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

So once upon a time, there was an imam who heard that people were saying, Why is he repeating the same lecture over and over again.

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

So the next time he got on the member,

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

he said, Who remembers what I said last time.

00:00:28--> 00:00:34

And nobody raised their hands. So he said, I don't speak to a bunch of ignorant people start the prayer.

00:00:36--> 00:00:47

And then the next week came along, and he said, who knows what I'm going to talk about now. And everybody raised their hands. So he said, I'm not going to tell you something you already know, start the prayer.

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

And then the third week came.

00:00:51--> 00:01:07

And he said to them, they had a plan this time, they strategized, who knows what I'm going to talk about this week. So half of them raised their hands and the other half kept their hands down. He said, the half that nose tells the half that doesn't know start the prayer. I'm not talking to you guys.

00:01:08--> 00:01:14

And the funniest part of the whole thing is the reason I mentioning this is that I have to repeat now yesterday's lecture.

00:01:15--> 00:01:16

I'm not joking.

00:01:18--> 00:01:37

And the reason being is that the computer crashed, and the episode was not recorded. And in sha Allah you benefit from the review, but in sha Allah, this is really not about me making sure the series is whole for promotion, I'd be in the wrong business if I wanted to get famous off of being an imam.

00:01:39--> 00:02:00

But actually, because inshallah this will actually warm your heart. I'm going to take a minute and share it with you because it did mine. About three weeks before Ramadan, I received a message from a prison institution in Houston, Texas, that says to me, are we authorized to use the quality content on your YouTube channels? I ECPA.

00:02:02--> 00:02:23

Because they're not allowed to have internet so you'd have to get downloaded onto discs and brought into the prison system because many people are learning their Islam through what you're producing. So may Allah reward you all for your support for this place and US insisting on trying to offer quality Islamic messaging Allahumma Amin, and I pray I'm not the last to benefit from my words.

00:02:24--> 00:03:10

Okay, so we said yesterday, that after Allah azza wa jal gave victory to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the second year at the Battle of bedded, despite them being unarmed and undermanned, three to one odds. And then in the third year, the Battle of Arroyo takes place, four to one odds, and Allah still empowers the Muslims, aside from the casualties of the, you know, the early celebration, the aftermath, that took place, Allah gave them victory again, so they officially became now on the map, a force to be reckoned with. And so certain phenomenon started emerging in Medina, this is a state has made a name for itself has asserted its presence in the region, the

00:03:10--> 00:03:50

hypocrite class begins to emerge and Allah exposes them through sort of the luminaria cone, and later on through sort of the tilbyr so that they cannot harm the Muslim community and some of them are eventually guided and they make their repentance. But also, aside from the Arab tribes that were pagan that accepted Islam and took in the Muslims from Mecca. There were three Jewish tribes in Medina remember, by no car, no bleed and Cora Eva Klein who Clark clock, no lead on carova already seeing the power imbalance, the profit become is becoming too powerful in their eyes, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they had a pact to protect the city together. But then now they're fearing that

00:03:50--> 00:04:33

they'll have no more leverage, and they start provoking the Muslims in hopes that they'll just leave. And so clean no car were the first to breach the pact and were expelled by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because they came to the defense of one of their men who pulled a prank on a Muslim woman and stripped her naked in public in front of everybody. And they defended him against the man who leapt to her defense, the Muslim man, they attacked him and they sort of collided with him. And they killed him. And so that was the breach. As for bento, nuclear, the second tribe they openly they were openly exposed and plotting to assassinate the Prophet sallallahu

00:04:33--> 00:04:59

alayhi wa sallam Surah Al hashanah comes down and Allah punishes them at the hands of his prophet and the believers justice. You know, they say that Moses came with Jellal the might of God. And Jesus came with Jemelle the beauty of God and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came with canal. He came with a complete, most perfect message of God that brought together His mercy and His justice. So justice was dealt to by Nadia and

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

They were expelled as well from Medina and part of the punishment as you read in the Surah, as they had to dismantle their homes themselves in front of their own eyes with their own hands before they had to leave. Of course, there's one tribe left, the power shift is happening more and more Benu carova know they need external support. So they rile up the Mexicans, we will help you come together, let's internally and externally, pinch on Muhammad and crush him finish the Muslims off once and for all. So the Mexicans rally up an army that was read about this historically never seen before in size 10,000 Strong from Croatia autofab And all of these tribes, and the Muslims knew they

00:05:42--> 00:06:30

could never withstand that force. And so they went to the only part of Medina that was accessible. I know I said lava fields yesterday and you looked at me like what lava fields, there's stony terrain on the sides of Medina, from old volcano volcanic eruptions. That's what we mean by lava fields. And there was Palm forests. And so there was one vulnerable area about five, six kilometers long. And I said 10, but it was really they say about five meters wide, three meters deep. Imagine manually digging all of this in the blistering cold in the starvation. And ultimately, their siege was held for about a month until Allah caused infighting in the ranks of those outside, distrust sandstorms,

00:06:30--> 00:06:51

they couldn't hold off anymore. And they wrote wrote back they said, We are aborting the mission. And Allah gave them victory there and what was known as the Battle of Zeb Zeb means the allied forces his his his back said it's also known as 100 The Battle of the Trench because of the trench that was dug and what the Muslims had to go through.

00:06:55--> 00:07:13

In surah, Allah has ever it's so interesting that we're about to start the first is hotel as of now so if you have with your airplane mode on your phone, and you want to peek along at the translation do that the incident is in the second and third and fourth page of Alexa enjoy it. It tells you everything that took place of what took place.

00:07:15--> 00:07:29

Allah azza wa jal says they came to you from every direction, like the Muslims were they're starving, tying stones to their stomachs. Because the coolness of the stone is going to offset the heat of the hunger. They were trying whatever they could.

00:07:30--> 00:08:15

And in the middle of that, knowing that if they get up they die. They find out the Jews have been Acorah are the ones who backstabbed them. And so if I get up, I die and if I stay put who's back there? My wife and children, my family dies. And so Allah said in that Surah At that moment when Alec if you truly meaning me known, the believers faced such a severe trial was resilience Zoll and Shalida. And they were shaken to the core. And then everybody's True Colors came out hola says the Mona Lisa Cohen say Mohammed is promising us victory. And I'll get to that hadith again in a second. And we can't even get up to relieve ourselves right now in the bathroom. And elsewhere. Allah says

00:08:15--> 00:08:57

the next page over but when the believers saw the world united against them, they said had them our other Allahu rasuluh This is what Allah and His Messenger promise they told us the world will team up against us was Sadhak Allahu wa rasuluh. Allah and His Messenger were truthful when as their home Illa Iman and what a slimmer and increase them in nothing but faith and submission. Despite the tremble despite the fear, despite what was at stake, it increased them in their faith, every container when squeezed, lets out what's truly inside. Right. As for how this contributes to our surety, I mentioned to you the hadith of Jabba as one example, he ran to his wife and said, I am

00:08:57--> 00:09:10

starving, and I cannot bear it. But there's one thing I can't bear more than this, watching the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam fall apart from hunger. So they slaughtered their only baby goat. And she said bring him only.

00:09:11--> 00:09:50

And so the Prophet sallahu alayhi wa sallam is whispered in his ear I got something for you just can we sneak off to my house? And he tells the Muslims come Jebin has prepared food for you. The hadith actually records that soon as they got to the house jabber got yelled at bed by his wife. What in the world are you doing? I told you don't tell anyone. He said the Prophet said said stay out of it and let me serve the food. And that little goat that would feed 10 people fed 10 at a time for 1000 people every time he served Allah who would replenish from the pot subhanho wa taala. And the other proof I mentioned to you was the hadith of Al Bara or the Allahu Allah that when they were digging

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

through and they reach this immovable Boulder, the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam was called over and he kept raising his axe and saying Bismillah and each time a chunk of it would

00:10:00--> 00:10:15

wall would break off and turn to rubble. And each time as it would fall, he would say Allahu Akbar, I've been given the keys to a sham, greater Syria where the Roman Empire is. Then he said, I could see its red Palaces from here. Then he's the second time he said, I,

00:10:16--> 00:10:54

Allahu Akbar, I've been given Persia, the assassinate Persian Empire, I see the White House of an muda in a meeting the Emperor's palace, the White House from Avila muda in from here. And then he struck that third time and he said, Allahu Akbar, I've been given Yemen as well. I can see the huge gates of sunlight from here. You know, I'll add to you quickly, one that I didn't mention to you yesterday, and there's so many when they finally left the invading army, and the Muslims go back, worn out from the siege. As soon as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam took off his armor. I mentioned this in a heartbeat a few months back, he gets up and walks back out of his house. His

00:10:54--> 00:11:35

wife says, What are you doing? He said, Gibreel said you are taking off your armor. But the angels haven't taken off their armor. Yes, the Arab pagans have left. But bento Quran Allah who betrayed you need to face justice as well? Is this not a proof of Prophethood if it was up to him, he'd shower and go to sleep, right? He'd recovered. But it was clear that he was an agent of God. He was just much addressed by this message as any other Muslim salAllahu alayhi wasallam. And as for the final point of how do we take a dose of purity from the incident of Allah hisab back to the idea. This is what Allah and His Messenger promise, do we see the events of life unfolding through the

00:11:35--> 00:12:16

prism of prophetic knowledge? You know, Alfred, AR Rahim Allah, He says, that genre of a hadith he calls it an endless stream, and a bottomless ocean. You know how many Hadith there are that equips the Muslim to see what's going to happen in the future. And so the more you commit yourself to sacred knowledge, the more you secure your heart from going astray. And I gave you the example of the gel, and I gave you the example of the sexual perversions of our times, right? You see this confusion? So yes, he said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam knowledge will be lifted, ignorance will prevail. You see all of this in decency and morality, he said, fornication would become more

00:12:16--> 00:12:55

widespread than ever, that the person with the most dignity and that side will say at least step aside, that's all they'll say. Can you just like find a room, that's it? No one else will care. And as for the gel, and I'll close here and now in sha Allah, He said, Sal, Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam that the greatest fitna, in human history will be that of the Antichrist, the False Messiah, and of what he will do is split a man, a firm, strong believer in half and walk between those two halves, and he will laugh, and people will say, you really are God. And then when he puts the man together, he says, Now will you believe in me, and all the men will say is mess dead to be que la

00:12:55--> 00:13:35

sera, I've only increased in certainty that you're a phony, that you are at the gel. What was the armor that he had, or the arsenal, it was the words of the Prophet SAW Selim, he said, the gel will split a guy into he just didn't know he was that guy. And so that needs to be all of us a commitment to prophetic knowledge to protect those hearts of ours. And I said and I gotta repeat this part. You will not be able to benefit from the Prophets knowledge in passing in while distracted, it will produce in you when you take it from the masjid the lighthouse of God, like it will produce in you it will never produce the same thing as getting it in some digital form. So may Allah azza wa jal

00:13:35--> 00:13:46

anchor us in this Masjid beyond the month of Ramadan, and for all year round is like a little late on and I hope the review is beneficial. Well, Sal, Allahu salah, Vada Kennedy and Muhammad Ali. He was so happy he was selling
