Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah. What a cat thriller and hamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

Tonight I wanted to discuss, I initially wanted to discuss the province. I said that was compassion. A few days ago, I talked, I gave a federal court era, I think it was last Saturday, if I remember correctly, and we brought up a hadith

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

by one of the young companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

And the initial plan for this particular discussion was to have a panel of youth with us, but they were not ready so inshallah to Allah, that's something to come soon. Maybe next month, Inshallah, we're going to have a panel discussion involving some of our youth in sha Allah as we get to, as

00:01:04--> 00:01:44

we really need to hear from them, and engage them at every level. So So tonight, I was just going to talk about different episodes are different examples of how the province has had them showed compassion and his, you know, care for the youth. But if you may allow me I want to not digress but expand the discussion and instead of just making it just on the compassion of the promises of them towards the youth, I want to talk about the role of the of the youth in the life of the prophets, Allah, Allah, they said them, and how the prophets have provided care and guidance for the youth, and how they were at once the greatest assets of the prophetic community. See, one thing a lot of us

00:01:44--> 00:01:55

don't realize is that the youth were not only young people were not only an integral part of the mission of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But

00:01:56--> 00:02:00

if you look, if you if you do some analysis

00:02:01--> 00:02:05

of the age groups of the early

00:02:06--> 00:02:26

Muslims, who were the people that were attracted to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, right, there are really few people who are at the age or older than the process Allah comes to mind of man, when I'm alone, I will buckle was considered to be amongst the eldest or the companions. And guess how old he was?

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

How old

00:02:30--> 00:02:31

he was 38

00:02:33--> 00:02:35

Abu Bakr was 38 when he accepted Islam,

00:02:37--> 00:02:49

and a worker of the Allahu Anhu invited to Islam people who were younger than him. People who were very, very, they were part of his inner circle, and they looked up to a walker or they Allah Han.

00:02:50--> 00:02:54

Right, they were in their 20s and in their teens

00:02:55--> 00:03:06

say a lot of people don't know that I will obey that was was was considered to be a youth when he accepted Islam. Abdul Rahman and now Paul have not obeyed the law. So, of course,

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

all these names.

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

It was a child.

00:03:12--> 00:03:12

Right.

00:03:15--> 00:03:21

Man, we mentioned I'm gonna hold off Abdullah and Mr. Ruth was a young man, he was a teenager

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

you know, almost the 10 promise all of them with the exception of Mr.

00:03:30--> 00:03:37

Escobedo, and that's what I was thinking about the process and I'm his cousin, as you may or may not want I think was 18 or something. Or 16.

00:03:40--> 00:03:56

Sorry, even as eight, probably Allah Allahu Allah, these were all young people. And some of them came into Islam with their wives or even his aid, and fall team Abbington atop the sister of Amara, the Allahu Anhu. These were, this was a young couple.

00:03:58--> 00:04:23

The first batch that went from Mecca made the migration from Mecca to Abyssinia to have a shot that first hit Europe. It was a group of young couples. John from Nebuta live in his wife s map into a maze. These were young couples. Some of them were newlyweds, right? It was man, a fan and his wife

00:04:24--> 00:04:25

like that. So

00:04:28--> 00:04:34

most I've ever known about the hola Juan, I'll give you just an example just to make you just realize how they were involved.

00:04:36--> 00:04:52

We all heard of the name of Donald Arkham. Right. Darren Arkham was the hiding place overnight the hiding place, but that secret location that the promises seldom used to meet with his companions or the new Congress in sight.

00:04:53--> 00:04:58

And his name was Donald Archimedes, the house or the place of residence of Arkham

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

and

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

This was a lot of commitment.

00:05:02--> 00:05:12

How old do you think our community will outcome was? In whose apartment the Prophet and his companions used to meet? Discuss the Quran and study Islam?

00:05:14--> 00:05:21

This is a very high subclassified. High level, very dangerous mission.

00:05:23--> 00:05:27

Right, this meeting the watchful eyes of the Mexican chiefs.

00:05:29--> 00:05:32

Where do you think how old do you think our Cabinet will come once?

00:05:34--> 00:05:41

When the province has sent them chose his place of residence to be the meeting place for them?

00:05:42--> 00:05:52

That's a place where Omar Abdullah on eventually went to take to declare Islam to inform the Prophet that he accepted Islam. How old do you think he was?

00:05:53--> 00:05:55

Someone if someone was to guess

00:05:56--> 00:06:00

he was 16. One six, and he was a teenager.

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

Now,

00:06:04--> 00:06:14

young people, young people continue to have to play a big role in the growth of Islam.

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

And in helping the process and them succeed with his mission. There weren't a group of people that he just,

00:06:23--> 00:06:41

you know, attracted and motivated early on. And that said, he forgot them. No, they continued to be part of major events, not only as participants, but also as decision makers. They were involved in the decision making process.

00:06:43--> 00:06:52

They were involved at the leadership level they were they were advisors of the prophets, Allah, Allah Alison. Did the promises need advisors?

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

Well, Allah has said to him,

00:06:58--> 00:07:13

What shall we do if you can sell them? Engage them in the process, and the Prophet said them did that. And the young the young people were the majority of the Muslim population at every stage, the early stages and the later stages.

00:07:14--> 00:07:36

In some of these big names that we know that's a habit that we respect they were when they started their interaction or their involvement with the province of Salem, they were teenagers, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam understood their issues and their challenges and their needs. And he used to have a strong connection with them. Some Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Right? So

00:07:37--> 00:07:39

one of the first

00:07:40--> 00:08:03

and here we get into the crux of the of the of the lecture, one of the first things of the prophecy, one of the major roles of prophecies had played in the lives of these young men and women was that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was their mentor. And he was their guide in the process, and always made sure that they remained to have a balanced lifestyle

00:08:05--> 00:08:06

and be functional.

00:08:07--> 00:08:53

youth, young people have the tendency to be overzealous, right? And get excited and sometimes, so they need someone to help them recalibrate. They need someone to help keep them in check or guide them to what is best, because they have a lot of energy. We know that it was young, three young men that came to the wives of the prophesy and send them to inquire about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam his lifestyle. What was his lifestyle, like what was a bad day like? And when they learned about the privatized sellers, lifestyle, *a, aloha. They thought it wasn't much, we could do more. And then they said to themselves, of course, it's not that we can do more than the profit. The profit doesn't

00:08:53--> 00:09:30

need to do more. We need to do more the process LM Allah azza wa jal has given him this very special status, he doesn't need to do more. But we on the other hand, we are sinners, we have shortcomings. We are who we are, we know ourselves, we need to do more. So one of them said, we need to do something excessive, something extreme. And, you know, so one of them said, I am not going to get married. The other one said, I'm not going to sleep at night, I'm going to pray every single night all night long. The third person said, I'm not going to break my fast. I'm going to fast every single day. We have the energy, we have the strength. We should do this.

00:09:31--> 00:09:40

All almost self torture. When the President said when this news reached the province, I said I'm the province. I knew that there is here a misconception

00:09:42--> 00:09:48

and an approach that needs to be corrected. And it's it needs to be addressed right away.

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

And the father Selim, you know, took it took on it, you know, on this and he he tackled it head on. So the process and said man, he didn't go on them

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

member on the pulpit start publicizing their names and put post and no, he didn't he didn't care.

00:10:08--> 00:10:48

Who it like about the specific identities of the individuals, he knew this is this is this could be something that other people may have. And it may spread amongst the young people. So the problem solver addressed it right away. And he said never know, what is the matter with some people who think such and such and such and such. I met in the actual company, Allah, Allah, I fear Allah the most. And I know Allah the best, right? And this is my traditions. Right? So the problem is, I've corrected that behavior, you know, you need to have a balance in your life. That wasn't the only the only example there was another example.

00:10:50--> 00:11:04

Abdullah having been in the house was also one of the use of the companions. And he said, Come to Musa hidden Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said I was very active

00:11:05--> 00:11:06

during the time of the Prophet sallahu

00:11:08--> 00:11:12

wa Ana Rajan sharp, and I was a young man.

00:11:14--> 00:11:19

For the word Jenny Abbey, he was a young man, as a teenager, he said, My father

00:11:22--> 00:11:38

got me married to a woman from the Muslims, to a, you know, a nice Muslim lady. I know some of the fathers here are panicking. The Shed was gonna really ruin her plan. With our young, he's, I'm not trying to tell you marry your child when they're a teenager.

00:11:39--> 00:11:47

If they're their cable, that's fine. It's all I'm saying is just, this is a story. Back Back in the days they used to get married

00:11:50--> 00:11:51

the right time.

00:11:53--> 00:11:56

All right. So so Abdullah,

00:11:57--> 00:11:58

was a teenager.

00:11:59--> 00:12:10

I don't recall exactly how old he was. But he must have been 13 or 14. I don't think he was even 15 When he got married. So he said, My father married me to a Muslim lady.

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

He said,

00:12:15--> 00:12:18

One day, he came to check on me that his father is who by the way, Abdullah.

00:12:25--> 00:12:26

So he said,

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

he said

00:12:32--> 00:12:38

that my father came to check on me, and he asked my wife, how's your husband? So she said,

00:12:40--> 00:12:42

the man does not sleep at night.

00:12:43--> 00:12:50

And he does not eat during the day. Meaning he fasts every day. He prays every night, all night long.

00:12:54--> 00:12:57

So his father was upset.

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

And he said,

00:13:02--> 00:13:06

he said to him, he advised him, he gave him advice. So he said, I didn't listen to him.

00:13:08--> 00:13:12

So he said, My father went and told the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam.

00:13:14--> 00:13:32

When the when, when the process had been found out. He obviously told Abdullah that you can do this. So I sleep at night and I pray at night and I fast some days and I. So he basically told Abdullah, listen, Abdullah, you need there is something here that needs to be adjusted. He said,

00:13:34--> 00:13:36

fast three days every month.

00:13:38--> 00:13:46

So he said to him, Abdullah said he started negotiating with the province of Salem, he said, he said Messenger of Allah, but I can do more.

00:13:47--> 00:13:51

So he said, Okay, fast every Monday and Thursday, so I can do more.

00:13:53--> 00:14:00

So he told him then fast every other day fast one day and break your fat. He said, I can do more of the process. I'm told him there is no more than that.

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

I said, that's the best you can do more than that.

00:14:05--> 00:14:06

And then he told him

00:14:08--> 00:14:20

finish the Quran, because he used to pray at night to finish the Quran, right? He said to finish the Quran once a month. He said I can do more than that. So he said to him finish it every 15 days.

00:14:21--> 00:14:39

So he said to him, I can do more than that. So he said, then read it once a week, meaning four times a month, finish the whole Quran. So he said Messenger of Allah, I can do that. I can do more than that. He said then every three days, meaning how many Jews a day and 1/3 every day

00:14:40--> 00:14:58

10 times a month. Right. Abdullah said to the Prophet I can do more than that. The prophesy said and said to him, there is nothing more than that. You can do that. And that is why we take from it. The Sunnah is not to go through the Quran in less than three days. Unless that's your full time job.

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

Right

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

So, so we see here that the province of Allah and they send them was involved and he's he's, he's guiding them. He's he's engaging them, he's making sure that they're there. They're following a moderate and balanced lifestyle. Number two, the second thing that we find the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam engage the youth,

00:15:23--> 00:15:30

young people in some of the most critical and, and important missions.

00:15:31--> 00:15:37

So they were involved in the decision making process when it comes to

00:15:40--> 00:15:54

when it comes to deployment of expeditions and armies, they were in the leadership, they were consulted with regards to various tactics, the process of them had to use to employ. If you recall,

00:15:56--> 00:15:59

in the study of the Sierra, we all remember the Battle of

00:16:01--> 00:16:05

who did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whose advice or

00:16:06--> 00:16:07

pretty much

00:16:08--> 00:16:10

whose opinion to the Prophet send them choose?

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

Is he in the Battle of the bronze set of consulted the community?

00:16:18--> 00:16:30

The reports say that the young companions, most of whom did not participate in the Battle of better either because they were under age.

00:16:31--> 00:16:44

Right? So they were not old enough, or because they were not ready. They didn't have equipments. They didn't have weapons, they were not prepared for a battle.

00:16:46--> 00:17:31

And they were the majority of the community, they were the majority of the what you would call the general body. These companions were eager to do what these young, young and restless and strong companions were eager to show or to participate in to show their, their, you know, to play a role. Right? So when the prophets of Allah has sent me on hammock, Allah when the Prophet consulted them, and he said, Should we stay in Medina and have street fight because the Mexican army and by the standards of those days, that was a massive army, Medina, the city was a village was a small village, and you have an army of 3000 soldiers coming to invade Medina. So the process sort of said,

00:17:32--> 00:18:09

If we allow them into the city of Medina, the narrow streets of Medina, they will disperse. We don't have to confront or clash with, you know, one, one army that was like 3000 men strong. And they said, they will disperse and we will fight them in the streets. We know Medina better than them. Right. So that was one option. And this was the suggestion of the elders of the community. But they were the minority. The majority were young people who said Messenger of Allah, we shouldn't do this. We should go outside Medina and confront them.

00:18:10--> 00:18:20

Right? In a conventional warfare, using conventional tactics to armies, meeting at a particular location, and then basically engaging

00:18:21--> 00:18:31

lie of who knew you're gonna let them not think that we're afraid of them. We're not going to stay in the city wait for them to come. Let them not think that we're afraid we're ready to go fight.

00:18:33--> 00:18:48

And because they were the majority, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what did he do? He accepted. He took that opinion, because Allah told him in the Quran, we shall consult him in the matter. So the province of Salem went to the opinion of the majority,

00:18:49--> 00:19:21

most of whom are what? youth, young people. Now when the Prophet said them came back after he put his gear, and he was about to deploy the army, they said, the Messenger of Allah when he was gone into his house, they had a discussion amongst them, the elders of the community, chastise them. They're like, you pressure the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When the Prophet Selim wanted to stay in Medina, you pressured him, and they're like, Okay, we're sorry, we don't have experience, you know, okay. So when the process of them came out, they said, Messenger of Allah, we changed our minds.

00:19:22--> 00:19:33

We'll go with whatever, you know, the process has taught them another lesson in decision making, once a decision is made, they wish I would have ammo for either Assumpta fatawa, Canada Allah.

00:19:35--> 00:19:39

When I, you know, you shouldn't be wishy washy about things.

00:19:40--> 00:20:00

You should not be indecisive. It's time for what? We made a decision. We stick with it for you that hasn't we made the decision to what kind of Allah we put our trust in Allah subhanaw taala. Right. And we're going to put a plan as to how to fight this battle. It was the youth who were involved. That wasn't the

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

Only time as your ma the youth were involved. Can you imagine? The Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam for this? Well,

00:20:09--> 00:20:14

let's fast forward the last. This was one of the early fights. So

00:20:15--> 00:20:57

we we even know that even in the Battle of budget they participated, the last and the final expedition, the final campaign in the life of the prophet Sallallahu. They send them who was the commander of the army. Some of his eight historians say that he was 17 he wasn't even 18 He was 17 years old, was Simon his aide was the commander of the entire army, an army that had in his ranks Abu Bakr, Omar Usman Ali, Bala Zubayr aboard Aveda. So even his aid now of all these big names, and heard him worried, and I'm robbing us

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

who's in charge of the Army, Osama bin Zayed.

00:21:06--> 00:21:11

This shows you that there was consistent progress and consistently engage them and involve them.

00:21:12--> 00:21:13

He built leaders.

00:21:15--> 00:21:24

Right? He built leaders was sama was capable. And when people questioned or Simas leadership, the problem was Salem defended Osama.

00:21:25--> 00:21:32

He defended his leadership. He said people questioned the leadership of his father who was killed a year or two before that.

00:21:34--> 00:21:46

He said, And today they're questioning the leadership of Osama the son. And indeed his father was worthy of leadership was a great leader and sama is worthy of leadership. He's a great leader.

00:21:47--> 00:21:50

And Osama proved the province of Salem. Right.

00:21:52--> 00:22:31

Right. Obviously the prospect of knew what he was doing Salalah Santa? Right. And not everyone was pleased or happy. Right. Some people really were not didn't feel right. Okay. 17, a teenager leaders on this very critical mission. Yes, he was worthy. He gave him a chance. Right? It's not about even giving him a chance of understanding he had the problem and Saddam has full confidence. And later the problem isn't even wasn't there when the army was fully deployed. When the army actually, you know, went out. It was Abu Bakar. But because of the of the decision to prophesize has been made. And because of the confidence the promise and settlement had in Oussama and his leadership when Abu

00:22:31--> 00:22:58

Bakr took over a walk and said, I'm not going to reverse a decision made by the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the prophet knew what he was doing. And if the prophet put his trust in Osama, we should put our trust in Osama I have my trusty Sam is going to proceed. And obviously now because of a bunker is no longer under Obama's leadership. Because the Khalifa he has higher ranking, right? Abu Bakr was able he could have undone that decision. But he did it.

00:22:59--> 00:23:12

And he actually engaged Osama in a very humble way. Because right before the death of the Prophet Abu Bakr was under the leadership of Osama with the Prophets death and Abubaker being elected as Khalifa Abu Bakr now became what?

00:23:14--> 00:23:44

He became on top now he's above him. Right? Abu Bakr asked who summer to allow him to keep Omar, he said, Osama would you spare Omar? Can I keep Omar with me? I need him as my advisor. You're taking everyone else. Osama took the top leadership of the community, the top or everyone with him? And Simon said of course Khalifa you you're the Khalifa, you're the policy maker.

00:23:45--> 00:23:47

He said no. This is your army. This is your decision.

00:23:48--> 00:23:50

I'm not going to overrule you

00:23:52--> 00:24:07

look at at at at how you build leaders. Right. So this is this is one. This is also another example that reinforces that this was a consistent pattern.

00:24:08--> 00:24:29

In the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam number three I'll give you a third thing. Engage them also in other missions, that involves teaching and educating people and spreading Islam and spreading the Dawa and even being His ambassadors and emissaries

00:24:30--> 00:24:33

who was the prophesy Salim is first ambassador and emissary

00:24:35--> 00:24:44

I'm most I've never made the most I've ever made was it was was young. Well, the Allahu Anwar Allah. He was a young man

00:24:45--> 00:24:59

and must have been a man within a year was able to accomplish an amazing, you know, achievement whatsoever. No man was able to attract right more than 80 people or households in Medina.

00:25:00--> 00:25:08

To convert to Islam, most of our man has on his list of people that he invited to Islam and convinced

00:25:09--> 00:25:14

to join the province of Salem to join the mission of Islam. He had people likes, sad,

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

sad,

00:25:19--> 00:26:05

sad when we heard him say himself was young. When he died, he was 33 Probably Allah Allahu Allah. He was in his, like 20s when he accepted his late 20s When he accepted Islam, but it was this charismatic young man from Mecca by the name of most abnormal, very classy, well spoken, articulate, intelligent, knowledgeable, passionate about the dollar, right comes from, from from a very noble family. Right? It was, it was the right person. He was very attractive, he was very eloquent is your man until now we bring the youth, you know, and we engage them. And sometimes we don't want to give them the platform. And, you know, we want to talk to them, they speak better English than we do.

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

They understand the culture better. They make great diaries, they just need the information. They need to be empowered, they need to be in girt encouraged, they need to be mentored, they need to be taught, they will do a better job, we still like to make the announcements and we still want to be the ones in the forefront. We want to be the spokespeople, we want to be the people calling people to Islam.

00:26:27--> 00:26:43

Right? When they can do a better job, all we need to do is educate them and teach them and empower them. Right? So that's what the person gives them the tools. That's what the pastor said them did. And then we wonder why we're not you know, you know, we question our success rate.

00:26:44--> 00:26:50

They have the capable I remember, you know, young people in their MSA is at MSU is

00:26:52--> 00:26:56

how often they were able to really, you know, attract people to the religion

00:26:57--> 00:27:02

and bring them so, this is something in the province I said, Let me utilize Salalah and

00:27:06--> 00:27:08

fight. And there are many,

00:27:09--> 00:27:41

many other examples the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to encourage them to get to be active and play sports and he would sometimes even join them. But the Prophet SAW Selim also understood their emotional and physical needs. He even understood he was very compassionate some Allah they said them with regards to their struggles. We all know that famous story when one young man came to the foxhole Allah they sent him and he said, he also Allah it is the Neva Zina Messenger of Allah, I can't take it. I'm struggling. give me permission. I need this give me permission to commit Zina.

00:27:43--> 00:27:45

And give me an exemption. The pastor Sam said,

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

Get closer.

00:27:50--> 00:28:26

He didn't chase him out on the Masjid. This isn't a masjid question. Never we pass I'm told him. That's what he'll make. Would you accept that for your mother? Obviously, this kind of reasoning, or this kind of logic resonates with with someone who comes from that kind of cultural background right now, because people need to be careful before they use a particular logic out of us cultural and historical context. It may not work the same way. So anyway, so he said to him, I thought Allah who will make you accept it for your mother. He's like, No, he said, Cavalli Canis, now alone only Omaha team. Likewise, people don't accept that for their mothers.

00:28:27--> 00:28:38

I told Allahu the optic, would you accept that for your for your sister? He's like, No, obviously. No. He said, likewise, people don't accept it for their sisters. I mean, if you've ever met this hookup

00:28:39--> 00:28:49

culture, like if you're gonna hook up with someone, it's gonna be someone's mother, someone's sister or someone's daughter, and no one accepts that. And the fact that you don't accept it tells you that there's something wrong with it.

00:28:50--> 00:29:30

Right? The proper way to go about it is to be serious and make a commitment and get married. depositor sallam said, Then he made two out for him, he placed his hand on his chest, and he made two out for him along the Hudson, Allahu Akbar who have sinned, he made and by the time the person lifted his hand, this young man said that desire and urge that he had for Zina was gone as Xena became something very disgusting it's like no way I wouldn't ever do this. Something like this. He cured him from that evil desire. Right? But also the prophets Allah made a declaration he made an announcement Yeah, I'm not sure Shabaab or young men. Money so far. I mean, going back to Felicia,

00:29:30--> 00:29:34

it has always if one of you is capable of getting married get married, that's the right way.

00:29:35--> 00:29:38

Right there is nothing wrong with with with you getting married.

00:29:39--> 00:30:00

You're not more pious by you know celibacy or you know depriving yourself from marriage you know from your from your fulfilling your needs doesn't make you a good person. Right. So get married by all means. Well, man, let me assaulted father he was so if you cannot then fast, here's a tip or a recommendation until you're able to do so. That's someone who's wondering

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

stance. Not only that, but the example that I gave I don't know if you were here

00:30:07--> 00:30:07

where you hear

00:30:13--> 00:30:16

when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Malik Coronavirus,

00:30:17--> 00:30:22

a young companion, he said, Me and group of young friends.

00:30:23--> 00:30:34

We went there apparently from an area that was a little further from the masjid of the prophesy center. Right? A long distance. He said, Me.

00:30:35--> 00:30:44

And a bunch of young men went to the Prophet SAW Allah or they will send them messages. And we camped there.

00:30:45--> 00:30:56

Right? To learn from the prophesy Salem and to be in his company. They can't they're like, like they're getting a crash course or something like that.

00:30:57--> 00:31:14

So they're there day and night and the mission of the prophets, Allah Allah is and he said, after 20 days of the prophecy, I'm teaching us and us being there with him every prayer learning from him, right? It's like a camp like a youth camp or like, like learning like

00:31:16--> 00:31:24

the Prophet has said, and he said, he started asking us about our family life and about Selena and Adelina.

00:31:25--> 00:31:34

He started asking us as to who we left behind. So guess what the problem set and found out? He found out that all of them, or most of them were what

00:31:36--> 00:32:00

were newlyweds. They were all married young men. God for one, and Elena. What can our Haman, he said, the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam assumed that we were yearning and we were missing our, our families and our wives. And the province center was a very compassionate and considerate person.

00:32:01--> 00:32:03

So he told us to go home.

00:32:04--> 00:32:25

The Prophet said to them, as much as he wanted them to stay there and learn more, and he was enjoying their company. He realized also that they have what they have emotional and physical needs, so do their wives and their family members, their parents. He said, You know, he said, Go back to your families. Go back to your loved ones.

00:32:26--> 00:32:28

Right. It has been a long time, three weeks.

00:32:30--> 00:32:41

And when it's time for Salah, let one of you call the event, as you learned from from your stay here. And let the eldest amongst you lead leads you in Salah?

00:32:44--> 00:32:50

The President didn't say No, you shouldn't, you didn't even finish 40 days or four months.

00:32:51--> 00:32:53

Right? Go you have needs go.

00:32:55--> 00:32:56

Salalah Davidson

00:32:59--> 00:33:18

and there are many other examples of how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a very understanding and caring. Not only did he engage them to the process and understood their issues, very often the process also will have intimate one on one.

00:33:19--> 00:33:40

Conversation conversations or interactions with them. He did that with LSVT Malik, after loving ibis, his own cousin when they've been in the provinces. And I'm also would want for instance, rode with the province of Salem, by the way, there are many ahaadeeth many people most of whom are young people who used to write with the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam,

00:33:41--> 00:33:51

right after you live in the toilet. Right and father of an ibis, but these were young people after loving ibis, more either in a Jevon

00:33:52--> 00:34:02

they, they they would the promise that they will go on a ride with the promises. Hello, you have a right jump behind me in the past, I don't want to engage them and talk to them.

00:34:03--> 00:34:09

Right about serious issues or challenges, and they took advantage of these opportunities.

00:34:10--> 00:34:16

Javon Abdullah also was young, right? The province of Salem used to

00:34:17--> 00:34:20

counsel them and he used to consult them. I'll conclude with this example.

00:34:25--> 00:34:41

Not every everyone is the same some some of our youth are very charismatic, very smart, very wise. And they have wisdom. Right? Or they have insight, especially in areas of that they are passionate about or they may have experience.

00:34:43--> 00:34:49

consulting them, engaging them in getting their feedback is very important for their own self confidence

00:34:50--> 00:34:52

to develop that, right.

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

So when the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam was going through a personal crisis, it was a personal crisis.

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

says

00:35:01--> 00:35:07

the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, his own wife was accused of adultery

00:35:08--> 00:35:10

right? By

00:35:12--> 00:35:14

Isha herself in a hadith.

00:35:15--> 00:35:29

In that long Hadith collected by Imam Bukhari tells us that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam summoned two companions, two young men to consult them regarding Atisha. I assure yourself as young

00:35:30--> 00:35:36

he consulted someone of the same age group. Who did he consult

00:35:37--> 00:35:51

early and sama they're part of them. They're part of the household of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, Ali and Osama the Prophet was in his 50s. He is consulting with Sam Abizaid

00:35:53--> 00:35:59

who is like his own grandson, who is the son of his at some point of his former adopted son,

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

Sam ovens eight. And who Sam at that point must have been Oussama was exactly 1414.

00:36:16--> 00:36:17

Who else did he consult?

00:36:19--> 00:36:21

Alia about the Allah Allah, Allah, he was in his 20s.

00:36:23--> 00:36:25

He consulted Ali, and Osama.

00:36:26--> 00:36:34

And when you hear what Osama had to say, shows charisma was the knowledge

00:36:35--> 00:36:39

of the Alon. He consulted them about his own marriage.

00:36:40--> 00:36:51

Because he felt they are the best. They can relate to his issue. They can relate to each other, they can relate to his issue. They are from the household, they understand what he's going through. It's like, what do you think?

00:36:54--> 00:36:54

Danny?

00:36:57--> 00:37:09

What do you think that did to their not only self confidence, but to even you know, when they were I don't want to say challenged, but when they were engaged at that level, what do you think it did to them? Did that help them grow?

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

It did, must have helped them grow.

00:37:15--> 00:37:20

So this is the example that we have when it comes to POS and Salem and his engagement of the youth. He has

00:37:22--> 00:37:25

a community that does not have

00:37:27--> 00:37:35

a body or a group of young members who are not active, proactive,

00:37:37--> 00:37:46

and fully engaged and interested in the mission and the objective of that community. That community is a failing community.

00:37:48--> 00:38:00

It's a failing community, if the objectives and the goals and the mission of that community is only right, in the hands of very few aging, right?

00:38:01--> 00:38:04

group of people, that's a community that is dying.

00:38:06--> 00:38:23

If the idea of, of what we're doing here as a Muslim community, right, if if what we're what we came together for, is not something that we pass on, not only pass on if our youth and young professionals are not as enthusiastic.

00:38:25--> 00:38:31

If they don't buy into the mission of our community, we are a dead community.

00:38:32--> 00:38:39

And that province had a new that SallAllahu Sallam so they were engaged from the get go from the very beginning from the inception.

00:38:41--> 00:39:22

And the province has said them was fully with them. Salallahu Alaihe Salam backing them and they were there wholeheartedly with the prophets, Allah Allah, they will set them and we saw wonders, right? That these young, most extraordinary group of young people was capable of doing. Of course, most of the example that I gave were male companions, but also the women of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were as amazing as the men. There are great examples of the Sahaba yet, but only Allah Han Han Solo especially the young Sahaba yet and their involvement, their engagement with the province of Salem and their contribution to the mission to the success of the

00:39:22--> 00:39:41

mission of the prophets of Allah is love the Allahu Anhu and homage along May Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with them. Maybe inshallah we'll dedicate one night to talk about the contribution of the young female companions of the province is starting with his own daughters, especially 14 Out of the Allahu Ana, who, when she was even 12

00:39:42--> 00:39:59

She was willing to defend the Prophet SAW Selim fight back she stood to the Metcons to the to the to the chiefs of crush, right, scalded them as she stood to defend the promise of them will no one dared Abdullah and Mr. Wood says said we couldn't do anything we could not remove the filth of the

00:40:00--> 00:40:11

Back of the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam, the only person that was able to do that was Fatima. She came and she did and she dared them and no one dare to come near her or, or even talk to her.

00:40:12--> 00:40:20

Well they Allah and Allah Allah. So they were as as engaged as supportive Radi Allahu Anhu. Know Allah Han.

00:40:21--> 00:40:30

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask otherwise in sha Allah, our session is done. It's 930 is any question.

00:40:31--> 00:40:32

So in sha Allah to Allah,

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

one of the things we're doing here in sha Allah in the message is that we are developing programs and activities

00:40:41--> 00:40:48

to empower and engage our young, our youth,

00:40:49--> 00:40:55

our middle schoolers, high schoolers, college students, and even young professionals.

00:40:56--> 00:41:36

So we're going through some revamping, and fine tuning and restructuring. So there will be a bunch of announcements coming out in Charlotte to elaborate activities and programs. I'm so excited tonight, it was really so great. It was like a breath of fresh air, as they say, the session that we had before Asia, with the college students and Hamdulillah, we're back. One of the youth told me because we by the way, we're not really, I don't think Dhanesh I'm not sure if you have any. If you read any reports, or you saw these studies, I think we're yet to fully understand the impact of the two years of COVID and the social distancing on this particular generation. I remember Yeah, one

00:41:36--> 00:41:37

young.

00:41:38--> 00:42:07

I think he's in college now. One time he told me this, this is less than a year ago. He's, and these are kids that grew up in the old Musala they were part of it. So I was like, so what does it take to bring you back? He's like, I don't know. I don't know what it takes. He's like, he was very down. I said, why? He's like, I don't know. So I said, Is it me? Is it us? Did we do something? Is it because why you left? What is it? What is it? He's like, no, no, no, it's none of that said it's COVID

00:42:09--> 00:42:50

COVID and you can see it you can see it's Friday night, you see how we're used to the distance We're used to the virtual world, right, some people are you know, are starting to get comfortable with the idea of socializing and embracing each other and being too close to others. So it did impact all of us and imagine how it must have impacted them. Right. So so we need to do something to really counter that that that loss or that damage that was that was that happened because of the COVID years but inshallah Tada so we have some ideas and some activities coming I'm very excited Inshallah, the end of

00:42:52--> 00:42:57

the end of the month. I'm excited about a program that we have where it's Semia

00:42:58--> 00:43:33
