in horns, the fiddle horn will be here on a dog karate
when I will be learning shortly and cinnamon so yeah, the Atma dinner, meaning they can learn
on your political foot I
want to share the
one shot with an article or a sword or sallallahu taala and he was he was about
America was built on a regime similar
in the law home in Ecuador, you saw Long Island and you're living
a lot on Sunday. I don't wanna
specs, respecting listeners.
salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
As was announced,
today's talk is about
the noble companion
of Warby the who,
during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
he featured prominently
the public life of the Muslims.
And he was very close to the messenger, so a lot of it has
given positions of authority and trust.
Unfortunately, he passed away during the khilafah ameerul momineen, above of the alarm.
And there are only
a handful of heavy
fewer than 15 hoodies related from so you're gonna have warming
as a result of which both the fewer number of heavies and the fact that he died very early, during the color for the meter movement and for these reasons, and others,
not much is known about him and nor is he as
famous as some of the other companions, even though during the time of the Prophet, some of the lahardee, some of them he was very prominent, and one of the most beloved companions to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So, hopefully, inshallah, we will learn a bit more about him and be educated about his life, his character and personality. And the purpose and wisdom of
speaking about some learning about the lives of the companions of the alarm
is that we may be inspired and strengthened
and motivated to adopt their noble character to follow in their footsteps, to learn from their example.
One of the most famous scholars and saints of the summer Eman Geneva, the god he
was speaking to students was asked that
is there any benefits in relating the stories and the accounts of the pious people, since it has always been part of learning and Islamic tradition, to relate stories of the piety
of the older man and the soul of the learner and the pious of the summer.
And in many
speeches and lectures
and discussions, in many books as well.
You will find
many stories and accounts from lives of the pious throughout this throughout the centuries of the summer. So is that and biographies have always played a great part in
So is there any purpose? Is there any wisdom in relating the stories as long as of course they are authentic?
So imagine a law, the law, he said, Yes, of course there is these quick benefits.
So, students have asked, Is there any proof of what you say and contend that there is a great benefits in relating and listening to the stories of the past.
So, imagine a world without the evil recited the verse of sort of hold in the Quran in which law says, addressing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what Golden
Rule Sorry, man was a bit too big for that, which Kofi has the hidden half or more tone with me, addressing the messenger sort of the law, it will send them a lot of savings. And indeed,
we do relate to,
of each of the accounts of these messengers.
Such accounts that through them,
or such an account that through
with a bit of a key for us that we give stress, steadfastness and strength to your heart.
And the truth has come to you
in the stories in these tales of the prophets, and a less a remembrance. And an admonition
has come in these accounts of the prophets for the believers.
So this was the verse which Geneva law here is cited as proof, and in substantiation of his arguments that relate to your stories of the pious has a great purpose and wisdom and indeed,
consider this verse of the Quran.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the Eman
and the lead, and the best of all of the prophets of Allah without exception.
So he was superior.
And yet a law tells him
that our messenger of Allah, we do relate to
the stories of the prophets, to whom you are superior,
and of whom you are the lead,
and the chief. And yet in relating the stories of those to whom you are superior, and you are the leader,
we still grant you steadfastness, and the strength of the heart, through the stories, and the truth comes to you in these stories. There was solace and there was comfort and consolation for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and lessons for him also.
And in another verse of the Quran, after relating the stories of the prophets, and he was set out with some of the prophets and providing an account of some of the messengers, Allah Sage to the messenger some of the law it was something again for beholder
that oh prophet of Allah,
adopt the example and follow in the footsteps of their guidance. So if even the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is strengthened and inspired,
he is given steadfastness and the truth comes to him, and a lesson comes to him. And he is instructed to follow in the footsteps of those profits, and he was set on whose accounts Allah relates to him in the arm, then what of us? wouldn't we be inspired and strengthened and motivated? wouldn't we be encouraged
to gain a lesson and to follow in the footsteps of those who are far superior?
And so, as the moms and dads, they said, Indeed, there is a great wisdom and benefits and purpose in relating and listen to the stories of the pious, and for the Muslims of the oma after the messengers of Allah alayhi wa Salatu was salam, who is regarded as being the best of creation, the companions of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
after the prophets of Allah alayhi salatu was Salam.
If one just focused on the lives of the companions, years would pass
Before one would expire their accounts and lessons and morals to be gained from their lives.
So it's in this spirit of misunderstanding that we speak of a mobile companion or me to
be your loved one
See You the man should have been humbled to luckily relate so at ease in his Muslim it from Well, it's actually an author. It's a saying of Abdullah Masuda the alarm.
And he says very beautifully, it's a very long Hadith and I'll just quote the beginning of it. He says munken and stunden for your stem have been admired. For in the top one it can fit.
Whoever is going to follow anyone else's, anyone else's example. The left him follow the example in the sun, no one who has passed away.
Because those who are alive, there is no guarantee that they will not be subjected to trial and tribulation.
As long as anyone is still alive, they can change from good to bad and bad to good from better to worse and from worse to better.
So it's not guaranteed about the scholarship or the piety or the salvation of anyone who's still alive. So if someone I'm delighted to Massoud, there'll be a lot of essays, if someone is going to follow in the footsteps of another and adopt that example. Then, lesson, adopt the example and follow in the tradition and in the footsteps of those who have already passed away. And who was he referring to? He continues, he said, here, these are the messengers. These are the companions of the Messenger of Allah, some of the law, some of them, they were the best of this.
With the most profound knowledge, with the least affectations
and pomp, and pretentions.
With the most pious noble of hearts, Allah selected them and chose them for his message for the company of His Messenger, and in order to establish his religion.
So recognize their worth,
and follow in there and hold on fast to their traditions.
For indeed, they were upon the straight path.
for the oma
after the prophets of Allah, and even Siddhartha was Sudan, there was none other and no one better, whose example the oma can adopt, and in whose footsteps that makin farther than the noble companions of the messengers on the love it was one of them, of whom Allah has said in the Quran, Allah is pleased with them, and they are pleased with the law. And as the law says, we're serving woman, a woman. Oh, hi, Janine. What I'm sorry, Nina tiberian, Sun robiola.
who were the first
of the unsolved and of the Mahajan of the companions from Medina have the emigrants and of those who follow them in a good way.
So Allah even speaks of those who come later, but who follow in the footsteps of the companions of the Mahajan on and the answer. And in fact, in one verse of the Quran, Allah says, In surah, Baqarah, among Muslim imams.
In the world of enema, fish,
Allah says, addressing the companions of the Prophet similar law, it was around the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that if they others, if they believe just as you have believed, then indeed they have found guidance. But if they turn away, then indeed they are in different conflict. So Allah set the EMA, the faith and the practice of the noble companions as a standard by which to judge others. If others believe as the companions believed, then they have found guidance, but if they turn away from the path of the companions, then they are in different conflicts.
And in another verse, only you shall receive them in bargain matter, but you know, we
really mean no matter what level most Legion was, sila, Allah sees and whoever
opposes the message
guidance become clear for when you shop but also remember the motto obeying the law.
Whoever opposes the messenger after guidance has become clear for him, and he follows a path other than the path of the believers the macmini
Normally he mattala we will
thrust or turn him, we will turn him and thrust him in the direction which he himself has chosen.
If someone follows a path other than if someone opposes the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and follows a path other than the path of the macmini, Allah says, We will turn him and thrust him in the very direction which he has adopted, which is different, and in opposition to the direction and the method and the path of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Most importantly, when Allah sees meaning here, the believers he is referring to not the general body of believers that come after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Of course, in a way that is one consideration of the verse also, but the primary original meaning.
And the main consideration of the verse is
whoever opposes the messenger, and follows a path other than the believers ie the noble companions and the believers around the prophets of the love it so that way, that path, that human belief, we're all a standard by which Allah judged others.
So speaking of the terminal giraffe, or the alarm, I'm
his name was
a blu ray that was a Scania. But his name was actually
hon Abdullah. And he was from the orange tribe from muckety muck Obama was born in Makkah, approximately 13 years younger than the profits of the law. It was
one of the very first people to embrace Islam.
And in fact, he
according some narrations, he was one of the first people in that he numbered in the first 10 or 12, who actually embraced Islam along with in moderation a group of them, including us man or woman was
a way to harness
And have or be the who are the a lot. These five companions went and approached the prophets a lot, it was them in Makkah, he explained the tenets of Islam to them, and its teachings. They accepted, and they embrace Islam at his hands in the very early days of the prophets call in.
And ever since he embraced, he clung on to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the love, devotion and dedication,
in the fifth year have profited approximately when the persecution of Muslims in Mecca was on the rise, and the messengers of Allah and even some advisor believers to emigrate, those of them who could to Abyssinia and seek refuge there with the Christian King Joshua was just
one of those who emigrated was awarded later who Viola and they didn't stay there for long and he returned.
He then did his draft with the Prophet, some of the love it was something to Medina, and from the bat, and from the very beginning,
he participated in all of the battles along with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and not only that, but because of the way the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam viewed him and trusted him. And he actually looked at the daily, he appointed him as the leader of many military expeditions.
And in the Battle of
the terminal Gerardo de la was at the forefront
and one real test of his love for Allah and His Messenger, some of the love and even some of them, and his devotion and dedication to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was when he was actually faced in the Battle of birth by his own father. His father was one of was in the pagan camp of Mecca, and the son
was with the Muslims.
initially avoided the father,
but the father in order to provoke his son
kept on coming in front of him. Eventually, they fought, and a war of either
killed is on fire. There were other companions who also had to face their own family members. And a number of authors of heavies, including amantha Bharani Anima, I'm basically in a sauna and others relate that when these companions and specifically when these companions faced members of their family
in the Battle of but
specifically about way the genre of the Allahu, who unfortunately ended up fighting with his own father,
a law which revealed the verse of sort of Magellan,
in which Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah says, that digital only human on
Earth here, you are doing a man had the law, what a suit of welcome.
man, what can
we film Jonathan?
law is the law is the law La,
la de la,
la la, la.
La says, You will not find a people
who believe in Allah, and the final day,
befriending and loving those who have challenged Allah and His messenger.
Even though these challenges, maybe their own fathers, or their own sons, or their own brothers, or their own families, these are a people in whose hearts Allah has engraved eema faith and Allah has strengthened and supported them with the spirits from them to himself. And Allah will enter them into gardens beneath which river shall flow.
Allah is pleased with them, they are pleased with Allah. This is a party of Allah. And lo, indeed the party of Allah is the one which is victorious. Now do remember that these verses were revealed specifically about the noble companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, after the Battle of butter because of their unique situation. So the verse should be understood in that context, but this is a hadith related by Mantovani and a man be happy and other authors have had he could not be had him as well as others. And it shows that what would be the terminal genre
in his loyalty, dedication and devotion to the prophets and love it.
After the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left this world
of war away the genre of the alarm was just as highly regarded by the companions, as he was by the Messenger of Allah.
And how was he regarded by the Messenger of Allah.
in Hades later by Nam Timothy in his son in
a su la sala, it was some of them mentioned a number of companions. And on each of them, he said,
How great and beautiful a man is. And amongst them, he mentioned a war related genre. Nick merjan, of automated genre, how great and beautiful a man is in Java.
And in fact, one narration
related by a circuit, and others,
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam addressed his own companions. Imagine such a testimony on the part of the Messenger of Allah, and he was speaking to the companions. And he said to them, there is not one person amongst you,
except that if I wished
I could season for some fault in his character.
There is not one person amongst you, except that if I wish I could seize Him
and hold him to account for some faults in his character. Except of Huawei that have no job.
And the same had he has been rated by
double backflip and IV shaver in his Amazon life and by others also, but the wording is slightly different. Instead of addressing the companions, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, There is no one amongst my companions,
who if I wish
I would not be able to seize them for some flaw in their character. I everyone has a flaw in their character.
But I could hold them to account for with the exception of a warming.
But the Hadeeth is more subtle for those of you who knows a difference related by and hustle and bustle, he is not one of the companions
and most famously have automated Gerardo de la and he's one of the 10 promised gentlemen. He is from the National Mashallah and again you ma'am Timothy, relates very beautiful the heavy from the noble companions so either moseyed or the alarm, who said to his students, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said there are 10 people in general.
Isn't Gemma earthman isn't genma Addy isn't Jenna, but her isn't Jim. Xavi isn't
isn't Jana Abu Zubaydah who is in Jana Nabil waqqas is in Jana. Then sorry, the mosaic there'll be a lot one fell silent. So these were only nine
students said to him
Oh, our again this was a punia
there'll be a lot on our who is the 10th
so say the mosaic there'll be a lot line remain silent. So the students Preston, and said, Oh will our we beseech we we ask of you in the name of Allah through the name of Allah, we ask on you, that you tell us who is the 10th person of whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he is agenda. So save them as either the alarm said now that you asked me, pressing me In the name of Allah than armas say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and so he isn't just referring to himself. This was his humility, he would not mention the fact that he was included amongst the 10 promised gender by the sort of law. Some of them are highly some of them. How about
were remarkable in their self-effacement in their humility.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not only praised of or made the whole the law one, but he loved indeed. And
he must have had some truly profound and endearing qualities for which the Messenger of Allah loved him, this Imam should
have eaten as Muslims
from Abdullah in shebeen,
who says that,
I asked him what he shot of the love on her, there were others also. He said, I asked him, I mean, it shall be a lot
of the companions of the Prophet, some of the law it was some of them,
who was the most beloved to the messenger of the law of the companions.
So, shuttle the alarm has said, a while back, was the most beloved of the companions to the Messenger of Allah.
We then asked them who
in the shuttle the alumni have said then,
we then asked, then who,
what when in a shuttle the alarm has said,
after a walk around,
he was the third person in line, whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam loved the most of the companions of the companions after Welcome aboard
then he is one of those who was present asked them
in a shuttle the alarm has remained silent. She only mentioned three p abubaker. And abort later. Boo, obey.
Why wouldn't the Prophet Silla love it? Love him?
when he was devoted to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in such a way, that say you then have a severe for the alarm angle relates to this account that in the Battle of chocolate, which took place in the third year of hedger one year, after the Battle of But
as you know, in the Battle of the Muslims scored a victory initially.
However, because of the failure of the of a group of archers to open
The command of the prophets a lot might even send them not to leave their posts on a small hillock overlooking
a ravine, which was strategically very important to the Muslims. And if that remained if that remained expose, then the range would have been able to attack the Muslims from the rear.
So because of the failure of these archers to obey the command of the prophets in the law it for some of them
the Muslims suffered a great setback, they initially scored a great victory. The British were in retreat, and we're dispersing. However,
it was a large wisdom, the heart of the middle east of the alarm rang was waiting were the 204th cavalry at a distance. And he being the general that he was, he was specifically observing this particular
post of the archers and this hillock overlooking the ravine, and when the Muslims thought that the oration fled the battlefield, and now the battle was over. And the some not all, some of the companions on the hillock decided to abandon their positions, and come down into the battlefield main battlefield. Contrary to the instructions of the prophets and the love, it was, only a handful were left. And when Harley Davidson when he saw this, he then attack the Muslims from the rear with his cavalry, and word was sent to the retreating Quraysh to return and attack the Muslims from the front. So the Muslims were caught in a pincer movement, as a result of which they suffered a huge
setback, and many companions were martyred. Many were injured, somewhat so that even the prophets of Allah alikum someone was injured, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a strategic maneuver, he retreated to the safety of the mountain with just a handful of companions around. And in that confusion, he was also attacked, one of the range came and attacked him. Luckily, though, he was only able to strike the helmets. And but it was such force, that the helmets are the province of the law. It was one of them, the rings of the helmets, and the links embedded themselves in the noble cheeks of the prophets alarm, I think some
of the alarm or anger relates that I rushed to the profits of the law.
And as I was rushing towards him, I saw someone coming from the east, as though he was flying, meaning he was, he was rushing and hurrying to the messenger, some of the law it was such haste and speed, that it seemed as though he was flying.
It's just the metaphoric term. I saw someone coming from the east as though he was flying. And when I saw him coming, I pray to Allah, Oh Allah, make this a coming of obedience, I make him someone who is one of the companions of the messenger who comes to defend the messenger, and let's not be one of the enemy. And I rushed to the messenger similar love it. And we both met, and lo and behold, it was no other none other than me that
I rushed forward to try and remove the links from the cheeks of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but all of a sudden, regeneron beat me to it, and he said, leave me p, then, because the links were embedded, so with such force, he was hit with such force, that the links were embedded very deeply, they could not be removed, normally. So aboard me the genre of the law and clasp one of the links with his teeth, and with great vigor and force he
bit it and try to pull it from the cheek of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he was able to, but in the process, one of the link came out one of the teeth of a waterway that fell out. And because he pulled such force, he actually fell back and landed on his back. Then he rose, and
bits the other link, and again with great force, he pulled the link out with his teeth, he lost another tooth, a walkway that doesn't have the last two teeth from the front, but
it was something which he prided himself on for the rest of his days, and which the companions lived for. And his appearance was such that he was
very tall, slim, lean of face lean of body. He had a very sparse beard and
But the companions would say that we have never seen any gap in any one's teeth, as beautiful as a gap in the teeth of a waterway that
not only was it beautiful, but it reminded them of the profits of the lahardee.
In fact, when we did the majority of the a lot, as I said, it was tall, very slim, lean of body lean a face, sparse beard, and he would actually dye his hair and his beard with him.
And when he died, he had two plants.
This is something which has, which many people find surprising, but plants for men
And warming the alarm. He was
he was when he died here two planets. unless anyone thinks that how that's not very manly. He was a supreme commander of the Russian army in Syria.
He was a supreme commander.
But he had to collapse. So what made the General gerado the alarm when he that's how he lost his teeth. That was his love for a sort of laughs and alarm it will send him a sort of muscle alarm and he was loved him as Daly
Not only did he love him, not only did he regard him highly, but one of the most important things as he trusted him he trusted him in such a way that saved them answer nomadic it'll be a lot more as a relates in a hadith recorded by mom hardiness sorry and by others. That Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam publicly announced
in the liquidity meeting Amina
were in Amina a year
that indeed, every nation has a trustee.
And the trustee and our trustee oma is awarded me the who.
And the occasion when he said this was when in the ninth year of
some of the Christian leaders from Iran, which today is part of Arabia and
Venezuelans in the south of Arabia, then.
It was a famous Christian stronghold. So and virtually most of the tribes in that whole region were Christian tribes. So and it's
it's part of Southern Arabia.
So a delegation, a very large delegation of their leaders came to Medina in the Name field.
And they had discussions with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Michigan, they beat
them. And he invited them to Islam, but they did not accept. Eventually they came to an agreement. They accepted the authority of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, though not as religion and as part of that agreement, they were they came, they were to pay tribute, a tribute to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the Muslims.
So, these leaders of Madurai said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, please send with us, someone who is trustworthy.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
I will send with you someone who is trustworthy, happy happen mean truly trust where and in moderation of the same heavy record Bama as Muslim and others. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I will send with you, someone who is trustworthy, trustworthy, trustworthy.
Narrator says the companions in order to gain this honor
and win this title of being trustworthy. They all sat up
and lent forward on their knees, raising their hands in the hope that they will be selected. Even someone like Mr. barbital the alarm rang. He says in my entire life, I have never aspired to leadership, except on that one day, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam announced that he will send a trustworthy person with the delegation of majority is that on that day, I actually raised my head also hoping to be selected by the prophet some of the larger
I sell them. And that's one occasion when I did aspire to leadership and selection. But despite everyone's aspirations and hopes, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pointed to a waterway, that genre, and said, Oh, a waterway that rise. And he took his hand, and said to the people of the delegation of dudjom, he is a trustee of mine.
and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam trusted him to that degree, he had some truly amazing qualities. It's unfortunate that we don't know more about them. But it's the father of a last panel with Allah. But do remember.
It's not always those that we know the most about that are the best.
Or the loved one has very few narrations of the youth in contrast to the other components of what will be the genre or the law one also has very few generations of heavy, fewer than 15
compared to the other companions, and yet, they were of the best of the sum.
to such a degree that after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away
my Muslim right Allahu they will have eaten his sight. Again from on winning shot of the Allah.
That she was asked that if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have named a successor,
who would he have named specifically?
So what meaning shuttle the Allah said.
Then she said, then she said, what will be the dimension?
So it's very similar to the one I quoted earlier. That's a hadith of Eman humbling as Muslim, in which I'm delighted and shebeen and yazeed. And others asked me in a shot of the alarm about who was the most beloved to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from amongst his companions. And she replied, these three in the same order of orbit, and abort leave the terminal.
And this seems, unrecorded by my ramblings Muslim also, and by others, is a very similar study from Chateau de la Juana, but lots about who was the most beloved. But the question was, if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, would have specifically appointed someone and named someone as his successor, who would have named so Abubakar, then, then abort later.
And indeed, immediately after the passing away of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the sleep of Lusaka, when the Muslims gathered,
Abubakar de la stood up. And even though he was appointed by the Muslims as a Khalifa and the successor to the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam.
Who did he recommend?
He rose and addressing the congregation, he said to them, are people I am contented and pleased with one of two people to be your leader.
And the two are above and above me that
even though the alarm was 10 years younger than
it was 10 years younger than abubaker, San Diego de la Juan. And yet he said, I choose one of the iron content and pleased with one of these two men to serve as your leader. All Muslims, either Bob or a water meter who
will be a lover and he himself on that occasion, he set a waterway the amount of number relates and as Muslim. Another beautiful Hadith says that on that occasion of
the Allahu and set of otter VEDA, or either extend your hand, so that I may pledge my allegiance to you. For indeed I have heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying that you are the mean and the trustee of this.
So a waterway that will be your lover, and his reply was, I will never allow myself to be placed before someone
whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam instructed to lead us in prayer in his presence, and who continued to lead us in prayer until the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away meaning of all Bukhara
So eventually, when the law was appointed, he appointed a way that doesn't genre being a mean and the trustee them as the treasurer.
a book is a vehicle, the law
And passed away and above or the alarm became a believer.
He was named, but it will because of the alarm, then say that the alarm continued with his friendship and his trust of abort later genre, in fact, say that your loved one loved him not only loved him, but respected him. And he considered him a brother and a friend.
He praised him. Imagine someone of the caliber of all of those above are the
same following once he was seated with with a group of people. And he said to them, wish these were his companions. These were the normal people of his gathering, his friends, his closest advisors, and he said to them wish.
So they all wish someone wished for one thing or another wish was something else, after they have finished expressing expressing their wishes as to what they would really want. So then I might have the alarm and said, Do you know what I wish for? I wish for a house full of people like that, who? That's what I wish for.
He he admired him and trusted him to such a degree that he wished for a house full of people like me that didn't have a job.
he trusted him for Indeed, he had heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam say he is a trustee of the summer.
He appointed him
as the commander of the forces in sharm in Syria. And he actually relegated
Holly to be leader of the Luftwaffe from command overall command and he made so you're gonna walk away that didn't algebra, the Supreme Commander of all the Muslim forces in sharm modern day Syria, Jordan, the Levant, and even southern Turkey. That whole region, an award of the law was then responsible for conquering the whole region, all the way to the Euphrates River in the east, and all the way to
Antioch, and the borders of Asia Minor in the north.
Unfortunately, in the 18th year of hedger,
a plague struck the Muslims in that region was a severe play many many Muslims died.
When Susan Amato the alarm,
heard of this plague,
one of the first things he did was he tried to summon a Warby that genre from
Sham wear, he was based.
And in fact, in one narration, it says, Well, he tried to summon a way that the majority sent him a letter. And in the letter, he said to him,
a need has arisen here, and I cannot remain independent of you, I'm in need, I am in need of you. So make haste and return to me immediately. Unfortunately, when aboard made the terminal Java received that letter, he had already contracted the illness and he was already suffering from the player.
He wrote back.
And when he received the letter, he said to his companions, he said, I know what he wants of me. I know what his need is.
What was the need of saving the alarm, say the owner of the law firm wanted to ensure
that if he could save anyone, it would be a way that the
way the how the law said I know what I mean, once I've me and what's his need is his need is and his desire is that he wishes to save someone who cannot be saved.
So save me that hold the alarm and wrote back, saying to a minimum, what many memorable hubbub politely declining and saying, I am but to one of the Muslim
avoid for myself What is before them that I wish to die with my fellow Muslims
in suffering the plague
when see them, you know, when I mean what meaning whatever bar but all the love and receive the letter,
he read it silently, and he wept. He wept.
Normally a lot of a man not known to weep in that man, he wept. those around him said to him, has a waterway that passed away as he died, see that a lot of the a lot of armor said No, he hasn't died.
But to me it is as though he has already done and he wept. That's how much he loved
and how much you trusted him. And when Satan or the alarm and first heard of the plague, he feared that he would be struck because he was actually traveling at the time, torture. And he feared that maybe he would be struck by the plague. And he didn't know of the position of say, a waterbender. So he said to those around him.
He said, If
and he meant that if he is struck by the plague, and if all the way that he's still alive, then I will appoint a waterbed
halifa of the Muslims,
and he said, I won't consult anyone. I will not consult anyone. And I will appoint a wall either. As a leader of the Muslims, and Imam, Abdullah, he has had eaten as Muslim, he says, that say that a lot of the alarm said, if the waterway there is still alive,
and he meant that I'm about to leave, then I will appoint the board, as the leader of the Muslims, and on Yom Yom when Allah will ask me why did you appoint a wardrobe either? I will say in reply to Allah, Oh Allah, I heard your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say that every prophet has a trustee. And my trustee is a world leader who?
And another agent who said, I will appoint him and I won't consult anyone. And if I'm asked, my reply will be that I have appointed someone who is trusted by law and trusted by His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam imagined his possession.
And thinking that the law
would have appointed them. And in the same duration, the long duration, they actually two people that he mentioned, he says, If
aboard me that he's alive, I will appoint him. And then he related this heavy thought, if and I will say to Allah,
that I've haunted him because I heard your messenger say, every prophet, the wording is different. He says, every prophet has a trustee and my trustee is a waiver. Then he said, If what will be there is no longer alive, and more other than the jibon is alive than I will appoint.
And if I'm asked, why did you appoint more other than a job, I will say, I appointed rather than the job of the law one, for indeed I heard the messenger some of the love it was some of them say on the Day of Judgment of what the gibble will be resurrected in such a way that he will be placed a month in front of an assembly of Allah, and he will be so distant from them, that he will be an arrows throw away, meaning.
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said of the law and the
bill holiday would have been the most learned of halal and haram, of the lawful and the unlawful of the companions is more than a jumble of the law and he was a man of the author and scholar of the arm, a scholar of fit of halal and haram, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent him as a body and as a judge and a teacher and a guide for the people of Yemen.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lived him also.
We know very little of the caliber of these companions, but see the number of the loved one who said if a war leader is not alive, I will appoint more as he was an alum. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, he will be resurrected on the day of judgment in such a way that he will be placed before an assembly of Allah but not close to them for the difference and the gap between him and the assembly of the Allah ma IE of the oma will be a whole arrows throw. That will be the distance.
Martin agenda under the law.
He recognized a bottle of water be that recognized rather than a
recognized award of either and rather than a Jebin Abubakar Cydia, chromium law one recognized
award for the Aloha of these companions understood each other they knew each other. It takes an artist to recognize art. It takes a genius to recognize talent
It takes a while he have a lot to recognize, or will he have a lot, it takes a scholar to recognize a scholar.
If we fail to see
the good and the great, the goodness and the greatness in others who are regarded as being good and great, then it's our failure.
These hub are the alarm, they recognize each other. And even in their own time, they may not have been recognized as being such, in fact, that speaking of one of them the jumble of the alarm during the siege of Damascus, which was being led by a board of either terminal Java, during the siege of Damascus, in under his command, someone was critical of the terminal Java, maybe he was questioning his strategy.
And the failure of the Muslims to immediately
call conquer Damascus without the siege.
And he made this criticism in front of me rather than the job or the alarm. And his suggestion was he said, If Carly didn't believe was the command, then the Muslims would not be in this position. More than a job under the law. And this is what I said, it takes a person of that caliber to recognize someone of that caliber rather than a job over the alarm or ampere said to him, you could size a wardrobe either.
I swear by Allah, of all the people who remain on earth, He is the best.
They were similar.
They were similar.
Once he then the alarm.
like I said, unrelated story in a moment, but it takes great people to recognize greatness. And the companions saw this in each other, rather than a job under the law and was a beloved was a beloved friend of
another one of their close friends was none other than Abdullah who was school that will be your loved one. He would say, I love him in his hobby, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would say my best friend,
Allahu Akbar. Imagine this friendship. And the lightning was rude being who he was. I'm delighted when this room sees the alarm. My best friends amongst the companions of the Messenger of Allah are of luboc Emma, and aboard obey the terminal genre.
The three who are the most beloved, the three who are the who are the most deserving of love and leadership. These three were the best friends of amberlite. And
they recognized each other, even though others may have failed to recognize
what was it we know just we know just some of the qualities of what we that
even though he was made a lead,
and this is one of the greatest teachings of Islam, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a very authentic travelator before, do not ask for leadership.
If you ask for leadership and you're given leadership
by aspiring to it and seeking it, then you will be abandoned to it or you will be left to your own devices with the burden of leadership with all its responsibility in bed. But if you are given leadership, without seeking it, or aspiring to it, then you will be assisted in it meaning Allah will assist you.
And that was the truth. That was one thing about a way that only Allah and shuttle the
shuttle the Allah says, If the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have made named halifa after him, he would have been abubaker Omar all the way and meaning in succession.
See them I'm one of the Allahu anhu said extend your hand or VEDA so the pledge my allegiance to you and appoint you as a leader of the Muslims. So you can walk out of the alarm said to the congregation of Muslims. I am content and fees with one of these two as your leader either above or later. And during his lifetime during the lifetime of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he would appoint he would appoint a way to hold the alarm as the commander of military expeditions, and of large group large expeditions summit so that on one occasion
but the lesson is aboard obey the hero the alarm and never sought leadership for himself. He never aspired to it. In fact, even when he was given it, he would relinquish
glass of the law was in the north near sham. During the time of the prophets of the law. It was simple.
He was in a very difficult position he sends were to the messenger of a lots of the law it will send them for reinforcements. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam raised
a small arm.
And in that army was aboubaker mo de la Mancha. And despite the presence of Abu Bakr and Omar, who to the point as leader, and commander of that expedition aboard leader who,
despite the presence of a lot of the love in the army, the army went as reinforcements for America as sort of the alarm when they arrived and Ragnar saw the alarms said to the arriving reinforce reinforcements, he said to them, I am your immediate and lead me they had to decide these are reinforcements he said you have only been sent as reinforcements. So I am your amine.
But the noble Mahajan room in the reinforcing expedition said to him, You are a mirror of those who are with you. Our immediate is still a warm, eternal genre. They refuse to recognize anyone else as a medium in the presence of what made them know Java, la Aveda heart of the law, and with his humility, he said to us and he announced to the rest that I relinquish my leadership and I follow honorable house.
He was extremely humble
when the law
made him the Supreme Commander of all the Muslim forces in China, and he relegated Holodomor will either have the alarm on
what was the response of highly dependent.
These were the noble companions. Holly didn't will either the law one was the better
now, he stood up and addressing his army and his most loyal and devoted veterans. He said to them,
a waterway that has been appointed commander over all of us and indeed we have heard the Messenger of Allah say, every Ouma has a trustee and an amine and that amine and trustee of this oma has a waterway the terminal chakra
so what the way the how the Allahu anhu to
harden Well, he was gracious in his relegation.
And he was gracious in his and obedient in becoming
one of the subjects of watery that genre, and what was the general general response to harden speech, he stood up also. And he said, Oh, people, even though he was now commander, he said, Oh, people, and indeed I've heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, the hardest need is a sword of the swords of Allah will never forget that asherah and how great a young men of the claim is highly developed.
The Companions loved and respected each other in such a way, in fact, the first time hardly to believe that or the alarm was dispatched as a reinforcement for amateur for
the siege of Damascus award at the height of the alarm, I'm actually setting him when he arrived. He said, Oh, harlot, you have come to strengthen me and to reinforce me here, leaders in prayer, how to do when the leader of the alarm rang and said, I can never stand before someone of whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that every man has a trustee and the trustee of this man is a way that
you refuse to stand in front of them in prayer.
That was their love and respect for each other. That humility, lets us learn from the minute.
In fact about me, that'll be a lot. I'm so humble. And his gaze was on the earth to such a degree that he would say, he actually made an announcement. And he said, Oh people, I am of the orange mean, he was a nobleman of the branch. I am of the branch.
But if I see anyone amongst you,
black or red, red, meaning brown, black or brown amongst you,
who excels me and exceeds me in taqwa. Then I will follow in his footsteps.
And he would say, I wish I was around
whose owners would then slaughter the ram eat the meat and
Drink the stock.
Why would they make comments such as these, the reasonable worker of the alarm would say you would see a bird and say, I wish I was a bird roaming and flying freely without a care in the world. I wish I was a blade of grass. Why would this How about the law and make such comments? The reason they will do so is that they feared accountability and standing before law on the day of reckoning.
They would rather be a blade of grass, a bird flying around carelessly, or even around that will be slaughtered, whose needs would be consumed and who stock would be drunk and over and done with, for they feared accountability and standing before a long day of judgment
and abort obey the heart of the law when he was appointed Supreme Commander of the forces of Sham that conquered that whole fertile and rich region.
That was the land of Byzantine Rome, with all its glory, its opulence, his riches, its power, its glitz and glamour.
The Muslims occupied the palaces
in Basra, in Jerusalem,
in Damascus, in Antioch, all the forts in that whole region,
all the way up to Asia Minor, and Anatolia.
And yet, what what could one machine
at the head
and at the realm,
and in command of all of this with overall control was what
he would have enjoyed the riches, the power, the opulence, he would have settled into a comfortable life. He would have like if, if these companions
had any remnants of the days of before, when the Arabs and the betterment of Arabia would raid, and they would claim as much as they could for themselves, if there was any remnants of that. Then aboard obey the law, the law and being the overall commander and being in charge of all of this, with all these riches and these, this power, this influence
at his disposal at his feet, he would have claimed a share for himself. And yet, his assets, his unworldliness, his gaze on the camera. All of these were such they had no interest in the dunya whatsoever, save them a lot of the Allahu unsent
a number of gold sovereigns and a few 1000 dirhams to save them at the Align its calculation in today's currency would be about 10,000 pounds. He sent that money, silver coins and gold sovereigns to aboard beta. And he actually said to the messenger, see what VEDA does with this money. When I will obey the law and receive the money in Sha he immediately distributed amongst Muslims.
Then he sent the same amounts of money tomorrow than the job.
What did rather than a jumbled, this is what I said earlier, they were all close to each other they knew and recognize each other. My other job under the law again distributed all the money amongst Muslims, his wife said we were in great need dire need. So, we kept a bit just for our bare necessities.
When say that, the alarm was told that the money was given to a water either the money was given tomorrow rather than the gibble and this is how they dispose of the money. See that? The alarm said Alhamdulillah All Praise be to that Allah Who has created amongst Muslims such people who behave in such a way
they gave them money away, no interest whatsoever. And his assets ism was such a love and are and
save them or the loved one when he went to inspect the forces and charm
when he arrived there
he said Where is my a he my brother aboard
a waterway that came the Supreme Command. He came on a camel
pump pumpers resplendent now. He came on a camel and the reins of the camel were made from roar up
the bridle and the rains bridle and the rains were roar up.
See the number of your lover and Mama Buddha law he relates in the summer. Let's say that a lot of the alarm was set in front of everybody. On one occasion when they both met see the model the alarm
He maps even a beta. He shook his hands and say, you know, amagno hubub took the hands of the waterway.
model the alarm kissed the hands of a water vapor. Then he took him to one side people were still watching, but they couldn't hear what they were saying. The waterway, Bob's to to one side, and they both began weeping.
So Mr. Magoo de la he relates to the sun and that when the alarm came to inspect the Muslim Garrison's in Sham
he sets out a way that in front of everybody, either take me to your house, take me home,
I will be there'll be a librarian who says, Oh, I'm here on what meaning you only wish to weep over me.
Margarita inla and to us that I named weddings beautiful Amir, meaning you only wish to squeeze your eyes tears of blast that I make. You only wish to squeeze your eyes tears overly. So even though the alarm persisted, take me home.
Why did say that? The alarm rang go. Not because he wanted to inspect how the supreme commander was living. Maybe he is abusing the wealth. Maybe he is abusing the resources. Maybe he is falsely claiming, and misappropriating the wealth of the Muslims. Now say that I'm not of the law. I'm trusted him more than that. When he arrived he said wait, there's my brother aboral data about me they take me to your house. You only wish to weep over me or meet him what meaning he persisted Take me to your house when they arrived. See, then I wouldn't see them either enter the house, see that I might have the alarm, looked around the house. And he began we he looked around the house and he
said, we'll be there. I can only see a bedding,
and a leather bag of water?
is there any food in your house of water made the whole the alarm went to a container and pulled out some art the wording of the head even though someone is gonna say your art or say your art means small broken pieces. And normally what this used to be used for is dry provisions. You know how we have bowls or containers of nuts, pistachios, almonds, walnuts, broken nuts.
These things small broken savories. This is what you call mux or art or per se art in Arabic. So the wording of the Hadith is he went to a container. And he pulled out some cars,
broken, crushed pieces
of nuts, etc. And he presented them to Bob. And who was this the Supreme Commander of the Muslim forces in charge of Byzantine rock. See the format of the alarm began weeping
a waterway that said to him Oh, meat and what we mean? Didn't I tell you that you only wish to weep over me? Then he said ultimatum that mean? What you see before you this is sufficient to carry me to the grave.
This is sufficient to carry me to the grave. Say that? I'm going to say that oh wait once weeping. Bob said to him obey the the dunya. The world has touched every one of us except you.
Wait, this was long before the plague when the alarm was struck by the plague.
What had happened is that he was struck by the plague around
his design. He did not wish for anything in the world.
Even though he fought so many battles, he never he was never martyred.
He was in every battle with the messenger of love. He was never martyred and even then afterwards, he was never martyred. But was he a coward in any way far from it? What are the because they were very good friends rather than the dribbling the ball away while the majority of the Alarcon was wounded, so he sent someone to abort Vader and set in Go and tell either we have been pierced with spears, and we are wounded. How are you?
So, at the heart of the alarm, he showed his hand to the messenger
and there was a spear in the in the hand.
So the messenger
When he saw them,
he didn't think much of it. And the others also around him said, This is nothing.
So it won't be the head of the alarm, I'm pointing to the wound and his palms said to him, I will pray that Allah blesses it and increases it.
I will pray that Allah blesses this wound and increases it. If I pray for its increase, and its blessing, then inshallah it will increase. And when Muslims around him in the camp, were contracting the illness and be it were afflicted by the plague, see them walk away, that was still safe. He actually raised his hands and prayed to Allah, that Allah grant me and my family, our share of the plague also.
In fact, my apologies, I mixed up the wording.
When he saw the room, the person said to him, that this has nothing, very small wound. So of that wound, he said, it may be small, but I would not enjoy all except a whole herd of red camels in view of this room.
And when he prayed to Allah, Allah grants me to be the one my family, our share of the plague, he will save No sooner had he made that though Adam, within a short time, a boil broke out on his thumb. So then he would look at the boil. And he would say to the boil other sets, and that's nothing. And he would say, I pray that Allah blesses the spoil. And that increases. And indeed, it did increase. That's when he received the letter of the law and, and he said, that I wish to die with the Muslims. And I don't, I cannot, I know what I mean and what meaning once he wants to save someone who cannot be saved, and he declined to go to Medina and save himself, lock them in that
garrison, there were 36,000, Muslims were saved another way to have your loved one. And in that plague, 30,000 perished 30,000 died, only 6000 survived. One of them was a waterway that held the law one. And before he died, he appointed rather macgibbon as the overall commander, and his successor. And in that same year, within a few months, more than a jumble of the alarm, and also passed away in the plague. I ended up with just one
why saying I've saved in a way that hold the alarm,
in the hope that we can learn from his example. We can learn and adopt his can learn from and adopters, character, of humility, of assets, and worldliness
of the love of Allah and His messenger. So a lot
of his piety. He was once walking through the Muslim camp.
obviously, when in the camp at the time,
there would be dirt on the floor, etc. in the camp. She was walking through the camp, and he said to his companions, that are many
who tried to whiten their clothes, yet they dirty and soil their faith and religion.
And there are many who tried to honor their soul. But in fact, they are humiliating and degrading and disgracing their soul. All Muslims hastin
and beat hastin towards and beat your old, sinful misdeeds with Nene fresh good deeds. These were his words, I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala enable us to understand, may Allah make us amongst those who learn from the life and the character and the personality in the example of these noble companions that are the Allahu Allah give us a share of their love for Allah, His Messenger, some of them love it, some of them and a share of their nobility, their piety, their humility, their learning, their asks that and we're
and their character was a lot more similar manner. I think he would have sued in the Vietnam War early he was signage main panic a lot more behind
us the federal government will be late.
