And later on when she told her husband Zubaydah, the loved one about what happened. He told her that it would have been better for her to get onto the

00:03:13--> 00:03:49

camera to accept the offer. It was less shameful than her actually having to walk with abundance of hay. And later on in life lottomatica with Allah then blessed suburban hombre de la and with with wealth, and life became more comfortable, but she she still remained very grounded, very, very dedicated to her Ibadan worship it is mentioned in one day, Superman, a woman of the law and came home and he found a totally engrossed in Salah totaling grace, so he decided I'm not going to disturb and he went away to the marketplace for a while and then he came back and he found that she was still engrossed in a bar dine in serum.

00:03:49--> 00:04:27

he became a very distinguished personality, a great companion of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. He was known for his knowledge for his forbearance for his leadership qualities. And later on in the time of Abdulmalik, baignoire, Marwan there was a difference that broke out between Abdullah bin Zubair and as the leadership and he felt that they had no legitimate claim over the region of Hijaz, and he was the leader and they felt that everyone needed to unify under one leader, and it led to physical warfare, and he took refuge in muckety muck, karma and catapults were being shot into Makkah by the tyrant ruler who was the governor of the Mulligan marwen and that was a judgment use

00:04:27--> 00:04:59
