This video unravels the life and times of Az Zubayr Ibn Al Awwam RA and how he was an indispensable part of Islam in an enthralling talk by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi.

Zubayr ibn Awwam father’s name was al-Awwam and his mother was Safiyyah bint Abd al-Muttalib who was the aunt of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Hence, he was also the cousin of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. He had another relation where he was the blessed nephew of Khadījah RA. In another way,he was also the husband of Asma who was the daughter of Abu Bakr as-Siddique RA. his two prominent sons who find a place in the history of Islam are – Abd Allah ibn al-Zubayr and Urwah ibn Zubayr.

Zubayr ibn `Awwam ibn Khuwaylid ibn Asad ibn `Abd al-`Uzza ibn Qusayy RA is credited with the nickname “The Disciple” of the Prophet ﷺ. He played magnanimous roles in the different battles prominent in Islam such as the battle of Badr, the battle of Uhud, battle of the Trench, battle of Yarmuk and so many more. He has to his valiant credentials the glory of never having missed a campaign or battle that was led by the Messenger of Allah ﷺ. He was an embodiment of honesty, trustworthiness and self-sacrifice.

Az-Zubair bin al-Awwam RA was the blessed companion of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and was among the early people who had accepted Islam as their religion. As is well known, he also had the bliss of being amongst the Ashara Mubashara. He has the privilege of honour to unsheathe the sword in the path of Allah for the first time. A famous narration certifies this fact and has been explicitly covered by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi.

One of the numerous Hadiths that have been discussed in the above talk and that which illustrate the stature of this great Sahabi is elucidated in the following narration:

In the battle of Badr, the Prophet ﷺ said on seeing a yellow turban tied around the head of  Az-Zubayr Ibn Al-Awwam “Verily, the angels [also] came down from heaven [to assist the believers] in the appearance of Az-Zubayr”.

We are acquainted with details on his death and how it was the most tragic events that transpired at the time. When Zubayr ibn al-Awwam left the Battle of the Camel in the initial rounds and was returning, he encountered Amr ibn Jurmuz and in a lowly level of deceit was stabbed and killed by him.

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

Mohammed hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad in early he was married and so inshallah we'll continue from where we left off last time and today inshallah we were starting Zubaydah vanilla one Zubaydah, one, the sixth companion or the sixth companion out of the 10 that we are doing and Zubaydah radi Allahu taala. And as usual begin with his nessa with his lineage. So Beethoven I want to know the Allahu taala was related to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from multiple ways, first and foremost from his father's side, from his father's side, he links with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam from the fifth generation and that is mostly from

00:00:57--> 00:01:32

the fifth generation and that is a sight. So after I leave everybody hemin earthman are both five generations from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and from his mother's side, he is actually one of the closest to the prophets, I send them because even though of course, his father is one, his mother is Sophia, the daughter of Abdul Kalam. So Sophia is of course the aunt of the prophets of Salaam. So zubaid is the first cousin Zubaydah is the first cousin of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Sophia By the way, she had married a person by the name of

00:01:34--> 00:02:17

the older brother. Oh, Sophia, so obviously found him to have his older brothers how did how did died in the days of Joe Hillier, they didn't have any children. So then she married, I won even hoilett. So I won, then Zubaydah one is their son. So this is so far two relationships the Profit System through the father, five generations per site, the profit systems on Sofia, so zurvey becomes the first cousin. Then there's a third relationship. The third relationship is Khadija Binti, Hawaii leads brother is a worm had been avoided and are one is divided into one. So hadiya also becomes the aunt of the prophecy send them

00:02:18--> 00:02:19

right.

00:02:20--> 00:03:02

Khadija becomes the aunt of Zubaydah. One, you're correct, yes. And the process and becomes the type of uncle then meaning through the marriage, right. Khadija is married to the process and I'm so he becomes the uncle indirectly not by blood, by marriage, right. So the process is related to Isabel through the father and through the mother and through a hadiya and by the way, her deja vu might as well just quickly mentioned the story of Sophia, not Khadija Sophia, because Sophia we're not going to have an entire class dedicated to Sophia, and there's only a few tidbits we have anyway about Sophia, so we might as well just mention Sophia, the mother of Zubaydah. One, that Sophia is the

00:03:02--> 00:03:48

most famous aunt of the Prophet system, the most famous of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she is also the full brother of Hamza. So Hamza and Sophia are full brothers, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he had six months, he had six out of the six, the one we know for sure who embraced Islam is Sophia. Okay, that one for sure. she embraced Islam. Did any other aunt of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam embraced Islam. There's enough one of them inshallah, it seems one more embraced Islam, and her name was Ottawa, her name was Ottawa been tagged. And then a third one, there's some controversy and it appears she lived to see Islam but she didn't quite embrace it.

00:03:48--> 00:03:55

And that is Attica, who is article who can remind me what is the story of article, we covered it a long time ago article.

00:03:56--> 00:04:37

article was the one who saw the dream in the Battle of butter, of a rock coming down the mountain and splitting up and pebbles going into every single house. This is article right. So article, there's no evidence that she accepted Islam. There's no evidence that she accepted Islam. So from what we know for sure, Sophia was the first and definitely the most prominent aunt of the process of to convert, our most likely also converted and she died an early death and most likely those are the only two answers of the Prophet system who converted and the fact that Sophia was one of the most beloved onsen so Sophia is the mother of zubaid. The fact that Sophia was one of the most beloved

00:04:37--> 00:04:57

answers demonstrated by the Hadith inside Bahati that when the Prophet system first began preaching Islam when he first began preaching, he gave his famous sermon and multiband at the end of it, he said, Oh, Fatima been tablin multilib Oh, Sophia, ultimate Binti Mohammed Oh, Sophia, bent abdomen, buddy.

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

I cannot

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

help you in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala you will have to save yourselves from the fire from the punishment. So he mentioned by name his daughter, Fatima, even though there are other daughters alive, but Fatima is, of course, the youngest, so she has that special place. And out of all of the other aunts and uncles he mentions Sofia. Why? Because he's showing the hora ish that oh Quraysh the fact that I love my daughter and my aunt will not save them from the punishment of Allah on the Day of Judgment unless they accept Islam and unless they convert, so the fact that he mentioned Sophia by name on the only art that is mentioned as Sophia. In fact, the only person of that generation is

00:05:42--> 00:06:21

mentioned as Sophia shows that the prophet SAW some had a very close relationship with Sophia. And in fact, Sophia was born roughly the same year, either a few months before after the prophet SAW Allah sent him essentially in the same animal feed. So Sophia is age and the process of age is similar. Now of course, you know that Abdulmutallab married multiple multiple wives. And so a number of uncles and aunts of the prophets are some are actually similar to him and age, maybe a year or two older like Hamza was similar to him and he's just two years old, a year and a half older. And then after Hamza was Sophia, Sophia was younger than Hamza. So Sophia and the Prophet sallallahu

00:06:21--> 00:06:41

Sallam are of a similar age. Now, the only things we know about Sophia and the entire Sierra are two very significant incidents two very interesting incidents. These are the only two incidents that we know about Sofia Vin tab, then we'll play the first of them deals with the Battle of the Battle of boyhood, in which after the Battle of boyhood,

00:06:42--> 00:07:16

when the body of Hamza was discovered and it was mutilated, we know all the story. Remember the vital Earth, the body of Hamza is mutilated, and before they had buried Hamza, all of a sudden in the distance, they see Sophia coming from Medina to see Hamza, his body. And the process of them saw her in the distance on the battlefield and she was the only lady, the only lady and she said, Mr. Mariani, the woman's coming meaning my eyes stop her from coming. Why is the process I'm saying to stop Sophia from coming?

00:07:17--> 00:07:18

Why?

00:07:22--> 00:08:15

He wants to protect Sophia from seeing the body of Hamza, right. And so when he's saying stop, the woman stopped the woman. Zubaydah stands up his mother. Zubaydah stands up and rushes forward. And he stands in front of his mother. Now this is his mother. Right? His mother pushes him aside. Get out of here. I'm gonna go see. And Zubair says the profitsystem has stopped you. Now she stops with Hannah, look. The sun can stop the mother but not the profitsystem. Right. So she says the Prophet system is forbidding you. And she is in the end of the day, a Muslim or she must submit but she's also an art. So she says is he forbidding me, because he thinks I cannot see the body of Hamza for

00:08:15--> 00:08:58

by Allah I know that they have mutilated his body. And I have come to see and I know he is with a lot of Anna with Allah and I have brought his coffin for him. So she has demonstrating now that she has the taqwa and sobor that is needed. And so one of the process that I saw that she has that much him Papa Saba over, so he gave the shout out to go. And so Sofia went to the body of Hamza, and she had the the coffin, and if you remember the story, next to Hamza was an unsightly who had no money whatsoever. And Sophia had brought in two nice clots, right? And so they ended up donating one of the clots to the Ansari, and one of the cloths was for Hamza, so this incident is one of the famous

00:08:58--> 00:09:41

incidents of Sophia because it demonstrates regarding Sophia it demonstrates for a man her taqwa her resolve. And the even more interesting story is the story that took place in the has with Ilhan duck the story of the trench in which, if you remember the story of the Hon duck, when at the very middle, or if you like when it was clear that the Muslims are pretty much surrounded by the Azov on the outside, and the burner Korea on the inside, that there is the possibility of revolt, there's a possibility that there's going to be an attack from the inside. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told all of the women and children of the city to go to a particular fortress on the mountaintop, to

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

go to a particular fortress on the mountaintop and to just stay there to be protected. But he didn't have men to guard the fortress because every man was in the front of the battlefield. Every man was at the front of the battlefield, and therefore all the women and children are

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

There were one or two very elderly men, you know, like the infirm, you know, 80 year old nine year old that have no power. They were there. And the only relatively young man was his son, even savate. And why was his son even sabot? In that fortress, because it's rather awkward to say this, but people allocated people differently. And not everybody has the same capacities as others, and has signed up and savitz was an artist, he was a poet. Right. And even to this day, poets, typically artists, typically, they are not the ones that exude

00:10:40--> 00:11:26

physical strength, and courage, typically. And his sound was well known that he was not able to essentially fight he was just not capable, emotionally, not physically as a man. But I mean, some people are simply not equipped emotionally. And this is awkward thing to say. But the fact of the matter is, this is the Hulk Eliza, which some people are different, not everybody can be in the battlefield. And his son was well known that essentially he was not able to carry a sword and meet an enemy, he would start trembling and not be able to to fight right, you understand the point here. And by the way, it's an interesting tangent here that I mentioned when I talk about this incident,

00:11:26--> 00:11:48

that the fact that his son had been stabbed, it was of this nature, and even more awkward his role in the slander of Arusha that Allah for gave that a love for gave. Still, his role in the oma was second to none when it came to what he was good at. In other words,

00:11:50--> 00:12:09

even though he wasn't at all a fighter, even though he's not known for narrating Hades is not known for is not known for HD higher than fatawa. What he was good at, nobody else could compete with him. And what was he good at?

00:12:10--> 00:12:45

poetry? Sure. Right. He is the father of the era of the Sahaba. Right? He is the greatest of the era of the time of the Sahaba such that when the profitsystem wanted poetry to be written, he would command omya his son, stand up his son and go respond to the Porsche, right. Go respond to the Porsche and gibreel is with you. jabril is going to help you. Now I mentioned this, even though it's awkward to say, but if Hasani with arbitrarily large data and

00:12:47--> 00:13:33

has certain areas that he's not strong at yet, that's irrelevant, because despite those weaknesses, what he is good at he excelled. So then all of us we have our weaknesses, all of us we have our weak points. But inshallah we also have strengths that we can give to the oma. So the point with Hassan story is a bit of a tangent, don't let the weaknesses hold you back. Because of your strengths. Right? Don't let the guilt complex, you know, I'm not good in Kerala. I'm not good in this or I have this sin for example, right? Hassan a bit fabric was not defined by one mistake he made in the subtle if his whole life was not defined by that one slip that he did a lot for gave him and Halas

00:13:33--> 00:14:18

life goes on, he repented from that. And he then had to do what he had to do. And he wasn't as you said, even in this regard, he wasn't at the forefront. So his lack of being able to participate is so well known that essentially He is the only able bodied man put inside the fortress with the women and children. Okay. And the extremely old people, you know, those that are simply physically they're not able to now, they're in the cocktail either in the fortress, and all of a sudden they hear two of the Bernal Corrado at the bottom of the at the bottom of the mountain beginning to climb up the middle of the night a dead silent you can hear people climbing up and they're whispering to

00:14:18--> 00:14:59

themselves. Is there any guard? Is there anything that's there? If there's no guard, we can send a larger group and we can execute all of them. Because remember, the bonus formula? What happened with them in the subtle or the incident of is up? they flipped sides, right? They flipped sides. They became traitors, and they were willing to kill the women and children. So the punishment that came to them they deserved it. There's no question about it. So now they're sending in spies to see if the killer if the fortress is guarded or not. And the people in the fortress are now terrified that what who is outside what not. So Sofia turns to her son and says her son, go defend us. You're the

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

man who goes

00:15:00--> 00:15:43

He's the only man there and has and is not able to, he's not able to. He's not simply that's not in his massage. And as I said, we don't say anything other than hair, everybody's different will lie, everybody's different. We all have our, our issues and what he's simply not able to go down and defend at this time. So Sofia grabs the only dagger that they have, they have no armed men with them because all the men are worried about the orange outside. She grabs the only dagger cringer here, and she puts it in her mouth. And she then climbs over the fortress wall in the middle of the night. And she sees the two men climbing up, so she hides behind the rock. And when one of them reaches her

00:15:43--> 00:15:58

place, immediately she stabs him multiple times, and cuts the head off and throws it down to the other man who's still climbing up. And the other man is terrified. And he thinks that there's a whole

00:15:59--> 00:16:11

group of people there and he comes back down yelling to the people, they have guards, they have guards, like they have people guarding them. And so the Bernal corridor disappear. Okay. And

00:16:12--> 00:16:47

Sophia then goes back up with the bloodied injure the bloodied Knight or the dagger, and says to his son, that okay, I killed him for you. Can you get his sword and his armor? Because, you know, in those days, by now, you know, we've done so many lectures. This is money. This is important. This is like a sword and an armor can last you 10 years. 20 years. This is like wealth right? And has signed up in fabric says la hija de frita. I don't need any sword and armor. Thanks. Now, of course, why didn't Sophia Get it?

00:16:49--> 00:16:50

Why didn't Sophia Get it?

00:16:54--> 00:17:35

She did not want to undress a man. Okay, she did not want to undress a man just Hey, look, look, I'm a woman. I'm not gonna take his clothes off. So he goes to his son, I killed them for you. Can you go get his weapons that his armor that hedges 30 feet, Alec, I don't need any any of that, you know, you can let him rot over there. But here again, we see the bravery of Sophia social handler. If this is the mother, what do you think will be the son? That's what we're talking about today. If this is the mother, then where do you think the sun is going to come from this. And Sophia, by the way she passed away in the life of Bob. So she lived after the death of the processor. And she passed away

00:17:35--> 00:17:50

at the age of 73 in the process, and passed away 63 she passed away at 73 and our own 20 year of the hedgerow. And she is buried in Berkeley and to this day, her cupboard is well known for the men, even the women you can see it but you really can't see it exactly when the men when you come inside the player,

00:17:52--> 00:18:32

when you come inside and you see the little bait right in front of you to the right, turn around, basically, so that's 12 o'clock when you enter, turn around to it would essentially be seven o'clock or eight o'clock like you turn all the way that away seven o'clock, and you look towards the corner, and you will see a little bit of a raised structure, that is Sophia, Sophia, his grave is actually next to the door next to the wall. And if the women walk up to it, they're right next to it, but they're not going to do is look inside because the wall is too high. But essentially when you enter the pub, it's literally 20 meters at seven o'clock, just the other way backwards. You look there and

00:18:32--> 00:19:20

it's gonna be Sofia's over there. So she was buried inside but a lot of other her grave is well known. Now zubayr we get back to Zubair is always the person that we're interested in is your baby. He had three brothers so there are a total of four brothers, a total of four brothers, and we do not know of any sisters. So a total of four brothers. One of them died in Kufa fighting against the Muslims in the Battle of the worst at imaginable. One of them died on the wrong side. So he died on the side of the operation, Abu lahab another of them fought in butter, but he was not captured. And he returned to Makkah, and he then converted to Islam at the conquest of Makkah. So Alhamdulillah he

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

converted at the end, okay, and a third the third one converted at some time in late mccunn phase so he also then is of the Sahaba but he didn't convert as early as zubaid and the third one which is the most famous after a zubaid is a sad event allow one aside, imminent I won and a Saturday evening I won he died a Shaheed fighting in the Wars of did against masala against masala so he became a Muslim but not as early as zubayr and he eventually died a Shaheed now Zubaydah. We have a few

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

narrations about how he looked his sons and grandsons described him. We know that he was extremely tall, one of the tallest of the Sahaba. It is said that when he wrote on a horse, his feet almost dragged on the ground. If there was no saddle, that's a huge, so maybe, you know, I don't know, six foot seven, something like that mean a very tall man, a way above average for the quarter a standard like a relatively tall person. Also he was wirey like, you know, thin and you know, not not, not not haIf not like thin, but, you know, we're worried like muscular, thin, not thin, that is weak, thin, his muscular but he's thin. He's not broad shoulder. You know, those types of people that are you

00:20:41--> 00:21:21

can tell they're athletic, you can tell they're very energetic and they have no weight. They have no extra like it was short and stocky, that's a different type of strength. Right? Zubaydah one is tall and his his muscle is on the bones everywhere. So he's a muscular yet it's wirey. He's a very athletic, agile if you like person, his skin was darkish Brown, his skin was darkish Brown, and his beard was spare so it wasn't the huge thick one like a motor it it was a sparse beard. Towards the end of his life when it became white. He chose not to diet so he had a full white beard he did not want to diet towards the end of his life, and

00:21:22--> 00:21:47

Zubaydah as well. His body was covered with scars by the time of his death. According to some reports, he had over 70 wounds and scars from top to bottom. So he is one of the warriors who have a light hearted demeanor worried but except earlier than harlot. So he's one of the Sahaba who excelled in battles, as we will see. And a number of his scars were extremely prominent as were mentioned in a while.

00:21:49--> 00:22:20

Zubair, his father died before the baby was born. Or at a very young age one of the two either zubaid was a toddler or what not. So essentially Zubair grows up an orphan. Zubair grows up an orphan, and perhaps this caused his mother to be extra strict with him. So a bonus hack mentions the story and deciding to stop it mentions that once when Zubair was a child, Sophia became irritated at something like all mothers do. And she began beating

00:22:21--> 00:23:03

Zubair, and Zubair, his uncle from his father's side, who had kind of adopted financially like I'm going to take care of the kid. He heard the beating. So he came to tell Sophia, stop beating the kid because that's now he feels responsible, right? Stop beating Zubair, you're beating him as if you hate him. Don't you love your child? You know, how can you beat him like this? And Sophia responded back in beautiful lines of poetry, which of course, I mean, can you imagine a mother is angry, and yet she's spouting poetry, those were different times, right? Even when she's rebuking the child, and somebody comes in between she versified poetry. And she basically says that and to translation

00:23:03--> 00:23:36

is, whoever says, I hate him is a liar, meaning you're a liar. I'm hitting him so that he may respond in battle so that he may reply back in battle, and he may vanquish the army and come back with booty and so that his money may not be taken from him. In other words, he is saying, This is the love of a mother. I'm hitting him to be strong. Don't say that. I don't love him. This is my way tough love motherly love, if you'd like. So Beethoven was around 1112 years old when the Prophet system began his dharma. And

00:23:37--> 00:24:15

he was of the first batch of Congress member all of the action overshadow the first batch right? That's why there is no Bashara all of the national budget of the of the first batch and zubaid was of the five people who are bucha converted basically within two three days, as soon as a worker converts to Islam within a few days five major Sahaba convert and of them is Zubaydah. Now one Okay, Zubaydah, one is of those initial converts at the hands of a worker so that we mentioned them last week without any and all of them Earth man, sorry, not only it is directly but but how on earth man and others, they convert directly at the hand of a worker so deep, and he is probably at the time,

00:24:15--> 00:24:59

not more than 12 years old. So not more than 12 years old, and he converts to Islam, and he becomes a regular adult. And he is one of the youngest of the private attendees at daru are calm, and eventually when Islam goes public, and he is allowed to inform his family when his family finds out the same uncle that criticize Sophia for beating him, takes him to torture him. Okay, so the same uncle who didn't want Zubair to be beaten for whatever trivial thing, now that he's accepted Islam that's crossing the line that he cannot do. And so he takes Zubaydah one and he puts

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

them into a room with no window, no nothing. And he lights a fire outside to not to burn him, but so that the smoke is now in the room so he cannot breathe. And he keeps him there. And he tells them until you leave Islam. Okay, so this is a torture technical horrible syllable, a very bad torture technique where I'm sure the heat also affected him. But the main point is the smoke that there's no air in and zubaid remained there. And he kept on saying, while la de la acquittal other than I'm never going to go back to cover and I'm never going to go back to cover. And he kept on saying this. And we don't know how long the uncle kept in there. But when Zubair did not give up, then the uncle,

00:25:41--> 00:25:49

let him go after this and understood that he's not going to reject Islam. So Zubair was persecuted

00:25:51--> 00:26:31

in a manner that we would say is called a towel over torture. It wasn't the type of torture that Bilal got. But different types of torture are there and this was a torture that dealt with basically the breathing and the smoke and whatnot. And he was put there for a while. And Allah knows best after was what happened. What we do know is eventually he did leave Makkah to Abbey senior so he was one of those few of the kurush who migrated to Abyssinia and then migrated to Medina. So he is Sahiba aged attain. He is the one who did hit it off two times. Now one of the blessings of zubayr as well. One of the blessings of zubaid is that zubayr was the very first Muslim, to unsheath a

00:26:31--> 00:27:18

sword for the sake of a Luffy sebelah to defend Islam. So as obeyed has the honor of unsheathing a sword, the first time where a sword is taken out in order to defend Islam. And this occurred in early mcca. avonside mentions in his trouble caught one of the earliest books of Syrah that once knew spread incorrectly, that the Prophet system has been kidnapped or killed incorrect news in Mecca. This is early Makkah. And so Zubair heard this news. And he immediately rushed out with his sword unsheathed into the streets of Makkah. Now this is very dangerous because even in modern America, if you have your gun out in the streets, that's a sign and people can do something to you.

00:27:18--> 00:27:57

So zubaid is rushing back and forth, trying to find the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and eventually when he does find him in some Valley, the processor said what is the sword? What are you doing? And he says Yasuda law, I heard that somebody had taken you or even killed you. So the President said what would you do with this sword said I would have killed him back. And at this stage, he's probably 1415 years old. 15 years old, Max, maybe 14. We don't know the exact date these are occurring, right. But this is early mcca. And zubayr is already now brandishing his sword and saying I would have basically defended you and killed him back. And so the processor made draft for

00:27:57--> 00:28:30

him and for his sword. He made the art for him and for his swing, meaning for his fighting, and this guy is going to come in handy with Zubair throughout his his life. It is also mentioned that in this early stage, the Prophet says that I made more aha you know the Brotherhood. Remember we said them what are what took place in Makkah and Medina both. So in Mecca, zubaid was made the brother of palha and so tall Hangzhou Bay with we did last week by the hands Roberto de la No, they always were very close. One of the reasons is because of this, the tall Hangzhou Bay became the brothers in early Makkah. So

00:28:32--> 00:29:18

Zubaydah De La Hoya and what we know about him in this stage of Mecca, is that, as we said, He's one of the very few people who migrated from the elite of the orange to Abbey senior, and one of the extremely rare Sahaba, who we actually have a story from in Abyssinia in Abbey sr, even though the Sahaba live there, some of them they live there for almost a decade. Like Jaffer, the fact of the matter is we have hardly anything in the books of Sierra. Just little bit of tidbits. And zubaid. We have one incident from him in avicennia. one incident and this is mentioned here, that when oma selama and others had migrated to IBC Nia or misalignment Iris destroy, or miss Ella is the main

00:29:18--> 00:29:57

narrator, and most of the Abyssinian incidents is almost selama. Almost Celebuzz, of course eventually our mother at this time, she hasn't Of course, she's married to Abu Salah. Eventually she married the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and she's the main narrator of anything happening in every scenario. So almost Selma narrates that in the time of Najafi in Abyssinia, there was a coup. Pause your footnote, we talked about this when we talked about the joshy. The Joshua, his nephew had overthrown his uncle. And there was an internal coup. And there was now a civil war going on in Abyssinia between the joshy who had been overthrown and his nephew who had taken the throne. So now

00:29:57--> 00:30:00

there's a civil war going on. Okay.

00:30:00--> 00:30:46

And Ole Miss Ella said that we were the most worried and terrified since we had arrived in Abyssinia. Why? Because they knew that if the other guy came, in fact, maybe even their lives and property are gone, because who's going to protect them? They have money. Not a lot. But still they have money. They have property, they have animals, they would literally be at the mercy of somebody who had no covenant or treaty with them. And perhaps and we were reading in here we're reading in here. But the fact that almost selama saying the Muslims had never been so terrified, demonstrates that they knew that the nephew was an evil person. Okay, they knew the nephew would not give any

00:30:46--> 00:31:32

rights to the Muslims. Unlike the Natasha who had of course, given all the rights to the Muslims. So she said we spent the worst night and Abyssinia before the Civil War before the big war. The next morning, we said who will check on the battle Who's winning? Because if the other side's winning, we need to move out who's going to check Who's winning? So zubayr volunteered to go check on who is winning. And what is the tactic he devised. He decided to swim up the Red Sea. Because it's the Red Sea, you know that obviously Nia right, to swim up the Red Sea, and to go to the area where the battle was taking place and to observe from the water. Because he cannot walk in to the battlefield,

00:31:32--> 00:31:48

he cannot walk onto the army. So he's gonna go from the Red Sea and observe the battle. And somehow I found this very interesting that it mentions that so they devised for him a leather pouch full of air. What are they doing?

00:31:51--> 00:31:53

diving suits? No, he's not gonna go diving.

00:31:55--> 00:32:40

a lifeboat Oh, boy, something like that, you know, just to hold on. So he doesn't drown. So Subhanallah look at the ingenuity of the Sahaba. So they gave him like a leather container filled with air and they tied it up, right? So he can basically Hold on. So he used this to go up and to monitor the situation. And then he comes back and he says up Should I give you good news that Natasha has one. So look at the bravery of Zubair to go and monitor the battle from the ocean, and then to come back and then say Hamdulillah, the joshy has won, and of course the joshy had won. And when the new spread that the chorus had converted to Islam, remember the story of the Satanic Verses

00:32:40--> 00:33:11

we went over this right when the news spread that the chorus had converted to Islam. So then a lot of the Brazilian Muslims returned. Zubair was amongst them, so he was only in Abyssinia for maybe six, seven months. And then when he came back, he did not go back again. Remember, most of them went back again and they took more people. Zuberi went back he's like, I don't want to stay there. I want to stay in Makkah. So zubayr came back to Makkah, and he remained in Makkah until the hijiri until the Hydra, and we I didn't find any narration between this to the hidrive anything happening to him.

00:33:13--> 00:34:00

During this interim, he marries a smart Binti Abu Bakar. A smart Binti Avi bucha, he marries a snap into a bucket. And a smart is of course his first wife and the woman who will give him most of his children, including the two most famous sons that he will have. And these sons you should know he had plenty of sons he had almost 20 children, but the most famous sons that everyone should know is Abdullah ibn is obeyed and obeyed. Okay? These two are names that should be embedded in every person's mind every student of Islamic knowledge. Every student of history should know these names. Abdullah has obeyed and knows obeyed. And between the two of them is more than 2025 years. Abdullah

00:34:00--> 00:34:24

is a Sahabi roadwatch is not a Sahabi Abdullah is a Sahabi is a temporary, okay. iotawatt never saw the Prophet sallallahu it was said to him, he's he's born after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So in any case, as small as the mother I've done, and that's why the main narrator from our issue, this is a heady point. The main narrator from our mother Arusha is Ottawa

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

and Ottawa from Arusha is one of the main snags that we get to our issue because odawa is who?

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

her nephew, right? What is her nephew? So our odawa is one of the very few human beings that can see our issue without a hijab. And he would walk in and take hydromatic Shannon because this is his aunt. This is his aunt, so I wrote what is the main narrator from Arusha, and his son his Sham is the main narrator from Ottawa and Mr. Malik is a student of his sham. So one of the goals

00:35:00--> 00:35:50

in chains of Hadith one of the most authentic golden chains, Malik a sham and roadwatch and Arusha okay he shall live in Ottawa and then Aurora cha Isha. This is one of the Golden chains one of the top levels of is not. And you find this chain in Bukhari and Muslim and Timothy Of course in wartime and magic. This is one of the main sources of our religion and Malik from his Sham, he shampoo his father, his father from his aunt, Asia, so, a smart baby Bucher gets married to zubaid and of course a smart then becomes pregnant with havdalah while she is pregnant, the hedgerow takes place. So as a pregnant lady, a smart becomes involved in the hegira What is a smart doing the hero who can remind

00:35:50--> 00:35:50

me

00:35:52--> 00:36:39

that the nataka in which What did she do? Food, logistics, food and water. So in her pregnancy, and so panelo What a blessing baby this will be that this is the baby in her womb, that is now helping in the digital. Right? This is Abdullah bin Zubaydah, right, that this is the baby that is carrying his mother is carrying milk and dates to Abu Bakar and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam on a daily basis. Remember, you know the plot, remember that every day, at some time she would come and then her brother, Abdullah Ahmad will come behind her and carry take the flock of sheep, and just get rid of all of the footsteps and whatnot. There was a very sophisticated plan. So a smashy would not be

00:36:39--> 00:36:59

monitored because you know, she's a pregnant lady and who was gonna monitor her. So she's the one who's bringing food to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and in her stomach at that time is Abdullah was a very so what's going to happen with this young man? A lot is going to happen. We're going to have another class about our children a few weeks. That is one of the most intriguing

00:37:00--> 00:37:43

plots and twists of the Sierra and his life and his political dominion. And he fought against humanity as a whole different and a sad tragedy of a death as well of Abdullah Abdullah Zuber, not the father's debate. So bear we're talking about Zubair today. So this is a smart, his wife that she's pregnant with Abdullah, eventually of course the process of raising Medina safe and sound. So then Zubaydah and his wife are smart, make the digital. Okay, so so Baden ismart performed the hedgerow and she is now in her final trimester. So she's now performing the digital walking to Medina, pregnant with child and she falls into labor before reaching Medina. And so Abdullah is

00:37:43--> 00:38:29

delivered in Oba before they get to the city of Medina. Abdullah Ibn azubi is born in Koba. And his birth was considered to be one of the happiest omens for the early Muslims. Because the Muslims were the chorus had basically spread a rumor that now that you're leaving Mecca, and this is your homeland, this is where you're supposed to be. You will not be blessed now this is not you know, evil people. They're just putting their their their curses their hexes on them, right? You're not going to have children, you're not going to differentiate from you is going to wither away. And so no doubt any there's this sense that oh my god, and so the birth of Abdullah showed them that it was

00:38:29--> 00:39:18

a good omen. Remember, we talked about many times I've said that Islam encourages good omens, I've said this many times. Islam encourages alpha, it's called alpha is optimism and good omen. So the fact that Abdullah is born, basically essentially right when the Muslims are migrating, and he was the first Muslim baby born in Medina, the first baby born in Medina, after the hedgerow. So Abdullah marks essentially the beginning of a new era. And his birth was celebrated as a good omen, that this is a sign from a law that we are now going to be blessed with children and whatnot. And so this was Abdullah Zubaydah Abdullah bin azubi. Getting back to the story of a Zubair Zubaydah, one was a

00:39:18--> 00:39:55

primary fighter in each and every battle of the process without exception, he did not miss a single battle. He is one of the few who accompany the Prophet system as his right hand man in each and every battle and if you look at even as half you will find he did this and by that he did this and he did this and handle each one as you know in stories and snippets that you know, he was fighting with this person he killed this person and you know, if you want to be advanced, we can go and do all of that. But just to be very brief, what is interesting for us is in the Battle of butter, the process of chose him and IE before the Battle of butter to go check out the numbers of the Quraysh

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

and make sure how much their army was so as obeyed is chosen to be the one who

00:40:00--> 00:40:33

Does the scouting along with admin dial him and he comes back and he tells the prophet SAW Selim. He was also one of the very few Sahaba, who was on a horse in bed, if you remember, but that had hardly any horses from the side of the Muslims, right? Zoo Bay was one of the few people who had a horse and in fact, this was a horse he brought with him from Makkah. So he had a horse with him from Mecca, and he fought valiantly in the Battle of butter, and he was severely wounded. His Son, Ottawa narrates in a famous narration mentioned in many books of Hadith.

00:40:35--> 00:40:48

His son Ottawa says, I would play with the wounds on my father's body. as a little child, he's saying I would play with the wounds, and there were three of them, I could poke my finger inside.

00:40:50--> 00:41:32

So the body has a hole, and he can put a finger and the child is just playing with him. Three of these wounds were so severe, that essentially, you know, there's something missing. And Ottawa and say, is said, to have those wounds for from butter, and one of them was from Yarmouk, the Byzantine, the Romans, two of them were about that, and one of them was from Yarmouk. So this isn't the Battle of butter, that he was wounded so severely with a spear with a javelin, that there was actually a hole in his body that his son or daughter would just as a child play with and put his finger into any single have space to put my finger into that. It is also narrated in we are those Muslims that

00:41:32--> 00:41:40

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw zubaid walking on the battlefield with a Yellow Turban wrapped around himself.

00:41:41--> 00:41:51

zubaid had a Yellow Turban wrapped around and the Prophet system said the angels have come to better in the same style as Zubaydah.

00:41:52--> 00:42:24

So zubayr became the the Yellow Turbans essentially, all the angels came dressed like Zubaydah, a woman that's an honor for zubaid It's an honor for Zuber that the angels came down and the in the garb in the Z in the in the in the manner of a zoo. Wait a minute, are one in the Battle of Orford Zubair narrates himself, so very narrates himself that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, offered his sword, you know, the famous incident where he goes, who's gonna take this sword from me? Right. And the first person to stand up was a zubaid.

00:42:25--> 00:42:26

As Ray said, I will take it from you.

00:42:28--> 00:42:35

Then the process that I've said, Who will take it from me, meaning he wanted to overlooks a bit in this time, then who stood up who remembers the name?

00:42:39--> 00:43:00

Abu Jana, Abu Jana stood up. And Abu Jana said, I will take it. And the President said take it with this right and and he said, What is this right is right, is that you continue to reuse it and use it and use it until it breaks and you cannot use it anymore. So I will do Jana took it. zubayr says, I felt something in my heart. Why didn't he give it to me?

00:43:01--> 00:43:40

Because I wanted it because I thought I would take it. And because I was even though I met the Sophie, I'm his cousin. How could you not give me then he said I'm gonna follow up with each other. So the story of the agenda comes from Kobe, because Kobe said I'm gonna follow up with the agenda. Why did he get chosen and not me? And then he narrates and I went over this in the Battle of word. he narrates what I will do Jana did. Then Zubair says I understood why Abu Jana was given the sword. Okay, so I will so zubayr had a positive jealousy there's nothing wrong with this jealousy, you should want to be blessed by Allah and His messenger. He had a positive jealousy, jealousy that is

00:43:40--> 00:44:16

Mr. hub. This is the type of jealousy that you're supposed to have. And he wanted to have the sword. And when he saw that a wood agenda was given it he realized that the process ahead of course chosen the right the right person. We also have a hadith in Sahih al Hadi are owed one our rates from Asia the same is not the road from Asia, right? or other one areas from our Asia, that when Allah xojo revealed in the Quran, surah Allah and Milan verse 1722, that Allah Dena sagia Allah who were a Sunni men by the AMA or Saba homolka, the people who responded to Allah and His Messenger after they were wounded, there's an ayah in the Quran.

00:44:17--> 00:44:59

Isha says to her nephew odawa your father and my father, Abu Bakar were of those regarding whom this ayah was revealed. Okay, so I just know elderly lady, she's speaking to her nephew. And she's quoting a verse in the Quran, that alladhina Xiao Bula he was also a member of Saba homolka. These are the people who responded to the call of Allah and His Messenger, after they were the calamity the wounds after all of the the issues happened with them. What is the story here? What is the story here if you remember, remember when the Muslims returned from the Battle of boyhood, and they were all fatigued

00:45:00--> 00:45:05

Tired 70 plus people died. trauma is affecting the whole oma right now.

00:45:06--> 00:45:08

What happened after that?

00:45:09--> 00:45:10

Who remembers?

00:45:11--> 00:45:15

So there was a fear that the hareesh are going to redouble back.

00:45:17--> 00:45:40

There is a fear that they're going to attack right now when Muslims are the weakest. So even before the Muslims had time to even clean their wounds, they literally just got home and they're in complete shock and trauma. Immediately, the process of them said, I need another contingent, and now then will not feel cool and volunteered.

00:45:42--> 00:46:24

And the problem said, No, none of you we don't want to ever let anybody do you're never gonna fight with what that I have come to us later. But from now, we don't want you guys at all you guys who betrayed us, you guys walk back out of laziness out of cowardice. Now, you're gonna say you're interested? No, I only want the people who fought at 100. And he chose 70 of them who were still capable of attacking and fighting. And the two main ones were Ollie and Zubaydah at the forefront early and zubaid, right. And of course, obika is there. So as you're saying, My Father and your Father are of those whom Allah said, they responded to the call of Allah and His Messenger after the

00:46:24--> 00:47:05

calamity overtook them. So this is the Battle of word. The Battle of hiber was when the highest honor the zubaid ever received, he received it at hiber. Okay, the most famous mutawatir Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim is in every book of Hadith, the most blessed Sid, if you like statement that is unique to zubayr. Of course, the way it has other blessings, the Vedas of national Bashara, Tibetans, others, but the one blessing that is unique to him and no other Sahabi has it. This occurs in the Battle of high bar and the battle Sorry, sorry, not hyper, Honda, Honda. Honda. In the Battle of Honda, I said, the club became hyper his hand up the Battle of the trench, the Battle of the

00:47:05--> 00:47:27

trench what happened in the Battle of the trench? Remember, the Azov were around the city 10,000 strong. And for one week, two weeks, three weeks, the supplies are dwindling. The Muslims don't know what to do situation is getting extremely bad. And then the worst thing that they could ever imagine happens happens and that is the bundle coryza from inside,

00:47:28--> 00:48:17

say or don't say, but it's clear that there's going to be treason. If the situation were as bad as imaginable, all of a sudden it got 100 times worse. Because how can you defend yourself against two fronts? How can you defend yourself against an inside enemy? Especially in this dire situation? And this one a lot describes a sort of zap Allah describes them, right? What aluna Bella Luna right? Well, bernardsville Allah will hanergy your hearts were in your throats. Jani, the Sahaba are described in this fight completely. They are now humans and they are terrified. We would probably have a heart attack and die. They are conducting the fear they're controlling the fear. But a lot

00:48:17--> 00:49:01

describes them. Whatever Luna, Bella Hill, Luna, even your thoughts began to think about Allah. Luna, you're thinking hoonah, the Kaaba to Leah Menon. This is where the believers were tested was Zuzu, zils and shalida. And they were shook a severe shaking. This is the Sahaba Allah talking about the Sahaba. That's how bad the situation was. It's really difficult for us to imagine their food and their water was running low, their supplies are almost over, they have 10,000 strong outside, there doesn't seem to be any hope of fighting. And on top of this, now the Boto corridor from the inside are going to massacre the women and children what is going to happen. So the first night that the

00:49:01--> 00:49:46

rumors spread, that the bones are going to Renegade are going to commit treason. And the Sahaba are, you can imagine how they're feeling. And that's why in one of the narrations I mentioned, in one of the narrations I mentioned when we did the Bible has up that much later on the Sahaba. One of the Tabby ruins said, If I had been alive at the time of the process of me he would have seen what I had done what I would do, and the other one said be quiet. Sit down. You have no idea for I remember a time in the Battle of hon duck that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked us to stand up and go and look at the the Quran straight right? And not a single one of us stood up to do that. Like what do

00:49:46--> 00:50:00

you know what we had to face? Don't come 20 years later and say, Oh, if I had been there, I would have done this. You have no clue. You don't know what the Sahaba had to undergo. So at this point in time, the first night that the Bonaparte

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

Those treachery is revealed. So the prophets of the law, why do you send them gathers the Sahaba? And he said, who will go to the fortress of Bernal corridor and verify? Check spy? Are they rebelling or not? In the middle of the night, single handedly, somebody has to wander backwards, turn his back to the koresh and wander to a faraway, you know, part where the you who used to live essentially, and wander through many fields of date palms in the middle of the night, and then make sure that he misses the guards, and then wait and figure out from the distance. Does he feel that they're preparing for war or not? Immediately azubi stood up and said na rasulillah So, the process

00:50:50--> 00:51:44

of ignoring him he said, who will go because he doesn't want somebody to who will go nobody says anything zubaid against his Anil rasulillah for the third time who will go nobody says anything. And zubayr says analyse rule of law. And at that point, the process of said the most famous Hadith about zubayr that is mutawatir about subwave in nikolina, Bian howery every nebby has a Howdy, what is the howdy howdy, it translates as a close disciple as a like what Allah uses to describe the disciples of Jesus right? When he says that to Hawaii in a month on site, ILA law, audit Hawaii Yuna Nando Ansaldo law. So, the word Hawaii means essentially the close disciple who will do everything for the

00:51:44--> 00:52:02

for the master for the owner for the or for the, for the nebby in this case, right? For the profit in this case. So, the processor said in the liquidity Navy in Hawaii, every Navy he has a Hawaii and the Hawaii of this oma my Hawaii is a zubayr abundant.

00:52:03--> 00:52:46

Okay, so there's no other Sahabi that has been called how it no Sahabi zubaid is the Hawaii Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. And this is what I wanted. And it was said at this point in time when basically nobody is volunteering, other than zubaid, multiple times. And by the way, so so very did go. And Zubair came back and he said, they have gathered up their sheep, and they're saddling their horses, clear cut their sheep outside, inside the fortress, which means they don't want to, they want them to protect it. And they're saddling their horses and you don't saddle the horses in the middle of the night. You don't saddle the horses in the middle of the night. So as obeyed, stood

00:52:46--> 00:53:32

there. We don't know the details we're reading this in. But clearly, he bravely monitored the activities from a distance. And Allah knows best in the middle of the night how he did it. He got this information back and he said yes, they have renegades they have rebelled, they have committed treason. So this is a beta one. And that's when the Prophet system said to him when when, when he came back the process and said something else to him. He said the howdy when he volunteered, when he came back, and he gave him the news, the process and gave him another phrase, which it's not unique to zubaid. As far as we know, it is given to only one more Sahabi. So only two Sahaba have ever had

00:53:33--> 00:53:47

this phrase set to them. Okay, so, so bad in this case is with another Sahabi. So when zubaid came and said the Rasulullah they have done this and this and this, so the process and said to him, feedback, Abby, what on me?

00:53:49--> 00:54:28

Okay, now that phrase has only been said to one more person, and that is sided nebby with costs in the Battle of boyhood. One the process of was being protected and side was doing the arrows and whatnot. And the President said it to me side feedback on me. And Abu Bakar said, I never felt jealous of anybody except on that day for sad, because he never combined between Abby will only accept on that day. Now, sadly, nobody will cos frankly, he is the one who more people know that the President said feedback can be on me. But zubaid it was said a dislocation.

00:54:29--> 00:55:00

And what does that mean? It's actually an expression. The linguistic meaning is not intended. It's like an expression. You know, in English we say he was caught red handed, doesn't mean his hand was actually read. The point is there's an expression, the expression translates it literally translates as May my mother and father be given to save you for your ransom. May my mother and father be given for your ransom. Right? That and the point here, that essentially and by the

00:55:00--> 00:55:44

This phrase was the common way that the Sahaba would talk to the Prophet who's very common. The Sahaba would always say Fidel, Mira, Salafi Daiquiri, will Mira Sula, this is well known all the Sahaba would say this to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, because this is the highest way to demonstrate loyalty. Essentially, what you're saying, you know, it's easy to give yourself for somebody to say, I'll give my mother and father for you, who is worthy to have to have that said to other than Rasulullah sysm. Who else is there that you can say such a high thing to now again, it says figure of speech is not as if they're going to do this right. It's a fitna, of course for

00:55:44--> 00:56:21

socialism, we do it. But I'm saying for anybody else you don't actually do it is just this figure of speech. The prophets have never said it in his whole life except twice, once to start. And the point is, when you say it, you're elevating the person's rank, you understand you clearly understand Think about it, when you say this phrase, you're taking this person, you're raising him to the highest level, that's the highest phrase to honor somebody feedback, the only so only two Sahaba ever had this set to them. And that is sad, the baby will cause the Battle of oil. And this is the more famous one and that is why For example, we have Eileen and others they said that the process of

00:56:21--> 00:57:00

never Majumdar been a boy he taught in Dallas, it never combined his parents, meaning for deco. Me, except for side. It said this or the other one. But that's because he didn't know of this second time. So at least saying basically I never heard him do that. And that's correct. He never heard him do that. But others so habanero did that the process of them said feedback we will meet to Zubair on the day of 101 the treachery of the bundle Cordova was discovered. So this is the bundle Cordova incident in the Battle of the Honda. In the Battle of hybrid as well we have an incident that is narrated from Urban's in his house as well. And that is

00:57:02--> 00:57:41

that in one of the battles of hybrid hybrid lasted 40 days, remember, hybrid yahudi camps, where there were many fortresses and each fortress was a mini battle, one after the other one after the other. So there's a series of battles taking place. And in one particular battle, there was a essentially a giant amongst the who would not mean you know, muscular, like a warrior amongst the hood, who was killing and injuring and maiming people left and right. And he was challenging who's going to come who's going to come? And eventually nobody answered the call because he would get rid of everybody. And that is when so Barry stood up and said, I am going to come so nobody stood up to

00:57:41--> 00:58:28

take on this. This warrior this giant and Sophia cried out era sutala he's gonna kill my son is the mother Sophia cried out Hello, Sue de la stop him. He's gonna kill my son. And the process of said la No. Belle yaku. Super Zubaydah is going to kill him not the other way around. Right? No, it's not gonna happen. rather's obeyed is gonna kill him. And that's what happens obey was the one who finally got rid of this, this warrior on the the the Battle of hybrid. So as we said, Zubaydah clearly is one of the main physical warriors, his body, his strength, his agility. All of this was demonstrated multiple times and in the conquest of Makkah. Zubaydah was one of the three people whom

00:58:28--> 00:59:12

the process them gave the banners to the riots. So he's a flag bearer. And therefore it is true to say that Zubair becomes one of the most honorable flag bearers in the history of Islam, because what city is being conquered Mecca, so he becomes the flag bearer, like the symbol of Islam, when Mecca is being conquered one of the three people who is caring and each one was on a different side, right? So zubaid is all alone where he is, and then there was hotter than Walid and then there was one of the unsought so there are three people carrying the flag. And zubaid was one of the people whom the process and gave the flag to as they enter the the conquest of the city of Mecca. So quite

00:59:12--> 00:59:51

literally, he becomes one of the most prestigious flags standard bearers in the entire history of our religion of Islam because of the circumstances of the conquest of Mecca after the death of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam Zubaydah, obviously becomes one of the closest advisors to Oba and Omar he's one of the other assura he's one of the other Hollywood artists the inner circle is of the visitors meaning he is there is no official visitor, you understand there's no MPs and senators but a walker and Armando northman. And it they had an inner core circle, they would consult zubaid was of that circle of a walker and of Omar in the reign of Abu Bakar and Omar, he participated in a

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

number of wars. And in fact, he played a decisive role in the Battle of Yarmouk. The Battle of Yarmouk if you remember, was the

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

most significant Battle of early Islam. It opened the door for all the Byzantine conquests, right? It was the first major battle that the Muslims had against the Romans, the Byzantines and Zubaydah, but then I won was the senior most Sahabi, who was participating in Yarmouk. So in terms of rank, he is the senior most Sahabi in terms of the conversion to Islam. He is the earliest convert to Islam, who is now participating in Yarmouk. So because of this, the Sahaba took him as a good omen. And they rallied around him, believing that Allah is going to bless you and he basically the army through his fighting and whatnot. And that's exactly what happened that

01:00:44--> 01:01:05

Zubaydah one was severely wounded. Remember what was said? How would play with his body with three wounds. One of them was from your book. So he was severely wounded, but he recovered from those wounds and he came back to Medina and he recuperated within a few years of that house is conquering Egypt. And he entered with how many men all the muscle, you know, how many men did he enter Egypt with

01:01:06--> 01:01:26

4000 4000 men he entered with 4000 men. And with those 4000 were overwhelmed. In Iskandariyah he emails back not emails, emails back, we need reinforcements, send people. So Bob sends a contingent lead by Zubaydah.

01:01:28--> 01:02:17

One of the now by this time, he's pretty old. He's in his 50s. But still, it's his prestige. The fact that people cheer up and they take him as a good omen. So sending zubaid would have been a one is essentially a morale booster. So he sends verbatim that one with a few 1000, they say maybe even 10,000, a large group went but Zubaydah is basically one of the commanders of the of the army. And in fact, he actually fought a very, very vicious, ferocious battle. And it is mentioned in the books of history, that he played a pivotal role in conquering one of the most difficult Roman fortresses. Remember, Egypt at the time was under Roman territory under Roman rule, and the Romans had fortified

01:02:17--> 01:02:26

Egypt with so essentially the way they would do this, they would build fortress towns, before you could get to civilian civilization and civilian towns, they would have many,

01:02:27--> 01:03:08

if you like, army bases, call them army bases, essentially their army bases, right? There are entire fortresses of nothing but soldiers. And the point of these fortress is if the invading army comes, then this is you have to fight them before you go inside. So one of the most difficult fortresses was a fortress that had been built almost 1000 years ago, initially by the Persians, and then by the Romans that had been fortified multiple times, and it was called the fortress of Babylon. And from what I understand, there are still remnants of this fortress still standing. It is now it is now in a suburb of Cairo. But there was no Cairo when this is taking place, right. When this is taking

01:03:08--> 01:03:47

place, there is no Cairo the city of La Hara was built by the Feltham is the city of La Hara is not something that was there. At this point in time, it is simply a garrison fortress. That's all it is. And this is the this is the colonel of the city of Colorado, eventually going to become this fortress, is what eventually acquired is built around this fortress, the Muslims had surrounded it for seven months without any hope. That's how powerful it was. They're laying siege to the fortress, and nothing is happening for seven months still mate. And the person who broke the stalemate was debatable at one

01:03:49--> 01:04:35

hour. And his story is absolutely amazing. What and again, we only know tidbits of it. He led a small group of people to scale the walls of the fortress, and to jump inside the fortress, and essentially fight off and kill the guards to open up the doors. Now, you know you see this in the movies, you see this these types of stuff, you know, and you really cannot believe how do people do this, like they scale up the walls, they jumped down inside they're surrounded by by the enemy. This is zubayr leading the charge at his age, and he then opens up the fortress and then the Muslims come in and then of course the fortress is conquered, right. So So beta one is instrumental in opening

01:04:35--> 01:05:00

the doors for the conquest of Egypt as well from this, the Babylon fortress. And Zubair then returns back to Medina after helping us conquer much of Egypt. He then returns back to Medina and he had the death of arithmetic, the death of Roma or the law when he's nominated in the Shura. And in the Shura, as you know, of the Rama now says who amongst you will give up

01:05:00--> 01:05:25

their position to somebody else. So Zubaydah is immediately the one who says, I'm not interested handed over to it. So the way it gets out, he's not interested in politics and power. He doesn't want to be in charge. So he says, Give my position to it. I'm out of here. So Beethoven, I won was not involved in siesta in this regard. Right. Now, interestingly, he gives it to it and that'd be positive. And yet what's going to happen in four years,

01:05:27--> 01:06:10

he is going to be on the other side, right. And this shows you some how anything's changed in this nature. So he gave his vote to nobody. And he then basically, obviously, with Manuel de la Juan was, was chosen to be the halifa. And in the siege of Earth man, Zubair did not participate at all, unlike that, who might have had a little bit zubaid was completely neutral. But then when earthman was massacred, he felt an immense sense of guilt that he didn't do more to protect Earth man, not that he did anything against but he didn't, like he didn't do anything to to basically help. Now remember, we explained why they didn't do anything because Earth man had told them not to do

01:06:10--> 01:06:43

anything. That's why they didn't do anything and nobody thought it would get to that level. Nonetheless, Zubaydah felt extremely guilty that he had not done anything. And eventually Paul hands away and they were always close to one another. But Hans Zubaydah decided to leave from a meet up with Asia hook, connect with the network of people that were angry at the death of Earth man, and then marched to Basra. And then the Battle of Gemma the Battle of camel takes place, right? We talked about the Battle of the camel, and it was on the Battle of the camel, that the two main figures and stars were thought and debate on that side. And

01:06:45--> 01:07:27

messages upon messages came to both Paul hands obeyed to Don't do this. And eventually the both of them agreed. But as we explained when we talked about him, he stayed on his horse and he was riding back and forth telling the people Okay, let's put your arms back, put your swords back in. And that's when he was shocked. As for zubaid, his death is even more tragic. We all know he died on the Battle of Jamila have done this 10 times now. His death is even more tragic. He actually left the battlefield. So technically he should not have been killed. We can understand, understand nobody justifying the talha is on the battlefield. He's on his horse. People from the other side are seeing

01:07:27--> 01:08:05

him running up and down. So they target him. We can understand that. But zubayr was killed in an technically illegal fashion. It's a very low thing to do. And what happened was that both Eben Abbas and Ali Abu Talib, they told Zubair stop leave. And I said to him, Do not do this, you know, don't fight me. And even Abba said to him, and even our boss physically said it sent a messenger, even our boss said to him, what would your mother Sofia do if she saw you fighting against it? Because it is the

01:08:09--> 01:08:29

it is the cousin was very severe as the aunt as well. So here's the aunt right? So what would your mother say if she saw you fighting against against Ali? And so and he basically is a very set he agreed that you know what we shouldn't be doing this if it's going to lead to war, forget about it. So he literally left the battlefield. And this was one

01:08:30--> 01:09:10

very low any what words we can use for him whatever you want to use, but a person whom even at the end of an Ibis and others said you are a person of jahannam they told him, the one who killed him and Sophia, and there's a life Hadith or to even a Sophia for now. There's a live Hadith, but this is not from the Prophet system. This is actually from the Sahaba. The Sahaba said this, even Abbas said this, he said this, the one who kills even though Sophia is in the fire of hell. The one who kills the son of Sophia, the son of Sophia Zubair is where the son of Sophia, qualitatively Sophia for now. So a person by the name of amber Avenger moves, Amber Avenger moves was the one who saw as

01:09:10--> 01:09:51

you may leave the battlefield, and he felt a sense of rage, like you're not going to leave without suffering, for causing us to come together. So he followed zubayr. And he killed him, essentially, essentially, without a battle, like he didn't ask him to draw sores, he killed him a cowardly death when he should, meaning he's a coward image and Moses a cow. You don't kill people like this. You we understand nobody's just if I want to wars taking place, we understand that is going to happen. zubaid was not on the battlefield. He was followed by a major moves and he was killed outside the battlefield. Essentially, some say he was praying Some say he was basically his back was turned to

01:09:51--> 01:09:56

him and gentlemen, evangelicals came in, put the javelin into him and killed him. Now.

01:09:57--> 01:09:59

Obviously, this is this is not at all

01:10:00--> 01:10:25

Something that is allowed in our religion. And when I've never heard of this, and even jarmoo is came to him to boast that I killed that I killed Zubaydah. Ali refused to see him. And he said, Go tell him that he is going to be injected them onto him. And so if not, this person is going to be in janam, for doing what he did. Now, it is also mentioned that on that day, on that day job, he turned to his son, Abdullah,

01:10:27--> 01:10:34

and said to him, that today, a lot of people will die, some of them will be bought him, some of them will be Muslim.

01:10:35--> 01:11:23

And I am certain that my death will also happen today. So he senses it, I'm certain my death will happen today. And then he leaves Abdullah, his son, a long while CEO, which is recorded in many books, and I'm not going to go over all of it, but essentially, making sure that his debts are paid off, and making sure that so and so is taken care of and give my money to so and so. So essentially, he's taking care of his worldly matters. And he emphasizes over and over again, return all of my debts, make sure all of my debts and my amount not are paid off. And in case you don't have the funds to pay off my Amana, then ask my master, and he uses the word master that slaves use as my

01:11:23--> 01:11:49

master to help you pay off the debts. So Abdullah said, Who is your master? Because that's a word that slaves use. Who is your Mola? Mola is your so he said, Allah is my Mona Allah is my Mola. And whenever you don't have the funds to pay my debts, say omotola of zubayr pay the debts of zubayr off.

01:11:50--> 01:11:57

For every time I have ever been in difficulty, and I don't have any money to pay off my debts. This is the do I make? Yeah, Mola Zubair,

01:11:59--> 01:12:08

the Dana and Zubair get rid of the loans that I have from now Why did you better have so many loans? Or so many? Am I not? The books mentioned some interesting facts here.

01:12:09--> 01:12:12

So pause, you need to explain the economic situation.

01:12:13--> 01:12:23

These days, we have banks. And that's a problem in and of itself. When we didn't have banks, and you're earning money, and money and money and money,

01:12:24--> 01:12:27

even a middle class person, what do you do with that money?

01:12:28--> 01:12:42

You don't want to keep it at home, especially if you have enemies or thieves or whatnot, what do you do, what they would do is they would go to a very prestigious trustworthy person,

01:12:44--> 01:12:50

like our processor in the days of maca. And they would store their funds with this person,

01:12:51--> 01:13:35

that this person is too prestigious to respected, and he's trustworthy. So they would store their funds with somebody like this. And then whenever they needed, they would come and they would collect it. Right. So essentially, people do this as a, and it's an honor for them that I am so trustworthy, that people leave their stuff with me remember the process of an individual? Remember, he had to return the without error. That's what it's called. Right? So essentially, zubayr is of that stature, that he has, quite literally hundreds of 1000s, if not hundreds of hundreds of 1000s, like millions of these types of people of wealth of coins and whatnot. But zubaid would have a condition. And he

01:13:35--> 01:13:48

would say, I'm not going to keep it in my house. I'm not going to store your actual money, take it on my credit, that I will pay you back. And then what do you think he did with the money?

01:13:51--> 01:13:51

invest?

01:13:55--> 01:13:56

Give it to the needy,

01:13:57--> 01:14:02

give it to the forgotten, and he would trust in a law that he would get the money to pay the people back.

01:14:03--> 01:14:37

He would trust in a law that I'll get the funds I need and I'll be able to pay them back and Subhanallah for his entire life, he would do that, that allow God to bless him and he would be able to pay it back. And there are many books I mentioned, he would get so much wealth and not a single penny would go inside of his house, it would not enter his house, he would not want to sleep with bags of golden coin silver or whatnot. So he would keep it on his shoulders, his responsibility that inshallah is going to be paid back. So he's telling his sons that have done in particular that when these people come to collect their money, you will find a way and just make dua to Allah, that

01:14:37--> 01:15:00

omotola of zubaid, get rid of my name, get rid of my What am I my responsibilities? And somehow that is exactly what happened that slowly but surely, people came and they started demanding started to manage their money that we gave this, we gave this we give this and have the Lebanese obeyed and the story goes on and he basically was under a lot of pressure and a number of

01:15:00--> 01:15:47

Sahaba came forth and they helped and did this not until finally, what was apparently people obviously owed him money as well. So he would give money as a loan from himself. So essentially, the amount that came back was much more than the amount that was owed. And eventually, even though his sons did not know this, he actually left a mini fortune for them. Or I should say Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed Zubair that even though he didn't live the lifestyle, even though nobody knew this about him, essentially, what was owed to him was so much more that every one of his wives and children was left with a mini fortune, a comfortable amount, even though nobody knew that this was

01:15:47--> 01:16:15

how much money he actually had. Because realized, by the way, so because obeyed was the first batch of converts, remember, a bucket of money alley, what are they doing? They're giving a stipend a salary, and what was the pay grade, you know, your companies have level 20 and level 17 to level 14, what was the pay grade back then? oldest and who is the oldest convert to Islam it is now so bad.

01:16:17--> 01:16:51

So essentially Zubaydah is getting many fortunes, which nobody knows about because all of it is going back to the Dane or theater or something. And then when he passes away, Allah's blessings come and show in his progeny and his children, right. And this is a lot of George's way of blessing the people back so his essentially his children inherit a fortune even though they didn't even know the father had it. And this is the blessing of his available one. So it's a bit of course passes away, dies in the Battle of Gemma 36. Ah, and He is buried

01:16:52--> 01:17:32

in the same place that he is passed away and there's about whether his burial is known or not, but he must be buried in the vicinity essentially of Kufa and very quickly time is coming up now is available at one. He married at least eight women in the course of his life. His most important and his most famous wife was his first wife and that is a smart Binti Abu Bakar a smart baby Becker, she will ensure that have her own halaqa her own story in sha Allah. And she is of course the older sister of a Chateau de la jolla from a different mother from a different mother and a smattering Toby Bucher, she narrates many, many highlights one of them is interesting for us here. So I have a

01:17:32--> 01:18:17

hadith Sahih Muslim, a smart basically says I'm married zubaid, and he didn't own anything. He was dirt poor. And all that he had was a plot of land. That was the Ania forest soccerway that's like basically a you know, a few Oh, two hour walk or something, you're gonna have to go and get it. And he would go and do his work. And I would go and you know, harvest and and get some of the dates from that and then walk back home. Right from that small plot of land that was so far away that he had, of course, this isn't the beginning of Medina, right, the beginning of Medina. And one day I was coming back with the dates, the dates on my head, she's carrying the basket of dates on my head,

01:18:17--> 01:18:49

right? Or the pit stones on my head. And the Prophet system and the Sahaba were coming back from some chore or something and they were on their camels and horses, and the process and recognize me is the sister in law. And of course, Medina is like an hour away. Right? So the Prophet says Adam pulled his Camel Up To Me and told us what to sit down and made a motion that come sit on the back. Like you're not going to walk so far away. I'll take you all the way back there, right to Medina. So

01:18:50--> 01:18:52

a smart says,

01:18:53--> 01:18:58

I was about to sit. Then I remembered the era of zubayr

01:18:59--> 01:19:01

zubayr was a very

01:19:03--> 01:19:43

What do you say here like Yanni? What if he felt something that I'm sitting on a camera with the profitsystem right. So it's the hate I I became embarrassed. And the process of notice that I'm embarrassed. So he continued on he made the camel go up and he continued on right? So she didn't get on to the camel with the Prophet slowly send them and then I when I went back, I told Zubair, all that had happened that you know, I didn't go on because I was worried about you earlier and whatnot. So he said, Well law, he the fact that the process that I saw you carrying the pit stones on your head is a far greater embarrassment for me. Then if you sat with him, meaning you know every man

01:19:43--> 01:20:00

will let every man understands this is a very difficult thing you know, to see you're struggling in this fashion and we're so dirt poor, that this is this is also an embarrassment for me that you have to be doing this menial labor. And when Abu Bakar heard that a smart was

01:20:00--> 01:20:15

In such difficult circumstances, so he gifted a smart, a servant and a slave right? And a smart says it was as if that was the day I achieve my freedom from slavery.

01:20:16--> 01:20:18

housewives mothers, we feel your pain

01:20:21--> 01:20:30

as Mark called being a housewife, a slave, you can quote the sisters or brothers Don't blame me. I'm just quoting the Heidi to Don't look at me. Okay?

01:20:31--> 01:21:14

Just move on. Don't Don't talk about this. She literally called being a housewife in this motion manner a slave. And every mother and wife knows exactly what how difficult that is. And she said, when he gave me a slave, Yannick and Mr. takanini, I achieve freedom, on the day that I got that from aboubaker. So the financial panel, one has to come under the support of law, look at how they began their lives and look at how they ended their lives. This is also the son that a lot of them is also a lot of villages. And so no, in any case, assumability Abby Becker was the main wife and many children and beaten the most famous children, and that is Abdullah and World War and there are

01:21:14--> 01:21:52

others as well, we're not going to go over all 20 names, don't worry. He had 20 children, at least 20 children of these 11 sons and nine daughters, 11 sons and nine daughters. Eventually, things did not work out between them. And many, many years later, after the process that he ended up divorcing a smart. And this also shows us that subparallel you know, sometimes this is the way this is a smart, and they are who they are. But they didn't get along in a marriage. So going through a divorce doesn't mean that you're a bad person doesn't mean you're a man or a HELOC is bad. This is your way this is a smart, and they are both of the elite of the Sahaba. But their differences just

01:21:52--> 01:22:22

were not. And after some time of marriage, and they were married, although it's difficult to estimate, but it must be at least 1314 years, 15 years, at least minimum. They were married for a good period of time. It just didn't work out between them. Eventually they parted ways and they go their separate ways. And this also shows us as I said that divorces and the way they looked at divorce is different than the way we looked at it as well. It wasn't like the end all that wasn't like the end of life for them. It's just a part of life and then you move on.

01:22:23--> 01:22:51

He had as we said at least seven Otherwise, we'll only mention one more that was of some significance for us at this level advanced students can go to more than this and that is the other wife that is of some importance for our purposes is article RT or Binti article 28. And this is the sister of Satan's aide who is one of the 10 as well. Sorry, the MS is one of the 10 promise genda and this is artica. The sister of side and

01:22:53--> 01:23:25

she is the daughter of zedi been nominated into a fight with the famous Hanif before Islam. So this is a div and I'm referring to his daughter his article now article she was married to a Sally by the name of Robert de la who died a death of a Shaheed very early on in Medina. Then she married her maternal hottub article, and Romer died the death of a Shaheed as you know, then she married zubayr then zubaid die the death of a Shaheed so that's three shades. Okay, so then the news became that whoever wants to become a Shaheed

01:23:27--> 01:23:27

What should he do?

01:23:29--> 01:23:41

Mary Attica right. So our little the law one proposed article, an article said, No, I don't want you to die the death of Russia here but he still decided that the Russia hit.

01:23:43--> 01:24:20

So we don't base our our our our culture and whatnot and you cannot go around. The article said no to Ali because she said so she kind of also began to believe this that whoever I marry is going to die Shaheed so she said no tally, and she didn't marry anybody else. Because she felt that any whoever I marry she's gonna he's gonna die the death of a sheet right? So she said no tally and what happened to it? It'll be a loved one. He dies that appreciate right. So this shows us as well that it's not going to you know, it doesn't matter. Alaska is a less cluttered. And then the final point is Sheldon this with this we conclude that

01:24:21--> 01:24:39

Zubaydah one, as we said, he had 11 sons and nine doctors, and zubaid had a philosophy of naming his children. He named all 11 sons without exception, after various shades

01:24:41--> 01:24:45

of the Sahaba every one of them, right, and

01:24:46--> 01:24:59

the whole list and you can literally go over inside and just double click inside instead of hot he mentions all 11 and he says this is named after so and so so he must have for example, most Musab Hamza

01:25:00--> 01:25:03

One of his sons, right? obey the law he has this sad from

01:25:05--> 01:25:17

the inside inside in a while. So every one of them he's naming right after some of the shades, he's naming them. So every one is named after Shahid. Now, who can remember from last week? What did Paul how used to do?

01:25:18--> 01:25:21

But how would name his children after the

01:25:23--> 01:25:27

profits? So one day, Paul have began to have a conversation with zewail

01:25:28--> 01:26:01

what is it that you're naming your sons after Shahid? Look at me. I'm naming them after profits. So he's trying to like, I mean, you know, this is friendly brother leanness, it's like, you know, teasing between there we're very close friends, right? So he's saying, look, I mean, follow my son. Now here. We're giving some some upgrade. We're getting to the profits. Right. So look at suveys response. Look at the the trump card here right. What does he say? Zuberi says Well, my my son's can aspire to be sure he needs your son's can never be profits.

01:26:03--> 01:26:45

You're not gonna win here. Okay. So I'm gonna I can inspire them to get this level your level is beyond hope for them. Right. So somehow look at this camaraderie and brotherman is between them. And of course, Abdullah did die the death of a shade and more than one of his children died the death of a Shaheed very, very quickly, somehow that time is almost up. Most of the amount Muhammad as we always do, some very quick hadith of Zubaydah, one, Zubaydah, one has very, very few Hadith less than six or seven heavy. Why? Well, actually, we don't have time to go into all of them, but I will quote one of the one of the Hadeeth Okay, so this is muslimah Mohammed. And we have Mohammed jar

01:26:45--> 01:27:31

from short from Sherpa from Jamia shed that from Ahmed ibn Abdullah bin is obeyed from his father from his grandfather. He said, Medina America to help the 200 Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comma a smell equanimous rudan were Fulani Fulani. Oh Father, why don't you narrate from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam like I hear even Masood, and so and so and so and so why don't you have the same number of ID. So what is the statement of zero and one? So we don't know why I'm sad said I'm in Neelam orfalea comun A slumped I never was away from the process of since I accepted Islam. But I heard one kalama it stopped me from narrating a hadith. And what is it? Men Kedah, Yamato handmaiden

01:27:31--> 01:27:47

foliate about what my father whom he Nana, whoever narrates anything wrong about me, let him be prepared to be indigenous. So from in this hadith intentionally from this Hadith, he became so

01:27:48--> 01:28:08

cautious that he essentially said that I am never going to narrate anymore. anymore a hadith and so he literally has only five or six Hadith and these are all primarily repetitions. And we have over here, one of them that, again that I'll do is

01:28:09--> 01:28:54

one I've done is debate. He said that on the day of exam, I was Abdullah miniserver says that on the day of exam, I was put with Omar bin selama, to guard over over the women Abdullah Abu Zubaydah. So he said, I saw Zubair go towards the bunny corridor and come back and go and come back and go and come back. So I said to my father, this is another news I said to my father, yeah, Betty, oh my father, what is the matter with you that you are going and coming over there? So so very sad. Did you see me leave? And come? He said, Yes, I did. So he said, it was the Prophet salallahu it he was send them who said to me, who will bring me the news of burning Cordova and they're moving about. So

01:28:54--> 01:29:19

I was the one who volunteered. And when I came back, I heard the profitsystem say, feedback, Abby will own me to me. So this is Zubair telling his son because you know you're telling your son these things you make them this Zubair telling Abdullah been so bad that the Prophet system said this to me. And one more, one more Hadith that I wanted to mention over here

01:29:20--> 01:29:23

and I cannot

01:29:24--> 01:29:25

is here it is okay.

01:29:27--> 01:29:28

It is the Hadith.

01:29:30--> 01:30:00

It is a hadith of him mentioning the blessings of Allah. So Zubaydah is mentioned the blessings of Allah. So Zubaydah is saying that on the day of offroad, I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say about palha, that Oh, Jabba told her but her has achieved gender. And that was one partner has lowered his back to the Prophet slowly send them and the process and remember we talked about this last week, and the process of God on his back and then climbed over the rock. So zubaid is

01:30:00--> 01:30:37

Talking about the blessings of palha. And he's telling his children and again, this is a buildup in azubi. So he's basically telling his son, so almost all of the hadith of zubaid come through Abdullah and he's talking and having a conversation with his son. And he also has over here, I'm not going to go over it. The story of Sophia as well. That Zubair mentions Sofia wanting to see the body of Hamza and Zuberi stopping her and Sophia pushing him out. He mentioned this in one of those as well. Essentially, this is really all that we have just three or four narrations was obeyed, and that's about it one of the smallest chapters of Hadith and the mustard of Imam.

01:30:38--> 01:30:46

I've been humbled, and with that inshallah Tada, we come to the conclusion of today's and inshallah Next week, we'll continue with the rest of the Harsha MOBA Shara.
