smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina, Muhammad, WA. Germaine,

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

today's Sierra is going to be a bit of a tangent, we have to catch up with

00:00:34 --> 00:01:09

issues in the life of the Prophet system that we have overlooked. Remember, we're talking about the Battle of two booth for five episodes, we talked about the delegations, and the delegations spend three and a half to four years, right? went over all the delegation. So there are things happening in the life of the Prophet system that we kind of overlooked. So today, and maybe even the next era, I will shed some light on these incidents. And in order to do so I'm going to have to once again go non chronological, because as we already noticed, if I did the delegations non chronologically, if I did the delegations chronologically, it would have been too much. Every time I mentioned

00:01:09 --> 00:01:23

delegations, rather boring weather, if you lump them all together, it actually makes sense, right? So today, we're also going to do one particular issue, but it's going to span the course of around two and a half years. And

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

it is these two and a half years, the eighth, the ninth and the 10th year of the hedgerow. And I wanted to begin by talking about the death of the son of the prophets of the law, why do you send them and that is, of course, Abraham. Okay. But in order to talk about Abraham, we need to talk about

00:01:42 --> 00:02:24

Maria. And of course, the topic of Madea is a very sensitive one. Nonetheless, I would rather you hear these things from me, then to be exposed by people who do not believe in Allah and His messenger. And I would rather we discuss them, frankly, in the confines of an Islamic ethos and environment before other people misinterpret. And and, and I mean, the fact of the matter is that these topics sometimes are glossed over in modern theater books, right? Most modern authors, just gloss over them, they don't really delve too deep into them. Maybe in a pre internet world would have made sense. But not anymore. Not anymore at all. There's no point hiding information or

00:02:24 --> 00:02:50

pretending it doesn't exist, because you're not going to get anywhere. And I will tell you from my own experiences as being a dairy, a lot of times our young brothers and sisters contact me. And they've heard of a verse of the Quran, or Hadith or something that they've never been taught in Sunday school. And this causes them doubt about Islam. And this isn't like people lying about the tradition. This is things found in our tradition that

00:02:51 --> 00:03:28

are simply glossed over. And when this young man or this young woman hears it for the first time, he's like, I can't believe this is true. This can't be true. Tell me it's not to the hideous isn't it? Let's say tell me it's not true. Sorry, man. I can't tell you it's not true, it is true. But the problem comes that we assume there's going to be the sheltered lifestyle right, not in accordance with the teachings of you know, our tradition. And so, therefore, these types of issues come about So, because of this, I felt that it is imperative that I talk about it from within an Islamic framework as much as possible. And in the end, it is not my job or anybody's job to distort what

00:03:28 --> 00:03:44

happened. It is my job to convey and teach and if people like it, they like it, if people do not like it, that is not a rejection of me. It is a rejection of a large budget and His Messenger so Madea Her name was Madea Binti Sharon, and

00:03:45 --> 00:04:18

Maria was gifted to the prophet SAW sent him by jewboy, even Mina. That's the name given in the books of Sierra, Sierra joy, even meaner and joy was the maracas of Egypt. What is the mo caucus? democracy is a title, just like the Caesar, just like the kisara. It's a title. And it was given to the patriarch of Egypt. Now the books of Sierra typically say this is the ruler of Egypt. But this is simply incorrect because Egypt at the time was not independent. Egypt at the time was under

00:04:21 --> 00:05:00

Byzantine rule the Roman Empire. So technically, it is not correct. This is not an independent kingdom. Rather, this is a government appointed. This is a person appointed by Rome. He might have been Egyptian, maybe. But he was not a king. He was a patriarch, appointed by the Roman Empire. And of course, back then they appointed religious people, because remember, there was no separation of church and state back in those days that they're appointing religious people. So they're appointing a a patriarch, and it looks like this patriarch. If you look at the books of history, is Cyrus available

00:05:00 --> 00:05:45

xandria right, Cyrus has been changed to jewelry. So Cyrus was his actual Latin name. And then the aerobicized version is Judy Cyrus of Alexandria. And because the Muslims conquered Egypt within 20 years, it just turned out that this was the final Byzantine prefect was the title prefect over Egypt. And this Cyrus he was a melkite Christian and the mela kites were. There were no Catholics or Protestants at the time we're talking about 620 610. See, this is pre Catholic and pre Protestant. And they had other they had historians, they had mela kites, they had Maronites and others, so the mela kites become Greek Orthodox, and Roman orthodox, sorry, Roman Catholic. So this is pre Roman

00:05:45 --> 00:06:28

Catholic. And to this day, the Greek Orthodox Church admires this person Cyrus, the Greek Orthodox, is somewhat similar to that tradition. And so they admire this person, Cyrus, so the process of them sent him a letter to Islam. And this letter is probably around the eighth year of the hedgerow, we talked about him sending letters to so many different people. We have no reports from Egypt, about him receiving the letter and what his response was. Unlike the Caesar, we know what his response was in Rome. We have absolutely no reports. However, it is not too far fetched to assume that he recognized the process as being true. And that is why he was so polite to him. We don't know this

00:06:28 --> 00:07:08

for a fact. But it is an assumption to be made that neither did he tear the letter up, nor did he reject, nor did he ridicule, rather, he gifted expensive gifts, he gave a mini fortune, and he wrote back a very polite letter to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and therefore, it's not too much of a stretch to make an assumption that this man and he was a patriarch, which means he was a an elder in the church. And he is well known. He actually is a well known theologian, Cyrus of Alexandria is well known in the Greek Byzantine church as being an island if you like, right from their perspective, he wrote books, he wrote about Jesus Christ, and you know, the nature of Jesus

00:07:08 --> 00:07:50

Christ, he has this theories, which is a very important topic for for Christians. How do you reconcile the nature of the Divine with the nature of the human, the point being, he's not a giant, he's an island from their tradition. And he responds with a lot of kindness and dignity. Perhaps he recognizes, but as is typical, he doesn't want to convert. And so what does he do? He sends a mini fortune, he sends 1000 mithali of gold, like 1000 samples of gold, that's a fortune. And he sends many fine garments. And he sends a donkey that was called dual dual. And this is the the process of took this donkey and this is the famous dual dual that was gifted to him from Egypt. And he sent a

00:07:50 --> 00:08:21

servant by the name of board, so a servant by the board, he sent honey, and he sent him many other gifts. And amongst those gifts were two sister slave girls by the name of Madea and CD in Maria and CD. And these two girls were, of course, Christians. And some later books, they mentioned that these girls were gifted to the church by their nobleman, fathers. Now they had a custom the church, and we know this, even from the story of

00:08:22 --> 00:09:03

medium, and zekeriya, right, they had this, this custom of gifting to the church. And so the patriarch, basically, now has control over this. And so the patriarch, this Cyrus, he gives these two, and it is mentioned that these were doctors of a noble family, but now of course, they are the slaves of the church, right, because they're gifted to the church. And so the patriarch gifts, these two to the Prophet salallahu it he was setting them and the books of Sierra that do mention these things. They mentioned that these two obviously, young ladies were exceedingly beautiful, and because they were two sisters, and you cannot have two sisters at one time, so the process of them

00:09:03 --> 00:09:53

gifted serien to his son, Evan sabet, the poet, so his son had been fat and they had a child by the name of Abdul Rahman, even Hassan even sabot and he kept Maria for himself. And inside mentioned that when the processing and received the letter from Oh, Chris from Cyrus, it was a polite letter, all of these gifts. So he said, The hubby's this evil person has managed to preserve his kingdom by being polite to me, but his kingdom will not last This is the last of his kingdom, which means that he will be the last of his dynasty, but because he was polite to me, he will not be harmed in this world. So he dies a natural death and, of course is a prediction he becomes the last prefect because

00:09:53 --> 00:09:59

I live in a house conquers Egypt. Okay, so this was a type of prediction for the Prophet salallahu it

00:10:00 --> 00:10:36

He will sell them. Now, of course, the difficult issue for today is, of course, the whole concept of gifting media and seeding. And the fact of the matter is that in the culture that we have been raised in, and I am a part of this culture like everybody else, this is a topic that is simply impossible to talk about without some type of bias. And the fact of the matter is that we are all biased in one direction. And that is, we believe the process and to be a profit, that is a legitimate bias is not a bad bias, right. And therefore, we will automatically view everything that he has done as being something that is permissible and sanctioned by Allah, at least for the time in

00:10:36 --> 00:11:17

place, even if it's not, in our times, because there are some things that we can say are permissible back then. But now, the oma has agreed to move on. And this is one of those issues as I will come to. So if you believe that the process of was a prophet, and that is our belief, then we accept that these things were morally permissible. And if you don't believe this, then it's not my job to really convince. And with regards to the story of Madea, and the fact of the matter is that no amount of sugarcoating removes this reality that Maria and her sister seen, they were not wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Of course, the dean is not he's not, she became the servant of the concubine of

00:11:18 --> 00:12:01

his son. They were not wives, but they were melancholia mean, they weren't melancholia mean, and it does appear we know for we know pretty much for a fact that she later on converted to Islam, but she was not a Muslim when she came, and in our shitty our one cannot take a Muslim as a medical You mean that this is not something that is allowed that a person who is a Muslim, we don't take them as a beat or God and then make them milkier mean, so she comes as a Christian, and she converts at some later unspecific, unspecified time. We do not know when that time is. And she is very much what the Bible itself calls a concubine. This is the term that the Bible itself has. Now, we as Muslims like

00:12:01 --> 00:12:09

to point out that whenever a Christian or a Jewish person says, oh, how could you prophet have so many wives and a concubine? Immediately? Our response is what?

00:12:11 --> 00:12:25

Look at. So look at Solomon, look at David look at so and so look. And so the fact of the matter is that the apostle or the basic ruling is that the biblical prophets had multiple wives, and most of them had concubines.

00:12:26 --> 00:13:11

The Bible mentions Abraham and Moses, of course, David and Solomon, I mean, David has over 700, Solomon has over 1000. This is according to the Bible, over 1000. Ladies, between wives and concubines put together over 1000. So we point out, how can you criticize our process and for having won for most of his life, for more than 25 years of his life, he literally had one. And then in the last few years, he when he was in his 50s, and 60s, he married nine, how can you compare nine to 900, or 1000. So we point this out. And that's a valid point to make to a Christian or a faithful, Christian or Jew. But the problem is, in our times, there are a few faithful Christians and Jews,

00:13:11 --> 00:13:53

and they are also being eliminated from the picture. And more and more people are turning agnostic. And they have no problem criticizing these biblical figures, as well. And so with them, you really cannot quote the past at all. Because they will say that's also wrong, what they did, okay. And to that person, all that we can say, and this is the max, as much as we can say, is that that was a different world in a different time and a different place and a different custom and a different role. And people across the globe had different views about this notion. And while I was doing my research today, I actually came across a Jewish website, q&a, like we have Islamic q&a, they have

00:13:53 --> 00:14:33

another equivalent. And a questioner is asking the rabbi, that how can I understand that Solomon used hundreds of 1000s of slaves to build the temple? Doesn't this go against, you know, humanism and being nice and whatnot. Now he's not asking about the slave girls. He's asking about slaves, because the Bible says that he used 100,000 slaves to build the, the grand temple. So this man is saying, I feel disgusted. And how can I be a Jew after this? How could our Prophet have used a quote, he's talking from himself perspective, you know, all of these slaves. So this rabbi, his name is Rabbi Perry rank from New York, he responds, and this is basically a response we can give that

00:14:33 --> 00:15:00

the thing about history is it does tend to be brutal, and it strips us about our most cherished illusions about the past. So whenever we delve into history, we have to approach it cautiously, knowing that we might not return the same way we entered it is going to change our perception. Solomon was a great builder. And as such he needed workers when he secured through the institution of basically slaves or forced labor. This

00:15:00 --> 00:15:45

was not an uncommon practice in ancient times. So how should we read this? Shall we read it as slavery? Or as employment? is calling slaves employment? Because that's then it goes on. Has Solomon enslaved the masses? Or has he provided them jobs, we tend to think of slavery as an Ultimate Evil of sorts. Here's the point. But the fact is that this was an accepted form of labor for 1000s of years. And now we're disillusionment with it is only recent 300 years old, and only about 150 years, especially here in America. And then it goes on to total has very extensive rules about how to treat slaves, the idea was to humanize and to civilize, and and so he's basically defending the classical

00:15:45 --> 00:16:26

notion of slavery. This is a modern, you know, Jewish rabbi in New York, because they have the same problem we do. And that is the tradition clearly mentions slaves being used by the now of course, we don't have any equivalent of 100,000 slaves being used in mass labor, we have one Madea that was treated very nicely. She has her own house, she's not, you know, working in the fields. But in the end of the day, from modern standards, this is not something that most modern humans would find palatable, right. And so we do need as much as we can explain. So he says, This is not a defense of slavery. And I have to agree with everything. He says, Here, I like you. I'm a child of the anti

00:16:26 --> 00:17:15

slavery movement of modern times, meaning we're living in modern times where everybody has agreed we should be anti slavery. But let's realize that once upon a time, that wasn't the notion in history, and to read what goes on in ancient times through our contemporary eyes. And then to judge it is really not fair to our ancestors. This is what the rabbi's saying. You cannot look through the lens of 2014, as you look at 620. See, and then expect them to have everything like we did, the world was a very different place, and everybody accepted it. And this is really harsh to say, but even the slaves of the time, accepted it that was the way that they were. And again, this is not a defense of

00:17:15 --> 00:17:20

slavery, but it is what now here's another thing that I have to say here, and that is that

00:17:21 --> 00:17:31

the way that the slavery has existed in America in the 1800s, is perhaps the most brutal manifestation of this institution in the history of humanity.

00:17:33 --> 00:18:16

That, Realistically speaking, the way that America used slaves, imported them, caught free people, and brought them here, and use them worse than cattle and animals, and mistreated them and consider them to be inhumane. Even the ancient Greeks were better to their slaves, then this reality. So one of the byproducts of being so harsh towards slaves, was the anti abolitionist movement came out of that, right. And there's nothing wrong with that. But the point is that we need to understand and this is not sugarcoating This is a fact that slavery did not exist in Islamic lands, the way that it existed in America, that's for sure. This is not to sugarcoat there was slavery, of course, there

00:18:16 --> 00:18:53

were slaves. But, and I have a number of quotes, but I don't really have time to get into them. But it is very true, historically speaking, and there are quotes that I can bring to maybe we'll have another talk about this, historically speaking, that the first Europeans that visited Ottoman lands and visited Muslim lands and interacted with basically Muslims, they were amazed at how the slaves were treated in Muslim lands compared to how they're treated in European lands. So they're amazed at how gentle how kind, the slave one of the marks the slave speaks back to the master that, you know, cut back my work or whatever I mean, he'll actually argue with the master, and we know from our

00:18:53 --> 00:19:32

Islamic history, that some slaves even became kings, the mum Luke dynasty, which was the most prestigious dynasty that fought against the Mongols, right? Ganges Khan's hordes are the great great grandson of Gandhi's Khan, the mum Luke, what what is mameluke mean? is called the slave dynasty. Literally mum lukeman slave. And this dynasty was a dynasty of slaves who eventually rose to power and became the Holy Father. And they ruled over the Muslim world for almost 500 years, up until the advent of Napoleon Bonaparte a in 1792. I mean, it's really bizarre. Napoleon fought the Mamelukes. Napoleon's fighting with guns the moment also fighting with swords. That's one of the reasons why

00:19:32 --> 00:19:59

they lost okay. And that was the beginning of modernity. Muhammad Ali Pasha of Egypt came and then modernization began, because the moment books were destroyed. point being that who were the Mamelukes? They were a slave dynasty. Okay. So, in the end of the day, yes, we can add all of these points. There's only so much rationalization that I can do only so much sugarcoating. If somebody wants to find fault with what happened, then Honestly, this is the perspective of 2014 being bad.

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

projected onto 610. There's nothing I can do about that. Okay, but I, as a Muslim who believes this man to be a prophet of Allah, I accepted this was acceptable for the time and the place. And we also have to add here this is compounded by the fact that in modern times, we have these extremist groups that are now starting this whole notion of in trapping and basically conquering innocent women and then making them into slaves, right? We have the Boko Haram, we have the ISIS we have all of this. So this obviously complicates it and you then have people saying, Oh, look, they're basing this on the process. And this is ludicrous, because what Boko Haram is doing is haram.

00:20:41 --> 00:21:20

Because why is this because well, many reasons. The most obvious one, the Shetty are completely and and categorically forbids taking a free person and making them into a slave. There is a channel to become a slave. And that is prisoners of war who are not ransomed off. Okay? It is absolutely and categorically hot on like with Boko Haram has done is to invade a Christian village and take school girls in broad daylight and then make them into slaves, or what ISIS is doing with the Zd families, What wrong have they done? Where is the sin are the crime? Where is the Jihad being waged? Who is the halifa? Where are the prisoner of war? This is complete How long? So we're not even you know,

00:21:20 --> 00:22:01

there's no comparison at all with what is happening in modern times, with what happened in the past. And also, of course, there's another point and that is that scholars of our era have agreed that slavery is now a thing of the past, just like in other faith traditions, where, yes, there were times when slavery was practiced, and they justified it. But now, in the era that we live in, I don't know of any scholar of our tradition, I don't know of a single alum that is calling for a return to slavery time things have moved on. And I'll give you just one example of this that I know for a fact my own dear teacher,

00:22:02 --> 00:22:45

Sheikh Mohammed Divisadero, immediately, they made a very famous item, of course, he's passed away more than a decade and a half ago. But when the Bosnian War was taking place, and this is in the early 90s, he was very much involved with giving advice to the people. And that was a legitimate war, a legitimate jihad. everybody acknowledges that the Serbs were massacring the Muslims. There was so much bloodshed, the UN, as you know, has done a tribunal under crimes court against the Serb leaders, right. everybody acknowledges that this was a legitimate jihad, that Muslims had to defend themselves. I know for a fact that Shekar Northumbrian was asked by some of the people on the

00:22:45 --> 00:22:56

ground, we have prisoners of war. We can't run some of them off. Can we take them as milkier? Me? And the chef said no, this is not allowed in our times.

00:22:58 --> 00:23:25

And this is a chef that is generally considered very ultra conservative, very hardline whatnot, of course, that's the way they perceive him, I consider him to be a great honor. But the point being, this is a fucking he understands you can't do this. This is not something we resurrect from the books of Enoch. Right? So this is something that very clearly our scholars have understood that no, you don't do this anymore. That's something that okay, it was permissible for the time. Now, it's not something that we need to resurrect. And so

00:23:26 --> 00:23:35

the point is that our profit system was indeed gifted Madea, Madea was not our mother. She's not of the Omaha, meaning.

00:23:36 --> 00:24:05

She so we do not view her as being of the Manhattan what meaning she was milky, I mean, she remained milky, I mean, and she was never a soldier. And if she had become a soldier, she would be of the almohads meaning. And so our processor was gifted Madea. And of course, we know that Maria gave birth to the son of our Prophet system, and that is Ibrahim. And there's one story that is also mentioned about Maria.

00:24:07 --> 00:24:43

And again, I mean, I've already mentioned to you a big issue about the whole issue of media, but I would rather you hear these things from me again, rather than you hear about them from some other websites or other person, then, you know, this causes doubts. And again, will lie, I'll be honest with you, if we lived in a different time, a different place, not everything needs to be mentioned. You know, it's not us, okay? Some things are healthy, some things, there's no need to shit, you know, put the spotlight on them. But I feel very strongly from my own experiences in the time and place we live in. It is better that we talk about this in a frank manner, because we don't want our

00:24:43 --> 00:24:57

youth will lie. Even last week, I got a call from one of our youngsters he had literally he had told me he is not a Muslim anymore, but his parents wanted me to talk to her what not, he's a mortar and he said this I don't believe anymore. And he's quoting a number of things from the zero

00:24:58 --> 00:24:59

from the zero

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

And these are things that are mentioned in the books. It's not something that you know,

00:25:04 --> 00:25:12

it's not where did you hear about it from? Not from me? Not From where did you hear it? What do you think? Well, in particular?

00:25:14 --> 00:25:53

Yeah, exactly. Exactly. You know, so he heard it from islamophobes. He heard it from people that have this agenda. And he's logged on to their websites. And they put all of these narrations one from this year one from that year, and they ignore, you know, so many other stories that are just amazing, that form the character of the processor, and they concentrate on these 234. And sometimes they'll bring a little bit exaggeration, but they're not lying. And that's the point they understand. Now, it's you can't lie anymore. They quote directly from, you know, a Pavani, or even as Hulk or whatever, and they bring 510 incidents. And, you know, this young kid said, I just can't

00:25:53 --> 00:26:21

believe that this is, uh, you know, it is what he said. So, you know, I'm telling you, in all honesty, if we lived in a different time and place, Well, lucky, let's just move on. But we don't, I would rather we talk about it and clarify, so that we understand. And then, you know, whoever wants to then have a different position or whatnot, our job is to convey the message is up to them to believe what they want. So and of course, this is not, it's scandalous from audio, but not for our profit center. And that is that

00:26:22 --> 00:27:07

Maria was not a Muslim at the time. And she is, of course, coming to a strange land. And she probably does not speak the language of Arabic. And so one can kind of understand that, you know, she's all alone in a strange land. So rumors began to spread, that the servant that was gifted along with Madea his name was bored, was visiting Maria. Okay, so rumors began to spread over this nature, and you understand what these rumors entail. And so some reports also mentioned that this servant bore was a relative, like a distant cousin or something of Madhya, which would also then you know, make it like they have some connection from back as well. And so, and this hadith is reported in

00:27:07 --> 00:27:26

Sahih. Muslim By the way, so it's clearly it's not something in some obscure the Hadith I'm going to mention, it's not some obscure book, it's mentioned in pretty much every single book, you know, of the sunon, and whatnot, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded it to be authoritative, to take his sword and find more

00:27:28 --> 00:27:58

ideal with the man find this person board. And of course, it is assigned by the Allahu anhu these tasks because anything to do with the personal family of the processor, it's highly okay. So anything to do with the personal family of the Prophet says, Adam, it is the man that is chosen, because he is either the bait he is a part of the family of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So he took the sword and he said, asked a very intelligent question. He said, O Messenger of Allah. Should I go as

00:27:59 --> 00:28:24

a silent person who just obeys the command? Or should I go as somebody who hears and sees what the person absent will not hear and see? Meaning? Do you want me to investigate? Or you want me to just do or do you want? So he asked an intelligent question. And so the process of them said, No, go as somebody who hears and sees IE find out, you do investigation.

00:28:26 --> 00:28:33

And this, by the way, just jumped the gun here. So because of this phrase, imminent I am and they've been has him and others, they say

00:28:34 --> 00:29:16

that the Profit System was not sending Ali to execute my poor. He was sending him to frighten him and to find out. And the other position, which is the position also found is that he was being sent to execute. So this is a bit of a controversy because you have 50 points 50 ramifications based upon this. Do you understand the filter ramifications? The main filter ramification motherboard was not given a trial. evidence was not presented to witnesses were not found. And it is being told here's the knife go do it. Okay, so one opinion says that the processing had this right. Of course, they all say nobody else has this right. I mean, understood. I mean, that's clearly maybe I should

00:29:16 --> 00:29:42

mention it, you know, that's something for the process. But the other opinion which is even if it even has him and others, they say, no, this is not judge, jury and executioner. This is the process of them sending it to in you know, basically frightened interrogate, and that's why he tells it, use your ears and eyes, figure out what's happening. And so I leave, you thought it goes and finds my board. According to one report, he was in a

00:29:44 --> 00:29:59

he was in a date, Grove, collecting dates or perhaps getting water. And when I saw him, he became terrified and there's again multiple reports over here. One report mentions that he attempted to climb up a tree but then fell down

00:30:00 --> 00:30:39

Another report mentions that he intentionally exposed his outer. In either case, his outer was exposed in either case, what happened either he fell down, or he intentionally expose it. And lo and behold, it was obvious that he had been castrated. In fact, castration is not the word he had been, how should we put this? mutilated? That's the best way we can say this, right? He did not have the Oregon that a man has. So of course, this is what some of the civilizations did to slaves. Of course, in our tradition, this is always prohibited, you cannot do this ever, ever is never allowed to do this, even to a legitimate slave, you cannot do this. But of course, other civilization didn't

00:30:39 --> 00:30:40

have that rule. So

00:30:42 --> 00:31:29

it was then clear to you that the rumors can't be true, that he doesn't even have this. So He then returned to the process and informed him that basically, this is not something that is the case. And as I said, it will play him and others have mentioned that this is something to frighten him and not as a as an executioner. In any case, so that issue was resolved. And in the nature of the eighth year of the hedgerow, in the hedger, Madea gives birth to a son. And, of course, our Prophet system was especially happy. Now, we don't know when Modi embraced Islam, I tried my best to look up as many books as I could, I could not find the time when Modi embraced Islam. So was it before this was

00:31:29 --> 00:32:14

it after this? We don't know. Okay, but one can assume that living with the Prophet system, obviously you will embrace Islam, you will see the Prophet of Allah you will interact with him. So one can assume that by the time Malia is born, so now she is a different person, she has now embraced Islam. And the profitsystem Hadith is a Muslim and others, that he came to the masjid beaming with joy, the brothers, the Sahaba saw him smiling. And he said, last night, a baby boy was born to me, and I shall call him the name of my father, Ibrahim. Father Isabella, he called me my father, Abraham. And he said about Maria, that her child has freed her at aka how what to do her,

00:32:14 --> 00:32:17

her child has freed her. And this means that

00:32:18 --> 00:33:01

this What this means is that this is a ruling that our religion has, which is an interesting ruling, which again, shows you the way that slavery was practiced in Islam is very different than the way it is in any other civilization, that in our shediac, if a concubine gives birth, well, of course, the child will be fully legitimate and exactly the same as all other children in inheritance in were authored in the taking the name of the Father and taking the status of the Father. And I should have mentioned most of our whole affair of the oma years and there are buses especially, and the Ottomans, almost all of them were sons of slave slaves. So being the son of a slave did not have any

00:33:01 --> 00:33:43

type of negative smear at all. In fact, even hajah, right and his smile, right, this is the same thing. Okay, so the point being that in our shitty when the slave has a child, when such a concubine has a child, automatically, she gets a free upgrade, what is this free upgrade, the shediac calls her own wallet, Omen wallet, and normally what that means that she is no longer a concubine, she has certain privileges and rights, and of them if she cannot be sold, she cannot be transferred, she cannot be treated like a slave and she will become free as soon as her

00:33:44 --> 00:33:50

husband or owner in this case passes away. Okay, so this is a woman wallet. Okay.

00:33:53 --> 00:34:38

So we can say this, that Islam is coming close to this issue of absolving slavery, that every single lady that gives birth, you cannot, and this is why so humane? How can you then get rid of the lady who gave birth to your own son or daughter, right? It becomes how long to do this. And this lady is now upgraded from milky Ameen to Omen wallet. And when you become a male wallet, so as soon as the owner dies, you become automatically free. Nobody can be your owner after that. So our process in him gave the filk ruling through Maria Takahata to her the fact that she has a child. Now she's a free lady now that she was going to become a free lady, and one of the ladies of the unsought they

00:34:38 --> 00:34:59

volunteer to become a foster mother. In fact, the books of Sierra mentioned there was a competition. eagerness a lot of women came to want to be a foster mother to the child. And this also shows us by the way, this is a custom that has almost disappeared from our time, but it was very common for ladies to volunteer to help out and to be a foster child too.

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

Children, and every mother knows it's so difficult to raise a newborn and infant. And this is what they will do, they will help one another out. And they will just take the child and, you know, help out in rearing the child. So one of the ladies of the unsought and her name is mentioned in the books. She basically the process of agreed that she should be the wet nurse if you like. And so she takes charge of the child for some periods as well. And the process of gave her some stipend for that as well, because this is a paid job that it is done. And Ibrahim lived for a year. And some reports, say, a year and four months, some reports, say a year and six months. So basically between

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

this amount of time around 18 months.

00:35:40 --> 00:36:17

And to the best of my knowledge, I don't know of any Hadith that mentions any incident. Within this year and a half. I don't know of anything I tried again to look up and to the best of my knowledge, I was not able to find any incident about you know, something with this young boy, Allah knows best, most likely, you know, there's not something that they narrated onwards. And again, this is one of the sad realities of the Sierra, we only have what the Sahaba told us about. And perhaps there was nothing other than the fact that he's a baby boy with the process in the scene with him. We don't know much about that. And so what we do know is that in the first quarter of the 10th year of the

00:36:17 --> 00:37:02

hijra when the process and barely has less than a year left to live, basically, that his son passed away. And for those of us who are parents in this room, you all know not only that the passing of a son or daughter is the most painful thing, but that's the age of a month, a year and a half is the most tender and the most cute, adorable age, right? The terrible twos haven't begun yet. Okay. And it is at that age where there's the child is walking, laughing, running, waddling around, the child recognizes you, it's grunting and groaning in its own way. I mean, that is the cutest cutest age. We all know this as parents, okay, then after that's about all that kind of goes downhill. But anyway,

00:37:02 --> 00:37:28

humbler parents or parents we have to do with it as it exists. But at that age Subhan Allah, Allah subhanaw taala willed that Abraham passed away. And there are many reports in the Sierra about his death. There are not datameer reports about his life, because I'm assuming it was a non descriptive in what you would expect a child the process was seen with him, what are you going to report about that? You know, I mean, it's not nothing that is above and beyond. But

00:37:29 --> 00:37:37

his death, of course, is something that is reported in every single book of how the the body Muslim, every book of Hadith reports, the death of Ibrahim, and

00:37:38 --> 00:38:16

some of the, the books mentioned that the news came that Abraham has fallen sick and is about to die. So we can assume you know, the doctors, of course, at the time, they knew that symptoms of death have begun. So the information is told and conveyed to the process and the process of visited Maria and Maria lived in a place in Medina called la de la Valley. And coincidentally, I used to live there as well. And that area there still called it I want you to this day, after 14 centuries, it is still called the Medina by the way the names of the areas of Medina are pretty much the same. How do I show you how to how to be, you know, LaValle, these are still from the Sierra, you still

00:38:16 --> 00:39:00

have them. So coincidentally, I didn't know I was also where I'd even had been thought I've had a house where Mario had a house. So a number of Sahaba had their houses in that vicinity. And just coincidentally, when I came department of funk was actually in, in our body. And so Mario was was in our body. And so the process of visited Madea, and some of the Sahaba went with him to see Ibrahim, and he held Ibrahim in his hand, and Ibrahim was wheezing and coughing. And you could tell that the pangs of death had begun. And the tears began to fall from the face of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this was when one of the Sahaba said, our sabich era sutala you also cry or messenger

00:39:00 --> 00:39:47

of Allah, you also cry. So this shows us that he rarely cried in public. And that to see him cry was a shock to some of the Sahaba. They're asking him like, Are you human as well, you can cry as well, or whatever, chiaroscuro Allah. And so he responded with his famous phrase, that the eyes cry, and the heart is sad. But we only say that which will please our Lord. The eyes cry, and the heart is sad. But we only say that which will please our Lord. And we're not for the decree of a law to pass, and that the latter amongst us shall meet the earlier meaning those who die will meet those who have already died. Okay, so Abraham, you're dying, but I too, will die and I'll meet up with you. So he's

00:39:47 --> 00:39:50

saying we're not for the quarter of a lot must take place.

00:39:51 --> 00:40:00

And that eventually we'll all be together. We would have been much more grieved at your departure. So this shows us to

00:40:00 --> 00:40:11

Things to console us when somebody dies. Number one Father Allah, Allah has decreed what can you do? And number two insha Allah, it's only a matter of time that all of us will be together in gender.

00:40:12 --> 00:40:25

Right? So these are the two things that you console yourself with when somebody passes away that other Allah, what are you going to do Allah decree? Allah has woulda, coulda said that was remote. And then and hamdulillah death is not something that is

00:40:27 --> 00:41:09

permanent departure, because you will also die. So when your loved one departs, there's only a matter of time before you depart as well. Then when the both of you have departed, inshallah you will be together. So this is what the prophet says I'm saying, and then he reiterated that truly we are sad, but we only say that which pleases our Lord. Okay, so this shows us what does suburb mean? suburb means you control your tongue, and your actions. suburb has nothing to do with emotions. You can feel sad, you can cry, this is fine. Summer has nothing to do with that. sober means you control what you say. And you control what you do. You don't start wheeling and saying how am I going to

00:41:09 --> 00:41:37

live? And this is why is this happening to me? No, we control our tongue, and we control our limbs as well. And then hamdulillah by and large, most Muslim societies have stopped this practice and fortunately, still around in some practice some cultures of beating oneself or pulling their hair, but at Hamdulillah, I would say most Muslim societies have kind of eliminated these pre Islamic jahi practices. And the books of Hadith mentioned that Ibrahim salata, janazah, was prayed for him.

00:41:39 --> 00:42:16

So from this, we learn, we pray janazah, for a young boy, so that he knows was prayed for him. And we learned that the process is used for tech Birotte. So from this, we learned there's four types north and south Latinos, as we know, for Iraq, and that Ibrahim was buried in back here in a graveyard that is still known to this day. And every time we go to our group goes whenever inshallah this year as well when we go next month for those of you who are going, so one of the things we'll do is make a tour of Bucky. And I'll show you exactly where he got locked out in one month from now inshallah, I'll show you exactly where the grave Ibrahim is and the other graves as well of the

00:42:16 --> 00:42:52

wives of the Prophet and others this in Buckley had a lot of clubs. So he was buried in Buckley air in a place that is well known to this day. And Subhanallah look at how many deaths of the family of the Prophet system that he had to suffer from the beginning to the end, Abraham died less than one year before our processing them died, literally at 62 years old. Now, you know what one would think he has gone through so much suffering his mother, you know, his father has died before he's born, his mother dies, his grandfather of automotive, you know, his his confidant and wife of 25 years, Khadija, you know, passes away, everybody's passing every single son of his and daughter of his

00:42:52 --> 00:43:06

dies, other than Fatima, all three of his daughters are already dead by this time. So that's why he was extra happy at the birth of Ibrahim, that he only has Fatima left, everybody has died. Right? So he's extra happy at the birth of Ibrahim and now and now.

00:43:10 --> 00:43:16

This is a new talking about and this is say you This is how nobody heard this say yet. This is Hassan and Hussein.

00:43:19 --> 00:43:23

Oh, have to look this report up. I don't know if this report. So

00:43:25 --> 00:43:28

we're getting there. We're getting there, your spirit sovereign and jameelah.

00:43:29 --> 00:43:45

So And where was I and so I said that all of his, all of his children had passed away other than Fatima at this point in time, so all three of his daughters and his son or two sons from the past, we don't know how many Khadija are the one or two or three. And of course,

00:43:47 --> 00:44:30

Khadija and others have passed away. So the very last year of his life, Allah azza wa jal tests him one more time, all of this is to demonstrate to raise his ranks in gender for him to be a role model for us. And what is perhaps even more amazing than all of this is that on the day of the death of Ibrahim, as reported in the midst of a theocracy, on the day of the death of Ibrahim, there was a solar eclipse. There was a solar eclipse, that within a few hours, Ibrahim dies in the morning. Within a few hours, there's a solar eclipse. And the fact that there is an eclipse is mentioned in Bukhari and Muslim. But it's not Ibrahim is not mentioned the death of other books of Hadith

00:44:30 --> 00:44:59

mentioned that took place. On the day Ibrahim died. And the people began to say that the Son is grieving at the sorrow of the Prophet Sasa because he was sad because he was crying. So even the son is sad. And the sun is shielding itself because it is crying. So the news spread in Medina, that the sun is crying, because of the death of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:45:00 --> 00:45:46

Son. And so, the profitsystem gathered all of the people together and he gave a whole tuba. And this Hooda is recorded in Bahati and Muslim. And he said, in the shumsa will Kamara Attorney at Law hit Allah. The sun and the moon are two of the miracles of a law. Lion, Cassie Fanny, they don't have an eclipse lemo dia had in the hierarchy when somebody is born or somebody dies. So when you see an eclipse, then hasten to do Vicar of Allah and perform the Sunnah. And this incident is reported and behind most of this code is found in Bukhari and Muslim. As I said, the death of Ibrahim is not linked to the eclipse in Bahati, but it is in the Muslim, the Buddha, Buddha totality. So other

00:45:46 --> 00:46:15

books have added mentioned and happened on the same date. But the multiple and Mojave is very clear that the process is saying the sun does not Eclipse because of the birth or the death of anybody. Why would he say that unless there's a birth and a death taking place. And of course, it was the death of his own son. And to me, it is incidents like these that prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that our Prophet Mohammed sysm was a sincere Prophet, that he didn't even have to

00:46:16 --> 00:46:26

rebel against the rumors. He didn't have to negate the rumors. He didn't have to do anything. He could have just been quiet. I mean, what does it lose him?

00:46:27 --> 00:47:11

If those people say he's a false prophet? How does he lose anything? Let the rumor spread is good. Let the people say, let the world know that the Son is crying because of my son, my the death of my son, right? But somehow Allah He can't because he is Rasulullah. And he has to preach the truth. And so he calls the people together. And he literally says to them, that the moon and the sun don't Eclipse because of the birth of anybody, or the death of anybody, even my own son. That's independent of the miracles of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And to me, this clearly demonstrates the sincerity of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is one of millions of evidences that

00:47:11 --> 00:47:39

really, you know, we have to put into context, even if certain incidents like this are difficult to explain. And yes, for our cultural paradigm, it is difficult, but will let you How do you explain this? How do you explain this that the miracle of the eclipses taking place? And he says, No, no, it's not a miracle. Don't it's just a coincidence. It's just a complete coincidence. This to me is a clear sign of the sincerity of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And of course, the fact that Ibrahim

00:47:41 --> 00:48:19

could not become a young man and an adult is something that one can say has already been decreed by Allah subhana wa tada explicitly in the Quran, because Allah says in the Quran, Makana Mohammedan ahead in marriage alikum. Wallach rasulillah, Hartman nibi, this verse was revealed before the birth of Ibrahim, this verse of sutala HAZOP was revealed before the birth of Abraham, and it translates as Mohammed Salah Salem is not the father of any of your men. He is not the father of any of your men. Now, if Ibrahim had become a young man, this would have contradicted the verse

00:48:20 --> 00:48:29

by Abraham and notice here the precision of the Quran, Allah didn't say he is not a father. He didn't say he's not a father to a child or a boy.

00:48:31 --> 00:49:16

The word is very clear my kind of Mohammedan Abba had a mirror regionally come. Look at how precise the verse is. Mohammed is not the father of any of your regional and regional is by definition, a grown man. Okay? And if Allah azza wa jal, or if the Quran had said, he is not a father to any, any boy and the man, the meaning of man, meaning a mood, let's say, because the Quran also uses the word mood, right? While mo ludie. Right, the another word mood could mean anything, boy, girl, baby, anything, and that's what you call the baby. But a lot didn't say he's not the father of any baby, or the father of any child or the father of any offspring. Rather allow us to very precise word

00:49:17 --> 00:49:45

Makana, Mohammed about them originally. And SubhanAllah. Ibrahim was never a rajouri. Ibrahim was always a word. He was a mold he was a baby. And so Allah azza wa jal has already clearly said, your profit is not going to be the father of any man amongst you. And therefore, one could say that theologically, or you know, from the Quran, it's impossible. Then there is another report desert which is very interesting, and that is a report found in urban Marja

00:49:47 --> 00:49:59

from NSW Malik that the Prophet system is reported to have said that when Ibrahim died he said that Allah has given him a wet nurse and Moodle Dr. engender so there's somebody to take care of him.

00:50:00 --> 00:50:45

Jenna, while awash Lacan and a B and D, aka nebia Ibrahim had lived, he would have been a righteous prophet. Now this hadith is reported in Madhya, and some of our scholars, including shakaal Advani have made it happen. But the majority of scholars, and this is the position I leaned towards as well. And Allah knows best, it is not a statement of the process of his statement of nsmt Malik. It's a statement of nsmt Malik, and this is actually proven, and other narrations, most of them than others, they mentioned it upon ns as a statement from him. And this makes more sense that anemone Malik said and other Sahaba said that if Abraham had lived, he would have been a prophet. And this

00:50:45 --> 00:51:09

is a statement from them. That's an he had that, that How could a prophet How could the son of the process that have not been other than a a prophet. So this is an issue at heart from an asymptomatic, it's not the strongest event it is not a headache. Also, one can also add here, that there is a political wisdom in not having male lineage of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, because there's no doubt that if there was male lineage, then

00:51:11 --> 00:51:51

immediately that would have been the next leaf and the next rally for the next Khalifa and whatnot. As it is look at the controversies that erupted from the descendants of the process and through his daughter. Look at how groups formed. Look at how groups exalted the status of the parallel bait to above what is even human. And this lol bait, they are a little bit we respect and admire them. But there's a big difference between us and the Shia. For us, we say the ad elbaite are special and bless it if they are holy. Whereas the bulk of the Shia, I'll say the Al Bayt are special and blessing because they are holy.

00:51:52 --> 00:52:18

In other words, if you are at elbaite, you are automatically Blessed and holy. Whereas for us, if you're a descendant of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that does not make you a righteous man in and of itself, blood does not make you righteous, your good deeds will make you righteous. So if you have good deeds, and you are albite, the neuron Allah know you have a double. But if you're not a good person, then your blood will not save you.

00:52:19 --> 00:52:55

And if that were the case, then all of us are the children of prophets. We are children of No, we're Children of Adam. All of us are children and prophets. Right? Every human being is a son or daughter of Noah. directly. Every human being is obviously Sunnah Dr. Adam. So we don't believe that being children of prophets automatically makes you holy, even if it is the process of it, frankly, all you need to do is look at historically, the descendants of the process of in the eighth 10th 15th generation in our times, right, some of the rulers of countries in our times have authentic lineages to the profitsystem look at what they are their father, or their grandfather, you know, what I'm

00:52:55 --> 00:53:32

talking about here, you know, look at what they have done, sold their countries and whatnot to, I mean, it doesn't matter. Well, it doesn't matter if your lineage is holy or bless it, but you are an unrighteous man is not gonna. And this is a Hadith, of course, in Timothy, that man among men, Buck Fabiana, hula Musa owner Sabu, who's ever his good deeds hold him back, his lineage will not push him forward, who's ever his good deeds hold him back, his lineage will not push him forward. This is what the process of himself is saying, doesn't matter who your ancestors are. If you don't have the good deeds, you don't have the good deeds. And so

00:53:33 --> 00:53:51

we believe that Abraham at a cinema will that he passed away he died. And perhaps there is truth in this as well that if he had lived, he would have been a prophet. There's one more incident narrated about Mati, and then we are done with the story of Medea. And this is an incident that the books of Tafseer mentioned more than the books of Sierra

00:53:53 --> 00:54:37

because the Quran was revealed for this incident, and therefore, the book says, of Tafseer mentioned this story. And once again, so with Maria, there's all of these mini stories that are problematic from one perspective, and this is also one of them. And again, I reiterated it better you hear it from me then from others, and also this is in the Quran. So you can't really like this is a verse in the Quran, it is reported in poverty, that and many other books of Tafseer that one day have saw, went away and she was not going to be at home. And so the process is called Madea to the house of hafsa. And it's so happened that hafsa returned earlier than she was supposed to. And she saw Maria

00:54:37 --> 00:54:41

leaving her house. So she became extremely enraged.

00:54:42 --> 00:54:59

And she became irritated with the Prophet. So saddam and she said that Yasuda law is that how much? How do I translate this respect you have for me or is that what you think of me? In my house and on my day, and so the profits

00:55:00 --> 00:55:37

seldom continue to play, cater and calm her down. And she basically was very emotional. And until eventually she made the profitsystem promise to never ever see Maria again. And the profitsystem said, I have made her how long for myself? Okay, okay, hold us I give a basically, Maria is how long for me? I will never see Marty, I swear to a viola, I'm never going to see Marty again. And he told half. So he made half saw, basically keep this between the two of them. And he said do not tell her Isha.

00:55:38 --> 00:55:49

And this shows, and this is here's the point here that these types of incidents, the image that some Muslims have, of our profits, this item

00:55:50 --> 00:55:53

literally makes him superhuman.

00:55:54 --> 00:55:59

So when they hear these narrations, the image they have formed in their minds crumbles.

00:56:00 --> 00:56:05

And the problem comes that this image should not have been in their minds.

00:56:07 --> 00:56:09

Our Prophet system was a human or not.

00:56:11 --> 00:57:05

For sure, he was right. He was the best human, he was the perfect human. But in the end of the day, he's a human being. And so, yes, he wanted malaria. And he it is hard for him to have malaria. And he now is wants to placate hafsa. So he promises not to see. And he does not want to find out. Every husband here understands exactly the fear of a wife what kids can do. Right? This is the reality as well. Okay? So there's nothing wrong with this image at all. But the first time somebody hears it, again, because of the image that they have constructed, something is wrong. But in reality, this is human nature. All of this is completely human. And there's nothing out arm that he has done. There's

00:57:05 --> 00:57:14

nothing sinful. I process them did not, you know, commit any sin of this nature. So he makes a promise not to tell Arusha. hafsa of course.

00:57:16 --> 00:57:23

She goes and tells her she spills the beans. Why would she tell Ayesha? Can anybody explain the psychology?

00:57:35 --> 00:57:36

Why don't you raise your voice?

00:57:46 --> 00:57:49

No, not that, why would she tell I shouldn't know.

00:57:51 --> 00:57:57

To make Ayesha jealous of her that I caused the process of him to give up

00:57:58 --> 00:58:43

to give up, Mario clear, right? And of course, the two of them, they had their spots and they they were sometimes the best different and sometimes the worst of enemies, right? So hafsa and Ayesha had a very interesting relationship. Whereas otherwise they never got along Xena bonacci never got along never but have signed up a time Zoo with the best of friends and at times, they were at each other. And so this is like trying to trying to show a show that I was the one who got money out of the picture. And the both of them were jealous of Mario right Maria was a beautiful lady. And it was because of this as was mentioned it was because of this that the process of the move to to actually

00:58:43 --> 00:59:02

faraway otherwise the otherwise we're around the masjid so moved her away to faraway place that there's no direct interaction. So she makes sorry he makes I have promised not to tell hafsa goes and tells and spills the beans. Then what happens? Allah reveals in the Quran

00:59:04 --> 00:59:09

Allah reveals in the Quran that's what we're talking about it right here and allow reveals what is revealed which Surah

00:59:10 --> 00:59:23

Surah had him Okay, so let's attack him. Yeah, you wanna be you? Oh, Prophet Lima to Henry moment. Hello, la hulak Why are you making her arm? What Allah has made halaal for you, meaning what?

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

Maria? Mr. bata is logic you do it in order to please your wife. So you make her arm with Allah had made Helen simply to please your wife. Well, lajos afford Rahim. Allah azza wa jal is Forgiving and Merciful. Right? Or the father of the law hula come to * letter a man whom Allah has obligated on you to get rid of your oath. What was the oath?

00:59:50 --> 00:59:52

never see again. So how do you get rid of the oath?

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

You fast or you give a Raka Basically, there is a method in the Koran. You feed the poor. You fast you

01:00:00 --> 01:00:21

Give a you so Allah saying I have obligated on you now to get rid of this oath don't miss out on what Allah has been held out for you, but the follow the law will come to head let a mighty Kamala whom Allah and Allah is your protector well who an animal Kabir what is a sovereign Vu inevitably as well Jihad either and when the process I'm told one of his wives ate a secret This is

01:00:22 --> 01:01:12

right and he told her it's a secret a subtle fella named Bobby he called us man America haha. So there's a missing clauses understood, so she spilled the secret she spilled the beans. So when the Prophet system told her Why did you spill the beans? Why did you tell somebody Why did you tell her? Why did you tell Asia right? All that man and Baraka hada have sources who told you I told Arusha How did you know? Now what is hafsa thinking? Ah Isha is stabbing me in the back now. issues now coming and telling the whole thing. So I have said getting jealous now menambah hada Who told you that I told her right because it's only me and her nobody else and so on. But in the end, Eileen

01:01:12 --> 01:01:54

will be alone Allah told me right into to obey the law he had suffered kulu bukoba So Allah says the both of you what you did, in trying to basically make yourselves better and under attack the both of you if you repent to Allah, even if you repent, your hearts have inclined towards what it doesn't say, but meaning to deprive him of the highlight for consulted kulu Kuma what interval How long are they he and if the two of you dare cooperate against him. For in Allahu Allahu Allah is his protector. What do you believe, was solid meaning and the righteous believers and that's our bucket and our modern Earth man, the righteous but it was an early one man acts rather than a couple here

01:01:54 --> 01:02:19

and after the righteous believers, even the angel so this is a verse that is meant to bring some fear to the whys of the process of don't conspire against him, don't go behind backs and now trying to Allah knows what you are doing. And there is no denying that Allah azza wa jal is showing the status of our process and even to his wives. Even to his wives, he is showing that, that he is not like a normal

01:02:20 --> 01:03:00

person, of course, he's a normal human, but you get my point, he's not the Hulk are much more, the helco of this husband are much more than that of any husband. So that's why the warning comes down very clearly, that even if you repent, you have already wanted to commit some crime, right? Meaning Allah will forgive you, but you shouldn't have done that. And if you are going to continue down this path and conspire against him, then Allah azza wa jal will protect him and the righteous people and God and the melodica are behind after that, as well. Now, so because of this, Allah revealed the command to break the oath. And so

01:03:01 --> 01:03:42

he broke the oath, he gave the casada. And so Maria returned to him. Now, there is an alternative version, there's two opinions about sort of at the helm. This opinion of Madea is really the strongest one and the correct one, there is an alternative that some of the Sahaba posited. And this is that it involves, it involves some honey that was given to him by soda. And I shouldn't have said, conspired, the fact of the matter. Yes, the story is mentioned. But the fact of the matter is that it doesn't fit and follow all of the the versus the secret, and the two of you conspiring and whatnot, it doesn't fit as perfectly as the story of, of Mario. And also, it doesn't seem that big

01:03:42 --> 01:04:17

of a deal of the processes, I'm never going to eat honey, again. Versus the issue of Mati, it makes perfect sense. Why would the wives get so jealous about spending 20 minutes extra because he had honey, because the other story goes that he had honey at the house of one otherwise, and so they got very jealous that he's having money. And that doesn't, it doesn't fit as perfectly as the story of Mario. Now, by the way, some scholars say, Oh, these personal issues of the process of Adam's House are private matters, they should be left alone. We shouldn't talk about them. But to respond to this, we say if Allah had wanted to, he could have had kept it private.

01:04:18 --> 01:04:59

But he revealed sooner to him because of it. So there is a wisdom for us in it. And there was much why that was private this way is public. And also this is not the custom even of the Sahaba. So we have been abuzz for example, saying that I was waiting for an opportunity from Bob, four months, four years to ask about sort of the honeymoon until finally, one opportunity came, he said, and I found out all by myself, so I basically jumped on him and said immediately Yeah, I mean, meaning who are the two women is related to him? So he's asking who are the two women and Romano hubub says he should have his own daughter.

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

Look at the honesty This is his own daughter, that Allah is saying into to Allah for cassava lucuma. So if he wanted to keep it private, he could have said none of your business young man, you know, don't ask, you could imagine if anybody wants to keep it private, it's drama. But it's a lot revealing in the Koran. And they've been abuzz is eager to find out. Remember, even Abbas was 1213 years old, he doesn't, he will learn his in after the death of the Prophet system. He will study after that. So this is his eagerness he wants to ask what about so Rama tells him, this is what happened. And so therefore, I think that and if you look at the story of Madiba mean will lie,

01:05:36 --> 01:06:18

there's so much benefit from us to see that even the wives of the processor, they were Yes, they were regular human beings, they felt jealous about their husband, like every wife would, that our processing is a human being. And here's the whole point is that if we portray him the way that our books of Syrah portray him, then everything fits into place. But if we make an imaginary perspective, and we formulate a person who never actually existed, then when we read the books of zero or one, some person comes and gives us an incident, it completely shakes our understanding. And I think this is a problem. And I think if you listen, and this is one of my goals, really, of this

01:06:18 --> 01:07:03

whole Sierra is to increase a man of ours of our young brothers and sisters, to make them realize the true message of our Prophet system to not make him into something that he wasn't he did. He didn't do anything wrong. He's a human being. And he has halaal access to Mario. Okay. hafsa has the right to get irritated? Yes, we understand that it's her house, she has the right to get irritated, right. But technically, he didn't do how long and our processing did not commit to him. Right? He did something that yes, hafsa, we can understand 100% sympathize with her. But then when she had the sympathy of the process, and what did she do, she took it more than she needed to, right. And she

01:07:03 --> 01:07:44

went beyond what would have been appropriate. And so when she did this, and then she felt she had accomplished something, she goes to Asia. So then Allah azza wa jal reveals against the two of them that you want to be on, right. And of course, they are forgiven, they are our mothers. But to me to portray this picture, and to give the real image will lie to me, I can love and respect the process of even more, because he's now accessible to me, rather than to make him into a superhuman or something that as if he's not from this world as if he's a walking on Earth. No, he's a human being. And he has desires and those desires, he controlled them in a halal manner. And there's nothing

01:07:44 --> 01:08:24

wrong with satisfying one's desires in a halal manner. Our processor never committed a sin of that nature. And so here he has this, he does it, and it's understandable hafsa gets irritated at him. But as we said, Have Said took too much advantage. And so Allah subhana wa tada revealed that why would you make how long what Allah azza wa jal has made a lot. And so that is the story of Madea I forgot to mention. Maria lived for only four years, or maybe five years after the death of the prophet SAW Selim. And so she died relatively early, relatively young, in the life of a mobile hotspot, maybe the 16th, or the 15th year of the hero, she passed away, and are motivated, called

01:08:24 --> 01:08:55

Bob pray janaza for her, and they buried her and bulkier and therefore this shows us that she clearly converted to Islam, that there's no doubt she converted to Islam, she died a Muslim. When did she convert? I would assume she converted before the birth of Ibrahim, but this is just an assumption. Allah knows best. We don't know. I don't know for sure. And if anybody finds any details about this, then please benefit me in this regard. Any quick questions? We've gone beyond our mark. Any quick questions about my dear? Yes.

01:09:06 --> 01:09:08

It's not a husband, technically.

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

You understand?

01:09:15 --> 01:09:18

You understand? You don't understand? No.

01:09:21 --> 01:09:28

So the opposite the the husband and the wife form a couple. The Nikkei takes place. In this case, Maria is not a wife.

01:09:29 --> 01:09:35

Maria is a Medicare mean? Okay, so we just don't use the term husband.

01:09:36 --> 01:09:41

Okay, so when will she become free at the death of the owner?

01:09:49 --> 01:09:51

No, because then the guy there was no nikka

01:09:54 --> 01:10:00

there was no nikka it's not it's not a wife. That's why I'm saying you're a terminal.

01:10:00 --> 01:10:12

As incorrect, there was see this is the whole point. This is what you call a concubine. amilcare mean a llama Melaka a mannequin. So milkman has different rulings in Islam. And

01:10:15 --> 01:10:16

Madea was never

01:10:18 --> 01:10:20

a wife, no nikka was ever performed.

01:10:22 --> 01:10:25

Therefore, she is not considered to be a mother of the believers.

01:10:26 --> 01:10:38

She becomes free and nobody can marry her. Other otherwise, if any other unwanted was there, then somebody could marry. But because it's our process of nobody can marry her, but she's not a wife.

01:10:39 --> 01:10:41

Okay, any other quick questions?

01:10:43 --> 01:10:44

Going once going?

01:10:48 --> 01:11:04

Why did you not make up for Khadija for avatar that he made to our lives he did not accept for avatar? If so, it was other Allah and just because he's a process meters, he does not snap his fingers and say configure cone. Correct. And Allah says in the Quran, you're not going to be the father of any men. He knew the verse.

01:11:05 --> 01:11:13

He knew the verse and that's probably what he meant when he said, Were it not for the father of Allah. Maybe this is what his intention was. I knew this would happen, this will have it.

01:11:14 --> 01:11:16

Okay, inshallah, yes.

01:11:46 --> 01:11:52

I agree with you. But don't you agree with me that that's dangerous and modern times? Right.

01:11:54 --> 01:12:05

I see what you're saying. So it is an image that was created for you by your elders, by your Sunday school teachers. Yes. And be very frank here maybe 100 years ago?

01:12:06 --> 01:12:07

let it pass by.

01:12:08 --> 01:12:26

Right. No big deal. But I just think it is very dangerous, very dangerous, in our times, to have this false image. Because we are being bombarded and nothing is better than the truth.

01:12:27 --> 01:13:08

Nothing is better to defend than the truth. Sometimes the truth is a bit awkward. But honestly, all of the incidents today, I don't see it as being that awkward. Frankly. You know, it's something my new Shay things here and there. Nothing really at the character of the process of him himself. The issue of djawadi of milk. I mean, everybody did it. Everybody in human history. Nothing special for the processor. Okay, some things Madea did, okay, she wasn't a Muslim at the time, she was new, and it turned out to be false. Okay. I mean, you know, it's not affecting and then the issue of health says, Well, I mean, it's, he's a human being, it's had, you know, there's nothing there. That's

01:13:08 --> 01:13:27

that's that. So, it to me, this story is not as problematic as some one or two other ones. But nonetheless, people have different issues of what's problematic. So, I'd rather you hear it from me and we explained it in the proper manner, then gloss over it and then you know, face problems later Later on, shall we

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi now moves on to discuss the predicaments that were a part of the life of the Prophet ﷺ.

The major part of this lecture is focussed on yet another tragedy in the life of the Prophet ﷺ – the death of his son, Ibrahim. The mother of Ibrahim was Maria RA.

Who was Maria or Maria bint Shamun? She was gifted to the Prophet ﷺ by Juraih ibn Mina who was the king of Egypt. The reason for this gift was in reply to the letter that the Prophet ﷺ had sent him to convert to Islam. The king sent two sister slave girls – Maria and Sireen.

The Prophet ﷺ gifted Sireen to Hassan ibn Thabit RA and this union resulted in a son named Abdur Rahman ibn Hassan ibn Thabit.

Though the Prophet ﷺ was gifted Maria and she also bore the Prophet ﷺ a son, we do not as Muslims view her as a mother of the believers.the reason being she was a concubine initially, who when bore a son, got upgraded to the stature of Umm Walad. This meant that she was a wife to the Prophet ﷺ and her son was a valid inheritor of the possessions of the Prophet ﷺ. And, after the death of the Prophet ﷺ, she was free.

In Dhul Hijjah of the 8H, Maria gave birth to Ibrahim. But this happiness of the Prophet ﷺ was only short lived. Ibrahim lived for a year and four months only and sickness got the better of him. The Prophet SAW prayed his Janazah and he was buried in Jannatul Baqee where he remains till this day.

Numerous controversies and issues cropped up relating to Maria RA and a few make the cut in this lecture. Among them, is with regards to Aisha and Hafsa RA. what happened? Why were verses revealed in the Qur’an about this issue? What was the result of this issue? Shaykh Yasir Qadhi explains.
