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

In the life of a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:00:04--> 00:00:12

and we discussed this land the Mirage and we've discussed the hijra, and today's topic is on the Treaty of the BIA

00:00:13--> 00:00:18

the BIA the Treaty of the BIA to place in the 16th of the Hippodrome.

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

And before that, by a year approximately in the fifth year of the hedgerow we had the famous battle of Azov, or the Battle of Honda, which is commonly translated as the Battle of the trench or the Battle of the Confederates were the Qureshi along with some other major tribes of Arabia. They came and they gathered and they laid siege to the city of Medina, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Muslims were based. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as we know in that battle, he dug a trench to stop those Confederate armies from entering into Medina. And there was a stalemate of sorts for some time, until a large xojo repel the evil and repel the advances, and they

00:00:59--> 00:01:41

returned. After this after the Battle of the hazard, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made a resolution. The Never again will the forces of Quraysh be allowed to attack the Muslims within the city of Medina. Because this was not the first time the Battle of or hurt was also attack on the city of Medina. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam resolved that this will not happen again. If there was to be a battle, the Muslims would go out and they would face the enemy, but the city of Medina with its women or children, and it's elderly, and so on and so forth, they will not be put to risk again. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam decided this, I give you this background to

00:01:41--> 00:02:13

understand somewhat some of the context that we're talking about, before we go into the treat of her the idea. We're talking about the Muslims being in a state of war on a state of high alert. They were in engaged within battle with these people of Quraysh. They feared for their lives, they were Muslims being persecuted. And because of the nature of this conflict, the whole of the Arabian Peninsula, was also going through some of that to some extent. So the Muslims were in the state of war. Only a year or less than a year later, after the Battle of

00:02:14--> 00:02:37

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw a dream. And in the dream, he saw that he would go and he would be making armor along with the Muslims. And unlike my dreams and your dreams, which may be true or may not be true, the dreams of the prophets of Allah are true and they are a form of Revelation. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as Allah mentions in the Quran, la casa de la hora Sula, who wrote a

00:02:38--> 00:03:16

letter to Mr. Del Haram. Insha Allah Who am in in Mahalia Tina Russa como Maka syrena la Taha phone in de that which Allah showed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his dream it is true that you will enter into the masjid al haram meaning in Makkah, the Kaaba, in a state of security and safety. Some of you will shave their heads and others of you will cut their hair, meaning that you will complete the rights of Rama, the rights of the lesser pilgrimage, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after this dream, he took that resolution that he along with the Muslims, they would go to Mecca in the state of Islam.

00:03:17--> 00:03:58

So the Muslims, and remember, they're on a state of war, they're going through this difficult period of time. They've just been attacked some months before the Confederate armies, including Polish at their head came to attack and decimate the Muslims. But now the Muslims will dress in a harem. And you all know what a harem is like and how difficult it is to wear those two pieces of cloth, they will be dressed in that state, therefore not carrying body armor, not carrying weapons, not ready for war, but rather to go out and to make pilgrimage. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam made this decision approximately 1400 companions 1400 companions, which was the vast majority of the

00:03:58--> 00:04:40

Muslim Ummah of that time, in the city of Medina, they decided to go along with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to the heart of the halifa he assumed the hum of Rama, just as many of us do. Now when we go to Medina, then we want to go to Mecca to perform hajj, even to that same place that same me part of the halifa made the intention of Islam assume the dress code of ROM and then he left out and he went on towards the city of Mecca. As you approach towards the city of Mecca, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it shows you by the way, one of the greatest lessons of this treaty of her The idea is how the Prophet sallallahu

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

alayhi wa sallam his companions, the Muslims, and then there's a lesson for us how they gave total allegiance to the prophets on a low earning or sell them and they would willingly and completely submit to the commands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which is an integral part of Eman. Allah tells us in the Koran format workflow

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

Because now you know, your hachimura FEMA sharabi known tamala G doofy. unforeseen pero Jemima, pata when you sell the motors NEMA? No, by Allah they do not believe until they make you meaning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the judge in their disputes. And then whatever you decide they take it, they don't have any problems submitting to it. It is a part of me, man. I don't have to listen to your opinions. You don't have to listen to mine. But two entities are two things that we have to give complete submission to, is to a large religion and to His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The Companions didn't see your messenger mala is a battlefield were in a state of war. How

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

can we go in the state of Iran? They didn't say a messenger of Allah. Not only are we in a state of war, and we're going in a harem, we're entering the lion's den so to speak, we're going into the city of Mecca, where our arch enemies are based. And we know that they are people who want to kill us and murder us, and they want to destroy our religion, how can we go, but rather, they all submitted in fact, if anything, they were happy to do so. And they were looking forward to the chance and the opportunity to make ombre. Don't we don't forget that many of those people were companions were formerly residents of Makkah. They were the Maha Jeannine, who had been exiled from

00:06:17--> 00:07:00

the city of Mecca from their homes and from their land, and they had not returned. Since that time, this would be an opportunity for them to go back. So the companions set out and they went towards Mecca. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was well aware of the situation, he was aware that the parish may not look favorably upon the Muslims coming into the city of Mecca, even though the Polish as a rule and as a general principle, because they were the custodians of the karma and the Haram. They wouldn't disallow or prevent or prohibit anyone from making pilgrimage. Anyone who came from another tribe or from outside of Makkah, even if there was enmity between orange and that

00:07:00--> 00:07:37

tribe, or between elements of operation, that tribe, they wouldn't stop them and prevent them from making ombre and Hutch, because they've come peacefully, they've come to make pilgrimage. They're not here to cause trouble. They'll do what they need to do, and they leave. So the orange always did this because it was the way that they were and it was part of being the custodians of the harem. And it was one of the reasons why the other Arab tribes looked up to them and gave them that position of honor. But now when it came to the situation of the Muslims, it was a different thing. It was a different case. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam understanding that there may be some

00:07:37--> 00:08:16

tension and difficulty, he chose to stop at a place called who they be on the outskirts of Makkah, approximately 4050 miles away. And that is where the treaty name is taken the Treaty of for the BIA. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stopped his companions. And he stopped there, because he had heard that the Irish were aware of the coming of the Muslims 1400 Muslims coming and they were prepared for war. They were anxious and they were nervous, and they were afraid and they were jittery. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam stopped, and he stopped there, in order to send an ambassador to them, to tell them that we haven't come to fight, we haven't come to cause trouble.

00:08:16--> 00:08:56

We've simply come to perform the pilgrimage, just as every other Arab tribe, and even the people of Medina on salt would do before Islam. They would come and they would make their pilgrimage by the Kaaba. That's all we've come to do. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam chosen or rhodiola Juan, and he told him to go and be their Ambassador towards McCann to town, the chieftains and the leaders of courage, the intention of the Muslims. Remember the Allahu Akbar was selected? Because before Islam, his role in the role of his clan, was that they were the emissaries of Quraysh. Every clan in orange had their duty. Some of them were known for warfare. Some of them are given positions of

00:08:56--> 00:09:38

leadership, the clan of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to feed and water the pilgrims. Everyone had their role because that's how the tribe functions. Remember the Allahu and his clan? their role in Quraysh was that they were ambassadors and emissaries. Amaro go and speak to those people. I'm one of the along one said O Messenger of Allah. If I go to Makkah, there is no one who will protect me, my clan, my people are weak. Even amongst orange, they were one of the smaller clans of orange, they are weak. And if someone chooses to do me harm or to harm me, I will have no one to stop stop them. Rather center Earth man, because he is from the same clan as Abu sufian. And

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

Abu Sufyan will never allow him to be harmed. Because the kurush even though they were mortal enemies to the Muslims, they still had their idea of tribalism, my clan in my tribe if you're from my clan, no one can touch you. And if you're not from my clan that I won't protect you. So send us man or messenger of Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was showing

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

Even in these most difficult of situations, he was open for advice. As we saw in the Battle of butter, and trench, every single situation that is difficult the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would listen to advice, because there is from the qualities of strong leadership. So he said, on the lower it was silymarin man, you go instead, as a man with your loved one, belonging to Ben Omega, the same time as Abu sufian. He went as an emissary and he went to see Abu sufian Abu sufian, as a model the Allahu Han had foreseen and predicted, he won't come to him, and he honored him. And he let him come and he let him sit. And he told him I was a fan, we haven't come to fight, we haven't

00:10:42--> 00:11:21

come to fight, we want to simply make our Umbra, just as every other clan and tribe of Arabia makes. I was Sofia and wasn't too keen on this proposal. He didn't like the idea that they should come. Because remember, in every single battle, and every single instance, more or less, that the Quraysh came to try to attack the Muslims, they will rebound and defeated by the way, by the will of Allah. They're seizing within sight. They have hatred and enmity towards these people towards the Muslims. These are their own family members. These are their own tribes, people, these are their own relatives and kin and kiff. They don't want them to come now into Makkah, as if they can just come

00:11:21--> 00:12:01

in and do their Umrah and return without there being any problem. Abu sufian wasn't keen, but he said to us, man, oh, man, you go with me camera. You're here you go and make ombre. I guarantee no one will harm you, no one will touch you. And then you go back and join the Muslims. As a man with your loved one said by Allah, I will never make an Umbra without the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It's not possible that I would make Amara and you don't let the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam make Ramadan. And again, you see that not only that sense of loyalty, but as mama the long run, as we know from his character was a man who was shy, and a man who was humble, and a man who

00:12:01--> 00:12:43

didn't speak much in publicly he was an introvert personality. But when it came to the time to speak, when it came to the time to take a stance, when it came the time to show courage. He was the most courageous to form amongst the most courageous of the companions of the loved one whom it's not possible that I will go and make Amara and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is prevented from doing so. So as a man with your loved one decided that he would return wants to live man was in Mecca, speaking and having these negotiations with the oration with Abu sufian a rumor reached the Muslims 4050 miles away in her the idea that the orange had killed her us man. The parish had killed

00:12:43--> 00:13:21

her us man, even though as we know, ambassadors and emissaries in every region, every country, every nation, every religion, whenever killed, was just to rule that you don't kill the messenger, right? That's where we get that same don't shoot the messenger. messengers are simply there to convey the message from the leaders from the kings, whoever they are, and they go back with a message. They weren't killed. But they had heard now the Muslims had heard that they had killed your loved one. It was a rumor that a rich them the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hearing this, he wanted to avenge the death of Horace Mann. They didn't come looking for trouble. They didn't want any harm.

00:13:21--> 00:14:03

But now they did something that even in their practice, and in their way and in their religion was wrong. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam took a pledge of allegiance from all of the companions, and it is called by a toad with one it is called the pledge of pleasure, meaning seeking a loss of pleasure and alarm. zildjian mentions this in the Quran, in the same surah, in which he speaks about the Treaty of power they be so little further, Nevado De La Nina Nakata Shara Indeed, Allah is pleased with those believers who gave you the Pledge of Allegiance under the tree. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sat under a tree, and he took the pledge of allegiance that the

00:14:03--> 00:14:44

Muslims would avenge the death of Horace Mann with your loved one. And all of those companions came, and they gave the pledge of allegiance to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. As it turned on, as we know, it was a rumor that was false, but the larsa which will praises the Muslims, for having that resolve, having them intention that they had and for making that pledge of allegiance to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it is called the br one. And those companions that attended that based on the pledge of allegiance, those 1400 they have a special station in our religion, when the scholars come and they look at the superiority of the companions, and they categorize them, we

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

have the whole of Abu Bakr, Omar Ali, and then you have those companions who are from the 10 that were promised paradise, and then from the early Muslims and the people of Bhutan. And after the people of Bhutan, you have those companions that were there at bay.

00:15:00--> 00:15:08

One who included the companions of Buddha who were living at that time, as well as others who came after them. They have a special place in this religion.

00:15:09--> 00:15:48

The point being, the transformation of your loved one wasn't killed and he wasn't assassinated, but he came back to once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in for the BIA. Abu Sufyan and the coalition leaders, they decided that they would send their own emissary and their own ambassador, a man by the name of Rama to go and speak to the Muslims and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they would set out for them a list of terms that they would have to accept if they want you to come and make ombre. So here, the blue hammer and another man, just two of them from Orange, they came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Muslims of 1400 in number. And yes, even though

00:15:48--> 00:16:28

they haven't come for war, they're not come with the older weapons and all the armor and so on. 1400 against two is still odds. So therefore, the Swahili grammar came with this other man and they came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he saw Swahili Brahma, he said to the companions, they have come to negotiate. If the Orisha wanted war, and they want you to just fight and kill the Muslims, they wouldn't have sent this man, this man is a negotiator. They've sent him because they want to reach terms. So the profits on a lower hourly will sell them again, that intelligence that he had in his Serato salon, he could see and recognize

00:16:28--> 00:17:10

the situation, even before the man comes and he opens his mouth and says the word he knew that they come to negotiate. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the companions By Allah, I will agree to every single term that they asked for, so long as it is not against the laws of Allah. So long as they don't ask me to do anything Haram. They don't ask me to break a law of Allah, I will agree to everything, whatever those terms may be. And this is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam signaling, his willingness and his intent to agree to their terms, even though we know and he knew at the time, that their terms wouldn't be favorable. These aren't going to be equal terms,

00:17:10--> 00:17:49

there wasn't going to be an element of justice a given take, this was going to be demean and humiliate the Muslims as much as you can. But so long as there is a greater goal. And this is the greatest lesson of the Treaty of the via the fast sightedness and the long term vision that Muslim needs. Often today, especially in our world, and our time, and with all of the things that go on around us. We're very reactionary, and we're very impulsive. And we're very emotive, and we look at a situation that may occur. And yes, it may be difficult to bear. And we react instantly without thinking about any of the consequences and ramifications. These attacks that you see in Manchester

00:17:49--> 00:18:28

and London, all of those places. There are people who don't think and they don't have the intelligence to think, unfortunately, our profits on a lot of wireless and we'll sell them shows us the when you are a leader, and even if you're not a leader, you're a member of the community. It is from your religious obligation. It is a duty it is an obligation upon you that you have to look at the long term consequences. Because otherwise Islam is attacked because of your actions. Otherwise, the Muslims suffer because of one individual. And that is a responsibility that no single one of us wants to bear. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was winning. So hey, there's no Mr. Kane, and

00:18:28--> 00:19:07

every single one of his conditions was not in the favor of the Muslims, but in the favor of the Quraysh or Muslims, you returned to Medina and you don't make armor this year. Never before did the Arabs do this to anyone that they will reject it and prevent it from making armor or hedge, but you will return and you don't make your armor. And then next year, if you wish, come back and make Amara. Maybe they thought and by next year, there wouldn't be any Muslims left. They would have killed the Muslims. They wouldn't be any treaty, whatever. Next year, you can come back and make your ramrod again, from the treaties or from the terms of the treaties is that any person any Muslim

00:19:07--> 00:19:51

that leaves Mecca, and he goes to Medina seeking refuge and asylum because he's being tortured in Makkah and oppressed must be returned. You cannot keep him if he asks for them back, you must give them but If on the other hand, someone goes from Medina, and they return to Mecca, leaving Islam not wanting Islam, the police don't have to return them every single point that the Quraysh wanted the could demean or humiliate the Muslims. They put within that treaty. The Not only that, but when it came time to signing and writing it out the process of cinemas agreeing says yes yes yes to everything. Now it's time to write down. So that is a written contract. The Prophet sallallahu

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

alayhi wa sallam said to Allah rhodiola Why no Ali, right for me be the scribe and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dictating Bismillah R Rahman r

00:20:00--> 00:20:44

In the name of Allah, most Gracious, Most Merciful, so Hadith grammar said, No, we don't accept these names of Allah Rahmani Raheem are not names known to us in our religion in our culture, rather the right bismi column, in your name, Oh Allah. We don't know him to this extent into this detail. They were willing to have any excuse any reason to break up this treaty to say to the Arabs that we tried, we attempted we wanted peace, but they refused. So we had to fight and kill them. They were looking for the smallest excuse. As often the enemies of Islam do. They waiting for an opportunity? They're waiting for an excuse that one person does something crazy or something rash or something

00:20:44--> 00:21:24

silly, and they can attack everyone. And likewise, the Quran wanted to do the same thing. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is aware that this is the trap and this is their plan. Everything that they say he will do, okay? bismi column, in your name of Allah. It's okay. This is the contract between Mohammed the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and so Haley Brahma, the representative of Quraysh. He said, No. If we accept you that you are the Messenger of Allah, we wouldn't be fighting. We wouldn't have there wouldn't be a problem, but rather right. This is a contract between Mohammed the son of Abdullah and so he did no harm when the Prophet sallallahu

00:21:24--> 00:22:06

alayhi wa sallam said to wipe it out on your on your loved one refused. The prophet SAW Selim said, Show me where it is. And he rubbed it out himself, and he made him rewrite it everything that they wanted, they were given. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam agreed this treaty is signed, and the coresh signed. As soon as they had signed, one of the first things that happen was a man came wanting from Makkah, a man in chains shackled a Muslim, who had been tortured and oppressed, who had been imprisoned, but he had heard the Muslims were very near only a few miles away, and he had managed to escape and he had one for his life, to come and ask for the help of 1400 Muslims

00:22:06--> 00:22:50

against two men. But one of those two men happened to be his father, Abu jandal, his name is this Muslim man was the son of Swahili blommer, the chief negotiator of Polish, he came in he was shackled, and he said to the Muslims, help me save me, give me refuge take me back to Medina. So he recognizes his son, this is his son, Abu jandal. And he said, Oh, Mohammed, addressing our prophets on the low audio Selim. Oh, Mohammed, this is the first one that we employ, implement this treaty upon my son. We agreed that anyone that runs away from Makkah seeking refuge from the Muslims, you must return them. This is the first person that we will ask for back. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:22:50--> 00:23:33

wa sallam can see in 1400, Muslims are seeing a Muslim, shackled, chained in pain, obviously, having gone through difficulty and hardship. And he said, Oh, so he'll leave him for me. Make one exception. Let him come with me. And for everyone else, we will return them. So he'll said no, he's my son, and I want him back. He tried again, also, hey, let him come make an exception. Let him come with me. I will look after him and leave him for me. He said no. If you don't agree, we will rip up this treaty right now. And everyone goes back to where they are. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam again, that greater vision. He said to Abu jandal Have patience or Abu jandal trust in Allah.

00:23:33--> 00:24:13

And then he told the Muslims to give him back. So he takes his son to jungle, and he sees 1400 Muslims, but he's undeterred because they're looking for an excuse. He's not afraid of 1400 Muslims being rash, he wants them to be rash. He wants them to attack he wants to provoke them. So what does he do? He starts to beat his son in front of all of the Muslims. And his son is asking for how asked him for the Muslims assistance, and none of the Muslims can do anything. Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has forbidden them from doing so. Not a single one of them will move, which again shows you the discipline, the submission to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that

00:24:13--> 00:24:53

acceptance of the commander of a large region, but there are human it is difficult to bear and to see. Yet again, the Muslim isn't reactionary. The Muslim is a person of intelligence who looks at the greater picture and the greater game. So Abu jandal and Sohail will return. They took them back and he went back to Makkah. Some of the companions said on that day by Allah when we saw this, what's happening to Abu jandal, the situation that's going on, and we have 1400 against two and we call out a single Muslim who's being oppressed. Some of us felt that our Eman was becoming weak. We felt that our man was going through a difficult time and these are who companions of the Prophet

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Ramadi Allahu Akbar was one of those companions, who came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:25:00--> 00:25:43

them and he said, O Messenger of Allah. Are you not the Prophet of Allah? Are we not upon the religion of truth has a lot of promise to give us help? And the prophets of Salaam said yes, of course. So then why our messenger of Allah? Are we willing to suffer humiliation like this? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam replying and this is the lesson that every single one of us needs to memorize, ingrained within us and to remember every single time we think of doing something that our religion hasn't allowed, he said, Oh, Mr. Allah is my Lord, He will never forsake me. It's only taught me man Eman. tawakkol in Allah certainty in the promise of Allah, Allah is my Lord. He

00:25:43--> 00:26:25

will never forsake me. Or Marathi. Allah one goes to Abu Bakr rhodiola, one, our boubakeur we know Muslims, is our religion, not the truth is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not the Prophet of Allah, of course, his armor. So why then are we back? Or are we willing to suffer the same humiliation? Abubakar on your loved one without hearing the previous conversation? Without knowing what took place between Ramadan the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he gave the exact same response, or Amato. Allah is his Lord, He will never forsake exactly the same words, because they both had the vision, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Abu Bakar the Allah one. So our

00:26:25--> 00:27:04

motto the Allah one understood that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has a greater plan is not just about the hombre is not just about the treaty is not just about today and tomorrow, it is about a greater vision. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the companions, take off your harem, some of them have bought animals with them, that they were going to sacrifice the harem or the sacrifice for the harm that they would then give to the poor of the harm. He said, sacrifice them take off your alarm, shave off your heads and we go back to to mudita the companions didn't do so. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because they were upset and visibly upset. The Prophet

00:27:04--> 00:27:41

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw this and he became upset. So he went into his tent, and he saw his wife almost Santa Maria long run her. She said, O Messenger of Allah, what upsets you? He said, I gave a command to the companions, and none of them agreed to do it. None of them did it. She said O Messenger of Allah, they haven't done so because they still hold hope that perhaps they will go to Mecca, maybe something else will happen. Maybe revelation comes, maybe something will change and they will go and make ombre. But if you are messenger of Allah go out and you shave of your head, you take off your forearm, you show them that yes, we are going back to Medina, there is nothing

00:27:41--> 00:28:23

more than every one of them will do the same. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took their advice from him selama and how many times in the car do we see that the prophet SAW Selim would take advice from his wives, he took that advice, and he shaved off his head came out of Islam. And when the companions saw this, they all did the same. And they return back to Medina galarza, which will reveal the opening passage of Surah Al Fatiha and he said enough aterna laka Fatima, Bina, indeed we mean Allah, we have given you a manifest and clear victory. This is a verse that addresses the Muslims after the treaty, or are they Mia? It is one of the common misunderstandings and

00:28:23--> 00:29:06

misconceptions that people think that this verse of victory refers to the conquest of Mecca. No, it doesn't refer to the conquest of Makkah. It refers to the Treaty of Abia, which any way that you slice it, or cut it or look at it is difficult for the Muslims and it is against the rights and the interests of the Muslims. But Allah called it a manifest victory. Why? Because yes, it would be the first step to what would then happen in two years time, which is the conquest of Makkah. From the beginning of Islam, to the Treaty of are they be 19 years approximately of Islam. Only 1400 people had become Muslim. That was the extent of the Muslim Ummah, but from the years 600 to the 80s, Roman

00:29:06--> 00:29:46

the conquest of Mecca would take place in two years, they would multiply nearly by 10 10,000 people will be Muslim. Why? Because now the Muslims don't have to worry about fighting and dying and killing and war and battle. They don't have to worry about oppression, they don't have to worry about torture, the Muslims can go and do what Muslims should always be doing. And that is calling people to Allah, giving Dawa showing people the character of Islam, calling them to a large religion and to the religion of Allah. They could go in safety and they wouldn't have to worry. They could go to the other Arab tribes forget Quraysh the other Arab tribes without fearing that eration would

00:29:46--> 00:30:00

come with an army and attack them on the way they could go out and he was peaceful in the Arabian Peninsula. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began to write letters not only to the Arab tribes, but to the other leaders of the world to the majority

00:30:00--> 00:30:40

You ever be senior to the Roman Emperor to the Persian Emperor to all of these people? Why? Because now they're not afraid for their lives. And that is why when a large that will speaks to orange and he speaks about one of the greatest blessings that Allah gave to orange. He said that one of them is security. Allah the Obama who means you're a man or woman who is alone gave you food when you were hungry, hungry, and he gave you peace and security after fear. Because you cannot truly worship Allah with a tranquility and the love and everything that you need in order to practice your religion for yourself and your family to come in the masjid and practice your religion open and do

00:30:40--> 00:31:17

what you need to do. Unless you have security and peace. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew that Muslims in Medina don't have to worry anymore about armies coming to invade them, people laying siege to them, people trying to kill and assassinate them. And instead they could give dour and that is the greatest lesson, because that would then be the first step to the conquest of Makkah, which would then lead to all of the Arabian Peninsula, accepting Islam. It is that vision. It is that understanding it is that insight that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had and demonstrated in this treaty of the media, and is that which allows the which will pleases in the

00:31:17--> 00:31:39

Quran, and he calls it a great victory. These are the lessons that we need to take not only from the treat of the BIA, but when we study and analyzed fear of our profits and allow to sell them. We can't just simply read them as stories, but we need to stop and ponder and reflect over the lessons within them so large that it gives us the ability to do so. Well.
