Let's talk about IE while the Ola hotel on home today, so we know who his father is. Who's his father, I just wanna see how awake you guys are.
Able pilot. Good. All right, so his father's herbal pilot. That would mean his brother's name is Java.
I'm just trying to see if you guys are awake, okay? Yes, he has a brother named father. there's a there's a key there is Java. And then there is Ali. Okay, so Paula is the oldest son of appletalk. Does anyone know what the
actual name was? What his real name was? His name was abdomen if I've done enough, okay, so I've done enough, I will call him obviously, because his oldest son was pileup, and it comes down to as we said, it's solid, and then it is appeal. And then Jafar, who we're going to have a very special session about, at some point about Java will do all the time. And then finally, it will the gala hotel, and each one of these brothers was a decade apart from the other. So there are 10 years between approximately 10 years between each of the brothers as the the children of Ableton Live. And actually something that really stuck out to me was the naming that was chosen for them and I'm going
to talk about that on July inshallah. So we have two weeks to really live with this family. When we talk about the special people as they existed around the Prophet sly seldom, what was the name of Ali's mother? Does anybody know? Don't say, Okay.
What was his mother's name?
Fatima. I mentioned that there are very few videos. In fact, I could not find anyone before Khadija rhodiola hotelplanner named Khadija. But when it comes to Fatima there is thought Lima, the mother of Le Fatima bint Mohammed the wife of Le sallallahu alayhi wa sallam model de la and Heather's Fatima bint Hamza Fatima bint shaybah. So akeel also has wife named Fatima, there are a lot of Fatima's that exist in that time. But the mother of a little the hotel and home Fatima bint asset is so special that I thought about doing a whole lecture about her but then I said this series is going to get way too long. If I do a whole lecture on on her and we're just going to end up having to dig
a lot deeper but she is a first as well. She is the first Hashimi woman to accept Islam. The first actual person from the family the first woman from the family of the Prophet sly so um, in terms of his tribe, to accept Islam, so unlike a pilot, who of course had held out because of the implications of his tribe, faulty not been tested about the Allahu taala and her immediately accepted Islam. So she's considered the first hash Amelia, the first woman from Banu Hashim to accept Islam. Some of the scholars put her as the 10th or 11th person as a whole to accept Islam. So she is one of the first 10 or first 11 to embrace the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam, she did not hesitate at all. When the Prophet sallallahu wasallam informed her about the message she immediately believed in the prophets lie Selim. And she always knew there was something special about him. She's also like a man, someone that the Prophet sighs I'm referred affectionately to as a mother, because she served that role as a mother. Now we know that the Prophet sighs I'm used to call a double polyp, his father, and although pilot would call him his son, and one of the nicknames of the Prophet sly, some was yet team Abul pilot, the origin of mobile pilot, right? So there's a hadith where he would say we remember the story in a sham, where Ebeltoft have said, This
is my son and the preset, that no No, no, this the young man that awaited his father would have passed away and then he explained that it's his nephew. But fathima bent asset essentially raises the profit slice of them particularly from the age of six, to the age of 25, to the age of six to the age of 25. When the prophets lie, Selim got married to Khadija rhodiola hotelplanner the prophets lie Selim recalled the times of hunger, particularly where fathima mint acid used to sacrifice her own food for the Prophet sly summoned for her children. Remember, our pileups family was struck with extreme poverty and poverty stayed with that family all the way until Islam, okay
into Islam and never actually left the family of embleton. They were people that lived in extreme difficult poverty and the prophets lie. Some would recall the times that Fatima bint Asad would not have would just have a little bit of food for herself and she would instead choose to distribute that amongst the prophets lie Selim and her and her children.
And as we said she accepted Islam instantly.
She even considered making his way out to Abyssinia with her son Java. So we'll talk about Java will the Allahu anhu again in a future halaqa, but even considered making that hids or migrating to escape the persecution in in Mecca, and she especially loved Java out of her kids for a reason, because Java looked like the profit slice of them. So she loved Java, particularly for his physical resemblance of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So she had a preference, a soft spot for Java, while the little toddler and she suffered during the boycott, as we talked about the boycott on bento Hashim and benomyl problem, of course, that would cause the death of obatala. But it would
cause the death of Khadija for the love of China. And she she also suffered, obviously, from the death of her husband, I will call it in those in those difficult days, the profit slice and I'm used to often when he would receive something he would say divided amongst the Fatima's Okay, so I did all the long time and who would take some of the food and some of the things that would come and he would divide it amongst the fathers in the families.
Ideal the law of town and who says about the Prophet sly summon his mother, he says kind of a pseudo law he Salalah Harney with salami, azuro Haida, even when you look at how the Prophet slice I'm used to go and visit her and he would enjoy her company and sit for a very long time in her home. And when she passed away, shows you the love of the Prophet sly some for this woman when she was dying. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to her home he removed his own shirts, and he wrapped her in his shirts on the lohani he was alone, and he sat beside her bed, and he made do out for her while she was passing away. And she passed away with her eyes on the prophets lie Selim, La Jolla,
Derrida while he was making your offer what a way to leave this world somehow wrapped in the shirt of the Prophet slice alum, staring at the profit slice I'm sitting by her bedside making up for a loss of Hannah horchata to forgive her and to ease her transition. When he will be allowed to add on who said that I remembered the day that Fatima bint acid was buried and she's buried in here a lot of blood so she's actually she made the Hitler to Medina and she was buried in Medina and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself jumped in the grave and he he cleared the dirt for her. You know, obviously, there's a task to get inside the grave and to make sure that there's no
obstacles, no hard rocks or anything that would prevent the body and he cleared the grave for her himself. sallallahu wasallam and then he asked for her body to come into the grave. So the Prophet slicin actually received the grave of the body of this woman himself sallallahu wasallam and praised her and then led her janaza
file team have been tested also through her children there are 46 a hadith narrated from Fatima been tested while the Allahu taala and her wild Aloha. So this is the mother of it. And the reason why I wanted to spend a little bit of time is because you know,
but you often don't hear about the mother of a little the little toddler on home. felting vinta said the first of the Hashimi women to accept Islam. So I need all the alongside on who was born,
according to have been huddled about 10 years before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received revelation. Okay, about 10 years before the prophets lie, some received revelation farlam was the age of the prophets lie Selim. And then there is a key 10 years later, and then there is Jaffa 10 years later. And then there is only 10 years later. And then the prophets Allah lohani was sent and received revelation. Of course, of course, as I need all the time, who was a young boy in his in his home.
And there are a few things that are to be mentioned here. When he was born, I said that we're going to talk about Ali's name on German shala because it's special how Ebeltoft chose the names of his children. His mother named him acid. So when you hear the famous narration, where ideal the Allahu anhu says, and that Ladies and matomo I am the one whose mother named him Hi, are us a lion. He was actually being authentic. This was actually a fact that his mother named him acid named him a lion. But when I came back, he didn't like the name. He was on a journey. So he changed his name to it, which means that it was shut off which means someone with great nobility and somehow hurt her
intention for him to be named a lion to be named ESET was of course realized later on when the Prophet solahart
He was Selim would refer to him as a de la as the Lion of Allah subhanho to Allah because of the way that he would carry himself in battle. There's also narrations about him being born in the cab. Now, if he was born in the cab, it wouldn't be the only he wouldn't be the only one to be born in the cab. But there's authentic narration about Hakeem Abner his, um, the nephew of Khadija, about the love of Thailand who came under his arm was also born in the cab. And so there are some narrations, as we mentioned, the idea of the longtime animal being born in the car, but as others were. Now the prophets lie some tells the story about how he came into his house, and this is narrated in it, and
Mujahid that when they were young, Grace was struck by a famine. And it made it very difficult for people with large families, especially those that were especially those that were already in poverty. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to a lab bus, of course, his his uncle, and he said to him above the level unhulled that double pileup is going through a hard time because of all of his children. How about we make things easy for him, and we take two of his children and raise them for him so that he can focus on getting himself to a financially healthy place and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had just gotten married to her the devil the allowance had on
her shortly before that. So the prophets lie, some financial circumstances have changed. So in our muscle, the low tide on who agreed, and ideal the low tide and home was literally an infant. So he was just boring. So they were talking about 10 years before the prophets lie, some receives Prophethood, five years after the prophets lie, some got married to her deja. So they go together. And they say to our boss, and the prophets lie Selim, give us your children. So we can make things easy for you, and we'll raise them for you sabaton have said, you can take you can take them so long as you leave me happy. So I will probably have insisted only on keeping our clean with him. And so
the Prophet sallallahu wasallam went up to idea of the Allahu taala and who as a baby picked him up and embraced him. And he said, I'll take him above the law of Thailand who went to Jonathan ignored the toilet and he said, I will take Java. So Java, though he was a little older than ideas we set about a decade older than it would be raised in the house of Allah bus. And it would be raised in the house of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And Khadija while the Allahu taala, Anna, and for the benefit of Valley, I want you to think about this because,
you know, mujra had mentioned this as an amazing miracle. It could have happened that the Prophet slicin could have adopted it. He could have officially made him his son like he did was eight, right. So you made Zaid Zayed bin Mohammed, it also could have been that Khadija will be allowed and he could have breastfed early, which would have made her son, an adult and for the job of the allowance had and had flowing milk, right there were other children of the prophets lie some that were born at the time of ID and had a digital the law on her breastfed ID, then he could never marry Fatima because he would have been the brother of Fatima. Right, he would have been the brother of
Fatima. So, Allah subhanho wa Taala was protecting this and obviously decreeing this as such a way that this marriage would happen from a very early age, even though it would it would have been understood. And it would have been only natural that Khadija will be low on how would either breastfeed him being a young child in her house or the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would officially adopt him and there's no actual stated reason why the prophets lie some never adopted him and why Khadija will be allowed on had did not breastfeed him except that it's a miracle from Allah subhana wa tada and something that Allah subhana wa tada was planning for him very early on. So he's
growing up in the house of the profit side cinnamon Khadija as a child of the profits license, and these are the alongside on her and he's witnessing
everything that we talked about with the profit slice I'm in a digital the allow it from the perspective of a child. So he sees the profit side. So when he comes home, the stress, the digital the olana, embracing the profit slice alum, going to watarrka obviously the federal law he witnesses that pause and Revelation where the prophets lie Selim is trying to figure out what's happening to him. And before the prophets lie, some would approach IE, or the Allahu taala. And who this young boy who was again, eight, nine or 10 years old, to talk to him about Islam, the first exposure
would be a little the Allahu taala at home, watching the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and Khadija will the Allahu taala and her pray on the first night, when suited Alma death there was, was revealed. Okay, so remember certain death was revealed to the prophets lie Selim as he was in the arms of Khadija with the law of Thailand. And Allah subhanaw taala commanded the prophets lie some to pray. Now, how the prophets lie, some would pray, was it the the Full Exposure at that point? No, it was a developing concept of Salah, but still the Prophet slicin almost starting to pray. And so the prophets lie some is praying with Khadija and Eileen notices that night and obviously I need all
the alignment has been seeing things are changing in the household of the Prophet slice of them. Something's happening here. That's not normal. Right? Our lives are changing. So his first exposure to Islam he said that I saw the Prophet sighs summon Khadija praying at night. So I waited until they finished. And I read all the law and who walks up to the prophets on the law, how it was done when he says yeah, Mohammed Mahathir said Oh, Mohammed, what is this? I have no idea what's going on. I don't know what you're doing, how you're praying. What is this? So he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responded Deen Allah, Allah de Safa. hulin FC, he will better be he
Russa. So this is the religion of Allah subhana wa tada the religion of God, which he chose for himself. And he sent messengers in accordance with that. So the prophets lie Some said to him, the ruka illallah he was the who lash ricotta, what he learned about that he was intact for Bella taylorism. So the Prophet sighs I'm told to me so I call you to Allah,
and that you worship him without associating any partners. But at the same time, you reject a lot and you reject the idols a lot. And you can realize that the Prophet sly Salaam is giving it a very serious message. He's not treating him like a child. He's not saying don't worry about it. We'll talk about this when you get older he's imparting on him the seriousness of this, this is not something small or just do what we're doing. Right? Your child does go ahead and follow along with us. He's making it very clear, to ideal the law on what he was doing now. And he says, I grew up in the house of the prophets I seldom I never worshipped an idol because the prophets lie summon
Khadija did not worship idols. So I never even worshipped an idol. But when the prophets lie some talk to me with that seriousness DeLuca it Allah, I'm calling you to Allah. Watch the hula Sri killer, no partners associated with him well in tech for the last few years, and that you disbelieve in a lot,
and it'll be a long time and
he said to the prophets lie, Selim is a very mature child, he said, how the Umrah Lama smartly he publicly. He said, Look, this is something I've never heard about until today. For us to be pardon Emraan Hector, who had difficulty he have a pilot he said, and I can't make this decision without talking to my father about it. So he said, I've got to talk to obatala first novel pilot had not heard yet of Islam. Okay. And this was the maturity of ideas all the time where he doesn't say this looks cool. Let me go ahead and do this too. He's, he gets that the prophets lie. Some is imparting a very serious message to him. He's a mature young boy says to the prophets, I some I need to talk
about Allah. He said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam smiled at me and he accepted that and he said, Islam, teslim factum, he said, Listen, if you don't become Muslim, be quiet.
Don't go blurting this out to everybody. What we're doing in this house, that's a lot to put on a 10 year old, right? Eight, nine or a 10 year old, he was between the age of eight and 10. Right? So this is what I'm doing. This is the religion This is our athlete, that this is our creed. And if you're not going to become Muslim, then that's fine. Just don't tell anybody. Okay, so you've got to keep it to yourself.
All the allot of time and Who said that? I said to the Prophet slicin. I'm okay. He said that I sat back in the room and he said, I watched the prophets lie. Someone had the job of the law and he continued to pray. When is this all happening? And you know, the law and who said the prophets lie some received revelation on Monday, I became Muslim on Tuesday. So this is the very first night
of the Prophet sly summon deja, well, the Allahu taala and her making, praying together in this way as Muslims, okay. So a little the low on Who said I watched the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Khadija praying.
that night I felt something enter in my heart. And I couldn't sleep meaning the message of the prophets.
Salam, what he was doing the words that he said to me, I kept repeating them to myself trying to comprehend what I heard from the Prophet slice alum until it entered into my heart. So he said the next morning I said to the Prophet slicin, can you remind me again what you're calling me to? Can you repeat everything that she said? So the Prophet slicin said, Sure. And he repeated the message to added all the Allahu taala on home. He said that I'm calling you to Allah. What the hula shakeela What about that he went Tukwila to Arizona to worship him without partners. And that you disbelieve in a lot and there is so little the Allahu taala and who said Islam?
I submit myself so he actually never went to a bar club to talk to him about it. He just decided the next morning to accept the message. And he said that from that day, I started to pray with the profit slice I'm in a digital the Allahu taala. And so in our vessel the amount of time on whom you know, you'll find a narration and Buhari webinar bus says Oh, woman Sala Ali. The first to pray was Eddie little de la cotinine. Whoa, what he's speaking about is this obviously, right to follow along the prophets lie Selim. And Khadija the Allahu taala. And literally on Tuesday, he says the Prophet slicin received revelation on Monday. Well, Islam too, and I became Muslim or accepted Islam. That
next morning, on Tuesday, then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam started to invite people in small groups to Islam, particularly Ben Ohashi, right so now the prophets liasons mission is to focus on his own tribe of Banu Hashim and to focus on some of the smaller the smaller groups that Allah subhanho wa Taala has called him to, to call upon
around his family, okay, so the prophets I send them would go, and before that call at a Safa. The very famous call that a Safa. There were actually family gatherings, where the prophet SAW Selim, privately starts to speak to these small groups of people, and the rumors are starting to spread amongst benu, Hashem and benomyl that the Prophet sly son is calling to a new message. So the Allahu anhu says that I used to accompany the prophets, I send them on those little trips where he would go, and he would call them to a dinner or he'd call them to a lunch and the Prophet slicin would speak to some of his immediate relatives about Islam. And he said, Sometimes I would go with the
Prophet slice of them, and it would just be me and him. And he said, but I would not speak I was obviously a little boy, so I wouldn't say anything. And he said, sometimes it was a bucket of the low tide. And when the prophets lie some well bucket was of course, just two years younger than the prophets lie Selim, he was far senior, to ideal the Allahu taala. And so he said, sometimes the profit slice I'm in trouble bucket or the Allahu anhu, who would become Muslim soon after, would go out and they would call people to Islam, and he said, I would go with them, but I would remain silent. So and he himself, being the young boy did not publicly call to Islam, but it was
understood. He's like the son of the prophets of Allah who it was set up and he's with the prophets. I said, I'm on these journeys. And then he mentions a slaughter.
Right where the prophets lie, some decides at this point, to broaden his call to make his first public call to Islam. And it's still to his family, but it's to his extended family and the Prophet's life, someone's doing it out in the open, which is when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stands on a sofa, and he starts to call the tribes to suffer. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says, If I was to tell you that there is an army that is behind that mountain, that is coming to attack you, would you believe me? And they said, of course, you're Assad. I mean, you're the truth, one, you'd never lie. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, calls them to the oneness of
Allah Subhana Allah and warns them of a harm, a punishment in the hereafter. So he presses a great sense of urgency on them. solahart he was stolen, when he's standing on a sofa, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, so who will follow me?
So before Abu lahab would curse the prophets lie Selim? The prophets lie Selim gives his message. All of these people just responded united and said, You're Assad. I mean, we would believe you. Right, if you said that there was some harm coming to us. And then the prophets lie Selim said, so who will support me?
I lead all the time and he looks around and he sees dead silence.
You imagine how you know this is what occurs message to the prophets lie Selim starting to come to him now. Right that this is serious that all of these people
Who just enthusiastically said we would support you, your Assad, or we would believe you, your Assad. Amin now are completely silent. They love the prophets lie some too much to insult him. But at the same time, they have, you know, they're completely out of sync with what the prophets lie some just said to them.
So I lead all the time and whom he raises his hand. This is his first time publicizing it says yada, yada, I will believe in you.
And what do you think that does to the situation? I need all the law on who's showing his support, but it it actually further alienates the profit slice from the crowd. It's like the only one that stood up and said Yato sold a lot. I will support you is the little boy. Right? His his little son. And that's one of what I have looks around and Abu lahab says to the Prophet science, and I'm Ted Ben nucca. Yeah, Mohammed Ali habla de marathoner. May you perish Oh Mohammed, Is this why you gathered us together? So we could gather all of our gods and worship this one God.
So Abu lahab insults the prophets lie Selim. Everyone walks away. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is completely shocked by the incident that just happens. This is there's no double bucket in this. This is his fan. This is his family. It's just the Prophet size seminar. deedle, the Allahu anhu who wanted to support the Prophet sly some enthusiastically, he walks up to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to, to support him in those difficult moments. And you can imagine what that conversation was like between the Prophet's life Simon had deja, or the Allahu taala on her that night, right? What aka who told the prophets lie, some that your people would run you out was
And Ali walks home with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was not physically harmed, but who had just gotten a taste of what was to come of the alienation. With this message, I lead all the time and who said I would walk with the Prophet sallallahu it was Sunday and he said after that the people would turn their faces. So there's a there's a clear message is being sent to the messenger slice I'm at this point and he says well lucky, every single stone and tree with gifts the lamb to the prophet SAW some in Mecca, but the people would turn their faces away from him. So you imagine the little boy walking with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in those moments, and this is of
course building character for him, as well, in Mecca, ideal the a lot of time who said that I was good at reading people's behavior. So he said that the Prophet slicin appointed me to go and to look out to see if there was anyone that was coming around that look like they were there to learn about us now. What does that mean ideal the law on host stands around the Kaaba, little boy, young young man. And he looks at the faces of those that are traveling in particular to see if there's anyone that's potentially looking for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and you know who we found, by the way up without elizalde so without will the allow and who would become Muslim specifically
through ideality alone who going through the Marketplace, looking around analyzing people's faces saying Salaam to people or interacting with the people and getting a sense of who was potentially there to to inquire about the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then you have this stunning narration. Think of the Kava right now, the Caribbean particular and think of all the people that are always there. Now, I want you to rewind to this narration. There's a man by the name of a thief al Kindi a thief al Kindi. I think Phil Kindi says,
I was a merchant and he said I came to Mecca in in the early days of Jehovah. And he said I used to stay with an Ibis and I bustle the law on who was the merchants of Mecca I bustle the law and we used to sell clothes used to sell perfume. People used to have debts within our bustle the allowance, no. So he said that I was a close confidant of a boss of the hotel. And so he said, I came to Mecca, to stay with my boss one day. And he said, I passed the camber, and the sun was at its peak, and it was like the
middle of the day, the sun was at its peak.
So he said, I saw a man, a young man facing the carrabba, with his hands raised, and a boy right next to him, raising his hands like him, and a woman standing behind them, and everybody ignoring them.
So his senses a strange sight. I saw this young man with his hands raised someone next to him raising his hands next to the cabin and a woman standing behind them doing the same.
So he said I didn't know who they were what what was happening. He said, so I watched them.
And he said, then they bow down. And then they made such the, they prostrated. So if he says that I went to an advance of the Allahu anhu. And he said I was late to him, and I told him, I just saw the strangest thing happening at the cabinet.
And then I bought says, What is it? So he told them, I saw this man standing in front of the Capitol with his hands raised, and then a young boy next to him doing the same thing. And then a woman standing behind them doing the same thing. And everybody was ignoring them, and no one was doing this ritual with them. So I busted the law and who said, Do you know who that is? He said, No. He said, that's my nephew. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what normally he really, and the son of his of his of his uncle, so his cousin Ali, and his wife, Khadija. He said, My nephew, this is an Ibis talking to a thief. He says, My nephew says that his Lord is lovable. Somehow it will out is
the Lord of the heavens in the earth. And that he's given him a new religion. And the boss said, I don't know anybody in the world that follows the religion except for those three.
said, interesting. Stated within Ibis, he did some of his trade. And then later on, he would become Muslim. Later on, even kindy would become Muslim once Islam grew. And I feel used to always cry, and he would say, I wish I was the fourth. I wish I was the fourth. Yeah, late and he couldn't to Robin, I wish I was I should have been the fourth. I should have been the fourth right. I had an opportunity in those moments, when it was just the profit slice alum. And Allie and Khadija and I could have been the next one. But instead he waited until Islam got a little bit more growth in popularity and then a fee for the ALA hotel and who would become Muslim as well. So it kind of just
gives you that instant if you think about the growth of Islam and you think about the this first family standing there worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala the at the caliber and aluminum core to be Rahim Allah to Allah he likened this to he said, it's like a Brahim Allah His Salaam and her job and is married. Think about when the cat was first built. And think about the moment of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, and is married it is Salam and how God has Salaam raising their hands to Allah subhana wa Tada. And then later on the fulfillment of that it's once again, it's a prophet, with his wife, and with his child standing in front of that house of Allah subhanho wa Taala, declaring the oneness of
Allah subhanho wa Taala. And, and showing their support to that. So I need all the allowance to maintain this position of being, obviously extremely close the first child, the first young man to accept Islam. And he also remained in poverty. Right, so the family have, obviously remained in deep poverty. And there are so many different stations and virtues. But the first one that we'll talk about, beyond just being in that close capacity to the Prophet sighs I'm in those early days, and being in that close capacity for the double the amount of time is the day of the law. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked a little the Allahu anhu to sleep in his bed, on the eve
of his departure, knowing that there was a plot to kill him, and the prophets lie some of them, asks Eileen to sleep in the bed, and to take his place. Now, there were seven tribes that conspired to kill the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And the idea was, if all seven of them had blood on their hands, then they wouldn't be able to particularly target one of them for the murder of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam so would do away with that fits enough tribalism, it wouldn't start a tribal warfare because it was so many tribes that would be implicated in the murder of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam the prophets lie Selim left idle the low tide and who there and he could
have the prophets lie some obviously had foreknowledge he could have just left and not put anyone there and they would have simply burst into the house and they would have found nobody
now having a little the law on who there gives some sort of a presence in the house so they could see the body of someone there. And the bed of the prophets, Allah lohani who was selling them when they're waiting, and I did all the long time who had no hesitation whatsoever to take his place. Not only the ideal the allowed time who's sleeping in the bed knowing that seven people are about to come in there and what are they going to do he's once they if they even take the time to uncover and to see that it's not the profit slice um, they'll probably kill them anyway. At this point, now, they're killing people regularly, right? They're persecuting the Muslims regularly. So they probably
kill them anyway. Thought of is dead who's going to take his revenge? Right comes from a poor family at this point. They probably kill them anyway. I need all the long time who said that that night
slept like I'd never slept before he was snoring
slept nice and calm peacefully, knowing that it's only a matter of time before they break into the house and they kill him or they try to kill him I needed the law and who was in complete telecoil in a loss of Hannah Montana, and even above so the alongside Andrew said that Willa he he freed every part of his body from Hellfire by putting it all on the line for the Prophet sallallahu it was some that nights right sleeping in the bed of the prophets lie Selim, knowing that they're plotting outside to bustin and to attack him. Absolutely no hesitation, absolutely. No fear, complete courage all alone, knowing that Allah subhanho wa Taala is with him. Right? And the prophets lie some is
with a bucket of the low tide on him in the cave. And Allah subhana wa tada obviously settles their hearts enzootic mas Sakina most parents Allah descends tranquility upon them and he also descends tranquility on to the how the heart of idle the low tide, I know as he did on Apple back to the study of the Allahu taala. And when the presence of the prophets lie Selim, so they bust into the house, they uncover him and then they see it's not the profit slice of them. They're disgusted a little, the longtime Einhorn just gets up and walks away. He they didn't kill him. And he's completely fine. Right. And so this was a way of Allah subhanaw taala, raising his rank, but then
look at the profit slice on them. The profit slice I'm told it, it'll be a long time home to return all of the monarchs, the trust of the people before he makes the his long before he migrates. These people are trying to kill the prophets lie Selim. And this is the moment where the prophets lie. Some has left Medina prophets lie, some could have said, You know what, if Abu Jihad wants to kill me, I'm keeping his watch.
Right, I could keep their stuff. They knew that even as they're trying to kill him that the prophets lie some would still have the honesty, to maintain their belongings, and not to do away with them. And the prophets lie some interest I need all the allowed time right after they came in, almost killed him. He said, You know, he tells him to spend some time and to go and to return all of the amount of the trust that the profit slice on him was, was holding. I need all the allowed time and who said then I made the law. And he said what law he I had no companion and I had no camel. I the walking from Mecca to Medina, with absolutely nobody and nothing. Imagine making that journey in the
desert by yourself. And they were so poor. He said I didn't have a camel I was too poor to afford a camel or a horse gave away all of the amounts of the people. And he said that, as I was making the journey from Mecca to Medina, he says that it was so hot in the daytime that he made a strategic decision that he would sleep in the daytime and then he'd wake up at night. And then a little the low tide on who would try to make up as much of the journey by himself in the desert at night to avoid dealing with the heat of the sun and the dehydration of making that journey and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was waiting for it. It'll be a long time when Koba and messengers like Salaam
would go out and look for ideas all the time and the last one to make it because I was all by myself on my foot. The prophets lie some left me there. So the prophets lie some is waiting at Koba making their app for his safety. And then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam sees him when he comes into Cuba and he embraces the low tide and who and and and induct him into this new system in Madina munawwara a little deal on who said when I got to Medina, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam paired me off, he was doing Maha. He was doing brotherhood, he paired me off with Salomon
Brothers a lot of time, son salvinorin. He was from the O stripe. And he's one of the people that was an archer that supported the Prophet slice lm embedded and very close person to it. It'll the law on who would actually live all the way to the sea latha have an idea of the low tide and who would become one of these Amir's he would actually become one of his generals in Kufa and Iraq and pass away and it would prey on him. Now what about the profit slice? I'm making him a brother to him. Right. There's some narrations, the prophets, I send them when he did them with a heart he made it his brother. And we'll actually see that next week and one of the authentic narrations where the
prophets lie some mentions that in the capacity of the marriage to fathima it doesn't seem to be a contradiction, right. So there's some that would say the narrations are not necessarily authentic, but doesn't seem to necessarily be a contradiction since there is actually an authentic narration where the Prophet sighs I'm called him his brother, that the Prophet sighs I'm still symbolically called him his brother as he
Paired the mohabbatein and the unsought and referred to him as such when he brought him there, and there is no doubt that the prophets lie some saw it or he treated the Allahu more like a brother than he did a son. Okay, so even though there are 30 years, between the prophets of Allah harneyz was seldom an idea.
You see the relationship between the profit slice on the low side and home very much so like that have a brother, the joking of alley with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does a beautiful narration or little the Alon who again, he's lived in poverty his whole life. And when faulty model the law married him, they still lived in poverty their whole lives, and the profit side son's house was one of poverty. And at the low end, who said that I used to take up these odd jobs between supporting the profit slice them in battle and being in this companionship. I needed the law on who was a contractor, right? You need someone to pick something up, you need someone to build something.
So you take these jobs with his hands. And one day, he said, I work the whole day for this woman. And she paid me in Tamil. So she paid me in, in 12, dates how how these people would work, no minimum wage in Medina, you get 12 dates for working the whole day, doing hard work in the heat. So he said when I got the 12 dates, I knew that the prophets lie, some was hungrier than I was. Right. The prophets lie. Some used to go out at night looking for food sometimes. So he said I took the 12 dates the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam sat with him. He said I took six for myself. I put six in front of the prophets lights on them.
And then we ate the dates. And he said the Sahaba came and they gathered around us. He said when the Sahaba came, I pushed my six date seeds in front of the Prophet, slice alum. So he had 12 date seeds in front of him.
And I said to the Sahaba look at what sort of lasala lohani was Salam he eats and he leaves me hungry.
That's the type of jokes that's the approachability of the prophets lie Selim. And the Prophet slice alum responded and he says look at IE when he eats his dates, he swallows the seeds.
So the prophets lie some reciprocates his jokes, right. And this was the type of relationship that they had.
Our least favorite name was able to rob the father of dust because that was the prophets license nickname for him, a blue Tulip and it was endearing to the prophets lie Selim and even in his own personal life, you see the profit slice on with signal see how would seek advice from ideal the law and who despite the large age gap and despite the fact that he would become his son in law, not just like his own son that he raised, but also would become a son in law when he marries Fatima after the Battle of bedded in the Medina, which we'll talk about in Charlottetown next week, so what are some of the other virtues?
There are some of these ideas that are so beautiful, and I'm only going to focus on the authentic ones. It's very hard to sift through when you're looking through the riots about ideas of the low tide and hope because you have some that from the perspective of the sinner exaggerated and some that are, you know, depreciating. But it was the Mt. Rahim Allah who said that there is no Sahaba of the prophets myself who had more narrations about him than I do the law of Thailand. Whoa, so the Prophet slicin, praising him, talking about his love for him and that does not take from the macom of Wilbekin or the Allahu tideline Hall or from the Hooda from our perspective, right, we'll get to
that later on. inshallah we don't see a contradiction between these two. The authentic hadith where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, men come to Mola, hufa de Mola, whoever takes me as a sincere You know, when Allah talks about the meaning and the minutes, being only out to one another, being close loved ones to one another, the believing men and believing women and the last pantai says, Allah holy, you're letting me know, Allah is the only of those who believe the prophets lie Selim says, Whoever takes me as a molar, then added all the longtime, and who is his molar.
And the monatti porn they used to, they got jealous obviously, of the relationship that the profit slice I'm hard with it, and this is something that's widely narrated, and so on the Prophet slicin went to tabuk realized the prophets lie, some would leave our little the law on who behind to do some things at times, and this was not to take away from him. This was in praise of him. So just like he left them behind in Mecca. That's not him, leaving it behind because he doesn't care about him. It's because I know the law I know has very particular qualities of trustworthiness. He's the representative of the Prophet slice alum, someone that the Prophet sly son loves dearly and ideal
the law on who was a warrior to and a warrior hates to be anywhere button battles. So you have all these stories of the you know, every single battle of ideas of the Allahu anhu taking on people that everyone else was was afraid of and the pre the pre battle, you know, duels that would take place I do the Alon who goes
forward with Hamza, the Allahu taala and who fighting the for the battle. So when the Prophet slice on winter tabuk he left it behind in Medina
to take care of the women and the children that were left behind the Medina and some of them will not be a porn they started to make fun of it, to say to him that this was a sign that the profit slice on him was putting him aside.
So, this started to annoy the alarm, because he started to think about it he said, you know is this is this some sort of
you know, degradation is am I being lowered in my status because the prophets of Allah Harney was right and left me behind. So when the prophet SAW some King back, he noticed a little the law and who was bothered by what seemed to be a demotion of sorts in the ranks, and he said to him, to idle the low tide, I'm Mr. tabla and takuna many demons acidity, how to own min Moosa. Aren't you satisfied early that you are to me like how rune was to Moosa except there is no Nabhi after me, there is no profit after me. Okay. What does that mean? When Mossad is slam left? Who did he put in charge of the people how to write and this was a sign that how Donati his Salam was on the same
wavelength as him, right? So he's leaving behind the law on Horton charge in that area in Medina not because he's taking away from him but that's the Prophet sighs I'm talking him up and saying, This is the same thing like when Musa alayhis salam put Harun in charge when he when he went to,
to Mount Sinai, Abu sorry, double the alongside and who says
this is authentic and Sahih Muslim mechana narrative narrative and whenever Vanessa pleanala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in libido, holding him nearly that we knew the hypocrites in the time of the Prophet slicin them by their hatred of a little the Allahu taala animal, and a little the Alon who used to say also an authentic hadith. He used to say that the Prophet slicin told me that no one except a woman would love me and no one except the hypocrite would hate me that only a woman loves it, it'll be a lot of times and only a hypocrite would hate him. A Muslim includes this. Right after the Hadith is munafo, Bolden unsought white men have been unsolved where
the prophets lie. Some said that the sign of a believer is their love for the unsolved and the sign of a hypocrite is their hatred of the unsought and then specifically the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam specified it, it'll be a lot of time with that type of love.
There's also the narration of hype up where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Battle of hiber said that tomorrow I'm going to give the banner to someone who loves Allah and His messenger and who is beloved to Allah and His Messenger, sallAllahu wasallam and Omri hopital the law and who said I never wanted so badly a position of leadership. Then that day, and the prophets lie Selim kept the people waiting. And then the next morning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called it it'll be a long time where he called for it an ideal the allow I know had an issue with his eyes where he couldn't even see
so the profit slice that took some of his saliva and he applied it to the eyes of the law of Thailand when it could see once again and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam gave him the banner and Allah subhana wa tada granted him victory in on his hands. So that was also one of the the moments where the profit slice of them really gave ideally a lot of time and a special type of love in those moments, and masago can hack in there's an authentic hadith where a man said to Solomon and Pharisees all the law of Thailand, how extreme is your love for illegal the law? I know and he said, I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, whoever loves him loves me and whoever hates
him, hates me. And we'll see some of those ahaadeeth next week in Charlottetown with a little bait with the family of the Prophet slice and I'm from the books of the sinner. Finally, a very special narration because I love anything that has to do with gibreel it his Salaam, also an Sen. Sahih Muslim Imam Ahmed, that the Prophet sly some looked at Abu Bakar and early on the day of bed, and he said to them, Maha de Kumara gibreel. Woman, Mika, he, one of you right now has jabril with you and the other one has Mika in alayhis salam we know that the Mullah Ico was sent on that day of better to support the believers. So the prophets lie some settable bucket into IE, one of you has gibreel
the other one has Mika l with them as you fight on the day of bed. And I want to end with this because it's really interesting because again, you can't talk about ideas all the time without the politicizing of it right and if you talk too much about him, even from the authentic ahadeeth
Then, are you exaggerating? Are you sure these are from our books? Right? There's a counter reaction. And then sometimes there's a fear of talking about the love of ideas or the law. I know because it would suggest somehow that you're taking away from the other companions in the capacity of that discussion. And guess who else was accused of this you mama chef.
A chef safaree Rahim Allah has pomes one of the four imams of Allah center where they accused him of being Shiri because he loves it too much. And he talks about a little bit too much. This is a part of our sin. This is a part of the Prophet, slice alum. And he says that in Cana them be early Mohammed for that he kudumbam loves to earn a tube instead of loving the family of the Prophet slicin. I'm a sinful than that is a sin for which I will never repent. loving them is what the prophets lie some taught us to do and loving our little the lot of time and without the exaggeration, that would that would contradict some of our credo points is part of our religion.
It's part of who we are. And it's not something that we should shy away from. And again, I could go on and on and on about him. We'll reserve some of it next week inshallah to talk about the makings of that marriage. With faulty model the lowdown on how we ask Allah to be pleased with him and to be pleased with the family and the companions of the Prophet sly summoned to join us with them along with me.
