Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh My dear brothers and sisters, and welcome to a new episode of In the light of the Sahaba the Companions whom Allah subhanaw taala chose and blessed to have the companionship and to be in the presence of our beloved newbie sal Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam, every single one of the companions has a tale to tell. And every single one of them has a story that we can extract the benefits from insha Allah Allah. In this episode, we will go through the beautiful story of on selama what are the Allahu Anhu whose name was hint bint Abi Omiya or the Allahu anha. Now the story goes right back to the beginning of the call of the Prophet alayhi wa

00:00:49--> 00:01:21

sallam, when he first received revelation from Allah subhanaw taala that there were only a few companions who actually accepted Islam, from those few individuals was on Selma and her husband, Abu selama, and their one son. Now through the time that they lived in Mecca, they went through a very, very difficult time, where they were persecuted and they were oppressed, just for saying La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, but Alhamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala blessed him with iman. And they persevered and struggled and strived with their Islam in Makkah.

00:01:23--> 00:02:03

After a short while, it became very difficult for the Muslims to live in Mecca. Therefore, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam permitted them are some of the companions to make Hijra that they would leave maca, and that they would go to a learn court Habesha, which is modern, the Abyssinia Abu selama and I'm selama with their son they made that great journey Subhanallah to leave Morocco to leave their home and to reside in the new land of Virginia, whose leader was known to be just unfair, and Niger she who later on embraced Islam, and became a great Muslim Alhamdulillah so Abu Salah man ohm selama they live there in Habesha for a while. After a short while they heard that

00:02:03--> 00:02:45

the situation in Makkah had somewhat improved under the Muslims were then able to practice the Islam more freely. So Abu Salim and OMA selama with their young child, they returned to Makkah, however, only to find that Subhanallah the situation was even worse than it was before Abu Salim and um, Salah mama very famous family and they were known to be a very strong family. In fact, Abu selama Radi Allahu Anhu was known to be a very noble husband, and that they had very, very good etiquettes with one another, the family of Salomon Abu selama, our beautiful example for us as Muslims to look up to that we should try to emulate their example in being strong Muslims and compassionate and

00:02:45--> 00:03:21

loving and merciful to one another. So while in Makkah they were unable to persist and to practice their Islam freely. So again, the Prophet sallallahu ala Selim permitted the Muslims on a hole to make the great Hydra from Mecca, all the way to El Medina. So the Muslims one by one began gathering their belongings, gathering their possessions to leave their home to go and live in a new land. Abu Salim Radi Allahu Anhu they had one right, began filling his ride with their belongings, their clothes and possessions. And then they were going to leave Mecca to go to El Medina.

00:03:23--> 00:04:08

Upon leaving the tribe, which I'm selama belong to, they saw her leaving, and they stopped them all and said, Where are you all going? This woman belongs to our tribe, and we will not let her go. She is one of our daughters, you can go with your son, but she stays here and they said this forcibly without no choice or discussion in the matter. Then another tribe which belonged or Abu Salim I belong to, they said, You will not take this young boy this young boy selama he belongs to our tribe, Abu selama you are an old man you can live Abu Salim Radi Allahu Anhu had no choice but to leave Makkah and make the Hijra on his own. And in just a few moments, after the family, all being

00:04:08--> 00:04:27

together with all of their possessions Subhanallah they will all split up. And they will all in different places on Selma kept almost as a prisoner by her tribe, but by no means zoom. And the child selama, who was kept by the tribe of Abdullah Asad, Abdul Asad. And, of course, Abu selama was alone in Medina,

00:04:28--> 00:05:00

on selama, Subhan, Allah or the Allahu Anhu every day she used to go to the spot where they will all split up. And this went in for a very, very long time Subhanallah until one of the people who belonged to one of the sub tribes of the Miccosukee tribe, so I'm celibate in a very bad way. So he said to the tribe, this individual, why don't you just let her go to her husband? You can see that she's very poorly she's very depressed. He's very down. What do you gain from this? Just let her go until all

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

also Panatela soften their hearts. And eventually they agreed that Rome Celica selama could leave Mecca and go to El Medina.

00:05:08--> 00:05:45

But then the question is How could Omen selama leave her son, who is with the other tribe of Abdullah acid and leave her son? Yes, she can go to her husband, leaving her son was not an option. So they went to the tribe and spoke to them as well and said, We do not leave this young boy. Let him go with his mother and go on this journey. What do you benefit from keeping him here, away from his father and splitting up the family? Again, Alhamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala soften their hearts, open their hearts until they gave permission. So I'm selling model the Allahu anha took her son and whatever belongings they had, and they left Makkah.

00:05:46--> 00:06:22

Just as they left on the outskirts of Makkah. They bumped into an individual in an area called Atelier him. And his name was Ruth mandible Natalka in the eighth year was one of Nepal he embraced Islam and in fact, it is his tribe, who are the custodians of the key to the kava with Malik Nepal has said to Ansel, Emma and her son, where are you going? She replied, we are making the hedgerows and we are going to live in El Medina. He replied to her and said I will not allow you to travel alone. It is a two week journey in the hot desert for you to go alone. I will take you and when I will drop you off at an Medina I will return.

00:06:23--> 00:06:59

I'm selama Radi Allahu Anhu she said that reminded me of Paula even though he was a non Muslim at this time was a very noble man. And Alhamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala guided him later to the deen of Allah subhana wa Tada. So upon arrival in Medina or mandible of Allah, He left on Selma to go and meet with her family Alhamdulillah of the years being apart from Selma and Abu selama, and the son were reunited Allah hamdulillah and through the next couple of years, they had more children when he learned hand. As we know during this era, the life of the prophet muhammad sallallahu Sallam that there were a number of battles, and Abu selama participated in the Battle of whether, as he did

00:06:59--> 00:07:40

On selamat er the Allahu anha went to visit her and husband and was with him all the time. One of the companions came to him selama and said, Yeah, I'm selama I am going to teach you a dua that you should say Allahumma jedynie femal CBT work roughly hygro minha that Oh Allah, give me a reward during this calamity. Subhanallah her husband is in a very bad state, and grant me something which is better in the future. Allah subhanaw taala decreed that Abu selama Radi Allahu Anhu would pass away due to his

00:07:40--> 00:08:00

injuries. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam came and made a draft Abu selama by saying Allah Houma, fiddly ABI selama O Allah forgive Abu selama Subhan Allah, on Selma with four children was all alone in El Medina, what a sacrifice she had made. And Allah subhanaw taala was severely testing her.

00:08:02--> 00:08:18

It was the known custom not to leave a woman alone. Therefore Abu Bakr Siddiq cara de Allahu, and he came when he proposed to Ansel Emma, but she refused. And then Irma Radi Allahu Anhu proposed and likewise, she said no. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam proposed to own selama

00:08:20--> 00:08:28

I'm selling model the Allahu Anhu said, the O Messenger of Allah. I have three things that I want to mention to you. Number one is that I am a very jealous person.

00:08:29--> 00:09:09

And number two is that I'm very old in age. And number three is that I have many children. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, As for the first one concerning your jealousy, then I will make dua to Allah subhanaw taala, that he removes that as for your age, than I am older than you, and as for your children, than they are children that belong to Allah and his messenger SallAllahu sallam. Upon this, they married will Allah Hill hunt, and the title that she was given on selama she was now called Omen meaning the Mother of the Believers Subhanallah what a great title that Allah subhanaw taala gave to her. And if we look back at the DUA that she made, oh Allah grant me a reward

during this masiva and grant me something is better than in the future when she said, and who is better than Abu selama How can I possibly re marry somebody who is better than Abu selama? Allah subhanaw taala granted that she would have a husband better than Abu selama and that was our dear beloved Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now I'm setting him as we know, she was the last of the wives to pass away she passed away in the year 61 of the hijra, and has a number of famous advices that were given to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam throughout his life. So whatever matter my dear brothers and sisters, that we may be afflicted with a trial or a calamity, we make this dua to
