Revell hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Chaffin MBI even more serene, Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam to see when Kathy and
my brothers and sisters, we come to one of the most important one of the most critical
incidents of the Sierra, which is the
Saudi Arabia, the Treaty of Libya.
And I'll tell you in a minute, why I consider it to be
one of the most critical if not the most critical incident in the theater. We saw in the last lecture, that in 627 ad, in the
fifth year of hijra,
also, as SLM was attacked in Madeira, the sort of buzzwords,
all the buzzwords to hunt duck, the Battle of the trends of the Battle of the confidence, and what happened with that.
Now the following year 628.
And as always, I seldom saw a dream. And in this dream, he saw that he was making top of the cup, along with his habit and the dreams of the Gambia, Alaimo salaam are ye this is her come from Allah subhanaw taala. This does not apply to dreams that we see no matter what the dream is. It's not a it's not a come from a light is not a hit.
But for the beer. It was love. It was revelation. It was
so Rosaura, Salem
announced that we were going he said he announced that he was going to
Makkah to the kava, to make Amara and only this was not a battle or there's no
there was no booty or anything to be looked forward to. This was there will be there will be traveling in a haram this wouldn't be something which was only for the purpose of a mother worship. And he invited whoever wanted to join him to join him. So 1500 Muslims joined us organizer Salah
which were from Medina, they were the answer. And along with them also some of their allies from the weather when
they came to totally 1500 plus people
as they were traveling to to Makkah, first of all, they didn't take any weapons with them, just their
Say the number of them photogra Delano, always the pragmatist, always very practical person. He multiple times he asked him a source of celibacy jasola Salah Salem, let us take weapons let us take, you know, whatever we have to take. And when we say weapons here, we're not talking about siege engines and stuff you're talking about more ammunition in the sense of more arrows and more spears and stuff like this. And he said, Let's take our armors take this. Eventually, Salam
agreed for extra weapons and so on to be carried on camels, but those camels to be
separated from the main caravan of the Amara pilgrims so that it's not mistaken that the Muslims are coming to fight a battle. So this was that
but as they were coming along the courage heard of this
group of Muslims with a similar set of leading them coming to Marcus obviously this thought This is war. This is going to be a battle. So they sent a 200 Cavalry force or 200
Watt cavalry warriors
to attack a sorcerer Salaam and these group of Sahaba what Allah subhanaw taala informed the VLA, Salah about this and Surah Surah Salam took a unconventional route.
So the cavalry and this group of pilgrims never met, and a battle was avoided.
They camped at a place called with Abia, which was close to Makkah, which was
you know, a place where from where you would go and move on.
And then sent
negotiate and to seek permission to enter my car and move over.
Now if you just
Think about this for a second.
There are two very glaring things that,
you know, strike you in the face. Firstly, is that the Kaaba was the place of pilgrimage House of Allah. It was a sanctuary, it was a place of peace. It was a place of no war.
Any person from anywhere in the world, of course, in this case, it meant from anywhere in the hijas. Anybody in Arabia, anywhere in the world technically, could go to the Kaaba to worship. And there was no need for anyone to seek the permission of the kurush who were the custodians of the kava, to do that. There was no passport, there was no visa, there was no need for someone to seek permission to say Oh, can we come come with none of that.
Yet, in the case of resources, he felt the need to do that because of the hostile environment. So first is this
environment which was not hostile even for the enemies of the college.
Because in Makkah, in the in the Haram
in the mosquito, ha, the whole Haram Sharif, the entire area, the
the boundaries of the Haram, were considered to be sanctuary were considered to be places where you, you could not fight you will not hunt, you couldn't do anything, anything violent.
Yet, in the case of resources, this
guarantee was not a guarantee.
Second thing is you think about who was this hostility against?
This was not a stranger. This was
a person from the fresh their own tribe, not just their own tribe, but this was the creme de la creme of this tribe. This was the Banu Hashim Manu Abdulmutallab, the grandson of Abdulmutallab who discovered Zumba,
right? I mean in there, they didn't have a pantheon and they didn't have a priestly class. But if you want to draw parallels, this was the priestly class. And this was the first family in that context of people who were the custodians of the kava Abdulmutallab was the man who had the key of the Kaaba, when our art came at the time it was was, was born the year that Rasulillah Salam was born.
And that was a from from this date 48 years before, because he was, you know,
after he got not 48 It's by sums to the eight Hijiri add 13 years of number one plus another eight years. So that is 21 years, right?
He was 40
He got first time he got what he saw 40 plus 21 is 61 years. So 61 years later,
his grandson comes and he's denied entry into McCamish amazing, and how paradoxical and how ironic.
So, the the the laws and the rules of hospitality of the college which were, which are and the atoms for which the atoms have been so and introduce them in the atoms are very hospitable people.
These laws were suspended for the one who deserved that hospitality or honor perhaps the most because he was one of them. He was from there, from the nobility, so to speak. And very specifically, the direct descendant, the grandpa, the the blood of the man who was the custodian of the Kaaba,
on whose dua Allah subhanaw taala saved the Kaaba and Maka from Abraha. And all of that.
That was the story. So anyway,
negotiators to try to find out to try to get permission.
The Qureshi refused, they sent their negotiators to tell them the sources won't leave and go away and so on so forth. And that didn't happen. And so as I said, at one point, he said and say that I was born in a family
who was from
also from Croatia,
from Romania, he was he was among the the big leaders of Manomaya.
He was a cousin of Sofia.
And so, so he sent him a
had to negotiate on his behalf. Say that was one of the Law No.
We will also unsuccessful and he didn't return for a long time. And so rumor started that he had been killed. You hadn't been killed he was he was safe. The interesting thing is
not only was he safe, but the man who gave him
protection. He said to him, you are welcome to do over we have no problem with that if you want to make them or do make
say that has been said or the alarm. He said No, unless the profits are gonna make somewhere I will not make so he remained in Makkah
for all that duration. And he did not make Amara and he continued to pray Salat Salah as possible because he said I'm traveling I'm not. I'm not home and I'm not at rest. So that's on a side note, but this happened. Now when this rumor came. A rumor started at rumor happened that Southern Osvaldo Delano had been killed. This was a seller called the on the people with him. And he went he went to the
camp of the banana job. In Libya. Apparently there were his family from Madeira. And he's sat under, under a tree there. And he took by he took allegiance from everyone to say that they were ready to fight and to death to avenge the death of us Bermuda follow the law.
So they put his hand in his hat and Allah subhanaw taala revealed Quran about this, this this whole by is called by to read what I must have done and he will come out to say that Allah subhanaw taala has forgiven those who gave the pledge with Rasul allah sallallahu sallam, and I was one that I said you do live over ad, Allah has handled over their head.
In the case of in that pledge, Russell's arsenal, took pledge on behalf of Mandel Delano himself, he said this is the handle was banned. That is my kind of Mohamed salah. And he said, I take a pledge on behalf of a Smart Fan or the alarm. So later on, people criticize have been been a fan of Elon to say that he is not included in the Sahaba, about whom Allah Subhana Allah Anwar run, that Allah is pleased with them, and they are pleased with Allah, because they pledged to fight until death for the sake of Allah for the sake of justice, and they said has not been a fan of the law, no myths that he was not in that there are two big pieces of evidence to falsify this claim this false claim.
One is that Satan ossabaw didn't go away by himself. He had been sent by the sorcerer salaam to market to negotiate for this whole thing. And he was detained by the court. So he was he was like a prisoner there, he was not allowed to go back. So this is the first thing the second thing was that rustlers or asylum took pledge on behalf of was one been a fan of the allowance. Therefore, the pleasure was once it was part of the law, no is superior to the pleasure of anyone because it was the hands the blessed hand of the Prophet alayhi salam, which took the pledge of say there have been a fan of Delano on his behalf.
So, Al Hamdulillah does happen.
Then, a man called Sohail with Amber was sent by the Federation to negotiate
a treaty. So when resources are seldom sourcewell been able to come in he said this is the handler this is a good sign because Soheil is is derivative of the word from the word Sal. And Sal means to ease so he said, Inshallah, Allah will ease matters.
So ever, ever was one of the leaders of the Federation in Makkah, he was a good orator, and a powerful man, he had two sons,
one of whom had already become Muslim, and he was in Philadelphia with resources. The second son had not become Muslim, and he wanted to become Muslim. And so well, we never heard of that. And he imprisoned him, he
punished him he maybe beat him up or something, and then he locked him up. So he was in chains in Makkah, now all this was not known to resources levadas this was this had happened.
So in our case, so Wednesday, we are given this treaty was negotiation was being done.
And Serbia put forward his proposals, Russell's has agreed to this proposal. Now, just to quickly give you a an idea on the proposals. The main points of this, of this treaty was that there will be a truce between the two parties, meaning between
the seller and the courage for 10 years for tenure, there will be a truce, there's no no more hostilities. And you know, there will be
good relations between the two.
The second one
Was that whoever flees, leaves Mohamed Salah and goes to the college, without the permission of his guardian in this case, himself will be sent back to the crash that so if somebody from the holidays comes to Mohammed Salim so if it was somebody from Macau wants to, or wants to or accepts Islam and wants to join
in Medina, this person will be sent back.
So, someone from the Quraysh without the permission of his guardian
of meaning, that the the, you know, whatever tribal authority
comes to Medina, this person will be sent back.
But if someone
the Muslims comes to the horizon, the opposite side, they will not be sent back.
This is a completely unequal thing. If a person accepts Islam and comes to the comes to the Muslims, he must be sent back. Whereas, whereas if a Muslim wants to leave Islam and go to the chorus, no questions asked, he will not be sent.
Third point was whoever wishes to enter into a covenant to have a treaty with wa Salaam is allowed to do that. And whoever wishes to enter into a covenant with the Quraysh will be allowed to do that. And the fourth one was again a very contentious and difficult thing. The Muslims will return to Medina without performing or so they came all the way from Mecca, Medina, from Medina Dwarka, but they will not be allowed to make over and this was just cussedness you know, no matter what you give us you this time we have to go back. So they will be they will have to go back.
And the following year, next year, they are allowed to come, but they can stay only for three days. And during those three days, the chorus will vacate.
Makkah Muslims can have up their Amara and leave in three days. And there was not carry any weapons except their possible sword. So sheets sorts. Now, obviously this was a very unequal treaty. And especially in terms of honor, there were two majors with what we would we would call loss of face kind of
clauses. One, that if a non Muslim from Quraysh comes to Medina to accept Islam, he must be sent back. But if a Muslim leaves Islam and goes to Medina, he will not be sent or goes to Makkah, he will not be sent back. And the second one was that after coming all this way, even though every rule of hospitality every rule of
of hygiene obrah every rule of the Quran themselves in Makkah
should have a deed compel them, to allow them to make Amara to allow them to worship Allah subhanaw taala they said no, you cannot do that pure ego. Pure arrogance is you cannot do that you go back and you come back next year and then only for three days you cannot stay more than three days and you have to leave the place after three days. And those three days you will be allowed to make over and flourish will meaning they will vacate the city meaning now that all obligations of hospitality which otherwise would have been
incumbent upon them are no longer encumbered. So when you come we will not give you any hospitality just come make it.
So wait anyway.
Now this was
sort of agreed to all this. Now imagine this whole thing. Here are the Sahaba by two Revans happen, they have given the pledge to say we are ready to fight unto the until death. And then this treaty is being written.
These are warriors. These are people who are brave people that people honor
don't like what's happening, they do not like what is happening. And they this whole question in their mind to say swallow, this is the man we believed it. This is the man who is a prophet of Allah, and we believe this. And why is agreeing to this? Why are we being subjected to this? What is our crime? We believe in Allah, we want to worship Allah subhanaw taala what is our chi now?
Oh, so Allah, Allah Allah. I'm sure this question was in the minds of many people but said that Omar Abdullah who was always the outspoken man us or he was always the kind of
spokesperson for others. So say then Omar Abdullah who actually went to a source
and he said yeah, Rasul Allah.
Are you the NABI of Allah or not?
And as soon as I'm done a view of Allah
He said are we correct? Are we are and these people are on button these people are on false is this true honor, wrestlers are seldom said yes this is true. We are on hack we are the truth and they are on false
10 an hour that said then why are we agreeing to st
as soon as I said I've said I'm doing what my Rob has ordered me to do.
And I will not do anything other than that.
Nothing the Nova or the Lana was not satisfied with that. So he went to say that
and he asked the same question is it easy not the NABI of Allah say that obviously this said yes, of course he is.
He the abbey not on the truth and they are on fossil.
So now we'll go to the Latin said yes, we are on to the fourth. He said the why is he agreeing to this treaty?
Our Garcia said shut up. He said stop asking questions. He said he is doing what his rubbers ordered him to do.
Or the stood up off his horse. And he will lead you to Jannah He will lead you to the right place.
Don't argue about this.
and this was the the event of a workers decoder. So holla always always throughout his life. This man was a man of such amazing strength.
Such power of humanity test our code that there's nobody to equal
so that's why it's called
absolute as bad and Ambia bit tacky.
He is the best of human beings after the MBA without doubt
10 An hour there are no Goddard results any roadway he couldn't take it to the hearing it was so traumatic for him that
to be to be to agree to something like that he was not agreeing Mr. Soros or Salem was agreeing and then all of his obviously there was still he was agreeing on his own behalf and on behalf of the Muslim so
now the treaty itself was being written by
an ally of the law.
So say that I started writing
this is the treaty between Mohamed Rasulullah sallallahu Salah
who is agreeing with Sohail with our the representative of fresh swell in our objective.
He said I don't believe
in Rasul Allah, I don't believe that you are the Messenger of Allah. He said he said if I believe that there will be there will be no need for this treaty. We don't accept you as the Rasul he said we know you we know your father, you know your grandfather, so we know you as Mohammed bin Abdullah.
So right that says earlier that said, it is not my I have written and he said it is not my place to rub out. Muhammad Rasul Allah, this line, or these words, because this is my man.
This is my fifth
there are sold himself around our deck. And nobody talked with this guy. And he said to ollie, right, Muhammad Abdullah
and this was the
wedding. Imagine that what kind of a tremendous spiritual destice was.
Now, while this treaty was being written, before it had actually been signed, who turns up our agenda, who is
the son of soil with our who had been imprisoned by Swinburne? He came as soon as well, we never saw him. He said, This van given back to us.
You don't even notice?
I wouldn't. I did not realize what was going on. He only heard that. As soon as salam had come. And he was close to to Makkah in Bolivia. So he was headed towards Medina. He said well, I will go and meet the promise of Islam right here. So he came and joined he didn't realize that his father was there and this whole treaty stuff was going on. So he turned up use the price volumes of rice for his father's surprise for everybody.
So I said well,
give me back give it back man back to our which is sad also, I have I have accepted Islam. I'm a Muslim. I have come to seek Your protection. They are torturing me. They imprison me. If you give me give me back to them, they will
punish me more.
You know, upset about this?
Doesn't set to soil with our we have not signed the treaty yet. It is not completely written and signed yet.
It's trying to get some kind of a, you know, sort of
accommodation if possible.
Silva said no, he said we have agreed the word of a bad.
Writing is incidental. That is for the record, the word of the of a bad is treaty. And this, incidentally, is the principle in Islam. The word or Muslim is one it is his oath. Writing is for the record.
We have already agreed, and the agreement is that one of us comes to you, you return them.
So that's what I said, I said, I'm set to Allah, we'll find a way for you go back
over it, and he's going back, says an hour went close to him. He said to him, my sword is loose in the scabbard, pull it out kill your father
and the guards and run away.
Now imagine that was the level of feeling and emotion and so on? I would say no, I will not get my father I will not kill the guards, I will obey them
alongside the GED
so with our left,
as soon as I
said to this our shave your heads and sacrifice the animals and we are going back to India
for the first time.
The Sahaba did nothing.
They did not refuse.
They did not say we will not do it. But they did not do it. Their way was to anticipate his orders an instruction was to do even before he could complete something they will do it they will know he wants something he would they will do it.
They were eager to please Him. They will run and they will raise with one another will compete with one another to please Him. But it was the first time that they did nothing. The set
are a sort of service and I've also seen as hikma see his wisdom, because
a direct command of the Rasul if a person refuses to do this person has exited Islam has become
there was a lot of them didn't want to put his people in that situation. So having said this once, he did not repeat his commandment he saw that they had not obeyed. He just got up from his place and he entered history he went into state he entered
in the tent was our mother on masala maravilla his wife
whenever he traveled he usually took one of his wives with him so at this time it was almost Alibaba
now she was
the wife of Solomon who was one of the dearest and closest friends or Mr. Seller who and resources of them had married myself Aguila after I was alibi had been shaved after he had died.
Jewelry wise person so she saw him and she said yes or no or whatever.
Those are the things I'm said my Alma is destroying itself. She said, What happened?
How are they destroying themselves?
He's told her this situation. So this is what I give them an order the out domain. He said, I also like this is such a dramatic and such a terrible time for them. It's a huge test for them.
They will obey you, but you go and do it first. So don't tell them to do it. First. They will over your channel.
Think about this. Here is a woman giving advice to the Rasul of Allah to the Messenger of Allah.
What is the action? Did he say Excuse me? Who is the messenger hear me Are you? Who is Ye? Who gives emulation me Are you? You are telling me what to do? Did you say all this? No.
He did not say any of that. He did what she told him to do. He did what she told him to do. He took her advice. So he went out. He called said earlier the learner is a big my animals. And he started sacrificing and then he got somebody to share with that. And as soon as he did that everyone,
everyone emulated everyone shaved their heads. He shaved head to each other and they sacrificed their animals. And they started to say that tears mixed with blood because they were so upset. They were crying, but they will obey
our brothers sisters in my understanding with the Sierra
This was the final test.
This was the final test. This was where you get the grade point average and get the GPA
and the Sahaabah
the companion that was the fastest test
the past is desperate flying colors. Because Samara
What do you allow her to rustle they did that they hurt we here we away.
We just Allah and we're going to those
and I lost about a third then give them a certificate. I lost around a delta in Africa hunger, lack of automobile.
So the father was Ribbit. Allah said today we have granted you a manifest victory.
How is it a victory when they when they came for a purpose and the focus was not fulfilled? You might say well, this is defeat how does the victory to the victory of obedience over the desire of the knifes desire of the heart?
And JELA more about this, Olivia. In our next episode, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to guide us to that which is pleasing to Him and to save us from that which is not nice to him because Allah Allah weekly while he was having a good article so article
