Bismillah hamdulillah hamdu Lillahi wa Kapha salmonella Bernardino Stouffer

00:10:42--> 00:10:48

also Sanada seguro cerebrocortical anbiya wa ala Ischia was her

00:10:49--> 00:10:49


00:10:52--> 00:10:59

Today we turn to the story of a very special and dear companion of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam.

00:11:01--> 00:11:02

His story is a little different because

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

unlike some of the other names that we've covered in our previous sessions, he isn't one of the early to accept Islam.

00:11:12--> 00:11:19

He's not one of those that accepted Islam, before migration, or even right after migration.

00:11:20--> 00:11:26

He wasn't by the side of a sort of Lhasa Allahu Ana, he was salam in the great expeditions and battles above that and

00:11:27--> 00:11:39

neither was he with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Hunt duck in the Battle of the trenches. Rather, he actually fought against Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in all of those battles.

00:11:41--> 00:11:47

He was viewed among the Arab to be the most intelligent.

00:11:48--> 00:11:50

His intelligence was unrivaled.

00:11:51--> 00:12:00

He was a man of deep thought, and someone that could study circumstances and very carefully predict what would come next.

00:12:01--> 00:12:23

When the Quraysh were confused on a matter, they would turn to Him, they would look towards him, they would gather together to discuss their issues on how to manage their affairs. And while they would get their opinions from the people that were in presence, I'm gonna bring to us probably Allah one was one whose opinion was given much attention.

00:12:25--> 00:12:26


00:12:27--> 00:12:32

he began to realize that in the struggle between the Muslims and the Quraysh, the people of Makkah,

00:12:33--> 00:12:36

the Muslims were slowly gaining the upper hand.

00:12:39--> 00:12:56

In the earlier days of Islam, everyone was one the Muslims live in the city of NACA NACA was run by this group called the Quraysh. Now the Muslims have left and gone to Medina, the hope was the Quraysh would come in and just swipe them out. But they were unable to do so.

00:12:57--> 00:13:17

In one case, they lost the battle. The second case in Ohio, they almost won that battle, they probably gain victory from one perspective over the Muslims. And then in the Battle of the trenches, they were unable to do anything because it was a stalemate, and Muslims can actually gain victory there by avoiding battle, a full blown battle altogether.

00:13:19--> 00:13:30

And then there was a treaty signed between the Muslims and the Americans. And a part of that treaty, the Muslims would be allowed to enter into mocha mocha Rama for three days to perform their Amara.

00:13:33--> 00:14:15

When everyone saw these Muslims coming into my karma, karma, and the Quraysh, had now signed a treaty. And these were the peoples that were their adversaries, these are the people they went to war with. These are the people they lost their leaders to. And now these people have so much strength and so much will so much power, that the Quraysh can do nothing, they had to make an agreement with them. These Muslims walked around Mocha, mocha Rama, where they were previously tortured freely, to perform their pilgrimage. This left a very heavy sign and an impact on the on the finish. I'm not going to ask began to re evaluate things. That what's going on here, I need to

00:14:15--> 00:14:16

think about this.

00:14:17--> 00:14:30

What he saw was the Muslims came into my como karma for pilgrimage. And he made an assessment that if they've come here for their pilgrimage, that means the Quraysh allowed them because the police understood they were not capable of stopping them.

00:14:32--> 00:14:44

If the coalition was capable of stopping them, they would have put an army in front of them and never allowed them to step foot inside Makkah. They agreed to it on some political document because they knew that these people, they can come if they want.

00:14:45--> 00:14:48

Which means I'm going to ask what are the hola Juan

00:14:49--> 00:14:53

came to the conclusion that today they come for their programmers tomorrow they're going to come and conquer mocha.

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

It's just a matter of time. And he was right. Not too long after the American cobalt

00:15:00--> 00:15:20

The Muslims conquered mcomber karma and when they conquered Makkah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made it very clear to all the Muslims, we will avoid battle. No one will die there will be no bloodshed in Mecca This is a holy city, a sanctuary so they use this very genius tactic and they conquer but prior to the conquest of Makkah

00:15:22--> 00:15:25

I'm gonna be honest with the Allah one set with his companions

00:15:27--> 00:15:32

Imam Muhammad Muhammad Allahu Allah and narrates the wire in his Muslim very long beautiful narration

00:15:36--> 00:15:53

GEMA to the German Quraysh can we are on a McCarney West mountain a mini he gathered some people together who gave up who gave attention to what he had to say. And they respected him. For too long Tala Munna will lie in nila, Amara Muhammad in Yeah, Alan Omura, Leuven, Kabira.

00:15:55--> 00:16:07

That I'm telling you that the Prophet Muhammad, this Muhammad and his matter is not going to decrease, it's only going to increase and they are going to overcome this entire region. They're going to take over everything. I have a plan.

00:16:08--> 00:16:12

The plan is that his army could attack at any point.

00:16:13--> 00:16:15

Well we need to do is leave mucca

00:16:16--> 00:16:23

he's only talking to a select group of people. Where will we go? We will cross over into Abyssinia.

00:16:24--> 00:16:51

There is a king there, I know him, I've interacted with him in the past. He respects me. We'll go out there and we'll wait out this whole feud between the Quran and the Muslims. If the Quraysh when we are their honorable leaders will come back home. And if the Muslims win, then I have no desire to live in a city where a prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has dominance. I'd rather live in Abyssinia. I abandoned my land. I abandoned that whole area. I'm done with it.

00:16:52--> 00:17:35

They said sounds like a good idea. Let's do it. So they had their secret of planet now in plane. They gathered a bunch of gifts gifts that were desirable to the Abyssinians they made their way there when they arrived in Abyssinia. I'm gonna be honest with you Allah Han says For Allah He Inala in the who is honorable uma Yetta Bama Ryu? What kind of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called the Baba who elated when I arrived in Abyssinia to meet with this king of Abyssinia and the Joshi, who was named once, when I arrived there in front of me, I saw this other guy. I'm Ben omega. I'm gonna be Romania was a companion of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and he was

00:17:35--> 00:17:40

actually sent to Abyssinia as an ambassador for a conversation.

00:17:41--> 00:17:43

I'm gonna have an OS, he began to think

00:17:44--> 00:18:02

that you know what, this guy's right here, he's alone he has no group with Him. If we were to get a hold of him and kill him, we would gain rank in the corporation, the Quraysh would view us in a very favorable manner that This man killed an ambassador Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:18:04--> 00:18:12

this was a plan I'm going to somehow get a hold of this guy Killam gain favor with the Quraysh and this is going to help me out in the long run.

00:18:13--> 00:18:19

For the hull to Allah He a and Joshi Ahmed have been asked as I entered into the palace of majestic he

00:18:21--> 00:18:41

was subjected to Allah who come to us now i prostrated in front of him as a normally what he was a king when you entered upon a king you would prostrate again, not an Islam. He's not a Muslim, yet. These are pre Islamic traditions in Islam. We don't bow for anyone other than Allah. It's not possible that a human that are Muslim bows in front of anyone other than Allah.

00:18:43--> 00:18:46

That you actually saw him and said marhaba and be civility

00:18:47--> 00:19:14

Glad Tidings welcoming to my dear friend come on in is you're bringing the gifts. Of course I did. I brought some gifts for you, but condemned to either heap algebra who was the who he loved that gifts are these are amazing. Thank you so much. So I'm going to ask them whispered in his ear, he said, dear King, that guy who just slept your court right now. He is the ambassador of someone who I don't like if you grant me permission, I would like to go and kill that guy.

00:19:16--> 00:19:26

Well, to me he, the actor, the actor, find the hook of Osama bin Ashraf in our hearing because in the past he has been a part of wars in which our leaders were killed let me go and kill him.

00:19:28--> 00:19:42

Ahmed Ahmed says when I said this to the Joshi when I asked him to give me that Ambassador so I can kill him. But how they even Joshi, you to my mother Yoda who forgot about me? Unfair who verbatim Don to Anna who called Kasara

00:19:43--> 00:19:50

that ninja she got so angry that he struck him he hit him so hard that he thought he broke his nose

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

and in that moment, follow some follow in shortcut Lee allow Lulu the hull to see how far I can mean if the Earth were to rip Oh,

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

I would have ran into it Farrakhan a fulfillment home because I was terrified of the anger and the look of Najafi of that moment. I would have ran away to any corner of the world if I could.

00:20:12--> 00:20:17

And then I said to him, I can adjust you that I didn't realize my statement would upset you.

00:20:18--> 00:20:30

Natasha responded back. Are you asking me to hand over to you, the ambassador of one who Gibreel Allah Islam gives revelation to

00:20:32--> 00:20:36

the same Gibreel that came to Musa alayhis salam ala de carne de Musa

00:20:37--> 00:20:53

Qala hammer or you have Malik Kinetico hammer said, You believe that he is a prophet. We've only viewed him as an enemy we've only viewed him as an adversary. Muhammad was one of us we thought wars against him Do you actually believe that He is a messenger?

00:20:56--> 00:20:57


00:20:58--> 00:21:13

he said way hockey I'm an attorney. What about who Amata you're my buddy Listen to me. Stop all this arrogance, the stubbornness follow me, obey me and become one of His followers.

00:21:14--> 00:21:34

For Allah He in the who Allah Huck, while I have harana Allah Mahalo for who command the hara Musa Allah? I wonder where god he will overcome anyone that stands in front of him because he receives revelation and He is God's true messenger. Just as Moses overcame frown Pharaoh tomorrow you all will fall.

00:21:36--> 00:21:37

I'm gonna have been asked when he heard this.

00:21:39--> 00:21:49

He said to Najafi that if you are a Muslim, then why don't you extend your hand I will give allegiance to you. In the meantime, I will be Muslim before I even make it to the Prophet Muhammad said a lot

00:21:52--> 00:21:56

of us have a Yahoo about Yahoo. Islam. He accepted Islam.

00:21:57--> 00:22:04

I'm gonna be honest with you Allah one is now a Muslim, but he hasn't met the Prophet Muhammad yet said Allah when he was Saddam, he's gonna take that journey on shortly.

00:22:08--> 00:22:12

I'm gonna have an asset. I came back to my group of people and they said, Hey, how did it go? Did you kill the guy?

00:22:14--> 00:22:30

He said, No, that didn't work out. Welcome holla or II I'm kinda Lee Walker them to us hobby. Islam. I didn't tell them that I became Muslim. I just kept it quiet and just made an excuse. And we left there.

00:22:32--> 00:22:43

I might have been asking made an intention that now it's time for me to go and confront the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and accept Islam at his hands again, like I want to do the shahada at his hands.

00:22:44--> 00:23:05

So he began to head towards Medina. And on his way there he's at one stop spending the night resting up a little bit. And Khalid bin Walid are the Allah one who was also not a Muslim and becomes one of the greatest generals in Islamic history. Inshallah, one day we will cover his story in great detail. Khalid bin Walid of the Allah want interception?

00:23:06--> 00:23:08

He asked, How did what are you doing? Where are you off to?

00:23:10--> 00:23:14

So how did when when either the Allah one he asked him Aina Illa.

00:23:16--> 00:23:24

About Solomon, oh, how did Where are you going? So to that he said, Well, law he law is the common man's.

00:23:25--> 00:23:27

The path has become clear.

00:23:28--> 00:23:32

We've got to stop beating around the bush. Reality has become apparent

00:23:34--> 00:23:38

in the Rajala than a billion. The man is truly a prophet

00:23:39--> 00:23:43

of the Hubble Allah He was slim. I am going to become a Muslim.

00:23:45--> 00:23:56

I'm going to ask for the Allah who was shocked that his childhood friend had the thought that he had at the exact same time and both of them were headed to the same destination and the chances of them crossing paths.

00:23:57--> 00:24:00

He says to him, buddy, you aren't alone. We're doing this together.

00:24:01--> 00:24:04

These were the men that fought against the Muslims in the Battle of God.

00:24:06--> 00:24:08

They were in charge of the cavalry.

00:24:09--> 00:24:14

And today they were marching together to Madina Munawwara when they arrived in Medina,

00:24:16--> 00:24:27

Khalid bin Walid or the Allah Juan's brother Woody, Woody, he approached Khalid and said to him, buddy, hurry up, everyone in the masjid is waiting for you. The news of your arrival spread like fire.

00:24:29--> 00:24:31

Khalid Nolita, Viola Juan says him,

00:24:32--> 00:24:36

I'm gonna be nice, and the third from them was ultimatum Natalka.

00:24:38--> 00:24:45

They approached the budget together and when they entered, everyone in the gathering was smiling at them, including Rasulullah sallallahu. It was

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

and in one narration, sort of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam referred to the scene as aromaticum Maccha to be a flabby akebia mocha mocha Rama gives you the

00:25:00--> 00:25:16

estimates people like bad as you know liver flabby has a piece of it. But I'm not is to throw Ratko Maccha to be a flood the idea that Makka Mukalla is giving you it's best today everything changes. The three of them sit down in front of us who have lost that Allah Juana he was sent up.

00:25:18--> 00:25:21

I'm gonna be honest with you, Allah Juan. He says in his words,

00:25:23--> 00:25:27

that I sat in front of the Prophet sallallahu ala he was an and I extended my hand.

00:25:29--> 00:25:33

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took his hand, right into mine.

00:25:34--> 00:25:49

And in that moment, I tugged a little I pulled it along with that handshake, a little firmer than normally it would be. The Prophet peace be upon him was a very intelligent man. So in that moment, he knew something was going on. He asked, I'm gonna What are you doing, buddy? What's going on here?

00:25:51--> 00:25:57

He said, I'll become Muslim. I started to era surah Allah but I have a condition I will only accept Islam under condition.

00:25:59--> 00:26:37

And this is the beauty of amateur Manassa the Allahu on story. He's intelligent. He's smart. He knows that when he becomes Muslim and walks around in the streets of Medina, everyone's gonna be staring at him. This man is a criminal, he killed our people in the battlefield. This man waged war against us this man marched towards the Prophet peace be upon him with intent of bringing harm to him, how could we ever forgive him? He knew that the day he became Muslim, he wouldn't be demonized and marginalized by people. Unless he sorted out one affair. Like a person who walks into community after you know committing a crime, everyone looks at this person as a criminal convict, ex convict.

00:26:38--> 00:27:07

But it's Tom is not like that Islam is about forgiveness. Islam is about walking away from your wrongs. If you are sincere in walking forward. It's not gives you a chance to start again. You can start again whenever you want to, as long as you're sincere. And you're committed to being a better version of yourself that you leave the sin that you're engaged in, that you have regret over what you did, and you're willing to commit to do whatever is in your capacity to never go back there again.

00:27:09--> 00:27:17

I'm going to ask you the alarm, what is holding the prophets hand and he says, I have a condition the Prophet audience about this. And I said, Well, have you started?

00:27:18--> 00:27:19

What's your condition?

00:27:20--> 00:27:43

Now this in itself shows the wisdom of the Prophet because if anyone was accepting Islam, and they said, I accept Islam on condition, most of us would say, no conditions, except Islam unconditionally, otherwise out the door. But the prophet was a smart person wise, gentle, loving, kind, compassionate. He said to us, what's your condition? Tell me, let me hear it.

00:27:45--> 00:27:48

I'm the hola Juan says,

00:27:50--> 00:27:54

I desire for Allah to forgive all of my sins. I've committed many wrongs.

00:27:56--> 00:28:06

I did bad things. I hurt people. I marched against you a Messenger of Allah, I have so much regret and remorse in my heart. I need Allah to forgive me.

00:28:08--> 00:28:12

And this is the, like the pinnacle of his life.

00:28:13--> 00:28:28

That he did wrong, but that wrong didn't define him. It didn't make him into he was what made him into the great Sahabi was this moment. He wanted to walk away from it all. And that's what makes a believer special that a believer is honest.

00:28:29--> 00:28:43

That you're real, and you're willing to be real with yourself. That this is the these are my flaws in life. This is where I mess up. You're not stubborn and arrogant about it. Because you can be a Muslim with that stubbornness and that arrogance.

00:28:44--> 00:28:58

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says to him, I'm I didn't until Islam and you had the MoMA con a couple of who? Well had you you had the mama Kanaka who? Well here's your otter. Howdy Monica, Anna Kubla. Amor.

00:29:00--> 00:29:04

Don't you know that when you become Muslim, your slate is wiped clean.

00:29:06--> 00:29:07

You start all over again.

00:29:08--> 00:29:19

I'm gonna be honest with you, Allah Juan, in that moment, accepts Islam and gives his br to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He says

00:29:21--> 00:29:27

that there were very few people that had the closeness to the SUTA loss and Allahu Allah He was certain that we had

00:29:28--> 00:29:36

we referring to him and hunted the prophets of Allah who it was wa sallam with Cape Cod had been the leader the hola Juan and Ahmed have been also the Allah one by his side.

00:29:38--> 00:29:45

He would take advice from them, it would involve them in conversation. He was worried about being outcasted after becoming a muslim.

00:29:46--> 00:29:55

Rather, he experienced something very different. What he found was that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loved him so much.

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

He treated him special. He was just new in

00:30:00--> 00:30:37

into Islam. He was still early in his faith, but the Prophet peace be upon him when he met me with smile at him. He was happy with him. He included him and this was the amazing thing about the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, I want you to remember this. In 23 years, the prophet started with one follower, his wife Khadija, and 23 years later, he had over 140,000 People 120,000 People with him without any marketing campaign without any social media. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did this, by exposing humanity to his character. And words, anyone that reads the prophets biography with an open mind will fall in love with him.

00:30:38--> 00:31:01

Because he was such an amazing person. Why is it that Muslims are kind, loving, generous, truthful, honest, why are they courageous? Why are they forward thinkers? Why do we believe in education? Why do we believe in contributing to humanity? The reason why we as Muslims do what we do is because we see the Prophet living that life, and therefore it's our goal now to live exactly like

00:31:03--> 00:31:49

this is not a religion of fraud. This is not a religion of swindling people. This is not a religion of cheating in line. This religion is based off of the teachings of a man who was understood by all of Arabia, even as enemies and foes as a Saudi. I mean, the man is truthful. Say whatever you want. The man is trustworthy. He never cheats under the person. I'm gonna have an honest with you, Allah Juan is overwhelmed by this. In one narration. This is what the Companions they say that when you met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in that moment, the prophet would treat you with so much attention and love that you would feel as if you were the center of the universe. He felt so

00:31:49--> 00:32:12

much love from the Prophet, he felt so welcomed and so special. He just became Muslim. Keep this in mind. Okay, Atheer, after hijab, he becomes Muslim, early Atheer, he becomes Muslim. And now one day he's sitting with the Prophet and he's so overwhelmed by the prophets attention and love, that he took the courage and asked the Prophet publicly, who is the most beloved to you in the face on the face of this earth.

00:32:14--> 00:32:27

And he actually thought it was going to be his name. He thought it was going to be him. But because it was publicly asked and people were listening, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responded back by saying, Hi, Aisha the moment a boo Ha,

00:32:28--> 00:32:52

ha, she was the most beloved to me, my wife. That's the truth. And then after that, he said her father Abubaker, he is most beloved to me. And then he kept asking and one narration I might have been asked at the Prophet started naming so many companions that I thought my name was not going to be on that list. Because that was the fact searching mission, versus what he experienced. And if you said Allahu Allahu wa salam gave him true love sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:32:54--> 00:32:55

He was trusted.

00:32:56--> 00:33:04

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he saw people with their particular skill set, he would trust them, empower them, leadership skills, true leadership.

00:33:05--> 00:33:18

One time they'd be so long while he was appointed him. This was in the Battle of the celestun. Over he pointed him leader over the army. And in that army, where people like Abu Bakr, Muhammad Ali, Allah Juana

00:33:19--> 00:33:28

because he was the brains, he was the genius in the battlefield. One time Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him, get your belongings ready and come and meet me.

00:33:30--> 00:33:35

He said, I came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, with my armor and with my clothing.

00:33:36--> 00:33:41

For a day two, oh, you're talaga in that moment, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was performing his widow.

00:33:43--> 00:33:44

The Prophet looked up at me.

00:33:45--> 00:33:50

And then he said, I will be sending you out with an army.

00:33:52--> 00:33:58

You will gain victory and also acquire a good amount of spoil spoils of war.

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

And I hope that the spoils of war will bring blessings to you. It will be good for you a source of high for you saleha

00:34:07--> 00:34:25

I'm gonna be honest with you Allah Juan. He says my a slum to edit in Mal. Well, I can ask them to rock button fill Islam while an akuna Mara so Linda, I didn't become Muslim for a while. I don't care for the spoils of war. I became Muslim to be with you a messenger of Allah.

00:34:26--> 00:34:32

I became Muslim because of my desire and love for Islam. How the story changes.

00:34:33--> 00:34:47

So sincere, so focused. He spends the remainder of his life trying to make up for what he missed out on in those earlier days. And this is what you'll see when people who accept Islam.

00:34:48--> 00:34:51

Those who accept Islam later in life.

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

They try to maximize what they have today because they realize that they are a little behind from those that

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

I've been Islam for a few years or they're not too proud of their yesterday it's their secret between them and their Allah what happened yesterday. They want to make up, they see the value in it. You see with people who accept Islam and they're so particular and so punctual

00:35:17--> 00:35:24

they're able to pray Salah more punctually than many people that are born Muslims pray Salam

00:35:25--> 00:35:26

you know

00:35:32--> 00:35:34

I want to say something but I'm not sure if I should say it.

00:35:39--> 00:35:43

There is a brother among us right now, sitting in this gathering,

00:35:44--> 00:35:46

who accepted Islam not too long ago.

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


00:35:50--> 00:35:54

when I met this person, I remember he came with me to the masjid

00:35:55--> 00:35:59

and he prayed his first Salah with us in congregation in JAMA.

00:36:01--> 00:36:04

And after that was done, I met the brother a few days later,

00:36:06--> 00:36:08

or rolling together and

00:36:10--> 00:36:11

doing some BJJ

00:36:12--> 00:36:18

and he turned to me and said that, you know, Imam, I started praying five times a day.

00:36:20--> 00:36:22

And I was thinking to myself, the man doesn't know in fact,

00:36:24--> 00:36:32

he doesn't know the surah of the Quran. He's still learning the words of Salah, but he's already figured out how to worship Allah five times a day.

00:36:34--> 00:36:35

Honestly, in that moment,

00:36:36--> 00:37:03

I was overwhelmed and oh, and I was thinking wow, Allah Yeah, just to be la he may be a sharp Well, yeah, he either he may you need as the Quran says, Allah selects who He wills. He reels those hearts in and brings them in nearby. keeps those people close. And every time I've met that person since then, what does he say to me? You know, if I'm, I learned a new statement. Look, I can say it now. I said, I'm on a coma Rahmatullah.

00:37:04--> 00:37:06

I learned a new statement and hamdulillahi rabbil aalameen.

00:37:07--> 00:37:10

i I'm learning more I'm learning more and learning more.

00:37:11--> 00:37:17

And it's a reflection for those of us that were born Muslim that how much desire do we have to learn our deen?

00:37:18--> 00:37:35

We've taken it for granted. That's what it is. We've taken our religion for granted. While there are people that sit right among us, where the spotlight of the heavens is directed at them because of their zeal, their yearning, their desire.

00:37:38--> 00:37:40

May Allah subhanaw taala elevate them.

00:37:50--> 00:37:51

One of my students,

00:37:52--> 00:37:55

was also someone very dear, near and beloved to me.

00:37:57--> 00:38:00

who also happens to be sitting in this gathering. Today's a melodica day.

00:38:01--> 00:38:02

But he's a special day.

00:38:03--> 00:38:04

I was teaching Hadith.

00:38:05--> 00:38:14

In the Hadith class, we covered the narration of how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would like to wear white garments.

00:38:17--> 00:38:18

So after the

00:38:20--> 00:38:22

class was over, the student came to me.

00:38:24--> 00:38:27

And he said, Sure,

00:38:28--> 00:38:31

I'd love to wear white garments like the prophet would wear.

00:38:32--> 00:38:36

But unfortunately, I'm not able to wear them because my eyesight is weak.

00:38:37--> 00:38:52

And I fear that if I were white, I'll drop something. I'll drop something on my clothes. And it'll be a source of humiliation for me. So do you think I can gain that love for a sort of loss of Aloha today with cinnamon without worrying about guilt?

00:38:55--> 00:39:14

I was in tears. Literally. wearing white is not even mandatory. It's not even you guys understand. It's just an expression of love for the prophets of Allah and Islam. But for this person, it was so heavy on their heart that I wish I could do this. But unfortunately, I'm not able to because of my limitations.

00:39:16--> 00:39:19

There are these people that Allah subhanahu wa taala puts

00:39:20--> 00:39:24

that flame that fire that desire that yearning in their heart.

00:39:26--> 00:39:40

I'm gonna be honest with you, Allah one was one of those people that I didn't become Muslim for Well, I became Muslim. Because I wanted your companionship when Hakuna Matata, Sula, some Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:39:42--> 00:39:51

One time I might have been asked, was with a group of people, for Saba, whom better than should eat this is reliable without famous narration. It got very cold at night.

00:39:52--> 00:40:00

Letting your Omitsu I mean the companions that say we had never dealt with such cold weather before. What do they call it? The Arctic

00:40:00--> 00:40:06

Freeze. Is that what America has been facing lately? But a cold weather so he said it was really cold. We were in the desert. It's very cold.

00:40:08--> 00:40:18

But how does any salata so I'm gonna be honest with you hola Juan, he came out to leave further Salah Bacala before he leaves the peninsula. He turns to the congregation and says

00:40:20--> 00:40:47

Bodhi last night I had a situation which led me into a major state of impurity, not a minor state of impurity, a major state and a major state of impurity. The way you recover from that in Islam is by bathing by taking a shower. Well that can name Allah Hema ra to better than Miss La Habra. However, even though I'm in a major state of impurity, I'm not taking a bath it's too cold for that I take a bath I'm gonna die.

00:40:50--> 00:41:07

But Hassan Mojave know who he washed off with there was water available he used the water to remove any impurity from his body what the what the Masabi know and been benefi What the What is salata masala be him he didn't do and lead them in prayer without doing in one rewire.

00:41:10--> 00:41:24

He said what the word VA What am Mama right but he did wudu and also did they emblem which is the more common position on how to recover from this sort of a scenario but both of you out there in Mumbai widowed narrates them.

00:41:26--> 00:41:27


00:41:28--> 00:41:43

he led them in prayer. When they came back to Madina, Munawwara the Companions, they asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, this is what happened. This is a unique case he was supposed to be he didn't pay then he let us in prayer as well. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he called Ahmed he said

00:41:44--> 00:41:45

why did you do that?

00:41:47--> 00:42:22

Baba who? Bidadi Kobuleti lucky me nobody will call in the law call will not have to enforce a common law How can I become Rahima? Well, if the centimeter he said God said not kill yourselves God and merciful and if I had taken a bath, I would have killed myself I would have died. But he got busted Allah on the prophets of Allah who it was some smile that his intelligence and his deduction from the Quran, his symbol and his father, he called a pseudo Lhasa. domani is one of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam departed this row. I'm gonna be honest, was not in Madina Munawwara

00:42:23--> 00:42:39

he was actually in a month in a month, sent by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he received news of the passing of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, through the letter of Abu Bakr, I thought who Kitab be bucket and be more fatty Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:42:41--> 00:42:58

During the during the time in the reign of the Philippines, the successors of the Prophet after the prophet had departed during the time of his successors. He held many top positions again intelligent man born leader, on one of them Cotabato the Allah one Wallah Amaru Amma run for the steam.

00:42:59--> 00:43:04

He put him responsible of the affairs of Philistine

00:43:05--> 00:43:07

and then he moved him to Egypt.

00:43:10--> 00:43:22

And when they headed towards Egypt for the conquest, Omar Abdullah, who was then sent wobba Omar Zubaydah madder than low he said Zubaydah the hola Juan as support for him.

00:43:25--> 00:44:07

He conquered Egypt, and I'll share one interaction between him and one of the leaders in Alexandria when he arrived in Alexandria with the army. The first person to bring conquests of Islam to Egypt, was this man Ahmed have been asked he was the one that brought Islam to Egypt. Anyone here from Egypt? That is Muslim, you should know that the origins of Islam in that region come from this man who accepted Islam two years before two three years before the purpose of the law, it's sort of passed away. On what are the Allahu Anh sent him there? He arrived so when he arrived in Alexandria, there's an interesting interaction that happened. How Roger Harada I'm going to ask narrates Khadija

00:44:07--> 00:44:39

J. Sherman and Muslim Nina Amuro whom Hatton has a nice Canaria that an army was marching towards Alexandria, and I was the amount of the leader of that army Bacara army minimum one of the leaders from the opposition set eladia Roger, aka Lima, whom are you telling me that sent me a person from you the Muslims so I can have a conversation with him? Well to La La he really I'm gonna be an asset immediately. I will be the only one that talks to this man. I'm going to face him. He's their leader. I will go as leader

00:44:41--> 00:44:47

for her so my auto Germani Who am I who told you man, I showed up with an interpreter. He showed up with an interpreter.

00:44:49--> 00:44:53

Two seats were put together for us to face off at the will the auto Nam In Bharani

00:44:55--> 00:44:55


00:44:57--> 00:44:59

The Egyptian General said

00:45:00--> 00:45:13

Man Tom What are you guys not man anthem could have said that but he didn't say man and didn't say who are you? He said Leave right at the pool ma motivator that will awkward he said man, what are you guys?

00:45:15--> 00:45:19

So to that, how much of an asset the Allahu ansaid not an Arab.

00:45:20--> 00:45:21

We are the Arab.

00:45:22--> 00:45:43

Mean Alex chokyi will call the winner early beta la quinta ADIA Canarsie Aragon were several who ation not could remain that our dama for your V rubaga. Allah Baldan could not be Sharon be surely Asian. I should be hiddenness Hatha Raja fina Rajan laser br Lemina

00:45:44--> 00:46:13

yo, ma even shut up on whether atherina Malin, Paula Anna Rasulullah he illegal, that we were people who live very tight lives, they didn't have much going for us. We weren't necessarily the most morally upright people. We were living a tough life. You know, there weren't too many luxuries available to us. And then all of a sudden this man stood up who wasn't the most honorable of us either. The key was from a good tribe but wasn't the most honorable, and neither was he the wealthiest. And he stood up and said, I am the messenger of Allah.

00:46:14--> 00:46:56

What did we do? We turned against him because of now who rather than ALLAH he had the Harada na he almond min Zilina? Oh, no, no, no, no call to Mankad Macatawa until we oppose them until some people from Medina came and they said why don't you come and live with us? We will support you. So he moved out over there for 100 a day him. Well, how does that relate? He we tried to follow him Wakata now who we fought against him Ferrara, Alena, he then was victorious over us. And then we fought against him again. And they the Arabs were victorious over him. And we kept going back and forth like this. Until one day we became Muslim.

00:46:57--> 00:47:30

And then he says, when we became Muslim, we were loyal to him. We are simple people. The Arabs that I have come with. This is a small group. If I were to announce in Arabia, of what lies ahead of us in terms of spoils of war, looking at their palaces and everything here, they would leave everything behind and run here like Black Friday. All the odds will show up here. He said his words. But autonomy man MA You mean allow the man to feed him in life? Let him Yeah, because Elijah accom they'll all show up at your doorstep.

00:47:31--> 00:47:36

So the general he began to follow HCA he laughed a little bit.

00:47:38--> 00:47:48

And he said some very kind words, reciprocating the message of I'm gonna be nice bananas. But then at the end, he said one statement which I think has great value this general he said,

00:47:49--> 00:48:00

In anthem, a HUBZone be Amany maybe you come lamb you call Tilikum. Hola. Hola, como. As long as you stay loyal to that profit, no one will ever beat you.

00:48:01--> 00:48:37

As long as you hold on firmly to the teaching of your prophet, no one will overcome you. In Hall up to move you will overcome them. Well, you therefore have to meet the foreigner but if you become like us and abandon your prophets, and get all material and worry more about position and station and politics for Dr. Ahmed on OB EUCOM, LEM Turku, UK parada Mina when I showed them when I showed them in Quwata, and then basically from there, it's all just going to come to an end. When a person becomes worldly. Allah takes everything away from them because you are no longer bastions of justice.

00:48:39--> 00:48:41

I'm gonna be honest with the Allah one.

00:48:42--> 00:49:23

As his health began to deteriorate, he lived in in let me just go back a little bit. He he served, he wrote, he managed the affairs of Egypt after conquest throughout the philosophy of American photography, law one and also in the earlier part of Montana, I found it to be a long one. And then he was replaced. And then during the time of Malawi or the last one, he continued to he was appointed by Mahavira your loved one to be back in Egypt manage affairs there and that's where he passed away and left this world when I'm gonna be honest with you Allah one was on his deathbed, he said to his companions, that bring all the wealth but I own so they brought it all and they weighed

00:49:23--> 00:49:24

it it was a very large amount.

00:49:26--> 00:49:49

Then he said maniac who will be Murphy he later who Cannonball Run, I wish someone would take all this wealth away. I wish it was nothing more than dunk because this wealth I will be answerable regarding it on the Day of Judgment. We're gonna have to up yet I'm gonna have to answer about every penny every penny every dollar. Yeah, late the Hookah bar. I wish it was just dunk. I wish I didn't have this money.

00:49:53--> 00:49:58

I'm not gonna ask you to say during his life that I find it amazing that people die but yet no one is able to describe death.

00:50:01--> 00:50:09

I mean, you know when someone's sick and they sometimes the illness can prolong a little bit. And when you ask them describe death not many people are able to describe it

00:50:10--> 00:50:21

for them by NASA be Hinomoto vacarro Who even who because only when he entered into the final stages of life, his son came and said, Yeah, Baba you said no one can describe death. Why don't you describe it for us?

00:50:22--> 00:50:43

Yeah, give me a moto. A German and use of my son death cannot be described. But if I were to describe it, but I couldn't use it for Willock if I were to describe it, I would say it has like a heavy mountain has been placed on my neck woca and the fee JioFi Ashok and as if there are thorns in my in my inside.

00:50:44--> 00:50:56

What did you do Nika and Mefa. See? nafasi Jaco German Ebro tentative My breath is coming out of the hole of a needle it's very hard to breathe. My soul is leading me bit by bit

00:50:57--> 00:51:15

when he was in those final moments, I'm gonna be honest with you Allah one turned to the head of his police car and he saw him he showed that he had killed whoo ha sabich that go and bring all your police force. So he immediately summon his police but my mother Hello Nevada la him I'm gonna be honest with you Allah one look towards them

00:51:17--> 00:51:28

what color ha God well off to how the hell do her and he said to the police that you guys are my force you guys are my protection that has come

00:51:29--> 00:51:30

removed that from me.

00:51:32--> 00:51:33

Get rid of this debt.

00:51:35--> 00:51:46

For call Miss Luca Johan Amelia Coldharbour. They said you're almost a year Ahmed, you say things like this? You're a hobby Rasulullah saw some how are we going to stop that from coming to you?

00:51:48--> 00:51:58

I'm gonna be honest with your loved ones. They said Haha, I'm gonna hola hola de la Mer de la Sol to their armor set Kadar off to? Well I can have up to that you do.

00:51:59--> 00:52:13

I know very well, you cannot get rid of debt. But I want you to learn your lesson. The fact that he said this to the police, the Armed Forces is powerful because he's reminding them. Be mindful and careful and gentle of people. Because tomorrow you will die like I'm dying today.

00:52:16--> 00:52:17

Justice is in your hands.

00:52:19--> 00:52:26

Don't be harsh with people don't accept usury. And don't accept bribery. Don't steal from people.

00:52:29--> 00:52:35

I'm gonna be honest with your loved one. When he was on his deathbed people came to visit him.

00:52:36--> 00:52:40

He turned his face to the wall with his back towards those that were visiting.

00:52:43--> 00:52:51

So his son Abdullah bin Ahmed said, limited key. Why are you crying Baba faces, it's okay lie down, be comfortable.

00:52:52--> 00:53:32

He said I'm crying. Because I lived three phases in my life. This is the real life. So he Muslim. I lived three phases. The first phase was where I was the greatest enemy of the Prophet, I fought against him in every battle. Had I died in that phase, I would have landed straight in the fire of hell. Then the second phase of my life, I became Muslim. And I was a companion of the Prophet. We lived with him, we ate with him, we walk with Him, we marched with him. He was happy with us. We were happy with him. If I had died in that phase, I was hopeful to be in paradise. But now we became leaders. All of these people

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

will hold us accountable on the Day of Judgment, all this wealth that I have acquired, I am responsible. And I don't know now where will I end up? Will I be taken to the fire of home or will I find myself in the companionship of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:53:57--> 00:53:58

He then said

00:54:03--> 00:54:03

that when I die

00:54:05--> 00:54:25

make sure there isn't some procession following me. I don't want people crying behind me and Shouting, shouting behind me. Neither was some Egyptian custom that they would carry a fire behind the body so they don't want any fire with me. Just walk up behind me and leave the area in front of my grave empty so the melodica can walk there

00:54:26--> 00:54:29

and then when you lower me into the grave

00:54:30--> 00:54:35

slowly dropped the soil on me so no alligator Robertson

00:54:39--> 00:54:46

and do not place any mausoleum on my grave don't make some big structure out of it. Keep it simple.

00:54:48--> 00:54:59

And once my grave is sealed off, don't leave right away. hang around for a little bit. Had that aesthetic nice have become so I can find comfort in this new place of mine.

00:55:00--> 00:55:02

while knowing that you are near me as well,

00:55:04--> 00:55:13

this is the story of the great companion of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Satana Ahmed have now asked about the Allahu dadan

00:55:16--> 00:55:20

his story is a lesson of how to make up for lost time.

00:55:22--> 00:55:34

How to hustle, how to push yourself, doing great things, while always being mindful of the past. Never forget where you came from. What your yesterday was.

00:55:35--> 00:55:39

Keep your eyes on that but thank Allah for today and keep working for a better tomorrow.

00:55:40--> 00:55:56

Allah subhanaw taala grant is still yet to learn from their lessons and allow us to follow their footsteps. Mahi resurrect us in their companionship and with them on the Day of Judgment. Well, son, Allahu Allah and I see them Hamid said Imani kumara Allah warahmatullahi wabarakatu.

00:56:01--> 00:56:24
