Channel: Yasir Qadhi
In this video, Shaykh Yasir divulges numerous details about the life and times of Saeed Ibn Zayd RA.
Saeed ibn Zaid ibn Amr ibn Nufayl RA was the son of an excellent individual named Zaid ibn Amr ibn Nufayl. He was the nephew of Al Khattab, the father of Umar RA.The reason for the respect that is binding upon him is his absolute detest for idolatry and his inability to fathom the reason for the irrelevant customs and traditions that were being followed by the Quraysh.
Once, while leaning against the Kabah, it is reported that Zaid Ibn Amr shouted:”O people of Quraysh! It is God Who has created the sheep. He it is Who has sent down rain from the skies of which they drink and He has caused fodder to grow from the earth with which they are fed. Then even so you slaughter them in names other than His. Indeed, I see that you are an ignorant folk.”
Saeed ibn Zaid RA, hence, without an iota of doubt, had the roots of his father deeply embedded into him and it came as no surprise when he accepted Islam wholeheartedly.
Said ibn Zayd RA was relentless in his love and devotion for Islam and participated in all major battles, conquests and campaigns barring battle of Badr. Details on this can be gathered when we listen to Shaykh Yasir revealing them at great length in this talk above.
An excellent saying by the great sahaba is that he says, “Let me report you something that I heard from the Prophet: The Messenger of Allah said, ‘If a person seizes a land that does not belong to him, that land will be wrapped around his neck on the Day of Judgment even if he is under the seventh floor of the earth. A person who dies for his property is regarded as a martyr.’
For more such beautiful Hadith, do listen to the above talk intently and come out enlightened immensely.

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad in while he was alive He has made them apart. So today inshallah Allah we will do the final of the national Mashallah the final of the 10 who are promised Jenna and his name is sorry even say his name is Sally Devon's aide, and for some reason and I do not know why, out of all of the 10 This is the one that almost all of the Muslims have never even heard of. If you ask the average Muslim, the educated Muslim to name you the 10 who are promised paradise, they will try they will guess they will do it And by and large, they'll guests inshallah most of them, and even the ones that they've
never, that they're not able to guess if you tell them Oh, you forgot about Aveda amadora right, you forgot adaminaby will cause they'll say Oh, okay, I forgot. When you say sorry, the venzee they will say
who is say the visit? And for some reason? I don't know why I have no clue why. For some reason, just many people have never heard of sorry, even Zaid. So inshallah, today we're going to dispel the,
if you like mysteries or what not and explain to you what we know about, say the band aid. Having said that out of all of the 10 we have the least information about him. So maybe that is one of the reasons Allah knows best that we actually have the least information about Eben Zaid. And in fact we have to begin say they've been saved by talking about his father, because his father is one of the most intriguing and influential characters of pre Islam, and that is Zaid Ibn Ahmed ibn newfane, Zaid Ibn Ahmed ibn newfane. So the person that we're going to discuss Saeed is the son of Zaid. Now, we need to talk about zayde that we'll talk about serene, who is a Zaid is one of the most famous
hoonah, far before the coming of Islam, who were the Hanukkah, the hoonah flower, a small group of Quraysh, who rejected the idolatry of the society, and they chose to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the most famous of these are reported in in his house. His house reports that one day the chorus went out to celebrate on a festival. And when they went and left the city, four people found themselves alone in the city. So everybody left and four people were alone in the city. And they began to kind of talk with one another and they realize they're all on the same wavelength. They're all wanting to boycott the celebrations of the idols, who are these four. And this incident is
taking place way before the coming of the process of decades before the coming of the prophet SAW Selim. Maybe even the Prophet system is a toddler, a very young boy, we don't know exactly when, but many decades before the beginning of Islam, and these four are what are called Urban nofal obaidul. I've been Josh earthman awaited and Zaid Ibn Ahmed ibn newfane Okay, so what have I been known for? We all know who he is, right? What we know Phil, is the older cousin, slash uncle figure to Khadija right? And she's the one that the Prophet system came to with him and asked what okay, but nofal obey the law and jack is a first cousin of the prophets of Allah, why'd you send them and he is the,
the the son of the Prophet systems aunt. So the Prophet systems, fathers sisters son, so the paternal aunt, and obey the law and arithmetic. Hadith is another person of the tribe of cooperation. Both obey the law on earth Monday became Christian. They became Christian. Everybody the lumberjack has a more convoluted story but initially they became Christian. What aka even no foul. We don't really know his religion. He was a Judeo Christian. The Sahaba howdy howdy says he used to read the Torah.
And the The point being he kinda sorta understood that the prophets are there. But he wasn't a committed Jew or a Christian. This is this is our what I've been nofal the one who rejected Christianity and Judaism, the only one amongst them was they live in America. And he said, Christianity is not the religion of God, meaning the way that it's found. And neither is Judaism. I don't want any of these. And he would travel in the world and he went to Rome and he went to many lands, and he came back and he refused to accept any other religion. And he came back to Makkah one day, and a smart Binti Abu Bakar. was a young girl at the time, and as smart as we know, was a
decade or so older than I
So as far as a decade older than Ayesha, she says I remember as a young girl that they had been amor even no fail sides, Father, they live and I'm going to fail. One day was standing with his back to the Kaaba leaning on the Kaaba. And he was speaking to the kurush. And he said, Yeah, my shadow Quraysh or people have the courage, no one amongst you is upon the religion of Abraham anymore other than myself. So all of you have abandoned the religion of Ibrahim, other than myself. And we look at the books of history. And we find many beautiful anecdotes and snippets about Zaid, even Ahmed even knew that he would not eat of the meat that was given to the idols, and he refused to participate.
So two people, of course, would put meats and expensive food in front of the idols who's going to eat that meat is going to go rotten. So the people of punished wouldn't eat that meat themselves, but they refuse to eat of the meat that was given to the idols. And he would also tell anybody who wants to kill their their baby daughter, he would say, Do not kill her, Give her to me, I will raise her, do not kill her, Give her to me, I will raise her. So they clearly had those beautiful manners and o'clock and he believed in Allah subhanho wa Taala. In fact, when the Quran would go and take an idol and sacrifice in front of the idols, the goat would be sacrificed in front of the idol. Zaid
would say this goat was created by a law and fed by a law and given water from the skies that were sent down by a law and then you give it to other than a law, how can you sacrifice to go to the idol? And there's a very interesting narration as well, that one day, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam met Zaid, as a young man, this is before he became a prophet. So as a young man in his 20s, most likely he met they they've been Amitabh newfane, around the Kaaba. And he said to him, What is the matter with your people? And you like, why is there a problem between the orange and you, and of course, he is much older in terms of age, he's, he's already an old man. So he's already a senior
man, in terms of age, and the Prophet system is in his 20s. And they says, that I have left the religion of my people and i upon the upon the religion of Ibrahim alayhis salam. And in one version, it is mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam presented some of the meat to him. And he said, I do not eat of the meat that has been prepared for the idols. And when he said this, after this, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, himself stopped eating the meat of the horsch. So he only ate the meat that he he, the meat that he himself prepared, and he would regularly travel to Iraq, and to Syria, and to many other lands of Arabia. And it is said in some of the books that he finally
came across a monk or a hermit, who told him that
you are seeking a religion that is no longer practice anywhere else else in the world. But you are from the people amongst whom the prophet will come, that is preaching that religion. So you're traveling everywhere, and this monk told him, You need to go back to your land, because the prophet will come. And this is the one that has been predicted, and he shall revive the religion of Ibrahim, so go to him, and sorry, go to Arabia, and stay there. And we learned as well from another early convert by the name of Ahmed Robbie. Robbie was a Yemeni, and he was somebody whom
Zeitz father knew fail, had essentially adopted and raised so I'm sorry, they didn't know fail. They may have been no fail. And this person, Ahmed had been adopted by the family of zayde. And so they were kind of like brotherly. They weren't Blood Brothers, but they were brotherly. And I'm married to this, that they'd said to Ahmed Ahmed, I have left the religion of my people, and followed the religion of Ibrahim, and the religion of his Marine, and following the religion of Ibrahim and the religion of Israel. And I know that they will pray to this house, the Kaaba. And I know that they would not worship the idols. And he said, I am waiting for a nebby a profit from the children of
Who I know is about to come. So this is what the monk told him, the hermit told him who I know is about to come, but I feel I will not meet him. I feel that I'm not going to be able to see him. But I have believed in this prophet, so if you live a long life, and you get to see him, then give my greetings to that Prophet. So this is Ahmed if not obeah, and it actually did live much longer.
He actually died in the year 33 after the hedgerow in the time of roadable, hubbub, and mill, inform the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about Zaid salam to him. Right. This is a very interesting Hadith that they passed the Salaam to an unknown prophet. Even though he knew the Prophet Mohammed says him as a person, he didn't know him as a prophet. So he said, pass my salams to the Prophet, if you ever see this prophet, and Ahmed eventually then of course, accepted Islam. And Ahmed said that they told me to pass the salams on to the Prophet when he comes. So I am passing the salaams on to you, at which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, he returned this around, and he said
that I saw his aid in paradise. I saw his aid in Jannah. And they passed away on one of his return trips from Rome, he would frequently go, it looks like he would go to study, it looks like he was an intellectually curious person. And he's going to study with particular hermits or monks or priests. And one day on the way back, he passed away in the land of
the land of Basilica in Jordan. And so area of Jordan, and his grave is over there to this day. And actually, he died a tragic death and that there was a civil war going on. One of the tribes attacked another tribe, and he got caught in the crossfire. So he died, essentially being killed by the crossfire. And this was in the year, five before the hijra when the capital was being rebuilt. Not before the 100 sorry, five before the Dow sorry, five years before the Dow when the capital was being rebuilt, when the processor was 35 years old, and the famous incident of the hedgerow that's what took place. They died at that time point when the Kaaba is being rebuilt. And what after Eben
nofal was his close friend, and even his house records, a beautiful line of poetry, a beautiful poem that what I wrote when when he passed away, the Arabs, they have a culture they still have this culture, that when somebody dies, poetry is written in his honor. And it is a very common genre and one of the Yvan nofal wrote this line of poetry or this poem, I should say for is a div and armor and it begins as follows that you were the rightly guided one, and you were the Blessed One Oh, son of armor, for you avoided the blazing fire with your religion. You believed in a lord like no other and you left these evil idols as they were, in a hadith reported in a top Iranian others our Prophet
sallallahu Sallam said
that he was asked about zayde and he said, he will be in fact, in fact, it was named Mohammed will quote the Hadith that said, even Zaid, the sun goes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he has with him. Why does he have Omar because Ramadhan said and they are related as we shall mentioned right now. So Zaid and Roma are related as Michelle mentioned now, and so Omar and say go to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and say even Zaid says Yasuda law, my father, you know his hell, you know his status status, what shall be his fate in the Sahara is an authentic hadith What shall be his fate in the era and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said the hello to janitor or a to
fear has a double whammy. They've been no fail. I enter gender meaningless or Mirage and they saw Zaid anomaly been no fail and he had been given to the project in gender he has his own plot in gender to the project in gender and our profits are the logs and he said he shall be resurrected by the omo calamity or mutton why he is going to be resurrected his own oma, right? So interesting quiz question, Who shall be the person who will be an oma without a prophet? And that is, Zaid bin Ahmed bin to fail. He is going to be his own oma no profit because he rejected Christianity and Judaism because he felt them to be polluted. And they are they are not correct theologically. So they
they've been ama will be his own oma, no other oma with him. He has his own individual oma. And these are all that we know about data, but I'm going to fail. What is interesting about all of this
from z, they've been absolutely no fail, what we see is that the aurash
still had the remnants of truth amongst them. And zayde represents this knowledge, because he did not hear of La ilaha illAllah. Yet he believed in that in a high level. He did not hear the Prophet solo send them yet he rejected idolatry and he lived a righteous life. And what this shows is that when you live a righteous life and you believe in one Lord and you have never heard of the Prophet, then it is possible you shall enter agenda.
If you've never
Never heard of the Prophet. And you will live completely isolated and unfettered. As the saying goes with that it is possible that you shall enter gender. Now that is Zaid, the father. They died before the Prophet system became a prophet five years before. our talk today is about his son. Sorry, even Zaid, and obviously when he's coming from this background, what do you think the son is going to be? So when his father is intellectually curious when his father is wanting to be exposed to monitor monotheism and the truth, what do you think will be the son's response? And therefore, sorry, even Zaid, even Ahmed even no fail is from the bundle ID clan, the bundle ID clan, and the bundle ID clan
is the clan of Komodo bundle called Bob. Bob his full name is Bob Eben, no fail the same no fail. So they IDs grandfather and Omar's grandfather are the same. Okay, so Zaid and Omar are first cousins and say dibbens A therefore becomes the first cousin once removed, as they would say, okay, so Zaid and Omar are first cousins, say dibbens aid. Therefore, Roma is like an uncle to him. However, the relationship is much closer, much closer through the mother and it's a little bit confusing now. Okay, because there is a marriage that is taking place. That is how long in Islam, but it was done in pre Islam, and what is this marriage? So sided bin Zayed bin Ahmed even no faith that is his
name, okay, now,
no, fail, has a wife, no fail, dies, and Ammar even newfane that is say they've been Zaid, enamored amas grandfather, okay. Ahmed's grandfather inherits the wife. This is where it gets How long? Because in Islam, we do not inherit right. What did the Arabs do? Do you remember?
The jahad Arabs when the father died?
Which which wives? Not the mother?
No, not no society allows the mother
no society allows the mother marriage. They would marry the stepmothers
Yeah, not the mother of the stepmothers other than the mother. The step mothers would be inherited by the son and they would suffer the loss completely how long and Allah says no Quran will attend Chioma? Naka. Ha. But accommodator. Sorry, illuma counselor. What happened in the past happened in lemma patella. It has happened in the past is forgiven. But now what I think your harmonica about Minnesota Nyssa do not marry the woman, your wife, your father's have married. Okay, in our Shetty,
a stepmother becomes a Muharram for the son. Okay, the father's wives become Muharram for the Son, and the sons y's become Muharram become a harem for the father, right? This is in our shediac in pre Islam, that was not the case. You guys following right? So we're going to have the same woman have children from the Father and the Son. You see the problem? Okay. But
the son that she's have the children from is not her son.
Guys, you guys, I even got to the names yet. I'm being theoretical now. Okay.
man and wife, man dies. Man has a son from another woman. The son takes this same woman that his father had children with and they get married and then he has children with her. Okay, this is what happened with oromos ancestry and with say the benzenes ancestry How so? So amedy been to fail, inherited his stepmother after newfields death and that stepmother was the mother of a lot Bob on top.
Okay, in other words are Omar's grandmother, through his father is also the grandmother of say eight through his father. In other words hotjobs mother marries her husband's son.
Right. And from that marriage, Zaid is born simple line hot Bob and Zaid are brothers from the same mother simple line. Okay, how Bob and Zaid are brothers from the same mother.
And therefore, say even say becomes first cousin to a modal hop as well. Okay, so there is a double relationship from the Father and from
The mother, so say dibbens, aid and removal hottub are very closely linked together, and then there's going to be an even closer bond between them. So this is the way the court assured they will always be very, very close in this in this regard. So, say divins aid is of the earliest batch of Congress, in his heart places him right after the batch that converted with Obama, he was not of those whom Obama converted right after Obama's batch. And he was the batch that was converted by hubub ebenen. Era hubub ebenen era. Now pause here, we're not going to do hubbub, if not in a separate lecture. So I'm just going to say two lines about him and then we'll move on hubbub.
ebenen. rot is a very famous early convert, we only have four or five things that we know about him, but he is one of the first 10 who converted to Islam. And he was not from the cottage. And he was there's an extra laugh Was he a,
a slave? Who was an Arab, and there were very few Arab slaves, most of the slaves were non Arabs. Remember, the Arabs were very racist society. So there was no Karachi slave, obviously, there was no Polish slave. There were a few Arab servants, even Massoud amongst them, right? Yes, sir. The father of Amar is a servant. He's not a slave. He's a molar that is basically a working class. So he's technically free, but he's not prestigous so he they can get away with murdering and killing him. So this hubbub if not either he was one of those or he was a slave. There were very few Arabs who were slaves they were and maybe hubbub was one of them, maybe and it appears maybe he was one of them.
And hubbub was a Irin Smith. And he would manufacture
basically swords and whatnot. And when he converted, his owner was a oroshi lady by the name of omega n Mar, omega anmar. And omit anmar began to torture hubbub with the same metal that he would use in the furnace, that she burned hubbub of all over his body with the with the the torturing the torturing him in this manner. And our profits are made out for hubbub that allows the widget free him and somehow to look under the law on Myanmar, fell extremely sick with a type of leprosy and a type of skin ailment. And the doctors told her that she has to cauterize her own body.
She has to put the same thing on her body. And of course, this is those, those mechanisms back then, to do that, right. And so so Pamela, the same idea that she gave to her Bob, now she got it. And she died as a punishment of that. And so how Bob eventually became free, and he participated in many battles, and he lived a quiet life. That's we don't know much about him. This is kebab ethnologue. And he is one of those who asked the prophets The Lord said, I'm this highly desirable hottie that one day when the persecution became very severe hubbub came to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, when he was sitting in the shade of the cab. And he said, For how long will we be persecuted? And he had
been persecuted that day very much by his master. Why don't you ask Allah to save us? Why don't you ask Allah to finish all of this and save us? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam set up when he was lying in the garbage shed he sat up. And he said that, do you not know that the people before you were tortured much more than this. And one of them would have a comb, that would be scraped through his entire body till his flesh parted, and his armor the early Christians because that's how the Christians were persecuted by the Romans. And that would not stop them from worshipping Allah subhana wa Tada. And then and this hadith is in Bahati, what a blue one law has a number of Allah
will fulfill this matter. And Allah will bring about the safety and security until a lady will travel from hagoromo to Santa, and she will fear nothing other than the wolf for her sheep. In other words, from MK I'm predicting that even Yemen will be safe. Our land will be controlling all of that. So this is how Bob he's coming to the in any case club Bob gave them a two sided bin Zaid, and so he converted to Islam. Most likely he was barely a teenager, 1415 years old, barely a teenager, but he was already married at the time because people got married early and that timeframe. So he's already married at the time. And who was he married to? He was married to the sister of Bob
Fatima mental hop. Okay. So say the urbanization is related to a maternal hubbub and 30 ways. Father, Mother, and father, brother in law now, this is how the police were, they were very, very close knit in their associations. And so he has married the younger sister of umbilical cord Bob, and her name is Fatima and Fatima bintan hot top.
We don't know anything about her other than the story that is about to happen, which is a famous story. We don't even know the year that she died. But she is one of the earliest female converts. And in fact, she was probably the first convert after Khadija probably the first convert after How did you have the females now, so it comes running home and he tells Fatima about Islam, and she embraces Islam as well. And so the two of them began to get lessons in Islam from hubbub, if not, who has converted them. Okay. And this is one the famous story that all of us know take place. Now you know, who say the bin Zayed is now with clicks who say they've been saved. Okay. Everybody knows
the story. Not many people recognize who say Da Vinci is this is Ivan Zaid, that the famous story I'm not going to read the whole story we all know of it vaguely. I mean, just quickly go over it. That one day Rama becomes very frustrated it was happening.
And he decided to suffer a lot too. And he killed the profits of the law hardy who was selling them so he takes his sword and he begins walking now. You don't carry your brand new short mccade is not allowed to carry a sword and walk around in this manner even to this day. You cannot do that. So when he is doing this so then noraim bin Abdullah stops him and no I am bin Abdullah and ham stops him and he says Where are you going with the sword? And he says I am going to up to the Mohammedan right Enough is enough. He has caused the frick between our families. He has brought about calumny amongst the koresh he has any cursed our gods and idols. And I'm just gonna get rid of this once and
for all. So no, I am panicked. No, I was a Muslim. But nobody knew. No, I'm panicked. No, I knew that Omar is so angry now that he is going to maybe do something. And so he knew that night that he was not going to kill his own sister. Because he loved his sister. So he diverted him from the Prophet system to his sister, even though I mean no I am knows who's a Muslim because he's from one of those was indicted. Right? So no, I am and Fatima and these are all secret Muslims that the time you're not supposed to expose. But now he felt the need to do that to protect the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So no I am says have you gotten mad? Do you think that the bundle Abdulmutallab would let
you get away with killing whenever their own? rather go take care of your own house before you worry about bundle optimal buddy. And Omar said what do you mean my house he says Don't you know your own sister and brother in law have embraced the religion of that man that you want to go kill, go deal with your sister rather than dealing with your with one or the other. And so he then marches to his sister's house and this was at the time when people would be sleeping by Lula and so nobody's expecting him to come. And this was the time that haba would teach them Quran as we know the story. And when they heard the thumping of Mrs. Feet they panicked and hubbub jumped behind the curtain as
you know. And Fatima put the Quran basically underneath the bed underneath the covers. And Omar barges in and he says, What is this buzzing that I heard? What is this buzzing that I've heard? And they denied this? No, you must admit this, you haven't heard anything. I don't know what you're talking about. And he then grabbed said eat. Sorry, they've been saying this is now the famous story grabs him. And he says it has come to me that you have embraced Islam, and you brought it to my sister as well. Okay. And he's shaking him and he's sensing that they're hiding something. So now he raises his hand to give the blow to sorry, divins aid his brother in law. And this is what Fatima
comes running up to protect her husband. And so instead of hitting, sorry, he hits Fatima, he hits Fatima and the blow causes her to start bleeding as we know. And this is what enrages Fatima and her husband said and she says yes, we have embraced Islam. Do as you please you want to kill us go ahead and kill us. Okay, do as you please call us there's nothing you know, because they cannot fight against our money is simply too strong. So when he sees this, we know that capalbo is hard became soft, and he saw the resoluteness and the determination. So he said, Show me what you are reading. So they said until you give a custom that you're going to not disrespect the most half that you're
going to show respect to the most half and according to some reports, they asked him to wash himself
And so he then read Surah Taha, as we know. And Omar was one of the few people who could read amongst the chorus, one of the very few people who could read. So he read Surah Taha, and he said, this is an amazing speech. It's a very beautiful column. And when he said this, that was when hubbub came out from behind, because he's hiding for his life, say at least his blood. hubbub is not blood and kebab could be killed with impunity. Nobody would do anything to support how Bobby has no family in Makkah. And that is when hubbub comes out. And he says that if you are saying this, then let me inform you that our profits are made up Alabama is that Islam be a hydro marine and numerous be that
Omar. right because Amitabh Nishan was a Buddha had a number of Baba zoo, or LA bring his to Islam with one of the two animals. And this is happening with Bob. And so he says, I will take you to the Prophet systems house meeting that outcome. And so right then and there, they want to come and you know, the story hams are open, they're all nervous, what's going on? Should we let him in what not? Because he's still had the sword. Remember, he still has the sword. And he marches in and we know the story that he embraces Islam. So now you all know who say they even say this. This is I didn't say okay, that is the early conference. Now. I looked as much as I could about it. They've been
Zaid, we don't have much from him throughout the zero years. All we know. He participated in every battle, except for brother and he is considered a battery, even though he was not present at the battle. Because sorry, dibbens aid and perhaps even obey the law. Were the two people when we talk about how I mentioned this, they were sent by the prophets I send them to intercept the caravan. And they try to monitor it but the caravan out with them. So by the time they returned, the battle about that had taken place. So sorry, and Paul ha, were considered buddies, even though they did not participate in weather, because they acted and they were under the command of the prophet SAW Salem,
and they got a share of the Geneva and they got the agenda. But even though they weren't physically at the books of Sierra mention, and he participated in all of the hustle what I could not find any detail about anything that he did, but he participated in all of those awards as we expect for the famous 10.
One of the things we do know about, say Debian Zaid was that he did play a crucial role in the Battle of Yarmouk against the Romans, the major battle against the Romans. And he himself narrates, on that day, what happened that the Muslims numbered around 24,000. And the Romans were more than 100,000. And they were lined up in rows, and they had their banners, and they have their horses, and they were preceded by their priests and their crosses, and they were chanting and singing their hymns. And it was a very,
a sight that brought a little bit of concern to some of the Muslims to see the grandeur and the splendor to see their horses to see the armor to see rows upon rows of all of these Roman soldiers. And it affected some of the Muslims, especially the newer converts, and at this upper obey the Amitabh mogera, who was the commander, we talked about this award winner who is the commander, he stood up and he gave a very, very powerful reminder. And he encouraged them to charge and one of the Sahaba stood up, we don't know his name. And he said that I will be the first to charge and I'm going to meet the prophets Allah sent him soon meaning going to be gone. What message do you want me
to give him? And so I will obey. They said, Go tell the prophets of the law. Why do you send them in?
Indonesia Na Ma de nada buena haka, we have found the promise of a lot to be true. Go tell him this. And another of the early people that charged was evens aid, and say dibbens aids, bravery and charging motivated a large segment of the army to follow him. So sorry, the band aid was not one of the commanders in the battlefield. But his bravery helped bring about the morale boost of the morale and bring about a sense of basically encouragement and sadness. Zaid therefore played a pivotal role in the Battle of Yarmouk and he was of those who also participated in the conquest of damage of Damascus. So say the bin Zaid was of those who conquered Damascus. And when a boy obey the army, the
manager left Damascus to go fight in Jerusalem. He appointed say they've been say to be the governor of Damascus. So the first governor of demisch was sorry, dibbens eight in Islamic times. The first governor of damage was Simon's aid. And once again
This is one of those amazing moments that we wish somebody had recorded. Just like when we talked about Simon who costs and entering the palaces of kisara. Now we have, say David Zaid and aboard Aveda, both of them, they are from the earliest batch of converts. And now they are conquering one of the most magnificent cities of the world and that is Damascus, right? With the Roman pillars and the Roman architecture and the Roman bads and all of these cities in his grandeur and His Majesty, and these very Sahaba who are with the profits of them beginning now. You have say the bin Zayed ruling over Damascus and Damascus By the way, what can be said about Damascus, Damascus It is said
is the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world.
The oldest city that we know of the people have been living there from the beginning of time. It is said that over six 7000 years of people have been living in Damascus. No other city has been continuously inhabited up until our times, like Damascus, so say they've been Zaid becoming the first Muslim governor of Damascus is a very prestigious thing for us as Muslims. Now, after the death of on the death of top
one of the puzzling things that we can that we have to think about, for some reason, say the bin Zayed was not put on the Shura, for some reason, say the band aid was not put on the Shura, even though he's one of the 10.
Why is this? And maybe that's one of the reasons why most people have never heard of his name, maybe as well. Why is this? I mean, to be honest, nobody knows.
Two things can be said. One of them was mentioned by Mr. Hubby. Remember that he said that the reason why Omar did not appoint Satan's aid was so that nobody could accuse him of nepotism.
Because sidepods aid was so strongly related to Omar, a first cousin, and a cousin once removed, and a brother in law.
So given that he was such a close family member, there was a fear that appointing him
would open the doors for nepotism, preferring your own your own children. And it is also one of the reasons why he didn't appoint a mother and he said stay guard outside, but you are not going to take part in the decision. Stay guard outside and make sure that they get their affairs done. This is one reason given, Allah knows best there could possibly be another reason. And that is if you look at the character sidepods eight, he seems to be a very quiet a political figure, maybe somebody that is not qualified to be the political halifa. And people have different qualities. Some people are good in some areas and not good in other areas. And that's not a big deal. That's the way people are
perhaps a little more sense that say dibbens aid is not appropriate to put in the six that might be chosen as the halifa. Allah knows best. We really don't know why sorry, the bin Zayed was not placed over in this thing. But after this, say that bin Zayed essentially lived an extremely quiet apolitical life. And he gave the author religious to Earth man and to it and during the time of Earth man when Kufa was conquered. Kufa was conquered the time of Roma. But in the time of Earth man, he gifted, say, the bin Zayed, a large area of Kufa with plantations and gardens because realize that the earliest converts were were rewarded for their conversion by Omar and earthman.
Especially, right worker, he wanted to be fair, and he didn't reward anybody extra aboubaker would give the same salary to everybody. And Omar said no, how can I treat a buddy like somebody who converted after MCI went to have to you know, you all know the corporations have their size their what their What is it called levels right? Hmm. The greys are the tears right? They have the righteousness, the human nature. Everybody has that. So Abu Bakar said no, we're gonna be one tier. Everybody has the same salary in the army and everything. But Omar said no, we have to have different and the largest salary right grade what is the 25 whatever and he said the highest one is
the 25 was the highest when each one is different, right? Each company is different. So the highest one will go to
not even the day before them not even doing the even before them. The first batch of converts, the first batch of converts and that included people like say Da Vinci right, and the Omaha morning we get the same amount, the Omaha morning and the first batch of convert. So say the benzene is of that category. And so in the time of Earth man, he gifted that category parcels of land now that the oma has so much land, go and and have this parcel of land, so So He then moved to Kufa with his large family.
had a very large family, as we'll mention, and he lived in Kufa for a decade or so. And during this time, he refused to participate in anything political. He did not get involved in Safin. He did not get involved in German. He refused appointments, even though it is said that earthman and he tried, he simply did not want anything to do with politics. So perhaps Omar kind of sense this and Omar knew that is not in his message. But everybody is, you know, wanting this. Allah knows best. This is a theory that I have is it could be just that Omar said, this is not the person for politics, and when while we have became the halifa and so the the caliphate is moved from Kufa to Damascus. So say
the bin Zayed returned to Medina where he was originally obviously for a living and he lived in another area of land in the valley. Why the elaborate why there is a
valley outside of Medina. And it is a blessing Valley the Hadith praises Why did I pick and say the bin Zayed lived in the wild they had a taste and he had his land from back in the day and he moved over there. While we announced towards the end of sage life perhaps in the last year of his life while we announced that my son yazeed will be the halifa after me all of you must give him the beta.
And sorry, the bin Zayed said no, I'm not gonna give baotou he has it. And other major Sahaba by the way wasn't just him. It was a very controversial thing as you know many Sahaba did not approve of this and that's why although the Muslim ban and her saying and whatnot, you know what happened happened later on okay. in his lifetime, this is why we are still alive. While we still live and he goes everybody has to get back to my son and the governor of Medina was who was the governor Medina and the time of
you all know his name, you should know his name. He's going to become the halifa
the governor of Medina Marwan is going to become the halifa Marwan will then become the one of the most famous qualifier of the oma yet right Marwan hakam right now as the governor he's starting so the governor tries to get a dibbens aid to give the buyer because science isn't giving the buyer the majority of people in the Medina refuse to give the buyer because it has that status amongst them. Okay. So he writes a letter that says not giving the buyer side. So while we sense an armed guard, and they tell say that they do have to give the better go to mode one. So the point is, he should go to mode one. And in mode Juan's hand, give the back to your seat. Like because Marwan is the
representative. Okay, give the by too easy. So it says, I'm not going to go. And this is the soldier. So the soldier says, if you don't go, I'm gonna kill you. So say laughs And he goes, you're gonna kill me if I don't give back to you. Don't you know that I fought Marawi and his son yazeed when they were called father and I was Muslim.
Like that is a
slap in the face. Like, because who is sad? And who is more aware? Okay, you're gonna kill me? Because while we don't you know who I am? And don't you know, who are we I fought them? for Islam, we need the conquest of Makkah. Right. And they were called for and by that and or everything I participated. And that family was not even upon Islam. And now you're going to kill me because I don't get back. So even the soldier said, I don't know what I can do. He goes to mode one. And one says what can we do class? What are you going to do that? Right? So they could not get him to give them a A to Z. And of course he passes away before us it becomes the halifa. Right? So sorry, passes
away before he becomes the halifa.
One of the mothers of the believers perhaps Julia, we don't know one of the mothers of the believers.
When she was on her deathbed, she said no one should perform the janazah for me other than say the bins eight.
Because all of you guys that are the modern guys, because we're talking about now 50 100 or so the bulk of the senior Sahaba have died in Medina. So they will see that our mother gives that none of you guys should perform the junos. And none of you politicians but what none of you, I don't want any of you performing janaza it has to be sorry to bin Zayed because he's of the early batch. Okay. So in fact, when she passed away mode one had to call so even though there was tension between them, right, and so it came and performed the janazah for our mother. The books of history also mentioned that Satan's aid was of those who whose do ours responded to and this is a very famous narration.
It's like water, water in the books of history. And also in the books of the books of God. I mentioned the story that one of his neighbors by the name of a smart, not a smart interviewer obviously not just another smart, one of his neighbors in Medina. She began to claim that Sally dibbens aid had taken
A parcel of land and acquired it and it was hers. Okay. And she began to file lawsuits in the courts and speak to the other people and and
SMERSH the name besmirched the name of, say divans eight, that, oh, he stole my land. And this is my property. And that parcel is a very juicy parcel of land, very beautiful area on the value of our faith. And she wanted it, she began to say that's actually my land. And so he then built a wall. So say it had a wall because you have a wall and say he built a wall that includes my land in it. And she began to swear by a law that that land was hers. She began to give her stuff. And she even complained to my wife and heckum. And she filed a lawsuit apparently that was a lawsuit. she filed a complaint, an official complaint in the court of Marwan that say the bin Zayed has stolen my land.
That's my property, that area, and I want my land back. So a lawsuit has been filed. So mud one sends a delegation or you know, whatever the judges whatever to resolve this and say they've been Zaid quotes ahaadeeth I will quote it and listen to him I have we have time each other to go over his head it I will quote it. It's It's here. And that's why I personally love to read the Hadith narrated by the Sahaba. Because you get a sense of their personality. He quotes a famous Hadith that is in Bosnian Muslim, and it's also a Muslim by Mohammed, and essentially says that whoever steals even a hand span of land, whoever steals even this much of land, Allah subhana wa, tada will burn,
you know that portion of land onto him, even from above the seven heavens. So essentially, he's going to be punished seven times for every portion of land that he steals. So he quotes this heady, meaning how dare you accuse me of stealing your land, then he says, go ahead and take it. I'm not even going to dispute it. Go ahead and take it, then he raises his hands to a law. And this is the layout of the model. And he says, oh, a law, if she is lying, then cause her to go blind, and cause her to die in that very land that she stole.
This is what the DA, okay, because he's had it after all of these months, or however long of lying and swearing by a law and taking to court, his name has now his reputation has been sullied, and nobody likes the reputation to be solid. So he just gives up the claim, he doesn't even go to court, he goes, take it, but I'm going to make a law against you. So the people go back to her the judges and they say, Look, he's willing to give you the land. But he's made the law if you take the land.
So they tell her this, that look, you can take it because he has agreed. He's not going to take it to court. But he has made the law that you're going to go blind, and you're going to die in that land.
She was greedy.
She's like Hogan, Hollis is mine. So she destroyed the wall. And she built the wall. The other way now, she acquired the land, she built a house for herself on that land. That's what she wanted. She wanted a house. And within a few months, she fell sick, and she became blind. And then she lived a long life because that is a punishment to be blind. In this manner, obviously otherwise, it's it's not a punishment to be blind if, you know, if you're if you're thankful to Allah, but in this case, when boom has been done it as a punishment, because that was the curse made against her. So she lived a long life. And one day and she had a servant who would carry her around, not carry her
sorry, take her hand around. One day, she woke up in the middle of the night and she couldn't find the servant. So she walked outside looking for the servant. And she fell into a well on that property. And the world was so deep that they couldn't take the body out. So the world became recovered. They just poured sand onto it. And it became recovered. Okay, so the dark of
the dark side was fully effected on her. So, reminder to all of us will lie. If you do any sin just don't do any sin between you and Allah. I'm not giving a green light service. I'm saying anything between you and Allah in sha Allah. Allah will forgive but vote them to other people, vote them to other people. That is where you have to be very, very, very careful. LIBOR slander, stealing people's money, doing anything that is learning between you and other people on a bad that is where you have to be especially careful. polka law is much easier. And Allah is Allah food and Rahim and when you repent, Allah will repent, but people don't forgive. People don't forgive so be careful of
this soap. Say that man's aid essentially passed away that same year.
Probably around the year 5050 or 5100, in the same value that I paid for the seekers lived outside of Medina and he was around 7577 years old. He was around 77 years old and he died outside of Medina and so he was taken into Medina and he was buried in Buckley air. So he is buried in Buckley, a lot of blood, and his body was washed by his relative Abdullah.
Okay, so Abdullah, even Bob, and the person who led the janazah was the final 10 of the Ashura to die and they decided that we will cause the final of them to die. We're saddened that we will cost so sad that the janaza for him, sidedness aid. He actually as with most of the the 10, he married Marshall that article or many, many times in his life, he had at least 10 women in his life. I say 10 women because some of them weren't milkier mean, and some of them were wives, so he had at least 10 women and from them he had over 30 children, over 30 children and many of his children. For many centuries afterwards. They traced their descent to him. They lived in Kufa and in Medina say dibbens
he did not narrate that many a hadith in the Muslim Ummah, he has around 20 or so. And without repetition, there's only six or seven heads. So sorry demonisation was not known for narrating too many studies. And in the remaining time, we're just going to go over some of the Hadith narrated in the most number of serene urban Zaid Ibn Ahmed ibn no fail and inshallah we'll just mentioned five or six inshallah, sorry demonisation a narrative, so this is the Muslim Mr. Mohammed, and we're doing the Muslims of say, the bin Zayed bin Ahmed, even newfane.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and this is an interesting idea, so you will benefit a Chatelet from it. And it's something that
is most people have not heard of. And it is authentic idea. This idea this is a Muslim as well. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I'll come at 2 million men need one Maha Shiva only line. I'll come a two minute men. I'll come is a type of fruit. Or I should say a vegetable or actually I don't even know is it a fruit or a vegetable?
It's in English, you call it a truffle? Okay, it's a type of mushroom. Okay, so type of mushroom. A truffle, I'll come to it is a type of truffle that is found in the Arabian Peninsula. And it's rare. And it's also very expensive. Very expensive. If you go to some of the
bazaars of Serbia you might get a kilo for like 100 200 rails, like there's a lot of money for them. Like you know, it's not something's cheap, like 100 $200 for a small bag of these truffles, and it's collected by the Bedouins and they bring it to the city to sell the gum is the remnants of the men. What is the men?
Men and Salawat. Okay, men and Silva. So that come up is from the man that used to come down, they would eat that in the time of Musashi his lamp that is still remaining here. And it's water is a Shiva for him.
Okay, so if somebody has I mean, he should try to get an outcome. And that's why it's sold in Serbia to this day. Okay. Yeah, has it as
I remember once as well. So when you go to Oxford, you know, you have these Bedouin ladies selling all of these weird bizarre things. I remember seeing it ask them when next time you go there, say do you have come? Do you ever come here? I'll come. I'll come. I'll come they have that. It's a type. It looks like a mushroom. It looks like a mushroom is but it's called the truffle in English. Okay. By the way, truffles in Europe are a luxury item. You get those truffles sometimes for 510 $1,000 for a pound. It is one of the most expensive Is it a fruit or vegetable don't even know.
Whatever it is, it's one of the most expensive plants in the world. And was it Belgian truffles are one of the European countries. It's huh. No, no, not the chocolate. That's Belgian chocolate something else? No, no, no. The chocolate is something else. Okay. The what?
You look for it in the dark. Yes. But this is the European variety. I don't know about the Arabian variety. I don't know. I know in the European variety, which is the one that is sold here. So again, a bit of a tangent here. So if you have a restaurant that is giving you an item with truffle on it, that dish will be minimum 100 $200 they sprinkle a little bit on it and you only get it in the most elite you know the three stars that God rated or whatever, you know these ridiculous things that they have, you know, the most and I don't even think any restaurant in Memphis when I
Have it? I don't think so. Okay. Somebody quickly Google find out is in your truffle in Memphis, but it's one of those things that, you know, forget caviar caviar is like for the masses compared to truffle. Is that exotic, right? This is what the Hadith is saying. But the question arises and it doesn't say, Does European comm account or is it only Arabian comm that we're interested in? Right? If it's Arabian, I can assure you it is much cheaper than European. Okay, so let's hope with the Arabian variety. But of course, the problem comes in America, you can purchase European truffles. I don't know if you can purchase Arabian anywhere here, you'll have to go. But if you ever go to
Serbia, you will be able to purchase it. You know, as I said, some of the ladies outside of water they sell it, but it's interesting to know. And they come at 2 million men. One Maha Shiva only nine and it's water. So what you do is you take some of this karma and you gently boil it in water, okay? And you gently boil it in water and then you drink the water it is going to kill you from from it. Okay. So that is one hadith of Satanism. The next had ethos, it didn't say that sidedness either. Naboo failed that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Men Atilla Dona Mali he for her Shaheed woman Voluma men and oddly shibaura shibden. To Wilco whom in summary are all in this is the
famous Hadith that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, Whoever dies defending his property is a Shaheed
and whoever does learn by stealing even a shiver This is a shiver handspun
of land then Allah subhanho wa Taala will punish him
with the equivalent of seven Earths or seven planets, one hand span It is as if you have stole Sudbury or aldine. He will be punished by by Johanna basically of seven. probably in the next it it will do that I'll move later aventura was in the big question of Kufa pause. Moyer even shorter but was appointed as the governor of Kufa in the time of muawiya. While we made Mahavira, the governor of Kufa and he had the people of Kufa, on to the right of him and to the left of him and say, even Zaid came through the entire crowd, and mahira greeted him and put him on his right hand side on the pedestal with him. So Molina was sitting on a pedestal like the governor, and he put a bandaid on
the same pedestal as him while the people were surrounding. So he's honoring Solomon's aid. Then a man from Kufa came and faced mahira and began to utter vulgarities against somebody. So salaried said, Who is he cursing omo era? So mohila said he is cursing it.
These are the times over the years, things happened, the least we say about them, the better it is. But we do not agree with this. And it is a sad reality. And we are Sunni Muslims defend the honor of Ali against what happened in the early omega time. Okay, it is incorrect for the other group to call us. The supporters of omega IDs. We are not the supporters of omega as in this case, and we say this was wrong. And unfortunately, it was public policy. Unfortunately, times were tough and whatnot. And they did what they did and it is wrong. So he is saying bad things about it. So say they've been Zaid said he emiliana even shrub jamahiriya have been sure yeah, so he's cutting the name of this is
called pas live. And it's done to show irritation instead of shorba and mohila yamo have been sure I'd be emulated. Missouri's cutting it off the last two, how do you cut off the last word and that's to show either love or irritation? One of the two. You either show lover into depending on the context, right? So the professor's would regularly call out Asia. Yeah, ish. Yeah, ish, like a pet name. And you can also do it when you're irritated or angry. Yeah, well, 11 should be emulated miserable, like he's being angry at him, that you hear the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam cursed in front of you, and you do not stop. And you do not change the topic. How could
you do this? For I swear that I heard the prophets of Allah who I knew he was selling them. These ears of mine heard and this heart memorized what he said. Now this hadith is the most explicit Hadith about the Asha wabasha. Okay, this is the context aboubaker filled agenda. Warren Murphy agenda. Why do you feel genda with manful agenda, what Allah has agenda was debated for gender war Abdurrahman fifth gender we're sad here Society of nomadic gender, because I'll be what caused his name was Malik. Okay, so aside from that, we will cause the southern Valley Southern medical agenda
What does your NFL gender low shoot to know some either some made to who and there is a 19 mentioned, if I wanted to mention his name, I would mention his name but I'm not going to mention his name. So the people in the masjid began to shout out loud. Who is this ninth one? Tell us this ninth One is we asked you by a law tell us the ninth one. So he said Anna duster in one minute. I am the ninth one that was mentioned. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the 10th. One then said he said, voila, he won battle that any person witnessed with the Prophet salallahu idea he was sending them defending his face is better than the deeds of any one of you if you were to live as
long as nor lived.
Meaning put yourselves in your place. You have no right to curse Ali or any of the earlier Sahaba You have no right to speak at any of them. One battle that we spent defending the face of the Prophet system is not equivalent to 950 years of one of your other deeds. So this is a beautiful hadith of Ibn Zayd. Another hadith of sorry, they may say that one day they were walking at the mountain of Hara outside Makkah and Herat began to tremble. So this hadith has been narrated but for Hara and for Oakwood, but for her it was only abubaker and Omar and rathmann whereas at Hara they were batches of early Sahaba. And in this hadith we have that Herat began to shake and the Prophet
sallallahu Sallam said, Who skoon Hara calm down here are fillet Sadek, inland v Yun, also deikun o Shahid. And at that time there was the Nabi sallallahu Sallam and a worker and robot and respond and it and all hands obeyed inside and I've got to win an hour and sidedness eight. So this is another Hadith that has that magical not magic. There's no magic of that beautiful Ashura, Bashara in it
and a similar Hadith as well. And then we'll just do one more Hadith inshallah. Tada. And then we are done for sorry, bin Zaid and that Hadith.
Yes. On newfane ibn Hisham Ibn Zayd, Ibn Zayd from his father from his grandfather. So back to the music that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in Mecca with they had been had Ethan's 11 holidays quote unquote adopted son. And this is an early pre Islam and Zaid Ibn ama Eben newfane passed by them. So sorry, there's mentioning a story about his father. Before Islam clear. They they have an hour passed by them.
And the both of them invited Zaid to eat on the food that they had. Zaid said you have to the Prophet says or son of my brother. In Nila Kuru mimma, Ruby had a no sub. I never eat the meat that had been intended for the idols. So it says after this, the Prophet salallahu it who said them was never seen eating anything that had been presented to the idols. This is before Islam. This is when he's a teenager or a young man and he refuses then to eat anything from there. Then side said that side said Yasuda law in Abbey Cana come after ateva vodka was a darker color and a bigger wet tobacco for stole for level. Oh rasulillah. So so my father, you remember him and you know how he
was. And you know that if he were alive and saw you, he would follow you and believe in you. So please make dua for him.
Say the band aid to the process and make dua for my father. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Nam, a stone fula who? Yes, I will ask forgiveness for him. For in who you are who yo malkia Mati mutton wahoo This is that Hadees he will come on the Day of Judgment with his own on by himself. One man oma one person, that's it. This is sorry, event, they have been sorry as a div and I'm going to fade and essentially that is really the all of the other Hadith is by and large repetitions, and that's all he has ever had it barely four or five haidet and with this, we come to the conclusion of the Ashura mobis Shara who are promised genda next week, I will take a break I will not be in
Memphis as explained to you I will be traveling.
inshallah, we'll come back and resume after two Wednesdays and we will continue some of the more famous Sahaba then we'll move on to the mothers of the believers inshallah. Tada. So we will have a few more months of the Sahaba
mothers and babies inshallah Tada.
