Mr. Lohana, human 100 loco Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah him Hamid wala he was so happy here Jemaine about. So February is usually black history month. And one thing that we learn about our Islamic history is that first of all, it's something history is very rich, so much we can learn from. And when you study Black History Month, you truly have to go back to the life of the apostle Lhasa Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and the very first woman perhaps in the life of the prophet Sallallahu, it was setting them. A woman who gave her life for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a woman who witnessed the birth of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the death of

00:00:39 --> 00:01:20

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a woman who witnessed the entire life of Rasulillah salam from beginning to end and always was there with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she was from Africa. She was in the life of the prophet saw Salem. This is baraka or as we know her. I'm Aiman Radi Allahu to Isla unhealth on the Iman or the Allahu Taala Anhang. She was, initially she was given to or she was sold. And she came into the house of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even before the birth of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And as we all know, that the father of the prophets of salaam he went to Syria, as this is something that they would often do.

00:01:20 --> 00:01:59

They will travel in summer to Syria, in winter, they will travel to Yemen. So her her husband, this is Amina her husband, Abdullah, the father of the prophets of Salaam, he's not even aware of the fact that his wife is expecting a child, he goes to Syria and usually what would happen is that when they would come back into the city, what I'm gonna will do is that she will send her slave or a man or that time baraka to go in find out that Abdullah come back or not, when the caravan came back, and Abdullah there was no sign of Abdullah, the father of the province that Allahu Allah he was sending them. That is when she brought this sad news that she was told that Abdullah has passed

00:01:59 --> 00:02:43

away. And that is when she she realized she was also expecting a child. And then she even saw a dream, the mother of the Prophet, she saw a dream that there is a light emanating from herself. And when she shared that news, in this dream with Baraka or a man, she said that perhaps this child that you are expecting, is going to bring great baraka and it will be a light, a source of light for many people to come in sha Allah. And then later on when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was born, the very first woman to carry the Prophet said a law hottie was sending them was this same woman from Africa on a man and then later on at that same point, and then at another point, at this point, and

00:02:43 --> 00:03:24

when the mother or the son passed away, at both times, we find the books of history that Amina told Baraka that please take care of her take care of him. The Prophet SAW Allah while he was sending them like a mother And subhanAllah we find throughout the entire life of Baraka are Amon, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would always refer to as your own me, oh, my mother, the prophets of Allah is mentioned in the books of history, that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he got married, this is now much later in his life. And by the way, Baraka was approximately 13 years she she was 13 years older than Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So we all know that

00:03:24 --> 00:04:09

the Prophet SAW Selim, he got married at what age? What age 4025 He got married at the age of 25. How old was Khadija? 40. So she was approximately that time you do the math. She was around 38 years old. Okay. So 38 years old, she's not made at all, she's never gotten married. Why? Because of her dedication to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And even at that time, Khadija she told Baraka that why don't you get married now? I am now in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she said, No, I am supposed to take care of him. Like he's my son, and I will therefore take care of him, like my son. But after a lot of insisting, then she gave in and she says, okay, perhaps

00:04:09 --> 00:04:50

I will get married, and how the day you all know that she was a businesswoman. She was very resourceful. So she found a person by the name of obeyed even a Zayed from Hassan. Hassan was in Medina at that time, which was known as yesterday. So this is there were two main tribes or ozen has Raj and this is why we find from the seed of the Prophet, that majority of the unsought they came from Oh 700 So she got married to this man obeyed bin Zaid and she had a child by the name of a month. That's why she was called Omar a month and then later on then because of that, she had to move to Medina because her husband was there. So she moved to Medina, but soon after the birth of

00:04:50 --> 00:04:59

this child, Amon, then her husband obeyed he passed away. And then she realized that what business do I have in Medina? Let me go back and let me be

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

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and so she came back and she lived with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, one thing we know also about the early days of Makkah, was that the Prophet SAW Allah sent him he would gather his Sahaba for Halal cars and hot rods and lectures and you know, about Eman and so forth at a place called Daraa a double Archon. And there the province has some he would meet with others. By the way, if you don't know why there's you know, something very strategic about why Rasul Allah has a sudden would meet at Arkham, the person who was in charge of Dar como whose house it was, his tribe and the Quran were at odds, no one would have

00:05:40 --> 00:06:20

ever thought that the province Salam would have lectures at his house, because the tribes were at each other's necks, but it was a strategy of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that no one would think that I will be here conducting my lectures. Hence, this is the best place to conduct the lectures. And so one day it is mentioned that the police they were monitoring the streets who was going here who's going there. So she one time she could have been, you know, things could have gotten much worse for her, but she put her life on the line, and she got to the house of the Archon. She attended the gathering of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that is when that is when

00:06:20 --> 00:06:48

after she left, look at her dedication. Because of her dedication. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the woman who just left OMA Amon, she is a woman of Jannah. She is a woman of Jana, and who would want to marry her. And that is when zayde Even a hadith that they adopted son of Rasulullah saw Salam he raised his hand he says Jada sola, I will marry her, by the way, short note here. How many years was she older than zayde? Anyone?

00:06:49 --> 00:07:32

She was approximately 20 years older than ze now let's pause here for a moment. Think about this. Today in society. If we heard that the the wife was even few years older than the husband is frowned upon. Brothers and sisters, this is a gentle advice I always give. If you find a good woman for your son. If you find a good son for your daughter, it does not matter age does not matter. I'm not saying of course, a huge difference. But even a difference like this the province some he accepted it, and from that marriage who came from that marriage was summer immunizations. This man this young boy who was so beloved tourists who also Allahu Allah, he was sending them. So she is now married to

00:07:32 --> 00:08:11

say them in a hadith. And now she has another child and by the way, she was at an age where she should not she could not have children or generally women at that age would not have children. But Allah subhanaw taala had destined Allah had willed it. So she had a child. But there was something even Aziz now fast forward to the time of the Hijra of the province that Allahu Allah he was setting them. It is mentioned that on her journey to hijra, the Prophet said, Allah is mentioned that she was at one time so thirsty, that she prayed to Allah subhana wa to Allah and she made dua to Allah subhanho wa taala. And she mentioned after she came to Medina, she narrated the story to the Prophet

00:08:11 --> 00:08:53

SAW Selim, that as I got up, and I went to sleep, and I got up, I saw that there was a bucket of water. In this role. She says, I tried to see the rope, and I could not see the end of the rope, and she says, I drink that water. And after that, there were many difficult days of fasting, but on those days, I never felt thirsty after drinking that water. After that, there were times when I went for Amara, I never felt thirsty during ombre. So this bucket of water was so quenching that it quenched her thirst for the rest of her life. After that she never felt thirsty. Even if she drink water. She drink water just for the sake of staying healthy and the need of having water but not out

00:08:53 --> 00:09:34

of thirst Subhanallah now she comes all the way to Medina, and there's blisters on her foot. Because the city you know if you study if many of us who go for Hajj who go for Umrah, we get on a bus, we get on a train a fast bullet train, we get there to Mecca and Medina and one and a half hour people long time ago, they had to walk through those deserts. They had to those walks in those deserts. And by the way, there is this thick book I have in my office right now someone gave me that this is an author who documented every single place in the desert whereas last time he stopped for during his migration. This entire book was written only on the Hegira of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:09:34 --> 00:09:59

where this researcher went And subhanAllah when you open that book, you have this sort of appreciation for how much did Rasulullah saw set him in a Sahaba they went through when they made this Hijra. This was not an ordinary Hijra. This was not just a small travel. This was a very difficult travel nonetheless, over a month she comes all the way to Medina and the problem sees that her foot her foot is full of blisters, and her feet have become swollen and she's

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

Tired and again Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, because of our dedication Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam said that this is a woman of Jana, this is a woman who will enter into Jana. And then later on, we find that if she would always participate in all the battles, she would help the wounded, she will provide water to all those who are wounded those who are in need of help. And she was there right by Rasulullah sallallahu. It was send them now fast forward many years, when she now later on she went through her own difficulties, her son Amon, passed away in the Battle of her name. And he was a Muslim, her son, her husband, Zaid, he died in the battle of Malta. And this happened during

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

the time of the Prophet sallallahu, ala he was sending them and then she she will not show that much distress when they passed away. But Subhanallah when the day came, that Rasulullah sallallahu, Assam she he passed away, she could not control herself, even after the burial of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam it is mentioned that on top of the Hola, Juan and Alba karate, Allahu Allah, and they both sent a request that we want to come and visit you because it was a normal habit of Rasulullah salaam, that he would often go and visit OMA Amon. So they went to her and they asked her Oh, my aim and how are you doing? What can we do for you? And that is when she broke down into

00:11:18 --> 00:11:59

tears. And they asked her are you crying? Because of the death of Rasulullah? Saw Sonam? She said no would the reason why I'm crying is because now the doors of worry have been shut for forever. Now no more are we going to receive our hay late before we would have a difficult situation where he would come we will find ourselves in a challenging situation where he would come a difficult circumstance or where he would come we will be in a battle what to do or where he would come now the doors of war hey are shut and they are shut for eternity. And that is what I'm crying for. And that is and then later on. She passed away as some of the orlimar They say she passed away in the the time of birth

00:11:59 --> 00:12:38

not even often Radi Allahu Taala and so now we see that this is a woman who dedicated her entire life from beginning to end with Rasul Allah salah, and as a result of her dedication, not only to Allah give her a bucket of water that her sweat or thirst is quenched forever. But she got the reach. She got the glad tidings of Jana, not once, but twice in this dunya from the beloved mouth of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So we learned that when we dedicate our life the best way we can dedicate our life so she took care of the problems or send them how can we be close to problem solve them by implementing his sunnah his o'clock his character in our life? And finally, the most

00:12:38 --> 00:13:20

powerful lesson that we can take from all this is that perhaps see when we talk about your team, what are the problems some say about the team? He says, Anna? What Caffrey your team can attain the I and the person who looks after the team will be like this in Jana Insha Allah, but at the same time, how was Ross? Who was a Salam or how did the province on become so inclusive? Okay, when it came to people of other races, when it came, you have the gathering of Ross was a Salem, but you have beloved Hampshire or the Allahu and you have people who have disabilities like Abdullah, Al Maktoum or the Allahu and you have people like um, Sohaib a Rumi, Radi Allahu Allah and you had all

00:13:20 --> 00:14:03

these different Sahaba and even the Sahaba who were there, they were not all from the Quraysh some from Orange some from other tribes, some from out some from Hassan, but the problem was able to gather everyone and this is our beautiful Deen our deen is about inclusivity. And what's beautiful, if you think about all this is that perhaps Rasul Allah Azza wa, perhaps Allah subhanho wa Taala made Ross was sort of a your team before he was born. And that is what led him to have a sympathetic heart towards the team. And it was a team who were abused in Makkah, how could Roswaal Salam? How can a person have sympathy, if he has no idea what it means to be a team, he wasn't your team.

00:14:03 --> 00:14:43

Therefore, he had an idea that how to treat a team. He was a person who grew up in a family where you have a woman from Africa, so therefore he was racially inclusive. If the people if these kinds of people did not exist in the life of the prophet Salam, there is no guarantee that Allah subhanho wa Taala will make his heart racially inclusive towards everyone else. Perhaps Allah put these people in his life to prepare him to become a prophet. And this is why we find this about Ardene so this is the month of February I thought I just wanted to share this beautiful story about Omar a man or the Allahu Dona Ana, and there are many other people Inshallah, on Thursday, we have a program on

00:14:43 --> 00:14:59

Friday we are programming sha Allah, and we're going to see this, but stay the lives of these kinds of people. These are people who had an impact when you study about United States, their earlier people who want to impact and who were able to spread Islam were the African Americans, the African Americans who came here through the trans

00:15:00 --> 00:15:34

Atlantic slave trade from Africa. So many were brought here to America. There were so many Muslims on there. And they were the ones who established the foundation of Islam in America. So we need to study about their lives. Also, how are we here today? It is because of their sacrifices. I asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to give us their feet to appreciate the small things may Allah subhanho wa Taala bless all these people. And we asked Allah subhana wa to give us the ability to learn a lesson and many lessons from the life of Rasul Allah so Allah while he was sending a mutable anime desert Kamala Hey Assalamualaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh along
