Alcala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam la Umino Hadoken Hakuna hubba Alaihe min Viola de main Valley de la Riva nasiha Jemaine. Oh, come on Paul Ali salatu salam, respected brothers and sisters,
leadership and the management of the mosque.
I am honored to be here today for the first time in a formal capacity to talk to you on a very important topic from the Syrah of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe. Salam, I would like to thank the management for inviting me to for giving me this opportunity to share this very, very important event from the life of the messenger of allah sallallahu earlier Salam.
Before I begin
with the topic, which is the conquest of Makkah,
the conquest of Makkah
took place in the year, eight Hijiri.
Eight years after the Prophet sallallahu wasallam migrated to the city of Medina.
Before I begin with the topic, I would like to highlight a very important point. And that point is clearly stated in the Hadith I narrated
in the very beginning.
And the Hadith goes as follows It is narrated by Imam Bukhari in Qatar holy man, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, la you may know how to come Hatha, Akuna haba la he mean valid he have all of the evenness, he he mean that you will not believe you will not truly believe until I become more beloved to you, then your parents, your children, and all of mankind put together
it is a condition of Eman
for Muslims to believe in the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Of course,
with that belief must come.
love for the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
If you love anyone,
more than the Messenger of Allah, other than Allah Himself,
then you don't really believe.
So the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the hierarchy
is number two.
Number one is Allah, the Creator Rabbul aalameen.
Rabu salvati will Earth.
Number one is Allah Our dedication, our devotion is to Allah subhanaw taala. Number two, because Allah sent His Messenger to bring the message to us, we must respect him, honor him, and most importantly love Him. If we don't love the messenger of Allah, we will not respect him. And if we don't respect him, we will not follow Him. So in order to follow him and respect him, we have to love Him. It is a condition of Eman to love Him and to love the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you have to know Him.
It is very difficult to love someone without knowing the person.
And why did the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam give us three
Options that people love.
Number one parents
the most beloved people to you are your parents.
So much so that the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam has himself taught us how important parents are. And this is another lecture in itself, the rights of parents the importance and the significance of parents in Islam.
To put it in short terms, your Jana is under the feet of your mother's, according to one report in a Buddhahood
under the feet of your parents, the father and the mother
And the province of Islam was asked who has rights over me by a Sahadi Rasul Allah has said your mother three times and then he said your father
You cannot say Ooofff to your parents according to the Quran, in fact but when Allah talks about Tauheed
the next point Allah mentions in so many different verses in the Quran were bill. You know what Bill while they were Bill, Bill, wallet, any Asana Bill wallet in the point of being kind, and compassionate, and to be generous with your parents,
then the progress of something you have to love me more than your parents. Having taught all of that, he explains you have to love him more than your parents. And then he goes on to say
So if you don't love your parents, if you don't have parents to love, if they are passed away, then you have your children to love. And you know what that love means?
a child was in trouble, the parents will put them but put themselves online to save the children. Right?
Some parents will give their lives to save the children, they will do anything to, you know, when your child becomes sick.
If you look at a mother, she cannot sleep at night, the father will be running around. Children don't by the way, children don't know this. You know, most of us we do not remember what our parents went through. When we were children.
You know, when mother was carrying the child all night, the child is crying. The child doesn't know what the child is doing. The child is crying all night. Do you remember when you were crying as a baby? Does any of you remember? No you don't your parents do. Your mother does your father does when they were carrying you all night. All night. In some cases, I've seen this myself. I have children. I know what my wife and I went through.
And you still love that child who's crying online, you cannot sleep because of that child, you still receive that love.
on Allah. So the Prophet said, even your children and all of mankind put together so if you don't love, love your parents, if you don't love your children, then if anyone from mankind, you love them more than your parents and you will even more than them you have to love the messenger of Allah, Allah Allah, Allah. So there is no one like the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam in
humanity that we have to love.
We cannot love anyone more than him. This is a condition of a man. It is a short of a man. This is not something we can take lightly my brothers and sisters so in order to love him, we have to know Him we have to learn about him. If we don't know a person if we don't know him, and if we know more about other people, let's say we talk about
footballers, their youngsters a you know who are listening to me right now, if you talk to him about Ronaldo, they will tell you who the girlfriend is when he got married, how much his salary right, but teams he played for what year he moved from one team to another, all these details will be given right in most cases.
Then we talk about movie stars and people will know sports star superhero so called created self created a self appointed point, self appointed superstars.
When it comes to the Syrah of the progress, Salah Salem, very few Muslims will be able to
give us the details.
This shows us the most Muslims may not be aware of the life of the prophet Sallallahu Sallam in detail. We know the main events of the prophets life. We know the main events, right? We generally know the Muslims know. But when it comes to the details, we know very little about the sacrifices of the Progress Allah Salam, what he went through what he lost in the process of bringing this Deen to us how many things he did for us?
How easy it was for him to simply walk away from this responsibility he couldn't, he could not because Allah appointed him still Allah, Allah solemn. And for that reason, he fulfilled his duties towards Allah and towards this Oma.
So for that reason, we have to we have to we have to learn about him in order to love him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And once we start reading the Sierra more seriously.
With more care, we will see that our love for the prophets Allah Salam has increased. We become very close to the Messenger of Allah says Allah will start to imitate him will start to behave like him.
start to follow Him will start to follow a sunnah will start to love him truly
as he deserves to be loved.
So in order to love someone, you have to know them.
And there is plenty of information available on the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam. One book if I was to recommend for you, brothers and sisters to start with is a radical Matome or Hagar Matome is authored by chefs of your Ramadan Mubarak Furi Rahmatullah Allah who has since passed away.
He has done a brilliant job in bringing this information on the life of the book is awesome, in a concise form in this book, and the English translation is the sealed necta.
It is translated in into the older languages, well, you can find it in the older language. So there are so many languages you can find this book in. And there is no excuse for us to not read one book on the life of the prophet Sallallahu sallam, we read chunky volumes for our jobs, for our university work for our degrees for our A levels and GCSEs. We are going through chunky volumes. We reading so many books.
And we haven't read a book on the life of the Prophet salallahu Salam, does that make sense?
Doesn't make sense. So the conquest of Makkah. Why is it important? It is important because it is the most important, or one of the most important events in the life of the prophet Sallallahu sallam. This was when Allah showed success,
to the prophets, Allah Islam
with physical eyes, when the Sahaba the companions of the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam, who were, till this point, always cornered, always outnumbered. This was the point when they were able to rise and take MCE from the courageous people who had waged many wars against the Prophet and his companions, you might have gone through some other lectures on the battle of buzzer, the Battle of Ohad, the Battle of conduct, I'm sure you have attended those lectures, I'm not going to go into that. So the Qureshi is who were established in Makkah.
Predominantly, they had waged many campaigns against the Prophet sallahu wa salam to do away with him, to destroy him to finish off the Prophet salallahu Salam in his companions, because they were against the message. He was preaching simple. The prophets Allah Islam received a message from Allah in the cave of Hira. And the Prophet SAW, Selim came to the Meccans. And he preached that message, as he was told by Allah, and the message was rejected. And the people, as foretold by Baraka be Nofal, drove the Messenger of Allah out. Salallahu Alaihe Salam, when the messenger of Allah was leaving the city of Mecca, he looked back, and he was very saddened.
He was very sad and broken. He didn't want to leave Makkah. He loved Mecca.
He loved Makkah.
You know, this can only make sense to you when you have a very strong attachment to a house, to a city to a town to a village. And when you have to leave that place for good
it's not easy to do that.
It's not when people leave each other as friends or when husband and wife part from each other. Or when children go away for study purposes to another country. It's not easy to part right? The Messenger of Allah Salah son loved the city of Makkah daily, he looked back and he said all Maka, I do not want to leave you but your people would not allow me to live in this city.
So the messenger of Allah Salam, for him, this was a very special occasion. What was cause? What was the cause of the conquest of Makkah? What was the cause?
You must have heard about sort of how they via the Treaty of Abia whereby the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he's, he's signed or agreed upon a treaty between the Qureshi and the Prophet sallallahu sallam. This was a treaty of peace. The call the Qureshi is had already been fighting the Prophet. They have been already many battles between the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the courageous who were predominantly disbelievers to this day.
They signed a treaty of peace with the Prophets Allah Salam in how they BIA
and according to one of the clauses of the treaty,
those who ally with the Muslims are to be treated as Muslims as one party, and those who lie
With the crises are to be treated as one party as the Quraysh. So they were two tribes
who were in conflict with each other since the days of Jabalia because the Arabs before Islam were known for the tribal pride, tribal conflicts, tribal irritations, they were always fighting each other over petty things. And this is why Islam came as a blessing for the Arabs. These were a divided people,
they would fight over petty things. So Bhanu causa and Manu bhaker were two tribes who were in conflict with each other. So bonacasa had decided to side with the Muslims
and Brubacher were the allies of the Meccans the Qureshi is so after the Treaty was signed, it was agreed upon soon after Manu bhaker saw a chance to avenge some of the murders that had taken place in the past and they attacked Manu Kusa
and with them came some courageous in the darkness of the night, and they attacked verrucosa
and Qureshi is even supplied weapons to Manu bhaker Many men were killed, cut the long story short, the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam was informed about this conflict. And some people came complaining to the Messenger of Allah salaam, one of the elders have been Oza his name was amor bin Salim who was out he, he came to the province was alum, in Medina, and he came out with some very, very moving poetry in the Arabic language.
You see one of the best ways the Arabs had pioneered to express their concerns, the sentiments, the pain, the message, even even propaganda at times, was poetry.
And this is the lesson for us to learn
from this part of the prophets life, even the messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam himself used poetry very effectively, to his advantage. When the Messenger of Allah salsa was once attacked by American poet and his poetry. And poetry was very dangerous. Why was it dangerous? Can anyone tell me
tell me why poetry poetry was dangerous in the time of the Prophet SAW Salem at that time?
It could be beneficial, it could be very dangerous. Why anyone?
There is no punishment if you get the answer wrong.
It could promote hatred. Very good. It could promote hatred. Yes.
Okay, potential for manipulation due to one's eloquence, because the points were very eloquent. They could easily manipulate the masses into thinking things that are not true. Yes, absolutely. Thank you. And that was definitely one of the very powerful uses they had for poetry. Anything else? Anyone else who wants to take?
Partly, yes, points could be soothsayers that that that was true in some points cases? Absolutely.
So poetry was one of the most powerful propaganda tools today, what the media does, poetry did at the time of the Prophet sallallaahu Salam. So what you call the media today,
whoever controls media controls the minds of the people, not literally, but the minds of the people can be manipulated by the media, right? Easily. You put out information, most people will believe it, very few will question it. The masses will follow. Right? You can easily easily manipulate the masses by giving them any information. Likewise, at the time of the progress of the salon, the points did that job and that's why points were so valued. They were so cherished in that society to an extent that they were the demands the collections of seven points hanging on the Kaaba.
And this collection is collectively called Sebata Ma Ma ala carte, I don't know some of the Olimar some of the students here might have studied some of those collections. Seven hanging ones.
They were literally they were called Seven hanging wall. Malda cat means what it comes from the word more luck, wild luck means something hanging. Right? So these seven collection
of poetry were hanging on the cover for the Arabs to read them pre Islamic points. This is how valued poetry was, it was a very powerful tool. So this man, I'm Robin Salim came to the Prophet SAW Salem. And he expressed his pain
as to his experience with Brubacher. And what Qureshi is did in poetry. And the summary is that he cried about his pain and the suffering, and he invoked the Mercy of Allah, he invoked the help of Allah. And he said to the Prophet, that you have to muster an army to help us to support us to protect us, and we were attacked while we were in sujood and ROCOR. In other words, he was saying that we are Muslims and we were attacked by the Mexicans and the allies. Therefore you have to help us the Messenger of Allah Allah salami got so moved by his words, his eloquence, and his poetry that he said, Allah's help is coming. Allah's help is coming. So the messenger of Allah salaam was warned
about this incident. And this is what caused. This is what caused what we call the conquest of Mecca. This was the catalyst. This particular incident, the Qureshi is had deliberately broken the treaty by attacking one of the allies of the Muslims called bonacasa. The tribe was called bonacasa. So now the prophets of salaam had ordered the preparations for an expedition. Now we are going to Makkah. So before this happened, the Messenger of Allah Azza wa salam was told by Allah through ye that this has happened. So even three days before amor
was to arrive,
the Messenger of Allah subhanaw taala, Ayesha, the Allah, Allah to prepare his belongings, to prepare for journey. And I will walk around the ALLAH and he came
and he saw these belongings. He asked, I hear what is this? She said Allah He I do not know. I don't know what the prophets Allah Salam intense, but I have been told to prepare Han Allah. And three days later, amor arrived with his poetry. I'm going to arrived. I'm Robin solemn, arrived with his poetry and the Prophet Salah Salem. Then came another leader from Quraysh from Makkah, who had given refuge to some of the refugee refugees who had basically to save their lives who had come to the city of Mecca. And when they came to the city of Makkah, boubakeur, they held back they didn't want to do Qatal or fighting in Haram. Even they respected the sanctity of harem, the kuffar the
disbelievers at that time.
But on this day, they did not hold back and they killed the people of bonobos are inside Makkah. So one of the leaders was Bodell Benoit, aka Jose, who had given refuge to many of these Kuzari refugees, he came to the provinces and I mean, he give the details following arms visit he came to the Prophet and he told him, this is what happened. So the province of Assam immediately ordered the preparation for an expedition towards Mecca. Now, Abu Soufiane, the leader of the Meccans, who had already fought many
battles, damaging battles against the Muslims. I also have Yan was one of the heads. He was one of the leaders. And we know what he did in the Battle of our HUD.
And we know what he did in the Battle of 100. Where he managed to gather armies not one army is called
the Battle of conduct. The Battle of the ditch is also called the Battle of Azov, the Battle of armies. So this was Abu Sufian. I was a fan was a very powerful politician, a very powerful leader with a lot of influence. So when he heard that this has happened, he came to Medina to renew the treaty, to apologize, not so many words to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and when he came, the prophets of salaam had already told his companions not now watch, watch. Abu Sufyan will come to renew the treaty and this is exactly what happened. He enters Medina he goes straight to his daughter's house. Omo Habiba OMO Habiba is a wife of the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam. So
when Abu Sufyan comes to the house, he wants to sit on the bed of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and what Habiba she quickly drags the bed from him. He takes the bed away, so that he cannot sit on it. So Oh, Sophia and was shocked. He said, is it the bed that you don't deem deserving of
Me or you do not deem me deserving deserving of the bed. Which one is it? Is it the bed not too good for me or I am not good for good for the bed. She said you are a mushrik
you are a mushrik you're a pagan, you are unclean. You cannot sit on this bed. This bed belongs to the messenger of allah sallallahu Nessel Allahu Akbar. This was the Eman of OMO Habiba and this was her love and her respect, and for her honor for her husband, even though this man was her father. He did not allow him to sit on the bed of the Messenger of Allah, Allah hassle
and abuse of Yan was shocked.
So he went to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
trying to convince him to confirm the Treaty of Abia. We are still
under a treaty, there is no conflict between us the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not respond to him. He turned away from him did not speak to him. And then he went to Abu Bakar he knew. You see, even the enemy knew who to go to. They knew who to go, who to go and convince. So he went to Abu Bakar he spoke to Oba Kuroda, Lavonne. And he tried to convince him to convince the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Abubakar de la Juan did not respond positively. He said, I cannot do anything. Now. You have done what you had done. And it's done. Now there is nothing we can do. So he went to Burma. Next he went to even now, this is there is a lesson in this for those who
have doubts about the status of people after the Messenger of Allah Allah, Who is this abuse of yarn who is a Cavalier at the time, he's a mushrik. And Allah had given him so much sense that these are the people after the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam, these are the people who have some weight. These are the people to go to. These are the people who are important,
step by step in status, after the Messenger of Allah says alum. So he goes to Abu Bakar after Muhammad salallahu salam after Rasul Allah, he goes to Cuba. So this is some, you know, this is to knock some sense into the heads of people who have doubts about the status of the sahaba. And the line that comes after the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam, even though he is not a Muslim, he knows who to go to. So armor when he saw him, he said, you don't deserve any sympathy.
If I had anything to fight you, even as small as a piece of wood, I would fight you with that. I have no sympathy for you. So I'm rejected. I also can. Now Apostle John didn't know what to do. He went straight to Alibaba. Vitaly Rhodiola Juan, and he found Ali to be soft, softer than Abu Bakr and Omar. So Ali, he said, There is nothing we can do now. There was Fatima Raja lawan her there and there was Hassan as a child as a baby.
So I was a fan he requested from Ali to do something. And he said, There's nothing we can do. So he requested from Fatah Moto, the lawanna Tell your child to give me a man and give us a man. So if you can't do nothing tell you a child hasn't to give a man and Fatima Rhodiola she responded she said, My child is not big enough yet to give you a man and in the presence of the Messenger of Allah so Allah Salam, we cannot give you anything.
If he can give him a if anyone can give a man it is the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam. So Abu Sufyan, he asked Ali, what do I do now? Tell you what to do. Ali said, just announce peace just announced that you want peace and go, this is the least you can do. And this does not guarantee that nothing will happen. But just go and announce a man announced a man and leave. So busulfan went in the public place in Medina and he said, I want a man or I give a man basically I am I come for peace. I don't want conflict and he went. Now after he parted, he knew that the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam
will definitely come after Makkah.
Now the Messenger of Allah says Ahmed started the professions and it was the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah Allah Salam, when he would
command an expedition
for a conflict, he would basically try to send certain groups of people Sahaja Sahaba, as hoBRO soul to different directions, so that the enemy cannot know what the messenger of Allah says Islam intends to do. So that the intentions the true intentions of the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam are not known to the enemy.
So what is deception? Right? So if you intend to attack an area, you will send five different expeditions or three different expedition different directions. So the enemy is confused with where are they going? Where do they intend to go next, right? So the messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam, he wanted to keep
his intentions to attack Makkah secret. So he dispatched
an expedition with a Sahabi
to a certain place about 3536 kilometers or miles away from Medina.
And people thought, okay, the expedition might be going that way. And then later on the Messenger of Allah Solomon's companions, they realize that he is heading towards Makkah, so most of them joined Rasulillah Salam on the way to Makkah. 10 Ramadan, eight Hijiri was the date when the messenger of Allah Salam left from Makkah with his entourage with his followers, right, he made his way. Slowly, he was moving towards Makkah, and it would take
nearly more than a week for him to arrive. And he was moving with speed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so that the Mexicans cannot know what's coming.
So the Mexicans are caught
off guard, as they say, you know, they are surprised. Rasool Allah wa salam was a genius military strategies stretch strategist. This has been said by generals who have studied the battles and the strategies of Rasulullah saw solemn one of them is I Ikram, who has written many, many books on the battles
and histories of Muslim conflicts later on, historically speaking, he has written books on for example, Islamic Spain, and one of the books he wrote is on Khalid bin valie dragula Juan, his name is Akram I Ikram if I'm getting the name correctly, he was basically in the military. And he studied personally having visited the sites of the conflict, and he was of the opinion, the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam, he was way ahead of his times in strategy, way ahead of his times. This is why he surprised his enemies, Allahu Akbar. So this was no different this this conflict or this expedition was no different. So the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he made his way.
And then he had given specific instructions to keep this matter secret, until we arrive. Namaka what are the sahabi his name was hearted,
who had no relations in Makkah, except his wife and children and some other relatives, and he was not basically basically he was not a Qureshi was not American. But he had family in Makkah, and he was one of the companions of the province of Solomon Medina. So he had sent a letter to inform the Qureshi that the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam is on the move. So prepare, prepare yourselves. Now the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam was told through ye that this is what happened. So he commanded Ali Mina with olive and Zubair when awam to go with some of the companions to get this letter before it reaches the Meccans. So they traveled the travel they came across a woman who was
traveling on a camel in you know, that container that is placed on top of a camel is made of cloth. She was in that so they arrested her, reprimanded her, and they requested the letter. She refused to give the letter. She said there is no letter I have no letter. They had searched the camel, they had searched her belongings, the letter could not be found anywhere. So I live in a Vitaly Rhodiola Juan, he came back to her and he said,
the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam cannot lie.
And we know you have the letter. So either you give us the letter, or we will strip you naked to find this letter Subhanallah this was a very severe threat and to save the lives of the Muslims to save
for the greater good Albina Vitali, he threatened her with this because this letter can threaten the lives of many, many people. So she said, Okay, hold on a second. Wait, wait, wait, wait. So she said turn around. She told them to turn around so that they don't look at her. So she basically opened her hair and the letter was hidden in the hair. So she gives a letter
And the letter was from hottub, even belta. So Ali Baba Vitaly brought the letter back the Messenger of Allah read the letter Salallahu Salam, and he asked
him, What is this? And hardship said, Yasser Allah.
My family is in Makkah. And most of these people with you, who are going to MCI to attack MCI have relatives in Makkah, because the Americans, the margerine are Americans. So people like zware people like Pobeda injera people like Khalid bin release, for example, they have they are the armor of man, these are influential men, they have relatives, but I have none. No one like that. But my family's there, my children are there. So I wanted to do a favor to the Meccans not that they will defeat you, I have no doubt that Allah will give you victory, but I wanted to inform that so that informed them so that they are basically kind or soft or lenient towards my family.
So when Amara when Katara, the loved one heard this, he stood up and he said, Yasser Allah allow me to chop this monastics head off. I want to execute this monastic. This cannot be done by a believer, a Muslim, and the Messenger of Allah. So Allah Salam told him, No,
this is not a monastic
because he is from the people of bother. He is from the people above the people who fought in the Battle of buzzer so, why can they not be Mafeking? Anyone please help me the people of other people who fought in the Battle of other why can they not be monastic in how many words in in the first place? How many people fought in the Battle of butter?
313 Right 313 This is
the most commonly accepted number of the people in the Battle of other although some Alama they differ with the number but let's say we go with 313 companions of the Messenger of Allah so Why can not be one off again
okay, because the McAfee keynote already left brother said yes.
During the battle, they had a lot of trust in Allah.
Yes, but But I am asking Why could they not be Mafeking? Yeah, these are good reasons. But why yes.
Yes, but what caused you know the status Allah gave them there is no doubt that these companions of the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam have the highest status in the history of Islam.
So what's the hierarchy in Islam? Coming to you? What's the hierarchy in Islam?
After the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam, we have Allah Colaba or Rashi Deen. Yes, the Four Rightly Guided caliphs, some say five, because Hassan is also included Rhodiola and so the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam according to a hadith in Muslim Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah said, rightly guided caliphate will last 30 years after me after I go 30 years, rightly guided Kaylee's will rule you. So Ally Combi sunnah T was so not Al Khalifa or Rashi Dean Alma Dean embody upon you is my way my sunnah and the Sunnah of the rightly guided successes of mine, who are they they will rule for 30 years. This is what the Prophet said SallAllahu Sallam according to an authentic hadith.
So who are these people? Abu Bakar, two years,
Omar, almost 10 years of man, almost 12 years. And then Ali,
almost three and a half years, right. So what's that 29 and a half years right? remaining six months, Hassan was chosen to be the Khalifa after Albina Muttalib. And then Hassan rhodiola, Juan gave Bayer to mA via Rhodiola Juan he made so he joined hands with more Avia Raja Lavonne to unite the Muslims. According to a prophecy of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam looked at Hassan and he said this son of mine
this son of mine is a sacred
is a sacred why? Because Allah may unite two groups of myoma two groups of the believers through him. So Hassan brought two massive groups of the believers together and the outcome, the outcome was immense peace 20 years of mahalo
radula 120 is the rule of Mafia. It brought so much peace in the Muslim world that even the Christians testify to it. One of the Christian authors his name was John bobbin chi writing in Syria during the time of Moravia. This is a Christian author writing in the Greek language during the reign of Monrovia. He said there is so much peace in the world that we have never seen anything like it. Our ancestors, our grandparents have never heard of anything like it. And this was caused by
the humility of Hassan Rouhani allow Iran to bring the Muslims together after four years of conflict, when Albina Vitalia the law and came to power, he spent most of his reign trying to suppress rebellions and trying to bring Muslims together will lie. I want to mention this passingly once you read the bio biography of Alibaba with all over the lawn, and if you read it with sympathy, with an open mind and heart, you will start to cry. You will start to cry for Albina with Oliver on the lawn, the difficulties he went through, and I recommend the biography penned, authored by Sherif Ali Mohammed Shalabi, who has authored biographies of all of the four qualifiers and Hassan the
fifth Khalifa Hassan Rhodiola. One, he has penned biographies of them, so I strongly recommend for you to read the biography of Alban Vitali authored by so that you can understand what was the fitna about and why was it there in the first place? And what Oliver with olive another Sahaba went through? And why were the tested in this way? A lot of things will be they will become clear in your minds having read this book, based upon authentic sources, she share Ali Mohammed the Salafi is a very, very good historian. He's orthodox Alhamdulillah. He's from the Alesana and he has done a brilliant job in writing these histories for Muslim youngsters to read. So Hassan on the lawn was
the fifth Khalifa. So these are the top let's say five or four, depending on which opinion you follow. Then after them are Ashera MOBA Shara
who were promised Jana, by the Messenger of Allah, Allah Allah, then after them are the people of butter.
The Companions who fought in the Battle of mother then after them are those who gave birth to the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam under the tree.
Because Allah says in the Quran in surah, Al Fatah, how to be Lima chatango regime locka Radi Allahu annual minion in Juba you look at Dr. Dr. shudder. Allah is pleased with the believers when they gave you Bay are
under the tree. So these are the companions.

100 Let's say Okay, anyone Any other guesses? Almost almost 10,000 of them, almost 10,000 of them. One book alone documents the biographies of the companions of Rasulullah Salah Salem, it is titled also the lava fie Mahabharata Sahaba. It is by Imam Imola Thea. So if you want to read about the companions of the Messenger of Allah says, There is not a man in human history.
There is not a man when Allah says what a final aka decock what a final aka the croc, Allah says in the Quran that we will raise your remembrance or Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. This is demonstrated in the amount of detail we have about the people who were attached to his life. So Allah Allah Allah, we know the Sahaba his companions by names by what they did with the lived, how long they lived. These details can be found in the books of biographies, one book is by Ignacio title also the robber, right. So, the point I was making initially was that there is a hierarchy and in the lives of the Sahaba
we have to understand there is ranking okay. So I have already described that moving on to the point I was making about what was the last point?
Yeah, why are they not Mafeking? The people who fought in the Battle of buzzer the point I was making was, is because that battle was so difficult to take part in that anyone with with a weakness of Eman would simply not stand his ground. This is what you have to understand that time
Those circumstances were so severe. They were so difficult. They were so scary that the Sahaba with the Prophets Allah salaam, anyone with weak Eman would simply not stand with the Prophet and run away to save his life. So these 300 or so people stood with the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam facing extra ordinary odds, to protect the Prophet and to protect whatever was there of Islam. That's why the Messenger of Allah says Allah raised his hands so high, and he was crying to Allah, Oh Allah today if these people are killed, if these people are destroyed, they will, they will be nothing left on this world to say your name. And Abu Bakar was so moved by looking at the Messenger
of Allah salaam, emotionally he said to the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam that all messenger of Allah Allah will not reject you though, these people will survive. And that's why the people are bother coming back to hottub ignoble TA, the reason why the Messenger of Allah salaam stocked Amara was because hearted was present in the Battle of butter and the Messenger of Allah said, do not say this about him. In other words, he cannot be a monastic. In other circumstances, anyone else doing this would be treated as a traitor.
So this was an exceptional circumstance where a man had potentially harmed the Muslims significantly, it could have caused loss of life. So any other person doing this, in any other circumstances, he or she would be treated as a traitor. But because hottub was an exception, and the Messenger of Allah says Allah Himself was alive to testify on his part. He was excused. He was simply excused. But anyone else later on, caught doing something like this would be treated much differently, much differently. Right? So this is what happened. And then the Messenger of Allah Salam, he moved forward. And on his way to Mecca, he was joined by his uncle Abbas, who came with
his family to embrace Islam. So Abbas was very beloved to the Prophet sallallahu. Ala Abass was that same person who was the father of Abdullah bin Abbas, one of the most closest companions of the Messenger of Allah salaam, the expert of Tafseer, the Messenger of Allah system specifically prayed for Abdullah bin Abbas that Oh ALLAH teach him that we'll teach him tafsir and Abdullah bin Abbas became that scholar if you look at the books of the field today, most of the opinions on the understanding of the Quran comes from Abdullah bin Abbas and his students are ta Mujahid, ekra ma, l comma solemn, right sided bin Jubair all of these students are Abdullah bin Abbas, who took the
knowledge of tafseer from the teacher Abdullah bin Abbas and he was the son of Abbas bin Abdul Muttalib. So Abbas came with his family to embrace Islam with the province of Salem and he was accepted then later on. Moving on to another place where Rasul Allah solemn, was
in a place called Jafar or Jaffa, where he was joined by his cousin Abu Sufyan bin Harris, and Abdullah bin Amaya.
Abdullah bin Omiya and Abu Sufian. With Harris, these two cousins of the Messenger of Allah Salam, okay.
Abdullah bin Harris was the son of the prophets uncle. And Abdullah bin Omiya was the son of prophets, prophets aren't right, both cousins of the messenger Allah. But these two, they specifically, they harmed the professor Salam by many, many different ways.
Abu Sufian bin Harith was a poet and as I mentioned earlier, poetry would spread like wildfire in Arabia, it spreads today in a different form. Nowadays, poetry is mostly used for evil ends, what you call a spoken word, and you know, rap and other forms of evil music which our youngsters are hooked on, right this is also poetry, poetry can either lead to a ramen Allah or it can lead to shaitan This is a powerful poetry is it can really mesmerize you, it can blow your minds away, right? And this is why you have to be very careful. It influences you if you are listening to these rappers rapping away all jibberish they come you know they can think of and they are influencing you
towards a woman humanisation and drugs and music and the life of partying and all that this is all for shaitan
You are wasting your life because you're listening to the shayateen this human Shayateen who are glorifying crime who are glorying, glorifying evil, right. And amazingly, this form of radicalization, for some reason it is not haram in these societies, right? radicalization of one type is bad. Rightly so we agree that radicalization can lead youngsters to commit things they shouldn't be doing right. But at the same time, radicalization comes in different forms. Rappers talking about mistreating women using drugs using guns, right, promoting a culture that is evil. It is also radicalization, it is destroying our youth.
The reason why there is so much crime, knife crime, drugs related crime and other crimes and the youth are depressed because of the people they're listening to this show called poetry they listen to and they go after the so called Heroes and destroy the lives. Why don't we listen to moral poetry, which can lead you to moral ends. So this poetry
Abu Sufyan man Harris was uttering was against the Prophet degrading the Prophet Salah Salem. This is why the Messenger of Allah Salam put his own point on the member, Hassan min Tarbet in Medina to defend him whereby he said, Well I said I'm in column taka to a&e or Jamal Amin column Tala Denisa. Oh, holy Tom Oberon min Kali, Ivan Kanaka, called the CollectA come out to show that there is not a beautiful face. More than yours I have seen in my life a woman has not given birth to someone more beautiful than you are, you have been created, free of all false as if you were telling Allah how to create you, Allahu Akbar, this was Hassan min Taavet defending the prophets, Allah Salam against the
poetry of this man, abou Sophia and Ben Harris. And he came asking forgiveness, the solar system didn't want to forgive them. He was very upset with these two cousins of his cousins, blood cousins, and Alibaba Vitalia lawan. He told them to go and say what the brothers of use have said to use of Allah Salam. What did what did the brothers of use of Islam do to him? If you read the story, Allah He, it will make you cry. These same brothers they threw him in the well out of their own jealousy, right? Because the father
loved him the most because of his virtues, what Allah had bestowed upon him, and then they went and they said exactly what the brothers of use of La salaam said to use of the law he Laqad Thorac Allahu Elena. We're in canola, Hatha, in that you are better than us. But we were the ones who were mistaken. You are better than us. Allah gave you more virtues than us. But we were the ones who were wrong. Right. And the messenger of Allah Salam when he heard these words from the Quran, on the mouths of Abu Sufian manhire is a man who was uttering poetry against the Prophet Salah Salem. He responded by the next verse, la three baalei como yom, Yom for Allah hula come Wahoo our hammer Raha
mean that there is no recompense against you today, you are forgiven the word and Allah is the most forgiving May Allah forgive you Subhan Allah, can you imagine someone who was writing news reports, producing documentaries against you, right? And lying against you degrading your character attacking assassinating your character, and today he comes to you and he wants to forgive and you forgive him. So these two were forgiven. Then the professor solemn came to a place called Moral of the Quran. And that's where the promise was pitched is tense. Okay. And when the prices and unpitched is tense, this was very close to Makkah now, the prophet had commanded his Lashkar, his Jaysh to light as many
fires as possible. Why was he doing this? Why was he doing this? Anyone?
Please? Yes? Sorry.
Okay, good. Anyone else?
Okay, very good. So this was a war tactic Rasul Allah says, I'm told his companions to light as many fires as possible. So the the number looks big. And this tactic was used many, many times later on by many, many military generals like Timberlane Taymor, the lame. You know what he would do when He would attack a castle or fortress? He would simply get horses and tie trees behind the horses and he would make the horses run up and down to basically raise the dust. You know, when the trees can you imagine the trees are being dragged on us. So when the dust is being raised, what what does it look like? A big a big army. A big army has
against you. Right? So this is the kind of thing Rasulillah Salam, he said to them light. So Abu Sufian came out Abu Sufian with Hakeem and Hassan and other Qureshi, Sardar or leader, he came out with him. And they were looking at these fires. And they said, Who is this Musa Johnson because they still don't know the Messenger of Allah Swami is on the move. And they could not imagine that he would come so close to Makkah so fast. So they asked, Who is this?
And Hakeem, he said, This is bonacasa. He said, No, no, no bonacasa They don't have these numbers. They don't have this many people. This is not Monica.
So while they were talking to each other Abass bin Abdul Muttalib, the uncle of the province of salaam he was on the mule of the Prophet Salah Salem, he had come out to see if there are any
people any scheppers or someone like that from Makkah, he would tell them to go and warn the Mexicans and come and see the professor's and before the city is attacked and get a guarantee of security from him. In other words, before the city is attacked, and people start getting killed, you need to come out and seek forgiveness from the police and Solomon get a guarantee of security but he couldn't find anyone. What he found was abuse of yarn, and Hakeem and Hassan. So abuse of yarn recognize a boss and a boss wackiness of yarn because it was dark. So they spoke to each other. So a boss said there is no way out for you now. There is only one way. Come with me. And I will get you a
pardon. I'll get you a pardon. So abuse of yarn on the guarantee of a boss because a boss was the uncle of the professor salon. Abu Sufyan know if a boss is with me, that I'm not going to be harmed. So he writes on the mural behind bars. And when they are passing through the army, everyone looks at a bus and the mule and they step back. This is the uncle of the Prophet and this is the mule of the Prophet sallallahu. This is how much respect they had for the uncle of the Prophet. And the mule, even the mule of the prophets of salaam was a source of guarantee a source of peace for these people. Right. So when they passed by Omar Raja Lavonne when Omar saw Abu Sufyan So Omar said, This
Kaffir this enemy of Allah, what is he doing in your NOC camp? He said, Okay, let's kill him. So he went off to him. And when a bus saw this, he quickly ran into the tent of the Messenger of Allah says Allah with bubbles of air and he took him there. And a bus at Yasuda Allah I have given Amman to him I have given security to him. So almost said Yara surah Allah, this is the enemy of the ark, enemy of Allah, this man has done so much damage to us today. He is in our hands. And we cannot let him go. The Messenger of Allah says Allah many looked at this fiasco in his tent. So he said to a boss, take a piece of yarn away and bring him to me in the in the morning. So I was a fan was
brought back in the morning. And Rasulillah Salam told him, is it not clear to you that Allah alone deserves to be worshipped? You see in all of this, what was the what was the agenda of Rasulillah Salam, if you study the conquest of Makkah carefully, every single point the Messenger of Allah spoke, it was number one, there is no one worthy of worship, except Allah. Allah alone deserves to be worshipped. His agenda was Tauheed. His agenda was none other but Tauheed. He was here to raise
the word of Allah subhanaw taala. He had no other agenda. He didn't want to be called a macho man, the military general King Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam or something like that he had none of these agendas. In fact, we will see when he entered how he entered the city of Mecca. He did not enter like a conqueror, with a head high with haughtiness with pride, and killing left, right and center. None of that happened. Except in those cases where people attack the Muslims. Right? So he said I was a fan is not clear, I must have answered yes. If there was any other god, I wouldn't be here today in front of you. He said, if there was any other god, I would be I would have some help. But I
don't have any help. Therefore there is only one God, Allah is the true God. He said, What about me the message I am the messenger of Allah. He said about that I am not too clear yet. So a boss said, say the shahada before your head is removed. Okay? Because if the head is removed, heart doesn't matter. Right. So I was a fan. He accepted Islam. And you know, he accepted you can say whether he accepted Islam by force by pressure, whatever, but later on his later actions proved that he was a sincere Muslim.
He was a sincere Muslim. He sacrificed for Islam in fact,
Very quickly I want to mention something. When he was tested his Eman was tested. Like Allah says how to eliminate your tangara Jima as stubbornness and Utako and your Kulu Amana wahome Law you've known that you think you claim to be believers and you won't be tested like those who were tested before you. So in the Battle of Han, which happened after the conquest of Makkah, Abu Sufyan a new Muslim, a new Muslim, a very recent Muslim, right.
In fact, some people even doubted his Islam, I'm sure they doubted his Islam, some of the Sahaba right. And what happened in the Battle of Hernan when 20,000 arrows came down raining upon the Sahaba naturally, naturally, they ran for cover us harbor Rasul, they found the looked for cover. So the jump from the camels, and they were because 20,000 arrows coming down. It's like, arrows are raining from the sky. And then Rasulullah sallallahu was in the front of the army. He was left alone and who remained with him a bus and also found a bus, a new Muslim, and a booster fan, a new Muslim, and that's when a boss who had a loud voice, he called upon the people of butter, the people of Oh
God, where are you? And then the Sahaba they, they jumped from the cameras that we're running into the opposite direction to come and join the prophets, Allah Salah. So as harbor Rasool that he gathered, they came back to the progresses. And at this point, Rasulillah Salam was going straight into the enemy lines alone, alone, walking into the enemy lines, saying under Nabila, Kozub unblu Abdul Muttalib I am a true prophet of Allah, I am not a liar. I am the son of Abdul Muttalib, right, and then a boss and Abu Soufiane we're pulling the Prophet sallallahu columbaria Rasulillah you're going to get killed, you're going to you're going alone into the he said, I am not a liar. I'm a
true prophet of Allah, Allah will help me and who was with him, Abu Sufyan and Abbas if Abu Sufyan had any doubts in his mind, about Islam and the truth of Rasul Allah says, would he try to save the Messenger of Allah, he would be the first to run away, he would be hiding, so, so his Islam from his later actions, Allahu Akbar, and the Prophet was very happy with him. In fact, Venables of Yan was dying Rhodiola Juan, he said, Don't worry about me dying. Because after I accepted Islam, I did not say anything sinful. I did not make a statement that can be regarded as sinful. In other words, he became a very, very sincere Muslim. So I was a fan. He accepted Islam and a boss of the Allah one he
advised the prophet that this is the chief of Quraysh. We need to honor him somehow. He loves honor, because he's the chief of Gresh. So Rasulullah said, anyone who enters the house of Abu Sufyan is in protection.
Allahu Akbar. So then he said, Anyone who locks the doors from inside in Makkah is under protection. Anyone who goes to the Kaaba in Masuda Haram is in protection.
Others who are fighting and are not found in protected places, they, they status is questionable. Right. So abuse of yon runs back to Makkah. Before that happens, the prophet tells Rasul, the prophet tells Abbas to take a boost of yarn on a higher plane, keep him there, so that he can see the march of our army. So every single tribe
marches through in front of abuse of yarn, standing with a bus, he asks, Who is this, which one is this tribe, and a boss tells him this is this is so and so but also to him for example, he says, I have nothing to do with them. Then another tribe comes, he asks, Who is this? And then he is told is so and so these are so and so people. And the Lashkar, the JC is 10,000 People 10,000 Sahaba, 10,000 people, never before the Muslims had mustered this many people. Never before the Muslims had come together in these large numbers. This was the largest army assembled by the prophet. Previously, maximum number was 3000. or less than that, right? But this was the highest number. So every single
tribe that had become Muslim, when they were walking or when they were marching through this past wearables of understanding, you would ask Who are these people? So when the messenger of Allah Salam came protected by his companions, and he was completely protected by iron clad
people with armor defending the province as alum, he asked Who are these people? And a boss said, This Rasul Allah says, certain protected by his companions, he said, Allahu Akbar, these are my people. And these are my people, and I expect kindness from them. So now it was a fan had completely changed his perspective on Islam and Muslims had changed. Sometimes power is needed to wake people up. Sometimes power changes minds when
simple reasoning is not working, where simple reasoning is not working power works. And this was one of those cases where Apostle John could see the power of Islam and Muslims and he changed and this can be seen in the history of Islam. Plenty of times look at the history of Ottomans and other Muslim dynasties you will see how power shifted dynamics in many many different ways. I know time is
not on our side so I'm going to quickly go through the content and finish inshallah with all the major details so it's not long inshallah I will finish very very soon my brother's be patient with me Inshallah, then we can do a q&a as well if you want. So, I was with Yan saw all this. And then he ran to Mecca having having seen the army and the size, he ran to Mecca, and he came across the Meccans, the chiefs and he said, hide, there is no way that we can fight this army, Hynde, the wife of Abu Sufyan, who was a very staunch enemy of the Islamic establishment to date to this day, until the conquest of Makkah took place, she grabbed a piece of yarn from the moustache and she said, may
you be destroyed?
And she said to the people of Makkah, don't listen to this man with thin legs. Don't listen, she's talking about a husband by the way. So this was the character of him the very hard character very How do we know this is the same woman who chewed the liver of Hamza
and according to some reports, she was one of those people who was not to be pardoned because of the crimes she committed against the Messenger of Allah Salaam. Right? So she was still trying to encourage the Meccans to put up resistance and abuse of yarns that don't be deceived by the words of this woman. Don't listen to her she will destroy you don't fight this army you cannot. So they said what do we do now? He said anyone coming into my house is under protection. He said how many people will your house take? Your house cannot take the whole population of Makkah. So where we gonna go? He said anyone who locks himself inside his house is protected. So all those people who heard this,
they ran to the houses, and then the third option was haram Masjid Al haram and those who couldn't go back to the houses, they ran to Mr. Hanna Rasul Allah Cecil, Matt split the army into three, three portions Khalid bin Walid, entering Makkah from a lower point. So Bear bin awam, entering Makkah from a higher point, and the foot soldiers, so to say we're led by Abu Zubaydah Bingara. So from three different directions the army entered, and Zubair was ordered that you get to a certain point and you
put my flag there as a sign of our takeover, and Insha Allah, wait for me until I arrived, the Messenger of Allah Salam had commanded obey to do so. So Khalid bin really basically
when he was entering
Makkah from his point, some of the Qureshi is who had been encouraged by some of the chiefs, some of the youngsters of Quraysh hotheads, you always find them in every single group hotheads, they don't listen to the elders, right. You know, this phenomenon, right? There are always hot ads there to spoil things for you, right. This is why it is so important to listen to your elders. When your elders are advising you and not one of them. A group of them a committee of your elders is advising you about something, listen to them, listen to them, because they might know better than you. So these hotheads, they decided that they want to fight the Messenger of Allah Salaam and his army. So
in a place called 100 Ma.
Khalid bin the leader of the Allah Who and he met a group of Qureshi is led by a chroma Ben Abidjan, a chroma basically,
they fought, and some crashes were killed immediately. This was the only skirmish by the way. This was the only skirmish that take place. This was the only violence on the day. And when it was found, was looking at the armies at that time. So had been Obata who was the leader of the unser, who was the leader of anzar. He basically went forward and he
he said, with the flag in his hand, today is the day of Mahama today is the day of slaughter in other words, right? So I was a fan heard him saying this a yo yo man Hama, Yamato Hello Herma. Basically, today is the day of slaughter. All the sanctity has been lifted, sanctity of life has been lifted today. So sadly, no Baba was not occur. He he was from Medina from the unsought. So when Abu Sufian heard this, he told him that he went to the Messenger of Allah and he said, you know, we heard this
being said by one of your companions, and at that time of commandment, a final the last one. And I've Drumond been off the boat send to the Messenger of Allah salaam, to restrain to restrain Saad, before there is a slaughter because his intentions are not very good. So Rasulullah said to the contrary, today that they have mercy, today is a day of pardon. So he sent someone to take the flag from sod, and give it to a son case placed inside bin Obata, who was also a big military leader later on.
And his history is also very, very interesting. I don't want to go into that because time is short. So I was a fan. And his companions were obviously taking refuge. And at this time, in this place called Panama, a conflict took place between college valine and the group led by a Karma Akarma when he saw men dying, obviously, Khalid bin really tried to prevent them. He told them, there's no point don't fight. No, no benefit. They still fought and
nearly 10 Qureshi is were killed in this skirmish and a chroma he left the battlefield. So it's fun when Amaya and they ran away. safarnama Yo was another enemy of Islam till this day, the runaway Nkrumah escaped with his life sorted Safwan. So
at that point
Rasulullah salaam hence had entered
much of the Haram he came. And when he entered salAllahu alayhi salam, his head was so low, that His beard was touching, touching the saddle of the camel. Now literally
Rasulullah sallallahu wanted to make a point out of this, that his head was so low, that he could not see what's around him, he kept his head so low that His beard was touching the saddle. You know, in order for your beard to touch the saddle, you really have to low lower your head. And why was the messenger of Allah son doing that, to show his humility, to show his humility, that this is a day of mercy, we are not here for revenge, and he had put his head down, not with his chest high with his head high like generals, when the Conquer generally speaking in history, when they enter the enter with a lot of oppression, a lot of destruction, a lot of killing. Today, Rasulullah saw him he not
only prevented killing, he in fact, himself was in such a humble form, that everyone testify to it. They could not believe that what kind of conquest of this, what kind of what kind of Conqueror is this? So when he entered much of the Haram, he saw 300 idols, around the Kaaba, and on top of the Kaaba. So Rasulullah sallam, he cleansed the Kaaba, from these idols, he had a bow in his hand, you know, the bow and arrow, he had a bow in his hand and he was dropping the idols pushing using his bow, and at the same time, the Messenger of Allah says Allah was saying the words out to be lemon chatango regime, Jah Huck was article bottle in oil bottle akana the hookah the today the truth has
come and falsehood has perished and falsehood is by nature perishing. And also Lhasa Salam, he.
After cleansing the Kaaba cleaning the Kaaba from these idols. He shut the doors from inside Bilal, and Osama bin Zayed were with him inside the Kaaba Rasulullah Salem, walked towards the wall facing the door. If you go to the Kaaba today, you see the door right, you see the door, right, the wall facing the door, Rasulullah Sicilian walked towards that wall, and he faced the wall, about three hands pan away from the wall, he prayed salah, in that corner, and then he came out and he delivered a speech and he told the Qureshi is that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah again. When he comes out the first thing he says no one is worthy of worship except Allah and there is no
partner there are no partners on to him, okay, he has fulfilled his promise. And today we have entered in
in droves, and then he said certain things about
you know, about how it is not permissible anymore to indulge in Riba and he said, all the river all the usury all the interest of the Qureshi is is under my foot. More so firstly, primarily my own uncle's usually a bus men Abdulmutallab rhodiola, Juan he was known to indulge in usury interest he would give money on interest. So he said, I will start with my own family. The interest the usually the river of my own
Above is under my foot. In other words, the Messenger of Allah says me saying all the usury is abolished and all the murders of Dahlia
murders that are causing disturbance to this day are forgiven. There is no more revenge don't kill each other over murders of the past. So a messenger of Allah says salam said these amazing things and finally, to put the Qureshi is on the level to bring them down from the pride okay, because the Qureshi is are known for their tribal pride. We are the Qureshi is we are the children of so and so in the genealogy and they all have that they had this tribal pride Rasulullah son told them that yo pride in your tribe is nothing is under my foot is under my foot. In other words, he read the verse from the Quran I will be Lima chatango Nigeria Yohannes in moluccana comin Dockery, Amin, amin
Dockery, one SA, Allah come Shoo, shoo, shoo Reuben Wakaba Illa de RFO in a crock, Accra Macomb en de La Jolla, Takako in the Lucha Alim and Fabio that, oh people,
we created you from one male and one female, right? What's your Allah come? Joe Lubin Wakaba IL and we made you in groups and tribes Lita RFO so that you know each other and the best among you in Accra Macomb in the La Jolla talkin, the best among you is the one who is most Allah fearing Allah conscience, right? In the Allah Allah on hobby, Allah is the most knowing and informed. So Rasulillah Salam is in other words telling the courageous your pride in your tribe is nothing is nothing. So today, there will be no revenge. But then
there were few people who were not given pardon. Okay. Before we get to that insha Allah Tala, I want to mention this, that there were certain people who had harmed the Messenger of Allah Salam severely, severely, they had done a lot of damage. They had done a lot of lying and a lot of harming of the Messenger of Allah Salaam. And who were these people? Okay. For example, one of them was Abdullah bin cuttle. This was the same man who would pay two of his slave girls to sing
poetry against the Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah, to degrade to insult the Prophet sallahu wa sallam. Then Abdullah bin Saud bin Abi sorry. This was a man who was a Muslim, he had accepted Islam, and then he apostatized and he went back to Makkah, he ran away back to Mecca. Right. Then a chroma bin Abi Johal, one of the biggest enemies of Islam. Right. The son of the biggest enemy of Islam, Abu Jamal, then Harris, Bin LaVale bin Wahab, then Mocha is bin Sababa then her Barbin us words, this man was basically he was attacking the daughter of Rasulullah Salaam and she was migrating from Mecca to Medina, Zina when she was leaving, leaving Makkah, this man, her Barbin us
what he was walking next to her and saying insulting things to her any poked the camel, and Xena fell from the camel, and she had a miscarriage. She was pregnant at the time and she had here this was a man who did such a crime. The Messenger of Allah says and said 10 people or nine people, even if they are hanging on to the cloth of Kava, what does that mean? GABA has the most sanctity. But even these people are such criminals. They don't deserve any sympathy or any mercy of any pardon the such criminals, if they are hanging on to the cloth of Kaaba, they are not to be spared. And some of them were indeed executed. Others are not because they had come to seek the pardon of Rasulullah
salaam, then, those two female slaves of M Nakata. They were also part of this. And
some people they say, Hindi, Hindi and washi. Hynde, the WiFO was of Yan and washi, the man who killed Hamza in the Battle of jihad. They were both part of this list. So some of these people they came and they sought pardon. Abdullah inside going to be sir, he came to Earth man, not the Allah on an Earth man gave him a man and he brought him to the province of Salem. The Prophet was initially not accepting his pardon the Prophet. This was a very important man remember this name? Abdullah bin Saad bin a bizarre because later on, he did wonders for Islam, Allahu Akbar. You see,
the Messenger of Allah says salam did not want to accept his pardon, but
Allah had another plan from Allah. You see, when Allah tells the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam in the Quran only dilemma chatango regime Bismillah R Rahman Rahim in Culatta demon Bata Wallach in the La Jolla demon Yasha Wahoo Allah mobile Motorin O Muhammad you cannot guide those you love. It is Allah who gives guidance and he knows better who deserves guidance. So this verse was revealed about Abu Talib Obatala when he was dying, Rasulillah Salam told him say lai lai Allah, the sage and I will argue on your behalf with Allah subhanaw taala but Abdullah Abu Talib he said Allah, Allah Milla T Abdulmutallab IDI on the way of my father, in other words shift. Right? So this verse
was revealed revealed to comfort the prophet that you are not to guide guidance is in the hands of Allah. Right? Allah guides whom He wills. Likewise, if the Messenger of Allah says and doesn't want someone, it is Allah, who can choose guidance for such a person. Abdullah bin Saad may not be sir, had already apostatize from Islam once and the Messenger of Allah Salam was not inclined to accept his pardon, but he came with us man. And the messenger of Allah kept quiet three times was man, he said Yasser Allah pardon him. The Messenger of Allah kept quiet. He was waiting that some companion of his would take action and execute Abdullah bin sadhana be sir, but no one did this. So Rasulullah
Saddam finally accepted his pardon.
And it was Allah's decree. This was called the you know, this is this was Allah's god.
when he went away with with man Rasul Allah, some turn to his companions that why did you not take action? I was silent. I didn't want this man's pardon. And the companions said Yara, so Allah you should have gestured, you should have made a signal from your eye. And the messenger of Allah said who was a graceful man, he said, It is not befitting of a prophet to gesture from his eyes, you should have known and they said, Yasser Allah, we had no idea. But now he's pardoned was accepted. He became such a huge, such a huge benefit to Islam, that later on, he was appointed as the governor of Egypt by Earthman, megafaunal, viola, one, a governor of an entire country, Abdullah bin sodomy,
sir, and he conquered many, many territories for Islam, the same man who had apostatized once, and he came back to Islam repenting, and Allah used him for many, many good things. And there can be many more examples today where people are confused about Islam for some reason, they don't understand and they go away and we start cursing them, we start telling them Get lost you are you're not deserving of any sympathy. And when they want to come back, we don't accept them. We don't accept them. We should leave this to Allah subhanaw taala let Allah be the judge. If someone wants to repent,
bring them back. In fact, if someone is a more thug, if someone apostatize from Islam, for whatever reason, be kind to them in the sense that try to give them data, try to bring them back. Okay? Give them Dawa. Try to convince them that maybe you have confusion. Maybe you have misunderstood something about Islam come back to Islam. And if they decide, don't use their past against them, because you don't know what Allah will do with them in the future. They might surpass you, they might be praying better than you. They might memorize it. They might they might become a Daya calling people to Allah How do you know one lie? I know an example like that. Allah he I know a
brother like that. I'm not gonna say his name. He apostatize three or four times from Islam.
He was a mortared from Islam three or four times.
I know a brother personally, I'm not going to say his name. He's a very famous public figure now.
Okay, three or four times he apostatize in Islam from Islam and brothers, generally speaking, understandably, they were very repulsive against him. They were very, very angry with him that why is this guy playing this ping pong with Islam table tennis, it's like a table tennis match. I'm out. I'm in I'm out. I mean, what kind of games is this? I said to the brothers, be patient with him. Maybe he has challenges. Maybe something's going on in his mind. Maybe he doesn't notice or maybe he's not fully convinced. Maybe there is a problem. Be kind with him. Be kind with him. There is nothing that you can do. There is nothing else you can do in a case like that. And Allah He now May
Allah given Sabbath, may Allah give him a bath and strength and his Takoma today, Allah He, He is doing the officer Barilla and he's calling hundreds of 1000s of people to Islam.
I am I'm a witness to that. And we pray that Allah given about we pray that Allah give him strengthen his TOCOM so that he can continue with this. So this was an example of Abdullah bin Saud bin and besar.
I do apologize brothers for the length of the lecture.
This topic is so vast, this cannot be simply covered in a short time. So that's why Inshallah, finishing very, very soon is ending now. So a lot of these people were pardoned, four of them were executed despite the fact one of them was hanging on to the cloth of Kaaba. This was a blue Hottel, who was handing on to the Kaaba and one of the companions are Rasulillah Salam killed him he was the man who has to pay to women to sing derogatory things about the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam her Barbin Aswad the man who had poked the daughter of the Messenger of Allah system to an extent she fell and she lost her child was pardoned. Allahu Akbar. Can you imagine? So this was not a
personal fight. This was not a personal fight for a sort of Lhasa Salam. This was not a personal grudge. Okay, this man came and he sought forgiveness Rasulullah Susteren forgave him, the man who was responsible for the death of the unborn grandchild of Rasulullah Salallahu Salam, because the daughter of the Messenger of Allah fell from the camel, right? washy. The man who had killed Hamza came seeking forgiveness. And Rasulullah Sallam told him go, but do not come in front of me because you remind me of my uncle's death. So while she stayed away from the Messenger of Allah Salam, but this was the same washi who wanted to do something for Islam, so that he can undo what he had done
In Jabalia. In cover, he had killed one of the greatest Muslims, the uncle of the Prophet Hamza, one of the most beloved people to the Prophet, he had killed him. So now he wanted so in the battle of yamamah washi was the man who Javelin just like he did with Hamza moslem al Qaeda, the man who had caused major problem for the Muslims in the Arabian Peninsula. You know why Muslimah was dangerous. Mo Selma had an army of 100,000 men, Bono Hanifa Bono Hanifa was one of the strongest tribes in Arabia, against which the Sahaba fought and this is why this was one of the bloodiest battles, the Sahaba fought after the death of Rasulullah salaam, the Battle of yamamah, 70 alfaz 70 Coura were
killed in this battle. And it was in this battle when washy he threw a javelin and killed Muslim al Qaeda. So this was his way of trying to get back some favor from Allah subhanaw taala right. So Allah knows whom he wants to get Hynde who was hiding
because what she had done, she came back when the professor's started taking back from women, the pledge of allegiance from women, right. So when Rasulullah saw was behind the curtain and the women was they were on the other side, he started saying to them, okay, pledge allegiance with me, that you will not commit shirk, you will not worship idols. They all agreed.
And then he said, You will not kill your own. You will not steal,
you will not steal. So hen spoke up very quickly, when she was listening to the buyer, and the prophet is not aware that hint is behind the curtain. And she's one of those people who has committed crimes against the Prophet and she's hiding, but she could not hold herself back. He said, My husband, Abu Sufian is a very stingy man. So sometimes I take money from his pocket, is that okay?
He smiled when he heard this. He you know, he could not hold back and he smiled. He said, Who is this is this hint? And she said, This is him. He said yes, you can take what you need, but not more than that. Right. Then he said that do not kill your children What are taught to do Allah rasool Allah says some said one of the clauses of the Bayer when I talk to Allah calm, she said, we give birth to children and you kill them.
You know, she was referring to one of her sons handler, Venerable Sophia who was killed in the Battle of ahead, right. She said, We give birth you're telling us not to kill our children, but you're the one you're the one who was killing our children. So you killed so Rasulullah saw many heard this year and Omar bin Khattab when he heard this, he was laughing so much that he was on the floor laughing you know when he heard this, because it was funny. So when was responding to everything Rasul Allah says Allah was saying, from behind the curtain and Rasulillah Salam he at Baba Swami had a big smile on his face when he when he heard this, because he knows why he's taking
the pledge of allegiance but Hynde was, you know, he was in a humorous mood and Rasulillah Salam did not get offended by all these things. You so this is there's another lesson in this for us from the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salaam. This is one of the this is one of the biggest enemies of Rasul Allah. You know, this woman was not an ordinary woman. This woman was the woman who on the battlefield, was singing songs to do what to encourage the kuffaar to attack the Muslims. She was a her Obeah she was part of the conflict. She was actually an actor.
A proponent of destruction of the Muslims and Rasulullah Salaam is still very much lenient towards her. Right? So she said,
then Rasul Allah said you will not commit adultery. And she said, How can a free woman commit adultery? We are honorable women. We don't commit adultery. Subhan Allah, yo, this was a catheter. This was a Musharaka. And until that time, right, and she's saying, How can an honorable woman a free woman commit adultery? Right. So they gave Bayer and prophesied Salam accepted her Bayer she became a Muslim. Right? She became a Muslim, and she was the mother of mahavidya. Raja lawan. Okay, the wife of Joseph Yan. And this is one of the reasons why this family is so controversial. Because of the history people use the history against them, but not see what they did in Islam. People don't
see what they did in Islam. People see what they did before Islam, but that can be used against anyone Amr. Okay. Khalid bin Malik, he was single handedly responsible for killing 70 of the best, some of the best Sahaba of Rasulullah Salaam in the Battle of HUD, so this can be used against anyone. So Rasulillah Salam, he stayed in Makkah after the conquest. For 19 days, most people of Makkah, almost 2000 People accepted Islam in one day. They made a long queue and they gave Baotou Rasulullah saw them one after another. And Omar bin Khattab was on behalf of the province of salaam while the prophet himself was present. He was taking Bell and Rasul Allah says and could not be
openly exposed to them because some of them wanted to kill him. In fact, one of the people he came, he came close to the Prophet to kill him and he was making tough on his camel, the progress of Solemate off on that day, he did not he was not in a haram. So he simply made the off on the camel, and he saw a man coming close and Rasulullah sysm told him You are coming with this intention. You are coming with this intention. And he said the sugar lie lie the lower shadow no Muhammad, Allah, how did you know what I'm coming for? How did you know what I'm coming because he was going to kill the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and Allah exposed him through the prophet Sallallahu Sallam so
unser, once they saw that Makkah has been conquered, and the people of Makkah, have accepted Islam in droves to thought this was the largest number of people who came to Islam in one day. 2000 people, including the chiefs, some of them Subhan, Allah, those who had run away even they came back Safwan Manomaya, one of the biggest enemies of Islam, he came back and he said to the Prophet, give me four months. So to give me two months to think about Islam, the Prophet said, you have four months, you have four months, think about it, but then after that, there is no option. Right? And then the prophets, Allah salam after the conquest, he sent expeditions to different places with the
different Sahabas to go and destroy the idols like Rosa and whatnot, you know, the idols they used to worship, so they had shrines, they are temples dedicated to these idols. So Khalid bin where he went, and he destroyed and armor been asked, he went and he destroyed monarchy. And there are details you can find in the books of sera inshallah Tala then a chroma Vinoba, who had run away, his wife came to the Prophet salaallah Salam, and she begged for pardon. The province of Assam said, If you accept Islam, you can come back Subhan Allah ekra The son of Abuja, all right, he came back, the wife, you know, subhanAllah look at the loyalty of these people's wives as well. She was the wife of
a karma. She came to beg the professor's to forgive her husband. So he she went to get her husband. Today, our sisters Subhanallah you know, we need this kind of loyalty in Islam. Islam deserved this loyalty more than, you know, in any in any other in any other way of life, let's say right, this was this woman was new to Islam, potentially, if she was Muslim at the time when she came to the provinces. She was so loyal to her husband, she wanted the best for her husband, she came in the provinces and said, Okay, bring him back. So a Karma came back, and he accepted Islam. And the Prophet was so sensitive about karma, to an extent that the Prophet would tell the companions of his
not to insult his father in front of him. Don't insult a Buddha Hall, the worst enemy of enemy of Islam. Don't insult him, because it will hurt a karma. It will hurt the son. Don't insult him. Subhan Allah and Nkrumah the same man, you know how he died? You know how he died? Subhan Allah.
You know, in Cofer, he was very upfront, very, very active against Islam, to an extent that he was one of those people who fought on the day when others had given up most of the Meccans they had, you know, lost the ground. They didn't want to fight. They had lost the will. But it
Rama was one of those people. He said no way. We're not giving a Makkah without a fight. This is a karma.
Strong In Jabalia strong in Islam in one of the battles against Romans. In one of the battles against Romans, a Karma he saw the line of the Romans. Outnumbered, outnumbered immensely outnumbered Allah. This is another history which we need to tell. You know our youngsters how the Sahaba they fought in the Battle of Goddess here they fought in the Battle of yarmuk out number by far, and a chroma heat turns to the Muslims. His brothers, he says, When I was in Jabalia, I was very, very brave against Islam. I was very brave against Islam. Today, Allah has given me a chance to be brave against Cofer, and he galloped his horse. He charged his alone, while Harley had been
bullied was trying to stop him. Don't do this alone. He threw himself on the lines of the Byzantines, the Romans, and he slayed while he was there with them, he killed many Romans and at the same time he himself was killed. This is how he Chroma lost his life. Radi Allahu Han. And this is how Allah gave him shahada, Subhan Allah. You see, this is the kind of character these people had. Allah had chosen them for a reason. This is why Allah gave the world to them. Allah conquered the world through them. These people went from China, from the from the lands of Afghanistan all the way up to North Africa conquering and no army could stand in the way the Romans were defeated. The
Persians were defeated. The North Africans were defeated and the Spanish army led by King Roderick, with 100,000 men fighting Tarik bins yard leading 12,000 Men 5000 Arabs and 7000 barbers defeated them in the Battle of Gods he called the sia 12,000, Sahaba
and 150,000 Persians, the Sahaba beat them in the Battle of yarmuk, one of the largest armies assembled against Islam ever in the history of Islam, up to 200,000 Romans against 40,000 Muslims, and they were routed forever never to return to the land of belaga sham never. That was the end of the Byzantine, the Roman rule on the land of below the sham.
How did this happen because of the characters of these people, they were not scared of anything facing them. So Nkrumah was one of those people who came back and accepted Islam and Rasulillah Salam, pardon these people. And then after this having stayed 19 days Rasul Allah, Allah returned to Medina and InSAR were very worried. The unserer knew how much Rasul Allah loved Makkah, they were very worried that now Rasulullah Serra might, you know, change his mind. But the Messenger of Allah wa sallam, he said to them, don't worry, my living and my death is with you. I will live with you and I will die with you. And he fulfilled his promise. salAllahu alayhi salam, he returned to Medina
and he died in Medina later on of course, nearly three years later, so I will stop here now. I have spoken for longer than I expected, because the topic is so deep and interesting. It requires details. I hope the brothers learned something today. And any mistakes made by myself are purely mine. And I ask Allah to accept from us whakaaro dharana Anil Hamdu lillahi rabbil aalameen Zakouma Lohan for your patients for sitting for so long and listening to me May Allah bless you male accept from your mela make this knowledge beneficial for all of you. I mean, I mean, so if there are we taking questions? Oh, no.
Yeah, brothers, you're free to leave now. You're no longer hostages tonight. You're free to leave now but if anyone has any questions we'll take one or two inshallah Tala.
