will ask him in a minute Shakeology mismarked mental him and him did he know he Ramadan I mean, whatever one Ihlara by the mean will allow people to limit certain Allahumma salli wa salam abiotic and avocado so they can Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam. While early he was like he was setting them to see him and cathedra so inshallah Tada tonight we will be continuing with the poets of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and we will be covering the second poet of the prophets lie Selim, who's famous for his story of repentance. But just as I said, it's important to inshallah try to have this insight into what it looked like when you came into Medina, the man that we're speaking

00:00:39--> 00:01:20

about capitalism and radical the a lot of times and who was one of those Sahaba that lived a very, very long life, and who many people became taboo in because of, who many narrated from and you could often see him walking around the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his old age with one of his sons, taking him around because he was blind. So he's one of those companions that lived a long life and lived a significant amount of his life blind, and whose sons would take him around the message of the Prophet salallahu Salam, where people would come to meet him, and would come to ask him about his history with the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam, and what he witnessed

00:01:20--> 00:01:56

of those glorious days in El Medina. So we start off once again with the reminder that amendment city and Rahim Allah says can assure Allah rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a thorough that there were three poets of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, Abdullah and Ottawa huddled the Allahu Taala and what has signed the Busaba to the Allahu Anhu were carob nomadic Radi Allahu Taala Khabib nomadic has a lot of characters in his in his long name. So he's himself Khabib nautical the Allahu Taala and who the son of Malik be carob attain.

00:01:57--> 00:02:32

Both of his parents passed away before Islam had reached him or reached el Medina. He had two brothers, son and Abdullah. So there's cabling nomadic saheliyon or Abdillah and Abdullah of nomadic, both of whom also accepted Islam and became companions through cabinet nomadic. So again, three brothers, Katib nomadic Sahan and Abdullah, all who became companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he had at least 11 children. He was married five times, obviously not all at the same time

00:02:33--> 00:03:15

and had over 11 children. The most famous of his children was Abdullah newcath, who became a famous Hadith narrator. So out of his 11 children that we know of one of his children, Abdullah became became one of the more famous Hadith narrators who narrated from his father as well as for many of the other companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now capital medical, the Allah Tada and who, what makes him have the blessing? First and foremost is that he's one of the first people to embrace Islam from Medina. And like Abdullah Abdullah, he's one of those who actually went to Baotou, the October the second treaty of Acaba in Makkah and took the pledge with the Prophet

00:03:15--> 00:03:53

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so he's from the first batch of Muslims from El Medina, and someone who is also a famous poets, a famous writer, and also a warrior from El Medina. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Paris him off with Zubayr even awam Radi Allahu Taala and there's one narration that says tell huddled the Allahu Anhu but the more correct one appears to be that he was the brother of as available the Allahu Anhu which tells you a lot right as obeyed and Paul has of course, our most famous for being who to the prophets lie some know. What are they to the prophets lie some Does anyone remember from hennas away?

00:03:55--> 00:04:36

What are they? His neighbors in Jana? Okay, Paul, Hannah's Zubayr are the two neighbors of the prophets lie Selim in Al Jana Tala was aware Jeremiah will Jana, as is where is the disciple of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Nikolina Vivian howry, every prophet had a disciple and my disciple was or is as innovative and olam Radi Allahu Taala animal so when the Prophet slice and chooses you to be the host of a person, like as a debate that shows the position that this man has immediately in the sight of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now he's going to go on to participate in every major battle alongside the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam except for two,

00:04:37--> 00:05:00

the most famous one being taboo book, which is literally the bulk of his biography. Okay, so 75% of his biography is this one narration of taboo, and he missed her book, and the other one is Budish he missed better and he says, about better that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not admonished people for missing brother because better wasn't

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

As opposed to become a battle, remember it was simply the Muslims trying to intercept the caravans and get back their stolen stuff. So beddin was not intended to be this huge battle that it became. But Allah bless those who served alongside the prophets lie said I'm in the Battle of bed that and of course, the bed reunion. The people of better are the veterans of Islam. So he missed better, and he missed Tabuk but he caught every other battle alongside the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then I heard in particular, he was one of those who not only did not flee from the Prophet sallallahu it was sunnah, but one of those who was wounded heavily alongside the messenger

00:05:41--> 00:05:52

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And there are a few narrations about orphans one of them is this narration of him and as the wave of the Allahu Taala animal and the narration is that

00:05:53--> 00:06:37

one capital the Allahu Anhu sustained multiple wounds and as the weight of the Allahu Anhu also sustained multiple wounds, you could see as available the Allah Tala Anhu picking up cat and trying to keep him going and kept supporting him. So as Aveda was leading him in the Battle of abode, and capital the Allahu Anhu was with him. And they were so close, and of course also brothers in in the pact between the people of Mecca and the people of Medina, the muhajir, in the unsought that Zubayr was going to inherit Caberg nomadic had he died that day, and that's why they say Allah subhana wa Tada revealed verse 85, and sorbitol and thought, were all our homies Barranco whom Ella rebond,

00:06:37--> 00:06:40

Vicki tabula and the people of

00:06:41--> 00:07:21

your family members have greater rights in the book of Allah Subhana Allah to Adam because they were closer than brothers. And this was of course, just the understanding as they were going into it, that inheritance would have transferred to activate all the Allahu Taala and who had Khabib know Malik passed away on that day. There's also a narration from cabinet in the monocle. The Allah I know that he had a distinct honor on that day with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says about himself. He says LaMancha Schaffner Yama come to a woman out of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was shocked to be healed, meaning highly and Serbian. He said that when we became you

00:07:21--> 00:07:58

know, exposed and or heard or when we were hit and or hurt from the back. Obviously, we all know the story of a hurt when hired are the law and who took the opposing army from the back and they started to attack the Muslims. He said I was the first person to see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and to give the glad tidings of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as well being so I was the one who caught sight of the prophets lie Selim, and who let the Companions know because the morale was very low on the basis of what they thought the prophets lie, some died. And the enemies of the Muslims were playing this trick of saying that we killed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam to demoralize

00:07:58--> 00:08:38

the Muslims, and to get the Muslims to stop fighting. So he says I was the first person to see the prophets lie Selim and to assure that he was alive, and then to let the Muslims know that he was still alive. So Allahu Allahu wa salam, and then he goes to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he took he swapped armor with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, this is an act of bravery and courage. he swapped his armor with the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam, and that, of course, caused much of the opposing army to come towards him. I mean, that's more bravery and sacrifice than you can think of, you know, from from any human beings. Subhan Allah that not only does he stick

00:08:38--> 00:09:22

with the Prophets lie Selim, but he swaps armor with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and goes to the other side of the battlefield, taking a group with him and they continue to fight with him on that day. For Katella Yama, it didn't detail and studied and hat jury Sebata Ashura, Georgia. And so he was wounded on the day of hurt with 17 significant wounds. Obviously, in His act of bravery, His act of courage and being with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on that day, so he missed better. But on our heads, not only did he catch our heads, but he is the only person that we know of that carried out this act of actually swapping armor with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:09:22--> 00:09:59

wasallam. And, in the process, incurring a significant amount of damage himself until the Allahu Anhu. But of course, he survived. And as the Badal, the Allahu Anhu also survived upon handle, the Allahu Anhu also survived. And of course, the prophets lie, some survived. So he's that person that is demonstrating His love for the Prophet slice and I'm in the most difficult moments. And this is important to the lead up of Tabuk. So you can understand why the prophets lifetime was so disappointed that he wasn't there. Right. I mean, that's you're showing an overt that's a that's a showing that isn't matched, right that goes down in the books and

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

You are likely a person who will never have another stain on his reputation right after you carry out an act like that of bravery and courage, being with the profit slice of them, and being willing to incur that type of damage on his behalf it his Salatu was Salam. Now his poetry was war poetry. As I said, the three poets of the prophets license each had a genre. And I found a more specific saying that we've been studying Mahima Allah. He says, I'm a cabin for Cana yet curule help wire code for alna whenever I knew what I had done to whom he said that as for carob, his poetry was war poetry, it was poetry, of strength and courage. And he would say we did and we shall do, and he

00:10:44--> 00:11:23

would basically threaten the opposing army, he would warn the opposing army, one of the sayings, or the Yomi better than Hanaa to him, how would you help them who technically were an ally Mohammadu and on the day is better when their faces were humiliated? Djibouti and Sudan was under our banner and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, something that's traced back to capital de la I know so he said, cab kind of had that poetry, where he talked about the strength of the army and and talk down the other army. He says, I'm Matt Hassan. For Kenny ethical real the home. As for Hassan, he used to mention their faults, Hassan's poetry was really mean, as you'll see next week. It wasn't very nice

00:11:23--> 00:12:00

poetry in the sense that he really diced up those people that would insult the Prophet slice them with poetry that really took them apart and that was his specialty. Right? It was this poetry putting people down and that has a function in Islam as well. Okay, that has a function in Islam as well. So putting them down with their own rhetoric with their own flaws, and humiliating them when they tried to humiliate the prophets lie Selim in the latest ones. And he says what unmap Muralla halfa Canada euro euro home will call for he said as we're going to LA he was the one where the Aloha and who used to speak about their disbelief and speak about the superiority of belief to

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

disbelief so they each have their lane, and their genre of poetry. And he said, What? s&m Adilson Dosen Farrakhan min baiting Carla who cared. He said that dose the remaining holdouts of dose, they heard the poetry of capital the Allahu Anhu. And they embraced, they embraced Islam they came forth and they put down their arms and they embraced Islam because of the strength of his poetry before anything even broke out. Between them. So the confidence of capital the Allahu Anhu when they heard his voice as they're about to go into battle, they heard that confidence and that was inspiring to them, of course causes fear and inspires them

00:12:40--> 00:13:21

to not go forth in their ways. And he said, know how you will have nataka la palette karate ruhuna Delson, lcpufa these are hard lines to translate know how you do her you know how you receive will give our swords the choice, and they will take if they could speak they would either take on DOS or thief like it doesn't matter to us who's on the other side. We're going forward and if it's an eternal human Allah was saying that dose heard the confidence and the strength and the voice of capital the Allahu Taala animal and that was enough for them. The Prophet slice and I'm also praised his poetry on a very specific occasion in a beautiful way. Well, sulla sigh some sense Academy

00:13:21--> 00:13:36

melodical the Allahu Anhu he said man ser Abu Khaliq one can or Buka NESEA Beighton culture who Manas era boo Khaliq means your Lord has not forgotten this for you. And your Lord is not forgetful.

00:13:37--> 00:14:17

These words that you said this poem that you want set. So what does that mean? Basically, Allah has written down the reward of that poem that you want said and Allah does not forget anything good that you do. So these good words that you said so that's pretty amazing. The prophets like someone saying Allah remembers the words that you have said one day, and Allah has written them down for you. So he said, not what he said. What are those words yellows, little lot? The prophets lie some turn to aboubaker Well, the Allahu Tada I know when he said and said who? Yeah Abubaker say the words of a record. So we're back here with the Allahu Anhu quoting carob to him. Carla Zammit Serena to ansata

00:14:17--> 00:14:46

libre rob the HA. Well, are you overly but what are you hola BANA Muhuali Bulava lobby, Zara mad Serena and Zara sorry Zara Emmet Safina to answer totally Well Rob the HA Sakina said that it would defeat its Lord or overcome its the Lord overcome a loss Karnataka what is Sakina? Sakina is like the grease and the flour. What is it called? What's that word? Clarified Butter.

00:14:47--> 00:15:00

V. Right? So the Qureshi used to eat this is basically cheap food and puree and it's fatty food. Okay, so it's a fatty food that Qureshi used to eat a lot of Okay, and so he's basically calling

00:15:00--> 00:15:40

them by the food that they used to eat, right like these lazy fools. So if someone ate a lot of donuts and you said the donut said, you're referring to them because of how many donuts they eat no offense to the donut eaters in here, right? But that's what his poetry is doing. He says I'm at Sakina, meaning Quraysh Sakina claimed that it was going to overcome its lord, what are your beloved animals it will of Allah be and whoever believes, he will overcome the one who overcomes shall be overcome, whoever believes he will overcome, the one who overcomes shall be overcome. So the prophets lie. Some is saying, Allah has not forgotten those powerful words that you said. And Allah

00:15:40--> 00:16:18

does not forget anything. And it was so beautiful. I mean, imagine and cap says, what is it? Yes, Allah and the prophets license. Turns out, we'll record all the law I know and say, why don't you share those words and I will record right off the top of his heads of his head shares those words back to captive nomadic about the Allahu Taala and who so it's a beautiful statement and it's a beautiful means by which we see the the praise of the prophets lysozyme for his poetry as well. I've run out of new capital the Allahu Anhu he narrates that caribou the Allahu Anhu said Ya rasool Allah, had ends of Allah who for sure Allah Anza said, O Messenger of Allah. Allah has revealed

00:16:19--> 00:16:57

things about the poet's that he has revealed meaning what? When Allah talks about poets in the Quran, it's not praise, right? Sure, Allah are not praised in the Quran. And this was of course, the fear of who our beloved Allah like poets are not praised people in the Quran. They're looked down upon. And so he was worried. He said, Yeah, also Allah. Allah has revealed about the poet's what he revealed. And he's basically saying to the prophets, I don't feel like I'm doing something good anymore. Like I'm worried about my rank. I'm worried about my status. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responded in El Mujahidin Muda, he don't be safe. He he when he said he he, the

00:16:57--> 00:17:35

prophets like some said the Majah had the one who strives, strives with his sword and with his Tunc. And he said, well let the NFC be ready, like a NEMA testimony at home be he not never. He said Salallahu Salam and I swear by the one in whose hand is my soul, that your words are like the arrows being thrown towards them. I mean, you your your tongue is archery, you know what you are able to accomplish with your tongue so keep doing what you do. It's okay you you shouldn't feel like you are low because of the poetry that you use because obviously capital the Allah Anna was using this poetry in battle, almost exclusively in battle, to

00:17:36--> 00:18:18

to get the troops ready, right and to keep the morale high and keep them going. So this is capital the Allahu Anhu. Around the prophets lie Selim, one of the poets of the prophets lie Selim, someone who has a heroic story and someone who has seniority amongst the Companions, one of those who who is there on the night of Acaba, so one of the early Muslims, and that's what makes the book so significance. So now we get into what's known as the story of cabin nomadic, the repentance of cabin nomadic. In the chapters of Hadith, there is no person who occupies a greater story than capital the Allahu Anhu. In regards to his Toba in regards to his repentance, it is the longest story of

00:18:18--> 00:18:30

repentance and the most famous story of repentance, that is told in the books of biography and the books of seal, and the books of a Hadith from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So we go to taboo.

00:18:32--> 00:18:34

Taboo is a battle,

00:18:35--> 00:18:55

in which once again, the Romans have killed an ambassador, the prophets lie some sends an ambassador to them, and they killed him. And essentially, that was taken as a declaration of war and the prophets lie some starts to march towards to a book with the expectation that this is going to be a large scale battle between the Muslims and the Romans. And

00:18:56--> 00:18:58

this story,

00:19:00--> 00:19:42

you know, is really not complete unless you understand the circumstances of the book as a whole, like the individual story of cabinet remarkable the amount of time on Capitol the law on himself had been Muslim for over a decade at this point, close companion of the Prophet, slice alum. And most of those who had been close to the Prophet slice them up until this point, did what was predictably, some predictable excellence, if you will, right, those who stood with the Prophets lie, some embedded taboo is a daunting task, who cares? So most of the stories of the companions of the prophets lie Selim are stories that cause you to admire them. Who can tell me the most famous story

00:19:42--> 00:19:50

of charity from Tabuk. Does anyone know? I'll give you a clue Gish and Ursula, it's called the difficult army, the army in hardship.

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

Or it's not even our family alone. Okay. It's Monaldi Allah and who was the one who financed the army of Tabuk and the prophets I saw them look

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

Buying and selling mail dollars man the fact that

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

nothing would ever harm Earth man after what he did today like this amazing contribution of Earth mammal the Allah and the way he came forth with the Prophets lie Selim predictable exon excellence, beauty and the prophets lie Selim praised him. I've run out of Nero for the Allahu Taala and will also predictable right spends and comes forward the close companions of the Prophet slice on the bed that to you and the people who are there all gathering around the prophets lie Selim and they're saying we'll go forth yellow suit Allah, we don't care how daunting it is, right? And the hypocrites

00:20:38--> 00:21:20

are very defined here, see and ventilated, they got away with not having to be there anyway. Remember, they split off right before the battle started? The hypocrites split off right before the battle started, Hunt duck, they plotted from the inside, right and tried to make things worse on the inside to book. They tried to discourage people from going forward. And those that were still in the ranks of the Muslims, you know, and weren't exposed at this point. Started to make excuses. And of course, what they did was they mocked everyone who did anything good. So I gave a whole talk about this recently, that when a person came in Jarrah, Jun feta, Sadat obj in kefir, if someone came and

00:21:20--> 00:22:02

donated a large amount, Paolo Murai. They said he's just showing off so this man comes under amendment. They said what to show off. Right? He's not sincere. He's just doing this to show off. And then on the other hand, wha Rajon Fatah sada kabisa. And a man comes and all he had was this small handful he all he had was just something seemingly insignificant to donate. And he had to work for the whole day. He went out and worked for the whole day to gather just a PSA that he could go and present to the profit slice and I'm gonna say this is my contribution to the army as the profit slice I was preparing the army and they responded they said in Allah Allah Ghani Jana and sorry

00:22:02--> 00:22:41

Harada said Allah has no need for this man's insignificant amount. So they marked the one who gave a lot. They marked the one who gave a little and Allah subhanaw taala revealed and leadin al mizuna and Malta were in Medina for Salah caught well leadin Elia de Dona Illa Jota. Home. First Corona minimum, Sofia Allah whom in Houma, la Madaba, Ilene those who disparage the people that would give charity among the believers and who find nothing to spend of their efforts. So they mark them, and Allah marks them, and they will have an agonizing punishment. So you've got people that are giving sadaqa, you know, this is a long lead up to the battle. Okay, you have a lot of time to think about

00:22:41--> 00:23:11

this. And it's July, around the time of July, and it's burning hot. And they're about to go to unknown land and face a much bigger army. Right, this is a daunting task. So you got the predictable sadaqa the people giving a lot, and then you got the people that are trying to give what they can. And then you have those that are coming forth, and they are crying to the prophesy son because they have nothing to give. And they don't have the means to go out. And you have the people whose health does not allow them.

00:23:13--> 00:23:24

And you have the people whose health does not allow them to go forward. Okay, so you're getting all these different, you know, groups of people, and you have the hypocrites.

00:23:26--> 00:23:35

Now, what happens is, this basically boils down to at the end of it once it comes time for the battle. You have 20,000 Sahaba, surrounding the Prophet. So I said I'm ready to go.

00:23:37--> 00:24:18

20,000 companions, huge army, that are leaving behind, you know, the comfort of their homes, and putting themselves in a very difficult situation and marching in the heat in the hot summer without even much water to carry them through. And then you have the people of Earth. The people who had an excuse to stay back, they were sincere, they were righteous, they wish they could go forward. And then you had the hypocrites, right, the hypocrites, the hypocrites who made excuses for themselves when they didn't really have an excuse. And they tried to discourage people from going forward. They said you know that title for how to talk Don't go difficult right now, this is a difficult battle.

00:24:18--> 00:24:23

Stay behind. So you got these three groups of people. And then you have these three men,

00:24:24--> 00:24:35

amongst whom is category thematic, that really are the outliers. These are three companions of the Prophet sly Salam, who are great men.

00:24:36--> 00:24:43

And they don't have an excuse, but they stayed behind and they are cabinet nomadic. Well the Allahu Anhu

00:24:45--> 00:24:57

Marrara ignorable, beer and Hilah even omega, so, Candido, Malik, Murata, technophobia, and healer, the omega. These three men are great companions of the prophets like Selim,

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

and all three of

00:25:00--> 00:25:20

them got caught up and ended up falling behind so they missed the army when it went out for Tabuk so here you have Kabam medical the alo on home, sharing the story of what happened to him. And the narration it's actually beautiful the narration the narration is from cab if no Abdullah ImmunoCAP nomadic

00:25:22--> 00:26:05

tribe, the grandson narrating from cab the grandfather, the story of his thing behind and the story of his repentance. And this is 40 years later, kind of nomadic sharing the story with his son 40 years later when he was blind because the narration actually says that Khabib nomadic will the Allahu Tada I'm sharing with his son Abdullah, who then shares it with his son cab, who he named after his father 40 years later my regret for staying behind in public. So this is the you know, you thought think about even above or below I know my getting the story from Southern mountain Festival, the Allahu Anhu. Here you have Khabib nomadically, the Allahu Anhu 40 years after the incidents

00:26:05--> 00:26:49

blind sitting in the message of the Prophet slice, I'm talking to his son Abdullah, and saying, let me share with you the story of the time that I stayed behind, in Tabuk. So he goes on to say about the Allahu Taala and who he says lamb at a hello I'm Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if he was watching was caught in fevers, what he Tabuk Viagra and Neil Patel who left to Pharaoh Swati better. Well, I'm your active Adam to Khalifa and who he said, are the Allahu Taala and with that I never missed a battle with the Prophet slice Allah that he undertook except for the battle of Tabuk and the Battle of better and when it came to the Battle of better the prophets lie some did not

00:26:49--> 00:27:36

blame anyone for missing it. So I only missed one battle that I am to blame for because the prophets lie some did not blame anyone for missing better. And he explains because the prophets lie some went on and you read una era Quraysh you know, they were not trying to start a battle a war with grace. They were just simply trying to attack the caravans and get their stolen stuff back. But Allah subhanho Tirana instead caused it to be greater than that they get to me and even though that was not the plan in the first place. Carla what occurred Shaheed tomorrow Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala little acaba Hina to Earth apna al Islam, he said, and I was there on the night that

00:27:36--> 00:28:16

the prophets lie some took the pledge of Acaba when we pledge our allegiance to Islam I mean, this is the earliest station with the Prophets lie some for the Muslims in Medina, I was there when we went to Mecca and secrecy and we embrace the prophets lie some and we took that pledge with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he says that you know when that liberal and Lee Bihar Mashhad are better we're in Canada, we're in Canada two bedroom ethika Rafi NASCI minha and he said, well, the Allah Tala, I know that I would not trade that night of Acaba, even for better, even if better is more famous amongst the people, even if people talk about better all the time. But when we

00:28:16--> 00:29:01

were just 70 of us, you know, going to Mecca and the time of hedge with this man that was wanted by his people, and disparaged by his people. And there was no safety net whatsoever and secretly meeting the prophets lie some and taking that pledge with him. He said, That was the most beloved night of my life. I would not trade that day, for any day in my life, meaning to say like I was there in some difficult moments. I didn't use the myths. The prophets lie Selim in difficult moments, this wasn't out of cowardice, that I fell behind on the day of Tabuk. And he goes on to say, As for my story, or how I fell back in Tabuk, this is brutal honesty. He says lamb akin to Aqua

00:29:01--> 00:29:42

wala esala Mini Hanaa to her left to unhealthy till calabaza wala imaginary to Coppola, raw Halothane cut Hatter gemera Tahoma featured Kalkaska he said that I had never been before the expedition of Tabuk in a good financial situation. I've always been poor. I always had a bad situation. I was always in poverty. And by the way, you know, some of the scholars say at some point he was from his sofa. He was homeless. Cadott nomadic was not a wealthy man. He lived a very difficult life before Islam. He was poor after Islam. He was not someone who was known to be wealthy. So he's saying, you know, throughout Islam, like I struggled, and then by the time taboo

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

came around, he said that was the first time in my life that I own two camels at the same time. I mean, that's, that's the best that I've ever been. This was the easiest situation that I had ever been in. So he's being honest with himself. He's saying that I was finally starting to see some of the

00:30:00--> 00:30:37

he's uncomfortable this dunya that I'd never seen before. So he said fossa rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if he heard and studied was stuck about our suffering there either he said the prophets lie Selim chooses to go out into a book in extreme heat, and with an extreme distance, and the land that we had to cover had no water in it, and we had to confront this large army, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to be ready, kept on telling us be ready to get ready and to be ready. And he said that multiple Muslims

00:30:38--> 00:31:07

heeded the call of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam. And, you know, at the same time, they were so large that there was no proper record of them. What I admire him keytab will have it. There was no scroll like, you know, you're thinking about the draft now. And the scroll is literally writing down the names of those that had come forward. So this 20,000 People in a short amount of time that said Jana Sula, we've got you we're going to go out in this. So he said that in this situation,

00:31:08--> 00:31:39

you know, there were some people that were under the impression they could easily conceal themselves, because it's not like there was a proper record. The prophets, like some said, Come out, but it was very easy for some people to simply sneak out of that situation because it was so much going on at the same time, and so many people, and they were under the impression that they could easily remain undetected until the way from Allah subhanaw taala came down upon the meeting, so to Toba, right? They thought they could easily just sneak out so you got a whole bunch of people going around the prophets like some some people like well, he's not going to notice me. And it's not like

00:31:39--> 00:32:10

this is being recorded anywhere. Like no one's writing down or taking names, so we can get out of this from the Prophet sallallahu Ana he was caught our huzzah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Mathilde Canvaswork Hina Tabata thema. Well, Willa, and Elijah asked us to, he said, all the Allahu Taala and that the prophets lie, some set out on this expedition and the garden, the garden that I had, the fruits were right. And the shadows had been lengthened. And he said,

00:32:11--> 00:32:52

for Anna, Ilya, that I had a weakness for that, like I'm finally starting to see my crops are growing, I've got something going here with my wealth. So he said that to Jahaz rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or when a Muslim or in America, the prophets like some of the Muslims, were getting ready. And I thought to myself, well, I'll get ready when the time comes. Basically, I procrastinated, what are called Rufina, FSI and Accardi Runa. Allah Lika either, alright, you know, when the time comes, I'm pretty good at doing this. I know how to get ready for battle quickly. When the Prophet slicin says it's go time, I'll get ready then. But so far, you know, I've got time. So

00:32:52--> 00:33:32

let me just keep on enjoying this new comfort that Allah Subhana Allah has given to him. And he said that I kept on doing that kept on procrastinating. Until people were we're about to leave it was getting to the time that the prophets lie some was about to set out on this journey. And those that were with him, those that had that, that that that that energy, that readiness, that preparedness, they were ready to go. So he said, I kept on delaying and they were about to go. And I went out early in the morning, it looked like they were about to leave. And I came back. And I thought to myself, You know what, they're probably not going to leave today. They'll probably leave tomorrow.

00:33:33--> 00:33:36

And he said that as time went on,

00:33:37--> 00:33:40

I realized that the prophets lie Selim the next morning was gone.

00:33:41--> 00:33:43

And the companions were gone.

00:33:44--> 00:33:53

So this is a shock for him. Right? Wait a minute, he left the prophets lie. Some had been saying all this time. Be ready. Be ready, be ready.

00:33:54--> 00:34:21

Capital D Allahu Anhu. Heard it. He intended it. But he'd come home. He'd see his garden. See his two camels. This is this idea of distraction. Not a palace. Right? Not Tiktok. Right. Just his distraction was what you know, I got some fruits coming out on these trees. Things are pretty comfortable right now. I'll take a nap today. I'll be ready. When the time comes. I'm ready for battle. I know how to do this. And then they were gone.

00:34:23--> 00:34:31

So he said that I at that point, said to myself, for him to an altar healer.

00:34:33--> 00:34:54

With Rico. He said that I told myself, I wish I could go and catch them. And subhanAllah he's sharing this narration 40 years later to his son. This is so powerful. And this is one of the things that can be missed when you're just reading through something quickly. And in the middle of sharing this narration late an ephah and God I wish I did it.

00:34:55--> 00:35:00

Like I still am mad at myself for missing it. 40 years later.

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

You're blind after Allah announced his Toba in the Quran, he's going back and calling to the Sun those moments before they left and he says fairleads and he felt from Milan you cut the Attica Lee but Allah subhanaw taala decreed otherwise for me

00:35:17--> 00:36:04

so he describes the scene and Medina. Karla atrophic to either Faraj to finance the the Fuji Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Zuni and Neela or Ali sweeten Illa Rajan moves on Ali he finished our Jhulan Minnemann Allah Allahu Mina dua, he said that I went out amongst the people. And I was so depressed, that the only people left in Medina, were people who were clear hypocrites, people that were just clear me when I 15, I looked out and saw a bunch of hypocrites. And I saw the people that were exempt because of their incapacity, because of their health or whatever reason, they could not go with the profit slice. Um, so that's when it really struck me, like you imagine

00:36:04--> 00:36:16

when 20,000 Sahaba leave Medina, but the prophets lie Selim. And he goes out and looks around and he says, Oh, my God, Who are these people? These are the people that I found myself left behind with.

00:36:17--> 00:36:23

So he said, that I was so sad, but I knew that there was no way for me to catch up with the profit slice and I'm at that point.

00:36:24--> 00:36:52

And he said, Well, I'm youth coordinator Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had bellava taboo aka the prophets lie someone did not mention the to the Companions until we got to Tabuk well, who are Jellison Phil Cohn with our book The Prophet sighs I was sitting with the companions and taboo I mean, there's 20,000 People in the heats going out, kicking up the sands and making these preparations and the prophets lie some looks around. And also let's say Sam says my father kept moving on Malik Where's

00:36:53--> 00:36:54

where's cabin nomadic?

00:36:56--> 00:36:58

Now he wasn't saying it to humiliate him

00:36:59--> 00:37:25

and caribou well the law and was obviously hearing the second hand what's happening in his absence. So the prophets lie some looks around he says Where's what happened to Khabib nomadic not making an assumption? Colorado and when Danny Solana man stood up from Beto Salem and he said Ya Rasulullah have a cell who boorda who will never Rofi or it failed. He said, Yeah rasool Allah, the beauty of his gardens and his sudden wealth distracted him.

00:37:26--> 00:37:34

And subhanAllah he said more either than Java or the Allahu Anhu stood up and he said bits and pullets Wallah he yeah rasool Allah ma eliminare. Allah He

00:37:35--> 00:37:57

said, What a horrible thing you just said, well, Allah He taught us Allah, we only know good things about cattle. See, subhanAllah always read the story and assume that you can be someone else in the story. This is your typical backbiting moment. All right. And this is how righteous religious people fall into the depths of ugly sin. You're sitting around, and hey, have you seen that person? They haven't come to the message in a long time. Yeah, so I'm at the mall the other day.

00:38:00--> 00:38:01

You know, I saw them here.

00:38:02--> 00:38:39

Those indications more other than double well, the Allahu Taala and out of his righteousness notice by the way, the man who backbite is not named. So capital the Allah and who knows who he is. But he's doing sitter of him. He's concealing his identity. But he's praising more either than a job but he's saying but more other than Java stood up and maravilla de la and who said what a horrible thing you just said? Allah Yatta sola we only know good things about cat like I can't testify to what held him back. But the man's track record should mean something he's a good man we know the sahabi we don't capital the Allahu Taala I'm a sucker total Rasulullah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the

00:38:39--> 00:38:54

prophets lie some was quiet for the NAMA who are Allah Dalek. While the prophets lie Selim is sitting down with the companions and that exchange just happened the prophets lie some did not get a chance to even comment on what the man said in what morality Allah Tala and who said

00:38:55--> 00:39:15

he said. Raja Raja Ram, mobile Ilan, Yazoo Ruby, his Saurabh that the prophets lie some saw this man running coming forward, dressed in all white. And he was he was so far away. I mean, he's kicking up the dirt. It's like a mirage in the desert. Like there's a man that's coming

00:39:16--> 00:39:55

and the Prophet slice and I'm says couldn't ever hate him. couldn't ever hate him be a haven? I hope you're able Hey, fella, I hope you're able hyphema who was able Haven, he said I will hate them hate them or the Allahu Taala and who led to sadaqa besides a terminal he's the one who brought to us that that small amount of tomato that the munafo and made fun of and he didn't have the means to be with the army but he found a way and he was chasing after the army afterwards to come find the prophets lie Selim. And the prophets like some sees him so far away that it's just like a finger a mirage over there. And the prophets lie some says couldn't ever hate them. I hope that I will hate

00:39:55--> 00:40:00

them and it was I will hate them. I love the Allahu Taala and Han Carabus sharing this not just to share the innocence

00:40:00--> 00:40:47

But like, I could have been able to hide them, you know, shape on held me back from even going and trying to chase afterwards and I would have been okay but you know, it's like, you know, practical example, you know, slotted budget is 630 Get up a little bit late you do your 631 I only catch the second knockout even let me stay behind, right? That's kind of the way shape plan works right procrastination. So he's like the prophets I was so excited to see a boy hate them while the Allahu Taala and he'll come and join him in that moment, or the Allahu taala. And then Caravelle the Allahu Anhu says Phelan, clearly, in our suit Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but a one la cardamom

00:40:48--> 00:41:23

Zaha Anil Belton Hatcher are off to a knee, LAN Anjuman, who we shade in EBITDA for America to cidco I'm paraphrasing this by the way, I'm going a little bit ahead in the Hadith, because the time he said that when the prophets lie, some was coming back. I thought to myself, let me fabricate something or maybe I should tell a lie. Or maybe I should make an excuse the way other people did. And other people told me I should. But when it was said to me that the prophets lie, some was on his way back. Because what happened in taboo they got there in the battle never happens. Right? So they made their way all the way out there. And the battle of Tableau can ever happen. So he says, when I

00:41:23--> 00:42:05

got when the prophets I was coming back, I told myself, that maybe I can fabricate something, or I can tell the story, I can make an excuse. And people were telling me to do that. But he said when I heard the profit slice on was coming, and he was about to arrive, he said, all of that left my mind. And I came to the conclusion that nothing could save me but the truth. Nothing could save me Len Anjuman who we say in order for America to sit nothing would save me except for telling the truth. So I basically just decided I'm going to speak the truth to the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam So the Prophet size some in the army get back from to book and the Prophet size some arrives in Medina.

00:42:06--> 00:42:13

And capital the Allahu Anhu said that the first thing the Prophet slicin would do when he got back to Medina was what was the first thing he would do?

00:42:15--> 00:42:53

Before he'd even go home? What would he do? He'd go to the most of them pray to darkness. Okay, so he says, I knew the prophets like some sunnah his habit was when he came back from a journey battle or elsewhere else why? He would always go back to the masjid before he went home and he pray tonight guys sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he said that the prophets lie Selim did that he came back from suffer and came back from travel. And he prayed these two records. And he said at that point from Magellan solidness after the Prophet size, and previous to that, guys, he sat down in the masjid. He said dilemma for Allah Dalek. Jha Hola Mohalla phone

00:42:54--> 00:43:18

the people that stayed back they all came in they gathered around the prophets lie Selim for tough eco era tell the Rona Leakey well yeah California level they came to the profit slice that I'm and they all started to make their excuses one by one. And he said they were about at none just immediately going to the province. I said we also let this happen yada so let this happen. Yes, Allah this happened Allah so Allah does happen. Obviously Allah does happen in they're all making up stuff.

00:43:20--> 00:43:59

So the prophets lie Selim cobalamin him, he just took what they said at face value. And the prophets lie Selim said, you know, may Allah forgive you will stuff for Allah. And he entrusted their secrets to Allah subhanaw taala whatnot. Well look at us, you know, home it Allah means that the prophets like some took them out what they said and their intentions and what they're really concealing the prophets lie. Some left that to Allah subhanaw taala to decide in their regard. The end of the day, the prophets lie, some said, I'm gonna take you at face value. He knows who they are. And he knows that they're making stuff up. But you know, what, if you're lying your affairs with Allah subhanaw

00:43:59--> 00:44:46

taala if you're not, then Allah Subhana Allah will make a way out for you. He said, I had to change it until it was my turn. So carob is watching this. And he sees these ad men. And he waited until they all finished and he said until I came to the Prophet, slice Allah. And he said Philomena salam to when I gave the Prophets lie Selim, Tibet, Sama, Tabasco zumal mo lob, the prophets like some smile, the smile of an angry man. You know what an angry smile looks like? Right? Like it wasn't his happy smile. The prophets lie some gave me that disappointed and angry smile like not you. Right like everybody else I get this was expected of the hypocrites vocab. What happened to you? So he

00:44:46--> 00:44:47


00:44:48--> 00:44:57

I came to the prophets lie some just Albania day. I sat in front of the prophets lie Selim and he said to me, Mahala Fuck What caused you to fall behind?

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

Didn't you have the means?

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

Go forth, couldn't you afford a ride? And he said that I said to the prophets lie Selim ya rasool Allah, in new Allah, He loads the last two and the Lyric, he said, O Messenger of Allah, I swear by Allah, I was sitting with someone other than human at the dunya from the people of this world, you would have seen that I'm an articulate man, I'm an eloquent person, I would have easily been able to get myself out of this. Right, like, I'm a poet. I know how to make stuff up. I know how to, you know,

00:45:30--> 00:45:57

embellish the truth a little bit. Right? I know how to do this. But because it's you Yatta sola. I'm not going to do this. But he said, I'm just going to admit to you what Allah He Makana the earth, I had no excuse. I've never been in a better situation than winter book started. I had all the means to go. I just procrastinated. I kept on waiting until the last minute, I got distracted, and then I missed out.

00:45:59--> 00:46:32

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says to him, Mr. hodda, forgot Sadhak prophets, like some says, As for this person, he's telling the truth. God, I'm just telling you the truth. And he said the comb had the Allahu FIQ said okay, go until Allah subhana wa Tada reveals something in regards to you. So the Prophet slicin was expecting a revelation that's going to declare the status of all of these people who were exposed in the situation of Tabuk. So he said that, as I left,

00:46:33--> 00:47:11

he said thorough region and Benny Salima for Tibet, Rooney said that this group of people that were watching the whole thing unfold in the masjid, they followed me. And they said to me, Wallahi, Marlon NACA as naptha them then Kubla Harada. We swear by Allah, we've never seen you commit a sin before this, we don't know you to be a person who's ever made a mistake. And he said, Why don't you go back? The way that those people went to the Prophet, slice alum, and give him another just give them an excuse, and the Prophet so I said, I'm will seek forgiveness for you and everything will be okay. Why didn't you do that to yourself? Why did you just tell the prophets lie some that I've

00:47:11--> 00:47:30

never been in a more easy situation, and I have no excuse, I should have went out with you. I just failed the autosomal luck. So trying to prompt him. And he said, that they almost got me to go back to the profit slice on them, and to try to, you know, somewhat soften the blow.

00:47:31--> 00:47:32

But he said,

00:47:33--> 00:47:38

I asked them at that point, go to the home, how lucky I had them or even

00:47:39--> 00:48:22

Has anyone else suffered the same fate as me meaning are there anyone? Or is there anyone that came to the Prophet slicin like me, who just had no excuse? And they said to people that have made the same mistake as you and they refuse to give an excuse. So I said to them, who were they? And when they told me it was morada and healer? I remember that they were as hard from whether they were two companions who were embedded. So I said to myself, if these two pious people, right, were in the situation, then I have no chance, right? I mean, I'm going to basically stay patient because if these two pious people made this, you know, made their case with the Prophets lie, some are

00:48:22--> 00:49:03

delivered the news to the prophets lie some in this way. And the prophets lie some told them wait until last pronto decrees your matter the same way. He told me that I'm not going to go try to change things at this point. Instead, I have to wait. At that point. When AHA rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa salam, Al musli, Moon al Muslimeen, and kala Amina the prophets lysozyme forbade the Muslims from talking to us. So we ended up being excommunicated until the last panel chatter reveals something in regards to us. And he said the people were avoiding us. And then their attitude started to become hostile towards us.

00:49:04--> 00:49:11

And he said at that point, he said Hatta the cult out of that currently, if enough See,

00:49:12--> 00:49:44

or, you know, he said at that point, it felt like the Earth had been confounded. Like the earth was suffocating. I was fully aware. And it was as if the earth was suffocating. And I had absolutely no where to turn. And he said that at that point, I continued, and it went on for 40 whole days where the atmosphere had turned hostile and no one was talking to us. And we were crying and wondering what's going to happen to us.

00:49:45--> 00:50:00

And he says that as for my two companions, they basically stayed at home at that point, and they just cried. They would stay at home and cry morada and heat up. He says, What am Anna for going to a Shabbat shalom. He said that I

00:50:00--> 00:50:40

As for me, I was the youngest of them. And I was the strongest of them for come to approach. I used to go out for a shadow salah, and I would, you know, pray with the Muslims while autofill as well and I would go through the Marketplace while you can leave money ahead and no one would talk to me. So I'm walking around the people and no one is talking to me. And he said what Artie rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but also the man he well who are females Lisi, he buried the Salah, I would go to the Prophet sai Salman, I'd say salaam term after Salah for a call Athena FC hell hardwork fit and I would say to myself that his lips move did he respond to me in this moment,

00:50:41--> 00:51:22

without this salon with the response of the salon or not? Now remember, this was the order of Allah subhanaw taala to leave these three until Allah azza wa jal reveals something in regards to them. So this is not punishment or cruelty towards them. This is Allah azza wa jal has to reveal something in regards to these three men, and their affair is not clear yet. So he says, From now solidly Caribbean Minho. He said, then I would try to go close to Him and pray close to him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I would try to see if I could make eye contact with him it his thought was set up and he said that he would look at me and then if I looked back at him then he would look away so

00:51:22--> 00:52:09

I said, I'm so I couldn't even get a chance to make it eye contact with him. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says Hector either Tala Daddy can Alia mean Jaffa till Muslim. He said at that point when time had going on, and the harshness of the Muslims towards me had increased. He said, I went and I went to the wall of the garden of Abu Qatada. Abu Qatada was my cousin. Well, the Allahu Taala animal and he said that I used to love him who had no I'm me. He was my cousin. What happened nurse in a year he was most beloved of people to me for salaam to it. So I said, Sam, I call Abu Qatada and he said Maradiaga salaam, he didn't respond to the salon. And that's when it really hurt him. He

00:52:09--> 00:52:30

said Falco Tula who I said to him, yeah about cortada and said unto Dukkha Billa health Allah Munna and knee or hip Allah Allah rasool Allah O Abu Qatada, and through Dukkha Billa. I asked you by Allah Hello Charla mana Annie Bula Hora Sula, don't you know that I love Allah and His messenger.

00:52:32--> 00:52:54

And he didn't respond. So I sent it again. I asked you by Allah. Don't you know aren't you aware? Hunter Allah mana? Allah Allah, Allah don't you know I love Allah and His messenger. And he said that he kept on being quiet. And then finally, he responded and he said, Allahu wa rasuluh Allah, Allah and His Messenger know best. I said, that crushed me.

00:52:55--> 00:53:16

So he said, For foul Latina. He said, I started to cry. And I turned away. And I started to climb down from the wall. And as I was walking home, I heard this voice calling my name, but it wasn't a matinee voice. It wasn't from the people of Medina.

00:53:17--> 00:53:25

It was the voice of someone, an outsider who was asking the people in Medina to direct him to me, so they're asking him, Where's Captain Radek? Where's Captain nomadic?

00:53:26--> 00:54:16

So he said, I noticed people were pointing towards me and this man was calling out and they were, you know, eventually this man comes to me, and he hands me a letter. And he said, and I was a scribe, I was literate and I was a scribe and I knew how to read. So he said, I opened up the letter. And he said, it said in that letter M aberrant for in who called the Bella vana and nos la Heba cut Jatha wala Mia Jana Callahan, bedarra hawan. Well, Molly, Willa, Madeira tin foil, Huck, Bina new Asik. He said to me, or that the letter said to me, and it was written from the Christians that we knew, or we've come to know that your friends is mistreating you, meaning the Prophet

00:54:16--> 00:54:17

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:54:18--> 00:55:00

while I'm here, John Callahan. vidare Helen, Allah did not create you to be so degraded. And not to be someone who was so lost and mistreated. That has to be now come to us. New ASIC and we'll treat you well. We're out we'll honor you. So basically leave the Muslims and come to us join us and we'll treat you well. So he said that Hanaa caught up to her. I read it and I said to myself, how the Avon Minella. This is also a test and he said I put it in a 10 note, I basically burnt it in the oven. Of course this was another trick of shape on hey, you know what you messed up? Why don't you go leave your religion? Come to us

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

And you'll be treated well with us. So he said, then at that time,

00:55:07--> 00:55:08

as time had passed,

00:55:11--> 00:55:13

even our wives had stopped talking to us.

00:55:15--> 00:55:51

So I asked the Prophet slice, am I supposed to divorce her and the prophets lie, Selim said no. So he has to remain separate from his wife or he's separate from his wife. And he said, the same message was said to my companions, or that, you know, even their wives are not talking to them at this point. And I said to my wife, you better go to your parents and stay with them until Allah Subhana Allah gives us some sort of an order. And he goes on to say that the wife of he landed in Romania came to the Prophet's life. Someone said, the eldest Allah, He died isn't, is an older man, he has no one to serve him. I just want to serve Him, I'm not going to be around him or be intimate

00:55:51--> 00:56:24

with Him. He doesn't have that instinct, but I still want to be around them and serve them in the prophets lie. Some of them gave her that permission. And while we're kind of separated from the community in this regard, some of my family members came to me and said, Why don't you go to the Prophet slice? I'm gonna say Allah, so Allah, can I be with my wife because the prophets I said, I'm permitted. He doesn't even know me yet to have his wife.

01:01:46--> 01:01:48

And I said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

01:01:50--> 01:01:51

to Yaroslav Allah.

01:01:52--> 01:01:55

He said, I said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

01:01:56--> 01:01:58

in Allah in NEMA and Janee Bisset.

01:02:00--> 01:02:36

He said that Allah saved me, by me speaking the truth. And he said, we're in them in Tober T. And law who had the third in law sitcom, The kids from my tilba I will make sure that I never say a word ever again in my existence, except that it is truth. Lying would have messed things up for me.

And he said, I will never tell a lie or messenger of Allah, as long as I live with this tongue.

01:02:37--> 01:02:48

And he goes on Subhanallah and he said by Allah I do not know whether anyone amongst the Muslims was put more severe was put in more severe trial

01:02:49--> 01:03:34

by Allah because of telling the truth. But Allah subhanho wa Taala also revealed in regards to capital the Allahu Tada Anhu and his companions, his forgiveness SUTA to Toba is about their Toba is about their repentance. The verses of their Toba verses 117 and 118 were ALLAH SubhanA wa reveals that Allah azza wa jal has forgiven them and rewarded them and that ALLAH SubhanA which Allah has counted them amongst the truthful and Allah azza wa jal advising us to be amongst aside the pain for toquilla Well Kumar aside the clean Sofia Allah and be amongst the truthful and caribou, the Allah Tada and home. He said by Allah, there is no blessing more significance in my life than the truth

01:03:34--> 01:04:11

that I spoken of in the face of the prophets lie Selim. And if I were to tell a lie, I would have been ruined as the liars were ruined. Because all those people that made excuses with the Prophets lie some of the prophets lie, some accepted it, Allah revealed verses about them being hypocrites. Allah revealed verses about their lives. And so it's a lesson as well, that telling the truth, even if it's going to hurt you in the beginning, the reward of that is great and telling lies, even if it's going to make things easy for you in the beginning, the pain of it afterwards is great. This is the story of cabinet melodical the Allahu Tada Anhu of his Toba of his repentance. And this is

01:04:11--> 01:04:19

something Subhanallah that we take for ourselves. The day that Allah forgives you is the greatest day of your life. The day that Allah looks at you,

01:04:20--> 01:04:59

and says that you are amongst those who received his repentance is the greatest day that exists on this earth, whether that's Laylatul Qadr, whether that's the beginning of Ramadan, whether that is your head or the day of alpha or whether that's just a moment that you don't even know is recorded, in which Allah sees you as a sincere repenter and Allah Subhana Allah to Allah forgives you. We see with capital the Allahu taala, and who after this, and I know we've run out of time, so I don't want to take too much time. He lives a long peaceful life after this. And his story becomes synonymous with one thing which is Toba to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and many of the

01:05:00--> 01:05:43

Hadith are narrated from his children from his 11 children. Well, the Allahu Anhu and we see that he was someone that did not participate in anything that would not be truthful or anything that would not be noble. When Earth mama the Allahu Taala and who was besieged he was still alive. And he said this poetry, he said, For Cafe de Haytham Aloka barber who were a con and Allah Hi Elisa be lively. He said that remarkable the Allahu Anhu threw up his hands and shut his doors. And he had certainty that Allah subhanaw taala is certainly not amongst the heedless, will call a demon feeder he learns to party though if Allahu unqualified culinary in LA mu cardi and he said to those that were in his

01:05:43--> 01:06:26

home, do not fight back. Allah has forgiven everyone who does not partake in the fitna does not partake in the bloodshed. For K for eight Allah has sub de la himolla Dawa well above La Banda Tao study and look how Allah subhanho wa Taala allowed them instead, you know, after their closeness to one another to become consumed with enmity and become consumed with hatred and grudges.

Well when can a bar in the middle Java theory and the translation of this and have you seen how goodness all goodness has left from them and escaped from them ran away from them like an ostrich in fear? You know that goodness went away from them when they started

01:06:26--> 01:07:03

to kill other Muslims when they killed their Islam, while the Allahu Anhu when they turned their back on, they turned their backs on him obviously, he was very sensitive to the Allahu Taala Anhu to what he saw as the abandonment of a righteous man because of his own experience, while the Allahu Taala and he died of natural causes at very, very old age. And he narrates from the Prophets lie Selim. Several Hadith the most famous of them is his own narration of himself the narration of Tabuk and most of the hadith of Cairo, the Allahu Anhu are about the travel habits of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I end with one narration because it's the first narration we

It shows you how the people of Medina all come together and the amount of new capital the Allahu Tada and he says that when my father was too old, to take himself to the masjid and he was blind, he said that I was taking my father to the masjid and he said that every time he heard the other than for Juma

And we asked him, Why is it that you always seek forgiveness for us rather than Zuloaga? And he said, because he was the first one to give us hope. And together as for Juma and before the prophets lie some arrived in this place as being the first person that we spoke about from the unsolved so you see the way the history of these people come together? May Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with them all on send His peace and blessings upon our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
