avina another

00:01:16--> 00:01:18

it is the ninth year after the Hydra

00:01:20--> 00:01:22

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:01:23--> 00:01:26

returns from the conquest of Mecca.

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

In one of the greatest

00:01:33--> 00:01:36

empires at the time, the Roman Empire

00:01:37--> 00:01:38

start to worry

00:01:40--> 00:01:55

about the power of the Arabs on their borders. And so they could no longer turn a blind eye to the activities of the Muslims. And so they raise a huge and massive army

00:01:56--> 00:01:57

and march

00:01:58--> 00:02:02

towards the outskirts of their empire

00:02:03--> 00:02:04

to the area of Tobruk

00:02:05--> 00:02:25

news reaches the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the companions and so he waits until Allah subhanahu wa tada gives him the permission, commanding the believers to march forward to march two taboo

00:02:26--> 00:02:28

for the Battle of Tobruk

00:02:29--> 00:02:31

and so word spreads

00:02:33--> 00:02:34

everywhere in Medina

00:02:37--> 00:02:45

and the people start to prepare for that long journey. And this is when the test begins.

00:02:47--> 00:02:51

dueling due to the particular circumstances of the Battle of Tobruk

00:02:53--> 00:03:03

It was a huge trial and a huge tests, a loss of Hannah who what I wanted to test the man of the believers

00:03:04--> 00:03:19

and he wanted to distinguish between the ranks between those who are truthful to their man, and those who are liars. Leah Misa wha hoo Nakano wha hoo, Leah Dora, me Nina Alana and tamale

00:03:20--> 00:03:23

had javita Minato.

00:03:24--> 00:03:30

Allah would not let you Muslims remain in the state upon which you are until

00:03:32--> 00:03:38

he has distinguished between the evil and the good.

00:03:39--> 00:03:48

And so lagging behind, remaining behind in this particular battle meant

00:03:49--> 00:03:50

that you were hypocrites.

00:03:52--> 00:03:56

If you stayed behind without a legitimate excuse.

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

Then you were hypocrites. And so Allah subhanahu wa Highland revealed

00:04:05--> 00:04:19

the excuses the flimsy excuses put forward by the hypocrites to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam exposing them for who they are. Oh, yeah, after I in sort of two tober.

00:04:21--> 00:04:21

And so

00:04:23--> 00:04:26

among those who remain behind

00:04:28--> 00:04:29

were three individuals.

00:04:31--> 00:04:34

But they did not remain behind because

00:04:36--> 00:04:37

of hypocrisy.

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

But rather,

00:04:41--> 00:04:43

they remained behind

00:04:44--> 00:04:48

because of their weak human nature. They were believers.

00:04:49--> 00:04:52

They were companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:04:56--> 00:04:57

but shaytaan

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

meet them to lag behind

00:05:01--> 00:05:06

And so this is the story of one of these three companions.

00:05:08--> 00:05:10

His story is narrated

00:05:11--> 00:05:13

in Bukhari, and Muslim

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

in a very, very long Heidi,

00:05:19--> 00:05:22

who is the narrator, the companion himself,

00:05:24--> 00:05:27

cab, even Malik, probably Allahu Allah.

00:05:29--> 00:05:31

And so let us hear from Kat

00:05:33--> 00:05:37

the story and the tests, and the eventual outcome

00:05:38--> 00:05:39

of what happened to him

00:05:41--> 00:06:08

gathered in Mali, karate Allahu, and he says, This is my story of remaining back during the Battle of UHC, I had never been stronger, nor wealthier than at the time, when I stayed behind during that campaign, by Allah, I had never before been in possession of two camels until the time of the battle came.

00:06:10--> 00:06:28

And then he mentioned the difficult circumstances of that particular campaign, the Battle of to book and so he mentioned how this was different from other campaigns. It was in the extensive, the severe heat of the summer.

00:06:31--> 00:06:34

The journey was long, from Medina to taboo

00:06:35--> 00:06:36

in a remote desert.

00:06:38--> 00:06:43

Not only that, but they had to confront a massive army.

00:06:45--> 00:06:46

And also,

00:06:47--> 00:06:50

it was almost the time of harvest.

00:06:52--> 00:06:55

The fruits had ripened, and it was time to collect them.

00:06:57--> 00:07:02

And many of the companions were people of agriculture, they had farms.

00:07:03--> 00:07:04

And so it was a test.

00:07:06--> 00:07:10

Who would prefer Allah and His Messenger over the dunya.

00:07:11--> 00:07:25

And who would prefer to dunya over a lion is messenger kavaratti, Allahu Allah, He says, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Muslims, they started to prepare for the journey.

00:07:26--> 00:07:30

And I too, went out to perform to prepare myself.

00:07:31--> 00:07:36

But I returned home without getting anything done.

00:07:37--> 00:07:47

I would say to myself, I don't have anything to worry about. I have the means the ability I have arrived, I have wealth.

00:07:49--> 00:07:53

I could prepare myself at the time of the journey.

00:07:54--> 00:08:09

And so I continue to postpone my preparations until everyone had departed. And it was in the morning, that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the companions, they set out for two.

00:08:10--> 00:08:22

And I had still not made my preparations. I said to myself, I'll prepare myself in a day or two. And then I'll join them, I'll catch up to them.

00:08:23--> 00:08:31

The next day, I set out to prepare myself. But I returned home without getting anything done.

00:08:32--> 00:08:37

The next day, I again set out to prepare myself for the journey.

00:08:38--> 00:08:42

But I returned home without getting anything done.

00:08:43--> 00:08:48

And so this continued until the Muslims had almost reached the book.

00:08:50--> 00:08:50

And then

00:08:51--> 00:08:53

the campaign had passed.

00:08:54--> 00:09:02

Nevertheless, I had still intended to leave and join them. And I wish I had,

00:09:03--> 00:09:05

but it was not destined for

00:09:07--> 00:09:08

calibre viola, who

00:09:10--> 00:09:15

was living a problem that many of us we live

00:09:17--> 00:09:19

the problem of procrastination,

00:09:21--> 00:09:40

where we say we will do something, and we will do it and we will do it. And we keep on delaying until the time is over. And it's too late. How many of us intended to do a good deed, but we put it off for a deed and never came. How many

00:09:41--> 00:09:48

a person who is involved in a certain sin. He says I will repent tomorrow, the day after,

00:09:51--> 00:09:54

or the day after or next week or in a month or in a year.

00:09:55--> 00:09:58

But that didn't that day never comes

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

and so

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

This problem of procrastination

00:10:03--> 00:10:06

is what led Gabrielle De La Hoya

00:10:07--> 00:10:09

to the pitfall that he fell into

00:10:11--> 00:10:19

carrboro. And he continues after the departure of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam to the book.

00:10:21--> 00:10:23

I remain behind in Medina

00:10:26--> 00:10:29

and I interacted with the people in Medina.

00:10:31--> 00:10:35

And whoever I came across was either a hypocrite

00:10:37--> 00:10:40

or a person

00:10:42--> 00:10:52

who had a legitimate excuse. Either they were sick, they were not physically fit, or they did not have the financial means to make that journey.

00:10:54--> 00:11:07

And so, he says, cabra viola, and he says, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he reached a book, until now, he did not remember me.

00:11:09--> 00:11:17

But then one day while he was in a book, and he was sitting amongst his companions, he asked Where is camp?

00:11:19--> 00:11:22

And so, one of

00:11:23--> 00:11:25

one of the companions from Benny selama

00:11:27--> 00:11:31

and Benny selama, was the family the tribe of capital, the Allahu Akbar.

00:11:33--> 00:11:35

He said, Yeah, Rasulullah

00:11:36--> 00:11:43

he was kept behind because of his garments. He preferred his clothes, his luxuries,

00:11:44--> 00:11:45

and his self.

00:11:47--> 00:11:50

And so more as in Japan, probably Allahu Allah.

00:11:51--> 00:12:10

He interjected. And he said, what a wretched statement you have made your Rasulullah I do not know anything except good about cow but of the Allahu Akbar. And so Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, remain silent.

00:12:11--> 00:12:13

And so in this is a lesson

00:12:14--> 00:12:15

rhodiola who

00:12:16--> 00:12:23

he stood up to defend the honor of his brother, and he did not remain silent.

00:12:26--> 00:12:29

And this is the responsibility of the believers.

00:12:31--> 00:12:38

They have the back of their Muslim Brothers, and they don't allow them to be thrown under the bus easily.

00:12:39--> 00:12:44

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, Man rockdoor men are de

00:12:45--> 00:12:47

e menos de

00:12:48--> 00:13:24

Muro de la hora de nada, human Kiana. Whoever defends the honor of his Muslim brother, Allah subhanahu wa tada will protect him will protect his feasts from the Hellfire on the Day of Judgment. barakallahu li walakum.

00:14:18--> 00:14:35

and so cab, even Malik Ravi Allahu, and he continues his story. He says, When news had reached when news had reached me that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was on his way back from Tibet.

00:14:37--> 00:14:39

I fell into distress.

00:14:40--> 00:14:42

And so I started to think

00:14:44--> 00:14:46

of the lies that I could make up

00:14:47--> 00:14:53

to present to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for remaining behind.

00:14:55--> 00:14:56

And so I asked myself,

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

What can I possibly do to avoid

00:15:01--> 00:15:03

His anger with me tomorrow.

00:15:05--> 00:15:19

And so, it was then that I was told that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was on his way. And so the next morning, the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam had arrive.

00:15:22--> 00:15:23

And as you arrive,

00:15:24--> 00:15:27

and he sat in his messaging,

00:15:30--> 00:15:35

those who remain behind, they came forward, one by one,

00:15:36--> 00:15:43

each one of them, putting forward their excuses, and their justifications for remaining behind.

00:15:45--> 00:15:48

And so, it was my turn.

00:15:49--> 00:15:53

And at that point, I realized

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

that there's no point

00:15:57--> 00:15:58

in lying,

00:16:00--> 00:16:02

but rather I have to tell the truth.

00:16:04--> 00:16:05

And so character of the Allahu Han,

00:16:06--> 00:16:25

he approaches Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sees him. gab says his Salam. And he says, The Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam smiles at me the smile of one enraged

00:16:26--> 00:16:29

and so he says, Come forward.

00:16:30--> 00:16:35

And so I come forward and I said before Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:16:38--> 00:16:42

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Okay,

00:16:44--> 00:16:45

what is it?

00:16:46--> 00:16:51

What is it that prevented you from making that journey with us?

00:16:53--> 00:17:00

Could you not afford arrived? Did you not have the financial means? Is that your excuse?

00:17:01--> 00:17:06

And so capital the low and he replied, of course not Yasuda LA.

00:17:08--> 00:17:09

However, by Allah.

00:17:11--> 00:17:16

If I was in the presence of any other man on the face of this earth,

00:17:17--> 00:17:19

I would avoid his wrath.

00:17:21--> 00:17:34

I would avoid his anger, by presenting excuse after excuse, for I have the ability, Allah has granted me eloquence in speech.

00:17:35--> 00:17:53

And I'm persuasive and convincing in my arguments. If I want to present an excuse, I could. However, I am aware, I am fully aware that if I was to utter ally today, to seek your pleasure,

00:17:54--> 00:18:00

then Allah subhanho wa Taala will cause you to become angered with me tomorrow.

00:18:03--> 00:18:04

On the other hand,

00:18:05--> 00:18:09

on the other hand, if I was to inform you of the truth,

00:18:10--> 00:18:12

thereby causing you to become angry,

00:18:13--> 00:18:16

I may nevertheless hope

00:18:17--> 00:18:19

for the forgiveness of Allah subhanahu wa

00:18:21--> 00:18:22

gabb said,

00:18:23--> 00:18:42

No, we are a pseudo law by Allah. I have no excuse to present. I had never before been stronger, nor more wealthier than at the time that I neglected going out with you on this expedition.

00:18:44--> 00:18:47

What a lesson in truthfulness.

00:18:48--> 00:19:03

What a profound lesson in speaking the truth, cow Bravo, wha hoo. And he knew very well, that the only way that he could be saved in this world, and indeed in the next

00:19:04--> 00:19:07

is by telling the truth, and not by lying.

00:19:09--> 00:19:23

And so, after that, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, You have spoken the truth. Now get up and go until a loss of Hannah who would data decides

00:19:24--> 00:19:25

your fate.

00:19:26--> 00:19:27

And so I got up

00:19:28--> 00:19:29

and I left.

00:19:31--> 00:19:33

And as I got up and left

00:19:35--> 00:19:46

a few men from Benny selama remember Benny selama is a tribe of capital the Allahu and his family, his relatives. They got up and followed him.

00:19:47--> 00:19:55

And they said, By Allah, we do not know that you have ever committed a sin or any wrong

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

but you made a mistake today.

00:20:00--> 00:20:11

By not presenting an excuse, before Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam like the others had done Rasulullah is still far.

00:20:13--> 00:20:43

If he was to ask Allah to forgive you, it would have been sufficient for you. Because that is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did with the others. When they presented their excuses, and their lies, the hypocrites, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sought forgiveness for them. But he left their secret affairs to Allah. And so they came to capital, the Allahu Allah. And they said,

00:20:46--> 00:20:48

you could have made an excuse.

00:20:49--> 00:20:56

And then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have made is still far for you. Wasn't that enough?

00:20:57--> 00:21:10

And so they continue to reprimand me until I wanted to go back to rasulillah and fabricate a lie. But then I asked them, is there anyone else?

00:21:12--> 00:21:22

Who is in the same boat as myself? Is there anyone else who was in my position? And so they said yes. To men,

00:21:23--> 00:21:31

who said the same, as you said. And they were given the same directives by Rasulullah, sallAllahu, Alayhi, wasallam, as you

00:21:32--> 00:21:38

and so I asked, Who are they? They said they are murderer in Arabia, and he live in Omaha.

00:21:40--> 00:22:02

And so they mentioned cap says, they mentioned two men who had participated in the Battle of better, whereas I had not participated in the Battle of peder. And these two men were examples to be followed. And so after they mentioned these two men, I decided, no,

00:22:03--> 00:22:05

I'm going to remain steadfast.

00:22:06--> 00:22:08

I'm gonna keep to my word.

00:22:10--> 00:22:11

And I'm not gonna lie.

00:22:13--> 00:22:15

And so in, this is a lesson

00:22:17--> 00:22:22

in this is a lesson of the danger of Bad Company.

00:22:23--> 00:22:24

Those

00:22:26--> 00:22:27

who come to us,

00:22:28--> 00:22:31

showing that they weren't good for us.

00:22:33--> 00:22:34

But they advise us to do something

00:22:36--> 00:22:38

that will throw us into destruction.

00:22:39--> 00:22:43

Capra de la when he was about to go back in life.

00:22:45--> 00:22:46

Why because these

00:22:47--> 00:22:54

individuals who came to advise him Who were they, they were from his own family, they were his relatives.

00:22:56--> 00:22:58

And they showed that they wanted good for him.

00:22:59--> 00:23:04

All you have to do is go back to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:23:05--> 00:23:11

and make up an excuse. And that's it, everything will be okay.

00:23:12--> 00:23:17

And so, this is the danger of that company.

00:23:19--> 00:23:32

And this is the danger of shaytaan for it is shaitan who lures us to make such decisions through such companions.

00:23:35--> 00:23:36

And so what happens after that?

00:23:38--> 00:23:48

How does the story of capital the Allahu, and how does it continue? This is something that we will continue in next weeks. What about the vanilla?

00:23:50--> 00:23:53

how there was Aloo Salima rahima Kamala
