But your brothers and sisters

00:00:03--> 00:00:09

and today's Friday reminder from here, and it's number one with hood international schools,

00:00:11--> 00:00:28

we're going to be reflecting on some of the benefits that we gained from the battle of button. And the scholars usually when they talk about this time, a lot of times in the Hulkbuster, they talk about the Battle of butter, which is on the 17th of Ramadan, or the 15th Ramadan today,

00:00:29--> 00:01:05

on the 17th, the role of management this battle happened. And what we're going to do in this session today, we're not going to mention the battle itself, but I think we've heard it year in and year out, we should have a decent idea about some of the things that happen, the battle, it's good to remind ourselves, but due to the time restrictions, and we're going to focus just on some of the things that we gain and we benefit and we're probably gonna mention over about 20 different things that we gain from this battle. Inshallah Tada, if you look at any one of the things that we gain any when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Sahaba Radi Allahu anhu, when they left, their

00:01:05--> 00:01:43

intention was to go into capture the caravan that had the money operation it to get this money back. And there's two things we want to focus on here. First of all, is it because you might look at it in Islam where it's it's not permissible to steal or take something from someone else? And so someone might misunderstand, is this what's happening here? Because we're going and we're surrounding with our soldiers, and we're surrounding this caravan and we're taking from them. So any is this something that is permissive? Obviously, the provinces did, it's permissible, but there still might be that that misunderstanding of why this happened. And there's there's two reasons why this was

00:01:43--> 00:02:19

done. A general reason, and then a specific reason. The the general reason is that the Muslims were at war with courage and this type of thing is permissible at the time of war, to you know, to to harm the economy of your, of your rival, or the one your opponent who you're at war with. So there's no problem from that aspect. The other aspect is that Quraysh they use the torture and torment, the profanities and other companions of the Prophet Solomon take from they tried, as well as the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, but they took from their wealth, so they were just coming back to take back what was rightfully theirs, as well. So that's a specific reason. But the general reason, when

00:02:19--> 00:02:28

you're at war, these things are permissible. So that's no issue. The second benefit that we gain and when you look at the intention of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and

00:02:30--> 00:03:00

the Companions, they left, they didn't have their full military gear, they didn't have you know, all of their all of their weapons, there was 300, about 300 Some nourishes the 313 of them. And there was about 70 of politics so when you look at the numbers, any there any three times more, it's going to be easy for them to overtake the caravan. But what a loss of kind of what's not a one it was something greater for them. What a loss of Panama what's on a one for them, was them to meet a larger army and for them to be victorious. And Allah mentions this in surah.

00:03:02--> 00:03:45

Al unveil in verse number seven, with Yeah, Docomo, Allahu Akbar if attaining an lecom what they were doing a novella that they showed that Ito Gula come, we really don't know, are you help them? How can we can imati he worked by the barrel carefree. And remember all believers when a lot of promise you one of the two groups, that it would be yours, and you wished that the an armed one would be yours. And if they were to what what the Sahaba wanted here, their intention was is that they would face the smaller group, the one who wasn't fully armed, the one who wasn't fully prepared. They weren't, you know, wasn't their intention, they didn't know they're going to be such

00:03:45--> 00:04:21

a big group. And that's why many of the Sahaba who didn't have time to get back to their house and to grab their weapons or grab their, their horse or their camera or whatever it was, they didn't even go with them because they didn't need the numbers. So their intention was hopefully they're gonna get the caravan have the small numbers were not fully armed. Their intention wasn't to have the other group which was the fully armed, prepared to have 1000 soldiers, but Allah subhanho wa Taala said at the end of the day, we really don't know who are you help and help that we can imati way up there. Read and but a law he intended to establish the truth by his words, and to eliminate

00:04:21--> 00:04:57

the disbelievers so many times we have an intention for something but Allah subhanho wa Taala has a greater any any something greater for us to him that he's attended for us to happen. This will we see in the Battle of butter, something amazing when you look at any how they were going to the Battle of button, the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam and the Companions because they didn't have enough horses and camels. So they would take turns writing I mean, one person would ride the camel and two other people will walk and then they will take turns then that person will get down and other person will get up. So the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He was sharing the camera with

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

Alibaba thought about the Allahu and and with

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

Martha even Abby method, and when it would come time for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to walk and to get down, both of them would tell him, you know, sort of law. Let us work on your time and you stay on the camera so you can be relaxed. And this is something, no doubt that any followers for the leader, that's what they will do. But look at the lesson that we're sort of lost. And Allahu alayhi wa sallam taught us and even myself, you know, as someone who's a speaker, as a teacher, and you'll find that the people will take care of us when we travel, I'm imagining, you know, for me to, you know, if I was in a nice position to go down, it will be something strange. It will be something

00:05:38--> 00:05:39


00:05:40--> 00:06:17

for us to be able to imagine going through that, and at that time, but he looked at the the lesson that was the loss of Islam, and he taught us when he said to them, they said that any, you you two are not stronger than me. First of all, don't think that you guys are stronger. He said, You guys are not stronger than me. And he said that also, you're not more need of the reward than me. I also want the reward I also need the reward. And in this is a great lesson any of the Anyhow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was just an mercyful with his companions,

00:06:18--> 00:06:34

and a salatu salam. And also, one of the things that we gained from this is any how to truly impact your followers as a leader, how can you can truly have an impact on your followers. As a leader, there's one of the great lessons that we gain.

00:06:35--> 00:06:41

From from from this, what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did and how he taught us how to be true leaders.

00:06:42--> 00:06:45

From the things that we gain and we truly benefit from this story.

00:06:46--> 00:07:25

Is when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Lord learn that the caravan had escaped and other grayish fully on were coming out to battle with him and to attack him and his companions. He immediately went to the shore where to which was to ask him to seek the advice of the Sahaba of the companions Radi Allahu Anhu. And he said it any in a very any beautiful way how we asked them and could because he wanted to see and and we learn from this first of all, we gain from this that when there's something in the Sharia in Islam that doesn't have something from the Quran and the Sunnah, that we sit down and we advise especially when it's something that needs to be decided now we sit

00:07:25--> 00:08:06

down and we advise amongst ourselves as the advice of one another is that the true leader should do but if you look at the way he did it at least that was that first of all, he wanted to test to see where his companions were, and because now we're out number 313 Not fully armed against 1000 fully armed so are we ready to fight we're ready to take that chance and also in the way he did it and the way he said any she Rooney a Shoo, shoo Alia evenness and it's telling me what do you think what do you think? And right away I will Booker or their loved one replied, and any other this habit they replied Omar as well. And then that all of them were saying that any Yes, yes with you. But he

00:08:06--> 00:08:38

wanted to see what the answer said because he grew up with the people in America. He knew what their stance would be. Even though the answer they gave him the bear they gave him the allegiance and they promised to protect them. They promised to fight with him. This is the first real real experience just make sure that we're all on the same page and that all of us are ready and then so I didn't was and he said did any Kanika touch through the narrow Salah that you may be it seems that you want us to have a salon Of course, we promised you that you we would protect you well we protect our own families and our own wealth and we're with you into the end he said and you're gonna see what from

00:08:38--> 00:09:10

us that which makes you happy and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he relaxed upon upon hearing that and he said it was set up. And something very interesting when it comes to this is the shower or asking the advice of the companions. Imam even had you He mentioned something. He said that. This teaches us a lesson because the promises enemies more complete than all of them and his decision would have been sufficient. However, he wanted to teach a lesson for those who come after him the importance of

00:09:12--> 00:09:16

the importance of asking the advice and making the shorter between our companions.

00:09:18--> 00:09:22

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and us have had gotten close to brother

00:09:23--> 00:09:59

woodworkers, a de grado long run along with the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. They had reached or they met a man from the Arab, an older brother when met, and he had passed Croatia, he had information about Croatia, and he wanted to know, they want to know what and they get the information from him to know any what are their numbers, what are they look like, what what's going on? So they asked him a couple of questions, but he refused to give them the answer. He said, I will only give you the answer. If you tell me where you're from, and who are you? So the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He didn't want to give him too much information so the information doesn't get

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

back to what

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

Ah, now you're at the time of war, to keep things secret, but he needs the information from him. And as Muslims, we cannot lie. But we have something else in Islam, which is the third we're, which was

00:10:13--> 00:10:25

the Tory of the Tory, excuse me, we are the Islam, which is the Toria, which is not a lie, you say something else, which is true, but the person might understand something else. And this is a lesson that we can gain.

00:10:26--> 00:10:31

That we can benefit from doing this at the time of need when and when we need to

00:10:33--> 00:11:06

do to tell something that a person is gonna understand, and it's not going to make us fall into a lie. This is very important. And we can use this sometimes I need to get away from that. Because as Muslims, we don't lie. Okay, so here what happened in this story? So you understand. He said, Where are you from? And he said, I'll tell you. So first, let me set up and I promise you, I'll tell you, you have my guarantee. And the Prophet Allah said to meet kept his word. He said, Where are you from? He said, nadelman met any unmet need for him in Arabic. And if you translate it, it doesn't really it doesn't work for us in English for the for this example, anyways, as it basically means

00:11:06--> 00:11:12

we're from water. And what he means now is that we're from the water that were created from from any the, the,

00:11:13--> 00:11:47

how mankind is greeted. So that's truly saying, there's no lion that but the man is like he's thinking, man, is this some type of a healer, some type of tribe that I haven't heard about before. So he's thinking about as he leaves. So the point is, is that we need to use this type of approach in order to refrain from lying and to keep things and the secret or sometimes in order to prevent a bigger problem from happening, we can use this stylish Asana, but we, I would advise not using it too much. Because, first of all, not everyone is clever enough to use it, any people might actually throw a lie in there with it. So I mean, not everyone will be able to use it. But if you have the

00:11:47--> 00:11:58

ability to use it, you should use it only sometimes also. So if you if you will use that that approach or that style too much, you might actually fall into line later, something very, very amazing when it came to the

00:11:59--> 00:12:10

story of El hubba. Bubba, and his advice when they came together, and they stayed behind where the water was worthy. The province has said to me said, Okay, this is our basis, we're going to set up so

00:12:12--> 00:12:44

it will remove the rodella. And he came and pay attention, brothers and sisters, to the Edit to the manners of this great, so how there'll be a loved one. When he asked him, he said yellow suitable, he said is this place where you setting up? He said, Is this something that is, you know, is it from the way the law told you to set up here? And he because there's the case class in them? We're not gonna say anything is basically what he's saying. He said, or is it something and that is a war strategy. And he said, No, he said, This is a war strategy. He said that this is a war strategy, then he said, This is not the proper place to be, he said, the proper place for us is to be in front

00:12:44--> 00:13:16

of the wells. And we should close all the other wells, we should be in front. So we control the water. And that's going to help us be victorious and is going to give us the upper hand in the battle. Hearing this the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He immediately agree with him. Now it makes sense. That's, that's a brilliant idea. So he said to him, I listen to order the Companions, Elisa, to Santa to move in front of the water wells and to close all of the water wells, and just leave one of the wells just so the Muslims could drink from him, or he couldn't drink from it. And this also isn't a very valuable lesson for us, that when it comes to taking someone else's opinion,

00:13:16--> 00:13:48

and going back to the house, because now the process that I was given an opinion, that was actually better. So here's the better opinion that the Muslim goes and he takes the better of the two opinions, and he doesn't hold on. No, this is my opinion. And this is what we see so many times when someone comes with an opinion, especially if it's someone who's a leader, it comes this is my opinion. I'm the one and he like, like you're defending your honor or something like that. And as Muslims, we want to follow the heart we want to follow the truth. So if a better opinion comes to us, then we take it in hamdulillah and something very interesting that Imam Mulvaney Rahim alongside

00:13:48--> 00:14:05

he said, he said that oral jordanelle help men Juma to deem that going back to the truth and power that was true that which is better. It's from the deen is from our religion. And this is what the stance of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us. The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam they built for him.

00:14:06--> 00:14:43

An Orisha, Orisha is basically like a little tent with a cover up. And they made this the command post in a central command where the prophet symbolism could view the battle well, and you'd be protected from the sun on the top and he would be able to instruct the soldiers on what to do. So this is his command post. Here. There's any several benefits that we gain from this. First of all, this was the idea of Saudi mod to build this command post. And once again, he took the advice of his companions Radi Allahu anhu, who was with the Prophet it Salatu was Salam in the command post. It was Al Bakr Siddiq will be a loved one and as Imam even cathedra mentioned in his car, he said Rahim

00:14:43--> 00:14:59

Allah Tala. He said that this shows the formula the virtue of a worker Sadiq brought their loved one, the only one of the companions who was with him in the command post in the Orisha and the same one who was with him in the in the cave when they were migrating to make Hijra Ali so that was salam and probably a lot one. You

00:15:00--> 00:15:36

When you look at the story of what happened the night before the battle, I'd even have a thought he described he said, all of us were asleep all of us were passively all of this hardware sleeping and that's something in a positive because I was the need to string for the battle tomorrow. He said all of us were sleeping except for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam he was standing in prayer the entire night under the tree and sort of came over into standing and praying and begging to Allah subhana wa Tada and this shows us that any at the time of any need in general, we always need to return to Allah subhanaw taala like this, but especially in the time of need at the time of

00:15:36--> 00:15:51

difficulty that we immediately turn to Allah subhana wa Tada. And all throughout his life I need salatu salam at the time of difficulty. The Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam he will turn to the salah. This is what Allah told us and no Quran was there it will be somebody was salah, to seek assistance through patience and through prayer.

00:15:52--> 00:16:04

During the day, something very very interesting spot when you look in into the battle, something that happened, there was a man by the name of EMA LR 30. This man sent to Quraysh

00:16:05--> 00:16:10

an offer he offered them he said Look, you're going to find he was against the Muslims as well. He said I will send you

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

some troops or send you more weapons, whatever you need, I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm gonna send these things to

00:16:18--> 00:16:30

Qureshi look at the report of correlation, pay attention. They said, if we are going to fight Mohammed, then we have enough men to kill Mohammed, pay attention.

00:16:31--> 00:17:07

But then they said, who was saying this goofball, Kurdish non Muslims Mushrikeen polytheist, who joined porque by who worshipped statues, in order to get to law as they claim. They said But if we're going to fight the rub the lord of Muhammad, then he said, then we have no ability to defeat him. So this is the Quraysh, the Koopa, then we should again, they're the ones who have this understanding. They're saying that if we're going to fight Muhammad and his companion, that we have enough men, we don't, we don't need your men, we have enough weapons, you don't need your weapons. But if we're going to fight the lord of Muhammad, and we have no ability to be victorious, they

00:17:07--> 00:17:41

understood this. And this is a lesson for us as Muslims, any look at us in the days that we live in, we're so attached to so and so helping us or so and so helping us and forgetting that any the true victory comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala that will never be victorious and in less Allah is with us. And Allah helps us and hear the hoof operation understood this. But unfortunately, so many of the Muslims today don't understand this. One of the stories that happened before the battle the Prophet it said was salam. He asked if anything anyone has if I'm wrong, someone or someone has something they want to take from me, this is your time, because that is a time obviously before

00:17:41--> 00:17:45

battle that you might that. So one of the Sahaba by the name of Seward even

00:17:46--> 00:18:19

was here, or their loved one. He said, Yes. He said, I have something. So when you poke me one time in my stomach, and he said it hurt me, and I want to have mkisofs I want to have you know, get what's mine, you hurt me. So I have to do the same thing to you. He had an attention. And here the province of Salem look at look what he teaches the lesson. He taught us what it means to be a simple leader. This is one of your companions, you poke them with something to push him back, push him back in his life. And of course, a bit of pain for me didn't mean to cause pain. Or even sometimes maybe we're joking. Maybe I'm with one of the brothers in the masjid. And I hit him like this. And I think

00:18:19--> 00:18:53

it's light, but it could have hurt him. He's actually hurt me. So he said to him, he said, then your resource, you get your resource. So you get to do that. You mean you get to poke me back in the stomach. So the president he raises up his toe, he raised up his garments and uncovered his stomach. So, so what could come and he could, you know, get his sauce. What is what did he do? So what are the allaahu and he went and he grabbed the start to kiss the stomach of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and say obviously, I will never do anything to harm you or hurt you. And he just want the opportunity to be able to kiss the stomach of the province of Salem. And this shows us the

00:18:53--> 00:19:03

great love that the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu Mahad for our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in the Orisha he was in his command posts under his tent.

00:19:05--> 00:19:42

He was making dua for so long, that even his Redeemer is covered end up falling off, and I will talk about their loved one instead of here. So is making dua for a long time and this teaches us that at the time of need, we we truly return to Allah subhana wa Tada dua should be long and it should be in depth and we should really open up our hearts and speak to Allah subhanho wa Taala about where needed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and as if this was destroyed, this group that you won't be worshipped upon earth and they all love protectors, all lawmakers to tourists turning to Allah subhanaw taala at this difficult time.

00:19:43--> 00:19:44

When you look at the

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

victory of the Muslims, and how the Hoover police were defeated and not just defeated, but many of their main leaders were actually killed during that battle. And from them was Abuja Hill was the main enemy of

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

Osama even his nickname is The Pharaoh own of this number. He was that evil. So this evil man look at how he was killed as someone who has that, that cover. And we see that even in our times about some leaders who saw themselves to be greater than everyone else caught other ones rats and how they were killed and the end killed like a rat Subhanallah and you see

00:20:22--> 00:20:46

the same story the story of Abuja Hello the Allahu eventually any wounded him and put him down on the ground as he was dying. And that situation where two young boys from the Anzahl, two teenagers, they just reached like the age of puberty. They were young enough that they weren't, you know, like we have children soldiers, no, they were at the age of they become men. They reach puberty when they were young men at that time very young.

00:20:47--> 00:21:25

So these are the ones who now they were able to stab and severely injure. Abuja has the leader of police to teenagers or young men who were able to be victorious against him. And I will any other amendment oath. He described the beginning that I looked at my right, so I saw this, this young young guy, look to my left. So this young guy, young guy, he might be smaller, doesn't have the same experience as the older guys. Therefore, he's like, you know, he didn't really feel sure. But they said, Yeah, I'm my uncle. They said which one is Abu jihad? And he's like, why do you want to know whoever Johannes he said, because we know what he says about the province of Islam, so we want to

00:21:25--> 00:21:34

kill him. He said, once I saw that, they they know in their hearts, He said, I felt a short after this Subhanallah seeing this, any.

00:21:36--> 00:21:43

After seeing this, he said he was relaxed and they were able to find him and to put him down on the ground. But what came after that.

00:21:44--> 00:22:03

Abdullah Masaru, who was someone who was a shepherd and looked down upon by the people of Mecca, and he was he was he was very skinny and small at that time. He came and he stood on the chest of Abuja. At that time, even though he's on his chest, look at the kibble. Look how proud this individual was, and this is arrogance, had the arrogance. He was

00:22:04--> 00:22:34

being prejudiced, arrogant. He said, lacquered, Rokita Mutata saben Uruguayan, he said you've climbed on something great, or you shepherd of the of the goats. Allah looking down upon it, even though he's Eddie. He's dying. He's been so severely wounded. And then Abdullah masu draw the Allah one after that was the the shepherd who was looked down upon was the one who eventually killed him. Rhodiola one, something amazing when you look into this battle, that the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam.

00:22:35--> 00:23:11

He ordered that these leaders of coloration are the ones who were killed in the battle, even though these are the ones who harmed him, the ones who cursed at him spread lies and fabrications and about him the ones who harmed and killed some of his companions. He's still ordered that all of these leaders have perished, that they be buried. And this shows us the beauty of Islam and Islam in he respects the human, even if it's someone who is enamored of Islam, that they should be buried. And something very interesting in a narration. Yeah. Laban Maura Northey, Allah one, he said that I traveled with the prophets of the Lord while He was selling and he said that if he would ever to see

00:23:11--> 00:23:34

a dead body in America, you're traveling through the desert, things like that, like the days we're living, we're driving, we're seeing dead bodies on the road now. But back in the day, someone's traveling in the desert made ran out of water this and they find a dead body. And he said he would order us if we found a dead body to bury it out of respect for that human being. And he wouldn't ask Is it a Muslim? Or is it a cafe isn't a Muslim? Or is it a non Muslim? He will tell us the very out of respect for that human being.

00:23:35--> 00:24:11

He might be about 100 He mentioned that amount of Sookie was asked about the hikma Why did the angels fight with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the companions? And why didn't just because if God were to come with one of his wings in a or even an agent, just one of the part of his wing that he would be able to knock out the entire army of Kurdish Why didn't just happen like miraculous like this Gibreel comes with one of his wings out and destroys all of the army of courage. And he said the wisdom behind that is that a lot of what the fighting to actually be from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the companions that now the angels are just an assistance

00:24:11--> 00:24:45

but actual victory is actually from you guys. You're the ones who did it and we just helped you with the angels at the end so it was a panel assisted them and that's why I mean when when you when you look at the verse, When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was making the DUA, the verse and sort of verse number nine is just the way you do not have Boko vistajet welcome if you're making this the whole other turning to a law making on a law Oh Lord, help us make us victorious. Allah said first the jab Allah contra low and so you name with the Combi elfin mineral magnetic as a motive in that I'm going to sing 1000 of the angels to be with you to support you. And that's what

00:24:45--> 00:24:54

happened. So they came as a support and not as the you know, the reason that victory recently victory was behind. We are from the province of Salem and what ended the companions did Radi Allahu Anhu

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

at the end of the battle when they were victorious, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam He sent him

00:25:00--> 00:25:24

Athena, a group of Sahaba for them to give the glad tidings to the Muslims so they can rejoice that they can celebrate. And we take and we learn from this that Muslim method and good things happen to, to the Muslim to the Ummah, that it's good for us to celebrate it and to announce it, and so everyone else can rejoice and join in on the happiness with us in shallow tonto. When you look at how the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, how he

00:25:26--> 00:25:42

dealt with the SLR, the prisoner of war, and I want you to imagine now, we just finished the battle. And we have around 70 Now, prisoners of war, the same POWs, the prisoners of war,

00:25:44--> 00:25:51

there are enemies from the opposing army. They were just fighting us. They were just trying to kill us.

00:25:52--> 00:26:06

Many of them were from the ones have been harming us for years, killed some of our companions, maybe they will from the ones who are spreading the lies and and the false no false propagated the false media about the process in them and spreading lies about him.

00:26:10--> 00:26:28

But yet, how did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam deal with him he told his companions, to be good to them, and to take good care of them. So here the your enemy now they're making sure that they're well taken care of making sure that they're fair, they have food and water, all of this this hover immediately, even though maybe in their hearts like these

00:26:29--> 00:27:05

are enemies for all these years. Now. They're just fighting us. But the process says do it. What do we do as muslims submit our autonomy here, we will wait. So they took care of the most of these individuals. And this shows us that they know that the beauty of Islam what's meant by the war is to establish truth and establish justice, not for anti calm not for revenge, not to harm and harm others. It's not always them once Islam wants to spread justice and equality upon Earth. And if there's a war, and we look at the battles of the process, the battles of this habit, it was the spread justice, it was the spread mercy wasn't. And that says a lot of times he will they will talk

00:27:05--> 00:27:39

about war, and that evil things will, yes, wars that are done for any worldly gain, or just certain group benefits and to harm other individuals. This is something horrible, and something Islam doesn't allow. But it was something to establish justice to stop the oppression. And then when people were being oppressed, and in certain places, and an army goes into a system. Hello, this is Robert, this is mercy. And this is to establish mercy. This isn't that it's that equivalent, cause maybe it's all wars a horrible thing. Yes. And he generally speaking, no one wants to go to war, but sometimes, and in order to establish justice to establish mercy, they can actually can be a good

00:27:39--> 00:28:07

thing to help those who and you can imagine several times and around the world today, the day that we live in, where people were being oppressed. If people were to say, look at some of the countries around the world, if you were to look at non Muslim countries, NATO and all of this, and again, we're horrible many times behind many of these things anyways, but if they were to be honest people, and they will say, Look enough is enough, what's going on in this country, we're stepping in, no more people are getting killed. Like, for example, in Syria, now, they were just to come and say, Look, we're going to remove this guy who's causing the problems, we're going to, there's not going

00:28:07--> 00:28:47

to be a new war. And it's actually easy to be done. But unfortunately, a lot of stuff people have different agendas. But this is the point is that sometimes the could be a lot of mercy, and war, as we see any any and many things through our history. And many examples, especially when it comes to the battles of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, something interesting, with these Sr, these these prisoners of war, the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam, he agreed that some of them could be ransom, some of them would pay money, to be ransom and to be let go freed other ones, how were they ransomed the ones who are educated from them, because at the time, this is a time of

00:28:47--> 00:29:16

illiteracy, where most people didn't know how to read and write, but this is something looked down upon Islam is something Islam wanted to eradicate and removed from the society. Therefore, the prisoners of war who knew how to read and write the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. He ordered that they would teach one of them if he was educated. In order to read write, he would teach 10 of the children of the Sahaba Radi Allahu unknown how to read how to write and then they would be let go. And that shows obviously the status of knowledge and the importance of knowledge in Islam.

00:29:17--> 00:29:20

What other benefits Schelotto mentioned so in with this here, inshallah.

00:29:21--> 00:29:34

This is very important, especially for the brothers and sisters who live in Muslim countries. And we see a lot of times in the Gulf countries in particular, but even for us in the West as well, it's the same ruling.

00:29:36--> 00:29:45

The fact that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam accepted from these individuals who are non Muslims, who had a different

00:29:46--> 00:29:58

ideology, what a different way of life, looked at things that we look at as being haram not permissible being halal, that the profanity salatu salam he taught them he allowed them to teach the children of the Sahaba right away

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

Many Muslims might say Dinesh show this is Joe, as it's permissible for us to take non Muslim teachers and let them teach our children. Generally speaking, in certain cases, yes, it could be permissible, we can understand that from the story. However, what we need to pay attention to in this story is the fact that these individuals were POWs. They were prisoners of war. That means what is the prisoner of prison a type of prisoner, He's not someone who has a high status, someone's looked up to someone who's weak in a society, he's someone who I need to do this to free myself, I'm in a very weak situation, therefore, at the time of weakness, but he had something we can benefit

00:30:38--> 00:31:10

from, we benefit from it. But when we bring a teacher in, for especially for overseas and this, and he's coming in as a more adult, him as a teacher, who looks who's looked up to by the students, and they look at him and Allah, and he has a different mindset, that doesn't mean he's a bad person pay attention. Many, many non Muslims can be very good people I'm going to call this, but the way they look at things, is not the way that we look at things. What is permissible had for them, is not permissible for us. And we've been being involved in education

00:31:11--> 00:31:17

in the Gulf countries, now here in Turkey, and also in some Western schools as well.

00:31:18--> 00:31:50

whether it'll be in consulting, or teaching, or whatever it is. And we see this problem time and time again, where a teacher falls into problems with the Muslim student because of the mindset, how they look at things and how they deal with things. So we need to be aware of that. And we should focus on having, you know, Muslim teachers and Chautala to teach our children but they also must be qualified, not just just not to be Muslim, and then what they're teaching is something that's not beneficial. So these are some of the benefits that we gained from the battle of Bucha want to focus on, to be able to to benefit from this as it comes, you know, at this time of year, year round are

00:31:50--> 00:32:25

on the 17. And it was on the 17th of Ramadan, and we're on the 15th today, so to benefit from some of the benefits now just to tell the story, like you know, we're here in urinal, which is beneficial, but inshallah perhaps more beneficial is to focus on some of the things that we can gain and act upon and implement in our lives. And that brings us to end of today's session, chances are, we'll be continuing with these sessions every week with who the international schools here live from Istanbul and Chautala. So join in at this time, Jonathan 150 If there's any changes, and it's 150 and then some more time it's going to be 11:50am 1:30pm. Istanbul is 11:50am in the UK, so wherever

00:32:25--> 00:32:47

you are in the world you can figure out what's happened that is in Shelton and if there's any changes to the schedule will let you know which we're hopefully going to continue if the lockdown continues after Ramadan which we pray does it but it very well might. If it doesn't shut down we're going to continue also this Friday reminders every single week in Charlottetown because we need these reminders. Allah made it part of our Sharia part of our

00:32:48--> 00:33:02

part of our deen where we have the Friday we will have the Juma so we're not having at least one to have these Friday reminders weekly of shelter. Until then until next time alone was best Allah Allah Allah masala wa salam Baraka, which is more halal, Hayden said I'm already connected
