00:01:06 --> 00:01:47

David hamdulillah Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Allah, Allah He was like the woman who Allah. So tonight in sha Allah to Allah, we are going to be continuing with another one of our mothers, another one of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and certainly one of the most unique stories that we find from the seat of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam. And it's interesting because her name is very common amongst the Muslims, Sophia, or the Allahu Tatiana, the name Sophia, you will find very common amongst the Muslims, unlike the name Judea, for example. But there are so much to her story about the life of a woman that lives under suspicion as a convert to

00:01:47 --> 00:02:27

Islam, because of her background, and that is of course, that Sophia will the Allahu Allah Allah is the only wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from a Jewish background. In fact, she's the only wife of the Prophet sallallahu and he was someone who's not from an Arab backgrounds, okay, so she has a very unique story. And of course, there's much wisdom and as we said, if you look at the nature of the enemies of the prophets of Allah when he was telling him at the time, he marries three daughters of three of the chiefs of his enemies above Sophia from Qureshi marries on Habiba, while the Allahu Taala and, and Abu Sufyan would of course become Muslim. He marries Judea, Vincent

00:02:27 --> 00:03:05

Harris, the daughter of the chief of Benin will Stalock who was plotting on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then how to became Muslim as a result of that. And of course, here, Sofia, Radi Allahu Tada, Anna who are going to be speaking about the daughter of one of the chief enemies of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who did not become Muslim. But of course, one of the greatest ways as we said, that you find a people come together is through the marriage of a leader to someone from that tribe. And in this situation, with Sophia will be allowed to and had there's so much to her story for us to really unpack. Now one of the beautiful gems that we take from this is

00:03:05 --> 00:03:48

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is going to marry in Sofia will the Allahu Taala and her a descendant of Ibrahim alayhis salam and through Ibrahim A descendant also of how rune Alayhis Salam so she is descending through the line of prophets and of course some of the symbolism of this that the Prophet slice and I'm is marrying someone from the lineage of Bani Israel in and in the case of Sid salaam, when isa Islam returns one of the things that's narrated from cabinet bar, Rahim Allah to add a lot of the Allahu Anhu is that SID is Salam would marry a woman from this ummah from the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he resides on this earth, and he specifically

00:03:48 --> 00:04:32

said from Ben acid, which is the tribe of Khadija Radi Allahu Taala Anna. So, the profit slice I'm marrying a descendant of Harun at his Salam. And by extension, her uncle, her great uncle is Musa alayhis salam, and after Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will come reciting his Salaam and Eastside Islam will marry from the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And, of course, this is just a saying of a tabby in this regard, perhaps a woman that is of kin to Khadija will the Allahu Taala on her in specific. So who is Sophia Radi Allahu Taala and her number one, her name was actually Sophia and Sophia means Chosen One. Now some of the writers and authors said that it could

00:04:32 --> 00:04:52

mean that the prophets lie some chose her, but it appears Allahu on him that that was always her name. So her name was not changed from any other name, as was the case of jewel at the Allahu Taala or others, but rather it was her name growing up and there were other women that were named Sophia at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Can anyone tell me any famous ones?

00:04:54 --> 00:04:55

Any famous Sufi years?

00:04:56 --> 00:05:00

Anyone? You'd make me really, really happy because we covered one

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

with them in the first

00:05:03 --> 00:05:40

the aunt of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Sofia been to Abdulmutallab, the mother of ZWave Hypno Sophia, or the Allahu Taala Anna what are the Allahu Anhu so Sofia been tagged in Matata, another famous Sufi or not so famous but famous because of her family is our model the law Anoeta sister named Sophia so Sophia mental hottub as well. So there were other Sofia's at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and it wasn't an uncommon name at the time. Now this Sofia is the daughter of reais Ibn a creative

00:05:42 --> 00:06:29

and creative an octopus is the chief of the most powerful Jewish tribe in Medina Benalmadena Benalmadena. So her father is the chief of one of the most or actually the most powerful Jewish tribe in Medina at the time. Bender Malia. Her mother is named Barbara bent, summer wheel, Samuel Barbara bent summer wheel and she is from the Royals of Benno kureta, another powerful Jewish tribe in Medina at the time. Okay, so you have a woman of noble lineage, and who has a very interesting story of the Prophet slice I'm coming to Medina because, of course, these tribes had settled in Medina, in anticipation of a prophet that was to arise amongst them. That is why you had a migration

00:06:29 --> 00:07:10

of those tribes of the people have the book to the area, because they had traced in the Bible that this was the place that a prophet would arise. And in the case of these tribes, they were expecting a prophet to be a continuation of Bani Israelite youth to be an Israelite, as well. Now, Sophia, will the Allahu anha narrates the story from here as a child growing up and then anticipating the arrival of the prophets, a prophet of Allah and that region, because that was the story of those tribes in the region, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam coming to Koba, so she tells the story herself, she says, Come to a headwater, the OBE that I was the most Beloved of my

00:07:10 --> 00:07:53

children, to my father, what ILA am me about Yasser, and to my father, or to my uncle Abby acid, and she says LEM al Coahoma caught marijuana in Lahoma, Danny Donahoe, that if they saw me amongst their own amongst any other children, if they saw me amongst my siblings, or even my uncle, Abu Yasser, saw me amongst his own children, then they would only pay attention to me because of how much they loved me. So I was the closest to my father, and I was the closest to my uncle, and this is important context, okay. She's saying that my father adored me. And this is something Subhanallah that the scholars will talk about, and that you know, when you read the history, even if some of the

00:07:53 --> 00:08:34

greatest tyrants, that tyrants are different sometimes in their household with their family, they have that cognitive dissonance so she speaks very lovingly about her father and how he treated her despite the way that he's going to treat the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and other people. So with me, he was amazing. She said Philomena Kadima, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Medina when as Allah Koba fie Benny armoury mouth, rather and he Abby here, you know, after a while I made a boo, Yasser. She said so when the prophets lie some came to Medina and he arrived in Cuba. So this is the very beginning of the hijra, the very beginning of the Hijra. Then my father and my

00:08:34 --> 00:09:28

uncle immediately went to Cuba in the morning to see if he was him to see if that was the profit that they had been waiting for. So she's at home. She says that they came after her over shrimps after the sunset. So they spent the whole day in Cuba. And basically she's waiting at the door. She's waiting to see her father and her uncle and hear the news. So she says for RTR, Carlini, Kassala Nene sappy Lanie Yum, she Jonnie el Khomeini. So she says that, they came looking defeated, you know, slumping, beat down, and basically they paid no attention to me whatsoever. So she says, for her for her service to La Hema, can I come to us now? So I went to them the way that I used to

00:09:28 --> 00:09:56

do to my uncle to my father especially, and she said that Wallah he metal taffeta, la Laowa he don't mean Huma, not a single one of them turned towards me, my my father and my uncle completely ignored me like they were so overcome by what had just happened, that they didn't even look at me. So she said that my uncle Abu Yasser, then spoke to my father. And he said to him, a hula hoop

00:09:58 --> 00:09:59

Is it really him?

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

Is it really him? A hula hoop? Is it really him? Called a Nam Allah. And my father created. I swear by Allah it's him. So So for Sophia is watching this conversation unfold before her.

00:10:14 --> 00:10:18

For Carla Atari, who were to be to who?

00:10:19 --> 00:10:27

Her uncle says to her father, you know him, you are able to confirm that this is the prophet of Allah that this is the one we've been waiting for call and

00:10:28 --> 00:10:57

he said, Yes, Carl FMF enough. See caminho the uncle is clearly waiting for instructions from the Father, the head of the tribe. So what do you say about him? What should we do? And he said, What to who will allow him advocate? I will be his enemy as long as I'm alive. So I'm his enemy. So Subhanallah you have these polar opposite reactions. You had Abdullah Who said I'm going to the Allahu taala. I know the chief rabbi of Medina. And as soon as he saw the prophets lies on he embraced him and pulled up.

00:10:58 --> 00:11:35

But this shows you where the political and the scholarly come to clash. The same reason why in Mecca Abuja * rejects the prophets lie Selim. He listens to the Quran. He says, this is divine revelation, I know it. But what is Abuja had to say when he confirms to those that are closest to him. I know he's a prophet of Allah. I know he's telling the truth. He says, but he's from bento Hashem and I'm from Beto. Masoom. If I give Ben who Hashem a prophet, what will happen to metal magazine? So the scholarly class here the Chief Rabbi finds it easy to accept the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and to take this as a confirmation of an extension. Korea even rocked up says we're

00:11:35 --> 00:12:18

going to be at war because he's not from us. He's not from the offspring of Bani Israel either. So this is the prelude to Haber. Haber. Now, the prophets I seldom you know, we talked about this last week he knows about the father of God hiding Two camels and while they're asleep, he knows about Abbasali Allah Tada and who hiding his wealth back in Mecca. He knows all of these things through divine revelation. He's able to tell you about things that are happening inside the cabinet even from a distance so many different things. The prophets lie some knows who the hypocrites of Medina are as well. Why didn't the prophets lie? Some just do something about them? Right? The prophets lie

00:12:18 --> 00:13:02

Selim is actually showing his justice even in these first seven years. The enmity was declared before the prophets I'm even set foot in Medina when he was still out and pulled up, the enmity was declared. But the prophets lie Selim does not treat them in accordance with rumors and in fact, the prophets lie Selim tries to reconcile the tribes he tries his best sallallahu alayhi wasallam for years to try to bring people together and to try to eliminate the feelings of spite and malice and of course he succeeds with some and others are stuck on fighting him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and undermining him at every turn. Now, this is now towards the end of the Madani Sierra where Allah

00:13:02 --> 00:13:43

azza wa jal starts to expose the plots of the people so Abdullah No babe and saloon was exposed last time in Benin will Stalock that's when the exposure of Abdullah and Obon said it will happen because that's when he took the opportunity to say when we get back to Medina, then we're going to displace him we're going to take over and he obviously spreads the slander of our mother, it shall be a lot of time on hand causes the destruction that he causes. Now, you have Heba, Beto, Beto, no Leah and Beto Karela. And create her father is the main one who is working to facilitate the treason from the inside and to harm the prophets lie some from the inside during the Battle of hunt duck. So the

00:13:43 --> 00:14:26

prophets lie some builds a trench with the companions to protect themselves from the outside and from the enemies that are coming from Mecca. And he is the main instigator the chief instigator to work with the outside the external enemy despite everything in between them, despite all the treaties, to try to harm the profit slice on them from within. So you have this political player here you have the hypocrites of Medina that are also working against the profit slice and then you have the profit slice on his enemies from Makkah. Obviously Allah azza wa jal gives the profit slice on victory against his enemies in Hunt duck, they're able to ward off the attack the onslaught and

00:14:26 --> 00:14:59

the profit slice is given victory on the inside as well. And so hurry a Bing from the chief of being the chief of veteran Alia. He is killed in Hiva seven years after hijra, so her father is killed. Now Sophia will be allowed Salah and her husband also would be killed. So her father is killed and her husband has killed Sophia all the a long time he was married twice before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam first he was married to a man by the name of Salaam in Mushkin. And they were divorced and then her

00:15:00 --> 00:15:43

second husband, by her words was a man by the name of Kenan even Eben he'll take. And Kiana had been a bit hoecake was one of the chief insiders against the prophets lie some as well, one of the chief poets, and by her words was also an abusive husband. So it's probably you get very personal here, because you'll actually get to hear some of these things that he actually physically abused her. And particularly, she mentioned her last memory with her husband, to be an abusive memory. And guess what it was, she woke up from a dream, where she saw the moon rising over hyper. So remember, God, Allah, the Allahu anha, saw the moon rising over what I see here. And here, Sophia called the Allahu

00:15:43 --> 00:15:56

taala. And her sees the dream that all of the wives of the Prophet slicin will see of the moon rising. Paula Alba, Drew Elena, the moon rises in a very specific way. So she wakes up and she tells her husband the dream.

00:15:57 --> 00:16:37

And she doesn't know what the dream means. This is before hyper happens. She just thinks it's a beautiful dream that she saw a full moon rising over Hiva. And she says that my husband started to physically beat me he punched me in the face. And he said to the Dean amalickiah, throw up that you want the king of Yathrib that you're desiring the king of Yathrib, you're desiring Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that's the dream that you had. So she said he physically assaulted me and was violent as a result of that. So Subhanallah haber happens, and both her father and her husband will die in Haber. Now, this is where you start to see some of the harshness of the

00:16:37 --> 00:17:21

realities of battle and you start to see the prophets lie some upholding a different level of ethics, and a different level of nobility. When the battle of labor was over, beloved, the Allahu Taala and who was escorting the women of haber away from the battlefield, but he passed by the sight of the battle. Okay, so they saw the casualties basically, and this was something the prophets lie some did not like to happen he didn't like that the relatives see their fallen ones. Think about that, by the way, and compare the prophets lie some from a moral perspective to his enemies, who literally mutilated the bodies and left them strung up and hung up and all types of Timothy All

00:17:21 --> 00:18:00

types of displays after they killed them and old the prophets lie some did not like that the families of the casualties will see them no matter what has transpired. And below the low tide and who made a mistake in walking directly by where the Fallen work and Sophia are the low on her describes a woman that was with her that started to scream and that started to shout and that started to lose it basically. And the prophets I send them got mad and he said to belittle the Allahu Taala and he said, A nausea admin Kurama to your beloved. He said, has mercy been taken from you OB that hat Tamara beam rotini, Allah cuddlier readerly Hema that you would take these women and

00:18:00 --> 00:18:42

you would let them see their fallen loved ones that you let them see their fallen men? Has Rama been taken from you, oh, Buddha. So the prophets lies I'm instructed without all the law on him, to take them away not to let them see that sight. So this is part of the humanity of the situation, as well in hybrid. Now Anasazi Allahu taala. And who he describes he says that the captives were at labor, the prisoners of war were at labor. And as they were at Labor Day, here are the Allahu Taala he took Sophia or the Allahu Taala Mmm hmm. And a group of captives and others took a group of captives and a man came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Takada Jana be Allah. I'll play today here

00:18:42 --> 00:19:24

Sophie Yetta been to create say either to arriva one Nadia, oh prophet of Allah, you gave death here. A captive who was suffering I've been through a she is the princess or she is the leader of Princess say either of Korea and Maldives. She's a noble woman of both Karina and Nadia Natasa who Illa luck. It's not befitting for her to go to anyone except for you, meaning again, a captive of the noble family should go to the noble conqueror in the case of there's a conquest of course, this is a case of warding off an attack from the inside, and the profit slice I'm winning a battle, but what he means by that is that she should be your captive, not your wife. Right? She should be your

00:19:24 --> 00:19:35

captive, right? That she's too noble to simply be a captive to someone else. So the Prophet SAW Salem, he calls Sophia will the Allahu Taala Anna forward

00:19:36 --> 00:20:00

and he says to Sophia, you know, as if to tell her Subhanallah why this had to happen why the reality of battle had to take place the way that it did. He said, lamb yourself a Wookiee in a shed the who the leader. There are 10 hats. Katella hula said Listen, your father was the most vicious of the Jewish tribes towards me until Allah subhanaw taala took him like I'm not a person who likes

00:20:00 --> 00:20:25

To kill people I'm not a person who likes to have these battles the prophets lie some was not seeking this type of a situation and the answer of Sophia surprise the prophets Isola. She said I said to the prophets lie some Yala soul Allah in Allah Yahoo trophy Kitabi he went to zero was, you know, tune wizard okra. She said, I said to the Messenger of Allah, O Messenger of Allah, Allah says in his book, that no one bears the burden of another person.

00:20:26 --> 00:20:28

It was surprising because she's quoting Quran to the Prophet sighs

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

right. And there are numerous things that the scholars will mention here, perhaps obviously, proximity people live amongst each other. There is an exchange of information Muslims are getting to know the Jews of Medina and in non hostile situations there's, you know, an explanation and perhaps something is being recited but the fact that she quotes to the prophets lie Selim, this idea is very interesting. And look at what the prophets lie some does. The prophets lie some says to her, if daddy, I give you the choice for any turtle Islam, I'm SEC two key Lena FC were enough tattletale, Yahoo dia for answer and or a key cookie for tell happy the comic. He said to her look, I'm going to

00:21:14 --> 00:21:54

give you the choice. This is again, a noble gesture from the Prophet slice and I'm to her. He says to her, if you become Muslim, I'll keep you with me. And if you choose to remain amongst the Jewish tribes, if you choose to retain your Jewish religion, then I'll send you back to your people free. You know, I'll actually free you and send you back to your people. This is a noble gesture that is not expected of the prophets lie Selim by any means. Right? That okay, you're a noble woman, and you don't seem to be someone who did anything wrong. So you have a choice. Now, when the prophets lie, some said that and this is important in the context, when he said that I will keep you the context

00:21:54 --> 00:22:21

or what she understands from that is that the prophets lie some will take her as a captive. If she becomes Muslim or the prophets lie some were free her if she retains her religion. So she says Ya rasool Allah, La COVID, Hawaii to Islam was a duck to beaker cobbler and Teddy Rooney, Hazel Soto, Isla Ralick, one early philia who deity Arab one earlier he had while he didn't Well,

00:22:22 --> 00:23:03

so she says to the Prophet slice, and we also Allah, I have longed for Islam. And I testified to your prophethood before you invited me to before you invited me to this religion. And she said, I have no Guardian amongst my tribe. I have no father there. I have no brother there. No one is left for me amongst my people. And she says, Well, hi Jana tunnel. COFRA. Well, Islam, and she said, You're giving me a choice to basically remain upon disbelief or to become a Muslim. This is the choice that I'm hearing from you. So it sounds bad because I'm either going to be a captive and a Muslim. Or I'm going to be free. And upon my other religion, she's saying I actually want to become

00:23:03 --> 00:23:09

Muslim. So she says, in that case, for Allahu wa rasuluh Habu, la Amin, Allah.

00:23:11 --> 00:23:48

Allah and His messenger are more beloved to me than freedom. So she's actually now expressing her sincerity towards Islam. And she says, When our GI ILA, call me in for me to go back to my people, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Of course, this was pleasing to Him. So I sent him but what he meant the entire time was that he was offering her to marry her, which would be a far more noble place than taking her as a captive. He doesn't have to do anything. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the expectation, in fact, is that he takes her as a captive, the prophets lie some instead, frees her, and he proposes to her to marry her while the Allahu Taala Anna, and so the prophets lie

00:23:48 --> 00:24:27

so effectively marries her in this regard. Now Subhanallah there is so much to unpack here. Number one, the fact that the prophets lie some gave her the choice to go back to her people and to retain her religion and no harm on you whatsoever. So it shows you that some of the prophets lie some towards remember to the prophets lie, some did not retain her in captivity. But in fact, the prophets lie some honored her. And this was a hard thing to swallow for the Muslims because she's from benrahma Lea, which was deeply hostile towards the Muslims. So hard thing for them to swallow. And the prophets lie some on top of that establishes something in the ethics of war that was also

00:24:27 --> 00:24:59

unheard of at the time he established his end. For the captives are in the means there's a waiting period for the captives as well, before they would, before they would have any type of intimacy or cohabitation, or whatever it may be. So the prophets lie some sets her free, gives her you know, her freedom as her mom. He marries her SallAllahu sallam, and the prophets lie Selim allows the editor to proceed there. At that point is one cycle or if a pregnancy is there until they deliver, and so she stays with them. So they model the Allahu Taala and her the mother of it.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:41

cinematical the Allahu Anhu as she observes her and with own slang, so they make their way back to Medina. Now the prophets lie Selim was patient, and that the prophets lie Selim waited for her to signal when she was ready for the marriage to actually take place for the Halima to take place. And it was very interesting that she had initially signaled in one place and then she actually said no, and the prophets lie Selim simply kept on going, right. And then she told the prophets lie some afterwards that the reason why I had initially said that I was ready for the edema. And then I said not yet was because she feared that the location that they were in was still close to her people.

00:25:41 --> 00:26:20

And she feared that a counter attack was going to come. And she said, I was afraid that you'd be caught by surprise. So I was more comforted if we would go further away from the location of haber in that regard, and the profit slice and I'm confirmed her truthfulness. So some of the Sahaba were like, we don't trust her. And by the way, Sophia will the Allahu taala. And his entire life struggle is going to be we don't trust her Subhanallah This is so evident in her life and it's a unique fitna her unique struggle that we don't trust her that that constantly is going to be put towards her way. And as every Rahim Allah says, current admin that artha Allahu Allah rasool Allah, He said, Elias

00:26:20 --> 00:26:54

and I'm for habba Whoa, La Mer, La Habra. Tamaryn was a week a custom Allah, that the prophets lie some immediately admired Sophia will be allowed to Allah and honey loves Sophia law, the Lord and how her sense of loyalty or a sense of truthfulness, and the prophets lie some held the walima for Sophia Radi Allahu Taala and with Tamil and sweet and haste I know those of you that took the class which if you ask him for just the one thing I will admit she if he is ever just does better than me as cook so he asked him can cook mashallah so no chef Yasser brought the haste forward and this a week and showed you the way the date paste was the prophets lie some was a simple man and he loved

00:26:54 --> 00:27:34

and haste he loved the date paste right so the wedding of the Prophet slice and I'm takes place actually while they're still on the way back to El Medina also named Radi Allahu taala. And hurt says I tailored a dress for Sophia on the Allah hotel Anna. And the prophets lie Selim called for the walima at a place called said the RO hat and pace was prepared and we put a leather sheet out and the Prophet slice and M says, Tell everyone to come forward. And basically it was a potluck people bring forth whatever food that they have. So some people brought cheese, some people brought dates, some people brought butter, and they basically sat together and the profit slice and I'm sad

00:27:34 --> 00:27:45

Kulu Minh walima to me Come eat from the walima of your mother. And when the prophets lie some calls Sofia your mother. Again. It's like, we're not sure yet.

00:27:46 --> 00:28:04

This is her struggle. So first people were like, Is he really going to go through with this again, this is this is the first time the prophets lie. Some is marrying a woman who is not an Arab, and is from a Jewish background. And they're just coming out of favor, is he and she's the daughter of am knocked up. Who was the most vicious enemy of the prophets lie Selim.

00:28:05 --> 00:28:42

Are you sure? Prophets licensors coolamon walima to me Come eat from the walima of your mother. And they're wondering now is she going to be given a sub status is she going to be a captive is she going to be held differently the prophets lie Selim dressed her in a means of distinction. And he put her behind him SallAllahu Sallam on the camera which shows that she is his wife that she is one of our mothers. And in fact, subhanAllah it's one of the things that's narrated the humility of the prophets lie Selim, that the prophets lie Selim, he kneeled next to the camel and he put one knee outsold. Lauricella. So the way that a person would go down on one knee, his left knee down and his

00:28:42 --> 00:29:22

right knee out, and he invited Sophia or the Allahu anha, to basically use his leg to ascend on to the camel, and this was from the humility of the prophets lie Selim. In fact, Sophia all day long and has said she was extremely shy because he's also lost myself. I'm like, What is he doing? But this was the prophet slice, I'm showing his humility, and showing his grace. Now Subhanallah what happens here and this is one of the most real things that you see about Sophia or the Allah and she talks through the difficulty of that situation. And what she would go through being married, being married to the Prophet slice, and I'm after this difficult time, she says that our first night, they

00:29:22 --> 00:29:38

basically talk the entire night, they were talking, and they are having these conversations, and she narrates all these conversations between her and the prophets lie Selim. And she said the first thing the prophets lie some asked me about was I had a green scar in my eye,

00:29:39 --> 00:29:49

a green scar, like a post bruise or a cut. But if he if he had Leila, there was a green scar or something in my eye. And what was that from?

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

Y'all remember

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

when her husband punched her, says how much she's imagined like the scar? She had bruising from the from the hit

00:30:00 --> 00:30:44

But the scar had remained. Even some time now has passed and the prophets Isilon asked me Maha the hill hollyrock. Behind Nikki, what is that? What is the green scar that is in your eye? So I said to him, go to the Zoji in Europe a to female Yolonda mo Camaron waka ifI Hijri, fellow tamani, that I told my husband that I saw the moon rise over high bar and then I came into my home and into my lap. And when I said that, he struck me and he said to the dean, medica Yathrib, you desire the king of yesterday. So, she says, as I'm talking to the prophets lie, Selim, she actually describes that there was one feeling of apprehension that remains

00:30:46 --> 00:30:51

that the prophets lie Selim. I mean, technically killed my father, and he killed my husband's.

00:30:52 --> 00:31:31

Right, she loved her father. And she understood her husband, obviously, but her father, she specifically so she's saying Subhanallah, even inside of herself, that that was the one thing that still remained inside of her towards the prophets lie Selim. And it says, if the prophets lie, some new and the prophets lie, some says yes, Sofia, in bakkie, Allah Akbar, Allah, Al Arab, with Allah Allah, that your father literally turned the Arabs on against me. I mean, he did this and he did that. And he's saying that this is what your father did, meaning I had no choice at the end of the day, but to fight your tribe in this regard. And so she said the prophets lie some said that had the

00:31:31 --> 00:32:08

hubba dotcom enough see until whatever hard feelings I had left me. So I had some hard feelings just about my father and my husband in particular my father in this regard. And she said, the prophets lice and I'm Can I tell you what Lilia, like he was apologizing and so he doesn't have to do that. So the lights on but explaining the situation this is an ugly reality. Her father literally tried to kill the prophets lie someone committed treason. So she said until all of that left my heart from the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam. And her heart had nothing but love towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So this is a human element as well, that she's describing the hesitation

00:32:08 --> 00:32:23

that existed within her that had left her. Now something interesting happens here. The Prophet SAW Salem, the next day, he comes out of his, his tent with Sophia or the Allahu anha. And he sees a boy up on Saudi holding a sword.

00:32:25 --> 00:32:27

Prophesy prophesize I'm looking at W.

00:32:28 --> 00:32:32

Say, what are you doing? W looks at the profit side. Somebody goes Allahu Akbar.

00:32:33 --> 00:32:35

Kembara why

00:32:37 --> 00:32:42

can you all guess? He was worried that Sofia was going to do something to the prophets lie Selim.

00:32:43 --> 00:33:17

So he was waiting outside the house of the prophets lie some with a sore just in case. And he said, Yes, Allah I was circling around. I was just making sure just being sure that nothing happens to you. Jada's little Allah fell while he caught all sorts of lies Allah Azza wa Rahmatullah is I'm starting to laugh and he said Hydra head on in sha Allah like, okay, like you're good does that Allah Hydra like he understands who is doing this from a place of sincerity and from a saucepot and they're genuinely worried about the prophets, lice. And then they're like, is the prophet slice I'm being set up for some sort of a counter attack, and then you start to see once again, how every

00:33:17 --> 00:33:25

single thing now that goes wrong is going to be blamed on Sofia or the love of Thailand. So the Prophet saw my son's camel

00:33:26 --> 00:34:06

was exhausted. Camels get exhausted too. By the way. This was an exhausting expedition and exhausting journey. And it was a smaller one. It was only meant to carry one person. So the prophets lie some in Sofia Radi Allahu Allah on the camel and it was exhausted. It was malnourished at that point in the journey in the battle, and it couldn't hold the Prophet sighs I'm in Sofia. So it stumbled and it fell forward. And the prophets lie some in Sofia. Like they slipped. And so the Sahaba turned away quickly from Sofia, will the Allahu anha and at that point, what do you think they start to say? They say Oh, my God, like he's cursed. Something's happening so the prophets lie

00:34:06 --> 00:34:38

Selim. So they actually the women look towards the prophets I said I'm and they said, Allah Who yah hoo dia May Allah take away the Jewish woman distance the Jewish woman from the Prophet slice I'm so they're blaming Sophia all the Allah and how they're saying there's a curse, she's trying to kill him. She's trying to do this. He's trying to do that. And it shows you again that this is going to take a lot from them. And imagine the test for Sophia will the Allah I'm hearing all of this essentially her Islam has been questioned her intentions are being questioned with the Prophet sallallahu sallam. They make their way back to Medina and in fact, they suffer the return of

00:34:38 --> 00:34:48

suffering. He won't he won't be doing the Rabina hammy Dune is taken from this particular narration when they returned back to Medina. So they come back to Medina.

00:34:49 --> 00:34:59

And the story of Sofia really shows you the human side by the way of all of the actors in the situation. Sofia are the Allahu Taala Anna obviously comes back and it's

00:35:00 --> 00:35:14

And the news has reached Medina that the prophets lie some has married the daughter of Aiden rocked up the guy that's been trying to have his killed this entire time and that plotted with the Mexicans to have his wiped out. The prophets lie some is coming back and he's married to his daughter.

00:35:15 --> 00:35:37

So there's a lot of apprehension in Medina. All right, Sophia, all the law Allahu Taala and her needs file to model the Allah hotel Anna Anna and she gifted her some of her golden earrings and something else. Some of the women that were with faulty model the Allahu anha and then the women of the unsought went to see Sophia or the Allah I'm Han Which woman do you think wants to see her really really quick?

00:35:38 --> 00:35:39

I saw the lawn

00:35:40 --> 00:35:54

you already know you have to know your mother I saw the Alana is a bolt straight to the house. And she covered herself in a way that she you know, hoping she wouldn't be recognized as someone that was going out she just she said I wanted to go look at her.

00:35:55 --> 00:36:22

Right see who she is. See what she's about. So I settled the law on her rushes quickly to see Sophie out of the Allahu anha with some of the Saudi women there greeting her but you know it's not really a fully greeting right it's kind of like let's feel her out of it. So the profits licensees issue and I saw the alarm on her didn't say anything she didn't say that she went to see Sophie or anything like that the profit slice and I'm says to each other the lower Anna so what did you find?

00:36:24 --> 00:36:52

What did you think? And inshallah the Allah answered right at Yahoo de I saw another Jewish woman and the prophets lie Selim. Look, this is the justice of the prophets license, and this is our mother Aisha. Despite her jealousy at the moment the prophets lie some says that's actually how the Isha forgot estimate. Don't say that. Oh, actually, like you're gonna insult her, you're gonna put her down. Don't call Don't say that. She's not really a Muslim that I just saw another Jewish woman because she's actually she's become a Muslim. So I should know the law and I never insulted her with that again.

00:36:53 --> 00:37:08

That's not the case of everyone else. Right. So the law on her will never bring this up again. And you have to understand not just the particular dynamics here Subhanallah in Medina and I can't wait till we talk about Nkrumah in every job.

00:37:09 --> 00:37:46

What's it like when you have the son of Abuja, * now on your side? What's it like when you have Hinze been Teresa who did what she did on your side? Right? We remember one battle the Allahu Taala and who walked by Abu Sufyan and Mecca. And they said to Abu Sofia, and that the swords of Allah didn't eat did not reach the necks of the enemies of Allah and Abu Bakar will be allowed to and who you know tried to stop bill out of the Allah Tala and who from saying that I modeled the Allah I know from saying, look, it's human nature here. There is a process here that's going to unfold between them and some of the hard feelings that exist but I should hold the alarm on had did not use

00:37:46 --> 00:38:26

that particular term towards her to insinuate that she's just one of the enemies and that she's, you know, she's not even a real Muslim. Again. However, it did happen a few times with her until the Allahu taala. And her were that was the insult that was lobbied that was leveled towards her that some of the ways the profit slice and I'm said to her no economic Rasulullah he's already sort of a Manhattan national as well as your webinar to me that we are more honorable, more beloved to the profit slice and then her because we are his wives, and we're also his cousins, not his cousins in the visit, like first cousins here. But we're from the same tribe. We're from the same people as the

00:38:26 --> 00:38:37

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And one time the prophets lie, some finds Sophia will the Allahu Taala and her in tears and says, Why are you crying? And she says that one of the wives of the prophets lie some called her

00:38:39 --> 00:38:47

Bintelli hoodia, right, the daughter of a Jewish woman or a Jewish woman. And look how the prophets lie. Some comfort her it's one of the most beautiful things that you find from our messenger sites on him.

00:38:48 --> 00:39:00

He says to her, what do they have to say about you? When your father is Harun? Your uncle is Musa and your husband is Mohamed Salah honey Hilson

00:39:01 --> 00:39:42

who's more noble than you? You are the descendants of heroin and he has said I'm your father is the prophet how to when it is Salam. Your uncle is the Prophet Musa alayhis salam and your husband is the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comforting her and assuring her that there is nothing that that holds her back. In this regard, Sophia will the Allahu Taala and her also one of the things that we find from her the famous incident of HLD Allah and breaking the plate. No one actually alone walked in her insecurity was her food. She broke the plate in front of the men and one of the prophets lie some say a lot of Macomb Your mother has become jealous some of the

00:39:42 --> 00:40:00

narrations say that it was Sofia on the low end and Sophia was a good cook. So another reason for Isha to not like her in that regard. They actually do become very close. Later on, within the seal of the prophets lie Selim. Now of the most famous instance with Sofia will the Allahu Taala and her is the fame

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

This term in the house off he or she is Sophia what is the context of this particular story? Sophia will be Allah and His home was built not directly next to the message of the Prophet slicin um but basically a little bit behind where the Hydra as we know them are so it's a little bit of a distance compared to the house of for example actual on the lower end which is where the prophets lie some is buried to date, and Sofia will the Allah hotel and hundreds and this is through multiple narrations that they went to visit the prophets lie some of the wives of the Prophet slice I went to visit the Prophet slice I'm an errand T calf and Ramadan. So in the last two nights of Ramadan, they went to

00:40:42 --> 00:40:57

visit the prophets lie Selim while he was in arity camp in the masjid and when they got up to leave the prophets lie some said to Sophia that God had to and sorry for Mark don't rush let me walk you home.

00:40:58 --> 00:41:26

Now when he says that of the context, what can what can a be to haffi daddy Osama that her home was in the home of Osama what that means is the scholars mentioned is that it's a home that was some of those a little the alarm on who will inhabit later so the narrator's understood where exactly that was, but it wasn't connected directly to the masjid. So the prophesy ism says, Let me walk you home. It's late at night. And this is again from the noble manners of the prophets. I seldom that he's going to walk her home

00:41:27 --> 00:41:49

so that nothing happens to her and that she feels safe obviously, and feels a sense of warmth and the prophets like Selim had that way with all of those that were close to him. So the prophets I said walked with her for left Yahoo, Raju, Lani, middle Ansari. So two men from the inside they saw the prophets like some walking with Sofia. So they looked at the Prophet sai center, and they started walking really fast.

00:41:50 --> 00:41:51


00:41:52 --> 00:42:04

Right, you know, what did we just see? We don't want to know what we just saw. We're just gonna keep on walking. So the prophets lie Selim. He calls them back and he says to add a Talia come back both of you come here.

00:42:05 --> 00:42:09

And he says in the house Sophia. This is Sophia my wife.

00:42:10 --> 00:42:48

And they say Subhan Allah He also Allah Subhana Allah. What do they mean by that? Of course we didn't assume anything bad of you, O Messenger of Allah Subhana Allah Allah Allah Subhana Allah and the prophets like Selim says in the shape Lana yesterday Miguel insam Maduro Damn that look, the shape on flows through the through a person, the way that blood flows through your veins. So I just wanted to root out any thoughts that you have in your mind that I was doing anything inappropriate, that was walking with someone who's not on to me, someone who's not related, so that wouldn't put anything in your new force and yourselves and Subhanallah this hadith has so much fit in it it has

00:42:48 --> 00:43:02

so much jurisprudence that's taken from it even in the the titles of the chapters of Hadith in Al Bukhari, Babs Jana to Marathi Zoda VRTX Caffee the chapter of a woman visiting her husband while he's inerrancy capsule that's 150 ruling

00:43:03 --> 00:43:47

in Sahih Muslim but they are no Anna who used to have boo Lehmann ro er Hollyanne BM Ratan. What can Zoltan Omarama LA who? That it's the chapter of the recommendation of a person who is seen with a woman who is his wife or who is Muharram to him, but people don't know that to basically make things clear. So when someone says to you, it's a famous expression Badman in the house, Sophia, she is Sofia, what that means is just make things clear. Don't let people doubt certain, certain things about you, that it's good for you to clear your name if people start to think a certain thing about you, and to not let room leave room for the shape on to think certain thoughts. This is so relevant

00:43:47 --> 00:44:08

in the age of social media, by the way, like if you post something that's ambiguous, that could suggest something, just make things clear. Right, try to make things clear, so that people do not assume certain things about you and this is from the famous incidence of Sofia, or the Allahu Taala and have now inhabited with that we see another

00:44:09 --> 00:44:29

another way in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam shows her a particular type of love and care in his expression, and that is that an edited with that when the Prophet slicin went out with his family. And so all of our mothers went out with the Prophets lie some on the farewell hedge that Sophia will the Allahu Taala and has camel took off

00:44:30 --> 00:44:36

all right, so imagine they're in the middle of the journey. And Sophia or the Allahu Allah has camel just takes off.

00:44:37 --> 00:44:40

So Sophia or the Allah and just breaks down into tears.

00:44:41 --> 00:45:00

Subhan Allah is one of the most beautiful forms of Rama of mercy that you see from the Prophets lie some in a society where affection was a it was shameful. What are you doing right how do you show consideration from Benin will stolid the prophets lie some held the entire army because I shall do

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

Hello and I lost her necklace.

00:45:02 --> 00:45:42

And now the province license is gonna hold everyone back because Sofia will the law and her lost her camel and the profit slice walks to Sofia or the Allah. For Jana yum Sacco do more i habia de Salallahu Salam and the profit slice I'm starting to wipe her tears with his hands on the lion Salem and started to calm her down. It's okay, I'll get you another camel. Don't worry. And he and he gave her love, love and care and affection until she calmed down while the Allahu Taala Allah Subhan Allah what I mean think about the impact that this has on the psyche of the people to see their Prophet's life and I'm showing that much consideration to her on all the Allahu Taala Anna in this

00:45:42 --> 00:46:16

regard. Right? And the prophets lie Selim holds the entire army once again until the prophets lie some settles, Sophia to the alo Tada and there is a narration that Xena what are the Allahu Taala and her that the prophets I'm told Xena will be allowed to let Sofia ride with her and she said something very similar along the lines of You know all you know, I'm not going to give Alia hoody I'm not going to give her any room on my camel. But the narration has many problems to its sentence. So I won't I mean, it's not even worth quoting in this context, just to say Sophia will be allowed to Allah and lost her camel and the prophets lie some held up everyone and hedges did with that.

00:46:17 --> 00:46:21

Now, in that process, Sophia will the Allahu Taala and her

00:46:22 --> 00:46:47

obviously delays basically the process of the Hajj and the process of everything that's taking place in that regard. You also find many of the narrations of Sofia or the Allah and having missed were there too often due to her purification. And I installed the Allah and of course missed a lot for the Father. So we've seen the difference in how the prophets lie. Some dealt with the two based upon their circumstances and we take some of the fix from that. Now,

00:46:48 --> 00:47:32

what are the main qualities of Sofia Radi Allahu Allah. So we talked about God a vicar. We talked about Xena. You know, God, it was a woman who remembered Allah frequently. Xena Radi Allahu Anhu was a woman of tahajjud a woman of praying PM, have some of the Allahu anha so 101 fasting and praying all night, right? So you see all these beautiful qualities, what is Sofia's superpower, if you will, and this is beautiful. Remember that have you Rahim Allah says cannot Sofiya to that Hillman lower chi. Sophia was a woman of great empathy, great nobility, but really a heart of gold. A woman of great empathy, a woman of great care, she was very soft all the Aloha Santa Ana, very nurturing,

00:47:32 --> 00:47:51

very loving. And that was something that the prophets of Allah who it was sent him How does it quality as well of course the prophets lie some had that hidden that forbearance that softness, that empathy towards his Alma towards people, Sophia are the Allahu Taala and her manifested it in a very beautiful way. And so when the prophets lie Selim was dying,

00:47:52 --> 00:48:32

Sophia or the Allahu Taala and her What did she do? She started to cry as well. She saw the Prophet slice them in pain. And she says well Allah He nnB Allah lower did to an allele Becca be from a fever Meza as Raju sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So for of Surah Hoonah so basically what the narration says is that when she saw the prophets I'm in pain. She said, you know, feeling pain herself Oh Messenger of Allah, how I wish that your pain was my pain. I wish that what is happening to you right now was happening to me instead. So what are the otherwise the prophets like some do they started to roll their eyes and started like, Oh my God, here she goes again.

00:48:33 --> 00:49:12

Right? That's literally what a amaza means, right? Like they roll their eyes and are just like, here she goes again with that love and care for the prophets. Like some like even here, she has to say that and as if she was saying it, to make a scene right to just simply say it as an expression or to show a particular favor with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The prophets lie some is between life and death and the profit slice and I'm says Midna which literally means wash your mouth, sell, wash your mouth, sell. And they said, when he yells Allah, what is it a messenger of Allah? And he said, Because of your mockery of Sofia Wallahi in the * asada. I swear by Allah,

00:49:12 --> 00:49:44

she's telling the truth. It's not fair for you to mock her. She's telling the truth. And that testimony, imagine how beloved it was to Sofia, well, the Allahu Taala and had that the prophets lie. Some says in his last days, while Allah He in the handle sadhika She's a truthful woman, like she's been through a lot in these last two years, because there's a constant question mark over her as a convert, and particularly from one of the hostile Jewish tribes, and particularly the daughter of who am knocked up who was hated to the Muslims.

00:49:46 --> 00:50:00

But it's not fair. And the Prophet sighs some missing Allah here in the Hello sadhika She's a truthful woman, which is a major form of praise. And one of the things that Sophia or the Allahu Taala and her narrates is that home to eat and to be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:50:00 --> 00:50:39

I'm for call to enter who lays them in as logic I had an Illa Caraga oh actually ever said I said to the prophets like some all of your wives, have someone close to them, they have family, they have someone to take care of them after you pass away. But she says, mentor CB, who are you going to put? You know, in charge of me like who's, who's going to care for me after you pass away? And the prophets like Selim said also YubiKey Illa Ali Radi Allahu taala. And also he put her under the care of Ali, which is that you remain in my family amongst Allah Bates, and you will be taken care of and it it'll be a low tide and who is in charge of your affairs. So basically, the prophet slice I'm

00:50:39 --> 00:51:00

placing her under the special care of ally and assuring her that it's not like now that I die, everyone's going to turn on you. Right? The OMA is going to turn on Sophia, about the Allahu Taala and because of who she is, so she lives after the prophets like Selim, and Subhan Allah even what's narrated after the death of the Prophet slice m has to do with the suspicion about her.

00:51:01 --> 00:51:04

So the next narration we have of her

00:51:05 --> 00:51:07

is in the time of honorable barbital, the Allahu taala. And

00:51:09 --> 00:51:32

a servant girl, a God of Sofia called the Allahu Anhu comes to Hammermill Hopital the Allahu Taala and who, who is the Khalifa at the time? And he says and she says to Omar, in Sofia, to Hibou cept Sofia still observes the Sabbath. I just want you to know I'm her servant girl. Sophia still observes the Sabbath or tastic really hood

00:51:33 --> 00:51:52

and she still has her ties with the Jews of Medina. Like as if to again to once again place that suspicion around Sophia or the Allahu Taala Anna, and to make it out to be that she's got something up her sleeve. So amaro the Allahu Taala and her goes to Sofia will be allowed Santa Ana to ask her about what the Serbian girl said.

00:51:53 --> 00:51:53


00:51:55 --> 00:52:34

she responds. And she says, As for a cept. As for the Sabbath, I'm acept phelim or Hibou Mundo Abdullah Nila Hoovy. Allah joumana said I never loved the Sabbath after Allah azza wa jal gave me Joomla in exchange for the Sabbath, so that's a complete lie. I don't observe the Sabbath. And I instead observe a Joomla I observe Friday and she says, What Amelia hood as for the Jews of Medina, for in leafy hem Rahima for Anna RC Roja. They're still my family.

00:52:35 --> 00:52:42

And so I uphold the ties of kinship with my family. And I uphold mercy and love towards them. This is a part of our deen

00:52:43 --> 00:52:45

so Subhanallah look at the justice of Islam

00:52:46 --> 00:53:23

what that says you know was the Latin was the okra I'm not going to mistreat them because of what happened in Hebron and what happened with those three tribes. That's still my family so those that had nothing to do with all of that they don't deserve to be mistreated it's my responsibilities still treat them with that Rama and our model the Allah Tada and who said absolutely right like all model the Allahu Anhu is not going to say to her but no you have to cut them off and no you have to do this no you have to this is Islam This is the dean of justice or religion of justice. So then Sophia law the law and her after a model the law and believes she calls the god she calls the young

00:53:23 --> 00:53:32

girl she says my Hamelech Jana masala tea Why don't you do that? Why would you try to create a friction between me and ammeter Momineen

00:53:33 --> 00:53:36

so what did she say? What are your kids say if they get in trouble

00:53:37 --> 00:53:39

if they're smart they'll say a shape on

00:53:40 --> 00:53:50

I didn't do it the shape on did it I just was overcome by the shape on the shape on told me to do it. Oh, Sophia, Sophia are the Allahu Taala and has said that her beef aunty

00:53:51 --> 00:53:53

go you are free

00:53:54 --> 00:54:00

now what's really interesting here is that this is actually found in the chapters of axon of excellence towards those that harm you

00:54:02 --> 00:54:10

if someone that's under your mercy, a captive or a servant or someone says something like that to you at that time, I mean, you're gonna discipline punished, right?

00:54:11 --> 00:54:48

So follow the law and her responded with Exxon with excellence and she said, You know what, you're free to go. So it's pardon and forgiveness and on top of that, you're free to go. So this is the highest level of testimony to Sophia or the Allahu taala. And we also find with our mother Sophia Radi Allahu at Santa Ana, that when the fitna of Earth normal the Allahu Anhu happens so again, you start to see empathy you start to see the love and the care that this woman has and her special heart when the fifth never is normal, the low tide and who happened that Sophia well the Allahu anha tried to go to the house of Earth mammal the Allahu Anhu herself with food and drink, despite her

00:54:48 --> 00:55:00

vulnerability. Now keep in mind the people of fitna that were surrounding the house of a rich man, they had no mercy no mercy on anyone no mercy on the men no mercy on the women no mercy on the children. No

00:55:00 --> 00:55:14

Mercy on anyone. These were youth that were supposedly driven by their religion. I mean, they were, again, they claimed to be very religious people, but somehow founded in themselves to mistreat, even the wives of the Prophet slice Allah.

00:55:16 --> 00:55:32

And Sophia Radi Allahu Anhu was small in stature. And she didn't have anyone with her. And she goes out on her camel to the house of Earth mama the law in the midst of the fitna carrying her food in her drink. And she said that a young man walked up and he smacked the face of the camel.

00:55:33 --> 00:55:58

Not her, but smack the face of the camera to basically turn around and leave. So I understood that that was a warning that they would hit me next, or they would harm me, if I try it again. So Subhanallah Her home was close enough to his mom or the Allahu Taala and home that while the harsh urban minimum Zelia eudemons erythema, she basically put like a wood

00:56:00 --> 00:56:34

almost a bridge of sorts, she erected some sort of a structure from the rooftop of her home to the rooftop of Earth mama the Allah Tala Anhu. And somehow she was transferring a mat with our arm as long as she could she was trying to send food and drink over to Earth mom will be allowed to unhook to help him, even through that plank, like tilting it over. So that would go into the top of the house of Earth man, while the Allahu Anhu until the people have fitted them, they cut that off as well. So first, they showed a little bit of empathy. Like, you know, look at the sad state right, the wife of the prophets, I was trying so hard to help him when he's under siege. And eventually,

00:56:35 --> 00:57:08

they cut that off, as well. So this is really the quality of Sophia or the allow Tyler and her that shines the quality of a helm the quality of empathy, the quality of love and concern that she had for the Prophet's life and that she had for the Muslims in general. And that was a softness that was beloved to the Prophet slice them. And we learned so much of our ethics from the story. And the last thing Subhanallah in regards to ethics is Sophia will be allowed to her and her when she was passing away. She had sold her Hijra her home for 100,000

00:57:10 --> 00:57:11


00:57:12 --> 00:57:15

And so she had a lot of money because she sold her home basically.

00:57:17 --> 00:57:58

And she had a brother Canada, her own Yahudi she had a brother who was still Jewish. And she maintained her family relationships. So out of that Alayhi and use Lima, faith. She said to him, Listen, become Muslim, and you'll inherit. If you become Muslim, you'll inherit forever, but he refused to he didn't become Muslim, for Al Assad level, Be thorough Tell me. So she gave or she made in her well, CEA, that the 1/3 of your will see the 1/3 of your will of your inheritance can go towards whatever you want, right. So you have the two thirds that are by the equation and the 1/3 That's for whatever you want. So Subhanallah out of her love for her brother out of her love for her

00:57:58 --> 00:58:40

family, she's still executed her will to be from that 1/3 to go towards him. And this is also fixed, by the way, the you know, willing from that 1/3 towards someone who's not Muslim and Muslim to one who's not Muslim from that 1/3. Right and to her family. And in one narration, by the way, it's mentioned that she also willed 1000 dinars to shallow, the low Tyler and so on Sophia, we're close at the time of her death. And it also says in one narration living in LA, to a nephew of hers, and that that nephew, when he heard about that, by the time he heard, the 1000 dinars had already been squandered. And actually a lot of time, and he was upset. So I actually law, the law and he said,

00:58:40 --> 00:59:19

give him the 1000 that she gave to me, because that's something that she promised to him, so to fulfill that. And in fact, that actually settled the law and he was asked, there was objection, how could we let from the household of the prophets lie Selim, this wealth go towards the Jewish relatives of Sophia, it's not going to go towards the Muslims, how can we let this happen? And I shall have the Allahu Taala and her told them to fear Allah and to honor Sophia will the Allah and His request so much can be taken from this right Subhanallah look at again, the justice that Adam the ethics, the mercy that we find in Islam, and inshallah Allah and her praises her character, and

00:59:19 --> 00:59:46

they prayed janazah on her in El Medina and Sophia law the law of Thailand is buried in Alba clear where our mothers the pastor in Medina, are buried for all the Allahu Taala and Hermia last parents, I'd be pleased with her and have mercy on her and join us with her and with all of our mothers and with our beloved prophets like Selim, Phil for a dose of Allah, Allah Allah Amin Charlottetown. I'll go ahead and I will take questions. We only have a few minutes before a lot the next show

00:59:48 --> 00:59:48


01:00:04 --> 01:00:09

So the question is how did she embrace Islam when her father was a staunch enemy to the prophets lie some of her husband and things of that sort.

01:00:10 --> 01:00:46

Obviously, these are complex dynamics. She is situated in a household that's literally trying to kill the profit slice on them. But at the same time, she witnessed her father saying, who, uh, who he is him. He is the prophet of Allah. So she knew because her dad said he knew that he's the Prophet of Allah. So imagine as a child, you're growing up and you're told we're here, because the prophet of God is going to come out here. Yeah, any foreigner who can afford to have not only they will know Him the way they knew their own children, unmistakable, right? And then as soon as he pops up, your father who taught you that we're here for the messenger of God, tells you that he is the

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

messenger of God, but we're gonna fight him.

01:00:49 --> 01:01:23

So in her heart, she's saying, I already knew. And she already felt that connection. So she said, I longed for Islam before you called me to it. She loved the prophets. I saw them as a prophet of Allah. But she's also giving the human side that the only thing left inside of her after Hiva was that the prophets lie Selim effectively killed her father. Right, even if it was fully justified. And it was in the capacity of a battle that the province lies on didn't want to have in the first place but that's what happened. And the prophets lie some removed that that heart feeling that she had in her chest so she's saying I long for Islam before you can call me to.

01:01:25 --> 01:01:27

Any other questions? Yeah.

01:01:36 --> 01:01:55

The tawaf okay. So basically, this is a lesson for your hedge. May Allah azza wa jal allow us to do hedge to have an accepted alum, I mean, so there's the lawful hedge, which is the throw off off of the Father. And that is a raccoon, that's a pillar of the hedge, and there's falafel Wahdat which is the farewelled off,

01:01:57 --> 01:02:42

which is between sunnah and wajib depending on the schools of thought, but that the last thing you should do when you leave Mecca is another thought off right? Without the velocity father, your hedges invalid. So I installed the Allahu anha. Due to her menses was unable to observe too often the father Sofia was unable to observe too often without the prophets lie some delayed Aisha Radi Allahu Allah until she could do to offer the father well with Sofia the Prophet slice and I'm simply said we go back now meaning there is no penalty that was due on Sophia law the law on her for missing to offer without nor did the prophets lie some have to hold everyone up for her to be able

01:02:42 --> 01:03:02

to do to offer the data so it shows you the status of to offer without versus to offer the father to offer the father is a mandatory pillar. A lot to offer with that is either sooner or it's of a lesser status of being mandatory right to where a person would pay a compensation or offer a sacrifice if they're unable to do it for any reason alone

01:03:03 --> 01:03:09

and you'll forget that before hedge but hopefully you know some somewhere it'll come back and Shala any other questions?

01:03:11 --> 01:03:11


01:03:16 --> 01:03:20

How is the ex husband able to interpret the dream Allah who I know

01:03:21 --> 01:03:29

we will never know when we will never ask him maybe he had they just maybe he just knew so I mean dream interpretations obviously he's a science right?

01:03:30 --> 01:03:55

So perhaps he simply knew something about the moon or there was a common connection between the prophets like some and the moon or perhaps I mean like there are so many possibilities maybe they all had a dream on the prophesy some came to Medina about the moon rising right that's literally thought about through Elena right. But this was a frequent dream right of the prophets like some as the moon but for whatever reason he knew it right away and that's how he reacted to her in that situation by her testimony

01:03:57 --> 01:03:58

Great question though. Yeah

01:04:03 --> 01:04:04

they're in the

01:04:05 --> 01:04:18

they're in the for the captive is still one cycle, or pregnancy, which is one of the dramas of Islam. But even then there's a render for the captive which was unheard of before it's now that there's a waiting period at that time.

01:04:20 --> 01:04:20

What's that?

01:04:23 --> 01:04:26

One cycle or the pregnancy? Yeah.

01:04:28 --> 01:04:28


01:04:31 --> 01:04:32

Can you raise your voice I'm sorry sis. Okay.

01:04:47 --> 01:04:49

So good question. So it was Yeah.

01:04:57 --> 01:05:00

So in general so the question is, was this

01:05:00 --> 01:05:08

fishin towards her because of who her father was or wasn't because she was Jewish right was it was an element of racism or uncertainty I guess, like a tribalism towards,

01:05:09 --> 01:05:12

towards the Jews of Medina.

01:05:13 --> 01:05:52

Obviously there is an element of both, there is no doubt about it, but the prophets like some is correcting both. So all of the general instructions of the prophets lie some against those types of expressions is something that, that, that lands in multiple occasions, and especially in the defense of Sofia, well, the Allahu taala, and especially the prophets, I'm taking her heritage and making it a plus, rather than a negative a pro rather than a con right that you shouldn't be ashamed of your heritage. Nor are you great despite your heritage. No, you know, Allah azza wa jal has blessed you with what you have of your heritage, and you simply perfected it by marrying the prophets lice and

01:05:52 --> 01:05:53

I'm so don't be ashamed of it.

01:05:54 --> 01:06:05

There are multiple narrations of this regard. And again, you have to consider the context you've got to consider the history the very real political atmosphere that's that they're living in in those moments, right.

01:06:06 --> 01:06:36

One of them is a blob. No, I'm gonna run us. Well, the low tide and Homer realized that there were Jews who became Muslims. And there were Jews that were not hostile that still live there. Right. So some of them were neighbors, like the Prophet slice on visiting his Jewish neighbors child when he was sick. And the prophets I said, I'm going there, and he tells the child as he's dying, c'est la ilaha illAllah. And the child looks at his dad, and he says, other adult Carson, listen to a little possum.

01:06:38 --> 01:07:19

Right? There is a blob of mama Ross when he has his meals and he divides his meals and he sends food over to his Jewish neighbor. And they say, your Jewish neighbor, he says the prophets lie son, I'm when he said, you know, whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day that you came, Jarrah should be noble to his neighbor, he didn't specify Muslims there that includes your non Muslim neighbors as well. So there's a lot to grow out of here, right? And a lot in terms of the slogans of Janelia the most of the slogans of the days of ignorance, honestly existed between tribes between tribes themselves, right, putting down tribes that were perceived to have certain things associated with

01:07:19 --> 01:07:57

them, and so on, so forth. So it's really between the tribes of Mecca, that that usually reared its ugly head. And of course, even without all the allowance, I know, when the lateral the Allahu Anhu sends the caribou some of the things that were said, were awful about his skin color, some of the racism that was used. So the prophets like some understood he had a work in progress. His community was a work in progress, and it shows you the human side as well. That you know, sometimes those insults were going to come out sometimes those transgressions were going to come in the profit slice and I'm was always just like the prophets lie. Some didn't play favorites, but also realize the

01:07:57 --> 01:07:59

prophets lie. Some never.

01:08:01 --> 01:08:40

He never like broke the person that that fell. But instead he corrected the transgression. So for example, when he showed the allowance to Anna, when she made that comment, the prophets I said, No, she's upset, alright, she's, she's, she is who she is. She's, she's, you know, someone who deeply loves the prophets lie Selim. And that's where that jealousy comes from. When she said, All I saw was at Yahoo do the prophets lie, some did not say stuff, but Allah cafetera and whoever says this to their sister, or their brother than the it's going to come prophesy some corrector and so the Ayesha not that. I get that you're mad, don't go that far. She's Muslim. Right? So the province is,

01:08:40 --> 01:08:57

um, has a way of correcting people, which is also redemptive and helps grow the community rather than continuing to to break people and to fracture them even further. Because I can look at Alright, last question. Anyone has the last question Yeah.

01:09:39 --> 01:09:59

Right, so number one, if there's criticism about the marriage of the prophets licenses, Sophia in the you have to realize that this type of criticism relies solely on an ignorance of history, and then playing into present day stereotypes. So this criticism didn't actually exist when the prophets lie some was alive. Like the enemies of the prophets lie some did not bring up the marriage of Sophia or the law.

01:10:00 --> 01:10:15

Santa Ana, as a means to criticize the prophets lie Selim. Because in fact what the prophets lies on did was looked at as noble. He gave her a choice, to be free and to go back. And when the Prophet slice and marry Sophia will be allowed to Allah and her think about the redemptive qualities,

01:10:16 --> 01:10:25

the impact that that has on a society as well, fractured society, right. So that's number one. Number two,

01:10:26 --> 01:11:07

the biblical laws, the laws as they exist in the TelaDoc today, are far harsher. And what is attributed to the prophets of the Old Testament is beyond what we would accept as Muslims for them. Right so take their word it has Salam, King David, what is attributed to that word that is Salam, biblically, we would never accept as Muslims. But there is no moral ground to criticize the prophets lie Selim, right? I mean, literally, you have people dispatching their own commanders, I mean, what's attributed to the rule that Instagram is awful, right, and he's a prophet, and he's upheld but dispatching his own commander so he can take his wife and things of that sort that are just

01:11:07 --> 01:11:31

very, very unbefitting, of a prophet of Allah. So the prophets lie Selim clearly has a, he not only take something that's morally acceptable, but that's morally superior, by the standards of his time. And even an objective observer today, looking at history would say, this is a noble, a noble trait of the prophets license, if the prophets I send them

01:11:32 --> 01:12:03

wanted her in that way. They just took them as captives at the time, right? But the prophets lie, some freeze God, it'll be a lot of data and a free selfie all the law. And the prophets lie, some does not marry a second wife, until his 50s in a society where people would have 810 1213 and a kangaroo leader of a society would have 20 3040 And there was absolutely no limit whatsoever to those those types of practices at the time. So again,

01:12:04 --> 01:12:40

objectively speaking, historically speaking, there is absolutely no moral ground to criticize the marriage of the Prophet sly center. And if anyone would have brought something against the prophets lie somewhere found something that they could skew, they would have done it at his time. But no one said anything at that time. So how can we even see what others suffering and as we said, When the Prophet sighs I'm married, I'm Habiba. His daughter Alyssa Yan wanted to kill the prophets is somebody he's he was happy because a noble man like the prophets, like some was a noble men who married his daughter. So it relies upon that history. That's the present day stereotypes and

01:12:40 --> 01:12:43

misunderstanding, intentional misunderstanding of the past as well.

01:12:45 --> 01:12:52

Alone. All right, exactly. Well, Hayden, we're gonna go ahead and end now in sha Allah Subhan Allah Muhammad Kashia do Allah Allah Allah TasTAFE required to break with Santa Monica?
