hamdulillah Isla niram

00:00:07--> 00:00:14

Al Hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah Camden County Daniella Bullock

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

urbanna Masada to

00:00:24--> 00:01:13

be in Moscow well, Karim de la salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah AlLahi wa sahbihi wa. Amma by the way now move on to the second to the last of our mothers we're doing the mothers of the believers and today we will be doing Sophia Binti, radi Allahu taala and her and Sophia been to her a, she is the only non out of mother that we have the only non Arab wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she is of course the daughter of the sacred or the leader of the main Jewish tribe of Medina, the Bernal Nadia. Now the balloon Iliad is one of the three tribes of Medina as we should all remember from the Sierra and the bonell deer. Was the tribe also the famous incident of cabin

00:01:13--> 00:01:55

Ashraf that was on the button no deal. So, Is she out of well, language wise yes but ethnically No. So as we had mentioned the your hood of high bar they are who the Medina they are aerobicized, your hood so they speak Arabic as a mother language. Their names have become Arab besides their culture is Arabic. But still their ethnicity is of course from the Bani Israel and they are living in that land for a few 100 years. So they are considered to be aerobicized and not actually out of and who do you remember they were the second of the three tribes of Medina and they were expelled the bundle final car the Buddha did and then of course the the master of the bundle paraiba at the end, this is

00:01:55--> 00:02:41

the balloon W and the bundle Nadia they were expelled because they attempted to assassinate the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and so the Prophet system surrounded them, and they were then given the condition to leave with only what their camels could carry. And the chieftain of the bonanova is the father of Sophia. Okay, so Sophia Binti, even octobe and haven Otto is the chieftain. So Raven Otto is the chieftain of the Bernal. Nadine, where did they go? They went to high bar, okay, so in the second and the third year of the hijra, who they were expelled, and they then go to high bar. So who did settle in high bar, Sophia is born in Medina, and she then moves to

00:02:41--> 00:03:27

high bar where she is raised as a young lady. So Sophia bent, you hurry up from the tribe of the Bernal, Nadia, what happened to her father, hurry, hurry up. He was not satisfied after having attempted to assassinate the Prophet. So some in Medina in high bar, he then begins to form alliances with the orange and he plays a pivotal role in the Battle of Honda. And if you remember, when we did our syrup, he actually returned to Medina from harbor and the Battle of conduct, and he is one of the main negotiators with the bokhara da and he acts as the emissary between the orange and the Burnham corridor. So he is definitely one of the leaders of Cofer, one of the leaders of

00:03:27--> 00:04:10

trying to eliminate Islam. And when hype 100 finishes who he is inside Medina, even though his family is in high bar, because he was the ambassador between the parish and between the bundle corridor, and he is now trapped inside Medina, thinking that he would be victorious over the Muslims right thinking that he would get all of the lands back. Now he is trapped inside. And so, when the order is given of the execution, one of the first to be laid out is created because he definitely deserves that. And we mentioned when we did the CLR, that the execution will because of treason it was because of what they had done. And his last words, if you remember them, really demonstrates his

00:04:10--> 00:04:49

character, he turns to the Profit System and said, well law he I do not regret having been your enemy. I don't regret having opposed you. But whomever Allah wants to humiliate will be humiliated, meaning Allah has desire to humiliate me or want to Billa whoever desires whoever Allah wants to humiliate, will be humiliated. And then he turned to his people that were still waiting to be executed. And he said to them, oh my people, this is the cover and the cover of a law that the bending is wrong, he will suffer calamity after calamity This is Alaska on us that we will be persecuted towards the end of times. And then he was executed with those who were executed in the

00:04:50--> 00:05:00

after the Battle of the trench. Of course, Sophia is still in play, but at this time, Sofia's mother she passes away we don't know how but before the coming of the

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

Islam or at least before her marriage to the prophet SAW Selim, and all we know is her name Barbara Binti, somehow you set which is Samuel L in Arabic, Barbara Binti, Somali, which is how they say Samuel, and all that we know is that she passes away before the marriage to the Prophet system. So she's basically without mother and father when the marriage takes place. And according to Islamic legend, her lineage goes back to how long or Aran. And so she is from the elite tribe of the ancient Israelites called the kohanim, which is the descendants of Aaron. How old was she? We don't know for sure. But what we do know is that when the Prophet system migrated to Medina, she was a young girl,

00:05:42--> 00:06:22

maybe around eight 910 years old. So this place is her at the time of the marriage, around 1718 years old at the time of the marriage of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. And of course, her story is well known, it is mentioned in every book of Sierra, she narrates it in the first person, because obviously, later on, she becomes our mother. So she says, When I was a young girl, I was my favorite child of my father, and even my uncle. And they would always play with me and pick me up when they're coming back from their, from their long journeys, and from the day trips that they had, and even from their work. And one day, after the Prophet system had migrated to Medina, my father

00:06:22--> 00:07:15

and my uncle went to see him. And they came back late at night. And I rushed towards them happy thinking that they would pick me up play with me. But they came walking with slow, heavy steps. And they ignored me even though I was, you know, wanting to be plated with whatnot. They completely ignored me because of their sadness and their miserable nature. And I heard my uncle say to my father, who is he the one who is he the one? And my father said, He will law he has he is the one. And my uncle said, Can you recognize him? Are you sure? And my father replied to my uncle. Yes, I recognize him. I know him to be the one who was predicted. And my uncle said, so what will be your

00:07:15--> 00:07:56

motif, your stance? What have you decided to do now? So the father is the elder the father is the chieftain, the uncle is now getting the advice, what do you want us to do as a tribe? And the father says, either what to who mob, I'm going to be his enemy as long as I live, and he was consistent with that until its execution. Now this is being narrated to us by the daughter herself is being narrated by Sophia herself hearing this firsthand that this is how my father felt towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Obviously, from the time of the expulsion, up until the marriage, we don't have much information. All that we know was that she was married to one of the

00:07:56--> 00:08:37

tribes of the hood and he divorced her. Then she was married to another man, Kiana Ventura, br cananda, Ventura beer, who mistreated her and was abusive towards her. We know this from a number of incidents, and of them is that before the attack of high bar, a few days before the attack, and they were expecting some type of attack, they were worried about some type of attack. But she didn't know that she didn't know anything about this, she saw a dream. And in the dream, the full moon appeared over the waters of labor. So she told her husband Kiana that she saw this dream, and she has no idea what it means. And so her husband smacked her and beat her and said, and the the beating was so

00:08:37--> 00:09:19

severe, it left a bruise on her head on her face that would last for many months. And her husband said to her, do you aspire to marry the king of the Arabs, and she had no idea what he's talking about. But the husband understood that the moon symbolizes the profitsystem. The rising over high bar symbolizes that he will conquer high bar. And the fact that she is seeing it symbolizes that she will be his wife. So the husband understood and smacked her and said, Do you aspire to be the wife of the king of the outcomes even though he's not the king, but just to make fun of him? And later on, of course, this prophecy was to come true. The Battle of hybrid Of course, I'm not going to go

00:09:19--> 00:09:24

into it. We did a lot of detail. What year did it take place in guys who can tell me what year is the Battle of hyper?

00:09:30--> 00:09:33

If you speak, it must be true or else.

00:09:35--> 00:09:36

The seventh year moharram.

00:09:37--> 00:10:00

Just one year off, you have only 11 years anyway. So when you're off, what's the big deal? 10% error anyway. The Battle of hybrid takes place in the seventh year of the hijra in the month of Muharram. I want to offer it in a lot of detail. It was a very fierce battle. One of the reasons why it was fierce was because should I even embarrass myself and all of you by quizzing you or don't even ask the quiz anymore because there

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

were many small fortresses and haber. Okay, it wasn't one simple land. Every sub tribe had built fortification. So it was one fortress after another, it wasn't an one back victory. And the largest, of course, was conquered by ideology along the famous incident where the process I'm going to hand, you know, the banner to the one who is going to please Allah and His messenger. In any case, it appears that every single surrender took place on different terms. Because at the end of the battle, of course, it was a massive amount of minima. One of the largest lynnium was up until that point in time, the largest minimum, of course, is going to be her name, but that's still two years away.

00:10:41--> 00:11:24

Three years away, right now, it is one of the largest if not the largest of any him up until that point in time, and the end result was what that they negotiated a surrender and they said let us stay here, we will pay you 50% of the produce as a tax if you let us to stay and the process of said I will let you stay, but we have the right to renegotiate every year. And of course, Omar later on renegotiated at that time, so 50% was done. And as a part of the honeymoon, some families were taken captive. And it appears as I said that this is a case by case basis that some families were captive, some families were not Sofia's tribe or sub tribe had been taken captive. Okay. So Sophia becomes

00:11:24--> 00:12:09

one of the part of the aneema and her husband dies in the battle against the Muslims. So now, she comes under the share of the famous Sahabi, the hare and Kelby or perhaps he asked for amilcare mean, well, in any way the hare is involved with her, but somebody goes to the process and says that the out of Sula law, that lady is the daughter of hoo ha, she is not just anybody, she is the daughter of EA, and she is not it is not appropriate that anyone has her other than you. This is the daughter of the CEO of the banana leaf. And we cannot just give them to her to any of the Sahaba. And so the Prophet system calls her and then says I give you two choices. Either you accept Islam,

00:12:09--> 00:12:26

and you stay with me, or you stay upon your faith. And perhaps Alo will find a way back to your people, you will go back to people somehow. So she has two options, Islam and stay with me, and she didn't understand what stay with me means here.

00:12:27--> 00:13:12

or stay upon your faith, remainder yahoodi and perhaps Allah will find a way back for you. And perhaps when said by the processor means you will find a way back. So he's basically saying, accept Islam and stay with me or remain upon your faith and you will go back to your people. It's a very win win situation. If you don't believe in Allah and His message you can go back. And if you believe in Allah is the messenger well, then I'm giving you a very good option. And Sophia response and this shows us how quickly Islam entered her heart well lies a very, very deep story. Unfortunately, we don't have not just time but even the actual anecdotes are so spirits we have to read in, we have to

00:13:12--> 00:13:49

understand that her tribe has been conquered and essentially eliminated. The bundle Nadia, the hybrid tribes were different than the bonadio. Her tribe has been conquered and eliminated. Her husband has been killed. Her immediate family no longer exists, most likely her brother as we're going to find it also has been killed. Her husband has been killed. And she is now a captive not knowing her fate was going to happen. And she is brought in front of the professor the law while he was setting them, perhaps less than five days after all of this has occurred when they go back and they're going to return this is when this is going to take place. So few days have gone by

00:13:49--> 00:14:08

everything is fresh in her mind. And the process gives her these two options. And she says, yeah Rasool Allah. Already she's a Muslim, Yara, Sula, LA, I desired to accept Islam and believe in you, even before you call me to Islam.

00:14:10--> 00:14:15

So I wanted to accept Islam, even before you offered Islam to me.

00:14:16--> 00:15:00

And I wanted to believe in you, even before I came to your camp, meaning even amongst her people, she was not happy, spiritually. And deep down inside, she was inclined towards Islam, even though she was not amongst the Muslims. And this is because as we all know, pure fedoras pure souls are attracted to the truth. Even if the truth is not around them, they want something she was not satisfied being with her people. Spiritually she was not satisfied. So she says to the profitsystem I wanted to be a Muslim even before

00:15:00--> 00:15:30

For I was amongst Muslims, that's what she's saying. And I wanted to believe in you even before seeing you, right. And I have no desire to remain upon the faith of my ancestors, the Jewish faith, nor do I have any family or brother or son or Father, I have no one immediate family left. Truly, she said, I love Allah and His Messenger more than I love my freedom, and more than returning to my people.

00:15:31--> 00:16:18

So she thinks that remaining a slave is what is being offered to her. That's what she thinks. So she says, I am happier, being a Muslim slave, rather than returning back to my people. That's what she is saying. So we see here, that a man that is truly coming from the heart, strong Eman immediately. And we see in history, such examples of them as the magician's of finance time, from where to where instantaneously, that strong demand comes. And this is Allah blessings that he gives to those whom he chooses. So Sophia, are the Allahu anhu. Her eemaan was demonstrated from the very beginning, and is going to be continuing throughout her short time with the Prophet sallallahu it he was selling

00:16:18--> 00:17:02

them. And this really shows the purity of her heart that she wanted Islam. And she thought that what the process was saying is that remain a slave. But that's not what he was saying. He was essentially saying that become a wife. And so the process is, and when she when he saw this sincerity in her, and he knew she was sincere, he immediately freed her. And the freedom was her mother and the proposition. And this is something that then became well known in Islamic film, that the milkier mean can be freed and the freeing of the Milky Ameen can be the mother for her marriage. Right. So this is something not well known in Islamic field, the first person was Sophia rhodiola, one that

00:17:02--> 00:17:43

she was a milky amine. And her freedom became her mother. And that's when the the watch takes place. Because when you're military, I mean, then there is no one or two witnesses or the Two Witnesses are the people there meaning even that you need two witnesses. But the Two Witnesses in that case were the people around the Prophet So Simon there is no welly when it comes to milk, I mean, the milk me does not have the woody whatnot. So the the watch takes place in moharram of the seventh year, and the manhood was the freedom that was given to Sophia, and they finished up at high bar, whatever they needed to be doing, or the the army and whatnot. And of course, the conjugation cannot take

00:17:43--> 00:18:30

place. After the medication has been taken, until one cycle takes place. One Halo takes place just so that there is no confusion of paternity. And it just so happened that her cycle finished on the way back to Medina. Okay, so she must have told the women of this. And so when this occurred, so the profitsystem asked to spend the night with her. But she refused that night, she said not this night, and this happened at a place called to a bar, which was six meters or six miles from haber. Then on the next night, they reached a place called a soy bar, which was an entire day's journey away. And that was when Sophia agreed, and some of the unsold ladies prepared her for the wedding night and

00:18:30--> 00:19:08

perfumed her and gave her special clothing we have on Messina alongside the one of the people who prepared her she narrates, in the first person some details and this was recorded in the double qualitative inside this very interesting that she says that she feels flustered that we didn't have any of the special decorations. We didn't have the preparatory tents. So obviously, in every culture when you get married, in every culture, you have certain things that you do, but nobody was expecting a marriage, and so on Messina, and she's now been entrusted with Sofia, and she's obviously lamenting, we didn't have anything, we didn't have all the decorations. We didn't have

00:19:08--> 00:19:48

anything that was supposed to have. So what I did was I took some sheets, and we made a special room out of them, you know, and between the branches, and we perfumed her with whatever we had we combed her and we gave her whatever the clothing that they had amongst all the ladies, they found whatever they could, and all Messina narrates that Sophia was a young and beautiful lady. And she would take the beautification with the ease of the best of ladies meaning that you know some ladies when you put on beautification, it makes them look even naturally much better. And that's what Sophia was that about the Allahu Allah She was beautiful. She was blessed with a natural beauty that

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

complemented whatever was given on top of that, and all Messina and says that I never smelled any fragrance better than the fragrance of that night meaning whatever we could do. Allah blessed

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

To make even more fragrant than it was right, whatever fragrances we had, Allah blessed it and I smelled something that I never smelled before. before we knew it, the prophet system had arrived, we had already instructed Sophia that when he entered the room to stand up to greet him, which he did, and we then left them together. The next morning oma, CNN says, we took Sophia to help her do her lesson. And we asked her, how did she find the profits of the law while he was selling them? And she replied, the Profit System was very happy with me. And we spent the night awake. And he kept on talking to me. And she herself narrates and other ahaadeeth some snippets of that narration of that

00:20:38--> 00:21:21

conversation, she says, For example, one of the questions that the process of asked me was that why I said no, the previous night, why did I delay to this night? And she said, I replied, we were still close to hyper. And I was worried that they might launch a counter attack, we were just outside of high bar. And I was worried that you know, you had agreed to a settlement, what if they betrayed the settlement? What if they attack back, I wanted to put some distance between the army and us between the high bar and us. And so I delayed to the second day. And so when the process of heard this, he was greatly impressed at her intelligence and foresight, and the fact that her concern is now for

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

whom, for the Muslim army, that her concern immediately changes for the Muslim side. And this shows against the the strength of her faith, and of the conversations that they had, that she says, the process of asked me about the bruises around my I had a black eye, the bruises, what was that? And so I explained to him what had happened, meaning the dream and the husband, whatnot. And so of course, this is now coming. True. And she herself says that, I still had something in my heart, yes, good Muslim, what not something in my heart regarding my father.

00:21:56--> 00:22:42

After all, the father's the Father, and the Father was executed by the command, obviously, of the process. And so I still had something in my heart, and the profitsystem kept on explaining to me why I tell you to eat a year, and making excuses to me for what he had to do. And he told me that my father did this and that and he explained, because now here's the point, obviously, and this is well known in human history, even the most brutal of dictators are good to their families. Okay, even bad people, they actually have a good side in their private lives, right? And this is well known. I can mention to you a gazillion episodes, I mean, Ganges Han, read his biography. He was actually a very

00:22:42--> 00:23:22

loving husband and father, right. And outside of the household. He is his name is infamous, right? Hitler, I mean, all of these people, amongst their entourage, they're closed. There's always that side. That happens, right? So understandably, Sophia is seeing which side of her father, she's seeing the daughter side, understandably, right? So she's feeling something. And the Prophet system is explaining on the outside what is happening that you don't know. Right? So he continued to make excuses. And he acted to delay and he give justification until everything that was in my heart disappeared. Right? So let's have hello we really see here, the gentleness the process of

00:23:22--> 00:23:38

understands that how will Sophia be feeling? And so he is the one initiating knowing what is going to be happening until finally, you know, all of those feelings go away in her heart. Now, one of the somewhat funny incidents that mentioned this again, when we did the Battle of high bar

00:23:40--> 00:24:11

that takes place here, the profitsystem understood Sophia to be sincere, he knew her to be sincere. He is, of course Rasulullah solecism, not everybody was so good natured. And a number of Sahaba felt that this was an act. I mean, how could this lady go from being a yahoodi? To so enthusiastic in one day, right. And of the people who really felt something is wrong is a you balance it?

00:24:12--> 00:24:37

And so you volunteered to take his sword and stand at a distance from the tent that night, and he continued to pace the tent, not going to sleep the whole night. And when the profitsystem came out, the next morning, he saw a Were you with the sword standing in the distance, and boy, you've said Allahu Akbar hamdulillah.

00:24:38--> 00:24:59

And the President said, What? What type of wood and boy you've said the iris will allow this young lady, her father and her brother and her tribe, and I didn't feel safe with her and you. I just stood at a distance if anything happened, you could have called and I would have listened. SubhanAllah Yeah, and this is now volunteering, you know, so

00:25:00--> 00:25:43

The profitsystem laughed at this end. And he made to offer you for his enthusiasm. But he knew that he's the process, we knew this is not something that is needed. And the same day that what took place and this shows us that the walima can take place before or after the conservation, because for zeyneb, we said a few weeks ago, it took place before the conservation. And now for Sophia it is taking place after the conservation. So on the same day, the edema took place. And the professor said, No, they don't have any extra animals, they don't have any, you know, luxury to have anything you know, the like for Zuma, Zane up there was meat and bread, which is the most luxurious walima

00:25:43--> 00:26:20

for Sophia, they don't have anything because they are traveling and they're going to next day arrive in Medina, or a few days, they're gonna arrive in Medina. And so the Prophet system commanded that a sheet to be placed. And he said, whatever you have, just bring it. So some person bought two, three days, some person bought dried biscuits, some verses, but as it's called this and that haces basically flour with ghee and butter and whatnot, just whatever they had, and small amount was there, and the people ate whatever was there. And it was Baraka for them. But there was no meat and there was no bread. It was just whatever was the remnants of the food after that. And that was the

00:26:20--> 00:27:03

walima of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And Sophia, and the people were questioning on that night that is Sophia amilcare main or is she a mother of the believers? Which one is she Medicare mean? Or is she a wife of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So they said that if she comes out covered, then she is a wife, the only the extra hijab as you know, and if she comes out not then she is will come in. And the next morning, she came out fully covered. And the profit system called for his camel, there's no spec, there's no extra camel because again, nobody's expecting a marriage to take place. There's no spare camel to give. So she's gonna ride and share the Campbell of the Profit

00:27:03--> 00:27:15

System. So he asked that his Campbell be brought out. And then one of the most you know, amazing things that is usually mentioned when we talk about the the

00:27:17--> 00:27:41

the the the way, the process of treating his wives the romance and the son These are some of the instances are mentioned there that he asked the camel to be lowered. And obviously Sophia is fully covered and she's not used to being in you know, a bio whatever it is and she's awkward and whatnot. And the Campbell is obviously even a seated Campbell, by the way is like this. Hi, as you all know from your back home 10 rupees rise that you lose all the way up there. Right. So

00:27:42--> 00:27:48

on the coast of Goshen and Barbara wherever you go, Oh, no, no, it's not a question. Sorry. What is it the coast of the Clifton. Sorry, Clifton. Right. So

00:27:49--> 00:27:59

the Campbell is still relatively high. So how does Sophia gonna get up? This is one of those interesting anecdotes, right. What did the process of do, he lowered himself down.

00:28:01--> 00:28:09

He lowered himself down. And he got on his knees. And he put one knee outward.

00:28:10--> 00:28:44

So one knee and one foot out and one knee down. Right, so the right knee is out. And the left knee is down, to offer his own thigh as a stepping stool for Sophia, right. And Sophia became embarrassed, obviously, into the Profit System and giving the Thai to him to her. She became embarrassed and she didn't do anything. So the Prophet system held on to one of her feet and bent the knee so that her knee would be on his thigh,

00:28:45--> 00:29:34

like nudging her, come on forward. And so then Sophia came on top of the camel, and then the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, rode the camel, and that was there returned to Medina. And an incident is narrated that against a parallel all of this and one of the reasons that it's so beautiful to read the Sierra is you really get a glimpse of the human lives. And you really see the people as they were not between the two extremes of the exaggerated unreality or also the dismissal by the modernist and progressives you find the real middle balance. And there's an incident that again, there's not much benefit per se but it's just a human episode that really demonstrates the humanity

00:29:34--> 00:29:59

of everybody, including our Prophet system and Sophia and including the Sahaba it is mentioned that and again we have still maybe two three days March back right and the camels are already tired and the camel is not expecting or not accustomed to to people now it's not supposed to be done because it wasn't meant for be the multiple writes. So what happens on the way back? Allah knows exactly when the bookstore mentioned when but outside of Medina, the camel

00:30:00--> 00:30:14

falters and trips. This is the camel of the Profit System in Sofia. And so when it falters and trips, obviously, Sophia and the process of them fall forward. Now,

00:30:15--> 00:30:17

who is going to help

00:30:18--> 00:31:08

the mother of the nobody, nobody is allowed to do anything. And so the Sahaba the books mentioned, they simply turn away and give privacy. Nobody even looked, because had had been only the profitsystem, they would have jumped. But now it is the process of man, his wife, so they didn't even look and every one of them averted their gaze away and allowed the profitsystem to dust Sophia put her back on the camel and get back on the journey. Right? small incident. And for me, it just shows a volume of humanity. It just like your mind boggles at this minor incident that shows us and if Allah had wanted, this wouldn't have happened. Right? I mean, if Allah had wanted, the Campbell

00:31:08--> 00:31:49

would have had wings and they fly to Medina. Correct. But Allah is also wanting to show us that yes, he is human. And his camel is a regular camel, right? And Sophia is a everything is being demonstrated in a way that me personally, the love and admiration goes up even more. Right now I know, some understandings of Islam, they won't even believe this is there. But this is in the books. And it is mentioned in tabaka, which is one of the earliest books of Sierra and it actually, for me, it demonstrates again, the humanity of everyone involved the respect that the Sahaba had, in spite of them, seeing him to be fully human, but still that love and respect and admiration that they had.

00:31:49--> 00:32:30

And as well, I mean, all of these details, by the way, again, I mean, I have to mention this you all of these explicit details of the wedding night and whatnot. By the way, why is it not mentioned for other wives most likely, because in this case, the wedding and the wedding night takes place on the road between highborn and Medina. Right. And so it's a very public thing happening. And so we have a little bit more details than usual. On their return to Medina. Sophia doesn't have a house and the houses in front of the masjid are all booked now. Right? So they have to construct a house for her a few blocks away, unlike I should have said that they are in the row. But Sofia's house is not in

00:32:30--> 00:33:01

that row, along with some of the otherwise we're going to talk about that. inshallah. We'll talk about that later on in Sharla. But Sofia's house has to be constructed. So where is she going to live? So she goes to the house of one of the unsought His name is Ebony Norman. And how do feminine Nora man we can assume that he must have had a larger house than usual in his spare room. Otherwise, why choose this house, so she stays there for a few days when the house is being constructed. And in these few days, who is going to come visit Sofia told me

00:33:02--> 00:33:39

the other wives, they are the most eager to come and see Sophia. And he says I could barely contain my frustration and excitement when I wrapped an app that I have to wrap myself up and I rushed in to go and see, you know, Sophia into hurry. And the Prophet says I'm out of money. He recognized me despite my disguise. Okay. Now, some of the brothers here probably will never understand this. But I can assure you having lived in a land of niqab, you can recognize you and your copy wife in a sea of cops.

00:33:40--> 00:34:16

No problem. This is something even I wouldn't have understood unless I live there. But you can recognize through 1,000,001 things from the eyes from everything you can recognize your wife. Otherwise, if you have never lived in a niqab land, you go and you see three of clubs. You wouldn't even know your wife, right. But once you live there for years and years, so I thought the process would not recognize her. And the processor recognized her coming into the room seeing Sophia going back. So he then when he met up with her, he said What did you think of her? What did you think of your visit? She didn't know that he recognized. What do you think of your visit? And so obviously

00:34:16--> 00:34:56

she wants to trivialize right. So she snorted she goes I just saw you who do like you just saw an average just one of them because they must have looked different. Right? And it's an ethnically different group as we said, right. So she's not from the Arab tribe will explain this, so must have had a different look. So she's trying to make any trivial of it. And the Prophet system defended Sophia and said that Oh, don't say that or Arusha for she has accepted Islam, and she has has Sunni Islam she has now has strong Islam. She has accepted Islam and she's a good Muslim. Don't mention her past the idea of udia and SubhanAllah. From my reading as much as I could find. This is the only

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

time I shall use this slip

00:35:00--> 00:35:38

The other wives continued to use it later on. But from my reading, this was the one and only time the first day that she saw, she said, and after that she never once mentioned this phrase again, because, as we will mention that she did have to battle and one of the things I want you to think about that most people don't really think about the difficulties of being a convert in a strange society, the difficulties of being the only one of your race of your culture to accept Islam, and you don't have any support system, you don't have family.

00:35:39--> 00:35:58

You don't have your culture even right, because Sophia, okay, she spoke Arabic. But frankly, her Arabic would have even been slightly different than the Arabic of the outcomes, because she has just called Judah sized Arabic is a slightly different Arab Arabic, ethnically, she's different. Her culture is different. She has no family in Medina.

00:35:59--> 00:36:43

And the strangeness she would have felt and on top of that, her strangeness is being reminded rubbed into her by those who are jealous over multiple times, the man that she must have had to overcome that. And the purity of our soul is something that is truly admirable. And we also especially need to think of this in our times as well with our conduits of this land when they convert that Subhana Allah the battles that they are facing in every single aspect, and we have to give them whatever help that we can. And Sophia felt every time her yehudah passed was brought up, she really felt it. She felt multiple times and I mentioned already some episodes, when I talked with the other wives

00:36:43--> 00:37:01

Yanni, a number of other of our mothers in May Allah forgive them, and Allah has forgiven them. Jani, oma Salama and hafsa and Xena, we've already mentioned Asia, they're all once in a while bringing it up, right. It is mentioned that the process of once you visited Sofia and she was crying, sobbing, what happened hafsa Put me down

00:37:02--> 00:37:10

and said You are nothing but to you who do. You are nothing but to you who do what to anyway, we're not worried about you. And she's already alone in the city.

00:37:12--> 00:37:53

And now it's really hurting her that she's not getting that support. And so she's now crying on her own house. And so the profitsystem himself cheers her up and says what do they have against you? What privilege that they have against you, for you are the daughter of a prophet. And your uncle is a prophet. And you are married to a prophet, meaning Moosa and Harun and myself, okay? Because how long is one of her aunts is her ancestor, she's from the tribe of who said, the, the, the tribe of the B'nai Israel letters from her own. And her uncle is a prophet, meaning Musa, and you are married to a prophet who can claim that amongst them, and so he himself cheers up Sophia, and, you know,

00:37:53--> 00:38:31

calms her down. And he then goes to have saw and rebukes her that do not say this house anymore. And Ole Miss Ella, as well. And I already mentioned the issue of Xena, and we'll mention it again, because we're going to mention the incident of the hedge all of this, it really did hurt her, but she continued to struggle to the end overcome it. And her reward is with Allah subhanho wa Taala. One of the interesting tidbits that we also learn is that out of all of the wives, it appears that she was the one that cooked the best and the most exotic foods. And that is fully understandable. Because it's not her culture. She's coming from a different culture. So her culture is a slightly

00:38:31--> 00:38:54

different one. And of the things that that we can derive this from Ayesha herself says that I never saw anyone cook as much as Sophia. And one day she sent a dish to my house when the Prophet system was there with his guests. And I became so angry that I took the dish and smashed it down.

00:38:55--> 00:39:32

Meaning I'm insulted. This is my house. Don't try to show your favors and that's what she's feeling now. Right? That it's my day today. Even though it's hella nothing wrong. She's not coming herself. She's sending a gift. Like she cooked fresh food. Fresh Food doesn't last four or five days, there's no fridge, fresh food is there, go send it to the profitsystem she knows there's some guests sitting there. So I mean, you know, she's pure intention. But Arusha. She gets so frustrated she lifts the dish, and she smashes it down. And the Sahaba are all quiet now. And imagine Subhanallah and this is a very again, any one of us would would we have done?

00:39:33--> 00:39:39

What would we have done? You have embarrassed me, huh? What is the phrase not kataya right.

00:39:40--> 00:39:43

is needed right? You've made me feel whatever.

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

But our profits are seldom picked up the dish himself and cleansed the food and put it on another plate and said to Arusha, bring another plate to give back the plate that you broke. We're going to bring another plate back

00:40:00--> 00:40:31

Then said to the Sahaba, your mother has become jealous don't ignore it a lot of omachron. Don't worry, he didn't rebuke her. He didn't feel embarrassed himself. And he didn't get involved. As we said many times these issues, he kept himself aloof from them. And ego. This is something that he didn't get involved with. But he did insist on another dish of equal size and whatnot being sent back because that was the fault of our issue. So this also shows us fifth key thing here, if somebody lends you something, and then you break it.

00:40:32--> 00:40:37

Hmm, what's the saying you break it you What is it? No, is it? No, no, it was something else, huh?

00:40:38--> 00:41:15

Something like this. Yeah. Okay. So if you break it, then you're gonna have to, you know, pay for it. So whatever it is that this is a 50 ruling, by the way, it's a 50 ruling. And this is one of the incidents we derive it from, that if you take something from somebody and your fault, something happens to it, well, then it's your responsibility, because it's something that you have taken upon yourself to do. In any case, the point is that this shows us that Sophia is a cook, and she's cooking, and she's gifting to the prophets of the law while he was selling, and of the incidents that are narrated about Sophia as well, is that one she was traveling with the prophets of the law,

00:41:15--> 00:41:17

it was setting them and

00:41:18--> 00:41:59

she was on one of the Campbells and the prophets of Salaam had his servant and jeshua. with him. And this is the famous phrase that the President said that, and Joshua was in a hurry, and he was telling the camels to be hasty. And so the camels were moving quickly to go. And the profitsystem felt that Sophia might be irritated by the the quick movement of the camel. And so he said to Angelica, that famous phrase that has become an expression in Arabic Now, yeah, and Joshua riff on will argue that Oh, Angelica, be gentle with the fragile vessels with the crystals that are on your, you know, your payload here. Be careful with that. So the point is that the profitsystem felt that

00:41:59--> 00:42:33

Sophia might be finding it awkward, the camel moving so fast, and he's also reminding Angelica that you should treat the women with the dignity and the gentleness that they that they deserve. I already mentioned the story of Sofia and hedge camel as well. For some reason a lot of her stories involve camels, I don't know why. But a lot of them involve camels, and it's just maybe just complete. Obviously, a lot of a lot of coincidence here. But we already mentioned the story in some detail. And because it involves Sophia, I'll quickly repeated that. On the way to hedge they only did one hedge in the lecture on the process. And as we all know, the one has that they did on the

00:42:33--> 00:43:17

way to hedge although the wives have one camel, obviously. And Sofia's camel. When they stopped for a stopping Sofia's camel just breaks free and runs away. Right? I already mentioned this incident last time. So Sofia loses her camel. And she begins to cry and essentially sobbed hysterically. And all the Sahaba can hear because now, I mean, obviously it's anything and any one of us. It's a very, and this is on the way too. So imagine that all everything has to happen, right? So it's just a big disaster. And she's crying and crying and crying. So the profit system gets off his camel, and he consoles her and with his own blessing hands he wipes the tears from her cheeks. Right. So clearly

00:43:17--> 00:44:02

there is definitely very much compassion and love between them. He consoles her he consoles her she does not become consoled. And so he becomes somewhat forceful and says Okay, enough. Now, we will deal with this enough now. And this phrase frightened, Sophia, she stopped crying, right? She stopped crying. And the processor said we will camp here tonight. They weren't expected to camp they had to move on. But because of Sofia the whole there was an army as her judge the whole caravan is going to spend the night there. And now she was so worried did I insult that or not insulted, I make the process of irritating what not? And it was supposed to be her night anyway. So she goes to Asia.

00:44:02--> 00:44:40

And she says oh, I show you know that I would never give you my night. But tonight, I will give you my night with one condition. You make sure that the profitsystem knows that I gifted and he doesn't have anything as hard against me. If he does, then you make sure that he will forgive me. She was so worried even though there was nothing but she became so worried that maybe, you know because of me the whole army has started the whole caravan has stopped because of me. And so I should only allow one her obviously she was going to take that gift of the narration goes that when she came the process of Adagio How can you be here it's not your date there your night and she says daddy can

00:44:40--> 00:44:59

follow the law here at human Yeshua Okay, this is Allah blessings he gives to whomever he pleases and she explains what happens. And of course, at this time as well you know the the incident with Xena also takes place when the camel sharing you know that that incident we mentioned as well. And again, you can now

00:45:00--> 00:45:28

Till the end of her life, she has to always deal with this and Subhanallah we really have to as I said, and he cut our Converse a lot of slack that they have a lot of issues that they have to face that indeed, we have our own issues battling Islamophobia from without, but they have multiple issues. It's normal for me from without and internal racism from within and others, you know, things from within, we have to always be extra, you know, cognizant of that. And after the hedge was over,

00:45:29--> 00:45:38

and they were about to come back. The Profit System was informed that Sofia's period had begun, and she hadn't done so awful weather.

00:45:40--> 00:45:41

Okay, so

00:45:42--> 00:46:17

the Chateau de la Juana, she had missed the throw off the Waffen side of the podium because of her menses. Right. And Sophia is missing the offer to a DA and this is of the wisdoms of our mother's being so many a number we can get different 50 rulings from different things. And this is one of the most important fealty rulings we get from hedge, can we get it because of Sophia, and that she was in her monthly cycle and that time, so when so that the the camp is being packed, everybody's eager to go back to Medina, and the news reaches the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that Sophia

00:46:19--> 00:46:32

hers has just started and she hasn't done the right that everybody else did that day, which is so often without so he uttered a phrase which is not translated in Arabic. These are simply phrases of irritation, aka Hamsa.

00:46:33--> 00:46:43

Which basically, are CRO helper, excuse me, aka helper, which basically, is phrases that the best way to translate is it is just

00:46:44--> 00:47:24

frustration is the best way you don't translate it literally frustration like oh my God, is this happening really. So there's first everybody's frustrated. And he said, I have a sir tonight he is she gonna hold us back from going back to Medina. And because she's not any regular lady, she is the wife of the processor. And if she remains, he remains and if he remains, everybody remains right. So he said, Will she hold all of us back? Then he asked her he called her he said, Did you perform the tawaf on the day of sacrifice? which we call it in our fifth? We'll call it what type of off is that one? You guys have forgotten hedge completely. Huh?

00:47:27--> 00:47:31

You guys, the offer the father Mashallah. Very good. Okay, so the one who's done five hedges? How many have you done?

00:47:33--> 00:47:35

inshallah, you'll do five projects in shaba.

00:47:36--> 00:48:24

The main tool off of hedges law for the father, as we call to offer the Father. And that is done after the sacrifice or the day of sacrifice, basically. Right? So he asked her did you do tawaf the day of sacrifice? She said, Yes. He said, in that case, pack your bags We're leaving. And from this, we get the very important fifth principle that our sisters need to know when they go for Hajj, that photo off of the word Ah, the good bite off. It is not obligatory upon the one in her menses, she can drop it without even a penalty. And if a man drops it, then he has to give a penalty. Right? A woman in her menses, if she has done the follow then there's no penalty whatsoever and she can

00:48:24--> 00:48:39

return without even giving a dump. It is forgiven and we know this from the incident of Sophia that Sophia did the Father. This also shows us not going to the club head here but if she hadn't done the father, then what? They would have stayed

00:48:41--> 00:49:23

Okay, so the father is the record we have done this but anyway, that's not let's not get into the pickup hygiene. I have three lectures about the fifth of Heidrick and go over them. So, point is that Sofia's case shows us this as well also one of the famous incidents regarding Sophia de la Juana, which is mentioned inside Bahati as well that during it calf, Sophia are the last one her visited the Prophet system in the masjid. And this shows us many things First and foremost, no doubt the love. Secondly, a loneliness. She doesn't have relatives and friends in Medina. And the process is her only source of companionship. And so in the days of erotica, when he's not visiting in the

00:49:23--> 00:50:00

daytime, because he's not visiting the day. She wants to go and talk with him. Thirdly, it also shows us it is allowed for conversations to take place in actigraph. Some people go to ultra extremes in it decaf and they think that they cannot have a regular conversation. What is not allowed is romantic and stuff. Yes, but a regular conversation. Even with one spouse, it is allowed. And so Sofia is going to the masjid and she visited the processor after Isha and they stayed talking for a long time until it was late at night. And the Prophet system did not want so

00:50:00--> 00:50:42

Fear to walk alone at night. Now, I want you to understand this is Medina in the time of the Prophet system, and still he was this protective, right? There's nothing wrong with being protective of your wife and your daughters. It is a part of one's fitrah. To do so, it is something that is natural. And it is something that is there in the city of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it is his own wife. And he doesn't want her to walk alone. What does that show? Right? So he leaves the masjid to walk her because he's in a teacup he's not going to enter the house. Right? He walks through the door is going to come back right? So and remember her house was not attached to the machine. Remember that?

00:50:42--> 00:51:20

Right? I mentioned this right. So her house was not in the immediate Had it been immediate then there wouldn't have been a problem. Issues house houses house almost no, you just walk right from the messenger to the house. But Sofia's house, you have to walk to three blocks is on. If you're facing the Tabler, the house would be on the left hand side, outside the masjid of the modern machine outside, literally outside the left hand the machine, basically on the buckler site right between the back there and the rest of the process. That's where her house would be. So he leaves the machine and he's walking to the house of Sofia, pitch dark is the dark night and two unsolved

00:51:20--> 00:51:50

young men are walking and they're talking amongst themselves. And then they recognize the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And with him is of course, a lady in complete any book and whatnot. And so the both of them lower their gaze completely shut up and rush forward, out of higher out of higher and the Profit System says ileitis likoma. Slow down. For She is my wife, Sophia, in theory.

00:51:51--> 00:52:34

The two young lads are so embarrassed, flustered and blushing. They could only say Yana Sula, la like did you expect us to think anything else? Yasser Allah, and the Prophet system said, Indeed, shaytaan runs in a person like his own blood does. And I wanted to eliminate any doubt in your minds. So hello, where does one begin with this narration? It's so deep and profound, right? And the higher is obviously beautiful, the higher of the young men, right that they see the processing with his wife as they lower their head and just rush through as you expect them to do. It's exactly what you'd expect them to do. And the profitsystem tells them She is my wife, Sophia, I want you to know,

00:52:34--> 00:52:40

this isn't our with Bella, we don't even and the young men don't even know what to say. They can't even verbalize.

00:52:41--> 00:53:21

They can't even say they say the auto pseudo law dot dot dot look at how much this you know, sensitive situation is like, yeah, those are the law. Yeah. And he did you expect us to think anything else. And the processing is not your fault. But he's setting the precedent, right? He's demonstrating that we have to have the upper hand you and to realize that, you know, rumors spread people talk, you know, gupshup happens. This is the reality of human nature, right? gossip, gossip, gossip, people love to gossip, they make something that is nothing and they make a hole. And we've seen this in the slander of Arusha, right, the most innocent incident ever, and what happened

00:53:21--> 00:53:55

happened, right, so where there's the disease in the heart, what's going to happen, you're gonna have the things you know, happening. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, says that I just wanted to remove this from your heart. And it also shows us as well, that the, the the concept of shaytaan, running through the blood of the son of Adam, what this means is that shaytan is always eager at any opportunity, and also will take it as it is literally and say that, somehow shaitaan is able to basically enter our bodies and put these thoughts into our minds. And this also shows us that we should be

00:53:57--> 00:54:42

cognizant of what misinformation people might have of us. And always be on the upper hand if you like and be generous, don't think evil of people, but also be precautious, about what people might think of you. Right? The process of did not accuse the two men of anything, but he made sure they couldn't have any negative thoughts, and of the incidents mentioned about Sophia as well is that her love for the process and was well known. And in the famous incident in the last days of his life, when all of the wives came at one occasion, three days, four days before he passed away. And he was coming in and out of consciousness and they could see the pain, they could see the sweat, they could

00:54:42--> 00:54:55

see the fever, and Sophia was there with the other wives and she began to cry. And she said Yasuda law, how I wish that your pain would leave you and come to me

00:54:56--> 00:54:59

how I wish I could have everything that you have and you have

00:55:00--> 00:55:07

Nothing, right just came out from her fitrah. It came out purely and sincerely, but

00:55:08--> 00:55:27

the wives or wives in the end of the day, even if they are our mothers, and even if they are the best of believers, and this shows us over and over again, there are no angels amongst the bunny, Adam, there are no angels. These are our mothers, there are the best of the creation, yet, they have mentioned her ethnicity multiple times.

00:55:28--> 00:55:33

And this is how to love sometimes you have very good people, they get angry, and a slur comes out.

00:55:35--> 00:56:12

Sometimes you have very good people, and in their emotional state, when they get angry at you, they'll say something about you that is just downright rude and crude, and obnoxious and bad. And there's still good people and other aspects. And they make a mistake in this aspect. Correct? Do we not have the incident of abuser RFID and beloved, right and without, without and Bella is Beloved, yet when Abu Dhabi gets angry, what comes out comes out. And you remember what I don't need to mention it here you remember that incident, right? So it happens sometimes. And this is not a defense, but it is the reality. And therefore as well, we also by the way, unfortunately, we have a

00:56:12--> 00:56:37

culture now of going to two extremes here the one is to justify. And the other is to take that slip up and call us the entire career. And the entire legacy is completely gone. Because of one statement of anger. These are both extremes. a one off mistake is not the same as a consistent habit. Right? And we have here once in a while minor things happened. And Allah has forgiven them. So

00:56:38--> 00:56:44

at the end of the process of his life, and Sophia says this, and some of the other

00:56:45--> 00:57:29

of our mothers, they don't like this. And they pinpoint they show signs, sarcasm, innuendo as the case like Yeah, she thinks she's like, you know what not. And the process is in and out of consciousness. When he comes back to consciousness, because he had There's a famous Hadith, my eyes might sleep, but my heart never sleeps. Right? There are certain speciality to the process that I'm even if he's unconscious, still there is a consciousness that is separate than the bodily consciousness, right? So when he comes back to consciousness, he points to those of the women who might have said something or made a sarcastic gesture or the, you know, the eyebrow raised, how has

00:57:29--> 00:58:11

that illuminate that type of stuff that we know from the Koran, and he points to them, he goes, go and do the will do and one version Go and wash your mouths out? They said, Why are those little law? He said, because you have done any lumas or homos or you have done the the sarcasm towards her, and voila, he in her losada she is truthful. And what she has said she would willingly take all of my pain and take it on her if it will go away from me She is truthful in what she said. And this is an amazing testimony to Sofia. And it is one of the last praises that the process of gave to any of his wives and it was to Sofia, and this shall forever be one of her legacies that the Prophet system

00:58:11--> 00:58:53

praised her. Amongst the very last praises, if not the last praise that he ever did to any wife. It was to Sophia rhodiola whiner after the death of the Prophet sallallahu How do you send them she lived like the other wives of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And she did go on hedges we said the majority of wise went on hydron or offered them to go for Hajj. And her house as I said was not in the immediate vicinity. It just so happened that it was the house that was next to the house with mine had been a fun. Okay, so it was a very strategic location. Now one incident happened the time of Omar rhodiola one that shows us again her good nature and her forgiving nature that she had a god

00:58:53--> 00:59:12

a slave girl who whatever reason had a grudge against her. And so this slave invented ally against her. And she complained to her model the law one that Sophia still observes the Sabbath, the Sabbath. And she still has ties with the hoot.

00:59:13--> 00:59:55

So Hannah, how painful is this? That after all these years, and still that slurs coming up? Right? How painful is that? Right? And so Omar sends a messenger to her. Or maybe he goes himself, we don't really know for sure. And because he's allowed to go behind the curtain and asks, What is this I'm hearing? And she says, As for the Sabbath, I have never had any need of it. Since Allah has substituted Friday. For me. This is a complete lie. And as for the connection with the hood, I still have family that are your who then yes, they come visit. Yes, they do. What's wrong with that? So Omar confirms her email and whatnot and let's

00:59:56--> 00:59:59

let her be and she calls the the slave and ask why do you

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

You do this, and she gives excuses and she blames shavon and whatnot. And instead of rebuking instead of getting angry, instead of punishing, which has every right to do, she frees her for the sake of Allah to expect to reward on judgment day. So her slave did learn. And in response, she gets freed. This is again coming from the nature of Sophie rhodiola, why not. And one of the last things that is narrated about which is actually very, very interesting. And that is the incidents that took place in the last days of the life of earth model, the last one, because of the location of Sofia's house, she felt a more obligation, if you like than the other wives, because technically, they

01:00:42--> 01:01:15

otherwise understood they have to stay at home, really, they couldn't really do anything. But her house and earth man's house were next to one another next to literally next to one another. And when the people surrounded the house of Earth, man, she can hear and see everything taking place. And it gets from bad to worse, as we all know. And a point in time came where they cut off the food supplies, remember the story of earth model the lawn. And so she decided from her own he had, that her presence might help defuse the situation.

01:01:16--> 01:01:59

Unbelievably, she then dawned the Baraka, the buyer, and she asked for a meal to come. And she then even though it was across the rubbish, she should not be walking. That's the extra hegemon whatnot. And so she got on this animal to go and enter the house of Earth man to send the message that I am here now what are you going to do? And not without any weapons, we're presence is the weapon, like her presence was meant to intimidate them? Right? So she felt that if I go, maybe that's going to defuse the situation. So panela was really a tragic and she felt the moral obligation, but the people, the mob or the mob. And again, it's one of those sad realities that shows us any human

01:01:59--> 01:02:16

history and our history and Islamic history. It has its ups but it also has its downs. And one of them the famous standing one of our star wars, his name is well known person, well known personality. He didn't touch our mother who could never nobody would ever do that. But he smacked the animal.

01:02:17--> 01:02:53

he smacked the animal. And Sophia understood that these people don't have any minds. They don't have any amount of taqwa, if they can dare to indirectly insult. And he didn't do anything to Sophia, but to the animal, it's indication that don't go beyond here. Right? So Sofia understood that this is not wise. And so she then went back into her house, and did not proceed further. However, what you did command to do was to put a plank between her house and earth man's house, and order that food be delivered from her house, to the house of earth.

01:02:54--> 01:03:33

And so there would be a food supply chain, from her house, to Earth man's house, so that he will be supplied with food. And again, somehow this shows us that and her loving hearts, she just wants to help the situation, do whatever she can. And she tried her best to do whatever she could, but obviously, Earth man's death had been written by Allah subhana wa Tada. And Sophia lived until the month of Ramadan in around 50 or 50 201 of these two days most likely, 50 hedgerow, and she died in the reign of Mao era de la one, around 60 years old, plus 60 plus years old. Again, we don't have an exact date because because of her background, we don't know exactly when she was born, but rough

01:03:33--> 01:04:15

ideas we have. And she did not narrate that many ahaadeeth we have somebody who will do today, probably around 10 Heidi that she has, and one of the interesting things about her is that out of all of the wives of the Prophet Celeste and and perhaps she was the wealthiest one amongst them. She passed away with around 100,000. Durham's, and perhaps it is something that they are aware of Annie She was raised in a way that she knows how to engage in business or whatever. So she passes away with relative wealth. And in her Will she had written that her nephew should be given one third, which is the we'll see Yeah. And her nephew was her sister's son, and her sister's son was still

01:04:15--> 01:04:25

upon the faith of his people. So the people raised a hue and cry a hue and cry that how can we give the wealth of our mother to a Yehuda

01:04:26--> 01:04:27

yahudi

01:04:28--> 01:04:59

and the matcher was raised to a shadow of the logo on it, she's still alive at the time. And Isha said it tequila fear a lot. This is her money. And Allah has given her the right of one third. And this is her will see ya to her own nephew. And so give it to the nephew. So the nephew was given 33,000 did hums which is a mini fortune, and it comes from the household of the prophets of Allah, why do you sell them and this shows us how to live and this is just me

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

Imagine hear her kith and kin are still yahoodi. Think about that.

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

And she is our mother.

01:05:08--> 01:05:42

And this shows us that there doesn't have to be animosity per se, the awkwardness even at a time with us, so how can we give it to them? Right? But it's her relatives, it's her own nephew. And she it's her money that she's gotten as halal money and it's something that she's given to her nephew. And in the end it does go to that person. And that is the max that we have about Sophia a lot a lot of data on her. And as usual, we will finish off with some ahaadeeth from Sophia rhodiola. One, we only have a few Hadith and in the Muslim environment.

01:05:43--> 01:05:45

We have just mentioned three of them.

01:05:47--> 01:06:36

That Sophia mentions and this this hadith that we're going to mention, it is actually motherfuck Allah Bahati and Muslim. So this hadith is actually Sophia is narrating it and it is Bahati and Muslim and also Muslim Imam Ahmed, that Sophia says, I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say that people will continue to attack the Kaaba until an army will come to attack it and they will be in the plains of beta, which is outside of Mecca. And the earth will swallow them up all of them, the first of them and the last of them and no one will be saved amongst them. So I said Yasuda law, how about the one who was forced to be in that army? So he replied, they will be resurrected, based

01:06:36--> 01:06:45

upon their knee. Yeah. And Allah will judge them based upon their nia. So this hadith shows us that

01:06:47--> 01:06:56

the Kava, despite its sanctity, there will be throughout history, attempts to attack it.

01:06:57--> 01:07:03

And one of the more interesting I did not this one is another one, our Prophet system said.

01:07:05--> 01:07:15

None, shall we attack the Kaaba and break the hell out of the Kaaba, other than those who believe in the sanctity of the Kappa, meaning

01:07:17--> 01:07:26

no outsider will ever successfully attack the Kaaba as long as there are Muslims alive. But who will attack the Kaaba?

01:07:28--> 01:07:29

internal war?

01:07:30--> 01:07:34

And this has happened multiple times in history

01:07:35--> 01:08:14

multiple times, most recently, when the current state kicked out the great grandfather of the state to Jordan, how did they get the lands of Makkah army? Right so it has always been throughout history, and even after that in 1979, but this wasn't a civil war but still what happened there you know, the the the the the siege of Mecca, the German Siege of Mecca that I've given a whole many lectures about online. And I have one of my speciality is the amount of given academic papers. Believe it or not, I'm not trying to stop a lot. Sounds very boastful, I should say this at Harvard, I give an academic paper about gentlemen, one of my first papers about a man. And I've studied his

01:08:14--> 01:08:49

books in a lot of detail. And I've given lectures about him. And I've interviewed followers of his and, and whatnot. So I have a personal interest in that. But that incident in 1979, is a very strange incident. And the Hadeeth is there, that there will always be people who are trying to attack the camera, but they're never going to actually destroy the cabin till obviously, who is going to destroy it is going to be after the end of Islam. Right when the Matthew and everybody has gone. But at one of these occasions,

01:08:50--> 01:08:55

an army will attack and Allah will intervene and destroy them.

01:08:56--> 01:09:07

And Allah will open up the ground and swallow up the entire army, the first of them and the last of them and the middle of them, however large the army is they will be taken care of.

01:09:09--> 01:09:21

When will this happen? This will happen when the malady is in Makkah, without any army, and that is the sign that he is the Maddie. And when Joe Hey man did what he did, he banked on this hadith.

01:09:23--> 01:09:26

And his check was not deposited was rejected.

01:09:27--> 01:09:59

He thought Allah would give him this. That's why he did what he did. His whole interpretation was messianic. He didn't have the army to oppose the family of suit. He didn't have an army to fight all the people. He had his group of fanatics, you know, five 600 people, Max, five 600 men, women and children, probably 200 men. That's it, Max. There was one American amongst them as well, by the way, one American was amongst them, and what was his goal, his goal

01:10:00--> 01:10:38

Was that when the family royal family sends his forces, Allah will take care of them. That was his goal. And it didn't happen. Why? Because we do not take the Hadith and write a Hollywood script and enact them. We don't do that. It will happen, it will happen. We don't enact a drama through the body, which is what he tried to do. We don't do that. But the Where did you get the idea from? This is the Heidi here. His entire philosophy was from the hadith of Sophia. That's what he thought would as with the highest bodied Muslim Hadith, authentic hadith, the problem is not the idea. The problem is his fanaticism of the hottest fear of the law. One

01:10:39--> 01:10:40

is that

01:10:41--> 01:11:00

a lady enters upon Sophia, and asks about the BS of the dates. And she says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has forbidden an obese. And this hadith is a very controversial Hadith. What is in the beef?

01:11:01--> 01:11:11

This is a very controversial issue brothers and sisters, and unfortunately, it has been misunderstood in our times. newbies, is a drink that the Arabs would love.

01:11:12--> 01:11:25

And before Islam, and there's a controversy, is it Hello, post Islam or not? And it's basically you take some water, and you put some dates in it for two, three days.

01:11:27--> 01:11:28

And what's going to happen?

01:11:29--> 01:11:43

fermentation right now, generally speaking, the level of fermentation is so so so, so low, and especially if it's for a day or two, that it's not a big deal. Okay.

01:11:44--> 01:12:24

But if you keep it for longer than that, then the level gets somewhat problematic. And so the majority of scholars three months have said no beef. They said, Yeah, and most of the some how long outright and some said like very, very, very mukou. Hold on, like that type of stuff. Okay. And one of the mother, the mother of the people of Kufa, they said that nobody is allowed. And so this is that controversy from the from the time of the past, is it allowed or not? And there's no question is best to avoid it. But technically speaking, if it does not intoxicated, and that's something that we know now modern science, we don't need to get it guesswork. In our times, we don't need the

01:12:24--> 01:13:03

guesswork, any drink that in toxic case, in a reasonably large quantity. 3456 glasses is a reasonably large quantity. If you drink six, seven glasses and you get intoxicated, then one sip of that drink is how long, right? And if you drink a reasonable quantity of an average person can drink a reasonable quantity. Because we don't judge the shady on unreasonable, we don't judge it on three gallons, nobody drinks three gallons, you know in a meal or something. But if a reasonable quantity will not intoxicated, an average person, then the drink is had whether you want to call it macro or not, for other reasons is besides the point, technically The drink is halal. And so we don't have to

01:13:03--> 01:13:08

worry about the two three days. That's the position which others are anyway, so that's the hadith of Sophia.

01:13:10--> 01:13:54

Here we also have some of the famous hadith of Sophia that I went to visit the Prophet sallallahu Sallam while he was in a teacup. And I went at night, and I spoke to him for a long time. Then I stood up to leave. So he stood up with me. She didn't ask for that. He she he stood up with me and walked with me. And my house was next to the house of Osama bin Zayed. So another house of his neighbors was the Suburbans aide, meaning it was from the inside his house. So two of the men of the unsought came when they saw the Prophet sallallahu Sallam they rushed forward. The prophet SAW this Adam said, calm down or slow down. Verily she is Sophia Binti. Hurry. They said subhana wa jasola

01:13:54--> 01:14:10

Law and the Prophets I seldom said, verily shavon runs through the son of Adam like his blood does. And I was worried that shaytaan might put an evil thought into your hearts. So there's the famous Hadith that I have already done. And

01:14:12--> 01:14:14

the final Hadeeth Okay, that's already been done.

01:14:16--> 01:14:58

The other Heidi that I've already mentioned to it, it's a longer Hadith. I'm just going to summarize it. And that is the hadith of Sofia's interaction with Zane up when Xena refused to share the camera with her. So Sophia also narrates that from her perspective and that's also in the Muslim Mohammed. So this brings us to the conclusion of Sophia to the Allahu unha and I was I knew there was so much information, so I was not able to timewise finish up my moon or the Ola one which means we will have had a call on maimunah after the month of Ramadan insha Allah so this is not our final halaqaat I honestly thought it would be but I will have to do one halaqaat for maimunah and then we will have

01:14:58--> 01:15:00

our favorite

01:15:00--> 01:15:10

Well, hello, hello data after that one so there will be a farewell halaqaat and shallow ones that have data and the last week of June insha Allah and then I will be inshallah

01:15:11--> 01:15:20

asking my permission to leave all of you and the end of June inshallah tada without a shot any questions about Sofia or the law one huh?

01:15:26--> 01:15:28

Any questions about Sofia law the law

01:15:35--> 01:15:42

why her father chose the same reason why at least chose Why did you please choose to not prostrate kibber

01:15:44--> 01:15:47

arrogance Allah mentions in the Quran.

01:15:48--> 01:15:54

The reason why they rejected him was because they did not want the prophet to be from the other camp.

01:15:55--> 01:16:01

This is explicit in the Quran. They wanted the prophet to be from their camp. Right.

01:16:02--> 01:16:21

Fela majah Amara Fuca Ruby This was revealed with in response to a number of verses of Bakara, they were revealed about her a by the way, I didn't mention this because of time. But Allah revealed a number of verses about her even that he was the one who recognized the Prophet system. And he said, I'm going to be his enemy.

01:16:22--> 01:16:33

There are many people and I will tell you from my own personal experience, there are many people who know the truth of Islam, but they do not accept it. Many

01:16:34--> 01:16:38

of the most obvious reasons is not even arrogance is just

01:16:39--> 01:17:22

comfort of familiarity. like to have to break away from your culture is not easy to have to leave your set to family and friends. It requires courage, conviction, dedication requires Sophia been to create. It requires somebody who's willing to give up everything when she says I'd rather be a Muslim, a slave than returned to my family. What does that mean? What level of human is that? Think about it, right? It's not easy. She literally says I'd rather be a Muslim and a slave, then return to confer and my family. That's not easy. And that level requires a huge commitment and Allah chooses those will be blesses, you know to be of that of that stature. So we should never be

01:17:22--> 01:17:50

surprised. This is the reality of humanity. Truth is difficult to follow. We can flip it around, I can ask myself, you can ask yourself, why do we commit sins? Why do we knowingly reject the truth when we know it is true? We can ask the exact same question. That same response that I have when I commit a sin, multiply that by a million or whatever, and that's why a non Muslim who recognizes Islam might not accept Islam is just too difficult.

01:17:51--> 01:17:55

So this is the reality of humanity will love them will start shortly.
