smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad in what are the main number? So today we're moving on in our lives of the Sahaba and we're doing the famous of the companions and today I will do inshallah Tada, one of the earliest converts to Islam one of the greatest names in our history and tradition, and that is Abdullah ibn Massoud. alhuda. de Minimus. Rude even Machado the Allahu taala and who and Eben Massoud, as we have all heard throughout the Sierra, he is a a seminal player in really the beginning of the zero all the way to the end of this era. And and hamdulillah we have a lot of information about even Masood because he

00:01:02 --> 00:01:36

was really one of the major Sahaba so I'm gonna condense this could have been to * because I decided to just do it in one halaqaat Abdullah bin Masood belongs to a non kurachi Arab tribe by the name of Ben Whoo hoo they hence his call to hoodie. His father Masood Abdullah live in Missouri. His father Massoud in law, Phil had migrated to MCC for business. And he had formed an alliance in Arabic is called the health with somebody from the tribe of Bernal Zahara, somebody from the tribe of Bonnaroo Zahara burrows O'Hara does ring the bell, the tribe of men who Zahara who belongs to the tribe have been ozora.

00:01:41 --> 00:01:45

Even more famous than sad, who belongs to the tribe have been ozora

00:01:48 --> 00:02:01

Amina the mother of the Prophet system. Amina is from the zoo Hola, buenas O'Hara, the mother of the processes from de Bono's Ohara. So, Abdullah bin Massoud, his father Massoud

00:02:02 --> 00:02:43

long story, but apparently his father's grandmother was from wh zero. Okay, so three generations back, a lady from the coronation marries a man from the holidays. Eventually they have somebody by the name of Massoud, this Massoud then forms a health a alliance with his cousin from the grandmother right from the bundles or is that clear right now? A mother is not going to give you the nest hub of Porsche if a lady is from the car he marries a man from the Hussain the children are who Dolly they're not from the garage. So he doesn't have the nests of garage but he has a little bit of blood from the garage from his mother's side his grandmother said mustard we're talking about so he

00:02:43 --> 00:02:59

forms a * of an alliance what is a health okay? A health is essentially a h1 visa. Okay? Or what do you guys on j one T one q one I don't know which ones What is it? h1 right? Most of you guys h1 visa, you come right?

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

Most of you you're American Mashallah. Okay, so am I shall look good for you.

00:03:06 --> 00:03:33

But the what is a visa? a visa is given to you. Right? It's not a right that you have it's not a privilege. Unlike an American, you're born here. You it's a privilege. So if you're born into courageous, you have it Hello. Nobody can take it away from you. But what if you want to live in America? What do you have to do? You have to get a visa, okay? This is a health. Okay? So you have to find somebody who's going to sponsor you.

00:03:34 --> 00:04:22

And once you find that person, essentially that person then becomes basically your representative if you like, and so if anybody harms you, then he has to protect you. Okay, but you're never going to be a kurachi. So, unlike citizenship, h1 cannot get an upgrade to a green card cannot get an upgrade to know it doesn't work that way. A health you're always safe. Okay? You're always ahead. If so, even Massoud is not apology. He is a belief. A belief means you have a lower status in the hierarchy of the Arabs. Halley's means you are second class free citizen. halys means you're not a slave. If you're a slave, then you're going to be Mola acid, even lower category. So the lowest category would

00:04:22 --> 00:04:42

be Mola Mola is a freed slave. Okay, actually, there is a lower category and unfried slave, that's the lowest category and bilad was an unfried slave. Then Bella became a molar, he became a freed slave, you cannot get higher than that if you're a slave, a non Arab, the max he can do if he changes tribes is to become a Hanif

00:04:43 --> 00:04:59

and as a head if you will always be looked down upon you will always be basically given low jobs. I mean, not to be very racist recruit but in this country, how does the predominant this this country think of immigrants from a certain land down

00:05:00 --> 00:05:41

himself. Not to be crude, but this is the reality. Okay, that how these people think I'm talking about the racism, don't read into it, obviously it is racist. That type of racism was even worse in Mecca. Where if you're a leaf, essentially, yeah, you're not worth, you're not worth us, but at the same time, you cannot be treated like a slave. This is Abdullah bin Massoud. So even Massoud is born and raised in Makkah, but he's never going to be a Macau Qureshi. He's always going to be second class citizen, and his mother was also from the tribe of the Herve the hoodie, and his mother had an interesting name, only ABD are mapped. That was his mother's name. Oh man, for some reason her

00:05:41 --> 00:05:54

grandfather called Oh Mab which means the mother of the of the slave that for some reason, we don't i don't i couldn't find why I don't think anybody knows anymore. But that is why it been Massoud was always also called it been Oh man.

00:05:55 --> 00:06:39

hours profit system called urban Miss road many times it's been mapped. The son of an old man is the mother of Abdullah ibn Massoud. We also know from the books of Cyril and Hadith that Abdullah bin Massoud was an extremely short man very, very short. Now the books are sera don't mention height in inches and feet and whatnot. But I would guesstimate he was less than five feet tall. Why? Because some incidents mentioned that if he was walking amongst people who were seated, some people might even assume that he himself was basically amongst them seated, they wouldn't realize that he's actually standing up. And if he was in a crowd, nobody could see him because he's inside the crowd,

00:06:40 --> 00:07:23

as well. There are references, of course, the books of Sahaba and whatnot. They don't mention this explicitly, but there are indications the references that he wasn't of the finest appearance, there's an indirect references like this. There's also references that he did not have a thick beard. So in those days, thick beards were a sign of, of luxury or manliness or, you know, what not, so his beard was patchy. So that's also a sign that is not like, not, you know, a full grown beard. If you read it or whatever, the hot tub, his beard Kanika he valaria they say this is a praise of him. His beard was luscious, and thick. Even Massoud he had sparse hair, didn't have it full

00:07:23 --> 00:08:13

growing. And as well, it is said the books of sera mentioned that he was extremely thin, no bone, no no fat, no flesh, very small, very short, very thin. And he was of extremely dark complexion. Okay, extremely dark is what shadow Duma, which basically means, obviously, his skin color was essentially on the black side. So even Massoud or the Allahu taala and was born in Makkah raised amongst the Quran, but he was never considered a Cora she or I forgot to mention amongst his physical appearances, towards the end of his life, he developed markings under his eyes, because of the frequent quantity of crying he would do and he decided to hold on. So he had permanent markings on

00:08:13 --> 00:08:56

his eyes, because he would cry when he decided to hold on it then it essentially carved out his skin if you like. So you could see those markings from his, from his cheek from his cheeks. So even mustard we said was born in the garage, and he was given our jobs. And we learned this from his story of conversion. He himself tells us how he converted to Islam. He says in the first person the story is an urbanist even cites the book was one of the earliest books of Sahaba he says that I was a young boy not even having reached the age of puberty. So you can say 11 years old 1011 years old, and I was with the sheep of Rocco but even more I are the goats there were no sheep goats. The goats

00:08:56 --> 00:08:57

have a bit of you might

00:08:59 --> 00:09:03

even be more I used to see ringabel robot urban Abbey Mario's during the bell.

00:09:08 --> 00:09:15

Good, but what else? Why? That's the question. Why? I've been a bit more. The worst of the worst.

00:09:16 --> 00:09:24

The worst of the worst. Exactly. Mashallah, you answer we need to pause and take a revolt in the moment, right?

00:09:26 --> 00:09:52

I need the prize to give myself that's the second question. You answered it. How many is my show anyway? I like to teach him that so okay. hamdulillah he's my favorite student. That's why do you know how many people around the world has given Salaam to him anonymously give my salaams to the note taker? I've been told even a few weeks ago where I was somewhere giving my salaams to the note taker you are famous Mashallah. But his name is unknown. I'm not allowed to mention his name in public but he is famous across the globe. hamdulillah. So

00:09:54 --> 00:10:00

what was the question totally forgot about it would have been worried. It would have been worried. What did he do? He

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

was the evil person who threw the carcass on top of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam while he was in says that this is where I've been worried. Even Miss road is a worker is getting some Bharati at some pennies to go and take his goat. And basically, you know, feed the goat and pasture them. So he says, I was with the goat of rock might have been married. And the Prophet says, and a worker met me in the valleys of Mecca fleeing the persecution of Croatia, away from the college nearby. And they said to me, yeah, Hola. Oh, young boy. Do you have any milk that we can drink? So Rocha said yes, but I cannot give it to you because I am interested in them what time it even was to sorry, even Mr.

00:10:47 --> 00:11:35

Wood said yes, but I cannot give it to you. Because it's not mine. I'm not the owner. If I was the owner, I can give you I'm not the owner. I'm a hired hand mortarman and I cannot give it to the shows, even mushrooms What? honesty and Amana as a young boy is like I cannot give it it's not my possession that I can give you the milk. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Do you have any female goat that is not pregnant, not giving milk? Dried? Other? Do you have any goat that is not giving any milk? So he said Yes, that one there. So the Prophet has held on to the other of the goat and made dua, or even Massoud said and he said things and the other filled up and aboubaker

00:11:35 --> 00:12:16

brought some rock with a hole or something in it. And the process of drank and drank and then they gave him a suit here you drink. We'll give it to you without asking. It's not okay, so they give it to him as root. So even Massoud said that I went through the process of them and said, teach me what you have just said. I live near Give me a reason. What did you just say here? That I can also say it saved me a lot of money saved me all the hassle of I don't have to go feed the goats just do it like this right? Teach me what you have said. And the prophets of Salaam said yeah, Hola, Maria, William, all you little boy or little boy, you are an educated Boy, that you are an intelligent boy like

00:12:16 --> 00:13:00

you're a precocious kid, meaning what other young boy would want to learn, you know, especially in that era, learning was not something that was of interest to them. And the process of sensed in him sensed in him a curiosity and inquisitiveness. He said, You are an educated or you're educated as maybe the best way that you, you have a mind to learn. You want to be taught, right? So the prophets has some sense to inhibit Massoud that he wants to study. And even more shrewd was to become really the greatest of the senior Sahaba Abbas was the greatest of the younger Sahaba had been Ibis, the Sahaba are multiple generations. And essentially, we can say you have the Kabbalah Sahaba and

00:13:00 --> 00:13:26

stellata sahabah make it easy make it to Abdullah bin Abbas was the greatest scholar but of the Sahaba of the younger scholars, he was not of the older scholars. So when the older scholars were alive even above, we didn't even have bus last week, those who have never been at bus was not at that level, even was rude was of the highest level of the Kibar of Sahaba, of the senior Sahaba. And

00:13:27 --> 00:14:07

this also shows as well, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is noticing, who amongst his followers has potential, and then he trains them in that manner. And this is the way of every good leader, every good teacher, you don't treat everybody exactly the same, you give each one what they need. And some students require this, others require that even teachers leaders, some people require this task, others require that task. So you must read converted because of this miracle. And the source books mentioned that he converted even before doubt will come opened. So this is the earliest batch of converts that will come opened, when the data was still secret or private, that an outcome

00:14:07 --> 00:14:48

had already opened. Even mustard converted before the outcome. And it is said he is the sixth convert to Islam, or some have said he is of the first 20. So between these two, and perhaps he is the sixth amongst the men or the freedmen, let's say and if you include the women and the children and the slaves, maybe there's 20 How do you reconcile these two but still have the earliest batches of converts is how Billa even mustard. And so even though the Allahu taala is witnessing every single persecution, and he stays with the Muslims from the beginning, all the way to the end, very few of the Sahaba have this privilege and luxury to essentially be from the beginning, all the way

00:14:48 --> 00:14:59

to the end and then live a further 20 years after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Abdullah bin Massoud witnessed this incident and he witnessed it. He was

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

There, but he could do nothing, because who are the people doing this? The likes of omega n honnef and rockway will be miralles and Abuja Hill. These are like the senators. These are the congressmen. These are the most powerful of the courage, and he does not even have a green cart. He does not even have any rights or privilege, he has no one to support him. All they can do is to make dua and, and and curse them and whatnot. And also he notified somebody to go tell Fatima to come and help the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So even my throat is witnessing all of this. And no doubt this influenced him immensely, and it gave him a sense of of wanting to do something, and one of the

00:15:45 --> 00:15:56

first things that he did, and this is an honor that will go down forever in Islamic history. Even Massoud was the first Sahabi to recite the Quran in front of the Kaaba.

00:15:57 --> 00:16:00

The Quran is now recited 24 seven

00:16:01 --> 00:16:45

to the Day of Judgment, who was the first person to recite Quran in front of the garbage? It is Abdullah bin Massoud, a group of Sahaba. Were talking and they said, you know, none of us has yet recited the Quran in front of the crush. Now, of course, the process of would recite his own recitation but not like broadcasting to all of the society. So they said why don't we one of us go and recite the Quran maybe it will make their heart soft. So they looked around Eben Masaru said I will go recite, they said no, not you. We want somebody from the harsh like Earth man had been a fan like somebody who is from the nobleman, nobody's going to touch Earth man. You they said if you

00:16:45 --> 00:17:32

recite you have no one to protect you. Even Massoud said no. I will recite and Allah will protect me. I and he insisted to be the one to recite. So when he insisted they let him go so he the next morning went after when the sun had begun to rise. So essentially the hustle and bustle is at its peak. Okay, so you know whenever you have the rush hour, rush hour traffic, perfect analogy, right? Eight 9am when everybody's there, even mushroom went in front of the cab, and in his loudest voice, he began reciting which surah Mashallah, remember the pseudo Raman pseudo man. And as he began reciting the Quran, and by the way, this also shows to the Torah man is of the earliest suitors

00:17:32 --> 00:18:15

revealed, okay, the Quran began saying what is his What is he saying? what's what's your then then was this done? there? Was this buzzing he's doing? One of them said, Oh, this is what his Sahib is saying comes from God. This is what they're claiming is the speech of Allah. So when they heard this, call us, they came up to him, and they began punching and beating and hitting him until he fell down, he continued reciting until they began kicking him until he lost consciousness and he stopped reciting because he lost consciousness. So he could not finish the sutra because the he was beaten to a pulp and he lost consciousness in that beating, and he came back when he woke up from

00:18:15 --> 00:18:29

the consciousness or whatever unconscious, he then came back to the group of Sahaba. They said, That's exactly why we told you don't go that's what we were scared of your look, you have these broken ribs, broken bones, this and that. Why did you go? He said, Well, law he I am willing to go again tomorrow.

00:18:31 --> 00:19:13

I'm so Mr. Charge. Now I want to go again and do it tomorrow. They sent us enough. They heard the Koran. That's what we wanted you to do. Okay, so even Mr. Wood has this honor. And now as well, we learned from the books of Sierra, that even miss Rhodes conversion was noticed and it was disregarded. It is mentioned and I mentioned the story many, many times that once a delegation came through Abu Talib, and they gave a message to the Prophet sallallahu I said him some of them who are more sympathetic, right. And amongst them was a lady who here at the beginning, the father of harlot, right and amongst them was so hated and Amma who eventually converted to Islam. Okay, so

00:19:13 --> 00:19:17

these were not the because I said many times, these are all rehearsals were doing this.

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

Some of the aurash were downright evil. And by and large, none of them eventually embraced Islam. The likes of Europa, or may have been Khalid Abu Jamal, others of the Quran. They had a little bit of nobility even as they had Cofer at that point in time. And many of them eventually were guided to Islam. Classical Marxism is to a live animal and also our Sofia, Abu sufian. Yes, he became a Muslim at the very end he is a Sahabi is not of the greatest Saba, he has also hobby, but also fear never resorted to these types of things. He never stoop down this low to throw something on the process and have to say vulgar things, right. So people that

00:20:00 --> 00:20:40

there's a there's a heady theory that the best of you enjoy Hillier, or the best of you in Islam. There's a hadith disciple Holly. So Allah, you can have it without Eman And if you have good luck, generally speaking, when you embrace Islam luden Allah knows you will have better luck. But if you don't have good luck, don't be surprised. Even if you embrace Islam, you'll still have some bad luck. It's not necessary that all that will go away. So here's a bonus route had embraced Islam, some of the more sympathetic, have the courage so Haley and Amber and Oliver mohair and others, they sent a message. And they said, Look, we're willing to listen to what you have to say.

00:20:42 --> 00:20:54

We're willing to listen, but we have a condition. What is that condition? Get rid of autoload it's a very harsh word. kick out is exactly what it means. porada is to kick out

00:20:56 --> 00:21:02

kick out those amongst your followers, whom we cannot be seen with sitting in public.

00:21:04 --> 00:21:37

For it is not the fitting that we are seeing with the likes of and then they mentioned four or five names. And they began with Abdullah bin Masood, and they move on to Bilaal. And so haber Rumi, and hubub Abner and others of the early converts were non Arabs or non Karachi, okay? So they said it is not befitting because you see, even though even Massoud is a free man, he's not a slave. And even though he's out of pure out of place, he's not Satoshi has been who they are.

00:21:39 --> 00:22:11

So because he's been who they are, he would never sit in a gathering of pure karoshi or if he were he would be sitting in the back knowing his place. And everybody knew that in the madness of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam everybody's equal. Everybody knows this Bilal is sitting there along with Earth minded men are found they're all equal, doesn't matter who's who. So they said, it is not befitting that we be seen sitting with these hula these lonely people are totally home and then we will be willing to come and talk to you

00:22:12 --> 00:22:14

and perhaps

00:22:15 --> 00:23:01

out of a love for his people perhaps the idea began to formulate and so Allah revealed in no uncertain terms multiple verses in the Quran multiple versus what total to the lady in a drone or a Bahama, that you will ice you do not wanna try knock on home to reduce Enos and higher to dunya. Don't dare kick out those who are calling up Allah morning and evening. Right? Don't move your eyes beyond them don't go to the riffraff beyond them. And another verse Fatah truda, home Federico in the middle ha, serene, if you kick them out, then you will be from the hospital or LA what powerful versus who is Allah speaking to? Who is Allah speaking to and that what is being told to him? You

00:23:01 --> 00:23:26

see, and this leads me to a tangent, we're very interesting in our times, look, there's no doubt that at times we compromise certain things, this is the reality you have to but there are certain things we do not compromise in amongst them as our values, we cannot compromise our values. Yes, little bit here and there. Sometimes you have to maneuver out in fifth little bit, you have to do this and that and a low inshallah will forgive. But when it comes to our values or paradigm,

00:23:28 --> 00:23:31

they wanted to go back to the days of Jamelia, the hierarchy.

00:23:32 --> 00:24:11

And they wanted to go back to the racism of old, just like in the south whites this way blacks this way, they wanted that same mentality. And perhaps some people were thinking, you know, of the early Sahaba, even because even some of the Sahaba were thinkers on some of this unit. So however, it is said, I'm going to help Bob came to the president said, yeah, it's only a few gatherings, right? Call us, take them out for a little while, maybe these people will convert and it will be reasonable for Islam. It'll be great glory for Islam. But you see, you're setting the precedent. That's not what religion is. this religion is about this religion is not about the days of jelenia, you have to

00:24:11 --> 00:24:51

embrace it as a package deal. If you don't like a fundamental part of the package, I can't change the package for you. That's your rejection of the entire package. So the profitsystem was told keep him close. And that is why it is mentioned in other books that whenever he would see even Massoud and Bella and others who would sit with them, and they would say, My Lord has commanded me to sit with you. My Lord has commanded me to sit with you even less rhodiola hota and he was of those who migrated to Abba SR and to Medina. So he was of the few who are called that they are us Hubble hedgerow attain which is a very high honor in the CV of the Sahaba. If you read the sahabas

00:24:51 --> 00:24:59

biographies, that they have monarchic, they have CV points, what do you put on your resume, and there are things that every book of Sierra ventures about

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

The Sahaba they did this they did this even worse which essentially has pretty much everything you can have and more. Really everything you can have and more he has it. And of the things you put on a CV of the Sahaba is he emigrated both immigrations This is a very high honor. animus route has it. It appears he went on this second migration type descending not the first one, he came back and he then migrated to Medina before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And when he migrated to Medina, the prophet system paired him up it is said with there are a number of names given but one of them is was Eben jevin and is a very interesting pairing because more either bingeable is the

00:25:35 --> 00:26:13

scholar of the unsought nav mesh road is this color of the moho June so birds of a feather flock together so what are they been juggling is the greatest knowledgeable 40 have had on it How long have the unsought and they've been mushroom is the greatest art and the greatest, you know, not knowledgeable person or have the greatest amongst the Mahajan. And they become brothers when they migrate to Medina and the prophets of the law where I said him gave him a plot of land so the Maha jr were given small plots of land in Medina, the process of gave urban mushroom a plot of land very close to the masjid. So he was of the immediate surrounding vicinity of the question of the Prophet

00:26:13 --> 00:26:58

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And this is where Eben Massoud now, pretty much essentially became almost like a shadow to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam for the next 10 years, even Massoud was the official servant of the prophets ism official. Not that not that he became a slave. But everybody knew him as the primary servant of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam wherever the Prophet system walked, even Massoud would walk with Him carrying his belongings. At times when the need arose, he would walk in front to make way for him at times he would walk behind carrying his walking stick, for example, or he would carry his wooden container or his water container. Or when

00:26:58 --> 00:27:37

the need arose, he would take the shoes of the processor and put it under his arm so that in any time he needed it, it would bring it back. So he was always seen to be carrying the shoes of the process of under his right arm like this all the time. And that's why he became known as his lockup, his title is Sahaba nylon, the one of the two shoes, because he would always be seen carrying the shoes of the Prophet says that I'm close to him. So that to protect it, and not that anybody would steal it, but it could get lost anything could happen. And that if anybody anytime the process of needs the shoes use right then and there to give him his shoes. And he is also called the waterboy

00:27:37 --> 00:28:17

of the profitsystem. The waterboy means he has the little container, and he has the you know the water that is needed for the restroom, if it is needed, he would carry that water container all the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he would carry his cloak, and he would carry his miswak. And he would give him to the Prophet system, especially during the travels of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And in fact, he became so much close to the Profit System that outsiders would presume that a business rule was an insider to the family of the Profit System, almost like a shoddy marriage that when it came to Medina, my brother and I, we came to Medina, and

00:28:17 --> 00:28:23

we saw him as rude coming in and out in and out in and out of the house. And we assumed that he was from the LL Bates.

00:28:24 --> 00:29:02

See, we assumed he's from the family, even though he's not from the family, but so much back and forth, urban was rude and such privacy that he granted access to, we just assumed he is of the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And in fact, in most of the moment, there is a very interesting Hadith that praises even Massoud that the Prophet says and have said, You have my permission. Now don't take it literally. The point is, the process of is not saying to take it literally. But it's an expression, how close the process is to the mushroom, you have my permission to lift the curtain and to listen in to my private conversations whenever you want. Until I stop,

00:29:02 --> 00:29:32

you know, don't take it literally. Obviously the mushroom is not going to lift the curtain, lift the curtain, remember, between the door and the masjid, there was a curtain right between the door and the mister that processor. I've said many times there was simply a sitar. And the processor would simply walk out of his house and walk into the masjid. There was a small alleyway that was covered. So you know, but but essentially that small alleyway like it's not even enough for one man to go. It's just like, you know, safety thing or whatnot. So

00:29:33 --> 00:29:53

essentially, even Massoud is being told if you want, you can lift the hijab, and listen into my conversations. Obviously, it's not literal, you're not supposed to do that. But even with this being told, that's how much access he has with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam of the privileges and matters of his monopoly above his blessings

00:29:55 --> 00:30:00

which is of the highest blessings and this is no doubt if you

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

Look at the wizard, the resume of the Sahaba are the blessings of the Sahaba. The number one thing that is always mentioned in the books of the Sahaba is what battles they participated in. This is a very important point who participated in what battle? Okay, you will always find so and so participated in tabookey participated in, or they be as a big honor. Okay? He participated in order with what's the biggest honor amongst the battles. But okay, even Masood has the greatest honor that only a small handful of Sahaba got. And that is, every single battle without exception.

00:30:39 --> 00:30:50

Never was the absence from a battle. That is the highest level that only the likes of Obama and Omar and just a few of the elites have they have it. So it must have

00:30:51 --> 00:31:31

participated in each and every battle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, by the way, despite his short stature, and despite the fact that he was not known for his physical strength. But physical strength means nothing when you have bravery and courage, whichever Mr. Wood had, okay, he was not physically a strong man, but to handle how many strong men are actually weak because of their courage, and how many men that don't have physical strength have much more power, because of the courage that Allah subhanaw taala has given them. And we've all heard of the stories of Miss Ruth and the various battles Just a quick reminder in the Battle of butter, he was the one who the

00:31:31 --> 00:32:18

famous had it in body and in his heart, we mentioned it in a lot of detail. He was the one who said that I was standing on the bottle of butter, and I looked to my right, and I looked to my left, and I saw two young teenage boys. And I said, this is not a good position, I need to change, I need something that somebody is going to defend my flank. And then these are more than why we have even a banana for all of the unsought and they both were related to one another and they wanted to do what I remember the story they wanted, they both wanted to get Abuja. And they said, that we have heard that he is saying bad things about our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And soon as you show me

00:32:18 --> 00:33:02

him, then my shadow and his shadow will not part until one of us two is dead. And the both of these boys whispered to him in Moscow tell us which one I want to be the first to get him. So when they said this, Emerson said, Okay, I'm surrounded by real men, even if they're young boys, they have the courage of men. And even Massoud was the one who pointed out to these two boys. That's where it is. And the both of them he said they rushed like lightning, and they went through in and out and perhaps because they were so young, the other people didn't pay attention to them. Because all it was Hickman wisdom, and they managed to get all the way to Abuja, while standing on that mound on

00:33:02 --> 00:33:47

the plane of weather. And they both essentially almost simultaneously attack even to a curriculum attempted to defend and he was hearing about the son of Abu Jamal and Abuja Hall was severely wounded. One of them sliced the leg off the other one gave him a wound to the chest and then a third, young of the unsought also eventually hit or or bloodied Abuja *, and then nobody heard from Abuja throughout the rest of the battle, the battle finishes, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says to Eben Massoud, go find Abuja What happened? We could not find his dead body where is Abuja *. So he he is sent out of all of the Saba he is sent, and he goes through the entire

00:33:47 --> 00:34:39

battlefield, and he finds underneath one of the bodies he finds Abuja, mortally wounded, fatally wounded, he's about to die is very close to death, breathing heavily blood everywhere, and he sees even miss root. So a Buddha is still alive at this time and is about to die in is like almost gone, and he sees even Massoud and he cannot even Massoud cannot contain his anger. This is Abuja. So he puts his foot on Abuja has chest. Remember it when Massoud is four or five feet? Abuja is a giant Abuja had his strong man. This is like Roma, physically Remember, the process of made there are four, one of the two models, right? And the second one was Abuja physically they were both that type

00:34:39 --> 00:35:00

of strong giants of the harsh and so you have this little tiny Yvan Massoud putting his foot on a Buddha Hall. And he says to Abuja hallelujah I do well ah oh enemy of Allah, how Allah has humiliated you what an evil and now and to the various

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

And Abuja has remained Abuja to the very end. He says, What humiliation? This isn't humiliation, a man killed by his own people meaning you should be humiliated not me. Meaning he did not. So he's trying to say that you guys killed your own. And you and you, you think I'm gonna be here there's no you're gonna be humiliated amongst the Arabs, right? And look who is humiliated. As I said many times nobody knows the names of these people except that they hate them. Abu Jamal has zero fans on Facebook. Okay, zero likes nothing but dislikes, all of the legacy gone. And now he noticed his

00:35:43 --> 00:36:29

foot on his chest. And he says, You have risen a high rank or herder of sheep. Meaning How dare you put your foot on my chest? You're raising you have rising upon a high thing or herder of sheep putting him down? Who are you to do this and even was rude, therefore had the honor of delivering the final blow. Okay, at this point in time, it was rude, delivers the final blow to Abuja Hall. And he then comes and informs the Prophet sallallahu Sallam saying, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar Ania. Buddha has been killed and have killed Abu Jamal. And even though of course, it will surely acknowledge that the two young men and the three actually there were three, all of them participated

00:36:29 --> 00:37:17

and it is basically a joint effort. But the last blow was delivered by Eben Massoud and the Profit System set to even mushroom show me his body like I want to see because of all of Abuja, because again, Abuja you have to realize Abuja is essentially not just a torture, he is the leader of the tortures. He is the planner of the evil of maca. And we all know when the process of saw him What did he say, has a filter out who has the hill oma, famous phrase, her the pharaoh know how the hill oma, this is the crown of this. So this is even even Masood, basically delivering the final blow. In the Battle of boyhood even Massoud was amongst the four core people who never left the side of the

00:37:17 --> 00:37:55

Prophet system. Stay with him from beginning to end, right. This is one of the few people three or four people they stay with the process of from the beginning, they never left his side. And each and every battle, even Massoud participated. We don't have that many stories of the actual incidents within the battles. Again, probably because again, because of his stature and physical size, he's not of like the Hamza's or the the other of the or the rumors or whatnot. Perhaps he's doing whatever needs to be done for his stature, but he is physically there and each and every battle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and

00:37:56 --> 00:38:39

there are so many a hadith that praise Eben Massoud of them, some of them we already mentioned of them. In one of the expeditions, the prophets of Allah while he was sending them asked him was rude for a miswak and remember, even miss rude was the miswak carrier of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Apparently there was no miswak So what did he do? Even was rude climbed out of tree. So the tree is what the miswak is made out of Okay, and he's coming to get and cut a fresh miswak for our Prophet salallahu it he was sending them our process from love the miswak he would do miswak for any reason and all reasons and no reasons before Salah after Salah before we do before entering the house

00:38:39 --> 00:39:20

before going to sleep when waking up. miswak was his regular and he said were it not for the fact that I would think it's too difficult for you, I would have commanded you to use the miswak before every single Salah before every single soda. And in fact, the last thing that he did of this world before he passed away was he used the miswak as the last action of our Prophet system. Before the angel of death came he used the miswak as the hadith of Arusha goes that he used the miswak and he brushed vigorously I've never seen him brush that vigorously before. At the very end of his life solo law. He was setting them so even Massoud knows he wants miswak so he climbs onto the tree and

00:39:20 --> 00:39:59

he's trying to cut some some branch off and at this point in time the wind blows and they've been Miss Rhodes shins become uncovered. Now remember even was rude was not of the most handsome features. And it is said that his shins were now the words used are different. Some say they were curved. Others say that they were very thin. But the point is that they're not manly. Okay, they're not what is expected in a man and whether it was deformed or whether it's extremely thin. One or two of the Sahaba you know they

00:40:00 --> 00:40:44

They they're all human beings they there was laughter coming. Okay, it's like oh look at that just it happens something, something is sometimes it happens. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remarked, are you laughing at his feet as shins for law he on the Day of Judgment they will be heavier than the mountains of hurt you laughing at these, so it shows there must be thin, right must be very thin because the point is being made of heaviness here, okay, so you're laughing at the shins will lie on judgment day, they will be heavier in the scales than the mountains of boyhood, and this is of the highest praise is given to a bin Masood. It also shows his eagerness to jump onto

00:40:44 --> 00:41:30

a tree and begin to climb it up somehow to law mean that he wants to give his money to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and obviously how close he was to the Prophet system. All of this is impacting him one of his most famous students out of coma. He said that the Sahaba used to say that Eben Massoud resemble the manners and demeanor of the process of them the most the manners and demeanor like how he acted, how he interacted the the the respect that people would give him the the way that he would conduct himself. The Sahaba would say even Massoud resemble the Sahaba the the process of the most why because he's been with him so closely for literally from the beginning all

00:41:30 --> 00:42:16

the way to the end of the data. And also the the headings I just mentioned the blessings that we've been bestowed with the process telling you that you have the right to lift up the hijab and listen into my private conversations until I stop you and have the greatest honors of him as rude as a very beautiful Hadith in the Muslim Imam Ahmed that we're gonna mention now very, very beautiful Hadith is really demonstrates how the status of Eman was true that all the Allahu taala and that it that it is narrated that the Prophet system entered the masjid and he it was between Abu Bakar and Omar and even miss rude was reciting the Quran in Salah. So even this road was not aware that behind him is

00:42:16 --> 00:42:44

the Prophet system and vocoder Omar, all three of them were there he doesn't know because he's reciting in sada and they are behind him. And even Massoud began reciting surah, Nisa, and the three of them were listening to a panel of what an audience what an audience, right, even this road is reciting. And you have all three of them listening until he finished 100 verses 100 if sort of the Nyssa and

00:42:45 --> 00:43:02

even was rude, then began to make do so it must be a winter or 200 or something, he began to make dua, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, His Torah or his Toronto asked, you shall be given, ask you shall be given.

00:43:03 --> 00:43:06

Now what was he asking? obachan Rama could not hear.

00:43:07 --> 00:43:51

But the process of said he shall be given it. Allah told him, he shall be given it. Then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said and this is of the highest blessings give it to him. And it's one of my favorite Hadeeth and every all of the people who studied the Quran they know this hadith because it is a very clear Hadith about that the Quran needs to be recited properly. Men or men sutra who endure chorale Parana, burn body Yun Kama owensville kaliakra belterra at Ebony omad. This ID is one of the most famous Hadith when it comes to Tajweed when it comes to the sciences of the Quran, when it comes to reciting the Quran, whoever wishes to read the Koran, 130 yen,

00:43:53 --> 00:43:58

or even like colloquially just freshly plucked,

00:43:59 --> 00:44:46

just as if it came down right now. Which means that you can recite the Quran in a good manner. And you can recite the Quran and not so good of a matter. You can follow the rules and you can mess up on the rules. You can recite it fresh, or you can make it stale with your lack of didgeridoo. That's the point here. Okay, whoever wishes to recite the Quran or have been 30 and freshly newly, you know, how is it fresh out of the oven? We're just giving expressions but is an expression that applies to fruit that is plucked, okay, fresh or on wants to recite it. Let him recite the way it been omit up the recites. And this is the highest praise given to even Massoud that the process of

00:44:46 --> 00:44:54

them said if you want to recite the Quran follow up. So the next morning, Omar decided I'm going to go tell him

00:44:56 --> 00:44:59

what the profitsystem said and asked him what do I did he

00:45:01 --> 00:45:10

What do I do he make because I want to know because the process of said asked you shall be given, asked you shall be given. So Omar rushed to Eben Masood and

00:45:11 --> 00:45:28

asked him Oh, do you know I want to tell you something? What happened yesterday and even was rude said Abu Bakar just came and told me the whole thing and almost said your hummelo abubaker may Allah have mercy no Booker. I never tried to beat him except that he ends up

00:45:29 --> 00:46:15

winning me. Okay, I never tried to race with him except he ends up winning me. So okay, what did you say? What was the what? Tell me? So even Massoud said the drama that I made was a la homogeneous Luca Eman and La yo Ted wanna Eamon la yen fed one more off alpha delta V aka Mohammed and solo la Why do you send them fear the genital hold? What a beautiful idea. Will I ask I asked you a man that will never irritate reconverted a man that will never sees is never going to flip on me. And blessings not aim. Lion fat, they're never going to be cut off. And I asked you moron Hakata Mohammedan sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Fie our little agenda. I don't need to translate nondistrict

00:46:16 --> 00:46:57

right highest of john I want to be with your professor. And the process of what did he say? Center at our center? Hello. This isn't mustard. He now has these blessings. Because the process of said self taught and that is a an expression that basically indicates he has indeed been given it if a large xojo will so this also is appraised for even Masood, another headache that praises Eben Masood is a headache that is famous in Sahih Muslim and others very famous Hadith that Abdullah have nominative and analysis narrated that I have always loved even Massoud ever since I heard the Prophet salallahu it he was send them say

00:46:58 --> 00:47:01

learn the Koran from four people.

00:47:02 --> 00:47:56

Even Mr. Rude, and he began with him. This is not me saying this is Abdullah ibn Masood, and he began with him. Then Saudi molar who the further away have been captained by the majority. Okay, so, four of the Sahaba were specialists in Koran and Quran recitation and Quran, memorization and voice. And number one amongst them was Eben Massoud. So, Eben Miss Ruth is the greatest specialist of Kerala. Like every Sahaba even above is the greatest morphus sin. Okay, why the bingeable is the greatest funny so each one has a certain thing. Ibn Massoud is the greatest audit. And the Profit System is telling us if you want to recite the Quran, fresh recite, like, mapped, and he is telling

00:47:56 --> 00:48:04

us if you're going to learn the Koran, learn it from for people. Number one was urban mushroom number one was urban mustard, and

00:48:06 --> 00:48:09

have the greatest honors of urban mushrooms and

00:48:11 --> 00:48:12

to the best of my knowledge,

00:48:13 --> 00:48:31

as much as I have studied and I could not, maybe I'm wrong in this regard. But to the best of my knowledge. This is only something that Eben Massoud has the honor of no other Sahabi to the best of my knowledge has this honor. And that is that the Prophet system said to Evan Massoud corralejo

00:48:32 --> 00:48:35

recite the Koran to me.

00:48:36 --> 00:49:01

As far as I know, the processing, of course heard Sahaba recite Of course he did, but to ask a specific Sahabi to recite to him. As far as I know this the only Sahabi it corralejo Cora recite the Quran to me. So, the Prophet sallallahu so even Massoud said, he Rasulullah alayka Why do

00:49:02 --> 00:49:19

you want me to recite to you, and it came down to you? How can I recite to you and you are the recipient? And so the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said yes, I am the recipient. What I can have been a smarter home in it, but I love to listen to the Quran from others.

00:49:20 --> 00:49:22

So even Massoud began reciting

00:49:24 --> 00:49:59

Surah Nisa, it appears even Massoud likes within this app, because it's also mentioned in 200. He was doing that and now he's doing it as well. Over here he began reciting surah, Nisa, and he reached the verse in Surah Nisa, for K for ada genomen Coolio met him bisha he then YG in big gala how la shahida. So how will be that day when we bring from every oma a witness, one witness and we will bring you your a pseudo law as a Shaheed for your own people and even more

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

Ruud heard the sobbing of the Profit System and the President said his book his book, stop stop and the process and was crying at this verse. And that was he told him to solve the recitation, meaning that even the Profit System The the the thought of that day, and not just the fear of that day, but the fear of what's going to happen to his oma on that day, not just his own personal but also the responsibility of being in a suit of law and of knowing what's gonna happen his own people. And Allah is saying, how will it be when every oma we bring one Shaheed and you will be the witness will bring against your own people who are getting bigger either hot hula de shahida. Okay, so the

00:50:43 --> 00:50:52

process of began to cry, and the recitation stopped at that point in time. And there are many other blessings as well of them is Hadith and Timothy that

00:50:54 --> 00:51:08

ensued. Have in mind that there's a verse, long verse, I'm just going to summarize that lay silently in your head, you do not want to be multilingual, that the people who believe and do good there is no sin on them regarding what they eat as long as they believe and they have Taqwa and they do good.

00:51:09 --> 00:51:37

Meaning if you eat the * out, there is no sin on you. If you have a man and taco and you do good, and the Prophet says, and I'm set to even miss rude and demean whom you are those amongst them amongst to the Quran. This ayah mentions a man. I'm sorry, taqwa. So the Prophet says Adam, literally testified that Eben Massoud has a man and Armand Sawyer and taqwa unterman, whom you are from this ayah

00:51:38 --> 00:52:19

and other blessings as well. But as we said, the greatest blessings we have the most rude is that the prophets of Salaam told us to learn the Quran from him. And he himself recited the Quran for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Then, of course, the the process of them passed away and even Massoud had a high status amongst the early Sahaba amongst a worker and Omar inside reported that once a visitor came to visit or would have been caught up in his laughter, and Omar was sitting surrounded by all of the seniors so However, this is an outsider, he doesn't know who's who. And then he said, a small short man, knife, thin short man, he began walking through the crowd, and

00:52:19 --> 00:52:39

everybody's making way for him. And Omar began to smile happy seeing him began to smile. And he makes his way straight to Bob. So this is not some stranger has to sit at the back. He has given first row he's given first row and available hottub greeted him and was happy to see him and said

00:52:40 --> 00:53:27

Kenny phone full of Eman and wisdom. KENNETH is like a small closet a small room, meaning you are small in stature, but you have a man an island and he said it three times can if you're you know small room, small storehouse full of a man and there isn't full of a man and the room full of women and men and rubber. we'll hop hop founded the city of Kufa after the conquest remember Kufa is one of the earliest Muslim cities founded and he sent a mod vinyasa to be as governor and he sent Urban mostrou to be its move dish slash all these last year slash teacher so you know you need you need the politician and you need the atom. Okay, you need somebody that will take care of them the

00:53:27 --> 00:54:10

affairs and if somebody to take care of the religious stuff. So he sent our mod to be the leader, and he sent Eben Masaru to be the fuckery. And there are them and the story of Kufa, the newest city, the first city, really that was founded by the Muslims in Iraq, and he sent the people of Kufa message and he sent I have sent a Madiba nasod as your leader and I have sent even Masood as your teacher and know that I have given up my company with Eben Massoud that I wanted, and I've given you that as a gift. In other words, Omar is saying, as a blessing to the people of Kufa realize it's a heavy burden for me to part with him in Missouri. I didn't want to part with him, but I sent him to

00:54:10 --> 00:54:20

you so appreciate him. So even Massoud lived in Kufa and he became famous for Kufa. Even Massoud is associated with Kufa and Kufa

00:54:21 --> 00:55:00

became the first university of Islam, the first madrasa of Islam, after the Prophet system became an Kufa. What do I mean by university or madrasa? Don't think of a structure or a building. Think of people when I say a madrasa I don't mean a building. I mean, people who form generations of students, and in early Islam, famous Sahaba founded quote, unquote, universities, by universities, we don't mean a building and classrooms, we mean students, and even miss road was the first and one of the best and earliest

00:55:00 --> 00:55:42

Abbas was also a founder in Macau and even our boss had his own school and Medina as well. And these were the three main cities in early Islam, Mecca, Medina and Kufa. Right then eventually there will be smaller schools in Damascus as well that opened up what not, but Kufa was of the earliest schools. And even Massoud taught a generation of Tabby Ron. And in fact, even younger Sahaba studied with him. And he taught some of the greatest stab your own that perhaps maybe in this room, maybe many of you would not know of them. But if you were students of knowledge who studied or Hadith or any science, these bureaus are etched in the memory of even a first year student at any madrasa.

00:55:43 --> 00:56:24

Everybody's heard of these names that have come up in the face, and us what we need is either a, or B that sent money Masaru Ahmed Venetia bill, these are names that are famous to all students of knowledge, because these were their odema of the tab your own use with the greatest of your own. And these names that I mentioned, they're all stars in their own rights, and each one of them is a student of Elon Musk route. So one of the roadmaps of the past said by the students you shall recognize the teacher and a business route produced a galaxy of rula after him, which shows who he was, when was rude produced an entire generation of Rama enabled Miss rude became known for

00:56:25 --> 00:56:39

teaching filk reciting the Quran, and also narrating a hadith even though his students would complain that he doesn't give enough. They wanted more at ease. But why didn't he give how do we learn from one once outcome? It tells us what happened at once.

00:56:40 --> 00:57:01

Even Massoud said, cause Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is about to tell him a hadith. Paulo sudo Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then I'll come I said, even Massoud stopped. We saw the blood drained from his face, his walking stick began to tremble. He began to cry, sweat formed. And then he said,

00:57:03 --> 00:57:13

the profitsystem said something like this with a similar wording with the meaning of which then he went on. What just happens? Did you figure out or not?

00:57:16 --> 00:57:17

Not he didn't remember.

00:57:19 --> 00:57:21

He didn't want to

00:57:23 --> 00:58:11

make an unintentional mistake. When he says or a supervisor seldom. Then he realized what if I miss a word? What if I say something by meaning, which is allowed, completely allowed, but it's even more shrewd. And he realizes I can't go on without making these disclaimers or something similar to this or with the wording like this or with the meaning of witches? Then he went on. So this betrays the reason why even was rude did not narrate more Hadith. Now, by the way, even Massoud narrated a lot of Hadith. In fact, he's of the top 10 narrators and in most cinema, Mohamad, I bought for you volume seven. So volume six and volume seven of the 50 volumes is just even Massoud. Okay, two

00:58:11 --> 00:59:01

entire volumes is even was added. That's it. Imagine how many Hadith is narrated. But he's not of the top five in a bus has double or triple his narrations, even though even our bus is much younger than him. Why? Because even Massoud so how many does he have either around 800 850 less than nine around 850 50 to 358, or 50 is a lot. It's in the top 10 is not at the top five because the top seven have 1000 and more memory dimension the names last time Okay, so the top seven so however they have more than 1000 each, and the top three have 4000 each have more than 4000 each. So even was rude isn't the top 10 he could have narrated much more, but it is this fear of making a mistake that

00:59:01 --> 00:59:08

he held back and one of his most famous statements of investors famous statements is the following he said

00:59:11 --> 00:59:57

I swear by him in whose hands is my soul or I swear by besides by him besides when there is no God, ma'am in Surah Chiquita Bella he Illa Juana and mo Anan desolate, there is not a single surah except that I know where it came down. woman I attend fi kitabi La Ilaha Alamo female one zero Zilla, and there is not a single ayah except that I know, why was it revealed and who was it real for? And if there was anybody that knew more Koran than I did, and camels could reach this person, I would be the first to be with him, meaning and he's telling this to his students not as tough not to be arrogant or boastful, but to show them how much you know so that they can appreciate and this is

00:59:57 --> 00:59:59

allowed with conditions and what was really

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

He's basically saying that

01:00:02 --> 01:00:30

he knows each and every suit on where it came down and he knows each Ayah Why did Allah reveal it? Imagine and he's an eyewitness is an eyewitness. In a hadith also reporting a body, variable famous Hadith, he said, I memorized 70 sutras directly from the mouth of the process of them to my ear.

01:00:31 --> 01:00:33

That's half the Quran.

01:00:34 --> 01:01:18

I memorize 70 sutras directly, Minh fie rasulillah from the mouth of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So he is the greatest of the Sahaba no Sahabi had more knowledge of the of the Quran. Then, even Massoud and he stayed in Kufa. As we said, he started this madrasa his students remain after him throughout the time of Roman on top, then in the time of arithmetic, and I found some minor tensions broke out between arithmetic rhodiola one and even more so than all the Allahu taala. And these tensions, as you know, we mentioned this many, many times, it's best not to dwell too deeply on them. The Sahaba in the end of the day are the best human beings, and they're the best generation

01:01:18 --> 01:01:48

but they are human beings at the end of the day and human beings all the time. They get these minor issues between them, it's impossible that it doesn't happen. It happens in your company, in your workplace in your boardrooms, in every place in the world. Minor frictions take place and this is the reality of being human beings. And there were some minor tensions between Earth mind and I find it rude. And one of the things I mentioned, perhaps some things are best to not say but one of the things it is important to quote because

01:01:49 --> 01:02:03

unfortunate unfortunately, orientalist or people that don't believe in the Quran, they attempt to cast doubt about the Quran through the stories. They mentioned. That Eben Massoud objected to Earth man's compilation of the most half.

01:02:04 --> 01:02:13

And this is one of the sources of tension without a doubt. And this is very true. Even Massoud was not too happy about many things.

01:02:14 --> 01:02:21

One of them was that he felt that they even sabbat was not the best, most qualified person.

01:02:22 --> 01:02:29

And he said, who is eight he was a little child playing with two ponytails when I came to Medina.

01:02:30 --> 01:03:12

But it's true he was from even musters perspective, right. So, you know, this is the reality of human beings that you know, even Mr. Rude has a valid point, but there's also a bias and aroma. And Abubakar song saw in Zaid when he was rude did not see. And that is that yes, he was young, but his memory and the fact that he was there when the process was caught on to debris, and a host of other factors made him the primary candidate. But it's human nature one day this chosen, some other people might feel why not me. It's human nature. Nothing is this is not an Islamic, right. So they might get a little bit extra critical. When a little bit of criticism would have done the job. It's human

01:03:12 --> 01:03:26

nature as well. And as well, then the notion of evenness road was perhaps the first Sahabi perhaps the first to have almost a full copy of the Quran in his own handwriting.

01:03:28 --> 01:03:31

Almost because no one had a full copy until

01:03:32 --> 01:03:33


01:03:34 --> 01:03:35


01:03:36 --> 01:03:51

abubaker was the first forgotten worker was the first earthman copied a workers right, so it was rude had an almost complete copy, now respond standardizes a copy and sends it out everywhere and then says what?

01:03:53 --> 01:03:58

burn all the rest. Now if it was true, his most prized possession is what?

01:03:59 --> 01:04:03

Put yourself in his shoes. How would you feel? See, here's the point.

01:04:04 --> 01:04:14

If Emma's roads, objections, you have to be even more shrewd to have them. And from his perspective, he has every right to

01:04:15 --> 01:04:40

if somebody else comes along and nobody and has the same objections, we would say Who are you? Exactly? Right. So even Mr. rhodiola when he gets a blank check to be frustrated at these things because he is even Masaru I mean, after you have this credentials that he does, you have every right to say, why should my must have the burnt up, I'm not going to give it

01:04:41 --> 01:04:50

to put yourself in his shoes, right? He is not a stranger or nobody. He is the most knowledgeable,

01:04:51 --> 01:04:59

memorize 70 pseudos directly, etc, etc. And this this is my life's work. I'm not going to hand it over. There's going to be tensions isn't it right

01:05:00 --> 01:05:42

That's exactly what's happening. So, again, it's human nature and Subhanallah Ibn Katia mentions that even Kathy mentions that sort of man told him leave Kufa because obviously when you're far away from the the political center, it's possible to cause more agitation people will use so come back to Medina come under my umbrella for a Come with me, so that I can we can see each other and whatnot. So even Massoud, his students came to him begged him not to leave, they said, We will defend, you know, stay wants to keep your must have. And even Massoud said, that reminded when I found is my leader, and he has a right to be obeyed. And our prophets are seldom said a seminary work bar. So

01:05:42 --> 01:05:48

look, this shows no matter what irritation or what not. when push comes to shove, you're going to follow the law.

01:05:50 --> 01:06:08

Okay, this is even Massoud our process that I've said here and obey. And he is our leader. And I know the process, some told me there will be trials and fit and I don't want to open the door to trials and fit and I'm going to go back. So he quietly went back in Catherine mentioned that

01:06:09 --> 01:06:47

earthman eventually placated him, explain things to him, and he was satisfied. And this is what we expect. Because you know, the fact of the matter is, and we all know this, when you're far away and you hear stuff, you can make a big deal out of it. When you are face to face, and you discuss your concerns with the other party, and you get it out and have a back and forth, then things calm down. Right? Even though this is in Kufa, and he hears these commandments, right, get rid of your most of you have to hide your most often we were going to get rid of all the mishaps of the city, many of which are written by his own students think about that. Okay, they must be handed over to the

01:06:47 --> 01:07:24

governor. And you have to make new copies. Now, it's not easy to make a new copy from the most half we have sent and even mystery was like why I know what the process that I'm said. You don't need to go through you know you can understand. So, it is said that when he got back to Medina, that is when Earth might have an iPhone explained to him and and he was placated with the philosophy of arithmetic. But I found in this regard, so he lived in Medina and he passed away in the time of birth might have been fine. He did not live to see the fit and he did not live to the Civil War. He did not live to any of that time a lot saved him that and he passed away in the year 32, after his

01:07:24 --> 01:07:29

euro 32 after his euro and so he is buried in Buckley and his grave is in Berkeley.

01:07:30 --> 01:08:15

And it is mentioned that when added to the a la one moved to Kufa and made Kufa his capital, the students of Yvan Massoud came to it. And it began to ask them questions about about to see it about Koran, until they realized that our little the loved one is testing them. How much did they take from a big mushroom and they passed the test. And they then praise their teacher Evan Massoud, and they said the students this is now you know, 10 years after the death of him was rude. This is when Ollie moves to Kufa and makes it as capital and even Madrid students are there and his students outcome and others they said, We have never seen anyone better in manners, or gentler in teaching or

01:08:15 --> 01:09:03

greater as a companion to be with, then even mushrooms are the law of data. This is his students testifying in front of a minimum Romanian ID of nearly 30. And it said, an eye to amisha head to all that you have said and even more that you have not said, I bear witness about even more good that you have not said and what a beautiful legacy, you know Subhanallah when we leave this earth, what will people think of me and you? What legacy will we have left? What will our friends and our students say about us? Or will they even remember us? So for his students to be so praiseworthy is a sign of a true good nature. And for this positive memories to be left right amongst the students.

01:09:03 --> 01:09:38

And I do the alarm saying what Anusha hidden I am also witnessed and even more than this, I will testify about even mystery more than a decade after he's gone. But the memory of immaturity remained amongst the students of even Massoud of poverty, that famous historian, the first early historian of Islam, the greatest of the early historians, and then all of a sudden he said, out of all of the Sahaba none of them listen to this. None of them had better students who preserved his opinions and carried on his teachings than even miss route.

01:09:39 --> 01:09:53

He didn't say he was the greatest, so happy because there are a group of them. He's one of them. But Eben misrule was blessed with something even the greater Sahaba than him were not blessed with and that his

01:09:54 --> 01:09:55


01:09:56 --> 01:09:59

No other Sahabi had a fateful course.

01:10:00 --> 01:10:42

Have students who preserved his teachings and carried on his legacy, then it was rude and have the greatest students. It said was al comma a bill case. And this is a very famous name, I'll come in face and Subhanallah you know, brothers and sisters, I'll tell you as well as a person who studied history and we study our older man we study what not, there are many arola in history. They were legends, but a lot for whatever wisdom did not give them students. So they came and they went, and all we have left is their names and their legends. And it is said that there were a ma that were maybe even greater than some of the founders of the Medina.

01:10:43 --> 01:10:47

But they didn't have students to preserve their film.

01:10:48 --> 01:11:29

And Allah Xhosa blessed certain people to have core students, you need students to preserve your legacy. If you don't have students, then you're not going to have the legacy that is left. And so even Massoud was one of those who had that legacy. Just to give you one simple example inshallah with this, we conclude. So even Massoud, we said, founded a university and every generation in Kufa had these massive names, these galaxies these stars, so his greatest student was alchemy, and alchemy. His greatest student was Abraham and Abraham is called the rocky rock, Abraham and Nakai. His most famous student was hammered him Navy SEAL a man and hammered him and ever sued him and his

01:11:29 --> 01:11:57

most famous student was a boy Howdy, Norman Eben sabot. So, Abu hanifa direct Silsila literally every chain three people, every chain every person is a superstar. superstar. How Madame w Suleiman, Ibrahima Naka, I'll come. These are giants in their fields. Don't be surprised when you're going to get to somebody like Abu hanifa. So Abu hanifa

01:11:59 --> 01:12:44

is essentially coming straight from Yvan Massoud, much of it and from outcome as well outcome produced a lot of fatawa and translating down to Abu hanifa and Abu hanifa. Of course, the fifth Iraq, also not just that, but in Kerala as well. All of you should know there are 10 carats of the Quran 10 out of the Quran. And the Quran that we recite is called halfs analysis helps analysis and where does have and where does Austin live? And what is there is not both halves and Allison Allison is from Iraq. He is from Kufa. And so our recitation that we recite I have any jazz as you know, Quran as well. All of us who have jazz and have been awesome, it goes back to even Massoud.

01:12:46 --> 01:13:27

Our recitation that is the most popular in the world have sent out some is like 90% of the oma only a desire and you know, Libya and others they have pockets of Kaduna and wash and whatnot Otherwise, the rest of the oma by and large is have son Allison, right. And Alison was Kara goes back to even miss rude. It is as if the profitsystem wanted Eben mushrooms to become the popular one. And essentially that is the hero that we recite to this day meaning it's have sent out some that goes back to even mushroom. So it will mushroom radi Allahu taala and is of the greatest Sahaba of the earliest of converts of the most knowledgeable know the most knowledgeable when it comes to Quranic

01:13:27 --> 01:14:08

recitation when it comes to care of the Quran, and even Masaru rhodiola Tada and is also the founder of one of the earliest Madeira says the mothers of Kufa and it produced many many luminaries most famous that everybody knows is, well honey for Norman had been sabbat or mo low data. And without a shallow data, we come to the conclusion of Eben Massoud. And again, the I can't do 802 volumes of this. I mean, there's no point and that's a whole two years halaqa right there. So we're really not gonna do any Hadith. And inshallah, next week, we'll do one more Sahabi and then I will be taking a break. I'll explain next week. So next week, we'll have it and then there'll be one week off, and

01:14:08 --> 01:14:14

then we'll come back and tell after that. Any quick questions about urban myths? rhodiola one, yes. Good.

01:14:19 --> 01:14:21

The question is did Eben Massoud

01:14:22 --> 01:14:46

attend the final output of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam? There seems to be a version of events in which he did Yes. But the more popular opinion is that it was not even sure there was eight So there seems to be a little bit of ambiguity. There is wondering why that mentioned even was rude. But it is not the most famous one. So Allah knows best. Yes.

01:14:52 --> 01:14:53


01:14:55 --> 01:14:56


01:14:58 --> 01:15:00

So that was one of the issues of today.

01:15:01 --> 01:15:19

Now why wasn't he an organizer? This is a question that we will not know. Because we don't know. It may be was logistics maybe not needed right then and there and Kufa would take a month and a half to come or whatever. So he's like, okay, let's just get this done. Allah knows, I mean, but Tandy, so this is one of the sources Yes, go ahead.

01:15:30 --> 01:15:35

The prophet SAW some explicitly said, an immortal to feel koresh.

01:15:37 --> 01:15:57

And this is one of those heady that the average Muslim hears and like No, No, that can't be true. Study feel. Sometimes there are things that are not according to your understanding of Islam. Sahih Muslim Hadith, si body also has references to this is absolutely authentic. And that's why the vast majority of Roma have said that

01:15:59 --> 01:16:39

one of the conditions of a halifa is that he be from the whorish Alma what dimensions This and other people mentioned this, this is the shaft very much of the embodiment of the Maliki madhhab even has some has some discussion about this, I will not go there. But there is essentially pretty much the vast majority say this, now will a non otoshi be disqualified from being a halifa when the Ottomans came to power, there was a debate about this and then by and large, they said okay, you know what, it's not ideal. But once he's taken charge, then he's taken charge. But up until the Ottomans came in 1517 was when they officially transferred from the mem Luke's So essentially, for 1000 years, the

01:16:39 --> 01:17:07

philosopher was with koresh right 900 something years after that was the holidays. So even Massoud is not takatoshi and that's what workers do and Omar and themselves said that look, we know that the Prophet system said we are the Omar ah and you are the wizard Well, they said that the philosophers in the hurry so we are the O'Meara and you are the wizard Ah, okay, so, this is one of the reasons Sharla with this inshallah we'll start for today and then continue next executive summary.

This video by Shaykh Yasir enamors us with a deep understanding on the life and times of greatest Sahaba, Abdullah Ibn Masud RA.

Abdullah Ibn Masud was one of the earliest converts to Islam, the most knowledgeable when it came to Quranic recitation and the founder of the earliest Madrasas – The Kufa Madrasa- which produced distinguished luminaries, chief amongst whom was Abu Hanifa (rahimahullah). He is attributed with short stature, thin body, very dark skin and having a sparse beard.

He as also the first to have recited the Holy Qur’an by reciting Surah Rahman publicly in front of the Kaaba which was a huge step in that time with the Quraysh revolting every move made in the way of Islam. He was penalised heavily by being beaten and bruised badly but that did not deter him the least and he vowed to recite the Qur’an in the same place the next day no matter what the result. Abdullah Ibn Abbas RA had the ultimate prestige of having ended the life of Abu Jahl in the battle of Badr.

The first meeting with the Prophet ﷺ was an interesting one and he quotes: I was a young shepherd boy responsible for the sheep of Uqbah lbn Abu Mu’ait. The Prophet ﷺ once came with Abu Bakr and said, ‘O boy, do you have milk for us to drink?’ and I said, ‘I can’t let you drink their milk.’ The Prophet ﷺ said, ‘Do you have a virgin sheep that has never mated with a male?’ I said, ‘Yes’ and brought it to them. The Prophet ﷺ caught it and stroked its udder and prayed to Allah till the udder filled. Abu Bakr brought him a concave rock into which he milked the sheep. Abu Bakr drank the milk, and then after that the Prophet said to the udder, ‘Shrink,’ and it did. I went to the Prophet after this incident and said to him, ‘Teach me this kind of talk.’ The Prophet ﷺ said, ‘You are already a learned boy.’

Eventually, thus, it came as no surprise when he was so mesmerized with the Prophet ﷺ that he earned himself the trust and companionship of the Messenger of Allah SAW in every walk of life, for instance, he would accompany him in all his journeys and expeditions,Waking the Prophet ﷺ, carrying the Prophet’s staff, siwak, slippers, bedroll, and water for purification amongst many other chores. It is said that he bore marked resemblance to the Prophet ﷺ in his traits and character. Thus, he was awarded with the nicknames of Saheb-e-Siwak (bearer of the siwak), Saheb-e-Nalain (bearer of the slippers), Saheb-e-Mutahara (bearer of the water) and also Saheb-e-Wisadah (bearer of the bedroll).

There are many Hadith which were narrated with Abdullah Ibn Masud as reference. The Prophet ﷺ said, ‘Learn the Qur’an from four people, Abdullah Ibn Masood RA, Salim Maula Abi Huzaifah RA, Ubayy Ibn Kaab  RA and Muaz Ibn Jabal RA.’ The Prophet has also said, ‘Read the Qur’an in the same manner as Abdullah Ibn Masood teaches.’

Umar RA once said: ‘One night the Messenger of Allah was having a conversation with Abu Bakr RA about the situation of Muslims. I was with them. When the Prophet ﷺ left, we left with him also and as we passed through the mosque, there was a man standing in Prayer whom we did not recognize. The Prophet stood and listened to him, then turned to us and said,”Whoever wants to read the Qur’an as fresh as when it was revealed, then let him read according to the recitation of Ibn Umm Abd.” After the Prayer, as Abdullah Ibn Masood رضى الله تعالى عنه sat making supplications, the Prophet said, “Ask and it will be given to you. Ask and it will be given to you.”this showed us that Abdullah Ibn Masud was the epitome of perfection in the Qirat Al Qur’an.

For more such amazing anecdotes and stories, do listen to the video intently and be enlightened.
