When the prophets that Allahu Allah He was Saddam was young, approximately around the age of six, his beloved and dear mother, Amina departed from this world. This was a very heavy incident in the Prophet's life, considering that he was born without a father, his father passed away before the birth of a sort of loss of low honor he was in and then after his birth, maybe Sinhala holiday was set on what's was sent off to the Bedouin lands with Halima sadiya. For what the scholars estimate was around four years. So the actual time the profit audience that Otto Saddam spent with his beloved and dear mother, Amina, was around two years, but a relationship is a relationship. The bond

00:00:48 --> 00:00:50

between a mother and a child

00:00:51 --> 00:01:00

is so special, even if the time they've spent together is brief. And I mean, it takes her beloved son to Madina, Munawwara

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

on the way back from Medina, is when she felt ill,

00:01:06 --> 00:01:16

and she passed away, the death of his mother was very heavy on him. We can't even begin to imagine how difficult this must have been.

00:01:17 --> 00:01:43

And some of the scholars actually had this discussion. What was the reason what was the benefit behind the passing of Rasulullah sallallahu. It was parents while he was still young. And one of the interesting things they say is that it was to prepare the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to rely purely on Allah azza wa jal, and to not be too dependent on any one human being.

00:01:45 --> 00:01:46

Life is full of tragedies.

00:01:47 --> 00:02:05

Life is full of realities, that today you're with someone and tomorrow they leave, being taught profound and powerful lessons, through pain through difficulty, through actual real trauma

00:02:06 --> 00:02:07

isn't easy.

00:02:08 --> 00:02:22

But without experiencing that difficulty yourself. There are some lessons that are just beyond your reach, go and talk to someone who was married, and then had a child and lost their child.

00:02:23 --> 00:02:46

Go and talk to someone who's carried their own father to the graveyard. Talk to someone who's experienced a real loss in their business. And those people when they speak, the lesson they've learned through their calamity is truly special. It's unique, because it's not an experience they've read up. It's an experience they've lived.

00:02:47 --> 00:03:22

At every moment when they feel that pain. They have to confine deeper in Allah subhana wa Tada. And what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was destined to do the greatest cinema that was in front of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, of spreading Islam to the corners of the world and standing in the battlefield, in better or her than all the other great expeditions was impossible, unless from a very young age, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was taught this lesson of relying less on those that are around you.

00:03:23 --> 00:03:42

And relying more on Allah azza wa jal go and talk to an orphan and they'll tell you, there are lonely nights, there are nights where you just don't know what's going to happen next, but reliance on Allah subhanaw taala for that orphan, becomes their natural nourishment.

00:03:43 --> 00:04:03

This is how I satisfy myself. This is how I feed myself, the pain that was sort of loss of Allah while he was sort of endured at the passing of his mother. It was with him throughout his life. It's not that he didn't have empathy. It's not that he didn't have sympathy. Years passed by decades later, he's passing by his mother's grave with the companions and he begins to cry.

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

Because this is where he was as a child.

00:04:07 --> 00:04:31

And where he stood as he buried his mother, the pain was real. But the lesson in that pain, the lesson in that tragedy was one that prepared for sort of loss of allow it was set him for the great future that was ahead of him. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to learn from these stories, and give us strength in our moments of weakness. Saramonic more how to live Arcata
