Last week, we went over an important part

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

of the Sirah

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

that

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

took place

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

after

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

the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah.

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

And that was

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

reaching out to the kings of the world,

00:01:06 --> 00:01:08

and expanding the reach of

00:01:09 --> 00:01:10

the dawah by

00:01:11 --> 00:01:12

sending out letters

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

with

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

messengers

00:01:15 --> 00:01:18

that the Prophet salallahu alaihi wasalam chose from

00:01:18 --> 00:01:19

among the companions

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

to send these letters to

00:01:22 --> 00:01:24

some of the leaders of the world at

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

that time.

00:01:25 --> 00:01:27

And so we went through some of the

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

more prominent

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

letters

00:01:30 --> 00:01:32

like the one addressed to

00:01:35 --> 00:01:35

Qaysa or,

00:01:36 --> 00:01:37

the Caesar of,

00:01:38 --> 00:01:39

the Roman Empire,

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

Heraclius,

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

as well as Kisra

00:01:45 --> 00:01:46

of Persia,

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

and al Muqawqis

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

who was

00:01:50 --> 00:01:52

one of the kings in Egypt.

00:01:54 --> 00:01:56

And we also looked at how each of

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

these

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

leaders reacted

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

to these letters,

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

and how Allah

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

dealt with each

00:02:04 --> 00:02:06

based on their respective reactions.

00:02:11 --> 00:02:12

And so we now move on to

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

discuss

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

the fate of

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

the peace treaty

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

between

00:02:21 --> 00:02:23

the Muslims and Kuwait.

00:02:25 --> 00:02:26

And so it's only been

00:02:27 --> 00:02:29

a little over a year.

00:02:30 --> 00:02:31

And

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

what happens

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

is that Quraysh,

00:02:35 --> 00:02:38

they violate one of the terms of the

00:02:38 --> 00:02:38

agreement,

00:02:40 --> 00:02:42

The agreement that was supposed to last for

00:02:42 --> 00:02:43

10 years,

00:02:44 --> 00:02:46

and that had brought peace

00:02:47 --> 00:02:48

between them and the Muslims.

00:02:49 --> 00:02:51

And so what exactly happened?

00:02:53 --> 00:02:54

What was the story?

00:02:55 --> 00:02:56

And

00:02:56 --> 00:02:58

what did it result in?

00:02:58 --> 00:03:00

So that's what we're gonna be talking about

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

today, insha'Allah ta'ala.

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

We start off with some background

00:03:06 --> 00:03:08

that actually takes us back to

00:03:09 --> 00:03:11

the days of Jahiliya, before Islam.

00:03:13 --> 00:03:15

The Arabs being

00:03:16 --> 00:03:17

a tribal society,

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

they would have alliances where

00:03:22 --> 00:03:25

a man who doesn't belong to a strong

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

tribe would

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

move to live with

00:03:31 --> 00:03:32

a stronger tribe,

00:03:33 --> 00:03:35

and then he would become

00:03:36 --> 00:03:37

their allies.

00:03:38 --> 00:03:40

What is meant by this is that

00:03:41 --> 00:03:42

that tribe now

00:03:43 --> 00:03:44

protects this person

00:03:45 --> 00:03:46

and takes care of him

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

like they would

00:03:48 --> 00:03:50

any member of their tribe.

00:03:53 --> 00:03:55

So during the days of Jahiliyyah,

00:03:57 --> 00:03:58

what happened was

00:03:59 --> 00:04:00

a man from

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

Banu al Hdram, a tribe

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

who was an ally of Banu Bakr,

00:04:09 --> 00:04:10

another tribe,

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

he was traveling

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

in Shijaz.

00:04:17 --> 00:04:18

And when he was deep

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

in the territory

00:04:20 --> 00:04:21

of Khuzar,

00:04:23 --> 00:04:24

which is a tribe

00:04:25 --> 00:04:26

outside of Mecca.

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

Some men of Huza'a,

00:04:31 --> 00:04:33

they killed him and they stole his money.

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

So

00:04:37 --> 00:04:40

since this man was an ally of the

00:04:40 --> 00:04:41

tribe of Banu Bakr,

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

who also lived

00:04:45 --> 00:04:46

in Hejaz,

00:04:48 --> 00:04:49

outside of Mecca.

00:04:50 --> 00:04:52

What happened was Baru Bakr now,

00:04:53 --> 00:04:54

being his ally,

00:04:54 --> 00:04:55

they took revenge

00:04:56 --> 00:04:59

by going and killing a man from

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

Khuzar.

00:05:03 --> 00:05:04

Khuzar then targeted

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

3 members

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

from the family of

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

And this particular family belonged

00:05:23 --> 00:05:24

they consider themselves

00:05:26 --> 00:05:28

to be above everyone else. They were from

00:05:28 --> 00:05:29

Banu Bakr.

00:05:29 --> 00:05:32

But within the tribe of Banu Bakr, they

00:05:32 --> 00:05:33

basically,

00:05:35 --> 00:05:37

you know, they used to consider themselves to

00:05:37 --> 00:05:38

be the more noble

00:05:39 --> 00:05:40

of this tribe.

00:05:40 --> 00:05:42

So what they used to do is they

00:05:42 --> 00:05:43

used to charge

00:05:43 --> 00:05:45

double the blood money if

00:05:46 --> 00:05:47

one of their members was killed.

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

So

00:05:51 --> 00:05:53

if someone is killed, you ask for the

00:05:53 --> 00:05:54

blood money from the relatives.

00:05:55 --> 00:05:58

In this particular family, they would charge double.

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

And now, Huza'a

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

had killed

00:06:03 --> 00:06:04

3 of them.

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

And this was all in the in the

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

days of Jahiliya

00:06:09 --> 00:06:10

before

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

Isin.

00:06:11 --> 00:06:13

So here we have 2 tribes,

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

Banubakkuk

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

and Khuzah.

00:06:20 --> 00:06:21

They are both big tribes

00:06:22 --> 00:06:24

that live in shijas,

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

and

00:06:29 --> 00:06:30

they will revive.

00:06:34 --> 00:06:37

Now, one of the one of the terms

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

of the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah

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

was that

00:06:41 --> 00:06:44

whoever wanted to enter into an alliance with

00:06:44 --> 00:06:46

Quraysh could do so.

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

And whoever wanted to enter into an alliance

00:06:50 --> 00:06:51

with the Muslims,

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

they were free to do so.

00:06:57 --> 00:06:58

So Banu

00:06:59 --> 00:07:02

Bakr had entered into an alliance with Quraish

00:07:04 --> 00:07:05

and Khuzaa

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

had allied with

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

Muhammad sallallahu

00:07:09 --> 00:07:11

alaihi wasallam.

00:07:12 --> 00:07:15

And so now, here we have these alliances.

00:07:17 --> 00:07:18

Quraysh allies with

00:07:19 --> 00:07:21

or Banu Bakr allies with Quraysh,

00:07:21 --> 00:07:22

and Huza'a

00:07:22 --> 00:07:23

allies with

00:07:24 --> 00:07:25

the Muslims.

00:07:27 --> 00:07:28

Why did

00:07:28 --> 00:07:31

Huza'a in particular ally with the Muslims?

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

This was because

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

Huza'a

00:07:35 --> 00:07:36

had been allies

00:07:37 --> 00:07:39

of the Nuhashim,

00:07:40 --> 00:07:42

The family of Danu Hashim from Turaysh

00:07:42 --> 00:07:44

in the days of Jahiliya.

00:07:45 --> 00:07:47

And so they continued this tradition

00:07:48 --> 00:07:50

by allying themselves with the sun.

00:07:51 --> 00:07:52

And one of the most prominent

00:07:54 --> 00:07:57

figures of Banu Hashim, that being Muhammad

00:07:58 --> 00:07:59

Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.

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

Even though many of them at this time,

00:08:03 --> 00:08:04

they had remained as an shrikoon.

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

They were kuffar.

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

There were some among Khuzaa who were Muslims

00:08:10 --> 00:08:11

but many who were not.

00:08:12 --> 00:08:14

But yet, they still

00:08:14 --> 00:08:18

were loyal to Muhammad salallahu alaihi wa sallam

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

not because of religion

00:08:20 --> 00:08:22

but because of these tribal traditions.

00:08:23 --> 00:08:26

So they used to In the past,

00:08:26 --> 00:08:28

they used to be an ally of Banu

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

Hashim always.

00:08:30 --> 00:08:31

And now Muhammad

00:08:32 --> 00:08:35

is the most senior member of Binu Hashim.

00:08:35 --> 00:08:38

So they decided, we're gonna ally ourselves

00:08:39 --> 00:08:42

with Muhammad sallallahu alaihi was sallta.

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

So now what happens

00:08:48 --> 00:08:49

is for years,

00:08:52 --> 00:08:53

this rivalry

00:08:54 --> 00:08:56

had been taking place between Banu Bakr and

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

Fuzaq.

00:08:59 --> 00:08:59

And

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

for a long time,

00:09:02 --> 00:09:05

Banu Bakr, they wanted to seek revenge

00:09:06 --> 00:09:08

for those 3 men

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

who were killed.

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

Banu Bakr, they wanted to take revenge from

00:09:14 --> 00:09:15

Khuzar.

00:09:16 --> 00:09:17

So now during

00:09:18 --> 00:09:19

the peace treaty,

00:09:20 --> 00:09:21

during the

00:09:22 --> 00:09:25

period of the peace treaty after Per Daya,

00:09:26 --> 00:09:27

what happened was

00:09:28 --> 00:09:30

one of the leaders of Banu Bakr,

00:09:31 --> 00:09:33

a man by the name of Muawiya ibn

00:09:33 --> 00:09:34

Nawfal al Du'al,

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

who was from the family

00:09:37 --> 00:09:38

who lost

00:09:38 --> 00:09:39

those 3 men.

00:09:40 --> 00:09:41

You know, that,

00:09:42 --> 00:09:43

noble family

00:09:44 --> 00:09:45

from Ben Gurkha.

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

He found a golden opportunity

00:09:51 --> 00:09:52

for the revenge.

00:09:54 --> 00:09:55

He found

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

Khuzah

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

camp,

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

not too far from Mecca.

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

Right outside

00:10:06 --> 00:10:08

the boundary of the Haram of Mecca.

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

And

00:10:11 --> 00:10:13

they were not on alert and

00:10:13 --> 00:10:15

they didn't even have weapons.

00:10:15 --> 00:10:17

He said, this is the perfect opportunity.

00:10:18 --> 00:10:21

So what he did is he launched an

00:10:21 --> 00:10:22

attack on them.

00:10:25 --> 00:10:27

And so this man, Mahawiyah,

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

he gave orders

00:10:30 --> 00:10:32

to the other members of Banu Bakr

00:10:33 --> 00:10:33

to participate.

00:10:34 --> 00:10:35

However,

00:10:36 --> 00:10:37

many of them said no.

00:10:39 --> 00:10:40

Many of the chiefs of the Anubakar, they

00:10:40 --> 00:10:41

said,

00:10:42 --> 00:10:43

we're in a peace treaty.

00:10:44 --> 00:10:45

Right?

00:10:47 --> 00:10:49

We're in a peace treaty right now,

00:10:49 --> 00:10:51

and we can't do something like this.

00:10:54 --> 00:10:55

However, in the end,

00:10:57 --> 00:10:58

this man Mu'awiya

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

ibn Nawfal,

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

he carried

00:11:01 --> 00:11:02

out this attack

00:11:03 --> 00:11:05

on his own with some of his men.

00:11:06 --> 00:11:08

But what is important to note here

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

is that he also had the support

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

of

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

some men from

00:11:14 --> 00:11:15

his allied forces.

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

And so

00:11:18 --> 00:11:21

they provided him with arms

00:11:21 --> 00:11:23

and horses to launch this attack.

00:11:24 --> 00:11:25

And

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

these men from Thuraysh,

00:11:30 --> 00:11:32

they knew how dangerous this was.

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

However,

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

they thought they could get away with it

00:11:35 --> 00:11:36

because it was nighttime

00:11:37 --> 00:11:38

and no one would see.

00:11:39 --> 00:11:41

And so they thought that news would not

00:11:41 --> 00:11:43

reach the Prophet

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

about their participation,

00:11:45 --> 00:11:47

the participation of quick.

00:11:49 --> 00:11:50

So

00:11:51 --> 00:11:53

some of the people of Khuzaha were killed

00:11:54 --> 00:11:55

as a result.

00:11:56 --> 00:11:57

They say about 20,

00:11:58 --> 00:11:59

while the rest fled.

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

Where did they go? They entered into the

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

boundaries of the haram.

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

And

00:12:08 --> 00:12:10

the Arabs, they used to consider the sanctity

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

of the haruhar.

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

They used to consider it to be

00:12:15 --> 00:12:16

a grave sin

00:12:17 --> 00:12:19

to kill anyone inside

00:12:20 --> 00:12:22

the boundaries of the Haram of Makkah

00:12:23 --> 00:12:25

or to kill anyone during

00:12:25 --> 00:12:26

the sacred months.

00:12:28 --> 00:12:29

And so now

00:12:30 --> 00:12:32

the men of Mu'awiya,

00:12:33 --> 00:12:34

some of them, they stopped.

00:12:37 --> 00:12:39

And they actually started warning wawiyah.

00:12:41 --> 00:12:44

They told him, we are now entering the

00:12:44 --> 00:12:45

boundaries of the Haram.

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

They were saying,

00:12:49 --> 00:12:50

Your God, Your God.

00:12:51 --> 00:12:53

What did he say?

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

He said,

00:12:56 --> 00:12:58

There is no God today.

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

O Benu Bakr,

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

seek your revenge.

00:13:02 --> 00:13:04

In the name of Allah, you are stealing

00:13:04 --> 00:13:07

from people inside the Haram. Wouldn't you seek

00:13:07 --> 00:13:08

your revenge therein?

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

He was basically trying to justify this attack

00:13:15 --> 00:13:17

by saying that, You already

00:13:18 --> 00:13:19

already you guys

00:13:20 --> 00:13:22

are stealing from people inside of the Haram.

00:13:22 --> 00:13:23

They used to do this.

00:13:23 --> 00:13:25

They used to go and steal

00:13:25 --> 00:13:26

from inside the Haram.

00:13:28 --> 00:13:30

And so he's asking them, why are you

00:13:30 --> 00:13:31

complaining now?

00:13:32 --> 00:13:34

When you're actually taking revenge, you're doing something

00:13:34 --> 00:13:35

right.

00:13:35 --> 00:13:36

You're taking revenge

00:13:37 --> 00:13:38

for the blood of

00:13:38 --> 00:13:39

members

00:13:40 --> 00:13:42

of your family when you have this golden

00:13:42 --> 00:13:43

opportunity to do so.

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

So now,

00:13:47 --> 00:13:50

those people from Huza who fled into the

00:13:50 --> 00:13:51

haram,

00:13:52 --> 00:13:54

they end up going into Mecca now.

00:13:55 --> 00:13:55

And

00:13:56 --> 00:13:57

they went to seek refuge

00:13:59 --> 00:14:01

in the house of a man,

00:14:02 --> 00:14:06

Badeel ibn Warqa'al Khuzar. This was a man

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

from Khuzar

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

who used to live in Mecca.

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

And so they told him what happened.

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

And so he got

00:14:17 --> 00:14:19

the leaders of Huza'a together,

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

and

00:14:22 --> 00:14:23

immediately

00:14:24 --> 00:14:27

he got a group of 40 of

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

them

00:14:29 --> 00:14:31

to travel to Medina

00:14:33 --> 00:14:34

to convey

00:14:35 --> 00:14:36

what had happened to

00:14:37 --> 00:14:38

Rasulullah

00:14:38 --> 00:14:40

Sallallahu Alaihi Wasaydah.

00:14:42 --> 00:14:43

And so

00:14:43 --> 00:14:45

they go to Madinah

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

and

00:14:47 --> 00:14:48

they meet with the Prophet

00:14:49 --> 00:14:51

while he was sitting with his companions

00:14:52 --> 00:14:53

in the masjid.

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

One of their leaders,

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

Amr ibn Salim al Khuzai,

00:14:58 --> 00:15:00

he conveyed the news to the Prophet sallallahu

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

alaihi wa sallam

00:15:02 --> 00:15:03

in lines of poetry.

00:15:05 --> 00:15:07

And he was reminding the Prophet sallallahu alaihi

00:15:07 --> 00:15:09

wa sallam not only of their current alliance

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

but also the alliance they had with his

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

great great grandfather

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

Hashim.

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

What was the response of

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

Rasulullah

00:15:23 --> 00:15:25

Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam?

00:15:27 --> 00:15:30

Now if a similar situation was happening today

00:15:30 --> 00:15:31

and

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

a similar situation was to be brought before

00:15:36 --> 00:15:38

the leaders of today,

00:15:39 --> 00:15:40

they would probably say,

00:15:41 --> 00:15:42

let's consult

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

the international community,

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

or let's take it to the United Nations,

00:15:50 --> 00:15:52

or let's see what the Security Council is

00:15:52 --> 00:15:53

gonna say.

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

But when when

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

Amr

00:15:58 --> 00:16:00

ibn Salim presented

00:16:01 --> 00:16:04

this to the Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam,

00:16:05 --> 00:16:07

What was the response of the Prophet sallallahu

00:16:07 --> 00:16:08

alaihi

00:16:10 --> 00:16:11

wasallam? He responded

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

and he gave him a clear,

00:16:15 --> 00:16:18

and direct, and decisive answer right there and

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

then.

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

He said,

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

no sirutayahamr

00:16:22 --> 00:16:23

bin Salih.

00:16:25 --> 00:16:26

You have been helped.

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

O Amr bin Salih.

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

That's it. It's done.

00:16:34 --> 00:16:35

It's over with.

00:16:36 --> 00:16:38

You are guaranteed my help.

00:16:40 --> 00:16:42

He didn't tell him how.

00:16:44 --> 00:16:46

He didn't tell him he didn't give him

00:16:46 --> 00:16:47

any details

00:16:47 --> 00:16:49

of what he was gonna do,

00:16:50 --> 00:16:51

but he just gave him this promise.

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

And the narration it mentions

00:16:58 --> 00:16:59

that as soon as he was done talking

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

to him,

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

a cloud came by.

00:17:02 --> 00:17:03

And the Prophet

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

said, This is a sign

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

of the help of Allah coming.

00:17:12 --> 00:17:14

Immediately after that,

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

Rasulullah

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

started

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

making

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

preparations.

00:17:21 --> 00:17:22

Abu Bakr

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

he went to visit his daughter,

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

Aisha

00:17:31 --> 00:17:32

And he found her

00:17:32 --> 00:17:33

sifting and

00:17:34 --> 00:17:35

preparing wheat

00:17:36 --> 00:17:38

for the travel of Rasulullah

00:17:38 --> 00:17:39

Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.

00:17:40 --> 00:17:42

There was a particular kind of

00:17:43 --> 00:17:44

food that she would prepare

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

for him

00:17:46 --> 00:17:47

when he would travel

00:17:47 --> 00:17:49

on a military campaign.

00:17:51 --> 00:17:54

So when Abu Bakr rabiullahu anam saw her

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

doing that,

00:17:56 --> 00:17:57

he knew

00:17:58 --> 00:18:00

that the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam

00:18:01 --> 00:18:03

was intending on going out on a mission,

00:18:04 --> 00:18:06

but he didn't know where,

00:18:09 --> 00:18:10

or with who, against who?

00:18:11 --> 00:18:14

In one narration it says that he asked

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

Aisha

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

is Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wasallam planning on going

00:18:19 --> 00:18:20

to war,

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

on going to fight?

00:18:23 --> 00:18:24

Ayesha

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

said, yes.

00:18:27 --> 00:18:28

Abu Bakr then asked her,

00:18:29 --> 00:18:30

is it the Romans?

00:18:31 --> 00:18:33

Because that was the last enemy

00:18:34 --> 00:18:36

that the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam had

00:18:36 --> 00:18:37

fought. We covered

00:18:38 --> 00:18:39

recently the battle of Muqtah.

00:18:41 --> 00:18:42

What was her response?

00:18:43 --> 00:18:44

She didn't answer.

00:18:46 --> 00:18:48

Then he asked, is it so and so?

00:18:48 --> 00:18:49

She didn't answer.

00:18:51 --> 00:18:52

In one narration,

00:18:52 --> 00:18:53

she replied saying,

00:18:54 --> 00:18:55

I don't know.

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

I don't know.

00:18:58 --> 00:18:59

And so this

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

shows us that

00:19:02 --> 00:19:04

she was keeping a secret.

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

This shows us

00:19:06 --> 00:19:08

that whatever information she had from the Prophet

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

the Prophet

00:19:11 --> 00:19:13

wanted her to keep it a secret.

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

Meanwhile, back in Makkah,

00:19:20 --> 00:19:21

Quraysh

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

of Hudaybiyah

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

was meant to last

00:19:33 --> 00:19:34

for 10 years.

00:19:35 --> 00:19:37

That was the agreement, a 10 year period.

00:19:40 --> 00:19:43

And it was already broken

00:19:44 --> 00:19:45

in its 2nd year.

00:19:47 --> 00:19:48

It's mentioned

00:19:49 --> 00:19:50

in the books of Sira 17

00:19:52 --> 00:19:53

to 18 months

00:19:53 --> 00:19:55

after the crude idea this happened.

00:19:57 --> 00:19:58

And so,

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

Quraish,

00:20:02 --> 00:20:03

they decided they had to do something.

00:20:05 --> 00:20:07

Otherwise, that's it. It's over.

00:20:08 --> 00:20:09

The Prophet

00:20:10 --> 00:20:12

is gonna be marching into Madqah.

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

And so they decide to send

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

their most senior

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

individual,

00:20:23 --> 00:20:24

and that is none other than

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

Abu Sufyan.

00:20:27 --> 00:20:29

And so Abu Sufyan goes

00:20:30 --> 00:20:32

to Medina to meet the Prophet sallallahu alaihi

00:20:32 --> 00:20:33

wa sallam

00:20:33 --> 00:20:35

to try to do some damage control,

00:20:37 --> 00:20:39

to try to mend and patch up

00:20:40 --> 00:20:42

this violation and this reach

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

of the truce.

00:20:45 --> 00:20:46

On the way there,

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

Abu Sufyan,

00:20:47 --> 00:20:48

he runs into

00:20:50 --> 00:20:51

Badeel ibn Warqa'al

00:20:52 --> 00:20:53

Khuzar.

00:20:54 --> 00:20:56

Who is he? We mentioned him. He was

00:20:56 --> 00:20:57

the one who

00:20:58 --> 00:20:59

The people of Khuzaa, when they were

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

fleeing the attack,

00:21:02 --> 00:21:03

and they went into Mecca,

00:21:04 --> 00:21:05

they took refuge in his house.

00:21:06 --> 00:21:08

Then we mentioned he along with others went

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

to Medina

00:21:09 --> 00:21:10

to meet the Prophet sallallahu

00:21:11 --> 00:21:13

alaihi wa sallam and inform him of what

00:21:13 --> 00:21:14

had happened.

00:21:15 --> 00:21:17

So so when Abu Sufyan meets him,

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

he asked him, where do you just come

00:21:19 --> 00:21:20

from?

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

He said,

00:21:23 --> 00:21:24

I just went to visit

00:21:25 --> 00:21:27

some people of Huza'a on the coast.

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

In reality,

00:21:31 --> 00:21:33

we know that he had gone to meet

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

the Prophet

00:21:34 --> 00:21:36

and he was just coming back from

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

Madinah.

00:21:40 --> 00:21:41

So Abu Sufyan,

00:21:43 --> 00:21:44

he was suspicious of Dali

00:21:46 --> 00:21:47

and he didn't believe him.

00:21:48 --> 00:21:51

So he waited until he left

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

and then

00:21:53 --> 00:21:55

he went to the place where

00:21:56 --> 00:21:57

his camel was

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

and he took some of the droppings of

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

the camel

00:22:01 --> 00:22:03

and crushed it in his hands

00:22:04 --> 00:22:05

and found in it

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

crushed date seeds.

00:22:11 --> 00:22:13

And this is something

00:22:14 --> 00:22:15

that is fed

00:22:16 --> 00:22:17

to the camels of Medina.

00:22:19 --> 00:22:20

Because Medina is where

00:22:21 --> 00:22:23

the date on trees grow.

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

They don't grow in Mecca or

00:22:27 --> 00:22:28

in the land of Khuzah.

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

You know, he's claiming that he he went

00:22:32 --> 00:22:33

to meet some people of Khuzar.

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

Day palm trees don't grow there.

00:22:37 --> 00:22:39

And so when Abu Sufyan saw that,

00:22:40 --> 00:22:41

he said,

00:22:41 --> 00:22:43

he is just returning from Madinah.

00:22:44 --> 00:22:47

And so now he was even more worried.

00:22:49 --> 00:22:51

Abu Sufyan, he reaches Madinah.

00:22:52 --> 00:22:53

Where would he go?

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

He would obviously go

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

to the house of his daughter.

00:23:03 --> 00:23:04

Who was?

00:23:05 --> 00:23:06

The wife of the Prophet

00:23:09 --> 00:23:10

When he entered her house,

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

there was

00:23:13 --> 00:23:15

a rug on the floor or

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

a mattress.

00:23:18 --> 00:23:19

And

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

he went to sit on it.

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

Habibah.

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

She immediately pulled it away from him and

00:23:26 --> 00:23:27

wrapped it up.

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

Abu Sufyan says,

00:23:32 --> 00:23:33

I'm I'm not sure.

00:23:34 --> 00:23:37

Did you take the rug away from me

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

because

00:23:38 --> 00:23:40

you don't see it as being suitable for

00:23:40 --> 00:23:40

me?

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

I am not suitable for the run.

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

And so Habila

00:23:56 --> 00:23:58

radiAllahu anha, she says,

00:23:59 --> 00:24:01

This rug, this mattress belongs

00:24:02 --> 00:24:05

to Rasulullah Sallallahu Anha Wa Salam

00:24:05 --> 00:24:06

and you are

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

a mushrik nejis. You are a filthy mushrik.

00:24:11 --> 00:24:13

And I don't want you to sit on

00:24:13 --> 00:24:14

the rug of Rasulullah

00:24:14 --> 00:24:16

Surallahu alaihi wa sallam.

00:24:17 --> 00:24:18

Abu Sufyan

00:24:19 --> 00:24:20

was in shock,

00:24:20 --> 00:24:22

and he said, my daughter,

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

by Allah,

00:24:25 --> 00:24:28

some evil has befallen you since you left.

00:24:30 --> 00:24:31

But in reality,

00:24:32 --> 00:24:34

it was this imam

00:24:35 --> 00:24:36

that had changed her.

00:24:37 --> 00:24:39

Then Abu Sufyan, he went to meet the

00:24:39 --> 00:24:41

Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi, USM.

00:24:44 --> 00:24:47

He told him that he wanted to renew

00:24:48 --> 00:24:49

the treaty

00:24:50 --> 00:24:53

and actually extend the time period of the

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

truce.

00:24:54 --> 00:24:55

Rasulullah

00:24:55 --> 00:24:57

Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam asked him,

00:24:58 --> 00:25:00

did something happen from your end?

00:25:02 --> 00:25:03

He was saying that

00:25:04 --> 00:25:06

we already have an agreement for the next

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

10 years

00:25:07 --> 00:25:09

and barely 2 years have gone by.

00:25:10 --> 00:25:12

What's the point of coming now asking for

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

it to be renewed?

00:25:15 --> 00:25:17

Abu Sufyan said, no, everything is fine.

00:25:18 --> 00:25:21

So then rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wasallam

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

did not respond back.

00:25:24 --> 00:25:26

He just simply walked away.

00:25:27 --> 00:25:29

He just ignored him and walked away.

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

So then

00:25:32 --> 00:25:33

Abu Sufyan,

00:25:34 --> 00:25:36

he went to Abu Bakr

00:25:37 --> 00:25:39

and asked him to speak to Rasulullah

00:25:40 --> 00:25:41

Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam to intercede

00:25:42 --> 00:25:43

on his behalf

00:25:44 --> 00:25:46

and ask him to renew the terms of

00:25:46 --> 00:25:47

the treaty.

00:25:48 --> 00:25:50

What did Abu Bakr say?

00:25:50 --> 00:25:52

He said, I'm not gonna do that.

00:25:54 --> 00:25:56

Then Abu Sufyan,

00:25:57 --> 00:25:58

he goes to

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

Umar ibn Khattab radiAllahu anhu.

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

Now

00:26:02 --> 00:26:05

Quraish know very well who Umar was.

00:26:06 --> 00:26:07

They knew his nature

00:26:08 --> 00:26:09

and his character.

00:26:10 --> 00:26:13

But but this just goes to show you

00:26:13 --> 00:26:14

how desperate

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

Abu Sufyan

00:26:16 --> 00:26:17

now was.

00:26:19 --> 00:26:20

And think about it.

00:26:21 --> 00:26:23

This is after years

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

of Quraysh

00:26:25 --> 00:26:27

dealing with the Muslims

00:26:28 --> 00:26:29

with such pride and arrogance.

00:26:31 --> 00:26:34

Look at how the tides have now turned.

00:26:35 --> 00:26:37

Look at the state of desperation

00:26:39 --> 00:26:40

and humiliation

00:26:43 --> 00:26:46

that Abu Sufyan was going through right night,

00:26:46 --> 00:26:49

going door to door begging the Muslims to

00:26:49 --> 00:26:50

do something.

00:26:51 --> 00:26:53

And so he meets Umar ibn Khattab radiAllahu

00:26:53 --> 00:26:54

anhu

00:26:54 --> 00:26:55

and asks him

00:26:56 --> 00:26:58

to go to the Prophet sallallahu anhu and

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

speak to him on his behalf

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

and ask him to

00:27:02 --> 00:27:04

renew the terms of the treaty.

00:27:05 --> 00:27:07

Because the treaty has been breached,

00:27:08 --> 00:27:10

and he wants to renew it.

00:27:10 --> 00:27:11

Umar

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

says,

00:27:13 --> 00:27:15

you want me to intercede

00:27:16 --> 00:27:19

before Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam on your behalf?

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

By Allah.

00:27:22 --> 00:27:25

If I find nothing but but an answer

00:27:25 --> 00:27:26

to fight you,

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

I would fight.

00:27:29 --> 00:27:31

If I found nothing but ants

00:27:34 --> 00:27:36

to fight against you, I would go and

00:27:36 --> 00:27:38

fight my dam against you.

00:27:38 --> 00:27:39

So this was

00:27:40 --> 00:27:42

the response of Umar al Khattab

00:27:44 --> 00:27:47

So then Abu Sufyan being rejected,

00:27:48 --> 00:27:49

he goes

00:27:50 --> 00:27:52

to Ali ibn Abi Talib

00:27:54 --> 00:27:55

He meets him and he asks him to

00:27:55 --> 00:27:59

speak to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam to intercede

00:28:00 --> 00:28:01

on his behalf

00:28:01 --> 00:28:02

and ask him to renew

00:28:03 --> 00:28:04

the terms of the treaty.

00:28:05 --> 00:28:06

Ali

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

says,

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

wayhatayahu

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

sufyan.

00:28:10 --> 00:28:11

Says, Woe to you,

00:28:12 --> 00:28:13

O Abu Sufyan.

00:28:14 --> 00:28:15

By Allah,

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

Rasulullah

00:28:17 --> 00:28:19

salallahu alaihi wa sallam has made up his

00:28:19 --> 00:28:20

mind

00:28:20 --> 00:28:23

to do something that we cannot talk to

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

him.

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

He was basically saying that

00:28:27 --> 00:28:29

whenever Rasulullah he wasalam

00:28:29 --> 00:28:31

decides on a particular matter,

00:28:32 --> 00:28:33

we cannot go to him

00:28:34 --> 00:28:36

and ask him to change his mind.

00:28:37 --> 00:28:39

That's it. It's over with. Yes.

00:28:39 --> 00:28:42

We have something called shurah, but

00:28:42 --> 00:28:45

that is before the decision is made.

00:28:46 --> 00:28:48

After the decision is made,

00:28:48 --> 00:28:49

it's done.

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

Right? Once the Prophet makes a decision, that's

00:28:53 --> 00:28:54

it. As Allah

00:28:55 --> 00:28:56

commanded him.

00:28:57 --> 00:28:58

Fa idha aazamta

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

fatuwatqalarwa.

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

Once you have

00:29:01 --> 00:29:03

made your decision, that's it. Go ahead with

00:29:03 --> 00:29:05

it. Put your trust in Allah.

00:29:07 --> 00:29:08

Now,

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

Abu Sufyan is

00:29:12 --> 00:29:14

in a state of desperation.

00:29:15 --> 00:29:18

He is desperate to have something done. He

00:29:18 --> 00:29:21

does not want to leave Madinah empty handed.

00:29:23 --> 00:29:24

He's there in the house of Ali

00:29:25 --> 00:29:26

and he sees

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

Fatima

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

playing with her son Al Hassan.

00:29:32 --> 00:29:33

And he was a small child.

00:29:36 --> 00:29:38

Look at how low Abu Sufyan had gone.

00:29:39 --> 00:29:42

He turns to Fatima radiAllahu anha and says,

00:29:43 --> 00:29:44

O daughter of Muhammad,

00:29:46 --> 00:29:48

would you ask this son of yours

00:29:49 --> 00:29:50

to offer protection

00:29:52 --> 00:29:53

to 2 groups of people

00:29:54 --> 00:29:55

thus making him

00:29:55 --> 00:29:57

the leader of the Arabs until the end

00:29:57 --> 00:29:58

of time?

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

She said, by Allah,

00:30:02 --> 00:30:04

my son is too young to do such

00:30:04 --> 00:30:05

a thing.

00:30:05 --> 00:30:07

And no one can give protection

00:30:08 --> 00:30:10

in the presence of Rasulullah Meaning

00:30:13 --> 00:30:14

that if Rasulullah

00:30:17 --> 00:30:18

has decided

00:30:18 --> 00:30:19

to fight a people,

00:30:20 --> 00:30:22

we cannot go against him.

00:30:23 --> 00:30:24

No one can say

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

that I offer these people protection.

00:30:28 --> 00:30:31

O Messenger of Allah, don't attack them. No,

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

it doesn't work like that.

00:30:32 --> 00:30:34

And so you can see how desperate

00:30:35 --> 00:30:37

Abu Sufyan had become.

00:30:38 --> 00:30:39

And

00:30:39 --> 00:30:41

what is interesting to note here is that

00:30:42 --> 00:30:43

this is not the nature of Abu Sufyan.

00:30:45 --> 00:30:46

He was known to be

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

a wise,

00:30:49 --> 00:30:50

strong leader,

00:30:51 --> 00:30:53

but he was now acting foolishly.

00:30:55 --> 00:30:56

And it was clear that he was in

00:30:56 --> 00:30:58

a state of confusion and desperation.

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

Then Abu Sufyan said to Ali

00:31:03 --> 00:31:05

he said, O Abil Hassan,

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

I see that things have become very tough,

00:31:08 --> 00:31:09

So give me your advice.

00:31:11 --> 00:31:12

Ali

00:31:14 --> 00:31:16

he didn't really have anything to advise him

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

with.

00:31:17 --> 00:31:20

But he said, he said, By Allah,

00:31:20 --> 00:31:21

I know of nothing

00:31:22 --> 00:31:24

that will do you any good. There's nothing

00:31:24 --> 00:31:27

that, you know, will help me.

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

However,

00:31:29 --> 00:31:30

you are

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

the leader of Bani karani.

00:31:33 --> 00:31:35

So go to the masjid

00:31:36 --> 00:31:38

and offer protection to the people.

00:31:39 --> 00:31:40

Al ijar.

00:31:41 --> 00:31:42

And then

00:31:43 --> 00:31:45

get going back to your homeland.

00:31:47 --> 00:31:48

Abu Sufyan here says,

00:31:49 --> 00:31:50

do you think that that would do me

00:31:50 --> 00:31:51

any good?

00:31:52 --> 00:31:54

Rahaali raviallahu ani says,

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

no, I don't think so.

00:31:56 --> 00:31:58

But I don't really have anything else to

00:31:58 --> 00:31:59

tell you.

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

So even though Mahaliyah

00:32:03 --> 00:32:05

told him that,

00:32:05 --> 00:32:07

you know, there was nothing

00:32:08 --> 00:32:09

Abu Sufyan could do,

00:32:10 --> 00:32:13

but Abu Sufyan still, he followed his advice,

00:32:13 --> 00:32:15

and he went to the masjid,

00:32:15 --> 00:32:16

and he stood there,

00:32:18 --> 00:32:19

and he said,

00:32:19 --> 00:32:21

I grant protection to the people.

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

Now just some background on this idea of

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

ijari,

00:32:28 --> 00:32:31

offering protection. What does it mean? In the

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

days of Jahilia,

00:32:34 --> 00:32:35

men who were

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

leaders of their people,

00:32:39 --> 00:32:42

They would give their word in front of

00:32:42 --> 00:32:44

the people and say, I

00:32:45 --> 00:32:46

protect so and so.

00:32:47 --> 00:32:49

So and so is under my protection.

00:32:50 --> 00:32:52

And because of his position

00:32:54 --> 00:32:56

or his honor among the people or because

00:32:56 --> 00:32:58

of the strength of His tribe,

00:32:59 --> 00:33:00

the people would accept that

00:33:01 --> 00:33:02

protection

00:33:02 --> 00:33:04

and they would not go against Him.

00:33:04 --> 00:33:06

They would honor His word.

00:33:07 --> 00:33:09

This was part of their tribal tradition. So

00:33:11 --> 00:33:13

Abu Sufyan, he did this in the Masjid.

00:33:13 --> 00:33:14

He went to the Masjid

00:33:15 --> 00:33:16

in Madina

00:33:17 --> 00:33:18

and he said this.

00:33:18 --> 00:33:20

Now the question is,

00:33:22 --> 00:33:24

who is Abu Sufyan in Madira?

00:33:26 --> 00:33:28

No one cares about him.

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

Yes,

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

he is the leader

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

in Mecca.

00:33:35 --> 00:33:36

But in Medina,

00:33:37 --> 00:33:38

the leader is Muhammad

00:33:40 --> 00:33:42

and Abu Sufyan is a nobody.

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

Right?

00:33:43 --> 00:33:44

So

00:33:44 --> 00:33:45

whoever was there,

00:33:46 --> 00:33:47

they just completely

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

ignored

00:33:49 --> 00:33:50

Abu Sufyan.

00:33:51 --> 00:33:52

So now Abu Sufyan,

00:33:53 --> 00:33:54

he leaves Madinah,

00:33:55 --> 00:33:57

and he goes back to Madqam.

00:33:59 --> 00:34:00

He tells

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

the people of his journey.

00:34:03 --> 00:34:04

He said,

00:34:05 --> 00:34:07

I met Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam and

00:34:07 --> 00:34:08

spoke to him,

00:34:08 --> 00:34:10

but he didn't give me an answer.

00:34:11 --> 00:34:13

Then I went to Abu Bakr,

00:34:14 --> 00:34:16

and I didn't find any good with him

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

either.

00:34:17 --> 00:34:19

Then I went to Ummah

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

and I found him to be the most

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

hostile enemy.

00:34:24 --> 00:34:25

Then I went to Ali

00:34:26 --> 00:34:28

and I found him to be the most

00:34:28 --> 00:34:31

lenient among the people, the most the softest

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

of them.

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

And he gave me advice to do something

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

and I did it.

00:34:36 --> 00:34:37

But I don't

00:34:37 --> 00:34:39

know whether it's gonna do me any good

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

or not.

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

They asked him,

00:34:41 --> 00:34:43

What did he tell you to do?

00:34:44 --> 00:34:45

He said,

00:34:45 --> 00:34:48

he told me to go and offer protection

00:34:48 --> 00:34:49

to

00:34:49 --> 00:34:50

the people,

00:34:50 --> 00:34:52

and I did it.

00:34:53 --> 00:34:54

They asked him,

00:34:55 --> 00:34:55

did

00:34:55 --> 00:34:58

Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam approve of him?

00:34:59 --> 00:35:00

Did did the Prophet

00:35:01 --> 00:35:03

So law alaihi wasalam give the green light

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

for this?

00:35:04 --> 00:35:05

He said no.

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

So then they said to him,

00:35:10 --> 00:35:12

They said to him, Woe to you.

00:35:13 --> 00:35:14

Rahali,

00:35:14 --> 00:35:16

he did nothing but play with you.

00:35:17 --> 00:35:19

He made a fool out of you.

00:35:20 --> 00:35:21

And that's exactly

00:35:22 --> 00:35:23

what ended up happening.

00:35:24 --> 00:35:25

Aali radiya wagwan,

00:35:25 --> 00:35:27

he made a fool of

00:35:27 --> 00:35:28

Abu Sufyan.

00:35:30 --> 00:35:31

And so so

00:35:32 --> 00:35:34

that was the end of it.

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

Abu Sufyan,

00:35:37 --> 00:35:38

he came to this dead end,

00:35:39 --> 00:35:40

and

00:35:41 --> 00:35:42

the attempts

00:35:44 --> 00:35:46

of Quraysh to patch up whatever

00:35:47 --> 00:35:50

they could of the damage caused by

00:35:50 --> 00:35:52

Ben Waqqah, their ally.

00:35:52 --> 00:35:54

And those men of Quraysh who had helped

00:35:54 --> 00:35:55

them,

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

it all failed.

00:35:58 --> 00:35:59

And now,

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

Rasulullah

00:36:01 --> 00:36:04

sallallahu alaihi wasallam had made up his mind

00:36:06 --> 00:36:07

to advance

00:36:07 --> 00:36:08

onto Mecca

00:36:09 --> 00:36:11

for what will be one of the most

00:36:11 --> 00:36:12

major

00:36:12 --> 00:36:13

events

00:36:14 --> 00:36:15

of the sigil yet,

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

and that

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

is Fatimaqa,

00:36:18 --> 00:36:19

the conquest

00:36:20 --> 00:36:21

of Mecca.

00:36:21 --> 00:36:22

That we will

00:36:22 --> 00:36:24

start talking about next week, Insha'Allah.

00:36:27 --> 00:36:28

So some of the lessons that we learned

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

from

00:36:30 --> 00:36:32

the violation of the treaty.

00:36:33 --> 00:36:34

1st of all,

00:36:38 --> 00:36:39

a treaty

00:36:39 --> 00:36:41

can be considered broken

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

even if

00:36:43 --> 00:36:45

some people break it.

00:36:47 --> 00:36:49

We see how the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa

00:36:49 --> 00:36:50

sallam

00:36:50 --> 00:36:51

considered

00:36:51 --> 00:36:54

the Treaty of Hudaybiyah to have been violated,

00:36:54 --> 00:36:55

to have been breached

00:36:56 --> 00:36:57

by this act

00:36:58 --> 00:37:01

which was carried out by only one man.

00:37:02 --> 00:37:03

You know, this Muawiyah bin Nawfaladu'ih.

00:37:06 --> 00:37:07

All the other

00:37:08 --> 00:37:11

chiefs of Ben Gurkur, as we mentioned, they

00:37:11 --> 00:37:12

refused to participate.

00:37:12 --> 00:37:14

And they even told him to stop.

00:37:15 --> 00:37:16

But nonetheless,

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

Rasulullah

00:37:20 --> 00:37:21

still considered

00:37:22 --> 00:37:24

the treaty to have been broken.

00:37:25 --> 00:37:26

And he declared

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

war

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

against Quraysh as a result.

00:37:31 --> 00:37:32

And so we take from this

00:37:34 --> 00:37:36

what we learned from this,

00:37:36 --> 00:37:38

the lesson that we learned from this is

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

that

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

not all of the population

00:37:42 --> 00:37:43

of a country

00:37:44 --> 00:37:46

needs to be supported

00:37:46 --> 00:37:49

of what their government does for it to

00:37:49 --> 00:37:50

be considered

00:37:50 --> 00:37:53

a breach of covenant between them and themselves.

00:37:55 --> 00:37:57

For example, if people come out on the

00:37:57 --> 00:37:58

streets

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

to demonstrate against their government

00:38:02 --> 00:38:04

like these anti war protesters.

00:38:05 --> 00:38:07

Or if some of the government

00:38:08 --> 00:38:11

and elected officials are against war,

00:38:12 --> 00:38:14

as long as part of the government

00:38:15 --> 00:38:18

has taken the official stance of attacking

00:38:18 --> 00:38:20

the Muslims or a Muslim country,

00:38:20 --> 00:38:22

then the leader of that Muslim country

00:38:23 --> 00:38:25

has the right to announce war

00:38:26 --> 00:38:27

and to fight against this nation.

00:38:28 --> 00:38:29

He can't say,

00:38:29 --> 00:38:32

well, the country is split up. Some are

00:38:32 --> 00:38:34

for, some are against. We're not gonna attack

00:38:34 --> 00:38:36

them. Right? No, it doesn't work like that.

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

And we learned this from

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

we learned this from

00:38:41 --> 00:38:44

how the Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam responded

00:38:44 --> 00:38:46

even though it was one man

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

who broke

00:38:48 --> 00:38:49

the treaty

00:38:49 --> 00:38:50

and all the rest,

00:38:51 --> 00:38:52

they were abiding by the treaty

00:38:53 --> 00:38:54

and

00:38:55 --> 00:38:58

even Quraysh. And Abu Sufyan said, we didn't

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

do anything.

00:38:59 --> 00:39:01

It was Banu Bakr, but

00:39:02 --> 00:39:04

the treaty has been broken.

00:39:05 --> 00:39:07

The second lesson that we learned

00:39:08 --> 00:39:10

is the importance of

00:39:10 --> 00:39:11

keeping

00:39:11 --> 00:39:12

a secret

00:39:12 --> 00:39:13

as a secret.

00:39:17 --> 00:39:19

And so a secret is a secret, and

00:39:19 --> 00:39:20

you cannot tell it to anyone.

00:39:21 --> 00:39:24

We don't really know whether Rasulullah

00:39:24 --> 00:39:27

SallAllahu Alaihi Wasallam told his wife, A'isha radiAllahu

00:39:27 --> 00:39:29

anha of his plans.

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

Exactly.

00:39:31 --> 00:39:34

But what we do see is how Aisha

00:39:34 --> 00:39:36

radiAllahu anha dealt with the situation

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

and did not disclose

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

anything about whatever she knew about his plans

00:39:42 --> 00:39:43

to her own father,

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

Abu Bakr,

00:39:46 --> 00:39:48

who was also very close to the Prophet

00:39:48 --> 00:39:50

Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.

00:39:51 --> 00:39:53

There's no one who the Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi

00:39:53 --> 00:39:54

Wasallam was closer to

00:39:56 --> 00:39:58

than Abu Bakr. But yet,

00:39:59 --> 00:40:02

even then she did not disclose any information

00:40:02 --> 00:40:04

that was not necessary for him to know.

00:40:05 --> 00:40:06

Right?

00:40:07 --> 00:40:10

Because here we have a situation where

00:40:10 --> 00:40:11

the security

00:40:12 --> 00:40:14

of the Muslims could be at risk,

00:40:15 --> 00:40:16

could be in danger

00:40:16 --> 00:40:18

if any information is leaked out to the

00:40:18 --> 00:40:19

enemy.

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

And so somebody who does not need to

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

know about certain information,

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

that's it. He doesn't need to know, and

00:40:27 --> 00:40:28

we don't have to tell them.

00:40:29 --> 00:40:32

And so Aisha radiAllahu anha, she didn't tell

00:40:32 --> 00:40:35

anyone, not even her own father.

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

And this point is very important because

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

a lot of times we tend to

00:40:41 --> 00:40:42

tell a certain someone

00:40:43 --> 00:40:44

everything just because

00:40:45 --> 00:40:46

we trust them.

00:40:47 --> 00:40:48

Right?

00:40:49 --> 00:40:50

But even then,

00:40:52 --> 00:40:54

Islam teaches we're not allowed to disclose

00:40:54 --> 00:40:55

someone else's secret

00:40:56 --> 00:40:58

even if you trust the person.

00:40:59 --> 00:41:01

And so if you do, you are breaking

00:41:01 --> 00:41:02

your trust,

00:41:02 --> 00:41:04

the trust that someone had in you.

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

Anyways, in one narration,

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

it mentions

00:41:09 --> 00:41:11

that Abu Bakr radiAllahu and then he went

00:41:11 --> 00:41:12

to the Prophet

00:41:14 --> 00:41:15

and asked him and Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa

00:41:15 --> 00:41:17

sallam ended up telling him

00:41:17 --> 00:41:18

of

00:41:18 --> 00:41:19

his plans.

00:41:21 --> 00:41:23

The third lesson that we learned

00:41:25 --> 00:41:26

is the loyalty

00:41:27 --> 00:41:28

of the companions.

00:41:29 --> 00:41:31

The loyalty they had to

00:41:31 --> 00:41:32

the Prophet sallallahu

00:41:32 --> 00:41:33

alaihi wasall.

00:41:35 --> 00:41:36

We see this

00:41:36 --> 00:41:37

in how

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

Khadibah

00:41:40 --> 00:41:42

dealt with her own father

00:41:43 --> 00:41:45

and how she spoke to him

00:41:45 --> 00:41:47

when he wanted to come and sit

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

on the rug or the mattress of the

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

Prophet

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

Who was he?

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

He was

00:41:56 --> 00:41:57

her own father.

00:41:58 --> 00:41:59

But yet,

00:42:00 --> 00:42:01

like many of the other companions,

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

she had a great sense of

00:42:06 --> 00:42:07

This

00:42:09 --> 00:42:11

concept in our deen

00:42:12 --> 00:42:14

of having loyalty to Allah and His Messenger

00:42:14 --> 00:42:15

and the believers,

00:42:16 --> 00:42:18

and having enmity with

00:42:19 --> 00:42:20

the kuffar,

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

where

00:42:23 --> 00:42:25

their religion and the Prophet

00:42:26 --> 00:42:28

was a red line for them.

00:42:29 --> 00:42:30

And the dignity of Rasulullah

00:42:32 --> 00:42:33

and his honor

00:42:33 --> 00:42:35

came before the dignity

00:42:35 --> 00:42:36

of a kafir

00:42:37 --> 00:42:38

even if it was

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

you know, their own mother and father.

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

And this should not come as a surprise.

00:42:47 --> 00:42:48

This should not come as

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

a surprise

00:42:50 --> 00:42:51

or

00:42:52 --> 00:42:53

as being unexpected

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

from

00:42:54 --> 00:42:55

someone like Habib

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

Why?

00:42:57 --> 00:42:59

She was one of the earliest Muslims.

00:43:02 --> 00:43:04

Right? She had migrated to Abyssinia

00:43:05 --> 00:43:06

with the early Muslims.

00:43:07 --> 00:43:09

And then from there she migrated to Midian.

00:43:11 --> 00:43:14

She was deeply immersed in Islam.

00:43:16 --> 00:43:18

Having cut off her ties with Jahiliya

00:43:20 --> 00:43:22

and, you know, her own people, and

00:43:23 --> 00:43:26

their customs, and their norms, and their traditions.

00:43:28 --> 00:43:31

Here she had not seen her own father

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

for

00:43:32 --> 00:43:34

nearly 16 years.

00:43:35 --> 00:43:37

Right? Because this entire time

00:43:37 --> 00:43:39

she had left. She went to Abyssinia,

00:43:40 --> 00:43:42

and then she came directly to Medina.

00:43:42 --> 00:43:44

She hadn't gone back to Mecca. She had

00:43:44 --> 00:43:46

not seen her father for 16 years.

00:43:46 --> 00:43:47

And

00:43:48 --> 00:43:50

when she finally meet him and he arrives,

00:43:53 --> 00:43:55

She sees a man in front of her

00:43:57 --> 00:43:57

who

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

she

00:43:59 --> 00:44:02

sees as not deserving any respect or honor.

00:44:02 --> 00:44:03

But rather

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

she sees him

00:44:05 --> 00:44:08

as a leader of kufr and an enemy

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

of Islam

00:44:09 --> 00:44:10

who for years stood

00:44:11 --> 00:44:13

in the face of the Dawah and fought

00:44:13 --> 00:44:16

against Muslims. And so this should teach us

00:44:16 --> 00:44:17

a huge lesson.

00:44:18 --> 00:44:20

You know, this is the kind of alwala

00:44:20 --> 00:44:21

walbarar

00:44:22 --> 00:44:24

that we Muslims need to display

00:44:25 --> 00:44:26

with the kafar

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

even if

00:44:28 --> 00:44:30

they aren't close to us.

00:44:32 --> 00:44:34

The final lesson that we learned

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

is the importance of

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

displaying

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

a show

00:44:41 --> 00:44:42

of force and strength.

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

And so if the Muslims today

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

would get over the belief that

00:44:50 --> 00:44:52

we are weak

00:44:53 --> 00:44:54

and

00:44:54 --> 00:44:56

we can't really do anything.

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

The ones

00:44:59 --> 00:45:01

who are bombing the Muslims today,

00:45:02 --> 00:45:03

they will

00:45:03 --> 00:45:04

come

00:45:04 --> 00:45:06

and be like Abu Sufyan,

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

and they will come and beg the Muslims

00:45:09 --> 00:45:10

for peace.

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

But

00:45:13 --> 00:45:14

in order for that to happen,

00:45:15 --> 00:45:17

the Muslims need to get over this belief

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

that we are weak.

00:45:20 --> 00:45:21

We are incapable

00:45:22 --> 00:45:23

of defending ourselves.

00:45:25 --> 00:45:27

Look at how powerful the enemy is.

00:45:28 --> 00:45:30

Remember how Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:45:31 --> 00:45:32

reminded the believers

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

after

00:45:36 --> 00:45:38

In which they suffered the loss they suffered.

00:45:40 --> 00:45:43

Look at how Allah reminded them to remain

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

strong.

00:45:52 --> 00:45:53

Do not weaken

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

nor grieve.

00:45:55 --> 00:45:56

Yes,

00:45:56 --> 00:45:57

you suffer

00:45:58 --> 00:46:00

but that doesn't mean you have to now

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

become weak.

00:46:03 --> 00:46:04

Allah says,

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

Do not weaken nor grieve

00:46:07 --> 00:46:08

for you will be victorious.

00:46:09 --> 00:46:11

You will have the upper hand.

00:46:13 --> 00:46:16

You will have the upper hand as long

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

as we're believers.

00:46:18 --> 00:46:20

And so even if we are defeated

00:46:21 --> 00:46:23

and we suffer setbacks,

00:46:24 --> 00:46:26

we are still commanded by Allah

00:46:27 --> 00:46:28

to stay strong

00:46:29 --> 00:46:30

and not falter.

00:46:31 --> 00:46:32

If we do that,

00:46:32 --> 00:46:34

then Allah will eventually

00:46:35 --> 00:46:36

grant us victory.

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

And that is exactly what happened after

00:46:40 --> 00:46:41

after Uhud.

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

From then onwards, what did we see in

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

this era?

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

From after Uhf,

00:46:49 --> 00:46:50

we saw that from then onwards,

00:46:51 --> 00:46:52

it was just uphill.

00:46:54 --> 00:46:56

The Muslims were just winning

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

after that.

00:46:58 --> 00:47:00

They weren't suffering any losses after that.

00:47:02 --> 00:47:03

Why?

00:47:03 --> 00:47:05

Because the Muslims stayed strong.

00:47:05 --> 00:47:07

They didn't say, oh, we've lost,

00:47:07 --> 00:47:08

and now

00:47:09 --> 00:47:10

they become inferior.

00:47:11 --> 00:47:14

They say our enemy is stronger than us.

00:47:14 --> 00:47:16

No. No. No. No. And now this was

00:47:16 --> 00:47:19

the climax of that. This was the peak

00:47:19 --> 00:47:20

where Abu Sufyan

00:47:21 --> 00:47:23

was coming in a state of desperation

00:47:23 --> 00:47:24

and humiliation.

00:47:27 --> 00:47:29

But we cannot rush things.

00:47:30 --> 00:47:31

Allah has destined

00:47:32 --> 00:47:33

things to happen in a certain way.

00:47:34 --> 00:47:36

And so we need to allow the Qadr

00:47:36 --> 00:47:38

of Allah to run its due course.

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

Eventually,

00:47:41 --> 00:47:43

the Muslims will be victorious.

00:47:43 --> 00:47:44

It will happen.

00:47:45 --> 00:47:46

But we need to persist

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

in showing strength

00:47:48 --> 00:47:50

and remaining steadfast

00:47:50 --> 00:47:52

to our principles and

00:47:52 --> 00:47:53

not

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

falter

00:47:54 --> 00:47:55

or compromise,

00:47:57 --> 00:47:58

which is what we see Muslims doing today

00:47:58 --> 00:47:59

unfortunately.

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

Right?

00:48:01 --> 00:48:04

And so when the Muslims of today keep

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

on,

00:48:05 --> 00:48:06

when we keep on feeding

00:48:07 --> 00:48:08

the Ummah with this idea that,

00:48:09 --> 00:48:11

you know, we are

00:48:11 --> 00:48:12

in a state of weakness

00:48:13 --> 00:48:16

and we're uncapable of fighting against our enemies,

00:48:16 --> 00:48:18

that the enemies are stronger,

00:48:19 --> 00:48:20

and we don't stand a chance,

00:48:21 --> 00:48:23

and that we should compare our state to

00:48:23 --> 00:48:24

the Muslims

00:48:25 --> 00:48:26

when they were in Mecca.

00:48:27 --> 00:48:28

The Meccan stage of the dawah,

00:48:29 --> 00:48:31

where they were told not to fight back

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

because

00:48:33 --> 00:48:35

we're defenseless and we don't have the power.

00:48:36 --> 00:48:37

Many Muslims today are saying this.

00:48:38 --> 00:48:41

They're saying we are in the Makkan stage

00:48:41 --> 00:48:43

which means we don't fight. We shouldn't show

00:48:43 --> 00:48:44

any strength.

00:48:45 --> 00:48:46

And so as long as

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

these concepts, these ideas,

00:48:49 --> 00:48:51

we are filling the Muslims with this fear,

00:48:52 --> 00:48:54

and inferiority, and weakness,

00:48:55 --> 00:48:56

and humiliations

00:48:57 --> 00:48:59

that, you know, programs the Muslims to be

00:48:59 --> 00:49:00

weak,

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

and accept oppression,

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

then as long as, you know, we are

00:49:05 --> 00:49:07

doing this, then we're not gonna get

00:49:07 --> 00:49:08

get anywhere.

00:49:08 --> 00:49:10

We're not gonna get anywhere.

00:49:10 --> 00:49:12

With that, we come to the end of

00:49:12 --> 00:49:13

today's session.

00:49:14 --> 00:49:15

And Insha'Allah

00:49:15 --> 00:49:16

we will continue,

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

next week.

00:49:18 --> 00:49:19

Again, at the same time,

00:49:20 --> 00:49:22

we start an hour before salatulmuhrib

00:49:22 --> 00:49:24

and then we continue until salatulmuhrib.

00:49:24 --> 00:49:27

So we'll continue next week insha'Allaham ta'ala.
