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

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam, Al atta Manuel, Camilla and Johanna Johanna kala he died

00:00:13--> 00:00:19

while he was so happy woman died we had the wisdom of the soulmate the unique deal.

00:00:20--> 00:00:21

Ultimate eliminate me and

00:00:22--> 00:00:25

once I know Bhima Island Turner was eaten at Rhema

00:00:27--> 00:00:35

already that would help Lachlan What is Open Aktiva arena and Belvita beltmann What is openers? Tina, would you already know Neiman? Yes, tell me.

00:00:36--> 00:00:41

Tell me, sir for that. Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

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

Last week we started

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

to discuss the next major battle in the lifetime of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And that was

00:00:57--> 00:01:05

the Battle of 100 Duck to battle with a trench or it's known as the Battle of Azad.

00:01:07--> 00:01:15

And so we spoke about the role of the Jews in bringing together this coalition

00:01:17--> 00:01:24

that comprised of Quraysh their army, and other tribes and especially the tribe have a lot of fun.

00:01:27--> 00:01:31

And we spoke about how difficult and tense the situation was,

00:01:32--> 00:01:36

how you have this huge coalition

00:01:38--> 00:01:40

coming, preparing to

00:01:41--> 00:01:43

annihilate the Muslims.

00:01:46--> 00:01:48

And then how matters got worse

00:01:49--> 00:02:00

with the last remaining tribe in Medina, the last remaining Jewish tribe in Medina, and that was Ben graver. How they also joined the coalition.

00:02:02--> 00:02:07

And we ended up by we ended off by looking at the reaction

00:02:09--> 00:02:15

of the Buddha to call the hypocrites when they heard about this alliance.

00:02:17--> 00:02:18

And the reaction of the believers.

00:02:20--> 00:02:26

And all of this was outlined in the ayat of surah, Al Hassan

00:02:30--> 00:02:39

it's all know the hijab, this coalition army they arrive outside of Medina

00:02:41--> 00:02:43

and they are in utter shock

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

at what they see

00:02:47--> 00:02:50

they had come thinking that they would just roll over Medina

00:02:51--> 00:02:53

due to their large numbers.

00:02:55--> 00:02:57

But now they were in front of a dilemma.

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

Medina is fortified.

00:03:05--> 00:03:06

There is no way to enter.

00:03:08--> 00:03:09

And you have this huge trench,

00:03:10--> 00:03:14

something they had never seen before. Something that the Arabs are not used to.

00:03:17--> 00:03:18

So they end up camping

00:03:19--> 00:03:21

outside of the trench

00:03:23--> 00:03:26

while trying to infiltrate across it.

00:03:29--> 00:03:33

But the problem was that every time they would try, they were faced by

00:03:34--> 00:03:36

the arrows of the Muslims.

00:03:37--> 00:03:41

And so every time they would make an attempt to advance

00:03:42--> 00:03:43

the Muslim archers

00:03:44--> 00:03:46

they would target them and shoot them.

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


00:03:51--> 00:03:56

a few of their horsemen were successfully able to infiltrate

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

and cross the trench.

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

And so when that happened,

00:04:05--> 00:04:09

they ask the Muslims for some doing some one on one.

00:04:11--> 00:04:12

Because they're alone,

00:04:13--> 00:04:18

the armies behind them what can they do, except to ask for a duel.

00:04:20--> 00:04:24

And so among them was one of the ferocious fighters of Quraysh

00:04:25--> 00:04:28

by the name of the hammer, even added wood.

00:04:30--> 00:04:35

So he challenges the Muslims to send forth one of them.

00:04:37--> 00:04:39

The one who went forward was who

00:04:40--> 00:04:42

Isley are going to be Bali probably a long way.

00:04:43--> 00:04:46

But I remember he asked him, Who are you?

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

He says I imagine.

00:04:50--> 00:04:53

So he asks Riley Ibn abdomen if

00:04:55--> 00:04:58

he says no, I am actually in an eternity.

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

So I'm gonna says,

00:05:02--> 00:05:03

Oh nephew.

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

They were among you your uncle's, your elders who are more senior than you?

00:05:12--> 00:05:14

I feel sorry spilling your blood.

00:05:15--> 00:05:20

So how do you build the wall right, he says, but I don't feel sorry spilling your blood.

00:05:23--> 00:05:25

It's all this man. He wanted

00:05:26--> 00:05:30

someone more senior, someone stronger to come and meet him.

00:05:31--> 00:05:38

He thought he Rhodiola Wang was some small kid who was no match for him.

00:05:40--> 00:05:44

But after he heard what I do the love, I said, he got upset.

00:05:46--> 00:05:48

So he drew his sword.

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

And they exchanged balloons.

00:05:54--> 00:05:58

And Hamilton, he strikes the shield of the ire of the wildlife.

00:05:59--> 00:06:04

However, the blue was so hard that his sword

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

ended up

00:06:07--> 00:06:23

it ended up getting stuck in the shield of Ayala land. So he couldn't take it off. So I highly are the Walkman and he then takes advantage of the situation. And so he strikes a hammer in the neck. And so he falls down

00:06:24--> 00:06:27

the Sahaba Radi Allahu Anhu and then made they make the clear.

00:06:31--> 00:06:32

Beside besides

00:06:33--> 00:06:36

this man hammer, the banana dude.

00:06:37--> 00:06:41

There were four others who had crossed with him crossed over the trench.

00:06:43--> 00:06:45

A second, we're into a match with

00:06:46--> 00:06:47

a Zubia did in an hour.

00:06:48--> 00:06:50

And it will be it will be a while and also ended up

00:06:51--> 00:06:59

killing him. Now the remaining three, they saw what was happening and they they ran away they went back

00:07:00--> 00:07:01

to their cap.

00:07:05--> 00:07:08

Besides this, the Muslims are also successful.

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

They were successful

00:07:12--> 00:07:14

in shooting

00:07:15--> 00:07:16

at the army, as we mentioned.

00:07:19--> 00:07:20

They were able to target

00:07:24--> 00:07:28

and Santa's abandoned me what else? What are the alarm rang.

00:07:29--> 00:07:31

He was one of the best shooters

00:07:32--> 00:07:33

among the muscles.

00:07:34--> 00:07:40

So he had in his sights, this enemy soldier who was holding two shields.

00:07:42--> 00:07:54

He was kind of teasing themselves, because he would move down his shield a bit so that the upper part of his head would show

00:07:56--> 00:07:57

and then he would cover it again.

00:07:58--> 00:08:02

He kept on doing this, like try to hit me if you can.

00:08:04--> 00:08:07

So sad Rhodiola when he was a sharpshooter,

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

he aims at the men at the man. He aims at him and he shoots him while the shield was down.

00:08:17--> 00:08:20

And he ends up hitting a brick with his forehead.

00:08:22--> 00:08:26

So the man he falls back and his legs go up.

00:08:29--> 00:08:36

And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he saw that and he laughed because of how, you know funny the situation was.

00:08:40--> 00:08:44

However, besides these heroic scenes

00:08:45--> 00:08:50

that the Muslims displayed, they also suffered casualties.

00:08:51--> 00:09:01

And so I Aisha Radi Allahu Ahad her she says sad even word. And he is one of the leaders of the axon.

00:09:03--> 00:09:07

She says he was a tall and large man, and he was wearing armor.

00:09:08--> 00:09:16

But his arms were not covered. His arms were exposed. And she says when I saw him, I was really worried about his arms.

00:09:17--> 00:09:20

And her fear turned out to be true.

00:09:21--> 00:09:23

He was shot by an arrow.

00:09:24--> 00:09:28

He was shot by an arrow that hit him right in his arm

00:09:29--> 00:09:32

and it cut the mean vein.

00:09:35--> 00:09:36

This vein once it's cut,

00:09:38--> 00:09:40

you cannot control the blood basically

00:09:41--> 00:09:44

from spilling and coming up.

00:09:45--> 00:09:46

So he was seriously injured.

00:09:47--> 00:09:49

However, he survived initially,

00:09:51--> 00:09:53

but this injury

00:09:54--> 00:10:00

would eventually lead to his death later on after the battle, as we will

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

We'll see. We'll talk about it next week in Sharla.

00:10:04--> 00:10:05

Besides him,

00:10:06--> 00:10:15

there were at least five of the companions who fell as shahada in this battle. However, as we can see,

00:10:18--> 00:10:24

no major fighting happened. It wasn't an actual war that took place.

00:10:27--> 00:10:30

But rather these were some minor skirmishes and

00:10:32--> 00:10:35

fatalities and casualties that took place on both sides.

00:10:38--> 00:10:38


00:10:40--> 00:10:43

that hazard, this coalition army,

00:10:44--> 00:10:46

they simply laid siege

00:10:48--> 00:10:49

to Medina.

00:10:50--> 00:10:56

And this continued the siege continued for approximately 24 days.

00:10:58--> 00:10:59

And so it was

00:11:00--> 00:11:02

a difficult time for them to service.

00:11:03--> 00:11:08

You know, it's not easy to live under siege, with your enemy

00:11:09--> 00:11:13

watching you and attempting to attack him.

00:11:15--> 00:11:19

It was such a difficult time that on one day,

00:11:20--> 00:11:24

the Muslims were being attacked, and they were

00:11:26--> 00:11:27

fending off their attack

00:11:29--> 00:11:30

for the entire day.

00:11:32--> 00:11:34

From morning until evening.

00:11:36--> 00:11:38

The enemy just kept them busy.

00:11:41--> 00:11:46

To the point where by the end of the day, they end up missing salata, Lhasa,

00:11:48--> 00:11:50

and now the sunsets.

00:11:51--> 00:11:54

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was very upset.

00:11:55--> 00:11:57

It Radi Allahu Agnew lyrics

00:11:58--> 00:12:11

and this is in Sahara Haiyan Sahih Muslim. He says on the day of 100 The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, may Allah fill their houses and their graves with fire.

00:12:12--> 00:12:28

Just as they have prevented us from praying or Salah to Lusaka, the middle prayer which refers to Sinatra hustle, he says, just as they have prevented us from praying the middle prayer until the sun hits.

00:12:30--> 00:12:46

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also heard a rumor or the Allahu Akbar complaining about the same thing. He was cursing the enemy, because he missed his Salah. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to him and said, I too have not prayed.

00:12:48--> 00:12:51

It's all they all went. And they prayed.

00:12:52--> 00:12:54

salata, Lasota, as kava

00:12:55--> 00:12:57

after the sun had set,

00:12:58--> 00:12:58

and then

00:12:59--> 00:13:01

they paid Margaret after.

00:13:02--> 00:13:11

So all of this shows us how difficult the situation was. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would never miss a single Salam

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

no matter what the circumstances.

00:13:16--> 00:13:26

But the fact that he did, shows us how difficult that day was. And those days and almost an entire month,

00:13:27--> 00:13:30

they are under siege by the enemy.

00:13:33--> 00:13:37

So with not too many options, the consoles do not have too many options before him.

00:13:40--> 00:13:44

This coalition army, barely they are laying siege to him.

00:13:45--> 00:13:48

He has to figure out something he has to come up with some kind of strategy.

00:13:50--> 00:13:53

It's all the prophets of Allah, he was started planning.

00:13:54--> 00:13:56

The strategy was to breach this image.

00:13:58--> 00:14:02

And his plan was to basically break this coalition.

00:14:05--> 00:14:09

Because they have come united, we have to divide them.

00:14:11--> 00:14:12

And so what he did is

00:14:13--> 00:14:14

he went to

00:14:16--> 00:14:19

the tribal artifact. Now we mentioned last week

00:14:20--> 00:14:21


00:14:22--> 00:14:30

this army coalition was made up of Quraysh and their allies, and they represented 4000 men.

00:14:32--> 00:14:36

But the army, the entire Alliance was 10,000.

00:14:37--> 00:14:41

The remaining 6000 was the tribe a lot of

00:14:44--> 00:14:47

so they were more than half of the army.

00:14:49--> 00:14:54

So the Prophet SAW Selim went and secretly met with two of their leaders, the tribal philosopher,

00:14:56--> 00:14:57

he proposed to them

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

that they withdraw from the

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


00:15:01--> 00:15:04

in exchange for paying them

00:15:06--> 00:15:10

1/3 of a year's harvest of the harvest of Medina.

00:15:12--> 00:15:13

So they agreed

00:15:14--> 00:15:16

and they wrote up a document.

00:15:18--> 00:15:22

But they did not finalize it by bringing witnesses.

00:15:24--> 00:15:26

So the agreement was not finalized.

00:15:29--> 00:15:32

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam calls

00:15:34--> 00:15:35

two of the leaders of the unsavoury

00:15:36--> 00:15:37

for sure on

00:15:38--> 00:15:43

site. Even more have inside if you don't know badda

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

notice here that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:15:49--> 00:15:52

only made sure with Dancehall

00:15:55--> 00:16:01

even though there are companions who are more senior and closer to the process, and then, like Abu Bakar, like Rama

00:16:03--> 00:16:09

this shows us that Shura and consulting is not done with everyone,

00:16:11--> 00:16:14

but only with the concerned people in every situation.

00:16:15--> 00:16:19

Since the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was offering the harvester media

00:16:21--> 00:16:29

which belongs to an O center cartridge. It belongs to the unsought he needed to seek their counsel

00:16:30--> 00:16:31

and not the module.

00:16:33--> 00:16:40

So anyways, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shares with the two of them what he had proposed.

00:16:43--> 00:16:46

So they responded, they said Ya rasool Allah,

00:16:48--> 00:16:49

is this something that you wish to do?

00:16:52--> 00:16:59

Or is it something that Allah has ordered you to do? And so we have to implement it, we don't have any choice?

00:17:00--> 00:17:04

Or is it something that you are doing for our sake?

00:17:05--> 00:17:07

You know, is it your wish?

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

And so we will

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

obey whatever your wishes? Or is it a command from Allah? In that case, we have no other choice?

00:17:20--> 00:17:24

Or is it something you are doing for our sake? If that is the case,

00:17:25--> 00:17:27

then we're going to object.

00:17:28--> 00:17:43

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Yes, I am doing it for your sake, by Allah, I am only doing this because I have seen that the Arabs, they have come and they are shooting you with one single boat.

00:17:48--> 00:17:55

Meaning that all the Arab tribes have come they have unified against the Muslims to attack you.

00:17:57--> 00:18:01

And so we have to do something to break this coalition.

00:18:03--> 00:18:07

It's so sad. It'd been wired or the alarm it says y'all Rasulullah

00:18:09--> 00:18:15

we used to be disbelievers. We used to be emotionally cool. We used to worship idols.

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

With these people, we were

00:18:21--> 00:18:23

with them in the same religion.

00:18:24--> 00:18:27

We did not worship Allah nor did we know Allah.

00:18:29--> 00:18:49

And the while we were in that state, they meaning coration was not a fan. And all these Arabs would never have dreamed of eating a single date of ours, except either as guests or

00:18:50--> 00:18:51

to purchase.

00:18:52--> 00:18:57

Should we now give them our wealth, after Allah has honored us with Islam

00:18:59--> 00:19:03

led us to Him and given us glory through you and through him.

00:19:04--> 00:19:12

We will have none of this by Allah, all that we will show them is restored until Allah decides between us and them.

00:19:16--> 00:19:18

And so they were basically saying that,

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

you know, these tribes and these Arabs would never have dreamed

00:19:24--> 00:19:26

of taking anything from us.

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


00:19:29--> 00:19:37

The only time they would eat a single day of ours is if we invite them as guests or if they buy it from us.

00:19:38--> 00:19:41

So how can we just, you know, give them

00:19:42--> 00:19:46

our wealth, just like that so that they could leave.

00:19:48--> 00:19:49

So this shows you

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

it shows us the the courage of the Tsar and their Iman, and how they were insisting

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

on firing, it shows you the strength of their Iman. And that they were not willing to negotiate with the enemies of Allah and His messenger. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said as you wish,

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

and then sadly been wild, he took the document

00:20:18--> 00:20:24

from the Prophet sallallahu he also erased the Raiden from it, saying, now let them fight us

00:20:29--> 00:20:32

so how did the siege end

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

and then came to the Prophet sallallahu and it was

00:20:42--> 00:20:43

out of nowhere,

00:20:44--> 00:20:46

this man comes and he was from hot off

00:20:49--> 00:20:51

and he says, Yasuda Allah

00:20:53--> 00:20:55

I have accepted Islam

00:20:57--> 00:20:59

but my people don't know of this.

00:21:01--> 00:21:03

Give me whatever orders you wish.

00:21:08--> 00:21:09

Give me whatever orders you wish.

00:21:11--> 00:21:16

This man his name was no hanging up Mr. Route A lot of time.

00:21:18--> 00:21:19

And so

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

he comes in, he says, I'm a Muslim, let me join your army.

00:21:28--> 00:21:29

But when you come to think about it,

00:21:32--> 00:21:33

it was the wrong time to become a Muslim.

00:21:35--> 00:21:38

You know, the Muslims are weak, they're under siege.

00:21:41--> 00:21:46

The enemy has the advantage over them. But he came forward because

00:21:47--> 00:21:49

ALLAH SubhanA who had died it was the one who attacked him.

00:21:50--> 00:21:55

He was a soldier of Allah, on a island would do the Rebecca Illa who

00:21:56--> 00:21:59

knows the soldiers of Allah except he.

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

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you are just one man.

00:22:05--> 00:22:11

You know what, what benefit will one person do? Joining our army.

00:22:13--> 00:22:16

He said, the prophets also said to him however,

00:22:17--> 00:22:19

I want you to use deception,

00:22:20--> 00:22:21


00:22:23--> 00:22:25

to relieve us of them if you can.

00:22:27--> 00:22:29

In that he said for in horrible.

00:22:30--> 00:22:32

That war is deception.

00:22:34--> 00:22:36

Basically, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will say

00:22:39--> 00:22:50

you joining our ranks is not going to make any difference, but if you can use some deceptive technique to weaken your people that do that.

00:22:52--> 00:22:54

So he is an asset.

00:22:55--> 00:22:56


00:22:57--> 00:22:59

He is a very valuable asset

00:23:01--> 00:23:03

not in joining the Muslim army but rather

00:23:05--> 00:23:08

infiltrating the ranks of six he is one of them.

00:23:10--> 00:23:14

Also, since he himself said my people do not know that I have become a Muslim.

00:23:19--> 00:23:21

And so this shows us

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

how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was extremely clever.

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

You know he,

00:23:29--> 00:23:35

he would look at the skills of people and then use them for the right place.

00:23:36--> 00:23:46

And we've seen that in many examples before and we see it again here. He didn't give him a sword and say, you know join our ranks, but rather

00:23:49--> 00:23:58

seeing the skill that a person has and what he had. He told him based on that to do what you should do. So know how you are on your Walkman.

00:24:00--> 00:24:00

He lives

00:24:01--> 00:24:05

and he figures out he comes up with a plan.

00:24:07--> 00:24:10

He goes first to the Jews have been played.

00:24:13--> 00:24:17

Remember that they are within the boundaries of Medina

00:24:18--> 00:24:26

and they have joined the Alliance. He goes to them and he says you owe me and I know you.

00:24:28--> 00:24:33

You know our friendship and you know that I will only give you sincere advice.

00:24:34--> 00:24:44

What you have done is wrong. He was telling the Jews what you have done is wrong. You have decided to fight against Muhammad. But you are living in Medina.

00:24:45--> 00:24:50

You're winning your children your property all all here.

00:24:51--> 00:24:53

You know you're not gonna be able to run anywhere

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

else for kurush and a lot of fun. They have come from

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

Your land,

00:25:01--> 00:25:04

they have come all the way from there to fight.

00:25:05--> 00:25:09

But they are women, their children, their property or somewhere else.

00:25:11--> 00:25:13

Now, Qureshi and Otto fan,

00:25:15--> 00:25:22

they are going to try to seize the opportunity to defeat Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But

00:25:23--> 00:25:29

if that opportunity does not arise, then they are going to pack up and leave.

00:25:31--> 00:25:33

And you know what will happen after they leave?

00:25:35--> 00:25:37

Muhammad will attack you first.

00:25:38--> 00:25:43

Since you are right here in Medina, and you have broken the pledge between you and him.

00:25:44--> 00:25:47

And you know, you cannot face off alone

00:25:48--> 00:25:51

against the Muslims. So they said,

00:25:53--> 00:25:54

What you're saying is true.

00:25:55--> 00:25:56

So what should we do?

00:25:58--> 00:26:00

So, no, I am not the wild man, he says,

00:26:02--> 00:26:03

You want to make sure

00:26:04--> 00:26:10

that Qureshi, and a lot of them are willing to fight until the end.

00:26:12--> 00:26:14

Until we all achieve our objective,

00:26:15--> 00:26:18

not just trying to win, and then if,

00:26:19--> 00:26:21

you know, if it doesn't work out, we'll just leave.

00:26:22--> 00:26:30

But rather, you want to make sure that they stay behind and fight with you until the end, not betraying you, not leaving you.

00:26:32--> 00:26:33

So they said, Okay.

00:26:34--> 00:26:36

But how can we guarantee that

00:26:37--> 00:26:38

he said,

00:26:40--> 00:26:41

Go and ask them

00:26:42--> 00:26:44

to leave some of their men

00:26:45--> 00:26:48

as an assurance as a guarantee when you

00:26:51--> 00:26:56

this was a practice that existed in those days or right.

00:26:58--> 00:26:59

It was not something unusual.

00:27:00--> 00:27:06

You leave something valuable, either material wealth or people

00:27:07--> 00:27:08

as a guarantee,

00:27:09--> 00:27:10

as a security.

00:27:12--> 00:27:13

It's over him.

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

He told him to take some men of courage and hotter than as an assurance that they will fight until the end. Because obviously, they're not going to leave without their men.

00:27:28--> 00:27:31

So the Jews have been Karela. They agreed to do this.

00:27:33--> 00:27:35

Now know him, he leaves the Jews.

00:27:37--> 00:27:38

And he goes to

00:27:39--> 00:27:39


00:27:41--> 00:27:42

He tells them,

00:27:43--> 00:27:52

you know how close our friendship is. And you understand that I would be sincere in my advice to you. And I would only tell you the truth.

00:27:53--> 00:27:56

I come here because I have something to disclose to you.

00:27:58--> 00:28:01

And I want you to keep this information classified.

00:28:04--> 00:28:06

They said yesterday, we trust you.

00:28:07--> 00:28:10

And you know that. So go ahead.

00:28:11--> 00:28:13

So no, I'm not the one man who said

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

the Jews have regretted

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

the fact that they have

00:28:21--> 00:28:28

a note and cancel their agreement with the Prophet sallallahu was this betrayal of the Jews?

00:28:29--> 00:28:30

He says,

00:28:31--> 00:28:35

I have information from the Jews that they have regretted this.

00:28:37--> 00:28:42

And now they are involved in negotiations with Mohammed.

00:28:44--> 00:28:48

They are involved in negotiations with him to reenact the agreement.

00:28:51--> 00:28:53

And they have made an offer to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:28:55--> 00:29:08

The author is that they will hand over some of your men to him to be executed as a show of sincerity. And to show that they were sorry about what they did.

00:29:11--> 00:29:20

So nine says to Quraysh if some of the Jews come asking you for some of your men, do not give them any.

00:29:22--> 00:29:28

Then Ryan Robbie, well man he goes to the hotter fan. And he tells them the exact same thing.

00:29:31--> 00:29:32


00:29:34--> 00:29:37

the siege was taking a long time.

00:29:39--> 00:29:44

Almost a month goes by and Quraysh and also a lot of fun. They were getting sick of it.

00:29:46--> 00:29:50

Remember that they had not come to Lee siege to Medina.

00:29:51--> 00:29:53

They had come prepared to fight

00:29:55--> 00:29:58

and there's a huge difference when you come with an army prepared to fight

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

where you're thinking you're only going to be here for a few days maximum versus

00:30:06--> 00:30:09

coming, prepared to leave a siege

00:30:10--> 00:30:15

where you couldn't be here for months. So they weren't prepared for any of this.

00:30:17--> 00:30:19

And they were surprised when they came and found a trench.

00:30:21--> 00:30:23

So they were not prepared to stay for a long time.

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

They didn't have the supplies. They didn't have the provisions.

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


00:30:31--> 00:30:33

I Kadena even at the jail,

00:30:34--> 00:30:40

was sent to head a delegation to meet with the Jews have been Craver.

00:30:43--> 00:30:44

He said to them.

00:30:46--> 00:30:51

We are getting tired of this long siege. Our camels and our horses are dying.

00:30:52--> 00:30:56

We want to wage and all the war. So get ready.

00:30:57--> 00:30:58

We're gonna attack today.

00:31:01--> 00:31:03

The Jews, they responded, they said,

00:31:05--> 00:31:07

you know that we don't fight on the Sabbath.

00:31:10--> 00:31:12

Apparently, that day was Saturday.

00:31:14--> 00:31:20

So they said, you know, we don't we don't fight on this day. And some of our people that did that,

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

you know, such and such happened to them, they were punished.

00:31:25--> 00:31:30

They said, plus, we're worried that you may not stay the full course.

00:31:32--> 00:31:36

We're worried that you may not stay until the end with us fighting.

00:31:38--> 00:31:41

Remember what nine came in told Ben Karela.

00:31:44--> 00:31:52

So the Jews, they said to him, they said to ensure that you are willing to fight until the end, we want you to want

00:31:53--> 00:31:56

to hand over some of your name and security.

00:31:59--> 00:32:04

So I can he went and conveyed this message to Abu Sofia.

00:32:07--> 00:32:09

And Abu Sufyan says, This is it.

00:32:11--> 00:32:13

This is what Nauheim told us,

00:32:14--> 00:32:16

that the Jews have betrayed us,

00:32:17--> 00:32:19

and that they want to hand over our men to

00:32:21--> 00:32:22

to Mohammed.

00:32:24--> 00:32:32

And so Abu Sofia, he sends a message to Benu calleva We are not going to send a single one of our men, not one of them.

00:32:33--> 00:32:48

So when the Jews heard this, they said, This is exactly what nine told us that these men are not serious, and that they are going to leave us to suffer alone at the hands of the Muslims.

00:32:49--> 00:32:51

And the same thing happened with

00:32:52--> 00:32:52

a lot of

00:32:54--> 00:32:55


00:32:56--> 00:32:57

in the end,

00:32:58--> 00:33:11

one man single handedly succeeded in breaking this coalition. And this was all part of the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala because

00:33:12--> 00:33:16

the Muslims had passed the test of either

00:33:17--> 00:33:28

the test of patience, perseverance, and putting their trust in Allah. So in the end, Allah's victory has to come. Allah's relief and help has to come.

00:33:29--> 00:33:30


00:33:32--> 00:33:34

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:33:35--> 00:33:38

was using a powerful weapon. What is that?

00:33:40--> 00:33:40


00:33:43--> 00:33:53

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was saying Allah Hoonah moons either Kitab Surya he said is email Allah magazine whom was zinhle

00:33:54--> 00:34:02

Or Allah revealer of the book quick to take account defeat that zap Oh ALLAH defeat them achieve them.

00:34:03--> 00:34:09

In another narration, Allah Moon zero key third module Yes, sir herb

00:34:10--> 00:34:13

has even hazard example Moses zilver

00:34:14--> 00:34:20

Oh revealer of the book, The one who causes the clouds to move

00:34:21--> 00:34:37

and the destroyer of the result. Oh Allah defeat them and shake them. And so Allah subhanho wa taala. He answered this to her. And he said, soldiers, which the muscles could not see.

00:34:39--> 00:34:40

And so,

00:34:41--> 00:34:42

Allah's help finally came

00:34:44--> 00:34:46

in the form of

00:34:47--> 00:34:51

a soldier of his, from among his creation,

00:34:52--> 00:34:58

and that was a fierce cold, bitter cold wind on a dark night.

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

This wind caused their tents to blow away.

00:35:06--> 00:35:08

It caused their fire to be extinguished.

00:35:09--> 00:35:12

It caused their cooking pots to turn over.

00:35:13--> 00:35:16

And it caused everything to become buried in the sand

00:35:19--> 00:35:23

and sold the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he wanted to get news on what was going on.

00:35:26--> 00:35:28

He wanted to know what's going on on the other side.

00:35:30--> 00:35:33

So he sent Tuesday for Ebola man robiola.

00:35:36--> 00:35:39

Email, him narrates the story.

00:35:42--> 00:35:45

And this was the story.

00:35:46--> 00:35:50

It is years after the death of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam.

00:35:51--> 00:35:54

While they follow the award when I was in Iraq,

00:35:55--> 00:35:57

and anon from Kufa came

00:35:58--> 00:36:09

asking him, he asked him, have you actually seen the Messenger of Allah? And were you really a companion of yours? So who later said Yes, nephew?

00:36:10--> 00:36:12

So this man, he said, How did you treat him?

00:36:14--> 00:36:18

So today for over a woman, and he says, it was difficult for us.

00:36:20--> 00:36:22

I swear but Allah, but we tried our best.

00:36:24--> 00:36:25

So the man,

00:36:26--> 00:36:27

he says,

00:36:28--> 00:36:29

I swear,

00:36:30--> 00:36:39

if we lived in his time, we would never have allowed his foot so much as to touch the ground, we would have carried him on our shoulders.

00:36:41--> 00:36:49

So this man, he had heard stories of the Sahaba, or the love behind him, and how they treated the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:36:50--> 00:36:55

But he had heard that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went through a lot of difficulties.

00:36:56--> 00:36:58

As we know he was injured in the Battle of of it.

00:37:00--> 00:37:03

And look at how difficult the situation was on this day, the battle.

00:37:06--> 00:37:11

So they heard these stories, and they thought that the Sahaba are the one with whom they didn't do enough.

00:37:14--> 00:37:20

And he said, if I was alive in the time of the process, then I would have treated him much better.

00:37:21--> 00:37:24

So who they follow the Allah who actually wanted to teach this man a lesson.

00:37:27--> 00:37:29

He wants to show him how it's easier said than done.

00:37:31--> 00:37:34

And he wanted to give them an example of how difficult it was for them.

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

So he said, nephew,

00:37:39--> 00:37:40

I swear

00:37:41--> 00:37:44

by see us now with the Messenger of Allah on the day of hunter.

00:37:45--> 00:37:50

He says, I am there on the day of the Battle of hunt duck.

00:37:52--> 00:38:06

After the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had prayed for a part of the night, he turned to us and he said, Who will volunteer to go and see the enemy and what they're doing, and then come back.

00:38:09--> 00:38:11

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:38:12--> 00:38:22

He said that if this volunteer goes and does that and comes back, he would ask Allah to make this man to be his companion and Jana.

00:38:26--> 00:38:31

Now, the Sahaba are they work? On other occasions, they would quickly

00:38:32--> 00:38:35

compete for such a status.

00:38:37--> 00:38:39

But on this particular day,

00:38:41--> 00:38:54

due to how difficult the situation was the severe fear, anxiety. And then on top of that, he was extremely cold. And they were hungry. And we mentioned this last week.

00:38:56--> 00:39:02

They didn't have anything to eat. Because of all of these factories, not a single man got up to volunteer.

00:39:07--> 00:39:09

And so the Sahaba on the Allama had home.

00:39:10--> 00:39:12

You know, they weren't even thinking straight by now.

00:39:13--> 00:39:17

So Khalifa will be one where he says, since no one had written,

00:39:18--> 00:39:21

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called upon me.

00:39:22--> 00:39:27

And once he had done so, I had no choice but to go.

00:39:29--> 00:39:43

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told me Khalifa. Go and infiltrate the enemy. Go and see what they are doing. But do not cause any ruckus. Do not cause any trouble. Then return to us.

00:39:45--> 00:39:46

He says to I did,

00:39:48--> 00:40:00

he says, The strong wind and Allah soldiers meaning the angels, were greatly damaging the enemy, leaving them no fire nor pots. No

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

pretend standing.

00:40:03--> 00:40:05

Abu Sufyan, he got up and he said

00:40:06--> 00:40:11

Quraysh let every man check the person sitting next to him.

00:40:12--> 00:40:20

So Abu Sufyan was worried that in such weather conditions, the enemy can easily come and infiltrate.

00:40:22--> 00:40:24

So check who's next to you.

00:40:25--> 00:40:27

Today follow the alarm. And he says,

00:40:28--> 00:40:36

When I heard that, I quickly took the mat. I quickly took the hand of the man standing next to me. And I asked him, What is your name?

00:40:39--> 00:40:41

And so they follow the alarm and he acted quickly.

00:40:43--> 00:40:52

And he asked the man, what is your name before he could ask him? What is your name? It's always a smart move. Now they follow the alarm. And he then said,

00:40:54--> 00:40:59

the man who told me who he was. And then Abu Sufyan. He said,

00:41:00--> 00:41:02

We are not here in a permanent camp.

00:41:04--> 00:41:06

Our horses and our camels are dying,

00:41:07--> 00:41:14

and better corredor they are at odds with us. And we have heard things about them that we do not like

00:41:16--> 00:41:17

that they have

00:41:18--> 00:41:20

left us and they're,

00:41:21--> 00:41:21

you know,

00:41:23--> 00:41:26

re engaging in an agreement with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:41:27--> 00:41:39

He said, you can see what we have lost due to the severe wind, how our cooking pots won't stay upright. We can't keep fires burning, and our tents standing.

00:41:40--> 00:41:47

He said, Therefore, you should leave. Because I'm about to get up and leave.

00:41:48--> 00:41:50

He then went to his Campbell.

00:41:51--> 00:41:52


00:41:53--> 00:41:54

he got up on it.

00:41:55--> 00:41:56

And he was about to leave.

00:41:59--> 00:42:04

That is where who they follow the alarm. And he says, Now Abu Sufyan was all by himself.

00:42:06--> 00:42:15

If it had not been for keeping the word of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what did the prophets also tell her? They said, Don't cause any trouble.

00:42:17--> 00:42:18

Just go

00:42:20--> 00:42:22

check out what's happening and then come back.

00:42:24--> 00:42:33

Today, if it says, had it not been for, you know what the prophets of Satan had told us told me to do. I could have easily shot him in the head with an error.

00:42:35--> 00:42:56

So I returned to the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam. And I found him praying, shrouded in a cloak, belonging to one of his wives. When he saw me, he asked me to come in and sit by my feet by by his feet. And he threw an end of the wrap over me. He then finished her salah.

00:42:58--> 00:43:07

And then I relayed the news to him. Then when a lot of hands had heard what Porsche had done, they also hurried off home.

00:43:10--> 00:43:14

In another narration of the same story, in Sahih, Muslim,

00:43:15--> 00:44:05

the narrator says, We were with the data, or the Lord Wang when a man told him if I had been alive with the Messenger of Allah, I would have fought alongside him heroically Hadith I said, Would you indeed, once we were there, at the Battle of Isaiah with Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam. It was nighttime. And there was a fierce Cold wind blowing. He asked us, is there no man who would bring me news of the enemy, and be with me on the day of judgment? When none of us responded, he asked the same question the second time and the third time. Then he said, whatever, you go and bring us news of the enemy. Since he had called me by name, I had no choice but to get up. He said, Bring

00:44:05--> 00:44:15

me news on them without causing them any alarm about you. So I left. I made my way to them, feeling as if I was walking through

00:44:16--> 00:44:18

a public bath. Hmm.

00:44:19--> 00:44:20

This basically,

00:44:21--> 00:44:25

scene signaled how warm he had felt.

00:44:27--> 00:44:28

So this was

00:44:30--> 00:44:56

Allah giving him that warmth. It was a miracle. Otherwise, it was a very cold night. He says, I found a boo Sophia, and they're warming his back to the fire. I place an arrow in the center of my bow, and I was about to release it when I remembered how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had told me not to give them any alarm about it. If I if I had shot, I would have hit him.

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

Right on

00:45:00--> 00:45:00

his head,

00:45:01--> 00:45:24

I then left to return to the sort of Lysol cellar. And again, the feeling of walking in a public bath overcame me. When I arrived back, I felt very cold and chilled once again after I informed the Prophet so a lot of what I had witnessed, he put a part of this cloak that he was wearing, that he was praying in, he put it over me

00:45:26--> 00:45:29

and then I slept on until the morning

00:45:30--> 00:45:37

until the process and woke me up in the morning saying, Come, ya know, man, get up to sleepyhead.

00:45:39--> 00:45:40

So, for the for the Huawei

00:45:43--> 00:45:44

he was telling this Tabby,

00:45:46--> 00:45:51

how their situation was, and that he needs to realize that

00:45:53--> 00:45:59

what he thinks is easier is easy to do. It's easier said than done.

00:46:01--> 00:46:01


00:46:02--> 00:46:03

hot often.

00:46:05--> 00:46:06

At Qureshi, they live

00:46:07--> 00:46:14

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wakes up in the morning, and he takes a look at the empty campground.

00:46:16--> 00:46:17

No one was left

00:46:18--> 00:46:23

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then said La Ilaha illa Allah who

00:46:24--> 00:46:29

saw the Kawada we're not sort of Abdur where has an L as

00:46:30--> 00:46:31

there is

00:46:32--> 00:46:44

no one worthy of worship except Allah alone. His promise has come true. And he gave victory to his servant. And he defeated that hazard all alone.

00:46:45--> 00:46:53

And so here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was attributing the victory to Allah alone. It was ALLAH who did all of this.

00:46:55--> 00:47:02

And this is exactly what Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds us of in the Quran.

00:47:04--> 00:47:07

So what does Allah subhana wa Tada say, inshallah to Allah?

00:47:09--> 00:47:13

Yeah, you already know the Curonian atoll? LAHIA alikhan.

00:47:14--> 00:47:19

Oh, you're gonna believe remember, Allah has fever upon you.

00:47:20--> 00:47:44

Either just concluded for ourselves, I marry one. What do you lose the lamp turn Oh ha. Okay, and what would be my town number three on when the enemy forces they came to you. So we sent against them a bitter wind and forces that you could not see. And Allah is all seeing of what you do.

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

So after Allah mentions this, he goes on to mention the difficult circumstances that the Muslims were in.

00:47:56--> 00:47:59

And the reaction of the mafia, cool, the hypocrites.

00:48:00--> 00:48:05

But all of these ads we actually covered last week

00:48:08--> 00:48:09

and so we're not going to go over them again.

00:48:11--> 00:48:17

But after Allah mentions the reaction of the McAfee poll, then Allah

00:48:18--> 00:48:20

talks about the believers

00:48:21--> 00:48:24

addressing them, so let us look at these ayat now.

00:48:25--> 00:48:36

Allah subhana wa Taala says, The locker the colonel a comfy Rasulillah he was one has an eye to lemon Can I order water will no matter where they are, water can

00:48:37--> 00:48:41

indeed in the Messenger of Allah you have an excellent example.

00:48:42--> 00:48:43

You have a rule mine,

00:48:44--> 00:48:50

for whoever has hope in Allah and the Last Day and he remembers Allah often.

00:48:53--> 00:48:56

This area is a very important area.

00:48:58--> 00:49:02

Allah is saying that we have the best example

00:49:03--> 00:49:09

in the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for us to follow. He is our role mine.

00:49:11--> 00:49:13

But this area

00:49:15--> 00:49:17

is it telling us to follow the Sunnah.

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


00:49:21--> 00:49:26

but was this ayah revealed? Because

00:49:27--> 00:49:33

what are the Muslims on that day? In those days of siege? They were not following

00:49:34--> 00:49:36

the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu and he was

00:49:38--> 00:49:40

you know, one of them wasn't using miswak

00:49:41--> 00:49:47

or one of them didn't have his job above his ankle, or he didn't have his beard out.

00:49:50--> 00:49:52

Yes, all of this is from the Sunnah.

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

And we need to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. However,

00:50:01--> 00:50:04

None of this was a reason for why this idea was revealed.

00:50:05--> 00:50:06

So why was this idea revealed?

00:50:09--> 00:50:25

It being Jared Tabari, who is the Imam of the festival room, the scholars of Tennessee, he says, Allah was representing the believers who stayed behind and did not go and join the camp that was at the trench.

00:50:26--> 00:50:32

So Allah was telling them that they should follow rasool Allah is Allah and Allah wa salam and be with him.

00:50:33--> 00:50:37

And so this was the context in which this idea was revealed.

00:50:40--> 00:50:41


00:50:42--> 00:50:48

nowadays, when people talk about the Sunnah, they talk about everything, but they neglect talking about

00:50:49--> 00:50:56

Jihad visa vie Allah as being part of the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And so,

00:50:58--> 00:51:07

following the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and his example, it needs to be taken as a complete package. Not that we pick and choose.

00:51:08--> 00:51:10

Then Allah subhanahu wa Tada says,

00:51:12--> 00:51:13

What am I mean when I

00:51:14--> 00:51:33

heard that word and Allahu wa rasuluh. Masada Allahu Rasool when as the home Illa Eman in winter Selena. When the believers saw the enemy Alliance, they said this is what Allah and His Messenger has promised us. The Promise of Allah and His Messenger has come true.

00:51:34--> 00:51:37

And this only increased them in Eman and submission.

00:51:38--> 00:51:40

And we covered this ayah last week.

00:51:41--> 00:51:42

This was the reaction of

00:51:44--> 00:51:52

the minute the believers as opposed to the Muna feel cool. Who when they saw the exam, what did they say?

00:51:53--> 00:51:59

They said the opposite. They said, Allah has lied to us, the messenger has lied to us.

00:52:01--> 00:52:06

And Allah tells us they were having doubts about the Promise of Allah

00:52:08--> 00:52:11

while the Eman of the believers it increased.

00:52:15--> 00:52:21

And said that this, what we are seeing, you know, all of these forces coming

00:52:23--> 00:52:26

to the siege to us, this is the Promise of Allah.

00:52:28--> 00:52:28


00:52:29--> 00:52:32

because ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada has told them in the Quran,

00:52:34--> 00:52:34


00:52:36--> 00:52:47

the only way for you to succeed, the only way to for you to enter Jannah is by going through difficulties and tests. So they saw this

00:52:48--> 00:52:52

as yet another test. Then Allah Subhana Allah Allah says,

00:52:53--> 00:53:06

menial mode meaning in a region and also the coma I had one rally for lindholmen Pablo, and when we know me and tell them what Victor we tell the dealer among the believers are men

00:53:07--> 00:53:11

who have proven true to what they have pledged to Allah.

00:53:13--> 00:53:15

Here Allah is praising the Sahaba or the Allah hangry.

00:53:17--> 00:53:22

That there claim to Eman was not simply lip service.

00:53:25--> 00:53:26

But rather

00:53:27--> 00:53:31

they prove true. Their claim to Iman,

00:53:32--> 00:53:40

Allah says some of them have fulfilled their pledge help by sacrificing their lives. They have fallen as shahada

00:53:41--> 00:53:43

while others are waiting their turn.

00:53:44--> 00:53:44

Allah says

00:53:46--> 00:53:55

a group of them have passed the test. They have fulfilled their pledge with Allah. The other group, they're waiting their turn.

00:53:57--> 00:54:02

Well now but then we tend to DITA and they have never changed their commitment in the least.

00:54:04--> 00:54:09

Unlike Muslims today who when they are tested by Allah, they're in that stretch to shake

00:54:10--> 00:54:15

and their commitment to Allah and to Islam. He starts to shake.

00:54:16--> 00:54:22

Allah tells us here that these men are those who do not change their word.

00:54:23--> 00:54:27

They have promised and they are entered into this pledge with Allah.

00:54:29--> 00:54:30

They are going to live

00:54:31--> 00:54:59

with it until the end. And then Allah says Leah Dizzy Allah has signed up to be super clear. Where you hide the bell Munna, Filipina insha. Allah Oh yeah, to bury him in Allah who can afford on Rahima so that Allah may reward the truthful for their truthfulness, and punish the hypocrites if He wills or turn to them in mercy. Surely Allah is the all Forgiving, the Most Merciful. This is the reward at the recompense

00:55:00--> 00:55:02

The reward for the truthful ones,

00:55:03--> 00:55:05

those who are truthful in their email

00:55:08--> 00:55:21

actually showing it you know, not simply keeping it in their hearts, but showing it by sacrificing everything that they have including their lives. Allah will reward them for their truthfulness as Allah says here. As for the morality of

00:55:23--> 00:55:31

Allah, we punish them or he may forgive them. And Allah is the all forgiving, Most Merciful. And then Allah subhanahu Attallah tells us the end result.

00:55:33--> 00:55:35

What was the end result of

00:55:36--> 00:55:48

the Battle of exactly what the law will lead ina kuffaar will be a Wii U V. Him lemmya Nanoha. And Allah draws back the disbelievers in their rage.

00:55:50--> 00:55:51

Totally empty handed.

00:55:53--> 00:55:59

What if Allah who didn't mean enough detail, and ALLAH spirit the believers from fighting?

00:56:01--> 00:56:04

This was a blessing of Allah. They didn't have to fight

00:56:07--> 00:56:09

even though the threat was imminent

00:56:12--> 00:56:19

but yeah, Allah spare them from fading. What can Allahu Korean as either for Allah is all powerful almighty.

00:56:21--> 00:56:22

So in the end,

00:56:23--> 00:56:26

the Muslims were victorious.

00:56:27--> 00:56:32

In fact, they were not just victorious. But this battle was a turning point.

00:56:34--> 00:56:40

This battle was a turning point in the hostilities between the Muslims and their enemies.

00:56:42--> 00:56:43

In the past,

00:56:44--> 00:56:50

it was always Quraysh and their allies coming and attacking the Muslims, right.

00:56:53--> 00:56:55

This was the last time that they would do that.

00:56:57--> 00:57:06

From here on, it would be always the Muslims who would be launching the attacks, and taking the fight to the enemy territory.

00:57:08--> 00:57:13

After the withdrawal of the Amazon after the left, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:57:17--> 00:57:19

I'll never resume what

00:57:20--> 00:57:27

he said From now on, we will take the fight to them, and they will not bring the fight to us.

00:57:29--> 00:57:33

And we are the ones who will go to them when a zero 11.

00:57:36--> 00:57:40

And what does history show us that that is exactly what ended up happening.

00:57:42--> 00:57:47

This was the last time that the enemies of Islam would come

00:57:49--> 00:57:52

to try and attack the Muslims on their land on their territory.

00:57:53--> 00:57:57

And from here on the the tables are turning after this battle.

00:57:59--> 00:58:03

And so in the following year, we're gonna see how the Muslims they are the ones who go out

00:58:04--> 00:58:05

and they reach

00:58:06--> 00:58:09

close to Mecca, we have a sort of health Hadiya.

00:58:11--> 00:58:18

And then we have after that the Muslims going to make and performing Umrah all of these events. We're going to be covering in sha Allah who died.

00:58:20--> 00:58:28

And so let us conclude with some of the lessons that we learned from what we have learned tonight. And the battle of

00:58:30--> 00:58:31

the first lesson

00:58:33--> 00:58:36

is learning the objectives of your enemy.

00:58:38--> 00:58:40

And dealing with each accordingly.

00:58:42--> 00:58:47

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, why did he negotiate with a lot of Han?

00:58:49--> 00:58:53

And he did not decide to negotiate with the Jews or with Koresh.

00:58:55--> 00:58:56

The answer is very simple.

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

A lot of fan had come why.

00:59:02--> 00:59:03

For money,

00:59:04--> 00:59:06

they were in it for financial gain.

00:59:08--> 00:59:08


00:59:10--> 00:59:14

that the Jews of Ben Ben or nobody from high bar.

00:59:15--> 00:59:23

And we mentioned this last week, they had gone to the fan and they had told them look, we'll give you the harvest of hybrid if you come

00:59:24--> 00:59:26

and also they were looking forward to

00:59:27--> 00:59:28

the spoils of war

00:59:29--> 00:59:33

for Medina. So these were basically it for me.

00:59:34--> 00:59:43

As for Quraysh and the Jews, they wanted to destroy Islam and the Muslims. Therefore Rasulullah sallallahu himself did not even attempt to negotiate with them.

00:59:45--> 00:59:53

So we don't deal with all of their enemies in the same way. Rather we deal with each accordingly.

00:59:55--> 00:59:56

We also see

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

another wisdom in

01:00:00--> 01:00:01

For sharing a truce with the hotter fan.

01:00:02--> 01:00:16

So here we have a unified alliance of different factions coming to fight against the Muslims. So, it is important for the leader to have Hickman wisdom

01:00:18--> 01:00:20

so, if it's possible

01:00:21--> 01:00:33

to neutralize a particular party from the enemies rather than face all of them at once then such a plan has to be part of the strategy

01:00:35--> 01:00:37

you know Wi Fi everyone outlines

01:00:40--> 01:00:44

you know, the Muslims could deal with a lot of time later. They are not our

01:00:46--> 01:00:47

prime enemy.

01:00:49--> 01:00:51

It's a we learned from this that

01:00:52--> 01:00:57

Muslims should not try to make enemies as long as it doesn't go against

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

you know, any set aesthetic principles.

01:01:03--> 01:01:04

The second lesson that we learn

01:01:06--> 01:01:12

because the Muslims through their Eman qualified in the eyes of Allah to attain victory,

01:01:14--> 01:01:15

ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada would help them.

01:01:19--> 01:01:20

And so from every angle,

01:01:22--> 01:01:24

the Muslims had no chance of winning.

01:01:26--> 01:01:28

But because they deserve to win,

01:01:30--> 01:01:31

Allah help them out.

01:01:33--> 01:01:35

When you take the steps,

01:01:37--> 01:01:39

Allah has legislated for victory.

01:01:41--> 01:01:45

Then Allah will help you even from ways unexpected.

01:01:47--> 01:01:52

So we see this in the case of Allah sending one man

01:01:53--> 01:01:59

to break the coalition and send them home in defeat. Know it maybe Mr. McDonald, the loggerhead.

01:02:04--> 01:02:10

No one would have imagined that this is how the siege would come to an end, not the Muslims, nor

01:02:12--> 01:02:12

nor their enemy.

01:02:14--> 01:02:17

But when we don't take the steps

01:02:18--> 01:02:20

for the victory of Allah,

01:02:21--> 01:02:30

then we don't qualify for Allah's help. And thus, the promise victory of Allah is delayed.

01:02:31--> 01:02:32

That doesn't mean

01:02:33--> 01:02:45

that Allah's help, and his victory is never going to come. No, because if it is a promise of Allah, that he shall give victory to his believing surveys, then that will happen with older adults.

01:02:47--> 01:02:48

But it just means

01:02:49--> 01:02:53

that maybe we this generation do not deserve it.

01:02:56--> 01:02:58

Maybe the next generation will deserve it,

01:02:59--> 01:03:00

or the one after that.

01:03:02--> 01:03:13

So we have to believe in the victory of Allah and His promise. Just because we don't see it. It doesn't mean that Allah has betrayed us.

01:03:14--> 01:03:17

But perhaps it means that we're not qualified for it.

01:03:19--> 01:03:22

As for the Muslims, in the battle there has said

01:03:23--> 01:03:29

that they did everything they could. They took all the steps for the victory of Allah.

01:03:30--> 01:03:39

From Iman, to perseverance, and patience. Taking the material means digging the trench.

01:03:40--> 01:03:43

On top of that, obeying Allah and His Messenger

01:03:45--> 01:03:50

adhering to the principles of Islam, not abandoning any part of Islam.

01:03:51--> 01:03:52

Unlike the Muslims today

01:03:56--> 01:03:58

the third lesson that we learned

01:04:00--> 01:04:03

is the importance of following orders and discipline.

01:04:04--> 01:04:10

It's also the law he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had told her they follow the law right? Not to cause any trouble.

01:04:13--> 01:04:18

And so Khalifa could have easily have shot and killed Abu Sufyan.

01:04:20--> 01:04:24

Oh, Sophia, and it's not just any soldier in the army, this is their leader.

01:04:28--> 01:04:29

And although he wanted to do that,

01:04:31--> 01:04:31

he did it.

01:04:32--> 01:04:47

Why because of the instructions that he was given by Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we all know the importance of following instructions, especially the instructions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

01:04:49--> 01:04:52

and also the leader in general.

01:04:54--> 01:04:57

So all of this is part of discipline.

01:04:59--> 01:04:59

When you want to do

01:05:00--> 01:05:03

What your enough's wants to do? Because,

01:05:04--> 01:05:06

you know, you desire to do something,

01:05:08--> 01:05:10

but you bring it under control,

01:05:11--> 01:05:15

not to do it. Why? Because it goes against what you were commanded to do.

01:05:17--> 01:05:21

You know, this is the first jihad.

01:05:23--> 01:05:28

This is the first How did you handle the neffs conquering universe

01:05:30--> 01:05:31

to comply with

01:05:32--> 01:05:33

what is right,

01:05:34--> 01:05:37

and to comply with instructions that you're given by your leader.

01:05:39--> 01:05:46

And we saw what happened when the Muslims feel to follow the instructions of Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam when

01:05:47--> 01:05:48

in the Battle of it.

01:05:51--> 01:05:52


01:05:54--> 01:05:58

among the lessons that we learn is not having overconfidence in your event.

01:06:01--> 01:06:06

And so it's easy to speak with things are all well and good.

01:06:08--> 01:06:11

That man who was questioning belief on the one hand,

01:06:14--> 01:06:16

here's, here's an example of this.

01:06:17--> 01:06:18


01:06:19--> 01:06:20

this 33

01:06:22--> 01:06:23

He was living

01:06:24--> 01:06:26

in an era when Islam was booming,

01:06:29--> 01:06:46

in times of prosperity, when Islam was spreading east and west, and all this vast territory, the Roman Empire, the Persian Empire, was all falling in the hands of the Muslims. And all this wealth was coming.

01:06:49--> 01:06:50

How did all that happen?

01:06:52--> 01:06:54

It was the Sahaba are the Allahu Allah

01:06:55--> 01:07:00

who passed Islam on to this next generation that have been in

01:07:01--> 01:07:07

it. So now the tabby rune, they are seeing the fruits of the hard work of

01:07:08--> 01:07:18

the first generation. So how about on the one we're hiring, but this man, he thought that his generation would have done more would have done better.

01:07:19--> 01:07:28

And so this Tabori, he did not understand that the Sahaba he doesn't understand the sacrifices that they had taken.

01:07:29--> 01:07:33

That they had fought against their own fathers and their own brothers

01:07:34--> 01:07:35

that they had,

01:07:36--> 01:07:38

you know, left their land behind,

01:07:39--> 01:07:41

and their property and their wealth.

01:07:42--> 01:07:49

And they give up their wealth and their lives. For Allah and His Messenger, they sacrifice a lot.

01:07:50--> 01:07:55

And so what we learned from all of this is, don't be overconfident

01:07:56--> 01:07:57

about yourself.

01:07:58--> 01:08:01

Because if you were in their shoes,

01:08:02--> 01:08:03

you will probably run away.

01:08:08--> 01:08:13

And so when we read the stories of the Sahaba, or the later generations after them,

01:08:15--> 01:08:18

or if we were to simply hear about what's going on

01:08:19--> 01:08:20

you even currently

01:08:23--> 01:08:30

to, for example, our brothers and sisters in Palestine, and we think that if we were there, we would

01:08:31--> 01:08:32

you know,

01:08:33--> 01:08:37

show courage and we would fight and we will do this and we will do that

01:08:43--> 01:08:46

we should never wish for Allah to put us in a test.

01:08:48--> 01:08:53

And we should always understand that the sacrifices made by others.

01:08:55--> 01:08:57

We have to recognize the sacrifices

01:08:59--> 01:09:03

and ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada to reward them greatly.

01:09:05--> 01:09:10

And that's why Allah subhana wa Tada praises the Companions around the world, when we look around the way he does.

01:09:12--> 01:09:22

They are the best of generations, no other generation after them. Even the very next generation after them will never come near to them.

01:09:24--> 01:09:26

Even though that next generation, the prompts are some praise.

01:09:28--> 01:09:30

When he said hi, you could only call me

01:09:31--> 01:09:36

the best of generations is my generation. So melody nya Luna home, then those who come after.

01:09:37--> 01:09:47

So how about us, you know 1400 years later? And so this is why we should always ask Allah Subhana Allah to keep us for

01:09:48--> 01:09:53

and take the steps to make sure that if we are put to the test

01:09:54--> 01:09:55

that we remain for,

01:09:57--> 01:09:59

and always make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala

01:10:00--> 01:10:09

If you can liberal pollute the big can be hygienic Oh Turner of the hearts keep my heart firm upon your D

01:10:11--> 01:10:12

you know some of us

01:10:14--> 01:10:17

we are put to the test

01:10:19--> 01:10:22

regarding small things and we can't handling

01:10:24--> 01:10:26

so how about the greater matters like these

01:10:28--> 01:10:33

that were mentioned by the Stanberry and by who they are on the way

01:10:36--> 01:10:50

so with that we come to the end of tonight's session so political Laden will be handing ahead we'll let you learn to stop if you don't want to relate also Leila Salim hadn't been hammered will also be married with Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
