Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:00:27--> 00:00:30

in Al Hamdulillah Nakamoto, who wants to

00:00:32--> 00:00:35

build a human sorry unforeseen a woman say?

00:00:37--> 00:00:38

Hello, hello la medalla

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

de la

00:00:42--> 00:00:54

ilaha illallah wa de la sharika wash I don't know Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa not only he was talking to me, he was sending them at a Sleeman kathira about

00:00:57--> 00:01:07

I remember I was in the city of Edmonton a couple of weeks ago. And we were doing like a promo event for a class coming up, just by show of hands, how many people are from Edmonton.

00:01:10--> 00:01:33

And just, interestingly enough, the same people that are coming up, put your hands down, while I was doing the event, you know, the rooms already for the free Friday, and it just seemed like, you know, it's like one busload after another, people are walking in, you know, one after another. And then right now it is like, brothers can see this in your heads anyways, there's like a whole like truckload of stuff that just came in as well. And that moment just rerun through my head.

00:01:35--> 00:02:11

So last night after, shake Mohammed's talk, you know, it got me thinking about the concept of being a man and the concept of having role models for the youth. And I really reflected on that point. And one point that he mentioned is that a lot of the youth these days, and I guess, you know, you could say for the longest time, I've been taking athletes and you know, people who participate in sports, as the role models and people who will be following emulate. And this becomes quite disturbing, it really becomes quite disturbing. Because if you look at some of the role models and some of the athletes in what they're up to these days, you know, yesterday, Sheikh Mohammed mentioned Kobe

00:02:11--> 00:02:27

Bryant, I remember, you know, when I was teaching at the Sunday school, you ask the kids, you know, who's your favorite basketball player, and they're saying Kobe Bryant. Now, for those of you who don't know, the details, Kobe Bryant's, you know, possibly, and arguably, is one of the best basketball players playing right now. And then Michael Jordan.

00:02:28--> 00:02:39

But that's besides the point. But the point being, you know, even an individual like Kobe Bryant, if you look at some of the things that he's been through, like he was accused of, you know, statutory rape, he was accused of, you know,

00:02:41--> 00:03:14

being unfaithful to his wife, and things like that. us taking these sorts of individuals as role models, you know, what do you expect them to pick up from those type of people? And then, you know, I was thinking like, even guys like Tiger Woods, you know, for the longest time, he was like, Mr. Nice Guy in sports never did anything wrong. He was intelligent. He played really well. He had sportsmanship very confident. And then you look at him now. And you know, he's like an individual who has to go through rehab, not for drugs, not for alcohol, but for like another form of abuse, which is just absolutely terrible. And I really contemplated this fact. And I was like, Subhanallah,

00:03:15--> 00:03:49

you know, as Muslims, we have this shortcoming, that we have the greatest role models that have ever existed, but are short falling on shortcoming falls into the fact that we don't introduce the people to these role models. And at that point, I really thank Allah subhanho wa Taala, that this workshop and this seminar is taking place, this seminar known as May Allah subhanho, wa Taala, be pleased with them without the last line home will probably one of the most be one of the most life changing experiences for all of you. You know, rather than learning about how many points someone scored, or you know, where they went to college, and played basketball, and so on and so forth, you're studying

00:03:49--> 00:04:23

the individuals whom Allah subhanho wa Taala said he was pleased with them, you're studying the individuals, some of which, you know, were guaranteed paradise while they were still alive. These individuals, if you were to emulate them, you have pretty much guaranteed your path to paradise. So I thank Allah subhanho wa Taala, for that opportunity. And I thank Allah subhanho wa Taala that I'm here right now, being able to share the best of those individuals. You know, a lot of the times, speakers, they don't like to be the first speaker in the morning, and you can see why. Because, you know, people are still waking up, people are still coming into the lecture hall, people are gonna be

00:04:23--> 00:04:50

late. They don't like that to happen during that lecture, their lectures. But for me specifically, I wasn't too concerned about the audience. I was like, inshallah, whoever shows up, I can tell these people are going to be dedicated, and they're really going to appreciate what I have to say. And they're going to be here to listen about the best individual that has come on this planet after the prophets and messengers of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So keeping that in mind, I want you to stay focused in this lecture, and I'm going to give you a small introduction to the lecture.

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

Today within lights either the first part of this seminar is going to be about the qualifier of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam though

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

People who stepped up as the leaders of Islam after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you individuals right now, in this room, you're no longer the average layman, but rather, you have now officially become students of knowledge. And there are certain things that are expected from the student of knowledge, which I want to share with you right now. Right now, when you have become a student of knowledge, Allah subhanho wa Taala has raised your status above the rest of mankind. And you have to manifest that in your actions and in your attitude. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in certain images de la yafai, lavender, Dena, mahnomen, como La Nina, El Mirage, that Indeed Allah

00:05:36--> 00:06:18

subhanho wa Taala has raised in status and in rank from amongst you, those who have been granted a man and those who have been granted knowledge and be the lights Allah, all of you here today will fulfill both of those qualifications. So that is something to keep in mind. Now being a student of knowledge, you will want to write down everything that is being said, right now, you're not here to be moved just as a lecture, but rather, you're here to take notes. And what you particularly want to focus on are those points that will relate to you and those points that you can implement in your life. historical information is just as important and as good as much of it as you can implement in

00:06:18--> 00:06:33

your life, as we're in terms of knowing dates, and annoying names of individuals that will not benefit you in the slightest up and until you can do something about it and implement it in your daily lives. So that is what I want you to focus on being the heater. And

00:06:34--> 00:06:59

point number two is in terms of an introduction to this seminar. We're talking about the most noble and elite people that have come on this planet. And you will be discussing issues which are very sensitive in nature. It is a fitna that happened during the time of the companions or their loved one home. And particularly when you get into the stories of a man and an era, their love and home, you will want to keep this in mind.

00:07:01--> 00:07:37

Even Samia, one of the great scholars of Islam he said that the fitna that happened in their time, it is a fitna that our swords were saved from so let our tongues be saved from it as well. Meaning when we come to talk about Othman and Ali, things happen during their time, a lot of people don't understand the reality of it, but inshallah the speakers that are coming, they're going to do justice to their topics. And this is just an introduction to the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that each and every one of them, Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with if they met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the state of Islam and they died that way.

00:07:38--> 00:08:19

then know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with them and know that Bismillah hits Ana they are going to paradise. So they are guaranteed something which we are not guaranteed in this room right now. So please keep that in mind. Just to give you two examples of this, Allah subhanho wa Taala says and sort of the Toba and I am number 100 a sub one and a well known mineral Mahajan ina will answer one levena vero home beach, San Antonio de la Juan home what are the one this is very important to understand my dear brothers and sisters, Allah subhanho wa Taala says a sub opponent a well known that the predecessors and those who came first mineral mohajir in one answered from those

00:08:19--> 00:09:04

people who were the companions of Makkah, and those people who were the companions of Medina, and those who follow them in righteousness inshallah us included in them. Allah subhana wa tada is pleased with them, and they are pleased with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Meaning in this ayah Allah subhanho wa Taala has included and incorporated every single Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he is pleased with them. Point number two, just to emphasize this very fact as to how great their status in Islam actually is. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, By Allah swearing by Allah subhanho wa Taala By Allah, if any individual was to give gold the size of

00:09:04--> 00:09:44

ama amount or hide in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala gold, the size of Mount Hood, we're talking about, you know, a nine kilometer radius of mountains, that amount of gold in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala they would still not be equivalent, or even come close to becoming equal to the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam meaning that you could dedicate your whole life to Islam right now, give everything that you have, and you would still not be equal to their footsteps or to their feet, or any other parts of the companions are the Allahu anhu. So Allah subhanho wa Taala has given them this noble status, and it is our responsibility as Muslims as a

00:09:44--> 00:09:50

part of our creed and our faith that we give them this veneration and this respect that he deserves.

00:09:51--> 00:09:58

Now with that, having been said, we go on to Abu Bakar radi Allahu tada and the Khalifa of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

When

00:10:00--> 00:10:35

I was thinking about this topic and how I want to approach it. I thought, you know, 15 minutes is a lot of time to share someone's biography. And then I started preparing my notes. And it's like, you know, I've covered his birth and I was like, Okay, we have 30 minutes of material here right now, what do I do for the next 20 minutes. So I really had to, you know, chunk down a lot of the stuff I wanted to talk about. And that's why the Knights Allah, I'm going to try to focus more on the lessons that we can derive from his life and from his philosophy, rather than trying to share too many historical points of benefit, the historical points of benefits, you yourselves can look up in

00:10:35--> 00:11:13

books pertaining to the life of Abu Bakar da da da one. But in terms of the morals and lessons, you know, they might not be easy for everyone to, to extract and to derive. So that is what I wanted to focus on. Now, when it comes into the lives of virtuous people the likes of Abu Bakr, radi Allahu taala, and who you will see that in every moment of their lives, there's a point of benefits that you can derive, there is a point of benefit that you can derive. So starting off firstly with Abu Bakar radi Allahu taala. And who's actually in the actual name yesterday, Sheikh Mohammed he mentioned that there is this concept of Kenya in Arabic culture that I title or a pet name that

00:11:13--> 00:11:54

individuals are given and are summoned by an Abu Bakar, the Allahu taala. And who this was actually one of his certainly his pet names or pseudo names, I guess you could call it. His real name, in fact, was not Abu Bakar but rather before Islam, Abu Bakar was known as Abdullah Kava. He was known as the servant of the Kaaba. And when he accepted Islam, he and he and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam knew of this he changed aboubaker his name to Abdullah. So once he accepted Islam, his name was changed to Abdullah. And if you look at his lineage within the heights, either you'll see that there's something very particular about his lineage, just to mention a couple of things. His

00:11:54--> 00:12:12

complete name was Abdullah, ignore of mine, ignore me ignore Mr. Qureshi. So his father's name was Earth mine, his grandfather was Ahmed and his great grandfather was amor. Now all of these individuals had a noble status in the Quraysh tribe, and his father

00:12:13--> 00:12:14

of man.

00:12:16--> 00:12:52

Actually, we'll get to him in a second with the Knights Allah. So that was his name and his lineage. And he actually was born two and a half years after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born at what was known as Iman field, or the year of the elephant, when the Kaaba was being attacked by abre. You know, back in the day, they didn't have you know, a system for numbering the years, but rather any main event or major events that took place in history. That is what the year would be remembered by. So the year that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born in was known as Iman field, or the year that the elephant came, and it was

00:12:52--> 00:13:02

attempted to destroy the Kaaba Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala, and was born two and a half years after that event, so he was younger to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:13:04--> 00:13:41

And in terms of his physical characteristics, Abu Bakar, the Allahu taala and was known to be someone who was very white in complexion, someone who was very skinny, yet he had this presence that demanded respect when he walked into a room. You know, a lot of the times you see like these really skinny scrawny individuals, and they'll seem like they're lacking confidence. I don't know if you remember what Sheikh Mohammed was talking about yesterday with like the youth in like high school today, if you like hit their arm do this, like why go down? That's what happens to a lot of people who are like really skinny and out of shape and you know, don't care but Abu Bakar Adela hotel and

00:13:42--> 00:14:21

even though he was really skinny, he was an individual who demanded respect by his presence. He walked in very confidently walked like a man very, you know, boasting of his confidence. Now it was mentioned that Abu Bakr radi Allahu tanauan was actually a hunchback, meaning that his back would slightly tilt over. And this actually became problematic. There was a famous Hadith where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam talked about how a man's garments should not go below his ankles. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned that whatever is below the ankles would be in the Hellfire and Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala. When he heard of this, he said Yara Sula,

00:14:21--> 00:14:54

Allah, you know, I'm unable to control this point, meaning that I wear my garment. I try to keep it above my ankles. But you know, due to my hunchback, the garment always goes down. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wants to tell them that you're abubaker you're not one of those individuals whose pride is feared from meaning that you're not an individual who has arrogance or pride in him. So that very point that he was a hunchback actually caused problems for him at certain times. But still Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu, even with that was one of the most revered companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

So now talking a bit about his father, his father, we mentioned

00:15:00--> 00:15:43

was earthman and as mine likewise Heidi Konya as well, his cornea was Abu hanifa. That is what a lot of people know him as as Abu hanifa. And what was interesting about Abu hanifa was the very fact that even though Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu, I'd accepted Islam. Abu hanifa did not go and accept Islam up and until the opening of Mecca, meaning our book, Guardiola has been with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for you know, about 22 years now. And 22 years later of giving Dawa, that is when his father actually accepted Islam when Makkah opened up. Now, when this happened when he accepted Islam, there was a very beautiful incident that took place, and it shows you the level

00:15:43--> 00:16:01

of respect the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had for the elders. So Abu hanifa accepted Islam, and he came with Abu Bakar to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And Abu Bakar tells the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam era sola Allah. This is my father and hamdulillah today he has accepted Islam.

00:16:02--> 00:16:41

And listen to the response of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, Yeah, abubaker only if you had told me in advance so that I could have gone to see him, only if you had told me in advance so that I could go to see him. And this shows you again that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as busy as he was in his schedule, he took time out for two things, one for his close companions, and two for the elders in the community. So for his close companions, he gave them special time gave them special privileges. And when they came to the elders in the community, he would actually want to be the one to go and see them rather than they coming to see him. And this is

00:16:41--> 00:16:55

why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that he is not from us, He who does not show the rights of the elders, and does not have mercy upon the youth. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam actually went on to manifest this.

00:16:56--> 00:16:59

As we're the mother of Abu Bakar de la one.

00:17:00--> 00:17:42

Her name was Salma bent, suffer, and she had the cornea of Oman side, she had the cornea of Oman side. Now, unlike the father of Abu Bakar, she actually accepted Islam and very early on, she accepted Islam very early on. And this shows you something very crucial, you know, in our times, we liked him off those men insha Allah that have very close relationships with their mothers, you know, we like to call them Mama's boys. You know, there are individuals who are spoiled, and you know, their moms take care of them. This is sort of the relationship that Abubakar della Juan had with his mother, he was a mama's boy, but at the same time, he was a man at the same time. So when it came

00:17:42--> 00:18:01

time to giving Dawa, that is what gave presidents to, to his mother. He knew that he had a close relationship already, and that his mother trusted him. And that is why as soon as he accepted Islam, one of the first individuals that he wants to was to his mother, because he knew he had a special relationship that she would accept Islam right away.

00:18:02--> 00:18:34

In terms of the other family that Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu had throughout his life. He got married four times, meaning throughout his life, he had he got married four times. And from those four wives, there are two of them in particular that you would want to familiarize yourselves with. There are two of them in particular that you will want to familiarize yourselves with. The first one was katella. Her name was katella. And the second one was on Roman, the second one was on Roman.

00:18:35--> 00:18:46

As for katella, she was the mother of two of his children, two of them being Abdullah and asthma, two of them being Abdullah and a snob.

00:18:47--> 00:19:27

As for Ahmed Roman, she was the mother of eyeshadow della Juana and the mother of the rock man, she was the mother of Isola, the Allahu Allah and of the ramen. As for katella, the scholars have actually deferred did she accepted Islam or not? Did she accept Islam or not? Because before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came with his message, Abu Bakar had already divorced her aboubaker had already divorced her and it is not really known. What happened after that. There was only one incident recorded after that time, where she is brought back into the scenario I guess you could say, and that was when she came to visit her daughter a smile. She came to visit her daughter

00:19:27--> 00:19:59

a smile and she asked the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Yara Salalah my mother who has a non Muslim is coming to visit me, should I treat her with honor and respect and treat her as a guest of mine? Or should I have this form of separation and lack of allegiance towards her and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the very fact that she is your mother, she should be honored and respected and normalized as a guest. So it is not known if she actually accepted Islam and scholars differed over this and Allah subhana wa

00:20:00--> 00:20:43

Allah knows best. But it seems that she did not accept Islam. As for the second wife of his own Roman, she was the mother of eyeshadow, the Allahu taala. And her, and she was probably the most beloved wife of Abu Bakar. She was probably the most beloved wife of Abu Bakar. And she accepted Islam with Abu Bakar or shortly thereafter. And he was she was the wife that Abu Bakar radi Allahu tonon spent the most amount of time with now just to give you a small introduction to his children before we move on to his virtues, and the lessons that we can derive. When you get to his children Subhanallah you see something even more particular, that good fathers and good parents, they will

00:20:43--> 00:21:06

produce good children. And you will see that in the lives of each of his children, there is a lesson and immoral that could be learnt. So starting off with the most eldest of his children, or I guess, the most eldest of the sons, and that is Abdul Rahman. Abdur Rahman was the eldest of all of abubaker sons, and he had three sons and three daughters. So we'll give a brief introduction to all of them within the height

00:21:07--> 00:21:49

of the man, the son of Abu Bakar, he accepted Islam after the Treaty of Libya roughly around the eighth year of the law, and a very interesting conflict or scenario took place during the Battle of Baghdad during the Battle of budget. Now, the Battle of bothered when it took place, the unsought or the people of Medina, you know, they've been embargoed by the Corporation, and the people around them, no one's trading with them, their money and wealth has been stolen, because they migrated from Makkah, and a lot of problems are happening. So Birla brother comes about, and this is the first time that the immigrants of Makkah, are now meeting again with the kurush. And from those immigrants

00:21:49--> 00:21:56

of Makkah, was of the rough man, the son of Abu Bakar. And Abu Bakar is in the battlefield with

00:21:58--> 00:22:40

with the Muslims. So now imagine this, that your very son is in front of you. Obviously, in the battlefield, you want to try to avoid your own family member, you don't want to harm your own family member. But a time came when exactly that happened. Man was faced with Abu Bakar rhodiola, Juan and Abdullah man being in a state of other than Islam, he still had this mercy and conscious in his heart that even though they're on the battlefield, aboubaker is under his sword, he has the chance to harm him. And he says, Oh, my father, you are under my sword. But I just can't find it in me to harm you or inflict any pain upon you. Now, you know, you may be thinking or how sweet you know, he

00:22:40--> 00:23:19

cares about his father. But I want you to listen to what the luevano said. He says, Oh, my son had this scenario been reversed, then know that you would have been shown no mercy whatsoever. And I thought about this Pinilla, here's an individual who's showing mercy to his father. And he's showing this compassion and kindness. But I will walk out of the law one still had his priorities straight. That right now at that very time, it was the battlefield. It wasn't a time for compassion and mercy. But this is a time to set the playing field straight. Now, at that very moment, Abu Bakar and Abdul Rahman they parted ways, and they weren't seen again. But you can imagine the effect that must have

00:23:19--> 00:23:55

had on a man that you know, this is what Islam is all about, that you're the father doesn't show mercy to his son. Is that what Islam really is. So this lingered in his mind, up until the Treaty of Abia took place up and until the Treaty of Abia took place that is one of the most accepted Islam. And when he accepted Islam, he came to avacado de la Han. And you know, this thought is lingering in his mind. And he's thinking that when I go to Abu Bakar, you know, the first thing is probably going to do is he's probably going to slap me around and say, Why did it take you so long to accept Islam. But that was not the case. The second he accepted Islam, he went up to his father, and his father

00:23:55--> 00:24:36

embraced him just like the day that he was born. He showed him a level of compassion, and a degree of love that you know, only a father and son can realize, Allah subhanho wa Taala has created a special bond between a father and a son, that even though they may not express their love, verbally for one another, that level of veneration, that degree of compassion and love is automatically there. And he said, when I accepted Islam, it was as if the day I was just born, and my father was holding me for that first time. And I could feel the love transcend from his heart into his limbs. And to me, it was love that did not need to be spoken, but it was a love that was being felt.

00:24:37--> 00:25:00

Then his son Abdullah, his second son, Abdullah, he was a lot more accepting of Islam when his father accepted Islam. You know, Abdullah accepted Islam at that time as well. And he played a very pivotal role during the migration of the Muslims from Mecca to Medina, as we know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Abu Bakar Adela

00:25:00--> 00:25:24

I travel together from Mecca to Medina. And an incident came where they were stuck in a cave for three days. They were stuck in a cave for three days. And Abdullah the center of Abu Bakar. At this time, he was the one who would be bringing food and news to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and to Abu Bakar. So meaning that his life is literally out of danger, because the Quraysh know that, that

00:25:25--> 00:26:04

Abdullah, he's the one who's going to be going to see his father and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So that is why in the darkest depths of the night, when nothing could be seen, he would risk his life going to the cave, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was, and where Abu Bakar was, and would give them news as to what was going on, and will give them food. And it was mentioned that Abdullah, just due to that very incident, became the most beloved child out of all of his children out of all the male children to Abu Bakar, La Jolla Juan. And this goes on to show us another lesson that it is only normal that a parent will love and will prefer one child over

00:26:04--> 00:26:33

another. This is something that you don't really have control over a child that pleases you more, and does more for you and sacrifices more for you, you will love them more, and you will prefer them more. But even this love and this preference did not prevent Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu from doing justice, that needs to be Keep in mind, just because we have preference off of one individual over another. It does not mean that we treat other people unjustly, but rather Abu Bakar treated all of his children the same.

00:26:34--> 00:27:17

And then, as for his last son, he named him Mohammed. He named his last son, Muhammad, and he was the youngest of all the sons of Abu Bakar. Now, interestingly enough, Mohammed was not raised in the house of Abu Bakar. Mohammed was not raised in the house of Abu Bakar. But rather Mohammed was raised in the house of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allahu taala, was put in charge of his upbringing and in charge of his nurturing. Because early on the Allahu anhu, at that time, did not have many children, and he had time to take care of the likes of Mohammed. So he established a very close relationship with Allah, Allah, Allahu Allah, and so much so that when aliotta de la

00:27:17--> 00:28:02

Juana was choosing governors for the various lines, he actually chose Mohammed to be a governor of Egypt, he actually chose Mohammed to be a governor of Egypt. And it shows you the close relationship that Abu Bakar and Ali rajala, Juan Omar actually had, so much so that he would trust his own son, we will trust Alia, with his own son, to take care of him and to nurture him. So this necessitates that there was a degree of respect and a degree of a close bond and relationship between the two. So those were the male children of Abu Bakar rajala one. Now getting to his daughters, he had three daughters. They're the first one and oldest of them being a snob, the oldest of them being a snap.

00:28:03--> 00:28:45

Now the interesting story about a smart is that she married xurveys Abner one, she married zubayr awam. And she gave birth to the noble companion of de la ignaz obeyed. So it's a bit of no one has this great warrior, this great leader of Islam, and likewise, his son of the Londoners, Albert became this great leader as well. Now I want you to think of something and that is think of the oldest individual that you know, Muslim or non Muslim. Just think of the oldest individual that you know. And you may think, Okay, this individual is going bald, they've lost most of their teeth. When they speak, you know, they don't make too much sense. And you know, they're very forgetful. But

00:28:45--> 00:28:52

Allah subhanho wa Taala, blessed, a smart, the daughter of a bucket, that at the age of 100, she lived,

00:28:53--> 00:29:19

you know, the longest out of all of his children, she lived past 100 years old. And it was mentioned that even at the age of 100, she was still able to narrate Hadith. At the age of 100, she was still able to give guidance to the halifa of the oma at that time, at the age of 100, she was still able to perform those noble and virtuous deeds. So let's find out what's gonna put something very special in the heart. And in the body of the law one.

00:29:21--> 00:29:58

One of the authors mentioned that the reason why this was done is because a smell of the law one, she paid a lot of attention as to how she was in her youth. She paid a lot of attention as to how she was in her youth. She dedicated herself to Islam, worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala throughout the day, and dedicated herself to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his mission. and due to that dedication, Allah subhanho wa Taala gave her extra strength and extra ability in her old age, and will actually come back to us model yelahanka in a bit, because there was something very, very important that took place through her lineage. Bismillah hates Ana

00:30:00--> 00:30:09

Then we get to eyeshadow de la who Tanana Oman momineen, the mother of the believers. Now I showed her the Allahu taala and her, she deserves a lecture on her own.

00:30:11--> 00:30:29

We mentioned yesterday the close relationship that I showed her the logo on her head with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And I guess one point that just needs to be elaborated on is that there's a very controversial topic that comes to eyeshadow della Han. And that was the age that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got married to her.

00:30:31--> 00:31:12

It is said that when the contract was written, the act Tunica was written for Isla de la Juana and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Isla de la Juana was only six years old. And when she moved in with the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasalam, meaning they actually started to live together. She was nine years old at that time. And when it comes to Western academia, and orientalist version of Islam, this becomes a very critical and scrutinizing point. They claim that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a pedophile, and say all sorts of terrible things, but I want you to to bring you to your attention. One important thing that we know the Quraysh hated the prophets of Allah

00:31:12--> 00:31:53

Juan, you send them with a deep hatred and passion, every single terrible and bad name they could think of, they gave to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they called him a crazy man. They called him a magician. They called him a poet. They called him a destroyer of homes. They called him as someone who was, you know, basically someone who had no mercy and compassion, and all sorts of things were said about him. But never, ever did the courage called the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, a PDF file or anything of that nature. And this just goes on to show you that during that time, it was customary that these two things took place. Now, just because times have changed in our

00:31:53--> 00:32:29

times, and it is no longer acceptable that you know, people get married at that age. And I agree that in our times, it's not acceptable that people should not be getting married at the age of six and nine, because they love them. maturity is in there, that level of responsibility isn't there. But back in those days, this concept of being a child, it ended around that age of eight and nine, I showed the law, one that she hit puberty at that age, and she had the attributes of a woman at that time. So therefore, it was acceptable. And this is why not once did the Quran ever refer to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a PDF file. So now when it comes to Chateau de la Juana, this

00:32:29--> 00:33:04

becomes a pivotal point. Because as we know, in terms of males that narrated Hadith from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the individual that married the most I did was abhorrent. He accompanied the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as much as he could. But obviously, he could not go into the house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and narrate what took place. And this is why the scholars mentioned that it was of a great wisdom that Allah subhanho wa Taala chose eyeshadow de la Juana to be the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because not only was she young, so her mind was fresh, she was, she was able to take in a lot, but she had the

00:33:04--> 00:33:40

sharpest of memories. So when they came to those incidents that happened in the home of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam and those things that happened in seclusion, that is why I showed her the Allahu taala and her became the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from wisdom of Allah, because Muslims not only needed to know the public life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but they needed to know the private life as well. Because this is a part of our life and we are told and commanded to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in each and every aspect of our lives. So there was a great wisdom that Allah subhanho wa Taala chose, I shot the Allahu Tanana

00:33:41--> 00:33:42

one last point to mention

00:33:43--> 00:34:02

is that, you know, you'll come to see this in a little bit. But when you truly love an individual, when you're literally in love with an individual, you will want to follow every single one of their footsteps. And if that love is true, Allah subhanho wa Taala will actually allow that. And I'm going to explain how

00:34:03--> 00:34:09

the years that we die in are not in our control, we will never know when we are going to die.

00:34:10--> 00:34:53

But I showed the Allahu on her. She had this infatuation and good infatuation with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that everything that he did, the way he lived his life, even the way that he died, I showed the love and I wanted to die in the exact same way. And you see this, that's vanilla, what are the chances that individuals will die in the exact same age as the prophets of Allah hanya center and you'll come to see that Abu Bakar della Han dies at the age of 63. I shadowed the Allahu Allah died at the age of 63. And this just goes on to show you the when you truly love something for the sake of Allah, and you, you know, emulate the way of life that Allah subhanho wa

00:34:53--> 00:35:00

Taala wants you to emulate, that everything will fall into place, even those things that are beyond your control and

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

That is why I showed the law that even when she died, she died at the exact same age as the profits of the lohani. Who said them.

00:35:07--> 00:35:51

Now one last incident that took place and this leads us into the last daughter is before Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu passed away. He told our Chateau de la junta that you have another sister, you have two sisters? She said, Yeah, oh, my father, I know of a smart, but who is my third sister, who is my third sister. And then aboubaker. He told I showed her the law that in the stomach of Habiba, who was a wife of Abu Bakar is a daughter that is about to be born. Now, at that time, obviously, they don't have those scans. They don't have he can't really tell what the gender is going to be. But this was something that I was inspired into Abu Bakar de la Juan, so that he could know what the

00:35:51--> 00:36:27

gender was going to be. And that is what he told I shadowed Yolanda. And this leads us into the third and last daughter, who was actually born after the death of Abu Bakar rhodiola Juan, and that was uncle film, Uncle film was the last Daughter of Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala. Now, this actually becomes quite sad in the sense that this is a daughter of the greatest Khalifa in Islam, that never actually got to meet her father, and SubhanAllah. Just because the very fact that she didn't get to meet her father, a lot of the historians actually neglected her. You know, when it comes to a biography,

00:36:28--> 00:37:02

you see, like two or three lines, but when it comes to everyone else's biography of his children, you have like page after page. And when I was going through this, I'm trying to find more information. But sadly, more information wasn't there. And I was like, Subhanallah, this is just like another virtue of having such a great father and being actually able to meet him that if you had just met him, you know, pages are being written down about you. But the very fact that you didn't get to meet your father, and you can get to meet this great companion and Khalifa of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it deprived you of that legacy, as well. So one last point that

00:37:02--> 00:37:44

I want to mention about his children and his lineage. Is that Abu Bakar radi Allahu anhu. We know that his lineage was blessed that a man was firmly ingrained in his heart and is transcended into his children as well. And he was one of about three companions altogether, that four generations, four generations were companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So through aboubaker for generations, were companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam starting off with a smile on a buco half and the father of a burger, he accepted Islam and the father of Mecca. Then you have Abu Bakar, his son, who was the great companion and Khalifa, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:37:44--> 00:38:26

sallam, then you have a smart, who is the daughter of Abu Bakar. And then you have Abdullah Abu Zubaydah, who was the son of a smart, these four individuals four generations from the lineage of Abu Bakar. And they were all companions of the Prophet sallallahu annual center. And it shows you how if one individual dedicates himself to Islam, Allah subhanho wa Taala actually goes on to bless that lineage. Just like the lineage of Ibrahim, you see that his lineage it was filled with a lineage of prophethood, you had Ibrahim, who had a staff who had Yaqoob, who had use of all of them being prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And it all started off with Ibrahim. Similarly, over

00:38:26--> 00:38:33

here, aboubaker took his Islam to the next level, and Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed his lineage.

00:38:34--> 00:39:16

Now we get on to the virtues of a worker or their loved one. And this is like the majority or was supposed to be the majority of my lecture. But unfortunately, there are only 12 minutes left Subhanallah so we're going to try to do the best that we can with this within the heats Allah. His first virtue was the very fact that he was acidic. He was the most truthful individual and the most accepting of the truth. And he was actually given this title when the incident of a lesser evil Mirage happened. Putting this incident into its proper context. Back then there were no planes, there are no cars, there were no forms of quick or fast transportation that we have today. So when

00:39:16--> 00:39:56

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam claimed that he went from Makkah to Jerusalem in one night, using this animal that traveled a really fast speed, and then he claimed that he went up and he met the prophets, and that he spoke with Allah subhanho wa Taala. The Qureshi belied him and he started calling the Prophet sallallahu anusandhan names. And they knew that Abu Bakar had accepted Islam. So they wanted to taunt him as well. So they went up to Abu Bakar. And they said, Have you heard what your companion has claimed? Now? Have you heard you know, the stuff that he's coming up with? And then before they even could, they could even say what he was claiming? He said one simple statement.

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

He said, If he has said it, then it must be the truth.

00:40:00--> 00:40:45

If he said it, then it must be the truth. And this shows the level of acceptance that Abu Bakar rhodiola. One had for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and hide for Islam, and this is why he was given the title acidic. Now this title of the deal is the greatest title an individual can be given after the title of prophethood. Just to give you an example, one day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was on Mount Hood, with Abu Bakar Omer and Othman and mount au has actually started to tremor and started to shake the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in wanting motorheads to calm down and to stop shaking, he said, Oh, hood, calm down and tame yourself. For indeed upon you are a

00:40:45--> 00:41:21

prophet is in a be acidic, and to Shahada. So Allah subhanho wa Taala, His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he called out himself as a prophet. Then he distinguished Abu Bakar as a title that is even higher than that of a martyr. And then he said that there are two murders upon you as well, and they are Omar, and Othman. And within the heights, Allah, you will learn about them later today. So he was called us to do due to how easily he accepted the message of Islam. And due to how easily he was upset, accepting of everything of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and what he came with

00:41:22--> 00:42:06

another virtue of Abu Bakar was the degree of his trustworthiness or honestly, when it came to doing business. And this is something very important to understand. Muslims generally have this conception, that is not a good thing to be wealthy, that you know, if you have money, if you have wealth, if you dress nicely, this is not a good thing. But if you were to look at the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you would see three out of the 10 individuals that were promised paradise were indeed wealthy and rich individuals. But what distinguishes those three individuals from the wealthy and rich people of today is that today, the money is in the hearts of

00:42:06--> 00:42:45

the individuals and not in the hands, meaning that their hearts are filled with greed. But in the past, the money was in the hands and not in the heart, that they had money, they were given get in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they would not want to hoard it. And this was seen during the death of Abu Bakar adiala. One, when he became the Khalifa of the Muslims, he had access to all of the wealth, and he could have claimed any stipend that he wanted. But when Abu Bakr radiallahu passed away, he wanted to see what would be left in his inheritance. And only two things were left that would be given from his inheritance. One was a camel that was used for watering, and another

00:42:45--> 00:43:20

one was a slave that would take care of his children. Those were the only two things left from the inheritance of aboubaker. So all the words that he had, he always gave it out to the Muslims and Allah subhanho wa Taala continues to give him more. And you'll see that the reason behind this was due to his honesty, back then, when you did business with someone you were unable to control, whether they were going to be honest or treacherous with you. There was no concept of police that if they cheat you, you know, they'll imprison the other individual, but rather you were taking a great risk doing business with someone. And people actually prefer doing business with Abu Bakar because

00:43:20--> 00:43:34

they felt safe and they felt content. And they knew that they would not be cheated when they did business with Abu Bakar rhodiola Hwan. and due to that honesty, Allah subhanho wa Taala continued to bless his wealth, Time after time after time, up until his death.

00:43:35--> 00:44:17

His third virtue was when you give Dawa to an individual the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the guide and other person to Islam is better than that of red camels. Now this red camel, I guess you could equate it to the nicest car that you can think of, you know, for the longest time, you know, when you think about nice cars, you always thinking about, you know, having a Ferrari or a Lamborghini of something of that nature. But some heinola you know, a couple of years back, I was in the city of Jeddah and for those of you who have been there, it is a city that has a lot of wealth. And I had come out of a restaurant, and all of a sudden this like really, really nice car came up.

00:44:17--> 00:44:29

And I was like, you know, what car is this? And it was the first time in my life that I'd seen a Bentley. Now for those of you who know what a Bentley is, you know, Mashallah, if there's like a car from Jenna, you know, this is the car.

00:44:31--> 00:44:59

Like, you know, it has like, you know, individuals have this aura of like, luxury and you can tell like, this is a person who has a lot of money, like this car has that very presence, that you know, you could tell that, you know, this is like a rich man's car, it just like shouts out luxury. And I was like supine a lot. So like this example departments on the level, I do see them as giving is that to guide another person to Islam is to better than have like any Bentley or Ferrari or even combine them together the car that you would come out with, it's even better than that.

00:45:00--> 00:45:43

And you'll see that I will walk around the law one. Not only was his lineage blessed, but even the people that he gave power to were blessed as well. Out of the 10 individuals or 10 companions that were specifically promised paradise. Seven of them accepted Islam at the hands of Abu Bakar seven of them accepted Islam at the hands of Abu Bakar. And keep in mind that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that whoever guides an individual to a good deed than Allah subhanho wa Taala will give the the reward of that good deed to the one who guided as well as to the one who did the deed without depleting from his reward. So Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he gave Dawa, to

00:45:43--> 00:46:20

Abu Bakar Abu Bakar gave Dawa to those seven individuals and all the good deeds that they did our goal going into the scales of Abu Bakar and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And when I think about this upon Allah, you know, you don't really choose who you give power to when you have an opportunity. You go and give Dawa to that individual. But if you are sincere, and you're a good individual yourself, Allah subhanho wa Taala puts bollock and that power and will make those individuals integrate individuals. So they become that investment for you that when you show up on your mobile camera, and you're thinking and pondering and wondering, you know, where did these

00:46:20--> 00:46:56

mountains of good deeds come from? You know, I didn't do all any of these deeds, where are they coming from? And it was all the fact about the dollar that you gave to other individuals, they did good deeds, and on normal kiama you're showing up with their good deeds without actually having done them. And this just goes on to show you the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala that you can earn rewards without actually doing them. All you have to do is give out a good word guide and other Muslim to something good guide him to leave off something bad, and the reward is yours for the taking. The sad scenario is that a lot of us are heedless of that very concept. When we get that opportunity to

00:46:56--> 00:47:10

guide someone to do something good. We don't take that opportunity. And when they get that opportunity to prevent them from doing something bad. We don't take that opportunity either. Brothers and sisters if you do not want to have regret on Yom Okayama hastin towards giving power to people

00:47:12--> 00:47:51

in terms of his knowledge, by consensus Abubakar, the Allahu taala, who was the most knowledgeable Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is why he was chosen as the next Khalifa. And you will see that there are two incidents and a Muslims life that he will have literally an infinite amount of questions about when you study the chapter of Salah, you will see that question after question after question will arise in your mind. And at this time, this is when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam chose Abu Bakar to lead the prayer because he was the most knowledgeable. And the second incident where a Muslim will have the most amount of questions is when

00:47:51--> 00:48:25

they go for Hajj. All of a sudden you start thinking of hypothetical scenarios. You start thinking what if this happens, what if that happens, and you want to call someone up? And the funny thing is when you go for Hajj and you're trying to get a photo or call someone up is like everyone that you call on your cell phone, their numbers are busy and you can't even get in touch with anyone. So that's why you're like stuck a lot of the time. Totally different scenario. But this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when the first delegation of Hajj left in the ninth year after the major, it was led by Abu Bakar because he was the most knowledgeable of the companions and he

00:48:25--> 00:49:05

will be able to handle all of their questions. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam showed the amount of knowledge that aboubaker had by choosing him for those particular situations. And this is why you see that I will book the law one was in fact, the closest Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, due to the amount of knowledge that he had. And this brings us into our next quality of aboubaker, which are the qualities of leadership before an individual becomes a leader, he has to become a good follower. And in order to do that three criteria needs to be met. Number one, you listen and you obey to your leader. You listen and obey your leader and Abu Bakr

00:49:05--> 00:49:50

radi Allahu anhu did this to the best of his ability. Number two, prior to an event, you advise to the best of your ability. And Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu gave the best advice that he could possibly give before any events that took place. And the third criteria of a good follower is that after an event takes place, you give positive and constructive criticism. And Abu Bakr radi Allahu taala who did this. Now what raise his status even more was his love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and when an individual has love for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah subhanho wa Taala puts love in the hearts of the people for that individual. And this is why after the

00:49:50--> 00:49:59

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the companions loved aboubaker the Allahu anhu, almost as much as they love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, just due to the amount of love

00:50:00--> 00:50:36

He had for the Prophet. And this was seen in the way he dealt with other Muslims. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam works during the days and the nights so that the Muslims could rest. He strived really hard, and gave him his worth whatever he could, and aboubaker would do the same. So the Muslims wouldn't have to give as much. And he strived hard, like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so the Muslims could take it easy. So in following that example, and having true love of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the Muslims had the exact same amount of love for aboubaker. And this brings us to a very interesting point. Everyone fought for the love of the Prophet sallallahu

00:50:36--> 00:51:11

wasallam. When it comes to men, you know, love isn't a topic that he discussed very easily. But when it came to the love of the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, everyone wanted a bit and a piece of it. So I'm gonna open the last one day he goes up to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you can imagine how embarrassing This is for a man. He goes off to another man, and he says, Yara Salalah, who is the most beloved to you? Who do you love the most? And I'm gonna ask, he's just come back from a great mission and a great task. And he thinks because he's completed this great mission and tasks successfully, then he's gonna say, Jamar, it's you that I love the most. This is the

00:51:11--> 00:51:47

answer that he's hoping for. So he asked, the poster sent me out of Silla who was the most beloved to you. And if I was in the La Jolla center without surprise, he says, I shout out the love line. So the number says, No, no, not not out of the woman, yada. So while I'm talking about out of the men, so he's thinking, Okay, now he's gonna mention me, then if I was still a lot goes on to mention her father abakada, the law and then he's like, okay, call us in this noble status, maybe I'll be second. So he says he had a son in law, then who? Then he found solace in dimensions online. And you can see his heart's like, starting to sink right now. But he's like, let me give it one more chance,

00:51:47--> 00:52:17

you know, maybe I'll be third. And then he says, Then who yada sola, and then he mentioned off the line. And then I'm at the start of that class, you know, I don't want to embarrass myself anymore. Let me just end it there. But you know, the lesson that we learn from this is the amount of love that the prophets of Allah Hanuman had for Abu Bakar, that he loved his wife the most, and the individual he loved most after that was her father. There was that close bond, that close relationship that existed between the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and Abu Bakar.

00:52:21--> 00:52:37

And, you know, this actually, as my time is coming to an end, this this actually leads us to the death of Abu Bakar della Han obviously, there, you know, many other benefits and lessons that we can derive, but I just want to give a little bit of time to his death. So I'm gonna skip over some of the other virtues

00:52:38--> 00:52:46

when it came to the death of Abu Bakar rhodiola when he was Khalif of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for two and a half years for two and a half years.

00:52:47--> 00:53:00

So he was born two and a half years after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he died two and a half years after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The exact date that is mentioned is the 22nd of jumada. Akira.

00:53:02--> 00:53:23

He died on that day. And, you know, when it comes to the death of the Father, Son and the death of the companions, it's quite difficult to talk about it. You know, as a man, we don't like to show our emotions in public. And you know, you try to with hold as much as you can. And I asked for a lot of happiness.

00:53:24--> 00:54:04

But the death of Abu Bakar how it actually started before 15 days before his death, he had made wholesale and was going out to the masjid at the time of fudger. And it was quite cool to that today. And Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu actually got a quote. And for the next 15 days, I Chateau de la Honda. She says that I will book her for 15 days had had a fever prior to his death. And that was what actually caused the death of aboubaker de la Hwan. And something that's always pivotal to notice is that these luminaries of Islam, these great people of Islam, what were their last words? What was their farewell advice? What were their last conversations? And you know, just like how

00:54:04--> 00:54:12

Chateau de la Juana was there when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away? She was there when her father abubaker or the Allahu anhu passed away as well.

00:54:13--> 00:54:18

And Isola della Juana, you know, she's there trying to console her father.

00:54:19--> 00:54:30

And, you know, try to make the most of a bad situation. She asked her father, you know, is there any last request that you want fulfilled? Is there anything that can be done?

00:54:31--> 00:54:59

And aboubaker says, Yes, yes, I shouted. yelahanka you know, how did you bury the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? No, he asked her, when did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam die? And she said he died on a Monday. And it was Monday, that very day, so I will bacala the Allahu anhu he made throughout that time. And he said, Oh Allah, please let me die on the same day that the prophets of Allah wa neuseeland passed away. The second request that he had made from I shall have the law

00:55:00--> 00:55:16

He asked her Oh Ayesha, how did you bury the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she said that we buried the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in three white garments without any turban. So Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu. At that time, he was already wearing a white garment.

00:55:18--> 00:56:02

And he tells Ayesha that Oh, Ayesha, you know, on my garment is a stain, wash that stain off of my garment, and burry me in this very shroud with two other garments with it. When the Muslims found out about this, they said, Oh, aboubaker the Muslims now have wealth. Why do you not wear more luxurious clothes as you're about to be buried? And at this time, he said, you know, the ones who are alive are more deserving of wearing these luxurious clothes. So Bocca della Han who was buried in the very clothes that he was dying in, wanting to follow and emulating way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he told her Ayesha, that between you and me, I lived my life with

00:56:02--> 00:56:17

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I would like to die with him as well. And bury me next to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so that place was specified just for him. Now when it came to the last words of abubaker,

00:56:19--> 00:56:59

keeping in mind that he was an individual who was promised paradise from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, an individual whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had said that if you were to weigh his Eman against the man of the whole world, the former would outweigh the letter. His last words, passing away from this world, we're making the Atlas of high notes on the very words from pseudo use of where Allah subhanho wa Taala quotes Yusuf Ali Salaam is saying, to have any Muslim men will happily beside the hint that Oh Allah let me die as a Muslim and reunite me with the righteous. And when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away and we're going to talk

00:56:59--> 00:57:35

about this later on in Sharla, his daughter was to be united with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And one other bucket of the Allahu anhu passed away his two hours, Oh Allah, please let me die as a Muslim, you know, being unsure that he would pass away in Islam or not. He didn't want to be too overconfident, you want to make dua to Allah subhanaw taala even as his last words that oh love, let me die as a Muslim, and putting me in and put me in the company of the righteous meaning put me in the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, just as he had been his company in this world, and you look at these words of Abubakar de la Han, and you think Subhana Allah, you know, in

00:57:35--> 00:58:15

our times, as individuals who have no virtue or no merit, compared to the companions of the law know, yet how sure we are that you know, we're going to be people of Paradise, how sure we are that you know, we will have good endings, but here you have an individual who's on his deathbed, he's known he knows he's about to die, and he's making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala Oh Allah, please let me die as a Muslim and reunite me with the righteous. Brothers and sisters. If you were to leave with no lesson from this lecture, just let it be that, that strive your whole life to be the best Muslim that you can and never be condescending towards anyone else. And because you do not know if

00:58:15--> 00:58:53

you will die as a Muslim or not. And just like how Abu Bakar did not want to be overconfident, it is your right just as well that you should not be overconfident. Always seek Allah's guidance even upon your deathbed do not think that you will go to Paradise, but always seek a lesson plan that was on his mercy and indeed you will find him merciful. And that is how Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu passed away. The great Khalif of Islam. May Allah subhanho wa Taala be pleased with him and elevate his status and bring about the likes of him again, welcome to Darwin and in hamdulillah he would have been alameen wa sallahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa

00:58:55--> 00:58:56

Salaam Alaikum wa rahmatullah
