From the companions of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam

00:00:22--> 00:00:24

there were men and women, the elderly and

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

the young.

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

Each of them had

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

their unique story.

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

Though more time with the prophet of Allah

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

had

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

detailed account detailed account

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

the beauty

00:00:40--> 00:00:41

of that companionship.

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

The women who are around Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi

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

Wasallam

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

saw the Prophet of Allah as

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

a guide for the Ummah

00:00:54--> 00:00:57

and also someone who gave extra attention to

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

the needs

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

who answered their questions, who gave them who

00:01:04--> 00:01:06

gave them sat with them,

00:01:06--> 00:01:07

who

00:01:07--> 00:01:08

specifically

00:01:08--> 00:01:11

after speaking to the to the Congo, go

00:01:11--> 00:01:12

to the side.

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

Sometimes and

00:01:15--> 00:01:18

and whatever it is. As we learn from

00:01:18--> 00:01:19

the famous narration of

00:01:22--> 00:01:23

on the day of the Eid.

00:01:25--> 00:01:28

The young companion companions of the Quhari wasalam

00:01:29--> 00:01:31

also had a unique experience.

00:01:32--> 00:01:34

Got to see the prophet of Allah's compassion

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

of how he dealt with

00:01:36--> 00:01:38

the younger the younger Fadin Manawwala.

00:01:39--> 00:01:42

The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam sitting with them,

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

talking with talking with them, offer them,

00:01:44--> 00:01:46

giving them individual

00:01:46--> 00:01:47

attention

00:01:49--> 00:01:51

and then from the young companions there were

00:01:51--> 00:01:52

those who spent

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

a longer period with a period with a

00:01:54--> 00:01:54

problem.

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

They met Nabi salallahu alaihi wa sallam after

00:01:57--> 00:02:00

his arrival in Madinah or maybe earlier in

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

Makkah and then received suhbah

00:02:03--> 00:02:05

throughout his time in Madinah, Madinah Mun Allah.

00:02:06--> 00:02:08

So for all 10 years they had a

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

blessing

00:02:09--> 00:02:09

of

00:02:10--> 00:02:11

observing the law,

00:02:11--> 00:02:14

interacting with him. Sayyidina Anas bin Malik radiAllahu

00:02:14--> 00:02:16

an is a phenomenal.

00:02:18--> 00:02:20

And then there are those companions who met

00:02:20--> 00:02:21

the prophet of Allah,

00:02:21--> 00:02:22

they were young

00:02:25--> 00:02:27

yet didn't have that much time much time

00:02:27--> 00:02:29

because by the time they arrived to Madinah

00:02:29--> 00:02:30

Munawwara

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

the the clock was limited.

00:02:35--> 00:02:37

There were only a certain number of months

00:02:37--> 00:02:39

a limited time ahead of them.

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

Or yet then critics of Islam say that

00:02:45--> 00:02:48

these young people, how do they narrate so

00:02:48--> 00:02:50

many Eid from the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa

00:02:50--> 00:02:51

sallam?

00:02:52--> 00:02:54

Why is it that we don't we don't

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

see seniors narrating a hadith

00:02:57--> 00:02:59

from the prophet of Allah the way the

00:02:59--> 00:03:00

way the Yohanians narrate?

00:03:01--> 00:03:03

Why is it that Abu Bakr Siddiq radiAllahu

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

an has a fraction orations narrated from him?

00:03:07--> 00:03:09

Saybna Umar al Khattab radiAllahu an has

00:03:10--> 00:03:11

narration from him.

00:03:12--> 00:03:14

In comparison to

00:03:25--> 00:03:28

These people are much younger. They're narrating so

00:03:28--> 00:03:28

much.

00:03:31--> 00:03:32

When you study their lives their lives, you

00:03:32--> 00:03:34

appreciate that

00:03:34--> 00:03:36

these young companions

00:03:36--> 00:03:39

utilize their free free time, energy, their strength,

00:03:41--> 00:03:44

their intellect, their ability to memorize,

00:03:44--> 00:03:46

their eagerness to learn,

00:03:47--> 00:03:49

to absorbing knowledge from Ummah.

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

They made that their one goal.

00:03:53--> 00:03:54

They

00:03:54--> 00:03:55

dedicated a night to this.

00:03:56--> 00:03:58

If you want to understand how much a

00:03:58--> 00:04:00

person can learn in a simple 2, 3

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

years

00:04:03--> 00:04:05

with drive, with vision, with purpose purpose.

00:04:06--> 00:04:08

Take a look into the life of a

00:04:08--> 00:04:09

med school student.

00:04:11--> 00:04:14

Very short period of time, they force themselves

00:04:14--> 00:04:15

to grow

00:04:16--> 00:04:18

because they know what's waiting on the other

00:04:18--> 00:04:19

side is fruitful.

00:04:20--> 00:04:21

Go look at someone who's studying

00:04:23--> 00:04:24

law or someone who's,

00:04:25--> 00:04:27

who has their eyes set on any of

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

the humanities or even

00:04:29--> 00:04:32

psychology, understanding the human brain and mind.

00:04:33--> 00:04:35

In a very short period of time, with

00:04:35--> 00:04:38

focus, they're able to grow so so much.

00:04:40--> 00:04:42

These young companions were driven

00:04:42--> 00:04:44

by something something great than

00:04:44--> 00:04:46

a worldly material promise.

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

It was Aqsa hereafter.

00:04:51--> 00:04:51

And

00:04:52--> 00:04:54

they understood very careful carefully

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

thoroughly

00:04:56--> 00:04:57

that there was nothing more

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

valuable that they can dedicate their lives to

00:05:02--> 00:05:04

then inheriting the legacy of Rasulullah

00:05:06--> 00:05:07

It was a mindset.

00:05:07--> 00:05:09

It was a tarbia of the prophet sallallahu

00:05:09--> 00:05:10

alaihi wasallam.

00:05:11--> 00:05:14

Another big mistake that is made in this

00:05:14--> 00:05:16

regard is that there's an assumption that after

00:05:16--> 00:05:18

the prophet Allah departed from this world, their

00:05:18--> 00:05:21

journey to seeking knowledge came to an end.

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

That's far from the truth.

00:05:24--> 00:05:27

These young companions after the prophet sallallahu alaihi

00:05:27--> 00:05:28

wa aam departed

00:05:28--> 00:05:29

went

00:05:29--> 00:05:32

on to make the rest of their lives

00:05:32--> 00:05:34

about about traveling to the different companions that

00:05:34--> 00:05:36

were now throughout the world,

00:05:36--> 00:05:39

had now gone east, west, north and south

00:05:40--> 00:05:42

and capturing from them their moments with the

00:05:42--> 00:05:44

prophet prophet of Allah subhanahu alaihi wa sallam

00:05:45--> 00:05:47

and then narrating those ahadith.

00:05:48--> 00:05:50

Many of the narrations from the younger companions

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

are not directly from the prophet of Allah.

00:05:54--> 00:05:55

Many of them are.

00:05:56--> 00:05:59

But there is a significant number of that

00:06:00--> 00:06:03

they read from Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam Bilwasa

00:06:03--> 00:06:04

through another Sahabi.

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

Today we're going to take a look

00:06:08--> 00:06:10

at the life of a young companion

00:06:11--> 00:06:13

who had a short window with Rasulullah salallahu

00:06:13--> 00:06:14

alaihi wa sallam.

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

Yet he really absorbed

00:06:19--> 00:06:20

knowledge,

00:06:20--> 00:06:22

the duas of the Prophet of Allah,

00:06:23--> 00:06:24

a mastery in the Quran,

00:06:25--> 00:06:27

a detailed understanding of hadith.

00:06:27--> 00:06:30

And then after the prophet of Allah left

00:06:30--> 00:06:33

went to each companion that he could go

00:06:33--> 00:06:33

to

00:06:33--> 00:06:35

to learn the hadith of the prophet sallallahu

00:06:35--> 00:06:37

alaihi wa sallam from them.

00:06:38--> 00:06:39

And even though he was younger

00:06:40--> 00:06:42

and spent fewer months with the prophet of

00:06:42--> 00:06:42

Allah,

00:06:43--> 00:06:45

his accuracy and knowledge was

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

acknowledged

00:06:47--> 00:06:49

by the senior companions who are with the

00:06:49--> 00:06:51

prophet of Allah from the earliest days.

00:06:52--> 00:06:54

Sayyidina Umar ibn Khattab radiAllahu an

00:06:55--> 00:06:55

would respect

00:06:56--> 00:06:58

ibn Abbas radiallahu an.

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

When he would have his masjid al shura,

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

he would ensure that ibn Abbas radiallahu an

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

was sitting there.

00:07:04--> 00:07:06

Younger in age, way younger in age.

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

Yet the senior among the companions verified

00:07:10--> 00:07:13

that these young sahaba were crude giants.

00:07:14--> 00:07:17

So today we turn to the story of

00:07:17--> 00:07:19

a cousin of the Prophet of Allah,

00:07:20--> 00:07:20

Sayyidina

00:07:21--> 00:07:23

Abdullah ibn Abbas radiAllahuan.

00:07:24--> 00:07:26

His father Abbas ibn Abdul Muktalib,

00:07:27--> 00:07:29

we covered in our last class his story.

00:07:30--> 00:07:32

He is from the family members of the

00:07:32--> 00:07:33

prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:07:34--> 00:07:37

Abbas was the uncle of the prophet sallallahu

00:07:37--> 00:07:40

alaihi wa sallam which made Abdullah ibn Abbas

00:07:40--> 00:07:40

the

00:07:41--> 00:07:41

direct

00:07:42--> 00:07:44

first cousin of the prophet of Allah alaihi

00:07:44--> 00:07:45

salatu salam.

00:07:46--> 00:07:48

He was born 3 years

00:07:49--> 00:07:50

prior to

00:07:51--> 00:07:51

migration.

00:07:53--> 00:07:55

Somewhere around the time while the Muslims

00:07:56--> 00:07:58

faced the boycott on the Maqans.

00:07:59--> 00:08:01

It was at a time of great difficulty.

00:08:02--> 00:08:04

His circumstances were such that

00:08:05--> 00:08:06

he wasn't able to migrate

00:08:07--> 00:08:08

to Madinah Munawala.

00:08:09--> 00:08:10

The prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam

00:08:13--> 00:08:14

left Makkah

00:08:16--> 00:08:17

and upon arrival to Madinah

00:08:18--> 00:08:21

gave gave a command to the companions that

00:08:21--> 00:08:22

were in Makkah that those of you that

00:08:22--> 00:08:25

still remain make your way over. Most of

00:08:25--> 00:08:27

the companions have already departed by the time

00:08:27--> 00:08:29

the Prophet of Allah began his migration.

00:08:29--> 00:08:31

But the few that were behind, the prophet

00:08:31--> 00:08:33

of Allah instructed them, Make your way over.

00:08:34--> 00:08:36

Hijada what was now nisir.

00:08:37--> 00:08:39

However, there was an exclusion for those that

00:08:39--> 00:08:41

were that were not capable of completing this

00:08:41--> 00:08:43

task for one reason or another.

00:08:43--> 00:08:45

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala says

00:08:47--> 00:08:49

Those that were weak from them, from the

00:08:49--> 00:08:50

children

00:08:50--> 00:08:52

and from the women were granted

00:08:55--> 00:08:58

an exception. When Abbas became Muslim is a

00:08:58--> 00:08:59

discussion among scholars.

00:09:00--> 00:09:03

He couldn't migrate until his father had accepted

00:09:03--> 00:09:06

islam and secondly until his father publicly stated

00:09:06--> 00:09:07

his islam.

00:09:08--> 00:09:09

Abbas

00:09:09--> 00:09:12

did not publicly announce his Islam until much

00:09:12--> 00:09:13

later.

00:09:13--> 00:09:14

He remained

00:09:14--> 00:09:16

as the eyes and ears for the prophet

00:09:16--> 00:09:18

of Allah in Makkah even though the prophet

00:09:18--> 00:09:21

even though the prophet played a crucial role

00:09:21--> 00:09:23

keeping the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam updated

00:09:23--> 00:09:25

with the plans that the mutans were cooking

00:09:26--> 00:09:27

against Muslims in Islam.

00:09:29--> 00:09:31

In his own words he says

00:09:38--> 00:09:40

The ayah that granted an exclusion

00:09:41--> 00:09:43

for Hida, my mother and I were from

00:09:43--> 00:09:45

those people. The Quran mentions minal

00:09:47--> 00:09:49

from the children I was a young child

00:09:49--> 00:09:50

and 1 nisa

00:09:51--> 00:09:53

women from the women.

00:09:53--> 00:09:54

My brother was from the women so we

00:09:54--> 00:09:55

were held back.

00:09:57--> 00:09:58

He arrived

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

in

00:10:04--> 00:10:06

Madina at the age of 10.

00:10:09--> 00:10:09

Just

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

under 3 years before Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam

00:10:14--> 00:10:15

departed from this world.

00:10:17--> 00:10:18

When Nabi

00:10:19--> 00:10:20

used to wait,

00:10:23--> 00:10:24

how old was he?

00:10:25--> 00:10:27

Some scholars say that he was

00:10:27--> 00:10:28

13 years old.

00:10:29--> 00:10:31

Others hold the position he was 11 years

00:10:31--> 00:10:33

old. Some say he was 15 years old.

00:10:34--> 00:10:36

Ibn Abbas aviyal, Abbas aviyal's own words, he

00:10:36--> 00:10:39

says that I was right at the cusp

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

of reaching the age and the age of

00:10:41--> 00:10:43

when the prophet of Allah passed away.

00:10:44--> 00:10:46

Therefore majority of the scholars went with the

00:10:46--> 00:10:46

opinion

00:10:47--> 00:10:48

that his age was 13.

00:10:49--> 00:10:50

By that time,

00:10:52--> 00:10:54

he absorbed so much from the prophet of

00:10:54--> 00:10:54

Allah.

00:10:55--> 00:10:57

He narrates himself that one day that one

00:10:57--> 00:10:59

day Faisal alaihi wa sallam was riding on

00:10:59--> 00:11:01

an animal and I was with the prophet

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

of Allah.

00:11:07--> 00:11:07

The prophet

00:11:09--> 00:11:10

was riding along with me and he said

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

to me, oh young man,

00:11:12--> 00:11:13

be mindful of Allah.

00:11:23--> 00:11:25

When you ask, ask, ask. When you need

00:11:25--> 00:11:27

help, seek that help from Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:11:27--> 00:11:28

Ta'ala.

00:11:29--> 00:11:31

These words of the Prophet are found because

00:11:32--> 00:11:33

from one perspective

00:11:34--> 00:11:35

Nabi

00:11:35--> 00:11:38

salallahu alayhi is doing that youth halaqa.

00:11:39--> 00:11:41

He's speaking to a young man

00:11:41--> 00:11:43

and the advice he gives him is so

00:11:43--> 00:11:45

appropriate for that age.

00:11:46--> 00:11:48

Rasool Allahu alayhi wasalam

00:11:49--> 00:11:49

doesn't

00:11:50--> 00:11:51

wander here or there. He gets right to

00:11:51--> 00:11:53

he gets right to the point. And Rasool

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

Allahu alayhi wasalam addresses

00:11:56--> 00:11:58

the crux of the matter of the matter.

00:11:58--> 00:11:58

He establishes

00:11:59--> 00:12:00

his identity.

00:12:00--> 00:12:02

Be mindful of Allah. Allah should be mindful

00:12:02--> 00:12:03

should be mindful.

00:12:03--> 00:12:06

Let that be what guides you in life.

00:12:08--> 00:12:09

When you're young throughout the world,

00:12:10--> 00:12:12

who can you lean on? Who should you

00:12:12--> 00:12:13

not lean on?

00:12:14--> 00:12:16

What is trust? What does it mean to

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

be vulnerable?

00:12:17--> 00:12:18

Where should

00:12:19--> 00:12:20

my royalties be?

00:12:21--> 00:12:22

Prophet of Allah

00:12:23--> 00:12:24

lays all of that out

00:12:24--> 00:12:26

when you ask from Allah.

00:12:26--> 00:12:29

When you need help, seek help from Allah

00:12:30--> 00:12:33

The entire world were to gather against you.

00:12:33--> 00:12:35

They cannot harm you but what Allah has

00:12:35--> 00:12:37

written written harm for. And if they all

00:12:37--> 00:12:40

gather together to benefit you, they cannot benefit

00:12:40--> 00:12:42

you but the benefit the benefit come for

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

you.

00:12:43--> 00:12:44

The power in these words

00:12:45--> 00:12:47

for a young for a young person is

00:12:47--> 00:12:50

directly from the mouth of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi

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

Wasallam.

00:12:52--> 00:12:53

Setting that path

00:12:53--> 00:12:55

clearly straight

00:12:55--> 00:12:57

This is the road I need to walk

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

on.

00:12:57--> 00:12:59

This is how I establish

00:12:59--> 00:13:00

my relationships.

00:13:01--> 00:13:02

This is who should and should not be

00:13:02--> 00:13:03

be.

00:13:03--> 00:13:05

Values that need to be common with anyone

00:13:05--> 00:13:07

that is on this journey of life with

00:13:07--> 00:13:07

me.

00:13:09--> 00:13:10

Things go up or down, I need to

00:13:10--> 00:13:13

keep my eyes on the road ahead that

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

lead to my creator to my Allah Subhanahu

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

wa

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

Ta'ala.

00:13:17--> 00:13:20

Sayyidina Abdullah ibn Abbas Abbas

00:13:21--> 00:13:23

He had a unique position because not only

00:13:23--> 00:13:24

was he a Sahabi of the Prophet of

00:13:24--> 00:13:26

Allah but he was a family member.

00:13:27--> 00:13:29

And his kara, his mother's sister

00:13:29--> 00:13:31

was the was the one of Allah sallallahu

00:13:31--> 00:13:32

alaihi wasallam.

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

One day he approached his kala and

00:13:35--> 00:13:37

made a request, I'd like to spend the

00:13:37--> 00:13:38

night with you.

00:13:38--> 00:13:39

She said, Well, I'd love for you to

00:13:39--> 00:13:40

spend the night but

00:13:41--> 00:13:41

tonight

00:13:42--> 00:13:44

the prophet of Allah who will be spending

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

the night with me so I need His

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

permission.

00:13:47--> 00:13:49

Abbas radiAllahu anhu says, yeah, that's why I

00:13:49--> 00:13:50

want to spend the night.

00:13:52--> 00:13:53

To the Prophet of Allah.

00:13:54--> 00:13:56

He's under 13 years old

00:13:57--> 00:13:58

and look and look how far sighted he

00:13:58--> 00:13:59

is.

00:14:00--> 00:14:01

That I want to be the one that

00:14:01--> 00:14:04

sees what the Prophet sallallahu anhu anhu's

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

salAllahu an Abbas radiAllahu an then in so

00:14:16--> 00:14:17

much detail

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

paints the whole picture picture

00:14:25--> 00:14:27

I spent the night with

00:14:27--> 00:14:28

my Khala,

00:14:28--> 00:14:30

my maternal aunt

00:14:34--> 00:14:35

When the Prophet of Allah

00:14:35--> 00:14:38

went to Sayyidina Abdullah bin Abbas knew

00:14:39--> 00:14:42

the Prophet would wake up for his insulah

00:14:42--> 00:14:44

in the middle of the night. And he

00:14:44--> 00:14:46

wanted everything to be prepared for the part

00:14:46--> 00:14:47

of the prophet of Allah. He want Nabi

00:14:47--> 00:14:50

salallahu alayhi wasalam to have any difficulty for

00:14:50--> 00:14:53

that night. He was there with his why

00:14:53--> 00:14:55

should the prophet of Allah have any challenges

00:14:55--> 00:14:56

or any needs unmet.

00:14:57--> 00:14:58

So so he

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

took a container and fetched some water

00:15:01--> 00:15:02

and he placed the water

00:15:03--> 00:15:05

right before Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.

00:15:07--> 00:15:08

Nabi Sallallahu

00:15:11--> 00:15:12

alaihi wasalam when he woke up he saw

00:15:12--> 00:15:14

the water there and it wasn't, they went

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

to sleep

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

and it wasn't normally there. Someone went out

00:15:18--> 00:15:19

of their way and had

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

a sincere

00:15:21--> 00:15:24

thought in serving Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wasall. The

00:15:24--> 00:15:26

prophet of Allah was so touched by this

00:15:26--> 00:15:28

gesture that he then asked,

00:15:28--> 00:15:29

manwala ahadah?

00:15:30--> 00:15:31

Who put this on here?

00:15:32--> 00:15:33

He was informed

00:15:33--> 00:15:34

that it was Abdullah,

00:15:35--> 00:15:35

your cousin,

00:15:36--> 00:15:37

Abbas radiAllahu anaihi

00:15:38--> 00:15:38

wa

00:15:39--> 00:15:41

sallam was so impressed

00:15:41--> 00:15:42

by his muhaba,

00:15:43--> 00:15:46

by him taking initiative and doing khidma and

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

serving.

00:15:48--> 00:15:49

It shows humility,

00:15:49--> 00:15:51

it shows thought,

00:15:51--> 00:15:52

It shows

00:15:52--> 00:15:53

attention to detail.

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

The prophet of Allah

00:15:56--> 00:15:57

in that moment

00:16:03--> 00:16:06

Allah, give him the knowledge of the meanings

00:16:06--> 00:16:07

of the Quran.

00:16:08--> 00:16:09

And you Allah

00:16:09--> 00:16:12

give him a deep understanding of the deen.

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

Earlier today at the seminary,

00:16:17--> 00:16:18

I was

00:16:20--> 00:16:21

teaching the year 5 students

00:16:22--> 00:16:24

and one nasiha that I gave to them

00:16:24--> 00:16:25

was

00:16:26--> 00:16:27

if you want to grow in knowledge and

00:16:27--> 00:16:29

you wish for Allah to

00:16:31--> 00:16:33

take a special and unique khidma of the

00:16:33--> 00:16:34

deen from you,

00:16:35--> 00:16:36

One of the easiest ways

00:16:37--> 00:16:40

is through serving scholars and people of knowledge,

00:16:40--> 00:16:42

those that are beloved to Allah Subhanahu Wa

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

Ta'ala

00:16:43--> 00:16:45

and through earning their duas.

00:16:46--> 00:16:48

It's a guaranteed way it works.

00:16:48--> 00:16:50

This is one thing we learned from our

00:16:50--> 00:16:50

teachers.

00:16:51--> 00:16:52

They say in

00:16:53--> 00:16:53

that

00:16:54--> 00:16:56

through service you find God.

00:16:56--> 00:16:59

It boils down to those duas.

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

In reality, that's what life all

00:17:02--> 00:17:05

is. It's about finding people who matter, serving

00:17:05--> 00:17:06

them and earning their duas.

00:17:07--> 00:17:09

Whether it's your parent, whether it's an orphan,

00:17:10--> 00:17:12

whether it's a person who is in need

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

on the street,

00:17:14--> 00:17:16

you keep collecting those duas, you collect those

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

duas

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

until Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala directs his rahma

00:17:20--> 00:17:21

towards you

00:17:21--> 00:17:23

and then everything changes.

00:17:24--> 00:17:25

It could come in the form of a

00:17:25--> 00:17:26

dua of a teacher.

00:17:27--> 00:17:29

May Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala accept you for

00:17:29--> 00:17:31

the khidna of the deen and it comes

00:17:31--> 00:17:33

from a very sincere place because they give

00:17:33--> 00:17:34

that dua

00:17:35--> 00:17:38

in response to observing your inserig, your ikhlas.

00:17:39--> 00:17:40

It can be artificial.

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

That fitna has to originate from a place

00:17:43--> 00:17:44

of ikhlas.

00:17:45--> 00:17:47

A place of genuine true mhabba.

00:17:49--> 00:17:51

It's a sign of humility and humbleness for

00:17:51--> 00:17:53

a person to serve another.

00:17:53--> 00:17:56

And Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala's love for his

00:17:56--> 00:17:58

friends is such that those that attach themselves

00:17:59--> 00:18:01

to the friends of Allah also become beloved

00:18:01--> 00:18:03

to Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala.

00:18:04--> 00:18:06

This isn't to negate that you can still

00:18:06--> 00:18:09

build your relationship with Allah without any intermediary,

00:18:09--> 00:18:11

without any third person. That's always there for

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

you. Yet at the same time our deen

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

has a story, there's a tradition,

00:18:21--> 00:18:23

a secret between every student that sought knowledge

00:18:23--> 00:18:24

from their teacher.

00:18:25--> 00:18:27

And it's one of love, mahaba, and fitna.

00:18:31--> 00:18:32

Eliminating this

00:18:34--> 00:18:35

very intimate personal relationship,

00:18:37--> 00:18:38

this aspect

00:18:38--> 00:18:40

from that connection of the student and teacher

00:18:41--> 00:18:42

leaves you with

00:18:43--> 00:18:45

a very dry version of the religion

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

that focuses more

00:18:47--> 00:18:48

on texts and books

00:18:49--> 00:18:51

and less with practice

00:18:52--> 00:18:53

and the duas of the elders

00:18:54--> 00:18:56

and spiritual upliftment

00:18:57--> 00:18:58

that is a result

00:18:59--> 00:19:00

of companionship.

00:19:02--> 00:19:03

May Allah

00:19:04--> 00:19:06

bless us all with those opportunities.

00:19:07--> 00:19:09

May he allow us to understand

00:19:09--> 00:19:10

the value

00:19:10--> 00:19:10

of

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

serving

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

those that serve the deen.

00:19:30--> 00:19:33

And it was time for salah, the prophet

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

salahu alaihi wasalam

00:19:35--> 00:19:37

instructed him to stand next to the stand

00:19:37--> 00:19:38

next to him

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

and even though rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wasallam told

00:19:46--> 00:19:48

him to stand right next to him,

00:19:48--> 00:19:50

he chose to stand, chose to stand, beyond

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

Allah.

00:19:53--> 00:19:54

Rasoolallahu

00:19:54--> 00:19:57

alaihi wasallam asked him that why would you

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

stand behind me when I instructed you to

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

stand next to me?

00:20:02--> 00:20:03

He said

00:20:09--> 00:20:10

You are too great in my eyes to

00:20:10--> 00:20:13

stand next to you. I belong behind you.

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

To that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam

00:20:21--> 00:20:23

The prophet of Allah raised Allah raised the

00:20:23--> 00:20:24

heavens and said oh Allah

00:20:25--> 00:20:26

bless this young man with wisdom.

00:20:30--> 00:20:31

Ibn Abbas radiAllahu an

00:20:32--> 00:20:33

would frequent

00:20:33--> 00:20:35

the gathering of the Prophet of Allah.

00:20:36--> 00:20:38

Maimun ibn Meharan says,

00:20:39--> 00:20:41

I heard ibn Abbas radiAllahu anhu

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

who said,

00:20:43--> 00:20:44

I passed by

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

Rasulullah

00:20:46--> 00:20:48

Alaihi Wasallam and he was wearing beautiful white

00:20:48--> 00:20:49

garments.

00:20:51--> 00:20:54

Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam was speaking to his

00:20:54--> 00:20:57

companion companion Khalifa Al Kalbi.

00:20:59--> 00:21:01

In reality it wasn't Bihyah radiAllahu an that

00:21:01--> 00:21:04

he was speaking to it was Saydna Jibreel

00:21:05--> 00:21:07

alaihis salam Jibreel alaihis salam in the form

00:21:07--> 00:21:09

of Dihyah radiAllahu an

00:21:09--> 00:21:11

when speaking to the Prophet of Allah, when

00:21:11--> 00:21:13

Allah, when blessing him with revelation

00:21:15--> 00:21:17

Jabeel alaihis salaam asked

00:21:17--> 00:21:20

manhadah who is this? Waqala ibn Ammi,

00:21:21--> 00:21:23

the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa'alehi he was

00:21:23--> 00:21:24

this is

00:21:25--> 00:21:26

my nephew.

00:21:26--> 00:21:27

Jibreel

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

Ali

00:21:28--> 00:21:29

said

00:21:29--> 00:21:31

how filthy are his garments, he was a

00:21:31--> 00:21:32

kid,

00:21:32--> 00:21:33

It

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

looked too

00:21:38--> 00:21:38

clean.

00:21:40--> 00:21:42

That from his children there will be great

00:21:42--> 00:21:43

leaders

00:21:43--> 00:21:44

and it's from from

00:21:45--> 00:21:46

that that lineage comes

00:21:47--> 00:21:48

of leaders.

00:21:49--> 00:21:50

Not necessarily

00:21:50--> 00:21:52

his descendants but from that same family.

00:21:54--> 00:21:55

Said

00:21:57--> 00:21:57

to me,

00:21:59--> 00:22:00

Did you see the one that I won

00:22:00--> 00:22:01

that I was with?

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

Said yes.

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

That they will come they will come lose

00:22:12--> 00:22:13

your eyesight

00:22:14--> 00:22:15

and later on towards the end of his

00:22:15--> 00:22:18

life Sayyidina Abu Laban Abu Laban Abu Bas'an

00:22:18--> 00:22:19

became blind.

00:22:20--> 00:22:23

The narration here, this particular particular cycle of

00:22:23--> 00:22:24

Dhruaya

00:22:25--> 00:22:27

does have dua'at in it. It does have

00:22:27--> 00:22:28

some weakness in it.

00:22:35--> 00:22:36

He was

00:22:36--> 00:22:38

a fountain of knowledge.

00:22:40--> 00:22:42

After the prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam departed from

00:22:42--> 00:22:43

this world,

00:22:44--> 00:22:46

his his 3rd hadith in Quran did not

00:22:46--> 00:22:47

come to an end.

00:22:48--> 00:22:50

He went to everyone that he could.

00:22:52--> 00:22:53

He narrates himself

00:22:54--> 00:22:55

that when

00:22:55--> 00:22:57

I heard them from the companions of the

00:22:57--> 00:22:59

prophet of Allah hadeeth, I would go to

00:22:59--> 00:23:00

his door

00:23:01--> 00:23:03

during the midday hours

00:23:03--> 00:23:05

and I would use my sheath

00:23:05--> 00:23:08

as a as a pillow and lie right

00:23:08--> 00:23:09

at the doorstep.

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

The

00:23:11--> 00:23:12

the

00:23:12--> 00:23:13

the

00:23:13--> 00:23:15

wind carrying the dirt and the dry dust

00:23:15--> 00:23:17

would blow into my face

00:23:17--> 00:23:19

and bother me. I waited.

00:23:20--> 00:23:22

I waited for that Sahabi to come out.

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

If I wanted to knock on the door

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

and seek permission, I could have done that,

00:23:29--> 00:23:31

But I didn't want to because I knew

00:23:31--> 00:23:32

that it wasn't the right thing.

00:23:34--> 00:23:35

When the he would exit the home and

00:23:35--> 00:23:37

see me lying at his doorstep,

00:23:38--> 00:23:40

They would commonly commonly say, I'm Rasool Allah

00:23:40--> 00:23:42

Maja Abi, O cousin of the prophet of

00:23:42--> 00:23:44

Allah why are you here?

00:23:45--> 00:23:47

You should have sent someone to call me.

00:23:49--> 00:23:51

You should you should have gone to me,

00:23:51--> 00:23:52

I would have come to you.

00:23:54--> 00:23:55

But I would say to the Sahabi then

00:24:01--> 00:24:03

more worthy to be sitting at your door

00:24:03--> 00:24:05

for knowledge come for knowledge

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

is is come to meaning a person

00:24:08--> 00:24:09

shouldn't

00:24:09--> 00:24:11

wait for knowledge to come to them. They

00:24:11--> 00:24:12

should come to come to knowledge.

00:24:13--> 00:24:14

Knowledge is approached.

00:24:15--> 00:24:16

You don't wait for knowledge to come to

00:24:16--> 00:24:18

you. You don't need need some knock on

00:24:18--> 00:24:20

your door sitting in your living room and

00:24:20--> 00:24:21

teach you Quran

00:24:21--> 00:24:22

when you could be the one that the

00:24:22--> 00:24:24

one that gets back and goes to the

00:24:24--> 00:24:24

masjid.

00:24:25--> 00:24:26

That's the proper Adam.

00:24:27--> 00:24:29

The muhadi muhadi threw will come out this.

00:24:30--> 00:24:31

When they saw the khulafa

00:24:32--> 00:24:34

inviting them to their home their homes to

00:24:34--> 00:24:36

give private gurus to their children, they would

00:24:36--> 00:24:37

refuse.

00:24:37--> 00:24:39

But this is beneath the

00:24:39--> 00:24:40

the arkage.

00:24:40--> 00:24:43

The student will come. They can be few,

00:24:44--> 00:24:45

but as long as long as they're and

00:24:45--> 00:24:47

they understand the sacrifice they need to be

00:24:47--> 00:24:49

they need to make to be in the

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

gathering,

00:24:50--> 00:24:52

Be humble, they will be sincere,

00:24:53--> 00:24:55

they will open their hearts, they will listen

00:24:55--> 00:24:55

attentively,

00:24:56--> 00:24:58

they will preserve and they will convey.

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

It's a part

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

of develop development to change.

00:25:04--> 00:25:05

When a person gets in a car and

00:25:05--> 00:25:07

starts drugs driving, waits in

00:25:07--> 00:25:10

traffic and then arrives a little early and

00:25:10--> 00:25:11

waits for the teacher and reads a little

00:25:11--> 00:25:14

Quran, made some salah and then listens to

00:25:14--> 00:25:16

the dares and hangs around for salah again

00:25:16--> 00:25:17

and then heads back. That whole thing whole

00:25:17--> 00:25:18

thing is a sass.

00:25:20--> 00:25:22

This is the challenge with on

00:25:22--> 00:25:23

online security.

00:25:24--> 00:25:26

The sacrifice is taken away from it.

00:25:26--> 00:25:29

It's very beneficial for the for those who

00:25:29--> 00:25:31

may not be in the same vicinity or

00:25:31--> 00:25:33

state or town that they can join gatherings

00:25:34--> 00:25:36

but it is a disaster for those who

00:25:36--> 00:25:37

live around the corner from the masjid.

00:25:38--> 00:25:41

It is an afasiba for those who live

00:25:41--> 00:25:42

in the same community,

00:25:42--> 00:25:44

who can actually get up and make that

00:25:44--> 00:25:44

sacrifice.

00:25:46--> 00:25:47

It creates laziness

00:25:48--> 00:25:50

and potentially even to some degree,

00:25:51--> 00:25:52

could give birth to

00:25:53--> 00:25:55

arrogance and entitlement.

00:25:58--> 00:25:59

Ibn Abbas similarly,

00:26:01--> 00:26:02

he narrate another story

00:26:03--> 00:26:03

that

00:26:05--> 00:26:06

Zayd ibn Tabith radiAllahuwahuan

00:26:07--> 00:26:09

Sahabi of the prophet of Allah, the one

00:26:09--> 00:26:10

that was the scribe of revelation,

00:26:11--> 00:26:13

the leader of the and scholars,

00:26:14--> 00:26:15

master of recitation,

00:26:16--> 00:26:17

a true scholar

00:26:18--> 00:26:19

in all regards.

00:26:20--> 00:26:22

When he would pass by in the streets

00:26:22--> 00:26:23

of Madinah, ibd Abbas

00:26:24--> 00:26:26

would grab the front of his animal and

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

hold the reins and walk his animal, which

00:26:29--> 00:26:30

is a great

00:26:30--> 00:26:32

act of humility and khidba.

00:26:33--> 00:26:34

The animal goes a little, he goes a

00:26:34--> 00:26:36

little there, usually the rider holds the reins

00:26:36--> 00:26:38

to keep the animal in mind. Ibn Abbas

00:26:38--> 00:26:40

radiAllahu an he would hold the animals rope

00:26:40--> 00:26:43

and he would basically relieve it was Zayd

00:26:43--> 00:26:44

radiAllahu an,

00:26:45--> 00:26:46

like a chauffeur

00:26:47--> 00:26:49

that I'll guide your animal for you. But

00:26:49--> 00:26:50

rather than sitting with you and burdening your

00:26:50--> 00:26:52

animal, I'm gonna walk out of humility and

00:26:52--> 00:26:54

humbleness and he would hold the animal of

00:26:54--> 00:26:56

zaydun tabbat of yallahu and walking around in

00:26:56--> 00:26:58

the streets and imagine that scene

00:26:59--> 00:27:02

that on one side you have Afarazaydul al

00:27:02--> 00:27:02

Thabit.

00:27:03--> 00:27:05

One of the greatest legal minds, Zaydul al

00:27:05--> 00:27:08

Thabit radiallahuhan sitting on the animal and the

00:27:08--> 00:27:10

young cousin of Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wa sallam

00:27:10--> 00:27:12

who was respected and loved by all holding

00:27:12--> 00:27:15

the reins walking him through Madinah Manawah.

00:27:15--> 00:27:18

Zayd radiAllahu An would say to him that

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

let go of my animal O cousin of

00:27:19--> 00:27:21

the Prophet of Allah

00:27:21--> 00:27:23

Waqalab Nabas radiAllahu An

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

I will not let go

00:27:28--> 00:27:31

because we were instructed to take care of

00:27:31--> 00:27:32

our fathers in such a manner.

00:27:33--> 00:27:35

This is how we take care of them.

00:27:35--> 00:27:36

This is how we serve them.

00:27:36--> 00:27:37

Zayd

00:27:40--> 00:27:42

radiAllahu anhu says show me your hand.

00:27:53--> 00:27:57

Ibn Abbas radiAllahu held out his hand, Zayd

00:27:57--> 00:27:59

radiAllahu leaned forward and kissed his hand

00:27:59--> 00:28:00

and said

00:28:01--> 00:28:02

and such is how we've

00:28:03--> 00:28:05

been commanded and taught to deal with the

00:28:05--> 00:28:06

family members of our Prophet.

00:28:07--> 00:28:08

You respect the scholars,

00:28:09--> 00:28:11

we respect the family members of Rasulullah

00:28:11--> 00:28:13

sallallahu alaihi wasallam.

00:28:13--> 00:28:16

He had so many students,

00:28:17--> 00:28:19

masters of Quran, fit and khareem

00:28:20--> 00:28:22

that had spread throughout the world.

00:28:22--> 00:28:25

When people would visit Madinah Munawwara, a visit

00:28:25--> 00:28:26

to ibn Abbas

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

was necessary.

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

When people visited Basra while he was there,

00:28:31--> 00:28:33

they would stop by

00:28:34--> 00:28:35

with to to be with,

00:28:36--> 00:28:37

ibn Abbas

00:28:38--> 00:28:40

Even the sahaba, they knew that if you

00:28:40--> 00:28:41

went to a city where the family members

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

of the prophet of Allah were and in

00:28:43--> 00:28:45

particular if it was in nabas of yallahu

00:28:45--> 00:28:47

an, you had to go meet him. You

00:28:47--> 00:28:48

would go and give salah. You would respect

00:28:48--> 00:28:49

them.

00:28:50--> 00:28:52

This is unfortunately something that's disappeared in our

00:28:52--> 00:28:53

communities that you go out of your way

00:28:53--> 00:28:55

and meet scholars and meet people of virtue

00:28:55--> 00:28:57

when you go to a town.

00:28:57--> 00:28:59

When when when we visit a city, the

00:28:59--> 00:29:01

first thing we ask about are the hotels,

00:29:01--> 00:29:02

the

00:29:02--> 00:29:04

attractions and the restaurants.

00:29:05--> 00:29:07

They would ask about Wudu Al Anawar,

00:29:08--> 00:29:09

they would ask about the sahab

00:29:10--> 00:29:12

and they would go and meet them and

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

take their duas.

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

Saydna Abu Ayub al Ansari radiAllahu an he

00:29:17--> 00:29:18

visited Basra.

00:29:20--> 00:29:23

Ibn AbadiAllahu an when he heard he sent

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

for

00:29:23--> 00:29:25

him. Abu yawul Ansari

00:29:26--> 00:29:28

came to his home.

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

Abu yawul Ansisted

00:29:30--> 00:29:32

that you will not

00:29:32--> 00:29:33

stay

00:29:33--> 00:29:35

anywhere in Basra other than my home.

00:29:36--> 00:29:37

My home is yours

00:29:38--> 00:29:40

And he vacated the home and he said,

00:29:40--> 00:29:42

we shall do with you as you did

00:29:42--> 00:29:43

with our prophet.

00:29:44--> 00:29:45

You emptied your home for the prophet of

00:29:45--> 00:29:47

Allah salallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:29:52--> 00:29:54

You emptied your home for the Prophet of

00:29:54--> 00:29:56

Allah when he arrived in Madinah, our homes

00:29:56--> 00:29:57

will always be yours.

00:30:01--> 00:30:03

Ibn Abbas radiAllahu anhu asked Abuayi

00:30:04--> 00:30:06

how are things with you?

00:30:07--> 00:30:08

Abuayyub answered

00:30:09--> 00:30:09

him

00:30:09--> 00:30:11

that things are well but

00:30:11--> 00:30:12

lately I've been

00:30:13--> 00:30:15

drowning in some debt, I owe a lot

00:30:15--> 00:30:16

of money to people,

00:30:17--> 00:30:18

I've been struggling.

00:30:19--> 00:30:20

Abbas radiAllahu an

00:30:21--> 00:30:21

a'radat

00:30:22--> 00:30:24

He said I have 40,000

00:30:24--> 00:30:25

I'm sorry, 20,000.

00:30:26--> 00:30:27

I owe 20,000.

00:30:37--> 00:30:38

He said you have a 20,000

00:30:39--> 00:30:41

debt, here's 40,000 for you

00:30:42--> 00:30:45

and here are 20 personal slaves for you

00:30:45--> 00:30:47

and everything in my house will be sent

00:30:47--> 00:30:48

will be sent.

00:30:49--> 00:30:50

You will never need to ask anyone for

00:30:50--> 00:30:51

anything again.

00:30:52--> 00:30:53

You are the host or the host of

00:30:53--> 00:30:55

sallallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:30:56--> 00:30:58

His students, they say,

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

Alaa

00:31:03--> 00:31:04

says that one time, does that one time

00:31:05--> 00:31:07

even the Judaism narrates actually that we were

00:31:07--> 00:31:08

sitting with

00:31:12--> 00:31:14

A few of us students we're all just

00:31:14--> 00:31:16

talking about scholars

00:31:16--> 00:31:18

and gatherings of knowledge

00:31:18--> 00:31:19

but

00:31:22--> 00:31:24

name came up. All those gatherings were so

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

amazing.

00:31:24--> 00:31:26

He was such a giant, a giant, a

00:31:26--> 00:31:27

legit man.

00:31:28--> 00:31:29

What a blessing to live

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

during his life.

00:31:35--> 00:31:35

He said

00:31:44--> 00:31:47

After my teacher and beloved passed away,

00:31:47--> 00:31:49

every time I saw the full moon on

00:31:49--> 00:31:50

the 14th night

00:31:51--> 00:31:53

of the month, I would remember the beauty

00:31:53--> 00:31:55

member of the beautiful teacher, Abdullah ibn Abbas

00:31:55--> 00:31:56

radhiallahu an

00:31:56--> 00:31:57

Such was his

00:31:58--> 00:31:59

beauty.

00:32:00--> 00:32:03

Al Qirima narrates that ibn Abbas radiAllahu an

00:32:03--> 00:32:04

when he would pass by

00:32:04--> 00:32:07

and the people would begin to wonder if

00:32:08--> 00:32:09

the fragrance

00:32:11--> 00:32:13

was a walk through the streets or ibna

00:32:13--> 00:32:14

Abbas had just passed by.

00:32:15--> 00:32:17

Carrying fragrance was

00:32:17--> 00:32:19

spreading scent in the streets or it was

00:32:19--> 00:32:20

ibn Abbas and when they would look outside,

00:32:20--> 00:32:21

they would look outside. They would look outside.

00:32:21--> 00:32:21

He

00:32:22--> 00:32:23

was very particular

00:32:23--> 00:32:25

about his scent and the way he carried

00:32:25--> 00:32:26

himself.

00:32:27--> 00:32:30

Imam al Baladri narrates a Iwa from

00:32:30--> 00:32:32

Mas'urukh al Ajlah,

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

one of the great Tabiis

00:32:40--> 00:32:41

When I will look at my teacher, ibn

00:32:41--> 00:32:42

Abbas radiAllahu

00:32:42--> 00:32:44

an eye is the most handsome of people.

00:32:48--> 00:32:50

And when he spoke, I would say he

00:32:50--> 00:32:52

was the most eloquent of people.

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

And when he would narrate

00:32:57--> 00:32:59

that he was the most knowledgeable of people

00:32:59--> 00:33:00

of people. Well rounded.

00:33:01--> 00:33:02

Well rounded.

00:33:02--> 00:33:04

Ibn Abbas radiAllahu an himself

00:33:05--> 00:33:07

that I have read the entire Quran and

00:33:07--> 00:33:10

have a deep understanding of the ending of

00:33:10--> 00:33:11

end of end of Quran.

00:33:11--> 00:33:13

I know the origins of the ayaat and

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

where they came and what they apply they

00:33:15--> 00:33:17

apply to the words are taken from, where

00:33:17--> 00:33:20

they originate from, and what they mean except

00:33:20--> 00:33:21

for 3 3.

00:33:22--> 00:33:24

And then he lists those 3 words. So

00:33:24--> 00:33:25

these were 3 words

00:33:25--> 00:33:26

I could I couldn't,

00:33:27--> 00:33:30

figure out the meaning of them. But other

00:33:30--> 00:33:32

than that every other word of word of

00:33:32--> 00:33:35

the every other meaning of the Quran Allah

00:33:35--> 00:33:37

Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala had given him

00:33:37--> 00:33:38

that understanding

00:33:43--> 00:33:45

The gatherings, his students grew

00:33:45--> 00:33:46

and there were so many of them that

00:33:46--> 00:33:49

when people would gather gather at a study

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

from him,

00:33:50--> 00:33:53

the gathering would spill from inside the home

00:33:53--> 00:33:54

to out to out streets.

00:34:12--> 00:34:13

That if all of the Quraysh were to

00:34:13--> 00:34:14

boast

00:34:14--> 00:34:17

about how how student body was of Ibn

00:34:17--> 00:34:19

Abbasid, the Allahu, and it was deserving

00:34:28--> 00:34:28

it.

00:34:29--> 00:34:31

For I saw the roads that led to

00:34:31--> 00:34:33

the house, house B'na, beallahuwan, would be full

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

of students

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

waiting for their chance to get their question

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

answered answered. To hear from Ibn Abbas abba'l

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

alaihiallahu

00:34:40--> 00:34:42

an. People couldn't pass by.

00:34:42--> 00:34:44

Those that went somewhere else couldn't go. They

00:34:44--> 00:34:45

had to do a detour.

00:34:50--> 00:34:51

So I went inside and told them that,

00:34:51--> 00:34:52

Haribi, you know

00:34:54--> 00:34:56

you know what's going on outside, but it's

00:34:56--> 00:34:58

packed out there. No one can move. It's

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

a it's a locked locked down. There are

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

too many people.

00:35:04--> 00:35:05

He said

00:35:05--> 00:35:06

go bring some water

00:35:09--> 00:35:10

he then performed performed his

00:35:11--> 00:35:13

the adab of knowledge and the gatherings of

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

il. He sat down.

00:35:26--> 00:35:27

Go out on it and say to the

00:35:27--> 00:35:30

students that whoever have a question specifically regarding

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

the Quran

00:35:31--> 00:35:32

and its and its proof,

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

They have permission to enter into the home

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

and have their questions answered.

00:35:41--> 00:35:43

That a large group of students came came

00:35:43--> 00:35:44

and they bought the whole house in the

00:35:44--> 00:35:45

surrounding rooms as well.

00:35:50--> 00:35:52

They asked him a question, he answered it.

00:35:52--> 00:35:55

They asked the next the next question, and

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

then he answered

00:35:56--> 00:35:58

it. After he answered all their questions,

00:35:58--> 00:35:59

he he said,

00:36:03--> 00:36:05

That go and clear the paths and you

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

may now be.

00:36:06--> 00:36:07

Those students left.

00:36:08--> 00:36:09

He then said to Abu Sadeh,

00:36:16--> 00:36:18

Now whoever has a question regarding the Quran

00:36:18--> 00:36:19

and tafsir,

00:36:20--> 00:36:21

it's their turn.

00:36:21--> 00:36:23

So the tafsir students came in

00:36:23--> 00:36:25

and they asked their questions and they asked

00:36:25--> 00:36:27

and asked and he said he answered and

00:36:27--> 00:36:29

after he was done, he then said to

00:36:29--> 00:36:31

them head outside clear the roads.

00:36:32--> 00:36:34

The next group of people

00:36:43--> 00:36:46

Now whoever has questions regarding halal, haram, and,

00:36:46--> 00:36:48

it's your turn. You guys you guys can

00:36:48--> 00:36:50

come in. And the next group of people

00:36:50--> 00:36:51

came in. They asked and asked and asked.

00:36:51--> 00:36:53

The whole room and the house was full.

00:36:53--> 00:36:55

After they were done, he said, you guys

00:36:55--> 00:36:56

head out.

00:36:56--> 00:36:59

And then, ibn Abbas radiAllahu An said to

00:36:59--> 00:37:01

Abu Abu Salah, now go outside and announce

00:37:01--> 00:37:04

that those people that have questions regarding inheritances

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

and anything related to that, it's their turn.

00:37:06--> 00:37:07

They can come in.

00:37:08--> 00:37:10

And then he said, go outside and inform

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

them

00:37:16--> 00:37:19

And whoever has a question regarding language,

00:37:19--> 00:37:22

the unique words used by the Arabs,

00:37:23--> 00:37:25

the the the mastery or the science of

00:37:25--> 00:37:28

poetry and how to, you know, untangle their

00:37:28--> 00:37:30

meanings, it's their turn. They could come.

00:37:30--> 00:37:33

And 1 by 1, boom, they keep they

00:37:33--> 00:37:34

ask their questions.

00:37:34--> 00:37:36

The narrator at the end said it was

00:37:36--> 00:37:39

such a magnificent day that probably one of

00:37:39--> 00:37:40

the most honorable

00:37:40--> 00:37:43

moments for the entire Quraish of the past

00:37:43--> 00:37:44

and present.

00:37:44--> 00:37:45

It was such a scene

00:37:46--> 00:37:48

that that he was just on fire.

00:37:48--> 00:37:50

Bring the next appoint bring the next group

00:37:50--> 00:37:52

of people, ask away. Bring the next group

00:37:52--> 00:37:54

of people, ask away. Bring the next group

00:37:54--> 00:37:56

of people, ask away.

00:37:59--> 00:38:01

Ibn Abi Mualikha says that ibn Abbas radiAllahu

00:38:01--> 00:38:04

an one day while addressing his students. He

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

said,

00:38:11--> 00:38:12

that human beings

00:38:13--> 00:38:15

are gone, they no longer exist. Referring to

00:38:15--> 00:38:16

the sahaba

00:38:16--> 00:38:17

who

00:38:17--> 00:38:19

were worthy of even being called humans, who

00:38:19--> 00:38:22

live morally and ethically and understand

00:38:23--> 00:38:25

understood their purpose of being on this world.

00:38:25--> 00:38:28

Nas Nas is a distortion of the word

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

Nas

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

and all that remains is some distorted version

00:38:31--> 00:38:32

of the human being.

00:38:37--> 00:38:39

Someone asked him what does this word nastnas

00:38:39--> 00:38:40

mean? It's not a common word in the

00:38:40--> 00:38:43

Arabic language. What does this mean? So he

00:38:43--> 00:38:44

said this refers to people

00:38:45--> 00:38:47

who are actually human beings but they don't

00:38:47--> 00:38:49

they resemble human beings but they're not real

00:38:49--> 00:38:50

human beings.

00:38:51--> 00:38:52

They don't act like them.

00:38:53--> 00:38:54

And actually,

00:38:54--> 00:38:56

the interesting thing is that

00:38:57--> 00:38:59

before we even go on the path of

00:38:59--> 00:39:02

seeking knowledge or becoming students, one of

00:39:02--> 00:39:03

the first accomplishments

00:39:04--> 00:39:06

is to become a good human being.

00:39:08--> 00:39:10

Many of the scholars, this is what they

00:39:10--> 00:39:12

dedicated their lives to, not creating scholars,

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

not even creating worshipers.

00:39:15--> 00:39:17

They were trying to create decent humans.

00:39:19--> 00:39:20

This was one of his

00:39:21--> 00:39:23

main goals. He would always say this,

00:39:23--> 00:39:25

that that whoever wants to become a scholar

00:39:25--> 00:39:26

they may go there,

00:39:27--> 00:39:29

whoever wants to, you know, have fun and

00:39:29--> 00:39:31

chill they can go over there

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

Whoever ever wants to be a human being,

00:39:36--> 00:39:38

whoever has a desire of becoming a better

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

human being, they can come to my gathering.

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

We focus on creating human beings.

00:39:42--> 00:39:44

Therefore, his focus

00:39:44--> 00:39:46

was on ada etiquettes.

00:39:46--> 00:39:48

How do you sit? How do you talk?

00:39:48--> 00:39:50

How do you carry yourself? Everything he would

00:39:50--> 00:39:52

highlight like the ada.

00:39:53--> 00:39:56

He would focus on the hearts of his

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

students

00:39:57--> 00:39:58

removing arrogance

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

and confronting

00:40:01--> 00:40:03

it, removing their jealousy and confronting it.

00:40:04--> 00:40:06

Dealing with their love for prestige

00:40:07--> 00:40:09

and confronting it. But how do we remove

00:40:09--> 00:40:11

these things? Because an because an insan

00:40:11--> 00:40:13

can't really be an insan

00:40:13--> 00:40:15

until you understand why you were created and

00:40:15--> 00:40:16

what your purpose is.

00:40:17--> 00:40:20

Most of us have fallen under the spell

00:40:20--> 00:40:21

that we

00:40:22--> 00:40:23

exist

00:40:23--> 00:40:25

for material means.

00:40:26--> 00:40:28

We believe somewhere in our heart, somewhere in

00:40:28--> 00:40:30

the back of the mind, there's this idea

00:40:30--> 00:40:32

that I was created for a greater purpose.

00:40:32--> 00:40:33

But the way we carry ourselves

00:40:34--> 00:40:35

is

00:40:35--> 00:40:36

so material

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

and in a royal fashion that we forgot

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

that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala created us as

00:40:42--> 00:40:44

His slaves first and foremost.

00:40:49--> 00:40:50

That's what creates insan.

00:40:51--> 00:40:52

Right?

00:40:58--> 00:41:00

One scholar, he captured this in a very

00:41:00--> 00:41:01

beautiful

00:41:01--> 00:41:02

statement.

00:41:06--> 00:41:08

The word just like my word just like

00:41:08--> 00:41:09

my mind will catch it.

00:41:16--> 00:41:18

I slipped my mic. It's a really good

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

statement good statement. Tadako stopped working. He knows

00:41:21--> 00:41:22

this urdo statement.

00:41:22--> 00:41:24

So if you ever hear him throwing some,

00:41:24--> 00:41:25

I'm throwing some. This might be one of

00:41:25--> 00:41:26

the statements that he uses.

00:41:27--> 00:41:28

Okay. I'll see if I remember and I'll

00:41:28--> 00:41:30

share with you guys. The concept of it

00:41:30--> 00:41:32

is that you know that you have to

00:41:32--> 00:41:33

be an Abidin servant of Allah

00:41:36--> 00:41:38

right and that's how you grow as a

00:41:38--> 00:41:39

human being.

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

Saydna

00:41:42--> 00:41:44

Abdulhaman I'm sorry, Umar ibn Khattab

00:41:45--> 00:41:46

acknowledged

00:41:46--> 00:41:47

the

00:41:47--> 00:41:48

knowledge

00:41:48--> 00:41:49

and,

00:41:50--> 00:41:52

wisdom of ibn of ibn al Ahan. He

00:41:52--> 00:41:53

was

00:41:53--> 00:41:54

senior to him

00:41:55--> 00:41:59

in age age by decades, way older

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

than

00:42:01--> 00:42:03

him. And ibn Ab if Omar

00:42:04--> 00:42:05

had a majlis ashura,

00:42:05--> 00:42:07

a group of people that he would consult

00:42:07--> 00:42:09

with consult with critical matters that related to

00:42:09--> 00:42:10

the ummah

00:42:11--> 00:42:13

regularly and most of the people that people

00:42:13--> 00:42:15

that that masjid alshura of his

00:42:16--> 00:42:17

were ashabu badar.

00:42:18--> 00:42:20

These were companions that are fought side by

00:42:20--> 00:42:21

side with Rasool Allah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam

00:42:21--> 00:42:23

in the battle of badar and

00:42:23--> 00:42:24

among

00:42:24--> 00:42:26

these Syrians was this young kid, ibn

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

Abbas

00:42:31--> 00:42:34

Some of the sahaba more seniors, they kind

00:42:34--> 00:42:36

of kind of is an objection that why

00:42:36--> 00:42:38

is it that this young man sits with

00:42:38--> 00:42:40

us? Look at the seniors here and if

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

here and if he's here then why aren't

00:42:42--> 00:42:44

our kids here? Why does ibn Abbas get

00:42:44--> 00:42:46

to be here? Why aren't the other can't

00:42:46--> 00:42:46

the other kids?

00:42:47--> 00:42:48

This is not a place for kids. This

00:42:48--> 00:42:50

is a place for adults. We're talking about

00:42:50--> 00:42:52

political affairs, ethical affairs, and application.

00:42:56--> 00:42:59

For was for wasir ibn Abbas ibn

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

Abbas

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

ibn

00:43:02--> 00:43:05

Umar Gaddafi Allahuwan wanted to establish why he

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

trusted ibn Abbas radiallahuan and the depth in

00:43:07--> 00:43:08

his the depth in his

00:43:10--> 00:43:11

so one day

00:43:11--> 00:43:13

he gathered them all together and he did

00:43:15--> 00:43:16

a question.

00:43:21--> 00:43:24

Today I shall present a scenario that will

00:43:24--> 00:43:25

clear

00:43:25--> 00:43:27

why we include Ibn Abbas

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

in these gatherings.

00:43:35--> 00:43:37

He presented the Surah

00:43:39--> 00:43:40

And when the hub of Allah Subhan of

00:43:40--> 00:43:42

Allah Subhan arrived in victory.

00:43:46--> 00:43:48

And people enter into the folds of the

00:43:48--> 00:43:48

faith,

00:43:50--> 00:43:52

wave after wave, group group

00:43:54--> 00:43:56

after. So glorify your Lord with His praise.

00:43:57--> 00:43:58

And seek repentance

00:43:58--> 00:43:59

and repent.

00:44:01--> 00:44:03

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala is the one who

00:44:03--> 00:44:04

often accepts repentance.

00:44:06--> 00:44:07

He asked them, tell me what is this?

00:44:07--> 00:44:11

What is this what is this Surah referring

00:44:11--> 00:44:13

to? Give me the tafsir explanation of the

00:44:13--> 00:44:13

Surah.

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

So some of them said it means just

00:44:23--> 00:44:25

some to that but that group of them

00:44:25--> 00:44:27

said it's very obvious that when people start

00:44:27--> 00:44:29

accepting islam in great numbers that glorify Allah

00:44:29--> 00:44:30

by Allah and it's

00:44:32--> 00:44:35

after everyone gave their statement, Umar radiAllahu

00:44:36--> 00:44:37

ibn Abbas he said

00:44:38--> 00:44:40

you tell me. What do you see in

00:44:40--> 00:44:40

this Surah?

00:44:42--> 00:44:45

Ibn Abbas radiAllahu anhu he said

00:44:46--> 00:44:47

this Surah is indicative

00:44:49--> 00:44:52

to the departing of Rasulullah salallahu alaihi wasallam

00:44:55--> 00:44:57

That his death was an error

00:44:57--> 00:44:58

because

00:44:59--> 00:45:01

after the conquest of Makkah and people accepting

00:45:01--> 00:45:03

Islam wave after wave after way his mission

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

had been complete.

00:45:06--> 00:45:09

Allah instructed him instructed him to do and

00:45:09--> 00:45:10

and and do tasbih

00:45:11--> 00:45:13

because that is the end and affair

00:45:13--> 00:45:14

of the

00:45:15--> 00:45:16

that you dedicate the last part of your

00:45:16--> 00:45:18

life to tasbih, tahmeed

00:45:19--> 00:45:21

and you ask Allah for forgiveness for any

00:45:21--> 00:45:24

shortcomings, any opportunities that were missed, not doing

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

not doing thing they should have been done.

00:45:26--> 00:45:27

That is the thought in itself was a

00:45:27--> 00:45:30

sign that the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam's

00:45:30--> 00:45:32

life was coming to an end. And Umar

00:45:33--> 00:45:35

agreed and said, this is why I keep

00:45:35--> 00:45:36

it. I keep it because he is something

00:45:36--> 00:45:37

through the wisdom

00:45:38--> 00:45:40

that was granted to him as a result

00:45:40--> 00:45:41

of the dua, the dua of Ras

00:45:47--> 00:45:48

Abbas, his father,

00:45:49--> 00:45:51

saw that his son was close to Umar

00:45:51--> 00:45:53

Rabi. Umar was a part of all these

00:45:53--> 00:45:54

special gatherings.

00:45:55--> 00:45:58

So he gave his son some advice.

00:45:58--> 00:46:00

He knew that everyone had their eyes locked

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

on him. Why is this guy so close?

00:46:02--> 00:46:03

They didn't understand.

00:46:05--> 00:46:06

Abbas radiAllahu an

00:46:06--> 00:46:07

he said,

00:46:08--> 00:46:09

Yeah, O my dear son,

00:46:11--> 00:46:12

that Umar

00:46:12--> 00:46:13

keeps you close.

00:46:14--> 00:46:16

So if you're going to stay in that

00:46:16--> 00:46:18

special gathering and be a part of the

00:46:18--> 00:46:19

advisors of of Umar then

00:46:21--> 00:46:24

hold on very carefully and firmly to 3

00:46:24--> 00:46:24

advices.

00:46:33--> 00:46:36

Never expose any of his secrets. If he

00:46:36--> 00:46:38

says something to you,

00:46:38--> 00:46:39

keep it to you. Don't tell

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

anyone.

00:46:44--> 00:46:47

Never backbite anyone, anyone in his press.

00:46:51--> 00:46:52

And do not not

00:46:52--> 00:46:55

let him find you speaking a lie.

00:46:56--> 00:46:58

Always speak the truth. That's the of being

00:46:58--> 00:46:59

in that gathering.

00:47:01--> 00:47:03

Sayyidina Abdullah Abdullah ibn Abbas alhuwan

00:47:04--> 00:47:06

during the khilafa of Uthman radiallahuhan

00:47:06--> 00:47:08

also served as an advisor.

00:47:12--> 00:47:14

Some people requested that he lead a Hajj

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

group from Medina.

00:47:15--> 00:47:18

He sought permission from Uthman radiallahu an and

00:47:18--> 00:47:20

went to perform his hamard Hajj. It was

00:47:20--> 00:47:22

during that time that Uthman

00:47:23--> 00:47:24

was martyred.

00:47:26--> 00:47:27

When he came back

00:47:27--> 00:47:29

he then stood by the side of,

00:47:31--> 00:47:33

Ali bin Abi Talib radiya bhaman

00:47:34--> 00:47:35

and he served

00:47:36--> 00:47:38

him and was an advisor to Sayyidina Ali

00:47:38--> 00:47:40

ibn Abi Talib radiAllahuhan as well.

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

Throughout his

00:47:42--> 00:47:44

time in Madinah Munawwara and while traveling,

00:47:45--> 00:47:46

he became a symbol

00:47:48--> 00:47:50

of one that was deeply and madly in

00:47:50--> 00:47:52

love with the sunnah of rasulullah salallahu alaihi

00:47:52--> 00:47:54

wa sallam, acted upon every teaching

00:47:56--> 00:47:58

and he embodied the lessons that he learned

00:47:58--> 00:47:59

from the prophet of Allah.

00:48:01--> 00:48:04

Abu Labin Malaykha narrates that once we were

00:48:04--> 00:48:06

traveling with ibn Abbas radiAllahu an from Makkah,

00:48:06--> 00:48:08

Makkah, Makkah Madinah.

00:48:09--> 00:48:11

So at night when we would settle down

00:48:11--> 00:48:12

everyone would go to sleep.

00:48:13--> 00:48:15

I would see Abna Abbas radiAllahu an standing

00:48:15--> 00:48:17

in the middle hours in the darkness of

00:48:17--> 00:48:18

the night

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

crying in

00:48:20--> 00:48:21

salah

00:48:22--> 00:48:24

repeating the same ayah again and again.

00:48:32--> 00:48:34

And I saw him one night reading this

00:48:34--> 00:48:35

ayah.

00:48:37--> 00:48:40

He would continue to repeat the verse again

00:48:40--> 00:48:40

and again

00:48:41--> 00:48:43

and cry out loud as he was reciting

00:48:45--> 00:48:47

it until Fajr salallahu alaihiq came in.

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

It wasn't just knowledge,

00:48:49--> 00:48:50

it was practice,

00:48:51--> 00:48:53

it was embodiment of that.

00:48:54--> 00:48:55

One time

00:48:56--> 00:48:57

ibn Abbas

00:48:58--> 00:48:59

went for Hajj

00:48:59--> 00:49:02

and that same year Mu'awiya radiAllahu an who

00:49:02--> 00:49:04

was a khalifa also arrived for Hajj.

00:49:05--> 00:49:07

You would imagine the khalifa would have the

00:49:07--> 00:49:09

greatest group of people like when he's doing

00:49:09--> 00:49:11

tawaf, all of his guards and all of

00:49:11--> 00:49:13

his the people that are there to facilitate

00:49:13--> 00:49:15

his journey and be there to, you know,

00:49:15--> 00:49:17

to advise him and and help him in

00:49:17--> 00:49:20

any way needed. So Mu'avi radiAllahu an was

00:49:20--> 00:49:23

doing tawaf with a large group of people

00:49:23--> 00:49:25

and while he was doing tawaf of the

00:49:25--> 00:49:27

Kaaba, Sayidin Abdullah bin Abbas

00:49:27--> 00:49:29

entered into the Haram

00:49:36--> 00:49:37

The number of people that he had around

00:49:37--> 00:49:38

him

00:49:39--> 00:49:41

was multiples of what the khalifa had around

00:49:41--> 00:49:41

him.

00:49:43--> 00:49:44

They were all students of knowledge.

00:49:47--> 00:49:50

And ibn Abbas radiAllahu 1 walked around the

00:49:50--> 00:49:52

Kaaba with beautiful sight. Even the khalibas thinking,

00:49:52--> 00:49:53

What's

00:49:53--> 00:49:54

going on here?

00:49:55--> 00:49:57

That ibn Abbas radiAllahuan has so many people

00:49:57--> 00:49:58

around him.

00:50:02--> 00:50:04

He continued to serve

00:50:04--> 00:50:06

and played a very important role during the

00:50:06--> 00:50:08

khalaq of Ali radiAllahuan

00:50:08--> 00:50:10

in dealing with the Khawarij.

00:50:11--> 00:50:13

This was a group of people that rebelled

00:50:13--> 00:50:13

against

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

Ali radhiallahuwan

00:50:15--> 00:50:16

and made all sorts of

00:50:16--> 00:50:17

false accusations

00:50:18--> 00:50:21

against Ali radiallahu an. They were true problem

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

makers.

00:50:22--> 00:50:23

Ali allahu an

00:50:23--> 00:50:26

unfortunately had to wage war against them and

00:50:26--> 00:50:28

I say unfortunate because anytime any one group

00:50:28--> 00:50:29

of Muslims

00:50:29--> 00:50:31

are against another group of Muslims,

00:50:32--> 00:50:33

It's an unfortunate state. Before

00:50:35--> 00:50:37

Ali radiAllahu an

00:50:38--> 00:50:39

met him in the battlefield,

00:50:40--> 00:50:43

Ibn Abbas radiallahu an, he requested Ali that

00:50:43--> 00:50:44

give me permission to go and deal with

00:50:44--> 00:50:45

these people.

00:50:46--> 00:50:47

Ali radiallahu an said, what are you gonna

00:50:47--> 00:50:50

do? He said, I'll they claim to love

00:50:50--> 00:50:52

the Quran and sunnah, these rebels, they claim

00:50:52--> 00:50:54

to be extremists and that they will act

00:50:54--> 00:50:56

upon anything the Quran and sunnah says. I

00:50:56--> 00:50:58

don't want to handle these people. Send me.

00:50:59--> 00:51:00

I can deal with them.

00:51:01--> 00:51:04

Ibn Abbas radiAllahu anhu, he approached them.

00:51:05--> 00:51:07

When they saw him they weren't too happy

00:51:07--> 00:51:09

because they knew he was on Ali side.

00:51:12--> 00:51:14

What do you want? He said, well I

00:51:14--> 00:51:15

want you to engage with me. You say

00:51:15--> 00:51:17

you love the Quran and sunnah. So if

00:51:17--> 00:51:19

I share with you Quran and sunnah, you

00:51:19--> 00:51:20

should have no problems. You'll listen to me,

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

won't you?

00:51:22--> 00:51:23

He said, yes, we will.

00:51:24--> 00:51:26

He then asked them, okay. Tell me.

00:51:26--> 00:51:29

What what problems do you have with Ali

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

radiAllahu

00:51:30--> 00:51:31

an? What are the issues?

00:51:32--> 00:51:34

They said, well, we have 3 main concerns.

00:51:34--> 00:51:35

The first one

00:51:36--> 00:51:36

is

00:51:37--> 00:51:38

he appoints arbitrators

00:51:39--> 00:51:40

of the deen when there should be no

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

arbiter.

00:51:41--> 00:51:44

The matter should be basically clear cut up

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

either this or that.

00:51:45--> 00:51:47

Do you guys understand? If the Quran says

00:51:47--> 00:51:49

this, this should be the outcome. If the

00:51:49--> 00:51:50

Quran says this should be the outcome, there

00:51:51--> 00:51:53

should no there'll be no arbitration where we

00:51:53--> 00:51:54

look for a middle ground.

00:51:54--> 00:51:55

I

00:51:55--> 00:51:57

said okay. What else is there?

00:52:00--> 00:52:02

They said well Ali radiallahu an waged war

00:52:02--> 00:52:05

against Aisha radiallahu an and Mu'ali radiallahu an

00:52:05--> 00:52:06

and he did not and he did not

00:52:06--> 00:52:08

is not ready to capture any slaves That

00:52:08--> 00:52:10

goes against what the prophet sallallahu anaihi wa

00:52:10--> 00:52:11

sallam did.

00:52:11--> 00:52:12

Capture any slaves.

00:52:13--> 00:52:15

What happened to the maidens? They should have

00:52:15--> 00:52:16

all been taken as prisoners.

00:52:16--> 00:52:18

I said okay.

00:52:18--> 00:52:19

What else is there?

00:52:20--> 00:52:20

He said, Ali

00:52:22--> 00:52:24

doesn't the title Ameerul mumineen.

00:52:25--> 00:52:27

Why does he not use that title?

00:52:29--> 00:52:31

Ibn Abbas radiAllahu anhu when you heard their

00:52:31--> 00:52:32

complaints, for those of you who can read

00:52:32--> 00:52:34

in between the lines, they're just being petty.

00:52:35--> 00:52:37

These guys are being petty, there was no

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

real complaint here.

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

1, he

00:52:41--> 00:52:42

broke them apart.

00:52:43--> 00:52:45

He said you say you say Ali radiAllahu

00:52:45--> 00:52:48

an appointed an arbiter between them. What if

00:52:48--> 00:52:50

I prove to you the Quran establishes the

00:52:50--> 00:52:51

principle of having arbiters

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

in matters of dispute?

00:52:54--> 00:52:56

They said where? They said where? He recited

00:52:56--> 00:52:57

the ayah.

00:53:08--> 00:53:10

The Quran tells us that you can establish

00:53:10--> 00:53:11

a third party to to

00:53:12--> 00:53:14

an understanding of a matter that they may

00:53:14--> 00:53:15

be ambiguity regarding.

00:53:16--> 00:53:17

You're not you're not you're not you're not

00:53:17--> 00:53:17

you're not you're not

00:53:18--> 00:53:19

you're not

00:53:19--> 00:53:21

you're not you're

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

not

00:53:28--> 00:53:29

the value.

00:53:31--> 00:53:33

You bring 2 people and ask them, give

00:53:33--> 00:53:34

us give us the travel camel in this

00:53:34--> 00:53:36

area. That person will say it's $3,000. Now

00:53:36--> 00:53:38

you need to give $3,000. This is what

00:53:38--> 00:53:39

we call this is what we call this.

00:53:39--> 00:53:41

It's done through establishing

00:53:41--> 00:53:43

a third party who can evaluate it.

00:53:56--> 00:53:58

Is it wrong to have an arbiter come

00:53:58--> 00:54:02

in to prevent war or result in thousands

00:54:02--> 00:54:04

of people dying when Islam gives us permission

00:54:04--> 00:54:06

to establish arbiters to under to understand you

00:54:06--> 00:54:08

of a of a rabbit

00:54:09--> 00:54:10

that doesn't equal to anything more than a

00:54:10--> 00:54:12

small amount small amount.

00:54:12--> 00:54:13

Let's say you're right.

00:54:15--> 00:54:16

Look at the,

00:54:17--> 00:54:18

the deep depth

00:54:18--> 00:54:20

and then he then he said you say

00:54:20--> 00:54:22

that Ali radhiallahu an did not did not

00:54:22--> 00:54:25

take any against Aisha radhiallahu anah

00:54:25--> 00:54:27

and Mawi radiAllahu anha.

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

Would it make you happy make you happy?

00:54:33--> 00:54:36

Made Aisha Radiallahu Anha a slave? Is that

00:54:36--> 00:54:37

what you're asking for?

00:54:42--> 00:54:43

If you say yes, I would say you're

00:54:43--> 00:54:44

disbelievers. Disbelievers.

00:54:44--> 00:54:47

Disrespecting the family members and the mothers of

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

the believers.

00:54:51--> 00:54:53

And if you say that she is not

00:54:53--> 00:54:53

our mother,

00:54:56--> 00:54:57

Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala

00:55:02--> 00:55:04

Allah says that the wives of the Prophet

00:55:04--> 00:55:05

of Allah are your mothers

00:55:09--> 00:55:10

Now you make the decision.

00:55:11--> 00:55:12

Are we done with this? Yes

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

and then at the end he said that

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

you said that Ali radhiallahu an

00:55:17--> 00:55:19

used to use the term Amirul mumineen

00:55:20--> 00:55:21

He didn't use that title.

00:55:22--> 00:55:24

So let me when the prophet sallallahu alaihi

00:55:24--> 00:55:25

wa sallam

00:55:25--> 00:55:27

was in negotiation with the Quraysh

00:55:28--> 00:55:30

on the terms of the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah

00:55:30--> 00:55:32

and finally when there was an agreement and

00:55:32--> 00:55:34

the document was document was being

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

the final document said

00:55:48--> 00:55:50

The fact that he removed he removed your

00:55:50--> 00:55:51

Surah, not take away from him that he

00:55:51--> 00:55:52

was Rasulullah.

00:55:53--> 00:55:54

It never did.

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

If he chose not always not to be

00:55:55--> 00:55:57

a title, that doesn't make a makafin.

00:55:58--> 00:55:59

And if that makes a makafin unworthy of

00:55:59--> 00:56:01

you waging war and war against them, then

00:56:01--> 00:56:03

what about this hadith right here?

00:56:03--> 00:56:06

They say this one interaction of Ibn Abbas

00:56:07--> 00:56:10

resulted in 20,000 of them doing tawba.

00:56:11--> 00:56:14

20 of them did Tawba from this one

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

interaction

00:56:15--> 00:56:15

of his

00:56:16--> 00:56:16

and

00:56:18--> 00:56:19

then Ali ibn Abi Talib

00:56:20--> 00:56:22

when he did wage war against him there

00:56:22--> 00:56:24

were there were no more few 1,000 left,

00:56:24--> 00:56:25

3 or 4,000 that he actually met in

00:56:25--> 00:56:26

the battlefield.

00:56:27--> 00:56:29

Towards the end the end of his life,

00:56:30--> 00:56:32

ibn Abbas radiAllahu anhu an

00:56:33--> 00:56:34

relocated.

00:56:35--> 00:56:37

He first went from Medina to Makkah

00:56:38--> 00:56:40

because because there were turbulences

00:56:40--> 00:56:44

and the Umayyads became very bold against against

00:56:44--> 00:56:47

the family of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam and

00:56:47--> 00:56:47

also

00:56:49--> 00:56:52

against, Abin Zubair radiAllahu an in Makkah. So

00:56:52--> 00:56:54

he left Madinah and arrived in Makkah.

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

Went to Makkah.

00:56:59--> 00:57:00

He didn't want to

00:57:01--> 00:57:03

give bay'ah to Ablavan sudair

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

Because he knew he knew that it would

00:57:06--> 00:57:08

have so much attention because the family members

00:57:08--> 00:57:10

of the prophet of Allah, if they chose

00:57:10--> 00:57:12

anyone's side, it would be the misstatement and

00:57:12--> 00:57:15

would potentially even lead to a full blown

00:57:15--> 00:57:16

war.

00:57:16--> 00:57:18

That that the mayyids would say that if

00:57:18--> 00:57:20

the family members of the prophet of Allah

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

are now with

00:57:22--> 00:57:24

Abdul Zubair who is based out of Makkah,

00:57:24--> 00:57:27

then everyone's gonna follow them and they'll amass

00:57:27--> 00:57:29

a large false following and become a prophet.

00:57:29--> 00:57:30

Ibn Abbas

00:57:30--> 00:57:32

said I don't want to be a part

00:57:32--> 00:57:32

of any of this.

00:57:33--> 00:57:35

So with a few others,

00:57:36--> 00:57:37

he then relocated

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

just outside

00:57:39--> 00:57:40

I mean to the south

00:57:40--> 00:57:42

to a place called Taif.

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

We went to Thayf

00:57:47--> 00:57:48

on our last trip

00:57:49--> 00:57:51

we had the honor of standing at the

00:57:51--> 00:57:54

grave of Abdullah ibn Abbas radiAllahu an

00:57:55--> 00:57:58

Hubrul Ummah, scholar of the Ummah.

00:57:59--> 00:58:01

This is where he breathed his

00:58:05--> 00:58:07

Imam Bahir narrates an incident that occurred when

00:58:07--> 00:58:08

Ibn Abbas

00:58:08--> 00:58:09

passed away

00:58:10--> 00:58:12

and he narrates it from so many different

00:58:12--> 00:58:14

turuk and so many different chains. At the

00:58:14--> 00:58:15

end of it he says,

00:58:19--> 00:58:21

That this incident that occurred is mutawadir.

00:58:22--> 00:58:23

It's undeniable.

00:58:24--> 00:58:26

It's inconceivable that a group of people gathered

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

to lie in this regard.

00:58:28--> 00:58:29

What is that

00:58:32--> 00:58:33

story? That

00:58:38--> 00:58:41

That a bird came flying after he passed

00:58:41--> 00:58:43

away and entered into his his

00:58:44--> 00:58:45

and entered into him.

00:58:46--> 00:58:46

And

00:58:47--> 00:58:49

they did not see the bird leave. No

00:58:49--> 00:58:50

one saw it. Basically, they saw it cut

00:58:50--> 00:58:53

through the crowd and enter into his coffin

00:58:53--> 00:58:54

and disappear and no one saw it like

00:58:54--> 00:58:55

it.

00:58:57--> 00:58:59

And when he was buried ibn Abbas

00:59:09--> 00:59:11

they heard an ayah being recited right at

00:59:11--> 00:59:13

the corner of the grave

00:59:13--> 00:59:15

and no one knew who recited it. Everyone

00:59:15--> 00:59:16

was looking left and right. Where is it

00:59:16--> 00:59:18

coming from? The sound, they didn't know.

00:59:20--> 00:59:22

The aya they heard being recited.

00:59:39--> 00:59:40

Oh, the content soul,

00:59:41--> 00:59:44

return to your Lord in a state of

00:59:44--> 00:59:46

being pleased and also pleased

00:59:46--> 00:59:47

with.

00:59:48--> 00:59:49

So enter

00:59:49--> 00:59:50

with my servants

00:59:51--> 00:59:53

and enter into Jannah.

00:59:54--> 00:59:56

May Allah elevate the Maqam

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

of Sayyidina Abdullah bin Abbas radiAllahu an and

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

fill his grave with nur

01:00:01--> 01:00:03

and allow us to learn from his legacy,

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

to learn

01:00:06--> 01:00:09

the adab of alm, thirst and for knowledge,

01:00:12--> 01:00:13

the lesson of

01:00:14--> 01:00:15

depth.

01:00:15--> 01:00:16

He wasn't a

01:00:17--> 01:00:19

shallow person, he was a very deep person

01:00:19--> 01:00:21

in everything, the way he saw things, the

01:00:21--> 01:00:23

way he studied things, the way he analyzed

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

things.

01:00:24--> 01:00:25

May Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala allow us to

01:00:25--> 01:00:27

May He give us an honorable death.

01:00:25--> 01:00:27

May He give us an honorable death.
