That's a woman that had a very special relationship with the Prophet sallallaahu salah.

00:02:38--> 00:02:39

Her name was

00:02:41--> 00:02:42

her name was Baraka.

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

Do you know who I'm talking about?

00:02:47--> 00:02:50

Baraka mashallah, Alec interleaver aka

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

by who was Baraka?

00:02:55--> 00:02:59

She has a nickname or a cornea by which he is most known.

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

Anyone else? Oh, my man.

00:03:04--> 00:03:13

Her cornea became so famous. So my so that nowadays, nowadays for for some time, some people would name their daughters or my mother.

00:03:15--> 00:03:23

Or my mother literally means the mother of Amon. The reason she was named the mother of eminence because she had a son named Iman.

00:03:24--> 00:03:26

And she was she was

00:03:27--> 00:03:31

her cornea. Her nickname became OMA Amon, the mother of M.

00:03:32--> 00:03:41

And this Amon himself was a Shaheed he was actually a companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Her name was bark had been to Salah they've been Hessen

00:03:43--> 00:03:44

doc had been salah.

00:03:46--> 00:03:52

She was she was married to a man by the name of obeyed, who was the father of a minimum of eight

00:03:57--> 00:03:59

her husband was a companion of the prophets of Allah.

00:04:01--> 00:04:02

And after his death

00:04:06--> 00:04:19

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam married her to someone else. So what is the story of a man who's alive? And what a man was a female a slave, a young girl, a young female slave,

00:04:21--> 00:04:25

owned by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his father Abdullah.

00:04:27--> 00:04:32

When Abdullah died, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was still

00:04:34--> 00:04:44

in that fetal estate, the province of Salem his mother was pregnant with him. He didn't even come to this world. She was about two to three months pregnant with the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam,

00:04:45--> 00:04:51

Omar Amon, was kept by the mother of the prophesy Salam 40. Amina Amina,

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

been to the mother of the promises. She kept her. Her husband died. Whatever the husband possessed. Now the wife has

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

A study of it, but it's gonna become what the property of,

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

of this child that is to come.

00:05:08--> 00:05:10

And rest assured, I'm

00:05:11--> 00:05:17

the mother of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, Allah gave birth to a baby boy to a beautiful special baby boy.

00:05:18--> 00:05:28

A lot of people, you know, come home right this event around this time of the year, most likely around the eighth or the ninth of the of robiola.

00:05:31--> 00:05:38

So Baraka, this little girl, this little Abyssinian girl from Habesha

00:05:39--> 00:05:41

was the one that carry the news.

00:05:43--> 00:05:55

It was one of the people said to carry the news to Abdulmutallab the grandfather, who had just lost his favorite son Abdullah, seven month prior to this date.

00:05:56--> 00:05:59

So seven months earlier, he lost his son,

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


00:06:02--> 00:06:14

his favorite son, and now he is given glad tidings of a baby boy born to that son after his passing, and he was the one that named him Mohammed

00:06:15--> 00:06:22

Baraka fell in love with the province of Allah Azza. And from the moment he saw him, and she became his nanny,

00:06:23--> 00:06:27

whom he actually technically owns as a slave.

00:06:29--> 00:06:32

And the province of Allahu alayhi wa sallam when he grew old

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


00:06:35--> 00:06:37

the province and Salem freed her.

00:06:38--> 00:06:42

Because Baraka was with with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:06:43--> 00:06:44


00:06:46--> 00:06:58

she would probably Allahu anha, she would be with the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam, the only time she was separated from him is when I mean gave the Prophet salallahu Alaihe salam to Halima

00:06:59--> 00:07:04

to nurse the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the homes of many set.

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

But when the Prophet centum was returned to his mother, later, perhaps at the age of two or the age of four,

00:07:14--> 00:07:43

there are debates. Baraka was with the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam at the age of six and the problem was six. His mother, Amina, took him to what was known back then as ye thrip. And he actually was the ancient name of Medina and the days in those days. Baraka was with him. So Allah Allah, he was Santa, and on their way back in an area known as Ebola, when the prophecy was only six, his mother fell ill

00:07:45--> 00:07:51

and her symptoms worsen and try to come to her to the disease or whatever it was that she

00:07:53--> 00:07:59

she caught and the prophesies tell him watch his mother died, and she was buried there, and who was with him?

00:08:01--> 00:08:23

Online name Baraka, so far. Now her name is not on Wayman. Her name is Monique Baraka was with him. She stayed with him. And about this the province of Allahu alayhi wa sallam says he had me by the army. She became my mother after my mother. She was older than the promise of light so that she was a young girl but she was older than the prompts on the line is.

00:08:27--> 00:08:36

She returned with the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, obviously his grandfather Abdulmutallab took custody of him and who's with him.

00:08:37--> 00:08:38

But she's

00:08:41--> 00:09:24

two years later, Abdul Muttalib dies. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is again yet within two years, suffers another loss as a child. And he sees his grandfather, his favorite grandfather, who became like a father figure for him, who was who used who was a father figure. He was his father, actually. And he used to say, even he, this is my son. He used to tell Baraka, do not lose sight of my son. Take care of my son. Make sure that he doesn't get lost, make sure he doesn't get hurt. Like he's always will Abdulmutallab love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so much so that no one could stop the process and then from doing anything that he wanted,

00:09:24--> 00:09:31

Abdulmutallab had this, this mat, this padded mat that he would sit on a

00:09:33--> 00:09:35

very fancy mat that he would sit on.

00:09:36--> 00:09:50

No one dares to sit on it. Not his son's Alhadeff or toilet or Hamza or al Abbas or any of them, any of the promises Williams uncles, none of them would dare to sit on it, or I will have no one.

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

But young Muhammad will come very often and go and sit there where his grandfather used to sit like this, and his uncles will come to him

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

When I say get up that's, that's your grandfather's math. That is the Natales math get up

00:10:08--> 00:10:12

and the promises and would refuse and then when Abdulmutallab

00:10:13--> 00:10:23

would come and see them telling him to get off, because he came, he will say, don't talk to my son. Don't say anything to him, leave him alone. Muhammad can do whatever he wants.

00:10:25--> 00:10:30

And he would send him to do errands for him one time he sent him to pursue camels

00:10:31--> 00:10:58

of his, the province it took a while to be able to retrieve those camels. And Abdulmutallab regretted doing that. And he became so worried that he went in front of the Kaaba and he started singing poetry begging Allah azza wa jal to return his son to him to return the Prophet den. And he vowed not to ever send him again because he couldn't, he couldn't handle not having him around.

00:11:01--> 00:11:04

Who was with him all the time, Barack.

00:11:06--> 00:11:10

So, and she was the one that consoled him when Abdul Muttalib died.

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

Here, the browser Solomon's custody now belongs to his eldest uncle at the mall at that time, the eldest surviving aunt uncle Abu Talib, who is going with the prophesy syndrome, Baraka she is with him.

00:11:30--> 00:11:46

And then she stayed with him, until the province of Allah and even send them married Khadija. And when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam married Khadija, that's when the Prophet Selim freed on Amon or Baraka, he freed her. He gave her her freedom letter.

00:11:47--> 00:11:50

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam.

00:11:52--> 00:12:18

Obviously, when she was freed, she stayed with the Prophet she's still family afraid of slavers becomes like a family. She stayed with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she eventually married or wait about Amon. And when the promises hadn't received the message, he was one of the first people to accept Islam, along with the members of his household because she's a member of his household. She gave birth to Amon,

00:12:19--> 00:12:22

a boy that she they named Ivan and

00:12:25--> 00:12:29

Baraka, the province of Salem gave her permission to go with her husband.

00:12:30--> 00:12:34

Her husband was originally from the people of Medina, by the way, but he was in Mecca.

00:12:35--> 00:12:37

He gave her permission with her husband to go to where?

00:12:38--> 00:12:45

To Abyssinia and she was a great asset for the Muslims, because she spoke the language she was originally from there.

00:12:46--> 00:12:48

And she went with her husband to

00:12:49--> 00:13:02

the Zinnia and then they returned. And then eventually she made hijra with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to Medina, her husband passed away. And after her husband's passing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:13:03--> 00:13:04

married her to his

00:13:08--> 00:13:08


00:13:09--> 00:13:43

who was they didn't have for the product, his adopted son. They didn't know how to her used to be the prophesy Salim slave. He was gifted to the province Allah Allah Allah sent him by Khadija. And when he chose to stay with the prophesies, and I'm the Prophet freed him, or when his parents sorry when his father came to claim him with his uncle the process and and freed him. He said, You're free to go with them. And he chose to stay with the process LM as a slave to the plan, son and freedom and on the spot the promises that have adopted him as his son, and his name at that time was a double Hamad. So he married her to his own son,

00:13:44--> 00:13:47

Mo Leto. And she was older than Zaid.

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

She was perhaps maybe twice his age.

00:13:51--> 00:13:55

Right? She was twice his age. He was a teenager. She married him to

00:13:56--> 00:14:07

she was a single mom with one boy. So they even had her married her and they together had the legendary iconic

00:14:08--> 00:14:09

Osama bin Zayed

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

and that is why just for you to others that was said Osama

00:14:15--> 00:14:27

you know, he was he was he resembled more his mother's side. That's why he was dark skinned. He was black. He had curly hair, but obviously he has some features to resemble his father.

00:14:28--> 00:14:36

Right and then when you go into the hypocrites used to always mock him and say to date T's Zed or you know Mark Zaid and say he's not your son

00:14:38--> 00:14:41

and the province is how you used to be really upset about this.

00:14:43--> 00:14:49

So Sam Abizaid is the son of Omar even the Son of Baraka. That's his mother.

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

And she raised with samaroli Allahu anhu, to be the along with his older brother, half brother, amen. To be an

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

Amazing strong companions knowledgeable.

00:15:05--> 00:15:09

They were fierce fighters while the Allahu Anhu.

00:15:10--> 00:15:17

And she stayed with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam close to the Prophet Salah Salem and he used to frequently visit her.

00:15:18--> 00:15:26

And she witness the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, obviously, and the death of her own son as well.

00:15:27--> 00:15:33

Amon was martyred and all the Allahu Anhu Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:15:34--> 00:15:48

gave, we'll see. Yeah, he used to say, you know, he used to tell the members of his household to care for her. And she lived long after the prophesies. She lived in till the time of Omar Earthman

00:15:49--> 00:15:51

Abu Bakr and Umar Radi Allahu Anhu.

00:15:52--> 00:16:05

would go and visit Omar Amen one time during the reign of Abu Bakr al the Allah on either Welcome Center, Omar, let's let let's go visit Omar Amon.

00:16:07--> 00:16:09

Like the Prophet SAW, Selim used to visit her.

00:16:12--> 00:16:19

And they went to visit her. And when they went there, she started to cry.

00:16:21--> 00:16:22

And they started to cry.

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

Sorry, she started to cry. So they were trying to comfort her. They said, Oh my Amen. You know, the messenger because the prophets of Salem was her prophet. He was her teacher, but he was also her

00:16:34--> 00:16:39

son. He was her son, she read, she saw him from the moment he was born.

00:16:43--> 00:17:14

She saw him grow up to be an amazing, you know, the most extraordinary youth. She saw him go through so many losses, painful losses, losing his mother losing his grandfather losing his uncle losing his wife, losing his sons losing some of his daughters, she was with him. She saw him receive when he became a prophet, you know, before he became a prophet, after he received the message of Allah Subhana Allah after he became a messenger of Allah Salah all his life.

00:17:16--> 00:17:18

She knew him for 63 years.

00:17:20--> 00:17:26

She knew him. He was part of who she was some alarmism, she had great impact on him.

00:17:28--> 00:17:57

So now his companions that he called to Islam, whom he brought out of darkness into the light of Islam, who, who became these great figures in our history and great leaders, and one of them now is the Khalifa in charge of the affairs of Muslims. They're coming to visit her offer her the respect and care that she deserved. There'll be a lot and she's sitting there and she's contemplating. She's remembering the past

00:17:59--> 00:18:00

65 years

00:18:02--> 00:18:05

of her own life, when she was a young girl.

00:18:07--> 00:18:35

And how Allah subhanaw taala honored her, Allah Subhana Allah gave her this opportunity to live this extraordinary life. And she starts crying, crying, and avocado no more to try to calm her down. They said, Yeah, amen. Don't you know, what Allah has for His Prophet is better than we could ever offer him in this life? Don't you know he's in a better place? And like that, let me know might be.

00:18:36--> 00:18:42

And when they said that, she looked at them and she said, she stopped and she looked at them and she said, I'm not crying about that.

00:18:44--> 00:18:51

I know what Allah has for His Prophet is greater than this dunya because Allah said to him, Well,

00:18:52--> 00:18:56

when Allah I know he's in a better place in a better company.

00:18:58--> 00:19:02

I am crying when I can be appealing the thought and why.

00:19:04--> 00:19:09

What is making me cry, is the fact that there is no longer ye coming fresh from heaven.

00:19:12--> 00:19:14

Jabri no longer comes to visit us.

00:19:16--> 00:19:21

No more fresh. No Quranic revelation coming down.

00:19:22--> 00:19:26

Allah is not speaking to us anymore, directly through his

00:19:27--> 00:19:35

we're not getting these, these fresh revelations, words of Allah subhanaw taala Calam Allah is not is no longer coming. However.

00:19:37--> 00:19:48

What we have is what we have, and I missed those days. Because whenever fresh revelation came, whatever Quran came whenever you really visited, that used to bring about,

00:19:49--> 00:19:57

you know, this positive spiritual energy, energize the entire community and that entire vicinity would be blessed with no revelation

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


00:20:00--> 00:20:17

People deep sense of email and strong connection to Allah Subhana. Allah would feel it. If she said I missed those days. And upon saying that it hit Abu Bakr and Omar so hard that the two started to weep and cry. And now she's the one trying to calm them down while they allow and hope as you may.

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

So tonight I wanted to speak about a model the law and

00:20:24--> 00:20:28

baraka of instead of a heavy shear, the pacinian

00:20:29--> 00:20:47

nanny of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah's peace and blessings be upon him. May Allah's peace and pleasure be upon her, while the Allahu Allah for caring for the prophesied Selim as a child as a baby when he was in his infancy and when he was

00:20:48--> 00:21:18

a child, as a toddler, and then as a youth, and being amongst the people that provided the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with so much care and love, bear in mind, that she played a very critical role in the life of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, her role was not marginal. Because the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam needed love and he needed care. And she was one of the people Allah chose for her to be there. For the prophets Allah I sent him when he was most vulnerable.

00:21:20--> 00:21:24

For the Allah and how Allah Zack will my house and I might even want to live I get
