00:01:07--> 00:01:41

All praise and glory be to Allah We thank him and we seek His help and his guidance and his pleasure and his forgiveness. And we turn to him for protection from the evil whispers within us and from the consequences of our evil deeds. for whomever Allah guides, no one can ever lead us astray and whomever Allah leaves a stray none can ever guide and we testify that no one is worthy of our worship and devotion. But Allah alone without any partners, the true supreme King, at the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in truth, His Prophet, and his servant and His Messenger whom Allah there was a sense as a mercy to all the worlds.

00:01:43--> 00:02:03

Oh, you have committed to faith, have the taqwa of Allah, present in your lives at all times. Be conscious and do default to a large religion. And be consistent in that as best as you can and do not die except in that state of willing loving surrender to Allah state of Islam.

00:02:05--> 00:02:09

To begin after welcoming my brothers and sisters in the house of Allah though gel for another blessing Juma.

00:02:11--> 00:02:16

We know that the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam when he came to the world with his call,

00:02:19--> 00:02:27

almost everyone rejected him, especially as the onset including his own relatives, which was the most devastating for him.

00:02:28--> 00:02:33

But there were a few exceptions to this, like the members of his household AlLahi Salatu was Salam.

00:02:36--> 00:02:40

And among the earliest of his relatives was actually one of his uncle's

00:02:42--> 00:02:47

a distant uncle, which was sad that mnemonic sided Nebula foster I'll be alone died on

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

sad Nelly was himself used to see what are called Roy toony, where Anna Sally Sue Salah suttenfield Islam, I had seen myself at one point when I was the third of three people in all of Islam.

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

Because at that time, no one knew who else was Muslim, by the way. So all he knew was that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Muslim, and that I will work and became Muslim. And he was of the five of the 10 from his agenda that I will work abroad. So he thought he was the third. It was too risky for you to go around asking and telling people you're a Muslim. But in reality, he certainly one of the first 10 according to many historians, altogether that embraced Islam, and this used to bring great joy to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:03:38--> 00:04:02

And so when he would enter a gathering, he would honor him a great deal for his entire life. And he would even jokingly or bragging Li joke, or jokingly brag to his companions and say, have a Harley failure Yanni hadoken kala, whoa, this is my uncle. Let each of you show me who their uncle is. He took great pride in this being the uncle that accepted this being the uncle that responded.

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

And I leave Napa Valley Ravi Allahu taala. And

00:04:07--> 00:04:38

he used to say mass ammirato Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Lima yesterday I hadn't the other way he Illa sagen I never heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Express such endearment yesterday a hidden fee that is ransom. The Arabs had this expression when you really love someone you say feedback can be feedback on me. May my mother be ransom for you? May my father be ransom for you? Meaning Listen, may I be given a chance to show you how much you mean to me.

00:04:41--> 00:05:00

And so he says, I never heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say both for anyone may my mother and my father be ransom for you? decided Nebula cause he said I heard him on the day of when the province offered them was ambushed. When he woke he found sad there. Are they allowed to Allah and who some narrations may

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

He used to even grab the arrows for him and hand them to him and tell him shoot shoot me sad feedback Abby will only shoot outside with your bow. me my mother and my father be ransom for you.

00:05:12--> 00:05:37

And sad himself he used to say to the people will Allah He in De La La La La Jolla, middle Arabi Rama beside him in Pisa Vila, I take great pride in that badge. In that accolade, of being the very first man in all of Arabia to shoot an arrow in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala, in defense of the profits of Allahu alayhi wa sallam and the friends of Islam.

00:05:38--> 00:05:58

And sad was known to be fearless, a fearless Knight. He was a superb horseman. But they say his fearlessness came in Islam from knowing that he mastered two weapons. The first of them were his arrows and spears. And the second of them was his.

00:05:59--> 00:06:22

He knew about himself that he mastered the art of their art. And people knew this about him. And he heard this. And he believed this from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam himself, when he used to say Allahumma edgy that I want to who said did Amita Oh Allah allow his arrows to always hit the mark, and always respond to his prayers always respond to his draw.

00:06:24--> 00:06:36

And that is why later scholars would like him would like in the power of do with the power of of arrows in battle, because they are your greatest asset, a chef at Yahoo law.

00:06:37--> 00:06:57

He used to say, what's the hammer, Laila, click, the arrows of the night don't miss like their arrows, you shoot by day to defend yourself. But there's arrows you send up at night, which are your requests to the Lord of the world, the King of kings, who kinda who was Allah, this started with sad, sad knew that he mastered both simultaneously on the 11th, Allahu Akbar.

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

People of the world needs to come just as asking him for which is permissible, you approach someone that's alive, that you accept is righteous.

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

And you ask them for

00:07:12--> 00:07:28

though you should never forget to make the art for yourself. As one of the righteous he was asked, Do you know someone who is accepted? Are there still people around like sad who costs and these grades was accepted? So he said to him, No, I don't. But I know someone who accepts

00:07:29--> 00:07:42

Allah Subhana Allah Allah Himself. But in any case, sadly, who was one of those people whose do I was accepted and this was common knowledge. Everyone knew this about him, and would approach him for it. And people would fear him because of it. Also.

00:07:43--> 00:08:21

When I'm going to talk about the Allahu unplaced as the nebula, during his reign, the reign of Omar as the governor of El Kufa, that city in Iraq where so much turmoil, so much uprising, so much rebellion was happening, he placed him there, and eventually, just like anyone else in Kufa, complaints arise about him. People were never satisfied and Kufa always turbulent. And so they sent a complaint to another local pub. That sad was being unfair. He wasn't distributing money equally. He was employing favoritism. He was taking advantage of his position. While I used to use Olli and he doesn't even know how to pray.

00:08:24--> 00:08:28

Bob had to set a precedent. And so he sends Mohammed eponymous lemma to go investigate.

00:08:29--> 00:08:53

And everyone spoke well of sad wherever Mohammed no Muslim asked, except this one man he found in the market, who was where it all started. And so he brought news back to Mr. Malhotra and Mr. makapag that brings that over, we will speak to him ourselves. And when he brought him over to Medina, he asked them some questions and sad justified every decision he made. And then the only last accusation that stood

00:08:55--> 00:08:57

was they say you don't know how to pray correctly.

00:08:58--> 00:09:07

And for one of the very first people to ever become Muslim, this was extremely difficult, on sad to defend himself about something like this.

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

I might have made him demonstrate in front of the people that he knows how to pray.

00:09:14--> 00:09:30

And so he did. And he said, this is exactly how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prayed, the legal one novica about is how, oh, Abu is half that and it was because I knew this was how you were going to pray. But I had to show the people that I am a man of justice.

00:09:31--> 00:10:00

And he offered to remove him from his position as an Cova. So that people don't continue pestering him don't continue harassing him. Sad was so humiliated, returning to the topic of sad was so humiliated, that he could not resist making against this man. And he raised his hands to the skies and he said a lahoma in Canna pharma that he and what Summa Oh Allah he got up saying this stuff to make a show to make a name for himself, hungry for a position. He didn't

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

honestly think I was wrong? even look at the fear of Allah in His qualifier how he qualified if he really knew that I was better than this and he smeared me deliberately. Oh Allah He did this to show off and make a name for himself to be heard. He says for Alfredo Morocco lengthen his life while I'm in Barcelona and blind his eyes

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

will fuck

00:10:26--> 00:11:12

Oh castlerea Allah who make his responsibilities, his financial responsibilities many is dependent many and subject him to trials and tribulations in that old age of his. This is a final Buhari by the way this incident. It is the narrator say this man lived to see the day when his eyebrows began to obstruct his vision. He got so old that his eyebrows made him almost legally blind if you will, obstructed his vision. And yet he would still walk in the streets of an Kufa hating on young girls bothering young girls. And when people tell him have some self respect, look at your old age and you're still behaving like this way. He would say to them, I can't help myself.

00:11:14--> 00:11:26

Raw Shea Hoon must tune he said an elderly man that is subject to fitna. Our father said to me that I was too sad. I am the victim or I am suffering from the upset. I couldn't escape it.

00:11:29--> 00:11:37

This was his greatest asset, his greatest weapon and his hours as well. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said I just do nursing Olivia does only

00:11:38--> 00:11:41

the most incompetent person is the one incapable of making

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

the greatest failures, the one that fails to make dry

00:11:46--> 00:12:09

and he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lays a shade on a Chroma como la humanidad. There is nothing more honored by Allah or honorable in the sight of Allah than making dry. Some people wonder like why why should I make do I like Allah already knows what I want. Allah knows my situation, Allah knows what I need. It is the conversation between you and Allah that is so dear to him that is so honorable to him.

00:12:11--> 00:12:25

When you whisper into your palms, or whisper into the carpet, when you whisper and have certainty that Allah hears you, and certainty that I love can help you. And that Allah is not the leftover option, he is not your last resort.

00:12:27--> 00:12:35

And so there was a thinness in the air between sides and his Lord because of how frequently he would speak to him. A lot would honor him so much.

00:12:36--> 00:12:41

But at the same time, we want to say don't think that I'm not sad and so I can't make that

00:12:43--> 00:13:22

alarm may respond to you, no matter who you are, did he not respond to the door I have a belief Do I have shade on and so you continue making do I across the board while you better yourself, you reform yourself so that your do I can be more accepted. That's what sad would do sadder of your level and would be very careful always about his income because he knew this was directly related to his the province offer them will tell us that. He said a person can be traveling which helps you to get accepted. A person could be desperate which helps you to get accepted. A person can raise their hands to the sky, which is a third factor makes you to accept it. He said saying Yeah, I'll be out

00:13:22--> 00:13:37

of bed repetition helps make your dog get accepted. He said what he eats how Tom drinks, how Tom dresses and how Tom unlawful income. How can someone like that be responded to meaning you lower your own chances so many times when you're not concerned about this

00:13:38--> 00:13:48

side was always very concerned and very cautious about where his money came from where his food came from. So that he would be as effective as it always was.

00:13:49--> 00:14:22

And then moving on in his life. saga, the other one actually became very wealthy as his life progress. But that's not necessarily a sign that Allah loves you. What was a sign that I loved him was that sad became more charitable, the more wealth he gained, and that is the rarity. Usually the person that gains more spends less of a percentage of what they have sad was not like that. Sad would try to spend whatever he could and try to leave almost nothing behind for himself

00:14:23--> 00:14:31

to the point that I've had to do there and the farewell pilgrimage when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made his final hedge.

00:14:33--> 00:14:56

At two days before he died Allah His Salatu was Salam while they were in Mecca sad Mabu Of course became very sick. And he said to me out of school of law, in Nila dumelo messenger of Allah I am very wealthy. I become very wealthy. Well, are you ready Sunni Illa Ivana and no one is going to inherit by money but my money but one daughter, I only have one girl I'm about to die.

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

He says Fs or fuck the hubby through

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

Family, can I donate two thirds of my money? Everything? Two thirds.

00:15:06--> 00:15:08

A third will be more than enough for her.

00:15:09--> 00:15:12

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him no you can.

00:15:13--> 00:15:18

He said to him, I thought of the holiness, can I donate half of my money? everything I own?

00:15:22--> 00:15:33

He told him no, you can. He said, I thought I thought dako be so loose, they can I don't need a third. He said you a third is fine, and a third is too much. A third is much.

00:15:34--> 00:16:18

And that is why a third is the max that you can leave in your state entrustment you can request a third after your death, nothing more than that. But that is too much. According to many scholars, that's why I will welcome so do the lawan said, when he said a third is too much I will only leave a fifth if not best, and I will only leave behind the fourth of the estate. But the point being is that in his riches, he's able to walk away, fearing that he will soon come to meet his death with two thirds of his wealth. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the one that stopped him. And then he explained to him why he said in that get in touch Integra Antara was set up near Cairo

00:16:18--> 00:16:28

Minh and sadara whom Allah tanika foolin us, it's better that you leave your independence with some money better than leaving them to wind up in a situation where they extend their hands to the people don't do that.

00:16:30--> 00:16:33

And then he told him, we're in Atlanta mode and by the way, you're not gonna die.

00:16:34--> 00:16:38

You will not die. He said, had

00:16:39--> 00:16:48

young farm level backup wireman? acquirement what you thought Rebecca Harun until Allah allows you to benefit many people,

00:16:49--> 00:16:51

and harms through you many others.

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

He told him he would live

00:16:55--> 00:17:00

and he did live to benefit the world in a great way and leave behind an amazing legacy

00:17:02--> 00:17:03

and harm those

00:17:04--> 00:17:12

that did not grant him the anger of Allah and occur on him the anger of Allah, those that were aggressors those that were oppressors.

00:17:13--> 00:17:43

You see, when the lucapa rhodiola, Juan took the reins of this oma one of the earliest encounters that happened with one of the tyrannical regimes of the time, the greatest of them which was Persia, the sassanid Empire, the Muslims were hit with a devastating blow in what is known as mocha to just the Battle of the bridge or the street across the water. Over 4000 Muslims died there in the water at MOCA to just so Islam and its borders were on the brink of

00:17:46--> 00:18:07

himself headed out of Medina rushing and Abdul Rahman now grabbed him and said you cannot go like Islam is on the line. The omega, you have to stay back in Medina, you can't go by yourself. It's too risky for someone like you to die. Who are we going to send? Who are we going to send? They agree there is no one better than sad the Navy wakatobi lavonne. So he sent him

00:18:08--> 00:18:31

and the Battle of qadisiya took place and the Battle of the one in the battle and my dad in a lot of villages broke permanently the Persian Empire for the fire worshipping Persian Empire at that point in that place in that time. Sadly, no, of course have the most beautiful things to mention his biography is that when he was right about to begin the Battle of of qadisiya,

00:18:32--> 00:18:44

he sent messengers to converse on voice touristen, the head of the Persians and he said to them, why is your general sending you What do you want? He said, Allah has sent us.

00:18:45--> 00:19:12

He said Allah has sent us forward to extract this leaves from being enslaved to fellow slaves and being enslaved the fellow human beings. Those abusers, those people were those that sad was destined to harm those who continued to persecute and punish and limit people. He said, Allah sent us to remove the slaves from being enslaved to fellow slaves, to being enslaved to the Lord of the slaves,

00:19:13--> 00:19:25

and to remove them from the oppression of other systems to the justice of Islam, and to remove them from the limitations the suffocating nature of this world, to the vastness of this world and the next.

00:19:27--> 00:19:39

And he said to him, How can you be so brave like we are the superpower, what do you think you really think you can take us down? He said to him, we have the promise of Allah with us. Either we take you down or we meet Allah, having earned his pleasure.

00:19:41--> 00:19:50

And he said, then we will see and he sent him back and refuse to negotiate. So they returned to sad that it will cost about the love of Thailand who and they told him,

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

he wants to fight. It's going to be battle, it's going to be the war. Sad began to weep because he wished that

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

The battle would be a little earlier a little later that day. Because soldiers had taken over his body he had gotten extremely sick and he would not be able to go out in the battle. He could not even sit on a horse nevertheless fight.

00:20:13--> 00:20:25

And so he had them build for him or after in the trees, so he can scout and give directions for the battle while laying on his stomach, totally vulnerable for anyone to walk in on him and to kill him.

00:20:27--> 00:20:39

But he did this for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, and Allah granted the Muslims victory then, and it was the beginning of a successive chain of liberating campaigns that sad that maybe well cos was at the head of Thailand who

00:20:41--> 00:20:42

was the former Altima Lee welcome

00:20:55--> 00:21:04

Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Milena Viva La ilaha illallah wa Hola, sharika wash Donna Mohammedan Avi do who want to be hora pseudo.

00:21:07--> 00:21:15

But after a lot, though a gel granted them all of this success and their award for all of this liberation.

00:21:16--> 00:21:36

Allah azza wa jal had destined for this oma in its first generation to go through what is known as the and fictional Kabbalah the major pfitzner, the major conflict that happened between the Sahaba or the lavon home, one of the party that was supporting leave nebuta live and the parties that was supporting while we have never

00:21:37--> 00:21:48

fought with one another, sad that never will cause was of those that refuse to take sides. He disappeared, like a few of those Ohio the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or a group of them did.

00:21:50--> 00:21:59

And he was even asked, Why did you do this? Why did you not take a stand for justice? He said, my brothers are these two parties are all my brothers.

00:22:01--> 00:22:20

We were all working together, we were all on the path of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then it went dark. It got foggy and went dark. And so some people said the way is this way, other than the way is that way. And a group of us said, we will sit here till the lights get turned back on. We will go in either direction.

00:22:23--> 00:22:29

He said to him, some of them said to him what Allah said when there is a transgressing party, you have to stand against the transgressor

00:22:32--> 00:22:47

he said to them, and how could I fight against the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam all of them are well intending. They don't intend to transgress. It is blurry, it is unclear. And so he isolated himself, I'll be alone Thailand at the end of his life.

00:22:49--> 00:22:55

And 54 years after the higit of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam many years later, with him living in isolation.

00:22:57--> 00:23:00

His time to go had come and he had all the love of Thailand who

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

felt sick fell ill to die.

00:23:05--> 00:23:06

And the narrator has mentioned that

00:23:07--> 00:23:09

he was extremely joyous at the time of death.

00:23:11--> 00:23:14

for so many reasons. One of them is that I love benefited with him people,

00:23:16--> 00:23:29

the right people, and Allah azza wa jal had him only use his strength, his bravery, his force against the right people, and he withheld himself from being involved with any sort of harm to the oma.

00:23:31--> 00:24:10

And as he laid his head in the lap of his son, his son began to weep. And he said to him, my Yuki, Cabernet my son, why are you weeping? in Allah halaya agrimony evidence Allah would never punish me. How beautiful how beautiful his relationship with Allah must have been to be able to say that in such an unsure moment. He said in Allah Allah you as the only evidence Allah would never punish me while allowing the Illuminati agenda I swear I'm from the people of paradise. I have certainty The problem is often them said I'm agenda means I'm agenda. There's no room to doubt that. I am certainly agenda. And then he just cheered for them to a chest in his house.

00:24:11--> 00:24:22

Small storage bucks. And he said go to that chest and pull out the garment. So they went and they pulled out an old falling apart garment that he used to wear.

00:24:23--> 00:24:29

And he said Bring it over, and make sure you only shroud me when I die in that garment?

00:24:34--> 00:25:00

He says Lucky lucky will machinery kena be her yo Madryn Well, according to her to Holly has a young. This was the shirt that I wore when I shot my first arrow. This is the shirt that I wore when we face the idolaters on the day of bed, our first battle with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I have saved it I have treasured it for this day. It wasn't for him some sort of shirt or some cloth or even some

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

sentimental value. This was once again his his badge of honor. This was the flag that proudly waives over a lifetime of unwavering faith, a lifetime of sincerity, a lifetime of courage. He saved it for that day for the love of Thailand.

00:25:17--> 00:25:21

And our laws though a gentleman sent His angels to take his soul.

00:25:23--> 00:25:54

And the believers carried his body back to Medina, he died in isolation. He carried his blessing body back to Edina, so that it may leave us the body of who the very last of them will have God to die. All of the Muslims that left Mecca as Muslims and went to Medina, of the earliest of them to become Muslim was that he was the very last of them to die. Just as the prophet SAW Selim said you will live a long life. Allah has a legacy destined for you. You have work to do in this world.

00:25:55--> 00:26:43

He was the last of them, oh, hygiene to die, and he caught up with his brothers and his sisters. In that graveyard, the graveyard of Albuquerque and Medina. All those exhausted blessed bodies who did their service and proceeded him to a log village. Now he was catching up with them. May Allah be pleased with sad them that'd be waka. May Allah be pleased with the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam may Allah be pleased with the one who liberated the world in those lands, the hero of qadisiya and the Medina and no one and the one who extinguish that fire that people were forced to worship. In the majority the fireworks shooting Persia lahoma mean, learn to love these people

00:26:43--> 00:26:50

and educate your children about them. The people who carried Islam to us and spent their lives doing that.

00:26:51--> 00:27:06

May Allah help us share our depth to them with our families. So that perhaps, so that perhaps, we may see them one day and in Sydney Malik about the Allahu taala and who he says and with this I close, this is unfortunate Bukhari and Muslim.

00:27:08--> 00:27:11

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was once asked

00:27:13--> 00:27:18

about the people that cannot do the same amount of good deeds as others.

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

But they love them.

00:27:23--> 00:27:28
