In these podcasts we uncover one chapter after another from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in an attempt to learn about him, love him and better ourselves through his example, immersion, mentorship, companionship and therapy. These are just a few of the things we offer, alongside knowledge of the prophetic Biography at Syrah intensive, two weeks dedicated to the study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his noble characteristics. So this winter, join me in Dallas, Texas, alongside your classmates from all over the world, to learn the story of the life of the best of humanity, the mercy to mankind, the prophet muhammad sallallahu

00:00:45--> 00:00:52

alayhi wa sallam, go to Sierra intensive.com to register and for more information

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

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah

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

jela continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at Sierra Nevada we had the prophetic biography. In the last couple of sessions we've been discussing and talking about the Battle of the trench because what's

00:01:17--> 00:01:26

also known as the Battle of the allied armies, who has worked with or has worked to conduct the Battle of the trench, the Battle of the allied armies.

00:01:27--> 00:02:12

So, we in the last couple of sessions we've discussed and talked about exactly what led up to the battle, the plan that was hatched by some of the leaders of bedroom, Naveed and Bunnell taneytown, who were ousted from Medina, exiled from the city of Medina, because they violated the Constitution of the city of Medina. And then they got together with some of the Arab tribes of the north from hazzan. They also were able to recruit who of course, had a very long standing issue, continuous issue with the Muslims and the prophets a lot a sentiment the city of Medina, so they were able to put together this entire army in March on their way towards the city of Medina. We talked about how

00:02:12--> 00:02:47

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after consultation based on the suggestion of Solomon and Pharisees with the Allahu taala, and who they dug a trench, on the exposed side of the city of Medina, of course, there were mountains, securing a certain side, but they dug a trench. And we talked about some of the miraculous events in the beautiful brotherhood and sisterhood and community, and the strength of faith and conviction that was displayed by the prophets, a lot of them of course, but also by the Sahaba, the Muslims, the companions of the prophets and lobbies, and then did the digging up this trench and the enduring of all the difficulty and all the adversity

00:02:47--> 00:03:03

that they were dealing with in terms of hunger, and a lack of financial resources, the imminent approach of a very overwhelming enemy. And in the face of all of this, they displayed, not only just simply courage, but also more importantly, faith and belief among

00:03:04--> 00:03:51

what we're going to talk about today is after the trench was dug, and the army, this allied army, arrived outside of the trench outside of the city of Medina, basically what happened at that time? And what were some of the interactions. Now, I'm going to remind myself and everyone who's here are listening, of the importance and the significance of context. So even though this might be something that you've heard before, and I know for a fact I've mentioned it a number of times, but it is very important to remind ourselves and to also because we're starting from the middle here of the story. So I wouldn't want somebody to just be listening to this to not be aware of the context that a lot

00:03:51--> 00:04:32

of times what has transpired, and this is very unfortunate, and it actually is a disservice to our reading. It's a disservice to the Quran, it's a disservice to the life of the prophets, a lot of them the prophetic biography to see them. When we out of context, tell stories or narrate stories about battles, or about confrontation about such and such person killing such and such person, and this person killed that person. And we described scenarios, fierce scenarios from the battlefield, and we almost pulled them out of their context and present them like a highlights. What that does is that takes away the entire context.

00:04:34--> 00:05:00

And the negative outcome of that is twofold. Number one, in the minds of many young or impressionable Muslims, who might not be fully grounded in their faith and their emotion in the history of their Deen in their religion, they can start to develop an idea or walk away with the impression that Islam that's a core part of Islam or something very abnormal or notable in Islam is the basis

00:05:00--> 00:05:13

Be bloodthirsty to go on a rampage killing people. And that that somehow is some very notable glorified heroic notion of Islam. And that's very deeply problematic.

00:05:14--> 00:06:01

The second danger of approaching things without context, where we almost present like a highlight reel from the battlefield, and that is the life of the Prophet Salamis. And that's the serum. This is a hobby, killing that guy. And it's a hobby killing that guy in this hobby, killing four guys in the battlefield. And that's it, that also in the minds of non Muslims. It also portrays the complete opposite impression of what people actually felt when they interacted with the prophets a lot. He said, people walked away with this overwhelming sense of mercy and compassion, and empathy and forgiveness and kindness and generosity and gentleness, from Mr. Medina lucky Linton Allah. Allah

00:06:01--> 00:06:06

describes the prophets a lovely, semi soft and gentle right as Eastern Allah Hema,

00:06:07--> 00:06:10

right? He's described as being very empathetic

00:06:11--> 00:06:44

Rahmatullah Allah. And so it really distorts the image of Islam. And I, I'll be the first to admit that there are people out there in our world today, who are not interested in the context, who are picking and choosing what they highlight and what they emphasize from our history. And they will take things out of context in order to vilify Muslims to vilify Islam, there's no doubt in them. Absolutely, there will be those people. But those people by and far will be a minority of the people. And a majority of the people are in search of truth.

00:06:45--> 00:07:26

And so we do a disservice to them, we do a disservice to ourselves, we do a disservice to our Dean, when we do not understand context. So just I won't spend a lot of time in this because the the folks that are regularly either following along with the series or attending on a regular basis, that, you know, I don't want to waste your time and I want to move forward with the narrative and the incidents of the Battle of the trench. But I will spend a minute or two just reminding ourselves of the context here. This is happening in the fifth year of the fifth year of the Prophet celebrations residence in the city of Medina. That means this is 18 years after the prophets will always receive

00:07:26--> 00:07:27

revelation.

00:07:28--> 00:08:14

So for 18 years for the first 13 years in Makkah, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the Muslims and anyone who would dare to empathize with them and support them. Were were ridiculed. They were mocked, they were belittled, they were tortured, they were murdered, they were assassinated, kicked out of their homes, chased out of their own homes. That was their life for 13 years. Then when they leave their homes and their families behind them, they go to the city of Medina. They're not left alone. They're, they're constantly harassed, and pursued, and people come after them. And they're sneaking, they're spying. They're scouting the city of Medina, they're, they're conducting raids on

00:08:14--> 00:08:27

the city of Medina. They're trying to pick off Muslims and trying to still kill Muslims wherever they can find them. And not once, but twice, they have marched entire armies in the direction of the city of Medina, the Battle of

00:08:28--> 00:09:14

the Battle of Oakland happened right outside the city of Medina. So this is their context. Now, two years after the bottom level hook, what happens now? They they get together a force and we're going to read about it, but I'll go ahead and mention and now they gather a force of 10,000 people, 10,000 soldiers, that might not sound like a big deal to somebody today. Right? Somebody might say what the Cowboys game there's 90,000 people, right? Well, what's 10,000 people, but when you think about it from a historical perspective, and you understand the circumstances at that time, and how numbers work back then an army of 10,000 is huge, and very overwhelming, and very difficult to overcome.

00:09:14--> 00:09:59

They gather together an army of 10,000 and they marched right up to the city of Medina with every intent to murder every single person in the city of Medina to pillage the city of Medina and burn it to the ground. And the Muslims are so overwhelmed and so outnumbered. And in such a state of just physical, not not spiritual, not spiritual or psychological or emotional, but physical. They're in such an physically they're in such a state of weakness, that they have no choice but to stay within Medina dig a trench around Medina and just fortify themselves inside the city and make your art to Allah subhanho wa Taala to save them. That's the context. There is a bloodthirsty

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

Hungry ruthless army that out numbers that, you know three to one, four to one camped out outside their city, waiting for the first opportunity to come there and murder every single one of them men, women, children, everybody. That's the context. Now once we understand the context now let's read exactly what happened.

00:10:23--> 00:11:05

So even is how one of the early historians and scholars of this era he says that after the prophets a lot ism was done, was done the meaning the Muslims were done digging the trench around the city of Medina. Qureshi arrived near the city of Medina, you know, with 10,000 soldiers. And this was a combination of some of the Jewish tribes, the Quraysh, some of the tribes of hazzan and others, they arrived outside their their profits a lot is in the trench was dug. And they the profits and losses who gathered the Muslims together that let's take stock, let's take a count of how many fighters we have. In case if this defense plan doesn't work, and they were able to gather together 3000 Muslims.

00:11:06--> 00:11:49

So now the army of 10,000 the our allied army comes outside and the Muslim army is inside the trench about 3000 people and they are camped out there at that particular time. The prophets a lot of a sudden because they're on the outskirts of the city of Medina near the trench. The prophets, a lot of them ordered all the women and children to be gathered together and to be put within a few homes that could serve as kind of a fortress as a fortification, put them inside of there and the profits lobby some left a couple of people to a couple of soldiers to guard the women and children and he left Abdullah Maktoum the elderly blind so Javi was a more admin of Medina he left him in charge.

00:11:50--> 00:12:36

And Allah subhanho wa Taala refers to this in the Quran insolent. elizab Imam Bukhari Ramadan Lakota Allah and Harry's from a shot of the Allahu taala and her that she said, she read the ayah is Jacopo menfolk, the comb woman SLM income, what exotic episodul obala to kulu. Era, una bella Luna, that remember the time when they came from on top of you, it seemed like it was such a huge force, they were going to crash down upon you. They were coming from behind you they had surrounded the city of Medina, and what exactly it is of a song that the eyes were overwhelmed, right, your eyes were guarding in all directions confused and dazed. Well been up until it felt like your hearts were

00:12:36--> 00:13:15

going to come up out of your throats because of the nervousness, the panic and the anxiety that you felt at that moment. What doesn't want to be like it. And you placed your faith and trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala that only Allah can say this now, she said that you will handle that that was on the day of conduct, that that was the Battle of the trench. Now one of the things that needs to be understood because there is a in the next session, probably we're going to talk about a very notable incident from the life of the prophet to lobbyism, something that has been the topic of much discussion, it was something that was highlighted and really, you can almost say picked on by the

00:13:15--> 00:13:55

orientalist of Europe, when they started, you know, trying to refute Islam and write negative things about Islam. One of the major incidents that they would point to is called the incidence of binuclear, aka a Jewish tribe that lived outside of the city of Medina. So before we talk about that, we need to understand what transpired at that time. So Ben Okonedo who were a part of Medina, they were part of the alliance of Medina. And they were a part they were signatories. On the Constitution of Medina, they had agreed they had sat with the prophets, a lot of them drafted a constitution for the city of Medina, that the Muslims and the Jewish tribes were all a part of that

00:13:55--> 00:14:33

we will defend the city of Medina with our very last breath, this is a this is home for all of us together. And if somebody attacks you, meaning the Jewish tribes, the Muslims will come to your defense in aid, and if somebody attacks and listen to you will come to the defense and aid and whoever ends up violating this agreement, right, which means not coming to the aid of the other, right the your your neighbor in the city of Medina, whoever violates these terms, will be exiled and forced out of the city of Medina. That is the that is a penalty for the crime. Because you can no longer be trusted, you have violated the trust of your of your of your neighbor, right people who

00:14:33--> 00:14:59

occupied the city together. This tribe have been around for a while not only did they not hold up their end of the bargain, where they would come to the aid of the city of the Muslims to protect the city of Medina. But in fact, they went even further. Unfortunately, what they ended up doing was they ended up joining the Allied army against the Muslims. And so there's a very interesting conversation and

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

exchange that displays their guilds. And this is why as we're going to talk about, but I've never once even objected, they never once tried to say no, no, we didn't do it, because this was a very deliberate decision on their part to stab the Muslims in the back and to violate the constitution of the city of Medina. So even as hot relates that creating a stub, another is the leader of Illuminati, who had been exiled because they had tried to assassinate the prophets a lot. He sent them, right and they had been exiled and he was living in haber. He was the orchestrator of this entire plan. This was all his plan to create this allied army. So he comes to when the army was

00:15:41--> 00:16:01

arriving, he comes to binuclear Eva, and he comes to the house of the leader of a nuclear Eva, his name was gob even said karate, he comes to and he was one of the signatories on the Constitution of Medina, he had signed the Constitution. So he comes to his home, and he knocks on the door.

00:16:02--> 00:16:07

And God, the leader of a nuclear Eagle refuses to open the door.

00:16:09--> 00:16:37

He says, No, I'm not going to open it. For who ate the one who is trying to attack the Muslims in Medina. He says, Wait, Hakata says, What's wrong with your account? Why wouldn't you if that opened the door? He says we have Yeah, he goes, No, no. What's wrong with you? in like a ingrown mush. He said, You are a troublemaker. Why not opening the door for you're a troublemaker, you've come here to make trouble. That's nothing. But I had to.

00:16:38--> 00:17:20

I had made an agreement with Mohammed, I have a peace treaty with Muhammad. I have a pact with the Muslims for less to enact edema veiny. verbena, who I don't want to violate our treaty in our terms. Why? Listen to this? He says, Well, I mean, who illawarra and was because Muhammad has been nothing but honest. And, you know, up rights. He's been nothing but honest and honorable with me. I have seen nothing from Mohammed except for integrity and honesty. So I will not open the door. He says, Wait a minute. He says, What's wrong with you open the door. I just want to talk to you. And he says, Man, I'll be fine. I'm not going to open the door. So then he starts taunting him and teasing

00:17:20--> 00:17:36

him. He says we're lucky enough to meet Elijah Shattuck and Aquila, ma caminhar. He says, oh, you're not opening the door, because you don't want to share food with me. Right? And it sounds silly. But what he's basically calling him on. He's saying that you don't even have a sense of hospitality.

00:17:37--> 00:17:46

Right? You don't even I'm a traveler. I'm knocking on your door, I'm hungry. I'm away from my home. You don't even have the sense to be hospitable.

00:17:47--> 00:18:25

So at that time, he kind of called him out called on the sensitivities. So he opens the door for him. And he says that way. As soon as he gets in, he says, What's wrong with you? g to come here is it daddy oberheiden. Tommy, I've come with you. I've come to you with an opportunity to dominate to become the dominant force. And I've come with you with an ocean of people. He's referring to the army of 10,000 he said I have waves upon waves upon waves of soldiers. So he says what Madoka What are you talking about? And he says that you can be a curation Allah tada Sati ha ha De Anza

00:18:26--> 00:18:38

Solomon Rama will be had fun Allah poverty. How was it ha ha De Anza to be Donna be nakoma illa Jana, but the Looney Looney, Allah Allah.

00:18:39--> 00:19:03

Allah Muhammad Muhammad Maha who I have brought Quraysh with their leaders. I have Robert have fun with their leaders gracious camped out on one side of Medina. But farmers camped out on another side of Medina. And we have they have all agreed and given me their word that they will not leave here until we have uprooted meaning until we have destroyed Muhammad and everyone who's with him. salallahu alayhi wasallam

00:19:05--> 00:19:07

so God says it's anyone lucky.

00:19:08--> 00:19:53

He says you are nothing but bad news. You've come with nothing but trouble will be hegemon. adhara karma who you've come with this out of control plan. You've come with the force that you don't know how to control. You're asking for nothing but trouble you do what you believe it's going to get out of control. When they see you shaken. There's nothing here. This is not good. Nothing good will come of this. He says way hakea he says please stop. Don't do this. For Danny Romana. Leave me and my people and in our peace treaty with Muhammad in the Muslims. Friendly Lama Rahman Muhammad Allah said, Baba and I have seen nothing from Mohammed except for honesty and integrity. He has been

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

nothing but honesty noble and honorable with me. But secondly, my saddle karate fasten

00:20:00--> 00:20:28

So the narration goes on that another leader of Quraysh excuse me, another leader of binocular Eva also responds to huay and his offer his request to join the Allied forces against the Muslims, because blucora joining them is very strategic for them, because now they have an enemy within. Now they have an enemy embedded within Medina. So another leader of an operator also rejects his advances in his offers.

00:20:29--> 00:20:40

So finally, he says to them in lm kung fu photo, so he goes on to keep saying familias de la be Gavin yft.

00:20:42--> 00:20:50

Mahalo. He keeps on insisting keeps on insisting and the word that's used is yesterday new. It means like, how do you how you calm an animal down,

00:20:51--> 00:21:10

that the leaders have been called Eva, they're just freaked out. They're panicking. Right? So he keeps calming him down, calming him down, calming him down, until they finally start to give in. And they start to agree to violate the constitution of Medina to break their agreement with the profits and lobbies of them.

00:21:11--> 00:21:16

So finally, the leaders of an auto trader, they saying the emerging

00:21:18--> 00:22:04

market fund, Mohamed and atolla, McAfee hispanica had die, you see benimar sabak. So he says that, then I want you to agree to one thing, if Corporation had fun, they ended up leaving, and they're not able to defeat Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and the Muslims, then you will grant us protection, you'll take us in because we're violating the treaty. And if you don't end up defeating Muhammad, then we have to pay the consequences. We will be exiled from here. So then you'll take us in at that time. So he agrees, he says yes, I promise that will take care of you and will look after you. So at that time, Gavin will I said he violated the treaty. Another narration also says that, he said, No,

00:22:04--> 00:22:28

I want to guarantee I want to guarantee that you will take care of us. So at that time, create this leader of aluna lead, he gives him 70 of his own men. And he says they will stay here with you basically hostage. So that if this all goes south, if we're not able to defeat Mohamed escalation, have fun and the backing out,

00:22:29--> 00:22:52

then you have so many our government hostage, and you can execute them if we don't take you in and provide you safety and sanctuary. So when he finally says that, he takes the copy of the constitution that they had that they were given, and he rips it up, and he announces the fact that we have violated we have broken our agreements with the Muslims with the profits, a lot of a sudden

00:22:53--> 00:22:55

this news reaches the Prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:22:56--> 00:23:34

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sends two of the unsolved believers of the unsolved, their names are sobbing and sobbing. sobbing Wilde was a leader from the tribe of hosts, and sovereign robot out of the Allahu taala was a leader of the tribe of husbands unsavoury tribes, and the leaders of both tribes. They were Muslims. And they were people who the profits, a lovely set of individuals that he did pendant upon, and he relied upon, and he had a great amount of trust and confidence. And he calls the two of them. And here we see some of the leadership of the profits, a lot of them the genius of the profits and loving somebody, we also see how a leader has to be very

00:23:34--> 00:24:20

cognizant has to be very aware and sensitive to the situation, and a part of the responsibility of leadership. And I've highlighted a lot of these lessons here in the Battle of the trench, because it's very observable and very visible, it's very prominent here, that there might, in the middle of a difficult circumstance, another difficulty might unfold. Right, when things are already difficult, another huge tragedy, another difficulty might unfold. And it's very overwhelming. But a part of the responsibility of leadership at that time is that if you feel that the people that are following you who are already suffering and struggling, right, that if you feel that this, this new development

00:24:20--> 00:24:32

will crush them, it'll break them, then part of the wisdom of leadership is to protect your flock to protect your people from this even this information,

00:24:33--> 00:24:40

that you bear the brunt of it, you shoulder the responsibility of it to protect their sanity

00:24:41--> 00:24:56

and make sure that you don't break them under all that pressure. So the profits amongst everyone hears this news that blooper Eva has violated the agreements. They're out and they joined with the forces. We now have an enemy right here on our borders,

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

the profits along some very quietly close out

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

More often shall be no better because you can trust them. And they're also leaders.

00:25:04--> 00:25:21

And he, and another narration says also he calls up the Lebanon, Aloha and Hawaii, it's been debated to other Ansari Sahaba, who are also considered like amongst the leadership of the unsought. And he says, into the data to help inform, for them to happen.

00:25:23--> 00:25:42

Then Sir, I want you to go and meet with some people from the nuclear radar, and inquire and find out if this is true, then use that I have received, that they have backed out of their agreement with us that they're against us now. And then he says, For encounter happen, Phil, Phil, hello, Lila. And then

00:25:44--> 00:25:54

he says, if it is true, that they are out, then I want you to come back to me. And I want you to let me know in code

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

very subtly, because there was obviously a group constantly around the profits of love him, it's about love the trench, right. So he said, I want you to tell me in code to confirm for me that they have, in fact, backed out of the agreement. What, and then he says what at the foot two feet above me, he says do not cause more anxiety to the Muslims don't further weaken the Muslims, the believers, they're dealing with too much already as it is just let me know what you can get.

00:26:28--> 00:26:56

But if they are still with us, they have not violated the agreement. These are just rumors that maybe the the the enemy is trying to spread to causes some anxiety to get in our heads, that they're still with us, then at that time. So if that's the case, that they are actually still with us, then what I want you to do in that situation, is that I want you to go ahead and announce that they are in fact, still with us.

00:26:57--> 00:26:59

So at that time.

00:27:02--> 00:27:06

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at that time, he tells them that

00:27:07--> 00:27:54

if in fact, they are still with us, then I want you to go ahead and let everyone know that we have nothing to worry about. And that's the bulk Reva they are still with us. There's nothing to worry about. They have remained with us in the back into the agreement. So the narration goes on to basically say that when saddening Robins had been abbadabba de la Coachella and Houma when they go there, and they meet with some of them, and they find out that they have violated the agreement. They say, you know what, we're not with y'all anymore. We're out. And they're so upset at this fact. And they try to convince them for that for the election, whether it was a general health, they tell

00:27:54--> 00:28:33

them look, we understand this is a misjudgment on your part, you have made an incorrect choice and decision right now. Don't do this. This is not a good idea. Stay with us remain with us. You can still re enter into the agreement. We'll go and talk to the prophets a lot. He said that that was just a lapse in judgment, that we're hoping we're all good. And they say at that time, they say no, we don't want to rejoin the prophets a lot. He said we don't want to go back into the agreement. So at that time, so I've been over that or the local town and he gets very angry and upset. And he starts in eration says, You shocking him. He starts like, you know, getting upset with them. Like he

00:28:33--> 00:28:42

starts cursing them out. What are you people doing? You're liars and cheaters. How could you do such a thing? And he gets really, really angry with them. sad when

00:28:44--> 00:29:05

he says in our working magic. He says stop, stop, stop. We didn't come here for this. This is not why we came here. When Mr. Berman and Michelle Milan trachoma what our issue and the affair the issue that we're dealing with is much much bigger than this. We don't have time to waste in you know, back and forth with these people.

00:29:06--> 00:29:21

So Savin Southern or other the Lakota man who lets them know. He says listen obaku radar in Nevada, Alan Mulally, Bain and company, you know that we had an agreement. We had a pact. Well,

00:29:24--> 00:29:52

you saw what happened with balloon ulead. When they violated the Constitution. You saw what happened with them, I'm afraid the same thing where even worse will happen to you. So they said at that time, they said something very violent, inappropriate to him. They basically cursed at him. And the gist of it is is that basically your father would be humiliated by you. Right? And at that time, he says to them, he responds to them. He says they do have that mean at home, Can I smell it become more awesome.

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

That saying such things is not befitting to you? I thought you're better than this. And at that time, he

00:30:00--> 00:30:16

leaves from there. They come back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the prophets of autism has been waiting their arrival. When they arrived back in the prophets, Allah sees them and he's kind of anxious to hear what is the news?

00:30:17--> 00:30:23

Southern Robins had been added to the Allahu taala Anima. They just simply say two words to the prophets Allah. They say Allah, Well

00:30:25--> 00:30:47

done, well done and Cara were the names of the tribes. If you recall, we talked about it in the fourth year. We talked about it a while ago in the fourth year of hijet. When the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had sent that group of reciters, for rock, teachers of the Quran, and they were massacred, by these people, the tribes that massacred them, their names were other than Allah.

00:30:48--> 00:30:55

So meaning that that was a code for just like other than our our betrayed us. We have once again been betrayed.

00:30:56--> 00:30:58

They stabbed us in the back.

00:31:01--> 00:31:03

The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:31:05--> 00:31:11

The narration says that the prophets a lot he said, um, took his, like he had a shawl.

00:31:12--> 00:31:23

When he heard this, the profits a lot, he some light down and he put the shawl over his face, just kind of light down and covered his face. Just to kind of process what's going to happen now.

00:31:24--> 00:31:29

Right, there's a army of 10,000, surrounding the city of Medina,

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

thirsty for blood.

00:31:33--> 00:31:43

Even the, our, our neighbors, who are supposed to have our back at the very least not turn on us. They've also turned on us.

00:31:44--> 00:32:02

And the prophets, Allah was very overwhelmed by this. So he lived down, he covered himself up. And the narration actually says that the Sahaba they saw this step sappiamo and Sabino about that just come back from Burma parade, and that was the reaction of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:32:03--> 00:32:08

And they realize this must not be good news. The prophets, a lot of them seems overwhelmed.

00:32:10--> 00:32:13

And so people started to get kind of, you know, fidgety.

00:32:14--> 00:32:22

Like the Sahaba, the alarm started getting a little anxious, what's going to happen, what happened, what happened, this doesn't look good. This doesn't sound good.

00:32:24--> 00:32:29

The profits, a lot of them set up, remove the cloth from his face, and he said up, she'll be fat free like

00:32:31--> 00:32:34

Congratulations, victory and hope from Allah is coming.

00:32:36--> 00:32:42

And the profit or loss of a loved one he was selling them. At that time, he made

00:32:43--> 00:32:51

that a lot of money. Luca de Beauvoir duck Allahumma intershop now, but

00:32:52--> 00:33:12

there are a lot I asked you for your, for your assistance and your promise of help. And a lot if you want then you will not be worshipped in the earth anymore. Meaning Allah I asked you to protect us and aid us. But if you want to destroy us, then you you are alone. That's what you can do.

00:33:14--> 00:33:16

But I asked you to help us and protect us

00:33:17--> 00:34:01

in another narration, so at that time, when this whole interaction happens, some of them are not the aboon some of the hypocrites in the city of Medina who are constantly causing problems and issues, they started talking now, this gave them their opening to talk and more than cause any type of, you know, confusions in the Muslims. They would only expose themselves in these situations. While the Muslims banded together and started buckling down and making their eye and standing by the side of the profits. A lot of these people, they would just start making more and more trouble. Right? So and they would end up exposing themselves. So one of the hypocrites he said at that time, he said

00:34:01--> 00:34:17

his name was more active in new crusade. He said Ghana Mohamed yagoona Nakula calusa Kesava Thyssen. Mohamad tells us that Islam will spread as far as the Rome, the Roman and the Persian Empire. Well, I have a young man Alana.

00:34:19--> 00:34:23

And we can't even go to the restaurant without worrying about getting killed.

00:34:24--> 00:34:33

Another ocean of new Daisy, another one of the hypocrites. He comes to the prophets, a lot of us when he says jasola in w xR, our terminal

00:34:34--> 00:34:46

he says that our homes are exposed now. Our families are in danger now. And so we need to go home. We're not going to stand here and fight with you. We're going to go and protect our own families.

00:34:47--> 00:34:59

And at that time, Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed in the Quran What is your Kunal Mona Mona Valentina fiocco Louisa Maradona, that remember when the hypocrites they said and those people whose hearts were infected with hypocrisy

00:35:00--> 00:35:09

disbelief Mauer Adam Allahu wa Rasulullah Buddha. These promises that God and His Messenger make to us are nothing but lies with men who

00:35:11--> 00:35:20

remember when a group of them said old people of yesterday, referring to Medina by its old name, trying to say that it was better before Muhammad and his people came here.

00:35:21--> 00:35:37

Love hamanako Why are you here there's no point of view being here. For him to go back home. We established even for the main home. And another group of them comes in pretends they say in these they asked, they pretend like they're asking for permission. They say

00:35:39--> 00:35:51

our families are in danger. And the lessons were my heavy Oh, let me read on a laugh era. Their families were not in danger. These people wanted nothing but to run away from the action to run away from the battlefield.

00:35:52--> 00:36:19

So this is all happening at the same time. And the army has arrived outside the city of Medina in camped outside of their generation say that they stayed for 20 plus days, nearly a month, putting them in charge even as hot says they stayed for almost a month camped out outside of the trench. And there was no extensive hand tab combat, there was an open field fighting except for arrows is being exchanged and we're just shooting arrows across at one another.

00:36:21--> 00:36:21

And

00:36:22--> 00:36:26

again, we see the leadership of the prophets a lot he saw him and his compassion

00:36:27--> 00:36:34

after a number of days, a week two weeks and the Prophet Somalis and saw that the Muslims are really struggling.

00:36:35--> 00:36:45

The prophets a lot of them felt such you know pain for the the condition of the believers, that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

He sent

00:36:50--> 00:37:26

an emissary he sent a messenger from him to two of the leaders of hutzpah. Lafond was one of the three forces now for that are basically combined in this army against the Muslims. And they were a huge part of the army like a third of their army. The prophets, a lot of them sent a message to to the two leaders of hutzpah. All right, their names were not even Harrison, and had it even a movie, he sent a message to them. And he said that, I will give you a third of the crop of Medina.

00:37:27--> 00:37:37

All the dates that grow here in Medina and Medina was known for growing dates, he said, we will give you a third of all the growth all the crop the harvest of the city of Medina,

00:37:39--> 00:37:46

if you as as an agreement, if you will leave this army and retreat back to where you're from,

00:37:47--> 00:38:27

to lessen the numbers and maybe start to we start to kind of chip away at the strength of this army, and maybe start to break some of their convictions and the profits or maybe some was just looking for a way to ease some of the situation of the Muslims. So they took them the message. And there was some conversation going back and forth. So much so that they started drafting the leaders of athon they liked the offer was a lot of money. And see that's the difference here that the believers were there defending their beliefs, their mom, their faith, they were fighting for Atlanta's messenger. These people were they're not really fighting for something they believed in. So they were very

00:38:27--> 00:38:31

persuaded by this. And they started drafting the contract and the agreement.

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

While all this was going on, sadly, more islands have been Ababa. Again, the two leaders of the unsolved they heard about this. So they came to the profits of lobbying and the profits of lobbyists and told them look, this is what's going on. This is the offer that I've made to them. And they're willing to accept the offer. What do y'all think? Should we finalize the agreement?

00:38:55--> 00:39:05

They said something really remarkable at that time. They said you gotta Sula. Omron to hibou Fatah Who am Shay and America la de la Butera nominal.

00:39:07--> 00:39:14

They Sarah messenger of God, if you're doing this because this is what you have decided is the best thing in this situation.

00:39:15--> 00:39:41

All right, then. Or this has come as a direct command from a lot like either you are informing us of your decision number one, or this is a part of Revelation. Then we will do exactly what you're saying. We will help you finalize the agreement we will gather the harvest we will do whatever it is that you're telling us and Shay and personnel who Lana because they knew their beloved messengers a lot.

00:39:42--> 00:39:43

They knew him.

00:39:44--> 00:39:54

They said or is this something that you're doing because you feel bad for us? Because you can't watch us in pain and in difficulty.

00:39:55--> 00:40:00

Is that why you're doing this? The profits a lot of him because he was talking to the the

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

And he had a lot of confidence in them. He said, But shame on us that

00:40:06--> 00:40:53

this is something I'm doing because I can't watch all of you suffer the way I happen. Well, lucky mousemat rodelinda illa and me, Robert Thomas Come on tosun wahida wirkkala bukem maniacally Jellybean for arato and acciara. unconventional catchy menchaca chigan illa Amrit Ma, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, because I swear to Allah, I never would have done something like this, I would not do this. But I've seen I can't watch any longer. All of these people get together and attack you from one united front. And you know enclose in on you from all sides. So I want to try to chip away at their force any way that I can to bring you some type of ease.

00:40:54--> 00:41:01

Something like that either. The Allahu taala Han who remarkable, remarkable individual, and we're going to read about we're going to learn a lot more about him.

00:41:03--> 00:41:08

He said, Yes, will allow messenger of God. But now how would I believe?

00:41:10--> 00:41:11

We know these people from

00:41:12--> 00:41:18

their mushnik on idol worshipers. We used to be one idol worshipers, we know them.

00:41:21--> 00:41:34

We didn't used to worship a lot we didn't know who allow us. But even back then at that time, when we were pushing the coin just like them welcomed. I get Marana and yaku Minotaur. Why electron obey.

00:41:35--> 00:41:56

They knew that they couldn't mess with us. Even back in the days of Geneva, back when we were shooting for idol worshipers just like them. They knew that they couldn't mess with us. They knew that they could never lay a finger on one of our dates. Unless they came in, they bought them from us.

00:41:57--> 00:42:05

We made them pay. And we made the pay a hefty price. Right? We didn't allow ourselves to be pushed around by these people.

00:42:06--> 00:42:14

He says if a heinous criminal law could be Islami, waha Donna who was gonna become a bit naughty.

00:42:15--> 00:42:29

But now that God Allah has honored us with Islam, and the law has guided us to the truth. And the law has strengthened us by giving us you know, messenger of Allah, and by giving us Islam and the Quran.

00:42:30--> 00:42:31

Now,

00:42:32--> 00:42:55

we'll give up our property and our food and our wealth to them. Now we'll grovel in front of them. Milan Abbey has been halogen on messenger of Allah unless you decide otherwise, we don't need to do anything like that. We are not in need of that. Will luckyland take him in a safe, the only thing we offer to them is the sword.

00:42:56--> 00:43:16

They can go back home, safe and sound. They can go back home and will go back home. But if they want anything, the only thing they're going to get as they come here is our swords. That's all they're going to find here. Had they come along again and I will be home God will decide what happens. The profits, a lot of them said until with ACA. He says sod

00:43:19--> 00:43:26

pardon my translation. But until DACA he basically said Saad, you're the man right beside you.

00:43:28--> 00:43:30

That's exactly what I would expect from you.

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

The prophets of London was so pleased that his conviction and sideburn were off.

00:43:37--> 00:43:48

He took the contract that he had sent over and he basically voided the contract and send it back to them said thanks. But no thanks. We rescind our offer. We are no longer interested.

00:43:50--> 00:43:57

At that same time. There were a few other interactions that are just mentioned very briefly and then I shall conclude with that.

00:43:59--> 00:44:12

While the armies were camped out, the Muslims inside the trench, the allied armies, the disbelievers outside the trench, everybody was growing kind of antsy, especially on the side of the disbelievers. So a few of them got together.

00:44:14--> 00:44:47

Some of the individuals I'm an even wood, who is known as a very fierce warrior. In kenema, the son of Abu john who based off the son of Abu Abu lahab, and a few others, they got together and they said that, why don't we get our horses and try to make it through the trench? Let's do something. So they said okay, so they went back, they got a running start to come they found the narrowest part of the trench, and they got a running start and they started running towards the trench.

00:44:48--> 00:45:00

And when they try to get over the trench, the narration says that one of them I'm going to bring up the wood he actually made it over

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

The Trench

00:45:02--> 00:45:24

and he arrived there and he started proclaiming who will fight me who will fight me? I need to know who taught him about the Allahu taala and who came forward. And he said that Yeah, I'm in Quinta de la, la, la jolla. Qureshi, la de la ilaha pelagian. So he said that look,

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

I'm going to make you an offer something that's good for you. And he said for any other, okay? ilaha illallah wa sallahu wa ala Islam. I asked you to believe in Allah, to believe in the Messenger of Allah to embrace Islam. I'm telling you, he says that hasn't really been done it I don't need that.

00:45:47--> 00:45:56

So then he said I needed the Allahu taala and he said for any reason, then I asked you to go back across the trench where you came from.

00:45:57--> 00:46:06

That's the offer I make to you. Those are my two offers either accept Islam or didn't just go right back across the trench. I'll let you go. So he says Lima

00:46:07--> 00:46:11

for we're lucky enough to luck. He says Why?

00:46:13--> 00:46:14

This is why you're free to fight me.

00:46:16--> 00:46:19

Because he says that I can understand. I will I don't want to kill you.

00:46:21--> 00:46:21

He responds

00:46:22--> 00:46:35

by saying Why? Why are you offering me this free to fight me? Don't worry. I don't want to kill you. I leave the hotel Andrew says Well, lucky we're lucky enough to like he says Trust me. I've got no problem killing you.

00:46:36--> 00:46:43

Right. I have no problem dealing with you. So I'm became really furious when you heard this response.

00:46:44--> 00:46:56

And he charged in the direction of the Allahu taala who and Ali radi Allahu taala who dodged his strike towards him and the Allahu taala on who with one strike finished him on the spot.

00:46:57--> 00:47:09

And the narrate some of the narrations describe it in quite a bit of gruesome detail, but basically saying that the Allahu taala on whose sword just completely pierced through him.

00:47:10--> 00:47:41

Another narration also mentions that when he came across and he started, you know, screaming May your bodies remain your bodies and he may your body's really who will fight me who will fight me. I even taught him about the Allahu taala who said to the prophets, Allah and Allah Haryana be Allah. Let me go find him on messenger of Allah, the Prophet ceylonese, who said in the who is the Prophet Salamis from Cena, Ali, you know, you're special to me. That's, that ain't no scrub. Right? That's a fierce fighter I'ma Sit down. No, no, no, you're not fighting.

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

Then again, he started saying allows you to only abuse there is no men here who will fight me.

00:47:49--> 00:47:52

So and he started calling people out by names and again

00:47:54--> 00:48:21

and again and sudama let me go and fight him. And again, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, ageless. Then the third time they started calling out again. And again, how do you know the Alcatel Lucent jasola Anna, Please let me go. And he said no. This is ima and Alito, the Allahu taala who said what can I know? It's ama, but trust me on messenger of Allah please. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Okay, go.

00:48:22--> 00:48:32

And Allah The Allahu talanoa. At that time when he goes there, he asks him, man, anta amor says man answer and he says, Ali, this is Ali. He says that

00:48:34--> 00:49:00

you're aloof from Russia. And he says, and I even know a bit taller. Yes, I'm the son of Abu Talib. He says later, can I send somebody else not you? Woman, I'm not make a man who are assuming. He said, Send me a man. You're too young. You're a boy. Send me a man. I need the 11 children who at that time, he says, send me somebody older. You're a boy, send me a man. He says for any

00:49:01--> 00:49:06

damage. Because I'd hate to kill a boy. I literally said like me, we're like

00:49:08--> 00:49:37

a duck. He says, but I got no problem killing you. So he got really angry and furious at that time. And that's when he attacked, leave me alone who I knew. And I knew that the Allahu taala dodged him, and then finished him off with his sword. And when this happened now, this is something that I wanted to mention. This is obviously this is why telling your story like this. That's why I gave you the context in the beginning. Consider their circumstances. But look at the honor of the prophets alavesa when they killed him

00:49:38--> 00:49:59

at that time, the machinery comb because this man up the wood, he was considered like a hero to the muffins into the price. So they sent a message saying, Let us come and take the body of armor so that we can bury him properly.

00:50:00--> 00:50:04

And we can pay our respects. Let us have his body, he's considered a hero.

00:50:06--> 00:50:11

And they said that we will pay you 10,000

00:50:12--> 00:50:13

like $10,000

00:50:15--> 00:51:00

for you surrendering his dead body to us, just transferring his dead body to us will pay you $10,000. Now I want us to go back and revisit what we talked about previously, the Muslims did not have enough food to eat. The only way they had eaten for days was through a miracle of the profits lobby, some were one little small pot of food, a little bowl of stew through a miracle of orange juice out of the profits, alabi some fed 800 people. People had stones tied to their stomachs. People were writhing, twisting and you know, rolling around on the ground in pain, pangs of hunger. That was a situation of Muslims, they're offering $10,000 $10,000 let us just have his dead body.

00:51:02--> 00:51:03

That seems like an opportunity.

00:51:05--> 00:51:07

But it don't matter whether it's war.

00:51:08--> 00:51:10

We have a code we live by.

00:51:11--> 00:51:28

We have principles that we conduct ourselves with honor and dignity. That's what our a man teaches us even in the most difficult of circumstances, even in war. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, who Allah come, you can come and take his body learn aku seminal nota

00:51:30--> 00:52:01

We do not charge people for the bodies of their dead. No, no, we do not consider money that would be taken in exchange for taking a dead body to pay to take to take care of the dead body, offer whatever funeral rites, the money that will be taken from that we do not consider it Hello, it is not permissible for us. Please come and take his body. That was the honor of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi Salaam, that is the legacy of Muhammad Sallallahu.

00:52:02--> 00:52:10

That even in this situation award, we have principles, we have integrity, we have dignity, we have honor.

00:52:11--> 00:52:50

So in sha Allah, just so that it doesn't go too much longer. There's a few more incidents I wanted to kind of mention. But I'll go ahead and conclude here today in sha Allah with that note in that lesson, and then inshallah we'll continue on from here in the next session. May Allah subhanaw taala grants us all the ability to practice everything that was said and heard. So how to light how to use 100 kilometers from the ignition to align the antenna to the lake, at a small request of particularly, we have a lot of brothers and sisters, a lot of folks who are tuned in online or maybe even listening to the recording afterwards. That's Alhamdulillah in order to be able to keep up with

00:52:50--> 00:53:34

the series. With the podcast and all the different lectures and recordings, we have a very easy way that you're able to do that. I know that everyone has a cell phone and everyone's probably been itching to take their cell phone out and look at it for the last few minutes. If you text, the word column, q A l a n to the number 66866. That's the number 66866 you text the word column to it. What that will do is that will subscribe you to our email where you'll receive all the recordings, all the lectures, all the different programs that we're conducting, and as we continue to release, inshallah all the lectures and the recordings inshallah you'll have access to all of that. So just

00:53:34--> 00:53:38

text the word column 266866. Does that make sense?
