Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
smilla rahmanir 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 wa be no woman to be on the axon in Isla Medina but we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we thank him for everything he has given us. And we ask us to protect we asked him to protect us from every difficulty and calamity we asked him to bless every single one of us to send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household, all his companions, may Allah bless them and bless every one of us, our offspring to come as well up to the day of piano, I mean, my brothers and sisters, the heroines that
we are speaking about, we started yesterday and we are going to continue by the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala. One of those who had the highest of ranks, was none other than a lady, the mother of the believers known as Khadija been to Hawaii lead of the Allahu Allah. Khadija been to Hawaii Lead Acid rhodiola. And so Who was she? Her father was Hawaiian acid. That much we know because it's part of her name. But her mother was known as Fatima ADA. Notice the common names from amongst those of the Sahaba and even slightly before, we have names like Abdullah, names like Xena, Xena, a daughter of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, two of his wives and so many others. We have rupiah, we have
unconsumed we have our Isha Fatima May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us the ability to name our children with those names that have good meanings. And those names that are blessing. today. Sometimes we look for names that sound good, but they don't have any meaning. You know, it just sounds like a nice sound. Wow, I like that. But what does it mean? Oh, don't worry for as long as it sounds nice. My brothers and sisters as Muslims It is our duty to ensure that we have chosen a name that has a good meaning May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us to do that. So Khadija been to Hawaii lado de Allahu Allah.
Her father had died in one of the wars so as she grew up, It is reported that she was married to a man known as attic Ebner, his alma Kazumi, and they they had some children according to some narrations, and one child according to other narrations, and no children. According to some. It's and the child here was called hint according to some narrations, and the man passed away after some time he too died. We don't know exactly how. And it is reported that after a short period of time, she was married again to a man known as Abu Hala, Abu Hala, Abu Zahra or even ozora Tamimi. And with him, they had children.
Hala was the name of his daughter and Hindi was the name of another son. So Hindi is a name that was used at the time for both male as well as female. So this is according to some of the narrations, but he had passed away as well. So she was known as a widow. She was quite young. And she was a very wealthy woman from amongst the lofty tribes of courage. So she was well respected. And at the same time, many of the men had wanted to marry her. But she was very skeptical because obviously she had been through a marriage and another one according to the narrations, although some of them say it was only one marriage, the other say it was two. However, what is confirmed is she was a wealthy
businesswoman who used to, who used to strike deals with some of the men in order to take her wealth, and merchandise and go up to the north or down to the south of the peninsula, and come back, having engaged in business on her behalf, with the condition of having a percentage of the share Subhanallah which means 50%. You take it and go and work, you come back, and you give me back 50%. So some of the men had done this for her. But she was not so satisfied with the exact caliber of the men and what they were doing and the accountability and so on. So she had heard that there was a man known as a Sadek, I mean, the most truthful and the most trustworthy, and she was very keen on
getting this man in order to do some business with. So she managed to speak to him salallahu alayhi wasallam, Mohammed Abdullah, she had no clue that this man is going to be the Prophet of Allah. But Allah subhanho wa Taala chose for Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, something unique, and it had to happen we will hear in a few moments. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke to her. She says, look, I'd like you to do this business.
And you take a certain percentage and so on. And he agreed. So she said I will send with you one of my servants. His name is Mei Salah. So Mesa went with Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Apparently they went up to a sham, and they did some business. And it was the Baraka, the blessings Subhana Allah, may Allah grant us blessings in our business as well, such that the profit that was made was more than double than ever before. And the accountability was to the tee Subhana Allah, He gave back exactly, every single coin, and every fraction of merchandise that was owed, there was an account of it. And this impressed a lot. Number one, this man is new to business, but look at how much has come
back in profit. Number two is that everything is accounted for. Number three is may Sarah said I've never seen a man like this. He is so great, so noble, his character is exemplary. He addresses everyone with utmost respect. He's so sharp that he knows business people whom he should not trust. And at the same time, he he was always well spoken. He was a person of the greatest of morals and conduct and I've seen him through the journey day and night, how he spoke what he did, how he carried himself how he ate. I've never seen a man like this. So when this happened, she now thought to herself, you know, I'm quite an old woman by this time she was approximately, you know, the
narrations actually differ as to the exact age of Khadija pina colada, viola and her. Some of them say she was 35 Some say she was 25. Some say she was 28. But the most common narration she was 40 years old, we will stick to that in Sharla. So 40 years old, she thought to herself, you know what? I think maybe I should see if maybe I can get this man convinced to marry me so panela now young men 25 known as the most honest, the most trustworthy Quraysh looked up to Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam so much prior to him becoming a prophet, they looked up to him, no doubt, there was no doubt in courage that he was the most trusted person amongst them all. They knew that. So Subhanallah she
spoke to a friend of hers, and she started saying, you know what a good man. I've heard so much about him. What do you think you know, her name was Nafisa minty mana Bay, according to some of the narrations meant Mona Lisa was her name. She was a very close friend of Khadija Hoyle rhodiola. So she said, No, he's a good man. Let's see what we can do and so on and you know, spoke well about him. And at the same time, she decided, right, I'm going to make this match. It's going to happen, obviously, by the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So she decided to talk to someone who spoke to someone and so on and so on, until the news got to the family of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam now, he
was an orphan looked after by the grandfather then looked after by the uncle. So now the main person responsible for him was the uncle Abu Talib. Abu Talib had protected him and Abu Abu Talib looked after him up to this age of 40 and Subhan. Allah with him was the another uncle known as Hamza bin Abdul muttalib. So Abu Talib Abdulmutallab Hamza bin Abdul muttalib. The two of them chose to go to those who were the custodians are the guardians should I say of Khadija she was old, but her closest male relative was her uncle known as am ribbon acid in Abdullah Rosa. So they went to him and they spoke, you know, to him, they pursued this proposal that it continued, and it ended in Annika in a
marriage according to what they did at the time. A marriage would mean that the one family agrees with the other. The two were married and SubhanAllah. They lived as a couple. So Mohammed salatu salam was married to Khadija been to Hawaii. Imagine 25 years old marrying someone 40 she was so happy. She couldn't believe that he actually accepted and it actually happened Subhana Allah amazing. But this was Allah Allah had planned something unique. They had six children. Who were these six children, two boys, Abdullah and Al Qasim al Qasim passed away at the age of two approximately it's reported that he could walk and so on, he could just about jump onto an animal
and that's when he passed away. It was a very sad day, son of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was Khadija Allah and he passed away. And as for Abdullah, he was known as Ebola here as well, but his name was Abdullah. He passed away in infancy. This was a great loss, but it was preparing them they had both struggled with loss of their parents, as well as loss of relatives and now loss of their own children. SubhanAllah Khadija been to Hawaii and
adjusted her life completely, not one day did she make Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam feel that I am wealthier than you and I am the one and what I say will go and what my family says will go
You're an orphan, you've got nothing as it is you are just working for me. And as it is not a single day, she adjusted her life. She served him, she obeyed his instruction. And they shared a brilliant relationship whereby both of them grew together in such a way that they supplemented and complemented one another. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us in the same way with our spouses. So the child was lost, another child was lost. They had four daughters, the daughters were Zainab Rukia Uncle Tom and Fatima. These were the four daughters of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, all of them from Khadija Venezuela.
And what happened,
they were looked after very well by the mother and the father. But the father Subhan Allah, he was in seclusion a lot. He was very, very upset with what was happening in Quraysh, in terms of burying the daughters alive, you know, when they had news of a daughter, they would get upset, and they would bury these daughters alive. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Forgive us, may he make us from amongst those who are happy when we are informed of a female child while it that is your daughter paradise. I mean, so he had four daughters, but not not once did he feel a you know what, I've got daughters no ways I don't even have sons. My sons have passed away, not once. He considered it an
honor Subhana Allah. So one day, as he was in the cave of Hira, Subhana, Allah
gibreel alayhis salam came to him with revelation and we know the beginning of revelation was with the words ikara read the words of revelation Subhana Allah. So he responded Manoj Bukhari I am not a reader, I cannot read, and he was told again, ekra Subhana Allah and the story, you know, is recorded in the books of Sierra in the books of the history. And he was taken by this, shivering, he ran down from the mountain, who did he go to Subhana Allah? Who did he go to? Today, when a man has a problem, he keeps it hidden from his wife, because it will become a bigger problem, hello, Allah, forgive us.
But when it came to Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he knew that this woman has the qualities of a real wife whom if I go to her with a problem, she will help me through it, she will stand by my side. This was the relationship and she knew him to be the most honest, the most trustworthy, unique individual, the greatest of mankind and the greatest of all the creatures of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So she knew the credentials of this individual. She was Subhanallah seeing him witnessing him come shivering, and he says zombie loony zombie loony, you know, cover me cover me. And immediately she covered him. She embraced him. What is it? So he mentioned the story I was in the cave. And this
is what happened to me with every single detail. She said, Well, law he Allah will never ever let you down. Never color Hola Hola, yo, Zica la vida. It's impossible that the almighty let you down. You are a man who is honest, you are upright. You look after the poor. You look after the orphans. You maintain family ties. You have great qualities you help the distressed and you reach out to others. Do you have no bad qualities? It's impossible that Allah let you down? No, we will find out what has just happened to you come with me to a cousin of mine. He knows a lot about revelation. And he knows a lot about the scriptures. Let's go to him. So she took him to waratah even nofal who was
a cousin of hers who knew a lot about the testaments the previous scriptures, so they went to him. And Subhana Allah Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam with his wife, Khadija been to Hawaii, or the Allahu Allah, what a great support. What a solid powerful pillar. She didn't tell him No, you were seeing things. No, you know what, it was just a nightmare. No, I believe you. That was one of her first words, I believe you. There was no question about not believing him because he never ever lied before that. So panela never, not at all. Today, we try to convince our wives that we are telling them the most truthful of statements, but because we've lied 50 times in the past, even the truth is
considered okay. By the way, by the way, my brothers and sisters, we hope we can learn a lesson from this Subhanallah they will believe you on condition that you are a person who doesn't lie. May Allah grant us truthfulness. And may He forgive us for wherever we've faltered in the past. I mean, so my brothers and sisters here is Khadija Viola and her with her husband going to her cousin, or a cabin Nova. And what happened is, when they went to our cabin nofal he said, After hearing the story, while ah he This is the same angel that came to the previous prophets, including Jesus and Moses and the others, and in in a short time he is going to tell you to convey the message. So this was the
beginning of Revelation, the beginning of Prophet today.
But he was not yet instructed to deliver a message that was going to come in the next revelation Subhana Allah wa COVID novel, it's reported that he passed away before the day that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam was instructed to convey the message. So he says, I wish that I am present the day you are instructed to convey the message. That was one of his statements, what are to be known for anyway, going back to our heroine of today.
So Hannah la Khadija been to Hawaii there'll be a lot more than her. So she comes back with Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam being there's no dispute. She was the first to accept this message from all human beings, the first no one had accepted it before her because she was the first to be approached Subhana Allah. So Khadija been to Hawaii literally Allah and ha, she now accepts the message, and this is when Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam later on started informing the others. And amazingly, then you have Abu Bakr, Siddiq, Alibaba, Alibaba and jd haritha hora de la and then the others who started accepting Islam.
And then Quraysh starts with all their harm. And Khadija been to Hawaii It was a powerful woman in courage. She had business links today, if you are to boycott someone is one of the most powerful ways of destroying them to boycott the most powerful way. If I don't do business with you, you don't do business with me and no one does business with you what happens to your survival, while your survival depends on whether or not people do business with you because you need something to survive? May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us an understanding. So here you have Khadija been to Hawaii literally Aloha, and she was so unique. She used her power in terms of economy, economic
power, to protect Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam over and above the support as a wife that she had. So this is why later on Mohammed salatu salam says she spent on me when the others held back Subhana Allah, do you know that there was a time when Quraysh had chosen to surround them and boycott them for almost three years? What had happened? A lot of the wealth was Khadija vinho a lot of a loved one. They were fed sometimes through what she had. May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us ease. May He grant us the ability to spend our wealth in the right path. So she used her wealth but not once. Did she say you my husband, okay. How can I use my wealth on you? Today in some cultures,
if a husband has to marry a wealthy woman, they will insult him? They will call him names Subhanallah look at what happened to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam the wife spending on him Subhan Allah, but not once did she make it seem that this is my virtue over you not even once. Let's learn a lesson from this one law he It's not wrong to marry a woman who might be from a wealthy family. But it's wrong for that family to think that they are now doing him a favor. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us it is actually two ways. We serve in whatever way Allah has blessed us and they will serve in whatever way Allah has blessed them. Each one is blessed with something different from
Allah subhanho wa Taala. But we've all been blessed if only we search for where the blessings are, and we appreciate those blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala so here is Khadija been to Hawaii, Allah Allah. She did not hesitate. She supported him. She protected him she spoke highly of him even after Prophethood she constantly said he is the most truthful, what he has said is completely true. So much so that her virtue is very, very high. One day jabril alayhi salatu wa sallam came down with revelation. And do you know what he said? He says, Oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Khadija been to Hawaii lead is about to enter the door with something in her hand. So which means she was
about to enter the door, when she enters.
Pass her the greetings of Allah subhanho wa Taala and my own greetings Subhana. Allah Subhan Allah, so amazing. She was greeted, she asked you mean Allah subhanho wa Taala greeting me. And Mohammed salatu salam says, Yes, you. And on top of that jabril alayhi salam says, tell her that Allah subhanho wa Taala has prepared for her a home in paradise made of pearls. So she was one of the women who was promised paradise already had Egypt been to Hawaii, one of the first remember she was the first of the Omen meaning the mothers of the believers the first without dispute. In fact, so much so that they say who was higher it should have
been to Hawaii, Allahu Allah. So Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was asked later on, who do you love the most? You remember we mentioned it, he said Asia, but some of the scholars say that means from amongst those who were alive Khadija been away live in LA and had already passed away. So let's listen to what happened about Khadija rhodiola Anna Sharia law says you know what, once
Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam he used to constantly
make mention of Khadija very highly Oh, she was a very good woman. She supported me she did this. She did that. So one day I told him Oh, Mohammed Salah Salim. She was an old lady, she's passed away. Allah is now giving you better than her. So why do you keep on talking about her? He says, well, Allah He, Allah has not replaced me with someone better. Whoa, whoa, what the statement? What the statement? So what does that mean? So he continues and he says, she believed in me when everybody just believed
Subhana Allah, she believed my message when the others disbelief.
spent her wealth when everyone denied me, she was there. She was the strong pillar of support. And she bought all my children when none other did. And this was before Marielle cryptopia of the law. So I Sharia law, and I looked at him and he had this passion when he was speaking. And she says, forgive me. I will never ever say one word negative about Khadija after this day. And she never did.
So much so that Mohammed salatu salam prior to this incident.
He used to constantly spend you know, whenever they slaughtered an animal or something, he used to take a little bit of the meat and send it to the Friends of Khadija been to Hawaii or the law. This was after he died as well in Medina. And Khadija been to Hawaii legally Ilana had already passed away. So I shall the law says before the incident where I promised never to talk negative about her. I used to say oh messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It seems like Khadija is the only woman on earth. You want to send gifts to all her friends Subhan Allah you know, sometimes people can say statements without realizing the impact of it. So Mohammed salatu salam spoke to her again and
reminded her regarding the virtue of Khadija been to Hawaii lovely Allahu Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us and bless them all.
So I shall be Allah and I used to say that was one person we knew that as much as we felt in our hearts when the missile Allahu alayhi wa sallam used to speak, but that was his status. Allah chose her for something he did not choose us for. Allah chose her for something. And this is why, uniquely when Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was married to Khadija been to Hawaii in a gondola Anna, she was much older than him, but he never married anyone else. Where are those who say not all, who believed that he was a womanizer only interested in women, up to the age of 50s. In the 50s 53, approximately and beyond, he only had an old woman with him. When in the peak of that youth, perhaps if he was a
womanizer, he would have chosen from amongst the rest of the women who all wanted to marry him. But no, he made a choice, which was really the best of choices helped by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Look at this. This was the men you know, today, the peak of a man is perhaps from his early 20s, maybe slightly earlier, the late teens and so on up to the age of about 5055 you would call it peak during that peak. Well, that's if you're lucky. SubhanAllah you know, the men of today are slightly weaker than the men of that time. I'd like to think so. If you'd like to call it a peak during the peak Subhan Allah He only had a day job in the toilet. And she makes mention of how faithful and loyal he
was. He did not say one statement to make her sad. She used to come with the food and the drink and she served him. She says he was the best of husbands ever. Subhan Allah Subhana Allah amazing description of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam by his own wife, how many of us our wives would be able to bear witness similarly, Allahu Akbar, Allah subhanho wa Taala help us treat one another in a beautiful way. I mean, so this is Khadija been to Hawaii, aloha Muhammad. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, four of the women with the highest of status the most complete of all women. Number one, marry, the mother of Jesus May peace be upon her. Number two, Khadija, the daughter of
Allah and her number three Fatima, the daughter of Mohammed, number four Asya, the wife of the pharaoh May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all blessings. I want to quickly make mention of a story of this great woman Khadija been to Hawaii, you know the law and her. You know, the Battle of battle took place and after that there were some captives. Khadija been to Hawaii, the Aloha Anna had passed away the 10th year of prophethood. That year was known as the year of sadness. Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not need to make a hijra for as long as Khadija was alive. Subhan Allah Allah Allah Allah It was never discussed Khadija alive Abu Talib alive no hegira no discussion of hegira to Medina. Khadija passes away Abu Talib passes away suddenly it's known as the year of loss the year of sadness then speech about moving out of Mecca why your main pillars of support
But that was the plan of Allah. He wanted him to go to Madina munawwara but look at the power. Have you ever thought of it in the life of Khadija been to Hawaii lado de la Medina was not even discussed? Because here you had solid support May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us. So the Battle of butter took place
and from amongst the capitals was a blouse of Naga beer. And when they had to make a payment in order to be released, he presented a necklace. When Mohammed salatu salam saw the necklace His eyes were filled with tears. Why?
I will never be I was married to his daughter, Xena.
And whose necklace was that? When Zainab scented in order to free her husband. That necklace belonged to Khadija been to Hawaii with a viola and her she had given it to her daughter. So Mohammed Salah Salaam looks at it with tears in his eyes and asked his companions, if you allow if you permit, we give this necklace back it belongs to Khadija
meaning my wife Subhan Allah, Allahu Akbar, and the necklace was given back and this is herbal acid, labia, he went back and later on he came as a Muslim because he saw the treatment, the fair treatment of all the captors. That is a story on its own. But going back to Khadija vindico a little the Allahu Allah, she was a great woman and Subhan Allah she passed away as we said, the 10th year of prophethood and it was known as the year of sadness. May Allah grant her Jana and May Allah grant us a lesson.
The second heroine we have this evening from amongst the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one of those who was the most similar to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in almost every aspect of upbringing. Wow, you might wonder who
Sufi Binti Abdullah muttalib radi Allahu Allah, the daughter of Abdul Kalam, who was Abdul muttalib. He was the man who looked after Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam when his mother passed away at the age of six from six to eight Sophia Binti Abdullah Ali, and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam similar age she was one year older than him. According to the narrations, similar age, they were brought up by the same men two years. So she lost her father at the age of nine. Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam lost his grandfather who was her father, when he was eight years old. May Allah peace and blessings be upon them. So what happened? She was a young girl, the daughter of Abdul muttalib Her name was Sophia.
And she was very closely connected to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam his mother was Amina Binti Wahab Sophia Benji Abdulmutallab. His mother was the sister of Amina known as hell, I mean to him, did you know that Subhana Allah amazing. So these two were related in another way as well.
They are after Sofia, Binti Abdulmutallab.
She was looked after by Abu Talib. According to some of the narrations, the most correct of the narrations. The same men the uncle who looked after Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam also took care of Sophia in the abdomen. So this is how they grew up. And it is reported that her features also resemble some of what Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam had, obviously she was the aunt. Now, she was a woman who was married to an herb who was that the brother of Abu sufian Abraham,
the leader of Quraysh, one of the leaders of Qureshi, his brother was married to Sofia Binti Abdullah Ali, but he died when he died. She was married over to a man listen to this
album even to Hawaii. So who is able to boil it? On one hand Mohammed Salah Salam is married to Khadija vinicola and this aren't Sofia Binti Abdullah Talib married to allow him to Hawaii. Here we are related once again. And and nephew married to brother sister Subhana Allah look at the relation. This is why we say this was so similar to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. Now, listen to how she accepted Islam. Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam given the Buddha given prophet who told what the Rashi carabin get up and warn your family and those who are close to you the kinsmen. So what he did, he got the hold of the whole of bunny Abdulmutallab. And he says, Oh you people accept Islam, this is
who I am and so on. From amongst them. He took some names, names of people. He says, I want you to accept Islam accept this message. So he says, Yeah, Fatima to Binta Mohammed, oh, Fatima, daughter of Mohammed, all Sophia, daughter of Abdulmutallab. I cannot protect you from Allah in any way but you accept this Deen Subhana Allah. And that is when the new roughish lamb entered her heart. She grew up with this man. She knew the man. She knew everything about him. She knew he was honest. immediately she chose Islam. She said no, this nephew of mine is totally honest. I believe what he's saying. So it's reported that her and her son Zubaydah vanilla warm Look at that. Zubaydah was known
as the disciple of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, they accept Islam, at a similar time that her brother accepted Islam.
Who was her brother? Hamza Abner Abdul muttalib Subhana Allah. Look at how closely connected this woman was Sophia Binti Abdulmutallab rhodiola Anna. She was a woman who was tested by Allah. She was widowed once she married again, Allah one passed away widow the second time and Subhanallah she was patient. She was very brave. She looked after her child on her own her children, one of them was is debatable of one or the other one. young boy, she was very strict with him. It is reported she used to beat him sometimes, but in a loving way. So his uncle, her in laws, so to speak, used to interfere a lot in the upbringing up to this day you have in laws interfering in the upbringing of
children and women complain, you know, my in laws are doing this, relax, give her a chance. Give them the chance. They know what they're doing. If you want to guide them, talk to them in a respectful way. But don't start interfering as though these are your own children. You're going to bring them up. They might be your grandchildren, you have definitely a right to guide, but you don't have a right to interfere. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala help us so no foul, if you have a lead who was the uncle? He used to tell her? How do you beat this child You better leave him alone and they used to try to spoil the child more. She said no ways I'm not going to allow you to spoil this
child. I know that I love the child and he loves me, but I'm disciplining him because I want him to grow up to be a brave man and to be a man who understands values. And this is debatable. I want us to appreciate right up to the point of his death. He appreciated his mother and how she brought him up even though she was a little bit hard. No Filipino Hawaiian it was it was one of those who used to Hamas debate him after he accepted Islam. So what was the point? When I'm a child you want to spoil me when I'm an adult now you want to harm me, Allahu Akbar. So these are sometimes you know those who are distant May Allah subhanahu wa taala help us to fulfill the rights of one another. So
Sofia, Binti Abdulmutallab, she was a woman who learned
a little bit of battle herself, you know, she knew how to aim she used to train her little child regarding spears and bows and arrows and so on. And she was a very knowledgeable person. She was also known as a poet. She has a lot of poetry that is recorded and Subhanallah she was known as a poet. She accepted Islam as I've made mention of she was one of the first few to accept Islam, and also when the Hydra was permitted to Medina. She was also one of the first to have made the hegira May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us in every way, she left everything behind in Makaton, mocha Rama and she went out in the hedgerow everything she did not mind. She was a person who used to say that
if I have to do something, if it's for the sake of Allah, I don't mind what I have to endure in its path. I will get it done Subhana Allah, so whatever was for the sake of Allah, she was happy and she did it. The hegira for the sake of Allah with a smile she did it why she knew I'm leaving materialistic items behind, but this is going to please Allah, I'm gone.
So plan Allah. So it is reported that the Battle of offer took place, and Sophia Binti Abdulmutallab was one of those who witnessed the battle, like we said, the women used to come across, they used to quench the thirst of those who are fighting and so on. And at the same time, they helped morally and in various other ways. So when she saw the machine coming towards Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, this was right at the end of the battle. As debatable. A worm was now there with Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, she rushed forth through the enemy lines. They were a few left and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam saw her coming. And he says, oh, babe, look at your mother. Be careful. Make sure she does
not see your uncle, your uncle meaning
the Hamza, not the muttalib. So Roberto says, Oh, my mother, Mohammed, Salah Salem is telling you to stay away. She says, Why should I stay away? Not in defiance, but trying to say I'm strong enough I can. So Mohammed Salah Salam looked and saw that she was really, you know, she was so strong in her intention. So he says, It's okay, let her through. She came through and she started asking, and the next thing she sees Hamza, going towards Hamza, and the prophet SAW Selim had already warned her to say, Look, he has been mutilated, don't even go there. She says, No, may I, she got the permission. And when she went, she says, oh, messenger, I will be a patience. And I know Allah will reward me
for what I have endured through my life. I know it. She had endured so much, but she always said, no matter what has happened today, my brother, the one I grew up with, I will endure witnessing what I am witnessing today. And I asked Allah to reward me for the suburb and the patients that I am bearing Subhana Allah, who had just been lost.
It was Hamza bin Abdul muttalib. Her brother. She was an orphan child meaning at a certain age the age of nine. She lost her father. She was young
And as she grew up, she had memories of her brother and so many different things and now here he is mutilated. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant the sole protection here.
She was very patient she made she made a great deal. So hon Allah to Mohammed to Allah subhanho wa Taala but there is a story we will end with inshallah, and that is the Battle of duck. When the trench was dug around Madina, munawwara Muhammad Salallahu Salam always used to take the women and children and put them into a little fortified area. So during the Battle of conduct, the men were all busy near where the trench was dug in various other places surrounding Madina munawwara and what happened to the women and children, they were placed into the fourth belonging to Hassani Bonita, but it was the strongest and the best of all the forts that existed in and around Madina munawwara.
So they were all there, and the men had gone. So Sofia, Binti, Abdullah Talib notices that there is a man from amongst the enemies, who is lounging around here, he's coming he's walking in, he's trying to look, he doesn't know that we are in here. But definitely He must be wanting to see as a spy, whether there are men here, and from the top of the fort, she could see this man. So she decided, you know what, we're not going to let the enemy think that we all alone here, because they might come in, they might. And the enemy here meant those from amongst Banana, banana deer and so on, who had broken the Treaty on that day. You know, banana, the banana Kanaka and the others. They
had a treaty with the Muslim in, they broke the treaty because they thought this day the Muslims are not going to win. So they wanted to harm the Muslims from inside. So one of these men from banana did he was he was trying to harm the Muslim in spying on them. So she decided to do something. What did she do?
She took a poll. And she held it. She opened the door slightly. She waited to see where the man was when he was in a proper position where she could swipe at him. She hit him with that pole, the man dropped. She hit him again and again. And then she took his body.
And she threw it down the fort in a way that it landed in Burnaby. They saw this dead body or a part of it some hannula. And they said whoa, that means there's some men and some strong people in that lesson. So they didn't dare go close to that place again. So Pamela, so it is reported she was the one who fought in the Battle of conduct in a different way to protect the women and the children who were in the fort. And this was Sophia Binti Abdullah palabra de La Hoya and her great Sahaba, one of the great women who were blessed to be amongst the companions of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, she passed away in the 20 hegira. The time of the Allahu age was 73. Remember, she was just one year
older than Mohammed salatu salam, and she is buried in Bachir in Madina munawwara May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant her paradise and every single one of us was Allah Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhan Allah Subhana Allah homovanillic the shadow Allah Allah hi Lance Ernesto Furukawa to boy Nick
