00:03:56--> 00:03:58

Come on I want to live in a castle

00:04:00--> 00:04:44

spinarak and Mr Heyman hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam while I was sitting in kitty Marina and he will be at marine. So Hamdi Lux nice to see the messages fuller tonight May Allah subhanaw taala gather as always upon good allow us to be amongst those upon whom the angels descend with Allah's mercy, and upon whom the tranquility this world descends and acceptance ascends to Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanaw taala writes us down amongst those people agenda, Allah I mean, your brothers and sisters throughout this series of the firsts, there are certain names that are well known to the Muslims. And we sought to go deeper into those names and into the true

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

contributions of those noble people and the status that they have with Allah and the Messenger of Allah why he was one of them was undoubtedly Hamza, all the alongside on who everyone knows the name of Hamza, it is common amongst the Muslims.

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

His story, at least there are certain flash points from his story that are known. But then you come to some other names from a sub opponent alone. And these are the ones that excite me the most, that there really isn't much known about them, their names might be known, and there might be something that's associated with them. But there really isn't a particular story that you can recall or anything prominent about that person that you could recall, despite their status. So this person that we are covering today is undoubtedly one of those names on someone's hand, Allah who I hope by the end of this inshallah you're going to have a deep love and affection for because this was a

00:05:42--> 00:06:26

person who you don't just have a few snapshots in the Seattle about. This is a person who is deeply involved in the life of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And throughout the era of Washington, he has major contributions. And it's not hard to find them, although he is not regularly remembered amongst the Muslims. And so there are a few ideas. I'll start off with some of them. In fact, we've already mentioned the narration of Yvan Massoud or the alongside Anvil, where he said that the first people to declare their Islam publicly were seven people. The first seven people that were out there saying that they were Muslim, that declared their Islam openly were seven people. Can you all give

00:06:26--> 00:06:33

me some names? Who do you think is the first? How about also law civil law? how it goes, hello? That's one second.

00:06:35--> 00:06:37

Not in this particular Hadeeth

00:06:39--> 00:06:54

not in this particular narration. Someone mentioned him he's he's above bechamel the Allahu taala and, and then I heard it here are mom and his mother sumiya. And then

00:06:55--> 00:06:56

who else do you guys think about?

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

It is not mentioned in this particular narration.

00:07:02--> 00:07:05

So hey, Bella, and the cadet.

00:07:06--> 00:07:51

Okay, Miss Ludo, the Allahu taala. And he says that there are seven people that first declared their Islam publicly Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abubakar Amar and his mother Sylvania, sohei, Bella and Nick Sadat. And some of the understandings of this of course, as we've talked about, that sometimes these narrations mentioned a name here, but they don't mention a name here is that these are people who were publicly persecuted for their Islam. Right, their Islam was very well known to the people and they faced consequences, because their Islam was well known to the people. Out of all of those names, the name that you probably cannot recall a single incident about, is that right? You

00:07:51--> 00:08:19

know about So hey, you know, about Amar, you know, about, these are names that come to mind pretty easily. Another narration from sorry, that will cost you a lot of time. He said that the idea that was revealed what a telco did, Lavina you're the owner of the home belladati Well, actually, you re do not watch her, do not do away with those Do not turn away from those who invoke their Lord morning and evening seeking the pleasure of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:08:20--> 00:09:06

He said that this verse was revealed, obviously, the context of it is that some of the elites have always told the profit slice of them to get rid of certain people around him. And then maybe we'll consider being around you. But it's the presidents of the slaves and these low people that make it unbearable for us to consider even being in your presence, sizable, the law of Thailand who says that this verse was revealed about six of us, me in Massoud, so hey, Ma, Bilal, and make that. So make that once again in the ranks of sohei, amar bilad, this is actually a common occurrence. But amongst those who are considered mustafina, who were considered amongst the weak and the downtrodden

00:09:06--> 00:09:49

of society, that accepted Islam very early on, even though they had the most to lose by becoming Muslim. Now, we're going to be talking about dad bless what, what the Allahu taala. And Whoa, and let's first start off by saying that his father is actually not an S word, which is why if you go to Google and you search element that you'll see, and you'll see Ibn s words, and I'll talk about why dad is from Yemen. Okay, the Yemenis in the crowd are supposed to go you know, whoo, like it's us, Yemen, a beloved people to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam who the prophets lie Selim mentioned the fifth element. We just lost our beloved brother thought of him Qadri, Brahim a whole lot to Allah,

00:09:49--> 00:10:00

who was everything that you'd want to see in the, in the characteristics of a person of Yemen, the good character of the people of Yemen, the fitrah, the good nature of the people of Yemen. So you have people that

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

came from Yemen, without even being called right. There are famous stories about people in Yemen that embraced Islam very early on. My dad was from Yemen. He's from how the remote in Yemen. And

00:10:13--> 00:10:32

he ended up in Mecca under some very peculiar circumstances. He was amongst his tribesmen, and he was a big man, and I'm gonna talk about his physical features in a bit. And while he was in Yemen, he got into a fight with one of his tribesmen. And in the midst of fighting with one of his tribesmen, he accidentally killed the man.

00:10:34--> 00:10:42

And after accidentally killing the man from his own tribe, in Yemen, he got so scared of being caught that he ran away to Mecca.

00:10:43--> 00:10:53

So he actually came to Mecca. And the dad ignore it when he came to Mecca, seeking protection from anyone in Mecca that would give it to him.

00:10:54--> 00:11:35

So he comes to Makkah, this is before Islam, of course, and he goes to the different tribes, and he says, who will give their brother from Yemen protection. So he goes to Venezuela, which was the tribe of Saudi that will the Allahu anhu, and a man by the name of a sled gives him protection. his actual name was an S, what if we have the host, Al Kindi Alaska, your hosts al Kindi like yeah, Ruth, one of the idols mentioned, from the people of New Heidi's that I'm an expert in the idea or al Kindi he gives with data protection. And metadata ends up being one of those was protected by federal law, particularly an Escalade. And an S would get so close to MC that that eventually he

00:11:35--> 00:11:50

adopts him as his son. So he says, From now on, you're no longer just the head, if you're no longer just someone who's protected by my tribe, you are my son. So they took him to the central place, of course, around the Canada, and he announced that this man that is now no longer

00:11:51--> 00:12:28

He is my son that in the last month, so that's why you'll find the confusion in his name because he had his actual father in Yemen. And then the man who adopted him in Makkah after he fled Yemen, after that conflict that he had with his fellow tribesmen. Now, what was his physical appearance like Now, sometimes with the Sahaba, you don't find much information about their physical appearance, it's actually really interesting because sometimes we have a long bio, but very few details about their physical appearance. Sometimes they have a very short bio, and then a lot of details about their physical appearance, right, which just shows you that the biographers focused on

00:12:28--> 00:13:21

different things. But dad had a very prominent physical appearance. Okay, so the way he's described, everything about my dad stood out physically, everything about him stood out, he was extremely tall. He was extremely muscular. He had a big belly or leemon button, he had a whole lot of hair, he was extremely dark, like a shining black color, his skin was extremely dark, his beard, he used to dye it blonde, his eyes were extremely big and round, and his nose was very prominent. So you look at him and use the saw an extremely unique person and imposing physical appearance that made him stand out wherever he was. Okay, so that's the physical description of animals that are the Allahu Tada.

00:13:22--> 00:14:08

And, of course, the circumstances by which he became and looked at us what in Mecca. Now, how does he become Muslim, we don't have the exact details about when he took Shahada and how he took Shahada. All we know is that he is one of those people that heard about the profit slice on them and immediately went to him before.an outcome was even established. So as soon as he heard about the profit slice on them, either through the rumors in Mecca, or through his fellow brothers, bidda, and sohei. And among those that belong to that class, because we know that people in Mecca socialized amongst classes, right, so that even though he was technically the son of an S word, he also belong

00:14:08--> 00:14:39

to a lower class, he never would really be considered amongst the elite in Mecca. So those are the people that he socialized with. He found out about the profit slice of them, he went to the profit slice on them. And he immediately embraced Islam. And he kept his Islam secret for a bit because he was, you know, really vulnerable for multiple reasons. One of them is that he has no tribe to protect him. The other one is that his father who adopted him, might undo the contract and disowned him basically, and leave him even more vulnerable than he already is.

00:14:40--> 00:15:00

Lo and behold, when his father who adopted him and us with finds out that he has become Muslim, he tortures him publicly and drags him and curses him and spits on him in front of the public. So the humiliation now of the person that took me and protected me and he

00:15:00--> 00:15:40

spitting on me publicly. He is disowning me he's calling me a bad omen a curse in society someone who brought nothing but horror horror, to my household to my family. And that's why I've been this rude little the Allahu anhu continues in that narration. He says the seven people who first publicly expressed their Islam, but soon lost by Salam Abubakar Ahmad, his mother selenia. So hey began and metadata. He said Allah protected the prophets of Allah hiding was sudden through a bulldog. And Allah protected apobec ldlr under through his tribe, I will Beckett was not beaten publicly. Right, they would beat him privately. We've already established this because he was considered amongst the

00:15:40--> 00:15:51

nobles. He says, As for the other five core race would force them to wear these large coats of iron, and they would drag them under the hot sun and they would beat them routinely.

00:15:52--> 00:16:30

So he was amongst this group of five. And that's where the context of this narration of urban Missoula, Idaho comes from. And I want you to remember this, in a later conversation that dad has with the tambourine like you think that was easy for the five of us to be dragged. And we were known as the five that would be tortured by the likes of Abuja, and the powerful ones from the tribes, each person comes and takes a turn, and would have been most newsworthy alongside it points out, is that you didn't even need to be like a master to them, or from a certain tribe to beat them. If you were having a bad day, and you were angry and raging, and you saw these five people in public, you

00:16:30--> 00:17:11

would just go and take your frustration and beat on them like punching bags. Submit that said I suffered the worst of persecution in the early days of Islam alongside Bilal. And so hey, Ben Amar, and Hubbard and these types. And during that time, all they did was they spent their time around the profit slice alum, trying to learn as much as they could. And they endured patiently the persecution that came their way they really couldn't do anything. These were not a people that were in a position to do anything for Islam in the early days except to struggle for it. And then we find that he is amongst those that made Hitler to Abyssinia to have a shot to escape persecution. And then he

00:17:11--> 00:17:53

would make his right to Medina as well. And so we don't have stories about anything regarding that in Mecca. All we know is he's from those illustrious companions who made the Hitler twice, once to Abyssinia and then to El Medina, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made him a brother in Medina with a man by the name of Jabbar even while the Allahu taala and hope from the unsub Jabbar even saw now a narration from the Prophet slice on them from blade or the Allah tada and that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in the Lucha Iser, Mr. Ronnie, we have the orbera barani and who and who you have the hopes Pamela, Allah commanded me to love for people and Allah told me

00:17:53--> 00:17:56

that he loves these four people. And he mentioned

00:17:57--> 00:18:38

it and met dad, abou them. And Sandman, again, talk about illustrious company, I'd eat all the Allahu tada and who will double the Allahu taala. And who said mama the Allahu anhu and ultimate dad, or the Allahu taala. And now we start to get into the stories about that, and some of them are very beautiful and powerful stories. One of them is the story of his marriage, which shows you again how the Prophet sly son was breaking traditions of jeopardy of ignorance. One time and dad was sitting and Magneto for the amount of time who was there and then that dad was known to be a jokester. He used to joke a lot. He had very heavy jokes and we have the most famous incident

00:18:38--> 00:19:00

between him and the Prophet slice Adam has a major joke from within. So I'm the head of Nero for the Allahu taala and who we know Mashallah always set himself up came to Medina, right? Within a week, figured the soup out became a merchant, a tradesman got married, had the first wedding in Medina, something that tells them that, hey, you know, why don't you get married?

00:19:01--> 00:19:04

And that says, that's a great idea. How about you married me, your daughter.

00:19:06--> 00:19:13

So whether it was the way he said it to him, or the circumstances of it, didn't like that he got up and he went home.

00:19:14--> 00:19:31

Right? He didn't like the way that God said that Allah knows why it's not clear from the incident. But what is clear, is that my dad was upset that a black man got up about the amount of time and walked away from him like Sahaba had these types of arguments sometimes in these types of incidents, right? They always went back to the profit slicer.

00:19:32--> 00:19:59

So he went to the profit slice on them upset he said, You know, I'm gonna offset Why don't you get married? Sold? I see a lot of young people here like feel vindicated. Like all these people that come up to us and say, What are you going to get married? Like, leave me alone? Right. Like that said, You know what? Fine, you want me to get married, married to your daughter. That's how you respond to that amount of No, please don't do that to anyone here. I don't want any fights in the message. I'm not the profit slice on them. Okay. So if you guys break out into a fight, I can

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

solve that for you. But he goes to the profit slice the beauty of the profit slice of

00:20:06--> 00:20:12

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said you know what? How about you be my relative

00:20:14--> 00:20:29

and that that's how he understood. His daughters all married the profit slice I'm at that point has married off all of his daughters so he doesn't have a daughter to give him so he said Come with me. I'm gonna marry you to my cousin so that we can be in loss.

00:20:30--> 00:21:14

So the profit slice I'm took him to a woman by the name of Dubai, Dubai, didn't they ZWave ibn Abdullah polyp mobilya binte zubayr. Even Abdulmutallab, the cousin of the Prophet sallallahu it was on the first cousin of the Prophet slice Allah and she was a woman of status a woman of beauty, a woman of great faith, great intellect a person that would be sought out or Sula, sly some takes that with him and the prophets lie some goes to the house of doula and proposes marriage on his behalf and he makes that relationship happen submit that became this is the story actually of how little the A lot of times got married the prophets wives on didn't start to think oh, Banu Hashim and you

00:21:14--> 00:21:16

know, we got to consider this and consider that and

00:21:17--> 00:21:58

you know, that works great for other people. This was just natural instinct for the prophets of Allah and he was saying, you know what, come with me I'm going to get you married to my cousin, and we can be in laws married her married him to one of the most noble women in Medina at the time. And in fact, the very famous hadith of what to Satan has four sisters who go to Hajj and Umrah if they're unable to perform their Hajj and Umrah for reasons outside of their of their ability so something happens to them and they're unable to perform the the ombre or the hedge due to their harbor they have to stop. This is the Hadith actually of bulbar asking the Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:21:58--> 00:22:38

wa sallam saying yes to Allah I'm sick. I don't know if I'm going to be able to complete the Hajj I don't know if I can actually go out so hurt that we're going out with the prophets of Allah how it was Salaam and the prophets lie some told her to perform the Hajj and said go out with the intention to complete the Hajj and say as you are making the intention that you know or put the stipulation Allah humma ma Hindi hazlehead esterni Allah Henley henly hate to have destiny that Oh Allah I will finish my job at the place that you stopped me. So I will discontinue my Islam wherever you stop me if I'm unable to perform my hydrobiologia so this is what we teach in the fifth of Hajj and I'm

00:22:38--> 00:23:04

gonna we learned this actually from the wife up and that is what what the allotted time now what is his particular status with the profit slice I'm beyond the love that the profit slice them has for him the profit slice I'm saying that Allah loves him that Allah commanded us to love him. He took part in all of the major battles with the profit slice. And he is particularly noted for his stance in bearish embedded

00:23:05--> 00:23:50

audio the whole time, he says one that can come in fairly soon. yoma bedridden later on macdaddy Bill Smith or the law of Toronto, there was only one horseman on our side in the Battle of Bethel and that was a McDonald Hello Toronto. Remember, the Muslims were not ready for an all out battle. They got sucked into it baited into a battle, as they were just attacking a caravan that had stolen their goods. The mushrikeen, on the other hand, had 10s hundreds of horses, right? The Muslims didn't have any horses with them. They had one horse and that dad was the only person on a horse on the day of Bethel. And so the Sahaba used to call him the firt the first horseman FISA beat Illa is

00:23:50--> 00:24:32

the first person to ride a horse in the path of Allah subhana wa tada in this battle of bedridden that's obviously because of his skill on a horse in particular, and the way that he was able to command the army so the profit slice and put him in charge of the left flank of the battle. But it wasn't just his physical strength. It was also the way he boosted the morale of the Muslims remember saludable the longtime police doesn't this isn't a body. He says Sha hit two minute dad Masada lan akuna Sahiba who have not read it he he says that I witnessed from the data or the Allah tala advo a scene which would have been dear to me than anything had I been that person in that particular

00:24:32--> 00:25:00

scene. He said he came to the Prophet slice of an obeah sama who it was, who he came, he came to the prophet SAW someone the Prophet slicin was telling us that we would have to fight the polytheists What is he talking about? When the Muslims knew what was coming to them better that they were actually going to face the whole army. That was a moment where they could have froze and said, You know what, let's run away to Medina and get out of here. Let's hurry up and flee and

00:25:00--> 00:25:40

Avoid the wrath of the machine, the disbelievers from Mecca. And that moment, you know is a crucial moment who's going to say what first right when the prophets lie some says you know what, let's fight them. At that moment someone statement could break the morale of the Muslims or someone could make the morale of the Muslims silvan Massoud on the low tide and who says as soon as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that he said that stood up and that had a loud voice, a booming voice, everything about him. spalla was prominence. You looked at him he spoke everything prominence. So his voice was booming. So he stood up, and he said, Yasuda Allah Lana Polo came upon

00:25:40--> 00:26:21

upon Moosa, Antara buka Tila jasola. We're not those people like the people of Musa alayhis salaam who told Moosa and he said, You and your Lord go forth and fight when I can. No, no Katya. I'm Yamini kawaramachi Maddy Cabeza de cocofax Fuck. But we will fight on the right of you and the left of you and in front of you and behind you. We have you from all directions, yada, Silla, we're not going to tell you go forth and fight and leave you back. And when he did that, a bit of a silly little yellow tide and who said for at nebia sallallahu wasallam. Who was someone who is I looked at the profits license face and his face became so bright with joy and happiness, you could see how

00:26:21--> 00:26:56

pleased the prophets lie Selim was with with Daniel de la Thailand. And the way the Sahaba. You know, if you're in that gathering, then and you heard that say that you're like, yeah, you're right. We're not the people of most, we're not betting it's like, we're not, no, we're gonna stand up and fight with you, yada sutala we're going with you yelling Subala seven, Miss rudl de la Andrew said the way that he made the profit slice of smile. And the profits I'm always smiled at his thought was done, but the happiness he brought to his face, I wish that could have been looked at that day. I wish I could have been the person that brought that to the Prophet sites. And so once the battle

00:26:56--> 00:27:04

went forward, and that was one of the heroes of Reddit, they said in every direction, you look, you saw the melodica. And you saw that

00:27:05--> 00:27:45

you saw the angels, and you saw the horse of lift that in the Battle of better every direction you looked, he was with his horse. And he was fighting feet submitted in the Battle of that, because he was skilled in many different ways. And that was also one of the archers, however, he was not one of the archers that came down. Remember, some of the archers came down, some of them stayed on the mountain. So he was one of those who held his position, even after most of them had come down in the battle, which left them in a particular situation. However, this is the most famous incident of McDonald's. And it is the most beautiful incident of MIT that actually one of the most beloved

00:27:45--> 00:28:06

instance about the profits on the left, it was suddenly when you when when you really want to know the character of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, with his companions. And in fact, if you go to the books of Sierra, and they say, the incidence of that, that they're talking about the incident, I'm about to say to you. So if no other incident is mentioned about him in the books, this is the one that will be mentioned about

00:28:07--> 00:28:52

the outside, and he says that there was a date that I was with two of my companions. And he said we were so hungry, that we were starting to lose our vision and our hearing Allah, a person of that stature, who is of that seniority, and this is the struggling in Medina. He said, we were so hungry, we started to lose our vision and to lose our hearing. So he said, we presented our situations to the Sahaba. But they were not capable of hosting us either people were struggling at that time. So it was during a time of hardship. And Allah knows maybe it was around the time of hubdoc or something else but a time of hardship. So no one hosted us. And the hunger was getting to us and

00:28:52--> 00:29:08

this was the point where we were most desperate. Then the profit side some sauce. So the profit slice some picked up the three of us, and he told us to follow him. So he took us a Lala heart he was selling to one of his one of his rooms.

00:29:09--> 00:29:53

And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. He only had at that point three goats and from those three goats, all of the family of the Prophet slice alum would drink and that would be the only provision that they had. So the prophets lie, some had no bread, he had no meat, he had no dates at that time. All he had was the milk that would come from these three goats. So the prophet SAW Allah how it was salam, he told me that he said that. He said, go ahead and milk these three goats and get whatever you can for them for you and your companions and the Prophet slice of themselves about the exam which led policemen This is the important part. So let's I'm sorry, I'm starving to so profit slice

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

I'm told me that milk the others have all three goats, one for each of you, and then save something for me.

00:30:00--> 00:30:39

And I'll be right back. Alright, somebody that has clear instructions, milk, the others good enough for you and your two companions, and one for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So he said the Prophet slice Allah gave me that order. He said, I did that I milked the others. I divided whatever I was able to get from the goats into four, I gave to my two companions. I took one cup, I covered it for the profit slice them. So when the profit slice on gets home, the profit slice, I'm gonna be able to drink from it. And I drank my share. He said, that what ended up happening, my two companions drink, I drink, they went to sleep, I was still hungry.

00:30:40--> 00:30:45

So he said it didn't suffice me. So basically, he said, the shake bomb came to me.

00:30:46--> 00:30:48

And I'm looking at the portion I took for the profit slice on them.

00:30:50--> 00:30:52

And that cup of milk looks so good.

00:30:53--> 00:31:29

This is the man who stood up in bedded, right, who got tortured in Mecca stood up and bothered about Subhanallah what hunger does to a person, right? He's like, I was staring at that cup that I prepared for the Prophet, slice Allah. And he said, the shape on came to me. And he actually starts to tell us in this narration, what the shape mon started to tell him as an excuse, he said, that the Satan came to me. And I started to talk to myself rather than the B. So I saw the model of the Bible and saw, you know, it may be the the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed by one of the houses of the unsought and surely they would have given him some food. So he's been out for a long time. So

00:31:29--> 00:31:32

I'm sure if someone gave the profit side, some something to drink something to eat.

00:31:33--> 00:31:51

So he said, I'm sitting there, and I'm looking at and he said, the profit slice, I was taking a long time, I'm not falling asleep. I'm hungry. So eventually I went and I said, bissman Nah, I drink that cup of milk. The one that I saved for the profit slice. I put it down. He said, I laid down and he said, the shavon came to me and said, Matthew,

00:31:52--> 00:31:53

what did you do?

00:31:55--> 00:32:30

He said, He's giving us the way to say fun does was last to a person. He said, You are destroyed. The prophets lie, some is going to come back and he's going to find that you disobeyed him, and that you drink from his milk, you might as well flee from the community right now before he catches you, and he kills you. So all these thoughts are going through the the brain of McDonald's, what is lasala slice I'm going to do to me. So he said, then the profit slice on came home. And I was laying down in the room. And clearly from the narration, there were no women in this in this particular room, it was just those three companions. And he said that the prophet SAW someone he used to come

00:32:30--> 00:32:48

into a room and adapt in the business and one of the mannerisms of the prophets lights on he said he would greet the home with a voice that was audible enough that the one who was awake would hear him and the one who was sleeping would not wake up. Like the profit slice on did not come in and say Santa Monica, wake everybody up.

00:32:49--> 00:33:24

He would wake he would say Santa Monica, whoever was there who was already awake, heard him, whoever was sleeping was stay sleeping. So he said the profit slice and came in. He said, Santa Monica, and my other two companions were sleeping. And I was under the blanket and he said, I was such a big man that the blanket could barely Cover me and I'm looking at the profit slice. I'm like, yeah, Allah, I'm in trouble. So he said, the profit slice on them, looked at us. He pretended like he was sleeping. He's kind of looking at him. And he said them the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam started to pray. And he said, he performed the law for a while.

00:33:25--> 00:33:29

And then once the Prophet slicin finished the law, he looked at the cup.

00:33:30--> 00:33:57

The cup was empty. That said, I'm in trouble now. He's about to make drought against me. Because the prophets lie. Some raised his hands. So you imagine he looked at the cup. The cup was empty. He said the prophets lie some raised his hands. And he said, I'm This is it for me, Halas I'm done. And then he says the Prophet slice I'm sorry, Allah hung up for him and Amani was the man sacani.

00:33:58--> 00:34:35

Allah feed the one who feeds me and give drink to the one who gives me drink. So that says, Oh, my God, an opportunity. This whole situation just changed so much. That said, I jumped up. So I took a knife, and I went towards the goats with my knife. Like, I need to hurry up and feed the prophets lie, some of them are due and then he said, then I was about to slaughter the goats. And I realized why would I slaughter the goats if we're taking milk from the goats, and that's all that we have. So if I slaughter them, then the meat is gonna, you know, we'll use the meat but then we won't have the milk of the goats anymore. And then he said, and just as I was about to do that, he said that the

00:34:35--> 00:34:59

others of the goats were all full panela as if no one milked any of the goats ever before. I found all three of the goats had full otters. So he said I took bucket after bucket gallon after gallon I milk the goats and milk the goats and milk the goats. And he said, I came back to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam with these gallons of milk, so proud, right. So happy. So excited. I know

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

I'm gonna get the opposite of what I thought I was gonna get I'm going to get the job of the profit slice on him he said so the profit slice and finished the salon maybe it was his witted or some other salon he turned around the profit slice and did not ask why was my cup empty before but that says jasola here's the milk so he said I put the milk fourth to the profit slice on the other two companions remain sleeping by the way right? I put the milk fourth he said the profit slice I'm drinking the profit slice I'm told me drink so he said so I drank and I drank to my Phil and I passed it back to the profit slice on the profit slice I'm drink more milk and the profit slice I'm

00:35:34--> 00:35:42

said to me go ahead and drink and then but that will be a lot of data and who said then I burst out laughing.

00:35:43--> 00:35:49

He said the hc two had to suffer to another hurry. I laughed so hard I fell on my back.

00:35:50--> 00:36:02

And the province lies on is looking at me like what is going on with this person? So he said the last item is looking at the last item says if this article that is just one of your jokes I'll make that

00:36:03--> 00:36:38

What did you do? Because he was known to joke remember is this one of your antics? What did you pull here on with that and But that can't collect himself. He said I'm on my back laughing up this entire situation. So he said I told the profit slice on everything that happened and told us the loss I admitted to the profit slice on what I did. And I admitted to the profit slice on how I felt when I heard his alarm off. I mean autonomy was payments are tiny, right? I got the answer to the to the data. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he smiled and he said this is only from the mercy of Allah. And he said, Now wake up your two companions so they can drink from milk as well. So

00:36:38--> 00:37:17

Subhana Allah at that point with that said, there was so much milk, I could wake them up. And I did not care who would drink from it at that point, I got the reward from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this is Pamela considered this is known as the incident of Madame or the Allahu taala. And with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, the most famous incident with the messenger, it is salatu salam, which shows us so much about that, as well as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and the mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada, right. And the way shikon tries to make a person despair, like look that says I could have been doomed, I thought I was done, I could have I thought to get up and just run

00:37:17--> 00:37:51

away from the profit slice. But instead, look how Allah subhanaw taala opened the door for and looked at all of the Allahu taala and, and but that narrated some of the some of the ways that the Prophet slicin performed these miracles in many different situations with the full cut out with the poor people, in which he mentioned that in one of the situations I was with 10 people that included the Prophet slice, and we had one goat that barely produced milk and the profit slice produced from that goat, enough milk that all of us were able to drink in groups of 10 and many other narrations of the sorts.

00:37:52--> 00:38:29

The profit slice, I'm continued to choose McDonald's, Thailand was a leader in many different expeditions. As a panela one of the things that we find is that my dad did not like the way that people treated their leaders, and he feared that it would mess with his floss with his sincerity. So he actually asked the prophets lysozyme to never put him in a position of leadership again, because he was worried about his knee, he was worried about his intention being compromised in the process, and he would not even be an Imam in Salah he wouldn't even lead the people in prayer because of how much he feared for his intentions. After he saw the way that the Sahaba were starting to put people

00:38:29--> 00:38:56

on a pedestal as they were leaders very unique personalities. panela another incident that happened famous incident you may have heard the Hadith where the Prophet slicin him said that if someone if these flatterers people that flatter you people not that say thank you and that's a nice thing to do you know people that overpraise you and flatter you the same people that will back by you behind your back Will you know flatter you in front of you the prophets lie Some said when these types of people come to you throw dirt on them like Get away from me right

00:38:57--> 00:39:15

and there is a literal parts of that but of course it's more of just like I don't want to hear this. Just shun that don't don't let people go overboard with you show them some displeasure in your face. So show them that you're not that you're not okay with it. So that that'll be alongside Ron who was once with Earth nominal the a lot of time.

00:39:16--> 00:39:31

And one of these people came to earth modeled the alongside him when he started to praise him and praise Him and praise Him and flatter and flatter and flatter him so much that got so sick of him he wouldn't he grabbed some pebbles. And then he went and he sat right in front of the man on his knees and he started to throw the pebbles up

00:39:33--> 00:39:34

as if he was one of the Jamal rocks

00:39:35--> 00:39:59

and it's not all the law and was that and I sat looking at that what are you doing on that? He said look the profit slice I'm sad when you see these people that shower this flattery on you and preys on you. Then throw dust on them right like send them away these people are no good. So that was the character of Nick that while the Allahu taala and who and when the verse of Tibet he by the way were the last panel Tata mentioned which is of course applied most to say there will be a lot

00:40:00--> 00:40:42

Tatiana went from Zaid bin Mohammed Hussein and harissa. When that verse was revealed, then that went back to being admitted that even so he is both macdaddy password as well as that the number and the books mentioned him with both names. Some of the virtues as we mentioned, he was in both Hitler's he played a role in all of the battles with the profit slice on him. He was one of the few people that played a key role in the conquest of Egypt and a sham. So he was in all of the major battles in regards to the opening of Muslim the opening of Egypt as well as the opening of a sham, including the liberation the opening of Palestine, may Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to see it in

00:40:42--> 00:41:22

our lifetimes as well. I mean, he was also a Quran reciter and his he used to love to recite the Quran before and during the time of battles Pilate so unique to remind the people of Allah, so before the battles you would hear that and he would be walking through the ranks of the Muslims reciting the verses of the Quran in a very loud way. And there was not a single battle that he would not do this. So he was known for being the person to walk through the ranks of the Muslims before battle, and to recite the Quran with his booming voice or the Allahu anhu. And we even find, by the way, in the famous voice, Battle of Luke, that had a delivery that will be a long time and we saw I

00:41:22--> 00:41:53

mean, Luke was a huge discrepancy in terms of the size of the army. They were, they were facing, kind of little the Loctite on who called for my dad, and he told him to go and to recite sorbitol and fell to the to the troops in the back. And so that starts to walk between the ranks of the Muslims, he starts to recite out loud, the verses unfold, to boost their morale to keep them going for the battle. And where did he get the nickname of being greater than 1000 people? All might have been a hotdog, it'll be a lot of time.

00:41:54--> 00:42:00

When he sent the reinforcements to Ahmedabad that is I'm gonna be the last saw an opening to Egypt

00:42:01--> 00:42:10

almost all the time. And he only mentioned one men. He said, Look, I'm sending you people. But amongst them, I'm sending you MC dad who's better than 1000 men.

00:42:12--> 00:42:14

Imagine getting that testimony from

00:42:15--> 00:42:52

What kind of a man Do you have to be to be called better than 1000 soldiers better better than 1000 men, biomaterial photography a lot of time I know. But that was how a lot of the olana referred to a little dlo. When he sent him alongside honorable asked for the allotted time, because he asked for reinforcements. When the fitna broke out, he was one of those people who strongly took the side of idle the allowance out and one that is not something that is a lack of honor in any way. strong supporter of it, it'll be a lot of data and who throughout the pfitzner because this was also the position of a model the amount of data and who the position of unbelievable the amount of data and

00:42:52--> 00:43:42

who so that he was one of those who took a strong side with it. It'll be a lot of time. But after the fitna was over, he served in the army of morality a long time and one was one of those who was instrumental to the conquest of Cyprus under why we are the first naval brigade the one that the profit slice of them said that he saw those first people that would travel by sci fi sub Utila, and they had crowns on their heads. He was amongst those people that went out on the day of Cyprus, and receives that from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now, what I'm about to share with you, is SubhanAllah. This narration it sums up not just the life of MC that it sums up the sentiments that

00:43:42--> 00:44:04

you might feel when you hear the biographies of the Sahaba. And those of you that were that were going through the meeting Mohammed's little lights on them series and you're saying Yeah, well, I wish I could have been there. I wish I could have known him. It sums up that sentiment very well. So this narration that I'm about to share is probably the most important narration of the entire series of the first listen

00:44:06--> 00:44:15

up the man even debate in the new face of the man even debate in the new face. he narrates an incident from his father at no faith who was one of the top buried

00:44:16--> 00:44:48

he says that jealous that the young that we sat with them that dad or the law Tiger one day and they were tethering so these two love to learn from him he's a person who had a lot of experience a lot of knowledge a personal and personal virtual the temporary saw the sahabas heroes the Sahaba saw them as heroes so the next generation these people weren't next level the heroes of the Sahaba amongst us he lived a long life on the lawn. So no faces we sat within McDowell the alongside and so he said this man came by

00:44:49--> 00:44:59

and he realized that was a bit that was unmistakable when you saw him. It's like oh my god, the legend this isn't that right. Let me get your autograph. Let me do this. Let me do that. But he was

00:45:00--> 00:45:36

Don't buy a lot. That's the point. Right? What a beautiful person what? What a noble person, someone we've heard so much about. And I'm not that hated that praise, right? But the words that he says to me that listen closely, and I'll read it in Arabic first he said cool that he had a nice latte in your otter or so Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Kiba telling the lie in a in a tiny otter. Rasulullah sallallahu it was how blessing are these two eyes? That got to lay themselves on the Prophet sallallahu it he was

00:45:38--> 00:45:46

like, yeah, Allah, that you're so blessed. You're so lucky. You got to see the Prophet salallahu it he was

00:45:48--> 00:46:01

so he said Too bad he had a nine and attaining otter was Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah Doudna and now aina Moussa eight, I swear by Allah. I wish we could have seen what you saw.

00:46:02--> 00:46:36

Okay, this is a long narration so I just gave you the beginning in Arabic. So for those that want to look up the full narration of Arabic, it's, it's easily found, but I'm going to give you the response of that. What do you think the response would be? Yeah, you know, that a lot of us lost my son was beautiful. It was amazing to be from the Sahaba let me show you my sword from better keep giving you the the insights into how it was to be amongst the prophets lifetime, right? It's a beautiful sentiment. Yeah, love, we wish we were Sahaba we wish we could have been there the day of bed that we should have been there these days with the prophets lie some of them

00:46:37--> 00:46:38

that stood up.

00:46:39--> 00:46:54

And he responded to him. And he said, what makes you people wish to be presence at a time that Allah made you absent from without you knowing what what you would have been had you been presence?

00:46:56--> 00:46:58

What makes you wish to be presence

00:46:59--> 00:47:39

in a time that Allah made you absent from and you don't know what you would have done? Had you been present with the Prophet sallallahu it was Sunday. And he says, I swear by Allah there were people who were present during the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam but Allah threw them headfirst into jahannam because they did not accept him and they refuse to believe in him. Would you people rather not thank Allah, that you were born as people who only know Allah as your Rob, who only know Islam as their religion, and who believe in everything that also les Eisen brought, like you tab there and you haven't so lucky children of the Sahaba you were born in your your parents love the

00:47:39--> 00:48:19

love so much they gave it all to you. You didn't have to fight the way we had to fight you didn't have to be putting those coats of iron the way that we were putting those coats of iron and dragged me and bill on and so hey, you've been tortured the way we were torture. All you knew your whole your whole life was a lot as your Lord Islam as your religion, Mohammed sly seldom as your messenger and he said well lie. We bore hardships that no other generation board. I swear by Allah that Allah sat Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during a time, that was more difficult than any other time in which he sent prophets. It was a time in which the succession of the prophets had long been

00:48:19--> 00:48:42

pause, and repeat where people were so ignorant that they So know that they saw no religion better than idol worship, the only thing they could come to was to make these stones and worship them. That's how far in Japan, how steeped in ignorance these people were. And he says, Then Allah sent the prophets I send them bill for a plan, with the forecast meaning and the criteria.

00:48:43--> 00:49:26

And he said, with that, for con Allah differentiated truth from falsehood, and upon that for a con, even parents and children were divided. And he said, It was so hard on us, that a person whose heart was unlocked to Ian was unlocked to faith would see his father or his son or his brother, live as a rejecter of the Prophet sallallahu. It was said in his message, and we knew that they would be thrown into Jehovah. It's kind of like, you know how hard it was for us to see our relatives. I know, the converts in here can relate to this, right? I mean, like this difficulty, like you think it's easy for us. We looked around and we were suddenly separated from our parents, who were

00:49:26--> 00:49:59

persecuting us for, because because we believed in Allah, his own father, and guess what he loved it, you know, he loved him so much. He adopted him. That's a big move. We saw our fathers, our brothers, our mothers, our sisters, and they fought us, for Allah. And we had to see them in that way. And then he said, because of that, we couldn't experience any coolness in our hearts, knowing what the destiny of our relatives was, and he said it was done that Allah revealed a lot better habarana I mean, as far as you know, there

00:50:00--> 00:50:40

Yeah, Tina forwards with Jana, Tina email. Powerful narration said that's when Allah revealed seeing our situation, how difficult it was for us to have to make these choices to not just undergo the physical persecution, but being separated from our families tortured by our families, believing so much in the profit slice I'm believing so much in what he promised while our families were so resolute in standing against and being enemies of the profit slice of them. And we could never really experience coolness in our hearts in our eyes. We weren't we were never really that happy because we thought What about our fathers? What about our brothers? What about those that we love?

00:50:41--> 00:50:48

And that's when Allah revealed that I've been a habit, as well as you know, the reality now porewater Aryan vagina subpoena

00:50:49--> 00:51:25

of Allah grant us from our spouses and our children, the coolness of our eyes, that our eyes are cooled and our hearts are cooled by what by their adhering to faith. And let us be done with a theme to those that come after us. Let us be for runners, let us be leaders in faith to those that come after us. This is probably the most important narration of the series. You think when you look back and you say, ah, if I was there, I would have been right in between hamazon that said, which one of them should I take, of course I would have suffered for the sake of Allah, of course, I would have gone against the grain of society

00:51:26--> 00:51:31

and endured all of the difficulties that came. Of course this of course,

00:51:32--> 00:51:34

be grateful for the generation Allah put you in.

00:51:35--> 00:51:42

Be grateful for the time Allah put you in. Now you can live for long enough sun Illa was one lemo

00:51:43--> 00:52:22

Allah does not bury soul beyond its scope, nor does allow wrong a single one of us, Allah put you here now in your family in your community for a reason saying hamdulillah for the time that Allah put you in, because Allah gave you your unique share of problems, your unique share of opportunities, your unique exposure to faith, your unique exposure to facade to corruption, you have a chance to stand with and for the truth. Allah gave that to you. But don't sit there and look at the Sahaba and think Oh, you're so lucky. guys had so easy. You got to see the Prophet slice Allah, that must have been a piece of cake, right? Because you got to see the prophets I saw them and then

00:52:22--> 00:53:07

everything was okay. It was hard. It was hard for them. Sudden, but they had the saying, I know what you're thinking. But do what you can in your generation. Do what you can with your situation and that's what's going to count. So are the Allahu taala and that an incredible human being an incredible companion, the first horseman in Islam, that person that was with the Prophet slice Allah in so many of these different situations. He went on all the A lot of times I knew he had three children that survived him, Abdullah nairabet and Kadima that survived him. And they were people had if they memorize a hadith and they narrated Hadith from both of their parents and looked at as well

00:53:07--> 00:53:09

as the Gara or the Allahu taala. And

00:53:10--> 00:53:33

the most famous Hadith, interestingly enough, and there are kids so I won't repeat the full Hadith, but it's actually interesting because it's it it'll be a lot of time I'm needing to ask the Prophet sly summon about an embarrassing question about whether or not he would need to do listen to take a ritual bath and he's too embarrassed to approach the Prophet slice. Um, so he tells me that can you go ask the Prophet slice on for me?

00:53:34--> 00:54:09

So it's actually Subhanallah most famous narration is a narration of ideal the law of town which shows you the position you had with the prophets a lysosome. And it's an authentic narration. So he's Muslim, where he asked the prophets like he asked me to go ask the prophets I send them a question on his behalf. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam gave him an answer that would then go back to it, it'll the Allahu Tada. And the narration that I mentioned, it's a disputed narration and chain but it's mentioned at the end of Skyrim and Ebola, as well as all of the biographies, this hadith and mostly from Breda or the long term, it could be

00:54:10--> 00:54:14

you must love for people it will be the sell man

00:54:15--> 00:54:42

rally in Abu Dhabi and said man, that we bear witness to Allah subhanho wa Taala or we seek from Allah subhana wa tada to put the love of them in our hearts and to put the love of the Prophet sly summon our hearts, Allah I mean, lastly, his inheritance which is an interesting narration Kadima. His daughter narrates that when enough dad died, his maaseiah included 36,000, Durham's for and Hassan Hussein all the alongside,

00:54:43--> 00:54:59

as well as 7000. Durham's for each of Omaha to the nominee and each of the mothers of the believers so his heart being attached to Hassan and Hussein as well as on the heart and what meaning the buzzer the mothers of the believers is very special, and he died in Damascus in dimension

00:55:00--> 00:55:18

May Allah subhana wa tada liberate Damascus and be with our people in Syria as well. I mean, what are the alarm time that Allah amin or saddam or something bad economy you know Mohamed, why did it he also can be a drain and inshallah to Allah We have time for a few questions from the audience
