smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah see the masa de nada and he was so happy when I send them a letter he said the beheading he lied to me Dean,
why do you respect his brothers and sisters in Islam?
we are talking about a very important topic which I think is good to to mention and give it some coverage. And this is in relation to those who Allah subhanho wa Taala has chosen
from the generations to accompany his messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam and they also have the companions, Allah subhana wa tada chose the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, for he is the best of all creation, His heart is the most closest to Allah subhanho wa Taala he is their most purest of the creation. So our last pantalla chose him to be the messenger to be sent as a seal of the Prophet hood. May Allah subhanho wa Taala salute him or raise his status. And then Allah chose for the Prophet he chose for him. companions who chose for him a generation who are amongst the best of peoples, for they are the best of generation. They are best people for all time. As a group,
they were people who understood
the message and prior to that they were the ones who responded to the message when our last panel Dan and His Messenger called them AI Latina minister, GMO li la jolla, la salida de Lima he come Are you believe, respond to Allah and His Messenger when they call you to that which gives you life.
So they were the most
the most responsive of beings. They were people who understood
the message and they were ready to give what they can sacrifice. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in many ahaadeeth he mentioned the greenness of the Sahaba the greatness of his companions, for they had been tested by a loss pan Adi, similarly as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was tested, they also tested they were persecuted, they went through difficult times. And they went through much suffering, they had to give up their homes and their families. On many occasions, they had to migrate. They had to, they were ready to sacrifice their lives, their wealth, their wealth for Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah gave them the status that they deserve.
And that's why the Prophet said Cairo nurse corny, the best of all,
humanity is my generation or my century, former la Vina, you yo Luna home from a Latina yo Luna home, then those who follow them, then those who follow them,
and also have in their
life and in their practices. They have demonstrated many great qualities, great qualities for us to follow in as well. As we have in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a great
path, a great set example, to follow. The Prophet molded the Sahaba into great role models for society in all different aspects. And that's why when you look at the Sahaba, you will see that they have a great variation in terms of what they presented of attributes.
If you are somebody who is a businessman and somebody who is wealthy and has money then you have a great example in the likes of Horace Mann draw your line North man is not a fan and the likes of the right man even out if you are someone who was pursuant
in knowledge, you have the likes of the whole affair and likes of Abdullah Hebner, Omar and dandelion Massoud Abdullayev, nobis and others will be even more carved in the parameter.
For the women there are examples
of great women in the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the grace I have yet in the children, there are great examples of children starting with Abdullayev in Zambia and dandelion numbers as well and so on. If you look at those who are, you know, in terms of their
physical abilities, their strength, their military capabilities, you will find them there, those who had you know, intellect and the ability to judge and things you have the likes of Allah, you know, the Alliance, those who are able to, you know, have the academic skills, so to speak, you know, people like zedi, Mousavi two, very quickly learn Hebrew, also, he was very good in writing, and he was the one who was one of the writers of the, of the way and so on and so forth, you know, the list can go on and on. So they gave us the great examples of how to lead our lives, how to behave, how to be people in every aspect, you will find something there. And they were ready. In, in a lot of the
scenarios, they understood
their role in society, they're understood their role in this dunya what was requested of them, they had the best understanding of Islam, because they were people who were,
they were people who saw the Prophet slicin. So they knew him, they learn from him, they learn from his teachings, and his practical aspects of dealing with matters how he was a man who looked at making things easy and not hard. They looked at how he dealt with matters, how he addressed people, his easiness with dealing with others, his easiness with dealing with those who are, who were maybe harsh towards him, those who were maybe over lesser,
you know, capacity, a capacity in dealing with, you know, aspects, there are people who are harsh, and they came to the process, and I'm
talking to him harshly, there were people who, maybe were not fully capable of understanding some aspects of a message. So they were asking things which were different, they were people who were, were joking a lot, you know, that the Prophet slicin and they were, and so on, so forth. So they learn from the prophesies. And then they were ready to pass on his practices, his message, his greatness, and even though they knew that, and Medina, was a great place, and they, you know, great place for it, it was a great place to, to the prophet SAW Selim, and he was, he was buried there. And they knew that it was a great resting ground, but they never allow that, to deter them from
going forth going out, you know, setting camp in different places throughout the world. And that's why the Sahaba, you know, you have, so have, you know, in North Africa, and even in Spain, you have them reaching the gates of Constantinople, which is today, Turkey, you had them, you know, buried in the land, beyond the river, which is the land of Persia, and, you know, the middle, middle Asian countries, and so on, so forth. These were people who went out, they went, they carried the message of Islam, and they were ready to, to give, so we have to, it's very important for a Muslim, to learn about the Sahaba, to learn about their qualities to understand their,
their stories, because in their stories, there is a great
a great benefit to us an inspiration to us of how they live their life and how they dealt with difficult times because we all go through hardships, right? We have difficulty in our life, we have troubles, you know, take the usual domestic trouble, you know, somebody might have problems with their wife
or they will think, Oh, well, you know, this is almost like a unique thing to happen and whitening if you look at the look at the wire, you'll see that this isn't even the process, I certainly had issues with his his wife's, you know, and they they did annoy him at some stage, and so on. So these these are human issues, you know, issues related to dealings and trade transactions, you know, even arguments. So all of that was happening. So by reading their stories and looking at those specific areas, you will be able to get some benefit, no doubt for your life, either your current issues or things that may happen to you which you can reflect upon now, Mashallah. There's a lot of work and
