I mean when I give her too much caffeine Allahu wa Salatu was Salam robotica Abdi Cora silica Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, on early he or Sahibi he was setting them to see him and cathedra tonight we are going to be speaking about in sha Allah to Allah, a woman who truly is in a league of her own. And when I say she's in the league of her own, you know, many times you find a genre of Sahaba of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam. And then you talk about, you know, three or four of them that match the category. But with this woman, she actually is entirely in a league of her own and that there is literally no other companion. That is like her all the hola Jota Anna
Anna, And subhanAllah it's interesting because we're coming off of if you guys really want to make me feel good, who did we talk about last week? Hassan and myself it's okay, not a hard question. I just wanted to make sure that you're still with me inshallah. From the very start, we just finished talking about Hassan and Ruth Alberto the Alonso and Hassan Musavat, is a man who is specifically known for not fighting.
Right, and it's still praised by the prophets of Allah hearty whistling, right, a man who refused to be in any battle, and actually was unable to see the battlefield in any capacity whatsoever. Yet still, he is someone who is deeply praised by Allah and by the messenger Salallahu it who was Saddam and today we're going to be talking about a woman in nusseibeh didn't care about the Allahu taala, who is only known for literally one thing which is fighting, which is being in the battlefield. So Subhanallah you find this interesting contrast amongst the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and there is practically nothing narrated about this woman, except for the
battlefield that we're going to be talking about today. While the Allahu Tada Anna and fair warning, it's a bloody story. There's a lot of blood in the story. There's a lot of sacrifice in the story. And as I thought about Subhanallah, what's the title nusseibeh? Well, the Allahu Tada and her with She's literally the mother of all sacrifice. You know, she reminds me Subhan Allah of when you see some of those women from the areas of the Ummah that are under oppression, may Allah subhanaw taala make it easy for them, and multiple of their children have been martyred, have been shahada and they still respond with Rila with pleasure with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada and this exemplary patients that
you don't see anywhere else may Allah subhanaw taala make it easy for those widows of the OMA and those those women who often face some of these devastating circumstances and their courage is on full display. This woman will be alongside her and her reminds me of those women or rather those women remind me of this particular woman out of the Allahu Taala Anna so let's introduce her a bit with her story. Her background in sha Allah to Allah first so her name is ohm O'Meara OMA O'Meara new Sabir been to carob Ibni Al Ansari Yeah. So she is nusseibeh Ben's carob ignore arm Al Ansari and her name is also NASA NASA. Both pronunciations are correct. So her name is recorded as both
nusseibeh and NASA so if anyone wants to name their daughter, now Siva instead of nusseibeh, it's fine insha Allah to Allah, as both of them are narrated as a theater, Rahim Allah says, and they're both correct. So she is also someone from the tribe of Bedouin a job. Can anyone tell me who been on the job is this point hopefully some of you can remember as we get into the details of the story.
They are the maternal relatives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who can tell me some of the companions that belong to Ben on a job.
I'll give you a clue. The last one we covered all right Hassan without it's the personal hosts of the prophets lie Selim,
about your will on Saudi,
the mother of NSW Malik.
Just testing you guys is trying to wake you up, who's the mother and I said no Malik, from Sudan or the Allahu anha. So there's there are a few of the unsolved
that belong to this tribe have been when a job and then when the job was a sub tribe of Huzzah. Raj was a sub tribe of husbands and they were the while they were the maternal relatives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And so they had a greater attachment or a greater affection to him, by the standards that existed at the time by the standards that existed at the time. Now, we don't have any information about her parents. The assumption is that her parents passed away before Islam even came to Medina. But what we do know is that as far as she is concerned, both her and her husbands her previous husband, as well as the husband that she would marry afterwards, all accepted Islam,
and her brothers also accepted Islam.
Her brothers are Abdullah new cab and the rockin out of new cab while the Allahu Taala and humor I'm loving the cab and the American cab we're both early companions of the Prophet slice I'm from Medina meaning they were from the first of the unsalted to accept Islam. They took Bay I would the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, they attended every battle with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and her brother, Abdul Rahman, in particular, is known as one of alberca in one of those who were crying. I don't expect you all to remember too much about this, but you remember the story of capital melodical, the Allahu Anhu there were a group of companions who could not go out into book
because they didn't have the means. And so they cried. They wept because they wish to be with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So one of those people that was noted as being amongst those that were crying, those that sincerely wish they could be with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Allah Subhana Allah, Akbar Allahu Allah azza wa jal recorded their good deeds in the Quran as if they were their entire book with the Prophet slice and then because they were sincere in wishing they could be with the Prophet slice alum is her brother Abdul Rahman, who was grieving when he found himself unable to go out with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam in the Battle of
Tabuk. So her brothers have this quality as well, of rushing to the site of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and wanting to be there for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now she has two husbands that are recorded. And it's important to note because it's actually very interesting. Her first husband is they did not awesome. They didn't Awesome. Well, the Allahu Tada and it appears and Allah knows best that they were married before Islam and divorced before Islam. Okay, however, he's also a companion. All right. Her second husband is Xia, Xia
Z abnorm. Well, the Allahu taala. And so both her previous husband as well as the husband after Zaid as well as the z as a diviner, Alison and Rosie of Nam, are both companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so when Islam eventually came to Medina, they both are considered from the early, early companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from El Medina from her first husband. They did not ask him she has to her two famous children her two famous sons. The first one is Habib Ignaz eight. The second one is Abdullah who is eight. So it is again, you have nusseibeh or in a Siva Binz cab. Her first husband is a diviner awesome, and she has her two famous sons from
them, who were who we're going to learn about as well in the story, but in the night, Tyler Habib was aids, and Abdullah who was eight, and then from her second husband, the Xia. She has a boy that's named Amin and a girl that is named hola that we don't know much about while the along with Tyler and imaginary that are recorded, their names are there but we don't know much about them at all hurt. Two sons are very famous. We'll see why they're very famous, but her two sons have been abused. And Abdullah and his eight are very famous Subhanallah all of them, her previous husband and her current husband at the time that Islam came. All of her children are amongst those who embraced
Islam immediately when they heard about it in Medina. She was amongst those who heard the message from Musa divinorum Adel, the Allahu taala. And who so if you put yourself in her shoes, she is one of those who attended the first gathering of Muslim women are made all the alongside and when it comes to yesterday about the time in that gathering by Sid Zlata. And he starts to talk to the people about Islam about this new message from Mecca. However, you start to see some of her famous character from the very starts, which is that she did not wait for the prophets lie some to come to Medina. She instead herself went to br tilaka Athenia the second pledge with the Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam. So the first pledge was in Mecca with the six men privately with the Prophets lie Selim. And then the second one is the 72 or 73 companions that came to Mecca the next year in Hajj after embracing Islam with Muslim women are made and they privately took the bait I would the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they were 70 men 70 men and two women or three. So we know there are 17 man that came from Medina to Mecca and this daunting journey with most eyebrow the Allahu Anhu and met the prophets lie some privately to take the bait are with him. And obviously it's understood that when they take the bait or they take the bait on behalf of their families as
well, but no Sabir was one of those who was insistent that she herself go to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she takes the pledge with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and so she
narrates about this time. And it's narrated first from one of the male companions. In fact from Katelyn thematical. The Allah Tala Anhu captive nomadic cattle the Allahu Taala and he says it's the mountain of a shared we're not going to separate Hoonah La Jolla. Well Marina Umbra tan that we met the Prophet slicin on privately in secrecy in Mecca and we were 70 men and we had with us two women and he says no saber Vince card Amara and another woman a smart been to amor who is known as a manier on linear so nusseibeh, Vince carob, Amara and a smart Vin Tamar on linear. And in some narrations, we also have the mother of anisul the Allahu Anhu on Sudan middle the Allahu anha. So
two or three women that actually went on that journey, which was a very daring journey, to take the pledge with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took the pledge with the 70 man, they lined up and they all shook the hand of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam, and they took the pledge with him. And then she now narrate she says that Zoji Xia my husband, Razia said to me, ya rasool Allah, Hi, Tony, I'm gonna Anton, how about I tap that these are two women that have come to take the baby out with you as well and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, then let it be and he took it verbally and he said, LA or Sophia
and Nisa I do not shake hands with women. So this was the famous narration of the prophets licensing that was off. And Lisa do not shake hands with women was in fact in they are tilaka a Sania was in the second bay area with the 70 men and these two women that had come from El Medina to embrace Islam with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but he took the br with them still, with the same verbal allegiance it his salatu salam that he took from the 70 men. This is the earliest recollection that we have of her.
We don't have much about her before Islam. In fact, we have nothing about her before Islam. And we don't have much about her after this except for the battles that she's going to take part in. But I just want you to appreciate for a moment, the mindsets that she goes out there herself to take this mayor with the profit slice on them and she wants to experience this as well. She also mentions in one narration that she brought her young children so she's already gearing her children for this idea of sacrifice on the part of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so her two children have even Abdullah at the time. I mean, Ben was eight and Abdullah and was eight were still young from
her previous marriage and she took them to take the bait with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam now when the battle of bed there comes around, she was not present at the Battle of bed because the Battle of bed that of course took part away from Medina. Right. And nor were her children presents because her children were too young. However, both her previous husband and her current husband were amongst the bedroom as well as her brothers. Okay, so her family is already out there in the Battle of bed that and they're considered from the best of the companions and as we said the only reason why her own children are not their heavy burden was eight and the loved one was EIGHT is because
they were still considered too young to fight in the Battle of better then comes the Battle of effect. Now,
the whole biography of nusseibeh Ben's cab is pretty much summarized usually in the Battle of boyhood, but we're gonna go beyond that because it's very interesting. She participates in as we're going to see, but then after her hurt, she also participates in the Battle of Hanoi duck. She also goes to her Davia she also participates in her name, and then she participates in the Battle of yo mama, and then she participates in the Battle of the milk. So basically, a herd opened the door for this woman
to where she wasn't going to miss the battlefield after that moment with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So while we usually think of Omar Mara nusseibeh, Vince capital, the Allahu Anhu for this famous role that she plays in the battle, this was just the beginning for her Radi Allahu taala. And, and you get this, you get this, this look through her eyes of the beginning of the battle, because she was so famously tied to Erfurt.
You can't read the books of Seattle without seeing someone walking up to her in Medina and asking her about the day ahead, what was the day of her life so she narrates some of what happened with her herself, which is very precious, when she can give you a first hand account of herself, and others narrate what happened with her as well. And she narrates what happens to some of the companions on the date of as well. So she lived long enough to narrate the story of through her own experience through her own eyes. And somehow was very interesting, because when I was reading through some of the narrations from Ramallah, well, the last time I'd heard about the day, she would say, I can see
in the aura
I can see this person coming forth. I can see to me as hard as if I'm looking at it right now. So it's like every single time she told you the story of when you sat with her, she was narrating it and she was recalling every incident and she was deeply moved by those moments because it was clearly the most defining moment in her life while the Allahu taala. A day when most people ran away from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she was going to be one of those women who ran towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one of the few that ran towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So she describes
the way the battle starts to take place.
She describes the moment that 300 of the hypocrites abandon the Prophet slice on before the battle even started.
So the prophets lie some is left already with 700 out of 1000 because 300 men turned away from the battlefield right before it even started on the day of effort on the premise that I'd love No babe and salutes that he's not taking my advice. We should have fought inside Medina or this considered on the outskirts of Medina. So she witnesses the abandonment of the Prophet slice.
And then she says that these 3000 men came forward
from the Mushrikeen from the disbelievers to fight against our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And while she's telling the story, she's asked, she said, were the women of the masjid akin fighting, that any of the women of the Mushrikeen participate in the battle? Because it's very clear that you participate in the battle, if it's so from the disbelieving side, that any of the women participate as well. And she said, None of the women from the Mushrikeen from the disbelievers ever raised the hand on the day of effort except to beat the drums and to sing the songs of celebration.
Meaning what there was a large group of women that came from the other side, on the day of hoods, remember, it was a day of vengeance for the disbelievers because of the loss of the date of better, and they wanted to make a scene. So they brought their women out many of the widows, of the leaders of grace that died on the day of of bed that of course the most famous one was not a widow but but Hindes been Earthbound, right hand mentored by coming with her husband, Joseph young, so many of the women came out to beat the drums and to sing and to participate on that day by chanting out these inflammatory lyrics, and beating the drums on the day of Earth, but that was also a show for us that
we have extras we have extras. So she says none of them at any point lifted a hand except to beat the drums not even in the beginning of hurt because remember, there's a point or hurt where the Muslims defeated them decisively. Right? She said that the women on their side flood just like the men had fled at that time. And then of course, as we know, they went around the back of it and then they attacked the Muslims once again. So she says none of the women lifted a hand on that day from the mushy cat from the disbelievers except to beat the drums and to sing the songs of joy Helia of the days of ignorance. She says As for myself, she was with a group of some of the sahabi out some
of the female companions of the Prophet slice Allah and they held with them, the medical supplies that would be necessary to rush into the battlefield and to help the wounded in real time.
And you know what's so beautiful about this narration because it can easily be missed. She says that with us was a shot of the Allahu Taala and 30 model the Allahu Taala Anna, on selama or the Allahu Taala Ana Sofia binter Abdul Muttalib Radi Allahu Taala Anna on Solane Radi Allahu anha. So basically the family of the prophets lie Selim, like the prophets lie some did not try to protect his relatives first.
Isha and ohm Salama, the Mothers of the Believers were out there Fatima while the Allahu anha been total su SallAllahu sallam was out there. And she said, I was out there, the auntie of the Prophet sighs someone's out their own surname was out there. And we were holding our buckets and we had our supplies and we were going to participate in this battle by running into the battlefield and treating the wounded as it was going to happen. So they weren't there with drums that already shows you the mindset. They weren't there with the drums and to sing or to carry wine. They were there to participate in this regard. And she says that my husband and my two sons
were next to the prophets Allah Allah Harney, who was salam. So at this point now her two sons are old enough to participate. This is their first battle alongside the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Sophia Zia are the Allahu Tada and who and her two sons Abdullah and Habib, the two sons were there with the Prophet slice I'm ready to fight alongside the Prophet slice and I'm the truth on Saudi spirit. So her whole family is on the battlefield.
As his battle begins to unfold,
and then Subhan Allah as we all know, this was the day
in which Allah subhanaw taala revealed about a group of companions Mina me Nina Regina on Sadako ma Had Allah it. I mean human Cavanna women home and young toddler, one bed the router Videla, when Allah Subhana Allah says from the believers are and I'm going to intentionally say the job, men who were truthful to the covenant that they took with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, men whom man Tada anima woman who Mignon Tada Rama but the roots of de la some of them were able to fulfill their covenant right away. And some of them were delayed in fulfilling their covenant with Allah subhanaw taala. But they never lost any resolve. They remained committed to that mission.
One of the proofs that some of them are firstly don't use that when the word of the job when the word men is used in the capacity of righteousness and virtue. It is not referring to men as in males, but as referring to men and women, Regina will not treat him he's auditing when they are an undeclared law. There are other verses of this genre is that they say Omar Amara is one of these people that Allah's parents is describing. Omar Omar is one of these people that Allah is describing that were truthful with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. So it's not meant as in males, it is the believers, the believing men and the believing women. It covers both the men and the women who are truthful in
their covenant with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah.
Because as we know,
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells the archers who were the strategic advantage of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do not come down from the hill until I instruct you to do so. If you see victory, waits until I tell you to come down. If you see defeat, even if you see them, cutting our bodies into pieces, don't come down until you're instructed by the Rasulullah Salallahu salam to come down from the hill.
Well overheard unfolds, the Muslims attain victory and the disbelievers run away or so the Muslims think.
And 40 of the 50 Archers see the spoils. Remember, these people brought all sorts of victory memorabilia and all sorts of weapons to celebrate the day of earth and everything like that. They see all of that, and 40 of the 50 Come down. Despite the profit slice I'm telling them not to come down.
When they do that, they leave the back of the Muslims vulnerable. Khalid bin Walid, although the Allahu Taala and who who at that time, of course is on the other side, recognizes the unique opportunity takes the disbelieving army around a hurt and attacks from behind. Now at that moment, It's pandemonium. It's chaos. Most people instinctively flee the battlefields. Especially when in the midst of the chaos. They hear that we killed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Katana Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam some of them cried and put their weapons down. Some of them ran away.
And there's this the small group of people I mean, I want you to think about it. This is already the best generation of people the Sahaba of the Prophet slice on them. But there's this tiny group of people that then bend around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recognizing that was Allah say Sam is still alive, and seeking to protect the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. She said that when I saw
and it's very hard for you to,
to really appreciate this unless you put yourself in the moment. So I want you for a moment to imagine yourself in the battlefield. And you see the best of the Sahaba of the Prophet slice I'm fleeing from the battlefield.
And you see the swords of the opposing army, landing upon the necks of people and killing people and butchering them and the blood is flowing.
And in the midst of that screaming,
what's going to cause you to jump in the middle of that?
Seriously, just think about it for a moment because with nusseibeh are the Allahu Taala anha like you have to think about the judgment call that she's about to make. What's going to cause you to look at all of that and say I'm going in instead of running away.
Now for her, no se but all the Allahu Taala Anna,
you could say perhaps it's her husband and her two sons that are still in the midst of that maybe that's why she's gonna jump in.
You remember the narration where the prophets lie Selim and the companions are marveling at this woman running through the battlefield to pick up her crying child
completely ignoring the swords and the weaponry, and then holding her child and nursing her child. And the the way that the Companions looked at that, and the prophets lysosome capitalizing on that to say you think that woman would throw her child into a fire, and Allah is more Autohome Allah is more merciful to you than that mother is to her child, meaning the mother loved her child so much that instinctively she jumped into the battlefield, not caring about anything that was around to pick up her child, and to hold her child. Now, I want you to think about a real life manifestation
of the Prophet's life. And I'm saying no one of you truly believes until you love the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam, more than you love your own parents, your own children, and your own self.
Think about that.
Meaning while the hadith is used to convey the depth of Allah's mercy, in using the love of a mother for a child, that the mother would jump into this dangerous situation without even thinking twice about it to save her child, to hold her child.
There are people that love the profit slice, and the more than that woman loves her child, you understand what I'm getting out. There are people that love the Prophet SAW Salem, more than that mother loves her child.
And so instinctively, when she sees the people fleeing from the battlefield, she doesn't think about her own husband and her two sons. She said, she immediately thought about the prophets of Allah Hardy, who is something that in and of itself, subhanAllah is stunning.
And I'm going to jump into all of this because of Sula sigh, Salam is in there. And I don't even know for sure that he's still alive. And I'm almost certainly going to die. But whatever it takes, so she drops the bucket. She drops the materials that she had to treat the wounded on the day of a hood.
And she describes the moment that some people are fleeing and they're throwing their swords in the air and they're throwing their armor, they're throwing their shields. Why? Because they want to be fast. They want to be light. So you're trying to run away from the battlefield as quick as possible. So you're just you're relinquishing what's in your hands. You're relinquishing what's on your body. And she said, I yelled out to one of the men that was running, give your give your weapons to someone who's going to fight on behalf of the prophets like Selim.
So he threw it. And she picks up a shield and a sword. And she dives right in
put yourself in their mindset. Every time I read the story, I try to come like let me think about and I've been to I've had many times. And in fact, if you close your eyes enough, you can actually you can hear it. You can feel it. I mean, the show had that right there in front of you.
She jumps in and she has her shield, and she has her sword and she starts to swing that sword right and left.
And she runs towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
When she gets to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
she's described she says that no one was around the Prophet slice. I'm at that point except for 10 or so people. And it was me, my husband and my two sons. So Subhanallah a whole family that's nourished by this love of the prophets lie Selim. She sees her husband and her two kids are amongst those people fighting alongside the prophets lie. So I'm trying to trying to get the the enemies away from the messenger, salallahu Salam and fight them off with whatever they have. Even if they lost their weapons, they're throwing stones at the Mushrikeen they're doing whatever they can to defend the prophets lie some so she gets there. And she describes it that way. And then she says
that she describes this moment where she's next to Osama bin laden with the allotted time.
And if you remember with most liberal, the Allahu Taala and Han Musab tried to attract the enemy away from the Prophets lie Selim and he knew he looked like the Prophet slice. And um, so he made a lot of noise with his horse, and he did things to attract the attention of the Mushrikeen so that they would run towards him and not towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
and so she described seeing most of the Allahu Taala and she's the one who sees him
whipping up the dirt, trying to attract the Mushrikeen towards him instead of towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and she's not just waving her sword right and left the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to boast about nusseibeh All the Allahu Taala and, and used to say that she was better than full on Wafula and he would name civili Selim the people, the warriors, the northern warriors amongst the companions. He said I looked to my right and to my left on the day of boyhood and
In front of me and behind me, and every direction I looked, I saw no say about bins cab. Amara Amara Radi Allahu anhu, swinging her sword.
That's also lost my son's vantage point on that day, I looked at her and I saw her swinging her sword right and left and holding her shield and jumping in the midst of it. And she was better than so and so and so and so and so and so I mean, she really got him she didn't get in timidly, she really got into the midst of the battle.
And she describes
that moment and Abdullah her son, he was close to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet slice and I've said it and Omar Amara,
the son of Amara, and he said, Yes, because remember, they recovered. It's me. So he said, our means throat. And Abdullah said, There was a man coming right at the prophets lie some on his horse, and I took a stone and I threw the stone first at the horse, and it hit the eye of the horse that was riding towards the prophets lie Selim. And the horse fell on the ground, and the man fell off and then I attacked the men.
And once I attacked the man, I didn't have any weapons. I was throwing stones and I was throwing whatever I could get my hands on. This is her son.
I was wounded. I was struck by this by a heavy a heavy hit. So this man strikes me
and I fall to the ground, and I start bleeding. And my mother comes to me, Amara nusseibeh Radi Allahu Anhu runs to him and she starts wrapping him up, and she's saying, Come stand up and fight on behalf of the Prophet slice on them.
So the only moment that she puts down her own sword in her own shield is to get her own son, you know, bandaged up and saying get up and fight on behalf of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam. So she wraps him up quickly, and she stands up and she says go fight. She picks up her sword again. And she picks up her shield again and she starts swinging. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says, Manuel Titi matutina Yo, Ma Ma. Who is it that could do what you do? Oh, ma, ma. You know, it's amazing, because I heard the prophets lie. Some was praising those companions in the midst of the chaos, who could do what you're doing? Like who is it that does what you're doing? Oh, Mara,
So she says, and so I continued to fight.
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as we're fighting. He points out a man and it says how the body will Ethniki that's the one that hit your son. So Amara Masha Allah mother, she goes after the men. She hunts down the man that struck her son. And she, she she hits him with the sword and he falls off and then the companions were able to apprehend him and kill him.
So she actually goes after the one who struck Abdullah on that day, and she was the reason why they were able to apprehend him and to kill him and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he smiled, and he said, Alhamdulillah Allah de la Farah ki what a court of law enoki mean I do working with Iraqi Iraqi we are uniquely Alhamdulillah All Praise be to Allah Subhana Allah Who gave you that blessing, who let you see that revenge with your own eyes? Who allowed you to take revenge on the one who hurt your son, the one who wounded your son. So this is her mindset. I mean, she's a warrior, a serious warrior, she runs towards the man that struck Abdullah, and she strikes him and
she kills him. And then there is another man that comes charging at her with the horse. She averts the horse, she hits the horse, the man falls and she kills the men.
So she's in the midst of it all. And then she describes being next to most aberle The Allahu Taala and heard that at one point, she looks up and she sees most of the Allahu Taala on home.
And she sees the man coming at most aberle The Allahu Taala and who by the name of Abdullah Murakami.
And Hebrew Camilla
strikes, Musab or the Allahu Taala and
and kills him.
And subhanAllah I mean, think about it. She was there when most admiralty law and who first brought Islam to Medina, she sat in that first gathering where Musab taught them about Islam, and she just saw with her own two eyes, most of all the Allahu Anhu fall
and ignore coming, I was looking for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam
and so once he kills most hoBRO the Allah I don't realize is that it wasn't the Prophet SAW Selim. He starts charging towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And she says I stood right in his way. Channel I mean think about it like this furious horseman who's screaming man and Joe to another I will not live if he lives meaning I will kill him SallAllahu it he was some No, I'm not going to let him go. This furious
Horseman is coming towards the prophets lie Selim. And she gets in his way. And she takes a stab at trying to hit him. And she misses and she says that he was double armored that he was in two coats of armor, so I wasn't able to affect him. And he strikes her right on the shoulder.
And she said, I was wounded 13 times on that day, she had 13 wounds on the day, but so it's not like she came out unharmed, 13 wounds, and they said that the gash on her shoulder from IGNOU, Camilla was so large and so, so devastating that took her a year to get over it. It would take her a whole year after her to be able to nurse that one wounds from that day of Abdullah, you know, coming out when he struck her. And then of course, this was the man that then jumped on the Prophet saw the lice and when he started to beat the helmet of the Prophet, slice them into his face, he knocked out the teeth of the Prophet sites and um, he was trying to kill the prophets of Allah hiney or
something. So she witnessed that she was in the midst of that.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam saw her wounded
on the battlefield, and he says, Yeah, I have no more Amara olmak olmak Oh, son of Omar Mata, your your mom, your mom, your mom, your mom. So now Abdullah, who she had nursed prior to that runs towards his mom, and he starts to nurse his mom.
And then she gets up and she starts fighting on behalf of the prophets, Allah Lysa.
I suppose Subhan Allah for a moment.
When the prophets lie, some looks around, and also less lies. I've never forgotten those few people that never left him. That never left him on the forehead that surrounded him and never left him. For a moment was so lost. My son looked around and he saw this handful of companions in this handful of companions. There is only one entire family, and that's her and her family. Her, her husband, and her two sons, wounded, all swinging their swords, despite themselves almost dying on the part of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam seeing that and saying I looked right and left. And everywhere I looked, I saw Omar Omar all the Allahu Taala and
her swinging her sword. Again, what compels you to jump in the middle of that? What compels you to keep going even after you've been wounded even after you've seen some of the strongest horsemen flee the battlefield or be killed and you're still there with your own kids fighting on the part of the Prophet sallallahu it he was seven
and in the middle of that as the as she's wounded
and her kids are there was so lost my son um, starts to say what a family this is. What a family the family of Amana? Just what an incredible family
Norman Bates, what a household you are.
And she hears that you know what she says to the prophets lie Selim?
She says Yaroslav Allah, or Allah and Rafi professional Jana,
O Messenger of Allah can you make dua to Allah that we will be with you and Jim, like in the middle of that you want to be with the profits license? She's not thinking what's my ticket out of here? And like yes, we are near Milan de la Nirmal beach what a great family we are. Jada sort of Allah. Ask Allah that we get to be with you in paradise the way we're with you in this battlefield ahead. And the prophets I some says Allah Masha Allah Martha if an agenda Oh Allah make them my companions in Jana. And she says, in response, ya rasool Allah, ma or body metal Savini Mina dunya
I don't care what happens to me this dunya after this Subhan Allah, I don't care what happens to me now.
If I'm killed now, afterwards.
The prophets lie some just said Allahu Allah modificar effulgent Allah make them my companions and Paradise. So I don't care.
Not all body mass are willing to do. Whatever happens from here on out in this journey. I don't care.
That is the purest expression of Eman of Yaqeen of faith and certainty that you can hear from a person's mouth
at this point, that's it. We heard it all. Well, Sula sigh Salam said that we're going to be his companions in Jannah.
And so they fought on the part of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
and eventually, were able to survive.
And the prophets lie Selim would walk by her after a hurt and also lost my son would praise her
and say what a woman Amata is, right I mean, I remember the day right and left in front of
The man behind me, Omar Amara was there a lot of the Allahu Taala and fighting on my side throughout the entire battle. But there is literally no other person who has a story like this woman. No other person was a story like this woman.
And she continues after the battle ahead to be on the side of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And from that day onwards, how do you even tell a woman like that, you're not going to be in the battlefield.
So no one was ever going to tell her after that. You can't participate, you're not going to be in the battlefield. So when a battle now takes place after her, she grabs her sword just like everybody else, and she goes in because she's not turning back. Because this becomes her reputation. Well, the Allahu Taala and her that she is going to be in the battlefield with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And so she was present like she wasn't October. On the day of her they be, she was presence in Hybl. On the day of zap with the Prophet sallallahu it was some she was present in her name with the Prophet SAW Salem. And there are only a few a hadith that we have from her, where she
actually narrates a conversation Subhan Allah one of those is an eternity.
She came to the Prophet sign, salam, a TITO Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she came to the Prophet slice I'm and she said yeah battlesuit Allah. Nara Kula shaitan Illa Lidija wa wa era and Nisa youth Khurana be shaking?
Yeah, oh Rasul Allah, how come all I hear in the Quran is the men are being specified with all of these rewards, and the women are not being mentioned in any way.
So why is it that the men are being mentioned and not the women now? SubhanAllah. Of course, when Allah says the job mean, it refers to and even as a function of the Arabic language, the men and the women. But she's someone that has literally been in the trench with the Prophet slice Allah.
And with the prophets of Allah, Allah on his side, and she's asking you how to sort of lat will Allah specify the women in some regard? And Allah Subhana Allah revealed, what he revealed in the Muslim arena when Muslim it will not mean it will mean it will carnitine I will carnita it until the end of the ayah, the 35th verse of Surah that heads up. And of course, there's a similar narration of Onsala model the law on asking the asking the prophets why so I'm the same thing, that indeed the Muslim men and the Muslim women, the believing men and the believing women, the obedient men and the obedient women, Assad 18 are Saudi caught the truthful men and the true for women are Sabino slobby
lots, the patient men and the patient women until the end of the day where Allah specifically mentions the women alongside the men in this regard. And in this narration, Timothy, it was only a matter who comes to the Prophet size versus the Rasul Allah, are we going to get a specific mention as well, the way that the men are specifically mentioned about the Allahu Taala and other than that, it's just a handful of a Hadith from the Prophet salallahu Salam and a handful of incidents one narration about and World War One narration, where she describes that the Prophet slicin wanted to perform the law and the vessel was brought to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it had
full sail mood. Just just two thirds of a mood of water was brought to him it his thoughts were Center. She mentioned one narration from the heads of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the prophets lysozyme said Yahama Hola Hola Mohalla clean
three times may Allah have mercy on those that shaved their heads three times and then after that they said what about those who cut their hair and the profit slice I'm set on the third time when will custody and those who cut their hair and she has one famous narration from the angel series of some of you might remember
the profit slice on visited her one day and she presented the profit slice on with some food and the profit slice I'm asked her to sit down and to eat as well. And she said I replied and I said to the profit slice I'm that I'm fasting and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responded man and saw him in your keluar in the hood in La sala de la Hill Mira Iike Hatay Asheboro will feed you I had yeah for all that there is no person who is fasting while other people are eating in their presence, except that the angels will send their prayers upon them until they are full or until they leave. So this is her narration while the Allahu Taala and her this took place in her home with the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. However, subhanAllah her story does not end there and it it becomes once again a story of sacrifice. They are legends from the Battle of Gods right legends from battle.
But then arises towards the end of the life of the prophets lie Selim a man by the name of Musa al Qaeda
The most famous false prophet that rose in the time of the prophets lie Selim will say lemma, the liar. And you'll hear about Maceda today and I'll mention him as well next week Inshallah, because he's very relevant to the story next week as well being the naughty Thailand will say, NAMA and Kitab, as we've mentioned a few times already, was the most vicious of the false prophets and the one who ended up commanding a large following. And he appeared right before the prophets lie, some passed away. And then he tried to use the death of the Prophet sly some as a moment for him to take over and to command a larger following. And what he did was, is he first tried to make a compromise
with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that look you'd be rasool Allah and I'll be Rasul Allah to you be rasool Allah for Quraysh I'll be Rasul Allah for bento Hanifa. And then we'll split up the land into two and will basically be co messengers of ALLAH. So he tried to play that game. He started to make up his own Quran, and he was a vicious man.
And he sends a letter to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, men will say Lima rasool Allah, rasool Allah, Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam Rasulillah, from will say Lima, the Messenger of Allah to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Messenger of Allah. We have half the earth you have half the earth you take half the land Quraysh will take half the land has been Hanifa will split it up, and we can share our mission together.
No Amon was little the Allah Tada annually says that when the prophets lie Selim heard these ambassadors of Mustela. Read this to them. The prophets lie Selim says, Mata Kulani and tumah What do you to say? I'm very curious you to as you're reading this letter from this Kedah from this liar. What do you say? And they said, ChemiCon we say what he said. Meaning we're upon what Mercedes Emma the one who sent us is upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Mo Allah He, Lola and ruler law took the door off to Anna hakama prophets lie some said, I swear by Allah if it wasn't that Ambassador should not be harmed. I would have struck both of you right now.
I mean, this is so disgraceful, right and the confidence and the arrogance to come say that to the prophets lie some in front of the companions. But look, and by the way, this isn't authentic hadith of the prophets, why some is honoring what he's honoring the best ethics of war that you know what this man is basically waging war but I'm not going to harm the ambassador's I'm not going to harm you because that would not be appropriate for the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because there is a level of deception and a level of transgression that is involved in that. So the prophets why some sends them away.
Then Rasul Allah say some chooses to address Musa with his own letter and his own ambassadors this is where we're going to see no sabe a story become irrelevant once again.
So the prophets why some writes a letter Bismillah R Rahman Rahim and Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala Musa al Qaeda, from Muhammad the Messenger of Allah to mistake Dima the liar As Salam or Allah Manitoba and Huda peace beyond to those who follow rightful guidance. A lot of doula you read through her Manisha will activate to limiting us for the earth that you talk about dividing the earth belongs to Allah.
You refill harming a SHA, Allah will give it to whom he wills with our people to clean and victory belongs to the pious. Victory belongs to the pious.
So Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he sends this letter and he appoints Habib Nauset. Habib being the son of nusseibeh, Vince carob. He appoints Habib crusade to be the ambassador along with one other companion.
And he sends them to Mercedes Mancha.
And when they arrive
to Mercedes Emma and they they read this, this letter
will say lemma says to them, or he says to first Habib, museo to read attached to anna Muhammad Rasool Allah. Do you bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called an arm? He said, Yes.
Pilar attache, do any rasool Allah
and do you bear witness that I am the messenger of Allah. Habib Nauset says last month, I can't hear you.
He says it again with an angry voice attached head to under Mohammad Rasool Allah. Do you bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah? He says, yes. attached to any rasool Allah do you bear witness that I am the messenger of Allah? Have you been was eight says last summer. I can't hear you.
He says it a third time and he stands up and he comes close to him in a threatening posture.
attached to Anna Mohammad Rasool Allah, Allah Now, do you bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah? Yes. Do you bear witness that I am the messenger of Allah? He says I can't hear.
So what he proceeds to do next
is he essentially crucifies him while he's alive.
He ties him up. And this is where you start to see the difference between a tyrant and a messenger of Allah. He starts to dismember him piece by piece while he's alive.
cuts his arms, cuts his legs starts to mutilate him. And the entire time have you been was a the same a shadow animal Hamadan rasool Allah,
I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of allah sallallahu wasallam.
And so he basically dismembers him in front of the people. And this is of course what tyrants resort to to send a message to their followers. Don't you dare flee us. He basically dismembered him while he sang a shadow and no Muhammad Rasul Allah.
And that is another act of transgression here remember the prophets I said, I'm saying I'm not going to touch these ambassadors. That's not how we work. Terms of our ethics, accord he did.
Then he says to the other companion that was sent to the prophets I seldom touched. How do I know Muhammad Rasool Allah after he just watched heavy beginners aid, dismember to death? Do you bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Tala Neram? He said, Yes, but not attached to any rasool Allah. Do you bear witness that I'm the Messenger of Allah? He said, Nam Yes.
And he said them get out of here.
The other man comes back to tell the Prophet's life and then what happens.
He comes back to the prophets lie Selim and he says yes, that Allah elect,
you have a sort of law I'm destroyed.
He said, what happens now? Shut up. Look what happened. So he told him the entire story of what happens.
The prophets I send them was deeply moved. I mean, this is disgusting act of transgression and against a young man Subhan Allah and someone who is near and dear someone who was there on the part of the Prophet sly someone that he had with his family, and this is how he treated him. This is how he mutilated him in murdering him.
And the prophets like some response to this other companion who thinks that he's done who thinks that his his life is over because he thinks he basically apostate and Moussa he will come from Allah, Allah Imani. He said, Look, as for your companion, have you been crusade. He died on his era. He died on his faith. And for Hashtable rasa. As for you, you took the excuse. Like you shouldn't be so mad at yourself. And it's the same thing the profit slice I'm told that amount of money acid will the Allahu Tada and when he watched Samia his mother until the Allahu Anhu killed and he watched his father. Yes, that killed all the Allahu Anhu in our model, the Allahu Anhu. At that moment, he
buckled and he said, What Abuja had wanted him to say, and he thought he was done.
So the Prophet SAW Islam says, Allah and tell you what are you upon today? Shadow Anika rasool Allah, Allah who can that I bear witness that you're the Messenger of Allah, and that he is a liar, the profit slice and I'm set, then you're okay.
Don't worry about yourself.
Now he has to find a way to break the news to own our model.
Safe havens capital, the Allahu anha, not just about the death of her son, but about the way that he was killed.
And when the news reaches this woman who save up in capital, the Allahu taala, and her alma mater, listen to her words.
She says, Men actually have the motive or that to who were in the light has have to say
that I prepared him for this moment. And I sought my reward from Allah subhanaw taala with him. Look at the barrier of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Leila tilaka TISA Lila, he took the pledge with the Prophet slice. I'm on the ninth of October as a young man. Well worth la Julio Maka, Vera. And as an adult, he showed his loyalty he showed that he was committed to that pledge with the profit slice.
But she's hurt mom. She says, whether in Kennedy law who Minwoo Salem, law, Jelena Bonacci y'all terminal who do the allergy, if I live long enough, and if Allah gives me the opportunity to see musei lemma,
then I will cause his daughters to grieve, meaning I will take his life the way he took the life of my son so she now is committed to what this man murdered my son in this way. And this man is a false prophet of Allah. And she has made the commitment that she wants to continue this fight and she's going to go forward.
And Allah as time goes on, she hears the call. Hi, Jana.
PETA little cat that she describes that moment when she's when she's told when the Muslims are called in Medina to go out and to fight al Qaeda to fight the liar mo Salem at that point
was dismembering and murdering and becoming far more emboldened and his fitness was growing. It was one of the largest fitness it was looked at as an existential threat. As you'll see next week when we talk about Zaidan fabric Radi Allahu Anhu it's like an existential threat to Islam. That's what it is perceived as that of course, Allah azza wa jal will preserve his Deen, but that's how severe it is. But Abubaker will the Allahu Taala and who calls for the battle towards a Yamama the Battle of the mama the battle against the apostates and she goes out, and she was over 60 years old, with her son Abdullah. So Habib has been martyred. And she's now with her second son Abdullah, and she
takes an oath by ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada that she's going to be present at that moment. When Allah subhanaw taala gives her that revenge. This is a unique, strong woman.
And on the day of your mama, just imagine in the midst of everything that's going on, you're facing this cruel man. And this fortress, which was called the fortress of deaths, because of what he used to do to people.
And she's saying at night I do Allah de Luna Ali, where's the enemy of Allah? Show me where he is? Where's the enemy of Allah show me where he is. This is the courage of this woman. And she's there with her son and they are advancing forward the entire time and no one is going to tell her to stay home. No one's going to tell her to not be present in the battlefield.
Now we may know Subhan Allah, the man that throws the spear that strikes will say lemma is who?
washy washy, who on the day of hurt through the spear that killed Hemsedal the Allahu taala. And what she said from his tilbyr from his repentance, he used the same spear against Muslim and kidnap so he spotted him on that day and he threw the spear and he said, I'll tell you to hire a nurse I killed the best of people and I killed the worst of people. Now when will say them I was struck by that spear.
The blow from the spear is what killed him. But the man who actually finished him off was Abdullah
was the brother of Habib and the son of nusseibeh, Amara, Radi Allahu Taala and much Marian so it was actually Abdullah Abu Zaid are the Allahu Taala and who, who went forth and who actually
killed Musa Elena who had dismembered his brother and who claimed that false, that false prophet hood so no Sabir actually saw that happen. And she said Al Hamdulillah, Allah subhanho wa Taala allowed me to see the enemy of Allah be taken from this earth and it was the same mindset Subhan Allah remember and I heard the kuffaar started out and they said out they said a day for a day and the response from the prophets like some of the companions is what you're dead or in hellfire are dead or in paradise. Remember when she said on the day, that I do not care what happens to me after this day, because the prophets I said, we're going to be his neighbors, we're going to be his
companions in paradise, but Allah Subhana Allah gave her the ability to be there on the battle of your mama, but Subhanallah and this is what I said. This is one of those stories that has a lot of sacrifice. nusseibeh lost her arm on that day, while the Allahu Taala Anna in that battle.
And you know what she said? She said, I did the sob I sought the reward from Allah for one of my two sons and I seek their award from Allah for one of my two hands.
She continued to fight and she was wounded over 11 times and Subhan Allah Miraculously, she did not die. Her granddaughter describes Subhanallah, looking at nusseibeh All the Allahu anha this old woman imagine a seven year old woman walking through Medina that has witnessed multiple battles that's been wounded over 30 times.
Fighting alongside the prophets lie Selim and fighting against this false prophet. This is no saveable the Allahu Taala and her alma mater. And she goes on and she insists when the remote cabin she goes and she fights in the Battle of yarmulke to with one hand, with one hand where she can carry her sword and she refuses to stay back.
I'm going to end with one story Subhan Allah in this regard, miraculously, this woman doesn't die on the battlefield.
She actually dies a very in her old age and natural death. Well, the Allahu Taala on her and she's buried under the buck here and in Medina.
But she lived to the life of Amara Cotabato the Allahu Anhu. And can you imagine like, seeing her walking the streets of Medina
like Subhanallah like knowing what she's been through and knowing what she's done, this woman has experienced sacrifice in every single observable way. And you see her walking the streets of Medina. I mean, she's a pretty intimidating woman in a sense
haber just all right to all that you would have nusseibeh, Vince capital the Allahu Tada Anna.
And it was said on Omaha Pablo, the Allahu taala. And who used to receive gifts from foreign emissaries he'd send them to receive it because he's like, the person that deserves this as nusseibeh because of all that she did for Islam. And one time
there was a package of some silk garments that was brought to Armadyl, the low end and it was considered the most expensive foreign gift that he received. And so people gathered around him starting to give him suggestions about what he should do with it.
And some of the people said, You should give this to your daughter in law, the wife of Abdullah bin Omar, Sofia, the wife of Abdullah, normally you should give this expensive garment to Abdullah and Omar and Omar the Allahu taala. And who said
this isn't something I'm going to give tip and Omar I'm gonna order his wife, I'm gonna send it to the most entitled person in this ummah, the person who deserves it most from this OMA now model the Allahu Anhu
is overcome clearly with emotion. And he starts to narrate on the date of a hood. I heard the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam say that I saw myself on the days ahead, and when I looked right or left, I saw Omar Omar or the Allahu Taala and her swinging her sword.
And Armadyl the Allahu Anhu sent it to her.
This is our hero for today And subhanAllah a woman that is remarkable and in her own right, is truly in a league of her own Amara, Sabir means carob are the Allahu Taala Anna, may Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with her. May Allah azza wa jal be pleased with her family. And just as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made up
for Allah subhanho wa Taala to make her and her family, his little fucka his close ones in an agenda may Allah subhanaw taala make us from the roof aka of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and from the roof of nusseibeh, Amara or the Allahu Taala and her and her family in it for the dose of Allah.
