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

a my bad

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

from the family members of Rasulullah sallallahu Thani, he was sent him

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

there were four particular individuals

00:00:32--> 00:00:39

who were described as resembling the visa Allahu alayhi wa sallam very closely

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

their physical features

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

or just like Rasul Allah, so Allah Allah He was sitting.

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

You have a Musa Theon ignem Hadith bin Abu Talib,

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

who has a cousin of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:00:58--> 00:01:05

And then there is with Ben Abbas and Abdul Muttalib who was another cousin of Rasul Allah that Allah Allah He was.

00:01:07--> 00:01:10

Hassan bin Ali bin Abi Talib,

00:01:11--> 00:01:16

Hassan Ali Allah Juan was the grandchild of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

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

and the fourth companion

00:01:20--> 00:01:27

whose story we will cover today is Jaffa bin Abi Talib, or the Allahu Taala

00:01:28--> 00:01:31

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said regarding him

00:01:33--> 00:01:38

i Sheba Hello Cuca healthy will ashba Holika holiday

00:01:39--> 00:01:45

that your physical features have matched mine and your character is also the same as my

00:01:47--> 00:01:49

Jaffa the Allahu Han

00:01:51--> 00:01:55

was the older brother of Satan I live in Utah live under the Allah one

00:01:56--> 00:01:59

and he was 10 years older than him in age

00:02:03--> 00:02:08

their father Alida the Allah one and Jaffa the Allahu one's father, I will call him

00:02:10--> 00:02:13

financially struggled during the years of drought in mucca mucca Rama

00:02:14--> 00:02:21

when things became very difficult Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, along with

00:02:23--> 00:02:28

his uncle our bus, approached overthought live and they said, allow us to lighten your burden.

00:02:31--> 00:02:44

I will tell you I've agreed and therefore Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he brought earlier the Allahu on into his home. And not only that, the Allah one was therefore raised like a child of a sort of loss that Allah Allah He was in

00:02:46--> 00:02:51

Java was brought into the home of Abbas or the hola Juan

00:02:52--> 00:03:02

and therefore grew up in that environment in that household and was taken care of. He is also one of the first to accept Islam.

00:03:03--> 00:03:40

Some scholars listed in the very early the early handful that accepted Islam they have his name listed there, while others like Ignaz hop have said that he was the 31st companion to accept Islam said I'm some I put him in the mid 20s 2425 around them. But most likely he was one of the earliest companions to accept Islam after the first four or five Java or the Allah Juan was there because he saw Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam and Abu Bakr Siddiq, or the Allah one knew that he was close to the sword of Lhasa Allahu alayhi wa sallam in every aspect. So he presented Islam to him.

00:03:42--> 00:03:49

When we turn to the life of Jaffa, the Allah Juan, we find some very beautiful lessons and stories.

00:03:51--> 00:03:56

We see his love and closeness to the prophets that Allahu Allah He was sitting.

00:03:57--> 00:04:43

We see the sacrifice that he took on for the sake of this Deen. And not only did he migrate once, but he migrated twice. He migrated in the earlier group of companions to Abyssinia and then later on from Abyssinia. He migrated a second time he performed hated a second time to Madina Munawwara and I've explained this issue before that his it wasn't a small sacrifice, it was a massive sacrifice. Because it basically meant you were leaving your house behind you're leaving many of your strong hard assets behind and starting, quite honestly again. So he did that once by moving to Abyssinia and then did it again when he arrived in Madina Munawwara

00:04:44--> 00:04:56

in the story of Jaffa the hola Juan we also see his intelligence. Something will study a little further when we discuss his dialogue with Nick Joshi, the ruler of Abyssinia

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

Jaffa the hola Juan was also

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

Describe by the Companions as a very generous person that when they were hungry or thirsty if they were weak, they would go to Job follow the Allah Juan. And whenever he had he would share it with them.

00:05:12--> 00:05:25

And the last big lesson from Jonathan at the Allah one that we will learn today is a Shuja I will have to tell him that he wasn't someone to hold back. Jaffa, the hola Juan was a courageous man. And when the time called for it,

00:05:27--> 00:05:39

he pushed forward and no matter how thing how hard things got, he did not pull back, he kept going forward and kept going forward. And that was a beautiful thing about these companions that difficult times didn't

00:05:40--> 00:06:03

cause them to recede backwards. When things became difficult and hard, they didn't fear because they knew that by their side was Allah subhanaw taala and they had the dua of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So let the difficulties come, we will continue to push forward and even if it means that I have to sacrifice my life, I am content

00:06:04--> 00:06:11

and happy and knowing that I will find my companionship with the prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:06:13--> 00:06:25

when things became difficult in Makkah Makara for the Companions, Jaffa the hola Juan along with his wife a smart been to a mais sought permission from a sort of loss that Allahu Allah wa salam to migrate to Abyssinia.

00:06:27--> 00:07:07

This wasn't something easy for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam neither was it easy for Jaffa. There were a few people that believed in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from his family. In Jaffa, the Allah Juan was the closest of kin to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw that in these very short five, six years that he spent with the Prophet of Allah. Jaffa, the hola Juan grew, he accepted Islam before the Prophet of Allah even arrived in the Archon. So before there was a group before there was a congregation. While there were just a few people spread throughout Morocco, Morocco, Rama he was one of those people. We have more

00:07:07--> 00:07:35

people in this gathering right now. Then the number of people that existed around Rasulullah sallallahu Lonnie he was salam. When Jaffa the Allah Juan became Muslim, right before that a lot of time had 5060 companions there. But when Java the Allah one accepted Islam, these hands full of people had the direct direct towards you, and attention of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. That's one of the beautiful things about joining

00:07:37--> 00:08:17

a teacher and a model B, when it isn't cool to join that teacher or to be by the side of that Manabi there's a special attention that you receive. There are special laws, there's a special guidance, there's a very personal, intimate relationship that exists, that along the way, small adjustments are made, that you should rethink this like this, you should reconsider this issue. And think of it that way. That personalized attention job photos are the Allahu unreceived. And now when you see that this, the see that you put into the ground is beginning to blossom. And he's become the great leader and eloquent speaker that he is. He seeks permission from Rasulullah sallallahu it was some

00:08:17--> 00:09:02

depart. And if you sort of Lohani was Saddam was very heavy in his heart. But he granted permission to Jaffa the Allah one. He migrated along with his wife, a smuggler, the Allahu Ana and some other companions to Abyssinia. Little that they know that when they arrived in Abyssinia, they thought that they were getting away from the oppression of the Quraysh. But the Quraysh were going to follow them. The police were not done because these were people of name. And suppose it honor, they could not bear the fact that the story would spread throughout Arabia, that the Quraysh were unbearable. They weren't just they were oppressive people, they couldn't take care of their own. You know how

00:09:02--> 00:09:37

like in our community, when things get tough, and you know, people are more worried about what people will say than actually dealing with the reality that what are people going to say so and so got married here? What are people going to say that someone saw person's child went to study here? What are they going to say that you know that so and so person rather than living with his parents in his same home, he took a career in another city, people are so worried about what are others going to say because there is an obsession with you know, my own image. And Quraysh couldn't accept that they were harsh. They were oppressive to their people rather than turning their attention to

00:09:37--> 00:09:59

justice, softness, fulfilling the rights of others, they sent to people immediately to go and bring these people back, do whatever it takes. Now the two people who head out on this journey, one of them is Ahmed have done to us who later on becomes Muslim, not the Allah one. And the second one, there is a little bit of a difference.

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

opinion among the historians. In one narration that Imam Muhammad Allahu Allah narrates, he cites the name of Amara Walid.

00:10:11--> 00:10:18

But then the second opinion, which is more common among the other sia is Abdullah bin Avira via

00:10:20--> 00:10:38

these individuals arrive in Abyssinia and I'm gonna have an OS has a relationship with the Joshi, the leader from before. He's come here multiple times for business and trade. He's an intelligent man. He knows the people around he knows the layout of the court. He knows the people that sit around the king.

00:10:39--> 00:10:56

So when he comes to Abyssinia, he doesn't come empty handed. He wants to win everyone's heart, therefore applying a little bit more pressure on the Joshi to persuade him to send the people back with him. When I'm gonna have an an OS

00:10:58--> 00:10:59

arrives in Abyssinia

00:11:01--> 00:11:41

when the Sahaba hear of this, you can imagine how terrified they are that these guys they won't leave us alone. It's like I just got out of this abusive relationship and that guy's knocking on the door again. They were terrified. They were very uncomfortable. And then they saw I'm gonna be honest with you Allah Juan's finesse how intelligent he was on the sentiment of the Allahu anha, who was one of the people that was there in Abyssinia. She narrates the full rewire of what happened. She says that Ahmed and also the hola Juan came to the court of Najafi varying gifts. And to all the people who sat in the court of Najafi from the religious folks to the political leaders. He gave

00:11:41--> 00:11:51

every one of them individual personalized gifts, including the Joshi. And there was a lot of person left in the gathering, but they had received their gift.

00:11:52--> 00:11:55

And then he began to speak.

00:11:57--> 00:11:59

He says to the Joshi

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

that there are some people in your community who will have run away from our community.

00:12:07--> 00:12:13

They turned away from the religion of our forefathers, and they cause disruption in our community.

00:12:14--> 00:12:35

These are people who are young and they're not too intelligent. They're not thinking smart. They're not capable of making their own decisions wisely. So I come to you on behalf of my community, asking you to do the right thing and send them back to my karma karma under my possession.

00:12:38--> 00:13:02

The Joshi he turned to his advisors, and they were gifted, lobbying was done. Their pockets were nice and plush. So they jumped into support Amata bras that why don't you send them back? It's not a big deal. It's inconsequential. We know this person. What he's saying is right, let's not take this burden, Let's not break an existing relationship.

00:13:05--> 00:13:18

The Joshi became very angry, and he said by Allah, I will not send them back until I call them and I asked them of what has been attributed towards them.

00:13:19--> 00:14:00

And this is such a beautiful statement of is because when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent the companions to harbor Shah, he said that I am sending you there because in those lands is a just ruler. There is a just king that resides there. And the Joshi statement shows his justice, that I will not give these people back well as Allahu mamma Lucia la him until I know what has been attributed. Is this true or is it not? So he tells these two people you guys stay so you guys stay here stay put. And he sends a messenger that called the Muslims on salamander the Allahu Allah says that the messenger of Najafi came, and everyone was worried and scared, what's going to happen next,

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

what's going to happen next? They knew that they actually wouldn't give them an opportunity to speak. So before they even left their homes, they said that Joshua, you will be the spokesperson, one of the earliest to accept Islam. Someone who gained instead of being directly under Rasulullah sallallahu, ala he was a relative of the Prophet of Allah said Allahu Allah He was sent him. And this shows us that they weren't hungry for leadership. I mean, this was a big moment. This is a spokesman opportunity. This is like being invited by the House, the Senate to the White House that come and speak your truth. This is where everyone wants to run forward for that photo op and to be

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

cited in the newspaper and to have their name plastered all over media, to take a picture and then to brag with that picture to build your own personal relationships and open up other business opportunities for yourself for the next rest of your life. But that's not what they did. They understood the stakes were high here. If we have one person to represent us, and that person will speak the truth not

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

person's responsibility is to convince the Joshi of our case, then we need to appoint the most appropriate individual for this task. We need to find someone that's qualified. We need to find someone with seniority. We want someone who represents the Prophet of Allah and every manner Jaffa taught him.

00:15:21--> 00:15:25

While I had to call him a hardened writer who no one will speak except for him

00:15:27--> 00:15:30

for the hub not in the GRC, we went to the Joshy

00:15:31--> 00:15:33

salamander, the Aloha says.

00:15:35--> 00:15:36

And we sat around him.

00:15:38--> 00:15:42

And we saw up the love in a bit of VR in Ahmedabad and is also sitting there.

00:15:45--> 00:15:54

Now Joshi then spoke and said, What is this new religion of yours? You left the religion of your forefathers?

00:15:55--> 00:15:58

And you did not enter into our deen you have your own.

00:15:59--> 00:16:00

Tell me about your religion.

00:16:02--> 00:16:51

Jonathan Muttalib about the hola Juan delivers an epic speech. One to be studied and memorized by any person, whoever desires to represent Islam to non Muslims. Anyone that wants to walk the path of activism, anyone that wants to stand in front of the world and actually say what Islam is because Muslims will be given the opportunity of Java gonna be thought it. We have been given this chance in the past. We are presented with it today. And it will be presented to us for as long as this world remains. But the question is that the people who talk about Islam to non Muslims, what are they thinking? It seems as if most people that are speaking about Islam, to this greater audience, are

00:16:51--> 00:17:01

not interested in representing Islam so much as much as they are thirsty to be accepted by the audience's they stand in front of

00:17:02--> 00:17:35

there is no freedom in their heart. There's no freedom in their mind. These people are slaves, that you tell me which direction to go pull my collar this way. I'll go there and pull my collar that way. I'll go there. What do you want me to say about LGBTQ issues? What do you want me to say about secularism? What do you want me to say about liberalism? You tell me what I need to see how woke should I be? Am I allowed to wear my hijab? Or am I not allowed to wear it? I won't wear it. Am I supposed to wear like a turban? I'll do that. You want me to wear a rainbow flag? Hijab? I'll do that for you, too. You told me what am I supposed to do? This is the

00:17:36--> 00:17:42

representation of Islam that we have today, unfortunately, in the West and in the Muslim community.

00:17:44--> 00:17:53

This is what's happening today when Muslims talk about Islam at large. There is no Haumea there is no leader there is no is

00:17:54--> 00:18:31

that a person says, you know, and these questions come up every year. Part of it seems to be from a place of accommodation, some of these issues, not these issues, per se. But other issues, like should we say, should be should we say Happy Christmas, should we celebrate with our neighbors when it comes to, you know, the different the various religious festivals that we have, whether it's Easter or this or that part of it, I understand comes to not wanting to be foreign. But beyond that. There is an aspect of also just being proud. There's nothing wrong with saying that I don't celebrate this festival. This seems to be a religious festival and I hold a different faith and in

00:18:31--> 00:18:53

my faith, this festival of yours is contradictory to what we believe in. So I can respect you as a person. I can be kind to you. But as far as joining you in this festivity in any manner at all, I can't do that. That's about laying boundaries. It's about drawing the line, that this is what I can do. And this is what I won't do.

00:18:55--> 00:18:58

A similarly assimilating into another culture is important.

00:18:59--> 00:19:40

Right, not fully, it's not full assimilation, but to whatever capacity your religion allows us. It's a good thing, you dress a particular way you speak a particular way. You know, you enjoy sports, you enjoy entertainment, these are good things. But as Muslims, there will always be a line. And that line is one that is set by Allah and His Rasul solomani was as fascinating because today while I was teaching at the seminary, this was an issue that I brought up in more than one class today, this particular statement, but we should always be there to accommodate people who are either not religious at that point in their life, or are looking to be more religious. We should always be

00:19:40--> 00:19:54

there to accommodate them. But never at the same time. Should you dilute the deen that you go from accommodation to now setting the bar low, so low that that person no longer aspires for growth anymore.

00:19:55--> 00:19:57

That now you've created a new norm.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

The norm for the Muslim is

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

sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Anything below that is okay. As far as personal growth goes, we hope that everyone can slowly chug along the path of life and slowly make their way to a better place. But nowhere should we normalize something that isn't from the deen and make that the

00:20:19--> 00:20:53

This is why the other man of the past would say that when you're looking for dress, what kind of dress should you wear? Look at the Allamah of that community. When you're looking at how should you communicate with people, how do you carry yourself they would always say, look at the Anama of the community. Because the idea was that our tradition is inherited from heart to heart, where a student sees their teacher how they practice and they see their teacher how they practice and see their teachers how they practice and along the way, where adjustments are needed, they make those adjustments, but ensure that there is growth with a strong identity shift Yusuf Rahim Allah Tada.

00:20:53--> 00:21:30

One thing that he was criticized for a lot, my dear beloved teacher and mentor. One thing that he was criticized for a lot was encouraging students from the mother, NASA to go to your standard secular universities. He would encourage all students to go get their undergraduate and go get their masters and many machines on on a mount. While I studied with him, they would send these hate mail letters, those these emails and things so they would send faxes and letters written, and they were very, very rough. Some of those people would say that you are sending the scholars because they would graduate with Automedia degrees you're sending them off to shape on you're sending them to the

00:21:30--> 00:21:40

den of shaytaan you're destroying their emaan you're sending them to Gopher, and they would go on and on. I'm sure all of it was from a sincere place. We shouldn't assume ill of another person.

00:21:41--> 00:21:47

But showcase of what I'm allowed to Allah in private gatherings. He would say to us that what I am doing right now will bear fruit in the future.

00:21:49--> 00:22:03

I want to see all ama also be physicians. I want to see them as lawyers. I want to see all ama of the deen as chaplains. I want to see them in every aspect of life. This is my dream.

00:22:04--> 00:22:40

And subhanAllah Allah subhanahu wa Tada accepted him and accepted his vision to such a degree that now you see those very same people and what was the lesson the lesson was you go to the universities, go and take what you need, go and get that degree go and get that knowledge. But don't sell your soul along the way. You stay strong and pray your Salah on the campus, you make sure you're doing your job Masilela make sure you're busy with your ticket while everyone's walking around. And they're getting involved with this alpha and this omega and this betta whatever it is that they're working on, you make sure that you don't get involved with their Beta, you stay focused

00:22:40--> 00:23:09

on your MSA or an England that covenant ISOC the Islamic Association, you stick you stick with that Islamic society, you stick with your community you stick with your people. And the truth is that's life. You can't be in four walls for as long as you live in this dunya you find exposure you know even though this may be a little unrelated, but I'll share it with you. When I went to

00:23:10--> 00:23:18

Canada this two weeks ago I went to the grave of shift use of Remo law with Allah He passed away there he passed away there and buried there are two

00:23:20--> 00:23:32

and we went to give Saddam I took my children with me to and then read some Quran on his grave as well. And while we were there there was something very beautiful and fascinating that I saw the entire graveyard.

00:23:33--> 00:23:45

Everywhere I looked, there was dry grass throughout the entire graveyard except for the patch directly over the grave of use of variable log data. It was fresh plush green grass.

00:23:46--> 00:24:18

And I said to my children in that moment Look at this. If this isn't a karama, then you tell me what it cut on my eyes. If this isn't an honor from Allah subhanho wa Taala then what is this everywhere you look every grave anywhere you look left right center anywhere you look all dry brown yellow grass, and then right above his grave just for that one little area there there was this plush fresh green grass. Hola. Hola. Hola. Lahore finale him with a homie asset

00:24:19--> 00:24:29

that the owner of Allah Allah azza wa jal takes care of. And to me that freshgrass inshallah represents not just a garden above the grave, but a garden inside the grave to

00:24:30--> 00:24:59

that Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't abandon his friends, a man who dedicated his entire life, left his hometown left his country, just like DAF would have never thought about the other one. He left all of it. On his case on the command of his shift shift has occurred to him Allah Allah said to him, go to England and established the first mothers out there. Where do I go? Where's England? Never been there. Don't speak the language don't know anyone there just go. And just the Creator him Allah Allah was a visionary. You

00:25:01--> 00:25:03

One night, it was in Ramadan.

00:25:04--> 00:25:19

It was one of the odd nights the last two nights of Ramadan. She has a lie alley, he was in his modulus. I believe it was in Sahara and Bucha. And he said to one of the columns that go and call Madonna.

00:25:20--> 00:25:28

So they call Myrna Muslims and non Muslims upset to him. He said to himself, that

00:25:31--> 00:25:32

in this Mubarak night,

00:25:34--> 00:25:37

Allah subhanho wa Taala put Mubarak apart and my heart in it.

00:25:39--> 00:25:40

And you are a Mubarak person.

00:25:42--> 00:25:46

I want you to go to North America, specifically Canada

00:25:47--> 00:25:49

and serve the dean there.

00:25:50--> 00:25:59

Mana Montreal himself is like a person from small village India. Where is America? This is like, you know, in the 70s and 80s.

00:26:01--> 00:26:09

So he went back and monomers the night continue, he went back and whatever he was doing, he called him a second time. And he said, No, you must leave now.

00:26:10--> 00:26:21

Like right now pack your bags and go. So he went home, quickly gathered some of his belongings and caught a flight and arrived in Montreal, I believe it was.

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

And when he got there, didn't speak the language.

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

He got to the airport. He's saying that I'm here to do a demo of the team.

00:26:32--> 00:27:09

They said which measures that you're a part of there was one Masjid there. They said we have a guy here. He says he wants to teach the deen you know? So the masjid people went and they he said I believe his students were telling me he spent two three days in the airport because they wouldn't release him. It's the old days. Finally someone came and they took him and out of all of the students of Shizuka Rahimullah data that he dispatched to do hikma in North America, he is the only one alive now. He's the only one still alive, very old man. Still in that very same Cornwall community where he was where he is doing the fifth month teaching the Dean teaching Quran teaching

00:27:09--> 00:27:50

Hadith to people. And these people left a legacy for us. May Allah subhanaw taala elevate their MACOM and imagine the sight of shells, the Quran, Allah Yachty and not just him, but these Messiah who lived far who sent their students not to one country, but to all continents, that you will go to South Africa, you will go to the northern part of Africa, you will go to West Africa, you go to East Africa, you're gonna go to Europe Here you go to, you know, Portugal and you go here and you go there every one of them when I graduated mother as I said to shuffle for him Allah like most students do after they graduate that I'm planning to stay in England

00:27:54--> 00:28:06

after you graduate, you build a relationship with your teachers that you don't want to go anymore. You want to stay where they are. So chef uses Rahim Allah with Allah he says to me, that no, no, you have to go back to America. That's where the vision is for you go.

00:28:08--> 00:28:46

It wasn't easy. It was hard. But Allah reward him for pushing me out of my comfort zone. Sending sending me back here and along the way, very carefully guiding I remember I said to him, the shift I want to do. And I'd like to teach at a university specifically the University of Louisville. I always wanted to teach there. So I said, I'd like to be a professor and teach at the University of Louisville and Kentucky. He said, No, no, that's not the vision for you. Focus on this instead. And slowly slowly, Allah azza wa jal puts it in the hearts of these righteous folks, where the fitment of the deen needs to be

00:28:48--> 00:29:01

existent. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has a mysterious way of allowing things to come into existence. Into that we are indebted to that may Allah azza wa jal fill all of their graves with notice.

00:29:03--> 00:29:09

So Jaffa or the hola Juan, now he stands in front of the Joshi and he delivers his powerful speech.

00:29:10--> 00:29:52

It's one that teaches us Muslims to not shy away from what you believe in, to be confident, to be strong, to be systematic, even when you speak, to be intelligent, to be courageous to speak your truth. To understand not everyone will agree with your truth but if you're wise when you speak it and if you're sincere and you make dua to Allah, Allah subhanahu wa Tada will allow that truth to reach the hearts of the people that actually need to hear it. You are nothing more than a vessel. And as long as you remember that, as long as you stay humble, and don't consider yourself the one that is going to bring change rather you understand that change lies purely under the command of

00:29:52--> 00:29:58

Allah subhanho wa Taala in Nicola demon bapta wala Qin Allah here idemia Shah, wha hoo.

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

believe that in

00:30:02--> 00:30:04

so Jaffa the hola Juan starts his speech,

00:30:05--> 00:30:22

a Johan Malik, just the way he starts, it shows his intelligence. He starts off by saying, oh, dear King, and I had deer in there because it's kind of connotated in the way the statement is a Yohan Malik, right, there's respect built into it.

00:30:25--> 00:30:28

He acknowledges the person that he's speaking to.

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

He understands the person that he's talking to is rightfully the king.

00:30:33--> 00:30:45

And by accepting his position, he is acknowledging in this gathering of people that I understand the McCombe of the person that I'm talking to, I understand the authority that he has in this conversation.

00:30:46--> 00:31:08

And he also builds a bridge. Because when you come in, and when you're talking to people of authority, and you refuse to recognize their authority, how are they going to have any sympathy towards you? How are they going to have any compassion towards you? Someone comes to their father and says, Baba, the father says, Yes, he understands this place. Someone comes to his father and says, Mahmoud

00:31:10--> 00:31:13

is that? What did you see? You said what?

00:31:14--> 00:31:25

And then he makes his request that I'm going to stay awake till 11 o'clock and his dad's like, No, you're not staying awake to 11 o'clock, you're going to your bed when? Right now this exact second, you should have been in your bed 10 minutes ago.

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

jofra The Allah one starts off with respect, are you have money.

00:31:32--> 00:31:41

And then when he starts off, he starts his conversation, not where they are in that moment that there are people making an accusation against them.

00:31:42--> 00:32:01

He's not speaking directly to those people. He's not calling them out to because he understands that these people may already have a relationship with Natasha that he doesn't know. He doesn't want to get into a fight where he says something about them. They say something about him. Jonathan, Hola, Juan, takes a story back to the beginning. Good enough. Bowman, Elijah Haley.

00:32:02--> 00:32:51

Let me tell you about our origin story. We were a people of ignorance, worshipping idols eating carrion, we would engage in immorality, sever family ties. We were not kind to our neighbors. We were harsh to our neighbors, the strong from us what oppress and eat from the week from among us. In one narration, he says durable Caliban October a lot that we gave more attention to our pets and animals than we even gave to our own children. We would bury them alive. That was a sort of community we were in. Imagine the societal confusion. Imagine the theological and belief confusion that exists in the hearts of these people. This is where we were. And nobody cared for us. Nobody

00:32:51--> 00:33:08

was there to guide us. No one was interested in solving these very real issues that relate it to us at every level, not within Islam in our faith. No one was talking about justice. No one was there to fix society. Everyone in Macomb, Oklahoma is focused on what are tribal honor. Everyone was busy building their tribal honor.

00:33:10--> 00:33:15

Then he talks about the NP love, the change came. How did the change come?

00:33:18--> 00:33:35

Hata bathala Who? Elaine Elayna Sulan. Allah sent a messenger. That's the second part of our story. And this messenger wasn't so random who came out of a cave one day and said I have some you know some prophecies for you. I'm some Nostradamus No, that's not some rando that came

00:33:36--> 00:33:45

not even NASA who was silica who? Amana Whoa, wha fafo. We knew who this man was. And he was 100 out of 100 Even before he said

00:33:48--> 00:34:11

he was perfect. Every aspect he never lied. He was a truthful person. He was not into immorality that he was trying to sleep around here and there when I other Biller, his lineage was pure. He comes from a people of leaders. If you come from a pure lineage, why not just continue to ride that wave? Why is he stepping out of his comfort zone and come and facing the challenges that we face?

00:34:13--> 00:34:26

Now he's introduced the Prophet a lot of Saddam, the next step in this genius speech of his he talks about the fundamentals of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa salams teachings regarding Iman

00:34:27--> 00:34:46

for the honor in Allah then why the who were not Buddha who were not Allah, hakuna Naboo do not know about when I'm in doing him in an era when ofan his message was one, worship Allah and leave everyone other than Allah. That was his message La Ilaha illa Allah

00:34:49--> 00:34:54

after he lays out the emaan now he goes into a lot and then he goes into Amahl

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

what are the cloud the prophets of Allah is seven Titus. Why did you focus on o'clock?

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

because a lot are the Eman part was unique to Muslims not united Allah. But now he's going to teach that message of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which was common and universal and not only applied to Muslims but applies to every human being. Our Prophet didn't teach us something that would corrupt human beings, humanity even those who didn't believe in us didn't believe in our message didn't believe in our faith. He taught us well I'm not gonna be super clean Hadith. What other ill Amana was silica Rahim Well, hosting LGR Well, Kofi Annan Muharram. Well, how can it Dima when a Hannah and fava hush behold is Zulu will actually marry a team work on films and art that at

00:35:38--> 00:36:21

every level whenever was considered to be the best, that's what can be said. Allamani was sort of taught us. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us to be truthful, to never betray someone that has trusted you that always take care of your family. Be kind and dutiful to your neighbors, never engage in anything haram. Don't spill the blood of another rather protect the honor of another person. He told us to never engage in immoral acts publicly or privately that you do not submit a false testimony in the court that when you are asked to speak regarding the honor of another don't think about your tribe, their tribe what you benefit trying to benefit another person. You speak

00:36:21--> 00:36:25

your conscious Ohana and code is Zoo. That's what Zoom is Shahadat, the zoo.

00:36:27--> 00:37:03

Do not touch the wealth of those that are unfortunate and may not be able to protect themselves. One ugly model your team. It's easy place for you to go and rob someone who can't defend. But no, remember that there is a day that you will have to stand in front of Allah and answer for that. Don't take a penny that doesn't belong to you. Don't eat a cracker that isn't yours. Don't touch a shoe that doesn't belong to you. You know, don't scratch your car. Don't bump into the person's car. Don't dump your garbage on someone else's lawn. Don't take from someone else's cable, someone else's cable. Don't steal other people's electricity. Like be mindful of these things. Don't steal someone

00:37:03--> 00:37:14

else's internet. It's not yours. Don't do it. When a HANA on an ugly mandala team, were called film of Sadat, and do not tarnish the honor of another.

00:37:17--> 00:37:35

As for what do we believe in in terms of our faith? What is it actually about? Well, I'm out on a night with Allah Hua, who will our industry will be a nuclear Masada TS Zakka that he taught us to give us a car he taught us to fast. The Prophet of Allah taught us to establish our prayer

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

for Santa canal. So what did we do? When someone comes to you with such a beautiful message? We believe in him, well, I'm unhappy, and we accepted him. What about a man who Allah my job human and Allah, we fully accepted revelation

00:37:52--> 00:38:07

for Hala, Hala Luna, ohana, Mahara Molina, we followed his guidance. After he's done here. He's presented his case. So now he hands it over back to the Joshy. But again, look at his eloquence

00:38:08--> 00:38:11

and you have Malik or odier. King

00:38:13--> 00:38:17

are people. Their only problem is

00:38:19--> 00:38:22

that when we made the change, they couldn't accept us.

00:38:24--> 00:38:39

They didn't like the change. They rebelled and turned against us. They tortured us for you believed in and it was all because of our deen for no other reason. We committed no crime in society. We did not harm anyone. It was purely because we were what we believed in.

00:38:42--> 00:38:50

And when things got out of control with a Madonna Mona Corona, whether Yoko Alena Waha lubaina or vain Adina Harada illa biLlah

00:38:51--> 00:38:54

when things are out of control, and we can no longer protect ourselves, we came to your land

00:38:58--> 00:38:59

our hope is

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

Robina Fiji Radek what Jonah another another hola novella mind*

00:39:07--> 00:39:12

we hope that you will grant us your protection and that we will not be oppressed in your court.

00:39:15--> 00:39:17

Everyone in the gathering is shocked Wow.

00:39:19--> 00:39:38

That's how you speak. Now Joshi says okay, he wants the lead right. So he asked him for the lead for Jaffa the Allah one what is it that you believe in? Java the Allah one presented his beautiful speech? So he says to him, Okay, you talk about Revelation that why don't you present some revelation? What is it that your Prophet came with recite some of it before me

00:39:39--> 00:39:58

hamaca shaken me my job. Hina bu come and Allah on an M Nam Allah, who Allah for Cara Lee HCA I been slaughtered vichara raw material because the who was the Jaffa or the Allah one begin to recite the opening verses of Surah Medina

00:40:02--> 00:40:08

While he's reciting them, the Joshy breaks down into tears. And he begins to cry.

00:40:09--> 00:40:12

He's crying away by hearing the ayat of the Quran.

00:40:13--> 00:40:34

Many of us who don't say this is the mythos of the first verse of the seven digits of the Quran. What you've asked me Oh mountain ZTE, literal Solterra you know the freedom and then I mean model full minute that it's actually talking about in the gesture, that when he heard the ayat of the Quran, where he that seven year old mountain Xena de la rasool Allah, you know, the Phaedo minute Demi Mara formula

00:40:35--> 00:41:23

that they saw the truth in that message so their eyes begin to pour. And that is the power of the kalam of Allah. Sit with it everyday yourself. Take some time out. When you're sitting in your car, turn off your radio, turn off your Spotify, let go of your phone calls, deal with them later. Enjoy the Quran. Read one Jews of Quran at least every single day and try to engage with it. It'll take you half an hour, 45 minutes one hour, but the best one hour you can spend while sitting in front of the Quran reading it and fully appreciating that this is my Arabic speaking to me. This is my Allah, read these verses, fine, strengthen them. Every idea you read, you will find a lesson there. Because

00:41:23--> 00:41:57

this is the kalam of Allah subhanahu wa taala. And there is not one part of the kalam of Allah that is in vain. You just need a heart that is excited. You need a heart that is sincere. You need a heart that is open a heart that is humble. A heart that appreciates revelation. And as you read through there is one reading of the Quran that is part of what he does. I mean, well, no, no, no. Not that. You have to sit with it properly. Well, no, I mean, but then fill out the law Allah He does. Imagine a person that's reading this is on the way to work.

00:41:59--> 00:42:39

Well, I'm I mean, but then fill out the law or latest law, or a person who's had a rough day at work, probably just got fired, or had a rough meeting with their superior. And on the way back there reading the i Well, I'm I mean, but then out of the LA or LA here. Well, yeah, and then we'll miss Takara. One was so that I couldn't fix the movie. Allah has taken the responsibility of your sustenance, don't worry. It's all been written. You do your best, and he'll take care of the rest. Any person that's worked for 40 5060 years, some of the seniors in our community go and sit with them and they'll tell you there was a point in my life where I thought it was all going to fail. It

00:42:39--> 00:43:05

was all going to come crumbling down. And then on the yet our Corolla life our hospital. It took Elijah Allahu Maharajah when Haifa said that from the unexpected from nowhere. That is opened up. The door opened up Allah azza wa jal sent someone in that moment who said something that gave them that confidence they needed most Takara homes Tada where it is where it is to be released. Allah azza wa jal has it all noted down

00:43:07--> 00:43:24

the Joshi in that moment says that what this man recited the Quran and the revelation that was given to an ISA he said come from the exact same lantern min ms SCOTTON ye that in this is one source

00:43:26--> 00:43:39

and then he says to Abdullah and I'm gonna be the house that you guys leave there is no way well la hilariously more home la cama Avada I'm going to send these people back No way that's gonna happen You too have failed get out of here.

00:43:41--> 00:43:47

Send him out of the Aloha she's still near Reading the Hadith this whole story is hers she's narrating it first firsthand she signed

00:43:48--> 00:43:50

for the month and then the Joshi

00:43:51--> 00:44:16

so I that I would have not asked for colony Sahibi he will lie that at the end mill Malika garden well as Quran Allah whom and Emily him Maryam little Sada, who have given me known that when they were leaving, I'm going to ask me sure the Muslims heard it and he said to his buddy, that tomorrow I'm going to go back to the Joshy for round two and I have a secret that I'm going to put in front of him. And when I say it, his heart will boil with anger towards them.

00:44:17--> 00:44:21

The Muslims weren't sure what is he going to say? The next day?

00:44:23--> 00:44:24

I'm gonna ask comes around to

00:44:26--> 00:44:40

are you on Malik in the heart well i Latina await at home. waha Mehta home your coluna fee 70 Mariama Poland Alima. For Odyssey de him was sent home on my oppo Luna fee that you know, these Muslims that you're giving refuge to

00:44:42--> 00:44:56

they have a very horrible thing to say about a Saudi citizen, because they were Christians. The Joshi was Christian. It was a it was under the rule of the Byzantine Empire. So Christianity was very strong there.

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

Joshy us

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

second time he calls the Muslims in.

00:45:06--> 00:45:07

There's a question here.

00:45:08--> 00:45:25

Something to think about that when the Muslims arrive in front of the Joshy and they are being asked point blank by Najafi. What is it that you believe in? They know in that moment that their belief regarding a Saudi Salam differs from what this guy believes in. Their belief is that ISA is the Son of God.

00:45:26--> 00:45:27

We don't believe that.

00:45:28--> 00:45:31

We believe something different. What's our answer?

00:45:33--> 00:45:40

Jonathan's gonna be thought about the Allah one his answer. He said, Wallah he mana Pulu Allama. Kala,

00:45:41--> 00:45:47

when asked what is your belief regarding the Saudi Salam? He said, By Allah We only say what Allah said.

00:45:50--> 00:45:51

So then

00:45:53--> 00:46:03

the Joshi said to him, Okay, tell me what it is that you say. What is it that you believe you say that you believe what Allah said? What is it that Allah said?

00:46:05--> 00:46:19

For Jabba Jaffa? In who Abdullah who are Soo Hoo hoo hoo Kalamata who led the Aloha, Maria Maria Avara, el Batool, that he is a servant of Allah and His Messenger,

00:46:20--> 00:46:38

who miraculously was granted to Maria malaise, Suriname the pure and his statement that Allah al Batool is powerful because this is a refutation against the Jews who claimed that Medea Manets Saddam had engaged in really illicit relationships to conceive rissani Saddam

00:46:39--> 00:46:51

but at the same time, he doesn't he doesn't succumb to the pressure and fall into this cycle of assimilation that no we believe what you believe don't know. We don't believe what you believe. This is what we believe it's different.

00:46:52--> 00:47:13

When the dashi hears this, he picks up a stick from the ground and says to hammer that there is not even this much difference between what we believe and they what the truth is and what they're saying. It's exactly the same and he sends them off. And this wasn't a Josh's honesty, and the baraka that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada put in Java, the Allah Juan's words,

00:47:14--> 00:47:17

never say something that you don't really believe in.

00:47:18--> 00:47:25

And as a Muslim, when you're confused on something, turn back to what Allah in his resume teach.

00:47:27--> 00:47:33

If you aren't unique, if your message isn't different than why would someone even consider accepting it?

00:47:34--> 00:47:39

People who accept Islam, see the uniqueness in Islam?

00:47:40--> 00:48:27

They see the story is different. They see the message is different. There's something special being offered here. There's a liberation of freedom through monotheism. There's true justice. The only problem is the world hasn't seen what Islam has to offer yet. We have kept it hidden. We haven't shared the story of our Prophet of our Sahaba of the Quran. And those Muslims who are skeptical themselves, their greatest challenge is their Jehovah and ignorance of the deen. Because when you understand what your deen is, when you understand what your religion is, your confidence isn't going to decrease it's going to increase. Over the winter break. I spent a week in Toronto, teaching a

00:48:27--> 00:49:07

class on Hadith rejection, the origins of Hadith rejection, the cause of Hadith rejection, how we Muslims believe in Hadith, we view it as a source of authority. The Sunnah is an authority on the ummah. And after that lecture was after the five days were done, so many people came to me and they said, from the audience, there almost 600 people that took the class. So many people came to me and they said chef, will lie here before this class started. I was skeptical of Hadith myself. And I'm so happy that I had a few hours in this class, studying this content, it gave me so much more confidence. I wish I can teach the same thing to my family members.

00:49:09--> 00:49:45

Leave aside the Muslims, the non Muslims, the Muslims are the ones that are in a crisis. They're not sure if they should believe in their own Deen. The Muslims are in crisis. They don't know if they should actually even question the authenticity of Hadith because they're worried that if I start tugging at this, maybe it'll all just fall apart and there will be nothing there. Maybe we're all supposed to just go along with the charade that Muslims put this idea of authenticity and authentic Quran authentic sunnah together. If we ask questions, people are terrified that if I look into this, maybe it isn't really what it's supposed to be. And I'm going to lose my Eman. So I'm just going to

00:49:45--> 00:49:54

go along with the play. There's no play here. There's no sleight of hand here. There's no charade here. Of Hamdulillah. This deal is the real deal.

00:49:55--> 00:50:00

The Muslim scholars weren't joking around. They had his for a

00:50:00--> 00:50:42

Lions are sold. So they put their lives into it. They dedicated everything they had their day their night. And this is a tradition that goes all the way back to the sahaba. They spoke the truth, ship Muhammad Alama. In his book, he says that the sign of the under sunnah is that when they narrate, they narrate what is for them and also what is against them. We don't shy away if there is an idea, or if there is a Hadith, or there is an opinion that someone said whether it's coincides with my personal opinion or not. The task of the narrator is to convey it. Because the prophets of Allah who it was said and taught us valuable Russia has implied the one that is present should convey to the

00:50:42--> 00:51:19

one that is absent because it is possible that tomorrow someone will understand it better. Maybe the one that you convey it to Allah azza wa jal will bless them with a deeper understanding. Now go and read the works of your mama no, we don't love Yanni, even hajat and escallonia La la la la Casa La Nina Jota la ya la Medina lainnya how to La La Anwar Shah Kashmir, Rahmatullah Wa La Zydeco the Rahmatullah Wa La you have the works of shirehampton Fatah Buddhadharma Allahu taala. Go and look at the works of these people monies have been noted Maha the chef and how do you want them HUD Secretary Donovan en la ya la Monica Austin no no Tierra de la Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Allah YALI, you

00:51:19--> 00:51:30

know, sha Allah, Allah himself or him Allahu Taala each of these people Lhasa was Allah gave them a depth of understanding. That was unique. Why was one sitting

00:51:31--> 00:51:50

with a scholar, a very known scholar of our time, I won't say his name for the sake of the gathering. And he said to me, that I read sha Allah Allah, Allah, Allah He Ali's, who was Dalloway, he's from Indian subcontinent, sha Allah, Allah davenham, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, and I found no book to second.

00:51:52--> 00:52:03

He said, I found this to be one of the most intellectual takes on the deed. Go and read the word read the words of the works of *a do not Rossi go and read the works of Mohammed Al Ghazali.

00:52:04--> 00:52:40

Read these people read the biographical biographical works of shamsudeen navabi. There is no ducks that I've delivered in this entire series without going through line by line of the biographical entries of Imam Sabina the heavy, every single one of these, I will not name us for honeys, Marty for the Sahaba there is no Doris without that. It doesn't exist. There is no data that I delivered here on these Tuesdays during this series specifically that I haven't gone through Imam Muhammad Allahu Allah is Muslim, to see which narrations add up to the narrative and which ones should be included which one should not be included.

00:52:41--> 00:52:54

But the irony is the Muslim doesn't know. There's no desire to read. There's only a desire to Google search things. So you get partial pieces here there here there. And we have this broken understanding of what our Dina's

00:52:55--> 00:53:08

Java or the Allah one. He, while he wasn't how Masha Allah subhanaw taala blessed him with three sons Abdullah, who narrates abundantly from his father many narrations of his exist, I own and Mohammed bin Jaffa as well.

00:53:11--> 00:53:23

He returned back to Madina Munawwara when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had just returned from the conquest of labor in the seventh year after which it all

00:53:25--> 00:53:33

you have to appreciate this. Because bear in mind once he returns back to Madina, Munawwara he is only going to live for a few months before he leaves this dunya.

00:53:35--> 00:53:45

I talked about his sacrifice. He left Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam in the fifth year of Naboo, eight years there seven years here 15 years

00:53:46--> 00:53:48

that he could have spent with the Prophet of Allah.

00:53:49--> 00:53:54

You can't even begin to imagine how much he missed Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.

00:53:56--> 00:53:59

And how much Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam missed him.

00:54:01--> 00:54:06

Jaffa the Allah Juana returns to Madina, Munawwara Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sees him

00:54:07--> 00:54:35

Phantasm ahora Sula, the prophet Allah Islam he hugs him, or Kabbalah bein ins beignet, he and kissed him between his eyes. You know, I'm a shabby Narita city WIAA. And then he said, a DBE Hema, and I don't know what I'm more happy enough, the conquest of hybrid which took forever because they had these forts, and they made it very hard for the Muslims. Was it a conquest of Cuba, or the arrival of Jaffa and the fascinating thing is, the conquest of labor happened at the hands of his younger brother.

00:54:36--> 00:54:37

So you know,

00:54:38--> 00:54:49

I leave in every thought about the Allah one who basically got tired of the forts of the Jews of labor. And he approached the fort, grab the door and basically ripped it out of its hinges.

00:54:50--> 00:54:55

Rip the door out of its hinges next time you're at home, I want you to just tug at the door at your home and try to understand

00:54:57--> 00:54:59

what's going on here. We're not talking about door hinges that are like

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

The size of a fry we're talking about door hinges that are like their massive door hinges that are thicker than your cups that you drink from

00:55:10--> 00:55:21

made of solid metal and doors that are thick to keep an army out. And I know the Allah one has given the flag by Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam that go and do your thing.

00:55:22--> 00:55:46

And he takes the flag of Rasulullah sallallahu even though he had pain in his eye he went to the front and he got the Muslims victory in the battles of labor so if you saw Saddam returns back in Jaffa the Allah one is there in the puffs awesome says I don't know if I'm we're happy at the conquest of clay but which is a great victory for the Muslims because it will be beautiful do me Jaffa or your return or Java? It's such a pleasure to have you back.

00:55:48--> 00:55:49

Java are the hola Juan

00:55:51--> 00:55:52

he

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

spent his time with the peace of Allah Juana he was Sena

00:55:57--> 00:55:58

he narrates from the Prophet of Allah.

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

Imam Ahmed Rahmatullahi Ali in his Muslim

00:56:03--> 00:56:09

other than the story of how Russia doesn't narrate any narration from Jonathan with the Allah one month line.

00:56:11--> 00:56:31

He doesn't have any narrations there. However, if you go to some of the other collections of Hadith, you have to go to other collections, you will find in some of the other Masonic youth, Messiah and Eid and some of the other Muslims that now the Allama began to narrate some of the other narrations from him. For example

00:56:36--> 00:56:42

there is a dy and Jaffa it's in the book and Ema Eliza is still an early one.

00:56:44--> 00:57:00

And Jaffa gonna be taller than me. So some gamma either mesolimbic B carbon Jafra de la one says that went to be sort of law while he was sort of faced any difficulty or calamity, he would say. La Isla in the law will Holly will Corinne La Ilaha illa Allah rubble Arshi

00:57:01--> 00:57:23

the will hamdulillah European Alameen he narrates this hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Similarly ignobly Shaybah al goofy in his Muslim narrates regarding Jaffa Batali that Jaffa the Allah Juan's children narrate that the hut Dhamma be a meanie that Jaffa the Allah one would wear his ring in which hand

00:57:24--> 00:57:26

in his right hand? Yes, correct.

00:57:27--> 00:57:34

Similarly, karate buddy in his book, he has an entire book dedicated to solitude

00:57:36--> 00:58:04

which is a whole conversation of its own, that you know, it'd be so awesome he taught us this method of praying for record where the wise read a total of 300 times and the peace of mind said Whoever prays the Salah, their sins will be forgiven past and everything. So the Baghdadi has a whole book dedicated to this, the crew salata tisby Well ahaadeeth Let the rule yet Artemisa Allahu Allahu wa salam Thea with the love for and father naphthalene Allah. This is the name of the book by the famous hottie daddy.

00:58:05--> 00:58:42

So in there he narrates and Rasool Allah Allah Sankara Lee Jaffa a be thought under Rasulullah Sankara Lee Jaffa Vitaly, then maybe salatu salam said to Jaffa Jaffa Vitalia Should I not give you a gift? Should I not bless you? He said Paula Jaffa Belia rasool Allah in Belarus, of course. So that maybe salsa taught him to suddenly herba art and Tatara mill Qurani was so rotten tomato coolibah Delica Subhanallah well hamdulillah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allahu Akbar, Hamza Asha Ramanathan in Africa and Hadith until the end, that he taught him the whole method of praying, so not to disappear

00:58:44--> 00:59:01

because of you, because he came in the seventh year. The seventh year of hijra, is an important one because that was also the year the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the companions were given permission to spend three days in Makkah as a result of the Treaty of Arabia which happened the previous year.

00:59:02--> 00:59:08

So when maybe so the Lord is sort of went first I'm going to cover Jaffa or the Allah one was also within sort of La salon.

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

He was with the Prophet of Allah.

00:59:12--> 00:59:54

And when the VSA Allahu alayhi wa sallam spent the three days in makan it was time for them to return the Quraysh they said to Allah the Allahu Kohli Sahaja okra Jana for model agile. Get out of here now you're three days are gone, it's time for you to leave Mecca go back to Medina. So right when they were leaving hams out of the hola Juan had a daughter, who was still in Makkah. She rushed up to the Muslims and said Take me with you. So let me sit alone while he was in this house scooped her up. Okay, you're coming back with us. Now there were three companions that disputed her custody, her custody. On one hand you had Alia the Allahu and he said I'm going to take her and then you had

00:59:54--> 01:00:00

ze there'll be Allah Who said I will take her and then Jaffa the Allah one also made a claim that I'm going to take

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

Take the daughter of Hamza at the Allah one at home and take care of her Subhanallah Licchavi took care of orphans, the opposite of us were running away and they're running towards Allah give us still feel to understand.

01:00:12--> 01:00:13

Everyone presented their case.

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

Jonathan with the Allah who won when he presented his case, he said

01:00:22--> 01:00:29

that she will come to my home because I am her uncle, and my wife is his Hala.

01:00:30--> 01:00:58

Is her Hana sorry, because he comes out of the hola Juan's wife was a snob into Mesa the hola Juan sister. And as my mentor may say, the hola Juana was Jaffa the hola Juan's wife, so her holla is with me. Now at that point, Rasul Allah said Alana has sort of made the famous statement that I'll holla to be Manzi, let alone the holla is like the mother. So she will go with Jaffa the last one because the Honda will take care of the child the best the holler refers to the

01:00:59--> 01:01:13

sister of the mother, that she is the Honda and she will take care of and everyone has a special relationship with their Honda. Like, you know, their father's sister or their sorry, their mother's sister. There's a special bond and relationship.

01:01:14--> 01:01:46

It was in the eighth year after HIPAA when the Romans began to cause some problems that are sort of law said a lot is some dispatched an army to deal with them. And when the Prophet said a lot is said on was sending off the army, he said that the leader of the army will be Zaid Bin Hadith or the Hadith or the Allah one who was like a son to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and if he has martyred then Jaffa the Allah one will take his place. And if he has martyred then Abdullah bin and Allahu Allahu Allah will take his place.

01:01:47--> 01:01:59

Fein Padilla Abdullah Hibino rahua Hatha Oh Siva fell yesterday Muslim Munna the unforeseen Amira minhang. And if anything happens to Abdullah bin or la hora de la Juan, then you can choose the next leader yourself.

01:02:01--> 01:02:01

It's up to you.

01:02:03--> 01:02:17

Maybe said a lot of seven generally didn't do this. He would appoint one liter not three. But the puffs a lot of seven has sequence was an indication that something different was going to happen this battle. The Muslims arrived in Malta, which is in current day, Jordan.

01:02:18--> 01:02:31

When they arrived there, they saw that the Romans had outnumbered them. The Muslims were 3000 and in some Accords, the army of the Romans was close to 100,000

01:02:32--> 01:02:35

some narrations 50 7080. They're all narrations there.

01:02:38--> 01:02:39

They weren't sure what to do.

01:02:40--> 01:02:48

Some of the Sahaba said let's go back to Medina. This is not real. So then they said, did you come here to live or did you come here for Jana?

01:02:49--> 01:03:00

They said We came for Jana. So then the Sahaba said Jana is in the battlefield not in 72 degrees controlled nest temperature. That's not where Jen neighs go forward.

01:03:05--> 01:03:06

So the started

01:03:08--> 01:03:12

and it wasn't too far into the battle that Zaidan Hadith of the Allah one was martyred.

01:03:13--> 01:03:23

In one narration, the Sahaba they say that at that same time, let me sort of law is set on was sitting with us in Madina Munawwara and he said that Zaid has been martyred.

01:03:24--> 01:03:32

Allah's was ill informed him. So the Prophet of Allah cried and the Companions cried Java, the Allah one then took the flag on the Muslims and began to fight.

01:03:34--> 01:03:38

The Quraysh they attacked not the Kurdish the Romans that had attacked him

01:03:40--> 01:03:43

and they cut off his right arm.

01:03:45--> 01:03:51

Jaffa law the law one wasn't going down too easily. He tossed the flag of the Muslims in his left

01:03:53--> 01:04:07

and they then chopped off his left arm. He took what remained from his arms and hug the flag of the Muslims the flag that was given to them by OSU law said a lot of stuff that my arms can go but this Dean is going to continue

01:04:08--> 01:04:10

this honor will be held high

01:04:11--> 01:04:14

and a third person came and struck Jaffa the hola Juan

01:04:15--> 01:04:20

shut off who shot rain which sliced him literally in half. He got cut in half.

01:04:22--> 01:04:23

If normally the hola Juan says

01:04:26--> 01:04:42

that we searched for Java, the hola Juana and we found him among those that were martyred and we saw in his body close to 90 wounds on one part of his body. He had inflicted 90 wounds he fought and fought and fought right till the end.

01:04:44--> 01:04:56

And then Abdullah Hara the Allah Juan took the flag. And he fought courageously until he was martyred as well. The Muslims were gutted, what are we doing now? So they begin to look left and right who's the next person

01:04:58--> 01:04:59

and tucked away in the ranks?

01:05:00--> 01:05:13

was someone who had an accepted who had accepted Islam recently. Khalid bin will either the Allah one they said this man give him the flag. He said no no there are senior buddy companions here I'm I'm a junior, they said no go forward.

01:05:15--> 01:05:25

And in that rewire when the Prophet of Allah was speaking to this hub and Medina, he said to them, that the flag has now reached the hand of a sword from the swords of Allah, the battle starts now.

01:05:27--> 01:05:40

And therefore he was given the name safe Allah, the sword of Allah. And 100 of the Allah one was on his deathbed, he was crying. The companion that was there, he said, Why are you crying? He said, I wanted shahada and I'm dying here. Like a coward on my bed.

01:05:42--> 01:05:50

So that person said I was there the day the Prophet of Allah called you safe Allah and we all knew that you would not die on the battlefield because no one can break the sword of Allah.

01:05:51--> 01:05:57

That was an honor given to you. The sword of Allah has been protected. And Your Honor, Your reward is with Allah azza wa jal.

01:05:58--> 01:06:17

Finally, when the caravan when the army Jaffa has been when either the Allah one got them victory in that Battlefield, which is a whole different story, it's a fascinating story. One day we'll cover it if we make it there in sha Allah. They returned back to Madina, Munawwara victorious and when they arrived

01:06:18--> 01:06:24

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given the news that they have all been martyred. These are the people.

01:06:25--> 01:06:29

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was overwhelmed in grief and began to cry

01:06:31--> 01:06:44

and wanted to deliver the news of Jaffa the Allahu Juan's martyrdom to his family directly himself. The Prophet of Allah found a snap into a mace or the Allahu anha in her home.

01:06:46--> 01:06:52

And she had cooked a meal for the return of her husband because she knew the caravan was about to return.

01:06:54--> 01:07:05

I Jeanette Egina was also that the bunny ha Hannah Alba Seto and she had washed her kids put fragrance on them put on new garments. Bob was going to be home today.

01:07:07--> 01:07:18

Sort of love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he came in there was a sadness as my mentor May says, When the Prophet of Allah came there was a sorrow right to when Allah terminal Hosni to wash she

01:07:20--> 01:07:28

was her whole Corinne that there was this darkness, a sadness that was over the face of Rasulullah sallallahu ala he was

01:07:31--> 01:07:52

well, Allah terminal fills him. He was in his grief. Hula refers to like a thin fabric, a sober rhotic. And she seemed like there was this dark there was a thin fabric that was hanging over the profit space, not literal, right. But there was this, there was a sorrow that was over the face of Rasulullah saw so we're gonna layer of grief on the face of an obese loss. And when he entered.

01:07:54--> 01:08:06

She said I didn't want to ask him what happened because I was afraid of what he would say. So I just watched the resort alone. While he was sitting, he sat down and said, bring the children of my beloved Jaffa.

01:08:07--> 01:08:15

So the children came running out to hug a sort of laws that allowed them to play with props of awesome thinking their father was on the other side.

01:08:16--> 01:08:21

The prophets of the Lord said I'm beginning to kiss them then he began to smell them smell their fragrance.

01:08:22--> 01:08:26

And why in a hotel refund him in a demo maybe saucer was crying all along?

01:08:27--> 01:08:31

For call to a swab into our mace then as a messenger of ALLAH, why are you crying?

01:08:33--> 01:08:38

The prophets of Allah Juana he was set him said that my brother, Jaffa was martyred.

01:08:40--> 01:08:43

A suburb into a mesa the Allahu anha began to cry.

01:08:45--> 01:08:51

And to that and to be said, Allahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah Methley Jaffa family to be killed by working

01:08:52--> 01:08:56

there and the likes of Jaffa anyone that wants to cry or should cry.

01:08:57--> 01:09:00

He was special. I really love this man.

01:09:01--> 01:09:13

Maybe somebody said and then said it's not only the early Jafar Catarman that go and make some food for the family of Jaffa forgot the shoe Lulu and fussy him because they are occupied have themselves

01:09:14--> 01:09:16

they're in so much pain, someone take care of them.

01:09:17--> 01:09:20

The Prophet said Allahu Allah He was said and then said to them

01:09:22--> 01:09:30

that take pride and happiness and knowing that his arms that were cut off in return Allah gave him wings that he flies through paradise with Jaffa ya

01:09:32--> 01:09:42

he was given two wings and it's with that he enjoys the view of gender, but are at Jaffa Allah Who Jana honey Phil Jana and Ebihara the Allah one

01:09:48--> 01:09:54

mama Chavi Rahim Allah Allah Allah says that no matter the Allah one when he would say salaam to

01:09:55--> 01:09:59

Jaffa, the Allah one son Abdullah, he would say to him, a tsunami or an AK

01:10:00--> 01:10:02

On a Yebin Adil Jana Hain

01:10:03--> 01:10:10

that Salam upon the one who is a child of the one with two weeks. That's the honor of your father.

01:10:12--> 01:10:39

A sub interim as per the Allahu Anhu that went on to marry Satan Abu Bakr Siddiq, or the hola Juan she became the wife of Satan Abu Bakr Siddiq with a lot of books in the Quran bought her into his marriage and with a book on a Cintiq with the Allah one she had a child Muhammad IV buck and then after the passing of a little bucket of Cydia for the Allah one she then married say that I live in Utah Liberty Allah one.

01:10:42--> 01:10:42

So

01:10:43--> 01:10:52

the amount of shabby narrates I'm sorry. Earlier the hola Juan says that one day someone came and said

01:10:54--> 01:11:03

who was better? Who was the better husband? At this point she's married to Allah the Allah when someone came and asked us not of the Allah Juana who was the better husband Jaffa or aboubaker

01:11:06--> 01:11:08

Which one has a better husband Jafar or Abu Bakr

01:11:11--> 01:11:41

in one narration, her son Mohammed bin Jaffa and Mohammed bin Abu Bakar were both fighting with one another. My dad was better my dad was better my dad was better my dad was better. So I needed the Allah one. He said yes to the Boehner Houma answer them who was a better father for call it Mara at sharp and Cara Hiram in Jaffa, when I can and Hiram in the back. I did not see a young man better than Jaffa and I did not see an older man better than Ivanka

01:11:44--> 01:11:47

because she married him well abacus to do the alone is much older.

01:11:49--> 01:11:54

So then earlier the Allah one said mattock Tila Nasha but about me

01:11:56--> 01:12:03

he did not see a young man better than Jaffa my brother, and either DDC or old man better than than Abu Bakr.

01:12:04--> 01:12:18

He then said well Opal T Raha LM Akatsuki, but your answer was right, you are honest. So then she responded back that there's hate and you too I have found much pleasure and your companionship

01:12:21--> 01:12:46

I'm the loving Jaffa says that I never approached by Uncle Alia the Allah one and asked him if something while mentioning the name of my father and Alia the Allah one turned me away that never happened. He really respect his brother a lot respected his brother a lot. So today, we covered the story of Satan Jaffa gonna be thought even at the Allah one full of so many Wyatt so many lessons, so much to take in so much to be inspired by.

01:12:48--> 01:12:52

The lessons are here for us, their lives are present in front of us.

01:12:54--> 01:12:56

There's so much for us to internalize

01:12:57--> 01:13:10

what legacy these leave people left behind. At every step, you see a new story. At every point, you see another powerful lesson, the sacrifice that they put into serving this Dean.

01:13:12--> 01:13:16

May Allah subhanho wa Taala allow these gatherings to be an inspiration for us all.

01:13:17--> 01:13:58

May we adjust our ways? Maybe find our path, maybe find inspiration, maybe find guidance, maybe find strength? Maybe learn what our moral compass should be maybe understand our priorities. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to live with sacrifice in this dunya May we find it easy to sacrifice and overcome leaving our comforts? May Allah subhanahu set that up, give us the opportunity to serve Him with honor and Lea live in his dunya with honor and leave this dunya with the honor of shahada as well. Well, some Allahu Allah Allah said Mohammed Salam aleykum rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh
