Rasul Allah, Allah, I bear witness, I bear witness that there's only one god that there is only one God and that Muhammad, and Muhammad is his final messenger is his final messenger. It's like be
welcome to the community. Finally,
before you go, can you talk about what kind of drew you you've been here for seven weeks? It's very interesting. I see that the prayers have been attending the classes. What kind of drew you to this place? Well, it's kind of funny. Up until several weeks, I would I didn't know anything about Islam.
I didn't grow up around Muslims. I didn't know Muslim, I had never attended a mosque. The idea of, of Islam, and a Muslim was just extinct to my idea. I know very nothing about it.
Originally, it was just to find a mosque and get a Koran. Because I had at first thought idea of purchasing one online. But what better reliable source than getting one from from a mosque right? So I came on a Friday, I got out of work at a decent time. And, you know, I was like, why not? Why not? I thought about it so much. Why not? You know, I worked at the Irving collecting Center.
I'm an HVAC technician, by trade. And you know, why not? What do I have to lose?
I didn't come. I didn't come at the best time because there wasn't a lot of people. I think it was like around four o'clock.
I remember coming in and seeing a group of brothers in the front.
It was it was it was a little empty. And the first thing that I remembered walking through the door is seeing men and women. And I was a little confused to begin with. But I'm a man. So I guess I'll make a left right.
I had seen one of the custodian generally general ladies, she wasn't much help. And
yeah, and right then and they right then and there kind of my shift in mindset of talking and treating people just changed.
Because just from the background that I grew up in, growing up in the inner city, and Southeast Dallas, we're taught to ignore people to give to give each other the core soul, the cold shoulder. We don't go out of our way to greet people. It's just me against you. We're we're all totally to each other.
I had, she's, you know, I couldn't really get much information on her. So I remember going back and thinking, well, there was a group of guys in the front. And I constipated ideas like, should I go? Should I not shy, you know, and I was like, Well, I had been looking up to get a Koran for three weeks to help. I had been searching, searching, searching for a mosque. I'm getting the Quran today. I'm getting the Quran. I'm leaving here with that one.
And it took a lot out of me to go out of my way and go talk to them just because that that wasn't me.
That wasn't how I grew up. And funny enough, you know, I got on my way to talk to them. And they asked me or I asked them if there's a bookstore here. And funny enough, right then and there. I got I got to figure out just the content of the character of people who are dedicated to Islam. Everybody, it seemed as if everybody was pulling out their phone thinking a workbook
store was, and funny enough, they told me oh, well, there's a Walmart not so far away.
And then it got to a certain point when they were like, What kind of book the are you looking for? And I said a Koran. And it was like, oh, yeah, I'm here to get a Quran, the Quran.
And from there is as if everybody, I mean, I had one person calling somebody else for a Korean and English, some people were coming inside, you know, somebody was gonna go across the street, and I was like, I was taken aback. I was like, wow, they don't know me.
I've never met these people in my life. And they're just so willingly to go out of their way and help me. And that's kind of hierarchy see the content of the character of people who are dedicated to Islam. And, you know, it was breathtaking. It's almost as if time stopped. And I was like, Wow, interesting. You guys were the kind of people that I've always wanted to be like, but because of my society, or the society that I was surrounded by, and the world that I knew, I turned cold.
And I didn't allow myself to be warm, or go out of my way to talk to the next man.
And then rest assured they invited me for it was Friday, they invited me for the no doubt that night. And I had I had agreed, yes. And you know, I had gone home and I was like, Ah, maybe I will. Maybe I will. You know, I don't know. And honestly, I was like, why not? Why not? Why not? I'm already getting the Koran. Let me let me go out of our way to tell it's come to a mosque. And I ended up coming. And the first thing that I noticed was the diversity. You know, growing up Roman Catholic, it's almost as if we self segregate ourselves. There was Hispanics, there's blacks, and there was whites. And like I said, I know nothing about Islam. I've never gone to a mosque. So just
by I don't know, society, the mainstream media, I was expecting nautical errors, you know. And I was I was taken aback. I was like, Wow, interesting. There's such a diverse group of people here. Fascinating. This is how I feel a church or a mosque should be like, we all gathered together of all races of all kind, you know?
So you know, and
I had met Salim, I had met Salim, when I had came to get the Quran, and he met me afterwards. And he was just introducing me to all these people. And they were just so so glad and happy that I was here. And I was just taken aback. Wow, you don't know me. Like you don't know, I wasn't used to this. You don't know me. You know, just because of how I viewed the world and how allowed the world to let me view them.
And I just got to know a little bit more. When I came Friday, I came Saturday, I came Sunday, I came Monday, I came Tuesday, I came Wednesday, I came Friday. And I came nonstop, just because I wanted to experience it and see it verbatim in person. You know, watching videos on YouTube and learning about it online is only so much. I wanted to experience it firsthand for myself. And you know, that's kind of why I would come so much. And that's why everybody's seen me here so much, even though I hadn't converted yet. They thought you were Muslim six weeks ago. But yeah, that's kind of how it seemed like.
So you know, and I remember three weeks ago, I was actually asked by one of the brothers that I met here, Abraham, to join in prayer. And it was a combination of it being last minute, I didn't feel that I was ready to actually have tour. So you know, I currently denied mind that between all the time that I had to go and I just sat in the back and observed and you know, did nice gestures, like try not to be on my phone for common respect and trying to pay attention.
And I thought about it, I thought about it. And funny enough, the day before I had, I had came to the conclusion of like, let me try it out. Let me experience it, you know, Let me punch straight through the whole, you know, all the steps. I had another brother come and talk to me and asked me Have I ever thought to join and it was it was like, funny enough. I was actually thinking that yesterday and I had thought about it so much before it was almost as if God put you in my position to help encourage me and go out of my way to join a prayer. And this was two Sundays ago.
And we set up the it was after Isha. So we set up for the following for the following night. And it felt good. It felt really good.
Ever since that TOS done is go I can't just watch. I couldn't just watch. I couldn't it was something within me that I just could not just watch I had to participate
you know, and that's when I kind of knew I was kind of getting closer just taking those those stepping blocks.
And rest assured you know, time just passes by passes by. And
On Saturday, I had a brother to ask me to take my Shahada
to De Soto house of worship. And what really touched me more than anything is that he told me that I didn't have to be perfect.
That it's okay that I didn't have to be perfect. I think just because I was so hard on myself, and I felt as if I had to meet certain standards, or meet a certain quota to be able to convert.
And from the drive from the soda to the mosque, I have just thought about it, just thought about it. And I was like, I come every day, you know, I feel that I'm doing well with something within myself. I don't, I don't have any neck, it's bringing so much positivity to my life. From the age of 10 to 20, I dedicated my life to boxing.
And I'm 25 now, and I just left it, I left it for five years, just because you know, it was okay, I left it alone. And funnily enough, now going through coming to the mosque, I am back in the gym. I'm not necessarily fighting or competing, like I used to, but I'm, you know, participating in the exercises for my health, you know, and I think coming to the mosque to kind of help push me to that.
So I had just thought about it. And funnily enough, by the time I came to the mosque, I came to the conclusion that it's time, I'm ready.
And this was this past Sunday.
And funnily enough, it's things just where things were making sense that they shouldn't have.
That I knew, I knew it was time. So I come into the mosque. And it's almost as if, like, time stopped. Because I knew I wasn't contemplating the idea become Muslim. I didn't need to learn more. I was ready. I was ready within myself. And I felt nothing was holding me back by myself.
And funnily enough, your seal comes in, and he asked me, if, if how I am on my journey, if I am close to taking my Shahada, and I couldn't help but to laugh. I couldn't help but to laugh. Because what a coincidence that here you are asking me, and I just came to the conclusion that I am ready.
Like, wow, fascinating, like fascinating how things work. And just the joy on his face and everybody that I was reading. And he asked me to be sure it's like, I'm sure without a doubt. I know, I know, normally.
And then from there it went, you know, to talk into people and setting up a time for today. And you know, there's small details here and there that I've left out. But in the general analysis, that's kind of how it's gone. You know, seven weeks ago, I knew nothing about Islam. I didn't know a Muslim, I had never gone to a mosque. I didn't know what a Koran looked like I hadn't ever seen one.
It was obsolete, and now it's just converted.
we're gonna want to hear every detail.
You're gonna be here for Ramadan Inshallah, for sure. Well, that's one of the things too, that I knew that I was smart building blocks, smart checkmarks that I was checking off that I had never even separate myself. Before I even contemplated the idea of converting. And I was just learning. I already wanted to participate in Ramadan. I was just wanting to do all these things, to essentially feel it and just get that internal connection. And like the first time that I prayed,
I felt that and if I knew that it was time for prayer, I couldn't not pray. I felt that I had to. And small things like that. I knew it was just building blocks, just building blocks, you know, and that's kind of how we are today.
I want you to know that your home now. You're with family at home that are looking forward to seeing you grow in your journey over the next several several years. Hopefully it'll be part of this community for a very long time. What we say to everyone here is Welcome home. Thank you.
Welcome home. Everyone's gonna have to hold off their hug until after class. This is a small gift for you in sha Allah Tiana, thank you so much. I want to be it.
So thank you again for coming. And they're gonna Yeah, and one last thing.
Along with me after finish after the first time I had participate in prayer, I had went out of my way to purchase my first prayer prayer mat and funnily enough, it arrived today
it's like view. Thank you so much for being here. Welcome home and congratulations Mashallah. He is the
the purest person here right now may Allah subhanaw taala keep our brother Hector firm, may Allah keep him sincere and steadfast. May Allah bless him to have a fruitful journey and continue to connect with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. May Allah keep him on the path of Islam and allow us to be a proper community and family to him. Allah him me
I feel like I shouldn't give a does anyone feel like we're done?
That's the most beautiful class that you can possibly have hamdulillah was Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah while he was like to be human whether so we will continue tonight in sha Allah to Allah with Zainab bint Jack all the Allahu Tada and Zainab bint Jahsh masala sous chef Mustafa Briggs is here to hum the dinner or welcome back home sick Mustafa here Kamala,
Xena been Joshua the Allahu Tada and her is a wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who so many Muslim women are named after. Yet there is so little that's known about her life and Subhanallah I'm excited to actually tell her story, more so than most of the people that we've spoken about. Because usually her life is only brought up in the context of a controversy about her marriage, and not her qualities and her virtues and her relationship with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sunnah. And before I get into her life today, I wanted everyone to keep in mind a few things in regards to how much we know about a wife of the Prophet salallahu, it was seven. And
usually, there are a few factors that determine that for one, how early they married him sub Allahu Allahu wa salam. So whether it's Moroccan or Madani time that they came to marry the Prophet salallahu Salam, or later on in the Sierra, how much time they spent with him, the major factor being how early or how late they died, right, because the longer that a wife of the prophets lie some lives, the more they're able to tell the story of their time with the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam and narrate the Sierra, through their lens. So you have that factor how long they lived after the prophets lie, so I'm gonna of course relatives that live as well if they had a prominence
sibling that outlived them that could tell their story or in the case of artificial the Alon has she lived long and then Ottawa is obeyed. Her nephew lives long and tells her story. So it's relatives that tell the story. The thing about Xena Ben Jack's or the Allahu Taala Anna is that she is the first wife of the Prophet slice them to die after him. Right so that's probably the main reason why if not, for sure, the main reason why we don't have too much about her while the Allahu Tada and her so the prophesy sons wives died in the following order, who is the first wife of the prophets lie some today? I just want to make sure y'all are awake. For the devil the Allahu anha, who was the
second wife of the prophets like some today? Xena boo,
Xena bento Zima Xena Bilquis Aima. While the Allahu anha the only other wife of the Prophet slice them to die in his lifetime. She only lives six months with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam only Masaki in the mother of the poor and we have a lecture on her early on in this in this series of the first and then after Xena bento Zima Zane have been Jash while the Allahu Tada Anna, who are going to speak about today. Now to situate Xena bint Jash all of the Allahu Taala and her in the story of the Sierra. I want to talk about her family in brief a bit. Okay, so she is from one of the most prominent families in Mecca from both sides. Her father via AB is from Benny Abdi shrimps,
noble, wealthy rich man owns most of the or more properties than anyone else in terms of houses more real estate in Mecca than anyone else. Her mother will NEMA been to Abdulmutallab is the maternal aunt of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam. So Bento Hashem winner of the shrimps and she has nobility from both sides. She has wealth, she has beauty, she has prestige she has prominent so she comes from the top of the top of the top when it comes to the classism that exists in Mecca, and SubhanAllah. What we find is that the children her and her siblings all become Muslim, they all become Muslim. So the first brother of hers that we've spoken about in some detail, but just briefly
once again, I'm beloved no Jash Abdullah bin Jack shall the Allahu Taala and the first image of Islam. The first image of Islam is Abdullah projectional the Allahu Anhu he is the one who is buried in the same grave as Hamza bin Abdullah multivocal the Allah Juan. And another fun fact of the love No, Josh was the first husband of Xena bento Zima. So before you get confused, because we got to separate the two signups there are a lot of signups in the CLO he's the first husband of Xena bento Zima and when he was martyred, the profit slice on married his widow Xena bento Zima and Zeno bento Zima passed away shortly afterwards. Alright, so this is the brother of Xena, Ben Jack's, while the
Allahu anha I'd love to Jash converted to Islam early on at the hands of Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allah Tada and who he was amongst he was in some narration is actually the very first person to migrate to Abyssinia, the first Mahajan to Habesha and some narrations, the first migrant to Abyssinia of the first migrants to Medina the first immediate in Islam as we
because he's the first one to lead a battalion under the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he was martyred in the Battle of ERT and buried with Hamza on the Allahu taala. And who would be his uncle? I wish I had a chart for you all because the mother is mainly been tagged in Multilib. So her his mother would be the sister of Hamza, right. So he's buried with his maternal uncle Hemsedal, the Allahu Taala and who, in one grave?
Then you have obaidul Love to Josh, obey the love. No, Josh was one of those that embraced monotheism before Islam even came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he migrated to Abyssinia. He was the husband of ohm Habiba on the Allahu Taala and the daughter of Abu Sufyan before on Habiba, married the Prophet SAW Selim. And there are narrations, though none of them are established. And that's why when you go back to his story, I said it's actually not a good idea to to, you know, stake our claim in this that he left Islam and Abyssinian became a Christian, but there's nothing to actually establish that. Okay, but this is her other brother Obaidullah had been
Josh, then see has a black diamond had been Josh, while the Allahu anhu, who we have also a whole episode about. All right. And he is the other blind man from the companions. His story is almost identical to our beloved no Makoto, while the Allahu anha. Why because he wants to participate in everything. And he doesn't allow his disability to get in the way of his participation in any way. If I can carry a flag, let me carry a flag. If I can do anything, let me do anything else. So Allah, I am by your side on Messenger of Allah, and I will akhmedov the Allahu Taala and who was the one whose house was stolen? I mean, you know, he stayed back and Marquez house was stolen by Abu Sufyan
and then another home by Abuja, and he used to complain about that to Allah Subhan Allah to Allah. And he was guaranteed Allah Tala and you're a to Allah Who beat down on Phil Jana. Aren't you pleased to Obama that Allah will give you in place of it, a house in Jana, the house that was stolen from you, when you became Muslim, and when you were persecuted, and run out of Mecca, this brother of blackmud lived the longest of all of the siblings, and he was the guardian of Xena but all the Allahu anha and he would outlive her and bury her and all sorts of things, though again, he was the one with the disability that was similar to Abdullah Maktoum may Allah be pleased with them all.
Then finally Hamina been to Jash her sister, Zainab sister have not been judged or the Allahu anha is the wife of Musab in Romania or the Allahu taala. And, and so when she you know, because you have to understand when we talked about it shall have the Allah and her she was one of those that slandered you shall the Allah
understand the trauma that this woman came from the trauma that was inflicted on her. When the battle of Ohio was complete? The prophets lie Selim went to her and said, Yeah, Hannah, it tests Evie. Oh Hamner seek the reward and she said many artists of Allah who passed away on Messenger of Allah
and he said ha looky Hamza, your uncle Hamza. So she said in Allah who like Raji rune, Allah for Allah hula hoe wa Rahima, who honey Allah Who a shahada said, you know to Allah we belong unto Allah we return. May Allah forgive him and have mercy on him. Congratulations to him on that shahada on the martyrdom that he has attained. So she lost her uncle. And the prophets lie. Some said TestDb seek the reward. She said many artists Allah who now a messenger of Allah, and he said a hooky your brother of the love No, Josh. So she was a little bit I mean, this hit closer to home, right? He started with the most distant sallallahu alayhi wasallam your uncle and now your brother also was
And she said in alila he went at Raggio and laferla hula hula Rahima who? Well Honey Allah Who shahada same thing she said for Hamza May Allah forgive them and have mercy on him and grant him a shahada grant him that martyrdom and reward him with the martyrdom and the prophets. lysozyme was building up to what to tell her that her husband was martyred too. So he said yeah Hamnet. Sav Ohana seeker Award. She said money also Allah like who's left. And he said most of it Romaine and she broke down where has not where UCLA she started to scream out and she started to well, she fell to her knees, just morning and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He, you know, he was deeply
moved by that site. And he said in Nellis, Zoji, Minella, Marathi McCann and Mahalia had, look, the spouse the husband has a place with the wife or the spouse has a place with a spouse that no one else can take. This is different. So the tragedy of her uncle, the tragedy of her brother and the tragedy of her husband all in one spot. Subhanallah she suffered all of those losses in the battle ahead. So the 73 Three of them were hers, but all the Allahu Taala Anna
And she married plug had been obey the law afterwards while the Allahu Taala and home and she actually is the mother of his most famous son Mohammed. If not all hell may Allah be pleased with them also, this is the family of Xena been Jesh now, Zane dubs name before being Xena was actually a very common name Badulla Darla. Now if you're an Arab kid, you grew up hearing Betula get out alright, battle Allah does not mean get out that Allah means free from all Simps free from all sense pure. Okay, now how many people were named Betula as many people that are named Zane up in the Sierra. Okay, so you have Bella
who is Xena Ben Jax you have Badulla was also the name of Zainab includes Emma so the prophets lie some changed her name to Xena changed her name to Xena on Solomon's name was bottler the prophets lie some changed her name. May monumental Hadith was about why the prophets lysozyme changed her name. So four of the wives of the prophets lysozyme had this name and the prophets lie some changed the name for two reasons. He said number one went out to his echo and full circle do not claim purity for yourself. So you can't claim a place of perfection. Number two, the prophets lie some did not want them to say how to dominate the battle that he left from the purity, right which is which
would have been the way that the Arabs would have expressed you know, a person leaving so the Prophet slicin Prohibited that name. Hence the name Zainab, which becomes such a common name in the Sierra. And it was one of the favorite names of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam right by his own children, his own grandchildren. And obviously when he changes the names of bubbeleh to Xena and Xena means a fragrance plants so a plant that as it grows, its its fragrance increases as well. So as it gets older, the fragrance grows as well. And so it's one of those blesseth names that the profit slice and I'm chose that obviously has resonance within the OMA today. Now Xena Ben Jessel
the Allahu Taala and who was born 17 years before revelation. And as we said royalty all around. She was born in wealth, born and prestige born in prominence. And it's important to say that she had one husband that is not named before his aw Hadith well the Allahu Taala and now obviously, as we said with the with the case of artificial the Allah Allah the habit of the Arabs was once a woman hit the her age and maturity she was married. And this is the case of all of the wives of the Prophet spice alum before they married him. If you were to correlate the time that they married, their husbands have such a fondness. It would be around the same age as I married to the Prophet slice on him
because that was the way that their society function. So she was married. It seems one time before but the name of that husband has not recorded and then she basically joins her family to Medina to escape persecution and to make the hit zone.
Now, Zane overall the Allahu Taala Anna had an expectation that nun was going to marry her except the Prophet salallahu Salam. So she's kind of waiting for the Prophet sliceable
now Subhanallah if you think about that, like Why was she so convinced that it's so sola sai someone who's going to marry her? Okay? Because from a NASA perspective, from a royalty perspective, from a lineage perspective, only the prophets liasons lineage is noble enough to be with someone like Xena and Jash from a pure NASA perspective, he's only he's the only one sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he fits the mold of a royal husband sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I mean he is the prophet of Allah, but he's also the head of state now, and he has the most noble of lineage. So she thinks that the prophets lie Selim is going to come and propose to her and she is waiting for the Prophet sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam and the prophets I said I'm comes to visit the home after a few years in Medina.
And Zainab is expecting that he's coming to propose to her. So he comes from Allah. Hi, Sam, and he speaks to him now. Her sister, Hannah, Ben, Jack saw the Allahu anha and says to him now that I've come to you with a proposal, Hannah's excited Zainab is excited the prophets liasons going to propose the prophets lie. Some said I'm here on behalf of Zaidan Hadith,
or the Allahu Taala and
Zaidan hadith of course, was a freed slave. Right? So when you talk about class poverty, when you talk about the distinction, like he's on the opposite end of Xena bra, the Allahu taala, and it is and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is purposefully trying to do that. That's why he marries, beloved the Allahu Anhu to the sister of Andromeda and Aeroflot. The Aloha, no, right, he's crossing as we said, in multiple cases, God be the famous story of God, but on the Allahu Anhu with his wife, he's going to go and he's going to break through all of these things of Allah Hardy wisdom, so he's purposefully trying to do that happiness as a tuzo, which we'll get into
I'm latika Mola, you're going to marry your cousin to your free slave.
How could you do that? No, like, we can't do that. What's going on here? And then Zainab Radi Allahu Tada and her she's so excited and then suddenly her excitement is like, wait, what you're gonna marry me to? Zaid? I thought it was you. I mean think about the disappointment the prophets like someone was coming to marry you and then it's not the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. forenza Allahu Taala and that can mean well Minuten either called Allahu wa rasuluh Amara Enya Hakuna Lahoma hirato when Emery him, It is not befitting for a believing man or believing woman. When Allah or his messenger SallAllahu is an impassive judgment that they then maintain the choice in their affairs
that there is something that's being sanctioned here the prophets lie some clearly has a wisdom and the prophets lie some see something in Xena while the Allahu Taala and she sent a message to the prophets license she said in the stuff that Allahu Allah Allah Allah rasool Allah if and model ATL Rasulullah I believe in Allah I believe in the messenger I seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala whatever you see a messenger of Allah as fitting, go ahead, I'm going to carry out that marriage so the prophets lie some is trying to break the classism in his society. And he's trying to forge relationships across the board some Allahu alayhi wa sallam for a greater wisdom now why is it
all right obviously the issue was not you know people being married to multiple people because that was the norm of the society is a little the law and he was already married to a man will the Allah Tala Anna if you think about the age gap between Zaid Amon on Amon is like the adopted mother of the Prophet slice and I'm say there's the adopted son of the Prophet slice I'm there's two decades, but when Zaid heard who wants to marry a woman of Jana with on Amon zeta, that's me. I don't care who it is. It's a woman of Gemina and he married on Amon, all the Allahu taala. And Allah bless them with with sound of music. So he broke that SallAllahu wasallam. Right. He's going across the different
lines as they exist at that time. But at the end of the day, Zaid and on Amon were of a similar socio economic status. Right. So the difference in terms of their class is not that wide. So they marry Xena. And they've been imbecile the Allah and Omar says they never got along.
You see a lot of human elements. Sometimes it just did not work out there from two completely different realities. And I want you to remember this, especially by the way, when we talk about Xena been a few years at this point in her life, and at this point, his life two totally separate realities, right. It's not you know, it sounds good on paper. It sounds like it's a great idea to break through these structures, but it's just not working out. They're not seeing eye to eye they have different habits. They have different ways. There's a little bit of resentment on the part of Zeno, but of the A lot of times as well that she wanted to be married to the profit slice on them or
to be married of someone of that class of society. So it is not working out and this is where Allah subhanaw taala reminds the prophets lie Selim. When Zaid comes to the prophets lie some and Zaid now says to Rasul Allah sigh some Jana said Allah let me divorce her. Like I want to divorce her. You're not forcing me on her. I want to divorce Haryana civil law and the prophets lie some of saying I'm sick it because Oda tequila, this is in the Quran. Hold on to your wife and fear Allah subhanaw taala be mindful of Allah tried to make it work, they, you know, work through your differences, but Subhan Allah wasn't working out.
And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says, what took Fifi enough SICA Mullah Hamid de and you concealed in yourself ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada was going to make public this here because I don't want to spend too much time on the controversy part. But it's important so I'm going to give you an article and I'm not biased at all, but I think it's the best article that's written on the subject but it's on the opinion Institute's website. The prophets is on his marriage to Xena been Josh a reexamination from a historical graphic perspective by Dr. Hassan Ashraf, so again, the prophet sighs I'm his marriage to Xena Mindjet a reexamination from a historical graphic perspective by Dr. Hassan Ashraf,
it's a long, extensive paper that completely debunks what Islamophobes and Orientalist and those that would try to take from the Prophet slice alums. Haber from his character would do. So pretext to this. Look, Allah tells us about the ways that the people of the book, disgrace their profits, they turn down Oh, Daddy has Salam David, a noblemen into a man who had sent his general out so that he can steal his wife. Yeah, according to a man who marries four women and one day two sisters and their slaves. I mean, they turn knew how to use Saddam. And so what they turned to her they said I'm into so there is no moral ground for you to try to debunk a profit on the basis of this subject in
the first place, but the same type of mindset and attitude of trying to reduce
prophets to lustful beings that are driven by their passions and their lust and their desires. So what is the Islamophobic claim? And unfortunately a claim that many Muslims will even fall into and parrots. The prophets lie Selim came one day and he saw Zainul the Allahu anha. Without her hijab and the prophets lie some fell in love with her. And the prophets lie Selim went and he held his love inside of his heart and soul loss parents are made it obvious. And then the prophets lie, some forced the divorce after that.
Here's why that doesn't make sense. Number one hijab hadn't been revealed yet.
So that's the first thing so it preys upon ignorance of historians of the historical context. And again, even sometimes Muslim scholars, and I love them, but I love the prophets lie somewhere, will parrot this idea, and it's not right. Even the prophets lie Selim, he had seen Xena. Well, the Allahu anha, without hijab, because hijab had not been revealed yet. That's number one. Number two, she wanted to marry him. If the province lies, I'm wanting to marry her from the very start, he could have saved themselves the headache, no one would have said anything, and he could have married her without putting himself in this in this hardship. So Subhanallah when I say this article is
profound, and it's a great historical breakdown. What Dr. Hudson does, he actually scrutinizes the Senate of every narration, the chain of every narration, and every story that supposedly puts this forward, and then puts forth the authentic narrative narrations about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, in this regard, so first and foremost, that Zenodo the Allahu anha would have been eager to marry the prophets lie, some isn't established historical facts, she was eager to marry the prophets lie Selim. So why would the prophets lie some delay this until it's more convenient for him and then put himself through this hardship of trying of now the divorce of eight and and things of
that, sir? Number two, that you know, and they interpret what took 15 FC come Allahumma de that you hide in yourself what Allah would make public that this is the prophesy sums love for her. And as you know, I this Allah he says, you know, the idea that this that the secret that supposedly the prophesy son was holding was his love for Xena is suppose that a man falls in love with another man's wife, you're claiming that He's morally bound to speak of that love in public? Would God criticize a man who could not help his feelings if he suppressed such a love? And kept it to himself? Would he be better rewarded if he were to write some love poems expressing his feelings? It
doesn't make sense. So to try to take that eye and say the prophets lie some suddenly saw her and said Subhanallah, I'm in love with her now and I'm gonna go cause a headache for myself to marry her doesn't make sense whatsoever. So that sort of disqualifies it from that perspective. So what was the secret that Allah is talking about? It's the mandate that Allah had revealed to Fifi enough cecum Allah HomeHub de, that Zaid will divorce Xena and you will marry Xena.
Zaid will divorce Xena and you will marry Xena and the profit science and I'm duction NAS. He was worried about what that what the people are going to say like what is that? Right? How are people going to react to that because the prophets like Selim had adopted as a little the Allahu Taala and who he did to Benny and Zaid was Noseda bin Mohammed. So what was the public perception going to be and Allah was
saying to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that the mandate was going to come down anyway, don't hold this in yourself. Allah has a greater wisdom, just like Allah had a greater wisdom for letting the marriage happen. Allah has a greater wisdom for the divorce that's going to happen now as well. So let's kind of break this down a bit and sha Allah to Allah and then we'll get into the virtues and the story of Zenodo the Allah Tada and which I really want to get into when Allah says, because it's going to make sure that it has make a lot more sense to you, Matt can and Mohammed and other Academy radical Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not the father of one of you. Why is
it so important to say the prophets lie some does not biologically have a another son. Because if the prophets I send them has a biological son, the spiritual, political and material implications of that were going to be huge. So the annulment of adoption, and removing any type of error to the profit slice I'm from a biological perspective, means that no one can lay claim to prophethood or political authority based upon the profits license my father. So that's number one. It's extremely important to eliminate that before it even happens because of the political ramifications of that because the idea back then is father transfers power to son. Now Subhanallah with that being said,
I shuffled the alarm and has an authentic hadith about a little the law and
I thought about this when I visited the grave of Zayed how to follow the law and when Subhanallah you settled the Allah Allah says the Prophet sighs I'm never sent out an army, except that he puts Zaid in charge of it and she's
says whose eyes his father Abubaker is just as if Zaid was alive the prophets lie some would have made him the Khalifa.
That's what she says. If Zaid was alive, the prophets lie some would have appointed him as Khalifa because of his being his son No because of his righteousness. This is Hebrew rasool Allah so Allah is and this is the beloved one of the prophets like Selim, Zaid was molded and raised by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and encompass so much beauty. So at Isha is saying if he was alive, he would have been appointed as the Khalifa. So Allah subhanaw taala removed at Tibet Omni, which is to ascribe a son to yourself and look at the wisdom because if you're as eight I went from being Zaidan Hadith it says aw Muhammad to now being Zaidan Hadith again. How does Allah subhanaw taala
compensate as a though the Allahu Taala and hope we're no longer being Zaid Mohammed? He mentioned his name in the Quran. The only companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whose name is in the Quran. Philomena cada was a dune minha Quran the word Naka. Allah mentions his name, it'll be a lot of time to handle so the compensation for no longer being Zaid, the son of Muhammad, is that you are the only companion of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam named in the revelation of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And your name is recited as a bad from all of the Muslims as an act of worship from all of the Muslims for all time. Now, I'm going to hit one more thing and Charlotte's I
then go back to the marriage beyond HIFF the Knesset, which is to preserve lineage, what's the wisdom of Allah prohibiting to Bennani prohibiting adoption because effectively now, when Allah subhanaw taala, solidifies the divorce of zayde, from Xena and then orders the profit slice I'm to marry Zane up, right, he breaks completely the institution of Tibetan knee, which is known as adoption. And for us living in a world where adoption is synonymous with charity, generosity, we see that and we think to ourselves, why eliminate an institution of good, why eliminate an institution of charity. And the reason being is that in that society, to Ben knee was actually a means of
exploitation and evil. So go back to the socio historic context. So just to quote from the article. Examples of this principle include the pre Islamic sanctioning of the coercive marriage between a son and his stepmother at the death of the Father. That was actually a practice that the Arabs had, without consent of the stepmother, by the way. So to Benny, you could literally adopt someone and they inherit your wife after death and God and in the days of ignorance without even the consent of the stepmother. In fact, not just the son but all of the deceased males heirs were given carte blanche to what any female member of the deceased households including wives and daughters to bendy
was also used to appropriate the wealth of an orphan. So you find an orphan. If that orphan inherited something, if you're a more powerful tribe, you're my son now, and I can take everything that belongs to you to then knee Subhanallah in our in our minds adoption is to take someone in and foster and care for them. And that time, that was a means of appropriating the wealth of an orphan of a wealthy orphan. It was also used sometimes to hide the crime of Zina to hide the crime of fornication and adultery. So in conclusion, adoption provided no added social benefit to individuals who could realize far more gain by simply becoming a Hanif
an ally, to a tribe. And in this context, it was imperative to entirely abolish an institution that was at best, inherently functionless and at worst, fostered oppression. And for a practice that was as deeply entrenched in society. This wasn't going to work unless it had prophetic precedents. The only way this institution was going to be abolished from the community of the prophets lie Selim is if it had a function in the life of the prophet Sallallahu, alayhi, wasallam
Subhanallah with all of that, look at all the ayat that came down about caring for the orphan, Kathy, really a team taking care of orphans, foster care, adoption, without Tibetan knee, bringing in children into the home and raising them as your own. All of that was not just maintained, it was actually encouraged and it became a new feature of that civilization that used to bury kids alive when they saw them have no benefit. So that's the wisdom of the prohibition of Tibet money through something as solid as the institution of marriage. So Allah subhanaw taala, divorces zayde from Xena and now orders the marriage of the Prophet slice unsustainable the Allah Tada mmm hmm years later,
and what is a noble the Allahu Anhu Allah Allahu Akbar, and she fell into such such that the sugar, so she goes into prostration and she starts to celebrate, and this is what she had wanted the entire time.
And subhanAllah this happens five years after hijra, right before Hadith to live right before the slander of actual the law on which gives you some more context into why Hamza bin Jax might have fallen into the crime of slandering, essentially Allah Tada and so this is right before that, Xena but all the Allahu Taala Anna is married to the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam and Anasazi Allahu taala. And who says about the marriage of Xena while the low and he says my old alma Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Anambra 10 Min Nisa he ACARA of La Mina Hola, Miranda, Xena. The prophets lie some did not have a wedding. That was as nice as the wedding of Zainab put his his idea
of nice the profit slice on actually slaughtered a goat.
Alright, so because most of the time it was eat some date paste and a little bit of bread was the last lie Salem.
Actually, Atlanta home HUBZone. Well, Ackman had to tell Roku he actually sold in Salem, slaughtered an animal and fed them bread and meat until there was enough that was even left over afterwards. So what makes this marriage so interesting that Xena would have the allowed Santa Ana would always talk about Xena had a famous statement she would say in Allah and Kahani for Santa, Allah marry me from the heavens. So the Quran served as my Nikka Allah married me from above seven heavens so you're going to see now why Isha and Zainab used to always get into it. I saw the Allahu Anhu used to boast Gibreel Ali Salam married me off
Xena above the law and how would respond and say well fine Allah married me off.
Okay, and as of that'd be narrates for so what Allahu Taala Beanie
Baby he Salah Arisa minasi Kitabi he Billa Walia wanna Shahid really interesting? The marriage of Xena is unlike any other marriage contract in history it's actually the Quran because there was no really no witnesses were all witnesses to the marriage of the prophets like some sustainable the a lot of time.
And she used to for candidate tough huddled with Alec and Omaha and what many she used to say from a place of boastfulness he used to say zoologia couldn't, hardly couldn't, was a watch and Ilan Minh fell PRC that your family's married you off I was married by Allah Subhana Allah from above his throne. And she used to say that three things that ALLAH blessed me with that I was married from above seven heavens, Allah was my guardian. Allah is the One who married me off. And she said the Ayat of hijab came after me. And she said, and I'm the closest to the Prophet. So I said, I'm in relationship in terms of her blood relationship to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what's
the story there? And so the allotted time and who he narrates, when the prophets lie, Selim marrieds, a number of the a lot of Thailand, they had the walima which was the same. The prophets lie some gave the same Mahalo to all of his wives. Right. sallallahu alayhi wasallam there was a group of men that came to the house of the Prophet sighs I'm so people were coming into the house, they would sit, they would eat, they would leave. And there was a group of men that came and sat down and they didn't leave.
The prophets like Selim was too shy to say, can you go home? No. All right, the party's over go home. So Rasulullah Salallahu Salam, what does he do? He gets up to leave himself thinking if I leave my house, they'll get up and leave too, but they just stay there and kept talking.
So the Prophet SAW Salem left his home for atta who Jura Omaha and what many years drew we are there and this is beautiful. He went to his wife SallAllahu sallam, he greeted each of them, he made your art for them, and they made your art for him. SallAllahu wasallam. So he went to visit his wife sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And they wished him well, they made your art for him, he made the art for them. And he came back and they were still there. Salah Hardy was just like certain fruits a lot comes down to set some boundaries for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Here, the boundary of the hijab for Omaha to mean which was the curtain in the home. So obviously, the hijab, as it applies to all women was was made mandatory, but the hijab as in the curtain that was established in the home. So if you look at the portrayals of the original, lots of the the chambers of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the wives of the Prophet slicin would speak from literally behind the curtain in their home to people when they would come to visit them. So Zenodo the law and he was saying this was the context for this. So what happens with Zenodo the Allahu Tada and obviously as we said, you can tell right away why you shouldn't be allowed in Xena below the law
and are going to have a particular dynamic here. So the story of the unsalted bringing the gifts to the house of the Prophet slice that I'm in it says house and Zane up not liking that. And Xena Brody Allah and her coming and complaining to the prophets lie some and then I saw the low on her,
chastising her back a scatter Ha, right it's completely silencing her and the prophets
Why is that? Um says that's the daughter of aboubaker Leave me out of it. So that's one Hadith that would if the slander of it shall have the Allahu
isa praises Xena. Why? Because Zainab had a chance to take some shots at Isha when she was slandered. But what does she say? She says that when the profit slice I'm asked Xena what she thought about Isha, Zainab said Ya rasool Allah, me summary will bacillary Allah Hema and him to Allah, O Messenger of Allah, I'll protect my eyes and I'll protect my ears. While Allah he I don't know except for good of her. And Isha praises Xena and says for Osama holla Bill worry that Allah protected her with her righteousness. She was such a righteous woman that she couldn't slander even then it was her sister Hannah, who's who's a companion may Allah be pleased, again comes out of a
great deal of trauma here. Right? But she's saying Zainab had too much Taqwa to take part in that slander, the story of a Tahitian sort of the terrain that the prophets I seldom would go to the house of Xena, but of the Allahu anha and Xena had a particular type of honey that the prophets lie some love and Hafsa and Isha. May Allah be pleased with them said let's tell the prophets lie some when it comes to our homes, that Your breath smells like mawatha that Your breath smells bad when you come so that we can dissuade the Prophet slice them for visiting Xena while the Allahu Tada and, and this is as in Sahih Bukhari.
The prophets lie Selim when he was asked, Did you eat Magoffin? What What is it with your breath? He said, law without kidney Quinn to Ashraf or Isilon and designup, naughty Josh Phelan, rue de la who the prophets I said, I'm sorry I drank honey in the house of Xena below the Allah Mmm hmm. And I will not return to it. What God health to learn to de vida vida, and he took an oath Radi Allahu Allah salAllahu Alaihe salam from Eastern half said that they will not conceal that secrets or they will not make public that secret that the prophets lie some said I will not eat her honey anymore. Another Islamophobic narrative and so it's it's a Hareem that is debunked week, a SunnyD. According
to be Rahim, Allah debunks all of them that the secret of the prophets lie Selim was this that he told them not to make public, the city that the prophets lie some said I will not return to drinking that honey so you have the story of a Tahiti then you have the story of arity calf as we come into the last 10 days of Ramadan, I'm getting the conflict out of the way so I can get to the qualities Alright, so let's just go through all the conflicts really quick.
In the last 10 nights of Ramadan, the prophets like Selim obviously used to do what used to pitch his tent in the masjid and the prophets like somewhat isolate himself in worship for the entirety of those last 10 Nights. So, the prophets like Selim did that one one year and I saw the law and as the prophets like some Can I pitch a tent next to you. Prophets like some said, go ahead. So Hafsa asked to add a shirt shows you the way the camps are. Hafsa asked to add Isha, can you ask the Prophet size and if I can pitch a tent to so half the pitch the tent next to the profit slice on them too. And Zainab said that and said Wait, if they're pitching a tent, I'm gonna go pitch a tent as well.
So the prophets I send them who's coming to the masjid sitting in his tent symbolizes someone to spend the last 10 nights of Ramadan, worshiping Allah and remembering Allah Now he's got I should have said and Xena but they've got their tents around him SallAllahu sallam, and the prophets lie some came out and he said, and then we're gonna be harder, not gonna be more executive. He said, are they seeking to do something writes us through this or is this something else the prophets lie some said you know what? You stay in your tents. I'm going home. And the prophets lie Selim did not do arity calf that year. But the prophets lie. Saddam did an extra 10 nights the next year. So he said,
You know what, if you're coming to do it, or if you're going to do air to calf, you all stay in your tents, and I'm going to go back home sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this was the the intensity of that competition that they had with each other. And I say this Subhanallah because it makes the qualities more beautiful when they start to praise the qualities of one another. And when we talked about Sofia, or the Allahu taala, and her Sofia,
you know, and she'll probably be the next lecture we do after Ramadan in sha Allah Tirana. But with Sofia, or the Allahu anhu, in particular, because she was a convert from Judaism. Right? The insults of Sophia was at Yahoo, dia, the Jewish woman. Right, so Xena was one of those who also insulted Sophia will the Law and the Prophets lie some was very upset about that. And he didn't talk to her for some time. So the Lavorgna Salam, when she insulted Sophia in that way. So she had that temper as well where she snapped at Sophia with the low tide and in that way, now I want to get to her qualities. And I start with her qualities by saying one thing Subhanallah what stuck out to me this
time in particular, when going through the preparation for this lecture, was the effect the profits and Iceland
had on people, particularly in regards to their attachment to the hereafter and their detachment from this world. And and actually, you know, Abdullah No, I'm not gonna answer the Ilhan Omar has a beautiful statement he says couldn't no matter how Sunni Allah He Salah Are you saying we were with the Prophets lie Selim, when an accurate word to him on a dunya all we cared about was the hereafter. We could care less about this dunya like when we were with the Prophet slice um, all we cared about was the hereafter the world suddenly had no meaning the material world suddenly meant nothing to us we became entirely detached because you're with the Prophet slice on them. Look at the
way that your iman is going to be raised. Look at the way your faith is going to be raised and suddenly you rise in the ranks and you become attached to something else. This is a woman that comes from royalty. And I want you to observe the change that's going to happen in her life while the Allahu Taala and
you shall have the allow on her says about Xena. What are the 1100 remember Eastern Xena were competitors. Right? Isa says out of all the ways the prophets lysozyme me and Zane have used always go at it. But she says Mara Ito and riot and cut hyaluron for demon Xena. What at Poly LA? What a stalker. Hadith. We're all solid Russian. What are Alana Amana was sadaqa This is a high praise. She said, I have never met a woman in my life. Who was better in her religion than Xena. Who had more consciousness of Allah than Xena was more God fearing than Xena, Osaka Hadith who spoke the truth like Xena. Remember even in those moments she only said good about it shall be allowed out. What
else are Lohan and she used to maintain the ties of kinship? What are Alana and Anna Tom was sadaqa and who was better or more trustworthy and more charitable than Xena. I mean, she checks all these boxes. And that you saw the alarm on her said no one was like Xena. Well, the Allahu Anhu in this regard. So when you talk about a competitor you talk about competitor and height as well competitor and good as well. Hence, take that story of Eric decaf. And look what happens a few years later. The prophets lie Selim enters into the masjid and he sees a rope hanging between two pillars. And he says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what is that rope? And they said her there hablan LeSean up. This
is a nubs rope. Zainab is rope that's interesting. So the prophets like some said, What do you mean Xena was rope. And they said Jada's sort of luck. She comes to the masjid at night. And she prays all night long. And when she gets tired, she leans on the road probably a lot of time on Subhanallah I think about the righteousness and the dedication that this woman suddenly has. This is a woman that comes from royalty that a few years ago is not that person right? Now she's in the masjid and she's leaning on a rope so she can keep herself praying all night and the prophets lysozyme said, you know, that's not the right way, Hulu that you should remove the rope and he said SallAllahu
Sallam that a person should pray up to their chakra up to their energy. Once a person gets to a point where they cannot understand what they're reading anymore they get too tired fairly accurate he sounds like someone you should sit down that's too much at that point when it comes to PA so some of some of you that come in so we if you start falling forward and you keep bumping the person in front of you in the back especially those first few nights as you're starting to get used to it it's okay you can quit after six lockers All right, if you don't even know where you are anymore if the biryani that you had for thought was too heavy and it's messing with your senses probably try
something different. Now you can eat buddy honey for a thought its head up but at that point the province lies and I'm saying when you don't even know what you're saying anymore. Stop. That's too much. Right? But it shows you how Zaina little the law and how is developing a habit of TM so I want to actually go through the habits number one is PM.
Number two, the description of Xena Buttle, the Allahu Taala is that after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away Xena but all the Allahu Allah did not leave her home. Now why is that said about her in a sense of praise that she spent her days and her nights between the Quran and between the AMOLED It was as if nothing else existed in this world. Subhan Allah so she became this Zahida this aesthetic that was so incredible and unbelievable. To the rest of society. How is this woman so righteous? Well, the Allahu Taala and her staying in her place of a bow that worshipping Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. And of course, the sadaqa of Xena Radi Allahu Taala Anna is going to
be her greatest traits, Xena but all the Allahu Anhu was narrated. They said that money in the hand of Xena was like charcoal. It was like you're putting a burning piece of charcoal in her hand. That anything that touched her hand left her hand just as quickly while the Allahu Taala enhanced sadaqa remember
The woman that came from from from royalty and look what's happening to her. What do you think happened to her being in the presence of the Prophet slice on him for just four years? Right, that completely reshaped her view of this dunya to where money would not stay in her hand except like a burning piece of chalk charcoal. And I installed the Allahu Anhu says, When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was dying, and as I said, we don't have much about Xena but all the Allah I know because she died so early. Right? We only have about 11 Hadith from her by the way, because she died so early. Isha says when the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam was dying, what is the concern of
every person around him? When do we get to join you? Right so faulty model the Allah and has told you're going to be the first one to join me. And faulty model the Allah Allah is laughing, laughing 21 year old woman, because she's going to be the first one to die after the prophets lie Selim. So the wives of the Prophet SAW Salem are curious who gets to be with you first. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said, You have to bear only 12 Hakuna Jada, the one with the longest arm will be the first one to follow. The one who has the longest arm will be the first one to follow me. So I shall have the Allah and her says when the prophets lysozyme passed away. Couldn't either
to Marina fee Beatty, Donna Bardot frt Rasulullah Salallahu Salam that when the wives of the Prophet sighs I'm used to gather in one of our homes every single time, none would do a Deanna Phil Gee, daddy, not UCLA? Well, we would start to measure arms.
Physically, they take out their arms and they start to measure who has the longest arm. And that's out of their anticipation. They're wanting to die to be with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. That's the mindset. Think about what an incredible person the Prophet's life and that was that that's the effect that he left on these people that they're literally measuring their arm saying which one of us has the longest arm that we can go and join the prophets of life and I'm first and here's what she says which is very interesting. She said the shortest wife of the Prophet slice on them was Xena. Xena Brody Allah, Allah was a very short woman. So the shortest wife of the prophets
lie some was Xena been JAXA, the Allah Tala and the tallest life was soda. Radi Allahu Anna. So we would measure the arms and we would see soda. And it makes sense. So there was very old by the way, Xena probably Allah. Allah was not young, right. She was already married twice. She's in her late 30s When she marries the prophets like Selim. So she's not a young woman, especially in that society. But so little the low on has 60s, right going into her 70s and her arm was longest. So we thought, well, I guess that means soda is going to be the first one to die. Until Xena but all the Allahu Taala and harassed away and we realized what the prophets lice and I'm not when he said a 12
Hakuna Yadon the longest arm is the one who gives the most sadaqa and Xena was the most charitable of all the wives of the prophets Allah Larissa. So she had the longest arm and descriptions Pamela some of the books of Seattle literally, that her hands would I mean, because of her hastiness to give charity when someone would come to knock on her door. They wouldn't even have to get close to the door before they found Zenobia low on his hand already out there extending whatever came to her home, it'll be a lot of time and her being donated for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and this woman who goes on with this legacy Subhan Allah look how it look how this actually takes place
here. Honorable Pablo the Allahu anhu, when he used to send his annual payments to the wives of the Prophet slice on them to take care of them. He was told that Xena below the Allah and has not keeping any of it, but she's giving it all the way.
And aroma or the Allahu Taala and who sent more and sent more and sent more. And Xena below the Allah Allah made a DUA, she said, Allah Hoonah la ou de Cooney kabhi, Doha the nanny for anyone who fitna, Oh Allah, don't let me live to see another year of this money because it's a fitna for me. She lived that life. She had a life of wealth, a life of richness. She's saying, Oh Allah, don't put me to this test again. It's a fitna for me.
And I'm not will the Allahu Anhu. The messenger came back to him that he sent to give her her charity and told him what she said. And all model the Allahu Anhu said, had he Emre Euro do we have here? This is a woman that Allah wants good for something is special about this woman. I mean, the wife of the Prophet slice
this woman Allah wants something special for her. So Amato, the Allahu Anhu went personally to her home and sought permission and said I heard what you said. But there is nothing wrong with you taking care of yourself yet women want money. So here is 1000 and this is personal money. This is not from anyone else. This is 1000 that comes from me to you. Please keep them
as soon as all metal the law on her left Xena broke the law and went out the house and distributed and she does it.
And so Pamela this woman in her drop she died before
Next year, the next payment came as she said in her your app. And she died with no possessions in her her JIRA because she even donated her furniture. Now, by the way, when I say this type of stuff, you're like, Well, does that mean I need to go home and donate all my furniture. This is like when Apple Beckett will be alone Hall gives all of his wealth for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. These people were on a different level of Eman and they had a different status. They had a different circumstance you take the lesson from their detachment from this dunya but even the prophets like some would not let other people do it I will back up all the Allah on who did so as a member of the
Allah and has in a different league in this regard. But she even donated the furniture in her home. And what was the furniture of the house of the profits of the license? And she stays in her EBA double the Allahu Tada Anna and look what happens when she gets sick. So she is the first of the wives of the Prophet slice them to go
Subhanallah it's unbelievable. She gets sick. And she says in the cada to caffine well Allah O'Meara so yeah, but I thought a layup because even she said listen, I already prepared my kufrin so she was getting sick and she knew her time of death was coming she was preparing for her meeting with the Prophet Sly Stone for her reuniting with the Prophet sighs. She said, I have a Catherine I've already prepared for myself knowing ometer beautiful Pablo the Allahu Anhu he's going to send some caffeine for me to use, he's going to send some cloth for me to use. She said if that happens for embarrass me, Kevin Fatah Sadako if he sends Kevin's give it away, like don't let me be buried
before you give away those Kevin's. I don't even want the cloth that Omar sends to my house to stay in my house. And she said whatever you can give of my preparation for death in South Africa, give it away whatever is not necessary to actually bury me in the grave. Give it all away for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. So, this was her attitude or the Allahu Taala and her and she passes away it'll the Allahu Taala and her only with the Hydra with the the house that was left behind with the Prophets lie Selim and the Catherine that she had this woman who came from royalty in Makkah, that was considered the elite of the elite. And something happened inside of hurtle the Allahu anha to
where she completely focused herself to being the elite of the Hereafter.
And look how Allah subhanaw taala honors her and her Janaza Subhan Allah was a big deal in Medina because she's the first of the wives of the Prophet slicin To pass away. So she's our first mom to die after the death of the Prophet salallahu Salam. So everyone in Medina, right participates in this janazah they pray their salah, and the message of the prophets lie some they walk out and they wait around the house of Xena but all the Allahu anha where her body will be carried. And her brother, a black man who was the blind companion will be allowed to and home. It's narrated and it's pilots, it's important to see this human side that he wouldn't leave her her bed or the allot of
time that he was holding on to her and he was crying, and he wouldn't leave her bed and all model the alarm I don't know how to, you know, encourage him to basically let her go, you know, and that's something Subhanallah that shows you sometimes you need to know the human love and attachment and the compassion that the Sahaba had for their siblings for each other, especially the love they had for the prophets lie Selim. So Amara de la and we had to prompt him and allow him to come to terms with the fact that she would be very abrupt. He said that through this woman, every blessing that came to our household came to us like Subhan Allah when she was like all the baraka that came in our
household. It wasn't just the Sebata that she was giving that was bringing baraka to her. Everything that she was doing. The Baraka would come to our house, and amaro the Allahu Anhu allowed him to carry her body or to be one of those that carried her body as a means of persuading him to be able to let to let her go from that place. And subhanAllah it was a windy day. So a smart Vince of your mace smart venture mace who was the wife of aboubaker
If you read about a smart Vinter mace snob informace was this incredible woman who was the widow of Jaffa, the widow of Abubaker, the widow of Ali, she married all three men. And she was the one who used to prepare bodies for for burial. So she actually washed the body of herbal Beckett herself, which is why some of them had that have allow for a spouse to wash the body of their spouse on the basis of us not washing the body of aboubaker. So a smart washed her body and a smart said zeyneb was a woman of great height as a woman of great modesty. So let's put a box or let's put her in some sort of a box because it's windy and we don't want the garment to blow off is the first wife of the
Prophet slice on to pass away. So let's give her an honorable barrier. Burial and so they carried her in a box of well I met her brother in the front and some of the noble ones of the companions, the most noble ones of the companions and they covered
The grave of Zenodo the Allahu Anhu. They held a sheet over her grave while they buried her under an Medina, if you go to the bucket when they bury the women, they say that this is the practice of Zeno. They took this from the day of Zeno's death where when a woman is being buried, so that her body does not show and she's being buried, that there's some people that will hold a sheet over while the grave diggers go in, they bury the body of the woman so that the public does not see in especially in a, you know, in a desert environment, where something could be exposed. So they took that they say this is the tradition after the death of Xena all the Allahu Taala and, and so she was
buried while the Allahu anha in the back here and there's a section about here with the wives of the prophets lie somewhere buried she's the first one. All the Allahu anha outwell Hakuna Nia then the longest arm amongst you and that becomes her name and the CLO Subhanallah the longest arm and I'll end with with two things here on sunnah model the Allahu anha who actually was the longest living away from the Prophets lie Selim. When Xena passed away Tila Hamid Ali her she said, may Allah have mercy on her? Well that karats McCarney Hakuna Bina how Avena Isha and she remembered all those times that her and he used to have their arguments, because that was kind of the Spats between Aisha

This was a woman that used to pray at night Salama Pulwama is the description of Hafsa fast all day, pray at night. And she used to do so many good deeds and she gave all of her wealth to the Messiah keen to the poor people. And when she passed away, I saw the alarm and heart was crying and grieving. And there was a surprise like we thought that Zayn and I had beef
with each other right that they used to always have their spots with each other. And he settled the Allahu Taala and her. She praised her when she was crying. She said look at the Herbert Hamidah 1015 Crediton MEFs the Alia Tana Well, Amina said that a beloved and righteous woman has passed away. She was the shelter of the widows and the orphans of Medina. This one woman's Pamela was the shelter of the orphans and the widows of Medina although the Allahu Taala Anna, that is our mother, Xena, Ben jassal, the Allahu Taala Anna, and it's interesting Subhanallah that Xena been to Zima and Xena been Jash were the two women who were most known for their sadaqa from the wives of the Prophet sly
