also gave her permission to leave with her children. But her difficulties did not end now. Because there was no one to to accompany her on the journey from Mecca to Medina. These days, it's a five hour six hour journey by modern day conveyance car or you know, a bus would be a little bit longer. And those days, it was a good few days. You had to travel through the desert, you have to travel by camel, and she she built up the courage and she decided to do so on her own. And she went and she started traveling but she didn't know the way and she met a man called Othman, been up dairy. And he was very surprised to see a woman who's traveling all by herself with her children, from Mecca to

00:02:28--> 00:03:05

Medina. So he inquired and you know, who are you and what's your story and where do you intend to go and and you know, do you know the road, and when when she explained to him, to him her story and she explained to him that she did not have anybody to accompany her. He took pity on him and he decided to be her guide throughout the journey. And she talks very glowingly about him. She says he was such a decent, pure hearted man, there was not a trace of evil in him. There was nothing wrong that you could find in this person. He would lead me at the right times. He would give me intimacy, he would allow me privacy with my children. He never made any untoward advances to me. He wasn't looking for

00:03:05--> 00:03:41

any recognition for any sort of compensation, nothing. He just took me all the way to Medina to monitor them.

And when he went there, he fought in a very

00:03:41--> 00:04:17

courageous way. But once again, he became wounded and that old wound opened up in the blood started to float, and he was struggling, although he managed as the leader to crush the acid, but when he came back to Madina, munawwara his injuries were grievious he was struggling, and it wasn't long before he realized that he was not going to make it. And he was on his deathbed when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to visit him and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam petted his hand and consoled him and made dua for him and Abu Salah asked the prophets of Allah Salaam to also make dua, that Allah guarantees family a protector and a provider just like him. So the Prophet

00:04:17--> 00:04:52

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made and he said to the prophets of Allah, Islam, including your da that Allah has given my wife almost cinema, it hasn't been who will give a neither Soto nor hardship and the prophets of Allah, Allah Allah made the DA.

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself proposed for her. She was very happy but she had certain concerns. She said, Oh rasulillah I have three reservations. Firstly, I'm hot headed. I have a temper. And I don't want to show any disrespect to you, you are the Prophet of Allah. Secondly, I have an elderly lady. And thirdly, I have many children. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Look, I will make dua to a lump that he cools your temper. In as far as you are elderly, I am also not a young man anymore. And as far as

00:05:36--> 00:06:07
