Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh through the great Sahabi

00:00:09--> 00:00:17

by the name of tharla had been up there, man, guess what? It was not that old. He was almost 16 years old.

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

And one day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent him to do something he used to use him to do errands on his behalf.

00:00:27--> 00:00:30

And he never came back.

00:00:31--> 00:00:34

What happened to him while he was on his way

00:00:35--> 00:00:38

to do what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked him to do.

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

He happened to look at one of the houses.

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

And there was a woman who was taking a shower.

00:00:51--> 00:00:55

So unfortunately, he looked at her once or twice.

00:00:57--> 00:01:01

And once he did that, he realized that he committed a major sin.

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

And he shouldn't have done this. She was so scared that he started crying, and he said, Now, Allah subhanaw taala is going to reveal a Koran. And I'm going to be living with this for the rest of my life. And even after I die, this is going to be in the Quran. And he was so much regretful, and he said, Allah subhanho, wa Taala is going to mention me, amongst the monoterpene, amongst the hypocrites, and he was so scared. And he felt so bad. So much so that he was not able to go back to the process alone when he was not even able to go back home.

00:01:38--> 00:01:44

So he decided to go somewhere else, and he didn't know what he was going until he ended up

00:01:46--> 00:01:48

staying away in the desert.

00:01:49--> 00:02:02

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam waited and waited. And Taliban never came back. And then after that, the prophets of Salaam asked the Sahaba to look for him. And they looked everywhere, they couldn't find him.

00:02:03--> 00:02:09

So days after days, went by, and Taliban never showed up again.

00:02:10--> 00:02:12

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:02:14--> 00:02:19

you know, brought Omar and others. And he asked them to go and look for him.

00:02:20--> 00:02:21

He said,

00:02:22--> 00:02:26

a pathway fell away, meaning like, just go to the desert and look for him.

00:02:28--> 00:02:47

And they did. And they kept searching everywhere, until they found a mountain. And they found some people having their sheep and cattle around the area. And they asked them, and they give the description of caliber. And then one of those people said, Oh, you mean the one who keeps crying all the time?

00:02:48--> 00:03:14

They said, We don't know that. But what do you know about him? They said, He's a man who lives in that mountain. And he's crying all the time. And all what he does, at the time of sunset, he comes down and he asked us for some milk, and we milk one of the sheep and give it to him, and he will be crying even while he's drinking that milk, and then he'll go back to the mountain.

00:03:16--> 00:03:24

So they waited until sunset and he came and Subhanallah they

00:03:25--> 00:03:26

recognized it is fallible.

00:03:28--> 00:03:34

What happened after that? Sorry, my time is over with continue in the next episode.
