Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah

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

wahoo luxury Cara

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

Mohammed Abdullah who was

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

Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala Sayidina Muhammad in fille de now Phil

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

of Allah, Allah Allah, Allah within

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

the length of

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

45 to 50 minutes will give you some

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


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

to understand

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

chapter eight,

00:01:02--> 00:01:06

which is called an unfair Sora pool unfair.

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


00:01:10--> 00:01:13

is the spoils of war.

00:01:16--> 00:01:17


00:01:19--> 00:01:25

things which the winning army in a battle would gain

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

from the enemy

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


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

Subhanallah before Islam,

00:01:37--> 00:01:40

the tradition that you would burn it,

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

you would actually place it in an altar

00:01:45--> 00:01:54

and a fire will come down, if the work of this army been accepted by Allah and it will burn so nobody benefit from it.

00:01:56--> 00:02:03

But this has changed with the Muslims, it became lawful for the Muslims

00:02:04--> 00:02:15

to take possession of it, and that is why the whole chapter started with Yes, lunak and lm fell, they asked you about the spoils of war.

00:02:18--> 00:02:33

Again as well, we are not explaining the surah word by word. Just a reminder, this is a type of C, which we call it a deaf Cyril metacity thematic Deaf seeds of the soul. We look for a theme

00:02:35--> 00:02:44

and normally we trigger the theme we call it the objective. That is why we call it objective based halfsies

00:02:45--> 00:02:57

or the higher aim of the surah. And we strive to understand the surah in light of that higher aim. Now how do you trigger that aim?

00:02:59--> 00:03:10

From the name of the soul, the soul is in the soul, the time when the sutra was revealed, the subject matter of the soul.

00:03:13--> 00:03:14

This is how

00:03:16--> 00:03:28

now the theme which we triggered means of success. How do you be successful, not necessarily again in a battlefield, rather, in your life.

00:03:29--> 00:03:31

There are spiritual means

00:03:33--> 00:03:39

and there are material means a combination of the two will make you successful.

00:03:40--> 00:03:42

Here's what we have in sha Allah

00:03:43--> 00:03:51

Subhana Allah the soulcal and falen Toba will witness the end of the first third of the Messiah.

00:03:53--> 00:04:13

So I will recap for you. What we learned so far in brief, just on two slides, imagine Tonight you will understand shortly DACA What does it talk about? Milan in Nisa ilma ada, Elana alar off and the landfill

00:04:15--> 00:04:19

introduction to sorrowful and foul the higher aim of the sole means of success.

00:04:21--> 00:04:29

Here is why historical background this surah dealt with two major events in Islam.

00:04:30--> 00:04:32

Hey Dre and Betty embedded

00:04:34--> 00:04:40

and sub subjects in sha Allah in connection with the main objective in sha Allah

00:04:41--> 00:04:44

fabricare What was it Bukhara is about

00:04:46--> 00:04:48

Allah subhana wa tada in Surah Baqarah

00:04:50--> 00:04:56

he presented the curriculum, the guidance to us or at least the foundation of the guidance

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

which we as an oral

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

must implement to lead humanity

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

to achieve the best in this world and the hereafter and that's the one difference between our leadership and the leadership of non Muslim. You see a non Muslim leading the world thereafter will enjoy this world. But we complement this with what

00:05:20--> 00:05:24

with the hereafter and that's why Allah made us that this Toma

00:05:26--> 00:05:48

now also surah dakara told us how to deal with this guidance you must make this deal of the unseen he cannot question the unseen he cannot try to employ your intellect to understand it and compliance regarding the commands. That's what sort of Baccarat is about. Now after you have shown

00:05:49--> 00:06:14

the curriculum, the guidance and how to deal with it, now your job is to be steadfast and I am wanting to do this. So that so that sort of deal with a backfill awareness. Imagine this. Allah subhana wa tada sent to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a delegation, Christian delegation called na jalon imagine they came to convert the prophet to Christianity.

00:06:15--> 00:06:17

They came for that that's the delegation of La Jolla

00:06:18--> 00:06:40

and the whole 120 verses of thought Allah and Milan deals with the subject. Come on, be steadfast be firm. You'll learn the truth. And Hakuna Rob big fella minimum theory don't ever question it. Don't ever doubt it. Of course the second half of the surah talks about being steadfast in the area of the commands.

00:06:41--> 00:07:00

Because the curriculum has two parts two components unseen and commands. unseen you make this Do you believe it? You don't you don't doubt it? commands you say what Santa Ana upon what happened in the Muslims did not say Santa Dhawan and that is why the Muslims were defeated

00:07:01--> 00:07:13

in this battle, then came in in Nyssa. So para la provided a sign a sign that you are successful and righteous leader

00:07:14--> 00:07:16

that the Muslims are what are the signs?

00:07:17--> 00:07:27

Are you mindful of the rights of the oppressed the weak the minority groups in your community? That's why should a Tunisia focus more than orphans

00:07:28--> 00:07:34

on women because women were oppressed in the Bri Islam Islamic era

00:07:36--> 00:07:49

the minority groups the Christian the Jews, so assign that you are successful leader that you're not violating the rights of these oppressed people in your community.

00:07:50--> 00:07:59

Now sort of marry that so Pamela, Kim and turn converted these different rights into actual contracts

00:08:01--> 00:08:03

between us on a loss of Hana with

00:08:04--> 00:08:18

the contract with Allah the way the contract with the messenger his obedience and to follow Him and to follow his son the contracts towards the guidance that was the offender compliance

00:08:19--> 00:08:20

then came in and I am

00:08:22--> 00:08:28

to tell you about the most important contract of of all these contracts which is the

00:08:30--> 00:08:51

Al anon address the first and the most important right and covenant which is we agree to an established with a law which is the heat to single him out as the only load to single him out regarding his divine essence action names, attributes, and consequently to worship Him alone.

00:08:53--> 00:09:02

Then the last one which we studied last time, make up your mind are you decided, are you still wishy washy?

00:09:04--> 00:09:07

Because Listen, you're gonna have to make a jeweler

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

that's the next Shura.

00:09:12--> 00:09:14

You may have to fight a battle here.

00:09:15--> 00:09:27

You can be halfway decided that's why a lot of teamwork. A lot of people that message you know that and I made the message crystal clear to you now, are you deciding

00:09:29--> 00:09:30

Are you committed

00:09:31--> 00:09:37

or not? He can be wishy washy and that's why the whole show is the people who fought

00:09:38--> 00:09:41

Who are the people a lot of people who are what

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

the Senate and did what

00:09:47--> 00:09:52

their hassanal did not take to Gen them to gender and sex was not enough to take them to hell.

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

They were in the middle.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

Don't be like that. Make up your mind.

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

Because guess what will unfold the next chapter? We're gonna deal with a battle here. Are you ready?

00:10:08--> 00:10:09

You see that's how

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

they look so Russell and fall comes in handy to present to us the means of success

00:10:17--> 00:10:51

in the face of the upcoming challenges which we had to make up our minds to face so it will NFL presented both I'm sorry there is a typo there spiritual and material means basically once we received the curriculum decided to make the steep so that the Dakota was steadfast in lm Ron serve the others various rights in ENISA. Again, I'm just recapping this again, I'm just saying it in a different way. In May the l&r dinner and fell comes and says what how to be successful.

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


00:10:57--> 00:11:07

there are two things here that I want you to pay attention to, in order to to get to the essence of what I want to share with you today, which is

00:11:09--> 00:11:14

first of all struggle and fail, talks about the spoils of war.

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

And like I said a minute ago, initially,

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

if you fight for the cause of Allah

00:11:25--> 00:11:27

in a battle, you're not supposed to take anything.

00:11:30--> 00:11:35

What they do is they gather, they collect the spoils, they bought it on an altar.

00:11:37--> 00:11:42

And if the work was accepted, a fire will come down to burn it.

00:11:45--> 00:11:48

If it was not accepted, the fire is not going to come down.

00:11:49--> 00:12:03

And who did this you if you actually read the story of fuchsia, you shamoun anyone knows that they put the things on the altar, and then the fire did not come down. So you shall look that there was a somebody stole something.

00:12:05--> 00:12:09

And finally, the some guy was stole two golden

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

heads of a calf.

00:12:13--> 00:12:16

And when he booted on with the spoils of war

00:12:17--> 00:12:27

Subhanallah it was taken care of. But now with the Muslims, it was a little bit different. The surah takes its name from the first verse which is an emphatic

00:12:28--> 00:12:45

it's surah number 88 according to the order of the revelation, and it is madonie it surah number eight in according to the order of the Messiah, it's a matter of Sora revealed soon after the Battle of whether the second year after the surah has 75 verses

00:12:48--> 00:13:03

the first battle between Muslims and non Muslims. Since it contains a detailed and comprehensive review of the battle, it appears the most that most probably it was revealed all at once. And most probably the Sora was revealed all at once.

00:13:05--> 00:13:06


00:13:08--> 00:13:10

here are your two means of success in this world.

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

There is a divine intervention in our lives, that divine intervention and this what you call the spiritual means you must believe that

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

look at this verse.

00:13:27--> 00:13:34

Woman, Allah ma who in sha Allah Takuma in de PUE buku.

00:13:36--> 00:13:41

There is no victory accept from Allah. Victory comes from Allah.

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

You must believe that in your heart.

00:13:47--> 00:13:55

But for you to get that victory, you must seek the means you must pursue the possible material means in your hand.

00:13:56--> 00:14:41

And normally what we have two extremes regarding the subject there are people who have so much reliance, that they abandon the means and the people who believe in the means. And they forget about Allah subhanho wa Taala that this surah talks about the balance between the two that your success if you balance the two, your heart believes that victory will come to you from Allah. But for you to get that victory, you must cherish the lows and you will find this in the Battle of weather and in the subject of HR. You will find it and I'll show you some things which happened which will show both in Sharma

00:14:43--> 00:14:53

Okay, be careful here not just in the battlefield. Like I said a minute ago this could apply to your work day to day lives. day to day lives.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

Remember, a lot of you have to take you have

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

To make up your mind you have to make up your mind because likewise I'm telling you even at this time if you make up your mind you want to commit to Islam

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

you want to face it it's not gonna be easy

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

for you wishy washy will not run away

00:15:18--> 00:15:30

so look the Muslims at the time they were asked to make up their mind because guess what, they they have to migrate a lot of the previous chapter remember the previous chapter came to ask you to do

00:15:31--> 00:15:40

because now you may have to leave your town. Not only this, you may have to receive people and share half what you have with them.

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

That's a commitment

00:15:43--> 00:15:59

is the first time in history for that. You know, normally people migrate to people with a one visa like the Europeans so we're the one Muslims here you know, but it's the first time in history that people inviting people come to our place never happened in history and it will never happen again that you come to our town

00:16:01--> 00:16:13

because you're not come to our town to work or to buy houses I mean in Colorado here they made the marijuana illegal to to attract the people. No, come to my house to work.

00:16:15--> 00:16:17

To share half before I have

00:16:18--> 00:16:23

to take half what you hear Runa I'm forcing him well, how can I be

00:16:25--> 00:16:27

the key

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

for you Blitz deal with the Hydra.

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

The Hydra event it was by all majors, a turning point in the history of Islam

00:16:42--> 00:16:48

transformed Islam from an individual movement into a systematic movement.

00:16:50--> 00:16:58

This certainly explains why the Muslims during the time of Omar chose this event to mark what

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

the Hijri calendar

00:17:01--> 00:17:14

because this would change Islam. He says upon Allah, Allah was the weakest moment in the life of this religion. He had the the turning point.

00:17:16--> 00:17:21

Remember your weakest? If you look at it in a positive way you can

00:17:23--> 00:17:24

can take you up

00:17:25--> 00:17:39

the hegira event displayed prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam skills in planning as well as putting his whole trust in Allah. Again, remember, I'm trying to explain the subject here.

00:17:40--> 00:17:51

How do you balance the divine intervention in your life with what with the means the hijra was an example of this.

00:17:53--> 00:18:03

The healer event it was a pattern for the oma and this pattern. We will see the Prophet sallallahu Sallam full trust in Allah. Meanwhile,

00:18:05--> 00:18:12

cherishing the material means natural law set by Allah subhana wa Tada. And that's what the Muslims need to understand. You have to have both

00:18:14--> 00:18:15

to be a halifa.

00:18:17--> 00:18:25

And remember when I told you about the story of Adam, when Allah said I'm gonna create Adam and Allah, Allah to add and the names?

00:18:26--> 00:18:27

That's the Nils

00:18:33--> 00:18:57

isms leading to the hedgerow. I think you guys all know that but we'll rush through it. The early Muslims in our house labor security, tortured by the big in Croatia, Muslims were outnumbered and many of them were slaves, with no power to detail the persecutors, the prophet peace be upon him utilize the season of Hajj, okay, here's something that you need to pay attention to.

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


00:19:02--> 00:19:15

the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam died, the profit loss his protection, because who took over as the head of Benny Hashem who this who became the leader,

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

I would have to cover so imagine now, who was protecting the prophets of Salaam Abu lahab became.

00:19:26--> 00:19:33

So the prophets of Salaam knew that there is no place in Mecca for him. So he would do something very interesting.

00:19:34--> 00:19:38

During the season of how he would utilize the time by going to the tents

00:19:40--> 00:19:53

and the Messenger of Allah, I was asked to convey a message that people hear or not, can you take me to town Please, can you take me to your town? So I can convey this message?

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

My whole life, you know, going selling yourself, you know making the profit to do this

00:20:01--> 00:20:04

Guess what was happening in year three.

00:20:05--> 00:20:06

At the time,

00:20:07--> 00:20:11

two factions fighting one another for years.

00:20:12--> 00:20:15

aos has run two tribes.

00:20:16--> 00:20:18

And guess who was feeding that?

00:20:21--> 00:20:23

Because they were selling the weapons very similar to now.

00:20:25--> 00:20:26

Because they used to make the weapons.

00:20:28--> 00:20:30

So now

00:20:32--> 00:20:47

also, these various tribes, they used to fight with them. And one of the things which they used to say, Listen, this is the time we're waiting for a messenger who will come out from the children of Israel is when they need us.

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

And we're gonna fight you, Arabs.

00:20:54--> 00:21:22

This is why By the way, this explains why the most learn Jewish rabbis went to Medina because Medina had the description of the town where the Prophet is going to migrate to not to be rude to my greeter just to show you the emphasis of this. And that's why they live there, by nikolina, cop and in the high bar on the others, and they tell you, those were the most learn of them.

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

So they used to threaten who

00:21:26--> 00:21:29

the people of yesterday were waiting for a message.

00:21:31--> 00:21:35

So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stopped by the tent in Minar

00:21:37--> 00:21:39

and he said, I'm a messenger of Allah.

00:21:40--> 00:21:44

And I want to go somewhere where I can convey this message do you remember what

00:21:46--> 00:21:49

they recalled what Benny Hill been telling them? I said,

00:21:50--> 00:22:02

nothing's happened yet what sometimes in a very natural way. They said, You know what? Let's give him support first before Berryessa in so he will be ours now. That was the initial What?

00:22:03--> 00:22:30

But later on, we know that they became devout Muslims. So this is the events which led to the lack of a one and two and then we'll go over them quickly. Insha Allah, the prophet SAW Selim use utilize the season of Hajj to give Dawa calling people to Islam. Many out of tribes with comfortable forum Hi, Jan hombre, you know that the ritual of Hydra was already established stablished by who? Brahim and it may even be Islam.

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

People used to come and perform Hajj.

00:22:36--> 00:23:13

Meanwhile, the people of Africa were fighting with each other for long years I was an hazaragi. Those are the names of the two major tribes. They're the two big tribes of the FF, who occupied themselves with long term enmity. It seemed that there were no solution, no healing. Because of this situation, they became so attracted to the last messenger, which they was alerted by the Jewish tribes and the 12 years of the Prophet mission. 12 men initially heard the message, they accepted it.

00:23:14--> 00:23:26

Then the Prophet sent masala Norma later on the 13th year and he was able to guide a lot of people to Islam. The following year, the 13th year of prophethood 73

00:23:27--> 00:23:31

they came and established the bridge and with this migration happen

00:23:33--> 00:23:36

and I'm rushing through this but just you know,

00:23:37--> 00:23:40

inshallah, Allah Ani, I think you get the gist of it late in the night on.

00:23:42--> 00:23:43


00:23:44--> 00:23:47

I'm going to give you an example in the hijra, where

00:23:48--> 00:23:53

Muslims the prophets of Salaam pursued material means

00:23:55--> 00:24:02

no doubt the hlr witness number of extreme extraordinary incidents that show allies perfect gear for his messenger.

00:24:03--> 00:24:13

For most among there is the fact that Allah provided him with the unseen aid besides showing mercy and tranquility, so forth, but yet there must be planning.

00:24:14--> 00:24:31

Look, the prophet didn't say that Allah is gonna bring me on a aeroplane I'm gonna take me to Medina. Look, number one, the purchase of two camels of a walk. Don't go please buy two camels for us and feed them. In that means.

00:24:32--> 00:24:35

Isn't that material means right?

00:24:37--> 00:24:41

hiring a guide. And guess this guide was not a Muslim.

00:24:43--> 00:24:46

Just to show you that you're always you always should be after all, after work,

00:24:47--> 00:25:00

experience, but of course he has to be trustworthy. It is remarkable that the guy who is known by the name of the law, if not what I picked was still a disbeliever however, the

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

divinely guided messenger hired him on the basis of having two basic qualities professional experience, as well as his well known honesty he was known to be honest.

00:25:13--> 00:25:15

We shouldn't trust non Muslims

00:25:16--> 00:25:33

with if they are not known for honesty, dealing with the blood, even though Jabra elite Salaam told the prophet SAW Selim that the disbelievers devise the plan to kill you to assassinate you while you're asleep. Did the Prophet deal with it? No. He had to sleep in his place.

00:25:35--> 00:25:44

The human avatar, that's what a material means the property. Okay, JPL told me that. I'm good, right? Nah, man, that's the missing component in the room.

00:25:46--> 00:25:51

So Pamela heard it's something really interesting half of the hobby. They asked Ali, Vitali. Do

00:25:54--> 00:25:58

you know when was the best sleep you ever got? He said that night.

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

He said that they never slept better than this light.

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

So Allah

00:26:07--> 00:26:20

subhanaw taala they looked at him and they let him go. Hiding in the cave for three nights. Isn't that material means right. On the night of the planning assassination the Prophet went with his friend of overcoming

00:26:21--> 00:26:43

taking unusual route when they migrated by the way to Medina, they didn't take the the normal route. People traveled to Medina through they actually went and, and went through spying on the enemy of life and Abby buck he used to go and mix with the Qureshi to gather information for him.

00:26:45--> 00:26:50

Thanks that means this is ATC echo us we're missing this.

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

And he would come

00:26:53--> 00:26:56

look as Matt with come with the food.

00:26:58--> 00:27:01

I am revenue for IRA would give the milk

00:27:03--> 00:27:05

erasing the footprints.

00:27:07--> 00:27:09

That's how you trace people in the desert

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

of IRA would go and erase

00:27:15--> 00:27:17

abducting a great caution.

00:27:19--> 00:27:22

Again, Medina was a choice.

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

You seek all these means, and that's the amazing piece about the Hydra.

00:27:28--> 00:27:33

And in spite of this, the disbelievers found their way to the key.

00:27:35--> 00:27:36

So in spite of all these

00:27:38--> 00:27:43

the disbelievers went and stood out the abubaker looked at the profit if they look down, they will walk

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

this is the time then you say what he will take care of us.

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

Oh, hello.

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

So you did your best.

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

It didn't succeed. Then you leave it to Allah.

00:27:57--> 00:28:01

The Prophet tells Abu Bakr What do you think of two allies the third?

00:28:03--> 00:28:05

That's the combination of the two.

00:28:06--> 00:28:08

Look in the key.

00:28:09--> 00:28:10

Elena McMahon narrated this,

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

that the disbelievers

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

found the way to the cave.

00:28:18--> 00:28:20

They could see us if they look down.

00:28:22--> 00:28:24

Allah Subhana Allah revealed the Quran

00:28:25--> 00:28:27

saying that

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

we are with you basically, Allah has taken care of you again, the intervention of divine once you see the means I think that's the message I'm trying to convey here. Another situation so I have numeric.

00:28:42--> 00:28:43

We know that

00:28:45--> 00:28:57

the Qureshi assign a great amount of money as a bounty for whoever captures the profit I think was 700 camels or something like that. So Rob numericals was a horseman.

00:28:58--> 00:29:04

He found the prophet SAW Santa, but every time he would approach the Prophet what happened to his

00:29:05--> 00:29:09

his horse would sink into the scent more than one time.

00:29:10--> 00:29:14

And then at the end, you know he made the art for him and he became Muslim later on.

00:29:17--> 00:29:23

It is a walker was scared for the life of the Prophet of Allah said Allah is with us.

00:29:24--> 00:29:25


00:29:26--> 00:29:27

these are

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

Let's come together now which is the subject of our

00:29:33--> 00:29:34


00:29:36--> 00:29:41

we said it took place the Battle of beds on the 17th of Ramadan.

00:29:42--> 00:29:45

But it is located only 70 miles from Medina.

00:29:46--> 00:29:49

It is mentioned in several verses in the Quran.

00:29:50--> 00:29:52

Muslims were way outnumbered.

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

That's Mr.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

Medina the Mecca is down there. But that is

00:30:02--> 00:30:05

So the Muslims came in order to intercept the caravan near,

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

near better.

00:30:09--> 00:30:10

This is the Red Sea.

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

This is just some more

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

events leading to whether

00:30:22--> 00:30:24

to understand the causes of whether

00:30:26--> 00:30:28

we must look into the events of a juror.

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

Remember me saying that Muslims left their belongings behind right?

00:30:36--> 00:30:49

This who took over these belongings, the kuffaar and they want to invest it. That's why they sent Abu sufian in a caravan to Medina, to Sham to Syria to sell.

00:30:51--> 00:31:04

And with this money, buy merchandise, bring it back to Makkah to sell with the proceeds revere an army and fight the muscles. Because if you if you go online, by the way, you're going to find a huge allegation against the Prophet.

00:31:06--> 00:31:16

And this is one of the misconceptions by the way people have against the Prophet regarding this particular matter. So you should be able to defend the profits are solid. They say the profit was the one who triggered this battle

00:31:18--> 00:31:19

is the one who started fighting

00:31:21--> 00:31:45

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam earlier Let's read this to understand the causes of the Battle of weather. Let's look again into the events of Asia. After many of the people of Medina have embraced Islam they invited the Muslims to escape begun persecution and take refuge in their city. Many Muslims fled Mecca leaving behind their homes, worldly possessions. Some emigrated barefoot,

00:31:46--> 00:31:48

others were caught.

00:31:49--> 00:31:51

A lot of stories are out there.

00:31:52--> 00:32:24

Prophet Mohammed Salim himself escaped, you know, and he made it safely. The Bagan makin just read the second second bullet here showed no signs of ending there have solid hostilities, continuing their containment policies they plotted with their allies in Medina to show discord in the city, hoping it would cause the prophets of Salaam expulsion. For years the vegan had committed acts of aggression which we call acts of war.

00:32:26--> 00:32:34

They insisted the mandate that the Muslims are to leave the religion and come back they bought Muslims from visiting their hometown

00:32:35--> 00:32:47

issued threats. The father decided to collect the possessions of the Muslims and take it to see how to sell it and from the proceeds prepare an army to come to fight Muslims

00:32:48--> 00:32:57

even though the Quran permitted Muslims to defend themselves, but the one thing that the Muslims did is to

00:32:59--> 00:33:08

apply pressure on them by monitoring that route of trains. So the Muslims used to have like

00:33:09--> 00:33:18

expeditions go along that route. Okay guys, we got you now let's balance let's coexist together now. You're getting it.

00:33:19--> 00:33:38

He see the disbelievers at this time they're applying pressure they are they are harassing the Muslims. So the Muslims are trying to tell them listen guys, now we are in Medina was situated in your way to treat way to go sham. Now we can bother you so why didn't you let go let go

00:33:39--> 00:33:42

that's the message that the browser Salam was sending

00:33:46--> 00:33:50

the rescue call of Abu Sofia, we I think I told you the story already that

00:33:52--> 00:34:05

the prophets of Salaam went to intercept that caravan in its way up. And there was a mismatch. later on. When the caravan returned. A lot of the profits go and intercept that caravan.

00:34:06--> 00:34:23

The Prophet sallallahu wasallam called upon the Muslims whoever is ready, let's go. I'm not gonna wait for anybody. 317 Marsh with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now they are going to hunt down a caravan. That's the whole thing. A caravan.

00:34:25--> 00:34:26


00:34:27--> 00:34:31

Abu sufian learned about the intention.

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

He sent a rescue call to the people in Mecca come rescue your money your your caravan. 1000 warriors came marching towards Medina. They intended not only to rescue the caravan but also to put an end to the rising power of the Muslims.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

The Prophet sallallahu wasallam

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

analysis of the situation was supported by divine inspiration he called the Menagerie and of course, there was now a dbta for because he

00:35:09--> 00:35:18

agreed to protect the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam and the Muslims inside Medina some of you may not know this

00:35:20--> 00:35:25

not outside that's the agreement that was established in our cover

00:35:27--> 00:35:29

that's why I actually said this in the plan.

00:35:30--> 00:35:38

The Prophet stood up and he asked him which one you want to go for you want to go for the caravan or do you want to go for the army? They said the caravan are here for the caravan.

00:35:41--> 00:35:45

wavy I do como la de la effect tiny and nella,

00:35:46--> 00:35:53

whatever Duna and Nevada shokaku. You want the caravan you don't want to find the

00:35:54--> 00:36:37

box upon Allah Muslims Yani after Rasul Salam went back to them he got the commitment. One of them said something very interesting here. What I'm going to say to you like when you say he did say two months ago on your last fight, and we're gonna come afterwards No, we're gonna go with you know, that's a very okay I want to jump into you know, the means here. I want to show you how a law subpoena was designed this this special to come in that particular order, again, to send the message to the oma until the day of reckoning. It is not only about what you have, victory comes from me. Okay.

00:36:38--> 00:37:01

The Battle of better, which was set out under allies, arrangements and direction was a criterion between the right and falsehoods. It signified obvious manifestation and affirmation on the constant relationship between heaven and earth. The interrelation between the turn of events, the troops,

00:37:02--> 00:37:04

the miracles and all of this

00:37:06--> 00:37:17

is it reasonable that so poorly equipped 300 soldiers snatch an impressive victory over a huge will be built and equipped army?

00:37:19--> 00:37:23

Anybody can see that? That's 123 By the way, 123

00:37:25--> 00:37:26

imagine one person three or five.

00:37:28--> 00:37:29

It doesn't.

00:37:30--> 00:37:48

And they didn't have weapons. They had some of them had knives just nice. Because they they are going to originally they were going out for what 40 people guarding a caravan. Not to fight an army, who came originally from Mecca, Marshall was

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

ready for a battle.

00:37:54--> 00:38:02

However, their truthfulness, steadfastness, sincerity, were the key factors for victory.

00:38:03--> 00:38:04

It's Panama.

00:38:08--> 00:38:23

When the news came to the disbelievers of Christ, about Muslims plan to seize the caravan, they mobilized a big army which tripled the number of the Muslims army fully equipped, supplies supply to crush Muslims and put an end to the Islamic existence.

00:38:25--> 00:38:27

The conveyor leader Abu Sophia

00:38:28--> 00:38:32

could flee away with the caravan and he did. He arrived safely Mecca.

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

But Abu Jihad By the way, people said Why are we here? We got the cover. No,

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

I'm not gonna leave here until Subhan Allah and he was killed in that battle. So until all the Arabs know what we don't know to the Muslims.

00:38:51--> 00:39:00

When the battle flared up, Muslims stood firmly sacrifice themselves and support of the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah spoke about this in the Quran.

00:39:01--> 00:39:07

So look at the last bullet here. Let's review some of the facts of Allah support to the Muslims in this battle,

00:39:09--> 00:39:10

causing the battle.

00:39:13--> 00:39:19

Look at the verse, verse number five, seven and eight. If you look at the sort of five, seven and eight, oh,

00:39:21--> 00:39:30

come rajasekhara bukem in the Tikka will have to work in a very communal meaning.

00:39:32--> 00:39:35

You do Dr. Phil How are

00:39:38--> 00:39:42

you sir? Puna el mundo holmium buen

00:39:43--> 00:39:46

ye di como la de la

00:39:47--> 00:39:52

la la said to you that you want to get one of the two the caravan or the army. Now you want the caravan.

00:39:54--> 00:39:55

But Allah wants you to go for what

00:39:56--> 00:39:57

for the army

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


00:40:01--> 00:40:16

Why? Because a law look at the last number eight and I think nine there is eight or nine there is another because a law wanted to send the message until the day of judgment that when I give someone victory no one can stand in front of that person.

00:40:18--> 00:40:21

Well, if you do como la, de

00:40:23--> 00:40:41

la Combe, whatever Dune and Nevada Tisha catechu Nola calm, while you read Allahu Allah will to justify the truth by his words and to cut off the roots of disbelievers in the Battle of medicine.

00:40:44--> 00:40:50

So causing the battle a lot one in this battle to take place and other things. Angels

00:40:51--> 00:40:52


00:40:57--> 00:41:02

look at this Allah subhana wa padina sobre como la we'll be back

00:41:03--> 00:41:04


00:41:06--> 00:41:12

look at the verse number 12 and 13 is the study to confess

00:41:13--> 00:41:14


00:41:15--> 00:41:19

to the elfi meenal aka t moon jelly

00:41:21--> 00:41:22


00:41:23--> 00:41:24

in Russia

00:41:26--> 00:41:34

look at something very interesting in this verse as well as telling you what listen I think the angel just to comfort you but yet victory still gonna come from who

00:41:35--> 00:41:55

but for you to see angels around you is gonna put you at a loss telling you is not about the angels either. Not the angels are giving you victory I give you victory. But you have to see some material. And the Muslims By the way, they saw some of the Muslims they saw angels on the day fighting with them.

00:41:57--> 00:42:00

looks upon Allah, Allah one of the greatest things that happened

00:42:02--> 00:42:03

that Allah

00:42:05--> 00:42:10

made the Muslims see the disbelievers equal to the number

00:42:12--> 00:42:13

and their dreams.

00:42:14--> 00:42:15

Look at the verses.

00:42:16--> 00:42:24

Allah subhana wa Taala relates to us that he assisted the Muslims in the Battle of better by showing them the number of the disbelievers fewer than they were

00:42:28--> 00:42:30

they sue the disbelievers who will triple

00:42:32--> 00:42:38

triple the number of small number of soldiers. The same thing happened with the disbelievers

00:42:40--> 00:42:41

because Allah wants what

00:42:43--> 00:42:46

Allah wants both factions to engage

00:42:50--> 00:43:03

in this one, a de como la houfy Anamika kalila while araca whom Kathy euro left a shield to me tomahto naza fill

00:43:05--> 00:43:06

in Allah

00:43:08--> 00:43:14

Allah made you see them in their in your sleep in your dreams few in numbers.

00:43:15--> 00:43:20

What he has shown you them huge numbers you'd have

00:43:22--> 00:43:29

a look at this now. When you re Kumu EDL Takai tongzhi unicam Cali

00:43:31--> 00:43:40

what you call Lilo comfy, uni him, Leah could do while they are standing. They see you a few they see a few Leah the Allahu

00:43:41--> 00:43:48

Allah because Allah wants this battle to take place with the circumstances. You're getting the idea.

00:43:51--> 00:43:54

altering of the eye, the view of dreams.

00:43:56--> 00:43:59

Look at this verse. I love this verse 3043 and 44

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

imagine you go home tonight and you read and follow that understanding.

00:44:05--> 00:44:23

When Allah showed them to you and your dream as few and if he had shown them to you, as many, you believers would have lost courage and would have the spirit in the method. But Allah saved you from that because Allah knows what's in your press. Allah knows your human beings in the lab.

00:44:25--> 00:44:38

And remember when he showed them to you when you met a few in your eyes, and he made you appeal in their eyes also a few because what

00:44:39--> 00:44:41

this is the verse that I quoted a minute ago.

00:44:42--> 00:44:43

So pan Elia is

00:44:45--> 00:44:46


00:44:49--> 00:44:52

First of all, the night of the battle

00:44:54--> 00:44:58

some Muslims had with dreams.

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

Imagine this some Muslims had with dreams

00:45:04--> 00:45:07

so they were concerned what happened if they are to be killed in this battle now.

00:45:08--> 00:45:10

So Allah sends down that

00:45:12--> 00:45:22

Ray not only to wash you off your impurity, but the Muslims were standing in a land which is Sandy

00:45:23--> 00:45:31

some of the verses of the that the sand the land the place where the Muslims chose to stand up was the sand. So what does both of us do the same

00:45:34--> 00:45:44

the the disbelievers were standing on a rock solid ground what the water would do to the rock slippery

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

is and to build what to do near our home below. Our rock was filming Cooper look at this

00:45:52--> 00:46:12

is Yoshi commonwise anatomy Meanwhile, Yuna zero on a camino de Sena EMA and loofah Hera combi sala profounder into up to Tara Heba and Kumari Jesus shaitan and for that impurity stated from purity to be gone,

00:46:13--> 00:46:23

while you will be to be locked down and to make Earth work for beneath you divine interface intervention from Allah.

00:46:25--> 00:46:34

Yeah, look at these things, all these things. These are small details which we think would look into your own life. You see, you see a lot of details into your own life, our lives taking care of you,

00:46:36--> 00:46:37

taking care of your family.

00:46:39--> 00:46:54

However, some of them had with dreams and became ritually impure. Thus, they needed water. Moreover, the disbelievers applied for arrived early to better and captured and destroyed some of the water of wills. Muslims became very thirsty and needed a photo.

00:46:56--> 00:47:34

It was the care of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he sent down rain so that they become pure active waters and also the earth beneath them became better be billed for moving and going than the sand the earth underneath the disbelievers. The Quran back shows this remember when he overwhelmed you with the drowsiness getting security from him sin down upon you from the sky rain by which to purify you removed from you the evil suggestions of Satan and to make steadfast your heart and plan firm either by your feet.

00:47:35--> 00:47:36

That's in the surah

00:47:38--> 00:47:43

the professor solemn that night that therefore he took a small sense and he thought

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

and he killed some people with it glammed up to Rome Allah, Allah, Allah wa rahmatullah Rama, Rama Rama

00:47:53--> 00:47:59

casting terror into the disbelievers. So Pamela they used to run away in the battlefields.

00:48:02--> 00:48:09

Remember when your Lord inspires the angels, till the believers I'm with you, allies with you, strengthen them

00:48:18--> 00:48:22

and everlasting listen for the oma until the day of judgment, this metal

00:48:25--> 00:48:49

now, yet there was pursuit of material needs in this metal to give you some examples, like the believers period, both the consciousness of Allah the pursuit of possible material means imagine the disbelievers combined both this believing in Allah and poor planning this believers didn't do a good job with this method by the way, didn't do very good job.

00:48:54--> 00:48:55

Look at the good planning.

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

The professor sell and planning for the better the old was he received up to date information.

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

He always used to send them one day by the way, he wanted to know exactly how many orders he could somebody

00:49:10--> 00:49:17

and the person refused to kill him how many in the army. So he asked he asked them, he asked him

00:49:19--> 00:49:24

how many camels Do you slaughter a day? He said 10 The Prophet said they have 1000

00:49:25--> 00:49:27

because each 108

00:49:28--> 00:49:30

one camel So

00:49:32--> 00:49:35

sure, the profit till tomorrow What should we do?

00:49:37--> 00:49:42

Look at this a call 911 of the most amazing things that happened in this better look at the third bullet.

00:49:43--> 00:49:47

A companion by the name Habib No wonder he asked the Prophet

00:49:48--> 00:49:56

is the choice of us standing here in this place, a divine instruction or your own opinion.

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

The profit sector know how

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

Well mature, this is opinion and has nothing to do with divine. He said then we should go and stand next to the wills. So when they want to drink water, they have to come up the Muslims were standing away from the wills initially. So

00:50:15--> 00:50:27

better than when they came to the processor today, what is it? Is it divine should we stand here because it's a command or it is the war and the schemes and the planning and the blood, then we should be there, the prophet immediately adopted his opinion.

00:50:28--> 00:50:44

Form control over the army. The Prophet arranged the army in a way that there was communication, you know, enable date acting and what to do when Yeah, that's means being mindful of the material strength of your enemy.

00:50:47--> 00:51:02

Never be boastful Allahu Muslims against being boastful Do not be like the disbelievers who came out boastful, of course, above all the obedience of Allah and His messenger. Again, all these things you will find it in, in your

00:51:04--> 00:51:23

you know, imagine you go and read the surah. Now, with that in mind, you're looking for two things, how Allah helped the Muslims in this battle, that divine intervention and how the Muslims took their means, use the remains, and at the end, the Muslims one

00:51:24--> 00:51:40

because of those two, your two means to success in this world to believe that victory comes from Allah subhana wa tada regardless of the means, but part of you believing this that utilize that means you have to study

00:51:41--> 00:52:04

to be successful in school, you have to pass the test, you have to train these are the means to be successful. So inshallah, hopefully, we finished. Imagine we finished third of the Quran next, sort of October. Imagine the next surah is going to comment on the last battle

00:52:06--> 00:52:07

the Prophet participated in

00:52:08--> 00:52:15

and so Panama those two sewers By the way, I'm gonna explain this one. So talk about sort of the Toba they are not separated with this pillar.

00:52:18--> 00:52:25

Something very interesting by the way. So Llanfair commented on, commented on the first battle

00:52:26--> 00:52:31

it recommended on the last battle, which is battle fought anyone knows

00:52:32--> 00:52:33


00:52:34--> 00:52:37

the Battle of taboo and they will not separate it with

00:52:39--> 00:52:48

a separation this will never matter. So inshallah, next Wednesday imagine you just learn swift and unfelt tonight, and an hour or so Jakob, aloha Allah Subhana.

00:52:49--> 00:52:51
