Smell it will Abdullah salatu wa salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was army marine shala continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a siracha Naga, we are the prophetic biography.
In the previous session, we talked about
some of the events of the third year of hedger, the third year of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his residents in the city of Medina, over the last couple of sessions, what we've been talking about some of the incidents that occurred after the Battle of bud that we've been talking about post but but what's very interesting, and I've mentioned this before, as well, whenever you discuss
events that are Post button, you have to keep in mind as well, at the same time, that anything that is post budget is pretty good. What I mean by saying that is obviously not just in terms of the, you know, the chronological order that if something came after that it obviously came before Medina, excuse me, it obviously came before the Battle of boyhood. But what I mean by that as well is that a lot of the events that happened after the Battle of butter happened because of what transpired at the Battle of butter. And
all of those events were directly tied to eventually lead to what would end up happening at the Battle of boyhood. So they all culminated into the battle hood. So everything is kind of tied together in this particular period, and time of the life of the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam, and everything that is transpiring, politically, socially, community, everything that is happening at this time, it is all very closely tied together.
So what we're going to be talking about today in sha Allah is the Battle of hood itself. So first and foremost,
when did about liberal hood occur? So the general consensus? Well, actually, we know for a fact that it occurred in the third year of
the third year of the profits, a lot of recent residents in the city of Medina. The second thing is that there is again a consensus amongst the scholars that it occurred in the month of chawan. It happened in the month of Shadwell. So there was after Ramadan, but that happened in Ramadan. And so this happened 13 months after this happened 13 months after but as far as the data is concerned, majority of the scholars in the popular position of the CETA is that it occurred in the middle of the month of chawan without any specification of a date. However, some scholars of this era have specifically said that it occurred on the
11th of the month of chawan, which also was a Sunday. So some of the scholars have gotten a little bit more specific in his heart. And others they say that the Miss Truman Show Well, it happened in the middle of the month of chawan. But then some of them patata and others are more specific where they say was a Sunday, Yama, Sept. And it was the Aloha Dr. Sharman chawan. So this was the 11th day of the month of show one. So either way, we know that it happened in the month of show while in the third year of his 13 months after the Battle of better.
The second thing is that of course the battle took place at the place of the battle occurred at the place of overheard why why is it called or heard or heard is specifically the name of a mountain there. It's a small mountain where the battle took place and it took place right close to there. And that's why if anyone's ever been for hygiene ombre when you go for this era to Medina, then oftentimes you will end up visiting the place of or hood right and where the shuhada are. And so that is where the battle took place. There's a little bit of a discussion amongst the scholars of the Sierra that talk about why is it called overheard. So even Kathy Rahim, Allahu Allah He says
Samia Odin, Odin, Lita wahoo, the human min Benitez Jeevan, even cathi Rahim Allah hota Allah says when you go there, you see that there are you know, groups of kind of mountains, like almost like a mini mountain range of the area and what kind of is separated from all of them? Or how this kind of standing on its own. And so, they say that or hood what is called Oh Hodor he was named by the people of that area, because Lita Why would he because it stands separate from the rest of the mountains. The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in a narration in a Hadith, or houden jab alone you have buena when
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this hadith is from the Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim is
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said or heard, it is a mountain. We
It loves us and we love it. Now the scholars have discussed and talked about what does that exactly mean? What does that refer to? So one of the opinions of the scholars is obviously, as you can assume the prophets a lot ism is literally talking about the mountain that this is a beloved place. This place loves us, and we love it. It is a beloved place. And as we talk about the Battle of war hood, you might and you might already know some things about the battle, that you might be thinking to yourself. But wait, didn't a lot of tragedies occur at the Battle of our heart? Then why is the profits all of a sudden I'm saying your head Buddha winner hibou it loves this and we love it.
Right? It loves us and we love it. Why would he say that about a place where such tragedies occurred? Like even the killing and the mutilation of his uncle Hamza radi Allahu taala? Well, the answer to that is that granted, yes. And we're going to talk about these things, that even those were sacrifices, those were sacrifices that were made. And Allah subhanho wa Taala, praise them in the last panel with Allah accepted them. And Allah spoke about their forgiveness and their rank and their nobility and their honor. And not only that, but when you look at it, what has transpired over the last 1400 years, it has become a place where people visit from all over the world. All over the
world. There are some days at the busier times of year, like around the time of Hajj, in the month of Ramadan, when the busier times of the year, were at any one given time, there might be 10s of 1000s of people that are simultaneously present at the same place. Hundreds of 1000s of people come and go in the same day. So imagine how many millions if not 10s of millions of people visit that same exact place every single year, and then try to just calculate how many people have visited there over 1400 years. And when they go there, what do they do? This is not like a tourist attraction, like how we go to see places where they go there. They take some places they eat some
food, right? They hang around for a little bit and people leave no, no. They go there. And they pray there. And they make do either and they ask Allah for forgiveness there. And they talk about the messenger Salafi some there they are on there, they talk about the ayat of the Quran, they send, you know, there to ask for the Shahada.
They send Salawat on the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they cry, you know, tears when they go there. So think about all the blessings that are occur at that blessing place. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam statement, without a doubt is confirmed. Were the prophets. A lot of them said this is a place that loves us and we love it. It is a source of blessing. All right. Sometimes we don't recognize blessings on the on the outside, but they ended up becoming blessings for us. Right I said unto him, Bhushan Kumar, Sangakkara Hussain,
right. So initially there was tragedy, there was heartache, there was sadness, there was loss. But that loss in that tragedy in that heartache was not just a loss, it was an investment. And till today, we're sitting halfway across the world 1400 years later talking about the battle level hood,
and talking about it in a way that inspires us and motivates us and captivates us. Right. So it's a remarkable blessing. Some of the scholars have also said that
the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he actually said Odin, Jabba loon, you had Buddha when he said this about the mountain of 100. Because whenever the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would travel outside of Medina, and when they would be getting back home to Medina, they would oftentimes stop right outside of Medina, oftentimes near the place of hurt, they would stop there, and they would camp there overnight. If they were reaching Medina during the evening time, instead of going ahead on into Medina in the evening time, you know, kind of you get home early and you surprise your family, but they would be gone for weeks, if not months. So what they would do is
they would arrive they would camp out there and stay the night there and early in the morning, then they would go ahead and rejoin their families. And there was a lot of wisdom to this. The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in one Hadith, he instructed and explained to the Sahaba why I tell you to do this, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, so that your family members have the time and the opportunity to know that you've gotten home that you will be coming tomorrow and they can prepare accordingly. They can anticipate your arrival. You can similarly kind of take an evening, take a break clean up, freshen up a little bit, so that you are also fresh when you get
home to your family members. And the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Also in a hadith he says a lot of robotic lumati Fukuda bright Boudicca, Luma, TV buku, he had the prophets, a lot of them said there is greater blessing in the early morning. So always try to do something good and noteworthy in the early part of the morning, so going into rejoin your families early in the morning is better, there's more Buttercup, there's more blessing. Plus, then you get the rest of the day, to be able to spend quality time with your families whom you
You have missed very much and they've missed you. Right because the prophets a lot he said I'm when he says he's a sufferer of Qatar terminal as one of the scholars was asked when the taby own he was asked lumada Why is traveling a piece of punishment? He said he mafara, Bob, because you're away from the people that you love. Right? So this is one reason why the prophets a lot of them said this. And then of course, another very beautiful reason is when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said I had to Odin, Javelin, you have been our head boo, that offered is a mountain it loves us and we love it. He was actually referring to the people that live there near open, which is Medina, which are
the unsought the prophets a lot of the 17
majan naming the place instead of the people. He was trying to say that and this is an element of Bulava eloquence. He was saying that the unsought are so beloved to me. The unsought are so beloved to us, they have so much love for us and we have so much love for them, that even the place where they live has become Beloved. Even the place where they occupy has become Beloved. Right and that's why I'm so Haley Rahim Allahu taala, one of the earlier scholars of the cedaw he actually commented on this by adding the Hadith of the prophets a lot of em Alma oma hub, that a person will be with whosoever he or she loves, right, so that because you love the unsought, you will be amongst the
unsought and with the inside. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant is their company.
So this is the Battle of our hood, it occurred in the third year in the middle of the month of show while at the place of the mountain of code. Allah subhanaw taala speaks about it, just like we saw with sudo tool,
excuse me, with has written about that with the Battle of Baghdad in solitude and fun, Allah speaks about it in detail. Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the Battle of boyhood in detail in Surah. Allah Emraan from is 121 to 179. From is 121 to 179 Allah speaks about the Battle of boyhood, and we'll go through the ins and take a look at them in sha Allah at our conclusion of the discussion of the Battle of Baba. But Allah subhanho wa Taala says very briefly, just to kind of get started where it is I don't I mean, I only got to go with me Nina makari Italia Allahu Semyon Allah. Allah subhanaw taala says, Remember when you left your home
and you left your family, taking the believers along with you and preparing them for battle will love who sent me on a limb and Allah subhanho wa Taala was listening and allies always fully aware of each and every single thing.
And so now moving forward from here to talk about kind of how about liberal hood all came together? So as we've talked about in previous generations, even as half of our hammer la hotel taala he mentions llama ocba Yama, butterman Kufa, Qureshi, honeybee one Raja follow him Illa maka, that when everything that had happened at Burger happened, the loss, the death of the killing of some of their key leaders, and the news and the defeated army, reached back arrived back in Mecca. And there was all that lamenting of the loss and there was a lot of self loathing, and there was a lot of humiliation both in and outside of Macau because of what transpired at but that generation says that
Abdullah Abdullah, even Abby robbia, aka Rama, Rama, even Abidjan and Safari bin Amaya these three key individuals, right, who had all lost, you know, family members, and they were kind of the next generation of leaders of Quraysh. They came to Abu sufian Abu Sufyan was basically you know, the only surviving elder from the leadership of kurush. So he was the last surviving of the older guard. And so because of that, he had become the de facto leader of McCann. kurush. And so they came to him, and they said that fieri journeymen pradesh women who see ba ba, ba ba,
ba ba, ba ba Sofia woman Canada who fetal color Eamon Quraysh teacher Rajan. So when Abu sufian had come back, remember, Battle of butter happened because Abu sufian had a caravan with a lot of goods and a lot of money. And the Muslims were gonna go intercept the caravan and that led to the Battle of budget. Whenever soufiane came back with all this wealth and all this investment, they came to Savannah and they said look for a new nappy having money as a hobby
husana they said that you do us a favor. Do us a favor. And that is that look what happened to us look at the Muslim situation. Look at Mohammed Salah responded to us. So what we would like to ask of you is all this money in the wealth that you've come back with with this trade caravan. We want you to invest this donate this to the war fund. Let us build and raise an army that can go in exactly
revenge from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Muslims.
So Abu sufian went ahead and agreed, and this is referred to Allah subhanaw taala speaks about this in the Quran as well in sootel and fowl which is about bother, but Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking about what happens after bedded in Allah vena cava. Una Amala Julio De Anza vilella fossa une fille una through much Akuma Anakin Hassan Suma uvala buena Willa vena cava, Willa Johanna Sharon, this ayah is about bother but some of them who facilitate also contains kind of like an implicit, it contains a hint towards about level hood that Allah subhanho wa Taala says those who disbelieved they are spending their wealth to prevent people from following the path of God, and
they will very soon spend it. But then they will regret their choice and eventually they will be defeated. And so when Allah says they are spending their wealth that refers to abundance, go to law says first say you're gonna have very soon they will spend more of it.
This is referring to the bad love. And then when it says through my uvula born, then they will be dominated they will be defeated. The scholars say that this is pointing and hinting towards fetch Homer aka the conquest of Makkah. So this is a very powerful layer, basically outlining the the events that would occur in the Medina and period from butter to fetch, from battle to the conquest of Mecca.
So anyways, qure started kind of getting together and you know, amassing all their goods and their army and their people, and also their alliances and their allegiances. So one of the things that they did was they
collaborated with other tribes, but Nuki, Nana, and the people of T Hama, benaki, Nana, and annunci, Hama, these were other tribes that were outside of Makkah, they went to them big, they entered into an agreement with them and they allied along with them. Similarly, there were the people that were called the hobby, a hobby. Now, sometimes when people hear that they think of how Bashar can sometimes the people of habit are also referred to as hobbies, but these were not the people of Habesha.
There was actually a mountain that was outside of Mecca, called habashi.
The mountain itself was called, excuse me, it was called habashi. The mountain was called fukushi. And so there were some tribes that lived around that mountain, there were some people that live near that mountain, and because of the mountain mismo, ilaha javin. They they were called a hobby. And so what the people of makoa Declaration was they went and they entered into a strategic alliance with the rubbish the people who live in is near this mountain, with the people of Ghana and the people of T Hama. So now that they had an alliance as well, somewhat of an alliance. At the same time, they said that we need some type of propaganda machine we spoke about gabagool, Ashraf, the half Jewish
half Arab poet, who is a part of that propaganda machine. Along with it, there is the interesting case of Abu Isaiah. Isaiah was a man who came with the courage to fight against Muslims, and but he didn't have any money to give us ransom. So he pleaded with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam don't allow me to go the prophets, a lot of them you can said you can go with one condition, you take an oath that you won't fight the Muslims anymore. Right? The prophets, a lot of humans about building these relationships. So he agreed, and he swore an oath that he will not fight the Muslims. He was a poet. And so when he went back to Mecca, some of the people of the parade, they
specifically came to him. And they told him that inika in Rhode Island, for Annapolis, Anika was lunch mahana. They said, You're a poet. So why don't you help us? Why don't you be kind of a spokesman for us, you know, help us with the propaganda and the recruitment of an army and come with us. So he even said, he said that, look, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did me a favor. And I told him I wouldn't fight. They said that, well, if you're willing to fight with us so far away, he told us. So he said, he tells him in raw data omega.
That, you know, if you come back alive, which is what we'll try to do, I will make you a rich man. And that was that was not a wealthy man. So he was very much enticed by this offer, and unfortunately ended up accepting the offer. And he became a key part of their recruitment in terms of recruiting an army. Some of his poems and things like that are also mentioned. Where he says i bunny Abdi mannatech husum and to hamato Abu hammy Leia do Nina Samba de la de la to slimani laiya Hello Islami that he basically was calling on the coloration he's saying that you know you are honorable people, this children of honorable men. So he says that
You should, you know, this is this is your year basically trying to say this is your year. This is your moment. And that, you know, I'm not with this Psalm and I'm with you. In another place. He will, you know, it talks about another poets, who was also a part of this recruitment effort, saying Yamani model has a big impact on me, and she does well with that. tadami manggarai Rahim in Mamma mia homie and Helfer worstall Bella del mojarra, me in the hottie mill Coubertin, Masami that again, he was kind of enticing them and saying, What's wrong with you? You are people of honor, you are people in the family, you are people of a great tribe, why aren't you offended by what happened to
your family members, you are the you should take an oath right here in the sacred land in the sacred place of Makkah, that you will exact revenge. So they ended up in this way in this manner, kind of gathering together an army and getting people together. They had the money. Now they were getting the people together, they had the alliances in place. And this is where also specifically the story comes in. That will continue a little bit later on. We're going to talk about specifically in a session, but you may have been wondering, who was one of the leaders of the place.
He had a slave, an African slave, habashi, slave, East African slave by the name of washi. The story was very famous. And so why she was specifically known as being kind of like an expert marksman kind of like what we would call a sniper. He was an expert marksman actually, one of the things that he you know he would hire him out to do is almost like a form of entertainment at their carnivals and festivals and things like that. He would you know, kind of, you know, display and show off his aim and his skill. And so he would be like a part of the entertainment. So you wake up in water and goes to washy and he says that
I want you to go with the army that's getting ready to go for in antipatterns Hamza, Amina Mohammed be army to imma took no ID for antibiotic. So he says that
I want you to go with the army. And if you are able to kill the uncle of Mohammed salatu salam Hamza, even Abdullah Talib, in Revenge of my uncle who was killed at the Battle of brother whose name was door, I must have no idea that I will free you for antibiotic, you are freed from the bonds of slavery. So the narration basically mentions that thrush along with all their allies of kena aunty hammer, they got every and they are hobbies, they got together. They had about 3002 people 3000 soldiers, and they started marching towards Medina. One of the interesting things again, there were a lot of you know, this was
there were a lot of strong emotions and MCI at this time. They saw this as a as you know, their chance to exact revenge. And so one of the things that they did was that they took their wives they took their women. So in butter, remember, they took women, but the women that they took were like, you know, Southern lights, not a good thing, but they took like hired women, you know, maybe for singing and dancing and even, you know, prostitutes and things like that. They took the brush. The McKenzie took women like this in a hood. That's not who they took it over. They took their own wives. They took their own daughters. Actually some of the books of Sierra mentioned very
specifically about soufiane saladna. hub, whose name is Sokka.
Abu sufian. He took his wife Hindi bin to Atiba with him. A crema, the Sarah Babu, john took his wife,
who was also his cousin, Omar Hakim bentall Harris.
How'd it even he Shan took his wife Fatima Bentonville he the Merida Sophia safarnama took his wife, beta zarbin to Mr.
America last he took his wife Ray, whose name was Beretta Vince Muna. Who was the mother of Abdullah Abdullah bin Ahmed bin Alas, right they will eventually became a Muslim, but alas, brought his wife as well. And there's many others that have mentioned that who specifically took their wives. So what you're seeing here is that even the leaders of the army you don't typically you would expect that they would you know, make somebody else take their women if they needed women for work. No, but the leaders of the army took their wives and their specific mentality their key the their strategy or their mentality in taking their wives was that lt Mohsen happy to lie federal.
They basically took it took their wives as motivation. They took their own families or wives and daughters as motivation, that look come You know, running
away from the battlefield is not an option we got women.
Right? So we have people that we have to look after. So no running from the battlefield.
And we have to win.
Defeat is not an option. Otherwise what will happen to our womenfolk not realizing of course the Muslims weren't like the way that they were. The Muslims wouldn't, you know, treat their women the way that Victoria's armies oftentimes treat women will either be law, but nevertheless that was their mentality. They were just thinking what would we do if we won the battle and they had their women fought with them? What would we do with their women folk? So now if we take our women folk we're basically saying you know, like, they kind of give the example you know, an army arrives at the shore and then burns their ships, no return. This is it, no going back retreats is not an
option. So this was the mentality of declarations they went into the battle.
So anyways, they start traveling in the direction of
the start traveling in the direction of Medina.
When they arrived near Medina, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was informed for Lama semi auto semi human also likes a lot of human Muslim on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam was informed that look there's an army of 3000 foot h Moroccans and their allies who have arrived near Medina.
The prophets a lot of them summoned, the Muslims gathered everyone together in Medina. And he told them about what the situation was.
And there's multiple narrations I'll share a couple of them because they all vary from one another just minorly but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he called me to Allah hi Ron, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I've seen something Allah subhanho wa Taala by fate on the scholars mentioned that manna who ye Allah has showed me something that the prophets a lot of them saw a dream. He said right a tuba Quran truth by
I saw that a cow or an ox, right is being sacrificed is being killed.
I saw that an ox or a bull is being killed an animal What are a trophy, the Bobby safey Thelma.
And I saw that the tip of my sword is broken
that the sword you know were sharp the point at the end of the sword word sharp said that I saw that that is chipped off. It is broken.
What are aid to me and how to defeat dinner in Hasina team. And the profits. A lot of them said that I saw that I put my hand inside of my armor to protect myself. You know so like you can imagine when it's cold, you put your hands inside of your pocket. Or you might see your kids do something like you know when it gets cold and they'll pull their arms inside their sleeves inside of their shirt. Right to seek refuge from the cold. The profits a lot of them said that I saw that I put my hands inside of my armor to protect my hands for a while to heart Almudena. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said the interpretation of the dream is that the animal has been sacrificed which is
representative of a loss of blood, blood flowing which is a loss of life. Muslims will die. I've been shown that Muslims will die.
This is the decree of Allah.
And I've seen that the sword is broken. The sword being broken the scholars discuss it at quite some length. What does that exactly the promises are mean by that some mentioned that again that there will be you know some difficulty in battle. But some of the scholars actually mentioned that it also refers to the fact that the prophets a lot of them will be injured himself in the battle. And some actually mentioned that one of the people you know that the prophets a lot of Islam has had referred to as a strength of the Muslims which was Hamza radi Allahu Allahu Allahu as pseudo rasili. Right. And the prophets, a lot of them would actually you don't, he would eventually give the title of
safer law to Holodomor will lead by the Allahu taala. But the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also referred to Hamza as one of the CFL muslimeen, one of the swords of the Muslims. He is the sharp end of the army of the Muslims, the sharp end of the sword of the Muslims. So some say that this means that the prophets a lot of humans kind of foretold that the Muslims will lose someone very key to the Muslim community. And that was the death of Hamza. Some even say that because it was holiday relief, which we will talk about in discussing the battle who is very who played a key role in the turning of events on the neighborhood, that it was actually alluding to the fact that the sword will
actually you know, fight against us. Later on it will join them as soon as but the sword will be pointed against us. And then one of his that the promises of himself will be injured either way. It's again, representative, symbolic of loss
So life will be lost. Right there will be a loss in terms of like even our position in the battlefield. And then the prophets, a lot of them saying that I saw that I put my hands inside of my armor to protect them and he said the armor. The armor is symbolic and representative of the city of Medina. So the prophets a lot of them said that we must stay inside of Medina.
That is our best chance of protecting ourselves.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a more longer narration that's a little bit more explicit and very interesting. The prophets a lot of them said, Well, he filmed Anam
amin Makita Illa.
I had seen in a dream that I would leave Makkah and migrate to a place where there are abundant day pumps they trees for that, but why li la la mama? Oh hijo I thought for a moment that maybe that was a place of yamamah for either here, Medina to be afraid, but rather it was Medina or what you used to call yesterday, what are a to Pharaoh Yaga had he and he has to say funfun kata Sadhguru.
I also saw in a dream that I drew out my sword, but it broke for either Who am I, I mean, I knew
that it was representative of the loss of life of the Muslims on the neighborhood.
Then I drew another sword for other for either as an American Monica, but then returned back
then the sword returned back even better than it was before. For example, imagine
he made a movie. And that was representative of the conquest of Mecca, symbolic of the conquest of Mecca, virtual Mecca, and how the Muslims were gathered and given strength by Allah, what he has done Bukhara, and I also saw this animal
we're lucky Hayden, the prophets, a lot of them said this is good. It seems like it's bad. But some good would come from this for a phenomenal meaning.
That it was basically the people who died or were killed. In the Battle of offered were either hadal myjalah, who be human in Haiti with RBC, the lady at analog Atala, who, by the oma the Prophet sallallaahu Selim said that the good is a good that Allah subhanaw taala bestowed and the reward of standing firm and standing true and standing tall in the face of the challenges that will come before us after the Battle of butter. And this is basically speaking about the Battle of war.
So this was basically what transpired
pre battle. So now that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had communicated this to them.
There was a little bit of a, there was a little bit of a
there was some discussion amongst the Muslims, even though Ambassador the Allahu taala and Houma he releases that cannot be Sal, Allahu Allah, his llama Jaga Mashallah Guna, Yama, offroad, cannot you and you pay my bill Medina, for you.
Right that when the neighborhood came the prophets, Allah isms, initial position or opinion thought was that we should stay in Medina and fights and fight from there and that it's better off for us. And some of the books of Sierra even discuss that because the way that even Medina was constructed the profitsystem even kind of had, you know, taken a look at Medina and consulted with some people. And the way that even Medina was kind of built and constructed that some of the homes that were at the edge of Medina could almost serve as a makeshift fort. And they basically would position themselves on top of the homes in a way that were as they were kind of coming in to Medina, the army
would come into Medina, it would kind of, you know, siphon them off, it would siphon and kind of filter them through thinning them out a little bit. And then from having the vantage point from being on top, they would basically be able to thin out the herd from there, they'd be able to, you know,
to quite an extent, incur huge losses upon the army. And what they would do is they would take all the women and children in Medina and put them on the opposite end on the opposite side of Medina as far away as possible from the action and from there, maintain their strategic vantage point, and just just be there and continue to repel them. And they were fairly confident that we can incur we can inflict rather excuse me, we can inflict upon them serious enough casualties in terms of numbers to the point where eventually will repel them, and they'll be forced to leave and retreat. So this was kind of the idea so there was some strategy to this.
the Allahu taala and Houma he says that there was a little bit of a discussion among some of the Muslim
For Pamela hoonah. So let me show you
some of the Sahaba who did not participate in about the butter because remember, the Battle of butter was not expected to be a battle when they left Medina, they thought they were going to intercept the caravan, it turned into the bundle of butter. And butter is not right outside of Medina is farther away from Medina. So there wasn't even the opportunity to be able for people to come out and join
so many of the Sahaba when they heard about the stories about that, and the virtue of that, and everything that transpired about that, they felt like they had missed out.
So they said

sallallahu miembros de Lena begin and Yaba data hooba malaba ha ha Takuma La Habana who have been adduce so they kept insisting on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam take us with you. Let's go out there and let's meet them out there. Multiple narrations talk about this. So the narrations mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he thought about it. He said, Okay, let's think about it. As far as they were concerned, tentatively, tentatively The plan was, we're going to stay in Medina and repelled the kurush from Medina, from this makeshift fortress that we have.
The narration mentioned that the next day was the day of July, it was the day of Friday.
And the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he led the Sahaba into Juma prayer.
After Juma one of the banana jar, one of the Muslims have been in a jar when the Muslims of the Assad who have passed away the Prophet of Allah Allah sallallahu Sallam performed his janazah and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went home. When the Prophet sallallahu Sallam went home, he put on his armor. And when he came out, from his home, he was wearing the armor.
And when the Sahaba saw him, that there was some, you know, kind of regret and remorse.
Because non stop until then, you know, some people were kind of insisting to the prophets a lot. So then there were some remorse, some of their agency, some of the elders of the unsought went to some of these younger men, who are you know, insisting to the prophets, a lot of women kind of said, like, Look what you did. You make the prophets a lot more comfortable. Right, and you kept insisting, now he's doing this because you insisted or you requested, right? So they came to the Prophet, some of these women, they said, O Messenger of Allah, let's stay in Medina, for
you are correct on messenger of Allah, we feel bad. We shouldn't have insisted we shouldn't have done what we did. Instead, what we said, and the prophets, a lot of them said, No, no, it is not appropriate. It is not befitting of a prophet of God that he puts on when he puts on his armor, that he remove it until he has met the enemy in the battlefield.
Right where people have conviction
or people have conviction. Regardless of what we're doing, put on the ROM we go for Hajj or Umrah. We don't come back otherwise, when we go do we go pray. And we put on the armor that we go into the battlefield. So this is what we're doing now. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
He gathered all the Muslims together and basically told everyone to prepare and to gather together and in fact, what it also mentioned that Hamza bin Abdul Mutallab radi Allahu Allah Andrew, at that time, once the prophets a lot, he made up his mind. He came to the prophets a lot of the time and he said that messenger of God, don't worry about it, whether the Angela alagille, kitayama, Lenovo, Lenovo. dilemna that I swear by the one who sent the peran down upon your messenger of God, we will fight them
and we will meet them in the battlefield. So they ended up going into the battlefield. And
there's now some of the stories. One of the
Norman Eben Malik infallible, who is from Bhanu Salim, he came to the prophets a lot of these ruins in Ghana via La La hymnal, Janata la criminal agenda.
For one leadin fcba de la de la. He said, O Messenger of God, do not deprive us of the opportunity to go to Jenna
Because I swear by Allah, I will go to gender.
Right? So the prophets a lot he's intrigued by the man's convictions. Right? He said Bhima. With what? Like what makes you so confident? He said be a NEO humble la Sula, who I love align His Messenger.
That's good enough. I love aligners messenger. Well, I feel yoma zaf and I'm willing to prove it that when we go into the battlefield, I will not run for calella, who rasuluh likes a lot even said that. The prophets, a lot of them said, You have spoken the truth. The narration says was to see the Yama even, this was the death of the Prophet ceylonese him when the profitsystem says that he has spoken the truth, that's it. And he will say he done the day of work with me died on the neighborhood and was from amongst the Shahada.
So, once they gathered everyone together, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
started to set out
towards the place of Ohio, they started to leave.
They started to leave Medina to go out and meet the enemy in the battlefield. At that time, the narrations mentioned that there were 1000 there were 1000 people with the Muslims.
So the Muslim army was 1000 people, and the army of Lucia goon was 3000. But what ended up happening was when they as soon as he arrived at the place of code, and the army of the machico had arrived there as well. Abdullah even obey even saloon who is known as
he was the leader of the hypocrites. He at that time, confronted the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam quite disrespectfully. And he said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that
in a tomb and juki Mobile Medina T.
hatefulness, Aloo Fina Pamela Pamela beshara macabre,
Alina Katana whom fear rather Excuse me. So this was what was said so I'm delighted Raven saloon. He came to the Prophet sallallahu Allah who sent me see Rasul Allah, La Jolla him. Let's not fight them out here. He said for one lucky Maharaja minha Illa Illa de la Saba Mina. He said Listen, I've lived in Medina longer than you have. You know kind of when somebody takes that tone, listen, listen. I've lived Medina much longer than you have. All right, I've been around longer than you have. I know you think you know what you're doing but let me tell you how things work. Every time we go outside or Medina and we fight somebody we lose.
And he says that
while at the HA HA Elena Illa sadhna mean who but every time that people try to come in attack us in Medina we defeat them for so but eventually when the prophets Allah did make the decision to go out to Ohio and he says to the Prophet, he says at that time is Sakura is decorah hana Rasul? rasulillah. He said, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said that the prophets a lot of a sudden forced us to come out of here. So a BA was on Asami
a TA who Masami Mohammed would rather listen to some of these riffraff and ignore what I'm telling you, magnetically allama nocturnal and Susannah Hakuna yohannes Why should we kill ourselves Mohammed doesn't even listen to us.
So he took the people that basically he had brought with him
back to Medina, and those were about 300 people. So he abandoned the Muslim army
along with 300 of his own supporters, thereby decreasing the number of Muslims down to 700 people.
It also mentioned that that time, that some of the people came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and they said, O Messenger of Allah, should we ask some of the Jews to join us? And the answer is no hanaa even Rasul Allah likes a lot isn't Phyllis theology behala Eman? Yehuda Medina, let us ask some of the Medina Jews. They are our allies. These This is basically an attack on Medina it's over the train outside of Medina. And if you don't go to Ohio, then they'll come into Medina. We should ask some of our allies the Medina Jews to come and fight with us. The prophets a lot of times Allah had to tell him we don't need them.
We don't need them. Look, they're not going to come. They're gonna make all types of excuses. They're gonna pretend like they're coming and then back out of it. Like this man Abdullah bin obey. He took his people and backed out as well. The prophets a lot of them said we don't need him and we don't need this 300 and we don't need those people either.
We can handle this situation.
And so at that time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes out to Odin and he said they settle down in the hood
when Abdullah innovativen saloon retreated with his 300 people, but who salema and Balu harita banu salema haritha these were two of the unsavoury tribes. These are two of the Arab tribes in Medina two of the unsavoury tribes, but who Solomon specifically were the people were the one of the first Muslim was one of the first prayer places was established outside of Medina, we within Medina there was kooba, which was outside of Medina and but no salema. So when we Solomon bunu, haritha,
there was some unrest in their ranks. They were amongst the 700 Muslims.
But there were some unrest in their ranks. And there was some discussion about leaving and going back, that we should also abandon ship.
And we should go back to Medina as well. This is not a good idea.
But then what ended up happening is that they were able to recover amongst themselves and reaffirm their convictions and intentions and they ended up staying. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about this incident Allah Emraan when Allah says if hematite if a tiny men come and have shala
two groups from amongst the Muslims, they thought about leaving, they thought about abandoning will la who will leave you Houma. But Allah subhanaw taala is their ally. While the lucky for me a token
and only upon a ledger believers put their trust and their dependents in reliance. Jabir bin Abdullah javelina Abdullah who is from Bhanu salema he was asked, Does that ever bother you?
jabiru la de la de la junta who is from Bhanu cinema, he was a Sir, I ever bother you.
Right? A lot of saying, it doesn't matter if at any moment of shala your thought about jumping ship. You thought about abandoning Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam
in the army of the Muslims? Does it stink when you hear that? He said
I would not have it any other way than that I are coming down. I would not have it any other way. I love this ayah no is more beloved to me and the entire Koran Why? He says don't you read the rest of the i o Allahu Allahu Allahu Allah, Allah. Allah said he is our friend. Yeah, we were weak. But Allah said he is our friend. So I love this ayah right. So
when some of this initial sorting out occurred at that particular time, that the Muslims were able to kind of gather themselves, the moon after they left, right, it was actually a filtering that Allah provided so that they will not have hypocrites running around amongst them once the battle actually started. And the the battle was raging and intensified. So the motion on the left, right, some of the Muslims who are we known were believers were a little shaken up, but then they were able to kind of gather themselves and strengthen themselves, you know, and that now they settled down 700 Muslims ready to go at the place of a hood across from them 3000 machines lined up, armed, ready to
go ready to fight. Now I bet at this particular time, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would make some very key strategic decisions about the battle right about the mountain pass, placing the archers there about some of the key warriors and soldiers the prophets a lot somewhat identify and place them at the front line at the front
you know at the front ranks of the army and so on so forth. inshallah, we'll talk about that part of it and the actual battle taking place as well. In the coming session. We'll go ahead and pause here we have to go in and stop in time for selected Asia inshallah. So we'll stop here and this is the first half of the Battle of boyhood, we'll talk about the actual battle itself. In the next session, may Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything that was said and heard some handle it will be handy.
