When you read in the life of a woman of hospital the a lot of time, in fact, a defining moment, not only for him, but for many of the Sahaba was a year that's known as animal nada, the year of ashes. And this was 18 years after his law when the almost struck by what's known as the timeless plague.

below the line, who being the most famous of them bumalik and ashari, not Abu Musab al Malik and Acharya a long time and who shall hubiera the longtime animal and one of the most famous companions and most important companions is more either than gentlemen, about a lot of time and
a lot of time who was only 33 years old. Now just to give you a little bit of context as to how insane that is. More I've is considered one of the greatest mysteries of the companions, he is one of the most days of the companions, he is one of kuttabul ye one of the people that was chosen to write the revelation He is the man that the Prophet slicin um said to him, oh my god, I love you one of the famous ahaadeeth that we have is the Prophet spice.

In fact, even more ill than wild and one other the low tide and who says, Yeah, I'm the man cave Hunter. Oh, man, how are you? And so Hannah law has written response.
