smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala and he was off the edge mine. Aloha Medina ha ha Kawasaki bar. While bottle a bottle of Varanasi nabba, alumna and founder and founder of Mr. Lipton, I was

00:00:23--> 00:00:24

originally

00:00:25--> 00:00:47

a criminal reform. One amillennial team. Recently Emily lock daughter, Melissa Neff, Coco Cola, my bad after the price to Allah, Almighty, and glory and peace be upon His Beloved Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I'll testify that there's no god except Allah. And I testify that Mohammed is the Prophet, the Messenger of Allah.

00:00:48--> 00:01:20

Tonight inshallah, we'll speak about another great companion companion, that his story is a great guide. An example for a lot of people, especially those ones who seek the truth. This companion, he's not from the Arabs know that he had met the Arabs and he's not from Medina, or Mecca. Know that he met the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or the companions of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam.

00:01:21--> 00:01:22

Well, this companion

00:01:24--> 00:01:39

is one of the great companions of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the son of Allahu Allahu wa sallam considered him from his family. It's salmaan salmaan alpha c, and the word feriss.

00:01:40--> 00:01:50

Ferriss is the name of the country of Iran, Persia. Ferris is Persia.

00:01:51--> 00:02:09

After Iraq, or the saw towards the east, they used to call it firdous. and sell metal of the alarm dial I know comes from the area and sell metal the alota alarm comes from an area where his father used to be one of the most respected people in that town.

00:02:10--> 00:02:16

And the Persians back then they used to be measures and measures others ones who worship fire.

00:02:17--> 00:02:30

They believe that fire destroys anything, we're just true. put anything in fire, the fire will destroy it depends on whether it takes short or long at the end of day the fire will destroy it. So there

00:02:31--> 00:02:53

theory because the fire destroy, it destroys everything. And God is the strongest Sapphire is the strongest. And because fire is the strongest fire is the Lord of this world. And they used to have places of worship, where they have fire 24 hours, fire attend on 24 hours. So they used to be called them a juice

00:02:54--> 00:03:00

and some men from the nature of the environment that he lives in. He grew up in a Medusa family.

00:03:01--> 00:03:12

He grew up in a Medusa family. And his father was one of the strict measures back then. Especially he's one of the leaders of the town, he had a lot of respect among that town.

00:03:14--> 00:03:42

And one day, Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to open the heart of this young man's sell man to the truth. And it started off with one day he went past a church with a people who were the people, the followers of rissalah A Salaam and that's before the prophecy. The follow up was very Salah is salam, a worshipping Allah azza wa jal with a bit of distortion in it.

00:03:43--> 00:04:31

So salmela de la Thailand, who was a Medusa was hips, the fire. So he saw those people, those worshipers worshipping along worshiping God in a different way that he liked and he was amazed with, say, he went back to his father's head or dead, or went past this place of worship, with his people worshiping God in a different way that we worship Him and unlock their way of worship. So his father said, Oh, Sal, man, your religion is better than their religion. Your religion is on the truth of their religion is false. But Sandman did not accept that. And Selma will constantly visit the place of worship, to see the worship of Allah and the why of worshiping Allah until he announced that he

00:04:31--> 00:04:59

is a he's a Muslim, he is a Christian, from the followers of the flip of that church. When his father found out he locked him up, changes hands and legs and locked him up and did not allow him to leave the house and sell man wanted to know the truth say asked, Where is the main source of this religion? So they told him in Syria in Sham and he said this there were other scholars are from he said, they told him yes

00:05:00--> 00:05:13

So he managed one day to break through the chains he was in, and to go with a caravan that was heading towards Syria. And he left his family and his town, and his country heading towards Syria to know more about this new religion.

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

When Taliban are off to Syria,

00:05:18--> 00:05:55

he met with one of the priests of a church there. salmaan describes him, that priest was a very bad priest. He's to ask people for donations. And he's to keep those donations for himself. And Sandman disliked everything about that priest. Until the priest passed away and other priests came and took over the position of the previous praise. And Sandman describes that priest who was a very, very good priest, who was sincere and honest. And Selman learnt a lot from that priest. And he served that preach so much, that he gave a lot of his knowledge.

00:05:56--> 00:06:03

And that priests gave him shapes and cows, as present gifts in return of his serves.

00:06:04--> 00:06:06

And then the priest

00:06:07--> 00:06:45

was on his deathbed segment tells him or priest, you're on your deathbed. And I came all the way from Persia, to seek for the truth. And now you're dying? Who do you guide me to? Who do you advise me to get to? So I said, the only good priest I could think of that exists at this time and error is a priest in Mosul, north of Iraq, he is a good priest, are recommended to get to him and learn from him. So after the death of the priests elmen went all the way from Syria to Mosul, Iraq, to sit and learn more from the priest.

00:06:47--> 00:07:08

And he said, Man learns a lot from the priest. And he loved the priests, some of the the priests loved him, and returned so much. And he stayed with him is to sometimes slip in the same room as him. He's to go with him come with him and learn so much from him until that priest was getting old, and it was on his deathbed.

00:07:10--> 00:07:44

So when he was dying, 1000 men told him or priest, you're gonna die. And I'm seeking the truth. I want to know is there anyone else that you could recommend me that could can learn from? So I said, There is one last piece I think is the last good praise that exists at this time in our in our Maria in Syria, get to him and learn from him. And then yes, Sal man went after the death of the priest, and learned from that priest that the previous priests got at him too. And so Pamela, again, Allah wanted that priests also today, because the all out age,

00:07:45--> 00:08:05

and sell man will seek advice from the priests and tells him Who do you got me to after your death. So that priest told him also man, I cannot think of any good priest, or religious man out there. That's honest and truthful, at this tournament error. But

00:08:07--> 00:08:27

I am sure It's time now for a prophet to come out. He comes out from among a land surrounded with palm trees. And this prophet says the truth, and he is an honest and described with honesty, and he has three sons. He does not accept donations.

00:08:28--> 00:08:39

And he only accepts an eight from prisons, and he has a birthmark between his shoulders, a stamp of the prophecy,

00:08:40--> 00:09:32

and that priests passed away. Now, Selman is left in a state of confusion. Who should he go to and sake, the truth from and it's exactly what Allah subhanho wa Taala said, when levina, Josefina, Lana, Deanna home su bolena those who strive and sacrifice in our path, we will guide them to what we want. Sal man comes all the way from Persia does not know anyone that knows Mohammed or related to Mohammed or cousin, or close to Muhammad, Allah wanted to guard this urgent, lost confused man to the truth. So one day sell man sees a caravan going towards the Arabian Peninsula since he heard number one, Sony comes out of a city and a town surrounded the palm trees. Where is a lot of palm

00:09:32--> 00:09:59

trees. There's a lot of palm trees in the Arabian Peninsula. So salmaan so I caravan going towards the Arabian Peninsula. And he agreed with the people of the caravan that they'll carry him with them on the caravan and exchange that he gives him his talk. He gives them his caros from the council shapes that the priests before gave him. So they took that in return that they take him to the Arabian Peninsula.

00:10:00--> 00:10:19

The way they portrayed him and they treated him as a slave and sold him to another person. This person bought sell man as a slave when he's a free man. And Subhana Allah Allah wanted that this man stillson meant a Jew from benue Cordoba that lives in Medina.

00:10:22--> 00:10:54

And Selman, now from a free man. He's now treated as a slave. And it was bought by a Jewish man from bunny Pura Vida that lives in Medina and now he is treated as a slave. And the Jewish master of sell man was very harsh on sell man. And he's the alpha works a man and sell man is in Medina working on the palm trees of the farm of the Jewish master of his eye one day sell man

00:10:56--> 00:11:30

was in a racist story. There was collecting the dates, climbing the palm tree on the top collecting the dates, where his master sitting down relaxed and comfortable under the shade of the palm leaves. his masters friend comes to his monster and says, Have you heard about this man that comes from Mecca in our city? His name is Mohammed he claims to be a prophet says Allah says when I heard that I ran down, I came down and asked him where is he sama monster slipmat Tomica up

00:11:32--> 00:11:42

and then said manhood, someone says that he's a prophet. And then he recalls the advice of his priest of his teacher.

00:11:43--> 00:12:33

It's time for a prophet surrounded comes from a place surrounded by palm trees. So you guys want us around? Who is that man that claims that says he's a prophet. They tell him his name is Muhammad. What is not based past, his past all about honesty and truthfulness. His own past is all about respect and modesty. his past is all about good and good. Science. Where is he say? He's got his companions, and he sits around his companions in his mosque. So Solomon goes and visits the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and takes with him a plate of dates. And he sees the profile a Salatu was Salam surrounded with his beloved companions. Say comes to the Prophet says or Mohammed

00:12:34--> 00:12:37

are now your people I need the support I need.

00:12:38--> 00:12:51

So he is a plate of dates are donated to you and your people. So the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thanked him in return, and asked the companions to eat from it, and that he didn't touch it. So I said, that's one.

00:12:53--> 00:12:54

He does not eat from donations.

00:12:56--> 00:12:57

The next day, Sal man

00:12:58--> 00:13:38

will come to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with another play of date. And it says, All Muhammad understood that you didn't eat from the donations. This is a present from me to you. So the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thanked him in return, and gathered the companions and asked him to eat from it and he ate from it. So I said, but a lot. That's a second one. Now the third one, what's the third one? It's a birthmark, a distinguished birthmark between the shoulders of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam How am I gonna get to that? And the profile is Salatu was Salam is covered. So sell men who sit nearby the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa

00:13:38--> 00:14:15

sallam stretching his hitron to see with a birthmark, trying to find that with that birthmark. So sallallahu alayhi wa sallam understood, uncovered this back and told them is that what you're looking for Solomon, so he came on the hands of the prophet SAW Selim, kissing the hands of the profile is Salatu was Salam. And saying eyeshadow Allah La la la, or Anakin, Mohammed de la sala Pamela, if someone seeks and ask for the truth sincerely, to find out the truth of Allah who got into it, remember this, my brothers and sisters, anyone on the surface of this earth

00:14:16--> 00:14:17

that seeks for the truth

00:14:18--> 00:14:53

and calls for the truth and wants the truth Allah will guide them to the truth. Allah does not misguide anyone that wants to Goddess, no matter what their background is, and no matter what the environment is, and no matter what the understanding is, anyone that wants to Goddess Allah does not miss God anyone that wants to Goddess Sandman all the way from Persia. Allah wanted him to go through all those procedures and ways until it came to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Southern man the seeker of Truth.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

And then the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sympathized with Solomon.

00:15:01--> 00:15:21

And Sandman was a slave. So the profile is salatu wa sallam collected from the company's money, and gave sell man money to free himself from his master. And indeed, some men freed himself from his master with the support of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the companions

00:15:23--> 00:15:40

and Nelson man. Selman starts a new life, a life of Islam, with the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, until a man tries to seek as much as knowledge and education from the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam

00:15:41--> 00:16:33

occupied his time to what pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala and pleases the Prophet of Allah, and benefits a religion of Islam and sell man is that genius that came out or came up with the idea of the ditch. When the non believers or mechagon, the 10,000 non believers to attack the believers in Medina. Selman came up with the idea of digging the ditch to make a barrier between them. And the non believers that come in to attack them. The Medina was surrounded a part of the mountains, a part of it with the trees of the palm trees, and the part that empty opened to the desert. So Solomon said, back in Persia, we dig up a ditch. That makes it a barrier between us and the enemy, so they

00:16:33--> 00:17:16

can come to us and if they do want to get in the ditch, it's an opportunity for us to kill them. So the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took by the idea of Sandman and all of the companions in a time of drought and hate to dig up a ditch all the way from the mountains, to the trees to make as a barrier between them and the non believers. And then Allah subhana wa Taala showed great miracles on the hands of the profile a Salatu was Salam. One of them is that companions were digging up the ditch on a massive rock that the companions with x's and shovels couldn't break that rock. So sell man came to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sanctum or problem

00:17:16--> 00:17:38

Allah is there's rocks, the obstacle for us to continue digging up the ditch. Why don't we get another way? So the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the man that Allah gave him the strength of 10 men took the axe from the companions, and he hit the rock, that massive rock will all strengthen a great sparks sparks and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says Allah,

00:17:39--> 00:18:12

Allah had shown me that the opening of a puja will be on the hands on my nation, I could see the kingdom of Persia being in the hands of the Muslims. And then the problem Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam at the time, and a great sparx comes out of the rock and he says Allahu Akbar, Allah had shown me the kingdom of rambin under the Muslims, and then the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hit to the third time and a great spark comes out of the rock and he says Allahu Akbar, Allah has given me the kingdom of the east and the west in the hands of my nation.

00:18:14--> 00:18:20

And the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the strength and power demolishes that rock.

00:18:21--> 00:18:22

Another great

00:18:24--> 00:18:25

incident took place

00:18:26--> 00:18:34

is the companions about the alota Allah and home while the digging the ditch the staff and was time of starvation and drought.

00:18:35--> 00:18:58

So they can complain to the profilers salatu wa sallam, from hunger. So that all uncovered their stomachs and Iran had a rock tied on the stomach. So it gives them the right to keep walking and working. So the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam uncovered the stomach and he had two rocks, solo Allah Nabina Muhammad

00:19:00--> 00:19:09

a while the companions were working in that hard day, in the hot season, one of the companions feel sorry for the profile is Salatu was Salam.

00:19:10--> 00:19:52

So he gets back to his wife until then we have a small goat. So she said yes. So he said, I'll slaughter the small gate with a bit of a bit of barley. And with that we have cook MOSFET for the prophet and one or two companions with him to come along there else. So she does so.

During his hard work Allah is salat, wa salam, and whispies in the era of the profile a salado centrism a problem of Allah. I'm inviting you, and one or two companions with you to come to my house. So the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got up in front of all the companions, and he said, Our brother Phil,

00:19:52--> 00:19:56

and then falana invited us all over his house.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

So that companion was put in the

00:20:00--> 00:20:18

embarrassing situation, but he doesn't know the blessings that Allah azza wa jal wanted to bring out of it. So this companions face and Allahu Allah, all our faces and all different colors. So the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him, don't worry, just tell your wife

00:20:19--> 00:20:43

just tell you what not to uncover the pot and let escape without looking into it. And then the profile is about awesome.
