something very powerful. It's a classic question, right? Because the Quran says either around the shape and your hula hoop. Farrakhan when God intends something to be then he says Be and it is that's it? Could Allah have not just commanded the enemy to just fall dead immediately in the battlefield? And they would have all just fallen dead and it would have been over? Absolutely. Then why did Allah send angels into the battlefield? And he said, to demonstrative ly, to to demonstrate to establish the victory of eemaan.

And there were a group of the believers that we're not sure about this at this moment. And that's a very human emotion and

00:10:40 --> 00:11:19

reaction. You judge the Luna can feel happy about the matter. begginer got under my user Puna Elon motiva Holmium drone, they were very uneasy and nervous, even though they knew what is right and wrong.

all wise. So this is the battle of butter. And this is the turning point where Allah subhanaw taala showed us that light always prevails over darkness, the truth will always prevail over falsehood. What is right, what is correct, will always come out on top at the end. And what we have to learn the lesson is that the Sahaba when they were going to the battlefield, they were shaking, they were nervous, they were anxious. The Quran talks about this. But the moment they arrived in the battlefield, they were willing to go and stand there for what was right. No matter how daunting and overwhelming the odds were. That serenity washed over them, that calmness and tranquility from Allah

00:13:18 --> 00:13:24

came over them. And Allah subhanaw taala literally tells us in the next verse, is you Hershey kimono

00:13:26 --> 00:13:37

means that they such a serenity and a calmness washed over them, that they started dozing off and falling asleep standing in the battlefield,

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


00:13:41 --> 00:13:42

falling asleep or standing

00:13:43 --> 00:13:46

and then falling asleep while standing in the battlefield.

00:13:47 --> 00:14:16

Like it hasn't even possible. I could probably pull it off. But how's that even possible? But that's for different reasons. I can pull it off for different reasons. Right.

00:14:17 --> 00:14:34

unable to sleep and rest. Because there's no peace and tranquility. Because a peace and tranquility has always been found solely and only in devotion and dedication to Allah to the Messenger of Allah and to the truth.

00:14:35 --> 00:14:54

If you tell the truth, they always say right, you told the truth you can sleep well at night. No matter what the consequences you told the truth. There were some tough consequences but you know you'll sleep good at night. You lied. Inside Out backwards forwards you lived your way out of a situation. Okay, there were no immediate consequences.

00:14:55 --> 00:14:59

But you lose that tranquility. You lose that sleep

00:15:00 --> 00:15:37

And that's what Allah is teaching us here in the Quran. May Allah subhanaw taala keep us committed to the truth. May Allah subhanaw taala grant us steadfastness upon the truth, and may Allah subhanaw taala grant us peace and tranquility. I mean arable.
