And welcome to class number four of a Shama al al mohammedia. inshallah, in today's class, we will be discussing the white hair of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam along with did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dye his hair. And then last but not least, the usage of kohan or you or antimony in English, so be the light either that that is what is on our schedule for today, it's not going to be a very heavy class, it's
actually going to be quite a light class veillonella into either now I see people coming in Alhamdulillah I just want to make sure that today Bismillah he tala I can see your comments in sha Allah. So for those of you that are watching, if you have said something, let's see if I can see your comments.
Swipe left with your comments and reactions. Okay, I have done that and be in the light and hopefully things will show up as we begin. Okay, so let's get into it. We have quite a few headings to go through. So we're on chapter number five tonight why they can sell our hotel I want to go through a very good Allah what I can see everyone tonight, so we have Heba why the consular fellow we have no idea why they can sell off the law we have in the heater why they can sell off the law. We have love now why they called Salah welcome fella who will go to and we have on Garcia why they come Salah Welcome to LA what occurred. So chapter number five,
column Allah for him and Allah who burble major fee, Shea br Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, chapter number five. What has been narrated concerning the blessing of white hair of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So, number one is to understand though Malik did the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dye his blessing here, he replied, It did not reach that point. He had only a few white hair on his blessings, temples aboubaker or the Allahu Allah I know, however, did die is here with the hendre and ketam. So in this first Hadith, we see that the prophets of Allah while he was Salam did not have very many white here in other narrations will see from us and others, that there were approximately 14 or under 20. And unnecessarily the Allahu anhu was saying that the prophets of Allah why lucilla did not have enough white hair for them to be dyed. However, however abubaker on
the Allahu anhu did dye his hair with Hannah and with ketchup. And now all of you are familiar with, you often see people use it on either to put it on their hands, and it creates that pattern on their hands with that orange, red, you know, copper color dye. So that's one type of dye that can be used on the here, and then the other is cutsem, which is a black dye. So abubaker Allahu anhu. He didn't want to dye his hair completely by black because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had prohibited that, as we discussed yesterday, so used to combine between Hannah and Ketchum to combine between an orangish blackish hue and that is how I will buckler the Allahu anhu, used to dye his
hair, which also alludes to the fact that I will record the Allahu anhu had more whitehair than the Prophet sallallahu. It was set up, as we see in the hadith of others. And the next Hadees I did not count on the blood head or beard of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, except 14 white hair. And here we see is known by the color, the Allahu anhu is meticulously counted the number of hair like 14 is not, you know, a number that you just round to that you round up or round down to 14 No, that's not how you use the number 14. But it is a very specific number. So you can imagine that he has counted meticulously and diligently the number of white hair on the Messenger of
Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this shows us the level of preservation that they wanted to have about the details of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu our lives under no detail would go escaped. Now, obviously you'll find different directions I talked about 1417 1820 is there a need for reconciliation? No, not at all. As we've been seeing throughout this series, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did different things at different times and had a different features at different times. And there was just a natural part of progression and a natural part of aging of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the fact that unnecessarily Allah who I know narrates 14
over here, and another companion will narrate 17 or 18 yT are in another Hadith, there is no contradiction there is just a different parts of life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the next Hadeeth we find I heard Jai but even somewhat or the Allahu anhu say, When questioned about the white hair of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he would apply oil to his blasted hair, no white hair could be seen. And when he would not apply oil, just bless it here. They could be seen. So here we see that the oil that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used on his hair was
is not a translucent transparent oil but rather is an oil that had color to it. So you can imagine the, you know olive oil that we have today. It's mainly transparent, but it is also a greenish yellow in color. So if we was to get on the white clothing, it will actually leave that yellow a shoe green heel on the cloth. And similarly, the here the oil that they use at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam It was not completely transparent or translucent, but rather it did have color to it. So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to put this oil on, even his few white hair would seem as if they were dark in color, it would seem as if they were dark in
color, even though the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam himself did not dye his hair, and the next day, THEY BLESS it white hair of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam were only around 20 or so in number. The next Hadeeth aboubaker are the Allahu anhu said O Messenger of Allah, your hair has become Wait, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responded who would walk here are more Salah Amaya de ser alone. And in Assam Sukkot a lot have turned my hair white. In the next time if they said O Messenger of Allah, we see that you have started to get white here. You replied indeed, who then it sisters chapters have turned my hair white. So we can see that earlier on the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't have many white hair. But as he reflected more upon the Koran, and he contemplated contemplated the more upon the Koran, then the number of whitehair increased upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So initially, he only had white here on here in this temple area over here, particularly where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, would split his hair in the middle. And then eventually that number grew, as did the whiteness on the sides of his of his beard. And thus the number of white hair on the beard and upon the hair of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam grew. Number two, we see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam is highlighting the fact that it wasn't matters of this dunya that, you know, Christ is here to turn white. It wasn't that, you know, he lived a difficult life of loss. It wasn't that he struggled through poverty. It wasn't that, you know, he saw the hardships that his companions went through. But rather it was the Koran and his reflection upon the Koran. And then even deeper than that, it was the people that heard the message of Islam, not accepting it that caused him this anxiety, and this stress. So now let's look at the sources that are actually mentioned. So the first Hadith explicitly mentions who the waqia more so that I might have to sell alone, and either Sham
Sukkot a lot. These are the five that I mentioned here, and another Hadith and this is the more predominant one. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam refers to hold what occurred to her that the
chapter of hood and its sisters, now what does it sisters actually consist of? There's actually a difference of opinion. And then also, there are various other Hadith that talk about,
you know, similar topics. So let's see what the scholars mentioned. So we have sort of hood that is the consistent recording and all of them, we have sort of luckier we have shorter more solid, we have sudah Amaya, Tessa alone, we have a sham Sakuya rot and Hakka lava Shia Alma outage, la cama in shock, in Qatar, and Korea. These are the 12 suitors that are mentioned in the various sources. So these 12 sources, what are the underlying themes that you're going to find in them, the underlying themes are the events of the Hereafter, and then also denial of Islam. So events of the hereafter and denial of Islam. these are these are the two main reoccurring themes of the students and these
heavily weighted down upon the Prophet sallallahu. It was sent up.
And it just pained him, that people would recognize the truth, but they would not accept it for one reason or another. And this turned to the hair of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam white duty, the anxiety and stress that he felt. So what's interesting over here is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is referring to a physical phenomenon here, that how stress and anxiety can have an impact on your physical state, that the more stress and anxiety that you have, then the more white here you will have as well. But when the prophets of Allah while they were set up, it wasn't matters of this dunya it was matters of the era and upon contemplating the Koran, and this
shows that when you deeply contemplate the Koran, it will even have a physical impact on your life. It will even have a physical impact on your life. You know, the joke amongst the Imams is that if you want to grow old quickly become an Imam. If you want to grow to white here quickly become an email. You know, well let's find out Allah help us and make things easy for us. Okay, the next
Teddy's, I came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, while one of my sons was with me, I was showing the Prophet. And when I saw him, I said to myself, this is the Prophet of Allah. He was wearing two green garments. And he had some hairs that had turned white, but were red, he had some hair that were had turned white, but we're red.
So now here we see a couple of points. That number one, about him, he said to me,
he brought his son with him. And this is a you know, a piece of advice that when you're thinking of where to bring your children and whatever activities you bring your children to, they'll bring them to scholars and bring them to the massage and then bring them to halaqaat. And to gatherings, and to conferences. is a great things is a great thing. And we see that this is something that the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did, and this instilled love of Allah subhanho wa Taala love of the Messenger of Allah, love of the people of Allah subhanho wa Taala and when you can do that from a young age, inshallah, hopefully you'll have a positive impact on their life.
Number two, he was wearing two green garments. And as we mentioned previously, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would frequently wear two green garments, the upper garment known as the leader and the Lord government, as the is our and the fact that it is green over here, it is highlighted, either because it had green stripes, or because it was predominantly green, it was predominantly green, showing us the permissibility of wearing that color, and how it was a color that was socially acceptable at that time. So as we know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave disliked prohibitions for red and for yellow, but he was seeing that were in the green, he was
seen wearing green. So it shows the social acceptability of the wearing of the color green, and other narrations we have that green was the favorite color of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And the favorite type of clothing was the white striped clothing. The favorite type of clothing was the white striped clothing and that's coming up in the future chapter Bismillahi Tada. So this had the specifically mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a few white hair, but they were seen to be read, they were seen to be read. Now, again, how are they turning red, this is wanting to be coming up in the next chapter. But scholars mentioned that the
reconciliation between the hadith of others that he had such few here that he did not need to die, and Elisa Herrera the Allahu anhu that he did to dye his hair is to show that perhaps the prophets of Allah while he was celeb, used a colored oil or a colored perfume that would make his hair seemed seem colored. But in reality, they were not a dyed in reality, they were not dyed, jabbering or somewhere else Sumeragi Allah who I know was asked, Did the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have any weitere on his head? And he replied, The Messenger of Allah did not have any white hair on his Blissett eggs, except for a few strands in the middle, where it will be parted. And if
the applied oil is busted, held, the oil would conceal them. So this shows us
in chapter number five, the conclusion of chapter number five, the number of whitehair the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had and why it was Christ. Now there are other Hadith that the prophet SAW Allah who it was September 1 to whitehair as a light and as a sign of nobility. And that is why one should not pluck white hair. And this is something to emphasize again, that if you do have white hair, do not pluck them as the Prophet sallallahu eilersen I'm discouraged that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam discouraged the plucking of white hair. So now we get to chapter number six, which is concerning dyeing one's hair. Are you allowed to dye your hair we learned in the
previous chapter, that Abubakar rhodiola, who I know day to day is here, a combination between orange and black. And in this chapter, we will learn did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself, dye his hair. So I bought into and it's a continuation from the previous Hadith.
Our volumes are reported I came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with one of my sons. And he asked, Is this your son? I replied, Yes, I acknowledge him. So he said, You will not be held accountable for his crime, nor will he be held accountable for your crime, I saw some white hairs that had to been dyed red. So to understand context of this headache, prior to Islam, if any one of your family members had committed a crime, then the whole family and the tribe is responsible for compensation, and for expiation, and for any payments and accountability that needs to be made. But once Islam comes about, then no other individual is responsible for the crimes of another nor
accountable nor held responsible. So here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is explaining here, that with the coming of Islam, any crimes that your children or your ancestors have committed, you're no longer responsible for. And this hadith highlights the fact at the end, that he did have a few white here, which were dyed red. So now we're starting
To see a difference of opinion, even amongst the companions, so under served the law No, clearly said he did not have enough white hairs that needed to be dyed. And he never dyed his white here. And here we have about him Felt with the first study today that he did dye his hair red.
And the next head of Horace rajala, who I know was asked, Did the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam use die? So you can see a very explicit Hadith. And here are the Allahu anhu responded Yes. Then in the next 10 days, I saw the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam leave his home while shaking water from his blessitt head, having had just taken a bath, and on his verses ahead, were traces of hinda die, were traces of hinda die. So here is another Hadith explicitly stating that there are traces of him that die upon the head of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then the last Hadeeth of the chapter, I saw the bless it had the hair of the
Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it was died. Her mother said, our beloved Mohammed, Anakin related to us, I saw the message here of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with an a signal Malik and it was died. Now, here's what I love about Islam in the studying of Islamic sciences, because you're going to get quite a few narrations that are seemingly at opposition with one another. And from the beauty of Islam and scholarship is you see how scholars are reconciled to them. So you have answered the alojado clearly stating the private sell alone why they were selected 90 days here, and here a hora de Allahu anhu is as did the Messenger of Allah
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dye his hair? And he says, Yes, so now, what did the scholars of Islam say about these various Hadith? Number one is timing. They said that there was a time where the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam, dyed his hair, and then he stopped, there was a time where he dyed his hair, and then he stopped. So that is one opinion. Opinion number two is that in fact, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't dye his hair, but rather any color that was seen was seeing the color from oil, or forum perfume.
Number three, is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Did you his hand on his hair, but not as a dye, but rather for medicinal purposes and for cooling properties. So at that time, henna was used upon one's hair for its medicinal properties, but also for keeping the head cool. So if you had him on your hair, and
you will, you were walking out in the sun, that part that bits put on your on your head that is covered with hair that keeps the head cool, it keeps the head cool. So these are three different ways that scholars reconciled these different narrations. These are three different ways the scholars reconciled these narrations and this is from the beauty of our scholarship, and hamdulillah. That's something that I really come to appreciate, while studying the shadow of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So now we get to the last chapter, which is the kohan or antimony that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to use. So for those of you that are not familiar, I want you to think of a medicinal mascara. This is exactly what it is it is a medicinal mascara. Now when you think of mascara in our day and age, you would think of it as a very feminine product the way that perhaps it longings your eyelashes, and makes your eyes look wider, you would think of it as a very feminine product. And this is the same thing I want to highlight again, that previously when we talked about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam having braids, and plated his hair, it was perfectly fine It was not
considered feminine, but rather the prophets of Allah hi Leo Silla himself was the epitome of masculinity. So this shows us that over time, that which is socially acceptable and diverges socially masculine and socially feminine, also changes in interpretation also changes in interpretation. And that is why you will see that a different schools of thought had a different opinions on this matter. So particularly my molecular himolla. From what I understand, he discouraged the usage of kohle during the daytime for men, but he said it was fine to use it at night, and especially if it was for medicinal purposes. Why? Because at nighttime, you're at home,
no one else can see it. And thus it doesn't make the eyes look feminine. And that was his reasoning behind it. Whereas other scholars that said no, he probably saw a lot of ideas and clearly used it during the daytime and it is perfectly fine to do so and it is not considered feminine at all. So let's look at the various Hadith pertaining to coho salmon abasa de la vida with related that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said apply estimate for it. It strengthens the eyesight and boosts the growth of eyelashes. He had been our boss said that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a call container from which he would apply Cohan each night, thrice
in this one and thrice in this one. So this hadith of Abdullah bin busca de la Noma very explicit that depart
So Allah while he was still on would apply, called known as estimate, so called I want you to imagine is that type of mascara, and I'm using that term mascara very loosely, the word is antimony. But if I use antimony, not very many people are going to be familiar with it. So you can imagine it is a type of mascara. And from the types of mascara there's one in particular, that is known as estimate there is one in particular, that is known as estimate. And this is the one that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is praising for two properties. Number one, it strengthens the eyesight. And number two, it in long gains, the eyelashes and the longing of the eyelashes, it protects. staff
know just from going into the eye, but also it is a sign of beauty as well, it is a sign of beauty as well. What's really interesting, for those of you that may remember, I'm reading from this book over here coalition Milan mohammedia, printed by Mr. Mila ghazali print or publishing rather, and they have a very interesting photo that I want to share with you. Because I know some people when they go to Medina they like to buy kohan like to buy that antimony that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam used to use. But they mentioned over here that the antimony that is available today is very different. So they say that this is addressed to those with healthy eyesight. For those
suffering with ailments the use of intimate is harmful. Istomin is the well known mineral used as an antimony, it's mines which are found in the east, and it's color is reddish black. In today's time, those who wish to use kohan weather estimate or otherwise must exercise caution, since much of the coal available in the markets is contaminated with heavy metals, long term exposure to heavy metals can cause neurological respiratory and cardiovascular disorders, imbalance of hormones, hair loss, infertility, and other ailments. So this shows us that just because something is labeled son that you have to be careful of using it in this modern day and age because you know, perhaps you may be
using it in appropriately or it's not the actual product. So the call that is available nowadays in the marketplace is in Medina, that is not actually good quality code. And that may actually do more damage to your eyes than actually help it. So you want to find the pure sources of code that yes, you will be more expensive, but at least they will have those medicinal properties that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was referring to. And you know for me personally, I remember when I was in visiting Medina in the recent years and I pray that Allah subhanaw taala opens up the doors for McKenna Medina, again for us to visit. It makes it easy for us to travel there, I mean, I would
always reach out to shear Hasib node and she has ignored Mashallah, man, he was the guy with the hookups for that stuff. So he knew where to get the pure gold from it would cost like 50 to 100 reals, but you would tell him was good quality stuff away from these metals. So if you ever are in Medina, and she has you have noticed there, reach out to him and he can definitely help you find the good stuff. And if you're looking for gold, I thought Sheikh Mohammed Manya was the guy where he had this Syrian friend of his Jacob la bas that used to make these perfumes in his house, Allahu Akbar. And he was like a perfume connoisseur. Absolutely amazing. They Subhanallah you could smell the
fragrance of perfume from his apartment door and while the door is closed, it was just truly amazing. So I have those very fond memories of the MLS panatela bless them and protect them. So yes, now back to the code. Make sure if you do go, you get the pure stuff don't get the cheap market stuff that is available. The next head is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would apply aramith thrice in each eye before going to sleep. So this is a part of the previous Hadith as well. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to apply the call before going to sleep three times in this AI three times in this side. The scholars mentioned both ways are permitted where you
can do the right eye three times first, and then the left eye three times or you can do one in the right eye, and then one in the left eye. Then the second one in the right eye, second one the left eye, third one in the right eye, third one in the left eye. All of these are acceptable, but we do begin with the right eye because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began with the right and then these are these specifically mentioned that he will put it on before he goes to sleep. The next day, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, apply if medwin going to sleep, for it strengthens the eyesight and boosts the growth of eyelashes. The next head is the Messenger of Allah
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the best of your call is estimated it strengthens the eyesight and boosts the growth of eyelashes. And then last Hadith, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, apply if metaphor strengthens the iset and boosts the growth of eyelashes, and that is the end of chapter number seven. So what we learn from chapter number seven is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did recommend the using of COVID the antimonial exposed to in one's eyes, particularly before one
goes to bed. So before you go to bed, you put it on three times in each eye. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave us a reasoning behind this, that number one, it strengthens one eyesight. And number two, it beautifies the eyelashes, which shows us that everything that the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam, recommended, there was a wisdom and a reasoning behind it. And for us as believers, it is a very good habit for us to try to understand what the wisdom and reasoning behind legislation actually is. Because you can imagine if you're given a commandment to do this, or prohibition, don't to do that, but you don't know the wisdom or reasoning, what is the
likelihood that you're going to abide by it and stick to it, and it will be continuously passed down. Whereas when you have the,
the wisdom and the reasoning, I'm sorry, I'm laughing, but my son is actually banging at the door he wants to kill.
So, you know, every day is a struggle with him. Now, let's find out how to make it easy.
So what I was saying is that it's important to understand the wisdom and the reasoning behind legislation, so that you can better implement it in your own life, and remember it and then also passing it down to future generations makes more sense. We live in a day and age where people are skeptical, right, they are more skeptical than ever before. So you have to understand the reasoning behind legislation. Now, also, with this note, understand that there are certain things that are beyond our comprehension. And there's reasoning that is purely the Abu Dhabi purely for the sake of worshiping Allah subhanaw taala. So we have the beautiful narration of Allah, Allah, Allah who I
know, where he says that if faith was purely based upon logic, then we would be wiping the bottom of our feet, and not the top of them. So you know, when you make a must, you can imagine that this is the foot, when you make a must, you make must on top of your sock over here, as opposed to the bottom, even though all of the dirt is on the bottom. So why is it that we wipe the top and we do this because the LS WD meaning that it is
the reasoning behind it is because it's a command of Allah. And this is how our pious predecessors and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, taught us to do it. So the vast majority of things in our faith will have a clear, logical explanation, reasoning and wisdom behind them. But then there are also certain things there are also certain things where we just have to submit to Allah subhanaw taala. And those are far and few in between. But that faith is what is required in that submission. And that is why Islam is a religion of faith, but also a religion of logic, one where both of them are cohesive, and coherent, and not in opposition to one another. So that's what I wanted to share
