Santa Monica Welcome to live better castle Koran weekly This is your brother almost a man Welcome back to the superstar series. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that there's no doubt that Khadija the Aloha time was the best woman of her times. And she along with her daughter are amongst the four women that protected their faith. So Pamela So think about that this woman will be allowed Tyler and her before the revelation of Salah before the revelation of sleep before the revelation of his account or Hajj before the revelation of most of the rules and legislation for these are the elements are managed to perfect her email. And you might wonder how is that even possible because
the prophets lie Selim is the one who told us that Ekman and what we mean by imana the most perfect of the believers in their faith are the ones
who have the best character. And Khadija will be a lot of times even before Islam was known as a flaw here on the pure woman. And Pamela you see the marriage between her and the Prophet slicin um, she is a daughter of two royal people, Hawaii Island and Fatima and she was a rich woman, you know, very wealthy businesswoman. She had been married before to some of the you know some of the leaders of grace, but she became a widow both times and SubhanAllah. She wants to marry the prophets of Allah hottie was someone who was 15 years younger than her. Why? Because she started to ask around about his character. She asked me Saba, she asked Nafisa. She wanted to know what the prophets
license character was like, because she's seen so much honesty and truthfulness from him. And that was her reason for pursuing him, in accordance with the command that would come later on either attack him until Dona Dena Hola, hola, como faza we do for inlanta file, or that's the later part of that if someone comes to you with good religion and good character than you marry that person, do not reject that person. And Subhanallah at that time, you didn't have the revelation yet. You just had good character. And that's why the Prophet solahart he was someone was pursued by her and that's why it also last time I accepted this woman for marriage, who was 15 years older than him and was a
widow two times and had a son hinda behala. And all that baggage that would keep people away from from a divorcee or from a widowed woman. Today, once upon a law. It was they came together for character and that's why there's not a single narrated fights, or arguments between the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and Khadija all the time, but rather their marriage was praised by all of the people of Mecca. Now, when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had bestowed upon him the love for isolation and seclusion and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam started to go to head off and started to contemplate and Subhanallah for that, for anyone who's been to Mecca, you could see that head off is
an hour's climb at least and that's with all of the stairs and things of that sort. Imagine what it's like for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam at that time to climb up there. And Khadija all the time, she didn't say to the Prophet slicin um, you know, why are you staying away from home? Why are you spending weeks up there and sometimes over a month, in fact, she supported the profits of the Laurie's and I've been trying to find guidance and trying to find those answers. And she herself while the Aloha Thailand her you know, think about this, by the time the Prophet slice arm is 4655 now she's climbing up that mountain how to take food to the Prophet slice and to comfort the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wasallam and then when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes down from LA and it comes to Khadija the allowed Thailand with the famous words of the loonie embrace me cover me up seeking comfort and Khadija will be allowed to add on She didn't say to the Prophet slice lm you know, maybe you shouldn't be going out there so long. Maybe you should stay home or often maybe you should have maybe maybe you shouldn't have been out there in the first place. She didn't say to the prophets I seldom You know, I think you're getting a little crazy on it. She didn't say to the prophets Allah Allah hi is that um I think that it must be some demons or something like that.
Rather, she would reassure the prophets lie Selim she supported him emotionally and religiously here. Think about this. She says to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah He de la musica la vida. Allah subhanho wa Taala will never disgrace you. Why did she say that Allah will never disgrace you. And she started to mention in Mecca apostle Rahim because you uphold the ties of kinship, you're good to your neighbor, you're generous to your neighbor, you know, you you treat the orphans. Well, you take up the cause of the one who has been wronged. In essence, what is she saying to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam she's saying a loss of Hannah hoods atta loves you for the same
reasons that I love you and the same reasons that I that I pursued you for marriage. Again, good. Holyoke is good. A man. Good character is good. He man. She recognized those things in the profits on the lahardee would sell them and look at the way that this wife speaks about her husband. You know how beautiful that a spouse will speak about her spouse or a spouse.
speak about his spouse in that beautiful manner. This is how I see you. And not only did she support him emotionally here, she said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, let's go to what I could do NOFA let's go to my cousin who's a biblical scholar, and let's see what he has to say. She's the one reassuring him So lahardee was sort of taking him over to work up to who would reveal to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that this was his first encounter with gibreel Allah, his Salah, think about this, and then a little the aloud to Daniel, who was raised in that household. He recalls the nights where it also lost a little lahardee was that I would wake up and pray and Khadija will be
alone, Tatiana, would wake up and stand right next to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and also pray. I mean, that's, that's incredible. So you didn't say to the Prophet slice of it, I don't know what this journey is that you're going on right now. But you know, I'm not gonna stand up and pray but I'll let you stand up in prayer. She stood up and she prayed with him. sallallahu wasallam. So she gave him emotional support. She gave him religious support when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam called to his people, and the people rejected him. She didn't say we were doing good in society, we had high status and now our reputation is being tarnished because she has a BA and he is a slob to
kill me and so a lot of it was solemn. She stood by his side reassured him, it's okay Allah subhana wa tada will bring victory to you, Allah subhanaw taala will honor you. And then she even went to to the length of financially supporting the Prophet sallallahu it was sometimes called and mission and purpose. And this woman who lived her life like a queen would support the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with everything that she had. And Subhan Allah, even when times got so tough in the boycotts on Benny Hashem, and Betty McCollum. And this woman who lived their whole life in these, you know, in luxury, is now not even able to eat and she's in her 60s. So Pamela and the only one
who's delivering food is Hakeem ignore his will be a lot of time I'm the nephew of Khadija or the Aloha Tatiana, he would sneak food to her, and some you know, some nourishment to her and to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in Abuja had caught him and even stopped that route. And this woman never says to the profits, I'm looking at where we are, look at what's happened to us, but rather, she stands by Him with all loyalty. And she says to the profits, and she says to the profits of the licen, and that she's by his side all the time. And that's why when the profits are the largest, and I'm lost her as a result of not as a result of not being able to eat and drink properly, this woman
was eating leaves all the time, you know, and the profit slice on him loses her. Some sources say three days, some say three weeks. So in a matter of weeks after he loses his uncle Apple bought it. When the profit slice and loses her he was devastated Allahu Salatu was Salam. And she was 65 years old on the part whenever whenever she died, and the prophets lie Selim was still a 50 year old men but a very youthful 50 year old men could have married you know many young women right away and this was his opening right? But the Prophet slicin I'm always remembered the loyalty that she had towards him in the profit slice I'm only show showed her the greatest loyalty and that's why I shall be
allowed to Atlanta, who says that I never was jealous of any of the wives of the Prophet. So I said, I'm except for Khadija. And I've never even seen her before. I've never seen Khadija villalta before. But because the prophets lie Selim was obviously so moved, you know, moved every time mention of any mention of her was made. If the prophets I seldom heard the voice of her sister calling upon him, he would say Allahu Allah or like it's harder or like a toddler he would run because he remembered the voice of Khadija la Viola tada and she says, the prophets lie some never slaughtered a sheep or a goat, except that he sent some of it to Hadees about the Allahu taala on
her. And she says that the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam anytime she was mentioned, you know, it would be visible on his face that he that he was moved, he would send gifts to her friends out of out of his loyalty to her Salawat in English. And she says that one time I got jealous and I said to the prophets, I send them you know, shouldn't you have gotten over now this old woman of grace, that Allah subhanaw taala has replaced with something better and the prophets eyes on them became so angry, and he says well law he, he says, I swear by Allah, Allah did not give me something better than her. And he started to mention all of the forms of loyalty and with that, I'm going to be
careful to be a nurse. She believed in me when no one else believed in me, or some other company it could have been us and she trusted me. She considered me truthful when other people believed me when other people denied me.
Well amphicar to be in harmony in us and she spent on me when no one else would spend on me. What exactly Allahu Allah subhanaw taala gave me children from her is how many I will add an ISA and Allah subhanaw taala did not give me children from anyone else. And so Palawan honor Khadija will be allowed to add on is that it was only the children that were given to the Prophet Sly Stone through her that the lineage of the prophets lie Selim would survive Subhana Allah and when the prophets lie Selim saw even in the Battle of bedeutet
When asked who was married to their daughter, the prophet size seven Khadija with the Aloha, Xena. What the law of Thailand Whoa, I was married to her before janelia. And here you had before Islam and here you had the prophets why Selim now capturing his son in law who came to kill Him and who came to fight against them. And zeyneb sends her necklace, the necklace that was given to her by her mother, her These are only allowed to add on on her wedding night as ransom for allowance, her husband, and the prophets license him sees that necklace. And it moves him so much that the prophets lie some says to the Sahaba in [???] to him, if he will send her back her prisoner and send her back
this necklace. Why did he say in [???] to him, if you will, because it wouldn't be fair to those Ahava, who had to you know, who had to observe all of these rules and all of these laws, if the prophets lie, some exercise, you know that that? That exception just for himself. So he said to the Sahaba in chittum, if you all will send back her prisoner, her husband and send back that necklace and the prophets lie Selim, again remembering Khadija will be allowed to Atlanta and think about this because of her loyalty to the prophets lie Selim gibreel Ali salam, the one who was sent to the revelation of the Quran is sent by Allah subhanho wa Taala to the Prophet so I sell them to give
Salaam Salaam not to the prophets like Selim, per se, but to Khadija to the along tada and says to the soulless Isola that your wife Khadija is coming to you right now and a loss of hundreds Alison says Salaam and gibreel Ali Salaam Sansa salanter and gives her the glad tidings of a house in paradise with no noise and no distress. How to love because of what she provided to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in this life of silence and tranquility and contentment and also provided the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not with stress but rather she was his source of stress relief. And it was when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam last Khadija will be allowed
to add on a third MSA that's when Allah subhana wa tada gave the Prophet slicin Allah that's what Allah gave the prophets like some of those five daily prayers he lost his emotional support and Khadija will be allowed. And also la slice Allah tasted the bitterness of this dunya and that's when a las panatela gave him Allah Subhana Allah to replace that emotional loss that emotional devastation of the prophets lie Selim. And one also lost a sale and went back to Mecca. The only one he remembered whenever they told the Prophet sallallahu wasallam you know, where would you like to stay? Where would you like where would you like us to, to put to place your tents? Where would you
like us to have your residence? Would you like to stay in this person's house or that person's house? I sell them said no. I want to stay in June, which is where Khadija will be a lot of Thailand is buried, and the profit slice of them, just as she believed in him, emotionally supported him financially supported him. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam responded to each one of those supports with and with love and with loyalty and we take from that woman will be a lot of time and the beautiful quality of alpha and good character we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us like colossal loss Iceland and Khadija de la Tatiana in all of our affairs, and also of course,
specifically in our marriages. And we asked the last panel to grant us that concept of loyalty and that great character, and we asked the last panel tied to better our aim and as a result alignment. I mean, does that come along Ohio Western armonico Morocco to labor Carter.
So in essence, Khadija accounts by herself with her. God what is wrong today? All right, sorry. One more time. This audio is brought to you by Muslim Central. please consider donating to help cover our running costs and future projects by visiting www dot Muslim central.com forward slash donate
