So now money come Welcome to labor cast everyone and welcome back to the first Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah why the heat will be heat woman Voila. So tonight we begin been dying Tyler with the story of a great woman who has a legacy that really extends far beyond some kind of law, her time with the Prophet sallallahu. It was sudden, but at the same time,

00:00:29--> 00:01:08

her story of entering into Islam and the unique trials that she faced, like many others, give us a lot of insights into the early struggles of some of these converts, as well as some of the lessons that we can take for our own trials and tribulations. And of course, once again appreciating the prophets, Allah lahardee was set up and how he dealt with these unique situations now with own cinema, while the Allahu taala and we're really going to talk about her story in two parts. So we're going to have to separate this out in shot let's add, the first part is her life with a boo Selma on the left side on who her first husband prior to the Prophet solahart he was someone who has a great

00:01:08--> 00:01:50

ranking himself, you know, we were talking about Jaffa, but nobody thought about the low tide and who being overshadowed by it. Have you thought about the low tide and talk about Abu selama you know, how often have you heard of the story of Abu selama who has a story himself that is worth its own biography. So we're going to talk about the early entrance into Islam of unsettlement Abu salah and the painful struggle of this family to uphold what Allah subhana wa tada had given to them. And then of course, the separation of these two more than once and then coming into the life of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam through the marriage of Southern metal the one hand and we'll talk about

00:01:50--> 00:02:35

her legacy as such, inshallah tada from next week with Natasha so let's talk about these two inshallah Tada. And there's a lot of family connections for us to draw. Her name is hint bent a be omiya. Adnan Molina hint bent Abby omiya Adnan Molina, she is from the tribe of MK zoom. And if you have heard the tribe of Muslim many times, it's because it's the famous tribe of the likes of Abuja, and the likes of Khalid diviner worried about the Allahu taala and who so it's a powerful tribe, as you know, it is a tribe that, you know, has something to do with much of the early rivalry with the Prophet sallallahu. It was set up it is the tribe that tortured the family of Soumya Amar, Yasser,

00:02:35--> 00:03:19

and it is a tribe that also produce some of the greatest companions, eventually to the Prophet sallallahu. And he was telling him of course, um, Sonoma, and Selma both being from this tribe amongst Benelux zoom, so her father of omiya was not just any masumi he was not just any tribesmen, but rather he was the tribal chief of Sonoma zoom. He was known for his nobility, he was known for his generosity. He was known particularly for his hospitality to those that would come to Mecca for the various pilgrimages and festivals that would take place. So if you if you remember with with Johanna, there was this idea of benromach zoom and bento Hashim competing. And a lot of that

00:03:19--> 00:04:06

competition, you know, came down to hospitality. So Obama was known as the one that would finance most of the hospitality on behalf of Benelux zoom, to those that would come to Mecca. So she grows up in this home of a noble leader. Now her brothers on Abdullah and lead, they're also companions of the Prophet sly Selim, but she proceeds all of her brothers to Islam. So Abdullah and what Ede would would do his later on and they would embrace Islam later on in the Madani period, not in the early days of persecution in Mecca, and Ahmed would accept Islam at 30 Makkah the conquest of Mecca. Pamela one of the beautiful things about this is you have one of the situations where a brother is

00:04:06--> 00:04:55

narrating a hadith from his sister. So many of the Hadith that we have from almost elemental, the Allahu taala, Anna, come through her brother Ahmed, who would accept Islam at the conquest of Mecca. So she proceeds all of her siblings to Islam, but her three brothers would become Muslim. Her first cousin was Khalid invalidate all the Allahu taala. And if you think about the the chain here you have on Selma hint, bent a b omega and then molera Khalid never eat and then Molina right so there's a cousin in Khalid all the time, and Abuja was her father's cousin. So she's not just from the same tribe as Abuja, who is the chief enemy of the prophets lie Selim, or of Khalid who would fight

00:04:55--> 00:05:00

against the prophets lie Selim for most of the prophets, liasons life in Islam, but that

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

Then become of course the hero in Islam. But she's she's also their direct relative. She's also and this is this is a really interesting points of Hannah law that sometimes can be lost. She is also the sister of Amar vinyasa through breastfeeding. Now remember, there is the law at the time where and of course till now, where lineage or rather brothers and sisters Muslim relationships can be established through through breastfeeding. So she is the sister of Amami acid through through breastfeeding. She is actually the one who narrates a very famous narration about our model neosurf all the time and who that took to the Armada elfia to the belt here that our model the low tide and

00:05:44--> 00:06:30

who would be killed by the transgressing army. And she narrates this as the prophets lie Selim is is moving his fingers through the hair of a mob while the allow data no so it gives you some insight also into been on zoom where you have yes and Soumya growing up and Ahmad growing up amongst Benelux zoom, but of course, never actually from benrahma zoom because of their status, but she is related to our model biasa all the Allahu Allah and who weren't any ultramarine so there's a lot to be said about that. Now let's talk about her husband, her husband, Abdullah, if not Abdullah Asad, also masumi from benromach zoom. And he was the prophet SAW lahardee wisdoms cousin from his mother's

00:06:30--> 00:07:19

side. So the mother of Abdullah not an asset who is Abu selama his mother was bum la venta abdomen polyp, his mother was Bella Binti Abdullah mo polyp. So she is the the, of course the aunt of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam making a boo Salama, the first cousin of the prophets lie some and he's also the Prophet sly Sam's brother through breastfeeding. Okay, so there's a close relationship between Abou selama and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam even prior to Islam. And this is important to note as well. When did Abu salah and Osama become Muslim Abu Salah is considered amongst the earliest converts to Islam he accepted Islam alongside a lot of come even a

00:07:19--> 00:08:02

bit outcome and obey didn't inherit before the days of that outcome even started so that's that's one of the markers of how early people came into Islam. If they came into Islam before the prophets lie, some even started to gather the companions in the house of an outcome outcome then that is a sign that they are from the first batch the first handful of people to accept the Sunnah. And so some of the narrations they put Abou selama as the 11th person to accept Islam, that's how early they put him out of the hotel. And of course, own sedima well the Allahu taala and her being his wife they put her as the 14th or 15th person to accept Islam so Abu Salah accepted Islam before m

00:08:02--> 00:08:45

selam they were already married, Abu Salim accepted Islam and then shortly afterwards, his wife on selama would accept Islam May Allah subhana wa tada be pleased with them both. Now we don't know much about own Salaam or Abu Salah prior to Islam except for the circumstances that they were born in, except for their lineage except for their family relationships. We don't know the story of own Selma accepting Islam herself or coming to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. However, what we do know is that these two people Solomon and Selma, were amongst the few and are considered to be the first to make the three visit us. Now you might be wondering, where are the 300 us coming from we talked

00:08:45--> 00:09:27

about to his was there were two headress to Abyssinia. Okay, two migrations to avicennia. And then of course, the migration to Medina, Abu salah and M selama. Were amongst the first to migrate and they are considered actually the first family to go to Habesha to go to Ibis, India. And the second migration to Abyssinia is when the rumor had spread through Abyssinia that Quraysh had embraced Islam. They came back to Mecca. When they realized that was not not true. They went back to Abyssinia Okay, so they made to hingeless to Abyssinia and as they as they came to Mecca, one of the things that's narratives that they were actually the guests of herbal thought of when they would

00:09:27--> 00:10:00

come to Mecca. So that's how close they are to the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and of course a lot of that is through the mother of Abu Salah. But a lot of dimopoulos being from that family. So anyway, they they're amongst those that made the headlock twice to Abyssinia and then made his way to Medina. And so they're noted as the first to make the three heads at us. They served again, you know, or they stayed in the house of herbal pilot. And most of the narrations about Abyssinia are actually through home cinema. So almost everything

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

thing we know about Anna joshy. The story of Jaffa Have you thought about the low tide and who's speaking to an agenda, the story of the two armies that we talked about last week and there's a battle the Aloha and who being sent out swimming in the Nile to find out what had happened. All of that is narrated through unsentimental the lohana so imagine what this woman has seen, right? So how a lot if she did not narrate to us the stories about avicennia then last week's lecture, we probably would have had, you know, very little of that information. So how much history is preserved through her eyes through that migration to Abyssinia. Just like Jaffa with the low tide, and a smart

00:10:41--> 00:11:28

interface, they had their child in avicennia. So selama who is the son of I'm Solomon abou Selma, Selma was actually born in kenya born in this community in exile. So anyway, as they are there in Abyssinia, and narrating what has happened of the glorious history that we took from Jaffa and from an A joshy, and all of those incredible stories that took place there in Abyssinia what what makes own selama most famous, or what makes her story The most famous outside of her marriage to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is what happens after they come back. Okay, after they come back. So they're in Kenya, they already came back when they heard that grace had accepted Islam and that

00:11:28--> 00:12:09

was a false rumor. They went back to Abyssinia. They were amongst those that were close to an A joshy she narrates all that happened in Abyssinia and then they come to Mecca, as they hear that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is about to make the higit to El Medina. Now some people made hige directly from avicennia to Medina, so they're coming to Mecca, and they're going to prepare themselves to accompany the Prophet sallallahu wasallam on his journey, as he makes his way to El Medina. So they come back to Mecca, Abu Salah, on Salah, and now their child selama. And they're staying in the house of herbal pileup, they prepare their luggage, they prepare everything that

00:12:09--> 00:12:56

they're going to take with them. They set out to leave as a family and support a lot as these three people are together. All three of them are about to witness something that you know that that's going to take them apart from each other abou sediment on sediment their child are heading out and then benromach zone comes and they intercept the the the amount of sediment on Selma and the child and all that they have with them. And they bring with them archers and they bring swords, and then almost zoom, the family of Amsterdam in particular they say that listen. Abu Salah is a crazy man, and he can do whatever he wants to do. But on Salama, she's one of us. She's from our family. So she

00:12:56--> 00:13:37

and her son have to stay with us. So they basically said Abu Salah, even though again, he's related to them, he's from the same tribe, but own cinemas, direct relatives own cinema is closer, and that she is the daughter of the chief, right the former chief of this tribe, and she's the first cousin of Abuja, Helen Khalid, they say, look, I will sell him I can go, we don't care about him, but the woman and the child will stay. And this is of course, part of the psychological torture as well of the early Muslims. Right? So family separation, that's going to take place here. So this whole scuffle arises, they're pulling them apart from one another, and they forcibly separate Abu Salah

00:13:37--> 00:14:24

from his wife and his son. They sent up with Solomon on his way to Medina. Okay, so they fight Abu Salah away from home, Solomon, the child, they take on Solomon the child away, and Abu Salah is sent on his way to Medina by himself. So now Subhana Allah, this family that has been together from before Islam, on two migrations to Abyssinia of the settlement on Selma are separated and Selma has her child, and she has her child, she's crying, she's weeping as a result of what had just taken place, with her husband being taken away from her. To make matters worse, the family of Abu sedima here's what happens. And this is not about Islam or any religious conviction. This is now about

00:14:24--> 00:15:00

pride about family pride and ego. So they come to the house of ohm selama, who's now with her relatives with Selma, her child, and they say, Listen, you want to play that game on Selma is yours none, but the child is to be ascribed to his father. So because of who Selma is from us, the child belongs to us. And so another fight ensues. And on Selamat er the Allahu taala Anna was still breastfeeding her child sanoma he's still a baby, okay, and they are pulling him away. You can imagine the scene. They're trying

00:15:00--> 00:15:50

To pull him away from Selma, she is screaming holding onto her child. And so Pamela as they were pulling Selma the baby away, they pulled him away so aggressively that they dislocated his shoulders. And this completely broke on Selma about the lowdown on her. Can you imagine how a lot the difficulty that she is facing, right that she is in the situation where, you know, she she does not have her husband or her child now. So anyway, some time goes on. And on Selma, while the other hotel Anna is, is crying every single day, crying every single day, she would go out actually towards the cabinet every day and she would weep. And as she would weep, she would retell the

00:15:50--> 00:16:35

stories of her husband being taken away from her and her child being taken away from her, the separation that took place, and she would cry to Allah subhanho wa Taala. She would curse those that broke up her family. And she would ask Allah subhana wa Taala for a way out. Now this is really something to imagine in terms of the growth of character and spirituality. Can you imagine on Selma doing this for an entire year, this was not just a month, this is not a few weeks, this separation took place for an entire year. Okay, so she's going towards the Kappa, she is crying out. Eventually, they bring her back her child. All right, the family feels bad for her, they bring her

00:16:35--> 00:16:46

back her child, but she doesn't just want her child. She wants her husband as well. So it actually shows that as time goes on some of the relatives of Osama

00:16:47--> 00:17:33

they they said look, you know, what is what harm is it going to do to you if you let her go? Right at this point, her husband is gone. You know, what harm is it going to do? To let her go? Why are you holding her captive? Let the poor woman join her family. So the family of Molina they say listen, just just go ahead and let her go. So finally, as this time goes on, she's told that she can go and she can be with her husband. She been I said, gives her her baby back. So she now has her child back and she's told you're free to go with your husband. So she makes her way, you know, to pack her bags. She doesn't ask for anyone to escort her to Medina. by herself. She takes her baby

00:17:33--> 00:18:13

now who she's been separated from all of this time. She mounts her baby and she starts to make her way out towards Medina all by herself, all by herself. All she has is her camel and her baby. This is an extremely dangerous situation, especially in the hostility that took place at the time, right she could be overtaken by highway robbers, her baby could die along the way she could get lost. This is not an easy journey for her to make. But she just wants to be with her husband and she wants to join the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and the companions in Mecca in Medina as she had initially planned. So I'm setting the alarm on her. She tells the story. She says I took my camel, I put my

00:18:13--> 00:18:57

son on the back, my baby on the back. And I set out for Medina and I had no one with me. I wasn't thinking about the circumstances of this travel. She just wanted her family back, right. So she said I got all the way out to 1018, which is about five miles outside of Mecca. 10am, of course is where most of it is where you make the where there's a new thoughts for the people of Mecca, where you go out and you you know you can do a head on and proclaim your intention for Ramadan. So she said I made it a few miles out of Mecca, I made it to 2018. And I had my baby. And there was a man by the name of Earth, not even Paul Ha. And he was on his way back from a journey. Now Earth might have

00:18:57--> 00:19:39

been thought was a noble men, but he wasn't a Muslim. And he was so noble that he was the one that was in charge of the keys of the cabinet. So you remember the story of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam prior to Islam and the people fighting over who's going to place the black stone and the different claims that are being made by tribes to the cabinet it's not even thought of is the one who actually carries the keys to the Kappa. So he's an honorable man. He wasn't yet Muslim. At this point. He would become Muslim later on, by the way. And he sees this woman and her baby all by themselves, you know, on a camel making their way out to Medina. So he comes to on Sonoma or the

00:19:39--> 00:20:00

Allahu taala. And he says to her, I'm Selma, where are you going? And she said, I'm going to Medina to be with my husband. And he says, Don't you have anyone with you? She says, I have no one but Allah subhanho wa Taala and this child of mine, that's all I have is the baby and I have a loss of Hannah Horta. So he says by Allah you will not be left alone. I'm not gonna let you do this alone. He said what kind of

00:20:00--> 00:20:44

Would I be to let you go out and do this alone? So or if not a lot, the Allahu taala. And he held my camel on Selim as the one telling the story, he held my camel. And he set off on this journey with me. She says, well, llahi I have never seen anyone from the club that was as noble as this man. He would not look at me, he would not talk to me, the way he maintained his nobility somehow Look how, look how. Look how honorable this man is. He's not even Muslim. He doesn't believe in the mission that's causing her to go out. But even though he is all alone, and he's the one that's taking this on, he takes on sentimental the long time and she says that whenever we would get to a stop, he

00:20:44--> 00:21:25

would he kept his eyesight in front of him, he never looked back. He would cause the camel to kneel. And then he would go far away. Okay, he'd go far away. He gives me my time to do whatever I had to do. And then after he would, he would, you know, tie the camel. You know, leave it there, he would go and he would rust far away from me. Okay, then he would come back. And he would again maintain his gaze away from me. And he had told me he would tell me that I could mount the camel. He would set the Camel Up and then he would stand far away to let me mount the camel. He'd come back and then after I was settled on the camel, he would continue to hold on to the brutal of the camel until we

00:21:25--> 00:22:06

reached our next stop. He kept on doing this all the way until we reach to the outskirts of Medina. And by the way, notice that Earth anomaly Allahu taala and hope in this situation Earth man does not have a camel himself. He did this by foot. He made the entire journey from Mecca to Medina by foot for a woman that was not his relative for a mission that he did not yet believe in. But his nobility, the good character, the honor that he had, which would eventually lead him to embrace the slump caused him to do what he did. And I'm Southern hold the Allahu taala. And he says, We're going he continues to walk in front of me. So that's the camel aside, he continues doing this for however

00:22:06--> 00:22:50

long the journey took. And we know that it was a journey of at least a few weeks, until we reached to go back, which is the outskirts of course of Medina. And he pointed to the the village of the family of Amitabh nurofen about he said your husband should be there may Allah subhanaw taala be with you as you continue forward. And so I took my camel and selama the baby to Oba this noble man simply turned around and went back to Mecca again by foot. What an incredible human being he is. So Pamela what an incredible human being is, what a noble man he is. He walked both ways. And he did not even go to Abu selama and say, Alright, you can pay me now I brought your wife and I brought

00:22:50--> 00:22:52

your baby by foot from Mecca.

00:22:53--> 00:23:32

Can you pay me some money? Are you going to give me something back? Can you at least give me a camel or a horse to go back he did it all out of his sense of nobility and his sense of duty to onsala about the allowance and her seeing this woman alone that was going to take her child contrast this by the way to the people that separated the family out of arrogance, right and ego into into torture them and separated first wife from her husband, then a child from both of their parents. And this man who is also not Muslim, but who had the noble qualities that would eventually lead him to Islam, walking back and forth without asking anything in return. May Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with

00:23:32--> 00:24:09

him. So I'm Selma Hello the Allahu taala on how went forward. And indeed Abu Salah was there. Now I want to I want to actually fast forward just quickly before we get back to the rest of this story of of settlement, Abu selama being reunited, what happened with Manuel de la tada I know it's not an apology that would accept Islam years later. And I want you to think of the scene now of the prophets, Allah lahardee who was sent him and fed to Mecca and the conquest of Mecca. Remember the people used to fight over the sides of the Kaaba, they fought over who who's going to put the black stone of course as we said the prophets Isom solved that when the prophets lie, some of them came

00:24:09--> 00:24:48

back to Mecca and Mecca. The keys of the Kaaba were given to him. The expectation was that bento Hashem the tribe of the prophets lie Selim would naturally hold on to the keys of the Kappa. So, a bustle the long time and who of course, was a wealthy man, a powerful man, a noble man, I bustle the a lot of time and who says to the Prophet sighs I'm Yabba Sula. Let us hold on to these keys. The profit slice on them is standing in front of the cabinet. And the people are all surrounding the profit slice and I'm waiting to see what he's going to do the profit size M says Where's Earth not have been thought. Whereas Earth might have been thought, or it's not even thought how it comes

00:24:48--> 00:25:00

forth. The Prophet slicin puts the keys in his hands and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says that the keys of the Kaaba are to stay with him. And not just him, but only his descendant

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

Only his descendants are to hold on to these keys and the prophets lie. Some said only a lot of them only an oppressor will take these keys away from you. And so panela until today, the keys of the Kaaba have passed down from Earth, none of them fall to his next generation to the next generation to the next generation to where his descendants are the only people that are allowed to hold on to the keys of the cabin, and to open it No one can take the keys away from the descendants of Earth manaman palha, at the order of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So, this shows you you know, this dimension of the profit slice and as well where the prophets lie, some is acting upon the sense of

00:25:39--> 00:26:19

nobility being tied to character, not nobility being tied to lineage or to tribe, right, completely undoing the hierarchy that existed at the time of the Prophet slice lm that gave superiority to people based upon tribe. The prophets lie Selim is honoring an honorable man here until some had a lot our times till now, this man is still honored by that action. And of course Earth man even Paul had did not ask the prophets lie some for any payment on that day when he brought him selama forward. But look how Allah subhanaw taala repaid him so I know we're going to talk about selama and how Allah repaid her look how Allah repaid this man who did not ask the prophets lie Selim for any

00:26:19--> 00:27:03

coins or for any payments. When he brought them settlement to Medina, Alonzo jail, paid him back with something even far greater than that. So finally now, we're back in Medina, on selama are the allowed and her finds her husband indeed in the place of ambit of neuro where we're Earth man and thought had told her that he would be in Cuba and this family will now stay together in an Medina and the companionship of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and they will go on to have more children. Some narrations which are which seemed to be more correct. Suggest three more children, Some suggest even five more children, giving them either four children or six children in total because as we

00:27:03--> 00:27:46

said selama was born in Abyssinia so then they have doula who has a daughter Alma and Zane up. Okay, so selama Dora armour and Xena and some mentioned to other children Mohammed didn't consume, but it seems more correct to say that they had four in total that were that were born to them three, immediately one after the other in Medina, literally every year there was a child that was born to Abu Salah, and I'm sedima May Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with them and the whole family. Abu Salah is a close Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he accompanies the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in better so he is a person who made the three hits was and then he

00:27:46--> 00:28:28

fought embedder. So he has the noble title of being amongst the people of benefit of the veterans of beddit, who of course, hold a lofty position in Islam. He then accompanies the Prophet sallallahu it was settlement, and he fights alongside the prophets lie some bravely and hurt and he is wounded and hurt, and the wounds and hurt would eventually cause him to pass away. Okay, so it would be months later, but the wounds that he that he takes an Earth would eventually be the wounds that would reopen or the sickness or the infection that comes as a result of those wounds would be the wounds that Selma would pass away from. But until that time, for three years, you have a blue Selma on

00:28:28--> 00:28:50

Selma on Selma gets pregnant every year a new child is brought into Medina, Abu Salah, a brother of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one of the most beloved companions to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he comes home from the companionship of the Prophet slicin on one day, and he's full of joy. And onselen model the Allahu taala and he

00:28:52--> 00:29:35

gives us this narration she says Abu Salah came home so happy and he said to Osama I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say something today. I have William and Catherine McKenna was more beloved to me than this and that it's the most beloved thing to me to hear what an amazing thing I heard from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam today suddenly said What is it? He says I heard the Prophet sallallahu wasallam say that whoever says at the moment of calamity in that Illa he were in a layer on your own a lot of my journey female sleep It was lovely hiren minha very famous drop in Allah when Allah Raja rune allama Gemini female see Betty was lovely Hiram in her. That of course

00:29:35--> 00:29:45

to allow we belong unto Allah we return Oh Allah, compensate me for my my tragedy and give me better than that which was taken away from me.

00:29:46--> 00:30:00

A lot compensate me for my tragedy, and give me better than that which was taken away from me. Abou selama said I heard the profit slice and I'm say, whoever says this at the moment of calamity will be given something

00:30:00--> 00:30:20

Better by Allah subhanho wa Taala Abou selama has no idea at the time that he is giving on Selma, the drought that she will make when he dies. So Pamela he's narrating it from the prophets lie Selim and he is the one in complete joy and happiness because this is an amazing new app that the Prophet slicin is teaching the companions here.

00:30:21--> 00:31:06

Sometime after that, as we said, above, Selma was wounded and hurt. After hurt. He struggled with those wounds, he tried to fight through them, his sickness was on and off. He even in fact, went on another expedition according to some narrations, and his wounds were reopened, and eventually he would succumb to those wounds months, months after, or hurt up to six months after the Battle of hurt. And I'm selling out of the hotel and her narrates the incident that takes place there. She says a little a little less Allah lahardee wisdom came to our home and some of the relatives of Abu selama were surrounding him in his bed. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam stood on top of Abu

00:31:06--> 00:31:21

Salah, and of course, this is a dear companion to the Prophet slicin them and the relatives are surrounding the bed of Abu Salah. And Abu Salah is looking up. And as you see with some people when they pass away,

00:31:22--> 00:32:11

suddenly his sight became fixed. Okay, so he was looking up. He was breathing hard all the time. I know. He was trying to overcome his wounds he was not able to, and his sight became fixed. And he stopped breathing. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he took his two noble fingers it his Salatu was Salam. And he closed the eyes of his beloved companion, Abu Salah, and he said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that when the body passes away when the when the person passes away, the soul follows the sight. Okay, if you remember in the angels series, we actually talked about this narration the soul Follows the Person sight. So the rule had come out of the body of Abu Salah, or

00:32:11--> 00:32:50

the Allahu Tana Einhorn when the Prophet slicin closed his eyes and he said that the family of Abu Salah started to weep heavily, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said alerted the Rwanda unphysical Milla behaved don't supplicate to Allah subhanho wa Taala anything except that which is good for you. Because the angels say mean to whatever you say, the angels are going to say I mean to whatever you say so make sure that you're out that you're going to make right now at the time of death of your loved one who was a Shaheed who is a person who made three hits us who is the 11th person to accept Islam who is the brother of the Prophet slicin I'm one of the greatest companions a

00:32:50--> 00:32:52

bedri and a Shaheed

00:32:53--> 00:33:37

don't say anything right now except for good because the angels are going to say mean and the Prophet sallallahu it who was sudden then made the do app for Abu Salah Allah Thirdly, a be setting selama waterfed della Jetta COVID-19 washed Allah who feed Cobra he whenever he was low for fear activity, he said so the law he was setting ALLAH forgive, I will set him raise his status amongst your rightly guided servants, make his grave spacious, fill it with light and be his successor and taking care of those who he has left behind and make them amongst the pious. This Hadeeth is in Sahih Muslim. The death of Abu Salah radi Allahu Allah and the Prophet slicin him then took the body

00:33:37--> 00:34:12

of Selma. They washed the body of Abu salah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam led the Dinas of Abu Salah with nine tech rewrites and I know that sounds strange to a lot of people but it is authentically narrated. The prophets lie some led the janazah of Abu Salah with nine tech rewrites and this is something that is also narrated for some of the other show had that something special that the prophets lie Selim did, for some of the show had that what did the prophets lie Some say between nine tech lead author instead of the four that we that we say? Allah knows best? I don't think it's authentically narrated anywhere what the prophets I said behind between the

00:34:12--> 00:34:56

different tech bit off the nine tech bit odd However, this was a special distinction and an honor that the profit slice and M gives for a while selama all the time on him as he leads his janazah. So now once again, on selama is separated from her husband, but this time it's death. Right? And she has Selma who was a young child when she came to Medina. And then she has three children, right? Presumably, we're talking about, you know, a three year old, a two year old, a one year old when you're looking at the timeline. Okay, so she literally has this, this group of young children have small children, that her widow with her at that point, cinema has grown a bit older. He's the only

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

one that's a bit older than the rest of the children and

00:35:00--> 00:35:37

As soon as she heard that Selma had passed away, well, she's witnessing this moment of the death of Selma. She said, I remembered what he told me, what he narrated from the Prophet slice of them so, so panela the man who is dead in front of them, narrated from the prophets, I send them to her, the devout to be said at the time of and we'll see about the time of tragedy. So at that time, she said, I remembered the darat that was Selma taught me at that moment so I said in alila he went on your own along the journey female sleep it was the height a min

00:35:38--> 00:36:20

Oh Allah compensate me for my tragedy and grant me better than that which was taken away from me. And she said that after I made that out, though, I thought to myself, who better than Abu Salah there is no one better than Osama right? I mean, this is a noble man, a noble companion, a great human being a person was a great Muslim, a person of great character, a person who loved his wife who loved his family. She's like, who is better than abou cinema, even though she made the as she was instructed to, she thought to herself, who is better than I was Selma. She says some in the call to her, I said it, she said for us love Allahu Li pasilla la sala lo and he was sermon a lot and he

00:36:20--> 00:37:03

gave me better. He gave me the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, this was not an immediate response to the darat. And that's something that happened immediately after the death of Selma. I'm sentimental. The Allahu taala on her has four children. She is a woman that has been through a lot, right? I mean, the pain of being by herself and separated from her husband and her child in Mecca, amongst people that rejected Alon His Messenger slice them and held her captive. That pain is still there. She's been through a lot, right? And she has four children. And who comes to her elbow back, it'll be a lot and who comes to her and proposes to her, but guess what, she

00:37:03--> 00:37:47

turns it down. All modafinil hop over to the hotel and who comes to her and proposes to her, she turns down his proposal to, to her no one, no one from the companions is equal to Abu Salah, or the Allahu taala. No, right. She loves him too much and she's seen so much of him. But then the proposal comes to her Of course, from the one man who is indisputably better than Abu Salah. You know, she could argue that no, no one else was better than I was. But she can't say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not better than Abu Salah. So she says, it was sort of Lhasa la vida, he was Selim sent to me how to be better to propose on his behalf. So I said, I said to him, I

00:37:47--> 00:38:04

said, Listen, now obviously she was she was blown away by the proposal of the prophets, I send them but she said to, to the profit slice. I'm in response. She said that I have three issues, though. She said number one, I'm an extremely jealous person.

00:38:05--> 00:38:29

Even though polygamy was the norm at the time, she's not used to that she's never been in a polygamous situation. She is, you know, she doesn't know how to deal with the situation. She says, Look, I'm a very jealous person. So that's my first issue. She said, the second thing is I'm not that young. I'm an old woman. Now, obviously, she's not very elderly. Right? Because she's still at the age where she was able to bear children.

00:38:30--> 00:39:12

You know, so she's not that old. But she says that, you know, I'm not I'm not a young woman. I'm an old woman. And she said, The third thing is that I have children to care for. So I have three issues. I'm jealous, extremely jealous. I am elderly. And I have children that I have to take care of. I have four children that come with me as well. So download the profit slice on responds. And he says, As for her Lila, she says under law, and yet have a bill later I asked a loss I'll make up for a loss panel data to do away with your real or to help you through that jealousy and you should just pray to a loss printer to help you through the jealousy that will come. prophets Isom says as for

00:39:12--> 00:39:54

your age, you and I have the same condition. We're both we both have age as an issue, right? So it's not like I'm young also. Right? So we're both advanced in our age in that sense. And then the prophets like Selim says, And as for your family, they are my family. This is beautiful as for your family, they will be my family. Your family will not be treated any differently as they come into the household of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and so Indeed, Allah subhana wa tada answered her do at and granted her better than Abou selama, who was very hard to tough, right, but he can only be topped by the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself. The prophets

00:39:54--> 00:40:00

lie Selim marries her, and I'm not going to talk too much right now about what happens next.

00:40:00--> 00:40:41

I'm just going to give one incident that speaks to the last part of what the prophets lie Some said to her, about her family being like the family of the Prophet slice them or being indeed the family of the Prophet size in them. zeyneb the daughter of selama is going to play a very special role in the life of the Prophet slice alum. zeyneb is going to become a close daughter to the prophets lie Selim and someone whose legacy is an extension of the legacy of Uppsala model de la Arnhem. We'll talk a bit about that. Next week, bitten and tada but this is this is not just lip service that the Prophet sly son was paying to Selma. There's an incident that took place where the profit slice alum

00:40:41--> 00:41:20

saw and Hasson will Hussein and Fatima May Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with them all his family and the prophets license embraced all of them as we said, when we talked about faulty model the Allah who hasn't seen how beloved they were to the Prophet sighs um, he used to put them under his cloak it his thoughts was Sam Houston embrace his children and his grandchildren. sallallahu wasallam he loved them. And as he embraced them, he said he recited the I moved to LA he was about a cow to who I'm a little beat in the whole hamidou Majeed, I have from Surah Hood, made the mercy of a loss of Hannah Montana and the blessings of Allah be upon you, oh, people of the household. Okay.

00:41:20--> 00:42:02

Now this is referring to and Surah Hood Of course, Ibrahim is none but the prophets like some is using the same thing to refer to his household, Addy, Mohammed like algebra him in this sense. So he's embracing Fatima and haselwood. Hussein. And he, he says these words, when he says that I'm sedima is witnessing that I'm suddenly started to cry. The prophets lie Selim says to her young Selma, why are you crying? And she said to the prophets lie, some you left me and Zane about, you left me and my daughter out. So the profit slice of them then includes them. And he says, empty, what not Toki mean elevate, you and your daughter are from elevate, you and your daughter are from

00:42:02--> 00:42:39

my family, you are from the people of the household as well. So you see the profit slice and I'm making it a point to include them, and to treat them like his own Salalah Harney with some of the children of Selma, and we will see that with Xena, or the Allahu anhu, which we'll talk about in sha Allah a bit next week. Two quick notes in Chatelet Allah as we end this lecture, and then we'll talk about the legacy of M selama. In knowledge and her companionship with the prophets like Selim, one of them is that some of the scholars point to the marriage of the prophets license on selama. While the Aloha as being the first thing that really opened the heart of highly divinity to Islam, well,

00:42:39--> 00:43:19

the Aloha no because remember, how did was the cousin of unsettlement and very close to that family that is his family. So when you heard that the Prophet slice I'm married her, this this noble woman from benrahma, whom his cousin, then that was something that softened his heart towards the prophets lie Selim. And lastly, if you remember the story of Jaffa, Ali and Zaid all wanting to take care of mama the daughter of Hamza may Allah be pleased with them all. If you remember when Hamza Lilo on who was martyred and you had the the argument if you will, that took place between zaid ali and Jaffa about who would take who would take care of the the daughter of Hamza or mama while the Allahu

00:43:19--> 00:44:00

taala Anna, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would marry or mama been temza, who, of course was taken by Jaffa would marry her to Selma, or the Allahu taala. And who, the daughter the son of sediment on cinema so Selma, who was born in avicennia, okay, just think about the way that it all worked out then selama, who was born in Abyssinia would then marry or Mama, the daughter of Hamza, who was being raised in the house of Jaffa from Abyssinia. Okay, and this was a marriage that would take place in the lifetime of the prophets like Selim, he himself arranging and it is salatu salam between selama and amama. May Allah subhanho wa Taala be pleased with them all all of the companions

00:44:00--> 00:44:23

and have mercy upon them and gather us with them along I mean, a lot so just give us always better than that which is taken away from us in this world and give us the companionship of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam agenda to fit a dose as we did not have the opportunity to accompany him in this world. Allahumma amin was sallallahu wasallam and Baraka, Nabina Muhammad, why not only he will still be nameless and he can walk into law he will not account
