Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:15 --> 00:00:28

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam o Baraka, albaraka, Allah Nabil ramatuelle houda Mohamed el amin, what Allah Allah He was so happy he Athena here in Oman Toby ambition in Isla yo Medina.

00:00:30 --> 00:01:14

All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household and all his companions May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless them all. And may He bless every single one of us. I mean, my brothers and sisters, a beautiful evening where we are discussing the last two from amongst the 10 who were told that they are from Paradise during the lifetime of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the first being Abu Zubaydah, amuro, blue Java. He was a man who had accepted Islam at the age of approximately 28. And he was a man who was very good looking one of the three who was extremely good looking from amongst the companions of

00:01:14 --> 00:01:28

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whereby they actually say, it was so pleasant to look at him and to talk to him because not only was he good looking, but he had good character and conduct as well from the very beginning.

00:01:29 --> 00:01:45

May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who develop our character and conduct sometimes when we speak to a person we feel that this person is really worth speaking to. And this is what is meant here, when we talk about obey the hammer of ninjalah.

00:01:46 --> 00:02:38

If you look at his name, he was known as aborto bayda. But his first name was actually Amira and his father's name was Abdullah. So although he was commonly known as about obey De La Jolla, he was actually Ameer Abdullah Al Jazeera. That was his name. And he was known as Amina Mojave Hill oma, the trustworthy from amongst my oma the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had called him amino Javi. Hill oma, the trustworthy of this oma, this does not mean that the others were not trustworthy. But what it does mean is, it was one of the credentials that he had one of the points of virtue of Abu Zubaydah was that he was granted a title by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam,

00:02:38 --> 00:03:22

that none of the others were granted at the Battle of ahead. He did very well. He was one of those who had stayed with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and tried to defend him to the degree that when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam was injured, and he had gashes on his cheeks on his face sallallahu alayhi wasallam. There was there were pieces of the weapon that had remained in Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his face and Abu Zubaydah was the one who took these little shrapnel pieces out of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam his face, It is well known that he was the one who took so much care, that whilst he was removing them with his teeth, he actually lost two of his

00:03:22 --> 00:03:46

teeth. This is how severe it was. And this is how careful this man was when dealing with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the Battle of bud or just prior to what had happened was something that is not very easy to mention, about Obrigada. As he was in the battle, there was a man who really tried to fight him and tackle him. And this man happened to be his father.

00:03:47 --> 00:04:36

His own father tried to kill him in the Battle of battle. So aboard obey that tried to avoid him, but the father kept on coming for him. So in defense, he overcame his own father, and he did not mean to actually execute his own dad, but in defense, the father lost his life. May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us goodness, one of the stories that is very, very high in terms of the status of this man about obey the hammer of new Jarrah was that in Madina munawwara, one of the groups of the Christians had come through to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, from Iran. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked by them saying, Please send one of you, with us to come back

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

with us to our area, in order to teach us and in order to be a judge in whatever disputes we may have, and so on. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this was the first part of the morning, he said, Come back to me in the evening, and I will send with you a man who is strong, and he is the trustworthy of my alma. So I'm going to miss

00:05:00 --> 00:05:40

Fabiola Han Who says I heard this, and I was very interested, I was not interested in being sent but I was interested in being known with these qualities that were made mention of. So I was early for Salah to her, and I sat there with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam very near him. And then after Salah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam look to his right, and he looked to his left, and he says, I put my neck up so that he could see me you know that Omar is here so Han Allah, Allah grant us ease. And then Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says Where is Abu Zubaydah Subhana Allah and then he appointed about Aveda, and he told him go with these people. Be just and fair.

00:05:40 --> 00:06:22

Teach them goodness. And remember, you are a person who I consider the trustworthy of this Omar sama. Allahu anhu says that as much as I knew that, yes, Subhana Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loves us all. But it was on that day that I learned the credentials of this man about obey the hammer of natural law. He was one of the first who had accepted Islam. It was this group that accepted Islam right at the beginning that made up the 10 who were told that you are from Paradise. Imagine one day Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was seated and suddenly suddenly he just said Abu Bakr is from Jana. Omar, you are from Paradise, Earth man. You are from Paradise Island. You are

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

from Paradise Zubaydah you are from Paradise palha you are from Paradise, and so on. And he continued until the 10 names were mentioned and Subhana Allah Abu Zubaydah was one of the names.

00:06:35 --> 00:07:14

So who was instrumental in him accepting Islam, it was none other than Ababa Casa de la and he was a man initially, he went to all his friends and he convinced almost all of them, those who are close to him, they knew he was an honest, upright man. So he convinced them how many of us would ever be able to speak to the close friends of ours, or business associates of ours to convince them to do something right when they are doing something wrong? May Allah subhanahu wa taala strengthen us many of us. When we are cheated along in our wrongdoings, then we consider such a person a friend. So when I'm doing wrong and someone says Well done, well done, he's my friend. That's what we think.

00:07:15 --> 00:08:00

Not realizing a true friend is he or she who tells us what we have to hear, who tells us what we need most desperately to hear, even if it means they have to correct us in a way that we feel bad. The fact that they felt for us, makes us genuine friends of ours. May Allah subhanahu wa taala help us recognize the few genuine friends that we have that stand by our side correcting us, rather than a city full of people who may be hypocritical, who try to come to us to befriend us through through making us do even more wrong after they know we've done wrong. May Allah protect us all. This was the same men when it came to suceava to benissa after the death of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa

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

sallam, Omar Abu

00:08:02 --> 00:08:46

Abu Bakr Siddiq Allahu anhu met with Sadiq, no rabada and the others in suceava to benissa to appoint the leader, the first person that Omar Abdel Fattah the Allahu anhu felt initially that this man would be our leader was about obey the law. He stretched his hand and he said, Oh, about obey, stretch your hand let me pledge allegiance to you as the successor of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Because Allah He is have heard Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on more than one occasion, call you the trustworthy of the oma. So indeed you will be entrusted with successorship and obey the Amira moogerah immediately turned it down. And he says, I will never ever put myself in

00:08:46 --> 00:09:31

front of a man who was asked to lead the prayers during the life of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is when the Allahu anhu agreed, and they turned to Abu Bakr Siddiq of Allah and and they pledged allegiance to him. Take a look today, you have May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us all a lesson. This man was being offered a post that was not only of spiritual value, but even have political value, and he turned it down. Today people are fighting for posts that they do not deserve. Do we realize that this man deserved the post he turned it down? Because he was honest, he was definitely a person who was trustworthy. But today the people

00:09:31 --> 00:09:59

who are not even trustworthy and do not deserve a post a busy fighting for it in a way that we lose May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us not from amongst the losers. Then at the time of the Allahu anhu something unique happened. One of the leaders of the Muslim army was known as Harley the leader of the Allahu anhu inshallah, one of the days we will go through his life as well. Brief of his life we'll get to know him a bit better. So this car

00:10:00 --> 00:10:40

The vanilla lead was such a powerful warrior that he used to win all the battles. So what happened is the people started feeling that Holly the vanilla lead is very high in rank raising him higher than he actually was. That was a fear of Amara will harbor the 11. People must not start worshipping the companions. Yes, they must respect them, they must obey instruction, they must understand that the companions are blessed. But that does not mean they rent the acts of worship to companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So fearing this Omar katabi, Allahu anhu, sent aboard obey the hammer of new JIRA to replace Holly didn't really have a loved one. And he wrote him a letter and he

00:10:40 --> 00:10:53

sent him when a boat obaidul arrived, he found that Holly did normally throw the Allahu anhu was busy in a battle. So he decided to wait until the battle was over. It was easy for him to go and say, Look, take this letter. Now you're out and I'm in.

00:10:55 --> 00:11:19

Imagine, but above obey the rule of law decided no, that's not how it works. We are not here in order to earn for this world, but rather we are here in order to prepare for the era in order to prepare for the life after this is what about obey the honorable Jarrah he used to say, so he waited when the battle was over, he went with utmost humility. He met Harley Denali.

00:11:21 --> 00:11:46

And he presented him the letter. Harley didn't actually read the letter and he said, Oh bayda Why didn't you give me this letter earlier, as soon as you came, you could have taken the reins and I would have stepped aside. He said, Oh, Khalid, I did not want to disturb you, you are very busy. And at the same time, it is not, you know, his famous statement, he says, Mazel Tov dunya and read one early dunya normal coluna Villa he.

00:11:47 --> 00:12:01

He said, It is not the power of the kingdom of this world that we want, nor do we work in order to build our world. We are all working in order to build the life after death. And we are all brothers for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. so amazingly,

00:12:02 --> 00:12:51

Khalid Allahu anhu handed over the leadership to this man, and the man got up above obey the American law. Now he was the new leader of the army, and he decided to address the people. What did he say? He said, Oh my people. This Harley Davidson, Waleed is such a high ranking companion. Such a high ranking companion that I have heard Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, don't say fun mean Sufi la Khalid is indeed a sword from amongst the souls of Allah subhanho wa Taala. As for me, I am a simple Muslim from kurush. Imagine he's a leader, but because he does not want people to lose the respect of Holly rhodiola when he says Khalid is the man, I am just a member of courage

00:12:51 --> 00:13:36

following instructions of the halifa and I am just a Muslim, and he says, Allah He, no matter what color you are, if you are better than me in piety, it is my wish to be in your skin, which means I am trying my entire life and I will continue trying to be a pious person who is conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this is what will make us better. So in a sham in the region where he was up in the northern part of the Arabian Peninsula. Abu Zubaydah became known as the leader there. He was the head of the Muslim army, and he spent a lot of time one day Omar Abdullah katavi Allahu anhu visited a sham and he decided to go to abort obey the he asked his people where is abort obey that

00:13:36 --> 00:14:16

they showed him to a little house. He knocked on the door he entered the house of abode obey the or another narration says about obey the hammer of no Jarrah met him in the masjid and took him home when he asked let me come to your house, Omar Abdullah Allahu anhu was a man who always used to be bothered about what those whom he has appointed as rulers and leaders had spent and how much they had involved in this worldly material life. He wanted them to be very transparent. So what Omar Abdel Fattah Allahu anhu did, he entered the home of our VEDA, and he noticed no furniture, nothing at all, a simple room, nothing to even light a stove to light, you know, a stove in order to cook.

00:14:16 --> 00:14:25

There were a few provisions on one side, and on the other side, he had his bedding and that's it. And he had his armor and so on in the room as well. So

00:14:26 --> 00:14:59

the Allahu asks him about Obeida, why didn't you build yourself a house like everyone else has? He says, oh, Omar, we are here in this world in order to prepare for the life after it is not this world that I want. It is the pleasure of Allah that we are in search of. This was the man so he gave up his business and he gave up whatever else there was anything over and above what he needed. He did not have this was the warrior above obey the hammer genre. So much so that at the time of Amara bill satara the Allahu anhu

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

A plague broke out in what we would call today, Jordan. That is known as a sham, the northern part of the Arabian Peninsula.

00:15:09 --> 00:15:49

A plague broke out where a lot of Muslims had died and a lot of members of the army were dying one after the other. Now, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam has taught us that if there is a plague in a certain place, and you happen to be in it, do not leave, you must be part of those who are quarantined. This is a teaching of Islam. So the plague happened to be taking so many and the news got to Mr. Malhotra, the law, and so he wrote to obey the law. And he told him Look, I have a need for you very urgently, and I want you to come to me as soon as possible. If my letter gets to you in the morning, do not let the evening come without having jumped onto your conveyance and started your

00:15:49 --> 00:16:28

journey. And if you get the letter by night, do not let the morning come before you have jumped onto your conveyance and come towards me. I am issuing you this instruction now about obey the gut the instruction and he told the people around him. I've understood what Omar will harbor the Allahu anhu once he wants to take me out of this place where there is a plague so that I can be saved. That's the reason otherwise there's no other job. But Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has instructed us not to leave a place where there is a plague. So I have to write back to Omar to say that as much as you are the Amir as much as I have to obey you when you are saying come back, but I've understood

00:16:28 --> 00:17:14

what you want. And I want to tell you that the statement of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes above yours Subhan Allah, so he stayed in that area. He was caught in the plague, and he passed away to La La May Allah subhanho wa Taala Have mercy on him. So the Allahu anhu when he got the letter, he began to cry. So the people around him asked him, Are you crying? Because Aveda has passed away, he said aboral beta has not yet passed away. But I know from his letter that very soon perhaps he too will pass away in the same plague. And then the news came confirming what Omar Abdel Fattah Allahu anhu was worried about. And Omar Abdullah satara the Allahu anhu cried so much. He

00:17:14 --> 00:18:01

cried so much. And later on, they heard of what happened on the deathbed of this man about obey the law and lesson for us all something that really confirms his status. He says, When aboard obey the armor of ninja who was on his deathbed, he called the army and the people who were with and he told them, I am going to give you some pieces of farewell advice. Listen to them carefully and stick to them and you will always be in goodness, if you understand and listen to this advice. Number one, your Salah your prayer. Number two, your Zakah be charitable. So establish your prayer and be charitable, fast correctly in the month of Ramadan and even your extra fasts. And remember when you

00:18:01 --> 00:18:44

are giving charity give over and above that which is compulsory. Then he said make sure that if Hajj is compulsory upon you, you fulfill it and ensure that you frequent the house of Allah, even in Ramadan. And then he continued he says, learn to guide one another, advise one another. Do not feel bad when people guide you and when they advise you. And then he continues to say and this is a powerful part of his statement. be genuine to your leaders and do not cheat your leaders. Those whom Allah has placed in authority over you be genuine to them. Do not cheat them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us from this, the term he used was a noose and naseeha which would mean if your lead is

00:18:44 --> 00:19:01

going wrong, correct them in a good way, but you don't have to cheat them and you don't have to be unruly, then he said Wallah he, if you have been given 1000 years to live, they will come a day when you still will have to die. This is what he says. So think about it.

00:19:02 --> 00:19:46

He says the most intelligent from amongst you are those who are most conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala the most intelligent from amongst you are those who are conscious of the day that they will meet with Allah subhanho wa Taala I think this advice is for us all it is valid To this day, where he says brothers and sisters, no matter how long your life is going to be, there will come a day when you have to die, whether it is at the age of 5060 7080 and if you really have outlived people you might live to 90, most of the companions passed away in their 60s 70s and 80s. In fact, very few of them reach their 80s May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us Yes, yet they were the best of the lot.

00:19:47 --> 00:19:59

So this was our VEDA amoureux blah blah blah law and morality manageable are the Allahu anhu turned to him, and he was the one who had let's Salatu Jenna's on this man and he told the people we have lost such a great man.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:41

Make dua for him. ask Allah to have mercy on him. One Hadith that comes to my mind regarding abodo VEDA, he asked Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam messenger of Allah, can there be anyone better than us? We have believed in you and we have struggled, we have struggled in your cause in the cause of Allah and in the past, as you can see, we believed in you and we have struggled. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Yes, there are people who will come after you who will be better than you because they will believe in me without ever having seen me. And they too will struggle May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those those who

00:20:41 --> 00:20:53

believe in Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, without even having seen Him. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us from amongst the goodness that is mentioned in this beautiful Hadith that was about obey the

00:20:54 --> 00:21:01

law, one of the 10 and the last one of the 10, a man whom we do not speak about much, sorry,

00:21:02 --> 00:21:03

sorry, didn't even

00:21:04 --> 00:21:18

fail. He was 20 years old when he accepted Islam. There is an amazing story that I must mention about his father. So our hero here is, say the bin Zayed. But his father did not

00:21:19 --> 00:22:04

meet the time when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam was given Prophethood but he had met Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam prior to Prophethood. His father's name was they did no No, no fail. Listen to this man. He was the one of the men who never worshipped idols. As he grew up, he got married, he had children, he always questioned what koresh was doing. And he went out hunting for the truth he used to ask the, the monks and the various rabbis from amongst the Jews and the Christians about their faith. And he was friends with Waka nofal, who was another man who also was searching for something besides what Quraysh was doing. And this man is Zay dibner amor, before

00:22:04 --> 00:22:43

Islam, he used to go to those who used to bury their daughters alive and he used to say don't bury her alive, Give her to me. I look after her, I'll spend on her. And it is reported that on one occasion, he actually went to one of these graves. He quickly dug it out and took this girl out before she actually died. And he was the one who used to believe that whatever Qureshi was doing was totally wrong. So one day he sat on the curb, or he sat with his back facing the Kaaba, he stood up, in fact, and he was facing the rest of Quraysh in one of their great days of enjoyment, and he told him, oh, kurush look at the sheep that you are slaughtering here, in the name of these idols yet,

00:22:43 --> 00:22:57

Allah gave the sheep life. Allah caused the rain to fall, Allah caused the plants to grow and the sheep was eating from it and grew. And now you are sacrificing the sheep in the name of the idols. Don't you have any shame? So they beat him up.

00:22:58 --> 00:23:00

Although he was a man who beat him up,

00:23:02 --> 00:23:43

sadly, the father of romagnoli hottub, who was related to him, he was his uncle, actually. And his name was Al Khattab ibnu vale, this man was Xay dibner amueblado file, and Bob was gonna fail. You see where they meet. So he beat him up and he told the youngsters of Makkah, Chase this man out of Mecca don't ever allow him back in. So the father of Seidman Zayed was chased out of Mecca. And he went out he used to come back at night quietly. And he used to meet some of these friends like what a cabin nofal and so on. And they used to discuss what Qureshi was doing but very early in the morning used to, he used to go back out of Makkah, fearing being beaten and persecuted. So this man,

00:23:44 --> 00:24:27

he once went to a sham to meet some of the monks and some of the rabbis in order to find out more about religion. So one of the rabbis told him, You are from Makkah, there is a messenger who's going to come from Makkah, you better go back to Mecca and meet him. You are upon the religion of the Prophet Abraham. And he too will be calling towards exactly the same because this man made it clear they didn't. He always used to say I follow whatever Abraham taught, I worship one God, and that's it. I follow Abraham and his marine. This is what he used to say. So the rabbi told him there is a man who will say exactly the same. Go back to Makkah, when you find him, follow Him, and understand

00:24:27 --> 00:24:41

that he is the Prophet of Allah truthfully. So this when this man was coming back into Makkah, sadly, he was killed on the road and on the path, and on his deathbed, he told those around him that look,

00:24:42 --> 00:24:55

Allah subhanho wa Taala my maker may not have allowed me to meet this man who is going to come out as a prophet in Mecca. But I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala at least my son must be from amongst those who follow him.

00:24:56 --> 00:24:59

Now, this was Syed bin Zayed, our hero, the son of Zaid.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:28

Mohammed. And what happened? Sade bin Zayed knew about this because he used to discuss this with his family members. Look what Qureshi is doing is wrong. They are worshipping idols, sticks and stones and so on. So the day that Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Hashimi al Rashid sallallahu alayhi wa sallam announced that he was a prophet of Allah and say bin Zayed found out. He rushed to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salaamu Ababa Casa de la and

00:25:29 --> 00:26:11

and he immediately declared that he had accepted Islam. And this was right at the beginning, not only him, but his wife, Fatima bentyl kappab, that the sister of Amara moussaka, the daughter of the same man who used to persecute Syed bin Zayed father. They accepted Islam together, so much so that I'm sure we know of the story where Omar el hombre the Allahu anhu A few days later came out to murder Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. That was his intention. And when he met narembeen Abdullah on the path narembeen Abdullah told him Why don't you start with your own family Look, your nephew and your own sister, meaning your sister your brother in law, they have accepted Mohammed

00:26:12 --> 00:26:17

Omar Abu Qatada, the Allahu anhu rushed he went to meet this man say the bin Zayed one of the 10

00:26:19 --> 00:26:51

and he saw the sister and you know, we spoke about the story A few days ago how Omar Abdullah Katara the Allahu anhu beat up his sister and brother in law and then when he saw the blood he asked for the the little parchments where the Quran was written on and he read Surah Taha and he accepted the faith, and he declared his Shahada with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This was the house this was the man say the bin Zayed. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness, he was the one who took part in the Battle of In fact, he did not take part in the Battle of battle.

00:26:52 --> 00:27:30

One might ask why it's a question palha ignore obey the law and say they've been said to from amongst the 10 and they did not take part in the Battle of battle. This was because just prior to bother Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam sent them on a mission in order to find something out. So they had not returned except after better. So they had gone on the instruction of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because of that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam considered them from amongst those who took part when he was distributing spoils, and he added their names May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless them and bless us all. It is reported that in the Battle of Yarmouk this man

00:27:30 --> 00:28:13

sorry, the bin Zayed he was under about obey the American law. And he says I heard about Aveda, we were only about 24,000 and the Romans were 120,000. We couldn't even see where they ended. And he says about Aveda, one of the men said, I think I'm going to die here. So if I meet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, do you have a message for him? So about obeyed I said yes, I have a message for him. Tell him that the Muslims are greeting you and tell him we have found what you promised us to be the truth. Wow, what are statements of Hana law? So sorry, demons eight says when I heard about obey, they say this about the law and on Jimmy and immediately it made us all very strong. And we

00:28:13 --> 00:28:57

overcame the Romans May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us and grant us ease and goodness. It is reported that he was from amongst those who took part in the conquest of a sham, the city and region the first there it was, it was conquered about this, say the Museo de radi Allahu anhu was a part of it. And about obaidul appointed him as a person who was in charge of Damascus. So he was the first who was in charge of Damascus. But a few days later, he went back to Abu Zubaydah, and he said, Oh VEDA, I don't want to be a leader here anymore. I want to go back and be an ordinary person with the rest of the Muslim in Subhana Allah, this was it bin Zayed. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us. I

00:28:57 --> 00:29:00

want to end with a story in the life of this man sorry dibbens aid.

00:29:02 --> 00:29:10

It is reported that later on in his life, a woman went to Marwan al hakam. Marwan Al hakam, was the leader of Medina.

00:29:12 --> 00:29:22

A woman went to him and said, you know, sorry, the bin Zayed has stolen my property. Now, that is a very, very big accusation. Sorry, the bin Zayed has stolen my property.

00:29:24 --> 00:30:00

And the rumors started spreading in Medina. That sign even said a companion of Mohammed, what a powerful man. And one of the Tim, he has Rumor has it that he has stolen something. Now you and I know that when rumors spread about good people, a lot of the times we would immediately say it's false. In fact, a Muslim should believe immediately that this is false. The minute you hear a rumor about a decent person, you tell yourself it's false. A lot of the times we don't it doesn't even affect us. But we tend to believe things because we are weak and we're lucky it results in our own downfall. So

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

In this instance, they went to say the bin Zayed and they told him this is what's happening. The people of Medina are talking some of the hypocrites are talking about you. Now he was very sad, because obviously he did not want to hurt anyone, but he needed to clarify his name because people would then say this is a companion of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and look at what he's done. So what happened is, he said,

00:30:22 --> 00:30:48

Marwan email hakam sent to him, that Lucozade you have a case to answer here. Hello, you have a case to answer, someone has accused you. So he came back he said, You know what, I have no case to answer. This is my land. And at the same time, I have a duty to be made. And that is Oh Allah. If this woman is lying, and she intends harm, take away her sight and let her die in the same well that she's accusing me of having stolen.

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

Now this is dangerous because my brothers and sisters the Hadith says it tequila bottle maloom for in the hallway Sabina obeying the law, hijab, you should be very fearful of a supplication made against you by someone you have oppressed, because there is no barrier between the law and the law. So my brothers and sisters, all of us we should be worried if you oppress someone and they raise their hands against you will law he you would be considered dead meat in our language. May Allah protect us. So this is I even said he made a dua, they say, in a short while the rains came. When the rains came, there was a flood in Atlantic and the flood had taken this woman, she had lost her

00:31:31 --> 00:32:09

eyesight. And she fell into the same well and died in the well. And that is when everyone said sorry, the bin Zayed was innocent. He did not steal the world. You see how his name was clear. So it had to take something of this nature to clear his name. May Allah subhanahu wa taala make us not from amongst those who spread rumors about the friends of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Rather we understand the human nature of every individual, we pray for them. We ask Allah Subhana Allah, Allah to grant us goodness, he passed away in Al Madina, munawwara in fact in Allah cake which is in the outskirts of Medina, he was buried in Madina munawwara in the year 51 hijiri. Now we have completed

00:32:09 --> 00:32:56

We have no excuse abubaker Omar Osman Ali rhodiola annum that's quite easy to remember palha and azubi. So talhah ignore obey the law and Zubaydah vanilla one that would be six and seven.
