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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:05--> 00:00:46

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah Shafi Lambie evil mursaleen Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sahbihi Norman Tebbit son, 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, may Allah bless them all. May He bless every single one of us, may he protect us from all evil, May He grant us every form of goodness ourselves, our offspring, humanity at large May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all, brothers and sisters. This evening, we will be going through the lives of two of the companions of Muhammad sallallahu

00:00:46--> 00:01:08

alayhi wasallam. The first is atomic dad, ignore amor Ignace, Allah, Allah, and he was a man who has a unique history when he was young, his father, or in fact, before he was born, his father known as amrev, North Alabama, who was living in an area or from amongst the tribe of Basra.

00:01:09--> 00:01:54

He was living in an area where he had committed a crime Subhanallah and the crime was, he made it someone. So this person's father happened to murder someone and had to run away, he ran away, fearing that perhaps they might get hold of me and they might punish me, penalize me and so on. And he ran away to Hydra mode. Hydra mode is an area in Yemen. So in hover mode, he stayed there for a while he married someone from hover mode, and he had a son, and the son was named olmec dad. And this is the person who later became a companion of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, I'll make that it is reported that he looked just like his father. He was very dark in complexion. And at the same time,

00:01:54--> 00:01:55

he was

00:01:56--> 00:02:42

a person who was very hot blooded, so to speak temperamental. And as he grew up, he had a few disputes with some of the people in his remote. One of them was an elderly man, and they happen to fight with each other, or he swiped him with a sword and cut part of his leg. So I'll make that just like his father ran away from the remote. And where did he go? He ran to Makkah, Tomoko Rama, because he knew Makkah was considered a city. And it was a very big city at the time, compared to the other cities in the region. So when he went to Mecca, he realized that it's going to be quite difficult in Makkah, because the people are very ignorant in Mecca, they fight with each other, they

00:02:42--> 00:03:01

harm those whom they don't know. They usurp the wealth of those who are weak, and they happen to enslave people sometimes whom they don't know. And so many things are happening that are disastrous at the same time, he used to question the worshipping of the idols that was occurring in muckety muck karma. And they'll make that even

00:03:03--> 00:03:55

as a young boy, decided, or he was a young man, so to speak, he decided to strike a deal with one of the people in Makkah, that if anything happens to me, you will protect me. So who was this man? His name was an ESA did not do booth he was from Missouri, in muckety muck karma, the zuri tribe. So I'll make that a banner ama became so close to this man as to why the NAB dia booth, that one day is what decided to inform Quraysh that this young man who is under my protection, here in Quraysh, he has qualities that are very high, he is brave, they used to look at bravery. If a person was brave, they loved him, you know, if he could dare the world, they loved him because of bravery. So unless

00:03:55--> 00:04:34

what says, I declare that he is my son from this day, and when I die, he will inherit me and if he dies, I will inherit him. Now this was common amongst the Arabs, they used to declare this link that did not exist. It was a non existent link, but they declared it in order to show how deeply they loved someone. So from that day, a lot of people began to call him I'll make that stupid. And I'm sure even in some of the books, it says, I'll make that password rhodiola and because of his link with the last word of NAB, Dr. Ruth, but the truth is, he remains I'll make that a panorama even with Alibaba

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

rhodiola Han. So at that time, he was a person who began to hear from some of the fortune tellers as well as some of the religious men from amongst the Jews and the Christians. When he used to travel he heard from from them, they said, It is about time that a messenger is coming in muckety muck Rama. It is about time that a messenger will come and perhaps he will be from Makkah, so

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

Admit that was thinking to himself that I hope I can meet this messenger whoever he is. And so what happened is one day when he heard about Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he knew immediately immediately, that you know what? This has to be the man. And it has to be true. I've heard it from so many people. And I've heard it from religious people, that this messenger is going to come and if he is a messenger, his character and conduct is exemplary. And nobody spoke ill of him before he declared that he was the messenger. It is only after he declared he was a messenger that people said he was a madman, he was a magician, and so on. So I'll make that Dibble as what was one of the first 10 to

00:05:38--> 00:06:20

accept Islam. Some say number seven, but some say, top 10 which means right at the beginning, he accepted Islam. And then he went to tell his people or the people of Quraysh, who were protecting him that you know what, I believe in Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and I believe that Allah is one and these idols will do nothing, no harm, no good, and we should not be worshipping idols, and I refuse to engage in what you've been engaging in. And From today on, I follow this new faith and new religion, and immediately they began to persecute him just like the others. So his name join the names of kebab, no, Dorothea Lohan and the others like So hey, baru Mirabella, and Marina, Sylvia

00:06:20--> 00:07:03

Lohan and the others may Allah subhanho, wa Taala, grant us all protection, and may He make us from those who are always at ease with what we know is the truth from Allah subhanho wa Taala without anyone snatching it away from us. So we'll make that as what it is reported that in the early days, he sought to marry he wanted to get married. But he had two or three problems. One was his father had committed a crime and run away from somewhere to have remote, then he had committed a crime himself and run away. And at the same time, he had no family. And on top of that, he was big. He was a very big man, extremely dark in complexion, looking very different to the others. So no one wanted

00:07:03--> 00:07:47

to give him their daughters. And then he accepted Islam. And the same thing happened but because he was involved in learning the Quran and learning the deen and his life was transformed. He was not really bothered about being married at the time. However, when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam made the hijra he was unable to make the hegira because of persecution initially, so it was only after Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam made the hegira to Madina, munawwara Alameda de la barra de la Han was one of the last who managed to make the hedgerows, he hatched a plan and he made the hegira just like we heard, so hey, boo boo, see Nana Rumi did. So when he arrived in Madina, munawwara the

00:07:47--> 00:08:30

Prophet salallahu Salam was very, very happy, delighted to see al MC dad, because he showed a keen interest in learning the deen, very keen, as much as his background was what it was, but he was, he became such a good man, a beautiful person. And he used to listen very carefully. He had really he had deep rooted love for Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he showed it. So when Mohammed salatu salam saw him, he was extremely delighted and told him, you know, what, you can be from amongst the group who stay with me, and there was a small group of companions at one stage who stayed with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, some narration say groups of 10. So the 10 that

00:08:30--> 00:09:14

stayed with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for a while in Madina munawwara One of them was olmec daddy Mama. Now he says something unique happened, a miracle occurred. What was the miracle? He says one day, we had gone out and we came back, three of us came back to the house of Muhammad Salallahu alaihe salam where we were staying. And he says, We entered the house. And the little you know, the room where they were. And every day they would be a bit of milk that would be left for us to drink. And on that day, there was milk that was left for us to drink the three of us who entered. I was very hungry. He says I was thirsty and hungry. So my two friends from the companions, they

00:09:14--> 00:09:52

drank their Shea. And they went to sleep and I drank my share, but I could not sleep because I was still very hungry. And I looked at the shape of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he had not yet come back to the house. He was still out. Perhaps he was in the masjid or elsewhere. So I thought to myself, you know what? I'm sure he will get something perhaps you will have something where he is someone will offer him he will drink. He says shaytan came to me. And shaytan tells me Why don't you just drink his shake. Come on. He's the Nabhi of Allah he's going to get and he says Chopin continued to encourage me until I drank it. So he says I drank the chair of Muhammad

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

Sallallahu Sallam then shavon comes back to me and makes me regret. And my brothers and sisters, this is what shaytan does. He makes he encountered

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

just asked to do bad. Have you ever thought of something interesting? When we do something bad? Allah has blessed us in a way that we can turn back to Allah by blaming shape man. Have you thought of that? So if I fight with you for example, I can come back to and say brother that was Satan I'm very sorry what I did some Han Allah Have you heard that? It's a nice way of apologizing but the reality is, if we do not apologize we become the devil's ourselves. And if we don't turn back to Allah we become devils. And this is why Allah says even inshallah tunas mean Elgin at one speaking of the devils from Jim kind, and the devils of mankind, and Allah has said this in other places in

00:10:42--> 00:10:42

the Quran,

00:10:43--> 00:10:48

Allahu Akbar. So this is why it's important for us to know that

00:10:49--> 00:11:30

learn a lesson from Alameda de amor de la Viola and where he says shavon made me do this. And as soon as I did it, he now makes me say, you know what, that was the messengers MOOC. Now, you're going to have problems, this is going to happen. Now. You'd better run away, you'd better do this, you'd better do that. So many other thoughts and ideas. Remember one thing, regret, a sign of regret when you commit a sin is a sign of your belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you regret, it means you believe in Allah. But a sign of regret, which is actually leading to more sin is not a sign of Eman. For example, a person tells a lie, then they regret it, when they regret it, and they stopped

00:11:30--> 00:11:45

lying. That is a sign of emotion and belief. But when they regret it, and it makes them say more lies, it is a sign that the devil is getting hold of you even further. So I'll make that even more. He says, I thought to myself, what should I do, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has

00:11:46--> 00:12:28

three goats that were in the house or that were belonging to them. And he said, perhaps I can cut one of them and prepare a meal so that he can have but at the same time, he says, I pretended to sleep, thinking so many thoughts. And next thing Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam knocked the door and he walked in. He had a habit of seeking permission as he walked in, because in case someone might have been seated, you know, in a position where they might be shy, to have to see Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in that position and so on. So when he entered he had a habit of greeting in a way that those who were sleeping were not disturbed, and those who are awake, heard it. So he says, I heard it. And

00:12:28--> 00:12:41

I knew Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is back now What to do? So he looked at his container, and he saw someone had drank his milk. So Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam raises his hands and makes it. He says, Allahu

00:12:42--> 00:13:23

Akbar Mani was the man's attorney, oh, Allah, feed the one who feeds me and quench the thirst of he who quenches my thirst. This is a asuna of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. So when that happened, admit that he got up and Subhanallah he was excited. He said, No, let me be from amongst those who feed Mohammed Salah Salam tonight so that I can be fed and quenched by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So he got up and he decided, Okay, here's the knife. Let me go and see which one of those three goats is the biggest. And I'll cut it and I'll cook it quickly for Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. Now, obviously, he thought to himself, wait, we are milking these goats to have the milk from them. What's going to

00:13:23--> 00:13:41

happen if I cut it? And number two is if you cut it, you need the permission of the owner, don't you? So at the same time, as he is thinking he notices the others of that goat or the goats had been fooled with milk, although they will move just a little bit earlier. So that was a miracle. So he says Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam

00:13:42--> 00:14:03

gave him a utensil. And he called for the goats and he milked that particular goat. So much milk came from it, that Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam drank, and they'll make the diviner Ammar drank, and Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam drank again. And we'll make that even more drank again. It'll be a lot more fun. And then

00:14:04--> 00:14:43

he tells Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam the story because obviously now Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam asked him What's wrong, what's happening here, you know, so he says, This is the story, this is what occurred. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him Allah, He, even if you had got up those friends of yours to drink milk, more milk, it would have been sufficient for all of us. So panela this was a miracle of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and this used to happen very often to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, even prior to Prophethood. From the time he was born, salallahu alayhi wasallam when he went with haleema, to Saudi Arabia to a place known as badea to Benny sad, in order to be

00:14:43--> 00:15:00

circled there, on the way there, you find the animals that were unwell, they were healed automatically. And when they went there, there was a lot of blessings in the food and in the produce of that particular area. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us even a little bit of

00:15:00--> 00:15:32

Baraka from this we actually learn that sustenance is in the hands of Allah. We do not need to steal in order to feed ourselves because Allah will provide for us, but we should never be greedy at the same time. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us, so he wanted to get married. Now this was after he was a Muslim in Madina munawwara so he went to one of the companions of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. In some narrations, a name is mentioned, in some narrations, a main name is not mentioned the name of Abdurrahman, viola, and he's made mention of where he asked him.

00:15:33--> 00:16:00

Abdul Rahman asks the ultimate daddy Nam rhodiola. And that why don't you get married? He says, Well, why don't you get me married to your daughter? Subhan Allah, what a beautiful question. You are really concerned about me getting married, getting married to your daughter. So I'm sorry, I'm gonna manage now for the Allahu anhu immediately he says look, you know what I cannot get you married to my daughter. Well, he went to Mohammed salatu salam and complained that look.

00:16:01--> 00:16:32

I'm the Romani but now I have asked me a question. When I asked him to marry me to his daughter. He refused. And he was quite upset. So Mohammed Salah Salaam says, wouldn't like Wouldn't you like me? To be from amongst your in laws? Meaning Wouldn't you like it if I made you my own son in law? And what was meant here is related to me. related to me through marriage, he said yes, or messenger. Why not? So Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam got him married to his cousin. And her name was

00:16:33--> 00:17:19

Baba Binti Zubair Ibn Abdul muttalib radi Allahu Allah. So he was so happy and he used to say, look, no one got me married to their relatives, but Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam got me married to his own cousin. And now I have become a part of the family by being in laws to that family sallallahu alayhi wa sallam melas peace and blessings be upon Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, it is reported in the Battle of butter. He was the man whom, if you recall, they did not go to attack an army, but rather they went to get the caravan of Abu sufian, which was coming back from a sham with all the property and the wealth, which was stolen from Quraysh they had sorry, it was stolen from the Muslims by koresh

00:17:19--> 00:17:59

and taken to a sham to deal in. And when they came back with those profits, this is when the muslimeen said that let us go and get hold of the caravan because as it is, it belongs to us. So I'll make that even though Amar'e was one of them who had a horse. He was one of the only ones who actually had a horse and they went out some duration say they were three horses on the day of battle, and some say there was only one, but I'll make that ama was one of them. They went out first to get the caravan. And then Abu sufian had diverted if we know the story of the Battle of battle, Abu sufian diverted and the Muslims followed until they got to the place of battle. And Muhammad

00:17:59--> 00:18:34

Sallallahu Sallam asked his companions What should we do? So he asked him about Casa de Cali, Allahu anhu. He asked me to blah, blah, blah. And then he asked some other companions from amongst them was olmeca dad, a brahma rhodiola. And so I'll make that says, Oh Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and this is recorded in history. We will not tell you that which the People of the Book had told the Prophet Moses May peace be upon him, that go You and your Lord, we are sitting back the two of you can go and fight. We will tell you that you go and we are with you. Whatever you tell us to do, even if you tell us

00:18:35--> 00:19:11

to go behind you as you are going across the sea, we will follow you across the same sea. He says there is nothing that you instruct us today that we will not do. And he spoke so well that he encouraged all the companions and Mohammed salatu salam was very happy. And this is when they made the decision that let's go and we will tackle these people in butter and Subhana Allah, it was a battle that the Muslim men had won against all odds. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless these companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and a very interesting story at the time of a man of near founder of the Allahu and it is reported that

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

a man metal method number

00:19:15--> 00:19:58

one, and looked at him and said, I'd love to look into your eyes, because your eyes are the eyes that looked at Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and I really love to look at these eyes and I wish that I was from amongst those who had seen Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam now if we heard someone say that we would say Oh, Mashallah, I wish to I wish so to listen to the answer of almeyda diploma. He says, well, Allah He thank Allah that today you are a believer. Listen to this, because if you were there at the time of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam just to see him. There were so many people who saw him but they are now thrown into jahannam they are thrown into Hellfire, the likes of

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

Abu Jamal and the others. They see

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

him. But it was such a big test at the time to follow the instruction. And to be from amongst those who are Muslim, it was not easy. We were persecuted, we were harmed. So thank Allah that at least you were born and you are a Muslim and you are a believer today. But don't come and say I wish that I was from amongst those who saw him because you don't know if you saw him which side you would have died on. Now this was a shock, because it is something looking at something from a totally different angle. And it brings us a lot of goodness to say let's thank Allah for he man. I know it is correct for us to wish that we would have been there. But who knows from amongst the companions, Allah chose

00:20:40--> 00:21:18

these companions because they had one main quality in them. And that was they surrendered to the instruction of Allah and His messenger. with us. Someone tells us brother, this is haram we'll say what do you think it's okay, it's fine, but you don't know. Someone says Brother, don't do this. This is no no, I'm still not ready to go for Hajj, I can continue singing until I go for Hajj. That's the attitude. So one wonders if we were Sahaba what would have happened? So thank Allah that at least we are here today. But we have a lesson to learn from this. So this man I look at that metadata. He passed away some narration say he was killed by his own servant, a servant of his and

00:21:18--> 00:21:32

he died in the year 33 hijiri. Whilst he was approximately 73 years old, in an area known as aljarafe, just in the outskirts of Madina, munawwara and he was buried in Albuquerque melas peace and blessings be upon him.

00:21:33--> 00:21:53

The next hero we will be speaking about this evening inshallah, about the dibner summit yBnL pace l hazaragi. Allen sorry about the Allahu rabada ebano summit. He was from amongst the people of Medina munawwara and one of the first from Medina to accept Islam, because the first Pledge of Allegiance that happened,

00:21:54--> 00:22:39

not the Hajj just preceding the hegira but the previous Hajj they were two pledges of Aqaba during Hajj. One was the year that preceded the hegira. And one was one year before that. This man Oba tipnis summit was from amongst the members of the answer, who accepted Islam in the first pledge of Aqaba. And he came back the following year to pledge again the second year of Aqaba, and to call Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to Madina munawwara so this was a robot that took Masami rhodiola and a great man, he was a powerful person, he was one of the few who had actually witnessed both of these pledges, as well as all the other battles, including better, you know, if we talk

00:22:39--> 00:23:02

about the Battle of better a person who took part in the Battle of butter is known as a battery and battery. So they would say, oh, bad that took masa metal, battery and battery, meaning he took part in the Battle of butter. So why was it so important to call them Badri? I tell you, because Allah subhanho wa Taala told Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam that he has forgiven all those who took part in the Battle of butter Subhana Allah.

00:23:03--> 00:23:25

So that was an honor for them to be known as Al Badri. So this was about the tableau summit, he took part in the pledges, he took part in all the wars and the battles and all the travels of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. He was a man. His father was called a summative, no case and his mother was called karate line. That was the mother of robot that took no sommet rhodiola and

00:23:27--> 00:23:30

he was one of those who was very keen.

00:23:31--> 00:24:03

Upon learning the Quran. He took a great interest in learning the Quran, he listened to it very carefully, so much so that at the time of Abu Bakr, Siddiq Ravi Allahu anhu, when they were gathering the Quran, bringing it together, he was one of those who was also responsible, or he was one of those who was given part of the task, even at the time of man or the Allah and he was one of those who was given the task. And he was known as a person who knew the Quran very, very well. So much so that

00:24:04--> 00:24:37

he remembers the saying of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam regarding becoming a governor, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam says those who become governors, on Muslim lands, they are responsible to fulfill what their duty is. And if they don't, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will punish them. When he heard this. He felt I never, ever want to be a governor. So he made it clear to everyone I don't ever want to be a governor, and he was never a governor. So the Allahu anhu when he was the Amir, he tried with Obama to blossom it saying,

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

oh, bah, bah, bah, when you are a knowledgeable man, you have a lot of knowledge. You are one of those who has great virtue over a lot of others. And I want to I want you to be the governor. He said, No, don't even speak about being a governor. I will never do that. Because I've heard the messenger warning the people of how serious it is, what a big responsibility it is. So

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

Mara Blue katavi Allahu anhu then received a letter from Maria even Abby sufian, who was the governor of Sham and more are We are the Allahu anhu tells him or Omar, we need some people to come to us to teach us Koran and Islamic rulings. So I'm going to be hottub Allah Who knew that now the number of Muslims is increasing and we need someone to go and teach them. So he chose five people and he called them who were these five Abu Belen sorry about the Allah and obey Allah and Mohammed Jebel Allah and Abu Dhabi, Allah and, and our hero of tonight about the tableau summit of their level and,

00:25:40--> 00:26:22

and he tells them, Look, I've got a letter, and I want to send at least three of you. So if you can go, let me know which one of the three could go immediately they said about you, but I'm sorry, his elderly, he won't be able to go. And as for Obamacare, he sickly he won't be able to go, and the other three, we will go. So the three of them went, and it's reported that more abney jabel went to Philistine, Abu Dhabi, Allahu anhu, went to Damascus. And as for our man about the tableau summit of the Allahu anhu, he went to him to do what to teach the people who are on and to teach them Islam. So when he arrived there, he started teaching and so on. And he had some arguments with Maria, even

00:26:22--> 00:26:30

though Abby Sophia. And the reason is very clear. When he had arguments people told him Why do you argue with this man who's the governor of

00:26:31--> 00:27:09

the law when he said, Well, law he, he did not witness the pledge. I witness the first one and the second one and all the wars and the battles and we are the ones who pledged to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam that we will not fear when it comes to uttering the truth. So I'm only saying the truth. I'm only fulfilling my pledge that I had pledged one or two years before the hegira and the pledges that we pledged thereafter. So I pledge that I will not fear when it comes to uttering the truth. And I will always speak the truth and we will always say that which pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala and we will stand for what is right and just so this is why I speak so more our interview Sofia under the

00:27:09--> 00:27:51

Allahu anhu was very upset about the trip. The summit told him you know what, I will never stay on the same land as you. I'm going back. He went back to Madina munawwara about the to the summit rhodiola one. So Mr. Malhotra the Allahu anhu calls him in all about that what happened? He explains that look, I had an argument with or we had a disagreement with Maria. And this is what he said, and this is what happened and this is what I said, and I don't want to go back there. So I'm gonna bla bla bla, who made his famous statement in connection with Obama to velocimeter the level and what was the statement? He says, voila, he no land will ever be successful. If it does not have you are

00:27:51--> 00:28:20

people like you in it? What does this mean? Someone to correct the people, we need people to correct others. So we need someone who can actually say Listen, you are wrong, and so on, and to discuss the matter. So he sent him back with a letter tomorrow we are saying look, you are the governor of a sham. But you one person you will not be a ruler over and that is Roboto summit, he will be a ruler over himself. So panela this was the letter that was sent by Omar

00:28:21--> 00:29:08

to Maria and from that day Maria was very silent and he did not say anything until the time of us man made fun of the Allahu anhu when while we wrote a letter again to a friend of the Allahu anhu complaining about masamoto Viola and but he was a powerful men. It is reported that when it comes to the conquest of Egypt, amaryllis had sent for help to Omar musataha, the Allahu anhu, saying, you know what, we are here in Egypt and we need some men, we need backup. So Omar Abdullah, who sent 4000 men to attribute us in Egypt. And from amongst them, he sent four of the most powerful of the men One of them was robotic Masami rhodiola. And the other one is debatable. And the other was, I'll

00:29:08--> 00:29:12

make that I'll make that the one we spoke about a few moments ago, I'll make

00:29:14--> 00:29:48

and muslimah ebru mukalla robiola one. And he wrote to us, saying, I have sent you 4000 men, and as the head of every 1000 I have sent you one men each, who is worth 1000 himself Subhana Allah, which means these are powerful people. Anyway, the story is very interesting. When they got to know us, they found that the Muslims had surrounded a certain area, and the enemy refused to come out completely of that town.

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

And so the leader of the enemies decided, you know what, these people are large in number, and we definitely need to do something. Let us send some of our men to them.

00:30:00--> 00:30:43

In order to speak to discuss, let us try to strike a deal. And that was the norm up to today I hope it is still a no May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us prevent war wherever it is taking place. May Allah subhanahu wa taala help us to end the wars as well. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all I mean, so they sent three messages to the Muslim in and they spent time they spent three days with the Muslims speaking and discussing and so on. And they they understood what the Muslims wanted and the Muslims understood what they wanted. And they went back to their leader. When they went back to the leader, this leader and moko case he asks them, what did you see? They said, We saw something

00:30:43--> 00:31:30

very strange. We saw people who are very, very humble. They do not want to be haughty or proud. We saw people who sit on the ground, we saw people who eat sitting on the floor. And we saw people whom You will never recognize who's the leader from the lead, they are all looking exactly the same. And we saw people whom, when it comes to their prayer time, not a single person is lazing around, they are all praying. And we saw people who wash their faces with water several times in the day. So their leader told them what law he if this is their description, and they love death more than we love life. If that is the case, even if you put a mountain in front of them, they will defeat the

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


00:31:32--> 00:31:55

This was the statement. Now why am I mentioning this is because look at these qualities. Can we at least revive our prayer, our Salah? Can we at least revive our simplicity? Can we at least become people who are humble May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us humbleness. And May He grant us these qualities. so amazingly, Macaca decides, you know what we need to send,

00:31:57--> 00:32:23

or we need to call some of them to us. We want to see these men. So he wrote back to the leader or he sent a message to the leader to American allows for the Allahu anhu saying, We want some of your leaders to come to us. We'd like to continue with these talks. So I'm gonna blast sent 10 men, the head of them was our hero of tonight about the diviner summit or the level and so when about the diviner summit about the Allahu anhu walked in.

00:32:25--> 00:32:26

It's amazing how

00:32:27--> 00:32:30

this man looks at him, and told him

00:32:31--> 00:33:15

you know what, speak to me in a calm way. Speak to me in a calm way, I just want to understand you a bit better. So about the summit of the Allahu anhu says, I see you fear me already. SubhanAllah you're just looking at me and you're so scared. I have 1000 men out there 1000 men who are stronger than me, and they would be feared more than I am. And this leaders, this leader was shocked. He says, Look, I understand what you're saying. But I want to warn you of something. What is the warning, he says the Romans who are the colonizers of this land, they are coming to you with numbers that you will never be able to match. And they are bringing weaponry that you will never, ever be

00:33:15--> 00:33:37

able to overpower. Not at all. So I'm just warning you, we are not going to surrender, we will fight you. So about that the summit or the Allahu anhu says, no problem. You don't understand what you have just said, we do not look at numbers, we do not look at anything else. We look at our conviction in Allah subhanho wa Taala. They went back a little while later,

00:33:38--> 00:34:20

as a warm rhodiola and who decides that he's going to climb through the wall of that city. And he's going to throw himself down and open the doors. They used to have gates around the cities and open the doors himself. Come what may and SubhanAllah. bravely as debatable, a warm or the law goes up. And he jumped down saying Allahu Akbar, and he said, when you hear me say Allahu Akbar, all of you say Allahu Akbar, and come through the gate. And that's exactly what happened. No sooner did they enter that gate than they became victorious. And Subhanallah It was a lesson even for the leader, meaning the leader of the enemy to see that with numbers, nothing really helped with sophisticated

00:34:20--> 00:35:00

weaponry. Nothing really helped. But it was the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And it was what was right and it was justice that actually prevailed. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us and May He grant us a good lesson. He passed away in Philistine about the tipnis summit is buried in Jerusalem in alkaloids, and he passed away the year 34 Hijri, at the age of approximately 72 melas peace and blessings be upon him and upon us all. These were some of the heroes of Islam. These are those who struggled and they strove in order for the dean to get to us while law he Today we are seated with it on a platter, yet we are lazy to even fulfill our Salah or to correct ourselves.

00:35:00--> 00:35:40
