Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:00:16--> 00:00:28

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam wa barik ala Nabi ramatuelle houda Mohamed el amin ala alihi wa sahbihi naka harina woman tabea home. Be sun in Isla yo Medina.

00:00:29--> 00:01:12

We praise Allah subhanahu wa taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, all his companions, his entire household May Allah bless them and bless every single one of us. My brothers and sisters, a beautiful evening here in Malaysia, and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to bless every single one of us, including those who are listening from overseas. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us the ability to learn lesson from the lives of the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who were indeed the best of hearts after the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This evening we will be looking at the life of the great Ali even Taliban rhodiola when he

00:01:12--> 00:01:59

was the fourth Salif in Islam, and he took over from us man up near Fern rhodiola when he was born in Makkah, Tomoko Rama, and he was approximately 30 years younger than Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Something interesting is the man who looked after Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after the death of his grandfather was the father of Ali, who was known as Abu Talib. This Abu Talib was the uncle of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who defended Islam and the Muslims, but he did not accept Islam himself. And he had a son known as alley even though that was Ali, the cousin of Muhammad Sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. They had a very, very good relation from a very young age. And

00:01:59--> 00:02:45

the reason is, Abu Talib went through some difficult time in his life. And there was a time when he could not afford to look after his children. So he decided to take two of the three children he had to his relatives. So he took one to Alibaba seven Abdul muttalib, who was his brother, and he told him would you look after one of my children so Allah says I will look after Jaffa, Jaffa Abbey poly. And he he then approached Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and told him would you look after one of my children and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said I will look after Ali. Ali and Ali are the Allahu anhu his age was approximately five to six years old when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi

00:02:45--> 00:03:20

wasallam began to take care of him. So he grew up with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and Khadija been to Hawaii rhodiola Anna This was amazing. They were so close. He used to follow Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam wherever he went most places that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to go they found Ali ibn Abi Talib radi Allahu anhu walking with Him as a young boy. So much so that even the Cave of Hira that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to meditate in some times ali ali would join him rhodiola and

00:03:21--> 00:04:08

so when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was granted Prophethood by Allah subhanho wa Taala Ali Vitali who loved him so much was the first from amongst the boys to accept Islam. So Abu Bakr Siddiq of the Allahu anhu was the first from amongst the men. Ali Abu Talib radi Allahu anhu was the first from amongst the boys to accept Islam and how exactly it happened. There are two versions, but both of them are quite similar in the generation, the one says that Allah subhanaw taala the Allahu anhu so Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Khadija been to Hawaii little Viola and her reading Salah, meaning worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala and he asked Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:04:08--> 00:04:50

What are you doing? So he said, I am worshiping Allah who made me and I do not worship the idols, the idols are wrong. It is wrong to do what koresh is doing. And he explained to him what Islam was and he invited him to Islam, and Ali, Vitali, the Allahu anhu accepted the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. One narration says, He said let me talk to my father and Mohammed sallallahu wasallam said you've got to think if you'd like you accept it, but I'd like you to keep it to yourself for now, because I've not been instructed yet to go and tell the others and no sooner was that said a little while later I leave now Vitaly Bharati Allahu anhu, accepted Islam. So these

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

are some of the narrations of how he became a Muslim but he was a young boy, perhaps approximately 10 years old. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us those

00:05:00--> 00:05:06

are obedient and our children as well such that when we speak to our children, they listen to us. I mean,

00:05:07--> 00:05:51

then one of the famous stories in the life of Allah, tala, the Allahu anhu was the story at the time of the hegira of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam when he was migrating to Al Madina, munawwara that night, the co founder of Quraysh, the disbelievers had plotted to kill Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam they actually sent people to encircle the house of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and Allah subhanho wa Taala instructed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam to let Ali Vitali Allahu anhu lay in his bedding. Amazing. This was something that would have put the life of someone at risk, because these people were planning to kill Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam they

00:05:51--> 00:06:31

could have stormed the house and attacked the person in the bidding, believing that it was the bidding of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But here, Allah tala the Allahu anhu immediately agreed, and he was the one on the bidding of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that night when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left the home. They did not even know that he is no longer in the house. They saw the bedding and they said he's still there, not realizing that it was olive oil on the following day. When they started to find out who was in the bedding. They realized it was actually Ali, Vitali rhodiola. And so this was one of the great sacrifices that were made by Ali

00:06:31--> 00:07:15

Vitali, BRAVIA law and at the time of the hegira of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So one might ask, Well, when did Allah Ravi Allahu anhu, go for the Hydra himself. He went approximately three days later, three days later, when the message came to him from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam via a certain companion. And it arrived there at alibaba alibaba, and he then chose to go and some narration say he was alone. Some say that he was with a group of women. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for all of us to worship Him in a way that nobody hinders us when we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala because they left Makkah to Makkah Rama due to hindrance. They were hindered

00:07:15--> 00:07:43

when it came to worshiping Allah. So they had to go to Al Madina. munawwara so Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was so close to Allah, Allah, Allah and when the co founder of Croatia saw Ali in Madrid in Makkah, they knew immediately that Mohammed Salah Salah must be nearby, and these were from the nobleman of Quraysh. They were from families that had deep roots in Quraysh, yet they were still being persecuted. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from persecution.

00:07:44--> 00:08:29

My brothers and sisters, they came a time the second year after the hegira of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam wherein Ali ibn Abi Talib radi Allahu anhu was married to the daughter of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam known as Fatima Binti Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So what exactly happened? Well, when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked him, oh, Ali, what do you have? You want to marry my daughter, but what do you have to give her in terms of a Maha? Now you and I would know that Muhammad is not a dowry in every sense of the meaning of the term dowry. It is a gift that is given from the groom to the bride. And that is something that Islam has stipulated in

00:08:29--> 00:08:59

order for us to acknowledge the status of a woman and the fact that the male is primarily responsible for the upkeep or for looking after the women and for spending on them. May Allah subhanahu wa taala make it easy for us primarily, the man is supposed to be the breadwinner. May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us ease. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew that this man does not own a home. He's not a wealthy man. He doesn't have much, but he gave him his daughter.

00:09:01--> 00:09:39

This is a lesson for us all today. When you want to get married. First thing you do is you ask the man, what do you have? What type of a job do you have? What car do you drive? Do you have a house? How much is your salary? What figure do you have? If not, we fight with the daughter and say not this man. He's not good enough, not realizing that our own fathers and I'm sure those whom I'm speaking to today, our fathers or grandfathers when they got married, they were much happier than we are. And they married those who had absolutely no house, no shoes some time. They were just honest, upright, pious people and they were people who the fathers of the girls knew that this person is so

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

honest and so responsible, that he will look after my daughter even if he doesn't have something right now, but he's a responsible man. So they let them get married. They were happier than those in our generation who look for money prior to you getting married. So how is it you will only be married at the age of 40 My beloved brother because that is when you will own a house.

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

Make it easy for us to look at the lesson of Ali

00:10:03--> 00:10:37

Baba and he married the daughter of the greatest of all. Fatima bint Mohammed radi Allahu Allah. And Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loved his daughter so much. Do you think he would have given his daughter to someone who really had absolutely nothing? According to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Ali ibn Abu Talib had a lot he had a man he was an upright youngster. He grew up with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So his character and his religion were of a very, very high level if not one of the highest.

00:10:38--> 00:10:53

This is what is to be looked at. To this day, either attacker Manta bernadina, hula, hula hoop as a widow. If someone comes to marry your daughter, they have good character and conduct and a high level of Deen. Let them get married Subhana Allah let them get married.

00:10:54--> 00:11:34

From this, we learned that those who choose to look at wealth and wealth alone and status in society and status alone. A lot of the times they Doom their daughters into Great Depression, yet they just want to save their names. That's why they got them married there. May Allah protect us. It's not always the case. But it is happening more often today than ever before. May Allah grant us the ability to see guidelines from the messenger we claim to love so much here is he this is what he did with Alibaba Vitaly, he says, oh, Allah, what do you have? He says, I have nothing. He says, oh, Ali, you have an armor, the armor that you have. What about that? He said, Yes, I do have the armor.

00:11:34--> 00:12:13

He said, Well, you can sell the armor and give the amount to my daughter. So he did not say pay me for my daughter. And you need to pay my the rest of my family and bring gifts and we need to have a night before you get married that will be even bigger than the marriage itself. And we need to start celebrating in this way. And that way. It was something so simple. He said, Oh Ali, that is the direction that is the armor. I have now married you to my daughter. And that will be the Maha that will be the amount that you will give as a gift to my own daughter. They were married. And they were the ceremony was not even what we would see today. It was something that was an agreement between

00:12:13--> 00:12:52

them. They had the witnesses that were there simple occasion. And this was one of the most blessed of all marriages ever. May Allah grant us ease. So listen to what Alibaba Talib did. He went out to the market to sell his armor. So a man of near fan who was married to the other daughter of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So these are now brothers in law, right? So he says, oh, Holly, what are you doing? He says I'm here to sell my direct to sell my armor, because I am about to marry the daughter of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Fatima this man was so happy he said can I pay you for it? What do you want? He says I want 400 Durham's. This is Okay, no problem. Here is the 400 May

00:12:52--> 00:13:36

Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us ease. He paid him a certain amount Some say 400 Some say 480 little gold coins. So that would be Danielle dinars. So what happened is, he paid him the amount and when he took the armor and the Alibaba butala, the Allahu anhu took the amount. This man up near a fan called him back and says oh Ali, this is a gift from me to you. Here is an armor you can have this man Allah. So he went back with the armor and with the 400 as well so man, Allah, and he went to give it and he told Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about what he had done, and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was so delighted and so happy. Imagine these were now family members

00:13:36--> 00:14:20

related to one another. They had big hearts May Allah grant us ease today as father will not help his own son with 400 gold coins Believe me. Today people who are married to two sisters might not even want to look at each other. May Allah Subhana Allah to Allah grant us ease. This was the love between a man and not be your loved one. They were brothers in law and they loved each other from the very beginning. In fact, Abu Bakr Siddiq Viola and there was so much of love between him and Ali ibn Abu Talib rhodiola one that during the time of Abu Bakr, Siddiq rhodiola and Ali, Vitali Viola and used to be seen walking with Him a lot of the times and when Allison who is the son of Alabama,

00:14:20--> 00:14:37

Vitaly, viola Han, when he used to be a little child, Abubakar acidic used to take him and put him up on his shoulder and walk with him and play with him. This was the relationship they had. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us a good relationship. So

00:14:38--> 00:15:00

Allah Vitaly Brody Allahu anhu. He was also from amongst one of those who have been enlisted as Allah Shara. The 10, the 10 who were told you are from Paradise. His name was the fourth name. Amazing. His name was the fourth name Abu Bakar, Rama man and Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala be pleased with them all. So he will

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

Also one of them in the same circle of people who are already told that you are from amongst those in paradise. Bear in mind he was approximately 30 years younger than Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam which makes him approximately 28 years younger than Ababa Casa de la and he was quite young. When Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away. He had the honor of doing the hustle or the the washing of the body, the blessed body of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah tala, the Allahu anhu was one of those being the cousin of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and also his son in law at the same time. So if we take a look at the children of Ali, Vitali, radi

00:15:43--> 00:16:05

Allahu anhu from Fatima rhodiola and her from amongst them were two who are very, very well known al Hassan, and Al Hussein. So the marriage occurred the second year of hegira. The third year al Hassan was born and the fourth year Allah saying was born out of the womb Jimmy and May Allah subhanho wa Taala be pleased upon all of them.

00:16:06--> 00:16:30

Olive, olive was highly educated, he was very clever, he was known as a wise man to this day. They are the quotations and sayings of the wise Ali, Vitali Allah and there are two things a lot of these quotations are accurate but some of them sometimes you have people who have find the good quotation and because of their love for Allah tala, the Allahu anhu. They added the bottom set by Allah.

00:16:31--> 00:17:10

Allah one. So it's a wise quotation, they add the words of Allah if Allah May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us the ability to be truthful. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him during his life, that Oh Allah regarding you, the people will be divided into two extremes. They will be people who will love you so much that they will raise you beyond your rank. And there will be people who will dislike you so much that they will remove you from the fold meaning they will drop you from from your rank. We are people who are in the middle. We state his credentials exactly as they are, we love him and respect him. We will not utter one word against Allah. Allah one, just as we will

00:17:10--> 00:17:59

not utter words against any one of the other companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam because it was Mohammed. May Allah peace be upon him who said la de su boo was happy for Levine fcba de la vaca had to commit la ba ma ba Marbella gamuda de molano sefa. He said, never speak bad about any one of my companions for I swear by Allah subhanho wa Taala. I swear by the one in whose hands lies my soul, I swear by the one in whose hands lies my soul, that if you were to spend the mount of hood full of gold, it would not be equivalent to a little handful of what they spent, or even half of that handful because of their level. So none of us are allowed to speak bad about any of the

00:17:59--> 00:18:41

companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because we are far far far away from them in virtue. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us even a little bit of virtue, I mean, so Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the time of revelation used to call Ali sometimes, and asked him to write because he could read and write yet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Unlimited, unlimited in a respectful way, meaning he was kept from reading and writing by the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that nobody could accuse him of having read the previous scriptures and having come with something so it is not something that one would say is a negative quality. Now it will be

00:18:41--> 00:18:46

law, but in fact, it is so positive. Allah subhanho wa Taala says on

00:18:47--> 00:18:57

that Lumia kabani kita boo, boo, boo, be me, Nika, lotta mobile,

00:19:00--> 00:19:39

phone or messenger before the sporran you are unable to read and write, had you been able to read and write perhaps those who would have liked to find fault would have found fault, but they cannot doubt because you are unable to read and write. Imagine if Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a powerful reader and writer. Perhaps they would have said that you know what he has just read the previous scriptures and so on. May Allah subhanahu wa taala protect us and grant us at least the ability to read this revelation that has come to us and learn from it. We are in the month of the Quran. My brothers and sisters ask yourselves, what is your link with this plan? So Alec Nabi Talib

00:19:39--> 00:19:59

was known as katiba ye Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he was one who used to write the revelation of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to write the Quran. Then if we take a careful look at Solihull had a BIA. We've spoken about it in the last few days. The Treaty of today BIA that had happened. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam called Ali Vitali radi Allahu Allah.

00:20:00--> 00:20:15

And told him right i'd like you to write. I would like you to write the following and the treaty was actually written by Ali Abu Talib rhodiola and, and he was one of the witnesses of that particular treaty. When it comes to the Battle of hiber. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in Hebrew

00:20:16--> 00:20:57

that tomorrow, in the night he spoke and he said, tomorrow I will give the flag I will give the leadership to one whom Allah loves and who loves Allah subhanho wa Taala so at night, people were actually thinking Who are they going to speak about? At night? They were thinking Who are they going to speak about? And they found some Hana love that. In the morning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says a gnarly you know Abu Talib Where is Ali the son of Abu Talib and immediately they knew that this man Allah loves him and he loves Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he called Ali and he says, Oh Ali, say the name of Allah and enter into this high bar enter into this fort of caliber. And

00:20:57--> 00:21:41

remember the famous statement of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah He, la de la jolla noir hidden la caminho Marina and remember that if Allah guides through you one single person, it is better for you then the most valuable of the camels that we have, you know, the top of conveyance at the time was the red camel, very expensive. Today, I wonder what we could say could we say perhaps an S Class Mercedes Benz s 650, or something of that nature? Well, everyone has a different liking. But the truth is, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says it's better for you to guide one person to what is right, than to have anything material that this world can offer you. My brothers and sisters,

00:21:41--> 00:22:19

let's stop there because it's important for us to learn a lesson. This was at the time of war. Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is telling a lie. Don't just go around killing people, no, guide them, teach them if they are guided through your effort, it is better for you imagine today you have people in the name of Islam going around killing people and saying we are following the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam it's very, very sad. Subhana Allah, how people do not learn from this beautiful statement of Mohammed salatu salam to Ali ibn Abu Talib, he says well, Allahu Allah, you know, don't just be trigger happy, learn to spread the guidance, remember to go out and guide

00:22:19--> 00:22:57

the people. Some people look at non Muslims and say these are the enemies of Islam. Whereas we are taught that you look at the non Muslims and say these are all potential Muslims some way up the ladder. Our forefathers were non Muslim as well. May Allah subhanho wa Taala use us to spread the deen and may He use us to be vehicles of the spreading of the goodness we should not be selfish with the goodness if we were taught to eradicate everyone who was not a Muslim, believe me, we would never have existed because our forefathers would have been eradicated A long time ago. They will not Muslim at some stage. So my brothers and sisters a powerful statement that from Muhammad sallallahu

00:22:57--> 00:22:58

alayhi wasallam too early

00:23:00--> 00:23:01

on and we learn from it.

00:23:02--> 00:23:41

When it comes to the time of Abu Bakr, Siddiq, Allah and many people say that earlier the Allahu anhu was upset and he did not want Abu Bakr Al Khalifa that is very far from the truth. He was one of the first to stretch his hand when he was in his home and one of the people came to him and told him Do you know what is happening at suceava to benissa? The Mahajan annoncer have set and this is what took place and now abubaker is being appointed the leader, he quickly rushed out with half of his clothing on and he went and he stretched his hand and pledged allegiance to Abu Bakr, Siddiq rhodiola and there was no dispute. Like I said, they had such a good relation that even after that

00:23:41--> 00:24:06

they used to walk together. Olive natali was one of the most virtuous of the lot rhodiola whom Jamie And may Allah be pleased with all of them. And Abu Bakr Siddiq are the Allahu anhu used to constantly ask him his opinion in so many different things. May Allah subhanho wa Taala use us also to ask those with knowledge, their opinions when we have some important matters in our own lives. I mean,

00:24:07--> 00:24:43

at the time of Omar Abdel Fattah radi Allahu anhu as well. Vitaly Brody, Allahu anhu was one of those who pledged allegiance. They had such a powerful relation. Can I inform you how powerful this relation was? When Alibaba Vitaly Mashallah he had many children, and he married multiple wives after the death of Fatima, the daughter of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she passed away approximately six months after Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam she was the last of the children of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam to pass away because all of his children passed away in his lifetime. sallallahu alayhi wasallam besides Fatima Fatima, the Allahu anhu passed away approximately six

00:24:43--> 00:24:59

months later. After that Allah Talib married the widow of Abu Bakr, Siddiq rhodiola Juan. Now if they were enemies, why would he do that? Secondly, he looked after the child of Abu Bakar as his own child, his name was Maha

00:25:00--> 00:25:45

Medina abacha he was the son of Abu Bakr Siddiq from asthma been to mace and a small Binti remains of the Allahu Allah was married to Ali Abu Talib rhodiola and after the death of Abu Bakr Siddiq, Allah on how powerful and after that he named his children as follows. One of them was Abu Bakr Ali. The other one was Omar Ali. The other one was Ali. Allahu anhu. But people don't tell us this, do they? These were some of the children of Alabama Abu Talib, he had a son known as Abu Bakr. Ali, he had a son known as Omar Abdullah Ali, do you know this melas peace and blessings be upon them all. So this was the love that they had amongst each other, but they came people later on who created

00:25:45--> 00:26:00

dispute and who created Discord. This is what we spoke about yesterday. And we said my brothers and sisters, be careful of people who come to you to create discord between you and your brethren in faith. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us ease.

00:26:01--> 00:26:43

In fact, at the time of man up near a fan, we heard yesterday that the enemies surrounded him they were muslimeen, but they will not form amongst the Sahaba when Allah tala the Allahu anhu find out found out the depth of what was happening. He sent a message to his man saying I have with me 500 of the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I can send them to you now in order to eradicate those who are trying to harm you. Yet those who are trying to harm us men were the ones who are saying that Ali should be appointed as Calif and himself he was so powerful and so just he said no ways these people are wrong. We can send the companions in order to defend the earth man,

00:26:43--> 00:27:20

this man What a great man. He even named his child after a man have now found rhodiola one man up near a fan responded to this. And he said I would not like to see the blood of Muslims being spilt because of me. I'd rather die than to see massacre amongst the Muslim in this was this was the status of Earth man up near a fan. Today people would rather see a massacre than to leave themselves may Allah protect us look at how we have converted and changed completely. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us May he protect the Muslim men who are struggling at the hands of their own brothers and sisters today more than the hands of anyone else.

00:27:21--> 00:27:59

So my brothers and sisters here we have the powerful example so much so that the Hudson Valley was so close to Earth man near a firm he was in the house of Earth man when he was surrounded. And Earth man up near a fan told him a lesson I would suggest that you leave you will be harmed. These people are getting closer every day. They are becoming more and more vocal and violent. And this is when Allison nalli Ravi Allahu anhu left the house of earthman. It is reported that he too was injured in that particular skirmish. May Allah subhanahu wa taala protect us all and grant us is my brothers and sisters. This was Ali Vitali about the Allahu anhu. I want to make mention of a few of the

00:27:59--> 00:28:01

stories of his life.

00:28:02--> 00:28:43

He once visited the graveyard. During his tenure when he was appointed Salif. He once visited the graveyard. And at the graveyard, he said a statement that was a lesson for every one of us. He wanted this to be a lesson for those who heard obviously, he looked at the graves and he asked a question to those in the graves. Obviously, the lesson was for us, but it was asked in the form of a question. He says, I want to inform you, the houses you have left have already been occupied.

Then he looked at the people and he said one lie. If these people could talk to us, they would tell us in higher Azadi taqwa the best provision that you can actually have in order to get into the grave would be the piety of Allah consciousness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. My brothers and sisters, I have a lesson from this and so do you may Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us all goodness, and may He make us from those who learn the lesson from this? Now if we take a look at another story

00:29:21--> 00:29:26

earlier, the Allahu anhu lost his armor at one stage when he was the Amir.

00:29:27--> 00:29:59

And so when he went to Kufa, he found the Jewish man selling this armor. He looked at it and he said, Hey, this is my armor. The Jewish man says No, it's mine. I'm selling it. It's in my hands. So he said no, let's go to the coffee. Now the coffee was known as Shura. Shura was a powerful coffee based in Kufa. He was appointed by Ali appointed by Ali Vitali broke the law one confirmed by him although he was there from prior to his time, but I live in Abu Talib went and sat right next to the accardi and the Jewish man was in front and he says Oh sure, a

00:30:00--> 00:30:49

Has my armor. So should I says, Oh ameerul momineen we need some form of evidence to prove that it is yours. So he says, Here are my sons and has anyone ever seen those who are companions of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, they will bear witness that this armor is mine. So sure, he says, I am very sorry, oh ameerul momineen With all due respect. A child cannot bear witness for his own father here, according to the law of Islam. So I will have to rule that this armor belongs to the Jewish men. The Jewish man was stunned. He was shocked to the degree that he said, I am so shocked. This is ameerul momineen the leader who rules so many lands and he is sitting here in front of a coffee that

00:30:49--> 00:31:28

is under him, and he has just given me this armor. He says no ways I bear witness that this is the true Dean I bear witness that Allah is one and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the messenger immediately accepted Islam. This was an incident that had occurred at the time of Allium Vitaly rhodiola when he was happy, he did not get upset with with Shariah and say I appointed you now you can leave and he did not make life difficult.

00:31:28--> 00:32:11

So the sense is and who next he says Omar Abdullah, and now the son was worried today I need my father's name somewhere. So he said, What about you? Oh, my father. He says, ma ihlara Juno mineral muslimeen. He says, I am just a man from amongst the Muslims. This is how humble he was. This is how modest he was. He says I am just a Muslim yet. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam had told him Ali you are from amongst those who already have paradise. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah bless him and bless them all. I want to make mention of

00:32:11--> 00:32:14

one last major point that has moved me.

00:32:15--> 00:32:37

He used to eat Salah at night every single night and he used to fast a lot in terms of voluntary fasts. So the people asked him or Ali ibn Abi Talib rhodiola when you are a man you know that you are from Paradise yet you are standing at night and you are fasting every day. What is it? So he looks at them and he says Safari erotica will

fire you Ella Capri he beside Elaine

00:32:43--> 00:33:22

You need to travel towards it by night well ah he this has moved me by night if you are fast asleep all the time, your journey to Paradise is going to be made more difficult. You really want to travel into paradise. Well you better start traveling by making the journey at night. Stand up in Salah for Allah my brothers and sisters I hope that can motivate myself and yourselves to read at least our tarawih correctly and to get up at least for tahajjud whilst we are busy eating for So who do you know it is the time of the Hadrian I would

00:33:22--> 00:34:06

suggest we take a moment to at least start traveling towards paradise but using that time, even if it means to engage in two units of Salah to rock out of Salah May Allah subhanahu wa taala bless us all. Allah tala the Allahu anhu was martyred. He was martyred when he was approximately 63 years old, the 40th year of Hydra by a man known as Abdul Rahman animaljam. He was a man who was dead against Alabama Abu Talib, one might ask why were they against Ali ibn Abu Talib radi Allahu Allah. one simple reason when earthman abney, a founder of the Allahu anhu was murdered. The people were divided into two groups, one of them remained with Alibaba palabra, the Allahu anhu, who did not

00:34:06--> 00:34:49

seek to penalize the murderers immediately, but he sought to deal with them in a different way. And the others had sought the penalisation of those who murdered Earth man immediately. They said, Oh, Ali, you as an amine need to penalize those who have murdered Earth man immediately. So this was the difference of opinion primarily as what to do exactly with those who have murdered or thrown up near fun. Should we deal with them now? Or should we deal with them as time passes? It was actually an issue that divided the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu. It resulted in two major groups those who were with Ali Abu Talib, those who actually were against what he was doing, but at the same time, they

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

were other disgruntled people. One of them was Abdurrahman animaljam. He bought a sword and he put on that sword a lot of poison and he sliced the belly of Alabama.

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

Talib Ravi Allahu anhu Oh, he actually pierced him with that particular sword with with the poison that he had put on it. And Allah tala the Allahu anhu passed away three days later. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from this type of fitna really people from amongst the Muslim in killing one another. This is what has caused destruction from the very beginning. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us I want to end by saying about the Allahu anhu Sahaba to jamaa in. May Allah be pleased with all these companions, may Allah be pleased with every single one of them. My brothers and sisters, it is not for us to say one word of hatred against any one of those.

superheroes. They were the superstars.
