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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:07--> 00:00:46

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa Sallim wa barik ala Nabi ramatuelle houda Mohamed el amin, ala alihi wa sahbihi pinata Hina woman tibia homie a son in law Yomi Dean, we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, all his companions, his entire household We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless them all and to grant every one of them goodness and to bless every single one of us, and to grant us all goodness brothers and sisters, a very important clarification that needs to be made from what we said yesterday. We all know in the books of Sierra the books of history that have

00:00:46--> 00:01:29

recorded the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The story of the martyrdom of Hamza bin Abdul muttalib is made mention of and the story that is narrated commonly known that hint vintera to baja de la Juana. We made mention of her yesterday, It is reported that she was from amongst those who had chewed on the liver of Hamza, even Abdul muttalib, Ravi Allah and that is incorrect. And this is something that needed correction. We mentioned it yesterday, and we should never be embarrassed to correct ourselves. In fact, wherever there is a difference of opinion between those who have recorded history and those who have recorded Hadith, we should remember that those who have

00:01:29--> 00:02:11

recorded Hadith are given preference because they have what is known as Senate, which means the chain of narrators. So for some reason, yes, it is correct that Hamza bin Abdul muttalib Robbie Allahu anhu. His body was mutilated, but to degrade hint bin Jared Bharati Allah. And to the degree that we've all been making mention of her having chewed the liver of Hamza Eben Abdulmutallab, it requires a clarification and for us to say that that is inaccurate, although it has been made mention of in so many books, and this was brought forth by a little bit of research that was done. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us goodness and ease so much so that washi

00:02:14--> 00:02:57

or the Allahu Allah was not a slave of Hyndman terutama but rather he was a slave of Jabez to him, so it was debated No. macrame who had told him to do what he did? And it was not hint vintera to radi Allahu Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all goodness and may we be from amongst those who can spread what is correct and learn from that which is incorrect that no matter how popular the story is, but it actually requires clarification, may Allah Subhana Allah Allah bless us all. This evening we will be talking about the one whom Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loved the most so much so that he was known as hibou Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, the one who was loved

00:02:57--> 00:03:11

by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam The only companion from amongst all those who followed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whose name is mentioned in the Quran. phylum qobuz, a dome in

00:03:13--> 00:04:01

Naka la kabara. Allah makes mentioned in Surah Tula HAZOP of the name Zaid, this was a dibny haritha harati Allah one. So what is his story? Why was he so loved by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam let us take a look at what happened. His mother's name was suited up into Alabama. She was from Benny man. And she was married elsewhere. She wanted to go home to meet her family once. So she took her child with her and she had gone And what happened is haritha, who's the father of zayde had made sure that she joined a caravan that was that was trustworthy in order to get to bernama and, and according to the narrations. She got to ban Oman. And at some stage either while she was there or on

00:04:01--> 00:04:03

the journey back. They were

00:04:05--> 00:04:11

they were waylaid by a group of people they were attacked by a group of people from Bhanu Kane.

00:04:13--> 00:04:53

And what happened is they were taken their property was taken and from amongst them little children who were they were enslaved. And this was the habit of the pagan Arabs, which was stopped by Islam. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us an understanding. So it was also the habit in the European era at that particular time and even beyond. And we read that it was across the globe that this was a habit. When people were attacked, they were enslaved for no reason. And the attack was solely to be robbing their property what we would term highwayman and highwayman were known across the globe in parts of Europe and Arabia and elsewhere. So what had happened here is they didn't haritha was a

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

little boy, approximately eight years old. They took him and they went to a car or car was

00:05:00--> 00:05:19

In the Arabian Peninsula, one of the festivals where they used to buy and sell things, and you know, they had marketplace where people used to bring their products from different parts of the peninsula and sell them there. So they had a lot of young boys whom they were selling at the time and young girls, so they sold they didn't haritha who was a young boy

00:05:20--> 00:06:03

into the market and who bought him. Hakeem hypnotism, this man, Robbie Allah and later accepted Islam, but he was the nephew of Khadija been to Hawaii lado de la Miranda who later married Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. So what happened to this young boy, he was taken captive and he was sold. I want to pause there for a moment. There are so many people whom Allah subhanho wa Taala had chosen to be the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yet, they were brought to Makkah to mukaiyama by different means, and different stories all miraculous, we heard about Sandman and fantasy we heard about the others, and Subhanallah This is one of those stories where he was brought as a slave

00:06:03--> 00:06:44

enslaved and we brought to be sold. It reminds us of the story of the Prophet Joseph our use of Allah His salatu salam, may peace be upon him where he was also sold in the market as a slave later to become one of the top leaders and the Nabhi of Allah subhanho wa Taala a prophet. So from this, we learn that sometimes in our lives, negative things happen in order for a positive door to be opened later on. Do not become depressed. Do not be people who actually lose hope in the mercy of Allah. You need to know Allah always has a better plan, but you need to have firm conviction and you need to pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala at all times. So he was sold. And Hakeem hypnotism brought

00:06:44--> 00:07:27

him into Makkah. And when Khadija been to Hawaii, radi Allahu Allah, who was the aunt of Hakeem in Islam or the law and went to meet him, in order to welcome him home from that festival of OCAD, and so on, and to see what he had done. He said, Oh, my aunt, I've bought a few slaves, I want you to look at any one of them and take them as a gift from me to you. SubhanAllah so she looked at the faces, and she chose a diviner harita probably Allah and young boy. And he, he was dark in complexion. He was short, and he was a little boy who looked quite fit. And he looked decent, quite a shy type of a boy Subhana Allah. So she took him and she kept in quite well. And a little while

00:07:27--> 00:08:10

later, a few years later, she married Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam some narration say that a few months later, and some say a few years later, we know a little bit of a time later. So when she married Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. She said, I would like to give you a servant as a gift. And that is this young boy. So who was he they didn't have either given as a gift and the servant to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and the two did not part from that day Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam treated him so well. So well, that I will tell you something that will bring tears to your eyes. So panela they he treated him as though he was from his own family. So obviously now when sir Da Vinci

00:08:10--> 00:08:51

tala went back to her people and told them, this is what happened and our son has been taken, they started hunting for him. So the father, whose name was haritha, in Shara Hill, what he did is he started hunting for the sun. And they did not find any news about him for a long, long time. And they did not know should we pray for him as a dead person or should we have hope that he's alive? Nothing. Until one day a group of people from the same clan had come to Makkah to engage in the pilgrimage. And once they were engaged in tawaf, during that period of pre Islamic ignorance, they saw as a diviner haritha he saw them, he recognized them, they recognized him. So they said, Hey,

00:08:51--> 00:09:29

what's happened to you? So he told him the story. I am with a man here he is known as Muhammad Abdullah, and I'm here in courage, they sold me for 400. Durham's, and this is who I'm with, those people went home and they told haritha and when they saw her, either, they said, we've seen your son immediately without seeing the evening. How is that collected or whatever wealth he had, and he took one of his other sons and they rushed to muckety muck Rama, and they arrived at the door of Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Hashimi al Karachi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this was prior to Prophethood prior to Prophethood imagine they knocked on the door Who are you? They entered so on? Well, you know you

00:09:29--> 00:10:00

are good people you people are from Quraysh Okay, where are you getting to? Subhana Allah, you people are the ones who give water to the Hajaj You are the ones who help those who are poor and destitute. You are the ones who do so much good. And we have come to you with a plea. Oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what was the plea? The plea is that we want our son from you and who is your son? Subhana Allah zeytinburnu haritha zeytinburnu haritha Yes, we are here with whatever amount you want. We will pay you and we want to take him back.

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

This is his story. This is what has happened to him.

00:10:04--> 00:10:20

Subhan Allah. So Mohammed salatu salam says, I give him to you without any money, why should I want money? I give him to you without any money. But just one thing, call him here and see if he wants to come with you let him come. And if he wants to stay, the condition is you allow him to stay.

00:10:21--> 00:11:02

Amazing. So they called a deep niharika, who was delighted to see his father and his brother Subhana. Allah, do you know these people's eight? Yes, that's my father. This is my brother. Well, they are here to take you with them. He looked at them and says, I'm not coming with you. Subhana Allah, the father says Jose if you choose to be a slave, and we are here to free you, say dibny haritha says Allah He, if you know this man whom I'm with, and if you know even a little bit of how he treats me and what he does with me, and the respect and honor that we have for each other, and the love that we have for each other, you will understand my decision Subhan Allah, Allah He there

00:11:02--> 00:11:46

is greater hope for me. With him then with you Subhana Allah, this is who they didn't have before Prophethood. So Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was very touched by this so much so that the narration say he went to the Kaaba and made an announcement for courage to know that this boy is my son, he is free. And at the same time, when I die, he will inherit me. That means he's no longer a slave free man. And it also means From this day on, he will be known as as the son of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, zeytinburnu, Mohammed. So Quraysh they were very excited because obviously it's a good deed done by one of their own who has Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam they used to call zeytinburnu

00:11:46--> 00:12:26

Mohammed, and when, when haritha inshallah he'll so saw this, he was happy. And he told the other son that okay, we can go back now because we know that our son is okay and he's safe. Perhaps we may find out about his news later on and so on. But they left him there, and they decided to depart. This was they didn't have either. The Love was so much that everyone used to call him zedi bin Mohammed, the day of Revelation. When Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came down to Khadija been to Hawaii literally Allahu Allah. We all know that the first from amongst those to accept Islam. Khadija been to Hawaii, the Allahu Allah was the first human being. She was the wife of

00:12:26--> 00:12:33

Mohammed salatu salam, she accepted Islam after that, from amongst those who are sevens. The first was they did niharika.

00:12:34--> 00:13:12

And we have Abu Bakr Siddiq are the Allahu anhu the first from amongst the men. And we have Ali ibn Abi Talib radi Allahu anhu, the first from amongst the children Subhanallah these were those who are closest to Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, stop for a minute. When those whom you live with bear witness that you are a good person, then indeed you are a good person, because they see you 24 seven. So when your family says this is a good man, or this is a good woman, then that is the truth. But when other people bear witness for you, perhaps they only know your good side, they have not yet seen you when you get angry, you could be a disaster. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us. This

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

is why the Hadith says

00:13:14--> 00:13:50

the best from amongst you are those who are best to their family members. This is something unique that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught us. So those who are closest to him are the first to accept Islam. Think about that very deeply. And it should tell us more about the truthfulness of this beautiful message of Islam. And how we should be if we were to say something those closest to us should be the first to say yes, this man is telling the truth. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all goodness and ease, and may He make us from those whom those we live with? can bear witness that we are decent people I mean,

00:13:51--> 00:14:03

so my brothers and sisters, this is a didn't harihara the Allahu Allah. Thereafter, the Quran came down with a big clarification regarding say dibny haritha. What was the clarification?

00:14:04--> 00:14:37

He was so close to the heart of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam they used to call him loved son of Mohammed zeytinburnu, Mohammed, Mohammed and Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who chooses parents, not me or you no one, it is Allah who decides whom your father will be. And on the Day of Judgment, you will be called by your father's name according to the most correct narrations. In fact, that is the narration. Some people say no, you call with your mother's name, the truth is, it is your father's name. And Allah says, who the rumely Abba him who oppose

00:14:39--> 00:15:00

the law, call them with their father's names. That is what is justice in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. You want to know what is right. You want to know what Allah declares. Allah says I chose his father you call him so and so son of so and so the real father, who is his father, even if you've adopted

00:15:00--> 00:15:43

him so they knew that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam adopted the child and called him my son. So Allah says, Do not call him your son, say he is the son of haritha, Allahu Akbar, this was something heavy. But for Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, it was not heavy, because it came from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he destroyed one of the deep rooted cultures of the people at the time, they used to adopt and they used to say, that's my son. And they used to say, change the name to the degree that the child himself does not know who the father is. Subhana Allah, Islam says that is prohibited. It is the right the basic right of every human being, to know who their father and mother is Subhana

00:15:43--> 00:16:23

Allah. So if it is deception, you're not allowed. Sometimes I know in today's world, people might want to have a surname that might show that this person is part of us because we take care of them on condition that it is not deceptive, and on condition that the person knows clearly who they are. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us ease. Well, ah, it's becoming tough because sometimes we do not learn a lesson from this very story of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, it was the pagan practice to say, you know, once I adopt you forget about your parents. If If you want to know them, you no longer mine. If that is the way we think we have forgotten what Islam stands for. These verses were solid

00:16:23--> 00:16:31

verses that broke up a massive culture that had been trending in Mecca, Tomoko Rama, and at the time now Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us.

00:16:32--> 00:16:42

So Allah subhanho wa Taala review these verses. And then there was another verse also in Surah, to observe where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Mark Anna Mohammedan

00:16:45--> 00:17:15

middle Ninja alikoum wala Killa soon Allah He Maha teman me, lo Akbar, that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not a father of any one of the men from amongst you, you know, his children, the males had all died in infancy and childhood. sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So Allah says he was not a father from a man of any one of the men from amongst you, but instead he was the messenger, and he was the final of the messengers.

00:17:17--> 00:18:04

So this was Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Hashimi al Qureshi. He instructed the people do not call him zeytinburnu Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam call him his real name, z dibny haritha May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson. Thereafter, there was this culture that was also amongst the people at that time saying that if you had adopted a child, he was your child and he inherited you and this is what happened and so many other things as though he was exactly equal to a son that was from the same mother, same father. So what happened is at some stage, Allah subhanho wa Taala instructed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to advise a diviner haritha to marry Zane vintage, or the Allahu Allah

00:18:04--> 00:18:49

May Allah be pleased upon all of them. So upon the instruction of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam z dibny haritha, who came from the home that I've just mentioned, married a noble woman from Quraysh known as Xena Binti, Joshua Viola and, but the marriage did not work, not because anyone was bad No, because Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted a certain ruling to be made clear, and the certain practice of the pagan Arabs to be broken forever. And that was that this person whom you say is your son is not your son. So when the divorce took place, Allah instructed Mohammed Salah salam to marry Xena, Binti Josh, and this instruction came from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:18:50--> 00:19:27

So when he married Xena, Binti, Joshua, the Allahu Allah, all of the people knew that this means that this person can never be a son. We can never call them complete sons of ours, they are only adopted children. And this is why in Islam, if you want to look after an orphan or adopt someone, there is a limit to it whereby you look after them, you care for them, and you may give them whatever you'd like to give them in terms of goodness, but when it comes to inheritance, you need to write for them from the one third that you have control of because they are not going to automatically receive from what Allah subhanho wa Taala has given something is that's important to

00:19:27--> 00:19:56

make clear. And this is why we say the sooner and the life of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is so complete, that all of us have lessons from it. All of us, no matter what your life is all about, you will always draw correction from the life of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam inspiration, as well as guidelines May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us all goodness. So my brothers and sisters, the verse of the Quran, where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What is de Kooning, la de la la la,

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

la, la casa

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

Jukka tequila Watteau Fifi nuptse. Kamala OBD what action Salam.

00:20:10--> 00:20:30

Sha, Allah says, remember the time when you were telling the one whom Allah has blessed and the one whom you had favorite as well to fear Allah and to hold his wife and not divorce her yet in your heart, you knew that Allah had instructed you to marry her after he divorced her Subhana Allah.

00:20:31--> 00:21:08

So Allah says, Don't fear the people. Don't worry about what the people have to say worry about Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah is more befitting for you to be worried about I think the lesson is for us all. Sometimes we don't do things fearing what people will say. But Allah says What are you worried about people worry about me. If it is right according to Allah, forget about what the masses have to say. And if it is wrong about according to Allah, then forget about what the masters have to say as well. If they are encouraging you to engage in that which is wrong. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us so some people miss translate this verse, and they happen to insult Muhammad

00:21:08--> 00:21:46

Sallallahu Sallam by saying, oh, he was in love with Xena Binti Josh Neruda Billa that is not true. What is it that Allah says you kept in your heart whilst you were telling Zaid, look after your wife, but in your heart, you had something that you were keeping? Do you know what it was? It was the instruction of Allah that He knew in his heart, that's what it was. But Allah subhanho wa Taala has taught us all that when people are struggling in their marriages, you don't just go along and break the marriage. You look at it and try your best to make it work. So that's why Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam kept on telling him, be careful look after your wife Don't let this break. But

00:21:46--> 00:22:25

when it broke, he ended up marrying her all this was the instruction of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we need to understand this was a dignitary here and this was in a Binti, Joshua, the Allahu Allah, and this was Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And with this story of zeytinburnu harina, Allah subhanho wa Taala has taught us a lot we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless us so much so that some of the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam have said that when Mohammed salatu salam, so they didn't haritha coming from a journey or coming from afar, he would get up, he would rush towards him, he would hug him, give him a tight embrace and kiss him Subhana Allah, this is how

00:22:25--> 00:23:05

close the relationship was between Mohammed salatu salam and they didn't have either the only companion whose name is in the Quran, Subhana Allah, Allah wa. And he was a person whom it is reported that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam went to tarrif, they didn't haritha was one the one who was with him. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us a lesson. They didn't inherit or the Allah when he tried to be a barrier between the stones of those of tarrif and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam so much so that he was hurt as well as young as he was. Really May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us all. He passed away. He took part in a lot of the battles and he passed away in the Battle of Malta,

00:23:05--> 00:23:44

where we heard Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam gave the leadership to say dibny haritha if he were to be martyred, then Jafari, Vitali. And if he were to be martyred, then Abdullah hibbeler Aha. So the first one to be martyred was a dibny harihara Viola and in the year, the eighth hijiri. In the Battle of Mota, he is he is buried in Jordan. So if you visit Jordan, you might see that they will tell you here is the place where a diviner haritha is buried. May Allah peace and blessings be upon him. Just a quick note, people ask, why did the Battle of Malta take place? Well, the Prophet sallallaahu salam sent messages to the various parts of the peninsula and a little bit further and

00:23:44--> 00:24:17

from amongst those messengers inherited neurobehavioural as the ear of the Allahu anhu was sent, and he was killed. So when he was killed, when an ambassador is killed, what happens it creates a big disaster between countries. So at that time, the ambassador of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was killed. The army was made of 3000 men sent to motor to face the Romans who had killed the ambassador of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. That was the reason why this had taken place. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson. Our next hero, Amar,

00:24:18--> 00:24:19

Amar,

00:24:20--> 00:25:00

Amira, bumalik radi Allahu Allah. His story is also amazing and unique. His father was yasi dibner Amir, and he was a person who had come to Makkah with two of his brothers, Al Harith, and Malik. The reason why they came to Mecca to mukaiyama was to look for a fourth brother of this who was lost. He was the last person so they came to look after, or to look for the Fourth Brother. And this was the father of American yasir when they came to look for him, they did not find him so two of the brothers decided to go back and the third one decided to stay in Mecca. He liked the place but all this

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

was the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala to make them from amongst those who were the first to accept Islam?

00:25:06--> 00:25:49

So, yes, sir, who is the father of America said he stayed and he decided to strike a deal with Abu hanifa Brunel mahira from the masumi clan. Why? Because he had no relatives. So if someone harms me, I need someone who's going to defend me. So he struck a deal that you know what, we will be together and we will, I will do this and you will do this and the deal was struck Subhana Allah, the two of them had this treaty between them. And this was common in the Arabian times. So, a Buddha told him that, look, this is a slave girl of mine, her name is sumaiya, Binta yacht, you can marry her. So, yes, it was a foreigner from outside, he ended up marrying the slave girl SubhanAllah. And she

00:25:49--> 00:26:31

became known as a Sahabi. slightly later, what happened is something amazing. When when they had a child, they named the child Amar. Now Amar, he is similar in age to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam if not a little bit older. So when new Buddha had come in prophet who that come in, then Amar even heard from the people that there's a man in Makkah saying this and saying that and he just kept on hearing until some few days later, he said, No, man, why must I keep on hearing when I can go and get it from the source? So he decided, let me go and get it right from the source Subhana Allah. And so he visited Mohammed salatu salam in the house of Allah come, you know, you know, Darrell Arkham

00:26:31--> 00:26:44

was known as the house of knowledge, because that is where the knowledge was beamed from. So he went there, he asked Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam a few questions and he accepted Islam, America. He went home, he spoke to his mother Soumya.

00:26:46--> 00:26:49

Allah, she understood the message accepted Islam.

00:26:50--> 00:27:36

And then they spoke to the Father, he understood the message he accepted Islam, the first complete family to accept Islam, Subhana Allah or so many members of the same family, but this did not go down well, with Parisian zoom and above, normal Viola and the Buddha Hall and the others, they began to harm them more than they harmed anyone else. We will hear about what happened to beloved Nora baja the Allahu anhu. inshallah soon, but to inform you that these people went through so much more that the mother of America knew Yes, in sumaiya minchas became the first martyr in Islam. She was stabbed by a Buddha himself and she was harmed before being killed. She was persecuted to the degree

00:27:36--> 00:27:51

that they used to take him out into the desert heat, and they used to harm them so much dragging them telling them to disbelieve in Mohammed. They did not until she was martyred. And her husband was also martyred. rhodiola Yes.

00:27:52--> 00:28:41

May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant them all goodness, when Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam passed them on one occasion. He looked at them being harmed will lie we cannot describe what type of harm was inflicted upon his mother or the law. It was brutal. It was barbaric. It was shameless. May Allah protect us? May Allah grant us all goodness and protect us all. So Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam looked at him helplessly in the sense that the only one that can help us is Allah subhanho wa Taala. He says Subhan Allah sera for Inamori the common agenda by patients or family of yourself, for indeed, your appointed place is paradise, you will be achieving paradise from this we learned that they were

00:28:41--> 00:29:23

from amongst those who are already told that Paradise is yours, because we will meet in general what does that mean? That means you are going to be in paradise. So as much as we have the 10 who were told that you are from Paradise known as an Azure Alibaba sharina bilgin. We started our talks with them. They were a group of people, but they were not the only people. So why do we call them the 10? We call them the 10 because that was on one occasion, where Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam got up and said 10 names in a row one after the other you are from Paradise, you are from Paradise, you are from Paradise, you are from Paradise, saying 10 names in one instance, that those were known as the

00:29:23--> 00:29:41

people who were the 10 who would get entry into paradise, but there were others who are also told that you are from paradise on different occasions. These were from amongst those May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us. May He make us from amongst those who are in paradise as well. So my brothers and sisters,

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

this man I'm married, Maria said he struggled and he suffered, and he suffered so much after the death of his parents when he took part in the Battle of bundler. He was the only companion. He was the only companion who had his parents martyred by the people of Makkah, and now he was revived.

00:30:00--> 00:30:42

And retaliating and better the only companion who had come to better knowing that these people have killed my parents Subhan Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant him ease and goodness and us all May Allah grant him Jenna and us all. So a maribou Yassir, he was a man whom, when the people of Quraysh were harming him so much, they told him one day as they were harming him with severe harm, persecution, that we want you to praise our gods. So it is reported that he uttered the word in a way that they were happy that Okay, you've praised our gods. And the people who are Muslims at the time went to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to tell him that Amar has left Islam. So Muhammad Sallallahu

00:30:42--> 00:31:17

Sallam said no, he has not in his heart he has he man it is full of Eman. So when a mercy came Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam asked him what happened? He said, Oh messenger, I, I did not mean to say these words, but I was harmed so much. They told me to praise their gods. I ended up saying a word which made them happy. So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed verses because Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam asked him, What about your heart? He says My heart is very clear. My conscience is extremely clear. I'm a Muslim and I believe in Allah alone. So Allah revealed vs.

in him I

00:31:37--> 00:31:38

mean Allah.

00:31:40--> 00:32:24

Allah says, those who disbelieve after having believed they are the ones who will receive severe punishment besides those who have been forced to utter words when their hearts are full of Eman. They are the exception. So panela and from this we learn that if you are forced to do something or say something when your heart is actually not with it, you will be judged by Allah according to what is in your heart and not according to what your actions have been, depending on what that matter was. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all a lesson. This was a Sahabi It is reported that at the time of the Allahu anhu he was appointed, appointed as the governor or one of the governors of Kufa

00:32:24--> 00:33:00

and later on Armada militia taba the Allahu anhu replaced him with someone. Then the Allahu anhu asked him Oh, Amar, are you upset with me? Are you sad that I have replaced you with someone? He says, oh, Omar Abdullah Hata Oh ameerul momineen. I was even more sad when I was the governor because of responsibility. Now I'm a happy man Subhana Allah. May Allah grant us all goodness, it's a big responsibility. Those who are in positions of leadership and who lead correctly realize that it is more responsibility than an honor. May Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us goodness.

00:33:01--> 00:33:08

My brothers and sisters, it is sad to note that beyond the age of 90, a married new Yasser

00:33:10--> 00:33:52

died in the Battle of a Safin between the Muslims. We all know a Sufi into place. Alabama, Vitaly Brody Allahu anhu on one side, and the forces of Medallia Abby, Sophia and the others on the other side. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive all those who have taken part will lie if we look at that history, it brings tears in our eyes, and maribou yasir was the oldest of the lot according to some narrations almost 9495 years old rhodiola when he was a man whom the Prophet sallallahu wasallam had said, that he will be in Paradise by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And here he is being murdered and martyred and pillaged by people who are Muslims themselves. And I want to pause for a

00:33:52--> 00:34:36

moment again, to learn a lesson from this, my brothers and sisters today. Today too, we are struggling more at our own hands then we are at the hands of the enemy. If you were to take a list of countries where Muslims are being slaughtered today, you will find that places where the Muslims are being pillaged, where they are being killed at the hands of the Muslims are far more than places where they are being harmed by the enemy. And this brings us to the note of this evening brothers and sisters, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to assist our brothers and sisters in Gaza. Really as we are speaking, they are struggling. It brings tears to the eyes of Allah He it leaves us helpless

00:34:36--> 00:34:59

except for the fact that we have hope in the mercy of Allah. It happened to those before us and as much as Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was gonna be telling the family of yours your sovereign Allah said, For in memory the Kumul Jenna, we hope and pray that we too can bear witness that the people of Gaza May Allah forgive them And grant them Jenna to And may Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us

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

For our helplessness, there is hardly anything we could do sometimes. And even if those who could do things would do things, Allah subhanho wa Taala is in charge and in control. May Allah make it easy for those who are in position of acting to act in a way that the matter can be sorted out while he bleeds the heart. And I'm sure every one of us feels not only for those who are suffering in Russia, but if we were to draw a list, it would be endless to be honest with you. I was trying this evening to draw up a list of the places where the Muslims are struggling, believe me, I came up with more than 20 countries. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us is what do we learn from this fighting that

00:35:39--> 00:36:10

happened at that particular time? What do we learn from the fact that enemies made the Muslims fight in the name of Islam? My brothers and sisters, let that not happen to us. May Allah safeguard us and grant us the love for one another and the ability to stand up and respect one another. Even if we have differences it does not mean we need to kill one another. May Allah correct us and grant the safety was Allahu wa salam o barik. ala nabina, Muhammad Subhan Allah Subhana Allah home ob Hamdi, kenisha, to Allah, Allah Allah and that's not going to be unique.
