Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala CD mursaleen Maulana Muhammad wa ala early he was hi Biggie woman. Hassan yo yo Medina robot,
Okay, last lesson we
briefly touched on how Abubakar Guardiola and who was chosen as the Salif in this Akiva bodyside. Okay.
I want to start off here dealing with a few narrations which are somewhat controversial and a few issues which are somewhat controversial. So they are narrations where basis basically, which indicate towards the fact that a Sahabi called Assad Avada or the Allah and who did not give Bayer to Abu Bakr Siddiq karate Allah right. Now if you remember Southern Oba was that Sahabi who was wrapped up in the cloth and the Tsar, we're gonna choose him as the leader.
Now, in the Hulu, the Hulu is the famous historian and the sociologist. If Nicole Dumas Kamala says if this duration established was disputed, said even if the duration is established that he did not give Bayer to Abubakar Sadiq rhodiola said it makes no difference. Why? Because everybody else on the ansata gave Bayer to Abubakar Sadiq. rhodiola now, you know, two people don't agree on anything nowadays. Yeah, especially a leader. So if all the unsavoury did give the Bayer and one Sahabi saddam Ababa did not give the obeya in the solution it makes no difference. That's one topic. The other issue is an issue of narration which is related by
a mom debris and others that
probably Monza who was Ansari, and Omar Naka, Barbara, the law dispute took place between them. And that dispute was so severe that they were actually about to stop fighting. Okay. Now
there are two narrators in this chain of transmission of this narration one is called a sham and the other one is called a boombox enough both of them are regarded as she so do you understand how it works? Now, let me let me explain something this is a very important assume for you to actually understand historical durations. See, what the historians would do is that early historians they would gather the narrations with the chain of transmission. So they will present they will gather all of them and they will regard zamana and they would put them in their book with the chain transmission. What they obviously expected a scholars and those who are reading the books is that
they would wear a fi the chain of transmission. Unfortunately, what's happened especially now is that people look into the books like debris and etc story historical works and they no longer look at the chain of transmission they look at the duration and any duration, which fits their disposition which they like, which fits their aqeedah or the manner which they take it wholesale without actually looking into the channel transmission, the orientalist do it the others who want to you know, prove something which is according to their beliefs. Now, this causes and issues when the historians gathered these books, they actually never thought anybody would do this. So now you have
this narration you have many different channel transmissions of this narration, but you have one which has a sham, Abu McAnuff, and both of them the smile region, the men of the jungle have said that they are narrators who have Shia inclination so you understand
it would be a vested interest for them to make this an issue you know, answer this additional portion look, in a day to day life.
You always want the background of the person who said the statement so hey,
so somebody says a statement you say what's his background? What's her background?
Because you want to where if I do they have any biases Do they have any leanings which could actually sway their opinions or, or make them bias as a consequence. So now this we're talking about the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Here we talk about daddy so people
had their own vested interests. So this is what assumed that we should actually always remember when we study history.
So that's, that's that eration Now regarding Abubakar syndicate on the alarm abubaker the alarm never wanted the philosopher, the Abubakar, the Alanna made it quite clear that he didn't want the slavery even if even there is a hotma Boubacar who says that I never ever wanted leadership any day or any night. He says I had no desire regarding it. Never did I ask Allah subhanaw taala regarding secrecy or an open, you know, no Diwan terminado desire. Yeah, well, a kidney extracto mineral fitna, but the only reason I took it on board was the I fear that they would be strife amongst the Muslims, they will be division amongst the Muslims. And then he goes on to say, he said, I have
taken this. These are the birds this huge bird or this burden has been placed upon me. And I do not have the ability to fulfill the right way unless Allah Subhana Allah grants me that the kuwata strength and then he goes on to say, he said I wished somebody who was more stronger than me would take this post. They say he was referring to either Omar or Aveda to pujara rhodiola and
so this was Abubakar city Columbia Law he never ever wanted to take the many times he actually said you know, allow me to give up the Halawa somebody else take the post of helaba but everybody said no, there is nobody better than you for this post. Now, another issue of great controversy
and the reality is not that big of an issue but it's made a big issue is when did earlier the Allah give Bayer to Abubakar silica. So there's two generations
behind Buhari Muslim mentioned that he gave Bayer six months after Abubakar the alarm to became the Salif. So when Abubakar became the carrier six months later, after the demise of automatic the alarm ha, he gave the Bayer these other narrations two days after the initial beta in the suceava Vanessa either
Abubakar acidic of the AMA and who now went to the masjid Omar or the Ilana told him to ascend the pulpit he wouldn't he said he said the pope is essentially the pulpit and he said on the pulpit and now there was a general payer now everybody gave him bear. So the duration mentioned and this is related by Imam Hakeem and Mr. Duck that he looked in the audience and he didn't say earlier of the Allah Allah so you call for a leader of the Allah. So Allah the ANU came and he said to Elisa Ali do not divide the ranks of the Muslims and all those who were in a bomb or the alarm and both of them on that occasion gave the Bayer okay so you know, you got one narration which mentions six months
one narration which mentions the second day in his operation the first day, they gave him the bed when he took the general bail. Now,
let me point out a few things here. Firstly,
there is one narration and this may be slightly technical, there's one narration which speaks about him giving Bayer the second day and this one
which is six months later, now, January the soul in a solo Hadeeth is that the most bit narration will be given preference over that which is the nafi meaning that which affirms will be given preference over that which indicates why because those who were there
so a lot of the a lot of giving back is a possibility that those who said he didn't give bail one there. And when all we're not aware of it, you understand.
So therefore, it's something which affirm takes preference of that which negates let me give you an example. Another example, on the first day Makkah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam went into the Kaaba, so some Sahaba were asked did the Prophet Salah Salem pray to rock out in the carpark
Some said he did some said he did it.
So what they say that those who said he did will take preference over those who said he didn't because it's a strong possibility that those who said he didn't work there at that very moment when he prayed the two cups
and obviously those who said he did obviously saw him. So similarly, those who said that earlier the a lot no gay bear on this
Today we're there to say that he gave Bayer Okay. Now also
the narration of eyeshadow the alarm who says that he gave six months later they say maybe I shudder the alarm didn't know.
You know that was
that was the her knowledge of it. So what about then there are narration that he actually gave six months later. So they say that he gave the one early on. And then he gave one six months later because there were always rumors that he hadn't given bail.
And to quash the beta, he gave a beta again six months later. Now, that's one thing.
Okay, let's say let's say for argument's sake, let's say he only gives beta six months later.
Even if he only gave Bayer six months later, he still gave payer
The issue is done and dusted.
And the fact that he gave six months, Bayer six months later, actually is a clear indication that maybe he thought that he actually made a mistake therefore he gave the bear Do you understand?
He thought I should have given a bear earlier on the time that he gave us six months later. You know, he wanted to re address a possible wrong if we take the argument still gay payer
Is that clear?
if you make a really big issue of this like some people unfortunately do, you know, they make a real big issue. Oh,
and he didn't give Bayer Oh, Lee gave Bayer six months later look bleep
do we do we believe that the hell off of Olli is established on automatically question Do we? Everybody agrees when Oliver the aleinu became ameerul momineen and he took Bayer many of the Sahaba did not give bear to him initially. He will complain that what you guys come and give me a bear but the buddy Sahaba do not give up and I will deal with this inshallah when I do go over the life of Allah and okay 200,000 Muslims in Sham did not get paid to alira the
Arab people didn't give back to him.
Hejaz people didn't give back to him many many places of the Muslim world Egypt they didn't compare to him. So now does anybody for one moment say that the hell out of Ali is not justified or legitimate. Does anybody say this? No, we say he's hella phi is legitimate and then people make the issue Oh, but you know look at this
and he didn't give him your own book say he gave me bass six months later he had his book he gave he gave it to him later he gave better sorry, okay. Others claim
he actually was forced to give the beta and he gave the beta otherwise he would have never gave bear. So listen to this. This is early now let me give you a bit of background Elliot of the learner and I inshallah this again, I will deal more detail later on inshallah, who is Ali. Ali is that man who fought the greatest duel in the history of Islam against Ahmed Abdullah would they say I'm ready Underwood was the undisputed warrior amongst the Arabs. They say when children wouldn't go to sleep, their mothers would say go sleep. I'm worried that Underwood will come. They say he was equal to 100 people on the Battle of Zab Allah, Allah No. 14, ali was regarded as one of the bravest harbor Ivana
Okay, now here's the argument. The argument is the earlier of the Allah and mu in the time a bucket gave bear because he was forced in a time over a bear because he was forced in the time of man he gave bad because he was forced. Let me give you a few comparisons here
are smart and they are fond of the Allah and who was not a warrior. No compared to Ali and hardly been bullied.
He was a warrior, you know, no way in his biography Do you find that you know, he stood out in a battle.
And he was known to be a warrior Ali was known for his bravery was Marlin alpha was besieged for 14 days.
And there was 40 days they stabbed him. They stopped his water. They abused him for not one
Moment do we hate the last one ever said that I am going to give up the hell off because I've got men see besieging no to one moment that was a smart phone. If that was a smart ID now father do we believe that earlier the Illa Allah would have been forced to give the khilafah to give the beta
let me give you another example.
Hussein the son of earlier the aleinu goes to unlock so the people of LR can give based on his hands he is martyred
his family is martyred you know a huge number of the outlaw bait are mastered did the son of Le the Lion of Allah for one moment say no I'm not going he went to take what he believed what he believed there is no muss there is no text which says that Hussein or the Allah who was meant to be the next Calif but why he believed that he had the right over he was ready to die for it. Those who claim that he should be the next Calif say that they were the text indicating to the fact that it shouldn't have been the callee if that is the case, that why did he take his right do you understand the comparison and he was really the warrior.
The warrior who stood out amongst the greatest warriors of our D the Sahaba one of mine
when I you know when I look I think so Pamela speaking like that regarding me, you know, the oldest I see him is I see belittling the status of the grandeur earlier of the alarm. Let me move on to
the next the next point.
For those who claim that earlier the alarm who should have been the Halley's because he was the closest to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam then the argument is this. Who was closer alley, or a bus who was closer? A bus is the uncle of the province. I'm Omar lucilla.
Then close then you have Fatima She was the daughter of the province and Lola lesson and then you have Hasson then you have Hussein actually in order
to come what number five.
The Sudanese did better they made him number four.
If you say in law wise, well as the man was closer, he was older he was married to two daughters of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and Ileana the olara who was married to the youngest daughter of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So is that clear? So these kinds of issues when you look at the menu scrutinize them.
You see so Pamela Abubakar acidic about the law. I know a few people may have disputed if they disputed regarding his hollyford but you show me one person really show me one person who everybody unites upon nobody.
People can unite upon in the families and you have the entirety of the amfar unite on Abu Bakr, Siddiq rhodiola and who you have the absolute bait. Most you can say the most you can say that six months later they gave Bayer to the most you can say
but they still gave back to him or the Mourinho and understand, look, those who make this real big issue that the Tsar were unhappy or hubbub, Nemanja was unhappy, they were almost about to fight, then the question is, who were the majority?
The majority in Medina were the unsolved, not the more Haji rune. If they wanted to usurp the hollyford forcefully, they could have done it any day because they were the majority. They didn't and this is a credit to the unsub pipe.
If you say that Abu Bakar the alumna you served the Halawa from the bunny Hashem because he belonged to bunny who did he belong to the bunny?
anything good? He belonged to the bunny thing bunny thing we're a small tribe. They are some narrations, which is it mentioned that Abu Sufyan he came to Allah The Allah ammo, which are not really established but let's for argument's sake, accept them.
And he said to him, he said look, we because they were the bunny omiya when he had the shops, they were huge. And then a very harsh word large number. He said How is it possible that the smallest tribe amongst the Arab the bunny, they can take the Halle foot if you want to ollie we will join with you and we will drive them out
earlier of the
Elon Musk said no thank
Allah freedom. So even if we don't regard this generation as established, even if you take it as established, then the credit led alarm could have been a day more small in number compared to the bunny of the shrimps and the bunny Hashem. If they wanted to forcefully usurp it from them and take it from them, they could, but they didn't take it from them because they realized that Abu Bakar acidic or the olara was the rightful leader. Now I want you to I want to also go back now to
Abubakar Siddique are the olana when he spoke to the Tsar, and many scholars have written upon this, the Abu Bakar the alarm whose ability and his people skills.
See abubaker the learner came in to that gathering and the answer are praising themselves. Now barbagallo the alarm who had in his back of mind he knew the ratio with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that leadership will stay in the crush. And the ministers will be unsolved. But you see how Abubakar Allah who came in?
He didn't say straightaway, here's the narration No.
Omar wanted to say something he said come down over Let me speak Why could Allah said Ahmed was Omar You know, I'm one of my you know, said something which may actually provoked the situation. How did he start? And then this is something that we should always we should always understand that you know, sometimes we get this thing that Oh no, I need to speak the truth. Bang Bang Bang Bang, nope.
He first praised the answer.
He praised the answer. He said when you said you are more than that. You are more than what you actually said about yourself. And then he actually added some additional virtues and then he told them about the statement of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam that leadership will stay in court Ah, your thesis Muhammad Allah These are the people skills of Abu Bakar about the Allah. Okay.
Now, let's move on to abubaker as the Calif Is there any verses in the Quran or any Hadith explicit regarding Abu Bakr Siddiq.
Now let me mention a few verses and then we'll come to the argument or the discussion of is it explicit or implicit indication to the candidate Now as I mentioned earlier on
seed of the word NSL auto mister keep salata Latina and I'm gonna lay him right in Dubai Allah balling okay those people are lost pound Allah has favored upon Allah subhanho wa Taala says in another place while those favors people at our last panel Dallas fevered upon for Allah, Allah Allah Dena and I'm alone I mean in the beginning it was sedated. Yeah. So this the Alomar say this is the commentary of that verse. They are those people who Allah subhanho wa Taala has favored upon what disabled people maybe Allah says first the newbies, the MBR the profits, then Allah says next was to detail out of all the sidiki the greatest Siddique was Abubakar syndicate. Now with the demise of
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam What happened? The end of the Buddha the Buddha finished, they will no no be to come after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So if you look at the, the verse, first you have Nabhi then you have Siddiq. Then you have the martyrs and then you have the pious. So from that the status next to the newbies is this updated, out of all the city again the greatest detail was who Abu Bakar speaker of the Allah and who, therefore he they say implicitly from the verse, you take out the meaning that Abubakar was the next rightly, clearly. Is that clear?
Also in the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah verse number 54, you Latina manomaya income and D. Fi Sophia Tila, who be an omen. You hit the home where you hit buena, okay, now, here, Allah Subhana Allah says, Oh you believe those who turn away from the D. Okay, those who turn away from the deep. Allah will bring a group of people that Allah loves them, they love Allah subhanho wa Taala Is that clear? Now you will see
many people turned away from the deed after the demise of the prophets Allah Allah Allah he was and then Allah subhanho wa Taala compliments these people or last one Darla says that they are people who
We are humble in front of other believers humility, take humility and in front of other believers there are strong against the disbelievers. They do jihad in the path of Allah subhanaw taala and they don't care about the blaming of the blamers Okay. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala says
this Veronica follow up, he may Yesha and that is the fallen and the grace of Allah Subhana Allah Allah grants it to whoever whoever he wishes. Now has an A bursary says that you know who these people were, when people turned away from the DEA, and who fought against them. He say that these were the people who were with Abu Bakar speaker. So Allah had already mentioned in the Quran, that that these people would come and they would fight against the disbelievers. And he say that they were the believers who fought alongside Abu Bakar Delano and therefore if Allah loves them, and they love Allah, then what about the leader?
So this is also a no explicit but implicit indication to the Caliph of Abu Bakar. Or the alarm. Thirdly,
Allah subhana wa dalisay 30th naini is homophilic
the second, the second, okay, one was they were in the second of the two worlds they were in the cave, Mr. McCall to be safe, who the second of the two aboubaker was the Allah to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam in another nation. When he Abubakar de la Lu became very worried what did the Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam say? Mother no cubby named a low thigh lift alma obok what do you think about the two meaning as to when Allah is authored nothing, nobody can touch us. Imam Kirby says here in this first, the second of the two was they were in the cave meaning Abu Bakar will be the highly sought after the Prophet sallallahu sallam. This is an implicit indication that the that
the province Abubakar What the
what did Mr. Say do the allama say that there is explicit indication in the Hadees no explicit which regarding aboubaker no doubt that ibaka de Landa will be the next Calif or are the implicit that you know indications.
Thou the diary
is of the opinion that the narrations regarding him regarding Abubakar of the law and who are explicit, clear cut, they refer to nobody other than him.
others are of the opinion. They're no they are implicit. They're not explicit. Now one of the main narration that they used for those who say they're explicit and narration where a woman came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and she said a message of Allah if I come again and you are not here, who do I go to? messenger Allah said,
the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Abubakar, so the Lama say look, those who say explicit they say look, the Messenger of Allah said Abu Bakar Allah Abu Bakar would be in charge. Okay.
Also, other narrations which mentioned that
it should be Abubakar, all the land regeneration related by Imam Muslim minister he way the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to eyeshadow the Ilana call your father and your brother, so I can write for them. So no other people who are hopeful in the Halawa will be hopeful after it. Many of you will be clear cut. And then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
Allah and the believers will accept nobody besides
Allah the believers will
accept nobody besides
Abubakar acidic rhodiola and hope. Okay, now the question arises This is a narration in a Muslim.
Why now the Sudanese make a big horror about this, because those narrations which indicate towards earlier the alarm who others makes such a big hoo ha, because in all honesty for the Sudanese is not a fundamental of the belief Alhamdulillah Abubakar was chosen, Allah chose him. It's not so fundamental to our belief that Abu Bakar had to be thing for others is actually fundamental to the entire religion
is fundamental the alira the law
Nowhere to be it's kind of it's a key the issue. Do you understand?
Okay, another narration
where the Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam saw a dream we actually we've done this narration where the problems are lost Adam said I saw the dream and I saw boubakeur the alarm taking out a couple of buckets of water. Yeah, and he did it weekly, and then came on board the lotto and then he hit he took it out strongly.
So Mr. Shafi Rahim Allah says that this is an indication that the her love of Abu Bakr will be short, and the hella for Omarosa would be long. And if you remember that ratio, Professor Muslim said that people will live in prosperity in this time. Now the color of Omar was very long and great amount of wealth came into the Muslim world. Rebekah Viola falafel just over a year.
is when the profit and loss alum gave his final hotbar three days before he passed away What did he say? Close all the windows
all the doors to the machine besides the door aboubaker so they cannot do so. The Doors the sahabas house were on the machine he said close or and they were just straight walk straight into the masjid so close of all besides the door of the worker of the alarm so the people say that this is also an indication that he was choosing Abubakar speaker the alarm as the next relevant Calif.
One of the biggest believes is that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said while he was ill make Abubakar, the Allah and who in charge of leading the prayer.
Okay, make abubaker in charge of leading the prayer. Now the narrations mentioned
that the person who leads the prayer should be Accra, Accra home the most, what recites the best, and in some reason, what are the one who is the most knowledgeable? Okay, now, who is the most Accra out of the Sahaba? The olana? Who can tell me
who was the most?
Professor lessons that obeyed nijkamp, Accra, Accra home, obey nikka obey me calm was the one who who was the greatest body out of the Sahaba one alleged reign. The province of law settlement said chose Abubakar of the Allah although he obeyed niqab Why, why, why did they overlook it? Solomon say, because the prophets Allah Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted to indicate that only abubaker will be the next Salif only Abu Bakar Lita prayer, although he was the most knowledgeable, but if you take the ratio that the most who recites the best then it should have been obey macabre the Allah no but the Prophet sallallahu Sallam chose Abubakar acidic or the alarm pipe.
And this is why earlier the alarm would say,
we looked into the matter.
And we saw that the Messenger of Allah chose aboubaker for
D meaning made in the lead in Salah. So therefore we chose him for our dunya meaning made in the Halifax, Halifax and the Sahaba of the Allah I hope would say exactly the same thing. There was a messenger of Allah chosen for the team that we chose him for to be authentic. Felisa
called the Messenger of Allah chosen for the most important Roker, the most important
practice of the deen which is your Salah pipe. Okay. Now personally, personally,
I actually believe that the narrations were not explicit or implicit. And the reason for this is why the following
Look, if the narrations were explicit that Abu Bakar Sadiq or the Alon who should have been the Halley's then the Sahaba would have known them okay. Then it would have not been permissible for the unserer to gather in the suceava bunny side and choose a leader from amongst them, but
also, it would have not been possible
for Abubakar rhodiola himself. When he would in this Akiva decided to say choose roamer or choose a bow beta would have been a permissible why because if he had already been chosen by the Messenger of Allah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam explicit then it would have been hard for him to give preference to anybody else over himself because the Messenger of Allah would have already identified him as the hell if
you understand that by
Okay, the next one
Okay, and Shall we leave it here inshallah.
Loss of Hamill dollar elevate this status of the Sahaba one Allah May Allah subhanaw taala give us the ability to
love the Sahaba one Allah Jemaine, look how the Sahaba actually for went, you know their own maybe desires for the betterment of this ummah May Allah subhanaw taala give us unity like this habit of the Allah annum head particle of ECAM salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
