smilla will hamdullah salatu salam ala rasulillah who Allah Allah he was actually he edge marine jela continuing with our study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a sirata number we had the prophetic biography. In the previous session we were talking about, we concluded the study of one of the major incidents or major events rather of the life of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam, known as the Treaty of who they be, who they be, which was at the end, the very end, the tail end of the sixth year of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his residence in the city of Medina, or as we refer to it, the sixth year of higit on So, what we'll be talking about now
is the beginning of the seventh year of higit Ah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, residents in the city of Medina. And the narrations about the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam basically mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam returned back from who they be,
towards, of course, the end of the year because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to go perform the ombre, which was the original intent of the journey of who they be. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to
turn it off, okay, I got the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to go perform the Ramadan. And of course, he was blocked he was prevented from performing the Ramadan. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam instead of performing the Ramadan, according to the terms of the treaty, and the agreement, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam instead, entered into the treaty, the agreement of the BIA and then returned back from that place of who they be are right outside of the city of Mecca to the city of Medina.
Along with that, of course, we talked about this, I'm not going to rehash all the details. But along with that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also received the revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala, which instructed him what to do in the situation, what is to be done in the circumstance where someone has put on the head arm in order to perform 100 camera, but then they are blocked? Do you know primarily by the enemy or due to you know any other situation or circumstance, they are then blocked for performing the camera or the hedge? What are they to do in that situation. And of course, the instruction was that you go as far as you can. But because there is a legitimate reason
that is blocking you, you exit from the ROM shaving the head, offering whatever sacrifice that you intended to offer. And then you return back from there with the intention in place to return back and perform the Hajj and Umrah at your next available opportunity. So that's exactly what happened. And of course, the Treaty of de Bie already had the agreement in place that we will come back a year from this date to perform the ombre at that particular time.
So that's exactly what the prophets a lot of them did. Now, the books of history in the books of narration basically mentioned Musab in the aka, for instance, emammal bayhealth. He also in his de la luna Buddha, in his heart also mentioned this as well, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he came back from who they be, he resided in the city of Medina for the remainder of the month of the hedger. And then the beginning of the month of Muharram of the following year, the seventh year,
and a little while into the month of Muharram. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at that time, departed the city of Medina once again for what we know as the Battle of cable.
Now to explain this and some of the historians are specific say
The profits are lovely. Some resided, stayed in Medina for about 20 days after returning back from the Treaty of hurt Abia, he was in Medina for 20 days before he departed for labor again. And in fact, now now to talk about the Battle of labor. Why did the profits a lot of them go to the Battle of clay but what led to the Battle of labor? Alright, so haber was a place to the north of the city of Medina, that was considered a stronghold. It was known as the city of fortresses, and it was considered a stronghold for the Jewish tribes in the Arabian Peninsula. And in fact, banana did when they had been expelled from the city of Medina due to violating the Constitution of Medina and also
committing treason by attempting to assassinate the prophets a lot a sentiment that is something that they had confessed to, they confessed to attempting to assassinate the prophets a lot. He seldom the Prophet, the people, many of the people have been hoonah lead, they went and took up residence in the place of labor. And in fact, in the About a year or a year and a half ago, we talked about the incidents in the fifth year of Hades and all we talked about the incidents, that is known as the Battle of the trench, or hospital zarb, the battle against the defense of Medina against the Allied forces, the allied armies.
The the the entire plan of the Battle of the trencher has with those allied armies or allied forces, they were formed in this in the city of labor. And haber was the headquarters for this entire plan. And some of the leaders of the of the people of Cape Cod, actually were the main conspirators behind the Battle of the trench. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for over a year had put off dealing with the people of Cuba. He had put it off for over a year, because there were so many other things that were keeping them busy and keeping them preoccupied. We talked about in the sixth year, the prophets, a lot of them had so many other things that he had to deal with, like arogya. He also
had to deal with the burning Masonic, right banal, Masonic, so he had many other things that kept him preoccupied. So the prophets, a lot of them Finally, almost a year and a half later, got around to dealing with the people of haber.
And not only that, but some of the Sahaba also mentioned that when Allah subhanaw taala, revealed certain fats, and we talked about this the revelation of Sultan phots happened on the journey back from who they BIA to Medina, Allah subhanho wa Taala, specifically in sort of two foot says what I thought by whom for 10. But even that, in the beginning of sort of the pseudo victory, Allah says enough a dynamic of a time will be now we have granted you a very open, large huge victory, that that result that refers to the conquest of Mecca, the opening of the city of Mecca, which was to occur in the eighth year of hegira. And la casa de la hora de la jolla. Bill Huck, right, that would
also talk about that as well. But in the sutra, Allah says, Well, I sat back home firsthand Taliban, that However, even though the greater larger victory is yet to come, Allah subhanho wa Taala promises them a very near close, more immediate victory until the time for the larger victory comes. And many of the Sahaba have commentary on that particular ayah. That that refers to the Battle of haber. So now that we are, you know, a little over a year, almost a year and a half out from the Battle of the trench. Allah subhanaw taala now instructed the prophets a lot he said them to go and deal with this hostile enemy. And this hostile force that resides not too far away from the city of
Medina that has already once launched an attack against the city of Medina to basically go and deal with them at this point, and to go and resolve the situation. So that there's there's hostile enemy is no longer a threat to the city of Medina and to the Muslims.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the month of Muharram, at the beginning of the seventh year of digital, the prophets a lot of the time along with the Muslims sets out in the direction of the city of labor, along with the Muslims. And some of the narration like even heisha mentioned that he left New pneumophila even Abdullah la FEA in charge of the city of Medina, this was a companion Sahabi of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Now before we talk about the Battle of hatred and everything that transpires there, one of the things that I wanted to share here that is very, very interesting
if you recall from our we discussed it
Here in our series on the life of the Prophet says, I mean our CETA study, we talked about it here, or maybe you've read about it in the Sierra book and if you don't recall, I'll mention it and it's something that I would recommend reading up on or going back and listening to again.
In the days of mcda there was a very fascinating story about an individual who came to Makkah and ended up accepting Islam and then going back to his people with instruction from the prophets a lot he said um, and that was a story of two failed in amor adulti. To fail even Amma dosi. Now to Fabian amor, as I talked about previously, and you can read about or listen to the previous podcasts a previous recording, to fail an armor was considered a very, you know, respected leader of his time and he was considered a very smart man and intellectual of his time. And he had come to MCC on some type of business or another. And he had accepted Islam during that visit. He was sent back to his
people after spending some time and learning the essentials at that time from the prophets, a lot of the sudden, he was sent back to his people to preach to his people, after going to his people in attempting to preach to them, but finding them to be very difficult to communicate with the Prophet sallallaahu. To vaping hammer comes back to Makkah and complains about his people to the prophets a lot. He said I'm and in fact goes as far as asking the prophets a lot easier for them to make do either Allah destroys his people, with the exception of his wife and his father, because they were the two who accepted Islam. Nobody else responded positively or favorably to his message and to his
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a response to the request have to fail, he actually reprimands to fail. And he says that no, no, you are incorrect, and you are not understanding how to interact with your people properly. But in fact, the prophets allowed him instructs him, go back to your people preach to your people, but be gentle with them, be kind with them, and befriend them, you know, win their hearts over. And that's how you communicate the message to them. Because you are asking them to change their beliefs. You're asking them to change their lives, you're asking them to change, maybe even their value system. That is a huge demand from these people. So you're going to
have to accommodate them and work with them. And so he sends him back, and to fail goes back to his people. And I mentioned that at that particular time, that to fail would spend the next decade, the better part of the next decade, preaching to his people working with his people communicating with his people. And the Sahaba would not see him again for at least 10, maybe even 12 years.
And this is the moment when to fail comes back. So to fail comes to Medina, after having converted the bulk of his tribe, to Islam, more than 80 families and families at that particular time worse, you know, very large collections of people, right, because there's two things number one, even the nuclear family at that particular time was very large, right, sometimes there were two three households within one family, or there were at least, you know, half a dozen to a dozen children within each family. So there were a very large collections of individuals. Not only that, but sometimes referring to a family just had a bigger meaning that they would consider, you know,
siblings and all of their families and all of their children to be one family. And so we're talking about when we say more than 80 families, we're talking about at the very least like 1000 people, if not more, okay, so to fail comes back with 80 families, right, which is probably close to if not more than 1000 people. And he arrives in the city of Medina with all of these people who have accepted Islam and are eager to meet the prophets a lot of Islam and learn their Deen and their faith in their religion.
But in doing so, when they arrive there, they find that the prophets a lot of the time and a lot of the Muslims are not in the city of Medina. So abou radar, or the Allahu taala and who tells the story and he says that when we arrived in the city of Medina, we did not find the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam there. In fact, the prophets allowed him we found we arrived at night and in the morning prayer we found an individual by the name of Seba, even their own full da a lot, Fanny, who was leading the federal prayer and in the fudger prayer he recited from suits Miriam gaff hyah and sod in the first Seneca and then in the second guy he recited wait on the mill toffee Finn,
certainly moto 15. So he remembered that much detail. And he says that after praying selected budget, we found out that the profits allowed him was enabled which was not too far away. So
So we again prepared for the journey. And we set out in the direction of labor until we finally came to the place of labor. But by the time we arrived in Hayward, the victory of haven had already been achieved, which we will talk about, the victory of Habana had already occurred. So when we arrived, the prophets a lot ism greeted us. And in fact, the Sahaba say, we looked off into the horizon, and we sought to fail coming and behind to fail. We saw so many people coming from over the hill, that the entire horizon became filled with people.
And a Buddha or the Allahu taala, and who specifically mentioned that the battle was over, but the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he addressed all the Muslims, and he said, these new brothers and sisters of ours have arrived, if you allow me, I would like to distribute to them a portion of the spoils of war as a gift to them for their arrival and to welcome them into our community. And of course, the Muslims were more than, you know, happy to offer this gift to their new brothers and sisters, and it was given to them.
Nevertheless, going back to the scene at the at the Battle of labor, so they arrive at the place of labor. And the there's a little bit of a some narration that also mentions some of the experiences on the journey to the Battle of clay, but that now at this particular time, in the seventh year of digital, Islam was spreading in that region, and Muslims were being found in a lot of different places.
So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam it mentioned specifically that a couple of the places where he prayed on the journey to haber, the prophets, a lot of them ended up establishing a mustard there. He prayed there. And that was the prophets, a lot of him kind of initiating, like a grand opening of a Masjid by the prophets, a lot of him leading the prayer there. And that eventually became a place of prayer, a Masjid for the people, the Muslims that were in that area.
So as they were proceeding towards
the prophets, a lot of them after they pray to us about one place that was very close to the place of labor, the prophets a lottery, some assets, how about please bring some food? Right, I'm hungry, you're hungry, everyone's hungry, bring some food. And when they brought, they said, Okay, I sold a lot they brought a week. Now what sweet is, is that they would take some flour, they would grind up some date, some barley, some wheat, right, some, some fat, some some butter, right? Things like that, they would kind of grind it up and mix it up and dry it. So think of almost like a dry oatmeal or granola mix. Right? That's what it was. But it's considered very simple food. It's like very,
it's very efficient, right? It's very travel friendly. And it gets the job done. It's like It's like eating like, like a Clif Bar. Right? So it's for the purposes of utility. But it's not very satisfying. Like it's not considered like a nice meal. Right? So they brought that so we extend the profits a lot. He said, I'm Cesar so we can he says, Do we have anything else and they said he had us a lot. We don't have anything else simple people didn't have much. So the prophets, a lot of them told them okay, warm up some water, boil some water, mix it in like oatmeal, like you would cook oatmeal. And then everybody ate that. The Protestants I made that and everybody ate that and that's
all they have to eat. And the narration Sava specifically mentioned that after they got done eating that sweet that like kind of like oatmeal mix that porridge, the profits allowed him rinsed out his mouth and he was saying for motive and then the process of them led the Sahaba in the market of prayer. And the reason why this is also relevant as well as that earlier the Prophet says I taught this Ahava some etiquette that whenever you eat something that has been cooked and do will do before you pray again. But they specifically noted that the prophets a lot they seldom ate this after it had been cooked on. You know, in hot water had been boiled and cooked. And the prophets a lot of
them ate it. And he just rinsed out his mouth and then he prayed and he did not do will do again. And that is specifically to note the fact that the prophecy of some was what we call abrogation or the process of was removing the obligation something was never obligatory to begin with, but more so some mentioned that he was removing the obligation of having to do will do that it was some training the processor was giving to them, meaning that try to make sure that you clean up after you have eaten food so it was to teach them good habits.
Nevertheless, they continue on and they proceed. And a mumble hottie specifically mentions this narration that Ahmed ignore acquah ami, Aqua. This is the uncle of the Sahaba the young shahabi that we known as Salma Aqua, but Salah was not the son of Aqua his name was actually selama Eben amor Aqua, he was the grandson of aliqua so his uncle whose name was Ahmed Salama, he was a young sob he was known as a warrior. It said that he could run as fast as a horse and why and he was also known to be
able to hit a target while moving like you could while running. He could take arrows from his quiver load them and shoot them and hit a target. You know, they talk about a hitting a moving target, he could hit a target while moving while running like super fast. Alright, so that's why he was very talented. His uncle by the name of I'm in Canada, Julian Shia Iran, he was a poet.
So some of the narrations mentioned that he started saying chanting some poetry and then the Sahaba started to say it along with him and the process of approved seminarians mentioned that the Protestants have called him he was a Muslim, the process and called him and he said that Why don't you say something to motivate the troops? Right? He knew he was a poet and he said, Why don't you say some words that will motivate the troops? So in either case, either the promises that he said it and the promises I'm approved, or the Prophet says I'm requested him to do so. And the words that he said, were la Houma, la Santa Marta, Dana. Well, at the Santa Clara wala Selena fullfilled Frieda
and laka mattina weatherbeaten akadama in Latina, one tn Sakina Santa Lena in either si Habana. avena will be sia, hey, Elena. Basically, it translates roughly as that if it was not for you, Oh Allah, we would not have been guided. Nor we would have ever known to give charity Norwood even ever known to pray. So please forgive us so long as we continue to strive in your way and establish our feet in the battlefield. If we end up meeting the enemy, descend down peace and tranquility upon us. And when they call us out, and trying to intimidate us, we refuse to be intimidated. But when we call them out, then they run looking for cover they go running for cover. So he started saying these
words and all the Sahaba started to you know, chant this along with after him and the prophecy that son when he heard it, he was so pleased with just you know, the spirit not just what he was saying, but I will use motivating everyone and getting everyone into the right mindset in the spirit. The prophets a lot of them said yahama Lago, may God send His mercy upon that man may Allah bless that man. Right and Omar Adi Allahu taala. On one narration, he says that what Jabba Tiana B Allah, Lola intermed, m de nada, not be he that O Messenger of Allah May Allah accept your do offer him meaning of course Allah has accepted your offer him he's a very meaning that saying it almost as a source of
like admiring him. Wow, how amazing is that the prophet of God makes dua for blessing and mercy upon that individual. And then they said that old messenger of Allah, thank you for approving of what he did and allowing us to benefit from this because they said it's motivating everyone and inspiring everyone.
And we will come back to talk about Ahmed bin acquah in just a moment in Sharla. So, after they arrive at the place of labor,
the the southern narrations basically mentioned So first and foremost when they arrive at the place of labor, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam lined up the companions he lined up the Sahaba brought your loved one home, and then the prophets a lot of them said the full
meaning that repeat after me right the prophets a lot he said I'm told them stop lineup pay attention, and meaning engage in this drama and supplication with me, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made the following dua and this is narrated by many of the scholars of Sierra like him in his heart can be happy, and others where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said Allahumma rapa sama what is cemetery Rama, Atlanta or LA You are the master of the heavens and the seven heavens and everything that the seven heavens they cover. What are the in a cemetery Rama calella and voila, you are the creator, the Sustainer the master the Lord of the seven Earths and
everything that they contain. What Pasha tiene, la Atlanta and our la you are even the Lord in the master of the shale theme.
The Satan's the devils, those who tried to dissuade people from you
and everyone that they tried to lead astray you are their Lord and Master and sustainer as well. And then he said for in nanus Luca Hara had the Hilaria. Well, hey, Ronnie. Well, hey, Ron Murphy, ha, no allow we ask you, we beseech you, we ask you for the good of this town. For the good of the people who live in this
town and for the good of everything that is in this town. And then he goes on to say that when are they becoming very heavy Laconia, we take refuge with you from the evil of this town with Shadi Alia, from the evil of the people of this town, which are the mafia, and from the evil of everything this town contains the mu Bismillah Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, then he told the Sahaba now proceed forward with the name of Allah, who is a Rahmani Raheem, they abandon the merciful The constantly benevolence. So this was the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
From that point on forward now, and has been Mallika, the Allahu taala. And who narrates in a number of different iterations, that when the prophets a lot, he said would arrive whenever we went to go face off against an enemy. And we arrived at nighttime the process and would never attack at night, he would wait until the morning, so that there was an opportunity to converse with the people and to see if the people would accept Islam. And we're going to talk about that a little bit further the process and we'll clarify this in just a moment, we'll talk about that. But he would first want to present Islam and see if the people would accept this song that was the first primary and the most
And if they would refuse and reject, disarm and maintain their opposition to Islam and the prophets, Allah decem then at that time, they would engage with the people.
So they arrived in them at nighttime and they waited until the morning and they went in the morning time and they lined up the troops. Now, many of the, you know people have favored when they went out some of the people that used to work on the outskirts of labor, right. They came out in the morning time and they saw this army of the Muslims there. And when they saw them, they ran back towards labor. Screaming hamedan well homies ma who write Muhammad and his army is your homies basically refers to an army because they would divide the army into five portions. There would be the portion in the middle. There will be the main Munna de Mesa, right, the right flank, the left flank, there
would be the Mk Padma Padma to Jason Mahara to the front side of the army in the backseat of the army. So that's how they would kind of organize an army so it would be called homies. So they said Mohammed and his army is here. And they ran back for the blue Robin. They ran back to haber screaming, and they went into haber. And everyone went into the biggest fortress of labor, and they locked themselves up in the fortress. And when the profits a lot of them saw this, the prophet SAW said him said Allahu Akbar, hurry, but hey, but that Allah is there, you know, Allah is greater than everything and anything. haber has now decided its fate and it will meet its Doom in Iran isn't that
bizarre hottie Omen fissara Saba Herman, during the prophets, a lot of him invoking and I have the Quran said that when we arrive at the gates of the fortress of a people, then their time has come very, very near.
So they laid siege to the people of haven into the fortress of labor. Now, when they laid siege to the fortress of hubbub, it was a huge fortress. And it was very difficult then. So the narrations mentioned that they spent a number of days out there. Now remember, we already talked about and that's why I said this is going to come up again, we had already talked about the fact that the Muslims were still overwhelmingly in very difficult economic and financial circumstances, right, they still didn't have a lot of money and a lot of food and supplies and things of that nature. So they didn't have a lot of food and supplies with them. They and we talked about it that on the way
there, they just had to eat like this, they had to warm up that water, put some of that granola and that oatmeal that mix in there and just drink it or eat it. Right. And so that was their situation, very quickly, they started to run out of their food supplies. So the generations actually mentioned that
the that there was very severe kind of hunger and starvation that started to occur amongst the Muslim ranks. Right. And not only that, but there's another narration which also kind of alludes to this fact of the simplicity of the Muslim army.
The simplicity many people didn't have weapons some people had like very small, you know, swords and the smaller swords were because they couldn't make larger swords. They didn't have enough you know, iron to basically make larger sword so they had small swords, right? Well, we would almost consider like a dagger or large knife. We probably have knives in our kitchen that are as long as we're as big as some of the swords that they had to fight with. Right some didn't even have like very, you know, proper clothing. They were just barely covered with like, patches and rips and tears in their clothing. And, and it's been Mallika, the Allahu taala. And when the narration mentions that
What kind of a man was the prophets a lot he sent him. He says your Odin Murray's he used to go and visit the ill and the sick. Yes barrows. Jenna is the prophets a lot he some would accompany the burial of every person who passed away in his community. That's the type of leader he was, will Yuji Buddha with him Luke, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would, you know, accept the invitation of anyone in the community who invited him, even if a slave even if a slave invited the prophets allowed them to sit and eat a couple of dates with him the process and would go to honor this person and accept their invitation. We had a couple of Hema and the prophets a lot, he said would write a
donkey, very simple animal. Right? what's considered a very simple ride. And then he goes on to say that what kind of yonekura web one liter Allah, Mr.
Veoma haber, Allah Ma. there on the day of binuclear, ADA, the processor was riding a donkey.
On the day of the banana D. He was riding a donkey.
At the time, at the bottom of paper, the processor was riding a donkey. Right? So that shows the simplicity of the process. I'm in the Muslim army. So they're going through all of this, they're laying siege to the fortress of haber. They're running out of food, very difficult circumstances. And in the middle of this, as the Sahaba, are starting to get to a place where things are very difficult. They're kind of at their, at the end of their wits, if you will, right, things are becoming very, very difficult, almost intolerable, at this time. Now through the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They are now going to
be blessed with a miraculous victory. Before we talk about that victory, I live in every tiny bit of the Allahu taala and who if i if i
i want to mention, I lead at the Allahu taala and who talks about his story and settlements of Aqua also mentioned this in the narration of Bahati that originally when they left for the Battle of haber, I live in Amitabh radi Allahu taala. And who had stayed back in Medina. Initially, when the army departed earlier, the Allahu talanoa had stayed back in Medina, to tend to some things, right family issues and things like that.
But then, I read the Allahu taala, who also had mentioned that earlier, the Allahu taala was also very sick, he was very ill, he had come down with a fever, his eyes, like he had an infection in both of his eyes. And so because of that he couldn't even see clearly and traveling would aggravate it because of the sand and the dust. Everything getting into the eye would aggravate it. So actually, one of the remedies for this type of sickness was to not travel. But a little the Allahu taala No, after they departed the next day or so he can assess himself and a 200 for an interview somalisa
I would stay back behind the Prophet somalisa No, no, no, unacceptable. That's just unacceptable. That's how this works. So he leaves the city of Medina and eventually joins up with the prophets a lot of similar Muslim army. And he gets there a couple of days after they've gotten there. They've been laying siege to the people of clay, but so he gets there at night. That same night, the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, the Muslims for a few days, I've been trying to make advances against the fortress of labor, and they've been repelled every single time. So the night that same night that Allah The Allahu taala, who arrives in the encampment of labor, the process of makes a proclamation,
he says, again, our raw data that I will give the flag. Right, the standard. I will give that to someone tomorrow. Roger loon you hibou you hibou la guerra, Zulu
man whom align His Messenger have love for it's one thing to say your HIPAA law, how Rasulullah who he I will give it to a man who loves God in His messenger of the Sahaba love God in His Messenger, but he says I will give it to a man whom I lent his messenger love. And then he says, use Allah He and God will grant us a miraculous victory at the hands of this individual.
So the Sahaba say so much of the lockwashers Fernando not
everybody wanted to be that particular individual. Some of the other narrations. There's many many narrations which mentioned the same thing.
They say forgotten last year do Kunal a letter home. People spent the night restless, tossing and turning, discussing whispering who's it going to be? Could it be him? Could it be me? Could it be you right at your home?
Ha ha, who will be given the standard display?
And all night long people kept discussing this. Finally in the morning, after the morning prayer, everyone huddled around the profits a lot exam, eager to see who this person would be. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, a gnarly you know, Vitaly, where is the alley?
Where is it?
So there's somebody pointed him out and they said, Who am I so la here he is, yes, Jackie, I know he. But he's very sick and ill and both of his eyes were like infected and swollen up and really in bad condition, like you couldn't even see clearly.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam calls him and he says, Come close, come close. And he was kind of staying away because typically the etiquette was that it was considered to be like infectious, so you kind of keep your distance from people. And the person says, No, come close. And then the Prophet sallallahu Allah who said to me makes dua
and he then apply some of his saliva in his hands, and he rubs his hands together.
And then he places his hands on the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala radi Allahu taala
and the narration mentions that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam removed his hands, the eyes of Allah the Allahu talana had been completely healed. God Allah couldn't be here.
It was as if he had never even been ill. It was not then he started to recover, or he started to get better. Or it was like a painkiller, or any gum. No, no, it was like there was nothing ever wrong. There were no signs, right? He had been like, you know, tearing the watering, like his eyes had been watering for days. He had been itching them and scratching them and rubbing them so it's his face was red. But once the processor removed his hands, everything was done.
And then the profits a lot of them handed him the standard, the flag.
Now I leave at the Allahu telefonu This is the conversation I was telling you about earlier the Allahu taala and who says yeah Rasul Allah,
Who katella whom Hakuna Messina
Shall I wage war against them? until they become just like us? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says on foot. aleris Licata Tenzin bisazza him
follow right the course of action like follow the game plan until you arrived at the gates
Summa oder a woman lol Islam and then call them to Islam will be won't be my big bow legged man. How can Nikita Allah Fie. And tell them
what Allah subhanaw taala demands of them, meaning, talk to them, convince them to have a relationship with Allah and what they owe to Allah subhanaw taala for lucky and then not only that, but then he motivates him. He inspires him. He encourages him.
Right then and this is the part I want to emphasize that the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam is not saying call them to Islam like offer a disclaimer
accept Islam or you will be destroyed and then that's it then then begin the war. Right like you're not just getting a megaphone and saying hey, become Muslim. No, alright, let's go. That's no this is not a disclaimer. But talk to them, convince them
and then he says, Yeah, I Li for lucky. I swear to Allah the prophets of Salaam takes an oath now as the Allahu because you learn why even
if God was to guide through you, even one singular individual and what's very interesting about the Arabic language that the process of them uses radziwill and means one man means one person, but he says Julian widen the word Hayden is unnecessary, or Julian means one in Arabic, or Julian means one Roger Lang to modulate to the jollys. plural. Ra jhulan means one. Roger Lanois Hayden, this is done for emphasis when you're trying to say even one, even one singular individual, right? He says, hey, look, I'm in an akuna Nakamura Nam. He says this is better for you than if you were to have, you know, some of the best wealth in the world. He mentioned red cheek camels, which was basically an
expression in Arabic Meaning, it doesn't matter if you would conquer these people, and you would achieve the greatest victory and you would, you know, you would acquire more spoils of war than anyone has ever seen. All of that is irrelevant.
If one person can be brought to a law, one person can be guided
Islam. So he's inspiring and make a sincere effort to bring them closer to Allah and closer to Islam.
So, at this particular time,
I lead on the Allahu taala. And we proceed forward. One other thing that I want to mention here kind of not it's not really tangential, but I want to mention here as a detail, there's a famous narration that is found in the Sahih Muslim, Imam nawawi has also placed it in his out of Bahrain. And this particular Hadith is a source of a lot of discussion amongst people today, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says it's an authentic narration, that katell whom had a shadow Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Mohammed Abu rasuluh fader falou Delica mini fader falou Danica cut the man or woman Kadima, whom Allah, Allah be happy hour hi Sabu Allah logging,
that the Prophet Alayhi Salam says that fight them, until they accept that there is that they bear witness and testimony that there is no one worthy of worship except for Allah. And that Muhammad is the saving the Messenger of Allah. And if they do that, then they have protected their lives and their their properties. And their ultimate reckoning is with God. Okay. So the reason why I bring this up is that this is the, this is the subject of a lot of conversation. Because this is brought up a lot of times by Unfortunately, some Muslims, but this is oftentimes brought up by a lot of non Muslims as well, to point to the fact that Islam
is not practical, or Islam is irreconcilable with modern day life in society, that Islam cannot coexist with other religions and other faiths. That might not Muslims, as a minority population, in this country or anywhere else in the world are problematic by nature. people claim them, because they point to a hadith like that saying that it's saying, you have to fight people, you have to wage war against them, unless until they become Muslim. Otherwise, it's just constant war. There's either war, everybody become Muslim, there's no other third option, there's no in between.
Right, and they point to a hadith like this. And the reason why I bring it up here is because the havilah Muslim, the center of human being happy, the Sierra of urbanists, half of ebony Sham of urban Cathedral, and many, many other references, all clearly establish that the prophets, a lot of them issued this as a directive at the Battle of HyperX. That this was not set out of context. This was not some general object directive, like establishing prayer, this was said specifically in the context of the Battle of labor, that this was to be done in a battle, that this is not apply outside of a battlefield.
Right. So that's very, very important. And my point is, my purpose is to point out that every text has a context. And without the context, people are lost within the text. People don't know what to do with the text. All right, so that's very important to note here.
Nevertheless, as a leader, the Allahu taala, on who he approaches the gates, at that particular time, the people of caber, who have also tired at this point of the siege, they send, they opened the gates,
and they send out a warrior, at that particular time, who was known as
Motor hub, was one of the greatest warriors that they had. He was known as the greatest warrior of labor. So they sent out madhhab. And he basically goes out there and he proclaims, he calls for a challenger man, you bodies, Rooney,
who will come and face me.
And the narration mentions that he was wearing a helmet. Okay, he was wearing a helmet. And in that helmet, there was a big like a gemstone that was placed at the head of the helmet. Right. So it was very ornate. It was very elaborate. It was very flashy, and he's wearing this helmet, and he comes out there and he says, who will challenge me? Now I forgot to describe a leader the Allahu taala and who the narration describes as a leader of the Allahu taala, who was wearing like a robe or a cloak. And the robe that I did or the Allahu talana was wearing was like a dark red like almost like a maroon.
So it's very breathtaking in and of itself.
And the Prophet seldom gives him the standard the flag. So I leave out the Allahu taala new plants the flag and he goes out there
With his sword and he says that I will fight you.
So when Mar hub looks at Ali radi Allahu taala and who this was a tactic at that time, he tries to intimidate and erode the Allahu taala and when he says cut the ultimate Hey barwani marhaba shakin Salahi battalion mucho Rabu eleuthero Akbar Allah tala hubzu Jamaica and sola till mahalo. He says that haber. Like he in some narrations mentioned that he reaches down and he picks up dirt off the ground and he owes the earth the ground of haber knows that I am not a hub.
The ground of cable Hey but knows that I am
wearing my armor that I am a very experienced warrior. Like I have meaning these are all expressions I'm literally translating but are translate properly. What he's saying is that this earth this dirt knows who I am. Because I have shed the blood of many men on this earth on this dirt.
I have soaked this ground with the blood of men.
When I step out into the battlefield, lions come to cheer me on right that again. That's a literal translation. What it means is the greatest warriors lay down their weapons and spectate. When I step into the battlefield, people are left breathless when they witness me in the battlefield,
and they await to witness who will be my latest conquest. Okay, so he says this, I leader, the Allahu taala and who steps forward and he says, and then ladies submit Naomi haidara khalessi Harbhajan shady lucasmoura Aki lucam, bizarre ik del caylus Sandara which again, I can literally translate, but I'll translate properly. I lira the Allahu taala and who says I am the man that when I was born, my mother looked at me for the very first time and called me lion.
Right? And then he says that I am a lion, who rules many jungles not one jungle but many jungles. Alright, meaning that other warriors bowed down in front of me meaning other warriors, they lay down their weapons in front of me. And they surrender when they see me. I don't even fight people. I just go out and people surrender. And he says that you are about to taste my wrath. I will teach you a lesson today.
Right. And the narration goes on to mention that they both tried to strike each other photographer darbepoetin. They basically both strike and there they kind of like, you know, they cross swords. And as they both strike and they clashed or swords, or lead or the Allahu taala, who is known for his movement. It wasn't just like this brute strength on either the olana was a very skillful agile fighter. So he was known for his moves. So either as a class swords elite or the Allahu taala, like almost like spins off of that with the move with the momentum of these spins off of that brings his sword around and strike smarthub on the head, and the narration mentions that he strikes him not as
on the head and on the helmet but exactly on the the the the the gemstone that he had fixed on his helmet. He strikes him there, his sword breaks through the gemstone cracks through the helmet, goes through his skull, until it finally gets caught in like his chest.
Alright, so basically, I mean, he just pretty much finishes the guy. Right. And so I think you know, the Allahu Jelani just dismisses this particular individual,
that in and of itself is such a huge like moral like blow. It's such a huge blow to the morale of the, of the people of labor, that they're they've practically surrendered at this point. But some of the narrations mentioned that after Ollie radi Allahu taala and who dispatches motor hub, then at that particular time it miss half mentioned Marie hubbs brother, who was also considered a warrior of clay, but his name was Yazid. He comes out
and he says, honey moberries Is there anyone that will fight me?
So as zubaid debated mula awam, right, the cousin of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was the son of the art of the process that I'm Sophia right? The war
You're on to the profits a lot he setup, right? So Zubaydah blah, blah, he steps out. He says, Let me go and fight him. Sophia, the entrepreneur process has some had accompanied the Muslims to haber. And the reason why she would accompany is that she used to come as like a nurse. Alright, so she had a company the army has like a nurse.
So she says, because this man might have was huge. And his brother Yes. And he was like a giant like a mountain of a man. And so when she sees him, she she's very she's a brave woman. But she says as a mother, she's a mother. Right? She says that you have to evening Rasul Allah. He will kill my son on messenger of Allah and the prophets, a lot of assumptions, but even Luca, yaku, insha Allah, Allah, your son will kill him.
And the same thing happens they go out to fights and Zubaydah radi Allahu taala who is able to strike down this warrior Yes, it and later on, somebody would tell him. We're lucky in Ghana. See Fukuyama in the Solomon. One day later, you know how people talk about like war stories. They were like, Man, you were on fire that day. Right your story your sword was made a fire that day. It was unstoppable. And he said Well, lucky Montana siding man. He's I don't know what you're talking about. My sword was not on fire. My sword felt like ice will give me a crossbow. He said I could. I felt like I couldn't even handle my sword. That day. The victory was solely because of the death of
the Prophet. So God gave truth. God realized the words of the messenger salon's him. When the prophets a lot of them said that Zubaydah will win. When he told my mother Your son will win. That was the only thing that carried me to victory. I felt like I was dragging my sword. I was overwhelmed. But that victory was solely due to the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
At that point, the Muslim forces the people of Hayward feel like they've been defeated like they are repelled backwards and they're overwhelmed. And at that point, the Muslim forces they push forward
and as the Muslim forces they push forward then at that particular time, there's an operation that is very well known even as hot mentions his narration that as a Muslim forces are pushing now into the fortress of labor. Now, the the enemy had like the vantage point in a strategic position, they were all posted along the top of the fortress and now they could shoot down and it's very dangerous for the Muslims that were initially entering into the fortress. So they said what do we do? So that's when it mentions that I live in a Vitaly radi Allahu taala and who he fatawa iligan babble huizen leader the Allahu taala who ripped the door the gate of the fortress off of its hinges and he
picked it up and he lifted it up in front of him and started to walk forward with an entire gate as a shield for terrassa v NFC and he used it as a shield for me as alpha yet he were Who are you?
And he kept pushing forward with it until all the Muslim forces came in the army came in and was able to take over the fortress. So my god Danny just kind of like tossed it aside like I you know, you just pick up something and just, like toss it aside.
And then the narrator of the Hadith, abou raffia Mola, Mola
Mola homie cinema, he act or excuse me, raffia monado chalet salatu salam, you was a freed slave of the prophesy centum he says for Nakamura he never in Mariya savasana tamina. Whom natural to Allah and luckily by that, that radical Bob, for Mr. Donna nakivo, who he says you then after the battle me and seven more men, fighters, me and seven more men, we went to not lift the door to just flip it over. We need to get it out of the way we just needed to kind of flip it over. And me and seven more people, eight men went and tried to flip the door over and we were there for like 30 minutes, like fighting with this gate and we couldn't flip it and I needed the Allahu taala No, carried it around
and then toss it aside like that.
And this was again, this is why I said miraculous. Right? Not that we doubt that. You know the Allahu talana was super strong, of course made us a very strong man. But there was something otherworldly going on. This was Miss Nussle min Allah. Well, first off, I mean, this is a victory from Allah subhana wa Tada. So there's a lot more to talk about here within the conclusion of the Battle of clay but, but I will go ahead and stop and pause here because it's time for Salatin Asia. So inshallah we'll proceed we'll continue in the following session. May Allah subhanaw taala. Grant us all the ability to practice everything that we said and heard some Hanalei, we have the 700
Colombia have the pleasure of Allah, Allah, Allah
