Selam Aleykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Alan Watson and Roman haben Welcome to Sahaba profiles. Today we continue the discussion on the life of the great Sahaba a Buddha Allah refer rhodiola. And in the last discussion, we explained that his actual name, his real name was gender immunogenetic. He came from the reefer tribe, they were known for highway robbery, the corrections to pass his tribe and route to Syria in to do business. from the onset, he was a man known to be very bold, very courageous, very outspoken, he never really worship idols, if we didn't sit well with him. We didn't gel with him from his early days, and he was always in search of the truth. And he made his way to

00:00:38--> 00:01:11

Makkah to makara when he heard about Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam embraced Islam, and he was the first person to proclaim Islam publicly, to go into the Haram in front of the leaders of the operation to announce to them that he had forsaken the way of their forefathers. They beat him almost to death, he had not been for the intervention of our births are the 11, the uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, continuing the story, abou remained in Makkah, until he had learned the basics of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And then the Prophet of Allah gave him an instruction that go back to your people. Now inform your people as to what you have seen and

00:01:11--> 00:01:49

learned from me and call them to Islam. And a Buddha did exactly that. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told him the day you hear that I have prevailed, and now I'm in my own and I got authority, then you come and you meet with me. So Buddha went back to the beautiful tribe, his brother accepted Islam, his mother accepted Islam, he continued to preach the pure Deen of Allah, the majority of his tribe, except that Islam, then he went to a neighboring tribe, and the Islam and he preached to them as well, and they accepted Islam. And by this time, the 13 years of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, stay in Makkah had had had lapsed, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam went to

00:01:49--> 00:02:24

Medina and burger to place an order to place and 100 to place and it was after 100 in one day, the people of Medina were very excited, they saw a large group of people coming. And when they saw this large group of people coming in and quiet his roommate that Who are these people, it was told that the blueford tribe if COMM And the Islam tribe have come, and Buddha was the head of that party, and he brought them all to accept Islam now on the hands of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and from there onwards, he decided to stay with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet of Allah always showed him a great degree of respect, always honored and revered him. He was one of

00:02:24--> 00:03:02

those who accepted Islam. In the early days after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he passed away, he moved away. And he he went to the region of Syria Sham is the broader Syria in those days, and he remained there during the period of the collapse of Baba Casa de la Han and Omar Farooq Abdullah Juan. Now in the time of Kathmandu, the law and there was great prosperity, material prosperity in the early days in the time of abubaker, the law and things were very tough. We know about the the conditions just immediately after the demise of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in the time of Ababa, Amara de la one things were being established towards the latter part of the

00:03:02--> 00:03:43

landscape and then flowing into the life of Earth man. Now there were many conquests many victories. A lot of wealth started to come to the oma there were many new members in the in the oma many will accept that Islam boasts the demise of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and a degree of materialism started to creep in people started to lead more comfortable lives started to live more luxurious lifestyles as compared to before the Abu Dhabi Alon took a very strong and a very firm position in this regard. There is a famous verse of Surah tober where a lot of articles and essays with regards you know, a very painful punishment. You know, the branding on the back like how an animal is

00:03:43--> 00:04:18

branded with with a hot iron to leave a mark so that the farmer can distinguish who is which his animals. Allah says those who hoard gold and silver, those who hoard gold and silver they will be branded with fire on their backs. Will Edina acne zona the harbor will fit better What are you gonna have to be Rila for sure homie either been lm Allah talks about a painful punishment, the abuser or the Alon had this opinion that it was not permissible for you to hoard anywhere else, you to save any wealth to keep anything for a rainy day, whatever you have, you either spend it in charity, or you spend it on your immediate needs. There's no there's no room for for hoarding, and and he would

00:04:18--> 00:04:54

stand up and and the reason he took this very firm position is because he was very worried seeing the the level of materialism that was creeping into the people of the time. And it took a very staunch view, but because that was technically not the view of the other Sahaba because technically it was permissible to to save wealth, and to keep wealth behind you are not obliged to spend everything in charity, although the norm was that a lot was spent in charity, by the Sahaba. And that verse was in specific reference to those who hoard the wealth which is necessary for them to, to to part with like the wealth that needs to be given in Zakat, but because the Buddha had this

00:04:54--> 00:05:00

view, and he was very, from the from the onset, he was a person of great courage and boldness he used to repeat

00:05:00--> 00:05:33

Please stand up in Sham and challenge people that why are you hoarding wealth? While we're at the landfill did a bit difficult he was a senior so how are we? How do I handle him? So he sent him to the minion Armando de la one with mundo de la try to pacify him. But a Buddha was very strong on this method because of the materialism that was creeping in. And then Earth man of the land, asked him if he would go and stay just on the outskirts of Medina because there was a bit of tension building between him and the general masses. And the place name was Roberta and he went and he stayed there. And that is where he passed away. But he was known as this hobby was very bold, very

00:05:33--> 00:05:58

courageous. The first openly proclaim the fact that he had accepted Islam. He brought many Muslims into the deen and he was a great Ascetic. He was a person who always shunned materialism. He was a person who was very simple. One day somebody entered his house and started looking around and saying, Don't waste your goods. Yet about the aina metallicum that Oh, Buddha were the goods of the house. And a Buddha said Lana between hoonah

00:05:59--> 00:06:29

Lucy Lu la sala Medina, he said, No, I have a house in the after, whatever he's a value I'm sending it day. I have a I have a house in the afternoon, what I whatever is a value, I am sending it them. So the great lesson that we learn from the life of the Sahaba and this companion of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is one of greater focus on the year after and a disinclination from the trappings of this world. May Allah grant us the tofik that was Sahaba profiles for myself. Sulaiman ravet Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
