Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Allen was silent woman haben become Welcome to another edition of Sahaba profiles. My name is Solomon dravet. Today we take a look at the story of Xena Binti Josh de la Juan hum. She was the daughter of oma Binti Abdullah Taliban Hashem. In other words, her mother was the paternal aunt of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. Her mother was the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam father's sister, and she was the cousin of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. Her brother was the distinguished general Abdullah bin Joshua rhodiola. And from a very young age, she was known for her generosity for her sympathy for the needy for her devotion to

00:00:39--> 00:01:19

Priam. Initially, she was first married to Zaid bin Harrison, the adopted son of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and later on after her divorce, Zaid bin Harris I divorced her then she married the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the command of a lot of Baraka with alum. Initially when she was married to xavion haritha, the lavonne what had happened was that like many other Muslims, they were forced to make each other to have a senior and then to Medina to the manohara. Because of the marginalization, the suppression, the oppression, the persecution of the curation, and they are undergoing much difficulty and hardship. Anyway, when, when they had reached

00:01:19--> 00:01:54

Medina to munawwara what transpired was that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had returned on the occasion of the conquest of Makkah with the whole family. You know, all his cousin's Xena vintage, and her brother Abdullah bin Josh, and they home in Makkah, they left it empty when they made his first trip to Sydney and then to Medina and Abu sufian. Taking advantage of the situation he occupied the house, and her brother Abdullah bin Joshua on the occasion of the conquest of Makkah. He complained to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him would you rather prefer that Allah grant your house in general, he said, Of

00:01:54--> 00:02:26

course you're also Allah. I prefer that Allah grant me a house in general. And that's when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him then let it go, let the sweat the slide. And from here we learned sometimes even if you have a rightful claim, but if in the broader interests of the society, you're the family, you let it slide, with the hope that Allah will grant you a reward in general. That is what was sort of lasala Hollywood cinema has taught us the coming to how she got married to the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Initially, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent his adopted sons Adrian haritha. Zaid bin haritha we mentioned previously, he was forcefully

00:02:26--> 00:02:59

snatched from his father and sold as a slave and he ended up in Makkah, and he belonged to her ijarah de la vida, and then he came into the possession of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam of freedom. And at the latest stage, his uncle managed to find him in Makkah, and wanted to take him back to his father but he refused to leave the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he had so much of love and respect for the prophets of Allah while he was the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to treat him like his own son, he was considered to be an adopted son, and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam went to look for him to a spouse, a wife, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told Xena but he allowed him this cousin that

00:02:59--> 00:03:17

marries Adrian haritha. She was a bit reluctant because she came from a very noble a very, you know, upper class family and here he was a boy who was was sold as a slave, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam encouraged them and she married him, however, as time went on, and it was on this occasion because when she showed reluctance, Allah revealed the verse Rama kana,

00:03:18--> 00:03:37

will lack of adequate Allah revealed the verse that it is not befitting for a believer male or female, that when the Messenger of Allah tells you to do something you don't do it. So when when this verse was revealed Omar can only move meanwhile Amina chin in naka de la hora solo Amman a coup de la Mola Sierra to mean ambrym.

00:03:40--> 00:04:16

Thereafter, Zane up into Josh in total compliance, she married Zaid, but harissa. But later on what happened that initial, you know, reluctance, what had happened was that she was not very comfortable in the marriage and it created a lot of tension in the marriage, because the lifestyle was very different in the background was very different. Zaid when haritha came to complain to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam encouraged him that makes about and try and keep the marriage intact. But ultimately, the marriage didn't last and he issued a divorce. And she was divorced from xavion Harrison. Now a lot of Monaco with them, had decreed that

00:04:16--> 00:04:56

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam was to marry Xena Binta, Josh, although the Arab Society of that day frowned upon such a marriage, they they would look upon the marriage to your adopted sons wife, as a marriage to your own son's wife. They elevated the adopted son to the same position as a son. Normally a man will never marry his, his his son's wife, even if his son is to pass away, or his son has to divorce her because, you know, his son has been intimate with her and it affects the entire ancestry. And even in Islam, that that's that's the ruling. That's why the father in law becomes the mme and that's why the son in law is in mahamantra, his mother in law, however, a lot of

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

other cortada wanted to abolish this custom because as close as they

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

Bin haritha was to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was not his son, when people used to call him Zaid bin Mohammed, a lot of Baraka with Allah. A lot of article with Allah denounced that in the Quranic idiom, saying that call him by his father's name is a bin hanifa he's not Zaid bin Mohammed even though he grew up in the house of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So gibreel alayhi salatu salam informed Xena Binta, Joshua de la vida or other gibril Ali salatu salam inform Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he was to marry Xena vintage Josh De La Hoya and him and he informed the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in secret beforehand, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:05:34--> 00:06:06

sallam was very worried, because he knew already he had so many accusations being leveled against him by the kurush. He knew that if he were to take into marriage, Zane up into Josh, he the wife of his adopted son or the former wife of his adopted son, the machete kin of Makkah would have a field day. But gibril Allah is salatu salam consoled him and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent this proposal. How did he send this proposal? Well, we will discuss that in our next discussion inshallah. It is to have a profile for myself. Sulaiman, Robert Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
