shala. Continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a siracha number we had the prophetic biography.
In the previous session, we basically concluded the study of the Battle of butter. In the previous session, we talked about the news of the Battle of butter and the defeat of the Quraysh at butter, the victory of the Muslims reaching back to Mecca and some of the reactions that occurred there in Makkah. And then we also talked about the mannequins sending or coming themselves and sending people for basically the secure of the of their prisoners to secure the release of the prisoners that were taken by the Muslims at the at the Battle of button.
Once you usually mentioned next year in the study of the Sierra and the study of the Battle of blood that is, such as you mumble Hari, Rama, Allahu taala, even is how from the Mojave throne, you haven't been this half, even a sham, they've been Kafeel from the scholars of the Sierra. What they usually do at this particular time is they list the names of all 313 companions of the prophets allottee, some Sahaba. To get on the one lucky tala and a man who participated in the Battle of burden. Of course, I'm not going to go through all of them.
Not because it's not important, but I just won't be doing so here, I would probably refer you to some other Syrah book or some seed material where you can definitely go and find their names.
However, what I what I did want to mention, even though I'm not reading through all the names over here, is the significance. Now, this is something I was explaining to the students at the seminary as well, that the Sahaba remember Howdy. If you know a little bit about a mumble hottie mumble hottie is not just a scholar of the Hadith, not just a scholar of the sunon Hadith, and a compiler of the samanda Hadith. He is also a in
a qualifier or a critiquer of Hadith and Sunnah. That doesn't mean that he critiques the Sunnah itself. But what he does is he he's a verifier of the Sunnah in the Hadith, where he verifies the change of narrations by means of which we arrive at the Sunnah. And the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And what he mumbled Allahu taala did was he practiced an extreme level of diligence. He was extremely particular, when he compiled his hate together what we call this every Mon Bukhari Sahih Bukhari, he practiced an extreme level of diligence, caution care, he was extremely particular about what he chose, and what he placed within that. So he, so he chose the
most authentic of the most authentic of the most authentic that he had come across.
So because of that, the sahale remember, Hardy when we as common folks, when we look at it, we probably think it's really big. It's really huge. There's a ton of ahaadeeth there, but in reality, there's not that many ahaadeeth there. It's about 6000 ahaadeeth. Now we hear that number, and we're like, oh my goodness, I don't think I've ever read 6000 Hadith in my life, total. That being said, when you actually look at some of the other collections of Hadith, the Muslim living by Mohammed has over 20,000 ahaadeeth in it.
So when you look at the grand scheme of things, the Sahara remember hottie is a very brief, short, concise compilation.
And so Imam Buhari every single thing that he put in there, he put in there for a very specific reason and purpose. And he was very, like I said multiple times. He was very careful and very particular about what he placed there. And now thinking about the fact that in spite of all of that, and his methodology and who he was and why he did what he did, for Imam Bukhari Rahim, Allahu taala, to place the names of all 313 Sahaba, who participated in the Battle of budhha. That is a very remarkable thing. And it actually he does so to teach us a lesson
to respect the people that came before us, particularly those earlier generation, specifically the generation of the Sahaba and amongst them the earlier Sahaba, who sacrificed when things were extremely difficult when Muslims were greatly outnumbered.
that the people who stood taller that time, and the people who stood by the side of the prophets, a lot of them at that time, they deserve the utmost respect from us. And our entire tradition, our entire Deen our history is built on the backs of those people and on the sacrifices of those individuals. So it's very important that we remember them, and we respect them, and we hold them in high regard. So I wanted to start today's session with something very powerful.
Just a little bit of a mention of some of the virtues of the people who participated in the battle, but I wanted to talk about it here. So first and foremost, one of the young men who participated in the Battle of budget, his name was Hadassah, but the Allahu taala and who his mother came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And he was one of the martyrs of the Battle of Bubba, there were only 14 Sahaba, who died on buttered, he was one of them. And his mother was extremely, very, very saddened by the loss of her son and very sad about his death. And so, she said the rasulillah the arasta Mansehra, Tata Tata Mini, you know how beloved my son hydrosol was to me, for any aquafil genetic aspirin, what? If he is in Paradise, I will be patient and hope for reward from Allah. What in Japanese okra kurama.
And she wouldn't even she said, I can't even say the name of the other place.
But if he's in the other place,
then I'm not even sure what I will do, she said literally translates you, you will see what I will do. But what it means actually in Arabic is I don't even know what I'm going to do.
So she was very distraught at the loss of her son. So the profits are lovely. Some says way hockey. Oh, hability.
Like, you know, again, there was a relationship here. So he's basically saying, Have you lost your mind?
Have you lost your mind?
Our agenda to widen here, you asked me if he's in general, which in Arabic literally translates to a garden, one garden of paradise. In the Haji nan kathira.
Forget about one garden, multiple gardens. And he doesn't just only have multiple gardens were in the houfy genital filter those. He is in general Filipinos. He's in the highest levels of Paradise, close to Allah subhanaw taala is a hadith of Bokhari. So this was the reward. In another narration, he says in Ibaraki, isobelle, fildo, Sal, Allah, your son is in the highest levels of Paradise, because he was a marcher from the Battle of butter. In another narration, and this is kind of a longer story, and we're going to come across it eventually whenever we get there into cedaw. But basically, at the time of Fatah, omaka, there was a Sahabi, who had participated in the his name was
hotly even Abby belta hadn't even be belta he had participated in the Battle of budder. Later on years later, when fenstermacher the conquest of Makkah was happening, he unfortunately leaked some in or attempted to leak some information about the Prophet ceylonese and marching towards Mecca to to the mccanns he had a very specific reason for doing so. But the prophets a lot of them was informed by God that He said, um, that this was happening, the prophets a lot of them center, I live in Harlem, where the Allahu taala and who to go and basically bring this man back and get the letter, or rather, excuse me get the letter the information that he's trying to leak, get that
letter that information back, and then he called for how to be a B belt. And he wanted to ask him, why would you do such a thing? How did you've been with us from the early days? Why would you do this? And just so you don't misunderstand. Part of his reasoning was in it's actually very profound his reasoning. He said, I have zero doubts that you are the Messenger of Allah, I have zero doubts in a lie. I have zero doubts in the Quran. And I have zero doubts in the fact that you are the Messenger of Allah. And I know that the help of allies on your side I was there and been watching angels come down into battlefield into the battlefield. I was there. I have zero doubts about this.
So I know Allah is going to grant you victory. I have family that is still being held hostage in Makkah.
I have family they are Muslims, that are still being held. He was a Mahajan, who are still being held hostage in Macau by some of the most shikun. I was going to leak this information to them so that they would release my family because I know it likes going to grant you victory. La Casa de la hora de la hora.
Allah has already guaranteed victory. So that was his reasoning. Nevertheless, he will the prophets Allah summoned him. He comes to the prophets allottee seminar honorable hottub rotting Allahu taala on who was very distraught was extremely upset that one of their own people would do this and leak information. So now I'm not gonna lie.
audition for you Darby on Opie, Amara de la jolla new told the prophets a lot of them allow me to take care of him. Allow me to deal with him.
He's a trader. Let me deal with him. For you know who could handle Mahara Sula, who will mean he liked to align his messengering he deceived the believers. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said la Jamar nano Omar in the huka shahida. Baron.
He was there on better
Did you forget he was there with us in bother? When my unique Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah but what do you even know about what is the position of the people of bother in front of Allah subhanaw taala in the sight of God.
These are people very beloved to God, very beloved to Allah, that people are bothered. And he said yeah, Malou Masha,
Allah subhanaw taala has said to them, go and do whatever it is that you want, because I have already forgiven your sins in advance. In another narration of Bodhi, he says Elisa Minelli burden is this man not from the people above it. Will Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah bada
that's what is the position of the people abundant in the sight of Allah? Allah, Masha,
Allah Kumu Jana,
go and do whatever it is that you want, because paradise was already mandated for you.
You are already from the people of paradise. So this was the reward of the people above it. In another narration about Hartley, the same man that we're talking about somebody passed a comment at that time, your rasulillah yo people got very emotional. It's a very precarious situation. Right? So they got very, it was got very emotional. Somebody say God so Lola layer, the whole Anahata moon and narrow or messenger of God had them is going to hell.
Somebody got a little too emotional.
Said Most definitely. Oh, messenger of God, Hotham, he's going to hell.
For colossal Isilon from the profits, a lot of them said conduct.
You don't know what you're talking about. This is a lie. lie at Hulu. Ha. He will never go to hell. He will never go to the fire of hell. Why Faina who Shaheed Abaddon because he participated in the Battle of butter.
And so similar narrations are also mentioned.
Lastly, and finally, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam two narrations I'll share with you very brief. The prophets a lot of the seminar another narration from mobile hood, a lot of the Allahu taala annual, he says in the larger Alliance Hola, Narayan, shahida, bodhran insha Allah, the prophet SAW Some said my hope from God, my hope with the last panel which Allah like my dua to Allah, is that none of the people who participated in participated in the Battle of butter will go to the fire of hell. They are all people of paradise. And then the last generation I'll share with you a mumble hottie Rama Allahu taala mentions this in his Sahih that
refer to blue raffia refer to mu raffia radi Allahu taala and who who was from the people above that his son relates from him that he said that jabril alayhis salam Jaya and gibreel ala Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gibreel Ali Salam came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam matter do not abandon fecal matter or do not abandon and feed them. What is the status of the people of buget amongst you, like meaning amongst the Muslim community? jabril asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam what is the status of the people of Baba from amongst you? Parliament have done in Muslim in the prophets a lot of them said they are concerned
they are considered to be the most virtuous of the believers. Oh, Kalamata, nah ha ha. or something similar to that, for calarasi Eliza as for ecology V in jabril, alehissalaam said workaholic among shahida Bandra, Minami la vaca not just amongst the Muslims are just amongst the human beings, the angels that were sent by Allah into the battlefield, on the day of bother are concerned considered to be the most virtuous of all the angels, just like the buttery Sahaba the Sahaba brethren are the envy are the role models are our people that all the other Muslims look up to all the angel other angels look up to the angels who came down in the battlefield of blood on the day of birth. So this
this is just a little bit about some of the virtues about that and the virtues of those who participate in but what I wanted to do hear
you're in today's session, and inshallah I'm going to try not to take too long with this. But what the scholars of the seat are usually do at the computer.
We spent quite a number of weeks talking about the build up to bother the actual event about some of the aftermath of but that it because it is such a pivotal, such a huge moment from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and from the history of Islam, that one thing that the scholars didn't mention is that one of the very unique sutras in the Quran, and that's why this is an opinion of some of the scholars of animal Quran that sutra and Val sutra number eight actually came down in its entirety. It is one of the rare sutras of the Quran, a lengthier from amongst the lengthier sutras It is one of the rare sutras of the Quran that it came down in its entirety or at the very
least, the majority of it came down at one time at the time of button, because basically the entire shoot off from beginning till end talks about the Battle of button and you see the entire battle of button laid out in the words in the column of Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran. So I wanted us to be able to kind of go through briefly and be able to appreciate exactly what Allah subhanaw taala is telling us and teaching us here in sorbitol and fun. So let's put our agenda starts off by saying it's a Luna Canyon and fan, Pauline and Family Law what Rasul Allah was the whole database. Well, Allah wa sallahu enquanto, meaning that they asked you about the spoils of war. So say that the
spoils of war belong to a Lebanese messenger. So be conscious of Allah, make sure that things amongst you are good, and obey Elena's messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam if you truly are believers, that then Allah subhanaw taala goes on to say that the believers are those people that when the name of Allah is mentioned, their hearts shake and tremble. And when the IOD the signs of Allah recited upon them, then their emaan their faith increases, and they continue to grow in their trust and reliance upon their Lord and Master. They are the people who establish prayer and from what we have granted them they continue to spend in the path of Allah. Those people day without a
doubt are the believers. They are the truthful believers, specifically reserved for them are very high stages near their Lord and forgiveness is reserved for them in a great a very noble sustenance is arranged for them. Come on, Raja caribou come in basic, I've been happy we're in a very communal minakari one, that just as you were your Lord made you come out from your home for a rightful cause. A group from amongst the believers was initially hesitant to leave their homes for the Battle of Budda. yuja de Luna coffin happening, they were disagreeing or arguing with you in regards to the truth. after it had been clarified. It was almost as if they were being dragged to their deaths.
While they were looking on like they could see themselves walking towards their death. What is URI Docomo? Luckily, the thought if attain that, remember the time when Allah promised that you would get one of the two groups either the caravan of Abu sufian or the army coming from Mecca Quraysh and you wanted whatever do not innovate or that the show gotta cannula calm, you prefer that you would be able to intercept the caravan, and you would not have to fight the army of the Pradesh. But Allah subhanaw taala wanted to expose the truth. And Allah subhanaw taala wanted to take the legs out of the disbelievers from underneath them, so that the truth may be exposed and the false hood may be
you know, exposed at the same time the truth may be elevated in the false hood may be exposed, even if these criminals never wanted this to happen. If the southern funeral back home, remember the time when you were praying, crying, calling out to your master asking him for his assistance. And he answered your prayers and he said that I will aid you and support you through 1000 angels one writing down after another. Allah subhanaw taala did not do this except to bring you peace and tranquility and to congratulate you and so that your hearts would find peace and serenity. And help only comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And without a doubt Allah subhanaw taala is the one who is
mighty, he is dominant and he is extremely wise there's wisdom and everything he does. Allah subhanaw taala says, remember the time when you started falling asleep in the middle of the battlefield, and Allah subhanaw taala sent down rain upon you from the sky, so that they may purify you, and this would remove from you the filth of the shape on the doubts shape on was putting in your mind and so that Allah would strengthen your hearts and he would firmly plant your feet onto the ground. remember the time when Allah subhanaw taala sent the angels and he told the angels that I am with you that he sent the angels with the message that I am with you Allah is with the
believers. And he told the angels go and support the believers. And Allah subhanaw taala said very soon I will put fear I will strike fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve and they commanded the angels so go into
Write down those who dare to raise their arms against the Messenger of Allah Salafi said them. This is all because those people would not relent in their opposition to a lion is messenger and whoever opposes a lion is messenger, then Allah subhanaw taala is very harsh in dealing with such people, that all of it is this is exactly why everything transpired. So now deal with the consequences of your choices. And Allah subhanaw taala has prepared the punishment of the Fire of Hell, for those who reject belief in God. Then Allah subhanaw taala goes on to mention that Oh, you who believe when you meet those who disbelieve in the battlefield
zappin and they are basically advancing towards you do not turn your backs and run, whoever will turn their back and run unless it's for strategic purposes like so this is the Quran basically saying that the Quran is not addressing, you know, like, it's not talking about it in literal terms. Not saying that you literally cannot turn around. Like if you turn around to swerve around and go around from behind the enemy. It's a strategy that's a different thing. But what it means is running from the battlefield, that whoever will run from the fights.
Whoever will run from the fight and that person will go back home with the anger of Allah subhanaw taala upon him, and that person will end up in the fire of hell. And that is the worst place that a person could end up. Allah subhanho wa Taala then reminds the prophets a lot is among the believers, that when you killed anybody from amongst the disbelievers, it was not you killed them, but it was rather Allah Who killed them. It was not you who launched arrows and the prophets who loves him when he threw the dirt and it went into the eyes of the disbelievers. It is not you who threw the dirt when you threw it, rather than it is Allah subhanaw taala who made the dirt land in their eyes. This
was all done so that the believers would be tested, would be tried and tested and they came and this was a good test for them. This was something that proved their mettle in Allah Subhana Allah las panatela is listening and knowing of everything that ecomondo laamu indicated caffeine all of this transpired so that a lot could humiliate, and a lot could completely deconstruct the plan of the disbelievers into 70 hufa acumen, if you seek victory, then victory comes from Allah subhanaw taala then victory will come to you from Allah. And if we're intentar hufa Jorge de la come. So it's now it's basically addressing the disbelievers. If you want victory, then go then for Khadija acumen
fetch. Victory came to you but not how you hoped, meaning you were defeated. If it's victory you wanted victory game, but just not on your side. On the other side. If you stop, leave this fight and walk away from the battlefield now, that's what's best for you. We're into ODU nerd, but if you come back to the battlefield, we will come back to the battlefield to fight as well. And no matter how many people you come to the battlefield with, it will not help you because you're fighting against Allah subhanaw taala and Allah is with the believers. Allah subhanho wa Taala remains a believers now oh you who believe obey Allah and His messenger and do not turn away from Allah while you are
Well, that's a punakha, Latina, colusa May Allah Who is my own. Don't be like those people who say we heard when in reality, they weren't paying attention at all. The worst types of the creation of God are the ones who are unable to hear the truth, and unable to speak the truth. And the people who just not are not able to critically think about what is right and wrong. And if Allah subhanaw taala knew that there was anything good in these people at all, Allah subhanaw taala would have made them hear the truth. But a lot knew that even if he made them here to the truth, these people would still turn their backs on a lust pentawards Allah, Allah reminds the believers once again oh you who
believe answered the call of Allah and the messenger when Allah calls you to that which is beneficial for you. And know that Allah subhana wa tada basically is between a person and their hearts, meaning Allah knows you better than you know yourself. And it is to Allah that we all that all of you have to return. Allah subhanaw taala reminds us be very cautious of a test that will not only afflict a group of people amongst you, but every single person would be afflicted with such a test and know that Allah subhanaw taala is very harsh in dealing with the people who do not come through in the test that knowledge to them. With guru, Allah says Remember, you were very, very
small, weak number in the earth. You were afraid that people were going to crush you. But then Allah gave you a home in Medina, and he helped you and he aided you and he gave you sustenance and took care of you so that you may be grateful and this is your opportunity to prove how grateful you are
Again, remind the believers here that never ever be deceitful. Don't turn your back Don't be dishonest with a Lynas messenger. And because if you do so you would be dishonest in a trust that was given to you when you knew better to Allah moon, while mo Anima Amala como la pfitzner know that sometimes even a person's own personal property, even a person's own family can become a test for that person. Because when a line is messenger telling you it's time to sacrifice, now is the time to basically do what needs to be done. And you stay back because of your personal indulgences or your personal attachments to things, then that now becomes a test for you when the lying the who are
journaling. And Allah subhanaw taala is a great reward waiting for people who are willing to make the sacrifices that need to be made again and I am number 29. Allah reminds the believers in terms of law, that if you continue to be conscious of Allah, Allah confer upon and he will grant you a clear proof and evidence he will grant you the understanding that will distinguish between right and wrong, he will remove wipe your sins away from you, He will forgive all of your sins. And the last panel Atal ism. Allah subhanho wa Taala possesses great reward and great benevolence where his young guru became Latina. kufr, who used to be to go Yo, yo yo joke that
when those people who disbelieved when they try to hatch their plans against you, and they do it so that either they may trap you, or they may kill you, or they can once again exile you from your own homes, be let them continue to play their tricks. Because Allah subhanaw taala has a plan. And the last pattern with Allah is the master planner, without touching him is to not be nuts. When our signs are recited upon them, they say, but send me we heard this before, loaner shockula Panda, we could have made up this type of stuff. These are nothing but stories that people tell. So what do you think the big deal is you come here telling us these stories we can similarly tell you stories
as well. And then they go and they don't just stop there they go on to say that Oh God, Oh Allah, oh god of the Muslims. If this is the truth what Mohammed says, then rain down stones upon us from the sky, bring to us the worst punishment that you can bring to us. But Allah subhanaw taala says Allah will not destroy them alone will not punish them so long as you owe Muhammad are amongst them. And Allah subhanaw taala never destroys the people so long as there is a slightest possibility that they might turn back and seek forgiveness. And why wouldn't Allah subhanaw taala destroy them? Meaning that every reason Asides from their own personal forgiveness, their salvation, there is no other
reason why Allah would not destroy them right now immediately Why? Look at what these people have done. Look what their track record is. Well who do not know Masjid al Haram. They block people from the masjid al Haram, the Kaaba will who will not only even though they don't, they are not the rightful caretakers. They are not the rightful custodians of the house of Allah, because only God fearing God conscious people should be the custodians of the house of God. But most of these people they don't even understand. They don't know these things that look how they pray. Allah says we're Makana salatu salam, look how they worship at the Kaaba, they do so whistling and clapping. So Allah
says for Luke will either be McClintock for rune taste the punishment that is a direct outcome and a result of the disbelief that you people demonstrated in alladhina cafaro Yun, Fei Puna, mala only a sudo Ansible Allah
that Allah says that those people who disbelieve they continue to spend their wealth to block people from the path of Allah, they don't spend it in the path of Allah. They spend it to block people from the path of God for say, unity akuna ha, let them keep on spending, they're going to keep on spending it But very soon they're going to regret everything they've done. And then they will be defeated by Allah and His messengers a lot. He said I'm and those who disbelieve will be dragged off to the fire of hell. May Allah protect us all. Allah subhanaw taala says in Isaiah 37, Leia, mais de la habito Minato. So that Allah Allah made all of this happen, so that he could distinguish between
what is right and what is wrong, what is good and what is bad. And Allah subhanaw taala piles, the evil, the bad, the wretched on top of itself, and then eventually he will put it into the fire of hell. Those are the people who are clearly losers in this life and losers in the next life. Now a lot tells the prophets a lot he said them. Now Muhammad, you say to those people who disbelieved that if you stop, you return back and go back home, you could still be forgiven for everything that you've done. But if you continue to persist, then look what happened to the people that came before you that chose to oppose a lion is messenger, and then Allah, Allah tells the most
This is one of the I atsuta number eight number 39 that there's usually or some people try to create controversy about this ayah rafati loom and fight them haematologic una pfitzner until there is no other there is no pfitzner there is no disruption on the earth. Right? There's no problem on the earth. We're gonna do a Guna Dino kulula and the entire Deen belongs to Allah subhana wa Tada. So a lot of times people try to misconstrue this, but this is in the context of Baba. Now ally saying after you've given them multiple warnings, you've tried to talk to them you've tried to explain the issue to them. Now they still come and stand in the battlefield. Now you fight them
and you fight them until victory is not achieved. waipuna Dino kulula for a Nintendo but again Allah says if they stop if they're willing to leave the battlefield for in the lobby Miami Luna Busey then a local watched him from there on you don't have to fight them, Allah will keep an eye on them, Allah will watch them well into a low if they turn back
into a low if they turn back for Allah mu they know that Allah subhanaw taala will protect you may or millimolar, when you're gonna seed meaning you won't have to go after them alone will deal with them and Allah will protect you from them. Allah subhanaw taala now gives some of these ions that we're going to talk about here to close out this hoorah. These IOD talk about the aftermath of the Battle of Buddha. And some very, very powerful, important guidance here. And you can see the whole basically context of the battle being laid out here. In this sutra, Allah says that, remember, know this for a fact that everything that you come back from the battlefield, the spoils of war, then a
fifth of it belongs to a lion is messenger. And that is to be used for either the family of the profits of the orphans, the poor, those who might be traveling and in a destitute situation. If you truly believe in Allah, and what we eat what we send down upon our slave, Mohammed salatu salam, on the day that truth was separated from falsehood, on the day that the two great armies met the Battle of button. And Allah subhanaw taala is fully capable over each and every single thing, meaning when you come back with the spoils of war, then some of what you come back with, is supposed to go back to benefiting the community. Remember, Allah says, when you were on the near side of the valley, and
they were on the far side of the valley, and the caravan had now passed you by was completely on the other side. At that time,
Willow to it if you would have made an appointment, left the left and filled me out you would have missed your appointment. Meaning if you had other plans, your other plans were not going to happen. Allah had already made plans for you on that day. But Allah subhanaw taala already made plans and that was so that whosoever dies, dies clearly with the truth having been established. And whoever continues to live after today knows exactly what is right and wrong. And Allah subhanaw taala is all hearing and all lists all listening and all knowing Allah subhanaw taala then goes on to say is Utica home a love of human omega Kadena, Allah showed you in your sleep in your dream that they were
very few. The profits allowed him was shown that the machine gun were very small in number. Allah says if we would have shown you that they were very large in number, you would have failed in your mission.
And people would have started fighting amongst one another about what to do, should we fight Should we go back home, but Allah subhanaw taala protected everybody from this problem that could have easily occurred? Because Allah subhanaw taala knows what's in the hearts. Allah knows our weaknesses better than we do. And Allah subhanaw taala showed you to them. When they saw you in the battlefield, they thought that you were fewer than you were. And why was that detrimental to them, I explained them the session because that made them a little overconfidence. There's nothing as dangerous as when you underestimate the enemy. When you underestimate your opponent, they
underestimated you. And again Allah subhanaw taala made it happen this way so that Allah subhanaw taala could execute his plan. And everything at the end of the day goes back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Again Allah remains the believers here that oh you believe when you meet the army in the battlefield and stand firm, continue to remember a lot with go to La Casita make lots of Vicodin the battlefield. So that may you may achieve victory. This is a lesson in sort of in the Battle of butter, right? Number one, you make whatever sacrifice you are capable of making, and then you turn to Allah subhanaw taala you put your faith and your trust in Allah, but at the same time you do
whatever it is that you are physically capable of doing. Obey a line is messenger, do not fight amongst one another. Because if you do so, then you will fail. Your all of your energy all of your strength will be gone.
Continue to stand firm and be patient because a loss Allah is with those who are patient and those who stand firm Do not be like those people who Michigan. They left their homes, overconfidence, arrogant, showing off to the people trying to block people from the path of Allah. Allah subhanaw taala be my Yama, Luna. Mohit Ally's keeping full track of everything that these people are doing that remember the time when Allah Spano when when de chez Pon, he diluted those people. He made them think that they were stronger or better or more correct than they were. And shavon told them nobody's going to be able to defeat you today. And I will look out for you, I will protect you. But
when the two armies met in the battlefield, and they saw one another shape on turned on his heels and he ran from the battlefield, like a coward and he said that I have nothing to do with you people. I'm not with the operation, not with the mannequins because I see what you do not see angels coming down into the battlefield. I fear God because the light is very severe in his punishment. Remember when the munafo una there were hypocrites slithering about amongst the ranks of the believers? Remember when the hypocrites and those people who had diseases in their hearts
to whom they started saying that these Muslims, they are foolish. These Muslims are foolhardy. They're foolish. But remember we're making it to work Allah, Allah, Allah, whoever puts their faith and trust in Allah, then Allah is very strong, very firm, dominant and wise. Willow Tara is the authority for Levine, if you could have only seen, if you could have only seen the angel striking down the disbelievers and telling them that taste the painful blazing, firing punishment of the Fire of Hell. This is because of what you people did, telling the disbelievers the angels were striking them down in the battlefield tying them tastes a punishment of God. This is the outcome of your
actions. And the last panel atella doesn't do wrong to anyone. God does not oppress any soul in the least bit. These This is directly the outcome of your own efforts, your own choices. Allah subhanaw taala said these people like who they acted no differently than the people of fit around it before them.
they disbelieved in the signs of God. And so Allah subhanaw taala held them accountable for their sins, and Allah is very strong and very harsh in dealing with such people. This all happened because Allah subhanaw taala lemmya como Vega Rania mutton and I'ma holla comin, Allah does not change his blessing upon a people until they change what is within themselves until they change what is within themselves. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is listening to everything and Allah subhanaw taala knows everything, these people could that be an infinite all these people were no different than the people of fit Allah and those who came before them. They rejected they called the signs of your of
their master, they call them lies, for lack Nambu. BM. Allah says we destroyed them because of their own sins, and we, we drowned the people of fit that just like the people have found drowned in the sea and the ocean, these people fell and died in the battlefield of butter. Well, Quran can only mean both of these groups were wrong in what they did. In the Chateau de la Banque de la isla de Naka, flew from LA you know, the worst of God's creatures are the ones who disbelieve in God, who disbelieve in Allah. Allah Dena are
the people that you had made an agreement with them, and then they broke their agreement with you, every single time. They have no consciousness. These people have no souls no consciousness, for him matter of unknown Phil Harvey, for sure, dtb him and Hulk Hogan, la la comida Corona. So you owe homage. If you gain dominance over them in war, then the people that are behind them, dispersed by means of them, those behind them that basically now use the people that you have gained dominance over to weaken the people that are sitting behind them, weaken their reinforcements, so that they may learn a lesson. Well imagine how often I mean home in Seattle, from LA him Alaska. And if you
fear that these people will lie to you will stab you in the back from being in a home Alaska.
So then what you do in that situation is you reject the agreement with them in the law.
Because the law does not love people who are deceitful and who are liars. Never ever will I accept vanilla Dina Caruso, Baku in Houma, yorgi zone.
And those people who disbelieve, never let them assume that they are going to get away with what they're doing. They should never be an misunderstand. They should never assume that they're going to get away with what they're doing. If punishment doesn't come up
upon them in this dunya punishment will come upon them in the life of the hereafter. And this is where Allah advises. We're right here at the end of the suit on this is where Allah advises the prophets, a lot of them in the messenger, the messengers, a lot of them and the believers that make sure that you strengthen yourself against these people from a by any means necessary and prepare even militarily for a future attack from these people. And what do we find out ends up happening above the blood that happens, so that you may strike fear into their hearts? These are the enemies of God and they are your enemies and there are other people beyond them who want nothing more than
to be able to attack you that Donna Muna, whom Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah whom you don't know who they are yet, but Allah knows who they are and the less telling you there's plenty of people out there that want to come and get you. So continue to spend in the path of Allah, because everything that you spend in the path of Allah for the religion of God, Allah subhanho wa Taala will fully reward you for it. Because Allah will never do you wrong. We're in Jannah, Holy selmy. But however, if they inclined towards establishing peace, for Allah, whatever, Allah, Allah, Allah, then accommodate peace, facilitate the establishment of peace, and put your faith. But what if there's a
little bit of paranoia, whatever they turn on us, whatever they're trying to take advantage, put your faith in Allah, if you think they want peace, facilitate peace, and then put your faith in Allah in the who was semula Allah because Allah hears all and Allah knows all what they're looking for in the hospital law, if they do at the end of the day, still want to stab you in the back. They know that Allah is enough for you. Allah suffices you Allah will take care of you, who will love the idea that happiness he will be more meaning he's the one who helped you. And he's the one who helped the believers in the Battle of butter. Well, if they noccalula him alphabay noccalula him and he
brought the hearts of the believers together. If you would have spent all the money in the earth you couldn't have brought these people together. Before the prophets a lot of him came to Medina. The Muslims, who eventually became the Muslims of Medina also has the rich, they hated each other. They have fought each other for generations. They had fought one another for generations. When Islam came Allah joined all their hearts together and alleged reminding the prophets a lot. There is no human force on earth that was able to bring these people together. It was just purely the divine blessing and gift. It was a blessing and gift from Allah subhana wa Tada. And then Allah says, Yeah, you have
to be you have to Buccola woman it's about removing old prophets, Joby always remember Allah subhanho wa Taala will always take care of you and all those who follow you from amongst the believers. Now unless pentawards Allah to conclude here, he tells the profits, a lot of them, encourage the believers to fight that if you have 20 people who are patient, they will be able to overcome 200 people. And if you have 100 people, they will be able to overcome 1000 people, because these are disbelieving people who do not have the understanding of the greatness of God, the greatness of Allah, then Allah subhanaw taala says, however, Allah will not require you to fight in
such circumstances, again, such heavy odds, because he knows that there are some people who are too weak to be able to do that. So Allah says that if you have 100 people with you, they can easily overcome 200 people, if you have 1000 with you, they can overcome 1000 people and allies with those who stand firm and are patient. And then Allah subhanaw taala tells the prophets a lot about the prisoners of war at the Battle of buzzer that it is not befitting that the mess that our profits have prisoners unless and until he shed some blood within the earth. Meaning These are people who have blood on their hands. And the just thing to do would be to kill them in exchange to punish them
for the blood that they have shed. But that's not what the prophets a lot of them did. But Allah subhanaw taala remind giving us a reminder he says that you want the things of this world but Allah wants the life of the hereafter for you. Well Lahore, Aziz and Hakeem allies again dominant and he's wise, lo lakita boomin Allah He said Baka Lama, second female, Madonna Dean, of course the believers along Of course with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they decided not to execute the prisoners, they decided to release them. And so Allah says that if God had not Allah had not already decreed that this is what would happen and then you would have made the incorrect choice or lowered or punished
you for it as well. Because justice is what's key. establishing what is just what is fair is what is important for pulumi Magnum halaal anti Eva so take from what be Feel free to take benefit from what Allah what a lot provided, what you were able to gain from the spoils of war. It is permissible and it is pure. Just always remember what took a law, be God conscious be conscious of a law in the law.
FUBAR, Rahim, because the lights constantly forgiving and constantly merciful. Now Allah subhanaw taala says, old prophets say to those people in the man feed at common Allah, tell the prisoners that you have, that if Allah knows that there is some good in your hearts,
Allah subhanaw taala you can hate on me Malcolm income alone will give you something better than what was taken from you. Meaning Allah will give you Eamon Islam guidance, success in this life in the eternal life of the hereafter He will forgive all of your sins, because Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. And if you if they have a lot of profits, a lot of them if they really just want to stab you in the back. They want to deceive you. They're trying to lie to you. They're trying to pull a fast one on you. then guess what?
They tried to lie to Allah A long time ago for uncommon home. But look, Allah subhanaw taala has dominance over them a lot put them in their place while ago and even Hakeem, Allah knows what everybody's up to. And Allah subhanaw taala has the ultimate wisdom that those people who believed they left their homes, Makkah came to Medina, then they're willing to spend their own money. They're willing to jeopardize their own lives, to go out into the path of Allah. And those people who believed and they gave shelter to these people who migrated to them, and they were willing to help the cause of the Dean of Islam.

but if even they were to ask you to help them for the sake of Islam, then you should help them Illa Allah colombina como bien Amita.

and so if you are not willing to deal with them, these people will not stop until they spread chaos and corruption throughout the entire Earth. When Latina Amanullah Raja doofy Sabina when Latina wawanesa hola como una haka that those people there are two types of people, either the people who believe, are willing to even abandon their own homes, like are willing to be ousted from their own home for the sake of their belief, and the people who strive in the path of Allah. And the second group of people are those people who believe and who grant shelter to those who are exiled from their homes, for the deen of Allah, and they are willing to help the cause and the cause of Islam.
Both of these groups of people who like have Muna hochkar these are rightful truthful believers normoxia to what is when Karim, Allah has exclusively reserved for them forgiveness and a sustenance that is so noble, that one cannot even imagine what he means by this is of course, not only in this life, will Allah grant them dignity eventually, but Allah subhanaw taala will grant them the eternal dignity of gender of the life of the hereafter of paradise.

But if somebody was looking to be on the winning side that did not look like the Muslim side, if you were superficial, but once but that happened, they had all of Arabia's attention, their narrations about the joshy I talked about in
Some of the in an earlier lesson modjadji heard about other people in East Africa, we're talking about other people in Persia, we're talking about other people in Rome, we're talking about bad.
news spread far and wide.
So now allies advising the people of bother the Muslims, who were there. When things were not too glamorous and things were not looking so good.
From the outside looking in things, it looks so good.
That now people will feel more confident and comfortable coming to Islam coming to the Muslim community. The people who were there in the early days should never ever hold that against them. That now you want to go now.
Oh, no, you want to come? Okay.
When we didn't have food to eat,
when we look like we were being led out like lambs to the slaughter,
then you wanted nothing to do with us.
You said we'll sit comfortably back here and watch. But now that we defeat them Quraysh maca.
Now that everyone recognizes that we're a force to be dealt with to be reckoned with, now you want to come and join us. And how many times have we seen that type of sentiment?
Sometimes somebody new comes to the community offers a suggestion. We're like, Who are you? Huh? Where did you come from?

Will Latina Amano member do the people who will believe later will come later? Well, hi, Joe. And they have made sacrifices. They will leave their homes.
