Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam violation of freedom ba with mousseline, Muhammad Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Steven kopieren cathedra from mavado.
brothers sisters, we, today we thought we will talk about
some of the companions of Rasulullah Salah
as being people who
were worthy of emulation people that we can learn from.
And also since we talked about
we talked about
youth leadership and the raising of children.
So, let me
talk to you about the story of
one of the best of them,
of the generation which as far as Adam said, is the best of the generations his own generation.
And the person I want to talk to you about is a person whose name was Baraka.
Baraka was the was a slave. She was a young Amazonian,
young Amazonian girl,
and she was the daughter of Alibaba being up.
And he was, you don't know exactly what the details were how she got captured who captured her what happened, but anyway,
she was sort of as a slave.
And eventually she ended up in the household of Abdullah
Abdullah Abu Talib
so she served there as a servant
to Abdullah and to Amina
bint Wahab who was the one who was the wife of Abdullah bin Abdullah metallic.
I'm gonna level up the metallic
married this lady called Amina from the voices down of yesterday.
And she was from the tribe of Burma.
They came back to Makkah,
which in those days was journey of about 10 days between Makkah and
And he had been his you'll be married all of two weeks. When one day his father of the Waterloo came and said trip, you have to go in a caravan trade caravan to Sham to Syria.
I mean, I was heartbroken because she had been just married two weeks.
And after two weeks husband is going off and these caravan trips were four months together. This is not he was not going for a weekend or something. These were months to get get to form for many months and also they were potentially very hazardous. One was the going itself was tough. Secondly, danger of bandits and all of that.
So I'm gonna
the wife of the 11 of the Metallica was heartbroken. She was very sad she started crying and so on.
But that was when he left.
Now all through this period
Amina was looked after by hers server to was like a friend to her. Baraka
one night, Amina had a dream.
And in this dream, she and this is about two months after husband left. She had a dream. And in this dream she saw a light emanating from her abdomen
and eliminating the hills and valleys of muck.
So she told Baraka, that dream. And she said, I saw his dream in which I saw this light coming out to my abdomen and illuminating the hills and valleys of Makkah. So Baraka asked her, she said, Are you do you think you're pregnant? And she said, Yes, I think so. So, Baraka said inshallah, this is the good news of the birth of a child for you.
Now at that time, and one day Abdulmutallab again
I'm home and said to Amina, you have to leave, go and
go and hide in the hills. Everybody's leaving you. So what happened? He said, because there is this Amazonian king called our ha, who has come with elephants, and he's going to attack. My car is going to destroy the car.
So I mean, I said, Nothing will happen. Nobody
I know will protect his house
of the hotel. He was very, very surprised. And he said, How do you mean, everybody's running? He said, I'm not going, I'm too tired, I'm too sick. And I am not leaving this house. Whatever happens happens. But don't worry, nothing will happen. And the cover will not be destroyed. Anyway, rest of the people will they went away. I mean, remain where she wasn't. We know the story of Abraham which Allah subhanaw taala himself narrated in the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah destroyed abraha and his army
after some time,
the caravan from Syria returned.
But there was no Abdullah with the care of
Abdullah didn't come back.
Obviously, I mean, I was
very upset and she was very anxious. And she asked people and so on
news. Finally, after some time, they got the news that Abdullah died in yesterday, on the way back, that he passed away He is buried.
Amira was so upset, she was like between life and death.
And all through that period, Baraka nurse looked after her.
And then one night
The night was resplendent with lights.
A child was born to army window
and the first person to deliver that child hold that child, the very first person to hold that child was not even the mother of the child because she's delivering the charges. She's not holding. The first person to hold that child in her arms was back.
And that child was Mohammed Salah Holly
Baraka was the first person to hold Mohammed Salah, the newborn child in her hands.
Next morning, after Matalan came, he took the child to the Kaaba, he announced
the birth of his grandson to his favorites and out of all the sons Abdullah and whole Corporation all America rejoiced.
After that, as we know he was sent away with le Masada galana
to be a nurse that we brought up in the
in the desert. And when he was five years old, he was brought back to
back to back home.
well delana was with the mother of Mohamed Salah Amina
one year after that when
Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was six years old.
I mean, I decided to go to your trip to visit her husband.
So she took Baraka and she took Bahama salsa with her.
Mama sauce lm used to always call Barack Obama
his depart used to call her mother.
Now I'm the one that I was against this trip. Because it was a dangerous trip. It was very long the small child going alone. But I mean, I was adamant. And so she joined a caravan she reached your trip. There, she left her son with his maternal uncles. And she would go to the grave of her husband Abdullah will not leave and she would spend some part of the day at the grave and she would weep and so on and so forth.
And then she would come back. So after some time passed, she decided to return to
she again joining the caravan
but as they were returning to Makkah, she was very very sick.
She developed a very high fever
He became delirious because the temperature was so high.
one night they stopped.
They stopped in a place called of war
between which is between Makkah and Medina.
And there she felt that
her time was near.
So she called Monica and she said to her,
I commend my son Mohammed, to your care.
He said that he lost his father while he was before he was born. He was still in my abdomen.
And he lost his father. And now
he's so smart. He's losing his mother,
in front of his eyes.
So be a mother to him, and take care of him. And don't ever leave him.
This is the advice that
I mean, I give to Barack Obama.
And then she died.
So Baraka then
you dug the grave? I mean as grave he dug with her own hands,
and she buried her and then she
returned to Makkah.
There, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was lived with his grandfather of the Rotella
until he passed away two years later. And then he moved to the house of Delhi and Baraka continued to be with Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam
and she also moved to the house of Abu Talib.
Then after time passed, and mamasan grew up
and married for the German toilet for the Alon.
One day they were sitting, I want you to imagine this whole scene, beautiful scene. One day, Mohammed Salah is sitting with Khadija Cobra delana
and he says to Baraka, Yama is my mother. Now I am a married man and you are still not married.
So what do you think if someone came now and asked you to ask to marry you?
So Monica looked at him and she said, I will never leave you.
You are my son, what kind of mother abandons her own son?
So why was there a certain smile, he kissed her on the head. And he looked at his wife earlier the core of Ilana and he said this is Barack.
This is my mother after my own mother.
And she is the rest of my family.
looked at the accidental Cobra
and hadiza delana said to Baraka, she said, Look, you sacrificed your youth, for the sake of Mohammed Salah said, Now he wants to pay back some of the obligation. So for my sake, please agree to be married before you become too old.
So Monica said Who should I marry? My lady who
wants to marry me, man who's this lady? She's some Abyssinian slave woman.
I have no money. Nothing. I'm not some beautiful creature. I'm not some princess or, you know, I was when I was a senior
how they are the law said there is somebody
he said there is this man called Obi bitsight.
Who is from the hundreds of years.
He has come and he wants to marry. Now away he'd been laid off. Elena was a Muslim, from Medina, from Italy.
He said he wants to marry. So she said for my sake, please don't say no. Please agree.
So Monica said okay, she agreed. She married him. And they went to sleep. And then she had a son and his name was Iman.
So from that moment onwards used to be called home Ivan, the mother of
that became a cornea.
That marriage didn't last too long because her husband died. He passed away. And Baraka then Roman then returned to live with her son Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in the house for digital camera.
In the house was also originally
available. There was him who was Khadija
The Alon has a daughter from her previous first husband. And there was they've been hiding
these three other people who also lived in the same house.
Now they've been hiding that
was an out of use young guy, young boy. He was wrong. Dr have come in,
in the 90s. And he had been captured and sort of as a sniff in the market of Makkah, and Khadija Dylan has nephew bought him and gifted presentative to his art, the villa. And Satya Villa gave him to masasa as a slave, immediately, freedom.
And he grew up in the house or sources of like his son.
They became so close. And when harissa became such a beloved person to the saucer center, and he loved us so much, that after some time, the father and uncle have they've been hiding that there was nothing for the father and son who was rushed. Somebody told them that look why we saw your son in Makkah. So they came to Makkah, they asked around, and they came to the house of Lhasa.
And they said, Yeah, Mohamed, Salah, Salah, this is our son, and we have come to take him back. And if you want some money or something we are happy to give you
to take our son back with us.
As soon as Allison said, I'm not interested in any money from you. I'm not interested in anything. As far as taking your son back is concerned. He said, Ask your son.
If he agrees, he can do
So the call will be heard that. And now we shall have asked him. Do you know this man? He said yes. This is my father. Do you know this man? Yes, you'd like
he said they have come to take you with them back home. Would you like to go?
They've been harissa. vilano said I will not leave you and go.
And he said to his father and uncle, this man has been the kindest of people to me.
He loves me, I love him.
And I will not leave him and go anywhere.
I'm very happy here. You need not have any fear about this. And, but I'm not coming back.
father magazine, okay, that is the case. The left
column also taken up with this and he loved him so much that he took them inherited by that. We took him next to the Kaaba. And he announced and said, This boy is my son. And from today he will be called a bit Mohammed. So
it's only later on when I was run until I revealed the ayat of surah, to Lhasa where he repeated the
adoption of children. Aladdin prohibit you from taking care of children, but adoption as in giving them your name, and depriving them of the name of their own biological father. Mandela prevented this also in terms of inheritance. And let's not forget the laws that the biological children should inherit and adopted children will not inherit, and so on and so forth. So only when those laws came then they've been Harris that went back to his original name of it. But for a period, they've been hydrosol of the law used to be called they've been Muhammad.
Then as soon as our Salaam was blessed with the words, with Prophet with all of this happened before God
so when he was bested prophet or the first people among the first people to believe for Khadija to Cobra delana was Baraka, oh my man, no delana was a bin hydrosol delana and aluminum, Italian. These were the people who were the first people to accept Islam and to come into Islam.
And they suffered as a result of that, as we know the courage didn't leave anybody alone. So they support
Baraka and Z.
They performed some invaluable service resources by gathering intelligence by going around finding out what are the
plans and zone of the enemy. There's a famous incident where the enemy sealed off all the roads leading to by to lockup, which was the house where as soon as Sam used to teach
the shield of all the and at that time, how the other Cora velana she had some very early
An important message to send to mama social.
So she gave that message to Baraka avellana. And she said go and inform, also reminding This is this the lady alone by herself.
She managed to bypass all the roadblocks and she came to Rosa Solomon, she gave the message. So someone was so happy. She just she risked her life. If she had been caught, they would have killed him.
Now he's on a son himself. Yeah. Oh, my man. He said Yama, my mother, you are from the people have
you said you are blessed. And surely you have a place in general.
And then when she had left,
Roseanne looked at his companions. And there was I live in Italia was there and they've been Hardee's over there. And some other
researchers have looked at them. And he said, if any, any if any one of you wants to marry a person of Jana, you should marry whom I'm
because she was a widow. No husband had died. A boy one was dead.
So she's never sought asylum said, if anyone wants to marry a person, a lady from Jana,
he should marry.
Now, Ali vilano and the others they kept silent. They didn't say anything. But as I told of what Monica was like on the law, but then harissa, he stood up and he said, jasola I want to marry your mind.
And he said, By Allah, she is better than any woman who has wealth and beauty.
My mom or grandma were married and they had a son and son's name was sama
brought up cassava, like his own son. So sama bin Zayed grew up in the household.
Restaurant used to play with him used to carry him used to feed him with his own hand. And the people there is to say he is the beloved son of the Beloved.
Because the name of Musa means beloved, the beloved son of the Beloved, and was also as a very highly capable person.
We'll look at some of the qualities later once the story is finished, but just to continue with the story. because later on to become a military commander Xavier has also become a military commander.
Then as soon as Arsenal migrated to us,
and from that time your trip came to be called Medina. Medina una hora, Medina Toro, so
he left Oh my man behind in Makkah to take care of some matters and some of the trust which he had to give the people.
And once that was over on my iPad,
did hijra to Medina on her own by herself.
So she walked 450 kilometers
up and down hills and valleys to the desert.
And by the time she reached
Medina, her feet were swollen.
You know, she was obviously she was no great warrior. So she was a woman, and her feet were swollen and she was not feeling well. When as soon as I saw her, he said, Yeah, oh, my man, Yama, Israel, my mother. And he sat her down. And he said indeed for you. There is a president I said you are from the people.
And then as soon as Amazon took some water, he washed her face with his own hands. He washed her face, he washed her hands. He washed her feet.
Then he pressed her feet he pressed her shoulders and so on, to give her relief.
See the position of people?
Here is this woman
on the face of it, who is she?
Some amazonians liberal.
Now slave woman, hold on.
But who is watching her feet.
Muhammad Sallallahu aleksa
who calls aroma who calls her mother Muhammad
who gives her Bashar of general not once so many times.
You are from the people of Germany you have
Now in Medina, whomever Ivan was very much part of
all the affairs of Medina
at the time of the battle about when the money
Have your code
Abdullah Winslow Winslow and his gang. When they
abandoned a saucer, Solomon returned to Medina, Oman through dust and sand in their face.
And Jesus take my spinning wheel and sit inside the house. He said, You are cowards. Give me your sword.
I will go.
So she shamed them. And she went to her. And they know how Jesus will water she took care of the wounded, tended to the wounded and so on. And she also fought and she was wounded. Somebody shot an arrow at her and she was wounded, you know?
They took care of that. And then later on, she also went with Rosado heimer as well as to honey. So she was with him in magarpatta Mk and then she went
with him to
her son, Iman.
Delano. He was also a zombie of Russia.
And inhumane he was sure he
he was martyred in the eighth year after his arrest. So she lost her son in two Shahada in honey.
Now, our husbands died with harissa.
Rajaram sent a sorry I sent a battalion to face the threat of the Romans of the Byzantine Empire.
And the battle was fought in a village called Mata.
And there were three commanders that Mr. saram said the this this Battalion,
he said this army would be it was worth 3000 2000 soldiers
said this army will be commanded by typing harissa. And he said if he is killed, then Jaffa Vitaly will take charge. And if he is killed, and Abdullah bin raha will take charge.
And if he's also killed, then you will select your own
your own commander.
Of course, when he was saying if he is skilled, if he is skilled, it means that this is what will happen.
Now, the opposing force there are many
narrations. Somebody said that there were 100,000 robot troops and 100,000 Syrian Arab troops, Syria, Christian era troops. Some of the historians said that this figure is grossly exaggerated because the entire buys and time army totally may have been about 100,000.
So probably this battle of Mata the Roman soldiers were only about 10,000. But even if there were 10,000, the Muslims were only the top. So there were still three times the number. And if there are more than one Allah knows best.
The battle was so tremendously
intense that as Rosaura predicted Zaman, harissa Allahu he was saved. And then as a matter of fact, what happened was when they when they got there, they got us that we have got, we are facing such a huge army. So some of the Sahaba they said, Let us not fight Let us wait and we sent for reinforcement from Athena once that comes, that will fight.
So Abdullah, he said, No, he said that we have come here with the intention and asking Allah subhanaw taala for Shahada.
So now and we are likely to get Shahada, you want to run away you want to go away. He said, what kind of thing is this? So they said, No, we'll go. So they went.
And they fought and as a result, some predicted Xin Hisashi that after that, Jafar monometallic vellano. He took over as the as the commander that he was either after his avatar was around overseas, Abdullah or Delano to come on, and then he was also shaved.
And after that, they elected Khalid bin Ali or Delano as the commander of the army.
Now karlovy Vary the data says that the battle was so intense that he said I broke nine swords in there, but in fighting, he said the battle was the whole day from morning till night, they're fighting. And he said in that fight, I broke nine sorts. He said Finally, it was a Yemeni broadsword which was which stayed with me is a huge piece of pewdiepies oil. He said that was the only thing which stayed in my hand is otherwise nine swords were destroyed.
Mariana was able to make a strategic retreat, so he saved otherwise the whole army probably would have been finished. Whether or not
Army was massive. It was huge. There was no way to win that fight, but they managed to hold their own and then halogen will leave the alarm. He
strategic retreat and they managed to get back now
she lost her son in the Battle of orange, she lost her husband in the Battle of Martha.
Baraka on my motherland, who
was about 70 years old.
So she used to live in a Roadhouse and restaurant used to go and visit her. So one day he went there with
with Olga Delano, and he said, yummy. Are you well, she said, I am. Well, Yasser Allah, as long as Islam is well.
This was a response is that I am well as long as Islam.
And then afterwards, a solar cell cell and passed away.
One day after he passed away, I will walk out on our girl and Omar, they decided to go and visit my mother avellana.
So when they when they found her crying, she was weeping. So Sandhya Oh, my man. He said, Are you crying because Bahasa passed away?
He said, No. She said, I am sad that he passed away, but I knew that Allah subhanaw taala will take his life someday.
He said, I am crying because the way he has talked.
She said, I'm crying because though he
eventually remember delana she died in the time of
the caliber of man.
The reason I thought I'll tell you the story,
for one is that my brother in law has this unique position of having been with Russell Lazarus, and I'm continuously literally from the moment he was born, till the moment he died is nobody else. Nobody else.
every other person in the life of Rosado Sallam came and went, came and went given
the only person who was with them, he sought asylum from the day he was born, till the day he died, was
she has a very special place in the Sierra in the history of Muslims, because she was with the mother of resources and and before he was born, and then she was she remained in this world
all the way until the
Second thing is the reason I mentioned his stories were so many lessons from this one is the big lesson that it is not this world's wealth and possessions and it's not so called you know, beauty or whatever you want to call it or light age or family or history or something, you know, clan and tribe and name none of these matter. What matters is the person's character.
What matters is this person's faithfulness to Islam. What matters is the person's love for Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and for the love of Hamas, Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And when this is there, when there is faithfulness,
towards Allah subhanaw taala and faithfulness towards the soldiers Allah. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala keeps that name alive and Allah subhanaw taala keeps that mentioned alive for centuries and centuries as long as he wants, because 1400 years later today we are sitting here and we are taking the name of Baraka, my motto, the law, and we are asking Allah Subhana Allah to grant the highest station Jana, and the company offers and Mohammed Salah Hanyu.
Second thing is this story also there are several other people who are mentioned there is
who made the right choices. And imagine they've been hydrous I made the right choice. He had the choice of going back to his parents he chose mamasan
he had the choice of not marrying whom I met but he chose to marry whom I have a lot.
Right. And then of course, Allah subhanaw taala gave him Shahada
and of course, Delano is the only Sahabi who is mentioned by name in the
Notice it was mentioned by name and being a Muslim I mentioned but the Sahaba there is no Savi, who was mentioned by name in the Quran, except they've been
by name is his name and resided in Salah in the product.
This is the
honor that Allah subhanaw taala gives to those who love Him and who he loves.
Then there is also the story the brief mention of Solomon's aid or the alarm was another beautiful view of ourselves and others. So, today, thing I want to mention to you is that we are talking about
youth leadership, we are talking about raising of children and so on. Imagine,
of course, the Nabi sallallahu Sallam was the NaVi he was the Rasul of Allah Subhana, Allah subhanho wa Taala guides and ultramarathoner raises his MBI in his own way, but the one of the means of raising masala was Baraka, rajala. Because the mother of Rajaram died, father died before he was born.
mother died at the age of when he was about six years old. But throughout that period, who was his mother, this lady, Barack Obama, a man
that I used to call Roma.
Throughout this period, she was his mother. She raised him she took care of him, right? day to day basis. Imagine that she is the one who's cooking his food for him. She is the one who is taking care of him. She is the one who's, you know, looking after him
throughout. So sometimes we feel that we are living in tough situations or I'm a single mother,
single mother, single mother.
And as soon as Angela was raised by a single mother,
and did you ever think of the progress or something like that he was raised by a single mother, you know, Father,
he had no father, you know, his grandfather passed away, he passed away.
Right? So the thing is that it's not a question of,
of whether you are a single, single parent or what the question of what you do and how you do it. Here we have you have a
case and think about this Rasul Allah says, Allah, he got where he, at what age 40. Right. So this whole period of childhood and so on and so forth, that he's growing up. He's not as a prophet.
So remember, also, at that time, she's not a Muslim, because Islam Islam only came when he was 40. And then she is one of the first people to accept Islam. But when he was a child, when he was growing up, when he was seven years old, eight years old, nine years or 10 years old, 15 years old, 20 years old.
Mama, was there other law.
But even though there was no formal Islam as such, what are the kinds of values and what are the kinds of environment what is the kind of environment that she would have created
for himself or herself, when the light is light Allah by the, by the law smarter,
to mold his character to mold him in a way where Allah subhanaw taala gave him what he gave, as I said, also, one must keep in mind because this is an AVI and of course Allah subhanaw taala brings about things to happen in a particular way. So we can't say that because my man molded his character, he got no vote, we cannot say that is not even true unless Rotella selects the NBA
roster and does their own therapy. But having said that, one can and should reflect on what is our learning from them. Obviously, your children are not going to be up here in a boat stopped with a certain setup. But as a parent, what can I do to create an environment where my child grows up in a wholesome environment? Remember, values come from childhood.
Many times parents asked me, they said, you know, we have a problem with our teenagers. And the teenagers are so bad and they have no respect. And they do this and they do that. And they have they're always, you know, stuck in their
gadgets and, and so on and screens. And now my point is
who bought them the first phone?
Who bought them the first
Which I do know who goes out and buys his own phone or?
Yeah, but seriously, I remember once I was at a house of a friend of mine, and his friend said to me
tonight, big house
To be around the house and so on, so, and then they my friend said to me, you know, you're sitting in the living room, big, big television that he said, Please speak to my children and tell them to, not to watch TV, they're stuck to the TV. So is very bad. And please tell them that this is bad. And tell them they should not watch TV. So I said to him absolutely right. I completely 100% agree with you. They should not watch TV. It is very bad for them. But tell me which one bought the TV I will tell him first. Because you know, he's the one who right. So whichever of your children bought the TV that is the one I should speak to because he is the source of the vitra right that is that little
five year old had not gone to buy the TV and there would be no TV in the house.
So the father and I was looking up at the Bible and you buy a TV you bring it up to you install it in the house like buy like a like a you know, statue or idol is installed in a temple and then you call the room TV room you use them
to TV means what tangela with or what does it be?
TV room with a row, you women, you bring a TV room, then you pay for the cable connection so every conceivable hypothesis TV, then you've done the gym, they should not watch TV and what is this?
It makes no sense. No. Does it make sense?
I tell people stop blaming children it's not the shell it's the parents the problem or the is the parent not the children. The children are children they grow up as you raise them
one other friend of mine No, he says my little child who loves coke.
We are trying to see you know, she must not drink so much. I said
that little thing is this maybe three or four years or so she went and bought coke when she went to Costco or something and she she bought the first one is first public.
Seriously, we have to if you want to raise good children start from day one they your children they came out of you. So start from don't
start from day one. Don't don't don't don't abandon them
until they are 16 years old. Now you are worried what will happen? What will happen whatever you did for 16 years, now you are going to get the harvest.
So very important to ensure that you raise the right second thing is now Okay. All right. So I didn't tell them right whatever I did I right or wrong? Now what do I do?
So and I I now have children who are 17 1816 whatever 15. Now, what shall
not do is treat them like adults, there are others.
Believe it or not, there are
not children anymore.
So treat them like adults, sit down with them.
Tell them one up say look something I did wrong, while I was using now this is the situation what what do you want to do?
Because these attitudes of yours, this lack of attention, lack of focus, you know, lack of respect, whatever it is. You show them how that particular attitude, give them data, say look, I'm not just accusing you, I'm not blaming you. But when you behave in this way, what does it show?
Let them let them understand that let them talk. Talk to them like adults? So I'm not I'm not saying you have no respect, I don't know. I will ask you you are behaving in this way? Does it show respect? Or does it show or?
If you have no attention, you don't want to read? You don't you? Are you are stuck in your phone? Tell me? How is this going to
pan out in the rest of your life? Do you think this will help?
You are 15 1617 and all you can do is ask for money.
How does this work?
How is it going to go further on? How is it going to help you talk to the nature the people
talk to them help them understand how these attitudes are negative. And then give them something to
against that is positive. This is what you should really do.
Right? We ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to raise children who are who will be a source of pride and source of violence awesome Baraka and south of Algeria passage,
also known as Vickery mollari.
We don't have to go on it.
