Episode Notes

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi commences this video delving into the life and times of another great Sahaba,Abdullah Ibn Umar RA, the son of the second Caliph of Islam, Umar Ibn Al Khattab RA and Zaynab Bint Madhun.

The most striking feature and noble trait that merited Ibn Umar RA was his generosity, asceticism and piety all encompassed into a magnanimous example of neutrality and unbiasedness. He could always face people with the absolute truth even when he was getting opposed in the wake of oppression with an unwavering attitude. His behaviour towards the Hujjaj is an example enough to prove this aspect of Ibn Umar RA.

He was a man who considered wealth only a means to satisfy the bare necessities of life and never indulged in exuberance, extravagance and simplicity the estimated value of all his belongings stood at no more than a hundred dirhams, which showed that anything beyond a meagre value was instantly given away as charity.

An interesting illustration of his simplicity is elucidated in the following incident. One of his acquaintances from Khurasan once brought him a fine and elegant thawb:”I have brought this thawb for you from Khurasan,” he said. “It would certainly bring coolness to your eyes. I suggest that you take off these coarse clothes you have and put on this beautiful thawb.””Show it to me then,” said Abdullah and on touching it he asked: “Is it silk?” “No, it is cotton,” replied his friend.For a little while, Abdullah Ibn Umar RA was pleased. Then he pushed away the thawb and said: “No! I am afraid for myself. I fear that it shall make arrogant and boastful. And God does not love the arrogant boaster.”

Abdullah Ibn Umar RA participated in every battle starting from the Battle of Khandaq. Abdullah bin Umar RA had the most prestigious and coveted position in the wake of Tafsir, Fiqh and the Hadith. He has narrated 2630 hadiths,thus, entailing his dominance as the narrator of the most Hadiths second only to Abu Hurayrah RA.

Abdullah Ibn Umar RA was once sleeping in the mosque when he dreamt that two angels took him to Hell and he began to say “I take refuge in Allah from Hell. I take refuge in Allah from Hell. I take refuge in Allah from Hell.Then an angel met us and told me not to be afraid. He then told them to leave me.” Hafsa RA, who was married to the Prophet SAW narrated one of his dreams to the Prophet SAW who told her: “Abdullah is a good man. I wish he prayed the night prayers.” Post that conversation, Abdullah Ibn Umar RA hardly sleep and spend most of his lifetime in prayers and fasting.

Abdullah Ibn Umar left for his heavenly abode in 73 H at the age of 86 years.

00:00:20--> 00:00:56

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam on say the Mohammed in while he was on page 9am about today's Hello from shalom Giada we are continuing with the famous Sahaba and in particular we're doing the scholars in the Hadith narrators amongst them. So today inshallah tada we will be doing Abdullah in Omar Ebner hottub radi Allahu taala. And who have been Omar as is commonly known Abdullah bin Omar. And of course, I've already talked about his father, I'm going to go hop in over 10 cars, so we know who his father is, we're not going to go over the lineage. All of this has been done. So let's begin directly with our

00:00:57--> 00:01:45

topic for today, Abdullah bin Omar Abdullah bin Omar was born before the hedgerows by 10 years, pretty much exactly by 10 years. We know this, because even though we rarely know the dates of birth, in this case, we know exactly how, because he's the one who told us that I presented myself to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the Battle of butter. But I was 13. So he rejected me. So then I presented myself at the Battle of Osho, then I was 14, he still rejected me, then the first battle I participated in was in hand up when I was 15. And he allowed me to participate. Now pause here 13 1415 doesn't make sense fully, because, but that and hand up don't have only two years

00:01:45--> 00:02:26

between them, however, may be in the very beginning of the 13th year and the very end of his 15th year, you can just make it plausible in reality, obviously budget and offer to have one year between them, but then offered 100 has two years between it right? So it's a bit of a stretch, but the point is he's giving us a guesstimate that okay, I was 15 by the time of 100. Okay, so 100 takes place five years after the hedgerow is 15 years old. Therefore, he was born 10 years before the Hydra. Okay, so we have pretty much an exact birth year for Abdullah hepatoma. So he himself is the one who knows this is also shows us and I mentioned this when we did the battles of the process, Adam, that

00:02:26--> 00:03:06

15 was considered to be adulthood back in those days, okay. And it's not just over there, even in America in other countries even 100 years ago, you know, it wasn't 1818 is again, relatively recent, where the 18 has been made the age of adulthood. Really, it's a cultural thing as anybody who studies history and anthropology knows. So in those days 15 you were a young man, fully a young man. And this shows us that biologically, intellectually, it is possible for a 15 year old to be considered an adult, we unfortunately continue to treat them like kids. So that's why we have this adolescence phase which, as I've said many times, it's actually an awkward phase here. They should

00:03:06--> 00:03:24

be treated like an adult and yet we treat them like kids. Anyway, um, the Abdullah miromar was born 10 years before the hedgerow we already know his necessity. We already know his tribe. All of this has been done through his father or his mother. Was Xena Binti, ma Varun, Xena, Binti mother own.

00:03:25--> 00:04:12

We don't know much about her. She probably died in mcca. We have really nothing much about her life. All that we know is her family was a pious family ie the mother own family, and most of her brothers and sisters converted early Islam and her brother IE Abdullah Omar's uncle from his mother, her brother was one of the most famous of the Sahaba of that generation. Roseman, Eben mother own and we mentioned his name a number of times there might have been well, we mentioned him in the Macan era. There's nothing to mention in the Medina era because he was the first Sahabi to die in Medina from the Mahajan. So earthman Eben Malone was the first Sahabi to die a natural death in Medina after the

00:04:12--> 00:04:41

hedgerow and he's the first person to be buried in Buckley as well. Okay, the first of the Muslims obviously, there was a graveyard from before Islam, but the first Muslim to be buried in Bolivia is earthman even mother own This is the sister of the sister of Xena, the mother of Abdullah Okay, so is that clear? So, Abdullah bin Omar his mother is Xena, Binti mother. Now Abdullah bin Omar was born 10 years before they hit her up. When did our mobile hotdog convert? We don't know when exact year.

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

What we do know is that it is relatively early but not of the first batches or Omar was not of the first batches of converts. It was after that another because he's the one who marched out another one. Remember, he's the one who marched without another war and that's where he converted to Islam. So it is after

00:05:00--> 00:05:24

The first three, four or five years of the data. So as we mentioned is not of the first batch he is an early batch, ie the first half of them in phase one the persecution was pretty bad. That's when I converted we all remember his story. What does all of this mean? It means for us for Abdullah had been Omar that Abdullah had been Omar never remembered a time of Jamelia and his family,

00:05:25--> 00:06:11

even if he was born, and his father was a pagan at the time. By the time Abdullah bin Omar gains any consciousness any memory for sure his family is Muslim. Okay. So we can say either he was born into a Muslim family, or his earliest memories were of Islam. In other words, he did not have any paganism background whatsoever. Okay, he was born and the family is already well, not more, because we don't know exactly. But as soon as he gains consciousness as soon as the memories go back, his father and his mother and his whole family are Muslims. We don't have as far as I could tell a single narration from Makkah, why should we he's only four or 567 years old. So we don't have

00:06:11--> 00:06:48

anything narrated about him in Makkah, how could he have any major role to play he is still too young to have any role to play. And of course, I don't need to tell you that Abdullah bin Omar is of the greatest of the Sahaba of the late generation of the Sahaba. He's not of the great Sahaba when he's young, because he's still a youngster. Right. Just like Abdullah hibben Ibis. Same with Abdullah bin Omar. These were the luminaries of a later generation, the last batch of the great Sahaba This is Abdullah bin Omar Abdullah bin Ibis. These are the people we talked about. Okay. So Abdullah bin Ahmed is considered to be of the younger Sahaba, the second Baba, not of the highest

00:06:48--> 00:07:32

Robocop in terms of age. But in terms of rank, we're going to come to of his era, he was of the greatest SCI, he of course migrates with or whatever they'll call Bob to Medina, he's 10 years old. And again, we don't have anything narrated at that early age. But what we do know is that he presented himself at the Battle of butter, and he was turned away, he presented with a battle of words, and he was turned away. So this shows, even at the age of 11, or 12 of the law have been almost aspirations are immensely high. And he's volunteering because brother was volunteering, and ohad was defensive. And in both of them he's showing up when the process them says, okay, whoever's

00:07:32--> 00:08:15

ready to come tomorrow morning, Abdullah have been Armada comes, and he wants to participate in bedden, despite the fact that he's 11 or 12 years old. And so panelo how different are the use of that era from our own youth of our time, while LaHood was done while he took land? So Abdullah bin Omar attended the Battle of hunda as his first battle, and then he attended every single battle after that, okay, he attended the Treaty of Arabia, they are to ridhwan, the conquest of Mecca, the Battle of the Battle of hoonah, and all of the future battles He attended with the Prophet salallahu idea he was setting them. We also have a very few narrations in his lifetime with the Prophet

00:08:15--> 00:08:56

sallallahu sallam. Remember, he's just a very young man, when the processes is that his prime and Medina Abdullah bin Omar is becoming now a teenager. So he's a very young man at this time, and he lives a long life. So he will become one of the major Sahaba, who's alive at a very late stage of Islam relatively to the Sahaba. But now, he's just a young man, a teenager, so obviously he's not going to have a prominent role in the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. However, one thing connected him with the Prophet Sall Allahu Allah who has sent him directly and that is his sister have saw his sister half saw because half son him were full sisters full brother and sister. Okay,

00:08:56--> 00:09:35

same mother. So his sister hafsa is the mother of the believers. So obviously, he can he's one of the few men who can walk into that chamber at least half size chamber houses house right? without a job. One of the very few who can walk into the chamber of the prophets are seldom when he's not there and that is have sucked. So he narrates that I was a young man and I would sleep in the masjid. Meaning he doesn't have a wife. He doesn't have his own house. So he would just spend the time with the process and then go to sleep in the masjid. I was a young man, I would sleep in the masjid. And one day I saw a dream or one night I saw a dream that I was holding, find silk establish

00:09:35--> 00:09:59

find silk. And wherever I wanted to go in Jannah the silk would take me there. So he dreams he says agenda and he's able to go wherever he wants to go with this silk unable to fly me there. Then two men came to me or two beings that said two entities obviously. Men they're angels to two beings came to me

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

Johnny's Nan to came to me. And they wanted to take me as if to jahannam. But then an angel came and said, don't go. And so I did not go. So he was prevented from going. And I woke up, and I narrated the dream to have saw now pause here. So he saw himself in Jenna flying around. The two angels wanted to take him to jahannam but they didn't. So this is the tension of every human being, but his side of the scales is already made clear. Where was he? His engine? Okay, where did the angel the other side is trying to take him angels, another angel stop says No, do not go. Don't go there and he does not go. Okay. So he wakes up, and he tells his sister have saw and he tells it to the

00:10:54--> 00:11:08

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this hadith in Sahih Bukhari and it is the highest praise of Eben Romana. The highest praise of Eman aroma, near Mirage guru Eben Omar lo Cornejo como la.

00:11:09--> 00:11:16

Near Mr. Raja even Omar, low Kana yokomen Lane, what a great man is urban Omar.

00:11:17--> 00:11:26

If only he were to pray tahajjud now, the two sentences are not causally related when we read them in English.

00:11:27--> 00:11:38

The if only becomes a conditional clause No, that's not how it's meant. Low here is little money. It's two separate sentences. What a great man is even Omar

00:11:39--> 00:12:13

I wish she would pray to her. Like that's how we can translate it. Not. He would be a great man if he prayed to 100 Okay, that's not the correct translation. What a great man is even Omar How I wish he would pray to her good meaning what if he prayed to her Jude he would become far far more greater than he is now. Okay, lo gana yo como la. Even Omar heard this hadith from hausa and he rarely slept for the rest of his life.

00:12:15--> 00:12:34

Kinda Yo, yo yo como Laila Kula, who in la Sierra. That's what the rewired say, after he heard this Hadith, the rest of his life, the majority of the nights was in 200, other than a little bit when he needed to sleep. Okay. This also shows us that a moment Buhari has a narration that

00:12:35--> 00:12:39

salata, tahajjud is of the greatest ways to save yourself from Jana.

00:12:40--> 00:13:20

Because even Omar is being told he should pray. jahannam says that fertilizer prayed to hedges so that they had them will then become callous completely from him. Okay, so. So that's the head, dude. Of course, I don't need to tell you the football of the hedgehog. And for those of us who are not praying every single night, pretty much for almost all of us, at least prayed once in a while, try your best to bring in something in your life once every week or weeks or whatever, just to break the head a little bit. So what a great man is in or near Mr. Rogers, even Omar This is the highest gear that the process of gives to even though he's a good man, I wish he would also pray to had good luck

00:13:20--> 00:14:02

and a little money. I wish it would be good if he would pray yokomen lay. And after this, as we said he rarely slept at all. Even when he was traveling, he would not give up to hedge and even when he was sick, he would try his best to pray to God. Even Omar was one of the famous added of the Sahaba. There are a group of Sahaba called da da da da, right. Abdullah bin Omar Abdullah bin Abbas Abdullah, they're all ibid Abdullah bin Zubaydah, and they were known for all of the above data, well known for many things. The most important when you say the other day of the Sahaba. The first thing that should come to all of your mind is extreme worship, along with extreme asceticism of the

00:14:02--> 00:14:43

dunya. All of the above data were like this. When you say the iveragh data, the first thing that comes to mind from all of them, excessive worship by excess of a positive, not negative, right, lots of 200 and sila and cm, they're at the forefront, and none of them built for themselves massive houses or palaces or what not no interest in the world. All of them are there. Abdullah Abdullah bin Omar was exactly that namesake. He's one of the famous ibid of the Sahaba and Abdullah have been Omar, the one thing that he is known for over and over again, is his extreme

00:14:44--> 00:15:00

piety of worship, always he's fasting. There are many reports when you read them, that he was invited to a wedding feast. He was invited to somebody's house and he would come and sit and then not eat when he would be asked why he would say I am sorry. I am fasting

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

And in fact, in one narration

00:15:03--> 00:15:05

subtitle it is narrated that

00:15:07--> 00:15:10

zubayr roadwatch zubayr, who is the brother of

00:15:11--> 00:15:12

Abdullah Ivan Zubair

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

roadworthiness debate

00:15:16--> 00:15:40

proposed to his daughter, Abdullah and Omar's daughter while Abdullah was doing toe off Mashallah for the proposal Hmm. But that's because Abdullah and Omar, his free time was typically when he was doing it off. Okay. At the time in his life, he lived in mud because we're going to come to so when he's doing the office, that's when people can come and talk to him. Okay, so otowa even azubi proposes to

00:15:41--> 00:15:45

Abdullah bin Omar his daughter means I want to marry your daughter

00:15:46--> 00:16:29

and Abdullah bin Omar takes over back home and right then and there does Danica Mashallah Tabata Cola, right. So, wrote what then brings a feast. This is his daughter's wedding. And it goes on fasting today, sorry, he can't even eat what he didn't eat on the edema of his own daughter. Because he would always be pretty much fasting. So and so many narrations at once he came to a neighbor's feast wedding is happening. He is invited, he comes, he puts his hand in the food and he put it out without taking any food. And it goes this is for the Baraka and to respond to the dour of the walima because our processor said when you are invited to whatever then respond meaning if you're able to

00:16:30--> 00:17:08

so it's sooner to respond to a Tao of a redeemer. This is for the edema Dawa. This is for Baraka, but I am fasting so I'm not going to eat any stood up and he walked away, right meaning I came you wanted me to come this is the Baraka I may do I need to leave. This was his den that this was his habit almost all the time fasting, his servants and we learned from the inner households of his he would spend most of the night awake as we said, somebody asked one of his students one of his students and his servant not fair. Not fair is one of his main mode. I've been lucky enough here was his main servant who became the greatest scholar of Medina of the next generation, right. And now

00:17:08--> 00:17:53

fear becomes the greatest teacher of Imam Malik even as the fuckery of Medina. And so one of the greatest chains of Hadith Malik I know even Omar Okay, this is the highest chain of Hadith ever. Malik I never found enough here was a slave from Africa. But his knowledge made him the greatest athlete of Medina and the greatest Lama would study with him and Mr. Malik became a mathematic big because he studied at the feet of enough, fair enough, it was the servant or the slave of urban remote, who was then freed by it. But he was he was freed by Eben aroma, and became who he became. So somebody asked not very described in Oman, his worship said, Forget about it, you can't do it. So

00:17:53--> 00:18:00

describe it at least let me try. So he said the whole night. For every tour, aka a new will do

00:18:01--> 00:18:05

between the two prayers, the most half?

00:18:06--> 00:18:07

What are you going to do?

00:18:08--> 00:18:47

So forget about it, you're not even gonna be able to do it. For every tour, aka noodle, just because it was a blessing in and of itself, right. And then between when he's taking a rest it is caught on. So this is Abdullah bin Omar. And this just we're just beginning. Not surprisingly, that type of obsessive asceticism, he was not interested in getting married. And when he found out hafsa insisted you're going to get married. So have saw, insisted that he gets married. And then when she was still reluctant, the way that she convinced him Subhanallah was with the ages of children, right? That she said,

00:18:48--> 00:18:56

once you have your children, if they die before you it is on kiama day, and if they live after you it is to offer you in your grave.

00:18:58--> 00:19:36

So he was then convinced to get married. So Panama, like literally, he had to be convinced by the Baraka and by the blessings of children if they die, and remember, mortality was very high in those days, right? And we are Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah it's very rare for a young child to die without any reason. You know, in our grandmother's generation, we all know, you know, the mortality rates was what one out of every 400 or 55 Kids died back then it was even higher. So it's understood you're going to have some children that die in those days. So helps us said if your child dies, that's a great reward from Allah. And if your child lives after you Well, he's gonna make off for

00:19:36--> 00:20:00

you after your death. So that was the incentive for Abdullah in order to get married. And as for his wife, later on, some neighbors and whatnot complained to about her to her criticized his wife's like, you don't take care of him enough. You don't serve him enough. And she said What is there to serve him? Every time I cook food for him. He invites the public

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

got out of the neighborhood and they eat.

00:20:02--> 00:20:37

So what woman is going to continue like cooking when her food is going to go outside? Right? So it's like, what's the point? Every time I cook, right, then he invites the Pokhara and they come and they eat the food. So obviously human nature is human nature's like, Okay, fine. If that's what you want to do, then, you know, there's nobody cooking, right? And there are multiple again incidents. So why do we even sadness double coffee has a whopping 20 page biography of our beloved robot like it's one of the longest inside there's one of the earliest books, and there's so many the Wyatt about Abdullah bin and Omar one day I believe in Omar.

00:20:39--> 00:21:22

He told his wife that today, you know, he must have been fasting when it was today, I desire some fish, can you get some fish from the market? So his wife went prepared, cook the meal, very happy. Finally, we have now he's wanting it. And right before the store, a beggar comes knocking on the door. And he says, Give the fish to the beggar. The wife says, Come on, just hit one. Let's just have this. He goes, nope. This give it to the beggar. He insisted that, you know, x MLA, like he made her head it made her swear that look, you're going to have to give this to the beggar. So this was the ethos or the selflessness that Abdullah had been or demonstrated after the death of the

00:21:22--> 00:22:04

Prophet sallallahu. I think he was setting them up with a lot of an old model participated for around 10 years or so in pretty much all of the major battles was a very interesting figure or persona, that he participated in each and every segment of conquest, conquest of the Muslim world back then, he was of the armies that opened Syria, then he traveled to the other side, and he participated in at all and then in Iran. Then he went further beyond that and went to Azerbaijan, and what is the Russian Republic now? Then he went exact opposite side and participated in Egypt and North Africa, one of the few Sahaba, who essentially is spanning the globe, and opening up the doors

00:22:04--> 00:22:27

of Islam where they still are, to this day, and it is Omar who in Sahiba. Holly the famous narration we've all heard it it is it Omar that he was stuck in Azerbaijan for six months. And he prayed to us for six months. He has the chapter that whoever prays closer for six months, right? Or he had no I mean, that's not your chapter, anybody that has the extraction from it. The one who suffered he prays for six months meaning

00:22:28--> 00:23:12

even oma prayed six months on the cluster two to two. Why? Because at the forefront of the battlefield, when you're on the front lines, you are allowed to pray faster because you don't know when you're going to leave. Right? You don't know when the army is going to attack when you have to move somewhere else. So you are here Hawkman masaf and you are taking the ruling homosassa even if months or years go by so that's the famous story what can a bit Omar? Right yeah, sort of solid wood that is city ashore six months and the spraying costs are non stop, because that is the sudden when you're Mustafa to bury costs, and that's demonstrates the the military passion of Abdullah bin Omar.

00:23:13--> 00:23:20

He then returned to Medina and lived in Medina during the cleanup of his own father or mother of no hot Bob. And

00:23:22--> 00:23:51

Bob did not appoint him to any position of power, perhaps because he saw that his son was not interested or perhaps or whatever the football was scared that somebody might accuse me of nepotism whatever he did not appoint to son to any position, except when he was stabbed to death. And while he is bleeding to death, he appoints his son to the first unofficial official position. What was the first position that I've delivered on what was appointed to

00:23:55--> 00:24:51

so the Shura was decided by the six and Abdullah ibn Omar was told you will be a part of the Shura while a select Amina militia and you have no vote and you have no chance of being the immediate or the leader, but you will manage the Shura. Right so he chose the most neutral person that nobody doubted he has no interest in becoming, you know, political office, and some handler for the for his entire life of the law had been Omar never held any public office. One of the few Sahaba even have to live in a bus for a short period was the governor of Kufa for a short period, Abdullah bin Omar he refused everything and he adamantly refused and the time of the month, although the law one

00:24:51--> 00:25:00

earthman said that you're going to become the call the the judge of Medina the most prestigious judgeship is being given

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

To Abdullah bin Omar, and he said, I can't don't don't put me in this house. Now, they wouldn't say I can that would be saying no to the halifa. But they beg them, please reconsider. I'm not qualified Don't do this. So Abdullah said, No, you will do it. And he continued to insist I cannot do it. I don't want to do it until he said, Why? Then he said, because I heard the prophet SAW said him say that. There are three called these three types of judges. Two of them are in jahannam. And one of them is the version of infant so there's multiple it like there's the version that are more narrated, one of them shall not be punished. So it's not even like the good old agenda, okay, not

00:25:41--> 00:26:11

going to be punished. So the ones that go to two gentlemen, are the one that's bribed, or the one that is unjust, right? So basically, either his house or his money, one of the two, his desires or his money somehow sways him, he judges unjustly. And then the one who does it properly shall not be punished. So he goes, I don't want to be of this camp. So one Earth might have been a fan saw how insistent event or mode was, he relented, and he let it go without becoming the holiday of Medina, even

00:26:12--> 00:26:49

during the time of earthman rhodiola Juan, so he did not take any position at all of power. So he just remained worshiping Allah azza wa jal in Medina. And collecting his knowledge he was to become of the greatest narratives of Hadith says we're going to mention. And of course, even Omar, most of his ahaadeeth come from the other Sahaba. Right. Remember, he's of the smaller Sahaba, just like even a bus, the majority of his Hadeeth is not heard directly from the prophets who send the majority live is heard from his father, from Earth man from the other Sahaba that are alive at the time of him as rude. And he then absorbs this knowledge and he passes it down later on, when Earth

00:26:49--> 00:27:31

might have been I found was surrounded by the protesters, in Oman, put on his armor and stood guard multiple days of the protest. And in fact, it is said the last day before he died in Roma to put on his armor twice to go to the house of Earth man, and volunteer to protect him. As you know, the morning that he died earthman insisted everybody leave. But if no one was over those who was with him in the last batch of those who wanted to defend against earthman, the attackers of earthman, even I found, then, of course, I needed the law, one becomes the halifa. And one of the things I really wanted to do was honor the love of Thailand was to remove more out of the law, one from the

00:27:31--> 00:28:11

governorship of Syria, as you know, there was lots of tensions which would eventually result in the Battle of Sofia and the greatest Civil War of early Islam. So Ali wanted to know the law. 100 wanted to remove malware. And so he said to me, Omar, I will appoint you Governor over Sham, Sham was the most the prized province, right, Jerusalem. And this is the Roman Empire. reminder, this was literally the Roman Empire literally, when you think of Sham at that point in time. It's barely been a few years, majority of people that are still Roman, they're speaking Latin, right? The greatest buildings, the greatest architecture, the greatest aqueducts, the grid, everything. This is without

00:28:11--> 00:28:53

the Sham, it is fertile, right? So it has wealth, it has money, it has prestige. And even Omar is appointed, you are going to be the Emir, because he realized it really rhodiola and realized, I need to appoint my best, so that nobody can complain who the governor is going to be. I need to appoint somebody whom you just have no argument against, because I'm asking why we had to leave. And while he has a lot of followers and a lot of people, so who does he chews up the law, even Omar, but for days, when Omar continued to beg and beg and beg, and Alito the law would have none of it not like Earth man, cuz he needed even

00:28:55--> 00:29:20

if an armada went one to have saw the mother of the believers, of course, she is now obviously widowed, the process passed away. She is now of course, the mothers at this time are highly regarded. They're highly respected, she begs to his sister, please make shefa with amirul momineen with lllt lavon. I cannot be the Amir. So hafsa gets involved and have sends a message that please excuse my brother from governorship.

00:29:21--> 00:29:59

Nothing early or the other one would not budge. And this demonstrates the power of the venerable, really, because he recognized who this man is, you recognize I need somebody like him and my most sensitive and my most powerful province. So what did I do? In the middle of the night, he jumped on his horse and fled to Makkah, literally ran away. He literally ran away from power, literally. And he sent a message, please excuse me. I cannot take this position and I am fleeing to the bottom

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

Now the how dumb is the head on? Why is the head on called the harem?

00:30:06--> 00:30:08

Mandela who can Amina

00:30:09--> 00:30:22

protection. That's the point of Makkah which we as Muslims don't understand in this day and age is just completely lost the how dumb is a protection. Everything is how long in it. Whoever enters it

00:30:23--> 00:31:07

has become sacred has become blessed and protected. He has entered the home. So even Omar is fleeing to the harem seeking refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala that Look, I don't want this position of power. And that's when I realized, okay, I can't force him beyond this. So he relented. So even Omar as we said, never held a day of office in his life. Never. He literally one of the few people jumped on a horse and literally ran away from the most prestigious governorship that was available at that time. And he then during the time of the fitna, obviously it's the time of it now.

00:31:09--> 00:31:29

And the Battle of the Germans gonna take place the Battle of Safina is going to take place the two worst civil wars, in Oman becomes one of the leaders of the small group of Sahaba, the elite group of Sahaba the group that even taymiyah and others say the best of the Sahaba in this regard,

00:31:30--> 00:32:11

they avoided the entire debacle from beginning to end they lock their doors one of the Sahaba literally took his sword and broke it literally because he said that means I can't fight now I don't have any weapons because in those days, you had your sword and you kept it for a generation or two literally broke his sword. So many of them they you know, some of them it is said even stopped going to the masjid during times of calling for jihad. What not they literally became incognito or what low key and have the greatest of them. There's a whole bunch of them like around 1520 of them also have but have the greatest of them was Abdullah bin Omar meaning at the forefront by by greatest I

00:32:11--> 00:32:56

mean, the most famous batch obviously again, understand the Dalai Lama is greater than normal in terms of ranking. But in this issue. Many of the later scholars say that the the best position was that if an Omar and those of a similar nature Abdullah Muhammad, and others they avoided the fitna. By the will also all of the above data, they avoided fighting Abdullah bin abass accompany the army of Allah but he didn't fight against Arusha. He did not fight, but he was the governor of Kufa. So he kind of sorta like there was some outlying outwardly, but never did he raise a sword, and none of the ABA dilla participated in the fitna as well. There's another characteristic of the Abdullah

00:32:56--> 00:33:42

Abdullah bin Omar. And of course, it's not just that many of the famous Sahaba of the Messiah definitely will cos he was the greatest national overshadow one of the eye shadow. He refused to get involved in the fitness either maybe will cause and of them is not that he was involved, but I was involved of them was Abu Musab Ashanti and Osama bin Zayed and others Abdullah bin Salah salam, the Rabbi of Medina, they refuse to get involved in the fitna between Huawei and Ali rhodiola, hotellin and Abdullah bin as well as amongst them. And he has many famous statements in this regard. He said when his students asked him, he said, Whoever says hi yada, yada. I will come. Whoever says hey,

00:33:42--> 00:33:46

Island fella, I will come whoever says hey, I'd like

00:33:47--> 00:33:55

to go fight another Muslim. I will refuse. I don't care who it is. I'm not gonna go. And

00:33:56--> 00:34:26

inside Bahati. It is said that one So remember, he's living during all of these Fitton. He dies 7374 Ah, one of the last of the great Sahaba to die. So he's living through everything he sees all of these fits in. And throughout all of them. He's one of the very, very, very few who remains 110% neutral. Nobody. He's criticized by both camps for his neutrality.

00:34:27--> 00:34:59

both camps criticized because they need somebody like Abdullah bin robot on their site, and he refuses to join either side. So inside Bahati, one of the supporters of one of the factions comes to him and wants to prod him says, doesn't Allah say, we'll call to whom? hetalia takuna fitna and fight them until there is no more fitna. So join us and fight until there is no more fitna. And he said, Woe to you. Thank you. Let's go omak woe to you may your mother lose you. Don't you understand what fitna is in this verse fits

00:35:00--> 00:35:41

That was when the Profit System was fighting against the co founder of orange. And the choice was either you enter [???]ake or Cofer or worship the idols right, or you have to fight them. This is the fitness of the verse, don't quote me this verse and use it against Muslims, okay, which is of the characteristics really, as we know, of later misguided groups. So don't use this verse. Now. The fitna, he says, is not the people fighting over power or milk? That's not fitna. That's not the fitna. In this verse, The fitna is schilke and fight them until you're not forced to do ship. That's how the verse will translate. We'll call the loom Atletico fitna and fight them until the fitna is

00:35:41--> 00:36:07

eliminated. What is the fitna forced to worship a false god. Okay, so even Omar said Woe to you, may your mother lose you, are you calling me this verse when I know when it came down when it was revealed, it was meant for the process of fighting the courage. And it is also mentioned during this timeframe as well, that during the arbitration of while we evaluated the law one, obviously, there's a lot of tension between both of these Sahaba. And as I have said,

00:36:09--> 00:36:26

We gloss over this era without going into too much detail. And we expect that Allah shall forgive both of these parties, the one who was on the better HD high will get a double reward, the one who made a mistake will still get one reward. And there are statements and issues that we kind of glossed over.

00:36:27--> 00:37:14

And it's not nice to dwell on them, sometimes you have to mention them for these secondary reasons. So it is said that while we are on the love line before the arbitration, some harsh words came from his mouth against his opponent, and he said, Who is this person who is daring to challenge me? Who does he think he is? Okay. So you know, this is political power and tension, things are said, and May Allah forgive the both sides of them. So this is said about the other party. Even Omar later said to his students, that was the only time some desire of this world entered my heart, meaning to fight for power. And I wish to say I was about to say, you know, who is the one against you? It is

00:37:14--> 00:37:20

the one who beat you and your father until you were forced to accept Islam?

00:37:21--> 00:37:29

Meaning, who are you? And who is your father? And when did you guys accept Islam? And who is the other person?

00:37:31--> 00:38:13

So there is no comparison at all. Right? So even Omar said that I was so close to responding and getting involved in politics that he's trying to say, when he says the love of this world, he doesn't mean become the king or the halifa means to get involved in politics, right? I was so close to taking sides. But then he says, Then I thought of gender and the fruits of gender. And I withheld some kind of love. So even to say this, he only says it decades later, when everybody's long gone and dead. And he tells his students a story about what happened when he was you know, a younger man, right? So this is a bit of a model the a lot one that he did not want to take sides in this report

00:38:13--> 00:38:56

in this issue at all. And when I did all the love wine was killed. Even Omar was of course in the Hejaz. And so the people came through there was chaos when it was killed, there was chaos, and eventually hasn't becomes the halifa on one side, and while he declares himself the leaf on the other, but before Hasson was elected, people were looking around, Who should we go, and the first person they came to was Abdullah bin Omar, and they said to him, and to say you do not want to say hey, Tina, you are our leader and the son of our previous leader, your father, Omar, you are our leader, and you are the son of our leader, and everybody loves you. No one will complain about you.

00:38:56--> 00:39:03

So come forth, Nobel Europa, and come forward, we'll give you the beta. Okay, so even Omar was offered the philosopher

00:39:04--> 00:39:55

by the people, which is how you should get the hell off. Okay. He was offered the healer for by the people on a silver platter. And he was said that he was told and which is very true. No one is going to criticize you. You were going to be able to rule and who can what complaint Can anybody bring against you from previous what complaint? So even Omar replied, I swear by Allah, not a single drop of blood will be shed by me or for me, or because of me, as long as I have life never. Because he realized now this is after Ali and more aware, this is after all of the fitna. There is no way bloodshed is going to stop now and it didn't. There is no way. So he said over my dead body

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

basically, because if I were to take charge, they will still be blood.

00:40:00--> 00:40:08

And if there is going to be blood I have to answer to Allah for that. Never. Remember that would be the famous Mufasa and Mohammed death and

00:40:10--> 00:40:43

historian, remember that have been said that had he been given the oath. On that time, no person could have ever complained or criticized or objected to his becoming the halifa. On that time, the one person who had absolutely a clean slate to take over would have been Abdullah bin Omar, no one was more neutral amongst all sides. But he knew if he were to take it, the bloodshed would not stop.

00:40:44--> 00:41:19

The criticism would not come immediately. But then eventually it would happen then there would be war. And he said, No, nothing. And He therefore maintained his neutrality. He has a beautiful statement. He said, The example with respect to this fitna and us is like a group of people traveling and a sandstorm overtakes them. And so they're blinded. Some of them go right, some of them go left, and they get lost. But we stayed where we are. And we stay here until Allah lifts the stand storm from us.

00:41:20--> 00:42:01

These sides are youngsters of the kurush. This is even more saying these are youngsters of the harsh pause here on Isla de la one is a little bit older than him not that much older. And while we as well is a little bit older than him, they are not from the senior in terms of age, they're not of the senior senior in terms of rank of the age, Adi is young relatively, and while we as young from terms of the Sahaba, right, so he's saying these are the youngsters of the kurush. And now they are fighting over power and overdue Nia and all they are fighting for in my eyes is not worth the sandals that I'm wearing.

00:42:03--> 00:42:31

So from his perspective, Now, obviously this is a harsh assessment of ideal of a loved one. But he has the right even almost it is not me speaking, this is a model. So give him the right to say what he is saying. This even Omar saying, These are Hillman, Cornish, these are the kids of Quraysh. They're fighting over mulk. And all they're fighting over is not worth my two sandals in my eyes. I don't care about it. I don't want it at all. So I've done that have been I'm not had that. That

00:42:32--> 00:42:36

personal shall CEO and the internal if you like,

00:42:37--> 00:43:18

Is that enough to feel like I don't care about power. My my vice slippers are more beloved to me. My sandals are more beloved to me than all that they are fighting over. However, this does not mean that he did not speak the truth. Even if he didn't take sides. He spoke the truth. And like I said, both sides were frustrated at him. Both sides. were frustrated at him and with him during the life of Maria de la one more are we in a bin Omar did not get along because he wanted enormous extra support. And a bin Omar was simply quiet. You see, even Omar did not revolt against Huawei. Right. But neither was he waving the flag.

00:43:19--> 00:44:08

He was simply living his life. And outwardly the bay is from La Jolla, but not very, is not very, you know overt or keen about it. And everybody senses this. And so there was tension between our the law and and while we're gifted, even over 100,000 dinars write a fortune. And a few days later, the command comes you must give my your back to my son because you're much more aware. He announced in his lifetime that my son shall be the next Khalifa after me. And even Omar returned the entire gift instantaneously to him and said that, essentially, do you think my religion is that cheap in my eyes that I'll sell it for 100,000 dirhams? Even though in the end, he gave his bio, but now no money.

00:44:08--> 00:44:37

Right? Do you think we're gonna sell my religion to for a fortune? Not meaning he didn't call it a fortune. He said, You think my religion is that cheap? He called the 100,000 cheap. So do you think I'm going to sell my religion for that cheap as well? In the time of yazeed as you know, Abdullah is obeyed. rose up to power. You know, we did the story very briefly. Perhaps when I get to have the liberty to debate I'll mention it in more detail. Actually, I must sometime I will have to get to that.

00:44:39--> 00:44:59

But realize that there was an insurrection in the early ommaya time. And one of the Sahaba Abdullah Zubair right, the older brother of Ottawa, the son of a smart Vince abacha, so the nephew of Arusha, Abdullah Zubair rose up and revolted against us and against the old

00:45:00--> 00:45:51

My years and he declared a lava, which for a period of time was larger and stronger than the Omega caliphate. And it appeared that he would then take over the Umayyad Caliphate. But then, the oma years found their right hand tyrant, how judge Eben used to have a circle fee. Okay. And Allah subhanaw taala will for wisdom known to him that had judge essentially do all the dirty work for the Romanians. And so in the time of during the time of the oma years, as we said, things really went downhill. And there was much tension between obviously I go to the debate and the Romanians. And Abdullah bin Omar said that I will not participate in this fitna and whoever shall win, I will pray

00:45:51--> 00:46:32

behind him. Doesn't matter to me. Whoever wins I will pray behind him. And he said during this time of fitna, whoever is the leader shall be the Imam and shall be the one who collects the cup. Realize in the good old days of Islam, this lasted until the I busted time, the oma years followed this advice is changed forever. During the Obama years time, the halifa and the governor and the ruler and the mayor, whoever was the political leader was also the religious leader, at least in terms of hotaka and Juma and other religious stuff. Okay. So whoever was the governor would give the whole debate on Friday, it was a sign of being governor. Okay, whoever was the mayor of the town would

00:46:32--> 00:46:38

give the hot button the main message. Okay. The halifa would give the whole debate in the capital.

00:46:40--> 00:47:22

This lasted for a period of time, then they are bastards got rid of it. And we thank Allah they did because Can you imagine some of our modern presidents trying to give the husband our hotel a villa. So we thank Allah, Yanni, we have recordings of some of them reciting Quran Hola. Hola villa. And it's like, hey, so it's probably best that you know that that thing changed. But in the Omega time, the leader is giving the whole tuba and reciting the leading the sada and so even Abdullah bin Ahmad is saying, we will pray behind any of them it doesn't matter. And we will give Zakat because again at that time, Zakat is collected by the ruler as well. And again, just a footnote here, so the oma

00:47:22--> 00:47:49

he adds the oma he adds, definitely, they have a lot of negatives, but even Damien has a profound statement. He says, the negatives of the oma years, the blood on their hands, the fitna that they did, is not much worse than what later generations did. But the problem comes the generation they did it, too, was the best generation.

00:47:50--> 00:48:34

In other words, in terms of sheer bloodshed, you may use or like other dynasties, it's not as if the other dynasties were any cleaner. Okay, terms of civil war in terms of fighting insurrections, the Mayas as well, like others, but what is the difference? Who are the Romanians fighting? I believe in this debate, for example, right? And who are they killing the Sahaba and the great tab your own? So because the people they're fighting are so great. Obviously, the perception is that human ears are so bad, whereas in reality they are as even taymiyah says they have good and they have bad. And the good of the rulers of Jamia says the good of the rulers is like the mountains. Sorry, the evil of

00:48:34--> 00:49:16

the rulers like the mountains. But so is there good. That's what even taymiyah said, the evil of the rulers is like the mountains. But so is there good. And that's what we thank Allah. We don't have leadership because honestly, it is a fitna, it is a it is a major problem. It corrupts. And the potential for evil becomes infinite. But so to the potential for good as well also increases manifold right? One policy, one policy can change so many things in people's lives. And vice versa. One policy can bring so much harm. So the Obama years were really a lot has been said about them. This is not a defense of the moment. Yes, there's no question they have a lot of, of some semi

00:49:16--> 00:49:25

sacred blood on their hands. There's no question about it. But the fact of the matter is that the bulk of Islamic conquests that we still are

00:49:27--> 00:50:00

in a state of glory because of the borders of Islam to this day, by and large, were defined and demarcated by the Romanians. That's not something that we can take lightly. Okay. The oma years were the ones who reached hinden avant Aslan in Pakistan, today's Pakistan, they're the ones who reached North Africa, the entire strip of North Africa, where it stops between Islamic and non non Muslim is the Romanians essentially right? The Middle East the map of it is the oma yet okay. The the under those. It is the

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

My years, okay, small pockets here and there. The Ottomans did Bosnia and Yugoslavia a little bit and you know, Greece, they had it for a little while, okay. But it was the oma years by and large who essentially carved out the modern Muslim world as we know it today. So we need to put all of this negative in light of their positives as as well. So in any case, back to our story of Abdullah bin Omar, so when Hadji bin use of fought against Abdullah Abdullah Zubaydah, and by the way, even as debated with Omar as well, there was tension between the two. Because in Omar, even though he liked him and zubaid as a person, he disagreed with Evans Ubers policy of breaking away from the

00:50:43--> 00:51:30

Romanians and he's living under illness obey. So that's awkward, very awkward. Okay. So he's living in Medina and maccha essentially lived most of his life in the Hejaz, then he's living in Makkah, and he is not supportive of women as Zubair is breaking away. And yet he's not breaking away from Venezuela or from the oma yet so again, he's maintaining this complete neutrality. So even as a very is not happy with him. While he is not happy with him, he is not happy with him. None of the political figures is really happy with it been rumored when Hadji when used to finally defeat even as obeyed and he takes over the governorship of the Hijaz and of course, one of the most cruelest

00:51:30--> 00:52:08

episodes I've referenced this three four times we all know this by now is not shocking to you. Abdullah in his job he is executed by hijack even use of in the city of Mecca. And he is hanged on a pillar we call it crucifixion but it's not a cross it's simply just hang it's not a Christian context is simply his put on a post, which was done to terrify to make an example of to to show that look what happens when you fight against us. He was put on that post in front of the gamma for three days. Okay, so that people really go off and they see the body of one of the greatest Sahaba over there and this is the son of

00:52:11--> 00:52:55

one and as smart and as smart is alive. His mother is alive in Makkah at the time. She is now 95 years old, blind, but she's her swit is as sharp as it was, and her anger and whatnot and she lashes out her tongue got hijacked one head judge comes to visit a smart but that's a separate story when we when we get toggled on zero we'll talk about that story. But it is reported in Sahih Muslim so his head is assigned Muslim. So if an Omar right now is 82 years old, 81 years old, at the end of his life, okay? Eben zubayr has been killed. And his body is pegged in front of the Kaaba. And so now there are some servants I forgot leads even Omar to ivans various body and even Omar becomes

00:52:55--> 00:53:32

very emotional, very emotional, why would he not I mean, this is even if there was disagreement, still, even Zubaydah, no matter if they're on the same wavelength and mentality, they disagreed about politics, they did not disagree about religion and religious values. And the other side does not have any type of religion compared to this site. Right. So he becomes very emotional. And he says, Yeah, about Habib, which was the cornea of Ivanova. Didn't I tell you by Allah, that you shouldn't do this? Yeah. Whoa, babe. Didn't I tell you why Allah shouldn't do this. He's speaking to a corpse. Three times. Yeah, by the way, well, I didn't I tell you do not do this. Like, look what

00:53:32--> 00:54:17

has happened now. Don't you should not have done this. Then he goes, but if it has happened now, that is all done for neusiedl law. I testify in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That to the best of my knowledge, you were so warm and a woman you were somebody who fasted and you were prayed and you're good to your relatives and family, by Allah, a nation of whom you are the worst, is indeed a very blessed nation. If you were the worst of the nation, that nation is blessed. Did you get the points of praise? Okay, if you're the lowest hamdulillah we are lucky to have you. Okay, so he says this too, even as obeyed at the death of Ignis obey. And if an Omar now becomes the senior most

00:54:17--> 00:54:58

Sahabi alive under the governorship of head judge, and that was not pleasant to see, because head judge was head judge had had been or could not remain quiet. And so there are multiple instances of abuse, Omar being stood up by his service because again, he's in his 80s now, right and speaking out against hijab multiple times. So much so that hijas became extremely irritated and stuff for a lot even threatened to kill him or to punish him and whatnot. And obviously he did not do that he would not do it to him and Omar, but the threat came from Hajaj and on one time famous had mentioned in many books of so now that had judge

00:55:00--> 00:55:46

gave the reed harbor and any like rulers he just wants to talk about himself and talk and talk and talk and talk and the time for Salah is getting late and so it almost stands up in the audience and says here fula and not even yeah Amira er fula and Yanni Hey you like so and so outside ah and he ignores even after he sits down and then stands up again or causes during the says yeah phoolan Salah once again ignores him then for the third time still ignores him. Then the fourth time even Omar says I will pray Will you all follow behind me like I don't care about you. I have to offer Salah now. Everybody stood up to pray behind him in Oman on the day and had judges there right when

00:55:46--> 00:56:21

had judge sees nobody's paying attention to me and they're all gonna pray behind him and Omar so then he finishes the hook but rushes down and starts to solder. So then they pray behind him right so high judge then finishes the hood but then he calls in Omar and he says How dare you do this would you don't you have any what not? And if an Omar simply says to him that we came to pray sada so when the time for Salah comes, then lead us in salah and then listen to this. Oh, this is in the audience. Back Back. Kamata Shah,

00:56:24--> 00:56:27

Arabs have you heard of Baku? Baku, Baku, Baku.

00:56:29--> 00:56:35

So force ha Arabic has forgotten a term that us bases have adopted.

00:56:37--> 00:56:40

Okay, we speak better Bach Bach than you guys do.

00:56:41--> 00:56:45

That's the DC joke. Sorry, guys. No one box box like us.

00:56:47--> 00:57:25

The term Baka baka ubuck qu is classical Arabic goes back to ancient classical Arabic. But from what I understand, all Arabs have forgotten this term. Okay. And it is exactly as this is have preserved it buck buck, right is exactly the meaning. Right. And even Omar says to hedge judge so just like we have the term buck buck, right. You know what it means us Pakistani Indians in the audience had judges being told by Eben Amato once we have prayed, you do your buck buck as much as you want.

00:57:26--> 00:57:40

This is literally what he's telling him. Okay, buck, buck, come out to show right go and do your buck buck as much as you want. Right? So buck buck. Oh, Arabs. Let me explain to you what to do here. Because now buck buck is an order the term is lost. It's Arabic meaning complete.

00:57:41--> 00:57:42

It would

00:57:44--> 00:58:00

you know, you're gonna have to ask to ODU linguists is the author of Bach was from Bach, Bach. I don't know. This is a very deep linguistic for the Safa Chol question. And perhaps one day we will talk about this book was when the time comes. But for now,

00:58:01--> 00:58:43

the term of course, as this is we don't know the cost. So we forgotten the cost. We made it buck buck. It's not buck buck. It's buckle buckle buche buche buche buche buche buche cotton for whom a buck. So this is the classical buck buck. Anyway, enough buck buck, let's get back to our class. Evan are set to head Judo your buck buck as much as you want after you do your Salah. So this shows us he wasn't a coward. Throughout all of these years, he's maintaining neutrality but he's no coward. He speaks the truth when the truth needs to be spoken. During some point in this time, we don't know exactly when most likely during the time of yazeed or maybe even why we don't know that

00:58:43--> 00:59:22

Oh, my ears wanted to test even more so we go back a little bit we don't know exactly what do you always wanted to test a normal because they were worried about the potential of another insurrection and they're highlighting who can give us threat and they've been around what is on the top of the list so they send omniplan us to test him and I would have done analysis Why don't an analysis was a big na supporter as you know minister MP a minute Prime Minister you could call it whatever else was you know while he is right no matter the Although an homage mine we respect them. I'm gonna bounce was definitely from that camp. So I'm live now says to even Omar, why don't you announce yourself as

00:59:22--> 01:00:00

a candidate, and people will willingly give you the oath. You are so happy and you are the son of a middle minion who is more deserving than you are. So this is like a trap that he wants to see does not have political aspirations. And even Omar said that will law he if all of mankind were gone and only three people were left, I would not want to be a mute over them. Much less was it is now Okay, meaning if the end of the world takes place, I still don't want any political power. So Ammar was very happy. So he realized even Omar is not interested in

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

Political dominion. So he said, Okay, if hamdulillah in that case, why don't you support any he doesn't mention why we are by name it goes, the one whom everybody has agreed upon, except a small count. Many Cubans are very tight. Why don't you support the one whom the majority has agreed upon? And we will take care of you and your family and give you large tracts of land and and and

01:00:26--> 01:00:46

politics, this is politics. Okay. Even Omar became so angry, he said, Oh, Phil luck, get out of my house and do not come back. Get out and do not come back. Do you think that? Do you think that my religion will be purchased with your golden silver,

01:00:47--> 01:01:30

you think your golden silver can purchase my Dean, I will leave this dunya with pure hands, meaning with no corruption on my hand, I will leave this dunya with nothing on my hands. And rumors came. And again, these are things best left not said too much. But when this news reached back and whatnot, the other leader wanted to harm even Omar, because this is an insult. And this is very dangerous and whatnot. But he was told that that would be impossible, because the people would protect him. And the people would, you know, fight and whatnot. So he did not want to then do that. So it'd be normal. The law one maintained consistently his neutrality. And along with his worship,

01:01:30--> 01:01:54

along with his worship, he became known amongst the Sahaba. He is known for one thing, he is known for following the exact custom and culture and manners of the Prophet system down to the dot down to dotting the i's and crossing the T's, as they say, no Sahabi imitated the Prophet sallallahu. I send them more passionately and more,

01:01:56--> 01:02:34

even in matters that you don't have to imitate him. So when he would go between Mecca and Medina, he would take the same path of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would walk in the same place, even if now another road has been made doesn't matter, he's going to go and walk in the path literally walk in the path of the Profit System. And it is reported that if an owner would not unbutton would unbutton his top button. Why, because once I saw the processor with his button, and open Hollis the rest of his life, and another time he he would dye his his hair with a type of color, which was at the time he was doing it. It had lost its its

01:02:35--> 01:03:09

cultural, you know, because fads come and go, even at the time of the process. And there were fads that come and go within the next generation, they're gone. So he's dyeing his hair with a mixture of zafferano and this and that in an exotic color for the timeframe. And the people are like, why are you dyeing your hair like this. So he said, I saw the profits of some dye his hair means 60 years ago, 50 years ago, this was the color that he used, I'm going to use it for the rest of my life. And he would not wear the equivalent of a belt, there was obviously not a bell, but they had something that they would use for the visa. Because once he saw the process of them simply tied to his arm,

01:03:09--> 01:03:36

you know how they the longi that they do like this, right? So he would, so he never worked for the rest of his life. Now this, of course, many of the other Sahaba disagreed with this level of following because this level of following. It's not the purpose our processing did not unbutton his buttons so that people can then unbutton their buttons, right. It's just something he just whatever, it's not something you're so but you cannot criticize even Omar for his love, can you

01:03:37--> 01:04:10

you may from a Philippine perspective, say he did things that are not necessarily so not to follow, okay, but you cannot criticize him for his love. This was even Omar amongst all of the Sahaba He is known for this the most. He has that reputation of literally an issue of the wife of the Prophet sallallahu I said him herself says no one followed the footsteps of the processor, literally and metaphorically. When you say footsteps, I mean literally, then like even normal. This is our issue saying no one followed the footsteps like even Omar and along with his

01:04:12--> 01:04:48

eagerness for the Sunnah. He was also known as we said, already, from his very frugal and simple lifestyle. He lived a very, very simple life. As we said, all of the above did all of the above data, especially even Omar and one we haven't done yet. Abdullah have an omniplan house, these two the son of algorithms, there's a big difference between the father and the son in this case, right? I'm gonna pronounce was with Maui, his son Abdullah, is one of the Abdullah, believe it or not his own son shun politics and what does he want to do about it? So, even Omar and I believe that these two in particular they live very, very frugal lives,

01:04:50--> 01:04:58

even though because he's an early convert his salary from the Treasury was a massive amount he was on the higher pay grades if you remember

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

what Omar

01:05:00--> 01:05:43

Actually Obama instituted flat pay rate and then Omar changed it to gradation. And Abdullah bin Omar because he's a muhajir. And because he is an immigrant from early Islam and whatnot, so his pay grade is relatively high. And by the time you know of the lawyers and whatnot, so he's the only one getting this massive fortune, everybody else has passed away. So he's getting a monthly stipend of significance. And yet multiple occasions, it was seen in the marketplace that an aroma is purchasing the harshest remnants of bread leftover from yesterday, like the lowest type of bread, and he was asked about this, and he would say, all the money has been given. And one person even narrates and

01:05:43--> 01:06:27

inside mentions this that the day after his paycheck arrived, like the money is coming in the next day. He is buying that bread. And so he asked his wife what got asked away from remember what's going on. And she said literally the whole night he spent in giving the money. So all that money that is coming in, he has no desire, he's simply giving it up to the poor. Once in his life, a delegation came to visit him to learn from him and whatnot. And somebody brought him a fine gift from Horace Mann. Okay. The land of Persia gave him a fine job. He had never seen anything like it. He felt it and he goes, is this headier? Is this silk? They said no, it is something called cotton,

01:06:27--> 01:06:34

cotton. Something else called Cockney, I've never felt cotton before. He kept on feeling it. Right kept on feeling it. Then he said,

01:06:35--> 01:06:48

I cannot take it because I fear for myself that this might make me feel proud and arrogant. And Allah does not love the arrogant. So he rejected what we wear all the time.

01:06:49--> 01:07:04

And he was content with his course will leave me with this. On another occasion, one of his students brought him a jar of medicine from a doctor in Iraq, because this is a new medication they have for any time you have indigestion of the stomach

01:07:05--> 01:07:51

and it almost had indigestion of the stomach. for 40 years I have never eaten to my full once. I don't suffer from these things like you. For 40 years. I've never filled my stomach he does not eat like that. One of his students what a famous narrator's name would have been a modern famous tabular everybody from Hades knows him. mamoon Macron said one day I looked at him and Omar's house and all the furniture in it. And I estimated that all of his possessions were not even equivalent to 100 did Hamza did him, I did him would be the equivalent of $5 small amount. So 100 there is only $500 everything he owns is worth $500. And he himself said to his students that since the time of the

01:07:51--> 01:08:02

Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. I have not put one brick on top of another for a building, nor have I planted any seed in any garden means I'm not a farmer. I'm not a builder.

01:08:04--> 01:08:30

By the way, he would do a little bit of business just a little bit buy and sell just to make his bare means. That's all he did. And other than that he would give everything away. And another person said another tab here and said there's not a single person left in this world except that fitna has touched them in some ways other than Abdullah Omar other than Abdullah bin Omar, and there are so many beautiful statements narrated to him. We don't have time for all of them. But

01:08:32--> 01:08:35

one or two I'll mention it when Omar said

01:08:37--> 01:09:04

one tear that I cry for the fear of Allah is more beloved to me than 1000 gold coins I spend for the sake of Allah. Okay, it's a beautiful phrase because how true is it? We all give money when the masjid needs it when we have it we all give. When's the last time we cried a tear for elastic. So it almost said one tear is more precious to me than 1000 gold coins. So beautiful statement to think about. He also

01:09:05--> 01:09:49

said that statement as well, that no one shall read the height or the essence of a man until he has your pain that Allah sees him. And because of that he leaves any sins so that he will not be embarrassed by those sins on judgment day. Simple reality. When you have that level of your pain that Allah is watching you. Then in your private life may Allah azza wa jal forgive me and you and all of us for our sins, that he will reach that level of human who is going to do nothing that will be exposed on camera in front of everybody. That's the level of your thing that even Omar is saying you need to have, and one of the people at the time said famous statement during the time of Omar,

01:09:50--> 01:09:59

there was no one comparable to Omar. And during the time of Eben Omar, there was no one comparable to our simple reality and what an abnormal

01:10:00--> 01:10:47

We're both matchless in their peers in our model de la hotel and he passed away in the year 73 H 73. He passed away in Makkah right after performing hajj and even though he died an old man at the age of 83 actually what killed him What caused his death was a wound okay so even though the old man is there, but what caused his death was a wound because while he was doing hedge and in the congestion and the and the you know her judgment pilgrims and whatnot, one of the soldiers have had judge had been use of one of the soldiers his weapon his spear something is Javelin something it penetrated his either foot or Shin like something down there just penetrated that and it gushing wound blood is

01:10:47--> 01:11:26

coming out. And they were not able to for whatever reason, his age, whatever, I don't we don't know the details. All that is saying is that basically a soldier, uh, one of the people have had judge his you know, and it wasn't intentional. It was just in the rush and whatnot. So it caused that wound, and he was taken home and the blood was not stopping and it was understood he was about to die. So had judge visits him on his deathbed, because again, this at the time of hijack hijas visits him on his deathbed. And he said, who has there done this to you tell me the name, and I will deal with the soldier immediately. And a lot more says you have done this. A judge has what me? And even

01:11:26--> 01:11:32

Omar says you're the one for the first time that has allowed weapons to be carried in the house.

01:11:34--> 01:12:14

Very true. Your armies here, you're the one allowing this okay, you're allowing weapons to be carried in the harem, which is not supposed to be you're not supposed to carry heavy weapons in the harem. Unless our scholars say you're defending the harem itself, okay, then they say it is permissible to do otherwise, generally speaking, you cannot carry weapons in the home. And even are they allowed to add on. As he left this world, one of the final statements that he made on his deathbed, I only will miss or regret three things of this dunya three things I'm going to, you know, missed them or regret for regretful for them. Number one, the thirst that is felt during the day.

01:12:15--> 01:12:16

What is he talking about?

01:12:17--> 01:12:18

fasting.

01:12:19--> 01:12:23

Number two, the fight that is done during the night.

01:12:25--> 01:13:10

They are late. And number three now we get a bit of regret about his political stances. But still he was correct in what he did. Number three, and that I was not amongst those who fought against this group, meaning the high judges group, right when they came and they took over. Meaning there was one bit of regret now that you know, if I had to take a political stand this group, I regret not doing that. But in any case, and in hindsight is 2020. He made the right decision for the time will conclude by mentioning one of the most important facts that I need all of you to know about even Ahmad bin Omar is of the greatest and the most copious narrators of Hadith. In fact, second only to

01:13:10--> 01:13:11

one man

01:13:12--> 01:14:02

of Ohara. So even Omar is the longest Companion of the process and more accompanied him with the most narrations only accompany the process in two years. We'll get to later we'll mention why and how he has over 5000. Heidi has a different category. 5000 Hadeeth. Okay, that's a special category. Eben Omar is number two on the list. Number two, even Omar, he has around half of it over 2630 around 2630. So once again, I can't go over his heads because essentially, it covers every topic, over 180 headed the body and Muslim urban are more Think about that. Like even Omar has the lion's share after Abu hurayrah and so on. Why is this? Because he accompanied you know the process of

01:14:02--> 01:14:57

since he was born, and he witnessed all of the battles. And he is living with the Sahaba his entire life, and he's apolitical. So he avoids wasting time with politics. Right? So he's involved with knowledge and narration. And he lives along the life dying in 7373. That's 62 years after the Prophet says a lifetime. 62 is a lifetime. He lived he was he was of the last of the great Sahaba to die. Right so 73 he passes away at the age of 83. Because remember 10 years is over the Hydra. So he lived a long life, a political immersed in worship and a bada. And he has literally dozens of students and his own children. Salim Eben Abdullah hibben Omar is one of the main narrators of

01:14:57--> 01:14:59

Hadith he is also one of the famous that have your own focus

01:15:00--> 01:15:44

survive Medina the famous folk Ha ha, na his freed slave. These are his two main narrators, his slavers his son, not fear and Salim these two people are the greatest who took from him and each one became a major scholar in his own right. This is Abdullah ibn Ahmad radi Allahu taala and who won? Why did he may Allah subhana wa tada join us with them in the next life with this quick announcement that I will be taking a break for a week I'm going to raise funds for East Africa what is happening there so I'll be gone having an eight city tour to raise funds for East Africa. So next week, we will not have a haircut and then inshallah the week after that the Wednesday after that we will

01:15:44--> 01:16:05

resume inshallah tada and we only have a few weeks left for Ramadan, the final Wednesday before Ramadan inshallah we will have the fifth of Ramadan refresher. Okay, so I was told it's best to have it on the Wednesday so that's easier to attend. So the final Wednesday, before Ramadan, we'll have the refresher course of Ramadan inshallah, Tada. Does that mean okay, let's break for lunch.
