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

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala sherfield MBA will mousseline Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah Almighty He right early he was have you send them to sleep and cathedra cathedra from Abbado, my brothers and sisters, we continue with the story of Brother, we are spending a lot of time on this because it's such an important story and so much and such a such a pivotal and critical part of the history of Islam and the Muslims.

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

Sadly, rather than

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

in brother, he suggested that it really is kind of a shade be built for Rasulullah Salah to function as its so called, like a headquarters. I mean headquarters zone is like big terms. But so this was a small battle by any military standards, but have very great significance by historical standards. So that's, that's the

00:00:58--> 00:01:10

the thing about bother. So he suggested that trellis should be built for Rasulillah Salam. So, he has some shade to you know, to, to say the status to stand on.

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


00:01:16--> 00:01:20

I chose to do sort of restaurant in the in the in the sun and so on.

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


00:01:25--> 00:01:28

as some sort of, you know, prediction from the from the weather

00:01:33--> 00:01:42

sad, Aviano, he suggested this, then he began to justify his proposal. And he said that if they had been, if they were Victor, if they were victorious,

00:01:44--> 00:02:08

then everything is fine. But in the if they if you're if they were defeated wrestlers or Salem would not be harmed. And he could go back to Medina where there were more people who loved him, and who would have come for help, who would have come to help him if they had known that he was in that difficult position. So that and then he would

00:02:10--> 00:02:20

he could then resume his work of thou to Islam, and you know, consult with those people, and so on and so forth.

00:02:24--> 00:02:43

There was no sort of need for the justification. But you know, people are trying to be to be as protective of our sorrows asylum, as the Court. They chose a squad of guards also from among the unserved and under the leadership of Tsar Benoit. And

00:02:45--> 00:02:49

in order to defend us or allies and sell them

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

in in his

00:02:53--> 00:02:58

very well he was stationed, so like a personal guard for him.

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

So as I said, I'm spent the preceding day of the battle in, in Salah, and in Doha, the whole day,

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

the Muslim army,

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

which was tired after the long march,

00:03:17--> 00:04:07

they slept peacefully, and this was a mark of divine favor of Allah subhanaw taala and of the state of their undisturbed mind these were not people who are worried and who are concerned what will happen to us and so on. These are people at peace, and it shows the position of the Muslim who has Tawakkol Allah subhanaw taala that he doesn't allow anything to bother him and to travel a lot around that I said about this is euro shikumen Lhasa I'm an atom Minho, y z rally Camila sama ima muta Hara Tahira come up here, I couldn't be here are you have ankle Maritza shaytani, when the year will be toil Apple will be come where you will find better be he'll akhdam. The Allah said remember

00:04:07--> 00:04:12

when he Jalla Jalla who, when Allah subhanaw taala covered you

00:04:13--> 00:04:37

with a slumber as a security from him. And he caused rain to descend on you from the sky to clean you thereby and to remove from you the rich the whispering of shatter and to strengthen your hearts and to make your feet firm thereby. Now,

00:04:38--> 00:04:46

this is something that we that I mentioned during the last lecture also also above the fact that is rain when it fell. It had a

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

different effect when it fell on the Muslims and it had a different effect when it fell on the on the enemies. That was Friday night. So rather than the 17th and the year was two

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

Oh Hijiri two h

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

in the morning resource salah, which would be the 18th of Ramadan, called his people for Salah

00:05:14--> 00:05:15

and out as an advisor

00:05:16--> 00:05:18

and sort of give a hot bath

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

inspiring them and urging them to fight

00:05:25--> 00:05:26

with great bravery

00:05:27--> 00:05:29

for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:05:30--> 00:05:41

As the sun rose over the desert or Surah Surah Selim drew up his little army, and he pointed with an arrow, he arranged the ranks.

00:05:43--> 00:05:51

The Hooray the Quran is on the other hand, they position their forces in World War Two cosa opposite the Muslim lights. Now,

00:05:53--> 00:05:55

if you have them approached in a provocative

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


00:05:59--> 00:06:09

to draw water from the wealth of butter, but they were all shot dead, except one Hakeem in his arm, who later became a devoted Muslim.

00:06:10--> 00:06:31

Omar when viable Juma he, in an attempt to recon the power of the Muslims, he made a scouting errand. And he submitted a report that the Muslim army was about 300 Men keen on fighting to the last man. So they said that he told them he said they are small in number, but they are extremely, highly motivated.

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


00:06:35--> 00:06:38

so that was that was his report.

00:06:39--> 00:06:55

On another recon mission, he came to the conclusion that neither reinforcements reinforcements would come nor were ambushes being laid. He understood that they were too brave to surrender and to intent on getting out

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

there on fighting so they were, they were in it to the last man, and they were not going to go away. And they were not going to

00:07:11--> 00:07:12

and they were not going to

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

surrender or just just disappear.

00:07:17--> 00:07:28

Now this report as well as the family relations binding the two opposing parties together, slacken the desire to fight among some have the courage to be they will literally there were people who are

00:07:33--> 00:07:50

closely related brothers, father and son, things like that on either on either side. So people were not keen to fight. The Quran says we are killing our own our own relatives, and especially in tribal societies and in

00:07:51--> 00:08:03

and in those times as well. Even today, family relations are very, very important thing and people don't take them lightly. So they said, look there is this a serious I mean, we can't just kill our killer on people. But

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

what do I mean Robbie and others, they told me that he that he better start

00:08:16--> 00:08:17

you know, he started

00:08:19--> 00:08:21

obviously, arousing his people. So he

00:08:23--> 00:08:28

gave the speech and he manipulated people to

00:08:30--> 00:09:12

to remain there and to fight. Now, when the two parties, the two armies, they move closer together, and they became visible to each other Rasulullah Salam started making dua he said Allah Oh Allah, the conceited and haughty, the proud and arrogant Quraysh are already here defying you and they are denying and believing your messenger or Allah, I am waiting for your victory which you promised me. I beseech you, I beg you you're allowed to defeat the enemies. He also gave strict orders that his men would not start fighting until he gave them his final word. He said he would do not attack nobody will shoot anything. No arrows, nothing until he said he recommended that they use that I

00:09:12--> 00:09:17

will sparingly and never resort to the sore until the enemies came to close.

00:09:18--> 00:09:32

Now, I will also prayed for victory and he said oh our rod whichever of the two parties was less kind to his relatives and brought us what we do not know then destroy him tomorrow. Now it's, you know, he's one.

00:09:33--> 00:09:36

He made his way he literally made the DUA against himself.

00:09:37--> 00:09:39

But this is why I was rattled accepted.

00:09:42--> 00:09:47

Now, we're confident that they're superior number

00:09:49--> 00:09:55

that I armor, their equipment. Their experience will be decisive. The Quran Al Karim

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

with a play on the word

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

I told them that the decision had to come and the victory, but not in the sense that they had hoped for.

00:10:09--> 00:10:12

And that's around Adela said in the Quran

00:10:15--> 00:11:05

I was willing to shut down the regime in that stuff their whole forgot Jah como Fatah. When done Dahu for Hua Pharaoh local were in Dar odo narrowed, while Antonia uncom fear to come say, Hello, cassoulet, wonderla, mild Mini, and last round that I said all these believers, and he's talking is addressing the courage. He said, if you ask for a judgment, now the judgment has come to you. And if you cease to do wrong, it will be better for you. And but if you return to the attack, so shall we return and your forces will be of no avail to your forces will not help you however numerous that may be. And verily, Allah subhanaw taala is with the believers. Now, this is a very important thing

00:11:05--> 00:11:08

to understand here that unless we're actually saying to them, that

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

the judgment is coming to you. And if you want to accept it,

00:11:17--> 00:11:27

this is good for you. And if you don't want to accept it, then this judgment is going to be against you and Allah subhanaw and all your

00:11:28--> 00:11:44

power and so on and so forth, which you are, which you think you have a loss route that says none of that will be of any use to you, because Allah subhanaw taala is with the beliefs. So, none of your power and anything else is going to help you you are going to lose

00:11:45--> 00:11:46


00:11:49--> 00:12:05

the first of the operation to trigger the battle and to become its first victim was Al Assad bin Abdul Asad zoomy was a very fierce, very bad tempered person.

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

He he stepped out from

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

the ranks and

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


00:12:20--> 00:12:33

said he will he would drink from the water basin which is where the Muslims collect the water, he would drink from that or otherwise he would destroy destroy it or die for it. Hamza Talib of the Elano

00:12:37--> 00:12:42

met him and with the first blow of his Solly

00:12:45--> 00:12:50

cut off his leg and the next block he killed. So, the battle had actually

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


00:12:53--> 00:12:54

Now, there was a

00:12:56--> 00:13:03

there was a customer of the time and this happened in many places, and many battles and all the way to medieval times and

00:13:07--> 00:13:14

even later, which is the custom of individual personal one on one duels, there was a

00:13:15--> 00:13:26

very strong psychological reason for that. Both armies will send forward their champions in the Quran and also in the Bible, the story of David and Goliath

00:13:28--> 00:13:29

thou that is salaam Angelou

00:13:31--> 00:13:34

is a similar story where the

00:13:36--> 00:14:30

the Pharisees they sent out Goliath who was their greatest and biggest warrior massive big man in armor, fully clad in our with the sword, and so on and spear and facing him was thou that is Sarah shepherd boy with asleep. Now, that's a separate story altogether. And if you do if you are interested, I have done I think two lectures on this on the story of David and Goliath that was really salaam Angelou and, but this is one of those things where the champion from here and champion from there would fight. The idea was that if you could kill the champion of the opposite army, then obviously that would have a huge psychological impact on the army because you just kill their best

00:14:30--> 00:14:40

person their biggest warrior and psychologically it would be it was a huge blow it would be a huge blow to the other army. So they tried to do that this was their this was this was the reason why it was done.

00:14:41--> 00:14:55

So here with Robin Robbia, he stepped forth between his brother Shiva and his son Alwaleed bin otter, from the light from the light of the Quran, so they were three of them.

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

Barnaby with his two with his brother and his and his son

00:15:02--> 00:15:05

Three young men from the Tsar.

00:15:06--> 00:15:07

They came,

00:15:09--> 00:15:10

they stood against them.

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


00:15:16--> 00:15:24

that is often more and more, the sons of Hadith. And Abdullah bin Raja of the Allah are known as you may.

00:15:26--> 00:15:31

But the McCanns yell, and they said we have nothing to do with the answer.

00:15:34--> 00:15:47

They said we do not have any quarrel with the unser with the people of Medina. Our problem is with our own people from Makkah, the MaHA Joon. So we will not fight the people of Makkah, now people of Medina

00:15:49--> 00:16:02

so they wanted the heads of their cousins upon this surah Salah Salem asked Vida when Harris, his uncle Hamza will Abdul Muttalib and his cousin Ali Bin Abu Talib robiola to go and fight.

00:16:04--> 00:16:12

The Three Jewels were rapid Hamza or Golan who killed Shiva, while Ali Bynum Italia killed al Walid. Oh, by the

00:16:13--> 00:16:42

way, was seriously wounded. But before he fell, whether the lung was seriously wounded, but before he fell, Hamza fell upon ODVA and with a swig of his soul, he caught up with it. So Ali and Hamza Vilanova carried Obeidallah the Alonso back with his leg which had been severed, and he died four or five days later, and he was the first Shaheed off brother.

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

This was the

00:16:46--> 00:16:49

so basically, but as far as that

00:16:51--> 00:16:55

war, as far as the duels were concerned, this one

00:16:58--> 00:17:03

this was decisive in the sense that the the Muslims, they killed

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

all the three of their enemies.

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

Now, this duel was followed by a few more duels, but the McCanns suffered

00:17:16--> 00:17:40

total defeats in all the combat, and they lost some of their most precious warriors. So rasa Salam continuously prayed ceaselessly for help from Allah subhanaw taala. And at the end, he said, Oh, Allah, should this group of Muslims be defeated today, there will be nobody left to worship you on the earth. He continued to call out to his Rob

00:17:41--> 00:17:42

Jalla Jalla, who,

00:17:43--> 00:18:17

raising standing like this, raising his hands and facing the Qibla until his cloak dropped off his shoulders that will work out the alarm came, he picked up the cloak, he put it back on his shoulders, and he said, Yeah, rasool Allah, you have called out enough to Europe, he said Bashar Assad Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will definitely fulfill and give you what he promised you. Now this is the comfort that the friend is giving to his friend. Now this does not mean that our sorrows and Asana was any was in any doubt about Allah's promise.

00:18:19--> 00:18:22

It just to let us know and understand

00:18:23--> 00:18:25

that Allah subhanaw taala has

00:18:26--> 00:18:37

promised to his Nabi Salah Salem was true and it would, that Allah subhanaw taala would give him what Allah subhanaw taala promised to give him

00:18:39--> 00:18:41

the response no one knows better than I was

00:18:42--> 00:19:06

immediate. And he sent his Malaika from the heavens to help and for the assistance of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. Allah Subhana Allah revealed. This about this. Another one that I mentioned to you beautiful ayat of surah Dylan file, where a lot of handled that I said

00:19:08--> 00:19:27

is just the wreath over Arab bacaan first tajawal anemia dokkan Elfi mineral Mala Ekati more of the field. Remember when you asked help of your Rob, he answered you saying I will help you with 1000 Angels

00:19:28--> 00:19:55

each behind the other following each other in succession. And then Allah subhanaw taala as it is, is you he rob Booker l Mala Ekati Ernie Viacom for subito Lavina mono for all k v pulumi. Lavina Cafaro Robert Faber rebou vocal anarchy was that he will mean home cool Lebanon, unless I remember when you're inspired the angels.

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

Verily I'm with you. So keep fun

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

Those who have believed, I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved. Strike over their necks and smite over all their fingers and toes. Now, these are ads revealed, in the case of

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

offer sort of sell them think about this.

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

How many angels does it take to completely destroy this world and all the creation that Allah's monetary intention to destroy?

00:20:32--> 00:20:52

Before on the day of judgment, and then to resurrect the the human beings that Jin do answer to him? What does it take? How many angels or what force does it take to destroy everything? It just takes one angel? Is that a feeder? Is that I mean, what will he do? He will just blow the soul once the trumpet ones just

00:20:54--> 00:21:08

poof it's gone. Everything's finished just wondering you. So why is ultramarathoner saying to help the Muslims, Allah is saying that I will send you 1000 Angels, this is the car this is the the

00:21:09--> 00:21:29

the the hazeh This is the prestige of the Rasul Allah is Allah. Allah subhanaw taala says, I will send you 1000 angels because this is to honor his prophets, Elijah, there is no need for 1000 Angels is only to honor the Prophet salallahu Alaihe while he was of your setup, and this is something which we

00:21:31--> 00:21:32

must really

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

think about.

00:21:35--> 00:21:57

So as soon as I said, and then He dozed off a little and then he raised his hand, and he raised his hand and said, You called him the lotto. He said, glad tidings for you. Allah subhanaw taala is victory has approached by Allah I can see Jabril on his bed, in the thick of a sandstorm. And he

00:21:59--> 00:22:05

and he Salallahu Alaihe Salam, he then he then jumped up.

00:22:06--> 00:22:09

And he said, the famous I had,

00:22:11--> 00:22:12

of sort of the cover,

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

say use hammer Junko, but you weren't alone at the war, there multitude will be put to flight, and they will show their backs.

00:22:23--> 00:22:33

This is showing the back in battle, was considered to be at a posit is one of the worst things that anybody could do. And

00:22:35--> 00:22:36

that was something that,

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

you know, no,

00:22:40--> 00:22:50

no soldier of any kind in those days good. But think about that. But think about doing that. And the reason I'm saying here, this is what happened.

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

And then

00:22:56--> 00:23:02

GB CERAM Setosa sallam, he told him to pick up a handful of gravel and sand and throw it

00:23:04--> 00:23:54

towards the enemy and he said, confusion sees their faces. They took the sand and threw it. And as he flung the dust, the sand, a violent Sandstorm blue like a furnace blast into the eyes of the enemies. And Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that also in sonogram file. And that's why there is a file M Topo. To low while I can Allah kata Allahu wa Rahmatullah either AMITA wala Qin Allah Rama while you will yell we need I mean who Bella and Hazara in Allaha, some of you and Eileen, you did not kill them, but Allah killed them. And you will hammer Salah Salem did not throw when you did throw but Allah through Allah said that this is when you throw it it was Allah subhanaw taala who

00:23:54--> 00:24:06

was throwing it and he made it happen, that he might test the believers by a fair trial from Him. Verily, Allah subhanaw taala is all here and all nor

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

this is the

00:24:10--> 00:24:14

and then when that happened, and also the Salem gave

00:24:17--> 00:24:35

he ordered the Muslims to love to launch a counter attack. So they were until then they were being held back. So he commanded the army inspiring confidence among his men, and exhorting them to fight manfully for the sake of

00:24:36--> 00:24:38

Allah subhanaw taala. And

00:24:40--> 00:24:47

last, right that I mentioned again, in the Quran, you know, this is the beauty of the Quran that Allah subhanaw taala

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

mentioned these things and he tells us these things, everything is Allah is Witness to this and this is what is happening. So Allah Azza wa Sadio Ilana Filati mirabito What Jana de

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

In outdoor has Samoa to an outdoor are in that little motorcade Allah said on March 4 Run and race towards the forgiveness of Europe.

00:25:09--> 00:25:33

And for Jana as wide as are the heavens and the earth prepared for the cone for preparing for people who are concerned about the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala in their lives, Allah subhanaw taala he says, The Heaven, which you will be given is bigger than the heavens and the earth, and the Spirit that He infused into his man, Salah Salem

00:25:35--> 00:26:09

was witnessed by the Vela Umair, who was a young lad of 16, who was eating some dates and he threw this away. And he said these dates are holding you back from Paris and from Jana, and so he plunged into the battle, and he fought and fought bravely and he was Shaheed was martyred, a unique deeds of valor and deep devotion and full obedience resources seldom were exhibited in the process of this battle. The army of the believers was born forward by the

00:26:10--> 00:26:16

power of their enthusiasm and their love for Allah subhanaw taala. And which the

00:26:17--> 00:26:31

Quraysh were the only half hearted the many of them didn't even want to fight, and they were there for hatred, whereas the Muslims were there for the love of Allah, Samantha. So a lot of the Quraysh and the other

00:26:32--> 00:26:43

enemies of the Muslims, but they were killed, and over 70 of them are killed and the others, they began to waver. The recording is there are many of these

00:26:45--> 00:26:57

about the angels who fought by the side of the Muslims, the members on the land and says, white on that day, a Muslim was chasing a disbeliever and he heard over him, the whip the whiplash sound of a whiplash

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

and the voice of the

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


00:27:07--> 00:27:25

saying, Go ahead, hi. Oh, hello moto was unable to ride his horse. And he said he the Muslim looked at the he was about to Sunday saw this enemy soldier. And he's we found him beheaded. And he was fought his back on his fallen back on his

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

arm back on and off and on his back, Father on his back. Now minus has had

00:27:34--> 00:27:53

one of the UNs out, he came to his cellar, and he's narrated his incident. So that's what happened. I was, you know, chasing a man and then he enemy soldier and then I heard this sound of a whiplash, and his head flew off. And I said, Yes, you have spoken the truth. This was the help from the third heaven.

00:27:55--> 00:27:57

One of the unsolved

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