Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was salam, O Allah Ashraf al anbiya wa l mursalin Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Germain 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 and bless every single one of us. I mean, my brothers and sisters, if we take a look at amarapura katavi Allah and an Ali ibn Abu Talib Ravi, Allah one, these two were both stamped, and they were both stabbed in solid and fragile. And that is how they were both martyred. However, sometimes, if we're not concentrating, we might swap the names
of those who had stabbed either one of them. So just a clarification because it was brought to my notice that yesterday with a slip of the tongue, instead of saying abou el Medusa had stabbed or marble hottub I think I said Abdul Rahman animaljam. Abdurrahman animaljam, had stabbed Ali, Vitali, Brother lavon. And abou el Medusa had stabbed Armada musataha the law and so it was just a clarification that I needed to make, although it was quite clear that it was just a slip of the tongue. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the concentration that is needed in sha Allah. But this evening, we have a beautiful lesson. Because tonight we will be discussing some of the female
companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. I'm sure a lot of us would know that we have so many of the companions of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and at the same time, they are both male and female. And they are our heroes and heroines. So we need to learn lesson from both. It is just that we've been speaking about the males. There is a little bit more that we find in the more common books regarding the Sahaba from amongst the males, but it's about time we dug out the lives of those heroines of ours and learn lesson because there are great lessons. So no specific order, we are just making mention of them. And inshallah we will ask Allah to accept from us the lessons that we are
learning. The first person we've chosen to speak about is a Sahaba, a very great companion of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam who was so fortunate that her father was a companion. Her grandfather was a companion meaning Sahabi her husband was a companion.
His sisters was a companion or her family, her sibling, his companions, as well as the children Subhan Allah. So who was this as a Binti Abu Bakr as Siddiq? radi Allahu Allah Ha. What a great woman Subhana Allah. She was the daughter of Abu Bakr, Siddiq, Allah and when she was young, Abu Jamal entered the home she was 10 years older than if
they had accepted Islam, close to the beginning with her father, they had accepted Islam, the top 20 from amongst those who turned to Islam or who accepted the message of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam because obviously Ababa Casa de la Han who spoke to so many people from amongst them, his own family and they turned with him. So one day Abuja Hall knocked at the door, he was looking for Abu Bakr, acidic rhodiola. And when she opened the door, he asked, Where is your father? You know, very angry, very upset. Where is your father? So she says, he's not here right now. And he gave her one slap across her face, out of anger. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant her goodness really Allah has
written for her so much goodness. We will hear in a few moments, some of what happened in the life of this great Sahaba but that was at a young age. She served Muhammad salallahu alayhi wasallam. So much so that upon the hegira of her father, and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and we know that the two were together Abu Bakr, Siddiq, Allah and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they needed some food, when they had already left and they were out in the cave and so on, and who brought them the food. It was asthma, Binti Abdullah Casa de la when she did not have anything to carry the food in the water. So she tore part of her clothing and made it into two pouches or should we say, a
holding belt, you know, the belt which the women tie, so, it is known in the Arabic language as an attack. So she came with these belts, and in it, the food was disguised and tied, obviously, and she had come and presented it so the Prophet sallallahu Sallam made a dua for her, prayed for her and said, may Allah replace these two holding pouches that you have brought with two from
paradise. So she was known as that to Nita tain, the one with the two holding belts. She had thrown her own clothing in order to tie it and to put the the food and the drink for Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and her own father, Abu Bakr, Siddiq rhodiola one and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he was asked, Who do you love the most? He was asked this question a few times. Who do you love the most ever? He says, Isha Subhana, Allah, Allah and then who next? He says her father, which means Abu Bakr, Siddiq robiola one. So this was a sister belonging to the same men, but she was the half sister of Asia. The mothers were different. As I've been to Abu Bakr her mother was patella,
been tabula rasa. And as for I shadowed Ella and her mother was more Roman May Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us even a little bit of the goodness and the good fortune that these people have had. So she was one of those who was married to a man who had absolutely nothing he proposed earlier on. And the father looked so him to be responsible, and so that he owned nothing. The only thing he had was a horse. One knows that's it. Subhana Allah, so what to do get him married or not. Straight away. The father says, this is a good man. We get you married. He got his daughter, a smart man to be married to a rebel, a woman who waited. So with this, she became related to Mohammed Salah Salah
who are smart Binti Abu Bakr, because Allah will never know for Wally Was this the brother of Khadija Wally, the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So they were interrelated in so many different ways from Hannah law. So when they got married, she says, My husband had nothing, absolutely nothing. But I was the happiest person because he looked after me so well. My brothers and sisters, let's take a lesson from this. It has nothing to do with what you have. It has to do with how you look after your spouse. Would you rather be a wife of a very wealthy man who swears you every day and treat you like dirt? Or would you rather be the wife of a person who might not have
much in this world, but he treats you well May Allah grant us as fathers also and brothers and understanding of where and how to assist our daughters and sisters to get married. So she says we were so happy, I used to go out to take this horse and I used to make it you know, eat I used to prepare the hay and whatever for the for the horse and I used to make sure that the horse is well fed and at the same time, I used to go out and fetch the water carried on my head. And I used to go to the plot of land that that my husband had and I worked and I used to go and help cultivate and whatnot and get the seeds of the dates and crush them. And I used to cook and I used to try my best
to cook Subhanallah as I could, but my husband never complained about my food.
She says I used to make the dough, you know something very interesting and this she mentions it later on because when they came to Medina munawwara that is when obviously the the muslimeen had a little bit more in Makkah they had very, very little Subhana Allah but in Madina munawwara After some time, they began to get a bit more so she says, I used to make the dough but I was not good at preparing the bread. You know today we would call it roti or chappati something of that nature. I was not good at that. So my name is used to help me to make it so Hannah law Amazing, amazing. You know, sometimes women can be brilliant in everything but they will be one thing or two things that
they might not be good at. Her husband appreciated everything else. I think with us we have a habit of picking on one or two things that are negative and all the positives are forgotten. We need to go back to as debatable in the long run and learn about a Smart Oven to be better. She actually says her husband was this and this she mentions brilliant things. How many of us our wives would be able to say really good things about us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala makers from those no complaint about food. They lived not for food, unlike us whole day the woman is in the kitchen. Still when we come back in the evening we have a complaint about the salts Allahu Akbar, Allah grant us ease. Remember
this. So this was a smart burger. They say food was not an issue. Whatever was there they ate because they did they ate in order to live they did not live in order to eat with us. If the food is not decorated properly, we get upset. So forget about the tastes. It needs to look so good. We need to take a picture of it and put it on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. That's the problem we have today. Everything we eat, the world must know they've seen it they haven't tasted it so the decoration is more important than the taste luck but believe me if we do have one day technical
To put in a taste, we would let the world taste Allahu Akbar, Allah subhanho wa Taala Forgive us, really, we've indulged so much, that sometimes your belly is aching you don't realize it's because of the evil eye through the pictures of your food before you ate it, that you put across the globe. People who don't have food are seeing that and they thinking you're living a real Queen's life and the king's life. Yet what we do on the internet is we Photoshop our lives, and we just put something that is even better than a reality that we're living. And so everybody looks at it and says, Wow, you live like a queen. Yet we are so upset in our own lives. contentment is not achieved by showing
off what you don't really have and even by showing off what you have, contentment is achieved by thanking Allah for whatever he's given you and working hard upon your family and your offspring. So a smart Baccarat Viola Juana, she was such a beautiful woman so good in her character. She was so matured. It is reported that her children were known completely that these are the children of asthma abaca Abdullah Abu Zubaydah, even Allah Subhana Allah as debatable alarms, children, they were known and they all used to say this is the upbringing of asthma Subhana Allah, she brought them up. She worked hard. They were heroes. She saw her father become Calif.
Subhana Allah and she saw her son become Khalif. We spoke about Abdullah Abu Zubaydah, even as a woman of the Allah and how they pledged allegiance to him the bulk of the oma and he was based in Mecca, Tomoko llama, this is his mother Subhana Allah, she saw that. So look, they were olives from amongst the family. And she was such a woman, humble down to earth. So Subhana Allah It is reported that
a smile Asma Binti Abu Bakr, Siddiq of the Allahu anhu, she was very generous, so generous that she did not keep anything with her. She gave it away, no extra no access. So her son Abdullah Abu Zubaydah says that, you know, my mother and my aunt Ayesha, they were very generous, both of them. But there was a subtle difference between the two, what was the difference? Asia or the Allahu Ana, she used to collect things. And when it became a little bit more, she would then distribute it and give it but my mother never collected as soon as it came, she gave it. So they both gave, but this was a subtle difference. So a small tip back or acidic or the Allaha. She used to believe firmly and
tell the people do not wait for access in order to give a charity because you're never going to get the access, but give from what you have. And it will bring about access. So Pamela, give what you have. Don't wait, you know, when I'm rich, I'm going to give a charity give a charity now, when she used to get sick or the alarm rang her when she was ill.
She used to give charities and she used to free her slaves, you know, because she was ill, and the Sahaba or the Tabby in later on used to say Do you know what we were taught now this is not a hadith but it's a teaching that cure yourself by being charitable. give out a charity you are sick, give something give a charitable thing perhaps Allah might kill you. Due to the good deed you've done a smart thing to be because Allah and I used to be a firm believer of this, so much so that when she was sick, even the slaves became happy. They used to know hey, we started to become freed here. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us and cure us of our sicknesses make us charitable at least without
tongues. Sometimes when we are sick, we are rude, not realizing that a charity can actually be with the same tongue. So it would be reverse May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. She was a woman who was known as very charitable. And at the same time, she did not like to accept charities or should I say, not charity, she did not like to accept gifts from those who are not yet Muslim Subhan Allah. So her grandfather,
the father of Abu Bakr, Siddiq are the Allahu anhu. His name was Abu hanifa when Abu Bakr Siddiq of Allah and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam made the hegira and she was still in the in Mecca. And she was quite young at the time. The grandfather walks in, and he said, Did your father leave anything for you? Now he was blind. So she quickly put some sand and a few stones into a bag. And because he was blind, he says, Yes, he's left a lot for us. He's left a lot. What is he left? So she took his hand that was a grandfather. She took the hand and she put it on this bag. They used to keep, you know, wealth in a certain type of a pouch. So the pouch was they it was now full of sand and stone. So
when when he felt it, he said Oh, then it's okay. Then that means he's looked after you. And then he went away, but she did not want to take his money because he would have been spending on them. And she says no, I want clean, pure wealth that has been earned in the correct way. SubhanAllah so much. So that one day in Madina, munawwara katella, who was her mother.
This mother was divorced by Abu Bakr Siddiq.
One who some time back in the period of ignorance and she visited Medina. She wanted to come to her daughter and she brought a gift for her daughter. The daughter says, I won't take it from you. So the mother was hurt because she was not a believer. So they went to Rasulullah no she spoke to Ayesha or the Allahu was assisted. I want you to ask the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that this is the gift What should I do? So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, Lionheart como la winy leadin Allah mukajee la COVID de Nuala mu free juku mean de como
taboo Moto, pase persico aim in Allah, you have no personal thing. Allah does not stop you from being kind good. And just to those who, from the non Muslims who have not harmed you, they have done nothing to you, they have not driven you out of your homes, they have not stolen your property, you must be kind and just whether they are Muslim or not. Allah loves those who are just so you can take the gift, some kind of law, so she treated her mother well, and then she allowed her mother to stay there. Otherwise, she was even saying, Mom, you're not going to stay by mine. Hello, Akbar. Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us a lesson, and may He purify us in every single way. So she was a woman
who, who witnessed the Battle of Yarmouk.
she witnessed this battle with her son and her husband. And she was from amongst those who assisted morally See, the women used to participate in the battles, but not fighting, they would participate in order to boost the morale of their own men, and in order to look after them if they were injured and so on. This was happening from the time of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So many women from amongst the Sahaba had taken part or had witnessed the battle starting from 100, and badder and so on. And SubhanAllah. They were from amongst those who assisted in a very great way, not only through da, but on top of that through the moral support that they gave, and through also looking
after those who are injured and so on. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all a lesson.
She was a woman who used to be used as an example, when it came to happiness in marriage, because she adjusted her life entirely to suit the life of a husband. Remember, we said he had nothing when they got married? Do you know what happened? After the hijra, and after the victory of Makkah, and so on? As debatable, it became one of the richest of the Sahaba robiola one, so wealthy, so wealthy, but look when he started off what happened. This is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran in surah, to know regarding marriage to those who are poor, and regarding promoting marriage to those who might not have so much wealth, Allah says a coup ca ne himolla
soderling. If they are poor, they have everything else. They are good people, they have character they have Deen they have conduct and all that but they don't have wealth. Allah says Allah will grant them from his himself make them independent through his virtue. So don't worry about wealth. They will come up with their own wealth as a couple. Their sustenance will open up because they have come together Subhana Allah, but with us, I think we are still so weak. We still like I said, as days are passing. We're looking for wealth and in such a way My daughter must be very comfortable. She needs a home here and she needs another holiday home in Langkawi Allahu Akbar. May Allah grant
us ease. May Allah grant us good holidays May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us you know for us Mashallah. A holiday is not something wrong, but it becomes wrong if we forget Allah and that's what we think holidays. So if you go out and you're going to visit a place or a land your Salah comes first. Don't forget your dress code. Don't forget halal and haram. Don't forget that you're a Muslim, then it's fine. But if we go and drown ourselves in everything, forgetting Allah, what holiday is that worth? May Allah forgive us. So this was the woman. She lived many many years on what
used to give 1000 coins to the great Sahaba yet the women from amongst the Sahaba and she was one of them who used to get she used to give it out almost instantaneously. She's to give it out again in charities, something very important to be to make mention of she used to interpret dreams. She lived very, very long. She lived in Makkah Tomoko Rama, when her son was the belief. Do you know how old she was 100 years old Subhana Allah. She was the last from amongst those who made hegira to pass away. So if you hear about hegira, the last person to make Aegina which means that group of Muslims, she was the last one amongst them. The men had all gone
She was the last one to go, she passed away the 73rd year after hegira when she was 100 years old, she had not lost a single tooth. And she had she was completely sane, she was not, you know, senile and so on. And the companions, or should I say, the Tabby in those who followed, they used to say that we learned that those who do not sin in their young age, when they grow old Allah does not test them with senility, and Allah does not test them with, you know, old age that you are now in total need of someone else, although that is not a Hadith, but that's what they used to say in order to encourage the youngsters to remain steadfast May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us to stay steadfast.
So her son was martyred in front of her by a judge of news of a coffee. We spoke about it the other day, and she had a few heavy words for hydrogen use of coffee. She passed away approximately two weeks after that may Allah grant agenda.
The next hero of ours tonight Subhan Allah, a great companion of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but it did not stop there. She became known as the mother of the believers, Subhana Allah, who gets the status of Mother of the believers, one who was married to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam she gets the status of the mother of the believers, no one is allowed to marry a woman, the minute she was married to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam but before that she could have been married to whoever else Subhana Allah. So let's take a look at the story of Musa Lama. She was known as omo Salama, but that was not her name. She had a child called Salama, so she was known as the mother of
Salama rhodiola and her. Her name was him. Binti Abby omiya, the daughter of Abu mania, and she was from the Benny masoom clan of Quraysh. Mecca, she married a man known as Abu Salah, obviously, because he was the father of Salama, she was the mother of Salama, easy, they used to call him, the son Salama, even though Abby Salama, wow, have you ever thought of what that means? Salama, the Son of the Father of Allah Subhana Allah, so you really don't know the Father's name. So let's let's, let's try and look at who the father was. His name was Abdullah Abdullah Abdullah said he was a nobleman. They accepted Islam very early. It is reported that they were amongst the top 10 to accept
Islam, the two of them, they accepted Islam together.
This man Abdullah Abdullah Abdullah said and known as Abu Salah, and omo Salama, whose name was Hindi Binti Abby ommaya of the Allahu Allah. So when they had accepted Islam Quraysh started harming them. And obviously they were from Croatia, one was from Benny Abdullah said that was Abdullah said, and this
this mother of the believers of the Aloha Anna, she was from Panama soon, they started harassing them troubling them so much so that when the migration to Africa had started, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam allowed them to go these were from amongst the first who left the couple, they went, and they arrived in Africa. So when masala Abu Salah, they arrived in Africa, the Allahumma with some of the other companions, they stayed there for a while, and they lived very peacefully under an Apache as Muslims, but they missed Mecca.
They really missed Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and the other companions. They wanted to learn more. They wanted to be a part of the growth of Islam. So when Hamza and Abdulmutallab and Omar have no katavi alone, and Omar accepted Islam, news went to Africa, that now Islam is taken over in Makkah, and everything is good. They've got power and strength. So these people said, Well, then let's go back. So they started coming back and they came back. When they came back, they found Yes, it was true that Hamza bin Abdul muttalib and Omar, Abdullah and Omar accepted Islam, but it was not true that we were all now safe and secure. In fact, the harm started once again. There was come for a
while and then the war began once again. So they were harmed again. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam then permitted his companions to leave for Madina, munawwara for the Hydra, and from amongst the first to leave, abou Salama, amo, Salama, and the child, Salama, Allah non German. So what did Abu Salah do? voila, he if you look at the history of these three or this family, they were very loving. Another story similar to the previous one we've just heard. People used to give an example of the love of these Subhanallah loving in the sense that taking care of his wife, that is what love is. Love is not a statement. I love you. I love you. We might never have heard the oldies say I love you
as often as the young ones do. But trust me, they perhaps love their spouses more than the young ones Allah knows best. It goes to show that sometimes we've made our lives a show. You know, we want to walk hand in hand and
We don't get along. We don't want to solve our problems but the world must see that at one time or more, we must look like a happy couple Subhan Allah, May Allah forgive us. More important than that is to really be a happy couple.
May Allah make it easy for us. So Abu Salah says let me prepare an animal for my wife. And you know, he prepared the camel for himself, his family, and he helped his wife and so on. They got on to the camel and they started leaving Makkah the first from amongst those who are leaving for hegira from amongst the first we already had Musab neuroma, and then, you know they had left but this family Subhanallah they were from amongst those who were right at the beginning. But something sad happened very sad.
As they were leaving some people from Bonnie masoom, the tribe of almost alhama saw them leave. So they rushed to them. And they stopped them because they were stopping people from going they said we don't want you to go. Now Abu Salah says You have no right over me. They said yes. But this daughter is a daughter of our clan. She's our daughter. We will never allow her to go with you. So masala says but I want to go with him. No, you won't be allowed. So they grabbed her they snatched her they took her they pulled her they dragged her. And Abu Salah was helpless because there was a group of people on one hand and he's the only man on the other and they took her away and just as they are
taking her away, Bonnie Abdullah said who the who's the clan of this man, almost Abu Salah, they see the child Salama going with money masoom and the mother. They say no, that child belongs to our clan with the father is from us. So they said we're going to take him and the people of money Muslim did not argue with that. They said Okay, take the child and here is almost a llama crying for her child. Don't separate me from my child, as it is you've separated me from my husband. Now you want to separate me from my son. It's the only thing I have Subhanallah No, they did not listen separated three ways. So the husband had no option. He went to MK Medina to munawwara. The wife was with the
people of many Muslim and the child Salama, a little baby, now gone with the people of money. Abdullah said. So Subhanallah she says, I cried and cried, make dua, and I was lost. And I used to come out to the place where this whole thing happened every day. And I used to just cry and relive what was going on. She couldn't really eat properly. She couldn't think properly. She couldn't drink properly. And she says I struggled and suffered. And days passed, months passed and almost a year passed and my condition deteriorated almost completely. Until one day a man from amongst my cousins happened to see me and he felt sorry for me. So he spoke to my family very strongly. And he said
look, why don't you let this Myskina you know this poor woman, let her join her husband, what has she done to you? So he managed to speak to them and convince them to now let her go to her husband? May Allah subhanho wa Taala unite those who are separated from their husbands with them. I mean, for whatever reason, there are so many whom this happens to but we don't realize, may Allah make it easy for you. I mean, so she was really touched.
But she said, I can't leave. Why can you not leave? What about my son, he's now almost a year old or a year old.
So I can't live without him. I'm going to go to my husband but my child a piece of me is here. So after some time, someone else spoke to the to Bunny, Abdullah acid, and managed to convince them to release the child when they released the child. She was the happiest woman ever. Immediately. She got that same camel of hers. She prepared it by feeding it well and getting a few things. And she jumped onto the camera and she was going and Subhanallah who was with her? Nobody, a journey that took almost 16 days. Do you know that? Nowadays you go Mecca to Medina, four hours. That time it was a rush and you had very good horses you could get there in four days. If you had normal camels and
they were men who moved very quickly, they would get there in eight days. But the journey with women and family members 16 days and you needed to know the way and you would perhaps be waylaid by highwayman. And so dangerous was the path. But she went all alone she was she left muckety muck karma, who just the two of them, her her child and the animal and they started going so panela she says I made the dua to Allah, Oh Allah protect me. I'm going for a cause I'm making the hegira I'm going to Rasulullah Salallahu Salam and to my husband and Yala, you protect me. And as she got to tell him,
the man responsible for the keeping of or whose family was responsible for the keeping of the, the key of the Kaaba.
This man reminded me of the law and
he saw her he recognized her and he remembered something. What did he remember? The father of omo Salama, was known as zurdo rockin Zotto rock. It means the provision
Have a rider. You know, when travelers used to come if they came to almost Solomon's Father's house, and his name was abou Maja mahira, they did not use to bring any provision, because he used to provide for them free on the house, so to speak. You know, normally when we're traveling on a journey, you're going perhaps to Penang or anywhere else, you know, there was a time when we used to take all our provisions before all these restaurants came into existence. But Subhan Allah, you will take lunch up to today, people might tell you, you know, take some lunch in case you need it, we still do it, even if it's a modern country. And even if sometimes you traveling by air, some people
want to give you you know, certain things. And this is why sometimes typically you find people opening their lunch in the aircraft, and Subhanallah the aroma of those sauces, really goes through the whole aircraft and everyone looks back at you and says, Hey, what's going on? You know, Subhana Allah once I witnessed some people actually offering the others would you like some, you know, may Allah subhanho wa Taala help us. So zaraki was a man they knew, if you're going to him, you don't need anything he will give it. So as Madame Natal, he remembered this and she said, Oh, daughter of zaraki where are you going? She says, I'm going to Medina.
He says, you cannot go alone, I will take you Subhana Allah.
the journey occurred.
He, he really looked after her with utmost respect, you know what she says? She says, well, law, he will law he, the way he got me off and on the camel, day and night for all the days and the food and everything else. He would stop the camel, bring it down, walk away, wait for me to get off after a while, come back, and then take the camel to the tree tie down, prepare a place for me to rest and then go away. And then I would come back and rest there and he would rest at a different three different position. Later on, he would come back and you know, declare that he's coming by a little noise. And then when I knew he was coming, I would get ready and so on. And he would, he would then
get the camel ready, walk away, I would then get on to the camel, then he would come back and take it again. So panela and he continued doing this whenever I needed to stop, he would stop he would jump off his camel. He would get on he would actually get my camel down and then walk away for me to jump off so that I'm not embarrassed in any way. So she says Well, I've never been in the company of a strange man. But I know this man, a man that his the way he honored me and how modest he was, is something that I would never see again Subhana Allah,
Allah, Allah and you know, just to stop for a moment. He is the man whom they had accepted Islam. He had accepted Islam was solid. And with us, they came after her davia to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before and at the at the time of the victory of Makkah. The key of the Kaaba was returned to her, even though I live in a bizarre liberal theologian who was one of those who was reluctant he was telling, telling Muhammad Salallahu salam, as it is we quench the judge with zum zum. Why don't we keep the key as well? And then Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam says, Call us Magna. talhah Allah has instructed me to return the Amana to whom it belongs to it belongs to him, it will remain with him
and his family up to the end of time. To this day, the same family holds the key of the Kaaba Subhan Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us. This strengthened us man of Mittal. Ha you know some duration say that he accepted Islam at that point, but the most correct narration say he accepted Islam with Khalid milliliter of Allah one at and Amazon announced when they entered into the presence of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam after her debut. So this was
we owe it to him because he looked after a woman who later became known as mother of the believers. So how did she become mother of the believers as Myrna Mittal has arrived in Cuba, and when he arrived in Cuba, he looked at the area and he told her, okay, your husband is in this area, I leave you and you can now enter safely. And he turned away and went back to Morocco. Imagine making a 16 day journey just to drop a woman who's doesn't even belong to your faith. So Pamela, look at this. And then now he's going back to muckety muck Rama, what must have made him do it? Imagine the father had so good qualities that this man remembered the way the father on all the people whom he knew and
whom he didn't know he was known as a rocket. So he says the minimum I can do for his daughter is to honor her by taking her and I will come back Subhana Allah. So she went in, she was united with her husband and her and her child, and she later had many other children or a few other children. One was named Dora one was Zeynep, the daughters and another son known as Rama. These were all the children of Salah, Abu Salah, the children of Abu Salah.
So So Subhana Allah,
this men, they were so excited, so happy and they lived a really happy life. He took part in the Battle of butter and he returned
So he's a Badri, who Abu Salah he took part in the Battle of boyhood, he returned, but he returned injured and he succumbed to his injuries at some stage. So she became a widow. Now, they got along so well that she said to herself, I won't be able to marry someone who can they be amongst the men better than Abu Salah. But at the deathbed of Abu Salah, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam visited him, and he made a dua, he was worried about his family, he was injured. And he was worried about his little children that he had and his widow that he was going to leave. So the prophets Allah Salaam taught him, oh, Allah helped me through my difficulty and replace it for me with something even
better. You know, when you have a problem, we make it to Allah homogeny famously, but he was newly hired Amina. Allah helped me through my problem, Grant me something even better. So there was a duel similar to this that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam made him say, and he made a dua Don't worry, Allah will take care of what you leave behind in an even better way.
And Subhana Allah He then passed away when she refused to get married, so she until she became known as a human, which means the widow of the Arabs. Now that was an insult, because at that time, at the time, the Arabians or the Arabs at the time, they would never leave a widow, without getting married to her someone getting married to her to look after her and her children, so they would not waste time. Unlike us. Subhan Allah, a widow is someone who perhaps might have a bad reputation just like a divorcee. May Allah protect us that is not true. Perhaps they are some of the best women from amongst us, but who knows? May Allah subhanho wa Taala make life easy for those who have suffered in
either way? So this was musella Maria Anna Hyndman to be Romania. She had a few proposals and she said no, I've got children. I'm now old, I can't marry. And I am very possessive because I was literally spoiled by my husband, in the sense that he used to pamper her. He used to, you know, look after her take so good care of her. She was worried that I might never get that again. And then I'm going to start comparing and things will happen and I might say something to my husband, that will make him upset. So Subhana Allah, Abu Bakr, Siddiq Allahu anhu was from amongst those who propose to marry her. She turned it down on top of Allah who was amongst those who wanted to marry her
proposed, she turned it down Subhan Allah imagine Omar Abu Bakr Siddiq, how she said no, because now I'm old. I'm not just a little young girl, number one, number two is I have kids and number three is I'm quite possessive. So when she the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, later in the fourth year of hegira, proposed to marry her.
And she said, You know, I have got three issues. One is I'm old to is, I am very possessive and three is I've got children. So he says, As for your possessiveness, I make dua to Allah to help you overcome it and you will, number one, number two, as for your age, remember, I am slightly older than you Subhana Allah.
And at number three, as for your children, they will be mine, I will take care of them Subhan Allah. So she says okay, she accepted, the proposal got married, instead of being known as omo Salama, which means the mother of selama, she became known as omoove, meaning the mother of all the believers, including yourself and myself, yourselves and myself. So Pamela, and she lived a beautiful life. And she is known for many things I will just mention one or two of them. One is, whenever they saw any one of her children, again, similar to a snap into a bucket, they knew this is a child, it has to be of masala because she was known. She was like a school that children with
discipline well looked after. They were brought up by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and almost Allah Subhana Allah, Allah Allah. So during the day BIA, she went with the momineen and the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you know, the women used to go with the men at the time. And amazingly, the prophets Allah wa salam, they struck a deal with the co founder of Qureshi and they were told now we're going to go back but they had come with their animals in order to make Rama and they wanted to cut their animals at that time. They used to slaughter animals for Homer as well. So what happened is they went back, they had to go back, but the Prophet sallallahu Sallam got up and told the
people, his companions that okay, since we have already made our intention for Amara, each one of us, we have to sacrifice the animals we have and shave our hair, and we're going back without the camera, and they were all sad and no one moved. The prophets of Salaam was looking at them. I have just issued an instruction and the companions have not yet moved. So he went into his little tent that he had, and almost Salama rhodiola and I was there. So Professor Los Alamos looking worried. She heard what had happened. She is the one who suggested to him, imagine he's the Nabhi of Allah. She said, O Messenger, sallAllahu sallam, I have an idea. What's the idea? Why don't you come out
and you get shave your hair and sacrifice your animal.
Or sacrifice your animal and shave the hair that was the order. So if you do it without saying one word they will follow Subhana Allah He said, That's exactly what I will do. You know, today if you have to listen to your wife, people will start saying, Ah, this man is you know, he's this and is that well, law has nothing wrong at all. If she comes up with something better than myself or yourself, voila, you must take it. In fact, you would be wrong if you did not take it, who said that a woman cannot, you know, come up with something better look at this, the wife of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, she gave an instruction the whole army had followed Subhan Allah. So Muhammad
Sallallahu Sallam he came out He did not say one word sacrifice this animal looked at the the one of the them who was going to cut his hair called him and said you shaved my head. And as that was happening, everyone started doing the same. So she looked and she was smiling and saying, didn't I tell you so Hannah law, this was almost Allah Marathi, Allah Allah. May Allah be pleased with her. She She was a great woman. She had many students from amongst the Sahaba.
She was the last from amongst the wives of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to pass away. She passed away when she was 90 years old in the year 61 hegira. Three years after I shadowed the Allahu Allah. So she narrated a lot of Hadith I
used to be known as one of the fuck he had the Sahaba. She had a lot of knowledge knowledgeable from the Sahaba from the Sahaba, yet the women, but almost Salama, after the death of eyeshadow, the law they used to come to her and ask her and she also became known as one of them. And she had many students they used to speak to the male's also from behind the screen. It was something unique and amazing. And so Hannah law she lived in Madina munawwara she passed away she's buried in Bakir, and as we said she was the last from amongst the mothers of the believers to pass away. So just to quickly recap, a small urban tip backer was the last from amongst those who made hegira to pass
away, and masala Mara Viola and hominin, who married Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she was the last from amongst the wives of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to pass away in the year 63 hegira May Allah subhanahu wa taala help us draw beautiful lessons I'm sure you will be able to draw even more lessons from these beautiful lives. May Allah grant them goodness grant us all goodness male and female from amongst us wa sallahu wa salam wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhan Allah Subhana Allah, Mohammed Ganesha to Allah, Allah, Allah and Mr. Furukawa to be unique
