Hello hello Nana Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam what are the different NBA he will see you didn't want Selena either early he was softly he is remain open bad indeed will praise you to Allah. The Lord of the Worlds made the peace and blessings be upon his file messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam.
Now moving on,
after explaining the situation what it was like
in the sixth century,
according to the Gregorian calendar,
that the world was pretty much full of darkness and oppression and wasn't really
going in any beneficial direction.
Mankind was essentially caving upon itself,
in that they were following guidance and following ways other than what Allah subhanaw taala gave to them and it is the nature that is the nature of things that if a person doesn't follow the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala if a person doesn't follow the revelation of Allah subhanaw taala, then you find that the people will eventually implode, the societies will break down. And there'll be many problems, many illnesses and vices that occur in that society. And this happened pretty much on a global level.
Now under be sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam whom, Allah subhanaw taala, to chose to be for them, and maybe even to be the seal of the prophets, that Allah subhanaw taala chose him from the west of people from the best of tribes, from the best two families. And as we know that Ibrahim alayhi salam, being able and be the father of the prophets, his two sons, likewise two prophets is my Al and his Hawk Ali, he must tell him that all prophets that came after Ibrahim SLM came through his lineage, for the reason it's called the father of the prophets. Now the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came through the lineage of Ismail Ali Salam.
Most of the prophets that all of them came through, is how Allah SLM the son of Ibrahim
and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam informed us in a hadith which is in Sahih, Muslim in that the prophet Elijah have said very indeed Allah azza wa jal chose Ismail al from the children of Ibrahim
and Kenan from the children of Israel, and Quraysh from Kenya, Ghana, and the children of Hashem bento Hashem from the Quraysh and chose me from bento Hashem
Imam Al Bukhari Rahim Allah Allah mentioned the lineage the name of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam.
And he is Mr. Carson, the cornea of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Mohammed Ibrahim Abdullah Ibn Abdul Muttalib new Hisham Ibn Abdul Manaf, technocracy ignore Keylab ignore ignore can't ignore loi Hypno Holly but never heard of nomadic, ignoble Ibuki, Nana ignore visa Hoceima economic recovery, India's mobile immune izhar Abram ad abna even add an end, this was the lineage of Rasulullah Salallahu Salam, and as if no pain, famous scholar, he said that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam was a literary agent and Adnan is one known and agreed upon.
And there was no disagreement whatsoever concerning that. But that what goes beyond that, then, then some of the scholars
have a difference of opinion concerning some of the means. But there was a unanimous consensus and agreement that adenan was from the direct lineage of, of Ismail Ali, he said, this was mentioned in the original claim book that I had.
So this was whom the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam would try became from Bengal Hashem, and battle Hirsch him from the Quraysh. So he was from a high lineage.
And the fact that he sallallahu alayhi wa salam had such a high status not just from who he was the tribe that he came from, from the people that he came from, and then going back all the way through to the prophets, that Allah subhanaw taala chose indeed, the best individual.
as for his
himself as he SallAllahu Addison said, I am as
Ibrahim Ali SLM made dua for and likewise ASA la Salam supplicated for the reverses that you find in the Quran, where both
Ibrahim Ali Salam supplicated to, to Allah as of May do and that Allah azza wa jal Reyes amongst the people and be a prophet from amongst their own selves. So if you go to Surah Al Baqarah in verse 129, the DARIAH the supplication of Ibrahim not a banner whereby fi himolla sola, Min homea through Ali, take away your Unley Muhammad kita but will Hekima will use a key him
in Nick until ISIS will hiking oh Lord sent amongst them a messenger. This was the Prime Minister making dua for those messenger to come for the future.
Our solar minimum that he will be a messenger from their own selves, yet to ally him, tick, that he would recite to them the verses while you are living Mohammed Al Kitab al Hikmah, and that he would teach them the book, and he would teach them wisdom. While he was a key human that he would purify them, Sanctify them in Africa until Aziz will Hakeem Indeed you are the Almighty, to all wise, likewise, Asa Elisa to Salam in Surah to Soph, in sort of soft that he
informed us gave us the glad tidings of a prophet
that will come after him. When Allah subhanaw taala says, what is called an essential no Maria Maria Burnie is the law eel. And when is the son of Maria Maria sallam said to Bani Israel in the rasuna loi elago that indeed, I am a messenger to you more subdeacon lima bean ad that I'm a messenger on to confirming the Torah that came before me, the medina de minute Torah, I came to confirm the Torah that was given to Musa Elisa then previous. One more, mashallah, and also one who's going to give you the glad tidings warm over Shira miracoli team in this
and I'm giving you the glad tidings of a messenger who is to come after Me, who, whose name is Muhammad. And as we know, this is one of the names of the way allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
so these were two these are two evidences you find in the Quran surah to soften verse number six and the previous verses with a locker where the prophets are named to them mentioned the coming and this application in general of the sending of a messenger to to the people. And Allah subhanaw taala answered this application of Ibrahim in that he sent to the Prophet Mohammed Salah and we send them
to the people of Makkah and to mankind.
the lineage of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam is mentioned in no pain says that the lineage of the Prophet sallallahu is all the way to Adam, was all through marriage, each
step of the way through the lineage, every person was married. So there was no one who was within that lineage of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, where there was any form of haram every single person was involved in a permissible Halal marriage. This shows again,
the purity of lineage of an OB Allah Muhammad Sallallahu anuario sellers.
the parents of Rasul Allah salAllahu Alaihe Salam.
Abdul Muttalib, who was the one of the Ashraf of Makkah, had 10 sons.
And one of those sons whose name was Abdullah
he was the father of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam and Abdullah are married to a woman whose name is Amina been to
abdomen Earth Akela, who's also from a noble tribe, noble lineage.
Abdullah and Amina, they were married, and it is noted commonly that the father of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away
just before the birth
of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu and himself
and they said he was buried close to it when in Medina
amongst some of his relations from Ben on the job, ban on a job
that is from his his mother's side because it's from his mother's side and they originally from El Medina
And the Prophet sallallahu innocents father side was from from Makkah.
So, it is said that
Abdullah who was the father of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam used to go on trade, trade journeys for, for business for business purposes. And then on one occasion upon returning from Hashem, that he became ill, and that he died there and
was buried in a Medina.
So then he was born as a teen, that he was born as an orphan.
And what we do know is that the NABI sallallahu alayhi salam was born on a Monday your morning evening.
However, concerning the specific date, there are some differences of opinion concerning this, whether it was the 12th of
a Ruby and a word, or whether in fact was the ninth or the 10th, there's a number of opinions and we're unable to wallow to them to categorically say that it was this day and not any other day. We don't have any direct study, explicit proof for that. However, we do know that it was Mullah who couldn't the opinions at least, were around those dates, maybe between the eighth and the 12.
And as we mentioned earlier, that he was he was born during the year of Anfield, I will feel the heat of the of the elephant.
Now, it was common practice at the time, that with the children with the babies, that they would be sent out with
wet nurses that they would be given some money to look after the small children. So they will be taken out of the main part of the city so that they could grow up outside. And this would be for a number of reasons. This was to protect them from illnesses. I mean, I managed to protect them from illnesses because in the main city, you had many people come to visit Makkah from all different places with different animals and different things to buy and sell. And this may cause a danger to the youngsters. It's not like it is now for example, that we have medicines and we have all types of you know, occupations to protect us from Bethenny later either from these endless it wasn't like
that, you know, mortality rate was quite high due to illnesses. So therefore these to take precautions, and they would many times send the small babies Atwal to the
outskirts of the, of the of the city or the town that they were in to protect them.
And there were other reasons as well, that they would
enjoy, it wasn't just done for a couple of months, you might find it sooner for a number of years, at least once they would regularly visit their parents and the parents would visit them doesn't mean have no relationship with them. But this would be their place of residency if you'd like. So this was also there to ensure that they learned the language as well. And that they Arabic would be very, very good. Because in the city as well, they did they would you would have people who would come to Makkah, who is Arabic may be their first language, they may come from Sham they may come from Persia speaking other languages. So they wanted to ensure that they want to preserve the the Arabic
And also it was an opportunity for them to to learn different trades, looking after and herding sheep and camels and so on and so forth, which was good for them
at that young age. So the Prophet salallahu Salam himself had a number of witnesses who would look after him and from them as Amon Baraka, Al Habashi, who was in fact the female slave of his father. So she knew a number you Sallalahu anyway, loosen them from the time from he was born.
And she was there, or the Allah I'm her from the time when he actually passed away as well. So if you like
she's the person who may be new and maybe Salalah for the longest period of time.
From the time that he was born to the time that he had his insulin that he passed away.
There were also other nurses that he Sallallahu anzam had, like the WebVR, who was a female slave of Ebola have also been Xena been to be selama.
Often, Xena been to have the settlement narrated that I'm Habiba informed that once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was going to marry my sister, the daughter of Abu Sufyan surprised that she would want him to, you know to take another wife. Since that
run contrary contrary to the nature of women at the time, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and you would love that this thing would happen, she said, Indeed yes, I am not alone.
So but the person I would love to most share with me and goodness is my sister, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said that is not promised permissible for me, because it is not allowed for a man to marry two sisters at the same time, and she realizes that Verily We are told, we are told that you want to marry the daughter of Abu selama the prophesy some said the daughter of selama. She said, Yes, the prophesy some said Had she not been my Habiba. i The daughter of my wife, the one that was more than one of the men in my household, she would still not be lawful for me. So there are two reasons why it was not lawful for him to marry her. She is the daughter of my brother
through breastfeeding. So there was issues when you would breastfeed that you cannot
marry with them because they become like a relation.
So also Halima Assadi, Halima been to Harris. A Saturday, he was also one of the witnesses of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa, and he was in them. And it would it would be is that these women offering the services of looking after the children would
look around to find a child to take care of, and most of the children that they had been taken. Now our beloved Nabi SallAllahu, himself wasn't necessarily somebody which was who was
of high value to you can say that, because he was an orphan,
where all other families were their mothers and fathers their in payments. That was that was normal, and I wouldn't have any issues in that, but here it is your team. It's not something that people would, you know, be from the first people to look for. So and maybe sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was one of the last children, if you like,
the particular time the children would go away.
What wasn't taken, she came along Halima, or the talent that came and found this child. And the she took him now honey Meridiana Halima, Radha,
she came, and she wasn't even herself. In a good situation. She wasn't very well off. And she was with her husband, and also that they, you know, the the, whatever wealth that he didn't have, like any livestock that they had, was weak,
and didn't produce much benefit for them. So this was whatever income that they could get. And they took the baby, Muhammad Sallallahu and send them and it served as a great source of baraka for them. Because when they took an obese Allahu animal syndrome, they found that she was able to feed
the prophesy breastfeeding, and there was, wasn't an any shortage. She also found that the
livestock that they had, the camel, which was maybe old, wasn't giving as milk as it used to, was now full with milk. And this was something that was strange for them. They couldn't they didn't really have any answers to what was happening, not realizing, of course,
that they had taken wisdom.
They recognize no doubt that this is a blessing boy, because after that, they found the goodness and increased by the permission of Allah subhanaw taala the sheep that they had, they returned with the with milk, and so many benefits with them.
So these were
some of these witnesses of the Prophet sallallahu
now there's an important story that occurred when the Prophet sallallahu anyway was sending them
was very small.
And the story is narrated by Abuja, Isla in his book and much more as Miss also mentioned in many Sierra books, that the Prophet salallahu anywhere we send them
wild very, very young, that he would go and he would play with the children at this very small village.
And they stated that newbies are seldom when he grew up, he grew up different from the way that other children that they grew up. He is narrated that he grew in a single day the normal growth of an entire year of another child.
And when he was around two years old,
that he they took him back to Makkah. And they, they said by Allah as long as we are able to keep him we will never apart from him. Halima decided that they wanted to keep him for as long as they possibly could. Because by Allah we have never seen a boy who was more blessed than he and we fear upon him, you know, the plagues and the difficulties and the diseases that may occur in MCC. So they implored and they asked if they
Keep Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with themselves. So they will give him the given permission to take an abuse or send them back to them with them outside, on the outskirts of outside of Macau.
it narrates that they took him back. And they stayed with us for another three or four months, while his brother and sister a through through suckling, through breastfeeding, that they were playing behind the houses, amongst some of the livestock, and then suddenly his brother, when I say his brother, the brother, the brother, the prophets, I send them through breastfeeding. That's the point here, came back, rushing into the house, saying that two men wearing white garments came to him, took him made him lie down, and that they opened up his stomach or his chest. So then they went there. And then when we reached him, we found him to be standing up. And the color of his face that
When we when he saw us, he raced towards us trying both Halima and her husband that they embraced him and held him very closely and said, what has happened, what, what happened. And he said, two men came to me, and they made me lie down and they opened my my stomach, and put something in it, and returned it, as it was before.
The father of Halima said, By Allah, I'm sure that this boy has become afflicted with some illness or some ailment, let us return him, to his family that is returned to the family and give him back before something we fear may happen to him is not normal, that small child will say something like this, I've been opened up, somebody's been taken out and returned to me. This is very strange, and we fear something may happen in the future. So they wanted to return him. So we took him back to his mother. And upon seeing us, they reproached us for what we were doing and what they said, Why have you brought him back before the time that we have agreed with you?
And they said, they didn't really want to say anything. They said nothing is the matter. But Allah has decreed that we have come to the end of the time with him and we turn him to you.
So they did not.
Mother didn't want to the mother of Rasul losses and didn't want to just allow them just to, you know, just to return him now without any just or fair reason what happened.
So she said, Then, by Allah,
after the story was told to her, she said, is not possible to happen.
This is not something that was no affliction, or Madness has come to me to my son, indeed, my son has a great purpose ahead of him.
And she said that by Allah, I never carried a load being pregnant, that was lighter and easier upon me than he was. So she described the pregnancy of the Prophet sallallahu. I said something very easy for her.
she herself, had an inclination that this wasn't something normal. And in fact, we have another Hadith, which is narrated by NSF in America, the Allahu Anhu. That said that while the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was playing with some of the boys, Gibreel and SLM came to him, and put him on the ground, and spit open him and revealing his heart
Gibreel or s&m removed a blood clot from it, and said, this is the portion of a shaytaan. And then the heart was washed with Zims and water in a basin, made over the head made of gold. He then joined his heart together, returned it into its place, and then the children upon seeing some of the things that happened rushed to the the mothers.
And they said, Verily, Mohammed has been killed. And then they went to him, and then ending part of the story, as I mentioned to you.
Then continued that they saw Him they saw his face face color with changed. And
then they eventually returned, returned him, and I said, No Mulligan on the alarm. I said, I used to see the marks of the stitching that was on his chest. I saw these marks over the line. And as he said that, so we know that it happened. It's not a fairy tale. It's not something that, you know, we believe that 100% This is what happened. And
you say, Well, how can that happen? If Allah subhanaw taala decreed that matter controlled matter to happen by Allah's permission? Of course, it can happen without any without any doubt.
So, the Prophet sallallahu, ISON was returned to his mother
and remained with her until he was about six years old.
Like her husband before that, that she died, actually, she passed away on a journey.
She had traveled to see some of her relatives from an ajar tribe.
And the purpose of her visit was to show them the Prophet Muhammad Ali's Absalom. Bear in mind.
We are mentioning the prophets of Allah Who are some of the very young age here. He is not a prophet at the moment. We know that a Naboo he was chosen as the Prophet alayhi salam at the age of 14, up until that he's not a me and maybe or prophet, let that be known. Okay.
mother of Rasulullah sallallahu, and send them that she passed away when he was at the age of six.
So the Prophet Elisha never knew his father grew up without a father,
and was under the custody of his mother and stayed with her for
six years until the Chi then she passed away. And she passed away in a place called Ebola, which is an area between Makkah and Medina and she's married, and she wasn't married.
Then after that, from the age of six, he was given
given to his grandfather, Abdul Muttalib.
So, it's quite an emotional and stressful time, lots of change to such a young person.
And when you look at the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it's important for us to not just you know, to see a historical kind of
point by point, kind of chronological view of what happened of events, but rather a times fast, just ponder over how Allah subhanaw taala was preparing an individual, okay? And if you see the stories of the other prophets, Elisa, Elisa them in any depth, in any great detail, you will see how Allah subhanaw taala prepared them, prepared them for, for a great mission for a great and
a treacherous at times journey through their lives, difficulties and trials and tribulations. So the Prophet alayhi salam had at such a young age, gone through and missed out on you know, having a father figure will father
and then at the age of six losing his mother, this will emotionally affected him.
So, he was then given custody was custody rather was given to his grandfather, Abdul Muttalib.
Abdulmutallab loved and Nabil SallAllahu is and remember, Abdullah Matata was the Father
by default if his grandfather is the father of his father Abdullah but just so you remember the sequence and and who is who. So Abdullah was one of the 10 Sons of Abdullah Abdulmalik.
So Abdul Muttalib used to love
the Prophet salallahu animus and at times he said even preferred him, the grandson even sometimes over his own sons. So
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam had this strong and close relationship with his grandfather.
Now, Abdul Muttalib would at times send the Prophet Mohammed Salah on little jobs,
on on errands, delivering messages and would teach him and give him responsibility because he saw that in him.
At times, he would send him out sometimes Subhanallah, the in between six, seven and eight exist. He stayed with Abdullah Matala for two years, which we're going to explain now. So he saw that he had
great responsibility quite mature for his age. So he would give him these responsibilities. This again shows us what they were things in the prophet Mohamed Salah syndrome, which maybe other children didn't have at that time of maturity, and being the given the ability to take responsibility and carry out
duties that are given to him. You know, maybe now if you like children are six or seven and eight. You wouldn't even dream of doing such things. But and the beasts are seldom, as we mentioned, would or did, you know grow up and was very mature from a very young age.
after two years of his guardianship,
that he died
and then it was ordered that another son of Abdul Muttalib who was our toilet
should take the responsibility of an Ibiza license.
So but a by the age of eight
He had physically lost two beloved people to him, his own mother and his grandfather, his father, he never knew,
like his father he never knew. So just as you know, the child is getting their mind getting attached to somebody. Because the first you know, couple of years of the child, you know, they kind of maybe take to anyone. And but then when they start to build their emotions and start to build their feelings, you know, four, five and six, that's when he lost his mother.
And then he was given responsibility to Abdul Muttalib. Again, the age you start to build a relationship with somebody, and then that person dies. And then he's given, or he goes to his uncle, and the pilot.
Now, he would spend the majority intimo, of course, he becomes an adult, he doesn't need a guardian. But his time spent with Obi live in terms of a father figure, if you like his his, this is the longest relationship he will have with a father figure in his life, and will bind him
if you like this
from the age of eight, all the way up until he is approached, chosen as a prophet. So it's another 32 years. And then when the NSSM was chosen, and whatnot, 10 years, so you're looking about 42 years. 42 is a very close relationship with his, with his uncle. And when we get to that particular part of the CLI, you will then appreciate and understand the difficulty that the Prophet raises and went through when that his uncle Abu Talib, who had done so much for him, passed away.
So Allah subhanaw taala decreed that the messenger Muhammad Ali Salam would be raised as a teen as an orphan.
So the Prophet sallallahu Isom didn't have two parents who would spoil him with riches and make everything soft and easy for his upbringing. He went through some difficulties and faced many calamities that, if any, one of us would face that, once in our lives at that age would be an emotional
difficulty enough, but the fact that he's so so alone went through from the age of six and in the age of eight and be passed on to another person to another person shows the great hardship that he went through. So whenever he SallAllahu, Addison would meet people come across people who had lost members of their families, members of their family, that he would what he would be able to understand their feelings, he would be able to have a connection with those people. So whenever they people approached him and spoke about the loss of family members. He and so I'm speaking from experience, and he was speaking from not an experience in that, you know, a family member may pass
away from the closest two people, the closest of people that he had built a relationship with have had passed away from a very young age. So again, it goes back to how Allah subhanaw taala prepared
the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam in dealing with people in the future
when he was going to meet all different types of people in all different types of situations, with all different types of questions and on and difficulties that they were going through here, let's assume had experienced many of those things so he was able to connect with them. And of course, there was the trophy from Allah subhanaw taala.
So, the fact that he had this
no father around he himself had to be you know, bring about some independence in his life as well.
And not to necessarily do you know, rely on other people, but you had to do things yourself. And this is a good therapy as well. This is good upbringing that you can have. That not always you're going to rely on other people to do things that after Allah subhanaw taala that you will do things yourselves. If you can do it yourself then you do it. Even if it is something very very small. Okay, let's say you know,
you're at home or that there's something you know on the sofa and it's just, you should do it yourself. Okay, do it yourself. Even though you know you've got children or you're somebody that do things yourself, have that habit in yourself. And this brings about
good traits within you. That if you are needed, if you a test comes to you and you really need to after our last round Tyler and that's the most important thing is that you will rely on strengthening knew and that you are able to do things yourself
My time up
okay, well, it's timely ending anyway because I think we're going to pay now be the Nantahala. So yes, yeah, that's gonna be good. So we'll stop here Schelotto and then we'll start to talk about the stage where the Prophet sallallahu and suddenly is now at the age of 10 or eight rather and upwards and how
how he would live with other planets and sharpen those SallAllahu Sallam a while ago. None of you know Muhammad early he was offering them some of them
