so as you're aware, I like to talk about incidents from the Sierra that are in the margins that are not generally talked talked about. For the mainstream stories, you can listen to my theater lectures online. But there are so many stories of the Sierra. And a lot of times these stories are kind of left, you know, because sometimes some people might think they're awkward, but I don't think any story is awkward. I think every story that is found in the Sierra, it is something that we benefit from we are it's amazing. It makes us appreciate the Sahaba and what happened between them. So today's instant is going to be one of those stories. It involves an issue that we're all aware of
and that is the slander of Ayesha DeSoto. If you know what happened with the slander of Isla de la Juana and three of the famous Sahaba respected Sahaba they slipped up and they propagated the slander, how many have been the judge and
the the nephew of a worker of Siddiq?
And Hassan even sabots, the famous poet, our incident today we'll deal with his son Amitabh Radi Allahu taala, and who hasn't heard have been sabots great Sahabi but the Sahaba human beings and sometimes slip up happens. And generally speaking, the poets are those that they like to diversify, and they are involved in poetry and they see things. So for Reasons Allah knows, Hassan rhodiola, one slipped up and he began spreading this rumor as well.
In the interim Safwan Ebner more often the companion whom was accused in the story, the one who found is God Allah, who, by the way, someone never got married in his life. He never touched a lady in his life, and he died a Shaheed in a later battle, he never got married, so find out that he was not from the Huzur or the unsought. He was from another tribe. So he didn't have a tribe to back him up. He was alone man. Neither was Hiroshi, nor was he Madani he had migrated from another tribe. And so he didn't have a tribe to back him up. So when he signed up with Abdullah, the Allah Han continued doing this Safwan got so angry that one day he hid on the streets of Medina.
And he waited for his son to come. And he jumped on him. And he took the sword out but not unsheathed it. And he hit him with the sword. And as he's hitting him, he said a line of poetry. This is ironic line of poetry. He said, I am a warrior man. His poetry the Arabic is
an effect on Africa with the Arabic is either Huji to finesse to be ready. If somebody makes fun of me. He's gonna hear my sword, not my poetry. Ironically, he's making a poem and he's hitting his site at the same time. Okay, and he goes How dare you say this about me and about Icod Allah on physically hitting now Hassan was wounded it's not the sword it's the blunt of the sword it's not the unsheathed sword, right? got angry fist fight as that happens. Now has sandal the Allahu and he is from, you know, the hospital. She is Jani Madani. His tribe is there, when his tribe discovers what someone has done, they're not gonna stay quiets. So now they wait for him. And they capture
him. They tie his hands and they bring him to their vicinity of Medina. They bring him to their vicinity, wondering what to do with him. In the meantime, one of the senior of the husband passes by and sees his son tied with his hands. He says what happened? He goes his son hit Safwan. Sorry, so fun. It's a fun title. So one hit has son, and now we have someone in our midst. He says our older Biller, have you told the prophet Sallallahu? Either he will send them, they said no. He said, No, I'm going to take him directly to the Prophet system. You know, this is vigilante justice. You don't go behind the law. You don't take the law into your own hands. So he took Safwan tied up and Hassan
injured to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and explained the whole story. This is how you deal with the problem. You don't do vigilante justice, you take it to the authorities. And the Prophet says and I'm said to someone, also fun. Why did you beat up his son? And someone said you have rasool Allah He said things you know about by the way, this is before it came down. This is before this is that
40 Day interim is when the tensions are rising. Right? So the revelation has not yet come down that you know, what happened is a calumny and whatnot. And so in this interim Safwan hits has sided with the lawan. The prosom says to soften Why would you do this? And he says, yeah Rasulillah you know what he is saying? And I cannot be patient at this. So the Prophet Solomon he is, of course hurt by what Hassan is saying. He turns to his son he goes, Yeah, his son, will you forgive someone for my sake? Subhanallah Jani the Prophet CISM takes the side because I mean, it's really think about this he is hurt that Hassan is spreading lies, but what Safwan did is also wrong. Right? So he says to
his son, will you forgive someone for my sake? And I shall you know, pay you the blood money or not not a blood money but I mean, the would you call the the the money for the wounds? What's the what's the term I forgotten the technical term, I'll pay you the penalty myself. He took in charge the sauce, I'll pay you the Kasasa blood for myself not to have the actual body but of the the wounds I'll take charge of it. So the Profit System took charge. And because of this, he gifted his son even Tabet, a large garden, the bureau hog garden, the famous incident debater I was aware of, and also one more focus, gifted the Prophet sallallahu sallam, Maria and her sister sitting, he gave
seating to his son as a result of this beating up. As a result of this beating up he gifted land and he gifted seating to his son, even Tabet. Then of course, Allah revealed that you know, they should be punished. And so his son was punished the punishment of slander, the punishment of slander at lashes, he was punished along with the other two, three people of the Sahaba were punished now. This is actually a prelude, the story is going to come now.
hishammuddin Old West says that my father, Arabian Mr. Wood said that and that's the nephew of Russia that once I was sitting in Russia, the law has house He's the nephew and I began speaking evil have Hassan Ibn habits for what he had done. This is many years later, this is decades later. Our Isha stopped him and said Do not say evil of him. For Allah He He was a man. He is a man who is still alive at the time who defended the messenger in his poetry.
So Urawa is shocked. She is defending her son afterward Hassan has done so he said But But what he said what he said like how could you defend him? And she said he was punished. The punishment Allah says Done, the punishment was given to him. Now we don't have to make it worse. Another of the students have Ayesha says, I should not be allowed one How did not allow anybody to criticize her son in her presence? Subhanallah after what he had done, no one could criticize his son, even sabbat masuk another student of Arusha says and this hadith is in Makati. And this is where we're going to conclude this hadith masuk says this hadith in Bukhari and Muslim I entered in upon a show one time
and his son Eben sabot, as an old blind demand was sitting there. This is again many years later. This is at least 30 years after the incident of the slander now as son has gone blind, and he's sitting in our issues chamber behind the curtain. And my stroke was shocked. How is his son sitting, speaking to Russia, and his son began reciting poetry in praise of our Isha
poetry in praise of Artesia and of course this is a famous poem of Hassan Amitabh it. Hassan orizon ma to Zen Newberry within what to spiritual, a lot of mill Hilmi al Hawa Philly is a very famous poetry for has done a bit of it that Hassan orizon she is describing. I should have the Alagna Hassan means she is chaste and virtuous. She has never committed any wrong. Or Azhar known means she is wise and intelligent. Ma to Zen Newberry button means not to doubt cast upon her credibility. So she is chaste. She is intelligent and wise, there's not too whispering of a doubt to swallow spirit who Hatha Milla, Milla feely and who wants to translate a monster out of brethren. Well to spiritual
Hatha Femme and Milla feely, really issue minor hurdle rates well to spear ohada Thurmond, Kamala Vinny who can tell me so a lot of thought means you are very hungry, but you still don't eat those because she wakes up. She wakes up hungry. Having never touched the meat of innocent people, is a beautiful metaphor that the meat of innocent people is easy to touch. Right? But she would never say anything nasty about somebody else.
That's what it means. Okay? She would rather remain quiet and starve than to take the flesh of somebody that is easy to pluck even because that person is good. Okay now what is interesting here what is the key point? Has I should have the loved one huh? She responded from behind the veil. Well I can neck Antalya, Hassan Lester Gallic, oh has son, you yourself did not live up to these lines that you're saying. Subhanallah See, to me, this is a very human understanding of our mother, I shall be Allah Juana. She defended her son in his absence. She would not allow anybody to speak against his son when he's not there. In fact, she said he defended Allah and he defended the Prophet
systems honor and he gave poetry in defensive Islam. No one could criticize his son in her presence. Now when his son comes, she is in pain at what his son has done. And when Hassan says that, you know, she does not speak against the flesh of others, our Isha
taps on the wrist, he goes, You're praising me now. But you yourself did something back then that goes against these very lines. Subhanallah this shows us, you know, this is the real adult like, you know, she forgave, she didn't quite forget, there's still some pain. And when Hassan tried to make up, she accepts but she reminds her son, you know, you did the do this mistake so many years ago. So we find here the reality of the Sahaba perfection at a human level. It's not as if she could completely forget what had happened. She remembered what his son had done. But at the same time, she did not allow anybody to speak evil of Hassan and Tabitha. She forgave him she defended, but at the
same time, small pinch, yeah, his son, you have some making up to do and Insha Allah, we firmly believe that he was forgiven in this world, he was punished in this world as well. And one of the main points and I spoken about this under the lectures, it shows us that you know, you can make a major mistake, you can have a blunder in your life, and still have a lot of good and Hassan embodies that it gives us hope. It gives us hope. You can commit a major blunder, you can do something that even the Prophet system was irritated by this, but he was forgiven and Allah forgave him, I should defend it against him. And in that sense, he does become a role model for us. May Allah subhana wa
Tada have mercy on all of them and put us in their ranks in the agenda to for those who sit on Moloch Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
