Solimar Ernie he was like me he was tell him to see him and cathedra hamdulillah from an Hamdulillah. We're blessed to reconvene once again, after Ramadan unless Pontotoc accepts all of your time of fasting and all of your Ibadan May Allah azza wa jal allow us to maintain the thrust and the steam of what we gained bid the night owl and go into the hedges strong as well, Lama Amin, and we continue in sha Allah to Allah tonight, and over the next few weeks with dinner with some of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And I want to remind everyone that we covered a bulk of the wives of the prophets lie some in season one in the first episodes because we talked

00:00:40--> 00:01:22

about those women that embraced Islam early on. So we didn't cover all of the wives of the Prophet slice, send him an order, but we're now looking at them chronologically, as it relates to their time coming into the picture, when we look at the theater of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam. And the next two stories that we have are actually very similar in regards to how our mothers that we'll be covering tonight and next week came into the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And I want to remind everyone, that every single marriage of the prophets lie Selim has a special divine wisdom to it. And in fact, more than one wisdom, some of those wisdom Subhanallah, you can decipher

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

very easily, as will be the case with the two that we're going to be covering in sha Allah to Allah. And what was very common in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that one of the ways that you reconcile between two tribes, is that the king of one tribe would marry a noble woman from another tribe. Okay, so a noble person, especially when there was a hostility and there was a method of reconciliation. You can find this practically amongst all of the interactions of the Arabs, that the leader of one people will marry someone prominent from the other people, and that will essentially end the hostilities between them. As Pamela there are three such marriages that we

00:02:02--> 00:02:44

find from the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one of them we already covered. So there's a genre that represents three women from our mother's may Allah be pleased with them all. One of them we already covered and she was the daughter of the most hostile person to the prophets lie Selim in Mecca. When the prophets lie, some return to Mecca, who was the enemy of the prophets lie some that was still left. When the prophets lie. Selim came back to Mecca from Quraysh. Abu Sufyan, right, who of course, would become Muslim, at the very, very last moments. I mean, it took him to the right to the very last moments of the conquest of Mecca. Abu Sufyan was still plotting

00:02:45--> 00:02:52

a way to overthrow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the prophets lie some married his daughter, what was her name?

00:02:53--> 00:02:54

Anyone know her name?

00:02:56--> 00:03:33

Ramona, what's her What Is she more commonly known as? Ohm Habiba? All the Allahu Taala Anna I'm Habiba was one of the early Muslims she went to Abyssinia and the prophets like Selim married her, and of course, was not united with her until much later in the Sierra so her marriage was conducted in Abyssinia. She joins the Prophet sly so much later on. And subhanAllah look at the logic of the Arabs, Abu Sufyan is trying to kill the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But when he got the news that the Prophet slice Salam had conducted in the capital with him Habiba, he was ecstatic. He said, That's a great match. Why because the prophets license is a noble person and these people

00:03:33--> 00:04:11

worship lineage, and that soften the heart of Abu Sufyan to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam. So he reconciles through that marriage, even though it's years later. It brings the hostilities of Quraysh down a bit right that the prophets lie some marries the daughter of Abu Sufyan. And then you have the woman that we will be covering today but in the nighttime of Judea are the Allahu Taala and we will see the bulk of the blessing that came from the Prophet slice and his marriage to her. She comes from a people that were hostile to the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam that were between Mecca and Medina. So you have the enemies in Mecca. And then you have been in methodic, who we're

00:04:11--> 00:04:50

going to talk about tonight Mennonites, Allah who are a little removed from Mecca between Mecca and Medina. And then in Medina, you have the Jewish tribes that were not happy that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not from amongst them. And the prophets like some is going to marry Sophia bintray While the Allahu Taala Anna, and we'll talk about Sofia or the Allahu Taala and her next week so Subhanallah the three main contingents that you have here the prophets like Selim will marry from them and that will be a part of you know, reducing the hostilities and in the case of God or the Allah Tala and has we're going to see an amazing blessing that comes out of the Prophet slice

00:04:50--> 00:05:00

Imams marriage to her. So tonight inshallah to Allah, we're going to take a step back and I want you to appreciate this dimension of the Sierra Bitton Anahita. Allah, the woman

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

that we'll be talking about is Baba bint al Harith Hypno D now whose name was changed to joy RIA mental health, you know the rah rah, the Allahu taala. And she comes from the tribe of benomyl Stalock benomyl Stalock benomyl. Stalock is a tribe of fissara in Makkah, a very prominent tribe that's related to Quraysh but they live outside of Mecca. They're a powerful tribe that lives outside of Mecca but have relations with Quraysh because they're from bamboo, Zara, and jewelry or the Allahu Tana Anna is the daughter of the chief of Benin was taller. So she's technically a princess, the Amira of her poem, I was actually going to put that in the title then I said, people

00:05:43--> 00:06:25

will object so we didn't use the word Princess because Princess has certain connotations, but that's literally what she is. She is the daughter of the leader of the tribe. And how did the middle era a very powerful men that resides outside of Mexico, and this is where you find the famous incident in the Sierra known as Lazada to Benin masala, the Battle of Benin metallic, and you can look at it by two names. It's called a Muslim and what a seer, or rosewoods venerable Stalock now I'm actually going to put up a picture in sha Allah to Allah and mortar acier is the body of water that exists next to Ben and will Stalock so if you look there, it's an Arabic obviously in green you have Maccha

00:06:26--> 00:07:06

at the bottom, and you have Medina at the top, you can see where motor a car which was their most prominent body of water is located it's literally right in between a little closer to Mecca. Okay, so motor is here is the location, but in will Stalock is the name of the people, but it will still it is the powerful tribe that resides around what I see here, ally to Quraysh and they have the famous idol of Illuminati. Okay, so some Quranic connection to it, as well. Now, because this group of people were not Muslim, and they were allied to Quraysh by blood, and they were considered a powerful tribe, they joined Quraysh in their hostility towards the Prophet sly someone he made the

00:07:06--> 00:07:46

intro to Medina, so they kind of been in solid state out of internal Mecca politics during the first period of Islam. But once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Companions made hijra, they joined Quraysh. And the historian say because they had an interest in the caravans, still being able to pass through their area. Because once the prophets lie, Selim and the Muslims were expelled, or were put in that situation where they moved to Medina. What did they start to do? They started to intercept the Muslim start to intercept the caravans that were coming to Mecca. That's a political strategy right there stuff was stolen, and they're intercepting the caravans. And so Benin will

00:07:46--> 00:08:29

still it has an interest in allying itself with Qureshi to make sure that economically they're still well off. You see politics existed back then too. So all these states are thinking about economy. That's what they're thinking about, as well. The caravans pass through here, it's in our benefit to be allied to them. So what happens is when the battle of attack comes forth, then it will stall it actually supports Quraysh in the Battle of it. So they bolster their army, and they send some reinforcements to fight against the Muslims in Medina, even though they're not a direct party to this conflict. Up until now, after a hood, Ban animal Stalock decides to launch a surprise attack on

00:08:29--> 00:09:07

the muscles. So they're being instigated by Quraysh. And basically, the logic is this. The Muslims will not expect an attack from you. You don't have any hostilities between you and the Muslims right. Qureshi has hostilities to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his followers in Medina. You don't have those hostilities, surprise them with an attack, you'll get amazing spoils of war you'll take all of their goods in Medina you can enslave their entire population. This is a golden opportunity for you. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not a ruthless person. The prophets lie Selim will not attack people preemptively in an unjust way Rasul allah sallallahu

00:09:07--> 00:09:45

alayhi wa sallam they thought could be taken advantage of in this regard. So the prophets lie some received some knowledge of this, that there is a plot to attack the Muslims coming from Mauricia the location or Benin will steal it. And this takes place according to Ibn Hajr al Rahim Allah and Imam of the hubby. The fifth year after Hijra in Shaban was right before Ramadan, fifth year after Hijra on Shabbat. And some of the historians say it was the sixth year after Hijra. Allah knows best but even hudgell Rahim Allah makes a strong case that's five years after Hyjal. So it's pretty close to have it right.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

And they're starting to make their plans. So when the Prophet sly salaam hears the news, or he has whatever comes to him of news that they're plotting this attack. The prophets lie Selim seeks a

00:10:00--> 00:10:35

means of verifying that Subhanallah sometimes these characters come up in these stories and you can't just glance over the name you have to actually look at the person as well. The prophets like Selim says a man by the name of woreda in the sleep, I want you to remember this name in sha Allah to Allah if you can. You know, I actually wanted to do a short bio on this person, this companion at one point, very interesting man. Barreda Ibn Al Hussein. Breda Adnan Hussain is a bedwin man who was literally living in the middle of nowhere.

00:10:36--> 00:10:38

And when the prophets lie, some was making his Allah

00:10:40--> 00:11:17

on the way to Medina, the prophets lie some saw this man shepherding some sheep and his people literally in tents in the middle of nowhere. Their bed winds that live in the harshest climate, away from Medina away from Mecca. And the prophets lie Selim never stopped giving that Allah so even in the Hijra on the prophets lie cinemas fleeing for his life, the prophets lie some comes across Buddha, while the Allahu Taala and who read them asleep and the Hijra. And Buddha is a simple man, the prophets lie Selim, you know, comes to him and he's courteous with the Prophets lace on him as he would be with the travelers and also lost licenses hella careful Islam. Have you heard about

00:11:17--> 00:11:24

Islam? And Barreda? You know, he hasn't heard over this past decade what's happening in Mecca? He has no idea what Islam is.

00:11:25--> 00:11:41

So he says no, what's Islam? So the prophets like some tells Buddha or the Allah, Allah and who, what Islam is and you can tell already that he's a companion so you know where the story is going. And Buddha says, that makes perfect sense he goes and he calls 30, to 70 of his people.

00:11:42--> 00:11:45

And they embrace Islam together and they pray Russia with the Prophet slice, and I'm in the hitch Allah

00:11:47--> 00:12:04

Subhan Allah. So in the Hijra woreda. And his comb, and his people that are living on the way, became Muslim, and they kind of went back to their bedwin life. They live in the desert, and they live in this harsh climate, and this is how they live, but now they're Muslims. So they're praying and they're maintaining their Islam.

00:12:05--> 00:12:11

Why is this important? Well, sola Salam says to Barreda. So I want you to go to bed animal stomach.

00:12:12--> 00:12:50

And I want you to pretend like you're a mercenary. You're a Bedouin, who is interested in joining the battle against the Muslims. So confirm that there's actually a plot to attack the Muslims. You see, he kind of fits the look. He's not known to the people of Makkah. He's not known to Ben and Mr. Pollack, he's not known to any of the city populations. So Barreda goes to benomyl Stalock as a spy, essentially. And he goes up to an hateth. And he says that I'm a man who wants to participate. I heard that you're thinking about attacking Muslims. I have some skill in the battle, and I want to participate, so I can get a share of the spoils. So when hateth in the law, confirms to him that

00:12:50--> 00:13:24

yes, we're plotting at this time and this time and this time, and you can join our army basically, and you'll have a share of the spoils. So he fits the look right? He's a Bedouin man in the middle of nowhere, he fits the look, he goes back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he tells the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that indeed Benin masala is planning to attack the shows you by the way, Justice already on the part of the prophets lie some he didn't attack people based on a rumor. Well, so Allah say some confirm that they were indeed planning to attack then the prophets Allah Allah, Allah makes a plan to preemptively attack them to stop them from carrying out their

00:13:24--> 00:13:29

plans. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam makes his way

00:13:30--> 00:13:34

with the companions to Laura acier to the area have been animal Stalock

00:13:36--> 00:14:13

now a lot happens on this trip. This is like one of the most momentous and underrated chapters of the sea, it'll also last ice and I'm puts Z double harissa or the Allahu Anhu in charge of Medina. Remember, we talked about the special rank of Zaid and that I showed the Allah and has said that the profit slice and I've never sent out an army except he puts his aides in charge and that he would have if he was alive, he would have put them in charge of the ummah. So this is one confirmation of that are one of the specialties of Zaidan and Hatti. Federal the law and so he's in charge of Medina. And this is different from bedlinen oath because the prophets lie some himself is going to

00:14:13--> 00:14:55

leave with the army. All right, we're leaving Medina we're leaving the vicinity of Medina, the prophets lie some marches with a group of companions towards motorists here. And he puts a Bobeck here while the Allahu Taala and hope with the banner of the more hygiene again another sign. So Abu Bakar carries all the allotted time under the banner of the Mohabbatein and Saturday Vinoba are the Allahu Taala and who carries the banner of the unsought. So the prophets like some leaves with this army towards what a seer towards been in masala with a backup in charge of the MaHA Jadine sorry, the blue brother in charge of the unsought Zaidan Hadith will be in charge of Medina now, who else

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

was anxious to go out with the prophets like some of his companions in this battle?

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

The Manasa tea, the hypocrites.

00:15:04--> 00:15:21

Now, you might think to yourself why Abdullah No babe and salute all of these people who turned back and oceans, and who made every excuse in the world to not go out into a book. Right? And Allah condemns them for that. But when they heard about the prophets, I'm going to bet and we'll start that they all joined the party. Why can anyone tell me why?

00:15:23--> 00:15:24

What is it sorry?

00:15:26--> 00:15:31

They want to join better nostalgia. That's a good guess. But not exactly. Yeah.

00:15:32--> 00:15:32


00:15:34--> 00:16:06

the potential for the spoils? Now, the potential for the riches of Benin will select why because this isn't easy. When we're going to go out there. We're going to catch them unsuspecting. And so we get to go out with the Prophets lie Selim, he's going to seize them, put them under siege before they have a chance to attack. This is an easy win. So we'll get to go out and we get to take all of the spoils of battle. That's how the Manasa teen think the hypocrites thinks so they made all of these plots to get out ahead. They you know, and better. But now our beloved Oh babe and saloon and the hypocrites are like, Yeah, let's go with them.

00:16:08--> 00:16:33

So the monashee porn heavily infiltrated this Muslim army that go to what I see it easy when easy spoils lots of wealth, and we can claim to be marching alongside the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the prophets lie Selim lays siege to what a seer. And this is how the prophets lie. Some does so he has the archers literally rained down arrows upon them

00:16:35--> 00:16:54

while home lotto, and while they were unsuspecting, so they weren't expecting instead of going in and slicing people up the prophets, I seldom has the archers rain down arrows upon them, they go into their homes and for about an hour, the prophet slice and have maintained a consistent attack of arrows

00:16:55--> 00:17:26

until they surrendered. Okay, what came about this very few casualties, less than 10 casualties from the men all from the men. And there was only one Muslim casualty. So from the other side, seven to 10 people seven to 10 of the men die from the Prophets lie some side. One of the unsought was mistakenly hit by one of the arrows. Okay, so one of the unsought was mistakenly hit by one of the arrows and you have a bunch of spoils this was a wealthy nomadic tribe a bunch of you know, wealth,

00:17:27--> 00:18:11

camels, goats and everything right coming forth. And the profit slice and I'm essentially secures this victory. Now, a lot happens here. Number one Manasse was destroyed. So one of the key idols in the Arabian Peninsula was destroyed. Number two, Abdullah of No babe and said who saw an opening to pit the Mahajan and the onslaught against each other. When he went when the unsought were helping them, oh, hygiene and the prophet and he said the very famous statement first he said, some men Kalba Kia kulak fatten your dog and it will eat you. Who was he speaking about? He was making these types of comments. So I'd love to know Babe and said the Chief of the hypocrites in Medina, he's

00:18:11--> 00:18:28

telling the unsought fatten up your dog and it will eat you look at these Mohabbatein they're taking advantage of you once again. Why are you supporting them? Why are you helping them some incredible cook? And he says Emma in the hallway Hola. Hola. And vagina Illa Medina, la yo regional as zoominfo

00:18:29--> 00:18:35

says, when we go back to Medina, the noble man will displace the humiliated men.

00:18:36--> 00:19:17

Who was he speaking about? himself overthrowing the prophets license. So I'm Dylan Obinze ruled plots a coup while they're out of Medina because this is not like they're not just on the outskirts of Medina. They're far away from Medina. But obey even said overseas and opening for a coup to overthrow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Allah subhanaw taala foils their plans. So Allah reveals Quran exposing the words of our beloved No babe and hello to his followers, and that plan is foiled. Another thing that happens on us with an animal Stalock is this is where the slander of it shall the Allahu Taala and had took place. So remember, the man needs a diversion tactic,

00:19:17--> 00:19:56

right? He's been exposed, Everyone now knows he's a hypocrite. So what does he do He instigates the slander of it shall the Allahu Taala and her mother Aisha, which will essentially distract from everything regarding him and take all of the attention to the gossip of the day because people love drama. People love fitna. So instead of the guy that literally was trying to plot a coup in Medina from the inside has been exposed for his hypocrisy. You now have the talk of the town about our mother it shuttle the low tide and a scandal on the prophets home sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this is where the slander of it shall have the Allah Tala and had took place. This is also where the

00:19:56--> 00:20:00

loss of her necklace, the famous story

00:20:00--> 00:20:36

With our mother HLD Allahu Allah, the loss of her necklace were the prophets like some stops the whole army on the way back to find her necklace. And Allah reveals the verses of TMO this is where it happens and that's what benomyl started. So they get back you're like, Where does God come in? I promise we'll get to her inshallah time. They give back to Medina and the spoils of war 2000 camels, 600 Goats, 100 families that are amongst the captives. It's a big deal. What has happened here, right. This is unlike bed that unlike a herd, it's a first for the Muslims in Medina.

00:20:37--> 00:20:41

Judea, whose name at that time was Bella Bella.

00:20:42--> 00:21:00

She's the daughter of the chief and her husband was one of the casualties so her husband's name was Musa fair enough one Musa fair event. So one Musa Musa one was one of the casualties. And her father who's the Chief of venerable Stalock escaped.

00:21:01--> 00:21:06

So she is the most royal of the captives that are brought back to and Medina.

00:21:07--> 00:21:52

Duany Etel the Allahu Taala Anna, she says that three days before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to Benin masala. I told my people that I saw a dream of the moon rising over what I see. So she actually saw some Pamela, a dream of the moon. And we know that from the incidence of the marriage of the prophets lysozyme that this was a sign of the prophets lie Selim about to marry a person, right the moon rises above Mauricia and she did not know how to interpret it before the battle happened. So her father escaped. Her husband was one of the casualties and she is taken captive by sabots have no place Saboten Okay, so the Allahu Taala Anhu who is one of the companions

00:21:53--> 00:22:00

he's the famous man who raised his voice in certain foods a lot. Okay, dabit terminal case. Now,

00:22:01--> 00:22:37

there is something in Assam called Animal cassava, which is ransom. Basically, when a person is taken captive, they can request to be freed and the person gives a reasonable timeline as well as a reasonable price and they basically free themselves from captivity. So she demands when Qatada from Thaba terminal case right away. She basically invokes the contract. The contract is that she'll be freed for seven OTAs of silver. And you know, that's something that she can earn on her own she can she can find a way or one of her people can ransom her. Right but there's a way out for her from captivity. So she has her way out of captivity. And

00:22:38--> 00:23:25

I shuttle the low tide and her takes the story from here. I saw the allot of time and hundreds and this is a long Hadith she said lemme customer Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Saba been in LA Stalock work on a jewelry it's been 200 feet for Sammy lethaby dibny face Oh, leaving your Ambien level. So she says that when benomyl Stalock was defeated. The captives were distributed and one and basically Joe at about the low tide and he was a captive to two thirds of my base or to one of his cousins. Well, cats about two and She invoked a form of ransom for herself basically a contract to free herself from captivity. I know enough. See how what can add some rotten who attend moolah

00:23:25--> 00:24:10

Hatton, La ilaha illa, Allah that minasi She says Julia was a beautiful woman. She was an elegant woman, like it was clear that she was someone special. No one saw Joe at all the low tide on hand thought she was a normal woman. She was clearly a person of royalty, a person of dignity, a person of great beauty, a person of great eloquence as soon as as soon as she spoke, she captivated you. And she had something special about her. Right? So this is a tough journey for actual the low tide and how the slander has started. She doesn't know about it yet. She says so Allah He ma Hua Illa Allah a to her Allah Darby who did it. She said, next thing I know, she knocks on the door of my

00:24:10--> 00:24:23

house. We get back to Medina from benomyl Starlock and a knock on the door. And she said, and it was Jody, I saw the Hello, I'm her answers the door and what does it say? For Carrie to her? I hated her. Right away.

00:24:24--> 00:24:26

I looked at her and I hated her guts.

00:24:28--> 00:24:51

Our mother it says a very honest woman will be allowed Tyler and her like why are you here? What do you want? Right for Korea to her right away her DeLacy got the best of her. And she said that, you know, I immediately felt a certain way about her and that's how I told the alo Anna is she verbalizes her feelings so she said first impression horrible. I don't like you. Right?

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

And she says so she said to the Prophet salallahu Salam yada so Allah Anna juhayna yet been to Hadith it

00:25:00--> 00:25:31

I'd be the Lord say the only that I am God I've been so had is the daughter of a how to be the robber who is the leader of his people what God Asaba and even belie Melania Alec and I've been struck with this tragedy that you're well aware of. So a character for Sammy Lisa hypnotise face Nisha mass and so I ended up in the possession of rabbits have no place for cat up to who and an FC and I invoked the contract with him to free myself from captivity.

00:25:32--> 00:26:13

So I came to you a stare at NACA, Allah kita. Bertie, I came to you so that you can pay my ransom. Basically, you know who I am. I'm a person of royalty. And I'm coming to you so you can pay my ransom. Now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam could do multiple things, he could pay it, and he could let her go. And that's the end of that. Right? And the prophets lie some was willing to do that. Those that want to attack Islam conveniently leave out the fact that if the prophets lie, some wanted to by all of the rules of war back then the prophets lie some could have taken her as a captive, right by all of the rules of engagement that exist at the time. The prophets lie Selim says

00:26:13--> 00:26:16

to her, for her lucky fee, hate him indolic

00:26:17--> 00:26:23

Remember everything the prophets lie some does is that of Divine Wisdom. He says, How about something even better than that?

00:26:24--> 00:26:31

And she said, What is that the prophets lysozyme said if you want so I could ransom you. I could pay off your ransom and go free or I could marry you.

00:26:33--> 00:26:35

So she said now I'm yellow suit Allah.

00:26:36--> 00:27:16

I want to marry you Oh messenger of Allah. So the prophets lie. Selim conducts the marriage. Now what happens as a result of that I settled the Allah Allah is still narrating this, as it's taking place. For halogen, Hebrew in Anansi and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam into zoologia July RIA mental health. So the news got out that the prophets like some was going to marry Jodi Benson had it from Benin, masala, the daughter of the chief. So what did the people say? The people immediately said us how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam? Wait a minute. You mean we have the in laws of the prophets lie some as captives for autosol who maybe add him so they let all of their

00:27:16--> 00:27:56

captives go? Because they said, how can we have the inlaws of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as captives, even if they were hostile to us, even if they were planned to be attacked? How can we keep the inlaws a little sooner? allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as captives, so everybody freed their captives. So, he settled the Allahu Taala and heard the famous statement she said, from a lamb rotten Kennett. aagama Bala Catan Allah call me him in hell. She said, so I don't know of a single woman that was a greater blessing to her people than Joy do the low on hand to her people, all of her people were freed because of her. So over 100 of the captives and their families were let

00:27:56--> 00:28:36

go free, and they were given back their stuff. And basically in Medina, there is peace now between the Muslims and then in will Stalock and many of them embrace Islam, because of what they just saw of the generosity, the gesture of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now the story continues and the plot thickens. It gets actually very interesting. And how to how to combine the.in Erbil, Iraq, her father, he doesn't know what's happening. He escaped Medina and he's thinking to himself, how can I go free my daughter. So and how did him not be the rod. He basically gathers everything that he has left all of his hidden possessions, all of his camels, all of his goats all of his

00:28:36--> 00:28:44

wealth, and he makes his way to Medina to free his daughter from captivity. So while he's coming towards Medina,

00:28:45--> 00:29:10

he enters into what's known as Wordle. Archaic the value of an arcade. This is a blast Valley on the outskirts of Medina. The prophets lie some prayed in this valley, a very famous and wild animal Baraka bless the Valley wide electric phenomena in a liberal he looked towards his camels for Rafa Phoebe very rainy minha and he saw two of them and he loved them. So he looked at two of his camels and you're like, these are really special.

00:29:11--> 00:29:27

Felt like yeah, Bahama fishermen mean she had been paid. So he basically hit those two camels in a particular place in a peak and then he made his way towards the Prophet sallallahu Sallam with everything else. So it comes to the prophets lie. So I'm not knowing that the prophets lie, some married his daughter.

00:29:28--> 00:29:52

And he enters upon the prophets lie. Somebody says, Listen, yeah, Mohammed, a sub two Magneti will have their feeder who said Oh, Muhammad, you've captured my daughter, here is her ransom and he presents all of the stuff to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam so the prophets lie some smiles at him. And he says, for anal bear Iran Illa Donnie, the you have Tahoma will actually wear the two camels that you hit in the valley.

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

So he and he says he shared because Allah the prophets lie some describes the exact location I know exactly where you hit those two

00:30:00--> 00:30:00


00:30:02--> 00:30:17

so it had it says, a shadow Allah, Allah, Allah Masha Allah Mohammed Rasul Allah. He took shahada in that moment, no more words needed. He said, fellow Allah He not Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah. He said, I swear no one knew about what I did except for Allah.

00:30:18--> 00:30:58

No one knew where I hid those camels except Allah subhanaw taala I bear witness that there's one God and that You are the messenger of Allah. And then the prophets lie. Some informs him that he actually has married his daughter, he's overjoyed. He embraces Islam. His two sons that were with him also embraced Islam. So the brothers of God also embrace Islam. And basically this solidifies the Islam of all of the animals to Allah Subhan Allah this people that were planting a surprise attack on Medina, were now preemptively attacked, brought to Medina, but the princess is married, they all become Muslim and they see the generosity of the Muslims and now they're allies, to the

00:30:58--> 00:31:06

people of Medina and in fact part of the people of Medina against Qureshi and the people of Mecca and certainly in fact, one of the brothers of Judea

00:31:07--> 00:31:50

in the Hadith becomes a hadith Narrator While the Allahu Taala Ultramarine so this is the story of how the prophets I'm Mary's this woman and how she becomes the greatest blessing to her people as usual the Allahu Taala and has said that any woman had ever been to her people. Now as I said her name was Bella which means free of all sin free of Ulsan and you find in the books of Hadith Baba, stay up till here listen. Al Kabir Illa Hassan, which really is me but what is Xena module area when we Hema, the chapter in Sahih Muslim and you find it and Buhari and others of changing the name when the prophets lie some chose to change the name of a person and specifically the name belt rock

00:31:50--> 00:32:27

because it was a common name that women had at the time and the Prophet slice Allah found it to be an exaggerated form of praise of a person and also lost them instead would change their names whether it was sentimental, the Allahu italiana Zenodo the Allahu Taala and how many more what the Aloha and their names were all changed to different things from Dawa and as if not above so the Allahu anha says that when the prophets I said Mary Judea, he changed her name to Judea, what kind of yuck Raho and UCOL Hara German nd but Allah the Prophet slice on hated that it would be said that he left righteousness or he left piety because even the language the function of the language, if

00:32:27--> 00:32:45

the names remained about Allah would have suggested something about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that is inappropriate. Now, the thing Subhanallah that concerns me most about these biographies are that I love to actually look into and I think is of most benefit to us, is the impact the profit slice I'm had on a person.

00:32:47--> 00:33:30

You can see these people coming from backgrounds of wealth, of prosperity, of prestige, and suddenly they become righteous worshipers, some of the greatest worshipers alive. And right before Ramadan, we talked about Zayn and Ben jaswal, the Allahu Tada and how Xena with all the Allahu taala. And he went from being this noble, wealthy woman that had some some level of materialism but then after she married the prophets license, what does she become known by her complete asceticism, her complete good and her worship to the point that she's hanging a rope in the masjid that she can lean on and continue her pm all night long. So a woman that becomes distinguished by her Korea, and suddenly

00:33:30--> 00:34:10

seemingly has no love for this world whatsoever. No matter who the prophets Iceland married, subhanAllah no matter what background they came from, suddenly, their preferences, their attachment to this world, their appetite for this life completely went away when they saw the man that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was, and you will find that God it will be allowed, so there is no exception to this. So Julia becomes a woman who is distinguished by her fasting. She used to love fasting. And in fact, subhanAllah every Hadith about God has something to do with her worship, by the way, so she becomes a righteous worshiper, one of the righteous worshipers of the companions of

00:34:10--> 00:34:47

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the famous Hadith, where we take the ruling that you can't fast Friday alone, Yama Juma, you cannot fast it alone without fasting a day before it or a day after it, unless there's a reason that exists before it. So for example, the day of alpha or a person fast every other day like the day of the Siyam of Dawood Islam, the fasting of David peace be upon him and in fact every other day and it happens to be a Friday otherwise, the prophets lie some prohibits a person from fasting only Friday, and we take this from Hadith

00:34:48--> 00:35:00

from W from God until the Allahu Allah and that the prophets Allah Lawrence, and I'm duckula it here young Jumeirah. We're here sloth Emma, the prophets lie Selim came to her when she was fasting on a day of Friday. So the Prophet

00:35:00--> 00:35:40

Some said to her, Asante amps Did you fast yesterday audit law? She said no, the prophets lie Selim says, To redeem and to sue me, Radha, do you plan to fast tomorrow? She said, No, the prophets lie some said so in that case you break your fast. So we take this ruling from God it'll be a lot of data and a woman who loves to voluntarily fast. We also see a zoot asceticism. Jody, it'll be a low tide and her would not keep possessions in her home. Anything that came into her house went out of her house very quickly. So she used to give away her food or the low tide and her when it came into her homes. Subhan Allah, a common theme that we find in the households of the Prophet slice and this

00:35:40--> 00:36:26

is a woman who was the daughter of one of the most powerful men in the region. And when the food would come into her home, she would immediately give it away and one narration JD about the Allah Tada and he says, the prophets lie some came home, and he looked around the house and there wasn't a single piece of food. So he said, Help me and puram Do we have anything to eat in the home? I said to him Lau Allah rasool Allah Miranda, Natla, Aman Illa, Allah one min Schatten or Clea to melotti Min a sadhaka. So she says that the only thing we have in our homes Subhan Allah the home of the prophets I send them is a bone of a goat that was given a sadaqa by my fried servants. That's all we

00:36:26--> 00:37:08

have is a bone is Allah that is given to us. And she said the prophets lie some eight whatever he could from that bone, and that was panela this is again, the house of the prophets lie Selim and the house of a woman who was one of the most powerful women before Islam. Also the narration from amateur and how to follow the Allahu Taala and who the brother of Judea that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, the very famous narration Mataranka Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Miranda Moti he determine whether the naran well our Abdon well I'ma turn while che and Illa Berlinetta who will be Allah wa sallahu wa Otterburn Jana has sadhaka that one the prophet slicin passed away. He

00:37:08--> 00:37:51

didn't have a single dinar or dyrham, a male or a female servant or anything else to his name, except for his white mule, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and his weapon and a piece of land that he had given us charity to the Wayfarers sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this is narrated by the brother of God, who sees the poverty of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the time of his death, and who says it as a means of praise of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, what Ariba? What act of worship? Is she going to be distinguished by so there's one particular act of worship, that God will be allowed Thailand has going to have that as a scribe to her that is

00:37:52--> 00:37:58

specific, as one of her virtues does anyone know what it is? of the acts of worship?

00:38:00--> 00:38:33

Someone said it a scar, her remembrance of Allah her Vicky Subhanallah you find Hafsa or the Allahu anha. So why am Kawana right Djibouti, right, Islam praised her. A woman who fasts and who prays at night she prays a lot at night Zenodo the Allahu Taala and as we saw, praying at night to the point that Xena worthy Allah Tada, Anna is holding on to a rope to keep herself praying at night, God or the Allahu Taala and how was known to spend the entire day in the thicket of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:38:34--> 00:39:14

This was a woman that loved her that this was a woman that loved her remembrance, to the point that some of the first city when they when they talked about evacuating Allah cathedral was accurate, those who remember Allah frequently from the men and from the women, they mentioned, like the prophets lie some enjoy at the Allahu Taala and imagine the conversations between the prophets lie some in her revolve around vicar. This is a woman that stays in her thicket of Allah subhanaw taala and that becomes distinguished by her thicket. And so one of the most famous ethika that we have one of the most famous remembrances of Allah that we have, is a gift to us from God while the Allahu

00:39:14--> 00:40:00

Taala and or from the Prophets lie some through Judea, although the Allahu Allah and, and so famous narration from a bustle the Allahu Taala and Homer and God and the BIA sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Maharaja Minar India book written heinous ALLAH SubhanA wa here femurs, God Ha, some Raja by the end of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left Judea are the Allahu Taala and in the early morning to make his way towards the lots of the budget and she was worshipping Allah subhanaw taala FIM as Judea. What does that mean in her message? It is actually one of the narrations that the scholar has mentioned as a proof that a person can build what's like a message in their home like you have a

00:40:00--> 00:40:36

corner in your home. That is like your messages and that linguistically, even the companions of the Prophet slicin would refer to it as your messages and there's something psychological about that as well. Right having a particular prayer corner, a particular part of the home that's dedicated for a Salah for prayer and for thicker. It's not like her house was that big, huge rocks were tiny. But she was in her Masjid. So she was in her corner where she would worship Allah subhanaw taala she prayed for budget. And she started to do her vicar. And the prophets lie some came hours later, and she was still sitting in her.

00:40:37--> 00:41:28

Okay, so this is a beautiful testimony to her character and to her vicar. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sees her that way. And he says, Maserati and Hal and Latif Araki Alia, you've been in this place the entire time. You never abandon this position for this entire time. So God has said I've been here the entire time, just been remembering ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada the Prophet slice alum. He's praising that and also Allah say salam gives her a gift. He says that I'm going to give you about our Kelly Matt's four words that I said three times low was enough to be my quality Mundell, young lovers, and that one, those three, those, those four words that I am going to teach

00:41:28--> 00:41:42

you, if you compare them to everything that you just said it will outweigh them, meaning I'm going to teach you a special vicar that will outweigh all of these hours of your thicket that you can keep with you. What is that because

00:41:44--> 00:42:22

Subhan Allah he will be handy he either the Halacha he worried long enough. See he was in a two hour See he want me the other Kalamata Subhan Allah He won't be handy. He added the holiday he worried long enough. See he was in a two hour See he when we did the Kelly naughty Subhan Allah he will be handy he either the hulky he worried on FC he was in a tower she he only died the kinematic this Dicker. Subhan Allah he will be handy for you glorify Allah Spintires perfection. And you praise him, added the hulky in accordance with the number of His creation, how many? How many creations of Allah have existed

00:42:23--> 00:42:33

and will continue to exist? Either the healthy or just take all of the human beings that exist today? Imagine a thicket worth 7 billion.

00:42:34--> 00:43:04

Right? But not just today. And not just human beings, how many billions and billions and billions of the creation of Allah that which is observable and that which has not added the hierarchy he worry about NFC and until Allah is pleased or in accordance with how much Allah is pleased, does Allah Subhana Allah have a limit of vicar, or a limit of being praised? Absolutely not. So in accordance with how many creation Allah azza wa jal has created, that which you know, and that what you don't know, according are an amount of what

00:43:05--> 00:43:50

is to His pleasure. subhanho Tirana was in its outer Sea and the weight of his throne, la kappa like the weight of Allah's throne, was in a two hour see what he does the Kelly Marathi and according to the ink that records his praise subhanho wa taala. What an incredible form of victory. The prophets lie Selim is saying, say this three times and it's equal to your hours of vicar Oh God, and that's a gift to the entire ummah. So this decoder that you make every morning, every night, comes to you through the profit slice, I'm teaching God all the Allahu Tada. And this is her most famous and most prominent narration. And here's the amazing thing. How many Muslims say this is the

00:43:51--> 00:43:55

morning and evening? Jewelry gets the reward every single time.

00:43:56--> 00:44:33

Because the one who guides to something is the light the one who does it, the one who teaches a good gets the reward of everyone that acts upon it. So if this was the only Hadith that she's ever narrated, how many people have praised Allah with this dikkat after her and God Allah, the Allah Allah Allah is the means by which that was converted. Our mother taught us this dua taught us this thicket. And this is a thicket of that we hold very near and dear to our hearts, and we would be foolish to not act upon it, because it was taught to our mother while the Allahu Taala and by the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this is God Allah Allah Tada and her her life

00:44:33--> 00:44:59

after the prophets lie some in during the prophets lie Selim, completely avoided fitna completely avoided conflict Jewry or the Allah Allah did not get involved in anything of conflict. And she lived through all of the major fitsum so she lived through the assassination of Earth mammal, the Allah Tala animal she lived through the fitna of the Hadith. She lived through the assassination of Satan that evil the Allahu Taala and she lived through all of that

00:45:00--> 00:45:40

Jewry did not get involved in anything of conflict in anything of fitna and anything that had to do with the the speaking of this group or that group. She was someone that was to herself and she's the embodiment of those who remember Allah subhana wa Tada what either Hi Pablo manager How you doing? Ocado, Salama and ignores all foolishness now because her her life is similar to Sofia law, the law and how Sofia law the law I know we'll talk about next week as someone who is going to be scorned frequently, or be put down because of her status. Right at the end of the day you came into the life of the prophet saw Selim as a captive right so who are you? So the one you'll notice that anytime

00:45:40--> 00:45:56

Sophia or God are put down, they come to the prophesy somebody makes them feel better, he puts a positive spin on it. So you're gonna see this frequently in the life of Sophia with the low tide. And so one of the wives of the Prophet SAW salem said to God, just out of anger, that you're nothing but a slave girl.

00:45:57--> 00:46:34

Right? So she goes to the Prophet sites and I'm and she's hurt by that comment. Little soulless ly Salam said but if you think about it, you have the highest Maha you had the highest dowry, because the seven years that were for your ransom two tablets were higher than the MaHA are higher than that which was given to any of the wives of the prophets lie some so she left happy, right? Prophets lie some found a way to comfort her when she was scorned because again, she was looked down upon in that regard. She died all the Allahu Taala and 56 years after the hijra, after a life of vicar of Allah subhanaw taala her only narration Subhan Allah come through as you settle the law and through

00:46:34--> 00:47:11

Abdullah blah blah so the Allahu Anhu Ummah because of the loved one about so the Allah and Houma would go to again the companions and ask them about their recollections with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she is like all of our mothers, a wife of the Prophet sighs I'm in Jannah May Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with their mother God or the Allahu Taala and her and all of our mothers the wives of the Prophet SAW Salem and his family and his companions Allahumma Amin Zachman, la Hydra and Sharla Tirana we'll go ahead and take questions. And next week we'll cover Sophia or the loved one. So we'll take about five to 10 minutes maximum of questions and then we'll break for

00:47:11--> 00:47:12

the event of a show.

00:47:13--> 00:47:14

Any questions?

00:47:15--> 00:47:16


00:47:19--> 00:47:20

I can't hear you

00:47:25--> 00:47:39

which surah was just revealed. So certain mafia cone obviously is where you find some that certain mafia coin and also sorted Tober comes later on as most detailed Surah about the hypocrites and certain zap as well.

00:47:40--> 00:48:14

And so to know, because the slander of a shot of the Allahu Taala and so you have common a common recurring theme about them on Africa and about the hypocrites that continues to come forth. And the prophets lie some still did not kill him. Subhan Allah all of this, and the prophets lie some did not kill him. Though the prophets lie some had every right to because he verbalized at this point, his intention to overthrow the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the prophets like Selim, literally talked to his son out of killing him because his son wanted to kill him at the border of Medina. When he got back from Bentonville started, his son was waiting for him to kill him. And the

00:48:14--> 00:48:16

Prophet slicin did not let that happen

00:48:24--> 00:48:24

was he What

00:48:26--> 00:48:31

was he eating from sadaqa Rasul Allah say some did not use to eat from a sadaqa

00:48:32--> 00:48:52

so this particular narration is one that I have to I have to look into insha Allah answer that question next week actually Johnson but the prophets like some we know that will still si some did not use the from Southern that's a good question in Showalter. I don't want to answer it preemptively. Without going into the shadow of inshallah I actually saw that section and I didn't have time to go into it in the shadow of the Hadith. Exactly luckily

00:48:54--> 00:48:55

one of you first

00:49:02--> 00:49:10

so the God accepts Islam before or after she married the prophets like Selim, the implication is before she married the Prophet size seven, she had already embraced the sun.

00:49:12--> 00:49:25

Judea is a name that refers to it's like a little a little girl. So obviously, you know, when the way that the scholars and I should have mentioned this actually in the lecture, the way that the linguists describe it is that

00:49:26--> 00:49:33

it's referring to the initial beauty that you know, a woman who doesn't wear off in her beauty because it's referring to her youth so it's almost like speaking to endless youth.

00:49:36--> 00:49:38

Someone from the brothers Yeah.

00:49:43--> 00:49:54

Could put into profits, send them to another person and just go to maybe another house or one of his wives and eat something else or was that just the nature of the profit center? So great question. I don't know.

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

You know, look, the prophets lie somewhere.

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

Go nights with no food.

00:50:03--> 00:50:04


00:50:05--> 00:50:12

you know Subhanallah you see this and it's really profound about our prophets lie some because sometimes it gives you another layer of very bad of his worship.

00:50:14--> 00:50:31

That if a person decides to voluntarily fast because they haven't had anything to eat during the day, then they can just make the NIA for that to be a day of fasting when it comes to a no often. And it was frequent that the prophets lie some would find nothing to eat. And the prophets lie some would say in the salon, I'm just gonna fast today.

00:50:33--> 00:50:33

What's that?

00:50:35--> 00:50:35


00:50:37--> 00:50:53

know? No, not on not on the day of Friday, because again, the day of Friday wouldn't be prohibited and the profit slice I mentioned that even if you have to eat from the bark of a tree to break your fascination break your fast if it's a Friday, or if it's a Saturday, the days that it's prohibited to fast in isolation, a lot of time.

00:50:56--> 00:51:01

sister had a question. Yes, go ahead. You had a question? Right. Did you get your question answered? Yeah.

00:51:07--> 00:51:07


00:51:08--> 00:51:12

Oh, you don't have a question anymore. Okay, any sisters have a question? Yes.

00:51:18--> 00:51:20

Because she would have been

00:51:22--> 00:51:22

someone who lost

00:51:24--> 00:51:24

a loved one.

00:51:37--> 00:52:11

It shows you so the question is, you know, look, if a person loves the material things of this world, obviously, and likes to spoil themselves to an extent how do we reconcile that with these narrations? It shows you that when people came into the presence of the prophets like Selim, they didn't want anything of this world anymore. That's the impact that he had on you sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that if you encountered him, I mean, look at most of capital, the Allahu Tada, animal, right? Look at these companions that came into his presence. And basically, now just didn't want it anymore. Right? Because the prophets lie Selim had opened their eyes and open their hearts to

00:52:11--> 00:52:48

something that was far greater than that. So it's something to look at and to admire. And, of course, there's no doubt that the more that your appetite for the Africa grows, your appetite for this dunya is going to diminish. That's a fact. Right? Now, enjoy the hell out of this world. But don't be consumed by the hell out of this world, you consume the hell out of this world, don't be consumed by the hell out of this world, right? So we look at these great companions and we take a lesson of how they connected themselves to Allah's parents on the hereafter, despite whatever their circumstances were before they came into Islam

00:52:52--> 00:53:08

through for them human, so Allah and salam used to send the harvest to some places to spread the message of Islam and the tablet. How did this How does the tablet at that time? How can we how should we do tablet at this time? And can you give us some

00:53:10--> 00:53:20

tips to start and proceed our tablet journey to end up in dimension? Alright, so how do you get to agenda? You watch the Ramadan series?

00:53:23--> 00:54:09

So answer the last portion. First, the the other portion, there's a wonderful article that's written out you have teen called is jihad, a conquest ideology. It's written by a Shabbat Alia Havdalah. To Allah from the UK, it's a very powerful academic article where he basically goes through the conditions by which those things took place, or before the prophets lie, some attack to people, the options that were given. And also, you know, how the prophets lie. Some dealt with non hostile populations, populations that were not hostile. So the prophets I send them said, leave the Turks so long as they leave you. And similar narrations. So the idea of not infringing upon a population

00:54:09--> 00:54:38

that's not hostile, but still spreading Islam. And so the idea is that the means of Islam or the message of Islam should spread throughout the world unhindered, the data which should spread unhindered and there was a unique way in which the Prophet slice dealt with every single population but I'll recommend the article because it's a powerful article is do you have the conquest ideology that breaks down every single category will all turn on sha Allah Tada, I think, is the extra time by the way. I've done a very sharp no more than

00:54:40--> 00:54:53

one minute Okay, so last question. So there were many like narrations of bicycle Viola and her of her feeling like jealous so does can jealousy have like a positive connotation to it? You know,

00:54:54--> 00:54:59

I think that one of the things that we love about each other the low on her she tells us about how she's feeling

00:55:00--> 00:55:36

She doesn't conceal these things. And that's why I say Subhan Allah the silliness of those that will try to mock, you settle the law and her with her own narration. She's a mom who's telling you her story of how she felt in these situations. So she could have completely left that part out of the narration. But she made it a point to say *ery to her, I hated her. There's absolutely no way around that. Right. However, what you learn is the actual the law on who did not wronged her. She didn't do voting towards her. But she mentioned the times that she lost her temper or that jealousy overtook her. So it's not praiseworthy that you should have the law on her, for example, broke the
