The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had promised his companions Radi Allahu Anhu that they would go for Umrah. And then he saw in a dream it salat wa salam that they went for Umrah, and he informed his companions that they were going to go for Umrah and all of them became very happy. Finally they're going to go back to the base of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tala, it was customary that Quraysh being the caretakers of the Kaaba, that they would let anyone who wants to come for a Motorhead, they would let them come in, but due to the fact that they had been at war, and there have been problems between the two, the prophets of Allahu alayhi wa sallam in the Companions, they came prepared, they

00:00:39 --> 00:01:14

had their weapons with them. And sure enough, Quraysh when they heard that the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam was coming with his companions, they prepared soldiers under the command of connoted mobileread who was not a Muslim at that time to stop them from entering into Mecca, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he asked his companions for their advice he asked about Booker and others, our book called The Allahu Allah and he said, that we go for our Ummah and if anyone tries to stop them, that we fight them, because it's their right to go for Umrah just like anyone else. Eventually the prophets of Allahu Allah he was sending. After having a dialogue with Quraysh

00:01:14 --> 00:01:53

they decided to reach an agreement and to sign a treaty, a treaty known as the treaty and who Davia but some of the conditions that the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam agreed to many of the companions found them very difficult to accept from them is that there will be no Omar for this year and they would come back and make it up next year. And that anyone who left Islam and wanted to return to Mecca he was allowed to do so. But anyone who accepted Islam in Mecca was not allowed to move to Medina finding this difficult to accept some of the companions even from them, I'm going to help them came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and asked him, aren't we the ones who are

00:01:53 --> 00:02:27

upon the truth and they are the ones who are informed falsehood. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he said, of course, Omar said then why should we accept something lower in our religion? Why should we be the weak ones after speaking to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam he went and he said the same thing to Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu remind him, this is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was telling us this, if he says it, then we say we hear and we obey. After this, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ordered that they offer the sacrifice, they slaughter the animals they brought with them, and that they shaved their heads and they returned to Medina. But the Sahaba were

00:02:27 --> 00:02:58

reluctant to do this, because they still had hope that perhaps that there was something would change and they would still be able to go for Umrah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being frustrated with this because they didn't follow the command immediately. And always if he tells them to do something, they will immediately do it. He went into his tent and when his wife home, Selena Radi Allahu anha saw that he was frustrated, she asked him what happened. He explained to her, she advised him she told him, go outside, shave your hair in front of everyone else and offer your sacrifice, and they will immediately follow you.

00:03:00 --> 00:03:38

And sure enough, he went outside and did it at a salon to a salon, and the companion store to run and race to implement the command. So much so that they almost harm one another. Each one was trying to quickly shave his hair and to offer and to offer his sacrifice. After this when they were returning from Mecca, Allah subhanho wa Taala sent down the verses in the beginning of Surah 10 foot in Fontana, like I've heard him Albina that indeed we have given you O Muhammad a clear victory even though it looked like a clear defeat to many of the sahaba. Or to many of the people were to look from outside. But this was the sixth year of Hinduism. And what happened during this time that the

00:03:38 --> 00:03:56

Muslims conquered a favor and only two years later they came back to conquer Mecca. And this reminds us that even at the times of difficulty, when we can't see the good in things that the victory of Allah is coming as long as we play our parts by obeying Allah and obeying His Messenger SallAllahu Allah he was sending him
