00:00:06--> 00:00:39

Santa Monica de la honey over a carto I was blessed to meet our administrators on our team to LA nano Haman hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen What are they wanting to learn a lot? I mean what are people to learn with tequila? Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik and our decoder so you can Mohammed in Salalah Juan he was selling wine early, he was so happy he was selling to Seaman kathira the brothers and sisters I want to welcome you back to the first and of course inshallah tada we have moved it to Wednesday nights now so please keep that in mind. That Monday night we'll have a reminder inshallah, Wednesday night we will do the first and then on Fridays we will have multiple

00:00:39--> 00:01:25

inshallah tada from the lawn of Valley Ranch Islamic Center. Tonight is a particularly daunting task because the person that I'm covering, beloved urban robot out of the LA hotel is, is not just an incredible companion, but one whose life support story spans so far. And, you know, his entire life story or much of his life story is related to his accepting Islam. And so a lot of the Sahaba that we've been covering, you know, we stop at a certain point because the idea is to, in many ways, give us an image of Mecca as things are developing around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but the story of Bilodeau de la tada and who is poetic for many reasons, it is one of the most well

00:01:25--> 00:02:08

known stories in the oma there are many children who would not be able to give you any incident from the Sahaba except for the incident of belittle the low tide on who he is well known for his struggle, especially as he initially embraced the slump. Now with not With that being said, there is also a fetishizing of below the low tide and who that we should, you know, from now, eliminate if you have not paid attention, most of the Sahaba thus far or a many of them that we have covered, were in fact black and as one title one article was titled, but that is not the almost one black friend. And that's sort of how he's portrayed in many situations, the almost one black friend, he's

00:02:08--> 00:02:58

that guy, right? Except we just finished with the law of town and who was also black. And so maybe it'll be a long time and have an Amen and Z and the list goes on and on. So that's not his special quality. However, there is an element of Bilodeau the law on who overcoming all sorts of impediments in his society in a classist, tribalistic racist environment to become who he became or the Allahu tada and who now as far as this series is concerned, and again, creating the imagery of what is around the prophets lie some as Islam is developing below the lower and who is always associated with Kabbalah, the Alon, so you'll find in books of SIOP often Bilal and hubub together, or you'll

00:02:58--> 00:03:41

find Bilal hubub and sohaib together, and sometimes Mr. Bilal hubub, suhaib, and Amar, and so we haven't covered so havia, which we will in Charlottetown next week. So that's one one element that reflects the early mastaba theme, the early downtrodden ones who accepted Islam and struggled alongside the profits of ally Sam, who this message resonated with and you also find like insight, Muslim actually, badman filati said man was so he would belittle the Allahu taala and whom, you know among Muslim has the virtues of salon beloved and so hate to obviously reflect salon being the first Persian Bilal being the first Abyssinian who was enslaved to accept Islam so hate being the first

00:03:41--> 00:04:30

Roman to accept Islam. So there are different ways that binotto the law and his story is framed. But I want us to think about the the story of Bilaal before Islam because there's something about the message of the Prophet slicin um, that is resonating instantaneously, with people that have been subjugated in the name of false gods, whether those false gods or the idols, or those false gods are the various ideologies and systems that are upheld in Mecca, through which the villas and the kebabs and the Mars and the Sumerians are oppressed. So, let's start off with bilad story to just reflect for a moment and appreciate that he brings together two important sutras villas story, while the

00:04:30--> 00:04:59

Allahu anhu as far as his birth and his coming into the picture starts with sort of the feed, and it ends with sort of the nozzle. How sort of feel reflects the incidents that would cause his mother to be brought into slavery. And then below the allowance had to be raised in slavery in Mecca. And certain muscle in cap is encapsulated best by Bilodeau, the longtime man who's standing on top of the cabinet

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

In fetta, Mecca in the conquest of Mecca calling out Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar. And so first billaudot, the law of Thailand who comes into the picture. The reason why bill out of the law and who grows up in the environment that he grows up in, is because an Abyssinian King from Yemen, who of course we know is a little hot, leads an army from Yemen, to destroy the cabinet and Allah subhanaw taala destroys his army and stuck and amongst those that are captive, below the law of terror, and whose mother hamama who was an Abyssinian Princess, okay, so her mama is captured as a princess and an Amazonian princess taken into slavery, and is married to a BA who is a black Arab

00:05:43--> 00:06:30

slave, okay, a black Arab slave. And so this army is destroyed a battle has army bringing, you know, are seeking to destroy the carrabba is destroyed. And what ends up happening is that the abyssinians that resided in the area are taken as slaves and they largely dwell in such fashion in the society of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and then against Allah how poetic that the next time an army comes to the cabinet. It is the army of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and below the law and who fruto Hades through monotheism stands on top of the Kava declaring Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. So bit out of the a lot of time and who is beloved even robot and he's also beloved and

00:06:30--> 00:07:03

habashi are they allowed to Allah and he was born approximately 10 years after I will feed after that, the year of the of the elephants and of course the year that the Prophet sly someone was born as well. So he was born approximately in the year five at making him a decade younger than the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. What is the description a bit out of the a lot of data and who physically without the law of title and who had an extremely pleasant appearance, he was dark, very dark skin,

00:07:05--> 00:07:50

extremely handsome. He had hazel eyes, he had a lot of hair, and it said that below the low tide and who never balled it, so he had much hair that stayed with him. throughout his entire life, he had a light beard that was barely connected and below the law and he maintained a youthful appearance throughout his entire life they said that there was only some streaks of gray hair in his in his hair and his beard at the end of his life. So an extremely handsome man will be allowed tada and Whoa, a very strong appearance. And I want to introduce this this man will the law of title through an introduction by se who say you know the long title I know in this narration is found in

00:07:50--> 00:08:32

Portuguese Tafseer and swift look man that's a good one we'll say about the law of Thailand who saw a young black man who had internalized some of the racism that was around him and so we just as I said we can't exotic size without or tournament to the almost one black friend. We also should not underestimate the power of you know people that deal with toxic racism and racism is all toxic seeing themselves in the Sahaba of the Prophet slice on them and so sorry didn't will say about the amount of time and he was talking to a young black man and he says to him let them in unlike a password for India who can have been hiding nasty the last two minutes Sudan he said do not feel bad

00:08:32--> 00:09:19

or do not grieve because you are black for barely three of the best people to ever walk the face of the earth were black and he mentioned below and measure and look man may last panel to Allah be pleased with them all village manager and look man and so without the law of Thailand who is a special a special man from the companions of the profit slice and um whose honor even if relegated to one area lives in the oma today. And you know, we see that the prominence of the story of the a lot of title in the name of Bill Otto the law of Thailand in the omas history The Kenya below the water and who is about Abdullah though he never actually had kids according to most accounts, and

00:09:19--> 00:09:59

the the way that bill out of the law teller and who would be insulted of Yunus soda, Oh son of a black woman. This was a way to put below or the low tide on hold down because of his status despite having an Arab father. Okay, because as we said, below the low tide and whose mother was an Abyssinian Princess, and below the low tide and whose father was a black Arab, and in the famous narration with or without, or the low tide I'm saying those words and of course some of the narrations suggesting that was built out of the a lot of time. I know that he said those words to it would make sense because it was a reminder that either

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

Though binotto the amount of time whose father was an Arab, his mother, being an Abyssinian who was enslaved is really what his status was, was reflective of. And so without all the law, himself being a black Arab, saying that to belittle the law of title, or the names being hurled at Villa the insult specific insults are built out of Yemenis soda, Oh son of a black woman is to suggest a lower status in society. Because at the end of the day, tribalism is what reigned supreme in that society. Some of the narrations, they talk about the upbringing of a lot of the a lot of Thailand who and they're they're mostly General, but still I mean, you can take from the the, the obvious facts of

00:10:46--> 00:11:31

Bella's upbringing, enough to, to derive what would have made the message of Islam so attractive to him, it'll be allowed. So below the law on who was born into slavery, he grows up and both of his parents are enslaved. And, you know, it's mentioned in some of the, in the accounts that a lot of the law and who, who loved his mother used to witness his mother being beaten and so just think about the mindset of this young man coming up and seeing his parents subjugated to that cruelty. Now, below the law of Taiwan home, understood that the way to rise was to be enhanced in regards to your skill sets in regards to your techniques in regards to your abilities, and so built out of the

00:11:31--> 00:12:21

law on who would rise to become, you know, one of the favored of the enslaved due to his intelligence due to strength due to his ability, so he wasn't amongst those who would be beaten frequently, he was amongst those that were considered to be amongst the favorites of a noblemen noble by jehadi, standards, omega IGNOU holla at the time, and so binotto be allowed to manhood despite rising in that sense, understands that his status, because of the way that things operate in the society that he is in his status is still one of a slave, despite being one of the favored amongst the slaves of the nobles at the time. Now below the longtime man who embraces Islam, upon

00:12:21--> 00:13:06

hearing of the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam immediately. Now, it's very interesting, because what suggested is that Bilal did not actually hear the call from the prophets lie Selim himself initially, but he actually would have heard it from omiya, complaining about without all the alotta about the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So his master omae of know how love is one of the custodians of the carrabba, the custodians of the idols, he was famous for perfuming, the idols for, for taking care of the carrabba. He's in the ranks of the likes of Abu jehlen others at the time, and, you know, below the low tide, and who would have heard of Islam, either directly from

00:13:06--> 00:13:50

the prophets lie, some are actually through the complaints of omega, and others about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. However, as we mentioned, the narration last week, without all the low tide, and who is considered amongst the first seven that have huddle Islam, that showed or publicly expressed their Islam. So below the law of Thailand who, just like hubub, or the Allahu anhu, hears the message of the Prophet, slice alum, hears the message of toe hate, and it immediately resonates with him. It's probably one of the greatest injustices of the movie, beloved, that came out a few years ago was that it made to hate secondary to the element of justice. However, tauheed was the

00:13:50--> 00:14:35

first the first right that binotto the law of title and who found that resonated with him, I do not and then everything that stems from a hadn't I had everything that stems from the affirmation of that one God is where you find the law, the law of title and finding his dignity and his honor. And that's something that's consistent, even in the famous incident of robbery of normal that Allah has sent us to, or that Allah has sent us to free people from being enslaved to other slaves to being slaves to the Lord of all slaves, and then from the injustice of all other systems to the justice of Islam, and from the constriction of this life to the expense of the hereafter. And so, something

00:14:35--> 00:14:59

about to Hades and what towhees represented, I had represented one god represented, immediately resonated with the law of title, because it is necessarily the case that if you acknowledge the oneness of God, that that puts all of humanity on a singular plane, when you are able to affirm the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala and associate no partners with him whatsoever and that is the case with below the law of time and home.

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

He hears this message and that is the sweetest part of it to him, because that's what he's gonna keep on repeating over and over and over again, one God, one God, one God. And so binotto the allot of time who embraces Islam. And as we said in the story of hubbub, and the story of selenia, Bilal does not have anyone to protect. And his master being a power of the powerful man that he is wants to make an example out of him so that others would not follow suit. And so what does omega do? omega actually puts a collar on below the low tide animal and puts hot iron on him.

00:15:43--> 00:16:28

And he would render him unconscious palates, you know, you find that he used to tie below the law hotel and hook up by his wrists and his ankles. And he would put them out in the sun, from sunrise to sunset, and they would deprive him of water or the Aloha Town Hall. And not only would they deprive him of water, but out of cruelty, they would drip some drops of water on his chest, to torture him further to mentally torture him further. And the louder the louder and who would go days in this situation without sustenance. And omega would tell me louder, the louder I know, because remember, beloved, was one of the favored slaves of omega Listen, just say a lot will is to say

00:16:28--> 00:17:17

their names. And this will end, okay, just say their names. And this will end this torture, we'll end this you know, omiya did not anticipate the resilience of billaudot the allowed time and hope in the face of this humiliation in the face of this torture. So he's saying to him, just say, you know, just just say a lot Alireza just say the names of them, and you will be free. He was not like Abuja demanding sumiya to curse the Prophet. So I set up, he's just demanding billaudot, the Allahu anhu to say a lot will put a lot couldn't erza and below the law, Taylor and who would respond and say I had done one, one, and it would infuriate omega, because omega felt like he was being generous to

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

build out all the a lot of time on him by giving him an easy way out. And so when that did not work, when the dehydration did not work in the torture did not work,

00:17:26--> 00:18:12

how to lead, the next level of cruelty was to take bit out of the allowed time to run home to the sofa, high five, to the hood lumps of five, and they would tie him up. And omiya told them in five, he said, assault him in any way that you want. subpanel I mean, think about how disgusting than the assaults on billaudot the laws and who would have been is not obey them, go ahead and do with him whatever you want, torture him beat him, and salt him, assault him and every way possible to break his spirit. And so he would leave it out of the law of town for days and that way, Bilal still did not give up. It's kind of a lot, you then had the next level of this which was dragging below the

00:18:12--> 00:18:39

law and through the streets. And as they dragged below the law and who through the the pathways of Mecca, they would leave streaks of his blood or the law of town and lashing him, dehydrating him torturing him. And a lot of the a lot of time and still just says a hadn't had One. One. There's a narration about what I thought of NOFA passing by him. And of course, as we mentioned in the story of water,

00:18:40--> 00:19:28

that it does not add up from a timeline perspective that he said to me, that will lie if you kill him, then I will then I will build a shrine for him and confirming I hadn't had to Allah he had the not. But in any case, I mean, this this torture went on for a long time. And I loved him a lot of the time who said that when they were put in the iron chains, and tortured most severely, the only one who would never show his pain was below the low tide. And look at Hernan of Sophie Sevilla, he completely sacrificed himself for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala he completely, you know, removed his knifes he gave it all for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and that's upon whom

00:19:29--> 00:19:59

was revealed will mean a nasty man yesterday enough. Sahaba de Hamada, la Tila or la hora often very bad. And there are those of people who sell themselves seeking means that seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala and Verily Allah subhana wa tada is kind to his servants. So Subhana Allah with a Welbeck yodel the allowance data and when we talked about him, the freeing of the hubbub of the world and the balance of the world when Maria had dinner in the home and never met in Tujunga, in LA

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

Tila, what Hello bill Allah well, so for your law, that there is no one who can compensate double Beckett or the law on home for the money that he was spending for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala all he was doing it for was seeking the pleasure of Allah subhana wa tada and Allah subhanaw taala would, would please Him. And Allah mentions on the other side of that there are those who did not have money to give to free others, they only had themselves to give for freedom into their body of Allah subhana wa tada into slavery to Allah subhana wa Tada. And those are the beloved's of the world who gave himself for Allah subhana wa Tada. And that was all that he had. And so as the

00:20:38--> 00:20:44

torture goes on, for weeks, and then months of abeka, or the Allahu taala, and who

00:20:45--> 00:21:34

constantly pushes omiya, to free Bilal, or to sell him Billa. And omega, once, you know, wants to win this bout of torture. So to omega success is seen below the a lot of time and who crumble under the pressure, and the law, the law and who is not crumbling. And so as time goes on, and above the law, and who comes to me, he says, sell him to me sell him to me, how much do you want name, your price, and omega keeps on putting it off. Finally omega tries to torture below the law and when the most severe way, which is that he has been out of the law of town who tied to the to the hot surface in the desert. And this is a beloved who has now been dehydrated, who has now been starved, who has

00:21:34--> 00:22:22

now been assaulted in every way. And all he says is I had an I had one, one and omega orders that a group of men bring a stone, a huge stone that takes multiple men and as bedeviled the law and who's stretched out in the desert, to put the stone on top of his body. It's panela below the waterline Who says I hadn't had until he goes unconscious. And the story of bilad might have ended there he may have become a Shaheed a martyr, just like so many little the law of Thailand, but little by little the law on who keeps on pushing. And eventually, as omega realizes that this man is hopeless in that I'm not going to get him to relinquish his faith. I've tried every mechanism of torture, and

00:22:22--> 00:23:01

omiya is a man driven by money. Alright, so eventually, he says to a buck, you know what, I'll sell them to you how much 10 will pay us and okiya is a heavier currency at the time they had. They had denims and dinars. And opia is a is a large set a large currency and I forgot the exact measurement of what it would be equivalent to but it's it's not a small amount. And he says to him that I'll sell him to you for 10 years and seminaries and say seven and we'll back it all the law and who does not bargain with the price of Welbeck. It'll the law of town and he says, okay, right away.

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

Now as Rebecca know, the law of Thailand who purchases his freedom, omega says to him,

00:23:09--> 00:23:54

low outlay Tony, Dina, if you would have just given me one Dino, right to show, Rebecca it'll be low on who that Bilaal is cheap, for the low on right to belittle bilad, even after all that he has put him through. And belittle the longtime man who hears obviously, that last word of humiliation from the man that has tortured him for all of these years. And I said, if you would have given me one dinar, I would have given him to you, I will Becca will be allowed to add on who responds and he says will lie. If you would have given him to me only for 100, I would have bought him, I would have purchased this freedom, that Bill adelantado is worth more to us. He's worth more to us than any

00:23:54--> 00:24:29

price that you would have named. And that is a sign of the type of community that built out of the allotted time. And who is joining one that values him on the basis of his love for Allah. I hadn't I had one God, one God, one that values him solely on that basis. And that extols his virtue, because of that, and nothing else. And so below the law of Thailand, who joins the community of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and abubaker acidic or the law of Thailand, and those great people. Now at that point,

00:24:30--> 00:24:32

as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:24:33--> 00:24:59

you know, tries to negotiate through his uncle obatala a means by which he can give data to the leaders of Quraysh You know, when either mohila and some of the leaders of the Quran they say to the prophets lie Selim, look if you get rid of the belaz of the world and the hubs of the world and the slaves of the world will sit with you. And Allah subhanho wa Taala responds with what Tableau did Latina during Obama data

00:25:00--> 00:25:43

Are you ready? Do you know what you do not push away, do not push away. Those that call upon their Lord night and day seeking a loss of antis pleasure that that's not for you to do that the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala is what's going to attain the victory of Allah Subhana hotel. And that's why the prophets lie, some went and he sat with them when the ayah was revealed. And you know, at this point now as you're watching below the altar and Whoa, proceed in the community of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a man who now walks free, and amongst the companions of the prophets lie some and not just that, but he is our master, who was freed by our master, our master who was freed

00:25:43--> 00:26:31

by our master. And, you know, he spoken to in this way, as time goes on, even by the likes of almond hop on the allot of time, think about where the loads are, and who was and where below the low tide and who was and Amato, the longtail and who later on, as he's sitting with hubbub, and he's sitting with banana. And we talked about what the low tide and who asks hubbub, what does he ask Bella says to below, you know, why is it that when you are being tortured, and he refers to him as our master, who was freed by our master, says, How come when you were being tortured? All you said was I hadn't had one one, you know, battle the alarm was response was, if I knew anything about a lot other than

00:26:31--> 00:27:00

one one, that I would have said Subhana Allah, how simple the word La ilaha illa Allah and encapsulated in I had an ad. And Bilal does not know any other names of a las pensado he doesn't call upon Allah with any book, he doesn't have the names of Allah subhanaw taala. memorized all he knows is one one, a hidden ahead. Well, luckily I hadn't had Yeah, Bella, it was just one, one.

00:27:01--> 00:27:43

As time goes on, you know, and there's so much to talk about in regards to the virtues of billaudot, the law teller I know, and I will try my best to get through at least enough of them. Of course, I've done other lectures on billable the law of Thailand, where you can find some of these things elaborated on further. But suffice it to say that below the law of Thailand who would witness every battle and every journey of the prophets lights on with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was always by his side, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam wanted to be left alone, he only allowed below the law of Toronto to be with him, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, you

00:27:43--> 00:28:27

know, was was to prepare himself for any journey, he would inform below the law of time and who first below the law and who was the gatekeeper in the literal and the metaphorical sense with the prophets lie some of the figurative sense he was the gatekeeper to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And he was the closest to the profit slice lm in these journeys throughout. And that is also important to the context of the event, a bit out of the allotted time and who being the first event of the London was eight had a dream, that in Medina, as they were trying to figure out how they were going to institute the call to prayer. And in this dream, he said, a spirit visited me. And I saw a

00:28:27--> 00:29:10

man wearing two green garments with a clapper. And I asked him to sell it to me. And he said, why I told him for prayer. And he said to me, let me share with you a better way. And then he started to recite the event. So I'd love news eight, came to the profit slice of them to tell the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about the dream that he had had, as he was arriving to tell the Prophet slice them about that dream on top of the low tide, I was coming to the profits license to inform him about the very same dream, the dream of the other than the words being chanted out as we hear them for every single Salah. And who does the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam appoint to be the

00:29:10--> 00:29:54

one to say it. It's been a long time I know. Why does the prophets lie some point? bilad? Is it because Bilodeau the Allahu taala on home, you know, is is is a symbol for something as the Prophet slice I'm doing that to say that look, you know, I'm going to uplift below the low tide and who to do this for some reason, no, below the low tide and who deserves to be the one to chant the other than to say la ilaha illAllah standing atop the masjid because below the low tide and who was the one who was saying La, La La La under that rock, and under the most brutal forms of torture, it was the man the the the faith and the certainty of bilateral deal outside of that gains him that honor

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

to say Lalalalala so it was not because of his race. It was in spite

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

His race it wasn't because of his previous status it was, you know, despite it it was because he deserved it. Well, the a lot of time I knew there was going to be no impediment to below the a lot of time being chosen to that, to that position. And below the law no had a strong voice, a beautiful strong voice. And I want you to think about the closest to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Below the long tail and home before every event would seek permission from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam to call the other. So it wasn't just going out and calling them that. That in and of itself is five times of access to the profit slice. You'd go to the profit slice 70 say a Salatu, Yata Sula, the

00:30:44--> 00:30:49

prayer a messenger of Allah. And what was the answer of the Prophet size? Some of the famous answer

00:30:50--> 00:31:03

behind a bita comfort us with ob that comfort us with the prayer obey that and below the law of Thailand who would stand up and he would call out Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah.

00:31:05--> 00:31:43

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah until the end of the year then and as he would call it out and Subhana Allah sing a shadow under Muhammad, Allah, Allah and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, ala rasulillah would walk out, right? I mean, how beautiful to call the event. And as you're saying, I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah and Mohammed, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam walks out to lead the prayer, as you call your event. And there's a beautiful narration from abroad at will the Allahu anhu. He said that we were with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and below the law and who stood up to give the man by the way, Bilal

00:31:43--> 00:32:28

would have the honor to give the event in Medina and on a journey with the Prophet slicin them. So we're with the prophets I send them and bill out of the Allahu taala and who stood up to give the event. And when he fell silent, when below the law and who finished his event. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said men call mithila have your clean and the halogen column is the how they Athena de la Jana, whoever says this with yaqeen with certainty will enter Paradise. And there is an indication in there that as below the Allahu anhu was saying, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. What did that mean to him? Right? How much certainty did the lotto the law I know having a lot of luck? How

00:32:28--> 00:33:05

much certainty do you have in shadow? shadow, no, Mohammed little sort of luck, didn't he prove it? How much certainty and this being alfalah not just a Salah that this is success, built out of the law and who was willing to die for these words, and almost did die for these words will be allowed on home? When very few would consider the message of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So binotto, the Alon who was the side of the Prophet size, and then he was the confidant of the prophets license. If you wanted to visit the Prophet slice alone, you had to go through but out of the law of data and how he was the one who would wake up the profits license for veget. He used to set up the

00:33:05--> 00:33:45

camps for the profit slice of them he used to guard the profit slice and then when he wants it alone time, how much then did he spend with the profit slice lm his life literally revolved around the Messenger of Allah it his lot was set up, literally, right, his life revolves around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so you can imagine then what the death of the Prophet slicin will do to him. Right. And so that's, that gives some context, and I'm jumping a bit because we haven't gotten to that point of what the death of the Prophet slicin will do to the law, or the law of town. And he's not just the son of the Prophet slicin them he's also a Mujahid, on the side of the Prophet

00:33:45--> 00:34:07

slice Allah. And he's also the first treasure the first cousin of beta, not Cosmo beta, not the treasure of the Prophet slice, I'm the one who would maintain the charity, and the and the wealth as it came into the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam. So without the allowance and who is the first in many different ways, right, there are many ways to attribute the first to below the allowance.

00:34:09--> 00:34:21

And all of it comes from obviously the place of certainty and steadfastness that a lot of the longtail and who had when he accepted Islam, now Subhana Allah with with all of these people,

00:34:23--> 00:35:00

especially those that were enslaved and tortured, we talked about bed dish, right, better being a defining moment. Better is certainly a defining moment for billable the law of town hall as well. And his master omiya or his previous Master, of course, who tortured him and oppressed him. Oh man, you have no holla if you go into the story of or may have not have he actually did not want to go out to bed, but he was he was shamed into going out to bed that by Abuja had well mania was not someone who liked, believe it or not, who liked conflict, he was scared of it. He liked instead to finance his way out of everything to get other people to do

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

For him, he thrived off of his of his lineage and off of his access to power. But omega was not one who actually liked to be in battle or to be in confrontation. And so they actually tried to find many loopholes, to get out of this to get out of the Battle of bedeutet. But had to go out as a Buddha Hall had shamed him and the prophets lie, some could see it in his eyes as he came out to the day of bed that that omega did not actually want to be there. But there's, there's something that precedes that, which is that omega was close to two men from the companions of the Prophet slicin. He was close to

00:35:36--> 00:35:44

the law of Thailand when Medina and he was close to their oath or the law of Thailand. And the man was,

00:35:45--> 00:35:45

you know,

00:35:47--> 00:36:30

of course, one of the early converts of Islam maintain the relationship with omiya, even after Islam, and they had to deal with one another. The deal was that not even their oath was entrusted with the property and the wealth and the family of omega in Medina, and omega was entrusted with the wealth and the property in the family of Adana in Mecca. So even after Islam, they had this document written up, where they made this promise to one another. And omega did not, did not accept the name of Abdullah, his name before Islam was Abdul. So, man no longer goes by.

00:36:32--> 00:37:12

But omega refuses to call him a man. And so they settled on Abdullah. Okay, because they disagree on who the ILA is who God is. So he's the slave of the God. Right, so to omiya, who would call him Abdullah, another man who, of course, refer to a black man. This was the way that they negotiated that contract. So many Abraham shows up at the Battle of bedeutet. And we've talked about what happens with jihad. And we talked about the the vengeance or the you know, what happened with a model the longtown. And above the law, and on the day of better in so many different people, seeing their oppressors fall on the better.

00:37:14--> 00:37:59

When omiya showed up to the Battle of better, he immediately tried to figure out how to get himself out of a direct confrontation. And so he saw a man on the day of better and he submitted himself to a man right away. And he told the man, you know, that that he'll ransom himself with the most expensive of property to get himself out of being killed or being in that fight. Now, can you imagine the emotion of below the lowdown on who's seeing the man who oppressed Him and who treated him that way? For all of those years, on that day of bed, can you imagine what was going through the heart and the mind of Bilodeau the longtime animal, and so when below the law and who saw him, he

00:37:59--> 00:38:51

wanted to kill him, he wanted so bad to kill. And the manager ofI actually narrates the incident, he said that, you know, I captured omiya, I took him in and below the low tide and who followed me with omega. And he shouted out and he said, Man due to another, I will not live if he lives, meaning one of us is going to die, either I die or he dies manager will lie manager to another, I will not live if he lives, that he must die, that I want my revenge. And management is literally shielding omega from Bilaal, who is so emotional now, the Sahaba were waiting for the IRS to be revealed in regards to how they deal with the captive. So in regards to omega honnef. This is no longer in the battle.

00:38:51--> 00:39:18

This is after the battle has already ceased and bill out of the allotted time and who wants to take his revenge on him for what he did to him for all of those years, and he's saying manager to another, and as they are waiting, so panela listen to how he describes the situation. He says I literally had to protect omiya while below the law and some of the unsought were poking with their swords around me trying to get past me to hit him and

00:39:20--> 00:39:59

says, you know, my foot was actually injured because of one of the swords going through trying to get at omega and going past and hitting my foot and below the a lot of time on who killed omega adhaalath that day and took his revenge that day for what was done to him. And Subhana Allah you know, this is this is powerful, because shows you justice. It also shows you the very, you know, the very raw emotional Bilodeau the a lot of time anyone seen the man who did this to him for all of those for all of those months and the most humiliating fashion and a lot of a lot of time and who taking you know, having the opportunity

00:40:00--> 00:40:46

To take his revenge and to have justice in this life with with omega mohalla before the next and other man, he used to say, may Allah have mercy on Bilaal, he wounded me and I got nothing out of the out of grants. So not only did I did binotto the law and who caused my foot to be wounded, but I did not get anything from my prisoner out of ransoming my prisoner. Now there's a twist, by the way, a plot twist, which is important here. And it's and it's a gem of sorts, which is that you know, but out of the a lot of time, who would actually marry the sister of Allah, so anon would become the brother in law below the law of Thailand who later on and so that's the story that becomes within

00:40:46--> 00:40:53

the family at that point of below the law of Thailand oh and omega mohalla. As for the brother of omega mohalla obey.

00:40:54--> 00:41:09

Obey was the first person the only person killed from the hand of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Battle of Finally we come to Mecca. And truly it can be said that better was the day of Hamza law, the law.

00:41:10--> 00:41:54

It was the day of talhah conduct was the day of salmaan fetta Mecca was the date of bilad. It was the date of Billa Bilodeau, the Allahu taala, and who has the privilege of entering into the cab with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam disposing of the very idols and whose name he was subjugated. And on that day, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells below the Allahu taala and who to stand up on top of the cabinet to climb the cabinet, and to call out the man in the same place that belonged to the allotter and who was placed under a stone and almost killed saying I hadn't heard now below the law and who is rising up above the cabinets a call out Allahu Akbar,

00:41:54--> 00:42:41

Allahu Akbar. And that is as some of the scholars say, even harder on the hearts of the mushrikeen than the idols being thrown out themselves is below the low tide and Whoa, rising up onto the cabinet because that represents not just the, the the disposal of those idols, but everything that those idols gave them access to do, the power that it gave them, has now been taken away, and built out of the Allahu taala and stands up on the cabinet, the only man to do so think of the scene, the only man to do so the first and only man to do so calling out Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, a shadow Allah, Allah Allah, a shadow and Mohammed rasulillah and as he climbed up

00:42:42--> 00:43:19

many comments were said some set of abdon s with a black slave you have to take good care about climbing up the cabinet. Many of many of the those who entered into Islam knew they you know they made comments even though they embraced Islam they made comments they you know how did you know he Sham he said couldn't Mohammed's license I'm fine other than this, Rob, which is a crow. So it's a racist comment, to call the people to prayer. So hate him. No, I'm and he said if allowed to test the thing, then he will change it. Abu Sufyan said I will not say anything for if I do it may be that the heavens and the earth will testify against me. So many different narrations of people

00:43:19--> 00:44:03

making comments, Muslims and some of those who were not Muslim making comments about Bilodeau the law of Thailand who claiming and according to the Josie and others, this is where the ayah yohannes in Halak Nachman veker in one third jhana comes true and what about Elijah out of an economic Mandalay? Welcome the verse in suits who do write that oh people we have made you into male and female nations and tribes that you may get to know one another and barely the most noble of you in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala is the one with the most taqwa with the most piety. And so, Bilodeau, the Allahu anhu has the privilege of climbing on top of the cabinet and saying, Allahu

00:44:03--> 00:44:47

Akbar, Allahu Akbar. he attains that honor. And there's another incidence on that day of fetta Mecca that shows you the place of Beloved, beloved, Amar and suhaib. They, they walk by Abu sufian, who of course, had become Muslim in America. And they walk by him and of course, they were insulted by Oba Sophia they were hurt by Oba Sufyan for so many years. He represented the opposing party, even as he became Muslim because it was stamped in their conscience and their memory of what Abu Sufyan represented and most of the companions of Abu Sufyan had perished by that point, right and the battles the various battles between the Muslims in that and it was the the mercy of Allah subhanho

00:44:47--> 00:44:59

wa Taala that Allah preserved those early slaves in Mecca to be there on Mecca on the day of the conquest of Mecca, and not die in the battles that would take place between the original color

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

Islam and that eventual conquest of Mecca, which represented the great victory of Islam. And so, beloved Amar, and so hey, they come across Abu Sufyan. And they said, well, like the swords of Allah did not reach the enemies of Allah like they should have, like you barely escaped. You're lucky we missed you. You're lucky that the swords of Allah did not reach your throat as they should have. So Abu Sufyan who, who of course was, you know, next in line after Abuja hunt in the leadership of Mecca, until it was conquered. Abu Sufyan as he as he says that,

00:45:43--> 00:46:27

you know, he was angry, and he complained to elbow back at us the vehicle of the allotted time. I know. Now, the profits I sell them, of course, wanted to bring the hearts together. And so that's why the prophets lie. Some acknowledged Abu Sufyan and said whoever enters into the home of Abu sufian and he is safe. But here, Abu sufian has transgressed and now repented and the prophets lie Selim is wanting to solidify the ranks of Islam at this point. So Abu sufian complaint Abu Bakr and Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu went to Babylon. And so hey, Ben Amar. And he said, Did you say this to the saints of grace to the leader of grace, so he rebuked them for what they said, and then I will

00:46:27--> 00:47:12

back it on the law and he went to the Prophet sighs lm and he informed the profit slice and I'm about what had happened. And panela you know, Obamacare will be a law and who did not rebuke bilad and amount and suhaib because of jelly. He rebuked them because he had the vision of the profit slice and I'm in wanting to solidify the ranks of Islam. And so had a lot here's what ends up happening. As I will Becca shares this with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam the prophets licenses Yeah, Becky. Oh bobeck la unlocker have bought a home in Quinta have bought a home, laptop back. Oh, Abubakar, it might be that you angered them, who is them Bilal and so haibun Ahmad. And verily, if

00:47:12--> 00:47:52

you would have angered them, then you would have angered your Lord as a result, as panela a record of the law and of course being so deep, what does he do? He goes to Milan and he goes to Amar, and he goes to sohaib. And he immediately seeks forgiveness from them. And they immediately say, you know, May Allah forgive you there is nothing of course they would hold nothing against a will back at us the vehicle of the law, hotel and home. And that is what caused him to be relieved. So the prophets lie Selim showing that that honor to blood he didn't sell them out once he got what he what he wanted, what he thought was, right, that's not the profit slice on and that's, there's something

00:47:52--> 00:48:34

that the Prophet sighs Sam does is he's treating the unsought and solidifying their position. And here, solidifying the sahabas position as well, those early Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the belaz of the world and the slaves of the world, and the martyrs of the world and so on, so forth. And so how would it be them? When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passes away, and below the law and whose life revolves around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as he was passing away and below the law and who saw him in pain saw the fever of the prophet SAW Selim, you know, causing him to go unconscious, and

00:48:34--> 00:48:40

come back. And all of those things below the line who said was not late any midterm

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

was not Oh, what grief I am in. If only I would have died before this.

00:48:49--> 00:49:35

Pay attention to this part was not right. How sad I am. What a day of grief. If only I would have died before this. Bilal does not know the law. I know what he's going to do after the Prophet slicin passes away. His life revolves around him it slotless and, of course, the last pantai decreed, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would die in moto petite and caloptima publikum if he dies or if he is killed, will you go back to on your heels? And of course without will be allowed on who would be firm on the message of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But imagine how difficult it is for Bilal to try to call the then now. When every event in Medina, he used to go to the

00:49:35--> 00:49:59

Prophet size element, say a Salah Yasuda Allah is a time for prayer or messenger of Allah. And the Prophet slicin would say yes. And then he'd called out a shadow and now Mohammed also the lot and Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam would walk out. Now he has to call the event and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not there. And that is a difficult thing. For the heart of beloved will be a lot of time.

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

And of course all of the Sahaba and So Bernardo de la and who stands up after the death of the Prophet, slice Allah, and he starts to call the event. And as he gets to the name of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he breaks down crying. And he tries over and over and over again to say shadow no Mohammed little sort of light and the other and he can't do it will be alone. And all of this habit and Medina are crying hearing without all the law and who struggling to try to say a shadow no Mohammed, the law, civil law. So below the law of China and who calls comes down. And below the law of Thailand who says, I will never call a van to for anyone. Again, after the profit

00:50:40--> 00:51:19

slice on I can't do it anymore. In fact, he tells double Beckett all the time, send me out in Jihad send me out in battle. I can't be in Medina anymore because everywhere he looks, he sees the profit slice of them everything in Medina was the Prophet sly. Sometime he followed the Prophet sites everywhere he guarded the Prophet slice on everyone. He remembered his smile everywhere he looked, he remembered his warmth, his presence, his lots of Islam. So he says to go back, it'll be a lot of time and look to what he's looking at somebody look at what he says to him. He says in Quinta. artak Tony lilla if you have freed before Allah, if you freeze me for a lot, are there any other way

00:51:19--> 00:51:45

through [???]? Then let me go anywhere that I want. And if you have freed me, for you, for yourself, and Quinta aren't up to need enough sit, then hold me and do with me what you want hold back, it'll be allowed and who said, of course, I freed you for a lot open up access to him. Go ahead. Okay, let's go ahead and bill out of the law of Thailand who goes out to a sham in the in the process of jihad.

00:51:46--> 00:52:30

Just like, just like many of the Sahaba went out and battle against the Romans at that moment. And the next time that Bernardo de la tada and who would be gathered with the companions was in a sham, particularly in the conquest of Jerusalem. And all model the allowed time and as Jerusalem is opened, he sees below the low talento. And he bags below the law of town and who said that he didn't want to call them for anyone after the Messenger of Allah slicer. Then he says to bill out of the law of Thailand who, you know, go up and call the other obala the way that you used to when we were in Medina, and after prompting, beloved, so much below the law of Thailand who will stand up in

00:52:30--> 00:53:09

quotes, and and most of the UK saw the first man to call the event in Medina, and then in Mecca, will now be the first man to call the event and as puts making him the first than an all three of the massages, all three of the holiest places in Islam. And as billaudot the law of Thailand who goes up and calls out La Ilaha Illa, Shadow Allah, Allah shadow under Mohammed little sort of law, all of the Sahaba start to cry when below the law and who calls the event. It was as if they forgot that they were in Jerusalem in this new chapter of Islam because they went back reminiscing on the presence of the Prophet sly seven hearing the voice of billaudot the law of town and calling the

00:53:09--> 00:53:54

event in Medina. And the only other than that we know of is an event that belonged to the law of Thailand who gave in Medina one more time, at the request of at hesson. Will Hussein will the law of Thailand humor, the beloved two grand sons of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when did below the law of Thailand who passed away his panel I didn't mention his name, when I did the lecture on the Coronavirus, and the plague that killed the Sahaba. But there are only so many of the books actually mentioned that this is one of the a lot of time passed away in a sham due to the plague of Hamas. In the year 639. Were 25,000 people died, including the likes of more Adam Jebel

00:53:54--> 00:54:44

are the longtime, and who in so many of the great companions of the Prophet slice on here has been out of the law and who now on his deathbed, and his wife, as she sees Bilal leaving this world, and below, or the law of China and who once saw the profit slice I'm leaving this world and said, Where has not what a day of grief, his wife sees below, passing away. And she says, Where has not where will see better? What a day of grief, what a tragedy, and below the lower end who says, see, well, let's say instead, what a great joy it is, rather than alcohol. Mohammedan hesper say what a great joy it is, tomorrow, I will meet my loved ones, Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and his companions. So

00:54:44--> 00:54:59

without all the law and who was longing for the presence of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the companions and he passed away or the Allahu taala. And joining the prophets, I saw them and the companions and that high level and I'll just end with these

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

Few narrations of the virtues of blonde and there's so many. The prophets lie Selim said I was showing a gentleman and I saw on solane or the law of Thailand and I heard the noise of some steps

00:55:15--> 00:55:59

hush hush and me some steps in front of me that either below and it was the steps below the allow time in agenda. So, the profit slice I'm set to below tell me what is the most hopeful act that you have done with a loss of Hannah Montana since your acceptance of Islam? Because Oh, Bella, I heard your footsteps ahead of me and agenda, and billable the law and who said I do not consider any acts more hopeful, except that when I make will in any time of the night or the day, I immediately perform to that guise of salah and or pray as long as was destined for me to pray. The profit slice of them also said what an excellent person he is. And he's the leader of the bins on the day of

00:55:59--> 00:56:01

judgment and the profits license of

00:56:02--> 00:56:37

the medicines will have the longest necks on the Day of Judgment. There's another narration from an old model of the law of town and how to love Norma may Allah be pleased with him and his father who said absolutely Beloved, glad tidings or Beloved. And he said, for what Yeah, Abdullah, he said, I heard the messenger of a loss licensee, that beloved will come on the Day of Judgment holding a lie a holding a standard, and all of the more evidence will follow below until they enter gentlemen, that's a narration that CLT considers authentic. Finally, one more narration, which shows you the place of beloved in the hearts of the Sahaba of the love no role model, the Allahu anhu mom whose

00:56:37--> 00:57:24

father taught him that beloved is our master, who was freed by our master of the love, no matter named his son, beloved, after the beloved. And of course, Bilal is frequently named in our oma and as a poet was praising, beloved Abdullah Norma and he said that the Beloved of Abdullah is the best of blondes Omar, Abdullah and Rama interjected and he said that, he said, You have lied, he said, the Beloved of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam is the best of opulence. The Bilaal of Rasulullah slicin as the best of all believes, and SubhanAllah. We have his name, we have his legacy, we have his memory, I could go on and on about him. And the only reason we don't have more ideas from him is

00:57:24--> 00:58:01

because of the age at which he died a long time and when the distance that he kept away from the from from the city of Medina, after the death of the Prophet slice Allah, may Allah azza wa jal allow us to hear his voice and his footsteps on the Day of Judgment, and to follow him into the presence of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the one he loved so much and the one we love so much, may Allah grant us the companionship of the beloved salallahu alayhi wasallam May Allah grant us the suck the cleaning the certainty of the law, the law and when we say those words that he said, may Allah subhanaw taala forgive us for our shortcomings alone. I mean, does that mean lol Hayden

00:58:01--> 00:58:04

was so damn already come to LA he got a cat
