So we left off in our Quranic Syrah with the liberation of Mecca festival Mecca, about which Allah azza wa jal said in sort of a Nasir
Elijah and also Allah he will forget when the victory of Allah comes and the liberation meaning of Maccha or eight and NASA Yeah, the Holo NFE de la Hiya, forger and you see the people flocking to Islam entering into Islam in waves, the conquest of Mecca and its liberation, not just that it happened, but how it happened caused shockwaves and ripple waves all throughout the Arabian Peninsula. The whole world now in that area is talking about the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Did you hear what happened? The orphan boy from Bengal Hashem. He united tribes that were warring at each other's necks for 1000s of years. He actually pulled it off. Did you hear the the
illiterate boy the unlettered boy sal Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam has produced a book. We have no idea how he put this book together. We have no idea where he gets these sores from. They're out of this world. Have you heard them? And these conversations are happening. Do you know what happened on the conquest of Mecca, he actually walked into the city in the very place where he saw his companions martyred in front of him in the very place where he saw the people that paid off for his uncle Hamza to be assassinated in gourd. He looked them all in the eye. And he said, I have forgiven you all.
Things they couldn't process. How could this be. And so more and more people are flocking to Islam in waves. But of course, the leadership doesn't like this. And so
there was resistance, there was never a dull moment in our prophets life. sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It's not like the conquest of Mecca. And then a nice, you know, slow down of events until he meets his Lord Subhanallah with Isla not like this, because the dunya is not like that. And so, the two powerful dry tribes of a thought if which are even Hellas in they receive messages from the Prophet Muhammad, I'm inviting you to Islam, for your sake, for the sake of your people, for your afterlife, save yourselves respond to God's message. Their response was Arabia, we're going to war with Mohammed who is with us, they started mobilizing the armies. And so he had to march out
immediately from the conquest of Mecca out to where to the city have a thought if to deter this group from rebelling against the waves of Islam that people genuinely want to accept now. And interestingly, that was the only battle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam his life where he had the numbers advantage, and it's the battle he didn't win sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Muslims were about 12,000 strong. And Allah says in the Quran, this was known as the Battle of her name. Well, yo Mahoney and Eve Archer vet comb Catarratto comb for LM token Yankem Shia
and recall the day of her name, when you were impressed with your numbers. You see, the hardest test people face in life is the test of success, then you get complacent and you get diluted. So for a moment that happened to them, probably not the senior. So habit, but the newcomers in the faith. They're looking around like 12,000 No one's ever heard of 12,000 before. And so they were impressed by their numbers. And so they were caught off guard in an ambush. And where it's not for Allah azza wa jal is, you know, protection and mercy for that blessed group, they would have been all massacred. But the Muslims came out of there with grave injuries and many losses, but the Prophet
salAllahu alayhi wasallam and the Muslim collective did survive.
Then he sent messages to the other provinces, and even to the Arabs now that are on the brink of Arabia, the border between Arabia and the superpowers of the world Roman Persia. And so fearing they would upset the big guy upset the the Byzantines, the Romans, what did they do with the Prophets message? They took the message and the messenger and they executed the prophets messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you know, this is a declaration of war. And so he quickly had to send out an army and this was known as the Battle of 3000 Muslims marched out there. And instead of facing that rebellious Arab tribe that did that, they call for reinforcements. And they found the Romans had
supplied them with 100 or another narration, the total was 200,000 and the Muslims
lost some of the greatest Sahaba that day.
And Allah Azza Allah azza wa jal permitted finally for Khalid bin Walid, the great hero and commander to rise and regroup them and strategize for them a safe exit, so they're not all annihilated and they went back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, who was in Medina.
So that was the conquest of Makkah, the Battle of her name that it went on to the Battle of Mota.
There are events within these accounts that I will share with you quickly as further reinforcement of the truth of Islam of them. In the ambush that took place in the first battle the Battle of grenade when they caught them from on top of the hills and they
ambush them. Naturally, everyone ran in separate directions, and the one man with the courage to draw attention to himself. In the middle of this all was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he jumped on top of a camel, and he grabbed He grabbed the flag and put it high that had fallen and kept yelling out and then be EULA Khatib and Abner Abdulmutallab. I am the Prophet. This is no lie. I am the son of Abdulmutallab, meaning the grandson of Abdullah Matata, meaning it's actually mean Mohammed, he's not bragging of ancestry, he's clearly identifying himself. I haven't died. We are not finished to regroup around here. And so that great valor of his once again shining is of the
proofs of his genuine at sallallahu alayhi wa sallam another, if I were to rush quickly, in the Battle of matzah. This was a profound event. The Prophet SAW Selim is in Medina, the Muslim army is over there. In Jordan. That's where it took place in the government of Iraq in Jordan 600 miles away. The Prophet SAW Selim is in Medina, and he is standing like this in front of the sahaba. And he is telling them the flag was raised by Zaid
and he has been killed.
And now the flag has been redirected by Jafar, and he has been killed. And the flag has been redirected by Abdullah had naraba and he has been killed. And the flag has been grabbed by a sword from the swords of God Huntington, Walid and Allah granted him victory. Victory was granted to them in the nick of time in the 11th hour at his hands, and as sort of the Allahu and the narrator of this incident, says the Prophet SAW Selim is talking to us in Medina, and his face is streaming with tears, as if he's watching it in front of him. And the Army eventually comes back to Medina and all of the eyewitness accounts see, it happened exactly as he was telling it. sallallahu alayhi wa
aalihi wa salam
there's actually another prophecy, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when Kurdish became Muslim, and the neighboring tribes became Muslim, and they started seeing the superpowers pay attention to them. You see, they weren't paying attention before what is 10,000? What is 12,000? It's amazing to Arabia, but over there, these are superpowers now even they're paying attention. So they got very nervous that you know, sort of Allah, our trade routes, our business goes towards Iraq or the Persians or goes towards a sham where the Romans are, we're afraid. This is just too risky. You can't butt heads with a mountain like this. And he said to them, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
either Halakhah Kisara fella kiss Radha, who were either hella Kapisa Fela case, or badDo when Kisara casseroles or Xerxes or however it's pronounced the historians themselves debate, meaning the emperor of Persia dies, there will be no Emperor for Persia after and there's gonna be no Kisara after him. And when KLEISER is Caesar is just the title of whoever's ruling the Romans, right. And when this Caesar dies, there will be no Caesar after him.
You know how many rulers Sassanid Persia had in their empire? 38 consecutive rulers and the one number 38 Yes, the third, the third, who he said he's going to be the last one that was the last ruler that ever was.
That went down during the Gulf of Oman Empire was over.
That tyrannical regime was put extinct in that time at that ruler. And as for the Romans, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke about him and that was her at Leo's Huracan. And during the reign of Huracan, the Roman Empire basically was finished. They lost their most sacred site, they lost Jerusalem and they began to shrink until they basically collapsed. He called that out sallallahu alayhi wasallam before it took place.
And since time is chasing me
Have as usual, I'll spend a minute or two quickly on what kind of dosage can we take for purifying our hearts with some of these events?
Just the aftermath of Moto
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
said zayde took the flag and fell and Jaffa took the flag and fell, right? Do you know who those are? Ze dibny Hadith that is the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was the adopted son He raised Him UNTIL adoption was re engineered by the genius of Islam to preserve the rights of the orphans and not erase their ancestry. So it became orphan care, not adoption, but the point is, it was his son, his son, Sal, Allahu Allah is Allah. And then Jafar was who Ibn Abu Talib was his cousin.
Jaffa Radi Allahu Allah is his cousin. So he was grieving such a great deal. But if you read about the Battle of Moto, and what happened when the armies came back, you see him on the first day, when the news reports were official or whatnot. He says to them, Go prepare food for the family of Jaffa *a, who managed to whom there has come to them, what has preoccupied them, they're not in a state to take care of themselves, go take care of them, cook food for them take care of that family. And then three days later, he goes and tells them that's enough crying.
Meaning put your trust in Allah let's we're not going to be able to move past it. But let's move with it. As they say in the grief. He's grieving to salAllahu alayhi wasallam. Right. And he said to them, he used to say to the children of Jaffa, oh, yeah, but not by ya. Or some of the Sahaba you say, yeah, binotto yada, Oh, son of the flyer. And the reason why they used to call Jafar the flyer is because he used to console them Salallahu Alaihe Salam and say, Java, those two arms, he lost that motor, he grabbed the flag, and the rider comes by and removes his arm. So he grabs it with the other arm and a rider comes by and removes his arm. And then he grabs it between the two stubs that
are left, may Allah be pleased with him, may Allah be pleased with him. And please, with all the Companions, he grabs it with whatever is left, until someone comes and strikes him from above, and he falls, he says to him, Don't grieve, I saw him, Allah has replaced his two arms with two wings, to fly wherever he wants in Jannah.
He would console them, but at a moment when He's grieving, and when I want to sort of just, you know, pull from that for all of us. In our time, when our heads are so down about soothing ourselves all the time, comforting ourselves all the time, obsessed with our happiness, we are actually less soothed and less peaceful and less secure and less able than ever. But he taught us Allah who is and what it means to be human. What it really means to be human, to seek strength from Allah and extend your care to others, even when you're in pain, and you will be taken care of by Allah azza wa jal. Yes, there's a balance between self care and extending yourself. But we don't know anything about
that balance. We just say that to distract from the conversation. We have too much. Suppose it's self care, our heads are down in a very overly individualistic way, and it makes you hard hearted and miserable. And that's why he said and I'll close with this sallallahu alayhi wa sallam either or not and Yelena called book for azurin Maqbara who am Sahara cilia team. You want your heart to soften to become healthier, visit the graveyards and caress the heads of the orphans.
May we heed the words amaze find his peace and blessings be upon our model and example in our guide in our Imam sallallahu alayhi wa ala early he was happy he edge mind is like a local hero
