I'm your host, Kareem Abu Zaid,

00:01:17--> 00:01:22

a new series called righteous companions.

00:01:24--> 00:01:33

And I would love to begin that series of episodes about the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:34--> 00:01:37

with a beautiful verse in Surah tober

00:01:38--> 00:01:41

Allah subhanho wa Taala said,

00:02:18--> 00:02:19

to embrace Islam.

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

The immediate people

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

who accepted Islam from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

who believed in his message

00:02:32--> 00:02:58

from the immigrants, those who dwell in Medina and also from Al unser, the place where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the immigrants later on after 13 years in Mecca migrated to witches in Medina and those who followed them exactly

00:02:59--> 00:03:04

in faith well Edina tada Oh whom Bs and

00:03:06--> 00:03:28

we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to be amongst those who follow exactly the footsteps of will Mahajan and will answer in faith. Why are other your loved 1101 Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying, am will pleased with them.

00:03:29--> 00:03:33

And they are will pleased with Allah subhana wa Taala.

00:03:35--> 00:03:37

And he prepared for them

00:03:38--> 00:03:47

a paradise beneath which river flows. Indeed, this is the ultimate success.

00:03:49--> 00:03:53

Brothers and sisters in Islam. It is an honor

00:03:54--> 00:03:59

to talk about the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

It is so touching to me personally. Because I love all of them in a way that you cannot imagine.

00:04:10--> 00:04:31

and hoping in Allah subhanho wa Taala in the different direction, that I will be with them. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says Allah Maru man had a person will be with those whom he loved brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:04:32--> 00:04:38

Why? righteous companions? I mean, why this series?

00:04:39--> 00:04:46

I was blessed before to present to the viewers of Hodor TV.

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

More than one theory, the inevitable journey and also the best stories from the Quran. And I always before I begin, actually

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

Citing and narrating the actual content of the theory, I explained to my viewers Why?

00:05:10--> 00:05:34

Why do we talk about the companions? What motivates you to learn about the companions? Why do we need to learn about the companions? what justifies you to sit in front of you in front of someone like myself and justifies me to use that airtime? In order to talk about such a subject?

00:05:35--> 00:05:42

Is it because we don't have anything else to talk about? All we really need that subject?

00:05:43--> 00:06:21

inshallah, in this episode, and maybe the next two episodes again, I will spend sometimes, some time before I actually embark on talking about the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But I want to warn you, that I'm not going to talk about their biography, no, very brief, very brief, addressing of some of the events that took place in the lives of some of these companions, in order to serve the objective

00:06:22--> 00:06:57

for which we are talking about righteous companions. Now it's time to know why are we talking about the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? Because based on this, we will talk about them. Brothers and sisters in Islam. There are seven reasons, seven reasons why should we learn about righteous companions? Why should we learn about the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:06:58--> 00:07:05

The first reason is, the oma lacks role models.

00:07:06--> 00:07:13

We do not have people that we can adopt their lifestyle.

00:07:14--> 00:07:21

We see a lot of Muslims coming back to their Deen all over the world.

00:07:22--> 00:07:34

Don't despair, my dear brother, my dear sister, don't a lot of Muslims. They are coming back to the deen. And you know what? They are searching for the pure Deen.

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

But unfortunately, they don't have living role models to help them

00:07:43--> 00:07:57

carry on. It is difficult. They feel like strangers. And this is something that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did expect for the true believers.

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

So they need some people, role models in front of them in order to adopt an act the way that they acted.

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

We know that Allah subhanho wa Taala made the messengers and the prophets to be a living example for their followers.

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

And in a lot of cases, and this is actually mentioned in the Quran, that the disbelievers sometimes would request that the messenger would be an angel.

00:08:31--> 00:08:40

An angel, Allah subhana wa Taala tells them if the messenger is an angel, he would not then become a role model for you.

00:08:42--> 00:09:32

Because if the messenger does something, while the messenger is an angel, not a human being, then he commands you to do that thing. What are you going to say? You're going to say that he is an angel and a human being. That is why the messenger because he is the schwa. He is the example that you must follow. He's a human being like you. He is also someone who eats and drinks. Maris goes to the market. He does everything he has a family to take care of. But at the same time, he's able to attain righteousness and piety. In some cases, the people will say, this is the Messenger of Allah. He is supported by why by the revelation.

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

He is supported by Allah subhanho wa Taala that he does not fall into major sins. That is why the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam are the ideal. We know that our absolute example is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam delivered his message to people who lived around him who

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

not supported by the revelation, who are human beings like you and me.

00:10:06--> 00:10:24

And you know what they were able to attain a high level of piety and righteousness. And that is why we need to learn about them in order to be able, brothers and sisters in Islam, to adopt their example in the lives

00:10:26--> 00:11:04

why righteous companions must be that example. Why righteous companions are the people whom we should look at. Right now brothers and sisters in Islam. Unfortunately, we do not have role models in the oma. We don't. And if they are, they are very few and they are hidden all over the place. They are hidden in different places. And in the absence of role models, you will find that media outlets, TV, movies, hollywood

00:11:05--> 00:11:26

picture making people football that sport organizations the sports organization, football, soccer, you name it basketball, they present it to our youth, to our Muslim children, people who are not deserving to be role models for our upcoming generations.

00:11:28--> 00:12:33

Right now, you will find sisters, who follow the footsteps of an actress. She would like to speak like her, she would like to dress like her or a brother, who would mimic a football player. Meanwhile, he knows that football player drinks alcohol, he commits adultery and so on. So in the absence of role models, different organizations outlets introduced to the oma people who do not deserve to be role models for us. That is why it is the time now. It is the time now to bring back the people who deserve to be the role models for us, which is righteous companions. The question that we ask why righteous companions deserve to play that role in our lives? We will take a short

00:12:33--> 00:12:39

break and we will come back in sha Allah to answer this question.

00:12:40--> 00:13:11

Remember, we are still answering this question. In the first episode of the series righteous companions? Why righteous companions? And we answered the first reason because we lack role models. We need role models, and the companions are the ideal role models for us. Why? Let's answer this after a short break, don't go away. Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:13:26--> 00:13:54

The second rule of n mean a second, that is the letter mean. So if the first mean is non vowel, or second, followed by a vowel me, so I will merge the face in the mirror, and I would pronounce them as one word manner whom Minh and was put abundantly on the virtues of seek refuge with Allah from the outcast system, especially for the free society. He's got to recite it out loud.

00:14:04--> 00:14:05


00:14:18--> 00:14:24

make sure it's done that way. He then knew where he then thank you for joining us.

00:14:46--> 00:14:49

Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

brothers and sisters in Islam, we'll come back to righteous companions why righteous companions because

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

We lack role models, why righteous companions must be our role models. You know why? Because the one who knows the inner self, of all of his creation,

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

braise them.

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

Allah, Allah, Allah who.

00:15:23--> 00:15:27

And when Allah subhanho wa Taala praises someone. It's done.

00:15:29--> 00:15:38

The certainly tirmidhi beautiful Hadith, even through the scholars of Hadith have talked about its authenticity.

00:15:39--> 00:15:59

A bit when I was talking to another person in front of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he told him this. If I praise you, that means you're done, you're helpless. It's over. No one can bring you down.

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

And if I defame you, or if I bring you down,

00:16:05--> 00:16:51

if I do them, if I disgrace you, then it's over. No one can elevate you anymore. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commented and he said, There Lika Bula Allah mean, this is Allah. When Allah subhana wa Taala praises someone, it's over. It's over. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala knows what's inside each one of us, brothers and sisters in Islam. Let's see what Allah subhana wa Taala said regarding these righteous companions. Beside the first verse that I quoted at the beginning of the episode, that he said I am pleased with them.

00:16:54--> 00:17:02

There are verses in Surah kill hash, where Allah subhanaw taala spoke about the immigrants and an answer individually.

00:17:04--> 00:17:28

When it came to the spoils of war, the booty foo how they should be distributed, how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam should distribute them. Allah subhanho wa Taala told the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this little fukao in Mojave rinella Dena ocurrido min the more and more Wiley Mia beta una

00:17:53--> 00:18:00

and their wealth in order to adhere to the commander of Allah subhanho wa Taala to migrate from Mecca to Medina.

00:18:02--> 00:18:36

You have una Mina, la You are the one they are seeking the bounty and the pleasure of Allah when they did this, when they accepted to abandon their homes and their willings and their wealth and leave it for Allah subhanho wa Taala they will not do enough to show off. They will do it for Allah subhana wa tada and Allah subhana wa Taala is telling you in the Quran, or the Eco saw Dooku Indeed, those are the truthful.

00:18:38--> 00:19:19

There was a companion His name is so high or Viola one and inshallah in the series, we will talk about him in his way out. The disbelievers quote him, they told him at a time so Luca, Shakira, you came to our school, now you made all this money and you want to leave with it. No, no way. So he tells them, if I leave you the money, will you let me adhere to the command of Allah subhana wa Tada. They said yes, he told them the money in this place and displays and displays go take it.

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

He lived all his belongings brothers and sisters in Islam, seeking the pleasure of Allah.

00:19:27--> 00:19:36

Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed a verse regarding him when us our films kodra female star Dracula novel hacking our Abdullah

00:19:37--> 00:19:45

Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala says wamena semi sharena EVO

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

and some of the people he will trade everything will sell everything just for the pleasure of Allah

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

Part of what Allah and that was to hide. Brothers and sisters in Islam. Allah subhanho wa Taala said about the more hygiene that they were the truthful, the water bottle and saw

00:20:12--> 00:20:14

one lady in a

And he told him, that is your brother, Saudi Arabia called up the rock man. And he told him Yeah,

00:21:37--> 00:21:42

look at my house, take half. Look at my wolf take half

00:21:43--> 00:21:55

brothers and sisters in Islam. They prefer the immigrants over themselves when they are disparate when they are so in need for it.

00:21:56--> 00:22:09

Brothers and sisters in Islam, those are the successful. Another verse where Allah subhanho wa Taala called both Elmo hygiene. And we'll answer that true believers.

00:22:10--> 00:22:11

One lady,

00:22:15--> 00:22:17

Goofy savvy

00:22:19--> 00:22:28

and those who believed and migrated the immigrants and they strove in the cause of Allah. There is a big one.

00:22:30--> 00:22:39

And those who hosted them, given them shelter, and they given victory to the deen to the religion of Allah. una

00:22:42--> 00:23:22

una haka. nahoko. Indeed, those are the true believers. No one in the face of this earth can judge the faith of another human being the only one who can judge your faith is the knower of the heart. La Ilaha Illa Who? Allah subhana wa tada in the Koran. He is saying those are the true believers. Those are the true believers lahoma they will earn forgiveness for the shortcomings. What is caring and a generous provision, from the most generous are a Boolean I mean, brothers and sisters in Islam.

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

We must actually take them as role models. Based on this verse in Surah. Nisa, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, One

00:24:11--> 00:24:49

he will abode in the abidan the Hellfire for eternity. Brothers and sisters in Islam. Allah subhana wa Taala raised that generation, the best generation ever walked in the face of this earth, the generation of the companions, it is time for you. If you want to follow the footsteps of somebody to learn about them again. It is time for all of us. For all of us, brothers and sisters in Islam, to take the books out to learn about the generation

00:24:50--> 00:24:58

brothers and sisters in Islam. A lot of forces out there they want to split us

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

To place a wall between us and that generation,

00:25:06--> 00:25:43

break that wall. And inshallah I'm hoping in Allah subhanho wa Taala my hope is only in Allah subhanho wa Taala that this series of episodes, righteous companions will contribute to the breaking of this wall to the destruction of this wall that we ended up merging, merging, merging again with that beautiful generation, the generation that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about them, my companions

00:25:45--> 00:26:21

I have not finished talking about the first reason why righteous companions. Yet my time is up for this episode insha Allah, don't miss the next episode of righteous companions. I will continue on with the first reason and hoping insha Allah to talk about the second, the third and the fourth and the fifth and the sixth and the seventh reason why righteous companions till then Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
