Salam ala

00:00:09--> 00:00:51

Sayidina Muhammad Ali he will savage Marine, my beloved brothers in Islam Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu welcome for the third installment in our what's Islam elearning the women around the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we begin this lecture on a bit of a somber note. We would like to pay our respects to our motorhome, the former president of the MTC, Mona son, Hendrix rahimullah passed away a few days ago, we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala, to accept from Milena the years of service that he has done not just for the Muslim community in Cape Town, but across the world. And Mona, we all know was very, very vocal, and very passionate about justice,

00:00:51--> 00:01:29

equality, for all and in particular, for our brothers and sisters in Palestine. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah, that we will live to see in our time, justice and equality and peace in the Holy Land. I mean, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to elevate mowlana to grant that he's probably a place of the gardens of Jenna, but he may be admitted into the highest levels of Jenna. I mean, and Allah subhanaw taala plays sober, and peace in the hearts of the family members that he has left behind Allah make it easy for them. And for all those who are going through hardship mala make it easy, I mean, also hamdulillah we are in the beginning of the first 10 days of the month of the hijab, the

00:01:29--> 00:02:12

12 months of the Islamic year. And these are very, very holy, holy days. These days are on par or if not even holier than the last 10 nights of Ramadan and therefore requires from us a degree of you know of extra exertion in Nevada, the prophet SAW Selim tells us that there are no days greater in the sight of Allah then these 10 days and that no deeds are rewarded more than in any other time of the year, other than in these 10 days. There is no deed that is done in these 10 days that has a greater reward and the Sahaba Ostia Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, even jihad, any response, even jihad, that except for a man who goes out in Jihad feasability Allah and he goes with his life and

00:02:12--> 00:02:55

his property and he comes back with neither meaning he dies or Shaheed only a Shaheed gets a higher reward. So what this hadith says that outside of Ramadan when one strategy one is in the path of jihad, obviously the reward is huge. But small deeds, even small deeds of ibadah done in these 10 days are rewarded so much that one even gets a higher reward a greater reward than a movie loved reward by loss of data. So this is a bonus bonus time in these 10 days we should try and maximize as much as we can in terms of ibadah for example, what can we do? So one Hadith mentions that the one we should increase in the Hillel making La ilaha illa Allah increase in speed saying Allahu Akbar,

00:02:55--> 00:03:35

Allahu Akbar, the Hamid Subhana, Allah to Hamid meaning of hamdulillah and this bs panel up so as much as car on the tongue as you can, the reciting as much Quran as you can. These are Hadith of the prophets of Salaam fostered these nine days before the up until the day of eight. And of course, if we can, this is a great great reward, the reward of fasting sooner fasting is highly rewarded, let alone in these 10 days. Then, if we cannot force all nine days, then at the very least, we should fast, the ninth of the ledger, meaning the day of the day, woof. The day in which our judge will be on our farm We ask Allah to accept from all our projects from around the world. They have the

00:03:35--> 00:04:13

strength and a longer asked him to complete the agenda may be accepted for us who are not fortunate enough to go on Hajj, what we can do and what we all should do and what every one of us must strive to do. And put the Nia in that we will do insha Allah is at the ninth of the hijab, we fasting that day, we have to force this day, because the reward of that day is that Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives two years of sin two years last year, let's say for example, all the sins of 2017 all the sins of 2018 all of it forgiven Subhana Allah who can Who can forget he would like that. So fasting Of course. And as much as good as we can make another great soon Of course to be done in these 10

00:04:13--> 00:04:54

days is the sacrifice is to quarterback, the Khubani. So even insha Allah as the near to corbon. One of the great Sooners to do and one of the in fact in some other areas like the Hanafi madhhab It's a wajib that the one who can afford to corbon should go back and it's something that we should all try to do. And if you'd like to put a ban as well this message will handle Islam we are offering the Quran services you can respond to us and inshallah Allah will assist you in that regard. Just something to bear in mind here that if you do have the intention to slaughter Quran, then you should not cut your nails or remove any hay from your body up until the slaughter of your of your animal.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

This is the type of mini harem that we go in, you know as we go through these 10 days today

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

remind ourselves, the sanctity and to remind ourselves, of course about about Hajj and what the judge will be going through. So in sha Allah, we make the other the last panel accepts from us, we do as much better as we can, I mean, getting back to our course, while hamdulillah so we spoke about last week we're talking about the meeting of hadia are on the line with the prophets of Salaam. And how Khadija basically employed the Prophet peace be upon him as a manager, and this business relationship turned into a romantic relationship. You know, even back then, these things happened while hamdulillah and Khadija rhodiola, and how she was the best of the women of kurush. And she

00:05:36--> 00:06:14

noticed in the man, this man, the prophet SAW Selim, 15 years younger than her, what his qualities were, and she fell in love with him. And she proposed to him and Alhamdulillah they got married, Khadija was 14 years old, the prophets of Salaam was 25 years old. And they would remain married for another 25 years. So they would remain in you know, as husband and wife for 25 years. And in these 25 years, and I said we could basically split these 25 years up into two, the first 15 years, that is before the Prophet became a Navy. And the 10 years after he attained Prophethood, two very different types of life that they had. So we're going to talk in general this evening about those

00:06:14--> 00:06:50

first 15 years before the Prophet received the revelation. And these were the happiest years of the prophets of Salaam, the happiest years for her DJ as well. This is the years where they were living together. They had their children and they had a you know, they both their household, and well hamdulillah these were the best years for the prophets of Solomon, the BCS Khadija so let's talk about this the household of Egypt, we see that Haji Jara delana. She came into the marriage already she had two kids from previous marriage, so she had two kids. And while hamdulillah even at the age of 40, she would be the Prophet sallallahu sallam, seven children. And it's very important for us to

00:06:50--> 00:07:29

know who are the kids, the children of the Prophet peace be upon him. As I said before, the Prophet sallahu wa sallam reminded his oma to respect and love his family, very important for us. If we want to love and respect the family, we should at least know who they are. So let's ask ourselves Do we know the children of the property Sharon? How many kids do you have the Prophet peace upon him? He had eight children in total, eight in total, seven from Khadija and one right at the end. At the end of the series, we'll talk about the last one that was born to the prophets of Salaam, the seventh to her deja vu were they so we have the prophets of Salaam with Khadija he had seven kids, three boys,

00:07:29--> 00:08:11

four girls, three boys, four girls, the boys, the names were Allah Qasim and from this name, the prophets also lamb takes his record his patronymic with Kenya, he was Abu al Qasim I will cost him I will cost him this was the eldest of his sons and cost him then he had a son a ball here, the pure one. And he had a son, Abdullah Abdullah, so three boys and these boys that were born to adgm they, you know, within the first couple of years of the life, they weren't much older than they were either infants, babies or toddlers when they passed away, very difficult, obviously, for both the provinces element Khadija to experience the loss of of a child, but provinces are all his sons would

00:08:11--> 00:08:48

die. Basically as kids this is one of the things that Allah subhanho wa Taala. You notice that the prophets also numbers and also as a means to protect our oma to show that Nobunaga that Prophethood ends with Avi Salaam, it's not something that will be hereditary and will not continue after him because he is the final of the messengers. So all his boys passed away, as, as youngsters as children, we should know, the four daughters so three sons and four daughters, these four daughters, they will all grow up, they will all be matured. They will all get married. So let's talk about the four daughters of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He had his eldest daughter Her name was Xena, and

00:08:48--> 00:09:03

name was Zeynep and she married a man called Oblast. We'll talk about this marriage in sha Allah, then the second daughter to the province of Solomon. Khadija was Rukia rupiah who married say North man. Then we have the third daughter,

00:09:04--> 00:09:46

who was also married to a man along the line. We'll talk about that as well. And then of course, the final the baby process of them the youngest daughter, Fatima, Fatima, Zahra homedics, a nanny of your lawn. So these were the seven kids of Khadija, three boys four girls and pass him Abdullah barrhead. Zainab Rukia and Fatima then the prophets of Salaam also would have one last son Ibrahim with our mother, Maria, Maria, the Coptic lady, that last one of the last women will talk about insha Allah in our CD so these will be the eight kids the children of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Now usually at Burano Islam, we give out prizes. This is our sumaiya. Unfortunately, this is not

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

live. So what I would do is to ask, Can anyone mentioned the grandchildren of the Prophet Salaam is a bit of a higher grade question the grandchildren of the prophet SAW Selim, and maybe you can pause and think for yourself, who are they

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

Trying to work it out. And insha Allah, you could have hit up points in that. But let's talk about the grandkids or the problem. Most of the time when I ask people who the grandkids of the prophets of Salaam they would say, Hassan and Hussein and I, the prophets of Salaam. He had eight children, and he had seven or eight grandkids, seven or eight grandkids. And who are these grandkids? So we said all his boys died, so none of them had children. His daughters grew up and they had kids. So each daughter, let's go through them one by one. We said Zainab, the eldest daughter married a man of loss. And they had two children together, they had a son called ID, and a daughter called Mama, a

00:10:40--> 00:11:18

daughter, Mama. Mama, not a very common name. But if you know someone who Mama, growing up, I had a neighbor, sister by the name of Mama, and this is the name of the granddaughter of the prophet SAW Selim. And it's a beautiful Hadith where the Prophet peace be upon him, was praying. Salatu is the Imam in the masjid and he's leading the Salah, and he's keeping his granddaughter mama in his arms, a little girl, she wants to be with a grandfather and he keeps her in his arms. And as he goes down into June, he places on the floor and then he picks her up again, beautiful Hadith. So Ali and Oh, mama to sign up. Then Rukia who married say North man, they had a son called Abdullah Abdullah

00:11:18--> 00:12:00

Abdullah Abdullah then unconsumed she had no kids, so she did not pay any children. And then Fawlty might have to learn how to meditate nalli they had four children and for all five children, depending on how we count them. So we know that they had a son, they had two sons, Hassan and Hussein, the two grandsons, the professor lamb, Hassan Hussein, and they had two daughters. There was a nap. And there was an enclosed room. There was a nap and Uncle film. So Fatima nine, two of the daughters of the two other sisters, the Zainab, who would be you know, would grow up and she'd be very famous. She was raised basically the sons of Hussein after her saying Robin passed away.

00:12:01--> 00:12:36

This granddaughter, the Lamb would be, you know, one of the last remaining members of the household with professors alum and Uncle whom many years later, she would actually Madison normal on the line. So we'll talk about these things as we go along in Sharla. In this discussion, Lisa mentioned that Fatima also had a young son who passed away called Marcin, so that has been Hussein and Marcin whether he was born or he or she miscarried, Allahu Allah. So these are the seven children the children are the prophets of Allah, and the and the grandchildren of the Prophet sallahu wa sallam. So as we can see, the prophet household basically will fold with, with the young ladies, a lot of

00:12:36--> 00:13:14

girls in the house, Khadija and her three daughters from a previous marriage, plus the four girls, they grew up the province also love being a loving father, you know, very fond of his daughters spends a lot of time you know, with them a lot of time with Khadija even you know not only because I use them even in this time in this period, Xena grows up and she actually gets married. So the Prophet peace be upon him, you know, puppies, his daughter for marriage, he gives a as we would say, Give her off in marriage. And we what we know about this marriage, there's a beautiful moment in this marriage when her deja rhodiola and how she has a private sort of one on one with her daughter,

00:13:14--> 00:13:52

as mothers usually do with the daughters. And as a wedding gift, she gives her enough a necklace, mother's necklace, vanilla, could be a necklace of the Prophet peace upon him gave Khadija as an anniversary present some kind of present and the teacher gives us to sign up, you know as a wedding gift and this is Nicholas inshallah we'll talk about it in a minute. It comes back, you know, later on in the life of the Prophet subtle, solemn. In addition to Khadija, previous with the kids of the previous marriage, and the seven children that were born to her regeneron salaam, the household also had two very special young men. They were two very special young boys that got to be raised and they

00:13:52--> 00:13:58

live in the household of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and who are these two boys? The first being a leader of the alarm,

00:13:59--> 00:14:36

the alarm, he is the cousin of the processes and they are first cousins. Now the Prophet peace upon him we said that he his parents had died he was an orphan, and therefore he was raised by an uncle called Abu Talib. Abu Talib was the uncle and he raised the prophets of Salaam. So when the Prophet peace be upon him now married Khadija. And he was financially secure. Of course, what he said was a very wealthy woman. You know, things were a little more a little easier. The prophets also went to his uncle and he said, Look, my uncle, you know, I can never repay you for what you've done. You took me in you look after me. You raised me. How can I repay you? The only thing I can do the best I

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

can do is allow me to do for you one of your kids what you did for me, meaning let me take one of your kids and let me raise him. I would like to raise him as a as an honor to you makeovers. Pamela, look at this. The mentality of the man that the problem was this was before he was an elite just from himself, the human being that he was, so I would thought he was a man who had a big family and not much wealth. So he's

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

This is my son, Ali, the youngest of them take Ali and raise him. So the Prophet would really say Nally or the Alon, and that's why I say nearly basically, you know, in terms of a father, so the Prophet peace upon him was like his father. But then there was another young boy in the household of the prophets of Salaam, and his name is Ziad inheritor and the Sahaba zayde. We don't know him as well as we should. He has a very, you know, he has a massive, massive honor. He has an honor, that no other companion, you know, none of the companions had not aboubaker not virol not a DJ. None of the companions has the honor that Zaid has, what is that honor? Allah subhana wa tada mentioned

00:15:41--> 00:16:18

zayde by name in the Quran is mentioned by name in the Quran. This is the only companion was mentioned by name Zaid, and we'll talk about how this has wide happened. It will come up in our series in sha Allah. So this young boy is eight. How did he come to be in the household of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? They, he was a young boy, he lived with his family in in the northern parts of Arabia. He was a free free man, a young, you know, free man. So his mother took him on a journey. They were in the desert, they were traveling somewhere, and a group of bandits attacked them. And they, they stole him as a young boy, they robbed him and they stole this boy, they stole

00:16:18--> 00:16:55

him. And they made him a slave. So he was taken as a slave. And you can imagine the fear of a young boy being kidnapped, maybe I mean, he's like eight years old, nine years old. He's been kidnapped, and he gets sold by merchants. And eventually he finds itself in Makkah. Now he's standing the in the market, amongst all the slaves. Now this was, you know, you know, in our day hamdulillah this issue of slavery is long gone, and it will discuss slavery and Islam as well when we get to that, you know, sections. So we would have in the market, people selling dates and people selling gold and silver and people selling people, people selling slaves, so hard to learn how she was in the market.

00:16:55--> 00:17:34

This was days before maybe a day or two before her manage to the province or seller. And she was looking in the market. She was going to buy a present. She was looking to buy presents for her new groom, her husband and wife they exchange presents on the wedding day. So she was buying presents. And she came to find out that her her new groom to be Mohammed doesn't have a slave. He doesn't own any slaves. So she wants you to give him as a gift, a slave and she comes to the market and she finds this young boy, Zaid must have been trembling must have been so scared. And she took a liking to him as we said the harita had an eye for goodness See, she could see you know, goodness in

00:17:34--> 00:18:12

people. And so she took this young boy she purchased him and she gifted z to the prophets of Salaam and she said this is a slave for you. Zaid and he will be your your slave and basically what you would do your slave would you know they would work with you they would come with you that teach you things they would they would be always in your company. The Prophet peace be upon him, of course never own slaves. And when he got Zaid as a gift, he didn't take Zaid as a slave rather he took him as a son and the fact that Zaid is an orphan. And the Prophet himself is also a lamb is an orphan. There was this deep, you know, affliction of the Prophet headframe. So the Prophet nurtured Zaid and

00:18:12--> 00:18:52

he looked after him and train them and they grew up being a young man in the household of the prophets of Salaam. So much so that a few years later when Zaid was now you know, an adult basically, the zetes father comes to Makkah Nzs father bumps into sate and realizes this is my son. This is my boy that was lost all these years and this father has been searching for many years we sent so this father comes with an abyssal Salim and he says, Yeah, Mohammed, again, the Prophet peace of mind is gonna be at ease. And you know, he's just a man, he hasn't received revelation. So this man says to the prophets of Allah, Muhammad, this boy of mine, his lady was stolen from me,

00:18:52--> 00:19:29

I've been searching for him for four years, four years, you know, been looking for him, name, your price, whatever you want, I will pay for him. And, you know, sell him back to me. The purpose of selling them, you know, smiles and says to this man, this aid is not here as a slave is not here by force. And he says to say, if you'd like to return to your family, you'd like to go there with all my blessings go. And Zaid says to his father, you know, we all respect but I don't have any father other than this man, this man will have met this is my father, he raised me and I would not want to be with anyone other than him. You know, what, what a shock. This man says I want to stay out rather

00:19:29--> 00:19:59

be you know, in all intents and purposes, technically legally, his life. And he says I would rather stay this man's slave into go home and be freed and now we can imagine the kind of father he will if this is how he treats, you know, his slaves, he treats the people around him. And people couldn't, you know, you know, they would never want to be away from him. This shows you that HELOC and the character of this man. So when Zaid says these powerful words, this profound statement, the prophet SAW, some is moved, and he takes his aid by the hand and he walks to the center of town which the Kaaba you know, the three

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

maca is the cabin and put the TV on we'll see the millions of pajamas you know, you know descending upon maca. So picture this 1500 years ago, the prophet Zaid by the hand and he calls he makes an announcement he says oh could I? Everyone listen up pay attention I want to make an announcement. So everyone gathers around what's Mohammed gonna say? And he says, By Allah I sway from today on this young man is my son I've adopted him as my son. And from now on no one will call him Zaid, even he had etha Zaid, the son of hanifa. Rather, you will call him Zaid, the son of Muhammad, and the junior Sahaba. The youngest harbor like even a bus they would say we in fact, never knew that zeds

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

real name was at Biharis out because we always used to call him Zaid, the son of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, they had a nickname he would never be the, the Beloved of the prophets of Salaam. So, so these were the people that really were the inner circle, the intimate members of the household of the provinces I love his his daughters, Ali and Zane, and something just to think about that. The four daughters of the Prophet Solomon would be known for the righteousness, the chastity, the piety, the devotion to the deen, the love for charity, the sacrifices that are made for the deen and then of course, we have these two men, Allie and Zaid, and they they stand out amongst the Sahaba as

00:21:21--> 00:21:57

being, you know, the leaders of the generation. And in fact, the leaders when it came to piety, the leaders when it came to jihad, in particular jihad, you'd find that the the knowledge of dealing with the bravest of Sahaba, they would be the ones that were in the frontline. Now we asked who taught them how to fight, who taught them how to write how to use an bow and arrow, they learned this from the prophet SAW Selim. So we find this chivalrous, brave, this masculinity that came from the prophets of Salaam. And we find the softness in his character in terms of his daughters and the way he raised them. The honor and the dignity and the way in which these the kids around the

00:21:57--> 00:22:41

prophets of Salaam gives us an insight into into the kind of man that he was. So hamdulillah 15 years go by, and the bond between the Prophet Solomon Khadija is very deep, this love is a fiction, his kids are growing up the province of Salaam for all intents and purposes, he's come a long way. He's raised himself up from being an orphan, being inverted commas, you know, an unknown person in society to becoming a very prominent is a wealthy man is a well respected man. He's a well loved man, a well trusted man. The people of society see him as a future leader in the tribe. But the prophet SAW Selim goes through some sort of depression. He goes through, you know, he's about 40,

00:22:41--> 00:23:06

when his late 30s. And he feels empty. He looks at life and he feels Is this the purpose of life? You know, are we just here to live, to have kids to continue on when we die? Why are we here, he began going through this internal crisis. And this became so profound, that he felt the need to go on what we call a spiritual retreat, he would ask, you know, permission from his family, you would ask her

00:23:07--> 00:23:44

for her permission, if he could, you know, leave for a week or two, initially, and just spend some time in the mountains, in the caves in Mecca, thinking and contemplating about the meaning of life. Now, when the professor asked her this, she immediately agrees, and I paused for a second, I say to him an hour when I get to the spot, I say to our people, you know, imagine I tell my wife, you know, my love, you know, I feel like I'm going through hardship, you know, work is getting to me, life is getting to me, I need to ponder around the deeper meanings of life, give me a week or two, and it gets over a month away from the family. So I can just think, who the wife would say, I'm sure most

00:23:44--> 00:24:21

of us our husbands or wives will tell us if you need a week away from home, to gather your thoughts. I need a lifetime or I need a year to get away. No ways you can't go. Right. The prophet SAW Selim, he, when he tells her deja, he is going through this internal crisis, she immediately tells him go and do what you need to do. Because she knows her husband, she knows him better than anyone else. And she knows that he does not make any requests. He's not looking for holiday. He sees this in in what he's asking. And this is something deep inside of him profound. So she gives him you know, the encouragement, the support, she tells basically, my love, if this is what you need to do, you're a

00:24:21--> 00:24:59

man of honor, go and reflect and contemplate. And if you're searching for answers, go out there and you have my blessing, she would pack for him, you know, whatever you need. So initially, he would go for a few days away, then these retreats would get longer and longer, to the point where he was actually staying away for an entire month, basically in contemplation. And he would stay in the caves in Arabia, outside of Mecca. And sometimes Khadija, you know, after a couple of days went by or equal to, she would miss him and she would feel, you know, does he have enough provisions? So she would personally you know, get some goods together, and she would carry this herself to the cave to

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

meet him.

00:25:00--> 00:25:36

Bring him some extra provisions just to say, you know, we miss you, but take the time that you need. So the prophets of Allah was 40 years old, her deja 55 years old. And the Prophet peace upon him was in one of these retreats, you know, contemplating the meaning of life, searching for answers. He was in the cave called the Cave of hair up outside of, you know, you know, on the boundaries of Makkah, looking at the cabin, looking at life, looking at the slaves, looking at how the rich abused the poor, looking at these people who are worshipping idols, and he was asking these deep, deep questions. When he found an answer. He became a way this was in the month of Ramadan. While he was

00:25:36--> 00:26:14

in the cave in contemplation, he realized he was not alone. He felt there was a presence within there was someone else with him in the cave. And this would be Allah subhanho wa Taala, sending him a message and his life would change. And in fact, the world would change this moment is a turning point for the entire world. If you're listening to this, in Subhan, Allah we're talking about something that happened 1500 years ago, but one one and a half billion people who, who profess the Islamic faith and the entire, you know, world that is affected by this, this faith was changed on that moment when the prophets of Salaam was 40 years old. And he encountered you know, a presence in

00:26:14--> 00:26:33

the cave with him. And when he received the revelation and became a prophet, we talked about that in sha Allah in our next episode, join us and if you have any questions, concerns, comments, mail us on with [email protected] send us a message through the the WhatsApp line, and I hope to join you again to psychologically sermonic martial law.
