Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah. While he wasapi woman while our brothers and sisters in Islam today, lecture lesson number 28. We are now in the second phase of the event of the battle, or the event of 100, which is the Battle of the trenches, otherwise called the Battle of the Confederates, the Battle of Azeroth, in cola observe, we call the Battle of the hand up in the corner and there is a whole surah in the beginning of it, it's dedicated to that battle, and that sword is actually called soda.
It is in chapter 33 verses I think eight till about
20 they address the events of sort of the opposite. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, and nearly nearly the entire Syrah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. His reference to in the Quran is reference to in the quarter and our last panel data would not mention a reference to events on the life of the Prophet peace be upon him in the end, unless there is deep and very important wisdoms for us to learn, and it is applicable throughout the ages until the end of time.
My brothers and sisters in Islam this week insha Allah or today will continue with the beginning of the faceoff between the Muslims of Medina and the enemies of Islam which gathered against them.
This battle happened
approximately in the fifth year of Israel.
After the Prophet peace be upon him migrated, we start counting the hero 1234 This is the fifth year that the Prophet peace be upon him is in Medina, after the hegemon.
And there is the third battle now the third major belt there's always little tiny battles happening with this is the third major battle we had the first major battle which was battle over the second one, battle boyhood and now Battle of Azeroth. And each of these major battles brothers and sisters are very different to the other one, the lessons are extremely unique that did not get repeated. And these battles happen up to the death of the prophets of Allah salah and I left for us with all the lessons we need to operate with and to deduce what we need from them until the end of time as a community as a home as individuals, brothers and sisters in Islam.
This battle of observe, was instigated just to recap a few points that are important for me to tell you the story today. It was instigated by the Jews that lived around Medina.
The three tribes were banned. Okay, no, God, no, no, there been another Umberto coryza ban, okay. nucar have now been banished, because of their treachery to the Rockefeller Center. And now but another were also vanished that was almost going to be killed according to the international laws in those days universal laws and also the treaty that they had between them. They were supposed to be executed for the Treasury, but the province of our sent them, let them go. And they carried whatever they could have their goods instead of thanking the seller or just saying, look, you know, we did wrong, let's just leave him alone. At least don't follow him. But just leave him alone. No, they
actually took the time to go out and utilize this opportunity to gather as many enemies as they can of monk the Arabs from themselves to annihilate the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And trust me, my brothers and sisters, those Jews have been another did not have any purpose really. They don't they didn't really want to help the Arabs at all. They that never liked the Arabs. Those those Jews have been in have been in Medina coryza. But they want them to wipe each other out so that they can reestablish their business and their trade and their unfair trade and the interest rates so they can stay on top
and empower in around Medina and other places. So my brothers and sisters in Islam, they went to a place called haber. And I think last week I made a mistake Faber is outside of Medina, it's between their entire book so you got maccha Medina and furthermore, is haber. What they did was they went around to all these Arabs trying to gather as many as they can incite them and they went to the people of Makkah, the Mexicans wanted revenge. Sorry, the Mexicans are still not satisfied in the Battle of offered they couldn't win. So they wanted to kill the Prophet sallallahu Sallam wants to follow
He didn't do anything to anybody, nor did any of the Muslims, but it's just hatred. And they don't want the truth because people, especially the elites are the people who are, who want to get rich and those who want to stay in power. You can either stay in power in truth, but you have to suck up being same as everyone else. And the same laws apply to you, or you can follow false and corruption and just abuse the people and oppress and grow with selfishness, right? capitalism is kind of this this good to it and agrees with this, then in some ways, but the capitalism of today has been corrupted. And you know, the, the, the notion the rich gets richer and the poor gets poorer. There's
all this oppression happening to the people in the middle class and lower class, and the Jews in those days. They,
even till today, a lot of them, they, they still have that idea, and it's today it's spread throughout the world. So those Mexican people also wanted to do that, right. They just don't want the truth because the truth will set them straight.
the largest amount of enemies yet together against the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was now 10,000 well armed men from different tribes Mecca, and is another place called a lot of fan local fan is one It is the largest Arab tribe.
And Mecca had the greatest prestige. So they and many other Arab tribes, they came together. Finally, with the help of the Jews, the benefit been a mother, not the bunny, Cora is a very coryza was still the neighbors of the province of our cinema at that time. And at that point, at this point, they didn't take part in treachery yet,
however, but another did as this inciting happened, they gave them their word, the panel not that gave the word to all the Arabs that we will not leave you alone will help you with and they said to them secretly, will even try to go to bunny coryza, our cousins, our, our friends and our cousins, and convince them to also break the contract with Muhammad peace be upon him. They know that the breaking of this contract is treachery, it is treason and it's death. But there was so sure of themselves that they're going to winning brothers and sisters in Islam and so it happened the prophets of Allah send them receive news of the coming of his largest group of soldiers editor of
so panel though very scared, the Muslims were extremely terrified.
To illustrate this, a lot of data doesn't mention this account in the Quran.
Allah said in the journal
una zona de nos is
which means and when they came upon you from above, and from below, when your eyes was stupefied with horror, and your hearts linked to your threats, and you began to entertain diverse thoughts about the law. What's the law going to do to us, the believers would then put to a severe test, and when most violently converged, they were very, very scared, they were terrified. This meant that the annihilation of the entire Muslim Ummah is gone, is only a handful of them in Medina.
But if they die, that's it. It's like saying today equivalent to today saying the largest army has gathered from all around the world to annihilate the 1.7 billion Muslims left on earth. That's exactly, exactly in contrast what he meant in the Battle of Isaiah, to translate it today, it will be like a third of the world more than a third of the world gathering against 1.7 billion Muslims to annihilate each and every single one of them who says have long gone. This is what it meant it was brothers and sisters.
But it must die that will not let the truth die. For He is the one who brought this truth and nobody can beat Allah. Allah says wailuku now I am Kuru la de plan plan and Allah also called some plans
for your own murky
water among the plotters and the plans to plot and plan in good is virtuous to plot and plan for corruption and heroin and depression is the harder thing. So
they gathered against the proximate cause
Allah, as they were coming on their way from Mecca all the way to Medina and around that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam didn't know what to do. So he resorted to what Allah commands every prophet to do.
And that is gather your companions and seek their counsel. Don't just make a decision on your own unless it is from a law.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam suggested a few things himself. And the sahabas asked him, they would always ask him this question. You are a solo Ma. Is this what a lot told you? Or a recent you with your tactics of war that you think would work? And he said to them, it's more I think, tactics of war. So then they said, well, the other solo we see otherwise, we should do this or we should do that. And that's completely fine.
Okay, it's completely fine. My brothers and sisters in Islam.
An example of that is once the Prophet I send them saw some farmers farming, they're about to farm and the farmer said the other Salalah is a better to plant our seeds now or wait until the next season. And they said no plantain now I think they planted them. And then they got it. They said, you're also allowed to hear advice and I died. He said, I'm a man like you. And this is your skill, your experience. You asked me for my advice. I gave you my opinion into what I think. Right? The point of that is brothers and sisters is that the messengers, the province of the law are really actually human beings, and they can make human mistakes, but not in a religion. Okay. My brothers
and sisters in Islam, the prophet SAW sent him salted counsel. And really nobody knew what to do except stay in there and fight them in defense, like what the results and and wanted and originally, in the middle of.
Suddenly, someone came out
a man who was not from the Arabs,
a man who came from in those days, the superpower of the world. Does anyone know who the superpower of the world was 1001 days ago.
It was Persia. Roma, the Byzantium that was second superpower, Persian. For hundreds of years, they were
a very old civilization. Anyway, a man by the name of sedimentary fallacy. Probably a lot of there is a long story to sit around in fantasy. And I advise you to go and read about it. It's an amazing story. The seeker of Truth said men in fantasy, don't do a lot on this man has come from Persia, and embraced Islam. And now and, and now he comes to the province of a large data center. And he said to him, you're a solo. I have an opinion. Back in Persia, we used to deal with the dig deep, long, deep long trenches in the ground, around our fortresses. And it used to work against the enemy and protect us. In those days, they didn't have airplanes and
and, you know, they didn't have airplanes and missiles and stuff like that, of course, what did they have? They had camels, horses, elephants, okay. And delays for arrows, arrows the most maybe catapults that's about it. When you reach a fortress and there is a trench, something stuck up in the ground so deep and so wide. You can't cross it easily. If you want to cross it. The people at the fortress, they've got the arrows and they shoot you to the arrows. And by the time you go down, no, that just that just killed the people in there and that becomes the grave. If you ever seen some castles from if you started at school, the ancient Rome when they have around their castles, a river
like a river, it's not really a river, it's a trench and they opened the bridge and it falls on top of the on top of the water. Yeah. So that is the trench they live with us from the Persians, the Persians my brothers and sisters, I got to tell you something a little bit. They weren't Muslim. In fact, they had a very bizarre belief and I don't know they they had something called Zoroastrianism will make major ism, which means that they they use the fire was was something
the fire was was divine, and connected them to many gods. Among the gods they used to worship is
a car is named after its in its name as master. It's one of the gods it's not hard on to drive a Mazda car because they don't use that name anymore. Nobody ever connects it to belief anymore. But that's one of the gods and if you read about astronomy stuff a lot and read about it if you read anything from the news about astronomy that these guys think that they know the future by reading the stars, or you know, horoscopes people, so I was this this is what it means if I was born in this in this manner for that. I think that's what it is. Terrible reading and all that all this rubbish. This is all ship and superstition and it came from the Persians it came from the Persians
These guys, however, was so militarily advanced, they had so much technology compared to everyone else in the world. Nobody could beat them. They use their elephants in ways nobody else could use them nice to put on them anyways never could ever imagine. So they had so much advancement, technology, math, maths, mathematics and engineering. So manifesta knew this and he said, he also law built a trench, dig a trench around Medina, and double salted. None of the Arabs ever had ever ever witnessed something like this before, they had no idea what he's talking about. They have a trench. They thought about it when he described it to them. They thought that is a magnificent idea.
are they allowed to take technology from before from disbelievers?
The answer is yes.
It is. It is complete. It's actually
it's almost compulsory that if it helps the community to take knowledge from non Muslims, it's completely fine.
No one's gonna say about you imitating the kuffaar. That's ridiculous. So the prophet SAW our settler welcomed the idea tremendously. He was so overwhelmed by he said, we will do it, and it will be our tactic.
But it needed a large number of men.
It needed every single man in Medina. And it's going to be so tiring and so hard that they might even die of starvation. While they're going to dig up.
They don't have much time. Like the amount of men really were close to 3000. We're talking about even 12 year olds, 10 year olds.
Being with the men every single hand that can come and dig they went too deep. As for the women, there was a little fortress that the house had the Arabs in Medina, and they took the women and the really young children and the really old men to that fortress and kick them into that fortress was just outside of the Jewish neighbors called Benny coryza. So they were all inside of Madame bello coryza is from behind them. They're in the south, almost like south southeast.
And the trench had to be built north of Medina.
We don't know the exact size of this trench. But the report from the Venice heart Remember I told you about this storage where I go getting all this information from they say that it was approximately what is equal to two kilometers, two kilometers long.
And about four meters wide, four meters deep, approximately four and a half. That's that's the trench, they had to build a two kilometer trench four meters wide, four meters deep with their bare hands and shadows. This is we're talking about a rocky desert rocks, we're talking about limited time, we're talking about all the men standing and they don't know when the enemy is gonna arrive. And they only did it in a few days. Brothers and sisters, it was so difficult upon them
that it had to take extreme mental power, extreme emotional power, and extreme physical power and extreme spiritual power. All four areas where we can fail in spiritual, emotional, physical, and psychological.
Very, very hard. Let me tell you how
there is fear. Allah said about them, their hearts have reached their throats, meaning you can't get more terrified than them. You're gonna die and neither union family everything non existent. And on top of that, they're going to physically go through all these rocks. And not only a simple thing really huge, emotionally. This kid in front of the family, they're worried they're tired, they're crying, everything
and physically so hard psychologically. Right, psychologically? What is it 10,000 soldiers, how are they supposed to be 10,000 soldiers just given in surrender.
And also spiritually? How can they take the promise ourselves promise, that gentleman is this, that they will be martyred if they died in FY 17 layer, that they can't also be victorious forever, they're going to reach certain parts of the world. This requires so much even and that's what a lot of hand picked brothers sisters, listen to me. A lot hand picked these companions. They're not just any people. A lot of hand pick them. Samantha came away from Persian, Allah and people. These were the people who carried the deen on their backs for us today. If they were gone, we would have no guidance. They're not like us, then absolutely nothing. Not even we're not a speck next to them. I
know that people say that but you don't appreciate it until we really see it. You start to really hear the details of what they went through.
So they began digging.
Every man was there.
The only man left behind who was young enough
Was Hassan in effect of the law?
Senator, the third was a great poet. Forget about all the rappers today. This guy was the media of the Muslims. Nobody could match him in his poetry. Remember what we said about the Arabs in the few few lessons back? That then media was poetry. It was everything. The video was poetry, the more powerful you had an influence on the entire Arab World Association and had her sentimentality embraced Islam when he embraced Islam.
He said what they have said, the great poet, none other ethnicities are so across and so happy when he embraced us that there was only one flaw with him. And that is, he wasn't brave, to wasn't brave physically to go out and fight. He had a problem with that. However, the beautiful beauty about the companions is that, then being our role models doesn't mean they are wrong, or each one of them has a role in everything. And just because he has one floor doesn't mean that you talk about it, when you say is not good senators that have stood stances which a worker or a man it is right, none of them could stand why can he stood with his mouth, and he could have been killed while standing with
his mouth. We know today, anyone who speaks out is in danger. So if he spoke out, and he didn't care, but when it came to battle, he wasn't gonna fight. So he stayed back. I sent him a third of all the online
the men began to dig and dig until
they came a huge stone, you know about that story,
a big boulder. And nobody was able to break it.
So they called the Prophet salado center.
And he came along
as he came to watch his companions, because the seven was digging with them. There was about 10 minutes every four cubits or so. And the problem was Elon was in one one place, he did not sit back, digging double what they were digging, he came along and saw
a companion lifting his shirt saying yes to the law, I'm starving. They've been digging for days now.
And what they used to do when they stopped was that these they get flat rocks
and time on this stack.
Why? Because the stomach churns and starts to rub against itself. And then develop also is when you're, it starts basically eating itself away when you get so strong. For example, they stayed digging for three days without eating a single bite, just water
and hardly sleeping and they're afraid. A man lifted his shoulders got two rocks on
the prophet SAW said and smiled, lifted his shirt he had three walks from saw seven is even hungrier. So they're working at that pace.
And the rest of the competitors one had a rock the other two rocks.
The professor seven said, I'll take care of that being bombed. They had the break and they lifted the enemy's gonna climb right over and they're finished. So grab the axe or whatever it was.
And he said this is when he hit the boulder the first time and it sparked. Okay, big spark kind of like lightning. And he broke. About a third of the processor has settled and then cheered his smile so hard. When you smile so hard. He could see his gums I can hardly see his gums on this was so cheerful and you can see his guns. And he said
he said, Persia his house.
In other words, I can see its doors in front of me. Allah has given us Persian,
Persian the superpower. Well, these guys are about to die. They're about to be annihilated. They can't even find food. There's only a number of them. 10,000 soldiers coming to kill them and they say we're going to take over Persia.
There was a group of one African hypocrites who was standing aside now they took part
but because they don't want to be caught out who disintegrates and then we'll just making little remarks. The hypocrites approach was one of the worst approaches you can have of abuse. It's called passive aggressive, passive aggressive, you don't know what to do, but they just hate you. And you trust them. Apparently you don't know what hit you. These guys are manipulator freaks. What they did was they kept making comments and little remarks says
started elbowing each other same person but didn't let the process I'm seeing that they let the other companions seem they started the weak ones, the ones that had half hearted pride, and they said Persian were about to be enlivened, and he says we're gonna get Persian
man something's happening from hunger and the Prophet you know as probably saying stuff. And that actually made some of the way people think you know, this is
This is where you're the man is tested. Then the props are seven, hit the ball.
For a second time, it's Bob. And he said, I can see the doors of Yemen, Yemen. Now the great Yemen was occupied by
who? You guys got back about 15 lessons ago.
Remember, we left you in Syria, Yemen,
also by the Persians. I can't remember the Persians were in Iran in Iran, today's picture over there, and now they're occupied.
What they have occupied Yemen.
Yemen is another big place. And then he hit the border a third time. And he said, Allah has written a sham for me, I could see his beautiful doors. Now who was occupying Sham
the Romans, the second superpower of the world, and that was the headquarters. Okay, that was the headquarter for the a sham, a sham. I've said it before, but you need to know to share these brothers and sisters, it's very important for us to notice, a sham means Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Jordan, and parts of Turkey. That was all one was called a sham, greatest Syria. After World War One, the British and the French and the allies, they started to divide our lands into different flavors and divide and conquer. That's the model, obviously was a result of treachery and betrayal within the Muslims themselves, unfortunately.
But alas, promised does not
ever fail. It's been 100 years since the last thing.
Don't lose hope the NFL will come back, the Muslims will be back, whether they like it or hate it.
I lost my dad, I promised this. And someone is there is
no one is going to break a complaint. My brothers and sisters in Islam, the prophet SAW Selim in this absolute dire need when they thought they're going to be annihilated and killed. He's telling them that they are going to be the most glorious and successful in the world, they're going to become the superpower.
Unbelievable. And that's why he said the fact that will be faded as you do always be optimistic, and you will find it be a person with a high vision. Even as a teacher we say to the twelves, aim for 99. As you enter school,
even the weak ones and 70 minutes not be realistic as of yet you you'd be realistic of yourself stops blinking. So negative 8499. If you get 99, that's fine. But if you're aiming for 99, we then get somewhere close or just below it not too far away. If you aim for 70, you probably end up with a 60. And for the highest, the highest and I also is that when you ask a law firm Zhanna asking for the highest places, don't just settle with a little bit, aim for high and see what you get when you get
my brothers and sisters in Islam. And that's what happened with a bola the Muslims was so overwhelmed by that beshara by that news that it had a reverse effect on the majority of the campaigns that made them so much more motivated because the words of the seller or the Absolute Truth, none of them ever denied his voice. They believed in truly
my brothers and sisters in Islam, so they began to continue digging, as they will begin. They start to get tired and all that stuff. So they started to do what to help them motivated and work as a team. You're not going to believe what they started to do.
I don't think it'll cross your mind. Do you know what to do?
the young ones need to sing. They started to sing.
They start to sing. And I'm singing. And what they did was they started to chant beautiful words with a made up. Every one of them was a producer of songs. So they I'm just joking. So they said
Allahu la Ayesha Ayesha
answered he will know how beautiful these words are brothers sisters, what that was saying was he got the Menagerie who came from Mecca to Medina right? And the answer or the mathematic Medina people, they became brothers and sisters in Islam, and what they were singing was on law there is no real good life except the life of the hereafter. This world is nothing our life so forgive the answer that might have saw the people of Medina oil mohajir and the Maha God. You see how they bonded together. Being together motivates us upon being together as one brotherhood as the prophets are sending them said and congested in the world. The believers alike one body is
a mystery What if one part of your body is in pain, the rest of it
Can't sleep and it brings out fever in your all night because of that one little pain, a pain in your foot pain in your head or pain in your heart, the rest of it will be sticky. Oh, yes, we may draw for all our brothers and sisters around the world, wherever we can help them with we help them. We don't say to them and we are here we are together in the shower. And our social community has to be together, you know, isolate yourself and be an individual on the footnotes or be together my brothers sisters in Islam, at heart and in our mind, and and positive positive is man I can't express there's so much negativity to be positive. Why should we say negative only breaks the hearts
even if it's true, don't say if there's no need to say the positive process, I'm always on the positive. And just a very quick side note here, there was one of the components of the law or the law of the law. He was there very, very famous companion, very famous one of the top top of the companions. This is
among the longest and he learned from them directly. They describe his character like this, he never pointed out the negatives in any person, be it
being the best or the worst. That was his character. And he focused on guiding people through positivity he saw once these three guys, they were drinking alcohol and singing just music. I don't know what it was. And one of them had a nice voice and we're seeing that. So I'm loving this whole season. He lives his cover and we lifted it. And he said
What a beautiful voice you have
didn't come up there and say, you know stop singing with your sight and voice I love her that autonomy rather put it in alpha. Now. He sat up and said What a beautiful voice
how beautiful would it sound if you're in the end
and the guy became a student forever winner right?
This is amazing to motivate especially people who are close to you if you're married your children, all that stuff to motivate each other positiveness.
My brothers and sisters in Islam, that's how the process of Los Alamos now, as they were digging in and getting everything ready, all the men stood there with the arrows. And nobody was allowed to leave their posts from the beginning of one mountain to the end of the rest of this over Kennan volcanic mountains and pantry so they can't get through that very rough terrain. The only place they can enter from was if Bernie coryza the Jews behind him were to betray the prophecy of ourselves and let them into from there. That was the only weak point and the prophet SAW Selim don't think he's stupid. He's also a pseudonym is extremely intelligent, and he's always observing his thinking about
burning horizon. He knows that you can't really trust them. You got their partners who left and betrayed them. And they're in this predicament because of their neighbors. Now, bunny coryza processor has got his mind. So he's always sending companions to go and see, how are they going? Are they still okay? They're still sticking their promise, or are they not?
So far, so good.
Then the kuffaar arrived?
Actually, I'll tell a little story before they arrived. There was a Sahabi there. His name was
him. I forgot. What the 11. Anyway, this is a hobby jacket.
Lalanne. He had two stones tied to his tank. Remember, the guy I told you about? That was him, say cannons. And I said that in secret. And he said he
actually went to his wife first. And he said to his wife, what do we have food here? She said, we have a tiny you female sheep, and a little bit of weight Bob. She has how much wood they feed. And he said, three or four people said I'm going to call the profits of the last element two or three. She goes, Yeah, don't call too many. Otherwise, would you embarrass us? We don't have enough. So it goes to the prompts that I sell them in secret. And he says to him,
we have a little bit of meat
for you. You can bring about three or four of your companions come to my house and you can eat. You felt sorry for the last seven smiled and said, well, thank you.
Excuse me. He stood up on a boulder and says, Well, as you didn't know Saul
has invited us to a banquet. He invoice the entire songs off, walked out. I don't know a couple of things. He says he's got a feast for everybody rocks up eight
to seven runs to his wife and secret. He goes to
Did you tell? Did you send a news about a lot of people coming said no. What did you What have you done? She said he invited everyone.
How many hundreds over 1000.
And she was a bit shocked. She said did the proxy law send them notice what we've got? And she said yes. And she said that he
tell you anything special? He said, Yes. He told me that you should not serve the food until he comes. And then she said to him, along, Allah knows best. So she calmed him down and said, well on his best, I wonder what's gonna happen. This is this is a good wife, this is a true wife, you know, somebody who really knows what relying on a dialer is. And sometimes the wife turns her husband down, they are they support one another, they support one another. And this is true strength. It is not the strength of the muscles is the strength of that determination, net reliance. My brothers and sisters in Islam.
The prophet SAW Selim arrives,
and he opens the pot and puts a bit of his saliva.
saliva has no odor. Okay? It's amazing. Even his sweat had no smell.
And what he did was he started feeding the soldiers with his own head, who would put bread, a little bit of barley and a bit of meat with the source and he would,
and he would feed it to them.
Every soldier was satisfied.
And the poll was still full.
This is undisputed in duration.
And then of course, I'll send them I lost and he said Tom, Japanese family ate to your food. And whatever is left, we'll give it to whoever's still hungry.
So they ate last night. This was one of the miracles that happened during that time.
So a lot is within
the enemy's arrived.
They were shocked at this trench, never seen something like this before the horses fell, they fell, they couldn't cross, what are they going to do. And the arrow starts shooting at the enemy, I think about three or four o'clock a little bit. And even an entire battle with this whole stage. And the about four or five of the Muslims died, were mounted and about six or seven of them actually came down. So it wasn't where there were lots of casualties. But it was more of a moral sort of fear. And it was a test of patience and human and so on.
The leader of the of the kofod was a recipient.
And he was so determined to get him but he saw that there's no there's no point they can't cross.
So the before Move back.
And they had no other option except a tent to sit there. And for the first time. They did something the Arabs have never been used to before they laid siege, they trapped them inside. We will not let them out. Let them starve until they come up to us. Okay, you know that famous saying we're gonna smoke them out? You know what I'm talking about? These are the tyrants of the world who say stuff like that. And this has always been the case with enemies of the day. I was again, we're going to starve them to death and they'll come out to us. But a lot is within
the kuffar on the other side. They started to look for a place to get in.
Listen to what Allah says in the Quran. Yeah, you have Medina. Spiro
wasabia. What are these first came down, telling them Oh, you do believe?
Stay steadfast, be patient. Don't leave your posts. While saw bu single Speedo means to be patient yourself. Sabino.
It means compete in patience, compete impatience to care for a patient, your patient, beat them impatience. Allah says what are the two and stay steadfast Allah says another verse, he says in contempt Allah mood for insomnia.
If you are feeling pain, I tell you now your enemy is also feeling pain, the same way you're feeling pain, but the difference is what are assuming I mean a lot. This was coming, to encourage them, but you hope. Listen to the key brothers and sisters, you hope for something they do not hope for the hope is the hereafter. They have a higher purpose, a higher goal that if you do not believe in Allah and His Messenger, you cannot match that goal. They're thinking of
they're gonna go to the evidence to paradise. And they believe in a wholeheartedly to go further and have that.
That's the key. Your victory is your goal and your belief
You feel the pain, they feel the path but the difference is that your goal is different to this. You have a high high high Eclipse that cannot be matched by anyone in the world.
So Morocco sisters in Islam, this was where the picture is going to be.
There was one little space
And only about four of the performer managed to cross it. The names would
hardly be worried. We only heard nobody drive. No one can match even strengthen smartness and cutting cunningness and walk. And there was also
the son of the greatest enemy of Islam publisher who was killed in the Battle of butter, aka my son. And there was a fourth one, I crema and heard about it, and the third one, they all embrace Islam later on. So Panama, as far as I know, would this guy have to tell you something about you know, when you say the boogeyman?
You know, you say the boogeyman,
So this guy
All right, was
the boogeyman of the Arabs.
Okay, he was a
legend, legendary warrior, and he was actually about 80 years old. But he did not look very strong. Everybody feared him. Everyone says founder of Norwood bank, mothers used to put their kids to sleep when they cried too much. They used to say if you don't sleep, I'm gonna lose coming. Well, no, this is exactly what he's like the boogeyman
came across. And he said,
I challenge anyone to face me.
The province of our salon goes inside, goes back to the Muslims, and he says you must face
and no one of them put their hand up.
Except one, Riley.
The processor said I knew that I was still too young. He's only in his early 20s. And the processor I sent them didn't want him to go. He waited for someone older, more experienced either on a student experience there was going to face this great warrior, this legend.
Baba Khalid put his hand up again, I will face me out of solo, then a third time I will face him out of solo.
And this is the thing about young people.
Not encouraging go and fight. That's not the point. The point is determination,
of fear, to stand for the truth. If you can convince the young person the truth, and you're going in with wisdom, there'll be the greatest asset. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam. The majority of his companions were young people. And he's the focus on the young more than the older. Why? It's only natural that when we get older, we get more stuck in our ways. It's harder to convince an older person to change their mind. But a younger person, they're risk takers.
And a massive majority of these companies will like that, we've got to be careful. The young people must take advice from older and wiser people.
And we must be careful in guarding them. Because we can easily manipulate the younger people a lot of questions about that they are our responsibility.
And we they are our responsibility, and we are their responsibility.
So the prophet SAW Selim guided them, he said it okay. If you're determined, then you're going to go and face
a law determined.
So he went out and FaceTime with Norwood and was on his horse. He says to him,
You have nothing like they still have respect for each other. They said nephew
All right, go back. You don't have to find him. He said I want to find him.
He said one. He said enough talking earlier. He says I heard that if you were given two options.
You swore an oath that you will always choose one of them. If somebody gave you two options, you're gonna you will choose one of them you went back off he goes, That's true. He goes my first option to you is I invite you to embrace Islam. say the Shahada as shadow
I'm gonna go it looks at and goes I have no use with embracing slam I don't need it. What's the second option? Yeah, I was sitting there. The muscle is about to be annihilated is a young inexperienced kid basically compared to entrepreneur would and he has the audacity in their eyes to invite him to Islam second Shahada
embraces lack a shadow. It says not. So then it goes like what's the second option? He said, The second option is that you fight me to death.
got irritated that and he said Listen, I'll fight but send me someone else let what do you do and
he says, I don't want
to cause your parents grief over your death. You know what he says to him? So if you don't want to grieve my parents, I want to close your eyes.
And group notes got so angry at that, that he climbed off his horse.
And he actually cut his horse, he cut in the legs of the horse consider not being used and slept his horse, it was a show of courage that you're a little kid coming here to fight me. And while you're standing on your feet, I can't fight you on I'm on my horse. So he broke his horse's legs out of anger, slapped his hose to show them that I will not use my horse you're gonna find on your legs. And you're talking like this like a disrespectful little brat. I'm going to show you what what it's all about unifying on your feet or for your mifi and the battle began between them. swords and shields went on for for a very long time on Long Island and the dust rose, the Muslims are looking
at the photo looking and in some of the he the word Allahu Akbar.
And they see with the lavon he's got his gruesome guises but that's how it was they had
his head on the tip of his sword and he held it up like that was on the floor. This This was unbelievable. This was an Kenny is just out of this world. And all the Muslims May.
Allah Allah is the Greatest allies the greatest true. This my brothers and sisters cause the other three warriors who crossed to go back the guy is the young one killed a legend of ours, we've got no hope, including holiday is back. They thought there there is some there is some support coming to them here from almost.
Look in battle, of course,
there was support, but they failed. Even though the processor that was with them.
In this battle, the success of succeeding while the process ends with them. The key is not that the products are synonymous with them. The key is the muscles being together in order to one cause with a high goal, and sincerely intending to only uplift and uphold the standard community and to defend the truth. And to be at a pace that the enemy wants to be at peace. These this this is what it's about my brothers and sisters in Islam. And so the battle continued.
Something terrible happened.
Something terrible happened.
News, secretly got to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the midst of all this.
That Benny coryza
the Jews, the last left, the ones that were protecting Medina from the back.
That day, they had broken the treaty with the Prophet ciloxan.
Remember, but another the other Jews. Their leader was created after he comes to tourism. And he calls upon the leader.
They're all family cousins. He comes up from the Congo fortress. And he is standing outside, right? They went there. I mean, at first, when you put them in there, I'm gonna betray the postmaster. They're just too scared. So he he says, Let me and I just want to talk to you. And the leader. I've been in court as I said, Never. We don't want to talk to it on anything to do with you. And don't even
know that you even spoke to us.
You know, we don't want anyone to find out.
And he kept trying to talk let me in let me in let me in. But the leader of that manipulator in the end, he shut the door. And then for a while after I've said something that made them open the door for him. He said an Arabic word that is quite humiliating and disgraceful for anyone to in those days, he said, the only reason you're leaving them and let me in is because he's just too stingy to feed me some of his bread or his water.
It's a statement that the Arabs used to humiliate the other person, you know, so if now if he gave an ultimatum if he doesn't let him in now that everybody will think, a rumor that this guy is a stingy person. And that was big. I mean, although there were Jews, there was still Arabs lived among the Arabs and they were used to their customs and their language and everything right? They were like, like almost pure Arabs. And they had the same sort of reactions to these things. They don't want this. So then he led a meeting. And a bunch of top got him with his manipulative words. He said, Listen, he got all almost all the Arab tribes for the first time gathering got 10,000
soldiers, you got us. If we are victorious, you take over Medina and it's yours. We don't even want to stay in favor. you operate Yeah, well operated.
And if you lose, they'll protect you. They'll take you out, you know, that promise to protect you the operational methods they did. They have the promise to protect them if they lose. It's gonna say it's a win win situation now.
He tried talking to him
Until finally he convinced
and then he said or I will break the contract
when the process and have heard about that news, he didn't believe that without investigating.
Brothers and sisters a very valuable lesson here for us as individuals as a community.
The Senate is hearing this news about an enemy who he knows, is not honest. And he receives the news from companions who are known for their honesty. Yet even though it was almost 100% sure, he still has to verify don't go against them even though they could be enemies or not even Muslim.
Verify. Allah says in the Quran Yeah, you enter in Amman injera, confess if you've been infected, or you believe if a person comes to you with news,
a terrible news.
Verify first why and placebo home and be gehad in case you attack a people out of ignorance not knowing the truth, not knowing the whole story, so to speak, or identify to Naveen and then you will regret making that decision or taking action.
Come to the letter members in our community. Why myself now and take them as role models in this will learn. If there are two people involved, they will never say a word or judge without hearing the other side. And only if if if. And only if the one who's heard the news knows that they can do something about them. Like let's say you want to reconsider between two people. But if they'd have no business, it's just rumors. They don't even want to hear the other side. They just forget to say excuse me, we don't want to hear this stuff. Just move away. I can't do anything about it. Go and tell someone who can.
He should he should shine is any when it comes to talking about your brother, your sister in Islam and anyone else. If you can do something about it to fix the problem, and they've come to you for advice, then you got to verify the other side. But majority of us really have nothing. We have no business in other people's lives. Right? And people you should just come to sort of just let it out. You know, don't entertain them with this because this is how we destroy our reputation other people's reputation. So he sent some of the abnormal health or the lohana another great companion in Southern Nevada, South Dakota blue wire. We used to be friends with the bungee cord, so they trust
him. He went with him and he asked them
we heard a rumor that you guys have broken the treaty with Mohammed Salah Salah Is that true
in authentic light from behind the fortress,
Panama the terrorists, they responded and said that he was the chief tin of ups. He was a big man very important and loved him. Sonos is one of those promised paradise as well. But he had a temper. And at this point, his temper was justified. He got so angry at them, that he started swearing at them with the most violent words.
Okay, if you're in a situation only in the extreme situation, which is very difficult, then I can say to you, okay, swear that Hello. But
look what his friend said sounded no better. He says something. And the Jews were responding in the same way. You and if you and if this is responding, I want you if you and his friends, he taps out and whilst his comments are calm, then
the matter the situation is bigger than words,
your words not gonna benefit anything. Don't waste your breath. And that's a very, very wise advice from Southern Nevada to start a new life, telling him listen, we are not people who are self taught us to be like this.
He taught us to think of the bigger picture. If words can resolve it, then go ahead. But the mirror is bigger than words now.
And that's when sad. he calmed himself down and just walked away.
My brothers and sisters in Islam
how many times you get into a disagreement with someone
And then the other person uses that swear word that you said against you and changes the whole topic. Now that the victim
happened the law because they know they're in the wrong they finding a reason to make you in Iraq. So Muslim is not a hash or a hand and this is not a curse, not a swear person swears. All right, only in extreme circumstances. When
he returned back to the Law Center and secretly told him that the news was true.
Why did they do
This news now means that all of us was going to be annihilated. That's it, they're gone.
Instead of telling them about the news, the professor sent them smiled, went up and said, Allahu Akbar. And everybody thought, Wow, great news. He said, Allah is going to give us victory.
Opposite, Allah is going to give us victory.
You see what I'm talking about optimism. If he had told them any other way, they would disarm them. And they would have decided their loss before it even came. And this teaches his lesson brothers, sisters, anything you do in your life, anything that's worthy, so long as this Hello. And someone has allowed you to do it, and it's worthy. And you're not, you're not sure will you fail? Will you succeed? Just do it. Go ahead. For either as Allah says, once you've made a decision, then rely on Allah make it right, make a decision and start working towards making it You never know what a lot of times you do not decide failure from the beginning. And the Lord knows what happens tomorrow.
This is just fear. And 90% of things we fear don't even happen. So we didn't want them to decide that their loss from there by saying, oh, we're going to lose, and that's when they would have written their loss. But instead it motivated them.
And the battle continued.
Now, eight minutes,
we'll finish this apart. And then I'm going to stop at a very crucial point to talk about it next week and show
a lot of data
make something happen. You remember when I told you that the Muslims left the women in the back in a particular fortress and has settled with that because with
with those women was a very courageous, strong
who raised a very strong, courageous, rough and tough man by the name of his obey the law.
The first cousin of the Law Center was his Auntie Sophia.
Sophia was over 60 years old, well over 60 years old, Batman, was she tough lower in and out.
The Jews sent one of this soldiers to check out the fortress of Medina. They were ready to see if there's any men in there. If they knew that there was only women that call the phone and say hey, we can come in from here. But they were very scared. So that they sent a Soldier Soldier was saying walking in Medina in the city. And you couldn't see anyone and he noticed the fortress, who noticed him suffering in the purpose of Los Alamos is paternal Auntie's father, sister, Sophia.
And she said to her son, that no fat? Yes, and you're the man and mom's killing. Don't kill them. Let them think that there's many other boys brought dead robot. You got to send them a message
of some service panela because the only thing that some people don't miss understanding. It was just his nature. So Pamela, you said to her, Sophia, I would, you know my problem.
I just can't do it. I can't, I can't I can't tell someone.
You know, Allah created him for a different purpose. And he still had his value.
So Sophia said, I'll do it myself.
She goes and grabs the data, and the big boulder rock. And she goes on top of the wall of the fortress. she climbs that 60 something year old woman climbs up onto the fortress, which tells you in ages just a number, right? I just just the number magazines where
you would know age is just a number.
she climbs up, grabs the big rock whites for the soldier to come forward and throws around him.
The guy goes unconscious on the ground. She runs outside another gruesome scene, but they have to do it grabs a knife.
And she says his head and then goes to the fortress of the band equalizer and throws his head over
and goes rolling in front of everybody. And they go you let him
there's men in there the soldiers these guys officious and then they started getting scared. They would not dare to open the doors for the performer to come in. They said this is tough. This is tough. We need some support here.
That was the role of Sofia. It'll be a lot of fun.
Then a miracle happened.
And then by the name of No,
no, I'm, there's a long story for nine there was a joker a comedian, but he was with the kofod at that time, and he was trusted by the kuffaar of Mecca. And he was trusted by the Jews have been equalized. He was a trusted man. They both liked him. He had dealings with them. In the middle of the night, he crosses over the trench and says to the companions, wizards who will love I want to convert to Islam.
didn't say that. We have no timeframe, we're in battle. The purpose is on a messenger of God, bring him let's give Dawa. So he comes over and says, here's a few words from across our center embraces Islam on the spot. And he says to him, You are so long, what would you like me to do to support you and help you? And he says to him in a non threatening way, you're just want a manual. Just go back to the people and wait until the battle is over.
And then he says your soul of law. If you want, I can trick them. Remember, I told you the comedian is good actor. He knows how to trick. So the folks that are selling them said he can.
And he said well, if you allow me is allowed. I have to lie on the sofa. Cool. I'm gonna lie. He says for cooling and horrible.
War is trickery. Muslims are gonna lie, a lot of betrayed, except anymore. It's tactics as a matter of life and death, brothers and sisters justified. So he went to the people.
And to the people of the Jews. He started off with the Jews. Not not Yeah, no, I am beautiful, man. We love you, friends. He comes in. And he says to them, you guys know how truthful I am to you. They go Yeah, it would never need to be triggered. He goes, Okay, you know that? You trust me right away. He says, Listen, I love my people and everything. But I'm not a man who betrays? So I gotta tell you, what are you gonna tell us? He said, I heard my people say that they're running out of steam. They're about to give up and go.
And they're lying to you. They're not going to protect you. They're going to leave you. And Mohammed is going to come and kill you.
He said yes. So what should we do? He said, Let me give you an advice.
Ask my people to give you 10 of the elite soldiers, the elite warriors, the elites as an assurance so that they don't abandon.
And when you ask them,
they're gonna say no. If they say no, it means what I'm telling you is true. They're gonna leave you alone. If they give you good.
He goes back to his people, and says to them the opposite. He says
the Jews regretted what they did. And they were afraid of Mohammed. So they secretly went to Mohammed savasana and apologized. And he wouldn't accept their apology until they gave him a promise. They said, We will give you 10 of the elite warriors
as a sign of our price, and the profit accepted from them.
And also he answered No, have you tell him the truth says yes.
So they went to him. I was a fan and the rest to the bunny coryza to receive his mind's word with truth.
So they come up to the Jews and they say,
how's everything going?
Good. I said, but we have a concern the Jew said. They said, How do we know that you're gonna abandon it? They're gonna support us What if you go and abandon us? They said, We already gave her our promise, we will not abandon me. They said, Give us 10 of your les mores. As an assurance
that was so if you're interested,
stretchers, people know I was right. They're going to take them and give them to the profit.
They said, The deal is off. Everyone went away. deal's off with us to
the left and nine cause them to divide. Now the fortress is protected again.
They stayed for a few more days for about maybe 40 days the whole thing and then almost sent a stone and the wind to make the dust come out. And the Arabs not used to that stuff, man. They ran out of food there. And so Apple Sophia picked himself up and said, I can't handle this anymore. We're leaving. And so there's
a lot of talks about this account in the Quran. Allah said
Allah said believers call to mind that last favor to you. When enemy hosts invaded you. Then we sent against them a wind and hosts that you did not see although a law was observing all that you will do then doing.
My brothers and sisters in Islam.
within Islam, Allah spent Allah Allah
and Allah will not change the state of the people until they change the state that is within themselves espoused with yourself, then with your family, and with your neighbors in your community. And so
we'll still have a lot of water that will come in while he was on the edge. My name is Sam ID
