Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Ellen Ellen Omar haben become Welcome to Sahaba profiles. Today we discuss the story of a great Sahabi known by the name of a Buddha, the lavon. His real name was or may have been Malik al Hassan rajim. He had not accepted Islam in the early days, and he had a great he had a great friend, a Sahabi, who had accepted Islam, whose name was Abdullah bin raha de la one, Abdullah bin raha and a Buddha were friends of the lab in LA had accepted Islam, a Buddha had not accepted Islam, Abdullah bin Raja had tried many times to convince up with them about the truthful nature of the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam but to no avail. One day

00:00:44--> 00:00:46

just after he had returned from the Battle of birder

00:00:47--> 00:01:25

Abdullah was worried that what happened to my friend de la How did he survive the battle did he not? He made inquiries from people and they told him that he survived. So he was happy and he left home and he went to his business. Whilst he was at his business about Abdullah bin raha came to the house. And he asked the wife of a Buddha was my friend, a Buddha them. She said, No, he's going to do is going to work. He said, Can I come in, she said, by all means, I mean, you are his friend. So when he went in, he went into the room, the worship room of Abu Dhabi, all the idols were put, and he broke them and smash them to smithereens. And he left. Later on, the wife went there, and she saw

00:01:25--> 00:02:02

what had happened. And she realized that it was the lab in la hora de la one who did this. And she was very worried because she knew how passionate a Buddha was about his worship of idols. So whenever that came home towards the evening from work, he saw his wife sitting outside the house, weeping, looking, frightened, looking scared, looking, worried. So he asked her that What is all this? And she said, that, look, your idols have been destroyed. It's your friend, Abdullah bin Baba, who did it. So initially, there was an absolute rage and fury. He went in, he looked and he was very angry. But then something struck him, something struck him and he came and he sat down. And then he

00:02:02--> 00:02:39

said to his wife, you know, I think my friend Abdullah bin is our highest, trying to pass me a message that if these, these idols could not defend themselves, he could come and break them to smithereens. That How can I wish them How can I wish them and that's when he decided to accept the Shahada, and to proclaim the Shahada. And he went to the sort of la de la vida, he was selling them, and he accepted Islam. At the after, he would show great regret over the fact that he that he did not accept Islam in the initial days. And he would try his utmost to make out for for last time, that's why scholars say that the more he started to learn about Islam, and the more he started to

00:02:39--> 00:03:17

glean from the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, the less inclined he became to talk to him to this material world. And after a while, London gave up doing business altogether. And people would go to him and say, but you know, there's nothing wrong in doing business. A business is also something if you do it with the right intention, you can reward he said, Look, I understand that I don't dispute that. But in the end of the day, I have become totally disinclined, from the knee, I've become totally disinclined from dunya. I want to enjoy the sweetness of direct acts of worship. I've missed out I spent too much of my life in in disobedience. And it's a great lesson for

00:03:17--> 00:03:54

us to learn. Many people. They may be Muslims, but they reform very late in life. They live a life of disobedience and they reform when we reform we must try and make up for lost time. Once the Toba is on its place, but we must try and make up for lost time in terms of accumulating good deeds and doing good deeds. And he lived a very ascetic life until the demise of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Then, during the time of Americana, tabla de la Juan camara De La Hoya and called him and he wanted to make him a governor in the Cydia area in the Sham area. However, he outright refused. He said, No, that's not my cup of tea. I don't want to do that. When he saw that the loved one was

00:03:54--> 00:04:13

insisting Then he said to Mr. Dillon, if you want you can send me to Sham to be a teacher. If you want you can send me I will go there. I will teach them for and I will teach them what I have learned from Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. So no matter the loved one accepted that when I came to Damascus, now by that time, they had been a lot of,

00:04:14--> 00:04:53

you know, military success. It was no more like the early days, you know, things were financially now, much more comfortable and people started to live more comfortable lifestyles. But these Grays Harbor who had grown up with learned Islam in the early days of the teachings of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this did not gel with them and he stood up in the masjid of, of Damascus. And he gave he gave a speech and he gave a heartfelt speech. And he told people about how he saw them becoming negligent in their lives, and how he saw them starting to move away from the simplicity that was advocated by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and encourage them that no,

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

they need to now come once again and familiarize themselves with the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu

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

We'll sell them and keep them keep themselves in check. And when people heard the speech of ease, they broke out crying. And then he became almost like a the resident speaker then at the bedroom a Masjid in Damascus, he would all the time be giving talks. And he would all the time be encouraging people one day he heard a big noise outside. And when he came to investigate, he saw that people were screaming and shouting and hitting a particular person. So they said, what why are you doing this? And they said, No, we are doing this because he has he has perpetrated a very big sin. He has perpetrated a major sin, so we are hitting him and that's why we are using so strong language

00:05:35--> 00:06:11

against him. So Elon said something profound. He said, Tell me something. If this man had fallen into a well, would you not help him to come out? They said, Yes. So he said, there's no need to hit him. There's no need to sway him, help him, make him understand that what he's doing is wrong, and take him out of the wrong that he's doing. So the people said, What are you trying to say? Should we not hate him? Look at the wrong that he's doing? So he said no, don't hate him hate the action. Don't hate him hate the action. So Pamela, what profound advice what profound advice that was given by the rhodiola one, we will leave it there for today inshallah, we will continue the discussion on
