Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala l mursaleen. Maulana Muhammad wa ala early he was hyper human severe Omar Hassan Illa yo Mateen robot. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah who forgot.
inshallah we carry on now with the beginning of the hollyford of Abu Bakr Siddiq of the Allah
you're often hear that the burial of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu taala was delayed Why? Because of choosing the Halle,
which is obviously one of the reasons but it was not the only reason. Look, they had another a number of issues which came up for instance, how do you give a gospel to the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, do you keep the cornice on do you take the curries off? That was an issue of debate amongst the Sahaba the alarm eventually decided to give the province and last alum a also with his Khamis and the shirt on which earlier they gave. The other issue was way should the message of Allah Subhan Allah be buried? Should he be buried in genital location we buried somewhere else. So Boubacar Sadiq or the Allah and who said, I heard the message of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
say that a newbie is buried where he passes away. So this is why today we have the body of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in the house of eyeshadow, the Allah and her were the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away.
Also, the janaza Salah, now with the province of Allah and he was Allah there was just one janaza Salah, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told the Sahaba Firstly, when I pass away, leave my body leave me for a while, so the brain and the angels can come and pray upon me. So this is what they did. Then it would be fitting for anybody to lead the generals of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam. So what they did is that a group of people would come into the chamber of eyeshadow, the Allah and ha, and they would all pray by themselves. Now you can imagine that there was so many Sahaba rizwana Lodge mind everybody wanted to pray on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi
wasallam so this is why the burial of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took a while so these were all additional factors for why the burial of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took a few days now.
After the promise of masala is buried, now comes the issue of the Khalif Holly halifa Rasulullah Abubakar speaker rhodiola rhodiola. Anu has been chosen as the Hanif but the Muslim oma has never had a Halle pz it was always the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not receive Allah. So it's the dynamics are all new. So what is abubaker? The alumna do
the base we've given to him. He's the Calif next morning. He goes to the marketplace.
So I'm one of the olana sees him carrying his store to the marketplace in his days. halifa rasulillah. When you going?
He saying that look.
I'm going to do business. Because Abubakar Dylan was a businessman before a worker had actually two real sources of income. One was this trade, and one was that he had a piece of land with a message of Allah gave to him. So these were his two sources of income.
So Omar said you can't do that. You know, you need to deal with the affairs of the Muslims. If you're in doing business, then who's going to look after the fate of the Muslims, Abu Bakar said Well, I need to feed my family.
I need to earn a livelihood. So what they did is that they gathered and they decided to give Abubakar a certain wage now the durations differ on the wage and the amount he received but it was a meager wait put it that way. You know, just suffice.
Also, he was given an allocation of two suits a year two suits one for the winter, one for the summer, and also an allocation of half a goat that's it. And then he he his wages monthly we
what happens is a few days later, Amara the Ilana sees two women and he says to these two women, he says What are you doing here? They said we're waiting for the halifa we have some issues we want these issues resolved. So I want to the Atlanta goes and looks for a walk out of the Atlanta and he
Find him in the marketplace and he says what you're doing here there's people waiting for you. You need to deal with the fate of the believers abubaker the Allah Allah says, look, you know what you have allocated for is not enough for me and my family. Therefore I need to do some business. Now just imagine he he's in charge of the state. But because the Muslims had never come across this before this was the first time
so he said, Look, I have to look at look after my family.
Omar and Ali have the alarm, sat down again, and then they bumped up the wages slightly, nothing amazing. And also they decided to give him a full goat.
So now Abubakar Sadiq are the alarm who now he he deals with the affairs of the Muslims. Now this was his full time job. So panela the narrations mentioned that Abubakar acidic rhodiola. And who
would say that if it was not for Omar Abdullah who overcame me and insisted that I take the wage, I would have never taken it. Actually Abubakar on the second time, when Ali and Omar decided to give him a pay rise. He said, Look, I will only take this pay rise if all the maharajji rune and the leading unser agree. So he went to the masjid.
He climbed the pulpit. And he made an announcement that Ali and Omar have told me that this is my wage. They've increased my wages. Do you agree? So when the leading uncertain, Mahajan said we agree that only did he actually take it? So this was the wage of Subhan? Allah the man, you know, who ruled the Muslim world, this was the wage and deliberately omitted wage was after approximately just under two years, and he was passing away.
He told him, he said, how much has the baitul Maal give me? Who was in charge of the beta model really interesting. Who do you think would charge the beta model?
Who do you think deserve to be in charge of the beta model?
More obey the law of the lanu the mean of this Omar Laval is Allah Allah gave him the lacob the title of a mean of this oma so albedo Gerardo de la new was the in charge of the battle man. So he said how much have I received from the baitul Mar up to today?
They said they calculated they said 8000 subs
now he's passing away. So he says, Bring 1000 from my wealth. So they bring 1000 from his wealth and he says go and give this to Omar Blanca because obviously Omar was gonna be the next Calif
we're gonna do mana chosen.
So we're working on the chosen Armada. So I said Give this to Omar rhodiola so they take the 8000 Durham's and Abubakar, the Lama said because I don't want the oma to believe that they had any ehsaan upon me.
So they take the 8000 there Hamza Omar,
Omar looks at the 8000 dead hams and he says, Oh Baba, you will tie those who come after you meaning the this the caliber that you left behind
it now the status that you left behind the virtue nobody will be able to emulate it. And therefore everybody who will come after you they will tie themselves nobody will ever be able to you know reach the virtue that you or the standard that you left
so this was Abubakar speak about the Allah I know that so he This was his basically this was you know, his his income.
They left everything for the ark.
They left everything for the ark, the evil whatever he learned from
the Muslims, the war he received from the battle model he said no, give it all back that I don't want the Muslim Ummah to ever say that we gave Abubakar Abu Bakar delana took anything for his actions. And you know this is why it's very interesting.
When you look at the lobbies every single interview says what my budget is by Allah my reward is by Allah Why did they say that? They say why do every newbie say I don't want anything from you. My
By Allah because every newbie knows that no matter what you gave him, for the work of Dawa, to call towards Allah subhanho wa Taala there is no recompense
if you give him the dunya and what is in it,
but the guidance of one person is greater than that. And because they understood the reality of this, they will say we don't want any reward or reward is by Allah $1 we will see a reward on the Day of Judgment. So Pamela, okay, I will walk around the alarm as clothing was concerned, I will walk around the alarm would make sure that he would wear clothes, which was not distinguish him from anybody else. He didn't like the fact that a person wear clothes, which distinguish them from other people. You know, today, two things.
One thing, generally, when you have leaders and and rulers of places, they will take as much wealth as they want from the state, even if it means rendering the individual and the subjects as porpoise. You see this? You see, you know, the royalty, the leaders, they have millions, billions to the name, and within our own country, there are people starving to death. So Pamela, and you look back constantly cannot be alone. Why? Because Abu Bakar lead from the greatest equation Salalah alayhi wa sallam. Secondly, as it's well known that people would enter the gathering of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and they will not be able to distinguish who the Messenger of Allah was.
They would enter the gathering of Abubakar speaker the alarm No, and they will not be able to distinguish which one is Abubakar the alarm? If their boss or the moment he he reads a poem. In the virtue of Abubakar acidic or the alarm, he says he saw Boubacar acidic or the lotto and he said this in his nuts. They didn't say out loud but he says is Sharif enough skule him fundador Isla mullikin vizeum skin fizzy miskeen in the color the hashtag not fantasy, raw photo and you can read for tato
valleca yes nollie donia will add he says he says irata sharifah marsico lame fondu illa mullikin bizim skin so when you want to see if the most honorable of people, the most honorable have people then look at that King that looks like a Miskin is talking about Boubacar syndicate of the Atlanta. They look at that King, you know the Sirleaf of the Messenger of Allah who looks like a miskeen luckily the hustle not fantasy for Tata who said that person even in this state of poverty looks beautiful.
He's the one who will do the Islam of your deen and your dunya save nabasa the Allah Allah spoke about Abu Bakar a speaker on the alarm as far as humility.
Why this is very important is because see, when people have a station, one of the things which erodes very quickly, is the humility.
You know, people who have a lot of wealth, find it very difficult to be humble. People who are popular find it very difficult to be humble people who have station I find it very difficult to be humble. Nobody in the entire Muslim world had a station greater than Abu Bakar speaker Gala. You're the Khalifa of the Messenger of Allah.
But they say it did not change him and I owe
to the degree, the Abu Bakar acidic and aldila I know he would milk the goat of his neighbor, old lady neighbor every single day. So after he becomes the Khalifa, he's milking the goat.
So she says to him, he said oh Khalifa have a message of Allah. I hope your humbleness doesn't change. I hope your new position doesn't make you change. To the degree they say the Abubakar speaker of the alarm. No, he was so humble that if his if his stick would fall down, while he was riding a mountain, etc. He would descend himself make the camel sit, descend and pick it up himself and this is why I Boubacar speak about the Allah who was was so Pamela an amazing personality. You know, on every single front newbies are chosen by Allah subhanho wa Taala Nabis, a monsoon from Allah subhanaw taala. But just imagine, well I just imagine this
after those who are chosen by Allah subhanho wa Taala You are the best man to walk on the face of this earth. La ilaha illa Allah of the law. So this was a book called the law.
Now, there was one issue
which was actually
In a happening, or one incident which is happening was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was alive. And that was that the Messenger of Allah Allah Allah Allah had prepared an army to go and fight the Romans north.
around about Sham you know Jordan Palestine area the Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam had sent an unprepared an army. Now the Muslims had two encounters with the Muslim with the Romans would say the Byzantines. The first one was in the seventh hijra, who can tell them anybody know seventh Hydra were encountered encounter the Muslims have with the Christians, the Arab Christians and the best of times
the Battle of
the Battle of Mota Okay, we have you been bullied or the alarm became the sword of Allah with the prophets. Allah said, three generals. When one is martyred the second martyr the third martyrs, then you choose a man from amongst you and the children have been bullied and the message of Allah from Medina while he was a motor gave him the title of civil law, the sword of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So, and then the second one was what in the ninth year of HR
with which encounter, we did the Muslim go on fight.
Somebody just said a minute ago, the book, The second one was the book. So these were the two encounters they had. Now the Messenger of Allah heard that the Romans are actually intending to prepare an army to attack a Medina. So the Horus Allah knows better than them attacking Medina. We go on the offensive. So the problem is Allah and he was a llama, he prepared an army and Osama bin Zayed. Osama bin Zayed was the son of who
they've been hardest. They've been hardest or the Eliana was one of the three who were martyred in the Battle of Malta. So the Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam said to him, go to the place where your father was martyred and trampled the enemy.
But the thing was that Osama was 17 or 18 years old. That's it.
So Mercy of Allah prepares this army.
The army is camps just on the outskirts of Medina and a place called jorf. And then the news comes out the message of Allah is ill. So it is a movie stays there. Mercy of Allah falls, ill and the army just remains where it's kept. It doesn't, you know, it doesn't leave.
But before the war isn't lost, Aloma became ill, and he will prepare his army people a few people objected. They said, Look, Osama is only how old 17 or 18 years old you know Miss if Allah you're preparing an army with a a, a general is only 17 or 18 years old. So the prophets of Allah Adamson was very angry about this. So he ascended the pulpit.
And he said, I have prepared
Osama bin Zayed to take this army.
You have object and he is a fifth leader, Mr. velocities a fifth leader, and you objected upon his father before and now you're back rejecting upon this son. His father was beloved to me. And his son is also beloved to me first and last have loved Osama bin Zayed. Why? Because Osama bin Zayed grew up in the house of the Prophet salaallah alayhi Salaam two males grew up in the house of the professor Lawson Osama bin Laden who was the other person
as I said, Molly, you could say a very good except for the last 10 years but who else?
Okay, they've been good as they've inherited well, to the early part. Yeah.
Very good earlier the alarm panel earlier the alarm on Osama bin Zayed and you see how what kind of turbulence Allison did that but by the age of 18.
They were ready to become leaders. They were ready to start take on an expedition.
Nowadays, you know you have age of 18 they can't fly to Spain. They get old South trembling. Silva go to London on the train and they start trembling. You look at the Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam he had prepared them that they could they were ready. They were confident that they could. They could lead an army against Osama bin Zayed. So the problem is Allah Selim he became very enraged when they said this
So now the cap there, and the news comes at the Messenger of Allah has passed away, but still then
one day elapses to elapses the third day. sapan. Allah aboubaker was a backup of the third day Abubakar, Allah sends a message. He says let Osama's army go out and complete its mission. Let no member of the summer's army spend the night in Medina instead let each one of them leave immediately from their cabin in a jar of three days
is what the greatest calamity which could have befall anybody, three days and Abu Bakar saying, Okay, let's Allah is passed away. You need to leave and this was this was this is what the Sahaba were unique, well lucky. You know, this was your mother or your father dying for the Sahaba This was far greater than your mother and father dying. This was the coolness of the ii salaallah alayhi Salaam, passing away.
But three days abubaker the Allah and who says Look, they need to leave. Now. Let me give you a bit of a background of what's happening in the Muslim world.
The message of Allah has passed away. The vast majority of those who have embraced Islam have rebelled in one way or the other one way or the other day have Rob bell.
So they rebelling
they are certain elements from them like the the tribes have got one of the br acid and others who are actually preparing an army to take Medina because they know that whoever takes Medina become the ruler of the people who judge.
So imagine this, all this is happening.
They prepare an army the vast majority of rebelled. Now this army, the army, Osama bin Zayed has
all the war all the warriors of Islam in it, every single one of them. Even Omar was in this army.
Even Omar was in this army, and then about to leave.
So you can understand now they come and they and this is how we're talking about to themselves. If this army leaves and you have herbs in the barn and all these large tribes are ready to take Medina there is nobody to defend Medina, then what's going to happen?
So firstly, Osama bin Laden of the olana. Now he sends a message to Omar of the hubbub to Abu Bakar civic. And he says,
He says in this letter, he says I have with me not only the best of Muslims, but all the majority of all the Muslims. So not just the best warriors, but all the majority of the Muslim die my army, and I fear for the safety of the believer of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi salam and the sanctity of the city of the Messenger of Allah solo Muslim, and of all the Muslims. I pray that each of them will be attacked by the polytheist. So that this is what he sends a message. Now, the Maha Joon and the ansara discussing exactly the same thing. So they say to Omar,
Omar, you're the closest of boubakeur. You go and tell him Don't dispatch this army, you know that the situation is too volatile. You know, tell him to keep the army back.
So he goes to a verbal karate, karate Allah. And he says, Oh, boubakeur. He says, look, the issue is this that
all the Warriors are in this army do not dispatch this app. robocall speaker the illnesses that can happen. This was the final command of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And because it was a command of the message of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there is no way that I am going to hold the army back. And then he says he says By Allah, if I am in Medina all by myself and I have to defend Medina all by myself, I will defend Medina Obama self is a buyer life I know if I knew that the predatory animals will drag my dead body out of Medina. I will still dispatch this army. This army is going by hook or crook. There is no way that this army is not going to be dispatched
Abubakar, the Allah and who puts a very interesting assume down here a principle that if a command in this Sharia is being given by a higher authority, it is not permissible.
Though that which is a lower authority to overturn it, meaning the Messenger of Allah had already said the army is going army is going by hook or crook
and nobody has the right to overturn it now. So what are the Alon who is adamant on this fact? Now here comes another issue of contention.
And you can understand look, you have to be putting yourself in the shoes of the Sahaba. So they say the situation is so volatile, all the leaders are in this army, the people that Omar Baba in this army, you know, senior warriors, your 18 year old person who's in charge. So they said
to Omar, they said, Look, Omar, Osama is young,
the situation is delicate. Can you go to Abu Bakar and ask him to put somebody else in charge who is more experienced? Because we need this army to go and come back quickly and more experienced the warrior the general the quicker they'll come back?
So, Amara, the Lando now goes to Abu Bakar Sadiq or the lion
and he says,
He says abubaker
the Sahaba. The alar and oma are saying that Osama is young, he's still young to leave this expedition, put somebody else in his place.
The narrations mentioned that Abu Bakar was sitting down, he jumped up he grabbed the beard of Amara.
He said May your mother lose your over? Do you want me to demote a man who the Messenger of Allah made the general
La ilaha illa Allah
so Allah, Allah do he places head down? He goes out and the Sahaba are all around him and they say over what happened? Tell us what happened. He said May your mother's lose you. May your mother's lose you this is what happened. I will be allowed to became very, very angry.
then Abu Bakar Padilla and he he walked with Osama bin Zayed to go to the camp. They're walking towards the camp. Now he's a halifa is walking. Osama bin Zayed is 18 years old ladies riding
at osama bin laden with Elena autoreceptor respect he says to him, he says halifa rasulillah. Either you write or either I descend from my mouth and I work with you. And Omar of Naka dub and Abu Bakar the Allah said, No, by Allah I will not write no Will you dissent for what is wrong with a person taking a few steps in the path of a loss panel. For the Messenger of Allah said, that the fire of jahannam is haram upon that skin, which is affected by dust in the path of loss.
That you walk in the path of Allah or the body, which has dust in the path of Allah the fire of jahannam becomes hammer. Also what Abubakar civica Lila was also teaching is very important. What was he teaching?
He was teaching the army how much respect that He has for Osama bin Zayed because Osama was young
Okay, so Abubakar, speaker the alarm now he goes to the army
and he gives him some advices some beautiful advices so welcome at the alarm says oh people stop speaking to the Army's giving them advice so that I can advise you regarding the matters. memorize them from me. Do not be treacherous. So in the battle lobby treasures do not wrongly take from the spoils of war. Do not deceive and do not mutilate enemies do not cut down a tree that base fruit looks upon Allah. This is the etiquette of Islamic warfare. You know nowadays you they kill you know 1000s and what's it called?
collateral damage, collateral damage. Oh, you kill children. You can women, Abubakar speaker the olana is not even trees, leave the cheese.
Do not slaughter a sheep a cow or a camel unless you need to feed yourselves.
You will pass a people who have completely dedicated their lives to living in monasteries, leave them alone and let them continue doing what what it is that they have dedicated themselves to doing. Also, you will come across a people who will welcome you with a dish that contains in many colors of food if you eat something from it, and then eat something else from it
and mention the name of Allah over it and you will also meet people
Who have shaved the center of their heads and have left everything around the center of their heads in such a way that they look like headbands
use all of your strength to fight them with your sword go forth in the name for last one time you see some harmala how are brokers we got the alarm, don't touch the women don't touch the children. You know Do not touch the animal that is you need to eat them. Do not even cut down the trees. You know how far many are Muslims are from the teachings of the Messenger of Allah and Abubakar acidic rhodiola. And so this expedition so this little expedition leaves
this was one of the most successful expedition in the history of Islam. 40 days he went out 40 days, it came back within 14 days and they say ha lost hardly any men at all. So partner to the degree this to the degrees a Jeeva Hickman you know, they say Allah, they plan Allah plans like the best of planners. They say that when they saw the army of Osama bin Zayed, the Romans did not even want to engage because they thought how is it possible that they just lost the Navy, and they've just dispatched an army?
How is it possible that they must be so strong
and will end in military might that they can lose the leader the Navy and they can still dispatch an army so Pamela had that effect upon them.
A few lessons from this. A very important lessons.
Dawa never stops at the demise of an individual.
If Dawa was ever gonna stop. It would have stopped with the demise of the Prophet solomani.
even in this is so beautiful Salah we mentioned it's so beautiful, even in their moment of greatest mourning. The Sahaba active the Sahaba didn't stop the Dow in the moment. They was they mourn, they were still active.
Thirdly, Abubakar of the obedient to the message of Allah.
A be the submission of Allah. Everybody else was on this side of the fence. Let's not send an army aboubaker was Abubakar, he sent a message of Allah said we're gonna send it and also, fourthly, the obedience of the Sahaba to Abubakar city karate.
In such a volatile situation, they were still ready to listen to Abubakar, Speaker of the alarm and feel free.
Democracy doesn't work here.
The vast majority of one side abubaker was on the other side.
And this is why doesn't necessarily mean although it shouldn't be taken into consideration doesn't necessarily mean the jackals the majority have an opinion that that opinion is the strongest opinion. May Allah subhanaw taala elevate the status or above welcome a syndicate of the Allahu Allah subhanaw taala reward the Sahaba with one Allah aim for setting an amazing example for us.
