Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Quran Weekly. This is your brother Omar Suleiman. And we're continuing now with the superstar series. Now, when we look in the scene of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there are two names that are often associated together. In fact, you can make the argument that they're always associated together, and those are Folha ignore, obey the law and obey the law, one of the Allahumma both of the Sahaba has a very, very special place with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. In fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said about to call her and is aware that they are both my neighbors in genda. JOHN, if in general, they are

00:01:00--> 00:01:37

going to be my neighbors in paradise. So let's let's take a quick look at the life of El Hijo de la Hondo and the special quality that we can take from his life. But how about the Allahu anhu he tells the story of his own Islam. He's from the same tribe of Rebecca. So decode the Allahu anhu the tribe of team and he was a tradesman. So he says that he was in Syria, when he saw that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam had left a sham, and among cannon form called huddle they allowed to add on who that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was indeed a messenger of Allah subhanaw taala made his way back to Mecca. And he asked the people he said what happened while I was gone? So they said

00:01:37--> 00:02:12

Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has claimed Prophethood. So follow the law and we went to his relative Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu anhu. And he said, is it Have you heard about what Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is saying? And he said, Yes, and I will record all the Allahu anhu said he is calling to the truth and you should follow him also. So Paul has said I became Muslim. Now call her and abubaker were both high men in their society, Paul huddle, the Allahu anhu being younger, he was only 18 years old. But both of them would have to be tortured. And what the Quraysh would do with the high people in society is they wouldn't torture them out in public, but they would assign them

00:02:12--> 00:02:49

to their relatives. So the person that was in charge of torturing both will record and call her was no foul and no hoilett the brother of Khadija or the low Tatiana, who tied both call her and I will back her up and he would torture them every single day and in fact, call her and I will back it may Allah be pleased with them gain the Nixon nicknames and curry name the two Koreans the two close friends those who are tied together because they were tied together so frequently whenever they would be tortured by no fun. Now if we look at their lives and if we look at the life of been huddled the Aloha on one particular the specific characteristic the specific trait that always

00:02:49--> 00:03:26

stands out is the trait of ehsaan pure excellence plughole. The law one who excelled in everything that he did. He was known for his generosity so much so that saved when was he one of the other awesome oberstein 10 promised paradise he says, well, the law I know that I traveled with Belinda on journeys, I have never seen a person more generous than him in his food and his water and in his clothing. And Paul huddled the Allahu anhu In fact, was given three nicknames by the prophet sallallahu Sallam because of his frequent charity because how he would always you know, stand out and he would always be the one to excel was almost like someone named Paul. Paul had to hide Paul

00:03:26--> 00:04:10

how to recruit and bottle free up all three of them having similar meanings Paul had to hide. Paul had the excellent, Paul had to call her the benevolent Paul Hatton Fayyad, Paul has the over the one who is who is who is excessively generous. So as I said, I'm even recognize those special traits of tall huddled the law as did the Sahaba may Allah be pleased with them all. But the specific incident that you look at with one huddle the alojado to truly understand his excellence, and his son, and his always going overboard, always going, going, you know, going a step further to please Allah subhanho wa Taala was the date of the day that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was was hurt,

00:04:10--> 00:04:47

was beaten, was hurt, had his had the rings of his helmet. So a lot while he was still I'm driven into his cheeks had his front teeth knocked out. solahart he was solemn. One Paul Harold the Allahu taala and who heard that the prophets lie Selim was being attacked, he ran to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he defended the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam so much. So that was in la sala LA and he was selling he would say, later on, he would say, You should have seen me on the day of art. On my right was debri rally his salon on my left was called huddled the Allahu taala. I know. And in fact, Paul ha, may Allah be pleased with him, when he ran to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

sallam when the Prophet slicin was being attacked. An arrow was shot at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and told her the law of Thailand who extended his hand and he and he allowed that arrow to hit his hand and because of that,

00:05:00--> 00:05:35

His hand became paralyzed. He then took his other arm, and he put the Prophet sallallahu usnm over his shoulder, and he guarded the profit slice on them and try to escape that area where the profit slice on him was being attacked. And his daughters he says that my father on that day suffered 24 wounds to his body. One plot huddled the Allahu anhu finally took the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to safety. He laid the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam down and then he fell unconscious because of all of the blood that was coming from him. Abu Bakar inside may Allah be pleased with them both. They said we ran to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Prophet

00:05:35--> 00:05:56

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam directed us to go to the mall, however, the law and the prophets lie Selim was there and he was just staring at all huddled the Allahu anhu and he was just just admiring the efforts that all huddled they allowed Thailand who put in and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said something very special about thought.

00:05:57--> 00:06:40

He said, right then and there, man ellada and young vote ILA Shahid, young seolads laiki. fairly young voter ella palatte of Norway the law. Whoever wants to see a martyr, a walking and living martyr, walking on his two feet. Then let him look at Paul huddle the Allahu taala and admire him so Subhanallah you imagine he already had those nicknames and he also now gains the nickname of the walking Shaheed the living martyr, and I will record all of the Allahu anhu In fact, when he used to look at the day of or when he used to reflect on the day, he said that he will call her the day of offered is the day of thought huddle, the allowed to Orlando you know, because of how special the

00:06:40--> 00:07:17

sacrifice of tall huddle, the Allahu anhu was that day. So tell her like the others. He served with the Prophet sly Solomon every battle except for budget, because he was with sorry, he didn't know they only allow one home of the Allahumma and they were scouting in the area of a sham when the Battle of brothers took place. And by the time they got back, the battle had already had already finished and Paul had of the Allahu anhu he asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Do I have my reward? Oh, Allah, and the Prophet slicin him said, laka Samak, you have your reward. But how did the Allahu anhu he wasn't necessarily

00:07:17--> 00:07:52

thinking of the spoils of war, because the prophets I said, I mentioned the spoils of war. They're like a sama plant. How do they allow and who was a person of a son he was thinking about something totally different. He said, what actually are a pseudo law, and my reward and archaea, oh prophet of Allah. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, We're lucky, and you have your edges. So that shows you the mentality of thought on the long side. I know he wasn't just concerned about the spoils. He was concerned about the pleasure of Allah subhanho its Allah. And so we can look back on the day of the day that many people fled from the side of the Prophet slice them, and we know that

00:07:52--> 00:08:30

is the day of fun huddled the Allahu taala and who, because he was standing there with the Prophet slice of them, shielding the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this was thought of the Allahu anhu every time Rasulullah sallallahu Sunnah made a call for anything. pothead was always the first one to volunteer himself, whether it was subaqua, whether it was his own life, or whatever it may have been done huddled Allah Han who was always the first one to come forward to to strive in the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala and even unfortunately, towards the end of his life on huddled the Allahu tada on who witnessed the murder of Earth Manuel Viola Han who and this murder it hurt him so

00:08:30--> 00:09:10

much. It hurt him so much. I mean, but how loved he sent his own son Mohammed to stand at the door of earth model of the Allahu anhu whenever the house of Earth man was under seat and so one thought how was this whenever it's done was assassinated. Paul Harold the Allahu anhu was amongst was from the the people of the army of Chateau de la Honda, who was demanding that the killers on earth man be pursued. And whenever I saw the Allahu Allah and Paul hattons Abed, may Allah be pleased with them both came to the came to meet without evil, the Allahu anhu. And they asked Allah to pursue the killers of Earth man. And they came to an agreement amongst each other. As we know, our beloved No,

00:09:10--> 00:09:50

Saba had both the camp of Arusha and the camp Valley attacked. And because of that, a battle ensued between the army of Isaiah and the army of Allah, may Allah be pleased with them both. Both of them not intending to hurt the other, both of them not intending to cause to have this battle, but both thinking that they were attacked and fallen out of the law. I knew he was only there because of his love for Earth man. In fact, this was his son, he made the deal. He said, Allah has given me the earth man, Oh Allah take for me for this man had total bought until you are pleased. And Paul huddled the Allahu taala and who was murdered on that day he was killed on that day, an ideal of the

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

law when we came to call her and he wiped his face. And he started to cry. And he kissed him on the forehead and he said

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

ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make you and I amongst those who Allah subhanaw taala says when as Atlanta Thea Kuru be him in Linden, one and Allah sorauren motorcar bidding. And we have taken from their hearts, all forms of grudges everything that they had against each other. And we made them brothers on thrones on high couches with the cosmoline staring at one another in agenda. So this was pulled out of the Allahu anhu the person who always went the extra step who always wanted to make sure he did everything with Exxon. So I asked you, whenever you do something whenever you give sadaqa whenever whenever you do anything for the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala How much are you

00:10:39--> 00:11:15

really putting into it? How much sun is there in it? How much excellence is there in it? And I asked Allah Subhana which Allah to allow us to be joined with Paul Hello the Allahu anhu After all, as he is a neighbor of the prophets of Allah, Islam and Jonathan for those so we asked a lot to allow us to be there neighbors in Jonathan for those a lot and I mean, I'll see you next week and shout LA for the superstar series jazak malachite on salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
