00:00:10--> 00:00:19

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Karim brothers sisters salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.

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

carrying on with the life of La Casa de karate Allah and who last week we spoke about how worker gave the Dawa. How knockout of the Allah and who was beaten for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Here we want to speak about how a broker dealer who protected the message of Allah license through thick and thin through war and peace he was at the side of the province where nobody else was at the side of the province and Lola as the man who was always at the side of the message of Allah sallallahu alayhi salam so earlier the a lot of one day he's speaking to a group

00:01:02--> 00:01:51

and he speaking about the bravery of Abubakar Siddique or the Allahu anhu. And then he recalled a particular incident now I will anyway, if you remember is quite young when he embraces Islam. But he says that one day, the Matura key they surrounded the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam by the GABA, and they began to hit him, push him and insult him and assault him. So he says that they were a group of Sahaba a group of Muslims there, no body moved forward. Why? Because they were scared, there was more the number and this is all of a sudden Abu Bakar the Atlanta came rushing, he punched one he pushed one he struck another person. And he says that do you fight against a man who says

00:01:51--> 00:02:40

that Allah is his Lord? This is all he says. You know all he's calling you towards Allah subhanho wa Taala do you fight assault a man who just saying this? And then the narration mentioned that earlier the Allah who took his cloth and replaced it over his head and he began to cry until his bead became drenched. The interesting thing is obviously this is not the alarm. It's always claimed early. Ma'am some didn't like a robot karate karate alarm and then look at the words look at the water testimony he gives is it tell me what is in this state? Why it is crying? Why it's he's got the cloth over his head. He's saying tell me is the more mean of the family affair own better or is Abubakar syndicate.

00:02:41--> 00:02:56

Better now who is the Mormon of the family of your own? This is the man when musala salatu salam shook the keep the the cop and the cop died. And then the next day you know there was a another incident

00:02:57--> 00:03:29

and Musa alayhis salaam gets angry at the Israelites and he says to him, you know, is this a daily occurrence with you always getting into a fight? So Mozart gets angry at him and he said, Do you want to kill me like you killed the cop yesterday. Now until then nobody knew who had killed the count. So now when this happened, this news reached around. So now they had decided that they were going to kill Musa alayhis salam. So Allah Subhana Allah Allah mentioned in the Quran, where Allah gentlemen axela Medina t yes

00:03:30--> 00:03:59

vokalia Moosa in the mela yet Tammy Runa Becca Jaco Luke. So the mentions that Jia Jia gentlemen Axel Medina TSR. A man comes from the side the outskirts of the city. Why the outskirts of the city because generally the Kings actually lived on the outsides outskirts of the city. That's where their palaces were. So it's easy for them to escape if there was a attack on the city. So he comes in he says to

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

moose iray salatu salam, he says, Musa you know, the leaders the rosov, the Council of your own have decided that they're going to kill you.

00:04:11--> 00:04:30

So I am giving you an A C handout for rich leave the city, you know, don't hang around here. So here is a question is it tell me is that person better? Who came to save moose is not a slob? Or is Abu Bakar better?

00:04:32--> 00:04:59

Is that I swear by Allah, if the dunya was filled with men like that person from the family of your own. Abu Bakar is one hour in the life of America is better than that. That the entire dunya is filled with people of that kind although who's a believer? One hour in the life of bucket is better than that. Why is it because a bucket never hit is a man he hit his ima abubaker never shied away

00:05:00--> 00:05:10

Abu Bakar was always at the forefront, another incident where abubaker the alarm who came to the rescue of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was when a automobile be more

00:05:11--> 00:05:17

occupied, or be more It was a great enemy of Islam. Do you actually was a relation of aasmaan or the alarm?

00:05:20--> 00:06:01

The Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah is walking past and he grabs the Prophet sallallahu ala leaves with the sheet around the profit and loss of his neck. And he begins to strangle the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And who comes again, abou buck, who abubaker the weak bodied one, the thin one, and he comes in he defends the professor mobile, I said and he says to him exactly what he said at the first incident. So abubaker The olara was always with the profits and losses, never hit his mark, always at the forefront, to protect the message of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam when the persecution in Makkah became quite unbearable, what the Messenger of Allah

00:06:01--> 00:06:45

sallallahu alayhi wasallam did is that he allowed the Sahaba the Allah and him to migrate. So where did they migrate first? The first place where the Muslims migrated was ever since the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said go to Abyssinia why, because they his American Idol, they will know he was a Christian the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam defined him as American Idol. He just King so a group of Muslims they migrate them. After a while boca de la undertakes permission permission from the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam to migrate. So now boubakeur, the alarm goes, so he's now traveling, he's traveled approximately five days towards Yemen and then he's going to catch

00:06:45--> 00:07:31

a ferry over to Abyssinia and he meets a man called abou Davina abou Davina says to boubakeur when you go in your bucket, what God says, you know, we're Muslims. And our goal, they torture us, a persecutors live amongst our people is very difficult now, and we've decided to migrate. And some of us have already migrated and I am going to migrate Abu Dhabi and I goes, No, no, no, the likes of you. You know, you should never be exiled from your people. You know, you you are a person who that people pray should be fortunate that they have people like you. And then very interesting, literally the same words, which Khadija rhodiola and I use for the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam when she

00:07:31--> 00:07:57

spoke about them when the first revelation descended in Mecca latos. This law was local law, taxable madu to the end, literally, exactly the same words, Abu Dhabi and I use it for Abu Bakar Abu Bakar. How can they exile you? You know, you're a person who helps those who nobody else is ready to help. So he says to welcome you come back with me.

00:07:58--> 00:08:44

And you will return to your people under my protection. Now what did I mean? See they had this concept of ermine at that time where a person gave you protection, then nobody would violate that protection. If he violated that protection. If somebody violated a protection then that would mean that they're at war with this person. Now Abu Davina was the leader of a tribe called bunny para bunny. Kala was a well known tribe. So basically if they violated the protection of abou Davina, that means that they weren't at war with a boondocking. So a Buddha says to him, come come with me and I will give you protection so you could WinZip so he takes you back to Croatia and he said how

00:08:44--> 00:09:32

can you exile a man like Abu Bakar abubaker was a person who was already loved by individuals, how can you exiled him? He said, he said, I will give the protection to abubaker. Nobody lays a finger of ibaka so the operations fine a Buddha we respect you, that's fine. But on one condition that I will vulgar, doesn't give an open dour now they knew what was dangerous. You know, every worker went out and he started converting everybody they knew what aboubakar was like. So that was what was agreed that abubaker will not give an open down. So buckle up the Alon who stays at home, no doubt. A few days elapse. And then Abu Bakar of the land now is giving no explicit that our body starts to

00:09:32--> 00:09:34

implicit thou.

00:09:35--> 00:09:59

In the courtyard of his house, he would read the Quran. Now the narration mentioned when Abubakar delana would read the Quran, he had a very beautiful voice, but not only did he have a beautiful voice in a very soft heart, so when he would read the Quran, he would cry often. Now the women and the children began to listen to a book the recitation of Quran

00:10:00--> 00:10:22

These were people of language they knew that the Quran was a special book. And then when you had a person with like a bucket of the Allah, I know reading the Quran, you know, often when you're taught the sweet, they say will say that the piece of good more or less, he will say that I'm going to teach you to read in a manner that when you read the code ad, you love the code. So it's not just a

00:10:23--> 00:10:27

nice voice, but it actually is rendered from the heart.

00:10:28--> 00:10:43

Can you imagine what I will walk around reciting the Quran? So he so the women and the children, they will come and listen to me talk about the alarm. So boubakeur is reading the Quran is no open door just in the courtyard of his house.

00:10:44--> 00:11:26

The bull[???]ter can get very concerned about this. So then they send a message to Abu Dhabi, and they say, look, we accepted your Amman your protection but now this is what's happening and is impacting women and children. So now abou Davina comes back, and he speaks to Abubakar on the line and he says, Look, I've given you know my protection and if anybody violates by a protection that they violated, you know, there's something very sacred and then I end up going to war with them. So please stop this downward, you know, stop reciting the Quran abubaker rather Allah was Abu Bakar he said Abu Abu Davina, he said, I appreciate your protection. But now from your protection, I move

00:11:26--> 00:11:28

into the protection of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:11:29--> 00:12:06

So move into the protection of Allah subhanaw taala very interesting thing is here is that you know, this house move the turkey of money mentions, however, the hola there in the late 60s, this house was preserved where abogado de la will recite the Quran. And it was a place for more on how appropriate that you know, children would memorize the Quran in this place. This is I've sold this house myself and in the late 60s and it was preserved and it was a madrasa for the Quran no longer it no longer exists.

00:12:08--> 00:12:24

Another thing which happened in the marking period was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a marriage with eyeshadow, the elanco obviously eyeshadow the Allah and he was the daughter of Abubakar acidic or the alarm.

00:12:26--> 00:12:27

Now in the 10th year,

00:12:28--> 00:12:32

of the dour, her deja vu the alarm ha passes away.

00:12:33--> 00:13:20

Now Khadija the alarm her was the most beloved wife of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam well, as long as Khadija was alive, the Messenger of Allah never married a another woman. He had immense love for collegiality, Allah, you can understand this look. The progress and loss of love Ayesha, yet, is well known that she was his most beloved wife. But I share the alarm ha says that out of all the wives of the Prophet SAW Allah and he was alone. The wife that I was the most jealous of was Khadija. All the other wives were alive. There was only one wife which was dead, Khadija she was more jealous of the one who was dead rather than those who are actually living. Why, what's the

00:13:20--> 00:13:33

reason for this? Because see Khadija the Allah I'm ha sacrus for advice for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam to the degree that her and Abu Bakar have a special status.

00:13:34--> 00:13:38

I will speak about this in Charlotte later on. But let me just give you one example.

00:13:41--> 00:13:52

I shall the Allah says that the prophets Allah would always remember the teacher. So one day there's a knock on the door and the Messenger of Allah from the voice in the knock he recognizes the sister

00:13:53--> 00:14:06

of Hadith he says Allah Maha Allah, so Allah allow it to be holla, the sister of Khadija the allarakha, I just say is, you know, envy Ray, the better of me.

00:14:08--> 00:14:28

And I said to the Messenger of Allah, I said, O Messenger of Allah, when will you stop remembering this old woman of Quraysh she was so old, that her gums were red, meaning her teeth had fallen out. And now Allah has given you better than a meaning he's given you young wives. He was an old woman, you know, stop remembering her.

00:14:30--> 00:14:40

So the prophet SAW Omar and he was upset. He became angry. And he said, Oh Ayesha, by Allah, Allah never gave me better than the teacher

00:14:41--> 00:14:44

said she believed in me when nobody else believed in me.

00:14:46--> 00:14:58

She took me in when all others shun me, she spent on me when nobody else was ready to spend on me. And she is the only wife which I have children by Allah. Allah never gave me better than

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

so

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

She had a special status with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam but she passes away in the 10th year and this is known as

00:15:10--> 00:15:45

the year of grief in the life of the Prophet Salah Salem while Khadija passed away and also Abu Talib to protection of the Messenger of Allah have passed away in this year. So the problem is a lot a lot so it was very upset. So a lady is a Javier called Hola. She was the wife of Othmani of NEMA a Loon. rhodiola. And if you remember, as Monica, Mr. Luna, I mentioned him earlier and he was one of the people who embraced Islam, on the hands of Abu Bakar. He was the one who passed away in the Messenger of Allah kissed his forehead and did the dunya has not touched you, and you did not touch the dunya

00:15:47--> 00:15:55

his wife, seeing the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi Salaam in this stage, she came to the Messenger of Allah says that a messenger of Allah, you know, you should re marry.

00:15:57--> 00:16:23

And he said, and she said to him, that there are women out there I have a woman in mind, one is a virgin and one is, is a widow. You decide what children one is a total virgin. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said you approach both of them. Now the virgin out of these two so one was sold out of the Illa Anna ha, she was the one who was a widow, and the other one who was a virgin was I shout out the

00:16:24--> 00:16:28

now so she so he said go and approach them.

00:16:30--> 00:17:03

So she goes and approaches aboubaker on the Eliana, but there was a customer amongst the Arabs at that time that you never married the daughter of your brother now, although he wasn't his true brother, but he was his brother. You know, they were brothers. So this was the customer of the Arabs. So we walk around the Londo had that in mind. So the Prime Minister masala reassured him that this is a custom of the Arab is not a a Shetty, hokum is nothing to do with the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:17:06--> 00:17:57

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married, I shall have the alarm on 500 their dowry, I shall have the Allah and Allah once asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam should you marry me? Did you marry me out to your own accord or was a command from Allah subhanho wa Taala the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I saw you in a dream. Two to three nights. You will you were enveloped in a a silk cloth. And I was told in that dream that this is your wife in the dunya and the aka. So now in this in the dunya, the dunya and the hell. So this is how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married Isaiah about the Allah Allah, Allah, Allah and i would say i the

00:17:57--> 00:18:09

Messenger of Allah married me in show while and he consummated the marriage in Ramadan, who from amongst you can compete with me now this marriage award? Why because you are married chawan Why would they marriage? Well,

00:18:10--> 00:18:39

because a plate there was a plague. And because of that plague which took place in show all the Arab Mary in chawan. So her status, be married the professor listen to Mr. Waller message, I wanted to break this custom. And then he consummated the marriage and Ramadan. Now there is a huge controversy here. What was the age of eyeshadow of the Allah on her when she married?

00:18:40--> 00:18:47

The two opinions here really six, seven or seven or 16 or 17?

00:18:50--> 00:19:05

Let me briefly This is not i'm not rendering a comprehensive kind of overview of the ages etc. But I will touch on it briefly. So for those who say that the age is 70 What's the delay?

00:19:06--> 00:19:37

Firstly they say that in the hijab Rahim Allah and Amanda Rahim Allah, they both say that the age of a SMA when she migrated was 27. And they also mentioned that she was 10 years older than I shall the Allah and so because of this, therefore they say that I shall have the law and I must be 17 years old. Also. as smart as the alarm have passed away at the age of 73.

00:19:38--> 00:19:39

And

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

she was approximately 100 years old at that time. Now if you take all the dates into consideration they say that makes it about the Alanna 17 when she got married, the secondary that they give is that some historians they say, say that I share the alarm ha

00:20:00--> 00:20:16

Was she was born on the fifth, the fourth or the fifth year of the Islamic calendar, sorry, sorry, the the fifth, fourth or fifth year after, after the call after the Tao of Islam. Now,

00:20:18--> 00:20:24

the same historian also mentioned that she was one of the earliest to embrace Islam.

00:20:25--> 00:20:44

I can't be both if he's only five or six years old, and how can she embrace Islam? Okay, cuz she's No, she's not McAuliffe. You know, it's not for the foreigner to embrace his love of nature. He also mentioned as one of the earliest individuals who embrace Islam. So they say this,

00:20:45--> 00:21:13

because she was too young to embrace Islam. So how did these historians counter from those who were early to embrace Islam? They said, because the simple reason is because she wasn't actually that he was 10 years older than that. Now, then, what about the Buhari generation which says he was 16 Express generation? Well, they say that the Asha is missing in that generation, the 10 is missing in that region. Okay. The other thing,

00:21:14--> 00:21:56

when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came back from bife, he asked the people for protection, nobody gave him protection besides a man called a motive, ad. Now motive. It was one of the leaders of Quraysh the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said in his virtue, he passed away before the Battle of butter, but he said if he was still alive today, and he asked me to release all the prisoners that we have, I would release them if he had said, but he was dead by that time. Now motivate. Addy gave protection to Professor Lawson because this was the 10th year of Islam. Abu Talib had died, he had no protection. He went to the people of five one to give them power, but

00:21:56--> 00:22:33

secondly also to take protection from them. And then they gave no protection. Then he asked them Don't tell the people of Makkah that you didn't give me protection. They The first thing they did is informed the people of Makkah now because the Messenger of Allah had no protection from anybody how it worked was that anybody could attack him. So he goes back into Mecca, and he asked the people of MCAD for protection and modem evening he came to his protection. And he told his children to stand around the guard by the corners of GABA, and the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam came in and then he gave him protection. Now

00:22:34--> 00:22:42

the narration mentioned the eyeshadow the Allah anha was engaged to one of the children of motif in the name would you pay?

00:22:43--> 00:22:54

Now Jubail was one of the youngest is one of the children of multimedia ad who came to the Kaaba to give the prophets Allah some protection. They say

00:22:55--> 00:23:10

that means he wasn't a young boy, he wasn't like a shadow, the olana he was actually quite an age. So they deduce from that, that I shall have the alarm who was also not a young age but she was 17 years old or you know, older than which is prescribed.

00:23:13--> 00:23:25

Also, if you look at the narration when a whole lot of the alarm ha she said to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, she said there is a option of a woman who's a widow and a virgin. She didn't say six years

00:23:26--> 00:23:31

old, okay? Also motivate the ad.

00:23:32--> 00:23:33

When

00:23:34--> 00:23:36

the promise Allah subhanaw taala

00:23:37--> 00:23:44

Hola, rhodiola. I'm not to go and speak to PO box out of the Atlanta. Now the boubakeur, the Illa, Allah said that I have to speak to the family of Mati.

00:23:45--> 00:24:08

So they went and they spoke to the family and moved him and moved him his wife said, we don't want your daughter anyway because you're Muslims and we are concerned that your daughter will convert our son into a Muslim. Now, what I deduce from this is that if she was only six years old, there was no chance that she would be able to convert anybody.

00:24:10--> 00:24:20

So taking these and few other DeLisle into consideration, this is the Delete of those who say the Ayesha was 17 years old when she married the prophet SAW more Muslims.

00:24:21--> 00:24:59

Now those who say that she was six, when the marriage took place, and nine when the marriage was consummated, the bukharin region, which is the strongest nation out of all these, that she was six and the marriage was consummated at the age of nine. Also, they say you have to take in consideration the environment of the time, it was actually a norm, and those days for girls who get married at a very young age. If you look at the life of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, the Messenger of Allah was called a Go ahead, call the Sharia court.

00:25:00--> 00:25:15

The PSA here, you know all the names that they could place upon him, you know, a sorcerer, a liar, all sorts, but nobody ever claimed or put a blame upon him that he married somebody who was underage.

00:25:16--> 00:25:53

Even john of Damascus who claimed that the province of masala married the the divorce wife of Zaid was his adopted son. He claimed this he said, Look, this was wrong. This was a slum. How can he married is he wanted to marry her. That's why he got his adopted son to divorce her. Even him and others were looking for the mind new testing. Never ever claim that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ever married a girl who was under age Why? Because it was a norm at the time. Now let me give you a few other additional statistics. According to Roman law,

00:25:55--> 00:26:07

you could marry a Roman law you could marry at the age of 12 and above, okay, according to saili law, which was the Frankish law and Hebrew law,

00:26:09--> 00:26:33

a girl was allowed to marry as long as she could give birth to a longer she started a menses, and that couldn't be as early as nine years old, she was allowed to consummate the marriage. Okay. Now from surviving Roman records, it's mentioned that 8% of Roman girls would marry under the age of 10 and 11.

00:26:34--> 00:27:12

Age of 1011 8% of girls, even as late as 1861. So in 1861, they had a census of two counties in the UK, which is just over 150 years ago, that more than 350 girls now 1400 years ago, 350 years ago, 40 350 girls got married under the age of 50. In just one single year. Some commentators mentioned that Mary, yeah, Maria Melissa Salam was actually married at the age of 10.

00:27:13--> 00:27:15

So So Pamela,

00:27:16--> 00:27:52

why the why, why the hypocrisy, your forefathers were all doing it. Why in the last 1400 years, you could only find one individual person that you could point a finger out the duration in all honesty, I personally believe that the Muslims have nothing to answer for it was a norm within a society, all societies did it a just that they wanted to pinpoint somebody. And the very interesting thing was that for 1400 years, nobody discussed this just last century or so.

00:27:53--> 00:28:15

People have began to discuss it Why? Because the norms in the West changed in relationship to marriage just the last 100 years so so therefore, you know, everybody was doing it was fine until everybody was doing it when now they change. Now they want to kind of super impose their values upon people 1400 years ago,

00:28:16--> 00:28:30

that inshallah we'll finish off there on this note insha Allah May Allah Subhana Allah elevate the status of ibaka silica de la bella hamdallah Kiba hard together. salaam aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh.
