So how does the consistent and matchless bravery of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam further endorse his claim to prophethood?

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

Well think about it. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being as brave as he was utterly fearless throughout his life meant that not only was he truthful, but he was certain of his truthfulness. And with examples, things become clearer. When Allah the Most High revealed to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he recited to the people, all messenger of God, convey to the world this message, and Allah meaning in the process of doing so will protect you from the people. When that verse came down the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam at a time when the Muslims were fearing being attacked at any night. Upon coming to Medina being raided by the superpowers of

00:00:59--> 00:01:45

their time, such as Byzantium or otherwise, he refused that anyone stand as a night guard by his door any longer, he said for everyone to go home. Not only that, the Companions narrate that one night, they heard a huge clamor, there was like a big explosion of sorts, and so they quickly assembled and got together and by the time they got to the place where the sound was emanating from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was already there by himself on his way back, having left onto a horse belong to Avatar, and it was returning with his sword hanging from around his neck telling everyone, don't worry, don't worry, it's fine, meaning it's a false alarm. Even the bravest

00:01:45--> 00:02:32

men of all time the people of Valor, the warriors of the world, would even appreciate a person going out in the dark to the unknown single handedly, by themselves in this way. In fact, in the Battle of bed one year later, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was said about his own cousin olive. Now Vitaly upset about him, that we used to seek shelter around the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam. We would hover around him in battle, when it got most intense, because he was the toughest of us all, when it came to the battlefield. And another incident at the end of his life, salAllahu alayhi wasallam when the ambush took place at the Battle of her name, and everyone scrambled in every

00:02:32--> 00:03:16

direction, they actually asked after that incident, Al Bharat, may Allah be pleased with him. Were you of those who fled on the day of her name? He said, I can tell you one thing for sure. The Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam did not flee. When the volley of arrows came down and people dispersed and it was chaotic. It was mayhem. He was the one that created for us a rallying point because everyone is going in every direction. He raised the flag high and he stood tall and he said, and then the EULA Kathy, I am the Prophet of God, this is no lie and have not done matale I am the grandson of Abdulmutallab, meaning it's actually me. It's actually Muhammad calling attention to

00:03:16--> 00:04:02

himself in this most difficult our, you know, what could also be argued to be from the valor of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or his fearlessness? Was his magnanimity with his enemies in terms of how generous he was with them financially. He did not fear, even poverty. Many of the enemies of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they hated him due to tribal prejudices or otherwise, not because of his character, not because of his message. They recognize the purity of him and what he brought, but because of the bigotries, they were so defensive, and some of them so many of them would say, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would spend and give us gifts until

00:04:02--> 00:04:48

we had no choice but to feel captivated with his love. Some of them as NSR de Alon said, A man came up to the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam, and even snatched him by his cloak, leaving a mark in his neck and telling him this money that you collect is not your money. This is God's money. Where is our share of it? And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kept his companions from retaliating and said, Give the man some of the money with a smile. alayhi salatu salam, in fact, to go one step further. Zaidan Asana or Asana, he provoked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam deliberately and chastise him. He said, You and your clan and your family members are all known for

00:04:48--> 00:04:59

not repaying debts, though he was asking for the debt repayment days before it was actually due. And so Omar in Nakata wanted to retaliate and punish Zaid and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:05:00--> 00:05:47

Not only stopped Omar, he said to her Omar go give him his money and give him some more money on top of it as a bonus, because you frightened him or Omar, at which point Zaid said, I had tested and examined and confirmed all of the signs that I knew as a Jewish scholar of Prophethood in you, except this one that nothing you are ever provoked with, except that your forbearance matches it and is able to overcome it. And now I have just seen it and now it's time for me to be a Muslim. And in some narrations, he said, and my first deed as a Muslim is going to be to give up these four chains that I've collected in my life, in the path of Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
