Smith said mid
shot lots of our cola Smilla who loves salatu salam ala Rasulillah while he was a happy woman who Allah La maloom NEMA and found on fine Abby Vemma limp tena in the case of Mian would you would do our llama now to become an admin Diantha are helping Ayesha and I've seen that search bar where do I live SMA are have been added to the blue banner but there is a headache to now Hublin AMOLED, Ankara in accountant will herb will be strictly southern US suddenly hungry. While a lot of the time only 70 of all holy is acmella here for coming this you've been sitting for a long time. May Allah reward you may Allah reward everybody may Allah reward the organizers. There's a lot of hail came from this
conference. Actually, I don't know if some of you followed my Instagram account. There was a young girl, literally was Friday was today, Sunday, Friday, or I think Thursday night someone sent this video to my Instagram through messenger actually. And I just saw a young girl like okay, but I don't know why Allah made me open. I normally don't. Honestly, please forgive me. But I really don't have time for all that. But for somebody that Allah wanted me to check the messenger, and wanted me to see and he was a young girl. And I clicked it and guess what this girl was doing? It was here is why I'm saying this was last conference here. And of course, I don't remember what I said that somebody
made a clip of it. And the clip went all over. So this girl was doing exactly the clip.
It's amazing. And she was doing it the same way. Like you know, if I pause, she paused. Right. And then I even and I remember, yeah, you can see it. If you're on Instagram, you'll see it. But there is a reason why I'm sharing this. Because I remember as I was saying how much time it was about salah how much time was spent for Allah. And then I said how much time we spent on Instagram and on our social media and somebody I remember very well in front of me and I said in the kitchen and somebody laughed in front of me and I at that point, moment I said it's not funny. And I said it in a certain tone. This girl said exactly the same. It's not funny is anyway, her mother, this is what
I want to see. And the reason I said this because I was asked about six or eight months ago I was in upstate New York and board of a masjid with the Imam asked me this question.
If you are in the Dawa, and my beautiful sisters and mentors and teachers here on the left, they you know, you sometimes reach a point where you say this is getting nowhere.
From what you hear you don't see it, we see it, we hear it. So the Sheikh was asking me and he says the Torah Haifa, do you think what you are doing is bringing any fruit?
And I know why he was asking this. And I said, Well, now he or she I don't know. A lot knows. And he nobody's going to praise themselves. But I can tell you I every now and then I get an email, or I get something that gives me hope. And Allah send me this. And then I didn't know who's this woman. So I actually responded, which I rarely do that I responded on the messenger and says, Who's this girl?
And her mother responded. Now this is for all of you.
She said she's 11 years old. Where does she do? Australia? In a city? I don't know, where is this place? And she said she loves the videos. And she memorized them.
Now two things came to my mind first, who introduced her to these videos.
That's what I want you to know. This is an 11 years old. I doubt she has an Instagram account. And she looks after like nine.
So it is the mother. So here you are mothers. What do you watch? What do you see? It comes to your home and has an influence and you just heard all the beautiful stories. And then the encouragement. This is what really impressed me because who posted this? It's the mother. Because at the end the mother was communicating with me and I took out permission is like is it okay if we posted on online? And then then the team did this where they put mine and hers. I was talking she's talking so they you know this is? So the idea. What I'm trying to say is whatever you do in the house
negative or positive?
It has an impact on your children. So don't blame the school.
And I'm not saying the school has no impact but don't blame the school first. Don't blame the friends first. The thing that you need to always look internally
to yourself is what impact I had on my children, on my family, on the community and on the society. And that's what we have been learning since one o'clock. A good number of you probably don't know the names. You may have heard of, Amon, but I don't know how many of you and your name was Baraka.
Well, what an impact you had.
So what I want to end up with And subhanAllah I didn't choose to save ever I was hoping I will be assigned. No, save it.
Literally, I first I wanted to text to start a Jose and asked like, you know, give me your say, but I'd like to know that Allah choose for me. Honestly, I always like Allah to choose for me, because Allah has the best one who choose for you. And then she texted and says, No, say Vanessa Subhan Allah.
This is what I wanted.
The question all of you, before I even talk about
a seed. No, Sabir, who are you?
From all what you heard?
Who are you?
And number two, what impact what legacy? You're gonna leave after?
Who's going to talk about you and 100 years from now?
What's gonna remember your name?
Which conference is going to mention you?
True or False?
What do I need to do?
I have to do something
majority of people don't know don't do has to be very hard. It has to be very difficult against the flow.
And if you read if you listen to all these stories, what was the common between everybody? They were different.
They did something nobody else did. They said something nobody else said an outcome to see the newspaper. This is what you only this is why we do these conferences is just not only general information, you can type the name, baraka and you will get it on the internet. But that's not the goal. The goal is you 1020 3050 years from now, we all going to be gone.
What did I leave?
Some of these ladies didn't have children,
or their children died before them, like Satan or saber.
My wife What a legacy they left.
So this is the first thing every woman and I focus on the woman what legacy you're gonna leave behind you, and for the youth. What's your goal? I don't want to hear college name.
Honestly, and I don't want to hear I want to do this and I want to do this. I want to hear what legacy you're going to leave.
And what did you do for Islam?
What did you do for Islam?
That was very hard, very difficult and majority of people did not do it. And this is takes us to nusseibeh on what Amara as they call her. Who is she?
We don't even know her age. We don't know anything about her before she became a Muslim, very different from the others. Nobody knows
That's something for you to remember. Could nobody will remember you unless you do something different.
And that's why no one talked about her till she came to give allegiance to Rasul Allah is AUTOSAR.
So this is about 14 114. About 14 130 plus years Saraswati salatu salam was still in Makkah. She was from Medina. He was Ansari, as they call it. So she was born raised in Medina from Winona, Georgia. But nobody knows anything about Tara at that point.
And then Allah Swati salatu salam send the first ambassador in Islam, who was that?
You all should know the name.
There is only one.
The first ambassador in Islam was he who he was aura Suarez thought was sent him to Medina
know why the devil was sent to Yemen?
I heard it. Yes. Say no. Masaba No. Khomeini
was the first ambassador for the Swati salatu salam wanted to see if he will migrate to Medina. Would that be a good place? Planning?
Investigating researching searching so he did and say no sob Muhammad did amazing job.
What happened afterwards? You all know this. But I don't want to talk about the seat. I want to talk about points that should impact you and me as a woman.
74 people from Medina decided to come to Makkah and meter or Swati salatu Sinha Serbian for how many woman among them?
How many woman
only two. What's the ratio?
It doesn't matter the number it doesn't. What matters is what did you do?
So, Omar Amara and a smell, both of them.
They didn't jump, a lot of Swati sought to sit down. And I'm coming, and I have to do this.
You can be very powerful and impactful.
But in the right way.
You don't even have to raise your voice.
You will have to go and write and do the right thing. So what did they do? They wanted to do, and he just told us what he saw to Sarah. This is why after October 2, one,
she left him in Medina. She came with her husband, and two of her sons and her sister
came coming to Roswell, you Serratos Salam.
But they didn't go to him and says, I want to do it.
She said the husband of a smell Torah, Swati sought to sit down and he said, Your Rasul Allah, the woman wants to give you that legions like the man.
And what did he say?
You need to know this, because there's a whole column here is a
ruling, we're going to learn. What did he say?
What did he say?
You're close. But what did he say? He said, That's fine. Let them come and give their allegiance, but I will not shake their hands.
Because normally, how do you give allegiance to someone you put your hand on top of their hand? He said, I will not. Did they get offended?
Discrimination? Because I'm a woman. You don't my point.
Again, I'll say this every time I speak to them and don't fall in that trap. Focus on the goal.
They came because they want to make a statement. What was the statement that new Sabir did on that day?
That they the woman faith is as strong as the man faith. And whatever it will take to show this faith shall do it.
So she came, gave the allegiance to Roswaal risotto Sam went back to Medina. Nobody knows much. No.
To one, what do we know her? 100. Exactly. How many years?
At least five? Right? This five or six or after budder?
What's happened here? Woman always when they go for expeditions with a Roswaal risotto. So what do they do?
They usually in the back serve the fighters or, or? Or
take care of the wounded? And that's what you did.
Now if you learn the rest, you will say anybody else in this day? No, no, no.
I don't want to stain the buck. No.
I am as strong as them. I want to be in the front. Are you getting my point?
She didn't. She was in the back.
When did she come to the front?
And this is a lesson for all of you. Wait till Allah use you.
Don't jump to it.
She didn't go out to make a statement. And so history we'll talk about her another Swati salatu salam said this famous more than one statement about her. That's not her purpose. She went to serve Allah. She went to serve Allah the way usually woman serves Allah.
But Allah had another plan for her.
And what happened?
Come on. It's
so as long as the Muslims were,
what winning she wasn't about. Now what's happened? You all know the story. Now things turned around. And what's happened to the Muslim? The fighters, companions, what happened? They ran away.
And this is how it's described. And if you read you will find the same description.
Very few people they said less than 10
companions Sahaba ran away. Very few.
Less than 10 stayed shielding. Roswell risotto. Sara, who was it? One of them? Was she
and her son
She and her son, she didn't go for that. But when the opportunity comes in, to serve Allah to do something most don't do, she was there.
And what happened, she did not go out as a fighter. So she doesn't even have a shield. She'll run with only her sword and beer, nothing. And the Roswell is Auto Service behind her. The fighters were running, and the Roswell you saw to some looked at one, there is no name. And he had the shield. And he said, if you're not fighting, give me the shield. He gave him the shield, and he gave the shield to Satan receiver.
You know, what is this?
Again, when Allah wants to use you, he creates the opportunity for you. And he facilitated, and he facilitated, facilitated in a way, perfection.
Don't do it. Don't do it with yourself, meaning ask him to use you. But don't put orders to Allah. As I say this to myself. I wanted this way or that way.
I want to sort who you ought to be. You want me to serve you. As a speaker. I'm here. You want me to serve you as the person who cooked the food to serve the people who attend the conference on there.
You know what I'm saying? Don't pick and choose. This is the deen of Allah. He choose where he wants you
and where he's gonna use you.
And the result is the same.
So her son comes in. She had to both of them died.
But not in in your heart have even Abdullah. So Habib was running and he had a wound in his arm bleeding. And Allah Swati salatu salam told him tired and come to your mom. You need to feel this. It was a fiasco was a mess. They were losing and running. He comes in what is she doing now? Now this is the mother. This is her son. Now this is the fighter. Look how many hats she was wearing. Now she's the nurse. She pulled her son. She had around her tight. Some bands because she was going out for nursing. She take one band, tie her son wound bleeding and what does she say?
Go back and fight.
Look at me and you go back and fight. What did he tell her? It his site was set up. No one can do what you you just did your mama.
This is one of the statements he said about her.
No one can do that.
Your son and everybody has been killed in the mass bleeding. Anybody else will say you know he's bleeding go home. My baby.
Not Omaha Maura
not to save her. Allah knows you and me what would have done
and then she sees a warrior coming to Killara Swati salatu salam, she has nothing. She's not a fighter. But when you have the faith, when you believe you love Allah, when he puts you in the place what he wants you to defend on the air.
And then he comes in, they were all on horses. She was not riding. They were all
standing. And that man comes in and he miss her. Then turn and then she hits the horse and the horse help. And the mantra
and then she killed him.
that's why he said male male decommodification like Nana eco Matatini Omar Amara, we cannot do what you are doing.
That's a woman. One only.
And then at that point, she said told us what you saw to us. What did she say?
Pray for me and my family. In the middle of the battle.
Pray for me and my family that we are with you in Ghana.
And of course he played for
Did you see the point
in the middle of whatever the focus is, what is that?
Jana, where I am going? What do I want to do? It's not this life is the way I look. What I have, what is my child is going to focus is it accurate?
including me how I use my children because that's why she told her child go done. I took care of it. Go back
Subhanallah is this is done.
Do you think that the only landmark of assayed and you say that is because of her courage?
Then you don't know that? Well, the Sierra there's a verse in the Quran was revealed because of her
there's a different opinion about whether it's was almost selama or was no saber said no saber what was this verse?
Or what was what did she come and said she came to Australia saw two senses Yara sama everything in the Quran is for the men
now I want my rights what what rights she was looking for.
So Dr. Osama all the rewards goes to the man
the rewards GOES TO THE MAN What about us?
And then Allah revealed it's a sort of a hijab, which most of the inshallah you know, the verse in there misdemeanor are mostly math way more than me, Nina, almost me NAT or Connie Tina kanita saw the cleaner or saw the car or saw Bettina or saw the rod or ha Shana Akashi when we first saw the thing it was also the hot saw me in saw Emad what have you Lena food your home? What have you bought with that Karina Maha cathedra with that curate the Allahu de Haan mouthfeel, written by Diana Halima and this is one of the few verses where Allah divided the gender.
You are a Muslim, she or he a believer, she or he submitting to Allah, he or she or she and he, he started with he and she.
Thus when I asked for my rights,
that's what I want to be equal, if not in the front run.
It's not everything. As I said, No say you but the other thing her son Abdullah was the only Sahabi
who described the widow of Rasul Allah to say
what an honor all the Sahaba is her son described.
Third thing for her another hokum. So I want you to know, it's not about courage only. What she has, that we all need, specially this day and age. They are clean the serenity. The unshakable faith I call it, this is who she was, unshakable faith. I am a servant to Allah, whatever the Allah who put me soulless while they sought to sell came to visit her.
What was she doing?
She was fasting. He was not Elisa to sell. She served him food.
And he said, why you're not eating and receive online Amara so that I'm fasting Allah so Allah, what did he tell?
He said to her, the angels pray for the house, that the owner is fasting and he serves food to people.
What a faith practice in faith, courage,
or health was not the only one. She was involved in one of the most unique legions to Roswaal Sr, two cell. That's what they say if you read about her, they tell you she is one of those who Allah said I'm pleased with her.
Can you claim this? Can I claim this? How dare I am.
But this one is not a claim. It's true. It's a fact. Allah subhanaw taala certain sort of law called royalty, Allah who I mean, if you buy your own aka Titus show dollar for it my Matthew Kulu will be him for instead of Sakina tally, who was horrible on her tongue Kaiba let's translate. Allah said Allah is pleased.
And more meaning they're believers but who are they? Which one?
Not everybody this is specific. Those who gave you allegiance under the tree. She was the

Billa Holly Come on. I was reading this for us writing and preparing this i
took a pause and I said, Can I say look at all the Allahu animate me on myself?
Can I claim it?
Do I even have the the audacity to say it?
Of course she said and of course she can say it with full confidence. Why?
Because Allah said it.
Allah said it, her son. So now she's a mother. Her son, also risotto serum sent him to talk to Salem Al Qaeda will say you are the one who claimed prophethood.
And we'll say them I stood in front of him, her son, Habib, and he said, do you bear witness that rasool that Muhammad is also Allah? He said, I do. And he said, do you bear witness that I am a messenger? And he says, No, every time he asked him this question, the answer is no. He chopped one part of his body,
the hand and arm, every part till he died.
in the dilemma, in the Battle of Yamama. After the death of Roswaal is Otto Sinha. She was there fighting with her other son.
And she saw him dead.
And she said, the meaning of Al Hamdulillah that Allah made my heart in peace.
Because he was killed
Satan, Abu Bakr and say no model, the Giants, men, they used to go and visit her specifically.
You want you're right. You want to be identified. You want to be special.
It's not towards it's action.
It's action. And it's a hard one.
And somebody most people don't do it, but you will do it not to impress anyone other than Allah, not looking for any praise other than his praise. Not wanting anything of this dunya other than the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala
she died 13 year of hatred. They said that she died at the time of saying no one. No one talks about how she looks like
this is what I want to end.
No one said about her skin color, or how long her hair or what was her weight? Or how tall or what did she dress or where she bought.
But everyone talks about her courage, sacrifice, Faith certainty
