As I will frequently say, it's good to go back and review some of the previous episodes and charlatans especially as you keep hearing the same names over and over and over again, there's a study of the secret of the profit slice on when you start from the beginning and go to the end. One of the benefits of studying the Sahaba in this fashion, especially when we're doing chronologically everyone that we've studied, are the people that are muddle the law and who would put in the front of the line the earliest people to Islam, and you keep on hearing these names over and over and over again, then inshallah tada it reinforces a connection that you may have otherwise been aware of.
Now, tonight's biography is, is one that's very special to me, when Watson was found that Muslims understanding and helping special education needs and you start to look through the biographies of the Sahaba, to find the stories about disability, this is the story that always comes up first. This is the one that we talked about, this is the go to, to try to impress upon Muslims the importance of honoring those with special needs with a special honor. And this is a person who Allah has revealed for and about, and not just one time, more than one time. And so Pamela, what I find very interesting about this person that we're talking about tonight, is that most people only know him
through one instance. But spamela he has an extensive biography alongside the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and he had a position amongst the companions that inshallah Tada, we will talk about today, and his name is Abdullah Ibn Al Maktoum, probably along China and now what's very interesting about this as we get started, is that there's actually a difference of opinion about his name. Alright, so the people of Medina, the scholars of Medina, they said his name was Abdullah, the scholars of Iraq said his name was actually on electron. So Abdullah or I'm even on Maktoum and there is also a narration that his name prior to Islam was slain. He was slain with Assad, not her
saying all the time, I'm saying, and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam changed his name to Abdullah This is also the case by the way of the famous Jewish rabbi in Medina, who became a great scholar and companion of the Prophet slicin Abdullah bin Salaam, or the Allahu anhu. I will ask you when one day we do his biography, what his name was prior to Islam, his name was also slain and the profit slice and I'm changed his name to Abdullah. So Abdullah Ibn Al Maktoum, radi Allahu Tada. And now before I start talking about anything in regards to him, all right, does he come from the lower class of Mecca, or from the higher class of Mecca?
How many of you say lower, you have to raise your hand? Alright, so now that like, I don't know, how many of you say higher?
Alright, the two people are actually right.
I'm loving the maximum is not from the lower class of Mecca. He has a disability but he's actually a person of good lineage. Good in the sense of the meccan standards of lineage right? The days of ignorance. He is actually the first cousin of none other than our motherhood. These are the Allahu taala on All right, so here's what another test for you and I might give you my laptop if you enter this properly. What was Khadija all the follow on his mom names? Just her first name.
I'll give you a clue. But I'm not giving you my laptop because you can answer. So her mom's name was also one of the names of one of her daughters
not saying up.
Fatima. All right, Khadija Allah and His mother was Fatima bint Zara. Okay, so Fatima bint Zara EDA bint Tice is the sister of the father of Abdullah Al Maktoum. So she is the paternal aunt of Abdullah Al Maktoum. Abdullah is the son of dice even Zaida dice Benza. So his actual name is Abdullah been placed in the EDA and I'll talk about why he is named after his mother or he's referred to by as mothers that so his name is Abdullah. Even face of anxiety The face is the brother of the mother of Khadija rhodiola Hosanna and her name was foul Thema bint Zach, and the mother of Abdullah even face even Zeid is a woman by the name of Attica bint Abdullah Al masumi. Yeah, she's
from the tribe of Banu Muslims. So Attica bint Abdullah from the tribe of Bengal magazine, who is also from the tribe of Benjamin
Come on, somebody make me really happy. Let's come up a few times
Abuja great okay. So Abuja This is the tribe of Abuja, which again, was a key competing tribe with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam stryver, bento Hashem and probably the main under underlying reasons
Or definitely the main underlying reason for jahaz insistence that we could not acknowledge the Prophet sallallahu wasallam because otherwise, this gives Benno Hashem permanent status over Ben McAdoo. So he has pretty good lineage, right? I mean, both sides of his family are kurachi they're from a high place in place.
But at the same time, he has this disability, which he's famous for, which is blindness. And there's something really interesting to be said about this, that
that you know, that the biographer say that he's the only Companion of the Prophet slice, um, that we know that was actually born blind. Okay, so he was born without vision. It was very common for them. And you read about many of the Sahaba who lost their vision later on in life, very common to read about, I mean, everyone from the love and bustle the allot of time to and from that other great scholars, and you'll read that by the time that the Sahaba became elderly, they lost their vision, but he's actually the only companion that we know of that was born without vision. And this is why his mother is nicknamed Ohm Maktoum. Maktoum comes from Katrin which is concealed. So she is the
mother of him. Al Maktoum, the one who could not see that his vision was concealed. He was unable to see the world around them. Apparently how these things play out in life, you have no idea how these names are going to unveil themselves later on in life. So he's technically referred to he was Al Maktoum. Okay, he's not able to see the world around him. So his mother was who they they set it as an expression of sympathy for her. She is um, Maktoum. She's the mother of the blind child. Okay, so I'm the law. It's not that he and that's why you don't find that he was you know, he wasn't amongst those that was a press like Bilal and so hey, Ben Amar and mokdad and come back. right he's he
escapes that level of torture, because though our vision of him tends to be one who belong to that lower class. In that sense, he wasn't right. So he's not someone who's going to be persecuted in Mecca that we know of, in fact, we know of no persecution of him, it could have been sympathy towards him, or it could have been that his status protected him or a combination of the two. Okay, so he is Abdullah bin Maktoum or the Allahu taala. And who, and because he is the first cousin of Khadija, while the Allahu taala. On her, he was already familiar with the character of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, before the Prophet slicin began his call. And so as soon as he heard about the
call, he said, A slumped.
I believe. I believe in the religion of this noble man, he witnessed his character, he to heat the idea of monotheism resonated with him. So I'm the love No Maktoum or the law of Thailand, who is actually considered one of the earliest conference of Islam. And the way that you know someone is very early on in Islam is when they say that they became Muslim even before Donovan autumn opened up for the earliest conference. So his connection to Khadija will the law and have perhaps allowed him to know that the prophets my son was calling to Islam, early on and so on the love No McDonald or the law of China and embraced Islam early on, did not need much convincing and accepts the messenger
sallallahu wasallam. With all that being said, the only story we know about him in Mecca is the one that he's most famous for. Okay, which is the story of Abba, the story of Abba. So let's dissect the story a bit, inshallah, then we'll talk about the rich biography of him after episode after the story took place, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
was trying to get the attention of the nobles of coal, right? That is not a mission or that is not a priority. That is to be dismissed. The prophets lie some figures, if I can get some of these people to become as to become Muslim, then that is going to have an immediate impact on both the ability of the early Muslims to practice their religion freely in society as well as other people converting because when powerful people convert than those that look to them, either out of a sense of tribal obligation, or because they have they hold a certain position in society, they will also follow the proof is in our model, the Allah tada and when Hamza of the Allahu anhu, who embraced this not only
three days apart and change the course of Islamic history, right? So the prophets license is trying to speak to these people and he does not shut the door on them. And so finally, they tell the Prophet sallallahu wasallam look, you want us to listen to you will listen to you. Come meet us at this place. So the Prophet slicin goes to meet with the elders of the leaders of Quraysh and I will name them for a moment, okay, wrote about it in Libya, and his brother shaybah roseburn, the father of what the Allahu taala and who we talked
About the position of Earth button society Karatbars is you know, there's a famous incident of him. The leaders of police eventually trying to send him to reason with the profit slice them and stop him from calling and saying we'll give you everything that Mecca has to offer for you to stop this call. So it was in this gathering, it was brother shaybah is in this gathering may have been Hello, who of course is most famous for being the one who possessed and tortured persecuted Bilawal the Allahu taala. And as he embraced Islam, so you have earthborn shaybah omiya. Abuja is giving the profit seemingly giving the profit slice I'm an ear. Alright, add on to all of that the person who
mock the revelation itself, and what he then bolita, the father of Hadith or the law of Toronto and what he did in Madeira, Allah refers to him in the Quran. Okay, there any woman fell up to a hater. Last cantata threatens him with punishments in the Quran, because he basically mocked the Quran and said, I know I can tell these stories of the past and I can buy my way out of hell, if there's a hell anyway. That's the arrogance of anybody. So these are the men that are sitting there and saying, go ahead and address us. We're gonna we're gonna give you a chance to give us this message of yours. golden opportunity, right? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sits with them. And as
he sits with them, Abdullah bin Maktoum or the allow talent who is looked down in society, not again because of his tribal status, but because of his disability. And he wasn't someone that really you know, participated in the workplace or anything like that. So he comes to the profit slice alum running.
Okay. Yes, sir. All right. He's coming to the profit slice. Um, he's looking for him anywhere he can find him. Now, there's something that's very important to mention here. Also, last night, some had made himself so accessible to Abdullah and oh my god, a lot of time, I know that that was the nature of their relationship. I'm the love No matter what would come out would look for him, he would find him put his hands on him and the Prophet slicin would talk to him for as long as he wanted to talk to him. So there's a pretext to this incident that should not be lost about the character of the Prophet, slice Allah, whatever you need, ask and the Prophet slice on would answer him with whatever
he wants it. He has no idea who else is around the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, Allah Sula, sigh, some is in the middle of this conversation, feeling like he's finally garnering the attention of these people who hated Him and who persecuted him for surrounding himself with the lowly of whom one is coming, and rushing to the profit slice on. On top of that he's raising his voice. And he's saying Yeah, Muhammad Ali Nina. Anima cola. Yeah, Mohammed alumnium annemiek. Allah. Yeah, Muhammad Ali, Manoj McCullough. So he says it loudly. O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, teach me from what Allah has taught you. Teach me from what Allah has taught you teach me from what Allah has
taught you. And he's looking for the prophets lie some and when you find he says, Bring me close to you, Mohammed, sit me close to you at any bring me close to you. So I can listen to you. Let's talk right now. Because that's how the Prophet slice on was with him. He has no idea what is happening. And by the way, the prohibition came later on just this is just very interesting because it comes in the books of Tafseer to call the Prophet slice and by his name and form of NIDA, to call him Dr. Mohammed to call out to him and say, yeah, Mohammed, you can of course call him Mohammed Salah honey wasallam, but not to refer to him call out to Him as a last pantai says, Let's head over to the
baina conquer diabolical battle don't don't make it that you call upon the messenger sites on the way that you call upon one another. So this is a prohibition that comes later on right now. Yeah, Mohamed, teach me from what Allah taught you. Only the hypocrites would use it after that, that form of addressing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So when he does that, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
does not tell him go away.
He doesn't tell him I'm busy. He doesn't push him.
He simply Abba. Abba means literally By the way, he moved his two eyebrows close to each other. So Lola honey who has a lump in a means of like being frustrated like not now.
Right. I Besa and with Abdullah Al Maktoum had known that the Prophet slice on did that had the revelation not come? No, he wouldn't have even known because he couldn't see him. Right, but the elders could see him. Okay, those people from Quraysh could see the Prophet slice I'm expressing the displeasure and the dismissal in his face towards the love No maximum or the allow time. And then he simply continued to talk to the Prophet sly, some turned back to them after he shouted out that way and the Prophet slicin continued to address these five men
Allah subhanho wa Taala did not implicitly say to the Prophet slice alum that something is wrong with this. Allah did not send you breed it has Salaam to the Prophet slice on outside of the capacity of Quran which happens sometimes to tell the Prophet slice on about what he should do or instruct him on what to do next. Allah reveals 16 verses for this man.
Let's think about that for a moment. He revealed 10 verses to clear the name of it subtle, the Allahu taala enhancer to nor Allah reveals 16 verses admonishing the Prophet sallallahu wasallam for that
shows you the standard that Allah holds his messengers of Allah to send them to, but this is not to make an example out of the Prophet slice on them. It's to make an example for the oma that things have changed about the way that we look at people.
That there is a paradigm shift that has to take place in our hearts and our vision towards the world around us and towards how we look at people. So it wasn't even a private revelation to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Allah subhanaw taala reveals Abba Salah tele he found and he turned away and Alana as the blind man came to him interrupting him. Well, now you'll recall Allahu Yasaka How do you know he's not coming to you so that he may be purified? Oh, yeah, that Carew for 10. Farah has vichara or he would be reminded, and the reminder would benefit benefit him remember a lot told musante Suleiman hold on he was already set up that when you speak to your own, speak to them in a
way, Lando yet exactly. Perhaps he might get that cut, he might be reminded, and he might purify himself. So a lot of saying that's what you're looking for when you're speaking to a person. That's what makes a person worthy of listening to a message or being spoken to? How do you know that I'm the labial McDonald, the Allahu anhu perhaps he was coming to you, so that he may be reminded and so that he may be purified. Mmm and istana. As for that person, Minister Estefan has not even a sense of rudeness and arrogance, because right now, the leaders of Makkah, we're not showing the profit slice and I'm rudeness they actually were making an appear to him like fine, we'll consider what you
have to say. But it stuck in that means they feel independent of what you have. They don't really need what you have to say we'll consider it we may or may not need it. Whereas alumno macdon. Why is he acting with a sense of urgency? Is it because he's annoying? Is it because he wants to annoy the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? No, it's because he wants to get to agenda. So whatever it is, we don't we actually smile through all of this. We don't know what he was gonna ask the prophets lie Selim, actually, we don't know because it's irrelevant to the conversation. But he was coming to the profit slice and with that sense of urgency, because he's worried about his hero. So these people is
stuck. Now they, you know, maybe we'll think about it. We'll see if it has anything to benefit us to enter the hotel Asada and you're giving them your undivided attention. You're giving them your attention. Woman and aka Elia zeca, even though you would not be to blame if they were not to be purified. What Amanda? Okay, yes, and ask for that person who came to you with eagerness? Wha hoo, I Yasha one of the best things that this habit took pride in is when a lot praised characters inside of them. Well who are yascha and he is an all of Allah. What is the law saying that for Anima yaksha law I mean,
that those who truly have all of Allah are truly learned people, they are people of knowledge. So the fruit of knowledge is kusha is that you have all of Allah if you don't have Allah, it doesn't matter how much you memorize and how much you know, your knowledge is worthless. But kusha means that you have a true internal all of God. And Allah subhana wa tada saying, well, who are you actually this person that came to you has an all of Allah to enter and huhtala and you didn't pay any attention to him, kept in touch with Kira, but no oh prophet of Allah. This revelation is a reminder, feminine sha Allah cara, so whoever wants to be reminded, let them be reminded. fee Soho
finnemore kal Juana, in written pages held in high honor, right? these sort of these, these pages are far too elevated, to be denigrated to appease these filthy people.
Who cares if they believe or they don't believe you do damage to them? Sure. But don't betray your principles to do that, what to them in the name of Dell. That's the difference. It's a noble thing that you want to call everybody to Allah, the famous person, the unknown person, the rich person, the poor person, you see some influence that could come out of that, but do not betray your essence and your principles to try to bring them. That's where you are now, altering the data itself. So Allah subhanaw taala, saying that these are words that are on elevated pages, modified
Writing mojarra they are highly esteemed and purified, be at Sephora, Kiran and Bharara but in the hands of angels who are scribes, honorable and virtuous, Allah subhana wa tada sends down 16 verses 16 out of Quran for this incident Subhana Allah, and that's By the way, one of the proofs of the prophets lie sometimes Prophethood why would the prophets lie some admonished himself for an incident that most people didn't even know about?
But Allah subhanho wa Taala was teaching the lesson and this is not humiliation to our profits on the lines on this is an honor to our Prophet sighs Allah because this is the territory of the Prophet sly some the the way that the prophets lie some is being taught and we are being taught by extension. How do you think the prophets lie some looked at the lob, Noma terminal the Allahu anhu after that incident, every time he would see him the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would stand up and the profit slice on would say to him mahabang demon, tab Nev Robbie, Mara haben Welcome to the one on whose behalf Allah admonished me. Welcome to the one on whose behalf Allah admonished me Subhana
Allah, the prophet slice on did not hold him in contempt because you got me in trouble with Allah. No, absolutely not. You must be a special person for Allah to reveal on
on your behalf like this not to have done the manner at 70 he he'll be there's so many gems that we can take from the story. I don't want to take too long because I want to get into the biography but obviously tough See, it can be in and of itself. However, one thing some handla that I find very interesting and I mentioned the names are at the shaybah omiya. I mentioned earlier movie era and Abuja okay ritva shaybah omya Abuja. All of them died in bed.
All of them
were killed in budish.
All right, retina and shaver and the very beginning of the battle in the duels Abuja and omiya. Abuja had Abdullah and Mr. Trudeau, the follow on host, you know, step on top of him and kill him, the one that he almost killed in front of the Cabo one day, and omiya was killed by binotto the Allahu taala Ando who he wants put under a stone binotto the alongside I know kills him in bed that the only one who wasn't killed in bed that was worried because it only died before the hidden anyway.
So he died in the meccan period anyway. So Subhan Allah, Allah humiliated all of those men.
And Allah subhanaw taala honored those that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was told to honor so this is the love not Maktoum or the alongside Anto So when do we actually start to get into a Sierra actually in Medina and it starts with this and barato the low tide and who says, Oh well, lumen tatoeba. Alina, the first people to come to us in Medina were two people. Two people that came to us before anyone else came to us from Mecca. One of them is Abdullah McDonald, the Allahu anhu. So he is the second person considered the second person to make kids who's the first person?
The person we're talking about next week. Most either the Nomad or the Allahu Tada. So he says, Oh woman, Padma Elena, Musab Nora Mayer, webinar, me Maktoum, the first two people the profit slice I'm sent to us from Mecca, where Mousavi been remade and Abdullah Abdullah Maktoum, the Makati Marina a matter of NASA Barbie doll while the Allahu anhu Jemaine and then came a moto vinyasa and below May Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with them all. What were they doing what were Mossad and our beloved on maximum doing in Medina before the Prophet sly Sam had made his his route and he sent the the Muslims towards their barato the Allah tada and who says what Cana yo Cree and in us they were
teaching us the forum. These two men were teaching the people the forum.
While we were waiting for the prophets license to come upon us these were the two men that were around the Prophet slicin when he received revelation in Mecca, they were going around and they were teaching the Muslim households in Medina the answer of the law of maximum law the law of Thailand who is the second person who made the his law which we're going to be talking about inshallah tada tomorrow as well. And of course, this is the month where the hedgehog is revived. So he is the second person the second Muslim to go to Medina, after most of all the a lot of time and be commissioned with teaching the people, the Quran. The Muslims make the heads, they go to Medina. And
now as the preparations have better start to take place of the loving on maximum rhodiola hotel and who is experiencing his first moment of being left out.
He wants to partake in the battle. He wants to strive alongside the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in bedded and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not put him in that position. So he's worried about his situation in Makkah, everyone
was kind of on the run. And everyone was equally honored but on has already been revealed for him early on in Mecca and eivissa he knows the status with the loss of Hannah Montana I mean, that's as high as it gets there was a bola have the lowest. And then there's ibeesoft with the one that the first person about whom Allah reveals his book and in praise of his of the lapel mic tomorrow, the alongside I don't, of course, go back to the sleet in Salt Lake. So he knows the stats, but better is happening. And he can't participate in better and it made him so sad. So sad. You know, when someone has Akasha of Allah, when they have all of Allah, they're not seeking out excuses to not
perform their obligations to Allah. They're trying to convince themselves that they can do things that they actually don't have to do because they want to please Allah that bad. Ramadan comes and you can't fast it's not you know, your health does not allow you to fast and you want to still fast, you're not obligated to do certain things you want to still do it because of your level of Allah subhanaw taala that's the Kashi of Allah subhanaw taala so Abdullah no Maktoum missed out on the battles with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he made this
he would say Allah and
Allah reveal my excuse. I will not reveal my excuse. He already knows that Allah revealed for and for him once before. So Allah reveal an excuse for me, he wants to hear himself represented in the Quran. Because he's a very unique situation in this regard, not being able to go out and strive with the Prophet slicin them though he was from the earliest Muslim so they didn't know Sabbath all the a lot of time and he tells the story.
He says, I was with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when the way he used to come to him when the revelation used to come to him, xid being one of the scribes of the Prophet slicin in Medina.
And he said that the body of the Prophet slice alum would become so weighty, when revelation would come upon him that it could crush a mountain, and indeed the revelation when it came to the heart of the Prophet slice Allah, it literally if he was on the camel, it made the knees of the camel buckle, because lo and zelner had the Quran Allah jevelin Laura Ito Hashimoto, Saudi and kasha Tila had the Quran revealed to a mountain it would have flattened it out of what out of the hush you have a lot of that all of Allah subhanaw taala so is a totally alone who said one time my thigh was under the leg of the prophet SAW someone revelation came to him and I could not feel my thigh anymore. I
thought my leg was going to be amputated. Because when the revelation came to the Prophet slice on him, I couldn't feel my leg under his leg anymore. sallallahu wasallam so this is an incident where he says that I was with the Prophet, slice alum and the revelation came upon him sallallahu wasallam and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam we knew when he was receiving revelation, he said to me to bring forth a shoulder meaning of an animal to write on, right, they were obviously containing the written revelation on what was around them at that time. So he said, I brought it forth, and Allah revealed to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Yes, that will carry Dune I mean, me Nina well Mujahid unifi
sobre la not equal are those who sit at home from the believers and those who strive in the way of Allah subhana wa Tada. They are not equal. How do you think that made up the love No macdonnell the a lot of time and hillfield made them feel worse, right? Wait a minute, so I'm left out again. So he he heard the prophets lie Some say that. And he said yeah, Rasul Allah, he said, O Messenger of Allah fomat, Moroni for any logical and body robot sub jasola. What do you command me to do them because I can't see. I can't see what am I supposed to do? So panela is a little below and said I noticed that and this was different this you know, the revelation came upon the profit slice I'm
shortly thereafter, Allah Stein is up and it is Salaam to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam again.
And the Prophet slicin was overtaken by revelation again.
Then when the Prophet slicin regained after that revelation, the ability to convey at that point, the idea continued until later Oh, Baba. Certainly, sir, except for those who have a disability
except for those who have a disability. So some Pamela, this part of the verse later
was revealed Allah responding to the drop of the love No maximum. This could have been explained through filk right understanding the sin that explains the Quran, just like many other things in the Quran, the verse is then explained and broken down by the prophet slice I'm explaining it, but Allah honored him with an again. So another revelation comes down for him. And even though it's a few words, those few words were so beloved to him.
rhodiola hota and,
and you know, and something that he could hold on to that Allah revealed in accordance with mind or
an excuse and said I am not considered amongst those who are left behind in any way whatsoever. So this is the first man that we see these two revelations come in regards to now what was the status and Medina
Who is the most famous other than of the Prophet, slice alum,
spill out all the law and he is the more than of the Prophet slice and Bella is the color of the Prophet slice.
The other color of the Prophet slice on was on the love No matter
now what does that look like in functioning in society right in the society, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to send below the Allahu taala and out to give the advan for kiama lay. If you've ever been in Mecca and Medina, Amara Hajj, you get confused when you hear that event for clear malaria. You rushed to the masjid and you're like, why is fudges not happening? And then they do another event and you're like, this is weird. It might have happened. So if you've been following our Hajj, may Allah subhanaw taala grant us the opportunity alumna I mean, that is the advance for Korean. So the prophets lie some would tell binotto the law I don't want to go out and to call the
event and that would wake the people up sometime before fudger the prophets of Allah it was said and done said for kulu washed Robbo had you at dinner, ignominy Macedon. So eat and drink meaning if you're planning to fast eat and drink until you hear the amount of Abdullah Al Maktoum or the Allahu taala I know that is offended. Okay.
The wisdom of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Why couldn't Bilal just do both events? Or the Alon?
What is the function in that society? When the first man that gives the event and the most prominent man for the event is someone who was in the most denigrated place in the days of janelia in the days of ignorance without all the a lot of talent for his color for his status for his you know, lack of a tribe everything that would be associated with loneliness in the days of ignorance due to their ignorance, not from Allah subhanaw taala associated with the law I don't look how Allah has elevated him and now the Prophet slice alum the second person who is honored is the only companion who we know that was born blind of the love nor McDonald the Allah tada and
now here's the thing
how did I do love No Maktoum know that it was legit.
Please do not say you had an iPhone.
Alright, he did not have another one o'clock.
Isn't there something that people saw on the skies? I don't know if you know this, but you actually see it in the sky. Alright, there's like a thing where a lot of time is not based on an app. Okay. ephedrine was based on, you know, the actual budget, right? The break that you would see in the sky, and so
on lactone rhodiola, and who could not even see it? So doesn't that complicate things further? Why would the prophets lie some choose him to give the other hand for offensive he can't see.
Not only that, how would it take place sudden we've got the law or the law of Thailand who says can only Maktoum Romulan law, you know, the Hata eukanuba who are smart or smart
that even Maktoum could not see anything. So he would not call the budget until someone would go to him and say us back to us but it's out it's out now you can call the budget.
Why all this complication? Because Allah subhana wa tada wanted to honor that man, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was setting up a certain way within the community as well. We extract so many rulings and so many lessons just from this alone. I'm going to go through some of them by the way, the fact that the Sahabi was defined their entire chapters like a like a disclaimer, right? Because it's a hobby technically someone who saw the profit slice them and believed in him I'm loving on McDonald's alone, never technically saw the profit slice. I'm imagine what that did to him. spamela he never got to see him in this life. He knew him he knew of him, he loved him, he
adored him. He was everything but he didn't see him all the time. And so you'll find that the books when they're explaining what does the hobby is, there's like that paragraph at the bottom but by the way, you know, for some people, this wasn't actually visibly seeing the profit slice um, it was being in his presence, knowing he was there and affirming that he was there. sallallahu wasallam. So even McDonald's alone, could not see the sun. But Allah Subhana Allah Allah chose him to be the president for a budget and even McDonald's Allah tada and who could not see the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, but Allah subhanho wa Taala raised him in the presence of the messenger sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam, there was another thing where the prophet SAW the lion, some of them and honestly a lot of data and Hawkeye stuff, love Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam ignominy Maktoum, Yama, NASA Whoa, whoa, that the profit slice and I'm appointed him to leave the salon. And that was something that wasn't looked at as something that could happen because they thought a person with a disability
cannot lead the prayer the profit slice lm appointed on loving McDonald a lot of times I know to lead the people on prayer and he was blind. This goes on, by the way,
to another honor, that when the prophets lie some would leave Medina he would put on the loving little Maktoum in charge of the Alon and not just symbolically, it was actually understood that Abdullah Al Maktoum was in charge of Medina when the Prophet slicin would exit from Medina and also the Allahu anhu witnessed himself and stuff of that stuff lover. If not only Macedon and then Medina, Marathi he put a ban on Macedon for the Toronto in charge of Medina and so the Alon who remembered twice in the books of sia mentioned 13 times that the Prophet slice on made it clear that as he was going to the outskirts of Medina, the love and electone or the Allahu taala and this blind
man that you would not look at prior to Islam is in charge while I'm gone.
So I didn't have the profit slice of them leads the prayer as the profit slice I'm appoints him and the profit slice and puts him in a position of leadership. If you look in the position in the chapters of the books of Hadeeth, by the way, that filaria you will, the chapter of a blind man can lead can be in a position of leadership, right so they established it always with the rulings in regards to the law no matter what the law hotel and some of the other famous incidents By the way, or the incidence in regards to hijab in the presence of the loved one back to them about the amount of time I'm home on cinema while the Allahu anhu says that one time
the Prophet slice alum came and made more novel The law and I was present and she was present and even on Maktoum came, and they didn't put on their hijab and
the prophets lie Selim told them to do so. And they said to the Prophet slicin, Yama sola Isn't he blind and the Prophet sly seldom said are you both blind as well? Are you both unable to see as well FM Fm yovani and tumor Are you both unable to see as well they said knows what the profit slice of them said then just you know you know observe the the veil in the presence of an mK tumoral the allowed Thailand so here's the thing is this something that is established that if a person is blind that a person still that you stuff to observe a job around him?
Yes or no?
Okay, so here's where it gets interesting. Another incident Fatima bins place or the Ola hotel Anna and this is just a Sierra tidbit, but it has some tips to it as well. 14, in case what the allow was the first cousin of Maktoum and the Prophet slicin observed her or told her to observe her in divorce with him at that time, and the Prophet slice alum told her that you can remove your hijab in front of him because he cannot see so Buddha will withdraw the allowance on and he comments on this he says that heavily as virgin abhi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a fossa and uttara illa arity daddy Fatima been placed in the maximum but caught an abuse Allah Allah Allah ceremony fathima era Ted the
maximum that you can you know, the word says this was specific to the wives of the Prophet sly Salaam, because as you can see, he told Fatima bins base that she could pass her in his presence and she did not have to observe the hijab. However, you know,
of course, you need to know that a person truly cannot see. Alright, so there's something peculiar to the the wives of the Prophet SAW I saw them in this regard. However, the ruling
does not apply to everyone according to Buddha Buddha and according to many of the scholars in that regard. Now I'm going to fast forward in sha Allah to Allah to two incidents, one of them being his death. And this first incident is very interesting. It's narrated by Hackman and they have tea. That mushroom.
Mushroom kept an edge there was a student about a Chateau de la.
Masako de la Sol and her being one of the greatest students of it showed the law and who collected her knowledge, passed it on to the next generation. Mr. Zuckerberg. He says that one day I came to, he saw the law of time to anna and i found her serving this this blind man who was wrapped up and she was serving him with rich which is like citrus fruit. She was cutting it up for him with her own hands. And she was preparing us sell honey as well. And she was taking it to him and she was honoring him.
And I was shocked. I had no idea who he was. So I said to her Yeah, I'm gonna want money. Oh, our mother Oh mother of the believers. Who is this man for you to be cutting fruits for him and serving him honey and honoring him in this way like this. This isn't what we're used to seeing who is this man?
So I showed you a lot of time and her response and she says, this is even on Macedon. Allah the art of Allah hee hee novia who sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the one upon who's
behalf Allah admonished His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then she narrated to him. To me my stroke was narrating she narrated to me the whole story of Ibis what's Allah? And then she said, and this is how the family of the Prophet slice on him has been ordered to treat him since then.
So Subhanallah this legacy lives on with the whole family of the profit slice and they knew that when I'm loving all Mike tomorrow, the law no comes around. We have to treat him in a certain way because that's how Allah subhanaw taala honored him.
So as Pamela What about the followers of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah countless amongst his family, his brothers, his sisters, that we honor this man will be allowed to at home, as he shall not be allowed to and he was still honoring him decades after the Prophet sly son passed away in accordance with the order of the Prophet sallallahu aarnio son that this is a man who Allah honored with revelation, we should also honor him in accordance with that revelation, we come to his death or the Allahu tada at home. And it's an interesting story, because everything that he was prohibited from coming to be in those last moments in the year 636, which coincides with 14 years
after his long you have the most decisive battle between the Muslims and the most powerful empire in the world, which was the Persian Empire. So the most decisive battle takes place between the Muslims and the Persian Empire under ameerul momineen Ahmed, I'm gonna hop out of the a lot of time. And this was called the Battle of Goddess sia. Now in the Battle of God, the sia the preparations for the Battle of God the sia, which is again against an arrogant, large, powerful, ruthless Empire, or Amaro the Allahu anhu heard about the size of that army. And it was over 100,000 people.
Can you imagine an army in the seventh century that large, over 100,000 people, the Persian Empire had prepared an army of over 100,000 people to basically say, let's do away with this nuisance of the Muslims once and for all, Let's wipe them off the face of the planet. When all the Alonzo got word of that effort to amass over 100,000 soldiers, there was a draft of sorts around the entire Muslim ummah. Okay, so the calls to try to amass an army that could put up a fight against this army and policy. So people are coming from around the Muslim ummah. And you have in Medina, an effort to put forth people that otherwise you know, at that point is voluntary right to go out and battle.
This is this is voluntary, but now there is an encouragement how do we get as many people as possible to fight this massive battle? underside of costs are the Allahu taala
as a model, the Allahu taala and who was gathering the people
of the labial McDonnell the law and what comes to him to hop on the line? He says, Yeah, I'm gonna want me let me go.
But you can't write you have, you know, somehow this man did not participate in better content for good reason. Well, the a lot of time, I know he didn't get to participate in those battles. Now you want to participate in this battle where, you know, it's an existential threats for the Muslim Ummah, at least outside of the area of Medina, what do you mean? He said, Yeah, I mean, not many Let me go. Why am I gonna go He said, I'll read Quran to the people. I'll pray with the people pm because, by the way, Subhanallah the nights before the battle, what did the Muslims used to do that they used to get a good night's sleep now they'd spend the nights and family
they'd spend the nights in prayer before battle. So I'll go there. I mean, I was the first person next to Musab to be sent to Medina to teach them the Quran, right? So I'll go with them. I'll teach them the Quran. I'll pray with them. But let me go with them. Yeah, I mean, so I'm on the line who lets him go. Now, when they get to cardassia
what it ends up being is that you have about 30,000 Muslims against this over 100,000 Persians.
And I'm the love not Mac terminal the allotted time for says, I want to fight with you all. I want to be in the battle. And they said to him, what are you going to do? And he said, last time, Tatiana egomaniac Mariah, don't you need someone to hold the banner?
Someone to be the flag bearer. When you go out and battle, right, there's always someone that's carrying the flag.
So they said yes, but but, you know, you're not gonna be able to defend yourself. He said, you know, wear my armor, and I'll hold the flag. So so panela eventually, they allowed him to do that in this decisive battle. Now, the Battle of god this year raged for three days. It was a battle where the Persians employed elephants, that literally they sent out to stomp people to death on the other side. I mean, this was a violent
of the love not maximum or the amount of time he takes the flag. He is the flag bearer of the Muslims, a man who never fought before. But Allah subhanaw taala is granting him you know what we need to reach out on Sadako nihalani. He had a desire inside of him, he had a desire to be of the greatest of those Muslims and someone who sacrificed everything that happened before. So they said Subhanallah that the narrations mentioned that he even you know, in order to make sure he wouldn't fall back because of the thrust of just the Winds of War. I mean, he couldn't see anything. So he, they dressed him in armor, and he just held the flag. He put his feet literally planted his feet
under the ground, so that he couldn't move
because he didn't want to move.
And so when the battle would rage, he's literally got his feet kind of buried into the ground in a way that he's firmly planted, and that he wouldn't fall.
So he goes, and he stands in the middle of this battle. panela, holding the flag, covered in armor, with his feet, an old Sahabi one of the first people to become Muslim, and no one could tell him No. And on that day, this is the third day of cada sia
out of the 30,000 Muslims, about 8500 of them were killed.
He talked about stitch had like the amount of people that were martyred, over 8000 of the 30,000 were killed, over 40,000 Persians were killed.
And so Subhana Allah in that day, they, as they went to count all of the Sahaba that had passed away multiple companions, multiple tambourine passed away in this battle. And this was of course, the battle by the way that opens the next step for the eventual fall of the Persian Empire. This was at one spot the seal is done that was it so Allah granted them victory. They found out the love not maximum or the law of Thailand, and Subhana Allah, he was laying down and he had the flag clutch to us just
about the law of town on how beautiful Subhanallah clutching the flag of Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, the man who used to go out and we used to call the man, even though he couldn't see further the profit side, some new and a lot knew that he had something in his heart that could see because the eyes are not blind. It is the hearts that are blind and Allah subhanaw taala honored him with being one upon whom and for whom Quran came down and will at the end of the Prophet slice of them, the governor of Medina in the absence of the Prophet slice Allah, the One who is appointed to lead prayer, the one who is honored by the most honored family of the Prophet sly sentiment here, the man
who is honored as a Shaheed as a martyr as well in this battle of God the sia although the Allah tala and homie Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with him have mercy upon him unless parents are allow us to be gathered with the profit slice of them with the companions with his family with the profits with the righteous ones or hassle not without a karateka and what a blessing companionship that is Allah I mean, we'll settle down with the amount of you know, Mohammed while he was talking to the marine charlatan next week, we're going to talk about none other than Musab either homemade or the alongside annual which is one of the most touching stories that we find in the CEO of the Sahaba. So
inshallah Tada. I will see you then. And for now, we have a few minutes before I show so actually go and take questions and
