I want to ask people to do more talking Allahumma salli wa sallam about a kind of empty camera so they can Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. While early, he was lucky to be here or send them to see him and cathedra
you know, subhanAllah when I started this series a few years ago on the first, the biographies that I was most excited about covering where the we are biographies of people that were completely unknown.
And subhanAllah one of the things that happens as we go through the lives of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa Salam is that when you study them as individuals, you realize that some of them had enormous impact, but we're not celebrated as much as they should be. And some of them became footnotes in the stories of someone else. And the man that we are covering today, is probably one of my favorite biographies in the entire series, because he has literally become a footnote in the story of the most prolific narrator of Hadith in history of the Hodeidah alone the amount of time. But his story in and of itself, is absolutely legendary. And we're going to learn Subhanallah
so much from the twists and turns in his own life and the miracles that happen in his own life as well as his dedication. And I think before I get into his story, it's just a reminder that it's one thing to have noted influence, it's another thing to have noble impact. And this man likely gets the budget in our lives on a daily basis, and most of us do not know anything about him except maybe the story of how he called a war aid or the Allahu Taala and hope to Islam. And that man is to fail even amor a dosi, or the Allahu Taala and how to fail even a dosi to fail in your armor. Radi Allahu anhu, whose nickname is similar to the nickname of Earth mama the Allahu taala. And what is one of
Can someone tell me Earth man's nicknames or it might have been fun.
The no rain, the possessor of two lights? Why was he called the possessor of two lights?
Primarily because he's the only man in history to have married two daughters of the Prophet salallahu Salam he married okay got all the one hand she passed away. And then he married on Cartoon Tofail is known as the nor the possessor of light, and I'll talk about why in sha Allah to Adam, but he has two fatal dosi the newer the possessor of light, he was the chief of a tribe that is known as a dose. Now, a dose is a tribe that is famous for all of the wrong reasons. They're famous for partying. They're famous for drinking. They're famous for dancing. They're famous for gambling, they're famous for Ribba for interest in usury. So they're famous for all of the wrong things. And
when you read about the file, for example, the tribe of Abu Dhabi, the Allah Tada, LG 31 Without embraced Islam, it was like, but what about the far like the far or the noted highway robbers, they have a reputation and it's not a good reputation. And so without all the low on who survives a beat down in Mecca, because those that are beating him are reminded that he's from refiled Watch out to fail the law of town and who happens to be the chief of a tribe that is not known for stealing, but it's an affluent tribe that is known for partying, and a great level of carelessness and recklessness. Now dos is from a place called Ned's Ron. At that time, it was known as part of Yemen.
So it's a Yemeni tribe as well, just like the Ensenada from Yemen. But if you look at the map, if you could put up the map in sha Allah Tirana, this is where an Zylon is today in regards to what Saudi Arabia right, so it's right. Today it belongs to what's actually part of Saudi Arabia, which of course, back then, these were not the countries that existed. But back then it was attributed to Yemen. So when they used to refer to neutron they used to refer to it as a Yemeni tribe. And it's Subhanallah a very interesting part of Saudi Arabia. Is anyone in here binson are drawn by the way before? Anyone, okay, can you show the picture of neutron neutron is known to be a place of great
greenery. So if you've ever seen five, for example, and this was a trait of thought of a treat of Medina, a treat of Nigerian as well, that there's a lot of greenery. So it's a place that is actually known for being rich in terms of its resources, a beautiful place, and it's a wealthy place and the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wa salam, and Tofail or the Allahu Taala and who happens to be the chief of that tribe. Now there's also something else about this tribe ovaherero, the Allah Tada and he reported in an authentic hadith that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Lata como Sera, the Hour will not be established. heterotopic arriba Alia to Nissa
Nissa Dosen Hola, Lil Hello sir.
The hour will not be established until the women of DOS dance around the Hello sir. Again. Little Hello, sir. Was the
Idol of the people of dose. Now obviously back then you had sort of the chief idols and you had personal idols in people's houses. So the holosophic was an idol that they used to hold festivals around they used to sacrifice towards, and their practices were very lewd around that idol. And subhanAllah. Some of you might be thinking, it's happening, we're seeing it happen, and indeed Subhanallah anytime you see the rise of facades, you see the rise of corruption. In places where certain types of corruption have become unfamiliar to us, it should make us ponder upon the hour. But by the way, this actually, if you read about the history of Mecca, if you go back to the 1900s,
the early 1900s, it's actually reported that the people in that area of neutron during a famine and drought rebuilt little Kalasa. And they started to offer sacrifices towards it, and it was destroyed an altitude, attack them and it's kind of written in some of the books about America, the history of Mecca, which shows you that, you know, humanity dips, and then it comes back, it dips and it comes back. We just don't know when that dip is going to happen. And people will not return from it until the day of judgment comes. And it's upon us. Obviously, when we see facade, when we see corruption that's become unfamiliar to reflect and to say this is, you know, such a shame, such a shame, that
you start to see idols rise again, you start to see corruption become familiar in the place where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brought Islam right. So these are things that we're going to reflect upon, obviously, when we see it, but it's it's specific to this tribe that the Prophet slice I mentioned, a sign of the Day of Judgment in them. And of course, that could be in their descendants and their larger tribes, so some of their descendants still reside in Arabia. Now, the story of Tofail in an AMA associated the Allahu Taala and who is that not only was he the chief of his tribe, but he was a person of great presents a person of great power, a person of great poetry.
So just to kind of get the image of the man. He has a tribe that the Arabs want no problems with, the Mexicans have a serious vested interest in making sure that their alliance is strong with DOS, because you saw where it is, where it's located, and that they don't become allies to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And to fail is exceedingly intelligent, exceedingly eloquent, holds a lot of sway with people. And he used to come to hedge, of course, back then they had the hedge of the days of ignorance around their idols, he used to come to Hajj every single year, and even more, he used to come to Mecca frequently. And he would go to suka little cards, which was the primary
marketplace. He used to trade there. And he used to be one of the poets of Akkad. So he would come and people would surround him and they would listen to his poetry. So he holds a huge amount of presents. And you've got to think in the minds of Abuja and Abu Lahab, and their likes, when people who don't live in Mecca come to Mecca, they're going to hear about the news about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so they want to preempt any exposure to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam with their propaganda, especially the powerful people, so they've got a game plan amongst themselves, that when the time of Hajj comes, it's very sensitive. Now. You've got to go to all of
the chiefs that are coming from the neighboring tribes, take them to the side, tell them all these horrible things about the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam, so that they will not be affected by the Quran. Now, he in particular, was very feared in regards to his Islam, because if he becomes Muslim, obviously he gives a certain Heemeyer a certain type of protection to the prophets lie Selim. it severs an alliance with Qureshi, he also is an eloquent spokesperson for Islam. Should he embrace this? No. So he comes from Yemen, he comes from Amazon. And he actually mentions that, you know, as soon as I got there, he was surprised to see the Abuja hub immediately and it tells you the status
of a person to Ebola hub is going to be the one that's going to take him to the site. Ebola hub immediately has this whole reception ready for him. He takes him to the side, and he wants to fill his ears with the propaganda about the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam and realize that Qureshi is going to use the tactic that they know will work for that particular person to fail was a man of his tribe. He loved his tribe being together. He loved the families of his tribe being together, he cares about his people. And so the propaganda is that while sola sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a tribe wrecker, he's going to divide the tribe, he's going to divide your families, he's going to pit
people against each other, and it's going to cause huge dissent. So they went to him. And Ebola hub starts and he says, listen out to fail. In NEC and Rohan Shah, you don't say you're doing. You are a poet. You are a leader. We're in Kedah, Sheena and yellow caca ha the Raju for you will see Becca be barley Hadith V. The innama Hadith who who can say? Final? So they said listen, we're worried about you meeting this man because if you meet this man, his words are sorcery. His words are like his words or sorcery.
So be very, very careful. It's a powerful form of sin. Now usually what do Salah do? What's the sign of a head and a family? They tear families apart, right? So they're, they're trying to basically portray the prophets lie some as having this voice or the spell that he casts on people that suddenly makes a husband hate his wife that suddenly makes a brother hate his brother, a father, hate a son, and so on, so forth. So they say to him, that we're afraid and usually Nonito or Allah call Mika Madhava Elena, we're afraid he's going to do to you and your people what he did to us in the whole federal law Kadena Lamar, Eva, he will be in el mar. He was OJT. He will be in a Mario
Abney. He He's divided husband from wife. He's divided brother from brother. He's divided parents from their children. So they kept on talking to him. And Tofail says, follow Allah hemozoin know you had the Tonisha no way and hony and asthma I mean, who had to go to Walla Hilah. Absolutely must Judah in La La Turin Masjid Illa, Allah sadoun. Within a year, he said, they kept on talking to me, and they kept on getting to my head. Until I said to myself, I'm not going to enter the masjid unless my ears are plucked, I've got to have earplugs. So think about like one of those headphone commercials or something like that, like, I gotta plug my ears. So I can't hear anything when I go
to the President. So I got to perform my hedge. But I hope I don't run into this myth. And if I run into him, I'm afraid his head is going to hit me. Right? So I've got to plug my ears because the sorcery might affect me. So what did he do? He said that I put quarter sofa, I put cotton in my ears. I stuffed my ears as much as I could with cotton. And I went to the masjid. And I started to do to off and he said, So I saw the profit slice and I'm calling monthly masjid, standing up in the masjid reading and praying close to the caribou. And I basically tried to keep a distance from him. But his curiosity got to him he realized the silliness of this all so you know, he kind of wants to
hear what he's saying. But at the same time, he wants to stay back. So he wants to test the waters a bit. So he gets just close enough. He said, Herb Allah, Allah and use Miani Miranda holy, Allah azza wa jal refused, except that I would hear some of what he had to say. So I heard some of what the prophets lie some recited. And I said to myself, well, Allah He in the herder lives, like what a shame this is. And he said, I'm a person who's subbed. I'm a person who's firm who's, who's, who's intelligent. He said, Mata and Ian, are mortal, Hassan, Hassan wha, wha kabhi who have said, I can distinguish between good and bad. And he said, Well, Allah who I'm going to go and listen to him,
and if he's a person who makes sense, if he's a person of guidance, then I'll listen to Him and if he's a person who's speaking nonsense, I'll be able to distinguish, and I'll be able to cast him aside. So he said, So I removed the the cotton from my ears, and he said, I started to listen closer to what the Prophet slicin was saying. He said, philam Esma cut to Calum and accent I mean, Kalam and Yatta Kalam movie never heard anything more beautiful than what he was reciting so I'm not sure what he was saying, but it was beautiful what he was reciting. And the prophets lie Selim is unassuming. He's doing his thing. Now to fail also says sorcerers had a particular look. I'm from
New Orleans when you see someone that does voodoo. They look weird. All right, said a Sahara had a particular look like the profit slice, um, didn't look like a Sasha. Not and by the way, some Sahara don't have that look, but overall, like it kind of spook you out, especially in that time they've got they've got a certain type of aura to them. He's like the prophets like Selim, had beautiful manners, humble character. He looks like he's calm at peace tranquil. He's minding his own business, he's reciting the Quran. So he said, You know, I followed him to his house. And I knocked on the door, and Khadija will the Allahu anha answered, so I asked permission to speak to the prophets lie
And I said to him, this, introduce themselves to the Prophet twice, and we said, enter, let the desert and we'll call mocha and like I said, You're the guy that people say is a sorcerer.
So the prophets like some smiled and said, Yes, that's me.
So he said, firmer InDeck What do you have? What is it that you're actually teaching? What are you reciting? So the prophets lie some recite it to him. So little fella Subhanallah think about that. Right? So did Philip sorted a class? Right in one of the narrations? So he read to him some of the Quran and obviously parts of the Quran are seeking refuge in Allah subhanaw taala from the things that the prophets like some supposedly was. So he read to him some of the Quran and to fail around the Allahu Taala and who was completely blown away
by Karla for Islam. He said right away, I became Muslim.
I said to him, how do I accept your religion? How do I become one of your followers? So the Prophet slice and I'm told him the shahada taught him how to see a shadow Allah and Allah shadow under Muhammad Rasool Allah, and he put out his hand he said, I extended my hand to the prophets I said, I'm I held the hand of the prophets. I saw them and I gave my
harder, and I gave my pledge to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam until fail is an intelligent man. He's also a powerful man. And he also assumes that once he gets back and tells us people's people are going to become Muslim to because of the presence that he has. So he says to the prophets lie, some yellow suit Allah, why don't you come back with me to dose to not drawn to my tribe of DOS, we will take care of you, we will protect you. And we will be your allies against everyone that is around. So Subhanallah in a moment, he went from Cofer from disbelief to hedaya, to guidance to Heemeyer to wanting to protect the prophets lie Selim, which is absolutely miraculous in and of itself. The
prophets lie some of them is nice about this.
He says to to fail, hell, where are coming ahead? Do you have anyone behind you? I mean, are you sure this is going to work basically, like you're inviting me to make a journey outside of Mecca. And this is relatively early in the data before the prophets lie, some is being attacked in public in the vicious ways that he was, especially in the last few years. So the lie so I'm in Mecca. So this is still earlier on in the Meccan period, where it's really, you know, verbal propaganda against the Prophet, slice alum, whereas they're attacking his weakest followers, only his sloth was stolen.
So he says, I'm having an argument I had I mean, do you have anyone who's Muslim back there? Do you? Do you really trust that you've got people back there? So to fail Rhodiola and who said I thought about it. And I said, some I said to myself, now I really don't know. If I'm being honest with you. I don't know if I have the protection for you if you come with me to number one. So he said that let me go back to them. And let me call them to Islam. Call Allah and Allah and yeah, dear home, so it may be that Allah will guide them and he said, y'all rasool Allah, odor Allah and yadgir Annalee Aya, O Messenger of Allah, pray to Allah to give me a miracle to give me a sign for Karla salAllahu
alayhi wa sallam, Allah Azza wa Jalla who I attend to her in who? Oh Allah, give him a miracle by which you will support him.
He doesn't know what it is. So he said, For Karatsu so I left I didn't talk to Abu Lahab I didn't talk to anyone else in Makkah, so he didn't cause any commotion, right so they're making the assumption that he's done his Hajj he's done his shopping, he's done when he has to do and now he's going back to to Yemen. So he says, I went back to my people, and I went alone, hut, hut, Ashraf to Allah Thani Yachty call me until I got to the Valley of my people. Wherever you who Naka che Han Kabir, WA, Marathi. Well, well are the so he mentioned that, you know, I had my father and old man, my wife and my children and they're there. They're, you know, over that valley. And he said that
right as I was about to get into my place, while the Allahu baina Aina Nomura Allah azza wa jal put right between my eyes alight.
So what was his nickname? The news, the possessor of light, that's his nickname. So imagine he gets to the valley. And suddenly there's a light that's shining from his head. And this was the idea that the Prophet slicin made you out for now he said to himself, as powerful as that is, and obviously you wake up and suddenly you have a light that's shining from your face. He understood what was happening. He said, Hola. Hola for you, Lady when she Oh, Allah let it be an other than my face. Why? He said for any action, and you'll know and Muslim. If Irati Dini him, he said, I'm afraid that my people will think that this is actually a punishment or something that was given to me because I
left their religion. So I'm afraid they might actually misinterpret if I have a light that suddenly shining between my eyes, that something bad has happened to me that I'm being made an example out of, because I left their religion. So he said that to hell, Willa, for water Phyrexian solidly So it moved, the light moved from my face, and it moved to the top of my cane. So he had a stick, and he had a light on it. And this is one of the Catamounts one of the miracles that can happen to people obviously, count on that. Usually, the cut amount of the LDS the miracles of the righteous will usually follow in the tradition of the miracles of the prophets. So obviously we know Musa Ali
salaam had a similar miracle, and you will find that righteous people, sometimes Allah azza wa jal has blessed them to have a miracle as a proof in in a way that resembles some of those. So he said that I had the light on top of it to under hook in deal and more unlock as it as if it was a hanging chandeliers panela, like a beautiful chandelier that was on top of my stick. And I went into the tribe of DOS holding on to it. And as soon as I got there, and I'm holding on to the slight, he said a tiny abhi my father came to me now to fade wants to use a certain type of rhetoric.
Let's get to work with his family. So this is not if you become Muslim, this is what you do you go home and you say this to them. All right. But his father came to him and he said, Lekha Anthony, for us to make our testimony. No, no, you're not for me and I'm not from you.
Now he's doing that to get a shock out of his father, Father loves him, respects him, his father says, Well, now that what happened to you?
Why are you saying that? He said in Islam to what Tibet to Dina Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, I become Muslim and I accepted the religion of Muhammad slice Allah.
And he said, awalnya, Deen, Enoch, my son, your religion is my religion. So whatever it is that you just embraced, I embrace it too.
So he explained to him
to hate and the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala. And what he learned from the Prophet sly Salem, and his father became Muslim quickly, and he says, we care that he can own me, for Islam. And then my mother, as well. She came in, she found my father. And she said, what happened? What is the slight I explained to her what had happened? And she became Muslim as well. So both of my parents had become Muslim. He said, I went to my wife, and the same thing happened.
I said, Let's do it. Whereas the money, I'm not from you, and you're not from me, she said, Why? Why are you saying that? He said, I became Muslim. And I followed the religion of Mohammed slice I'm she said, what is that? So I told her about Islam? She said, But will the shut off? Which is an idol that they had? Will he harm us? If we embrace Islam, see, there are superstitions. So if I leave the religion of my people, are we going to be harmed? And he said, Well, Allah, He lent you the key, I swear by Allah, it will not harm you. And she repeated it again. And I repeated it again. And she repeated it a third time, and I repeated it a third time, and I said, Go and bathe yourself, and it
will not harm you. So she went and she bathe herself. She did the wholesome, she came back. And now his father, his mother, his wife, and his children, were still little at the time, they're Muslim. So he thinks now, now let me go to my people. And they're going to become Muslim to so far this is going exactly as you'd want it to go to fail over the allotted time. And who said somebody out there was an ill Islam? I call those to Islam. And all of them rejected me.
a handful, or except for one, just a handful, like a little bit. Few people that listen to my message.
And one of those was a young, poor Shepherd, orphan Shepherd, named chumps. Who is that
of what he called the law? I know, isn't his name was actually the slave of the son of the chumps. So he embraced Islam with me, everybody else rejected and the implication of the narrations that maybe one or two other people, so he's got his family, and he has an orphan Shepherd, poor orphan Shepherd, who will be allowed to go to the shops. And that's it. So he kept trying with them.
And it didn't work. And he is getting frustrated with his people. And he keeps on trying different ways. And he's and he starts mentioning his favors, you know, me, you know, my standing amongst the, you know, my nobility amongst you, I'm telling you, this man is a prophet of Allah, I'm telling you this religion is the religion of truth. They did not want to embrace Islam, not because they didn't think that to fade had a compelling argument. Why didn't they want to embrace Islam? Because they were afraid of the moral implications of embracing Islam. But what about the party? What about all the stuff that we do? So we're not going to give up all of these other things. And obviously,
certain things are haram at that point, certain things are not but you can tell this is an ethical religion that's going to require you to change your ways as a tribe. And so dose rejects to fade.
They don't reject Him as their Chief, but they reject the religion.
And to fail, said I tried for some time. And then he comes back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he's got this little orphan boy, shepherd. The only thing he has to show for himself is his father, his elderly father, his elderly mother, his wife and this little orphan child that he's coming to the prophets lie Selim ovaherero, the Allah Tada and who he says, I met the prophets like some of the first time he said, Where are you from?
I said DOS, the prophets I said, I'm said not calling to Allah NFE Dosen ahead and V higher I didn't know those had good people in it like people that had good in them, meaning people that were embracing Islam that's what he meant by that slice alone. Like, wow, okay, a child from dose. To Fail comes to the Prophet SAW Selim.
And to fate says to the Prophet, slice Allah, Ya rasool Allah, I called them to Islam.
For Hala Bala Dosen, as Xena would rebel, but dose was overcome by their adultery and their usury and interest basically their dirty practices.
They couldn't see the truth because of their practices. This message is too ethical for them and to fail says to the prophets line Salem, federal Elohim go ahead and make dua for a lot to destroy them.
Now imagine this is a chief of a tribe who's saying I tried everything with them no chance no chance ya rasool Allah make dua against them
now but I don't know the Allah Tada and who is mentioning the Prophet sly sums hands go up
Well Peter halachot dose so that's doses done. Doses destroyed right as soon as the prophets like some says Allah Allah Allah be dose O Allah destroy dose, they're going to be destroyed. Right? So Fein, raises his hands, he's ready as well for this drought against his own people because of what they did. And you can imagine how rough the rejection was, and how much he tried with them to make them embrace Islam. And the prophets like Sam said, Allah Hammadi Dosen what to be him Allahumma de dos and what to be him Allah who had the dosa what to be him Oh Allah guide DOS and bring them to me. Oh Allah guide DOS and bring them to me Oh Allah guide dose and bring them to me. Han Allah. The
prophets lie Selim was more merciful to people even than their own chief in this regard. And he turns to two fatal the Allah Allah and who and he says to him, Jerry that comic for the room and Allah waterfall could be him. Go back to your people. Call them to Allah, and be gentle with them be lenient, as you call them to ALLAH SubhanA Hotel. So the implication here is that the first time to fade when he invoked his power over them, he invoked his like his status over them like I'm your Chief, why are you rejecting this religion you know better.
So the prophets lie Selim is telling him to go back and call them with riff, call them with leniency call them with gentleness and about I don't know the Allah Tada and who is the one who narrates the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, in Allahu Rafi when you hit bereft, Allah is gentle, and Allah loves gentleness while you're at it he murder your to Allah and Allah gives through gentleness when he does not give through harshness. Allah gives through gentleness when he does not give through harshness. Subhanallah what a lesson in Dawa today.
Right? Shout someone down, humiliate them. What did you What did you achieve? Break them? What did you achieve was that the message of the Prophet sly, Salah Oberth Nana and I was not sent as one who curses in the labyrinth to Rama was sent as a mercy to the people. And that's what the prophets lie some is calling us to be as well. Now did the prophets lie. So don't ever make that against people? Yes, but it was when they were actively in place of oppressing of harming. And so the goal of the DUA is to restrict them in their harm, to hold back their harm to stop their learn to stop their oppression. That's what many of the elements say. And they say that even if that's not the sub, if
that's not the main reason, still, every single time you find the profits, I'm finally making you out against the people. It's when they have reached a certain stage in their oppression, a certain stage in their wrongdoing in their harmfulness, that they are people who put out violation after violation after violation after violation. Prophets I send them said Allahumma had the Dosen what to be him. And Allah gives their gentleness, what he does not give through harshness, go back to your people to feed, try again, try a different way. So go back to them this time, no light in your hand, nothing particularly miraculous, give them Dawa in a gentle way. So he said, so I went back to them.
And I called them again. And this time, the implication is that he spent some time with them, calling them to Islam. It's not easy. We all want the Dawa, to succeed and 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 20 minutes. It took years, right for him to get his people to come on board. But at the end of it, he had about 90 families from dose embrace Islam.
So he said so I went back to my people and basically he was between the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in Medina and his people in DOS. So he mainly was still amongst his people calling them to Islam, Abu Huraira or the Allah and who still was with him as well and DOS calling them to Islam. And he would go see the prophets lie some occasionally in El Medina. So he said so I missed brother and are hurt and then after 100 Duck, I brought 80 or 90 families with me from dos to the prophets license. So this was the answer to the dua of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allahumma de Dosen what a TB him Oh Allah guide DOS and bring them to me and so 8090 families is a big deal at that time.
Right for 8090 families to come from a different place. And to resettle in a strange place is very different.
volt And subhanAllah many of them out here when they mentioned this as a side note, they talked about the difficulty of Hijra at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, back then you don't make Hijra like this, unless you are fleeing persecution or something significant is happening. The trade routes are seasonal. You go out for this purpose and that purpose, but the idea of moving and picking up your life and being in what might become hostile territory in a moment where tribalism is rampant and people kill each other the minute that someone kills someone else's camel or does something, then you have a 40 year 50 Year War. I mean, that's the reality of Arabia
at the time. So for 90 families to come with their chief and say we're going to settle in Medina as migrants and we're going to bear the difficulties of being well hygiene at this point, is deeply profound. And so he brought with him
90 families now Subhan Allah the narrations become extremely interesting in this regard.
Some of you may have watched for those left behind I mentioned this narration in particular, so I'm going to go through it now with the context of two fatal the Allahu Taala and Jabir ibn Abdullah Hello the Allahu Taala Andrei narrates that to fame went to the Prophet sallallahu and he was somebody said the artists that Allah hella Kaffee hustlin hustlin in one manner. So the artists ALLAH, do you want to come and settle in DOS under a strong fortress, like we will protect you from everybody. If you come to dos, we'll make that the headquarters for you. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he refused because of what Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah and unsought
because what Allah has already promised the answer the unsought had the blessing of having the prophets lie Selim, not Mecca ever again, nor any other place no matter what they could offer Medina is Medina to Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the Prophet SAW Selim made his way to Medina. And that was it. He was going to stay in Medina. Now to fatale the Allahu Taala and hijab it goes on to say how Jeremiah who Raja Roman call me that one of the people that made hijra with to feed all the Allahu Taala and fetch Telugu el Medina, for America for Jazeera, so he came to Medina. He got sick, the weather, the climate, the distrust for jazzier like it overtook him with sadness. Now remember,
when the Mexicans made hijra to Medina,
Abu Bakar on the low on whom the louder the Allah, I know the scene from Israel, the law and where she says they were stretched out with their fevers, and they both look like they're about to die. And they're authoring all of this poetry about how much they miss Mecca. Medina was a difficult place for them to initially make their Hijra. Even if Medina is more beautiful, it's agriculture. The water was not necessarily healthy when you drank the water in Medina at that time you got sick, especially if you weren't used to it. Right? Think about when you go visit, we're not going to go there. Alright, but you all know where I'm going with this. I know a lot of you and go to a country
that you're unfamiliar with you drink the water for the first time what happens you're going to get sick for a week. So when people would make him out to Medina, they'd get sick. And that's how this narration is very, very interesting.
And it requires a deep study. So he got sick, and the sickness prolonged for jazz era.
He was overtaken by basically a form of sadness depression.
And what he did was for Allah Masha de Sala who for Tata Ibiza, bureaux, Gina bureaux, Jima. He barrage Emma who he took his,
he took, basically like a sharp stone and he cut off his fingertips.
So he cut off his own fingertips. And that's what the bra Jima who means the tips of his fingers. Now, when he did that, basically, the blood flowed from his hands had timeouts until he died.
This is a very interesting story. Because he's a Mahajan. He's a Muslim, a new convert. He just made hijra, and whatever his intention was when he cut off his fingers, right? I mean, that basically causes death. Right? So his situation is deeply perplexing for Otto to fade ignore all the Allahu Anhu FEMA and army so to fail the Allahu Taala and who saw him in his dream, call our hater to who has
said it says he looked beautiful right he had he had the full clothes of Jana it was a good dream. And he said but at the same time Well luckily on the day he Marathi Anya day he means that his his hands were covered. So it's really interesting like he has the clothes of Janna but his hands were covered. Well, that the only a day he fell Carla who Masana vichara book to fade asks his friends we brought from DOS, what did your Lord do to you?
What did he do for you? What happened to you at this point? For Karla Rafa rally behaved Rati economy he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that he forgave me because of my Hijra to the prophets of Allah in Salem. So this is the hopeful part of the Hadith. And he said, But Why are your hands covered? He said, because then he said to me, learn mostly hammondcare Not upset, we're not going to fix for you what you yourself have suffered.
We will not rectify what you yourself have corrupted.
Interesting. So he's in Jannah, per se, or he has he's in some sort of place that resembles a good place of Ghana. But he didn't get his hands back.
So he came to the Prophet salallahu Salam and he told the Prophet salallahu Salam, this dream. What did the prophets I said I'm doing?
What do you think the prophets lie some did?
He said Allah Hi, Maria de Allahu Maria every day he felt her alarm every day he felt like Oh Allah, and for his hands, forgive him, oh, Alon for his hands, forgive him, Oh Allah for his hands forgive him. So the prophets lie, some made your app for his hands to be restored, as well. As Pamela this hadith is one of the proofs that if a person took their own life, it is of the worst major sins, but the janazah still preyed on that person and still made for that person. So this, this hadith actually has great hope. But it also has a great warning. The great hope is that you still make dua for the person, even with the major sin, the major sin does not make you a Kaffir in Islam, right?
That's not our creed. It is of the worst of sins, but it doesn't make a person a disbeliever. So that's the hope of this is that Allah eventually forgave him. The warning is that even a person who made his way to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and underwent that journey, still, he had to face some of the consequences of his own action because of the severity of the act. Now how did their element balance Wait a minute, if you enter Jannah you enter with perfection, the correct dependent Allah knows best and of course, this is all you know extrapolations is that this is bizarre because in Bahasa you can be both rewarded and punished in weights which is the realm
between this life and the hereafter. Because this OMA also is punished in its grave sometimes that may Allah protect us from other altogether but there are people that are somewhat punished and people that are somewhat rewarded, but if you enter into Jana, then obviously when you enter into Janna, there is no more corruption of the body, no harm no ills and things of that sort. So this companion of two fatal the Allahu Anhu that he brought to Islam, Allah knows best but this was a scene perhaps from Al Barza, where he still had to face the consequences of what he did, but Allah subhanaw taala still forgave him and the meaning is very profound, that we will not correct what you
yourself have messed up. So this is an Amana your body is an amount of do not harm the body that Allah subhanaw taala has given to you. So this is one of the interesting narrations about two fatal the law of time and her with the companion that he brought with him to El Medina. Now after that two fatal the law animal says that I and my people we settled in in Medina with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And we stayed with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam until Fatah Mecca until the conquest of Mecca. And he said that when we went to the conquest of Mecca, asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ya rasool Allah, if you're if Nina Ville caffeine. Sana Sana me I'm
leaving eukroma O Messenger of Allah allow me to be the one that destroys the idol that's known as little caffeine. It's literally it's two branches, two hands that are coming out of that idol, and it was the idol of Amitabh new banana. Now I'm referring to Homer was the person who's to host to fatal the low tide and when he was one of the powerful people of Mecca, and usually the elites hosted the elites, right. And his idle little caffeine was an idol that he used to show off a lot. It was a huge idol that was made of a particular type of copper, and it had all sorts of features to it. So he asked the Prophet slice that I'm era sort of Allah allow me to be the one to remove that
idol, because other people will be removing the idols, obviously, the prophets like somebody doddle the a lot of time. So he went to that Sonam to that idol of dill, caffeine, had Eureka who so that he could burn it basically had to set a fire within it so that he could completely demolish it. And while he did that, he said, Yeah, they'll kill ya, they'll caffine last two minute Reba, deca, Mila, duna, Octoman, Umeda, deca, and haShoah to NARA Feefo, DECA. So it's a poem that he said that, oh, they'll caffeine, we are not from your slaves. We proceeded you to this world, and I am the one who has put fire into your belly. Why? Because they used to have all these superstitions that if you
harm the idols or if you don't honor the idols, that they're going to cause all sorts of horrible things to happen to you. And so there's something symbolic as well about Kinley
In the fire within the idle and destroying that idle from within, where they used to say that if you harm this idle if you don't honor this idle, you're going to develop all sorts of diseases and certain things are going to happen to you. So he said, after fetac Maccha a come to mind Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam Mahuta COVID I stayed with the Prophet sallallaahu salam until he passed away, so I went back with the Prophet SAW Selim until he passed away. Now so Hanalei usually his story ends with Ebola and all the Allah Tada No, but it continues. He said, So Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Taala and who appointed me as one of the warriors one of the chiefs against to lay her sad.
Now, does anyone know who to lay? How sad Has
anyone heard this name? So you who's the most famous false prophet after the Prophet slice on the person who declared Prophet and killed many Muslims and was was known for his brutality. Muslim al Qaeda today
is a man who also claimed prophethood Okay, well listen to this because it gets very interesting. He claimed prophethood he fought against the Muslims and then he repented and became Muslim and then became a majority Sevilla. Very interesting character. So you actually say to lay out all the Allahu Taala and who which is strange Subhan Allah would happen with him in some of the scholars they debated well what happens to a person who apostate it and didn't just apostate became a false prophet and then repented and came back and has sunnah Islam Islam was actually firm, very interesting and unique, unique case, but today was a man who claimed prophethood and fought against
Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Taala and who for some time, and then went on to become a Mujahid FISA Barilla afterwards, so, two fatal the law and who says so, I entered into, you know, into the battle with Taneja and Allah azza wa jal gave us victory. And then came the Battle of Al yamamah. Now, the Battle of Yamama was the battle in which many many companions died and this was of course what catalyzed the compilation of the Quran
once again into the last half of Isaiah though the Allahu Taala and why because so many her father were going to be killed by Macedo al Qaeda in this particular battle of Alia mama, so Fatale, the Allah Tada and who continues to be with the Prophets why some he continues to be with obec it will the Allah Tada and hope. And here you will see his last miracle this man of the Allahu Taala animal in the Battle of Alia mama, he goes out in the Battle of yo mama and his oldest son is Ahmed. So he has it been to fail even so his oldest son is named after his father, which is common at the time, right? So he's with his oldest son. And basically they're going from battle to battle now. So he
went from being the chief, the poet to just being a warrior now in the life of Abu Bakr, Siddiq, or the Allahu Taala and,
And subhanAllah another interesting dream. So you had the dream of his companion, where he saw what happened to his companion. And now you have another dream. He wakes up on the way to earlier mama.
And he tells his son and he tells the people around him. He said, I saw an interesting dream last night. So listen to this dream car or a two row idea, or a two camera see Holyoake waha Rajim in from Utah, Iran. What can Nam Ratan at Kolodny? If he found jihad?
What can ebony Yat Labony Taliban have Ethan for healer benei ya know? So he said that I saw in this dream that my head was cut. So I was beheaded.
But he saw that as he was beheaded a bird came out of his mouth.
Now the Prophet slice and I'm said that when a person passes away,
that the soul leaves from the eyes Toby I hope and bustle and eyes follow the soul as it is leaving me Eliza to grant us her story time may Allah grant us a good ending Allama Amin. So he says, so in this dream, my head was was cut. And then a bird came out of my mouth and it flew. And then this bird entered into a woman.
And then my son in the dream, so he's now basically in the bird and he's in this woman, and he said, My son is looking around for me.
And he can't find me.
What an interesting dream Subhan Allah.
So he said, What do you all think the dream means? What do you all think the dream means?
So no one was able to answer it in particular, right? So they said Hira, we hope it's good in sha Allah to Allah. So he then went ahead and he gave the on top seat of his own dream, the explanation of his own dream. So he said, As for the first one,
how perazzi my had been cut. What does it mean? What do you think it means? That he was that he's going to die or say that he's going to be martyred in this
battle over the Amana and we'll say llama was a brutal, brutal, brutal man Subhan Allah He was someone who used to crucify. We used to make examples out of the people who would kill will save them as a brutal man. So I see myself being martyred in this battle. He said, As for the bird, what do you think it is?
What do you think it is?
His soul because the prophets lice I mentioned that the souls of the shahada are in birds that are hanging from chandeliers that are suspended from the throne of Oklahoma. They go out and they fill themselves with the water from the river banks have an agenda and some of what Allah has given them from the food agenda, they roam through, and then they come back and they situate themselves in these beautiful chandeliers. So the souls of the shahada are in the bodies of birds and not like the birds that you know Subhan Allah there in the bodies of birds may Allah azza wa jal allow us to have that blessing of a shahada Allah I mean, so he said that was the second part so the first one is
that I'm going to be killed the second one is that this is my soul. What about the entrance into the woman
this is the hardest one of them all. He says that as for my entering into the body of that woman, he says that well Mara to ordered oats, fennel, fie, ha, this is the earth and I will be buried in it once again. So as I came into this world, now I'm going back to this world men Ha ha, Conoco Murphy, Hannah Ido. Okay, so I've returned back to the earth.
And he said, As for my son,
I feel like this means that he's not going to achieve shahada with me, and he's going to be looking around for me after the battle.
So you can imagine Subhanallah, his son hearing this dream,
and his son is terrified at what he just heard. But this was still fatal the allot of time and who this was the dream that he had. So the Battle of Yamama takes place.
I'm going to fail, or the allow Tyler and Homer. He was looking for his father, the whole bout trying to stay near him. And obviously fathers and sons fought next to each other, they tried to keep with each other. This was the habit of battle at the time that tribes stay together, families stay together, as they go into the battle. And at some point in the battle, as he got rough, he was losing sight of faith. And every once in a while to fatal the Allahu taala. And who would wave to his son to let him know where he was in the battle and would call out to Him and then they would reunite, they would reunite, they would reunite and they kept on fighting and kept on fighting, and
they kept on fighting. And the battle became extremely fierce. And he lost his father to fatal the low tide and who, and then he found him murdered in the battlefield, exactly, as he said.
And he was so sad. And subhanAllah, something that happened to him as well as that his he lost his right hand in that battle armor, or the Allahu Anhu the son lost his right hand. So he lost his father and he lost his right hand. And he was extremely sad. So it was exactly the dream that his father had, that he was martyred and he couldn't find his father Subhan Allah and he was saying that my son would not be granted shahada with me in this battle that I'm going to be granted shahada, but not my son in this battle. So he was very sad. I mean, he was extremely
remorseful missing his father and obviously as well lost his lost a significant part of his right hand. And due to his sadness, he wasn't eating he wasn't. He wasn't being himself and listen to what model they allow and who said Tim, Amato, the law and who told him that I see you said, I see you down. He said wala Hema Phil call me hudon Barbu Phil Jannetty LA and he said, I swear by Allah that there is no one amongst us who are part of him is already in Jannah except for you. Meaning your hand is already in Jana. So you're talking about you miss your father and obviously your father was killed and he wanted to be able to protect his father. He wanted to be with his father and Shahada.
That was what he had envisioned. And he's saying your hand has already gone to Jana. And there is no one amongst us who already a piece of them is in Gemini except for you. So go forth.
And subhanAllah his son, I'm referring to Pharaoh the Allahu Anhu Amma who they used to call yagna the newer oh son of the possessor of light or son of the possessor of light because that was the famous nickname of to Pharaoh the Allah Tada and who, and so oh son of the possessor of light. He went forth in the Battle of a yarmulke fighting with one hand and he was martyred in the Battle of Yarmouk. So he was a Shaheed the son of a Shaheed to fate, may Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with them, and joined his father. In the blessing of obviously the seen that the prophets lie Selim had prophesized for the Shahadat May Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with them both and be pleased with
the Companions who came before us. Allahumma Amin. So this
This was the story of two fatal the Allahu taala. And when shahada and his son Ahmed went to fatal the Allahu Tada and who he or two other sons, one of them named their bill, that Bill had begun to fade and inherited into fail and they both died as Muslims. Both of his parents died as Muslims. His father actually seems to have outlived him despite being a very old man. And his father narrates to a Hadith from the prophets like Selim, one of them praying behind the prophets like some slotted fidget and describing the subject of the Prophet slice and I'm when he recited that hajj. And also he said, I prayed with the Prophets lie Selim or I heard the Prophet sites and recite certain najem
and then he made such that and I made such that with the Prophet salallahu Salam. So the only two narrations he has are the narrations about the prophets like some such that when he is reading the Quran, And subhanAllah to feed your armor a dose, it'll the Allahu Anhu does not narrate a single Hadith from the Prophet sallallahu and he was not one why, because he died too early. Right? I mean, the companions that died in your mama did not live to be able to narrate traditions on behalf of the prophets like Selim and his son, Ahmed, who was the primary Narrator On behalf of his father died in Yarmouk in the feed off of Omaha, Pablo, the Allahu taala, and who was one of the most famous
battles that took place in the feed off of amaro the Allahu anhu, and a sham.
But with all that being said, and this is the most powerful and profound part about this man, every single time you recite and Abby, hooray Lazzaro, the Allahu taala. And he has a share of that reward.
And this is one of the greatest lessons Subhanallah that you take from these lives. The one who causes good, the one who calls too good, the one who facilitates good is like the one who does good.
Not a single Hadith from him, not a single Hadith from his children. But he inspires the man to become Muslim, that will narrate over 5000 Hadith from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and gives us access to the prophets lie Selim in a way that we would otherwise have absolutely no access. And all of that is to his credit. And that really makes you think, subhanAllah this man who you hear such little, you know, in terms of narrations about himself, but the Allahu Taala and who look at the profound impact that he had on the history of Islam. And think about yourself when you feel like you know, I'm not doing these great things. I'm not doing these great things. I'm not
doing these great things. I mentioned the Subhan Allah when Sheikh Muhammad Sharif Rahim Allah passed away, and one of the sentiments was you know, subhanAllah everyone was celebrating Sheikh Mohammed Al Sharif Rahim Allah, everyone was talking about, you know, this man and the impact that he had on so many people, it's all over. There was a sentiment like, wait, are people even going to really know when I pass away? Is it just gonna be like one of those quiet Janaza and only a few people? Doesn't matter? Because Allah azza wa jal writes down the impact of a person. It doesn't matter if the Muslims don't say the name of Tofail. Allah writes down the editor of Tofail. Every
time we say the name of Ebola, while the Allahu Taala and who and when a person looks into these biographies, they should see where they fit in the scheme of the Dawa to Allah and to His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with two fatal the a lot of times and who and reward him for his service to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah azza wa jal reward him for his shahada May Allah Subhana Allah Allah reward him for his Dawa? May Allah subhanho gather us with him and with the companions and with our beloved prophet Sallallahu Sallam and his family in the highest level for the dose of Allah, Allah Allah Amin Charlottetown. I'll take
a couple of questions before the advent of Asia and next week is obviously the day of alpha and sha Allah to Allah may Allah azza wa jal allow us to witness it. So we're not going to have class next week. Inshallah we'll resume the week after and we'll go into the life of Abu Hurayrah or the Allahu Taala and homebuilding offered to Pharaoh the Alon so questions
What happened to the staff of light? I don't know. But it's not in a museum in Turkey
so if you find it there
because you know, they got like the staff of Moses and yeah,
But we don't know what happened to the staff. Yeah.
I don't know.
I mean, it seems to come from Clifford like the same so I'll have to look into it in sha Allah Tiana.
So who narrates about the life of to fail Ebola the Allahu taala. And, and then Jabba didn't have the lateral the Lavon so jabber clearly was close to it'll fail the alarm when Jabba narrates, obviously, many, many Hadith of the prophets is only talks about his story. So he narrates a lot of the stories of those that came from the outside. He narrates the hedge of the prophets. I send them he narrates many of the delegations and will food that came to the Prophet sites. And I'm Joe
admiralty law and who is usually the one that keeps those biographies?
Any sisters? Okay, yeah
great question. So if you as you can see on the map and the Divan is a huge region, right so it's not like a tiny place right? So is there any narration or an interaction between two fatal the law and when the Christians have nonchalant? No, obviously there's a huge Christian presence in Yemen at the time.
And it's very interesting that the prophets lie some sent more Earth or the Allahu Anhu to Yemen. Right
because of a scholarship and that actually shows you the intentions that the prophets lie some had for them he didn't send hardly little the Allah and we sent more Avila the Allah no to Yemen right to call them to Islam and emphasizing to hate and emphasizing you know, the rules of Islam that would really be familiar to them as people with the book and to move them forward.
All have the hadith of Oriental the Aloha Anwar in the latter part in last few years of the prophets liasons life
so after hunt duck, you have the ship that came from Yemen, you have a ship that came from Abyssinia to Medina, to the Prophet SAW Salem. So we talked about when Musa Sharia law, the law and he was on that that boat that came from a particular area as well as those that came from from from Habesha including Jaffa or the law and so after 100 There was a sense of establishing things in the in the community of the profit slice I'm there in Medina.
Alright, one more question. Yeah.
So what was the purpose of the prophets? I'm sharing the names of the hypocrites with her they follow the alonside and who Allah knows best, there could be many different reasons, many different wisdoms and could be the
you know, again some of the those that would observe them, how are they follow the law on who would act so that they could take instruction from how he interacted with people could be the granting of safety to her they for himself, that that wisdom is not known to us? Yeah, all right. Yes.
So, to fail to fail the Allahu Anhu was murdered in the Battle of Yamama which was the battle against Maceda ma El Cap that must say the mother liar who is the main false prophet after the Prophet sighs
Were any other children? No. So other the other children al Hadith and Durban are simply mentioned that they they died and they had supposedly died as Muslims but there's nothing that's mentioned. Other than I'm going to fade who was murdered after his father used to fight alongside? Right does that come a little later? Sharla to Anna. Next week will be an alpha male that has accepted from us. And then the week after that we'll go into the story of Ebola or the law of terror and Hispanic long hamburger shadowline Island stuff stockbroker or two would equal Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah Ricketts.
