Ministry thanasi Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen whatever one Allah Allah what I mean when Aktiva to Luma tepin Allahu wa Salatu was Salam abiotic and rdquo silica Mohammed and sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, while he was talking to your salam to see him and cathedra some hamdulillah Rahman Welcome back to the first after a short break, and sha Allah to Allah, we are going to continue. We're on episode 81. Now we're going to continue with the lives of the unsought of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and really building out this place of Medina. And the way that we start to see everyone come forth to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and have their
own unique story with him. The person that we're talking about today is someone that you may have visited in Turkey. And of course, it's because there's an entire district named after him. And I know that American Muslim is going to Turkey has become kind of the thing. I feel like Valley ranches in Turkey, half the time. And this is of course, you know, a place where you have many connections to Islamic history, but in a very interesting way, a connection to someone who is so uniquely tied to them, to Medina to Rasulullah Salallahu, Salam to the city of the Prophet slice, I mean, that's about a YouTube, I'm sorry about the Allahu Taala animal, the host of the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And it's very interesting because even if you don't know much about any of the companions, and especially this companion, you will associate one thing with him and that is that he hosted the Prophet slice and when he came to El Medina, and his entire identity surrounds this hosting the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in his own home, when the prophets lie, some came to Medina. And of course, you know, with Ebola you before we talk about any of his qualities, I want you to think about all of the amazing people we've spoken about thus far from the unsought from those people in Medina and the love that they had for the Prophet slice. And then you have bounnam
and Hajra em, they love those that migrated to them, the sacrifices that they made, the hospitality that they made, how special do you have to be for Allah to choose you amongst that group of people? Right, like if there was nothing else that you would say about him for Allah to choose you out of all of the unsavoury to be the one to host the Prophet slice and I'm himself in your home for months, that says everything that you really need to know about this person and what quality he must have had with Allah subhanaw taala and what Allah saw in his heart and as we'll see, of course, it is divinely placed. The prophets lie some did not choose the house of Allah you will the Allah on
him because it was the nicest house he didn't choose it because of any type of reasoning, but it was rather Allah subhanaw taala that chose about uberall The Allahu Anhu to be the host of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So first of all, what's his name?
Does anybody know his name?
And he guess, and you can't google.
Abdullah, that's a good guest, but it's wrong. But it's a very good guest though. You'll get it right many times when you say that.
Believe it or not, believe it or not, his name is actually harlot. Okay, so the name of Abba Ebro the Allahu Taala and who is Khalid bin Zaid Khalid Ibn Zayd. Of course, we know that many people used to have a cornea a cornea of course means the father of so and so or the mother of so and so. Even when they were children. You know that one day they would have a child and they'd be named after that child so he was named nicknamed Ebola you very early on which was a common practice of the Arabs, the father of a tube, even though he didn't have any YouTube, but his name is actually Khalid Ibn Zayd ibn Kool Aid, or the Allahu Taala and his father is Zaid ibn KoolAid. His mother is
Zara bin Salman face. Now important to understand, you know, when we're talking about the initial introduction of what you have is actually his lineage. And he's from the same tribe as ohm surname or the Allah Tada and Han haram Radi Allahu Anhu. We talked about the onset of the prophets of Allah Han Islam and they were the onset of the Prophet slice and I'm because they're from the maternal side of the prophets of Allah honey was salam and that is Benina jar Benina. Jar. So there's this one tribe in Medina, Benin a jar that counts as the maternal side of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because the mother of Abdon Multilib, the mother of the grandfather of the prophets lie
Selim. Okay, the great grandmother of the prophets lie Selim, was actually from this tribe of Benjamin ajar, Selena, the daughter of Hashem. The mother of Abdulmutallab was from this tribal Bedouin and Josh so the great grandmother of the prophets lie Selim is from Benin and Jordan Medina. Therefore, the prophets lie some always had an affinity towards this tribe, and the prophets lie Selim. You know, when he visits Medina, this is going to be the tribe that hosts him the
He's going to be considered his family, his relatives when he goes there. And subhanAllah it's interesting because the very area that Ebola you Radi Allahu anhu, being a prominent person from Benin ajar lived in is actually the area that I didn't look at it. The grandfather of the prophets lie some grew up in Ogden Multilib grew up in that area, not realizing that one day, his greatest progeny would come back and settled that area under much different circumstances. So the area of Medina because of course, it was divided by tribes, the area of and Medina where the grave of the prophets lie Selim is today where the imam prays where there's so much traffic is actually the same
area that his grandfather would grow up in. Because it was the section of Bedouin a job. Now, what do we know about about you before Islam, almost nothing. In fact, the books are silent on his biography before Islam, it starts with his entrance into Islam. So he's not someone who's involved in the politics of yesterday, from what we could see. He's not someone that is, you know, while he's prominent, while he has some wealth, he is known for some charity. He's not someone who occupies any particular position in society beyond simply being recognized as as one who was generous and good to his people, and who had his home in the land of banana jar. He embraces Islam amongst that group of
converts, that took the pledge of Acaba, the second pledge of Africa 70, or so converts that went to the Prophet sly son in Mecca, and took br to the Aqaba the full pledge with the Prophet salallahu salam to receive him in El Medina. So he's one of the earliest in that sense from Adam Medina and that he actually goes out to the Prophet slice Allah in Mecca and pledges allegiance to the Prophet slice alum during the time of Hajj, and is amongst those who then sets the stage in Medina to receive the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, when the prophets lie some, of course, takes the pledge from that group of people in Mecca, and then begins to make his journey to Medina, the
prophets lie some of course, stops in Tibet for some time. And the prophets lie some builds this Masjid of Koba, on the outskirts of Medina. And then after a few weeks, he makes his way to the actual city. And when he makes his way to the actual city, and there's this recognition that this is going to be the place that he's going to settle. And whatever home the profit slice I'm chooses now you know what area he chooses is generally going to be where you can expect him to stay sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Obviously, there's a great deal of prominence that's associated with hosting the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, if you're a tribal head, you're thinking political
leverage. You're thinking, let me you know, get this from now. Right? Let me take him in. Let me establish some sort of a bond with the profit slice I'm from now. And that way I'll have an edge and whatever political dispute would come I mean, if that's how you're thinking, then that's where your mind is going to take you. Right? How do I get in with the profit slice? And I'm so that my tribe has the upper hand, should we devolve back into that type of thinking and that type of culture amongst ourselves? And so of course, our beloved No babe in saloon who hates the Prophet slice LM who's the chief of the hypocrites, and some of the hypocrites might think to themselves well, even
though we hate him, and we're trying to undermine him, let's see if we can get in with him. But the onslaught of don't have that attitude. The unsought have the attitude of, you know, wanting to simply serve the profit slice and I'm wanting to be by his side wanting to host him wanting to show him hospitality. And so they're all surrounding the camel of the Prophet slice of them as he's coming into an Medina and they're asking the prophets lie some come this way, come this way, come this way. And we all know the famous you know story that comes to the Sierra. The prophets lie Selim says, Leave the camel there will have more. Let the camel Corsa Take me wherever it will take me.
And it is commanded by Allah subhanho wa Taala to go where it will go. Meaning the camel will sit, where it sits, and that's where I will stay. So crosswalk goes and, you know, makes its rounds and you can imagine the anticipation. The Prophet, slice alum, lets loose the reins. And it kind of ends up Subhanallah in this area, have been on a job where his grandfather grew up, where his maternal relatives are from and pauses for a bit, walks, turns back around to confirm that this is the spot that it wants to be and it sits right in front of the house of a boy tube.
About Yuval, the Allahu taala. And who is ecstatic, right? The message of the prophets lie some is not built yet it's going to be built next to whatever home he settles, right? But the fact that it stays right in front of his home, gives him an incredible sense of joy. So he and his wife are overjoyed. They say Marhaba and Rasulullah. Welcome to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he's with the Prophet slice on his with his wife, who's his wife, that's with him.
Soda, or the Allahu taala? Anna? So the Radi Allahu Allah has with the prophets, why Selim come into this home, we get to host you. And what makes it convenient is that they have a two story home. Yes, they had two story homes back then too, as possible
to have a two story home. So they've got a two story home. So the prophets lie Selim and his wife can take one story and about YouTube and his wife can take one story. And that settles that right, it makes it convenient for the profit slice of them to do what he has to do to receive his guests. And oh, boy, you have been on my YouTube can take a quarter of the house, and there'll be fine. Now, at this point,
where should the prophets lie, some sleep, surely sleep upstairs or downstairs.
So from just the logistical perspective, the idea that he's going to be receiving all of these guests, right in the profit slice, Sam is going to have to conduct the affairs as the new leader of the city, it makes more sense for him to be downstairs, even though the nicer part is upstairs, you know, the living quarter where, you know, typically the family would reside would be upstairs. You know. So in general, when you look at the way homes were constructed back then, and a two story home, though it exists is not common. You have the common area, you know where people enter, even if you look at the way the majority of the profits lie somewhere, just an area where people talk and
receive guests, and then you go behind a curtain and that becomes you know, the place where you sleep. So the equivalent of that is upstairs. Now for the prophets lie some it makes more sense logistically to receive guests downstairs to deal with people downstairs about Yuval the low tide and who though, is nervous about the idea of being on top of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam. This is the amount of reverence and love that they have for the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, both Abba human OMA, you were thinking, how are we going to sleep upstairs? And the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is under us. Okay? And, you know,
of course, you don't want to make any noise. You don't want to step wrong. You don't want to do anything. And by the way, I know in Texas, the master bedroom is downstairs, right? We, you know, we don't really understand these concepts much when you're thinking about it. You know, obviously, the ceilings are not that high. It just feels strange for us to be on top. And the prophets lie some to be on the bottom floor. Somebody's up to the hotel, and he actually recounts the story himself. He talks about the first night where the prophets lie, some of his family are downstairs and he and his wife are upstairs. And he says, MC fell karate Rasulillah he's on Allah Islam, he says, said to my
wife, are we going to walk on top of the head of the prophets lie Selim? So they actually slept next to the wall instead of in the center of the room in a very uncomfortable way. And the prophets lysozyme notices the discomfort I mean, they obviously are sleep deprived in the morning. They're you know, they're coming and serving food to the prophets lie Selim and his family and the prophets lie Selim is wondering why they did that. And about you know, the Allahu Allah says Allah says Allah How about you take upstairs? We'll take downstairs right it's nicer anyway. You know, why don't you go upstairs you and your family and we'll take the downstairs and the prophets lie some says when at
aka about you take it easy. Oh boy, you like don't think that you're bothering me or that you're doing something inappropriate by being on top. It's completely fine. And he says a Sifu arpha The Prophets lie some says the bottom floor makes more sense anyway, logistically speaking it makes more sense. It's okay you know sleep in the middle of the room upstairs. It's not haram it's not inappropriate. You know, you don't have to worry about lightning striking you and you don't have to worry about any type of sin coming upon you or you bothering me to sleep where you're supposed to sleep and don't worry about it or what you couldn't do it. So you have been oh my god they continue
to stay away from the middle of the upstairs. And then one night about Yuval the Allah Tada and who says
for come to fill Orpha rica fill her fatty not
He said that you know, we were in the room and then some water spilled in the room upstairs okay? So he says for come to an hour on my YouTube be Qatif Atlanta net attempt battle map said that we you know, me and my wife on my Youtube, we both panicked that the water spilled because obviously back then the water spills it's gonna seep through the roof, right so, you know, oh my god, we were afraid of sleeping on top of the prophets lie. So now we're worried about water falling on the prophets lie Selim in the middle of the room. And he said, we had one, you know, blanket, we basically turned it into a towel and we started to try to get everything out of the out of the floor
to make sure that none of it seeps through. So we're sitting there, you know, trying to get all of the water out and worried that some of that might have spilled on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the next morning, he says finanzielle to either Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa salam, WA and our Mushfiq he said, I came down to the Prophet sly Solomon. I mean, they're panicking. They're scared and the prophets lie some can see the stress and the panic. He says, Yeah, rasool Allah Lacey and Betty and Hakuna Philpott O Messenger of Allah, it is not appropriate for me to be above you. So why don't you move upstairs and we'll take care of everything logistically we'll adjust but why
don't you please move upstairs it'll be easier for us. So the profit slice at that point he allowed for it to happen. So he said that we moved the metallic we moved the belongings of the prophets lie Selim upstairs well Matera who clean and the prophets lies I'm barely had any belongings like the furniture of the prophets. I seldom was so little that you're not you don't have to move the sofa and you know the the nightstand and dresser and anything that's what did the prophets lie some own? Right? The prophets like some owned very little up until his death. So it was very easy for us to move his stuff upstairs. Then he continues. He says that we used to send food to the messenger
Salallahu Salam in his family. And I'll tell you a little the Allahu Anhu said and we would look for the part basically would wait for it to come back. And we see what the prophets lie some left over. And I'd ask what part of it did the prophets lie some eat from?
So I could follow the same part that the prophets lie some eight from.
So this is just the reverence and the love that they have for the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And he said so one day I sent up fresh garlic.
And it came back and the prophets lie some didn't touch it.
So we panicked again. So the prophets lie. Some came downstairs and I said, Yara so Allah Rahman who a messenger of Allah is this garlic haram? So the prophets like some said law when I can meet a crossbow prophets I said no, but I don't like to eat raw garlic. Why did the Prophet slice I'm not like to eat raw garlic. Makes your breath stink. Okay, so the prophets I said, I'm like to have good breath, especially when it came to the masjid. And that of course is something for us as well. To eat raw garlic or raw onion and the way that they would prepare it would leave an odor the Prophet slicin preferred not to do it. So the prophets like some said, I just don't like it. It's not that
it's haram but I just don't like to eat raw garlic. So about you know, the Allahu Taala and who said for any Oklahoma taco I hate what you hate. I don't like garlic either. From this day on I don't like garlic and the prophets lie some smile that of what you'll get with the law and when he said Yeah, teeny Mon. Teak
Yeah, teeny magnetic mean, you know, they come to me are there are those who come to me that don't come to you? There are those who come to me, that don't come to you. Does anyone know what he's talking about? The angels, the mother, aka the prophets. I said, I'm saying this is not something you have to you know, observe. This is something for me. When the angels come, the prophets lie Selim does not like to have anything except for that which is pleasant. So those who come to me don't come to you, but still unbelievable. The Allahu Anhu wanted to follow exactly what the prophets like some was doing. So you imagine sort of this, this Subhanallah this arrangement, where
you have a bow tube and you posting the Prophet slice Allah, you know, taking care of him taking care of his guests every day preparing the food, sending it up, and the prophets lie, some never complained about the food. The prophets lie some was never anything but gracious. Thankful for what was being sent to him. And about a YouTube and a YouTube recognizing the miracles of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and what they would learn from the Prophets lie some of his other of his mannerisms as a guest and who the longtime who fell in love with the profit slice I'm so much more overtime right getting to see the profit slice I'm and they also witnessed one of the miracles of
If it's like something that we talked about with Amsterdam or the hola Varna and her house, which was the miracle of the Prophet slice, and I'm to take a little bit and to make it into a lot, so I bet you've been on my Youtube. One day they made dinner for the profit slice. I'm in soda. And there were two people that came to visit the Prophet SAW Selim. So about you, and are you prepared enough dinner for themselves for the profit slice? I'm his wife, and the two guests. The profit slice and I'm says to Abba up says, Why don't you go and invite 30 People from the unsought
go ask 30 people to come in from the unsought alright, don't try this at home. None of you have this miracle. All right, well, you can just be like, let's go get 30 more people, but it's about a cup but 30 people's a lot, right? Go bring 30 people into the house. Who the Allahu Anhu says whatever you say you have a soul Allah he goes and he invites 30 People 30 People come in, and they eat from that same meal that was prepared for four people.
About you broke the law and was witnessing this the prophets lie. Selim says, Now call 60 Seatoun. So he calls 60 People 60 People eat from that same dish that was prepared for four people. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, now invite 70 more people. So they're going out and they're calling people from the masjid to eat from the hands of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe salam from the small meal that was prepared by the end of it Allah subhanaw taala had fed through the profit slice I'm through that miracle 160 people so this was one of the ways in which a valuable the longer did not just witness the character of the profit slice on but also witnessed one of the
prominent miracles of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in this regard, so he gains this reputation as being who the host of the profit slice Allah, the host of the profit slice and this lasts for seven months. While the masjid is being built the prophets lie Selim living with a boy Yuval the Allah Tala in his house, and gaining that closeness between the two and actually wanted to show in sha Allah to Allah two images one of them is
if you see where the circle is,
this is this picture is about 100 years old. So this is before the
the removal of much of those historic homes in front of the message of the Prophet slice and I'm you can see how close the house of Allah Yuval, the Allahu Taala and who is to the mercy of the Prophet slice I'm of course being the green dome. And then you can go to the next image. So this is if you're going to Medina Allah subhanaw taala allow us to visit soon but in the nine to I don't have an accepted Ramadan Hajj one. I mean, if you go to Medina, that's where you would stand to literally be standing in the house of Abba Ubud on Saudi Arabia a lot of time on where that red circle is. So I mean, literally, if you pass by the grave of the Prophet slice alum from Babel, Valkyrie, and you
send Salam, and you come out, and you just take a few steps around, and you stand there, that would be the area where the prophet slicin was hosted. For all of that time were all of these blessings and all of those blessings stories took place in the house of Allah YouTube and on Saudi oil the Allahu Tada, anvil, after the prophets lie, some finishes being Masjid finishes the the construction of the masjid does the prophets lie some terrible a UB should probably find another house now? No, that's where they then started to build the federal rights. And the Herat are, of course, tiny constructions, tiny constructions that would be built next to the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam, and our Euro the Allah Tala and who then gets to become the neighbor of the prophets like Selim. So he still remains in that area. And I should mention as well by the way that the masjid is built on the land that is owned by them. Okay, so it's a walk that is now to their benefit. And endowment that's not to their benefit, and the profit slice then becomes the neighbor of a boyband on Saudi law, the law of town and who so what would he do about you bro, the Allahu Anhu and his wife every day would prepare food for the profit slice of them.
And they'd leave it out for the profit slice Allah and his family. And basically the profit slice and um, if he came, he came at the same time of the day, every time he came to take some of the food, if the profit slice did not come, then they took that food and they ate it themselves. Okay, so every day, they prepare this food for the profit slice element for his family. If he's going to eat it, he's going to eat it. If not, then they will benefit from it. And if the profit slice some ate from some of it, and they will eat from the rest, and Subhanallah you have one of the most beautiful, profound stories about the prophets lie some that takes place with this arrangement.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, whether he was at the height of power, or whether he was under persecution, didn't eat much. Never lived his life like a king. The Prophet sighs I'm always maintained a humility about him. And while he's hosting everyone else Allah Allah Harney, who was salam. Sometimes the prophets lie Selim himself, was not eating was not taking care of some of these things that were very basic. So he goes out one night, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sees aboubaker
And he sees a robocall the Allah Tala annual and set night and then he sees all model the Allahu Taala animal so Abu Bakr and Omar and the prophets lie some basically bumped into each other around the masjid at night. And the prophets lie Selim says ma Raja Kuma Minwoo, UT Kuma, ha the Hisar what is it that has brought you to out from your homes at this hour of the night? So they said Yato sort of Allah, Allah joueur we're hungry. We're hungry. I mean, think about this. The two greatest men from the Ummah meeting the prophets lie Selim the greatest man, right, the Prophet of Allah, bumping into each other at night because all three of them are hungry.
They don't have food for the night. It's probably think about how humbling that isn't what servant leadership actually looks like. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Well, no AlLadhina fcbd Rajani lady of Raja Kuma prophesize M says double bucket and Omar and I swear by the one in whose hand is my soul? What brought me out of my home is what brought both of you out of your home. So the prophets like Sam said, Google, come with me follow me.
So the prophets lie some Abu Bakr and Omar go to the house of Abba, Yuval, the Allahu Taala and
a knock on the door. On a Yo bro the Allahu Taala and her answers. And she says marhaba and the Rasulillah Welcome to the Messenger of Allah. The Prophet SAW Salem before he can say anything about you, here's their voice, he was working in the nuclear he was working in the palm trees nearby, he comes and he says mod hub and be Rasulullah will be Montmartre. Welcome to the Messenger of Allah and with to those that are with him. What is it that brings you out at this time a messenger of Allah because this isn't the time that you typically would come to the home.
And he recognizes in the prophets lie some in Abu Bakr and Omar hunger.
So Subhanallah the way that he thinks, you know, about you thinks is Al Hamdulillah, I have an opportunity. So he says Alhamdulillah na had already young archroma of the orphan money. So hamdulillah no person today is more blessed and more honored to have these guests than I am. So he goes and he starts to you know, pick from the garden, the best of his of his dates, he starts to get together his fruits, he starts to get fresh water, he starts to bring all types of things to the profit slice, I'm gonna double bucket and almost so they sit down. And then he comes forth, and he brings forth and again, to them you're thinking about different types of tomato, different types of
roto, the dry dates, the fresh dates, fresh water, and he places it in front of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then he goes and he gets two loaves of bread. This is the simplicity of the companions of the Prophet sly Salem. And he gives it to a human. You she bakes the bread. And then what you wrote the Allahu Anhu says, I'm gonna go and slaughter for you right now. Let me go sacrifice an animal. Let me cook something for you. This is an opportunity. So the prophets I was telling him, you know, not to exhaust himself and not to sacrifice a milking sheep, you know, you know, as you're as you're doing this in haste, who the law animal says, Don't worry, I've got it. he
slaughters a small goat starts to cook it and they bring forth to the Prophet salallahu Salam and Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Taala and when almost all the law and the dates the fresh water, the meat, the bread, and the Prophet SAW Salem as it's put in front of him. This is the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam. He takes the bread he prepares the meat inside of it and the Prophet slice and M is a Dad What does he say? He says yeah the YouTube bad it'd be hard to heal Qatar in a faulty myself oh boy you take this to Fatima my daughter take this to faulty model the Allahu anha in the Harlem Tosa Miss Lucha mundo a young she hasn't seen the likes of this type of food for days. So
with his own hands sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he prepares the food for fonti model the Allahu Taala and Hazara and he tells about you Would you mind taking this over to her house she of course is the neighbor as well. Right file to metal the Allahu Tada Anna is the neighbor as well and that small little area you have the food
right you have the house of WB you have the house of fancy model de la hotel Anna, with a profit sighs I'm used to visit every single night. Right? So first send the food to her.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam started to eat with his companions.
And at some point to Pamela this, this narration is really It's touching.
Because it shows you that these people somehow the Messenger of Allah sai some didn't want from this dunya too much. The Prophet slice and M says HUBZone or Lachman, what Tamron roto
like he starts to name the items of what's in front of him. Bread, meat, fresh dates, water, like these are things the prophets lie some was not used. Right, I saw the Allahu Anhu said months, months would go by nothing in the oven of the messengers, like Summon, not a fresh baked loaf of bread. Hope isn't well I'm on what Tamron what otop The Prophets I send the same all of these things. And Danny it now the prophets like some started to cry Subhanallah like this is such a narrow man from Allah subhanaw taala and he says to Abu Bakr and Omar or the Allahu Taala and Homer well let Enough cvrd Let us Luna and her the Noreen Yama, Yama.
I swear by Allah you will be asked about this blessing on the Day of Judgment. So he said so when it comes to you say Bismillah before you start, say Bismillah before you start in the name of Allah before you start and when you finish, say unhemmed Allah Allahu Akbar, Anna Elena Alhamdulillah under the hood, Shabana, Amara Lena say All praises be to Allah, who filled us and who bestowed His bounty upon us. It's Pamela this story shows you the humility of the Prophet slice. I'm not just humility with people. It's the humility of the prophets lie Selim with people that's tied with his humility with Allah subhanaw taala. And by the way, this narration is narrated with several, or in
different ways the prophets lie some being hungry at night, sometimes it says and unsightly man mentioned other people that were involved in feeding the profit slice, I'm at night and the profit slice and was humbled by the net amount that was in front of him. And of course, this is not to, to guilt us, but to make us feel grateful to give us a sense of gratitude, when you have food in front of you, and that it puts into perspective when the prophets lysozyme says that whoever wakes up at night, whoever wakes up in the morning, and has a roof over their head, and has food for the day and has their health. Then it says if there it says if they're kings, you live like a king you live like
a queen says if you have the whole world, if you woke up this morning, and you had a roof over your head and you had your health and you had food for the day, it's as if you possess the entire world. That's the humility of the messenger so the Learning Center that he's imparting upon us the praise the gratitude, and the prophets lie some stubble bucket in the middle the Allahu Anhu i By the way, you're going to be asked about this name, this blessing, you're going to be asked about it. So thank Allah subhanaw taala Anna for it, and praise Allah subhanaw taala for it, and who the Allahu Taala and who was the blessing person that was put in the position to provide for the prophets why Selim
in so many of these different situations his love for the Prophet slice on goes through multiple phases. One of the things about who the Allah animals that by default to being the host of the Prophet spice I'm in his home, he was kind of looked at as the caretaker of the Masjid.
Okay, so when you walk into the masjid about Yuval, the Allahu taala, and was looked at as the caretaker as an authority of sorts within the muscles of the Prophet slice Allah. And one of the firsts that can be attributed to this first is that he's the first person to throw them when after 18 Out of the masjid, the first person to pick the hypocrites up and tell them to leave the masjid of course the profit slice I'm used to hear them say things about him and the profit slice I'm gonna ignore them. Right the profit slice I'm gonna ignore them. And when they were gathered one time, about you've heard them marking the profit slice I'm they're sitting in the measured marking the
profit slice is penalized, it puts into perspective like, Medina, you know, and the prophets lie somebody has to deal with hunger and hypocrites in this situation. And about you know, the Allahu Anhu couldn't have he couldn't help himself. He got up and he picked the person who was talking up and he threw him out of the Masjid.
So that's his first is the first person to give one of the hypocrites the boot outside of the message of the Prophet slicin Because he couldn't hold himself anymore in listening to the way these people would sneer and jeer at the prophets lie summon mark the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and possibly his greatest response to the hypocrites Pantalon and this transforms the way you read the ayat. His greatest response is so great
that Allah immortalized his response in the Quran to the slander of a shot of the Allahu taala. And when we talk about the slander, right, you should know the Allahu Anhu. If we talk about the lessons as we should, because that's the emphasis sort of within this, within within the set of ideas and sort of nor people that slandered people that were hasty people that pass people that cast questions, some of those who were just silent. Some of those who hinted right, they heard something nasty about a pure woman, the Mother of the Believers, some of them start to pass, pass, pass pass, some of them start to decorate it. Some of them were silent. Some of them said Did you hear what
happened? Did you hear what they said? Right under the the banner of curiosity, right. Avila you will be allowed to and who is the only person whose response was so perfect that Allah subhanaw taala put it in the Quran.
And that is that on the Euro the Allahu taala. And when about you came home with the Allahu Taala and
she said to avoid you what everybody was saying. She said Emma testament Romeo coluna, Sophia Isha.
Did you hear what people are saying about the hola hola Anna, did you hear what people are saying about her? You know, forward, retweet. Share. Did you hear Did you hear? Did you hear it? That's what people were doing. Right. That's how this all works. Everyone just passes it. Right. So did you hear what they said about it? Some of the Allahu Taala and he said NAMM was already killed Kevin. He said yes. And it's a lie. He said a country fair in Latin America on the tube. Would you do that? Oh my you. Would you would you do what they're saying? Aren't you sold the Allahu Tada and her did?
She says love Allah. Of course not. Of course I'd never do something like that. And he said, he said to Wallah he hieromonk so that he has a better woman than you. I says her mom. All right Isha is better than you have the if con movie says a clear, slender, right clear line. And what did Allah subhanaw taala reveal verse 12, Lola in Samaria to move with one than what we know in our Minato be unfussy him Hydra. If only when they heard it, the believing men in the believing women would have had a good feeling they would have assumed well inside of themselves. And they would have said however, if going moonbeam, this is clear slander.
Subhan Allah, the One person whose words were settled in the positive sense and this entire thing was unbelievable the low tide on now was he insulting his wife? No, he was defending his mother is defending the wife of the Prophet sighs I'm and saying look, you know, you people's say this say that. Like, do you really think you're better than the Allahu Taala Allah
and Allah subhanaw taala immortalizes that response from our tube or the Allahu taala. And so he had this, this stature, this consistency when it came to them when after Kenyan at the time, and of course that was needed, and one time the prophets lie. Some even saw him holding a sword and standing in front of the house of the prophets lie Selim and it was at a time the sources indicate after Bentyl Pereda, he said what are you doing in the prophets I summon was, you know, he said to the prophets, I send them that I'm protecting you yellow sort of lights a little bit unstable right now. And the profit slice I'm smiling, said Oh, Allah protect him as he's protecting me. So the
prophets like some made your app for him as well. He's also one of those companions who witnessed every single battle alongside the prophets Isom so he's one of the bedroom is one of the people have vetted, which is the highest rank that you can have, of course, from the battles alongside the prophets lie Selim, he witnessed or heard the witness stand up, he witnessed by a total of one the pledge under the tree significant because of what you've heard of the low tide and who did not say let me stay back and watch the house and watch the masjid anywhere the Prophet slice and then was he wanted to be there with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in each one of those situations, so
he goes out with the Prophet slice, I'm in each of these battles, and he's alongside the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would pass away, continues to be someone Subhanallah who goes out and battle under a bucket or on an Earth man, are the Allahu Taala and from engineering. And when I detail the Allahu Taala and who assumed the reigns and of course, unfortunately, the fitna, you know, had broken out the trials and tribulations after the assassination of Earth normal the Allahu Anhu the chaos that broke out, when I little the longtime who went to Iraq, he placed a boy Yuval, the Allahu anhu, in charge of a Medina in charge
of a Medina. So there is this sentiment, there is this sense that this is the person who takes charge of the affairs of the Prophet's life so that when he's alive and when he has passed away some Allahu alayhi wa salam, and he's forever so
sociated with Medina with the message of the Prophet sly Salam, and with the home that he hosted the Prophet slicin on in that Subhanallah was was left until, you know, just in fact that the previous century, the past century, as you can see, we even have the picture of that home as it was left. And he went out, fighting for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And he used to, you know, take pride in this idea of never staying behind no matter what his circumstances were. But when the fitna broke out between the Muslims, he refused to actually fight against other Muslims. So he was on the side of it, it'll the Allahu Taala and which we believe was the right side, right, he's on the side of
ideal, the Allahu Taala and who, but he did not take part in any of the battles that arose the Battle of Safina the Battle of Jamal. Under those circumstances, he did join it, it'll be a lot of time and when fighting against the whole outage, the whole adage of course, we're extremists who tried to kill all all the Muslims, right? That completely took a different route altogether. And unfortunately, fitna breeds that type of behavior and that type of mindset, where they were attacking everybody attacking all of the companions and carrying out all sorts of brutal attacks against them. So he joined it, it'll the Allahu Tada. And in that, I know that we're up against a
shot. So I'm trying, I don't want to rush this, but at the same time share some of these these stories that still show sort of his position that he had with the prophets like Selim. One of the most beautiful stories that you find here is that after he left Medina, and he goes to an airlock of the lab and Ambassador the Allahu taala, and Homer was in charge of Bustelo in Iraq.
And when Ebola you comes to Bustelo in Iraq, so he leaves Medina and he comes to Boston, Allah, Abdullah Abdullah Abbas hears that Ebola YouTube is coming.
Who is it been Abbas to the prophets lie Selim.
He's his cousin, right? He's his cousin, first cousin. And he did not get to witness a long life around the prophets lie some of the love and bustle of the Allahu Taala and Homer had this love for the Senior Companions, right? It's why he was able to capture so much of knowledge for us. He was only 10 years old, when he came to Medina. And he spent 10 to 13. Literally, you know, clinging to the back of the profit slice someone has camel, sleeping in the house of the profit slice and praying to AMOLED with him serving Him as we'll do. And when the prophets lie, some died, we know that an ambassador the Allahu Anhu was the one that goes and sleeps on the doorsteps of these
companions and tries to get their stories right. How was it with the Prophets lie some How did you become Muslim? Tell me some stories. Tell me some Hadith tell me something that you learned. He asked them questions about halal and haram. So basl the Allah and Allah had this love for the senior companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when he heard about you, bro, the Allahu Anhu was coming. He went out to meet him.
And he goes out and he receives him with this humility. And he says to about a Yo bro the Allahu taala. And he says, at the end, Kerala anxiety can be used. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or in Dec, he said, I'm going to treat you the way that you treated the prophets by someone he came to you. Like, here's my chance to host you the way you hosted the Prophet slice Allah. So the first thing he does is he takes him to his house, he says My house is your house. Now, here are the keys.
Because when the Prophet slicin came to Medina, when my cousin the Messenger of Allah came to Medina, the stories of how he hosted the prophets lie Selim not even Ambus as I said, Here's my home, you now have my home and he says, All the furniture, all of them attack is yours as well. Anything that's in the house is yours as well. And he said Kim Alikum Indane Do you have any debts? How much do you owe? So but you know, the Allahu Allah and he said, I have about 20,000 dinar in debt, so even above the law and when I gave him 40,000 dinars
and basically tells him to Zack Allah Who Hydra May Allah reward you for how you treated our messengers on the Larissa. That's a special type of loves Pamela, these younger companions didn't forget years later, years later, when unbelievable the amount of time and who comes to this place in anarchy that no we're going to host you the way you hosted the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But of course, as we said, Who the Allahu Taala and who was one who was going from place to place so you'll actually find that he lived some time in Medina, he lived some time in a sham and Syria, he lived some time in Egypt, he lived some time in Iraq. So what you've spent a few years in each of
these different locations. And one of the places that he lived for some time was Muslim was Egypt.
And when we talked about or about the terminal sama through the Allahu Anhu he said the capital of Egypt was what
will start right that's it Nakahara you
didn't get into the whole car hit on Scandinavia debate. Cairo versus Alexandria it was a city called Full stop. And it's really beautiful because at some point, when you read in the history, there was one neighborhood in Egypt in full start, where about the terminal summit lived? Zubaydah lived Abdullah bin Omar lived on up the love No, I'm gonna be honest lift up without a lift. And about a year ago the love of Tyler and her lifts. So that's a pretty amazing neighborhood that was there in Egypt for a few years, this amazing cluster of Sahaba some of the greatest companions of the Prophet slice and I'm all lived in the same neighborhood. And as soon as the message ID of
Amazon OS was built there, the famous most of them I'm gonna ask
about you immediately sort of assumes this caretaker role. So that senior person who loves the masjid wherever he goes, this is also a trait that travels with him all the time on every single part of his life that wherever the message it is about you, it'll be a lot of time and who becomes that that messages goer that's there for every single slot. That's the caretaker that's the authority. And there is, you know, a story. Actually two stories of him in this regard. One of them is that the governor of Egypt or kebab and Rama or the Allahu Anhu was late to salata Maga one day. So who the Allahu Anhu was that guy
gets really really upset at him for being late to Salah
okay. And he says to him,
don't Didn't you hear what the messenger of Allah slice and I'm sad about people that delayed the market of Salah until the stars come out
an earlier webinar Maria, he said, you know, yeah, but you he said that, you know, I didn't think it was that big of a deal. I had to attend to something I came and this is you know, when we're leading we're still within the window of time and who the allotted time and who said but if people see you doing that, then they might think that the profit slice and I'm allowed for that to happen and the profit slice I'm did that. So he was that person that would insist on the salah being established on time, as well. There's also a narration from marijuana and Hakim Rocha was actually a companion himself marijuana and how come of course is not and you know about you was someone that would
criticize him when he saw him doing things differently from the Prophet slice ALLAH. So he said to him, I mean, look at Allah hada why is it that you're always you know, picking and seeing where the prophets lie, some did something you're saying no, but the prophets lie. Some did it this way. The prophets lie. Selim did it that way. And he said, in the raw Ito Rasul, Allah, He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you'll suddenly have Salawat, the InWa Doctor Who wylfa Canac, were in higher laughter who Harloff NAC said, I saw the prophets lie Selim with my own two eyes, how he would pray, how he would conduct his affairs. So when you do things in accordance with that, we follow you when you
don't, we're not going to follow you. We're going to, we're going to disregard what it is that you're doing, we're going to challenge you. So it's Pamela that that mindset, which is not one of arrogance, but one of sort of carrying what he learned from the Prophet, Sly Saddam, and maintaining that. And that level of respect its power, I actually want us to sort of take a moment and appreciate the different personalities amongst the companions. Right, there is a particular type of personality here, which is not one of arrogance, but is one of trying to do things by the book, trying to make sure that things are by the book. And that actually does play out in the in his book
as well. And his understanding as well, because of course, as different circumstances arose. Different companions had different ideas of how to deal with some of these things that were happening. So one of the things that happened when they got to Egypt, guess what was the introduction of bathrooms?
I don't know if you know this, but in the desert in Arabia, they didn't have bathrooms, the concept of bathrooms was not there. Right. When you you had you had an area that you would go and relieve yourself. But the idea of actual bathrooms and places that were set up was not something that was was known to them. So when they got to Muslim, when they got to Egypt, they found bathrooms.
All right, and no, it wasn't the western toilet, you know, I know I'm not talking about that, you know, called the western toilet, the Eastern toilet, but they had a setup, right? And they had something
that may or may not have been, you know, similar to what we see in terms of that dichotomy anyway.
But in whatever situation, the prophets like Selim had instructed that when people relieve themselves, they don't face the Qibla.
Right, so the Companions faced this interesting dilemma.
dilemma when they got here to Egypt, which was that the bathrooms were facing towards the Qibla.
That's where fifth comes in. Difference of opinion, was the profit slice. I'm talking about this only in an open area. And if the bathrooms were set up that way, do you have to go back home to your home tonight?
And if your bathroom is facing the cupola, you got to reconstruct your bathroom so that you're not facing the fibula or you have to sit and relieve yourself in a way that you're not facing the Qibla Ebola Ebola, the Allahu taala. animal out of his reverence for the qibla, even in muscle, he would not, I mean, he actually inconvenienced himself when he would relieve himself. And he said that we should try to avoid facing the Qibla even if the bathrooms are built that way.
The majority of the Sahaba said no, this is, you know, the, the Prophet slicin was talking about the open area. But I want you to again, just think about the mindset think about the love think about the reverence, think about that idea of just trying to make sure that he's doing things in a way that's pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala. That's something that at the end of the day is is noble is something that you honor and something that you appreciate about a personality that is with the Muslims. Finally, subhanAllah we come to his death, and as we said, He's buried in. So the answer, by the way, is you don't have to go back and reconstruct your home's stuff. Why just because that
could be the first question that comes up. You know, do I have to reconstruct my home it'd be a pretty cool joke if I told you that you have to and then I told you, after you remodel your bathroom that nevermind.
But where does he end up passing away?
very famously, his grave is where Sunwood grave is in Istanbul, which of course was known as Constantinople
which was known as the Queen City of the world was the center. Okay? That's why the profit slice is a made up specifically for Mohammed Al Fattah for it's specifically for that army. Right and one of the narrations that gets transmitted not talking about the the Senate in specific to Mohammed Al Fattah. But this idea of, you know, Constantinople, one day being a Muslim city was a huge deal. Right, because that was the center of it all of the Roman Empire. It was a greater city than Damascus. It was a greater city than full stop. It was a great it was an incredible city. Now when was it conquered?
The 15th century. So how's w over there?
During the time, this is now under the reign of Medallia during that time, under Murali Wu was part of the army that was in battle with the Romans.
And he knew of the narration of the Prophet slice on about that group of people that would be in Constantinople, modern day Istanbul and he wanted to be as close to as close to it as possible. It's panela. The person who hosted the prophets lie some in his home and in his heart, in an Medina
and he is now the furthest away from Medina that the Muslims are at that point.
And he said,
I want you to bury me, Maloney, Hatter either soft often will I do it when only Tatar academical, he said, Take me to the furthest point until you reach the furthest point where we can go. And then bury me under your feet.
Right there at the gates of what is now a stumbling Constantinople, bury me right at the gates. And he says, and once you take me there, so he got sick, he didn't die from from any type of loans. He was sick, and he was passing away. He was in his 80s at that point will be a lot of time. And he said, once you take me there, I'm going to share with you one more heavy.
So there's one Hadith I haven't shared with you yet.
It's very interesting Subhan Allah because you have about 50, a Hadith from who the longtime and who 50 narrations from the Prophets lie some, but his last one is literally going to be in his dying moments. And he said, Take me to the furthest points, prepare me for death over there. And I'm going to share with you one more narration. So I mean, what you have is a legend amongst the companions and the children of the companions at this point, right? So they carry him and they take him and there is this anticipation, what is the Hadith that he's talking about? And he said, I'm going to share with you a hadith, Lola and Nirala Hertie Mahadev to come home.
If I wasn't in this situation of mine, I wouldn't share this hadith with you. But basically because I'm about to die, I don't want to hold back anything from you. So he said Samaritan Rasulullah sallallahu and he was sending me a good man mozzarella usually Kabila he shaved the halogen.
I heard the Prophet size and I'm saying that whoever dies without associating a partner with Allah will enter paradise.
It's a very hopeful Hadith, right? Why would he want to hold that back? So if you get too lazy,
but I want you to know the value of la ilaha illa Allah the value of worshiping God alone, that whoever dies upon that, you know,
Hola me Allah's parents that allow us all to die upon that statement in our hearts firmly in our hearts that there is only one God, that the prophets lie some said whoever dies upon that will enter into paradise. Now of course, there might be a journey not everyone gets to paradise at the same time and with the same level of ease, but eventually, those people who die upon the Kadima of la ilaha illallah, they will enter into a Jana And subhanAllah as he shares that he passes away right after it. So he dies not just upon La la la la, he dies sharing a bush right sharing the glad tidings about the statement of la ilaha illa Allah, and he was buried there right at the gates of
Constantinople. And eventually, of course, when it came under the Solon then you then have the grave of Abba Yuval, the law of town under the very famous grave about you and the messages sent on YouTube and the entire district in fact of Turkey. That's named after our human on Saudi all the alotta analysts Pamela one of the most surreal experiences I had and I think some of you might have it, but it's it's something to think about is if you go to Turkey, right before Umrah or Hajj so one year, you know, I got to go to Turkey right before or Umrah or Hajj And subhanAllah it's literally one day the last day in Turkey visiting of what used to be a lot of time on his grave in Turkey and
then the next day being in Medina
where the message of the Prophet SAW Selim isn't where the house of Allah you will be alone and it wasn't just thinking Subhanallah how magnificent. You know, what a stretch what a life, what a stretch of glory, this man had and hosting our messenger SallAllahu Sallam and his dedication to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The last thing I'll share because we're at the time of salata, Asia, is I want you to actually think about something that land which is a walk, when people go there and they pray.
All of that, and the prophets, like some says, Whoever builds a masjid for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah, that Allah has prints I would give them you know, Jana, that the reward of that would be transferred. Imagine people still praying in that land and that area that was given for the prophets of Allah, Allah and he was some of them from Verona job, and it's people that it's still a walk, it's still a means of transferring edges are still a means of transferring reward to have what you have, it'll be a lot of time. And I forgot to mention one thing.
Just as the fact that I remembered, who did the Prophet slice and make him the brother of
this also shows you the status of someone, okay? The fact that the prophets lie, some appointed him to what he appointed him to the fact that Allah chose him to be the one on Saudi that it gets to host the prophets lie Selim, and who the prophets lie some does Maha between him and who else Now of course, ultimately, he was hosting the prophets lie Selim, but he still had a brother from them, oh, hygiene that he would host does anyone know who it would be?
Most are women are made all the a lot of time. So his brother is actually Muslim. So he's the brother of Musab and the host of the prophets lie Selim. So the first person who brought Islam to Medina is Subhan, Allah beautifully hosted by this host of the one who would eventually come being the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and consider the brother of Muslim or the Allahu taala. And may Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with Allah YouTube and, and his wife on a YouTube May Allah Subhana Allah reward all of the unsought of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he left behind only one daughter, Amara Amara, who also is a companion. Well, the Allahu taala. And so one daughter
and we don't know of any lineage that survived but of course, the example and the 50 Hadith are So may Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with them and the Allah sent His peace and blessings upon our messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his family and companions Allahumma Amin gelatin next week we will talk about our beloved no Salam while the Allahu Taala and who of course represents a different entry point for the Prophet slice them into Medina and will continue How would how they welcome the Prophet slice alum I can take maybe two questions in shot let's add then we'll break for slot three shot yes
and go out with Molly's army led by Izzy for a battle
it's actually a great question. So
how was he how do we deal with the dichotomy of he was on the side of it it'll be a long time I know and then fighting undermine vldlr I know that is because it has some of the Allahu Anhu in it me how they say it. Profit size and praise that has some money and it may be lost
Hannah Montana and you'll see her behavior attorney Halima 10 million Muslims that Allah will bring together two large groups of Muslims through him so after al Hassan will be low on who made peace with Morocco the low tide and who then that's where they all gathered under the banner of Mongolia
