It's a lengthy beautiful walkthrough of so many of the stories of the prophets and after each of the Stories of the Prophets you will hear Allah azza wa jal repeating in Nephi. Dalek Elia is indeed in this is a sign a great sign of God, one that can act federal meaning and a majority of them were not believers. Were in Arabic Allahu Allah Aziz or Rahim and your Lord is certainly the most mighty, for vanquishing, the defiant, the most merciful for saving that Prophet and the believers right the mighty the merciful Subhana Allah Tada.
It actually just so happens that today is the 17th day now it's the 18th night of Ramadan, which is known to be the Battle of bed in Islamic history. And the battle of bed. It is not the sunnah to speak about the Battle of veterans on its anniversary or anything but it is also a great idea, a great sign of Allah azza wa jal, that's why in Sudan and fell that came down about the Battle of bed, it was called Yom woodfork. On the day of criterion when things became crystal clear, and I basically right a sign of Allah azza wa jal, when he showed that I love these people, you know, we spoke about Barack actually a lot. These are the people of Dubai, these are the people of Quran,
these are the people of righteousness. These are the people that loved the week and took care of them, right? They had all the qualifications. And so Allah made it crystal clear that I am with these people, I am with those that are with me. And so that was the Battle of bed and I cannot, you know, ever begin to even, you know, walk through the events of bedroom, let alone the lessons of bed. But it's important to at least highlight that this is essential. You know, Mohammed Inessa, Ignacio cos are the Allahu taala. And who were here Muhammad. He used to say we used to get taught the battles of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the same way we were taught the surah of the
Quran, a surah from the Quran, why? Because they are inseparable, the seerah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is the context of the Quran. And also this is the generation that embodied so it's telling their story, and it is representing you know, the message of the Quran they are inseparable. There is so much of the Quran you cannot understand without Sera, not entirely with so much you cannot understand we without the battles of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his life and times. And there is so much about the reality of the Quran that was never shining in its brightest colors in its brightest lights, except in that generation also, you know, I can't once
again go through the events within the Battle of bedroom. You know,
the very honest
the very genuine
desire of the Sahaba the very different let's be honest, the very different desire of the Sahaba for Jana came up surface. You know, after everything was said and the Prophet SAW Selim made their eye and he gave them instructions and told him don't use your arrows so they come close, and don't pull out your storage until they reach you very practical, relying on Allah with very all of that is in place. Then he said to them, what
Kumu Isla Jannetty in our dough has similar to a lot of now Rise, Rise for a paradise that is wider than the heavens and the earth and the skies and the earth
are made him the command or the Allah to Allah and who, one of the great heroes of the he was eating some dates that morning.
And you know, he heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say this, and he said blind luck in work means Oh, wow, wow. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stopped her and said, What makes you say, wow, like, are you staring at the enemy? Like, are they too many? Because they were out number three to one and they didn't have their weapons. They didn't come out to fight. They came on to recover a caravan. And so he told him what is making you say, Oh, wow. Carla, no, no, not what you're thinking got a suit Allah Illa Raja Anna coulomb, Lee had nothing, what's my hope, my desire to be from that Paradise from the people of that paradise that you're describing are sort of Allah.
And so he said to him, and terming Alia you are from its people. And so he took those dates that he was holding, and he said to himself, like in Hades if I live long enough to eat these dates, that's already too long of a life. And so he threw them that like what dates like what dates are gonna distract me from Jana and the fruits of Jana and the dates of Jana and enjoyment of what date
And so he threw them down and he dove into the battle ranks dove into the battle. You know, before the battle started also, there are actually endless examples of this are made if nebula cos
said is the brother of sad younger brother. You know he was actually hiding from the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam because this was the first battle and he didn't know if he will be allowed to fight and he was 16 he was 15 to 16 years old. And then when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam saw him, he said, No, you stepped back like you wait, someone's injured, it's a step back. And so he began to cry. Like he's not crying out of the fear of death. He's like afraid not to die. Yeah, and this is not a death cult and how people want to like, you know, shape, or frame Islam. But this is really about his ambition, his aspiration. This is a 16 year old who understands what people
that are 4050 6070 years old, successful on every front have never thought about. They don't think about gender. They don't understand that as definition of success. He understood that what can I possibly do here that can possibly surpass that he was afraid to be left out and on the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam saw him like this he let him go he said go ahead and he let him join the ranks
and you know the examples continue so many before the battle actually. Another you know, incident comes to mind saddle height, Emma Radi Allahu Allahu Anhu when the Muslims were rushing out of Medina to catch the caravan, him and his father said which one of us should go like someone should stay behind with the with the wife and kids, which one of us should go the Father and the Son. So they said, Let's basically cast lots like, let's flip a coin.
And so it came out to be the sons right to go. And so his father is taking permission for him say let me go instead. It's your right. Let me go instead. He said to him, yeah, Bertie. Oh, my father. Oh, my dear father, will Allah He lo qanats Allah, I'll add Jannetty Latha to cobia. If it was for anything else, but Jana, I would have given you precedents, I would have given you preference over myself. Right? That is the most special generation. That is what made them so special. They had things lined up, they had the value system lined up correctly, the priorities were lined up correctly. And so everything else diminished in comparison, everything else was prioritized. In
light of this, this really was the most important thing to them. May it be for us Allahumma Amin I'll end with the hadith of Raphael in the hardage. No, refer Abner offer actually not the other one. So I couldn't believe it. He says that one time
Gibreel Alehissalaam came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he said to him, Maritza Oh, do not libertarian fee come? How do you rank the people of whether amongst you
call up mean of darling Muslimeen These are often the best Muslims ever. So Gibreel alayhi salam said back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Cavalli CheMin Shahida veteran mean and viola Iike this is also true for the angels that got to attend. But Allah chose the very best ever of the angels to attend this battle of veterans support the Muslims. The same way Allah chose the very best Muslims the perfect example of Islam, in these companions that were there at good, so learn their lives, learn their biography, understand Allah's book through it, whether the context of the events or the reality of what we should be taking from that book, and transforming our lives with Allah
Allah, Allah, Allah. Allah has a little broader kind of beginning or early. He was like a vegetarian
