Whatever 111 a lot I mean when people to do the tapping Allahumma salli wa salam, abiotic Arabica, rasool Allah Mohammed and sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are early he will be your salam to see him and cathedra some hamdulillah Ramin 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, sallallahu alayhi salaam to the city of the Prophet size. 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 profit 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 facade, 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 probably 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 chose about yo bro the Allahu Anhu to be the host of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So first of all, what's his name?
Anybody know his name?
And he guess, and you can't google?
Abdullah That's a good guess. But it's wrong, but it's a very good gusta you will 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 Yuval, the Allahu Taala and who is Khalid Ibn Zayd harlot Ibn Zayd? Of course, we know that many people used to have a Kunia Hakuna 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 an tube, but his name is actually Khalid Ibn Zayd ibn kool aid on the Allahu Taala and his father is Zaid Bin KoolAid. His mother is Zara bin
Salman Taisce. 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 Amsterdam or the Allahu Taala anhand on haram or the Allahu Anhu. We talked about the ants of the prophets of Allah on Islam and they were the ants 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. Ben Hoonah. 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 Abdulmutallab, the mother of the grandfather of the prophets
lie Selim. Okay, the great grandmother of the Prophet slice Allah was actually from this tribe of Benjamin ajar Selena, the daughter of Hashem. The mother of Abdulmutallab was from this tribal banana jar. So the great grandmother of the prophets lie Selim is from Benin and Jada and Medina. Therefore the prophets lie some always had an affinity towards this tribe, and the Prophet slice alum. You know, when he visits Medina, this is going to be the tribe that hosts him. This is going to be considered his family, his relic
Tim's when he goes there, And subhanAllah it's interesting because the very area that Ebola you will be allowed to have and who being a prominent person from Benin ajar lived in, is actually the area that I've been looking at it. The grandfather of the Prophet slice I'm grew up in the Multilib grew up in that area, not realizing that one day, his greatest progeny would come back and settle that area under much different circumstances. So the area of Medina because of course, it was divided by tribes, the area of 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 it will had his home in the land of bento Naja, 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 prophets lie some in Mecca, and took by Angela Acaba, 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 an Medina and that he actually goes out to the Prophet slice alum 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 prophets lie, some 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 salam. 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 in 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? 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, I'm beloved, no, Babe and cellule, who hates the prophets lie Selim, who's the chief of the hypocrites and some of the hypocrites may 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 unsought 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 profit 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 classwork Take me wherever it will take me. And it is commanded
by Allah subhanaw taala to go where it will go. Meaning the camel will sit, where it sits, and that's where I will stay. So cassava goes and, you know, makes its rounds and you can imagine the anticipation. The prophets lie Selim. lets loose the reins. And it kind of ends up Subhanallah in this area of veteran 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 Tada and he was ecstatic.
All 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 Selda Radi Allahu Allah has with the Prophet SAW Salem, 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 a tube 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 they'll be fine. Now, at this point,
where should the prophets lie, some sleep? Should he 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, some 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 the 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 100th of the prophets 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 wasallam This is the amount of reverence and love that they have for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salaam, 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 you know, the Allahu Taala and who 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 filco ROTC 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 animus as he Allah says, Allah How about you take upstairs will 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've 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, uh, so flew out of luck. 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. I bet you've couldn't
do it. So well. You've been on my YouTube they continue to stay away from the middle of the upstairs. And then one night about Yuval the Allah Tada and who says
for control philosopher Rika Fillmore Fatih. 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 a 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 sallam, were an emotional piece that 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 will adjust but why don't you please move upstairs? It will be easier for us. So the
prophets lie Selim 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 Metatron will clean and the Prophet sighs 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 the dresser and anything that's one of the prophets lie some own. Right the prophets lie 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'd see what the prophets lie some left over. And I'd ask what part of it did the Prophet slice on eat from
so I could follow the same part that the Prophet slice on ate from.
So this is just the reverence and the love that they have for the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. 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 haram and who are messenger of Allah? Is this garlic haram? So the prophets like some said law when I can eat a crossbow prophesy some 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 profit slice and prefer not to do it. So the prophets lie 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 about you a little the law and when he said Yeah, teeny Minaya teak
Yeah, teeny Minaya tick Mean, you know, they come to me, or 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 lie. Some are saying this is not something you have to you know, observe. This is something for me. When the angels come the Prophet slice Allah 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 profit slice alum, you know, taking care of him taking care of his guests every day preparing the food sending it up, and the profit slice I'm 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 the
prophets lie some that we talked about with unsustainable the Allah Varna
Her house which was the miracle of the profit 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 unsolved alright, don't try this at home. None of you have this miracle. Alright, well, you can just be like, let's go get 30 more people. But it's about a cup but 30 people is a lot right? Go bring 30 people into the house. About you bro. The Allahu Anhu says whatever you say 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 probably Allah and was witnessing this, the prophets lie. Some 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 prophets twice, I'm through that miracle 160 people so this was one of the ways in which about UVA law, the law angle did not just witness the character of the Prophet 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 Prophet sly Salah, the host of the Prophet slice Allah and this lasts for seven months, while the masjid is being built. The prophets lie Selim living with a boy Yuval the Allah Tala and 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 on them you can see how close the house of who the a lot of Thailand who is to the the most of the prophets lie some of course being the green dome, and then you can go to the next image. So this is if you're going to have Medina Allah subhanaw taala allow us to visit soon but in the nighttime and having accepted Umrah and Hajj Lama mean, if you go to Medina, that's where you would stand to literally be standing in the house of Ebola human on Saudi Arabia a lot of times where that red circle is. So I mean, literally, if you pass by the grave of the Prophet, slice alum from Babylon, 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 ebube and on Saudi while the Allahu Taala and who asked after the profit slice on finishes being measured finishes the the construction of the message it does the profit slice I'm telling WB should probably find another house now. No, that's where they then started to build the dots. And the big rocks 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 Tada and who then gets to become the neighbor of the prophets lie 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 about human unsalted or the Allah Tada and who so what would he do about you know, the Allahu Anhu and his wife every day would prepare food for the profit slice on them.
And they'd leave it out for the profit slice Allah and his family. And basically the profit slice of him 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 on him and 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 aid from some of it, and they would 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.
Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
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, Salah 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 Beckett or the law to an annual and set night and then he sees a model the Allahu Taala annual so I will record an AMA 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 the opposite 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 like 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 time to think about how humbling that is and what servant leadership actually looks like. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Well, no, we're letting fcbd Raja and the lady of Raja Kuma province is obsessed Abu Bakr and Omar and I swear by the one and 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 Tada and
a knock on the door. On a Yo bro the Allahu Taala and her answers. And she says, marhaba and Rasulullah 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 northeast, he was working in the palm trees nearby. He comes and he says mod hub and be Rasulillah will be man Mara, welcome to the Messenger of Allah and wit to those that are with him. What is it that brings you out at this time on Messenger of Allah because this isn't the time that you typically would come to the home.
And he recognizes and 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 whodunnit 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 tobacco, 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 Salam. And he gives it to a human. You she bakes the bread. And then what you Radi 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 lie. Some is 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, about you know, 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 sallallahu Sallam and Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Taala and who in almost all the law and the dates the freshwater, the meat, the bread and the prophets like Selim, 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 profit slice and I'm is a Dad What does he say? He says yeah tube bad it'd be hard to heal Qatar in a faulty myself. Oh boy, you take this to Fatima my daughter take this to fall to 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 faulty 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 model the Allahu Tana Anna is the neighbor as well and that small little area you have the federal rights you have the house of Allah you you have the house of fountain
model the Hola Hola. Hola Anna with a prophet 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 Subhanallah this this narration is really it's touching
because it shows you that these peoples Hello the Messenger of Allah sai some didn't want from this dunya too much the Prophet size and I'm says HUBZone Allah Herman what Tamron wrote up 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 is
not a fresh baked loaf of bread. Hold on. Well, I'm on what Tamron what are the top so the prophets like some are saying all of these things and Demi it now. The profit slice I'm starting to cry. It's Pamela like this is such a near Mount from Allah subhanaw taala and he says to Abu Bakr and Omar or the Allahu Taala and Homer well leadin fcbd latas Luna and her the Noreen Yeoman Fiamma.
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 Alhamdulillah Allah the O ashburner, 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 prophets lie. So 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 on Saudi man mentioned other people that were involved in feeding the prophets lie some at night in the prophets lie, some was humbled by the neuroma 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 messengers of Allah sunnah that he's imparting upon us the praise the gratitude on the prophets, like some festival bucket and model the Allahu Anhu my by the way, you're going to be asked about this name, this blessing, you're gonna be asked about it. So thank Allah subhanho to Anna for it, and praise Allah subhanaw taala for it, and Allah you will know the Allahu Taala and who was the blessing person that was put in the position to provide for the prophets lie
Selim in so many of these different situations his love for the Prophet slicin goes through multiple phases. One of the things about who the Allah and was 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 message it
Okay, so when you walk into the masjid, about you will be allowed Thailand 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 on at 15 Out of the Masjid. The first person to pick the hypocrites up and tell them to leave the Masjid. Of course, the prophet slice I'm used to hear them say things about him and the prophets lie some would ignore them. Right the prophets lie some would ignore them. And when they were gathered one time, about you've heard them mocking the Prophet slice I'm they're sitting in the masjid mocking the
Prophet slice Subhanallah 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 prophets lie some because he couldn't hold himself anymore in listening to the way these people would sneer and jeer at the prophets. Why Simon mock the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and possibly his greatest response to the hypocrites pan Allah 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 and shadow the Allahu taala. And when we talk about the slander of I don't usually Allah and hell if we talk about the lessons as we should, because that's the emphasis sort of within this, within within the set of ayaats and sort of newer people that slandered people that were hasty people that passed 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 started 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 above you below the low tide and who is the only person whose response was so perfect that Allah subhanaw taala put it in the Quran
and that is that Alma Yuval the Allahu Taala and when I bought you came home with a Allahu Tada and
she said to Abba, you what everybody was saying. She said, I'm gonna test tomorrow my Hakuna Sophia Isha.
Did you hear what people are saying about artificial the Allah Allah? Did you hear what people are saying about her? You know, forward, retweet. Share. Did you hear Did you hear Did you hear 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? So the Allahu Tada and he said Neram without he can kill them? He said yes. And it's a lie. He said a Quincy fairy Latin America on the tube. Would you do that? Oh my you. Would you would you do what they're saying? Aren't you settled the Allahu Tada and her did?
She says lo Allah. Of course not. Of course I'd never do something like that. And he said, he said to Allah He hieromonk so that he has a better woman than you. I says her mom. All right Isha is better than you have if good movie says a clear, slender, right clear line. And what did Allah subhanaw taala reveal verse 12, Lola in Samara to move more one than one minute to be unfussy him Hira 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 gone moonbeam, this is clear, slender. Subhanallah 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 they say that. Like, do you really think you're better than some of the Allahu Taala Mmm hmm.
And Allah subhanaw taala immortalizes that response from a what you call the Allahu taala. And so he had this, this stature, this consistency when it came to them when after pain 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 bento Pereda, he said, What are you doing and the prophesy son was, you know, he said to the prophets, I send them that I'm protecting you, you know, 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
profits is a major app for him, as well. He's also one of those companions who witnessed every single battle alongside the profits license. So he's one of the bed that he owns. He's one of the people embedded, 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 hunt up, he witnessed a total of one the pledge under the tree significance because of what you what are 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 I'm was he wanted to be there with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, 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 salam, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would pass away, continues to be someone Subhanallah who goes out and battle under Abubaker or under Islam, or the Allahu Taala and whom engineering and when I do 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 Manuel the Allahu Anhu the chaos that broke out, when I little the longtime man who went to Iraq, he placed about Yuval the Allahu anhu, in charge of a Medina, in charge of and
Medina. So there is this sentiment, there is this sense that this is the person who takes charge of the affairs of the prophets lie Selim when he's alive and when he has passed away sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he's forever associated with Medina with the message of the press.
offered by 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 subhanho wa 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 who, which we believe was the right side, right, he's on the side of it, it'll 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 a little the low tide and when fighting against the whole outage, the whole outage, of course, we're extremists who tried to kill 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 hone 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 love and bustle 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, and Abdullah Abbas hears that who is coming?
Who is it been Ibis to the profit slice on them?
He's his cousin. Right? He's his cousin, first cousin. And he did not get to witness a long life around the profit slice I'm I'm the love and bustle 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 Prophet sly someone has camel, sleeping in the house of the Prophet slice and praying camelid with him serving Him as we'll do. And when the prophets lie, some died, we know that even Ambassador Lila and Omar 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 him questions about halal and haram. So an ambassador the Allah who had this love for the senior companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when he heard about you, what are 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 year ago, the Allahu Taala and who he says, at the end, Kerala in xiety, can be Salah 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 profit slice and I'm not even I'm biased as I said, Here's my home, you now have my home and he says, All the furniture, all of the metallic 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 borrow the allowance out and he said I have about 20,000 dinar and debt. So I've been about so the Allah and Allah gave him 40,000 dinars
and basically tells him to Zack Allah Hi Allah, may Allah reward you for how you treated our messenger Salah Larissa. That's a special type of loves Pamela, these younger companions didn't forget years later, years later, when unbelievable the Allahu Taala and who comes to this place and enter that now we're going to host you the way you hosted the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But of course, as we said, Who the a lot of time 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, Syria. He lived some time in Egypt. He lived some time in Iraq. So a boy you've spent a few years in each of
these different locations. And one of the places that he lived for some time was muscle was Egypt.
And when we talked about about the Tucson Metro the Allahu Anhu he said the capital of Egypt was what
will start right that's it not a car here. We didn't get into the whole car hit on Scandinavia debate
Cairo versus Alexandria 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 Abdullah Mohammed bin Ross lived without it lived. And I was able to do a lot of other animal lives. 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 live in the same neighborhood. And as soon as the messagebird of Amarula 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 masjid is about you a little the a lot of time and who becomes that, that Masjid goer that's there for every single salah. 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 Anoma Well, the Allahu Anhu was late to salata Muslim 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 earthquake an AMA he said, you know yeah about 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 leaving we're still within the window of time and I believe it'll be a lot of time Andrew said but if people see you doing that then they might think that the profit slice and I'm allowed for that to happen in 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 check him out. Now Luca was actually a companion to 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 prophets like Selim. 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 law, Ito Rasul, Allah, He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you're suddenly a solo ad for InWa. Doctor Who wylfa Canac, were in high laughter who high left neck 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 Prophets lie some of them and maintaining that. And that level of respect is Paola, 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 in his film, 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 muscle 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 Qibla, you got to reconstruct your back
bathroom so that you're not facing the Qibla. Or you have to sit and relieve yourself in a way that you're not facing the Qibla avoidable, the Allahu Taala animal out of his reverence for the Qibla. Even in Messiah, 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, this, the prophets like some 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. And 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 I 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 Prophet slicin A major ask specifically for Mohamed Fattah for it specifically for that army. Right and one of the narrations that gets transmitted not talking about the the Senate in specific to Mohammed 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 Phil's thought that was a great it was an incredible city. Now when was it conquered?
The 15th century. So how's that boy up there.
During the time, this is now under the reign of Medallia during that time, under more Alia, where you 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 Prophet slice I'm 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 South often will do it for you only Tatar academical. He said, Take me to the furthest point until you reached the furthest point where we can go. And then bury me under your feet.
Right there at the gates of what is now stumbled of 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 and 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 Subhanallah because you have about 50 a Hadith from who the Allahu Anhu 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, about you as 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 Harvey Maha death 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 Rasul Allah He SallAllahu and he was sending me a code madman Salah usually could be lucky Shane, the Hello Jana.
I heard the Prophet size and I'm say 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, who Allah may Allah prints and allow us all to die upon you
That statements 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 died upon the Kadima of la ilaha, Illa, Allah, they will enter into a Jana and Subhan Allah as he shares that he passes away right after it. So he dies not just upon Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah He dies sharing a bush throughout 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 Sultan, then you then have the grave of Abba, Yuval, the law of town I know the very famous grave about you, and the masjid Sultan, YouTube and the entire district in fact of Turkey that's named after a human on Saudi all the alonside and was probably one of the most surreal experiences I had, I think somebody 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 Ramadan, or Hajj And subhanAllah it's literally one day the last day in Turkey, visiting a voyeur it'll be a lot of time on his grave in Turkey and then the next day
being in Medina
where the message of the prophets lie Selim isn't where the house of Allah you will be alone and it wasn't just thinking Subhanallah how magnificent. You know what, what a stretch what a life. What a stretch of glory this man had in hosting our messenger Salallahu Salam 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 on the profit side, some says whoever builds a message it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala that Allah's 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 Harney was some of them from banana 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 a fact that I remembered, who did the prophets lie, some 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 prophesy son but he still had a brother from them will hygiene that he would host does anyone know who it would be?
Most 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 Prophet slice. 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 considered the brother of Muslim or the Allahu taala. And may Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with a boy Youtube and and his wife on a YouTube May Allah Subhana Allah 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 may Allah sent His peace and blessings upon our messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his family and companions Allahumma Amin Jolla and next week we will talk about our beloved no salaam while the Allahu Taala and who of course represents a different entry point for the Prophet slice them into Medina and we'll continue how with how they welcomed the Prophet SAW Salem I can take maybe two questions and Charlotte's and then we'll break for a lot today show Yes.
a law firm
and go out with my US 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 idle the long side I know and then fighting under ma vldlr I know that is because it has some of the Allahu Anhu in it me how they say it. Prophet slicin praise that has some money. And it may be that Allah subhanaw taala and you'll see her behavior attorney Halima 10 million
I'm assuming that Allah will bring together two large groups of Muslims through him so after it has some of the low Aanholt made peace with more valuable the low town and hold them that's where they all gathered under the banner of Mahalia
because I can look at maybe one question from the sisters and inshallah we'll break for a shot if any sister has a question
