Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah him Hamid while he was a heavy edge marine about Welcome to another segment of Ottawa tuna our role model Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. You if you have not subscribed to our YouTube channel, please like, subscribe and turn on the notifications so that whenever we have a video released from Epic, Majid inshallah you will find out about it. One of the most beautiful things that we learn about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and about his interaction, especially with the youth, especially with the youth, is that the Prophet sallallahu

00:01:00 --> 00:01:48

alayhi wa sallam, he was able to overlook and overcome their shortcomings, their faults and their mistakes. Think about it. Today. We live in Muslim communities and societies, that today when we find out about a certain Muslim youth, whether it's boy or girl, and a sin that they have committed, a wrong that they have committed, believe it or not, 1520 25 years even later, people still when that name comes up, when that boy's name comes up, when that girl's name comes up, people bring up their sins, people bring up their shortcomings and their past. Brothers and sisters, our youth, yes, they will make mistakes. even think about it as parents, many parents today who are so overzealous

00:01:48 --> 00:02:33

about the fact that I want my children to be righteous. I want my child to be spiritual. Ask yourself this one question. When you were at their age, when you were at their age, how religious were you? How much religiosity did you have in your life? There's nothing wrong in expecting from your children. But do understand that today, we are living in a time where there is so much fitna that our user are surrounded with and they can easily fall into temptations, they can easily commit a sin. I'm not saying that we don't correct the problem, but I'm saying is that what we learn from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a his ability to overlook that mistake. Today I want to

00:02:33 --> 00:03:15

share with you a story of a child, a child by the name of Musa ibn Zayd, Osama even as he was a son of Zane Mahadeva, who was the adopted son of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. First of all, Zaid was very beloved to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and when he had a child with OMA Amon, and they named their child who sama this child who summer was very beloved to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. In fact, we learned that many children whenever they wanted to get something approved by Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they were sent with some immunization to the Prophet. And so we know that was someone who was very beloved to the Prophet. Now, as Osama

00:03:15 --> 00:03:53

grew up, and he was growing up around Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in the beginning days of Islam, he wants to participate in certain expeditions, and certain battles, but because of his tender age, Rasulullah sallallahu, some He prohibited it. Later on when he grew up, and he was around 1415 years old. And when the battle of trenches took place, he came again to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he sought his permission and the Prophet it is not permitted. And then afterwards, there were many expeditions that came, and there were many expeditions that were he participated with some even as he participated in. Now, today, I want to share with you one

00:03:53 --> 00:04:34

particular hadith of Osama bin Zayed, he talks about his participation and a mistake that he committed a wrong that he committed. And Russell was awesome. He held him accountable for that. So the hadith is mentioned that he was sent with a group of people and some say that this was the expedition that Celestion now, by the way, when you say the seat of the Prophet, and you stay the life of Amerigo hubub, there were there were two separate incidents, the both of them are referred to as that to sell us in the that is the lesson the majority of the people they refer to is the one that happened in the time of automotive Anahata, which was the downfall of the Sassanids or Persian

00:04:34 --> 00:05:00

empire. But there was another incident, another expedition that took place in the life of the prophet between the time of hybrid the conquest of Heyburn. And the conquest of Makkah. So during that there was some there were small events that took place, and they will not necessarily has was because when you say the cedar of the prophet, a husband is a battle expedition, where the prophet himself participated. And a Cydia is a is an expedition

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

and where the prophet did not participate himself. So this was known as a Cydia. Nonetheless, he was some even as he was sent in that. And in that battle or in that expedition, it is mentioned that they came across an enemy. Now when they came across the enemy, the enemy said La Ilaha illa Allah He proclaim, and he took the Shahada. Now the unsightly companion standing there and when he heard him say the shahada, he just left him, but with some evidence, he still took his life. Now later on, when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he found out about this, he was really upset, because this is not what our deen is about. Our deen is not about to go and take the lives of innocent

00:05:40 --> 00:06:19

people. And this has been said and demonstrated and emphasized by the Prophet SAW, cielo on numerous occasions throughout his entire life, that Islam is a mercy. Now, when the Prophet Allah when the Prophet alayhi salam was, you know, when they when they all came back to the Prophet alayhi salam, it was a nature of the Prophet alayhi salam, that he would inquire that What happened during the expedition, and they will talk about all the issues they would run into. And based on this, how the Prophet alayhi salam, he would give the answer, and what he will tell them. This is why this is where many of our filthy opinions they come from these kinds of gatherings, the prophet would

00:06:19 --> 00:06:59

entertain them, find out what happened on the expedition. Now, when Osama bin Laden came back Rasulullah sallallahu some already knew about this. And the Prophet Allah you son was really, really upset. And he called him some eminence aid. And he said to somebody who say that, did you actually kill someone? After the fact that they said Elijah in Allah? And he says, Yeah, rasool Allah, he said it out of fear. He is the enemy. It's a battle taking place. People are already taking the lives of other people. So when we came across him, he said, Now you hate Allah, not because he actually believed in it, but out of fear. That is when Rasulullah sallallahu it he was some he said,

00:06:59 --> 00:07:42

a very well known saying to him, he says a financial cockta on Alby that, did you open up his chest? How did you analyze his intention? Did you open up his chest to see what he was saying with what intention, he was saying, That's not your place to say, if he said Lyda Hill Allah, then he requires safety from you. And some urbanization said that the province or some kept on emphasizing on this, that he wished that that was the day that he accepted Islam, meaning that if that is the day he accepted Islam, then as we all know that when you convert to Islam, that all the passes forgiven. So he's wishing that that was the day he wouldn't have converted and taking the Shahada. But this is

00:07:42 --> 00:07:59

the province of Santa holding Oussama even as a accountable. So I'm not saying that we should not hold our youth accountable. We need to hold them accountable. But here's the problem that we have in our Muslim community. And this is where we learn so much from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Listen to this very carefully.

00:08:00 --> 00:08:42

If today, once again, if there was someone in our community who did something wrong, we will remember it for so many years. Imagine if that child's name or that youth, his his or her name came up regarding some volunteer service in the community. Many of us will will say that because they did such and such, let's not do that. Let's not give them the responsibility. Let's keep them away from us. Rasulullah sallallahu it was some despite the fact that what it was some evidence they did. He never held that mistake, or that wrong that he did, he never held it against him. See, this is what we need to do today. We have many youth today who have done wrong. And in fact, I can confidently

00:08:42 --> 00:09:24

say that every one of us we have done something wrong, and we have skeletons in our closet. And if people were to find out what wrong we have done, perhaps we will not be able to even show our face in the community. Allah subhana wa Tada has concealed our sins for the most part. But when we find out about someone else's wrongdoings, we should not hold later on in their life. We should never hold their past against them. If they have turned around their life and they have come closer to Allah. It is absolutely wrong to hold their pass against them. Rasulillah Salam, two years later, not 10 years later, just two years later, Rasulullah sallallahu some he calls with some

00:09:24 --> 00:09:59

immunizations right before he passed away. And he made him a leader of an expedition think about this. He did wrong just two years later, also some is a holding his past against him. And not only that, but let me share this also with you this because because this is very interesting. The leader, he was a leader of the expedition. Do you know who else was in that expedition? You had the likes of obika acidic or the yellow time or even a hot tub Rhodiola time Saudi workers call her zubaid aprobado even a gyro you have these

00:10:00 --> 00:10:46

These amazing companions, like great Sahaba, who were in that expedition, the Prophet did not make any one of them a leader, he made Osama urbanization, a leader that shows that the Prophet alayhi salam was willing to look past his past, he was willing to move forward. And he made him a leader. And believe it or not, just like today, imagine if there is a young man who has made a leader over someone who is considered as a very experienced person. Today, people will get offended. A person who was might be 1520 2530 years older than the Junior, they will get upset. And people didn't come to the province of Salem. And they did object to the Prophet SAW Salem. And they did say that how

00:10:46 --> 00:11:31

can a young man and he was only 20 years old, some books mentioned that he was only 18 years old. And the Prophet alayhi salam is approached by some people that how can this person he's a junior, he's a rookie, and what does he know about you know, taking care of an expedition. And here you have bigger companions, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he got on the pulpit, and he said that when I assigned his father to be a leader, people objected. Today, again, people are objecting, and this is my decision. And then he asked them believers, he asked the people in the expedition that please help him, please support him and help him fulfill his objective and his mission. The

00:11:31 --> 00:12:13

Prophet it is some is a p is appealing to them. But nonetheless, the Prophet did not remove Osama urbanization, from that position of leadership. Brothers and sisters, what we learned from all this is number one, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his ability to overlook the mistakes and the wrongdoings of his youth. And number two is giving them a platform where they can be leaders for the community, be leaders for the society, and be leaders for the future. Today. Are we willing to do that or not? This is why we study the life of the prophet saw Selim and how he treated everyone around him, even the youth and how he treated them. This is why we this is why we learn these

00:12:13 --> 00:12:33

stories. I asked Allah subhanaw taala to give us ability to become like Rasulillah salam to become like Ross was some in the way that when we come across our youth were able to treat were able to work with our youth. The way the Prophet SAW was able to work with him. I mean noble Alameen Docomo Allah Hi Assalamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh in
