hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa sallahu wa salam ala should be even more serene. Her mother was a little nice. I love it right early he was having seldom does leave on cathedral cathedral.
My brother sister on the walk when the battle of Mother finished and completed, Rasul Allah sent two of his companions, two of the Sahaba
as his Harold as the people to announce the victory of the Muslims of delivering Viva La Jolla. And they've been harissa of the Allahu
they were both dispatched to Madeira to give them give the people of Medina and the victory of the of the Muslims of Medina the good news of victory
they are highly thought of Alana was writing as well as her Salam scam Campbell and causeway
so when the when there's other people saw them coming, the rumor mongers of
among the enemies of Allah and the enemies of Islam, in Medina, including the hypocrites, they spread news, and they spread this rumor that Rasulullah sallallahu had been killed.
And now and
then and the reason was, well here is I've been highlighting Russell Russell a sort of skeleton.
But when the this was, you know, when they saw them coming, but when they came, they
told the Muslims the happy news of victory and they gave them a detailed account of what happened from the beginning to the end.
And so, the people who are anxious, it gives them great comfort and the Muslims immediately they started praising Allah subhanaw taala as saying Allah akbar 100 Allah
there, all the the chiefs and others, they went out of the city on the road to bother
to welcome Rasul Allah. He
was on Wednesday the Vilano reveal anima he said that, at the time that they received this news, when his father and Abdullah with our holiday Alana came.
The people of Medina had just returned from the burial from the janazah of Ruqayyah. Been to a Humbert sallallahu alayhi salam, the wife was not been a fan of Delano, who, who had was terminally ill and she was dying. So when J Roswaal, wanted to accompany resource SLM to bother I told him to stay in Medina and to look after her. And that is how says enough man is counted among the Badri in one that people are bothered even though he didn't fight in that battle, because he was directly ordered virus was a sell him to remain behind to look after his wife and in the in the process in that time she passed away. So Sam inside of Alana says that it was a bittersweet time for us because
we were mourning. And we were sad about the
passing away the death of the daughter or soldiers or Salem and the wife, I was not even a fan of the alarm. And then we are the alarm when we got this news of the victory from
while they were leaving. Before they were leaving, actually the
place of the battle. There was a dispute among the Muslims about the distribution of the spoils of war. The honeymoon there is because the adult we used to the rolls custom, which was that
people, whatever you got was yours. Whatever you were able to get was yours. As I told you mentioned before, there were no standing armies. So these were not soldiers fighting for a salary. That came later eventually the time also then our little Katara dillon who this was even before that, actually even college of alarm came and became the commander in chief and one of the things that was introduced was an intern the day was over. Let's say that our model Delano it was
institutionally institutionalized, that there was a standing army and this army was paid. But until then, it was all spies a war so there was a conflict.
While the meantime it toggle and we said that
we went out with our soldiers and Salem, and I was in the Battle of bother the battle started and others that are defeated the enemy some of the Muslims,
they pursued the enemy
to make sure that the enemy
was finally God, while others
got involved in collecting the booty, this Buddha war spies a war from the enemy camp. And there was third there was a third party who are guarding their source wasallam
in case of any emergency or surprise attack, so, When night fell, and the Muslims gathered together, those who collected the
booty they said This is ours, we can we collected we gathered it, so, nobody has any right on it. Those who pursued the enemy, they said you do not have more right to it than we do. We held the enemy at bay, and then we defeated them. And if that had not been the case, the Moroccan army could have rallied and retaliated the people who were guarding our sorrows and asylum, they made their own claims because obviously it is
it was you know, for them, it was very important thing.
There was nothing more important than the life of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. So,
they said well, as far as we are concerned, this is
this is the life of the boxer side of himself. And
so, therefore, it is, you know, we were doing this work, which was so important.
So, that happened. Now, each one had their own claim, and obviously, it was something that was
that was extremely important. And
it was something that
nobody could say one way or the other about this.
So I looked around down at the MGB record on the last round of debt. I said the first item on file, but Allah subhanaw taala said, I will be leaving chatango redeem, yes Aluna caniell and file called lil unfairly. He were Rasool but the hula will actually who that are by Unicom, for article Allah wa Sula, who incontinent Momineen illustrata said, they are asking you concerning the spoils of war, tell them the spoils of war belong to Allah and the messenger savasana. That's it. Nobody else belong to Allah and in Los Angeles. So we are Allah and set things right between you, as the homeowner, make sure that you are not fighting with each other.
And obey Allah Subhana Allah and His messenger if you are true believers. So Allah Mirjana made this very strong point. Now
if you think about this,
this was the first experience of fighting under the banner of Islam, the Muslim soldiers did not know. Or they did not have any idea that the regulations of fighting
under Islam would be any different from what they had in the past. And there the whole reading was, you know, your grab duty.
And you and you go, but in Islam, there's a whole set of rules and regulations of what is permissible, permissible and what is not permissible even in a state of war. Now, all that although I had and all those
other Quran had not yet been revealed, so, they did not know all of this. So,
there was a dispute. Now, Allah subhanaw taala.
At this juncture, he
revealed his I
know for think about this as the opposite is to say the very use of the word and unfettered instead of Vana, right Allah do not call it a NEMA, and let it unfold. Which is the plural of nothing, which is extra. So, when Nefeli when it is extra, when we do not feel this is extra, over our obligatory duties towards Allah subhanaw taala. So whether it's enough etc, and I feel fasting,
over and above the cat, whatever we we give us other car, which is enough in South Africa, and so on, if I do if I do more than one hedge, then this is nothing. So this is from the, from the slave to the, to his Rob, all novel is extra about that and extra actions of good which the slave is doing in order to please Allah subhanaw taala when it is the opposite, which is, it is nothing from Allah subhanaw taala then it is the blessing of Allah subhanaw taala and so our whole lives are like that, because Allah does not give us exactly how much we need or like us as far and far more than what do we actually need.
Allah subhanho wa Taala first and foremost in this ayah
made a direct statement, quality and value Lillahi wa Rasul Allah Samantha has said all the extra, you're getting all the Nuffield you're getting is, which is this spoiled or what is,
belongs to Allah and belongs to his Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam
and then Allah's route that I said, stop fighting amongst yourself, do not fight among yourselves.
It is this is something which is
which is very important for you to understand that you don't want to fight and you know, do all of these kinds of stuff.
And then later on in aisle number 41, in sozialen file, Allah subhanaw taala gave the whole list of how this the spoils of war are actually to be used, what must go to home and so on and so forth. But
to begin with Allah subhanaw taala made it very clear and said that the the actual true owner
is Allah subhanaw taala and is Rasool Allah salah.
The then Allah subhanho data
revealed the other two
of swords run fall in the mud moving on to get a lot of global weather Talia Dai Li Maya to whose other to me Vanna White behemoth avocado, Olivia, you came on a solid hour me Murdoch. Now I'm going to go through like a whole
long the Rajat renderable him have not forgotten what is concrete. I am not going into the details of these if and the and the Tafseer and so on. That's not the purpose of this thing here. But in short, in brief, in this is part two and three, Allah subhanaw taala described who a moment is, and he gave us the qualities of mumineen five qualities, those whose hearts shiver
with the glory and majesty of allowing a name is mentioned. When his IATA recited on he sees the earth around him his Eman increases and he
has faith in Allah subhanaw taala alone, the person who established the salah and spend in the path of Allah subhanaw taala as of five things unless via enumerated, three of them are internal to the person two of them are external visible
in our action then in our lives. And then Allah subhanaw taala
said hula Iike, Hamid woman or let's say these are the people who are the true believers. They are the one we need. And for them there are stations of underbid with the rock general and they have
Allah's mercy and forgiveness will be for them. And they have risk on Kareem, they will have a beautiful provision with honor that Allah subhanho wa Taala will give them so Allah is establishing this and saying that all of these have anyway and so on. Wars are not for booty. Wars are not for conquering of territory wars are not for the perpetuation of dynasties, all the reasons for war that were and are to this day.
Wars are not for grabbing other people's resources. They're not for exploiting other people. They're not for enslaving other people and so on so forth. A four can be fought only for the establishment of justice only for the removal of oppression and only for the establishment of the deen of Allah subhanaw taala and that kind of battle that kind of a war is subject to all kinds of rules and regulations which Allah subhanaw taala specified and
and mentioned now
and those things are less volatile. I mentioned in this is number 41 OF SWORDS run file. And when I was running that I said why level and above him to mention him for anally Lehi homophone while he was asleep, well, he will CORBA Well, yeah, Tama will masa kini will be severely. Ill come to lemon to belay one and Zelina I'm Dina Yeoman for clonee Yo one college of Ayaan Walla Walla Coolessay, in Kadena Allah said, know that 1/5 of the spoils of the bat of the spoils of war that you obtain 1/5 20% belongs to Allah and the messenger Salah Salem, to the and then Allah making different categories to the near of kin, that is your own relatives, to orphans to the needy. To the wayfarer,
there is a traveler, this You must observe if you truly believe in Allah subhanaw taala and in what we sent down
On on our servant on our slave, Mohamed salah, on the day when the truth was distinguished from the falsehood which is normal for grant, the day in which the word was true, was distinguished and separated from what was false, the difference between Iman and Cooper
and on the day,
when the two armies met in battle, Allah has power over all things.
I had then lays down the law for distribution of the spoils of war.
Allah said they belong only to online messages or seller. And then Allah subhanaw taala is giving the orders of how that is to be distributed. And Allah is saying, Mr. Seller, you keep 1/5. And the rest of it is to be distributed in this way, to all those who are deserving of it. Now, Louisa, therefore used to announce,
after every battle, he would say, these are your spoils, these are your, the aneema These belong to you, my own sharing them is no more than 1/5. And even that fifth is spent on you. So bring everything if it will be, even if it's a threat, or a needle, or anything bigger or smaller, and do not take don't steal anything, do not take anything by stealth, because taking by stealth is a shameful deed and will lead to help
the famous hadith of a man who
who was killed in one of these battles, and
people were very impressed with his fighting and so on. And so surely this is a man from gender. But as soon as I saw him say, no, he's a man from Ghana, because in the Battle of hayver, he stole a clock, they stole a low robe, which was supposed to be part of the the honeymoon. So it's not a question of, you know, you might say, Oh, well you know, it's only a rope now it's a question is
you is the is the importance of following the order of Allah subhanho wa Taala generated with regard to to this and
everything else in Islam.
So once the ayat was revealed on the way back,
near a big sand dune, Ross was salam divided the spoils on all the fighters, after he took 1/5 and when they reached a sufferer, he ordered that two of the prisoners should be executed. One was another in Harris, and the other one was about being a remote because they had persecuted the Muslims in Makkah, and they had this deep hatred for Allah subhanaw taala and also loss of Salah. And they were sort of very, you know, they tortured Muslims and so on in Makkah. So, this was something that was
was decreed for them.
was it was a lesson for the for all such people.
Obama numerate started crying, he forgot his pride and so on. And he said, Who will look after my children jasola salah, Salah, and maybe Salah Salem,
said, the fire of hell.
By Robin Moore it was the man who took the entrails of a sheep. And when we sort of Salem in Makkah was in sujood he brought this whole
filthy mess the entrails of the sheep and he threw them on Rasulullah sallallahu was blessed head and neck
Zahra melody Allah on her. She came and she watched all of that offense he removed all that. He also tried to strangle a saucer with his cloak and it will oversee therefore the law who intervened and released resources. So earlier we talked about the law who was the one who was given the task of executing these two and he did that.
At Aloha, which was a suburb of Medina, the Muslim army was received by all the people that were rejoicing and they came to congratulate ourselves and Salem will say it's been Jose Alonso as a as a spokesperson.
Of the other people
He said he made his $100 bill out of it.
And then he said,
he asked also says
that, He said, I thought it was just a matter of going to catch up this caravan. And he said, If I had known that this was a real war, then I would never have stayed behind, I would definitely have come. And he was very sincere even be. And that was all sort of answered. And he said, Yes, I believe you. And he.
And he accepted his excuse.
as soon as I said, I've now entered Medina,
in a new dimension, which is the, in the military field.
In consequence, a lot of
when they when they came back as a victorious gender, a lot of people accepted Islam. People accept Islam for various reasons, right? Not all of those reasons are, because they are convinced
theologically about the superiority or the truth of Islam, but it doesn't matter. The thing is that once somebody enters Islam, and they start practicing Islam, and Hamdulillah, it is our hope that they will see the true beauty of the religion. So no matter why somebody comes into Islam, and Billa, we welcome them, we don't
we don't hold them to task for that.
As long as, again, as I told you, all the sort of wars of all the rules of war, Islam is the only
religion where you are obligated to treat your prisoners of war very well, not to give them any kind of, you know, pain and suffering for torture, torture is a very big thing, not even to deny them anything. So to the extent that
many times the captors, used to give captives, their bread, which was the more valued part of the meal, and just eat some dates themselves. There are stories of some prisoners of war, accepting Islam on the basis of this one thing. And they said, What kind of people are you that you give us the best part of your food and you eat something which is of less value, and they said, This is what Islam teaches us, we do not treat even prisoners of war.
Now the prisoners of war.
This was a
new thing again, because until then, they were no prisoners of war. This is the first battle. So this became a issue became a problem to be solved.
Because it was a new thing in the history of Islam. So as soon as I said, I'm consulted Okara Sidious
and oriental Katara Delana, as to what he should do with the prisoners, along the lines of that no reason a thumb should take ransom, you should keep them or hold them for ransom. And he said they are, they are our relatives. So we don't want to kill them. And this money will give us will help us will compensate for you know, to some extent for what was stolen from us. And maybe Allah's rather will guide them to Islam. So, that is a beautiful, soft heart to say let us give them O'Meara Delano said no, he said execute all of them.
He said they are the leaders of disbelief of cobalt, they are our enemies they came here with the purpose of
of destroying Islam and destroyed killing a source of Salah. So he said they should be executed
as soon as that salaam took the opinion of overseas and he decided not to exude
nuts had been wild of the land also was one of them who
who advised that the prisoners should be executed to the opinion up obviously there are the lungs because he himself was a very soft hearted person.
The night the next day so then our little Katara. Delano
game and he came to see them as a Salaam and he found that both of our cities are Delano and Wasco. Salem will repeat
they will cry. So said an hour ago Alana was very shocked. And he said You also know what happened and why you cry. And he said you please tell me I want to know because
if you are crying for some reason that
you know that I also should know then I will cry with you and if it is something that I
maybe I'm not
so affected by that. Then I will not
To cry, but I will also not allow you know, I mean, I will pretend to cry,
even though I may not be really affected by it, but I will.
So is it time to sort of be nice to the
rasa sallam said to him,
that Allah subhanaw taala had revealed for about this issue of keeping prisoners or executing them, and I was about that again so to run file as 67 and 68 Allah said Makana, the NABI Yun a Hakuna Allahu Allah had euskera Phil Irby, to redo our other duniya Allahu EULA Hara Allah or as us or Hakeem
Lola Kitab woman Allah He Saba Carla must suck on FEMA, a hospital mother will not leave
early does not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war, that is to keep them and then free them with ransom until he has made
until he has executed his enemies in the land. You desire the good of this world that is money of ransom, but Allah desires for you the Hereafter. And Allah is almighty always worried, not a previous attainment from Allah severe trauma would have touched you for what you took, which is the
which is the ransom. Now, this is Allah subhanaw taala as
in the previous
or denmat, which was not mentioned in this
just so that we can
complete this part of the topic. This is from Surah Surah Mohammed, where Allah subhanaw taala said
Allah Subhana Allah mentioned in the whole war, the issue of fighting and then Allah subhanaw taala
said that he gave Allah you give them this,
this freedom, where he said there are thereafter is the time which is after the battle has been fought, there are thereafter the time either for generosity that is to free them without ransom or for ransom. So, Allah is saying first we will finish all the battles and so on once you have the power, then you should do this, but since Allah always revealed this, unless was there or did not tell us it therefore I will not
allow, I will not punish you or punish this particular decision. Many people have made have seen him have spoken about this. Some people say also because all sorts of salaam made matura he checked and consulted with his Sahaba Therefore Allah
did not send His punishment and of course wala Allah Allah knows best.
So there is in this ad that we saw the ads with mom, but it there's an A there is a scope
taking ransom. So therefore allows one to not punish anyone. But
because they took prisoners and and ransom them before
the area could be subdued, and was monetized did not like that being done at that time.
people were who came to us, they were not just prisoners of war, but these were the
these were the US criminals of McCarthy were the people who persecuted Muslims who tortured them who killed them who confiscated all their money, and they call the property and the you know, they tried to do whatever they could do to harm Islam and the Muslims. So these people were
I mean in today, if you look at the look at war trials and
what kind of penal law applies, you will see that these people would have been sentenced to death or to life imprisonment. So that is exactly what Islam is saying. The ransom of the prisoners was between 4001 1004 1000 dirhams in accordance with the financial situation of the captives family. Another form of an answer was was a certain set that if
anyone who could read and write on the business could teach 10 children
to write and D then they will not have
they will not be released without without any ransom freelancer. So what the child
became proficient. The instructor would be free. Another group of prisoners were released, undressing without anything free. Because they were poor,
Zanna. radula on her. Xena, then I've been Josh. I love the love I know there's no doubt daughter and not the judge. Then I've been Mohamed Salah Salem, the daughter of Rosa Selim paid the ransom of her husband, I will ask the necklace. The Muslims released a prisoner and return the necklace to resource salaam because he that belong to
belong to Collier, Cora Delano. On the condition that I will ask must allow Santa Clara to migrate to Medina which he did.
So with this vn today starts inshallah we'll talk more about the
let me let me end with one more small detail
in captivity also was Soheil with our Alana disband was
the man who negotiated the treaty of Davia later on after this, and this is also the man who in the when the wars of rindo are happening in the Tower of of August
7 Our was the orator he was the chief of the forage, who kept maca together he did not allow the people in Makkah to, to remote but he was a captive in Medina. So when
they hear the good auditors, technically speaking, he was
he was a US a dangerous person because equal rouse people against Islam. So, what are the hours give me the permission jasola I will pull out his front teeth. So he will start this week and on top.
What a sorceress refused.
And he said this is not for us.
We do not
we do not you know.
we don't we don't torture and we don't.
We do not
disable and so on prisoners This is not from for us. And if we do that, then we have to fear the wrath of Allah subhanaw taala sadly, Nomad
was was was he was a he was in an aura. They caught him and they kept him
there and he was sent as a
as a ransom for our Sofia and son who was captured in his battle of mother and
he was given the
and so Hey, no, not right. I said it was I've been I'm not what became his ransom.
He asked us to help us to understand the beautiful, this beautiful Dean and beautiful history and to live in a way which pleases Him. geladeira was Allah Allah will claim early use I believe in Africa.
