Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad Ali he will be mine about. So today inshallah Tada, we will be starting our series of Roma mahapatra the lockdown and we're still continuing on the series of the Sahaba and the same disclaimers that I gave with a walker. So therefore the law one will also give with Roman will hop. And that is that this is not in any way meant to be a detailed biography of the Sahaba the level of detail I went into in this unit, I'm not going to repeat what the Sahaba and we're just going to go over briefly, the life and times of each of the Sahaba that we're going to choose. And also this is

00:00:54--> 00:01:32

not a detailed analysis of their khilafah so when you do a boycott of Manali rhodiola, and we're just gonna go over an overview of the main points of their khilafah. Otherwise, the fact of the matter is for most Muslims, it does get a little bit tedious, frankly, even boring to go over all of the details of the khilafah and the politics and what decisions they made and whatnot. That's something that for the history students is interesting for us as average Muslims, we just want to have bits and pieces and just to know our basic history, in a roundabout manner. So inshallah tada we're going to spend maybe two three weeks on hormonal photography a lot one and then move on to

00:01:33--> 00:02:18

Earth man and I literally love Adam and so on and so forth. So I'm going to hop up today we begin with the basics, his background, his family life, and his story of Islam. I'm gonna be the hot top is the son of obviously the hot dog even newfane even Abdullah Rosa, Maria bin Abdullah bin Porat even Rosa even Id even can't even lie even harder. The main point is he meets with the process and I'm at gap even though I and that is a two generations gathered below a is eight generation so Romo de la Juan meets with the Prophet says I sent him after eight generations and therefore amongst the four halifa. He is the one who has the farthest distance in genealogy. What are the lohana six

00:02:19--> 00:03:00

earthman has basically three or four depending on the brothers if you want to go back to and of course it is of course the grandson of Abdulmutallab. So he is a cousin of the profits I sell them. So amongst the four are mobile hotspot belongs to the bundle ID and the bundle ID goes back eight generations if you like to merging with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the clan that drama, hubbub belongs to the sub clan is the bundle ID and the bundle ID was not of the top clans of the orange. It's not like the omiya it's not like the bundle omiya it's not like the bundle of them enough. It's not like a bundle Hashem. It's one of the lesser known ones, and their most famous

00:03:01--> 00:03:14

person before the coming of Islam. Their most famous person from that tribe was Zaid, Eben amber Eben newfane. And Zaid Ibn Ahmed, Eben newfane. is who is you can remind me who is Ada but I'm having to fight.

00:03:15--> 00:03:16

Who is a David I'm going to fail.

00:03:19--> 00:03:20

The what?

00:03:22--> 00:03:25

Okay, and move on here in the right direction.

00:03:27--> 00:03:30

What is the main point about data but I'm going to offend that everybody should No

00:03:32--> 00:03:34

no, no, no, no, that's way back. That's

00:03:38--> 00:04:29

exactly. They did an AMA live in newfane was one of the 400 far before the coming of Islam. He was of the four people who rejected idolatry and he is the most famous of them. He is the most famous of them. Another one is what I have been no fun. So zaidan what I've got and a group of them they rejected idolatry. And they did an AMA even newfane is a first cousin of Roma. I thought it'd be no fail. Okay, so no fail. The grandfather has two sons or he has many sons. Those two sons are hardtop and data armor and hot oven. I'm going to have romans eight. So Omar and Zaid are first cousins, but there is a huge age gap between them maybe even 4050 years age gap. Okay, so, Zaid, even Ahmed bin

00:04:29--> 00:04:56

newfane is far older than Bob and he dies before the coming of Islam. So, Omar is a young man when Islam comes as we're going to come to and his very older cousin Zaid already passes away before the coming of Islam. So they they've been hammered by the way so he's a first cousin of Mr McCullough top. And he is also the most famous of those who NFR who rejected idolatry and

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

refuse to worship other than Allah.

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

And the Prophet system met him as a young man. And he asked him, What is the matter between you and your people? And Zaid said, I refuse to worship these idols, I will follow the religion of Ibrahim. So this is a phenomena. This is the older cousin of or malignant Fatah, the Allahu taala. And who, and or whatever hotel was born, we don't know exactly 111 early book says 13 years after the hedgerow. And this seems to make sense is this the dominant opinion that he was younger than the process and by 13 years, so he's younger than abubaker by 11 years. Okay, so he's 13 years younger than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And the descriptions that are given in the books of

00:05:38--> 00:06:20

history is that he was a light skinned man with a reddish tone on his skin color. And he had deep eyes, and large hands and feet, and he was taller than the average member of the kurush. And, of course, everybody knows this about Omar, he had a strong muscular build. So his body is automatically You know, there are people that are very muscular and strong. Omaha top was like this since his, since his youth, and his beard as well, was a large, full beard, and he usually dyed it with henna. So generally, it was a reddish tinge because he would always put a hand on it. And it is also mentioned that he had a large mustache as well, and that he would twirl the mustache as men do

00:06:20--> 00:06:30

when they're thinking something. So he would be twirling that mustache or the lower eyelid. I knew, his grandfather knew faisaliah binominal sorry, or whatever the hobbit middlefield. Remember,

00:06:31--> 00:07:17

his grandfather newfane was of the leaders of the courage of his time, of no face time. And he had a part of the dadada najwa and the inner circles of the Quraysh. However, his father does not seem to have played any prominent role whatsoever. We hardly have any mention of a hot tub or whatever. We have hardly any mention of a hot tub. And the only thing that we know about him and we're going to come to this to the wire is that he was a very harsh man, a very bitter or a crude man, and harsh to his own family. That's the only thing we know. And most likely he even died before the coming of Islam because he's never mentioned at all after the coming of Islam. So in all likelihood, he seems

00:07:17--> 00:07:49

to have already gone away from the scene before the coming of Islam, because he is not mentioned at all as an enemy or as a friend or anything. His name is simply not found. So the only logical assumption would be that he is no longer around when Islam comes. roamers father sorry, Omar's mother was by the name of hum Palmer hematoma. And she was from the Qureshi sub clan of the bundle masoom and who is the most famous person of the bundle maka zoom? Who can remind us the bundle buffer zone.

00:07:51--> 00:07:53

Very good. Harlequin worried Who else?

00:07:56--> 00:07:57

Who else?

00:07:59--> 00:08:08

No, that's the zoom. Now Burma zoom is not the mega dynasty, but somebody else holiday worried and you should know.

00:08:09--> 00:08:12

Buddha had exactly see I knew you. Right? No, he's

00:08:14--> 00:08:23

a Buddha Hill is from the bottom of zoom. Okay. So, Omar, his mother was a first cousin of Abu Jamal.

00:08:25--> 00:09:12

So Abu Jamal and Omar are related bloodwise Okay. So Abuja has first cousin is almost mother. And so Abuja had an Omar have a blood relationship between them through the mother's side. As is typical, we know very little about the childhood of Ramadan. As is typical, we understand and who's going to remember this, these stories and whatnot. What we do know is that he was one of the very few people who learned how to read and write in the days of Jamelia. It is said that when Islam came barely a dozen or maximum of 15 to 20, people knew how to read and write in Makkah, because there was no need to read and write in that society, or Merhaba was one of those who knew how to read and write before

00:09:12--> 00:09:51

the coming of Islam. And this demonstrates that Mr. Malhotra was into education into intellectual sciences. Otherwise, there's no need to learn reading and writing and that society in the whole city you have a dozen people who know how to read and write, or Manuel hapa is one of those people and like most young men at the time, he grew up working as a shepherd. He grew up working as a shepherd that was his first occupation. And it was the occupation of most young men when they are growing up in that society. And we learned this because of a number of of things that he himself said later on in his life. Again, who's going to record the story of Omar what he himself said this is what we

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

know about him. So it is narrated the one of the years when he was the halifa when he went for Hajj as the halifa and he passed by

00:10:00--> 00:10:51

Particular Valley on the way to Mecca, he passed by particular Valley. And he paused when he saw this valley. And he remarked la in, in La la la la de la creme, how magnificent any or how great is the one who gives what he wishes to whomever he wishes. I remember in this valley, I used to come now here's the halifa now of the world that is now conquering the sassanid Empire conquering the Byzantine Empire. Now he is on your mobile hip hop halifa to ameerul momineen. And he sees this valley, and he says La Ilaha Illa. Allah, this was the same Valley, where as a young man, I would be a shepherd to the camels of a hot tub, his father, and my uncles and aunts from the bernama zoom. So

00:10:51--> 00:10:54

he would be a shepherd for his own father's flock. And for the

00:10:56--> 00:11:37

animals of the boombox zoom has uncles and aunts of the bundle Mark zoom, and I used to feed them in this very Valley. And I'll hop off, so he's reminiscing now. And this is the only thing we know about a hot tub. This line is the only thing we know. And a hot dog was a very harsh and brutal man. He would rebuke me even if I worked hard. And if I didn't, he would beat me. I was the only phrase we don't have a thought, okay, that he was extremely harsh with, even with his family and his children's, and the laquan remarked, and at times, I would spend the whole night alone over here with no one other than Allah subhana wa Tada. In other words, you can imagine as the halifa he goes

00:11:37--> 00:12:18

into the valley, and all of a sudden all these memories come back of 50 years ago, when he was a young man. And now Where is he now as the halifa. So he goes back and it was there were times I would spend the whole night alone. Nobody in this whole valley other than Allah subhana wa tada with me, everybody is I'm all by myself. And now look at where I am and the position that I have. So this shows us that Romo de la one, began his career as a shepherd, which was the common thing of the time. And it is also mentioned in the books of history, that once in his finanza, he called the people to the masjid and he stood on the member, and he gave a short, quotable. And in it, he said,

00:12:19--> 00:13:06

Oh, people, I remember clearly the days in which I used to take the Campbells of my uncles and aunts from the boom of zoom. And all I would get in return for all of that labor was a handful of barley or dried dates, and how difficult those days work. So the whole day, or to be honest more than a whole day because when you're shepherding camels, it's not a few hours, you will go for two or three days, and then you will come back. So he would go and come back and all he would get is a handful of barley, or a handful of dry dates. And that was a difficult life, when he came off of the member of the Ramadan now said, Yeah, ameerul momineen What was the point of that? When all you did was you

00:13:06--> 00:13:07

put yourself down?

00:13:08--> 00:13:24

Where what was the Why did you call the people and you gave a hold the book to put yourself down. So he said, I felt something stir in my heart. And the thought came to me or Omar, who is better than you. And so I wanted to put myself in my place

00:13:25--> 00:14:05

that I gave the hood but to tell the people who I am so that they don't think this was was a shade on came and put shaitaan comes in does was was to all of us. So she thought put what's what's up, and Omar thought to himself who is better than you? So they said I need to put myself down in my place. So he called the people who was I was the shepherd. I used to be a an of course being a shepherd is a very, very humble thing. It's not something that you boast or brag about, it's putting himself down that I used to be a shepherd and I would work and I would just get a handful of barley or dates as my as my recompense or remuneration. That was my salary to get a handful of dates. And

00:14:05--> 00:14:39

this difficulty and also the father's harshness, perhaps also explains a little bit about Omar's own characteristic of the law one yet as we shall see, he was known for being very strict and harsh. He was known and Islam needed that strictness for its place. But underneath was a core of softness and mercy and we will see this inshallah to Allah today and throughout the next few lessons as well. Eventually he moved on from being a shepherd, it is narrated that he would regularly attend the suit of cov and what is the so called a gal who can remind me what is the akov souk

00:14:41--> 00:14:43

is the poetry when did it take place?

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

No, not in front of the GABA and Mina, in Mina, it will take place and the head season, the the most famous poets would be their poetry is posted on the Kaaba. Yes

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

But the lockout takes place after the days of minutes. After days of hedge, it takes place, and the poet's would come, and there will be these gatherings. So the fact that a lot of the a lot one who is attending those gatherings is a demonstration that he is basically getting an education, because that's the education of the time. That is the only education of the time to be a part of that, that gathering and listen to the poetry and participate. So mercato began attending those gatherings. Eventually, he became a caravan manager. And he would take the letter, she thought it was safe to Syria, and to Yemen. And this earned him some wealth. Over the course of the next few years, he

00:15:40--> 00:16:20

becomes a regular caravan person, and he learns the tricks of the trade and he becomes a businessman. And therefore, this earned him a good amount of wealth, not enough to make him what we will call rich or wealthy, but enough to be what we would call basically middle class. So he worked hard out of sheer poverty. And Allah bless him even before Islam to basically become something of a middle class, basically, wealth wise. So he was not very rich, like, eventually, our fourth man became very rich, he was not of that ever, but neither was he extremely poor. Some of the Sahaba were even less true than those were very poor. Rather, he was of those who was

00:16:21--> 00:17:07

middle class. And he worked his way up from being extremely impoverished into something of this of this nobility. And eventually, because of his efforts, and because of his character, the Quraysh appointed him to be something of an ambassador, a Sofia and Ambassador, and he began involved in representing the Irish and other tribal treaties. So he was chosen to basically and the books mentioned a number of not not relevant to our class, but he was sent on a number of disputes, to represent Porush and to hack out an agreement with another tribe, to negotiate terms with another tribe. And of course, all of this, Allah is preparing him for what for political leadership, Allah

00:17:07--> 00:17:51

is preparing him to become the halifa. Why did the chorus choose him, it's obvious, he was not going to budge. He was going to preserve the rights of the Polish, he wasn't going to compromise easily. He has the character that is needed in an ambassador that is not going to give away the rights of the Quran, and he will get as much as the whorish needed. And this also shows us one thing about oberhalb, which was very known in him his loyalty to whatever cause he was with. He was a very sincere, a very loyal person. And this loyalty, this this sincerity, this faithfulness, this is why he was initially opposed to Islam and the Muslims, because he's loyal to his people, not because he

00:17:51--> 00:18:34

was loving of the gods. So his opposition to Islam was not theological. It was cultural. And there's a big difference. What will hotdog was not of those who was passionate about the gods. Rather, the reason why are more of the law, one was persecuting the Muslims was because he felt the Muslims are breaking away from his society, from the origin and from the ways of his ancestors. That was why he tortured and he and he did what he did. And in fact, even before it is mentioned in abundance, help that his father on top would be very harsh with

00:18:35--> 00:19:13

Zaid ebin, I'm willing to fail, who is much cousin, right, his father, Bob would be very harsh with his own nephew, because it is his nephew, his brother's son, and he would rebuke him and be very angry at him for having left the ways of his forefathers. And this is they never became a Muslim per se because Islam never came in his time. By the way, we talked about zaidan. We said, say the Chatelet, the processor himself, he said he will be in general on his own meaning his own oma nobody will be with zayde as an oma because he's his own oma. He didn't believe in the process because his before his time, but he rejected everything else. So they this agenda representing his own oma,

00:19:13--> 00:19:55

right so this is Zaid is the cousin of Bob. So, our mother's father was harsh, woodsy and rebuked him. And perhaps even more than just rebuke of the books basically say it was extremely harsh with his nephew. So this kind of trickled down to him as well, that I'm going to have Bob felled the Muslims are leaving my the way of my forefathers and therefore he was extremely anti Islam, because it was breaking the ranks of his society. It is also mentioned and he himself mentions this that as a young man, he was into wine and bad company this way he himself mentioned that said I would go and drink with the other youth of the time and bad company. And this is the reality of most young young

00:19:55--> 00:20:00

people in Lamar rahima book that the reality is at that age on fortune

00:20:00--> 00:20:26

The riffraff and the the hormones and everything. It's all kicks in. And this is not a justification is the reality that most young people find it very difficult to be even righteous according to their own standards and Armando hottub. himself, he wrote the Allahu anhu, he mentioned this, that I would be of those who would be in the company of that group of people, and drinking and whatnot. And nonetheless, this isn't the days of jelly. And Elisa has forgiven all of that.

00:20:27--> 00:20:41

Another another story narrated about Tim and this is a very important story to bring up. It is an infamous story. And all of us have heard this story. And that is the story of him having buried his daughter alive

00:20:43--> 00:21:30

in the days of Jay Z, and we've all heard this story. And the story goes as follows. In case you haven't heard it, the story goes as follows that I'm going to hop, wood, narrate in detail, the story that his wife gave birth, and she hid it from him for a while, because she knew the temperament of Omar. And then one day, it was discovered, and the baby was playing with him and playing with his beard and everything. And he very crudely, the details are there, they threw in the pit, and he and he buried and everything. Now this story is mentioned and all of us narrated. But the fact of the matter is, it is not found in any classical book of biographies of history. It is

00:21:30--> 00:22:20

not found in any book, written in the original era of Islam, or the first five 600 years, we don't find this story at all. And it does seem to be a complete fabrication to be honest. And one needs to realize are honorable hautala, the law one is despised by a group of Muslims and the non Sunni Muslims, they do not like him at all. And it is not too far fetched that these types of stories are put into circulation, by people who do not like our material help out with their loved one. The fact of the matter is that this story appears to be a complete fabrication, for many reasons. Most importantly, number one, it is not mentioned with any it's not not even a fabricated. It's not in

00:22:20--> 00:22:29

any classical biography, or work of early Islamic history is not mentioned in a thought buddy and had been copied. And as a hobby. It's not mentioned in

00:22:30--> 00:22:41

the hobby, basically, all of the biographical dictionaries of the Sahaba that are well known, you can go look them up, they don't have this story, it does not have it. And in fact, this story, it is actually

00:22:42--> 00:22:51

made popular by modern people. So for example, the Arabs here know of this person, I bust my iPod, the famous.

00:22:53--> 00:22:56

I didn't mention his nationality, or the one who wants to bring it in.

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

The famous

00:23:02--> 00:23:22

writer, poet, any self professed failure, failure, Sue, for me, is just a DB any person of adverb. He's not an island. Nobody considers him as an island. And frankly, he has shared that is also a bit bizarre and weird. He's just a When did he die 1960 or something, he died last generation. And

00:23:23--> 00:24:08

he just wrote a number of books. He's This is perhaps the source where the story becomes popular. Now, who is an app pod? To be an authority on multiple hotels, biography, obviously, nothing, you go back to the authoritative books is not mentioned. So this is the main point. Another point is that the tribe and the reason I go into detail is because we need to, we need to expel this rumor. And all of you should be aware that this is a lie. It is simply not true that America did not stop for the Lord killing his own daughter, even though if he did in the days of Jehovah, he is forgiven, you understand in the desert, but still, it is something that is inhumane.

00:24:09--> 00:24:12

And it's something that is difficult to imagine.

00:24:13--> 00:24:57

Even a cafard who doesn't believe in the Day of Judgment doing this, right. It's something only the worst of the worst to do. And honorable hotdog is not guilty of it. That's the point. So what is another evidence for this? The fact that his tribe, the bundle ID we're not known for this practice. Yes, it was found. But it was not the bundle ID, the bundle ID were not of those who practice this. And there are plenty of women in this tribe who are well known, including his own sister, Fatima, Fatima, and many others of the women of the idea are alive. And from that era, nobody's killing them. Okay. And his firstborn. Another evidence that this light has to be a lie. his firstborn child

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

is none other than half saw

00:25:01--> 00:25:40

And half so was born pre Islam at least five years before Islam hafsa is born before Islam. So why is he alive? In fact his kunia is our house so Romero de la and was Kenya has a house there is no house he didn't have a house but because generally the Cuneo was for the male and half so was born and she's female. So the name is converted to a male and he becomes a little house, his corneas our house. So he's proud that he's able house yet hafsa is alive and she's a girl, pre Islam, which shows what

00:25:41--> 00:26:03

he's not going around killing his own daughters. Okay, this is perhaps the most obvious evidence that the story simply cannot be true. And then there is a final evidence and it is a hadith narrated in a tapa. Ronnie's more German Kabir and I bought it myself too so that you can just read it directly. It is

00:26:05--> 00:26:54

Hadith on volume 18 page 337 where it is mentioned by a note might have been Bashir that I heard Omaha Bob asked about the ayah what is Elmo? Ooh, that was it. Somebody asked Mr. Malhotra about the ayah what is Elmo ooda to shoot he lets you all know the ayah right when the one who is the baby girl that is killed is asked or I'm gonna hop responded. pious, even awesome came to the Prophet sallallahu idea he was sending them and said, I killed eight of my own daughters in La Jolla. Omar is narrating that he even asked him said to the process of I killed eight daughters enjoy helia What do I do? So the Prophet Solomon said, free for every one of those eight, a slave.

00:26:55--> 00:26:59

So he said, I don't have slaves, but I have camels.

00:27:00--> 00:27:17

So the problem said, okay, find a bandana, which is a type of female camel that is very pricey. Find the burner, and free eight burners, one for each. Now, this hadith tells us that Omar rhodiola. One is narrating that another person

00:27:19--> 00:27:21

did this to his own daughters.

00:27:22--> 00:28:08

This indicates he didn't do it, or else he would have himself narrated a story about himself. It also indicates that if he had done anything, he would have had to also give the button or the photo. And he didn't do that. So all of these evidences put together clearly indicate that the story of Roma called Bob, murdering his own daughter is simply false. It never happened. And it needs to be erased from our literature and our vernacular, unfortunately, people, they keep on quoting this, and it is simply not true. And will lie if you think about it, it's just not possible to imagine a person of dignity doing this to his own daughter is simply not possible. And so to accuse him of

00:28:08--> 00:28:40

doing this, or the law, and especially the vivid detail, by the way, and this is why a number of our modern scholars have said this is a fabrication from the other group, because the vivid detail that she was clinging to me and you know, she's crying as I put her and I mean, really, you know, I mean, it's such like a mellow, dramatic, you know, scene out of a vicious, you know, this is this is not you You see what I'm saying here, it's not something that even makes sense that a man would even tell all of these details and and you know, life goes on doesn't work that way. You cannot do this, you know.

00:28:42--> 00:28:47

That's what I'm saying that he was playing with my beard and cleaning the beard. All of this has mentioned any

00:28:48--> 00:29:21

job, it doesn't make any sense really, right? It goes against human intellect reason, it goes against common sense, what law you don't even need all of these other things, but put together and I go into detail because unfortunately is too common to hear this story. And it is simply not true. But I'm going to hop over the law, one might have done things in his youth of drinking wine and whatnot, which is what everybody did. But he did not murder his own daughter. And that's something that needs to be eliminated from our literature. So that

00:29:22--> 00:29:23

was your question.

00:29:24--> 00:29:59

So, the so the next point is what so this is really all that we know about his early life in terms of marriage and family. So Omaha top we have references of him marrying at least seven women throughout the course of his life, at least seven women throughout the course of his life. Of course, three or four of them were divorced in the days of Jay Haley as was common. And again, this was the culture of marriage divorce, marriage divorce, no woman remained single. Whenever she was divorced. Somebody else would marry her so called top married at least seven women and he probably even had one or two concubines as well and from his first

00:30:00--> 00:30:24

Wife, he had his two most famous children, and that is hafsa and Abdullah bin Omar. Okay from his first wife. So how is his firstborn and Abdullah ibn Omar, the famous Eben Omar Abdullah bin Omar is the full brother of hafsa from the same mother, and we're not going to go over all seven women we're not going to go over all the children or that simply to one is all mentioned in the books of history.

00:30:25--> 00:31:06

But his last wife, his last wife that he married was on Mikkel film bintelli ibn Abu Talib, omeka zoom, Binti Ali, even the polyp and this was the last wife that he married. And the story goes that he proposed to the daughter of Abu Bakar, acidic now he's the halifa ibaka has passed away, and I will work with acidic daughter, the younger the younger sister of Artesia and asthma. Okay, so remember we talked about what to do. So he had the youngest daughter, he proposed to this young youngest daughter, and he was the halifa. And she refused.

00:31:07--> 00:31:08

So I'm not going to marry.

00:31:10--> 00:31:21

Her older sister says, you're going to turn down a mute on meaning. You're going to turn off the middle Vinnie. And she said, Yes, he lives a too frugal lifestyle.

00:31:23--> 00:31:24

Think about it.

00:31:25--> 00:31:27

Men and women all the time, the same issues.

00:31:29--> 00:31:57

She is saying his lifestyle is below my standards. And she is the daughter of a walker. Human nature, nothing wrong. A woman wants a comfortable lifestyle. And she goes I don't want to live that lifestyle. Okay, and maybe as well so whatever she felt he she doesn't want to live that lifestyle. So he obviously is not very happy at this. So one of his friends says, Okay, I'll give you someone better than her. I'll tell you somebody better than her. Only good film Binti Holly,

00:31:59--> 00:32:42

because she will connect you with the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem, because oma consume is of course the daughter of Fatima. She is the full So, of course, has said in her saying are the only two sons but realize that they had daughters as well. Right. They had daughters as well. They had Zainab. So Zainab is the daughter and Zainab is the granddaughter of the prophets was Adam. Okay, Xena was the daughter and Xena was the granddaughter. So their eldest daughter is Xena. And they have a comical film as well. So or whatever hottub proposed for this oma costume. And Ali rhodiola. One was hesitant because she felt he felt she is too young.

00:32:43--> 00:33:04

He felt she was too young. And Omar said, Senator Toomey, let me see if we can work it out or whatnot. Let's see. And he felt that she is old enough. And so I Lee then agreed after they both talked earlier then agreed and said okay, she is your wife then. So omega thumb became the wife of

00:33:05--> 00:33:14

a mobile hotspot de la Juana and they had children together as well. And this and this your ham Kamala and this is a huge

00:33:16--> 00:33:35

How should we phrase this destruction of the myths that is propagated by the other group that Amaro De La Hoya and others are the LA one had some tensions between them. They are father and last son in law, the marriage of oma consume too early to sorry to Romero de la Juan produces children.

00:33:36--> 00:34:18

And so there are children that have kababs blood and alleys blood. How can you say that there was any animosity and hatred between them? This is nonsensical from our perspective. In any case with this was his final wife that he married Mickelson. And what is interesting to note, his point for marrying her was to have a connection with the lol baits. How can he be anti lol bait when he wants to marry from the lol bait? Because it's an honor for him to marry from the family of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam right? So again, the whole narrative that the other side presents simply does not fit into history. It rhodiola Weinberg gave his daughter omega three. Yes, he was hesitant but not

00:34:18--> 00:34:26

because it was Omar because he felt she was too young. And when they both agreed, they said okay, that's fine with me. So

00:34:28--> 00:34:40

therefore, married Omakase woman, she was the last of his wife. She was the last of his wives. Now, there's also mentioned a number of narrations are found in the books of history that Omar in fact remarked that he

00:34:42--> 00:35:00

let's just say so there are some explicit remarks here that he's not interested in women. And he's not interested in marriage, except for one reason, children. So he's saying that I'm not interested in that act at all. It doesn't at all interesting

00:35:00--> 00:35:43

But I want to have children. And in fact, he said in one of the narrations and I read from it goes, I don't have any desire for women. Were it not for children and work not for having children. I wouldn't mind if I never saw another woman in my life. Okay, so his reason for marrying, was not the reason that some of us always cracked jokes about getting married over and over again, without pointing fingers at Where's the other guy here? We're not gonna, we're not gonna find him. Okay, where's the main guy? He's not gonna say anything. Okay? So that's not the reason. He's saying the only reason for me is I want to have lots of kids. And Masha Allah, he had lots of kids, we know at

00:35:43--> 00:36:24

least 13 children that he had, at least and most likely more than this number. Okay, so he wanted to have lots of children. And Mashallah Allah blessed him with a lot of children. As they said, the books of history mentioned 13 names. We're not going to go over all of the Dory, but the two ones you should definitely know hafsa and Abdullah, these two play the most important role in this era. Others have very minor rules. Others are not even mentioned all this era, but have son Abdullah, or the alarms at home, of course have thought, of course, how slushies are mother, right. And then Abdullah bin Omar has so much role in the Sierra, he did so many things. He's one of the above data,

00:36:24--> 00:36:30

he's one of those who had is one of the famous Sahaba, one of the biggest narrators of Hadith. So this is Abdullah bin Omar

00:36:31--> 00:37:20

on As for his embracing of Islam, as far as embracing of Islam, what we know is that his brother and sister embraced Islam before him, his older brother, Zaid hotswap, embraced Islam before him. We don't have any details about when and how his aide embraced Islam, but they embraced Islam before him. And he's almost older brother, and he was the leader of the, the family. So Omar could not really do anything to save, because they the senior to him, and he's now in charge of uncle Bob's family, because he's the Senior Brother, Omar did not could not do anything to him. But his sister Fatima was younger than him. And he did not know of altimas Islam. And we'll get to her story right

00:37:20--> 00:37:56

now. Basically, that's the famous conversion story. That's his sister, Fatima. So Islam has entered his household before almost embraced it by both his brother and his sister. And as for his conversion story, we have a number of accounts. We have a number of accounts a number of different accounts. And we don't know should we make one story out of all of these accounts, or is one of them right, the others wrong? It appears that the actual conversion took place in the sixth year of the data, the sixth year of the DAO, which means the third year after Islam went public.

00:37:57--> 00:38:13

So three years, private, three years public, so the third year after Islam goes public, which means that his persecution against the Muslims is lasting for basically two and a half years. Okay. So his persecution was not very long, but two and a half years as well, by the way,

00:38:15--> 00:38:38

as well, by the way, it is not narrated that Omar rhodiola one ever killed any Muslim unlike a Buddha 100 others, right. And one of the hot Bob never like his his anger never went to the point of killing another convert. Yes, he was angry. Yes, he might have beaten physically one or two in a fight or whatever. But he did not

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

get to the level of torturing and killing. And that's a big difference with my with Abuja hall with others, you all know the stories will matter. That's a whole different category, or Omar's, harshness was more terrifying in his looks and his mannerisms than his actual doing. So as they say, his bark is louder than his bite, like, he was harsh in his demeanor. But in actual fact, we don't find that he's going around beating the Muslims that he's going around. Now we see in the story of his conversion of his sister. Anger overtakes him and he strikes her right, then what happens he feels guilty and calms down. This is somewhat of a hot topic, that the anger goes quick, but then

00:39:20--> 00:39:58

he's not the type to continue torturing until somebody dies. So it is not narrated, that are modeled the law why no harm somebody to the point of like permanently damaged you would not Yes, he got into scuffles. Yes, he was harsh before converting to Islam against the Muslims, and the Muslims are terrified of him. But it is not narrated that he actually harmed a Muslim to the point of to the point of execution or killing. So he accepts Islam in the sixth year of the Dawa in the month of June hedger when he is around 30 years old. His actual date is not known. We don't know exactly when he was born. Some says that 13 years after so one report says he was 27 years old when he converted,

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

but this doesn't make sense. If you go back

00:40:00--> 00:40:50

And figure out 13 years before they hit you, or sorry, before the after the incident of the elephant. If you do that mathematics, then it comes out to around 3033 years old, 32 years old. And this probably makes more sense. He's in his early 30s. He's in his early 30s when he converts to Islam, and his conversion takes place. Three days after the conversion of Hamza, or the last one, so Hamza and Omar rhodiola, hornos. Conversion together was a huge boost to the prestige of Islam. Because either one of these two is someone who is well established in the upper echelons of the kurush. In the networks, he's connected. He's not one of the people who's a nobody in the in the

00:40:50--> 00:41:19

hierarchy, like bilad and sohaib, or whatnot. No, these are people that are from the highest. And they are well known. So almost the ambassador, for example, of course, Hamza is the son of Abu Talib, enough of a prestigious Hamza is the son of algebra, enough of a prestige for him. That's all he needs. And Omar is the ambassador, and he is appointed and he is so the fact of the matter there conversions together was the biggest boost to Islam in early Islam.

00:41:20--> 00:41:52

Their conversion together is the biggest boost in early Islam. And according to one report, or multiple hubbub converted after 39 people, he was the 40th convert. Now these numbers need to be taken. Not precisely a science but as a generic figure, roughly 40 men, by the way, because they're counting men right now. So roughly 14 men have converted around what is the around 40th man in Mecca to convert. Now, there are certain signs of his conversion before he actually converts certain

00:41:53--> 00:42:11

permit issues that are going to take place and two of them are very clear. The first is his reaction to the immigration to Abyssinia. Now, Omar converted the day after or a few days after ham ribbon allows returned from Abyssinia

00:42:13--> 00:42:16

returned from avicennia trying to negotiate

00:42:18--> 00:42:19

what

00:42:20--> 00:42:59

the return the return of the Muslims from the king. Okay, remember the failure I'm going to build out so the same week basically our returns are more converts, okay. Now, therefore, a few months before this, the Sahaba have left. And the first time we notice maybe your own mother's heart is changing. Is that the departure of the Sahaba and the story is mentioned I gave it to you back when we were talking about this was it four years ago or something? So I'll repeat it again because of course the note taker of course has it all clearly in the notes. I didn't say anything negative by the way. Ha so your bed is off. It's positive. I said the note taker has it in his notes. That's the

00:42:59--> 00:43:42

praise is as appraised Okay, um, so in the the syrup in this house. We have an entire chapter, Islam Oh bla bla pop, the chapter of the conversion of murder blah, blah, the last one. So even as half even hishammuddin is hop has an entire chapter of six pages devoted to the story of Bob's conversion. And he has multiple stories. The problem is none of these stories has a fully authentic is not. They're all broken chains. That's the reality of the serum. Most of the cereal is broken chains. Most of the theater, you go back to the tab your own there's a tab there and then there's a gap. There's a 50 year 30 year 100 year gap who narrated her from so we don't know. So putting

00:43:42--> 00:44:04

together two or three of these stories. There's no contradiction at all. And he mentioned he mentioned so this is urbanist say narrating that urban Massoud said Abdullah bin Massoud said that we were not able to pray in front of the Kaaba until or what have been called top accepted Islam.

00:44:05--> 00:44:51

We were not able to pray in front of the Kaaba until the removal of accepted Islam. When he accepted Islam. He fought with the Quraysh until we were allowed to pray in front of the Kaaba, and we prayed with him. And the Islam of Omar was after the people who had emigrated to avicennia had emigrated to Abyssinia Okay, so this is a Massoud narrating way later on that an urban Miss route is the sixth convert Remember, it is a sixth convert to Islam. So even which road is narrating and then we will show it was not a chorus. She is a Yemeni, he is a hired worker. He's a manual laborer. He's a indentured servant. He's not a slave. But he's not fully free. He's kind of in limbo, lower class in

00:44:51--> 00:44:59

the hierarchy of the Arabs. So he is saying we could not pray in front of the camera. Only one person and pray in front of the camera and that is the problem.

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

I'm so sorry. Nobody else prayed nobody, until Omar converted. When Omar converted, then all of us could pray in front of the Kaaba because Omar prayed. So the prayer of Omar opened the door for the rest of us to be able to pray in front of the camera. And even was rude used to say, in Islam or Omar kind of attend, when the Hey Doctor Who can run when Mr. Otto who can attract mutton that the Islam of Omar was the first victory, and his emigration was the conquest. And his leadership was the mercy for the oma. So, Islam was a conquest. His hijra was a sort of his Islam was a victory. His hedgerow was a conquest. And his ruling over the oma was a mercy. And even as half mentions that it

00:45:57--> 00:46:51

isn't any gives us it's not to Omar Abdullah bin to be hasma. That he said, she said, when we were packing to go to the land of Abyssinia, and my husband, Ahmed had left the house to arrange the final matters, or almost have not hottub came until he saw us packing. Now, I mentioned this before many, many times, the concept of leaving your home to go to another home was unheard of. In these days, it was an exception, that typically meant that you have committed such a big crime, that your own people don't want you to live amongst themselves. It is impossible to imagine, for us how big of a deal it was that the Irish Muslims have to leave the pagan or Irish and the embarrassment to the

00:46:51--> 00:47:31

pagan kurush. That's why I'm going to be honest, is going to the negus hand over our people back because it's an embarrassment to the Irish that you can't take care of your own. You're letting them leave. You've you're you're you're hurting them so much that they voluntarily leave. It's not it's one thing to force somebody out there voluntarily leaving, right. So we are accustomed to moving from house to house, city to city. This is our culture, no that big of a deal. for their time. It was unheard of. And this is the first time a group of Arabs are leaving Arabia to go sell everything you imagine this first time ever. So she is packing. And she is pretty irritated, as understood. She

00:47:31--> 00:47:35

has to leave everything. And Bob comes and he is upon his ship.

00:47:36--> 00:47:45

And she herself says, we used to hear from him so much evil and so much harm from horrible hip hop. And

00:47:46--> 00:48:36

she said to her, where are you going? Oh, Omar Abdullah, what's up world is packing. And she is very irritated, very angry. You can imagine she's very hurt. She has to leave and whatnot. So her anger comes out at Omar. And she says now more law, you are the ones that have forced us out from the land of Allah, you have harmed us and you have irritated us and you have persecuted us until we have no choice other than to go out and see the land of Allah elsewhere. So her anger lashes out at unbearably hot top. So he said to her Sahiba como la which was a dog they would make. May Allah be with you. He makes an offer. May Allah be with you. And Omar Abdullah says, I saw from him a

00:48:36--> 00:49:15

softness that I had never seen before. In other words, he's moved that she is packing her bags and leaving. And he's making a genuine to ask for her. That may Allah be with you. Sahiba como la. And he turned around and when my husband came, I said, I told him the whole story and express my amazement to him. And my husband said to me, do you think that he is going to accept Islam? Do you think that he's close to Islam? I said yes. From what she had seen. So he responded, fella, you slimmer lady or at hat use limo Hey model, Bob.

00:49:17--> 00:49:23

This man that you saw, will never embrace Islam until the donkeys of his father embrace Islam.

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

Meaning Dream on with a until pigs fly until Hell Freezes Over is an expression, right? Obviously, that it's not going to happen because of the attitude that they had, that that they had become accustomed to. So this story shows us that underneath that veneer of harshness was what a soft heart. And when he realized how hard he had been, he felt guilty. He felt bad. And this might have been the beginnings of his Islam. There's another story mentioned as well.

00:50:00--> 00:50:32

Have pre Islam that seems to indicate that perhaps Ramana hubub had some premonition of things that would happen. And this story is mentioned and so I had Bahati and so I had bodies sohei obviously, and it is so is so helpful. Hadi has an entire chapter in the blessings of the Sahaba donsol chapter number 35. Babu Islam erodible hot top. So Emmanuel Buhari has an entire chapter entitled The Islam of mercato. This isn't cybersquatting. So from Sahib Hadi,

00:50:33--> 00:51:03

and he mentioned a number of narrations. And by the way, because we're talking about America, Bob, so I should mention these narrations, even though they are not directly relevant to what we're going to get to. But because this is Bahati and because we're talking about mental health all we need to know the narrations of Bob inside Bahati about his conversion. So Mr. Malhotra mentions with his is not even Massoud said, magazine. zetten Mundo Islam Omar. Ever since Omar accepted Islam we've always been in a state of Israel.

00:51:04--> 00:51:12

This is Eben Massoud saying that Omar's conversion marked for us the beginning of political Islam. And

00:51:13--> 00:51:17

he mentioned another another story that

00:51:18--> 00:51:28

Abdullah bin Omar mentions that once when I was a child, we were terrified in our houses of torture and persecution.

00:51:29--> 00:52:12

And the people were basically fighting my father until allows even why it came and also but what is the father of unbelievable loss, and also been what it was one of the most shrewd leaders and politicians and the Quran indirectly references a number of conversations with him in the prophet SAW Salem. And he was of those opponents who were kind of in the middle. Like I've mentioned this many times that the opponents of pre Islam were categories, you had the worst of the worst. These were Abuja, and Romania, and Abu lahab. These were the worst of the worst, vulgar crude, and generally speaking, none of them were guided to Islam, that category, none of them were guided to

00:52:12--> 00:52:58

Islam, then you had those that were relatively Noble. They didn't stoop to that level. And these were people like Abu sufian, for example, right? So he live in ama, for example. These were people that by and large, many of them were guided to Islam, then you had those that were in the middle. And the main reason they didn't accept Islam was because of Jehan de pride, not because of love of the gods. And examples of this are harder than Nero his father, an algorithm analysis father, okay, these two people represent this middle category of enemies. They never accepted Islam. But they had elements of good and decency in them. But their arrogance was too much that they felt themselves

00:52:58--> 00:53:03

above suffered a lot and in the profits of the Law Center and the message of the processor. So

00:53:05--> 00:53:48

the the people were basically arguing with with, with their own model, and an artist comes along and says, What is the matter? What is the matter? And Omar said, your people, meaning his own people, that's the way they also have your people, meaning our people have threatened to kill me. If I embrace Islam, he had already embraced Islam, if I'm racism, they're gonna they're threatened to kill me. So and also been what it said they have no authority over you. I will grant you the protection. So allowance is the nobleman What did the leaders of the parish allow says, I will give you my man, you cannot be harmed because I have now given you my protection, and so allowance was

00:53:48--> 00:53:58

one of those people who gave up protection in in early Islam. Now, the Hadith I wanted to I wanted to mention, I was an interesting Heidi's and

00:53:59--> 00:54:19

also narrated from Abdullah bin Omar that Abdullah bin Omar, the son of Rama, saying, I never heard my father say, I think except that whatever he thought turned out to be true. So his presumptions are always true. And one time Omar was sitting when a handsome man walked by.

00:54:21--> 00:54:22

And Omar said,

00:54:23--> 00:54:35

either I am wrong, or this person is still upon the religion of his ancestors, or he was the sorcerer for his people.

00:54:36--> 00:54:59

In other words, this is when he's Khalifa. And a Muslim passes by, and I'm one of the law one senses something is wrong with this man. And goes either this man is actually still a pagan, or the only other explanation. He was a magician or a fortune teller, I should say fortune teller. So call this man to me. So the man comes and

00:55:00--> 00:55:32

He is asked about the reality, and the man is insulted. And he said, I have never seen how in my life how a Muslim is being accused. You're accusing me of something. And Omar said, I command you to tell me the entire story. So the man said very well, I used to be their fortune teller in the days of Jamia. So it came out, because it's embarrassing other to Muslim to tell the people that you're a fortune teller. So Omar somehow knew. And

00:55:33--> 00:56:16

this is the concept of fear rasa. I talked about it a little bit in this era. Sometimes fear also means intuition. For us, it means you have an instinct that something is just beyond what it appears to be. And it is narrated that Baba himself said this is not a high need some people that have had the it's not 100 it doubled for us as many for enough rasa mini happen. This is not a hadith. It is a statement from Omar, fear the premonition or the intuition of a movement, because the intuition of a moment always tells you the truth. So Omar has an intuition. This guy's something is wrong with him. Either. He's still a pagan, or he was a fortune teller. And the fortune tellers had connections

00:56:16--> 00:57:04

with the jinns. So it turns out, he wasn't fortune teller. So Omar says to him, tell me what was the most amazing or the most strange thing your Genie ever said to you? In the days of Jerry Lee. So the fortune teller says that one time when I was in the school, my ginia came to me, all terrified, and said, Now the jinn speak in very difficult language. The jinn have a language whenever they speak in our language even it's not the same. It's a very harsh and the words they use are different. And so what he says in Arabic sounds very poetic in English is almost untranslatable, and I'm terrible. I'm terrible agenda what a blast. Haha. Well, yes, I mean by the encarsia. We'll see we'll see. Who can

00:57:04--> 00:57:05

translate amongst the Arabs.

00:57:07--> 00:57:10

Hi, I'm Tara jinda. What a blast haha.

00:57:11--> 00:57:13

Well, yeah, salmon by the encarsia

00:57:14--> 00:57:17

wooohooo habito para la si ha.

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

Anyone?

00:57:21--> 00:57:23

Huh? Okay.

00:57:26--> 00:57:39

The gist of it in one word. The jinn are desperate and scared. That's really what it is. Okay? So the jinn are now terrified. And the

00:57:41--> 00:58:27

and the, the the sorcerer, basically saying, so the Ginny told me that something different had happened in the world. And this was the most amazing thing in my career as a fortune teller, that the genie itself was terrified, rather than the other way around. So Bob said, You have spoken the truth. Something happened with me as well in that timeframe. The same timeframe, something happened with me, this is the story that we need to get us we'll go all over this detail. Okay, one time when I was sleeping in front of one of the idols, so he's sleeping for the cat but there's the idol. When a man came and slaughtered a an animal, a cow or a goat in front of the the idol, and the idol

00:58:27--> 00:58:49

shrieked a sound I have never heard in my life. So of course the idol is not shrieking, the genie shrieking inside the idol, okay, the idol doesn't speak with the Jitney incited. Speak. I have never heard a more terrifying sound. shriek and it shrieked. Who's going to translate this now? Yeah, Julia Cameron, Nigeria. Rajan. foreseer.

00:58:50--> 00:59:04

Yeah, Julia Cameron, Nigeria. Raja Luna. In other words, oh, so and so who is in front of me? On a new matcher has come. A new thing has come. an eloquent man has appeared.

00:59:05--> 00:59:09

And the man is saying La Ilaha. illa Anta

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

and promotable katabi saying it was only a matter of time. It was only a matter of time. Before we heard there is a nebby amongst us after this incident. Okay, now this hadith is in Bahati. And the point of the Hadith is pretty obvious. And that is that Rama hottub in his pre Islamic days, his saying you know, I to have an interesting story to tell you that I heard the idol. And it wasn't the idol of course it was the genie of the idol. The idol say that a new thing has happened. An amazing occurrence has occurred. an eloquent to man is calm, and he is preaching La ilaha illa Allah and it goes right after this. We began to hear there is an A be sent to us. And that is, of course the

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

coming of the Prophet salallahu alaihe

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

What's happening? So these are premonitions, of course of the acceptance of Islam. As for his actual convergence story, then two stories are narrated two stories are narrated about the actual conversion of avoidable hottub. And both of them are with broken chains. Both of them are broken chains. The first of them is in the first person, and I'll quote you directly from ebony shammas in a sham or in his heart as well. Volume One page 346. So this is directly from a been a sham, who says from within his house called viously, that

01:00:35--> 01:00:39

someone narrated to me basically, that Islam of Omar was in this manner.

01:00:42--> 01:01:22

So he gives the story of the Islam of Roma that Omar narrated his his Islam, that Omar said that I was very far from Islam. And I was a person who used to drink wine. Enjoy heylia Welcome to Sahiba hominin. Future Hillier. This is Omar narrating, I used to drink wine in jelenia. And I would love it and drink it all the time. And I would have a group of men from the chorus that I would gather with, because that's what they do, right? The young men, that's what they do, they waste their time and they drink and they these days, they're smoking their whatever joints or whatever. That's what men do. Unfortunately, most people they don't have the, the that someone is doing this as well. And

01:01:23--> 01:02:06

we used to do it in the house of stone. So he mentioned the name. So one evening, I left my house, and I went to the house or so and so but I couldn't find them there. So I said, let me go to the one who sells the wine, the hamato I'll go and get it from him. And there was one man in Makkah primarily who was the one who was making the wine and selling it. So I went there and I could not find him either he was not there in his house. He whatever was not there. So I said okay, in this case, let's be then go to the cabinet and do tawaf Don't ask me why from Hamas, tawaf, Yanni, this is the ways of jelenia Okay, if I can't do that, okay, it's the middle of the night images guto off

01:02:06--> 01:02:52

from the cabin. So he went to the cabin to do tawaf. And then he says, I found the Prophet sallallahu. It said, I'm standing in front of the Kaaba praying. And when he would pray, he would face a sham, and he would place the cabinet between himself and a sham. And he would pray between the local password and the broken Yamani, because that's the direction of Syria. So he was facing Syria and Sham which is made to mock this and also the GABA. So I said, when I told myself when I saw him, I said, tonight, let me hear what he is actually saying. Let me hear what he's actually saying. So I snuck out very quietly, so as not to disturb him. And I came from the other side from

01:02:52--> 01:03:38

the edge of from the edge of side. So he goes the other side of the Kava, because he doesn't want to walk, so that he can see him. So he goes to all the way the other side, and he said, I went slowly fragile to shoot away Then I went walking slowly, for the whole time to be here. I entered under the cloth of the cab to be because the process of standing were literally in front and his Dilawar is not going to be in a loud voice. He said, I will be in a somewhat hushed voice, right. So he entered the zenith of the Kava, and in those days, the graph was not tied down as it is now. It's just from the top. So he comes underneath, and it goes I kept on going until finally I was in front of the

01:03:38--> 01:03:56

prophets of the law while he was setting them and I heard him reciting, and had to come to filterability. He was stuck Villa until I was standing in front of him in his fibula, ma vainio Urbina who alethia will cover the only thing between me and him was the

01:03:57--> 01:04:46

theater, half of the cabinet, right. So this is an interesting first person story. So he said, Phantom is a miracle or Ana Raka, who will be Ferber key to what the hanani Islam. When I heard the profitsystem, reciting the Quran, my heart became soft. And I began to cry. And that was the first time I entered Islam meaning I thought of accepting Islam. That was the first time I entered Islam. And I continued standing there mesmerized until the profitsystem finished his prayer and turned and left. So over the hubbub is still behind the laugh, mesmerized with what he had heard. And the prophecies and when he would go home he would exit from the doubt if anybody has seen a been a be

01:04:46--> 01:05:00

Hussein until he went to a massage. Then he went to the data of my boss and so he's saying the direction of how the process went home and I began to follow him home. I began to follow him home until the Profit System heard my

01:05:00--> 01:05:36

footsteps. And he turned around and said murgia abiko. Yep, no katabi Hadassah. What are you doing at this time? You have no hot top? What are you doing following me? At this time, I notice will lay the bravery of the process of never once Jen, is there an actual terror like there's such you're clean such tawakkol this was more of a hot tub in the middle of the night, turns around faces and talks to him point blank. What are you doing following me at this time. And Bob says, This is the other story right? This is not the famous one. Bob says that

01:05:37--> 01:06:18

I have come to believe in you and to believe in Allah and to believe in you or rasulillah. And to believe in the revelation that Allah has come with. So he praised Allah subhana wa Tada. And he put his hand on my chest and made for me, and I entered into the house of the process of so this is one version. It is not the version that most of you have heard. But it is also found in him in his house. And it is in the first person. The other version, which you all know in a lot of detail, so I'm not going to read it for you. It's also found in him in his house. They're both independence house, right. And that version is all known to you. And that is the version of Omar will hop up one

01:06:18--> 01:07:06

day becoming so frustrated, especially after the Islam of Hamza, so the Islam of Hamza actually depressed him because he felt his people are being split. Because Hamza now is a Muslim. So he feels this is a cause for for, for basically the his oma splitting up. And so he said, I will go and basically, you know, execute the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And so I took brandishing my sword. And I met him even Abdullah, who was one of the early converts and he had hidden his Islam. So he said, Where are you going? You're Omar with the sword. So he said, What do you do? Mohammedan harder. sobre la de farakka Morocco. Rajesh was Sufi, Allah Maha. Abba Dena was sub de Hata. I want

01:07:06--> 01:07:51

this man Mohammed Salim, who has left his faith and broken the Quran, and considered its most noble to be foolish. So notice, why is he angry? Primarily? Eventually, he says and what marks the idols? But what is the main reason he's angry? breaking my community, considering its elite to be misguided? This is what is painting me. And so for aktueller who I will kill him. So no, I am said, You have fooled yourself or Omar? Do you really think the bundle of them enough will leave you alive walking on this earth? After you kill their Mohammed? Why don't you go back to your own house and fix your own affairs before you go and meddle in the affairs of the moonwalk enough? So he said what

01:07:51--> 01:08:06

do you mean my affairs? What to my affairs? And of course this one No, I am said Don't you know, your own brother in law and cousin. So his brother in law was his cousin and his cousin

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

was

01:08:09--> 01:08:27

sad. Even Zaid, even Ahmed had been to fail. The son of z they've been willing to fight. Right? Say divinization. And this Sahabi is a hobby that unfortunately most of the Muslims are oblivious of into and yet he is one of the actionable Bashara.

01:08:29--> 01:08:56

He is one of the eyeshadow Bashara and he is the son of zayday. But I'm having to fight and we just said zaytoven amaroo fail is a cousin of Omar. Right. So, the cousin of Omar his son is also a cousin of Roma. And that cousin has married our sister, Fatima. Okay, so Fatima has married side Eben Zaid ibn Abdullah bin newfane. And they're all from the bundle ID. Okay, so

01:08:57--> 01:09:37

he says to him, go take care of your own family, your sister Fatima, and your cousin and your brother in law, they have basically accepted the faith. So go take care of them rather than taking care of the profit. Obviously, the Sahabi wanted to save the process. And when he realized he knew that oma is not can actually kill his own sister, I need to protect the Profit System. So as we all know the story and this is the story directly from a business health, I'm quoting the story. So then, Omar became angry, and he turned the exact opposite direction to go to the house of his sister and his brother in law, while hubub Ivanovich was with them, teaching them the Quran with a Sahaba.

01:09:38--> 01:09:59

And when and teaching them Baja, so it's mentioned silica, and when they heard the footsteps of Omar hubub, went behind a curtain that they had or inside some of the house and Fatima took the sofa and put it under the bed, under the bed and when Omar

01:10:00--> 01:10:46

entered the house, he was hearing them reciting something different. So when he entered he said Maha the hill Haman, what is this mumbling that I was hearing? What is this recitation that I'm hearing? And Fatima said, You didn't see and hear anything you just heard, nothing was going on. And he kept on saying, well, I heard something. And somebody told me that you have embraced Islam. And he took hold of Satan's aid, and began to manhandle him began to be harsh with him. So Fatima stood up to get in between him and her husband. And this is one, Omar smacked his sister, Fatima. And when he did, so, that is when she became angry at him and said, Now more law, he applied Islam now, men

01:10:47--> 01:11:27

believe that he was a soldier. Yes, we have. This is why you're here, then yes, indeed, we have accepted Allah and His Messenger, and we have become Muslim, do as you please unto us. So when he saw the blood on his sister's face, because he had caused her to bleed, when he saw the blood on his sister's face, he became sorry for what he had done. And he calmed down. And he said, Let me see, what is this that you are reading? So his sister said, that I am worried to give this to you, what are you going to do with it? Because this is the most half. So he said, Don't worry, I swear by the gods. And he unfortunately shouldn't have done that. But he's a pagan, I swear by the gods, I will

01:11:27--> 01:12:12

return it to you as it is. This also shows us Rama could read and write because he's, he's one of the few that they can actually do this. So when he swore they gave him the cipher, and, of course, sorry, so when he swore they said, Well, you are not just you have to wash yourself. So Omar, took a whistle, and she then gave the sahifa. And in it, he reset, he read read Baja. And he continued reading this until he said, my eyes and a hadelich kalami. What a kurama. Who, how beautiful is this speech, and how noble and now this is in his heart, and another version and most of the others it is mentioned that sorry, not Muslim. And another version, it has mentioned that when he came across the

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

verse in any and Allahu La Ilaha Illa NFR boonie Welcome, Messiah to victory. So that's the verse or pseudo Baja. He said, The one who says this deserves that he alone be worshipped. Because it says in any and Allahu La ilaha illa Allah for boonie. So the Surah Taha says this. So Omar said, Whoever says this in such a beautiful manner, he deserves only he be worshipped. And so that is one he wanted to embrace Islam. And when he said that, I want to embrace Islam. That was when hubbub came from behind the curtain and said, You know, I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yesterday, make this drop. That Allahumma you that Islam can live in a sham, old beerenberg manikato

01:13:01--> 01:13:44

our law help Islam with either Abuja hell or Omar. And in this hadith is reported in Timothy, by the way, that the process that have said, Oh Allah, bless Islam or cause is to come to Islam with either Abu gehele or Omar, whichever one is more beloved to you. And Omar was the one who is more Beloved. And so he embraced Islam. And so and then the story goes on. And you all know it, that he went with the same brand, the short, he went with that to the house of Donald autocom. and knocked on the door and the Sahaba Sahaba, who opened the hood looked through the cracks, you saw Omar with the sword, and he came back terrified, and Hamza was there. And Hamza said, Let him in. If anything, we will

01:13:44--> 01:13:48

kill him with his own sword if he wants to harm because now has his own death on the side. So

01:13:50--> 01:14:11

Bob comes in, and he embraces Islam. And that was one of the Sahaba and the process of they said tech beer. And that was when they exited the doubt another word for the first time publicly, and they all went to the Kaaba to offer their cider. This is mentioned in his talk. Okay, they all went to the Kava.

01:14:13--> 01:14:14

Yeah, what did I say?

01:14:15--> 01:14:16

Oh,

01:14:17--> 01:14:36

the outcome, they all went from Donald outcome to the garba to offer sada and that was the first time that I was offered in public. So both of these stories are mentioned. And some have tried to reconcile between these two to say that Omar heard the process and recite one evening, and then very shortly after

01:14:37--> 01:14:50

Hala hwadam To be honest, I think is an either or scenario because each story is totally unique. And his for me is difficult to reconcile, because in each one, he begins angry and he ends as a convert.

01:14:51--> 01:14:59

So we don't know which of these two is the more authentic one. Both of them have their their their beautiful and profound messages.

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

The End what is important is that Bob indeed converted and inshallah we will continue the story of Bob inshallah Tada. Next week, it's already late inshallah and we'll take questions next time is shallow data center modic warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
