sorry for just a week. I was just waiting for the brothers, a couple of brothers who were praying so I didn't want to disturb them. inshallah, we're going to continue with our study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a Sierra Nevada we have the prophetic biography. In the last couple of sessions we've been talking about the events leading up to the Battle of brother, the circumstances preceding the Battle of budget. This is the second tier of prophethood second year of his or excuse me, this is the second year of his or the second year of the profits, a lot of his residents in the city of Medina, it is the month of Ramadan about the mid way point of the month of
Ramadan. And what we've talked about so far is of course,
a couple of months before that there was the campaign of Zulu shade on the villa O'Shea referred to Abu sufian along with a huge caravan that was taking a bunch of investments on behalf of the people of Morocco was on its way to Sham for trade and business the profits a lot so with a group of Muslims tried to intercept that caravan and the caravan was able to make it through without the Muslims being able to intercept it. The profits a lot of them at that time said we will wait for them to come back they are heading back now it is about the midway point of the month of Ramadan and that's when the profits a lot a some sets out towards the caravan. In the meantime, I will Sophie
and we received word that the profits a lot a sell them and the Muslims are coming to receive the caravan intercept the caravan, he sends the word to mcca which basically leads to the mccanns you know all of a sudden in emergency getting an army together to come and fight the profits along the seven the Muslims.
The profits a lot is similarly on his way. And we've talked kind of about how the operation underway the profits a lot decent was on his way. And this is the point where we reach right now. So as the profits a lot of the sun was on his way he had sent out some narration say before they left Medina they sent out to people bus pesa and another individual. And another narration says that he sent them out once he had left Medina. In either case, some scholars have reconciled it by saying that he sent them out before he left Medina they went they came back and met the Muslims, the Muslim army after they had left Medina and then the prophets a lot of them sent them back out to go and still
investigate in the region in the area.
This is around the time that they reach back to the prophets. A lot of these m&d inform him, along with the fact that the prophets a lot he summoned the Muslims came across some other people, just local indigenous veterans that were in the area.
Ask them about Abu sufian. And they started getting information. There's an incident specifically that's mentioned that they come across a couple of people who are they're bringing camels to a watering hole, basically to come and get some water. The prophets, a lot of them is praying and the Muslims, they come across these two individuals or this one person when narration says, and they asked him tell us about Luciana and he says that Molly, or he won't be Abby, Sophia. I don't know anything about enable Sophia.
And the narration says that they start kind of like beating him.
And then he says, but I can tell you about a robot, I can tell you about Abu Jamal, I can tell you about, you know, opening up in half, I can tell. And he starts naming all the other leaders of brush. And they say but what can you tell us about Abu sufian? He goes, yes, yes, I'll tell you something about it with Sophia. They when they again ask him about Abu sufian. Then he says I don't know anything about Sophia. And then they start beating him again. And again. He tells him Well I can tell you about all these other people. And this kind of keeps on going on in the profits a lot. He was praying during this time. When he finishes his prayer, the prophets allottee some turns to
them and tells him Stop, stop beating and leave him. And then the prophets. Allah tells him that when he tells you the truth, you beat him. And when he tells you a lie, then you leave him. It's not making any sense. And around that time, the two scouts that the prophets a lot of them had sent, they come back to the prophets a lot is him and inform him. That abusive young might be coming, that's fine. But there's a huge army of mannequins that is headed this way.
That is when the profits a lot of a sudden stops. Along with the Muslim army. There's about 300
13 of them and the prophets a lot. He said I'm basically consults them, he can conduct a bit of a meeting.
And so first shot on us, the prophets a lot of a sudden
he asked them for advice. shooto is to shadow him. Well, us, Barack Obama and Quraysh and the Prophet Salafi, some tells him about Croatia look at army of Croatia is coming. You have this information. Now tell me what do you think? For comma Abu Bakr Siddiq follower Eisen? Abu Bakr, Siddiq, radi Allahu taala, who stands up addresses not only the prophets, a lot of these him but the rest of the Muslims like encouraging them. And he says very good things and beautiful things in the profits. A lot of these improves on what he says. But at the same time, that's not really what the prophets Allah was looking for. Because of the Allahu jalon, who of course has been there since day
one. That's not a question then then again, the profits are lovely. Some says, asks, enquires, who else has something to say,
or mobile hotspot radi Allahu taala. And he stands up addresses of people into some very, you know, very admirable things. So some very good things. And again, the profits, a lot of them appreciate him. But again, it seems very obvious from the profits, a lot of them, it's not quite what he's looking for. So again, he inquires, Does anyone else have anything else to say? It is around this time that a couple of people from the unsub mc and McDonald's as well. Another one is out of nowhere I have another one is Saudi blah, blah, blah, the Allahu taala and who these three individuals are not only from the unsolved, they are Medina and Muslims, but at the same time they are leaders of
their tribes in Medina, they are leaders of the Medina community.
They stand up and admit that as what is one of the first people to stand up, and he says yeah, Rasul Allah, in De Lima Arcola. Fernando Marika will la Ilana punakha mattala nuestra he Mimosa is hub Antara bukata inna Hakuna kar car lacking in have Andorra bukata in Mr. Kumar Makati loan for one Naveen Botha cubbon hupy lo civic urbinati la bella kilifi ma de la, la la la marca mean mandhana hoo ha Tata blue. He says that prophets Allah He said O Messenger of Allah, in Lima araca la you go as Allah has shown you, meaning you do what Allah subhanaw taala has told you to do, because we are with you for national mark, we are with you every step of the way. And he swears by Allah that we're
lucky. Lana punakha capalaba nuestra Isla Moosa, he quotes something from the Quran and he says, We will not say to you, as Vanessa, he said to Musa alayhis salaam that you and your Lord go in fights. When Allah when de nuestra in, and this is referencing an ayah from the Quran, that Banu Israel had told Musa alayhis salam, we would like a place to be able to live a place to be able to settle a place that would be fruitful and abundant, and a home for our community. After a lush Panama that fleet had freed them from the clutches of Fidel. So Allah subhanaw taala inspired to Musa alayhis salam, that's fine, good tell them to enter such in such town such and such city. And as soon as
they enter Allah will grant them victory. And it said that there was a people there by the name of Amalia takoma Malika, they were basically very big, strong, powerful people. But Allah had already guaranteed them victory, they will basically walk into the city and the city will be yours, they will surrender to you. This was a promise for alumnus Rahman Allah help from Allah. And but who is right, as soon as musala sam told them this the answers that they said it had until our book, you and your Lord, you and your team go and fight for it. Now you go fight in na hoona car I don't we will stay sitting right here. You say the city is ours, then go you go with your align to the city
gain victory over the city and then let us know when we should come because we're not about to go engage in any type of conflict. Right? This was a response that they gave in a law reprimanded them for this response.
And in fact, it is said that wandering in the valley for 40 years have been allowed to endure the wandering in the valley of de Why do you see that they had to endure was after this incident where they had shown such blatant disrespect to the Prophet of Allah Musa alayhis salam and some narration say that that occurred prior to this and was actually at this particular incident that Musa alayhis salam basically asked Allah subhanaw taala for for pain and our been welcoming fasciae clean that Allah separate me from these people. I cannot deal with these people anymore and shortly there
After Musa alayhis salam passed away, nevertheless he references that incident and he said, we will not say to you as busara he said to Moosa Alayhi Salam that you and your Lord go and fight we will sit right here. rather he says Lakin rather, is have untolerable kakatiya you and your master go and fight in nama Akuma mukajee alone because we will come and fight with you. We will come and fight behind you, we will come and fight with you for what ledyba sokoban hockey says I swear to the one I swear by the one who sent you with the truth meaning I swear by Allah, even if you were to walk with us, to better kill a man, but to kill the mud is basically described as a place that is beyond Mecca
as a place beyond Mecca, basically on the shore of the ocean, that if you were to take us to what would be to them the ends of the earth. If you took us to the ends of the earth, the end of Al Jazeera to the Arab bride Jazeera to the Arab Jazeera tilapia, if you took us to the end of the Arabian Peninsula, we would go with you and not only that led la lucha, let namaha come and do nahata tableau, we would fight anyone that would stand between you and the shore. If you wanted to go to the shore, we would go with you to the shore and fight everyone in anyone between here and there until you reach wherever you wanted to reach out of Sula. So he says this to the prophets a
lot he said and
after that the prophets a lot he said, um, he makes do he says he appreciates him and makes the offer him makes your offer him. Then the profits alarmism stands up. And he says a shih tzu aleja yohannes Oh people. Tell me what you think about going and fighting the Pradesh. Tell me what you think. Right? He kind of insists he pushes the issue. And, specifically, the reason why he pushes the issue is he wants to hear from more of the unsought. He wants to hear from the leadership of the unsought and there's a reason for this, because, and I mentioned this, when we talked about this before they hit it off the October, the baotou la Cava, basically the second Oath of Allegiance at
the Medina Muslims had given to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the third meeting of Muslims at the profits of the third meeting the prophets a lot of Islam was having with people from that region. Right before the prophets A lot of us have migrated from Mecca to Medina, this at the time of Hajj. And that at that time when not only did another 70 plus people give the oath of allegiance to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and the prophets, a lot of them appointed 12 leaders within their community. But the agreement also occurred at that point in time that I'm going to start sending Muslims to you. And I eventually when the permission from Allah comes, will migrate from Mecca to
Medina and come and join your community and Medina, at that time they agreed to certain terms, what will be the obligations upon the community of Medina, the Muslims in Medina in terms of hosting the prophets, a lot of them and being the headquarters of Islam, what would be their responsibility? Because the uncle of the prophets, a lot of these are my best friend, absolute believer, who is very sympathetic towards Islam at this time, but I have not become Muslim yet. But obviously, you had a very soft spot in his heart for his beloved nephew, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he came to this meeting being a non Muslim, he came to the meeting. And he came there specifically to tell them
that this is not just some, you know, nice, big happy moment. Yes, we love you and you love us. And, you know, you're you come to Medina, and we'll all be happy together and pray together and live together. He says not that simple. You have to understand what exactly is at stake. The people of Makkah has sworn
to destroy him and his religion and his followers. And they will stop at nothing. And if you people support him, and in fact welcome him into your city. And and I know him, he's not going to stop preaching. It's not that that now he has a safe place to go and live with his followers, that he's going to live there very calmly and peacefully in worship and pray the rest of his days. No, he's on a mission. He's going to keep preaching. And the people in Mecca are not going to stop opposing his preaching. And this is bound to come to conflict. This is going to result in serious conflict. And when that conflict happens, I need to know that you'll have his back. Because you see, you might not
think that we've done a very good job of protecting him. When you look at this situation mica you might not think we've done a good job protecting him. But what you don't know is that we have protected him against all odds. My brother died. Brett he he died, and with his very last breath, he defended our nephew. He never left
His sighting supported until his last breath referred referencing him. And similarly, me and my family, we lived in three years of isolation and boycott, being ostracized by our own community, for his sake. So we've done whatever we needed to do. I need to know that you'll do whatever your you can do.
And so at that time, certain things had to be agreed to certain things had to be written down. This was a contract this was an agreement this was a pact and allegiance. And part of that allegiance and that pact was that they specifically said,
in boora, minima makaha Tata, sila Illa, de arena, for era was solid VEDA was Santa Elena for antitheism mattina Nanda aka malama, amin who abna Anna Juanita Anna, they had said that we do not take responsibility for any previous, you know, grievances somebody might have against you. We're not responsible for any previous type of conflict or enemies that you might have. We're not responsible for that, until they arrive on our doorstep. If they arrive at our doorstep, we will defend you or we will be with you, I will fight you will win, we will fight with you. We'll fight by your side. We'll do whatever it takes.
But if you go out in pursuit of a conflict with anyone that you've had conflict with before you met us, that has nothing to do with us. Now, again, when we sit here, because we're talking about the profits a lot isn't that sounds a little offensive, maybe even tell us? Like why? Why wouldn't you defend the profits a lot until the end of the earth? Why wouldn't you fight with him till the end, you have to understand at the same time, that these people just accepted Islam. They just accepted Islam.
They have just become Muslim, they have just accepted Islam and laid their eyes on the prophets a lot. So they haven't even stood in pray to Salah by the side of the Prophet system, yet many of them. So to them, this is all very new to them to sell very new. And at the same time, what you have to remember is that the 6070 people who give where they're sitting at this meeting, the majority of Medina has still not accepted the song yet, they still don't know how everyone else is going to feel about this, what their own situation is going to be. So they're also hesitant to speak on their entire community's behalf. So there's a lot of different dynamics here you have to appreciate
nevertheless, that is what was said on that night back then.
But the prophets a lot SLM, who is
you know, obviously to say the prophets, a lot of them is a man of his word is a huge understatement. The prophets a lot, he said, he is the most truthful human being that has ever lived, that has ever walked with his easy, most honest, trustworthy person that has ever lived. And so the profits, a lot of them being a man of his word. The profits a lot he sent him is very conscious of the fact that look, I understand that these unsalted, these Medina, Muslims are not obligated to go way out here outside of Medina and go for they left, they left Medina under the premise we were just going to go and intercept the caravan and reclaim a lot of what is rightfully
belonging to the Moroccan Muslims. Right, we're just going to intercept the caravan. But now the situation has completely changed. Now we're about to go fight an army where the odds are three to one close to four to one.
Right. So it has completely changed the situation.
So and our previous agreement that we agreed to I agreed to was that they are not obligated to fight in this type of a situation. So I can't storm into battle. taking for granted they of course they're gonna fight with me. No, no, no, that's not fair.
And so and I should also clarify, I haven't kind of mentioned this yet. The books of Hadith and the books of Sierra mentioned Imam Bukhari Rahim, Allahu taala. He mentioned in his he, that there were about 313 Muslims in the Battle of Baghdad, and he says, about 76 of them are Mahajan.
76 of them are Mahajan, which means that 240 of them nearly 230 something of them are from the top 240 something of them are from the unsought. So it's majority of them are from the outside. Right, huge. Nearly three out of every four Muslims belong to the group of the unsought
and so the prophets a lot of them have been very conscious of this
faxes. I have to make sure they're okay with this. So he stands up even after us word speaks in support of the profits a lot he said um he stands up from a coma Rasul. Allah says, ushiro Allah you are nuts. Oh people advise me. Tell me what you think, into my URI to lunch off. He was basically specifically aiming at the unsought and that is when sad ignore or bad or, excuse me sad ignore or sad been more I have radi Allahu taala on who he stands up.
And he addresses the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the presence of everyone who is there. And the prophets, Allah He says that we're lucky Lika and NACA to read una rasulillah sabihin. Mo od stands up and he says that, I swear to Allah, it seems as if you are specifically asking us, meaning the answer, or messenger of Allah and the prophets, a lot of Islam says again, absolutely. That is exactly what I'm trying to find out from what they think. And he says, For the AMA nabek we believed in you was such Kanaka and we testify to your truthfulness. We're shahidullah Anima GTV who will help and we testify to the fact that everything you've informed us is the truth. What are they
nacala danika, who deny my wife, my wife, eat Karna on a summary with our Tilak and based off of that truth, we swore to you, that we will obey you we hear we listen and we obey we will we will listen to you and obey you. Follow the ottosson alandi ma errata for that new mark. So you do whatever you have to do whatever you have been shown on messenger of Allah By Allah, because we are with you. For one levy Botha will have to because I swear by the one who sent you with the truth, the same truth that we believe in and that we had, we have testified to lowest Arata Bina Al Baqarah. For hula, hula, hula hula, that if you took us to the edge of the sea, the ocean and you
dove into the ocean, we would dive into the ocean behind you.
My friend spoke about going to the sea shores with you. Forget about that if you dove into the ocean we would dove into we would dive into the ocean behind you, Matt to help me narrow down on what I do not a single and I know my people. I know my people so well I can swear to you I can stand here and test to you and testify to you and teach you that not a single person from my people would remain behind all of them would come while my Necro until babina I do we don't mind going and fighting our enemy tomorrow. And that's the beauty of his statement. He didn't say I do work here enemy. He said I do when they are our enemy. If they are your enemy there our enemy inala Subaru infill hub or
messenger of God.
You know that we are people that are resilient in battle. Right The people of Medina Olson has Raj. They were famous. They had fought wars for hundreds of years. amongst themselves I was in husband's head like 100 year old a century old long, kind of a grudge going on between them. They had been fighting one another within one city they had a civil war that went wrong for 100 we are resilient in battle we don't get tired of fighting. Right was super ninja ninja. And we are truthful at the time of battle, meaning we are tried and tested. We are tried and tested lalala Utica Minamata cargo bionic. He says that we hope that Allah will give us the opportunity to show you in the battlefield
what we're made of, and it will bring you great happiness to see it'll bring you great happiness to see how strong and resilient and reliable we are.
phocoena Allah Baraka Tila, so he says to you go forward with the blessing of Allah and we will follow you. So the narration says for sudo su Lysa la December only sad when a shadow the prophets a lot him was extremely pleased to hear what's been more either reading Allahu talanoa to say and then encouraged the profits a lot. So he said see what he said walk forward and have received you know, congratulations go forward and congratulations for hitting the law. What are the needs of the pie chain? Because Allah has promised me one of the two groups either we will receive, either we will intercept the caravan or we will defeat the army. one of two things will happen either we will
intercept the caravan or defeat the army. Well, lucky enough.
Illa Masada in the home. He said that I swear to Allah. It is as if I can see where the other people will fall like I can see their defeat before me. And there are a bunch of narrations
in many books of Hadith it's mentioned in the Sahih. Remember Hadi in the Muslim Devi Muhammad. In one other narration.
MC Dodman is what the earlier one who had spoken he says to the prophets a lot, he said, I'm lacking no party or I'm Yamini Kuan Shi Malik ouabain a de bois helfrich, we will fight from on the right to view and on the left of you from in front of you, and even from behind you, right. And this brought great happiness of the profits, a lot of them to find that they were such that they were so dedicated, and that they were willing to stand by the profits, a lot of them no matter what would happen.
So after this point on basically now that the prophets, a lot of them had this confirmation, the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam, along with all the rest of the army, basically, he walked forward and they continue to go forward. As they continue to move forward.
The profits of multi zone finally came. So now at this particular time, let me kind of switch the scene back over to the flourish.
abusive Yanis traveling with his caravan, he has already sent the word ahead to Makkah, that's the you know, the Muslims are attacking this come help us. Now he's received that word back that a huge army is marching from Mecca to protect you.
And he knows that an army of the Muslims, the prophet SAW Selim, along with the Muslims is coming as well. What happens with Abu sufian is he basically engages a little maneuver to avoid the Prophet Salafi some of the Muslims. When he engages his own maneuver, he's actually able to avoid the prophets, a lot of him is able to make it past them to the point where they cannot intercept them any longer. Once he feels that I'm in a good position to be able to avoid the prophets, a lot of the Muslims, he tell he sends the word to the army of Quraysh, the Moroccan army that I have been able to avoid the Muslims. So there's no need now. We are safe, all of our goods are safe, all of our
money is safe. All the war investments that we were bringing, everything is safe. So now head back to him again. We'll see you there in Makkah. Abu Jamal receives the response. Abu john says Absolutely not. Absolutely not. We are going to go and we're going to go till we reach the place of bother. And we will go there and if we meet the Muslims will take care of them. And if we don't meet the Muslims, we're still going to go there. And we're going to camp out there. We've brought all these camels to sacrifice like for food. Right? We need to finish all that. We've brought all this wine who's gonna drink all this wine? We've brought all this entertainment Well, what are we gonna
do with all this entertainment? So we're gonna go and basically set up like a big carnival. right but a huge festival and we're gonna eat and we're gonna drink and we're gonna party ended the Muslim show up. We'll take care of them in the meantime. So the arrogance of Abuja, right. And this is something that our last panel Rotella speaks about.
inserted and filed specifically, where Allah subhanaw taala says,
that will attack uno con la Vina arena for juman Dr. him batara, whether you're a nurse, don't be like the people who left their homes arrogantly and to show off to the people about how proud and how powerful they were. And so this was a blue jazz response. So they came very willingly. Now the prophets a lot, he said, I'm on the other side, he is marching with the Muslims, basically, to the place close to where the battle took place. They came very close to where the wells have been. So they were called the wells have been right, but then refers to the full moon and some people have even said that, it's because there were these huge wells over there. And so when the full moon would
come out, it would reflect into the water. And so they used to call them the wells of butter. All right, so they came very close to the wells above that, and then they stopped there. at this particular time, the the profits, a lot of them basically stopped there. And by the way, I didn't mention that when this message reached, when the message reached Abuja hall that look, we've made it past them and they're not going to be able to intercept our caravan. Some people from the Quraysh did actually returned back to America. One of the some of them being blue Hashim, like some of the family members of the profits.
A lot of a sudden, they went back to Makkah because they had no interest in basically engaging in this fight.
So now the prophets a lot he said him when he reaches very close to the wilds of but then he stops there. One of the companions of the prophets a lot. He said, I'm one of the Sahaba radi Allahu Allah on whom
his name is mentioned to be
hubba hubba began on Monday, he says to the prophets, Allah atemi Rasul Allah, Allah he hadn't Manziel in this place where we have stopped a man Zealand Angelica hula who laser Anna and Natasha de ma Hua, la Khurana and who are right you will have we will Makita This is a messenger of God, if I may be so bold to ask that this place where you have stopped, is this a place where Allah subhanaw taala has told you to stop?
That we are not allowed to go any forward or to retreat back from this place? Are we not allowed to shift from this position? Or is this just your strategy in terms of war? This is your war strategy. So the prophets a lot of these hymns has been who are right you will harbor well Makita rather This is a word strategy. This is not what he does not divine revelation, meaning everything the prophets, a lot of him of course does is by the instruction of Allah by the approval of Allah, but meaning this is not specifically allocated as a specific place that we have to stop but rather Allah subhanaw taala left it up to me, wherever we would like to wherever I would like to stop, we can
stop. And so I figured that this looks as good as a place as any
radi Allahu Allah, Allah says Yasser Allah Farina has a laser dimension. He says, yaroslava this is not the best place for us to start from the bigness hatanaka dilemma imminent.
Let's continue to go until we get to the very,
very, we basically reached a place where all the wells are. Let's go and stop at the wells. Fernanda who we will go to the very last of the wells of the very end because there was like a long line of wells, we will go to the very last of the wells thermal hopefully tomorrow
we will basically the very some of the very last wells, we will basically fill up those wells, you take a bunch of big rocks, you take a bunch of dirt and fill them up so that they're not usable anymore, we will go and we will fill up those wells basically sealed as well so nobody can use them. And then we will retreat back to where there is a cluster of wells. And over there what we will do is we will kind of like build a big fountain a big pool that we will allow the wells to kind of overflow into so that we have a big pool of water for us.
Someone abney Allah He held on phenomena Ouma and Summa lukaku own financial trouble is horrible.
And then we will fight from that position, we will basically fight from in front of the big pool of water that we have, you know, built for ourselves. And we will have plenty of water to drink and use and the enemy will not have any water because we will have already made rendered the wells that are on their side useless. So the profits, a lot of them says that
you have a very, very good opinion. This is very good strategy. And that's exactly what they ended up doing. Now, in this situation.
So in this particular situation, there's a few things that the scholars mentioned that are very notable about this particular scenario. By the way before I even mentioned that there's another narration that says that while the prophets a lot asylums started to kind of gather the people back together again. Usage my boss, would you believe me? He is a toggle manakamana melodica Juba Alayhi Salam was on the right side of the prophet SAW some because gibreel Ali Salaam he was the friend of the prophets a lot. He said, um, he It is said about jabril alisoun he would accompany all the prophets into the battlefield and he accompany the prophets Allah him into the battlefield every
single time. So he is with the prophets. So when another angel came, and he said, Yeah, Mohammed in the La Jolla crew, alayka Salam. He said, O Messenger of God, Allah subhanaw taala sends you his salaams the prophets a lot of them responded by saying who was salaamu amin who salam wa Alayhi Salam
who was salamu amin who salam wa alayhi salam, much like the other we make after the prayer is over because we say salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa salam aleikum, wa rahmatullah and the prophets, Allah taught us that we are giving Salaam to the angels and to everybody else that is praying with us. Right and to all the people
But then what do we say to Allah subhanaw taala after we are done with her salaams Allah anta salam wa minca salam,
right Allah anta Salam amin casilla Tabata tiada Jelani will become one narration says where la caveator Jerusalem, right that we say that Oh Allah you are a salon. Meaning one of the things of Allah you are the grantor of peace and safety from you comes peace and safety only from Newcomb speeds and safety and only to you returns back all peace and safety.
Right. And so in another narration the Prophet sallallahu Sallam specifically tells us that we do not say Salaam to Allah because he is a salon for inner who was Salam he is a salon. He is a grantor because when you say salon to someone you are making to offer them as salam or Aleikum, you are saying May Allah send his peace and blessings upon you. So you don't say Salaam to Allah. So when the Salam came from Allah subhanho wa Taala the prophets Allah who taught us who was Salah, he is a Salah, the grantor of peace and safety only from income speeds and safety and only returns back to him all peace and safety. All right, all submission is for him basically.
And so he responds with this. And then the angel says in La Jolla pulak. Allah says to you in America, will America be Alibaba on Monday
that what you should do is what Alibaba has suggested you to do. For color also like salatu salam sallam, yada, yada, yada. Oh, God, you know who probably London is. So he says that mokulua sama ahref. So not just me. But all the inhabitants of the heavens know who he is. We're in the hula sodwana maccoby Shea pond. He is truthful. And this is not from the shape on one. Some of them who had the throne say he was actually referring to the angel. That when the angels specifically come and says the name of the hubbub in London, you believe the prophecy services jabril. Can you testify on this angels we have? He says, of course he is one of the Monica, one of the angels, all of us in
the heavens know who this angel is. And he is speaking the truth. This is not a shape on this is not a demon trying to lie to us. In either case, right? The testimony was true. And what happened when one did not the Allahu Allahu suggested was attested to by an angel and by Allah subhanaw taala. Now, what I was trying to mention here
was that the scholars mentioned a few,
a few benefits and a few points here that are very powerful. Number one, is the fact that Al Shabaab
if you look him up, if you look him up in all the books, that documents all the Sahaba, the biographies of all the companions of the prophets, a lot of them, I said Little haba to Sahaba le Saba FEMA refer to Sahaba. If you go and look up in the Encyclopedia of all the biographies, biographical information of all the companions of the prophets, a lot of them, the only thing that you will find by the name of an Abba, Bob,
is that he is the companion who suggested the strategy of where the Muslim should position themselves for the Battle of other.
What does that mean? That means that outside of this particular incident there is there was nothing else memorable about him. Of course, being as a hobby, in and of itself is a huge virtue. We're not saying anything about that, but relatively in that community of the companions, the community of the Sahaba that are notable people like Abu Bakar and Amara, newsman, Anna Lee, and Norma Salama and hafsa and Zainab Rafi Allahu Allah and Marian in that community he was relatively unknown is the only time where his name sticks out anywhere in this era, in the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So that tells you that relatively in that community, he was not a very notable person. He
was not a leader of that community. And again, I reiterate only because it is our obligation to do so as to how Allahu taala teaches us in our in, in our our plead our point points of creed and theology and belief that the virtue of the Sahaba something we believe, we believe them to be virtuous. Allah has spoken about them in the Quran. The prophets, a lot of these multiple times have spoken about their virtue and made to offer them and said Allah, Allah Hafiz hobby. Let's remember the Harada nobody should oppose my Sahaba after me from an A heptagon to be happy.
There whosoever opposes them then with my love and adoration
admiration, excuse me, whoever loves them loves them with my love. Meaning I love that person who loves them. And anyone who hates them. I hate that person, meaning I dislike the person who dislikes them. So the Sahaba Omar bin Abdullah Aziz Rahim, Allahu taala, a great leader of the Muslims who came, you know, in the following generations, when he was asked who's better you were naming a few of the Sahaba like, Where are we? I don't think a lot of people call you the fifth halifa they call you the second coming of oma. Right? Who is better? Who is more virtuous you or more Alia or the Allahu taala. And who is this a hobby of the prophecy itself and the scribe of divine revelation,
the cat's meow, Amara bin Abdulaziz Rahim Allahu taala, he said something truly profound. He says that I am not equal to the dirt that was under the hooves of the horse that will always run the Allahu charni Road in battle by the side of the profits along the center, as a hobby is a hobby.
And it benefits us to recognize the rank in the virtue of as a hobby. So I just reiterate, once again, that's a high bar of great virtue and value. Having said that, what I'm talking about is that in that community, he was not seen to be one of the leaders, or one of the most notable or remarkable people.
But now considered this fact. So we've established the fact that we have
had nothing too, basically, he was not a stand up Sahabi. But considering the fact that the environment, the type of leader, the prophets, a lot, he said was
the culture that he had created the impression that he had given his followers and his subordinates,
that each and every single one of them felt completely empowered,
to come to him, and to speak to him about anything and everything.
Anyone could come and speak to him
without feeling the least bit intimidated without feeling the least bit right.
You know, intimidated, or to feel the least bit marginalized or unimportant. Not at all, but a weapon. linzer says Yahoo Messenger of Allah, may I think something and of course, he welcomed it. Number two, I also want a mark of a leader is also the impression and the training and the data that he gives to the other leaders within this community.
Within this, you know, dynamic, whatever it may be, it might be an organization might be a community, it might be the owner. Right. But the other leaders, the team leads are the other leaders that he has created, that he's put into place, the culture that he's created, even the type of training is given to them and the type of culture that they continue to foster. Right that therapy has to be there that training has to be there. That when Babylon one versus Yasuo, Allah, He says, Yasser Allah,
you know, you look at his specific wording. He says, he hadn't mentioned among Ceylon Angelica. Hola.
Right there when he says there's a messenger of Allah, this place where you stopped us where we've camped out, is this a place that allies instructed you to? No other Sahabi no other Companion of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, Hey,
Hey, where are you?
What's your name?
Where are you from? When we When did you join us? I don't even know who you are. Like, really? You have an opinion? Please, please enlighten us. Right. Abu Bakar has nothing to say. Omar has nothing to say or the man has nothing to say Ali has nothing to say. Sabino has nothing to say Sabino Baba has nothing to say. That has nothing to say. Oh, but who Baba has something to say? Oh, hold on everybody. Stop the press. Hold the press. kebab has something to say. Right? That was not the dynamic in that community. He was not ridiculed. He was not mocked. He was not reprimanded. He was not like
coming to me.
Tell me tell me. Right. Listen, chain of command. You talk to me. I talked to him. Who are you? Right? It was not even like some type of disciplinary type thing. Like, listen, we're not saying what you don't have what you have to say is not important. We're not saying that. nobody's saying that. But you have to follow the protocol, brother. Right.
Right. You're supposed to, you're supposed to talk to me and then I talk to him and then he talks to the big guy. Come on, get with the program. None of that was not the environment, the profits, a lot of them created.
Right And if I'm already you know if I can kind of even
Continue that just for a second and detract from that a little bit. This is kind of a problem we have. Do we have a need for greater organization? And structure in our community? Absolutely. In our organizations, yes. Do we need more professionalism? Absolutely. Could we use a lot more strategy without a doubt, write every single, you know, a one of our organizations or communities is like a case study for disorganization, or a lack of organization, right, we are a model for our lack of organization, don't get me wrong, we have a desperate need for more organization, more structure, so on so forth,
in but here's the problem, in an effort or in a spirits in the spirit of repairing that remedying that bettering that what we do a lot of times is we kind of gravitates or we have taken, like a lot of corporate culture, what might go on in companies, right? businesses, huge corporations, mega corporations, we take that stuff, and we completely 100% wholeheartedly, you know,
fully completely, we take it and we implement it,
we implemented completely. And there's a huge problem there. Right. And then a lot of times that corporate structure, we have all these things like look, you have to have a hierarchy you have to have and even actually, by the way, I shouldn't even just, you know, discredit that a lot of different organizational strategies, and a lot of the books that are out there in the material that is out there, even some of them talk about the fact that there needs to be open communication, anybody should be able to talk to anybody, anybody should be able to send an email to anybody, anybody should be able to approach anybody, right, even a lot of organizational, strategic, you
know, strategy, books, and different training and things like that. Even they talk about some of this. So I'm not saying all of them are like this. But I'm saying, sometimes we might come across something in a corporate culture, that we viewed to be very successful, very operational, very functional. And we take that and we try to implement it in that culture, what we find is what I'm talking about, you have to have a hierarchy and a chain of command, and you got to have this and you got to have all these formalities and all these different things. We have to understand fundamentally, the oma is not a business.
We have an inferiority complex because the oma has not been run properly. communities have not been run properly. So we obviously we just look at businesses, and we just feel inferior to them. But the woman is not a business at the end of the day.
our bottom line is not money, our bottom line our souls, were in the business of saving souls were in the business of saving people. We're in the business of human beings. People. What did the Prophet says, I live in
Colorado and Washington. Why hadn't he emphasized Rajan means one man, Roger wahida. If you could only save one man,
then that's better than his whole world, and whatever it contains, mission accomplished. So we are not a business. We're not out to make money. That's not what we're doing. We need to follow the example of the profits awesome. And if somebody else along the way has something beneficial to us, that fits within the mold and the style and the some of the profits, a lot of them they won't take it fee,
Madonna to hockey, right, any piece of wisdom. Any strategy is something that a wise person takes advantage of, and picks up along the way, sure, but not at the expense of this one of the profits a lot. And that needs to be understood. And so the profits have not even created a culture established environmental community when a very, you know,
a very, you know,
average common person from the community.
A very, you know, nondescript, individual from the community feels completely empowered to approach your profits a lot and engage him in a discussion, and nobody else from the community of the profits allottee some objects to this?
Why are you listening to him? He's a nobody. Why don't we? Well, at least let's see what we think about this. Right? Then it becomes that ego thing, right? That if the leader takes a suggestion from the commoner than the other, like, you know, people in the structure who might be you know, leaders or might have some rank are kind of like whoa, who's this get why are you taking let us check with us? Let's see if we agree, no, no, no, that culture would just was not there. And then the profits a lot of them takes a suggestion. And then I must kind of what Jana to teach us a lesson so that we would not forget ever
La sends an angel with a validation of that man's opinion to the prophets allottee center.
So there's a very profound lesson and guess what? Alibaba moon did
his name never comes up again in the seat of their profits lies
you contribute and you give. It's not like now he became some celebrity By the way, remember Brother Brother right here.
Right now he's not Mr. Buffett, by the way, right? Hello Bob. The other
than that, sorry. He's not looking for any credit. He's not trying to you know, position himself and and you know, just you know, carve out a little position from
I serve. We all serve. We are all servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala we are all slaves of Allah, we are all servants of the community.
We all follow the rasuluh life. That is it.
Right? And that is what's remarkable and beautiful about this particular instance and incident.
We're going to go ahead and stop here in sha Allah. And in the coming sessions as we've talked about, in sha Allah will continue discussing and talking about the Battle of buttered
inshallah, he is coming up but because he does on the weekend, so inshallah it doesn't really get in the way of us having seen our class so inshallah we will continue with the cedar class on Tuesday in sha Allah, may Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to study the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and May Allah subhanaw taala make the study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam a great means of benefit for us and guidance for us.
