Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen

00:00:06 --> 00:00:14

wa Salatu was Salam ala atta Manuel a Kamala and Johanna Pillai January while early he was so happy woman he

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

was thinking of the Suniti he did love them and giving them a certain winter I know the Malim Turner was eating.

00:00:24 --> 00:00:35

What arena? I have gone water zoeken a TBI or Elina LMNOP Labelle Palin, what is it now that we're jogging I mean yesterday COVID afraid to be an owner sooner.

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

Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

00:00:42 --> 00:00:49

Last week, we completed our discussion on the battle of an exam

00:00:50 --> 00:00:54

or the Battle of HYDAC, the Battle of the Trench

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

concluding with

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

what happened to the tribe of Ben graver,

00:01:03 --> 00:01:06

the last remaining Jewish tribe in Medina.

00:01:08 --> 00:01:22

And how Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam dealt with them, because of their treachery, because of their betrayal and their treason, how they sided with their enemy, and especially at a time of war.

00:01:24 --> 00:01:25

And we looked at

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

how the Muslims laid siege to their forts.

00:01:32 --> 00:01:34

And then how, in the end

00:01:36 --> 00:01:57

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave the privilege to decide their fate to one of the companions. And he was sad, it'd be more as Rhodiola. Right. And we looked at, you know, his verdict. What was his judgment concerning them. And we also explained why they were given this punishment.

00:01:59 --> 00:02:02

You know, the judgment was that all of their men should be killed.

00:02:03 --> 00:02:13

Their property taken and distributed among the Muslims, and their women and their children were enslaved, a very harsh punishment, but we explained the reasons for that.

00:02:16 --> 00:02:22

Now, when the armies of the kuffaar had disbanded after the Battle of

00:02:24 --> 00:02:28

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and we mentioned this,

00:02:29 --> 00:02:32

he said, I'll earn a resume when I Aluna.

00:02:34 --> 00:02:39

When I see you lay him, now, we will attack them, and they will not attack us.

00:02:41 --> 00:03:00

And so, this marked a turning point in the history of this newly found Islamic State. For the past five years, as we have been seeing, the Muslims were engaged in a defensive battle against their enemy against Quraysh.

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

It was a defensive battle for survival.

00:03:09 --> 00:03:10

Now the tables have turned

00:03:12 --> 00:03:15

and it is now going to be whorish

00:03:16 --> 00:03:18

who are going to be battling for their survival.

00:03:21 --> 00:03:24

They are now going to be on the defensive,

00:03:25 --> 00:03:26

it will be

00:03:27 --> 00:03:29

Quraysh, who will be struggling

00:03:30 --> 00:03:31

to find a way to survive.

00:03:33 --> 00:03:40

You know, previously it was Qureshi who was on the offensive, they are the ones who came with their army to battle.

00:03:42 --> 00:03:46

And then after that, they are the ones who came to

00:03:47 --> 00:03:49

all the way to Medina, with their army.

00:03:50 --> 00:04:01

And then again, in the battle that is at the Battle of 100. Duck, they are the ones who came out to lay siege to Medina with their allies.

00:04:05 --> 00:04:08

But now, the change is not because

00:04:09 --> 00:04:11

Quraysh now have a change of heart

00:04:12 --> 00:04:23

or because they are now somehow more sympathetic of the Muslims. No, it was simply because they were exhausted.

00:04:26 --> 00:04:28

They couldn't carry on this fight anymore.

00:04:29 --> 00:04:31

The Muslims had done them

00:04:33 --> 00:04:33

in the fight.

00:04:37 --> 00:04:46

The Muslims had old done them in their patients their perseverance, your steadfastness. And courage could not keep up with them.

00:04:47 --> 00:04:50

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say

00:04:51 --> 00:04:52

a year later

00:04:54 --> 00:04:59

as we're going to come to that famous event, the event of today

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

Yeah, which is the next major event that's going to come. And that's a year after the battle that has happened. What did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam say he said, whoa to Quraysh.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:16

War has exhausted them.

00:05:17 --> 00:05:23

Whoa to Croatia war has exhausted them. And so the Muslims had tired them out.

00:05:24 --> 00:05:29

Abu Sufyan was no longer able to bring an army

00:05:30 --> 00:05:32

to attack Medina. That's it.

00:05:34 --> 00:05:35

He had done the best,

00:05:36 --> 00:05:38

you know, to the extent that he was able to,

00:05:39 --> 00:05:45

and that was the best that he was able to pull off the 10,000 strong army of the result.

00:05:46 --> 00:05:50

And what was it, it was a failure as we saw in the end,

00:05:52 --> 00:05:53

because in the end of the day,

00:05:55 --> 00:05:56

in the end of the day,

00:05:59 --> 00:06:01

ALLAH SubhanA, WA Tada was with the believers.

00:06:03 --> 00:06:12

In the end of the day, it is a loss of Hara Hua to Allah Who would give victory to the Muslims, and failure and defeat to his enemies.

00:06:14 --> 00:06:16

Sometimes giving power to the Muslims,

00:06:17 --> 00:06:18

or sending

00:06:20 --> 00:06:22

sending his own soldiers

00:06:25 --> 00:06:28

like we saw in the battle, but it was the wind,

00:06:29 --> 00:06:31

as Allah tells us, and so little,

00:06:32 --> 00:06:35

it was the wind that came in, finish them off.

00:06:36 --> 00:06:41

So with this, the Muslims ended a very difficult period

00:06:42 --> 00:06:47

of defending their mere existence and holding on to their base.

00:06:49 --> 00:06:51

You know, the initial years of Medina,

00:06:52 --> 00:06:56

these first five years as we have seen, they were years of fear.

00:06:58 --> 00:07:02

They were years of, you know, worry,

00:07:03 --> 00:07:05

years of insecurity.

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

We shouldn't think that just because the Muslims, we may, you know, they made hijra to Medina, yes, they escaped the persecution of Netcat. But they were not flourishing. It was not a powerful,

00:07:24 --> 00:07:26

secure Islamic State.

00:07:28 --> 00:07:29

It was

00:07:30 --> 00:07:35

very, very difficult years, you know, you had Quraysh from one side.

00:07:36 --> 00:07:42

And then you have the Jews from the other side. And then you have the munafo

00:07:43 --> 00:07:44

from the third side.

00:07:47 --> 00:07:52

And not only that, but then you had the bed wings, and the other tribes around and outside of Medina.

00:07:53 --> 00:07:56

And so it was very difficult. And that's why the Sahaba

00:07:57 --> 00:08:06

the Companions, they would say that we would sleep with our arms next to us with our weapons next to us. They were safe

00:08:07 --> 00:08:10

in their own in their own hometown.

00:08:14 --> 00:08:16

So these five years were difficult, however,

00:08:18 --> 00:08:19

the Muslims held on

00:08:21 --> 00:08:22

and they

00:08:25 --> 00:08:26

persevere to patient.

00:08:28 --> 00:08:33

And this patience, and this perseverance would know it would pay off.

00:08:35 --> 00:08:37

And from here onwards,

00:08:39 --> 00:08:48

the tables will turn and the Muslims would go from defensive jihad to the offensive jihad.

00:08:49 --> 00:09:09

And so the next five years of the Ceylon as we're gonna see, the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remember, he was in Medina for a period of 10 years. The first five, as we have seen, it was basically fending off attacks.

00:09:11 --> 00:09:18

And it was a defensive jihad, but now we're gonna see how from here on it's going to be an offensive jihad, the Muslims are going to,

00:09:19 --> 00:09:21

we're going to see in the next five years,

00:09:22 --> 00:09:24

these years are going to be years of expansion.

00:09:28 --> 00:09:50

And there's going to be exponential growth for Islam. And we're going to see a lot of important events that are going to happen in these remaining years of the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And so, what we'll do is we'll start with some events that had happened

00:09:51 --> 00:09:56

between the Battle of Alaska and

00:09:58 --> 00:09:59

Saudi Arabia.

00:10:01 --> 00:10:02

The pledge

00:10:03 --> 00:10:07

and the peace treaty and who they be.

00:10:09 --> 00:10:22

And all of these events. We're in the fifth year, or the sixth year, the end of the fifth year and the rest of the sixth year of the Hijra. So

00:10:23 --> 00:10:26

the Battle of Azov took place at the end of the fifth year.

00:10:28 --> 00:10:29

And now we're going to see

00:10:30 --> 00:10:35

what happens for the next year. Because so, good idea happens at the end of the sixth year.

00:10:38 --> 00:10:44

And most of these events that we're going to be looking at, were various military expeditions,

00:10:45 --> 00:10:51

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, sent out to various locations in Arabia.

00:10:53 --> 00:10:59

And so after the Battle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would continue to send expeditions.

00:11:02 --> 00:11:03


00:11:04 --> 00:11:07

this was similar to the expeditions that he sent

00:11:09 --> 00:11:10

prior to the Battle of data.

00:11:13 --> 00:11:15

And after the Battle of better

00:11:17 --> 00:11:19

and after the battle was offered,

00:11:21 --> 00:11:32

right, so between the major wars and battles, there were these Saraya these expeditions that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent out.

00:11:34 --> 00:11:38

And the whole purpose of that was to counter any threats to the Muslims.

00:11:40 --> 00:11:42

And the safety of Medina,

00:11:43 --> 00:11:59

because there was a real threat from various crimes around Arabia, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would have his intelligence to go and find out what's happening, to bring intelligence information

00:12:01 --> 00:12:05

regarding any threats, and then he would send out

00:12:06 --> 00:12:11

groups are companions to go and quell those those threats and attack those tribes.

00:12:14 --> 00:12:21

And so, we'll go through these, some of these expeditions will go through today, and the remaining will go through next week and show all of them.

00:12:23 --> 00:12:26

And so the first expedition that we look at

00:12:27 --> 00:12:30

is the study of Mohammed even Muslim or the Allah.

00:12:34 --> 00:12:37

It's a one of these tribes that poses a threat

00:12:39 --> 00:12:42

to the Muslims was

00:12:43 --> 00:12:45

a tribal from Nigeria,

00:12:46 --> 00:12:48

east of El Medina.

00:12:50 --> 00:12:52

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent

00:12:53 --> 00:12:57

the companion Muhammad had been Muslim around the world right?

00:12:58 --> 00:13:03

With some 30 men to attack the tribe of Benny bunker,

00:13:05 --> 00:13:09

who inhabited an area known as a local park.

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

And this was in the

00:13:14 --> 00:13:16

this was on the 10th of Muharram.

00:13:17 --> 00:13:19

Of the sixth year of the Hitler.

00:13:20 --> 00:13:25

So shortly after the Battle of bellezza, so they proceeded

00:13:27 --> 00:13:28

to destroy

00:13:29 --> 00:13:32

hiding in the day, and moving at night.

00:13:34 --> 00:13:42

So the whole thing was to catch them by surprise, so that they don't know that they're coming. And that's exactly what happened.

00:13:43 --> 00:13:45

When the Muslims reach there,

00:13:46 --> 00:13:50

they caught their enemy by surprise. They killed 10 of them,

00:13:51 --> 00:13:52

and the rest fled.

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

And the Muslims also captured

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

they captured hundreds of sheep and goats.

00:14:03 --> 00:14:05

And they took all of this back with them

00:14:06 --> 00:14:07

to and Medina.

00:14:08 --> 00:14:09

Now on their way back.

00:14:11 --> 00:14:13

They come across a man by the name of

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

Sumana, Ben

00:14:18 --> 00:14:19

and Hanafy.

00:14:20 --> 00:14:23

And he was the chief of the tribe of Ben Hanifa.

00:14:25 --> 00:14:29

Ben Khalifa was one of the main tribes

00:14:30 --> 00:14:32

in next Eliana.

00:14:34 --> 00:14:36

So, the Muslims captured him

00:14:38 --> 00:14:48

and they decided to take him back to Medina. But they didn't know who he was. They didn't realize that this is the leader of a very influential tribe.

00:14:50 --> 00:14:52

So they brought him to Medina.

00:14:53 --> 00:14:55

And they took him into the masjid and they tied him

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

to one of the pillars.

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

What happens next?

00:15:04 --> 00:15:11

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes and sees him and this hadith in Bukhari and Muslim

00:15:14 --> 00:15:17

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam enters and he sees to mana.

00:15:19 --> 00:15:21

And by now he realizes who he is.

00:15:22 --> 00:15:26

And so he asks him, oh, Samana, what do you think?

00:15:28 --> 00:15:30

So So Mama replied,

00:15:32 --> 00:15:33

Mohamed, I have

00:15:34 --> 00:15:36

a good opinion of you.

00:15:37 --> 00:15:38

If you kill me,

00:15:39 --> 00:15:42

you will kill a person who has spilt blood.

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

You know, I'm,

00:15:45 --> 00:15:49

I'm not innocent. I'm a guilty man.

00:15:50 --> 00:15:56

But if you do me a favor, you will do a favor to a grateful person. I'll be grateful to you.

00:15:57 --> 00:16:02

If you want wealth, Ask and you will get whatever you ask for.

00:16:03 --> 00:16:05

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:16:06 --> 00:16:09

he left him in this condition for two days.

00:16:11 --> 00:16:13

And then he came again.

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

And he asked him

00:16:17 --> 00:16:18

also mama,

00:16:19 --> 00:16:20

what do you think?

00:16:22 --> 00:16:29

So So Mama replied, with the same words, that he had said the first time.

00:16:32 --> 00:16:34

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left him

00:16:36 --> 00:16:42

and then he came back a third time. And he asked him again, also mana. What do you think?

00:16:45 --> 00:16:48

Basically, what was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam doing here?

00:16:51 --> 00:16:53

He was asking him, what do you think about Islam

00:16:55 --> 00:16:56

and accept Islam?

00:16:59 --> 00:17:02

So again, Suma replied with the same words

00:17:04 --> 00:17:06

that he replied with the first time.

00:17:08 --> 00:17:10

So after the third time

00:17:14 --> 00:17:21

to mana, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the Companions, set him free. Let him go.

00:17:23 --> 00:17:25

So sunnah he goes,

00:17:26 --> 00:17:32

and he says, I went to a nearby palm Grove, near domestic.

00:17:35 --> 00:17:37

I showered I took a bath.

00:17:38 --> 00:17:43

And then I came back to the masjid. And I entered, and I said my Shahada.

00:17:45 --> 00:17:49

And then I said, Oh Muhammad, by Allah.

00:17:50 --> 00:18:00

There was no face on the earth, more hateful to me than your face. But now your face has become the most dearest of offices to me.

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

By Allah, there was no religion more hateful to me than your religion. But now your religion has become the dearest of all religions to me. By Allah, there was no city, more hateful to me than your city.

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

But now your city has become the dearest of all cities to me.

00:18:24 --> 00:18:31

And then he said, Your men, they captured me while I was on my way for camera to Mecca.

00:18:33 --> 00:18:34

So now what should I do?

00:18:36 --> 00:18:39

So Rasul Allah, he's sort of a logger, how do you alayhi wa sallam told him continue

00:18:41 --> 00:18:45

as long as that is why you left home then continue, go for Umrah.

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


00:18:50 --> 00:19:02

Sumana he does that. And when he reaches Mecca, somebody comes to him and says, because he's coming from Medina. So someone has Mecca, he comes in and says, Have you changed your religion?

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

So to mama, he said, No, but rather I have embraced Islam with the Messenger of Allah. And then he said, By Allah, you will not get a single grain of wheat from Ghana, from Nigeria, until permission is given by the messenger of allah sallallahu.

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

So this shows us

00:19:26 --> 00:19:35

the strength of his Eman and how he was willing to boycott the enemies of Islam.

00:19:37 --> 00:19:41

And he said not a single grain of our wheat will reach him.

00:19:43 --> 00:19:45

And this really affected their economy.

00:19:47 --> 00:19:53

This boycott, it affected their economy to the point where they came begging to mana

00:19:55 --> 00:20:00

or rather they came to Medina they came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because

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

What a two man essay. He said, I will not let a single grain of wheat reach except with the permission of Rasulullah and salsa. So they went through the process Solomon said,

00:20:11 --> 00:20:19

you know, we are your relatives, you know, don't, don't do this to us because they were about to be in a drought of having

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

was really affecting them. And eventually the promises

00:20:26 --> 00:20:28

he gave permission to to man.

00:20:32 --> 00:20:42

So this is the story of the expedition of embodiment mislim out of the allaahu how we move on after that to the expedition of the inheritor, or the Allahu

00:20:45 --> 00:20:48

Indra murder and ruler of the sixth year

00:20:50 --> 00:21:07

of the Hijra Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent is a inheritor with 170 men to intercept, a caravan of Quraysh that was coming back to Mecca from a sham from Syria.

00:21:10 --> 00:21:12

Now Quraysh

00:21:13 --> 00:21:19

from their previous experience with the Muslims, they will not try to come close to mediate

00:21:20 --> 00:21:27

because every time they did that, they were raided, their caravans were raided. So they chose a route along the sea.

00:21:29 --> 00:21:32

And Word reached the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:21:33 --> 00:21:34

And so he sent

00:21:36 --> 00:21:56

these companions under the leadership of Zaid inheritor to attack this caravan in interoceptive. And so they reached an area known as LRH, which is a town along the coastline, some four nights travel from Medina, and the attack was successful.

00:21:58 --> 00:22:15

The Muslims, they launched a very sudden attack, without the enemy noticing. And the caravan, the people of the caravan and their guards were not able to fight back. And so they left all of their belongings, and they fled.

00:22:16 --> 00:22:36

So they either on the other hand, he took hold of all the load, and the merchandise of the caravan, which included a lot of silver that belonged to Sophie, that belonged to someone in omega, one of the leaders of correction.

00:22:37 --> 00:22:40

And they also captured a few prisoners.

00:22:43 --> 00:22:44

And guess who

00:22:45 --> 00:22:47

is among these prisoners?

00:22:48 --> 00:22:51

Ebola was even Revere,

00:22:53 --> 00:23:01

who is or was the husband of sanem, the daughter of Rasulullah sallallahu.

00:23:03 --> 00:23:09

And we mentioned something about him previously. He was caught in the Battle of devil

00:23:11 --> 00:23:13

and he was released.

00:23:14 --> 00:23:15

He was released

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

by the fever of Xena, Xena but on the one behind her head migrated from Mecca to

00:23:24 --> 00:23:26

Medina, her husband remained anonymous.

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

And this is him.

00:23:29 --> 00:23:30


00:23:31 --> 00:23:37

when they reached at Medina opalhouse sought the protection of his wife, Xena,

00:23:38 --> 00:23:45

which she granted she said You are undermined protection and Rasul Allah has all Salam respected it.

00:23:46 --> 00:23:47


00:23:48 --> 00:23:57

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave him his belongings and also some other merchandise of Quraysh and he let him free.

00:23:59 --> 00:24:02

So he allowed him to safely return to Mecca.

00:24:04 --> 00:24:05

Now when he reached Mecca,

00:24:07 --> 00:24:09

he gave everyone their belongings

00:24:11 --> 00:24:15

and then he announced that I have become a Muslim.

00:24:17 --> 00:24:27

He said, I have become a Muslim. But then he added, he said, I would have become a Muslim back in Medina,

00:24:28 --> 00:24:37

with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but I had feared that you would think that I would only do that to rob you of your

00:24:39 --> 00:24:40

of your possessions.

00:24:41 --> 00:24:45

Meaning I didn't accept Islam and stay back in Medina.

00:24:47 --> 00:24:59

Because then you would have thought that you know I did this to keep your positions instead I have come all the way back to Mecca, giving you your possessions and your belongings. And now I'm going back to Medina.

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

That's exactly what he did. He returned back to Medina and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave him back his wife, Xena, or the Aloha,

00:25:12 --> 00:25:13

however, with a new Nick,

00:25:14 --> 00:25:15


00:25:17 --> 00:25:21

you know, the ruling in Islam is that when

00:25:23 --> 00:25:33

a Muslim is under a cafe that invalidates them, okay. And so they had a new marriage.

00:25:35 --> 00:25:39

After that we have this idea of Adorama and keep an eye out for all your work right.

00:25:41 --> 00:25:44

And this was to a location that the Muslims had previously

00:25:46 --> 00:25:46

gone to.

00:25:48 --> 00:25:56

We previously covered the reservoir that Rasul Allah, he saw a loggerhead he was an LED to do an agenda.

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

And that was right before the Battle of zap.

00:26:01 --> 00:26:06

And do my agenda is about 600 kilometers north of Medina.

00:26:07 --> 00:26:13

And it is a central point connecting the Arabian Peninsula to a sham.

00:26:15 --> 00:26:16

And so

00:26:18 --> 00:26:19

at that time,

00:26:21 --> 00:26:22

in that was when

00:26:24 --> 00:26:28

the Muslims caught the enemy by surprise, taking many of their cattle

00:26:29 --> 00:26:33

and returning to Medina without a fight. The prophets of salaam had

00:26:35 --> 00:26:36

participated in that.

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

But there was no fight.

00:26:40 --> 00:26:43

Now, these people, they live close to a sham,

00:26:45 --> 00:26:51

which in those days was controlled by the Romans. And the Romans were Christians.

00:26:52 --> 00:26:57

So the Arab tribes in that area, many of them had converted to Christianity.

00:26:58 --> 00:27:02

And among them was the tribal DeKalb, which

00:27:05 --> 00:27:09

basically inhabits Duma agenda. So there are Christians.

00:27:10 --> 00:27:19

So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam now he wants to invite them to Islam than being Christians. Maybe there'll be responsive.

00:27:20 --> 00:27:28

And so for this mission, He prepared an expedition of 700 men, under the leadership of Abdul Rahman, you've been out for the long run.

00:27:30 --> 00:27:33

This was in shahada and of the 60 year

00:27:34 --> 00:27:41

because all the lines are long, it was cinema called, I've been out, and he made him sit in front of him.

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

And then,

00:27:45 --> 00:27:48

the Prophet saw the one where he was sort of tied a turban to his head.

00:27:49 --> 00:27:50

And he said,

00:27:51 --> 00:27:52

set off

00:27:53 --> 00:27:55

and fight by the name of Allah.

00:27:56 --> 00:28:05

And in the Cause of Allah, fight those who disbelieve in Allah, do not be deceitful, and dishonest with anyone.

00:28:07 --> 00:28:08

Do not kill children, or when

00:28:11 --> 00:28:16

he then told underhand even health, to first present the message of Islam when you get

00:28:18 --> 00:28:22

to their chief and to the to their tribe, because they're Christians.

00:28:24 --> 00:28:31

And then if they respond positively, and they accept Islam, then marry the daughter of their chief.

00:28:33 --> 00:28:36

So that is exactly what I've done. I've already been outfitted.

00:28:38 --> 00:28:40

When he reaches Duma agenda,

00:28:41 --> 00:28:43

he starts by getting them down.

00:28:45 --> 00:28:52

Then on the third day, their leader by us both eBay and Amazon, LTL, B, he embraces Islam.

00:28:53 --> 00:28:58

And now, as a result, many hundreds of his tribe, they also

00:28:59 --> 00:29:00

embrace Islam,

00:29:01 --> 00:29:09

those who didn't, and the rationale in the mouth, he imposed Jizya on them. So Jizya is the tax

00:29:10 --> 00:29:11

that you take

00:29:13 --> 00:29:41

from those living under an Islamic state or some group. And this is taken from the Jews and the Christians al Kitab, as Allah mentions, and sort of to tell that so because these people were Christians, they were to give a Jizya if they remained a part of Christianity, then under a man even house did exactly as the Prophet saw the one that he also told him to do. He married the daughter of the leader and brought her back to Medina.

00:29:43 --> 00:29:47

After that, we have this idea of Abdullah in it.

00:29:51 --> 00:29:58

We previously spoke about the assassination of cab, Ashraf,

00:30:00 --> 00:30:01

He was a Jewish leader.

00:30:02 --> 00:30:06

He was rich. And he held a very important position among his people.

00:30:07 --> 00:30:23

And he was very eloquent, eloquent in poetry. And he used to use his poetry against Islam and the Muslims. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked, Who will get rid of Khabibulin Ashraf, because he has harmed a lot in his messenger.

00:30:24 --> 00:30:38

And so it was Mohammed had been Muslim. For the alumni who volunteered for this special operation, along with some other members of his tribe. What tribe was this?

00:30:40 --> 00:30:47

What tribe was Mohammed in Muslim and of the two tribes in Medina? We have an o 700. Raj.

00:30:48 --> 00:30:55

So he was from an outhouse, he was from an elders. So it was a house

00:30:56 --> 00:31:01

who killed CAD? Inertia. Now

00:31:03 --> 00:31:08

an arsenal Huzzah, Raj would always compete with one another.

00:31:09 --> 00:31:21

Whatever one clan would do, the other one would want to do the same. Whenever one would do something in the service of Allah and the deen of Allah, the other would feel left out.

00:31:23 --> 00:31:26

And so they will take any opportunity

00:31:27 --> 00:31:52

to compete with them and do something similar. So what was the competition about? It was about Allah and the deen of Allah, who would serve Allah better? And in this case, it was an else who had the honor of assassinating such an important person, cab bill, Ashraf, and so an Hazaragi. They did not want to feel left out.

00:31:54 --> 00:31:55

They wanted to do something.

00:31:56 --> 00:32:04

So they had a meeting. This is after the Battle of Eliza. They had a meeting and they discussed

00:32:07 --> 00:32:13

you know, what should we do? You know, our brothers from and outside they had the honor of that special operation.

00:32:15 --> 00:32:28

And so they said we have to do something similar. Let's find someone to assassinate. So they came up with the name of Salaam in LBL, who

00:32:30 --> 00:32:33

was also more commonly known as Abu raffia.

00:32:35 --> 00:32:44

They said he is a good candidate for performing such a special operation. And they presented the idea to Rasul Allah, He saw Salem, and he approved.

00:32:46 --> 00:32:50

Abdullah ibn it was the man who appointed to lead

00:32:51 --> 00:33:00

this group Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam gave him specific orders not to kill any woman or child.

00:33:01 --> 00:33:08

So they set out to infiltrate deep into the land of a hyper

00:33:09 --> 00:33:14

which was now the stronghold of who? of the Jews.

00:33:16 --> 00:33:21

Because the Jews were expelled from Medina, some went to a sham. The others went to

00:33:23 --> 00:33:23

a high bar

00:33:25 --> 00:33:27

and Obul raffia

00:33:28 --> 00:33:30

he lived in a fortress of his

00:33:31 --> 00:33:39

he wasn't living in a normal house. He was living in a palace and a fortress. So the Sahaba they reach

00:33:42 --> 00:33:43

but now how are they going to get in?

00:33:45 --> 00:33:52

So, Abdullah even antique. He plays a trick against the Jews. In the narration mentioned in Sahil Buhari.

00:33:54 --> 00:34:05

It says that the loot the Jews had lost a donkey of theirs. So they opened the gates and some men they came out to get the donkey.

00:34:06 --> 00:34:12

So I'm delighted Ben Affleck, he stood next to the wall. But he sat down

00:34:13 --> 00:34:18

and covered his face. He was acting as if he was responding to the call of nature.

00:34:21 --> 00:34:22

And this is what they would do.

00:34:23 --> 00:34:38

So in those days, they didn't have washrooms and toilets in their houses. So they would go out. So the Jews, they would leave their fortresses. They would go out far away, do their business and then come back.

00:34:40 --> 00:34:42

So what happened was

00:34:44 --> 00:34:49

they thought that Abdullah, even antique had come out from the fortress to do that.

00:34:50 --> 00:34:59

So when they had caught their donkey and they went back in, they called out to him and they said, Oh, Abdullah, oh servant of Allah, if you want to come in there.

00:35:00 --> 00:35:02

Now's the time, because we're going to close the gates.

00:35:03 --> 00:35:04


00:35:05 --> 00:35:07

I've done that even attic, he walks in.

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

Well, obviously he had his face covered so they didn't know who he was.

00:35:13 --> 00:35:21

And so the trick word. So now he was inside of their fortress, while his companions were outside.

00:35:22 --> 00:35:25

He told them to wait for him. And so now he was in

00:35:26 --> 00:35:29

and he hid inside a donkey stall.

00:35:30 --> 00:35:34

And he was observing the gatekeeper

00:35:36 --> 00:35:38

and he was watching where he puts the keys.

00:35:39 --> 00:35:47

So, Abdullah said underlayment, it he said that the man, he worked to have dinner with a burrata.

00:35:50 --> 00:35:57

And so he remained hiding until all of these men left. And now the lights were turned off. And now it's dark, it's nighttime.

00:35:59 --> 00:36:00

He says it was a very dark night.

00:36:02 --> 00:36:06

And you went to fetch the keys. And it so happened that all the keys were together,

00:36:07 --> 00:36:14

you know, all of the keys of the fortress, the outside gate, the keys of the palace of

00:36:15 --> 00:36:16

abou raffia.

00:36:17 --> 00:36:25

And inside the chambers, the rooms, he has all the keys in his hands. So he started to make his way

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

to the palace of Abu raffia. And every time he would open a door, he would lock it behind himself. Why?

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

What was the point of this?

00:36:38 --> 00:36:40

He's locking himself in.

00:36:41 --> 00:36:42

Isn't that dangerous?

00:36:45 --> 00:36:49

The purpose of it was so that

00:36:50 --> 00:36:52

when he attacks him, no one can come and help.

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


00:36:57 --> 00:37:02

when Abdullah bin Ateeq, attacks abou raffia, for sure, he's going to scream and yell for help for help.

00:37:04 --> 00:37:10

But now no one can come and help them. However, this is a double edged sword.

00:37:11 --> 00:37:30

Right? Because yes, it will prevent people from coming to help him but it would hinder his escape. Right? So anyways, this is what he did, until he makes it to the inner chamber of abou raffia. Now he is with a boo raffia in the same

00:37:32 --> 00:37:34

abou Rafi is asleep.

00:37:35 --> 00:37:36

The lights are turned off.

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

It's dark.

00:37:39 --> 00:37:41

So how is he going to find where he is?

00:37:44 --> 00:37:45

Because remember, there are also

00:37:46 --> 00:37:48

women or children whose family is there, right?

00:37:50 --> 00:37:57

And remember, what did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tell him he gave him specific instructions, not to kill a woman or a child.

00:37:59 --> 00:38:02

So until it had been it, he needs to be extremely careful.

00:38:05 --> 00:38:06

He's in this house.

00:38:07 --> 00:38:09

And he can't see anything.

00:38:10 --> 00:38:11

So what did he do?

00:38:12 --> 00:38:13

He just called up.

00:38:14 --> 00:38:16

He said, Oh, abou raffia.

00:38:17 --> 00:38:18


00:38:19 --> 00:38:21

it takes a lot of courage to do that. Right.

00:38:23 --> 00:38:31

You know, not only from his side, but also think about it. Think about how terrifying it is. For a Bourassa.

00:38:32 --> 00:38:36

You don't to hear a man calling him from inside of his own room.

00:38:37 --> 00:38:41

So under what if an antique? He's calling a profit?

00:38:42 --> 00:38:44

So Bourassa he says, Who are you?

00:38:46 --> 00:38:47

So I've already been it accent.

00:38:49 --> 00:38:52

So I struck my sword at the source of the voice.

00:38:54 --> 00:38:55

You can't see anything.

00:38:57 --> 00:38:58

He just called him.

00:38:59 --> 00:39:14

And the reason he called him is so that he knows where he is. So when he responds, he now knows this is him. And this is where he is. So he struck with the sword at the source of the voice. He says However,

00:39:15 --> 00:39:19

my blow was futile. It didn't work.

00:39:21 --> 00:39:31

Yes, he hit him. But it was not accurate enough. It didn't kill him. So what did abrasca do? You yell for help.

00:39:33 --> 00:39:34

The screen No.

00:39:36 --> 00:39:37

So what did I do? Let him

00:39:38 --> 00:39:40

look at his quick thinking.

00:39:42 --> 00:39:42

He retreated.

00:39:44 --> 00:39:48

He went back to the door. And then he came back changing his voice.

00:39:50 --> 00:39:55

And it's mentioned in the narrations that Abdullah ibn antique

00:39:57 --> 00:39:59

was chosen for this mission.

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

because he knew how to speak in their language and with their accent.

00:40:08 --> 00:40:12

And so he came back changing his voice. And he said, Abu raffia, what do you need?

00:40:14 --> 00:40:24

So he made it seem as if he was one of his own people. So abou raffia said, whoa to your mother, there's a man right here. And he has struck me with his sword.

00:40:26 --> 00:40:30

So when that happened, I'm over it when it what did he do?

00:40:31 --> 00:40:32

What did he do?

00:40:34 --> 00:40:35

He struck him again.

00:40:36 --> 00:40:38

He aimed at the source of the voice again.

00:40:40 --> 00:40:46

And again, abou Rafi called out for help. And again, Abdullah even it, he retreated to the door.

00:40:49 --> 00:40:51

I would offer calls out for help.

00:40:52 --> 00:41:00

Abdullah ibn artique says, A Bourassa. What do you need? A broth that says Woe unto your mother? There's a man right here right now. He's trying to kill me.

00:41:03 --> 00:41:09

And then on the web, and it says, this time I came to him, and he was lying on his back.

00:41:11 --> 00:41:28

He was still alive. He was not dead. He says this time, I thrust my sword into his, into his stomach until I found the bone and I cracked. What bone is he talking about? The spinal cord. You know, once you

00:41:30 --> 00:41:31

break down, that's it.

00:41:32 --> 00:41:36

It means that the person is dead. He says I heard the crack. And that's it.

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

I left.

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

He says Then I started to retreat.

00:41:45 --> 00:41:51

From one chamber to the other. He's opening the locks. And he's leaving. Now his room was

00:41:53 --> 00:41:59

upstairs on the upper level of the fortress. And there was a wooden ladder

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

that he had to climb when he went up. So now he has to come down that wouldn't matter.

00:42:06 --> 00:42:21

When he was coming down from Villa had been artique says, I came down and in my confusion or because it was extremely dark. He says I thought I had hit the last step of the ladder. But there was one more left.

00:42:22 --> 00:42:25

So he fell down and he broke his leg.

00:42:27 --> 00:42:28

He says

00:42:29 --> 00:42:33

but I tried my best to make it out.

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

And I made it out to my companions. And I told them that I have killed abou Rafi.

00:42:43 --> 00:42:45

But I believe in it.

00:42:47 --> 00:42:52

He still wanted to make sure that the mission was truly accomplished.

00:42:53 --> 00:43:00

He told his companions go back to Medina and deliver the news to rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:43:01 --> 00:43:06

while he was going to stay behind and wait until he hears the announcement

00:43:07 --> 00:43:08

of his death.

00:43:09 --> 00:43:12

You know, keep in mind, he had broken his leg.

00:43:15 --> 00:43:23

But he decided that he wants to do this. He wants to make sure that you know this mission has been accomplished.

00:43:24 --> 00:43:25

And so eventually,

00:43:26 --> 00:43:42

a boot off er says I heard his wife come to a brothel and say he is dead in the name of the God of the Jews. I'm delighted and it says And I swear I have never heard words more sweeter to my ears, candles.

00:43:45 --> 00:43:48

So this is the story of the assassination of

00:43:49 --> 00:43:51

a brothel. Now why was he killed?

00:43:52 --> 00:43:53

It did her job.

00:43:54 --> 00:44:01

He says abou raffia used to harm Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and assessed against him.

00:44:03 --> 00:44:09

And other scholars say that he was the one who used to support a lot of time.

00:44:11 --> 00:44:17

And the other Moshe Kuhn Arabs, with money to fight Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:44:18 --> 00:44:25

So his hostility was a combination of two, both verbal and financial.

00:44:29 --> 00:44:34

And so individuals like this, you target them, and you take them out.

00:44:35 --> 00:44:37

And that's exactly what sort of was all selected.

00:44:38 --> 00:44:44

And this was the second example of it. Prior to this was the assassination of Kent Ignatieff.

00:44:46 --> 00:44:54

We move on to one last set here that we can mention tonight. And that is the story of Abdullah in Rwanda, or the world right.

00:44:57 --> 00:45:00

Now, the assassination of Abu Rafi

00:45:00 --> 00:45:04

I did not relieve Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:45:06 --> 00:45:08

of the danger of the Jews of hyper.

00:45:11 --> 00:45:12

And so

00:45:13 --> 00:45:15

al you say it in Reason,

00:45:17 --> 00:45:23

was elected the new leader of the Jews of labor after a brothel.

00:45:25 --> 00:45:36

And he maintained the same good relations with a lot of fan, and these hostile tribes to the Muslims, just as a boot off your head.

00:45:38 --> 00:45:41

So he started mobilizing his men.

00:45:42 --> 00:45:44

And he went to hot often,

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

to seek their help again.

00:45:48 --> 00:45:52

He worked a lot of fun. Remember, it was a lot of fun.

00:45:54 --> 00:45:59

Who had brought 6000 of their men to participate in battle?

00:46:01 --> 00:46:09

So this new leader of the Jews, you say, in reason, he goes to hotline again, and says, Let's go.

00:46:11 --> 00:46:12

Let's finish off the Muslims.

00:46:13 --> 00:46:14

And so

00:46:16 --> 00:46:19

rasool Allah, he's sort of a wonder himself and got word

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

of this plan.

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

And so

00:46:25 --> 00:46:30

he went to Abdullah Ivanova, who was one of the leaders of 100.

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

And he sent him along with three men to high bar to gather intelligence information on how this man, as you say, can be taken by surprise and assassinated.

00:46:48 --> 00:46:54

And this was about a year after the assassination of a brothel.

00:46:57 --> 00:47:00

Now that they happen to be a Friday

00:47:01 --> 00:47:13

so Abdullah in Rwanda are the alumni. He decided to send off his companions in the morning and himself to stay behind

00:47:15 --> 00:47:20

to pray salatu Jumeirah with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then he would catch up

00:47:21 --> 00:47:33

to the group after that. So leader rasool Allah, he's a logger and he also saw him and he has some what happened I sent you on a mission. So

00:47:35 --> 00:47:55

Abdullah Abdullah has said, yes, they have gone in the morning, but I wanted to pray with you and then catch up with them. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, if you were to contribute everything on earth, you will not attain the excellence of your companions going up in the morning.

00:47:57 --> 00:48:03

So basically showing us the virtue and the excellence of leaving in the early morning.

00:48:04 --> 00:48:08

Especially when you have been given a command by the prophets of Allah it was.

00:48:10 --> 00:48:18

So anyways, when they got to high bar, the Muslims found the Jews to be extremely alert.

00:48:20 --> 00:48:24

In case there is another assassination attempt, so

00:48:26 --> 00:48:38

this group of Muslims they got that information and that intelligence and they returned to Medina. And so, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam devised a new strategy,

00:48:39 --> 00:48:47

this time, pursue Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent Abdullah roba with 30 Min open,

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

you're not undercover, not hiding. So 30

00:48:54 --> 00:48:56

Min wet with 30 camels.

00:48:57 --> 00:49:01

And they were supposed to meet this leader of the Jews, as you say

00:49:03 --> 00:49:05

and invite him to come to Medina.

00:49:06 --> 00:49:08

So when they arrived,

00:49:09 --> 00:49:12

they assured that you say that

00:49:14 --> 00:49:20

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wants to appoint you to be the ruler of your people and a fiber

00:49:21 --> 00:49:29

and that you will be treated well you don't give him a lusail in a reason, a guarantee of his safety.

00:49:30 --> 00:49:31


00:49:32 --> 00:49:33

he fell into the trap.

00:49:35 --> 00:49:41

And he got on to the horse of the sahabi Abdullah mates

00:49:43 --> 00:49:46

and the other Muslims wrote behind him.

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


00:49:50 --> 00:49:59

you have not only are you say it, but also other men of the Jews. So each one of them got on to one of the animals of

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

The companions the companion is in the front, and the Jew is behind.

00:50:05 --> 00:50:10

So when they arrived about six miles from Khyber,

00:50:11 --> 00:50:14

and you say he started to get suspicious.

00:50:16 --> 00:50:19

And he decided to change his mind.

00:50:20 --> 00:50:26

So he got off the animal that he was riding with Abdullah it needs probably a long ride.

00:50:27 --> 00:50:34

And Abdullah, even when is he noticed that you say it was going for his sword.

00:50:35 --> 00:50:40

So he rushed out him. And he hit him with a Debbie blow on his hip.

00:50:41 --> 00:50:55

And though a balloon is he attacked him before and use it as you say it could attack him. So a new sail fell wounded on the ground. But he managed to also hit on the knees, and he wounded him on his head.

00:50:57 --> 00:51:02

Eventually, they end up killing a loo, save it in reason.

00:51:04 --> 00:51:05


00:51:06 --> 00:51:11

all the other Jews were also killed. Only one he managed to escape

00:51:13 --> 00:51:14

it so this was now

00:51:15 --> 00:51:19

the second assassination of one of the leaders of,

00:51:20 --> 00:51:21

of the Jews of labor.

00:51:23 --> 00:51:33

So these are some of the expeditions that took place at this time, after the Battle of Allah Hassan. We will mention a few more next week, because

00:51:36 --> 00:51:38

it's all some lessons that we can learn from

00:51:39 --> 00:51:40

these expeditions.

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

Number one,

00:51:44 --> 00:51:49

the importance of continuously persevering steadfastness

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

and not giving up.

00:51:53 --> 00:51:55

And this is what we call them saba.

00:51:57 --> 00:52:04

You know, there's something called Southern to be patient. But there's something else called El Musab Allah.

00:52:06 --> 00:52:13

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you heard lady in the nose to be who was saw of you.

00:52:15 --> 00:52:17

What are people or you believe

00:52:18 --> 00:52:19

fear Allah

00:52:21 --> 00:52:22

and be patient

00:52:24 --> 00:52:26

is Biru means Be patient.

00:52:27 --> 00:52:28

But then what does Swaby roomin

00:52:31 --> 00:52:32


00:52:33 --> 00:52:34

it means

00:52:35 --> 00:52:39

basically, it's on that scale

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

of Arabic grammar and morphology Soph

00:52:45 --> 00:52:47

where it requires two people.

00:52:50 --> 00:52:51

Right, it requires two people.

00:52:53 --> 00:52:57

So please be patient means Be patient yourself.

00:52:58 --> 00:53:11

Be patient with Allah's commandments with his prohibitions with Allah's calamities that he afflicts you with as an individual, but saw the rule means Be patient against your enemy,

00:53:12 --> 00:53:15

against your phone, against your opponent.

00:53:17 --> 00:53:27

So being patient is one thing, but saw a video saw below is more than that. It is to outdo your opponent in patience.

00:53:28 --> 00:53:37

So as if Allah is telling us that even though you might be patient yourself, what if your enemy has more patience than you?

00:53:39 --> 00:53:47

You have to do them a patience. So here in this aisle, you have two commandments, be patient and

00:53:49 --> 00:53:59

outdo your enemy in patients and that is exactly what the Muslims had done. And now it paid off. As we mentioned,

00:54:01 --> 00:54:03

you know, after Bender

00:54:04 --> 00:54:09

and orchard and hunt duck, now it is Quraysh who will be on the defensive

00:54:11 --> 00:54:14

in you know, fighting

00:54:16 --> 00:54:22

and the Muslims had warned them all. The Muslims had won the battle of patience.

00:54:24 --> 00:54:28

When it comes to facing off against your enemy, that's it.

00:54:29 --> 00:54:32

Courage could no longer continue.

00:54:33 --> 00:54:40

They had enough as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would say later on. War has exhausted them. That's it.

00:54:43 --> 00:54:44

However here

00:54:45 --> 00:54:48

we should also note that

00:54:49 --> 00:54:52

this command of Allah to be to outdo

00:54:53 --> 00:54:58

you know your enemy impatience. We need to also apply to ourselves in our lives.

00:55:03 --> 00:55:06

So this is where we have another kind of jihad

00:55:07 --> 00:55:09

and that is the jihad against you laughs

00:55:12 --> 00:55:18

You have to constantly be patient in that struggle and that Jihad and our battle

00:55:19 --> 00:55:24

you are in a battle with your enough's, your nurses your opponent.

00:55:25 --> 00:55:29

And you have to constantly persevere patiently and not give up.

00:55:30 --> 00:55:35

And this is where most they fail. And they give up in that battle.

00:55:36 --> 00:55:38

And they're enough's outdoes them.

00:55:41 --> 00:55:45

So this is where we need to take a lesson from this. The second lesson that we learn

00:55:46 --> 00:55:50

is the compassion of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:55:52 --> 00:56:04

even with his opponents, and his enemies. There are times when we have seen how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used the sword

00:56:05 --> 00:56:12

and did not spare the lives of those who did not deserve to be pardoned and forgiven.

00:56:13 --> 00:56:16

We have seen that right? We saw in the Battle of Buddle

00:56:18 --> 00:56:22

the leaders of Quraysh they were killed, and they were thrown in the well.

00:56:25 --> 00:56:36

We have seen it in the assassinations that the Prophet sallallahu also ordered and commanded against people who deserve that the likes of Khabib International,

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

the likes of Abu raffia

00:56:40 --> 00:56:42

and aloo, say in reason.

00:56:44 --> 00:56:55

But then we see other instances of how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would spare the lives of some

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

who come and fake

00:56:58 --> 00:57:02

it. So this shows us that he sort of Loggerhead he was an was wise.

00:57:04 --> 00:57:06

And this is the meaning of Hickman.

00:57:08 --> 00:57:09


00:57:10 --> 00:57:19

It's not always using the sword. But sometimes, hikma dictates and means that you spear the lives of some.

00:57:21 --> 00:57:25

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knew exactly when and where

00:57:27 --> 00:57:33

to use the right tactic. So when he would show compassion, and pardon,

00:57:35 --> 00:57:45

and, you know, set free certain counters that were in his hand, it was with the intention of softening their hearts towards Islam.

00:57:47 --> 00:57:56

And it was usually with specific people who are leaders. Why? Because if these people accept Islam, then

00:57:57 --> 00:58:04

their followers will come and accept Islam. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:58:05 --> 00:58:19

he would hope that if I am kind of compassionate with these people, then they will accept Islam, and this will cause their people to accept Islam. And that is exactly what ended up happening.

00:58:20 --> 00:58:22

We saw this in the case of Sumana

00:58:23 --> 00:58:25

that we mentioned earlier tonight,

00:58:26 --> 00:58:29

as well as in the case of Ebola house.

00:58:31 --> 00:58:34

The wife of the husband of Xena,

00:58:36 --> 00:58:37

probably a one man,

00:58:38 --> 00:58:52

it's all these were individuals, they were leaders of their people. And the Prophet sallallahu, it was going to be easy with them. He was compassionate with them, and that soften their hearts to Islam. The third lesson that we learned

00:58:53 --> 00:58:56

is the purpose of these expeditions.

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

And how it was twofold.

00:59:02 --> 00:59:03

It was not just

00:59:04 --> 00:59:11

to wage a jihad and attack the enemy. Yes, that was one of the objectives

00:59:12 --> 00:59:26

to basically show the enemies of Islam, that the Muslims we will not tolerate messing around with us. Every time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would hear of a threat

00:59:28 --> 00:59:34

of the enemy mobilizing their forces coming to attack, he would reach them before they could

00:59:36 --> 00:59:38

before they could launch that attack.

00:59:39 --> 00:59:49

But we also found we also find that there was another objective and another purpose behind these expeditions. And that was a Darwin

00:59:52 --> 00:59:53

to give Dawa to these people.

00:59:54 --> 00:59:55

In fact,

00:59:57 --> 01:00:00

you know, the whole reason why Allah alleges

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

pleaded jihad in the first place is not for reasons.

01:00:06 --> 01:00:09

The other wars are fought by human beings.

01:00:11 --> 01:00:12

All wars that are fought

01:00:13 --> 01:00:18

by nations and civilizations throughout our history until the present

01:00:19 --> 01:00:22

are all fought for the sake of the dunya.

01:00:24 --> 01:00:25

For the sake of power

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

for the sake of

01:00:30 --> 01:00:36

you know taking over the resources of these lands, colonizing these lands, subjugating the people,

01:00:38 --> 01:00:51

enslaving their people, and so on and so forth for the sake of except for jihad. If he said he'll Allah. The only reason Allah legislated it was for spreading the deen of Allah.

01:00:52 --> 01:01:05

The only reason Allah legislated jihad is so that the deen of Allah could reach every corner of the world and reach every single human being on the face of the earth.

01:01:07 --> 01:01:10

And so, whenever you find

01:01:11 --> 01:01:17

something coming in between us, and allowing the message of Allah to reaching the people,

01:01:19 --> 01:01:20

then obviously you have to remove that.

01:01:22 --> 01:01:24

And that is going to be the powers of the world.

01:01:25 --> 01:01:26

The armies

01:01:27 --> 01:01:40

that that's why the Sahaba fought, they fought the Persians, they fought the Romans, even with their large armies. Why Why didn't they say, let's just enter into a peace agreement with these people

01:01:41 --> 01:01:42

will stay here.

01:01:43 --> 01:02:21

And, you know, leave these people alone. Why? Because they understood that Allah has entrusted us with this responsibility of allowing his Deen to spread to those people. And these people are coming in our way. So we're going to remove that barrier. So, here Rasul Allah, He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he sends out the right man, you've been home for the long run with a battalion or with weapons. So yes, they're going to fight jihad. But he gave him instruction instructions, to first call these people to slap,

01:02:22 --> 01:02:22

keep them down.

01:02:24 --> 01:02:26

And they responded positively.

01:02:28 --> 01:02:44

And we find, you know, in our Sharia, when you study the book of jihad, that is what the Muslim army is supposed to do. They first reach the enemy, and they present Islam to them.

01:02:45 --> 01:02:51

They don't just go and attack and fight No. The first thing you do is you present Islam to them.

01:02:52 --> 01:02:56

And this is we have a famous story of

01:02:57 --> 01:03:11

the Sahaba when they reached the Persian Empire. And that's what they did. They sent a delegation of the Muslims to go and meet the Persian emperor, Emperor. And he asked, What do you guys want from us.

01:03:12 --> 01:03:20

And that is what the sahabi said, he said, we have come to liberate people, to bring them out from darkness into light,

01:03:22 --> 01:03:26

to liberate them, from the man made gods that they worship,

01:03:28 --> 01:03:32

from the narrowness of the dunya, to the vastness of the dunya.

01:03:34 --> 01:03:38

And he presented Islam, and then, you know, after that, if they refuse,

01:03:39 --> 01:03:41

if they refuse, then you say,

01:03:42 --> 01:03:45

we will conquer you and you give us tax.

01:03:47 --> 01:03:49

If they refuse that, then you attack.

01:03:51 --> 01:03:54

Finally, the last lesson that we can mention,

01:03:55 --> 01:03:56


01:03:58 --> 01:03:59

the spirit

01:04:01 --> 01:04:05

of competing to serve a lot. And the deen of Allah.

01:04:06 --> 01:04:20

And OHSs. And Al Hassan would always compete with one another. Whenever one clan would do something for the service of Allah, the other clan would not want them

01:04:21 --> 01:04:23

to take that advantage alone

01:04:24 --> 01:04:34

and would try their best to do something similar. And so they had this spirit of competition. But the question is,

01:04:35 --> 01:04:36

what was it for?

01:04:38 --> 01:04:39

It wasn't for the dunya.

01:04:40 --> 01:04:45

It wasn't for who will be more successful in the dunya

01:04:47 --> 01:04:51

who would make more money who would hold a higher position

01:04:53 --> 01:04:54

as we see

01:04:57 --> 01:04:58

the competition now

01:05:00 --> 01:05:12

In the material world that we live in today, in this materialistic, capitalistic world, and the way of life, that you know, the West is promoting,

01:05:13 --> 01:05:15

where you should compete with one another

01:05:16 --> 01:05:18

for the sake of the dunya.

01:05:20 --> 01:05:25

That is not the competition that we see in the lives of the unsalted

01:05:26 --> 01:05:28

an ozone or cartilage.

01:05:29 --> 01:06:00

But rather it is, as we saw tonight, in that example that we saw, and that's not the only example there are many, many other instances where they would compete with one another. If one had the privilege of doing something, the other would find a way to have something similar all for the for the purpose for the sake of serving Allah and His messenger in the deen of Allah Subhan. What the Hydra

01:06:01 --> 01:06:15

and so with that, we come to the end of tonight's session in sha Allah Allah. Next week, we'll mention the remaining expeditions. And there was a lot that occurred in this period between

01:06:16 --> 01:06:33

the Battle of Alexa and soul, food they be so political will now be handed a shadow ally. And most of you will cower to Blue Lake wa salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad Ali was to be intimate with Salaam Alaikum
