Some people could do what they wanted. Yes, it was a little bit unfair to the Prophet Alia sauce on the Muslims, but he got what he was hoping to get, which is the peace and people could enter in any alliances and allegiance that they wanted to.
And the values also spread his wings, he started to send correspondence to Kings, how they saw to astronomy actually began doing the Dalai Lama that he had to hope to do for a very long time. He's sending people out to speak to tribes, tribes, we're accepting Islam in bundles, like full full tribes, like you're talking about, like 1004. It was Islam, one person at a time, two people, four people, something like that. Now it was a tribe, a full tribe, everyone would say data and the law was a big deal. amongst the people that he sent the correspondences to, he sent to the king of Basra he was called medicals assessing the king of assassin. Assassin is the name that they they were
called because they're one of their ancestors with a with a guy called God's Son.
Unfortunately, this gentleman killed the messenger, which is a huge betrayal. And it goes against every law of the land that existed and you don't do that, regardless of when you lived, or where you live. That was a known and written like, unwritten it was it was a verbal contract, everyone knew, unspoken rule, you don't kill the messenger, if someone's bringing you a piece of information, don't do it.
That you know, or the king of Sparta shouldn't have done it either. But he did it anyway. So whatever. But the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam, the only one that happened he didn't he had very low tolerance for betrayal and for treason. So and he wanted to make sure that he honored the person that he sent. You want the people, he wanted people to know that he cared for them. And he protected them, he had their backs. As a citizen, that makes a big difference. So he moved an army for her as a lesbian, this is the only time you'll hear this name, you probably forget it.
And I always find that to be interesting that people forget this guy's name, they don't know his name, because there's not much else he did besides that as far as we have. But it doesn't mean that he's just not not as valuable as any other Muslim. You don't have to be a big name. You don't have to have a lot of status served from a family, you know, in the eyes of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, you're part of his his country, you're you're equally valuable to everyone there. And if you are mistreated, that he will move in army for you, it helps a lot to us. And that was the message that the people of Medina took from this, that lifted the morale people felt valuable. They felt
that they belong. And that's why they that's why Islam spreads so quickly, and so and so vastly in every direction after he died. Because people felt that this they felt ownership over what Islam was because the Prophet alayhi salam made sure they did. And he wanted to teach the Sahaba to start taking responsibility for the deen on their own. So we didn't go to this battle. 3000 people were gathered, he assigned out of your stilettos and the leaders Zaid of Zaid is not there than Jaffa Jaffa is not there, then Abdullah ibn Rwanda and they would go out they would find that the kingdom of assess you know put together an army of maybe 70 to 80,000 and got scared you ask the Romans for
help and they put together something within the ballpark of 150 to 250. Like their number was ridiculous in comparison to what the Muslims had. They saw the number they went and they did something called Shura min Zaid
demonstrated that he did learn from the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam tell him what to do in these situations. So he turned to the people who are with him and he said Shiro Allah your nurse, what do we do and he took people's votes and they came down to three basic ideas are there we go back and say well we can't really avenge our brother with with with this difference of numbers or we wait for the profit we send to the prophet as I'm asking for help knowing they knew that there was no one else to send like maybe another 1000 Maybe tops he could send
or we just keep on going and then I'll go row by row who I felt guilty for being late initially came in and gave a very important speech and he told them Well lucky Morocco Tarragona in lemon Valley can lead the potato manager Lee it seems like you're running away from the thing that you came for you came for a martyr isn't McCain for shahada, why are you running away from it? And I get to walk around Alaba reformed worker and move so they so he basically and he moved the crowds and the crowds that okay, we go and then there's consensus that they were going to go and continue. But they couldn't fight an open land. You can't they can't just go in the open and fight a quarter of a
million people with 3000 Ridiculous. So they found the city of Moto, the town of Moto, the town of Moto I think I have a picture of the masjid that exists and that is the message that exists in a small place in Jordan. It's not very big.
You can still go see that Masjid where the prophet Allah saw where the where the Muslims had their their battle with with Osasuna. It's actually a very moving, I think I wasn't able to visit it, but my teacher did and it's a very moving area. He thought it was one of the most interesting things he'd ever did.
The battle would begin for the first six days. It went marvelously. For the Muslims, they lost very, very few people. And then number seven, the Romans changed their their tactics. They said that really the read the strength of the Muslims comes from the person carrying the flag, that's their leader. If you can just take that person down, we will shake them to their core. So the focus was just go after the person with the flag. Forget everything else.
Just put all your effort to take down the person carrying the banner which was the leader, but the Muslims will always the leader. So say it was basically showered your colon font and a lot of ADA just said these aid in for can can MUNHALL see him? It was like he was a you know the thing that they use to get rid of the pieces of rock within wheats. So they will I don't know, what did they call it there as a name and
a screen so I can speak so that his body was just filled with holes from from how many how many arrows hit him on the Allahu Anhu the Prophet alayhi salatu salam at that moment was on the member. He was dying. He was literally live. It was live feed. He was in real time earlier started telling people was happening. I said hello Macatawa Lehel. Org for a to whom the profile is also said that Allah subhanaw taala had me my vision to see where they were. And he was watching them. He was telling them what's happening. He didn't know what's going to happen. He was watching it with his own his eyes out of his thoughts that I'm telling people transmitting to them what was going on. And
this is the Hadith that we have in Bihar in Muslim where the Prophet alayhi salam is telling them after the riots or we have no riots, they don't know how he says he has Kanga Raya. And if I Sebata
Tasha to me, he said we see him for work. I'm Aquila motivator, is standing there, but enough arrows hit him that he fell, he fell with his face forward and didn't turn his back or the Allahu Anhu. And he starts to saw about a hill salatu salam as he tells them the death of one of the people he loved the most probably on this earth when you think about his life out of your Salatu was Salam. I don't think we fully appreciate what
what last he went through. I think it's important to think about that as you age. Maybe when you're younger, it's hard to understand it. But as you age, think about that a little bit. The part of it is salatu salam was born his father wasn't around. He lost his mother at the age of six. He lost his grandfather, he lost his grandmother, he lost his uncle. And then he lost his wife and he lost all of his daughters throughout his life on the hill. Salatu Salam he lost two male children when they were younger. And then he watched at least two or three of his grandchildren passed away and they lost his his infant child Ibrahim later on and then three of his aunts and four of his uncle's Allah
usato Semmens ate them and Hadith altogether over 18 direct relatives to him Ali Asad so some died during his life. I mean, one of those would be a tragedy like for any life, you know, if any life story of for any of us, one of those tragedies would would be enough to make your life very difficult to make it to make it a scar that you never forget about it. You couldn't you couldn't go through a day without thinking about it causing you to be feel very sad. But how will the raw value salatu salam continued to go through life with a smile on his face every day. It kept on chugging along, kept on moving forward never stopped. Never Never was ever broken by that Alejo Sato just
tells says something about his character. We don't see that like when you hear some of his Hadith, the things he did and he said how he behave. You forget the fact that he at the moment he's saying this, he probably just maybe a couple of months before suffered a horrific personal loss.
Horrific personal loss and keep on going on yourselves and people were very strong 10 tend to make you forget how hard that is to be what they are. People are extremely strong, make it make it seem easy. So we take it for granted. We don't even think about it. The rough idea Salatu Salam is an example that is that really requires a lot of contemplation and reflection. I don't know how he did that. I don't know how he could lose so many people that were so close to him. And it's not like he was someone who had a hard a hard rock hard heart providing a solid dose and I was very in touch with his emotions. He loved the people around him love them dearly. And he saw it for all of them.
And he and he more into all of them. It has a lot to them but he just had within him that trust in Allah subhanaw Then acceptance for this life and expectation, a realistic expectation and what it meant to be alive that allowed him every day to keep on being optimistic keep on moving forward trying his best enjoying the company of those who are around him for the time that they were there.
So we lose his aid, or the Allahu Anhu tears are running down his face. Jafar picks up the banner they go after Jaffa, they chop off bows at both of his arms and he holds it with whatever is left of his of his of his torso and in arms and keeping the banner or standing for as long as he can hold the Allahu Sakata. According to the law, He healed little by little we looked at his Banco de la Hondo Jaffa after this we saw not one scratch his back with was clean. Everything that happened to him happened to him with his face and his and his chest forward into the enemy the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and remember, I was like the writer Jonathan Talib, but habita Balcatta Lu Takata agua
de julio Maranatha habla nuestra Takata Oh USA Biado de vaca Lou Rahul NFL Jannetty baby Jenna Haney mini output. They chopped off his right arm took it with his left it took off his left he took it with his with his torso they took they killed him. I see him now in Gen nine he has two wings of rubies and jewels that Allah subhanaw taala has substituted for him.
And of course Joshua had just come back. Jeff had only been there for maybe a month after 15 years of being in Tableau shut away from the prophet Isaiah says I'm ready for all the action he missed out on so much he would die a month later.
Hola Juan, the true example of altruism and saving the Jaffa the Sahaba used to use him in Milan and most of them in omega as examples of people who gave everything and didn't walk away from this life with almost anything at all.
Carla from after the riots, Abdullah Hebner, Allah, Allah, Allah had picked up the banner, patella Kahuna. And then he
he hesitated for a second. For a second there, it was just a little bit scary, scary. It's all fun and games when we're talking. Life is on the, on the line, it's a different story, shall you never have to see that. See, I mean, you never hope for a moment or you have to, you know, see your life on ever. It's never what we asked for as Muslims, but we shouldn't be ready to offer it if needed, but we should never hope for it. And Allah for that moment, he just hesitated for a second then he picked it up when he did it. But if I felt bad for work, I'll tell you who are Allah and effulgent and I'm sorry to take up because they're happy that one of them also stood their ground, but the
Prophet Ali's thoughts and we'll see later on in the Zaidan wa photofusion As I said about him in the hub, Amara whom Abdullah he'd known Allah Hi Leila and be said at his virar and whom I see all three of them in Jana Jacqueline's aid right beside each other on their two thrones, or they're on their beds on whatever they're sitting on. And Abdullah has on his as well, but he's a little bit a little bit lower, according to mar rasool Allah kala Tera Kahuna, he's a little bit lower, he hesitated for a second they didn't. They didn't. And he did. And that leaves us with this very, very, almost depressing question. How many moments have you hesitated? How many moments have I
wasted knowing what I should have done? But I didn't? How many times? Can you think about how many? How much ground Have I lost? How much time I wasted? How far behind am I going to be on the Day of Judgment? Take your time to think about these things that will make you prepare yourself. Prepare yourself so that when you're put in this position, where you need to take initiative, where you need to do what is right where you need to speak the truth and you need to defend what is correct and you need to actually make decisions in your life that are that are righteous that you are ready for and that you don't hesitate. You do what you need to do immediately as as Jafar Lindsay Lohan who
now is chaos, because three, three of the late delete three leaders of the Prophet alayhi salatu, Salam assigned have fallen, they don't have a force, he didn't give a force out of your salatu salam. So they're looking around, what did they do, they take the banner they give it, the banner has to stay up, it's not appropriate for it to be on the ground for more than a second. They pick it up. They look fabulous. And from Mila Marilla. Anna was the eldest of the sahaba. And he was one of the people who stood in battle. So we had a criteria and he was a known warrior. So he had the criteria to carry the banner. So they gave it to Tabitha Rhodiola. I know this is yours, Fabian did
not hesitate. He's looking around as he's taking it to see where the guy is. They know who they're looking for. They all know who they have with them. They have with them. They have with them, the genius of all geniuses, they have the person that you want on your team. It's really beautiful to be that person, right? In this world. It's awesome to be that person, the person that once you're on the team, people are happy. Yes, we have food on the team. As a child, it sometimes hurts when you're not that person, especially when it's a sport. You're just not good at that sport. But forget about that. Forget about sports for a moment, because sports, you know, sometimes it comes with how
tall you are, how maybe thick you are, anyhow, how talented you are. Sometimes you can't really choose these things. And if you don't have them, you know, you're not always the PERT the first person to be chosen. Remember, as a kid, I was never really chosen first. It was always kind of later on in the choice process because I was small, and I wasn't very tough. And you could you can basically kick me off the ball pretty quickly. But forget about sports for a moment. There are more teams in life that matter. In life, you'll come around as you go through life. And being on teams will happen outside of sports, and being the person on the team that people enjoy. It's not about
just the physical traits that you have. It's really about the skill set that you built, the amount of dedication, how humble you are, how much of a team player you are, how committed you are to the cause and how much you're really willing to work with people around you to make things actually happen. That's how people will judge whether you're someone they want on their team or not as as time kind of progresses for you. Carly didn't lead was one of those people who had built a very specific skill set he spent a lot of time learning how to do something really well. And he was smart and he hadn't had a lot of practice so they loved having on the team fabric find looking for him
yesterday man who was take the banner, you're the leader but got a million Bellini. It is not appropriate for me to do this. Well. I don't mean anybody and you're one of the people fought with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam on the day basil will come to I do welcome Yamaha and I was on the other side that day. Well couldn't Dima, who we all know heard you were there on the neighborhood. Welcome to the draconian Mahana was against you that day? Well Quintessa who Yeoman hunt duck and you on the day trench? We were with him well couldn't do I do welcome Johanna was against you that day. It's not appropriate for me to take it. But Carla yell at us today man. Let's have a look at
Yahoo to her no one else besides you is going to take it today. Bucca. Sahaba and the sahaba. All around agreed with him give it to Khalid annuity, he the Prophet Allah, Allah do something at sign him
in the sign when you think about it,
That's kind of weird. Like he kind of accepted Islam he is one of the most talented commanders strategists that are alive that ever lived. Honestly, if you study his life he's
I'll tell you a little bit about him continually
did so much was such a small army that myths began to spread about him rumors, like people started to believe myths about him. That's how that's how impressive he was. To the point where when they went for Yarmuth,
I wanted to help Bob had to degrade him. I just say you can't you can't be the commander. Because people are getting it taking it out of hand. It's getting out of hand. People are saying things about us getting out ahead you have to you have to remain removed, you're going to turn into something that's not even safe for you. So he he demoted him and put Abu already did ninjalah Buhari. It was someone who was so what learned within this short time he spent with the Prophet Allah usados and had learned such sincerity that didn't bother him that he continued to carry the woods and do the work and they told him yesterday man, the corner Wallah he Malka he knows he learns
no one should be the commander of this army but you and he came by us now with delicate armor. Well, the Himalayan belt hillock and Ducati How does armor do this? You shouldn't you shouldn't be fighting for America to your armor. The agricultural Jamar never fought for almost to stop fighting for armor like it doesn't matter what he does. But the reason it has become is that there was a myth and is what happened on the day of Yarmouk. What happened was a man comes out of the of the Roman army. And he says, Where is it amongst you Harlequin? Really is he? They're following armies amongst us? He's one of the he's one of the army
says he's not the commander.
And they say no. So he says, so you actually have someone even better than him that's commanding this like he's not the best version that you got. Those guys like, oh, oh, great. And we were we had a problem with him being there. Now. He's not the best person to command. Can you call him out? Please? Because we have a question. So Hidin when it comes out, so the man says uh, Hey, hon. Anika either Alicia safe aka well finds Debbie he had Kedah to Lulu who will Jason at the moment. Is it true that you take out your sword and you pinpoint it like this and a light bulb? A bolt of lightning kills DMR army in front of you. Carla No that's not true for call academic people who are
together I know you're a lawyer. That's how it is.
But can you please save and give me your storage bucket? No, no, give me my shirt. This is the sort of the profile as well investment because you see, you don't want to give me your sword because it's true. But if Allah haga led Fatah Hussain, who, by philosopher Rumi you Yes, I do hookah hookah, and there is a woman took the property, the highlands
sword, he started going like this, and nothing was happening. myths were built upon this gentleman. That's how that's how this how amazing he was when it came to this. He's so good at it. The Sahaba appreciated the appreciated.
qualification, someone being qualified to do something.
Oh my God.
They didn't care that he wasn't the most senior.
Are you hearing me? They didn't care that he wasn't the most senior person there. He was the most qualified. They cared that they looked for the person who had the most qualifications, the person who was right for the job to do the job. That's how we're supposed to function. It's not about who was here first. It's not about who's older. Thought about what family you come from. It's about are you the most qualified person to do this? And if you are then fuggle, go ahead and do it. Because what matters is that the actual goal is achieved. Not that Phoolan is in front, or Fudan is running it, it doesn't matter. Yeah, it doesn't who's the best person to do it to that this team works to
bring that person and move them forward. But when egos are too big, it's impossible. When the egos are too big, they blind you and ego can become so big you can't see anymore because it's in front of your eyes you can't see and all that matters is not for the right person to do it. It's about control or it's about seniority or whatever other garbage problem that we have to deal with in our community and the right person the qualified person is not being put in the right position to do the job. I'll tell you a moment where we're egos don't exist anymore.
in war, when you're standing there, you're scared for your life. Your ego doesn't exist babajide Lokrum of course also hobble rover level another level anyways, but at the moment of war, there's no ego Fabian is like no, no, I can't save you. If I take this we're most likely going to die all of us but I think there's one person who could probably save us all take the banner, but I just took this done yesterday. I don't care if you just accepted Islam now take the banner because no one can save us but you right now is the concept of making sure the qualified person is in the right position.
As you go through life, especially if you're younger, you're listening to me maybe the older generation this is too late for them
to accept this at this point. But if you're young, always think about that. Don't think about your personal glory. Don't think about your position.
And don't get caught up about your in your name and where you are. Think about what's best for the team, the team as in the team of Muslims, the Muslim ummah. Think about the OMA what's best for the OMA, how who will benefit the Ummah more think about that, and then put people in the right positions to do it. And that means you need to step back, take a step back.
No one likes a team player who's not a team player. No one likes a player who's not a team player. No one likes them. No one likes someone who is who is selfish on the pitch. Someone who only cares about them scoring or them becoming no one likes people like that they're not fun to play with. And in the long run, they don't succeed they fail. It's people who are willing to sacrifice to the team works is people who have those qualities. Make sure you're like that is because the Muslims were like that hotter than Waleed was immediately given that status. And it's interesting. The Prophet Allah you saw some didn't choose him to be a commander. Why? Because if he chose him, it's like he
forced him upon the Muslims. He wanted the Muslims to make that choice on their own. And they did, so that Khalid would earn his position amongst them based on his merit, not based on assignment. It's different and it's much more it's much more meaningful to be to be given a position based on merit based on qualification based on hard work, not based on Well, someone come and said, You came and said, You have to be here.
So I didn't really you know, the Allahu Anhu. He takes the takes the banner, so he tells them, okay, we can't win this retreat, retreat back into the city. So they retreat back into the city things calm down.
They hold the position until nightfall when the fighting stops. nightfall comes, he gathers them. Alright, this is what we're going to do. Listen to this. This is amazing.
It tells them I think we've done what we set out to do. For our island, we've already avenged Ahadith we've killed from them, maybe maybe 1000 fold more than they taken from us. We've lost maybe up to 25 people they've lost in the 1000s 1000s of them have died. So I think we've already kind of proved our point. We actually brought out a quarter of a million of them to fight 3000 We have cornered them, we beat them for six days straight. I don't think we have anything more to prove here. There's no way for us to fully win this. Do I think we should strategically tactically do a retreat? I think that's what we should do. So how about an agreed at that point? They said yes to
how do we do it though. So we told them, we can't run away. We can't just turn around and start running down to Medina, they will catch us in the middle of the desert and kill us. It's not gonna they're quicker than us. They have more more horses, they have more camels, we don't have as many I actually it was not only with the numbers lower, but the Muslim had less cavalry. Like they didn't have as many horsemen. But they did have around around 300 horsemen, the Muslims are the 3000, which is 10%, which is ridiculously low, like ridiculously low you're talking, it shouldn't be at least at least 40%. In order for this to work for any for any fight to be fruitful. So number was low. So the
current this is what he came up with, he told us what we're going to do, what we're going to do is all 300 of you are going to go as far as the horizon is until you cannot necessarily see people anymore.
And you're going to start from basically just before if you're
having your horses just run around in circles, and cause the biggest dust storm that you can possibly cause I want to see dust hitting the sky. And then he told the main main, the main main which is the right part of the Army, and the Mesa and then there's the left part of the army and then there's Kadima, the middle part of the Army, we're going to do a switcheroo, you're all going to switch from one place to the other because for seven days, the same people same place. So the Romans are used to the people that are fighting with the same faces. We're going to switch now we're going to switch and everyone is going to go tonight right now take a shower and clean your clothes.
I want your clothes to be spotless. Cleaning the banners, clean everything make it look like it's brand new switch just switch everything around so that the morning when we start to fight again, they see you and they see that your face is different people when he's trying to do or the law why No, he's trying to elude the army in front of him that there's there's mitad me there more people are coming. More and more armies are being sent. And he told them what you're going to do is you're going to call out in the middle of the of the of the fight, Allahu Akbar Jaya limited every every 10 minutes, someone's going to scream. Glory be to Allah help is coming. Right? Just keep on do that
for the first couple of hours in the morning.
Now, they switch everything around in the morning come. So the Romans are seeing different faces. They look. They looked at the clothes, it looked new. The banners have like fresh paint. Looks like it's not the same people that were fighting yesterday. So they're going back to their commanders like these aren't the same guys. And they keep on saying this method thing.
They see people talking about like, support and aide coming to they look into the horizon and they see dust to the sky.
And the 300 they were told by clouded I want you to make them
I'm into six groups groups of 50 you come swifting in just just just charging into into the battle and when you do everyone will do take me or Allah Akbar galmudug Then when you there and you go when you fight six times
How did you really hide them do this six times the first time that 50 Cavalry they come in and everyone's doing to compete everyone's happy that the there's no one this is the same army that's been there the whole time. It's all just all of this is just a show there's nothing there's the same people but everyone's all happy. And of course these people are on horseback are coming in they're fighting so the first time they're almost like oh my god this is real. Then the second time then the third time than the four than the after the sixth time there. I was like this is not going to work we couldn't be 3000 There's more people coming look at the look at the smoke look at the dust in the
background and then what it said And once that's done, we all retreat at once and they all just retreated and the Romans are like
what do we do
we charge after them like no no this is this is this is definitely an ambush. They already had like six groups of people come in and it looks everything is different. This is an ambush Wait, as they are talking and waiting Khalid is like back to Medina already caught it and the Muslims have already they're just charging back to Medina running as high as fast as they possibly could. While the Romans are like no, this is an ambush Shah he thinks he's fine. We're not gonna we're not gonna fall for this we wait for a little bit so they're waiting and talking and sending an eye and by the time they figured out that the whole city is empty and there is nothing left heart is already in Medina
or the Allahu Akbar and that's how we ended about
they didn't follow them because they were already extremely embarrassed
the amount of embarrassment that the army had they didn't even follow the Romans like you know what this is the last time we ever helped you and they go back and have a session to go back to their do their kingdom that was the end of it. And they didn't Derek follow the Muslims because like if we couldn't fight them here I'm pretty sure we can't fight them back in their city. It's not it's not going to work. So leave them alone. Funny enough. By the time hotter than the lead in the Muslims make it back to to Medina.
They're happy that we made it. The people of Medina, the women of Medina come out to greet them calling them yeah, for raw. Yeah, for the ones who ran away. Shame on you. The ones who ran away. You ran away. I forgot to turn fi sebelah that's what they asked him Ah, you're supposed to like performance you heard he said so they're mocking them a Ferrari tomb fi sebelah you ran away for the sake of Allah that's what you did you run away to the Prophet Allah you saw to them is seeing them say that people say that this is how they valued. This is what this community valued. This community valued people who stood their ground, the community, even the wives and the mothers who all they
care about is the safety of their loved ones. But they're not willing to do that if it's at the expense of doing the right thing. Not at the expense of standing your ground not at the expense of doing what was right and defending what what you know is correct in this role of standing by righteousness. No, I want you to come back safe but not if you're running away. Don't run away from battle. So they came out shaming them for not atone FISA de la Farrar that's what you are you're you're deserters you deserted free Sabine Allah, that's what you did. You're proud of yourself. So the Sahaba who were very happy they made it we're we're silenced. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam
said la ladies who before Ah, no, they they didn't. They didn't desert by whom will Corrado in sha Allah. They're the ones who fought and pushed forward more than anyone else with Karla hided in Nima and the seafood Minister, you feel like you are one of the swords of Allah subhanaw taala here on Earth and that was the time he was given that that name or the Allahu Anhu or when of course that name stuck with him. This still you know, Harlan really did with the Allahu Anhu
when he died, he didn't die in battle. He died at home and got ill and he got any any and he couldn't move anymore.
And he was passing away at home. And he was on his deathbed and he was sobbing.
Like when I moved to LA she killed about a year I'm dying on my bed like a like an animal like a camel.
Ma What is this? What is this disgrace I shouldn't be dying on a battlefield and protection of Allah in production of my of my Muslim brothers. And he passed away on the Allahu Anhu making dua that Allah would forgive him for that. I think what he didn't see was the fact that that had to happen that way. You see, is it hard was it was one of the swords of Allah. Oh, tell me
who can kill the sword of Allah subhanaw taala
anyone kill the sword of Allah in the middle of a battle you think? Of course he of course he's gonna die in battle. Because if you tell Carling will even in a battle when you've killed one of the swords of Allah Subhan Allah so he's not gonna die in battle. He's going to die. He just didn't see it at the time. He could even think of it. But that's the level of commitment he had those Allahu Anhu Allah for the cause that he lived for. He accepted late sometimes when you come in late. You have to kind of go the extra mile. Sometimes you come in late. You have to push yourself really hard. You see that Hamza, no more talented than honorable Hapa did that Khalid bin Walid in that
honorable house did that. They came in a little bit late. They figured out Yeah, we missed we missed the show. We missed the party.
We should have probably accepted this a couple of years before. I don't know why we did this. So they go the extra mile, they push themselves farther, they push themselves harder. It's okay. To come in late. It's okay to say, You know what, I should have figured out what was right and wrong before, but I figured it out now. It's late, I should have done it a few years ago. That's okay. Doesn't matter how late you figured it out. The moment you figure it out, just push yourself as hard as you can, you'll make up for it. Allah subhanaw taala will make it up for you. Like he will accept it. That's why these names even though they accepted late, we still celebrate them every day.
Because it's not always about how quickly how early you were there. Even though being a pioneer is great. But it's how hard you you push during the time that you were there, the game late but you went as hard as you can. And that's all that matters. And that's what I didn't really didn't like that's what these people did. They felt that they have to make up for the fact that they were late. So they did they made up for it. That's why their names live with us till this day. That's why we still tell their stories. And we still make dua for them and hope to be like them and we wait for the next pilot didn't really next time up in the house and that's on top to come amongst them to
save it just like how to do the law and who saved them that they owe the Allah one who, well Allah.
I want to go back just as Hadith here that I put I put this here. So to remind me of what I wanted to talk about before we move on.
Remember, I told you I was saying, it's really nice to be the person on the team that people enjoy? That only happens if you if you have if you build yourself if you have strength, right? If you become someone who has a lot of skills, a lot of expertise, someone who was invested in themselves enough. That's how you become that that's what the prophet Allah is taught to someone saying, Look, you know, Kobe halen well, how buoyed Allah human at the moment of buying a vehicle in the moment why strength is more beloved to Allah Subhan Allah is more benefit from them than a movement who was was weak. And there is no talking about muscle. Even though muscle can be a part of this. I'm not
saying it's not. But strength comes in many forms. There's intellectual strength and mental strength and academic strength and social strength and financial strength. Be strong, be strong, be strong, build yourself that means you have to work hard because strength doesn't come on its own. It's not a gift. It's not given to you have to go you have to take it, you have to work hard so that you have strength, when you have strength, you have more value, and people enjoy it. Why don't you on their team, the Muslims are happy to have you on your team and you actually make a difference. We need an ummah that is strong, I need you to be strong. I need you to work on yourself and become strong.
Don't, don't settle for anything mediocre in life. Don't settle for it. Don't settle for something simple, please, please have ambition will lie, I can tell you this as a as an experience that I have had. And this is something you could take maybe for your own journey contemplation or thought process I have done these Halaqaat like in a different part of the world and a different time in my life. And I've worked with younger people. And I found that there's a there's a significant difference in in the amount of ambition for younger people. And where I used to work in where I work now, like in Canada versus maybe the Middle East. It was easier for me there to get people to have
higher ambition than it is for me here. It's much more difficult here. But the tools I used to use don't work here. It's like my sword is blunt. I can't I can't do anything. I don't have a way to get people to motivate people to have ambition to want to achieve great things to aim ridiculously high. I don't I don't know how to do it. Back in the mill, he was easier. All they had to do was just push a little bit. The spring was strong. I pushed down and told them you're going to be weak, and others are gonna gonna beat you because you were lazy. And they said, No, that's not gonna happen. And they work hard. But then here, I say you're gonna be weak and they go cry.
And they don't come back the next day and the parent comes in the next day, they yell at me for ever saying that. So I couldn't do that anymore. But that's not going to work. I'm sorry, I won't try that. Again. I'll try something else. But I don't have the tools anymore. I don't know what they are. So I need you to be ambitious. I don't know how you're gonna figure this out. And I honestly don't have the tools to make you you know, figure it out. But you need to do this. You have to aim high. Aim so high that you're embarrassed to tell the people you love how high you're aiming. Keep the ambitious sometimes the secret, like have ambitions that are so high. It's ridiculous, almost
almost impossible. It doesn't make any sense. It's not going to happen. That's the one. That's the one hold on to that one. Hold on to that one because that's what the prophet Ali assaulted said, um, did you remember in the Battle of the Trench where they couldn't go to the bathroom because I was scared you hadn't eaten in a week. 10,000 people were there to demolish them, and they can't even get rid of a boulder. So he hits and he tells them Allahu Akbar, we're going to conquer Persia. You're going to conquer the Roman Empire. You're going to conquer Yemen, to conquer conquer what? We can't even What do you mean conquer? We're starving. We can't even go to the bathroom. So Allah
Allah has abused that piece of hope, but maybe it's more ambition than it is hope. Maybe it's it maybe it's ambition. Maybe that's what needs to happen. Why aren't you ambitious? What what's holding you back? You're not believing in yourself. believing in Allah means that you believe you have to believe in yourself you believe you can't like if you believe in Allah and by default, by default if you believe in Allah them you have to believe in yourself you have no choice, or else you can't believe in Allah. Can you believe in Allah, that means you believe that Allah subhanaw taala destined you for something great, and that he believes in you and that he and that confidence that
you take from that should allow you to aim really high.
What else your belief in Allah subhanaw taala is there's something wrong with it. But if you truly believe in Allah, Allah in the law, that means, you know, that Allah subhanaw taala has said had put you here and you can do a lot. Now, whether you do it or not, that's really your choice I, there's nothing that anyone can do to make you do it or reach or fulfill that destiny that he gave you.
But maybe, maybe if
maybe if your generation decides to really aim high, be really ambitious, learn, to be selfless, to see someone who's qualified, put them in the right spot, not fight over something where they know they're not the right person. They put the right person in the right spots to get the job done. Allow people to take their places if they're better at something, because what matters is that this works. Maybe if one generation does that we turn this all around. When you think about it, what turned the world around for the profile, your Satoshi Ramstein, it was one generation. It was one generation he educated one generation and then he passed away. Like he wasn't there. He didn't lead
the battle of qadisiya or your movies didn't didn't lead those ones. He wasn't there for that one. He didn't he didn't actually witness the fall of these, these oppressive transgressive empires that existed about that, and he wasn't there for that, that happened, as a consequence of the investment that he put out here saw so many people, making them believe that they could do that, which is impossible for them to ever think about. Like they didn't they didn't believe in themselves the way he believed in the mother. His thought was, like he believed in them more than they believe in themselves. Like none of us are gonna do it. You're going to carry it one day. me illustrate Hola,
me. I can't even afford I can afford a sandwich. I'm going to I'm going to carry the I'm gonna carry the treasures of Kisara I can't I can't fix my my Shahada. Like I don't even have enough to buy a pairs of shoes, a pair of shoes, how am I going to he believed in them and they didn't want to sometimes you're scared to believe in yourself because you're not sure you need someone to believe in you. So maybe the older generation should do that a little bit. Maybe you need to do that too. Maybe you need to believe in the people who are younger than you look at that potential that they had what they can do love that potential. You know harness that nourish it, allow it to grow, tell
them to tell people you can do a lot I know you don't think so. But you can and you will just believe just don't Kerala just move just move and we're here to help you and support you and, and things can change so quickly for Omen nation has changed so quickly. All it takes is one generation of people, ours didn't really do the job. Well, I have to admit, we sucked in many ways. But I think I think the one coming has a little bit more maturity, a little bit more
realisation and appreciation for things. So let's see, let's see, let's see if you guys can move this needle a little bit a little bit better than than we did. Then we'll come back from from motor immediately after what we would have the preparation for hybrid happen now if you're just study the seal of the Prophet Allah you saw this and from from other books, you may find haber put in a different part of the sealer because there is difference of opinion of when it happened. That's just that's just the issue. The the scholars of Ceylon have not fully didn't have till this day still don't fully agree exactly when labor happened. So so if you find in the book somewhere that hybrid
was kind of talked about before Moto, it's okay, that's, that's fine. I tend to feel that it happened a little bit later, where I'm talking about it now. But if you argue with me that maybe happened early earlier, I don't think either I was going to fully win the argument. That's fine. You can totally believe that if you look at the evidence and think it happened earlier, but I tend to feel like it happened a little bit later. I have many reasons for that. It doesn't really affect telling you the story, honestly. So I'm gonna leave it out.
What you need to know about hybrid is the following from year four to year seven, it became the main problem for the Muslims after
100 itself the the Battle of the Trench occurred because of the of the advocacy of hyper hyper was a pretty big place. So is a breakdown it was it's around 150 150 kilometers north of Medina, it's not that far away. It's a very rich area very well protected around 40,000 trees, which is a huge number for for the for the region we're talking about, you're talking about. At the middle of the Arabia, which is a place that has a lot of is mostly deserts, 40,000 trees, 10,000 warriors, all of them properly armed, eight castles.
This is a castle that still exists today. This is what it looks like today. This is not from like Lord of the Rings. This is actually a castle that exists in Cuba till this day that they used to use look at this thing. They're massive. These things are massive. They're huge. These are castles that are huge. The Muslims knew no one ever actually
putting a siege around these councils and getting through no one historically no one knew the tribes that lived there from Al Kitab which are the tribes that moved by no no bleed and by no car no car and by no private those three tribes that tried to kill the profit out of your soldiers on three different occasions that were removed from Medina basically went to high bar now high bar became a spot where the cons were all of the conspiracy was happening. This is where
The conspiracy was going on. This is where the planning, the Battle of the Trench came for the planning of the two gentlemen, or even club and in Canada. And they both lived in Haber. And they went in advocated, they went double Soufiane. And they went out of fun and they went to other tribes. And they are the ones who actually put together the 10,000 army that try and destroy Medina, to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam tried time and time again, to bring them to the table for a negotiation of some treaty. And every time he did this, it didn't work out. They refuse to do it, or they broke it later. Or they continued to advocate meaning they would find out through intelligence
it find out that they paid a group of people, a lot of the battles that happened during the private audio Sato sometimes the small ones I don't tell you about because I don't have a lot of stories around them. It has nothing to tell you. A small city would go and dismember a group of people who are preparing to read Medina, he would do this all the time, like literally every week, there's a study going either outdoors might have been available in the genre, sadly, we will pass one of them is taking a group of 50 or 60, or 100. And they're going because there's an army that's starting to brew somewhere in the outskirts of of the region that was paid. And when they find them and they
hold them who paid you to do this.
While they will give us a little bit of the amount of high bar some of the fruits of labor, the how they will go with the labor law. So hybrid is 150 kilometers north of Medina, I don't think I'm not sure if I put a
I don't know if I have an actual another of the of the castles. These are their eight major castles, each Castle had a name till this day, you can go actually and see them there. They're actually very, it's mind blowing how huge these things were like, I think I think our region is a little bit underrated in terms of the actual any armor and the material military ability that they had at the time. They're not talked about as much as maybe they should, but then that's fine. Another example of some of these very well built structures.
So historically, they had never been been rated or no one has succeeded of actually getting through because you're talking about 10,000 warriors and eight huge castles and walls that connects all eight castles. There's nowhere in there is more food in there than the Muslims have in Medina. Like if the Muslims go and hit a siege, the Muslim army will starve like months before the people in the table even need to consider opening a gate to get food like they have enough food, they have enough water, there is no need for them to even consider any of that. So the Muslims have Oh yeah, it's really not much that they've got to do like but the provider you saw those, um, couldn't wait
anymore. The number of conspiracies that were coming from Cuba made this place a threat he had, he had LASR to Saddam to neutralize this threat. Now he didn't this wasn't a war like it's called Islam and no war actually occurred. He was able out he assaulted him like he did with Cora ish, like he did with what I drink Davia he was able to force their hand to treaty as well. And that treaty obviously came with with with taxation because the people of high voted refused to actually Yanni
accept his terms and they and they want to fight. But then they got scared, as I'll tell you the story in a few minutes.
From here, number four and number seven, they were the main threat to Muslims. That's why your number seven the Providence went after him. After the people came back, as far as I can tell, he had gathered them we need to go and neutralize this final, this final place some narration say that he actually went during the time of motor after he told the story, it took them a little bit to come back, he went and did this and he came back and they followed. So he would put together on 1400 men and women and the reason I say women because it was it was the highest percentage of women in a in any battle that we have. And that's just something that you see increase almost linearly throughout
his life it is thought to swim every battle the percentage of women within the battle kept on going up from budget to hunt up the mote that
the hybrid Captain goes up to fight the hammock it kept on going up they brought value sauce them involved more and more leaders in this giving them different roles. It wasn't always that they carried swords and font but they did a lot of other functions for the army to keep the army actually going. So this was something that the Arabs weren't used to whenever the Arabs took their women out for a war it was only for them to make the men never run out run was only to force the men who are carrying the swords not to run because if you run then the army is going to take your children and your wife so you have to fight till the end that was the only reason they did this but the provider
is awesome didn't never did that the women that left they had they had functions so it will fade out of Allah why and how was the physician and she actually built a team and they had a medical center that was there for every single battle people who came in for the take care of the food issues those who were there for like everyone had they had different functions when it when they went on these went all these conquests.
So let's see. I think I have Okay, do we have a Kahoot today? We do. We do. Okay, also this one story then I'll let you guys
in this whole Bible, only 9696 People buy it. We're talking about 10,000 words on the inside. 1400 on the outside
I 96 people altogether died. It wasn't it wasn't a huge battle. It was just little things that I'll tell you. I'll tell you kind of how it happened over the next week or so. I just wanna tell you the story of the young girl, because I love this story is one of my favorite.
So the prophit Islamism gathers the army. We're going for hyper. We all get together and they start moving. Halfway there, the robot as long as I'm looking around, and he sees a 12 year old girl
that comes to her and tells her
what are you doing here?
I call it courage to Monica jasola. I've joined the fight with you. We also hola
Carla Wayna about working Where are your parents? Because it's in Medina. They're in Medina. I'm with you. I'm coming with you.
Because I saw Sarah who is in charge of this girl, no one. He's on her own. She just left Medina, age of 12 to come and fight with the prophet Isaiah Santosa. Of course he tells a story but if any for our Cabernet Khalifa who, so he put me on his Campbell, but I came to help her with her. I stayed with him the whole time. Like this young girl stayed with the broad valley of Sodom throughout the whole time of Haber. So Milam kind of dilemma aka when there was actual some comp actually some combat Yala Nima and Nisa he took me and he put me with the tent of the of the paramedics he put me there, but fella mentality in America when the battle finally ended.
On Allah Allah you said Liberty law, the prophet Ali's on took a necklace from the bounty that was taken on that day. Bacala ADA Fulani are named they some narration say that her name was Khadija.
But the property is sold to us a little bit of a naughty, maybe
sentimental piece of act of mercy from Allah subhanho wa taala. Her name was Khadija and the property is sold to some got the hint. And he understood that's why in the back way back of this from this battle, he would go when he would he would do a little bit more he would visit the Friends of Khadija and he would do a little bit something that kind of stuck in his heart Ali Asad does I mean ever got overhead digital, all of his life, but this young girl they say that was her name at least that's what Miss Hulk says in his Mikaze
so he takes out the pillar and here's where it's moulana Where is she? But they bring her UCLA Talia I'm going to give you some money you gotta share this battle you came with us to fight you get to share by the pool for my dad to hear the hoo ha I put my handle to take it Bacala and it will be Sookie No I will I will put it on your neck, the whole file but anyhow Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam Nipah virus and put it on my neck the coliform Allah He Mahala to him on your behalf and I never took it off again. Well I will say to and to defend America Capri and I put in my will and may be requested this will be put in my grave with me. By the holidays God will pm on the day of judgment I
will take a whole new era suit Allah and also I hate to Pilla I'm the girl who had the necklace, Salah hottie who I used to have you said no, but Allah is the beautiful story the prophet is awesome had a specific appreciation for people who were Yanni for those who had a little bit more ambition and those who are who are young he didn't he didn't he didn't send her back with someone take her back to Medina. He appreciated her the fact that she actually thought she wants she wants to be with the Prophet she wanted to go out and do something that was of value she of course she's not of age to fight and she's but the Prophet Allah is awesome didn't want to break that spirits in her want to
keep it any any rewarded her for it as you continue to shoot someone like that will be committed to his cause out of the slaughter was down to a standard delay she dies and her children will too and their children's children because that's that's the value of doing something like that or believing in someone and offering them that that that encouragement. So and with that Angelica Anna will allow you guys in Charlotte to do the cahoots.
