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

We continue on

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

our discussion

00:00:55--> 00:00:59

of the zero of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

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

and we have reached after the Battle of Allah.

00:01:09--> 00:01:19

And so last week, we spoke about some of the events that took place right after the Battle of Allah, his Arab or

00:01:20--> 00:01:21

the Battle of 100.

00:01:23--> 00:01:30

And so we looked at how we have now entered a new phase, a new stage of this era

00:01:32--> 00:01:39

of how this stage, you know, the Muslims are now moving on from

00:01:41--> 00:01:44

the defensive jihad to the offensive jihad.

00:01:47--> 00:01:48

So last week, we looked at

00:01:49--> 00:01:51

a few of the military campaigns,

00:01:52--> 00:01:58

the expeditions that took place in this period right after the Battle of Eliza.

00:01:59--> 00:02:05

And we didn't mention all of them. And we said we would mention the remaining ones to date and shot a long time.

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

Now, previously, we mentioned how

00:02:13--> 00:02:20

there's a difference between what is known as he was one. And he said he Yeah.

00:02:22--> 00:02:23

And so it was one

00:02:25--> 00:02:28

is a military campaign

00:02:29--> 00:02:33

in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself part took

00:02:34--> 00:02:43

he went out with his men, whether fighting took place or not. So that is called a loved one.

00:02:45--> 00:02:46

Whereas a city Yeah.

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

is where the Prophet SAW Selim would send his companions on a military mission, and he would not participate himself.

00:02:57--> 00:03:01

And so today we look at first of all, because what,

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

Benny

00:03:06--> 00:03:07

that's what the election

00:03:11--> 00:03:14

the tribe of Benny Lohan.

00:03:15--> 00:03:18

We're the ones who, treacherously

00:03:19--> 00:03:29

ambush ambushed and killed 10 of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Surya. The expedition known as

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

arogya.

00:03:34--> 00:03:39

And we spoke about this particular military campaign after the Battle of

00:03:41--> 00:03:45

after the Battle of the hood. We covered that story.

00:03:46--> 00:03:50

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had central 10 of his companions,

00:03:52--> 00:03:54

and they were ambushed.

00:03:55--> 00:03:57

They were met with 100

00:03:58--> 00:03:59

Enemy soldiers,

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

and they were ambushed and they were killed.

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

Their leader also been stabbed, on the other hand was killed.

00:04:11--> 00:04:20

A few others were sold to coloration Mecca. Among them we mentioned was homemade Rhodiola Houhai and how

00:04:23--> 00:04:28

the men of coloration took him and crucified Him.

00:04:30--> 00:04:31

And so we mentioned that story.

00:04:33--> 00:04:38

Now since Benny Lohan we're situated deep

00:04:39--> 00:04:42

in the heart of Hejaz, on the borders of Mecca.

00:04:44--> 00:04:45

And

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

due to,

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

you know, Quraysh being very near, and the other Arab tribes were hostile to the Muslims, being in those surrounding areas, the prophets Allah

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

Walking around he was and was not able to take any action against Benny for what they had done to his companions.

00:05:08--> 00:05:09

Back then he couldn't do anything.

00:05:11--> 00:05:14

But now after the Battle of it as up

00:05:15--> 00:05:18

as mentioned, the tables have turn

00:05:19--> 00:05:21

in favor of the Muslims.

00:05:22--> 00:05:28

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw that it was now the time to take revenge

00:05:29--> 00:05:34

and seek justice for his companions were killed.

00:05:36--> 00:05:37

It's also a Muslim.

00:05:38--> 00:05:49

And we say the hood Iranian blogger I narrates that Rasul Allah, He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dispatched a force to Daniel here. And he said,

00:05:50--> 00:05:53

one man from every two should join this force.

00:05:55--> 00:06:01

Then he said to those who stayed behind, those of you who will look well after the families,

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

and the wealth

00:06:04--> 00:06:13

of those who have gone out on this expedition, will receive half of the reward of those who went to fight.

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

So here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:06:18--> 00:06:34

was mentioning the reward of looking after the family and the property and the wealth of the was that and the Mujahideen who go and fight feasable.

00:06:36--> 00:06:47

So the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam set up himself. And that's why this was referred to as a lot of what he set out himself with 200 of his companions.

00:06:48--> 00:06:51

And this was in Ruby and one of the six year

00:06:53--> 00:06:54

Ruby or one of the six year

00:06:58--> 00:07:04

so he said out, however, he made it seem as if he was heading towards Sham.

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

This was to deceive the enemy.

00:07:11--> 00:07:16

Then he suddenly changed his route towards a valley called button of Iran,

00:07:17--> 00:07:20

which was where his 10 companions were killed.

00:07:23--> 00:07:24

By now,

00:07:25--> 00:07:40

the tribal Daniel again, they got word that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was near. So they immediately fled to the nearby mountaintops out of his reach.

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

So

00:07:45--> 00:07:49

in this particular really military campaign, no, no fighting took place.

00:07:50--> 00:07:56

On his way back, rasool Allah, He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam dispatch, a group of 10 horsemen

00:07:58--> 00:08:01

to a place called Quran.

00:08:02--> 00:08:05

Allah meme, and this was close to restaurant.

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

And the restaurant is not far off from Mecca.

00:08:12--> 00:08:22

The purpose of sending these 10 men so close to Mecca, was to show Quraysh the military power of the missiles

00:08:26--> 00:08:30

and so all of these skirmishes and all of these events that we mentioned,

00:08:32--> 00:08:39

took about 14 days and then sort of what he said he was and after that, he headed back home to Medina.

00:08:41--> 00:08:42

Next, we have

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

less wet and Lada

00:08:46--> 00:08:47

let's work a little harder.

00:08:51--> 00:08:54

And so only a few nights after returning from

00:08:55--> 00:08:56

Ben ocean.

00:08:58--> 00:09:02

Some horsemen of the tribe have a lot of fan.

00:09:04--> 00:09:15

Remember, the tribe a lot of fan were the ones who accompanied Quraysh and the Jews to lay siege to Medina in the Battle of zap.

00:09:17--> 00:09:22

They provided 6000 of the 10,000 men of that order.

00:09:24--> 00:09:25

So anyways,

00:09:26--> 00:09:28

some of their horsemen

00:09:29--> 00:09:33

under the leadership of Rowena in additional fees, and

00:09:34--> 00:09:45

they launched a read on a place called Allahabad, it was called a little harder because there were many trees there. So it was like a forest area. And this was just north of Medina.

00:09:47--> 00:09:51

And they raided they raided

00:09:52--> 00:09:57

some animals some livestock, belonging to some Muslims

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

and

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

it

00:10:01--> 00:10:05

they killed one of the men, one of the Muslims.

00:10:06--> 00:10:18

In fact, even some of the camels of rasool Allah he saw something that belonged to him were hurting in this area, and they took those camels. So they killed the Muslim.

00:10:19--> 00:10:25

They stole these camels. And they also took a woman as a prisoner.

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

So the Muslim that they killed was a son of Abu Dhabi.

00:10:32--> 00:10:39

And the woman that they took with his wife, so the daughter or the daughter in law of Abu Dhabi, celebrated here on the

00:10:42--> 00:10:46

windowsill Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard about this news.

00:10:48--> 00:10:53

He said out himself with 500 of his companions.

00:10:54--> 00:10:59

So again, this is why this is referred to as a Eliza, because the promise on Sunday went out himself.

00:11:00--> 00:11:01

However,

00:11:02--> 00:11:05

before he was able to catch up to them,

00:11:06--> 00:11:10

there was one companion once a happy,

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

who single handedly challenge these men, and they lead their escape before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam arrived on the scene.

00:11:23--> 00:11:24

Who is this companion?

00:11:26--> 00:11:30

It was Selenite YBNL Aqua Pro the Allah Hi.

00:11:32--> 00:11:37

He was a companion known for his athletic skills

00:11:38--> 00:11:39

for his speed

00:11:40--> 00:11:41

for his archery.

00:11:43--> 00:11:51

And so the day of that raid, he happened to be in the area with one of the servants of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam robber,

00:11:52--> 00:11:57

who is taking care of the camels of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam that these men had stolen.

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

So let's hear the story.

00:12:03--> 00:12:05

From selama ignor Acquah himself

00:12:07--> 00:12:10

as we read it in Sahih, Muslim,

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

celebrated Green Aqua he says, after he saw what happened.

00:12:17--> 00:12:18

He says I said to rubber

00:12:20--> 00:12:31

ride this horse and take it to pull her in obey the law and inform rasool Allah He said the longer it will sell them that the machinery Kuhn has made away with his camels.

00:12:33--> 00:12:42

He says Then I stood on a hill and I turned my face towards Medina. And I showed it three times, while Salah ha

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

while salah, ha he's like

00:12:46--> 00:12:47

sounding

00:12:48--> 00:12:50

the sirens,

00:12:51--> 00:12:52

sounding the alarm.

00:12:54--> 00:12:55

It's asking for help.

00:12:57--> 00:13:11

He says then I settled in pursuit of these criminals, shooting them with arrows and seeing this line of poetry and YBNL Akua leiomyoma rota.

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

I am the son of an acquirer and today is the Day of Defeat of these mean an evil man.

00:13:23--> 00:13:31

He says I would overtake a man from them. I would shoot an arrow at him that would reach his shoulder. And then I would say, take it.

00:13:33--> 00:13:39

And then same, the same line of poetry, and acqua will Yom Yom Maroubra. He says,

00:13:41--> 00:13:53

By Allah I continued shooting at them and their animals. Whenever a horseman turned on me, I would come to a tree and hide myself sitting behind the tree.

00:13:54--> 00:13:57

Then I would shoot at him and injure his horse.

00:13:59--> 00:14:02

He says At last they entered a neural mountain pass.

00:14:04--> 00:14:11

I then ascended that mountain, and went up that mountain, and I held them that day throwing stones at them.

00:14:12--> 00:14:23

Then I continued to chase them in this way, until I got all the camels of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam released from their hands, and no camel was left with them.

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

They left me

00:14:28--> 00:14:28

then I follow them.

00:14:30--> 00:14:50

Look at his courage and his bravery, even though he got what they had stolen, but he was still chasing after them. He says I follow them shooting at them continuously until they dropped more than 30 of their cloaks and 30 of their spears, lightening their burden

00:14:51--> 00:14:52

because

00:14:54--> 00:14:55

they're trying to run away

00:14:57--> 00:14:58

but he's faster than them

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

and they have a lot with them. So they tried to lighten their burden so that they could quickly escape.

00:15:08--> 00:15:08

He says

00:15:10--> 00:15:23

on everything that they dropped, I pleased to mark you know, by putting a stone there, so that when Rasul Allah, He saw Selim comes and his companions, they would recognize them, that is his booty left behind by the enemy.

00:15:24--> 00:15:30

He says, They then went on until they came to a narrow valley

00:15:31--> 00:15:38

when so and so son of badger Alpha Zarya joined them. So one of their reinforcements came.

00:15:39--> 00:15:43

Now they sat down to have their breakfast.

00:15:44--> 00:15:52

And I sat on top of a rock. So this man who came reinforcement, he asked them, Who is this man who I'm seeing?

00:15:54--> 00:15:59

They said, This man, he has been chasing us, he's been harassing us.

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

By God, He has not left us since the morning. He has been continuously shooting at us until he's taken everything from our hands.

00:16:09--> 00:16:11

So he said, This man, he said,

00:16:12--> 00:16:14

four of you should make a Dasha him and kill him.

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

So four of them, they started to climb the mountain towards me.

00:16:21--> 00:16:26

When it became possible for me now to talk with them. I said, Do you recognize me?

00:16:27--> 00:16:28

They said, No, who are you?

00:16:29--> 00:16:30

He said,

00:16:31--> 00:16:33

Better. selama YBNL Acquah.

00:16:34--> 00:16:44

I am Selim and the son of a LaQua by the one who has honored the face of Mohammed, I can kill any of you that I like, but none of you will be able to kill me.

00:16:46--> 00:16:50

So one of them said, You know what, I think he's right. I think we should leave.

00:16:51--> 00:17:04

So they went back down. He says I did not move from my position. Until I saw the Horsemen of Rasulullah sallallahu earlier send them who came riding through the trees.

00:17:05--> 00:17:08

The first of them was sad.

00:17:09--> 00:17:15

Behind him was Abu Qatada alone Saudi. And behind him was a cadet PBLs with Al kindI

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

I caught hold of the reign of Graham's horse.

00:17:23--> 00:17:27

And these criminals, these raiders, they ran away.

00:17:28--> 00:17:29

So I said to

00:17:31--> 00:17:37

guard yourself against them. Until Rasulullah saw Selma his companion is joining.

00:17:39--> 00:17:41

So he was basically saying,

00:17:42--> 00:18:01

you stay here. And let me go and chase these people with the reverse. So affirm, he said, sentiment, if you believe in Allah and the day of judgment, and if you know that Jana is help is real, and the Hellfire is real, then you should not stand between me and the shahada feasibility.

00:18:03--> 00:18:08

Don't stand between me and having this opportunity to die if he said he'd Allah

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

selama he says, so I let him go.

00:18:13--> 00:18:14

So

00:18:15--> 00:18:23

he went, and he faced off against the leader of the enemy, alpha Zary. So the two men in combat,

00:18:24--> 00:18:33

have come he injured his horse, but Elfi sorry, he struck him. He managed to kill

00:18:34--> 00:18:35

Robbie along the way.

00:18:36--> 00:18:38

And then he took his horse.

00:18:39--> 00:18:43

So his horse is now in the hands of the editor.

00:18:44--> 00:18:46

So Abu Qatada,

00:18:47--> 00:18:55

who was one of the top Horsemen of Rasulullah, sallAllahu wasallam. He then went after alpha.

00:18:56--> 00:18:57

And

00:18:59--> 00:19:04

the two fought and Abu Qatada around the world man was able to kill him with his spear

00:19:06--> 00:19:15

settlement all day long. And he goes on to say, by the one who honored the face of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. I then follow them running on my feet

00:19:16--> 00:19:28

so fast that I couldn't see behind me the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, nor any dust raised by their horses. I follow them until before sunset.

00:19:30--> 00:19:31

So imagine

00:19:32--> 00:19:36

selamat acqua since the morning until sunset,

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

he's just chasing after these people. He says he's running on his feet.

00:19:43--> 00:19:46

He says until they reached a valley which had a spring of water,

00:19:47--> 00:19:56

which was called zoo correct. And that's why this event is also known as was what the current

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

he says they stopped there so that they could

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

Have a drink of water. They were thirsty. But they saw me running towards them by turning them out of the valley before they could drink even a drop of its water.

00:20:10--> 00:20:36

They then left the valley and ran down a slope. I ran behind them. I overtook a man from them. I shot him with an arrow through the shoulder brain blade. And I said, take this. And it's an aqua, only only own robot, I am the son of aqua. And today is the day of annihilation for the people who are evil and cruel.

00:20:38--> 00:20:41

So the man who was wounded?

00:20:43--> 00:20:44

He said

00:20:46--> 00:20:47

who are you?

00:20:48--> 00:20:51

Are you the same Aqua who has been chasing us since the morning?

00:20:53--> 00:20:57

He said yes. Oh enemy of yourself. I am the same.

00:21:00--> 00:21:02

So these people sell tomorrow the one who

00:21:04--> 00:21:06

had driven them crazy.

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

They left two horses

00:21:11--> 00:21:19

dead, dead tired. On the hill, they just left two horses. And just you know flip.

00:21:20--> 00:21:29

He says and I came dragging them these two horses. I then came dragging them to Rasulullah sallallahu it was it.

00:21:32--> 00:21:53

He says I am your Rhodiola who who had with him a container having some milk with water. And another container with water I made will do with the water and I drank the milk. Then I came through school of law he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while he was at the springs of this water.

00:21:54--> 00:21:55

If he correct

00:21:56--> 00:22:03

and he says the Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had captured the camels

00:22:04--> 00:22:09

and everything else that selama had, you know, taken from the enemy

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

and

00:22:13--> 00:22:28

beaten Rhodiola who has slaughtered a camel from the camels that I had seized from the people and was roasting its liver and it's hump for the messenger of allah sallallahu it was, then I came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I said, be honest with Allah.

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

Let me choose from our people

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

100 men

00:22:35--> 00:22:41

and I will chase down those men and I will finish them all today. So that

00:22:43--> 00:22:48

they are not even able to convey the news of what happened to the to their people.

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

I mean, look at

00:22:54--> 00:23:00

look at his resilience and his determination. After an entire day.

00:23:01--> 00:23:29

You know, he's still not tired, and he wants to continue. So when I said this, rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam smiled so much, that his molar teeth could be seen in the light of the fire and he said, selama Do you think you could do all of this? I said yes, by the one who has honored you. He said, now they have reached the land of water fan, where they are being honored. So that's

00:23:30--> 00:23:33

what you were able to do was sufficient.

00:23:34--> 00:23:45

When he was mourning, because Sula, he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, our best horseman today is Abu Qatada. And our best footman today is a seller.

00:23:49--> 00:23:52

And when it comes to dividing

00:23:54--> 00:23:55

the spoils of war.

00:23:58--> 00:24:01

Basically, the way it goes is that there is

00:24:03--> 00:24:08

two shares for the horsemen and one share for the one who fights on his feet.

00:24:10--> 00:24:16

Salah maravilla Han says, rasool Allah, He said Allahu Allah alayhi wa sallam gave me two shares of the booty.

00:24:17--> 00:24:26

He was a foot soldier. Right? But and he deserves one share right? But the price of salaam gave him two.

00:24:27--> 00:24:34

He says the share meant for the horseman and the share meant for the footman, he combined both of them for

00:24:36--> 00:24:43

so this was the story as narrated by selama Aqua Robbie.

00:24:46--> 00:24:48

What happened to the woman

00:24:49--> 00:24:50

who was taken as a prisoner?

00:24:52--> 00:24:57

She managed to escape on her own before the Muslims had arrived.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

And so

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

She was able to take one of the camels

00:25:03--> 00:25:04

that they had stolen.

00:25:05--> 00:25:14

And when she took off with the camel, she made another vow that if Allah saved her, she would slaughter this cabin.

00:25:16--> 00:25:19

The only problem was, that is Campbell.

00:25:20--> 00:25:21

Who did it belong to?

00:25:22--> 00:25:51

To Rasul Allah is on site, right? It didn't belong to her. So later when she wanted to fulfill her vow, she went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him, the Prophet sallallahu manual sort of smiled and said, a very bad way to compensate it meaning to compensate this towel, meaning this candle helped you to escape. And now you want to compensate it by killing it. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

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

No vow, No, neither

00:25:55--> 00:25:57

should be fulfilled,

00:25:58--> 00:26:03

should be carried out when it involves the disobedience of Allah

00:26:04--> 00:26:05

or when it involves

00:26:07--> 00:26:19

disposal of something that you don't own. So these two cases, you're not allowed to fulfill a vow. So this is the story of God's Word.

00:26:20--> 00:26:29

Allah rasool Allah, He saw Salam returned from this reservoir five nights after he had left to pursue that.

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

We move on after that to

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

a city Yeah.

00:26:36--> 00:26:41

And that is the Surya of cools, injured and figurine on the Allahu

00:26:44--> 00:26:46

inshallah of the 60 year

00:26:50--> 00:27:00

a group of delegates from the tribes of rochen and Reina visited Medina

00:27:01--> 00:27:04

and visited the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

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

They sat with him they spoke about Islam. And

00:27:10--> 00:27:17

they said to him, oh prophet of Allah, we are a people who

00:27:19--> 00:27:21

take care of animals, livestock.

00:27:23--> 00:27:30

We are not a people who plant fields, meaning we're not farmers.

00:27:32--> 00:27:36

And we all know that the people of Medina were into agriculture.

00:27:38--> 00:27:48

So anyways, they then made it clear to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that due to a certain sickness that they had been afflicted with.

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

They didn't want to stay in Medina.

00:27:52--> 00:27:57

So they showed as if they were interested interested in Islam, they even accepted Islam.

00:27:59--> 00:28:03

And we all know that in those days, if you accept Islam,

00:28:04--> 00:28:14

you have to migrate, make Hedra and be with the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam. So they were making excuses. And they were saying, We can't really stay here where we're ill, we're sick.

00:28:16--> 00:28:23

So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam instructed them to go outside of Medina and Campo over there.

00:28:25--> 00:28:26

And he gave them a shepherd

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

to accompany them, and he gave them some camels.

00:28:33--> 00:28:35

And he told them, to drink

00:28:37--> 00:28:43

the camel's milk and use it to urine to treat their sickness

00:28:44--> 00:28:45

to treat their sickness.

00:28:48--> 00:28:52

But these men, they were up to no good

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

and so on. And so as soon as as soon as they left Medina,

00:28:59--> 00:29:01

the apostate did

00:29:03--> 00:29:09

the, you know, they left Islam. They killed the shepherd.

00:29:10--> 00:29:12

And they ran away with the Cardinals.

00:29:14--> 00:29:22

So as soon as Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wasallam gotten us, he sent some of his companions to chase after them.

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

And he gave them instructions

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

to capture these men

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

and cut off their hands and their legs

00:29:35--> 00:29:38

and smear their eyes with heated nails.

00:29:42--> 00:29:43

So that is what they did.

00:29:44--> 00:29:46

And then they left them to die over there.

00:29:49--> 00:29:54

Now, although this seems to be a very cruel punishment,

00:29:55--> 00:30:00

it is something that Allah legislated for

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

Word such criminals who cause mischief in the earth

00:30:06--> 00:30:08

and that's why the majority of the scholars

00:30:10--> 00:30:11

mentioned regarding

00:30:12--> 00:30:41

the iron SUTA Magadha that it was revealed regarding this incident. There are other opinions that it was revealed regarding other events. But many of them say it was regarding this What does Allah subhana wa Tada say, in the matches up with Lolita? You had a boon Allah Azza wa Sula, who is out of your OB FanSided Thank you cut through, oh, you saw level out to cut to ID him? What

00:30:44--> 00:31:17

are we doing so we know that he can love him crazy. And for dunya what I'm going to ask you naughty, I had to happen when, indeed the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and spread the mischief in the land is death, crucifixion, cutting off their hands and their feet from opposite sides or to be exiled from the land. This is a disgrace for them in this dunya and they will suffer a tremendous punishment in

00:31:21--> 00:31:28

so this was the end of these of these men. And this was a punishment that they deserved.

00:31:29--> 00:31:35

After that, we move on to this idea of Abu Zubaydah Ibnu, John Ross, Robbie Loggerhead.

00:31:39--> 00:31:41

And this is the last expedition

00:31:42--> 00:31:52

that we will mention before the next major event in the zero and that is sort of an odd.

00:31:53--> 00:31:57

So this particular Cydia was

00:31:58--> 00:32:06

right before that major event of social phobia which we will start covering next week in sha Allah

00:32:09--> 00:32:13

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent about a leader in a genre

00:32:14--> 00:32:15

for the alumni,

00:32:16--> 00:32:18

with some 300 men

00:32:20--> 00:32:21

to do two things.

00:32:23--> 00:32:26

One was to attack and discipline,

00:32:27--> 00:32:28

the tribe of Johanna

00:32:30--> 00:32:31

who are hostile to the Muslims.

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

And they lived on the close to the sea coast.

00:32:38--> 00:32:41

Some five nights journey away from Medina.

00:32:43--> 00:32:51

So this was one objective. And the second was to monitor a caravan of crash.

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

So

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

these men, the Sahaba, they went,

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

but

00:33:03--> 00:33:06

they did not fight there, no fighting had occurred.

00:33:07--> 00:33:15

Because as soon as they reached the area, the enemy had fled after they heard of the arrival of the Muslims.

00:33:16--> 00:33:17

But

00:33:18--> 00:33:27

what this particular expedition was known for was not any of the fighting, but rather it became known for something else.

00:33:28--> 00:33:29

During this expedition,

00:33:31--> 00:33:37

the Muslims were short on supplies. And food was running out.

00:33:39--> 00:33:41

It became so difficult that

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

aboard a leader in a genre,

00:33:45--> 00:33:46

he had to

00:33:47--> 00:33:51

put limits on the food that they had to the point where

00:33:52--> 00:33:57

in the end, he was giving one date to each of his men as a meal.

00:34:02--> 00:34:07

And it got so bad that they started to eat leaves of trees.

00:34:10--> 00:34:12

So what are the companions

00:34:14--> 00:34:18

who had a lot of wealth, and he had camels.

00:34:19--> 00:34:21

He started to slaughter his camels.

00:34:24--> 00:34:33

And so the first time he slaughtered three, the second time he fought another three. And then Abu Zubaydah, Nomura, he said enough, that's it.

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

We need to use these camels to to make it back to Medina. So he stopped him.

00:34:40--> 00:34:41

So

00:34:43--> 00:34:44

after a month

00:34:45--> 00:34:47

of traveling,

00:34:48--> 00:34:51

finally, they reached the sea coast.

00:34:53--> 00:34:56

And Allah subhana wa Tada sent them

00:34:57--> 00:34:58

a gift

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

and now

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

It was a huge, massive well,

00:35:04--> 00:35:08

they happen to be dead, it was swept ashore.

00:35:10--> 00:35:14

So they ate from this will

00:35:15--> 00:35:17

for the next 20 days.

00:35:18--> 00:35:20

And they said, We

00:35:21--> 00:35:25

ate so much of it that we became fat. And we use this oil

00:35:26--> 00:35:27

and it's fat.

00:35:29--> 00:35:37

And to show you how huge this whale was about, okay, who are the alumni, he took one of its ribs

00:35:38--> 00:35:46

and erected it. And then made one of his largest animals, either a camel or horse.

00:35:48--> 00:35:54

And he made one of his companions to race. Teres under the written

00:35:56--> 00:36:00

this is so this is how huge this whale was.

00:36:03--> 00:36:04

When they returned to Medina,

00:36:06--> 00:36:11

and it formed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about what had happened.

00:36:12--> 00:36:14

He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:36:16--> 00:36:24

Eat the provision that Allah has brought out for you. And also give us some of it to eat if you have.

00:36:25--> 00:36:33

So they brought some of it that they had saved and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ate from it.

00:36:34--> 00:36:45

So this is the story of a guru Bader who was also known as Surya seIf and behind the wheel of the sea.

00:36:47--> 00:36:59

So these are some of the main military campaigns that took place during this time between the Battle of hijab and soldier, elephant Abia

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

and as we mentioned next week, we will move on to social today. But before we do that, one important event that took place during this time

00:37:12--> 00:37:23

was another marriage of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that was his marriage to Xena bit Josh Radi Allahu

00:37:26--> 00:37:31

now is in a bid to Josh she was the sister of

00:37:32--> 00:37:33

Abdullah bin Josh.

00:37:35--> 00:37:40

And we mentioned his story in the battle. He was one of the Shuhada

00:37:42--> 00:37:44

and her mother

00:37:45--> 00:37:46

was Amina

00:37:48--> 00:37:49

beat Adam palette.

00:37:50--> 00:37:51

So she was

00:37:52--> 00:37:55

Xena, the textures.

00:37:58--> 00:38:04

She was a cousin of Rasul Allah, He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:38:07--> 00:38:13

and her and we'll name it was the aunt of the Prophet sallallahu it he was saying. So

00:38:14--> 00:38:20

initially, what happened was that Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to her

00:38:21--> 00:38:24

and proposed to her to marry

00:38:26--> 00:38:30

his servant Z in Manhattan.

00:38:34--> 00:38:35

And

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

what he was doing was he was asking Xena,

00:38:42--> 00:38:46

who comes from the nobility of Quraysh to marry a servant?

00:38:48--> 00:39:00

Because it was sort of law, he sort of law How do you send them wanting to break the barriers of the class system that existed among the Arabs

00:39:01--> 00:39:10

and he wanted to start with his old family. He wants to set the example because breaking such customs is difficult.

00:39:11--> 00:39:17

And sometimes the leader needs to do himself to set that example so that everyone follows him.

00:39:19--> 00:39:21

So how does she react?

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

She said no.

00:39:25--> 00:39:29

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Yes, you will marry him.

00:39:30--> 00:39:34

She said, O Messenger of Allah. Let me think about it.

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

So while they were talking,

00:39:40--> 00:39:43

Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals this idea is similar to

00:39:45--> 00:39:51

one that can mean in one minute, either called Allah Allahu wa rasuluh. Mr.

00:39:53--> 00:39:58

Emery here, when they also allow us to live who are called you

00:40:00--> 00:40:17

It is not for a believing man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decided in a matter for them to have any choice in the matter, indeed, whoever disobeyed Allah and His Messenger has clearly gone for a string.

00:40:19--> 00:40:31

So then when this idea was revealed, Xena had been to Egypt, she said, I accept him as a husband. I will not disobey the Messenger of Allah and I will marry him myself.

00:40:32--> 00:40:33

So they got married.

00:40:35--> 00:40:36

But Subhan Allah,

00:40:37--> 00:40:38

things didn't work out.

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

They

00:40:42--> 00:40:46

would come to Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam complaining about his wife.

00:40:48--> 00:40:51

But Rasul Allah, He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him,

00:40:52--> 00:40:53

fear Allah

00:40:54--> 00:40:56

and hold on to your wife.

00:40:57--> 00:41:03

I'm sick 100 acres older COVID Tequila. These were the words of the prophets on the lager it was Allah.

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

But things just couldn't continue on.

00:41:07--> 00:41:09

There was no compatibility.

00:41:10--> 00:41:12

He wasn't happy with her and she wasn't happy with him.

00:41:13--> 00:41:16

So in the end, divorce was a must.

00:41:17--> 00:41:19

And the marriage was ended eventually after one year.

00:41:22--> 00:41:36

Now, there was another aspect of the era Jahai Lea society that Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also wanted to bring an end to

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

it that was

00:41:44--> 00:41:47

that adopting sleeves

00:41:49--> 00:41:53

and making them your own children. This was one of their customers.

00:41:55--> 00:42:00

And Rasul Allah, He said, Allah, Allah and he was son had adopted XID when he was young.

00:42:03--> 00:42:05

And when they would adopt someone,

00:42:07--> 00:42:09

that child would bear their name.

00:42:12--> 00:42:15

And so Zeno's even known as Zaid ibn Muhammad.

00:42:18--> 00:42:21

Later on Allah subhanho, wa Taala ended this, this practice.

00:42:23--> 00:42:32

Now, since is a it was looked at as the son of Rasulullah, sallAllahu wasallam. It was impossible

00:42:33--> 00:42:36

for him to marry his son's wife.

00:42:38--> 00:42:40

Even if she's now divorced.

00:42:41--> 00:42:46

It was a no no for a man to marry the wife of his adopted son.

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

All the rules that apply

00:42:51--> 00:42:59

between a father and a son applied between Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and his adopted son say.

00:43:02--> 00:43:18

So, one of those rules was this, that a man can never marry the wafer, his adopted son. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Again, he wanted to break this tradition among the arms.

00:43:19--> 00:43:22

And what better way to break it by

00:43:24--> 00:43:26

breaking the customer himself.

00:43:28--> 00:43:30

And so as we mentioned, it carries more weight.

00:43:31--> 00:43:44

When, you know, the leader does it himself, rather than just speaking about it? So now, pursuit Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes and marries Xena Buttigieg Randy alone.

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

And obviously, this would cause a storm.

00:43:52--> 00:43:56

And he did. And so here we had two rulings. One

00:43:59--> 00:44:01

there is no more adoption.

00:44:03--> 00:44:04

And to

00:44:05--> 00:44:06

a man can marry the wife

00:44:07--> 00:44:16

of his formally adopted son. Allah subhanho wa Taala says majha Allahu Leon Julian in Canada in Egypt.

00:44:18--> 00:44:23

Allah has not pleased two hearts in the in the man of any chat in the chest of any

00:44:25--> 00:44:51

one manager Allah azza wa jal Kuhlman, Latty Allah E to law he ruined him in Hoonah. Omaha article, nor does Allah regard your wives as being unlawful for you like your real mother mother's even if you say that they are one that I know. Yeah, according of inadequate nor does Allah regard your adopted children has your real children

00:44:52--> 00:44:58

that you can count on as well. He Comala we are holding our disability. These are your baseless

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

claims but Allah declares the truth. And he alone guides to the Right Way. Then Allah subhanahu Metalla says, we'll do rumely II him who are accepted and Allah call them by the names of their real fathers.

00:45:18--> 00:45:19

For inlanta I know

00:45:20--> 00:45:23

that one Quinton Dini one article

00:45:24--> 00:45:35

that is more just in the sight of Allah. But if you do not know their fathers, then they are simply your fellow believers and brothers indeed, and your close associates.

00:45:36--> 00:45:53

Well as alikhan Judah from females got to be here when I came to Google Komodo noir who was off who wrote Rahima there is no blame on you for what you do by mistake but only for what you do intentionally and Allah is all forgiving and He is the Most Merciful.

00:45:54--> 00:46:07

So this is how Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ended this tradition among the Arabs. He ended up marrying. Xena Midrash Radi Allahu Allah.

00:46:08--> 00:46:13

Now, Xena had been Josh was a very righteous believer.

00:46:15--> 00:46:33

In fact, among the wives of rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she held a special status. Now shout out the Allahu Anhu says, None of the wives of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would compete with me in my status with him except for Xena.

00:46:36--> 00:46:38

And last week or the week before

00:46:39--> 00:46:40

we mentioned

00:46:42--> 00:46:44

in the story of the if

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

that slander,

00:46:48--> 00:46:59

how Allah had protected Xena big Josh shot on the wall behind her when she was going through that very difficult time.

00:47:01--> 00:47:06

She herself praises Xena, Ben Josh, because her sister,

00:47:07--> 00:47:15

the sister of Xena Ben Jeff had come to her to incite her to say look, you know, this is your chance.

00:47:17--> 00:47:43

Right? You could easily join those who are spreading this rumor, but she did it. And I shall Radi Allahu anha praises her for that. It says Allah saved her because of her piety. Her Taqwa. So anyways, it shuttled the Allahu Anhu says, and this hadith is in Buhari, she says, some of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once asked him

00:47:44--> 00:47:49

who among us will be the first to follow you meaning after you die.

00:47:50--> 00:47:53

So he said the one who has a longest hand.

00:47:54--> 00:47:59

So I she says, we started measuring our hands with a stick.

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

And sodas hand turned out to be the longest.

00:48:05--> 00:48:16

But then after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Xena being Josh was the first to pass away among us. And this was in the philosopher Varma.

00:48:18--> 00:48:39

So then we came to know that the long hand was a symbol of generosity and giving. And so she says, I she says, Xena been Jesh was the first to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after his death. And she used to be the most generous among us.

00:48:41--> 00:48:54

Nakisha also says about her by never saw a woman better than her in her deen and more fearful of Allah than her and more truthful in her speech, and more

00:48:55--> 00:48:59

attentive to the family relationships than her.

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

And I have never seen a woman who used to give more than her. And she would give herself totally to any good deed that she would that she would do.

00:49:10--> 00:49:11

But the only thing

00:49:12--> 00:49:23

the only negative thing about her is that she had a bad temper. But she would soon come back to her normal state, meaning she wouldn't allow her temper to overtake her.

00:49:25--> 00:49:26

Now, as we said,

00:49:28--> 00:49:34

this marriage of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam to Zenith injection, it was a point of controversy.

00:49:36--> 00:49:38

And that was the case

00:49:40--> 00:49:41

in those days,

00:49:42--> 00:49:43

until the present

00:49:44--> 00:49:45

so it caused a storm

00:49:47--> 00:49:51

when the Prophet SAW along and it was almost alive, and even

00:49:52--> 00:49:53

today,

00:49:54--> 00:49:56

and so, the enemies of Islam

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

have picked on certain things.

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

marriages of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam to attack Islam and undermine

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

the deen.

00:50:07--> 00:50:10

And it's interesting to see that

00:50:11--> 00:50:21

there are two particular marriages that they speak about the most. And these two are the merger the process and I'm with Sharon.

00:50:22--> 00:50:32

And we spoke about this when we spoke about his marriage to her. And secondly, his marriage to Xena. Radi Allahu anha.

00:50:34--> 00:50:43

And so, hi Aisha. It was because of her young age as Xena Brawley, Allahu anha. Then they surrounded it with these tales and legends.

00:50:44--> 00:50:45

It said,

00:50:46--> 00:50:51

you know, the Prophet SAW Selim had this love affair with her with Ariana Billa.

00:50:55--> 00:51:00

But what's interesting to see is that these are also the two marriages

00:51:01--> 00:51:06

that were both from ALLAH SubhanA who went down from above the seven heavens.

00:51:09--> 00:51:13

Xena brother Allahu anha would say to the other wives.

00:51:15--> 00:51:18

You are all married by your parents or your only up

00:51:20--> 00:51:26

to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while I was married by ALLAH from above the seven heavens.

00:51:27--> 00:51:30

What is she talking about? That I in Suunto

00:51:31--> 00:52:04

ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says, if the cotyledonary and Allahu alayhi wa Ananda ie I'm sick it because Oh, what toquilla autofeed. Enough Sita Mulago nobody, what action nurse will LA who? The hubco and Tasha. And when you said Allah is talking to the prophets of Salaam, your Allah says to him, and when you said to the one for whom Allah has done a favor, meaning z to the world, right? And he has done you a favor as well.

00:52:05--> 00:52:07

When you said to him,

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

fear Allah and hold on to your wife. Remember that statement?

00:52:13--> 00:52:16

While concealing within yourself what Allah was going to reveal.

00:52:18--> 00:52:42

So you were considering the people, whereas Allah was more worthy of your consideration. And then Allah says ffilm KOBAS III don't mean her. What are the word generika We tell you that you're gonna mean a halogen fee as well as you are Divya either. Colognian Hunedoara Okay, and I'm gonna law hemophilia.

00:52:43--> 00:52:56

By the way, we hear the name of Z Rhodiola. When I'm here, he is the only companion who is mentioned by name in the entire Quran.

00:52:58--> 00:53:10

And so this shows his virtue of his status. You know, even some of the closest companions of Prophet SAW Salem, Abu Bakr and Omar were not mentioned by name. Yes, Abu Bakr was mentioned

00:53:12--> 00:53:14

but not by name. It who have you heard

00:53:15--> 00:53:20

the Radi Allahu Allah is the only one mentioned by name here. Allah says here.

00:53:22--> 00:53:29

So when they totally lost interest in keeping his wife, we gave her to you in marriage.

00:53:31--> 00:53:34

So this is what, Xena or the one I was talking about.

00:53:36--> 00:53:44

This is the statement of Allah. Allah is saying, I gave you I gave her to you

00:53:47--> 00:54:09

so that there would be no blame on the believers for marrying the ex wives of their adopted sons after their divorce. And Allah's command is totally binding. We learned from this is that this was the reason why Allah subhanahu inter had made his messenger to marry Xena but

00:54:11--> 00:54:13

it's not as the enemies of Islam claim.

00:54:15--> 00:54:24

But rather as Allah says here, so that people don't feel uncomfortable with such marriages with their

00:54:25--> 00:54:29

you know, the ex wives of their adopted sons.

00:54:31--> 00:54:34

So this was in a in a big rush elsewhere, Aisha Radi Allahu Lanka.

00:54:36--> 00:54:39

There was no formal marriage or anything.

00:54:40--> 00:54:43

The Prophet sallallahu annual son just walked into her room.

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

And he was married to her

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

because

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

he saw her and marry her in a dream.

00:54:54--> 00:54:57

And we mentioned that story when we spoke about

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

his marriage to her

00:55:00--> 00:55:10

So that marriage happened because he saw a dream. And we know that the dreams of the NBA our way, from was apparent when

00:55:11--> 00:55:19

we conclude tonight's session with some of the lessons that we learned from what we have gone through tonight.

00:55:22--> 00:55:29

From all of these stories, the first lesson that we learned is the importance of

00:55:31--> 00:55:32

keeping fit

00:55:33--> 00:55:35

and training.

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

We see this in the story of

00:55:39--> 00:55:42

settlement, even an acquirer of your loved one.

00:55:43--> 00:55:44

He had this skill

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

that helped him single handedly to keep the enemy running

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

to the point where they became tired and he still wasn't tired.

00:55:57--> 00:55:59

Why did he get tired? Because he was fit.

00:56:02--> 00:56:08

He was, you know, he kept himself in good shape. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says,

00:56:11--> 00:56:11

shall we?

00:56:14--> 00:56:16

Claiborne what I have been a lucky winner

00:56:17--> 00:56:22

of the iPhone equally high, that the strong believer

00:56:23--> 00:56:38

is better and more beloved to Allah than the weak believer. But there's good in both. Although this hadith is talking about the strength of Eman, many scholars say it also includes physical strength.

00:56:40--> 00:56:44

And that comes through keeping yourself fit and training.

00:56:45--> 00:56:53

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also says that everything in which there is no dhikr of Allah is idle play.

00:56:55--> 00:56:59

Meaning, there are so many things you could enjoy in history.

00:57:01--> 00:57:04

But it is all idle play entertainment.

00:57:06--> 00:57:36

It is enjoyment you will get in this dunya and it will die with you in this dunya you're not going to benefit from it. But then the prophets of Allah and it was Sunday except he said, except for things in for things. You're actually benefiting from playing and enjoying yourself. He said, A man playing with his wife, a man training his horse, a man running between two lines, as in a race and a man learning how to swim.

00:57:38--> 00:57:40

And all of this is

00:57:41--> 00:57:50

part of training and keeping ourselves fit. And all of that is also part of fulfilling

00:57:51--> 00:57:56

the Command of Allah subhana momenta is what I do love that stood out to me,

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

you know,

00:57:58--> 00:58:01

to prepare against your enemy's strength.

00:58:03--> 00:58:09

So we need to have these skills, including archery as a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

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

you know, commenting on this area,

00:58:13--> 00:58:15

the Kuwa here,

00:58:16--> 00:58:29

the prophets of salaam said in Arabic, that the strength that Allah is talking about here is in archery, shooting, Target, Target, Target practicing.

00:58:30--> 00:58:31

The second lesson that we learned

00:58:33--> 00:58:40

is from the story of the punishment that was given to those men.

00:58:41--> 00:58:43

We say that the punishments of Allah

00:58:44--> 00:58:45

are just

00:58:46--> 00:58:50

even if they seem cruel, and harsh.

00:58:52--> 00:58:56

In fact, they are not just just but they are also a mercy.

00:58:58--> 00:59:06

And so, by getting rid of such criminals, people will no longer live in fear.

00:59:07--> 00:59:14

And they can feel safe walking in the streets or traveling outside of the city.

00:59:16--> 00:59:25

And this will also serve as an example for people who want to make a living out of you know, raiding and robbing and killing people.

00:59:27--> 00:59:28

At the same time.

00:59:30--> 00:59:31

At the same time,

00:59:33--> 00:59:45

if this punishment if the punishment of Allah that Allah has legislated, does not involve killing, like for example, in the case of stealing, we cut off the handle right.

00:59:49--> 00:59:51

Then these people will live on

00:59:52--> 00:59:55

and they have a chance to purify themselves of their sin

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

and sincerely repent to Allah

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

So that's why in the very next area,

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

what does Allah say?

01:00:06--> 01:00:07

Except those

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

who,

01:00:11--> 01:00:14

there, they have escaped and you have not managed to,

01:00:16--> 01:00:34

to catch them. If they sincerely repent to Allah, then they are exempt from this punishment, showing us how in the end of the day, what does Allah want from us. He wants us to recognize our crimes and our sins and sincerely repent to Him.

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

So look at how

01:00:40--> 01:00:57

the punishments that Allah has legislated, are not how the enemies of Islam, they want to make it seem that they are barbaric and savage, but rather, they are just and they're also a mercy for everyone.

01:00:58--> 01:00:59

The third lesson that we learned

01:01:01--> 01:01:10

is in the story of Xena injection on the one hand, the importance of obeying Allah and His messenger.

01:01:12--> 01:01:14

Allah revealed the idea in solitude

01:01:16--> 01:01:17

that we mentioned

01:01:18--> 01:01:25

when I can only move me in Wilhelmina to Cabo Wahoo rasuluh. I'm right, and you're cooler,

01:01:26--> 01:01:34

or medium that no believing man or woman, when Allah has, or his messenger have decided on something.

01:01:35--> 01:01:39

No believe in man or woman has any choice in that matter.

01:01:40--> 01:01:42

Allah revealed this idea

01:01:43--> 01:01:49

when Xena that Josh initially refused to marry,

01:01:50--> 01:01:54

whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ordered her to marry.

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

Even though this is something personal.

01:01:59--> 01:02:04

And she felt that she had the right to not comply to the order.

01:02:07--> 01:02:07

And

01:02:09--> 01:02:10

yet Allah said what he said.

01:02:12--> 01:02:23

And he said, Whoever displease Allah and His Messenger, they have clearly gone for a straight look at how strong these words are regarding that particular incident.

01:02:24--> 01:02:26

So how about us today?

01:02:27--> 01:02:36

What rate do we have for disobeying the orders of Allah and His Messenger in that, which is for less

01:02:37--> 01:02:39

than that example,

01:02:40--> 01:02:43

of Xena to judge

01:02:45--> 01:03:02

if our desires are contrary to something that Allah and His Messenger want us to do, we have to do what Allah and His Messenger have commanded us to do. We don't follow our whims and our desires. what excuse do we have

01:03:03--> 01:03:07

for not following the Sunnah of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam.

01:03:08--> 01:03:09

Just because we don't like it.

01:03:11--> 01:03:19

Just because it doesn't suit our hella, our wounds and our desires, just because it's inconvenient for us.

01:03:21--> 01:03:23

We are servants of Allah.

01:03:25--> 01:03:33

And we are followers of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So whatever we are told to do, we have to do, it's not up to us to decide

01:03:34--> 01:03:40

in that which Allah and His Messenger has already decided. Finally, one last lesson that we'll mention.

01:03:43--> 01:03:46

And that was once again in the story of

01:03:47--> 01:03:49

Xena being suggested shall be loved.

01:03:53--> 01:03:56

And that is the Mercy of Allah in legislating

01:03:58--> 01:03:59

divorce.

01:04:00--> 01:04:06

And so we see in the story of is a marriage to Xena interjection or the love and

01:04:08--> 01:04:19

how Islam allows divorce in cases where the husband and the wife they don't see eye to eye and there is no compatibility.

01:04:20--> 01:04:27

Unfortunately, some Muslims today they have this incorrect perception of divorce,

01:04:28--> 01:04:36

where they believe that it is something disliked completely and it should never be done.

01:04:38--> 01:04:40

So here we have an example

01:04:41--> 01:04:51

of a case of divorce among the most righteous of people to walk the face of the earth, that generation

01:04:53--> 01:04:56

you know, the generation of the Sahaba

01:04:58--> 01:04:59

what it shows us is that

01:05:01--> 01:05:11

You know, righteousness and being people of Taqwa does not mean that you can never divorce your wife.

01:05:12--> 01:05:20

Right? We have to separate these two things because there could be other factors besides the deen

01:05:21--> 01:05:23

that come in between,

01:05:25--> 01:05:27

you know, personalities,

01:05:28--> 01:05:31

personal preferences related to the dunya

01:05:32--> 01:05:35

has nothing to do with the deen of Allah.

01:05:36--> 01:05:39

It's not that, oh, he's not praying.

01:05:40--> 01:05:42

You know, she's not wearing hijab? No.

01:05:44--> 01:05:48

It has nothing to do with the deen of Allah.

01:05:49--> 01:05:51

But it has to do with compatibility.

01:05:53--> 01:06:05

And so there was no compatibility here. And so they ended up getting divorced. And nobody looked down on them. Nobody blamed them or criticize them.

01:06:07--> 01:06:08

But at the same time, we say

01:06:10--> 01:06:15

that Islam does encourage us to first you know, reconcile.

01:06:17--> 01:06:24

When problems first start to arise, you know, find solutions to our marital problems, and

01:06:25--> 01:06:31

also take into consideration other harms of divorce. Like for example, if there's children,

01:06:33--> 01:06:38

you know, you don't want there to be any harm on them, we have to look long term as well.

01:06:41--> 01:06:45

And that is exactly what we see here. In this example,

01:06:46--> 01:06:49

when XID robiola when I first came to the prophets, Allah,

01:06:51--> 01:06:56

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam initially, what was his reaction? Don't do it.

01:06:57--> 01:06:57

Right.

01:06:58--> 01:07:00

Initially, he said, Don't divorce her.

01:07:01--> 01:07:03

Fear Allah and hold on to your wife.

01:07:06--> 01:07:08

So we say yes.

01:07:10--> 01:07:12

Divorce is,

01:07:13--> 01:07:36

you know, it is something in our deen. But it is not the first thing that we resort to. But at the same time, it is not something we completely shut the door on, like the Christians do. It's all in their religion. There is no such thing as divorce. Once you enter into a marriage, you have to save.

01:07:37--> 01:07:39

And that's why most of them they don't get married.

01:07:40--> 01:07:53

And so these are some of the lessons that we learn from the stories that we went through tonight, which all the next week, we'll move on to sort of a good idea. Subhanak Lagna will be handy to shed with you.

01:07:54--> 01:08:03

So if you look over to Lake wa salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad while he was here to marine was salam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
