Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah. He woke up Ramadan arriba de La Nina stafa Susana CGT Rosario hortonville ambia. While early Hill Ischia was Harvey hill at the AMA blog.

00:00:16--> 00:00:18

The history of Islam is very beautiful.

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

And there are moments in Islamic history that will bring great joy to you. But then there are some moments in Islamic history that without doubt will bring great grief and sorrow.

00:00:32--> 00:01:10

We read the life of the Prophet that allamani will set him which is the centerpiece in spine of our history. And we find the most beautiful example there of a human being who was thankful to Allah in His good days, and was patient in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. When difficulties and calamity surrounded him, we find this example in his rightly guided successors will Boca seduced by the Alon Omar the alarm on earth mana de la one earlier the alarm one, these were companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who took the responsibility of governing and maintaining the affairs of the Muslim Ummah

00:01:11--> 00:01:17

in the most upright proper way, as taught to them by the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:01:18--> 00:01:24

out of the alpha, I'm one of the along one was stabbed and killed during Salah

00:01:25--> 00:02:05

he was praying slaw leading the companions and there was a Persian slave abou, he took his dagger out and he stabbed on one of the alarm on the oma was devastated. But we kept going, because I'm going to be a long one while lying on his deathbed, he gave advice to the, to his to his children, to his sons to the Sahaba around him, that this wasn't the end of the journey, the journey was to continue on. And he then elected a committee. And he said to them that the halifa, after me will be elected from this committee. And then unanimously from amongst them, they selected Othman and I found over the Alolan to be their leader, or from out of the along one was halifa for a period of

00:02:05--> 00:02:48

time in which he served the oma day and night with everything he had in him. And then at the end, there were a group of people who made some very rude, horrible false accusations against humanity along one, as a result of which they surrounded Madina munawwara and refuse to let off most of the Aloha and carry out his duties as a halifa with one of the allow one have the ability to end this rebellion immediately. But he knew that it would result in a bloodbath. And that bloodbath would occur in the city of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, it would involve some of the most senior and great companions on one side of the law one gives into the these crooks in these rebels,

00:02:48--> 00:03:26

which obviously is an insult to this position that he takes that he holds being a halifa. On the other side, he allows his rebels to do what they want kill people, that isn't acceptable either. So as long as they allow one very carefully, thoughtfully puts himself in that position, where he says to the companions, no one will kill anyone, and he agrees to be in house arrest. And it was during this period that these rebels one night one day stormed the house of God, Allah one, and killed him. At the death of our family along one, the companions unanimously appointed the next halifa, who was leaving, and we thought it would be a long one, I knew that the loved one is taking this head off,

00:03:27--> 00:03:43

in a very is taking the responsibility of Canada. In a very touchy environment, everything's a little delicate, because one of the greatest companions, the son in law of the province of allamani, was set up not once, but twice, because my mother in law one had very two daughters of the pups that allamani was sent him was just murdered. What happens now?

00:03:45--> 00:04:24

How do I deal with this? does it allow one take a quick move and grab the people arrest the people who killed off none of the allow one and punish them and settle the case? Or does he look for every, every, every element of this corruption through his army, and through the seats of, of leadership, and find those people one by one, and then after due diligence and a proper process, deal with the problem that he had. And out of that the loved one chose the second option, because he was wise. He knew that if he punished three people today because of the murder, another 100 would get away with it. And His goal was to find out what was going on and who was involved and let the tension and the

00:04:24--> 00:04:59

emotions come down in the Muslim ummah. So this wouldn't lead to some sort of an internal war. But as a result of this, there were a group of companions who disagreed with the value of your loved one and they wanted immediate retribution. They wanted revenge immediately. Amongst them was a companion by the name of Mao We are the alone one. He was a trusted, beloved Companion of the prophet of a loss at allamani was his sister was married to the Prophet that allamani was set him only have you been on the alarm on him. While we have your loved one was one of the Select companions that was appointed by the prophets of Allah while he was sitting

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

To be a scribe of Revelation, whenever a verse was revealed the prophets of Allah hemani was set them would call on a group of companions and they would come in, and they would write down these verses of the Quran as the prophets of Allah while he was sitting would dictate them. He was very intelligent, smart wise, although the law one appointed him in Sham to be a governor judge, a leader to the people, and that position of his one was maintained by Earth mana the Aloha North mana the allowance allowed him to maintain that position. of not Amalia, the last one was related to earthman. They were both from Romania. And he felt that this slow process that audio the law, one

00:05:34--> 00:05:49

was invoking. And this critical time was wrong. So here there was a difference of opinion. On one side, you have Maria de la one in Sham, who says that we need quick results. We want justice now.

00:05:50--> 00:05:56

And on the other hand, you have earlier the long one who says I'm willing to give justice, but only after I'm sure that I'm doing it right.

00:05:57--> 00:06:36

Things were a little rough. What on either the last one did in order to ensure that there would never be bloodshed and Madina munawwara and that the companions could live in peace and those visiting the city can worship in peace and visit the Prophet of Allah and peace, and there would be no noise and disturbance and warfare, no clashing of swords. In the city. The Prophet was lying in your last piece beyond that city, Mirella, protect and preserve that city. What he did was, he relocated his hub of khilafah, where he would manage the affairs of the Muslims from Medina and takes it to a place called Kufa in Iraq. I live with your loved one settled in Kufa, and this is

00:06:36--> 00:06:49

where he's managing his calepa from Allah subhanho wa Taala guided Alia de la one through some of the most difficult days Muslims have seen. And as Alia the loved one was also made a martyr and when he passed away,

00:06:51--> 00:06:59

the candidate for khilafah that was accepted by a majority of the Muslims was Hasson or the alarm one, the older son of God alone.

00:07:00--> 00:07:38

However, in Sham, there was a companion by the name of Medallia, who also made claim to the philosopher. So you have two people making a claim to the philosopher, you have Hassan or the law one, and while we are the alone one, bear in mind, they are both companions of the Prophet sallallahu. It was sudden, in their own right, their senior from one perspective has set the alarm one is the rightful halifa This is the position of Anderson nojima because of his seniority, how knowledgeable he was, how close he was to the companions, how righteous and pious he was. On the other hand, you had more obviously a lot one who claimed that he was rightful to Haleakala because

00:07:38--> 00:08:02

he had so much strength and he had such dominance, and he knew that he was the one that would be able to maintain peace in the oma during his cut off. And from one perspective, while the other the last one was also right, because there is 19 slash 20 years of fit alpha. There was no internal warfare and the oma because he was able to maintain peace and control over the Ummah during his canasa. Now, there was a

00:08:03--> 00:08:42

disagreement between the two. Ultimately, as prophesized by the Messenger of Allah and Allah while he was still in the process that allow it was said on one day, during his life, pointed out his young child, who was barely seven, eight years old, has another low on his grandson and said to him, one day this son of mine, will serve peace to mankind, and has another long one, remembering that moment, he said to Malia, that I agree to step down from the position of khilafah uncertain conditions, you can take it. This shows us how humble has some of the Alolan was, how wise he was, how far sighted he was. One of the conditions he said to me, how are we out of the law one was,

00:08:44--> 00:09:26

if you die, and I am still alive than the halifa will come to me, and there are many other conditions that were put in place. At the end of this agreement. hassanal de la Juan decided to leave Kufa and return back to his birth city and Madina munawwara. His brother Hussein, who was also with him in Kufa joined him and they migrated back to Medina Paseo de la one was not pleased with the decision that his older brother took, but he accepted it because it was his older brother and hustler. The last one was very knowledgeable and pious. When they move back to Madina, munawwara it was at the end of the philosophy, or towards the middle of the philosophy of Mojave or the last one,

00:09:27--> 00:09:59

that while we are the last one did at the advice of Malaya, Robin Sharma are the alarm on he announced that his knife, his deputy, would be his son, yes, he'd been Mahalia labia rhodiola one is still alive and he announced that after I die, the next Khalifa will be eaten Malia by this point has some of your loved one has passed away so he's not violating his contract or agreement. And he writes a letter to the different governors to the Muslim land telling the telling these governors that take allegiance from those that are under you, the leaders of your cities.

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

By extension their followers as well, that after I die, the next Khalifa will be Izzy bewafa. Now one thing I want to make very clear yazeed is not a companion. He is from the generation that follows. And we don't even call him or people with such deviants as our leaders or people that who we look up to who we take inspiration from, because just because you live in a generation does not make you from the righteous people from that generation. Now, yes, even Mahalia, his,

00:10:35--> 00:11:14

his his deputies had spread through the land, and they were all taking beta on his behalf that one day when lava passes away, he's either become the halifa. Now there were some companions who made it very clear that they were not interested in giving any baotou yazeed because they did not view him to be a legitimate leader. He wasn't qualified. They had concerns regarding his attitude towards religion and what kind of person he was. Amongst these people. Were the lights of the Sun abubaker acidic rhodiola one of the Hammamet of you back amongst the people who were very bold and made it clear that they were not give anybody out to yazeed and not accept him as a future leader of theirs

00:11:15--> 00:11:54

was a son of the great companion with your loved one a beloved Mama, the son of our bus with your loved one I'm loving a bus, the son of a woman of the law, one of the lemons obeyed the job the son of john foto de la one of the love in Java and the son of Alabama with algebra to law one are saying Have you thought it? Now before I move forward with the narrative, I want to take a few steps back and build a brief biography of who this great companion has saved me Have you thought about your loved one was a saint for the loved one was the grandson of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He was born of the womb of the daughter of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Fatima de la

00:11:54--> 00:12:04

mana, Fatima the alarm on her as a messenger of Allah referred to her as the leader of all the women of paradise. a saint of the law of one's father,

00:12:05--> 00:12:28

who also happened to be the cousin of the prophets of Allah Han He will send him his name was Ali bit avatar. Earlier the last one was one of the first people to accept Islam. He grew up in the house of the Prophet of Allah when he was seven. He stood by the side of the prophets of Allah when he was sent him in all major battles. He was a companion that was later on selected to be the halifa as we discussed, right now.

00:12:29--> 00:13:05

Now in the fourth year of higit, have fought them out of the Allahu Ana and Hosanna the last one are blessed with a young, handsome, beautiful child, who was named by the prophets of Allah while he was seen, which means small beauty because he was so tiny and so small and he was so handsome and beautiful. This young man grew up in the mosque of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam playing in the lab of the Prophet that alone while he was sitting, holding on to the beard of the Prophet that a lot of money was spent on climbing on the shoulders of the Prophet that a lot of money was sitting in the lap of the purpose of aloha names. The prophets of Allah Allah was set him was one

00:13:05--> 00:13:39

day delivering his sermon, and two young children walk into the mosque and the prophets of Allah wa it was sudden saw them stumbling and falling, and he couldn't continue giving his lecture because it was every time it was as if every time they fell, his heart fell down. The promise of alarm audio system, love them so dearly. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam halted the hotel and he went to these young children. He picked them up, he came to the front of the gathering sat down with each child sitting on his lap, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that indeed your children are tests from Allah subhana wa Tada. The Companions they say that we saw the Prophet

00:13:39--> 00:14:04

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam coming into the streets of Medina. And Husayn would be playing with his friends and the prophets of Allah, Allah wa Salaam would run after him to chase him. We saw the prophets that Allahu Allah was set on holding Hussein to his chest, kissing him on the forehead, kissing him on the lips, embracing him and saying, Oh Allah, I love this Hussein. So yeah, Allah I want you to love this Hussein too. And in wondering why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:14:05--> 00:14:46

Oh Allah, verily love the one who loves her saying, Yeah, Allah. Anyone who loves her saying, show love to those two as well. It show love to that person as well. And wondering why the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent has narrowed Tibet or suburb and z, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took Hassan and Hussein both of his grandsons in his arms and said, Oh Allah, verily, I love these two. So you should love them too. This Hadith is narrated by Mahatma Gandhi. Similarly, in the hadith of Timothy, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I am from Hussein, and Hussein is from me. Allah loves the one who loves her saying,

00:14:47--> 00:15:00

the love of the Prophet had for his grandchildren was so great, and what to do if did maybe the prophets of Allah Allah was said on Monday held his grandson Hussein on his shoulders, like grandfathers do, and he was walking around and once

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

Javi saw him and he said to Cena de la one. Wow. Look how beautiful the animal is that you're writing. It's the Prophet of Allah. I mean, think about it for a moment. When Allah decided to honor the Prophet he gives the Prophet the budoff to write on. But look at the honor of Hussein that he's writing on the shoulders of the Prophet. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam laughed and said he responded back to this companion, that he's not the lucky one. I'm the lucky one because on my shoulders is my beautiful handsome grandson, a saint with your loved one.

00:15:31--> 00:15:58

As narrative I will say the solidity of the loved one. Didn't we didn't have to lie Alinea we decided that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said regarding his grandsons, say either Shabaab and agenda, that they are both the leaders of the youth of Paradise and wondering why are the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I oppose those who oppose you. And I am peaceful with those who are peaceful with you narrated by ma'am Didn't we didn't have to lie again.

00:16:00--> 00:16:35

So, same with your loved one was someone very close to the Prophet, he narrates some narrations from the Prophet. In one narration. he narrates the Prophet that my grandfather said a lot of it was seldom said it is from the beauty of a faith of a person that they leave that which does not concern them. So the grandson of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also narrated, same as the last one was known for being very pious and righteous. He would perform Hajj very regularly. When he was in Kufa those years he didn't but while he was not in Kufa, Pacino, the other one was known to have performed hides, not only perform Hydra, but he would perform Hajj on foot, he would come and walk

00:16:35--> 00:17:21

all the way from wherever he was, to come and perform as such. Now coming back to where we are, I say that the last one is now in Medina. While we are the last one has requested that these that everyone take beta, and accept easy to be the future leader, and amongst the people that rejected once Hussein of the alarm on. However, while I've you know, the last one was a righteous companion, and he did not take any step towards any of these companions. There was no assault nor imprisonment nor torture, no army sent their way, no shackles, no nothing. He was respectful to them because they were all companions. When lobby under the law, one was passing away, in roughly the year 60, a God

00:17:21--> 00:17:37

and his son museum was going to be the next Khalifa where are we at the Loma advised is even said to him, oh, yes, eat, be mindful of the son of Fatima, referring to her sanity alone, because the oma loves him.

00:17:38--> 00:17:39

Be respectful to his family

00:17:41--> 00:17:42

and be lenient with him.

00:17:43--> 00:18:13

You see, it becomes halifa. One of the first things he does is that he writes a letter to all of his governors. And he instructs them to force those who refuse to accept Him as their leader to now give beta and that they must accept yazeed as their new leader. He was not wise like his father. He did not have much respect for the companions. He was a non alcoholic. He was a womanizer.

00:18:15--> 00:18:17

He was the type of person regarding whom

00:18:19--> 00:18:48

a man suit sutra Allahu Allah writes in a study on Hanukkah, that he has he indulged in sinful behavior. He married women along with their mothers and their daughters and their sisters. He drank alcohol, and he did not perform Salaam. So naturally, the companions of the Prophet that allamani was said the other great companions wouldn't we're not interested in any way at all to give him a out. His either writes a letter to the governor of Medina, whose name was Walid when Aqua

00:18:49--> 00:19:09

and tells him force the beta out of Hasina the alarm one. Now the governor sits with her Cena de la Juan, and he says to her saying that it's time for you to get back to your seat. baochen means an allegiance, political allegiance and allegiance of obedience, that you are now his subject. He is now your leader, you must give back to him.

00:19:11--> 00:19:13

Say no to your loved one in his heart had no intention to give back.

00:19:15--> 00:19:28

However, in order to be careful that he will not be imprisoned or tortured. He said to this governor that give me some time and let me think about this. Let me give it some thought. And then I can tell you how I feel about it.

00:19:30--> 00:19:31

The governor gave him some time.

00:19:33--> 00:19:34

In the meantime,

00:19:36--> 00:19:46

Hussein of the law, one went home. He informed his family members and within a matter of a few hours, they packed their bags leave Medina head straight to Makkah.

00:19:48--> 00:20:00

When he arrives in Makkah, his dear friend of London's away with your loved one is a resident there, mocha mocha Rama is free of the influence of yazeed. And it's a place where I was saying that the long one can live in

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

Pease

00:20:01--> 00:20:16

now Paseo de la Juan is in mocha mocha Roma. In mocha mocha am at this point you have great companions and given our bus with your loved one at this point, if not of your loved one is there and there are many other great companions that are also residing in mocha mocha at this time.

00:20:18--> 00:20:41

For Cena, the loved one when he arrived in Mecca, the people in Kufa who felt a void after hassle of your loved one left and left the affairs of the Khalifa 20 years ago to Mao era, the alarm one, they saw this and they noticed that Hussein refused to give br to yazeed. Therefore there was some hope that maybe they can prop up or say that their loved one and make him

00:20:42--> 00:20:43

their halifa.

00:20:44--> 00:20:50

So they started writing letters to her saying oh the alarm that come to Kufa and join us.

00:20:51--> 00:21:27

Because they know the law one originally didn't give much attention. But the letters started increasing. And they kept coming and kept coming and they started to write promising him that oh Hussein, there is no amount over us we have no one that rules over us. Therefore if you come through you, Allah will guide us Allah will the United States. No man, no man but she has a governor here who was a non competitive the opposite allamani he was sent him and they said that he is our governor, but we don't gather together to preach a law behind them. This is our level of rebellion that we don't even prefer to behind him. We don't pray join the Friday hook by behind him. So if you

00:21:27--> 00:21:28

come,

00:21:29--> 00:21:33

we will then join you. We will pray read behind you, we will pray Juma behind you.

00:21:35--> 00:22:18

And like this, they began to seek the attention of sanity alone. It is stated that a point came that almost every few days there were letters coming 50 odd letters 60 of letters, hundreds of letters were coming to her saying it alone. Now Paseo de la Hwan started giving this issue some more serious consideration in particular, after the passing of Milan in the 60 year after his 60th year after Angela, that's when he sent it along one started giving this more consideration, that maybe there is something here. Maybe we should look into Kufa. However the other great companion living in Mecca was of the Levin's obeyed. He said to her saying, forget gufa stay here, you and I can govern and

00:22:18--> 00:22:34

establish a rightful khilafah from the people who are truthful people, there are loyal people and there are people these are really people that are related to us. And above all of that your grandfather was granted number one in the city. And then he explained to him that the people of

00:22:35--> 00:23:11

Kufa and Iraq could not be trusted, because they had a history of not following through on their promises. These are people that were promised and secret things when when it would come to the crunch they would abandon for us like the poet, even our best of the law, one of love and oh my god alone, one will say the hooded the allowing all of these people said the same thing that don't fall for their trap. Don't go to Kufa of the loving spirit of the law. One went even further and said if you want to be somewhere and establish a following, go to Yemen go south, it's away from Sham and away from Iraq and these people, you will have a following there and you'll be safe and secure. We

00:23:11--> 00:23:44

will be on your way. And no one will be able to come to you without going through us first because mica is north of Yemen. However, saying that your loved one was a man of solid resolve. He was someone that was very thoughtful when making a decision and when he would make a decision for either acenta fatawa kanaloa that he would rely on Allah subhanho wa Taala and say no to your loved one. Now begin to make his intention towards Kufa. But he wasn't hasty he wasn't quick. The first step he took was he sent his cousin, Muslim in appeal

00:23:45--> 00:24:26

to Kufa and he said to him, you will go there, scout the area, check the temperature, see how people are, what they feel like whether they're sincere, and then right back to me. Muslim Anopheles starts his journey with his two young sons. And he arrives in Kufa. When he arrives in Kufa, he starts speaking to people. People start meeting him. And in a very short period of time 12,000 representatives come and give a a at his hands. That's a massive number. And each of these people represent their families, their tribes. So in total, there was now close to 40,000 people that were under the veil of Muslim monarchy,

00:24:27--> 00:24:31

which as you can imagine, is is a massive following.

00:24:33--> 00:24:49

Muslim an appeal as his following increased, and since he was a representative saint of the law one and sanity law one student in the opposition of yazeed. Some people living in Kufa wrote letters to yazeed, saying that you are losing control over the city is losing control.

00:24:50--> 00:25:00

The governor of Kufa was a man by the name of Norman Bashir, who was a companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was

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

As rough and as harsh

00:25:03--> 00:25:14

as yazeed wanted him to be, he was very accommodating very easy. You know, he, he made it clear that he wasn't intending to kill anyone because these people had not

00:25:15--> 00:25:39

presented any threat to him. So now I'm Edwin Rashid in not taking the strongest approach against Muslim an athlete and this massive following of his as a result of that is he became very angry and he started consulting the people immediately around him. There was one of his very close servants and someone who was a feat slave is freed slave of his that said to yazeed that what you should do is appoint

00:25:40--> 00:25:53

a general by the name of albedo lab in Ziad over Kufa this man is brutal he's lethal doesn't care he governs with his sword unsheathed This is the sort of man you need to deal with Muslim and arcane and how saying

00:25:54--> 00:26:00

obey the law easy is even more obvious loves the idea and he appoints obey the loving Ziad over

00:26:01--> 00:26:04

one morning away the loved ones yet enters into Kufa.

00:26:05--> 00:26:38

His face is covered with a corner of his turban, no one can see who he is. He has a small group of 13 to 12 people around him. When he enters into Kufa. The people of Kufa think that it's Hussein it alone because they've never seen him before. And they come out and celebration with a warm welcoming and everyone's singing and chanting and excited. And behind that veil was a way to Levin's he had the new governor. And he realized by seeing such a massive warm welcome that the situation in Kufa was bad.

00:26:39--> 00:26:56

The Romanians were losing their foothold is he was not desirable there and unless something drastic was done, this city would give allegiance to proceed with your loved one in person, and then things would be Code Red Alert. So at this point, what a way to love and Ziad does,

00:26:58--> 00:27:39

he finds his palace, he settles in and he starts doing some ground homework. Who are the people that have given allegiance to Muslim monarchy? Which tribes are there from Where do they live? He starts doing his homework and all these people then he orders his men to go and arrest jofra Muslim monarchy and as they go to arrest Muslim and appeal where they thought he was hiding out when they showed up their Muslim Inaki wasn't there. And instead of Muslim and happy they found the person that was hosting Muslim Inaki and someone very close to him his name was Hani Bananarama. They arrested Hani and they took him in Muslim and after he realized that this was a power move by him

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

elevens yet, so in return, what he did was

00:27:44--> 00:27:54

he gathered the people that took allegiance at his hands and said, We will march to the forts of our way the weapons yet and we will demand the release of honey binotto. They agreed.

00:27:55--> 00:28:01

The day started off with Muslim monopolies marching with 4000 people 4000 heavy.

00:28:02--> 00:28:06

They stood outside the walls and they begin to protest. One by one.

00:28:08--> 00:28:45

The people who are advisors have weighed 11, Ziad came to these protesters and they picked them out and said, we'll bribe you, we'll give you some money go back home. They went to their family members and said Go and call your son. There's no need for 4000 of them. The message is conveyed through 1000 you don't need 4000 Do you really want your son to die? Do you really want your husband to die? And they play this very powerful emotional game where they were able to pull people out of that army, and it went from 4000 followers to midday being 500 followers to 300 followers to 70 followers. At the end of the night when Muslim and Nikita was leading HSL da he started off with 30

00:28:45--> 00:29:23

followers. He ended with 10 followers. And as the night ended, was slim enough he now had a total of zero followers. At that point, he realized that his imprisonment was definite. And his death was sure Muslim enough he immediately went into hiding. He went to a lady's door he knocked on her door she opened the door. He said to her, I'm thirsty, do you have anything to give to this man to drink? She called them inside and gave him something to drink. When she inquired about him. She found out that he was from the family of the puffs that a lot of tsunamis from underneath. She became excited that wow we have someone from the profits family in our home. When her son came home in the evening,

00:29:23--> 00:29:43

she informed him that we have someone from the Prophet's family in our house. This son of hers Unfortunately, he ratted out and Muslim and happy. He sent a letter to grade 11 Ziad saying that I know where Muslim in appeal is that you're looking for? What kind of prize can you offer? And unfortunately once again in our history, for a matter of a few dimes and a few denims

00:29:44--> 00:29:46

an innocent life was sold out.

00:29:48--> 00:29:55

The army of Aveda Levin's yet came they captured a Muslim in our team and it was in the 61st year of digital

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

on the ninth of the hedger

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

That Muslim monarchy and Hannibal are both decapitated and they were both beheaded

00:30:08--> 00:30:34

on the other side in mcomber, karma Paseo de la one is getting ready to march. He's getting ready to leave Makkah. He has no idea what has happened in Kufa that has cousin and has been beheaded and all of his supporters have have ran away. They've abandoned the cause. They've abandoned their commitment. On the eighth of the hedges one day before Muslim and appeal is beheaded. center the alarm one is getting ready to leave.

00:30:36--> 00:30:48

Many companions realize that this was a bad move. And because he was the grandson of the pups that a lot of sudden they came one by one and appealed to him. I would love it I'm going to be alone came up the loving Ibis who was very senior and old at the time, and also related to

00:30:49--> 00:30:54

saying it alone when he came, and they had a very lengthy, long conversation.

00:30:56--> 00:31:39

I would love it our bus with your loved one. He asked him, Matt anthocyanin, what are you planning to do? He said it alone one responded in new mountain mosquito that I've gathered my belongings and I'm ready to walk either in one or two days. For Karla who Abbas Abbas adeola one pleaded to him and he said, for any or evil Kabila haemostatic I asked you the protection of a law please don't go Please don't go to Kufa those people cannot be trusted. Apparently Rama Kala at the cyrilla common kata kata Amira whom was about to be louder whom wonderful other home that are you planning to go to a people who have no loyalty at all. They've killed their leader before you're going to go and show

00:31:39--> 00:31:41

allegiance to these people, you're going to go inside with them.

00:31:42--> 00:31:45

He says because the truth is, when you do go to them.

00:31:47--> 00:32:26

In the home in America, it'll hurt. Well, I am an alpaca and you have a rocker that they are inviting you to war. Because as soon as you step foot in Kufa, even if they do get back to you, all of these armies will come in your direction. And you won't last there. They will deceive you, when the time of war comes those people today that are sending letters to you and saying they will protect you and preserve you and stand around you. They will you Holly fuka, Luca, they will abandon you. They will stand against you. They will deceive you, they will cheat you. For Carlos Hussein, in the US the federal law under Michael Cohen, he said I'm doing as taharah I'm seeking help with a

00:32:26--> 00:32:52

lot. And let's see where this goes. Finally, if not boss comes to him again. And second time appeals that don't go I'm saying Please don't go. I'm saying that your loved one makes it very clear that I've made my intention. And I will be going it's at that point that if not most of your loved one said to him, that if you are adamant that you are surely going to go this is what you've made your mind that that you're going to go then I have one request to you, which is don't take your family with you.

00:32:54--> 00:33:33

Because I fear that your family will be killed in you will be killed in front of your family for law in need. law if and total come up with a lot of man when he saw one or two who young Runa LA I fear that you will be killed like offline of your loved one was killed what his wife and children were looking at him. What kind of life is that? But her saying that the loved one wanted to march with his family to show the people of Kufa his commitment that I'm not coming solo while leaving my family behind kind of one foot in one foot out of the door. I'm coming with my family. And not only did he say no to your loved one come with his family. He came with a family of Muslim menarche. Many

00:33:33--> 00:33:41

of his supporters were with him. This was a massive group of people who are marching towards Kufa together with the intention of settling there

00:33:43--> 00:33:53

was a really long one, even though he was advised against because he made his intention and he was a man of resolve. He left mcomber karma on the eighth of the Niger.

00:33:55--> 00:34:07

He left my karma karma on the eighth of the ledger. And this is the opinion of him, I'm not going to lie, and he starts marching towards gophone while he's on the way to Kufa

00:34:09--> 00:34:13

even zardes, army kind of interception

00:34:14--> 00:34:18

and they make it very clear to him that he will not be allowed to go any more forward.

00:34:19--> 00:34:33

And that's when reality hits her sanity alone. And he begins to understand that the situation isn't as he had assumed. He very soon learns that honey and Muslim and appian have both been beheaded. And all of that support and goofiness gone.

00:34:36--> 00:34:39

I say under the law, one begins to have a discussion with a herd of minions

00:34:40--> 00:34:50

who was set by even Ziad names and her minions he was a first gen sent with 1000 soldiers to stop her saying that he alone and they block off the pathway to go further. You're not going there anymore.

00:34:51--> 00:34:55

Paseo de la one then turns his direction

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

and he ends up going towards a place knowing

00:35:00--> 00:35:41

Karbala This is where he settles down and when your loved one arrives there he asked the people What's the name of this place? They said Karbala and he'll say no, the old one broke that word down to two and said kind of blah blah blah, which means difficulty and affliction. So that's what we're going to get from this place. This place is not a good place to save your loved one. He wasn't able to go back to Kufa go to go back to Medina or go to Kufa because his army had surrounded him they had stopped him. And on the second of them Harlem in the year 61, after he arrives in, in Karbala, with 45 horsemen, and 100 foot soldiers, as narrated by Mr. Tony Rahmatullah YALI. From the second

00:35:41--> 00:35:45

of moharram, until the seventh of May, for five days.

00:35:46--> 00:35:52

Even Ziad had ordered an increase of troops to surround Paseo de la one, it went from

00:35:55--> 00:36:03

1000 soldiers, to many 1000s of soldiers that have come and surrounded this small family and small group of people.

00:36:05--> 00:36:17

Now, who would have been easy was someone who was soft with her sanity alone, and the reason was because ultimately, he was the grandson of the Prophet solomani.

00:36:18--> 00:36:39

So it was he had noticed this in what he did was, he made it very clear that he would that he, unless photo would step his game up. The ruler would be changed the government, the general would be changed. And that's exactly what he did. He changed the general from the first governor to

00:36:42--> 00:37:18

sorry, he changed the general from a whole Binya CDs from Albania to Oman have been sad, and it's almost been sad now comes in Oman have been sad. He now turns the heat up a little bit more. And he makes it more difficult on the people of sanity alone when he starts preventing Paseo de la Juan and his family members from water. He dispatches 500 people that create a wall and a barrier between the family of Hussein and the water as narrative about human poverty Rahmatullah YALI.

00:37:21--> 00:38:02

Same with your loved one. He tried his best to play with these people and ask them that open up the pathway let us go and drink our water. Why would you stop us? And he says to these people, that how do you expect to ask my grandfather for water on the day of judgment? When here today you aren't giving us water. But these people were adamant that they will not open the path. However, like Hodor on understood the respect and honor of Hasina de la one, there's actually a narration quoted that there was a conversation between one of the generals and Husayn and that person said to her saying that don't make me and she'd my sword against you and say No, the other one said, may your mother

00:38:02--> 00:38:25

lose you. You're thinking of unsheathing your sword against the blood of the Prophet. So at that point, that man said that anyone else in the world said to me, may your mother lose you I would have said the same back to them. But how can I say that to you when your mother was fought them out of the Aloha, the daughter of the Prophet that a lot of these people were doing what they were told, but their hearts were conflicted. They didn't feel right. They were reluctant of going into war.

00:38:26--> 00:38:45

Striking someone like saying that they alone. So when is even Wow, we noticed that two of his generals were not effective way to love and Ziad when he noticed that two of his generals were not affected. He then appointed the third general and it was this man that actually

00:38:46--> 00:38:51

really caused things to become escalated and caused a lot of problems. His name is

00:38:53--> 00:38:55

IGNOU Ville josha

00:38:57--> 00:39:02

IGNOU Ville Joshi, or also commonly known as shimmer, shimmer,

00:39:04--> 00:39:11

shimmer arrives in front of Paseo de la one and makes it very clear that I only have one intention.

00:39:12--> 00:39:49

Either you give baotou is eat Humble yourself. Give me out to Aveda Levin, Ziad, then you go to Sham and give me out to eat or I behead you. There's no other question. There's nothing else on the table. On the other hand, saying that the last one was proposing three possibilities. He had three petitions. He said number one, why don't you let me go back to Medina and Mecca and I live there peacefully. Number two, let me go and talk with these guys either face to face and Shawn will figure this out like two adults. Or number three, if you don't want me to go to Medina because you're you're fearful that I'll establish Okinawa and you don't want me to go to eat because you're

00:39:49--> 00:39:59

intimidated for some reason. Then let me just join one of the armies that are doing jihad in some part of the world, some isolated part of the world. I'll go there live my life as a soldier, with my family and we'll give our life for the cause of Allah.

00:40:00--> 00:40:42

But our way to login, Ziad had very clearly instructed szymon that either he gets on his knees or you take his head, one of two things will happen nothing else. At this point, days have passed by. And the house intent had been surrounded, no water was going in or out. The weather was so hot, people began to become sick. These were kids, these were women. And and when it became very clear that there was no pathway left, but for the battlefield itself, on the 10th of Muharram, Paseo de la Juan was resting in his tent with his family members. And it was at this point that the soldiers began to come towards this tent, his sisters, and it came to him and woke him up and said, Hussein,

00:40:43--> 00:40:49

the time has come. I'll say no, the law of one's family got up. And as they were getting ready to go

00:40:51--> 00:41:10

to law one, you know, in wondering why before the battle even started, he said to Muslim innocuous family, why don't you guys leave and go back to Makkah, this is not your battle. They don't want you they want me they've already killed your father. But Muslim and afterwards family said that what are we going to say when we go back to people that we abandoned the grandson of the Prophet, with what face are we going to send in front of them? How will we live life after that?

00:41:11--> 00:41:38

And one of those soldiers were coming towards the tent. Saturday alone woke up his children woke up his family members. And each of them took their armor and they walked out into the battlefield, one by one starting from arguing about whose limbs were chopped into pieces, whose body was covered in blood, a man who was punctured and hit and stabbed and bruised again and again. And one by one all of these people that came out into the battlefield.

00:41:40--> 00:42:07

Allah subhanho wa Taala attest to this family and Hosanna Viola one was making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala Yeah, Allah, it is in you who we trust. Yeah, Allah in this difficult moment. You are our hope. In this time of distress you Allah, you are the hope that we have, you know a lot. You are the one who provides provisions to us in all times of our life. He's making dua to Allah subhana wa tada

00:42:10--> 00:42:35

has entered the law one then came out to the people and he called out to the people. And he said to them in a very eloquent way, that trace back my lineage and consider where I come from. Then look at yourselves, consider consider whether it is right for you to kill me and desiccate my body, desecrate my body, am I not the son of the daughter of the Messenger of Allah set? allamani he was sent him.

00:42:37--> 00:43:16

Am I not the nephew? Was my uncle not hums out of your loved one, say you the Shahada. He says what's Java are the one who flies in paradise with two wings, not my uncle. Did you not know that the prophets of Allah while he was sent him said regarding me and my brother that we are the leaders of the youth agenda. And at this point, there were some terms that were some things that were said between both parties. There were some harsh words that were set against saying that your loved one. And the amazing thing is every time one of these scums said an ill thing against her saying oh the last one, he would make dua to Allah, that vow of Allah would be accepted instantly. For example,

00:43:17--> 00:43:54

there was a person by the name of our beloved Hosea. He came to Cosima the last one. And he said to Hussein or the last one that do you expect Hellfire meaning after we're done killing you? Don't you think you're gonna go to the fire of hell? I'm saying with your loved one said no. I'm advancing to a merciful Allah. And an intercessor who has listened to meaning the messenger of alone has no their loved one then said Oh, a lot, drive him into the fire. And instantly that man's horse toppled him. He fell down his next step and this man died right on the spot. This narration is narrated by half of the McCarthy era in his albida when you hire,

00:43:56--> 00:44:24

center, their loved ones 32 horsemen fought, and they fought and fought until every one of them one by one was martyred. Even an infant. His name was only an Ocelot. He was also not spared and he was killed as well. Despite this battle, Pacino de la one did not forget his responsibility in that battle of Karbala, Cena de la wants to pray to salon time, he still continued to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:44:26--> 00:44:59

He, he he stood by the side of all of his companions and fought with them until the narration saved when the final moments came for him to die when all of the other doors have closed and it was clear that Jose de la one or two martyred he stepped out of the battlefield and came into his tent one last time. His Son, Ali, even Hussein, who was sick at the time, one of the few men who did not fight in that battle because of his illness. He went to him he embraced him he made to offer him I live in Houston is also known as mom's in Aberdeen. He then went to a sister and embraced her

00:45:00--> 00:45:43

He went to his family members and brace them. And then the last one ultimately came out into the battlefield for the last time the enemy surround him but no one had the courage to strike his body. How could they strike the body that was once embraced by the messengers that of the holiday was that the prophets of Allah Hi, my name is Sam helden said that he is my flower. This man is my heart. I love him, Oh Allah, love the one who loves him. How could a stick or a sore touch that body and they stood at a distance surrounding him not knowing what to do? And it was at this point that shimmer shouted that How dare you give refuge to the sinner this ill foul man attack him.

00:45:44--> 00:45:51

The first person to lay hand against Hussein of the alarm one was a man by the name of zurabishvili.

00:45:53--> 00:45:55

And he attacked Cena the alarm one.

00:45:57--> 00:46:16

And then after that, one by one, Sinan ns phenomena Nephi attacked him and stabbed him with a spear. And they begin to poke him and slash him and cut him and thrust their swords in him. One by one until her sanity alarm one was inflicted with

00:46:17--> 00:46:19

33 stab wounds and 34 blows.

00:46:20--> 00:46:26

He breathed his last department's role, leaving for us an example.

00:46:27--> 00:46:41

It was a Friday on the 10th of Muharram. That whole scene of the Alolan became a martyr. And not just a martyr, an example for us all for what it means to live with honor.

00:46:42--> 00:47:18

What to say about the long one was martyred. his age at the time was 56 years, five months and five days. The year 61 hitting his head was beheaded was taken off from his body along with the heads of the others who are in his army. And they were first sent to Aveda lab and Ziad and then later on to yazeed bin malviya. In Shanghai. When he was presented with the head of Cena de la one, he began to poke it with his cane, begin to poke those lips. What does that let's let me

00:47:19--> 00:47:47

a companion who was there, he began to cry out and say, take your cane away from that mouth because by Allah I saw the Messenger of Allah kissing those lips with his very own lips. This diva is quoted by somebody along with ally Ali, the list of the people who are martyred in that battle Islam. And there are many companions. Many of the family members many of the top your own, who lost their lives standing side by side with Hussein or the Alon.

00:47:48--> 00:47:52

There are many narrations quoted, for example,

00:47:53--> 00:47:55

it is narrated by

00:47:56--> 00:48:08

mom suited Allahu Allah and his daddy hahaha that it was on the day of the martyrdom of Hussein or the last one that there was a solar eclipse. Similarly, Imam suti Rahmatullah. YALI writes in his diary,

00:48:10--> 00:48:44

that on the day he was martyred, fresh blood was found under every stone in beighton muck this many Allah subhanaw taala was leaving signs behind for everyone. Remember, did we get on with Alaia linear rates at Selma? She says that I came to Selma the alarm on her and she was crying and I asked her, why are you crying? She said, I just saw a dream. And the Prophet said aloud, he was that it was in my dream. And his beard was covered in soil. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam just told me that he had just finished witnessing the martyrdom of his grandson out of the lawn.

00:48:45--> 00:48:51

So when we reflect back at the story of Hosea de la one, there are some very important lessons for us to reflect over.

00:48:52--> 00:49:35

Yes, it's one that's sad and grievious, and carries a lot of pain for us all. But the first thing we need to reflect over is how saner the last one was a matter of principle, how you believed in something, you know, it's much more valuable for a person to die for something they believe in, than to live while not believing in anything at all, not being controlled of your life, not holding principle, where nothing is meaningful to you. Say no to your loved one. There was a mindset that he had, yes, he different from other companions, but what he thought he was doing was right. And then ultimately, he was courageous. He was bold. He wasn't willing to let the world dictate to him the

00:49:35--> 00:49:53

terms of his life. Rather, he chose his pathway in life, from what he had seen in the life of the Messenger of Allah, in the life of his father, other great companions. And I reflect over the story of Cena and by the way, there are so many reflections But there's one thing I want to say as a close,

00:49:54--> 00:50:00

that after her saying that the loved one died that people of Kufa could never forgive themself. They always would

00:50:00--> 00:50:12

beat themselves they would cry. They weren't you know more that Oh, Hussein Oh saying we could have seen how we could have saved saying but we didn't save him, each of these people, each of these people,

00:50:14--> 00:50:17

but I reflect over us and I asked myself and ask everyone

00:50:18--> 00:50:32

that what about the world around us that is being slaughtered and butchered and is in pain? What about the Muslims in Syria and Palestine? Are Indian brothers The Forgotten humans? What about our brothers that are starving and sisters that are starving in Yemen?

00:50:33--> 00:51:14

Just like the people of Kufa are we to sitting by the sideline watching people die, and talking about how bad we feel because many of us soldiers, they refuse to engage saying that they felt bad, but they weren't willing to do anything. All in all, a man an innocent man was killed. A man who, who wanted peace, who did not who care for the oma. He stood against evil he was killed because the people that supported him weren't willing to stand up with their own spine. They couldn't grow a spine. So as a Muslim community, where are we is posting on social media about people dying and two pictures about Rohingya Muslims enough? Is it okay to feel and to sit on the sidelines watch people

00:51:14--> 00:51:28

die? Or is there more to this story for us? Because there are so many are way to live in zyada, New Zealand Mojave as alive today, so many of them and they will stop at nothing. All they want is dominance and control and wealth.

00:51:29--> 00:52:06

But with every obey the love and Zia, they will be a Hossain there will be the family members of Jose and that will stand by aside even though there are fewer number but they will give their life for the right cause. The question is where do we stand? So enough with emotions enough with feelings enough for thoughts? Let's take the story of saying that your loved one on this 10th of Muharram and turn it into something meaningful turning it turn it into action. How about we reach out to those that are needed today and do something do something small but do something it's a million times better than doing nothing? Find an orphan online and send send food for them find a hungry person,

00:52:06--> 00:52:46

send a food pack for them. If you see someone's cold send a blanket for them. You see someone unplowed send garments for them. But don't sit on the sideline quiet. Because the story of her Santa's the last one teaches us his success, a great deal of honor for him, but ashamed for the oma that stood at the sidelines and did nothing knowing that the blood of the Prophet Allah was being shed in Karbala, the prophets blood. It wasn't the veins of her saying that the alarm on and it was flowing and Karbala and no one was there to do anything. Now law somehow there protect us and preserve us. Let this month of Muharram be a month of reflection. Let this day the 10th of Muharram

00:52:46--> 00:53:25

be a day that we reflect that we think we connect with our history and ask ourselves Where did we go wrong? What did we do, right? Because that's the beauty of our history. There's so many lessons for us within it. We pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala showers has mercy upon her saying that the last one, May Allah give us true love for Hosanna the last one. Don't be shy to say you love the family of the Prophet. Don't be shy to shed a tear in their remembrance. Don't be shy to read on their lives. Just because a group of people have claimed ownership over the family of the profit doesn't mean you have to give up your right as as similar Gemma as Sunni Muslims and as Muslims, whoever we

00:53:25--> 00:54:02

are, wherever we are, whatever denomination we come from, if we have claimed to the Prophet we have claimed to his family. We love them very dearly. And just because we love them, we will remember them we will study their lives we will remember that we will make dua for them. And we ask Allah to shower His endless mercy upon the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made the lessons of Kabbalah be embedded in us. When we learn our example from brave men and women who gave their life and our history who stood for the truth. May Allah subhana wa tada protect us preserve us except from us. Or said Allah when I say that I'm Mohammed ceremony como la vaca.
