This talk sees Shaykh Yasir Qadhi delve into the life and times of another great Sahaba to have ever walked the face of the earth – AbdurRahman Ibn Awf RA.
Abdur-Rahman ibn Awf stepped into this world in the Banu Zuhura clan which had a similarity in the fact that it was also the tribe of the Prophet’s ﷺ mother, Aminah RA. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ gifted him the name – Abdur-Rahman Ibn ‘Awf, which means Servant of the Most Merciful One (Allah).
We are also made aware of the richness that Allah had bestowed upon him and yet how his life was an embodiment of extreme humility and gratitude.he always set himself the target of using his wealth to benefit the religion of Islam and to please Allah and took profound measures in ensuring so.his love for charity knew no bounds. Abdur-Rahman had extreme proximity with Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and so it comes as no surprise about his profound knowledge of Islam and his eagerness to spread the message of Islam everywhere.
Explicit details are shared and delved upon by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi on the early life of Abdur Rahman Ibn Awf RA, the reason behind his success and the lessons we can imbibe and emulate from his benevolent personality.
AbdurRahman Ibn Awf RA left for his heavenly abode at the age of 75 years during the Khilafah of Uthman Ibn Affan RA.
