For the battle, but which is known as Surya
is an incident that occurred.
And this was during the time that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
of course, had already established himself. Once the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has established who said the masjid, the heart. And then of course, the Constitution of Medina in the last few weeks, we've been speaking about the Constitution of Medina and the pact between the Muslims and the people there meaning the you who are blind, okay, no ha, but availa and Bronwyn Alia. And, of course, they were, they had formed one nation. So now it's a country even though there are different parts to it, just like you have different
like, in the UK, we have the United Kingdom, part of the United Kingdom, you have Scotland, Wales, England, and Northern Ireland, they are one country, but they're not really provinces also, but same time they, they help each other. I mean, militarily, economically, it's pretty much one country. But at the same time, there's also representatives from each country, and they have separate
more than a state, you know, the state is more closer to each other. But when it comes to like, you know, the formation like something like the United Kingdom, they have, everyone has different even their soccer teams are different. They have their own soccer teams is even though it's one UK, like us, when we when when the United States plays,
you know, soccer do they don't have a Washington State team? Right, they don't have a Washington State team. Otherwise you have 50 teams that you know, competing, but every team is actually different. Wales has their own and Scotland and same thing, when it comes to they're coming together sort of like a pact to form one united like they say United Kingdom, the UK. And part of that, so similar to that was the formation of before that, of course.
It was established in Medina, and Medina, of course, now you have the Alcindor has a ranch. And of course, they were almost everybody at that time, during the time of the arrival of the Prophet sallallahu. Most were already Muslims amongst the house in the hazard edge. And then you have the different tribes among the hood. So the herd themselves, we have the three major tribes by no car, no car, they were the ones who are closest to where the where the harder hazards in the house were the and then you have been on a deer or river, a little bit further out. And so Medina now had been established as a state. And
the first thing that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did was of course, those three things established the foundation of the country afterwards.
The Meccans declared war. The Meccans of course sent a message to to Medina. And the reason why the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to Medina to start with was what he was taught, he came to Medina to be the leader. He came to Medina to be the leader at the invitation of the house and also considered in the answer because they were extremely tired of fighting each other and after the battle bla, as I mentioned, the majority of the leaders of Mecca leaders of Medina had already been killed. And now that Medina, of course the Mexicans had declared war. And remember part of the agreement between the Muslims n, the hood and also part of the pack and the treaty and also
the Constitution of Medina. Was that anyone who were You were not allowed to help those who had declared war on the state. And so the people the first to declare war on the, on the Muslim on this new state was they were the methods and then they were the Meccans and Allah subhanho wa taala.
Afterwards and had given the permission of course the fight and this was in Medina and Mecca, they were not allowed to fight the the, but you know, they were of course allowed to
you know, they didn't they were not allowed to resort to any type of violence whatsoever. And Mecca it was patience, and the order was to be patient and to be firm upon the deen of Allah subhanaw taala but when they established the state Allah Subhana Allah that I gave permission to fight
That's when the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent
a caravan or set a Surya, Surya, what is the Surya you have as far as what was the what are the major battles, and they are the ones who are the ones that are generally the ones that are participated by the prophets of Allah. So you would call that versa. But sometimes if it's a major campaign, even without the participation, of the Messenger of Allah de la Vallee, who are some some of the others here, the scholars of Sierra, the biography of the prophets of Allah herself, they compilers, the biography of the Prophet saw a lot so they called those of us that also. And even though the Messenger of Allah Allah lives and did not participate, and we'll cover some of them in
sha Allah later on, so he have a Cydia Surya to Nicola, then before this the Messenger of Allah who would send the Seraiah. So I are the, our campaigns are companions at the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam would send send out, and who are the majority of the people who were part of the Seraiah usually with the people in the prophets of Allah would send out. They were the ones who who would who would have the most, the most time?
Yes, but what was what's the reason for they were generally the people who were in the masjid because they were there, they were ready, you know, didn't have most of them. Most of them did not have families. So sometimes they would send out sofa. So the profits of a labor this, you know, most people who think of as a sofa, what do you think about them?
What's the first thing that comes to your mind?
What equivalent to what nowadays?
Homelessness? Most people think they're homeless, right? No, they're not the ones who are. They're not like the homeless people who don't have places to stay. You know, they were the people who were the students of knowledge because the the masjid of the prophets of Allah was like a dormitory. So I want you to go to the people in the University of Washington and to tell them call them over this week. I mean, they're poor students, right. And usually, when you think of our students, they don't have a lot of money. You know, like, Yeah, but so they're more equivalent to the students of knowledge. But not only were they the students of knowledge,
they were also, you know, the mayor and every country, you have people who are ready to go at anytime they have the standing army, you have the reserves, and you have what's the opposite of reserves.
The active, active army right there, right there they are at any moment, the Messenger of Allah salaam can call them at any moment to go. So they were not a burden to society. They were the students of knowledge. And they were the active Army, active members like of the military.
Because so it was a masjid of the prophets of Allah, Allah herself, was a masjid
a university. And also it was
everything. Like that was the center of society. And the people in the back of the masjid the philosopher. They were the ones who have the Prophet sallallahu, sometimes Sen. And they were the first people who are always ready. Right? You want them send this, send them somewhere? Who's available, who's available, they're right there in the masjid. At that moment, I need you guys to go and check what's going on. So the messenger of Allah had sent one campaign after the other one campaign. But one of the main reasons he would send was to sometimes to check on the people to check on the movements of the caravans to check on the movements of the caravan. And just to also
sometimes, to why would you send a delegation sometimes
when you have just established a Muslims a new state, what you want to do is you want to have peace and agreements with your neighbors, right? So you would send people to negotiate and to make sure that you have instead of having enemies and foes around you, you want your friends, you want them to be your allies. You want the people who are closest to you, your neighbors, you want them to be your allies. And so sometimes the Messenger of Allah Salam would send some of the companions for that purpose. And so this study at UCLA was what the seven
after the establishing of Medina, and this was
set by the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and
And the month that the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
sent him to
what? The Messenger of Allah Subhan Allah. He did, He sent the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that the main event that occurred was during the month of Rajab.
During the month of Rajab, what is specific about the month of Raja
Raja is considered,
the month of Rajab is the month amongst the month, two months of
I shouldn't. So this was the
of course, you have the four months. The three at the end of the year Muslim calendar,
are another side the two the two at the end of the Muslim calendar. Most people when they think about the sacred month, people are sometimes I'm going to ask, what are the sacred months? I showed them? What do people think of sacred month? What is the first answer that you think comes up?
Ramadan, we're not talking about in terms of
the month of the blessed month of Ramadan, as a month of worship, but there are four months that are known as assured home, three of them together. And they are the two months that are generally the beginnings of Hajj, when people start going to make Hajj they leave and also the month of hajj and after the mental hygiene, what
Muharram after the month of hajj is Maha RAM. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not send
the Companions, he when he sent the Companions, he knew that it was he sent them before the mentor Raja.
But he also knew that this these were months, that fighting then was forbidden. And this, these were the months that, you know, people would travel, people would travel and they would feel safe traveling, whether it's for business, or whether it's for hygiene, ombre, or they can wherever they want to make whatever they want to do you have enemies Your enemies will not attack. Attack you This was of course remnants of anybody know where this come from? Is this an Arab tradition? Right? Yes, of course. This is from
you know, from the, from the teachings during the time, when Allah subhanho wa Taala sent Prophet
Ibrahim and prophets, Ismail to the Arabs. And of course, part of what they were worshipping, was a continuation of that. So when the messenger of Allah Allah, Allah said he chose to live in the Jash. And then that's why some of the scholars have called this the they know they call this Surya, the lead in the Jash. Abdullah ibn digital sad. And the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent
him. And some of the narrations mentioned 12. And others have mentioned aid and Allah subhanaw knows best. And they worked with.
They were they were 12. And the Companions didn't have many camels, right? So sometimes when they would send, who are how many? How if you have 12 people, the best thing to do is to have 12 cameras. But we have to if you don't have 12 cameras in order to keep everything running smoothly, and now people are getting tired and so forth. How many cameras do you need, you need at least six? You need at least half of them. Half of them having cameras are possible, right? Just like during the Battle of the battle button. They used to take turns, riding the camels and so to speed things up to give people rest. You walk a little bit and then you get to ride and you walk and you ride so you switch
off. And that's how they used to do it in those days if they didn't have a lot of camels to start with.
And at the beginning of Islam, the Muslims did not have a lot so the prophets of Allah Allah some also took that he took him precautionary measures.
He told them the lumberjack said takes Take this letter of mine
Take this letter of mine
I want you to travel and go out for three days.
Take this letter of mine I want you to travel for three days.
And after three days I want you to open it inside it will be instructions on where to go and where you need to go. Why didn't the Prophet salallahu Salam tell them right there and then
the keep it a secret
because it's very difficult to keep something a secret, unless you take precautionary measures. Because many people, especially, guys, if your wife asked you something like,
Hey, honey, where are you guys going?
Like, where are you guys going? I can't tell you how come on. Like, I'm your wife, you think I want to tell anyone?
Right? And so she might end up telling somebody else who had comes to her, probably her best friend says, Hey, where's your husband going? And I know, I'm not supposed to tell you. No, no, come on. I'm your best friend. You think I'm going to tell anybody? Right? Next thing, you know, the whole city knows.
Right? Because everybody's everybody's best friend. And it's all connected. The next thing you know, everybody knows. Everybody knows. So the messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah. So this is one of the one of the lessons that we should take. And when we're doing things, if something needs to be a secret, take precautionary measures, where the Companions not trustworthy. They were extremely trustworthy people. They were extremely trustworthy and honest, but you take all precautionary measures, especially when it comes to information and you know, warfare and things like that. Where it's dangerous for the society because there are Muslims, the Muslims, and they're not they're not
Muslim, that people hate the Muslims. There are people who, you know, are hypocrites, right, and there are enemies. And there are other people who are spies, who tried to listen in also, who were they want to get any information.
The gods send it to Mecca. So the messenger of Allah has made it he had a letter written and sealed up, he told the build up in the cache, that means those who are going with him, none of them know where they're going.
So if somebody were to ask, even if they wanted to tell, they couldn't tell.
He says, After you travel for three days, you open up in there you will find instructions on where to go and what to do. So the messenger of allah
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent them, they went, he went with 12 others, the total, the total.
Were 12 Amongst
them, why do you rune. And so these were the people who,
amongst them, of course,
amongst them, were companions, of course, great companions of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe, Salam trusted, they all were very trustworthy.
But the Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah was also very, very,
And he never wanted to force someone to do something if they didn't really feel like it.
You know, so it was somebody wants to do something. And if you don't feel if you're not 100%,
if you're not 100% in agreement, you don't tend to give your full out effort. Right, so when the messenger of Allah Lipson, Abdullah, Josh, and they went for three days, they opened up the letter. And what did the letter say? The letter said, I want you to read Nakhla
and go and see the movements of the caravan of the Mechanoids American caravan,
there was no order to kill to, to to raid any caravan whatsoever. And they were not worthy. It was it was for information gathering,
where it was only for information gathering. And it was only for this purpose, and they were not allowed to they were ordered to attack anyone get the information, see where their movements are. And then you come back and bring me the information. And that was it. For the Messenger of Allah Subhan. Allah also said, if anybody does not want to go,
but you're free to come back. If there's anyone there that doesn't want to go, they're free to come back. You don't have to go if you don't want to go. And of course, they all agree. Why did the prophets I will say that, because
when they left, they didn't know where they were going.
Now that they know where they're going, and now you know where you're going, do you want to continue with it or not? Do you want to continue with it or not?
This is something that's very, very important.
To help, you know, especially when you have when you have a project every step of the way.
Whether it's a project, whether it's a campaign, to make sure that people are with you, and also that people understand
and also that everyone is on the same page
to make sure that everyone's on the same page and that's very something that's very, very important.
And that's why when they met and that there's no misunderstanding every
step of the way. Because when you go too far, and people have different perceptions,
and ideas, and goals and objectives, then that's when later on you go too far and you never took care of it from the beginning. You might have people who are with you, who may cause problems. So that's why you have to be transparent and also take care. Make sure that everyone is on the same page. And this is later on we'll learn
from another example, this was when the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to his brother, when he was marching to bother
the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hears about the news of the people that are coming. The Dragons have come out with an army.
A large army, he does not know exactly. He doesn't know he does not know yet. Their exact numbers, but he knows that Mecca has come out with all of their men,
with their fighters or their other fighters and warriors are coming or coming out. They're coming out to meet the Muslims. And so the Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah was someone who was marching out with the companions. Then we had, you know, even the unsavoury those who are with him on the way to better when he went out, they didn't go out with the intention to fight. They were only going to attack the caravan of Abu Sophia. So the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, after he updates the companions that you know what we have, there are things that are happening right now. And
this is what's going on. So what do you guys think I should do? What do you think we should do?
So he says, As you do either you or your nurse
Ushiro either Yeah, you heard us, like, let you know, inform me, let me know. What do you guys think we should do? What do you guys think we should do? So he's consulting all of them.
And make that enamel he stands up and he speaks
gives a powerful talk that he's with him without we're all with your messenger of Allah. Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu stands up and speaks. Abu Bakr stands up. Omar gives his idea. And so three people three or three of the most prominent people amongst the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have spoken and everybody doesn't say everyone is silent. Everybody seems to be in agreement.
But the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a Hebrew Allah Yohannes
Shiro C'mon, guys advise me. Everyone's thinking, what else can we say? Everything that was said, has already been said. In fact, you know, the prophets of Allah, they know that some of the companions and woman mentioned some of the details later on in sha Allah have exactly what they said. But he keeps on saying a shooter. I know you're not a hero, Allah, You heard us Come on. Advise me, everybody, everyone advised me.
And nobody says anything.
And so finally, the leader, the unsolved sad, stands up.
And he says,
kinda country Dhonielle sort of law it says, If you want us to speak is the Yes, of course. He says yes, of course, I want you to speak. And of course, he gave his famous speech, that which we will mentioned later on when before the battle, but the right now what I want to mention is, he spoke to them, why did he speak to why did he? Why did he just take the words of these companions? Who spoke at the beginning? The reason why was because they were the ones who they were from from Mecca. He wanted to hear from the answer
he wants to hear and why did you want to hear from the answer? He wanted to make sure that everybody's on the same page. He wanted to make sure that everyone's on the same page, especially when things have changed. Like right now, we went out for the, for the caravan. And when everyone came out, they agreed to do the caregiver kit, they agreed to go out for the care of that. And now things have changed a little bit. But this is something that is that they weren't expecting, that they were not expecting. So the message of Allah salaam, again consults with them. And so the reason why he consulted with them because now there's a there's a possibility of misunderstanding. Because
when they agreed
in beta tilaka, better Athenia the second way
that they would protect the profits of when the messenger of Allah arrives in Medina, they would protect him just like they would protect their own family and children. Right. Where's this?
In Medina, where are they now? They're outside Medina already. So just in case
So just so that nobody can say, Nobody might, somebody might come up, come out and say, You know what we didn't agree to help protect you. We agreed that if you go to Medina will protect you. We will fight outside Medina. So this is like just a small point, you would think that everybody is in agreement right? Now, but the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very meticulous, when he used to do things. He wanted to make sure that there's no possibility of misunderstanding here. Are you guys okay? The Mahabharata with me, but I want to hear from the answer. Also. So here, when he sends up delivery, Josh and his men, they came out, they didn't know where to go, they
didn't know where they were going. So that's why part of that message in the letter was that now that you know where you're going,
if you don't feel comfortable going, you're free to go back to Medina, you don't you're free to you don't have to join. Why, because when you came out, you didn't know what the reason where you were going and what you were going to do. But now you know how dangerous it is, and why you know where you're actually going, who you're actually looking for. Maybe some people might feel uncomfortable. So if you're uncomfortable, you're free to go back. Because we want everyone to be on the same page. And we want everyone to understand that, you know, you're in it 100% You're not just oh, I didn't know we were going to okay, I went but I think that this is what we're going to be doing.
Right? And then people might back out. And so what lessons should we take the lesson that we take from here.
And we learn whenever you have, you know, like an event, for example, or a project or anything.
If there's a change in it, make sure you consult with the people to let them know that that let people know. So that everyone's gonna be on the same page. That you know, so yeah, they and this is, you know, as these are the lessons of leadership, from the messenger of allah sallallahu wasallam. And even though you put your trust in Allah, right, you put your trust in Allah. But the Messenger of Allah, Allah did not act haphazardly. Look at the the steps that he took, he wrote a letter, and he made sure that it was sealed up, nobody read it until they left, there was no possibility of any of those soldiers
telling their parents or their wives, or their friends, because if their friends were to ask them, Hey, where are you going?
They don't even know where they're going.
But when now when they're far away, you're not worried about that anymore information. They're not in the city anymore.
They already know that in three days journey, you're far enough already. Right? You're far enough where you're ahead. You're ahead if let's say there's a spy, some somebody comes back, the people who have been sent are far enough, where if someone were to be sent after that, after them, they wouldn't be able to catch up to tell the people in Mecca.
Because there are 333 days ahead of you. There is not like nowadays, what do you what nowadays? What would you do?
hey, listen, listen, listen, guys would look, look, look what I got, I got some information for you. Immediately the information goes, but the those days, information did not move as fast. And that's why the profits of a lot as I've made sure that three days there's a reason for three days. Because even if somebody finds out later on, let's say somebody goes back three days. Somebody says no. And then he knows he know, I know exactly where they're going. Okay? I know exactly where they're going. They're going to Nakhla how many days is going to take him to get back to Medina
three days, right? And now they come back how many days is he had
six days, the people who have gone there already six days ahead. Six days ahead any information that people Medina make some spies or anyone may know, they wouldn't be able to send it, they wouldn't be they wouldn't need to catch up with them at all. Because if you're going really fast, it takes just about a week to get from Medina to Mecca. And those guys would have been already there if the information were to come back if somebody were to know already so look at them, even the the planning of the Messenger of Allah. So Allah Allah has was so meticulous, he's so careful when he used to do things, and that's a lesson for us in the USA and everything that you do, whether it's
business, you know, you might think oh, let's you know business. Let's not let's you know, for our trust in Allah right. But what is putting your trust in the profit? Some of them not for this question, not trust in Allah. There is no one who put their put his trust in a lot more than the profit of the letters. There's no one. But that's what it means to put your trust in Allah to do all that you can to take all precautionary measures to the best that you can
And then you make dua to Allah subhanho wa taala. And you put your trust in Allah. You don't just like act haphazardly and be careless. And like you open you do something and open a business or you're doing something
don't make haphazard, take off the all measures to perfect it because that's where the bulk is. It's in the sun, and perfecting and making sure that you have excellence in whatever you're doing. So the messenger of Allah some live sense of doing the Gaston is meant
when they go there. When they arrive.
They see a caravan.
There is a caravan.
And this caravan, it's a small caravan.
It's not a big caravan. But what's the what are they supposed to do? They're supposed to take this information to see the whereabouts of the caravan. And where they're going any caravan that's coming out anyone that's coming in, whether it's coming from Yemen or going south in the north, to bring that information.
But something happened before this also, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself. He had he remember I said he used to send himself with and one of these expeditions.
And one of these expeditions
the previous expedition that was before the expedition Abdullah having a Jayesh they had heard a caravan was coming out of they were you know come coming out of Mecca. And the messenger of Allah Allah Allah Allah some went right and but they miss the character Mr. Care about, but he took the opportunity to do it, to make treaties and agreements with the people in the surrounding areas. So the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had already been looking after seek seeking out the caravans. And he was actually going to read some of these caravans, why, because most of the caravans that were being used, the money and the wealth that was being used to furnish the caravan,
like this caravan of Sofia, they were taking from the wealth of the Muslims, the money and the wealth, and the property of the Muslims, that the Americans had taken from the Americans taken from them when they had left him to, to make Hijra. And remember, the Mexicans they made sure they, they didn't allow anyone to, they try to keep people from leaving, but if you left,
and you if you left, they would take in confiscate your property.
And this is what they would, some of them, you know, they were they were forced to leave everything that they had. And so, Abdullah Jash, he sees this as an opportunity
he sees as an opportunity, but
he knows also,
he knows dilemna, Josh also realizes that, you know, if, if we don't attack them,
if we don't take them, what's going to happen, and they're gonna go, they're going to be able to make it back to Mecca.
Back to Mecca, in time, but he says, but they decided to attack the caravan anyways, even though it was during the month, one of the one of the month of the winner of the sacred mountain in which fighting the ban was not permissible, like fighting them was not permissible. So they attack the caravan.
And in the process, they killed
the caravan consisted of just, you know, things that were
the caravan itself consists of, I think, for people amongst them.
Those who were the caravan or the Meccans it was hard for me and he was the one that was killed. He was the one that was killed. And that was made him nagila immune Mahira and also his brother, no for them, no for living, the luck and a lack of education, and that the Muslims capture two of them, and they killed one. And one of them escaped, and he fled to Mecca.
He fled to Mecca. So the caravan was attacked, one person was killed, two were captured, one fled.
Now this is a this is a very, very big thing.
This is a very, very big thing. And so what were the methods? They were of course trying to do
They were trying to spread propaganda against the Muslims already saying that the Muslims were this. This is the beginning of course, about the prophets of Allah and spreading lies and so forth about the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So now the Messenger of Allah, the messenger of allah sallallahu. So, and this lesson is very, very important, okay?
And I'm mentioning this because it's very relevant to what's going on right now in in the world, right now in Philistine in Palestine.
It's very relevant to what's going on in Palestine right now.
And the reason is, because why? Because after this incident,
after this particular incident,
the Meccans started spreading lies about the Muslims are saying stuff about the Muslims say, Look, they are a people. In other words, they in our time, you would call them what? They would probably call them terrorists. Right? Okay, so one of them was killed, and he wasn't supposed to be killed. And this was a big thing. Why? Why was it a big thing? The reason was a big thing was because you're not allowed to fight
during the Ashura,
so how so now the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam also sees that dilemna Jash also has come with two prisoners.
And he is very angry. Why is the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam angry?
Excuse me, why is he very angry?
He actually refuses to accept, he says, you know, refuses to accept the prisoners.
He refuses to accept the prisoners. Why? And Abdullah Jash and those who were there
they were very sad. Let me get some water in a second
so they were they were very, very sad.
We were extremely sad because the Messenger of Allah was hand was was was very angry at them. Because they were not allowed to attack the caravan. They were only ordered to
And so what do you do?
The Mexicans have started speaking about, you know, spreading lies, spreading propaganda against the Muslims. Look at these people. They don't respect our way of life.
They're fighting they shed blood in our shoulder in the month in the sacred months.
So how do you handle this?
Right because this is what the propaganda this is what people are saying, Look what happened on what's January in
they're like spreading propaganda, excuse me against that already. Like, like the Muslims are, you did this and they did that. So how do you respond?
How do you respond in the Messenger of Allah Subhan Allah Allah was very angry because they weren't supposed to do this. This was a mistake on their part.
And so finally,
Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals a verse
and when they will listen, this is Sharla because because this is where the lesson how to respond.
Allah subhana wa Tada says, Yes, I know Nick Anisha had her army retired in FY
Yes. Aluna. Yes, Aluna Ganesha Halal haram. They asked you about the sacred months and fighting them in
full detail of V can say to them
fighting their own is great. That means fighting there is a great sin. It's wrong. It's wrong. Yes.
quilty the denial and V can either well sudden do nonsevere Allah will go from V. Well my student haram ways Raju Ali Haman who Akbar Allah
will Pfitzner to Akbar Amina Katrina.
Allah subhana wa say to them all in the Meccans of saying this and saying that you don't believe in our way of life. You don't respect our way of life. But Allah says, say yes, that's wrong. But what did you guys do before that was subdued answer? Videla people in Mecca, especially Muslims, right? Those who are calling to La ilaha illallah their rejection and their cover and how they are treated people in a domestic law
Hello, I'm in Makkah the sacred, the most sacred place in which they themselves according to their, their own, their own beliefs, they had like sort of like
a bill of rights or constitutional rights that they had given to people they had agreed that nobody would be oppressed, like for example, as the, the remnants of, or the,
the result of healthful football. They agree that no one in Mecca should be oppressed. And no one in Mecca should be killed or harmed and so forth. This is a place of peace.
But who did they whenever you accept Islam? What did they used to do?
If they if you accepted Islam, they don't give you the same rights. And that's why when the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was coming back from five
when he was coming back from five alma mater Magna, Id agreed to sponsor the Messenger of Allah to protect the Messenger of Allah to offer his protection to the messenger of allah sallallahu wasallam. And he was going to bring in and I bring him in, and Abuja went to him when he heard this and he said, Are you muslim? I mean, have a monogamous? And he said, Have you a pastor? Did
you pass? He says, No, it's rather He said, he's not Muslim. But he said, Okay, then we'll honor your protection.
Why did he ask that question? Because if he would have said he was Muslim, I would happen. No, no, no, we don't honor that we don't. We don't apply these rules to non Muslim to Muslims. If you're a Muslim, forget about the Geneva Convention or anything like that. It doesn't apply to you. Either you have this double standard. If you're Muslim, there are different rules that are applied to you that you don't get this right. To bring people in to protect them. No, that's why he says no, no, I'm not Muslim. That's why I'm not Alma kind of an idea. He says, No, I'm not Muslim. Because Okay, well under your protection. So the Muslims will ever be just because they were Muslims. They were
not respected. They were just they were killed, in fact, tortured for believing in Allah subhanaw taala, like the likes of Somalia, and the acid, and they were tortured. And this is something that you are not allowed to do that too. Especially in Mecca. They were starved, how would they start? You start with people, you owe the entire staff, your own people, because they're Muslims, who in shape and, you know, the sanctions against the Muslims. And she never be tolerated. They start the Muslims to the point where the Muslims had nothing to eat.
The embargo and the sanctions against them were so severe, that many of the scars I mentioned as a result of that this is why I would not live in hijo de la rana. That's why they they both passed away as a result of the hardship. So the three years of the sanctions against the Muslims, he started the Muslims, the babies were crying women, and they were the babies and the children were starving. But they didn't care. They didn't allow anyone to visit them. They didn't allow anyone to marry from them. They did
things that were against their own principles. And then we're doing this in the most sacred places, going against their own sacred principles that they considered, they gave rise to everyone except for Muslims. And so and then they expelled the people also from it expelling the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
And you're not supposed to do something like that. In an Arab culture,
in every single tribe and clan was your you know, that's, that's where you got your protection. You don't just kick people off to another tribe, that's totally against what they believed in.
You know, your views from your official retry, they used to say, also the hacker volume and elbow room, help your brother whether he's right or wrong, if he's from your own tribe, you help him. And that's what they used to say in the prophets of Allah. And of course, flip this back and he said the same thing. But he put a different meaning to it later on in Islam in that famous Hadith, but this is what they used to believe. But they were going against their own principles, their own way of life. And they had what they did was before they were they did and harming the Muslims.
was contradictory to what they were saying all along. So Allah has saying, we'll start doing ncbd Allah he will go from being well Mr. Raju and even work for Akbar, Allah are all the things that you did is greater in the sight of Allah will fitna that you causing all this mischief?
Corruption, killing all the Pfitzner and you have goofer rejection of Allah Subhana Allah
Akbar and Allah is greater, likable, meaner. Putin is greater than even killing itself what you've got what you've done before that. So this is this this thing that happened here once. In other words, that's why they're saying like, Hey, do you know what the people did? Look what they did?
Look what they did
on October 7, right? Was it October 7?
Yeah, last December already? How many days? What's
October like what they did? You guys, but you know what?
It didn't just start October 7.
Well, how about Hamas? Well, what border but for Hamas?
It gives the day they say before? Yes.
All the times before that what you did before? Well, what about you? How about the people in the West Bank? How about the seven years before that? And how about all the killings of the other children before even this? This happened? What was your excuse for that?
What's your excuse? So ALLAH SubhanA wa sallam, this is how you answer them. This is what happened they will bring all this propaganda against the Muslims. And so the Prophet SAW Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed this,
this verse, this as well as Aluna, you cartoon competitor, Euro Duker and Dena, Camila Safar, and they will continue to fight you, until they until you leave your religion if they're if they're able to. Okay, they'll continue to fight until you leave your deen. Because that's what they want you to do. The only way. The only way that they'll stop is if you abandon Islam
is abandoned Islam.
Because it's about
it's about you holding on God and because you're a Muslim. That's why
because you're a Muslim.
And so that's why
all of these things are happening. The propaganda that was spoken about that happened.
How about all the things that they did was so much worse than that? Nobody's gonna talk about that. It didn't start this now. It didn't start with
it, it started before this. And then the Prophet saw after this reversal revealed the love energy for so happy. Because Allah Subhana Allah revealed this verse, and the prophets of Allah and took the prisoners. He took those prisoners instead of before he said, No, I'm not gonna take them. And of course, he took those prisoners and you know, once you have somebody prisoner, then the other people have to ransom
right. So what do you do?
He says, the world they said, Okay, now, when this was revealed, then this was real to the Muslims, of course, and also the non Muslims. So let them know, look, we did before this all these times, going as their own way of life. What do they say? Like these people don't believe in our way of life. That's what they say, right?
What is your way of life?
oppression, injustice, killing children. That's your way of life. Because you are doing that before all of this happen.
You're already doing that. So don't bring this. But hey, it's because of this incident or that incident.
that's why it's very important for us to learn the lessons of the zero the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will continue again in sha Allah that next one next next session Sharla will be speaking about the some of the other events right before but the change in the pemula And also, we spoke a little bit about I think, in fifth class already, I think, but also inshallah will speak about some the significance of of that, and also some of the things that and other things that also led up to it. And so this is one of the major events that actually led up to it. And this was what's used this this incident was used by, by, by Bucha has to incite the most disbelievers against the Muslims
also, because it is liquidated, liquidated to
me and enough. So this was known as
we ask Allah subhanho wa taala. It teaches that which benefits and benefits from what I was taught us was so a lot of Amina Mohamed salah.
