bla bla will hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh My dear brothers and sisters, and welcome to another episode of In the light of the Sahaba with us today inshallah Talia and this episode is a very famous companion who has the most beautiful story and one of the poets of the prophet Ali Salaam. His name is Ken Abdul Malik. If it is a story you've never heard before, then it is a story that kept himself he relates, and the story is found in elbow high. It is an amazing story Subhanallah cabra the Allahu Anhu he says that there was never a time that I was more well off than at the time of this particular incident. And when did this incident

00:00:54 --> 00:01:37

take place? It took place in the ninth year, maybe two years before the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam passed away. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam said to all of the companions, and 30,000 companions went on this journey north to go to give our feasable Allah Caberg nomadic he said, Never there was a time I was better off I had two rights. i Two camels that I could travel on, never in my life that I have two camels except at that time, he was fully prepared to go out with the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam. Although it was a very difficult time it was very hot. It was the time to harvest the dates maybe people would have to make a sacrifice concerning their wealth with man

00:01:37 --> 00:02:19

didn't offend Rhodiola when he donated so much, so many camels and so much of his wealth to the Muslims who didn't have anything kind of nomadic Rhodiola one, he said, I will get myself ready. I will prepare myself and I will leave tomorrow. The Muslims are leaving tomorrow. I'll get myself ready tomorrow. This is a story in which Khabib no Malika Radi Allahu and constantly delayed. He kept delaying the preparation of leaving with the Muslims. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he left with 30,000 of the Muslims and they left Medina Khabib no Malik Radi Allahu Allah. When looking around in Medina, he said, The only people I found left back in Medina were the women,

00:02:19 --> 00:02:44

the children, and the old companions who have reached older their age. And those individuals who are accused of being hypocrites. These were the only people that remained in El Medina. He said, I will get myself ready and he kept delaying kept procrastinating. Until SubhanAllah. I got to a stage where there was no way he was going to be able to catch up with the army of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam.

00:02:45 --> 00:03:01

When this happened, and that time had really gone too far. He felt a great regret. There was no intention that he had within himself not to go. He had a full intention of wanting to go, but because he kept delaying, delaying delaying, the time actually passed.

00:03:02 --> 00:03:10

The Prophet alayhi salam with the Companions, they arrived at their destination. When they arrived there. He looked around and he said, Has anybody seen cab?

00:03:11 --> 00:03:39

One of the people said, O Messenger of Allah. Something kept him back. And there's a saying in Arabic, he said, he stayed back looking at the beauty of his clothes. This was seen as a great insult. Where this was a time of chivalry and bravery for a person to accuse another person to stay back because he was looking at his clothes. He equated him with a person who was maybe very weak and not brave at all.

00:03:40 --> 00:04:21

The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam did not say anything, however, more or they have no job or no Rhodiola who and he looked at the man he said bit Sam could indeed you have said an evil thing. Oh messenger of Allah. codogno Malik is an individual who we only know good about. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam again, he remained silent. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remained away from El Medina for a long time. He stayed in the destination there for 20 days. And then he came back to El Medina. When news came that the Prophet alayhi salam was returning with 30,000 of the Muslims. Khabib nomadic Radi Allahu Anhu was thinking to help thinking to himself,

00:04:21 --> 00:04:54

What am I going to say to the messenger salAllahu alayhi wa sallam, many of the hypocrites they were preparing themselves to lie, to stand there and swear by a law, that they had an excuse, and they couldn't do this, and they couldn't do that kind of Khabib numedica the law and he said, I could have quite easily told a lie, and said something that was not true. And the messenger SallAllahu said, would have accepted that. So one by one these hypocrites. They went to the messenger Salallahu Alaihe Salam, and they swear by Allah that they had an excuse not to go. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:04:55 --> 00:05:00

Allah knows what is in your heart and may Allah forgive you and then cover the Allahu and he said

00:05:00 --> 00:05:12

If it was my turn to come to the messenger Elisa to Salam cab, he said, What are the Allahu Anhu as I approached the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and I saw him he was smiling the smile of an angry person.

00:05:13 --> 00:05:52

He said, O Messenger of Allah, that I could say something to you, I could lie, I could make an oath. That was not true. And that maybe you would forgive me. But I know that Allah subhanaw taala would know the truth. And maybe Allah subhanaw taala would expose me Khabib know Malik Radi Allahu and he was completely honest about his situation, and explained in full detail why he did not participate. He had full intention to participate, but he kept delaying he kept delaying. He kept delaying until it got beyond the time, and it was too late to do in the army. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to Kab I accept what you have said and you can go We will wait for Allah subhanaw taala

00:05:53 --> 00:05:56

to make clear, clear and no matter what is your situation

00:05:58 --> 00:06:02

Cardno Malika Radi Allahu Anhu left the Prophet alayhi wa sallam in a very sad way.

00:06:03 --> 00:06:49

The Prophet alayhi wa sallam said concerning three particular companions, one of them being Khabib, no Malik, no one should speak to these three individuals. Nobody should speak to them. Shake hands, give salam nothing, they should be abandoned. Completely. Khabib no Malika Radi Allahu Anhu says in the story in the writing of himself, he said, I was between my own people, my family members, my friends, however, I felt like the loneliest person in the world. And this went on for 40 days, he would give Salams to people. He would look at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from afar, hoping that the Prophet alayhi wa sallam would look at him. But the Prophet Muhammad Al Salam did

00:06:49 --> 00:06:49

not look at him.

00:06:51 --> 00:06:58

When he reached the 40th day, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the families the wife should stay away from her husband.

00:06:59 --> 00:07:02

Subhanallah this was very difficult for Khabib nomadic,

00:07:04 --> 00:07:48

even his own wife was to stay away from him. And even Allah subhanaw taala mentions the situation of Khabib nomadic in the Quran in surah tilbyr where Allah subhanaw taala describes the situation and the feelings that he had. He it is said that is though that the whole world the dunya was crushing him. He did not know where to go. He felt so pressurized and so sad about the situation. He was waiting for Allah subhanaw taala to make clear on what was the future for him until he reached the 50th day 50 days had passed that Khabib nomadic Rhodiola who had not spoken to anybody and everybody else was ignoring him. And he was sitting after Salat al Fajr he was sitting on the roof of his

00:07:48 --> 00:08:38

home. Then in the distance, a man came running towards him saying yeah, cab Oh cab. Somebody was speaking to him. Subhanallah what had happened, what changed? This individual who is from his family, and said that Allah subhanaw taala had revealed Quran concerning your situation and the other two as well. The called thurb Allahu Alikum. That Allah subhanaw taala has forgiven you all COVID know Malik Radi Allahu Allah could not believe what had happened. Allah subhanaw taala revealed Quran concerning my situation. Kava Radi Allahu Anhu immediately stood up, and he went to the masjid of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When he walked in, he saw the Companions one

00:08:38 --> 00:09:21

by one, looking at him and smiling Subhanallah then he looked to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he smiled the messenger Aliso Salam, the Prophet Muhammad Ali Salam, likewise, smiled back at him. This was a feeling that Khabib no Malika Radi Allahu Anhu that he was waiting for. He had never felt so happy Subhanallah And Alhamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala forgave Khabib nomadic and the other two companions that were with him. Now what do we take from this story? My dear brothers and sisters, we take from this story, that no matter what you have done, no matter what you have said, as Allah subhanaw taala says here are you 100 Xena, Allah, Oh, you who have believed

00:09:21 --> 00:09:59

faith Allah will call them aside your pain and be with the truthful people be truthful, stand up for the truth, that as Muslims regardless of the situation, even if it means incriminating my own self, I will always say the truth. Why? Because even though I may say something, and I'm able to deceive the person who is sitting in front of me, I can never deceive Allah subhanaw taala I can never get away from being held accountable from what I have said and what I have done when I face on loss or panna cotta. And even though Khabib nomadic Rhodiola one was given a go

00:10:00 --> 00:10:42

All the opportunity to lie to make an oath that the Prophet alayhi salam was making dua saying, Oh ALLAH forgive these people who made excuses not to go, but they were known to be from the mafia clean. They were known to be from the hypocrites. But as we know that Khabib nomadic LDLR had a beautiful character, there was no way that he was going to lie to the messenger SallAllahu wasallam there was no way he was going to say something like this. What he said, was completely the truth. And Allah subhanaw taala absolved him of the issue concerning him, in fact, subhanAllah until this day, in Surah tilbyr We recite verses talking about what had happened to Khabib nomadic What an

00:10:43 --> 00:11:22

honor was given to caribou Malika Radi Allahu Anhu in that Quran was revealed concerning his situation. My dear brothers and sisters, first and foremost we are truthful to Allah subhanaw taala and then we are truthful to every single person that we come in contact with. And with this, you will find that Allah subhanaw taala will bless you, that Allah subhanaw taala will make things easy for you. And those people that lie that only those people will find that difficulty comes one after the other. So I asked Allah subhanaw taala to allow us to follow the example of Khabib nomadic or the Allah Who and and I asked Allah subhanaw taala he allows us to be truthful people and that he

00:11:22 --> 00:11:31

protects us from those people who fall into an effort hypocrisy and lies Allahumma Amin BarakAllahu li Walakum wa salaamu alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
