Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Allen was silent Omar haben beacom Welcome to Sahaba profiles, we commence with the profile of a Buddha, referee rhodiola one. His real name was john Dube. ibnu junagarh There's a famous hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam with reference to a Buddha, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a little hombre Wallah, the little Hydra min Rajan Stockman Ibiza, the earth never carried above it, nor did the sky ever shade under it a more truthful tongue than that of a Buddha. He was known to be a very forthright, a very frank and a brutally honest person. What is his life story he came from the tribe of the farm, the

00:00:46--> 00:01:27

Quraysh. Those used to reside in Makkah from the Quraysh tribe. They used to pass by his tribe and route to Syria when they were doing business. The reefer tribe used to benefit somewhat from the passing trade of the Quraysh. And at times, if they felt like it, they would just rub the Quraysh highway robbery as we would refer to it. And this time, the tribe of reefer became infamous for highway robbery. And for giving a hard time to those would you utilize that particular route to go and do trade in cerium. Nonetheless, Buddha was a member of the tribe, he was known for his extreme courage for his boldness, for his openness for his willingness to openly declare and to say things

00:01:28--> 00:02:07

in public and to fearlessly express his opinion. However, there was one thing in the life of a Buddha de la one that distinguished him from his fellow tribesmen, while his tribesmen were all involved in the worship of idols, he abhorred the worship of idols from the very early part of his life, deep down, it didn't gel with him, it didn't sit with him, he realized that this is not right, this is not correct. This is not on worshipping of something that cannot benefit us cannot harm us worshipping of stone that we have carved with our own hands. And hence abou that was always very restless. He was always looking to see where can I find the truth, who will come to me with the

00:02:07--> 00:02:47

truth. This doesn't make sense to me. And one day he heard about a man who had proclaimed that he was the Messenger of Allah in muckety muck around, so I better call his brother a nice and he said that intelligent Illa MK I want you to go to Malcolm and to find out who is this man he claims to be the Messenger of Allah. And he claims to know the message. He claims to know what is the truth, and he proclaims that he has come with it with the true Deen. Go and find out. So his brother and niece went and he came back and said, Lakota a to Allah he wrote jhulan yet oh lm Academy aluk waiuku kelemen ma Hua be Cherie. So he came in, he said, Oh, Buddha, I've seen a man who calls towards

00:02:47--> 00:03:25

exemplary character. And I see a man who artists beautiful speech, but his speech is not poetry. So there was an intelligent person who said, what are your coolness? Sophie, what do people in Makkah have to say about him? So he's blood and he's responded and said the people call him Asahi, the Colin mccahon. They call him a charade. They call him a saucer, a magician. He put in whole lot of things above that decided that he needed to go for himself and he needed to go and investigate. So he came to macam. He was unknown. I live in Abu Dhabi rhodiola han a young man in Makkah, because of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw him. And he said, Okay, here's a man, a foreign man. He

00:03:25--> 00:04:00

took him home. He entertained him one day, second day, third day, but he couldn't get to the bottom of what actually this man was doing in Macau. What what what brought him in? So finally, he insisted that you need to tell me why have you come to Makkah. So, a Buddha saw him to secrecy and said, I want you to promise me that you won't divulge this information and after securing that guarantee, he explained to the loved one why he had come. And obviously he met now the right man. So I needed the law one took him to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And the scholars have written that when he came to the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, just when he looked at the Prophet

00:04:00--> 00:04:41

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he realized he had found what he had been looking for for a very long time. And when he came in, met when he just entered the home, he said a Salam or Aleikum, wa rasulillah and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam responded and said, Why alayka salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh and they say that a Buddha was the first person who greeted Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the Islamic greeting and it became popular and it became it became widespread after that. So a Buddha accepted Islam and he accepted Islam in the very early days of Islam. Some say he was the 34th person to accept Islam. Others say he was the 45th person to accept

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

Islam. When he accepted Islam. He learned the basics from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he told the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he would like to announce he would like the world to know that he had become the Muslim a Muslim. He had seen the light. He had finally found what he was looking for his entire life.

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned him against him at that time Islam was being propagated very secretly the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was making life very secret it was was was making Tao very secretly. So he wanted to stay, but he wanted a Buddha not to inform others that he had accepted Islam just to stay and learn the basics, but above or the land could not contain that flame of a man that was burning very brightly in his bosom. So up with that went into the harem and the leaders of the Qureshi we're having a session, he stood in the middle of them, and he proclaimed very loudly, and very boldly. Yama[???]a Quraysh. Hey, people of the parish, in the

00:05:38--> 00:06:17

shadow Allah ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, he made the proclamation of Shahada. They pounced on him, they beat him till he was almost unconscious. They heat him until he was almost dying, a burst of the love and the uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam intervened, and the only way he managed to get them to stop was telling them listen, he comes from the reefer tribe, and your caravans have to pass his tribe on route to Syria to do business. You don't want to compromise your relationship with them. And in that way, he had managed to save a Buddha but the Buddha repeatedly would go back and he would proclaim the Shahada in public and he would make it known and after a

00:06:17--> 00:06:39

while, after he had learned the basics of Deen Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him now you go back to your people, and you stay with your people. We will leave it there for today inshallah, in our next discussion, we will continue discussing the profile and the life story of this great hobby above the referee. rhodiola one for myself Sulaiman rabbit Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
