[ Day 8 Du’a ]

اللَّهُمَّ ارْحَمْ طُوْلَ ذَلِكَ القِيِامَ فِي اللَّيْلِ الطَّوِيْلِ، وَذَلِكَ النَّحِيْبُ وَالظَّمَأُ فِي هَوَاجِرِ المَدِيْنَةِ وَمَكَّةَ، وَبِرَّهُ بِأَبِيْهِ وِبِيْ. اللَّهُمَّ قَدْ سَلَّمْتُهُ لِأَمْرِكَ فِيْهِ، وَرَضِيْتُ بِمَا قَضَيْتَ فَأَثِبْنِي فِي عَبْدِ اللهِ ثَوَابَ الصَّابِرِيْنَ الشَّاكِرِيْنَ

“O Allah, have mercy on his lengthy standing during the longest nights, and that whimpering, and his thirst during the hot summer days of Mecca and Madinah, and his kindness to his father and to me. O Allah, I have surrendered him to whatever You decree on him, and am content with whatever You have decided, so reward me for ‘Abdullah the reward of the patient and thankful.”

So now I want to come over to Qatar everyone welcome back to praise of the pious.

00:00:07--> 00:00:48

One of the most touching and heartbreaking stories that you read about in the seat of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or of his companions is the story about the loveliness of a man lobby pleased with him. The first child that was born in Medina, who the Muslims carried and chanted Allahu Akbar, as he was in the hands of exodus of df in the hands of the Prophet peace be upon him as this first child that was born in Medina to dispel any idea that there was a curse surrounding the women in Medina and their ability to give birth and the tragic assassination and crucifixion of Abdullah Vanessa Bay. As Abdullah bin Ahmad mentioned, I was there on that day when they carried him

00:00:48--> 00:01:32

through the streets of Medina chanting Allahu Akbar as he was born. And I was there on the day that they crucified Him. And these ugly people that use the name of Allah, were also chanting Allahu Akbar. Just as those beautiful people were chanting Allahu Akbar, as they held him as he was given life. So these people that murdered him, chanted Allahu Akbar, and took joy in his assassination. And this is a very meaningful and powerful moment for us to really reflect on and to really appreciate, that I'm loving is available the amount of time who is a man that stood against all odds, I mean, he was born and resistance, his birth was resistance. And so imagine now he is

00:01:32--> 00:02:12

resisting the oppression of the halifa he's resisting the oppression of other people that are saying that you know, hello, Mohammed little sort of law, and he is standing in front of his mother is not meant to be back at him a lot be pleased with her, who was 100 years old at that time, who was one of the first Muslims, the one who delivered food to the Prophet peace be upon him or kept the news of the Prophet peace be upon him and Rebecca during the migration, this woman that was slapped by Abuja, in her service to Islam, this woman that struggled her entire life, and she's 100 years old, and her son is seeking advice from her on how to deal with the suppression how to deal with the

00:02:12--> 00:02:56

situation. And she is comforting him and preparing him for that moment where he will be crucified and killed right next to the house of a loss of Hannah Montana. And she makes this drought for him she makes us powerful. And there is no doubt more powerful than the mother and there's no doubt more powerful than the one who's under oppression. She says a lot more harmful early kellyann for laylat tawi with early can enable a llama olfi how are you gonna Medina to America. She said, Oh Allah have mercy on his lengthy standing during the longest nights, and that wintering and his thirst during the hot summer days of Mecca and Medina. All of those days that he starved all of those days that he

00:02:56--> 00:03:42

suffered all of those days that he was abandoned, and all of those days that he stood up, calling upon you during the longest night a llama hamdulillah that he can cram for laylat Pauline Weatherly can enable a llama ofI Hello Angela Medina to America. And then she says what little wha hoo be Avi he will be and reward his kindness to his father. And to me. She said Allah Houma PUD Salaam to hooli Amreeka fee, Allah I have surrendered him to whatever you decree on him, will lead to be my public fee. And I have made myself content with whatever you have decided in regards to him. So grab me the reward fee, Abdullah, grant me the reward the swab with Abdullah, the lava saw been a

00:03:42--> 00:04:24

shocking, grant me the reward of the patient, and the thankful grant me the reward of the patient and the thankful. I mean, there's not much that I can do to explain this die except to just take a moment to appreciate its beauty. There's so many themes that we take from this, the drought of the oppressed, the daughter of the mother, the love and admiration that this mother had for her own child and what she saw in his lengthy standing and his whimpering and crying out to a loss of Hannah Montana, and the way that he struggled his entire life and live the life of resistance. And she not only mentions his sacrifice in his service, but she also asked a lot for the reward of her sacrifice

00:04:24--> 00:04:59

and her service. And I think the most beautiful lesson that you can take from that as a smart was very privy to the fact that the death of her son would ultimately lead to her death as well, that she was living at that point through her son, and son Pamela, when I'm belovedness obeyed, was crucified and he was left crucified next to the Kaaba, she would you know, she would come out this 100 year old woman, and she would cry at the body of the loveliness debate, and would say, isn't it time for this noble warrior

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

Isn't it time for this noble warrior to come down? Isn't it time for this body, this man to be honored and Subhanallah she she fled until eventually his body was taken down after being crucified, and she died only a few days later. May Allah be pleased with her and allow us to meet this beautiful woman, this powerful mother on the Day of Judgment, who is a symbol of resistance a symbol of righteousness in all circumstances? May Allah subhana wa tada be pleased with her son, and be pleased with that family And may Allah subhanaw taala allow us to face our oppressors with the greatest courage and with the greatest sincerity and be families that are thankful and patience even

00:05:41--> 00:05:47
