hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Abdullah who are solely Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi h moraine. So Mashallah, we have quite a few more people in our class than we had last week. And that means there's two things that I have to do. The first thing I have to do is I have to tell everyone who's watching the live stream at home, that I think we found a solution for you to participate in the class. So I don't know if you guys have been following this, but we had a problem. The problem was that when you broadcast a class on YouTube, for kids, that class doesn't allow you.
It doesn't allow you to have comments, nobody can share, nobody can answer questions at home. So what we decided to do instead is we decided that we are going to have a telegram group. And there's an official telegram group, if you put it on the screen is on screen. So any one of the parents who has telegram they can join it, and inshallah there will be a discussion group for each class. So you'll be able to ask questions, and you'll be able to answer questions on that. It's just a trial we tried out this week. But if any of the parents who are watching at home for their kids, they want to get their kids involved in the class, you just need to go to this telegram group, and inshallah,
there'll be a way for you to join and to discuss and to share your answers with us as well. Okay, my second announcement, I said to I've got three sorry. My second announcement is to apologize for the girls today, to the girls today, not for the girls today, to the girls today. And that is because today on the girls side, we don't have the usual audio link that I have usually Normally, the girls can hear me and I can hear their answers. But today, we don't have that set up today. So today for the girls, they've got two choices. They can just shout their answers out and Mark themselves as correct or wrong. Or if there's someone who has, if they're in touch with anyone on the girls side,
and they can, you know, dads or brothers or whatever, they can shout their answers out for them, then we can do that. But today, we don't have a link for the girl site. That's my fault. I apologize for that.
Okay, my third thing I have to do today is because we have so many people new here today
because we have so many people here who are new. I don't know Mohammed, you have a link for the anyone on the girl site.
Anyone can message you anything?
No, okay, no problem. No problem.
My third thing is because there's so many of you who are new here today, I have to do a recap. I have to spend my first 10 minutes 15 minutes to find out where we are because otherwise I'm going to start talking about something nobody has any idea what I'm talking about.
And that's not normally the case, right?
Okay. All right, inshallah. So, who can tell me? What have we been talking about? What's been our topic that we've been covering for the last
few weeks? I was gonna say four weeks. It's been more than four weeks. I think.
We got to people, no, anyone else? No.
Do you know what we've been talking about?
Okay, I'll let you if you do, I'm not gonna I'm not gonna pick on you. If you don't put your hand up. I'm not gonna ask you.
All right, Mohammed, what we've been talking about.
the Sahaba correct. I did understand what you said that you're absolutely correct. We have been talking about the Sahaba. Alright, first question, recap. Who is
as a hobby, when we see Sahaba Sahabi? Who are they? Who are those people? Yes, having
are very good. We were talking about 10 but is more than 10. Actually, how many made Hajj with the Prophet slice Allah. We said at the end of his life, 100,000 of them there was who made Hajj together. So there's more than 10 but you're right. There was 10 special ones we've been talking about out of all of those 100,000 we've been talking about 10 very special ones. Who are they?
Okay, very good. You tell me who do you know who's one
Okay, Mohammed sighs home is our Prophet right? Right around him. What do we call the people who were living around him and with him his friends? What do we call them?
Guan Yusuf companions. And the word for a companion in Arabic is Sahabi. So we're talking about people who met the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. I know the girls are shouting out the answers right now in sha Allah, but we don't have a link for them today. So, someone who met the Prophet slice Allah.
Does anyone remember what we said about the Sahabi? They met the prophets. I said, there has to be some rules. Some things have to be that
they met him.
Adults are banned from answers completely.
They have to be a Muslim when they met him and someone else apart from use of.
So okay, are you guys with me? Are you following me? Someone who met the Prophet so I said, during his life, when he met him, he was a Muslim. And what else?

A Muslim. That's it. So somebody who met the Prophet slice Allah during his lifetime.
So if you went to the grave of the prophets, I seldom now are you? Sahabi?
No, but you met him. You went to his grave, you went next to his grave? Why are you not Sahabi?
Because it wasn't,
he wasn't alive at the time you um, you have to meet him when he is alive. And when you met him, you were Muslim. And when you died, you died a Muslim, those people we call them Sahaba.
That's what we call all of them companions. And one of them we call sahadi. Okay, as Zack rightly mentioned, the best of all of the Sahaba

Okay, was Earth man robbed? The Allahu on an earth man's was the last story that we did last week.
Now, after Earth man comes the next best of all of the companions. And I can see three people with their hands up, which I don't know why they've got their hands up. Can I ask a question? Are you just guessing what I'm gonna ask?
Okay, what am I gonna ask?
who is an expert? What's the answer?
Ali Ibn Abi taalib
rhodiola one. Okay. So let's first of all start with a simple question.
What was Ali's name?
Maybe I'm asking you a trick question. Do you think I've asked you a trick question?
I like asking trick questions. What was it his name?
I'm gonna give just two. We're just gonna give 10 seconds for the group to catch up.
Okay, what are they thinking about it? Okay, they're thinking about it honest.
Honest, says his name was Ali. You're correct. Of course his name was Ali. But I asked a slightly Trick question, which indicates that maybe that wasn't the name. He was born with
olive oil a bit correct. But that wasn't the name he was born with.
Mohammed, you know?
See, I'll tell you something. When I leave when I be thought he was born, his father who was who? His father was
very good. His father was Abu Talib. His father Abu Talib wasn't there.
When he was born, and because his father wasn't there, his mom gave him his name.
And when his dad came back, he didn't like that name. So he decided he was going to change it to ollie.
Anyone know what the name he was giving even you give me the meaning of it? If you want if you don't know the name, it's a difficult question. I'm just asking you to see how much you know if you've picked anything up. Do you know Mohammed?
No, we come into that we're coming to the dirt. Hold that thought okay, storage, save it. Come back to
No, it wasn't is that some people are cool like that. Some people do get they call that with the same name as they that?
no, no, he wasn't given a name wasn't a shift key name. It wasn't like a name of like worshipping anything else besides Allah. Okay. What do you think?
Very good. It was Hadler. He was given the name of a lion. He was given the name of a lion and his name like that the meaning of that name is one of the names of the lion in Arabic. But when his dad came back, Abu Ptolemy didn't like the name, so he changed his name to Addy. Okay, now.
Usually, when people get a nickname in Arabic, usually when people get a nickname in Arabic, they usually get the nickname of their first child. Agreed?
Yes, no, maybe so, possibly. So for example, you let's say for example, my oldest child, his name is Abdullah. So my nickname will be Abu Adorama. Okay, that's usually how it works. Okay, if it's a girl, then it's like that. So now the question is, are these child first child and the name that he was known by was Abolhassan, because his first child was and hasn't, but he had another name. And Mohammed mentioned it to me a minute ago, what was his other name?
The one who was covered by dust. He called him the prophets. I seldom call him Abu Torah.
He gave him a nickname of the one that was covered in dust. And the reason he gave him that nickname, and I know we're getting ahead in the story a little bit, but he gave him that nickname. Because one day, he had an argument with his wife, we come to his wife in a minute rhodiola and her and he left the house. And when the Prophet size and sent someone looking for him, he found him sleeping in the masjid. And then when he came to him, the prophets I send him to him, it was covered in dust, and he brushed the dust from him. And he said, Get up, or other two up, or father of any Oh, the one who is covered in Abu Torah, the one who is covered in dust. And some of the narrations
mentioned that only the prophets I some used to call him that name. That nobody else used to call him that name except the prophets. I said everyone else used to call him Abolhassan. But the prophets I said used to call him Abu up. Because when he found him that day, sleeping in the masjid, he was covered. He was covered in dust. Okay, all of the other biographies. So far, we always asked you to guess how much older or younger the person was then the profit slice. So I'm not actually the easiest question I want to ask you for the rest of the day. I'm not gonna ask you a question easier than this was
I live in avatar leap older or younger than the Prophet slicin
if you think he was older, but we had
if you think it was older
using it, but I thought it was older than the Prophet. So I said,
If you think he was younger,
is there a reason why you put your hand up for both?
Okay, no mind? No, like, okay, he was younger. How much younger? Okay, let's start at, let's start at two years younger. Who was two years younger, by the way? Abu Bakar. Right.
Give or take says a year. Okay. I think in the class, we said two. If I'm not mistaken, we said two.
Do we say too far? bacala? We said a year or less than two years.
so let's just say two, two years. anyone think it was the same age as abubaker?
Oh, you want to do a poll? Okay, so do 248 or 10?
something like that? Let's try. Okay, four years. Do you think he was four years younger than the profit slice?
Okay, nobody thinks so. Six years?
Maybe one person?
10 years younger than the profit slice.
What about more than that?
Okay, nearly everybody here thinks I think I did your poll wrong because I wasn't concentrating.
The answer is more than that. Okay.
It was very young. The reason we know he was young is that Ali robiola and was the first young boy to become Muslim. Do you remember that? We said that in the story, we said it in the story of Abu Bakar that it was the first young boy the first young boy to become Muslim. And in fact, Ollie
roughly speaking was around about
he was born around about 10 years before the Prophet size alum.
began his prophethood How old was the prophets? I seldom when he began to teach people about Islam and preach how old to see
roughly speaking, how old was it? You think?
40 let's say 40. Let's make it easy. He was 40.
And he was born 10 years before that. So what was the difference in age between them?
30 years, roughly speaking, that right? Am I right on that? inshallah? Okay, around about 30 years. So that means that it was a very young boy, when the prophets I said first preached Islam. It was around 10 years old, and he became Muslim at that age. Any of you here 10? Anyone here? 10? Can you imagine that your age you make a decision that I'm going to become I'm gonna you know that that you hit you heard about the religion of Islam, and you decided you were going to become Muslim, like that.
So Ali became Muslim at the age of around about 10 years old.
And he was the first boy to become Muslim. Some of the scholars said he was the first person to become Muslim. And we spoke about that we spoke about how the job we spoke about earlier we spoke about Abu Bakar. And we said that the first man to become Muslim was Abu Bakar. And the first boy to become Muslim was Ali. And the first lady to become Muslim was Khadija or the Ola Hall and him okay. We also talked about people's family.
And we talked about how close each person is to the profit slice.
So who is closest aboubaker I mean by family, by family, not by friendship or by by family, who was a closest relative of the Prophet slice Allah was the Abu Bakar or Mr. postman or Ali? Who was the
who was the closest relative? Moby What do you think? Ali robiola one and that's because what relation now I'm gonna ask this question for the telegram group. How is it related to the Prophet slicin
We let them come back.
Ali even Abby polyp. So Ali's father is Abu Talib and Abu Talib is the prophets.
Uncle. So Ali is the prophets cousin sallallahu Sallam of the Allahu anhu. He's the prophets cousin, because he's his uncle's son, and your uncle son is your cousin. So he's the Prophet. So I said lambs cousin.
So he's from which tribe then?
What was the prophets tribe called? That small tribe the Prophet size and was a part of not Quraysh, the big tribe, the small
that the small group that the prophets I said was from what would they call Hamlet, Banu Hashim. So Ali rhodiola, who and was also from Banu Hashim
was also from Banu Hashim. So that means the prophets icims grandfather, what was his name? What was the name of the prophets grandfather? So I said,
Do you know that I want someone different? Yes, no. And you know,
so his father's name is Abdullah
Abdulmutallab. Very good. I don't know. Tell him so what was Ali's grandfather's name?
Okay. It's not complicated. their cousins.
His father was Abu Talib and his grandfather was also Abdulmutallab.
So they had the same,
the same grandfather, right? He and the Prophet sighs lm had the same grandfather,
the prophet size and his father's name was Abdullah and Ali's father's name was Abu Talib. And their father was Abdul muttalib. And he's the grandfather. The prophets I said,
Did Abu Talib that's Ali's father. Did he die as a Muslim?
Because we said for us, man, his mom died his mom's mom died as a Muslim. Right? What about other types of use of
No, no, Abu Talib. He didn't die. As a Muslim. He came very close to Islam. And this I want to talk to you about because I think this is important. Give me one minute. I think this is a really important lesson. A really important lesson.
Abu Talib used to love Islam.
Right You with me? You still love Islam. He used to praise Islam in his poetry. He used to defend Islam. And he used to help the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And if the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was in danger, Abu Talib used to try to defend him and help him.
Why then do you think he didn't become Islam?
Go on. What do you think?
He was just trying?
Like he died just before he was trying to become Muslim? No, it's a very good answer. But that's not quite not quite the reason. It's very, very good. A good very good try. No, it wasn't the he died just before he became Muslim.
While we got on telegram
What do they think?
Oh, very good. So that was the right answer, that he was embarrassed of what people would think about him if he did something different to what his father did.
And a lot of people do you think a lot of people are like that, right? A lot of people maybe they want to do the right thing. But they don't do the right thing. Why? They don't do the right thing because they're scared of what other people will think. So when Abu Talib was about to die, the prophets lie Selim came to him. That's at least that the prophets I send came to him and the prophets I seldom he said to him, yeah, I'm my uncle, c'est la ilaha illa Allah.
And I will argue your case in front of Allah.
And next to him there were two people from koresh. And they said to Abu Talib, are you going to leave the religion of Abdulmutallab? Are you going to leave your father's religion? Are you going to go a different way? Are you going to let all the people say are the people going to see about you that you left? How do people think? I will call it is going to
Die nobody's got he's not going to mind what people say about him afterwards. But because of what his reputation and what he was worried about, in the end of his life, he said Bella Allah miletti Abdul muttalib, I am going to die on the religion of Abdulmutallab. And what was the religion of Abdulmutallab was Islam? No. So he chose to die on the religion of the idol worshippers, and he didn't die. He didn't die as a Muslim.
But Ali was totally different for the Allah when he straight away even as a young boy, he made the decision that he wanted to. He wanted to become a Muslim. And he accepted Islam at a very early age.
Where was Ali? radi Allahu anhu.
Where was he brought up? or How was he brought up? Who was around him?
Who are the people around him?
Okay, Mohammed, what do you think?
He was brought up around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, very good. He was brought up good around the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam in the best family out of all of the families of out of all of the families of koresh.
Out of all of the families of koresh.
So because he was brought up in such a good household, what do you think that it was known for? Let's talk about his personality. What kind of things was was he known for?
What was he known for? Let's have a think. Also on the telegram group, they can start thinking about it as well. What do you think?
truthfulness? For sure, because somebody was brought up with the prophets I seldom he's gonna learn to be truthful because the prophets is almost always truthful. Very good.
To Be kind, okay, good.
Breathe. I'd even thought it was known for being very, very brief.
He was known for being very brief.
What else do you think he was known for?
forgiveness, okay, I like that good.
For being one of the best of the prophets lie salams companions. What else do you think he was known for?
For helping people, okay. He was known for being very brief. You is known for being very, very brief.
And he took part and we're going to hear that he took part in a lot of different battles, in a lot of different battles. And he defended the Prophet sallallahu ala, he was held up very briefly was very brief.
Who is it famous that he got married to?
Who is he famous? He got married to?
Everybody should know the answer to this question.
Did we have any more characteristics about it on the telegram group, any more people got any suggestions?
Sorry, trustworthiness. This is the one I was waiting for. trustworthiness. He was known for being trustworthy.
The Prophet sallallahu wasallam gave him the banner, you know, the banner that the people fought underneath, you know, in the army. I don't know if you guys know when the armies used to go out. They used to carry like, a big banner like flags here. And all the fighting would take place there.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said I'm going to give the banner tomorrow to someone who Allah and His Messenger love him and he loves a lot. He loves Allah and His Messenger Allah and His Messenger love him. And that was at the Navy pilot. So he was very trustworthy and the Prophet size and left him in charge of Medina in some situations, he left him responsible and he left him in charge of all of the Muslims in Medina. So he was very trustworthy and very responsible and very brief. Who did he marry?
Okay, two people are playing the hands of three people
is a very easy question. This one
telegram group got answered in the back. He has no one else got a handle on. I don't know your name. Sorry. Tell me your name. What's your name?
I've just set up okay. Fatima. Very good. Absalom calm
Clearly correct answer. He married Fatima and who is Fatima?
The daughter of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. So that makes Ali, the prophets son in law.
Who else was the Prophet son in law? So Lola is something that we've heard about his biography recently. We just did it last week.
I forget his name. Don't put your hand if you forgot his name, God.
Or if man is man, or man married ruqayyah and when ruqayyah died rhodiola and hi he married uncle zoom. Probably Allah who and Ali, he married Fatima. There's something special about Fatima. There's a lot of things that are special about farty, Marathi, Allah and her. But out of all of the children of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam there are some things about Fatima that are special.
One of them is that they said that out of all of the children of the prophet SAW I said, Fatima was the most like him.
She was the most like him the way she behaved and the way she walked and the way she spoke she was they used to remind you of the of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the way she her mannerisms and the way she was used to remind, but there's something special about how long she lived for
Who can tell me
not just you're not in yours or anything like that. Yes. And what do you think? Yes.
When the prophets lie Selim died.
So, just a short time after the Prophet sighs so she outlived the Prophet size. She lived longer than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
she lived longer, but just only a little bit longer than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
Okay, very good. And
what else was special about fathima? What about
we said the ruqayyah she had a baby right and the baby died, right? The boy the boy died Abdullah he died.
What about Fatima and her children
who knows anything about the children of Ali and Fatima?
Hamad knows good. Anyone else? No. I'm sure the girls are saying we know but you didn't put the audio link so we can't hear what you say.
Go on Mohammed.
after Who? Who are the children the children of Fatima? Who are they?
Hassan and Al Hussein for all the Allahu anhu
Okay, Mashallah. Very good. Very, very good. zeto cusu
al Hassan Al Hussein,
Those two boys
did the prophets I seldom have
or out of the prophets, icims grandchildren
of the prophets I send his grandchildren
who passed away many of them passed away. But the two that were the two boys who were the the leaders of the young people in Jenna, Al Hassan, and Al Hussein, probably Allah who and Homer.
So those two the those two boys that were the grandchildren of the Prophet sizer that went on to live for a long time. Al Hassan and Al Hussein, those two they were the children of Ali and Fatima.
They were the children of Ali and Fatima. The prophets I said didn't have any any male children any boys right? Or did he have boys?
Children who are boys, his children
what do you think?
Are they all they're very good so he had but they died.
He did. Whenever like, this is like the person that was like smoke store sale.
zadara haritha Very good. Very good. So here the Prophet sighs I'm adopted, or took care of zayde haritha rhodiola one, but the Prophet sighs him didn't have any boys who lived and they all passed away. They all passed away. They all passed away
the lineage of the prophets, I said that continued
in that way. And it was through an avatar lip and through
Fatima, radi Allahu, and her rhodiola and, and that was like the like, as we said, Al Hassan, and Al Hussein
from among the voice.
I don't want to do too much more. And I know because I don't want the class to be too long. So we're going to have to do, we're definitely gonna have to do a part two, because we haven't really started yet. But there was too many new people in the class today. So I wanted to just take it slowly and just recap.
Okay, I just talked briefly,
what Ali ibn abee taalib two things. I want to talk about how his life was in Makkah with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and what he learned from the Prophet, slice them in Makkah, and then we talk about his migration to Medina.
Okay, so those two things we talk about. So, Ali rhodiola, and he learned a lot from the Prophet slicin.
And one of the things that he learned from the prophets I said that you see later on in his life is how to call people to Islam. Because he was with the prophets. I seldom used to be with him. When the prophets I seldom used to tell the people about Islam in Makkah. So in Makkah, what was the main job of the prophets? I send them in Makkah, what was mostly what was he doing in Makkah?
Very good. Praying. He was praying. Definitely he was praying. All of the prophets used to pray. But what wasn't the main focus in Makkah, because the prayer didn't start until the end of the time in Makkah. It was very late in the time when the Muslims used to pray five times a day the Prophet says Mr. Pray but it wasn't like, like we pray now. It wasn't like that. In the early days in Makkah, what was it? What was more about the message about at that time? I think I haven't asked us for a while.
teaching people about preaching Islam to people, right? teaching people about what what was Islam all that why is Islam all about?
That's a question for you. If I ask you what Islam all about, Zack, what do you think what's Islam all about?
I can just take out for one second so I can hear praying, okay, we talked about praying totally, but before praying.
So if today, I go to a temple, and I pray to one of the statues is that Islam? No, right. So it's not just about praying.
Believing in Allah, okay, if I believe in Allah, but I don't pray. Is that okay? No, so you both gave me half the answer. You gave me half the answer and you gave me half the answer, but we have to combine your answers together. So once a praying and once said, believing, but really we need about let's see, call Mohammed. worshipping Allah alone,
worshiping Allah so making it that whenever you pray, or whenever you make, whenever you sacrifice you only do it for Allah. Right? Everything you do just for Allah alone, just for Allah alone.
Okay. That was the message that the prophets I seldom was given to his people because what did they used to worship? Did they used to worship Allah, Allah? Who lot of people put their hand up?
I would see someone have asked what do they used to worship?
This some of them worship idols, very good. Some of them worship idols, some of them worship prophets, some of them worship angels, some of them worship the sun. Some of them worship the stars. The Prophet sighs haven't called them to worship Allah alone. And that was the job that Ali bin Vitaly learned from him, how to call the people to worship Allah alone, how to call the people
to worship Allah alone.
Before the hedge run, when we were talking about Abu Bakar, Abu Bakar went with the prophets like some right to Medina. Yeah.
Left Makkah went to Medina, Abu Bakr and the Prophet size and when
Together who stay behind
sleep in the profits bed
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was that
for all behind us? Yep. Who was it? earlier? Oh, the last one. Was that dangerous?
Do you think it was dangerous? It was dangerous, right? Because what would the what would the people in Macau are planning to do?
What were they planning to do? Yeah.
Kill Mohammed sigh Sal. And they were planning to kill him. So if someone is planning to kill someone, and then someone says to you that we use like, will you lie in their place? What would you say? No, right? You'll be scared because you'd be scared to lie in their place. Someone's gonna come say, look, someone's going to come and kill me tonight. Will you just lie in my bed instead? Like No. But Ali knew that this is for the profits that I sell them. For the sake of Allah. He was so brave, that he was willing to stay there. And when he came out in the morning,
the people who had gone around the house of the Prophet sites and they were ready to kill him, they realized that it was Ali. Rob the Allahu and
and they asked Ali, where's the Prophet? So I said,
and he said, I wasn't the one watching over him.
You told him to leave. And he left.
And they beat it for that. And he when he gave him the answer, they hit him.
But it had a job.
His job was
his job was to go and finish some things for the profit sites and whatever the profit side some had left, you know, give this to someone. Fix this organize this for me before he left.
And in three, after three days, he caught up.
Or he went to catch up with the profit slice alum on his journey.
But he didn't he didn't reach the profit slice and went with Abu Bakar. Right. It went after him three days later, and he had to hide couldn't just go open. He had to hide. He had to sneak to walk.
And they said that he traveled day and night until his feet were swollen and the skin of his feet was broken.
He didn't have any camel to ride at that time.
He walked at night.
And he didn't have any one to join him on his head. Can you imagine that? Do you know how far it is from Mecca to Medina roughly?
Do you know how far is I know how far isn't kilometres? I'm not sure. I'm not great with miles but roughly. How far is it? How much? You know better than me?
No kilometres. It's about 400 and something odd kilometres here.
let's have a quick check how many miles that is?
About 250 miles. Can you imagine walking 250 miles on your feet?
And imagine it was hot. Very hot. And it's desert right? So if you walk in the day, what will happen?
You'll die from the heat right? And if you walk at night, what are you worried about?
what's around at night?
What do you think?
You're scared? There's all kinds of it's not a safe road you're not walking with street lamps. Yeah, it's there's not lamps on both sides and nice people have nice shops along the way you can stop by it's scary. There's there's no there's robbers there are. There are animals, there are insects, there are all kinds of things that bite you and sting you. And there are all kinds of different things on the road. So Ollie rhodiola and when he made a jeweler, he couldn't walk in the daytime because it was too hot. He had to go at night and hide and he didn't have any one on his hedgerow with him. He went by himself. And when he reached Medina, his feet were so they said that his feet
were sore, swollen, and that they are all of the skin had broken on his feet. He had walked all the way himself, rather your loved one.
I think that is a good place for us to stop.
Because this is our first time that we had a lot of people in the class
and the story of leaving every time it might be a bit long so I don't want to get I don't want you guys to get bored. I want you guys to stay, you know, you know enjoy the class and for it to just be a certain that How long did we record for now?
50 Yeah 50 minutes is in a 45 minutes 15 minutes is enough for the class inshallah. Okay, before we finish up, who has any questions? I want to hear some nice questions, not necessarily about it as you like about whatever you like, inshallah.
How did she walk? How did he? How did he? How did he walk a night? It's a very good question. Very good question. was excellent question. You can't imagine how somebody can live like that, right? Just walking 250 miles, like on their bare feet. without, you know, like, without anybody to take you without any company without just like that. The only thing you can say is that it was very, very strong and very brief. And that Allah helped him because his intention was sincere. Right. He will he was sincere in his intention. Good. Very good question. Yes. What's your question?
are his first name was Addy. But his name before when he was born was Hadar when he was when he was born. And it means lion. And he when he was when he was born, that was the name his mom gave him. And his dad changed it to Ali. The word Ali, it's to do with being high right? Having a high place. Allegiant being having a high place.
How old that is quite cool. and answer the question then. How old was Ali? When he made Hitler?
Roughly? We said that when the Prophet slicin preached Islam he was how, how old? 10? Roughly? How long was the Prophet sighs I'm in Makkah for
how long was the provinces in Makkah, before he went to Medina.
Put one, add one, add 113 years. So it would have been around about how old
23 about that, about when he made his you're about 23 years old when he made Hydra by himself. very brief and very strong.
Okay, who else had a question at the back? Yes. Remind me your name. I know your name, but I forgot.
We're going to talk about how it died robiola. And because it's a big story. Because if you remember where we left off last week, we left off the earth man was killed, right? The people broke into his house and they killed him. So now Ali is going to have a very difficult time, right? Because he now has all these people who've broken and killed us, man. And what's he going to do? We hear about that?
Sharla next week if we managed to finish it by next week. Yes, Yusuf was a Christian.
Fatima she died rhodiola her and her after the provinces slicer led by a short very short time.
We talk about her biography we get to her biography, that she that she died a natural she died a natural death of the Lorena. I don't remember that she died from so do you remember she dies with some specific she died a natural death.
But I don't remember like it was a particular sickness or anything. The Prophet sighs I'm told her that she would die soon after him. Because when she came to him, he told her something to make her cry and something to make her laugh. She cried and she laughed when he was dying. She came to him and he whispered something to her and she cried and she left. What made her cry is that he was going to die. And what made her laugh is that very soon she was going to join him.
What was your question behind you, Sophia? Remind me your name.
questions? Go for it.
How do you like seeing the lights? Because we see. Very good question. You know how you see in the night Allah gave you something Allah said well who are Lady gyla la como nojo malita tofi Javi follow Mati battery, well,
Allah made the the stars for you as a way to guide your way in the darkness of the night. So it's difficult because when we live in the city, the city has bright lights and you don't really see but if you ever go out to the countryside when it's really dark, you can see the moon and you can see the stars and the stars show you which way which way to go. I something I don't really know much about I'm not very good at it. But it's really interesting that you can actually know which way to go by following the stars.
The stars, Allah put them there to show you which way to go. You had another question. So
if this were all, like his skin was like ripped off, how can you walk with that? Yeah, it would have hurt him so much right? It would have hurt him so much. But that shows you if you have in your heart bravery, and you really want to do something for Allah, you can do amazing things. That's why you hear, like, for example, in the story of, let's say, for example, in the story of Mossad, even when he died in a battlefield, and they cut off one of his hands, and he didn't stop, but he took the flag with his other hand, and they cut off his other hand, and then he took the flag with his two arms like that. He didn't let it go. Can you imagine if somebody even cut your fingernail you cry?
And he How about if somebody cut your hand off, and you don't stop? That's how the Sahaba used to be. Because that's how much they wanted to do things for Allah, and how much their heart was connected to Allah, that they even when it was really hard for them, they kept on, they kept on going. Any last last last questions. I'm gonna take just I'm going to take because I heard from some of you already. So I'm just gonna take a last last question. Gone?
How is the journal going to be boom? Oh, how is that that we have to do? You know, what is? it? It's really good question. I think we that we have to do a whole topic on the digital, a whole kids class, on the digital and on the last designs of the Day of Judgment, we have to do like a whole series on it. Maybe, maybe we can do that soon. When we finish this the harbor, maybe we can talk about the Day of Judgment. And we can talk about the signs of the Day of Judgment. Okay. We talk about the day, jack? Zack, you had a quick question.
How do you nighttime, or in the daytime?
and nighttime? How do you know which way to play the prayers? Which way to pray? Which I'll start again, at nighttime? How do you know which way to pray. You can use the stars. If you know how to do it. You can use the stars the place at the position of the stars to find out where is north? And where is Eastern? Where is south awareness West. So for example, if you're going from Mecca to Medina, you're going north, right? So you need to face which way in your prayer south, right, you have to turn around face the face the way you came. So one way is that if you know where you came from, you can turn around and face the way you came. But if you don't know where you came from, then
you have to use the stars to find out where is north? And where is south. In our here where we are engaged said I know people watching at home might not be engaged but where we are against it. And in the UK, do you know which direction you face to pray?
North East Southwest, Southeast northeast, Southwest, Northwest?
Who knows? Gone?
South East very good. It's actually 120 degrees roughly 118 122 peace and se. Very good. That's useful because if you don't if you ever get stuck in the dark, and you're by yourself and you want to know which way to pray, if you can find north, what would you do?
Find north, turn a quarter turn you'll be facing What? East? Then turn
a little bit more, a little bit more. And then you'll be facing the Kaaba in Mecca. So if you face North turn a quarter turn and a little bit more. That's for the UK. Very good. Okay, guys, I think very quickly gone. I got a question here going
for like how does he do his
like his, his, his widow, her, his widow. Okay.
If you don't have water for whoodle sometimes you carry water with you. Sometimes you can find water on the road to any by you can find certain places where there is water. But if you don't find water, and you don't have any with you, you're going to make tianmu that means you're going to use the sand, you're going to use the sand and you're going to strike the sun down. And then you're going to wipe over your face and over your hands like that. That's cool to see that make sense.
You understood what I meant. You don't have any water. You're going to tap your palms in the sand. Wipe over your face and wipe over your two hands. I'm going to draw a line on the questions otherwise I think we won't stop we'll have just quickly on telegram they didn't ask okay if they didn't ask you can take their question squad.
There's no water in the desert. True but there are sometimes places like there could be wells like sometimes from place to place you might find a town that has a well right
Like you might find a village or you might find some people have water. Yeah. And sometimes you have like,
I don't know what they call like, the places where they give the animals water and things like that. So yeah, there's usually no water in the desert. But sometimes you can find water as you're going along the way. Yeah, sometimes you can refill. Yeah. Instead of sign. How do you do it? Same way, same wave as instead of sand. If you don't have if you have soil, same way, strike your hands down.
Wipe over your face, wipe over your right hand in your time. Even if it's a little bit wet, it's okay. It's gonna just make you a little bit muddy. But it's okay. If you don't have water, that's what you have to do. Okay, guys, I think we're going to inshallah, stop there. Because we've been going for a long time, generally, we try and keep the class to less than an hour. So that's what Allah made easy for me to mention. And Allah knows best for those watching at home. I hope that the telegram group was useful for you. We're not going to keep that group going. So that the the one that is on the screen that will be kept.
That will be kept. But we don't want discussion to be going on all day and all night just at the class time we'll open the discussion, and then we'll close the discussion after the class is finished inshallah. So that way we know the conversation is not going all the time. But on the Mohammed team, official, telegram official telegram, we will update you as to class times. And we'll also post the link for classes and Juma and things like that as well inshallah. So it's a good way to stay in touch. That's what I made easy for me to mention Allah knows best wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi h mine
