from the lower salatu salam ala rasulillah who Allah and he was he admiring
Chela, continuing with our study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam siracha number we are the prophetic biography.
We left off in the previous session towards the beginning of the eighth year of higit. On the eighth year of the prophets, a lot of these systems residents in the city of Medina so we talked about some of the events that unfolded there in the early part of the eighth year, most notably, I've been asked for the Allahu taala and who are thumbin bentyl hora de Allahu taala, and who Khalid Molitor, the Allahu taala anhu them basically coming to Medina and accepting Islam. And what we're going to be talking about today is something that occurred a little bit towards the middle of the year, basically, even as half in many other scholars of the Sierra. They mentioned that in the month of
June model oola. In the month of July, doula Muharram sofar, the two months of robbia and then jumada Lula in the fifth month of the eighth year of hegira. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received news of the Roman the Roman Empire, putting together deploying an army of 100,000 soldiers. And not only that, but there were some of the tribes, the Arab tribes within the region, some of the mushnik Arab tribes within that northern region that bordered with Bella Sham, that they were also they had amassed and recruited another 50,000 fighters from those Arab tribes. So even as half evocati many other scholars of the Sierra, they bring together all the different narration some
narrations mentioned 100,000, some mentioned 200,000. But even Kathy Rahim, Allahu taala says that the smallest number that has been related in the books of history in the books of cedaw is 150,000 soldiers 100,000 from the Roman Empire, professional soldiers, if you will, and 50,000 recruits from the Arab tribes of that region. So the profits a lot of these in receives this news, this intelligence of this gigantic army, amassing and basically gathering together with is with its eyes sets on Medina, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at that time to respond to this very serious threat. He recruited about 3000 Sahaba 3000 Muslims, and after recruiting them together, the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them to basically prepare, put together their supplies, and basically prepare to embark on this journey to travel to the north, to face off to cut off this army and then engage this army if necessary. Now, we'll talk more about exactly what transpires within the battlefield itself. But this battle, it's basically referred to as what to motor motor. Now, a couple of technical things I'd like to explain why is it called
it's called Motown because of the place where the battle ended up occurring. That was the name of the town that was the name of the Korea was Motown. That's where the battle actually occurred. Even though the Muslims when they first arrived, they had encamped at another place in the Roman army heading Captain another place, but by the time they met in the battlefield, they faced off that battle actually occurred at a place called Mata and that's why it's known as the Battle of motor. Secondly, the word that the title for this event from the life of the prophets a lot ism is very popularly as well, because we're to motor. Now, if somebody might recall from just their own study
or something else they've, you know, maybe having attended
cede our class. But particularly in this class, if you go back in the series, we had talked about the technical terminology when it comes to the science, the study of the prophetic biography, and we had studied two terms. In particular, the first word was has one, the second word was SETI. Yeah. The word of azwan. In the Arabic language, or in the science of theater, particularly, excuse me, it refers to an expedition, a campaign in which the prophets a lot of a sudden himself, took part. He accompanied the Muslims and went himself. The second word that we studied was SETI. Yeah. The word SETI Yeah, basis. saraya is a plural of it, is when the prophets, a lot of them sent out the Sahaba
on an expedition or a campaign. Now, this particular expedition, the prophets, a lot of these him himself did not go to Mota. But he sent the Sahaba there. So why is it popularly known as well. So this is just a matter of the fact that the word of azwan does have a general linguistic meaning, any expedition and campaign, particularly one that involves actual engagement, actual fighting, can be referred to as well. So it just popularly became known. It became, as they say, kind of common on the tongues of the people as well. And that's why became popularly known as word to motor. That's the first thing. The second thing is, it was from the noble prophetic practice, it was from the
practice of the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasallam, that he would accompany even if he was not going on the journey himself, he would accompany the Muslims outside of Mecca. And then he would also excuse me, outside of Medina, to send them off. And when they returned back home, he would himself leave Medina go outside of Medina a little bit to receive them back. So by virtue of that, they the profits, a lot of them would be with them for at least a very small part of the journey, and thereby validating the usage of the word as well.
Nevertheless, this is the Haswell motor, that's the first thing. Now, this particular event is notable for a few different reasons. And there are a few different very noteworthy aspects or portions or stories from this particular event. So inshallah I'll be highlighting those particular details.
The first thing that is very notable for is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he appointed leaders for this particular expedition, this campaign. And the prophets, a lot of these him appointed three leaders in particular, three people who were in charge of the army. And this is very notable for a particular reason. The first of them, and there are multiple narrations that talk about this. The first amongst them was they even had etha radi Allahu taala and who now they've been Hadith are the Allahu taala and who was like the adopted son of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He's somebody that we've talked about, very notably previously.
And we've talked about his biography extensively in the beginning, towards the early part of the CETA because he was one of the first three or four people to accept Islam. He was amongst the first for people to accept Islam because he was being raised within the home of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So they've been had a thought or the Allahu talana was very beloved to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and the prophets a lot easier, met a lot of faith and a lot of trust in him. He was appointed as the leader of the army, the prophets a lot of them commented, he said zaytoven ohata amido nuts for in Goodfellas Aidan, for Java ignore Vitaly even though I've beaten him. The
prophets a lot a subset if say this to fall in battle, then it shall be john Feldmann to be taught him who was the first cousin of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. All right. and gentlemen, Vitaly, who was the first cousin of the prophets a lot. He said, I'm, and very extremely beloved to the prophets a lot a set of gentlemen, we call him who we've talked about previously, as well, because he was amongst the first early converts to Islam, and him and his wife as my being to replace they had migrated. They had performed the first migration to Habesha to East Africa to Abyssinia. And he was basically appointed by the prophet sallallahu Sallam to be the caretaker to be
the leader, the Imam of the community there in Abyssinia. And he had a very close personal relationship with an adjustment that we have highlighted before. And we've talked about previously. So when he returned back in fact, the profits a lot of these had such love for him, that when he returned back, and at the time of labor, the profits a lot of them said that la dairy I do not know if I'm more happy by the victory of labor or by bikuni. java, or by Java returning back to us. And the profits. A lot of recent very famously commented in the hadith of Bahati about john Fetterman, and we thought him as bad
Hello wahoo loopy. You most resemble me not only in my features in my looks, but also in my character and my conduct and there's no greater compliment that can be given to anyone that was Jonathan Vitali Brody Allahu taala. And who and the process of matter a lot of love for him. He was about 10 years senior to his younger brother, I live in a tiny bit of the Allahu taala. So he was Ali's older brother about 10 years his senior.
So the prophets Allah said is a this default and it shall be Java, who will lead the army and then the prophets. A lot of them said for input to Java for Abdullah ignore Ah ha. If Jaffer falls, then it will be Abdullah bin waha who is Abdullah bin a while we've also talked about him previously, he was one of the leaders of the unsought he was a Medina and Muslim and unsightly Muslim from the tribe of huzar. Raj. He was amongst the early Medina and to accept Islam. He had attended the first aka the first time where the Medina Muslims gave the oath of allegiance to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was appointed by the prophets a lot a Salaam, Minh and nakaba from amongst
the 12 leaders of the community, the early community of Muslims in Medina and he was somebody the prophets Allah decent relied upon trusted, very, very, the prophet system relied upon him frequently and have a lot of trust placed within him. In fact, Job done up in the white hat or the Allahu taala and who was a poet and he was also known as a warrior. He was a warrior poet, a very gifted man, a very trustworthy leader of his people, a man of great integrity. And he had attended, he had participated in the Battle of button, the Battle of the Battle of the trench, the Battle of haber, in every single expedition he had been by the side of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So the
prophets Allah the sun then says for input Elijah Harun for Abdullah if Jonathan falls, then it shall be up delivering the VA who needs the army
now this is something that's very notable part of this particular events the process I'm appointed these three people and then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that for input into Abdullah bin raha if Abdullah bin falls fully Muslim una bainham Rajan and foliage Allahu Allah him, then the Muslim should consultant assign somebody to lead them and then that person will be their leader going forward for the rest of the battle.
Now, there was a man alacrity mentioned there was a man by the name of Norman even full office, and no man, even full office who was a Jewish man, and he was a very knowledgeable member of the Jewish tribes. I consider him like a rabbi if you will. And he heard the prophets a lot he's making these comments. So after he made these comments, Norman he said about him in contain a vegan fellow some made some and some Mater kalila and oka Thielen who Cebu Jamie and he says, Oh, I will pass him referring to the Prophet salami, Sam Yeah, Mohammed. He says that if you are truly a prophet of God, then everyone that you have named whether they be a few or many, all of them will fall into battle
in the MBM in benissa. Allah cannot assemble a radula allomi for carlu. In uzima, Fulani Fudan furnace follow some mo may attend Cebu Jamia and he said in the in the amongst the prophets of Israel in the prophets of the past our prophets, he said that amongst them, if they would appoint a person, as in charge of an army, and if after that, they would say and if this person is to fall, then it will be so and so. And then even if they named 100 people after that, even if they named 100 people after that, they would all fall into battle.
This is no tip about the prophesizing ability of the prophets and messengers of the past. So then the same verse in the prophets, a lot of them did not comment on this person's you know, commentary, the process of did not say anything. So then this person goes to Zaid bin Hadith and he says, Arrowhead for inegalitarian evidence. He says, prepare, because you will not be coming back home in Ghana, Mohammed donabedian. If Mohammed is truly a prophet, you will not return back home. And they've been hiding it that says what? He didn't freak out. He didn't fret. He didn't say oh my god, what are you saying? He said, I just had to under hoonah beagan saw the FUBAR one
I don't know about the first part of your commentary.
But what I can tell you is I testify fully to the fact that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi. wasallam is an OB he is a prophet, he is truthful, and he is righteous. What he says is true. There's no doubt about that. As for your commentary, I don't know.
So that's the first thing that is particularly
Known for now after the profits a lot of these have appointed these three leaders and basically told the army prepare and send them on their way.
When people were when this army was setting out and people were bidding them Farewell, I'm delivering the Allahu taala and who he started to cry.
And somebody asked him why Utica blah ha, Why do you cry? He says I'm our lucky might be dunya wa sababa can become. He said I don't cry because of my love of my material things nor do I cry because I'm gonna miss you people that much. All right, he says, Well I can sit here until July salami Sam Jaco is a minty tabula.
I heard the Messenger of God reciting a verse from the Quran from the book of God. Yes, Goofy, huh now that talks about the fire of hell. In which Allah says what Eman Camilla? Why do you do that each and every single one of you will pass the fire of hell will cross over the fire of hell. Each and every single one of you, Ghana, Allah Arabic headsman mercadien This is a firm promise from God, from Allah from your Lord, from your master, from Allah, from your rub, that each and every single one of you will pass the fire of hell. And then he goes on to say for less to a degree gainfully be suddenly burden wudi I don't know what's going to happen to me. When it comes time for that crossing
that will I make it or not? Will I succumb to the fire of how will I be saved and salvaged and rescued is a companion of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam a man who put his hand in the hands of the prophets a lot a salah
and said, I give you my oath of allegiance and the promises I'm accepted his oath of allegiance and said, I trust you to be a leader in my community. Such a man
is the man about whom the prophets a lot. He said them play so much trust and he puts him in charge of an army. This is a person who used to go to the masjid of the prophets a lot he set up and tell people I mean, I don't know. So let us sit for a few moments and refresh our faith in our eemaan talk about God. remember Allah subhanho wa Taala
like this is such a person. But look at the awareness the cognizance of spirituality the reality
where he says that Allah is saying in the Quran, Wayman, Camila worry to her. Each and every single one of you have to cross Hell, I don't know if I'll make it or not, I'll make it across or not.
You know, think about it in worldly terms.
How if somebody says, You know what, I'm sad, I got it made my future said, I'm financially secure and independent or have nothing to worry about. We say, well, that's not a healthy attitude. You should be vigilant. You never know when the market could turn. We call such a person very aware, very cognizant, very intelligent. But we're so heedless, so asleep. So numb spiritually when it comes to the hereafter that such a thought would never even crossed our mind. And he says that I'm really worried about my fate.
And so the narration basically goes on,
to talk about the fact that the army departs, Thursday evening,
Thursday afternoon, the prophets a lot, he said them, sent them out, they depart.
And they get, you know, the profits, a lot of them would do this kind of send them out a little bit later, sometimes in the day even. so that they could just go ahead and just leave, just depart. Even if by the time they got together was afternoon time, where it makes sense. They can travel a lot at night, especially an army that's large. So instead of just staying one more extra night, he would just have them go ahead and just depart.
Just so that nobody would then second guess themselves, nobody would doubt nobody would get pulled back just depart. And they would go a little bit outside of Medina if that's what they could do. The professor would accompany them out. And they wouldn't camp outside of Medina little ways outside of Medina. But that was good enough. And then the next morning, they could get an early start on the day. So that's exactly what happens. Now it's Thursday. I'm still not going to work out or the Allahu taala Han who had a very fast horse he was known as having maybe the fastest horse in Medina.
So what happened was he decided not to leave Thursday evening.
He said let me stay,
not to spend another extra nights, you know, at home or whatever the case may be. The idea there was that Tomorrow's the day of Friday July.
I will praise you are with the profits alarmism, I will listen to his beautiful voice
and his timeless advice. I will attend the hotbar given by the prophets a lot, etc. One last thing
I will pray
Juma Friday behind him one last time.
I will see his beautiful face one last time.
And then my horses so fast plus one an army of 3000 people are traveling they traveled slower. My horses so fast I'll catch up with them. I'll spend Friday night with them. I'll catch up easily.
So he says the prophets a lot of them saw him.
On the day of Friday he saw him during the Juma prayer for Gemma I'm gonna be salada him for who
he prayed Juma with the prophecy sermon the process and saw him
Why Why did you stay back? Why mama NACA and Mrs. hubback what what prevented you from leaving with your, with your companions?
So he says to unusally American Juma?
Right I wanted to pray one less tomorrow with you and then I'll join up with them easily. Well, gentlemen, Mark, I want to pray Juma with your messenger of Allah, the prophets a lot of these him at that time said to him, like what you know Rohatyn feasability like a Lumina dunya. mafia
that one morning or one evening spent in the path of God serving the deen of Allah
is better than this whole world and whatever it contains another narration the prophets, a lot of them said to him, no un* them I have a lot of the Jimmy anma director had written that if you spent all the wealth in this earth, in charity, you would not attain the reward and the virtue that your companions attained by spending half a day more in the path of a loved that than you did
a profound lesson from the prophets a lot. And there's something very interesting here.
That there's the idea of personal spirituality. Now I want to talk about this very clearly. There's personal spirituality and then there is serving, the greater cause the community.
Now we have two extremes. One extreme will always lead to the other keep that in mind. The prophet SAW some worn disembodied thought into fleet, one extreme will lead to the other we have two extremes in our community, there are those who sacrifice serving the community for personal spirituality.
They don't serve the community. There's no focus on preaching and teaching. There's no focus on serving, rolling up your sleeves, getting out there helping people talking to people, serving people, caring for people, making this world a better place. What were the qualities of the prophets a lot of them that Khadija the Allahu taala and I mentioned tassilo Rahim, you're good to your family, you maintain family relations decrepid life,
you are hospitable to your guests.
That means you lift the downfall in up
taxi Wilma Doom, you feed those who can feed themselves, you take care of those who can't take care of themselves. What's your angel, Allah, He will help you always help in any good cause. So there are those who will sacrifice all of that neglect all of that, for the sake of some idea perceived individual personal spirituality.
hours upon hours of you know, personal individual worship, which it almost sounds kind of strange. It's like you're, you're criticizing someone for praying.
But if it comes at the expense of you're watching, if you're if you're ignoring the whole world burning down around you, while Mashallah you're enjoying you know, often, then yes, it's absolutely criticism, it's absolutely worthy of criticism
is very problematic.
But that also can result in that extreme leads to the opposite extreme. What is the opposite extreme, a complete neglect of any type of personal spiritual connection to Allah subhanho wa Taala for public service.
We're now I'm so invested into some particular public communal cause, that I don't even have any time for even my favorite. I'm neglectful of my friends that don't make any time to be able to open and read the Quran, the Book of Allah, I have no time for actual personal.
I haven't learned a single word of my dean of the front of the book of Allah, you know, in maybe years.
So that's also an extreme problem. Another problematic extreme, and the balance has always mattawa SATA. Right. The balance what's what we need is what's in the middle, where there is a fixed regimen of personal spirituality. But there is still a very a constant alertness, awareness of our communal responsibilities and obligations in serving of the community. serving of humanity is very, very important. But here, the profits alarmism is basically teaching us
There is a time and a place for everything.
When it's time to pray and pray that if I'm standing outside
now that's problematic. But when it's time to go out there and roll up your sleeves and do work now, if I'm in here praying now that's problematic, understanding the time and the place in the situation for everything.
That that's what the prophets Allah was teaching is a very valuable lesson here. Nevertheless,
the army departs, they get to the place like I had mentioned previously. Over there, they're faced with 150,000 soldiers, there are 3000 of them.
So they stopped there for two days. And they basically said, What do we do?
And they said, Maybe we should send a message back to the profits a lot a seller, they spent two nights camped out.
Maybe we should send a word back to the prophets, Allah, He said that these are the circumstances we're facing.
And maybe he can send reinforcements for us. Or maybe he'll tell us to go forward. Maybe you'll tell us to come back. Let's just further more consult with him.
Abdullah bin O'Hara de Allahu taala. And who, at that point in time, not that there was any problem with consulting the profits a lot. But what was also understood was, this was more of kind of like second guessing oneself, the profits a lot of these him had already talked about it very, very clearly what he expected of the Sahaba of the laguan. So at this particular time, I'm developing the Allahu Jelani motivates people and he say I call them all my people were lucky in the lottery to the Takara hoonah Lachey hora de Lune what you are now so afraid of is the thing that brought you out here in the first place. And that is a Shahada
making the ultimate sacrifice for what is right what you believe in what is true. What is correct.
Well, my no cartoon sob I didn't want to attend Malacca throat and we never stood our ground based off of our numbers or our strain through our mites. That's not why do we ever. That's not why we ever took a stand. Well, my nakatomi lobby has a dean, where we took a stand because of what we believed him under the acraman Allah who believe that God honored us with the truth with what is right, with fairness, with justice, with integrity, with honor with dignity. That's why we always stood for what we stood for bundler frontally who venema here.
So let's go now, because this story only ends in one of two ways. And both are good endings in motherhood, and my my Shahada, when either we
are able to bring the truth and justice and dignity to humanity, we overcome our enemies, or we lose our lives serving what we believe in, fighting for the cause that we believe in. So this only ends in a good way. So what are you so afraid of?
So at that point, people, they move forward. And basically, the Muslims go and face the enemy. And at that point in time, they face off, they meet the army, and they begin to fight them.
Now, as the fight here begins,
sometimes something very interesting happens.
One other thing I wanted to mention a coup d'etat, the Allahu taala and who he was there, he accompanied them on this particular journey. And he says that when we got to the battlefield when we said okay, let's go in we went and we faced off against this gigantic army in the battlefield we got close enough where we could see them or a Nirmala similarly
we saw you know what, we couldn't believe that he was Salah he will karate with the value will hurry with the hubby.
We saw that they were prepared and they were armed and they had weapons and they were wearing you know, shiny you know, armor and silk and just, you know, gold trimming on their armor.
Like we saw how elaborate this army was.
And he says, For buddy Abbasali. For a moment, I got kind of overwhelmed.
Like we would say our expression for Buddy call, but sorry. Our expression is that my jaw was kind of like my mouth was open my jaw like fell on the ground. Like, really, I had that look on my face.
And he says that fabric been Arkham Sabbath even Arkham rhodiola husana was a Senior Companion of the Allahu taala, who had just accepted Islam not too long ago.
But a Senior Companions haven't been Muslim for a very long time. From the early days. He saw the look on my face. He saw my mouth kind of open
So he said, Yeah Abba hora, Kanaka Taraji and kathira this is kind of close your mouth over data.
It's you You look like as if you've seen multiple armies. Now one army but multiple armies
bulten that's exactly what I'm looking at. If you look and you see
he says saboten Tessa Bora in a kilometre shadman aberdaron
you didn't attend bother with us.
You did not attend bother with us.
In London sir bill Capra.
We have never won because of our numbers.
We've never won because of our numbers.
So the battle starts now. One thing I wanted to mention as the battle Here begins.
There's another scene that's playing out back in Medina.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam comes out into the masjid. He sits down on the member, he tells Milan make an announcement
gathered to the people. And so the announcement they used to make together the people was a solid to Jamie Otto,
which basically was code for everybody get together in the machine.
A solid to Jamie Otto.
They made the call.
Everybody congregated in the machine. And the processor was sitting on the member
and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said that Allah has removed the distance of the land, like for me, and I can see them in the battlefield.
OSHA hidamari catacomb he says I see their battle
and the profits a lot the sum starts to tell them what's transpiring
in the battlefield
and the profits a lot is him as he begins to talk to them about what transpiring the battlefield.
The prophets a lot he said, um, says
Ciba zaidan, Zaid has fallen
and there's this and there's pain in the voice of the Prophet ceylonese for them.
Love them like a son.
And there's this audible like desis grown in the room.
They lost one of their older brothers.
And then the prophets a lot he said, um, says for Hama, Jaffa, Elisa.
Jaffer has picked up the flag
and Java Vitaly rhodiola. Catalano continued fighting valiantly.
And the narration specifically mentions that Java rhodiola kulanu finally got into a spot in the battlefield where he got surrounded by the enemy. And they came in at him
and they basically severed his right hand. They cut off his right hand.
And Jaffer, the Allahu taala and took the flag in his left hand. And then somebody came and cut off his left hand and he had the stubs of his arms that remained he grabbed the flag and hold it to his chest, and then they all collapsed in on him
until he finally fell.
After the battle, Abdullah bin Omar radi Allahu taala Anima was also at the battle. He says that I counted the wounds and I counted more than 50 wounds on Jennifer's body.
And this is the profits a lot. And when you relate that we'll see but Jaffa Jaffa has fallen.
The Sahaba say that the voice of the prophets or some quiver?
This was his brother, his cousin.
And the prophets, a lot of them felt the pain. And again, there was this audible just grown in the room. And then the process was quiet for a little bit. And everyone got worried. is Abdullah already gone? Has he already fallen from before? What's going to happen now? And the reason why the processor was a little quiet and silent. We go back to the battlefield. What happened was that Abdullah bin or waha, radi Allahu taala and who
he is he heard somebody calling his name using the battlefield, but he heard somebody calling his name.
Abdullah, where are you? We need you Jaffa has fallen.
And I'm delivering kawahara the Allahu talanji word was going to grab the flag, the banner
to leave the army.
He had a moment's hesitation, just
a little moment's hesitation.
And he caught himself and he said, well, what's this?
Why are you hesitating, and kind of spoke to himself in some couplets. They're related across
Some assumption E and F Su, Latins Ilana Lattanzi Lana Ola to Korean now.
He said to himself you will go
or you will regret not going in German NASA should do a Rhonda Molly Araki, Taka Hina Jana people have gone out into the battlefield
and he's kind of talking to himself why is it that you resist paradise that are less promised you khattala mcentee motema in hell anttila not fanfiction
said that you should submit to the will of Allah. Because remember that you are nothing but you were talking to himself as a human being that originally speaking, you were just a dirty drop of fluid.
A drop of filth,
and kind of motivate himself. And then he goes forward, picks up the banner, and then engages and then the profits all of a sudden says, For Asada, Abdullah Oliva, and there's like this audible sigh of relief in this room, and I'm delivering the Allahu taala. And he continues on fighting, until he finally falls as well. And the Prophet also mentioned, excuse me, that as he's going into the battlefield, after he's talking to himself, his cousin, his cousin was there in the battlefield comes up to him and he says, cousin, cousin, you haven't eaten something they're calling on, you're gonna have to go and lead you haven't eaten anything.
And so here eat something before you go out into the battlefield. Just that will give you the strength to fight to do what you got to do.
So he says that he takes the the piece of meat, there's a bone with meat on it, he takes it and he starts to eat it. And then he kind of thinks himself
what's going on out there and you're sitting here eating worried about your belly.
And then he just tosses it aside, and he runs into the battlefield. And he also finally falls and makes the ultimate sacrifice.
Now the prophets, a lot of them says we'll see. But Abdullah, he has also fallen.
And again, the prophets, a lot of them becomes quiet. And what's happening back in the battlefield, is that after I've delivered a false Sabbath been Arkham. Since he's a senior companion, he picks up the banner and he says, Okay, now who's going to lead us? Some some of the people are under say, you you go in? And he says,
My nav fairy? It's not my No, no, I'm not the person meant to lead. It's not me. So people they start talking Khalid bin Walid or the Allahu taala. I know we talked about Islam in the previous session. He was a very new convert to Islam. He had gone with the army. He's there keeping a very low profile, being very quiet, very humble, in spite of being a military mastermind. Maybe one of the greatest warriors of his generation, if not the greatest, keeping a very low profile, very humbled that I'm new to the religion, I'm new to the faith. I'm still learning my belief, and they realize Khalid is in their midst. And they said Khalid is you it's got to be you and try to resist.
And they say, no, it has to be you. So finally Khalid bin will either the Allahu taala angle, he takes the banner, and he leads the army.
And going back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
After the prophets a lot of Islam is quite for some time, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
By this time the narration mentions the narration of Bahati, the prophets. A lot of them says that when he said Zaid fell, then Jonathan fell, then Abdullah fell, by this time the eyes of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam are flowing with tears. Tears are streaming down his face, he lost three of the most beloved people to him. Tears are streaming down his face. And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says
that, aha, there is a phone mean to you, Phil.
There are a sword from the swords of God has now taken the banner. And that was Khalid bin will either the law Catalano and he takes the banner. And at this particular time, what he does being the military mastermind, the strategic mastermind that he is, he kind of regroups the entire army who is now scattered about. It almost looks kind of like a retreat. He kind of rides back off to the side and he calls everyone to him. And the entire Muslim army kind of like retreats, pulls out from the battlefield, gathers along with him onto the side, and then he regroups everyone. And this does two things. Number one, it helps everyone regroup. Number two, a lot of the enemy starts to think and
assume that Muslims are retreating, will have Buddha, the prophets a lot of them said war is this
Option strategy games.
And so now what happens because a lot of the army the enemy army starts to let their guard down thinking that Muslims are retreating, hollywood will lead regroups everyone then then he attacks from the side.
And the Muslims are able to actually tear through the army, dispersing the army splitting it up into different groups and the enemy army eventually retreats had that Fatah Allahu Allah, him Haditha Buhari and so no, Malik says, until Allah granted them victory, the enemy retreated.
Now, after all of this happens,
Muslims, they returned back to
Al Madina, munawwara they come back to Medina.
One of the narrations mentions that
some of the Muslims like they they sent a messenger ahead to kind of to Medina, head of the army that was coming back. They sent a messenger ahead to kind of give the news that they were coming back. Now the Muslims in Medina had witnesses miracle of the prophets, a lot of these I'm relaying to them everything as it occurred as it happened. When this messenger arrives back,
he arrives back to people asking him questions about what happened the battlefield he said, Wait a second, how do you know what happened in the battlefield? This is what the prophets Allah told us said that's, that's remarkable. And the Prophet he comes to the prophet SAW some of the profits a lot he said him says that he says before I give you the news of what happened, they said you already informed them over up in the process and said, let me tell you, and the process tells him step by step what happens and he confirms everything as a Prophet Solomon is narrating it. And the prophets Allah said Allah subhanaw taala allowed me to see what was unfolding in the battlefield.
But now that the army returns back I forgot to mention this as well. I apologize. But Holly been relieved. You know, we talked about like granted them the victory. In a hadith the Buhari Khalid been relieved of the Allahu taala No, he says, look at the Nakata heartfilia do a test to see if when he said on the day of motor I broke nine swords.
I broke nine swords. What that means is he fought so hard
that he broke nine towards fighting on the day of motor that was called New elite. Nevertheless, after Allah granted them the victory, they return back the profits a lot he said.
He goes outside of the city of Medina to welcome them back.
And as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
goes outside to welcome them into the city of Medina.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he
is welcoming them back. But many of the children
many of the children of those who had gone into battle, they have come outside to kind of welcome their brothers or fathers back, back home, and many had fallen during this particular time.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he tells his companions, radi Allahu taala on home. He says that
if Malou had the hill, oh Lord, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he tells the Sahaba radi Allahu taala on home that pick up these children who do a sybian pick up these children. And then he says Why are Tony even a Jaffa Hand me the son of Jaffa he was sitting on his right on his animal. He said Hand me this on a job for the older son of Jaffa Jaffa Bennett, we thought about the Allahu talanoa two sons, Abdullah and Mohammed bin Jaffa. So the older son was there Abdullah in Jaffa. He says Hand me the son of Jaffa. So somebody handed him to the prophecies and picked them up it was a boy, small boy handed him to the process of the profits a lot and put him on the right in front of
He put them on the right in front of him.
And then he told the rest of the Sahaba who do a sybian
similarly, those who have fallen whose sons whose children are out here, looking for their fathers, pick them up.
Pick those children up, put them on the on the ride on the animal with you. comfort them control them, as they begin to realize that their fathers are not coming home. But as the prophets Allah sees him as Abdullah bin Jaffa in front of him and he starts writing back, one of the sons of Alabama Vitaly
has an ER Hussein the narration doesn't recall which one but one of the sons of Alabama we thought he was in amongst those who had fallen
But he had also come out in the province a lot he some sees his grandson has under his hand. So he similarly says, hand me, the child, and he puts him on the animal behind him.
And this is a prophet allottee. So I want you to have that visual. There are many people out there. I mean, we just had another terrible incident occurred here in our country yesterday. There are many deranged people out there Muslims and non Muslims who want to paint a picture of the profits, a lot of them covered in blood with the sword in his hand.
With a laptop head in the other hand, they want to paint this picture. There are lots of deranged human beings out there. Some who claim to be Muslims and some non Muslim who want to paint that picture of the profits a lot. That's the image they want to invoke in people's hearts and minds when the Prophet system is mentioned. This is the image of the prophets Elisa, this is who the prophets Allah is sitting on the back of an animal with a child sitting in front of him who has just lost his father, with his own grandson sitting behind him on the animal writing and then the narration says through Mombasa ha la see Abdullah bin Jaffa says he was wiping over my head. You know how you come
for the child, kind of pet the child on the back.
You kind of you know, hold him around the shoulders, in their culture, a way of comforting the child was to kind of pat the head of the child
kind of run your hand you know, over the head of the child. And he said he ran his head a hand over my head.
And he was saying that to our as he was running his hand over my head I've delivered Java says
a love model of Java and fi well at
all law. You take care of Jeffers children.
You look after his kids. That's the image of the prophet Elijah holding an orphan in his hands.
comforting him making draw for him while his own grandson rides on the animal behind him.
That's who the profits Alonissos.
But not only that, when the profits a lot ism arrived into the city of Medina.
And as new started to reach the homes,
of people having fallen.
The profits a lot of these goes to the home of Jeff had been Alberto de la Catalano,
the wife of gentlemen, we thought it was a really remarkable so hobby Companion of the Prophet says I'm a very knowledgeable, very sage, very wise, pious woman by the name of a smart bento mace.
She had been preparing some food, some bread. She had bathed the children comb their hair, put clean clothes on them.
hearing the news of the fact that the army is coming back, that my husband's coming home their father is coming home.
So she had cooked food prepared the home, washed and bathe and dress the children to welcome the father home.
And the profits a lot even goes in and he sits down. He has very serious look about him and he says eat to me be benijofar Bring me the children of Jaffa Abdullah and Muhammad the sons
she says that I brought him the two boys said here you go go to the Prophet on Salah. And he says he took them both in his lap and kind of put their put his you know, head
you know kind of on their heads
without of a tie now and then he started to cry.
So I said
as Robin Sharma she says I said be a bee and tell me my Uk rasulillah I would give anything for your messenger of God. Why? What makes you cry? Bella haka, and Jaffa was Javi Did you get some news about Java the processes now? We'll see boo hallelujah.
They are no more.
So she says for him to see who
I stood up and I started to cry, screamed
and the women gathered around me
and the prophets a lot he said him.
He the narration mentions that the prophets a lot of them came out from the home and he told other people that were gathered around their laptop for an hourly job offer.
Do not forget to look after them.
Particularly said anthracnose Ola hunter Harmon. He taught us some real practical etiquette. He said for the next few days I need you to prepare food and send food to the house. they'll forget to eat.
Come here, bring food here and feed them find a home for the show to be unresolved.
him because they're dealing with the loss of their family member.
The narration also some of the books of the Sierra and Hadith. They also mentioned
that that wasn't only it,
but the prophets a lot he sent them after a few days.
So one another narration mentions our shadow, the Allahu taala. And he mentions that
it was a day or two later, and she says, there's a Hadith of
the prophets of autism was really, really struck hard by the loss of Jaffa.
Like it really hit him.
Like he was, like very visibly grieving.
I could see it on his face.
He had tears in his eyes constantly, is really affected by this. And there's something very remarkable. I want to mention here, that humanity of the prophets alavesa is very important. It allows us to be able to relate to him to find guidance and our experiences within him.
So she says he was really grief stricken by this loss.
And someone came to the profits, a lot of the some of the promises, some had taught some etiquette, just from the authentic some of the profits, a lot of them he had taught, he taught us as an oma not to make very overt displays of mourning. Yes, mourn as his natural, cry and remember the person and deal with your grief, lean on your loved ones, but not to make overt displays of mourning where people will scream and shout and cry, and rip clothes and pull their hair. And this was a habit of the jambalaya.
Right? This was something that I used to do in the times of ignorance and the process and said, Do not do this. It's wrong. It's not good.
And so somebody came to the processor and said that there's some folks around the home of Java that are acting this way. And the prophets a lot. He said, he was really grieving. He was in a lot of pain. And he said, tell them to stop.
The person goes, comes back a little while later, they won't stop. They're doing it again.
And the process was kind of quiet. And he said, just please tell them not to. The person goes, comes back alone. They won't stop they're doing it again. I shadowed the Allahu taala on her. She says I was so furious.
I was so angry.
That when that person to process of again told him told the person tell them to stop that would that time when the person left the home she says I went after him and I said I'm Allahu un* What is wrong with you? Are you really that insensitive? Are you really that doll?
You don't get it
for lucky man testify. I don't understand what you're trying to do. mata rasulillah salam salmonella, Anna.
Hadith, Sahih. Muslim, you can't leave the prophets a lot. He sent him to grieve.
Coming here, tattling. They're grieving. They lost a family member. He lost a family member. He's grieving and you're busy about reporting? Oh, they're not doing this, right. They're not doing that. Right. They're not. This is a profound lesson. I showed her the Allahu taala Anna teaches us
that sometimes we have the fifth warriors in our community.
Are we allowed to do this?
I can't tell you how many times this is at some level me just kind of like publicly This is like a therapy session for me. As in the position of being an imam of a community. I cannot tell you how many times I have a janazah sitting in front of me.
I have family members who have my arms around who are crying on my shoulder.
I'm standing in a graveyard burying a loved one with family members, their
tears streaming down their face or burying a loved one.
And I'll have that guy. We're gonna call him that guy. I'll have that guy who will come up be like, Excuse me, ma'am. Is this the proper way? You know, should they be doing this? Should they be doing that? Should they be standing here stay busy. You should not be standing here. Forget about where they should be standing where they shouldn't be what they should be saying what they shouldn't be. Why are you even here? Why do you exist?
And we understand from the story of the life of the process of you are a test for us. Every there's wisdom and all of us creation and the wisdom of your creation is you are a test for people.
With the Allahu talana reprimanded this man, what's wrong with you? Well, lucky man. She says Look, I share one lucky mantra to find watering trying to do
Like she has no words for what this man is doing. And she's one of the most intelligent human beings that ever lived. And she's like, I don't even know how to describe what you're doing.
Right? You need to just relax, you need to chill, you need to go pray, you need to go get a hug from somebody. I don't know what your deal is. And this is a very profound lesson. But it shows you the humanity of the process and he was grieving. And on the other side, it shows you that be a human being.
Be a human being. Try to understand the sensitivity of a situation. Try to understand the pain that someone's in, try to understand the compromise that somebody is dealing with.
You have people talking, giving advice to a homeless person.
did you wipe over your socks? I'm homeless. I apologize. If I was afraid that I would freeze to death outside in the cold and you do not agree with the wiping over the socks issue. I apologize that my homelessness troubles your fear.
This is this is from the sinner from a Muslim from Buhari. This is the Sunnah.
This is our Deen. We are human beings. The prophets, a lot of him came to teach us to be human beings. That's the first and foremost lesson. So this is something very powerful that occurred here. But I'll wrap this up and conclude this
with the prophets a lot. He said, one of the most beautiful things about the prophets a lot he sums character, or I mean everything about his character was beautiful and remarkable and miraculous. But one of the things that really resonates with me is the prophets a lot. He sums ability to be able to put his own pain aside and empathize with someone else and comfort someone else and consult someone else, the ultimate act of self sacrifice and selflessness. It's unbelievable. It is astounds me every single time. I was sitting there earlier today, reading it, and just stunned in silence just staring at it for an hour. Even though it was the third time I was reading it in the last three
days, but I just read it and was stunned all over again. In spite of dealing with data loss with Java, this loss with Abdullah's loss,
grieving himself, the profits a lot of them a few days later,
he goes to Jonathan's home
and he talks to his widow a smell or the Alcatel on AdMob interface. And he tells her laptop koala Akiba. Do
I miss my brother too?
I miss him too.
But no more shouting and crying and screaming no more of this noise. That commotion.
Try to kind of tone it down you got you know, try not to make such a display out of it. I missed them too. I'm hurting too. But no more of this.
He says oh Lee Ebony. He says Bring me my nephews.
Bring me Abdullah Mohammed.
She brings the boys
and Abdullah who narrates the story he says for g b Naka Nana Afro.
He says she brought us and we look like
it's it's it's an example he gives we look like chicks. Like baby chickens chicks.
The reason why he describes it like that is that you know, the chicks the way their hair looks.
It's kind of like shooting out in all directions.
He said, we look like that meaning what he's saying that we needed a haircut.
Our dad used to cut our hair.
But he was no more.
And we needed haircuts. So you know, kids, especially when their hair gets long. You get them ready in the morning, you clean them up, you make their hair what happens 45 minutes later.
They look like they came out of the dryer again. Right? Especially boys. Right? So so he says that our hair was all over the place. Process him sat down with us and he said
Oh God Allah
bring me bring me something to cut their hair with
the profits a lot. So you don't really know when I
say Good Will the admin Yama Yama.
seguido Mussolini Mahmoud ambia habibollah will allow me
to boys who just lost their father says bring me something to cut their hair with for hola caribou Sana and he gave us a haircut himself.
And then he said
a man Mohammedan for shabby who Amina Vitali
said look at after he gave him a haircut, they were cleaned up. They give the kid a haircut and say wow look at you Mashallah.
So he says, Oh, look at Muhammad the younger one. Oh, look at Muhammad.
He looks like my uncle Abu Talib. He looks like his grandfather built on him. Mashallah, wow. And then he says what I'm Abdulahi for shabbiha halki wakulla
He says, Look at Abdullah, look like me, huh? Nephew uncle. You see it.
That's the prophets. Think about what that must have done to their mother's heart.
The communists and the coolness I must have brought to our heart.
And then the prophets Allah, ma da.
And he says a lot of Muslim Jaffer, unfairly Oh Allah, you take care of your friends family, robotically, Abdullah ephesoft. Katia Mini, and put Baraka and Abdullah allow him to become the man
of his household and take care of his family.
And the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he, he made this two or three times.
the mother ascribing to amaze she still looked kind of sad.
So the profits a lot he said them, he understood why she was sad and he says to her ally letter halfin Holly,
you fear that they'll go hungry.
You fear that they'll go hungry. Well, actually you Humphrey dunia will
win I will look after them not only in this dunya but in the
sister You got nothing to worry about. I got them.
This is the profits, a lot of
the profits, a lot of them consoled her. She said that don't cry over your husband. Allah showed me that Allah subhanaw taala they cut off his arms. Allah gave him two wings and he flies with the angels in paradise.
This was the prophets a lot. He said Oh,
and what was that community like?
The Koran says that after a woman has lost her husband, the husband dies a woman is widowed. There is a waiting period the a DA for four months and 10 days
when the four months and 10 days completed. Abu Bakr Siddiq radi Allahu taala on who proposed to us map interface
and took her as a wife and adopted her son's and cared for them and raised them
and they themselves had a son together Mohammed bin Abu Bakar
and Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allahu the prophets, a lot of them would pass away two years later and Abu Bakar Tiana would pass away two years after that. So four years later, after marrying her Abu Bakar about the Allahu Allahu would pass away. So after he passed away, I live in a Vitaly Jeffrey's younger brother I live in a beautiful him, then married her, took her as a wife, and again adopted her sons and raised her sons raised her children. This was a community of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So, with that, inshallah, we'll conclude the session for this particular week. And inshallah,
when we come back then we'll continue on forward, setting the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam May Allah subhanaw taala give us all the ability to practice everything that we've said and heard. So Hannah labmd he Subhana Colombia hamitic Chateau La ilaha illa Anta Asakura Kanata willing
