00:00:56--> 00:01:09

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah while he was actually here, marine shala continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sirata number we had the prophetic biography.

00:01:10--> 00:01:53

Today inshallah we're going to be discussing and talking about the end of the fourth year of higit. On the end of the fourth year of the profits, a lot of students residents in the city of Medina. Now what we've discussed previously is, are some of the events that occurred during the fourth year. Namely, previously we talked about one two that did a very difficult journey undertaken by the prophets a lot, he summoned the Sahaba, the laguan home that resulted in them bandaging their feet, and enduring a lot of hardship. We now arrived towards the end The end of the fourth year of Hinduism. Now, this is going to take us back I've consistently said something throughout our

00:01:53--> 00:02:35

discussion of the fourth year of digital. And that is, a lot of the events of the fourth year were a result, a consequence, and a reaction to the Battle of Oh hood with that which had occurred towards the end of the third year of his rather previous year, that a lot of these events that are happening here in the fourth year that we've read about phenomena, omega dum, dum de and the capture of some of the Sahaba, like zaidan, hubbub. And we also talked about zaidan, hubbub, we also talked about the massacre of the Sahaba. At beaten by owner, a lot of these events were

00:02:36--> 00:03:18

occurred basically as a reaction to the Battle of boyhood. What we're going to talk about here today, one of the major events of this year is actually directly a result of the Battle of word not even indirect results, it is a direct result. So if we recall from the battle level code, and you know, folks can go back and read about the Battle of war hood, you can listen to the previous sessions on the podcast about the Battle of horde as well, that when the battle concluded, there was a little bit of a back and forth about soufiane before he left or heard before he left the battlefield. The Muslims had of course sustained some very serious losses, as we talked about in a

00:03:18--> 00:03:52

lot of detail. And as he was leaving double soufiane he made a few announcements in pronouncements he stood there and he kind of announced a few things and said a few things some of them were very meant to be very offensive. And to kind of like we say rub it in almost gloat about their suppose that victory or apparent victory at the Battle of war hood. And some of them were also challenges about the future and what lies ahead in their conflict with one another the Muslims end up with age. And he said things like

00:03:55--> 00:04:35

what do you do now? Or do you do a few o'clock Muslim? That you will find that some of your fallen have been mutilated? lamb I'm gonna be here Well, I'm gonna who I did not tell people to mutilate the dead, but I did not prevent them either. And he said a few other things about like Latin ozada. Today, our idols have proved to be dominant, and the prophets a lot. So previously, he had told the Sahaba not to engage in, you know what we call today in our culture. The young people refer to it as almost like trash talk, right? When they're playing sports or competing against one another. The prophets, a lot of them told the Sahaba not to engage in this type of talk because it's not

00:04:35--> 00:04:48

befitting but when Abu sufian started talking about the idols and started speaking disrespectfully about the deen and about Allah subhanho wa Taala the prophets a lot of them toda la de Lago and respond to him. And

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

almost Katara the Allahu talana started to respond to him a lot with one hour of boom that Allah is our Lord and Master is your Lord and Master and he started to respond to him.

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

As abusive Young was departing from the battlefield, he said that we will meet at the place of butter.

00:05:08--> 00:05:29

We will meet at the place of butter a year from today. We will meet at the place of brother a year from today he had issued this challenge. And so a year from the date, so we talked about what to record the previous battle that we talked about the journey, which was in the beginning of jumada moolah.

00:05:30--> 00:05:59

The profits a lot of them returned back to Medina from that journey because without a car, the journey of bandages, he'd returned back from that remained. He resided remained in Medina for the remainder of jumada oola jumada, Akira, and the month of Raja, the prophets a lot of them stayed in the city of Medina, when the month of chabang came, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gathered the Sahaba together, some of the books of Sierra

00:06:00--> 00:06:09

certain scholars of the Sierra like allottee. They mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he journeyed he traveled with

00:06:10--> 00:06:24

nearly 1500 Sahaba. So this is a very large group for the Muslims. So the prophets, a lot of people gathered together about 1500 Sahaba. And the prophets, a lot of them set out from Medina, in the direction of better

00:06:25--> 00:07:04

to meet Abu sufian with the army of operation Abu sufian. It should the challenge I will see you A year later, right in the month of Siobhan at butter, I will see you there. And we'll finish this once and for all. And so this you know, on one side, a lot of times because of the climate and the culture and a lot of the political rhetoric that goes on, we talk we emphasize and rightfully so, when we clarify about how the prophets a lot of them in the Sahaba did not necessarily seek out bloodshed. You know, war is a lot of times a consequence of political necessity, and necessary in order to be able to defend one's beliefs in life and property. But the prophets a lot of the

00:07:04--> 00:07:43

settlement the Sahaba did not seek out bloodshed. At the same time. This also established the element of dignity and honor, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said you have challenged us you have called us and we will respond to the challenge. We will stand our ground because at the same time, the implications of not going could have also been very severe. That could be seen as that could be understood or determined as weakness, or fearfulness that they are afraid of us now they are weak now. And that could further embolden the mannequins to launch an attack against Medina, which we see ended up happening in the fifth year anyways in the Battle of the trench, hospital Azov

00:07:43--> 00:08:01

which we'll be talking about in a week or two. And so the profits alabi seldom gathered 1500 Sahaba will be a lot more unknown. And he marched out in the direction of bud to meet there at the appointed time and place that Abou soufiane had challenged them to the previous year after the incident of overheard

00:08:02--> 00:08:49

there's a couple of different narrations a lot of the the says that the prophets a lot he some left Abdullah bin raha radi Allahu taala and who a great Sahabi who is a poet and a warrior, he had left him in charge of the city of Medina in his absence, but even is how can even Haitian they mentioned something very fascinating that the individual the prophets, a lot of them left in charge of the city of Medina was the Abdullah, who was the son of Abdullah new babe in Zulu. Now, to refresh our memory, Abdullah knew begun to lose the Father. He is who is oftentimes referred to as insulin when you think he's the leader of the hypocrites, right? And he was a very staunch opponent of the

00:08:49--> 00:09:28

prophets, allottee seven of the Muslims. He was constantly trying to undermine the authority of the prophets a lot he said I'm trying to he was never successful, but nevertheless he kept attempting to, he was constantly trying to cause discord amongst the Muslims and constantly in contact and communication conspiring against the Muslims and Medina he was in constant communication and contact with the Jews in and around Medina, the Moroccans the operation Mecca, he was always in contact with these people conspiring against the Muslims and Medina and the prophets a lot he said them so he's a very, very problematic individual. And the prophets a lot he sent them you can take tolerated him to

00:09:28--> 00:09:59

a certain degree, he relegated him, he did not allow him to cause any greater harm. But at the same time, he tolerated him because he pretended to be Muslim, he would add the second that the situation would become even slightly heated, and he would be called out on what he had been up to. And some of his inner workings. He would immediately proclaim to be a Muslim and claimed to be you know, loyal to Islam and the prophets a lot he said Um, and then go right back to his previous actions, right and so the prophets a lot he seldom taught had to tolerate him because the prophets a lot of them said otherwise people will say

00:10:00--> 00:10:49

Mohammed kills his own people will either Bella and but his son Abdullah, who had the same name as a father, Abdullah bin Abdullah. The son was a true Muslim was a true believer. Well, hacer una Islamic who is Islam was very it was one of excellence and he in fact had on multiple occasions spoken to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about, you know, just this. This is very troublesome and is very difficult predicaments that he found himself in, where he was a firm believer, a sincere believer dedicated to alignments messengers a lot easier, no, but he was, you know, stuck with this father, who was just had such malicious intent towards align His messengers a

00:10:49--> 00:11:05

lot. Hmm. So he had a very he was stuck in a predicament and he had spoken to the Prophet tell us on multiple occasions, we're going to see later on as well, that he would he would end up having confrontations even with his father at which the prophets a lot of them would advise him on what to do and what not to do.

00:11:06--> 00:11:45

But we'll talk about that at its rightful time. So even he Sharman eminence Hawk, some of the scholars of this era mentioned that the sun was the one the profits allegedly from left in charge of the city of Medina. And again, from that we can see the wisdom of the prophets, a lot of them, the the, you know, the kindness, the generosity, the empathy and the wisdom of the prophets, a lot of them that the profits, a lot of them did not hold the crimes or in the sins of the father against the son. He didn't do them. And in fact, the profits a lot he set up, I mean, think about how difficult that would be for any of us.

00:11:46--> 00:12:41

Right? And think about how, you know, a lot of times our own hatred and jealousy and envy and anger, and and malice, you know, bold and, and, and anger gets the best of us, right that if somebody says or does something unbecoming to us, somebody says or does something inappropriate with us, then forget about that individual, that or that person's children, that person's entire extended family, all of a sudden, is now you know, an enemy to us. We declare war against anyone who lives in that person's neighborhood has finished this is it right. So that's, that's problematic. But the Messenger of Allah syllogism, we use a key him. He was sent to purify us and purify our hearts, and

00:12:41--> 00:13:20

teach us how to purify our inner conditions. And so the profits allottee zone was exemplary in that regard. And we see that the profits has not only does not hold the father's actions against the sun, but the profits of autism as the clarity, the vision, the the honor, the nobility, ability to be able to see the good qualities within the sun. And the prophets, Allah is still able to note that not only is this young man, a good young man, but he has leadership potential. And the prophets, a lot of them puts him in charge of the city of Medina in his own absence.

00:13:22--> 00:14:02

And so that is the example of the messengers, a lot of them. And as I've been saying, especially last couple of sessions. This is why we study the life of the prophets, a lot of these, you know, along with everything else, of course, we all know about the big lessons and the big events. But when we sit down in detail in depth, to study the life of the prophets a lot is and where it takes us weeks and weeks and weeks session after session after session to go over something that maybe we would have skimmed through in 20 minutes. This is the benefit that we're able to observe and see. And really mine, you know, get into the depths of each and every single little action of the

00:14:02--> 00:14:15

prophets allottee. So I might be able to pull the gems and the wisdom from there. And so this is a profound lesson on how to deal with people, both the good and the bad. And so the prophets a lot

00:14:16--> 00:14:55

departs from the city of Medina with about 1500 Sahaba. He leaves as I mentioned in the narration, at least of urbanists Hopkin had been a sham, which is usually what is given preference to he departs with he puts a Abdullah, the son of Abdullah in your bathing suit in charge of the city of Medina, and the prophets, a lot of them proceeds onto the place of Mecca. Now, Abou soufiane hearing, remembering also that he's the one who had issued the challenge, and then hearing that the prophets a lot he has departed from the city of Medina. He also gathers a force together and they set out from the city of Mecca.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

And some say that he reached a little bit outside of the city.

00:15:00--> 00:15:13

Maka, some of the books of history mentioned that he proceeded a little bit further but still fairly close to the city of Macau a place called Isfahan, which we've talked about before, which is closer to Makkah than it is better

00:15:14--> 00:15:40

that he reached at that particular point. And then he announced, he, you know, turned to the forces, and he announced to them that he had brought with him Yeah, Mashallah Pradesh, in the hula, usually who come Illa Maha see around the fishes or Watashi wa buena de Leben. He says that old people of flourish, it makes sense to go and fight during the time of prosperity.

00:15:41--> 00:15:57

It makes sense to go and engage in a battle in a war during the time of prosperity, where you are reaping and harvesting the fruits from the trees, where you are drinking the milk of the animals who are nice and healthy and fat. But he says fair enough.

00:16:00--> 00:16:12

But this year has been very difficult. We've been dealing with a drought, we've been dealing with some economic hardship, what you need Roger on for God, he says, I'm going back to my car, you should go back as well.

00:16:13--> 00:16:54

So that's his little out. Right that he basically bails he flakes. And so he says, I'm going to go back because things are bad back at home. And so I need to go back home. And I advise you to do the same for Roger and us and the people went back home. But this is the interesting thing, right? For some MacArthur Genius. So we when they got back to Makkah, because they had left Macondo all of this premise and pomp of we're gonna go and finish off Muhammad Sallallahu, alayhi wasallam and his people, and we're gonna let them know once and for all, and then they go, they camp out, it was fine for a few days. And then they turn around and they come back home. When they came back. The people

00:16:54--> 00:17:30

at MCC are waiting there. They're like, how'd you get back so fast? What happened? And they said, Oh, you know, we went there, we got to us fine. We thought about it for a while. And we said we should just come home. So the people of MCI started taunting them calling them j Xu. So we so we basically was, what they would do is that they would take like wheat or barley or oats, grain, they would take grain. And when they would mix it up sometimes with you know, different other little things like some dates or, you know, raisins and things like that, they would mix it all up, and it would be almost like a mixture, they would kind of grind it down almost into a powder, they would

00:17:30--> 00:18:04

take all these different things, they would mix it up, they would grind it, dry it and then grind it down into a powder. And then they would package it very tightly. And because it was good for travel, it was easy to travel, think about like almost having like, you know, just having like like protein shakes, right, or protein bars, that was basically their equivalent. And this was common amongst the herbs. So when they would go out for battle, that's what they would do, they would pack this type of food and they would take it and it was very easy. What they would do is when it was time to eat, they will take a little bit of water, they would put some of it in it, they would mix it up and it

00:18:04--> 00:18:39

would turn into like a porridge or something like that. in case somebody doesn't know what I'm talking about, be like keyed. Okay, so I think that works better. So then it would turn into that type of like, you know, almost like a pudding. And then that's they would just eat it. It was quick, it was easy. It was fast, and it was nourishing to the body. So it was very common during those times. And they would have whole bags of this and that's what would feed the army. So they basically went camped out there for a few days now that they knew they weren't going ahead. They basically finished an entire supply that was for a much longer journey. Right might as well and then they came

00:18:39--> 00:19:16

back all full in fact with added a few pounds. So the people in Mecca started taunting them. Joshua, we they call them the army of protein bars, right? They've been packing on the probe they've been knocking down the protein bars Mashallah, right so instead of coming back having lost some blood that came back having gained a few pounds, right so the people in Makkah started taunting them as well. In the Maharaja yaku and they were they were saying in the Maharashtra bonus a week you went there to go eat? Right you went there to go eat. So the profits a lot he said I'm is now they're at the place of abundance, waiting for them to show up these people flaked out, you know, had their

00:19:16--> 00:19:42

little protein bar bar d protein bar party. And then they went ahead and came to win back to Makkah, the profits, a lot of them stayed camped out at the place of butter for eight days. Because that was typically considered like a standard of that time. All right, it was a standard of that time that when you went out for a fixed appointment, like a fixed meeting, like in the battlefield, you went out there and you gave the enemy a days from your arrival to show up

00:19:43--> 00:20:00

or to communicate or whatever they needed. You gave them a days. And after eight days, you departed back and now at that point in time, you could not be called the retreating army. You You have fulfilled the challenge. Right. So the prophets, a lot of them stayed for eight days and after the completion of that eight day period,

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

And now the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he returned back to the city of Medina. However, before the prophets, a lot of them returned back. There were just a couple of other interactions. mushy, even Amma Domini who belong to

00:20:16--> 00:20:19

excuse me but no Dora. This was

00:20:21--> 00:21:03

a tribe a Bedouin tribe that lives near the area Ubud. Ben will Damara, one of their leaders, machine, hammer, he came to meet the prophets a lot, he said. And what's very interesting is, this is going to go all the way back to the early part of the second year of his era, you know, over two, nearly two years ago, that nearly two years ago, the profits, a lot of them had a small campaign, a small battle that was called the husband who went down. It was one of the first because it was one of the first campaigns of the prophets a lot he said that he participated in in the Medina Naira. And there wasn't any fighting or anything. But the objectives there was because a lot of the Bedouin

00:21:03--> 00:21:39

tribes, when the prophets, a lot of them migrated to the city of Medina, they started like, you know, scoping out the Muslims and Medina, and even plotting and planning how they would attack them or, you know, fight them and things like that. So the prophets, a lot of them put together, initially armies of two 300 Sahaba. And he went out to these specific strategic spots, a ways from Medina outside of Medina, and he camped out there for a few days, and then the tribes would come there and the prophets, a lot of them had entered into alliances and agreements, peace treaties with these tribes, you want to attack us, we won't attack you. And if somebody else attacks us, you will

00:21:39--> 00:22:05

come and help us defend ourselves. And if somebody comes in attacks, you will come help you defend yourself. Right. He had established these these agreements in these alliances with some of these tribes. So blue dama was one of the tribes that the profits a lot of them had established such a treaty with. So as the prophets a lot of humans there with this army of 1500 people, this leader of this tribe, and Odom Rashid bin Ahmed, he comes to meet the prophets a lot, he says, and he says, Yeah, Muhammad

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

Ali,

00:22:09--> 00:22:41

have you come to fight against separation at this place? And the prophets, a lot of them said no, um, yeah, kabani de Moura said, Yes, Oh, brother have been udara respecting the terms of the treaty, but the prophets a lot. He's also sensed a little bit of an agitation or a little bit of a confrontational tone from him. So the Prophet talathi some says, we're in shutdown, I did not elect Mark anabaena will be Nicola Naka. He says, however, let's be clear about one thing. I came here to fight Qureshi, I'm not here to fight you.

00:22:43--> 00:23:11

But I sense a little bit of aggression and agitation in your voice. If you want, we can know the previous agreement that we had. And then we can settle things, if that's what you'd like. I want to take this opportunity to explain one thing very fascinating again, because if somebody without context, reads that it sounds like Oh, there we go. Again, these Muslims going around picking a fight. Right. So how do we exactly understand this? You have to understand these are the Bedouin tribes of Arabia.

00:23:13--> 00:23:37

The Bedouins had a particular mannerism to them. And it's very prominently displayed in the profits, a lot of times interactions with the veterans, one of the most, you know, one of my own personal favorite interactions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam with an individual is with a man who would come to visit the prophets a lot him in the ninth year of Egypt, or shortly before the passing of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:23:39--> 00:23:41

His name escapes me right now.

00:23:42--> 00:23:47

I don't know why, but a better one man would come to visit the prophets a lot. He said, um,

00:23:48--> 00:23:52

and he the way he would speak to the prophets, yeah, Muhammad.

00:23:53--> 00:24:27

Right. He kind of like the way he spoke to them. And the profitsystem spoke to him similarly, it's a very beautiful interaction. But eventually he ends up accepting Islam and the prophets, a lot of them informs him of the obligations of the deen and the religion. And he says, I'm going to go back and teach this to my people. So it's a very beautiful interaction, Hadith from the end of the life of the prophets a lot, he said. But the reason why I bring that up is the Bedouins had a particular mannerism to them. And he This is also part of the wisdom and the lesson from the life of the prophets a lot isn't that you know, as elleebana we talked about the Allahu taala and who taught us

00:24:27--> 00:24:33

he said kelemen Naseby, Maya Angelou speak to people in a way they can understand and comprehend,

00:24:34--> 00:25:00

right and zelena Samana Zilla, whom interact with people according to their culture, and their temperament and their demeanor. And that's very important to know. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam knew that when you speak to the Bedouins, this was not like picking a fight. But when you speak to the veterans, there was a little bit of you got to pound your fist on the table and you got to talk very confidently because there's a whole thought process.

00:25:00--> 00:25:05

behind it, these betta wins, you are their allies.

00:25:06--> 00:25:46

They don't want to see you being meek and humble and oh, Mashallah, brother, thank you for visiting us right now that doesn't inspire confidence within them. Because they'll say, look at these people, their backs are broken. That was an expression that they had their backs are broken, right, that these people were kind of allies are they going to make? We need to go talk to somebody else? We should go talk to the kurush these people, Medina is spoiled them. Right. Well, I have to believe but that was the mentality. So the prophets allottee some speaks to him in a way he says, yes. Brother have been udara let him know, look, you're my brother. Right? We have an agreement. We are

00:25:46--> 00:26:24

allies, you are my brother. But at the same time, if you want, we can know we can void our previous agreement and we can settle this if you'd like. And look at his response. He says now Allaha Mohammed, he says no, no, no, I swear to god or Mohammed, there's no need for that. marlana, Vitaly caminhada I'm here to mess with you. Marlin Abdullah caminhada. I'm here to mess with you. I don't we don't we don't need any of that. So the prophets, a lot of them understood the psychology of these individuals. And he speaks to them in a way that inspires confidence. Because as soon as the man hears this, he says, okay, okay. All right. That's good. That's good. That's a dude who's going

00:26:24--> 00:27:00

to get her back, because that's what they were interested in. Alright, survival. And then the prophets, a lot of them returned back to the city of Medina. And there was no fighting that occurred on this particular journey. This is called what to buy drill aphylla. This is called the Second Battle of budget, or the second bunker campaign, because there was no battle. But it's called the second budget campaign. All right. There's a lot more detail here. I won't get into all of it. But I mentioned just a little bit of it. You know, one of the one of the very interesting and fascinating dynamics at that particular time, was that poetry was a major and very powerful medium of

00:27:00--> 00:27:01

communication.

00:27:03--> 00:27:17

And so, in this conflict between the Munchkins and the Muslims, there was a lot of back and forth and a lot of it was in the form of poetry. So now that the Muslims had gone there, set stayed there for eight days, as was the custom,

00:27:18--> 00:28:02

the custom of the land, and nobody showed up to confront them, even though they're the ones who have issued the challenge. They flaked on their own challenge, right. Abdullah bin la hora de Allahu taala anhu he wrote some poetry and sent it to the Quraysh kind of letting them know that look, you know, we know what's up. And everyone's taking notice of the fact that you people, you know, had your little party, it was fine and went back home. Everybody knows. All right, we're keeping score we just want you to know. And so he wrote the poetry I'll just mention he said, What about Savannah butter on film legend Lima De Lima he said can mama Cana raffia for optimal Lola Katana for Nikita,

00:28:02--> 00:28:49

the dummy man was cut off cotton Medallia terracotta he also Allah Azza wa evening he was about janin terracotta huzzah. I'll say tomorrow, Sula, la fille de de Newcombe. We're gonna see unless he can aha via for anyone enough to Mooney. lacar elu fiddley rasulillah he Allah Malia, Katana hula na delphina, behind he shahabad, Lana, fue, lumati layli hodja. Just to kind of briefly, it's difficult to translate a word for word because it's poetry. It has a lot of expression in it. But basically what he's saying is that abusive young had made an appointment with us at the place of brother. We showed up but we didn't find anybody coming from their side. He says that I swear that if they would

00:28:49--> 00:29:37

have come and medicine the battlefield, we would have, we would they would have left humiliated, and their families would have been mourning some people. He says that we went to the same place where Atiba and Abuja when we had last left them dead, the previous badla brother, he says, You people have opposed the Messenger of Allah and chosen a very terrible course. And this will only lead you to ruin. And he says that if what I'm saying seems offensive to you, and you want to say something offensive to me, that's okay. Because I've dedicated me my life, my family and all my wealth to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam. He says we have followed him, and we will never ever leave him

00:29:37--> 00:30:00

for anything or anyone. He is our shining star that guides us in the darkness of the night. Right. So he spoke these very powerful words. And then the narrations go on to say Hassan bin sabots radi Allahu taala who similarly wrote some poetry and there was particularly kind of a dynamic between Hassan bin sabot or the Allahu anhu and Abu Sophia. They constantly used to kind of

00:30:00--> 00:30:21

Respond to one another. So Hassan min, Tabitha wrote something or said some poetry, and then I will soufiane responded to him back and forth. But that basically was the battle. The second meeting, the second campaign have been the last thing I wanted to mention here, because there's a revelation of an ayah. At this particular incident during this campaign,

00:30:22--> 00:31:03

many of the Sahaba had kind of this impression, or had this idea that they didn't expect the mccanns to actually come and show up for the battle, but they came prepared, but many of the Sahaba because this was around the time in the season, where they would basically have a marketplace. And since there were so many Sahaba 1500. This was kind of like a particular time when they would exchange and trade a lot of goods. Right. So this was a time for market. So what they did was they ended up bringing a lot of their trading goods with them. On this particular campaign. They were camped out there for eight days, nobody was showing up. So with the permission of the prophets a lot, he

00:31:03--> 00:31:44

suddenly started buying and selling and trading and they also set up a market for the nearby Bedouin tribes to be able to come and buy and purchase and trade and do whatever they needed to do. And the narrations mentioned alacati and albaraka dimensions for a combi battery most probably bothering with that and most similar de kameoka to fear from Anita young, they stayed there for eight days for Raja Ravi homina did hunger humaine by the time they returned back, they had made twice as much as they have come with, like a lot granted and Baraka and blessing in their business in their market that they had set up there as well. And that's where they went back and at that time Allah subhanho

00:31:44--> 00:32:30

wa Taala revealed the ayah from Surah Al e Imran surah. Number three is number 174. where Allah subhana wa tada says, Be near Mateen mean Allahu wa fuddling that with the blessing of Allah and the benevolence of Allah subhanho wa Taala the gifts of Allah lemon Sassoon soon, no harm came to them. What about Oh, this one a lot. And they follow the path that leads to the pleasure of Allah, Allah who felina aldine and Allah subhanaw taala has a very great blessing that He bestows upon the slaves. So this ayah was revealed at that time that because they did what align His messengers, a lot of them commanded them and asked them to do, they not only did not end up meeting any Hon, but

00:32:30--> 00:32:37

they were able to go back with the blessing and the gifts from Allah subhanaw taala, where they were able to double their money and double their profits.

00:32:38--> 00:33:09

And that was the last major campaign of the fourth year. Now here towards the end of the session, what I'd like to mention is some of the other incidents of the fourth year. This is from the style of some of the writers such as Eben cathedra Rahim, Allahu taala, and others that what they'll do is at the end of the discussion of a particular year of AIDS, they will then kind of consolidate some of the other notable events of that particular year. So I'd like to kind of go through them here at this particular point.

00:33:10--> 00:33:14

It's mentioned that in the month of Juma the oola, in the fourth year of hegira,

00:33:16--> 00:33:24

the grandson of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, who was his name was Abdullah, he was the son of earthman been a fan

00:33:25--> 00:33:27

and the daughter of the prophets Allah,

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

who had passed away two years ago at the conclusion of the Battle of butter.

00:33:34--> 00:34:13

At the conclusion of the Battle of butter, rupiah, radi Allahu taala, and her her son, Ray who had lost his mother, this is the grandson of the prophets a lot he said him, he passed away during the fourth year of VEDA in the month of Ramadhan. Allah earlier this year, while the prophets allottee son was in Medina, he was six years old at the time a child, he had fallen ill, and he passed away in his illness. And it's mentioned that the prophets allottee seminar Othman, been a fan. Of course, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam wash the body participate in the washing of the body and the shrouding of the body, the profits a lot he offered the janazah for his grandson and then a commandment are

00:34:13--> 00:34:31

found in the profits are some god you know, when you lower body into the grave, somebody has to get down into the grave and lower the body in the Profit System in Northland, been our fun lowered the body of the child into the grave. This was the son of Earth man and the grandson of the prophets alone, so a very tragic loss in the life of the prophets a lot he sent him.

00:34:32--> 00:34:59

It was also in this fourth year of his era, that one of the very notable companions, one of the early Muslims in fact, it's mentioned that he was one of the one of the first individuals to become a Muslim, Abu Salah, radi Allahu taala and who abou Santa Maria de La Cucina via two relationships to the profits allottee setup. Number one, his mother, his mother, whose name was Barbara

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

Binta Abdulmutallab

00:35:03--> 00:35:20

his mother, Abu Salim his mother was Abu Salim. His name by the way was Abdullah Abdullah bin Abdullah Asad, even Hillel even Abdullah Omar ibn Muslim Aleppo Rashid Al masumi. His mother was the aunt of the prophets Elisa,

00:35:21--> 00:36:04

the mother of boo said Emma, and the father of the Prophet sesam. Were brother and sister. All right, so he was a first cousin of the prophets allottee setup, so very close. On top of that, both the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and Abu cinema had been nursed by the same woman through labor, who was the slave who was owned by Abu lahab he was freed later on through a by malachai. Bella had, she had nursed breastfed both the prophets Allah and Abu Salah, so they were foster brothers, rubber brothers milk brothers. So this was a double relationship. They were not only cousins, but they were also brothers. And just as a side note, not to get into too much detail. We talked about it all the

00:36:04--> 00:36:43

way back in the beginning, where we talked about the mothers of the prophets a lot he sent them, the women who had nursed him that the prophets a lot of them todos you heard I mean, everybody, my your friend, woman and NASA, that what the relationships that are established through blood. Similarly milk establishes those relationships. So once a woman nurses a child, she is his mother. All right, so they were brothers, in that sense. A very brief we've talked about Abu Salah back in the very beginning of the early people to accept Islam, but our brief snapshot of just you know who he was, he accepted Islam on the same day as our VEDA.

00:36:44--> 00:37:26

It will Jarrah Othman bonnafon, Arkham Arkham radi Allahu taala and home, they all accepted Islam on the same day in the very first few days of new boo and Prophethood. So he was from back in the day. He had stuck by the side of the prophets a lot from from the very first from the very getgo. He was sent along with his wife almost Salah by the prophets, a lot of essential Hypatia to East Africa on that initial migration. So they were some of those people. There was a group of the people who had gone to Habesha who had returned back to Makkah, they were amongst that group. So they had come back to Makkah. Then we talked about we dedicated an entire session to talking about the very tragic and

00:37:26--> 00:37:34

difficult story of the migration of the family of Abu Salah. How when they tried to leave Medina and leave Mecca to go to Medina excuse me,

00:37:35--> 00:38:16

how the family of oma salah and Abu Salah, showed up and tore the whole family apart. And they took they they pushed up in Santa Monica side, almost Emma's family took her and abou Solomon's family took their son, and they split the whole family apart and they were separated for a very long time almost a year. Until then they were finally reunited in Cuba right outside of Medina. So they had been through a lot. And abou Salama had participated in the battles above that and or hood with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So right, so he was somebody who had fought by the side of the prophets a lot. He's in the process of trusting him very, very much. Unfortunately, during the

00:38:16--> 00:39:00

Battle of offroad, he had sustained an injury in his shoulder, he had sustained a wound in his shoulder. He had spent about a month or so recovering, and he had recovered fairly well, for the most part he had seemed like he was healthy and recovered. And so a few months later, after a little while later, after he was recovered, and he presented himself to the prophets a lot. He said that I'm ready. The prophets a lot of them sent him on one of the campaigns we talked about, and we alluded to it earlier, to lead the group of Sahaba unfortunately, during that journey, he re injured reopen the wound, and he got infected and he came back to Medina very, very ill and very sick. And

00:39:00--> 00:39:03

that illness and sickness led to his passing led to his death.

00:39:05--> 00:39:15

What's very interesting and very fascinating about you know, talking about his passing and talking about, you know, his death is that

00:39:18--> 00:39:24

Abu Salah, he narrates only one Hadith from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:39:25--> 00:39:26

And,

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

you know, I he only narrates one Hadith from the prophets a lot easier than and that is the Hadith that the Prophet that Abu Salah, radi Allahu taala and who

00:39:40--> 00:39:41

he says

00:39:42--> 00:39:59

Ooh, Salah narrates this hadith is found in the Muslims of Lima Muhammad that Osama says attorney Abu Salah Yeoman Minh and the Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam one day, Musa Lama says Abu Salah my husband at that time he came

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

home for after spending some time with the profits of Lisa, for pallidotomy entrepreneurs realize a lot is Emma Boleyn. I heard something from the profits a lot today for Serena to be here. And it made me so happy.

00:40:15--> 00:40:27

Like it was so profound what I heard from the profits allottee I was fascinated by what I heard from him today. And he goes on to say that the prophets a lot of them said live in Cebu I hadn't met a Muslim ina mostly but

00:40:28--> 00:40:55

that whenever any Muslim suffers some type of a loss or is dealing with a tragedy for your strategy or in the movie, but he and when he deals with this loss or tragedy, he says in the law you are in your own. And then he says from way up, he makes the following do our Allahumma junie famously Betty was lovely feta mean ha beruwala reward me

00:40:56--> 00:41:15

in my difficulty in my adversity and give me something better than what I have lost. This is a drop in and out formula that whenever anyone reacts to a loss in this manner, in unlikely they make it on your own and then says to Allah majan if he knows anybody

00:41:17--> 00:41:25

that Allah subhanaw taala will in fact, give that person something better and Allah will in fact reward that person for their difficulty.

00:41:26--> 00:41:56

So almost Allah says for happy to Allah caminho I memorize that and I learned it from my husband who sent him at the time for number two fear Abu Salah when Abu Salah passed away is step two, I said in Allahu ala herodion were called to along my journey Fimo CBT was loosely hate amin ha and I made the same to other Allah reward me in my loss and give me something better. She says but for a moment I thought to myself I had full conviction in the door.

00:41:58--> 00:42:07

Right But I thought to myself, Raja to Elena, to me, Emily Hayden, Mina de Salama. Where will I ever find a better husband in Abu Salah

00:42:08--> 00:42:22

Where will I ever find a better husband Abu Salah phenomena in dirty when my daughter was over because I will send him I passed away in you know sure about a two weeks after he had returned back from that journey in the month of Ramadhan Buddha.

00:42:23--> 00:42:28

When my ADA was finished in the month of chawan after Ramadan

00:42:29--> 00:43:13

for the metadata entity when my ADA was done, it was completed was over. It's done. Alia Rasulullah salatu salam, the prophets a lot as permission to come and visit me. When I blew it happened Lee, I was tanning a hide the skin of an animal I was drying it out. I was timing I was working. So my hands were kind of dirty for herself. Do they aminal kara. So I washed my hands properly. What are then Tila, who I you know, got properly dressed covered up. I sat down and I said please come in for the Atilla who we saw that a woman has shoe hollyford I put a comfortable pillow. And I asked the profits allowed him to have a seat for Canada and he had the profits a lot of them sat down on the

00:43:13--> 00:43:19

pillow for Hata bunny NFC and the profits a lot he presented the proposal to me

00:43:20--> 00:43:30

he proposed to marry me for lama photochemically amine modality he when the prophets a lot of him was done with you know the proposal. I said O Messenger of Allah

00:43:31--> 00:43:40

mabie Allah upon Allah, Allah takuna bigger Akbar. She says that it's not that I would not be honored to be your wife.

00:43:41--> 00:44:05

But she says there's there's an issue and I want to be very open and transparent with you. And this from this we see the etiquette as well of the openness and the straightforwardness of discussion at the time of considering marriage that she said well I can meet him Rajon figa rotten shalida I'm a very very private closed off woman.

00:44:07--> 00:44:48

Like I just I have difficulty warming up to people and kind of letting people into my life. It's just the way I am. Right. I'm very to myself. For half Antara, Manisha and you either been near la Hubby, he and I knowing myself I know that it will take me some time to get comfortable with you to warm up to you to really, you know, conduct myself as a wife should conduct herself with her husband. And I'm afraid that of offending you In the meantime, while I get over my own issues, and that Allah would be upset with me because you are the Messenger of God, you would be my husband, but that wouldn't change the fact that you are the Messenger of God and I cannot offend you. Right. I'd

00:44:48--> 00:44:51

rather not be married to you than rather marry you and offend you.

00:44:53--> 00:44:58

She says number two, why not Imperato adultery sin. I'm also an older woman.

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

I'm an older

00:45:00--> 00:45:25

Woman, I mean, you just that's you should know that. Right? So I'm not a younger woman, I'm an older woman. And number three, we're another to Ireland. And I have children. I have children, I have to look over, I'm busy and have a lot of responsibility to my kids who have lost their father. The prophets a lot, he said, um, said, Okay, I hear you loud and clear. He says, uh, my mother Cortina Leila De La Hoya. And

00:45:26--> 00:46:06

he says that as for that apprehension that you have about kind of getting comfortable, you know, maybe in terms of privacy and intimacy, that apprehension or inhibition that you have a less power tele will make that easier for you. I'm not worried about that. And that's the profits, a lot of sums way of saying that, you know, don't worry, I'll be very accommodating and understanding. Right, that also shows the gentleness and the chivalry of the messenger ceylonese. Right. Number two, he says what my mother currently medicine says as far as you talking about being an old woman, for cassava named mithila, the cassava, what do I look like?

00:46:08--> 00:46:35

is beautiful, right? He says, What do I he says, I'm already I have dealt with what you're talking about. What do I look like I'm an older man, I would like to have an older mature woman that I can converse with, and that can understand what I'm talking about. So and he says, As for the third point that you made, why mama is a karate minella young cat the honor of the messengers allottee so why mama documentary alpha in America, yada yadi says you talk about your children, your children will be my children.

00:46:36--> 00:46:48

Why are you worried? Your kids will be my kids. You won't be looking after them alone. You won't have to take care of them alone. You won't have to provide for them alone. I'm here. I will be your husband and I will be a father to them.

00:46:49--> 00:47:35

And so she says that I at that time agreed to marry the messengers a lot, he said and I was married to the prophets a lot of the time and she goes on to say fucka Abdullah Nia, Lago b&b Santa Marta Hara Minho. Rasulullah Lysa Larissa, it's a very profound statement, she says, and in fact, the last part of what Allah did give me, someone better than abou Selma, which there weren't many of those in the world, but he gave me better than Abu salah and that is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, right so very beautiful narration and so this also happened during the fourth year of digital, the fourth year of the profits a lot asylums residents in the city of Medina, a couple of

00:47:36--> 00:47:44

other very quick points of major or notable things that happened during this fourth year of higit. Ah

00:47:47--> 00:48:13

actually earlier in the year I should have mentioned this earlier, earlier in the year. Hussein are the Allahu taala on who was born to Arlene foster model the Allahu taala and Omar right so Hussein, the grandson of the process, and was also born during the fourth year of his era. Another very notable event that happened as well earlier in this year was that the prophets a lot of them married another woman, whose name was Dana bent, Jose Ma.

00:48:14--> 00:48:15

Xena, uzima.

00:48:17--> 00:48:52

She was previously mentioned, issues when she was previously married. It will Athena in Alibaba. He mentioned that she was previously married to Abdullah bin Josh. Why is that notable? So Xena? radi Allahu Allahu designup. Zina bin Jose Ma. She was a woman of Makkah. She was a Moroccan woman. She was married to Abdullah bin geohash who is Abdullah bin geohash. He is the cousin of the prophets Allah. And he is the same Abdullah bin geohash, who a year ago, was killed in the Battle of art. So she was a widow.

00:48:53--> 00:49:09

He was killed in the Battle of boyhood, fighting in the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He was actually along with Hamza, the Allahu terlalu. His body was mutilated, along with Hamza laquan. Right so the prophets Allah who married his widow, again to take care of his family.

00:49:10--> 00:49:15

She was a very remarkable woman. She was known her title was attacking,

00:49:17--> 00:49:59

attacking the mother of the poor. And she was called that the Kathy sadaqa t harv. alayka morbidly halloumi, Sania Allium that she was known this because she used to take care of the poor in Medina, she used to feed them take care of she was like a mother to anybody who could not take care of themselves. And the profits he loves him gave her a marriage gift, which was very valuable. He gave her 12 and a half, you know, grams of gold as her mouth. And of course, what did she do with that she used that and again, taking care of the orphans and the poor in Medina. But very tragically, it actually mentioned she passed away two months after marrying the profits a lot. So

00:50:01--> 00:50:21

She passed away two months later. Right? So, but she because of that, of course, you know, she had the honor and dignity of being forever remembered as a mother of the believers, right as one of the wives of the Prophet Solomon as a mother of the believers. So this also happened during the fourth year of digital.

00:50:22--> 00:50:27

And lastly, and finally, another

00:50:29--> 00:50:35

interesting notable fact about the fourth year of digital, it's mentioned in sahadi.

00:50:37--> 00:50:38

That

00:50:40--> 00:51:19

is mentioned in Sahih Bukhari yesterday. And but it's also mentioned in the books of Timothy and Buddhahood, and other books as well. That they had been Sabbath. Now who is a been Sabbath very quickly on mentioned zaven Sabbath or the Allahu taala, who is a young Companion of the Prophet syllogism he's an unsightly he's from Medina. He was one of the foremost raw and father of the Quran. He was a specialist in the area of the Quran. He was taught the Quran by the prophets a lot SLM in the Prophet system recommended him as a teacher of the Quran. Not only that, but he had also learned about inheritance law, meat off. He had also learned about inheritance law from the

00:51:19--> 00:51:21

prophets, a lot of them and the prophets, a lot of them says

00:51:22--> 00:52:00

it is a habit that if you ever have a question about inheritance go to Sabin fabrics. And the Sahaba themselves had so much confidence in him that when Abu Bakr radi Allahu Jalan who needed to create an appoint a group, like a project manager, when it came to the compilation of the Quran, after the passing of the Prophet asms. They'd been thought it was a project manager for the compilation of the Quran. And again, when northmen or the Allahu taala knew was publishing the Messiah and standardizing them to send to all four corners of the Muslim world. zaven Sabbath was a part of the panel that was appointed there. So he's a very sharp, very knowledgeable, respected Companion of the

00:52:00--> 00:52:36

Prophet sallallahu sallam. He was very, very young at this time. And the prophets, a lot of them you know, we've talked about a few incidents like banana, Tanaka that the profits, a lot of someone's having a difficult time and dealing with some of the Jewish tribes in and around Medina. The prophets, a lot of them became very skeptical and very doubtful of some of the Jewish translators. He felt that they were instigating and they wouldn't translate properly. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam expressed, he said, I don't fully trust them. I would like to have one of my own people translating for me. So they said, Okay, so he told me they'd been sabbat I want you to learn their

00:52:36--> 00:53:15

language. I want you to learn Hebrew, and study even their religious texts, and therefore be my translator. And so they've been fabulous in the narration of the Sahil. He says the alum to houfy Hamza Ashura Yeoman, I learned the Hebrew language in 15 days, and I became the official translator of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So just such remarkable, talented genius people remind you of the statement of Abdullah bin Massoud where he says Allah subhanho wa Taala chose these people for the companionship of the messengers a lot he said them May Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to benefit from the Sierra, study the life of the prophets a lot hmm be inspired and be guided by

00:53:15--> 00:53:28

it. As Abdullah bin Noah has said, made the prophets a lot easier to be our shining star that guides us in the darkness of the night. So kinda like who will be hungry he Subhana columbium Nick Nationale La ilaha illa Anta Misaki Rukavina to be like
