Channel: Yasir Qadhi
Series: Yasir Qadhi - Seerah
Shaykh Yasir Qadhi now discusses the subject of argument between the Sunnis and the Shias – the Election of Abu Bakr As Siddiq RA as the 1st rightful Khalifa of Islam.
We have numerous evidences in the Qur’an where Abu BAkr RA has been chosen for the coveted job after the Prophet ﷺ such as in Surah Tawbah and another Surah where the Prophet ﷺ and Abu Bakr RA are hiding in a cave. Rightfully so, there are also innumerable Hadith which highlight the stature and position of Abu Bakr RA.
We have a discussion on the merits of the two famous Sa’ds in the history of Islam. Sa’d ibn Mu’adh, and Sa’d ibn Ubadah. What are they? Listen intently as Shaykh Yasir delves deeper.
Abu Bakr RA, in all probability, chose a delegation which obviously included the senior most leaders such as Umar RA himself and Abu Ubaidah RA. This was done immediately so as to take care of the external matters or matters of the city. As for the internal matters of the household, Abbas RA and Ali RA took charge along with Zubair ibn al-Awwam RA.
When commotion began to ensue among the people on who should be the next Khalifa based on Abu Bakr RA suggestion to choose one amongst Umar RA and Abu Ubaidah RA, Umar RA could not take it any more and he pledged his allegiance to Abu Bakr RA in a raised voice, thus bringing a culmination to all the pandemonium that was happening until then.
The matter of the election of the 1st Khalifa happened in a day. Only when Abu Bakr RA was appointed as the Khalifa and the Khutbah given by Abu Bakr RA was the body of the Prophet ﷺ washed and prepared for burial.
smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi agema in my bed after so many breaks that were unexpected because of the cold front and whatnot and shallower finally Alhamdulillah coming back, I think after one month, how long has it been?
More than a month, like one month, one month, four weeks break, I think right we had. So the word,
Marcia, so it is a four week break. Now we're coming back after that.
This is the fifth week to be very pedantic about it. So.
So for week break, as I said, Lila, and we are now resuming our session. And some people have suggested I should not call this Cyril anymore. And this is a valid point because of course, the zero is now over. Nonetheless, what we're discussing today is related to the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And it is, of course, the election of the halifa, Abu Bakar. So therefore, the love of Thailand. And as every single Muslim is very intimately aware, this is where the theological divide begins between Sunni and Shia Islam. This is really where it all begins. So today's lecture is not just historical, it is also theological. Today's lecture is not just
historical, it is also theological, because we believe and this is the difference between Sunni and Shia Islam, we believe that will work harder. So therefore, the Allahu anhu was the person who was the most suitable to be the halifa. And this is a religious matter, and not just a political matter. And of course, the other group disagrees with this. So the question arises, and so today, we're going to do a little bit about this issue. It's not going to be that detail because this is not a class as soon as versus sheer ism. And I'm not going to give you the Shiri evidences, why not, that's a separate class. I have spoken about this in other seminars, not in this historical but you
cannot talk about the election of Obama without at least giving some indications of the theological differences as well. So the question that arises is how was a worker so the chosen what was the methodology of his choosing? There are three opinions if you like about this issue within Sunni Islam. The first of them is that the Sahaba amongst themselves decided to choose a workers to do there is nothing from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam whatsoever. And this Some have said this is the majority opinion in Tamia also seems to some in some writings lead to this opinion, that the Sahaba amongst themselves thought and talked and then they chose abubaker. The second opinion and this is
narrated from a bazillion others is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam indirectly indicated that aboubaker should be the Khalifa indirectly indicated, not directly, and neither was there nothing, which is the first opinion. And well, let me be precise, the first step in does not say there was nothing. The first opinion says no doubt the process that I've said that Abu Bakar was the best in terms of his father, in terms of his status. But the first opinion would say the process um, did not indicate who should be the political leader after him, right? All of Sunni Islam agrees that a worker's deal is the best Sahabi amongst all of the Sahaba. Right, so the difference comes,
how was he chosen to be the halifa some group will say, the Sahaba realized he was the best, so they chose him to be the halifa. The second opinion says, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam subtly indicated that he should be the halifa. And there hasn't been others indika held this position, that there is nothing explicit. But neither is it neutral. Rather, there's hints shots, that a worker should be the halifa. And the third opinion is what's left now.
The coprocessor clearly said, and this opinion has also been hinted at by some of the earlier authorities, and it is also the position of the famous and the Lucien scholar even hasn't even hasn't said that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam explicitly commanded the Sahaba. It's a command. Right? And this is in exact contradistinction to the sheary
theology, which is that he commanded it to be the Khalifa, that's the sheary theology, and even has them and others say no, the exact opposite. He commanded Abu Bakar to be the halifa. Right. And this is a minority opinion, minority opinion. And frankly, I did some research, I could not find another name other than if it hasn't, it has been narrated, you find it that some people said Who are these people? I could not find anybody other than a minute hasn't maybe there are other people that are saying, this is a very small minority opinion that the Prophet system explicitly commanded the Sahaba that for example, when I die, the halifa should be a worker.
a deal. This is not the majority opinion, the majority opinion is between one and two. The majority opinion is between one and two. And frankly, the two opinions are not mutually exclusive one and two. One and two are not mutually exclusive. Is that clear? In other words, both of them are valid. Because the first group, what is it saying? They the first group is saying that the Hadith about Abu Bakar just mentioned how great of a person he is, and he's the greatest. But then Isn't that an indication as well that,
that he should be the leader? Right. So therefore, in my opinion, really the first and the second opinions are really the same opinion, which is that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not explicitly say, I will but couldn't be the halifa. But there were enough indications that the Sahaba therefore understood, who should be the halifa. So you can kind of combine between the two opinions and make it into one opinion and a lot of xojo knows best. And interestingly enough, as time went by, many aroma and many scholars have seen and many theologians attempted to derive or onic evidences for the khilafah worker, believe it or not, they attempted to derive boronic evidences for the killer for
Abu Bakr, Siddiq rhodiola. One.
So much so that the famous Shang, clearly who is the author of World War advan, he actually derived a little bit of advanced advanced,
convoluted evidence from Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. From the first verse of the Quran, he kept on going, going going until he basically got to the conclusion that and this verse also indicates the LFO blocker so I mean, there are all of these things, but there are some verses that are perhaps a little bit perhaps more indicative than others. of them, of course, is the verse that talks about obika what is the verse that talks about? Oh, Walker?
Is the what
second in the cave? Right. Sania naini in Houma Fillmore. Okay, sarnia naini is Houma for the heart. So, what is the How How can this be used to derive a worker should be the halifa. So they say, if he is the second of the two, then when the first one is missing, who is left?
elbow Walker, right. So Allah says he is the second of the two. So logically speaking, when the first is not there, the second must come and stand in his place. Right? So when Allah subhana wa Taala explicitly calls him 30th name. This indicates therefore that one, the number one is not there and is missing, passed away. Number two will take that place, and frankly, that's not a bad evidence. Okay. It's actually somewhat of a good evidence here that when Allah says overcoat is the second of the two, therefore, when number one is not there, number two then gets into the place. And in fact, linguistically, What does halifa mean linguistically halifa means the one who has been
appointed to be in charge of So, highly qualified means to take over when the person leaves. So, when somebody leaves, then the halifa comes. So when a last set the worker is Danya, 13, then in fact, this makes him kind of the halifa because califa means when the one goes, so then number two comes in, therefore, this is one opinion. Sorry, one, if another IRA that is used as soon as October, verse 100. where Allah says, was sabich owner a Walloon? Amina mo hygena. One I'm sorry, we're letting our own beer son, and those who are a sabya, Kunal a one on the earliest, who raised to convert to Islam, from them, Oh Ha Joon and the answer and those who came after them. So in this
verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala is basically indicating that the earliest converts are the best and they are in order after the prophet SAW Selim. So after the process of Who do you have a sabya Kunal our Luna Mina mo Haji Dena will answer the earliest of the bachelors who raised from and then even there's a 31, Hydra then on salt. So who is the first adult convert of the Mahajan?
workers? Right? So Allah subhana wa tada therefore, is also indicating according to this interpretation, that workers should be should be in charge after the process. And now these are the two verses that in my opinion, have at least in my opinion, some it makes some sense. There are at least seven eight others that are given that, frankly, I don't find much substance in it seems more imaginative, such as hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen. He goes through here and there until the guest says I don't see this as being direct. But these two I think they have some semblance
of authenticity that yes, indeed the Quran is praising Abu Bakar indirectly or directly in the first verse with Tanya tonight, and from this, you can somewhat extract, the theological point that Abu Bakar has to do is the most qualified. Okay, so the Quran does seem to have some indication. As for the ahaadeeth, there are so many a hadith about the blessings of a worker, we can give an entire lecture or two just about those Hadith. But I just want to mention three or four, that indicates that a worker clearly has a status that the other Sahaba do not have, even when it comes to issues of standing instead of or in place of the processor, ie the halifa of the Prophet system. Because
again, What does halifa mean? califa means you're standing in place of somebody else. So what are some of these a Hadith of the most authentic and the most explicit is a hadith in Sahih. Bukhari itself, that the Prophet system is seeing a dream. So he is predicting the future by seeing this dream. And he is saying, while I was sleeping, I saw in a dream that I was standing next to a well, and I pulled from this well, as long as a low world that I pull. So he is now pulling water. Then Abu Bakar came and he pulled a bucket or two.
And in his pulling was some weakness, it wasn't as strong as mine, there was some weakness in it, then Romer Avenue hottub came and the buckets became a and the Arabic word is used, which basically means a much larger so they have different in English, we have buckets, with a small bucket, medium bucket, large bucket. In Arabic, obviously, when you're drawing water from a well, you have so many different nouns to describe the size of the bucket. And the first word used is the blue. And yellow is basically a small canister. Then the next word is user and what came and it became basically the much bigger buckets the much bigger one that is used for watering camels or something and so it
transformed to this one and the prophets are seldom said I have never seen a knob cloudy, like Omar working with the buckets, like anybody else and I buddy, of course
in modern Arabic means genius, but in classical Arabic, it meant something above and beyond what is natural, supernatural or
above normal. So the process some called by the way for the Arabs here, the process some called Ramadan, Abdelhadi, okay. He called him on an abacus. And now buddy means more than regular, okay, more than what not so, the process of said, I never saw anyone, like Omar in the dream, obviously, pulling the water out of the well, so much so that the people returned with their camels to the camel pens, and have had the meaning. So much water was given not only to the people drink, the camels drank, and they drank all the way to their full and the camels that went back to go to sleep. Okay, so this hadith is in Bahati. And the symbolism is obvious. It's beautiful. It's profound. It's
obvious. The process is saying that after I went away after I left, Abu Bakar took over and he continued my job for a year or two.
Because he was only there for a year or two for a buck or two. Right for a year or two. He continued and there was some jerkiness. Some it wasn't a smooth, why not it's not a worker's fault. Things happen in his head after that. It wasn't as smooth. Because what happened in his head over the whole oma fractured up, right? The oma was about to collapse. And Allah saved a throwable worker. So this is now it wasn't as smooth. It's not that boubakeur is problematic is that there are things happening, but he manages to continue the flow. No matter what happened, he's still continuing the flow. And this is what we believe that our bucket is salvaged by the blessings of Allah, He He
healed the wounded oma and word not for a lot and then a loss choosing a worker, the oma would have splintered up. And that's it Islam would not be what it is today. So Bakker managed to continue. And he was needed for Omar to come because of what had come at that time. And he tried to do it that fast, it would have broken the road would have broken, wouldn't have lasted, you needed Abu Bakar to just continue the flow. Once the flow is back to normal, or Omar comes in. And then he takes the flow and he turns it into a river basically, right. Now, he doesn't say river by the way, don't misunderstand me. I'm just trying to say the Hadith says that the small bucket becomes the massive
bucket and everybody and even their camels
To drink, meaning what was the symbolism here?
the conquest of the oma. And it is amazing. In our 14 centuries of khilafah, 14 centuries of Islamic history, the conquests of Roma, remain unparalleled. I mean, honestly think about it. When our technology, our money, our weapon was nothing.
Last time, he managed to do what no other halifa has ever done. And it is really mind boggling if you understand history and whatnot. And you understand the status, the military status of the Arabs, versus the military status of the Romans and the Persians to completely decimate the sassanid Persian Empire, wipe it off the map of history, the Roman Empire could not harm the Persian Empire for 350 years. In fact, the Persian Empire usually was stronger than the Roman Empire. And yet, here comes a bunch of Arabs, an educated, could not read and write, they don't have weapons, they don't have military training, they don't even have the horses and the regiments that the other troops
have. They don't have the armor, they don't have the nothing is there. And for them to come out of nowhere, and completely wipe off the Persians from the face of this earth. Girl, I'm talking a bit nervous as if they never existed. Well, light to this day historians are scratching their heads, like how could we explain this? And of course, they have their theories. But of course, we know the real story. And that is that he told the lecture up of the processor and the processor and said, Allah will tear your kingdom up, like you tore my lecture up. And that's exactly what happened. Barely 10 years after the processor said this house, their kingdom was gone on the hands of a model
of hip hop and the Roman Empire. Around half of it was carved up the jewel of the Roman Empire, Damascus for us. Damascus is associated with, of course, the oma years and the the Muslims realized before Omar concreted, Damascus was the jewel of the Roman Empire. It was on the on the route of the Silk Road, the Silk Road pretty much ended in Damascus, starting in China, all the way to Damascus. And then it moved on to the other lens. This was one of the most important cities of the Roman civilization. And of course, bladder, Sham, Jerusalem, all of this. And it was, of course, in the time of Ramadan, that all of this was conquered. And so all of this conquering, this is the well
becoming that river and everybody's drinking. The water is so much the power there is, is just coming everywhere. And the oma is still benefiting to this day from the conquest of Roma, yBnL hatami. Claudio Allahu taala. And who, so this dream clearly indicates what does it indicate that when I leave abubaker will take charge when Abu Bakar leaves, armor will take charge, okay, even though the Hadees does not mention the khilafah, but it is understood. Other ahaadeeth also install a body. Also inside the body.
A woman came asking for some money, some help some financial aid. And the process of them said, I don't have anything now. But come back on such and such time, you'll get it. So basically nothing now but come back. And I promise you have it. So the lady is desperate. She wants the money. She says, Yeah, rasulillah What if I come back and you're not here?
Meaning what if I don't find you? She didn't mean if you're dead. She meant? What if you're not here? What should I do then? So the prophet SAW Selim said, If you do not find me, then go to Abu Bakar.
Of course, the context of the Hadith is one thing. But the wording
is much broader. And it has really been hedger comments on this hadith. And he said, this is an evidence that the halacha was to be given to aboubaker after the death of the Prophet hustler. If you do not find me, then go to a worker. Now the context indicates, or the context tells us this is about money. The woman wants money, what if she can find the processor, the President said go find out about God, he'll give you the money. That's the context. But the wording is so broad, that the Prophet says in the saying, in any case, you do not find me there is a person that will do what I want him to do, and that is a worker acidic, and therefore this is another Hadith as well. And there
is yet and this is in Bahati as well. And there's yet another Hadith as well, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said as soon as Timothy he said ectodomain lithium and badie a bucket in Oman, follow those who will come after me, Abu Bakar and Omar so he may
To buy name, follow those who will come after me Abu Bakr and Omar and just had it is in Timothy and there's also the famous Hadith in Sahih Muslim that Abu hurayrah was sitting with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and in the garden and the the there was a knock on the door and and we're in Virginia's beloved one versus Abu hurayrah and the process was that go see who it is. And then whoever it is, tell him that Allah gives him glad tidings of gender so it does a worker and then Omar and then Earth man and each one is the same thing. And then what is the profitsystem said to tell either be louder or whatever go tell the truth man that he will get gender after some
problems he'll face in this world some issues he'll face but you'll then get to gender so again you have this indication Oh Baka Omar Earth man all three one after the other. This Heidi this assign Muslim is another prediction. And this is also when it is narrated that the process was sitting in the well and he was sitting with his feet inside the well. aboubaker came Romar came and the wall is now full. So Earth man could not find place to sit on the well he sat behind them. Okay, so once again, there's an indication that the time of glory really will be obachan or Omar's time or with mine will have some issues which is what happened his time of the fitna and the beginnings of the
fitna in his time, and we also have the Hadith and Sunnah Aveda would wear the prophecies and after fudger, he would ask the Sahaba Have any of you seen any dream? So one of the Sahaba said I saw a dream last night. He said, and this is a dream from a Sahabi not a dream from the processor. But the fact that it was said to the prophet SAW said Him in His presence and he was silent indicates that this is a dream from Allah because I clear because a part of the Hadith and a part of the Sunnah is whatever is said to the process, and we're done in his presence, it automatically gets becomes a hadith as long as he's quiet about it. So the Sahaba said that I saw a dream that a meze on the
scale came down from the heavens. And you your rasulillah were weighed against abubaker and you were heavier than obika.
Then abubaker was weighed against Omar
and aboubaker was heavier than normal.
Then Omar was weighed against rathmann and Omar was heavier than Earth man, then the meezan was lifted up.
Now this Hadeeth once again indicates specific 30 specific order Oba Coronavirus, ma, and that is exactly what happened. So this is also a prediction. And all of these are indirect indications. And of course, for a hallucinogenic for Sunni Islam, the strongest indication that Abu Bakar should be the halifa is in fact, what?
The Salah that the process them commanded him to lead when he was sick, For how many days remind me how many days three days and nights when the process was alive. On his deathbed, what got us to do was commanded to lead the Salah. And
so much so that when Omar was the first time came, the prophet SAW sent him on his deathbed sweating, feverish, barely conscious in and out of consciousness. He became irritated with it and others and he said, Stop him and get a boubakeur for Allah and His messenger will not allow anybody other than abubaker.
This is a very strict This is not just who's going to be the Mr. Because had that been the case, what's wrong with anybody leading, but there's an indication wanting to be given, I want to demonstrate for you something and that is who is going to be in charge after me. And the Hadith is very expensive for Yeah, but Allahu wa Sulu Illa Baka. Allah and His Messenger refuse to have anybody stand there other than abubaker. So far as we know, he had to break the sutra because the process of commanded it and a worker has to be called. And then a worker leaves the Salah for three days and nights. And as well, in the last hope that he gave solo I said, I'm sitting on the member,
what did he say close all of the doors of the masjid other than the door over the how how is the the the narrow alleyways that would come in, as I told you many times and I showed it shows you the diagram on the on the TV screen that the massage and the houses were connected with the small alleyway and whatnot. And those habit that had built their houses around the mixture, there's direct access to the masjid. And at the death of the processor he commanded. That's it. No more direct access you enter with the common door. Those of you whose houses are next entering the common door, except one man gets the blessing to enter from his house straight to the masjid. And that is
Obamacare has to do. And this is the last holdover that he gave on the member sitting down, he couldn't stand up, and in that hope, but he said that a person has been given the choice between this world and the next right, that's the hook better in that hood. But he mentioned close all doors other than Obama. So we have so many evidences that have occurred. So therefore the Allahu anhu was the one whom the prophet SAW sent him one to two. Now the question arises, why didn't then the process of simply say,
when I die, America should be the halifa. And to this, there are many responses the strongest one and Allah knows best is he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not want to open the precedent or the door that every halifa must decide the next Khalifa.
He didn't want to have this as the political philosophy is open. If the halifa wants to decide it is allowed. But if the profitsystem had done, it would have become wajib.
And that is why if you look at the four hola for each one of them, did something different. Abu Bakar specified, the next person is going to be a rumor. But Abu Bakar doing it doesn't make it
or Omar specified a group. These are six people choose amongst them.
Correct. Rosemont are the Allahu anhu. Nothing happened. He didn't specify anybody. There was a bit of a chaos. The people that chose Ali rhodiola one, right, so each one of them did something different. And the shediac allows for all of this. And the one that is the
least encouraged is to specify your son. This is not encouraged at all. It does not invalidate the caliphate as some extreme people say, if that were the case, then we would never have had a caliphate since the time of the bus's, which means we only had a caliphate for 30 years. Nobody would sense on his mind says that, but it is not ideal. And it is definitely not the best. And while we are the Allahu anhu for a Muslim that he saw, for he had that he saw he thought it was best to nominate his son. And so the last of the Sahaba who was the halifa? And that's why we opened this door. And where are we as blessing is not like the blessing of Abu Bakar. And is he had is not like
the estaba boubakeur. Yes, it is Helen. Yes, it is. It is but it is definitely not the best to do. And so Allah allowed the last of the Sahaba, who was the halifa to open this door to indicate that it's not invalid if there's a dynasty, and the majority of the oma has been upon a dynasty, but the ideal which is a record amount of man, and it each one was done in a different manner. But the prophet system did not want to open this door. He wanted to leave it open. And therefore, he indicated without specifying, right, without being too verbal. This is the what the wisdom that most of our scholars say. In any case, returning back to our story after this long introduction, what
exactly happened on that day? So remind me again, when did the process and pass away?
Morning? Very good. date?
If not, I thought you said last Okay, it's not actually below 1213 hour. So he passed away on a Monday, early morning after fudger prayer early morning on the 12th of Roby. And
that I do not know actually, I'll have to look that up I do not know I will have to look up other sources. So on the morning of the 12th within a few hours, the same day on Monday, the unsought began began to gather at their usual gathering place. What was their usual gathering place, the usual gathering place was a type of shack a type of if you like a shed, and that in Arabic was called Soccer, FIFA Soccer, FIFA is a covering or a shed something that's just covering up and this shed or this subwoofer was in a garden, and the garden belong to the most famous of the hazardous tribes, which is the Buu saga, which is what sadly been obata belong to. And this was the the usual
gathering place from the days of Jerry Lee from before Islam. They had a gathering place, you know, it was the culture of the Arabs, that there's a gathering place. So within a few hours of the depth of the process and everybody's coming and the Ansel began to gather and of course the conversation gets to what's going to happen now. It is very important to note the unsolved did not send an announcement. Come let us discuss the hill alpha. No. Rather it's human nature.
There are times of a joint calamity, right? You want to go and meet at times of individual calamity. You go and meet the person, somebody relative dies, you go and meet that person, or you go, you go to the family and a joint calamity, something of this nature, you want to find out what's happening, you go and talk. So it's human nature. And especially in that culture, that when anything major happened, the man would go to these types of these types of gatherings. So the answer all began to trickle in, to the sort of banal side and of course, Bernie Sanders is well known in Medina, I have shown it to all the time we have gone for ombre, it is on the back of the message of the neverwet.
If you're facing the Qibla, on the back, right hand side, there is still an actual garden. Right? The Northwestern side, it is still an actual garden. And that garden is the safe side, it is still there to this day. And you can see it clearly when we stayed in the groups that we go with. And you need to go in our group in Charlotte this year. When we go in our groups, we always stay in the hotel right behind the sofa, all of the blocks of hotels, right it is on the back side. And the rightmost hotel, when you exit, you will find the garden in front of you. That is the safer side. So the unsolved began to get in again, I want to point out, there is no maliciousness that let us talk
about the kidnapper. But what is going to happen when all of the men are gathered, and the process has passed away. Eventually the conversation gets to what's going to happen now, who's going to take charge because everybody understands, you need a leader, you cannot live without a leader. You need somebody in charge. And so eventually, this conversation ensues. And the main person that they looked up to and whose name continually came up was their senior most finger at the time. And that is sad, even robota. sized Ivanova was the senior most leader of the huzar Raj. And of course the has Raj and the house, the two of the unsightly tribes. The has Raj were the larger of the two.
Remember, I had said this I think two or three years ago, so I'm sure all of you remember everything I've ever said so no problem. Mashallah. So the 100 Raj was the larger of the two tribes, okay. And which, which was the richer of the two, the most was the richer of the two, but the hazard was the larger of the two. So quantity counts here. And so
amongst the hazards, another blessing the hazard had was that the hustler joy, the ones who first embraced Islam and then the most embraced Islam. So the first day at Aqaba, the first group who converted when the processing gave that work, excuse me, the first group, remember the process and pass them by and he said which tribe were you? They said, The has Raj. There was no O's in the first Congress from Medina. So because of this, the quantity and the earliness so the husbands have an upgrade status. Therefore, the husbands began talking amongst themselves and sad even obata his name was basically understood that he is our leader, if anybody's going to be a leader from the unsought
is going to be sad, even robota. Now, pause here, who is it that we need to understand before we move on? Firstly, remember that there are two famous sides of the unsought two famous sides of the unsought side they've been wired and side they've been bad. And of the two side even more odd is much higher in delta. Then side they've been Roboto and the both of them are blessed. But of the two sides even more ad is much higher.
Not only did he convert first, so they've been while he was the one who
spoke at the Battle of butter, which was one of the greatest blessings of any unsavoury.
Who was the Ansari who upgraded the pledge from mere protection to offensive fighting. That is sad, even robot suicide have been wired. Excuse me, the other side, not our side.
Are you guys remembering what happened at but you all remember what happened at butter, right? When the processor never said, What do you guys think? And I will but Chris stood up and stood up, everybody stood he kept on saying what do you guys think? What do you guys think? Until finally sad. Even more? Not nobody stood up and said, perhaps you're wanting to know our answer. That's why you keep on asking you have a suit of law. He said yes, that is it. So then he gave that beautiful eloquent speech, which concluded in go charge in the water. Yeah. rasulillah we will charge behind you. And we will not say to you like the bunny astray said to Moosa go and fight you and your Lord.
No, we will say go and fight. Join your Lord and we are right behind you fighting along with you. That is sad even more as and when did he die
after the Battle of the conduct, and the
When he passed away the Prophet system said, the throne of Allah shook at the death of side they've been wired. The process of them said 70,000 angels came to take the soul of side even more eyes and the process of himself pray janaza fourside have been wired and expressed a lot of dismay and regret at his at his death. That is sad even more alive. And he is of course no longer alive has gone into zero. Okay, side they've been Obeida was the second of the two sides. And this is the one we are talking about now. And sad. Ivanova also has a long list of resume of great things, but not like side by side devinwatson. Even Wilder is the result much higher side David Rather, he was of those
who participated in the second treaty of Aqaba, not the first by the way, the second, the second treaty of Aqaba, the Secretary which had 72, right. And he was one of those who was chosen to represent his sub tribe. So he's one of the 12 know about who are the chosen. So sadly, bin Avada is therefore one of the elite of Africa. And he participated in every single battle from birth. And so he's a buddy, so automatically when you're a bundler, you get a huge upgrade. So sad the robot is from the brother. He was also of the wealthier of the unsought because of his father and grandfather. They were somewhat chieftain statuses, and so he has inherited money and inherited
generosity as well. Both his father and grandfather in the days of jelenia. were known for their hospitality, and he inherited this from them. It is said that he would regularly feed most of the people of the sofa. Even hedger mentions that on days when somebody would take one or two or three sides, Ivanova would take 80 of the people of the sofa, to his house to feed them society. Nobody was over those who had huge heart, very generous person always feeding the poor, and many are the things narrated about him in the famous Hadith when the process then came to the house of sad even roba. So this shows you his status, that the process and for some reason, he wants to speak about
the huzar something he goes to the house of sight even robot and from outside of the house. He says Salam or aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu. That's what you do. There is no ringer there is no bell. How do you say a Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. So sad. is so happy to hear that. He whispers back. Why do you call musala? Very whispering. Right. And the process of is outside he doesn't hear. So he raises his voice for the second time and he says it and sad. whispers back then the process of raising his voice and for the third time and sad whispers back. What are you supposed to do after the third time? Leave? So the process of left one side the heard the footsteps he goes
running outside he says Yasuda law. I heard you the first and second and third time and I responded to you, but I wanted to hear your daughter's over and over again. So assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. When the process of missing a Santa Monica, you want more? Okay, so sad one to two here the setups. So he keeps on saying, I responded to sutala but not that loud, so that you know, you can keep on giving it to me, right? He didn't say like that. But you get the point that he said, Yeah, absolutely. I heard you outside. I responded, but, you know, come in. So this has sadly been robot decided they've been Avada. And also, we also have a number of ahaadeeth that have been abuzz,
for example, mentions that whenever the prophet SAW I sent him gave the flag to any, in any army, he would always choose sight, even obata to carry the flags for the unsought and therefore, even in the conquest of Mecca, sad even Obama was the one carrying the flag for the unsought. So he himself was representing the unsought in front of the profitsystem. So the flag of the unsought was given to him by the hands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also, we have other Hadith where the process of specifically mentioned by name, may Allah bless the unsought and especially May Allah bless sadly bitter about it from the inside. So sadly been obata definitely, he has a long resume of blessings
and whatnot. And therefore it's understood that even the unsaved recognize who is sad, even robota. So going back to our story, therefore, when the new spreads that people are gathering together, somebody comes and abubaker an omelet are still in the masjid, this is now we don't know the exact timing we're assuming this is now before the lower time because the process and passes away early morning, maybe seven o'clock eight o'clock very early morning. We don't know exactly when but in a few hours, the news spreads I will Buchan and Omar are in the main Masjid and somebody comes and tells them that Do you know that the unsought are gathering together and they are talking about the
conversation has now gone to basically who is going to take charge. So, Omar said Let us go to our brethren from the unsought and discuss this
matter with them, let us go and discuss this matter with them. And of course, our bucket agreed. Now,
here is where
we don't have any eyewitness report other than one. And that is from Omar the love language himself. And therefore, there are many other details that nobody will ever tell us. We don't know what the details are. We only have one eyewitness who told us what happened and that is himself. It is not at all unlikely that the Prophet that sorry that a worker
went and chose a number of people to accompany him. We don't know this. All we know is a group of them Mahajan. But who, how did they come about? How did that particular group come?
I would theorize and Allah knows best that abubaker has to do chose the right group to go with him. Because it's not a coincidence, in my humble opinion, that unwearable, hottub and abort obey the Ombudsman Jarrah just happened to be sitting, and three of the National mubasher are right there in that gathering, rather, Abu Bakar must have chosen the delegation. And the senior most members are, of course, our Modus hatami himself and aborto VEDA and JIRA. Now, as for the issue of ID and Zubaydah, blah, blah, and others.
From our perspective, Sunni perspective, the profitsystem has just passed away. And clearly, somebody has to take charge of the inner household mattress, and of consoling the family and household and, and there is no doubt that Alia the loved one who is the person who is the most closest to the process of in terms of blood and lineage from the men site. And there's nothing about that, that we have to be at all awkward or embarrassed. But of course, he's going to take charge of taking care of the inner matters of the household of the process of, of the hustle of and so I bust an alley, the uncle and the cousin of the son in law, these are the two who took charge of them
inner matters. And that's understood. And it's debatable that one as well is of the cousins of the Sahaba. So this is understood also from our perspective, and just a little bit and again, this is a very deep thing. And I don't personally see the point in going into a lot of detail. These controversies between the Sunni and the Shia, have existed for 13 and a half centuries, and nothing I will say today will add or decrease these facts. And if anybody wants to study them, believe me, hundreds of books in every language imaginable has been written the evidences for the Sunni, the evidences for the Shia, back and forth each and everything on and on and on. And we can't reinvent
the wheel. This is all there. And I don't see much benefit in continually talking about this. But we certainly should know our history, just like they know their history, we should also know our history, from our perspective, our little the Allahu anhu, is now barely 30 years old, in his early 30s, and abubaker, and Omar, and Rosemont, even are almost double his age.
And it really does not make sense to take somebody with some experience at the expense of somebody who has three, four decades of experience. In other words, from our perspective, are they not the Allahu anhu became the halifa when he deserved to be the halifa when he came to the right age, and the maturity and whatnot. And that's when he became the califa. At this stage and age, it was not even on their radar, that somebody so young, and remember, what got us to the UK and others, they have known it since he was a child and a baby. And it is human nature that when somebody is that young, and you've grown up with him, they're not going to be on the radar at this stage. Not only
that there has been the tragedy of the death of the processor when they're busy. So it's not as if there's an intentional conspiracy. From our perspective, it is ludicrous to assume there's a conspiracy, there is no conspiracy, or I'm sorry, I do the law one became the halifa when he deserved to be the halifa. And that was when he came to that right age of majority one obachan on earth man have have moved on. And then it was his turn, and we admire and respect every blessing about him. In any case, back to our story. I said it is not unrealistic to theorize that I will work on a study I went and chose the right people for the delegation who is going to go and talk about
this issue. And on the way to the suffer. They met two of the unsolved and when these unsolved is found out where they were going to express some wordiness and they said maybe you shouldn't go it's best not to go there worried maybe there's gonna be a shouting match. There is no worry of physical violence because that's not happened in the time of the Sahaba. But Omar said no inshallah, we will go and there will be many
In our going, so, Omar continued on and remember this is the only narration we have is from Omar himself on what is the only one who narrated the first person he's there he witnesses it. Unfortunately, we don't have any other narrations or else we could have had a lot more details and aroma narrated, I began his narration directly. He said when we got there, we found the unsought had gathered in the South Africa. And between them was a man wrapped up in a shawl.
We said Who is this? They said, this is sad. Ivanova, he is sick with fever. So it just so happened that he was sick. So therefore, he's wrapped up and shivering and whatnot. So he had a fever, it was just under a lot was at the time, he had a fever. So after we had arrived, the delegation has arrived, you know, the the trivial formalities are done, then one of the Ansari stood up.
And he said after praising Allah, as to what follows. So we are the unsubtle law on sobre la, the helpers of Allah. And we are the vanguard of Islam. We're the ones who defended Islam, and you are group of Maha Joon, or a group amongst us. And you came to us, one by one bit by bit, and joined us.
Meaning in a very polite manner. Very nice manner. There's no, in back and forth, there's no derogatory terms, but each group feels at this time more qualified. So the unsought are saying, in terms of sheer quantity, you guys are miniscule.
The unsought are probably probably two 3000.
These are like the elite senior as for beyond the much more than this, and the more hide your own are probably to 300. Because again, I mean, who's gonna we're talking about them? Well, hi, Julian from pre conquest, obviously, right after conquest, what No, there is no so pre conquest those who are like the the senior of the of the kurush, probably one 10th of the unsolved. So the unsolved from their perspective, from their perspective, they're saying, I mean, we are so large, you guys came one after the other? Because how did the margarine come? 123. And then slowly you guys came. So it's pretty obvious that because we're so many, we should be the leader, and you are just one home
from amongst us, you would like one minute drive from almost all of us. So they're looking at it from their perspective. And there's an element of truth from their perspective. So when he's speaking like this, Omar says, so as he was speaking, I thought to myself, What would I say, for the world to kind of see calaman I'm thinking to myself, what are my points I'm going to say,
and when he fell silent, I was happy that I have all of my points listed. Colossians is speech ready now. Okay. And I was gonna say something, and I knew it would be a little bit harsh. And I knew a worker would find my statements a little bit harsh. When I was about to stand up. A worker pulled me down.
And he said, stay put, or Omar aleris, slick, stay put, or Omar. So Omar says, so I was scared to make him angry. So this is Omar, the only person that Omar is not wanting to make angry. So I listened to him, because I didn't want to make obika angry, then Abu Bakar stood up.
And he praised Allah subhanho wa Taala and gave a lecture and Armada saying by a law, he was wiser and more gentle than I would have been.
And there was not a single point that I had in my mind. Except that aboubaker said it or better than it.
Notice here or most humility, Omar is narrating this in his own head, ah, by the way,
when a walker has passed away, almost telling us the story as a longer event, which I don't have time to tell you. But basically, very quickly,
rumors began to spread in the time of our model deola, one that will buckers khilafah was simply a coincidence, it just happened, that it wasn't thought out. And that if we had thought it out, somebody else should have been the halifa other than him. When Omar heard this, he became angry. He became incensed. And he called the meeting of all of the Sahaba.
And then he told the story. So this story is what I'm narrating to you. Okay. So this is the first person now he's telling them. So he's praising Abu Bakar in this manner, that no matter what I had, in my mind, a worker had something better than me. And he said every point that I had, and he said, Every Hadith that we had heard about the praise of the onslaught
and of what he said was
That the process that I've said, that sort of occurred is saying that, and I know for a fact that the Prophet system said, if all of mankind took one path and the answer took the other path, I would follow the path of the unsought. So he is going on and on about the blessings of the unsolved look at the wisdom of avoca. You don't begin the speech by putting somebody down.
You want to impress somebody, you want to change their mind. Well, then you show them you respect them for who they are. This is the wisdom of Obama. And perhaps if Obama had done it, he would not have done all of this. He Himself said that I had some harshness, and I knew a worker would find my speech harsh. I knew that would happen, but he never spoke, because Allah willed him not to speak. So I will Barker begins by praising the onslaught, every idea he can think of about praising the unsought. Then he moves on. And he says, And oh, sad. So he points director said,
I know that you were sitting right in front of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he himself said,
it is the Quraysh, who shall lead this matter of hours,
the righteous amongst them shall lead the righteous of mankind, and the Empires shall lead the empires of mankind. So he quoted a hadith
that the Prophet system is saying, the leaders shall be from the aurash.
And he pointed to sad, who is the one contender, the one person that might people might, and he says, oh, sad. You remember that day when he said, The hidey hole right there, I was there. And this is so beautiful. Because by pointing two sides, and then according to Heidi, and then saying, we were both there that day, how then can anybody go against this?
So he mentions a hadith that kind of solves the matter, it can't be from the unsought, then he gives, so after Howdy, he then brings logic, and he says, and, you know, alongside, that the Arabs will not follow anybody other than the Kurdish, meaning their jelly is still there in that regard. And you own saw, you're not going to be accepted by the rest of the Arabs, whereas the quraishi, they will accept him, because they are the best of the Arabs in lineage and in house meaning in lineage meaning in terms of shutoff they are the most honorable, and that is a generally and in terms of house meaning Makkah. They have the most noble list of houses meaning Mecca, and therefore,
the leaders should be from the aurash at this sad said, So, Doctor, you have spoken the truth, you are the leaders, and we are the helpers. And tomorrow O'Meara why not loser, ah, so sad. And this shows his demand by the way.
This shows is a man that when the evidence is presented, how abouts you're right i can i How can you argue with the head, so you are the leaders, we are the helpers. So doctor, you are the O'Meara You are the wizard, then I will back out of the Allahu anhu held on to the hands of Roma and abort Aveda. And here is my point here, and that is that Abu Bakar acidic clearly was planning this out to nominate these two is not just a coincidence that it's so happened that these two people sitting next to him know, a worker. So they wanted these two people to be next to him. And he brought them with him to the sacrifice of a worker in his modesty did not want to be the holiday for he did not
want to nominate himself. That's not the appropriate way. But he has in mind the next two best people and of the next two best people, and that's of the Ashura mubasher of the 10 who have been promised gentlemen. So he picks up the hand of Omar and he picks up the handle about Aveda American Jarrah. And he said, I have nominated these two, whichever of these two you like, choose him. And this is also hikma. Because when you give somebody an option,
it makes it easier for him to choose, even though before you gave him the option, he wouldn't have chosen either of them. In other words, the unsought they weren't thinking of the whorish they were thinking of themselves. And a worker did not say, oh, here's Omar give him because then they would feel they have to, rather he opens up the door. He says, you guys choose between these two matters. Okay. And this is again, I mean, it will lie we find here wisdom of a leader will find your true psychology of leadership and our brokenness that Allah blessed him with to understand how to control an oma that without any tension, nothing is actually you know, misafirler there's no battletech
there's no swords being drawn, but still humans are humans and the Sahaba the Sahaba and power is power.
We say and there is no harm in saying this. Yes, indeed, some of them might have desire this for halal reasons, you think you will do good for the home. This is no no doubt about it. But
who is the one who really should be chosen in this case, it is the one whom Allah azza wa jal desired, and that is a worker. And so when he said this, pub is narrating the story, and he said, that I swear by Allah, this was the only paragraph Alo Booker speech that I hated, that he nominated me and aboral VEDA, and he said, it would be more beloved to me to be executed. As long as there was no sin involved that I had done, then to lead a group, or be a halifa of a group in which abubaker was present. In other words, I'd rather die than be in charge of a worker, I'm not qualified to do that. This is Omar speaking in his enough to a group of people who said maybe Obama wasn't the best,
maybe somebody else would have been the halifa. Or Omar is saying, I would rather have my head chopped off, then be the halifa over Abu Bakar. So this is Romer is fixing this in his own khilafah. So when a worker said this statement that choose one of these two,
one of the unsolved one of the unsolved then said, I have a solution, I will give you another solution. Why don't we have two Amir's one from us and one from you?
Mina, Amir woman, come me. Okay, so we're both going to be happy. But of course, you can't have two drivers and do captains on a ship. And so when he suggested this, a lot of lot or raising of the voices, you know, what happens when you're in any gathering, obviously, what happens? Somebody says this, somebody says that, and so it's all chaos and confusion. And at this, Omar said, so I raised my voice when everybody's voice is being raised, or Omar has the loudest voice, and the deepest voice, and he says, Oh, I will buck or stretch forth your hand. And I will back her put his hand forward. And Omar then said, We shall give the VR to you. And so Rama was the first person to
nominate aboubaker and then give the baotou, a vaca sudip. And then the Mahajan and the unsought followed. And therefore, this was how the matter was done. And there are and I have to be again, part of part of my job, in this series of lectures is to also tell you that which you might not have heard or that which might not be the rosy side of the picture. And I do this because you are aware, and there are plenty of narrations in various books that sad, even Obama was not satisfied with this matter. According to some reports, he said that you guys have forced me to do this.
And the response was given to him, it is better that you are forced to remain with the GMR then we let you go and you cause felco. And if this report is authentic, there's nothing wrong with that.
Because it is not how long to have these types of feelings and emotions to desire certain things that are not held on to desire, you can desire, fame and money for health reasons. And if sad, even Obama wanted to be the halifa he wanted it for good reasons. So there's nothing wrong with this. He thought he would do a good and better job that is his prerogative. Now, this is one report. Others that they they say all of these reports are baseless, and they're just fabrications. So that is also an opinion out there. Then there are clear cut fabrications, we typically find them in pro sheet resources. Okay, so there are historians that are Sherry in nature or quoting Sherry, narrator's
such as Bella Zhu Li, such as the narrator, I will make fun of leukopenia here, this narrator
is the one who by the way, when we talked about when we talked about Karbala, the first Shiri author to ever write about Karbala was a woman of Lithuania. And he wrote a book about McDowell Hussein. And that book is the basis of all of the Shiri narratives about what happened in Karbala. So this same guy I will mention of Lithuania, whom we as soon as do not trust at all. I mean for us, he is a Zapier and he says nothing is just nothing to do with history for us. He's just a
person who fabricates from his perspective, but he has an aberration which is a clear cut fabrication. We don't accept it at all. I'm only telling it to you. So you know if you hear it, where does it come from? According to him, sad Eben Obadiah. Refuse to pray in the gym or pray behind aboubaker refuse to go for Hajj refused
To participate in anything, and this is clear cut fabrication in our Sunni sources, we find minor disapproval. For example, He says, you guys forced me. And then the response is to force you to to join is better than letting you go. This is we know it's within the acceptable parameters. Okay? And some have said, even this is not there. And there are other references. And this is from our own Sunni tradition. So I'm just telling you to so you know, there are also references that when a walker passed away, then Omar became the halifa. So, again, sad felt that maybe it was more deserving. And so eventually, he decided to leave Medina, rather than cause the fitna or whatnot. He
just decided to go and live a separate life. And this is one interpretation. The other interpretation is, he went for Jihad and he died outside of Medina because of jihad. In any case, the point is that sad even robota
does not really have much of a mention after this incident, he does pass away in the Concord Sham area, he goes in he dies in Sham. And there are also by the way, legends of side they've been robota, which is one of the most bizarre legends of our traditions. And these are legends These are not the Hadeeth these are not authentic narrations. These are simply found in the books that the jinn killed, sad even or bad.
Okay, this is a famous thing, that who amongst the Sahaba, was killed by the jinn? And this is a quiz question asked many times. And the response has sadly been robota because he was discovered
in his house, basically with an arrow and they say a voice was heard that the jinn were boasting that we have killed sad urban robot.
This is one of those bizarre things as we said, it's a legend. And I don't see the need to have it happen and happen if it didn't have it didn't happen. Our religion is not based upon this analyzer widget knows best. In any case, even robot that passed away within two, three years in the 14th year of the hedgerow, or some say the early part of the 15th year of the Hydra side, but passes away Also, before we move on very quickly, inshallah we'll finish around five minutes before we move on as well. I mentioned that Obama quoted the head is that the Hollywood will be from the koresh, this
command from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is in fact mutawatir ie dozens of a hadith reported and we find reports inside bodies I muslima. without me even imagine every single book of Hadith. So much urban Hydra says I found over 40 narrations
of different wordings, all of which mentioned a moment koresh or anass, whatever, and the college we had an hour basically, so many a hadith that mentioned the leaders of my own must be from the Quran. Now, this, this hadith and these commands, always raise a lot of eyebrows in many Muslims. And they say what, why? And their response to this as well, frankly, maybe we can't answer why the process Some said it, end of story.
That's really the best way to say that, okay, how's the process have said it.
And some scholars have given reasons why. But in any case, the sheer quantity of a hadith in this regard, one cannot negate them, and therefore,
Sunni and Shia Islam, one of the things we actually agree about, is that in order to encourage except that the Shia say not just any quarter she only lol bait, but to suddenly say any hora de ne Hiroshi The only people who oppose this with a high wattage and the martyr Zilla. As for Allison, and even the Shia, they said the leaders have to be from the tribe of kurush. As for the Shia, they said, not only from others, but from only from a little bit. Okay, so from our perspective, and this is something all of those who wrote in Islamic political science, like what are the and like others of the classical tradition about the lady who has a little section about political sciences in his
book. So all of these great authors, they all mentioned in hedger, they all mentioned that our leaders should be from the crush. And of course, for the bulk of our oma, that has been the case. The oma is a quarter sheet. The Ibis is our oroshi it was only in the time of the Ottomans where this was taken away. And
there's another question What if he's not from the forest? Does that negate his Caliphate? Or does it simply mean his Caliphate is missing something but it doesn't negate it? The majority of people said, it doesn't negate his caliphate. So the Ottoman Caliphate is valid. But it's better to have that if we if you had the option to choose, then you should choose the person who has this noble lineage. In any case, frankly, there's no explanation other than the process and commanded it and so be it and then we conclude with
what happened on
The next day, and that is on the Tuesday on the 13th. There'll be an hour. So, on the Monday, within hours of the death of the Prophet sallallahu, I send them I will bucker has now been decided amongst the senior high gentlemen, and amongst the senior on sock, he has been decided. And this shows us the severity of the matter, that barely a few hours after the death of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the Sahaba have decided who shall be their leader. And now the new spreads, and that people are told come and show up on Tuesday to give you a bay after obaku to do so, after the morning prayer on Tuesday, so barely 24 hours after the death of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the Sahaba
gathered in the masjid and the process of his body is still in the house of Arusha. He has not yet been buried. He has not yet been buried, and aboubaker comes and sits on the member. And this is most likely before a lot of work, most likely before it's allowed to vote. So the people have come in the daytime, and they're waiting there. And Omar stands up and he introduces a worker and he basically says that oh people. What I said yesterday, was something from me. Neither did I find it in the book of a law, nor did the process and tell me about it. Anybody remember what did you say yesterday?
So what did Omar say?
So what did Omar say? Where did the pacifism go?
He's not dead. He's speaking with a lie. He's gonna come back. Okay, so now Omar wants to make up for what he said yesterday. Notice now, so he says what I said yesterday.
This is not something that I heard from the Prophet system, nor is it found in the Quran, I made a mistake, basically, because they're trying to say, okay, that don't think that, you know, it was basically from me. And he said, I thought that the Prophet system would not leave us until everything was over. And he would be the last of us to go, meaning we'd all die before him. This is what his thought. So Omar is saying, I thought we would all be gone before him, it never occurred to me, he would die before us. But Allah has left you with his book, and in it is the son of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, so hold on to it, and you shall be guided. And Allah has gathered
your affairs, and chosen the best of you, the Sahaba su de la, the 30th naini, with whom I feel or the brother that is overcrowded, so do so stand up and give by to a worker. And therefore, everybody stood in line and gave the oath of allegiance to Obama. So do one after the other, until when everybody was done, our bucket then stood up, and he gave that three sentence hotel, which is one of the most powerful hotel has ever given. In fact, no, I should say it is the most powerful hook ever given by any political leader after the profits of the law instead of and all of us have heard it on and off here. And there is just three lines and is something very beautiful. Obama said, Oh people,
I have been put in charge of you, even though I am not the best of you.
So if I do good, then help me. And if I do bad, then correct me. being truthful is the essence of trustworthiness. And lying is treachery. And the weak amongst you is strong in my eyes until I returned to him is right, meaning the weakest amongst you are the closest to me. Until whatever he needs, he gets it. And the strongest amongst you is of least significance to me is the weakest in my eye. In other words, don't be fooled by who's weak and strong for me, the weakest amongst you have the most power for my time and attention. And the strongest amongst you are the ones who don't need anything from me until I take the right from them for the poor. And never does a group leave
striving for the sake of a law, except that a law strikes them with humiliation and never does far harsher lewdness and evil spread, except that Allah envelopes them with his punishment, obey me as long as I obey Allah and His messenger. But if I disobey Allah and His Messenger, then I have no right on you that you should obey me. That was his hook. But then he said, stand up and pray, may Allah azzawajal Have mercy on you. That was the first holdover of avocados to do. And after he gave us heartburn, that was when the body of the process of now being washed and prepared for burial. After this, the discussion began where he should be buried. We talked about that already. After
this, the people began to pray. We talked about that already. So all of the hidden issues have already been done. within less than a day, everything is settled, and the matter has been decided. And the people continue to pray continue to pray upon the purposes of body until
Finally they began after the whole of Tuesday. And the sheer quantity of people continues. Now the goal was to bury him that day. But the sheer quantity of people kept on kept on kept on until they were forced to bury him late late night. We don't know exactly when. But once they had come, once they had come, does this mean he was buried at Russia time at 12 o'clock? We don't know. But late night, we would say Tuesday, which in the Muslim calendar is early Wednesday, right? Late Night Tuesday, was when the processing was buried. And that is of course early Wednesday from the Islamic perspective that and of course, he's buried in his house so you don't go there. There's no going
out, he's buried right then and there. And with this, we conclude the story of the election of avocados. So these are the last one who and inshallah Tada. We will
continue inshallah, our series about the Sahaba on mahamuni. inshallah, with Allah next Wednesday, one quick question, we don't want to
that was the one thing I was trying to avoid this entire.
This does not have a simplistic response. And I'm debating whether I should do this next Wednesday or not.
The problem comes so let me let me tell you
a lot of you have been wanting me to do the whole Faraj you don't.
And I have not said yes, in fact, I am saying no. for one simple reason, while multiple but one reason. And that is that
when we talk about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we have no problems,
reading everything in perfectly for him. Because he is Rasulullah. So I said him, whenever he did, halus, he did it. He is he is Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. But the Sahaba are not the prophets.
And the Sahaba are very human. And you already noticed in today's lecture, certain things here and there that
perhaps to gloss over, it might even be better. And the Sahaba did have minor issues amongst themselves and minor disputes, which is human nature.
And here's the point, we don't have to agree with every HD head of every Sahabi.
Whereas we do have to agree with every inch, the height of the prophecies. So when you talk about the Sahaba
and then you talk about what happened in their time and then especially especially Earth man, and then especially ideas about the love and his time. And you talk about Safina and you talk about the Battle of Jamal, wala he This causes doubts in the minds of the average Muslim. And the fact of the matter is, nobody discusses these matters, except that your heart becomes hard rather than soft.
And it is better for the bulk of the oma to really not know too much about what's going on. Not every knowledge is beneficial.
Not every knowledge is beneficial. These were times of fitna things happened, things were said people lost their lives, people who we admire and respect we're fighting on both sides of the spectrum. And we look up to the both of them,
which they had happened shavonne cause divisions to flare up. And I do not know of any scholar who has talked about these matters, except that he himself has gotten into trouble.
Because you're never going to please everybody. Right? And the people that he's speaking to as well, more questions are raised up.
So my philosophy about this issue is the philosophy Ma'am, I made him the humble who said when he was asked about this fitna between the Sahaba he said, that was the time that Allah subhana wa tada saved our swords from getting involved or you were weren't alive at the time. So let us save our tongues from getting involved as well.
Meaning Let's just be quiet about it. It happened it happened. This just things move on. Let me give you an example. You will not understand I know it's getting a little bit late. Let me give an example in our own daily lives. You know, we all have our problems with our brothers, sisters, parents, wives, spouses, you know, we have issues, fights, Spats, things go on hamdulillah things patch up. Is it wise to go back to a fight you had with your brother, your sister, your wife and go over each and every detail? Think about it. Something happened five years ago. Now it's gone. hamdulillah you're now moving on? Is it wise to go back and say Oh, she said this. I said this. He
said this. What's going to be gained will lie is going to bring more painful memories. Hamas has gone is gone. So for us, we respect the Sahaba more than we respect and he is better
That we just let it go. It's better that we gloss it over and not going to the minute. He said that she said that. And the other problem comments here is where the whole theological differences come between Sunni and Shia. And you are not going to please even here's the problem. Even within Sunni Islam, there is a spectrum.
There's a spectrum, especially when it comes to Maui or the Allahu anhu. Right? That
much is said, between minor criticism, some even harsh criticism, some even more than this right? versus much praise and you're not going to please everybody here. And my position is the position of majority of Arizona which is that while we are the Aloha Rhino is of the Sahaba and he is of the minor. So However, he is not of the major Sahaba but he is so heavy, and what that means is we do not criticize any Sahabi even if we disagree with an HD hat, we don't criticize his integrity, we think that he meant the best for the oma and let it be, let it be shared with Allah subhana wa tada and he is but all the Allahu anhu worldwide he is of those whom Allah is pleased with, not to the
level of the great 10 but he's still made it as a Sahabi young boy young man when he was 1819 but he's also happy and Allah xojo will for him to be the founder of the one of the greatest dynasties we have seen and that is your way of dynasty It is best to be quiet about any other issue. So I will not be talking about the Sahaba in detail, at least in terms of avacado mode of mind it in that manner. But I'm still thinking about what we should be doing afterwards and what meaning So, let me think about that still, but inshallah Allah will begin inshallah next ones do get an email. What do we decide to do? A lot of region knows best indicates it is late in Sharla. So let us stop for
selected Asia and we'll continue next Wednesday.
