Bismillah Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina. Muhammad Anwar Ali was a big marine about today's topic is one of the most difficult topics, and I have been postponing it for a long time. But then I realized that there's no point delaying it, you have to obviously, deal with the facts, and then you know, discuss it in a academic manner. And, well, the fact of the matter is, I would rather not have to discuss this topic and all of the allegations and all of the stories and whatnot. But we're living in a climate and a time and a place where our profit system is attacked by so many different sources by so many different people. And they bring forth all types of

00:00:59 --> 00:01:02

calumnies all types of issues. And

00:01:03 --> 00:01:18

I'd rather you hear it from me. And we discussed it in analytical detail the way that we talked about the Satanic Verses, if you remember, we talked about it in a lot of detail. We mentioned different reports. And then we came forth with a conclusion. And we explained, if you remember, there were three different versions out there.

00:01:19 --> 00:02:01

Then we explained which one who said what and why each group said that. And similarly, the in this case, the story of Xena been to judge is also a very contested and a very controversial and a very sensitive story. And in some ways that is even more sensitive than the story of the Satanic Verses, because it deals with what is considered to be a love story. by many of the non Muslims, it is considered to be a story of issues and a story of muhabba. And so obviously, it becomes much more sensitive. And it's a very awkward discussion to take place. And this is really an issue that many of the later scholars, in fact, completely turned away from it and did not even mention it in their

00:02:01 --> 00:02:42

books. And we only find this in the earliest books, the versions that we're going to mention. And as I said, had we been living in a different time and place in a very Islamic environment. There's no need to go into all of these versions, but I would rather we talk about it in a confined environment, so that when you're exposed to it outside by an Islamophobic person, by an anti Islamic website by sources that are not so sympathetic, at least you will know the correct version, or at least you know, what are semi plausible interpretations? And then we talked about it shall Allahu taala in a more academic manner. Now, who is the nibin to judge and when did she marry the prophet

00:02:42 --> 00:03:28

SAW Selim and what is so controversial about the marriage? Well, Xena was not born Zeynep Xena was born bhatura Xena was born Bala and she was from the tribe of the Bernabeu hoceima so she is not new Hashem she is Cora Shiva. No Cosima is of the chorus tribes. She's over the bundle hoceima but her mother was omega Binti abdon mo Polly. So the I'm of the process of the la vida, he was saying that her mother is the sister of Abdullah. Right. And so from her mother's side, she becomes a first cousin of our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And she was around a decade or a decade and a half younger than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, probably more than a decade and a

00:03:28 --> 00:04:07

half younger than the Prophet so so again, as with all these birth dates, who keeps track of the birthdays of those times? We don't know exactly how old she was when she married the process. But most books say she was around 35 years old when she married the profits of the la vida. He was selling them now. She had been previously married in Mecca, and she became divorced and she migrated with her brother. She migrated with her brother and she had been divorced. So she is now available for marriage. She migrated with her brother to Medina. And the Prophet says Adam sent a proposal on behalf of his quote unquote, son, Zaid, because at that time, they was still his son, you understand

00:04:07 --> 00:04:48

what I'm saying? His Son, meaning the adopted son and his he was called they've been hammered up until this point in time. So he sent a proposal on behalf of date that I want you to marry Zaid, and she said, I am the widow of the chorus. I'm the most illegible Bachelorette of the kurush. And you want me to marry date? So you can sense from the beginning. She's not too happy with date, that she felt Zaid was not to her caliber that it's not going to work out and it is human nature that the woman wants a man she can respect and look up to. And this is human nature. It is ingrained in the fitrah. Right, and that is why I'm in a bit of a modern issue here. But somehow lo and a husband or

00:04:48 --> 00:04:59

when a man proposes to a woman he finds out the woman is, let's say earning more money than him or has more degrees than what happens the man feels intimidated. No, no, I can't. It's not going to work out whether it's right or wrong is besides the point

00:05:00 --> 00:05:41

Talking about human nature is human nature that it the woman wants somebody she can look up to and respect. And the man wants someone that he has well field, okay, I am the man of the household, right? I am the person who has the authority. So Xena felt that they this beneath her that he is not a real prodigy. He is not someone that is worthy of Me. And so from the beginning she kind of said it's not appropriate, but the prophets Islam insisted, and according to one interpretation, suta that Isaiah verse 33 was revealed. Because of this as soon as a verse 33 Allah subhana wa tada says in this verse will mark on any movement in one minute in either kado la hora, Zulu Amman, and you

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

will hear two men under him as soon as ever 36 excuse me, that it is not appropriate for any man or woman, once Alon is messenger have decreed something that they then follow their own opinion about this issue. And we find in the earliest books of Tafseer, that there is an interpretation, this verse was revealed because of Xena. When she and her brother said we're not going to get married to date. Her brother as well says eight is not worthy for our family. And Allah then revealed that once the messenger has made a choice, you cannot have another choice in this regard. And so when the ayah was revealed, the both of them said we are content with Zaid and Xena is well known that eventually

00:06:22 --> 00:06:48

when she did marry the Prophet salallahu it who was setting them that she was really the only competition that our Isha had in terms of muhabba in terms of love that the process of them had issues only main competition was ative and the wives of the process and were divided into two camps, the camp of Xena and the camp of Arusha, right, that you had a number of women that were in the camp of Ayesha, the number one on the camp of Xena, and

00:06:49 --> 00:07:02

the long story of sort of getting big will never be limited to how to remember halala hula or profit. Why do you make how long what Allah has made Helen? One interpretation was that this was revealed because the process of them overstayed in the house of Xena.

00:07:03 --> 00:07:43

And he became so jealous that she and helps her concocted that story that when he enters in you asked him what is that bad smell coming? And he stood and this is the honey that he was eating the type of honey from the neighbor's house. And so the both of them said there's some bad smell coming from you. So he said, Well, I am not going to ever eat a Zeno's house again, and then Allah revealed in the Quran. Yeah, you in the bulimic? Hello Lola tepidarium OData is watching. That's one interpretation that Buhari has in his side, the point being that Xena as Arusha herself says, and this hadith is a Muslim. She was the only one who competed with me in status in the eyes of the

00:07:43 --> 00:08:25

prophet SAW sort of, she was the only lady who was a genuine competition for me, meaning while I was alive, remember I had deja was another competition that was she's not in front of her. Zeynep is the only one that is in front of her and therefore, after Isha, perhaps Xena was the most beloved but obviously when he and Xena are both there, they don't know this, and the both of them are competing for one another in this regard. Despite this jealousy, he has a lot of praise for Xena. And Isha says we already mentioned in the story of the slander, that when the profitsystem asked Xena What did you think of Arusha? Zane upset Yasuda I will only speak the truth. I know nothing but good of

00:08:25 --> 00:09:06

her. And Zane and Arusha herself said that xenophobes piety saved her from saying anything, whereas her sister, and that was how men have been to judge this is in a vintage rush Hammond had been rejected was one of those who spread the rumors, right. And her sister wanted to defend Xena not defend but cause problems between Irish and the process and I'm out of a love for Xena, but Zeynep herself. She has had her tequila prevented her. She had the opportunity to backstab but she did it protocol prevented her and she didn't say anything. And Arusha herself says in another Hadeeth in another incident when she spoke about Xena after the death Hosanna Ayesha herself said, I have never

00:09:06 --> 00:09:50

seen any woman more righteous in religion than her and more fearful of Allah. And more truthful in her speech, and more caring for her relatives, and more generous with her charity, and more energizing in her efforts to come closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala except that she had a temper that would come quickly and then go away. This is a very beautiful Hadith where he praises enough in an entire paragraph that it is a Muslim, an entire paragraph. She says I've never seen a more religious lady than her. Imagine the wife of the process. I'm saying this about Xena and Xena was so warm to a woman. She was one who regularly fasted and prayed and she was well known amongst the

00:09:50 --> 00:09:59

wives of the process and for being the most generous of all of his wives. She was called the mother of the orphans and the mother of the poor. And in the famous Hadith

00:10:00 --> 00:10:35

When the wives were discussing, who will be the first wife to pass away after the prophet SAW Selim, so the process name came out and he saw them all arguing and debating, he said, the one amongst you that has the longest hand will be the first to meet me. And so for the next few years after the death of the process, and they will all line up against a wall, and they would measure their hands, they would have the hand put in who has the longest hand, eventually Xena was the first to die. They understood what the process of them said, by the longest hand, the one who spends the most, the one who spends the most because she was the one who would spend the most and so they realized what the

00:10:35 --> 00:11:15

prophet sallallahu Sallam meant, when did the process and marry Xena lots of reports. But in sha Allah insha Allah the strongest opinion is that it took place in the beginning of little cards of the fifth year of the hedgerow, the quarter of the fifth year of the Hydra. And we know this for multiple reasons. Most importantly, the verses of hijab were revealed on the night of the wedding of Zenith and the prophet SAW Selim, the verses of hijab came down before the wedding of Xena but the process of there was no hijab. So women did not wear hijab, they did not cover themselves, the way that the shediac required them to cover because there was no God revealed at that time. So when was

00:11:15 --> 00:11:27

the shady out of a job revealed the night of the wedding of Xena and the profits of the low sell them that was when I actually a job came down. And we know in other reports that the hijab came down in the corridor of the 15th of the hedgerow.

00:11:28 --> 00:12:10

We also know for a fact that the marriage took place before the slander of Russia, because Ayesha mentions Zaynab, protecting her tongue during the slander so definitely before the slander and therefore to say it occurred in the little corner of the fifth year of the hilldrup inshallah it fits in perfectly. We also know before we get to the the controversial stuff, we also know that Zainab walima was the most luxurious walima out of all of the wives of the Prophet system, that this has mentioned in all the books of Hadith that the best walima that the process team gave for any of his wives. Was that for Xena, and they asked us what was the walima he said, meat and bread until

00:12:10 --> 00:12:49

all the people were filled meat and bread, which is basically what our with him is that you I told you many times they had no rice, the process of never ate rice in his life. Rice only came to the Sahaba when they conquered the Persian and the Roman Empire. So the process never ate rice. So what was the luxury bread? The staple starch was the bread and then meat. And so he he had all the meat and all the bread which is to this day, this is what he meant Africa is right. And that was only for Xena. For most of the otherwise they were they did not have the capacity to sacrifice an animal. It was just whatever other food was available. But for Xena, he invited everyone he sent NSF pneumonic

00:12:50 --> 00:13:28

to, he gave a whole list as the wires go call aboubaker and Armando northman. And it gave a whole long list. Then he said go to the people of the sofa. Then he said go to the masjid. Then he said go into pathway that he said anybody whom you meet, call him. And so everybody came and they ate from a small dish and and it says that I thought the dish would take care of two or three, but will lie over 70 people ate from the dish and when they all finish it was still the same amount as it had in the beginning. And therefore the story of the marriage of Xena is something well known. And the way I'm going to discuss the the the story is actually do it in this matter will first discuss the verse

00:13:28 --> 00:13:47

in the Quran. Then we'll look at the books of Hadith. Then we'll look at the books of Sierra. Then we'll look at the books of Tafseer. And we'll go in chronological order. Okay, we'll look at the Koran What does the Quran have to say? Then we'll look at the books of the six books of Hadith. And then we'll look at the books of sila. And then we'll look at the books of Tafseer.

00:13:48 --> 00:14:31

And as for the verse in the Quran, the primary verse, in fact, the only verse that explicitly mentioned this is suitable as a verse 37 sunat that Isaiah verse 37. And what does the law say? And this is right after as apt 36 which is according to the majority opinion also regarding Zainab, that who no believing man or woman should ever have a say once alone is Mr. gem decided to do something. The majority interpretation this also relates to Xena, Xena has marriage to date. Now verse 37. Now you need to memorize this verse or at least the translation. What is the holy Linda he Anam Allahu alayhi wa rahmatullahi and remember when you said to the one whom Allah has blessed with Islam, and

00:14:31 --> 00:14:59

the one you have blessed by freeing him and adopting him, what is the order of the anomala while he will and I'm totally I'm sick alakazoo jack, keep your wife what tequila and fear Allah. So the process is telling Zaid, keep your wife do not divorce her and fear Allah. What to what what took Fifi Neff seeker mon la humo de and you hate it

00:15:00 --> 00:15:48

your self in your heart, that which Allah would make clear to the people. So the process is telling Zaid, keep her fear Allah do not divorce her. But as you said this to Zaid, there was something in your heart that you were hiding that which you are hiding, Allah would make it known to the people. What Tasha, not why did you hide it? You were fearful of the people you didn't want the people to speak while Allahu Dasha. But Allah has the ultimate right that he should be feared. He shouldn't have been scared of the people. And this is an ATAR This is a minor rebuke about a for profit system that why were you scared of the people you should have been scared of me not scared of the people.

00:15:49 --> 00:16:36

phylum, although they do mean high water law. Now, pause here completely irrelevant to this story will not completely irrelevant, but it is not directly relevant to the marriage. The only Sahabi ever mentioned by name is a right here in this verse ever. No Sahabi has the honor that Allah mentioned him by his name in the Koran other than zero. And this is the biggest blessing that Allah has given zaytoven Hadith, right? That Allah mentions him by his name, Allah, Allah say you don't even Abu Bakar comes a distant second compared to this, that a lot of references him with the direct pronoun, and a lot of calls him saw him, which is still good, but you can't compare to the hate.

00:16:36 --> 00:16:47

Right? And it is narrated that when the Prophet says Adam died, one of the Sahaba remarked, had Zaid been alive, we would never have chosen aboubaker over him

00:16:48 --> 00:17:23

that it was an obvious choice if they'd had been alive, that we would have chosen z to be the next or the first halifa. Right. So sades macom, unfortunately, is not known amongst many of the Muslims because he died in the eighth year of the digital right. He died as we'll talk about in a very actually very shortly, maybe two three weeks is going to come to incident of the death of eight. So they died. It was a huge tragedy. The processor was crying he was visibly grief struck. And because of this, most of us we don't understand the macom of Zaid who is eight and what is the mcommerce it Allah mentions him by name in the Quran. So when they finished off and I'm apologize to them and

00:17:23 --> 00:18:10

Juan Pablo what Allah who is an Arabic expression, which basically means divorce took place there's no need to go into linguistics is a deep meaning which no need to get into Wednesday divorced her let's just translate it like this called all Lazzara who has other meanings, but the implication Wednesday divorced her father Mercado, Zuma waterland Zola Janaka ha, we married you we married her to you, though watch NACA. Once they divorce has finalized, we marry her to you so that there is no hemorrhage there is no problem for any believer to marry the wives of their adopted sons underneath him once they have divorced them. And of course, this is when we understand one of the wisdoms

00:18:10 --> 00:18:51

behind this that nobody denies that quote unquote adoption is not the same as a biological son. And a quote unquote adopted son is never going to take the status of a real son. So the real son's wife becomes a mom. But the adopted sons wife does not become a murderer, the biological sons wife, and the biological daughters husband becomes the mother and for the parents, right? But not somebody that you have raised as an orphan, and he's not your biological son or daughter that doesn't become a model. So Allah thanks so that should there should be no problem after this, that anyone wants to marry an ex wife of the adopted son or an ex husband of the adopted daughter. Now one of them wants

00:18:51 --> 00:19:23

to marry that is something that is allowed, what kind of Allahumma flula and the last command will be done. Now the next verses are very beautiful, and they're very relevant. I'm not going to go into them into detail. I want you to read them. The next page and a half is all about praising the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the next page and a half that Allah says in the Quran, McKenna Mohammedan Abba had emetogenic Malacca Rasulullah who will hurt me and Naveen Mohammed is not the father and the Mohammed's name is mentioned and Allah only mentions his name four times in the Koran and him his name is mentioned Makana Mohammed

00:19:25 --> 00:20:00

Mohammed Salim is not the father of any of your men. Rather, he is the hot women have been heroes Rasulullah inhotim and Ambien. And then Allah says, Allah is the one who sends his Salat upon you and eventually in the same surah next page, Allah says in the law how America to use aluna the nebby Yeah, he will let the new soul do it. He was selling them with a slimmer Allahumma salli wa sallam Asad Mohammed. So the whole page and a half is a praise for the prophet SAW. Right? Therefore, this ayah is in the context actually comes at the beginning of an entire passage that the Prophet

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

Sessoms. macom is praised. And Allah says mark and Island Navy him and hydrogen FEMA follow the law. There is never any difficulty in anything that Allah has decreed for his prophet, there should be no difficulty. And this is what Allah has decreed. So this is the Quran. What do we learn from the Quran, we learn that the Prophet system told us they do not do force her, but he hid something in his heart out of a fear of the people.

00:20:28 --> 00:20:39

And that which he hid his heart Allah would tell the people or Allah would indicate what it was. This is what we learned primarily and we also learned that Allah married Zane up to the process of directly.

00:20:40 --> 00:21:07

The watch took place, Allah azza wa jal revealed it in the Quran, the nigga contract we recited to this day, this is the nikka contract, the nigga contract between Xena but the process of them it is in the Quran, so totaliser and we were excited to this date. So, let us look at the books of Hadith, the books of Hadith in Bukhari and Nativity, unnecessarily. Malik said that they came to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam complaining about zeyneb.

00:21:08 --> 00:21:39

But the prophet of Islam kept on saying to him, keep your wife don't divorce her, I'm sick, it was a joke. And I said, if the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam were to have hidden anything from the Ye, he would have hidden this verse, this highly visible hottie. If you would have kept any ayah to himself, he would have kept this is. So this is the Hadith in Bukhari. Notice, this version of Bahati does not give us any details. Honestly, it only says,

00:21:41 --> 00:22:00

Zaid came to the process of him complaining and the process and said, keep your wife that's all it says. What was he complaining? Why did the process Some say keep your wife what was he hiding? It's not mentioned. So Bukhari and Muslim don't have anything explicit about the reason what Allah is referencing that the process of them hid.

00:22:01 --> 00:22:45

We have other reports as well that don't quite mention this the reason or what the process of was hiding, but to give other details that are interesting, but they're not quite relevant to our story of them is insoluble hottie unece reports that diversity of hijab were revealed regarding Zeynep that was when Allah revealed a job. The night of Zeno's marriage, Allah revealed nothing that I attend a job. That was when I attend, hijab came down. And and I said, Xena would boast to the other wives, the woman Illa, whom in focus of a semi what Allah has married me from above the seven heavens, and another version, she would say to the other wives. As for you, your father's and your

00:22:45 --> 00:23:25

brother is married you off to the Prophet system. As for me, Allah marry me off to the Prophet system from above the seven heavens. Okay, so what is to be expected as Dana is happy, she's proud, she's boasting to the otherwise which is all isn't highlighted. We expected between co wives, she is saying, I have this honor that none of you have that Allah married me off directly from above the seven heavens in activity. We learned that our Isha says the same thing that is reported from us that our issue says, If the Prophet system were to have hidden any idea from the Quran, he would have hidden this ayah from Iran, which means this ayah is painful,

00:23:26 --> 00:23:38

which means this ayah is painful. And the Prophet system is being criticized in a way he has never been criticized. And if he were to have hid something, he would have hid this ayah.

00:23:39 --> 00:23:52

So this ayah is telling us something that is awkward for the processor to tell, but because he is honest, and he is solid, I mean, because he is Rasulullah sysm, he will reveal everything that Allah has said.

00:23:53 --> 00:24:11

And there's only one Hadeeth in the Muslim Achmed that gives us some indication. And as is to be expected, there is a controversy over its authenticity. This is how we're all going to get into the whole issue of authenticity in the Muslim

00:24:13 --> 00:24:22

world from immaculate teacher who is married from hammarby been saved from fabric from Anna's that the profitsystem came to the house of zedi benhadad.

00:24:23 --> 00:24:55

So he saw zeds wife, Zainab, in the house. Now, Mama, the shareholder, Mr. Mohammed says, I do not know whether Anna's said the next statement or whether it was interpolated by my teacher Hamad. So Hammad is the teacher of the teacher of environment. So the teacher says, I don't remember this phrase, did it come from others? Or did it come from my own teacher? I don't remember where did it come from? What was that phrase? So something entered his heart.

00:24:56 --> 00:24:59

Something entered the heart of the prophets list.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:20

firewalker vehicles be something came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So they came complaining to her about him. But the prophet system said hold on to your wife and fear Allah, I'm sick it kazuchika with tequila. And it was that when a law revealed sort of Eliza or at least this verse of sulit Eliza

00:25:21 --> 00:25:26

and we also find in the books of Sierra and also in some books of editors such as soon and unnecessary

00:25:28 --> 00:26:13

other details that are not relevant to the story that we're interested in but the relevant to the the overall surrounding details and that is when they read Xena finished the Prophet system said to date go to Zane up and mentioned my name to her. So pause here now, eventually they does end up divorcing Zane up. Okay? The process of never told him to he eventually does it anyway, he divorces Dana. And the profitsystem then tells eight go to the cleanup and mentioned my name does she if she wants to marry me or not, in the version of inside the process of them said Tuesday, I don't trust anyone more than you. So go to sign up on my behalf. And this is before hijab has been revealed. And

00:26:13 --> 00:26:27

so even though the divorce has been finalized, they can go and visit Xena because there is no hijab as of yet. There is no segregation and whatnot that has not yet been revealed. And so Zaid goes to Cena and he finds her

00:26:29 --> 00:26:44

getting the barley ready. So during the the middle, what is it called the grinding mill and just basically cleaning the barley. And they says, When I saw her, I felt shyness that the Prophet system had mentioned her name.

00:26:45 --> 00:27:27

So I turned around so that I don't see her. And I spoke to her with my back to her that Zaid is now feeling a sense of higher that the process of has mentioned Xena, and he's interested. So I feel awkward even though they had been married for at least three, three years, at least three years it had been married. But now that the processor has mentioned her now he turns his back and he speaks to her facing the wall and his back is to Xena and he says Oh, Zainab, the prophet system has mentioned you and He has sent me to you, meaning Are you interested or not. And so Zayn have said, I will not respond until I seek a loss assistance meaning prayers to heart. I will not respond until I

00:27:27 --> 00:27:38

seek Allah's assistance. And Zainab stood up to pray in her area of prayer which she had in the in the house. And at that point in time, Allah revealed the verse of

00:27:40 --> 00:28:24

the witch Naka, and the profitsystem was sitting with our issue at this time, and he became the Bush era, which means he closed his eyes and they could see that the water was coming down. And so he then recited this verse, and he sent a messenger to Xena that this is the verse that has been revealed. And he says, When I heard this verse, then there is a beautiful Arabic expression, which has no English equivalent, but she basically said, I became struck with jealousy from every angle. from every angle, I became struck with jealousy, because of what I knew of her beauty. And worse than this, because of the manner in which there's a watch took place. And that is the Quran coming

00:28:24 --> 00:29:08

down. Right? And so when the reverse came down, so the Quran has been revealed, and this is of course after the aid of zeta right after the aid of Zaid Zaid goes back and says design of the processes interested, Zainab stands up to push harder, and basically even before she finishes her is the harder is responded to by the Quran. The Quran comes down, and therefore, the prophets are seldom entered into the house of Xena without any other marriage contract without any other witnesses because it's in the Koran and the world is a witness without any worry being necessary because Allah said so what Janaka and this was the only marriage in the history of the world

00:29:08 --> 00:29:39

basically, that was legitimize directly by Allah subhana wa Taala without the need of any other method any witnesses any other Nick got nothing. Then he got his there in the Quran, zo wedge Naka and the story, Allah says that which Naka, we married you to her house, who is going to now needs to be a witness who needs to be the way that's it, end of story. Okay, so we're beginning to see some of the problems or issues arising. Now let's look at the books of zero. We turn first and foremost to evidence and

00:29:41 --> 00:29:57

even as half is something you should know about. We haven't really mentioned this before. But unfortunately, one of the biggest criticisms against evidence hoc is that he, for the most part, really ignored the wives of the processes and their stories.

00:29:58 --> 00:29:59

There's no separate section.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:44

The xojo of the Profit System, there's hardly anything just tidbits here and there, he doesn't have a separate section dedicated to the wives of the Prophet system. And therefore, there's not anything narrated and all of urbanist talk about the meaning of these verses about what the prophets of Salaam hid in his heart, nothing is mentioned it's nothing neither this nor that. So we don't have any luck with even his half. And it's not just presented, it's for most of the whys of the process, and we really don't have much coming from a business Hawk. Even sad is the next authority of the seal. And inside dice 230 digital and inside gives us a very detailed version, which I will call

00:30:44 --> 00:31:23

version a and there's only two versions version a version B. Okay? And version A is the problematic version. Version A is the version that has caused a lot of criticism. And it is found in a lot of detail in many many books. You are hearing it for the first time now from inside but as we will see it's actually mentioned in many books. What is it been sighs version? Remember, this is version eight. Inside says And when did he die to 30? Hey, Joe, we're going to do this chronologically. We're going to see who said what, at what era because this shows things as well inside said the Profit System and I'm quoting directly from him inside stuff aquatera have translated the process of

00:31:23 --> 00:31:41

went to visit Zaid but he was not home. And Zane up came to answer his knock. And this would be for a job so there's not a problem. So she came wearing her regular address, meaning she's not wearing anything extra because it's not her job. That's what she would have been wearing anyway.

00:31:42 --> 00:32:29

And said, He is not here or messenger of Allah, but come on in meaning the process of is visiting How can you like not say anything? Come on in, but he turned away and he muttered, and the only thing that she could hear was Subhana Allah and Allah subhana wa subtlely Falco loob Subhana Allah Allah, Allah subhana wa sobre Falco and was the one who changes the hearts, the hearts are changing. Zaid comes back, this is from inside. And Zainab tells him the process of visited he said Why didn't you invite him in? She said I did. He said What did he say? zeyneb said I don't know but all I could hear was Subhana Allah had Allah Subhana Masada de Falco loop. So zayde understood that perhaps the

00:32:29 --> 00:32:32

Profit System was inclined towards her.

00:32:33 --> 00:33:18

They understood that perhaps the process Zeno didn't understand. They understood by Subhana Masada from Kuru, that perhaps the process was inclined towards her. And he went through the process of an offer to divorce Xena, but the Prophet system said, I'm sick alakazoo Joker with tequila, which is in the hold on, keep your wife and fear Allah. But after this incident, all that was remaining in David's heart left, and he kept on insisting to the process of that he wanted to divorce, saying that she had a sharp tongue saying that she kept putting him down and saying this thing that so they never really got along with Xena. And so, they did not want to persist in the marriage. And he kept

00:33:18 --> 00:33:35

on asking the process of divorce and the process and kept on saying mc colloca xojo COVID tequila eventually he divorces her meaning the process of never told him to do this, but he just could not bear Zane up anymore, her tongue her sharpness whatever, he divorced her. And

00:33:37 --> 00:34:16

then when the processor was sitting without issue, the why he came upon him and he recited so little aza. Okay, so this is insides version. And this is version a and this is the version that is problematic. We understand why it is problematic. I don't need to explain, obviously, why it is problematic. It's understood why it's problematic, right? The emotions that are felt this is what is problematic, right that Dana is now married to Zaid and as the reversion very explicitly says that he inclined towards her and he said Subhana light Allah subhana wa solderable kulu Now, this is what we find in inside. Let us now look to the books of Tafseer. And we find the books of the scene will

00:34:16 --> 00:34:53

obviously concentrate on this first obviously because it's in the Quran. So every single book of Tafseer ever written in the history of Islam has a version of events correct. You understand this point? Because it's directly in the Quran. Right? And today, all of today from nine o'clock in the morning I have been in my library looking up literally 4050 books about this and that this is shallow. This research is new and novel and it is thoroughly done a shallow Tada. And I went over dozens of the facets that I'm summarizing what we went through what I went over today. One of the earliest stuff CDs in existence is that of more artistic, so a much more cartoonish romance. Here is

00:34:53 --> 00:34:59

the earliest of seed in print. More cognitivists with a man died 150 hedgerow. No buddy

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

earlier than him we have that has written that to you. Now, Mahathir bin Sulaiman. He's actually not a scholar, he's a storyteller. And he's not considered to be academically reliable. He's simply a source is simply a person who just talks about stories. He's not reliable, so we don't turn to his Tafseer. for reliability, we just turn to it to get a glimpse of what people were saying in 150. Ah, that's really what we turn it to. We don't turn to it for reliable, if you will. And so demand is not an academic scholar. He is a storyteller Of course, sauce. Right? And so we just turned to him to see what people were saying not for academic opinions, more cartons of cereal mentions version a

00:35:38 --> 00:36:18

in quite a lot of vivid detail, more details that are found other places, but it is mentioned in version eight. Right now, if more cartoon was the only person who mentioned version a, we would sell hamdulillah he's the only person and the story. But he's not the only person we just had even said, Now we have more cartoons. Now we turn to the next famous Tafseer and that is the absolute poverty of poverty died 310 and that poverty is the most orthodox the most authentic, the Encyclopedia of tissues. This is the bastion of Sunita, all of us come from poverty or poverty is the polymath is the historian is the Sierra expert. He is the Mufasa This is authority in Mohammed material poverty,

00:36:19 --> 00:36:58

die 310 Hitler, October it mentions version a as basically the only version. It's the standard version. And he mentions reports from Qatada and from Ibn Zayd and from other authorities that explicitly mentioned version a and basically support this version. He goes back with his is not to attack the who's kata kata is the student we've been abuzz, and cortada is the main Mufasa of the tablet room. And cortada died 103 100 so Qatada says, What the profitsystem hid in his heart was the desire that they divorce her.

00:36:59 --> 00:37:28

He wanted to divorce but he didn't say it. This is what he hid. And he mentioned from Urban's aid as well, who's another scholar from the top your own similar reports, and this is the standard understanding of poverty and authority is what poverty is, he is a one of the in fact frankly, he is the greatest scholar of Tafseer of the early centuries, nobody is greater than of poverty. going next in order to have seen another tip co written by a Persian Hanafi scholar by the name of summer Conde

00:37:29 --> 00:38:02

who died 375 and he wrote a book called battle loom, and he basically mentioned the same version a and the next version of cffc. Who died for 27, the same version. And then we have non Sunita sees a machete in his car shop, the same story as a machete dies 538. We have found a dino Razi, who is a famous Chinese scholar, and he has his serial COVID A Razzie die 610. He has all of this. So we have all of these mufa soon mentioning version a as if it is the standard one. Okay, what is version B, then let's get to version B.

00:38:03 --> 00:38:18

version B is not actually a specific incident. It's an interpretation. It's not a story. Version A is a story. version B is no story is simply an interpretation of the verse. And what is this interpretation? And where is the first book that mentions it? Well,

00:38:19 --> 00:38:52

the first printed book that I could find that mentions this is Albay happies della Nobu, and they happily died 458 Digital, and then they have the and I'm not saying that it doesn't exist before they happen. I'm saying in my limited library. This is all that I could come across and also online. I downloaded some books today as well. I could not come across the book that is printed that has this exact version before I'll be happy, but it is referenced before by healthy but not with this explicitness so what is this version B? version B is the following.

00:38:54 --> 00:38:56

I release a new album, who's Allison?

00:38:59 --> 00:39:00

Who is Alexandra Aberdeen?

00:39:02 --> 00:39:03


00:39:05 --> 00:39:06

saying, son,

00:39:07 --> 00:39:13

I've been in it for St. Sun. Ali's Aberdeen asks one of his students one of his peers.

00:39:14 --> 00:39:20

What does hassanal basally say about this verse? Were to Fifi nuptse como la como de

00:39:22 --> 00:39:32

What does hesson albasini say about this verse? Were to faith enough say como la moody. So this narrator says, I told him what Hudson says about the verse

00:39:34 --> 00:39:48

and from other reports, we find out that's version a he is saying, I told him this is what Hudson says. Version a. It is no Aberdeen said no, not version a no. rather

00:39:49 --> 00:39:57

a loss subhanho wa Taala had informed the prophet SAW Selim that Xena would become his wife

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


00:40:00 --> 00:40:42

That's version B. That's all version B's. Now pause here. This changes the whole dynamics, version a, what was he hiding in his heart? His inclination for Xena clear. This is what he's hiding. He wants to legitimately marry Xena. So he has an inclination towards her. So he wants to divorce but he's not gonna say it. Why is he not gonna say it? Because the people are gonna say that Oh, he did. He caused the to divorce and then he married the divorcee. Right? So this is version a, version B says the following, that Allah had told the Prophet system that Xena will become your wife.

00:40:44 --> 00:40:48

So they now comes to him and Zaid says I want to marry Xena.

00:40:49 --> 00:40:55

And the Prophet says Allah knows that eventually, Zainab will be his wife.

00:40:56 --> 00:41:10

Knowing this, he tells eight don't divorce her. Why? Because he was scared. What was he scared of? that the people will say he married the wife of his adopted son.

00:41:11 --> 00:41:13

Which is a Java No, no.

00:41:14 --> 00:41:39

Okay, you change the whole dynamics have been changed here. Okay, every single phrase has a different linkage now. Okay. What did he hide in version a? His inclination? In version B, what did he hide the fact that he knew that he would eventually marry Xena? Okay, version a, what was he scared of? that people will spread rumors. version B. What was he scared of?

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

What was he scared of?

00:41:48 --> 00:41:52

The the daily practice of marrying your

00:41:53 --> 00:42:31

adopted son was a very evil thing for them. So people say oh my god, he married the adopted his and his adopted sons ex wife. Right? This is what he was scared of that this was a criticism. That was a gigantic criticism. Okay, now, these are the version A's and the version B's. So version B chronologically, it does seem to appear after version a. Now if you look at some early tough seers, interestingly some early to see as mentioned both versions together. And most important amongst them, we have even altea in his halmahera wedges and even Althea died

00:42:33 --> 00:43:05

500 and don't quote me to 540 or so 540 something without Leah died, if an idea mentions all the version a in its entirety, and then he follows it up by mentioning version B. And then he leaves it at that these are the two versions that are found this and that Alibaba we and Alibaba is a very famous scholar of fct, he has a famous book called monomyth, Tansy and about who he died 516 Alba, who he mentioned the same version a in great detail. And he actually quotes even Abbas even Ibis is saying that what the processor hid, was a love for

00:43:06 --> 00:43:36

what to feed enough sick. What he hid was a love for Xena. But either he mentioned as saying that what the processor hid was a hope that they would divorce her. But then he brings in version B. This is a backhoe he, he brings in version B. And he quotes all of from Alabama hurricanes in Aberdeen. And then he says, and I quote from above UI, and this second interpretation, version B, is more befitting and more appropriate for them are part of the profits.

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

So the first author to say version a seems to be problematic. Is that a bumblebee?

00:43:44 --> 00:43:50

In my reading, I haven't found anybody who even found version a problematic, poverty quotes it nonscientific, nothing, no big deal.

00:43:51 --> 00:43:56

Even sad quote, all of these other authors are quoting it, Alibaba 516 says,

00:43:57 --> 00:44:06

some have said that version B is better, because it is more appropriate to the status of a profit.

00:44:07 --> 00:44:35

Now notice here by the way, why did he choose version beovision? a, not because of it's not not because of quantity of people not be simply because in content, it makes more sense that the Prophet should do version B and not version a, okay. This is the reason he prefers version B over version A, then and then his very interesting he says, even if the first story version a is correct.

00:44:36 --> 00:44:47

The other interpretation, which is that he hid for her a love and a desire to marry her, is actually not something that tarnishes the reputation of a prophet.

00:44:48 --> 00:44:58

So, Bravo, he says, I think version B is better, because that would make our life easier. But even if you insist on version a

00:45:00 --> 00:45:22

Not the end of the story. Why? Because he says, it's not actually something that tarnishes the reputation of a profit for a servant is not criticized for a desire that comes to the heart as long as he does not intend any evil, because love and inclination is not something that is in the control of men.

00:45:24 --> 00:45:33

And this is Alibaba from 516. Right at the turn of the fifth century, the turn of the sixth century. At Baba, we're saying, I like version B, because

00:45:34 --> 00:46:08

it's easier for us to swallow. But even if we insist on version a, it's not a big deal, because it's only an inclination of the heart. So we find here a shift now that version B seems to be getting a little bit of traction. And then as we go on and on version B seems to take more and more role until version a is actually ignored, and completely set aside and then castigated and then criticized and then, as we will see, even more bizarre things are said about it. The next FC is of no Josie is Zelma CW Josie died 597.

00:46:10 --> 00:46:50

A Nebula Josie says there are four opinions about what the profitsystem hid for opinions. Number one, his love for Xena narrated by Ibis number two, a promise from a law that he would eventually marry her as narrated by Xena IBT in this version a and version B. What is three and four? It's actually version a as well. Number three, I wish that zayde would divorce her and this is what cortada and mgh and MacArthur said, number four, the intention that if they divorced her, he would marry her. And this is what has been reported from urban z. In other words, if you look at it, these four opinions, he mentions, one, two, sorry, one, three, and four are all version a.

00:46:51 --> 00:47:33

one, three, and four are all version a, and then only two is version B. Right? So he says, This is what has been married, what did he hide, a love for her hoping that they would divorce? Well, that's the same thing. Or if they divorced our marriage, again, it's the same thing, right? version two is only mentioned once and that is that Allah had told her he would marry Xena. And he then says, Some scholars have said that it is not possible that the Prophet system was inclined towards her and one today to divorce her this isn't who is speaking out ignore Josie, you must have heard the name of Josie, the famous scholar, very famous scholar of seed and Hadith and film is very famous scholar of

00:47:34 --> 00:48:14

the Hannah Bella his of the humbling method. And he's well known for his most famous book is LBC police and also he wrote suffer to suffer and they have actually both been translated to or to do on some of them even to English very famous scholar. So even though Josie says some scholars have said that it is not possible that the Prophet system was inclined towards her and he wanted to divorce her, even though this is what is commonly found in the books of Tafseer. So he admits Look, this is the predominant interpretation. But this story has been found problematic. Rather, these scholars have said that he was criticized in this incident for concealing the fact that eventually she would

00:48:14 --> 00:48:57

become his wife. And that it is also said that he felt out of a concern for her that if they would divorce her, he would marry her to fulfill the ties of kinship since she was his cousin. In other words, even though Josie removes the love factor completely removes the inclination factor. And he says he wanted to marry her to take care of her because she's his cousin. But he doesn't actually quote an authority. He simply says, This is better really, for he is a modified version B basically. Right? Same goes with a quote today. And the famous underneath is called quote to be in 671 that he mentioned version a in a very explicit detail, then he follows it up with version B. And then he

00:48:57 --> 00:49:04

says our scholars have said that this is the better interpretation of the verse, and it is this interpretation that the critical researchers have approved.

00:49:06 --> 00:49:30

So we notice here that in the first three, four centuries, it's only version A that is predominant. version B is found. In the fourth fifth centuries version A and B are both mentioned. But then some people began to say version B is better let's just ignore version a. Then in the sixth seventh eighth centuries, version a is basically never mentioned anymore. And the best example for this is even

00:49:32 --> 00:49:59

after him even hedger. Even Katia died 774 even Hydra died 852. So we see now an evolution taking place. And what happens is the later scholars for example, even kathira says, and even hairdressers, the basically the exact same thing when they talk about this verse, they say some of the earlier books have reports that we would rather not mention, literally, we would rather not mention them. Some of the earliest books of the theater have reports

00:50:00 --> 00:50:41

We want to just cross them out. not that important hats off to says, We don't want to waste our time talking about them, they are just not authentic. Not even mentioning what it is. Not it's not even a mention is simply only version B as mentioned. And there's no mention at all the version a, in fact, we don't want to mention it. So even had you never mentioned it. Even Kathy does not have anything, he simply says, We will not mention anything of this, we're just going to cross it out. And then what happened as a result of this was that later scholars, they actually began to say that these other versions are fabrications. And many modern scholars who are not experts in Tafseer, or Hadith,

00:50:41 --> 00:51:08

but they're famous amongst the masses, they want even more bizarre, and they said that this version A is a fabrication by evil orientalists that have corrupted our books. And I've introduced it, you know, to bring down upon the character of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and frankly, you know, that type of conspiracy theories and whatnot, we simply have to reject interesting left, I actually found Eben Pagan, and we don't know who he is,

00:51:10 --> 00:51:20

in his book adapt with Dawa, which is a really interesting book, by the way, just a footnote here, adopt what the what somebody wrote in Nakayama letter.

00:51:21 --> 00:51:40

And the letter is ambiguous that he's suffering from a problem. And he doesn't mention what is the problem, and the whole adult with the word, which means the disease and the cure for the disease. That's what it means adapt. What the What is the disease? The what is the cure for the disease? What is this problem? It's actually

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

the problem is,

00:51:44 --> 00:52:27

okay, and because of how many problems arise in this world, right? Most of the problems of this world go back to Okay, so this young man writes him a letter that I'm suffering from, as I mentioned the problem but it's understood, he's completely arshak with a virtue. Okay? And he is saying, I don't know what to do when I need help and this and that. So even though Kalyan writes a beautiful book, adult widower, beautiful, it's worth its weight in school and gold. And it's all about how to cure the problems of of basically a ship in this regard. And he has entire chapters dedicated to martial arts about a goal. And he has a whole chapter about the dangers of fish.

00:52:28 --> 00:52:28


00:52:29 --> 00:52:31

Some of you guys need to read these chapters.

00:52:34 --> 00:52:36

Hockey, hockey, hockey.

00:52:39 --> 00:52:48

You want to start about there's much that can be said, but I will keep that side hidden. Don't worry. There's a beautiful line of poetry. Hello, as you open the one out of me. There's a beautiful line of poetry.

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

What is it begin?

00:52:54 --> 00:52:56

At Armani, Wash, wash. Puna.

00:52:57 --> 00:53:29

The gossip mongers have accused me of loving her. The gossip mongers have accused me of loving her. And I say to them, that is a sin I will never repent from that humbleness to men who are tubal. Okay, so much can be said about Ashkan mashu. Here we have no problem writing a book that would go up he has it. He has a chapter called the dangers of vanish after this right at the end of the book. He has the permissibility of certain types of issues.

00:53:30 --> 00:53:38

Now not all issues head on, obviously. Right. So marriage is good. So marriage because Hello, marriage is necessary for a happy married life. Is that not the case?

00:53:39 --> 00:54:09

What you guys didn't think of marriage integration. Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola, Priscilla villa. When I mentioned marriage, you laugh when I mentioned HQ. Imagination goes elsewhere. I hope your wives are not sitting here. Okay. Mr. nakaya mentions certain types of issues are good. They're Hello. They're encouraged. Correct. Right. And he mentions stories from the seller from the Sahaba of Helen. Okay. And of what he mentions is the story

00:54:11 --> 00:54:12

very interesting.

00:54:13 --> 00:54:29

him mentions a sanitized version a, that the Prophet system saw Xena and then they divorced her and then Allah married Zane up to the Prophet system. Okay, so it's interesting that even OPM seems to find no problem

00:54:30 --> 00:54:40

with this version of events. Now. Let's summarize some of the pros and cons of version a and version B. That summarize some of the pros and cons. Version a.

00:54:42 --> 00:54:43

In terms of

00:54:44 --> 00:54:49

the text of the Quran, Wi Fi fi NFC como la humo de

00:54:50 --> 00:54:59

in terms of concealment, it makes more logical sense. That what the profitsystem is hiding is not a sin, but it's something embarrassing.

00:55:00 --> 00:55:49

Notice is not a sin. Allah did not say you have to seek refuge, you made a mistake. There's no, there is no them that the process of them did. But the context of the verse seems to suggest it's something embarrassing, but it's not sinful. And hence the reports from Anis an issue and others and has an adversity if the profits are some word to have concealed and if he would have concealed this, it makes sense version a correct. Version a makes sense in that regard in terms of the sheer quantity of early authorities, in terms of authority, and inside and all of these others Qatada and what not even a bus. It does seem to have been the standard interpretation of early early Islam.

00:55:50 --> 00:56:26

Now, some have said, Oh, some of these reports are weakness not. And this is true, some of them are. But firstly, even if one or two art, the sheer quantity of all different variations found in all different books, really, it's not that difficult to say the gist of the story could be deemed to be authentic. Secondly, the same is not the go back to Katahdin, even Abbas and ebensburg and whatnot in a poverty associate, for example, these are the same, it's not the poverty users throughout his whole life. So if you want it to be that picky, then you have rejected basically 80% of poverty.

00:56:27 --> 00:56:34

So this is something to keep into account. Also, there is another point that is raised. version B says that,

00:56:35 --> 00:56:37

what was it the processor was hiding? Who could remind me

00:56:39 --> 00:56:45

that he was informed that he would eventually marry Xena, okay? If he knows he will eventually marry Xena.

00:56:47 --> 00:57:30

Why delay it? I mean, if you know it's going to happen, and you believe Allah has told you is going to happen. It doesn't make sense that you're just gonna say, keep your wife, you know, you're not going to deny her the correct I mean, if Allah has decreed it, you know, it's not going to be you cannot get out of it, none of us is going to say this. So it doesn't make any logical sense that if the process isn't new, that eventually is going to Mary's enough, that he just delays the delays and delays it. To what extent to what point in fact, if we look at the seal of the process of that type of courage and bravery, he had it all the time, on the story of the incident of Israeli marriage,

00:57:30 --> 00:58:12

the next morning, he wakes up, and he knows he has to tell the people, right, we talked about that story. And he told them despite whatever the the the reality might be, right? So the fact of the matter is version a, the process of them is embarrassed about a human emotion. version B, it's as if he is trying to deny a loss other stuff at all, I think about it. Think about the difference. Version a is actually acceptable, human emotion, you're embarrassed, version B, you're trying to outwit other, or some of this or something like delay further. And that's not who's gonna say that it's not going to be possible. So that's the pros of version a, what's the corner version? What's

00:58:12 --> 00:58:16

the negative version? A obviously one thing and that is?

00:58:21 --> 00:58:32

So the the well, then we can say the one thing is, what is the what is the real problem about version a here?

00:58:33 --> 00:58:40

It creates a stigma of our profit system, and his inclinations, this is the real problem. Okay?

00:58:46 --> 00:58:48

Why is that problematic?

00:58:49 --> 00:58:57

It's actually not problematic at all, because he's clearing up any air, any problem was completely sending the very ex husband

00:59:06 --> 00:59:52

will talk about this in the pros and cons of version B, A, version B. Okay, the real con right now a version a is obviously the problematization of the inclinations of the Prophet system, many of us and that's what the majority of the later scholars have found problematic, as about who he explicitly says, is not appropriate for the most common Nebraska. Right? This is the standard feeling that most latest callers have had and that's perfectly legitimate. Okay, version B. Those who support version B. They have some solid evidences as well. of them. One of you mentioned, it's not as if you had never seen Cena before. Zeno's his cousin has grown up with her.

00:59:54 --> 01:00:00

It's not as if all of a sudden he's senior for the first time. So they would say version

01:00:00 --> 01:00:26

He does not make sense that instantaneously an inclination begins, after all, the verses of hijab were not revealed until after the marriage by unanimous consensus. So there is no hijab before this point in time. Also, as you yourself said, he, in fact proposed to her on behalf of Zaid, and if he had been interested, he would have proposed directly to her from day one.

01:00:27 --> 01:00:35

And Alberto, he mentioned an interesting point here as well. This is a really deep point here. So think about this. Above all, we says,

01:00:36 --> 01:00:46

Allah says in the Quran, Fifi Neff Sica Mullah, whom will be de you hit in your heart, that which Allah would make open

01:00:47 --> 01:00:50

Ababa we says, What did Allah make open?

01:00:52 --> 01:00:55

The wedge NACA, which is in the Quran,

01:00:57 --> 01:00:58

we married you to her.

01:00:59 --> 01:01:04

So, version B is supported by the text of the Quran.

01:01:05 --> 01:01:23

In that what did Allah say? Allah did not explicitly say you were inclined towards her, correct it's not in the Quran. Well, if enough Sega malaco movie do you hit in your heart that which Allah would make open Ababa we says, What did Allah make open?

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

The fact that zeyneb has married you, xo watch Naka.

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

And so he says this shows us that version B is more Well, of course, version a version B, I am saying this, you understand, he simply says this is the Why is more more weight than the other rewire. Now, which version is correct, and the end of the day, it will lie Allah knows best. And

01:01:47 --> 01:02:34

I agree with ababu his final analysis, the final analysis, which is even if version eight is correct, it doesn't mean any sin was committed. A man is not accountable for emotions as long as he does not act upon them. And the story does not have any sin in it at all. And that is why even in the Quran, there is no command to repent, or that he has done a mistake. Rather, you were embarrassed at something and it was more appropriate that you should have feared Allah subhanho wa Taala. So both versions are there, whoever wishes and what I do not agree to is this claim by especially later people in our times that version A is a fabrication that the non Muslims and are

01:02:34 --> 01:03:14

the evil heretics have put into our books. This is honestly, you know, it doesn't behoove us It sounds. You know, we love conspiracy theories. This is a problem with the Muslim Ummah, we love conspiracy theories, blame it on this and blame it on that and no, version A is a part of our tradition is clearly mentioned by most if not all of the early scholars, this is the reality, right? version B is also referenced, it's there. Eventually version B becomes the standard. Okay? Now whoever says version a, let him follow about who I am and others. And that's not a problem. That Okay, what happened in and of itself is not sinful. And our profits are the law. Why do you send

01:03:14 --> 01:03:30

them now this really goes back to how we view our processes that do Is there any problem in viewing him as a normal man with normal inclinations? In fact, there are plenty of references in the Sierra that clearly indicate this.

01:03:31 --> 01:03:45

And of them is the marriage with Julia, if you remember Julia, great that when Julia came to ask for her people, she said as soon as I saw her, I hated her.

01:03:47 --> 01:04:24

Cuz I knew what the Profit System was, you know, this hadith is authentic reported, and all the books have you know, they, I hated her because I knew the process would see it or what I see. And he would think exactly what I'm thinking. Right? And that's exactly what happened there when Julia came. And Julia said, I am the son of I'm the daughter of the chieftain I am the bit of food and food and I am I am I am, she's arguing to free her people. So the process of said, Why don't I free you and marry you? And in fact, two people were freed at that marriage, we will talk about this right? Right. But what did I say? That I knew the processor would see in her what I saw in her.

01:04:25 --> 01:04:34

And in my humble opinion, I think a prophet that is human is a prophet that I can actually relate to and look up to.

01:04:36 --> 01:05:00

Whereas when you make the Prophet into this semi mystical figure, who is above humanity, so parallel, what is wrong with a prophet that has normal male inclinations, but can control them? That is perfection. That is perfection, that he never wants a little I set him did anything wrong, despite having the same inclination as me and you have to me that is the role model. When you

01:05:00 --> 01:05:18

Take the profit into an angel that does not have any inclination, then where is the role model for us? You see what I'm saying here, right? And even in this version, if you were to say version eight, which the majority of early scholars said, honestly, what is there that is problematic? It is possible that

01:05:20 --> 01:05:56

inclinations come later on in life, it is possible, but what did the processes when he turned away, and he said, Subhana, Allah Subhana, Allah, Allah subhana wa kaliber Kuru and he kept it. And that is exactly what you're supposed to do, right? It's exactly what you're supposed to do. And it so happened that they'd never liked in the first and it was vice versa. And now this is an excuse for is a palace and hamdulillah it's presented as a burden off, he doesn't want such a wife, because she was harsh to him. She did have a sharp tongue, she did consider herself to be you know, not appropriate for z from day one. So Zaid says perfect opportunity. Yes, well, let me divorce let me

01:05:56 --> 01:06:03

divorce let me divorce her and the process of is embarrassed and what took the funeral siccola Home of the keeper I'm sick it because

01:06:04 --> 01:06:42

until finally his aid cannot take it anymore without the process of telling him he still divorces her. Once it is done. Now she is a free lady without any husband. Why not? Why should the Why should not the process and marry her so he sends the marriage the proposal and then Zeynep herself doesn't just jump for joy. Sanam said Let me press too hard. Let me think. And as she is praying, Allah reveals in the Quran was though which NACA and issue says even a bus as a hustler Bosley says, if the process of work to have hidden any verse in the Quran, it would have been this one. It is in the end of the day, awkward, but it's not how long is not sinful? Well, not every man is embarrassed

01:06:42 --> 01:07:22

when he might have inclinations for a woman. That is, you know, it's human nature, we're all going to be embarrassed, but it's not how long if it is controlled. So bottom line, version a, it's there, whoever follows it, that's fine. version B is also there, whoever follows it, that is also fine. And just a quick side point, some scholars have tried to merge the two versions together and bring forth another story. And whoever does this as well, inshallah, that too is fine. Unless you just conclude with the story of Xena that Zeynep continued to live a life of piety, a life of taqwa, she was well known for taking care of the orphans, she was called Omen Misaki the the mother of the poor, the

01:07:22 --> 01:07:24

mother of the the orphans. And

01:07:25 --> 01:07:36

we already mentioned that the processor said that the first one to that will be the one with the longest hand. So when the the processor then passed away, and Romo began sending

01:07:37 --> 01:07:39

our thought and our thought was,

01:07:40 --> 01:07:55

so let me explain to you now, rumor will work worker Norma has a different policy aboubaker would give a stipend to everybody. in Medina, exactly equal. Everybody got the same amount of money. It's a salary from the government for being who they are.

01:07:56 --> 01:07:59

Or Omar said, No, I'm going to make a

01:08:00 --> 01:08:13

list to criterion category abcdefg, you had a whole list of people, right? And the highest category were the wives of the process of them. And then the earliest converts,

01:08:14 --> 01:08:37

and then the middle converts and then the late converts and then the conquest of Makkah converts which are the last category for Tameka, right, that was the last category. So the number one category or the whys of the process from they get the biggest amount and that amount was 12,000 Durham's, that is a fortune 12,000 Durham's would be sent annually and

01:08:38 --> 01:09:20

Xena was given this 12,000 and it was poured in front of her cold coins all the way up. And she kept on saying the holder aku Sevilla Subhana Allah Allah Aleem, you know, may Allah protect us from Fitton and she kept on looking at this money. And as the money is in front of her, she gave this much to her servants that go to the household so and so then she gave this much go to the house or so and so and she kept on doing this until Not a single penny was left the whole 12,000 imagine 12,000 coins, one by one by one by one. She did not go to sleep until she had nothing left. Omar heard of this. And she said and he said what a lady This is and he visited her house, knocked on the

01:09:20 --> 01:09:25

door and said I heard what you did to the money. Here is another 1000 for you.

01:09:26 --> 01:09:29

And what do you think she did with that? 1000

01:09:30 --> 01:09:31

all give it away.

01:09:32 --> 01:10:00

And she made a dua to Allah Oh Allah let me not see this money again next year. because money is a fitna will love your brothers and sisters money is a fitna money is a fitna Imagine if somebody gave you a million dollars right now what would you do with that? Right? Thank Allah that Allah is not testing you with that type of wealth that is beyond your your control. Right? Money is a fitna and so she said, Oh Allah, let me not see this money again. And so she passed away before her salary came over the next year.

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

We're right there whenever Omar decided to do it, so she passed away the next year, and she passed away in the 20th year of the hijra, the first wife of the process to pass away. And Omar was the one who prayed her janaza prayer for her, and all of the major Sahaba walk to Berkeley A lot of times, and she was the first of the wives of the processes be buried. And all of the whys of the process are buried in that same place. And the first of them Zeynep is right there. She is the first wife of the processing to be buried in that place. And Xena was known as being so warm and cold warmer, and someone who was as Arusha herself said, I never saw a woman, more importantly than her, this is our

01:10:38 --> 01:11:15

issue saying, right? So will law he, she deserved to be our mother of the believers, she deserved to be the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and whatever story you follow version a version B, both of them are valid, there's nothing wrong with either of them. And the fact of the matter is, when you have an evil heart, you can take the most innocent story and make it the worst story. And when you have a pure heart, then innocent stories will remain innocent. You don't, you know, the the the the squat the the non Muslims who want to disparage the process of them. They don't need Zain of story, they can do it from any incident. And we have seen this enough. So those

01:11:15 --> 01:11:40

who believe in the process of them, and we are all in the shell of them, we don't have any problem, in my opinion with either version of events, right. And those who don't believe in him will lie, they have bigger problems to worry about than this and that version. And in the end, Xena is our mother, she's the mother of the believers, and she deserves all of the praise that Allah subhanaw taala has given her. And with that we conclude if there any questions about this shallow tallies.

01:12:03 --> 01:12:09

There's nothing wrong when a scholar says that I don't think this is appropriate for the macom of the processor.

01:12:10 --> 01:12:20

As long as he bases this on legitimate concerns, and I think it is a legitimate concern, if you wish to consider the profit system to be above human desires.

01:12:22 --> 01:12:56

This is the point here that if you want to make the process and to be some type of superhuman, and many of the scholars did, and I have mentioned there is this tension to this day in Islam, to this day, there is this tension, that is the prophets are more of a mystical figure, or is he an actual Bashar, you know that in their mind of mythical calm, you know, born of human parents live, you know, to this day, there are groups in our own home country, they believe the process of his new lie, right? They believe he is newer from Allah subhanho wa Taala, that he's not a human, that he doesn't eat and drink that he doesn't cast a shadow that he doesn't do this, that he doesn't do that

01:12:56 --> 01:13:30

you know this right. And that is one manifestation of that tension. And on the opposite side, you have those who don't consider the processes to be fully a profit and they have time or they criticize them a common number and the middle path is in Nima and Abdulahi rasuluh. I am ABD and I am going to soon he mentioned the two things that I am both Abdullah II and I'm Rasulullah so it depends on how you interpret it. I don't see those scholars who said it have a legitimate way but I don't see a problem in versioning Allah knows best. Yes.

01:13:34 --> 01:13:59

Believe me, I tried my best to look up I did searches I didn't find anything that had been Tamia has on Zenith and I'm still looking, I spent and I'm not sort of bragging or boasting I spent all of today from the morning up until right now doing this research. And I wish I could spend more time this is deserving of a much longer research. But I did my best to find what had been Timmy had to say and I was not able to do that. Okay, yes.

01:14:16 --> 01:14:22

No, this is not the case. enjoyed his example is the best clear cut example

01:14:24 --> 01:14:27

that he saw God and he proposed to her right then and there.

01:14:29 --> 01:14:35

Obviously, Allah azza wa jal approved of it but not that it first came down the two month marriage idea.

01:14:36 --> 01:14:38

Okay. Yes. Good.

01:14:55 --> 01:14:56

Manisha Yes.

01:15:12 --> 01:15:12

Yeah, so

01:15:13 --> 01:15:46

Dr. Pillai points out that insert a HAZOP. And the next page a lot clearly says that it is possible the love that the process has in his heart will defer that to the human tissue and who knows to really come into sharp woman, the woman is delighted women as a fellow junior high tech, right? That whatever the process of had in his heart, there is no sin upon that. And even the process of himself said that, Oh Allah, this is my costume that I'm doing, you know, as much as I can, but what is in my heart? Do not hold me to account for that. And this is the reality of this. The Quran itself explain this. Yes.

01:15:58 --> 01:16:01

I don't have any disagreement, but that that's what we're all saying.

01:16:06 --> 01:16:08

I am not to those people. So

01:16:09 --> 01:16:10

let's go ahead.

01:16:18 --> 01:16:26

So the question is, did they disobey the Profit System? So here we have when the Profit System is acting like a shaffir,

01:16:28 --> 01:16:42

like an intercessor, then it's not something that is wired up for the person to accept. And this is understood from the hadith of Madeira, the hadith of burrito that had a burrito burrito was a

01:16:43 --> 01:16:57

slave lady. At the time of the process and who was married to another slave slave can marry a slave. Now burrito was freed by Ayesha burrito was freed by Asia. And

01:16:59 --> 01:17:13

when she was freed, she now has the choice to remain married or to just get rid of her husband. She has the choice now. Okay, so buddy IRA decided to get rid of her husband.

01:17:15 --> 01:17:26

And her husband loved her again Mashallah. Her husband loved her deep love. And he began begging and pleading with her that please take me back.

01:17:27 --> 01:17:34

We'll work it out. Don't worry, honey, we'll work it out. You know that type. And he was following her in the streets of Medina.

01:17:36 --> 01:17:37

Crying and begging her

01:17:39 --> 01:17:45

and she doing only what a woman can do. Not even glancing at him.

01:17:47 --> 01:18:03

And so the profitsystem said to his uncle abass that Oh, Ibis. Aren't you amazed at how much malayala was her husband's name? Malia loves buddy era, and how much buddy are hates Movil?

01:18:04 --> 01:18:16

Aren't you amazed that this marriage that was there for so long that as soon as you could get out Hello, us. Right? And so she says to buddy, he says to belittle the process of them. Oh, buddy. Uh, why don't you take him back?

01:18:17 --> 01:18:24

The guy is crying his eyes out. Just take him back. Have some mercy. Buddy Ross says attack Moroni rasulillah

01:18:25 --> 01:18:29

are you commanding me to take him back somehow Look at her email

01:18:30 --> 01:18:34

or you command me that I'll take it then he said law in a nutshell here.

01:18:35 --> 01:18:38

No, I'm just tried to bring about reconciliation.

01:18:39 --> 01:18:45

So then she said with the scorn only a woman can possibly muster fella hedge attorney fee.

01:18:46 --> 01:18:52

I have no need of him. Call us. So we have over here buddy IRAs.

01:18:54 --> 01:19:15

Understanding that the Prophet system in this type of matter, she's not. He's not commanding her. This is just shaffir this is just like trying to reconcile. Okay, so there is no issue here. That eventually the marriage is not working out that eventually the divorce takes place. Okay. Final question. Sisters. You have no questions in this round two.

01:19:17 --> 01:19:29

This is again shaffir. This is the same as that why don't you take him back? The same thing here. Okay, no question from the sisters. I take it too controversial for them. Okay. Back to you have

01:19:30 --> 01:19:33

the same question. Okay. With that

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi goes on to discuss the pointers regarding the marriage of the Prophet ﷺ to Zainab RA and what was the importance of this event.

Zainab or Bara was a Qurayshi from the tribe of Banu Khuzayma whose mother was Umaima bint Abdul Muttalib. The Prophet ﷺ sent a proposal to her for his  ‘adopted son’ Zaid Ibn Harithah RA who was called Zaid ibn Muhammad. But Zainab RA rejected this proposal initially claiming lack of calibre and status of the groom. But after the revelation of the verse in Surah Ahzab, she agreed.

When did the Prophet ﷺ marry Zainab? The marriage was a luxurious affair and it was the best till date. The speciality and the greatness of this marriage is illustrated in various Hadith. In Bukhari, Anas RA said “the verse of hijab were revealed regarding Zainab’s marriage. And Zainab would boast to the other wives ‘Allah has married me from above the seven heaven’.” In another version she would say “as for you, your fathers and brothers married you off to the Prophet ﷺ, as for me Allah married me to the Prophet ﷺ”.  What is the story behind this? Shaykh Yasir Qadhi elaborates further.

There are 2 main versions to the story of the marriage of the Prophet ﷺ to Zainab RA and both versions have been explicitly explained also citing the pros and cons of each. Do listen intently to fully comprehend this event .

Zainab RA was called the mother of the orphans and poor and rightly so as she never ran behind money and lived a life of piety and simplicity. She considered money to be a Fitnah. In 20 H, she became the first wife of the Prophet ﷺ to expire. Umar RA prayed her janaza.
