rather Hiva Hamdulillahi, Rabbil Alameen, WA Salatu was Salam. Ala Mia Eva mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam to Sliven cathedral.

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

Sisters.

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

It come to the fourth of the lessons from the battle or HUD

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

where we can look at how Allah subhanaw taala treated mistakes of the Sahaba

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

it's interesting to note that Allah Subhana Allah never praise the Muslims for victory in any battle.

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

On the other hand, Allah subhanaw taala reprimanded the Muslims on the issue of prisoners of war and brother, even though the Muslims won the battle

00:00:46--> 00:01:03

and loads of arterra did not praise them for their bravery or for winning. This is because all victory is from Allah subhanaw taala alone, and by his leap by his permission, it is not something that can or should be ascribed to one's own efforts.

00:01:04--> 00:01:31

Allah subhanaw taala wants to save the Muslims from feelings of pride or arrogance. And so in the Battle of Mother, he took them to task for asking for ransom and said that if it were not for the fact that ransom had been permitted, he would have punished the Muslims for asking for ransom, instead of executing the prisons. In Ohio, on the other hand, Allah subhanaw taala said he has already forgiven

00:01:32--> 00:01:49

now when the Muslims were at fault of disobeying Rasulullah Salah and leaving their posts for the love of booty, and so they suffered a great defeat and were injured both physically and psychologically. Allah subhanaw taala raised their spirits by saying that he had already forgiven them.

00:01:52--> 00:01:53

Number five,

00:01:54--> 00:02:06

lesson taking part in the struggle and not losing heart. This is very important Allah said work I am in the vision cartella mahari be unocha See room

00:02:07--> 00:03:02

wahana Lima Asaba home visa vie the labour mother all four of us the Kano Allahu your hipbones sabe Americana cola home Illa and Carlo Robina fear Lana wooburn Our is Rafa fee Marina was a bit at the Amana once or neither COVID McAfee for other who will Lajos but dunya waha Sinha, Salah FIRA de wala who you heard boot Mosinee, Allah subhanho data set and many prophets, that is from many amongst the prophets, 14 Allah subhanaw taala scars and along with him for large bands of religious scholars, but they never lost heart for that which did befall them in Allah's way, meaning that they, in some battles they would have lost despite the fact that they were all pious people, nor did they weaken

00:03:02--> 00:03:08

nor degrade themselves and Allah subhanaw taala loves the sovereignty, the people who are patient and steadfast.

00:03:10--> 00:03:16

And they said nothing about our rub forgive our sins and our transgressions

00:03:18--> 00:03:37

in keeping, you know, keeping our duty is to establish our feet firmly and give us victory over our enemies or the disbelievers so Allah gave them the reward of this world and excellent reward of the Hereafter. And Allah loves the ol mercy No.

00:03:38--> 00:03:56

Allah's wrath Allah gives us examples from our predecessors that they made Toba for their sins and they remain steadfast and asked Allah subhanaw taala for forgiveness and victory last round until accepted this dua and made them victorious.

00:03:57--> 00:04:08

So again, let's say that if we are winning, we must not become arrogant. If we are losing, we must not lose hope.

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

In both cases, we must ask Allah Samantha's forgiveness, and continue in the good effort.

00:04:17--> 00:04:59

Unless voluntary I mentioned is Agia natural law he will forget what I ate and NASA Yeah, the whole loan fee lie of Weida for some baby handed up the cost of inheritable let's run into low No, I don't want to go into the detail of this later on in another time for that but just to make the point, that when you see the loser of Allah when you see the help of Allah and how will you see that not through conquering of territory and not through, you know, loot and so I'm glad to see that help of Allah subhanaw taala coming when people enter because of your efforts, people enter the deen of Islam, not among Hindus, but in large multitudes. What must you do there?

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

is for Sunday we hummed in. Praise Allah subhanaw taala make it as be was stuck through and seek forgiveness.

00:05:09--> 00:05:32

What is the forgiveness you did did a good thing underlayers effort successful forgiveness of arrogance, forgiveness from ascribing the success to your self forgiveness from boasting about it forgiveness from imagining that it was your efforts which helped because it was the will of Allah. Hearts are changed by Allah subhanaw taala not by people.

00:05:33--> 00:05:44

Just as the protest if somebody says, forcible conversion is impossible, which is a fact. So conversion by the sword or by the gun is impossible, which is a fact. Similarly,

00:05:45--> 00:05:58

therefore, ascribing conversion to your effort is equally false. People convert for their own reasons that they change, I believe, because the new belief makes sense to them.

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

So it's very important to understand is make is the foreign Toba when you see success in the deed, never ascribe it to yourself. Point number six consequences of disobedience also results in a loss right that doesn't Yeah, you went

00:06:14--> 00:06:28

to LA Hawa to Rasul Allah, but will remain calm for internatia atone Fisher in for dou il Allah He was fully in control to me Nora Billa he will you'll be laughing at the lick.

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

Sir.

00:06:31--> 00:06:48

Allah say that we will believe, obey Allah and obey the messenger sallallahu alayhi salam and those of you and those of you who are in authority, so, the Muslims who are the leaders or or in other cases, the Muslim scholars to believe that

00:06:50--> 00:07:36

and if you differ in anything amongst yourselves refer that to Allah subhanaw taala and his message so listen, if you believe in Allah in the last day, that is better and more suitable for final determination for your final success. So referring to Allah subhana wa Tada and Salah means to refer to the Quran and Sunnah, in any matter that we may differ in. This is the fundamental principle of the Sharia, that where there is a text we go by that and when there is a dispute, we refer to the text which is the Quran and Sunnah. We do not try to change the text or try to interpret the text in our own way, which makes it suitable for us, meaning to twist the text or to change the test text or

00:07:36--> 00:07:50

whatever do that. In order to make it compatible with whatever we wanted to do. This is Hara. This is something which is depending on what particular aspect you change, it can become shake it can become. So where there is a text

00:07:51--> 00:07:55

where there is the word of Allah or the word also salah. We don't

00:07:56--> 00:07:57

find ourselves

00:07:58--> 00:08:16

preferring dunya over archaea. This issue is one that has remained with us from the beginning we ask Allah subhanaw taala for His mercy. The story of Muslims with a booty of warriors sattva Oba bin Salman said that the eyes are so dull and fall

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

we're

00:08:20--> 00:08:25

revealed because the Sahaba disputed about the booty. And this is in the Battle of,

00:08:26--> 00:08:29

of against the wonders of

00:08:33--> 00:08:43

the Battle of money and the conquest of Western Europe again, if you look at it came to a halt. Because also because of disputes of Bucha

00:08:45--> 00:08:46

model

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

the the the

00:08:53--> 00:08:55

the governor of Underoos

00:08:56--> 00:09:01

abdominal cavity. He was the Emir and was getting them

00:09:02--> 00:09:36

into God from Spain. So God is modern France. And they were just 100 kilometers from Paris after conquering two thirds of God, which is modern de France. But by then they were loaded with booty and their spirits suffered as a result, the soldiers became more concerned about the booty and protecting it than about fighting. So the Muslims were defeated in the Battle of Tours, which is also called the Battle of boy tears, and the Battle of the highway of the martyrs. Monica Billa, the shahada,

00:09:37--> 00:09:48

Monica binotto shahada, the Battle of the highway of the martyrs because of the number of Muslims who were killed in the battle, and this was fought on the 10th of October 732.

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

It resulted in the victory of the Frankish soldiers Frankish

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

And the Aquitania forces led by Charles Charles Martel over the invading Muslim forces of the world Khilafah led by Abdul Rahman, tragically the governor of the loose of the Rama, Abdullah himself got killed USAID in his back. Seven several historians such as Edward Gibbon, have credited the Christian victory in the battle as an important factor in curtailing the Islamization of Western Europe.

00:10:29--> 00:10:33

Imagine if that battle had succeeded, the whole of Europe wouldn't be Muslim.

00:10:35--> 00:10:44

It took another 800 years but the battle was the beginning this battle was the beginning of the end of Muslim ruling. And the cause of it was the love of booty Indonesia.

00:10:45--> 00:10:47

So it's very, very important.

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

Point number eight that the religion Islam comes above

00:10:56--> 00:10:57

everything else.

00:10:58--> 00:11:11

Islam comes above everything else. I'm not monitored. I said. Well, now I'm Will Hamedan in LA Rasool are the highlight main committee here also for imata output Elon collab to carb eco

00:11:12--> 00:11:21

y en la vie either FPV fillet, Allah ha she was a GCSE level Shaqiri

00:11:22--> 00:11:26

unless around that I said Mohamed SLM is no more than a messenger mean, he's

00:11:27--> 00:11:40

not anything more than that. That is the highest status. That is the most powerful, most important, being on the face of the earth, which is the messenger. But he's not God. He's not Allah. He's not worthy of worship.

00:11:41--> 00:11:58

So why was Salam is no more than a messenger and indeed, many messengers have passed away before him, if he dies, or is killed? Will you then turn back on your heels as disbelievers and he who turns back on his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allah

00:11:59--> 00:12:02

and Allah will give a reward to those who are grateful.

00:12:03--> 00:12:10

So Allah, saying that was a solemn is human, and so he will die one day.

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

If he dies,

00:12:14--> 00:12:15

will you turn away from Islam

00:12:23--> 00:12:48

and if you do terribly wrong Islam, Allah says Allah does not need you. But if you stick to the religion, Allah subhanaw taala will reward you. This shows that Islam is not dependent on any individual, including the noble person of Rasul Allah, He Salah Salem and that victory is not dependent on any particular leader. Allah is with the believers, if they are true to the faith,

00:12:50--> 00:12:56

but will not support them with the change their focus or commitment away from Islam.

00:12:58--> 00:13:25

Even if Rasulillah Salam is himself with them. Think about this. The Battle of the defeat happened even though the Novosel Salem was built because of people who disobeyed him over Garcinia Delano said to the people, when resources and passed away whoever worship Muhammad, Salah Muhammad, Salah Salem is dead, where worship whoever worshipped Allah, Allah never dies. Then he decided This I

00:13:27--> 00:13:31

say then Allah, Allah. He said that it was as if

00:13:34--> 00:13:37

I had heard it for the first time in Monday.

00:13:40--> 00:13:47

We come to the way that was sort of Salem was directed by Los Valterra to deal with the archers

00:13:48--> 00:13:54

who disobeyed Him and the Manasa T who had abandoned the Muslims and we're trying to discourage them

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

with the archers

00:13:59--> 00:14:23

Allah subhanaw taala said for me ma Rama demon Allah Heylin, della one Oh, Quinta, false one volleys all khalaby. Leung fondo mean holy fire for I know, was still filled with shabby home filled empty for either our Center for the color of Allah. In allah how you have booted with our Killeen,

00:14:25--> 00:14:29

hollows around a data set and by the mercy

00:14:31--> 00:14:33

of Allah, you dealt with them gently.

00:14:35--> 00:14:57

And had you been severe and harsh hearted they would have broken away from you. So pass over their fault, ignore their faults and ask Allah's forgiveness for them and consult them in the affairs. Then when you have taken a decision, put your trust in Allah Samaritan. Certainly a loss of hundreds and I love those who put their trust in Him.

00:14:58--> 00:14:59

Those are the

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

I called it a mercy from him that also lies A salaam was able to deal with the Sahaba with softness,

00:15:07--> 00:15:24

in this case with the archers, As Salam is being asked to forgive the archers and ask forgiveness for them, and to continue to make sure even though the shura made earlier led to the defeat, probably, and then take a firm decision and hat.

00:15:25--> 00:16:00

And this euro, which, as we were saying, liquid defeat, refers to the shura that was made before the Battle of Akkad. Whereas rasilla Masters have all their advice. The older ones among them, they said, let us stay in Medina and fight because for the outside forces to come and fight in Medina is almost impossible. They will be sad, they will be ambushed at every turn. And so we will win. But the younger ones, especially the ones who are not taking button, but and so on, they were very enthusiastic and they said no, let us go out and fight.

00:16:01--> 00:16:22

Eventually, the sorcerer's took their advice. And then when he went inside to change and put on his armor, the Zabba felt that they had probably pushed him too much. So they asked Hamza Delano to go inside and to tell him that they were willing to go by whatever was was Rosella monitoring them to do and they didn't want to push

00:16:24--> 00:16:35

himself at that time. He was also inclined to stay in Medina and, you know, allow the enemy to come to them. That would have been

00:16:36--> 00:16:42

probably a better million time military tactic but since he had agreed, he said it is not

00:16:44--> 00:16:57

appropriate for an OB to take off his armor once he has put it on so therefore we will continue with that with whatever we decided. So here Allah is Rhonda saying even though that particular Shura decision that they took,

00:16:59--> 00:17:04

Allah Allah maybe that was the reason why they lost the battle because they went out there instead of staying at home.

00:17:07--> 00:17:15

Let's say still, ask advice, keep them together with you and the fact that you were kind with them and soft with them. Help them to stay with

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

with the menagerie on the other hand, I'm not gonna say boba as our comb Yeoman Takayama I Neva be easily Allah he will he LML meaning Well well

00:17:28--> 00:17:38

well yeah I live in London and SOCO Aquila home Diallo through feasibility lie with Carlo low level okay little leftover and

00:17:40--> 00:18:01

leftover Anna come home little gouffre OMA is in a caribou minimoon Lima Ania colonna, BFI, him Malays, a few coulby The same with the tongues but not in the rats were low Alamo, be my tomato, Allah said and what you suffered of the disaster on the day of the Battle of a hot

00:18:03--> 00:18:22

when the two armies met was by the Leave of Allah, in order that he might test the believers, and that you might test the hypocrites, it was said to them come fight in the way of Allah, or at least defend yourself and they said Had we known that fighting will take place we would have certainly followed through. So this was all you know the playing games,

00:18:23--> 00:18:39

they were that day nearer to disbelief than to faith saying with their mouths, what was not in their hearts. And Allah has full knowledge of what they can see. Unless rather than did not punish them enough to pin a that material expose the hypocrisy.

00:18:41--> 00:18:51

This also shows that the logic that it is first necessary that all Muslims were must become obedient to Allah subhanaw taala

00:18:52--> 00:19:18

and righteous before victory can come this belief is wrong. There will always be those who sin and those who are disobedient and so on. Their conduct affects them, but not the entire Oma. It is the conduct and the sins of this special group of five almanzora Especially in group which affects all the people who are normally

00:19:20--> 00:19:46

pious and who are the leaders of the of the community. When they commit sins when they do something wrong. This affects everybody. So these are the core group who are true to Allah subhanaw taala and are sincere about Islam. If they start singing, and if they start doing something wrong there unless there is punishment comes the desertion of the Novocaine, who are 1/3 of the whole army did not affect the outcome of God

00:19:48--> 00:19:59

unless you give them victory, but it was a mutiny of the archers who are only 50 And after that, 14 mutinied not even all the 50 only 14 that caused the defeat because they were

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

The Sahaba and they were good people.

00:20:03--> 00:20:29

Well, Allah who is the who is the host Sona homebuilding he had either for Shilton, Medina Zaton Ville every what I say to him embody Morocco ma to him boo Minko my real dunya Amin Kuma UD doula Hera, some sort of Aquaman whom Leah will tell you what I call the Alpha unkown Bala who LUFA linalyl Mini.

00:20:30--> 00:20:31

Allah said,

00:20:32--> 00:20:56

and Allah did indeed fulfill his promise to you when you are killing your enemy, with this provision until that moment when you lost courage and fell to disputing about the order, meaning the order or Salah and disobeyed after he showed you the booty which you love. So after I'm not sure do the booty which will love you disobeyed the Rasul Allah is

00:20:58--> 00:21:09

among you are some that desire this world and some that desire the hereafter. Then he geladeira who made you flee from them your enemy, that he might test you.

00:21:10--> 00:21:23

But surely you forgive you. And Allah is Most gracious to the believers. Allah subhanaw taala clearly said that the cause of defeat was not the monarchy.

00:21:24--> 00:21:39

But those who gave proceedings to the dunya or the akhira from among the salmon, observing masala, the landlord said, I did not know that they were among us, those who designed the duniya over the hard shoulder showed up

00:21:41--> 00:21:46

this fatal weakness and showed its

00:21:47--> 00:21:49

result in the defeat.

00:21:51--> 00:21:57

And the loss of our data showed us it result in the defeat.

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

These are the lessons that we learned from the battle of our heart. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to

00:22:09--> 00:22:15

to help us to learn what he wanted to teach us. He listens.

00:22:16--> 00:22:19

And we ask others to

00:22:20--> 00:22:26

help us to learn the lessons and to benefit from this in a true sense. Where we

00:22:29--> 00:22:35

where we are able to do something and live our lives in a way that is pleasing to Allah. So

00:22:40--> 00:22:46

we've already closed this particular so let me talk to you about one more of us via because it was

00:22:48--> 00:22:52

this is one in which the Ayat of Serato cough

00:22:53--> 00:23:14

missiles were mentored with 400 Java, and it's called the husband was about to record the Academy's rags our walls are actually Ravel ourselves we went out in Gaza which was a Salem and I was one of six men who were sharing a camera so they didn't have material wise nothing much with them.

00:23:16--> 00:23:33

And he said the this was the state that we were in where six men which and then is the skin of my feet was peeling off and my nails are falling out. So we tied pieces of cloth to our feet as we walked the enemy fled and there was no fighting

00:23:34--> 00:23:38

a loss of antenna described this whole thing and

00:23:39--> 00:23:40

also

00:23:41--> 00:23:52

give them the permission to pray and told the How to Pray is to have the prayer of fear meaning a prayer to be prayed at the time in battle

00:23:53--> 00:24:17

way that can defeat him and Lahoma salata volta home dar Eva to me no Monica wala although as they hit our home for either such as to Bali or going on well water Eichenwald Tito Eva to know for lembu some low value solo hike our hello hello home. Well as Leah

00:24:18--> 00:24:27

For what the law the law firm to note of Laura and Ashley had equal MDRT come for me rune on April May Allah Tala

00:24:28--> 00:24:29

What are you

00:24:31--> 00:24:37

gonna be for people as Mottolino go to Martha Todaro was

00:24:40--> 00:24:59

in a lot that little caffeine or other Mahina for you. They're called a tomo solid guru. BMO burrowed over I do know it will be for either at the man for either for either tomorrow and then don't Akeem Salah you

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

That's all that I can add. I mean I keytab quota. Allah said when you

00:25:08--> 00:25:10

personalize and sell them, or messenger Muhammad

00:25:12--> 00:25:35

are among them and did them in Salah. Let one party of them stand up in Salah with you taking the ram with them. When they finish their salute, let them take their positions behind and let the other party come up which has not yet prayed and let them pray with you. Taking all precautions and bearing arms, those who disbelieve wish if you are negligent

00:25:37--> 00:25:47

of your arms and your baggage to attack you in a single rush but there is no sin on you if you put away your arms because of the inconvenience of rare or because you are ill.

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

But, but take every precaution

00:25:52--> 00:25:53

for yourself.

00:25:54--> 00:26:08

Allah Verily Allah has prepared a humiliating torment for the disbelievers when you have finished a Salah, which is the Yama remember a lot and in sitting down and lying down on your sides. But when you are free from danger

00:26:09--> 00:26:18

again, establish a salah Abu Salah vary the prayer is enjoined on the believers at fixed hours.

00:26:20--> 00:26:40

This shows the importance of Salah not only is Salah prescribed in all circumstances including during battle, but it is prescribed at fixed times. Think about that you might not an imposition. You would want to pray especially during battle because that's when you want the hell almost done and salah is the connection with a Muslim.

00:26:43--> 00:26:56

And this Allah is prescribed at fixed times. It is extremely important to adhere to these times and to ensure that we don't leave Salah deliberately for any reason. Because the leaves are deliberately scuffle and renders the person out of his lab.

00:26:57--> 00:27:05

As well as Allah Salam said Allah had, I had a lady by now Boehner who has fallen out of the hat or had Kafala.

00:27:08--> 00:27:20

He said the I had the dividing line, the covenant the boundary between them and us, meaning the non believers in the believer is the one who has left Salah, the one who was left Salah has left Islam has committed

00:27:22--> 00:27:38

the only Ibadah in Islam, the only act of worship in Islam for which there is no excuse, which has to be done at all, in any circumstance is Salah. For every other about that there are conditions where people do not do it. But for Salah there is no excuse.

00:27:40--> 00:27:53

Standing sitting lying down moving your head moving your fingers with your eyelids, we must pray in all circumstances. There is no circumstance in which prayer is

00:27:54--> 00:28:06

not required. This also shows the falsity of the argument of those who calls or our charity and don't pray, such as those who are placing themselves out of Islam by their own actions.

00:28:13--> 00:28:17

And as soon as I said I'm appointed Gods amount of the asset and above the ambition

00:28:18--> 00:28:25

that night when they camped, and while a battle of the land was guarding and amaro sleeping one of the enemy

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

shot at

00:28:31--> 00:28:35

about three arrows, one after another after the third arrow.

00:28:36--> 00:28:39

And imagine this is the man standing and break out of

00:28:41--> 00:28:43

the body. Obviously, yes,

00:28:45--> 00:28:56

he was wearing chainmail. But despite that, they are Oh penetrates they are hits. So there is the impact of the the energy of the arrow plus the world. So bleeding.

00:28:57--> 00:29:04

And after the third arrow above will be shared with Elon. He woke up a moment yesterday.
