Both Ali and Fatima were raised by the beloved Prophet ﷺ and had a special place in his heart. They were married by the Prophet ﷺ then counseled by him. Through their blessed marriage, a community came together and a community remains inspired. They faced obstacles that we all face in our marriage but by the guidance of Allah, the advice of the Prophet ﷺ, and the faith in their hearts, they were able to pull through and leave behind one of the greatest examples of a marriage ever to exist. And in studying this blessed family, we get to see our Prophet ﷺ in a new light: as a loving father, grandfather, and father in law.
We're continuing now in the series. And these next two are crucial, because what I really wanted to do is to as much as possible, get into the house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And really understand the dynamics of that household, and how things are forming, especially in the early days of Islam. And so as I was putting together all of these notes and getting into these small narrations where you often get these snapshots into the lives, and you know, someone asked last week, a very important question where when it is talking about being in the household of the Prophet slice that I'm in being the only one to sort of witness the pm witness the night prayer of
the prophets lie summon Khadija with the Aloha, where is Zaid, where are the other children what's happening here, and Allah knows best we we can only take what we can take from the narrations themselves, of course, the way that families were raised back to them, where kids were sleeping, aunts, uncles, it's a village type feel, right, Allah knows best. But hopefully what we can do through this series is start to inshallah take these isolated snapshots and then go one by one and start to see the trajectory through the eyes of that person that enters very early in into this, this story, this magnificent story of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then through
that, to be very honest with you, you're not just gaining an appreciation for each one of these savvy horn, each one of these firsts. But really, each and every single one of these stories makes you fall in love with the profit slice, I'm all over again. Because one of the things that fascinates me is how he was able to make all of these people feel so special. You know, when you read the biographies of the companions, sometimes you really think like this person is the most important person in the story, and then you read the next story. And that's the ability of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to treat his family and his companions in a certain way, that he
wasn't just ignoring, you know, ignoring them and then focusing on this person here and this person there. However, the actual family of the profit slice um, if he treated his companions this way, imagine what it was like to actually be his blood, imagine what it was like to actually be in his household and to be treated in a certain way. And so each one of these is going to give us a different perspective. But these next two in particular really building off of last week's where we talked about early on the allot of time, who will give us a very special look at the life of the Prophet slice them and at the household of the Prophet slice and I'm at this family of the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So before we get into the marriage of alien Fatima, quick recap of ideal the alongside IMO, and then let's bring faulty model the law into the story, and then talk about these two coming together. So with what with it, we said his mother's name was what? I'm going to test your knowledge. Fatima. So we said there were a lot of Fatima's right. There were a lot of hints, and there were a lot of Fatima's. Those are the two names that you constantly see popping up a lot of people named hinze, a lot of people named Fatima. So, Fatima bint what what is his mother's full name? Fatima bint acid. And the way you can remember that is that we said she wanted to she
actually named him first assets after her father which means lion. Okay, fall tema bent acid. And we said that she was the first What?
She was the first herself. Does anyone remember?
The first not policing Muslim?
The first Hashimi woman to accept Islam, Hashem was the tribe of the Prophet slicin bento Hashem. So she was the first woman who was the Hashemite from the actual family of the Prophet slice of them from his tribe to accept this now and we said that she was about the 11th person, the 10th, or the 11th person to enter into Islam when you look into the order. Also another mother like figure to the Prophet slice on them, right there's a man and then there is faulty man who raises the prophets lie Selim is a motherly figure from the age of six to 25 accepted Islam very early on, made the migration to Abyssinia, lived through the boycott made the migration to Medina went through all the
hardships alongside the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
And he was born about as we said, 10 years before Prophethood so about the year 600. Exactly. Between 600 602 he was born and he supports the Prophet sallallahu wasallam right away. We talked about how the Prophet peace be upon him brought it to the Allahu anhu into the house, he told his uncle abas let's go to Appleton and help him out with his poverty. So let's let's take two of his children and raise them ourselves so that Apple pilot could deal with the poverty
In his household, the Messenger of Allah goes with a bus. And they take Java or the Prophet slicin, walks up to it and grabs him by bus walks up to Jaffa, and he takes him and both of them would raise those two until they reached their adulthood. And we also said that one of the miracles is that Khadija did not breastfeed Ali, which would have made her which would have made him hold on for Fatima, which would have made him like a son, effectively a son to Khadija had she breastfed him. But for whatever reason, it's the mercy of Allah to ideal the love from the wisdom of Allah and how that would play out. She never actually fed it all the time, even though he was of that age. And
though it was natural for a child to be fed by a mother that had flowing milk in those days. So that's it, you know, the lower enemy comes into the house, as we said, accepts Islam right away. And that sight of the prophets lie Selim Khadija, an early praying in front of the Kaaba praying theme all alone, there was something there. Now, let's talk about faulty model, the Allahu taala and how she comes into and her nickname and Habiba to mental heavy, the beloved one, the daughter of the Beloved one on the Allahu Tada, may Allah be pleased with her and send his peace and blessings upon her father and her mother. She was born.
According to most historians, she was actually born in the first year of prophethood. Okay, so according to many of the many of the scholars like you've been asked about hacking, have been hijacked. She was born, the year that the Prophet slicin received revelation. So think about her birth, which would mean you know, that when Khadija de Lyonne, who was running up and down, hit up to help the profit slice, I'm going through that stress, she could have been pregnant with her sixth child, or fifth or sixth child, because there's dispute about whether Abdullah is older or younger than Fatima, or she would have been an infant. So according to some she was born either right before
Prophethood. So she was literally a baby, when the prophet SAW some received revelation, or she was born right after the Prophet, slice and receive revelation in that very first year. So that's a special child. Right, just the circumstances of her birth to come in during that time period of the profits liasons life where he just received revelation.
And this is a gift that a lot of gifts to them, is special in and of itself. So she was the last of the Prophet sallallahu it was sent him his daughter.
And I mentioned I believe in narration and when we were talking about digital the law that the way that the naming worked was how the prophets lie some named the boys, Khadija named the girls and so Khadija named her Fatima who can guess why?
Because guess what, Khadija his mom's name was Fatima. So her mother was faulty ma Benza EDA. So Khadija named her after her mother about the Allahu taala on her. And the word Fatima has an interesting meaning to it. So we said Khadija means what? I'm going to keep on quizzing you guys on the past halaqa so you can get it in inshallah, except Khadija means what does anyone remember what the name Khadija means?
See, Wanda is going through her notes.
Where are you guys have Where's everyone?
premature, Khadija means premature. So and it's a very, there's no one else named Khadija. Alright, so the indication is that she was born very early for her to be given the name Khadija premature fathima comes from the term fault limb, which is a baby that is full term and weaned. It's like the opposite. It's really interesting. Khadija is premature. Fatima is full term and weaned.
And, you know, it's really you know, so some of the scholars are some really, you're not really looking at Islamic scholars here you're looking at, I was reading what some of the scholars of language said they said that, it could be that the Arabs use this name to indicate a very healthy girl that a girl was healthy, full, obviously, or you're naming after another fathima. But that that's the origin of it, right full term weaned, went through the whole process of being a baby. But of course, as we said in the case of Fatima, it's after the mother of Khadija and uphold the law. I know it says something very beautiful. He said that. Verily, Allah has weaned Fatima and her
offspring off from fire from from the fire of Johanna from her birth. So Allah has weaned her and her children off of that, that she would not touch it or or or drink from any of its punishment. So let's go through the children of the Prophet slice on them right quick and Khadija will the allow time.
first child is who
you guys are going to make this helical is so much longer. So if you know the answer I suggest that you say it or if you think you're close to say it
the first one is actually possible, right? Because I want you to get the full picture possum was born around 12 years before Prophethood and he lived for about three years. So you know, we know that the sons of the prophets lie some died right away, but possum actually lived about three years so this was a very painful to their first child and died of some illness in the hands of Khadija and, and the prophets lie Selim, Zainab, the oldest daughter of the Prophet slicin was born about 599, a year after possum. And then there is Rokia who was born about two years after that year 601. And then there's uncle soon who some scholars say is less than a year younger than rokeya. So uncle
film is immediate after it'll kill you. And then there is Fatima and we said Fawlty was born around the year 610, when the Prophet slicin received revelation. And then there's Abdullah, who died at birth, okay, or very close to birth. And then there's the last son of the Prophet sly son who was born, of course in Medina, the only son not from Khadija but from Nadia and his name was Ibrahim very good. Okay, so those are the seven children of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So Khadija is the only child that actually grew up in Islam. Okay, that was born and raised in Islam, whereas the others were not what's going on in the household of the Prophet slice them at the time. But okay,
yeah. And Uncle foom. We're both engaged on the prophets. I seldom received revelation. Does anyone know who they were engaged to
the children, the two sons of Abu lahab. That becomes very difficult. The man who cursed the Prophet slice alum who stopped him and humiliated him in public, his uncle, Abu lahab, who humiliated him and then added all the low on heroes to his defense, that young child, both of the prophets lysosomes daughters were engaged to earth and rotate the, the children of Abdullah Herbert Bernard Tabor, engaged now engagements at that time, of course, would take place very early on they these marriages were arranged very early on. So you know, little pay was only about seven on consumers about six. When you say engaged, that just means that it's understood that when they come of age,
there'll be married. There'll be married to these to these people. Zainab was already married and her husband's name anyone know, clo tests. Alas of neurobion. So Xena, the oldest is married to an awesome and well Dr. Rocha is engaged to Aruba ibn Abdullah hub.
Uncle film is engaged to rotate in a be the hub and you just have now Fatima are the Allahu Tatiana. When Fatima was born, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and again it could be the timing of it. I mean, that could have a lot to do with it. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam immediately looked at her in a different way absolutely fell in love with this baby girl of his. And it's so much so that when Allah revealed what ended actually, after being warned your closest relatives call out to your closest relatives and warn your closest relatives. The Prophet slicin stood up and he said he only called two people by name. He said yes, Sophia didn't Abdulmutallab Sophia was the mother of
Zubair. Okay, Sophia is the mother of Isabel the aunt of the Prophet sly Simon. She was very close. Yeah, Sophie, I've been to Abdullah Yeah. Fatima Ventura su de la. Oh Fatima, the daughter of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam suddenly machete mean Molly asked me anything that you want of my wealth, anything that you want of my property law. I'm Nicola camino La Jolla. I cannot testify on your behalf or I don't I cannot do anything for you with God on the Day of Judgment. What that means is that you know how much I love you my closest and you know, I've been harder says the fact that the prophets lie some name those two was for a reason Sophia was his favorite aren't close to
him. Well, Carla, and she, she's, she's a special on to the Prophet, slice alum. And Fatima was on you know, this unbelievably beloved child to the Prophet Sly Stone. So he's saying even YouTube, and that's a message to everyone else. You have a responsibility before a lot that is an individual responsibility. And it is not something that can be bought with money, I can't protect you, you have to do your part and answer the call of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's why when the prophets lie Selim was even asked when, if you remember the 40 Hadith on on social justice, and we talked about this this narration where there was a rich woman, a powerful woman that stole and the
They asked Osama Abu Zaid to go talk to the Prophet slice them and see if he can let it go because she's she's a very powerful woman. And it's not right to punish someone who's so powerful. And the prophets lie. Some said even if Fatima was to steal, she would be punished. There's no favoritism here because you know where Fatima is, to me, the fact that I would even punish Fatima, I'm not going to let someone go because, or you know, not hold someone accountable because they're from some powerful class or because they belong to something that is that is that is there. So there's some elements now that come into the household of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Later on, fast forward
to the death of her deja vu all the Illa Juana the mother of Fatima or the Allahu taala and her, the wife of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
when Khadija passed away,
she was in the profit slice on would be attacked because remember, Khadija died around the same time, only three days apart according to some narrations from doubleton. So the prophets lie some would be viciously attacked in public at this point. Now he had no physical protection on the outside. And when the prophets lie, some would come home covered in blood, which, by the way, according to some of the scholars have said, there were eight times that the Prophet son was publicly beaten eight times. So we know of thought and we know but eight times that someone was thrown on him or he was punched or he was hit. So when the prophets lie, some is in public, he's
fair game. When he comes home wounded. It's faulty model de la Honda that takes the role of playing the role that Khadija will the lavonne he used to play. She's the one that really steps in, and that starts to, to protect the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
It has some of the low on on who says that Fatima would be the one to clean the wounds of the Prophet slicin them and how old was she about 10 years old? Think about that burden 10 year old girl walking up to her father so ally seldom having to clean up his wounds and comfort him when Khadija all the love on her was missing. And everyone knew Fatima's closeness to the profit slice of a 10 year old girl. And at the age of 10. What was she nicknamed?
The mother of her father, because of the Hannah the love and the compassion she would show to her father, when she would see the profit slice I'm struck by her It's like she was another mother to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and one of the most painful narrations the Prophet sighs I'm hated to see her in pain, absolutely hated to see her in pain because he knew as a young girl that's been exposed, she didn't see the the days of comfort and ease, which were really you know, right before Prophethood where the Prophet slicin was at the max of his wealth of his of his of his credibility and society. She didn't have that childhood, her childhood was all oppression. Her childhood was
witnessing her father rejected beaten her mother becoming frail, dying due to the boycott, she witnessed all the hardship and the most one of the most painful narrations and this was the peak of humiliation of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam was that because now he's fair game and they'd kick him in public punch him in public humiliate him spit at him in public Abuja
challenge the real commitment be more eat real quick and every morning it was a powerful man in Mecca. And these are now the elites playing games with the profit slice them at this point of Apocalypse not here. We're not showing him any regard whatsoever. And the profit slice has been rejected from thought if he doesn't have anyone to protect him. Abu gehele tells he challenges me more he says you really want to humiliate him. He said next time he comes to the cabinet because the prophets lie some would still walk to the cabinet and pray even as they kick him even as they spit on him he'd still go and pray by himself he doesn't have the double the lawn with him anymore. He
says to equipment every morning Why don't you take the insides of a camel slaughter a camel and take all of its guts all of its intestines all of its nastiness collect them and the next time the prophets lie some is praying in front of the cab go dump them on his back. This is just you know complete humiliation right utter humiliation so we're gonna be worried Of course he says yes. And Eric we're gonna be more It was a was a huge man size of Abuja had an Omar big man. And so he collected all of that filth and they they watched the profit slice and waited for him to go into such that into prostration. And then he came in he dumped it all on the back of the profit slice on
them. And it was so heavy on the back of the profit slice of them that it caused his body to collapsed. So it wasn't like just the filth. Right complete humiliation. Even Mr. Trudeau the law. I know he narrates this incident because even Mr. Rude was someone that was almost beaten to death already next to the cab but we'll talk about him at some point. He was a small man didn't have a tribe didn't
Have any protection. So he goes to the house of the prophets license
to let the household know what had happened. The only one he finds 10 year old girl Fatima. Well, the 11 and tells faulty man, that your father, you know what's happening to her father that your father has been crushed by these camel guts. He's being humiliated. Everyone's laughing at him, mocking him.
And Fatima gladiola and her comes running out of her house to the house goes to the profit slice alum, crying so heavily
and scratching the guts off of the back of the profits license. Think of that scene. Right? This is the daughter of the woman that held him when he received revelation. And think about how painful it was for the prophets license. right this is you never want to see your children. See like that right? This is a next level of humiliation. So and this is a long narration the prophets lie Selim. This was one of the only times he actually prayed against his people. Meaning he prayed against a Buddha made against him but it's not often that the prophets lie so that makes against an oppressor almost always his prayers are for them. But he actually makes against Abuja had an urban be more eat
in that moment. He sees the pain of faulty model the allowance. He comforts her and listen to what he says. He says lots of key Don't cry in Allah nacion about key.
God will support your father. Allah will give victory to your father Don't cry, Allah will give victory to your father. And it didn't calm her tears. So the prophets lie some that's when he raised his hands and he prayed against Abuja and urban Aviemore eight and those that had humiliated the Prophet slice of them in front of his father. Another narration
after Khadija had died, where the prophets lie Selim C's faulty model de la hora and again this is a girl that's been through what no girl should have to go through. Right that deeply loves her father witnessed that pain. And he says to her Kay Fatah GD Nikki yagoona Yachty How are you? Oh, my daughter. And she says in Nila whadya I'm in pain. What in the hola z Duma B and malita Amon Kula sudden what's increasing my pain even? We don't even have food to eat. Right? The prophets lie some did not even have food, right? He goes days and nights hungry. And she's saying we don't have foods I'm in emotional pain. And I'm in physical pain. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam responds and he
says, Oh my daughter Anna tell Dean and Nikita you yeda to Nisa anime said oh my beautiful daughter Aren't you pleased that you are the master of all women? You are the leader of all women the women of all the world look at the the knowledge understanding adapt of this young girl Fatima all the low Anna she says yeah, but T for no money. I'm up not too long. She said oh my father but then where's Mary the mother of Jesus? What about money? Um, how can I be the leader of the woman of the world? What about money? Um, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said tilka say either to Nisa, or me her father Heather Maria mo hydro Nisa, Almaty, Malia Khadija to hydro Nisa, Mattel, Karina, he
said that she was the leader of the women of her time. And in that sense, Miriam was the best woman of her times, and Khadija was the best woman of her times. So there's difference between Sega and hadal. The best woman of all time, is medium. And the best woman of her time is your mother Khadija and Fatima. The Lavanya is one of those who perfected her faith. So to the Prophet slice I mentioned for women who perfected their faith, had perfect faith. And that was Maria Garcia, Khadija Fatima so Fatima and her mother imagine to woman women that had perfect email, right, that had perfect faith. And some of the scholars they said, Why Fatima? Why does she have perfect faith and not the other
Daughters of the prophets license? They were surely beloved to the profits license. But why fathima a law, the law of Thailand and some of the scars they said number one, this is a gift from Allah that Allah gives to people right? This is Fatima would exert herself in worship, and you'll see her in her lifetime. she resembles the Prophet slicin more than any other human being. We'll talk about that no one resembles the Prophet, like file team. She was a copy of the prophets license and that translated also into her nobility, her worship, and
did not do so some of them said because she was born into the days of hardship, and as opposed to her son, and as opposed to her sisters. She grew up watching her father tortured and she was the one playing the role of Khadija supporting the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam she spent her three years of her childhood in the boy
She never saw the days of wealth like the other children of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she made the hedra with her father. So she actually migrated with the prophets license to Medina at the age of 13 years old, and she migrated with her sister uncle soon, the prophets lie Selim sodha been to zemana
Isha? Well the Allahu taala and an etias mother omro man, which is the wife of Abu Bakr, may Allah be pleased with them all. So they all migrated to Medina together. So Fatima is attached to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam throughout his most difficult days. She is a woman who perfects her faith. I mentioned the qualities, the names, does anyone remember from cultiva? What were other two names?
z coming. Some of you are going to say it. Okay. Zaha, which means the radiant face. She had a radiant face like her father faulty model the law and when you looked at her face, it was just full of, of nude full of light, just like the face of the prophets lie Selim. And also there's one more and batool someone was listening to my ultimate
and the tool, all right, which means the one who's turned back to Allah speaks to her worship turn back to God. So speaks to her worship speaks to her Zohar asceticism, and her and her and her shut off her nobility. So anyway, they get to Medina.
And now we start to see how does it really and how did the Ali and Fatima story happen? Okay, by the time they migrated, it was too old to live in the house of the Prophet Sly Stone at that point. Okay, because he had become old enough to where he was of age and so he was separated from Fatima even though he grew up with Fatima and he was close to Fatima and AIDS so they grew up together. But I need all the allow on who had moved on and that's why when they got to Medina, the prophet slice alum, paired him off with saladna Hanif as a brother and the home of chromosome Manhattan, a man by the name Cozumel had them that's where all the young single guy stayed in Cuba. So when they made
heads at all the young singles went to the house of Khartoum and Brunel had them or the Allahu taala. And so when the prophets lie, some got to Medina at that point again, Ali rhodiola and who is grown he lives outside of the house of the profit slice alum. As for faulty model, the law on how she still lives in the house of the profit slice them so when they're building the house, in Medina, she's there she's right there with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And what was the love of the Prophet slice? I'm like, for Fatima, it was to a point that it used to make the others in the family of the profit slice. I'm a little jealous. Okay, and it it'll be Alon who was one of them.
Some of news aid about the law. I know he says that one day I was sitting. So this is now before it marries fathima. We were in we're in Medina and Ali and Ibis sought permission, Uncle the profit slice I'm an RD sought permission to enter. So they came in. And
the profit slice I'm asked to sama, do you know why they're coming at this time? They said no. He said, No. So they came in. And they sat. And they said to the profit slice them that we've come to you to ask you, who is the most beloved of your family to you? We were having a debate,
trying to figure out who do you love most from your family? Now there's a similar narration where I'm going to be lost as the Prophet slicin I'm, have been nasty, like, Who's the most beloved of people too, and he said, his wife, and then he said, abubaker, a Buddha, right? And then on here, it's like very specific, like from the family. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He said, Habu le la Fatima. So the most beloved of my family to me, is Fatima. My daughter was really interesting, because in the other narration, when he responded to Ahmed Ahmed said, No, no, no, I mean from the men. Like it was weird for you to say that you loved your wife and you loved your daughter that much, right. So they had a similar understanding said, Yama, Sula. We're not talking about that we're talking about from the men.
We get you love your daughter Fatima. There is no there's no comparison to her. And in this narration, the prophet sighs MCs who some of Noseda and the prophets lie Selim says, I have le la man annamma la hora de he went to LA he who sama urbanization said, well, the most beloved of of the young men in my family are the one who is the one who Allah favored and I have favored husana nauset, who was the son of the adopted son of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, who was Osama's mother. See if someone can catch it. We talked about her own Amen, good. So some of muzej so the Prophet slicin was talking about something and then the prophets lie Selim said, some not even be thought of
then he said an idea of navitat. So he said to the prophets lie Selim.
JOHN Mack, hit a home, you made your uncle the last of them. And you talked about Fatima and then hussin and then it and then you left me out. I'm your uncle. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sadly an early conservative hakab in his life. He said that he made his law before you and he migrated before he took some time to embrace Islam and to come to the Prophet slice on said that. What does this mean now what are the implications? Here's some beautiful narrations about what this would look like in Medina. So baml the law he narrates, he said when the prophets lie, some would leave Medina. The last person he would sit with is Fatima. And when he returned, the first person he
would sit with was Fatima. Anytime the Prophet slicin left Medina, last person he's gonna sit with his daughter Fatima, first person he's going to sit with when he comes back, is his daughter Fatima. Booth. Allah gets more specific. He says when the Prophet sly Ceylon used to go on a journey or a battle. The first thing the Prophet slicin would do was he'd go to the masjid, pray to records, then he would go to the house of Fatima and he take his time.
So it's not like he just kind of go say somebody comes after Fatima would move on obviously and get married. But it just shows you the love and the preference. And then he would visit his spouse to sallallahu wasallam. So before he would even go to his as watch before you even go to his wives, he go to his daughter, Fatima. What are the Allahu tada and the last person to see before traveling, the first person to see when he got back. Even when she got married. That was the place of Fatima or the Allahu taala Anna and what a father the Prophet slicin um, is one a lesson in fatherhood, just like everything else, he sets the standard. Here's what he shall allow and he says about Fatima and
the relationship with the prophets license. She says Model A to A hadn't ashba has something well done. Well, I hadn't be Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 50 ami he will Kuru de when Fatima vinta rasulillah. She said I've never seen a person who resembled the Prophet slice of them. In his look in his walk in His guidance and his character in everything that he did. Even in his standing up and sitting down the way the Prophet slicin would sit down and the way he'd stand up. Fatima looked exactly like him. She acted exactly like him. She was she was a copy of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And then he says, we can have either the hola la de Palma, la when she
would enter into a room no matter what the province liason was in the middle of, he would stand up for her
cabana and then he walked up to her and he kissed her on the forehead. And then he would hold her hand for less than half image this E and the profit slice on would sit her down where he was sitting. Look at this honor. And she says about fancy mobile deola on her. She says what qanat either de la la jolla and when the profit slice on would enter upon any gathering or any setting that she was in, she would rush comet minmax lycia she would stand up she'd rushed to the profit slice Allah cabella to she kissed him on the forehead, she'd hold the profit slice on his hand as the set to female they see how she'd sit him down in the in the in the chair or where she was
sitting. And she adds one thing what kind of took up below we can add to cart below your day he she would kiss both of his hands.
Right? That's just a special relationship that everyone sees. You don't interfere with that relationship. You you admire it, you love it. And this was the society where people used to bury their daughters alive. Think about that, right? Where a lot talks about the the way they treated their daughters that when they would get the news that they had a daughter or a girl.
You would see their their faces, their faces darkened. And this isn't that society. But the prophets lie Selim is honoring his daughter that way. What a father. Right. And you can't i can't think of any father that does that for his daughter to that extent. Right. And that's a lesson for all of us, especially SubhanAllah. You know, it's it part of that part of that was certainly the loyalty of the Prophet slicin in the same way with Khadija that he has to honor her, because Khadija did things for him that no one else did. Fatima did things for the profit slice them that no one else did. And the profit slice and I'm honored that to a great extent. So anyway, Ali and Fatima grew up together.
Now, let's get to the marriage. When does the marriage take place? The Battle of bed that just took place there in Medina.
There was a great incident of sadness of tragedy that happens
on the day of better Does anyone know what it was?
Anybody they called it the day of great joy and the day of great sadness because it was the victory of the Battle of bedeutet. But there was a day of great sadness to
the death of rock
A year the daughter of the profit slice on Nokia got sick before bed did and that's why Earth mount of an iPhone did not go to the Battle of bed that he stayed back and he took care of it okay took permission from the profit slice of them to take care of Nokia and Nokia died on the same day that better was one. So while the harbor is celebrating, and this was a great victory from Allah, The news comes that the daughter of the prophets lie Selim has died, and that replay, and that is Manuel de la and who was in great sadness and they were sad both for the prophets lie Selim, and for this man because this man was a very special and beloved person. What did the prophet SAW some do after
the death of little play? Yeah, he married on consume.
Earth model the law on who the new rain the possessor of two lights married on consume of the Allahu taala and the next daughter of the prophets license. So at this point, now, Xena is still in Mecca. She's with a loss of an obeah. Rokia was married to Earth man actually went to avicennia. With Earth man passed away. Uncle Sam has moved out from the house and lives with, with with with her husband and family a lot of time. So Fatima is the last one in the household of the prophets I seldom. Now can you imagine? If you love the prophets lie Selim. Right? And you saw how much he loves this girl. And she is the female version of him.
Can you imagine how many people wanted to marry Fatima on the low on her. So at the top of that list of Rebecca and Roma both proposed for the hand of Fatima right. Both of them came to the Prophet slice alum, first of all Beckett and then Alma and they asked for hint. The Prophet slice of them said in tableau, we help Baba he said, Just wait, give me some time. And then the profit slice I'm such he's young. Meaning he had someone else in mind. When the prophet SAW some turns away, well, Beckett and Omar, something's up.
That means he has someone else in mind for her. Right? Because you're not going to turn away a bucket in Oman unless there's something special planned. And of course, Rebecca and Omar are closer to the age of the Prophet slice them. So there's someone else that the Prophet slice that, um, has his eye on. So
how do we get it into the picture? One of the coolest things about this long narration is narrated by Al Hassan. So it's How I Met Your Mother narrating from Le fathima how my parents met or how they got married, right. So I need all the law and Who says that? I thought about it. But I was like, he turned away a double bucket and almost no way I have a chance. Right? So whoever he's got his eye on? It's not me. Right? I need all the law on hold thought there is no way the profits lie. So I was thinking about me. So the year is right after that, actually. So you're 622 or 623 I do the law. They're still young, it is about 23 faulty was about 16 years old. They're still pretty young. Now
marriage age was much younger than 16 people would get married 1011 1213 at that time, right? Children are different we're different at the time right? So a little the law animal he tells this narration he says that I was sitting in the household of someone from the family so it was like his aunt or an uncle one of the the hashemites and he said that the family started to talk to her he said why don't you go ask for the hand of Fatima they said particularly there was a an old female servants in the household we don't know her name from the narration but you can kind of get the picture
she said to the title the law and you know I think the prophets lie some has his eye on you
and a little the law and said bad Rebecca and Roma think you think he's gonna marry his daughter to me if he turned away a little bucket and Omar no way so he said she kept on pushing me until finally I said to her well her in the shade and that is our job he you think I have anything to get married with I don't own anything. I'm poor. Remember we talked about the poverty of value? So even if I went to the profits license, I don't even have enough for a mob for a dowry for a gift for a wedding. I can't afford anything. How am I gonna go to the prophets lie Selim? She said listen
if you go to the Prophet slice alum he'll he'll marry his daughter to you so maybe she had a hint or whatever it is, but she said he will do it. And then a little the Allahu says abubaker Rama inside of his mouth, said one of the Chiefs in Medina. They all encouraged me to go ask for her hand. So meaning either the prophets lie some confided in double Beckett and Alma that he is the one or they just had a feeling like he's he's probably got his eye on you. Right. So after all of these people tell him to go to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said, finally I gathered the courage to go to him to ask for a hint.
So he said, I got to the house of the prophets lie some of them feeling
Confidence I can do this. Imagine the pep talks to himself. He says I sat in front of the prophets lie Selim and he said I completely went silent. I could not say a word. And he says Jelena 10 waverton, Isla de su de la, just out of the glory and the respect the love of the prophets license. I couldn't say a word. So he says, I sat in front of the prophets, I saw them. And I stuttered a few times mumbled a few words. And the prophets lie, some was looking at me.
So after some time, the prophets lie, some says, magic, because you have not on me. What brought you to me? Son of my uncle.
And I need all the love and who was so eloquent, one of the most eloquent men amongst the companions of prophets lie some, he said, I tried to say a few words and I made no sense whatsoever. And I was shaking, sweating, nervous, shivering, the prophets lie. Selim said, Allah can be had, do you have? Do you need something? Are you okay?
And he said that I still couldn't say anything. So he said, finally, the prophets lie Selim. He smiled at me. And he said, la la caja 30 tuber Fatima. Maybe you came to ask for Fatima's hands.
He knows why he's there. Right. So I'm gonna make it easy for you. I look at it. And he talks about Fatima. He said, maybe you came to ask for Fatima's hand in marriage. So he said I put my head down. And I said now I'm not gonna lie. So messenger of Allah. He said, Okay, good. Do you have anything to you have a gift? You have a Maha Lakshmi Maha?
A little dilla. Anna said, I actually don't have a model. I don't have anything to get married with. So the prophets lie. Some pointed to his daughter pointed to a shield. He said, You've got that right.
He said, yeah. prophets. I said, How much is it worth? He said about four denims does nothing. Right? for silver coins for denims profits. I said, go sell it and come back to me and bring that as a Mahajan. That's good enough for a gift. SubhanAllah now you see
Fatima and then you see a whole community that is absolutely ecstatic. To see this marriage of these two people that are so beloved to the Prophet slicin. So prophets lie some then went to Fatima, I needed the law on home, easiest proposal ever.
Hardest and easiest ever, right? He said that he only had to say a total of like four words, walks out.
And he got it. Right. He was the one that the prophets lie some had his eye on for fathima. So he goes out now the prophets lie some has to go to Fatima and asphaltum if she wants to marry it, faulty model de la and he wanted to marry it. But to have your father come and ask you what that means. The profit slice I'm coming to her and asking her saying, you know, our little the low on who came and asked for your hand. Are you okay with it? Right faulty model, the low end had turned red, completely overtaken by higher by modesty, which couldn't say a word. The province ICM is dealing with two people that are not speaking and formulating this marriage, putting it all together. Right?
So the prophets lie Selim acaba, he made sure, and this is where the silky ruling actually that in marriage, if you know because the woman has to consent, right, that's one of the rulings, right. But if you ask her, and you're very explicit, and she doesn't want to actually say yes, but she kind of indicates where she stayed, then that could then that that can suffice as her approval for the marriage. Right? Because the prophets lysozyme said, Do you have any objection, and she couldn't say anything. So the prophets lie Selim took that affirms that her quietness was not because of rejection, he knows his daughter, but because of her modesty, her heya she just didn't want to come
out and say yes. Right. So and there's a very funny narration
while they were discussing arrangements, so now the prophets lie, some got added all the law and we got Fatima. And this is where the, the the, I'm going to shatter your image of the Sahaba physical image of the Sahaba a little bit. All right. So the Prophet sly son was talking to faulty model the law about the marriage and the law and who was known to have a big stomach. Surprise, surprise. Big men right at the low end, whose biceps were the biggest biceps amongst us the harbor, they said that if you put two hands around the bicep, the valley you couldn't close your hands. But he also had a stomach and 13 out of the 11 and he joked with the profits all the lies that um, she says a Western
alien alien button. You married me to the man with the big stomach. All right. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam laughed, and he said in hula Oh, well, it was heavy Solomon accardo Homer illman or Alamo home Hellman
beautiful description. prophets lie Selim said he was the first of my companions to embrace Islam. The most of them acknowledge a thorough home element. What are Obama home headman, he has great patience, him his forbearance the way you treat people, right patience with people so prophets lie someone
took it as an even though it was a joke. He took it as an opportunity to, to praise Him and to speak about his, his his character. So anyway, I read all the alarm. He says, I went to the marketplace and I'm selling my dinner and the only thing I own is my shield. And I'm selling my dinner. He says, so if mom on the lower end, who saw me in the marketplace for sale on my shield that I'm selling my data, or if man is about to be his brother in law, right, or if man is married to that, okay, and then on cusum So he says, model the law and who came to me and said, How much are you selling it for? How much would you pay for it? Now he told the profit sighs I was only worth four did hums.
There's Manuel de la Andrew said, I'll give you 400 for it. He's trying to make things a little easier for him. All right. So I need all the law knows that. Sure. This is great, right? This man's trying to be charitable. But hey, you like it? You value it Earth man is a rich man with the law. I know. He's the opposite of it in terms of his financial circumstances, I'll give you 400 for it. So he gave him 400. And I needed the law on reset. So I gave him the data. And then after he gave me the 400 denims, he handed the shield to me. He said this is my wedding gift to you.
So he got his 400 that hums from the marketplace and he kept the shields. So he said I went back to the profits on the lahardee who was on them. And I told him what happened. So he said the prophets lie Selim daddy earthman is one of the many occasions where the prophets lie some major aphorism. And he said Rahim, Allah whoever Amro may Allah be pleased with about Umrah referring to him. And he said he's the most generous of sun and loss, praising again the generosity of very phenomenal deal. This was Earth man, big heart, always the first right to spend and to win the Prophet when he knows even that the prophets lie some would love to see that charity. This is phenomenal the alarm that he
uses as well makes it easy for the allow to handle. And then comes the wedding preparation. Ideal the law on Who said I sold some other things, just whatever I could find. Completely emptied out my house. He said I had 480 homes. Okay. And so the prophets lie, some said, so what's the Mau going to be at 480. Durham's, I want you to take a moment and think about this, the mouth of the queen of gender, leader of the women in Paradise is 480 homes. Some people have abused this concept so much turning into a price of value. It's supposed to be a gift to symbolize a union. It's supposed to set the tone for a son for excellence, the gift giving of the husband to the wife and some people have
abused this concept so much. turned it into like an insurance plan or something like that. Right? Like 20,000. That's like, where did this 20,000 30,000 40,000 Where does this come from? Right? It's not the spirit of it is there and other prophets lie, some did not limit. You didn't top it off. But the prophets lie. Some said the best of my heart and the best of weddings are the ones that are the least expensive. Right? There is hate. There's Baraka there's something beautiful and blessing about a simple wedding, a simple Maha. Don't overdo it. You know that money that you're spending to, to
show show every show everyone who you are and what you are, that money will die the same night it will go to waste and it might even be sinful might even be a slough it might even mean extravagance and then you could use that money for something so much better. Right? So the Prophet slicin him in his own example. And that's why in the Hanafi school, many of them enough became their history, right? The Mahabharata Mia right, the Maha Fatima as the mother at the time of marriage, right, just the gift, the dowry at the time of marriage. So this is the the leader of the women in paradise. So either Tunis and agenda 480 silver coins, a few columns, a little the law and who asked the Prophet
size, and he said, What should I do with it, you know, so it's not just that the profit slice of them said, it's through saying if it
was through thin film attack, he said use two thirds of it to buy her some perfume, and use one third of it to buy some furniture. Take the 480 and get get it ready, go get her some perfume, go get her some furniture for a house. So at the low end home, this is where the community starts to come together. Now, he said so I had no idea how to buy perfume. never bought perfume in his life, said so below the law and who went with him and below the low tide I know helped him buy some perfume for his wife fancy model the law on her. And he said and I gave the rest on selama or the lohana bringing in now some heavyweights right some senior Sahaba This is the excitement of the
community. And I asked him selama to use whatever was left to buy what was necessary for the bride for her preparation. The prophets lie some of them then gave some money to a bucket and he sets a bucket to buy some clothes for ID and fathima. And then he sends a model the asset of the Allahu taala and when he said make the
Preparations for the wedding. So when they went out to the marketplace now you got double Beckett and Armada, vinyasa, going out shopping for their wedding, a model the low tide and who said I would show everything, double check it for approval, he would approve it, we buy it. We came back to the profit slice of them brought the stuff the profit slice of them made for Baraka for blessing in the few items that we bought. Maslow called the law and who says that our Isha and onsala
were given the responsibility to prepare the home of Ali and Fatima. So look at how simple these people are.
On Sunday, Salama, took some mud from the valley, they prepared it, they cleaned it, and they turned it into they said, We made it into cushions with our hands, put a simple cloth over it and we made it into cushions from our hand. They took some dates and some water, they placed a wood in the you know, I hope that the night Allah one day we can actually create these simulations to show people this I know there have been some attempts, but it just be beautiful to see it. They put a wood in the corner where they could hang their clothes and they could they also had some hooks on the woods so that you could hang some of your water vessels. And then the story of this this marriage becomes
Kitab, Nika Babel walima. In the center of
Babel. walima actually starts off with this. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself made the bed. How do you make a bed, right? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with his own hands. He took palm leaves, he took wood, he stuffed the wood with some of the palm leaves. And then the profits why some took a velvet cover, took a pillow that was made of animal animal skin, filled it with some of the palm fiber as well. That was their cushioning on the inside. And the profit slice alum left for them apart. And he left for them a waterskin. And he left for them. A couple of stones that they could grind grain with. This is the making of the house of alley and Fatima little de la
and who narrates he said we had one bed in our house. And he said it was everything for us. He says it was our bed at night. It was our couch during the daytime. And he said and we would feed our animals off of it. And he said we never had a servant's we never had a Giardia in our home, which is a story that we'll talk about next week. And as we as we continue, so this is Subhanallah the simplicity of that coming together. A smart body allowed Taylor and her said the best wedding I ever saw the best walima ever saw was the Redeemer of Ali and Fatima all they had was some barley, some dates and some haze cases they taste some haze, which they eat in the desert. And that was the
wedding meal of Allie and Fatima and it was the happiest day that they remembered in Medina somehow seeing that wedding, the joy of the profit slice in them the simplicity of this wedding, that's setting the tone for everybody to how they approach the celebrations and how they approach their weddings. Finally, the Prophet slicin um sent us all the law and we called Rebecca ometer is man wilbarger Ensenada and some of the unsought they bore witness to the wedding. And the profits license says she to come and knee pads the watch to Fatima minarelli and Alberto Mia Thomas mizpah min phila, the prophets lie Some said I bear witness Are you bear witness in front of you that I've
married my daughter Fatima to ID for 400 small silver coins for the 400 did hums. Last narration I'll leave you with with tonight inshallah. And then next week, we'll pick up and shell and talk about this blessing family life. The first night, these two people who couldn't even talk
to express their desire to marry one another. That was a hard wedding day.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told I need all the law on home at the walima. He said go home. And he said before you're before you're intimate with each other, he said, wait for me, and I'll come to you. Alright, so I need all the allowance data and Who said that?
I came home and he said, a man brought Fatima to the house. So the Prophet sly Samson led to the new house, the bed. Fatima or the Allahu taala and her went home with a man of the love on her. And he said we sat there and we just waited for the prophets lie Selim. super nervous. I mean, anxious. What's he gonna say? This is it's hard right to be the daughter of the Father, the Son in law of the prophets lies on tap as your father in law. He said so the Prophet sallallahu wasallam walked in.
And we were both sitting there and they were both shaking, nervous, anxious. The prophets lie Selim said don't stand up. He told them to stay there. He took the water in their house, the water jug. This is so beautiful. So Pamela
He made we'll do it with the water
then he made we'll go into the jug so he told the idea of the law on how to come a little the law on who came the profit slice and poured the water on him and made your app for him.
Then he sent it to the laundry sit down he told faulty model the lower to come faulty model the low and how was shivering
from her higher when the Prophet slicin called her so the prophets lie some comforted her he said to her Do not worry he said I've married you to the most beloved person in my family. I'm marrying you to someone's Don't worry you're okay. I'm marrying you to someone special I'm marrying you to it it'll be allow I know. And the prophets lie some made will do and he poured water on thought the model the law and how he embraced her and listen to this beautiful drought and we'll end with this inshallah. What a father Subhanallah he said, Allah baddeck FEMA, Allah bless them, FEMA, Rebecca de Hema, Allah bless them, what in females what is between them, and upon them, bless them and what is
between them, and bless them and what is upon them. What baddeck fie shibli Hema and bless them in their offspring.
So the prophets I seldom did his will do, he wiped the water over poured the water on her made that dirt for her and it and then the prophets lie Selim walked out. And that was the way that this blessed union came together of Allie and Fatima, the household of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam elevate in sha Allah to Allah. Next week, we'll pick up and we will continue about what came out of that household and the way that these two would live their lives We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, to make beloved to us the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his family and his companions and to allow us to be like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his family and his
companions to allow us to not just love them, but to allow us to also manifest those beautiful noble qualities that we speak of, and we ask Allah to join us with them all along. I mean,
