So we are in the,
in the aftermath of the Battle of a herd. And
he said, as the news spread around the Arabian Peninsula, that the Muslims
received a powerful blow from grayish.
The situation of the Muslims became very vulnerable, very vulnerable. Again, we need to emphasize the context, because, oftentimes, and you can find this actually it happens quite often, when people talk about something about the life of the prophet saw Salem, specifically those who want to demonize Islam and Muslims. And they will try to put down the Prophet of Islam Salallahu Alaihe, salam, they would take something out of context. And then they would present it
There's a problem here, because if things are not put in the natural context, people are going to are going to assume a context, people are going to come because we can't see things in isolation, we have to create a context for things. So if people are not given the natural context of the events in the life of the prophet saw, Selim, are certain things the Prophet SAW Selim did.
People would assume the our current circumstances to be the context. And it just doesn't make any sense. It doesn't make any sense. Because the prophets I send them was responsive to his time. He was responsive to the challenges and the conditions and the demands of his time. And this is part of the Sunnah that we have to be able to tap into the prophets is almost responsive. So at times of peace, the prophet someone was extremely peaceful. He was leading the peace sort of efforts, he was
paving the way for more peace in the world. But where there is aggression against the Muslims, and the whole situation was all about warfare. The Muslims had to rise up to match the challenge and the situation. You can't be submissive at a time when you have enemies around you, that are lying in wait for you.
Because that would mean annihilation, being wiped out completely. So when someone brings about the something about an aspect of the life of the prophet Sal, Allahu Allahu wa salam, and then they single it out from its natural context and talk about it today, trying to depict the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as if he I don't know where this noise is coming from, I can't really focus
I think we should be done by now with all these things, but still along with that.
Yeah, so again, so the profits, anything about the profits, I said about the life of the person should be seen in context. And you will need to study the context to understand the responsiveness of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, again a few days ago was watching
some of the thinkers of all time most like famous thinkers. And I saw this clip by Jordan Peterson, Professor, Jordan Peterson from the University of Toronto has really
like rose to prominence the last couple of years. And he was making a comment about Islam. And he said he could never really understand Islam. And for him, he said he had an issue specifically with Islam and peace. And he said a word that really shocked me. And he said, basically, Muhammad
was a warlord. He was a warlord. That's what he said. And he said, this doesn't go hand in hand with the concept of peace.
This, this shows actually lack of information. It just shows lack of information because the world was extremely hostile at that time. It was all about power. It was all about dominance, military dominance, you were talking about tribal society, to one tribe fighting against the other. If you could not defend yourself, physically, you won't survive. As simple as that. That was the language of the of the time, as the world today is extremely now extraordinarily political and
economic, economical, the world today. These are the two things that really characterize our times. Everything is politicized, and everything is commercialized, everything. That's the language these are the most prominent aspects of today's in our world. At that time, it was military power that stood out. And if you didn't have any form of military power you your chances of survival were slim, at best. So for someone to say something like this
About the prophets of salaam knows that, oh, it shows that this aspect of the life of the person was taken out of context. The Muslims were living in extremely hostile environments. internally in the Arabian Peninsula. And globally, you had the Persian Empire, the Roman Empire or the Byzantine Empire at the time. And they were extremely like they dominated the territories, and they expanded the territories into the land of the Arabs. So a sham as some people think it's a wasn't an Arab land, it was an Arab land.
It was dark, it was the inhabitants the normal inhabitants, the original inhabitants of, of a sham were Arabs. So when the Byzantine Empire was ruling over that area, it was subjugating the population. The same applies to the Persian Empire. Iraq, was known today as Iraq was actually dominated or was populated by Arabs, by Arabs. That is why it's actually like the Arabs lived in Iraq.
Specifically Ben who amor was living in Iraq, and to the north of Iraq, where what is supposed to be Kurdistan today where the Kurdish live, this is known as Dr. Reuben Ibaka. There were other tribes living there, these were the inhabitants that were dominated and colonized by the Persian Empire. So the whole world was just like that. And there was war everywhere, and there was word consistent like.
So to come and claim that the Prophet saw was a war lord, it just shows lack of information, and lack of knowledge about the life of the prophet Sallallahu sallam, because at that time, everyone was part of the wall warfare, everyone.
So the prophets also lived at that time. And we said after the Battle of the Muslims became more vulnerable, because the Arabs who are lying in wait Arab tribes around they thought the Muslims now are the weakest point. And now it's the best time to attack them. So the Muslims had to keep an eye on all the Arab tribes, the ones nearby, and the ones even far from the provinces or meet it needed to send people to keep all the Arab tribes under watch. Because at any moment, Medina could be attacked.
And this is this was the situation like, imagine you don't feel safe at home, you don't feel safe in your own city. At any moment, you could be attacked, what does that mean? It means you have to be ready. So to claim that the Muslims were waging war, and so on and so forth, is just outrageous, is so outrageous, as such.
One of the things that were going on,
in the tribe of copper fund or the foreign was living in the middle of the Arabian Peninsula was what's known as Nigeria, and Nigeria today is
made many will not only really see him was part of magic, which is the middle of the Arabian Peninsula, and at the end was more of a Yamama. By the way, Riyadh was more of a Lima and Al Bahrain, because by the way, Bahrain at that time, was not only the small island, let's call today, Bahrain, Bahrain was a great deal of the eastern part of the Arabian Peninsula, wherever we are, to the east of Riyadh, Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and the eastern part of Saudi Arabia. These were all called Al Bahrain, by the way, was all called Bahrain at the time.
So they're in the middle grade and Peninsula. There's the tribe of Gopuram. And the leader was his name was Khalid Abu Sufian. Yes, Khalid Mustafa. So how are the views of Yan, seeing the Muslims at a weak point, he actually started gathering a soldier soldiers. So he invited he sent messengers to all the Arab tribes around many of them, inviting them to join his huge army in order to read the Arabian peninsula of Mohamed Salah Salem and his companions, because they thought it was like a tumor that was eating at the Arabian Peninsula and the culture of the Arabs and the religious life of the Arabs. So they wanted to take the Muslims out.
So how did the Sufi and decided to take the initiative and he started actually gathering soldiers from all around the Arab tribes in the Arabian Peninsula to join him and attack the Muslims in Medina. The Prophet Salam realized that it was a serious threat. And the guy was working on this day and night and it was a serious amount. It wasn't just a threat. It was. It wasn't an empty threat. It was a serious threat to the Muslims. He was serious about that attempt. And he was just waiting to gather 10,000 People that was his target to get 10,000 people. There's something by the way, among the hours of the time, that special
till about 10,000 Number 10,000 Seemed like there's a legend about 10,000.
So the Prophet SAW Selim realized this is something we need to deal with, we don't have power. And now specifically after the Battle of ahead, we're not in a position to fight or engage in any kind of war at all, specifically, with such a huge army and great numbers. The Prophet Salam thought seriously, what would be the best way to deal with it, and there is something we have to realize about human nature, that the general population usually has no benefit. In war.
Usually look at today, superpowers are waging wars, is it for the, for the welfare of their people, it's for political reasons, reasons, most of the time.
But, and any country that's attacked is that in the interest on the best interest of its own population.
So throughout human history, the ones who have been waging war have been the political, the people in charge political leaders.
That's been the case for their own selfish reasons. So they would engage, although would implicate the whole population in a room where there's no benefit, where people risk their lives, and they attack the lives of others, for no real benefit, it's only political issues. Still, the same is happening, and it will always happen. So the province doesn't realize this, that.
I mean, we don't need to engage in war now. And most likely the population or the people who are going to be under the leadership of Halligan or Sofia, and I'm not necessarily for the war, per se. I mean, look at Germany during the World War Two, a lot of the things that happen under the rule of Hitler.
It was just one person or an elite group of people who really sort of brainwashed the whole population and got them to commit atrocities that otherwise they won't commit. That's the problem with being in power, and having,
you know, political power. The problem realize this, and he thought of a way to sort of preemptively get rid of this whole threat without having to engage in a full scale war. So the idea he came up with that this whole war was the idea of how to deploy Sophia, y implicate a whole population. The Prophet SAW Selim, as we said, he sent people to bring him news. So from the news he got was he was under the impression that the population in Nigeria in the middle of Arabian Peninsula, they weren't really full up for war, but with just the instigation of how to deploy Sofia, it was his idea. And he was trying to get people on rally people and having political power, he could actually do this.
So the Prophet Salam realized that if we get rid of heartedness of Yan, there will be no war because the rest of his population really don't want war. So the Prophet I'm sorry, I thought about that. And he said, The best thing is to take out how to diagnose Sofia. So we save our population and we save the population of Nigeria, his own people, even though they're non Muslims. And they were probably willing to take part in the attack. But really, they had no real interest.
So the prophets Salam picked one of the companions his name was Abdullah ibn Oh, nice. Abdullah and Nani's, the prophets of salaam gave him a mission. He said, I want you to go to the area of Autobahn when a lot of fun resides. And I want you to take out holiday Sofia.
There's no need to engage in this war. It's not in our interest, and it's not in the interest of his own people. And he's just a madman who's driving people crazy. Let's get get rid of him. So he said, I want you to go and take him out. You'd be the best person.
So in the long run, I said, I've never seen him I don't know how how Luciferian looks like how am I supposed to know him and recognize him? And this was a secret mission. Secret mission. It's not like he could could go around. Hey, do you know what what are the bits of yarn is how can I meet them? No, you're supposed supposed to be quiet. So he was like more of a commander's mission. Right. You're going to fulfill a mission and that's it. So you need to be you need to play you know, low key you have to really think secret. So the prophets of salaam said in NACA either or ATIA? Who were the tele Harada he's a guy that when you first see him, you're gonna have this shiver going through
Basically, you're gonna fear him you're gonna have this kind of fear towards him as soon as you see him.
So I'll do a lot more when he says he also hola hola Hema haematological and this is all messenger of Allah. I never feed a man in my life. I never feed don't fear the human being in my life. The prophets have said for this man harlot philosophy and you're going to fear you're going to feel like the the shiver is going to run through your through your body.
Perfect. So he goes, travels. And he says, I get to the area of hardness of yarn. And I have no clue how he looks like this is I go to a hill, down the hill, I see a man with a group of women.
I approach him when I get closer to him. As soon as I recognize his face, I feel what the Prophet SAW Salem had described this kind of fear and shiver, he said, as soon as I saw him, I feared him. So I recognize this was the sign the Prophet SAW Selim gave me so it was hard to diagnose Sophia. He said it was so time just as of time now, it entered. And he thought to himself,
I'm gonna approach this man and I don't know when I will get the opportunity to fulfill my mission.
So, and he didn't want to miss our sort of prayer. So he said, I walked towards him as I was approaching him, I prayed my acid with my eyes, in my eyes, and this is something that a Muslim can do. If you're unable to pray standing, you pray, sitting, you're unable to pray sitting you pray, lying on your side or your back. You're unable to do that. You make Salah with what we call is called a map. A map is sign through sign. So some scholars say Ema is with the finger.
So that's standing, that's record. And that's sujood.
Some scholars say no, the EMA sign is with your eyes. So standing looking straight record, you look looking a little bit lower, and sujood. You're looking downward. That's what so how did you know Sofia and prayed with his own eyes? As he was walking to the man, he he he started doing his prayer as soon as he approached him he had was done with his prayer. So he approaches coldness of yarn. And like this is the natural state of the Arabs. He is someone approaching them they would say, many Rajul who's the man?
Who's the man is like a gangster language. Right? Who's the man whose demand? So
he says Roger on semi aerobic? Well, he Jim Mikkeli Delica Rajan Fajr. Alia sherek. I'm someone who heard about you, gathering collecting groups to fight that man, meaning Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, so he came to join you for help in the common Mbits do I find a place to stay over?
calmness of yarn feels okay about me says yeah, I'll give you a place to stay in until we sort of gather all this, like put the army together.
So it says I walk with Him and they were the women were around when we started talking, the women took to the site so we can have a conversation. He said I was walking with him. And I see the moment he's completely heedless. He's not paying attention to me. I already built rapport with him, he feel safe towards me, pull my sword, and I stab him
and finish him off and I rushed to the mountains and I hide in the mountains. He said I look backwards. I see the women I see his body and the women sort of crying over his body and I go and hide in the mountains. Because obviously people are going to start searching for that for the murderer right? So I keep hiding until it was night dark night. Then I rushed to Medina. He says when I reach Medina prosom sees me at a distance the prophets of salaam says if the handle which may this face be successful and
rewarded. It says yeah rasool Allah Allah Who says oh messenger of Allah have killed him. Now a whole war was aborted completely without the need to engage in any warfare without any casualties is just the person who was instigating the whole thing.
So the prophets of salaam gave
Abdullah and Oh nice, his rod,
his personal rod, nonprofit, let them had a rod. When he walked walked with it, he had a stick of some would walk with it. Sometimes when the Prophet Selim gave the hotbar he would hold it.
And this is why in some countries in the Muslim countries, actually this rod or stick when you give a quarterback is a must for them. And if the Imam is not holding a stick, for them, the prayer is invalid.
We say no.
Okay, the rod is not a mass by the prophets and salami, STL the rod and especially in his later years, the last few years of his life, the Prophet SAW Selim as I shall be Allah, one has said hammerless la salam alaikum, the Prophet SAW Salem sort of gained weight, just with old age.
So the Prophet SAW Selim would have his rod and he would depend on it. Now this part of the Hadith afterwards now is weak. This is what we said Now, later on. Now what I'm going to do
actually from Taiwan from the story is weak. But as we said, as a historical narration, it could be accepted. So the President gave him the rod. And he took it. His family saw their own. They said, What's this? He said, the prophet is gonna give it to me.
He said, what for? He said, I don't know. He just gave it to me to go back to him and ask him, he went back to the Prophet and said, Why did you give me your stick? The Prophet said, in her Allah Matan benei, were Beynac adefovir haoma piano, this is a sign to recognize you. Okay, it's a sign between you and me, I'd recognize you on the Day of Judgment with this rod.
So, again, this is the weak narration, but the weak part of the narration, then the he saw he actually tied it up to his sword. And they said when he died, he asked for it to be buried with Him.
Again, this is part of the weaker part of the of the narration. So now we can see the prophets Saddam was actually trying to avoid a war imagine 10,000 people attacking Medina and the Muslims were not going to obviously just, you know, play victim they were they were going to defend themselves. Imagine how many lives would have been taken because of that war. A lot a great deal. So the Prophet Salam preemptively dealt with that and avoided it completely. There were many people that the prophets Allah Salam would send as individuals you can see the prophets of salaam was working day and night, working day and night to make sure the Muslims are safe to make sure any like
serious threat is
dealt with in its early stages to be completely avoided. The professor was still sending you know, people to teach Islam as well. So one of the people outside the commandos of the Prophet sallallahu sallam
was a person called Martha it'd be Mulford Martha it
was a man from Quraysh. He was Muslim, but Quraysh didn't know that he was a Muslim. So it was hiding his Islam what I thought he was just from Croatia, but he would sneak out of McCann go to Medina. And he was in touch with the prophets of Allah when he was sitting on the Prophet SAW said I'm seeing this man in a unique position. This shows the leadership of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam The problem could see could put every person in the right place, every person in the right place, the person could recognize the unique strengths about this person and the unique conditions and situation of that person and utilize that for the
for the welfare of the whole population.
So the promise I'm so method, no one knows he's Muslim, and he's a strong man.
So the prophets of salaam entrusted him with one mission, he would go to Makkah,
and he would rescue the Muslim captives in Mecca.
Where their Muslim captives in Mecca. Yes. Any person who became a Muslim in Mecca, they were taken captive, still, the persecution against the Muslims was still running and going in Mecca. So and some of the Muslims could not make his or anyway, why because they were in captivity. So the Prophet Islam and trusted Martha, Martha to go to Mecca, and rescue tried to rescue these Muslim captives. So he would go to Mecca. And he would find a way without being caught to release or set free these captives. And he would show them the way to Medina, and he would rescue them. He did that a lot. But Martha had a weakness had a weakness from his old days. He was in a relationship with a woman called
with a woman called her enough, now this woman,
like she does not have good conduct in the sense you would have multiple relationships.
And one of those people was Martha, Martha, but now he's a Muslim, and she doesn't know. So one night he came to rescue one Muslim. It was in captivity.
he bumps into and up. She sees him she has like she hadn't seen him for a while. She says hello Melena. She says, Come and join me tonight. Come and spend the night with me. He looks at her and he says yeah and up.
In Allaha xojo, look at her promise Zina. He says Allah needs you know, hold on, no, she's clueless about Islam. When she hears this, she gets upset. Again, those non Muslims in Medina had a lot of animosity towards Muslims. And for her to hear this.
And by the way, although they were they had a relationship together. And she had multiple relationships. But Martha was her favorite. And he himself was in love with her.
So there was a special relationship between them but says she sacrificed that when she heard the statement from him. She said, Yeah,
She she she sort of screamed she to the top of her voice that Yeah, hello Quraysh in her the who are Rajan Allah, the young lady. Salah calm. This is the man who saves your captives who takes the captives and sell them to Muhammad because Galatia had an issue. How come these captives were able to release themselves and make it to Medina. So they realize there was someone helping them out, but they couldn't catch him. They didn't know who he was. Now, she screamed, she screamed, she exposed him. Some of the people of Christ came about to search for him. He said, I went to
one of the sort of gates of many of many of Makkah, one of the exits of Mecca, and I found some sort of a cave and I was hiding there. Some people came searching for me, but hamdulillah they didn't catch me. He said, Then when it was, I felt it was safe. I went back into my car. And I saved the guy, though, that I had in mind to save. So he said, I went to him. I released him, and I carried him on my shoulder. He said, he was,
like too big for me to carry him but I just carried him and I took him outside of Makkah. Then I sort of
took off his chains. And then we made the journey back to Medina. So he says, I'll go to the prophets of Allah and he was salam. And it's
your rasool Allah.
In the worship buena Anki Hua, after all of this, he says on Messenger of Allah, I love that woman called enough in Macau lover, I love her, shall I marry her?
Probably he felt that he would be able, that actually happens today. I'll be able to sort of guide her right and bring her into Islam and marry her right? She was some sort of a prostitute. And she was against the prophets of Allah, Islam and the Muslims. So he says, Yes, Allah Anki Hua. Shall I marry her? The problem didn't give him an answer, but person didn't like it. Then the Prophet Salam calls him later on. And he says,
in Allah azza wa jal, hello, Rama, Nika Hasani, Allah Subhan. Allah made it haram to marry someone who's engaged in Xena, any woman who's engaged in relationships, haram relationships, you're not allowed to marry her.
And a man who's engaged in relationships, how long relationships again, it's haram for a Muslim woman to marry that person. Last but I revealed the verses in Salta Nord Zanella Yong ki who lasagna turn on mush Rica, a fornicator, an adulterer, only marries
polytheist or an adulterer, like like him.
Was Ernie had to learn a lesson in almost three. And a woman who was involved in you know, fornication and adultery. No one marries her except if he is either a fornicator or a polytheist.
So it's not it's not Helen. It's not Hello, someone as I said, My Love Like someone and she's engaged in multiple relationships or a woman loves a man who's engaged in relationships and is they okay, they will be guided, they will fix themselves you can this marriage is invalid.
is invalid. It's like Zina. Even if you register it and you get an imam like you you sort of go to an imam you don't tell them the story. Say I want to marry this woman, Muslim woman. Even though there's an account it's invalid. It's invalid. It's not considered to be marriage by Allah subhanaw taala.
So the prophets of salaam told him, not you?
He said Yamaha Zanni line que Eliza and yet an O Musharaka. was Danny to lanky who had less than an homage Shrek phenethyl.
He said on Delta only only marries an adulterer or a polytheist on mushrik. So don't marry her. Don't bury him. Sometimes you find as we said, like sometimes people are they don't have good control of their emotions. They're overwhelmed by their emotions over towards the person. And even though this person is engaged in bad things, they say you know,
I will guide her or she says I will guide him and I will fix him. But usually what happens is the opposite is usually it's the opposite. So really, a person should be careful as to who they marry, who they marry. You need to be careful, just mere sort of liking the person and having emotional attraction to that person is not enough. You need to find out more about them. This is why it's a must to Ask and inquire and there is something about you
Know these matrimonial services today specifically online, that the person just presents himself, and the sort of cite some references.
But really, I think we, anyone who's in this field, they need to do something more. Because you need to ask you need to, the person needs to find out more about this person, because online, you can choose your references. And you can say whatever you want about yourself. And actually, I personally have dealt with a couple of marriages that were done online, and they ended up in bad shape. And the reason was, the person wasn't honest, when they presented themselves online, later on the person or the wife, or the husband lives with the, with their partner or with their spouse, and they find out all of these hidden things that were not mentioned. Or they find a lot of things that were said,
actually turned out not to be true. So it's a serious matter. And these are things
I mean, really, I don't know how someone gets in a marriage based on a lie. How far can you go with this kind of relationship?
So again, I want you to look at the Prophet SAW Selim as managing things at multiple levels and in different directions. And it's really this is one of the beautiful aspects of the of the personality or the example of the Prophet Sall, Allahu Allah, he was in them, because oftentimes, we like to emphasize, you know, the religious issue, the worship and rituals about which is great. And we like to emphasize certain aspects of the, of the family life of the prophet Selim, which is really great, and the relationship between the problem and his companions, but we fail to see as well how the prophets of salaam was multitasking. So so to speak, he was managing such a complex situation,
Muslims being weak, vulnerable, threats all over the place. And military power to defend the Muslims were not really enough. Muslims were really outnumbered, and didn't have the same kind of equipment and preparation that other tribes had. So the Prophet son was managing all of this successfully, he was looking at reading opportunities, and he was looking at threats and he was handling all of this. At the time that he was teaching Islam at the time that he was receiving revelation at the time, he was solving problems at the time, he was dealing with his family issues with his companions. And he was dealing with not only external threats, but inner threats, having the hypocrites being part of
the Muslim population now, and all their plots and schemes, and having as well, the other tribes, the Jewish tribes around who were really sort of a subtle threat to the Muslims, because they were, they were actually scheming and we're going to see we're going to see probably in the next couple of weeks, some of their schemes and threats against the most subtle and subtle, very subtle and hidden way.
So the Prophet Salam was dealing with all of this. One of the threats that came to Medina was a man from blue armor. Again, Bananarama, I mentioned previously they were living in the, what's known today is South Iraq. And in a sense, because when Obama was one of the biggest Arab tribes, they lived in exile, which is the south east in the south east of Saudi Arabia today at the borders of
Emirates, UAE and the borders of Oman. So they occupied such a huge area. So from panorama there was a man called anaerobe not to fail. It was this kind of obnoxious,
arrogant person who came to Medina and he met with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he gave the Prophets of salaam three options when he listened to the message of Islam he gave the Prophets of salaam three options. He said,
I either you Mohamed, I want to join you but I have conditions three can like I join you with a condition that you meet one of my three one of three options that I will give you. So he says
you will be
the leader of the Arabs around but I will be the leader of the city people. So I want to share leadership with you or Muhammad you become leader. You will lead the people who live all around scattered the Nomad Arabs, but I become the leader of the people in the city. City, obviously talking about Medina
or you appoint me as your successor so when you die I take over I become the leader of the Muslims.
If not, the third option you have that I will put an army together and fight you and get rid of you take over
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam obviously refused this kind of treatment, this kind of threats and turned down all these offers by amaranth notified so to file had such a great animosity towards the Muslims and he threatened he said to the problem, okay, you know, watch for yourself, be careful
and I'm gonna put something together for you. So the Prophet son was very careful with regards to Bananarama to the point
where the President tried to strike relationships with other influential people in the tribe of the same tribe of banana. So the Prophet Salam reached actually to the uncle of this guy.
The uncle was a more influential leader, the uncle this guy, his name was Ahmed Abdul Malik again, his name is Anna Abdul Malik both of them will hammer
so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
wanted to keep amor motto file this man who threatened the prophets of salaam Prophet I wanted to keep an eye on him. So he kept sending some of the companions to go and get news for him from panorama from that tribe. And one day the prophets of Allah when he was sent them sent since eight of the companions, eight of the companions to that area to find about these guys Ben Mohammed, so he sends
among them Habibollah ID
Hello, Kobe ID and
yeah isn't so by email id and seven other seven with him.
So some of them aerations indicate that they were 10 some indications some narrations indicate that they were eights again. So among them is Kobe Buno ID the process of appointing the leader as Alison Ben sabot awesome hypnotherapy totally Allahu unknown.
And so the prophets also then sends them around to get some news. Another narration indicates that the prophet has sent them not to the tribe of vanarama but to the tribal who they who they will. And we mentioned them previously, if you guys remember who they lived between Mecca and Medina.
They lived between Mecca Medina, we said the whole day later on a mammoth Shafi grew up among them to learn the Arabic language, the pure Arabic language from them, because all over the city areas like McCann, Medina and others. There were a lot of non Arabs who came about so the Arabic language was a bit contaminated, but they know who they were the last Arab tribe that kept and maintained the pristine form of Arabic. So Imam Shafi he learned Arabic with them as he grew up there, so his mother sent him there.
So some narration indicated the person who sent these 10 or eight companions to find out about who they are not about banana. So they go there they go.
so the Yes, so when they reach that area,
some of the people of some of the non Muslims again, the prophet is and I'm always feared for his companions. We said the Muslims were not safe in Medina and outside of Medina and mostly means your wanted your wanted, so anyone who caught a Muslim would actually kill them.
So people literally were hunting for for Muslims. So the
Yeah, so when these groups reached the area where they were supposed to gather news,
there was a group of about 100 people from Benalla Heon from Benalla and a small clan called Ben Hoolahan. They saw these Muslims so they chased him and let's say they were 10 The others were hundreds. So they chase chase the Muslims until they caught them so the Muslims went to this small hill they went to the top which is the best position for them to defend themselves. And they surrounded them and they said, You guys if you surrender, we're not going to kill you.
If you surrender we're not we're going to spare your lives but you know we'll see what we will do with you but we were not going to kill you.
So some of those Muslims decided to surrender hand their weapons and give in
among them was Kobe Biman already
awesome. Even a fair bit said not I'm not gonna I'm not gonna surrender to a nun. I
Like an enemy, a non Muslim like this, I'm not going to fight for my life.
So he and three others fight
and they get killed.
Kobe Bucha ID is taken and another person is taken his name is
Zed Z didn't an awful zero Nofal. And Habib, no ID or take on a third person from the unsolved they're taken, and the others were killed. Now, those people from Ben Hoolahan one of the reasons they wanted these Muslims was that Quraysh had
put some kind of a prize for anyone who killed it, oh, who brings them on Muslim.
So this is why they wanted to take these Muslims, hand them over to Quraysh and get the price get the money
out some specifically as some of the saboteurs wanted. Why, because Ocimum Nefab it
did very well in the Battle of Ohio, and he killed some of the flag carriers of Quraysh. And their family, the family of, of these people who were killed from college, they wanted to awesome, they put a pry a huge amount of money on his head, you'll get him and you will give you this huge amount of money, anyone who could catch him.
Why? Because there's the sister of the ones who died in the battle of heart she said, If I get hold of awesome inhabit, I shall kill him. And I shall get his call and I will drink alcohol in his skull in revenge of my brothers because he killed two or three of her brothers in the Battle of God.
those people from vanilla here and when they killed Osama bin sabots
they wanted to get his buddy so they could give it to that family and Aquila ish, and that woman would give them the price. But Allah subhanaw taala has sent around his body,
wasps and other insects. So anyone who was trying to approach the body of Assam with habits would be attacked by these wasps.
So they couldn't get to him. So they said let's wait until nighttime at nighttime. You know wasps won't be around. So we could, we could take his body. But as soon as they left his body, Allah spent Allah sent down rain, heavy rain, and it washed his body away and it was never to be found.
at all, it was never it was never to be found. So Allah subhanaw taala protected his body in that sense. Some narrations indicate that Assam into habit and already made a dua he used to make a DUA, he asked Allah subhanaw taala to protect his body from being taken by the people by by the enemies of Islam.
So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada accepted his so who was taken? Who baby daddy
was taken. And
yes, so Hobin ID and zt. Both of them were taken to polish. And the answer is the third man that I'm sorry, as soon as they surrendered, and the guy started handcuffing them. So he said, No, that was not part of the agreement. You guys are gonna sort of shackle us. This is you guys are
like you're not staying true to our agreement. So he resisted and they killed him. So the only ones who remain from the Muslims alive now are hobo nobody and Zaid, both of them were taken to Makkah and they were given to you know, whoever was hunting for them and Maccha and these guys got the price.
Hubei Cobain was taken by a family that thought basically because he had killed one of them in the Battle of Baghdad or hood. So they took him as captive and they appointed a date to execute him and kill him and revenge. So they kept him there as
as a captive. And when it was time for him to be killed. He said I want to meet Allah subhanaw taala in the best shape. So he asked for a blade. He asked for a blade to sort of shave and get himself ready like clear, clean himself. And as he got the blade later on one of the children of that family, one of the toddlers walks right? And he sits on the lap of her baby even ID.
The mother of the child panics, she sees the child on the lap of Habib the captive, and we are about to kill him now. And he has a blade
what's the thought that runs through her mind? He's gonna take
Take the child hostage, right? And try to bargain and try to save himself. So when she sees him, she makes that noise like, oh, that shows fear. So he looks at him, he says, You think I'm gonna kill the child.
He says, We the companions of Muhammad want to this.
And he sends the child back to his mother. Again, these are the manners of Islam. It's not he's not like he's not someone
and said, This is an opportunity for someone who's pragmatic, you would say, Oh, this is an opportunity, my life is on the line, these guys are gonna gonna kill me today. And that's the child. So at least let me use this child. He said, No, this to this child, this child isn't is innocent. And I want implicate the life of an innocent child in such a thing. If I die, I die for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. Again, this shows the mannerism in Islam. He didn't say like, unfortunately, some people who claim to be Muslim today or speak in the name of Islam, they say, they kill our children, we kill their children, we do this, look at the manners of the companions of the Prophet
He had the child on his lap, and he had the blade in his hand. He didn't touch the child, he sent the child back to his family, because the child has nothing to do with that.
Again, these are the principles these are the manners of Islam, and this is how Muslims should behave.
Then he was taken.
he asked before he is killed, to pray to like to ask for water he made will do and he prayed to rock and he said, Well, I would have prayed longer than that. I would have elongated my prayer. But I don't want you to see it. I don't want you to think that I'm scared of death.
So he prays and then this was basically called sunnah to
the to like Asuna before being killed. Okay, so if anyone is to be executed, okay, it is actually recommended that they pray to Allah chi to be the final thing they do in their, in their life.
and then he was killed and he has two lines of poetry that are very famous where he says, well, let's let's do a belly Hina octagonal Muslim and Allah you were gencanna fella, he must lie. And I don't, I don't care
which way I die, as long as I die as a muslim.
And he says, well, that he can see that in either he shot you back, I let him slide issue in Missouri. And this is for the sake of Allah. And Allah blesses. And I asked Allah to bless, you know, this tone body, because in some narrations that indicate they actually took him and they didn't kill him straight away, they started cutting his body into pieces, cutting pieces out of his body,
to torture him like they killed him in a very painful
the woman, the mother of the child, she says, I've never seen a captive, like her baby when it
in terms of his mannerism, and she says, I used to see in his hands the fruits of summer at the time of winter,
like fruits out of season. And she says, I knew, I knew, because those seems that this woman actually became Muslim. Later on. She was I knew this was not given to him by any human being, this was a gift from Allah subhanaw taala.
Again, let's go back to Banana, banana.
the encounter between American auto failed who came and gave the problem three options and he was very disrespectful.
And it seemed that there was he had a hand in the Muslims being killed the one the eight, or the group of eight or of 10 people among them was awesome and Kobe. Right? So it seems there was some connection, he had some connection. So who came to sort of fix things, his uncle, his older uncle, and again, if you don't mind, I'm Roberto Malik. He came to the Prophet SAW sometimes the prophets of Salaam and calm him down. And he said, I like apologize if my nephew spoke to you in a disrespectful manner, or if he had a hand in the murder of the Muslims of these your companions and so on and so forth. And as a good gesture, as a good gesture. He had some people with him from his
own tribe, who actually claimed to be Muslim and he thought they were Muslim. So he said, as a good gesture I would like if you want you can send to my land to my people, some of your compound
Yes, and I would protect them there would be under my protection. You could send them and they could preach Islam. Among my population, I don't mind.
I don't mind and if my people accept Islam, I'd support them. I'd be okay with this.
So when he, when he's had this kind of discussion with the person, the person and explained to him what Islam was, but he refused to become Muslim, and he had gifts with him the person refused his gifts.
So, but he gave the person that offer and the person thought it was a good offer. So the Prophet saw some sense 70 of his companions to banhammer seven TVs companions, these companions were called a rock.
Most of them were from the Tsar, and Anissa nomadic how the Allahu Anhu describes them, he says, These people were selfless. There were so devout, that at night they would spend their night just studying Quran and reciting Quran and praying at night and the mystery they lived in the masjid, they were from Allah sofa, from the people who lived in a sofa, they dedicate their life for this and they used to feed the people of sofa they used to feed the poor Muslims how they would go during the daytime and
you know, collect wood and sell it in the market and buy food and drink with that and put it in the masjid for Allah sofa. So there was such like, devout people, selfless people, and they are the ones who lent the most of the Quran so the prophets of salaam sent 70 of them to Benu animal in order to based on the invitation of Mr. Ben Malik, one of the greatest leaders
so the prophets of salaam sends them there as they were on the way and it was by the way it's such a huge like it's a long journey of travel is a long journey of travel but these people are protected they're under the protection of Amer bumalik and this was known so no one should no one can attack them anyone attacks them is gonna get in trouble with Amazon nomadic nomadic is gonna fight against them. Because these are under my protection. And there's something we explained it it was very big among the Arabs in the Arabian Peninsula even until today. It's it's actually a big thing. If an if someone gives you their protection, no one can touch you. And if anyone touches you, or like
violates this kind of protection, it is as if that person was himself violated he's gonna fight to protect that.
they were traveling the 70 competitors were traveling.
They amor binotto file the other obnoxious guy. He heard about that.
So he tried to get some of his tribe, a number of them and we're talking about 70 companions so he needed a good number to fight them. He really wanted to set them up, ambush, ambush them and kill them. So he spoke to some people in his tribe that refused they said no your uncle I'm herb nomadic. Give them protection. We're gonna we're not gonna play with this as a serious matter. So he goes to another clan from the called Ben who Salim
from them is
smaller clans called rel DeQuan and rasa Yeah, three ones run the web one and rowsley three of them. He approaches them and he says, Listen, some of these, you know, Muslims, and as we said, there's a state of enmity among most against Muslims. He said these people, we have an opportunity. 70 of them are here, let's go and kill them.
They buy into this, they join him.
And they start searching because
they heard about the route that this group is following. So they try to sort of Camp along the routes.
Now the Muslim 70 companions are clueless about this. So they're traveling among them is a man called one of the compounds called haram.
And by the way, haram was a common name there. It doesn't mean he's haram but it's just a name haram because haram means protected as well means protection. We said Do you remember
the Father of Jabara bin Abdullah Jabeur bin Abdullah, his name is what Abdullah Al haram. Okay, one of the company's name names was haram. He was probably the leader of them. So as they traveling, they were speaking to whoever they come in contact with about Islam. They were speaking to people about Islam. So, and they saw this group of amaranth not to fail, but they were clueless about them. But this and again, these companions of the Prophet salaam were not naive. They they know the danger. And this is why they had the way to approach people was to send one of them only to any group they come in contact with. So this person speaks with them. If it's safe, he would call the
rest of the group
if he feels
It's unsafe to try to withdraw as safe as possible and they will just, you know, skip the idea to talk to this to these people. So how am said let me go and approach these people? Well, he didn't realize that these people were there actually lying in wait for these Muslims. He says let me go and speak to them. And you guys watch your watch me from a distance. So if it's safe, I'll come and call you to join join me. If not, then probably they do anything to me, you guys will be able to see and you're at a good distance to sort of escape, said fine. So haraam goes and approaches them and he starts he says, Would you guys be interested? If I offer you something talk to you about something?
They said yes, why not? They recognized him. He started telling them about Islam, I'm gonna fight this among them. So he gives a gesture or he brings to another one person to turn around Hallowmas he's speaking and stop him from behind. So how am I speaking to this group, this guy comes with a spear. And he thrusts it in the back of haram. And it goes through his body and comes up through his stomach.
And obviously, slashes, like, splashes blood. So Hallum completely clueless about it, he sees the blood coming
through his stomach, he looks at it, and he splashes it on his face. And he says, foodstore bicarb have made it by the Lord of the camera. Basically, he realized he just got killed
for the sake of Islam as you can just conveying the message. And it shows that this man was aware was like,
he was conscious about living for Allah subhanaw taala, he was conscious about, you know, possibility of being killed for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala Otherwise, it won't occur to him in such a way, in an instant, as soon as he saw the blood, he realized I'm dead for the sake of Allah. Like, what a great like gift for him. Subhan Allah, this reminds me of, I think, a couple of decades, there was a an incident where a Saudi airline airplane crashes into another plane, there was some miscommunication. And two planes crash head on.
Head on was it was famous about two decades ago. And
so they got some, like wrong coordinate coordinates from whoever was signaling them from the ground, etc. And the two planes just as it collided head on, face to face was one of the worst incidents in the history of aviation.
So hello, and they got the black box from the Saudi plane. And it was recording what was happening in the pilot cabin.
It was interesting, because there were
they were traveling in the clouds. They were traveling in the clouds, and the radars were not functioning in the Saudi airline.
So simply what happened they were traveling in the clouds.
And the only thing recorded from the pilot was
bomb crash. That's it. So the moment the pilot was flying the plane, and in the clouds, but no signals on the radar, no information from any like, ground base or anything, no communication.
It was a split second when he saw the other plane and imagine each two planes, you know, flying on opposite sides face to face. It's a split second the moment he saw the other plane crashing into what what what was the only word he uttered? Later, he didn't even finish it. So Leila, and that's gone.
That tells you this person most likely was connected to Allah subhanaw taala and actually, I think there was a news press and his brother said how like what what a good Muslim he was and his throughout his life.
So that shows you the first thing in that split second was to mention Allah subhanaw taala to mention Allah subhanaw taala. So and this you know, sometimes you might want to ask yourself, what's the first word that jumps to your mouth when something bad happens?
So with this Haram as soon as he stabbed for him, it was like martyrdom.
So it shows that his mind has already been working on this he's uh, he was waiting for this.
Again, so when the others saw this
they tried to withdraw but the that group of
I'm about to fail and the other ones they caught up with them. And they killed
all of them.
They killed all of them. So
when these companions before they were killed when they realized they were stuck, they just said they realize they're going to be dead. Some of them said hola Houma.
Or basically they said we wish that someone could tell the province of salaam that we're going to die for the sake of Allah. So they said Aloha mobile live and Abby yak and their Latina Robina ferrata Yana or Alina or Allah. Send the message to your messenger that we have met you and we are pleased with you and you are pleased with us. And actually that Allah subhanaw taala revealed Quran with these words.
And Latina Arab bene ferrata Janna what Alina I know.
This was part of the Quran, but later on it was abrogated.
This part was abrogated. This is on Sol Bukhari, by the way. This is insane because this was part of the Quran which was abrogated. So there were verses from the Quran that were recited at some stage in the life of the prophet Salam. And during the life of the prophesy Salam, they were abrogated, basically taken out of the Quran, by the command of Allah subhanaw taala.
So this was one of them when the prophets of salaam received the news debrief came to him and told him the news the problem was extremely sad and angry the person cried and the prompts and did something new at this time.
Every Salah footage of the whole ASR Maghrib and Isha the Prophet SAW Selim at the last record of each Salah he would make pollutes
basically after record and the last raka he would raise his hands and he will say Hola Hola. Hola Hummel and Ritalin with a Quan and what Elsa Yeah.
Oh Allah destroy over in the corner also Yeah, the three clans who kill these Muslims that's it. He didn't say Allah Medina effeminate. I have enough I'm not on a straight away, oh Allah destroy them. That's it, then he would go to food. So anisometropic Allahu Anhu. He says
the Prophet son spent a month making a note every Salah
asking Allah to destroy these clans to destroy these clans. Now the problem is gonna after this month he has a plan to deal with these people. And Allah subhanho wa Taala
actually does something to the person who conspired the whole thing and not to fight
and we're going to see this inshallah we'll find out about this inshallah next week, so we're going to stop here. So last lesson, Mohammed. Early, he was so happy he was
