Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Mr. Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi hmri. I'm about Welcome to another segment of CODA where tuna our role model Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Inshallah, in the upcoming few sessions, we'll be talking about how the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam treat and deal with our youth. So one thing that we learn always from the seed of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam. And to be truly honest, we have this misunderstanding. And we think that majority of the Sahaba rhodiola, Quran home around Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam were probably in their 30s 40s and

00:01:04 --> 00:01:49

50s. And above, whereas this is so far away from the reality. The truth is that majority of the Sahaba rhodiola, Tehran home, the ones that we hear about the ones that we read about the ones that made an impact in Islam, they were actually young. And the reason why it was who also Allahu Allah was some he made a very concentrated effort to build his the to build the youth around him is because this is the future of Islam. Today. Subhan Allah when we talk about our own youth in the community, it is equally important that we invest, and we trust them. And we use them to the best of their abilities. And each of our youth around us in our community, we all have very special skill

00:01:49 --> 00:02:30

sets. And so to use all them in their special skill sets way to use them to their best of their abilities. This is where Rasulullah sallallahu has some he excelled. And there were times where there was some he knew that there was one young sahabi, who was probably who could excel in one way. And then there's another Sahabi who could excel in another way. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he would use them to the to the best of their capacities. And this is what we need to do with our youth. In fact, go back to the seed of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Sahaba that we always hear about Ali Rhodiola on How old was he? When Islam first came, he was only 10 years

00:02:30 --> 00:03:13

old. And if you do the math, just do the math. When the Prophet sallallahu it was some he passed away. How old was Ali Rhodiola at that time, he was only 33, a very young man, and how he played a role in the hijra, and so forth. Inshallah, we'll talk about that. And one of the, in the upcoming segments, and then you have people like Abdullah, even Ahmed, or maybe even a Jarrah, they were 13 years old, roughly around 13 years old, occupy even a Ahmed or the otter and 14 years old, Joey bin Abdullah Zaid, even a hadith of 15 years old, and the list just goes on and on. And majority of the Sahaba that we hear about, they were actually between the ages of 1314 to around 25. And this is who

00:03:13 --> 00:03:56

the company of the province of Saddam was. Now today, I want to focus on what we need to do when it comes to our youth. And that is trusting them. The idea of trusting them is something that today we don't do in majority of our communities. See, when we talk about trusting or entrusting our youth, it means that we educate them, we teach them, we tell them what is required of them. That also means that finding the right group of people to that also means finding the right youth to and then empowering them and trusting them. This is something that the Prophet saw last time he did. Let me give you an example of what I just said. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in Makkah,

00:03:56 --> 00:04:35

go back and study to see it all the profit and we will learn that there was two pledges. One was one was based on October to Allah. And the second one was based on Allah Akbar to Fannia. And before this, the story mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was in it was the HUD season. The property is someone who's going from tend to tend to tend and in the middle, there were six people six to 10 people are some books have said I mentioned that they were from Medina, they were from the tribe of huzzah Raj, and the Prophet saw some had no intent of necessarily meaning with them. In fact, the primary son was going to the bigger tribes with the help and the assistance

00:04:35 --> 00:05:00

of oboe Viola on Long story short, the Prophet saw some he gave these six people Dawa next year is based on a lockable ruler, a handful of people they come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says one of his companions there to go and teach Islam there he goes, he teaches Islam and again the next year, another bigger batch of people they come

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

hump to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now what's here Interesting to note is that during the Hajj season, it was one of the last nights and this the Sahaba and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they all gathered at a very secluded, secluded place, a very private area, in that valley. And there the, there was this dialogue and this discussion that took place, and this is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam getting the commitment from the unsought that if I come to you, then you will take care of me. If I come, you will defend me and the Sahaba are saying the unsolved these aren't once again Osen hazards they become unsought. Once the Prophet saw him he makes hijra,

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

and the people in muckety muck Hydra to Medina, they become the unsalted the ones who have migrated they become the Mahajan. But before this, there are just Olson Huzzah, Raj, and people and from that there was one group I mean, there was one person, but then if Assad mizunara And he actually stepped forward, and he said that he reminded the people who came from Medina and he said, that old people of Medina, you do understand that this is not just a commitment. It's not just any ordinary pledge. If you commit to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that remember that some your wives may become widows, some your children may become orphans. And because we are making this commitment,

00:06:29 --> 00:07:14

that if the Prophet alayhi salam was under attack, we will protect the prophets of Salaam. Now the reason why I'm sharing this entire story in regarding the youth is this, a battle of the Allah and the uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he is there. And he is in a state of shock and bewilderment. Why is in a state of shock, is because he has no idea. If these people, the unsought or the old people have Ozan hazard if they are up for the task to protect Rasulullah saw Selim, why did he have doubt in them is because they were youth. These people who came from Medina, they were mostly youth. And it was this mindset, that the youth are just the youth. And who do they have? In

00:07:14 --> 00:07:52

fact, they will always look up to the seniors. So if when so when our boss is saying that all these people are giving their word to the province, but they're all our young, and since they're young, you know, who knows how much resources they have, how much manpower they have, how much influence they have in Medina or not. And this is why Abbas was scared, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he knew that even though they were young, and even though they were youth, if they had given their commitment to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet Solomon was willing to go with their commitment, and this is the Prophet sallallahu Sallam trusting the youth of that time,

00:07:52 --> 00:08:37

trusting the young Sahaba or Villalta, unknown and taking their word and taking a very bold step in his life in migrating to Medina. So next time, always remember that when it comes to our youth in our community, we all have to always put our trust in them. As I said earlier, we have to also gauge the situation to What did the Prophet salallahu Salam do? He sent his one of his own to Medina. And he went there, he gauged the situation. He analyzed the situation, he saw that a simple Dawa sewn by simple Dawa, so many people are coming to the fold of Islam. This is the person doing his homework, you cannot just go and put your trust in some people that you have no idea if he had the capacity to

00:08:37 --> 00:09:19

uphold their responsibility or not. But the province has some he did his homework. He did his research. He tried it out. He sent someone there, what of his own, and he came back with a very positive feedback. And remember in the second pledge of a local button, or Allah to Fannia in the second pledge, you have almost 70 men and two women that came and they're pledging on Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and for all those 72 people, imagine if there's one or two people left in Medina, how many Muslims do you have in Medina, you have, you know, you have over 200 people who are Muslims in Medina. So this is a wide problem, someone who is saw that everything the groundwork

00:09:19 --> 00:09:58

has been laid out. And these people even though they're young, they have given me their commitment. They're giving me their word, I will buy into their word next time when it comes to our youth. If we find that this is a good, a good person for the job, or a good person for the responsibility, let's educate them and let's empower them, let's, let's put our trust in them. And even if they make a mistake, and even if they if they fall down, and even if they did not properly fulfill the responsibility, that is where we step in, we educate and again, we trust them with responsibilities. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give all of us ability to understand this May Allah subhanho wa

00:09:58 --> 00:09:59

Taala make us like our
