Was someone a little salty him Hamid while early he was so happy to hear that mine was set in with the same amount of caffeine and caffeine on my boss of 100 calories Munna Illa Allah Matera in the cantilever game, publisher lease of the railway, silly Emery waterlogged, the melissani of Gokhale. So inshallah we continue our series, which is elite followers, the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And in the very beginning of this series, we started off with the children of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Then we went to the wives of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and now we are going to the ashram and Bashara the 10 people who are giving Glad Tidings in

00:00:47 --> 00:01:31

this dunya by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that they will attain Jana in sha Allah. So the person that we're talking about today is Abdul Rahman bin now for the Allah Tala. And now generally when the name of Abdullah Hammarby. Now for the Allah the line is taken or mentioned before us, the first thing that comes to our mind is a very rich companion, a companion of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam who had a lot of money. But the most important thing that we learned from abdur-rahim and alpha your waterline was that despite the fact that he had a lot of money and he was truly blessing, by Allah subhanho wa Taala he never let money and his love for money come in the way

00:01:31 --> 00:02:12

between him in Allah subhanahu wata Isla, because generally when the when we talk about money, the general idea amongst the people is the money is something that is bad. I remember I attended a football one time overseas, and the hottie was saying that money is something that you stay completely away from money is haram. Now I was thinking to myself sitting in that football, the How is money haram when you use money to buy every single thing in life? So yes, there is there is no doubt in the fact that when it comes to the subject of money we see in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala he talks about money. And so to recap, saying a man who will bananas will hire to dunya that

00:02:12 --> 00:02:57

that when it comes to children and when it comes to wealth, these are considered as the Xena of the dunya it means that it can distract you from Allah subhanahu wata Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala and subtle munafo Goon he says yeah, you want Lavina Amano la tool, he come and Wailuku Allah Allah to command villa, do not do not let wealth do not let the do not let children deviate you from the remembrance and from the from reminding yourself about Allah subhanho wa taala. So even though yes, you know, when it comes to wealth, and when it comes to money, it has that mechanism of taking a person away from Allah subhanho wa taala. But this is what's so fascinating about this habit of

00:02:57 --> 00:03:42

Yolanda and I know, especially a person like Abraham, I've been around for the allotted time, that despite the fact that he has so much money, and I will share with you some stories about how much he was generous and how much he gave for Allah subhanho wa taala. This, this materialism did not deterred these people from attaining the best in this dunya and akhira. I mean, this is a man who was given so much, but yet he was able to do so much for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the Prophet Allah told Robin over the allotted time, that you will be in Jannah in sha Allah, and this is this is what we need to really learn. We live in a world of materialism, we will benefit

00:03:42 --> 00:04:28

from materialism, but we cannot let materialism take over us. This is so this is why this subject matter is so important. A drama going on for the wealth that it was one of the free first he was amongst the first eight people to accept Islam. He was amongst those who were assured entry into Jana, Dr. Zhang Bashara. Not only that, but because of his piety and because of his leadership and his generosity. I'm going to reveal a lot that I and he chose six people who would who will succeed him as a Khalifa and we talked about this in the past that he put these six people into one home, that they should unanimously agree that who will serve as an ex Khalifa, and one of the six people

00:04:28 --> 00:04:59

that he chose was Abdul Rahman bin Alfred Yalta dawn. Now other Mohammed offer the Allah Tala and after accepting Islam, even though yes, he was considered as someone who was noble, but yet he went through his fair share of torture. The torture reached to such an extent that he migrated to Abyssinia and as you all know, according to Islamic history, there was a rumor that has spread in Makkah. There was a rumor that has spread that some of the people the key figures and the key individuals who control Maga

00:05:00 --> 00:05:44

They had become Muslims. So because of this rumor, a lot of the Muslims they came back to Makkah. But when they came back to Makkah, they realized once again it was a rumor. So drama going on for the Alola island he decided to migrate for a second time to Abyssinia and this was another migration that took place by the Muslims to Abyssinia and Abdullah bin was part of that migration. Now later on when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told the Sahaba now you can migrate to Medina, less all my all my greater Medina, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he built a foundation of muah Ha, the foundation of brotherhood and what the Prophet SAW Selim did was he assigned some

00:05:44 --> 00:06:33

people to take care and look after some the other people the idea of the Mahajan and the unsought there was one person who was also a very well blessing person by Allah subhanaw taala. This is a person who was given Allah by Allah, his name was Simon is sad, sad, been a bit of er, and he came and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was from amongst the unsought, the Prophet alayhi salam said that I assign you outside, even Robbie, a person and he pointed out Rama mouth, that you are to be with that person. Now Saudi Arabia, Saudi Arabia, he came and he was in the mode of generosity. He was a person who was generous himself. So when he was given Abramova oath as someone

00:06:33 --> 00:07:26

who he should look after, he said, the very first thing he said to him, throw him under oath Rhodiola on was that I have two gardens, I have two orchards. I will give one of them to you for you to keep. And I have two wives, if you wish, I will divorce one of them. And once she is past time, that you can marry her a drama and offer the along the line. He was he was appreciative towards this generosity, generosity, and this hospitality by a Saudi Arabia, but he requested sod even Obeah that just simply show me where is the soup to show me where the market is, and the sudden dropping off of the alotta. And so behind law, he had this, he had a neck, as he said, he had a knack of knowing how

00:07:26 --> 00:08:03

to do business. So you went to the marketplace. And he just he bought something small with whatever he had. And he made that into he made he turned that into double profit. And he just does he began to make a lot and a lot of profit. Now I remember one time I was talking about abdur-rahim and alpha Yola, and I and and someone asked me, that was under 100, and over the allotted time, because he was such a successful businessman, was the amendment and I said, No, he was on an amendment. Okay. So for those of you who don't know what amendment is amendment is a person who's generally recognized as a person who can take very little and turn it into gold, okay. So he was not that good to have

00:08:03 --> 00:08:46

been on for the allotted on Yes, he was given business instincts. He had this, once again, this reputation of turning small profit into big profit. And this is what is this, this is exactly what he did. He went to the marketplace, and he was able to achieve so much profit, that a day came, that he came in to measure the number up. And there was something that the Prophet SAW Allah while he was some saw on his forehead. And it was a it was a it was a sign. Or it was a symbolic that this person has, has just been has just married someone. And so the problem is that a lot while he was someone was shocked, why was he shocked? Because you still had the Alzheimer's sofa living inside Majid

00:08:46 --> 00:09:23

Neverwet does have a sofa. These were people who were extremely poor people Sahaba or Yolanda on home, who migrated with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, but they had nowhere to go. They were not paired up with anyone from the brothers in Medina. So they were the ones who were sitting who were living in the back of the masjid. And they were known as as Hagia Sophia. And that's why they said that when the Prophet SAW Sanlam whenever he would receive any gift, before he was spending it on anyone else he would give it to who the US have a sofa, the Sahaba who were living in the back of the Masjid. Now when when Abraham and all for the Ultron came inside the masjid and the Prophet

00:09:23 --> 00:09:59

Allah you don't realize that he's just you know, he just got married there probably is some was shocked and he says I'm gonna human. This is what the this is what the profile is, um said to me, he says already like as if you just came to Medina, okay, the Sahaba who are struggling and you're able to take so little turn into so much profit, find a wife for yourself getting married, and has everything is done. And he says yes, hula Yes, I got married, you know, and he was and he this is the way he said to us wa sallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then the Prophet it sound reminded him that make sure you have a one EMA and make sure you feed

00:10:00 --> 00:10:43

The others and so he agreed to that. And this is you know, once again this is the shows who are gonna have an offer the a lot and and who was when we talk about the battles and the expeditions in which the Sahaba they participated with Rasulullah sallallahu it was sending them you know, there's the Battle of whether there is a battle I've heard, you know, battles in which of the robbing out of your waterline he participated in, and he poured his heart out, he gave in one of these two expeditions, it said that he gave a 4000 dinars to help the to help the eighth the Muslims in the Battle of taboo the Battle of the book was something was a time which was extremely difficult upon

00:10:43 --> 00:11:27

the Sahaba of the Allah Tala on whom the Sahaba they say that it was extremely hot. And that's why in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala when talking about the book and the expedition of the book, because these people they said that it was so hot, the heat was so intense, Allah subhanho wa Taala He reminded them and this is a reminder reminder for all of us. Allah says in the Quran, Punahou, Johanna Shahara. That Don't you forget about the fire, Johanna that when it comes to heat, it is far more intense than the heat of this dunya. Nonetheless, it was a battle where the Sahaba were struggling. And they said that in a battle like an expedition like that of the Mohammed or for the

00:11:27 --> 00:12:06

Allah that I'm once again he opened up his heart, and he donated 200 odd years of gold. These are these are gold, gold coins, which are, which were extremely valuable at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu ala he was setting them and so Subhanallah he he poured his heart open. He gave everything that he had. But so while at the same time we learn that there was a type of honor that he was given that no one else was given. In the same expedition. They said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not there when it was the time for Salaat. And so the Sahaba they are debating the who is going to leave the salon who's going to do the salon. At that time, they

00:12:06 --> 00:12:44

push the Rahaman off of your water onto the front, that you are to lead us a lot. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came later on, and he prayed behind a drop moment offer the Allah tonight. Now this is an honor for Abdul Rahman Oh, because there were very few Sahaba the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he prayed behind and the orlimar they mentioned that you have to understand that the Prophet sallallahu it was sending them once in his life, he led all the Gambia on the night of Istart in Mirage, and I do want to make a point about assignment Raj at the very end, so please do so please do stay for that. At the height of a certain Mirage, the Prophet SAW

00:12:44 --> 00:13:29

Allah some he led all the Gambia This is a man who is now standing behind Abrahamic for the Yolo the nine so this was an honor. And this was a privilege for Abdul Hamid out for the a lot and on the other hand off of the Allah on after the death of resource Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he took it upon himself to take care of all the financial needs. Of all the wives of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, no one came to him. The problem was I'm not telling that you have to take care of them. He himself stepped forward, and he chose to take care of all their financial needs. Even it said that in a season of hemorrhage, when the Omaha Momineen when they would go for Hajj, and they will stay

00:13:29 --> 00:14:03

there Agraharam and all for the Allah Allah will stay with them so that he can pay for all their expenses during March. He was a man who gave so much for us wa sallahu alayhi wa sallam and for the family of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once he sold a piece of land for 40,000 dinars and he distributed that amongst the people of the the bionews. Zara, which is the relatives of the prophets Allah somes mother Amina, and then he distributed some of that amongst the

00:14:04 --> 00:14:48

amongst the poor people in Medina, and then he distributed this this money or this Prophet that he was able to gain amongst the Omaha Romanian the story I mean the Mothers of the Believers, to which I showed you allow that on her she says that whenever she received her share, she said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that no one she This is the prophet it is I'm telling I shall be allowed Alana that no one will feel compassion towards you after I pass away except for a person who is amongst the saw beauty and so here are the Ramadan for the Allah Tehran he has that that title also in that in that honor, under Mohammed offer the Allah Tala and one day he came inside Medina

00:14:48 --> 00:14:59

and there was a huge commotion in Medina. And so I saw the Ultron sitting in her home she's saying that she asked someone that can you go find out what is a huge commotion

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

So the news comes back to I showed you a lot and I have that up there hanging off of your log and it has come with his group of people inside Medina. So I showed you a lotta AHA says that will okay if someone just came inside Medina why is there such a big commotion in Medina? So the response or the answer given to I showed you a lot and Anna was that Abdul Rahman Alfred Yolanda has come by he has not come empty handed. He has come with 700 camels. You know, what's the value of one camel today? What's the value of one camel? Does anyone know? The value of one camera?

00:15:38 --> 00:15:48

Someone told you $5,000 Well, Allahu Allah. If you do the math, if you do the math 700 camels and let's just say each one camel is $5,000 How much is that?

00:15:50 --> 00:15:51


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


00:15:54 --> 00:15:57

3.53 point 5 million.

00:15:58 --> 00:16:07

This is now listen to this. This is not only just camels that he has coming to Medina with each camel is loaded with merchandise.

00:16:09 --> 00:16:32

Each camel is loaded with merchandise. So you're talking about not just 2.5 million very possibly $5 million worth of stuff for example. And so what happened was that I saw the a lot and I now she begins to contemplate and she remembers something that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about a little humbling for the allotted time that Mohammed would will will be going into Jana.

00:16:34 --> 00:17:13

Some some some people they translated as he'll be creeping into Jana. Some say that in some way. Some people translate the Hadith of the Prophet it is some by saying that he will be crawling into Jana. Now, I showed you Allah tonight and she says that I want you to convey this message to Andromeda and Alfred Yola, tonight. The message is conveyed other human outcomes. I share with you a lot Anna Anna, and he asks, that is this truly something that the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, and probably because of my my love of wealth, this is happening. And I showed you a lot on how she says yes. Now think about this. This is what I said earlier on, that it didn't matter. It didn't

00:17:13 --> 00:17:36

matter how much money these people had, when it came to Jannah when it came to the hereafter the hereafter was first it was the priority. And I'm dropping off of the Allah dawn he says to ISIL the ultra Unha there you'll be my witness, that everything that I have come in today with into Medina with I give all of that away for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala

00:17:37 --> 00:18:23

I give all of it away, for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala now, not only that, but Subhanallah I was able to find some more interesting information about I'm gonna have been on for the allotted time. These are just different, different different different times. This is this is his generosity. At one time he gave 40,000 Durham's of silver, another time he gave a 40,000 dinars of gold, and other time he gave 200 years of gold. In another time he gave 500 horses to the army of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and for Expedition one time he provided 101,500 camels to another group who are going for an expedition and one time he also gave 400 dinars of gold to the survivors of

00:18:23 --> 00:19:07

brother. Think about how much this man was given I think he was surpass pretty much all of us over here in terms of what the how much he had. But once again, it did not keep these people away from achieving Janna and that's why I saw the wealth and on how she would make dua for other home and off saying that may Allah subhanho wa Taala give him something to drink from the water of Sal Sabine. It is a particular spring in paradise. I showed you a lot that ANA she will say May Allah subhanho wa Taala give this to other human off of your waterline. Finally, a Brahmin also the Allah turned on even after the death of us also Allah sent him he always contributed always helped out, never never

00:19:07 --> 00:19:46

shied away from being generous. And he passed away in the Khilafah of Earthman. Even though I firmly YOLO to nine, and till today, he is buried and genital bacteria. So these are. So this is something that we learned from Abdurrahman off of the Allah Tala and such a great individual, someone who never let materialism get in their way of achieving Jana. And this is what we can take from other Muhammad alpha the Allah Tala. And now the last thing I want to mention which was which was about you know That tonight is the 27th Night of Rajab, few people have come to me and said that are we doing any program at the masjid shall be mirage or anything like that? And there are just a few

00:19:46 --> 00:19:47

things I want to say about that.

00:19:48 --> 00:20:00

First of all, is that when we look at our Islamic matters, there's always two extremes. Like for example, you have one extreme that that will say that Budda Budda Aveda don't even talk about

00:20:00 --> 00:20:36

They don't even mention about it, do not give any attention to the night of his sorry, miraj and to the subject of historian mirage. And then you have the other extreme that, you know, they might be in the measure all night long. They're fasting the next day they believe that there are some different do is that the Prophet sallallahu it was some he made on this particular night. First of all, is that when we studied the night this the you know, the the incident of assaulting a mirage? First of all, there is a great difference of opinion amongst the Allamah. Exactly when did this event occur? Number one, number two is that even if majority there Alama they did agree that it took

00:20:36 --> 00:21:16

place in the month of Raja yet there is still a discrepancy in terms of the date exactly when it took place. Now, even though a lot of the orlimar they say that, yes, it took place on the 27th of Raja. And let's just say even tonight is the 27th Night of Rajab, the best way to approach this matter is that yes, we don't find anything from US law. So Allahu alayhi wa sallam Sierra, where he collected people at the masjid. Okay, I remember one time I was overseas, and it was a month of Rajab. And it was that 27th night and I went to the masjid and I was and I saw people, you know, wearing new clothes. I saw people like, you know, the budget was packed. And I was really shocked. I

00:21:16 --> 00:21:52

was like, what's going on today? Like, what's is there? Some? I'm thinking to myself, I'm sure there's no II okay. I'm sure there's no other day what's going on today. And then someone informed me that tonight is the 27th of Raja and I said, Yes, I know. But so what you know, and the in the idea and there is like this, you know, in the world that we live in, there are a lot of people once again, who will go to the masjid. They will have all these programs all night long, talking about Islam and miraj and then fasting the next day and making the difference to us. And if we don't find any of that from the CETA of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, at the same time, the middle

00:21:52 --> 00:22:34

approach is also that we should, without a doubt, we should teach our children about Asahi Miraj, we should tell our children about Islam in Mirage, because do you know what you know, the idea of Sri Mirage is something that first of all, it took place at one of the most difficult times of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And it was probably one of the greatest gifts given to us who also Allahu alayhi wa sallam at the same time. What did the Prophet send a witness on that night? There were so many things that probably some of you witnessed on that night. Not only that, but even on a slightly mirage. And every single at every single stage, he met a different, a different Nebby,

00:22:34 --> 00:23:18

a different prophet of Allah, Allah He saw it, he saw there was salam, And subhanAllah do Allah ma, they even give an explanation behind that, that when he met Adam Alayhis Salam when he made use of Adi Islam when he met inside of Islam, what is what is the meaning behind all that? What is the meaning behind all that? And subhanAllah this took place before the Hijra of rasa Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and who he met on each, each stage the prophets that he met, there was a message behind that. There was a message behind that because you're talking about tons of Gambia, so many prophets sent by Allah subhanaw taala. But yet the province has some you only met eight, when he when he, he

00:23:18 --> 00:24:01

led the Gambia, but in that time when he went to the different different stages in the sky, he emits a different Ambia Allah subhanho wa taala. But what was the message behind that? Why only these eight eight people, there was a there was a message behind that. And, and overall, the idea was that Allah subhanho wa Taala is prepping, he is preparing Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for his hatred to Medina, as many orlimar they say. So there are so many things that can be learned from the night of Islam in marriage. And we should teach that to our children. Because, believe it or not, if you go home right now, and you tell your children that first of all, What month is it? I can I mean,

00:24:01 --> 00:24:36

I'm not being trying to be negative here. But majority of our children will not even know what month what is something month is going on. And then let's just say you ask them that what major incident took place in the month of Rajab, they probably won't even know about that, too. So our kids so what happens is that sometimes we try to take one extreme, but we don't realize that we're keeping our kids absolutely ignorant about the matter. So the best way to approach it, which is the you know, the moderate way, Allah Subhan Allah says in the Quran, look at Attica, John Malcolm and Martin wasa. He has created you as a moderate OMA a an Obama that takes the middle path. So we won't take

00:24:36 --> 00:24:59

either extreme But on this night we will there is no extra there's no fast tomorrow. There is no unique do us that the problem he taught us on this night there is nothing that we learned from the profiling some that he will spend all the night the entire night at the masjid and giving lectures. By the same time our Islam history talks about a great event that took place so I think that we need to sit down with our children. We

00:25:00 --> 00:25:20

To tell them about what happened and the lessons that can be learned more more important than the story is the lessons to be learned from SR a mirage So may Allah subhana give all of us ability to act one has been sent a hurt document love hate behind love you humbly so behind Nikola Honda Hyundai actually, you know in antenna selfie Luca, we're gonna do the exact Malachite
