The next set of biographies also is within some of the women around the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, do we have any Eskimos in here, by the way? Anyone named ESMA. Now, you all know an Eskimo, right? Okay. Any of you have Eskimos in your family? Yeah, you got some estimates? Are they tougher than usual? Yeah.
So it's really interesting Subhanallah I'm gonna call this part the Eskimos of Medina. Because there's something very interesting about everyone who's named us not all of the Allahu Anhu in engineering in the seal of the prophets of Allah Hardy was Salam is that they all had this very unique characteristic of being very tough, similar to nusseibeh and the Seba, so we said the new sabers all had a certain character to them. So Esma let's kind of go through this a little bit. And first, let's recall the most famous SMS from Mecca. And what ties them together. So who's the most famous Esma that you know when you hear the name Esma Who do you think of?
A smart Vince Becker? Well, the Allahu Taala and Han Asma bint Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu Ma. A smart we'll be back here was that you need to attain the one who tied her waist belt and who went on the Hijra and who served alongside the prophets nice I'm gonna go back to the call of the Allahu Anhu the one who stood firm in the face of Abuja while the tyrants and was actually slapped by Abu Jaha when she refused to give up the location of her father and the prophets of Allah Hardy who was the one who stood in front of the most ruthless tyrants that they had seen even after Islam. At the age of 100 years old. She stood in the face of a hijab, a noose, with absolutely no fear whatsoever, and
would be there by the side of her son Abdullah Abu Musab al Abadi, Allahu Tada and Hamas. So a smartphone will be Allah and have been Becker has an incredibly strong personality.
Right. And I showed the law and he used to extol her virtues in that regard. He was known for just being an incredibly strong woman, then you have a smart Vinter mace.
A smart mentor may some of the Allahu anha, the wife of Abu Bakr, Siddiq, or the Allahu Anhu was also an extremely strong woman. This was the woman that washed the body of Abu Bakar with the Allah and when he passed away, this is the woman who argued with Omer Mahapatra, the Allahu anhu, about the Fallen about the virtue of the people who made the two Hydros who migrated to both Abyssinia and Medina, who argued the superiority of the people who made the Hijra to both Abyssinia and El Medina. And she is the one who insisted on going out. So I think this is going to be the consistent theme with all of them. She insisted on going out with the Prophets lie someone had to deal with that, on
the farewell hedge and she was nine months pregnant. And she gave birth at the meet thoughts.
In Medina, Khalifa where you go into haram, she gave birth to Mohammed bin Abi Beckham, literally on the edge of the Prophet SAW licen them so she was not going to miss out the reward of the hedge with the profit slice on them. And that's one of the most, you know, prominent stories of the macaques because imagine giving birth at the main thoughts. And by the way, she's still made Hutch. Don't ask how she still went out with the profit slice and made hedges did with that. And it wasn't a business class ticket or taking the train like that. Incredible Human being right. So Subhanallah those are the smiles of Makkah, right? The isthmus of Medina,
the mother or the woman who may be the mother of more other than Jebin, who we talked about is also a smart than Tom. A smart man Tom.
I remember we said there were two women who went out on Leila tilaka to give the pledge to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in Macau. One of them was for sure. nusseibeh or the Allahu anha and the other one was this woman a smart been Tom? Radi Allahu Taala and her and you know what's amazing Subhanallah she too, was fully pregnant. And she gave birth on the night of October meaning the same day that she gave the baby out to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam she gave birth to a son named she Beth she bath while the Allahu Taala and so you have the smell of Makkah who refused to miss hedges or were there the hedge with the Prophets lies and ended up giving birth at the me
thoughts and you have the smartened bins from Medina who refused to miss Leila Tanaka and ended up giving birth on Leila tilaka. And then there's another very surprising smile by the way. This one was actually pretty shocking to me, as well. Her name is a smart Vince merhaba a smart Vince Makarova.
This is the mother of a Bucha had
a Bucha had his mom is also an asthma, and she's also heavy about the Alana. You imagine that Abuja Hill. His son goes on to become one of the most famous companions Nkrumah and his own mom leaves him in my
And does Hijra to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So a smart bins Makarova Radi Allahu anha the mother of Abuja had became a Muslim and migrated to meet the Prophet slice on Medina. She's not even you know, a lot of these elder holdouts, right? They waited for the prophets lie some to come back to Mecca.
And then they embraced Islam later on. Right some of the elders of Quraysh that that fought till the very end and then they embraced Islam. This woman, the mother of Abuja, had actually went out to the Prophet saw the wall and he was
and her son was the Pharaoh was the fifth element of this ummah. And she embraced Islam. So there's something about the isthmus right? These are the these are the mountains of the Sierra. Now the most famous of them from Medina. Is a woman by the name of snot didn't Yazeed even a second? A smart bint he has eat all the Allahu Allah. Her nickname according to have been hedger was Habiba to Nisa, the spokesperson of the women. You already know where this is going. When the women wanted to say something to the prophets, why some request something they knew that the strongest woman amongst them to go and make that request was a smart thing to XID the second, hopefully, but to Nisa. And,
first of all, her father has either been a second so I mean, again, you see, the spirit of the unsavoury is even a second will the Allahu Anhu was one of those people who did not flee from the prophets of Allah who it was Solomon
and who was murdered defending the Prophet slice. I'm in the Battle of Hood and he was unrecognizable because of all of the wounds that he took trying to defend the Prophet sighs I'm someone that people flood. He has either been a second or the Allahu Anhu was a man who threw himself at the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and defended the Prophet slicin from every direction and was murdered. So this is his daughter, his daughter, a smart Vinci as Eid Al Ansari and they used to say about her father, Wamena, Nassim and yesterday NAFSA Huberty Allah Allah Tila, they used to recite the I O, and they would remember her father, that from those people that have sold themselves
for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, seeking to please Allah subhanaw taala so it's not that he has either or the Allahu anha she's the first actually she's the first woman who was divorced in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the ayat a varied
outward OMA on Zillow 300 The two little Metallica, the IR the verses of ADA came down in regards to her so she's the first divorce see in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam she narrates 10s of a Hadith from the Holocaust of the Prophet slicin with the women. The prophets lie some obviously had a Holika once a week where he would sit with the women of Medina and of course the Mahabharata as well and the prophesy someone give them specific Halaqaat and specific time. And so she narrates the Hadith, that hadith about how the prophets lie some greeted the women. When they came as a party into the masjid and the prophets lie some signal towards them, he greeted us in that
way sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Many of the Hadith where the prophets lie some answered questions about things that were specific to the women are narrated from a smile the Allahu anha giving us sort of a window into the Halacha with the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam some of the warnings the admonishing of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam regarding backbiting and extravagance. She narrates those a Hadith from the Prophets license halacha with the women, the eye on some of the tough seed of the ayat of the prophets lie Selim, actually come through this narration this route of narration primarily in Abu Dhabi route from snap into z, where she's talking about some of the
things that the prophets lie some told the women explaining some of the verses of the Quran, Kalia into the AlLadhina asafo Allah unfussy him talking about tomb and Rahmatullah. The famous verse about forgiveness. The Tafseer of that verse comes from this halacha this gathering of the prophets lie Selim with the women. She also narrates one time the prophets lie Selim said and this is just one of the narrations but I love this narration.

They're always slandering people. And they're always mostly doing a beta lab. They're always causing problems between people who love each other. So they're causing issues in the community.
And then he said some ally some Allah Hunedoara Alanna Bura Alana, those who who seek to ruin the lies of the innocence, meaning they lead the innocence into destruction they ruin the lives of the innocent by gossip and by slandering or by causing issues within the community. So she narrates many of those Hadith from within the Halaqaat of the prophets lie some in Medina. She also just to give you an idea of her, she used to go and she used to prepare food and she stand outside the masjid of the prophets why Selim and after a shot, she would serve the Prophet sallallahu wasallam what she cooked. So there was one time that she was waiting outside the masjid of the Prophet salAllahu

So a smart turned around and she started saying Allahu Akbar La ilaha illa Allah Allahu Akbar, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, pleased with what she had just heard. Now, the basis of this is that obviously these people had different circumstances. Right? They all had different circumstances, but the idea of a moussaka villager, that they wanted to have the share of the
reward, that the unsought of the prophets lie Selim men and women, rich and poor, all had that spirit of sacrifice of wanting to approach the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and have a share in the reward and the Prophet slice them honored that and also Allah slice them said that the women have the reward of the men, when they provide because the one who enables good is like the one who does it.

Really what it comes down to is that none of these women ever wanted to be left out of the edges of the reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala
