The last person that we're going to cover is the least known of this journey.

00:00:18 --> 00:00:40

And his name is a BUSA Barreda Nell Hussite Radi Allahu Taala and Abu Salah Barreda never sleep, or Ill has sleep. So Breda is the least known of this group and I want to talk about why I'm talking about him for a moment. How long was the prophets lie some in Mecca calling the people to Islam?

00:00:42 --> 00:00:42

A decade.

00:00:44 --> 00:01:29

Over a decade, right. And it was demoralizing. The public called the Prophet slice on them, it was demoralizing to the Muslims, of course, to be persecuted, to be run out between the Muslims that fled to Abyssinia, the Muslims that were beaten to death in Mecca, the Muslims that were starved to death in the boycott, the Muslims that are now fleeing to Medina, the prophets lie some leaves Mecca after this decade, with not that many followers. Right. And on top of that thought of happens, he went to thought of it his salatu salam, and he didn't find the reception that he was expecting from them. sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is still thinking with

00:01:29 --> 00:01:46

the heart and mind of Dawa of calling to Allah subhanho wa taala. So as he's going through the desert here and proceeding, and Allah is protecting him from these enemies list Allah sai Salam is not just thinking about protection, he's still thinking about the message. So Allah highness,

00:01:47 --> 00:02:22

he's always wearing that banner of DERA sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he has passed through the House of Amanda that will be allowed to Anna Anna. Well, soon allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has escaped rather Surakarta, the law and was escaped the prophets high sometime in this regard. And the prophets lie some is at another point in his journey, and they're finally starting to get close to Medina. Obviously, the exhaustion of the journey, the tiredness of the journey, and Subhanallah you're at that last stretch, and the prophets lice and I'm sees a tribe.

00:02:24 --> 00:02:28

Now, the chief of that tribe has a very imposing presence.

00:02:29 --> 00:02:31

And it's late at night, it's dark.

00:02:32 --> 00:02:45

And this could be it. Right? He founded and after this entire journey, someone's finally going to get that bounty from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam being taken back to Mecca.

00:02:46 --> 00:03:23

So the prophets like Selim, as this man approaches, you know, subhanAllah, the way that you carry yourself it's not like Sulaco, where the prophets lies on makes dua against him, or things start to happen to him supernaturally, the prophets lie some just carries himself in a very interesting way. And also last I sell them before the man can ask him, man and who are you? The prophets lie Selim says to him, who are you? Lenin? And that is a way of actually owning the conversation, right? Because the pursued, the one who's running away, is going to start to flee in a different place. But if he says, Who are you, Manuel Kong, then that shows that there is nothing to worry about. So the

00:03:23 --> 00:04:09

prophets like Selim starts the conversation with him and says to him, man, and and remember we're working on the law animals right next to him like this can end at any moment. Someone can say, Oh, you're him. There's my 100 camels. So the man responds. And he says, My name is Buddha. My name is Buddha. Now what do you call cold, cold water? What do you call it? What do you call not Dallas right now? But right braider comes from the same root word. So the prophets like some is asking, what's your name? says my name is Buddha. So Rasulullah sai some turns to Abubaker like look at look at the way he's owning the conversation sly Salam and he says yeah, Baba kill battle the Amana or

00:04:09 --> 00:04:09


00:04:10 --> 00:04:12

our affair just got cool.

00:04:13 --> 00:04:37

And rectify, borrow the Amana right so he used the play on the name of Buddha and said things are good. Now this is the same thing when the province like Sam said when he saw so hated normally and he said Sir hula so his name comes from easy our affair just got made easy. Even though so Hallo the Allahu Anhu was not an easy negotiator. But the prophets like Selim found optimism and all of these things. So look at the way the conversation is proceeding in the middle of the desert,

00:04:39 --> 00:04:43

and the profit science and I'm says, woman 18 Who do you belong to?

00:04:45 --> 00:04:57

So somehow I look at how the conversation has started. Like this man means no harm to us and hamdulillah we're good like we're travelers and we found goodness. So Buddha now said, and who are you?

00:04:59 --> 00:05:00

He said, I am

00:05:00 --> 00:05:08

deploy Abdullah the prophesy son did not shy away Salallahu Salam, I am Mohammed Abdullah Abdullah rasool Allah, a messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:05:10 --> 00:05:14

And I have come with the message of Islam, Kala minutes now towards Islam.

00:05:16 --> 00:05:50

And the prophets like some gives him Dawa. In that moment, think about it. Now you've got a desert. You're a fugitive. And you just revealed your identity and you're completely calm, composed. And now you're telling this message to these people in the middle of the desert? Well, so allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells them what Islam has one God, the Lord of the heavens in the earth, and I am His Messenger, who is receiving divine revelation, and my people have run me out of muck, and I'm going to another people, and Buddha, here's the prophets lie some and Buddha is a simple man. He says to him, how do I embrace your religion?

00:05:51 --> 00:05:53

How do I become one of you?

00:05:54 --> 00:06:07

So he says, You say a shadow Allah Allah, Allah wa shadow Ana Muhammad Allah so Allah, He said, a shadow Allah Allahu Allah wa shadow and Muhammad Rasool Allah. And Buddha says, Hold on, and he goes, and he talks to his people, 70 people.

00:06:09 --> 00:06:13

And he tells them about Islam, and all 70 of them follow their chief.

00:06:14 --> 00:06:49

So now on the way from Mecca to Medina, Subhan, Allah woreda Radi Allahu Allah and His people have all become Sahaba in a moment, meaning Subhan Allah, all of Mecca with its pain, and it's perfectly persecution, and it's trouble from the relatives of the messengers of Allah and he was alone. And now you have all of these people that are embracing Islam and captivated by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they stayed with the Prophets lie Selim. They learned the basics of Islam, and also lost my son and has a gym and now in the middle of nowhere,

00:06:50 --> 00:07:34

of 70 people sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but again, he was close to Medina. And Breda says to the Prophet sly Simon, where are you headed? You know, you should stay with us for some time and the prophets like some explains that he's headed towards yesterday at the time, which of course becomes Medina, and that the people are waiting for him and all that. Merida takes off his turban and he ties it to the staff of the prophets like Selim. He said you should enter it with the with the standard, right you should enter it with this, this banner and the prophets lie Selim takes it. And Ben Oh, Sam, this tribe of Buddha remains Muslim. And they will join the Prophet slice alum sometime

00:07:34 --> 00:07:35

after a hurt.

00:07:36 --> 00:08:15

So Buddha will join the prophets like some as a companion, as well. And this tribe of people Subhanallah in one moment, embraces Islam in a way that no group of people in Mecca embraced Islam with all of that Darwin that trouble with shozy Subhanallah you never stop giving Dawa and you never underestimate the person right in front of you. Never underestimate the moment, never underestimate the person that's right in front of you and the influence you can have on that person. So hello, that seven people that were saved from the fire in a moment with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Buddha or the Allahu taala. And he goes on to become a person from the simple

00:08:15 --> 00:08:50

conversation of hey, look, if in Islam, do you want to learn about Islam bourree the or the low annual becomes a confidant to the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam. If you remember if you go back and you listen to the biography of God, yeah, all the Allahu anha Barreda was the one who the Prophet slice and I'm sent to Benin was Talak to basically ask around and ask what was happening. Why? Because Buddha was not known to the people of Makkah, nor was he known to the people of Medina, and he wasn't known Tibetan masala. So he was the perfect spy. So he just went around the minimal standard. And he asked, you know what's going on here and he learned as a spy that they were going

00:08:50 --> 00:09:28

to attack the prophets lie. So then they were planning to launch a surprise attack on the messenger. So Allah Islam, so he becomes a trusted confidant of the prophets lie Selim. His being anonymous actually suits the mission that he would be given. He goes on to become a great Mujahid to fight in in multiple battles. And he is one of the people and this is how Allah so beautiful. He's one of the people that the prophets I saw them allowed to be a flag bearer on the day of Fattah hammock on the day of the conquest of Mecca. So you got people like Tonhalle, the Allahu anhu, and these lofty companions from Mecca coming back and then you have this unknown man from the desert Buddha, or the

00:09:28 --> 00:09:59

Allahu Anhu. Walking proudly in front of the army alongside the prophets I seldom and by the way, he also goes on to become a narrator of Hadith. And so some of the Hadith from Abu Musa Giraud the Allahu Anhu that we mentioned were narrated by Buddha or the alo Talon who narrates about 30 to 40 Hadith from his own body, Allahu Taala and who on behalf of the prophets of Allah and he was salam. He was one of those who went into a book, and the rest is history. And subhanAllah we learn through his story

00:10:00 --> 00:10:38

Another type of profile, the person who you look past, one of the messages that Allah azza wa jal gave the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was to not look past people, you don't look past people, the Prophet slicin could have easily seen this man as a nobody in the middle of the desert that he just needs to be from. But instead, he goes on to become a great companion of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and his people are saved from the fire as well. So just to recap on this journey of the hero of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it started off with the Prophet slice I'm leaving it up, nobody thought about the law and when his bed and the humiliation of the

00:10:38 --> 00:11:21

mashallah keen, and the prophets like Selim, accompanied by Albert Camus lyrical, the Allahu anhu, an amateur member for Halal Halal the Allah Tala and Abdullah rated for the Allahu Taala animal. And by the time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got to Medina, he had a miracle that was performed in the house of Allah and by little, the Allah. He had a prophecy of the most powerful man in the world, the most powerful kingdom coming into or under Islam. And he had a tribe larger than any tribe that would have embraced him in Mecca in a moment in the middle of nowhere before he gets to Medina. sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and then he enters into about it his salatu salam. And in

00:11:21 --> 00:11:57

each one of these incidents, there's a great lesson and Buddha or the Allahu Taala and who would go on to pass away as well as a Muslim and is buried in El Medina. May Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with all of the companions of the Prophet signs Allah may Allah subhanaw taala allow us to be amongst those who are received by the prophets of Allah when he was at his help. And that can be hold him that description of on that riddle the Allahu Taala and, and that can be given the Bushra by Him the way He gave the Bushra to rock and roll the Allahu Taala animal and that can be by his side and enter into Jannah in his ranks the way that we're either or the longtime animal entered

00:11:57 --> 00:11:59

with his ranks into Mecca Allahumma Amin
