There are these days in life where you feel like everything's going well. Everything's going in your favor. People are happy, you're happy things are mapping out just the way you planned.
Then when you expect it lease, the tables turn. This is something that we see
specifically during the Battle of the holidays are marching towards Madina. Munawwara thirsty for revenge, and they just want to completely wipe out the Muslims. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prepares for the battle with the companions and lays out a very clear strategy. In the first part of the battle. The Muslims followed the Prophet strategy and victory was more or less there's the Quraysh began to turn from the battlefield and run away, and everything seemed to be
according to plan.
However, there was a group of people who in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam specifically told not to abandon
their post. And when they assumed that victory had presented itself and the battle was over, they made the mistake of abandoning their post. Shortly thereafter, the whole battle flipped.
And the Muslims began to struggle to even keep their ground.
They were being attacked from all directions, and some very beloved and dear companions of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lost their lives, the uncle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Hamza, he lost his life. What are the Allah one say you the shahada in the Battle of God, it brought so much pain to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
seeing Senior Companions,
who were by his side from the earliest days, that they were also martyred in the Battle of odd. What made the situation much more trickier was that the people that were attacking the Muslims were
the people of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, these were the Quraysh This was his tribe. There's a difference between someone from the outside hurting you and someone from the inside hurting you when of your own people. You weren't expecting this. Allah subhanahu mcdata describes the Battle of HUD in so much detail.
Because the Muslims suffered a great loss that day, it got so bad that at one point, someone shouted out in the battlefield, quit data Muhammad, that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has been martyred, with all the news that we see right now. And all the stories of tragedy and how Gaza is being decimated. You begin to wonder man, this is all over. Like there's no recovering from this. That's the stuff chiffon does to you. Makes you despondent, whose hope with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being pronounced as martyred. That's what happened to the Companions. Kind of lost their confidence. Some of them just threw their weapons down and said, forget it. There's no point.
