sort of an
an understanding of how we're going to proceed inshallah. So tonight, we will cover the life of a very particular special woman, or a man or the law of Thailand. And then next week, we're actually going to take a break from the series and we're instead going to talk about the Antichrist that the job the false messiah and mercy had the job and we're going to talk about the second coming of resigning his salon so we're going to talk about Jesus peace be upon him, particularly about the return of a Saudi Islam. So we'll break from the series for one week inshallah to talk about that and then we'll take two weeks off, and then we'll continue inshallah tada in the second half of
January, with the story of alley of the Allahu anhu. But tonight again, we're going to talk about a woman that doesn't usually get spoken about so before that I need to set my bodyguards inshallah so someone to guard the member and someone to guard the camera, inshallah, to make sure that no one goes in front of the camera, but the nighttime and of course, none of the children or the adults run up to the men, but inshallah
some of the adults were thinking about it, I can see it in your eyes.
Second half of January, we'll go to it, and we'll continue but Who is this woman on a man, what the law of Thailand
on a man is someone I spoke about in the past in the stories of the particularly a series that I did a long time ago called Black and noble, where I talked about some of the famous black companions of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. But I'm going to go a lot deeper into her story today, because this is a woman that is unlike any other woman, in fact, unlike any other human being is that and that she was literally with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from the moment that he was born, until the moment that he died, there is no one else that could actually claim that distinction. Okay, so these are the law on her knew the Prophet slice of them when he was in his 20s. He saw the
law and he knew the profit slice alone when he was an adult. This is a woman that would carry the profits on a long race, and then when he was born, and stay with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam until the moment that he died, and even outlive the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam so to set the scene of Mecca, and to understand where this woman comes from, she was born approximately 13 years before the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So approximately in the year 557, because everyone knew that the Prophet slicin was born in 570. Right.
Okay to have you know, hamdulillah so she was born about 557. And she was from Abyssinia. And she actually was a slave from Abyssinia, of course they used to have, particularly in the days of jelenia, and the days of ignorance, the slave market and socolor of course, was the famous market and in Mecca, and she was the only the only one purchased by the father of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Abdullah Abdullah McClellan as a young girl and he was the only one or she was the only one that was ever brought into that household. And so in the household of the prophets lie Selim, you had Abdullah Amina bin swab, and this one girl Baraka, her name was Baraka bent Salah
about the Allahu taala and her so Baraka bin
Abdullah and Amina lived together in this in this home. And soon after the marriage of Abdullah and Amina the parents of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Abdullah actually set out onto a journey. Where do you think he went for his trade route?
Where do you think he went? Syria, Sham, greater Syria, I want to test your knowledge as we're going week to week to see if you're connecting things to the previous lesson, because every single one is going to connect to the previous lesson. When would they go to Syria in the winter or in the summer?
They had to trade routes Yemen and Syria. Right. Why would they go to Syria in the summer? Because if you could go to Yemen or Syria in the summer, which one would you go to? No offense to the Yemenis. If you could go in the winter to Yemen or Syria, where would you go?
Yemen Okay, good. So they
they used to go to Syria for their trade routes in the in the summer. When Abdullah actually left for a sham. He did not know that Amina was pregnant. Okay. He wasn't even aware that his wife was pregnant at the time. So
He sets out to a sham. And a few months after he sets up to a sham, you know how to dream. And in that dream, she saw a light coming from her stomach, lighting up the hills and the valleys of Mecca, all the way to a sham all the way to greater Syria. Now, there's only one other person in the home at this time and who is that?
Baraka, okay? This young girl Baraka so she told Baraka,
this Amazonian servant of hers, what she saw and said, What do you think and Baraka said, you know, hopefully it's a blessed child with good news. You know, that's the only thing I could think about and she noticed that Amina was getting sick more often. So she she thought maybe these are the signs of pregnancy. And indeed, they were. So Amina became pregnant. She spent a few months on the bed all by herself longing for the return of her son of her husband, Abdullah. And as she waited for her husband to return, she used to send Buttercup to the place where the people would return from a sham every single day to see if the news had come that Abdullah had returned from a sham. So Baraka would
stay with her she she used to entertain her with the stories of inhabits of the stories of Abyssinia, the story some of the things that she had heard, she kept her good company, and everyday she goes out looking for the return of Abdullah, the husband of Amina bins Wahhab, until finally she went out, and she was told that all that had gone out to a sham had returned, and that Abdullah had not made it back with the caravan meaning that Abdullah the father of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away. Baraka was the one who was tasked with actually giving the news to Amina that her husband, Abdullah had passed away on that train on that trade route to a sham. She consoled the
mother of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, through that difficulty. She was the one that had to stay with her throughout her pregnancy. And when that date comes, when Amina goes into delivery, to give birth to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the only other person in the room was this young girl but aka
the first one to hold the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Think about that. The first one to hold the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in her hands. She said I saw a light. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born. It came out of the house and I said this is the interpretation of your dream. She held the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she claimed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she handed the Prophet sallallahu wasallam to his mother, Amina bint Wahab. She's one of three women who would nurse the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that is authentically narrated. If, of course is the mother of the Prophet slicin herself. I mean, I've been to a hub and Baraka on
Ayman and thirdly Halima a Cydia Halima, while the Allahu anhu would nurse the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. When he went out into the open desert, which was a ritual they would spend, they would spend some time raising the children in the open desert.
So this is the first girl first woman to hold the prophets lie Selim nurses the prophets lie Selim takes care of the mother of the prophets lie Selim. In the house, it's only those three. When the Prophet salallahu Salam goes to Halima, she brings the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam back, an Amina and there are different narrations about how Amina bins will have the mother of the Prophet slice I'm actually passed away some of them say that she went out to actually visit the grave of her husband, and she got sick on the journey of going to visit the grave of Abdullah the father of the profits of the mycelium and her husband. And I want you to think of the scene now. When the prophets
lie Selim came out of the womb of his mother, into the hands of Baraka. Now she's sitting Baraka is sitting there, and the mother of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is dying in front of his eyes. six year old orphan who never knew his father, the prophets lie some never met Abdullah never knew him. And he's watching his mother passed away. I mean, I actually whispered to Baraka and told her that I'm dying now, after she had gotten that fever. And what's not Baraka she gave she entrusted Baraka while the Allahu taala. On her, she said, Take care of him as if you are his mother. Take care of him as if you are his mother. care for him, stay with him. Make sure that he
doesn't know any sadness beyond this. So Baraka while the LA hotel and her was there, the moment that the Prophet slice alum came out into this world out of the womb of Amina, and he was there the moment that Amina passed away in
front of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and how to console the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a six year old boy at the death of his mother, Amina. So think of the scene seem to be holding the prophets lie Selim comforting the Prophet sly salon. At this point now she's only about 19 years old, and she is the only woman that the prophets lie Selim really knows as that figure. Then the prophets lie some goes to the house of optimal plot of his grandfather, and of the multilib dies when the prophets lie some was how old just nine years old. Once again, she consoled the prophets lie Selim at the death of his grandfather. So she was there when Amina died. She was there
when the mo polyp died. She stayed with him sallallahu wasallam throughout his entire life, technically, technically, the prophets lie some inherited her but the Prophet slicin him freed her. So technically, she was the inheritance of Abdullah to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but he freed her sallallahu wasallam as an adult, he stays with her. And when the prophets lie, some marries the devil, the Allahu taala on her. This was the woman that was with him his entire life. He introduces Baraka, Khadija, with the following, he says, He only that the only she is my mother, after my mother. And that was the way that the Prophet slicin would always refer to this woman. She
is my mother, after my mother, meaning this is not just some servants, not just some woman that's to be disregarded. He only by the only, Baraka did not get married throughout that entire time. So just like the prophets lie, some did not want to get married, he wanted to take care of him and his children and, and serve as a productive member without without being distracted by marriage or anything of that sort. Baraka also did not want to get married, because of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And so when he introduced Baraka to Khadija he only bad The only she's my mother, after my mother.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to her, yeah, Baraka, I'm married, and you're not. So maybe you should think about getting married? No. She said, Never. She said, I'm going to stay with you, yada, yada. I'll move in with you and Khadija, and I'm going to stay with you. I'm not going anywhere. The prophets lie Selim told her you donated your youth for my cause. Now go out there, you know, it's time for you to get married, and to have a life of your own. She's free. She's not property anymore. She's free. Right? She's not bound in any way to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and she insists Khadija all the time. I'm told her also insisted said that I will bring you the best of men. And I
will pay for all the expenses of your marriage. Remember Khadija used to do that for the poor women she used to pay for their wedding expenses. She used to pay them a house, she used to do all of those things. She said, Look, I'll bring you the best of men. And I'll also pay for all of your wedding expenses. Baraka had said something very beautiful,
that that just sticks and shows and shines in her life. Baraka said I never left him and he never left me. Not talk to him when I'm here. I never left him and he never left me. I'm always been by his side. But after they insisted upon her, she agreed to get married. Khadija will the law of town on her actually found the suitor for Basilica, and his name was obeyed. Bin Zayed obeyed bin Zayed and he was from Al Hassan, the tribe in Medina and yet, at that time, it was still yesterday. So he was a good man, a noble land from yesterday from the tribe of Al Hassan Raj.
They got married before Islam. So this is actually before the Prophet sallallahu Sallam receives what he
she had a son from him who can guess what his name was? Amen. Mashallah. You got it. All right. I was I said, if no one gets this one. I'm just gonna shut this off and just stop right? It's no point at this point. All right. Oh, amen. Right. Amen. She had a son named Amen. And Amen. Would love to see Islam and Ayman would believe an Amen would actually die all the time, who as a Shaheed as a martyr, but her husband died before Islam. Her husband died before Islam. So she moved in with Amun back into the home of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and Khadija, or the Allahu taala on her, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received revelation on the Messenger of Allah sallallahu
Sallam received revelation, we know that he came to the arms of Khadija or the law of Thailand. And obviously, all of the family members were going to embrace Islam at some point, the second woman to believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was this woman, or a man or the law of Thailand. So she's considered the second woman to believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not hesitate believed in him immediately when she heard the message, and dedicated herself to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, just like anyone
who had loved him that way or knew his character and he his Salatu was Salam
I would do so. Now when she believes in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and her husband had passed away. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said something about her seeing her grow in her age and she didn't have a husband. She just had her child, amen. The prophets lie Selim said and this is still in Mecca man sutra who and yet is over dimora 10 min lol Jana folia Desert which on a man said, Look whoever wants to marry a woman from Jenna, a woman from Paradise. let him marry on a man. All right. She doesn't her lineage is unknown. She's not wealthy. She's an old woman. She's a she's a widow. But the prophets lie some such she's a woman from gentlemen. Guess who volunteers to marry
They didn't inherit Ethan, while the Allahu tyronn. Zaid was at least at least 20 years younger than her. Okay, Zaid was at least 20 years younger than a layman had never been married before. Zaitsev. If she's a woman from Junga, I want to marry her. Because if she's in Jamaica, then I get to be in Jamaica to write so I said I want to marry this woman and he volunteered herself he rushed to marry her and this was about six years after the Prophet slicin received the message Why? Because the child that would come from them Osama bin Jose was 17 turning 18 when the Prophet slicin and passed away. Okay, so this is about six years after the Prophet sallallahu Sallam received revelation
zayde little the longtime who has a similar background and that Zaid also was purchased from the same soup the same market and fried by the prophet sallallahu wasallam. But they though the allowed time who was freed and taken as a son by the prophet, slice alum, Baraka on a man was freed and became like the mother of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam but somehow Subhana Allah they were married, and she was not expected to give birth. She was past the age of childbearing. She wasn't expected to give birth, but Allah subhanaw taala blessed them with Osama bin Zayed or the Allahu anhu headquarters hibou Rasulullah rasulillah the beloved one of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam,
the son of the Beloved One of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So it's an interesting, some halloway that they both came into the prophets like settlers house into a very, through a very unique story. And they were married in a very unique way. And they had a child with some of his aide who the prophets lie some loved like his own children, right with some of news, he would jump on the back of the Prophet, slice them and sit on his lap. Within heslin Hussein Zane up Mama, it was known that it was sama was like his own child and the Prophet sly some appointed him to be the commander of the Muslim army after he had passed away. And of course, this was to the objection of some people that
this young man How is he going to lead the way lead the army, but this was the son of bottlecap on Amun. And they didn't have either, or the law of Thailand known as mine. So she believed in the prophets license, she married zevo, the law of Thailand home, she would give birth to Osama bin Zayed even though it wasn't expected of her to give birth. And when the hedge rock came around, when the migration came around, she made the hids law in her old age, and it was a very difficult journey for her. And there's an authentic narration about something that happened to her that would that was miraculous, and that would have an impact on her for the rest of her life, during the hidden of the
Prophet sallallahu wasallam and at that point, she was over the age of 70 years older, she was reaching the age of 70 years old, so she's, she's an elderly woman now, making the hits of not making that difficult journey between Mecca and Medina. I'm a member of the Allahu taala and
found herself in a situation where she couldn't find any water.
And she was starting to worry that she wouldn't have anything to drink, that she was going to die of thirst and of course this happened even to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam that there was a point in his journey where they go to the house of Omar but they found they found the house of a moment and that's where the prophets lie some got something to drink well name and all the alongside Anna has a similar situation. And while this was happening, she tells the story she says for lemon law but the chumps either enter the inner in more unlock endora. See, she said that when I was when the sunset, she saw a
bucket coming down from the heavens at her head, and there was a rope that was holding it and she said, Well, I could not see the top of that rope. And she said, so. I took from that picture from that bucket. I drank from it and there was still water inside of it. After I satisfied my thirst. She said I dumped the rest of the water on my body to cool me off. And she was known for something she says
assume fileopen how some autofocus chumps k k alpha she said that I used to after that day, I would fast on the hottest of days I would do toe off under the sun, I would do all these different things. And she said, Well la he I never became thirsty again in my entire life. So fasting was the easiest Riba for me the easiest act of worship that Allah Subhana Allah even provided for me, that water from the heavens in that difficult journey, when I migrated for the cause of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam. When she got to Medina, her feet were swollen. The prophets lie some looked at her, with her face covered in dust, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to her yet, Ma,
oh, my mother, indeed for you as a place in that agenda. So this was the second time that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam actually shuttle her, but agenda gave her the glad tidings of a place in paradise. So he looked at her covered in dust, this woman that was with him all the time that was undergoing these difficulties, still, with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and said, that you have a place and agenda on a man witnessed every battle of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. She used to follow the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and Anasazi Allahu taala. And who says that she would go around the battlefield and she keep her eyes on the prophets lie Selim, like a mother.
And she just kept her eyes on him the entire time, making sure that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam, would not become hurt. At the end of the battle, she used to care for the wounded. She used to, she used to to bend age, those that were hurt. And she used to she used to give even from her own, I bought from her own clothes to wrap the wounded as much as she could in the Battle of a shirt. She was one of those who grabbed a sword, and who started to swing around the Prophet sallallahu wasallam we know in the battle had many people fled from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and she was one of those who actually grabbed the sword and went to the side of the
messenger sallallahu wasallam. To defend defend him while everyone was fleeing away from him. salallahu alayhi wasallam her life was basically the life of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam what kind of novel about la hacer la la while he was selling me a cool heavy he baqia to animate it on the profit slice on used to see her. He used to look at her and he used to say this is the entirety of what's left of my family. This is the entirety of what's left of my family. So he would call her his mother, yo Ma, he addresses her as his mother. He introduces her as only by the only my mother after my mother. And he says have the he Bucky to elevate tea that this is the entirety of the rest
of my family. This is all I have. This is the only mother that the Prophet sighs and I would know throughout his entire life The only one that would stay with him throughout that entire time. What cannot be his Salatu was Salam Yuzuru Hakuna Liam profits like I'm used to visit her every single day. And on one of those visits, prophets lie some asked her Yeah. Oh my mother kafer Hi, Loki, how are you? And listen to the answer that she gave.
She said, My Domine Islam will be higher for Anna.
She said as long as Islam is good, I'm good. As long as Islam is okay, meaning as long as your message is protected. I'm okay as well.
And that's just some Pamela something extremely
beautiful that she's showing the Prophet sallallahu Sallam her dedication to his costs that at no point. At no point Am I ever going to forsake you. I'm not going to complain. This is a woman that would live to see into her late 70s in the life of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would not tell the prophets lie Selim. You know, my feet are hurting. My eyes hurt, I'm swollen. I've gone through all of this. I miss Mecca. She just tells the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam no behave that I'm okay as long as Islam is okay. And that was something that would comfort the prophets lie Selim. Let the Prophet sallallahu wasallam know that, that she had his back but she was dedicated to the
message of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam throughout his entire life and no matter what he needed. What are some of the stories of the prophets liason with her, her mo aka her station with the prophets like Selim? Well, for one, she was extremely motherly. And there's a funny narration from Anasazi, alongside Sahih Muslim, that the prophets lie Selim would visit her. And if she was, if the Prophet slicin was fasting, or he didn't want to eat, the messengers that she would actually take a second look at. Speaking of food, and I'm not fasting by the way my throat just hurts.
And so the law of Thailand who says that the Prophet slicin winter her home, and as he sat in her home home, a man will do
On her, brought out the bread brought out all of the food. And the prophets lie Selim if he was fasting or he did not want to eat, that she would force the food into his mouth. Salalah Hardy was supplements they couldn't she would put the food right in front of him say eat, eat, eat just like a mom would do. Right? So that's the relationship that he has, with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a very quiet woman, her reputation, which is just a beautiful thing to have with the prophets lie Selim Cana to LA Haikou. salallahu alayhi wasallam she was the person who would make the Prophet slicin laugh. There was no one that would make the prophets lie some laugh, like on a
man of the Allahu taala. And you can actually trace several of these incidents through the sila. It starts off with her language. She was an obvious Indian woman modern day Ethiopia. Her Arabic was very poor. And she had a hard time pronouncing things so sometimes she would say things with the opposite meaning. So when she when she would say Salaam wa Alaykum instead of saying Salaam Alaikum. Some one time she said the problem to the prophets lie Selim Salaam Alaikum which means Salaam la alikum. May peace not be on to you.
Just because of her tongue just because of the way that she would speak right and he had a hard time saying Salaam Alaikum. So see what say Salaam Alaikum. So the prophets lie Selim told her you can just say a Salaam Alright, so you know we do text and we say Saddam's alright or Salaam we got the narration. Except we were not Tongue Tied but still the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told her you know what when you enter upon you just say a salon. All right. You don't have to say more than that. I would wait if he narrates he says that only men will be allowed on what used to be behind the battle lines in the battle and she would give these encouraging messages but sometimes because of her
language, she messed things up. So the prophets lie Selim used to look at her and he would laugh. And on the day of her name, she was saying submit to law academic. Instead of fitbits. May Allah make your feet firm? She was saying something that's Allahu academical. May Allah make your feet it actually has no meaning Submit. Right? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looked at it hurt. And he laughed and he said, Let's go to a man for inaccuracy. And Lisa said, Be quiet. a layman. You have a you have a you have a rough tunc All right, so even on the date of battle, the prophets lie some of them would joke with her he wasn't saying that to be mean to her. One of the famous stories
between the prophets lie Selim and her from Ayman came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and said to him, Emily, carry me now she doesn't mean carry me physically. She means Bring me a camel or something. So the prophets lie Selim said to her middle kiya Allah what are the Naka he said look I'll bring you the son of a she camel child of a she camel the baby of a she camel to carrier so amen on the Allahu tada on her said loyalty Connie whether
it's not going to be able to carry me nor do I want a baby of a she camel. So the profits of the lies that I'm saying I'm not going to carry you except on the baby of a she camel. She was confused by this. So what are you talking? Why don't you want to get me a camel? So he said to her Yeah, amen. Is there any camel except that as the child of another camel? Alright, so the prophets lie Selim county uma Zhi Hua, he used to always laugh with her joke with her, call her his mother, but this was the woman saw the law when he was Salaam, that when the Prophet slicin looked at her, he was comforted. When she looked at him, she was always looking at him with the eye of care with an
eye of love. And, of course, in the serious moments, she followed the prophet SAW lahardee, whistling through and through an eye bustle the allot of time.
He actually narrates that when the daughter When, when, when, when a young child of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was dying.
The Prophet slicin picked up the child, and he held the child to his chest sallallahu wasallam. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam put his hands on the child, and then the child died in front of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So there's a child that died in the hands of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And on a memo, the Allahu anhu was present. So the prophets lysozyme started to cry. And so on, a man saw the prophets lie some crying, shih tzu started to cry right seeing the death of that child in the hands of the Prophet sly, some of the Prophet slicin was very soft hearted, and his eyes were swelled with tears and so she started to cry as well. So the Prophet
sallallahu wasallam said to her, yeah, amen.
Attempt keen on him and why are you crying? She said, the eldest sutala I'm crying because you're crying. You know that. Of course. I'm crying. You're crying too. We're both crying over the same thing. And so she said Mandela of Kyoto Sula, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yucky Why should I not cry when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is crying. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in needless to upkeep, when I couldn't have said, Look, I'm not weeping, but instead of His mercy. What he means by that satellite cinema is that the crying that I have is
Not one of displeasure or questioning of God. It's one of compassion. I'm crying out of compassion and love for the child just so she does not mistake, the crying of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam as one of questioning a loss decree with the with the death of that child. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to her, and not many will be Hayden, Allah Cooley had turns around, to whom in veiny, jan jan de la jolla, mundo la xojo, that the believer is in good. The believer is in good whatever the situation mean the believer is, is fine and is in a state of contentment, no matter what the situation is. The prophets lie. Some said even when his soul is being pulled from his body,
he remains in praise of Allah subhana wa tada he remains in praise of his Lord, meaning that this is compassion. This is mercy. But I'm not questioning the decree of Allah, even with this child, even with this death, even with something that naturally brings out that I'm at the mercy from the heart of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. I'm not crying over that authentic hadith and soon in the sorry, that's narrated on the part of an ambassador the Allahu taala on Homer. So Amen. Well, the law Anna has this history with the prophets lie some that's mainly in the background, right? You don't actually have many narrations from her. But you know that she is his mother, you know that she is
the first one to carry him, you know that she is someone that the Prophet slicin I'm honored throughout all circumstances. And you can imagine this woman when the prophets lie, some died. Can you imagine her entire purpose in life was defined by that moment that she held the prophets license, it's a miracle that she did not die, when the prophet SAW some done. And what's said about a man will the alongside a man who was with the Prophet slicin, and when that child died, and heard those messages from the prophets lie Selim,
in the house, that she went completely silence, wouldn't talk to anybody sort of withdrew from society. She watched the scene in Medina, as the people wept and cried, and as they buried the profits a lot harder than the only person that was in the room when the Prophet slicin came out of his mother's womb. And she sees this oma of over 100,000 people now, crying and weeping over the death of the prophet SAW a lot of money with them, and she watches from afar, as they bury the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she keeps a distance from the people. She becomes very quiet, very silent, doesn't really talk much doesn't really joke much anymore. being the only person
who is with the prophets license from the day that he was born until the date of his death, and in his Salatu was Salam. And she was someone who witnessed pantalon she witnessed the death of her first husband. Then she witnessed the death of her son Ayman and habashi, who was martyred at the Battle of her name. Then she witnessed the death of her second husband Zaid dignan, howdy pho who was martyred in the Battle of Mata. Then she witnessed the death of the prophet SAW the law how it was set up. Then she witnessed the death of her second son Osama bin Zayed law, the law of China and human soul Amen. Well, the Allahu anhu actually lived some of the scholars say she lived to see the
age of 100 years old. So she lived all the way through every single person that came into her life from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam onwards, and she lived through the feed off of rubble bucket and she lived through the feed off of Allah, may Allah subhana wa tada be pleased with them both. And she saw all of those people that were beloved to her one by one
buried there's a story a narration of Bahati that after the death of the Prophet sallallahu it was sent him a double bucket and Amato wanted to visit on mainland because the Prophet slicin used to visit on the mainland. Think about your status in society when double bucket and Omar want to visit you after the death of the Prophet slice of them right there. They're going together to visit her to help her grieve, to help her get over her situation.
And they get into the home. They sit with the profits of alaris and I'm and as soon as they sit, I'm sorry, they sit with a man all the time. As soon as they sit with her she starts to cry.
When they see her crying, what are they assuming? Why is she crying?
She misses the prophets lie Selim right there, they assume that she's crying over that. And they would that's a pretty safe assumption to make. This is the only purpose that she had in her entire life was being that watchful eye right over the profits lies I'm trying to, to preserve him to protect him to take care of him. And so as she starts to cry, a little bucket and Omar they start to tell her Don't cry. Oh, amen. Don't you know that Allah had in store for the profits like some is better than what he had over here? Meaning you know, they they're speaking to the natural emotion of a mother, that Don't you know that what is with him now what Allah has given him now is better than
that which he left here.
And she says something extremely profound.
She says to them, I know that what Allah has given to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is better than what he had over here. She said, That's not why I'm crying. So the more Are you crying, she said, up key, the underwire here, but in Minnesota, she said, I'm crying because the revelation has ceased to come from the heavens.
And so I will back in and almost started to weep. And under cinematical, the lava Thailand who said they all three of them wept for a long time together, it's probably imagine the scene of Ayman abubaker and Omar, all sitting together, crying over that profound statement that we used to have a direct connection to the heavens in the presence of the prophets license, right, the revelation was coming fresh through the mouth of that man. So I saw that boy who I carried a nurse and took care of. And now that revelation has ceased to come down. So it was a longing for the revelation as well. When the Prophet sallallahu wasallam passed away. She then outlived aboubaker. And then she lived to
see the assassination of Alma and she died about 20 days after the a lot of time and home, was assassinated. And she was buried in a box here, which is the graveyard right next to the message of the prophets of alarm sentiment. nasaka has a beautiful narration says that when they buried on a Memory A Lot of times,
they made sure that they buried her with the direct where she was directly in line with the grave of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So it's like she's adjacent to the prophets license. She's facing the Qibla, just like the prophets lie Selim. Very they're in a book here, while the Allahu Tanana looking forward that way, and there's so many lessons we can learn from this woman and her life, obviously, her place in history.
The character of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in honoring this woman and upholding her right when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says that there is no virtue of an Arab over a non Arab, or a non Arab over an Arab, or a white person over a black person or a black person over a white person, the prophets lie some elevated this woman in her status, despite her truck not having a tribe, despite her skin color, despite her gender, despite her poverty, despite all of that the prophets lie Selim held her in that esteem, and it forces society as a whole to look at this woman that otherwise would be neglected. And look at her with that status of being the mother of the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So it's the attitude of the Prophet slicin, the testimony of the Prophet slicin towards her that's so powerful. It's also her connection, her love of the prophets lie Selim, her sacrifice. One of the things about a man with the law of Thailand, is that you find a woman that never once complained, never once complained about being in the service of the Prophet size on being in the service of something greater about the hardship that she faced in that purpose, because she understood that it was something purposeful. And you see that human humanity of the Prophet slice alum, you see that, that deep love and that affection of the Prophet sallallahu
sallam, but you also see this deep commitment of this woman to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And you have to ask yourself that question, you know, when we do work for this higher purpose of being right, and someone asks you, how are you? And you say, you know, what, Muslims are driving me crazy. The message of this this, these people are this, sometimes I want to just give it all up, right? I'm sick of dealing with it all. And what was her answer? On a bee hive? My dominance zombie? Hi, I'm good, as long as I'm as good. Meaning, you know, for the cause that I'm dedicated to, I'm okay. I'm okay. So that that idea of commitment is something that you find in Khadija law, the law of town and
something that you find in this remarkable woman. Baraka on Ayman while the law of Thailand, we asked a lot of parents out to be pleased with her to to elevate her and we asked Allah subhanaw taala to reward her for her care for the profits from her sacrifice and to join us with her and with the prophets allies on the highest level of generative for those long army
