smilla salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. He was on V woman well, so today we have a lot of our brothers and sisters are still fasting while they're breaking their fast.
A bit of a late start today.
For those of you who are with us,
today insha Allah we continue with the story, the Sierra of the prophets of Salaam and inshallah, we're going to talk about what happened after the Battle of weather and into the Battle of offered.
So lastly, we left off where the promised land, sell them and the Muslims had defeated the mushrikeen. In the Battle of better
and there are a few miracles that happened, Allah sent 1000s of angels, which they could not see.
And it was only to give them hope, and courage.
Otherwise, they didn't really need the angels.
that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came out and grabbed some dust. And he threw it into the face of the enemy when he saw the angels coming down. And he said the following was a very famous miracle that happened. He said, share had individually, OSHA had individual made the faces be blinded. And the dust rose and went into every one of the enemies eyes and face. And that was another thing that happened. And the last miracle, of course, is that the Muslims was such a small amount 314 315, some say maximum 319 against nearly 1,000th of the machine. And yet, the victory was still given to the Muslims, my brothers and sisters in Islam, then the Muslims took prisoners. And the amount of
prisoners they took from the mushrikeen was 17 in number seven, zero.
Now the Muslims have never been the Arabs, in fact, have never had prisoners like this before.
They didn't know what to do with the prisoners and in Islam, the Sharia had not yet
drawn out the law. Allah had not yet told the province of other SLM what he's meant to do with prisoners of war.
In fact, that battle of button wasn't even expected. The Muslims didn't know they're gonna go into battle. Remember review last week's talk, they didn't know they were going to battle.
Now they have these prisoners with them. And these prisoners are relatives and family of a lot of the Muslims were converted to Islam from the mahadji. From the migrants. Some of them were fathers, like so he did no harm.
But his son was still he was tied up and managed to get away and go into the Battle of budget he was facing as well.
And many others, Zaina not the alarm systems Dora herself.
She was married.
To us, it was still a Michigan he was fighting against the Muslims. He was also captured as a prisoner, the son in law of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
There were others, some of them got killed or relatives family. But unfortunately, Islam divides between the truth and false. And it wasn't the Muslims who began this they didn't want to start this war for 10 years of persecution and now the mushrikeen were the ones who attack them. They had no option
these prisoners my brothers and sisters, why did I say that? There was no laws about what to do with the prisoners yet and why did I say that they are family and relatives because what's about to come can be misunderstood. And for those who are enemies of Islam can create what we call a Shabaab a doubt in the following thing what happened with the prisoners which I would like to inshallah clarify today, for those of you to learn insha Allah Allah from the seal.
Firstly, they grabbed the prisoners, and they tied their chains or their ropes around them very tightly on their wrists and neelix.
The mushrikeen these people that they have tried, they weren't just anyone. They were the worst of the worst. Who persecuted the Muslims in the last 14 years or 15 years. You didn't get just the weather from kurush you had the worst of the worst. The leaders and the ones who have conspired and hurt the prophet SAW Selim himself and the Muslims and killed among them the most. I wish I had all my October, October I'd be more hmm
To him who strangled approximal it was sent them before Remember, we talked about it, the one who threw those intestines of the camel. On top of the processor, I sent him his head, remember him, and the promises are made against him and those who were with him, among many who persecuted and killed many of the Muslims. These were the ones who have been fighting. So they basically were probably the worst of the earth right there. And then at that point, at that time, at that particular time, they were the worst of the earth. I'm not saying that there were people in Persia, who was the name of people of Rome. But at that moment, the biggest threat to the Muslims and the hardest against them,
and the worst against them, were these people 15 years of persecution.
I'm saying this for a reason.
So the prophets of Allah to send them What did he tell them to do?
You see, he took the verses of the kurama. Last month, Allah said, Look, when the Muslims have to fight them, fight them, and Mendel recited some verses last week. And then Allah says in these verses towards the end, they said, and then afterwards, if you capture them, Allah says, either you can treat them with mercy or can treat them with harshness, whatever you see fit.
And if the disbelievers who fought, Allah says in the Quran, if he said, if you want and you want to lay your arms no longer fight, then there'll be a peace treaty between you indirectly velocity you can lay your arms No, no fight. Or if you want to repent, from what you've done wrong to the Muslims and gone against the law and is poorer than Allah says, Allah is a photo Rahim Allah will forgive you. He's merciful. He's talking about the enemies who came to fight the Muslims. So if you want, you can lay down your arms and stop fighting. And Allah will accept that. Or you can repent to become Muslims and a law forgive your sins. What are the verses calling to Allah, Allah doesn't want
war, he wants them to stop the war, and to have some humanity between them, and to submit and not torture those that want to embrace Islam to give freedom for the people. And let them hear the message of a lot and let the Messenger of God speak wasn't harming anyone as he was doing for the past 15 years lately, but unfortunately, these people just did not desist me
just too evil.
So that when they captured them, the professor I sent them said, walk beside them, loosen, you know the chains
afterwards, loosen the chains. However, some of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam some of the answers, some of them are hygiene, they thought otherwise, there were some little groups of men and soda so Otherwise, they thought to treat them harshly. Among them, was Musab abnormal,
had a half brother,
who one of the unsought when even from them or Has anyone even from Makkah, he had him tied
and Musab no mercy is his brother and his brother says, the blood between us brother and he looks at the authority the Muslim he says to tighten the chains on him, tighten them and he says this what happens we're both from the same mother. And Muslim no medicine. No. We're lucky that person that I'm sorry was tying it is closer to me my brother than you are. He is the brother indeed. And the brothers and sisters, Indian brothers sisters in this world and in the hereafter. As for those who are brothers or sisters in blood, you're just in blood. But in the Hereafter, Allah says Allah subhanaw taala divides between them Allah says the only a federal government FA will be on that day
of judgment person will run away from their brother and from their father and their mother and all of that everyone will have their own case to deal with.
As for the believers, they stay together and they antigen together.
My brothers and sisters in Islam, this was the case on October the Allahu Allah had members of his family in that battle, and he was ready to strike the next before anyone else. Even among the prisoners
saw the wild was also there and
he said he wasn't happy from saw Sam said you're not happy with the taking the prisoners and keeping them safe. He said, I believe there should be killed the Rasul Allah they're just too much of a threat. These guys they're not like any prisons, they're going to come back they're gonna fight us they're gonna destroy us. And we're still so little in number
you know very little in number these people out there to kill us I'm gonna go back they're going to help them to come back and kill us.
I wish we can give them but you're also not just do what you want, what you see fit. Now at this point, the purpose of our salon was not treating the prisoners in accordance with a ye like it wasn't a command from Allah telling him to do that. It was just himself as the messenger in the way Allah created him Rama, mercy to all of mankind. Whenever the law said them actively acted, first of all in mercy. It had to take so much for him to go to the extremes of killing someone, if need be, only in the case, where he had
So the province of our settler wanted mercy with these people.
They brought them back to Medina.
And in Medina, the prisoners are they're tied up, what are they going to do with them? They don't know what to do with you.
So when there is no, there is no ruling in the court and to the province of SLM and obviously to us as well as Muslims today, if we don't have a hookup from Allah and His messenger from the Sunnah. Then we have what we call a Shura. In order to show that his
Ashura is a council, you bring a council of people who represent groups of people. So you bring the elite or the leaders of the or representative of each subgroup of our community, someone who represents a group
and they come in together to become a Shura Council.
And whatever they decide, the messenger sallallahu Sallam will go with it, the majority.
Now, before saying this is like a democratic system, I would like to caution you to say that democratic system in Islam is Kufa. Its disbelief. Why? Because democracy and seeking the opinion of the majority,
in accordance with Islam have two different rules. They're not the same. The democratic system of the secular system today, which is has nothing to do with religion,
that gives that gives the answer to you. Then, yeah, they go with the system of what the majority vote, but they don't take into account religion at all what Allah Allah says at all. So whatever the majority rule, even if it's completely wrong, even it's completely,
you know, out of this world of noxious, it's whatever, they will just go with it.
majority rules that alcohol should be legal, they'll say, go with it. A Muslim can do that.
The majority rule that you can marry your animal now, and that's something that some people are advocating for some people overseas, we've heard a read news on the internet that they are trying to legalize, insist, if you have a campaign or a group that comes and says we want to legalize marijuana, for example.
They gather democratic votes. A Muslim cannot take part in voting
for something that almost nothing has already committed.
Now, if you have a say, here in this country, which we do, and we are able to overpower that law so that Muslims can, if it's going to harm the Muslims, and we are able, there's no other way to stop it, except through voting. And it will benefit the Muslims in keeping away from them then we say this is necessities dictate exceptions of Baroda to be a form of war, when you have to, for the Muslim for the benefit of the Muslims when they're going to be harmed, then you can do certain things that stop the greater harm. And it's called necessities dictating Central's a common rule. However, in general, the standard rule brothers and sisters democracy of today is not a democracy
that the pros are self taught. Don't mix the two. Allah did say no, Cora amerihome Shura version of grammar was was talking about war and battle and then talks about the pros that are similar. You can treat them in ease or in harshness. And then he says
in other words that make the American Council with your with the people around you. So the pros are Sam didn't get a heck of a lot from a lot more data. So we gathered the sahabas, the elite of them and each one represented a little group.
So he said to them, a Chevrolet tell me what you think, what should we do with the prison's
power of the alohar? Who gets up in space? It's got the loudest voice and he's the first always to talk Michelle says era sobre la
Kelvin. The prophet SAW Selim turned away from him he wants to hear other
other people talk. So I'm gonna hop off totally alano got up again autonomia Rasul Allah kill them
from saw seldom heard me turned away from him he wants other people's advice. And I'm gonna hop upset a third time I don't know why is it always these three? It always pops up three times three times it's not really a sooner that three is from the sooner A lot of people say three from the sooner there are certain actions in the dean which leaves us MD three times. But there were certain things you did once certain things didn't get more but a common rule of having three as soon that is not really as soon as I say three is a song
All right, the Christian said God is Trinity three do we say three is sooner? Allah is what we'll do one we say Allah is only one writer but yeah in our practices in our football matters and practices three is not necessarily as soon unless the process and did it in threes. But anyway, three keeps popping up. I think. It's just the
psychological thing, everybody deserves a second chance a third time it doesn't work.
out is the only one talking gets up a third time. And then fourth Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allah who speaks. And he says you're a solo law. They are family, they are relatives, you know, they come from the same blood, I say to us mercy with them.
Either let them go or
get a ransom for them. Every relative can come and pay a ransom and will free them.
No one else spoke.
the majority was going with Abu Bakar represented a majority.
And said the others who nodded with a worker represented a majority, but only a minority said kill them. The prophet SAW Selim was happy with that. And the Sahaba said, we saw the process and his face shine. He got happy, it's like a burden was released, was the burden release because he also preferred mercy, or was the burden release because they came to a conclusion the majority had voted. Whatever it is, it was the mercy and compassion of the process. And it was the cover of a law that is gonna go there anyway, but listen to what happened. So the proposal that I sent them, took them in and made an announcement that you can ransom these people if you want. And the ransoming was
between 4000 to 1000. Durham's a large amount of money, I don't know what to equal today, but I know that it's a large, very significant amount of money for people to ransom their relatives to freedom.
And what the book also said, was there a school of law, we can take that money, we can buy utility with it, we can help themselves, we can make ourselves stronger for the next time, and there is going to be a next time we know that that's the way he saw the homeless or otherwise, who saw that these men, they, we know how they I said, We've been living with them, I know them, he knows them in Makkah. He was among them, he knows their minds. These are the most stubborn of stubborn ones, save one or two or a few of them. And they're going to come back if we let them go, we were announcing that they're going to come back with their army and look at us, they're going to destroy us all.
It's not wise jasola to let them free. And Romano was justified in doing that. It's not a matter of mercy or whatever. Muslims are forgiving them for very, but there comes a time when your forebears has to have wisdom as well. Sometimes you can't just forgive or let go, there comes a time where you have to make a decisive measure. Because it's sometimes it's so clear that the harm is going to be greater if you let them go. In this case,
they saw that the humbleness if you if we keep them, let's exercise mercy and hope that we can give them a chance to make is that it was the quarter of a mother who said that was the one who said that, because two things were going to happen. A few of them of the prisoners were later on going to embrace Islam, but very much later. And they were going to be a great one of the greatest supporters obviously, later on in the future. But in the immediate future, that we're going to be a terrible harm on the Muslims in the next battle that was going to combat
the biggest car catastrophe, but only temporarily.
When the one who left and the other one later he came back. And he heard of a worker nominal and approximately I send them crying.
So the person says, Man, you're capable man, what's making you cry? Tell me. And if it's worth crying or cry with you,
has no emotions in these things, right? He goes, if it's worth crying, I'll cry. But if it's not worth it, I'll act like I'm crying with you out of just out of love for you.
He was a man that really, truly black and white. He was
he had no place for emotion. It's either this way there's and it was so honest, that some people would say that his honesty was so honest, that it was offensive. his honesty became offensive. That's how honesty was. So he goes to them. What are you crying if I find that it's deserves crying or cry with you. If it doesn't deserve crying, I'll act like I'm crying. I'll just act
like sometimes, if we were if he was here, we were to laugh about that. He probably looked at us and smack us because he meant it. But it was funny. That was our sense of smell to to these words. And approximately seven of workers said to him, Allah sent down a verse favor in your opinion. Yeah, Omar.
He said maca and Elena Bian.
It was never It was never for any profit before you
I would say in English to take prisoners of war before, before he is established firmly in the land with strength and numbers have
no profit before you. In other words, the artist will Allah was ever allowed to take prisoners of war until they have established themselves strongly in the land. In other words as almost it indirectly, they're gonna go back, you're not strong enough, they're gonna come back and kill you. The Muslims, you're not strong enough yet to take prisoners. In other words, you should have killed them. That's the bit of wisdom.
And Allah says a few other things there about the believers that they should have changed, because most of us have what the majority said. But then Allah says no hula, can you imagine?
Kalamata and finicky tabbing server port. If it wasn't that in the key tab, the key tab here means the preserve tab will allow,
you know, the preserve tab will allow read everything that will be ok key tab, the default in the book of coder for wasn't that we had written in the quarter before that I am going to let you
take ransom for the prisoners if you wish, or you can kill them, that I was gonna give you that law anyway, I was gonna allow you to do what you did anyway.
You would have been punished.
The Muslims, including with the prasada, they would have been punished. It doesn't mean that they did the wrong thing. It means that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam can make a wrong decision. If there is no clear ruling from a law, because he's a human, it's not a bad thing. It's a mistake based on an educational guess. And based on every precondition, he could meet within his human ability. And this gives us a breather my brothers and sisters, it tells us that a man does not expect you to always make the perfect and right decision you will make mistakes. And there is a difference between forging a mistake deliberately doing a mistake and doing an innocent mistake.
And Russel Wallace has told us, as he told us compels us in a wonder bit of hate when someone makes mistake. Assume positively given it give them the benefit of the doubt.
So someone may have,
but he wasn't a holiday. And there are two different meanings. Sometimes the law says move and
or holiday holiday is like
he knew his mistake and still did it anyway. Knowing mostly
is somebody who is who innocently makes a mistake.
So my brothers sisters in Islam, you do your best. And if there are mistakes, you learn from them, send them know whether we're crying about that. But then Allah said, and it was this versus abrogated. So Allah said, Now I allow you though, I allow you to either Ensign them, or you can be harsh to them, whatever you wish.
Mercy, the harshness to different opinions.
So anyway, the process and then went along with the color of Allah and the permission to allow to ransom them. And he kept it as that he told them to feed. So he got the prisoners like two or three and gave them to each one of the soldiers that fought with them, to look after them. So they looked after them. And you said you got to feed them from what you feed your own family. They used to get the bread for their family, and I would share it perfectly with the prisoners and these the enemies with the prisons. And so the prisoners saw the mercy of the Muslims and the generosity and the dean and I knew that they're not fighting for something personal. They are fighting if they fight from a
higher being. And a higher being is a merciful God. He is generous He is our God is the real one. But unfortunately, these mushrikeen didn't see it that way. Their pride and arrogance, the nationalism, the tribalism, their bloodline was more important and really what did that do it cause them to shed blood and to even fight the professor send them and their own families and relatives? It caused them oppression.
My brothers and sisters in Islam the higher power which is a last panel the island or does justice in the La Jolla mobile ad litem recite this in football all the time. A lot of commands used to be just idly when he has an accent means to do good more than people's rights to give more than what someone deserves. Alexa means give someone more than their rights in general in general. So this is very important between the husband and wife and the family with relatives with neighbors
Right people who are close to you, you don't just give them their rights you do more than their rights and that's the meaning of this and in the likeable masini meaning Allah loves those who do extra to what their duties.
Okay? Not all the time, but as a standard characteristic of a Muslim, not everybody deserves exam. Okay? But definitely the rights even if you hate someone, you have to give them their rights. Well as reminder, Commissioner, Coleman, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah says, Do not let your hatred for people cause you to become unjust, do be fair, and another visual law says whatever. Even if it's against yourself, the law of a law applies to you like everyone else.
So then the ransoms started to come in. And they started to let go. One of them as I said, was saying about the law and daughter who was married to her husband who was still a mushrik. At this time, he was fighting alongside the enemy unfortunately. So she brought to the province of Allied SLM with the companions and necklace, that's all she had a necklace. And the story is quite emotional. She brought the necklace the process of ourselves looking through the ransoms and he sees this necklace.
And he begins to weep begins to cry so.
So then they said, What's this? And he said, this is one of the jewelleries of Khadija De La Hoya and his first wife. What happened was that when he married her she had this necklace and when zenobia lohana got married, she gifted her this necklace to Xena for her marital bridal gift. And so Pinilla was coming in to ransom
Abdullah house, so he cried and remembered, and he said sahabas it's up to you. You always gave him either you can take it there and add it to the Mad Batman and Muslim in the house of wealth of the Muslims. Or you can return back the necklace and free herbalists and the Muslims all out of love for the process. lm said unanimously jasola law returned back the necklace and we free up loss but the prophet SAW Selim made a condition on him. He said the condition is that you have to allow my daughter to migrate to Medina and not allowed to keep it in Makkah. If you don't want to embrace Islam, I'm not gonna force it upon him and that's what he did he stayed in Mecca and allows them to
migrate to Medina right they stayed married but because they had married before Is that so? I said I'm still agree to their marriage would they have to be a part
of Alas, dose, embrace Islam, and they get back together. But that's another story. It's a very emotional story was able to be alone.
Anyway, the other one who was ransomed was so hated neuron. Now this guy he became he was one of the most eloquent of the machine. And what happened to him was
I sent him so much, but when he when he was ransom, the processor I sent him was about to release him and Ilana looks at the process and says Yara Salalah before you're releasing, please, let me grab his two front teeth and rip them out. So that he can never talk ever again. His eloquence will not be used against you.
But the promise allows him sit in secret to honor the law and
keep that alive. I feel one thing I fear the most pantalla will reprimand me for mutilating the face of what he created, I'm not allowed to mutilated bodies and people and I also have a one liner, I'ma leave him for a lot is going to is going to give you happiness to your face with his two teeth One day, he will be one of those who will eloquently speak for Islam, just be patient. So I'm going to go on who sets him free and he says to him what life it was up to me I would have taken your teeth out. But Russell Salim said this, so go Get out of my face.
And he left. And that's what happened to the majority of the prisoners until all of them were ransom. And some of them were just freed by the practice of law sell. them also allow those who cannot be ransom. They said if you can teach 10 children from the Muslims how to read and write 10 you're also free. And this emphasizes how much knowledge and education is much more important than anything other than prisoners of war or battle or anything. Education is power. It is can be used as a weapon against injustice and rightfulness of course, or it can be used in violence rather than evil. Violence. I mean, the evil violence. Everybody has to fight some time but injustice good. My
brothers and sisters in Islam, the Meccans they were very sad, very angry.
So what happened? There was a hint, who was very angry wanted revenge. I don't know why she want revenge from Hamza with a low animal because she kept blaming him for the treachery and the death of her father, her uncle and her brother
weeping, Sophia is the husband of hint. So I think, you know, the first battle of battle he didn't fight. And the next battle of offer of a Sofia becomes the leader. And he's the flagbearer. So then he I think, is affected by his wife, Indian Hindus, a very outspoken woman, you know, when she spoke about Sophia and kind of struggled in in fulfilling what he says and usually had to meet her halfway because she was a strong woman, Michelle, and what she was upset and yelling, wailing and saying, we have to get our revenge until I was up and told her to be quiet and stop crying, no more crying, we won't show our weakness. Let them know that we're crying a lot. Here we are going to take your
revenge. Sophia took it upon himself to take his revenge. Among the people was software ignore me I remember or may have known fella who tortured me that was his former master, so far is his son. And now these children are taking over their children, and now taking over they become the leaders. And he wants to revenge for his father's blood. So a good one of his best friends, his name is all made out of nowhere. He comes up and he's got lots of children. He says, I want to take revenge from
and I thought of an idea, but I can't implement it. Because I have children and family and I have debts. software system, what do you want to do? This is a thought of tomorrow dipping my dagger into poison, poison that even if a drop of blood enters the blood, the person will die within minutes. And to go and assassinate Mohamed
so far, I said,
I will look after your debts and I will take care of your children. If you go and fulfill that this is real. This is his guy and he says don't tell a single person about our deal. Otherwise I won't be able to assess this remained an absolute secret and the between software and almost nobody else knew about.
So he put his dagger in and left when he reached by Deena who saw him on
he says to him
he looks at him doesn't like the way he looks I might have a thing about looking at faces so it goes to the proximal SLM system that's awesome. I know what happened and I don't like the way he looks. I don't think he's come with good intentions. And he's got a dagger from so Arsenal said to him Let him come in and let him keep his dagger.
So he comes in
and says to him what has brought you here sort of come to ransom my relatives we got you got my brother here my half brother hoping that you can free him said okay, and why we got the dagger with him. It says curse these daggers and these swords you know acted like he hates the sword because whatever they brought us they made us lose better they're not gonna benefit us nothing stuff, the sword stuff. The dagger suppressor I sent him kept asking him No, seriously why we got to that.
And he kept on making up excuses. and ran out of patience and said to him, you got this dagger to assassinate you poison overnight and you agreed with your best friend's software, that you have debts and he's gonna pay him off for you and he'll look after your children to come and kill me.
Or may immediately kiss the process in his hand and said a shadow Anika rasulillah by the witness You are the Messenger of Allah will law he nobody knows the secret except to him and I've traveled months how could you possibly know before anyone else will know who you are the Messenger of God as they sit and now I'm convinced this convinced him and he converted to Islam returned back to Makkah, while so far as looking after his death and everything, and only to find out that his best friend has converted to Islam and he said you will never talk to me ever again. He kept on preaching Islam in Makkah until he was tortured and everything and then he had to leave and migrate to Medina,
Allahu Akbar, my brothers and sisters, then they came another incident before the Battle of water. Many things happen. A lot of people don't know that. A lot of things happened between that time. You know, Sharia is being explained the proper settings looking after the people is teaching them solid is teaching them that God is teaching all these things. Like when people hear about the battles, they think it's just battles, battles, battles. Within these battles while battle happening, the process of law said I've never stopped teaching people, even the tiniest of things, how to make little out of it. What breaks the window and the barriers are happening.
That's because it is a law who is teaching us this deal. It is a law which shows this deal is a lot of taking care of everything. If you teach someone and Allah guide someone on your hands, it's better than what the sun has risen upon.
looking after your parents one message I want to go to shared with you it wasn't a compulsory when you said do you have a parents who said yes, go and serve them. That's like she had another one says I have a mother. So did you ask her permission? She's crying, said no was actually his mother and father because I left them crying said go back and make them smile before I let you go with me. Another one says I have a mother. She's got no one else to look after he goes go and serve her feet. What do you want from Jihad? He says I want gentlemen. So do you have a mother? He says yes, he goes, go and serve her
And then you will find gentlemen.
So the hottest if you've gathered it's not really generalize under the mother's face doesn't have the hottest girls agenda
is not a hadith. The Hadith is that he needs to say serve her feet and they will find gentlemen like that.
The point is my brothers and sisters in Islam everything you do of goodness is a struggle insha Allah whether it be in bite fighting battle like that, or whether it be in calling people to Islam or teaching your deen or helping another person or being good to your neighbor or showing your deen or involving yourself in projects that help people for example, for example, you know, we give so that goes to messages, which is an excellent thing. But sometimes you know, you
you fill up the bucket too much and it tips over the people who come to the masjid or the youth we want them to come by the youth want to get married, for example? Isn't that a form of Masha and Jihad for us together? And Greg make a project where we can gather some data to help young men who are not able to get married to getting married, for example, do we want them to go to ehara Let's make the halat easy. So the haoran can become difficult. When we make the highlight difficult. The heroin becomes easy my brothers and sisters so there are a lot of young people who really want to get rid of make it very difficult. They haven't got the means they want of this still studying the
university they want to make a future when we say why why went to the 2526 and he will lie It's very difficult on them. And I'm not giving an excuse for the young people. Don't you dare take my word as though it's an excuse for you to go and commit Zina Mahara, I'm talking that we need to
focus, change our focus a little bit more. I mean, from a standard of message, it is good. You know, soccer to people outside is good. feeding the poor is good. But we also have needs here that help the youth become stronger, to serve us more to serve the community more. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, just a little sidetrack there that I thought I would like to say, from there until or have many invasions happen many skirmishes many little battle battles. As you can see assassination of Rosa Salaam is happening. Not even a month have passed. And remember the Jews
battle. There were three Jews neighboring within the first one. So
they were the first to betray the Treaty of peace. They had an agreement, remember that they don't harm each other. They don't betray each other. They don't commit treason or anything like that. Ben will clean your car. They started doing the shifty business, who were the Jews of surrounding Medina. They said the first attempt, they tried to cause bloodshed between house and husbands. They sent this sons out and they tried to cause fitna for them to find out that drew swords on each other and the unsought were about to kill each other, the process and him went out and reminded them that Jackie Lee of of tribalism, I put a beneath my feet that there is no you know, there is there is no
merit of another person above another person except in taqwa and so on until they became brothers and sisters again. Then they tried the second attempt, they started bullying the Muslims and harassing the women in the market here and there, not allowing them to live their lives properly, abusing them, trying to attack them sometimes. So Panama, got to a point where the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, he went to them, and he's tried to admonish them reminding them of the treaty and the agreement that they had together, we protect you, you protect us, we fight to prevent it, all that stuff. You don't do these things we live together. And then they gave him a rhetorical. You
know, rhetorical means a smart way, a twisted way, or an intelligent way of saying something in a different way. So a rhetorical for those who know what rhetorical means, or not a rhetorical sorry, a metaphor, metaphor are rhetorical sentences or metaphoric sentences. Right?
So they said,
Oh, these people who fought you in better, they were weak and old. We are experts in fighting. And we will show you what strength we have fewer to fight us, and we will show you the battle
between us and you. So that was an indirect declaration of war against the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. The Prophet peace be upon him got angry, kept his patients and walked away. being very careful, these guys won a battle if they had the chance that will kill the Muslims now. And so what happened one day in the markets, a Jewish man jumped onto a Muslim woman and did something which made her clothes come off, revealing her
so she screamed. Another Muslim man jumped to protect in the struggle and fighting he managed to kill the Jewish man who did that. So then the Jewish man's friends and family jumped on to the Muslim men and killed him immediately. The Muslim man's family got up to him saying we want out we wanted to get revenge for the blood of our brother. So the province of our Salaam went to ban Okinawa and placed the siege on the whole city for 15 days until they gave in
They said we give our wealth women property anything Do as you wish. Now they thought everyone understood universal rule that they were going to be killed. Anyone This is treason this is this is this is an act of this is a crime of war, actually because they're siding with the enemy helping the enemy that attacking themselves after a treaty had been made. This is more than treason. And so they thought they were going to be killed of the live mobile saloon, the hypocrite, remember the hypocrite he was hiding his snap, he jumps up and he goes, yada Salalah you know, look, they were good with us. And we're friends and all that stuff, please spare their lives and whatever. And
props. I said, I'm thinking he's a Muslim. for him. He said, Alright, you want to do that I'll give it to you. I'll spare their lives. But no plan o'clock, you have to pack your bags, pack your families, and you have to be banished, not allowed to be around us anymore, because you're too much of a threat leave. And so they lift and he spent their lives, they went and live somewhere close to Syria, and they were, they vanished, we no longer hear about final cuts as if they were an extinct bloodline of the Jews, then they can battle another, the other Jewish people that surrounded them, and they did even worse, they kept on harassing and attacking and working with the kuffaar until
finally in the fourth year of Asia,
they also had to be banished. And they went to live in hyper. There's a long story to that when we come to it inshallah, but in the meantime, they're being really bad. So the process I sent him he is about double Sofia, gathering an army and coming towards Medina, to fight them and kill them once and for all.
They had 1000 No, they had 3000 soldiers
200 horsemen, their leader was highly than than worried about their loved one was still not a Muslim yet, and 3000 camels. And they even took with them 15 women, among them was healed in order to the women
to encourage the men to keep going and to build their testosterone up and to get the dopamine levels up and to make them fight. And if they wanted to turn back, the women used to say like hinda would say, We are your luxury. And we are this and we are that if you do not fight like lions, our beds or heroine figure, we're not gonna sleep with you. And obviously, there's correlation. And I mean, what are they living for this what they women are for, you know, for them, among other things, but they thought, Man, this is our manliness that's being threatened over here. So they went there with them to, to encourage them.
The prophets, Allah, Allah, he went to the Jews going and nodded. And he said to them, you know, our treaty, Will you fight with us and help us or give us weapons, one of the two, this had to decide. And they said, We will need to fight with you know, give you weapons, even though in the Treaty, which they made said that you're supposed to defend Medina, any one of those and you fight alongside.
They said, No, we're not gonna help you go, we're not gonna do anything. So send them became angry at them and didn't want their participation after that. And you will see later on a group of them tried to come to participate in class and I said, No, I don't want you. I don't want mushrikeen with us to fight against the identities. And that was a statement he said to them, in that time, because the treaty was between them and they broke up. My brothers and sisters in Islam, the process of settling then goes to sleep. And he sees a dream and I'll end up with this dream and inshallah Next week, we'll continue what actually happens after the dream, the professor said him goes to bed
knowing that the before coming to annihilate them.
So he sees in his dream,
a bunch of cameras, no, a bunch of
cows, just sounds funny and noisy, like a bunch of cows. But what he saw was cattle, and there was slaughtered on the floor.
And he saw
that he was wearing a strong, very thick armor.
And he saw the tip of his sword, the top of the tip of his sword broken.
He came out to the Muslim men, and he wanted their council Sure, what should we do? He said, my companions. This is the dream I saw.
And I believe we should stay in Medina. And if the enemy attacks us here, we will fight them in the streets and the pathways. I think we have a better chance that way, instead of going out to meet them in the battlefield.
They said What was your dream manyatta Salalah I said I think the cattle means that lots of my companions are going to be slaughtered
and the deer are the shield that I wore the the the armor that I will maintain means that we should stay in Medina, we're better off guard at him. And the tip of my sword means a member of my family is going to be slain is going to be killed.
group of companions they different. A group said we'll stay here yet I saw a lot but the larger amount of group said will not have we will not fight them except out there, we're not going to let them say that we are cowards and among them what comes out of the alarm, when the prompts are sometimes overwhelmed with that I didn't like the decision, but he went with it. He goes in size. So I live in Atlanta, he weighs two layers of armor, thick layer of helmet different to his usual state, a chain like armor that covered his face with rings in it. And he comes out heavily armed. The Muslims at that time they regret it. They said, Look, you're a solo law, you know, we felt that
you didn't really like our decision. And let's just go now with what you said will stay in Medina.
What did the process seven required.
He said there isn't a prophet, or a messenger of God, that once he wears his armor, and has made the decision that he takes it off and changes his mind.
And this is the meaning of the verse in the Quran for either as a federal worker lalala Once you have made a decision, rely on the law, don't be half hearted, don't be in two minds here or there. Because then you'll fail. And this is when you make a decision for the citizen anything that you do you study it, you try your best and when you've made the decision and then you've planned it, well Don't look back, go full on inshallah and then learn from your mistakes or will be a victory. And so the Muslims are ready to go out with a such a small amount, nearly 1000 which was reduced to 700 later on to meet the enemy. And what did they make them at the land of Beaufort mount inshallah,
next week, we will talk about the details of the Battle of God insha Allah and its events and the tremendous lessons, which is most important thing, tremendous lessons from venerable hood that we can learn for our time. I thank you for listening.
