Mr. No hon are human 100 Now what would it mean was so there was some Allah Rasool Rahim Hamid wala early he was a he has Ryan was salam with the St. Monica Thurman cathedral marble Subhanak La Romana, Ilana and mtna. In Nikka Antonio Hakim Ravi Sally Saturday were silly Emery was locked on melissani of kaha Colleen so we continue with our series with our series called elite followers. And in the very beginning of the series, the first, the first several segments were in a way related to the wives of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Omaha mumineen or the Allahu Taala on Hoonah Jemaine the next group of people that we'll be discussing are the people who took care of the

00:01:40 --> 00:02:07

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam as well as the children of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So inshallah out of these two will be first covering that the children of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if you open up the books of Syrah, there is not much information you will find on the three sons of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which was Qasim Abdullah Ibrahim. What we do know is that that hadith God Allah Tehran has she bore

00:02:10 --> 00:02:39

Qasim in Abdullah and Ibrahim came from Maria Katya. And so, but nonetheless all these three young children or the three sons of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they passed away at a very very young age. So the four people of the children the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that there is a great amount of information available in the books are his four daughters which was first of all a year on the Allah Tala

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

Roca era

00:02:43 --> 00:03:29

Xena or the Allah Tala Anna Ruqayyah then Omen consume and then Fatima Radi Allahu Allah Anna so we find information about these about these forms. So today we'll be talking about his his eldest daughter who was Xena or the Allah Tala on her and who she was and she has a very interesting story in her life that took place and inshallah we'll get to that. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was already you have to keep in mind is that this position of commissioning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with prophet hood was not an easy task and that Allah subhanho wa Taala prepared the Prophet sallallahu it was setting them for this monumental task. And in order to do to uphold a

00:03:29 --> 00:04:11

responsibility of this type, it requires a person to have a great deal of patience. And that's why if you look at the life of a sorcerer Allahu alayhi wa sallam, there was patience to I mean, there was a loss in life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even before the Prophet came into this world, his father, of course, passed away at the age of six, his, his mother passed away when he is you know, and usually at the age of six, the kids are learning a lot at that time. And within that age, you have a young child whose mother is taken away. And then even after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is an adult, and he has children. I mean, today, there are a lot of

00:04:11 --> 00:04:55

parents who can bear the loss of one child. I've seen parents that they it takes them usually two to three years and at different times for them just to get over the loss of one child. Can you imagine Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, losing six children during his lifetime. I mean, that is a person who has the most amount of patience and the reason why he went through this is because he was the prophet of Allah. So Allah Azza wa sallam, and he had the greatest responsibility. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he would generally say, or he was heard, saying that the amount of sacrifices that I have been through, there is no other prophet who has been through this

00:04:55 --> 00:05:00

much. And that's why I mean, once again, the whole life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is

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

As a witness to that,

00:05:02 --> 00:05:45

out of all his daughters, as I said earlier that his three sons passed away at a very young age and out of all his four daughters, only one of them survived to witness the Prophet sallallahu it was sending them depart from this world and that was fought them out of the Allahu Taala on him. Now a digital the Allah Tala Anna Of course she when you remember that she got married to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the age of 40 The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was 25 years old they had or the Prophet sallallahu it was selling them was granted. Xena Brody Allah Tala Unha at the age of 30. So when he was 30 years old, so five years into the marriage he was given. He had

00:05:45 --> 00:06:28

Xena, Ravi Allah Tala Unha and Xena * Allah Allah Allah was very close to the god Allah Tala and while growing up Now you remember now of course you know that faulty model the hola Ana is the youngest of all the sisters. So it is said about xenophobia Allah Tala Unha that as she was growing up as she was growing up, she would aid and assist her mother her digital the Allah Tala on her in taking care of Fatima Rhodiola Tirana. And this is this is a practice that we see very much overseas, not so much of a practice that we see here. If you go like I have been to many of the villages, and you know, overseas and you see like young girls at the age of like seven, eight years

00:06:28 --> 00:07:15

old, they're taking care like as if they are the mother of their like baby, their babies, their baby brother or their baby sister. And you see that children at that time. Even before that they had a great deal of responsibility. So even at a very young age, they had the necessary skills that they could take care of their baby brother or their brother or their baby sister. And here in this case, zero the alota Unha was no different she was as she was helping her mother out as she grew up the books of history mentioned that habido Yolanda Lohan had taught her as a mother all the responsibilities to take care of a household and so so Zainab Rhodiola that on her she learned all

00:07:15 --> 00:07:26

of that when Xena the Allah Tala on her reached a certain age where she is now able to get married a cousin of have

00:07:27 --> 00:08:16

a cousin of hers or someone who was related to God Allah Tala Anna, his name was Ebola us in Arabia, he came around and he used to spend a lot of time with his aunt honey God Allah Tala on her. And you remember that we're talking about prior to Islam. That means, of course prior to the laws of hijab, so therefore, when a Buddha asked if another beer would come to the house of Hadith or the Allah Tala Aha, he would interact a lot with xenophobia, Allah Tala anha. So as they you know, these were two people who are growing up in front of each other, and therefore, a blossoming beer when he had reached a certain age where now he's looking for a suitable spouse. He felt like that the best

00:08:16 --> 00:08:58

person that I know in terms of nature in terms of character, it is a number of YOLO TADHANA. And so therefore, he actually came to the SU loss it Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and he asked the province that Allahu Allah, he was sending them that I want to get married to your daughter. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he asked him a few questions. And this goes to show you that if a father in law or a potential father in law does ask his potential son in law, some questions, it is not haram. Well, there's nothing wrong with that. So here the provinces I'm asked him some questions. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he entered his home, Zeno the Allah,

00:08:58 --> 00:09:48

Allah, Allah was sitting there, and he as they know, that Ebola us it will appear has come and he is interested in marrying you. What do you say? And the only thing that they end up dead, as the books of history clearly mentioned, is that she looked down, she turned red, and she had this you know, the smile on her face. And you know, based on this based on this, the football ha and the orlimar. They mentioned that when a girl is approached for the purposes of marriage, it is not necessary that she has to give a verbal consent, yes, in order to show her approval. If a girl simply is though you can generally tell a girl is willing and she is saying she's agreeing that she's willing to get

00:09:48 --> 00:09:59

married. Then if there is any kind of gesture that you see from her, then that is usually a consent from the girl that that she is she is

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

agreeing to marry, marry the man that he was proposing to her. And there's something else that we learned from this is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not just agree. And he did not accept the proposal of a bull as a mineral beer on behalf of his daughter, but in fact, he went to his daughter, and he asked his daughter, that this is a, this is a proposal that has come for you are you willing to so we learned that of when a father is about to get his own daughter married, it is important that he does not put her under any kind of pressure, or he should not just accept any proposal. This is not this is this does not only go for father, but this also goes for a mother,

00:10:41 --> 00:11:26

that the parents should never accept a proposal on behalf of a girl. And number two is that there should be no type of enforcement upon the girl. Now a lot of times in many families and in many cultures, and when I say cultures, I mean that this is not Islamic. But this is a cultural practice, that parents come to their daughter, and they want her to get married to this particular man. So they will come to her and they will ask her ask her for her permission, but they put like a certain type of pressure on her to accept that proposal. And this is something that we learned from Islam, that this is not allowed, and someone should not be put under unnecessary kind of pressure when it

00:11:26 --> 00:12:09

comes to the matters of marriage. Nonetheless, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he came, and he gave a will ask even via the good news that she has accepted her proposal. And he and he basically prayed for them. And later on, we find that Zenobia Allah that on how she didn't marry a Buddha, awesome, even though it'll be up there, we're living together. They were very happy. They were very happy together. This was a very harmonious, like, meaning like this was a marriage filled with harmony. And so and they loved each other very, very much. Allah subhanho wa Taala granted Xena * Allah, Allah, Allah and I will ask him to Obeah two children, one boy and one daughter, the

00:12:09 --> 00:12:54

boy's name was Ali and the girl's name was will mama. Nonetheless, the Prophet SAW, what is mentioned was no the Allah Allah, Allah Allah. Is that a sense? You know, what we find in Surah Quraysh with letter schita he was safe, the Arabs, they will travel very much they will travel to Yemen, they will travel to Syria, for the purposes of business, business and trade. So it said that when Ebola oz even at a beer was on one of these business trips of his, that is when Rosu the loss that Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he began to call his family to Islam. Now when he began to call his family to Islam, it said that Xena Will you allow that on her, she accepted the message and the call

00:12:54 --> 00:13:38

of Islam and she took the Shahada. Now, when Ebola asked me to be here, now, you have to keep in mind too, that this was a very young marriage. This was a very young marriage of Bulla, Osem. And Robbie had a reputation of being a very good businessman. So at a very young age, he used to do a lot of business. Nonetheless, he came back from one of his business trips, and saleable the Allahu Allah and he broke the news to him that I have accepted the message of Islam. And that is when Ebola asked him to be here, he at that time he refused, he said that I will not take the shahada, and I'm not a Muslim. And, and it says that there was like, almost like a separation that took place within

00:13:38 --> 00:14:04

the house. These were two people who began to live their life separately, pretty much. And there were not of course, there were no relationship there was no intimacy taking place between them. And this, this, you know, this created a lot of tension, a lot of anxiety, a lot of sorrow in the house of Xena are the Allahu Taala on hand. Now, of course, when Xena will be allowed to unhide watching her

00:14:05 --> 00:14:50

watching her father going through all this torture, she of course, she went through a lot of pain, watching her watching her father go through all the torture that they used to take place in Makkah, but the time came of higit on and when the time came of hijra, you remember that in the story of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when the Prophet Allah is some migrated to Medina, he left behind his children. Initially, he left behind his children. So you have he left behind his children obika left behind his children, but then later on the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam he made an he made an arrangement where he can bring his other three daughters so you you have no his other two

00:14:50 --> 00:15:00

daughters in fact, because his second daughter Rupiah was already married to or smart with the alotta line so she migrated with ortho Viola tonight. You

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

You only have two daughters of his at home. One was ohmic courtroom and the other one was falling out of the Allah Tala Anna. So the Prophet SAW Selim made an arrangement for them to come. What about Zainul? Have you allowed Alana? Xena, * Allah Don has stayed in Makkah, she remained in Makkah, because she had no idea what to do. And that time even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that you wait until Allah subhanho wa Taala there is a certain clear picture that what are you supposed to do in this kind of situation? Later on when, as Islam, you know, more and more chronic Ayat came, and the development of Islam progressed.

00:15:39 --> 00:15:53

We see that in the books of FIP what we learn is that a Muslim girl is not allowed to marry a a normal some man now, because of this. That's why Xena Rhodiola and her and

00:15:55 --> 00:16:00

I will ask him to be worse separated. Now when they were separated. First of all, it said that

00:16:01 --> 00:16:41

in the Battle of brother, Ebola awesome, it'll be a once again he's on a Muslim so when he went to fight against the Muslims, he fought on the side of the Pradesh, of course we know that the police were defeated. The people who were alive were taken as captives. When they were taken as captives Ebola, oz Obeah was also taken as a captive and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it was not in his nature that he will just go he will he will begin to execute these people. But he will always try to make a deal that if there is some ransom that you can give for this person, then I will take the ransom. If there is a person that the opposition has who is a Muslim? Let's make a clean swap

00:16:41 --> 00:17:26

you I have one of yours. You have one of ours. Let's make a clean swap. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he would try in his utmost to save everyone. Now, Zainab is in a position that he wants. She wants her husband back. Her husband is a captive of war. So what did she do she sent the necklace that Hadiya or the Allah Tala AHA gave her at the time of her marriage. And she sent that as a ransom. Tourists wa sallahu wa salam to free her husband, I will ask him Arabia when this when this messenger came and brought the necklace of Hadith, actually the nexus of Zina the Allah Tala Anna who initially belong to Hadith God Allah Tala on her, when the Prophet SAW Allah who it was

00:17:26 --> 00:18:07

some he saw this necklace, the prophet Ali get some became extremely emotional. And he began to he began to, you know, he began to cry. And you know, tears were, you know, his eyes were filled with tears. And it said that the Sahaba Rhodiola Dylon home, looking at this emotional state of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know, you have to understand, and you have to know that when the Sahaba will see the Prophet Allah has some emotional, they will do anything. They will do anything in their power to keep the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam happy or to remove that emotional state from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And that is what that is when, when

00:18:07 --> 00:18:52

the Sahaba saw the prophet like sort of crying, just looking at the nexus of Khadija the Allah Tala and her and him having flashbacks about Khadija or the Allah Tala and the sahaba. They came, and they asked that jasola What makes you emotional, and he said that whoever, whoever it has taken or whoever, Ebola ours has been a B has been appointed to, if they are okay with it, or if you are okay with it, I will let him go, I will let him go. And the Sahaba say yes, Allah. Absolutely. If you want to let him go, you can let him go. So he let him go, but on the condition that you go back to Makkah, and you have to send my daughter to me, you have to make an arrangement and send my daughter

00:18:52 --> 00:19:37

to me, because you both are not allowed to stay with one another because she's a Muslim, and you are still not a Muslim. So therefore your your Nikka has been terminated. And therefore you cannot go back and live with her as a husband, wife. Once you get there, you are taking care of the children send her to me. It said that when Ebola came back to Makkah, Xena was extremely filled with joy. But then I would ask them an Obeah broke the news to her that I've come back only on the condition that I have to send you back and dies when again, you know that joy very quickly. It turned into sorrow. And she said, you know, and he said that? It you know, he basically said a lot of things to her

00:19:37 --> 00:19:59

expressing his love for Xena Rhodiola on her and it said that, you know she left. But at that time she was pregnant. She was expecting a child and it said that while she was trying to leave. The police came in front of her with their horses and she she got frightened and when she loved frightened she turned around and she rushed back to Makkah

00:20:00 --> 00:20:28

And to go and get the support of her of her ex husband. At that time, I would ask him to be here. And because of this, some say because as she became very frightened, and she went through a certain emotional state, she suffered and she had a miscarriage. And, and she came back to Makkah Bula asimilar via took care of her until she was able to get back to a certain level of strength that is required for traveling purposes.

00:20:29 --> 00:21:15

She got to that she was able to get to that point again. She then migrated to Medina, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received her and she began to take care of her and he was, she was once again in the, you know, in the company or in the family of a celestial. So Allahu alayhi wa salam. Now, Ebola asked him to appear, made another trip for business purposes. When he was coming back, his caravan was taken over by the Muslims. And he said that I would ask him to be it was a taken again taken as a captive. And he was brought to Medina. And then later on, he had two choices. They said that he was in a position that he could have escaped. And when he tried to escape, he thought

00:21:15 --> 00:21:59

about what should I do? should I escape? I mean, I can go I have to be extremely discreet about my journey, no one can see me. Otherwise, if someone sees me, they'll call me out. Or should I go back? Should I go to Xena? And shall I go and visit my my ex wife. And that is when he decided that my life is more in danger if I tried to go back to Makkah, because he had no source of transportation. He had no money yet nothing at that time. So he thought that it'd be more wise. And it was a more wise decision of his that he went back to Xena Rhodiola tonight. Mm hmm. And it says that Zayn upset Well, the ultraviolence she says that I was lying down in my room when there was like a hard knock

00:21:59 --> 00:22:45

on the door. And I asked and she says I got scared. I wasn't expecting I will ask him to appear to come at this time. So when those are not the hard knock on the door, I got frightened. And when I asked who it was, and when she when when the person said that this is a Buddha awesome with a beer right away. She could tell she could recognize that voice. And she opened the door and she was extremely again filled with joy. She brought her in, she brought him in. She let him take a shower. She fed him and then the next day in salt and Fajr. The day after South Africa was over Zenobia Allah Tala on how she got up and she said that I have given protection to a Buddha or similar via

00:22:45 --> 00:23:25

now I'm going to pause here and explain this little what does this mean? During the time in Mecca, if anyone as a Muslim want to live in Mecca, and remember that the Muslims were in a minority, the Muslims were a minority, the kuffaar were a majority. If you wanted to live in Makkah, and you did not want to be persecuted for your religion, then you had to be under the protection of some certain highly influential individual of the society. So like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was under the care of who or under the protection of Bhutan. So everyone backed away from Rasulullah sallallahu. It was send them there were some other people who were under the protection of some

00:23:25 --> 00:24:07

influential people. So this concept was existing at that time, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he changed that when he migrated to Medina, when he might get when he migrated to Medina, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made this a rule for everyone in Medina, man or woman, anyone who was previously a slave who is not a slave anymore, that they had the power to give protection to whoever they wanted. And this was not the case in Macau. This was not the case in Makkah. But the Prophet SAW Allah while he was selling he provided more privileges to the Muslims, and therefore he made this rule and this is why Xena badiola Talana after southern fudges, she got

00:24:07 --> 00:24:21

up and she said that Ebola oz even Robbie is with me, and he is under my protection. Now. At this moment, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does something very something very smart.

00:24:22 --> 00:25:00

And what he did was that he asked everyone, he has everyone that did everyone hear this? Did everyone hear what I heard? And all the Sahaba said, Yes, we heard was enough said, you heard we heard we heard the same thing. And then the Prophet SAW Allah has sent them he made it very clear that I swear by Allah subhanho wa Taala that I did not have any knowledge of this. Now the reason the Prophet saw me made this very clear, is because someone could have thought that because this is the daughter of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is a hashtag plan or this is a you know

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

or a manufacturer plan. And this is something that the person was very well, were very well aware about. And he was just acting as if you know, as if he does not know and this is why the province is something he made it very, very clear that I swear by Allah subhanaw taala I had nothing to do with this. I had no knowledge that I will ask for a beer was with my daughter Zenodo the Allah Tala Aha. And then he said that then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said, the Muslims are like one hand against those who are outside their community, and the lowest of the Muslims is entitled to give protection on behalf of the rest of his co Muslims. So we as the Muslims, even though I will ask him

00:25:45 --> 00:26:24

adobea Is Anna Muslim right now. And since Xena had the authority and she has the permission to give protection, therefore, a Buddha asked me to be it is now in the protection of the Muslims. And when the Prophet SAW he said that everyone was calm but the Prophet SAW Allah why do you assume he made it very clear was anybody Allah Tala Anna, that you your Nikka is still terminated? You're not to have you're not allowed to have any kind of relations with your ex husband and so zero the Allah Quran has she agreed to that. Now, the next thing is that the the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now you have of course we know that in Medina, there was a certain environment that took

00:26:24 --> 00:27:11

place. And Ebola asked him to be living in that environment, he began to have like an interchange, he began to be more influenced by the Muslims. He was more impressed by the Muslims. He began to be around them more and more, and he began to realize who these people are. And so what happened was that he says that I do want to take the shahada, but there's a there's a very big condition. I will not take the shahada here in Medina, I am going to go back to Mecca and take the shahada there. Now why did he say this? Because he felt that if he sits here in Medina, and he takes a shahada here in Medina, the people in Makkah will say that he was influenced by them, they forced him to take the

00:27:11 --> 00:27:52

shahada, and he had no other choice but out of love for his wife. He took the shahada, he so he in order to make it a point to the college, he went back to Makkah. He had a lot of Amana and people's trust, he returned everyone's trust. And then he went in from the pledge and he openly proclaim that I believe, I believe in the religion that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has brought and I believe in the Oneness of Allah subhanho wa taala. And the Prophet Allah his son has been the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa taala. And no one did anything to him. Of course, he was an influential member of the community. So they left him and then it said that I will ask him to be I

00:27:52 --> 00:28:29

was able to come back to Medina V. Nica was redone between Xena Rhodiola Tirana. And, and I want to ask him a little bit, but then one year after this reunion, one year after this reunion, ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala took the life of Zina Rhodiola and her. She passed away in the fifth year after hijra, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he came to know about Xenos departure and Satan's death. Of course, he felt very sad about it. He especially instructed the woman who were giving her a bath that you know, bathe her

00:28:30 --> 00:28:32

three times. And then the next time with

00:28:34 --> 00:28:35

with camphor or

00:28:37 --> 00:29:15

was the Arabic term for camphor, got food, cat food, which is generally mentioned the books of FIP also is cat food, which is like a fragrance that is generally used when people are given a bath after they pass away. And then it said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam nonetheless, he will always visit with awesome Adobe or look after them see if they needed anything because of course they you know, she has left behind two children. So the problem he would always you know, we always had the stories that he was always around Hassan and Hussein, but you know, he was always around Hassan Hussein or the Allah Tala and Homer, but he always kept an eye on Ali and Oh mama, the

00:29:15 --> 00:29:52

two the two children of Xena Rhodiola Tala Anna, and, you know, so we learned that you know, mashallah, you know, first of all is that look at the struggles that these people they went through for the cause of their deen and we also are always, of course, we're always challenged when it comes to our deen. And what we learned from the stories of these people is that they always they went through the challenge but they never, they never felt like as if they will lose hoping Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is what we learned from the stories of the of these great individuals that have passed some Allah subhanaw give all of us ability to act upon what's been said and heard

00:29:52 --> 00:29:59

Dr. Mala Hey Subhanallah we humbly Subhanak along with hunting, and I should do Allah Allah, Allah and Nestor Federica wanted to be exactly one

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