Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh everyone welcome back to the first and hunted a lot of learning we took a break so that we could have the series for those left behind I pray that it was beneficial to you all I hope that inshallah tada you gained from it and it gave you a lot of perspective and also some practical tips on how to grieve and grow. May Allah subhana wa tada Have mercy on our loved ones and May Allah subhana wa tada allow us to develop that perspective. And that purpose and that thrust towards pleasing Him so that we may join our loved ones around our most beloved one Southern lahardee with some agenda for those mean. So here we are back to the first as

00:00:45--> 00:01:14

promised in sha Allah Tada, we're going to try our best to knock out 40 episodes before Ramadan and sha Allah to Allah, we'll see if we're able to succeed in doing so. But But then I thought it will continue at some point after Milan as well. Now, as I come to the biography today, this is sort of an outlier in the sense that the person that we're covering today is not one of those first 15 or 20, or even 25 to accept Islam,

00:01:15--> 00:02:00

but her son as Vatanen r1 will the Allahu Thailand who is one of the first to accept Islam. And as I was looking at the story of his obaidul the alongside einhell I realized that you really cannot appreciate the story of reservado the Allahu anhu unless you really know and appreciate the biography of his mother who we're talking about today. Sophia, Vin Thompson methodic. Well the Allahu taala on him because she is an extraordinary figure, she is very unique and her personality is so prominent in the personality of is available the low tide on hold, and her her influence on his obaidul the low tide I know just comes out through almost all of the heroic episodes that we

00:02:00--> 00:02:39

find in the life of Zubaydah. Now one of the alongside I know so I decided to start with the mother and inshallah tada we're going to talk about Sofia, then we will talk about reservado the allowed Thailand who separately then we will talk about a smart backyard while the alohar and her wife, the wife of a Zubaydah smart the daughter of Rebecca may Allah be pleased with her will talk about her inshallah town and each one of them requiring their own episode. And as I always say, we cannot do justice upon a lot, especially when you're talking about lateral mobility in the 10 promise paradise as a little the Aloha and who can be 10 lectures all by himself. You haven't even started talking

00:02:39--> 00:03:19

about his sons, Abdullah urawa there's so much to talk about here, but let's start with the mother inshallah. Tada. And when we start with Sophia Ben Thompson multiplet I actually Wish I could have a live crowd in front of me because I like to do this test with my students. How many uncle's of the prophets lie sentiment arts of the Prophet slicin? Can you name Okay, so I want you as you're with me to think about them, what are the names that come to mind? And I'm going to imagine that I have my live audience right in front of me. And the first one that will come up will either be Hamza will the Allahu anhu or both Khalid or Abu lahab right those are the three that are most prominent in the

00:03:19--> 00:03:29

seat of the Prophet slice. The fourth one a lot bustle the a lot of time as well right so if you go through the four most famous uncle's of the Prophet slice of them again,

00:03:30--> 00:04:14

Abu lahab us and of course Hamza will the Allahu taala. But what if I was to tell you that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam had about 12 uncle's Okay, not even getting to his aunts 12 uncles in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam some of the scholars say they were 1011 or 12. But it's a lot of uncles and remember, the father of the profits lights on them was to be sacrificed. Right. That's a whole story. Abdullah, the father of the prophets lie Selim was to be sacrificed but loss of Hannah horchata protected him as he protected his Mary. It is Salatu was salam, as well. And Allah subhanho wa Taala made of him a great nation. So who are the uncles of the

00:04:14--> 00:04:39

Prophet sallallahu wasallam these are the sons of the Muslims. First and foremost you have of course a little pilot, and I will tell him his real name, because if you remember when we went through the life of the Allahu anhu we talked about how Ebeltoft have had an incredible naming scheme. Okay, I will find a name two sons with great meanings and his daughters with great meanings, but thought of his his oldest son, so he's

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

his real name was Abdi manasse. Okay, so his abdomen F which of course is a common ancestor, when we talk about many of these great tribes and life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So I've done enough is that then you have Hamza or the allowance Allah and who alaba so the Allahu taala. And who will have of course

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

an Ebola Hub's name was Abdullah Riza. Abdullah Riza. So Abdullah hubbs actual name is Abdullah Reza. Now who are the other uncle's you have an uncle of the Prophet seisen by the name of ZWave All right, which gives you some insight into the namings. You start to see that aside from the name Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Mostly most of these names are found in the uncles and the onsen and they're transferred to the children so he has as severe as one of his uncles. He has a hadith as one of his uncle's Alma Lila Elmo when Leon cusum and Musab okay Kusum, of course was also the name of a famous son of an imbecile the Allahu taala Okay, so an Ibis, and of course, his wife levada. Allman

00:05:47--> 00:06:30

father, or the lohana, they had their son Kusum, or the Allahu taala. And so a lot of these names are common in the sila, but we don't know much about the uncles of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam except the four that I mentioned because of how prominently they they featured. Most of these uncles, of course, passed away before Islam even came to be before the prophets lie, some received revelation. And we know that the only two of them that embraced Islam with certainty are an Ibis, and Hamza, are they allowed to learn? Okay, so those are 11 uncles of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And some of the scholars say there is a 12th as well. Then you have the aunt of the

00:06:30--> 00:07:14

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the paternal aunts of the Prophet Alayhi, salaatu, wa Salaam, and their names are Sophia, of course, who we're going to talk about today. Then you have home hacking, then you have Attica, and then you have oma, and then you have Ottawa, and then you have Bella. So these are the six arts of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Now, the only art of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that we know embraced Islam without a doubt is Sophia bent up the mattala are the Allahu taala. And so of the uncles and aunts of the profit slice a lump all of them that I've listed here 17 of them. The three that we are certain embraced Islam are Hamza al Abbas

00:07:14--> 00:07:57

and Sophia been tagged in localup. May Allah be pleased with them. The scholars also mentioned Attica and Ottawa as having embraced Islam. Ottawa scholars like an Imam Ibn Abdul Rahim Allah tada actually establishes it authentically the Ottawa as well accepted Islam. So, if Attica and Ottawa embraced Islam as well, the answer of the prophets lie Selim. What we know is that the only one of the answers of the profit slice alum who would certainty embraced Islam and then featured prominently in the Seattle is the woman that we are speaking about tonight, Sophia, Vint, I'm delighted about the Allahu taala on him. And there are a few reasons for that the most obvious of

00:07:57--> 00:08:44

them is her age. Sophia was only a year older than the Prophet sallallahu it he was Salaam. And some of the scholars say the exact same age as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So she was born in 569 or 570, at the same time as the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam so there's the age, the closest of her Ah, to the prophets lie Selim. So she's the last of the girls. She also was very close to Hamza while the Allahu Allahu Hamza of course was the same age as the Prophet slicin. We'll talk about Hamza bin Abdul muttalib while the Allahu anhu of course in his own episode, his glorious biography May Allah subhana wa tada be pleased with him. So you've got Sofia and Hamza being around the same

00:08:44--> 00:09:21

age as the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam. So Sophia grew up with the Prophet slice alum. She was even though she was his art, she's really more like his, his sister, it is Salatu was Salam. And the thing that she is most prominent for in terms of her family relations is her closeness to Hamza although the low tide on now they were born within a year of each other. And Sophia, you know, you find her biography revolves around Hamza law, the law, as much as it revolves around as obeyed by the law of title and her own son. So she loved Hamza

00:09:22--> 00:10:00

greatly. Then you have the connection of Sophia been topped up to the Prophet sallallahu. It was stolen from her husband's side. So the first person that she married, was a man by the name of it had been help. And that is also the father of was the brother of Abu Sufyan. So it had it been How is the older brother of Abu Sufyan, so she was initially of luciferians sister in law and then he passed away how to have been how to pass away and she married our well even Hoyland our worm, even hold

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

waited, of course is the beta that I won. Last one, even while it is also the brother of our mother Khadija. Well the low tide on Okay, so now this is getting very close. Not only is she like the sister of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, even though she's actually his aunt, she is married to she is the sister in law of Khadija. Well, the law of Thailand had the wife of the messenger salallahu alayhi wasallam. So she's, she's really close to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Now, not just through her blood, but also through her marriage, her and a woman who had had three sons, they had a zubaid, they had a sub, and they had a young boy named Abdullah Kava, who died very young,

00:10:45--> 00:11:26

when an alum died as obeyed, and were just young boys. And so Sophia, while the low tide on her would actually raise her kids as a single mom, which is again going to factor quite a bit into her personality. When you look at the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he knows that experience it is Salatu was Salam. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was tested in what his mother also passed away when he was six years old. So you find multiple, you know, stories of people whose father's passed away due to war due to battle, due to due to the difficulties of the trade routes that they would go out, some of them would die on the way to or from a sham or from

00:11:26--> 00:12:13

Yemen, when they would go out. But with the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, you see that he lost both of his parents out of his lotto slam his father before he was even born. And of course, his mother Amina, when he was only six years old it his slots was to them. So Sofia knows this environment, and Sophia did not remarry after him. So she decided to raise her two sons, her two boys by herself as obeyed being the oldest. Now what type of tibia what type of attitude does she bring to her parenting and that's what is going to feature most prominently in the story of as available the A lot of times, it is actually her discipline, her discipline, she was worried about

00:12:13--> 00:12:57

as obaidul, the Allahu tada and being treated cruelly as an orphan in that society. This is so important, so important that she did not want her son Zubaydah to be treated differently to be disadvantaged because he was an orphan. And as you look in the Koran and you see in the Sunnah of the Prophet slicin, the emphasis on honoring the orphan, that's because of the way that orphans were overlooked, and mistreated in that society. So she wanted as obeyed, while they allow time to unhook, to be independent, to be strong, to be courageous to be intelligent. So her whole mothering of is available. The alongside it was a very involved mother, a single mother that that lives for

00:12:57--> 00:13:38

her child that, you know, that spends everything she has on is available, the allowance out there, and that takes him out to learn the The Art of War as a young child, so it was a selfie, it was Sophia that was going out and taking him out. Also summoning no fun, even hated the other brother of Khadija, or the allowance had on her who was still alive. So the uncle visible to take him out to make sure that he got the exposure of any young men in that society so that he would be strong so that he would be intelligent, so that he would be courageous so that he'd be able to handle the pressure of being an orphan. And some had a lot one of you know, as you start to read these stories

00:13:38--> 00:14:25

about, you know, how rough she was on his way, and how, how involved she was in his life and the way that she, you know, she tried to instill a great sense of courage in him and the disciplining, you find these lines of poetry, and Sophia, about the long term and who was truly a poet poet, you can find many poems from Sophia been tagged in multilib of the Allahu taala and her and one of the things that happened is that nofal even hated, who we will learn about it, you know, in a bit NOFA tells Sophia, that, you know, you discipline him as if you hate him. You discipline him as if you hate him. And that was very offensive to her. You know, how dare you say I discipline him because I

00:14:25--> 00:14:59

hate him. Of course, I don't hate him, right, that this type of parenting and this rough society, I had to make sure that he was able to handle himself. So she responded to her brother in law nurofen who was of course the the brother of her husband who had passed away. She responded to him with these lines of poetry. She said men Karla, caught up to who forgot Caleb, whoever claims that I hate my own child has lied. What in Nima avaliable, who Nikkei Yellin and I hit him so that one day he can grow up and he can be strong loop is like intelligent he can handle himself he can he can

00:15:00--> 00:15:39

He can, you know, fend for himself and this society? Well, yes, he wanted to sell it. And not only am I doing it for him, but one day, he will defeat armies all by himself and returned victorious with the spoils of battle. That's why I'm so rough with him right? Now, obviously, you know, this is the days of ignorance there are there there is the roughness of society to the orphan. And there's clearly, you know, for the sake of historical accuracy, or to mention it right, there's clearly a roughness that Sophia had with us obeyed that the prophets lie, some of them would not recommend a parent to have with their child, but it's to understand the mindset and the environment that is

00:15:39--> 00:16:24

available, the allowance add on who was born into so she mentions and other lines of poetry? How did you find my son as a Where did you find him to be a fruit? Or did you find him to be a Falcon, right? She wants him to be strong, she wants him to be courageous, she wants him to fight, you know, for himself to defeat armies, and to not be intimidated by anyone. Now, of course, Subhana Allah, never did she expect, that she was raising as the battle the law taught on how to be so intelligent, strong and courageous that he would challenge her with Islam. So Subhana Allah, this was, you know, quite an incidence when he comes home, at the age of 13 years old, and is of age says that I have

00:16:24--> 00:17:03

accepted Islam, I've accepted the religion of Muhammad, sallAllahu, Alayhi, wasallam. And gone against all of my uncles and the whole family have have the mythology, and gone against every everyone and everything in this society, to follow what I believe is the truth, the truth of Islam, she was raising him so that he wouldn't be bullied by other kids so that he wouldn't be mistreated and overlooked. So I've had a lot here is the strong personality of a zubaid. And it's the strong personality of his obaidul, the Allahu tada on him, that she had a great deal to do with that caused him to accept Islam, despite the bullying and the torture that would come his way. So she comes as a

00:17:03--> 00:17:39

dad comes home, and tells his mother that I've accepted Islam. And she argues with him, and you know, there isn't much here to really, to read explicitly, but it could be Allah knows best, right? That she's trying to protect him from society, right, you're already an orphan, you already don't have your father, you don't have any older brothers to take care of you. Now you're going to go out there, you're going to join this religion of outcasts, you're going to be dealt with even more harshly. So she tried to fight him to not become a Muslim when he came home and said that he was a Muslim, not because she hated the profit slice of them, because she loved her son. And this is

00:17:39--> 00:18:14

something by the way, I want you to note when we're talking about sad little, the alohar and who and his mother going out and saying, I'm going to starve myself a hunger strike, and I'm not going to comb my hair. I'm going to let the lice destroy me, so that you leave Islam. These mothers were doing that because they thought they were loving their children. They thought that the best way to protect their children was to protect them from at that time, Islam itself. And Eliza just spoke to the sincerity of that but said do not obey them when they tell you to disobey Allah Subhana hoods and so she's not doing this out of a hatred for her nephew who is more like her brother Muhammad

00:18:14--> 00:19:00

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she's doing it to try to protect her son as obeyed all the clouds out on who and it's a misguided form of trying to protect them. So what does she do when she can't get as available the Allahu anhu himself to reject this new religion of his she calls the same uncle who used to you know, tell her that you're too rough on your son and she tells him to punish him to do what you need to do to get him out to relinquish this religion of his and this uncle is no fun once again, no fun had a horrible way of torturing his obaidul the allowance add on which we will talk about in Charlotte's Allah when we talk about is available the law No, but I want to focus this

00:19:00--> 00:19:41

lesson this first lesson on Sophia herself. So nofal comes in, and no fun his uncle is the torture of as obeyed while the Allahu taala and so what changed with Sophia? Or the allowance add on? Hmm, how long did she hold out with her Islam? As I said, this is an outlier of the episodes thus far because we've been talking about people who embraced Islam. In the first batch. She accepted Islam the day that Hamza bin Abdullah multilabel de la junta and who became Muslim. There's a lot to say about that. When Hamza became Muslim It was a game changer. The ultimate Game Changer was Ahmed real hip hop becoming Muslim. When Hamza became Muslim that was the first the first step towards what

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

would be the ultimate you know, ability to stand behind armor to hobble the lowdown on who and come out and declare their Islam proudly so it Hamza takes the religion of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and Hamza pops up with Jehan and tells him that I'm on the religion of my nephew. That was the day that

00:20:00--> 00:20:45

Sofia herself would embrace Islam and would come to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to to dedicate herself to him. Now, Sophia as I said her life revolved around Hamza as much as it revolved around her son as obeyed. She was inseparable from Hamza she used to clean his clothes. She used to greet him when he returned from journeys used to pick his his hair for any lice. She made his shot with Hamza while the low tide on her so she loved her brother Hamza, all the loads that I know deeply. And we know that Hamza was a legend of sorts, and Mecca, he would come home all the youth wanted to be like Hamza. She was the one that would immediately greet him and treat him like an

00:20:45--> 00:21:15

older sister, but really like a mother to Hamza or the lowdown on and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was so close to her. She now had embraced Islam he was so close to her, that when a loss of Hannah what to Allah revealed what ended I see lots of carabin to warn those who are closest to you from your relatives first, who did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam call out to he stood up and he called out Yeah, fall tema bent out.

00:21:16--> 00:21:56

Yeah, Sofia to winter the motto, right? He mentioned Fatima or the allowed Tatiana and then he mentioned Sofia all the time and her and then he mentioned earlier salatu salam Yeah, if any of the multiple children or family descendants of Abdul Khalid asked me whatever you want from my wealth, I'll give it to you. But I'm new. I'm Nicola camino. lionshare But look, I can't protect you from a loss of habitat on the Day of Judgment. You know how much I love you fall tema, first and foremost, who is from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and who we've already spoken about was so deeply, you know, was so deeply tied to the heart of the prophets. licen but the Prophet slicin

00:21:56--> 00:22:43

specifically named Sophia, although the allowance Allah and her and said, Ask me whatever you want, but I cannot do anything for you in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Sofia, although the Allahu taala embraces Islam, and she becomes a deeply righteous woman in the life of the prophets lie Selim, she still never remarries. she maintains her, her, her mothering of azizul Valle de la hotel and who she lives with Zubaydah and a smart but Rebecca who will talk about in Charlottetown. A separately may Allah be pleased with them. And she makes the hijra to Allah Medina and Sophia was was no ordinary woman. All right, so we talked about Sofia trying to raise as a way to be able to

00:22:43--> 00:23:00

fend for himself, Sophia, or the law of Thailand, her was a woman that would walk around with a dagger or a sword herself, and would seek to defend the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and has, you know her prominent stories in that regard. First and foremost, it's perfect.

00:23:02--> 00:23:08

is such a difficult topic so Pamela, because when you go to

00:23:09--> 00:23:24

Allah Subhana, which Allah has blessed us when we do Omar Hajj, metalizer, Jed write it down for all of us, you get to go to any visit the Shahada, and hamzat on the low end, of course, is the most prominent of the show had that say you the show had that the leader of the martyrs of

00:23:27--> 00:23:39

the was it was a harsh day for the Muslims. And since we just finished for those left behind this story actually ties in quite a bit to the theme of for those left behind when

00:23:40--> 00:24:20

the news of how many people had been killed and or hurt, came forth when when people could see from a distance the tons of bodies that were laying there, the women came running to the battlefield to see their dead ones. And the prophet SAW Allah hardy who was selling remember how much he loved Hamza, well, the Allahu Allah and who and the way that he cried over hamdulillah the law, when the Prophet and the prophet SAW them himself almost died and are hurt. But when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw the body of Hamza, one of the first things he thought about he calls a debate and he said, Do not invoke he said, Go get your mother from now and don't let her come here. Do not

00:24:20--> 00:24:38

let Sophia come and see the battle the body of hamdulillah the law of town and I can't have her see what was done to the body of hams. Of course, Hamza was not well, the a lot of time was struck by the spirit of why she, but his liver, his body open his liver chewed by Hindi as well, the wife of Abu Sufyan, Hindi omega,

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

what she did to the body of Hamza so the Prophet slice on tells us a bit go stop her in any way that you can make sure that she does not make it to where I am right now. I don't want her to see what has been done to her brother Hamza or the law of Thailand who, who was you know, so important to her. So, as the baby goes out to run

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

To stop her to stop Sophia and tablet mattala and what is she doing? She's moving forth with with with a dagger in her hand and she's yelling at the men she's saying Mr. toman rasulillah did you flee from the Messenger of Allah slice and and what is wrong with you all, she's condemning the man for fleeing from the side of the Prophet sallallahu was summoned to mama rasulillah. How could you do that? How could you all flee from the side of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So she's holding a dagger and actually in the narration of a sham that she was holding a spear in her in her hand, she was throwing a spear towards the other side. So she's very emotional. And she's walking

00:25:40--> 00:25:48

right to the center of the battlefield at this point. And the prophets lie Selim is telling as available stopper as Vale

00:25:49--> 00:26:32

goes to her and tells her mom stop and she keeps moving forward, as is available the law on who grabs her arm says mom stop, and she pushes us away and she says, eat a candy. Get away from me and she keeps on going forward. As the baby keeps on saying Yeah, nah. Oh, my mother, please stop and she keeps on saying eat a candy. He's begging her to stop. And then finally he says yeah, ma Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commands you to stop the Messenger of Allah lahardee with some commands you just stop not your nephew. Mohammed slice Um, no. I'm telling. I'm not saying this for myself. I'm saying the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying to you to stop.

00:26:32--> 00:27:12

As soon as Zubair said that. It's from Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. Look at this woman's taqwa, her piety. She says someone what Laura. She says, I hear and I obey. So she stopped. She froze. One as a bear said that this was an order from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And she says to as available the law and when she says lacking, lacking the Bulava, Annie and Hamza had quoted, she said, but I heard that Hamza was killed. And she says, If that's the case, well law he lost, Your Honor. What does he ban? She said, Look, if that's the case, I will be patient and I'll seek the reward. So I just want to go see Hamza as well, I want to see if Hamza is okay. All right,

00:27:12--> 00:27:18

because that's her concern, as well. So when is the lady confirmed?

00:27:19--> 00:27:59

That indeed Hamza will the Aloha of Thailand who had passed away she started to cry. And she started to seek Allah's forgiveness. And eventually she was allowed to come up to the body of Hamza law, the law of Thailand or in the battlefield and so Han Allah the narration says she stood all the way until the late night over his body and what was she saying? How law for those left behind Allahu Akbar as much as she loved him? She would she kept on repeating in Allah he were in LA he Raji rune, certainly to Allah we belong unto Allah we returned a llama foot Allahu Allahu Allahu Allahu Allah through the whole so she kept on saying Allah forgive him, Allah forgive him, Allah forgive him. And

00:27:59--> 00:28:02

then she kept on saying Allah in the test Cebu

00:28:03--> 00:28:48

Oh Allah, I seek his reward from you, people who are seeking the reward for for this this loss with you? Yeah, like it pains her that much. And she even had she brought the caffeine that would be used for him little de la times. Pamela So you see, truly a heart that is connected to her brother hamzat all the lavonne who say the shut up but you see also an exemplary way of of grief as much as she loved him. So the last time she said all the right thing she said in that interview and a layer on your own that to allow we belong to Him, we return she made stiff law firm, she sought forgiveness for him. She looked up to the sky and she said a lot many people wind up Allah, I seek his reward

00:28:48--> 00:28:57

with you, I seek the reward of this pain with you. Yeah. So that is her relationship to Hamza in the month of April the law of town.

00:28:58--> 00:29:44

And this woman's strength does not show more than another incident that happens in the Hon duck. Now, when the 100 happened when the Battle of the trench happened and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Of course himself starve T was you know pushed to the extreme as were the companions that had to dig that trench in such a short amount of time with such limited resources and to fight off the largest army that they had ever seen. That was coming to attack them. And of course would also happen to make things worse was that some of the people on the inside the hypocrites and some of the the the tribes on the inside bento called Eva benoquin o clock been bent on Elliott had conspired

00:29:44--> 00:29:50

with those that were coming from the outside with the Meccans that were coming from the outside along with the hypocrites of infinite wave and salute

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

to to attack from the inside. Now, when that happened, Hassan Sabbath or the law of Thailand who has this narrow

00:30:00--> 00:30:41

besotted with hobbit was a poet, and he was not a warrior. So his son could not be in battle the way that others could. He was a poet, his way of contributing to the battle was with his tongue. And so he was with the women, the children and the elderly. And they were, they were holed up. And there were two men from Bend, Oregon that had come and they had people behind them to attack to ambush and they were trying to find out if there were any men that were amongst that group of women, children, elderly, there, and they wanted to see if they were armed or not. Look at this woman. Now Sophia have been the whole planet, as we said, is around the same age as the profit slice of them. Right.

00:30:41--> 00:30:45

So she's, you know, she's not a young woman here, okay.

00:30:46--> 00:31:38

has sat him sabots mentioned that she pushed him to go forward to fight the man that was coming to check. And Hassan with avid froze up, he said, Look, I can't fight. If I could fight, I would be on the battlefield. I wouldn't be here with you and Hassan froze up. He didn't know what to do in those moments. So what does she do? Sofia grabs a pole. Okay. And she hides behind the door. And she she waits for the man from Venezuela to sneak in. When the man sneaks in, Sofia hits him with the pole. And single handedly she kills him. Okay, Sophie, all the love on her kills him. And then not only that, she takes the body of the man. And she throws it out over over. You know, the way the

00:31:38--> 00:32:20

narration indicates is that they were on a rooftop of sorts, so she throws out his body, and Hassan is narrating this whole thing over. And so when his body his dead body was thrown over, the others assumed that there was an army that was on the inside and they all fled. There was only Sophia about the allot of time. So how does that mean that is the strength of this woman that she single handedly protected that entire fortress because of her courage. She made them think that an army was actually was actually there. So this is the woman that produced a debate with the allowance on on who and it will make sense why? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he heard this, the prophet SAW

00:32:20--> 00:33:01

Some said in the house Sophia that Sophia Sophia had been thought of is not like any other person, she is her own. Her own Omen son, she's her own army, she's her own strength. So how to learn and look at what how she was able to utilize that strength and some of the most difficult moments. And that's why as the battle the allowance out I know is even Sophia the prophets lie some would call him the son of Sofia because he was like his mother he inherited the strength and the courage of his mother and Sophia are the Allahu taala and her continued to live with as obeyed and a snap into the bucket. They'll be pleased with them. And a smart, considered Sophia to be like a mother to her as

00:33:01--> 00:33:40

well. When the prophet SAW the lights and then passed away There are several poems that are attributed to Sophia eulogizing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam something very beautiful. She described the prophet SAW Selim as a son that is wrapped up in darkness, yet still somehow shining, a sun that is wrapped up in darkness, yes, still somehow shining, referring to the light of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and the the light of guidance that he brought to this world. So Sophia will the law and how she lived through that, the death of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. She lived in El Medina throughout the life of Beckett and then on the hill off of Omaha pub, she

00:33:40--> 00:34:20

passed away and I'm wondering how Paul will be allowed sat on hold, prayed to NAS upon her and she was buried in a book here there in Medina. May Allah subhana wa be pleased with Sophia been stabbed in multilib or the Allahu taala and her the one answer that we know for sure that embraced Islam and that truly, you know, put forth her all gave her all in in the most courageous of ways and produced the man that we will be talking about in Charlottetown next time, which is available the allowance and homey allies which I'd be pleased with her and accept all of that on her behalf her children, her grandchildren, and the example that she leaves behind for us all alum I mean, inshallah Tana, I

00:34:20--> 00:34:24

will see you all next time Zack malachite on Western Mr. de como de la he will go to council
