Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:01:30--> 00:01:31

says in Surah Tilford

00:01:32--> 00:01:35

the first ayah the first verse

00:01:36--> 00:01:39

in Fatah, nella Kapha.

00:01:41--> 00:01:46

Vina Indeed, we have given you

00:01:47--> 00:01:49

the clear victory.

00:01:51--> 00:02:00

We have given you the clear victory. What victory was this? That happened during the time of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:02:01--> 00:02:05

The Companions defeat an army.

00:02:07--> 00:02:14

How many soldiers did they captured? What country or what city did they conquer?

00:02:16--> 00:02:21

Allah subhana wa tada says this is a clear victory. What is this clear victory.

00:02:22--> 00:02:28

When we look at the ASVAB and knows all the reasons for the revelation of this ayah

00:02:29--> 00:02:33

this victory is the victory of peace.

00:02:35--> 00:02:36

This victory

00:02:37--> 00:02:50

that Allah subhanho wa Taala calls that have been a clear victory came after the Treaty of Alou. They be here in the Treaty of who they be.

00:02:51--> 00:03:09

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam agreed with the Mexicans and Porush to have an armistice. In other words, peace, and no fighting, they had been fighting before this, in the Battle of buzzer in the battle.

00:03:11--> 00:03:19

And also in the following battles that came and then peace occurred.

00:03:21--> 00:03:23

This piece was called fat Hammurabi. Now,

00:03:25--> 00:03:26

that's why in Islam,

00:03:27--> 00:03:44

the true victory, the clear victory is the victory of peace, in which you avoid confrontation and avoid fight. And this was very beneficial for the Muslims.

00:03:45--> 00:03:51

Because after this, after this agreement, or this pact and treaty,

00:03:53--> 00:03:56

there was peace in the Arabian Peninsula.

00:03:57--> 00:04:09

Anyone who wanted to join the Muslims, they can ally themselves with the Muslims. Anyone who did not want to join the Muslims, they could ally themselves with the Mexicans.

00:04:11--> 00:04:34

But anyone who allied with one or the other, they had to respect this peace treaty. And because of that, over 1400 people went to Mecca to perform Umrah. And this was when the Treaty of whoa de Bie occurred because they could not go into Mecca. The Meccans prevented them from going in.

00:04:35--> 00:04:42

But they gave them provisions to go next year. But during that trip,

00:04:43--> 00:04:53

there were 1400 people, Muslims who joined the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in less than two years later.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

The next trip that they went after the oma the following year.

00:05:00--> 00:05:15

The next trip the major trip that they went, they had over 10,000 Muslims who went back to Mecca, just in less than two years. Why? Because so many people accepted Islam.

00:05:17--> 00:05:24

What is this show? This incident shows that Islam prospers in peace and not in war.

00:05:26--> 00:05:32

Islam prospers in peace. Why? because more people accepted Islam.

00:05:33--> 00:05:44

During the few months after the treaty, then over 19 years of Dawa in Mecca and Medina

00:05:46--> 00:05:49

when there was peace, Islam spread.

00:05:50--> 00:06:02

And this is just one of the lessons that we can take from the Sierra or the biography of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:06:07--> 00:06:59

Let me remind you, that the glorious Koran is not a book of science, as CENZ but it is a book of signs, F, i, g, and s. It's a book of IR, how much time do you spend reading your Quran every day? How much time do you spend in Salah if you want to be the best you carry out the work of dow you become the best, Allah does not count the number of times you repent. Allah looks at the quality of your Toba and not the quantity of your total if you are able to seek knowledge and you choose not to you carry the faults in Islam came to establish a civil society. This material world is nothing but a test. This grant is a miracle of miracles. It's a miracle of all times.

00:07:00--> 00:07:09

Islam and focus tonight at 11:30pm in Saudi Arabia and 12:30am up on piece TV.

00:07:12--> 00:07:14

Yeah.

00:07:22--> 00:07:26

You as a person or a mirror that reflects your faith.

00:07:30--> 00:07:33

your deeds are a reflection of what you believe.

00:07:35--> 00:07:50

The fasting, the Hajj, the prayer. join up. Good Rahim McCarthy in reflections on Islam every Sunday at 8pm Saudi Arabia and 9pm UAE on peace TV,

00:07:56--> 00:07:59

Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.

00:08:00--> 00:08:28

Narrated Abu Musa, may Allah be pleased with him. Some people asked Allah His Messenger, may peace be upon him, whose Islam is the best? That is, who is a very good Muslim, he replied. One who avoids harming the Muslims with his tongue and hands. Sahih al Bukhari

00:08:31--> 00:08:34

book of faith, added number 11

00:08:38--> 00:08:42

truth is hidden, misleading politicians create confusion

00:08:43--> 00:08:48

where truth is hidden. lack of knowledge and wisdom cause upheaval and commotion.

00:08:49--> 00:08:54

Through this hidden mind flip scripture and twisted facts emerge.

00:08:55--> 00:08:56

This way winning

00:08:57--> 00:08:59

creates false propaganda,

00:09:01--> 00:09:06

chaos, disorder and turmoil in our lives and the world.

00:09:08--> 00:09:11

But is there anyone with courage and wisdom?

00:09:14--> 00:09:16

What is the truth and

00:09:23--> 00:09:24

God, it's your right to

00:09:27--> 00:09:35

watch truth prevail and lies perish in truth exposed by Dr. Zakir nygh. Next on peace TV.

00:09:42--> 00:09:45

During this occasion also

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

during the time in which the treaty was being agreed upon, in the meeting with the Messenger of Allah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam and suhaila an AMA representing the Quran Mecca during

00:10:00--> 00:10:28

This time before right before this, when the Prophet Salam was prevented from going to Mecca, and first of all, they were not supposed to prevent the Muslims. This was an inalienable right of anyone who wanted to come into Mecca peacefully, to make omura the lesser pilgrimage. They were supposed to be allowed to go in freely, but the Mexicans, they went against their own tradition, and prevented the Muslims from going in.

00:10:30--> 00:10:47

So, during this time, the one of the reasons why the Meccans one did piece also was because of war, their economy was in shambles, the trade routes from Mecca to a sham,

00:10:49--> 00:11:03

but they were being impeded, because there was no peace. And that's why they also wanted peace. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, the Meccans

00:11:04--> 00:11:33

the operation Mecca, if only they would have allowed me to freely call people to Islam, they would have stood to gain they would have gained in position and everything else. But they tried to prevent the profit salon from doing so. And they expelled the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam. And because of the war and so forth, their economy was in shambles. It reminds us of the time that we are living in right now.

00:11:35--> 00:11:46

In just the few years of the incident of the attacks in Iraq, and so forth, the United States of America,

00:11:47--> 00:11:52

they have spent billions and billions of dollars

00:11:54--> 00:11:55

into this war.

00:11:56--> 00:11:57

Recently, and just

00:11:59--> 00:12:00

I read an article,

00:12:01--> 00:12:03

and they were calculating

00:12:04--> 00:12:17

the amount of money and what you could have done with that money, instead of making bombs and guns and taking care of the troops and so forth. If they were to use that money,

00:12:18--> 00:12:24

to spread peace instead of war, you know, what they could have done? You know, what America could have an

00:12:26--> 00:12:31

America could have alleviated poverty from the face of this earth.

00:12:34--> 00:12:50

Not a single poor person, on the face of this earth, instead of using it for war, if they used it for peace. Imagine no poor person on the face of this earth, and everybody has enough to eat.

00:12:52--> 00:12:57

They could have alleviated poverty, from the face of this earth with that same amount of money.

00:12:59--> 00:13:07

And that this is what also happened to the price because of the war. And so in the ear of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:13:08--> 00:13:09

There are lessons

00:13:10--> 00:13:11

and Islam

00:13:12--> 00:13:56

is the religion of Allah subhana wa Taala. And it is the final religion revealed to mankind, there will not be another prophet who will be sent to us until the day of judgment, with the exception of Prophet Isa Allah He Salam who will come back and rule by the Sharia of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam except for Jesus has returned. But the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallaahu, less than the legislation will be used, and it will be ongoing until the day of judgment. And so the lessons in the CRR in in the Quran are applicable,

00:13:57--> 00:14:06

even in our times. Now, what are some of the other lessons that we can extract from the zero the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Let's start from the beginning of Revelation.

00:14:08--> 00:14:10

The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:14:12--> 00:14:22

was in Mecca. in Mecca, there was great oppression, the rich and wealthy the aristocrats in Mecca, they took advantage of the poor.

00:14:23--> 00:14:27

There was widespread oppression, widespread lewdness,

00:14:29--> 00:14:39

so much so that they even used to make the wife circumambulate around the Kaaba, naked, not a single clothing on them.

00:14:41--> 00:14:45

Their morals were decorated.

00:14:46--> 00:14:47

And so

00:14:49--> 00:14:51

because of all the oppression

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

because of all the evils, especially the ship, the worshipping of idols and so forth in Mecca,

00:15:01--> 00:15:20

A person who has of the fitrah In other words, a person who is in his natural state towards good, like the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam was, he saw people being oppressed, he saw people being harmed. He saw the rich taken advantage of the poor. And he saw

00:15:21--> 00:15:23

the way the society was.

00:15:25--> 00:15:41

When he was near around the age of 4040 years of age, he started to seclude himself. Why? To reflect upon this society because he wanted to change and do something about

00:15:43--> 00:15:56

you naturally, somebody who is of good heart, when they see evil, they naturally want to change. But how. So when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was at the age of 40.

00:15:57--> 00:15:59

Living in this society?

00:16:01--> 00:16:09

Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed to him the first verses of the first Hurrah that was revealed.

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

below him in a shaytani r rajim Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim.

00:16:18--> 00:16:23

Allah this mirror beacon lady Holla Holla

00:16:25--> 00:16:30

I mean Allah, a Torah wa bukan

00:16:31--> 00:16:34

levy mabin.

00:16:42--> 00:16:51

These were the first verses revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The first word in the Quran that was revealed was

00:16:53--> 00:16:55

read recite,

00:16:56--> 00:17:12

Quran this nirach Deacon levy holla. Read and recite in the name of your Lord who create this word caused a revolution in the Arabian Peninsula.

00:17:13--> 00:17:19

The Bedouin Arabs, who are looked down upon as second class people.

00:17:21--> 00:17:27

They rose from the desert, and they became the scholars of the world.

00:17:28--> 00:17:35

Because of this mirrabooka, the hallak read and recite education

00:17:36--> 00:17:45

is of utmost importance. In Islam. Read and Write in they were an illiterate nation, education.

00:17:46--> 00:18:22

It's so important to learn how to read and write that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when the Muslims captured 70 of the prisoners after the battle or battle with when they captured 70 of the prisoners. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam allowed them to ransom themselves, their families could pay for it, but there were some people who could not afford to pay the ransom to be freed after their capture. So what happened? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said,

00:18:24--> 00:18:39

if you teach 10 people from the children of Medina or from the Muslims tend to learn how to read and write proficiently to learn how to read, then they would be free.

00:18:41--> 00:19:27

The people in Medina, they were farmers, many of them did not know how to read the Meccans. They were merchants and businessmen. So most of them knew how to read. But after this, after this, because you know, if you are captured, if you get to teach 10 people, and they know how to read correctly, properly, you get freed you want them to learn as quickly as possible, you're going to be the best teacher you can be so that this guy will learn quickly, you get 10 people and you get to go home. So that shows also the importance of reading and writing and education, especially at a time that we're living in when there's trials and tribulations. There are evils in the society,

00:19:27--> 00:19:38

degradation of the society and so forth to see what happens. Education is very, very important. And that's why the first if that was revealed was across Europe, the calorie holla.

00:19:40--> 00:19:46

And then, what is the next surah that was revealed after that?

00:19:47--> 00:19:52

Allah Subhana Allah after you learn how to read, you're right you educate yourself.

00:19:53--> 00:19:58

What do we do? A loss of data Allah revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

In surah, Al madatha

00:20:04--> 00:20:07

the first few is of that Sora Yeah.

00:20:08--> 00:20:09

You had

00:20:13--> 00:20:13

the

00:20:14--> 00:20:21

backup backup there was the backup. Here we are Rogers, you're

00:20:24--> 00:20:33

stuck here. While you're up Be careful spear. Allah subhana wa tada revealed to the Prophet sallallahu. Yeah.

00:20:35--> 00:20:46

Oh, he who is covered up in your blanket. Now it's time to sleep is over, get up and worn. Get up and deliver the message.

00:20:48--> 00:20:54

You have to get up and deliver the message. The Prophet Salam said badly windy weather

00:20:56--> 00:21:48

convey what you have, from me, even if it's one verse only. So the next step, in a society, especially in a non Muslim society, most people fail to understand. They don't realize that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, for the first 13 years of the Dharma, the first 13 years after revelation, he was living in a non Muslim society, he was living in a non Muslim society. So the lessons that you can extract from that period, they are invaluable. They are precious, this is something that we as Muslims, especially those living in India, in the West, in Europe, in Australia, or anywhere else, where you are a minority, extract the lessons from there, because the

00:21:48--> 00:22:08

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Muslims, they were living as minorities in a non Muslim society. So we as Muslims, if we are living in such a society, we have to convey the message of a lot of others in America,

00:22:09--> 00:22:16

in America, I don't know how it is if it's similar, probably here in America, the average

00:22:18--> 00:22:19

American

00:22:20--> 00:22:26

sees over 3000 ads are adverts

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

a day

00:22:30--> 00:22:38

somebody's trying to tell you that you need this and you need that. You have to think this way and that way. So you end up

00:22:39--> 00:22:42

buying things you do not need.

00:22:43--> 00:23:11

With money you don't have just like the previous speaker spoke about to impress people you don't even like that's what they want you to do. But you know, as Muslims, we don't go into depth. We don't borrow money unless it's an emergency. Unless we really need it. We don't borrow to get things we don't even need to raise our lifestyle. No, you borrow when it's an emergency.
