So have behaved or sell them to steam and cathedra. So tonight in shuttler Tada we're going to continue with probably one of the most epic people that we will cover in the history of Islam. A man by the name of a robotic Masamoto, the Allahu taala. And who, but before we talk about regada, just to situate him in sha Allah Tala and what we have been speaking about, we've been speaking about more or less the family of Anas ibn Malik, while the Allahu Anhu Hardy more Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And we started off with also Elaine, the mother and I will call her the stepfather and us and then we covered the aunts and the uncles. So we went to on haram Bismil hand the aunt and

00:00:45--> 00:01:26

of course we mentioned when we showed on the chart that all of you should have memorized by now. You know the relationship that the husband have on haram Vince Minahan, the second husband is regarded to be Osama double the LA hotel and home because Haram are the Allahu Anhu lost her husband and her son in the Battle of AFIT. They were both martyred in the battle, as well as her younger brother haram and vindman Han, who was martyred in Merona. So she lost everyone that was close to her and this is the man that would come forth to marry her. And so about double the law and who becomes the uncle in law of anesthesia, the Allahu Taala and the brother in law of Amsterdam and all the Allahu

00:01:26--> 00:02:06

anha and fits into this beautiful family tree that we are covering today in sha Allah Allah. Now there is one more person that's left in the family of NSL, the Allahu Tada and one that is going to be al Bara even Malik Radi Allahu anhu, who will cover next week in sha Allah Tana And then we will pause for the month of July in sha Allah Tana. So we're going to cover next week at the Bharat Malik and then we'll pause for the month of July. Obviously we have the hedger and then we'll go into inshallah Tada at that point would have covered 80 episodes, we'll move on into 81 Inshallah, in August so, before we get started, if I can remind everyone mashallah, we have a lot of young

00:02:06--> 00:02:37

children here, they must have come with somebody. So they're all welcome. And we'd love to have them here. But please make sure they're not running around. It's dangerous because of the equipment and obviously can be distracting and shallow. So we have the mommy in the room and the daddy in the room. Please do make sure that your children your younger children are with you, and shout Allah to Allah. And don't look around at them and act like they're not yours, okay? I see somebody like I don't know who they are. You all know who your children are, inshallah. Tada. So please keep your children with you. We don't want the camera falling on top of them

00:02:38--> 00:03:26

will have to have you sign liability forms otherwise, alright. So regardless of masama, sort of the Allahu anhu, who is irregardless of Masonic first and foremost, are about the techno summit in case his father is a summit. His mother is a woman by the name of Cora, to Lorraine Cora, to the 18th. And he was considered a leader from the sub tribe of huzzah rush. We talked about these two tribes that came to the city of Yathrib and settled the city of Yathrib before Islam, and those two tribes that make up the unsought are OHSs, and huzzah Raj. He is considered one of the leaders of the tribe of huzzah Raj. His father was one of the leaders of the tribe of an husbands and he passed away as

00:03:26--> 00:04:11

well in the previous wars and battles that took place. So robanda assumes a leadership position right away. And so that's why we're going to find some amongst those early Muslims that were there in Mecca. And that met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Hyderabad is considered of the class of those leaders from the unsought who have covered we've covered us out of Endura. We talked about Saddam in Aruba. We talked about Saudi and Iran. We talked about those leaders, that class of leaders he's considered amongst them and he is amongst the very first people from Medina to embrace Islam. If you remember, there were two br tilaka buzz there are two pledges that were taken from the

00:04:11--> 00:04:51

people of Medina to the Prophet slice Allah. You had the first pledge with a smaller group of people, this tiny group of men, which is ironically called br Tulisa, the pledge of women. I'll see if anyone knows why it was called that in a minute shall. So that's the first pledge. They actually saw 12 men that take this pledge with the profit slice of them. They go back to Medina with Musab Radi Allahu Anhu. Musab teaches people Islam, they spread Islam throughout Medina, then they come back to the prophets. I send them as a larger group the next year in Hajj over 70 and they take the full day I would the prophets lie Selim one year later. So he's from those people who actually takes

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

both Beyonce with the profit slice alone. And something I didn't mention early on was that, you know, we talked about the turmoil that existed in yesterday.

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

that existed in the city, from blank from the war that just took place that killed off so many of the seniors. And that actually is what many historians say the reason why you had this small group of leaders that were in Mecca looking for some sort of guidance or inspiration, or way out of this madness that they were in. So it's actually very interesting. They didn't exactly know why they were there. Remember, there was an aura of mysticism and religion that surrounded Mecca. It wasn't till Hey, there wasn't monotheism. But this idea that Mecca was a place and Hajj was some sort of a religious pilgrimage where we can seek inspiration from the idols in the overall environment and we

00:05:36--> 00:06:18

can come to some place of good so bathers in that group of people who took that pledge with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Why was it called they actually sat because the Arabs called a pledge that did not involve a military components obey are they actually sir? That's what they used to call it, okay, did not require a military component at the time because obviously the men were the ones that would fight in battle, right. So that's why they call it the br Two Nissa. The second one was the larger Bay on which was that they took in the profit slice on and pledged to defend the profits by some as well. So rabada was present in both of those. Now, riguarda Radi Allahu Taala and

00:06:18--> 00:07:03

home. All of his siblings would become Muslim after him. His first wife, Jamila BISAZZA, became Muslim because of him so all of his siblings as well as wife became Muslim through him. And he had a son as well through his first wife and when he'd been a robot who went on to become one of his students and the narrator of Hadith as well, so all of his siblings become Muslim through him. His wife his child, embrace Islam as well regarded all the Allahu Anhu is described with being you know, a person of prominent qualities. So I'm gonna actually read the description but we will come. Our lien will hammer Katha Sherry shahidul Haber, young Lorena ra E. Robertson, what our item. This is

00:07:03--> 00:07:39

his description in Arabic. So who is he? He was a man from Yemen, very tall, he was exceedingly black. And this is going to come into play with a racist encounter a prominent a very famous racist encounter he has later on so he was exceedingly black. But he wasn't from Abyssinia. He was from the black Yemenis. So there were people from Yemen that were not from habitat. They were distinguished not being from Abyssinian, but being from Yemen. But he had exceedingly black skin. He had a prominent height,

00:07:40--> 00:08:07

prominent features so they said everything about him was prominence, his forehead, his hair, his nose, his eyes, everything about him was prominent and was was was beautiful, exceedingly handsome. But at the same time, it's interesting because they said Yamla, Elena II hear all the time about our that when he walked into a room, whoever looked at him, was overtaken by both admiration and fear.

00:08:09--> 00:08:46

Right. So he had an imposing presence when he walked into a room and that's part of his leadership, right? That he was a chief, everyone immediately yielded the room to him, while the Allahu Taala Anhu. That's how imposing the appearance he had was praised for his beauty, praise for his eloquence, praise for his knowledge, praise for his wisdom, praised for the person he was he was praised as a person that would negotiate truces before Islam and after Islam. He was the person that would negotiate truces, and that everyone could come to the table through he accompanied the prophets lie some in every battle. So he is Bedri is from the people better, which is of course a

00:08:46--> 00:08:57

noble quality in and of itself. He's also one of those the prophets. I'm interested to write the revelation, Khattab and ye, so he's one of those that wrote the Quran as it was revealed.

00:08:58--> 00:09:39

He's also one of the few who funds and we'll talk about this, someone who actually memorize the entirety of the Quran in the time of the Prophet SAW Salem. Okay, so he memorized its entirety. And we'll talk about how rare that was, at least from the prominent leaders of the unsought at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So let's kind of go through his life with the Prophet slicin through his eyes. So he narrates the pledge that he had with the Prophet sly Salam. And he was one of the original group and then he was one of the 12 Nakaba, one of the 12 leaders that were appointed from Medina from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he narrates and Buhari of

00:09:39--> 00:10:00

course has this narration is one of the first narrations so he had Buhari and there are about a dozen assignments. Well, the Allahu Anhu I can assure he did better on Oahu. I had a Nakaba Leila tell acaba that about the tunnel summit and he was one of those who attended the Battle of better and he is one of those who was appointed as a leader on the night of America and Rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa salam ah,

00:10:00--> 00:10:48

Oh, well hello hola hola resolver Terminus hobby by Rooney Allah Toshiko. Billahi che wala test Rico when it doesn't when it's up to a radical one attack to be both tan and tough Taruna who been a decomp What are Julie come? While Tara su FEMA roof Thurman with an income for Andrew Annaleigh woman Asaba and daddy cache and for Uber for dunya for Hua kefan, la who woman Asaba and daddy Kashi and for my Cetara hola for who eat for Hua in Allah insha Allah and who are insha Allah Who Fabiana who Allah Dalek, it's a long Hadith, its presence in multiple places, and Sahil Behati he said that we took a pledge with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon 12 things. Number one that we

00:10:48--> 00:10:57

would not join anything in worship alongside Allah subhanho wa Taala I don't want to make the parents uncomfortable please inshallah Tada if it's possible because I can look at

00:10:58--> 00:11:01

if someone can help help her insha Allah to Allah.

00:11:04--> 00:11:06

You got it. All right, exactly.

00:11:07--> 00:11:11

So he said, we took allegiance with the Prophets lie Selim over 12 Things

00:11:12--> 00:11:53

are not over 12 things over six things. Number one, that we would not join in worship anyone besides Allah subhana wa Tada with Allah. So we worship Allah alone, that we would not steal, that we would not commit illegal or engage in any illegal sexual behavior, that we would not kill our children, that we would not accuse an innocent person, meaning we would do away with slander, and that we would not disobey when order to do a good deed. So this is really beautiful, because it shows you the moral foundation of Islam being given to people to take back to Medina, this is before filk, right before jurisprudence, and before the prayers become defined, and the laws become defined. This

00:11:53--> 00:12:32

is your pledge, this is what I want you to go back to Medina with, you're not going to worship anyone besides Allah, you're not going to steal anymore. You're not going to commit Zina, you're not going to accuse people or gossip or slander, you are not going to to be disobedient in order to do a good deed and you're not going to kill your children. Because imagine, because imagine that was of course, a prominent feature of those societies at the time. The prophets, like some said, Whoever does this will be rewarded by Allah, and whoever does any of the above, and is punished in this world for it, then that punishment will be an expiation for that sin. Meaning if you commit one of

00:12:32--> 00:13:10

those things, those major sins, you'll you're punished for it in this life. And if you're punished for it in this life, then it's an expiation for you. And if you're not punished for it in this life, then it's up to Allah, Allah will either forgive you or Allah will hold you accountable and abide by the law and who says so we took an allegiance with the Prophet saw some upon that. And this is in multiple chapters, but Kaithal Ubay or mama NAS who did on Saturday, I took that one because what the better, I mean, they're like 20 chapters in the body that the shows up in the same Hadith gets repeated over and over and over again as the moral foundation of Islam as given from the Prophets

00:13:10--> 00:13:54

lie some to these companions. And then another narration he said about the Allahu Anhu but yeah, now Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah seminary what Clara Phil Usili Well, ursery well, ma'am shortly when macro he what Allah known as the camera, Allah who were in a coma will help the heighth Hakuna learn a half Aloma to that said, We pledged to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to hear and obey, in times of ease and in times of hardship, when we felt energetic and when we were tired, and that we would not content or we would not disobey whoever we were entrusted to. And we would stand firm upon the truth. And we would not fear the blame of the blamers we would do

00:13:54--> 00:14:39

what was required from the truth and we would not fear the blame of the blamers. All right, so this is sort of a foundation that he has from the Prophet sallallahu. It was now move over to Medina when people from Mecca start to migrate and escape persecution and make their way to Medina. robanda is one of the main people who's in charge of setting up shelters. So I want you to think about this that as the news of the hijra, is coming forward that you're going to have all these people that are going to come from Mecca, and settle this very fragile city of yesterday, which is going to be Medina, then you started to have a situation where you needed like a temporary holding place. So

00:14:39--> 00:14:59

robot that actually goes and sets up all the shelters, along with some group of the companions to host them as they make their way to Medina, in the first place. And then he starts to participate in facilitating the heads of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to Medina as well, the prophets I said I'm also interested about that

00:15:00--> 00:15:44

with being the one to negotiate the truces with the Jewish tribes in Medina, so battle the Allahu Anhu was the narrator of those truces, and those treaties that were then taken with the Jewish tribes that existed in Medina, because the prophets I said I'm entrusted him of all people to negotiate those tribes. The Prophet saw some also pointed him as a as a cat collector. And he said, I remember the prophets lie Selim told me, he said, Yarrabah, attacked Allah Oba fear Allah, with regards to this wealth, this is the charity of people. And he said, do not use any of it for your personal needs. And remember, if you take any Durham, any part of this charity, that it will testify

00:15:44--> 00:16:22

against you on the Day of Judgment in our law, Donald the Allahu anhu, he said that I began to tremble when I heard that from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And I never wanted to be appointed after that, as a leader over any two people are responsible for the wealth of anybody, meaning I wished from that hadith that shows you his level of piety I wish the prophets lies on will never appoint me for anything. And then I never be in charge of any two people. And then I never have to take care of money, which is why you find that Allah kept putting him in that place, every time or bother and his life does not want to be in a position. It gets forced on him, because he's a

00:16:22--> 00:17:02

man of integrity and leadership and honor. His nobility is so prominent that people are like, no, it's you. It's you, it's you. And he constantly tries to push away these positions in these roles. And the people constantly thrust him towards it. One of the things that you know, one of the beautiful ways that he's written about, you know, the SIOP. They say that when it was in times of peace or battle, the Allahu Anhu was the most patient of teachers. He used to go and he used to teach a philosopher the Quran. So you had all these people that were homeless, temporarily homeless, some people brought them water, some people brought them food, or bottle, the Allahu Anhu would go

00:17:02--> 00:17:46

around the Meza and he'd sit with them and he teach them the Quran is the most patient of teacher, he was the most wise when it came to negotiating truces. At night. He was an ascetic like no other like he was a worshiper, he was an avid he used to cry, he used to devote himself at night. And in battle, he was a lion that you did not want to be anywhere near. So he had this combination of qualities that was very rare to find in anybody and of course, becomes a rare quality in general, to find. And as we said, he's one of the Huerfano now, I want you to think about this that, you know, as the Quran is coming down, obviously, some people are memorizing here, some people are memorizing

00:17:46--> 00:18:31

there. And over time, people are becoming a fourth. Right? But the Quran has been revealed throughout this period of 23 years. roba is one of those people who immediately memorizes anything that comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he dedicates that to his memory. And so there were five of five from the from the unsolved five who are far from the unsolved people who memorize the Quran from the side that were most prominence. So these are the five okay, it's about the tableau Summit. It is more of bingeable it is a you Al Ansari, it is aboda Semarang rabada ebube.

00:18:33--> 00:18:35

With the RDA I'm missing one

00:18:36--> 00:19:13

over your vocab or baby Okay, so again five people who memorize the Quran from the Tsar, and will sort of the authorities of the Quran from the unsavoury Okay, so I said, it was a lot of assignments Murad bingeable, about a yoga I'm sorry, a Buddha and obey ImmunoCAP so these are the five who Gemma on Quran that collected the Quran. In the time of the Prophet slice, I'm from the unsought and sort of were the teachers of all of the Quran teachers amongst them. So that's a story, right? He's a worshiper, he's a warrior in battle. He's a negotiator. He's a leader.

00:19:14--> 00:19:59

And when the prophets lie, some passes away, he becomes a judge under aboubaker. So they call the Allahu taala. And a soldier, a military leader, constantly participates in battle after battle, and established his cities. They also said that robot or the allowance and I knew had a unique way of architecture, he could build things. So many of the famous masjids that were left behind were actually planned by robot doll, the Allahu Taala animals. So they used to go back to him when it came to the construction of those Masada. Now, as we said he married on haram Radi Allahu anhu, after the Battle of it right after the Battle of a hit, and she prays

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

him for the way that he would treat her son.

00:20:04--> 00:20:31

That that that was from a previous marriage. So she praised his character, she praised him a lot. She praised his qualities and his morals. And of course, that's also something the testimony of the wife towards this husband Roboto, the Allahu taala. And so he has a lot of beautiful traits. But I really, I rushed through the Sierra part to get to, you know, some of the roles that he plays then, after the prophets, like some passes away.

00:20:32--> 00:20:43

And you might have noticed that the title of this lecture is a man by 1000 men, a man who was worth 1000 men. And that title was given to him by all maternal health hospital, the Allahu taala. And

00:20:44--> 00:20:54

now, you know, you remember, when we spoke about our model, the Allahu Anhu. And the role model, the Allahu Anhu is a man who is very difficult to impress.

00:20:55--> 00:21:32

He is not easily impressed. If I'm gonna call Bob is impressed by you. That means that you have something exceptional about you. He's not easily impressed by people. And so when a lot of praise is someone, you know, people really took that seriously. And the praise that he gave or rather, was during his Khilafah there was a request for some reinforcements for some of the battles against the Romans, and armor and a bob sent or bada. And he said, Listen, I'm sending with you a man he gave her about a note he said, Give this to generally said, Look, this is a man be Alfie Rodger, this man that's giving you the note or about Osama, he's worth 1000 men.

00:21:33--> 00:22:07

I'm sending him with you. And victory will always come on this man's hand. And that's exactly what happened. by little the Allahu Taala animal goes forth. And victory would come on his hand over and over and over again. He comes back from a battle. He sets up shop once again, a judge in the community, a Hakim, someone who's very wise, a teacher of Quran, and was consulting in some of the most pivotal moments in Islam. Then I'm gonna Cotabato. The Allahu Anhu was sent a letter by the Emir of a sham. So the the

00:22:09--> 00:22:18

what's the best word here, the general who was in charge of a sham at the time, greater Syria, and that was more valuable, the lower I know somewhere Alia sends a letter to Alma Ababa, the low Island says, Listen,

00:22:19--> 00:22:23

you know, a lot of people have become Muslim in a very short time.

00:22:24--> 00:22:49

Now, here's a question that's very important to answer. Did the Muslims used to force people to convert to Islam? No, it's actually one of the prominent features of these battles is there was no forced conversion. So like the Persian Empire was defeated by the Muslims and Muslims remained a minority there for a very, very long time. No force conversions. But the, you know, the comparison of Islam,

00:22:50--> 00:23:09

to these other systems and empires and manifestations of religion worked with all sorts of things. And of course, the incentive to become Muslim living under Muslim rule, all that, you know, put together, people are becoming Muslim, in rapid numbers, right, large groups of people are becoming Muslim.

00:23:10--> 00:23:45

And so more Alia says, Look, we're, you know, we're in the midst of the Roman Empire, all these people are converting to Islam. And there aren't many companions here. There aren't many Sahaba here. And the point that he was making is he said these people need teachers. They need people to teach them the Quran. They need people to teach them halal and haram, they need people to teach them the religion they need the source. They're fresh in Islam, they need the source. And of course the Sahaba didn't want to leave Medina they loved Medina. Okay, generally speaking, you want to set up shop and Medina, understandably so. So I'm gonna make up a little the Allahu Anhu response, and he

00:23:45--> 00:24:29

says, Okay, fine, I'm gonna send you someone who's well versed in the Quran. So he calls for a gathering of five people who are these five, the five prominence on Tsar who knew the Quran, he calls her Bada, Ebola, you may or may have no cab and Abuja and he says, Listen, the people of a sham, greater Syria, they're asking for someone to teach them the Quran. They're asking for one of the companions who was especially, you know, grounded in the Quran that can teach us the Quran, teach them the rulings teach some jurisprudence. And I need some, I need some of you to go do that. So he said to them, I will model the law and who said I need amongst you five, I need you to pick

00:24:29--> 00:25:00

three of you to go and basically, you know, greater Syria, of course, a sham means Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria in current day, right? When we say a shot, we mean that whole area, you know, so I need to send three of you there. And you can sort of map out amongst yourselves who's going to teach what region but choose amongst yourselves and if you have to cast lots but just I need three of you to go to a sham because you have a bunch of people embracing Islam there. So they said to model the law

00:25:00--> 00:25:35

on hold. They said, There is no need for you to, you know, to do any sort of selection process. I know saying hedge lottery is too soon right now I don't want to do that to like hurt people's feelings, right? Like, we don't have to do any of that stuff. There's no draw here. We'll figure it out amongst ourselves. They said it's very easy. They said Astroboy human on Saudi, he's an old man. He's very elderly. It doesn't make sense to send him out to a sham right now in the midst of all of this. So about you broke the law and who can stay in Medina and of course, who was the host of the prophets lie some in Medina, probably the person will talk about when we resumed in August in sha

00:25:35--> 00:26:18

Allah to Allah the first Sahabi will cover beautiful man, elderly man and they said you can exclude him. They said as for obey of no cab obey is sick. Obey was very ill at the time he came down with some sort of disease, they didn't even know if he was going to make it. So they said, We don't want to send him there and then he dies on the way it's not fair to him and it's not going to achieve the purpose. So basically, the other three robanda More than a Buddha they said, We will go so amaro the Allahu Taala and who said the three of them to take a sham to teach the people of a sham roba went to Palestine with his wife on haram Okay, it'll be hola hola Anna so Aruba and his wife on haram go

00:26:18--> 00:26:20

and they settle in Philistine in Palestine

00:26:21--> 00:26:31

and Allah will the Allah Allah was teaching the people in Palestine the people of Palestine are sending to Ramona ricotta glowing reviews remember our model the Allahu Anhu was a tough

00:26:32--> 00:27:14

assessor of leaders amuse so I'm not all the law on who would go directly to the people and ask them Are your Amir's treating you Okay, are you being dealt with justly? Are people teaching you right? Is there any confusion? What are they doing? And so they loved it, oh, God, little the lawn. And so there is a dilemma with the ABA, which was that he was a man of battle, but he's also a man who teaches, and sometimes those two things, you know, come into, you know, come into play where you have to make one one choice, you have to choose one over the other. So sometimes they come into conflict, do we send them out in battle? Or do we let them keep teaching the people? And eventually

00:27:14--> 00:27:52

SubhanAllah urbandoor, the Allahu Anhu became sort of a school of heft by himself, he produced all sorts of father and Palestine, people memorize the Quran and Palestine, I was thinking about the Subhanallah imagine how many people are her father in Palestine, because of her garden. Like how many people he taught that then taught people that then taught people how many, you know, places that were established? Because essentially, you know, heft becomes a culture, right? How many places that were established as places where people learn the Quran and Palestine, that then went on to teach people that then went on to teach people and allow that to the law and who is credited as the

00:27:52--> 00:28:11

first person who really created that culture and Philistine where people learn the Quran from him and then taught the Quran afterwards. And of course, when you memorize the Quran, and you have a sonnet, you have a chain, many of the people of Palestine will have a chain that goes back to Nevada to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam well the Allahu Taala and so an amazing accomplishment in and of itself.

00:28:12--> 00:28:16

But about a little the Allahu Anhu is also a man of strong opinion

00:28:17--> 00:28:45

and he gets into a dispute with the jet with the governor Okay, who's more Alia, so are bad and morale we get into an argument a dispute about all the allowance data and who says tomorrow we have all the law I know after that dispute, he says Listen, Larissa Kino Kathy auto, I'm not going to live in a place with you. I'm done with you. It got intense. People had these types of arguments. They're human beings. He said I'm done with you. I'm going back to Medina.

00:28:46--> 00:28:56

So he gets into an argument with more Alia says you and I, we let's go and see Alden Whitehead. We can't live in the same place together. I'm going back to Medina.

00:28:57--> 00:29:37

Amato, the Allahu Anhu suddenly sees it oh, by the pop up in Medina. Now again, if you know ALMA will the Allah I know in the way he didn't like, What didn't I send you over there? What are you doing over here? You know, like that's all muddled the law on who was a man of great justice, but he was also a man of order structure, not not leaving the community vulnerable, what's going to happen? He could have become very severe. But instead, he sees him and he says, what happened? Why are you here? Why are you back in Medina? You're supposed to be in a shop where I sent you. And he told them that Maori and I had an argument and I told him how you and I can't live in the same place. I've got

00:29:37--> 00:29:59

to go you stay here I've got to go. So our model the Allahu Anhu said to him, it or dare go back to your place but then listen to what he says it's so beautiful. He says cop bahala who Oregon Lisa V her Anta wala and third look, may Allah disgraced the land that doesn't have a person like you you are a person like you like what good is there in a lance?

00:30:00--> 00:30:38

So powerful Subhanallah it's hard to translate. Allahu Allah and Lisa anto Allah emphatic what good is a place that doesn't have a person like you, or those that are like you. And that shows you the way this the Sahaba the Companions understood the blessing that comes to a place we will do the salah when when righteous people are present and how a place becomes vulnerable when they don't have righteous people amongst them. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah make us amongst the righteous Allah Amin righteous people become sources of blessing in the land. righteous people become sources of answered do as answered supplications righteous people are a means of protection on the land. So our

00:30:38--> 00:31:19

model the law on who said, what, what good is there in a place that you are not in? Or someone that is like you, he told him go back? And he said, and I will not appoint any Emir over you. And this is the only person he ever does this for by the way, he said, As for you, no one's in charge of you. You're in charge of yourself. And to me you don't and an ASIC you're your own man, you're in charge of yourself. This is not like our model the law on hold right to say, you don't have to respond anybody. You're good. You do your thing. You know, I trust you. But I need you over there. And even sends a letter to Mario the allow unknown says I'm sending about the back and I heard about your

00:31:19--> 00:31:52

dispute. Listen, who Amido enough. See, he's a meat of himself, leave him alone. He makes his own decisions. He's not accountable to you he's accountable to Allah. He's accountable to himself. Leave them alone. I need him there will be Hola Hola. Hola. Ano so he goes back? And the happy ending Is that him and what are we actually win a lot of battles together after this. After this dispute that they had. He plays a major role than in the expansion of Islam. Remember, this is where it's getting heated between the Roman Empire and the Muslims, the Byzantines and the Muslims. So

00:31:53--> 00:32:01

one of the most important expeditions here are one of the most important battles is the battle for Egypt for muscle.

00:32:02--> 00:32:03


00:32:04--> 00:32:52

we all know that I'm gonna be honest about the Allahu Taala and who is the man who led the overall right battle for Egypt against the Roman Empire, but of his main generals, was regard to Osama throw the Allahu taala. So rabada is one of the main people that is engaged in this battle with the Roman Empire, the Byzantines at the time for Egypt. And this is where you find one of the most epic conversations in the history of Islam, because it shows you the way that people's hearts and minds were changed through Islam. This was not a military force. This was a spiritual force. This is very different. Their concepts were shifted, things changed. So the Muslims

00:32:53--> 00:33:09

laid siege to the Babylon fortress in the year 641. And the ruler the last Cyprus, the last Cyrus at the time of Egypt, the last Cyrus was a man by the name of Admiral Copus. Now, Elmo countless literally translates to the Caucasian,

00:33:10--> 00:33:29

the Roman ruler of Egypt, okay, and we'll call this the Caucasian Roman ruler of Egypt, the last Cyrus of Egypt. He's also the patriarch, so he's the head of the church. Simultaneously, the political ruler, the general over Egypt, under the Roman Empire, right. And this is really interesting.

00:33:30--> 00:33:45

Because before a battle takes place, you got the negotiations right. Diplomacy first. So and Macaca says in his fortress, he's really holed up, and he comes out to meet the Muslims.

00:33:46--> 00:33:50

And when he comes out, he sees her battle the Allahu Taala on

00:33:52--> 00:33:53

or about them was black.

00:33:55--> 00:33:56

This doesn't make sense to him.

00:33:57--> 00:34:09

So, you know, one narration even says, can you go who's actually you know, who's really in charge? Like go talk to whoever's in charge and tell him I want to talk to him? Because that's their mindset. Right? You know, you can't be a leader

00:34:10--> 00:34:11

but when he comes forward

00:34:13--> 00:34:51

and we'll focus and makes a racist remark against her body I mean think about the position or about the has a law the law I know amongst the Muslims at this point it's it's primal it's very It's ironic that the first Muslim commander right was was someone who was a little the Allahu Taala and hope against the Romans or salmon or the Allah Tala and who was described as also being exceedingly black. So you have an empire that's got all of its Roman Empire stuff. And now you have about a Masonic so rather comes forward. I don't know kolkhoz says it very Duany. Dali, tell us what, what caused the Mughal era who you can eliminate take this black man away from me and put someone else

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

forward to talk to me. I'm not even gonna talk to him. I mean, talk about the disrespect, right like he didn't even talk to him. He talked to everybody else to the Muslims that were there.

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

or behind the ABA who's the leader?

00:35:03--> 00:35:16

And he said, take the take this black man away and go find someone else to talk to me. This is the head of the church. This is the head of the this political power, right? Like think about the difference in moral values here between the two.

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

And regardless of the allowance, I know he's not moving. And they responded to him. They said, they said in the handle of Boroondara, Ian, were Ilma. Who was the year do now? Well, how are you gonna? So this man that you're just degraded? is the best of us. Right? Yeah. And where Elena, this is what they valued his opinion, his knowledge. And he is our leader. And he is the best of us. Not zero. Jimmy and Isla Kohli, he, he we don't say anything except what he says we always return back to him like it's his word that dominates all of our word. So even if we were to speak, we're going to confirm everything with him because this is our leader. So a complete vote of confidence, not like

00:36:00--> 00:36:25

you know, we have to use wisdom here. He doesn't want to talk to our leader because our leaders black, let's go find one of the Sahaba whose wider complexion come talk to him about this and know like, this is not negotiable for us. This is our leader, and you have a problem, not us. And we'll hope this still does not address regard to Osama directly. He's still talking to them.

00:36:26--> 00:37:07

And he says, What Kay farolito In Your Corner had the last weather of Morocco. How could you allow for yourselves to let this black man be the best of you? How could you let him be the best of you. And he says, in a million biryani, Akona doing a company should be the least of you. You still degrading him right in front of them says this man should be the least of you, we should not be the best of you. And they responded. And they said once again, he is the best of us. He is our leader. He is our he is our commander. And they said well in the last war there will be other end. And so like this is so beautiful like concepts they said and by the way, black and white to us are the

00:37:07--> 00:37:08


00:37:09--> 00:37:43

Or teaching him about Islam. Like I know you've been governing for all this time. And this is how you set up hierarchies but to us, black and white are the same. No one is superior except by Taqwa except by their piety. That's how you gain prominence and position amongst us Muslims is to piety. So no. colcrys is like who are these people? I don't understand you because this is not. This is not a worldview that I've dealt with like the Persians. Were just as backwards as the Romans. So it's like what are we doing here? So monocoque, this finally after arguing with them.

00:37:44--> 00:38:20

He says to her, rather, rather than just standing there, he says to bother. He says, come forth, you know, God didn't Yes, well, he still calls him a black one, come forth a block when he says, but speak lowly because you scare me and I don't want you to speak harshly because then you're really going to scare me like so. Keep your voice down. Don't speak harshly towards me keep a little bit of a distance but say what you got to say like fine these people don't want to talk to me how to find your their leader. I'll talk to you. And I'll gather all the Allahu Tada, I'm home. He goes forth and he smiles and he says, Listen, if you're scared of me, my blackness he says in the female her

00:38:20--> 00:39:02

love to him and us hobby alpha, Rosalyn password. There are 1000 Black men behind me. I'm not the only black one here. I want you to know there are 1000 Black men behind me couldn't go home. I said do so via the mini will Avila and mandala, every one of them as black as me. And they'll scare you just as much as I do. These using his silliness. Disadvantage, right? Like fine, you got a problem with us. I'm telling you this army of few 1000 people back here, there are 1000 Black men here. And they're going to scare you too. So you better be afraid I suggest you back down that. And then animal carcass not amused obviously. And he says to him, What do you want?

00:39:03--> 00:39:48

Like, I'm not even gonna engage you on this stuff. What do you want? And subhanAllah he responds. And he says, You may be afraid of me. But he said, Well, Allah He, My youth is gone. And I'm old. As you can see your brother's an elderly man at this point. He's in his 60s. He says, but I would not be afraid of 100 of your best soldiers. I don't fear you. I don't fear even 100 of your best men. And if they all wanted to face me at once, I would take all 100 of them at once. And he said in my companions, US hobby. So, my companions back there. My army, they all have the same courage that I'm saying to you. And he said, We are not fighting you for worldly gain or for wealth. None of us cares

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

to have a single Durham from this world, a single gold coin of this world except to ward off hunger and to clothe ourselves with a single garment and anything be

00:40:00--> 00:40:07

On that is extra and we're contented with what Allah subhanho wa Taala has given to us. Our pleasure is the pleasure of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:40:09--> 00:40:18

So like, by the way, you can't bribe us if you're thinking, let me try to bribe you bring you in, give you something that's not going to work either.

00:40:19--> 00:40:21

And Subhan Allah animal pocus.

00:40:22--> 00:41:05

He says to the people around them, he says hello, Samaritan Mithila Kalama Have you caught? Have you ever heard people talk like this? Have you heard what he said? He said, Look by the hip to Mombasa. We're in Coppola, hula or Endymion number he said I was afraid of his look, I was afraid of his appearance. But he says hola who are Endymion manga, manga, the manga manga he that looking that what he has said, is alarming me much more than his appearance. Because these are people that are different from us. Their values are different from us. Their conviction is different from us. Their courage is different from us. And indeed, subhanAllah are about double the Allahu Taala and who led

00:41:05--> 00:41:25

that battle, and led that army to victory, very swift victory in fact, against an Calpis the last Cyrus of Egypt in that time, and went on to develop Egypt in very beautiful ways. How many of you are mostly by the way? How many Egyptians we have in here? So Okay, raise your hands. I'm gonna ask you a question.

00:41:27--> 00:41:32

A trivia question. I know some of you are Muslim, you're not raising your hand like I'm gonna say something better. All right.

00:41:33--> 00:41:35

What is the first capital of Egypt?

00:41:37--> 00:41:39

First capital city of Egypt.

00:41:40--> 00:41:44

I know some of you're not gonna like my answer. You're gonna come argue with me afterwards anyway, because I know how it goes

00:41:46--> 00:41:47

to this country Yeah.

00:41:49--> 00:41:52

I'll say says Alexandria. Anyone know what it is?

00:41:53--> 00:42:35

Before start Mashallah. All right you when Zach Allah, the first capital of Egypt is actually full sloth and Roboto the law and who was the first one to develop that city. And he also built the first message it in muscle, which happens to now be known as Masjid I'm gonna Banaras so he's actually the one who built the first measure that Muslims are the first Muslim in Egypt, which is known as Mohammed Ahmed in the US, while the Allah hotel and which is of course a very famous Masjid in Egypt. So rabada Well, the Allahu Anhu. This is another one of his contributions, right developing centrally much of the city of Egypt and there are other Masada that they say in a sham that are

00:42:35--> 00:43:19

built by Allah little the Allah Tadanobu. Generally speaking, he was known to be a person who could be an architect for massage and would build the massager in the places that he would go after Egypt comes Cyprus. Last week, we spoke about what happened in Cyprus, when or above the law, and who was leading the naval expedition, the first naval expedition in Islam, against what was the Roman base in Cyprus, And subhanAllah on haram, or the Allahu taala? And how would his wife would die as soon as they got off of the ship, as was promised by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that she would be amongst that group and she was accepted as a Shahida. Over there in Cyprus.

00:43:20--> 00:43:44

And Aruba actually still led the campaign. So there were two campaigns against the Roman base in Cyprus or battle the low tide and who, despite losing his wife was still entrusted with going forth and leading those two campaigns against the Romans in Cyprus. And then he retired to Palestine, he retired to Philistine once again. So Subhanallah as we get to sort of the end of him, his life in this regard.

00:43:46--> 00:44:03

He didn't live much longer after his wife passed away, died only two or three years after him how long will the Allah Tada and he passed away and he did not fight in any expeditions anymore after the Battle of Cyprus remodel the LA hotel and home stages and Philistine and Palestine

00:44:04--> 00:44:29

continues to teach the people the Quran continues to narrate some of the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim he's the narrator of over 100 of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the narrations and he also starts to smell some of the fitness some of the dissension the trials and tribulations that would lead to the assassination of Earth mammal the law and this is now in the feed off of Earth mammal the law of Thailand.

00:44:30--> 00:45:00

And he's one of the first people to recognize what's happening, but he doesn't live to actually see it come to fruition. But remember that you know fitna on the inside is almost always instigated from the outside. So this undermining of Earth mama the Allahu taala. I know this the slander of Earth, Mama Delano, these things, he starts to hear some of that in Palestine. He's crushing it, and he's very weary of it, but he's not going to live to actually see the fitna come to reality

00:45:00--> 00:45:34

See in his life, but there are narrations of him stopping some of the young men that are starting to pass on some of the stuff about Earth man, like, What are you talking about? What are you talking about? So he starts to hear some of these overzealous youth that are saying very nasty things about this model, the Allahu Anhu and is correcting some of those things very early on. And he's wary of it. And he's telling us now know the Allahu Anhu what he's hearing in Philistine at the time. But then Subhanallah we find his death and I'd never heard this narration personally of his death until until this time around when I was preparing for it. He's in Palestine, and he does something very

00:45:34--> 00:45:36

beautiful at the time of his death.

00:45:37--> 00:46:05

He became sick, so he would die a natural death Roboto the Allahu Taala and who it's narrated lemma, how the lemma, how the rot riguarda Alba, one regard or the law of terror and who came to the time of death, he said to he said to his family, a three Doofy Rashi it Assa Yanni de take my body out, take me out, roll me out, basically in front of my house to the courtyard of my house. And he said,

00:46:06--> 00:46:32

go ahead and call tomorrow, Li Mo Alia will help me What do you Ronnie, I want you to call every single person that I ever interacted with a subject servant, a soldier, a family member, a neighbor, anybody please call them forward women county Expo aleja. Whoever used to enter upon me whoever I used to interact with, please call them over to the house for a demo.

00:46:33--> 00:46:38

So they all came around him and their leaders about to die.

00:46:39--> 00:46:46

And I want you to think about this about a little the law on who is laying down and he's talking and everyone is gathered around him to hear what he has to say outside of his home.

00:46:47--> 00:47:05

And he says in the Yoni have the IRA who are here a young woman Yep. To Allah, Yamuna. Dunya. What Oh, well, Leila. 10 minutes after he said this day of my I see it to be the last day of my life in this world and the first night of my night in the hereafter.

00:47:07--> 00:47:43

He says this is the last day I'm going to live in this earth. And I think it's the first night that I'm going to live in the hereafter and encountered the status of the Hereafter. And he says to everyone, we're in the La de la isla who could ferrata mini Brd LBD, Sani che Wahoo. Allah lucky enough to allow that to be a de la Solsona piano, Farmer Harada decom che on Mon FC Illa pasa mini cobbler and Yak Raja and FC said, Listen, I might have said something to my hands or my tongue might have slipped in regards to one of you.

00:47:44--> 00:47:58

In this world, I might have said something hurtful, I might have done something hurtful to one of you. I don't know who it is. But if I have done so, Allah is going to take your your justice, you're right on the day of judgment from me.

00:47:59--> 00:48:21

So whoever has anything to say anyone that I harmed with my tongue or with my hand or did something wrong to please bring it forward to me and take your pay back now before my soul leaves this world is how long this is the concern of this man, despite all that he had done which shows you the piety of these people

00:48:22--> 00:49:07

and not a single person comes forward. They all instead start to say to him words of praise Bill Quinto, Adam, what Quinton was a demon. You were like a father, you were a mentor, you were you were the best of us. We have nothing to say. And they said about this, you know, Quinto YT then we're going to debunk what are called Le Hardyman su uncut and you never said to anyone, any servants or anyone a bad word like we never heard anything from your mouth. That can be harmful. Think about that. By the way. If you're going to meet Allah subhanaw taala even if you have this pristine biography of accomplishment after accomplishment after accomplishment, the concern that he has is

00:49:07--> 00:49:13

have I slipped that I say something to one of you? Did I hurt you? I want you to tell me

00:49:14--> 00:49:23

and no one has anything to say. So that'll be allowed Tada. And when he says afar, Tim Lee Mecanim indolic. So you forgive me for everything.

00:49:24--> 00:50:00

All of you forgive me for everything. No one has anything to say. They said nothing caught Allahu machete said Oh ALLAH bear witness an oral battle the Allahu Anhu would die that day. Oh, Allah bear witness that not a single person had one complaint against me. May Allah make that our state as well. Not a single person could claim that I heard them. That's a beautiful thing to aspire to. You might not be able to aspire to some of the other stuff we're about to accomplish. But can you aspire to that that when I die not a single person could say that you harmed me with your tongue or you harm me with your hand in hand.

00:50:00--> 00:50:39

Any way, and there's one more Hadith And subhanAllah the last hadith of Abba is narrated on his deathbed, which is, which is powerful in and of itself. Of the over 100 Hadith the last Hadith that would come from him would come on the day of his death. It's narrated by a slob hate a sunnah that he will the love and hope for the students of Hadith. There are three Sunnah the haste there's one companion one may be companion and one Tabori. So this is a companion of the Prophet SAW Selim and a companion of Roboto, the Allahu Taala and I'm the Ramadhan or a sailor, a sunnah behave while the Allah I know. He said, This is the last narration of Aruba. He said the Hulk to La he will who will

00:50:39--> 00:50:44

melt I entered upon Aruba and he was just about to die. Like he was just about to die.

00:50:46--> 00:50:48

Carla fabricates so he said, I started to cry.

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

I started to cry. Now.

00:50:53--> 00:51:00

You would think that the one who's in distress is the one who's dying not the one who's visiting the one who's dying right? Said I started to cry.

00:51:01--> 00:51:41

So he said about a setback to me Madeline Lena Tab key. Why are you crying? Stop crying. Carla for Wallahi letting us to hit to lash her Danyluk what an inch ensure fair to last us for analog well installed to the environment. He said listen, if I'm if I die as a Shaheed, if I'm a martyr, then I will bear witness for you all and then I will intercede for you. And if I can intercede if Allah places me in the position of an intercessor on the Day of Judgment, I'll intercede for you this is a student, this is his companion. And he said I will try to benefit you in any way meaning, you know, this isn't the end of our relationship. Don't worry. I'll see you on the Day of Judgment. I'll see

00:51:41--> 00:52:05

you on the other side. And if I'm in a good place, then I will be there for you. But then he says to him, and he says Wallahi man in Hadith and Samara to whom and Rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala confy higher in Hadith to como Illa. Hadith. Anwar here is that someone listened to me saying to us on our behalf, he said,

00:52:07--> 00:52:18

every Hadith I learned from the prophets I seldom that would be of benefit to you. I shared with you. I shared everything I heard from the Prophet slice on with you. He said that there is one more Hadith I want to share with you,

00:52:19--> 00:52:46

he said was Sophia who had difficult Hadith to Kumu Eliana wakad Oh, hey, Toby enough. See, BFC said I'm going to share this with you today. And I'm near my death my soul is about to leave my body. He said, I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say Samaritan rasool Allah he's still alive. Send me a call and then Shahida and La ilaha illallah wa Ana Muhammad Rasulullah haram Allahu Allah Hinata

00:52:47--> 00:53:23

I heard the prophets like some say, Whoever bears witness that there is no God but Allah, that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. Allah will forbid the fire from that person. Allah has forbidden the fire from that person. So beautiful Hadith. It's the last Hadith he narrated. He narrated it moments before he died. He's not the only narrator of this hadith by the way. Well, I literally alone who also narrated it but way late when he was about to die. Why? Because either Nia Tukey Oh, he didn't want people to become complacent. You might hear the Hadith and be like, Alright, we're good then. What else do we have to do? We just say Shahada.

00:53:24--> 00:53:53

But he doesn't want you to become complacent. You got to work like that Allah Muhammad Rasul. Allah is the key of all goodness, and you got the teeth of the key, right? You've got to work. But this hadith is so hopeful, so beautiful. So he said, I heard the prophets lie. Some say that whoever says the shahada, Allah will not punish that person. Hold on Allah who I don't even know. And he passed away. Moments after that a lot the Allahu Taala and who he passed away actually in Palestine and Philistine. I don't know if brothers have the picture if you can put it up.

00:53:55--> 00:54:04

There showing or not showing, showing. This is the grave of a robot little the little toddler and who gets where it's up. Anyone recognize it?

00:54:05--> 00:54:07

Babble Rama next muscle OXA.

00:54:08--> 00:54:51

So the grave about all the lower animals actually next to it's in the cemetery right next to most of the Arkansas, the Bible Rama cemetery. Lee Subhanallah, amongst many companions, amongst many tambourine amongst many great men and women, before and after, and of course, it's also under occupation, and has been desecrated before Allah subhanaw taala liberate Atlanta Lahoma I mean, but it is a beautiful place. I've never been to it. Never been allowed to go but I know some of the people who do get to go on these trips with Aqua shella Tata, you go to Baba Rama, if you go to the cemetery, you find this grave of about the whole the long term and how many of the Hadith that he

00:54:51--> 00:54:59

00:55:54--> 00:56:25

they practice the practice the whole Quran during tennis, I mean, my muzzle Allah I was alone. How old were all they when they when they like practice the whole thing? Okay, how old were the fall, most of the fall were actually young people. Most of them were young people. And of course, by the time prophets lie, some passed away, there were hundreds of people that memorize the whole Quran. But there were people that were sort of recognized as the main memorizers, but most of them were young people. May Allah make you a half of the Quran? Say, I mean,

00:56:26--> 00:56:27

are you a half of you?

00:56:28--> 00:56:31

You get in there and shuttler. Right. You have the intention.

00:56:32--> 00:56:33

You want to

00:56:34--> 00:56:35

like tomorrow?

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

All right.

00:56:37--> 00:56:39

Any sisters?

00:56:40--> 00:56:41


00:56:44--> 00:57:11

So Oh, my God. Why was it called the pledge of women. So they called at that time in the Arabic terminology when they said they actually saw because the women were not typically fighting in battle. So if it wasn't a pledge that required a military component, then they called it they are to Nisa. Because it wasn't a military pledge. But if it was, it was a pledge that everyone could take. But if it was a military pledge, then it was understood that the men were going to put their lives on the line for that place. So it was Arabic terminology at the time. Yeah.

00:57:13--> 00:57:14

You know, the questions.

00:57:15--> 00:57:26

Your question? No. All right. Questions. So now, question here. So doing war negotiations with the Byzantines, and I guess other nations or

00:57:27--> 00:57:33

rivals that had different languages? What was the logistics around on the language barriers?

00:57:36--> 00:57:53

The language barrier? So what were the logistics around the language barrier? So good question. It's usually not spelled out. Obviously, translators were common. But especially in those regions, it was common for them to speak some of the same languages.

00:57:55--> 00:58:05

So the assumption that's made in most of these is is direct conversation. But of course, translators would be present at the time as well. Good question, something to look into.

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

Any other questions?

00:58:10--> 00:58:11

Yes, sir.

00:58:14--> 00:58:20

What were the locations of the of the other places of the two office top?

00:58:21--> 00:58:39

What were the other two locations that were the other two companions? One? Good question. So they went to hemps and Damascus, hemps famous city and Syria and domestic Damascus, which was a city which was the center and then you had Palestine, Jerusalem in particular. Thank you.

00:58:43--> 00:58:45

Any sisters?

00:58:48--> 00:58:50
