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

I'm

00:00:01--> 00:00:11

so glad I'm here. hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Shara freedom via un mousseline Muhammad Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa Dai Li was salam just leaving,

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

we continue with the

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

lesson about the Battle of

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

baklava

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

also known as the Battle of conduct, conduct means stretch. So, it is known as known by that new strategy of war which was done for the first time among the Arabs in this part of the world, this was not something which they knew, and they dug the trench because of the advice of Satan or Salman al Farsi or the Allah Han who which resources and took is also the lesson in terms of leadership where you take the the advice of somebody who may not be the designated leader, but if somebody has some special information, special skills, special technique, then it is

00:01:02--> 00:01:19

important for the leader to be confident enough about his leadership to give that person visibility, and let them teach so that everybody benefits and this is what Novus also did. Now, we are at the point of the

00:01:22--> 00:01:31

the treason of Bonhoeffer Ada, which was one of the Jewish tribes which will live in Medina, and which were all the other tribes as well.

00:01:34--> 00:01:39

They were also under a treaty, they had signed a treaty

00:01:42--> 00:01:48

to support Rasulullah Salem, and the people of Medina

00:01:49--> 00:01:55

in case of any external aggression. So the treaty was that

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

they were not required to go out or Medina to fight. So if there was, if there were,

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

you know, from

00:02:04--> 00:02:13

sorry, as if there were groups being sent out to fight somewhere else. The Jews of Medina, we're not under under treaty to

00:02:14--> 00:02:19

send soldiers for those groups to fight with them or to go with them. But

00:02:20--> 00:02:39

they were under a treaty to protect Medina because they learned the value. This was a duty that all the inhabitants of Madina Munawwara would stand together against external aggression. And this was the treaty that the manual for ADA, were intending to break.

00:02:41--> 00:02:42

And as I mentioned in the last,

00:02:44--> 00:02:48

hi there, as well as SLM when you got news that these people are

00:02:49--> 00:03:04

planning to go over to the side of the enemy, and the other strategically important problem was that therefore, forts were actually part of the

00:03:06--> 00:03:26

the boundary of Madina Munawwara. So if they open their gates, then the Muslim would be completely destroyed with enemy will be able to get into Medina and then the whole strategy of the trench and so on would become null and void would become meaningless. So rasa Selim

00:03:28--> 00:03:33

tried to get intelligence, tried to find out about it, he discovered that

00:03:36--> 00:03:38

they're doing this. So he sent out

00:03:39--> 00:03:46

patrols to patrol around their forks, groups of 200 300 soldiers so that they

00:03:47--> 00:03:56

would become aware that we are our intentions are no longer hidden, and the Muslims are ready to defend themselves.

00:03:58--> 00:04:13

In this draw in this process, the Muslims intercepted 20 camo loads of figs and dates and supplies, going from the fortresses have been no further to the army of Elijah. This was clear evidence

00:04:14--> 00:04:30

that the 104 is our committing treason because they were sending sending supplies, food and so on to the enemy directly and they got caught in that process and this was the most difficult situation that the Muslims had ever faced.

00:04:31--> 00:04:32

Now

00:04:34--> 00:04:35

see how the

00:04:38--> 00:04:43

this whole crisis created two different reactions among the

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

Muslims, the believers, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this. And that's the reason why the Sierra and Quran Al Karim are so closely related. The Sierra is literally the practical of seed it is the field

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

This book of the Quran will carry in terms of how to interpret what Allah has said how to practice it.

00:05:07--> 00:05:41

From the ASVAB on the zoo, the circumstances of revelation of the different ayat we know what Allah subhanaw taala said what he ordered. You know how it affected so Allah subhanaw taala is Jha will come in fo que como I mean as far as I mean Khumba is Zaga till about saaru Ebola Rottie localu Bull Hannah Jira, what also known as Villa Hills Guna, Allah subhanaw taala said when they came upon you, from above you and from below you, and when the eyes grew wild meaning out of fear

00:05:42--> 00:06:01

and the hearts reached to the throats, you gotta catch in the heart out of autotelic out of terror and you are harboring doubts about Allah subhanaw taala to this was one kind of reaction that was one of that I mentioned that there were some people who were having this kind of a

00:06:03--> 00:06:04

reaction with seeing the

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

army of the Tsar the Confederates

00:06:09--> 00:06:29

and then the other reaction Allah say Bala Mara al Momina mean what am I moving on I'll Azova car who has ma either love or solo who was Sadako love or solo who was the home Illa EMA and what asleep.

00:06:31--> 00:07:13

And when the believers saw Eliza, the confidence, they said this is what Allah and His Messenger SallAllahu Sallam had promised us. And Allah and His Messenger SallAllahu Sallam have spoken the truth, and it only added to their faith and to their submissiveness to Allah. Allah is the One who sang wama Azada whom Illa e ma know what does Lima, nothing increased in them except Dima, and accept submission to Allah, Samantha? And who's saying that the only one who can know that because Iman and submissiveness is the state of the heart, the only one who can know that the only one who can talk about that the only one who can announce that is Allah.

00:07:14--> 00:07:36

Because he is a Les Moonves that is pseudo, he knows what is in the heart. And Allah is the One who say, this is what happened to the believers, that when they saw the enemy, they didn't get frightened, they didn't run away. They didn't get terrified. It only increased the event. And they said, I haven't really learned what Allah said is true, what his message said is true.

00:07:38--> 00:07:41

The mafia came. On the other hand,

00:07:42--> 00:07:45

they made all kinds of comments about this threat from the army.

00:07:46--> 00:08:11

Mati Ben Jose commented, and he said that Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, obviously, he didn't say that I'm saying Salah Mohammed used to say that we would eat the treasures of Kisara and Heiser, and here we are, and we don't even feel safe going to the toilet. Now, this is the kind of stuff that you know, these people

00:08:12--> 00:08:15

said, and a lot of

00:08:16--> 00:08:40

it's such as amazing sense of how all of this happened and the immediacy of the Presence of Allah subhanaw taala in their lives, that Allah subhanaw taala was watching and Allah subhanaw taala was really imagine as you are doing something the Quran is coming down the Quran is being revealed specifically about those things. Imagine this is the

00:08:42--> 00:09:06

the kind of when we talk about the Sahaba and we say, you know, they're, they were poorly armed and poorly resourced. That is true, but we must also remember what kind of moral courage and what kind of amazing support they would have had, knowing that Allah Svarta is watching and he's revealing Quran

00:09:07--> 00:09:18

so you wouldn't even know that Allah is watching or is not revealing Quran for us anymore. This game for yourself was a very special position for the for this habit. And the last part that I said

00:09:20--> 00:09:43

we'd call up our ephah to minimum yeah layer three by the IMO comm zero why is that at the very minimum one NaVi fo Laura in an hour or two? Here we are in you read we're gonna love your one okay, let it lay him in forethought he has them as we all fit into law at

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

called the

00:10:52--> 00:10:53

last round tell us

00:10:55--> 00:10:56

another one early we

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

many out of salt Eliza,

00:11:01--> 00:11:19

in which this battle had been mentioned and others that I said the meaning of witches and when a party of them said oh people love your three people of Medina, there is no stand possible for you against the enemy attack. So go back and abandoned of them

00:11:21--> 00:11:22

went to ask

00:11:25--> 00:11:42

for permission of Rasulullah Selim saying truly our homes, they lie open to the enemy. But Allah said, but they were not open to the enemy. But these people wished to flee. And if the enemy had entered from all sides of the city, and they had been exalted

00:11:44--> 00:11:46

to Al fitrah, meaning if they had been

00:11:47--> 00:12:05

exalted or forced to leave Islam, they will surely have committed it, they will surely have done it, and would have hesitated there upon but little. And indeed, they had already made a covenant with Allah not to turn their backs. And a covenant in a covenant with Allah must be answered for

00:12:07--> 00:12:24

say, oh Mohamed Salah Salem to these hypocrites, who asked your permission to run away, flight will not avail you flight will not benefit you. If you flee from deaths or killing and then you will enjoy no more than a little while. Because one day you will die anyway.

00:12:25--> 00:12:46

Say, Who is he who can protect you from Allah, if He wants to harm you, or intends mercy on you. Meaning if he wants to benefit you can stop that. If he wants to harm you, who can help you and they will not find besides Allah other than Allah for themselves, anybody, any protector, any supporter or any helper.

00:12:49--> 00:12:50

Then Allah Subhana Allah says,

00:12:52--> 00:13:05

Allah already knows our knows those among you, who keep back the men from fighting in Allah squads, and who say to their brother, come here towards us, while they themselves do not come to the battle except a little

00:13:06--> 00:13:28

less talking about the hypocrites, being miserly towards you, as regards help and aid in Allah's Cause. Then when fear comes, you will see them looking to you with eyes revolving like those of one over whom, over death. But when the fear departs, they will smite you, they will hit you they will,

00:13:30--> 00:13:51

they will try to harm you with sharp tongues, miserly towards spending anything in any good and only covetous of booty and wealth, such have not believed meaning these are not believers, even though they will look like Therefore Allah makes their deeds fruitless and that is ever easy for Allah.

00:13:53--> 00:14:11

Then Allah said the idea that they think that Allah has the confidence have not yet withdrawn and if Allah has the confidence to come again, they would wish they were in the desert wandering among the Bedouin, seeking news about you from afar place. And if they happen to belong you they will not fight back

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

and has been married Malita Delana said

00:14:16--> 00:14:22

that the Muslims used to eat some barley with some old animal fat that smelled bad.

00:14:23--> 00:14:44

They had all kinds of bad news from all sides. Occasionally, some enemies will try to break through the trench and short skirmishes occurred. One challenge to single combat occurred when our been ruled one of the heroes of the Quraysh he challenged

00:14:46--> 00:14:47

the Muslims and

00:14:49--> 00:14:51

aluminum, Atlanta I went over to fight him.

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

He asked him who he was, and if any of them told him who he was. And so our said

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

I never knew you are young. I'm sure there are among your uncle's others who are more experienced and qualified to fight me. And I don't want to spill your way I feel sorry to spill your blood so go call somebody else said earlier they'll answer but I don't feel sorry to spill your blood.

00:15:16--> 00:16:06

So I'm I've got so angry, he drew us all out as if it were a brand of fire and he hit early, or the alarm was so hard that his shield hit his head so sincerely holding the sheet dissociative and then Alice shield hit his head, but in the process, Amber sword got stuck inside and Ali's shield. And then I leave countered with a blow to our neck. And he was killed. The Saba made the beard when they saw this. And that's when I sort of knew that said an ally had been fighting Saudi Navy because what they learn who was a good Archer, and he had in his, in his sights and an enemy soldier who was hiding, who was holding two shields, and he was teasing the Muslim by you know, raising and lowering

00:16:06--> 00:16:13

the shields. So sadly, because of the law who waited, and when the shield was down, he shot him in the head.

00:16:14--> 00:16:35

The man was hitting the hit in the middle of the fight. And he fell over backwards and his legs flew in the air. And it looks so funny that was also sort of laughed, sad in Wired, or that he was a tall and big man. And he was wearing armor. But his arms were not covered by the AMA because he was was too big for them.

00:16:37--> 00:16:42

Say that I just said I was I was worried for him as his arms were not covered.

00:16:43--> 00:16:44

And sure enough,

00:16:46--> 00:17:04

he was shot by an arrow in his arm, which cut his main vein. And so he was seriously injured, they try to bandage it and so on. But sadly moto Delano never recovered from that wound and sought after the Battle of

00:17:06--> 00:17:07

of his app say that

00:17:08--> 00:17:50

he passed away. We'll come to that in a minute. But don't try to break the coalition. So he tried to negotiate a deal with a hotter fan word come to join the coalition. And as soon as I said, I'm told the two leaders of the Qatar fan that he will give them 1/3 of the harvest of Medina if they withdrew. They agreed but did not finalize the agreement by bringing Witnesses also as an asylum that made sure I was saddened and mad and sad Mirova the two leaders of al Assad of the Law No, he did not make a shura with everyone, only with the leaders. And this is the wisdom of leadership. You don't have to ask everyone ask the people who have the influence. And if they agree, then they will

00:17:50--> 00:17:51

influence the others.

00:17:53--> 00:17:59

Never, in any negotiation and so on never undermine

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

the leaders of the opposite party because then you are stuck without a leadership and it's impossible to negotiate with and to convince a huge group of people, a huge number of people much better to negotiate with the leaders.

00:18:16--> 00:18:24

So this is what we did. He negotiated the matura with the leaders. Now they said jasola

00:18:26--> 00:19:09

Is this something that you want to do for our sake? Or is it an order of Allah? Savin Zenyatta so love used to worship idols like those people. In those days they will not dream of eating a single one of our dates except as our guests or after buying them. Now that Allah has honored us with his deen and we worship none other than Him geladeira who must we give them this house for our safety by Allah? All we will give them is the sword until Allah decide between us and them as long as you wish. Sadly in Wildwood Delano took the document from the sorrows of Solomon erased the writing on it and say let us fight and that is how the matter of waterphone ended.

00:19:11--> 00:19:14

Now Allah subhanaw taala will help

00:19:16--> 00:19:36

Muslims who qualify for his help a man came to a surah Salah from a lot of fun. And he said yes or Allah, Allah Salam. I have accepted Islam, but my people don't know this. So please give me whatever orders you wish. And I will help you. It was a strange thing that this ban became Muslim at a time when Muslims were losing.

00:19:37--> 00:19:59

Now his name was mine. And he had good relations with Koresh and Baroque and Baroque Korea, and he was from a lot of fun. So he obviously had good relations with them also. It's very interesting because even today, it will see if you see the maximum number of people coming into Islam are in Western countries and they are

00:20:00--> 00:20:13

Women now if you look at it, Islam gets the quite an unjustly and unfairly gets the worst rap with regard to women's rights because people don't know what women's rights are in Islam. So they blame and

00:20:14--> 00:20:32

also in the Western countries, you see a lot of Islamophobia yet people are coming to Islam. So this is like like those days Allah subhanaw taala open the hearts of who we want and in general we ask Allah to open our hearts and enter his know and His love and His mercy in our hearts.

00:20:34--> 00:20:34

So that's what was

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

set to nine immune muscles, okay.

00:20:41--> 00:20:54

You said go and if you can weaken them, weaken them, it says what is deception? What is deception, there are only in Islam telling a lie is haram, there is no such thing as

00:20:55--> 00:20:58

you know, just telling an AI to pass by and so on.

00:21:00--> 00:21:07

So, anyone who says that telling a lie is okay accept it, no, who says they do not even lie, even as a joke.

00:21:08--> 00:21:15

Right Do not even lie even as a joke, except in three places where lies are permitted. One is

00:21:16--> 00:21:20

in a state of war. So when you need to do something, to deceive the enemy

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

to protect your brother. So if you're if you find a Muslim is an innocent person dies, hiding from running from,

00:21:33--> 00:21:35

from from from oppressors and

00:21:36--> 00:22:03

definitely for the Muslim but even for any any innocent person even you know, this is how, in the during 1930s There were many Muslims who saved the Jews from the from Hitler's Holocaust, including the the amount of the of the biggest budget in France in Paris. So the entire situation, you know, it is permitted to tell a lie. It's also permitted to tell lie to bring people together. So

00:22:04--> 00:22:14

if there are two people who are fighting the new state, one in the look of another person really has a good opinion about you and that kind of thing. And then finally, of course, it's permissible to

00:22:15--> 00:22:17

tell a lie in a marital

00:22:19--> 00:22:26

mannitol issue, marital problem, they're also a disability. So otherwise not so obvious as I'm saying, Why did deception

00:22:29--> 00:22:31

so enlightening muscle

00:22:32--> 00:22:37

Oh, there was a known and trusted man and he went to the bonobo Minocqua and he said to them,

00:22:38--> 00:23:08

you know me, and I will give you only good advice. He said, You have decided to fight masala, but you are living in Medina, and your women and children are vulnerable. The Horatian gotta find I've come to fight, but there are women and children are back home in their lands. Now, if they are able to defeat masala Salam, then that's fine. But if they are not able to defeat him, they will leave. And if daily, you know what will happen to you, moms or seller will attack you. And as you know, you can face off you cannot face off

00:23:09--> 00:23:10

against

00:23:12--> 00:23:14

the homeless alone, right.

00:23:15--> 00:23:25

So this is the advice that he gave them. He said, Don't do that. Don't don't renege on your on your deal. Don't commit treason.

00:23:26--> 00:23:49

So they said what you're saying is true. So what do you suggest? He said, You want to make sure they're courageous and catify will stay and fight to the end and not leave midway? If you feel that they are losing and in the process betray you. So they said that's true. So what should we do? He said, tell them to give you some of their men as hostages to ensure that they will stay with you to the end.

00:23:50--> 00:24:16

Now, this was the practice of the time where you could borrow money and leave a child of security and so on. So it was nothing new. They agreed there no no annoying, been muscled on the alarm. He went to the college and he said you know me and that I will only tell you the truth and will only give you advice that is sincere. I have something to tell you. And I want you to keep it secret. They said yes, no, I envied no and we trust you will tell us. He said the

00:24:17--> 00:24:18

Mundo Harada

00:24:20--> 00:24:48

have regretted the fact that they have abrogated the agreement with Bahamas or Salem that they wanted to commit treason and they are now negotiating with him as a sign of their sincerity and repentance. They have offered to hand over some of your men to him to be executed. So as the Jews come to you if they've been okay they come to you asking for hostages don't give them hostages. Then he went to the other farm and told him the same thing. The siege was taking a longtime

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

coalition was surprised to find the trench and and that they were now involved in laying siege they had not come prepared for that. They had come for a quick way

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

Three and they did not have supplies to stay on for a seat. If you might be in Abuja, hell was sent to speak to an operator to coordinate a massive attack simultaneously from the front and the rear. He said.

00:25:14--> 00:25:15

So he said to them,

00:25:16--> 00:25:20

our supplies are running out. Now camels and horses are dying.

00:25:21--> 00:25:50

So we have decided to make a massive attack on Muhammad wa salam today. And so get ready to do your parts. The verrucosa said, no, no, no, no, hold on second, you know that we don't fight on the Sabbath. And thus we add plus we are very we are worried that you will not stay to the end. So we want you to give us some of your men as secured as as hostages. You cannot went back to the Koresh and he told them that what they had said I was

00:25:51--> 00:25:56

said this is exactly what nine told us tell them we will not give them even one man

00:25:58--> 00:26:14

the middle what are the hardest and they said this is what nine one was about. They are trying to run and leave us to face the anger of Mohamed Salah salah. And the same thing happened with a lot of art. And the coalition was broken or because of one man knowing being muscled.

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

Now, some lessons. First one the coloration the one operator we're fighting from an Akita point of view. But the other one, we're in it for the money.

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

So a lot of

00:26:30--> 00:26:31

quality. And

00:26:33--> 00:26:47

there will also be now it's not only to Africa, as well as it was, you know, domination in their own land. Now, the college wanted the upper hand, the monopoly they wanted the upper hand, but the latter one were mercenaries.

00:26:48--> 00:26:55

So what should you do not lie, you'll hit by use wisdom to neutralize the opposition use whatever

00:26:56--> 00:27:03

means are available to you. And this was a Selim did that he sent patrols. So there's a psychological,

00:27:04--> 00:27:09

you know, fear in them in the enemy to say, Oh, these people are awake, they're not sleeping.

00:27:10--> 00:27:16

We can't deceive them, you can't surprise them. Also, what might be muscle good, are the

00:27:18--> 00:27:20

terms of spreading, you know, the

00:27:21--> 00:27:30

information between them, where it looks like they are rendering on each other's contracts and so on. Yeah, I think that will happen and what?

00:27:32--> 00:27:43

That's what I said I said I also was making a lot of dua, and Allah subhanaw taala, accepted the DUA and help the Muslims with forces that they

00:27:45--> 00:27:46

could not see.

00:27:47--> 00:28:14

And I said, Yeah, you're letting the animals go. Now that's a lie. Aliko is Jah To whom do you know don't for ourselves, lay him Rehan Why do you know the lambda roja Oregon Allah who will be my dharma, you will never see it, let's say Don't you will believe. Remember Allah subhanaw taala is favor on you. When there came against you hosts, which is armies and we send we send against them a wind and forces that you could not see, which was the

00:28:16--> 00:28:32

the whatever force Allah Malaika whatever force Allah subhanaw taala sent, and let's say you could not see them but Allah has sent them. And Allah subhanaw taala is an ever all seer of what you do, which means advise aware of what you

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

do.

00:28:35--> 00:28:37

And we ask Allah subhanaw taala for His mercy.

00:28:39--> 00:28:42

But remember, this is this happens doesn't happen.

00:28:44--> 00:29:07

Just like that. It happens when we get prepared for it and the preparation for it is to live a life which is obedient to Allah, to stand for Allah to fight for Allah to support the cause of Allah Subhana Allah subhanaw taala said yeah, you will within Amanu in terms of lions, will you submit Lazaro you believe?

00:29:08--> 00:29:12

Help Allah and Allah will help you and you will make your feet firm.

00:29:13--> 00:29:36

Meaning he will establish you will make your feet fall. If you are in a conflict, Allah will give a victory to help Alana obviously Allah doesn't need help helping Allah meaning help the cause of Allah subhanaw taala and Allah subhanaw taala will help you as a result of that. And Allah will give you a victory. Victory is not something that just comes out of the air victories and is also not something which comes because of

00:29:39--> 00:29:39

because of

00:29:41--> 00:29:54

material and well then weapons and so on and so forth or even because of great strategies. Victory is something that comes first and foremost. First and Last first and foremost because of a loss of

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

victory is always from Allah

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

And that's why Allah subhanaw taala never praised the Muslim for being tourists. Allah did not say Oh, fantastic job we didn't bother No, Allah subhanaw taala the victims of Allah's Ramadan Allah subhanaw taala. On the other hand, he criticized the Muslims when they did something wrong like in the Battle of our hearts, for example, which you mentioned earlier. So I won't repeat that here. But therefore to understand that when you do something

00:30:25--> 00:30:26

correctly and unless please do

00:30:28--> 00:30:40

so we ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us and to enable us to do that which is pleasing to Him, and to save us from that which does not believe was Allah Allah, Allah Allah will create or Allah He was named to get on my life.
