Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu lillah

00:00:11--> 00:00:15

wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah. While early he was off and be here, Jemaine

00:00:17--> 00:00:22

continue continuing with the noble CRO of our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:00:24--> 00:00:25

We're still at the stage where

00:00:27--> 00:00:29

he is Elisa so that my child.

00:00:30--> 00:00:33

And as we mentioned previously that prophethood

00:00:35--> 00:00:46

hasn't been given to him at this stage. That's only when he becomes over the age of 14. That revelation is sent to him by Allah subhanaw taala. Up until then, he is a boy.

00:00:47--> 00:00:52

Like any other boy, if you'd like, although we did mention some special qualities that Allah subhanaw taala gave to him.

00:00:54--> 00:01:14

Now, just very quick recap that he was born an orphan and was brought up by his mother up until the age of six, and then his mother passed away. And then he was looked after by his grandfather, Abdul Muttalib. I'm not sure we mentioned that is up to the quarterback who named him, Muhammad.

00:01:16--> 00:01:23

Now, I don't think we did mention anyhow, we're mentioning now that it is his grandfather, Abdul Muttalib is the one who named him Muhammad. He who is praised

00:01:24--> 00:01:38

and he remained with him for about two years. And then he passed away. And then he went under the guardianship of his uncle Abu Talib was one of the sons of Abdullah Muttalib.

00:01:39--> 00:01:52

Now, just because they were and they were from noble lineage, that doesn't guarantee that they were rich doesn't guarantee that they had lots of money.

00:01:54--> 00:01:56

In fact, it doesn't guarantee financial stability.

00:01:57--> 00:01:58


00:01:59--> 00:02:06

I'm a polyp, who was like a businessman had good times and had some not so good times.

00:02:07--> 00:02:22

Now, what the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam used to do for Barley was small jobs. And a good part of his work actually was to be a raw ale Hunnam was to be one who looked after sheep like a shepherd.

00:02:23--> 00:02:36

Now, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam worked as a shepherd and it was you know, in your authentic hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, O Allah said that every prophet, that Allah subhanaw taala, sent, herded sheep at one time in their lives.

00:02:38--> 00:02:47

And he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked, even you O Messenger of Allah, he replied, Yes, I heard them upon a karate,

00:02:48--> 00:02:55

a karate it has two potential meanings. The first meaning it is either the name of a place

00:02:56--> 00:03:04

I used to hurt them upon carrot upon a place called carrot or I used to herd the sheep of one corroborate what was

00:03:05--> 00:03:10

a portion on a mound of a DNR or there have the payment that you used to receive.

00:03:12--> 00:03:42

So he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to work as a shepherd. And this allowed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to work on his own peacefully and quietly, to enjoy the we can say the beauty of the desert, it has it has its harsh side, yes, the dryness and the heat. But it also has other qualities that if you are able to experience that there is great beauty in that in seeing the creation and the wonders of what Allah subhanaw taala has created.

00:03:43--> 00:03:48

Now many of the scholars that they talk about the fact that that the Prophet alayhi wa salam was a shepherd.

00:03:49--> 00:03:52

And they mentioned that there were a number of great

00:03:53--> 00:04:12

benefits, or those matters that would affect or mold and help the character of a particular individual. Now bearing in mind, that the Prophet sallallahu Anisomycin at this stage is still very young, but was able to do such

00:04:15--> 00:04:17

an important response to your response in a

00:04:18--> 00:04:20

responsible job and important job.

00:04:21--> 00:04:24

So number one here lesson would learn patients would learn somebody

00:04:25--> 00:04:47

to be a shepherd, you need patience. Since that, you know, you leave the morning in the morning time you leave and then you stay out while the sheep they graze, they do whatever they do, and then you bring them back in the evening is not something that you finish in half an hour or 45 minutes. You have to take them out, you know, take them to the place where they can find a place to graze

00:04:49--> 00:05:00

and then you bring them back. So you need patience and it brings about patience within you. And every great leader needs to be patient. A person has respond

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

sibility over people that they need to be patient. And as with human beings,

00:05:07--> 00:05:14

sheep in their own way, have their own personalities, so that you get to know the different types of sheep.

00:05:15--> 00:05:30

Likewise, and if you can do that Subhanallah make differentiations between sheep, then I guess it would be far easier than for you to then start differentiating between human beings who have far more, you know, greater ability to express themselves.

00:05:32--> 00:05:36

So the Prophet alayhi wa sallam learned a great deal of patience, being a shepherd,

00:05:38--> 00:06:03

bearing in mind as well, that it is very hot. So you had to work outside, it wasn't that you had, you know, air conditioned kind of tents or mu trucks or anything like that, no, you were there, you'd have to find your own shade, under a tree or small rock or whatever it would be. So you need to be patient concerning a shepherd, the life of a shepherd was something that was quite difficult wasn't easy.

00:06:05--> 00:06:10

It also will teach you 12 It will do it will teach you to be humble and humbleness.

00:06:11--> 00:06:12


00:06:14--> 00:06:24

this is demonstrated in that the needs of the sheep, some of them would climb in areas and then they may get stuck, seniors to go help them we need to be compassionate.

00:06:25--> 00:06:31

You know, for example, a certain seasons they may be giving birth, you need to help them give birth, the female sheep

00:06:32--> 00:06:33


00:06:34--> 00:06:44

you have to protect them you have to have to guard them from predators. So you have to show mercy, compassion and humbleness towards this animal.

00:06:45--> 00:06:57

The Prophet sallallahu Anisimova formed us in Hadith in Sahih Muslim that any, anyone who has an atom's weight of pride of Kibera within the club within the heart, they will not enter the agenda.

00:06:59--> 00:07:21

And then, a man he said to the Prophet salallahu anisum After saying this, but indeed a man likes to have good clothing, likes to look nice to have good shoes is that pride? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in Allah had familia Hebrew, German, that that is beauty and Allah subhanaw taala loves beauty. Oh, Allah azza wa jal is beautiful, and loves beauty.

00:07:23--> 00:07:34

Pride is denying the truth and looking down upon people. That's the reality of pride. And that's what is not praiseworthy. And as a hadith in Sahih, Muslim,

00:07:35--> 00:07:44

another quality that we bring on a person is bravery. The fact that here it is that the Prophet alayhi salam is on his own, out in,

00:07:45--> 00:07:48

in the wilderness, okay, on his own.

00:07:49--> 00:07:57

There's all types of maybe predatory animals, maybe even thieves, you know, he would have to have some bravery with himself and get used to that situation.

00:07:59--> 00:08:14

And occasion which is also mentioned Sahih Muslim that the Sahaba they align home, that they were awoken by a great noise at nighttime, and noise that they had never heard before. And they all came out of their homes and they were discussing with one another, who's going to investigate the sound.

00:08:15--> 00:08:28

When they agree that some of them were going to go into the direction of where that sound was. They found a Nabi sallallahu alayhi salam returning on his own, and saying that there was nothing to worry about. So he was the bravest of people salAllahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:08:30--> 00:08:36

Also, it will bring about the love of earning one's living

00:08:38--> 00:08:41

a lawful living, that you will go and that you will do that yourself.

00:08:43--> 00:08:57

And the most honorable way to live is to eat from what one earns through halal and lawful earnings and lawful work. That that person if person, if the best that they can, is to be independent from other people that they do that themselves.

00:08:58--> 00:09:24

And as I mentioned before, maybe in this lesson, or the set of lessons previously, that if you can do things yourself, I did mention it, you should do them yourself. Don't rely on other people. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to give you the ability to do that, and do it yourself from the smallest of things to the biggest of things, but do it yourself, be reliant on what Allah azza wa jal has given you in terms of strength and ability. Don't be a person who is always asking other people to do things.

00:09:25--> 00:09:30

And if we all have that attitude, you will find the best the blessings and the benefit in that

00:09:31--> 00:10:00

a self sufficient man is dignified in the eyes of others. A person who's always asking a person who's always putting their hand out, this is something which maybe will lower the status of that the status of that person. Whatever Allah subhanaw taala has written for you will come to you. No one can ever take that away from you, before you leave this dunya whatsoever. Whatever Allah azza wa jal has decreed for you to happen to you for you to receive that will never before they will never fall short. That will

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

Always what Allah as well as decreed for you that will happen.

00:10:06--> 00:10:06


00:10:09--> 00:10:10

people who,

00:10:12--> 00:10:23

who have tried to have arrogance who have wealth, at times view everybody else like that. Because if a person isn't careful with wealth, it affects them in a negative way.

00:10:25--> 00:10:41

Either they may become proud, they may become arrogant, they will not understand the lives and understand the situations of other people. They just simply won't. And they will just understand everybody else just through their own situation become oblivious to it.

00:10:42--> 00:10:46

And at times pass judgment on other people. For example,

00:10:47--> 00:10:53

the story of frown, who believed himself to be an 11 year than biller that he believed

00:10:54--> 00:11:10

the position that he had, and his love for this dunya and its pleasures, it fully dominated the way that he thought it dominated the way that he viewed everybody. And when Musa alayhis salam, when he came to him and said, You need to free but it is slightly let them go.

00:11:12--> 00:11:21

They're no longer to be anything not to be slaves anymore. He understood that maybe that is power you want, you want full time you want to be in charge.

00:11:23--> 00:11:25

Likewise, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam came to the Quraysh

00:11:27--> 00:11:31

came with them with towhead the oneness to worship Allah subhanaw taala alone

00:11:33--> 00:11:58

that they said okay, well, you know, maybe it's position you want maybe it's money that you want, maybe it's, you know, castles or is this what you want, because this is how they understood things, not realizing that there are people who are sincere, who are chosen by Allah subhanaw taala to deliver a message which is not connected in terms of reward, nothing to do with this dunya

00:12:01--> 00:12:31

and how many times that you read in the Quran that the messengers and prophets Allah He masala to set him would respond to their people? Yeah, call me let us hola como la de Maria, that oh my people, I am not asking for any wealth for what I do. In Algeria. Allah, Allah Allah, my reward is with Allah subhanaw taala I'm just delivering a message. I'm delivering a message that has been given to me to deliver to you. It's got nothing to do with the raw hem dinars pounds dollars, nothing to do with them.

00:12:32--> 00:12:37

However, there are people who may not understand that by because of what they have indulged themselves in.

00:12:40--> 00:12:42

This is a very well known and beautiful Hadith

00:12:43--> 00:12:46

in Sahih al Bukhari that,

00:12:47--> 00:13:02

that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, no one has ever eaten better food than which he eats from what he works at with his hand. And Verily the Prophet of Allah azza wa jal, Dawood, la salaam would eat from the work of his own hand.

00:13:04--> 00:13:08

So when a person gains self sufficiency

00:13:09--> 00:13:45

now understand what I mean by self sufficiency, is that they are completely reliant on Allah subhanaw taala they're not relying on the Hulk, they're not relying on the creation, self sufficiency doesn't mean that does me, myself and I and I don't care about anything else. And I reject Eliza No, we're talking about a person who's completely reliant on Allah subhanaw taala from the morning to the evening, and they have hope in Allah subhanaw taala that Allah azza wa jal will return their soul in the morning, that they have another day to worship Allah subhanaw taala these are the best of people that they truly return and turn to Allah subhanaw taala in all circumstances.

00:13:47--> 00:14:03

So there's the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam who went through this nurturing looking after Subhanallah sheep, that he was able to add so many beautiful qualities, to his character SallAllahu anyone who sent them now,

00:14:04--> 00:14:05

this is one of the

00:14:07--> 00:14:12

important jobs that he would do for his uncle, that is the prophet Salla send them for his uncle, I will toilet.

00:14:15--> 00:14:55

So it wasn't an easy life. It wasn't a luxurious life, but it was a life of work. It was a life of striving. And this is bearing in mind what we have taken previously, that the life of a newbie SallAllahu it was something from one year to the next is a struggle. It is a struggle. But during the struggles and during these tests, and in particular, that the person who passes those becomes that much of a greater person and a better person. But Allah subhanaw taala when he tests you when he pushes you in certain matters in your life, it is not there to break you, but rather it is to strengthen you. It is there for you to come out on the other on the other side of that particular

00:14:55--> 00:15:00

for that test, that you become a stronger person and ultimately you will

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

Come a person who is closer to Allah subhanaw taala than you were previously.

00:15:05--> 00:15:39

So whatever test that comes to you what regardless of what form that test comes to you, at the end of it, are you a person who is closer to Allah subhanaw taala. And while you may say, Well, how do I judge? Am I closer to Allah? subhanaw taala Well, do you find yourself returning and calling to Allah subhanaw taala more? Are you more sincere in your supplication? You more sincere in your Salah? Are you more eager to give sadaqa charity, it's easier for you to you know, or within yourself want to fast more, and all the different types of worship that you can do.

00:15:40--> 00:15:45

Because you found that during this test, you found that, you know, people can't help me.

00:15:46--> 00:15:48

People can't help me in this test,

00:15:49--> 00:15:58

of course, that Allah azza wa jal may allow people to be a means of helping me, but the ultimate help it is Allah subhanaw taala So who the one who is testing you

00:15:59--> 00:16:04

are not going to for example, ask for LAN because he's not testing me.

00:16:06--> 00:16:13

Or if I'm going for a great difficulty, I'm not going to ask for learn so and so to help me know the one who's testing me is Allah subhanaw taala

00:16:15--> 00:16:18

and so I asked Allah subhanaw taala to make it easy for me at that particular time.

00:16:20--> 00:16:21

So this is an important

00:16:23--> 00:16:25

is important information for us to know

00:16:28--> 00:16:31

concerning the early life of an abuse Allah or anywhere else

00:16:36--> 00:16:45

Abu Talib also would take our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on business journeys as well. Because we said that we thought he was a businessman, he used to do trade.

00:16:47--> 00:16:52

And on one occasion, that a boy lib he took a Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, to Hashem.

00:16:53--> 00:16:59

And they would often take a particular route, and that they would pass a certain landmarks.

00:17:00--> 00:17:03

And there was a certain place that people will stop at like a monastery.

00:17:05--> 00:17:08

And there was a well known monkey that was whose name was Baba.

00:17:10--> 00:17:16

And, and B SallAllahu, nslm, about this time was, let's say, you know, 12, or 13 years old.

00:17:17--> 00:17:40

So this was an opportunity for the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, to go on a journey to experience you know, different lifestyles, different people, and culture to some extent. Anyhow, upon stopping at this particular Monastery at this place, that abhaile, right, he came out and he greeted them. And this wasn't the ad that this wasn't the normal practice of Behera to come out and start greeting them.

00:17:41--> 00:17:42


00:17:43--> 00:17:52

he identified an Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam, this young boy. And he said, This person is a chief, as a responsibility

00:17:54--> 00:17:55

as a great responsibility of a man.

00:17:57--> 00:18:02

And this is a strange comment to make concerning a young 12 or 13 year old boy,

00:18:03--> 00:18:09

that this is a messenger of the lord of Al Amin, and all of that exists, this is a messenger, he has a great responsibility.

00:18:10--> 00:18:17

And while some of the quotes they said well, why am I unique, what would make you known or to say such a thing?

00:18:18--> 00:18:42

And he replied that when I overlooked this place, because where he resided overs, was on a higher plane and looked down upon whether people will be approaching. He said, that when as you were arriving, that every single tree and stone in the area fell down in sujood, as he passed by, under the unit perform frustration for anyone saving a beat or accept a profit.

00:18:43--> 00:18:50

And indeed, I know him from the seal of the prophet hood, or seal of prophethood. That result resembles like

00:18:51--> 00:18:54

a mark on his back just under his shoulder blade,

00:18:55--> 00:19:09

the size of a small egg, the size of a pigeon neck, it is stated in the chapter inside Muslim which describes the seal the mark of Prophethood on the back of an OB SallAllahu sallam said, I recognized him from that.

00:19:11--> 00:19:12


00:19:13--> 00:19:18

he invited them and they sat together and they began to speak.

00:19:19--> 00:19:28

And there was other marriages that that is said to have happened about the shading retreat, and the shading of other things over the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam

00:19:29--> 00:19:40

Behera told about toilet that he should take this boy Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam back to the his homeland. Don't continue on your journey take him back.

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

That is because that the of course they're going further north into the Byzantines Empire, the Romans, that they had their own scriptures, they had their own beliefs and they were under out looking out for a potential person who was going to claim prophethood and if that was happened, maybe it is the case that they would

00:20:00--> 00:20:00

Kill him.

00:20:01--> 00:20:06

So, as this was happening, some Roman soldiers they came into the area

00:20:07--> 00:20:15

and they said news has reached us that awaited profit is coming out during this month and every road has been blocked with God's

00:20:17--> 00:20:24

on the routes north. So we went we were sent on this particular route on this road to see what is happening.

00:20:25--> 00:20:44

And the blue highlight said to him said to them that suppose and if it is the case that Allah subhanaw taala once a matter to be fulfilled, is there anyone to stop that happening? And they replied, No, there's nothing to stop that. So they said, well just allow these people to be allowed these people to be and let them be.

00:20:45--> 00:20:48

So upon this and abuse, Allahu Anhu syndrome was taken aback.

00:20:50--> 00:21:01

So there's a couple of forward a couple of benefits concerning this incident, and that is that there were certain people at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who were not all followers of distorted scripture.

00:21:02--> 00:21:24

Not all of them were followers of distorted scripture from Allah, hoodoo and Asana, some of them had understandings of true teachings that had been passed to people as we will mention, maybe incoming lessons. What a particular no one had an understanding of the true Scripture, the true revelation that existed through the previous prophets and the last one being, reset at Esalen.

00:21:28--> 00:21:29

Okay, so this was another incident.

00:21:31--> 00:21:48

In doing the early life of a Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam, another incident that is documented. And here, the age of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is something around 20 years old, that there was the Battle of fish or fish or is,

00:21:49--> 00:21:53

is basically for immorality, wrong and wrongdoing.

00:21:54--> 00:22:02

And this was essentially but a battle or a war between the Kurdish and Kenan on one side, and he was in on the other.

00:22:03--> 00:22:12

And this was a settler of a set of wars that occurred over a period of about three years, there's a four battles within the space of about three years.

00:22:13--> 00:22:27

And there were many people killed in these battles. And eventually, there was a peace treaty that was agreed between the two sides, and that whichever side had suffered the most casualties would receive the blood money.

00:22:30--> 00:22:48

It is said that during this time that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam as a member of the Quraysh that he was given the responsibility, because he was present in this battle that he was his role was to collect the enemy's arrows and hand them over to his uncle's. So an active participant in this this battle

00:22:53--> 00:22:53

like why does that happen?

00:22:55--> 00:22:57

Clara Can I do that?

00:22:58--> 00:22:58


00:23:00--> 00:23:01

Another incident

00:23:02--> 00:23:04

is the for loan Alliance

00:23:07--> 00:23:13

or the health moto moto Yibin as an alliance has a number of names

00:23:15--> 00:23:18

and this is essentially an alliance that was formed

00:23:19--> 00:23:25

off after the Quraysh returned from the feature was

00:23:26--> 00:23:28

at the began when a man from zubaid

00:23:29--> 00:23:30

A man from Yemen

00:23:31--> 00:23:34

that he went to Makkah to sell his merchandise

00:23:35--> 00:23:42

and allow Cigna were ill purchased this this particular merchandise and refused to pay for it.

00:23:43--> 00:23:49

Okay, so there's a person from Yemen he came to sell his merchandise to a man from operation is more of an operation refused to pay for it.

00:23:51--> 00:23:58

So this man from zubaid pleaded with the Kurdish, the chieftains to help him but they refused. They want to get involved.

00:24:00--> 00:24:14

Because the one who purchased them the merchandise allows him to where it was, you know, as a noble person, he was, therefore a chief, you know, chieftain, therefore not to be opposed not to be questioned as it were. So this man from Miami didn't give up.

00:24:15--> 00:24:21

So he went out and stood beside the cab, and he began asking for help.

00:24:22--> 00:24:26

And he began asking from the descendants of welfare, one of the tribes

00:24:27--> 00:24:31

and he began rebuking them because they refused to help him.

00:24:36--> 00:24:40

So they refused, say, began asking their help. And

00:24:42--> 00:24:46

because of what he had been, how he had been wronged by one of the khoresh

00:24:48--> 00:24:55

as the way they've not done properly by the prophets uncle's, he stood up and said, Is there a person who's going to help this man

00:24:57--> 00:24:58

as a result of one of the

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

This individual is about his anger. A meeting was convened. A meeting was made in the house of Abdullah Banerjee and.

00:25:07--> 00:25:14

And there were a number of tribes that were present but no Hashem Mendoza Hora Beltane, even Nomura.

00:25:15--> 00:25:18

And this occurred in the month of al Qaeda.

00:25:20--> 00:25:23

And this was one of the sacred months.

00:25:24--> 00:25:31

And that they swore by Allah, that they would be as one hand in their support of any victim

00:25:32--> 00:25:34

against any wrongdoer.

00:25:35--> 00:25:44

So they went together to ask him to well, and they seized the merchandise they had wrongfully taken because they didn't pay for it. And they returned it to the rightful owner.

00:25:45--> 00:25:56

And the court actually referred to what happened at this particular time as the balloon Alliance, football for the word for them, meaning good, extra Baraka, goodness,

00:25:59--> 00:26:45

nobility, superiority of virtue, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was present within this particular alliance. And he said, sal Allahu Allahu Allah wa salam in a hadith which is mentioned or as mentioned in a set of divination. He said, When I was a boy, I attended the mapa de bien Alliance, I the football Alliance. i The Alliance has given a number of names. Now in MLB, happy Rahim Allah, He says that there was a number of agreements that were made in renewing this particular alliance. And one of them was called the health or the health of Moto G and the Alliance of the Moto Eb, and the Moto EB and as I mentioned, a number of tribes have been no Hersham, but in

00:26:45--> 00:27:09

my room when I was a Hara, they all came to agree that we can't allow oppression or wrongdoings to to anyone. The Prophet sallallahu sallam said, I attended this with my uncle's. And I would not love that even read camels as a recompense for me breaking the terms of this alliance. It meant a lot to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam in upholding adult justice even for prophethood.

00:27:11--> 00:27:17

So this was another important event in the early life of the prophet Sallallahu annual annual center.

00:27:18--> 00:27:24

Okay, so we spoke about some important issues up to the age of about 20

00:27:26--> 00:27:27

When he was about 20, Elisa to Sudan.

00:27:29--> 00:27:31

Then we have

00:27:33--> 00:27:38

the marriage of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to Hadiya.

00:27:39--> 00:27:48

Now, Khadija Radi Allahu Anhu had married previously, both of her husband's dying, passing away.

00:27:49--> 00:28:02

And she was known for her noble character, she was from licorice. And they would give her good names as the pure on the chest one, she was also a wealthy person. She had lots of wealth.

00:28:03--> 00:28:04


00:28:05--> 00:28:11

she's also you know, a student as a businesswoman. So she had her income always, you know, moving and

00:28:12--> 00:28:14

using itself to to increase.

00:28:15--> 00:28:25

So she had a number of people working for her. There was also a number of people who proposed to her, but she refused, due to the reasons that it wasn't something suitable for her.

00:28:27--> 00:28:33

And Nabi SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam also was one of those people who did some work for her, some business work for him.

00:28:34--> 00:28:35


00:28:37--> 00:28:54

the work that he Salallahu Alaihe Salam did for her when he returned, if, for example, certain money was given to him to do some business to purchase to buy and sell, the return that he Salallahu Alaihe Salam would get would be particularly blessed would be particularly good. And she, on the other hand, she recognized this.

00:28:55--> 00:28:56


00:28:59--> 00:29:05

on the same, at the same token, the personality of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam became very apparent became very clear

00:29:06--> 00:29:09

that he was an extremely trustworthy person,

00:29:10--> 00:29:38

that he this was a person where the particular amount of wealth was given to him. And then he would return by Allah's permission with a left hand with a good return. And it wouldn't be heard that he would be taking anything. He was no result I mean, the trustworthy person. So his personality and his character was something that shone through it was known to her or the Allahu Allah and amongst her other companions, and it was something that, you know, such a person

00:29:39--> 00:29:42

would be an ideal person to marry.

00:29:43--> 00:29:44


00:29:46--> 00:29:50

a close friend of Khadija Nafisa bin Tamara,

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

the head the head, the discussion concerning the Mohammed Abdullah Salallahu Alaihe Salam

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

And a proposal was given to him on behalf of Khadija

00:30:05--> 00:30:14

and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was extremely pleased and happy with the proposal. Nonetheless, he would of course, make consultation with his family members.

00:30:15--> 00:30:23

And they all agreed that she was a noble person, a very good person that he should marry her, and that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then married her.

00:30:27--> 00:30:36

She was the first woman that the Prophet sallallahu ala said they're married. And while being married to her that he did not marry any other woman.

00:30:37--> 00:30:39

He did not marry any other woman.

00:30:40--> 00:30:45

And from his seven children, six of them, six of them.

00:30:47--> 00:30:49

From Khadija Radi Allahu Ana.

00:30:50--> 00:30:58

She was the mother of six of his seven children, Al Qasim and Abdullah his two sons that they passed away when they were young.

00:30:59--> 00:31:03

Also Xena Broca on consume and farty, Marathi line when

00:31:05--> 00:31:08

they were also his daughters, and they

00:31:09--> 00:31:10

accept Fatima

00:31:11--> 00:31:18

that they all died in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu. I sent him 14 Out of the aligner she passed away shortwave short while after

00:31:19--> 00:31:21

the Prophet sallallahu anuario syndrome.

00:31:23--> 00:31:38

Now concerning this incident in the verge of a new visa limit is commonly understood amongst many of the historians and them had youth under the age of unreason them was 25. And that hottie God align her was 14.

00:31:39--> 00:32:13

However, the other opinions to stay that Khadija la de Lyonne wasn't that old, but maybe it was in her late 20s or early 30s. And that there are some logical arguments that a woman of that age 40 Plus to give birth to six children maybe is a lot. And is that possible? Of course, it's possible. If Allah subhanaw taala decrees and once that to be confirmed, you can be and it will be. So it's not necessarily a sufficient argument to come with, with medical proof to say, Well, maybe it's doubtful.

00:32:14--> 00:32:25

Now, this is what is commonly known and alasa knows myths concerning the issue that digital the aligner was 40 and that he's I send them was, was 25. So 15 years younger than her

00:32:26--> 00:32:27


00:32:28--> 00:32:51

some benefits that we you know, we can take from from this is the fact that the Prophet salallahu is some has such a strong character, and not just a strong character I what I mean by a strong character is that the character that he had was so apparent and so clear, in that he was known for his trustworthiness, his trust, his truthfulness,

00:32:52--> 00:32:55

trustworthiness and truthfulness,

00:32:56--> 00:33:02

two very important qualities. And even Allah subhanaw taala mentions in sort of us

00:33:03--> 00:33:12

in verse 26, that the best of men to hire is the strong alpha we will Amin, the strong person and the trustworthy person.

00:33:14--> 00:33:19

So these are two very important characteristics for any believer to have.

00:33:22--> 00:33:45

Also, we look at the calendar of Allah subhanaw taala. The Nabi sallallahu alayhi salam was to marry this particular woman, Khadija accorded Ubuntu hoilett or the Alana, and she had received many proposals proposal prior to this. But she said no. And she herself rather instigated the proposal to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and this in turn would be then

00:33:48--> 00:34:11

you know, the Prophet and so so I'm having, you know, many children with her, and farty model, the Allahu Allah who then had Hassan Hussein, and then you know, the lineage after that, and this is, you know, subhanAllah, the founder of Allah, Allah is who will decree things. So this was for us an opportunity to see the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala. And in all issues and on all matters.

00:34:15--> 00:34:21

That's another important issue that we're going to speak about. And the last one we deal with today. Insha Allah Tala and this lesson

00:34:22--> 00:34:32

is still before prophethood. And this occurred when the Prophet sallallahu I said was about 35 years old. And the coresh

00:34:34--> 00:34:38

discussed an issue about the rebuilding of al Qaeda

00:34:39--> 00:34:52

due to a flood that has caused some damage to the Kaaba. Now the car by the time isn't as as you know it now. It's very high. Now its height was maybe just taller than a normal man, its height, okay.

00:34:54--> 00:34:58

So they wanted to discuss how to rebuild it, and how to repair it.

00:35:00--> 00:35:29

This was a source of something very sacred to them. This was the Kaaba was very sacred to them and that they would only want to rebuild it, replenish it with Halal money if you like or Halal wealth, wealth that was stolen wealth that was gained through a moral panic they understood some immorality, but Well, that was pure wealth, good wealth that was only to be used in the fixing and the repairing of, of the cab.

00:35:30--> 00:35:30


00:35:32--> 00:35:51

they themselves actually didn't move around one of the chief of the Masoom clan, he said, I will begin with its, you know, demolishing, if you like bit by bit, and that they would do bits at night, and that they would try to break you know, slowly slowly, and if they saw something that they felt was like a bad omen that they would quickly put it back

00:35:52--> 00:36:02

and then they would try the second night and then they will try to take it apart slightly at the damaged part that is and if they felt that there was no warning sign that they would continue you know, breaking that and then they would repair it with

00:36:03--> 00:36:05

whatever it was to be repaired with.

00:36:06--> 00:36:20

Now each tribe was you know, assigned the task of working on each side of the cab. And you know, this involved people getting involved physically removing, carrying repairing, fixing of the cab.

00:36:21--> 00:36:30

The Prophet sallallahu ala said Mr. His uncle Allah best what do I know, also participated in the reconstruction of the cab at this time. Now,

00:36:31--> 00:36:34

the Blackstone or what yeah, the Blackstone

00:36:35--> 00:36:37

had to be replaced.

00:36:38--> 00:36:51

Blackstone had to be replaced in the cab. Now, everyone wants to do that. Okay, we wanted to do you know, to seal the reconstruction of the, of the cab. So before

00:36:53--> 00:37:15

kind of war broke out, and bearing in mind, the kind of attitude that they had with war, that it wasn't all necessarily, you know, a last resort. Okay, let's try to discuss and negotiate in a good way. And then if we can't work it out, we'll try. What was something that was quite high up on the list if things didn't really go quite well? You know,

00:37:16--> 00:37:58

what did you say? Okay, we'll get our tribes we'll go out we'll have war, you know, something as simple as that. Anyhow, what they decided, is that they will call Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was a trustworthy person, a wise person, and he would advise them on the matter how to resolve this particular problem. So the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Bring me a cloth, bring me a robe. And when they brought to him, this piece of cloth to him he placed the Blackstone in its middle with his hands and said, ladies tribe hold one each corner of the rope so that each leader of the sub tribe hold each corner and that they will be able to place the cab cab rather the Blackstone

00:37:58--> 00:38:02

chakra, the Blackstone back into the cab now. So

00:38:05--> 00:38:14

the problem was resolved with a very easy solution with Ella Hill hunt, and an abuse of logs. LM was the one who showed them how to

00:38:16--> 00:38:22

resolve this particular problem now, and the result was we said was an abuse I suppose 35 At this time,

00:38:23--> 00:38:46

bearing in mind what he SallAllahu wasallam had gone through, I mean, we've gone through it fairly quickly. But it is just enough for us to just think about in our own little way, if you like about from his early age, Elisa Salam, the experiences what he had gone through what he had seen what he had done, some of the travels, the people he had met, some of the bloodshed that he had seen, and some of the great

00:38:49--> 00:38:59

allegiances and promises that were made at the time of us supporting Adam and supporting justice. And this is something that as Muslims, we should, we should be at the forefront with

00:39:00--> 00:39:29

that even because this agreement, very important, the prophet Addison would often talk about this agreement that was prior to the revelation of the Quran. We mentioned earlier the allegiance of the fool, okay, where they would support the oppressor, the one who has been oppressed, and that the wrongdoer would not be tolerated. So, the fact that Nabi SallAllahu ala syndromes used to speak about this used to within himself used to love justice used to love adult

00:39:31--> 00:39:45

and this is one of the most important characteristics or important traits that any one of us should try to strive for have within ourselves. And that is to be fair and to be just in every single matter that we come across.

00:39:46--> 00:40:00

From the smallest of issues to the biggest of issues. We shouldn't be a people on with talking about being fair and being just, we don't, for example, be become picky and choosey as to what I'm going to be a jerk.

00:40:00--> 00:40:10

Fast With or fair with. Because if you find yourself being fair and just with the small things, you will find this a trait within yourself, you'll find that you will want to do it in the bigger matters.

00:40:11--> 00:40:16

Whereas if you find yourself picking and choosing what you want to be fair and just in,

00:40:18--> 00:40:25

not necessarily and it is an important point, it is not necessarily that you're going to say within yourself

00:40:26--> 00:40:34

that I'm going to be an oppressor here. And I don't want to be fair here. But other times, I'm going to be fair, I mean, that's clear cut, you know.

00:40:37--> 00:40:41

I don't know, hypocrisy, if you like in your approach to being just

00:40:42--> 00:40:46

is completely messed up. What I'm talking about is that

00:40:47--> 00:40:55

you will justify to yourself, or you will try to convince yourself that you are being fair, and you're being just in a matter

00:40:57--> 00:41:16

because of your desires. Because of your desires, you will try to convince yourself you make excuses to say, Well, I mean, it could be you know, 1,000,001 scenarios that you can make up, for example, what let's say, for example, is to do with wealth to do with money. Okay? Let's say for example,

00:41:18--> 00:41:20

ordinarily, you know,

00:41:21--> 00:41:22

you owe people money,

00:41:23--> 00:41:50

or somebody disturbs in a situation between two people, somebody's asking for this amount. And the person says, Yeah, but you know, don't can't do it, you will enforce justice there to ensure that that amount of monies specifically is given to that person, as happened in that allegiance of the full moon, that a person took the merchandise, the person didn't pay for it. They didn't go there and say his get the money from given the sediment, give them merchandise back to him.

00:41:52--> 00:42:27

What I'm talking about is a person will say within himself, because that's to other people. And it's easy for him to be just, if Allah azza wa jal allows it to be easy for him to be just between two, but when it comes for himself, for example, that maybe he owes that He will justify and make 101 excuses that, well, maybe it wasn't really the type or the quality of work that I wanted. So therefore, I have a right to delay or have the right to minimize it, or have the right to do this. And the shaytaan within that person will make a number of excuses to justify that they're being fair and that they're being just

00:42:29--> 00:42:35

so the person has to be very careful as to how they understand what justice and what fairness is.

00:42:36--> 00:42:50

And that they should ask Allah subhanaw taala to allow them to allow their minds to be pure and clean for many Western Associaton or to purify themselves for many desires, that the Lions have where justice and fairness is, that is left clear to them does not become cloudy.

00:42:52--> 00:42:52


00:42:54--> 00:43:29

this is something that we look when we look back on the life of Nabi SallAllahu, is somebody had gone through and his experiences and the amount of wisdom and that the last panel had given to Him, we find him at the age of around 35 preventing, possibly, you know, the spilling of blood around the Kaaba because of the tribes wanting to replace or complete the construction of, of the Kaaba. And even at that time, the Quraysh that they wanted to refer back to and Nabi SallAllahu, it was also important point for us, that when we start talking about the coming of the revelation,

00:43:30--> 00:43:56

that they were quickly to start, you know, calling him many names and say many bad things about him. But just a few years ago, just a short while ago, just a short while ago, that you hear it is you're calling him here to be a judge, or to be a person to advise how are we going to complete the reconstruction of, of the cab. So what I would say, because we're going to stop here with the new Tyler, is just look over some of these events,

00:43:57--> 00:44:20

that the Prophet sallallahu ala send them what we know about our interviews, I send them before prophet hood. And look at how they shaped the character, how Allah subhanaw taala had decreed a certain things would happen and how he would you know, mold and make this particular individual who is going to carry the reseller who is going to carry the message for mankind until the Day of Judgment.

00:44:22--> 00:44:34

It's an amazing responsibility to be given to any one person to carry the message to give to receive the revelation from Allah subhanaw taala that wood now and remains with us on all of these shelves here now.

00:44:35--> 00:44:48

How many centuries 1000 1400 And how many who knows what laws of general right for this earth to you know how how long we have left here, that this man was being prepared by Allah subhanaw taala to

00:44:49--> 00:44:52

become an individual of individuals

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

to become the man of old men to become fatal hull color to become

00:45:00--> 00:45:41

The best man that ever lived on us. And when you see how Allah subhanaw taala prepared this individual, the more you know him, the more that you love him. And the more that you will want to follow his sunnah. And the more that you will want to speak, how he spoke and eat, how he ate. And every aspect of the sooner the you know, you will want it to become an intricate part of who you are. But the person who doesn't know that a person who is ignorant of that will just be maybe just lift lip service about saying that they love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, he didn't want it to be lip service you don't want to be it's not a shallow love. But really is a deep love within

00:45:41--> 00:45:50

yourself. That when you talk about this man, and he said to them, that you're talking about really the most beloved person to you.

00:45:51--> 00:46:06

That when you think about him that you feel emotionally, you should feel emotionally you should feel a love. You should feel an intensity about this person that you're talking about. That if you don't have that you'll find that your love is really shallow. Then you need to increase your knowledge about who this individual was.

00:46:08--> 00:46:18

Mohammed bin Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so we'll continue in our next lesson inshallah Allah Baraka la vida, masa, Mozilla, Mozilla, mobilock and NBN and Muhammad while early he was so happy masala McConnell
