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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:04--> 00:00:48

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah, al anbiya wa l mursalin Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa been a woman tabea home, be a son in Elijah Medina bad. We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household, all his companions, we ask Allah to bless them all Subhana Allah to Allah, and to bless every single one of us. Brothers and sisters, a very young companion of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one who had already accepted him as an OB before seeing him sallallahu alayhi wasallam May Allah peace and blessings be upon them all. And as a

00:00:48--> 00:01:22

nomadic karate Allah when he was only 10 years old when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had entered Madina munawwara but let's listen to what happened before that. He was a young boy, his father had passed away under certain circumstances. And his mother was a well known believe from amongst those who believed in the early days when most abnormal Ravi Allahu anhu, was sent to Al Madina, munawwara so she was from Madina munawwara and he was born in El Madina, munawwara and as a nomadic hypno nada Ansari.

00:01:24--> 00:02:07

And this young boy, as he grew up, he only heard words of love from his mother about Muhammad salallahu alayhi wasallam and about Islam, and about how good Islamic teachings are, how beautiful Islamic teachings are and how they would result in his success. So she always praised Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So much so that from a very young age, and a signal Malik, he always told his friends that one day I want to just go to Makkah to meet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam you know, young boy is talking, they want to see their hero Subhana Allah, and they say, No, we will travel all the way to Mecca, and I want to go there, and I just want to meet Muhammad Sallallahu

00:02:08--> 00:02:51

sallam, because he used to get so happy talking about him, repeating whatever his mother was telling him to his own friends, Subhan Allah. And this was from a few years before the hegira, just a few years before the hegira young boy seven, eight years old, and this had started. So his mother, her name was a Roman sa bint mal Han or Allahumma. Isa bint mal Han, two ways of pronouncing it actually. But she was also known as almost Alain de la Hannah. She was a woman whose story is amazing. Perhaps one of the days we might dedicate some time for some of the female companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam as well. So, Anna signo Malik Ravi Allahu anhu, says when we

00:02:51--> 00:03:26

heard that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was about to enter Madina munawwara We were so excited. We were little children, and the children used to tell each other, Hey, he's arriving today. So we used to go to the outskirts and wait until the evening and then come back. These were just rumors. But they were so excited. They used to go back the next day, Hey, he's coming today. And every one of the children used to go out to the outskirts, and they used to watch and look and excited movement. They used to see little things. There he is there he is. And yet there was nothing happening and they would come back. And he says we got so much joy by doing this. Yet one day.

00:03:27--> 00:03:35

The men started saying today is the day that Mohammed salatu salam and Ababa Casa de la and is that they are coming.

00:03:36--> 00:04:14

So he knew this is the day because now the older people are talking up to now it was just the children. And we were all getting excited. He says we would go out in the day excited, come back in the evening. Sad to say another day is gone and he hasn't yet come. So that day they saw the men went to the outskirts, the boys from amongst the children rushed out as well. And the little girls and the women they went on to the sides of the paths and the tops of the roofs and so on the rooftops and they wanted to watch see Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam come through and Subhana Allah He came. And under Sidney Mallika, the Allahu anhu says, I tried to get a piece of my hero sallallahu

00:04:14--> 00:04:45

alayhi wa sallam, and he is the hero of every one of us. salallahu alayhi wasallam and when I saw him, I was so excited. It was the happiest day in my entire life. The happiest day in my life. I've never ever had a happier day than that, even though I was only 10 years old when this happened. And I was so excited because to me, my dream was fulfilled here is the man. We've heard so much about him, and I'm so fortunate to be able to see him. So what happened is something interesting.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

The people of from amongst the answer, we're coming to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam offering help and giving him certain things and helping in this way and that way in whatever way they could, but the mother of Anna Sydney Malik, she brought an a signal

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

elec with her as Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam now, you know he was settled a little bit in Madina munawwara and she came and says, Oh messenger, sallAllahu wasallam people are giving you things and so on, I have nothing to give you, I have nothing to give you. But I would like to give you my son and us even though Malik he was an orphan. Unless even nomadic I want to give this son to you, and let him serve you completely he will be your servant From this day on. And Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam felt the genuineness in the mother. Because obviously someone is not genuine, nothing like this would have happened. genuineness, the words she used the respect she had, and he looked at the

00:05:42--> 00:06:29

young boy, his eyes would twinkling basically, he was so excited. He was so happy, and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam knew that this young boy 10 years old is looking forward to serving. So he, you know, he passed his hand on the head of nrcb Malik rhodiola. And as a young boy, he smiled at him. He looked at him and he felt the warmth and unassuming the Mallika the Allahu anhu says, I felt so loved by Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and he says he accepted me as a servant. And I stayed with him up to the day he passed away. That was 10 whole years Subhanallah So what was the virtue of this man? Allah subhanho wa Taala allowed him to enter the company of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in a way

00:06:29--> 00:07:13

that nobody else had entered. He was with him every time of the day and the night he served him. He knew things about him that no one else knew. He knew his habits. He knew his innermost habits. And he knew the way he treated his family. He knew every single movement, you know, today, if you have someone serving you in your home, they watch you 24 seven, they know everything about you for them to say, hey, this person I work for is really a good person that is something grand and great. I hope and I pray that those who serve us can be from amongst those who bear witness for us and not against us. So Anna Sydney, Malik says, I noticed so many things in Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. And

00:07:13--> 00:07:59

I want to pause for a moment because this deep private life of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam had to come out to all of us. Allah subhanho wa Taala gave Anna Sydney Malik, an age that no other companion saw he passed away when he was aged 103 years old, and a sibling Malik so he might not have been the last companion to pass away. But he was definitely one who was given the oldest in a meaning the most in age. He was the oldest and in age when he passed away 103 years old. And yet when he joined Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he was only 10 years old. When Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam passed away. He was just over 20 years old Subhana Allah. So he says I noticed something unique. And

00:07:59--> 00:08:37

now these things that we get from Anna Sydney Malik, we will not find them from many more. Some of the things we get from him and this is why the companions they used to love Anna Sydney medical of the Allahu anhu they used to ask him or Anna's tell us something that nobody knows just you and Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, then he used to narrate to them a few things. And he did this for years on end. So panel up when anyone wanted to rejuvenate and relive the days that they had with Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam they would call Anna Sidney Malik and tell him about the Allah and tell us some of what happened and he would inform them. So he says, well, Allah has something unique. Whenever

00:08:37--> 00:09:06

anyone entered in the company or the presence of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he gave them so much importance that they would leave feeling that they are the closest to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and that happened to everyone who visited. That was a miracle of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam if you find someone visiting you, that you really love, you give them importance, but to be able to give similar importance to so many people is not something easy. So Anna Sydney, Malik says, well, la he was a man

00:09:07--> 00:09:51

who was very, very loving, very kind. He had a soft heart in the sense that he was so welcoming. He would forgive and he was the highest from amongst us in character and conduct. The way he treated. His family was unique. And as Sidney Malick says, voila, he I served him for 10 whole years from our Kalia ofin. To mama Carl Alicia in Sinatra who Lima Sonata. I served him for 10 whole years as a servant. Not one day, did he pass a comment that hurt me not once? Not once? Subhanallah he didn't say off off meaning. You know, if we look at someone, and we tell them, can you do this and they take five minutes too long, we would probably say, What do you think you're doing? Never did

00:09:51--> 00:10:00

Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam pass a negative comment. Never did he tell me when I did something. Why did you do it and why did you do it this way. And when I did not do something

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

Not once did he say, Why didn't you do this? He would do it himself with a smile. So behind Allah, Allah, Allah, Allahu anhu. He tells us once I was a young boy, and I was sent on an errand by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam go and do this. And I went, and I saw some youngsters of my age playing a game. So I joined them in playing. And in the interim, I forgot what I was told to do. So after a while, someone tapped me on my shoulder whilst I was playing, I look back and I saw Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he was smiling at me. Imagine what would we do to a servant, whom we sent in the morning to do something, and Subhana Allah, we go later on and find him playing games. And if we

00:10:41--> 00:11:23

were to tap him slightly, he probably diverted again, I'm dead. That's it. It's over. You know, I'm, I've lost my job, I'm fired. But Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam looked at him and says, ma is now known as his sweet version of the word anus. In the Arabic language, it is known as the surreal, which mean, which means to make a name such that it refers to the small version of the same. So if I were to say, for example, a balloon, which means the sun, and if I want to add love to it and make reference to someone who's small and cute, I would say boonie. So he would not call me Ebony. He would say, Yeah, boonie he would not call me and us he would say, Yeah, nice, you see, which means

00:11:23--> 00:11:55

it's a beautiful way of calling me and he used to call me so lovingly. I turned around, I looked at him. He says, Yeah, nice. Do you remember what I told you? He said, Yes, I'm going I'm going I'm going just now Don't worry, oh messenger sallallahu sallam, and he says he was smiling. According to one narration Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam went to do it himself. And according to another that was just a beautiful reminder. But all this was lesson for us. Today we have people who are serving us and Subhan Allah the way we treat them, let's revisit it. Otherwise what is the point of speaking about nsfx nomadic love your loved one?

00:11:57--> 00:12:41

He says well Allah He will la he mamasezz to Hassan Walla Walla Harry, Ron Eliana mean caffi Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he says, I have the opportunity of shaking Mohamed Salah salams hands so many times and I I've never felt anything whether it is silk or any soft material softer than the perm of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it was so soft and pleasant when he shook your hand you could feel so panela this was a miracle of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. Then he mentioned another miracle. He says well Allah Hema Shama to mysskin, Walla, Walla de Haan up Dr. Berman Araki, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says Allah He I have never smelt. I have never smelled

00:12:41--> 00:13:24

any perfume, Musk or Amber, or any other perfume, more beautiful incense than the perspiration of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his sweat Subhana Allah, it was such that just to smell it would give you a scent that was better than any perfume ever. And unassuming the Malik bears witness and so do other companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam bear witness. This was a miracle of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, Anna signo Malik Ravi Allahu, and he was from amongst those who learned, he watched, he saw he fulfilled and at the same time, he was taught things by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that no one else was taught because he was with him all the

00:13:24--> 00:14:11

time. And Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam knew that this message is going to go further, right up to the end of the oma, which means up to the time of the AMA, the end of time today, we are sitting 14 135 years later, and we are talking about the same qualities of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, where did we get them from? Well, I can tell you, if you look at the a hadith of Anna signo Malik Ravi Allahu anhu. They were at par with those of Abu hurayrah Ravi Allahu anhu, Abdullah Abner Omar and the others are the alarm and on Jimmy and he narrated so many a hadith that the narrator's make mention of 2280 Hadith quite easily from those 180 agreed upon by both Bukhari and Muslim Rahim Allah and

00:14:11--> 00:14:54

from amongst those 80 of those Buhari has them separately from Muslim and another 90 Muslim has separately from Buhari so if you were to add those three figures, those are just in the Sahih hain meaning in the two most powerful books after the Quran, where Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness, and as you know, Malik no nada. He was to receive such a high status because his mother was a concerned Muslim. So it brings us back to the upbringing that is given by a mother in the home while law what she shows a keen interest in from the early ages of her children, so the children will show similar interests May Allah subhanahu wa taala help our mothers and fathers and May Allah

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

subhanahu wa taala help us as mothers and fathers to be exemplary to our own children.

00:15:00--> 00:15:44

She had the love, and it was passed through to her son. And as a result, the sun Bay became known as one of the greatest of the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had the honor of serving Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam for 10 years, so much so that later on Subhan Allah, later on the companions and the others in the Tabby in, he had 1000s of students. If you look at the list of students of nsep Malik are the 11 because he lived so long and he traveled far and wide, you would find he has so many students, It is reported that more than any other of the companions of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam were the students of NSF nomadic Allah and he lived up to the age of 103. And he

00:15:44--> 00:16:26

died in the year 93, hegira 93 years after the hegira and he was the last to die or to pass away from amongst those who witnessed both cublas you know what that means? That means when the beast salatu salam arrived in Madina, munawwara he was a young boy, they used to face Jerusalem in prayer, and after that, it shifted to Mecca. He witnessed both of those, and he was the last from amongst witness both of those scribblers to pass away. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a decent life. And may He make us people whom, when others speak of us after we've died, at least they say good words and may they say Rama to Allah, Allah, Allah have mercy on him.

00:16:27--> 00:17:09

Now, where did nsmt Malik get this from? whilst he was serving Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he received a lot of art from him. He received a lot of supplication for him, one of the main supplications that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam made for him. Allahu Marzocco Malinois, Wallah da wa barik ala, Oh Allah grant him wealth because this man is in my service. Give him well people are worried about money. Here is Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam saying Oh Allah, give this young boy wealth and give him children Subhana Allah and give him blessings in what you have given him. He was the richest from the unsolved after some time later on at the time of Abu Bakr and Omar Abdullah whom he

00:17:09--> 00:17:50

was known as the richest from the answer a little bit later, he became the richest from amongst the answer, the answer meaning those of Madina, munawwara probably Allah and Jimmy and, and guess what that do is that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam made for children for Anna Sydney Malik, he says himself, that my children, grandchildren and my progeny in my life, I have seen more than 100 of them. So panela and us even know Malika Viola and young boy serving Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam look at the dua, my brothers and sisters make dua for your children, supplicate ask Allah for your children and the children of others. And for one another to do not underestimate the power of a prayer. Here was

00:17:50--> 00:18:04

a man, if we today were to put our children in the service of Islam, we would probably say, Well, he's gonna live a pauper and die a pauper. Because when you serve Islam, you cannot even afford to buy a proton. Oh, Akbar, May Allah forgive us.

00:18:05--> 00:18:44

But at the same time, we don't understand the owner of sustenance is Allah you serve him? And believe me, it does not mean you divorce yourself from the worldly life. No, but it does mean that Allah will provide for you. And it depends what you want. If we become people who are quite greedy and so on. Perhaps we will continue running behind this worldly life. And it continues running faster than us. We never catch it up until we fall into the pit, known as the grave. Allahu Akbar. May Allah subhanho wa Taala not do that to us. So let's listen to some of the advice of Anna Sydney Malik and before we get there, he says, Well Allah He I served Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

for 10 years. He never ever slept me. Number one. He never swore me. Number two. He never frowned at me. Imagine someone serving you. I was sitting and reading this and thinking, How do I treat those who work with me or for me? who served me? Have I ever found them? If I have where am I with the tsunami of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam perfect example. lacava karnala confy rasulillah

00:19:14--> 00:19:17

as Anna Lima Can I Oh,

00:19:20--> 00:19:44

he was a con la casa de la. Indeed you have a perfect example in the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the person of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for those who remember Allah for those who are looking forward to the meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Those who are looking forward for the hereafter. There is an example in Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam here he is no swear words to those who worked for him.

00:19:45--> 00:20:00

Never did he frown never did he slept. And he taught me so much. He told me that when you see something here, you do not go and relate it to others. Now we learn this in our houses, sometimes our own children, family members.

00:20:00--> 00:20:33

As a spouse, something happens in your home, you find your mother first thing, Mom, this is what happened. So your mother is controlling your home by remote control, you know without batteries also Mashallah. And it works. May Allah protect us, you have a problem, hold it to yourself, you are an adult. It depends how serious the matter is. If it is a very serious matter, you have every right to seek assistance, but don't just phone those or contact those whom emotionally, they may give you advice that is detrimental for you. A lot of us as soon as someone complains, hey, my husband did this, or my wife did this. They say go home, go home. That's why the marriages are breaking.

00:20:33--> 00:21:00

Everyone has some form of difficulty sometimes try and make it work, see what is the matter, you know, address it, let's address it in a humane way and so on. Anyway, this is just a few. This is just a little bit of advice that I'm perhaps adding here. But learning from Anna Sydney Malik Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam told him certain things you don't know, right? You don't just go out and say oh, this is what happened and you start describing things that obviously would not be of any relevance to anyone outside.

00:21:01--> 00:21:30

But Subhan Allah, whatever there was to be given to us was given by NSF mnemonic of your level. And so he says, Subhana Allah. One day, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told me Yeah, punia Oh, my beloved Son, imagine calling him Oh, my son, oh, my son, if you can get up in the morning and sleep in the evening, without single ill feeling in your heart for your brethren, then do that. If you do that, you will be following my path, my sooner

00:21:32--> 00:22:10

that means clean your heart every morning and evening. Take out hatred, jealousy and whatever you have from your heart for your brethren. It's a teaching of Mohammed salatu salam, and he says, If you follow my sooner, that means you love me. And if you love me, you will be in paradise with me Subhana Allah. So Allah cinematically alojado says on one occasion, I even told him or messenger, I will come and see you in the mirror. Will you intercede on my behalf? Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam says you will find me you will find me either here or there mentioning different places on the day of piano, either you will find me by the scales or you will find me by the bridge or you will find

00:22:10--> 00:22:53

me by the how old which is the pond. And believe me and a Sidney Malik later used to say when I see him, I will tell him or messenger. This is your small servant own as I am here, begging that you intercede on my behalf Subhana Allah, may Allah grant us all the intercession of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and may He allow us all a drink from the house. So this is the men and a Sidney Malik. He says, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told me when you enter your home, greet with Assalamu alaykum your family and greet them often. It is a means of Baraka for you and your family. a means of blessing. A lot of us leave home, no one knows we've left home, we come back, no one knows we came back, get

00:22:53--> 00:23:05

into the habit of saying Assalamualaikum even before you go to decline when you get up in the morning, greet your family members. It is Baraka a teaching that we were taught from Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam brought by Anna Sydney Malika Viola and

00:23:06--> 00:23:09

then Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Subhan Allah had

00:23:10--> 00:23:53

given this man so much like we said a few moments ago, he was a gifted person so gifted, that he made mention of certain things in his life. He says, The happiest day in my life was the day that I met Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and the saddest day in my life was the day that he passed away. The first time I saw him happiest day, the last time I saw him the saddest day Subhan Allah, and he lived for many years and Subhan Allah He served the Muslim in and at the same time, he has so many a hadith that he narrated of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he had an issue with one of the governors of Madina munawwara at one time, he whose name was hijab, news, photography, and he wrote a letter.

00:23:54--> 00:24:19

Instead of responding to a judge of the use of a coffee. He wrote a letter to the mural, meaning at the time who was Abdulmalik number one, Rahim Allah complaining, and immediately the response came to hijab news of a coffee who apologized to enter Sydney Malik, but nsep numerical the Allahu anhu left for bussola and he passed away in bussola, like we said, in the 93rd, year of hegira, at the age of 103, may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all.

00:24:20--> 00:24:59

Brothers and sisters, we have another beautiful story that will we will be rendering this evening, a companion who is not very well known. His name is not amongst the top names of the companions. But his story is one of the most touching stories we will have. by the name of Syed Ebony Amir al Juma he wrote the Allahu Allah. What is his story? He says I was a young man in Makkah. And after the Battle of butter, I noticed the people of Quraysh had got hold of a certain companion of Mohammed salatu salam by the name of Habib in the ID of the Allahu Allah. And I was a young boy in Mecca, not yet a Muslim

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

This was after the Battle of butter. And they were dragging him and they took him to tell him. Tell him today is where Masjid Arusha is or must be the Rama they call it. It's a place known as the name just on the outskirts of the Haram in Makkah, so he says they were dragging him, they were beating him and they were about to execute him. They had a little crucifix, which they wanted to hang him on and so on. And they said, We are going to kill this man because of who has been killed in the Battle of butter. And yet Whoa, babe. Now it was an innocent man. The only sin he committed was he was a follower of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, so sorry dibny Amira Juma? He says, I was watching. I was a

00:25:39--> 00:25:40

young man.

00:25:41--> 00:26:26

And I saw as they beating him up, he asked him one question, he says, look, before you hang me before you execute me, can I read two units of prayer to rock out of prayer? They said, Okay. So he washed with a bit of water and saved says at the amateur Juma, he says, we were all watching him, and he faced the Qibla. And he started his Salah, and he read a beautiful Salah without any worry, like, nobody's gonna beat him up ever. And so he took his time He finished the Salah, and he looks at the people of Croatia, who are now ready with their knives, their knives, and the axes and whatever. And he looked at them and said, You know, I would have lengthened my prayer. Had I not

00:26:26--> 00:27:07

been worried that you would start saying this man is scared of death, because it is not death that I am scared of. It's the way I die. Subhana Allah the way I die, meaning he wants Allah to be pleased with him. That's why he read his Salah. Anyway, the people were shocked this man, they only told him this believe in Mohammed, he says no, no ways. So they started cutting up his organs whilst he was alive now to Billa. Men, women, everyone involved in this and say it says I was in the forefront. I didn't engage in it. But just when they were about to hang him Finally, when he was about to die, I heard him say a few words. They asked him a question, wouldn't you like Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam

00:27:07--> 00:27:52

to be in your place? And he said, voila, he, no matter what you do to me, and no matter what happens to me, I would not allow even a thorn to prick Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. And this side of Mohammed says I was shocked. This man loves the other men so much. There must be something about it. And he says, as he was dying, he says Allahumma Shimada walk to loomba wala ohada Oh Allah. It's a dog that was made by Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam previously as well. And this was repeated here by Kobe befinner id are the Allahu anhu saying Oh Allah, gather all of these punish all of them and don't leave even one of them for what they are doing. Who are those the people of koresh.

00:27:53--> 00:28:36

So, this man say the army says the story was over the people of Quraysh went back, they killed the man he was gone, but I couldn't sleep. When I stand up, I see this man Whoa, baby ID in front of me. When I sleep, I dream of him. I have nightmares I get up. When I'm walking. I remember his words. And it had asked me so much. And I thought to myself, that this cannot be something simple, there is some deep belief behind this, what is it? The love that He has for his religion must be meaning that this religion has something deep in it. Because if people had a slight doubt in their belief, they would have given it up. And the love he has for this man, he can only be a messenger because if it

00:28:36--> 00:29:14

was any ordinary person, even a father would not do this for the Son and the son would not do this for the Father. SubhanAllah so he says, I started asking myself there must be something from the heavens that you know that is that has come and one day I got up because I could not take all these thoughts anymore. And I stood in front of Qureshi and told him Oh Quraysh I free myself from what you did to have a banner ad some time back and I am not a part of you anymore. The idols you are worshipping are wrong. I am going to Medina and I accept the message of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. This was our man say he didn't amateur Juma he, it shook him to the core. He went to El Madina

00:29:14--> 00:29:23

munawwara and Mashallah he spent time there. It is reported that he took part in the Battle of hiber and whatever happened thereafter. Then, here comes his story.

00:29:24--> 00:29:57

He lived during the time of Abu Bakar a study called the Allahu anhu and Omar Alfaro called the Allahu anhu. And he used to advise them he told Bob one day, Omar, be careful of how you treat your people and be careful you have been made an amine, you need to make sure that you fulfill your responsibilities and so on. They used to know him as a very pious man who was not interested in the worldly material life. So one day, Amara hapa calls him and says, You know what? I want to appoint you as the governor of hemps hims is in Syria today. May Allah grant peace and stability in all the Muslim lands I mean,

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

so this man says no, I will

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

will not be the governor of hims say that Namah Juma here. So Omar Bill hottub says,

00:30:06--> 00:30:45

You people appointed me as an Amir now you don't want to support me and you don't want to do what I'm telling you to do. So he decided okay, let me go to hims. So Mr. Catalano says okay, we're going to send you a monthly stipend, a salary, he says, I don't need a salary, I am a person whom whatever I have is enough. If you give me something is going to be excess. Rather you leave it in baitul mal, you know, with the wealth of the Muslims and give it to the poor, so he refused to take anything. So what happened is, after some time Subhana Allah, Omar Abdullah satara, the Allahu anhu met a few people from hymns. And he told them, we want you to write the names of the poorest of people from

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

amongst you, so that perhaps we can send them some wealth. So the people of him started writing names and the names came to Allah and and from amongst them, he saw Sayyidina Muhammad Al Juma he,

00:30:57--> 00:30:58

he said, Who is this ad been added.

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

So they said he is the governor. What he is the governor, his name is from amongst the poorest of the lot. Yes. So immediately,

00:31:09--> 00:31:23

who sent him 1000 gold coins. And in the end wrote a note for him, sent it to him. It got to him. In Him Subhan Allah, something worth making mention of sorry, dibner amateur drama hero, viola one.

00:31:24--> 00:31:33

When he saw the note and the coins, he said in alila, he were in la hora June. So his wife tells him did the Amir pass away? No, something worse than that.

00:31:35--> 00:31:53

So his wife says, Did the Muslims losing battle? No, something worse than that. So the wife says, Well, what has happened? He says, materialism has entered my life in order to destroy my hereafter. SubhanAllah. She did not know about the coins yet. So she said, Well, why don't you get rid of it?

00:31:54--> 00:32:32

Now he looks at it and says, will you help me get rid of it? She says, by all means. So then he said, Yes, the 1000 coins. And she looked at it. And she said, Well, now I have to help him because you know, Subhanallah he was a man. Well, Ah, here we will cry when we hear the next part of his story. He was a man who served his family so much that we have to learn a lesson from it. We think we're a big deal CEOs of companies and so on. We come home and give instruction listen to what the governor of his deep. Anyway, he put that money into little little pouches. And he distributed amongst the poor in hymns, so Han Allah, then, Omar, Allahu anhu, came up to a sham in the 15th year

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

of his era, and it is reported that again, he went he went to hymns and so on some parts of a sham.

00:32:39--> 00:33:14

And he asked the people of hymns, how is your halifa? How is your Amir that the one I sent to you? How is he? So they complained a lot. So he he decided to call sided Mohammed adjumani. The people have complaints about you. And the people were seated. And he brought this man in front of them. He was a very calm, collected men. So ameerul momineen says, right, what are your complaints? They mentioned four things. Point number one, this man does not come out to us until late in the morning. You know, when the sun is almost in its zenith? That's when they that's when he comes out.

00:33:16--> 00:33:22

Meaning late in the morning, he doesn't come out early. complaint number one. So Amaro de la mano says,

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

oh, sorry

00:33:25--> 00:33:29

about the alarm. And what do you have to say? He says, Oh, I mean,

00:33:30--> 00:33:47

I don't have a servant at home. So every morning, I cook the food, and I make sure that I bake the bread. And I make sure that I've done everything in the house. Then I make my boo boo. And then I come out to see the people

00:33:49--> 00:34:24

are lucky. They were stunned. They were shocked because even the poor of the lot, they didn't cook on their own. This man used to cook for his family and for everyone else. And he was the governor of hims say he didn't Ramadan. Juma. He probably Allah. And so Amara hottub looked at him and said, What's the other complaint you have? They said the second complaint is at night. He doesn't respond when we have a problem at night. We knock his door he never answers his door. So say Amina Juma. He says, well, Omar, I don't want to disclose what I do. But I just want you to say I just want you to know that the day is for my people, and the night is for Allah.

00:34:25--> 00:34:58

Which means the man is in prayer. What do you want him to do? someone knocks you know today we ring the phone someone doesn't answer we get so irritated. We think they are ignoring us. We start a war in fact, we stopped talking to them for the rest of our lives without knowing the man was probably in the loo sorry, not the loo because nowadays they answer the toilet even in the loo May Allah grant us forgiveness will lie. What bad habits do we have? So this was sorry, didn't Amira Juma? He so he looked at them and said, What's your next complaint? They said, well, ah he this man, one or two days of the month. He just doesn't come out at all.

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

So say the melodrama he says, you know,

00:35:04--> 00:35:31

I've only got one pair of clothes and that's what I'm wearing here. So one of the days I need to wash the clothing, so I wash it, and then I have to wait until it dries. So panela when it dries, then I can wear it and by that time It's evening, so I come out the next day Subhan Allah, they were stunned, completely taken aback the people of hims And what happened is, what is your next complaint or people? So the last complaint they said, Sometimes this man,

00:35:32--> 00:36:12

he loses concentration whilst we talking to him. And it's as though He's unconscious for a little while. Then he gains consciousness and he asks us what we said. And this being our governor, is something that is wrong with this man. So that he asked him now manager Juma. Hey, that what is your answer for this? He says, well, ah, he Omar. I can never forget a certain day in my life, when one of the companions of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam by the name of obey the idea of the Allahu Akbar was killed in front of me in courage. And he described the whole story. I'm not going to repeat it here because I've just said it now. And Omar katabi, Allahu anhu, was in tears and the Sahaba were

00:36:12--> 00:36:53

in tears and the people of English were in tears. He says, well, ah, he I worry all the time I was with him. Why didn't I help him? I wonder if Allah will forgive me for that day when I allowed one of the companions to be martyred in front of me. And that was Habib, the idea of your loved one. And Subhana Allah, this was the men this was the men sorry dibny Amira Juma hero de la and we're talking about Omar Abu Dhabi. Allahu anhu hugged him, they cried. And later on and Omar Abu Qatada, the Allahu anhu sent him another 1000 coins. And this time, his wife said, Alhamdulillah, we've got 1000 coins, you no longer need to work, nor do I, we can employ someone. So he says, Oh, my beloved wife,

00:36:53--> 00:37:28

why don't we do something even better than that? So she says, What is it? He says, Let us distribute this wealth to those who needed more than us and he definitely did that. They agreed and that's what they did. This was the man it was worth making mention of him. We have so much lesson from this men, the men, the women and the children of this oma May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless these heroes of ours. This evening. We spoke about two of them and a Sydney medical of your loved one and say he didn't know Juma Allah And may Allah be pleased with them and us all was Allah Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhana Allah Subhana Allah home ob Hamdi Khanna, Chateau La Ilaha Illa
