Abu Bakr – Part 3
There Will Never Be Another One
Prophet Muhammad ï·º was keen to remember and honor âthe firstsâ for their support, suffering, and sincerity. Abu Bakrâs (ra) honor surpassed everyoneâs, including that of Umar ibn al Khattab (ra).
He surpassed everyone by a distance that no one could ever catch up to. His status is sanctified as the first after the prophets. Prophet Muhammad ï·º said the sun has never risen or set on anyone, after the prophets, that is better than Abu Bakr, and that he will be the first to enter Paradise in his nation.
So now when
I was when asked me Are you going to shape our team?
I mean, whatever we want it to mean. But I want people to gain a lot more suddenly we're selling
silica Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam only he was lucky he was seldom to see him and kathira so I landed hamdulillah less than an hour before class, but we still made it. And tonight inshallah tada we're going to be completing our class on a pullback of a vehicle of the allotted time talking about him and the nature of his position, the nature of his standing now I want to make clear that I don't plan to make it a habit to do more than one class per individual. This was an exception. I lead all the time on the story of faulty metal the law on how we're exceptions, I plan to inshallah tada keep this one class per person. But I will bucket will the law I know has three main layers to
him that we wanted to break up or I wanted to break up into three different ways. When we first started with a bucket we talked about this man who would shield the prophets lie Selim, who believed in him when no one would, who immediately accepted him built a community around him, freed the oppressed slaves that had believed in the prophets lie Selim when no one else would, which were the original community of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and shielded the profit slice on with everything that he had. So we talked about Rebecca the law, and who and his accompanying the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the most difficult times when no one would, which is a very special
distinction and a very special first, last week, we talked about the special quality that he had, which was that he would never be undone in his pursuits or beaten in his pursuit to good when there was a good opportunity in front of Wilbekin or the law and who preceded everyone to it. So he was self motivated, self driven, to every single good. And on top of that, when there seem to be absolutely no opportunity for good or evil back at all the law on Whoa, turn something into an opportunity for good, he did the unthinkable. He drove himself to do extra good deeds that no one else wanted to do, and the good deeds that everybody else was doing, he was doing better. And that
was his special quality, right? That mountain wasn't even a Hema. He said that a while back, it had something shaped in Wakanda, vehicle V, there was something in the heart of abubaker that just exposed him to every good he had this, this intuition towards good anytime he saw a good opportunity, he ran to it, and he didn't wait for anyone else to do it and lead the way he led the way on every single Good. Now, the title for this halaqa this last class in the first about double bucket is there will be there will never be another bubble bucket. There will never be another one. And I want to talk about this idea of you know, the profit slice alum Sanctus sanctifying his status
as number one, when we talk about the first this idea that no one could ever overcome the status and the value of that and what we understand from that. Now, the first thing to think about from the origins of Islam or when Islam is starting number one, when the Prophet sly Salaam sent the first Hajj the first pilgrimage was made. After the prophets lie Selim had made peace with the people of Mecca, and Hajj was allowed. The prophets lie some appointed double Beckett Well, the law of Thailand was the Emir of heads as the leader of the Hajaj that wins so the profit slice I'm sent a delegation to hedge
a year before he himself would do the hedge, and he put a whole bucket on the low on who's in charge of that hedge. Now I will back it did not accompany the Prophet slice on them the next year when he went to Hutch. And there's a very specific reason why does anyone know
Because Obamacare or the law I know had his one and only Son in Islam. Right? So his his only son that was born in Islam after Islam had come was born at Luther later All right, you guys know the meat caught the station in Medina where you prepare yourself for hedge where you transition into hedge. Ababa cattle, the law and his wife a snap into vrma gave birth to his son at the me thought. Okay, so later, in the year that the prophets lie Selim was going to do Hajj. And what did he name that son since we talked about naming and how special naming is? What do you think abubaker would name his son since naming is special? I'll give you a hint. It's the most popular name in the world
today. Mohammed, okay, so the only son that Ababa could actually had in Islam, was this son Mohammed bin Abbey Beckett, who was born who was only two years old when doubleback could actually pass or when the Prophet slicin and passed away. Four years old one will buy cattle, the longtime
He passed away. So that prevented Rebecca toe the line we didn't go to hedge that particular year. He did accompany the Prophet slice alum on the conquest of Mecca, which was the return to Mecca after persecution. So fetta Mecca was when the Prophet slice and then went back to Mecca after having been run out and persecuted with his companions, and I will record all the allowance on who accompanied him on that journey. And something very special happened that day. The last holdout of a double bucket of his family while the illah Hotel and the last holdout from his family Remember last week, we said that everyone in his family became Muslim. Every single person in his family became
Muslim. The last person became Muslim that day Does anyone know who that was? No man already became Muslim man came to Medina, it was just better that they had that uh, that exchange. His father, his father of Aqua hoffa, his father was the last person to accept this lamp. And his father, by the way, would live beyond double Beckett, Abu hanifa would not die until the age of about 9798 years old, almost 100 years old, after I will buckle the Alon who passed away. At that point, His hair was white, his he had lost his eyesight. He was you know, he was so old. And that was the day he finally embraced the message that was so so beloved to his son, and he came forth to embrace Islam. Now I
will record all the Alon who just think of the scene he brings his father, a vocal halfa who could not walk on his own. At that point, his hair and his beard are completely white, he's blind. And he brings him to the prophets lie Selim on that day to accept Islam and the prophets lie Selim season and says, Yeah, abubaker hella, terracotta shake vbt he for the Hubner national la he, why didn't you leave the elderly man in his home and we would have went to him, You didn't have to bring him to me, I would have went to him. Because he saw the pain of Abu hanifa making his way in that elderly age with his son of a bucket or the law and holding his hand to embrace Islam. And I will back up on
the Allahu anhu said, the anti hackle and aka rasulillah you are more worthy of being brought to a messenger of God. So it wasn't befitting for me to bring
you to a vocal half of it. Instead, I brought him to you despite his old age. So the prophets lie Selim took his hand and he embraced Islam he became Muslim that day, and I will record all the law and who started to cry. And when he started to cry, the Sahaba some of them said, You know what, why are you crying? How they thought, ha, this is a day of joy. Why are you crying? A book Aslam, from Allah to kick your father became Muslim. This is what you'd want it your mother, oh, Becca, his mother became Muslim, right away. spouse, children, everyone was Muslim, the last person to believe is his father, why are you crying? And he said, the only country or headboard anila the buyer and
the seller lohani who was sullom? Lisa Abby, well, I can I will pilot. He said, I had hoped that the one that would stand before my before the Prophet this day, and take that allegiance would not be my father. But it would be a pilot. Instead, the uncle of the Prophet slice alum who was like a father figure to him, he said, because that would have made the profit slice. I'm happier. I know how badly he wanted that day that his uncle
would embrace Islam. And he didn't see it. Instead, he he saw it with me and my father. And I know how much the prophets lie, some wanted that moment. So it's kind of like even in those days, even in that moment of intense joy, where his father had become Muslim and those moments, he still preferred the prophets, I send them to himself, he preferred the happiness of the Prophet slice unto himself and wish that the prophets lie, some would have had that honor. Now, how solidified when I said there will never be another bubble bucket. Probably my favorite story about all bucket is this one.
In all of the stories about him that sort of showed that loyalty of the profit slice of them to those that that supported him very early on. And there's an important lesson to take from this that, you know, there's a recurring theme here with the Prophet slice them and how he honored those firsts. Right? And a lot of times, once the hard work is done, other people are put forth and we we fail to honor and respect. The people that put in the struggle and the people that put in the hard work. And this was something that the Prophet slicin was was very good about, right, the veterans event that had their place. You know, the early wonthaggi dawn, the early people of Mecca that
suffered the belaz of the world those people that almost died in bondage and slavery supporting the prophets lie Selim believed in him with everything the prophets lie some put them on a pedestal he honored those early givers. So what kind of honor Do you think well buckle the alarm.
has an apple Becker's honor surpasses every single other person amongst the companions, including Alma. All right, including Armando hapa. And this is one of my favorite, favorite incidents, if not my favorite story about Rebecca and Omar because I could just do the whole thing on this and just extract lessons about loyalty and love from this. The prophets lie, some was sitting in the masjid, so put yourself in the muscles of the Prophet slice, and I'm sitting there in Medina. And I will record all the law and who walked in, and he was holding his garments. So he was holding his his, his lower cloth, and you could see his his legs. And he looked visibly upset. He looked like he was
nervous, he looked like he was hurt. He looked like he was upset. The Prophet slicin looked at him. And he said to the companions around him, it looks like a robot could have got into an argument. You know, when you you know, your best friends so well. You can identify within the first few moments, what type of emotion they're feeling. So he didn't say, well, Beckett is anxious, or Rebecca must be in trouble. Or he said, that's the abubaker that got into an argument. He got into an argument with somebody, right? something is bothering him, but particularly he must have got into an argument with someone. So as I was walking to the Prophet sly Salaam, he already mentioned that to the companions.
He he says to the prophets lie Selim a Salaam or and ecopeace beyond to you. He says, oh, messenger of Allah.
I and Omar real hubbub, got into an argument. And in the midst of that argument, see the even the two best people the shape and the two shifts around the profit slice alone could have an argument, right? They're human beings, they love each other. But they got into an argument, and I will back up all the law on who he doesn't throw them out onto the bus. He says that I said some things I shouldn't have said in the midst of that argument. I was wrong. He's making it very clear. He doesn't say you know how hot headed it is. He doesn't take a shot at all. But he says, I said some things that I should not have said. And I regretted it. And I apologize to Omar. So I asked Omar to
forgive me, and he refused. So I'm coming to you to help me get his forgiveness. You see what's happening here. So I was wrong. Omar was right. But when I apologized, he was so upset that he didn't he didn't accept my apology. So I'm asking you, you have a sort of lot to help me seek that forgiveness. So the prophets lie Selim put his hand on his shoulder, and he said Hoffer, Allahu Allah Beckett, Allah will forgive you over Beckett, and he said it some three times calling him down. Don't worry about it. Allah forgives you. Right? So that's the first thing. And as he's saying that almost all the law on her right after he had the argument with a bucket, he felt bad about it,
that he didn't accept as a policy. So he went to our bucket his house to find him to tell him I forgive you. And he didn't find him there. So he went to the messages.
Amaro the Allahu anhu walks to the masjid and as he walks into the masjid, the prophets lie some locks eyes with him and the prophets lie Selim looks extremely upsets.
doubleback and looks at the prophets lie Southern locking eyes with almost all the law. And when he says jasola I was wrong. It was me it wasn't him. He didn't do anything wrong. I was the one that messed up. jasola It's okay, just that connection. You know, you could see that the Prophet son was visibly upset with Omar or the Allahu anhu. So I'm working on the law and he was saying I was the one who wronged him.
And as Omar will be alone, who walks up, listen to what the profit slice on him says to Armando how powerful the Alon and there are very few times you're going to see the Prophet alayhi salatu salam admonish a man like Alma, who he loves and honors to that to that level to that extent. He says to him, listen, in Allah and Allah Bethany la confer Colton kidnapped.
Allah sent me to all of you and you people said, You lie. He lies you denied me? What color what color Abubakar? sadhak and abubaker said he's telling the truth, what was sad enough, see, he will not he and he supported me with all of himself. And all of his wealth like no other person by the way, the word was sunny is he gave me as all it's the same word that the profit slice I'm used to describe how these all the olana what was happening, gave me his all she gave me her all no one could replace Khadija, right? The time the Prophet admonishes it says when she insults Khadija, now it's almost no one can replace Khadija no one replaces Abacus, right? He gave me his all in the very
beginning, his self, his wealth, everything. And the prophets lie Selim puts his hand on a bucket on the alarm and when he says hell and Tom tardy call
are heavy. Are you people going to leave my companion alone? Can you imagine he's saying that's almost all the law on her Will you people leave this man this friend of mine alone. And he said it two times on a lahardee he was solemn. And above the law on who was sitting in the gathering who narrated, he said somehow Ooh, the other day, he said, no one dared mess with a bucket after that moment. Like the point was driven to everybody that this was the profit slice on his best friend, this was his companion. And the Prophet had a special place for him, that no one messed with him. now realize the prophets lie. Selim was not speaking to the substance of the argument that
transpired in the first place. He was speaking to a model of the law whose reluctance to forgive him and saying that this man had no reluctance in believing in me. And so you should have no reluctance and forgiving him just because of his status with me, while the allot of time and again that same word of what you know why Sonny? That he supported me, he gave me his all when no one else would give me anything was very special. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said the Hadith of the long time and he said, Molly, I had dinner in dinner. Yeah, done in La wakad Cafe. Now, mahala Becker, he said sallallahu wasallam that every single person who did a favor for us we have repaid
that person he said except for a barbecue. For in Lahore, Indiana. Yeah, them. You can feel hula, he said that he has a special place that Allah will compensate him on the Day of Judgment. I could never pay him back. You imagine that I've never been able to pay up a bucket of back. I've never been able to pay him back. But Allah will pay him back on the Day of Judgment. One man affair any man who hadn't got man or any man will be back here. He said that and no one's money and wealth benefited me the way that that apobec had his wealth benefited me mean the money the way that he spent on this mission early on. No one benefited me with their wealth the way that Rebecca did. And
he said well, according to more techie than Hollywood and let us to vector in kalila and we're in a Sahiba Khun Holly Lola. Oh honey Ravana Theory Y and Sahiba company Rama he says all along are you some if I was to take a special friend Holly is a special friend of mine. He has an exclusive friends. You know you have special friends but Helene is your exclusive friend, your closest friend who does a lot call his saline in the Quran. Abraham Brahim and Islam is the Helene of God, the kalila of Allah, the special friend of Allah. Right now, the way they're in the profit slice I'm said that if I was to take anyone as a colleague, it would have been double Beckett but Allah
already took me as a family.
The way the scholars talk about that is that only Allah could have more than one Helene a human being could only have one. So Allah has more than one Helene more than one special friend that exclusivity because laws Mercy is different from our mercy. His love is different from our love, but that honey is your best friend, your special friends, your exclusive friends. And the prophets lie. Some said if I was to give anyone that status, it would have been a bucket of the a lot of time when I can no Sahiba Come on, man. He said he says, Well, I can no Sahiba come hollyrock man, he said but instead, your companion is a little rock man has been taken as the lead of the Most Merciful. And
the prophets lie. Some of them of course acknowledge this on multiple occasions, none so more than when the Prophet sly son was passing away. So when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam was passing away, before people even recognize any signs of him passing away, I was sorry, the hoodie or the Allahu anhu. He says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam stood up, the Messenger of Allah stood up in the masjid. And he says, In the La Jolla, Ibadan, vein of dunya, ouabain Omar in the who, da da da de kelab do not in de la. Allah has given a choice to one of his servants between that which is in this world and that which is in the hereafter. Now, when the prophets lie, some
says that it seems to be that he's just talking about, you know, some some random person or he's giving an example an analogy, right? So he's giving, he's giving a sermon. And he says, the law has given a choice to one of his servants, between that which is in this world and that which is in the hereafter. And then he says, and that servant chose that which is with Allah. So that servant did not choose the goodness of this world that servant instead chose the goodness that is with Allah. Now if you looked at the prophets lie Selim that day, you would not have noticed him being ill he didn't look sick, yet he looked fully healthy. So it you know, it just seemed to be another hopeless
another analogy. Now, I will say what the law on who he says
When the prophet SAW Some said that I will back it will be a low on who started to weep.
And he said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam today Nakia rasulillah we are in our Omaha, Tina, may our mothers and fathers we sacrifice for you a messenger of Allah, so an expression of love that may or may we all be sacrificed for you a messenger of Allah. And I'm sorry that we had no idea what he meant by that. And he said that I will back up started to cry and he says I did naliboki we were all confused by his crying so we all looked around at each other. Why is he crying so much that that statement was not meant to evoke that level of emotion? I will Beckett is weeping and weeping and weeping and weeping. And then I will say it says something funny happened, you know,
when you see someone crying and you just cry because they're crying.
So they all started to cry because of the amount of pain that they saw and the weeping of of a vacuum. So aboubaker is crying, made everybody else in the message of cry. What just seemed to be a very standard statement from the prophets lie. Some of them impacted double Beckett and then by extension impacted everybody else. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said once again, he says that the person who has favored me most with himself, and his wealth is Abu Bakr, and he said, If I was to take a Helene, other than my Lord, I would have taken a Wilbekin as a colleague, but what keeps us together as the Brotherhood of Islam and our friendship, then the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam pointed to all of the gates in the masjid See, the companions had doors that open to the mosque. And the prophets lie Selim said all of these doors should be closed. So not only have the above all these doors, shut them in the lobby back, except for the door of Abu Bakr, let every other gate be close to the messages, except for the gate of Abu Bakr. And by the way, protip if you go to Medina, when you enter from as a number with the muscles of the profit slice on a bucket, five chandelier above the bucket, the gate of rubble bucket which goes straight to the back here, five chandelier is in, you'll see a distinction that's where the gate of a bucket
or the Alon who used to be where he would enter the hazard from himself and the profits license that everyone else's gate should be shut, except for his gates, because no matter what I do, I cannot repay this man for what he has done for me. Then the profits lie son's health starts to worsen, then his health starts to deteriorate. And then you find some of these narrations where the prophets lie some is indicating the leadership of our bucket or the allow Thailand a woman comes to the Prophet peace be upon him and asks him for something.
And she notices that the prophet SAW some is ill and she says if I if I come back and you're not here, what should I do? Allah ater in them a Ditka? What if I don't catch you on messenger of Allah the Prophet slice I'm said if you don't find me then go to abubaker so he's directing people towards abubaker the law on him and then when the Prophet peace be upon him was too sick to leave the salon to leave the prayer. He told the companions to appoint robucket to lead the prayer. Now, Rebecca will the law I know how to problem his voice was very low. And he was extremely emotional so when he would read the Quran he would cry. Okay, so his voice was not would not travel and back then you
didn't have the microphones right? So his voice wouldn't travel the way that some of the other companions their voices would travel. And so Isha and have some Allah be pleased with them. They said to the Prophet slicin Why don't you put it on moto Omar has a booming voice. Ahmed could fill the messages Omar doesn't need a microphone right? Not this armor that Armor All right, just be clear. I need a microphone. The profit side some you know insists and the way they said they said that Abu Bakr is a thief he's soft spoken he cries a lot his voice does not travel and I saw the law and I said I was concerned about him right it's not just it wasn't about a status thing here it's
there's a concern right people are gonna get frustrated you know there's gonna be some tension whatever it may be put on water instead of the law I know has a commanding voice, the profit slice and I'm sad moral of the bucket for you suddenly bananas go tell Rebecca to leave the people in prayer. Now the profits listen I'm a sick and then he hears the voice of Amada in prayer and such.
The prophets lie some sat up and he said aina back here in our backyard where his double bucket where as a Wilbekin yet the la hora pseudo Allah and His Messenger refuse except for aboubaker. Somehow it's an insistence right. This is not just about someone leading the prayer. This is about appointing someone as a clear successor. Let him
Lead the prayer and Wilbekin. The prophets lie some insisted that Abubakar will be allowed to lead the prayer. And so the Wilbekin will the law and who would lead 17 prayers while the prophets lie some was alive because of his deteriorating health, so he would lead for over three days on the low tide and her three and a half days. And then finally, I shall have the low Anna narrated that Rebecca the law and who was leading the people in prayer and the prophets lie Selim worked up enough strength to be able to come out and to pray with the people he came out I think is salatu salam in a single garment wrapped up sallallahu alayhi wa sallam barely able to stand on his own. And while I
will Becquerel, the law and who was was, was starting the prayer, the prophets lie some sat next to him and prayed. Now there's a laugh here there's a difference did the prophets lie some lead the prayer and Rebecca de la announced announce, after the profit slice number double buckle the law and who lead the prayer and the prophets lie Selim pray behind him It wouldn't be the first time the prophets lie some prayed behind him. But here
you know, the most of the narrations seem to suggest which that the prophets I send them was too soft in his voice at that time to be able to project he sat down I will record all the law and who pray to his right. The prophets lie some of them lead double bucket and double back and lead the people okay meaning Wilbekin will the law and it was the one that projected the voice and the people followed the voice of our backyard while Rebecca followed the voice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam passed away. Wilbekin will be allowed to add on who
was actually out of the city of Medina. He came back to the city of Medina. And this is where I show the law and the narrates that the Prophet cites that I will back it on the law and who got down from his horse. He walked past everybody in the messages. All right. Now, realize when we said that when the Prophet peace be upon and passed away, everyone started to cry, everyone started to scream. There was absolute panic in the mustards. Okay, I will back it all the law on home, got off his horse and he walked through the entire scene and he didn't talk to anybody.
went straight to the house of his daughter. I said the house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
I saw the law and he says that he came in, he knelt down for Kesha. And once he he sallallahu wasallam, he unveiled the face of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and you can imagine this was the man that preferred the life of the prophet to himself. Right? This was the man that would throw himself in front of the Prophet sly. So let's take a beating, take death for the profit slice. I mean, he's looking at the face of the profit slice on him and he's passed away. So I saw the law and he says, from Canada and he, he he fell on the profit side. So he put his head on the body of the Prophet sly, somebody started to weep on the allot of time. And then she said, For cabella, who
kissed he kissed the forehead of the Prophet slice and this is actually one of the how we take the film or one of the rulings of kissing the debt is from this moment where I will record all the law on who kiss the forehead of the Prophet slice on them, after he had passed away and realize when the prophets lie some had passed away his face was brighter than the moon it was shining. You know if any of you have ever seen a righteous person when they pass away and their face imagine the face of the prophets lie Selim, when he was done, so it was shining, and we buckled the law and who said typically, Allah Hyun will meet and you are pure must help pure or are you a messenger of Allah,
when you are alive, and when you are dead, luggage metal la hora, aka mo to attain Allah will not combine for you to ducks, you will not die twice, you will not die twice Mota to lead the allottee cootie betallic. As for the death that Allah has written for you, you have already died that death Never again will you'd suffer a messenger of Allah, this is the last death that you will have a messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and again, that's the maturity the understanding that doubleback had had. He then walks out to the Mazda that as we said last week, all metal the allow an extremely emotional, was threatening the people who said that the prophets lie, some had died. He
didn't want to believe it. And he said that the prophets lie Selim like Moses went to his Lord for 40 days, he'll come back, he's not gone and he called people hypocrites. We're not 15 Now we'll back in with the law and who said Tim, sit down your home and he didn't sit down. I would like you to set it to him again. He didn't sit down and then I will back it on the law and we'll start to speak and everyone gathered around him, while the longtime assign of his clear leadership and he said that Mohamed Salah lohani was Saddam was not but a messenger. Whoever used to worship Mohammed the know that Mohammed is dead sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and whoever used to worship Allah know that God is
alive and does not die. And then he recited the ayah from earlier Emraan
As we had mentioned, and assumed that that that understanding, right gathered the people back on that understanding in those moments that as much as they love the profit slice, and you know, this is something special, and so the allowance out on home, and this is actually not a narration, it's in the subtext of one of the AHA definitivamente, Anasazi, Allah and who mentions that, when I went back to the spoke like that, everyone knew that I would like and love the Prophet slicin most so it wasn't like someone dismissing the love that the people had for the Prophet slice on them. If there is anyone that was going to be torn apart in those moments that was going to be on the ground,
screaming, pounding, crying, whose heart was more broken, it was awful back in the lawn. But the fact that he said that, knowing his love for the profit slice on that, look, we loved him, because a lot chosen, we loved him because we loved him. But more than that, we loved him because of who he was. And what he would want from us is to continue that message. The fact that Abu Bakr or the law on who had that clarity in that command in those moments, showed that his love to the Prophet slicin, and was also not one that would ever be exaggerated to a point that it would obscure the truth from him. He understood the truth, he understood what the prophet slicin was meant to achieve.
And I will buckle the law on who was able to, to command that in those moments. And in his first words, assuming that he laughs and this is something very interesting about robucket is that as much as the prophets lie, some told him that he's the greatest that he's his best friend, that he's the first of the companions. He never actually believed that not not believed that in the sense that he considered the Prophet slice. I'm not to be truthful, but he never allowed that. To make him arrogance right believes it in a way that would make him complacent or arrogance. And stop trying. Right. So those morning runs that he takes to the old, blind woman out in the outskirts of Medina to
cook cook for her to wash her clothes to get things ready. Well, no one else knew. All of that was because Wilbekin will the law had this this pursuit, right? And he felt like he needed to do better at all times. And that humility showed even in his first address, now Subhan Allah today, a man who whose name we won't mention passed away. All right, somehow Beckett's Anakin was somewhat adult, and no one sheds a tear, right? No one sheds a tear. You think about a leader who commits volume, right? And you think about a leader who leaves behind a legacy, a leader of humility. aboubaker does not stand up and say that you know who I am. And the prophets lie, some said this, this, this this about
me. He didn't sit there and quote his virtues. He didn't try to solidify his authority by listing his credentials. What were the more the first words out of the bucket, his mouth, addressing the oma as its as the successor of the profits license. Au Hannah's in the card will lead to alikum well as to be highly calm. Oh, people I've been placed in charge of you, but I'm not the best of you.
That's his first sentence. I am not the best of you. But I've been placed in charge of you want us to be hiring them for an accidental fairy nuni what an asset to for our morning. He said that if I do good,
then support me. If I do bad straighten me out. You know, we live in an era where you have real Ummah, people using their mama using the scholarship, the turban to solidify dictators and oppressive rulers and say this is the Sunnah of the Prophet slicin um, said you've got a boss, what do you got to support William Mo. This is support on sort of hoc allottee man or mother room support your brother when he's oppressed and when he's oppressing. This is how you support a leader. You stop them when they oppress, and double buckle the law and who's setting a clear tone. When I do well support me when I do wrong, straighten me out. Give me rights, give me the advice that I need
and put me on the path that I need to be put on a sitcom anana. Well, Kelley Blue piano, he said well the amount of time that truthfulness is a trust,
a suitable amount of hear, what he means is that you know, as deep as the most truthful person, the greatest quality of leadership is integrity. So the manifestation of the manifestation of truthfulness in leadership is integrity. Right? A lack of corruption, a citko, Amana? Well, Kevin, and the greatest manifestation of lying and dishonesty and leadership is betrayal, the betrayal of people's trusts. And by the way that when the prophets lie Selim said and this is very important, the prophets lie Some said that of the signs of the Day of Judgment until Amana that trust is lost.
And what was the profit slice I'm talking about when he said trust is lost. He said that the righteous leaders pass away. Right? So it's he connected the loss of righteous leadership to the loss of trust. Okay, so Subhana Allah, the most essential quality to be found in a leader is truthfulness, integrity, of electoral the law on who is the most truthful, hence he's the most deserving leader leader, the most honorable and noble leader. Why because he recognized this ascetical anana Well, caribou, piano athlete only now applied to law Suda for either as a to law how rasuna fella thought de la calm again, once again, reiterating follow me so long as I follow along
in His Messenger, if I don't follow along his messenger, there is absolutely no binding obedience on your part. Okay, and this is just a, you know, this is the core theme, the message that I will Becquerel, the law on who is giving, and Subhanallah he is the first person to assume leadership in this oma, you would think that a man and that's in that state would fear the loss of the loss of obedience, the inability to be able to control people, the inability to be able to properly govern, because you're not Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam right? You've got these people that are already saying, we're not paying Zakat anymore. You've got these people that are already saying that we have
a new Prophet, right? You got all these people that are taking advantage of the situation that this is no longer the prophet in charge, right. But I will record all the law on who's setting a tone of humility. And the amazing thing is that by that tone of humility and integrity, he won the oma. Right? He was able to govern properly, have a record of the law and he was the only one qualified, obviously not assassinated, right. I mean, I will back it all the law on who gained the trust of the people by his transparency. And his clear his loss is clear sincerity to a lot to the messenger and to them. Right. And so that's the tone that will bucket a lot of the a lot of Todd on his sets from
the very beginning. That way, you know that when that leader takes a tough stance, they're not taking it from a place of power and domination and control. They're taking it from a place of trying to uphold the truth properly. And this is I said, one of my favorite stories. Another favorite story. And by the way, we learned again, the tetapi of Walmart came at the hand of Apple bucket Wilbekin raised almost as a leader, he taught him what it was like to be a leader after the profit slice on who taught them all how to be leaders on how to learn from oval bucket how to be a leader how to be a balanced mind. There was a situation that arose where the prophets lie, some appointed
a 17 year old Osama bin
Salman was a little the alongside the son of a freed slave. Right. So you already got the lineage issue. Right? He was black, very black. Well, the Allahu taala on him. So you got the race issue. All right. He's chipping away at all of their, their their old biases, right? You've got the age, he's 17 years old. And the prophets lie some put him in charge of the Muslim army. And you've got the the veterans of Osama all the time who was a baby when that happened.
And you've got these people and they all have to line up behind Osama bin Zayed little the Alon host. So some of the elders of the companions didn't like that. And when the Prophet sly son passed away, Osama will the law and had been appointed as the leader of the Muslim army. And some of the Sahaba told us, they said, Look, we know you have a bucket list here. Right? We know you can talk to our bucket. So why don't you go to our bucket? You know, why don't you delay things a bit. Take some time to think about this. And if you're going to go forth, then why don't you put someone who's older than Osama in charge. Okay, so they didn't bring up the tribalism issue. They didn't bring up
race they didn't bring up those things. It was age we are we have people that are senior that have fought in a million battles.
Maybe Yeah, but could you can consider someone else. Okay, so Omar goes to the house of Rebecca will so have a go with Omar. All right. Omar huge big man booming voice intimidating. Oh bucket as we said very skinny not physically intimidating at all soft spoken not physically intimidating at all. Amato the law and who walks into the house the Sahaba are waiting outside the law and who says you know, I will Becca, some of us will have are saying that maybe you should consider placing one of the heads of the unsought or the elders of the mohabbatein in charge instead of Osama bin Zayed maybe he's a little bit young and you can you know take some time to reconsider this model the law
on who gravel Beckett or the law and who grabs almost beard. He pulls him to his face.
So small, you know, again, physically small, but uh
giant of a man well the law of town hall pulling all metal the law no I'm saying wait wait wait hold on you the one that was going around today be a lesson adhoc were the ones on the truth aren't they on you now you're saying this and he pulls out of the law and when he looks him in the eye and this is brother of Wilbekin and Omar are the two closest of the companions after the prophets lie some they are the hearing in the sight of the prophets lie Selim. That's how the Prophet described
and he says to him sucky Let's go home okay, Omar, may your mother lose you Omar which was an expression it wasn't against the person because the prophets lie Some said it tomorrow. While the aloud I know he certainly was not asking for something bad to happen to him but it was the expression of the arrows like you know, one to express you know, shock at what was said right so when we're asked the prophets lie some would people be charged for what they say with their tongues the prophets license that's lucky Latika omocha Jamar Mayer mother loser Omar eyes which was the which was an expression to the Arabs that they had back then so sucky Latika. omocha Yama, may your
mother lose you Alma Do you want me
to do something different than what the prophets lie some did? You want me to disobey the prophets license orders he gave an explicit order to put us out of Windows eight and charge you want me to do that? Now I'm not on the line who was not offended? I'm not on the line who was not like let go of my beard and let's fight. Who Do You Think You Are you you know your halifa already? And you think no no, I'm not on the lawn who was embarrassed? put his head down and he said no. And he apologized to America for even bringing up the thought. Alma walks out all of the Sahaba that were concerned are waiting outside the house and they see all metal the law on a walkout with his head down and
they say what happened your alma he said me all of your mother's lose you.
He said You made me upset double Beckett and I hate upsetting aboubaker I don't like to make up a bucket of mad. Rebecca is not a man who gets mad much. You made me upset on record. I hate getting overworked and upset. Right? So somehow Allah Almighty knew that what Becca said was not out of arrogance or pride. He wasn't trying to discipline him. He was that's a that's a close brother. He knows what he was saying. was out of putting the Sunnah first, that that what the prophet slicin said comes first. And he wanted you know, he clearly wanted to deliver that message to honorable hip hop, about the Allahu taala. And when Abubakar will the alongside and who carried on. And as we said
he was able to set this vision, the way that he was able to set this vision. And I'm not going to go into the details of his khilafah
but I'll just say that so Allah in two years I will Becquerel the law on hope you remember that dream, the prophets lie, some had this dream, where he saw a well, and the Prophet sighs I'm Drew from this well, and then he gave the buckets apobec and and Rebecca drew from this well, and the prophets lie Some said Rebecca was not able to draw much and then almost took the bucket and almost gave water to everyone and everything around and I'm bringing this up again later on inshallah, but specifically in the context of bubble Beckett, what it means for him, almost took the water and he gave water to all the people and to all the animals on the lawn, who was strong drawing from that
well, and the profit slice on him was speaking about the nature of their philanthropy, what record or the law and who was able to do in that two and a half years of being the halifa was basically to set the vision of the prophets lie Selim as the trajectory to plug all the holes, right, the father of the Quran are being killed. The people who memorize the Quran are being killed, people are refusing sokar now, people are claiming new Prophethood of obec under the law and who plugged it all in and handed that bucket to Omar and Omar was able to execute based on what he learned from the Prophet sighs summonable Beckett will the law on who in a way that made him a balanced leader, and
in a way that allowed him to take that message to the whole world in such a beautiful way. May Allah be pleased with them also, although back at all the law on who in two and a half years literally held it together, literally held it together, made sure that Islam post prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would stay true to what he brought. He kept it upon that all the time. And when I look back at all the law I know was just two years into this pinata.
I saw the law and he says that he took a cold shower one day and he got sick.
And for two weeks, I will Becquerel, the law on whose condition worsened and he started to have fevers and again, you know, somehow back then they don't diagnose the way that we diagnose things right. It's a fever and you died right? A cold fever, some sort of sickness and you die, right. So he started to develop a fever. He started to deteriorate while the low tide on home. And in those two weeks of obec cable the law on who asked it shall have the Aloha and her few question.
The first thing he said, he said, I want you to go to my wealth, I want you to see the money that I have.
And he said, I want you to compare the amount that I have now, to the amount that I had, before I assumed that
before I became the halifa, if there is any discrepancy in that amount, then it is not from my money, you give that to you put that back in beta a lot. And that goes to the next Khalifa to to deal with, you know, what that means is that I will back it'll be low on hold. Again, this was the man who didn't want to leave a single good deed. After becoming the leader. He did not want to do anything that would compromise his reputation compromise his place after after that, that moment, will the allowance add on one. So here, he's saying that don't include this in my inheritance, if you find a single discrepancy, and there was only a few good humps that she was able to find? Where
there was a discrepancy, then I will back out on the law on home.
He asks, I shall he says How old was the Prophet sly someone he died?
So she said he was 63? Well, Beckett will the law and I said to him that a lamb 63.
Right. So he he took joy, that he was the same age as the Prophet slicin when he passed away, and he knew the answer, but he was, you know, reaffirming them, right. Then she said, and then he said to me, he said, How did what was he buried in? Right? What were the cloths that he use? So she said that he used three clots, three white clots from Yemen. It is Salatu was Salam that he wrapped himself in, which is what we normally do with the Kapha. Right, the three white clots. So I will back it will take a lot of time, he said that I want to use three pieces as well. And he took two that he already had while the allowance had on him. And he asked he said to purchase a third one Hi,
some of the law on her said, Oh my father, we have enough where we could purchase all three you don't have to just purchase one. Right? You don't have to use old clothes to for your Kevin and I will back it'll be a lot of time and look at that vision, some kind of law. He said that the new clothes will be more beneficial to those that are living than those that have died, I have no benefit from getting new clothes. Or a new Kevin. He said the cloth the Kevin for the dead body is meant to absorb the blood of the body and to cover it out and to cover it. I don't need new clothes. I don't need new sheets even if we have enough money, it's better it's of more benefit to the to the
living it would do better and charity. So just purchase one more white sheet that I would need for my kathlyn I will record all the allowance out on hand this is somehow love very you know this is very special. It's a poetic death. And one that would only be be fitting to a person like that. Well Beckett on the line who takes his own coffin, his own garment. He lays down and he says to me, he shall have the law on her. What day the prophets lie some die. She said it was a Monday.
The Prophet sly seldom said or then Wilbekin all the law and who said and what is today. She said it's Monday I will record the law and who smiled and he said inshallah Allium today.
Meaning I want to go today I want to die the same day, in the same cloth, the same age, everything. So how long his life was in accordance with the profits license, I want my death to be like the death of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
And I will back it will be a long time and he laid down and he started to shiver from the strength of his of his fever or the or the deterioration. And he reminded me he saw the law on how about the Hadeeth of the three moons or the time that she saw three moons I had a dream
where she had three moons descending in her in her room. We talked about this in the story of Khadija right? And she asked a bucket who used to interpret dreams what it meant and I will back it on the low end who said three righteous people are going to be buried in your home. And when the prophets lie some died and was buried in her home. He said that's your first moon. The second moon was him.
Well buckle up the lavon who was dying in the same house that the Prophet slicin died in the Prophet slicin was under the ground Beckett is above the ground and so the Wilbekin on the low on who is the second of those three moons and I will back it on the allotted time on home leaves this world reciting the same verse over and over and over again it was the the words of Joseph of use of it Salaam when use of it Salaam was dying and he said to us any Muslim man well Hackney bisaya hain. Allow me to die as a believer and following the path of the righteous allow me to die in the belief as a believer and follow in the path of the righteous. And I will back it was repeating that over
and over and over again. How did the prophets life
Some die What were the words on the lips of the Prophet slicin them?
honor Allah the highest companionship abubaker Oh Allah, let me join those highest companions. Right? That's what he meant. That's what he meant when he kept on saying, allow me to follow in the righteous are in Chateau de la and her witness the death of the Prophet sly summon she witnessed the death of a robocall the law of Thailand. And it was no sooner than the last word of the ayah escaping his lips or the law of town I know that I shall have the law and he says that he took a breath and he died.
So Pamela last words telephony let's see man. While happening the salon to hang his last word means slotta hain the righteous. He breathes his last all the lowdown on how he died between the hours of mclubbe and airasia, 63 years old, like the profit slice of them in the house of the profit slice of them on the same day that the profit slice of them died in the same Kevin that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was was buried in and Subhanallah when he died, he was buried like if you go now and you say Salaam as soon as you as you pass by what's the recommended act when you go through Medina and you say salam alayka Allah so Allah and then you say Salaam to Abu Bakr and Omar you
greet you greet them all with peace. And you know, as you're walking from the man's side, so the women's side is actually closer to the bodies themselves, it's closest to the body of the profit slice of them. A lot of times people think it's three windows, so the heads are this way, right? But what it actually is, is that the profit slice arm is buried closest to the women's side, his face facing the Qibla Okay, so actually this way His face is facing towards the prayer direction towards the Qibla. So when you walk by and you say Salaam or aka Rasulullah the Prophet size on his body and face is facing towards you. And then you walk over our back and all the law on who was buried just
next to the Prophet slicin with his head, the top of his head at his shoulder. So panela It's so beautiful that even the way that they are situated and then all model the low angle. The same way with a double buckle the low angle is like this. Okay, so when you are saying Salaam you're closest to the body of our model, the Allahu anhu starts the Prophet slicin and then the head of aboubaker right next to the shoulder of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also facing towards the direction of prayer, the Qibla and then the head of Amato the law and who also facing towards the third moon facing towards that, that Qibla. And I want to add some how to love with these few
statements and this is a long one. So I'm not going to read the whole thing. We'll say the blue stuff. One he says the day that Rebecca died and this is this tells you something he said that Medina wept like it did the day the prophets lie some died. The people of Medina again the blue cat, the crying that you heard in the city of Medina was like the crying that you heard, the day that the prophet SAW some died. There are only two times you heard that level of crying. And he narrates this beautiful incident with the idea of Nabil thought about all the Allahu taala and who now remember it was the most eloquent
and at ease eulogy, at the body of faulty model, the low understanding at the gravesite of Fatima was probably the most painful words you'll hear from a person bidding farewell to their beloved ones. Ideal the Allahu taala on who came to the the side of Wilbekin will do a lot of time at home. And he shares some of the most beautiful words and I'm not going to be able to go through the whole of it, it would take me about 10 minutes to read the whole thing. He starts to mention the virtues of apobec it'll be a long time
and a poetic way that only a little the Allahu tannehill could and I'm just gonna recite just a few sentences from you could find the whole ethos or the whole the whole idea of identity a lot of time on her for a while back under the law and we said lucky makalah Yeah, Becca, may Allah have mercy on you. Oh, Becca, Quinta, oh, well, COVID me Islam and Lhasa home imana will shut the homea clean and you were the first of the people to become Muslim, the most sincere of them in faith. And the most certain of them are the strongest of them in your certainty. And then he starts to mention he says Quinta in the whole demand Zilla to summary, well, bustle you were to the prophets. I send them what
hearing and sight is to a person. You were his hearing and you were his site. So Dr. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heyneke at lava. Who knows? You believed in him when everyone else called him a liar. For some Mark Allahu Phaeton Ziva. He's a deacon. So a lot named you in His revelation. acidic, the most truthful of them and he says
saitta who Hina Buffalo and Seta who means you you supported him when others had deserted him. Well, Quinta Mourinho and the Makati Hina Cardew, and you remained firm by his side when others had left him. And then he says, What's law have to hold? Fish shuddha the economic social, and you were there with him with your companionship in the most beautiful and most noble of ways 30th name, the second of the two, well saw he will fulfill heart and his companion in the cave, referring to that, that moment that Allah subhanaw taala refers to in the digital when the Prophet sly summonable bucketed were together in a lot of fold one whereas the valley his Sakina and the one on whom Allah descended
tranquility. So and you know, the Allahu anhu is referring to those moments. And there's so much to be said in the in these words again, you could you could look up the whole eulogy of it for a bucket, but there's there's there a couple of lines that just that stuck out to me. He says Quinta Ababa home soul upon what?
You were the softest of them in voice or you had the lowest voice amongst them, but the highest amongst them in distinction. You have the lowest voice but the highest honor will buckle the low on who had such a soft voice but such a high distinction. Well, Quintanilla, Nina urban or Haman is sodwana a karianna. Beautiful, he says you were to the believers like a merciful Father when they suddenly became orphans, and the Prophet slicin and passed away.
He was still alive Salaam Alaikum de Manzella till I empty like a father or a demon come I teach you. So he said to America, you were like a merciful Father, when we all suddenly became orphans subject Allah He subcon buried, you have have gone forth sebata we talked about the first this is why a robot can hold the law on who is the irreplaceable first the ultimate first and no one ever gets to touch that first. He says you have you have surpassed everyone with a distance that cannot be reached by anyone else. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said about the law on whom Allah is chumps what Allah had invented Nabina, while mursaleen halen and Abby Beckett that the sun has not risen or
set on anyone after the messengers or the prophets, that is better than apobec it'll be allowed to add on. And by the way, it's important to mention that the prophets lie some did not just say he's the best of this oma said he's the best after the prophets and the messengers. There is no person who is not a prophet of Allah, or a messenger of Allah that could surpass this man, although I know his status is sanctified as the first after the prophets and the messengers of Allah. May Allah send his peace and blessings upon them all. And I'll end with this hadith were uploaded all the time who says that the prophets lie Selim said job de la de Islam Gabriel took me by the hand and he showed
me the gate of Paradise, the gate of Jenna that my people would enter from so this is the night of an assault with marriage the night where a Rebecca would actually receive the name so the the truthful one, because he believed the prophets lie Selim on that night when everyone else had hesitations. So he said the prophets lie some was describing Sabrina Islam showed me that gate that my people would enter Jelena from our back end or the Allahu anhu said, Yasuda Allah, O Messenger of Allah. What did to any coming to America? hetta unloader la said How I wish that I could have been there with you. I could have seen it.
I've been with you all this time. I've been with you in every significant moment of your life. Your best friends, right? I will back it was with the Prophet sly someone every one of his expeditions from the very start to the very last moment. But he couldn't go with him on a Slauson mirage. No human being could travel with him on that night to the heavens. So he said I wish I could have been there with you. So I could see that gate. Yeah, this little. The prophets lie. Some of them said to Rebecca or the Allahu anhu in nicaea abubaker a woman yet Hello, gentlemen almighty.
You are abubaker the first person who will enter Paradise from my nation.
So Subhana Allah that first person entering into Jenna after the Prophet slice alum from this oma, as I will record all of the Allahu taala an Escalade send us peace and blessings upon His messengers, ally Salaam, the prophets and messengers, his family and companions, and we asked a lot to make us amongst those who follow that path. We ask Allah to allow us to take from those good qualities what we can and we ask a lot that even if we cannot surpass a Wilbekin or the law
One rank that perhaps a lot join us with him and with the messengers, ally Solomon the companions and those great ones by virtue of our love for them a llama Ameen.
