I think people forget sometimes that the prophets lie some was alone and five for many of the moments of five, there was one companion that was with him and that was a dividend how the federal the alonside. So imagine being there for the worst moments of the prophets licensed life.
When the prophets lie, some is being mocked in the worst way. When the prophets lie some is being humiliated on the prophesy, some is being hit with stones and shoes. Zaid little the Allahu Taala Anholt was the one who was with the Prophet sighs I'm in life and was actually trying to stop the stones as they were coming towards the prophets I saw them and also took a beating himself. He's also that one companion that was entrusted with accompanying the family of the prophets lie some on the heads are so faulty model the Allahu anha on consumer or the Allah and her soda or the Allah and they all went with Zaidan Hadith to and Medina and of course he himself his position with the
Prophets lie Selim he was Hibou Rasulullah isI sir and he was the loved one of the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam and that's a lofty position to have. Because what it tells us is that loving Zaid is a sunnah if the prophesy son loves him so much that he is the beloved one of the Prophet slice Allah, then to love him is a sunnah and it's a great way of enjoying closeness to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So this story that I'm going to share with you it's a narration from a lathe and sad, it's recorded as well by Ivanovna. Bottle and even Kathy it, that'd be die when you hire the Zaidan and honey federal the Allahu Tada Anholt once rented a mule from a
man and a Thoth. So he's out on this journey. And he asks to rent this meal to right. And the man tells him that, okay, I'll rent it to you for such and such price. But at the same time I have a shot, I have a condition said what is the shot, he said, I need you to take me to a particular place after we get to this place, you can drop me off there, and then we'll agree upon a time that you'll be able to ride and you come back and you'll pay me and that'll be the end of that. So it seems like a pretty normal transaction. Right? So it's a little bit low on Who says so I agreed to the condition. And this man from five tells me go this way, go this way, go this way until we ended up
in a very strange alleyway, right this is something that you might actually be able to relate to in that sense. We ended up in a very strange alleyway. And when we got to this alleyway, I see a bunch of dead bodies this very dark and scary situation. So ze though the Allahu Anhu said I realized as soon as we got there what the man was about right the basically the man led me to this place he was going to rob me he was going to kill me and he was going to throw me with the rest of the dead bodies. So as a little the Allahu Taala and who looks at him and he said the man you know they've got off the the mule and the man was walking up to him to kill him as a little the Allah Tada and he
said, I said to him, Danny Solly Alacati Look, can you let me pray tonight guys before you kill me. It's Pamela this becomes a sunnah by the way of sorts when you see many scholars in history that would ask as they were about to be killed by their tyrants give me a chance just to pray a couple of records Let me pray to like as to Allah subhanaw taala let the last action be salah. Okay, if you're going to do this anyway. So the man says to him, he mocks me says do you think the prayer did any good for these people? Right? That Salah do any of these people good? He said go ahead and pray. Okay, fine. Go ahead and pray. So say there will be a lot of time and who said so I started to pray.
And he said when I started to pray the man was not patient with me finishing my prayer. He walked up to me to kill me. So as he walked up to me to kill me, I said yeah autohelm Allah, He mean almost Merciful of those who show mercy. And suddenly we heard a voice law talk to low don't kill him. So he said the man was surprised by the voice. So he went out to look and see where the voice was coming from is there someone that is approaching? And that's going to stop him or attack him? But he found nothing. So as a though the Allah and who said I continued in my salon, he approached me again to kill me. And I said, Yeah, are hamara honey, oh, Most Merciful of those who show mercy. And he
said the same thing happened. He went out. He looked to see where that voice was coming from. He couldn't figure it out. And he said the third time he comes to me again to do it. And I say yeah, oh, hamara I mean, oh, Most Merciful of those who show mercy. And he said when he did that, and I said that. Suddenly I saw a man coming forward, and he had a spear. And at the tip of that steel spear was fire, and this horseman throws the spear directly through that man, and it kills him.
And then the horseman turns to me, and he says, when you
You called out Yeah. Or hamre. He mean, almost merciful. Those who show mercy. Harlequin to for summer is sabya. I was in the seventh heaven. So he's an angel. He's making it clear to him that I'm an angel. I was in the seventh heaven when you called out. Yeah, Bahama. Well, I mean, and when you called out the second time, yeah, I don't have a law. He mean, he said, by the time you called out the second time, he said, Come to first summer dunya. I had just come down to the heaven directly above the earth. And he said, When you called out and said, Yeah, I'll hamara I mean, the third time he said, I made it to you. By that time, I made it to you, And subhanAllah that is when he actually
killed the man who intended to kill Jacob and have Ethan will the alongside who would live of course, to become a martyr in the Battle of Mota. So this is a powerful example Subhanallah not just for his age, and how the federal the law townhall, but in general, the way that Allah subhanaw taala protected these companions, and it's not just in the battles, which we'll talk about, but even the idea that when they called out to Allah Subhana Allah with such conviction, that the heavens would be moved by the decree of Allah subhanaw taala to come to the aid of that person to where this angel comes from the highest of the heavens, to support this man who was one of the highest of the
companions, and the most beloved of Rasulullah sallallahu it was
