When it comes to the time of Abu

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

Bakr as Siddiq

00:00:03 --> 00:00:05

many people say that Ali

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

who was upset and he did not want

00:00:07 --> 00:00:10

Abu Bakr's khalifa. That is very far from

00:00:10 --> 00:00:12

the truth. He was one of the first

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

to stretch his hand when he was in

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

his home. And one of the people came

00:00:16 --> 00:00:17

to him and told him, Do you know

00:00:17 --> 00:00:18

what is

00:00:20 --> 00:00:22

the Muhajireen and Ansar have sat. And this

00:00:22 --> 00:00:24

is what took place. And now Abu Bakr

00:00:24 --> 00:00:24

is being

00:00:25 --> 00:00:27

appointed the leader. He quickly rushed out with

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

half of his clothing on, and he went

00:00:29 --> 00:00:31

and he stretched his hand and pledged allegiance

00:00:31 --> 00:00:33

to Abu Bakr as Siddiq

00:00:34 --> 00:00:36

There was no dispute. Like I said, they

00:00:36 --> 00:00:38

had such a good relation that even after

00:00:38 --> 00:00:40

that, they used to walk together.

00:00:41 --> 00:00:43

Alibnu abi Talib was one of the most

00:00:43 --> 00:00:44

virtuous of the lot.

00:00:45 --> 00:00:47

Jami'an. May Allah be pleased with all of

00:00:47 --> 00:00:49

them. And Abu Bakr as Siddiq

00:00:50 --> 00:00:52

used to constantly ask

00:00:52 --> 00:00:54

him his opinion in so many different things.

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

May Allah

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

use us also to ask those with knowledge

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

their opinions when we have some important matters

00:01:02 --> 00:01:04

in our own lives. Ameen.

00:01:04 --> 00:01:06

At the time of Umar ibn Khattab

00:01:07 --> 00:01:09

as well, Alib Nabih Talib

00:01:09 --> 00:01:11

was one of those who pledged allegiance. They

00:01:11 --> 00:01:13

had such a powerful relation.

00:01:14 --> 00:01:16

Can I inform you how powerful this relation

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

was?

00:01:17 --> 00:01:20

When alibnu abi Talib, mashaAllah, he had many

00:01:20 --> 00:01:20

children

00:01:20 --> 00:01:23

and he married multiple wives after the death

00:01:23 --> 00:01:25

of Fatima, the daughter of Muhammad

00:01:26 --> 00:01:29

She passed away approximately 6 months after Muhammad

00:01:30 --> 00:01:31

She was the last of the children of

00:01:31 --> 00:01:32

Muhammad

00:01:32 --> 00:01:35

to pass away. Because all of his children

00:01:35 --> 00:01:36

passed away in his lifetime

00:01:37 --> 00:01:39

besides Fatima. Fatima

00:01:40 --> 00:01:43

passed away approximately 6 months later. After that,

00:01:43 --> 00:01:44

al ibn Abi Talib

00:01:44 --> 00:01:45

married

00:01:45 --> 00:01:46

the widow

00:01:46 --> 00:01:48

of Abu Bakr as Siddiq

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

Now if they were enemies, why would he

00:01:51 --> 00:01:52

do that? Secondly,

00:01:53 --> 00:01:55

he looked after the child of Abu Bakr

00:01:55 --> 00:01:58

as his own child. His name was Muhammad

00:01:58 --> 00:02:01

ibn Abi Bakr. He was the son of

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

Abu Bakr as Siddiq from Asma binti Umayz.

00:02:04 --> 00:02:05

And Asma binti Umayz

00:02:06 --> 00:02:08

was married to Ali ibn Abi Talib

00:02:09 --> 00:02:11

after the death of Abu Bakr as Siddeep

00:02:12 --> 00:02:15

How powerful. And after that, he named his

00:02:15 --> 00:02:16

children as follows.

00:02:17 --> 00:02:19

One of them was Abu Bakr ibn Ali.

00:02:19 --> 00:02:21

The other one was Umar ibn Ali. The

00:02:21 --> 00:02:23

other one was Uthman ibn Ali

00:02:24 --> 00:02:26

But people don't tell us this, do they?

00:02:26 --> 00:02:27

These were some of the children of Ali

00:02:27 --> 00:02:30

ibn Abi Talib. He had a son known

00:02:30 --> 00:02:32

as Abu Bakr, ibn Ali. He had a

00:02:32 --> 00:02:34

son known as Umar ibnu Ali. Do you

00:02:34 --> 00:02:36

know this? May Allah's peace and blessings be

00:02:36 --> 00:02:38

upon them all. So this was the love

00:02:38 --> 00:02:41

that they had amongst each other. But there

00:02:41 --> 00:02:44

came people later on who created dispute and

00:02:44 --> 00:02:45

who created

00:02:45 --> 00:02:46

discord.

00:02:46 --> 00:02:48

This is what we spoke about yesterday. And

00:02:48 --> 00:02:50

we said, my brothers and sisters, be careful

00:02:50 --> 00:02:53

of people who come to you to create

00:02:53 --> 00:02:55

discord between you and your brethren in faith.

00:02:55 --> 00:02:56

May Allah

00:02:57 --> 00:02:58

grant us ease.

00:02:58 --> 00:02:59

In fact,

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

at the time of Uthman ibn Affan,

00:03:02 --> 00:03:05

we heard yesterday that the enemies surrounded him.

00:03:05 --> 00:03:07

They were Muslimen but they were not from

00:03:07 --> 00:03:09

amongst the sahabah. When Alib Nabiatalib

00:03:10 --> 00:03:12

who find out found out the depth of

00:03:12 --> 00:03:13

what was happening,

00:03:13 --> 00:03:16

he sent a message to Uthman saying, I

00:03:16 --> 00:03:18

have with me 500 of the companions of

00:03:18 --> 00:03:19

Muhammad

00:03:20 --> 00:03:22

I can send them to you now in

00:03:22 --> 00:03:24

order to eradicate those who are trying to

00:03:24 --> 00:03:26

harm you. Yet those who are trying to

00:03:26 --> 00:03:29

harm Uthman were the ones who were saying

00:03:29 --> 00:03:31

that Ali should be appointed as caliph. And

00:03:31 --> 00:03:34

himself, he was so powerful and so just.

00:03:34 --> 00:03:36

He said, No way. These people are wrong.

00:03:37 --> 00:03:39

We can send the companions in order to

00:03:39 --> 00:03:42

defend Uthman. Uthman, what a great man. He

00:03:42 --> 00:03:45

even named his child after Uthman ibn Affan

00:03:46 --> 00:03:49

But Uthman ibn Affan responded to this. And

00:03:49 --> 00:03:51

he said, I would not like to see

00:03:51 --> 00:03:54

the blood of muslims being spilled because of

00:03:54 --> 00:03:56

me. I'd rather die than to see massacre

00:03:56 --> 00:03:57

amongst the muslimin.

00:03:58 --> 00:04:00

This was this was the status of Uthman

00:04:00 --> 00:04:01

ibn Affan.

00:04:01 --> 00:04:03

Today, people would rather see a massacre

00:04:03 --> 00:04:06

than to leave themselves. May Allah protect us.

00:04:06 --> 00:04:08

Look at how we have converted and changed

00:04:08 --> 00:04:09

completely. May Allah

00:04:10 --> 00:04:13

safeguard us. May He protect the muslimeen who

00:04:13 --> 00:04:14

are struggling at the hands of their own

00:04:14 --> 00:04:17

brothers and sisters today, more than the hands

00:04:17 --> 00:04:18

of anyone else.
