who I know from abubaker his wife called Taylor bint Abdullah Isa. She had Abdullah and usma as siblings. Abdullah was Abdullah bin Abu Bakar, who helped the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during his hegira.

00:14:17--> 00:14:29

her eldest sister usma, was also known as a VAT on little cane because she had torn up her waist strap and tied food for Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam during the Hydra,

00:14:31--> 00:14:49

asthma smart married as well been aware of the great Sahabi and she had Abdullah as her son and also odawa men as well, who are both students of Ayesha. She would also lend Ayesha her onyx necklace. She had eight children, Mashallah

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

later on when Abu Bakar went to Medina, he married a smack bent or mace and he had a son Mohammed bin Abu Bakar

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

I want you to remember these names, because they're going to come up later on in the series and they're going to be very key characters and key players in the life of Ayesha or the allowing her.

00:15:16--> 00:15:29

Mohammed bin Abu Bakar had a son called awesome, who would again go on to be a key student of Asia, or the lower Manhattan was one of the seven fuqaha of Medina, the seven jurists of Medina.

00:15:31--> 00:15:46

Abu Bakar, his final wife, who he had in Medina, was Habiba. binz alhaja. And from her, he had a daughter on mckool form who was actually born after a buckers death.

00:15:48--> 00:16:20

A little bit more about aboubaker his wife, a smart bento mace, she was actually previously married to Jaffa even before like the great Sahabi and then when she was widowed, she married aboubaker acidic. Then after the death of Abu Bakar she married Ali in Abu Talib. So I showed his brother Mohammed bin abubaker, who was a smart and I will buckers son. He was actually brought up in the house of IE or the Allah who I know.

00:16:21--> 00:17:13

As for her sister, oma confirm she was later married to Paul have been obey the law. Tell her was a great companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we will meet him later on when I share a little deal on her goes on a journey to Iraq. Now let's talk about it shattered Gran has childhood. Her father, of course was a very important man, Abubakar Siddique, great companion, her family we're a family of nobility, the Quraysh from Bhanu time, and it was a wealthy family because Abu Bakar said he was a merchant. I showed her the Lana said about her parents. I never knew them, except as practices of the DNS so she never became aware of them as anything but Muslims. She was

00:17:13--> 00:17:19

born and grew up in a Muslim household. Her half brother and sister were already Muslims.

00:17:20--> 00:17:44

Some of the scholars say that there were four generations of Sahaba in Arusha, not the Alon has family. grandfather was a Sahabi, Abu hanifa. And then abubaker of course, her father was a Sahabi. She was from the Sahaba. And then, of course, her nephews also were from this harbor and live in a zoo bear for example.

00:17:46--> 00:18:14

Her father, of course, had a huge impact on her. He was the best man from the oma of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, the best man after all of the prophets, he never drank a drop of alcohol nor worshiped an idol. And he never had premarital relations even before Islam. He used to free slaves, he used to spend his wealth for the sake of Islam. No doubt, all of this had an immense impact on her life.

00:18:16--> 00:19:06

Brothers and sisters, during the course of this series, one of the things that you will notice is that our mother Ayesha, or the Aloha was a woman of substance. What do I mean by being a woman of substance? Well, we live in a time when women, we are either commoditized or we are pursued as consumers. The various pressures and industries that are constantly calling us to be enslaved to them are insidious. They're all around us. the fashion industry, the music industry, the beauty industry, social media influences, they all seeking to influence us as Muslim women. And that's why it's so important for us to know our own principles, to know Allah's commands and prohibitions and

00:19:06--> 00:19:57

to have a strong relationship with Allah. It's also essential that we learn about the great women the great role models of our past. Women like our mother, our Isha are the Allah Who, who was a matriarch for all of us, and she was a woman of substance. If the Muslim Alma is to be revived, we need women who can resist the temptation to be materialistic, to be fickle, and blow hot and cold. We need women of substance. In other words, women who think who have deep understanding and motivation for the life of the next world, who will do things for the pleasure of Allah, not for the fleeting pleasures of this life. When we study the life of our mother, our Asia or the Allah when

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

her it reminds us of what

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

Our mindset should be this life is not forever. It is short, and our job is to navigate this life carefully. We will make mistakes, tragedies and harm may befall us. May Allah protect all of us, as it be felt those before us. Even in her lifetime, I shall rather learn her saw great happiness. But she also experienced great pain. People slandered her, she went through the passing away of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam her husband when she was only 18, and she lived the rest of her life, unmarried. She never had children of her own. She experienced emotions that we all experience as human beings.

00:20:49--> 00:21:13

But what we can learn from her is, how did she respond when she experienced those experiences? What we learn from Ayesha della anha is that human beings are not perfect, life is tumultuous. If you live long enough, life will affect you. Right? You'll have ups and downs.

00:21:15--> 00:21:45

But how do we respond to those difficult times? How do we recover from our mistakes? How do we harness our personality? Our mother Ayesha had a strong personality. When we study her life, we can ask ourselves, how do you harness your personality? How do you try to turn your temperament or your inclination towards what is right? And how do you keep bringing yourself back to making the life hereafter your priority?

00:21:48--> 00:22:17

Far from suppressing her personality or issue or Dylan has harnessed her personality and used it for the sake of Allah. Join me next time when we will continue to study the life of our mother I shall read the line her and learn from her. Just come allow hiren or Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato subhanak Allahumma will be handing a shadow Allah, Allah, Allah and a stock Furukawa to be like
