Today we want to look at one of the most decisive battles in Islamic history. And that is your MO for con the battle and better.
Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah where Allah He was happy he were men who Allah. Ramadan always brings amazing changes in the lives of the believers.
And it was in the second year after the Hijrah
that Abu Sufyan, the leader of Mecca,
gathered together the goods of the believers that they had left in Mecca, and made a caravan to go to Syria. And some estimates say it was around 50,000 dinars. So this is not something trivial. This is a major amount of money. This is an economic move, being made against the new Muslim community. When the Prophet peace be upon him heard about this, he gathered together 313 believers, and they went in order to take back their goods that had been stolen from their homes in Mecca. Abu Sufyan very cunningly was able to escape to Syria. And on his way back hearing about the Prophet peace be upon him, he called to Mecca. And suddenly, instead of a caravan 1000 warriors were facing the
believers 313 And so it was at Beddit that these two forces met this is your mill fork on the 17th of Ramadan. Now you would expect that people are sleeping in Ramadan, they are fasting so how could they get up? How could they struggle? How could they make decisive changes? But know Allah azza wa jal put it in this month for a purpose. And it wasn't the 17th of Ramadan, that Allah separated truth from falsehood gave victory to the believers, and began a chain of movements that would affect the whole planet in the month of Ramadan, the time of striving, and the time of decisive action. This is so important to us today. Because we are faced with so many challenges internally and
externally. And we need to look at Ramadan as a chance to renew ourselves and as a chance to stand against evil and falsehood and a chance to gain that pleasure of the Creator of the heavens and the earth.
