Chawla continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a sirata number we have the prophetic biography.

00:01:12--> 00:01:28

We've been discussing and talking about the events of the fourth year of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his residents in the city of Medina, the fourth year of higit up now, we've talked about a few of the incidents that occurred here in the very beginning of the fourth year.

00:01:29--> 00:01:42

Today, inshallah, what we're going to be talking about is a little bit more towards the middle of the fourth year of higit. on so many of the historians and scholars of the Sierra citizeness harp,

00:01:44--> 00:01:54

even a sham Waukee de casita and others mentioned the fact that after the incident of banana lead, which we talked about previously, sort of the hash of

00:01:55--> 00:02:18

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam remained in the city of Medina, for the month of Ramadan well in Ruby or Thani, so the incident of banana lead occurred in the beginning of the month of robbery, oh, well, so the profits a lot of the some remained in the city of Medina for the next two months, and part of the month of jumada Lula.

00:02:19--> 00:03:01

In that particular month of jumada, Lula the Prophet, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had received information. So the profits, a lot of them, obviously, because there had been quite a bit of turmoil up to this particular point. You know, it's very important that whenever we discuss and talk about the seed on we're talking about these specific incidents, particularly during the period of Medina, it's very important to kind of maintain context, and what has happened, what has transpired, and what is continuing to happen and go on. Because in that lies, the understanding and the context of exactly the decisions that are being made by the prophets a lot of a sudden, so the Battle of better

00:03:01--> 00:03:42

has happened, the Battle of boyhood has happened, there's been a few other incidents as well. So what happened at this, you know, we talked about the very tragic massacre of the Muslims as well a group of Muslims in the beginning of this fourth year of his era. So what happened at this particular point in time was the prophets a lot. He said, I'm had scouts, who are keeping an eye on the area around the city of Medina. And that was a necessity at that time. It's much like a security system, so that you know if anyone's approaching or encroaching upon your city in your homes, and so the scouts came back to the prophets a lot. He said them with the information with the news, that

00:03:42--> 00:04:02

there are some veteran tribes to the north in the area of nudged and they have begun to they have started gathering and amassing an army and they are trying to unify some of the veteran tribes in an effort to build an army and wage war against the profits allottee segment the city of Medina,

00:04:03--> 00:04:42

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam realized that this is something that could become very problematic, this could be very tragic, if it is ignored for too long. So at that particular point in time the prophets a lot of them gathered together a group of the Sahaba brought the loved one home. And the prophets a lot of these are appointed seminarians, even as Hawk says that he appointed a Buddha, the father of the Allahu taala on who in charge of the city of Medina in his absence, even his Sham says rather it was orthopod will often in either case, the profits a lot he said I'm put together a group of the Muslims and the prophets a lot. He said I'm set out from the city of Medina

00:04:42--> 00:05:00

marching in the direction of nudge the North until they arrived at a particular point. This campaign in this incident which I will talk about the details of is called the hustla, which means the campaign of that tournament

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

That'll be a bar. Now that basically means the one that had or the one who possesses the one that is characterized by something are in the Arabic language means patches, like patches of cloth.

00:05:17--> 00:05:59

And so what does that exactly refer to? And why was this particular campaign or battle this expedition called dottore? are so different historians and different scholars have provided a few different reasons. Number one is even his Shang Rahim Allah to Allah, a scholar of the CETA he says the Anambra rofi ha, rah, rah, rah Yachty him that they had certain flags, you know, when they when the army would march, they would have banners as a means of organizing the army. So some of the banners and the flags that they had, as they marched, were stitched together from strips or pieces of clothing. So the flags in the banners were patched together, and that's why it was called out to

00:05:59--> 00:06:14

the car. Similarly, some of the historians have mentioned the shutter often who NACA is Mohatta to the car, that there was a huge tree at the particular spot where they marched to, that was called to the bar, however,

00:06:15--> 00:06:58

also alacrity another of the early scholars of the Sierra, he says Be jevelin fee he booked our own homegrown was soon we'll be doing that there was a particular mountain there that had different almost like different colors to it. There was a mountain that had different colors or shades to it. Part of the mountain used to look red, when you looked at it from a distance part of it would seem very dark and black. Part of it used to seem very light, almost white. So there was a mountain that had that would reflect different shades. And because of that, some of them called the to the heart. However, in the narration of Abu Musab Ashanti, radi Allahu taala, and who narrated by Imam Bahati

00:06:58--> 00:07:41

and Imam Sahib in there. So, Mr. Muslim in there, sorry. So a narration of Abu Salah shadow, the laquan, who that is found in the psyche, of human body and Mr. Muslim, a very authentic narration. He says, In the massumi had to be radica Lima can be tuna Allah or Julie him in a therapy mean, she doesn't have that rather, this campaign was called that to the car, because the journey was so long. And the Muslims again, because of their very humble means very meager supplies that they had, they didn't have a lot of animals for everyone to be able to write on. And the journey was very, very long. And it was a very hot,

00:07:42--> 00:08:23

you know, very difficult time of the year for traveling. That over time, as they were traveling, their shoes began to wear out, and their feet started to blister and bleed. And many of the Sahaba their feet were getting very severely injured. And so eventually to remedy and at the same time, these are people's feet, like what are you going to do you, you know, they can't continue, just proceed on forward, you can just leave people behind either it was a large number of the army that was suffering from this ailment. So what they ended up doing was they ended up taking their a lot of their clothes, and they're shawls and blankets and things like that. And they began to rip strips of

00:08:23--> 00:08:52

cloth from it. And they began to bandage their feet. And so the the the look of the army, the visual of the army was that there were all these Muslims, the Sahaba, who are marching and their feet were wrapped up in cloth were bandaged up and thereby this campaign this incident became known as Kuzma to the to the car, the campaign of bandages. So it was a very, very difficult and arduous journey.

00:08:53--> 00:09:45

So they marched to the north, and they intended to go there and you know, face off and meet the tribes of bunu, mohareb and busaba from the families rather or you can say the the the, the group's of Birmingham, Alabama, North Alabama, who all belong to the clan, to the tribe of Hutt fan. So that was the objective. So they marched to the north under a lot of duress and through great difficulty. They finally arrived at the place of hot fun, where they met, they were met with the army. And this is the other thing that is very fascinating here is a lot of times that I constantly allude to this I constantly mentioned this.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

And but it is very important to reiterate and it's very important to kind of remind ourselves and to remind others as well about this particular context, that while on one side there is a very unfortunate

00:10:00--> 00:10:37

You know, criticism or slander and misrepresentation of the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that these this is the prophet SAW some of these Muslims, these early Muslims, were just marching around just picking fights with everyone that there was information, there was intelligence that informed the prophets, a lot of them that they are gathering an army. And when the profits allottee, some arrives at the place of concern, what does he find he finds an entire army entire training military camp that is established. So meaning this was the reality, this was what was actually going on. So when they arrived there, they're met with this huge this huge army that they're amassing. So

00:10:37--> 00:10:59

the Muslims basically approached them and camped out very near to them for the caravan. So they both camped out from across from each other when we are combined. However, there was not any fighting that occurred, the battle did not ensue. What could happen. So both sides decided that it was best if there was not any actual military engagement.

00:11:00--> 00:11:43

But at the same time, this was a very strategic move by the prophets a lot of the time because it did send a message to the people of God fun, that the Muslims in Medina, number one are not absent minded, that they are not negligent, they're not just unaware of what's going on around them. And number two, that they will not take this lying down. The Muslims of Medina will not take this lying down. But rather they will, they are aware of what's going on outside their city. And they will take the necessary measures in order to protect and defend themselves in their homes, in their, their their families in their lives. And so there wasn't any fighting. But at this particular point.

00:11:43--> 00:12:23

However, at this time, now, there's a little bit of a discussion. Some of the scholars differ in regards to this, that did this happen at this particular time, or did it happen two years later. But many of the scholars of this era are of the opinion that at this particular time, the what that what is called selected hoath, what is called so often hope, which is the prayer that is offered in a very potentially dangerous situation, for instance, the prayer that is offered within the battlefield, that this is one of the first moments when this occurred. But again, as I said that there's a little bit of difference of opinion about it. And some of the scholars are of the opinion

00:12:23--> 00:12:37

that this happened actually in the sixth year of the of higit, ah, two years later. So inshallah we'll talk about it when we get to that particular time in the incident that has a Bernoulli here, so we'll be talking about it more so over there.

00:12:40--> 00:13:19

And that was after the Battle of the trench. And one of the things that even cathedra from a Lakota, Allah and others also present present is that it's very well documented, it's a fact that at the Battle of the trench due to again, the situation of the battle, one of the prayers had to be delayed, and the Sahaba and the prophets are some were not able to pray the the Salah in its proper time, but they had to delay it because they were in the battlefield, they were in the middle of battle. And had there already been the Sultan hope, they would have a very easy way to remedy that situation, be able to pray within the battlefield. But inshallah, as I mentioned that, you know,

00:13:19--> 00:13:39

we'll be talking about that later on. As far as the numbers that participated in the incidents in this campaign of up to the car, then the numbers differ a lot at he says that there were 400 companions, 400 Sahaba, with the prophets a lot, he said, and some go as far as mentioning that there were 700

00:13:41--> 00:14:28

individuals that were with the profits, a lot of them so there were 700 Muslims with the profits, a lot of them in this particular incidence of that today. So they stayed there for some time they camped out from some for some time, the army of had fun, basically retreated. And at that particular time, the Muslims packed up their stuff and head back to the city of Medina. And so it was what what we would call from at least the perspective of battle and engagement, it was largely uneventful. However, there were a few very interesting incidents that occurred on the journey itself going and coming back. So there were incidents that occurred around this particular face off from the people

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

of God fund.

00:14:29--> 00:14:59

One of the very, very notable incidents that occurred at this particular time was the story in the incident of an individual by the name of our evening Hadith. Hola, yBnL hadith of Allah, even Hadith belong to a balloon Hadith. The people have had found that the Prophet Solomon was facing off against that the Muslims were facing off against, he belonged to this particular group of people he belonged to that tribe. So it's mentioned about him that he

00:15:00--> 00:15:12

went to some of his people. They're the leaders and he said a lot up to Lula Mohammedan. So what are we doing here having this long drawn out face off against Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his followers?

00:15:14--> 00:15:30

Do you? Would you like for me to just take care of this situation? Would you like for me to just solve this problem? And they said, of course, gave a talk to Lou, how are you going to go about and killing him, he's here with an army, he's surrounded by his companions. And so he says,

00:15:31--> 00:15:35

Africa will be he that I will play some type of a trick with him.

00:15:36--> 00:16:18

So they said, okay, for up to Bella Illallah, she likes a lot his mo jellison. So he came into the Muslim camp, very unassuming, unarmed, and the prophets, a lot of the sentiment This is also very notable, and this is something that we should know for a fact. And we should, you know, be willing to share the profits a lot of the same at the same time, his default, by default, his demeanor, and his standard operating code and procedure was that of non intimidation, that even though they are there for a potential battle, and two armies are camped out across from one another in a standoff in a showdown, the profits a lot of these items still maintain this very casual, very open attitude and

00:16:18--> 00:16:52

demeanor, knowing that he was under the protection from Thailand at the same time, the primary objective being calling people to Allah, and saving souls from the fire of hell, that the Profit System was very open in that regard. So once in this individual comes in, and he's very, he's not aggressive. He's not armed. He's very unassuming. Then he was allowed to come in, in the process of someone sitting there. And of course, because at the end of the day, they were there for battle, everyone had to keep their weapons close. Because at any moment, if somebody started launching arrows, or somebody launched an offensive, you'd just, you'd be called, you'd hear people shouting

00:16:52--> 00:17:00

and you got to get up and you got to go. So everybody was basically keeping their weapons in their armor nearby. So the profits a lot he was sitting there and he had a sword in his lap.

00:17:01--> 00:17:23

So this man comes and he sits down by the profits, he loves him and he says, Yeah, Muhammad, Allah Safina classifica. Do you mind if I look at your sword? Like I I'd like to admire your sword. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Sure, go ahead. For our father who first Allahu Allah boo, boo, boo.

00:17:24--> 00:17:32

And so at that time, he took the sort of the profits a lot he so many unsheath the sword he drew the sword out.

00:17:33--> 00:17:38

And he started to wave the sword. Forget beatable, very happy to who?

00:17:40--> 00:17:51

And Thelma Carla? Yeah, Muhammad Amata Hakone. And he started to wave the sword at the profits a lot. He said, Oh, and he said, Oh Hamad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Aren't you afraid of me?

00:17:53--> 00:18:00

pointed the sword at the processor. Aren't you afraid of me? And the prophets a lot of them said LA. Ma from Inca? He said no. He

00:18:01--> 00:18:14

said no. And then he said, Why would I be afraid of you? What should I fear from you? He said Amata harpooning Wi Fi is safe. You're not afraid of me. I'm holding a sword.

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

I'm pointing a sword at you.

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

balilla you m nalani a lot Minka said no

00:18:24--> 00:18:31

promises and said no when he said that God will protect me from you alone will prevent you from harming me.

00:18:32--> 00:19:20

Through Miami de la salle de la region for LA and then when the narration says that then he took the sort of the profits and loves him and he returned it to him and that this is when Allah subhanaw taala revealed the ayah of the Quran even cathedra mentions this as a sub Babu yeah you're Latina Amano una mucha Lucha de con in Hama como la con for cafe cafe at worship Allah Allah Allah Allah infinito kalamoon from Sultan ma EDA is number 11 that Allah said oh you believe recall the blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon you when people wanted to put their hands on you, people extended their hands out to harm you. But Allah subhana wa tada prevented their hands from you. Allah block

00:19:20--> 00:19:33

their hands from touching you. So continue to live a life of God consciousness be conscious of Allah and only upon Allah do the believers place their trust. And not only that, but

00:19:35--> 00:19:40

another narration which is mentioned

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

that after this the narration in Sahih Muslim and also in sahadi that this individual holder, that new Hadith, he at that particular time that it says that the sword actually fell off from his hand wondering

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

means it says that the sword fell out from his hand and the profits of some sword. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him Do you believe in Allah? Allah, Allah, Allah Allah. He said law? He said no, when I can, well I can. Luca, Allah, Allah. Allah Allah hace la wa akuna mahatama lunak He says, No, I don't believe, but I will promise you one thing that I will never fight against you. Nor will I ever be with those people who wage war against you for kindness Avila who saw the profits a lot. He said, um, you know, let him go. He said, Alright, fine, go Go back to your ways

00:20:39--> 00:20:58

to ask haba who so he goes back. Remember, he's the one who kind of created this entire situation. He's the one who had gone boasting to his people. He's like, Hey, you want me to take care of Muhammad Salafi son. So he goes back to his people, and he tells him to come in, in the hiddenness, I returned back to you having met the most remarkable human being I've ever met.

00:20:59--> 00:21:41

And not only that, but then he told them about the prayer and the conduct and the character of the prophets a lot. He said, I'm in the Sahaba, and everything that he saw over there. So this was a very fascinating incident of hope, with 100 Hadith that occurred at the during this campaign of the to the heart. There's another very interesting, very remarkable incident that also occurred at this particular time. There's two more kind of, if you will, side incidents that are kind of mentioned about this particular campaign. Another very fascinating incident that really tells you about the spirituality that the Sahaba had, and the spirituality, the prophets, a lot of Islam had instilled

00:21:41--> 00:22:00

within them, and the dedication to their relationship with the last panel with Allah and their worship, that the prophets also had trained them in regards to. This is mentioned by urbanists, Hawk, and other and other scholars, like watch TV and others as well. And your mama Buddha Buddha also mentioned this in his sunon

00:22:01--> 00:22:03

that there was,

00:22:04--> 00:22:24

there was some, you know, type of interaction between the Muslims, while they were camped out there that today, there was a little bit of some interaction there between a few individuals, you know, there wasn't any war or anything like that, but just like a few different, you know, kind of incidents or run ins between some of the Muslims and some of them were shikun,

00:22:25--> 00:22:51

one of the most shikun, he got very, very upset due to his running with one of the Muslims. And so he came to the prophet or rather when, you know, he came and basically started to screen and started to pronounce, you know, near the Muslim camp in the Muslim army. halifa, Allah yenta here, had a coffee as hobby, Mohammed Salah him a demon.

00:22:52--> 00:23:32

He said, that's it. I've been humiliated. I've been insulted. I've been offended. And I will not stop until I have shed blood of some of the people of Mohammed ceylonese. Anna, like you took an oath, I'm going to murder somebody, I'm going to kill somebody. So the prophets a lot of the time at that time, and then it talks about it, how he started to basically circle around, he started to stop, he started to, you know, almost stake out the Muslim camp, that when the armies would retreat to their camps, he would refuse to go and he would just stand right there. He would always sit right there Wait, right, they're looking for some type of an opportunity waiting for one Sahabi to maybe

00:23:32--> 00:24:17

kind of stray away from the camp for some need or something. And then you would try to pounce them and attack them. And so he was dead set on murdering as a hobby. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam announced he said man module and yet Laguna, Laila Tana, who will keep guard of the camp tonight, we basically need some guards and we need some scouts to stay on the perimeter of the camp. And really keep a lookout, make sure this guy doesn't basically try to come in the middle of the night and try to kill somebody. So one man from the Mahajan alone and one man from the unsolved they both volunteered. They said not new here Rasul Allah, the Prophet sansum said okay, for qunar be

00:24:17--> 00:25:00

Fermi shabby mean awadhi. So the prophets, a lot of them said, Okay, what I want you to do is I want you to go to go outside of the camp, position yourself strategically there at the mouth of the of the valley. And there I want you to set up you know, sit up there on the perch so that you can keep a lookout and see anyone even in the middle of the night trying to sneak in or approach the Muslim camp. So that they said okay, and the two individuals even as hoch mentioned where I might have been the acid, but the Allahu taala Anima from the Mahal from the Maha Joon and the other words are bad Ben Bishop, radi Allahu anhu from the outside. So they both went out and they set up set themselves

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

Where the profits are from and instructed them.

00:25:03--> 00:25:13

So, the Ansari says to the Mahajan, Abad says to Amar, a lady to hibou. And at fieger, who, a while ago,

00:25:14--> 00:25:56

he said, What term would you like to take? Would you like to go first? Or would you like for me to go last? So, I might have been the acid or the Allahu taala. And who says, You know, I prefer if you went first, it funny or whatever, you know, because I'm not being acid or the Allahu taala. And who was very much in the habit of waking up before fudger and praying for Yama and things of that nature. So he said, you know, it's my routine. I can handle a couple of hours before selecting budget, but this is the time when I usually turn in if you can handle this early part of the night, then I can take care of the last half of the night. So he says, okay, footbridge, Alhaji do Mahajan,

00:25:56--> 00:26:18

eu phenomena. So Amar, vinyasa de Allahu talanoa goes to bed. Well, Carmen, I'm sorry, you Sally so the Ansari is keeping watch. Now he says, I'm standing out here on the perch, keeping a watch. But it seemed to be pretty quiet at night. It seemed to be pretty uneventful. So he says, while I'm standing here, I might as well utilize my time. And I might as well just pray.

00:26:19--> 00:27:11

So he starts praying, Allahu Akbar, and he starts praying and he starts reciting Quran in his prayer. The man who was dead set on murdering somebody, he snuck up in the middle of the night. And when he saw the unsavoury in the night in the dark, he could see somebody standing there on the perch. He realized that this is Ruby actual power. This is the individual who is supposed to keep watch and notify anybody notify everyone if anyone tries to come. So for our Modbus admin for what are Goofy, so he before he got too close, he drew an arrow and he shot an arrow and they were expert archers that people had fun. And he hit him hit the target density. So the unsavoury as he's

00:27:11--> 00:27:21

standing there praying and it gets struck by an arrow fantasma who will wonder who he rips it out of his body and he throws it down with habitica even and he remains standing

00:27:23--> 00:27:57

wirkkala tomorrow, maybe salmon Asafa houfy movie, he shot another arrow and hit the unsavoury who was praying again. And once again, the Ansari rips the arrow out, throws it down and continue sending through my other movies any further I will feed then he shot a third arrow and hit the target again, eat him again. And again, the unsought he rips up the arrow and he throws it down. But now what he does is he does recourse to Jude and he finishes his prayer very quickly. And then he wakes up and might have been the acid of the loved one. And he says it's this other

00:27:59--> 00:28:03

bit two, he says Hurry up and get up because I've been hit.

00:28:04--> 00:28:28

So the seconder Amar, vinyasa radi Allahu taala he stands up, the man who's shooting the arrows. He sees that one have just become two, he can see two people now. And he realizes that okay, there's two of them, there must be more of them as well. There could be more of them. And he leaves him there. However, he runs away from there.

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

When Mr. Binney has said, or the Allahu taala on who sees above ambition, bleeding, he says Subhanallah

00:28:37--> 00:29:02

like, he says that a fella above that above me. He says, What Subhanallah? What's going on? Why didn't you wake me up? When I'm Aramark? The first time you were hit, he says going to be sued out in Accra. I was reciting a lengthier shooter from the Quran for now, aka Hata Fida. I didn't want to cut this short, I wanted to finish my sooner for that matter.

00:29:04--> 00:29:18

But when he kept on hitting me with arrows, then I concluded my prayer and I decided to wake you up with him a lot. What am I lucky, Lola and will Dania thoren Imani Rasulullah salatu salam ala be heavily la Katana Sheikh Abdullah.

00:29:21--> 00:29:55

He says and I swear to God, if it was not for the responsibility, and the possibility of me not fulfilling the responsibility that the prophets Allah had entrusted me with and that was keeping watching keeping guard, I would have lost my life. Before I would cut the suit or short like either I would have died or I would have finished my suit on. Those were the only two options. Cutting the sooner short ending before the sooner and completed was not an option for me, but I realized I have a greater responsibility. And so this is a story in the incident that's mentioned as well.

00:29:56--> 00:30:00

And you know, this narration is

00:30:00--> 00:30:41

disgust a lot of times for another region within the realm of fic. that a lot of times, you know, it's it's brought up about the issue of whether or not you know, bleeding breaks your will do or not. And that's a whole nother discussion. I'm not going to get into here at this particular point in time. But the reason why I mentioned that is that at the same times, it's, you know, some people might take this particular narration and look at the conduct of this hobby, and trying to figure out our assessor discuss, does this actually make sense to do something like that you're praying, not even a fold. But a voluntary prayer, that's a mandatory on you in any way, shape, or form. And

00:30:41--> 00:30:47

cutting short a voluntary prayer is permissible, let alone for an emergency.

00:30:48--> 00:31:24

And for him to be to go as far as saying that I would rather die than cut my voluntary prayer short. Like that doesn't make sense. And you know, just doesn't add up in terms of seul and mocassin. And so let's get one thing clear. All of those things are very, very important. They're fine and dandy. That's an area of research and study and even teaching for me personally, at something I engage in. So I definitely value that entire science and that entire discussion, but understand that the Sahaba lived by a higher code.

00:31:26--> 00:31:29

They live by a completely different code.

00:31:30--> 00:31:34

They weren't in the business of doing mathematics when it came to their Islam.

00:31:35--> 00:31:43

They didn't have a spreadsheet and a chart. Where does this rank in terms of they that's that wasn't how they operated.

00:31:44--> 00:31:46

They only had one principle.

00:31:47--> 00:31:48

And that was a law.

00:31:50--> 00:32:21

They lived for law. They breathe for law. They fought for a law, they gave up for a law. They slept for a law, they ate for lunch, they worked for a law, and they were willing to die for a law. It was just a very, very different code and different mindset. And so we hear in our I'm doing quotation marks for those listening who can't see in our quote unquote, enlightenment and sophistication and knowledge. We are in no way

00:32:23--> 00:32:40

capable of sitting here in passing some type of judgment and offering our own analysis and thoughts in regards to the Sahaba and their devotion that their dedication because at the end of the day, these are the same individuals about whom Allah subhanaw taala says Muhammad Rasul Allah will Latina

00:32:41--> 00:32:46

Muhammad, the Messenger of God and the people who are with him who are by his side.

00:32:47--> 00:32:58

The Jalan Sakuma, Allah Holly, these are the same people about whom Allah subhanho wa Taala says, These are people who fulfilled the contract they had with God, for many women,

00:33:00--> 00:33:06

today, some of them lost their lives, fulfilling their contract with God. And some of them are waiting for the next opportunity

00:33:07--> 00:33:22

to lead him to jariwala based on decree law, that these were people that nothing in this world could ever prevent them from standing in front of their master, Allah subhanaw taala and talking to Allah. So, this is a very, very different,

00:33:23--> 00:33:40

you know, mindset altogether. So that was another very remarkable incident that occurred here in this campaign of that today. The last, you know, if you will, side story of the incident of that today. Ah, that is very, very touching.

00:33:42--> 00:33:51

And shows you a lot about the character and the care and the love and the kindness the generosity of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:33:53--> 00:34:42

Jabir bin Abdullah, radi Allahu Allah, Allahu Allah. I'm sorry, Jabir bin Abdullah is a companion of the Prophet Joseph. He was a young man from the unsought. His father, Abdullah was a senior on Sati and companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he had died as a Shaheed in the Battle of the hood. And we talked about him earlier, for those who don't recall that when he died, Jabba the Allahu taala. And who and you know, it was one of those issues where Jabba the Allah Han, who was the eldest of the children of Abdullah, and Abdullah Delano, it seems like he had him when he was still very young. So they were maybe like 20 years apart. So he was like a young father to this

00:34:42--> 00:35:00

young man. And so the dynamic between them they were very, very close. But then he had seven younger sisters. So when the father Abdullah was going to battle in the Battle of boyhood, he said, jabot nothing would please me more than for you to fight by my side and

00:35:00--> 00:35:16

bendable foot by the side of the profits allowed father and son together by the side of the messenger salami setup, but I one of us has got to stay back to look after your sisters and that ain't gonna be me. So you stay back and look after your sisters. We can't leave them.

00:35:17--> 00:35:28

So and I've done a lot of the love with children who ended up dying as a Shaheed in the Battle of a hood. This very tragic Jabulani was devastated. And we talked about the beautiful stories of the process of consoling him.

00:35:29--> 00:36:10

And really checking on him and looking after him and, you know, checking up on him. And the Prophet tells him gave him the Bashara gave him the good news that your father, you know, he's in Paradise, and he was presented before Allah subhanaw taala. And the last is there anything that you want. And he said that, oh, Allah, give me another life and I will once again go and give my life for you. And that from the moment your father's body fell in the battlefield, because it was the daytime and the sun was out, until we buried your father's body. That entire time allowed did not even allow the sun to hit your father's body. But angels were covering him with their with it with their wings,

00:36:10--> 00:36:16

shielding his body from the sunlight. Right. And so the process of consulting

00:36:17--> 00:37:06

so Jabba the Allahu taala on who was with the Prophet system on this particular campaign. And he had a she camel that he had brought for transportation, but he says himself in the narration of insock karasuma Rasul Allah, Allah has with erotica Min unaged Allah Javelin Elijah Malin Lee, the Ethan I went on a camel Excuse me, I went on a camel. But the camel was very weak, very frail, and film a colossal audition jannetty de Falco, Tom de, when the processor whenever we would stop and it's like, the army would start moving again. Everybody would pass me by because my camera just could not move faster. And the habit of the prophets a lot easier than being you know, a caretaker of his

00:37:06--> 00:37:15

people. The process of didn't March at the front of the army like some, you know, victorious, you know, conquer,

00:37:16--> 00:37:41

you know, or boastful, you know, tyrant, the process of would travel at the back of the army, picking up after people making sure nobody got left piano, come on, come on. And he saw that everyone's moving forward. And job it is slowly falling to the back of the army to the point where he fell so far back, that the only one left behind him was the profits allottee center. And Jabari says I wasn't aware that I had gotten so close to the profits allottee center.

00:37:42--> 00:37:53

And, but I had gotten that close to him. And all of a sudden, it felt like somebody was kind of tapping my camera on the back. And kind of you know, giving it the sound to go go go

00:37:54--> 00:38:32

and kind of tapping my camera along the back. And the next thing and instead, I turned over my shoulder to look, and it was the profits a lot he said and he was smiling at me. And with his stick, he was lightly tapping the camel, you know, kind of giving a signal to go go go. And this is Mr. G's out of the profits a lot. He said I'm a miracle of the process of them that when he tapped it, and he said go, he said my camel felt like it kicked in, like turbo kicked in. And my camel started to fly. I started to pass everybody up. And that was a miracle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam so he says that after a while, you know,

00:38:34--> 00:38:45

the prophets Allah He said, um, you know, caught up with me because he wanted to talk to me. And the prophets a lot of them said at the be Ronnie germanica Haha, gotcha. Susie jobid your camels looking good.

00:38:46--> 00:38:53

It's a nice county said would you sell it to me? And he said bull to ban it Boo.

00:38:55--> 00:38:59

Boo laka Rasul Allah, I give to your messenger of God. And he said,

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

No, absolutely not. Well, I can be uneasy. Now, the reason why I brought up the backstory of Java is I told you, six months ago, eight, six to eight months ago, we had the incidents of when Javid lost his father.

00:39:18--> 00:39:45

And he was now responsible for seven younger siblings. And in fact, in the narrations we talked about he even came to the Prophet said, I'm overwhelmed saying, All messenger of God, I just need to talk to somebody. I'm overwhelmed. My father had debt. I have seven younger siblings. I went from one day, just being like a young man, like a 20 year old with dad taking care of me to the next day, having entire family to take care of. I'm overwhelmed and I'm still dealing with the grief of my father.

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

The prophets a lot. He knew all of this, and he also knew that Javid was planning on was trying to get married.

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, will you sell me your camel that's a nice camel and he says, No, no, I gift it to you through the process of said

00:40:00--> 00:40:42

No, no, no, absolutely not. He said, Well, I can be at Nietzsche. He says you have to sell it to me. And this is kind of playful banter between him and the profits a lot. So, so he said boo for Sony. So I said, Okay, name your price. Jabba says, I said to the processor, and then what are you willing to offer? He said, to be determined, I will buy it for $1 $1 He says, good to law, is I said no messenger of God. He then doesn't be no need your rasulillah he says you're not you're just trying to rip me off. Right? You first you say you want to buy my camel. I say I'll give it to you as a gift. You say no, no, you want to buy it now. You can offer me $1 for my camel. That's That's not

00:40:42--> 00:40:55

right. Right. Just kind of playful banter. He says forbidden forbidden humaine through dividends. I said No, that's too cheap. For now. I'll get Farley Ross, who I saw in the process and kept increasing the price hatanaka

00:40:56--> 00:41:01

until he got to like a gram of gold. very lofty price.

00:41:03--> 00:41:44

And I said I forgot arrabida Rasul Allah. So then he shows that they were just playing he says, Is that okay with you now? Will profits alavesa? Is that okay with you? You just wanted to pay me right now. Are you okay with this? Right? I know how to bargain too. And the Profit System said Nah. So I said, Okay, fine. It's good. And he says the process and said, Okay, fine, I've purchased it. Then he said, this, I just figured this was just kind of fun and games. It's just kind of fun. And so after a while, the conversation goes on. And he says to me, yeah, Job Hunters. I watch the battle. I said jab, jab. Did you finally end up getting married? And he says, Now he had a solo law. I did get

00:41:44--> 00:42:02

married. He says I think even them become did you marry a young woman? Or did you marry in an older woman? You marry a young woman, a young girl like yourself? You're a young man, did you marry a young woman? Or did you marry an older woman? I pulled two but they even said none. And I've married an older woman, a woman who was married previously

00:42:03--> 00:42:16

a widow or somebody or a divorce or something. So the prophets a lot, he said, Because Java was still very, very young Shabaab. And so he said a fella Jerry attune to Larry Guha to Larry buki.

00:42:17--> 00:42:18

Right. Well to Larry because

00:42:20--> 00:43:01

the prophets Allah nice him said the job but he said, Yeah, but why didn't you marry a younger woman? You're still a young man. Like a kid. You're still a young man. You have a lot of youthful energy. You married a young woman like yourself. That way, both of y'all can play together, have fun together, grow up together, you know, so that would have made sense. I said, O Messenger of God in a b2c but yo DS I said, O Messenger of God, you know, my father, he was killed in the Battle of of it. What taraka Bonanza husaberg and my father left behind seven daughters. I have seven younger sisters I'm responsible for so I did not want to add an eighth one to them that I'd have to take care of.

00:43:01--> 00:43:08

faneca to Emma attend Jammie Eitan, tomorrow sakana i'd married a woman who can help me raise them.

00:43:09--> 00:43:14

I need a mature, responsible woman who can even take care of me while I take care of the seven of them.

00:43:15--> 00:43:26

So the profits a lot of them at that time, you know, he said a sub to insha Allah. He said no, he made a very good decision. This is smart. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:43:27--> 00:44:04

basically gave him some advice. And the prophets a lot of them told him he said that when we get back to Medina, so then he asked Jabara, Ilana, Why are you in such a hurry? Jabba vilano kind of spoke to the populism. He said, I want to get home quickly. So why are you such a hurry? He said, You know, I'm newly married, I want to get home, I want to see my wife. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Okay, go ahead and try to get home as soon as you can. But then he gave him some advice. He said, Look, because at that particular time, you didn't have things like telephones and communion, modern forms of communication, that they're going to know that we're almost home,

00:44:04--> 00:44:07

when we get to the outskirts of the city of Medina.

00:44:08--> 00:44:30

So he said that the sin of the prophets a lot is from the practice of the prophets a lot even worse, even if it was like earlier in the day like noon time. And they arrived outside of the city of Medina, where they could just go ahead and proceed on into the city before the evening time before the sunset, the processor would not do that. He would make the car or make the army camp outside of Medina.

00:44:32--> 00:44:59

And so he was telling me that when we get back to Medina, the army is going to camp out outside of Medina. You're very eager, you're gonna want to go ahead, but don't do that. He said, because we've been gone for a few days. We've been gone for a number of days. They don't know when we're going to get back. And so just like you are eager to get home. They are eager for you to get home. They're anticipating your arrival. But what happens is if you give them half a day's notice

00:45:01--> 00:45:35

They are able to make preparations, they're able to put together a nice little welcome party for you. Things like that. You see, see how much practicality there is into some of the profits alavesa and how beneficial it is from all aspects that even within the battles of the prophets, a lot of them the can military expeditions and campaigns of the Prophet system. There was such wisdom and such consideration for family and marital dynamics, and how to conduct yourself with your loved ones. It's so remarkable. This is why we study the life of the prophets a lot.

00:45:36--> 00:45:41

And so, he gives you a bit of a lot of this advice. Anyways, they arrived back

00:45:42--> 00:46:15

in the city of Medina. He says then, you know, sometime later, I went to go see the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. I know when we did arrive back in the city of Medina, excuse me, and we got back into the city the next day, the following day. The prophets a lot of him told me he instructed me he said the first thing you're supposed to do the process I was teaching him because he knows Japanese lost his father. So the process that someone's like his father figure now, and he says, Listen, before you go home, you first go to the masjid and you pray to the gods.

00:46:16--> 00:46:35

You pray to God to go to the masjid before you go home. You pray to God to thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for bringing you home safe and sound and rejoining you with your loved ones and then you go home and take that blessing home with you from the house of Allah. Right another student of the prophets allottee setup. So I said okay, absolutely. Right. So

00:46:36--> 00:46:42

we, we listen, we obey. So he said, I went to go pray in the masjid when I was done.

00:46:43--> 00:47:11

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said that when we got to the masjid, he said, Your camel, I purchased it from you remember? And, you know, again, jabbing thought that they were just playing around. But apparently the processing was serious. He said, Your camel I've purchased from you. Hmm, right. You remember again, you don't argue with the man. So he says yes, a messenger of God. He says, Okay, leave your camel here outside the mustard. I'll take it. And then he said beloved Allahu taala. And

00:47:12--> 00:47:30

some narrations mentioned he sent him to Earth man men are found with the Allahu talanoa and he said go and get an opia of gold. The amount of gold I promised him and give it to javis it's his I purchased this camera from him. Yes, sir. He goes and he brings him the amount of gold that he had promised him for the camera. So jabil takes his gold and he goes home.

00:47:31--> 00:47:37

But then the profits a lot he said my for a little while. He says no job.

00:47:38--> 00:47:39

No job.

00:47:40--> 00:48:01

Where's job if somebody says he went home, so he said, Okay, go get him. And he said somebody came to my house and got me fetch me said the Messenger of Allah, Allah. He was looking for you. I said, Okay, so I went back to the masjid and the prophet SAW Some said given to us he see even the first time his nephew says Your father was my brother.

00:48:02--> 00:48:09

His nephew, son, who's BRC Jamali, for wellock You forgot your camel here.

00:48:10--> 00:48:14

You forgot your camel here. He says, Oh messenger of God.

00:48:15--> 00:48:22

I gave you the camel. You gave me the gold. So should I go and get the gold? He says no, no, you take the camera home and you keep the goal.

00:48:23--> 00:48:38

And this was the profits a lot of reasons playful way of helping jabot because he knew young man is taking care of his own family. And he just got married. So the profits a lot he said um, said, You keep the camel and you also keep the goal.

00:48:39--> 00:48:48

And this was the affection, the love, the kindness, the generosity of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam. This is why

00:48:50--> 00:48:52

the Sahaba loved him the way that they did.

00:48:53--> 00:48:55

Well in Nicola Allah caloocan hobby.

00:48:56--> 00:49:39

Right? For bemaraha Medina lucky, Linton. Welcome to further Albion Fadiman Holic, the prophets hasn't had authority. In our times, people are so obsessed with authority. people listening to what I say, I'm in charge, I'm responsible. I'm in charge. I have rank over you. I have such and such position. I have this office I have this title. I'm such and such whether it be in families, whether it be in the community, whether it be at work, whether it be in society, people are obsessed with authority. The problem the profits from had more authority than any human being has ever had. He's the Messenger of Allah sallallahu

00:49:40--> 00:49:50

ala for what a big lie You mean hakima Coffee Masha, Allah had declared in the Parana Allah had taken an oath by himself, unless we're by Allah.

00:49:51--> 00:49:59

philanthropic, Allah swore by himself. And he said, Now you'll be known people will never believe until they recognize your authority or Muhammad

00:50:00--> 00:50:23

A lot of them and they can never even feel anything bad about you having authority. They have to accept your authority and they have to like it. The professor somehow authority, but the prophets Allah bless him was never ever ever preoccupied or concerned or worried about exerting that authority, establishing reminding, hey,

00:50:24--> 00:50:51

you remember who's in charge? That's right. I'm in charge. No, that wasn't how the process was operated. And Allah said that it is because of your gentleness. And it is a blessing of God. It is a mercy of a law that you are so soft, like silk, so soft and adjustable and accommodating to them. If you would have been harsh and strict, because you have the authority, they would have left you long ago.

00:50:52--> 00:51:20

But they stuck by your side. This is who the Messenger of Allah sloty samoas This is why we study his life. This is why we study a Sierra so that we can learn from him and we can learn to be like Him. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all the ability to be more like the messenger salatu salam, and May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the love, the understanding and the implementation of the seed of the process and within our lives.
