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

I would ask me to administrate laundry personnel to handle human Hamdulillah you know, but I mean when I would want it you learn a lot I mean when I asked you about to Mateen Allahu Sunni Muslim Baraka, Dakota so you can Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam to Seaman kathira. So hamdulillah now but I mean tonight we actually are going to get started with what should be a really pleasant Inshallah, and enlightening three sessions. So, I started off by looking at the story of our beloved Mattawa huddled the Allahu taala. And who and my initial thought was that I would do a short halacha about him at the end of this, you know, season. But then I started

00:00:38--> 00:00:43

digging, digging and digging, and I thought he deserves his own class tonight, but in the night, Tyler.

00:00:44--> 00:01:09

And then I thought that it would be nice for us to spend the next three weeks actually looking at this genre of Sahaba that all happened to be from the unsought and all happens to have a similar entry point into the life of the prophet, slice Allah. And these are the three poets of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and usually, when I say the poet of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who's the first person that comes to the mind of most Muslims,

00:01:10--> 00:01:54

Hassan even further through the lawn, right? Hassan Musavat is the most notable poet of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we're going to talk about him in sha Allah to Allah. But even Salim Rahim, Allah to Allah says can assure Allah rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Earth, that the poets of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were three people of the love not Allah Azza wa sallam no sabots were currently nomadic. These are the three poets of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Abdullah Abdullah Hassan bin Talbot and caribou Malik May Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with them all. Capital Malik, of course is the companion whose story is most famous for his

00:01:54--> 00:02:32

Toba for his repentance and we'll talk about him either next week or the week after inshallah Tada, but the next three weeks Bismillahi Tyler, we're going to spend on these three men, these three poets of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam. Now I'm loving it, Allah huddled the Allahu taala. And who is extremely important in this regard, not just because he connects to the story that we just finished with the.or, the Allahu Anhu. But because out of the three, his virtues are actually the most well established. So he actually has more virtues established on the tongue of the prophets lie Selim, then both Hassan and caribou, Malik May Allah's parents, I'd be pleased with

00:02:32--> 00:03:17

them all. And he combines multiple virtues, not just his poetry. And it's very interesting because all three of these men have vastly different personalities. And aside from their poetry, there isn't much that underlies all three of their stories. But when it comes to our beloved Mattawa, huddled, the, a lot of times I knew I chose the title, the warrior poet, for a reason, because the perception is that those that were into poetry had nothing to do with battle. And he's kind of the, you know, he's the odd man out in this regard. He's a warrior, and he's a poet, which was weird at the time. And on top of that, his poetry is actually, you know, very much so a window into the sealer that

00:03:17--> 00:03:53

he's describing. So because he has war poetry, and by the way, you know, it's, it's like a, I got to put this disclaimer out from the very beginning. His poetry is pretty aggressive, because it's war poetry. You don't sing nice poetry and battle and when you're getting your own troops riled up, and you're fighting against people that have oppressed you for two decades, your poetry is not going to be very lenient or gentle. It's not sweet poetry about the Shamal of the prophets lie. Some of them the description of the prophets lie some it's like hardcore poetry, getting the morale up of the believers as they're in the heat of the battlefield. And he is, in fact in the front line. So he's

00:03:53--> 00:04:39

not even a guy that's like sitting in the back somewhere, or singing this poetry on the sidelines. He's in the battlefield, in the front line of the battlefield, chanting out poetry very loudly and riling up the believers and keeping them going throughout these you know these very difficult moments of their lives. So his name, remember that heavy Rahim Allah to Allah introduces him, Al Amin, a serried a Shaheed, the emir, the leader, the the the person of eternal bliss, the martyr, abou Omer Al Ansari, this this person who we talk about our beloved that Allah Radi Allahu Taala and who l Bedri al Hazaragi. He is one of those who witnessed better is from the tribe of huzzah Raj,

00:04:39--> 00:05:00

and he is a share the poet of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the first poet of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so the first to become Muslim, and the one who has the most virtues narrated about him about the Allahu Taala and who So tonight is going to be a little bit different and interesting. And the next three, in fact, they're going to be a lot of poetry and

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

It's almost impossible to translate any of this poetry or at least to carry some of the beauty from it but at least introducing the man behind the poetry of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam so I'm loving Rolla, how will the Allahu Taala and who is from the tribe of huzzah Raj, his father passed away before Islam. And his mother is a woman by the name of Kemp's capture capture bins, market capture bins market, and his sister is a woman by the name of Amara. And the reason why they're both important is because they both converted to Islam. So both his mother and his sister accepted Islam alongside him and this is the only sibling that we know for him is his sister Amina

00:05:41--> 00:05:47

and his mother capsa accepted Islam and she married Al Bashir even sand

00:05:48--> 00:06:36

after the death of the father of loving that Allah so she has when she when she married but she had been sad or she had been sad then they also have the famous and Norman had been Bashir was a very famous Companion of the Prophet slice I even saw her Behati you'll often see the name and Norman had been Bashir so this is now the relative of of this. I'm sorry, I messed up his sister I'm married, but she'd have been said, Sister I'm not married, but she'd have been sad. Therefore a Norman had been but she is his maternal nephew. Okay, so sister Amara, married but she'd have been sad had a normal been but she had his mother Topshop, married place, and then had fabrics in place.

00:06:37--> 00:07:19

So if you're taking notes, just remember this for the future fabrics have been place while the Allahu Tada and her famous companion is there for his brother through his mother, his maternal brother. So sabot Ben face shares the same mother CAPTCHA as the mother of both abdomen face and Abdullah and there are three different fathers and Norman had been Bashir is his maternal nephew through his sister Amara, both men become very instrumental in the seat of the Prophet sly Salam, and in Hadith literature, and preserve much of the legacy that we have our beloved and a lot, much of his poetry is narrated through them. And his best friend, of course, his brother for life was who

00:07:19--> 00:07:21

we talked about him last week,

00:07:22--> 00:08:03

a Buddha that will the law of Toronto, so I will go to that and him grew up together, they were childhood friends, they were best friends. They were closer than blood brothers. And he narrates from the Prophets lie some, as we said, various Hadith as well as from Bilawal the Allahu taala. And who, and we'll talk about some of those that narrated from him. Right off the bat, he didn't have any children of loved that Allah handled the Allahu Taala and who never had any children that we know of. So what's his story? Prior to Islam, he's one of the few people from the unsought, who is highly literate, well read, very eloquent. And his poetry was so famous that the Prophet Seisen was

00:08:03--> 00:08:49

already aware of his poetry even though he never met him. So I'm the love Minowa authored much poetry in the days of ignorance, it's known as a shared of jargony, the poetry of the days of ignorance. And his poetry was being quoted around the prophets lie some all the time. And one of the proofs that the arena use that the scholars used to say that Islamic, that poetry or art that isn't Islamic, but doesn't undermine Islam is permissible, is that the Prophet slice and I'm used to love the poetry within the law. Okay, the fact that his poetry, from the days of ignorance, was still quoted by the prophets lie Selim after Islam, so long as there was nothing obscene about it is the

00:08:49--> 00:09:32

main proof that the scholars used to say that poetry or art that is not necessarily undermining of anything Islamic is permissible, and especially if it has a good meaning. And of course, the prophets lies I'm only like that which has a profound and good meaning. So a shout out to Jack Lee. He was famous for his poetry in the days of ignorance, and he would become famous for his poetry in Islam. Now, when he heard about the Prophet, slice alum, he's he's known to be a Quickman. So his description is that he immediately grasped something and then he could tell you all about it, he could, he could give you all of the estimations of a currency if you put it in front of him. One of

00:09:32--> 00:09:59

the things that he used to do in Janelia, you know, and this was a way that you tested your your wits was you you put in front of him a handful of something, and he tells you how much it weighs without carrying it. So he's able to estimate things in the marketplace. He's able to look at someone and tell you where they're from, because he's so intelligent, and he knows the lineage of people. He knows the traits of people which country you're probably from. He could tell you who your siblings were, if he looks at you, so he's one of those people who has a

00:10:00--> 00:10:15

The strong wits that people used to praise all the time and the prophets lie some heard about him. So what's beautiful is that when he sees the Prophet sly someone for the first time, there is a curiosity about curiosity about what he's going to say about the Prophet slice.

00:10:16--> 00:10:59

Right? You know, this is not a guy that gets taken advantage of, and he's not a man who's easily impressed. And we wonder what he's gonna say when he sees the prophets lie Selim. And he is the person who when he sees the prophets lie Selim, he says low lamb tech on fee to MOBA, you know, can it's buddy how to who to beat Bill Huberty says first beautiful poem about the prophets lie Selim. I'm not sure if 50s uncovered it in Somalia or not. lowland tekun fee to MOBA Yuna. Had there not been clear signs that he has meaning the divine revelation, the Quran, the miracles that Allah had given to him cannot be the How to who to mica will hovering you looked at him and his essence

00:10:59--> 00:11:38

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the way he carried himself his appearance is the way he answered questions right away, but he had to is a very hard word to translate, by the way, right? But his quickness, his appearance, his essence, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Tomika Bill Huberty will tell you that he is indeed a recipient of divine revelation. So I looked at him. I knew he's a prophet, right, similar to Abdullah salaam, and realize this is how ALLAH SubhanA wa sallam makes the prophets lie salams message so clear to these people, that if you are able to loving the salam, the chief rabbi of Medina, who've been waiting for him and reading the descriptions from the Torah. And

00:11:38--> 00:11:39

you saw him You said that's him.

00:11:40--> 00:12:20

And if you were Hassan and Martha told the Allahu anhu, right, that's him. Well, we'll talk about that. And if you are Abdullah Abdullah, who looks at people and who, you know, makes judgments about people in terms of whether they're true for or not, who can kind of immediately read you and get your vibe looks at him, and just from a place of pure intelligence says, that's him. All these people are seeing the prophets lie some for the first time and going, that's him. So I'm delighted that Allah accepted Islam right away, right away. And in fact, winter Mecca, and was one of the 73 on saw that small group of 73 unsought that actually took the baby out with the profit slice and um,

00:12:20--> 00:13:02

that took the pledge with the profit slice alum in Mecca, before he even came to El Medina sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he is one of the representatives of the unsought, who took that oath of allegiance before the hijra, even happened to Medina, and then one of those who came back to Medina, and when he came back to Medina immediately began giving Dawa, before the prophets lie, some even arrived. And again, we said, the first person that he starts with is his best friend, or Buddha, or the Allahu Anhu and other that says, I'm happy for you, but I'm enjoying my, I'm enjoying my idol. You do you and I'll do me until a Buddha or the Allahu taala. And who comes home and finds

00:13:02--> 00:13:43

that I'm beloved that Allah crushed his idol, the pieces and his idol couldn't defend himself. And you remember the story of the love that Allah has sitting with the Prophets lie someone up there that is walking in? And I'm loving that Allah says, Yes, Allah, I think he's coming to get me. And the prophets lie. Some says no, no, Allah promised me a Buddha that was going to become Muslim. He's coming to become Muslim. So this is I'm the loving that Allah huddled the ALLAH and he had a strong personality. No nonsense, no nonsense whatsoever. Right? Very straightforward. No nonsense, and he's the first person. So there are many firsts here. He's the first person to challenge Abdullah and

00:13:43--> 00:13:46

obey Ben cellule. The chief of the hypocrites

00:13:47--> 00:14:01

of love No babe and soluis name has come up a few times. Now. He of course wasn't was set to become the leader of Medina. And when the prophets lie, some came it basically Feuless plans. So the first gathering the prophets lie some remembered with him

00:14:02--> 00:14:27

was this time that the prophets lie someone was writing towards a gathering of Abdullah and obey been settled and some of the people in Medina they were a mix of Muslims, hypocrites, some of the Jews of Medina, it was a mixture of people. And when the prophets lie, some came close. Remember, he insulted the Prophet slice alum and said to the prophets lie Selim that, you know, your donkey bothers me like just stay back.

00:14:28--> 00:14:31

And we're not interested in what you have to say to us.

00:14:32--> 00:14:59

Abdullah Abdullah, was the person who stood up and who said to the Prophet SAW, he said, I'm actually we're very interested in hearing what you have to say, why don't you come and address us and tell us what you have to say? And it was after that, that a scuffle broke out between the people that were sitting around I'm the love Minnewaska and I'm the love No babe and saloon and that's when the Prophet sighs I'm asked that I don't know about that or the Allah and what's what's the issue with this man? Why does it even obey even salute hate me so much? And he's

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

least of the prophets lie some that look this guy's robe, his his crown was already being made. He was ready to ascend the throne. And then you came with Islam and undercut all of his plans. So he hates you because you took his power. Right. But it was Abdullah huddled the Allah I know who was noted that as the first person to stand up to Abdullah Abdullah ibn saloon, and basically tell them to get lost. And this was the gathering in which that happened. And the prophets lie some saw that in him, because he was so trustworthy. He's also one of the first trustees of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Rasulillah Salam would send him to the various tribes in inside of Medina, right as

00:15:42--> 00:16:21

His representative. Now of course, you know, the prophets lie some himself was governing, and Medina and holding together this very fragile situation. But when he needed to send a messenger to someone on the inside, especially one of the Jewish tribes, he would send up the Lagna, Allah huddled the Allahu Taala and who as his trusty as his right hand man, and because of his intelligence, it's narrated authentically, that on the day of the conquest of labor, the prophets lie Selim would send up the loving rawa to estimate the palm trees to estimate what part would belong to the Muslims on what part would remain for the people in labor. And this is narrated authentically, that the

00:16:21--> 00:17:05

prophets lie some sent him the day that Haber was opened, and I'm loving that Allah has said to them, okay, Rocco, he had acaba qumola. Allah, Allah Samara bein and our bein accom. So he said that I basically confirmed to you that Allah Subhana Allah, Allah has made it so that the fruits, the thumbor are divided between you and us for cannabis or Allah. He saw some Yeah, but I thought, I'm loving that Allaha Well, the Allahu Taala and who say Afro Selena, who were they in a handsome Mayor code and [???], some fella come in shipped to them fairly. So I'm loving. And I would go and he would look at the palm trees. And he could immediately estimate just by looking at it what share belong to

00:17:05--> 00:17:46

the Muslims and what share belong to the people of labor, the tribe of labor, and was very fair with them in the process as well. So he was the trustee of the profit slice and on the profit slice and put his wits to good use, right of being able to estimate things and being able to, you know, to, to represent the prophets lie some accurately in some of these gatherings. He's also the one who announced the victory of better to the people of Medina. So the prophets lie some sent him ahead. From better, he witnessed better. The prophets lie some sent him ahead to Medina to make the announcement of the victory of the Muslims and he did so in his beautiful and poetic way. Now let's

00:17:46--> 00:18:27

talk about his poetry for a bit in sha Allah Tada. So, the prophets lie Selim used to quote his poetry to the extent that the scholars say we don't know of anyone else who the prophets lie so I'm counting at a method where he the profit slice, I'm used to frequently quote like that. We don't actually have narrations of the profit slice. I'm quoting the poetry of other people. But when it comes to, I'm loving that Allah about the Allahu Tada and the Sahaba asked, inshallah the Allahu Taala Anna akan rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yetta methyl OBC in Muna Sharon. We know the profit slice and I'm said that poetry is okay, so long as there's nothing that's under it. Or

00:18:27--> 00:19:07

I'm sorry that undermines Islam that comes through it. But did the prophets lie some himself used to enjoy anyone's poetry did he used to quote anyone's poetry? She said Kenny at a method we say in machinery I'm the loving and Allah. He would frequently quote of the love not Allah huddle the a lot of talent. I know he loved the words the poetry of Abdullah and that Allah or the Allahu Taala and hope, what Obama thought, Well, yeah, tikka will bury manlam to them with the that he would frequently say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. That news comes to you from places that you least expect. Okay, my name is Edward means people that you did not necessarily provide for you didn't

00:19:07--> 00:19:55

carve the way or paved the way for it. But news often comes to you from people and places that least expect so the profit slice I'm used to like his poetry, and he used to quote him around the house sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in these different settings. Now beautiful narration in this regard is about his genre of poetry. All right. So Ben serene Rahim. Allah says there's a distinction between the poetry of Hassan of cab and of Abdullah All right, so all three of them are defenders of the Prophet SAW Salem. But he said there's a distinction. He says kind of Hassan what cab? You aren't Elon, Elon Musk licking the myth the only humble worker with a yarn Well, Mathur, that has son and

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

carob. Their brilliance was that they would basically respond to the

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

A muscular keen with the same style of poetry that they would use against the Prophet slice of them. So they talk about their tribes and Hassan and carob would talk down their tribes and talk up the Prophet size on them. They talk about their days of victory and their glory days and Hassan and Kab would put down their days of glory and victory and then elevate the profit slice alum and the days of the Muslims like better and so on so forth, right? The day of the hijra, and the day of better so Caribbean Hassan would listen to them and then take their words and use it against them.

00:20:35--> 00:21:14

And that was their brilliance. Okay. He says, Well, I'm Abner. Hola. As for Abner, Lucha Kenny euro euro home Bill cosa, y en si boom, la he, even Allah, how was very straightforward. He would just he would just disgrace them with their Kufa with their disbelief and put them down for their disbelief like he didn't go through the whole tribes and that kind of stuff. For the most part, he would talk about the superiority of Eman to comfort, the superiority of belief to disbelief. So his genre of poetry, when he talked to them was to elevate the worship of Allah and to put down the worship of their idols. Okay, to talk about the honor and dignity of Islam, and to talk about the humiliation

00:21:14--> 00:21:53

of Joe Hillier, and that's the way that he used to be or the Allahu taala. And when he would respond to them. Now, it's not like these three men would would go and they would just go after them for no reason. Right? Obviously, they would respond on behalf of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And that shows you there's room for that. And even Allah had describes the first time that the Prophet slice on basically was curious about how he would respond on his behalf. So he said, I passed by the prophet, slice alum, and tell us to benei a day he sat in front of him. And the prophets lie Selim told me, Keith, it's cool to share either errata enter code. How do you author

00:21:53--> 00:22:23

poetry when you feel like authoring poetry? Like what's your process? Province? Like someone's asking him what's your process? So he says, under feedback, some code he said, I don't really have a process. I look at something and then I speak. So as I don't prepare any poetry and then come with lines of love that Allah has study something and then he attacks it. Okay, so the prophets lie Selim says in that case, for La COVID, Masha keen, respond to those haters. Show me what you've got.

00:22:24--> 00:23:08

So Noah has said says, Well, I'm going here to shake. This is like nerve racking for him. He's like, I had nothing prepared the profit slice and put me on the spot. So you're this poet who just looks at something and gets it done. So go ahead, respond to these people. Show me what you've got something that says that I looked at them. I looked at them and I said, the hubby Rooney ethna and other imita Quinton B Tarita? Oh, Dan at La Comodoro which basically means that, you know, I said to them, tell me the price of an ABA of a garment, when you were in a product or when you dominated the tribe of model. What that means is the only thing you people know in the days of ignorance is the

00:23:08--> 00:23:47

price of a job, the price of obey you people know nothing. You're ignorant human beings, the only thing that you could quote to me, from your knowledge is the price of something because all you people are into is in the trade of these different things. So he said, so I looked at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for Atia who carry hahaha and JAL to Congo as none other so I said I looked at the prophets I said when I realized the prophets I'm didn't like that very much right because I turned his column if I said you people that I turned his people into a people that were so ignorant that the only thing they used to be able to quote you was the price of something. So he

00:23:47--> 00:24:31

said, so I tried again, a call to ya CML higher in hola hola, hola, como, el el Berea, te fatherland, ma la Julio in neater for us to fecal Hydra LIFO FIRA satin Halifax, Halifax home Villa de Navarra while Elsa Elta Aniston sorta Bahama the hidden Limbrick V Haley, Amrita ma well well Nazzaro setup but Allah Houma attack I mean Hassanein test Vita Musa one nostril tele de nos zero. So he said, After that this is really, really hard to translate. But he said to you, oh, you Hashem Alhaj which is the tribe of the Prophet slice and he said, Allah has honored you over all others. I can see the hate and you I can see the good in you, and I know it. And if anyone asks them about

00:24:31--> 00:24:59

you, then they will not be able to sing your praises enough for be of great support to you. But may Allah support you firmly? So we looked at the prophets lysozyme may Allah support you as firmly as he supported Musa alayhis salam and give you victory as he gave to Musa alayhis salam and his followers, so he basically turned it into praise of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he said, so I looked at the prophets lie Selim. And I saw that his face was Mr. Epsilon. I saw that the prophets lie some was happy, and he said what IACA for the better

00:25:00--> 00:25:27

lat he said in you as well, may Allah give you firmness May Allah He. So he's like I got my poetry right the second time, first time, I went a little too far. And I ended up attacking the prophets and his people in a way that maybe was too much of an association of ignorance. And that time I was able to praise them just to the extent that I was able to praise the prophets lie Selim, properly in that situation, his most famous nasheeds I stayed in a seat for a reason, because it gets turned into the sheet

00:25:28--> 00:25:36

is a poem that the prophets lie Selim actually started to sing with the companions in the hunt up in the in the trench.

00:25:37--> 00:25:56

Now, of course, when you're in the trench, you're starving, and you're fighting off a massacre. Right. And this kind of connects the story of CINAHL, the Allahu anhu, as well, a new strategy, which was to build this conduct around Medina to build this trench around Medina. And,

00:25:57--> 00:26:16

you know, there's the time factor, are we going to be able to get this built in time? Are we going to be able to dig this up in time? And there is the failure factor, if one part of this trench gets penetrated? We're done. Because the army on the other side is that large, to where if we let them through one, one hole, we're in trouble.

00:26:17--> 00:27:01

So the prophets lie Selim sees how you know how stressed out everybody is, and the prophets lie. Some himself is, of course, starving, and he's giving the Bushra the glad tidings. As Samantha said, all the Allahu Anhu narrates the story of the light that comes out of there. And I'm beloved Noah huddle the Allah who I know has a shed has a poem that he authors and the prophets like some starts to repeat his poetry and raise his voice with it. And when you see the Prophet slice, and I'm saying then everybody starts to sing it with him. So like, imagine the scene in the Trump's Hola Hola. Hola, hola. And Dena well out of darkness. Well as for Lena, for en Zeeland, Sakina 10 Elena with a

00:27:01--> 00:27:20

beetle Akadama in LA Cana. Basically the prophets like Sam says, and this is the poem of Ebola. He quoted in Allah O Allah, were it not for you, we would never have been guided nor would we have given charity, nor would we have prayed so bestowed upon us calmness, and

00:27:21--> 00:28:07

it goes on to say, in Florida called Belva or Elena either Aurora do fit Nitin Urbina, that verily our enemies have transgressed against us. And if they seek and fitna if they seek affliction, then we will not flee then we'll hold our ground so the Prophet slice and I'm heard of and Allah has say these lines if you're any of you ever heard this machine before, by the way, never gonna see a few of you Alright, so the profit slice I'm heard of and Allah has say this and the profit slice I'm starting to repeat Allahumma Lola and Dana wallet or sub doc now when Elsa Lena for N Zeeland Sakina Turner Elena was happy to have them in cleaner in court Bebo, Elena either Orajel fitness and

00:28:07--> 00:28:42

Urbina. And Bharat who narrates the Hadith. He says the Prophet slice and M said it and then some people started to say it with him. And then the prophets lie, some raised his voice and more people started to say it until all of them were saying it as they were digging the trench. It's a beautiful sight when you think about it Subhanallah that the prophets lie. Some knew that they needed that energy and that reinforcement, and it's a Durant, right. It's not just a poem, it's a DUA and it's an affirmation like we're going to hold our ground and they're also seeking Allah's prioritize help, and they're seeking Allah's victory. And they're saying, Oh Allah, if it was not for you, we would

00:28:42--> 00:29:04

have never been guided we would have never prayed we would have never given charity, but it was because of your guidance that we found this meaning and the prophets lie Selim said so for enemies find us then they will find this firm and we will not flee bitten into heated and of course, the Muslims mashallah held their ground in in the trench and they were able to fight off the enemy. Now, of course,

00:29:05--> 00:29:28

that's one side of war poetry. The other side of war poetry is the stuff to them to the to the enemies. And this is something that happens, it's actually narrated in the body. I'm sorry, I didn't mean that. And so the hola animal says that when the prophets lie some entered Mecca during Amara tilava aamra to Kudla is the makeup of Umrah from the Treaty of her they be

00:29:29--> 00:29:59

remembered or they big they said you can't do it on camera now you can come back next time. Okay, you can't do it on camera now you can come back next time. And they thought that they were humiliating the Muslims by delaying their camera. So basically when they get in, I'm loving that Allah has just shooting them with poetry and just putting them down one by one looking at abusive yarn making eye contact with him and just talking them down and threatening them as well. As they're doing ombre now they're not with weapons.

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

But he comes in the Sahara are doing Tobia

00:30:04--> 00:30:25

and he's coming in and he's saying, Hello Daniel cofell runs OBD he ayama not rip Comala tunzi de Borbon years you will hammer and naughty, he will use he will finally Lanza, Li Li he, basically, the short translation is I'm going to separate your bodies and then I'm gonna separate you from your loved ones. And we're not afraid of you.

00:30:26--> 00:30:30

Okay, so he's just going at them with poetry and poetry and poetry.

00:30:31--> 00:31:09

And there's room for that here. This isn't like he's gone like talking to women and and children like innocent people. These are the people that ran them out. And they're trying to find some joy in subjecting the Muslims to a delayed or Amara. That's one of the HECM the wisdoms of what exposing the right shoulder and showing some strength and so often called doom in the entrance of the love. And when he does that, out of all people are on the road, the Allahu Tada and who he says, to have loved marijuana, you know, calm down to call to share your saying shared in the Haram of Allah subhanaw taala in the message of the prophet in the Messenger of Allah subhanho The haram of Allah

00:31:10--> 00:31:28

and in the presence of the prophets lie son in this situation. And it was the prophets lie some hotels a model the Allahu Tada huddle their annual Yama fella here, ASTRA ofI him may not have never, that leave him alone, because his words are harsher upon them than the arrows of the archers.

00:31:29--> 00:31:31

Like they need this, they can be humbled a bit.

00:31:33--> 00:32:08

This, by the way, is pure prophetic wisdom, Hitman, talking about finding a role for everyone in the community and not cutting them down. There are so many incidents like this where the prophets lie Saddam, he basically didn't take away the I'm gonna use the word he didn't take away the swag that some of these companions had. If you don't know what that word means please don't go find it. I don't know what it says on Urban Dictionary, whatever it is. But they had everyone had their own their own way, right their own personality like oh, boy, do Jana. I love the Allah. I mean, when we talk about him in the battlefield, he would do all these like war dances before the battle would

00:32:08--> 00:32:36

start basically showing off with a spear and like some of the companions thought that wasn't humble and the prophets lie someone told him to keep on going, do your thing. Right, this is not a time to chop him down or to tell him not to do it. So when I believe that Allah comes in with this type of poetry, it sits the occasion that we're not afraid of you and that even though we're not shooting arrows at you, we do not fear you. In this situation, you might think that you've humiliated us but you have not humiliated the Muslims.

00:32:37--> 00:32:50

Now, what makes him so impressive about the Allahu Anhu and Allah He it is it's actually a wonder when you read about him is that he's the only poet who never had a slip with the Prophet slice on him.

00:32:51--> 00:33:32

Like he never slipped his piety, his taqwa, his God consciousness, his, his, his ability in war, the way that he observes that Ibadah just pure worship is absolutely remarkable. The prophets lie some puts him in charge of Medina and some narrations, the prophets lie Selim has him by his side and every single battle will sola slice and and put him in charge of over 30 battalions 30 expeditions, I'm the loving that Allah was the main commander, while the Allahu Taala and who are leading them and chanting his poetry while he was leading them. That in and of itself, as a scholar, say puts them in a different league. He's a warrior and a poet and he doesn't have a slip, the one slip he

00:33:32--> 00:33:53

has, which is not even a real slip is what had been above the Allahu taala. And who narrates he says that one time the prophets lie, some sent out of love that Allah and a battalion on a Friday and he sent off his battalion before him, so that he could pray with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam so what did Fajr

00:33:54--> 00:34:31

and when he finished fudging with the Prophets lie Selim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he asked me said, you know, why are you here? Then I send you out. And he said to him, Allah to animal Salima Acharya rasool Allah I wanted to pray with you on Messenger of Allah then I would follow them and the Prophet slice and M said Lo and factor method or the Jamia Anna attractor, formula delta. That what the prophets I said, I'm said that if you spent the entire world in gold, you would not achieve the reward of what they achieved those people that went out early, so go with them, you know, don't send them out and then stay back and pray your reward was with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada, to

00:34:31--> 00:34:59

go out and to pray. That's the only time the prophets lie, some ever in monetarism. And it's not even a real slip. It's not a sin that he slips into. It's that he thought that it was better to stay back and pray with the profit slice. I mean, get the edge. Get the good deed of praying with the profit slice I'm in Jamara and then I'll catch up with my battalion later and the prophets lie. Some said your greater reward was leading your battalion and going out with them earlier, some of the beautiful narrations about him and you can see the you can see the

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

With that darkness, I'm making up all sorts of words in him. All right?

00:35:06--> 00:35:33

Because salon and Abu Dhabi that were distinguished for their worship, right silence and worship, silence and worship, silence and worship, this man is a pope. So silence as far as like being silent with the things happening around him. That's not it. But the most famous Aida of his most famous act of worship of his anisul. The Allahu Anhu says, Canon Muralla either lucky or wasn't mean as hobby he sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:35:34--> 00:36:15

Even Allah, if He found one of the companions of the Prophet sly Salam, he would go to them and he would say to Al, nope, minsa let's go worship Allah together for an hour. Let's go believe in Allah for an hour. What does he mean by that? Let's go walk. Let's go talk about Allah together. You know, remember Allah subhanaw taala together. Let's go worship for an hour. Let's go believe for an hour to add, look, Menza this became his famous, his famous quote, you may have heard it by the way before it's an open set. Let's go believe for an hour, you know, subhanAllah if you tell a friend, let's take a walk. Let's go to the masjid together. Let's, let's go believe for an hour, let's go

00:36:15--> 00:36:53

increase our faith for an hour. Maybe next week. You can bring them to the Holika Inshallah, you can say Titan, Mensa. Let's go believe for an hour and just blindfold and put him in the car and bring them here. Don't blindfold anyone but you can bring them to the Meza and say, Let's go believe for an hour, right, let's go worship Allah for an hour. So one time he said that to a man. And it shows you how sometimes what you mean can be misinterpreted. The man blasted him he got mad at him. He said not Mensa. You want to worship Allah for an hour you want to believe for an hour, so he goes to the Prophet sallallahu isonomy says Gardasil Hola Hola, Tara Narula yo haldwani Nanika Illa Imani

00:36:53--> 00:37:27

Sara said O Messenger of Allah. Do you see your competitive in the LA hide the only time he wants to believe in Allah as an hour out of the whole day? He understood it but Allah is saying let's believe for an hour, and then this belief for 23 hours. Or let's not remember a lot for the rest of the day. So the prophets lie Selim. To best summer. Allah His Salatu was Salam. He smiled and he responded and he said Joakim Allah and Allah Allah may Allah have mercy on even Allah in the whole your hidden bull majali seletti teta Behold, Mala Iike he loves the gatherings, about which the angels boast.

00:37:29--> 00:38:02

He loves the gatherings about which the angels boast. May Allah subhanaw taala make this one of those gatherings Allahumma I mean, he loves the Halaqaat he loves to be in these gatherings of knowledge. He loves to be in these gatherings where Allah is remembered, and he'll form them. That's what he meant. May Allah subhanaw taala have mercy on him. He loves to be in a place where the angels are boasting about the people that are in that place. May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst those people about whom the angels boast Allah Amin another time where you see his his obedience to Allah and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Another famous incident that

00:38:02--> 00:38:43

happened is that one time the prophets lie some was giving cultiva and the prophets lie. Selim was on the minbar and even that Allah was walking to the masjid. And he heard the prophets lie, some say actually sue, sit down. So even Allah has sat down outside in the heat. And he waited for the prophets lie Selim to finish for Janice and McKenna who hardly the masjid had to follow Robin Hood but he he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he waited there until the prophets lice and finished his ultimate Sibella Daddy can be sold Allahu Allahu wa salam that reached the profit science and I'm and by the way, wrong action, right? I mean, it's not literal. Sit in the shade. It's okay come

00:38:43--> 00:39:25

forward, sit in the shade, you know the meaning. But the prophets lie Selim, in correcting that action praised him. Again prophetic methodology or sola spacetime said za Kola Who hellsten Allah Tala Surya to Tijuana Antilla What are SULI he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah increase you in Hilson like in that desire to always be in obedience of Allah and the messenger like that's a beautiful quality that you have you can sit in the shade come closer sit in the shade you don't have to sit in the sun. But that idea that he had a clear Allah wealthy or was so ingrained in him obey Allah and obey the messenger that when he heard the prophets lie, some say sit down from the men but

00:39:25--> 00:39:59

outside he sat down or the Allahu Taala and hope and you find that that general just fear of Allah subhanaw taala that he had one time he became sick, had to augment it he narrated that he became sick and he lost consciousness. Tell him Nabil sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Prophet slice and I'm came to him, and he said, Allah humma incana How about our Angelou who say yes, Sara Lee. We're Illa feshie The Prophet slice and I'm said Allah Montana Hello, Angela, who Oh ALLAH if his time has come for yesterday. He

00:40:00--> 00:40:08

then make his transition smooth. Well, Illa and if not, has we then cure him? Oh ALLAH. So he woke up.

00:40:09--> 00:40:49

And he immediately said, subhanAllah, he said to his sister, who was caring for him, he said that when you were praising me, an angel came to me and said to me, and together, are you what they say you are? Are you as she says you are. And that's what the prophets lie. Some said that when someone passes away, and the people come and they start to embellish in their praises, and they say, why is the EDA? You know, what a great person what a great person the angels ask, How can I Quint? Were you were you what they say you were? So he was he was saying to her, don't do that. Don't overpraise because she was sitting next to his bed and she was saying all these poetic words about how great he

00:40:49--> 00:41:32

was. And he was he was literally that close to death that he saw what the prophets lie some said happens to a person after death of the angels testing you and saying, Are you what they say you were so Subhanallah this was an incident that happened with him, as well. We also see another narration from him whether that well the Allahu Taala and a Buddha of all people. He says Llodra a tuna ma su De La he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam de Broglie as far as he he he Yeoman Shadi will help, will help. He said that, I remember there were days where we were with the Prophets lie Selim and his companions. And it was so hot, hot in La Jolla, la yada yada who Allah ROTC he in sheet that will

00:41:32--> 00:41:53

help said it was so hot that a person would start covering themselves putting their hands on their face from how hot it was trying to protect themselves from the sun doing whatever they can, because it was so hot. And he says when I'm in a huddle and saw him when he law Rasulullah, he SallAllahu and he was no more I'm loving that Allah and the only two people that would be fasting would be the prophesy seminar, beloved Allah.

00:41:55--> 00:42:34

So that's the level that he exerted himself to Ibadah to worship that even a Buddha is saying, I remember those days, no one else would be fasting except the Prophet slice I'm and I'm loving that Allah while the Allahu Taala and home and you find the fear of Allah and it's healthy Subhan Allah to read about different personalities, now they interacted with the verses of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah in this regard. When his wife said that one day he was crying, backup Nicola, Becca, Tamara to who? He was crying and his wife started to cry as well. And he said, Malachy, why are you crying? She said, the key to the bouquet come crying because you're crying. So he says, in new culture, LM

00:42:34--> 00:42:41

to any worry do now. So that I just learned today that I'm going to be touched by the fire.

00:42:42--> 00:43:24

And she, you know, she said, What are you talking about? And he said, what you mean, come Illawarra do I heard the verse that all of you will touch the fire. And of course, Allah subhanaw taala comforted the believers. So my Unigene Medina taco right that Allah Subhana Allah would save the believers from that punishment from the difficulty but he thought it might be him. And particularly, when he heard the verse where Allah subhana, Allah says, was sure IRA and the poet's right the poets are followed by who and when they followed by those who are straight, and he started to cry. And he said Kadeem, Allahu and Neeman home, Allah knows I'm one of those poets that leads people astray.

00:43:25--> 00:43:58

And Allah subhanaw taala revealed what it Lilina am and what I'm going to study hat. So it's a show, except for those who believe and do righteous deeds, that you're not one of those poets that are blameworthy. So powerful lesson when you're reading the Quran and like someone says, Oh, that's not me. That's not me. That's not me. That's my will. Clearly ALLAH is talking about the kofod. Clearly ALLAH is talking about these poets of evil. He immediately thought, you know, what, if that's me, and he reflected, and he recited and Allah subhanaw taala comforted him in the process of the Radi Allahu Tada. And

00:43:59--> 00:44:42

as for his death, subhanAllah, he passes away on the Allahu taala, and hold in one of the most difficult battles upon the Muslims in the time of the Prophet slice on which was the Battle of Malta. So he's out of the three, the one who dies in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The prophets lie some sent 3000 Men, after the lasagna is murdered the ambassador of the Prophet slicin to them, so this is a Roman front. And when they murdered the ambassador of the prophets lie, some of the prophets lie some sent his battalion of 3000 people. The Romans assembled an army the Byzantines assembled an army of 200,000 people to meet 3000. So he talked about being

00:44:42--> 00:45:00

outnumbered. This became one of the most difficult battles in the time of the prophets like some and also loss I mentioned seeing the shahada of the martyrs on thrones of gold and Jana thrones of the hub in Paradise because

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

of what they went through. And you might remember when we spoke about this battle and some of the previous

00:45:07--> 00:45:53

companions lives. So the first person that the Prophet slicin put in charge of this group of people does anyone remember they didn't have any thought of the a lot of time on several sulla sigh some puts his eight well the Allahu Anhu in charge of this army, and they though the Allahu Anhu has killed the next in line was who? Jaffa abitata but all the longtime so Jaffa or the Allahu anha assumes the leadership and Jaffa or the amount of time the animal was killed panelised AIDS, the beloved son of the Prophet slicin martyred and then jaffle The Allahu anhu, the prophets lice and loved so much, right his cousin who he loved so much, also was martyred. The third in line was

00:45:53--> 00:46:34

Abdullah. So the order that the profit slice on gave was Zaid and then Jaffa and then I'd love that Allah which shows you the status in and of itself, right, the fourth person was caught it. So it was Zaid Jaffa, Abdullah Minowa, and then Khalid bin Walid, or the Allahu Tada, and humanitarian and when Zaid was killed, and a large group of Muslims were killed Jack follow the law and who went forward and Jaffa de la Anna was killed in a large group of Muslims. And I'm loving that Allah was chanting poetry telling them to advance and keep going and keep going and keep going. And when he was told that it was his turn to assume the leadership,

00:46:35--> 00:47:14

he felt a hesitation and Subhanallah he he chanted these words. He says, Yeah, enough's. Ella Araki, chakra Hina Jana. Oh, nafs do I see you resisting Jana? Do I see you resisting paradise? Leaf will Billa the 10s Ilana ta Iran. Oh, that took hola took Rehana, he said that I swear by Allah that you will enter into it. either voluntarily or you'll be pulled into it. Meaning I'm not letting you ruin this for me. Okay, so that Tenzin and you will enter into it thought Yeah, 10 Oh, that took Rehana

00:47:16--> 00:47:26

or you will go into it forcefully in the sense that I will, I will force you to go forward in this regard. And so he took the flag and he advanced to the Allahu Taala and

00:47:27--> 00:48:05

and he too, was martyred. So he was martyred in the Battle of MATA while the Allahu Taala andasibe nomadic or the Allahu Taala and he says, I have a lie a disease that will sleep from the other hijab Pharaoh fell asleep that first day took the banner and Zaid was killed and then Jaffa took the banner and Jaffa was killed. And then I'm beloved that Allah had took the banner and he was killed and when the prophets lie Selim heard the news were in the IMA Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that he found he said the Prophet slicin was weeping. He was sitting in the masjid when he heard the news that Zaid and then Jaffa and then Abdullah Abdullah who were killed, and he was

00:48:05--> 00:48:39

weeping sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the mention of every one of their names, it was so painful for him to hear that those three men all at once so close to him. So beloved Tim slice, and um, were taken from him. And he ascended the member, while he was we think, Prophets lie, some stood on the Minbari to make the announcement while he was weeping from the depths of those three from the harlot and then finally there are the Allahu Taala and who took it and highlight all of the Allahu Taala and who was blessed with victory, and by the way, actually anisul the Allahu taala. And who says Khalid took it without being appointed meaning he took it after our beloved that Allah which

00:48:39--> 00:49:20

suggests that Canada was not even appointed as the fourth person that it was Zaid Jaffa, Abdullah, because of the law and who assumed leadership in the absence of no one that could do so and Allah subhanaw taala gave gave the Muslims victory on the day of the Battle of Malta. And you could actually see, I'm not sure if you have the picture of his his grave but also in Jordan, in the Battle of Malta, and inshallah Tada as they are looking for that in the night Tada if they can put it up, they can put it up if not, then inshallah you can obviously find it. You know, when you look at the people of Malta, this is this is it here actually, so this is the grave of the lovin that a

00:49:20--> 00:49:21

lot will be a lot of time

00:49:23--> 00:49:23

in Jordan,

00:49:25--> 00:49:59

after the Battle of Malta, and this man who is beloved to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam May Allah subhanaw taala accept his shahada May Allah azza wa jal accept his martyrdom and his poetry in his service to the messenger salAllahu alayhi wa salam, Allah Amin of his legacy Subhan Allah are of his legacy is that as we said, of the poets of the prophets lie Selim, he has the most virtues that are narrated about him and he's the first poet of the prophets lie Selim. There is also no incident as we said of him upsetting the prophets lie. Some are transgressing, so he never slips in a way that the prophets lie son becomes displeased with him.

00:50:00--> 00:50:39

He's also the source of the Islam of Buddha or the Allah Han. So that's why it's powerful when you connect it to the person before because everything we said about the Buddha or the Allah and his legacy of the Quran and element becoming one of the most knowledgeable companions of the Prophet slice until the point that the Companions, some of them believed he was the most knowledgeable alive. All of that is the sadaqa. jariya is the charity of Abdullah, who invited him to Islam and insisted on bringing him to Islam until about the RDA for the Allahu Taala and who embraced Islam. And one of the most powerful narrations that I've ever read. Some of you may remember it from for

00:50:39--> 00:50:58

those left behind when we talked about being connected to the dead, is how we reacted to the death of Evan Rolla and how he used to remember it. He used to say it all the Allahu Tada Allahumma inni Ooka an atom Allah and Allah, OBE and Abdullah, Allah,

00:50:59--> 00:51:09

Oh Allah, I seek refuge in You from doing a deed that would cause me to be humiliated in front of our beloved that Allah. What does he mean by that?

00:51:10--> 00:51:28

Because the news of the living is transferred to the deceased, someone passes away, and the righteous souls gather. And they ask one another what happened to those we left behind what happened to those that we left behind what happened to those that we left behind? A Buddha only knew life with our beloved Allah.

00:51:29--> 00:52:06

And so after Ebola hudl, the Allahu Anhu was martyred, I will do that on the Allahu Anhu used to seek refuge in Allah. And basically he's asking Allah for firmness that I don't, I don't slip after the death of the one who brought me to Islam. You know, he was the source of me coming to Islam, and these to worship Allah together and these to push each other together to be in the service of the messenger. So I suddenly say Allah hum and the arrow will become an admin or eminent officer be he and the other loving and Ally seek refuge in You from doing an action that will cause me to be humiliated in front of my beloved friend of the love and ALLAH and he said, Not Not a day goes by

00:52:06--> 00:52:30

that I don't think about him, as Pamela he would remember him every single day, his righteousness, his striving, and he would credit him with giving him that gift of Islam. And of course, I would do that all the Allah and who would live for decades after his beloved friend of the love that Allah while the Allahu Taala and home, you always find these interesting stories. Subhanallah last week, we had the love story of a Buddha and a mother that

00:52:31--> 00:53:15

asked for the wife of a beloved, beloved that Allah his wife remarried after him and thought it or the Allah Tala and who narrates that the man who married the widow of our beloved that Allah He told her that the main thing I want to know from you is Leeteuk be rainy, and sunny Abdullahi Beatty, like this man that you used to be married to your previous husband's a legend. I want to know what he used to do. Tell me about his life. Interesting, right? So he's the second husband. He's like, I want to know everything he used to do. So what was he like at home? What did he used to do at home? What was his worship? Like? What was everybody like? So Subhanallah her answer was very interesting.

00:53:16--> 00:53:46

See, she said, The only thing that I remember about him that was just so different. In terms of his worship, you can either Arada and Yak Rajam and Beatty salah or Karitane well, either duckula Salah raka attain La Jolla del Danika EBITDA. It's really interesting. She said something beautiful about him is that he never entered the house, except that he went and pray to that guys. And he never left the house except that he prayed to that guys, and she said he never changed that habit.

00:53:47--> 00:53:57

You know, somehow you think about these amazing human beings, these amazing companions. I remember when the prophets lie Selim told Bilawal the Allahu Anhu like I heard your footsteps in general

00:53:58--> 00:54:01

what are you doing OB la What was the last answer

00:54:02--> 00:54:39

to that guys? When I make will do Yatta salah I pray to records. That's it. That's the special deed that I'm thinking of. And so maybe you're hearing this is like I can never become a poet or maybe some of you decided to become poets after this or go into the arts so you can defend the profit slice of them which isn't a bad thing right to defend Islam and to channel your talents and shout Lazzara into media and things that are inshallah wholesome and, and in accordance with the Sunnah of the Prophet slicin and bring about some goodness for Assam. Maybe that's the passion that you find over the next three weeks. But like this, this widow is sitting with her new husband. He's like,

00:54:39--> 00:54:59

what did he used to do? What did he used to do? What did he used to do to doctors, when he'd come home? The first thing he did was he'd go to the corner he prayed to the doctors, and when he wanted to leave the house, he would pray to Christ. So the increase of a no after the increase of voluntary prayers, is one of the most beautiful ways that we found the courtroom the means by which these people would come closer

00:55:00--> 00:55:35

To Allah subhanaw taala and become praised by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to be pleased with him. We have with from him a hadith through an amount of in Bashir so sometimes companions that died that early you don't find any narrations from them because they obviously died before they could narrate to others. But because his nephew was and there might have been receivable the allowance out and we have narrations from an amount of an Bashir and from Anna cinematical, the Allahu Taala and as well as Abu Huraira or the Allahu Taala and hope may Allah be pleased with him and be pleased with all of the companions of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa

00:55:35--> 00:55:47
