Yeah, alibi masari, Ico fees. And so what is this mean? Of course, but there was a place when she mentioned but it was a place that's well known. And it's a place where, like I mentioned, there are some places that people gather for fairs, for festivals, for gatherings, sometimes for market for buying and selling. And that's anywhere there's water in the Arabian Peninsula. Then group of people can gather if they're not settled there. Some people live in those areas. And sometimes people don't live in those areas. But most of the time if you're looking for a place to live, you want a place that has water. And so why did the people in Mecca settle? Why did the people sat on that couch to
start with? When there was nobody nothing there? And why didn't they stay there before?
Why did people start staying in Mecca choose choose Mecca as a place to stay
because Zanza very good Mashallah. The tribal Judo mashallah, remember the tribal Jerome, when they came, what are they looking for? They're looking for the wealth. And anyway, there's a well, they can say that, because if you don't have water, you can't survive. But if you have an abundance of water, then you can survive, and it's because of the well of zamzam. People gathered. But then during the time of was
it I'm Rob noodle, hey, Jose, the well of zamzam became, later on it became dried up because of the sheer IQ and disobedience of the people and the shift that was happening. So later on, it was it because of a battle also they were fighting. Some of the scholars have mentioned that they covered up the well of zamzam. And then they weren't able to find it again, when they dig it up. There's no more water. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala hid it from them. But they still had they stayed they already lived there. Their houses and everything was there, the cabin was already there. So where did they get the water from?
But it wasn't one of them's I remember, during the time, the time before Abdulmutallab there was no well of zamzam. It was just a legendary well, people knew about the well, because of the story of how Roger and Ismail, but later on, it wasn't there. And so the well of zamzam was not there, they used to get the Wells from outside. So the water would be brought from outside of Mecca, the wells surrounding Mecca. So it was very difficult to take care of the pilgrims. And that's why the people before but Hashem they were the ones who were, you know, even before the Meccans, the kurush Quraysh, they would bring water from outside for the pilgrims. And it was a big thing. Because you
have a large gathering, you have to bring water for them. And it's one of the one of the more more
virtuous acts even in Jedidiah, to provide water for the pilgrims. Because it was difficult to do so before especially before the well of zamzam. After the well as Hamza was rediscovered, it became a lot easier because the well of zamzam was right there at the caliber. And so I'm mentioning this because the brother, brother there as well as a lot of wells where people can gather. So if you're going to spend some time, if you have an army, that's where you gotta go. That's where you're gonna go. So in funeral Yeah, earlybird limits are equal. And of course, when you have a group, you're racing towards the, well, whoever gets to the world first, what's going to happen, you have control
of the water, and the other people don't have enough water. So you have advantage. So anytime you're at war, you, you want to make sure that you have control of the wells, at least the water, right, that's what you want to secure first, because that's, it's like, you know, nowadays, if you have a battle, you can you can, you can send the tanks over, right, but eventually the tanks ever run out of fuel.
So you have to have the supply lines. But nowadays, you have to have supply lines, you have to have water, you have to have the means to replenish that water for your army. And so in Philia, the limits are here, limits are equal.
And as she says, So what does this mean? Of course, this means this dream means that every single household is going to be afflicted affected by the battle, but that means there's somebody who's going to die in each household. That's why the boulders going into the household
Is this the death that will befall upon every household and MACRA every family every clan is going to have someone who is going to be killed?
Who is the who's going to be killed? Why? Because he says in in funeral you are the better
the Masayo I come to your death and then of course who's going to get we received that who's going to be affected by this all the rocks that go into into every single house? And so, when she
so when when she mentioned this
when she mentioned this
Abuja Abuja decides to he is
chasing, isn't it enough?
Like, look, this is a warning, right? It's a scary warning. And they know, they know also, like, even in Arabia, they know that dreams can have can be very significant. Especially when you see a dream, and you see something half of it already happening, the warning and the person that thought that was longer. So okay, that means that we continue with this, everybody's going to be afflicted by death, every household is going to inflict by death. And so that's the interpretation and the people. Sometimes the interpretation of a dream is very clear, like death is mentioned. So everyone understands that no death is going to be this is something's going to happen, there's going to be
death and every family. And sometimes a dream is more symbolic. And so you need to interpret those dreams. And some dreams are a lot more clear. Like I know some brothers like a brother came to me one time and he says, He's a chef, I saw a dream that I married a person by this name, and he mentioned that they think what does that mean?
What what do you want me to interpret?
Some dreams are clear. It's not like, you know, symbolic. There's no symbolism here. Yeah. sha Allah like that. Sometimes. Some dreams, it's good news. It's glad tidings. It's not it's not predicting the future, because you never know the future. You never know the future because your dream it's the dream itself. You're never sure. Are you? 100% Sure, no, you're never you're never 100% sure that it happens. Oh, that's what it meant. Right. But some, some dreams are very clear, very evident, like the dream, a proper use of RSM labs. There's a lot of symbolism. There's a lot of symbolism. And so and so like the dream, even the dream of the king, during the in the story of Prophet Yusuf Ali's,
those are the you know, the fat cows and the lean cows, those are symbolism. But here, it's pretty clear, it's very clear, oh, people, but even the place that they're going to die as mentioned.
The old people better come to your death, and even the exact day, like in fact, in three days, somebody's gonna call you and when you go, they're calling to your death.
The Caliente or death, not only every single family is going to be afflicted by this calamity. And so Abuja hell is hearing of course, the woman and the people of Mecca are speaking about it. And he's not very happy. But he's not very happy. Why is any Why isn't he very happy? Because people are scared of the dream. And they hear this and they know that this is what's going to happen based on the dream that there are a lot of people going to die, are they going to want to go?
They're not going to want to go right? And so he is, he
starts to scold, and speak against
starts this first golden speak against, against against Africa, of course, who's the leader now?
in Arabia, or in the Quraysh? After the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, after the uncle of course, the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was
who passed away before.
He used to protect the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, who was it used to protect the prophets of Allah, Allah Hassan.
I will tell him when he was the most respected, bundle Hashem. When he passed away, passed away. There was the next person in line who is the most respected of all the brothers.
You know, all the uncles of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was ambassador Abdullah Al Abbas. So he's he took the charge took
The reign of for, for many Hashem. And so battle Hashem, of course was led by Allah Bhasin Abdullah and so Abuja hell. He is from the rival clan.
But Omaha zoo is from that there the rival clan, like the the Capulets, and Montagues. And, you know, the old days in the 80s, with the Crips in the blood, like, he's like the rivals, right? in Arabia, it was melanoma zoom Banu Hashim, when that's why people forgot to hash and zoom. They didn't like each other, there was a rivalry, there was a very, very strong rivalry amongst each other. And very tribal in the clan itself that everyone of course, was, you know, it was split, even they're all from the Quraysh. But amongst the sub clans, there was a, there was a great rivalry between them and amongst them was of course, the leader of the other was a Bucha had a very, very
respected also and and when Abu Talib passed away, it was a lambasted. So he came, Abuja came to us and
says, Isn't it enough? Like? Is it enough that you already have a profit? What is the profit? When you say somebody he has, he's giving a prophecy?
What's the profit? That that that particular name? And what does it mean? You know, like the word maybe? Maybe as what
it's giving in glide, not just something small news. But a big news. Like something that is, you know, like a prophecy is like, foretelling something like in the future, where because prophets receive revelation from Allah subhanho wa taala. So they're given knowledge of some of the knowledge of what's going to happen, like in here after, and so forth. And so some of the knowledge that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada gives them. And so he says, he says, Isn't it enough that you have a profit from you? Who is the Messenger of Allah, of course, is a prophet. And now you have a prophet test. Also, like a female prophet, a prophet is awesome, isn't it enough, like he's making fun of Banu Hashim,
for he's making fun of Ben Hashem. And of course, they, because aluminum nominally fatty, he is asking them for help.
He's asking for help.
They all start to march, they all start to march towards the Messenger of Allah, Allah has towards lead, actually towards where they would expect to meet the caravan. So what they're going to do is they're going to go with the intention of what's the intention,
original intention, it was to protect the caravan. So everyone who left left was the intention of protecting the caravan. So the Muslims also when did they why did they leave, they last Medina with the intention of raiding the caravan. But that's what they were intending. And the Mexicans intended to protect the caravan. So that's the original intention. Of course, both intentions will be null and void. In other words, it's not needed anymore. So how is that going to happen? Well, I will Sofia realizes
he realizes the danger that's coming towards him from the
Muslims or from the non Muslims that are marching out of Medina towards him. And so when he reaches near the area
he asked he meets a person in by the name imaginenative number. And he asks him about the he asks him about the
the position or where the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam was, he's asking him, and when he asks, Why is he asking him?
He's asking him like, where's where is this? You know, where are they at? Where's his army? Is somebody coming out? So of course he hears you hears about some but something he hears about two writers. Some of the mentioned the saw, or there's some somebody saw two writers that came
towards the caravan. And of course, who are these two writer writers?
These two writers, of course, are the
some are two people from the the companions of the Prophet some would send, remember he's sending to see where the caravan is, are you sending the companions to check on him. So when he realizes that this, these camels that came, the cameras I came came from Medina, and he knows that he noticed that he realizes that from the dung of the camera that has the dates, the date seeds in it, so he knows that these camels came from the prophets of Allah as of which means what, which means the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam knows exactly where the caravan is, which means he's coming towards he knows how many days away how long it is, so now he's going to be
in trouble. But of course, the Messenger of Allah, Allah Anika, so he went very quickly. And he did not want anyone to know also because when it comes to warfare information is very, very important. Like the difference between
victory and losing is the information that you have. And so the prophets of Allah Allahu wa sallam knows all knows that the caravan where the caravan is,
and Abu Sofia now knows that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also knows.
So most of you are also knows
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was coming. So what does he do?
He, instead of taking the most direct route, because when you're going from a sham, there's a route, there's like, sort of like a mountain pass, it's in the middle. And between Medina and Ejaz, right, there's, there's an area where there's mountains. And so you either go inside, which is the most direct, or you take the coastal route, you take the closer, it's like, you're going around a little bit, you're going back out the comeback, you know, towards towards the coast, and then you're going to come down towards
the present day, you know, Genda, then you come in. But if you come straight down, then it's a little bit shorter. And you have to also understand that this is those route roads, the routes that they usually take, the reason why those routes are chosen is because there are wells along the way.
Like, you know, any caravan, it's just like for us, right? When you're taking a road, you know, there are specific roles that you go, if you go out of those roads, you're not going to have all the amenities, you're not going to have the rest areas, you're not going to have maybe enough fuel stations if you leave the regular road. So there's two roads, either the coastal road, or the direct road, if I was in fear, did not know
that the Prophet sallallahu that I was coming, then he would have been surprised, there would have been a surprise attack.
Now about Sofia knows. But most of you have also noticed that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also, you know was coming already. But now he's sure of where he's coming from. Right? He knows where he's coming from. And they're about to meet that a certain area like this is this is the area where they're going to meet,
which is in the area cost around budget.
And so what he does is before he reaches but
before he takes the coastal route, and when he takes the coastal route, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not going to know this, right? Because you know, you don't have satellite imagery and so forth. In the old days, you can only send people out. And if once you send people, you think that they're there, and they take a different route, when you go there, and they're not going to be there. So here, he takes the coastal route towards the west. And by doing so, and by doing so, he's going to,
he's going to be able to avoid confrontation. Why? Because when you take the coastal route, there's also a mountain pass. And once you if you come like this, you're gonna meet but if you go like this, by the time the prophets on the line comes, they will have been on another route already. And they would they would have been protected also by the mountain, the mountain the mountain range, so they would still be able to cross and get to them but by the time they would get to them, it would be too late. The the caravan would have already been
gone already south, if because this was supposed to be a surprise attack, but if somebody already knows you're coming and they're already avoided, then of course that surprise is gone. And you're not going to meet the caravan. And so when obsidian decides to take this route, what he realizes that he's not he knows where the Prophet sallallahu was coming and where he's going.
He knows also that the Messenger of Allah now doesn't know that he's taking a different route that the caravan is now going to be safe.
So he is sure that the caravan is going to be safe, because he's changed his route.
And so he sends a message
again, to tell the people of Mecca
to the Quraysh. And during this time, the Quraysh they had already left. They went to Jehovah already, they've already come out of Mecca to Jehovah to tell them that the caravan is safe, you don't have to come go back to Mecca. You only have Musa Viana sending a message to everybody in Mecca don't come you don't need to cop we're safe. We it's not the caravan is not in danger of being raided anymore. And most of the people in Mecca most of the people in the army, they wanted to go back to Mecca. Why? Because that was their intention to us put it to protect the caravan. Now that the caravan is protected, you don't need to go and protect it you don't need to go anymore. But
He says, he says by Allah says Wallahi then that is yet had Narita better weather. So by Allah, we're not going to return.
We're not going for. So he swears by Allah and you might say was a non Muslim when he swears by Allah, because he believes in Allah also. Are the backends they believe in God. The only the big the big problem with him is that they associate in worship with Allah, they believe in God, but they don't worship Allah alone. They worship also idols also with Allah subhanho wa taala. So that's why Allah says well inside the human halacha somehow it well. They are following Allah. If you were to ask Him Who created the heavens and the earth, they would have said Allah, but they associate with ALLAH. So he says, well, Allah, he might Allah, Allah, Allah Nerja, we will not return will not
return had netted Madras until we get to weather until we get one, okay, Moby has Alaska. And then we get there. We're going to spend three nights there. And then we're going to plan for and then have jiu jitsu
and we will, we will slaughter our camels. We're not trying to time in other words, we will, we will feast we will slaughter the camels and we will eat and drink and others will feast. And, of course, oneness will hob and also we will, you know, will eat and drink. And we will have the maidens will have the women sing. The singers sing to us why? And this is another words they're going to. They're going to
they're going to celebrate.
And they're going to make it a festival. Like we're going to make this festival. Right, we're going to make this festival. And why is he doing this? Because he wants to make it. But there's a place you can gather. And so he wants to make it something like a celebration of festival. Why? To send a message. But also if he does this, there's an opportunity, there's a chance that people will make this a
something that is so becomes a part of the culture. But because some of these events gatherings, it happened because of something
big happens because of an event. Just like for example Independence Day. Why is July 4 special because of an event that occurred and why did they choose certain days? Right certain days because some events happen. So he wants to make this an event. He wants to make this as a celebration. Why? Because we want to test Malvina Lara.
Dima Syrena. We're generator. We want to the Arabs to hear
about how many people came out to protect our caravan.
How many people came out to take a cab we want to hear
about how we came out, and how we
gathered, the our gatherings here are our gathering, and also are coming out to protect the caravan fillet as Luna you have woonona Aveda.
And so that they will forever
be at all of us, all of us. In other words, there'll be afraid of us. And they will know that you don't mess with the caravans or the of the of the Meccans. So what he's tried to do is try to send a message to all of Arabia, okay, the caravan is protected, but you know, we're not going to go back, we're not going to make this a wasted trip, okay, we're gonna make this a seat, we're gonna make a C, and we're gonna make it an event. So that other tribes, other clans and other tribes, when they hear about it, the next time when they see our caravan, they don't mess with it. Because if you mess with our caravan, then we're going to destroy you. We're going to send an army against you. Right.
And so that's why, like, right now you have
some people attacking ships and so forth. And then people are gathering. And so sometimes people want to make a send a message, if you don't send a message, then they might, they might continue. And sometimes you're able to send a message. Sometimes you intend to send a message. And then the opposite message happens and you lose.
And that's worse, that's the worst that can happen. Right? Like you want to send a message, you want to let people know that, you know, we have the other nations of the world are united.
The nations of the world are united. Now we're going to send you a lesson, the lesson and the lesson. So this is this is out of whack. Why is he doing this out of arrogance?
This is out of arrogance. And that's why when they came out, they came they came out full of arrogance. And
Allah subhanho wa Taala even mentioned befallen where he nests. We also do an answer vilella. They came out in for pomp, for arrogance, showing trying to show off to the people. And of course,
what was their main reason?
Also to show the force, they show that they are powerful, that they are indeed strong, that they're that you don't mess with us. And that's why some of the enemies of Islam. Sometimes they try to harm the Muslims. And they harm everybody. They're extremely, of course, cruel. Children, woman, everybody. Why? Because they want to send a message. There's no mercy, no Rama, there's no rules. No rules are that they that they follow. It's arrogance. And it's cruelty. And so this is what the Meccans wanted to do. So what happens Sharla. And so we all know what happened. They weren't too bad, right? But everybody wanted to come back. And they really didn't want to listen.
They did not the real people. They don't want to fight.
Right. But it's the leader, that arrogance. Now like right now, if you ask the majority of the people, even the army of the occupiers, and you ask them, they don't want to fight. I think they don't know what they want to go back home to their families. Like the majority that they're like, they don't want to fight.
And everybody that they don't want this, but who is it is pushing them.
And even the American, the American people, the majority of the American people, a very, very good and peace, peace loving people, but it's their leaders, their leaders who are arrogant, and sometimes it's because of their, their arrogance, and also because of their greed. Because they have the backing of you know, these companies or the military industrial complex because of oil or for you know, economic reasons. But of course, they're gonna tell you it's all about patriotism and so forth. Right. And so that's what I was going to say the same thing also. Right. And so they want to what they really want to protect the caravan routes. That's there's some there's there's a financial
benefit here. The economic benefit, they want to protect their financial, this caravan route, because if the caravan route is going to be in danger, then it's going to ruin the economy. Because trade is very, very important. That's the lifeline of any country economy is trade. And that's why
Just the ships that can go through a certain area, it's causing so much problems. And that's why everyone is that's why there's so many military bases, like in the Middle East because of the oil. It's not trying to, you know, it's not about democracy or anything like that. It's to protect their, their economic interests. And that's an assignment in Mecca, the Buddha, he says, you know, we're gonna go and we're gonna go and we're gonna party we're gonna face whenever people sing.
So that the people will continue fillet as Aluna you have own an Abba that fumble. So let's go, everyone, let's go. So everybody from afar, who
people they obeyed him, with the exception of Agnes, Agnes.
Agnes, initially, he took his people and he is from Venezuela. He took His people and He says, You know what we came out. We wanted to protect the caravan, the caravan safe, everyone is going back. Okay, if the people don't go back, my clan, let's go back, you go back. So you took back how many that have to get all together, the total number that started marching. Remember 1300 is a 300 returned. So 1000 left. So 1000, the rest, they continued.
to they continue to go. And
of course, they continued along the way. And until they reached the area that was near nearby, nearby, and when the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard about now he doesn't know the army is coming. The news reaches the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
the news while the Muslims are marching to raid the caravan, the news of the army coming from Mecca, reaches the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So now the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
updates the companions. This is what's happening.
this, this is what's happening, what do you think we should do?
Because they didn't come to fight. And so they didn't come for a battle. They came to re take care of that. And when you come to a pro camp, everyone's thinking you don't take you don't, you don't have all your weapons. You don't have all your fighters, you just have a group, a small group compared to what if the message of Allah were to wait for everybody else calling. So he's not asking people to come, whoever wants to join, they're free to join. We're going right now. It's optional. You want to stay back. You don't have to just like many of the other battles, of course, like taboo, and so forth. The Messenger of Allah ordered everyone was able to join because they needed the
numbers, and they needed the fighters. But here, they were not expecting to go. They were not expecting to fight. But now the Messenger of Allah realizes that, you know, there might have to there might be a fight that's gonna occur, because the Meccans are coming with an army. But the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also does not know how large this army is. He doesn't know. He just knows that there's an army that's marching towards him from Makkah. So now he has to consult with the companions and Allah Subhana Allah says, Kim Raja caribou coming by Tikka will help when every Aminul Momineen Allah curry Hoon? Like, indeed come Afra jakirah book I'm in Beta Kappa
will help just like what Allah when your Lord took you out of your houses in truth, indeed a group of the believers when they heard about this, Hey,
they didn't. They didn't like it. They said, Hey, we came. We wanted to raid the caravan. That's easy to easy pickings. We're not expecting to fight here. We're not expecting a real bout or we came to you know, we came to to read the caravan. And, and so but Allah Subhana Allah says way the I do qumola who had a thought if at any level, but Allah promises you promises you that you will get one of the other one or the other. In the party for tiny I know
Halochem either you either you get the caravan, or you're going to be victorious. Like you're not going to lose. So Allah has promised you all right already
under Halochem butter we're doing another IRA that is show Kavita cool Nola but you wanted the one without power without strength to be for you, but who did they really want? They want to fight a large army or they just want to read a caravan. And Allah says you want it what what do I know IRA that a shell catheter cannula cool. But you wanted the caravan, the one without strength without power. In other words, the caravan doesn't have an army that you're fighting. It's just a group. That's maybe 30 fighters against 300 They're gonna flee they're gonna run they're not going to be able to they know they're not going to be when. But while you read Allah you will help Bobby Kelly
Mati but Allah wants to the truth to be established.
Right, the truth to be established way up toward the idea of caffeine. Then Allah Subhana Allah wants to cut off the disbelievers In other words, the finish them up and Allah subhanho wa Taala whatever he wants, the loss of Hannah to Anna, you might not like something, but it's best for you. So the end the outcome is best for you. So the Muslims, of course, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned this verse in surah. Ali Imran mentioning about this potato
about the clash. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala
promises the believers and so but the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
then the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
updates the companions. He's updating them, he's telling them what's what's happening? What's the latest news? And
what do you guys think we should do?
What do you guys think we should do? So the Leaders Course amongst them was Abu Bakr, he stood up and spoke he says, you know, Messenger of Allah, whatever you want, where we're with you, whatever you decide, we're with you, even if we fit even we have to fight the enemy. We didn't come out to fight but if we have to fight, we will fight.
We don't know how big they are, how large they are, what kind of army that is. We know they're probably much bigger than we are. And they have more resources than us because we came out to raise a caravan we didn't come out to fight, they came out to fight.
They came up for battle. And so the so Robocop in aroma, they spoke
and they said something similar? They said similar things. And then I look at that number
he stands up and he says, he says, You know, I agree with everyone who just spoke. I will back up Omar and he says yeah rasool Allah, he says O Messenger of Allah, Emily Morocco Allah like you know, just go whatever you whatever you decide.
Go with it.
For now, no matter whatever you decide to fight the enemy, or whatever you decide, we're with you. We are with you. Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola.

Allah subhana wa has promises out of the Nakada you will have the holy land if you go and fight you will be victorious Allah will give you victory Allah has promised you so even though see this is Allah has promised them but

And he says for Wallah, the batha will help by he who said he would the truth, Lau served abena al Adel karamat. If you were to take us all the way to the mind is that coastal city and the coast. And by the way, if they would have gotten there, if they had a gun there where it was that what would they have done?
If they would have taken the road, they would have met the caravan.
So but he's just saying he doesn't know. He says even if he took us to the coast, forget about a board meeting that they expected Amina, but that right to know even if you tell us all the way to go to the coast, yeah, we will go there. And if they would have gotten to the coast, they met the caravan. But they're not expecting the caravan to be there. Even if you take us to the coast, we would follow you we would follow you we would go we would also go there with you. And so
he says, After that he says, We will fight with you, and not a single one of us.
Not a single one of us would stay back.
and another narration he says we will go and fight will be on your left and on your right. And afterwards of course
and we will be behind you in front of you. So go messenger of Allah. So the messenger of Allah Salam, here's who does he hear from?
He hears from Al Baghdadi, Abu Bakr, Omar, these are all very prominent companions, but not everyone is going to stand up and speak. So these are very, very influential and prominent companions. But what do they all have in common?
They're all from Mecca. for them.
They are all from Mecca. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, A sheet is
a sheet Yohannes Oh, people advise me please, everyone, people advise me. And he keeps on saying this. And people are wondering what else is there to be said? What else can be said after will admit that Ramana has already said like, what else can we say? Yeah, we all agree. And this is what everybody's thinking. Right? Probably everyone's thinking what else? She you know, I feel, nurse or people you tell, you know, give me advise me, please

Side of New, More Island side of new mines. He's the leader of the unsolved, like, he's the one that's carrying the flag, Ban the flag bearer of the answer. And so he realizes, he says, you know, know what the messenger of Allah wants?
Why What's he trying to say? He's trying to he's mentioning this because the Messenger of Allah, some love, and he also was very meticulous. When he does things. He's very organized and he thinks things through. He's very intelligent, of course, and he thinks things through. And so he knows. Right now they're going to fight
the agreement in beta tilaka.
In beta tilaka, little Cobra, were the one word companions took the Vega. The promise was to protect. Remember, they invited the prophets of Allah Halima setups. And when he comes to Medina, the promise they promised to protect him
like they will protect their own
If you arise Medina, where are they now?
They're outside Medina. The agreement was to protect and fight and defend Islam in Medina. But now they're outside Medina, in the Messenger of Allah so Allah Allah is did not want he wanted to make sure that everybody is on the same page.
The same page that there's no disagreement here. And so sad and moron he realizes this and he says, Well hola hola Anika Torre Dona ya rasool Allah. Wala halacha Nica to read in a yellow Sol Allah by Allah. It says if you want us to speak meaning the unsavoury
the people of Medina to speak and the messenger of allah sallallahu. Lesko said, Yes, of course. It's I want to hear you speak, because everyone who spoke was not from Medina. And so he says,
he saw them tomorrow. He says, forgot monadic pocket monadic we believe that you must adopt NACA, and we trusted you We believe in you. We have faith in you, I believe you for sure hidden under magic Debbie who will help and we have testified that what you brought is the truth. Well play naka de la cara hood and our Maratea panna Allah summary.
And we have already given our covenants and our promise to listen and obey, to follow on listen and obey. Family Yeah, rasool Allah li Murat suggests whatever you want, go forward with it. Go forward with it. He said, Well, let me backtrack a bit
by the by the one who sent me with the truth by the one who sent you the truth. That was Starbuck, Davina handlebar,
if you were to go all the way into the ocean, into the sea, if you were to go into the sea,
and you told us to go where you go into the sea you told us to go with and we would go with you, not a single one of us. Mamata Khalifa Mina radula head, oh, so not a single person.
Though not a single person was stay back.
And he says, Indeed, we are people who are used to war we are patient, we are strong
in warfare, and we are truth, we are really true. When we meet the enemy, and maybe Allah will show you, Allah will show you a Messenger of Allah, that which will make you happy
for citizen being a citizen. facil Bina Allah barkatullah. So go ahead and take we let's go.
Let's go with the blessing of Allah subhana wa Tada. So notice, he said, Remember, that nominee says even if you bring us to the ocean, to the sea, or to the beach will go to the beach. It gets all the way to the beach, we'll go all the way to the beach. Saddam was even will tell us to enter the sea will go into the sea into the water. Yeah, that is that this is something big because Arabs used to be afraid of the ocean.
They were you know, they it wasn't it wasn't something that everybody was afraid of the sea but specifically the Arabs of the desert. When they see the ocean that's like, it's a different thing. And that's why, you know, when the Muslims during the time of their time of Omarosa top Did they have a navy?
No, they did it. It was the first time that had an AV was the time of birth might have been five because Omar was afraid the ocean and so they didn't have nav and that's why they have of course, you know, like the Navy was Muslims do the word Admiral comes from a mutual behalf near Alba. So that was a person who was in charge of the naval forces. Amir is the leader of power and that's the word that comes from the word admiral in English comes from a nearby right Admiral just like that, you know, when you don't know Arabic? I'm your Admiral, I sound like Admiral like and so that's the original or original word and it was during the time of Prophet and during the time of birth, madam
naffaa. So they say that, you know, you go into the ocean like we will listen to you forget to tell us to go into the water, we will go into the water with you. We have to and so you will see that we are true fighters. Why did he say that? Because the people of Medina
are used to fighting.
They've been fighting all their lives.
They've been fighting, they know how to fight. They've been fighting all their lives.
Because of the conflict between the house and husbands. They you heard there. It's like it was an area that's constantly fighting. They grew up in that environment. They knew how they know how to fight. They've been through many battles, that people of Makkah, they're there. They didn't have much wars, except for few skirmishes or smooth, small battles and you know, here there, but in terms of real
Fighting the people of Medina who are used to it, they were warriors, the House and the hostage. They were warriors. And Allah subhana, Allah prepared them. And so that's why some of our brothers and sisters or brothers and in Gaza, like those, they're warriors. They grew up, they grew up, seeing, they're not afraid of death, they see death every day. Now afraid of death. They're not attached to the dunya. They're courageous. People who are attached to the dunya, they're cowards. You're afraid to lose this illusion, they don't have anything. There. Career, the most courageous people, and they generation after generation, very courageous people. And, and they're not afraid of
death. The people of Medina, they were used to fighting. And so the Prophet so that's why Assad and why he says, you'll see. You'll see. And maybe Allah will show you what kind of fighters we are, and we will be with you along the way. And so the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very, very happy. Why? Because everybody is on the same page. Because if you fight, let's say something happens and the Messenger of Allah did not make this shorter. Maybe some fighters said, Hey, listen, we didn't want we this is not what we bargained for. We wanted the caravan right now, but not everybody. Nobody can say. Nobody can say that. Oh, no, I wasn't that also, notice that the
Prophet said, Allah, Allah has realized that he know that the Companions would agree. Yes, but he wanted to verbal confirmation
from every group, every other leaders. Why? Because sometimes you have a meeting, right? That's why it's very important. When you have a meeting, and there's an agreement, you don't just don't take silence as a as an approval. Because in some countries, like I know, you I sometimes I speak to the, the brothers in Asia, especially in Asia, you have a shura meeting, right? And you say, in sha Allah, you know, this is what we want, okay? We want to do this. Is everybody okay?
Like, they don't want to say no, they don't want to say no, or they don't want to give an ID once you make, make an, you know, make a decision. Right? You say, Okay, this is what we want to do. What do you guys think?
Then you don't ask each one of them to speak? Then you say, Okay, is everybody okay with this? Nobody's going to speak. And then afterwards, when you start the project, like, I didn't like that, that idea from the beginning.
Like, why didn't you say we had a meeting? Why didn't you say anything? As well, because I didn't want to disagree with you to make you feel like you know, like, that's okay. Because sometimes, you know, some, especially Asians, right, Southeast Asian people Southeast Asia, like, you know, the brother from
Vietnam, Cambodia, and maybe Malaysia. Also, when you have somebody who others respect, they're afraid to speak,
by they're afraid to speak up. And so like, okay, they just, you know, just, if they don't say anything, you know, ask them specifically, like, oh, no, I didn't, I didn't agree. Because sometimes a no to them. They say yes. They say yes. Okay, but maybe that yes. Is not a true Yes.
They just say yes. Because out of respect.
Yeah, culturally, you know, in America, you know, like you say, no, no, I don't think it is right. But in some cultures, they don't want to say no, if you make a decision, especially if you have a position of authority, even if you want them to speak, then unless you say no, please give me your opinion right now. And then they give your opinion. But if you don't say anything, so you guys agree.
Yes. But then I said, but you said yes. You nodded your head no, because I didn't want to say anything. Because if you don't give them the opportunity to speak. So right here, the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam is in a position of authority, but he wants them he wants to hear everyone making sure everyone's on the same page. And so that's why he didn't allow them just, he didn't just take silence. As as something that is,
you know, that's acceptable. And that's why you know, when when it comes to when they accept, of course, with the exception of, in some circumstances, that silence is okay. Okay, like for example, and I'll end with this in sha Allah.
You know, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
He said, that
Since a woman a girl or woman, who is who hasn't been married yet she is known. Do you call that liquor?
Liquor? Right? As fame? I say, but to start my
Well, well, because
if new Hazama to her
approval is her silence.
Her approval is there. So if she doesn't say anything, that's that means as Yes, that's a yes. Right. And that's because naturally a woman, especially if someone who hasn't been married yet, they're naturally shy. Right. And so when you speak of a marriage that shy, they have a natural shyness and women
are naturally shy, right? And so, so if, let's say a sister, sister hasn't been married yet, and she is very happy. Some brother comes and asked for her hand in marriage, and she's, she's happy. You might not even see in her face. He's she might be blushing.
But she might be blushing. And so when the father says, says, you know, so and so wants to marry you. Are you okay with it? Are you okay? Would you like to get married to you? Okay, she's not gonna say yes.
If she does that there's a problem.
Right? So her shyness, natural shyness is gonna keep him from saying anything. So she might be so shy that she won't say anything. She might be blushing. And sometimes she doesn't want to say anything.
She doesn't want to say anything.
So her silence is her approval. But someone who's already been married, you can't wait in person. If she's silent, don't marry up, she can speak she's already got married, right? She knows that's gone.
After the first marriage, she has to say okay, yes or no? Yes. Okay, I want I want to get married. But someone who's never been married before their natural shy that you asked them. And they're gonna be naturally shy. So Islam respects that. If you're silent, then that's an approval. That's Yes, we will marry you off. And we consider that and approval, because of the type of person you are. And you know who you are, and so forth. Right? And so, but when it comes to meetings, right? Because the meetings, you don't want, some people might be silent, they might not want it. So you want to make sure hey, I want to know, especially people who are influential, right? What do you think about
this, I want you to speak. You know, I want you to speak because I don't want you later on to come, you know, we agree on this thing. And you come later. Oh, I didn't agree. I didn't say anything.
And they say no, you can't come later. I didn't say anything. And that's why when you have Assura make sure you don't just take silence as an approval. Right. And this is, this is a woman trying to get married. And she's you know, she's shy when someone comes in ask for her hand in marriage. And so
it's very important that, you know, everyone is on the same page. And then when you move forward, you have less problems, or you have less problems. Otherwise people will come later on Oh, no, I wasn't with this project. I didn't agree. And so what happens, then they said, No, we're going to build another Masjid. I didn't agree to this. And I didn't agree to do that. No. So when you're making sure make sure all the people were prominent people who from different maybe representatives of different groups, and so forth, or influential because of their family, make sure that they agree. And don't just take silent, no, just take a silence as a yes. Try to make make sure that they
come out and speak also, so that you are sure that everybody's on the same page, especially when it comes to short run meetings and gatherings in the loss of Hannah noseless. So, the show ended right here. Anyone have any questions? Otherwise?
We're gonna call home we haven't taken a shot.
