Ali and Fatima_ From Love to the Pain of Death
Many came to the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, asking whom he loved the most, including Ali (ra) and Fatima (ra). He had the most eloquent answer, while maintaining his character of honesty. Even though Fatima was very dear to him and his heart was very attached to her, he didn’t want to answer in a way that would hurt Ali, whom he loved as his own son. He looked at Ali and said, ‘She is more beloved to me than you, but you are more precious to me than her’, making them both very happy.” Tune in to episode 8 of The Firsts as Sh. Omar Suleiman continues to talk about the love between Ali and Fatima and the love they had with Prophet Muhammad ﷺ to the pain that was felt after the passing of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and the passing of Fatima (ra).
Tonight in sha Allah tala, this one is going to go through a few different emotions. Because we'll go through the lives of Ali and Fatima may Allah be pleased with them, the humanity of both of them, the marital struggles that they had some of the difficulties while still seeing the way the Prophet slice alum comforted them and cared for them. And then ultimately the death of the Prophet slice on them and then the death of faulty mount may Allah be pleased with her, and the very human emotion that came out of that. Starting off though
there was this frequent, this frequent pursuit of the Prophet peace be upon him his love, and everyone wanted to know if the prophet SAW them love them the most, right? This is a very common trend that you find in the Hadith where people come to the Prophet slice on and say, who do you love the most? And can you imagine Ali and Fatima asking the Prophet slicin? Um, which of us to? Do you love more? Right, so we last week, we talked about a bass and Ali and Osama mosaic coming to the Prophet slice, I'm saying, Who do you love the most? And he says, Fatima. But now it's Allie and Fatima asking the prophets lie. Some By the way, who do you love more? What do you think the answer
of the prophets lie some less?
Both? You know, we struggle like when you're taught, it's not like when you're talking to your kids, and I love you and I love you. The prophets lie. Selim had the most eloquent answer. First of all, the profit zone can't lie. All right? He His heart is attached to faulty Ma, he loves faulty math, and faulty was very special to him. But at the same time, he doesn't want to answer that question. In a way that would hurt it, who he also raised like his own son, right? And he loved the idea of the low animal like his own son, he's a son, he's his cousin. He's his brother and Medina, he's so much to him. So they asked the Prophet salallahu Islam which of us to is more beloved to you? So he
looked at it and he said, Here I have boo, Ilya mink. What Auntie Zhu Alia minha. So beautiful answer. He said, Look, first of all, he had boo la amok, she is more beloved to me than you. But what Auntie zu la minha you are more precious to me than her.
So it gave them an answer that they could both take some pride in right? You have more Raisa with me, she has more hope with me, you are more precious to me. And of course, there are certain connotations to that what he means by that, and you are more beloved to me, oh, Fatima, because the prophets lysozyme truly loved her that much. Now, the first problem that arises in this marriage is not that they had an argument, it's not that they the poverty got to them. It's the distance from the Prophet sallallahu. It was some of them. Once they got married, realized they were they were poor. They were distant from the messengers, Allah Hardy was on their home was far away and they
felt a distance from him Fatima grew up as the daughter and then we had the mother of her father of the prophets lie Selim, a little the low tide and who also felt the distance from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and if you look at an old map of Medina, you'll find that the Herat the apartments of the prophets lysozyme, if you will, the small homes of the prophets lie Selim, where where you would see his grave now so his where his grave is is actually the room of who that's that's the apartment of it showed the law and that's where the home of the Prophet sly seminar he shall the law was, and then you you have these small homes that run to the left side of the masjid.
Right and they run two by two taking up that area. And the house was far away from the profits license house now all of the homes of the profits license I'm actually belonged, or were built on the land of one man. And his name was and his name doesn't come up. I'm not even gonna bother asking if someone knows that, Mashallah. But it's a very hard name to find his name is Howdy.
Howdy, Norman. He's not that well known from the companions, but he owned a huge piece of land next to the area of the masjid. So whenever the prophets like Selim, would get married, he'd give him a new extension of the land so that the prophets lysozyme could have a home there. So when Ali and Fatima got married, the Prophet slicin was too embarrassed to ask for more land so that he could have a home for fall tema an alley close to him. So how do you saw in the profits license, I'm one day some sort of emotion, some longing so he said to him, Do you miss your daughter Fatima?
And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said yes. And he knew what he was indicating he said, but I was too embarrassed to ask you, because you've already given us so much. So So holla This is the humility of the prophets lie Selim. He could snap his finger and everyone
will throw everything at him right? But he doesn't want to take advantage of the kindness of howdy there. So he said I didn't want to ask you for more. And howdy facade By Allah, the land that I give to you is more beloved to me than the land that I keep with me. I love giving you land, you could take all the property that you want. It's okay. So he told the Prophet slicin Why don't you take this piece of land? Which is right across from your house with Anisha Okay, so why don't you take that piece of land right across from your house without a shadow of the 11 Hmm. So the prophets I saw them smiled and he made do out for him. He prayed for him, that alone would give him a palace in
Paradise, so Fatima's home and alleys home was then built adjacent to the house of the prophets live seminar, he shoveled the alarm. And in fact, the only window that you have in those small, if you look at the the the models of how those homes were built, it was only one window, the window of each and the window fathima were facing each other. Right. So it's very close to the house of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So they moved close to him. But then you had the problem of poverty.
As I mentioned, in the story of alley, alley, you know, the low man who was always poor, always in poverty, right. His whole life is defined by intense poverty. And the prophets lie Selim himself lived in great poverty. So it's not like the prophets lie, some made it and then left his daughter in poverty know the profit slice on himself was in deep poverty, until until the day of his death, right, the profit slice, I'm never moved into a palace. He never ate more than a meal a day. And it was usually just some dates and water profits, I was in poverty. So Ali and Fatima reached the point of extreme poverty. And a little the law firm who developed back pain and faulty model the law on
her developed blisters in her hands, because of the amount of work that they had to do just to stay afloat, and she was exhausted. And so I deal with the law and has said to Fatima, well, the 11 Why don't you ask the prophets lie Selim, if he could provide a harder a servant, a maid someone to help out in the home and follow the law and has said that I'm too embarrassed to ask him. I need all the 11 who said, Why don't you just go and just inquire, just see if the prophets lie Selim met, you know, the province I'm had high emotional intelligence, he could tell what his daughter would want or you know, and he would be able to read it and the Prophet sly son would likely as we know, his
character would likely go ahead and say, Yes, fine. You know, here you go. And so Fatima went to the house of the prophets, I saw them after salted feathered after the federal prayer The next day, and found that Isha, may Allah be pleased with her and inquired about the prophets lie Selim. And I saw the Allah Han who said that the prophets like some had not come home yet. So he was still in the masjid, doing remembrance, he was praying, he was remembering Allah He was supplicating as he would do for a long time after the morning prayer after budget, up until the time of sunrise. So she went home now when the Prophet sly seldom came home.
He told the prophets lie some that Fatima came looking for you today. prophets lie some immediately went to the house. And he knocked the door and added all the allow on who said men who is it? So the profit slice on him said that it's it's me. I need all the 11 who said yes, a lot and 12 that he said O Messenger of Allah. Wait, they wanted to get the house ready. It was nighttime. Okay, and they wanted to get the house ready and, you know, be a little bit more presentable. Right when the Messenger of God comes to the home. The prophets lie Selim said, Don't worry, either howdy Kumar. He said, just stay as you are, stay seated as you are. Now, if you remember last week, the house of
Annie and Fatima had one bed, it was also their couch. It was also where they fed their animals from. So they literally sat up on the bed and the prophets license said don't get up. Just stay right there. And it was a cold night. Okay. So the profits, so they were kind of wrapped in a blanket, the Prophet slicin and went inside. And he sat between them.
And he looked at Fatima. And he said, Yeah, Fatima Fatima. She said Naranjo sutala Yes, a messenger of God. He said to Neil Young, did you come looking for me today? So she said, No, I'm yeah, Abby. Yes. So my father he said, Mother to read any of Fatima? What is it that you're asking for Fatima? What? What caused you to enquire? So she said to the Messenger of Allah, so I saw them that I heard that maybe you had a servant or maid or someone that could help me. Maybe there was someone that could help me because it's become difficult. In the home the prophets I send them said, Men baraki, who told you that there might be some servants or there might be a maid or someone to be able to
help you hajima to be able to help you. She didn't want to throw it under the bus because it was the one that told her that
Think that he might, he might be able to provide a servant or a maid or hire them to help you. So she just said someone told me. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Yeah, Fatima FLR or Akiko Ma Ma hydro lacuna. manhatten
shell like that, oh, Fatima, shall I not give you something that is greater that is more beneficial than a servant or made to assist you? So they both said, of course. Now the thinking was that maybe he's gonna give you know he's gonna he's gonna find a way to have multiple maids or multiple servants to help them out that the prophet SAW some is about to make the situation really good for them. Right? The Prophet sallallahu wasallam instead said, when you go to sleep, say Subhana Allah 33 times, which is to glorify God, so say Subhana Allah 33 times, say Alhamdulillah 33 times meaning praise Allah 33 times and say Allahu Akbar 34 times, okay, that God is the greatest 34 times, so
glorify Him 33 times praise him 33 times and declare his greatness 34 times which would make 100 they said, No Friday on a soul level, do that yellow Scylla and then they said, will harden and also there's their Mater's their servant, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, and this is powerful, because it shows you the ethics and the integrity of the Prophet slicin. And he said, I can't give you a harden. I can't provide a servant for you, and leave the people of suffer. Which were the homeless people that slept in the masjid. Okay, so the masjid had homeless people, those are the people that slept in the back of the messes. He said, I can't leave them and the orphans from the
Battle of bed that empty handed. Okay, so there were orphans from the battle profits items that I can't give them, I can't I can't help you and then leave them in their way. But the profit slice and them said if you say these words every night before you sleep, Allah will provide for you in ways that are far greater than anything that you're asking for. A little the allowance add on who said that I never missed. There was not a single night, a single night that I did not say those words after that. So Pamela 33 times that 133 times a quarter 34 times. And he said I swear by Allah that we were increased in strength and sustenance. And we never felt like we needed to hide them or Nate
needed a maid or a servant after that, that Allah had enriched us in this situation or gave us the strength so that we didn't need anything after that. Despite their poverty, they were a generous family. Of course, Fatima is like her father, I need all the electron who is like the prophets, my son who raised him. And so they used to give their whatever came into their home would often leave before they could taste anything of it. And so according to some of the narrations of Pepsi, for example, the verse and certain insan where you'll put a monitor Allah Allah helped me he Myskina Jolla team and what a seal in the monitor mo community Landry domain comm design, what are Shakira
the verses and sorbitol in Psalm chapter 76, verse eight and nine, that and they give in food or they give their food in spite of love for it to the needy to the orphans and to the captives. And they say we only feed you for the pleasure of Allah, we wish not from you reward or any form of gratitude. Many of the scholars said that this was on a night that it and faulty model the Alon had, and had despite their starving, starving despite their their hardship, that they only had a loaf of bread and some water in their home and they gave it away to a poor family that came to ask and so Allah subhanaw taala related that for them,
and there are different proofs of this if you know Josie Rahim Allah mentioned some of the proofs for this amount of shaeffer I used to refer to Addy rhodiola han han some of his poetry men en zelophehad lotta man unselfie he has the one who sort of insaan was revealed for that allow revealed that praise of people that give despite their own hardship, to the orphan to the to the needy, and to the to the captive. There are also some narrations where you have disagreements, some narrations where the profit slice on goes to the home finds laughter there are different narrations and each one of them gives you a different dimension of this household. And some lessons for us, one of them,
the profit slice that I'm used to go to their home and wake them up for pm. Live being a neighbor of the profit slice of them comes with some commitment to right. So this father would leave his home the prophet SAW someone leave his home at night and knock on the door to remind them to get up and to pray in the middle of the night as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would get up and invoke his Lord in the middle of the night. So one night the prophets lie some went there. And he tried to wake our little the 11 who up and it did not wake up. So the prophets lie some of them told it the next day said Why didn't you wake up when I tried to wake you up for kiama lead? He said yeah, so lucky.
If Allah wanted to bring our souls back he would have
all right if I wanted to bring our souls back he would have so the prophets lie Selim hit his own he walked away and he said, look at it in such a crochet engender, that human beings are always arguments
that you know even it it'll be Allahu Tada. And who would would say that the prophets lie some cephalic canon in some accuracy in Jeddah, Allah, human beings are always argumentative. There's also a story of ID and Fatima getting into a disagreement. This happens in the household of even the prophets lie Selim, right a husband and a wife getting into a disagreement. And you've got to have a high level of emotional intelligence to know how to defuse it to know what's going on. The prophets lie. Some of them said that when I used to get into when I showed her the law on her, he wants to lie says, I know when you're upset with me, she said, how he said, because when you're upset with
me, you swear by the Lord of Abraham, and when you're pleased with me, you swear by the Lord of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. So I can tell I can tell from your sentiments, I can tell from your statements, the way that you speak, when you're upset with me. So Adi Infantino in one night the prophets, lysozyme, went to the house of God and Fatima, and he found Fatima there alone, and she was upset. So the Prophet slicin him said,
Where is your cousin? And say, where's your husband? Where's your cousin? Right? He could tell that there was some, probably some friction, he read the situation, right? So the lahardee was Allah. So she said, he also law we got into a fight, an ideal the law and who went to the messages asleep in the message. Now, this message is not open, for marital disagreements for you to come sleep in the message. By the way, I'm just going to put that out there. The messages of the prophets lifetime, you could go there any time of the night.
But there wasn't carpet, there wasn't a sea, it was dirt. So the prophets lie, some walked into the masjid. And he saw I need all the love and who's sleeping in the corner, and his top garment had come off. And I need all the loved one who was had dirt all on his back sand on his back. And he was sleeping. So the prophets lie. Some went up to him. He didn't wake him up and you know, threaten him. He didn't wake him up. And you know, the prophets lie. Selim did not play Angry father here. Right? He could have I mean, he loves Fatima. And this is a part of justice, right? That you have to have a sense of justice, in laws in particular, this is where father in law and mother in law can be
very unhelpful when it's my daughter, my son, instead of the best interest of trying to see you know, trying to make the marriage the best possible, right? So this is the prophets license version of inlaw interference. He goes up to the enemy starts knocking the dirt off of his back, he sits him up and he puts the, he puts the his shirt back on him and he says, pull me out about to rob sit up, oh, father of dirt, instead of doubleton to rob, and steal the lawn, who started laughing and the Prophet slicin was joking with him, right? So the prophet SAW some would joke with it and call them up to rob. And that was his favorite nickname. Right? And that's actually where the story
originates. From that the prophets lie, some is knocking the dirt off of his back, cleaning them up. He says, Call Mia Abba to rob, sit up with Rob and he says, Go back to your wife. Go back home. Right. So this is this was the way the prophets lie Selim
interfered if you will, in the life of Allie and Fatima, to make things better, okay, to defuse the situation. There's also a situation that arises after Tameka after the conquest of Mecca. Now, back in those days, polygamy was primarily to establish links between tribes. Right so it was this person this noble man marry someone from this tribe and that brings the two tribes together, and especially is done after war, right to bring two tribes together like the case of venomous dollop enjoy it and others that you find in the seals. This was the Arab custom right where a person would be asked to marry a noble man from one tribe is asked to marry a woman from another tribe and that brings
together two tribes and solidifies their relationships. So after the after photo Mecca,
the tribe of Abuja Hall, which was been, which was the home of zoom
benrahma Zubin, Banu Hashim were close. Right? So this was the profits license tribe and that powerful tribe. And they had a lot of heat before Islam, right. And I mean, when Islam happens, because the Buddha had tortured the Prophet slice on he was the Pharaoh of this nation. And so they proposed to it. They said, Why doesn't it marry? And this was a joint effort, if you will, from some of the elders of the tribes, right? They said, Why does an alley well they allow an humeri Fatima bint Abuja, Abuja had a daughter named Fatima.
That would bring the two tribes together. Now on faulty model the law on he even heard that that was suggested it hurt her humanity. Right. It's her humaneness. And it hurt the prophets lie Selim that she had caught wind that that suggestion was put out there, and it hurt and then hurt him that she was hurt. So the prophets lie some of them when he heard he said, Listen, I'm not going to make hard on what Allah made. helot he said, but in them are faulty not to belong to in many the name of the he said faulty was a part of me. What hurts her hurts me. What hurts her hurts me. And he said, it's not be fitting that a person would be married to the daughter of the Prophet of Allah and the enemy
of Allah at the same time, the Pharaoh of the Ummah, and the Prophet of Allah at the same time. So the prophet SAW some stepped in he expressed the humanity of it, the emotion of it, and there's some things that the scholars mentioned. They said, Imagine, Fatima de la Varna saw Abuja torture her father, right saw Abuja had torture the profits last time she was the one that would clean his wounds from Abuja hadn't even heard about him. Allah said that this incident occurred after the conquest of Mecca at that time, none of the prophets lie sons daughters were still alive except for her. she'd lost her mother, she lost her sisters. And so anything that would exasperate her grief
and jealousy was something that was not looked upon. And that just like her mother, who had perfect faith for the job of the law, and it was not befitting that anyone else would be married to a needle, the low tide and most of the profits lightsome stepped in, right, and the profits license expressed that pain now, this was again, the custom of the time but it shows you right that things can hurt people at those times that there was a human sentiment to that and the profit slice on acknowledge that pain, that faulty metal DLL and have felt, but he wasn't unjust profits, I some did not come in and say how long he said, Listen, you the name of a she's me, and I am hurt, it hurts
her what hurts what hurts her hurts me. And that's enough, right? I need all the law and we did not pursue it or anything like that, but just the hint of that hurt hurt. And there was no question of the love of that relationship. And I want to make that very clear. There was absolutely no question of the closeness of Ali and Fatima may Allah be pleased with them both. In fact, you start to find now you dig into their relationship, the depth of that love, right and that's something that also has to be told that there was a deep love between both of them that formulated over the next 10 years. There's actually a little the law on who was a poet and I'm gonna you know, this this lesson
is going to end with a very painful poem, but this one's not ideal of the law and we used to offer love poetry for fall to model the lawn right and so we all need to be more poetic
and it'll be allowed on who once saw a faulty model the allow using what was known as the sea walk, which is the toothbrush now the sea work comes from what tree and ask the all the bedrooms here from the Iraq tree so see work is now it's on Amazon for like 30 bucks. It's a Moroccan toothbrush. It's just from the Iraq tree you could go to you could go to Mecca, Medina and just grab a whole bunch of them right? And they talk about all the Amazing Health Benefits of the Moroccan toothbrush. It just sounds more exotic to say the Moroccan toothbrush. It's a see what it's from the rocketry and I need all the allow on hold used to author poetry for fonti model they allow enhance so this was one of
this was a very powerful one because it shows you his eloquence. A little they allow on holesaw fathima using AC wack, and he said to the seawalk he said how Lita udon Araki be 30 1am a 50 year old Araki araca no quantum in a little Peter D. Patel Touka marthas amenia c wacko c wacka so powerful Arab I mean, by the way for him that I would have to like spent I could never come up with that. I'm not even gonna say I would have to it's impossible to take a lifetime to come up with something that eloquent but he played with the words to express his his his love for faulty model the allow. He says huddly to the Araki be 30 He's like, wait a minute, you know, it's not just the
jealousy of faulty morality, he said huddly to Odin. Araki. beatifully ha Oh, stick of the Iraq tree. How dare you?
How dare you? You know, and then he says Emma 50 Oh, the Araki aloka Weren't you afraid? Oh stick of the Iraq that araca that I would see you know, quantum and a little kitale Patel Touka he said if you were a person to be killed, I would fight you I would kill you. Math as a mini yasi wacka wacka no one has escaped me. Oh si wack si wacka which means other than you. faulty model the allowance. This made her mean that she she she was the one that actually felt extremely treasured and touched by it. This wasn't like ideal of the law. I know being crazy and going into a rage in a fit. This was his
His way of expressing his love and His Leanna for her in their tradition and using the eloquence that that he had. So what does it look like for the next 10 years? Obviously, Medina as a whole, whatever the prophets lie some goes through, they go through as well. So it wasn't just the poverty. The Battle of a faulty model, the low unhealth was pregnant with her first child. What was his name? It hasn't got a lot of wind. So Fatima was pregnant with hesson. During the Battle of her than she was at the Battle serving the injured and faulty model the 11 he actually took care of the profit slice on him after his injuries and overhead. We know that the Messenger of Allah Sai son was
injured severely in the Battle of hood.
That year, it was the normal bond of the third year after his law that it has some of the allowed Thailand who was born. If you remember the hotpot when his son was born, what did it name him? I talked about it Friday.
How to Play names in war. And the prophets lie Selim came back and he said no, no, his name is not how his name is not going to be war. His name is going to be Hassan. Hassan means goodness, it means excellence. It means it means a source of good. Right? has some of the love on who was special in many ways. For one, no one looked more like the prophets lie. Some of them have some of the lavon and there is a narration where I will bet could have picked up and Hassan he was throwing him in the air as a kid and he said to him, you look more like your grandfather than your father. Right. So his Shebaa his his resemblance was of the Prophet slice and I'm even more than ideal, the Allahu tada I
know he looked more like his grandfather than his father, the prophet slice. I'm used to love him. He used to have some of the Alon who would. And I want you to remember this next time you see it, it hasn't would always jump on the profits back Institute. So on the profit side, some would make such de prostrate and have some of the Alon who would come and attack him jump on his back. Now kids, that's not an excuse to take too long jumping on his back, but he would sit on he would get on his back and the prophets lie some would prolong his suit when Hassan was on his back. So he'd stay in prostration while Hudson was on his back. And when the Prophet slicin I'm used to see him he used to
hold them and put them in his lap and he used to make draft for him. He used to pray for him. Often, Al Hussein of the law was born the very next year, the fourth year after heads up. What did he name him? He named them how to begin he named him war prophets I send them said no, his name is Hussein, which means little hesson. Okay, so another source of goodness. So the prophets lies I'm took naming very seriously and it has sailed the allow on hold also just becomes the the source of great joy for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and this family of Allie and Fatima becomes for that are extremely precious to the prophets lie Selim. And there is a narration they said that it has some of
the Allahu anhu resembled the profits licensed most from his upper body meaning his face and his and his arms and things of that sort. They said the same of the law on who had the had the same legs as the prophets lie Selim. So he resembled the profit slice I'm in his own way. And both of them were always on the profit slice on them. He used to be giving the ultimate he'd be giving the sermon and the prophets lie. Some would see a hustler Hussein, he paused the hook, but he'd get down from the pulpit, grab both of them give the hope of sitting down, but that hasn't been in his lap. Right. So think about that imagery. Okay. One of my favorite heartbeats in this regard to show their
And there's so many ideas, by the way, about their closeness. I saw the law on her. She said that one day the Prophet slicin went out wearing a cloak, a striped cloak, which was, which was, which was a wide Juba, so it's like a very wide black cloak that the Prophet slicin was wearing. So it has some of the law and who ran up to the prophets license.
So the prophets lie, son, he sat down and he wrapped a lesson in the cloak. Then Hussein ran to the prophets license, so the prophets lie, some open his cloak. And he put both of them in the Juba playing with them. And then Fatima, his daughter says, the mom came and the prophets lie Selim extended his right and put Fatima under the cloak as well. And then it came and the prophets lie, some extended his cloak and he put all four of them under his job. Right, and just to show love, right just in the moment just to show love. And while he was sitting with them, the prophets lie Selim recited in them, you read the law, who the youth he bancomer it's a little bait, when you tell
him to come talk to this in Sahih Muslim, that Allah only desires to remove from you any type of impurity or people of the household and purify you through through that which is purifying and he may do that for them. But that's the image right the profit slice I'm holding
All four of them tight after they were born. faulty model de la Honda used to the profit slice I'm used to come to the house and he used to call out he used to say to Fatima, Rudy abhinaya call my two sons. For me I want to see my two sons. I want to see it hasn't Hussein. So faulty model de la unhashed, he would dress them up cutely. And they'd run to the Prophet, slice them and he would squeeze them and the Prophet slice them would smell their hair. Right? Like it's, that's love, right to just show that love that he had for them. And, and he would often pray for them, may last time be pleased with them both. So that's a that's just a very special relationship that the prophet SAW
some you now see another element, which is the Prophet as a grandfather. Right and what he was as a grandfather to them. And then as Xena below the law of Allah and Xena was born. And the fifth of the hedger on consume was born in the sixth. I keep saying the hedger after his law, I'm sorry. This the fifth after his law, I mean, the fifth year in Medina and then Uncle therminal, the Allah Allah was born the sixth year after his law. And then they had another son who died at birth.
And his name was and the prophets lie some named Tim and mahasin. So is a smaller version of Hassan Hassan al mahasin. Who actually died at the time of birth. And so their their
their family rounded out in these four children, and if not, basl, the Allahu Allah and who he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a humble Lucha Lima you have lucuma near me, he is the Prophet sly Some said love Allah love God for what he nourishes you have his blessings. So love Allah for the blessings that he provides to you. Well ahead boonie beheld Billa and love me due to the love of Allah. And then the Prophet sighs Sam says what a headboard Allah Beatty Lee hubby and love the people of my household love my family, for your love for me. Okay are so because of my love for them. So love a lot because of what he gives you. You love me because and they all love the
profit slice them you love me because of the love of Allah. And then you love these children. This family of mine because of my love for them as well. Your love for me. The prophets lie Selim was once carrying and Hassan will be allowed and was also on Sahih Muslim and he said Allahumma inni hibou Oh Allah know that I love him for HIPAA. So love him as well. We'll leave menu and love those who love Him. So this is the type of the type of supplication that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam would make for them. He said some of lahari summon another authentic hadith men have been hesitant when her Cena faqad Bethany woman, woman Avada Houma. avani, he said, So um, whoever loves these two
and has been with her saying loves me, and whoever hates them, or angers them, hates me. This was also a house of great laughter, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would often pass by their house, and he would hear their laughter and the prophets lie, some would enquire would inquire about their laughter and say, what is it that made you laugh so that he could live with them? Right, so this was, you know, Edie and Fatima had a very had a relationship where they used to joke a lot. And this is one of the sci fi it's actually one of the attributes that's mentioned of their marriage, and several of the books, and so on, who said that fathima law, the law, kept on teasing him and
saying that she's older than him.
And he was very young when he got married, right. So she would tease him and say, I'm older than you. And I do the law. And who would insist that no, he's older than her. Now, back then, by the way, there's actually some perspective to this back then, you know, and some of you could actually relate to this. A lot of people don't know their birthdays from where they came from. Right. Like, it wasn't really a thing, right? So back then it was very conceivable that you don't know the year you're born either this year, that year, somewhere around this month or that month, right? That's actually a thing. So Fatuma would mess with it all the allow anyone say I'm older than you, and a
little the Allahu anhu would laugh about it. And that's when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam saw them, and I read it aloud and who used to make funny poems for her as well, that would make her laugh. That would make her laugh frequently. So I needed the loan on one faulty man had a very loving relationship as well when it came to the laughter that came between those two. Now the prophets lie some has to maintain, as we said, a delicate relationship between or with both of them. And you realize that the prophets lie Selim also called it his brother, and a manual the level and ask the Prophet slicin and why she would, he would still call him his brother. And the prophets lie
Selim said because I chose him for me after the digital I chose him to be my brother.
After the 100 or so he maintained a relationship with ideal the law and who in that regard, and maintain that relationship with Fatima as his daughter. Now, there's something to be said about this that we talked about the story of it and the profit sighs I'm joking with each other right over the dates and the date seeds. I think two years ago.
There's something about the father presence here, the age gap between him and Ollie and the fact that he still treats it like an adult like a brother. He consults early on his most, you know, sensitive matters, talks to him about things loves him, shows him that type of relationship, he doesn't belittle it all the alongside on hold or get in the way of the marriage between audience Altima in any way whatsoever.
Now, just getting to sort of that love and kind of getting to the end of this.
That position of faulty model the Allahu anhu, that position of ideal the lavon, who was well known to everyone, but I want to specifically talk about fathima post, right we post the marriage of Fatima poster having Hassan Hussein Zayn have an uncle film, and I show the love on her. She narrates this that the prophets lie some had asked permission to enter in once. And the prophets lie some was with her. And I showed the 11 he was wearing a was wearing a wool dress the narration mentions that and so she came in and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told faulty model the Allahu taala and her that. Do you love what I love? And she said yes. So he said to Fatima, do you
not love what I love? She said of course he said he'd be happy. So he told faulty model the allowing her to love each other, the love and so that that's also that harmony that the Prophet slicin was able to strike in general where his favoritism, if you will, or the way that he he clearly favored certain people did not lead to him wronging people and he always tried to maintain as much of a cohesion as possible. Now, there are two narrations
that kind of go to that last moment of that special relationship between the prophets lie summon faulty model, the olana one of them is when the prophets lie Selim came home after a journey outside of Medina, and this was towards the end, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam did what he always did, he went to the masjid first and he prayed his to record and then he came to, he went to his home. And Fatima or the Allahu anhu. Again, the prophet SAW Some even after Fatima got married, he would visit her first before his own spouse. Right? He'd first go to Fatima. You got to check in with the with the daughter first right and then he moved on. So faulty model the allow on her welcomed him. She
did what she always did. She kissed his head. She kissed his hands gave him this place as the prophet SAW someone do when she walked in a room he kissed her forehead. Put her in his seat, right that special relationship and she started to cry. And the Prophet slicin um said Why are you crying? And she said to the Prophet slice, um, she said, your your pail, your clothes are shabby, and you're not eating. This is still a beehive. This is the mother of her father's so she's upset because she sees the deterioration of the prophets lie Selim, physically write that the prophets lie some would not eat he'd go out hungry many times. And he refused to ask you refuse to eat to his fill
sallallahu wasallam and she started to cry. And this was the same girl that wiped the camel guts off of his back and cried in Mecca. This was her upbringing her childhood was crying because of the stress of the Prophet slice Allah. So once again, the prophets lie some comforter and he says to her, yeah, Fatima, don't cry because Allah has sent your father with a mission, which he will cause to reach every single house on the face of this earth. Whether it be in the towns or the villages, or the tents in the deserts
Don't cry because this message that has consumed me and consumed us in these difficult moments. This message is going to reach every single household in the world. It's gonna spread. It's okay. It's gonna be worth it at the end of the day. So the Prophet sighs I'm just like he comforted fathima in Mecca and said laptab Keefe and de la nacion tabacky Don't cry a lot is going to support your father a lot is going to give victory to your father chose something special that faulty model d lavon. Understood. This is a girl This is a woman who perfects her faith. Right so her attachment to Islam is not just because her father's the prophets lie Selim. She has perfect imagine this is a woman of
prayer a woman of supplication a woman of devotion, a woman who has her own special relationship with Allah. So when the Prophet slicin him says that look
This is this is going somewhere that Allah is going to make this special and it's going to reach places and you shouldn't feel sad. It's okay. That was something that would come for a fancy model the law now. Now, the last moment though, it's something really to capture
how I saw the low Anna describes the dying of the Prophet slice of them. Right. And you know, no matter how many angles you talk about the death of the Prophet slice on from each one is very unique. And each one gives a different layer of what the death of the Prophet slicin meant to that community. And I saw the love on her. She describes the moment where the profits license fever, his pain, his sickness had reached such a point that the profit slice on him was in and out of consciousness. He was sweating. He was burning from his fever sallallahu wasallam. And the prophets lie some could not walk at that point.
And faulty model de la Hannah. She walked into the room.
Now imagine this the profit slice on every time Falcon would walk into the room, what does he do? He gets up, holds her hand, sits her in his place, kisses her honors her he can't do that. Sick. He can't move. Salalah honey.
So I saw the alarm on her. She says that the prophets lie Selim. He tried to rise up and he says Mater haben babe Nettie Welcome to my beautiful daughter and he quit and he smiled, sly, solemn. And she said that he showed more energy in that moment than he did in that entire period of his passing. Like he exerted himself more to greet her when she walked into the room than he had in the in the entire last days of his life. So the lie salon where he was dying, and he was struggling, right, and that's the show of strength and honor and love for his daughter. And then he told him about the law on how to come.
And he told her, he signaled to sit to his right side. And then he whispered something into her ear, and fondamental the law and he started to cry heavily. Right, she started to weep. And then the Prophet slice Allah said this, he shot a big he once again said come down. So she came, and he whispered something into her ear, and she laughed.
she embraced him. So that was the last time that they actually embraced. She left the room enjoy. And it was strange. I sort of the low Anna asked Fatima. What did he say to you? She said, I'm not telling you. It's between me and my father. This is us. It's a secret at that point, right? This is special. This was a moment that she just shared with her father, she wasn't ready to share it with anyone else at that time.
Right? And then later on optimal the Alon had told us he shall be allowed on he remembered what you asked remember what you asked me? And she said yes. So she shared with our Isha what the prophet sighs I'm told her for the very last time these two have been through so much together. Right there. This was had he does a piece of Khadija and the piece of the profit slice on them. bidding fair and the profit slice them is leaving this world. And Fatima has lost her mom lost her sister's lost everybody right? It's now it's the profit slice on them. And this is her her father but everything to her. And she said that the first time the prophets I saw them called me down my father told me
that I'm not going to live past this. This is it.
Right so I'm gonna die. And that was something that was so inconceivable to so many people even though it says in the comedians who will die and they will die as well. You're a human being you will. But the thought of the prophets lie some dying he was so big in their eyes. They couldn't imagine his death they just could not conceive of the possibility even though they knew it's in the Koran twice right after in Marta acquitted if he dies, or if he's killed, right I mean, it's in the Quran. But when when she when he told her that I'm not going to live past this faulty model the law and has started to weep immediately. Second time the Prophet Tyson says, Come back.
And he tells her, you will be the first one to die after me.
That's a strange thing to make someone laugh.
27 year old young mother. She's only 27 By the way, young woman and the prophets lie some tells her you're the first one that will die after me and join me. That's the part that makes her happy that I'm about to leave, and you're coming to you're not sick. Nothing's wrong with you. I'm not praying against you. But the prophet slice of them is speaking obviously, when I anticline in Hawaii doesn't speak from a place of vanity. or from a place of desire. The prophets lie some speaks on divine revelation. You're gonna die after me.
And that cost fathima to lie
That's how much she loved her father. And that's how much she wanted to be with her father sallallahu alayhi wasallam and when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam died Now how did they know that the prophet SAW some died?
This is a very human story at this point. He showed the low on her screen. The profits by some died in her lap when jabril came in. And the Prophet slicin lit up and he raised his hand to the sky and he said, a lot of people are in a battle of equal honor. I choose the companionship of the Most High those are the last words of the Prophet slice I'm I choose the compassion of the Most High and his hand fell out he saw the low on his screens and the first person to hear it was faulty because she was sitting in the house right next door.
And when faulty model the low Ana heard that this is what she responded with. She said Yeah.
And Robbie Hema at dinner. Yeah, about Elijah breeland. And your avatar, Jonathan fildo, Sima. Beautiful words. powerful words. said yeah, avatar. Oh, my dear father. how close you are now to your Lord man. Robbie, Hema, how close you are now to your Lord. Yeah. abeta Elijah Breeden and Oh my dear father to Gabriel to jabril we announce your death. Yeah. abeta genital Ferdowsi man, Oh my dear father genital for the dose is now your abode, the highest garden and Paradise is now your abode. Those were the words of Fatima de la Han was stunt. He didn't say a word for days. He could not speak after the death of the profits license people process differently, right? I laid on the
law and he was so eloquent, couldn't find a word to utter in the immediate aftermath of the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And so the Allahu taala. And
he said that when we buried the prophets lie Selim, as I was, as we finished burying him, Fawlty Moe, standing behind us when we bury the prophets.
And she asked
How could you? How did you bring yourselves to put dirt on my father's face?
This is a no this is human coming, you know, the humanity coming out the emotion coming out. But how could you put dirt on the face of the prophets license? How could you bury him? Like how did you come? How could you do that? How did you find the ability to do that? And and also the alongside and who says that I said to her, while La Jolla and Kelowna globala said that I swear by Allah, the only way we were able to do it was to deny our hearts which means we numbed ourselves, we had to, we had to be robotic, to be able to place the prophets lie some in the ground, and to put dirt on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and bury him in the ground. And also the Allahu anhu says, she
looked at me, she started crying, she turned away and she left, she could not perceive or come to terms with what was happening or the sadness of it. And she really did not have the desire to live after his death. So a lot harder to some I mean, it's very clear it's not just the profit slice I'm telling her and there are many things to talk about here. You know, you see people that love each other like sometimes elderly one person you know is elderly and dies and then quickly after the spouse dies sometimes you find that type of relationship that's very very different. Allah Han Allah knows best but faulty model de la after the prophet SAW some died immediately went sick immediately
became ill right It did not take but a few days for her to become ill as well. And you have to ask yourself why did she love her father so much? Did the profit slice I'm spoil her with wealth and riches and throw things at her uses position of power to privilege her? Or was it that intense love that the profit slice I'm sure
right that that that was something and that's a lesson for parents as well the profit as a father, the profit as a parent, that what you give to your child of love is so much more than anything else you can give to them. How much did the prophets lie some give her of himself despite being the Messenger of Allah by having all that he had on his plate that made her love him so much. So when did she die? Well the a lot of time on
it was the first Ramadan after the death of the Prophet so
imagine Medina first Ramadan after the death of the Prophet so
you know when you talk about anniversaries or things that come up or whatever it is, after the death of a person that bring back all the pain,
Ramadan, in the in Medina and the prophets lie some is alive, leading you in prayer. How I mean look at our message of the normal line. How amazing was Ramadan with the Prophet slice on the monks, the people? And this is the first time that they're going to have to go through Ramadan, and the Prophet slice them is dead. He's buried
Although the love of Thailand,
in the very first Ramadan, as that Ramadan came around, she was the third day of Ramadan, that she goes out to her courtyard. So meaning right outside the home,
she lays at the heavens smiling, she looks up at the skies, and she's smiling. Now that we are snapped into a maze, she called for a smart interface, may Allah be pleased with her. She told us map into a maze. She said, Listen, when I die,
I want to be buried at night. So that not too many people come and no one will see my finger.
And, you know, what she meant by that was that she wanted a very modest, very modest party.
Right. And some of the scholars said she was of course known for her heart, she was known for her modesty and she literally meant it has that I don't want my finger to be exposed. So bring a cloth. That is why that will cover me and let me be buried at night. So that very few people would attend so that it wouldn't cause it wouldn't have too many people around at that time and allow it to conceal me. So as Matt told Selma about the lava and home, Solomon was one of those that furnish the house of Altima, right and it may Allah be pleased with him. So I'm Solomon,
brought her cloth from habitat from Abyssinia from the migration to have the senior there was a very thick cloth, concealed her with it, and she was happy with it. She looked at that cloth. So this is good. And then she called for a lead all the time.
All right, so her last moments are actually with her family, the law of town. And she called for a little the law of Thailand. And they shared some moments of love. And she she actually told it to the Allahu anhu that I want to she actually told that he who she wants him to marry after she dies, to take care of the kids. So she told her I need all the law on who to marry. Oh mama, who was the daughter of her of her sister, Xena, so that she could be a caretaker for the kids. She said she's a she's a motherly woman, she's a loving woman. So when when I die, I want you to marry her mama, because she would take care of the kids she would take care of and heslin Hussein, Zane have an
uncle film. And that's just her thinking about her children. She embraces her family,
and Subhanallah she leaves this world, laying out looking at the heavens. And the angel coming to her and taking her with a note on her face with with a smile on her face with just complete peace, fulfilling what the prophets lie some had said, which is that she would be the first of the companions to die after the Prophet sly send them the very first person to leave this earth from the family of the Prophet sly someone from his close companions that would join the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. After his death,
I need all the 11 hole just lost the profit slice of them. And now we lost Baltimore.
And a little the loss of title assisted in the washing of her and he cried frequently at her washing and our little the Allahu taala and who had to have the grueling experience of doing what the prophet slicin did with Khadija which was to actually get in the grave and receive her body and to barrier and it was extremely difficult on our needle the Allahu taala on how to do so and it actually led the janazah of his wife Fatima are the Aloha Tana and this is going back to the profit slice on burying Khadija it feels very similar, right? I mean that that closeness, that tightness between these two, and a little the allowance add on who he actually said he said nothing exhausted
me more in my entire life than the death of my two beloved ones. Within that short period, I lost the two most important people to me in my life. Within that very short period, not evil, the Alon who said everything I've been through in life, battles, wars, he loves fitness, all of it. He said nothing consumed me and took more from me than the death of the Prophet Simon faulty model de la Anna, in that very small period of time.
And this is a this is that we you end on a sad note because but there's something to be to be said about this, that when you read the poem, that idea of the Alon who recited at the gravesite of Fatima, there's nothing happy about it.
There is nothing about it that is hopeful. It's just pain. It's raw pain. When you read what a needle the alarm was set at the graveside, of faulty model, the alarm habit that shows you that love and that humanity and that one of the prophets, I said that's the mercy of the heart. That is mercy. Right remember when his own son died? And the Prophet sly son was crying and they said, you know, how could you be crying?
Or MTL is that what he said? It's, it's, this is the compassion that Allah puts in our hearts for one another. And so the words of it when Fatima died, pure pain, and I mean unfiltered raw pain, there's nothing else that's given except for pain. It's a very strong palm. He had finished burying her he stood by her grave side, and he recited the following. He said nearly walk off to other watery musalman said What is wrong with me standing at the grave side, saying Salaam to the one who has passed corporal Habibi, philomela rajabi, the grave of my lover but she's not responding to my greeting. And he calls out and he says, a hobby will not akella Taro digiovanna, my lover, why are
you not responding to my Salaam? An a seat about the whole little Bobby, have you forgotten all of the intimate?
He said, having forgotten all of the intimate moments that were shared between the two of us.
And then he actually says in this poem, he starts to respond with what Fatima would be saying back to him. And he says, I'll have Abel, what caverly bujo become, my beloved one responded and said, How can I respond to you? Well, Anna, or hainault Jana didn't what to Robbie and I become a prisoner. I've become now consumed by stones and by dirt, and he cried all the time.
And he responded again, he's still speaking, he says Kela terraformer has any fantasy to come. The dirt has consumed my beauty and that is why I have moved on.
to dip to an early one a throbbing and I've been veiled from my family, and my beloved ones, the LA como, Minnesota tatata art many women come home.
And so he said, and so she responded, and she said, and so my Salaam back to you, and to them, meaning to those that I've left behind, those intimate moments have now passed.
These are painful words. They are raw expressions of death. There is nothing about them that is we'll meet again and Jenna nothing about them that I'm okay. It's pure pain. And that is actually an expression of that love that deep love that added all the law I know had for fall tomorrow the alarm. Now a little the love of Thailand who did not
go back on his faith. He didn't become, you know, resentful to Allah. He knows the way that this works. He knows the process of death and afterlife. But that doesn't mean that he didn't feel pain. And I think that's actually something that's very important. When we lose our loved ones, we're not expected to not feel pain. Okay, that's not what suburbia is suburb. is not patience is not to not feel pain and not feel love and not feel that distance when you lose your loved ones. Patience is to not say anything Nanakuli la mejor de la not to say anything except that which is pleasing to Allah, and to use that pain to do good for them. Right like the prophets lie some did with fidelity, allow
on her visiting her friends spending on her behalf, maintaining those relationships, that's what it is. And I think it's it's only be fitting that you go through that you just see it's, it's just love and pain. And it is actually about the law. I'm imagining a conversation between him and follow him at that point. And that's the deep love that he had for her while the law hotel and
of course, what we know what the profit slice and I mentioned, of the gathering of the souls of the believers, we have no doubt being that they're both from those promise that agenda that it hasn't seen or say either Shabaab and agenda, the masters of the youth of the people of Paradise, that they are gathered again, in the presence of the prophets lie Selim in Ottawa. Hello, my name is in the in the realm of the rights of souls.
We ask a lot together us with them. And to allow us to be like them. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to put that love and that mercy in our hearts, and to put that red law with a lot of pleasure with a loss decree in our hearts and to unite us with our families and to unite us with this blessed family and the highest level Jonathan for the dose Allahumma amin and again
This was a deep dive into that life, that family of the profit slice on them and I hope that inshallah tada it gives you a lot of perspective, a lot of perspective for how we carry ourselves. how, you know, Kobe Bryant died two days ago. And there's a lot of this, you know, a lot of people talking about death now, right? And this should give us some perspective. This should give us a lot of perspective, right? When people talk about death, what type of how do we want to go and who do we want to be with and to adopt, you are with the one that you love. So I pray that if a lot look at us and find us to be amongst those who deeply love the profits by sentiment, his family that that is a
sign that Allah would gather us with him and his family. His companions are warm, I mean,
