They Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam will utter manual at Milania Allah Haji rehaul Killa he Ultramarine while early he was Sufi woman who

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

We continue with our Friday evening Hanukkah, where we're going through the Syrah of our beloved Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so,

00:00:58--> 00:01:08

so far in the medina stage, we have covered the four main projects that are sort of why he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam embarked upon

00:01:10--> 00:01:12

when he had arrived in El Medina.

00:01:13--> 00:01:14

And so we spoke about

00:01:16--> 00:01:38

the building of the masjid, the establishing the establishment of the ties of brotherhood, between the mahadji rune and the Ansara. We spoke about the covenant, that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam designed. And finally we spoke about the establishment of a military.

00:01:39--> 00:01:55

Now, before we get into the next main event, in this era, and so usually the writers of Sierra after talking about the Hadron, they move on to the next main event. And that is the battle of Voyager.

00:01:57--> 00:02:25

Before getting into that, it would be good to cover some main events that occurred between the hedgehog and the Battle of Voyager. And so we're looking at approximately two years because the Battle of thunder took place in the second year of the Hitler. So in between that between the Hijra and the battle, let's look at some of the main events that had occurred. And so today we're going to talk about

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

the marriage

00:02:29--> 00:02:31

of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

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

To his wife, Aisha, Radi Allahu Allah.

00:02:36--> 00:02:50

And next week, we'll look at some of the tissue behind some of the mean legislations that were mandated upon the Muslims that were revealed by Allah

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

during this period

00:02:55--> 00:02:57

of the first two years of the Hadron,

00:02:58--> 00:03:01

and then after that, we'll get into the battles

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

and the Battle of that.

00:03:05--> 00:03:14

And so rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married Aisha Radi Allahu anha, towards the end of his time in Mecca.

00:03:17--> 00:03:22

But he did not consummate the marriage until he moved to El Medina.

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

And so, he married her when she was

00:03:29--> 00:03:31

at the age of six in NACA,

00:03:32--> 00:03:37

but he did not consumate that marriage. He did not live with her until

00:03:38--> 00:03:51

he moved to an Medina and this was in the first year of the hijra, and specifically in the month of Shawwal. So we can see, it was very early on, as soon as he migrated to El Medina.

00:03:52--> 00:04:03

Now, the age of Sharabi, Allahu anhu, as we mentioned, was very young. And this is an issue that many reads against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:04:05--> 00:04:08

saying that our Prophet married a child.

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

And so for this reason, it is important for us

00:04:13--> 00:04:15

to be able to counter this claim.

00:04:18--> 00:04:24

And we'll do that by first going through the reasons for why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:04:26--> 00:04:28

Married the women that he married

00:04:30--> 00:04:36

and then we'll look at his marriage to eyeshadow, the wall behind her on its own.

00:04:37--> 00:04:38

And so

00:04:39--> 00:04:44

the enemies of Islam tried to attack Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:04:46--> 00:04:58

they tried to attack his personality to try to discredit him. So they talked about his marriage to Aisha Radi Allahu Allah. They talked about how he married so many different women.

00:04:59--> 00:05:00


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

He tried to paint this picture of him being a womanizer.

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

So let us look at the married life of Rasulullah sallallahu. He was just looking at the chronological order.

00:05:15--> 00:05:20

From the time he was younger until the October Atari, he passed away,

00:05:21--> 00:05:33

you know, just looking at his married life is enough to refute this claim. And so let's look at his married life. It begins when he was a young man.

00:05:35--> 00:05:41

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did not have any intimate relations with any women.

00:05:44--> 00:05:47

All the way until the age of 25.

00:05:49--> 00:05:52

And we have to remember that in the environment in which he lived in

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

you know, the days of Jackie Leah.

00:05:57--> 00:05:58

And we spoke about this previously,

00:05:59--> 00:06:03

adultery fornication was rampant, widespread.

00:06:07--> 00:06:12

And there is a Hadith of Aisha Radi Allahu anha, in which she mentions the various kinds of

00:06:13--> 00:06:17

intimate relations that men would have with women, and how

00:06:19--> 00:06:34

you know, there was fornication, there was prostitution, etc. And how this was normal. And yet, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not involved in any of that.

00:06:37--> 00:06:38

It was a corrupt environment.

00:06:42--> 00:06:48

And yet, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not involved in any of it all the way until the age of 25.

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

So what happens at the age of 25?

00:06:52--> 00:06:53

He gets married

00:06:54--> 00:06:55

for the first time.

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

And so who does it get married to?

00:06:59--> 00:07:03

Khadija are the Allahu Allah and we spoke about his marriage to her.

00:07:05--> 00:07:11

He gets married at the age of 25, to a woman who is 15 years older than him.

00:07:13--> 00:07:20

Khadija on the Allahu Anhu at the time was 40 years old. Not only that, but she was either a widow or

00:07:21--> 00:07:22

basically she had been divorced.

00:07:24--> 00:07:34

And also while he's still alive, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being from the noble family that he was from, he could have chosen from any of the women in Natella, he had wished.

00:07:35--> 00:07:42

If he was interested in fulfilling his personal desires, he would have chosen for himself a young, beautiful woman,

00:07:44--> 00:07:48

not a woman who is 15 years older than him.

00:07:51--> 00:07:57

After that was sort of what he said, Allahu Allahu wa sallam remains in this marriage with Hadith or on the Allahu anha

00:07:58--> 00:08:03

until he reaches the age of 50

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

until he reaches the age of 50. Now

00:08:11--> 00:08:19

men with strong desires for women would have those desires from a young age until the age of about 50.

00:08:23--> 00:08:27

And yet, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remained married to only one woman.

00:08:29--> 00:08:33

And that was Khadija on the one hand her until she passes away.

00:08:37--> 00:08:51

And so imagine from the age of 25, to the age of 50, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remains, with this one woman, who as we mentioned is already 15 years older than him

00:08:52--> 00:08:56

after that, Hadith or the Allahu Anhu passes away,

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

and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remain single for some time.

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

And then later on, he gets married to

00:09:07--> 00:09:10

soda, or the Allahu Akbar soda Zimra

00:09:12--> 00:09:14

who is also another widow.

00:09:17--> 00:09:19

And the reason why he married her

00:09:21--> 00:09:32

was that she had migrated to have the shutter and the senior. And when she came back to Mecca, her husband had passed away.

00:09:33--> 00:09:37

And so Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam used to care for his companions.

00:09:39--> 00:09:43

And he thought she's a widow. She's alone.

00:09:44--> 00:09:51

And so he married her for this reason. Again, so they're only allowed to hang her is not some young woman.

00:09:53--> 00:09:55

He marries her when she is in her 50s.

00:09:57--> 00:10:00

And we know this because later on in a

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


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

so the only one who gives up her her night to usher on your walk behind her, because she was very old

00:10:16--> 00:10:20

and then after that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam migrates to El Medina

00:10:22--> 00:10:28

in the last 10 years of his life, this is when he marries many women.

00:10:30--> 00:10:36

When he migrates to Medina, and so imagine, he is now 53 years old,

00:10:37--> 00:10:43

for the next 10 years until he passes away, he marries many women.

00:10:46--> 00:10:52

To the extent that when he passed away, so long ago, he was, he left behind nine widows.

00:10:54--> 00:11:00

He left behind, nine widows. So, the question is, why did this change occur?

00:11:03--> 00:11:09

What's the reason for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to all of a sudden marry so many women?

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

Is it as the enemies of Islam say that he was a womanizer? No, because we've already refuted that claim.

00:11:19--> 00:11:20


00:11:21--> 00:11:30

So why did this change occur? And what was the reason for him sallallahu alayhi wasallam marrying so many women, there are several reasons. First of all,

00:11:32--> 00:11:36

to forge alliances with different crimes.

00:11:38--> 00:11:42

We mentioned how Arabia was a very tribal society.

00:11:43--> 00:11:49

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam wanted to devote all of his efforts to the spread of Islam.

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

Everything that he would do, even his decisions in marriage would be based on that benefit for Islam. And so

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

he wouldn't do anything for his own personal satisfaction for his own personal desires. And so the reason why one of the reasons why he married many women was

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

to bring those tribes that he would marry from to bring them closer to Islam. An example of this was his marriage to God or on the Allahu Allah.

00:12:26--> 00:12:30

And so she was from the tribe of Ben Ben who animus Dalek.

00:12:31--> 00:12:35

After he married her, the entire tribe became Muslim.

00:12:38--> 00:12:41

We also have the example of heavy burden on the Allahu Anhu.

00:12:43--> 00:12:47

And so, she was one of those who migrated to alhaja.

00:12:49--> 00:12:51

With her husband, who ended up

00:12:52--> 00:12:57

a PA stating he became a Christian. And so she went through a very tough time.

00:12:59--> 00:13:01

And she was the daughter of who,

00:13:02--> 00:13:04

the daughter of Abu Sophia,

00:13:05--> 00:13:11

one of the staunch enemies of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam. So later on, her husband passes away,

00:13:12--> 00:13:18

and Rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam send a letter to Anna Joshi

00:13:20--> 00:13:26

asking him to marry the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to whom Habiba

00:13:27--> 00:13:32

and so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted to marry her, out of sympathy for her.

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

And also, and also to bring about Sofia and closer to Islam.

00:13:43--> 00:13:49

And to soften his stance towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this is exactly what ended up happening.

00:13:50--> 00:13:54

In fact, when Abu Sofia and heard

00:13:55--> 00:14:19

about the news that the prophets that Allahu Allah had married on Habiba his daughter, he said and who is better, and who could possibly be better to marry her then Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So Abu Sofia knew about the lineage of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So that's how he looked at it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is from a noble lineage

00:14:20--> 00:14:21

from DeLeeuw Hashem

00:14:22--> 00:14:36

and he was proud that his daughter is marrying into this family. But his issue with with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was over religion over the deen. And so the point here is that

00:14:38--> 00:14:47

this softened his stance towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and eventually we know that Abu Sofia and later on, he embraces is

00:14:48--> 00:14:52

also among the reasons the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married many women

00:14:53--> 00:14:56

was his care for his companions.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

Like the example we gave up

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

of soda Romeo was behind.

00:15:05--> 00:15:18

Another example is on selama or the Aloha. She was also one of those who had made hijra to and Habesha and when she came back with her husband

00:15:21--> 00:15:26

to Arabia and they migrated to El Medina.

00:15:28--> 00:15:30

Her husband passed away Abu Salah

00:15:33--> 00:15:37

and on Salem out of nowhere and had a very loving relationship with her husband.

00:15:39--> 00:15:44

And so when he passed away she was extremely saddened and

00:15:46--> 00:15:47

extremely depressed.

00:15:49--> 00:15:53

And so, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught her a DUA to make

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

the Oh ALLAH

00:15:58--> 00:16:15

Livni female, see if it give me something better than this calamity that has befallen me on Salah Maradi Allah I wonder, you know, how is that possible? How can I possibly be given something better than an Abu selama? She was in love with him.

00:16:17--> 00:16:22

But she said her Eman in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam meet her to make that dua.

00:16:23--> 00:16:33

And so not long after that, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam marries her. And Ansel amaro the Allahu Hanhart says, that was the answer of my dua.

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

And without a doubt,

00:16:37--> 00:16:50

Allah subhanahu taddle replaced her with someone far better than her husband, abou selama. The point here is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:16:52--> 00:16:53

he took care of his companions.

00:16:55--> 00:16:56


00:16:58--> 00:17:04

and so if one of them passes away, who better who better

00:17:06--> 00:17:30

for their wives to marry then him salAllahu alayhi wasallam. And what's interesting to note with all of these marriages was that all of these women were older, were older in age, it's not that he was aiming for some young, beautiful women. And that was, you know, what was motivating him and, and driving him to get married to these women. Thirdly,

00:17:32--> 00:17:42

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted to strengthen his ties with his closest companions. And so Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had

00:17:44--> 00:17:54

a strong, brotherly feeling towards his companions. So, he wanted to add family ties to this Islamic Brotherhood.

00:17:56--> 00:18:01

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was with his companions in the thick and thin.

00:18:02--> 00:18:13

They were together in moments of ease in moments of hardship. They had spent time at home, they had spent time traveling, they had to spend time on the battlefields.

00:18:15--> 00:18:16

And so

00:18:17--> 00:18:21

there was this bond and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted to make this body even stronger.

00:18:22--> 00:18:36

And so what do we notice about certain marriages that they were to his closest companions to the daughters of his closest companions? So Abu Bakr Radi Allahu anha, or Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah and

00:18:37--> 00:18:40

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam marries his daughter Asha

00:18:42--> 00:18:50

Rama Ravi, Allahu Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married his daughter Hafsa Radi Allahu Akbar.

00:18:52--> 00:18:57

And these are the two closest companions to rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:19:01--> 00:19:30

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also married his own daughters to some of his closest companions. And to Earth man or the Allahu Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married one of his daughters to him, when she passes away, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam weds Earth Maradiaga, who had another daughter of His, to the point where when she passed away, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if I,

00:19:32--> 00:19:42

if I had 99 daughters, if I had 99 daughters, I would marry them to Earth man, even our Fern or the Allah, one after the other.

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

We also know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married his daughter, Fatima, probably a one to two highly in Erbil toilet Rhodiola and so this is one of the reasons the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

would marry the women that he married, fourthly

00:20:05--> 00:20:07

to convey the deen of Allah.

00:20:08--> 00:20:09

And so

00:20:11--> 00:20:16

the deen of Allah is not only taken from the Quran, but also from what from this.

00:20:19--> 00:20:26

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we learn about his life and his sunnah as a leader,

00:20:28--> 00:20:29

and as a teacher,

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

and as an Imam,

00:20:33--> 00:20:34


00:20:35--> 00:20:37

as a fighter,

00:20:39--> 00:20:58

and also as a family man. And as a husband. We have hundreds of companions to narrate to us what sort of leader the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was, what sort of Teacher He sallallahu alayhi wasallam was, but how many companions do we have who can narrate to us

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

how his family life was?

00:21:03--> 00:21:08

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not have that many children who survived after him.

00:21:09--> 00:21:12

In fact, when he passed away, he only had one daughter left.

00:21:13--> 00:21:27

And that was thought tomorrow the Allahu, and even she passed away shortly after himself Allah Allah, Allah us Allah. So who would convey to us how the family life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was?

00:21:30--> 00:21:31

Obviously it would be his wife.

00:21:33--> 00:21:35

Now, if there were several wives,

00:21:37--> 00:21:41

then if one of them forgets, then the other one will remember.

00:21:44--> 00:21:45

And so

00:21:49--> 00:21:57

if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam only had one wife, it would be difficult for that one wife to recall everything.

00:21:59--> 00:22:05

Also, so since she is only since she is the only one, she could easily be discredited,

00:22:07--> 00:22:09

because it's only one source.

00:22:10--> 00:22:16

And that is why the enemies of Islam, they like to pick on certain companions.

00:22:17--> 00:22:25

Why? Because they narrated to us, so many Hadees. So you have the example of Korea or Viola,

00:22:26--> 00:22:32

if you can bring down the Abu Huraira or the Allahu, and you have brought down a huge

00:22:33--> 00:22:42

part of Islam. He is the one who narrated to us 1000s of Hadith more than any other companion, why do they pick on him? Because he is one.

00:22:44--> 00:22:45

If you discredit him,

00:22:47--> 00:22:59

you can discredit the entire team. And so, likewise, if it was only one wife, you could easily discredit her. But if you have many wives, how can you discredit that? Also,

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

the family life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is one of the most important aspects of his sunnah. Because it relates to each and every single one of us.

00:23:13--> 00:23:22

Not every one of us will be an imam. Not every one of us will be a leader. Not every single one of us will be a teacher.

00:23:24--> 00:23:39

But every single one of us will be a member of the family will be a father or will be a husband. So how will we learn how the conduct of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was with his family?

00:23:40--> 00:23:55

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had many wives, so that they could convey to us this body of knowledge of how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lived in his private life.

00:23:57--> 00:23:59

And so many of the Sunnah that we have

00:24:01--> 00:24:23

narrated to us related to how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would eat, how he would sit, how he would treat his servants, how he would treat his wives, how he would spend his nights. All of that has been narrated to us through through the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:24:26--> 00:24:27


00:24:29--> 00:24:46

the most controversial marriages of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was his marriage to Aisha Radi Allahu Allah. And also Xena been Josh Radi Allahu Allah, and the reasons for that.

00:24:48--> 00:24:53

First of all, I actually Allahu Allah we already mentioned because of her young age.

00:24:54--> 00:24:58

As for Xena be to judge then it was controversial

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

Because of how the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam married her after she was married to his adopted son XID Robbie, Allah

00:25:12--> 00:25:16

Subhana Allah when we look at these two marriages, we see

00:25:17--> 00:25:19

that they are both are exceptional.

00:25:21--> 00:25:28

These are the two targeted marriages of the enemies of Islam. And yet these are the only two marriages

00:25:30--> 00:25:34

that were not initiated by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam but rather

00:25:37--> 00:25:45

they were divinely inspired. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is the one who told the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam to marry these two women.

00:25:49--> 00:25:56

And so with regards to Xena been to Jerash we have the ayah in Surah Raza

00:25:58--> 00:26:01

that mentions her marriage

00:26:03--> 00:26:04


00:26:07--> 00:26:12

in fact, there is no one mentioned from the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam by name

00:26:13--> 00:26:16

besides the the Radi Allahu Akbar, in the entire Quran,

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

Fela merkaba Z don't mean her Ouattara and this is a Surah Al Aqsa as for her isharo The Allahu Allah.

00:26:27--> 00:26:55

It was divinely inspired through a dream that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had, and this is mentioned in Sahih al Bukhari. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to Aisha Radi Allahu anha Gibreel came to me, and I saw you covered by a curtain. And when I opened the curtain, I saw you and Gibreel told me, this is your wife, in the dunya and in the Acura

00:26:57--> 00:27:10

and so Rasul Allah, he sort of loved and had him sort of saw this dream twice. And we know that the dreams of the prophets, the MDR, or revelation from Allah, that they are supposed to act upon.

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

Now, there are two kinds of people who will attack

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

these marriages.

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

One is a Muslim who is weakened his email.

00:27:28--> 00:27:32

You know, how could the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam marry such a young woman?

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

And so the reply to

00:27:38--> 00:27:40

to these Muslims would be that

00:27:41--> 00:27:45

if you're a Muslim, you submit and you don't question and you don't object.

00:27:46--> 00:27:47

And so

00:27:48--> 00:27:51

this was a command from Allah for the prophets of Allah who had he was

00:27:53--> 00:27:54

he was acting on his own.

00:27:57--> 00:28:01

And so a Muslim is one who submits and does not object.

00:28:04--> 00:28:07

As for the other group of people, they are the kuffar.

00:28:08--> 00:28:11

And so for them,

00:28:12--> 00:28:15

why do they attack these marriages? Because

00:28:18--> 00:28:21

they want to attack the personality of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:28:23--> 00:28:25

And so their problem is not

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

their problem is not that

00:28:30--> 00:28:44

is not this marriage in particular, but rather because they don't believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as being a messenger from Allah. And so the issue of the marriage of eyeshadow, the Sangha

00:28:45--> 00:28:46

is just an excuse.

00:28:48--> 00:28:58

And so even if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had not married her, they would still be attacking him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the problem is deeper than that.

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

And Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds his Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam of the problem that his opponents have with him.

00:29:15--> 00:29:16

What is Allah subhanahu Attallah say

00:29:18--> 00:29:23

Kadina Allah mu in Abu Leia, Zulu calorie, your Kulu

00:29:25--> 00:29:30

we know Mohammed, that what they see about you it grieves you.

00:29:31--> 00:29:35

It saddens you. So in the Himalaya you can zebu neck.

00:29:36--> 00:29:39

Well, I can avoid immediately ayatullah here.

00:29:40--> 00:29:50

However, it is not you that they are denying. It's not about you, oh Muhammad. Don't worry about what they say about you. It's not about you, but rather

00:29:51--> 00:29:58

but rather it is the Ayat of Allah that the wrongdoers have a problem with

00:30:01--> 00:30:05

So they are not disbelieving in Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:30:06--> 00:30:20

But rather they are disbelieving in the message that he has brought. And so they are only attacking the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because he is the messenger. They are not attacking his personality just because of his personality.

00:30:22--> 00:30:25

But because he was conveying the message of Allah subhanho wa taala.

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


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

having said that,

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

we can easily counter their attack

00:30:37--> 00:30:45

concerning this marriage of his tag Aisha Radi Allahu Allah Allahu anha. And so first of all we say

00:30:47--> 00:30:49

that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:30:51--> 00:30:58

did not marry any young woman or even any virgin woman besides your shoulder, the Allahu Akbar.

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

He was an exceptional case.

00:31:04--> 00:31:05

If you want to look at

00:31:06--> 00:31:10

the marriage is initiated by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:31:12--> 00:31:18

And not at those marriages that were initiated from above the seven heavens. Then look at

00:31:20--> 00:31:21

his marriages besides

00:31:23--> 00:31:30

besides the other Isha and Xena did to Josh Rhodiola. You will see how he married ordinary women

00:31:32--> 00:31:38

who were actually much older than him and they were widows.

00:31:40--> 00:31:40


00:31:42--> 00:31:54

we say that rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was 54 years old, when he consummated the marriage with a happy shot all day long. In El Medina, yes, he was 54 years old.

00:31:55--> 00:32:01

However, he was young, even though he was old and age.

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


00:32:05--> 00:32:06

First of all.

00:32:10--> 00:32:13

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam met

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

one of the delegations in

00:32:19--> 00:32:43

prior to the br of Malacca. We spoke about how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was going from one tribe to another from the tribes that would come for Hajj presenting to them Islam at Mina, one of the tribes that he met the tribe of Robbia. At that time, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was 50 years old. 50 years old.

00:32:44--> 00:32:47

The head of the tribe went back to his people

00:32:49--> 00:32:52

and referred to a feminine soul Allahu alayhi wa sallam as

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

as a young man.

00:32:55--> 00:32:57

He said I met a very young man.

00:32:59--> 00:33:00


00:33:01--> 00:33:02


00:33:03--> 00:33:06

although he was old in age, it didn't appear on him.

00:33:09--> 00:33:10


00:33:12--> 00:33:18

when NS Radi Allahu hang narrated the story of the Hijra of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:33:19--> 00:33:27

And we mentioned this as well. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made his huge Road to El Medina during that journey.

00:33:28--> 00:33:30

And as Radi Allahu Allah says that,

00:33:31--> 00:33:40

when the two of them the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Eng were traveling, and they would come across different people.

00:33:42--> 00:33:45

The people would recognize Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah,

00:33:47--> 00:33:50

but they would not recognize the Prophet sallallahu either USA

00:33:53--> 00:33:58

and they would refer to Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah as an as an old man.

00:34:01--> 00:34:03

And they would say he is with another man who is young

00:34:07--> 00:34:08

in the hedgerow

00:34:10--> 00:34:20

they've been Hijri Rahima Allahu taala. He says, regarding this, that this shows that Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah and His age would show on him.

00:34:22--> 00:34:23

On the other hand,

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

it will not show when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what do we know about the age difference between Abu Bakr and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?

00:34:37--> 00:34:39

It was only an age difference of two years.

00:34:41--> 00:34:55

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was older than Abu Bakr by only two years. And yet, everyone is saying that we have saw and we have seen an old man referring to Abu Bakr, who is with a younger man.

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


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

we know from the Sunnah

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to race with his wife, Aisha Radi Allahu Han.

00:35:07--> 00:35:09

And so, one day

00:35:10--> 00:35:17

I showed her the Allah Maha. She says that I had a race with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I beat him.

00:35:21--> 00:35:32

When I started to gain some fat, alright shuttle, the Allahu Allah how she says, when she started to gain some weight, I had another race with him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he beat me

00:35:37--> 00:35:38

in this hottie,

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

Aisha Radi Allahu Allah says that she had gained some weight.

00:35:45--> 00:35:49

And that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam be her?

00:35:51--> 00:36:02

What does it show us that even though the prophets on the long run, he was in May be in his mid 50s, or late 50s, he was still very energetic, very healthy.

00:36:05--> 00:36:16

And we also see this in the battles that he had fought, all of which were fought when he was in his 50s, and even early 60s. So all of this shows us that

00:36:17--> 00:36:32

although a man can be old in age, he can be young, in his energy in his personality, and therefore, there will be no issue for him to marry a younger woman.

00:36:34--> 00:36:37

And we can also add to this, that

00:36:40--> 00:37:09

for many centuries, after that, you know, in the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi, wasallam, as well as for many centuries after that, it was completely normal among all people of the world. And this is documented, it was completely normal for all the various people from all various civilizations and nations, for them to marry younger women. It was never an issue.

00:37:11--> 00:37:13

If it was an issue,

00:37:14--> 00:37:20

then the enemies of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while he was alive, they would have used this to discredit him.

00:37:23--> 00:37:27

But it wasn't an issue. For centuries after that, again.

00:37:29--> 00:37:33

You don't find anywhere in the attacks of the enemies of Islam

00:37:35--> 00:37:38

throughout history, where they would pick at this issue,

00:37:39--> 00:37:40

it was only

00:37:41--> 00:37:48

in this modern era, that it has become an issue. Why? Because

00:37:49--> 00:38:05

many people are following this Western liberal secular worldview and mindset that tells us that it's not normal for an older man to marry a younger woman.

00:38:08--> 00:38:10

Now I'll conclude with one last point.

00:38:11--> 00:38:12

And that is

00:38:13--> 00:38:16

why was the marriage of eyeshadow the Allahu anha

00:38:17--> 00:38:19

so important.

00:38:22--> 00:38:34

One of the greatest blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us as an owner, was this marriage to Arusha Radi Allahu Allah, and so

00:38:36--> 00:38:42

it would have been a disaster. If the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had not married her. How

00:38:43--> 00:38:48

I Aisha Radi Allahu Anhu had a mind of a scholar.

00:38:49--> 00:39:07

She was bright. She was intelligent, and she was inquisitive in nature. She liked to ask questions. And she describes herself. She says that the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to hear

00:39:08--> 00:39:12

a Hadith from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and immediately they would

00:39:14--> 00:39:19

they would submit and they would act by it. She says, but not me.

00:39:21--> 00:39:31

I would question the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And we have many examples of this. Recorded in so many different Hadith that I showed the Allah who and how would you rate

00:39:33--> 00:39:35

she would object she will say why Yasuda?

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


00:39:40--> 00:39:59

And so, hi Aisha Radi Allahu Allah being the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in fact, being the most beloved wife of Rasulullah sallallahu after Khadija Radi Allahu Allah. She had this informal relationship with the Messenger of Allah and so

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

She would question him, while the other companions, they will not dare do that.

00:40:05--> 00:40:08

The other companions would not dare

00:40:09--> 00:40:18

to question the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so someone who had this private relationship with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:40:20--> 00:40:22

It was needed that we had someone like this,

00:40:24--> 00:40:26

to ask about certain things

00:40:28--> 00:40:39

and sometimes even argue with the Prophet sallallahu himself, obviously, in a respectful manner. You know, we don't say that she was disrespectful. No, she would argue in a respectful manner.

00:40:42--> 00:40:44

And so we learned so much because of that.

00:40:45--> 00:40:48

We learned so much because of that.

00:40:50--> 00:40:54

And that's why I showed her the Allahu anha. She comes among the top scholars of Islam

00:40:57--> 00:40:59

because of the knowledge that she left behind,

00:41:01--> 00:41:16

we have to also understand that her being young gave her that ability because then she also lived many years after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to convey this knowledge to the OMA

00:41:22--> 00:41:26

so she comes among the top four narrators of Hadith

00:41:29--> 00:41:49

so we have a boo Hooray Rhodiola who and then we have Abdullah bin rumor Radi Allahu Anhu. And then we have NS Malik. And then in number four, we have Shodo, the Allahu Allah, in terms of the number of Hadith that were narrated by the companions.

00:41:51--> 00:41:52

And so this marriage

00:41:54--> 00:41:56

of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:41:57--> 00:42:00

It was unique. It was special.

00:42:01--> 00:42:16

In fact, it will it also came as a surprise to her father, Abu Bakar of the law. And so when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam went to Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah to propose for his daughter, mentioning the dream that he had seen.

00:42:17--> 00:42:21

Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah said, I'm your younger brother.

00:42:22--> 00:42:29

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Yes, you are my brother, and your daughter is suitable for me.

00:42:31--> 00:42:35

So he was saying this, again, as we said, not

00:42:37--> 00:42:38

he wasn't saying this

00:42:39--> 00:42:56

as a personal statement, but rather, it was the dream that he had seen. And he knew that the dreams of the MBR or why are revelation from Allah subhanho wa taala. And so he wanted to, he wanted to fulfill,

00:42:57--> 00:43:01

he wanted to fulfill the Command of Allah subhana wa. And so

00:43:02--> 00:43:04

we may not know what is good for us.

00:43:08--> 00:43:10

But Allah subhanahu italianos

00:43:11--> 00:43:14

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had no idea,

00:43:15--> 00:43:22

the blessing that this marriage would bring for our OMA where we are benefiting until this very day.

00:43:24--> 00:43:59

The knowledge that was left behind by Aisha Radi Allahu AI. And so with that we come to the end of tonight's session in sha Allah hotel and next week, we'll move on to some of them. Some of the important fishery hands or legislations that were revealed by Allah subhanahu Attallah in this early period of the medina stage in the first two years after the Hijra of the Prophet Sal allaahu alayhi wa salam to Medina until then Subhana Allah who will be Hambrick head will

00:44:00--> 00:44:09

still Fuuka over to Blue Lake wa salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad, while early he was talking to he he married was salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
