Spano, Angela tema de Rossi wherever he can he howdy howdy, my dear brothers and sisters. Today inshallah I just wanted to share some reflections with you, in the month of

00:05:46 --> 00:05:54

the year, in the third year of the history of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. There was an event that took place,

00:05:56 --> 00:05:59

that we as a community can learn a lot of lessons from

00:06:01 --> 00:06:17

the Prophet salaallah alayhi Salaam in the third year of the hatred of the prophets of Allah, remember now a year before in the month of Ramadan, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his companions, the Muslim community, one decisive, critical battle,

00:06:18 --> 00:06:19

which was the battle better.

00:06:21 --> 00:06:32

And in that battle, the Muslim, the Muslim community lost 14 of its bravest and finest men,

00:06:33 --> 00:06:57

14 companions, that we should go learn about them, by the way, we know very little about these were the first 14 people to sacrifice their lives in defense of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And his message and in defense of, of the community, and in defense of their freedom to practice Islam, and to live

00:06:58 --> 00:07:01

as servants to none but Allah Subhana Allah,

00:07:02 --> 00:07:02


00:07:03 --> 00:07:07

But on the other side, the Mexicans who came

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

to where the Muslims were,

00:07:13 --> 00:07:15

the Mexicans last 70 or more

00:07:16 --> 00:07:20

of their top, including some of their top leadership

00:07:21 --> 00:07:38

was was killed in that battle, some of their top so there wasn't almost there wasn't any household in Mecca, except that suffered a loss of one or more individuals that are key individuals and in the Mexican society.

00:07:39 --> 00:07:47

Right, the ones that were spared are the ones that either surrendered, surrendered, surrendered, or the ones that actually fled,

00:07:48 --> 00:08:01

right. Or Abu Sufyan who made a maneuver and was able to evade being part of the battle. So every single household in Mecca suffered, the Americans were furious,

00:08:03 --> 00:08:04

full with

00:08:05 --> 00:08:11

grief, anger and vengeance. And they vowed not to mourn their dead until they go and evaluate them.

00:08:14 --> 00:08:23

And within a year, they were able to amass an army of 3000 soldiers three times the number of soldiers that came

00:08:25 --> 00:08:26

to to better

00:08:27 --> 00:09:08

and when the Prophet salallahu I'd even send them a hurt. And I'm just going to go real quick through the this is just highlights of the story. And within the highlights, you're going to catch the lessons in Charlottetown. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam summon his companions, the community. When the news came to me, the Mexicans have deployed or have marched towards Medina. And the prophet SAW Selim had an opinion of letting them come to Medina, we know Medina very well let them enter the city of Medina disperse separate in the streets of Medina, we can easily find them. This is a massive army, by the standards of these of those days, and we will find them.

00:09:09 --> 00:09:22

And this was the opinion of the elders in the society in the community. Right, including Abdullah, who was the head of the community of community of hypocrites.

00:09:24 --> 00:09:29

So, however, the younger, more

00:09:30 --> 00:09:53

confrontational or more maybe zealous companions, and especially the ones that missed their chance to be with a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Battle of better, they said, Allah, Almighty, Allah and they were the majority. This is Dr. Solomon. Let's go out confront them outside let's let let us let us not wait for them to enter Medina.

00:09:54 --> 00:09:55

We're gonna go outside and stop them.

00:09:56 --> 00:09:59

And they're in their tracks. Let them not think that we are

00:10:00 --> 00:10:02

We're afraid of them, level no

00:10:04 --> 00:10:04


00:10:06 --> 00:10:09

what kind of woman are gonna be, they were the majority.

00:10:10 --> 00:10:17

Right? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam accepted the, the choice of the majority.

00:10:18 --> 00:10:23

Right? Setting a great lesson, Allah Subhana, Allah says, you know, we shall

00:10:24 --> 00:10:30

consult them in the matter. This is something that affects them, impacts them directly. These are their lives.

00:10:31 --> 00:10:47

They're about to sacrifice, they have to be part of that decision making process. You can't just tell them, oh, I made a decision. You know, I'm declaring war, you have to do whatever I tell you. And if someone says, Listen, I have, you know, no interest in fighting this war. You know, what are you?

00:10:50 --> 00:10:53

There are certain, so the process of engaging

00:10:55 --> 00:11:00

so how we're gonna, we're not going to hesitate even if the officer should have told them let's let's go, they would have just followed him.

00:11:01 --> 00:11:41

Nonetheless, the process has ended engaged him in the decision process, right? There's there is a war we're about to fight, how do we approach this, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam considered or he agreed with the with the majority, though his opinion was was different, some of it was him. So he accepted the majority opinion. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam went home, to get ready. And he was the first one to get ready and put his gear. And then when he came out, by the time he came out, they had already a discussion amongst themselves, they had a discussion that we kind of maybe pressure the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, maybe the desire to do something else,

00:11:41 --> 00:12:03

let's, let's so they change their minds. So they said, messenger of Allah, let's stay in Medina, as you first suggested or desired. And he said, Now, we made a decision is it's done, because a lot so just says, What shall we say either as mTOR fatawa lalala. Once you make your decision, proceed, and put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala.

00:12:05 --> 00:12:06

Don't hesitate.

00:12:07 --> 00:12:09

Not all decisions are easy to be made.

00:12:11 --> 00:12:53

Sometimes we have to, as a matter of fact, many times, you have to make very hard decisions, but you make them for a reason. And the last hat Allah opens your hearts to them for a reason. And you have to proceed. You can hesitate. You have to be decisive. You have to move on. Take your time, do your due diligence. Take your time and decision making consult, make a Suharto, ask Allah Subhana Allah but once you make you make your mind, once you make up your mind, and once you decide, you have to proceed and put your trust in Allah habitat. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, may have been a little amateur who had the lovina will be in the way. So once once prophet puts his gear

00:12:53 --> 00:13:39

on, cannot take take it off until the loss of Hamlet Allah settles the matter for him or against whatever, whatever Allah subhanaw taala chooses. So it's all in the hands of Allah. So the prophet SAW Selim went up on the way to hurt Abdullah innovativeness, Allah said, he listened to these young folks, immature guys, and he disobeyed me. And he didn't accept my opinion. You know, I'm not going to be part of this, and he decided to withdraw. So he withdrew with one third of the army almost 300 men followed them a little more than 300, almost one third, one third of the army. And the prophets I send them proceeded with about 700 men to go ahead. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:13:39 --> 00:13:51

when he did that is a good time than someone who's, you know, I mean, what what do you do to these people go after them now have internal fighting, sometimes you have to pick up to pick your battles.

00:13:52 --> 00:14:02

It's not time now to turn and try to subdue these people and try to you know, you cannot subdue these people or try to

00:14:03 --> 00:14:10

in a court martial them or try them or fight them or pressure them and teach them a lesson. Let them go.

00:14:11 --> 00:14:12

Because you have a bigger

00:14:13 --> 00:14:18

no need for this internal fight. Even if you don't disagree with some even if it's a major,

00:14:20 --> 00:14:26

a major division like this, this is serious. This is serious betrayal.

00:14:27 --> 00:14:59

This is this mutiny. This is this is basically serious rebellion. But the promises of them didn't didn't bother, let them go peacefully, stay home, that's fine. They're not going to be part of this great inshallah Tada, victory. And, and they're not going to have any share in this. And also our rights have been filtered. Now. We no longer have people who are not interested or who are not sincere, who are not part of us. We only want people who are sincere, who are dedicated, who want to be part of this

00:15:00 --> 00:15:05

are with us, no matter you know how hard the mission or the task might be.

00:15:06 --> 00:15:57

So let them out. numbers don't matter. Just because you have few fewer rows, or half of the capacity that you were looking for, okay? What matters is these people are dedicated and they're sincere and we count on them and Allah Subhana Allah gives the victory to a little a smaller number right coming at him Kali let him attend Kathy Orton begin Allah. And there is there is precedent to this, by the way in the Quran, in the story of Saul and Goliath right later in his ranks had david david came out of that small number of people that stayed with their their leader, right. But most of them failed the test. When he gave him a test to show the woman who left Ballymena

00:15:58 --> 00:16:14

for the merger was a Whoa, whoa, whoa, levina aminomethyl Corolla Takata neoma bazaruto generally they said, Oh my god, We're outnumbered we're doing that the ones who have faith in Allah Subhana Allah and the and the ones who have determination and have knowledge they said, Come if you

00:16:15 --> 00:16:17

attend Kathie Lee law,

00:16:18 --> 00:16:53

by the grace of Allah and by the power of a loss of habitat, a smaller number can out can defeat a larger number. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam moved to a herd and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, real quick the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, istation 50 people, and they fought the battle station 50 people, you know, these were the archers, who were supposed to cover the back of the Muslims. And you know that in the battle the Muslims won in the beginning. And then the archer has left their their place. And then

00:16:54 --> 00:17:12

things turned against the community, the Muslim community and the prophet SAW Selim was injured, you know, he was hurt salatu salam, his uncle, his uncle was killed many of his companions, almost same number as those who were killed from from the medicals the year before 70 companions were killed.

00:17:13 --> 00:17:24

Right. And many of the archers that left their their their post survived, the ones that stayed the few but the 12 that stayed were killed.

00:17:26 --> 00:17:30

And there was a very serious loss.

00:17:31 --> 00:17:40

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the companions regrouped. And they they remember that,

00:17:41 --> 00:17:46

you know, losing a battle is not going to do doesn't mean it's the end.

00:17:47 --> 00:18:35

And they recovered. And they put their faith in their trust in Allah subhanaw taala. And they took responsibility for their own actions, and the community moved on, and those who were the cause of this world forgiven, right, because in no place, you would find that these archers who made this hasty decision, right, and left their post, exposing the back of the Muslim army for gradually to come around and attack from behind. They were not tried. They were not treated as outcasts. They were welcomed back into the community and the Muslim community practice one of his greatest and most beautiful qualities, forgiveness, forgiveness, and Allah Subhana Allah says in the Ludhiana tolomeo

00:18:35 --> 00:18:43

Kumamoto, Japan in the missus, Allahumma shaytani Vivaldi Makka boo Wanaka de la know, Allah subhanaw taala has forgiven them.

00:18:45 --> 00:18:58

Right? When a loss of habitat issues of this forgiveness, the community forgave them. They did not blame the year the reason why my uncle was killed, you're the reason why my husband was killed. You're the reason why my kids are orphans. None of this house.

00:18:59 --> 00:19:18

I asked Allah subhanaw taala to make you and I have those who stand their ground, those who are steadfast, and when afflicted with any loss or calamity, they endure. And they put their faith in Allah Subhana Allah and they recover. And may Allah subhanaw taala make you an eye of those who listen and follow the best of where they listen to Apollo Heather cola

00:19:30 --> 00:19:34

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam Ana, imagine living in a world that

00:19:36 --> 00:20:00

dear brothers and sisters, I urge you, you know, I know the month of Ramadan is over. But you know, it now is a time for us to go back to look into the tradition and the seer of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his steady and read write and also when we read the Quran, try to correlate it to what we are reading from the legacy from the traditional from the life of the Prophet sallallahu It was so we need to

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

To start doing reading, and I know that most of us prefer including myself, you know, we prefer we're very visual, we prefer to see things and listen to things. But sometimes it's better for you to read and reflect on your own. Right, and try to relate, whatever you read to your own reality, and see what kind of lessons you're supposed to learn from them. Because there is a reason why these events are documented. There is a reason why the Quran highlights these events in the life of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. And their early Muslim community, there is a reason why the prophet SAW Allah Himself addressed it and why our great scholars documented these things. There is

00:20:43 --> 00:21:05

a reason why, you know, tons of books were written, right? analyzing and reflecting and pondering upon these events, there is a reason these are everlasting lessons for us to learn. This is not the first time where we're being defeated. This is not the first time we're being persecuted. This is not the first time we're being targeted. This is not the first time we're facing

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


00:21:08 --> 00:21:24

and aggression. This is not the first time and I'm afraid that it won't be the last time we will continue to be targeted. Right? This, this is not supposed to shake anyone's faith, it's supposed to strengthen your faith. Right? The fact that you're being targeted?

00:21:26 --> 00:21:34

Why? Why are we being treated like this? Why are we being insulted, and, you know, shedding tears and crying is not the solution.

00:21:37 --> 00:21:41

We need to stand strong with our heads up high.

00:21:42 --> 00:21:57

And our hearts filled with humility, and devotion and trust in Allah subhana wa Tada. And as promised somewhere in Savannah with that, and in the promise of His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. That's how a believer stands

00:21:58 --> 00:22:16

full of confidence, faith, and glory, dignity. And that's how we can get back the lost glory. Right. And if we don't witness it ourselves or experience it in our own lives, at least we can pass that, that that, that sentiment and that faith to the next generation.

00:22:18 --> 00:22:24

Right, so that they can hold on to it. And I think one of the present

00:22:25 --> 00:22:25


00:22:28 --> 00:23:01

manifestations of this is what we see with our brothers and sisters who are being persecuted all over the world, right? In China and in other places. But the most glorious of all examples is that our brothers and sisters in Palestine, may Allah Subhana Allah strengthen them, and May Allah subhanaw taala give them decisive victory robinair Tina Mila Nakamoto here in Arusha, Allah to the Pura Vida vida de tener una Millennium kurama in the Canton who have a lot of marriage that Islam and Muslim in agreement omitted Islam is a mirage de
