In these podcasts, we uncover one chapter after another, from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in an attempt to learn about him, to love him, and to better ourselves through his example, immersion, mentorship, companionship and tibia. These are just a few of the things we offer, alongside knowledge of the prophetic Biography at the Syrah intensive, two weeks dedicated to the study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his noble characteristics. So this winter, join me in Dallas, Texas, alongside your classmates from all over the world, to learn the story of the life of the best of humanity, the ultimate mercy to mankind, the prophet muhammad
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
he will handle our salatu salam ala rasulillah who Allah Allah he was actually
shot continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I see lots in Abuja, the prophetic biography. In the previous session, we kind of left off in the middle of the discussion about level hood. So as I mentioned previously, that everything that happened post bundled was basically pre hood. So everything that transpired was not only a reaction and impacted by the Battle of butter, but it was also what contributed and what led and built up to the bad level could. And so in the previous session, we talked about the profits, a lot of them finding about the army of Quraysh, marching towards Medina, the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam.
You know, seeking out counsel and advice from the Sahaba, or the unknown from the companions, may Allah be pleased with them. And finally, the profits, a lot of amassing about 1000 individuals, and heading outside of Medina, right outside of Medina to the Mount of offroad. And basically preparing to meet the army there. And at that particular point in time, Abdullah bin Sulu, who was the leader of the mafia coup, and he takes 300 of his allies and retreats back from they're kind of trying to leave, you know, he complains that oh, you know, Mohammed doesn't listen to me and so on and so forth. But really, at the end of the day, his whole point and objective was to try to delude the
prophets a lot. He summoned the Muslims that look, you have 1000 people, and then try to leave them high and dry, you know, minus a third of the army. But of course the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam wasn't bothered by that, as a prophets a lot of them had already told the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu mad bad that you know, we don't fight based on numbers, but we fight with the help of Allah subhana wa Tada.
So now at this particular point in time, they're set up there. We also talked about the fact that two of the tribes of the unsolved you know, kind of contemplated and thought about leaving when the mafia Boulet left as well, but then they you know, realized what a mistake that would be. And they stood firm and they went ahead and they stayed with the profits a lot of the time in the last panel which Allah spoke about. This in the Quran is hammertoe if autonomy, inhuman Tasha, la la la la, la, la la la, la me know that when two groups from amongst you thought about retreating and leaving, they almost became defeated, before even the battle started. But Allah subhanho wa Taala is their
friend and their ally. And only upon the last panel which Allah do the believers continue to put their trust and their reliance. And so then they stood firm. And so the 700 believers, were now there ready to go. There's a very interesting incident that occurs at this particular time.
As when they arrived there outside of Medina, there is an elderly man who lives out there, and he was blind at this particular point. And he had this for some strange reason. He had this very deep seated hatred for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So when he heard the prophets, a lot of human the Muslims arriving there, he reached down and he grabbed an item into Robin fee. And he picked up some dirt in his hand. And he said at that time, we're lucky though Alamo anila Cebu beehive Hadar, kiya Mohamed la barra up to be Howard Huck. And he started picking up dirt and throwing it in the direction of the sound that he could hear the Muslim army. And he was saying that
I swear to God, that if I knew that I could, you know, hit smack this dirt against your face, oh, Muhammad, then I would have done so, but I'm blind so I can't. So obviously somebody that's very offensive. He's being very belligerent and very disrespectful.
To Lou, so many of the people they the Sahaba became so upset and so perturbed that many of them started advancing towards him.
You know, kind of putting their hands on their swords. They started advancing towards them that let's take care of this guy. How dare he speak this way to the prophets a lot he said them.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said at that particular time, lots of Cthulhu, who do not kill him for how the army, army basa because the prophets, a lot of them said, this blind man is not only blind from his eyes, not only does he's lack vision of the eyes, but he lacks the vision of the heart. He doesn't know any better. He's blind from his heart, like a last kind of what Allah says in the Quran when Allah tala saw Well, I can tell, he has to do that real true blindness, that is actually problematic is not the blindness of the eyes. But it's the blindness of the heart that we that is within the chest. And so the reason, of course, is happening at the time of a hug. But
the reason why I wanted to mention this, and I think that we should take special note of this is because the few incidents in the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam like we talked about pre load, you had the incident of Gabby, Ashraf, the half Arab half Jewish poets and incites her of war, who basically single handedly, you know, created the fervor that led to the bad level hood, that the profits a lot of a sudden had him assassinated, he had him killed, because he was instigating an entire war in which hundreds of people would lose their lives, and so much death and destruction would occur. And this one man was hell bent on making this war happen. Now, what ends up happening
with an incident like this is this type of an incident is talked about, it's blogged about, were questioned about it nonstop, you know, where Muslims are taunted with it, they are constantly, you know, people try to back them into a corner with this type of an incident from the life of the prophets a lot of the time, even though it's completely justified, if you know the context of it. But these types of incidents, they don't get talked about. And of course, the people who don't like us and the people who dislike us, they're not going to bring up incidents like this, but we have to be able to quote these incidents from the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, you know, every
single time something tragic occurs somewhere in the world. Recently, we had the thing in France, where somebody, you know, depicts the profits a lot of the time in a very disrespectful manner, and tries to mock the profits and the lovely sentiment or cartoon or whatever it may be. And, you know, somebody reacts, you know,
somebody reacts irrationally, and goes and, you know, shoots up the whole neighborhood and tries to kill as many people even killing a Muslim security guard, and whatnot. So, you know, somebody behaves irrational like this. Well, what we, and at that time, a lot of times, there's a discourse and there's a dialogue within the Muslim community. So people who might be the very small minority, the very small vocal minority, that might be an advocate of such a course of action, they say, Well, what about God, given the lesson of all the rest of you Muslims, you're not educated about your history, then the profits, a lot of them take out cabul Ashraf, yes, he did, but he instigated a
war. He was instigating a war, but just simply the disrespect of the prophets, a lot of them, this old man is standing there cursing the prophets a lot. He's throwing dirt and rocks in the direction of the prophets, a lot of them saying I would smack you on your face if I could see you. And when the Sahaba are willing to go and you know, take care of him.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam actually says no, no, no, leave him leave him. He's ignorant. He doesn't know any better. Like, you know, this is the exact realization of those. That idea and the expression that we use about taking the high road, being the bigger man
you know, not stooping down to someone's level. This is from the life of the prophets a lot easier. So it's very important that we know our history, we know our receipt all we know our Deen so that we have a proper understanding of our religion. Otherwise, we, you know, it's the tragedy of our times. One of the greatest blessings of our times is also when the greatest tragedy of our times, and the blessing of our time is, you know, we have all this technology and communication and Network and Internet, right information gets across the world in a matter of seconds. Even less, you know, you can pretty much access any type of information. People always marvel at the fact you can pull up the
Quran in like 37 translations of the Quran in the blink of an eye. You know, you can search through Bahati and Muslim and Timothy and let's say a Buddha who didn't like you can look up a Hadith, right their entire text and fit into fsid and Hadith and everything online. But the problem is also the tragedy is that we sometimes become so dialed in and so connected, that the only source of our knowledge is basically whatever information is coming through to us that is on the surface. And what floats at the on the surface of the ocean, the phone does, the debris does. The Quran actually speaks about it, that the water is deep, and it's rich and it's beneficial and it's good, but on the
surface, you see all the debris and all the trash.
Right Corolla Ganga, Bella Bella haka well
So a lot of times the things that are just coming to us on the surface, the little six second clips, the tweets, the Facebook posts, whatever is running on whatever, you know, media or news channel or whatever, right entertainment, Hollywood, this is all the trash that's on the surface. And there's even good knowledge over there. But the problem is we have to go and we have to access this lecture itself. Right? It's not only streamed live for anybody that wants to tune in, but this is basically put out on a podcast. But then I have to check myself that am I actually going and reading a real book on the life of the prophets a lot easier to zero. Am I actually going and listening to a
podcast of a dose of a class that properly going through the sources talks about the life of the Prophet SNM? Or am I listening to the 32nd 62nd, two minute clip, that is the trash that's floating on the surface? Right, that is coming from people with their own agendas, whether they be from either end of the spectrum, the extremists that are trying to ruin Islam, from internally, or the extremists that are trying to destroy Muslims from externally, right, so we have to really think about these things. So this blind man cursing the prophets, a lot of them trying to physically assault the Prophet sallallahu sallam. When the Sahaba tried to attack him. He says, No, no, leave
him. He's ignorant. He's blind, meaning not blind. The bruxism didn't Mark him about being blind from his eyes. He says his heart is blind. His heart does not grasp and comprehend the truth.
Anyways, moving forward from there.
The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam When they reached to the point of offered, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, wa Jalla vara, who asked rahula the prophets a lot of these input demounted have offered to his back and to the back of the army, the prophets, a lot of them gave a few instructions. First and foremost, he said
that nobody should fight until and unless we give them the permission to fight.
Nobody should fight unless they are given the permission unless we give the permission to fights. So be very calm, be very relaxed. Yes, we are here to do a very difficult job. But this requires a lot of thought a lot of patience and a lot of stability.
We have to be stable here. We're in the battlefield is going to get heated. But that never justifies us becoming irrational or unstable. So that was something very important. The next thing the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam did was he took 50 archers
and he appointed as a leader on masala Roma to Medina Abdullah
Abdullah ibn Joo Bade radi Allahu taala and who the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was an unsavoury the prophets, a lot of them appointed him as a leader of 50 archers. And in fact, Abdullah even obeyed. He was wearing white clothes on that day. And so that was kind of like a marker the profits a lot. He also pointed out that look for the white shirt, and that tells you that the archers are in place. And he appointed these 50 archers and he basically placed them there on the mountain. And he said in the hill hayleigh omnibenevolent, like a tsunami delphina in Canada na Alena fastboot mechanic, la nuit la nuit I mean, kubalik these are the two party Muslim, the
prophets a lot of them said you stand here at the mountain and you guard us from behind you watch our backs to make sure that they don't send the cavalry around the back from behind us so that they come and they kind of sandwiches and catch us in between. So you stand here and you protect us you watch our backs for us. All right, and the prophets a lot of them told them very clearly we're going to be revisiting this issue. The prophets a lot of Salaam said that even if in Canada to Lana, if we start to win the battle, or Alena or we seem to be losing the battle Firth boots mechanic you stay where you are you don't move from your post. You might be like Oh, looks like they're you know, kind
of suffering some losses Let's get down there and reinforce them. No, no, no, you stay in your place. Oh, they're winning the battle is over. Everything's that no, you stay in your place, and the profits allottee some says so that we are not attacked from behind from that side. That's your job. Now after the profits, a lot of them had basically given these instructions. The next thing the Prophet of Allah allowed him to mentioned about him is that vara also lice allottee Sabina
Jani labasa, Dara, unfiltered in the prophets, a lot of them were two armors. He wore two layers of armor and protection. Now, the reason why that's relevant is that number one, the profits a lot. He said I'm expected the battle to be very, very difficult and very fierce, as indicated by the fact that profits, a lot of them reinforce his own personal protection. Right. The second thing that it also tells you is that the profits, obviously I had every intention to be in the thick of it. We already talked about the Battle of but that if you go back and listen to the podcast, in the Battle of brother, Alabama, Vitaly Brody, Allahu taala, who describes a prophet
A lot of these from running back and forth throughout the battlefield, to the frontline to the back, checking on everyone back and forth, back and forth. Oliver the Allahu taala. And who is a young man 20 something years old at this time, he says I could not keep up with him. I could not in the process, I was 50 something years old. And he says I'm 20 something years old and I couldn't keep up with him. Right. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had every intention to be in the thick of it. And the third thing, so that's leadership leading by example, leading personally. And the third thing that this also tells us is that it shows us that it is a part of the Sunnah of the Prophet
sallallahu Sallam to take whatever precautions needs to be taken and are reasonable.
Within reason, it is very important to take precautions right that it is not from tawakkol it is not some type of religious concept or spiritual idea that you throw caution to the wind and basically, you know, let go of any type of precautionary measures No, no, but taking precautionary measures from the sun. And then you have courage and then you have willingness and then you do what needs to be done. But you do practice a very high level of precaution. That is from the sun of the profits a lot easier. Now.
The next thing that is narrated about the Battle of boyhood is that a group of young men will call them like teens, teenagers, younger teenagers, a group of young men.
They came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to participate in the Battle of orchid and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he turned them back. One of them of course, famously was Abdullah Ibn Umar, radi Allahu taala and who, who says in the Hadith Bukhari and Muslim cut only to Allah visa Larissa Yama hunt for them, you just need that I was presented before the prophets a lot easier to partake in about the budget, but he didn't end up on the hood Excuse me, but he did not give me permission will lead to Allah He will hunt duck, while Anna IGNOU Hamza Asha jahsonic. But then I was presented to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the Battle of conduct the Battle
of the trench and he gave me permission. Look at Alec and some of the others whom the profits are largely some turned back, because he felt that they were too young, because of their tender age were Oussama to blues aid zeytinburnu sabots by Robin azim who saved in the head, arabinose, even hazy,
and others. So all of them were basically turned back because they were too young. But you know what one thing that's very remarkable. And again, this there's a profound lesson here. One thing that's very remarkable about this list, if you go through it again, Abdullah even Norma Kusama, even Zaid, zaidan, new sabot, barraba. As of right, when you go through this list, what you realize is that these eventually would become some of the most knowledgeable of the companions of the prophets along the center. And they would take participate in battles later. But they all became amongst the most knowledgeable of the Sahaba rhodiola. And
so what this tells you is that, that they, you know that there was a system in place there was generally speaking, in terms of a society and a community, that there was a culture in place that even if you couldn't do one thing, that there was still something else for you to do, that you weren't rendered useless. There were many different things that needed to be done. So if they couldn't participate in the battle, then they could be learning the firearm, they could be learning the Ahadi, they could be learning their religion. And these would become the teachers of the next generation. And that also tells you about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that he encouraged them that
okay, you might be young right now where you can participate in the battle. But what you can be doing is learning your deen in your religion. And this also tells you about these young men that didn't use this as an excuse. Well, I wanted to go into battle and you didn't let me so then that's that. And I'm not gonna do anything else. No, you know, I'm not gonna learn Quran, I want to go to the battle, right? That type of entitlement and spoiled attitude that a lot of times we end up having, right? So that wasn't present there in that in there in the culture of the Sahaba de la guano. If you can't go to the battle, you can sit down and memorize the Quran.
But there is also a need. And of course, you know, Toby talks about it, or my kind of alien fellow Kapha fellow Lana forum in Kuala Lumpur, Eva, me
that even if a time in a situation came like you did that to book where every single person has to go out into the battle, and everyone has to participate. A group should still stay behind to continue to learn the deen so that when they come back to them either rajala him
so that there is someone to teach them when they do come back from the battle. And there's somebody to continue the message and the dean on forward, the Dow and the education can continue.
The next thing that's also mentioned is that it also shows the eagerness of the Sahaba the Allahu taala. I know, you know, youth is a very beautiful thing, a very remarkable thing. And you know, dare I say even a really miraculous thing where young people are able to do and accomplish is oftentimes very astounding, the energy, the energy,
New at the creativity of young people is remarkable. Right? And that hasn't changed. That hasn't changed. Young people are just as energetic and just as enthusiastic and just as creative, right? today as they were back in that day.
But the difference is a lot of times, you know, at a particular place in time is what do you apply it to? They applied it to the dean.
They applied it to the Dean of Allah subhanaw taala. What do we apply it to? So it's actually mentioned about someone I've been joondalup and Rafi I've been hardage some Robin jundo and Rafi I've been Hadid radi Allahu taala and Houma. These were also two young Sahaba, who initially the prophets a lot of a sudden had turned them back. He said, No, you're too young to participate. So somebody told the prophets a lot better off here is an expert Archer, like his archery skills are remarkable. He's a better Archer than most of the men.
And he demonstrated for the profits a lot he some of the profits a lot. He was so impressed with him that he said, Okay, fine. jazza who said you can come? And so then at that time, some raw been jundo Brody Allahu taala, who tells the prophets a lot, he said, Well, if you're gonna let raffia go, Well, guess what, I'm a much more skilled fighter than raffia is. And they actually to demonstrate his skill as a fighter. He wrestled raffia out of the Allahu taala and who and then beat him, he pinned him. And so the prophets a lot of them said, well, you have a point. And so then someone in gender was allowed to come as well for adjuster who. So you see also the eagerness and the
enthusiastic of the young men. Now,
the next thing that happens at this particular time, is that right before the battle starts, the prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he takes, so he takes out a sword, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, maniac who has had a safe be happy.
Man yahood has a safe be happy, who will take the sword for me and then fulfill the rights of disord here today.
So the narrations they say that many people stood up and approached the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam some of the narrations even say that some individuals Sahaba asked the prophets a lot he said them for the sword like armor of the Allahu taala and who and others said Give it to me on messenger of Allah gave it to me and the prophets a lot of them didn't give it to anyone. He didn't hand it to anyone. And somebody asked the profit or loss a lot he said that what is the rights of this sword
Mahaprabhu Yasser Allah, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said on wb He further ado we have Diane hannya that you go in you fight with the sword so fiercely till you bend the sword.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you know and at that time when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that you have to fulfill the rights of this sword
many people they kind of backed off because they understood that this is a huge responsibility. This is sort of the profits a lot of the some of the expectations that come with it. So at that time, abou Jana radi Allahu taala on whose name was Samak Abu Jana radi Allahu taala and who he stood up and he said to be hakea Rasul Allah, I will take the sword and I will fulfill the rights of the sordo messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam. And so that that time the prophets a lot he said him, gave him the sword.
abou Jana radi Allahu taala. Even this harp writes about him that who was his man, that he was from amongst the unsought. He was from the from amongst young Tsar, and he actually was a very known fighter and warrior
that he was basically considered a source of pride to whichever side that he belonged on.
specifically, it's actually mentioned about him that one of the things that he would do, is that when you would go out to battle is that he had like a red bandana. He had a red bandana, and when you would go out into battle he would tie the red bandana on his head. He would tie it around his head, and whenever he would do this, people knew that this was a sign of the fact that a blue Jana is going to fight. Some of the narrations mentioned that when the unsought when they saw a boo Jana take the sword and then he took out his red bandana and he
tied it on his head. Then ansara basically said that he had the he also bottle kitaen that this is the bandana of death. Right? So they said that abou Jana is about to go and fight. And Abu Jana, his style basically was that when he would go into the battlefield, he would, you know, kind of he would just tear through the lines and he would just read
havoc on the army. And so the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he saw a boo boo Gianna, racing back and forth into the battlefield and the way he was walking and he had a certain kind of struck a certain type of confidence that he had to him when he walked, almost kind of, you know, not to accuse him of this but almost kind of bordering on like arrogance, is very boastful in his walk, the prophet of alas allottee Some even commented when he saw him walking, he said in the Misha turn you believe you will need to holla who Illa famously had an open that this is a type of walk that normally Allah subhanaw taala does not like allies displeased with this type of walk
except in the battlefield. It is acceptable in the battlefield, because that is the time to basically exert one's will over the will of the enemy.
And so Abu Jana basically, you know, he started going back and forth in the battlefield and the narrations you can talk about the fact that he tore through that when the evenness Hawk says that when
when the battle became very intense and very heated patola Budaj Anahata mana fineness, he fought until he tore through the enemy side and started to push people back from there single handedly.
Zubaydah vanilla ROM radi Allahu taala and who the relative of the prophets, a lot of them and also one of the Quraysh he says that even a sham relates this, that widget to Finn FC heinous altura Li Salama safe from Anna Lee Taku Jana, I felt kind of bad because I had asked the prophets a lot of them for the sword and he didn't give it to me and he gave it to Abu Jana. So I felt bad. So and I started thinking to myself, and it was Sophia Amati woman polish. I am the cousin of the profits. A lot of my mother is the aunt of the process of Sofia, radi Allahu taala and her and I went to him and I asked him but he didn't give it to me. He gave it taboo Jana and left me without our country.
He didn't give it to me. We're lucky to underrun in America law. I'm gonna see what a Buddha actually does with this. So he said I was kind of following him. I was following him around the battlefield and when he took out his red bandana and he tied his to his head the unsought said, US Raja Abu Jana Saba tell mode, then our booty Jana has put on the handkerchief like the bandana of death.
And he was saying who was saying in the battlefield and Olivia had any Holly when a lady and Haley Allah Akuma Dara philcare Julie, abrupt, besafe Allah He was truly that he was saying that I have made a promise to my friend, my best friend Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we live amongst the date palms with the messenger we are blessed to live amongst the date bongs with the messenger and I have made an oath I have taken an oath that I will not stand at the back of the army, that I won't hide behind the back row of the army, but rather I will go forward and I will fight with the sword of God in His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And another narration also mentions about Abu Dujana that
there was a man amongst the machine akun very fierce warrior, and he was going through just tearing Muslims down, just tearing Muslims down with his sword single handedly. So abou Jalla spotted him and started to move towards him.
And the Sahabi who narrates this, he says for the Atilla ismar being a human. I started making the art that I wanted to see these two people fight
to see what happens
when they met Finally,
the first one to strike was the machine. The Man from Croatia. He tried to hit up with the Jana and Abu Jana deflected his strike with his shield. And then I will do Jana basically struggling with the sword and in a single shot. He killed him.
In an in another narration, it also mentions that cabin Malik cabin Malik, radi Allahu taala. And who also says that countryman Judy homina muslimin. I was amongst the people who was injured on the day of uproot. So, again, I he similarly relates to a similar story. He says that I saw a man a fierce warrior on the side of the flesh, fighting so fiercely, he was wearing this big, huge armor, and he was just tearing through Muslims disposing of one after another after another.
And he was screaming while he was tearing down Muslims. He was screaming that come at me so that I can get you like animals are gutted
Right, it's those who come I stole socket joselu and Elena, let me get you like people get animals you know, after you sacrifice an animal and you split the animal open and take the internal organs out, cleaning up the the animal. So he said, Let me get you like people get their their their kill when they go hunt like an animal.
So he was doing this. And you know, some of the people have them and then as he says that I saw a man from amongst the Muslims
stand up and start to stare at him
just wreaking havoc on the Muslim side of the army. So and he started moving towards him and he was also wearing an armor, this Muslim man was also wearing an armor and he started moving towards him. So he says from my blade, too, I was injured so I was on the ground. But then I moved his attack on to me and he so I moved over to the side a little bit so that I could see them. Come to up doodle muslimah will caffeine, be bursary, and then I stood up even though I was injured, I stood up so that I could see what would happen. Right and when the me says that the the the mushnik was actually of the Luma
attend, the music was actually larger than the Muslim look more physically stronger and imposing minimalism and was more better armed and equipped in the Muslim was who went to go fight this machine.
And he says that I kept staring at both of them until they finally met.
And the Muslim walked up to the mushnik. And this part is kind of, you know, graphic but I mean, it's battle. He says that he basically put his sword into the shoulder of the machine
and took his sword all the way down till he like cut him into what the father of a physical chain.
And then the Muslim after he disposed of this guy who was just wreaking havoc on the army, he uncovered his face.
And he looked back at me from a casual Muslim on when he was a Fatah. Jakub, and I will do Jana. So he said, he turned around, and he saw me staring at the whole time and I was just mesmerized. And he said, What do you think of that? Yeah, God, my name is Abu Gianna, by the way.
It's kind of like a, you know, you sign something for somebody like here, keep the ball, let me sign this for you keep it right. So if this was kind of the courage and the bravery of Abu john on that particular day, and it also goes to, you know, on a more serious note, again, this is talking about battles, and this oftentimes becomes a controversial, you know, people perceive it to be a controversial topic or whatever is a part of history is a part a part of the history of any nation or any community that was oppressed, that had to fight to survive, and fight to seek out their rights and in their their, their respect, their autonomy, and you know, and their dignity. And so
this shows you that the prophets a lot of them gave obudu Jana sword because the prophets, a lot of them understood people's talents, and he was aware of what people were capable of. And he was able to see deeper into people and recognize people of what people could achieve and what their potential was.
Now, there's a similar, another story about another individual. That also is mentioned that another man came to the Prophet sallahu wa he was fighting any fossa, Allah Husseini, he began as a person please give me a sword that I can fight with. And the prophets Allah assembla Allah in our day to go to person philcare you if I give you the sword Are you going to go to the back of the army and hide out then Oh, I got the process of sword good souvenir let me go hide out till this is all over. Is that what you're going to do? And he said law safe and he said no, I promise I want them to process him gave him a sword. for July your tattoos were pulled and he went on to the battlefield fighting
and he was saying and Olivia hadn't Khalili, Allah Akuma de la fille de that he was saying that I have made a promise to my best friend Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he will not go and hide in the back of the army.
But before I conclude here today when we talk about the story of Abu Jana and again if somebody kind of heard this on the surface, they would hear this and they would kind of say like look, you know, this is what you people idolize and you know this warrior with this red bandana on and red or red face mask on and just you know cutting people up and bragging about it and all this kind of stuff. It's something very fascinating occurred with a blue Jana. Remember the story that I told you I purposely skipped over this because I wanted to talk about this as a conclusion. The story I told you about was where the machine who was basically going through just tearing Muslims down and kind
of you know calling people on and abou Jana went up to him and basically you know in the man struck him and Abu Jana deflected it with the shield and then he killed the guy.
abou Jana says
abou Jana says that he relates to the same story himself, even as Hawk relates this and he says that
Or in the first one the Sahabi who's narrating it also makes mention of this and it will do Jana personally also relates this. So the Sahabi says
tomorrow after Abu Jana killed that guy through a tool called hammer safe, Allah Masaki Rossi Hindi bentota. Suma de la sayfa.
That then I saw a booty Jana turned
and he had his sword right above the head of Hindi bent Atiba.
This is the daughter of Raja who was killed that brother, and she is the wife of Abu sufian. And she was actually one of the leaders of the mushnik army that came to kill the Muslims in Britain, Medina to the ground. And in fact, it's mentioned about her as well, that she was actually out there in the battlefield in the front of even the battlefield, inciting the mushrik army, the Moroccan army to kill Muslims. She was saying that in took the lunar army when a three shoe nomadic out to the middle Nevada firaga Haley woman, she was saying that if you go and you fight, then we will embrace you. And we will greet you. And we will basically you know, you know, serve you and and honor you. And
she said but if you run away from the army like a cow, if you run away from the battle like a coward, you turn your backs in your runs, then we will leave you we will leave you without even thinking about it. We'll leave you faster than the arrow leaves the boat, lady.
All right. So she was out there inciting and instigating. She's every much as part of the battle as that warrior was that Abu Dujana just took down.
So the man says I saw will do Jana he had a sword right above his head, the woman's head, and then he turned a sword away from her. I will do Jana himself says that are insane. And you mentioned NASA Hampshire. He says himself that I saw a human being kind of maybe covered up all right,
who was inciting people on and was kind of like leading the charge
Hamsun shalida for some Mattila who so I went in the direction of that person
to basically take care of this person for the mahamantra he saved Wallah.
When I picked my sort of upon that person to take that person down, that person kind of quivered or kind of whimpered wala made like a whimpering type of like scared sound. For either in Milan, who was a woman I looked closer, it was covered up, you know, with an armor or a helmet or whatever. And I looked closer, there was a woman
for a crumb to safer Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Abu Dhabi in Raja
so I thought that I should honor the sword of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by not striking a woman with that sword, meaning to in Arabic and as a literal translation comes out kind of awkwardly. He said that I realized at that time that striking a woman
even in the battlefield, even if she's got armor on, even if she's in the battlefield, and she's leading the charge and inside, you know, encouraging and pushing the soldiers who are leading the charge, even then, to strike a woman would have been dishonouring and disrespecting the sword of the prophets alongside them is not my sword. This was the messenger sword and I would have disrespected the sword of the prophets a lot of them had I struck a woman with the sword
now you got to understand something right?
He's not making this up from himself.
Where did this idea come to in the Prophet somebody someone saying I want you to fight with this sword till you bend it.
I want you to fight with this sword until you bend it till it's worn out.
I want you to not go and hide in the back of the army. I need you to be out there today. protect our people.
But then where's he getting this idea that I can strike a woman if I strike a woman this would be disrespectful to my religion. This would be disrespectful to my messenger. This would be disrespectful to the sword that the messenger put my hand.
This idea is of course coming from the fact that the prophets Allah told them
and there are numerous Hadith authentic narrations that the Prophet sallallahu forbade them from striking down women and children.
So there were ethics.
And there was discipline. Remember that discipline I spoke about? I spoke about that the battle will get heated it'll get very intense.
Your world will feel like it's spinning.
But you never lose control.
You never lose your dignity. You never lose your stability. You never lose your sanity and your decency. We are people of ethics that people have morality and even when situations become tough
And we have to make very difficult decisions and do very difficult things. We are still a people have a code.
We have a code that we operate by. And it's a moral, ethical, divine prophetic code. And so that's what the prophet of Allah license taught them. And you see this warrior,
right, the red bandana, the red face mask, whatever,
tearing through people tearing through the army single handedly taking down their biggest, and their meanest, nastiest,
But still such discipline was instilled in him and look who, in whose hand the profits allow these inputs, the sword, because he knows that he's going to not represent to me.
And that, again, shows you that the profits, a lot of them invested into people.
And he taught people and trained people and mentored people, and then put them out to do the tasks that needed to be done.
Because then he could trust that they wouldn't, you know, misrepresent him,
and that they would always come conduct themselves by that by those ethics and morality that was taught to them.
So inshallah we'll go ahead and pause here. In the next session, we'll continue in the Battle of ahead and talk about some of the key incidents and individuals in the Battle of the hood like Hamza, the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Hamza radi Allahu taala, and who will talk about masabi, Nomura the Allahu taala and who and others as well. And we'll also talk about the injuries of the profits a lot he said, um, and kind of what happened and how the battle turned and other things inshallah, so we'll cover in all of that in the next session being the lucky to Allah, Allah Subhana Allah who will be handy so 100 columbium de la Ilaha. illa Anta sakana today
