You're listening to the Calum Institute Podcast Series Syrah life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam call him is pleased to announce that admissions for the next column seminary intake are now open. For more information, please visit olum Institute. org.

00:00:17--> 00:00:47

It's reliable hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah, who Allah Allah, he was he h mehreen shala. Continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, siracha Nava we had the prophetic biography in the previous session, which was a few weeks ago, apologize for the irregularity. inshallah, we'll be continuing now, hopefully, consistently, we talked about the beginning of the third year of digital, the beginning of the third year of digital was basically

00:00:49--> 00:01:30

to some degree to quite an extent, actually a reaction to the Battle of blood, that the couple of incidents that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Muslims, they they dealt with, was first and foremost, kind of a small raid, by Abu sufian, and a few of the operation, a few of the mccanns, in which they burned down an orchard and even killed and on Sati, and another ally of the unsought there were a couple of incidents in where the profits a lot of the sudden the Muslims, they pursued them, and went after them. And then of course, there was the issue of a new a new car, the Jewish tribe that lived within the, within the boundaries of the city of Medina. And that was all a

00:01:30--> 00:01:56

reaction to the Battle of Bugatti because some of the Jewish tribes that lived in and around Medina became very agitated after the Battle of bud, because they naturally felt very intimidated. And I talked about this at length before, but I'll just reiterate for a second year, the Battle of butter was very, very interesting in in the sense that, up till that point, the Muslims were looked at the Muslim community, even the establishment of Medina, was looked at as just,

00:01:57--> 00:02:06

you know, a very small insignificant occurrence. It was looked at as as if there was just this very small,

00:02:07--> 00:02:54

you know, a century group of people. And it didn't seem to have any type of significance or relevance to the greater Arabian peninsula. And it was deemed to be an irrelevant occurrence. But once the Battle of butter actually occurred and happened, Mako was shown to be vulnerable to race, it was proven now that race could be defeated. And not only could courage be defeated, but he could be defeated by this very small, poor, helpless band of individuals, of people. And so that very greatly started to that basically put all of Arabia on alerts in regards to the Muslims and so a lot of these events were happening as a consequence, as a reaction to that. Now, as I mentioned, of

00:02:54--> 00:03:13

course, the Battle of brother once about a little brother happened and you have to understand that Medina and MK are basically at war at this point. The Muslims and the Quraysh basically are at war with one another. On top of that, then you have Abu sufian raiding Medina, burning down an orchard and killing a man killing two people actually a Muslim and the ally of one of

00:03:15--> 00:03:59

a member of a tribe that is allied to the Muslims. So they are basically announcing that we are very interested in continuing this war, this battle. So at that particular time, there's the incident that is referred to as Cydia two they didn't have ether Cydia two they didn't have ether this was the campaign or the expedition of they do know how to eat at the adopted son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is also known as such, but to be soufiane or Sahaba to soften, soften omiya. what occurred at this particular time was that the Qureshi themselves, Abu sufian himself had escalated the issue by rating Medina. So now who became very concerned they needed to travel for the

00:03:59--> 00:04:40

sake of their business. At the beginning of the year, they needed to travel to a sham in order to conduct their business, but their route to a sham passed by very close to Allah, Madina, munawwara, the city of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So because of this, you know, there was a lot of paranoia amongst the higher ups in Mecca amongst the leadership of the parish, that what are we going to do? How are we going to go about our business? Now that's, you know, the issue is the way that it is, right? We're both trying to get each other. So how are we going to conduct business? How are we going to travel safely? So they decided at that particular time, so fundamental way Yeah, so

00:04:40--> 00:05:00

fun, even though mayor who was one of the surviving leaders of the parish, and had kind of inherited a seat at the table, after all the so many of the leaders of Croatia died in the Battle of Baghdad. He was going to be leading a, again, kind of an investment campaign to grow the war fund.

00:05:00--> 00:05:16

of the operation, the mannequins. And so he was carrying a lot of silver, a lot of valuables, a lot of merchandise with them. And many investments were made from some of the leadership of the operation, and they were going to be traveling. What ended up happening is that

00:05:17--> 00:05:26

the one of the individuals from MCC, who was aware of the fact that this caravan was going to be going to do business.

00:05:27--> 00:06:07

He knew I had been Massoud who was from the McKenzie was from the operation. He ended up visiting Medina, he had some friendships, he had some old friends that he had in Medina, he was also very close to some of the people of banana lead. So he ended up visiting just on a personal visit. And he was granted protection and he was able to come and visit while he was visiting. At that time, you know, basically they were, they were hanging out, the alcohol was free flowing, they started drinking, eventually, he got very drunk, and he ended up spilling the beans, he ended up talking about the fact that, you know, we're putting together all this money, and we're going to be

00:06:07--> 00:06:46

traveling to a sham to do some business. But the problem is we can't go by here anymore because of Mohammed and his people. salallahu alayhi wasallam. So what we're planning to do is to take an alternate route, we've been able to figure out an alternate route and we're going to be taking that route need basically spilled the beans. One of the people who was there at that time, came and informed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. To lay saleet ignore man are the Allahu taala and who and this is of course, before the prohibition of wine and alcohol, but selective Norman radi Allahu anhu, who was present in that gathering, he came in, he informed the Prophet sallallahu

00:06:46--> 00:07:26

alayhi wasallam that this is this is what's going on with wh and this is what they're planning on doing. The prophets, a lot of them immediately sent Xavier nahata with as many people that they could get together on a short notice, and sent them out to intercept this caravan. Because if you remember, after they had raided Medina burned down an orchard and killed two people, they have pursued them, but we're not able to get ahold of them. So this was this was retaliation, justified retaliation in that regard. So they don't know how they thought about the Allahu anhu. And a group of Muslims they go, they are able to intercept the caravan. They're a they acquire a lot of the

00:07:26--> 00:08:13

silver and the money and the investments that they're carrying with them and bring it back to Medina. And some of the narrations mentioned as well, that one person was taken prisoner, his name was forgot even how young he was taken prisoner. They arrived back in Medina. And by and far, this was probably the largest acquisition, the Muslims had made up to this particular point. And it was very well needed very much needed reprieve from a lot of the very difficult circumstances that were present in Medina. Right. Because if you think about it, the community of the community of the unsolved right the Medina and Arabs, right pre Islamic Lee, they were farmers. They were Date

00:08:13--> 00:08:56

Farmers, very simple, humble people. They didn't have much to their name. Then you have an entire community of the Maha Joon, who has left MCI now arrived in Medina, penniless homeless. Alright, so now they are de unsought I've taken them in who already were hand to mouth to begin with, then you have the majority of Muslims or a lot some of them at least, the majority of them would actually come later. But many of the Muslims who were in Hubei, Shan, appa sr, have also now common arrived in Medina as well. So you have another whole group of outsiders, again, who are arriving, basically penniless, homeless. And they arrived there and they're taken in as well. So the and then you have

00:08:56--> 00:09:20

something like the Battle of butter happening, where everybody exhausts every, you know, ounce that they have. So the community in Medina is really struggling financially. And so this was a largest acquisition, it was around $100,000 him $100,000 him 100,000 gold coins, because as soon as well and file had informed us at that, that was revealed at the time of

00:09:22--> 00:10:00

Hulu. So Hulu lillahi, wa rasuluh All right, that a fifth of what is acquired, basically is set aside for the state of the for the affairs of the state, right and it is at the discretion of a lightness messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It is used for debated man, it is used for the running of the affairs of the states. It is used for supporting the family and the families in the households of the profits a lot easier, because they cannot accept the cuts. Right. So it's used for all these necessary functions in the community. So that's the almost one fifth 20

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

The percent that is set aside for the affairs of the state, the justI Holmes is mentioned within the narrations of evocati that just the host was $20,000 him, which basically means that it was $100,000 him 100,000 silver coins that were acquired at this particular time. So this was by far the largest acquisition that Muslims had been blessed with up to this particular point. The one prisoner who was taken for Altima hayyan, that again was not some indiscretion on the part of the Muslims. What proves that he accepted Islam. Alright, so he was acquired, he was taken prisoner. He was taken to Medina, he was released by the Muslims and Medina, you're free to go back to Makkah. And basically

00:10:44--> 00:10:50

he said, No, I'd rather stay alive. Mohammed Rasulullah. Alright, so he ended up becoming Muslim.

00:10:51--> 00:11:37

And so then all of this basically transpired in the month of June model oola of the third year of the profits, a lot of these homes residents in Medina, so about 28 months after the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam had arrived in the city of Medina, so a little over two years now. And so in about two, two and a half years, this is where the state of affairs has reached. As far as the Muslims are concerned. They're even Jedi that who Lakota Allah He also mentions at this particular point. That in Robbie on a well of this year, the third year of his run the month of horrible Oh well, this is also the month in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam conducted the marriage

00:11:37--> 00:12:17

of Earth Madame noir found radi Allahu Allah and who with his third eldest daughter, uchu Binti Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if you remember if you recall, or smartum no I found was sent back by the prophets a lot and was told to stay in Medina during the Battle of butter to look after the daughter of the prophets a lot of the some of the wife of earthman, who was very ill at that time will tell ya the Allahu Allah. When the news of the victory of Baba arrived back in Medina, at the hands of they don't know how they thought they were, he saw the Muslims are often his own son Oussama to crusade and a group of Muslims returning back from here, after having buried the

00:12:17--> 00:12:52

daughter of the prophets a lot. He said, I'm performing her janazah she is the daughter of the process and passed away while they were blessed with big victory at button. So it was very bittersweet for the profits a lot of the time in that regard. It was a great victory, but he came back to basically mourn his daughter. So after some time, had transpired and passed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, at that point in time married his third daughter, omocha, thumb to Earth man, I'm not a fan of the Allahu taala and who thereby granting Othman or the Allahu taala and who the title and the honor of being Zulu reign, the one who married the two daughters of the Prophet

00:12:52--> 00:13:31

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, of course, one after another subsequently, not at the same time, as that's not permissible. But he basically married the younger sister, after the elder sister had passed away. He married her and he's the only one in fact, even Kathy rahang, Allahu taala mentions that there is I mean, of course, there's, one could argue that we don't have a lot of information in that regard. But then what could counter argue well, exactly, baby because there is no other precedent of this. But basically, even cathedra Hama, Lakota, Allah says, I even looked within the ISA Elliott's and I could not find anywhere any evidence even in the Salah Elliot, that anyone had

00:13:31--> 00:13:47

ever married two daughters of any prophet or messenger, Anakin Salaam. And so that is an honor and a distinction of earthman menar, founder of the Allahu taala I know, he's the only one from humanity from the history of mankind, who has been able to marry to,

00:13:48--> 00:14:28

you know, daughters of any profit or any messenger or even vice versa. There's never been a woman who is married to two sons of a prophet, or a messenger, one after another. So he's the only one who has had that type of a relationship with any profit or any messenger throughout human history. Even cathedra hum Allahu taala makes this particular point. And of course, the prophets a lot he said them would comments. And muku actually wrote the Allahu Allah Allah will also pass away during the lifetime of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the prophets, a lot of them would actually comment that if I had another daughter will go through and passes away the Prophet system said if I

00:14:28--> 00:14:46

had another daughter and married because of course Fatima rhodiola kujala Anna was married to Ali Baba Vitaly been the second year as we talked about, but he's commented at that time, if I had another daughter to marry, I would have married her to earthman when I found out the Allahu taala and who because that is the caliber and the quality of an individual that he is.

00:14:47--> 00:14:52

So that is the next incident that basically occurred during the third year of digital.

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

Before we were very close to discussing the Battle of boyhood before we discussed about the war

00:15:00--> 00:15:19

Hold, which we'll probably delve into in the next session, or at least start discussing in the next session. There's one major incident in the third year that can very well be described as the precursor to the Battle of boyhood. So, how and why the Battle of the hood occurred

00:15:20--> 00:15:24

is tied to another incident of during the third year.

00:15:26--> 00:16:16

So this involves discussing a particular individual who lived right outside of Medina to the menorah, his name was gob, Ashraf garb, yBnL, Ashraf, his father, he, he was a very interesting individual, his father was Arab, his father was from blue tie, and specifically from the family of banana pan. So his father was Arab, and of course, Arabs, they establish lineage as Islamic firms as well. Arabs established even pre Islamic Lee they established lineage through the Father. So in the eyes of the Arabs, he was Arab, from his mother, however, belong to banana deed, which was a Jewish tribe. And as the Jews as the Jews, they established lineage through the mother, he was accepted as

00:16:16--> 00:16:39

one of banana lead, he was accepted as a Jew amongst the Jews. And so he was a very interesting individual who was able to maintain a very high rank and status in both families in both communities, excuse me. And his father was not just an individual of an Arab tribe, he was from the leadership of the Arab tribe, his grandfather had actually been one of the chiefs of banana lead.

00:16:40--> 00:16:55

And so because of this, this was somebody who held very high rank in both communities. On top of that, he himself was known to be just in terms of physical features, obviously, in terms of gaining prominence, he was known to be very tall, he was very handsome.

00:16:57--> 00:17:13

In terms of his abilities, he was literate, he knew how to read and writes not and that was, while that was common amongst the Jews, those very rare amongst the Arabs. So he was educated. He was actually a very talented poets.

00:17:15--> 00:18:00

And his, he was very well known for his poetry, he would be hired for his poetry. So and he had inherited a lot of lands right outside of Medina, some of the lands of banana lead, he had inherited them from his grandfather. So he owned lots of very valuable land. He was a poet, which basically made him a celebrity at that time. He was very politically connected in two different communities there, you know, some of the Arab tribes and in the Jewish community. So this was somebody who enjoyed a lot of basically status and luxury. And he was a very prominent individual. So he was used to basically getting his way. And he was used to being able to make anything happen that he wanted

00:18:00--> 00:18:01

to make happen.

00:18:03--> 00:18:22

After the Battle of butter, again, he was very agitated by the Battle of butter as well, he was agitated and of course, with the arrival of the profits, a lot has happened in Medina, the you know, spread of Islam and basically Medina basic, becoming a Muslim city. He was agitated by all of that, but once about the budget occurred. Now, he was very bothered by all of this.

00:18:23--> 00:18:40

So many different historians human body, and so he mentions this, in his heart, he mentioned this, even Cathy mentioned this. And so, and also emammal, basically, in della elu also mentioned says, that Goblin, Ashraf

00:18:42--> 00:19:14

basically after the Battle of Baba, he got in touch with the operation. He got in touch with the operation and he actually paid a visit to Makkah. And he being having some type of celebrity status. You know, he was able to gather people together. He said, I'd like to speak to the leadership here in Mecca. The leadership of the operation, they said, Sure, they kind of gave him an audience. They got everybody together for him. And he addressed everyone by saying, well, Latina in Ghana, Mohammedan Saba, how would I own the bottle or the hydro means

00:19:15--> 00:19:23

that instead of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is able to defeat you people, then we're better off being in the ground and being on top of the ground.

00:19:24--> 00:19:59

Like we should all just die fighting him. If Mohammed is sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is going to be able to, you know defeat even the Quraysh. And it said that he conducted a campaign in Makkah. He went and resided there in Makkah, there are even some narrations that say that he was paid by some of the courage to even conduct his campaign but he conducted a campaign where not only he incited the Moroccans against the Muslims, but he also

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

conducted a fundraising campaign to encourage everyone to contribute to the war fund to be able to build an army up to attack the Muslims. And so all of this is mentioned in the narration.

00:20:14--> 00:20:27

For unzila, to Wakamatsu, he basically went to article about Larry's unzila to a Chroma to rajala you have to do an attorney Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam way,

00:20:28--> 00:21:07

way under lumen coochie la mina Mashallah kena Yama better for the correctness ha casita who allottee of aloha Tata raha Badran Li Monica Lee well immensely better interest a helluva tomorrow. He says that, you know, my heart still burns because of the people who died at bother. My heart still aches for the people who fell at butter from amongst operation and he says that what happened at butter is such that we should never stop crying over it. We should continue to mourn we should continue to be angered we should continue to be pained by what happened at butter. So

00:21:08--> 00:21:32

Hassan bin Tabitha radi Allahu taala and who also mentioned that through my mother, Ellen Medina, for jhala, you should be moving into a Muslim in a way as you know, Beast allottee son was Habu. And so after he got everyone riled up in Mecca, and basically got a war campaign started which resulted in which resulted in Ohio so he is the instigator of

00:21:33--> 00:21:39

he then came back to Medina, he told him, McKenzie said now let me go back to Medina and do what I do over there.

00:21:40--> 00:22:15

So he comes back to Medina, and he starts inciting and instigating fights within Medina by you know, inciting some of the old rivalries in Medina between us and hunter Raj. One of the other things that he was very notorious for was harassing Muslim women in Medina. He would kind of sneak out at night or, you know, go out and cover up and harass Muslim women to just create some unrest in Medina create some paranoia and Medina to the streets in Medina are not safe. He started, you know, slandering the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, slandering many of the Sahaba radi Allahu taala on him

00:22:16--> 00:22:32

and started creating all these problems. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he came to know about that Goblin Ashraf singlehandedly is basically trying to incite war, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:22:33--> 00:22:37

you know, gathered some of the individuals of the tribe of ohss

00:22:39--> 00:22:47

and he basically said, he asked them that this is the problem that we have right now. Gaben Ashraf is trying to

00:22:48--> 00:22:58

rile up Makkah to attack Medina. On top of that he's creating all this, you know, unrest in the streets of Medina. We need to handle this problem.

00:22:59--> 00:23:12

So one of the unsought Mohammed bin muslimah radi Allahu taala and who was from the O's? He said, Yeah, rasulillah Let me go ahead and handle this. But he said if I have to, if I have to,

00:23:14--> 00:23:15

you know,

00:23:16--> 00:23:33

employ certain tactics in order to be able to handle this situation. Do I have Is it alright? If I do what I have to do? And the prophets a lot, SLM said, la comunidad, you know, you do what you have to do. I'm not going to get in your way. I'm not going to tell you what to do.

00:23:35--> 00:24:20

So at this particular time, Mohammed bin muslimah, he says, okay, so he says, Let me recruit a couple of people. So one of the unsolved his name was Abu Nabila. His name is actually silcon radi Allahu taala. And who, so he recruits a buena Illa, whose name is silken. And the reason why he recruits him is actually very interesting. It's fascinating. This Sahabi aluna ihlara The Allahu anhu was nursed by the same woman that carbon Ashraf had been nursed by So, because of that he was his foster brother, his robot, a brother, his milk brother, so he was his foster brother. So he knew that if somebody can get me through the door, it's a buena Isla. That's the closest ally that I

00:24:20--> 00:24:53

that's the closest I can get to Goblin. Ashraf, one of the other things I wanted to mention Goblin Russia have that huge property at inherited. He had basically built a fortress on it. It's this man's notions of grandeur were like out of control. He had built a fortress for himself. He lived inside of a fortress. And so he said that the the closest I can get to him is una Isla. So he got up on it and a couple of other buddies from OST together a couple of other of the unsought and they head on over to visit Goblin Ashraf.

00:24:55--> 00:24:57

So this is where it gets

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

very

00:25:01--> 00:25:16

Interesting and you kind of learn a little bit more about Goblin militia of so they go to visit him. And Muhammad Abu Nadella makes introductions. He says, You know, I wanted to come visit you. He's like, absolutely, brother, it's nice to have you, etc, etc. And he said, I wanted to introduce you to my friend

00:25:17--> 00:25:20

who wanted to meet you. He asked me to introduce you to him.

00:25:22--> 00:25:39

So he said, Sure, he says this Mohammed bin muslimah. So Mohammed muslimah says that, look, we have a little bit of a problem. We have a problem in the hands of Rajan, but the Silent Assassin, when the Hoopa anana, were in need to assess Li fuka.

00:25:40--> 00:25:46

So he says that look, this man, this man is basically speaking about the Prophet,

00:25:47--> 00:26:02

Mohammed bin Messiah, these are the tactics, he says this man who has come to our community, and we followed him what and one other nourishing says, in Napa, it's about Anna, who we followed him, Fernando hipo, another ohata nandura in a in St. Lucia,

00:26:03--> 00:26:38

we want to stick it out with him. You know, we agree with him, we believe in what he says. But at the same time, we're dealing with a lot of difficulty. We have poverty at our doorstep, we're dealing with a lot of financial hardship, you know, the Arabs have picked up weapons against us. We're at war with predation, McConnell, and so we're dealing with hard times. So what I'm trying to tell you is that I'm with him. But I do have a difficult situation. And I'm not sure how things are gonna pan out how things are gonna play out. But in the meantime, I was wondering if you could assist me and help me. And so basically, I want to borrow some money from you. But I'll be indebted

00:26:38--> 00:26:52

to you, I'll pay you back. I'm good for it. You know, and, you know, this is definitely going to earn you a lot of influence in my community, I'll vouch for you, you know, your influence will grow, your network will grow, etc, etc. So he has this whole conversation with him.

00:26:54--> 00:27:20

So he says, Sure, okay, I don't mind let me do some money, but No, honey, you have to put down something as a security deposit you have to play around is a security deposit, but with the Arabs, specifically, the security deposit would be some type of valuable, and a lot of times it would be a sword or an armor or shield, the prophets Allah Himself. When he the day he passed away, the prophets alive, some still had an armor that was kept by somebody as a security deposit.

00:27:21--> 00:27:44

For a loan, the profits, a lot of these are taken. But the armor the Profit System, I put was worth more than the loan that he had taken. That was the sort of the profits a lot of them would he would put down as a security deposit. It was always worth more than the money he was borrowing. Right. So Nevertheless, he says put down some type of security deposit. He says, Okay, well, he intuited. What would you like? So he says, in harmony Masako?

00:27:45--> 00:27:54

So he says, once you bring your wife and drop her off at my place, a hold your wife has a security deposit. Right? very disrespectful, obviously.

00:27:55--> 00:28:35

And so he says kafer nanocone sana. And so Mohammed bin muslimah probably was thinking to himself, like I should just take care of this right now. But he said, You know, I don't have my weapons on me, etc. So I gotta play cool. You're gonna handle this situation. I'm dealing with this wretched human being but let me keep my cool, right keep my head about me and handle my business here. So he says given our Chanukah Nisa, Anna, how can I come and leave my wife here with you? While anti Arab? You know you You're such a baller. Mashallah. Right? And so how am I going to leave my wife here with you? She's not gonna want to come back home with me then. Right? So he says, All right. All

00:28:35--> 00:29:12

right. I get it. You know, I am a baller. What am I supposed to do? Right? I can't help it. Right? So then he says for hanani abna accom. So why don't you leave your children here with me as a security deposit? Wow. Put them in a corner somewhere. Like they're domesticated animals, right? Like their pets. Right? I'll tie him up in a corner somewhere. Leave your kids here with me. I'm not a banana says Come on, brother. How am I gonna leave my kids here with you as a security deposit? Right? For your super right for you. Some people will curse them. Be like, Hey, you know you, you know you. Your father left you with somebody as a security deposit. That's what you're worth. That's

00:29:12--> 00:29:23

what your daddy loves you. Right? So he's like, I can't do that to my kids. Come on. Think about it a little bit. Is that right? So he says okay, okay, I got you I get it. So he says that. You know

00:29:24--> 00:29:42

what, what, what else? What else can you leave as a security deposit? You people don't have anything else. poor farmers. Look at you ragged tattered. What else you going to leave? So now, someone says I was hoping the conversation would get here. Because this was my plan. said look, you know us Olson has an edge. We're fighters.

00:29:43--> 00:30:00

We're farmers. We don't own anything. But we are fighters. We got swords and shields and armors. That's basically what we have. Right? We plan dates, and we Polish our swords. That's what we do. Right? So he says How about we believe our weapons with you?

00:30:00--> 00:30:08

See Lana. right with you as Ron. So he says, okay, Manas. Well, that works for me. So he says, great, fantastic. So we'll come by

00:30:09--> 00:30:36

tomorrow day after with our weapons. And we'll we'll leave it with you as a security deposit. Now, this gives them an excuse to bring weapons through because he lived in a fortress. So the way that he used to operate was that he had guards at the door at the gates, and you would have to leave your weapons with the guard. But how do you get weapons in? Well, this is how you get weapons in we're bringing it as a security deposit. Right? So you can inspect them and you can check them and see them. So he says, great, fantastic. They come by the following knights

00:30:38--> 00:31:03

and a boon Allah basically, you know, they come in, says, who's there a boon is there. So Gabriella chef is informed buena Allah is here to see you. Right your brother. So he starts getting out of bed. And what's very fascinating is that his wife, actually, you know, grabs him and says that don't go and see this is the other thing right?

00:31:05--> 00:31:07

I'm going to talk more about this towards the end of it.

00:31:08--> 00:31:24

But the story of Goblin Ashraf is twisted by two opposite extremes. It's twisted by some of the heart eg you know, militant extremist types who basically say look, the second anybody says anything that you don't like

00:31:25--> 00:31:27

done take them out.

00:31:28--> 00:31:34

Right? This is a poet said something disrespectful about the profits a lot of them took them out

00:31:35--> 00:32:01

incorrect, right. And similarly, the story of communist Ashraf is also twisted by the opposite extreme right islamophobes and people who orientalist earlier now islamophobes these days and people who try to mis portray or slander Islam, they basically they use the same story and they actually use the same exact rhetoric. They're like look, the second somebody said something Mohammed Salah they sounded like they would take them out.

00:32:02--> 00:32:13

And it's incorrect because his when he's leaving the bed, his wife actually says cuz it's nighttime. She says that and it says, Where are you going? And he says, Hi that a fee? Una Isla

00:32:14--> 00:32:24

de la de una de la this my foster brother, una. So she actually says to him at that time, which is fascinating. She says under Roger.

00:32:26--> 00:32:30

Roger, no hurry when you're a man who's declared war.

00:32:31--> 00:33:13

You are a man who has declared war? Why would his wife be saying you are a man who has declared war? Because he had declared war? He single handedly instigated an entire battle. Right? He single handedly was keeping a war alive. Right? So this is this is somebody that in every sense of the word, isn't it? Many an enemy combatant. Right. This is not somebody who just decided to write an editorial piece is not somebody who just you know, came up with some poems, in which he maybe said some distasteful things about the profits a lot isn't as bad as that is. But what we need to understand over here is that no, no, no, he was involved in an act of war. NET declared war against

00:33:13--> 00:33:23

Medina and against the prophets, a lot of them and a Muslim. So she actually says that entourage, Haribo were in us having her be like Angie Luna, he had Isa

00:33:24--> 00:33:28

suhaila. She says oncology and the ingrown mojarra.

00:33:29--> 00:33:40

Were in US herbal, herbal ianz Luna via de ser, when you are at war, you don't go outside of your house at this hour of the night. Right. So handla thing about this is on the test.

00:33:41--> 00:34:00

This is all in the text. This is why our scholars they play so much our teachers, they play so much emphasis on going back to the source material. When you read him in his heart and you read him and concede and you read a lot. And you read the earliest sources of the Sierra, the most authentic sources of seed all the answers are all there.

00:34:02--> 00:34:45

It's not a cut and paste job. That's what the internet is full of. But what we need is an actual return to the source to the text itself. Right so she's hanging on to Robin. Robin how to be like Angie Luna via visa. When you're at war, you don't go outside at this time of the night, buddy. And so he says this is a bu na na na na na na, na, na na even my catani he says that if I was sleeping, you wouldn't even wake me up every night like to fly. Gentleman. Gentle, gentle soul. Right? If he found me sleeping, you wouldn't even wake me up. He'd be like, Oh, no, I don't want to wake him up. He will sit there and wait for me to wake up. That's when I you know, what are you talking about?

00:34:45--> 00:34:57

Let me go. So he wraps himself up. He goes outside. So they bring the weapons and they're like here, the weapons and everything that we've brought for the

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

door and the security deposit

00:35:00--> 00:35:42

It's so he says, Okay, great. And the narration Muhammad the Masai Mara the Allahu taala. Who says, cannot lay Latin America. It was a it was a night with the full moon. It was very bright outside beautiful, huge. The moon was huge looked huge, right? So we kind of set that why don't we go for a little walk in the moonlight, right? Just go walk, talk, reminisce, talk about old days old times. So he said, Sure, absolutely. So he said, we started kind of walking around outside the fortress. We had our little weapons with us and everything. And so as we're walking, of course, this man, right, he was wealthy, famous celebrity prominence, etc. So he really, you know, kind of used to spoil

00:35:42--> 00:35:55

himself in that regard, take care of himself like that. So you have long flowing hair, and his hair smelled really, really nice. Because he used to put like, you know, perfume in his hair. And so

00:35:57--> 00:36:26

Abu Nagila basically said to him being a brother, you know, he said, Man, your hair smells amazing. Right? So what do you put in your hair? What kind of shampoo do you use? Right? So he's like, Oh, you know, I put some perfume and this and that. And he's like, Oh, it's amazing. So he says, Do you mind if I smell your hair? Right? Let me check it out. So he says, Yeah, sure, brother. No problem, right? Weird brothers, right? So he says, Yeah, sure, brother, no problem. So he puts his head down, and abouna grabs his head.

00:36:28--> 00:36:32

And then he tells Mohammed been Muslim, and I forgot who else was with them.

00:36:34--> 00:36:35

It tells them go for it.

00:36:36--> 00:36:48

And they, and I want to mention this, and I'm going to give a disclaimer before I mentioned it, what I'm about to mention, and I will describe it from the text, but I will explain exactly what it says. Right.

00:36:50--> 00:36:53

And so I will explain it in as plain words as I can.

00:36:54--> 00:37:14

But um, the disclaimer I'm going to give you is that my intention is not what I add to the law, God forbid, it's not even permissible for us to do so. My intention is not to make fun of or to mock the Sahaba or the Allahu telang. But it is for a very specific reason and purpose that I'm going to translate it and explain it as explicitly as I'm going to.

00:37:16--> 00:37:40

So he says that, you know, he grabs his head, and he says that every bow I do Allah kill him. So he says, Allah, Allah, He flew home from Tunisia, 123 guys, they all got out their swords, and they all went at the same time and their swords hit each other. And Gabi, another chef is still standing there. Like, are you kidding me?

00:37:41--> 00:37:51

Right? Like, again, not to mock. But what I'm saying is like, you know, if there's like a pop fly, ball popped up in the air in the outfield,

00:37:53--> 00:38:03

to three different people running towards the ball to catch it, and what happens? If they're amateurs like me, then they run into each other, and nobody catches the ball.

00:38:05--> 00:38:23

These were not trained, skilled assassins. You see, I'm not making fun of the Sahaba either, but that's not even permissible. What I'm saying is that the Sahaba, this portrayal that the orientalist that the islamophobes after them, that even these

00:38:24--> 00:38:35

extremists, the rhetoric that they have, the portrayal that they've made of the Sahaba, and of this particular incident, as if these Muslims

00:38:37--> 00:38:40

would these cold hard assassins.

00:38:41--> 00:39:07

Right. They were these mysterious, super trained super skilled assassins, that would like fall out, step out of the shadows, right, take you out, and then reach retreat back into the shadows and disappear. Oh, you said something about the system. Done finish. Right? That that's the that's kind of the mental image that they've tried to portray both extremes.

00:39:08--> 00:39:17

The crazy extremists and the anti muslim camp. They both have the same portrayal of the Sahaba these assassins.

00:39:18--> 00:39:26

These were the Sahaba were who these unsought like I said, they were farmers. They were family men.

00:39:27--> 00:39:31

They had wives, they had children, elderly parents, they looked after.

00:39:33--> 00:39:45

Then what happened when they accepted Assad and he became worshippers. tarragon. ruka answered Jaden, yep, una fata Mina La, La La, Seema, Seema houfy will do him in a serie sujood

00:39:46--> 00:39:51

you every time you look at them, you see them in real court. You see them in sujood you see them praying.

00:39:52--> 00:39:55

That's what the Sahaba that's what these

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

are skilled assassins. So when the opportunity game they

00:40:00--> 00:40:13

All got out their swords kind of fumbling with their swords and they're all sorts clanged against each other and holding like, What are you guys doing? And so then they again go at it and one of them

00:40:14--> 00:40:17

actually ends up stabbing another one of them

00:40:19--> 00:40:22

and harder had it even EDNOS he was one of the other ones.

00:40:23--> 00:41:00

I'll have it even owes. One of the other Muslims ends up stabbing one of the other Muslims. Friendly fire. Right? So one Muslim stabs another Muslim by accident Mrs. cabanillas shortcuts another Muslim, and now he's been stabbed in the leg with the sword and he's screaming. He's like, what are you doing? The other guy is like, What are y'all doing right? So finally, someway, somehow Mohammed bin muslimah regains kind of some control of the situation and plunges his sword into carbonyl Ashraf, and finally the whole ordeal is over. Like, if you saw this play out, you could tell that these are not trained killers.

00:41:01--> 00:41:03

Right? They were trying to avoid a war

00:41:05--> 00:41:07

that eventually did happen.

00:41:08--> 00:41:10

Right and took the lives of 70 Sahaba.

00:41:11--> 00:41:13

That's what they were trying to avoid.

00:41:14--> 00:41:17

Right? Because this man single handedly was making that war happen.

00:41:19--> 00:41:21

And so this is how they killed cabinet I should have.

00:41:22--> 00:42:07

This is some way somehow we make it back to the prophets a lot. He said I'm carrying the one guy who's been stabbed in the leg. We've come back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the prophets a lot from Caesars covered in blood. One guy is bleeding out of his leg. Right? We're all like, nervous and freaked out like all of us are pale. And he's like, Is everything okay? He says everything's alright. deed is done. jasola he says okay, and hamdulillah and then the prophets Allah decent. And then of course makes da he applies his saliva to the wound of hadith of Boulos, right as the margins of the messenger sallallahu alayhi. Salam, the miraculous act, how he could heal people

00:42:07--> 00:42:07

like that.

00:42:09--> 00:42:48

And so that basically is the incidence of GABA shut off. And that basically did put there were some other instigators we talked about the new a new car, there were also some instigators of war amongst the lead that basically put everyone else on notice. So it did accomplish the purpose in the sense of anyone else that was trying to instigate war, immediately got quiet immediately stopped and said, You know what, we better stop. Because these people will basically take whatever measures they have to in order to be able to protect the sanctity of their homes, the sanctity of their community, the sanctity of their lives. All right, so this was the incident of Goblin chef. And so I ended up

00:42:48--> 00:43:09

talking about it in the middle. But this is exactly what I wanted to comment at the very end is that the rhetoric surrounding the incidence of Goblin rush of katroo Gabriela shut off the assassination or the killing of Goblin will Ashraf is something that, you know, by both opposite camps by both extreme camps is portrayed in a very,

00:43:10--> 00:43:46

you know, false light is very falsely portrayed, right, where both sides want to present it as these were Muslims, assassinating anybody who would dare say anything that they did not approve of. Well, that was the farthest thing from the truth. gabin Russia had declared war had instigated war had single handedly raised an army in Makkah to attack the Muslims, which became the Battle of word, right. And on top of that, even in the incident, you are able to see that the Sahaba radi Allahu taala. And home killing was the thing that they were not good at.

00:43:47--> 00:43:48

Right, they could worship.

00:43:50--> 00:44:01

They were worshippers. They were people who were devout. They were people who were dedicated. They were people who were, you know, committed. People who are pious and righteous,

00:44:02--> 00:44:31

good family, people, farmers hard working salt of the earth. Right people who got their hands dirty with their own work. That's who they were. Right. They weren't trained killers and assassins. And we're able to see this from this particular incident. So when you go back to the original source text such as Urbanus, Hawk, wacky, the debris, urban conceit, and you go back to the source sex, you're able to find the truth of the matter, and the exact reality behind the killing of Goblin will Ashraf and that I believe was

00:44:32--> 00:44:34

not sure if I mentioned the dates.

00:44:35--> 00:44:41

It was of course during the third year of the profits, a lot of these homes residents in the city of Medina and

00:44:43--> 00:44:59

I do not have the dates in front of me, but obviously it was after Giamatti Lula, but prior to show while to somewhere in between there, either during the month of Raja or Siobhan was when Gavin Ashraf was killed was assassinated.

00:45:00--> 00:45:29

And that still was not enough in order to be able to prevent the Battle of the hood, so insha Allah in the coming session, we will start talking about the Battle of boyhood, and the the days leading up to the battle and then the battle itself in sha Allah May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability in the tofik to practice everything that was said and heard. So Hanalei will be hungry he semana de la who will be huntik Nationale La la la mesophilic una to be Lake
