little Haman him, I mean or salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad, while early he was heavy as you may know that
we reached the stage in the life of the prophets of Allah and he was setting them where we said, after the setback of HUD, the Muslims needed to pull themselves together they needed to
establish themselves as
as a group of people who are able to defend themselves because we said it was the it was the norms that we said previously, most of the Arabs in the Arabian Peninsula took a state of enmity towards the Muslims, they saw they saw them as renegades.
So the Muslims were
vulnerable to almost everyone, they were targeted by almost everyone. And weakness is not only weakness, but what it means people will be tempted to attack you. And we saw that a lot of fun, we're actually setting something together, where the prophets I seldom sent one of his companions. And he gotten rid of that leader, in order to avoid the war completely. We saw one of the most toxic themselves were preparing an army for the for the Muslims, the prophet Salam took them by surprise. We had previously other tribes who set the Muslims up, they sent
some messengers to the Prophet SAW Selim. And they said to him, we have people are interested in Islam, why don't you send some of your companions to teach them prophets. They set them up and they killed them. So we've seen that Muslims were really
being targeted by everyone. So just being weak is a vulnerable position you don't want to be in. So the Prophet Salem made sure that they actually sent a strong message to everyone around that we can defend themselves. And if you just if you put together a plan, or think of attacking the Muslims, you might find tomorrow you might find the Muslims at your doorstep. So just be careful, don't mess with us. That was the message that pops around was sending regardless.
There was a tribe from Medina that was exiled, that was kicked out of Medina those Warbonnet were born on Naboo and Benin, wa. I believe you mentioned the story before the day when the Prophet salallahu Salam.
O when the group of the companions were massacred and killed. One of them survived was abnormal, your Bumbry
he he was left, he was spared and he was left to come on the way back to the Prophet Solomon, he found two people, two individuals he met accidentally, he figured out they were from the heat they were from the same tribe who set them up and killed his companions. So he sort of took them out. He came to the Prophet salaam, the process and I'm really felt bad about this, why would you betray such a trust because these people had a had a covenant and agreement from the promise of an agreement of safety. So the Prophet SAW Salem was going to pay their blood money to their family, the Prosser Lam told my mama you killed them. And this was a great scenario, to reconcile with their
family and pay them the blood money. And it was such a huge amount. It wasn't like,
like a small amount of money. So and the agreement the process that I had with with all the tribes in Medina, including the pagan Arabs and the Jewish tribes, which is the common defense, that we would share any responsibility. So there was blood money on any party, the others would actually pay a share, contribute a share to that. So the Prophet Salam went to bonobo here because he was collecting the blood money for those victims of omega binominal Bumbry to hand this money over to their families. So the person collected whatever the Muslims could collect, then he went to visit Manabu year in order to get them to pay their share. Similarly if when another had to pay blood
money to anyone the Muslims were supposed to contribute. So the problem take someone with a bar overcome the low normal pub other companions he pays been on a visit and he says we need you to you know pay your share or contribute your share in this blood money. They said yes, we can do that the left of the province and send them there and then they conspired. One of them thought let me throw this you know huge stone on the on Muhammad and get rid of him once and for all. The others warned him and they said you know, this is a high risk. We know that he's the one mentioned in a
One scripture, so we know he's going to be protected. So don't take that risk because you're going to miss him. And if you miss him, we're in real in real trouble with him. Nonetheless, he goes about to execute the plan. The problem was sitting there he, he's informed by Gibreel Ali salaam about their plan.
All of a sudden the person leaves and here's the companions that he doesn't say a word he leaves. And he goes them the Companions catch up with them later on, say what happened? He tells them the story. They put them small army together, and they set a seizure on one another. They say, the President said that to sack you know, now, if he had a bad day, you'll never live with me in Medina, I can't trust you. We have an agreement. We have a covenant and it's written guys are trying to kill me.
the Muna 15, specifically, Abdullah, innovativeness saloon, he was friends with one another, and he said to them, you know, don't give up. I'm going to support you and I have 2000 people to help you out. But obviously, that was just lip service.
So they ended so they really thought of giving in and just leaving Medina. But with this reassurance from Abdullah and or even a saloon, they decided to resist, they resisted the opposite and set a siege around them for about two weeks, then they realized there was no help, they decided to just, you know, accept to leave the province as a lump, pass a judgment upon them to leave, Medina leaving everything behind them. That's what they did. Some of them went to a sham north to Syria. And some of them moved to North of V. Medina, and they settled in Haber. And they became the leaders of they became the leaders of labor.
they haven't forgotten that. So their enmity grew more intense. And
the start planning more seriously to get rid of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and these Muslims, again, you can see that the Muslims have been targeted. Muslims are always under attack, are always under attack. So anyone who claims that, oh, the Muslims waged war against others, and they were spreading Islam by the sword. I mean, that's a broad claim, and is really baseless, when you read the real story of the provinces and realize Muslims were targeted by everyone, they had to defend themselves. And those times, if you had a cause, or if you were,
like championing an idea, if you didn't have power, you have no chances of surviving, that was all a matter of power. And throughout the ages, I mean, this power manifests itself in many ways.
we have creative of top, obviously, the leader of banana Haven, and Salem ignoble hockey, as well from the new novel, nowhere.
they set out from Harbor, and they go to Mecca. They speak with the leaders of Macau, Abu Sofia, and the others. And they say, Listen, Muhammad is establishing himself. Every day that passes, he's just getting stronger. He's getting more followers. He's getting more,
more power. He's getting more established, he's building connections, we need to get rid of him before he gets completely out of hand.
And you guys have tried to deal with him. You couldn't publish by yourself. Others tried to deal with them individually, like Hopper fun and others, they couldn't deal with him individually. We have a new
game plan. And this is basically to get together and form a huge army where Muslims have no chances of winning that war. We need to outnumber them by far. So when we attack them, they have no chances of surviving. Croatia agreed to that bucket. I said this in before we agree with you, you are the People of the Scripture, you received revelation. Okay. The revelation to Musa that he said,
and the world
since you are People of the Scripture tell us about Muhammad, which is better his religion or our way of life, the way of life of Quraysh because gray still claimed that we are upon the religion of Ibrahim. So salaam have not been a lot of those from Ben and Malia, they said, No, your religion your way of life is better than
yours is. They know it's not that's not true. They know a worship of the idols compared to the worship of Allah subhanaw taala and Allah Subhanallah blames them the Quran for this Allah exposes them for this. So Quraysh signs in they agree.
Those people also go haven of clubs. They go to have fun
and they offer them the same proposition A lot of fun. You know, our n, they go to Benu saline, they go to other smaller tribes, and they get the numbers, all of them subscribe, and they agreed to engage, or to be part of this army that's going to attack the Muslims in Medina and annihilate them completely wiped them out. So get rid of them once and for all. So
Quraysh puts in around, I believe 4000 PiFan put about 3000 soldiers, other tribes, smaller ones, banana leaves themselves from Harbor, they bring about some and they all reach the number of 10,000
That's a huge number for the Arabian Peninsula 10,000 10,000 Fully equipped, they decide to march to Medina so they put the plan together they start actually marching to Medina we said the prophets of Salaam is not oblivious to this the prophets Allah kept everyone under watch the news reached him. Now Muslims problem trying to gather the all of the companions he has the numbers the maximum reaches 3000 3000 What are 3000 gonna do with and 3000 Muslims at that time we're living in poverty, a lot of lack a lot of the Muslims were didn't have houses to live in. They were living in the masjid and a sofa that was sleeping in the masjid. And now the houses that families, Allah Most of
the food of the Muslims was some dates and some barley that's everything they could eat. That's all they had. Muslims were really living living in a state of extreme poverty. They're going to face 10,000 And now we have 10,000 as fully equipped, and
that's very well fed.
So the province of Salem, here's the news beforehand.
Again, he calls for counsel. He asked the Companions What do you think some sailors go and fight them out? But the problem still has memories from or heard that what if we find them outside and we greatly outnumbered these people already? We are hungry. We are completely outnumbered. So what are we going to do?
Here Salman? Alpha is probably Allahu Anhu says Yara Salah Hakuna fie Faris either hosted on Doctrina.
in Persia, we had this tactic of war, that whenever there was a siege around us, or whenever we were attacked, we would actually dig a trench around us,
especially when we were like less in number. And we're at a disadvantage in terms of equipment and an arms etc. So we would actually use geography to help us so we would dig a trench and they wouldn't be able to cross over. So by this would actually protect ourselves because you either build walls and you build the castle to protect yourself or you dig you go down rather than going up so people cannot cross over to your enemy. And like I said those times then didn't have missiles. The biggest they had were just shooting arrows. And if you really protected yourself fortified yourself, they couldn't get to you. Spears won't do much. So really digging a trench it was a good thing. But
the prophet Salam had the news that it's within a matter of week, these 10,000 troops would be outside of of Medina and we just 3000 How can we dig a trench around Medina but the problem really idea appealed to him. And he he considered the geography of Medina. Again the geography of Medina is really interesting, very interesting. We have on both east and west, both sides of Medina we have what they call Alhambra. And Hala is more of a hilly area it's hill but it's made of these basalt stones that are made of lava.
By the way, the land of Medina is volcanic. You know there's a lot of volcanoes around Medina. There's a lot sometimes they get active. This is why they get those earthquakes, sometimes they get smoke. Sometimes they get actually some of them erupts small, you know slightly. So the area of Medina is made of that love originally so around Medina there was too hilly areas that had these hard stones.
And these are immune to armies. You can't cross them and foot as an army
and you can't cross them on horses or camels. It's a very bumpy area. So speaking from a military perspective, you could not cross into Medina through these two areas. These two areas that have to Hara they were actually protecting Medina from south from east and west
and slightly to the south.
have slightly to the south and to the south of Medina there is a couple of mountains.
The only entrance into Medina is through the north. And that's why in the hood Quraysh they did not come to Medina from south where Mecca is. They turned around and they came from the north and that's where they put the Muslims by mouth. That's the only entrance to Medina for an army to enter Medina only from the north. So the Prophet and I'm thought he said the geography of Medina protects us from east and west and from the south. The only open area that we have in Medina is the North. That's where we need to dig, dig the trench and that's it. There was a small opening to the south east and this is where Ben Araya is the tribal manakala is the proximate and said we have an agreement with
them of mutual defense common defense. Okay, we're going to speak with them the person who spoke with them to make sure that they are still on the agreement. They said yes, we own the agreement, whatever happens, we're not going to allow anyone in and if anyone tries to sneak into Medina from our area, we're going to fight them back. Cool. So the Muslims have to deal with only the north of Medina, we have 3000 people. We have 3000 people and this borders these borders of Medina, northern borders of Medina are about
you're talking about maybe eight to 10 kilometers
between the mountains. The to between the two sorry, the two sides of Medina east and west Hydra, the area between them and there's in the middle of Jebel Salah, the mount of cellar, small mountain, you don't need to dig that, but you need to dig around them. And that's around eight kilometres to 10 kilometers. Muslims are 3000 the prophets Allah wa salam gives around eight meters, which is about 10 arm's length 10 arm's length,
sorry, 40 arm's length for each 10 people.
The problem divides the Muslims into groups of 10 people each group, each group is responsible for an area of 40 arms length, which is about sorry, which is about 3032 meters, they're supposed to dig a trench that what's the width of the trench is supposed to be around three to four meters
in average, three meter four meters.
And in depth about two meters, one to one and a half to two meters.
So each 40 People group of four to have 10 people sorry, are responsible for about this 40 arms length. They're supposed to dig it. And the interesting plan, the proposal and put put together is that the group that digs that part of the trench during the war later on, they're supposed to guard it and protect it.
And that's a very interesting, really very intelligent strategy. Why? Because that's going to be your shirt during the siege during the war. And if you don't do it well
is going to come to you. So you deal with the consequences of your own performance. Do it well, you're protected. Don't do it well. Okay, you're vulnerable, you're going to protect that you're going to basically get for yourself, let's see.
And the Muslims actually managed to do it. And Muslim has managed to do it in such a short time a few days. But it wasn't an easy situation. It really wasn't an easy situation. It was a time for as you said famine among the Muslims, to the point where the prophet saw some of them the only thing that he could offer the only food that he could offer to the Muslims who were digging the trench in his hard work. They didn't have like, you know, machinery What did they have?
axes and what they had shovels that's everything. That's all they could dig with. And anyone who's been there you know, more most of it is rocky rocky area.
So how do you do that such a lot of work. So the Muslims were working really hard and they were encouraging themselves and they didn't have much food most of the food they had like each one would have a handful of barley to eat every day. And it was mixed with very low quality fat
very low quality fat that smelled really bad
that's what they that's what they had that's the food they had.
And for about two to three days there was a time where they had no food at all like they didn't have anything to eat
so Jabra min Abdullah of the Allah one of the companion he says, profits are so long because one day they were digging in one area and they came across this huge massive rock. They couldn't they couldn't do anything to it won't break.
So they came to the Prophet salallahu Salam and they said there is this they could could Yeah, they call it could yes such
A huge storm. They say we can't do anything to it. Like it's really standing in the way. The prophets of Allah Islam comes to it and he makes DUA and he hits it with an axe. He breaks a third of it. And he says, Allah or at least to my fatty half hours, this is Lila Allah was given the keys to Persia.
He used to pitch you, then he hits it the second time you break to the second third of it, and it turns into dust that that side of it, and he says Allahu Akbar, or li to my fatty Hashem, I was given a sham, natural Syria.
And then he does the third time and he says, Allahu Akbar, I was given the keys to an Yemen, probably to my fatty Halima. I was given, you know, Yemen.
Now the hypocrites at that time because they played a major role, the hypocrites they made it played a major role in trying to destroy the morale of the Muslims. So they said, Well, wait, you're gonna have you're gonna as Allah Subhan Allah says in the Quran, whether you're gonna if you're gonna let it be him Maradona, then Allahu wa rasuluh Allah.
They say the hypocrites and those who have illness in the heart, they say what Allah and His Messenger promised us is a Mirage is nothing. There's no reality to it. So they were really trying to destroy the morale of the Muslims. And they said at that time, look at him, we can't even go to answer the call of nature. And this man is promising us Persia, a sham and the Yemen. What are you talking about? Like it's still it's like an impossibility for them. Or you know, when people really believe in something, and people work hard towards it. There's the word impossible doesn't exist. It just doesn't exist, especially if you have the help of Allah subhanaw taala. So.
So one day, on that day Jebel Abdullah he says, When he saw that he looked at the Prophet Solomon, he sees that the Prophet SAW Selim, you know, because when you get really hungry, your stomach starts eating itself, it's the acid in your stomach starts eating itself. So a very
common tactic at the time was to put one stone or two stones on the stomach and tie them with with a belt. So it would put pressure on the stomach so you don't feel the hunger, the pangs of hunger. So he says, he says, I look at the stomach of the Prophet Solomon, he's tied to stones the stomach and I felt really bad. So he seeks permission from the prophets of salaam to go into MIDI. Now they're, they're doing all this work out of Medina to the north, outside of Medina, and no one was allowed to go into Medina except with the permission from the Prophet Solomon was such a hard time. They couldn't even lose the effort of one man they couldn't. So the problem had to manage this well. So
Jabra Magdala seeks permission from the provinces enemy, he says, I will just want to go home to do something. President gives him permission he goes home he says to his wife, isn't I see the province is having tied to stones on his stomach. I really feel bad. Do you have anything that we can give him to eat? When he's starving? She says Allah, I only have some little vegetables. And I have an app which is a small goats.
small tiny goat. He says, okay, just slaughter the goat. And get, you know, whatever flower you have. So it wasn't vegetables, it was flour. Okay, sort of make a dough out of it. And let's just cook it and offer the problem some something. She said to the to her husband, she said listen, call the professor and let him bring one or two people with him. Because we don't have so much food. This food is not going to be enough for anyone.
It is fine. So he goes to the prophets and suddenly says Rasul Allah, hello, my love bomb. There's some food I would like to invite you to the province and says what do you have is I have a small goat, small tiny goat
and a little bit of flour that we made and we're going to make into bread.
So the prophets ism says yah, masha Allah, Al Maha Julian all unsolved problem calls out to everyone. Why don't you everyone? Jabber is inviting you for food.
Now Javelin freak salaries. Wow, it's gonna happen and so like,
I can only fit three people. You bring 3000
He goes, he rushes on. He doesn't want to know what to do. He wants to tell his wife. Say he says to his wife. Listen, the prophet salaam invited everybody. She says, Well, did you tell him what we have? He said yes. She says the Prophet knows what he's doing.
He knows what he's doing. And that trust is really good. That trust is beautiful. You know, sometimes we freak out. And we show lack of trust to the people around us. And it's sometimes it's an insult. It's offensive. When you when you treat someone as if they're really dumb, when you know that actually they are the people of reason and intelligence. You
It's really it's quite like insulting towards them. It's offensive.
She says, You told him what the food we have is he said yes. She says he knows what he's doing. Like,
I mean, figure it out, the person is not going to make something outrageous. So she wasn't worried. The profit isn't until his job but he says, Listen, don't get the goat out of the oven, keep it in the oven. Don't get the food out of the bakery place, leave it, I'm going to come and bring it President brings the Muslims. And then he takes the stuff out of the
oven, and invites the Muslims one at a time. Come and take your shirt. Come on, take your shirt, come and take your shirt. 3000 take their share. And this is I'm sorry.
3000 take this *. When do miracles happen when you do everything you can when you do everything you can and then Allah subhanaw taala makes things happen.
3000 people eat to their fill.
And juggle says I look at the food. And it's the same.
It's the same.
Like no one is eating from it.
So it was a it was a difficult stage Muslims were actually sort of singing something basic. And that's what we call an Arabic Al Qaeda, or nasheed not like today's nasheed where they have music and men are sort of, you know, Ringling and twisting around and making stuff. It's just very respectful. So the marginal seller would say well Hola Hola. Hola. Hola him to Dina? Well, that was a duck on our la Sol Lena. Had it not been for Allah we wouldn't have been guided.
And we wouldn't have prayed and fasted and given charity for an Zealand Sakina tena Halina with a bit in Africa, India, China or Allah, bring about peace upon us and tranquility. And if we happen to be in a fight, give us firmness make it make us fit.
And the person would repeat after them. And the person would say,
Allah Hamada ha luxury villa for Hamilton Surah Al muhajir. O Allah, there is no true living except the life in the hereafter. So have you mercy upon the MaHA Julian and the answer is very simple this kind of a that the herbs called Ada, you find it in all cultures, we spoke about it previously. It's a very simple kind of melody, very respectful and very
it's not like singing and it doesn't bring about a lot of excitement and emotions and etc.
So the so the Muslims were actually so they were doing this so we're encouraging each other cheering each other up
Yes, so ultimately the Muslims actually get it done. They get the trench done. And
they figured out just as a precaution, the
they don't leave the women at home.
They have in Medina, what they call an album, or upon single is, Autumn is more like a castle small castle, is it's very protected high walls, there's like there's only one entrance. It's very, it's very well fortified. So it's hard really to break into that. So they said just in worst case scenario, we're going to put the women there. So they are not exposed to any kind of clashes.
mostly Medina there were more no men, all of them anywhere outside. We're just where the trench was because the Muslims isn't about only digging the trench, you had to protect it. Because they could jump in, in the trench and climb up and get into Medina. So you had to protect it was it was half the strategy, how the strategy is to make this trench where it's hard to cross over. But it doesn't make it impossible makes it hard. What makes it impossible is that you protect it. You don't allow them if they tried to jump in, you shoot them.
Last that's the strategy. So you had to protect it. So the Muslims had to camp there were some set camps along the northern borders of Medina and he confirmed with Bono arriva that you guys are still going to be true to the agreement. And they said yes. But eventually
those from bonobo they want to burn up or whatever. And they still spoke to them. And they said you need to help us out first they refused. They said no. We have an agreement. And you guys were kicked out of Medina. We don't want to put ourselves in this in this position. We're going to stay true. They still tried with them until they actually got to them. And they agreed to break the Covenant, the agreement, the person I'm used to send
as verbatim that I want to go and check on them every now and then.
porcelain knows that it's possible these people could actually set us up. And this is the only other outlets into Medina or entrance into Medina. So he needs to be careful. And now the Muslims are vulnerable. There's only the women in Medina.
And imagine these people break their covenant, they themselves could attack the Muslims and stab them in the back. So proxim was very concerned about this, who would send as jobelan I want to go and check on them go and check on them. Last times when our own currency says almost in July, seems that they actually broke the agreement.
The prophets I send them sends
to companion side of the mouths, I didn't bother to check on them. And he said, listen, because now this is about psychological warfare, we need to keep our morale high. We can't
give a blow to the Muslims where we they really lose hope. Why? Because if they if people feel that their families are at risk, I mean, they can't deal with it. There's a fret ahead of them, and there is their families behind and they are at risk. What are they going to do? They'll be torn apart. The person doesn't want to put their family Muslims in this situation. So he says saddling them honestly, I don't know about that. He says, I want you to go and speak with them and make sure are they still on the agreement or they broke it? And if they actually broke it don't clearly say that. But you can insinuate again, this is called an Arabic call the terreal.
Okay, you sort of insinuate you don't you imply you don't speak directly? You give me like a pun, and I figure it out.
So perhaps I'm agreed with them. He said,
If you find that they are still true to the agreement, you announced that but if you figure out that they have broken the agreement, you just tell me I will we'll call each other well, Cara. What's OtherWorld? Cara, these are the two tribes who set up the Quran, the Muslims and killed them.
So it's basically betrayal. That's what it means. So sediment goes when suddenly how bad they speak with them. They say whatever the agreement, they say, agreement, what is no agreement? Go out. Go back. We have no agreement with you. That's one.
So they go to the prophets of Salaam and say our goal will our
prophets of salaam realizes what it is. So President gives instructions that the women all of them are in these castles, small castles, they're protected, and he sends some of the elderly ones around to protect. So like I sent them tablets. And now Binaca are gonna send people who will sneak into Medina still they don't know what's going on in Medina. They are not fully aware of the plan of the Prophet sallallahu when he said that they don't know or there's too many Medina or what, what is the messenger Salam up to is still they don't know. So they send a group of people to sneak around in Medina, and they come by one of those castles small castles, where the aunt of the Prophet
sallallahu Sallam Sofia is she's there.
And Hassan bin Talbot was there. So Sofia sees these three people from bento carova One of them sneaks into the castle and he wants to he starts looking around he wants to see who is there and how much protection there is he wants to find out.
Sofia sees him has some tablets that has Sofia it says has some 30 He's He's right there go and deal with him. Samantha but he's not someone who to get into fights. He said I can't do it. I can't do that. So Sofia, she was a very strong woman.
And Sophia is the mother of Abu
Zubaydah. When I won. She made him a strong guy and she was a very tough woman. So she gets a pole, a wooden pole, which is really heavy. She gets it and she waits for this guy as he's climbing up the wall. As soon as he pops his head up, takes she takes it up. She kills him straight away with one blow. She goes down out of the castle. She chops off his head.
Then she throws it where his friends out.
When they see this, they don't know exactly what happened but they think man there is good in our protection there is Muhammad has really left Gods out there we're not going to mess with them. They go back they say you know we don't need to get in trouble. The Medina is very well protected. That's again giving a very strong impression that
now the Muslims are really when Quraysh copper fan arrived and 1000 people they can't camp it to the north of Medina. And Muslims are taking by fear this was a time of extreme cold. And you might say it's a desert. What is cold come from? Well, anyone who lived in Medina was visited Medina you know, sometimes it could get really cold. Really, really cold.
So those, those were called times, those were called times. So the Muslims were really struck by cold weather,
hunger, lack of resources, etc. But they were trying to deal with it.
So when ERATION otter fan come, like, they're confused,
they don't know what that is, they've never seen a trench like this. So it's a new strategy. And that's an advantage for the Muslims now. So they're really, they don't know like, they don't have a counter strategy for this.
It's a new experience. We don't know how to deal with it, though. They're taken by surprise. So they decided to camp around there and then try to work out a way to get into Medina or deal with this situation because they don't know they have no experience with this.
They try to jump in the hit with arrows, arrows, arrows, they withdraw back they don't know what to do try to get to Medina from this side. This side. There's no way to get into Medina. So one of them is called Americana would an older man for his strong soldier has a long history.
He actually he jumps right in the trench, and he challenges the Muslims. It says you're hiding behind all of this come and fight me. Man to man, one to one.
And people don't want to deal with him. This is a very strong man. I'm Robin wood who's going to deal with them.
The one who board was a you know be a polyp.
As aluminum, aluminum McCollum gets to him.
And they fight.
They fight and they cause a lot of dust. So no one sees anything the ones who are describing the situation they say like they got engaged in in the in the fight. And it's just so dusty. They're lost in the dust. We don't know what's happening.
A little while after I don't even know we Talib comes out from the dust from the circle of dust triumphant and the guy was was killed.
So then I leave now with all the calls on the people of Croatia on the Autobahn who wants to fight with me, no one marches forward. Because those, you know, initial fights before any battle really had a lot of significance. So then it goes back, withdraws back, and the Muslims still protect that trench, people will probably try a couple of times to jump in, and Muslims were right on top of it, they were shooting arrows at them to push them back. So they decided to camp and sort of set a seed on the Muslims hoping that someone something would actually let them in as maybe a moment of weakness or maybe through burn or carova they would get in
but still nothing happens. Now, Allah subhanaw taala describes these I mean, this whole situation
where Allah says it's actually was a hard time for for for Muslims. Allah Subhan Allah says, Yeah, you already know I'm on with Corona Mata la la comida addcom Juno dawn for al Sunnah la Emery and would you know the lamb Tala?
What kind of La Motta manana vasila are you who believe remember when
you know soldiers and armies came to you
remember the the bounty and the gift of Allah's mantra upon you when armies came and surrounded, you came to you?
jell o common folk a cool moment as for them income, they came from top from underneath, they basically set a seed around you. So they surrounded you.
What exactly will absorb for Bella what herbal Hannah, whatever no nebula had even an Arabic anyone honors Arabic. There's a beautiful description, this verse so powerful, like it's hard to convey emotions in words. But this verse is extremely intense, exerted outside last month and is when your sights are going around frantically. That describes a state of fear when a person is fearful, doesn't know where the attack is going to come. They look in every direction so frantically without an epsilon, we're Bella Hatena, global 100 and when the hearts have jumped up to the throats, fear, that's the sense of fear.
Well, Bella has an allowable 101 Whatever known a biller have been on and you have thoughts about Allah, you have doubts. I was speaking here about the hypocrites they have doubts about Allah.
Who now they can be truly I mean, when I was it was essentially that there. The believers were truly tested, truly tested. And they were shaking severely. As soon as it was Shalida What is your
model? My wife had an Allahu Allah pseudo Allah, the hypocrites and those who had disease in the heart. They said what Allah Allah and His Prophet promised us, Persia, Sham Yemen, you're gonna be victorious. That's all.
Nonsense. That's what they were saying. Because that's what they felt look 10,000 P
People with 1000 they're eventually going to make it into Medina and we have no chances. So what did what did the hypocrites do? They run out, they left the Muslims. And as you said, the Muslims were hardly having food to eat. These people go to their houses, and they leave the frontline. They leave the Muslims, without permission of the prophets, Allah Allahu Allah Himself without permission. And that is, again, to make the Muslims weaker. They go home and they enjoy their food and they eat and they speak to the others, how happy they are, to be with their families, and you guys are suffering. Imagine this kind of psychological like damage that you're causing to such an army or people are
struggling to survive to protect Medina, they don't have food to eat, you go back home and you're sort of teasing them. You're sort of teasing them.
It's very, I would say very, extremely unethical, extremely unethical. But that's what they did.
With the holographic Ruby emerald on now we're at an Allahu wa rasuluh Illa Allah effetto Minami Allah Allah three Bella Muqaam, Allah confronts you. And they some of them used to say to the believers, you guys leave the your positions, you've got no chances of winning this war.
Don't waste your time is go just go back home protect your family, it's better for you.
This kind of discourse is very discouraging, extremely discouraging. And we're starting off very common on
our tone one I hear every hour you read some of them say to the Prophet when I go back home want to protect our families when a political my wife and my kids because they are exposed because maybe wanna cry they will actually attack them.
And Allah spontaneity you know, Allah saying it's not they're not exposed. The houses are safe. AUD Dona Illa funeral which what they truly want is to run away. That's all they want. They just want to run away.
What are we looking at Allah him in October? Yeah. Tomasulo fitna, Terra Alta y o Mana Tara but what we have is zero. If they were to be asked to leave Islam they would do it because they were not Muslims in the first place. They were just pretending to be Muslims. What about Canada had Allah haven't called La we'll learn about what Canada had to lie in Missoula and they promised Allah that they are not going to turn back on their heads they're not gonna run away
and the Lord's gonna hold them responsible for that promise now first time they're put in to the test now they're running away what kind of adeleye Miss all Apple am Falcon Will Ferrell in phenomenal motivo will continue what will add to my alma
conference ultimate motor will either lead to McDonough Illa kanila say, you know you're running away is not going to protect you from your fate.
If it's written for you to die, you're gonna die. You're gonna die. You know.
The Turkish have a beautiful proverb, I don't know exactly like how it's worded by another translation that is very profound. They say your fate protects you from death.
Your fate protects you from your from death. What does that mean? That means you have an appointed time to leave this world. Before that time, you're not going to die. So your appointment with death, which is your fate, protects you from death protects you from dying before your time. So don't worry about death, it's going to come. And it's a point in time, so don't worry. It's a very profound word by the way. Like, it's really like you're gonna die when the time is right.
So don't waste your thoughts and your and your energy, worrying about when you're gonna die, or that you're gonna die before your turn, you're gonna turn you're gonna die when the time comes. So don't worry about this, it's already decided. So no amount of energy or thinking or worrying will actually change that. So let's say your fate protects you from your from death
means protect you from dying before your time.
So anyway, Allah subhanaw taala talks really exposes the hypocrites at that time. And they left a huge gap among the Muslims.
There were actually there was fighting almost every day like the whole operation of the fan had serious attempts to break into Medina so many times so many times. To the point like one day, the Muslims were fighting right from sunrise to Maghrib time and they had no chance to pray.
Like they're really intensified their attacks trying to break through break into Medina through the trench. Try to find a weak point and enter. So they keep the Muslims engaged for the whole day to the prophet to the day to the point where the Prophet SAW Selim says,
Shall Allah who led him Ebola home neuron Shalu
Onsala tell us the problem says May Allah in our turn their their graves into fires they have kept us busy from praying acid promises and missed acid. When did they pray us up after maghrib
he didn't have time to pray,
because they were trying to break in. And if you couldn't defend, you couldn't take a second,
you can take a break even for a second. So this was the
this was the state of,
of the Muslims at the time.
So there was a lot of there was a lot of fighting around the trench.
so the Muslims were going in and out Medina again, based on instructions of the Prophet salallahu Salam, one of the leaders of the Southside, who was actually dressed up in an armor, obviously, at that time, especially when there's a lot of shooting of arrows. armors were extremely important. Having an armor was extremely important. And this was, but although in on TV, these days, most of the iron armors are actually shown to be only belong to the Europeans. But they weren't actually commonplace. They were everywhere. All nations had the form of the iron or metal armor, where it's hard really to stab someone.
But suddenly, it was wearing an armor that had a defect, it had a gap. And the gap was actually right here, right here between his neck and his shoulders.
So I actually allow Anna being in those castles she sees when they sit down and rather she says I see something a lot, there's a big gap in his armor. And that's really serious, because when you are on the side of the trend, there's a lot of shooting arrows on both sides. So that's really risky.
So she makes that note, but obviously, probably a day or or two after that. Really an arrow hit sad when we're at exactly where that gap is, and he starts bleeding, starts bleeding profusely. They start to stop the bleeding. It won't stop until the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam came, and
the Prophet Salam helps or gets gets the blood to to stop the prophesied and puts him in his
proximity. What you saw what you can
call, it's like a tent that he built for himself where he would run the whole thing. So he puts out the window and there first, then he transferred him to the masjid where the ladies could actually take care of him and nurse and look after his wound up at that time.
The Prophet SAW Selim sees the situation gets its intensifies, is getting one week, second week, third week, it's getting really bleak for the Muslims. It's really hard. How are they familiar man says Wallahi it's hard for us to go and, you know, just find a way to defecate, we couldn't go and answer the call of nature. One wants someone wants to go to the washroom. We couldn't go to the washroom we took we were too scared. We were too scared because there was always a possibility of someone sneaking into Medina through Managua.
There's always so is a state of extreme danger. The province of sudden thinks of something so he sent someone to speak with a lot of fun.
Speak up when the President says let me see I mean, these are 10,000 people if we can break them apart, we might be able to deal with them. So the Prophet Salam sent someone to speak what about the leader of say, Mohammed wants to see if there is something you want that he could actually give it to your where you would just actually withdraw from here and leave polish.
So often take the offer they say yes. So negotiation start between the Prophet SAW Allah himself
and the leader of the Prophet SAW Selim offers them he says, What do you want? What would you like they said, We want half of the harvest of Medina dates. We want half of the harvest of Medina of the dates of Medina.
Medina was the richest place and dates
and other fun they didn't have a lot of dated palm trees. They would get their dates for Medina they would pay for it.
So the Prophet SAW Selim says, first they asked for two thirds. The problem says two thirds is too much. They so they negotiate until it reaches half the prophets of salaam says from my side. I agree to give you this but I don't have the final word. Medina belongs to the people of Medina, the unsought I have to speak
To set the minimum and sediment Oba problem used to call them a super old tools sudden the two sides and sides road both of them.
He said I have to take their permission, say fine, take their permission the problem speaks with them. He says this is the case. What do you guys think?
they say almost in Java is it something from Allah subhanaw taala a revelation that Allah from Allah gave you and he said that's how you deal with them.
He said No, it's just an opinion that I saw are like in the array to the alibaba.com because in Wahida thorough to honestly farm and I saw the Arabs have gathered against you. I wanted to send some of them back so we could probably do with the rest.
They said yeah Rasul Allah,
Allah Hema can we automatically
fee Tamala 10 Min temporarily, Medina il Tierra,
de la Messenger of Allah, Allah they never dreamed of having one of the dates of Medina, excepts when they come to our houses and we offer them something as hosts or they pay for it.
To follow what happened as an Allah Who Islam, I found out that the NI Fe D in Allah has given us honor through Islam. Now when we become Muslims, we give it to them for free. Now Allah Allah, no, we're not gonna give it to them.
For some set, it's your it's your call, you guys do it. It's a no win, I'm gonna do it.
A person respects that.
So the prophets of salaam sends to the leader of Ottawa. He says, people of Medina don't agree to this, forget about that.
Forget about that. And he cancels the whole negotiation.
Again, that shows how the prophets of salaam would respect his followers.
He could have just made a, you know, say made a decision and say, Listen, this is my decision. They won't say no, they want. If the Prophet said, That's my decision, do it, they will do it.
And that shows what a good leader is. Got a good leader doesn't confiscate your decision. Although some people think that's what a good leadership is. No. If you confiscate decision, you lose trust, you lose the trust, you need to get the people involved. You need to get them involved. You can't. That's what good leadership is. That's why Allah Subhan Allah says to the proximal Shall we will humble So the Prophet and respects that Medina doesn't belong to him. It belongs to the people of,
of Medina, the unsolved although now he's, he's living in Medina, he still acknowledges that you it's your city, and we still guests here. We're not going to make a decision on your behalf. So approximately gives it to them. And they say a word the Prophet Salam doesn't blame them. It is saying, you guys, you know, he'd made a bad decision and say, you should have listened to me. I told you, you see no made decision, I'm going to back you all the way. I'm going to bet you
he doesn't take it personally. That's beautiful. So the Prophet Salam takes their opinion he cancels all of this kind of discussion with these people. And that's it.
And still the Muslims are in a state of hardship so for about four weeks the Muslims really are going through so much hardship and
and again, we said the hazard is everywhere it's outside and from inside, but no carova are actually conspiring the trying to get n maybe get some people to sneak in the Muslims had to watch on all sides was extremely difficult. The toner part, the retention is in every direction. And it was such a difficult time for the prophets of Salaam and his companions. So we said a few times they were really fierce attacks on the trench trying trying to break into sometimes the Muslims missed the prayers during the day.
The prophets of salaam resorts to
the prophets, Allah Salam resorts to do
about four weeks later, Allah Subhan Allah sends extreme like, strong wind. So he said, the weather is cold, there is wind, it's extremely dark. And fear has reached a peak with the Muslims. And the people of Quraysh people have got off on each one has a different goal. Each one had a different objective from this world. So what often came because they want dates and they want finances and they won economic dominance while he came for
Good want to wipe out Muhammad and his companions, more mainly political. And each tribe and small tribe, they had their own thing. So they were not upon one.
They weren't on the same page. But they were getting uneasy, like they thought they wanted, they were going to take out the Muslims in no time. Now, it's been four weeks and they're sitting there and they're not doing anything. It's a few of them are actually engaging in the fight on the front line. But for the most part, they're just sitting there and doing nothing. And that's the worst you could do for an army. You know, people in the military, they know you have to keep the people active. They say you're rushed to me, your muscles, your skills, everything, your morale rusts if you stay still, and that's why armies wherever they are, they have regiments, they keep active, they
keep themselves in a state of war, they change them, they challenge themselves, they have these drills on a daily basis, because if you don't challenge yourself, your skills are gonna go down, and so on and so forth. So they were getting uneasy being for four weeks, they're
you know, and
not having a proper access into Medina.
And the wizard just said, the prophet Salam was still making dua, the Muslims were being obedient to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And then something really happens that changes the whole course of events. And
so at some point, some about five soldiers of Quraysh manage actually to break into Medina, five of them on horses. Among them is recreation of an OBGYN and four and three hours or four others they managed to cross the trench and get right into into Medina where the Muslims are. And really this huge fight starts by the Muslims fight fiercely until they had to withdraw and run away three of them were killed and two managed to escape and go back to the size of of Polish
now one person from a lot of fun, I'm just looking for his name.
Anyway, so until I remember his name, so this person from auto fun, Allah subhanaw taala at that moment during the siege Allah guides into Islam.
Allah guides into Islam if anyone remembers his name anyone knows let me know something Mr. Wood.
He comes he sneaks into Medina.
He makes it to the Prophet Solomon he says yellow Salalah a shadow under lotion Hello.
Now Allah is answering the door of the Prophet SAW Selim because the problem was seeking help. This is where the problem says Allahumma
has had his moments of not allowing him. So the so this man comes to the Prophet SAW Salem.
And he says, I think you might be missing a lot of money. But anyway, he comes he says Dr. Salah I'm not really I'm a Muslim. Now, no one knows about this, but more neaby mash it, command me with whatever you want. Command me with whatever you want. This man was in was the connection between Otto fan and Benoit arriva. He was friends with binocular. They had business deals with Velo Colima, and he was very close to the leader of Otto fan.
So he says he also Lamoni Russia the process and says
Huntsville Anna, we must turn them away from us with whatever you can.
It says yalla Sula, enquanto Fereldan in the atatiana, Hola, Cheyenne. If I if I'm going to do this, I might need to say something.
And look at the beautiful way. He doesn't speak directly the proxy and figures it out. He says basically obscenity of Allah, I will need to speak bad about you
in order to convince them right to show that I really hate you and what I'm doing is actually against you because he has a plan in mind.
The province ism says, Say whatever you want, say what you want.
So the man goes to binocular yoga. And he says he goes to them, he knows the leaders. He's very well connected to them. He says you guys are stupid. See what I'm paraphrasing by the way, I'm just gonna put it in context to show the human basically the gist of what he did. It says you guys
had an agree
Mr. Mohammed now you broke it right? Up Irfan is not from Medina, they don't live in Medina Quraysh, they don't live in Medina, Manu salaam, they don't live in Medina, all these smaller ones, they don't live in Medina.
They can't make it into Medina, they're gonna get bored, then each one, they will go home, you're stuck with Muhammad and Medina,
you have no home to go to. Now, they're gonna leave you alone, because really, they don't care about you. They're just using you, they don't care about you. They're going to go back home, each one's going to go back to their city, go back home, and you will be stuck with Muhammad and you guys can't fight Muhammad.
They realize this as well. Like, whenever we've never seen this coming, he said, Yes. He said, What do you recommend, he says, the best way for you guys to do that is you send to Quraysh. An auto fan, you tell them, we don't trust you guys, huge because you're gonna go back home and leave us and we'll be stuck with Muhammad. And we'll be the only ones in his face. So we want to guarantee that you guys are going to stay with us till the end.
And this guarantee is that you bring us three, two or three of your leaders. Mainly it is and they join, they join forces with us. So they base themselves in our territory.
We're not taking captives, but they this is where they base themselves. So they position themselves in this war here with us. So at least we know you guys with us all the way till the end, you're not going to leave your leaders, right.
So this last video, good idea.
So he says, Okay, you guys go ahead and do it. And he goes, and he sneaks to polish. He speaks to polish and they say, You guys think binocular lag is gonna really stand with you. They actually thought it over, they thought again, you know, when they actually regretting that they broke the Covenant. Now, Amy, Ben must odaka Funny. The man this guy's called name oh, no muss, odorata funny. So
he goes to college, and he says Bhanu carova Really feel regret that they broke the covenant with Muhammad because they made their calculations again, it doesn't work out for them. So now, they sent to Mohammed, they said, We want to go back to the agreement.
Want to enact the agreement again, but Muhammad said, I don't trust you. They said, Okay, we will send you a proof. And the proof is we're going to get you the leaders two or three of the leaders of kurush, I'm going to hand them to you and you can kill them.
James Bond of that.
So he goes to a lot of fun scene. So he goes to them. He says, Listen, binocular, Ava are having agreement again with Muhammad. And they're going to prove their loyalty, this time by asking for two or three of your leaders. They will say we want them just to be there. But they're going to take them give them to Mohamed so he can kill them.
Everyone is suspicious. No one knows what's going on. But so by no quality loss center Corporation, they send Dubai to help have fun. And they tell them, Listen, we don't trust you guys are gonna go home and leave us with Muhammad, we can't deal with him alone. We'll be left with him. We don't have any other place to go to. So you guys, we want some of your leaders to position them within our area.
So the people who can say aha, that's it. You guys are setting us up. Right? Same with a lot of fun. What does this do? This breaks the bonds, it breaks the trust among them. So they feel there is okay there is deception, or there's treachery people are being treacherous. There's betrayal going on around right. So every one is having doubt. And if you manage to put doubt in any group of people, by the way, you destroy it. Put doubt between a husband and wife you destroy that marriage.
Because we see what we think, by the way,
we see what we think. And that's why Allah subhanaw taala says in about above veneer.
Some suspicion, some thoughts you have about people our sin. Because if you have an evil thought about someone, you actually begin to interpret what they do based on what you think.
That's the problem. You won't be seeing reality, you will be seeing your own reality that's influenced by your doubt.
So you want to break a marriage, bring it out, put doubt in the heart of the wife or the husband and see what happens. Break that marriage. You want to break a group put doubt.
Put doubt among them and see what happens. And by the way, that's what the news does today.
That's what the news does. They tell you this country did this. There is no government
Then that's it, and then then apologize in small print about mistake, right. But that's it, they've, they've planted the doubt. That's the point. So what he did, it actually was a very intelligent thing. So he put doubt among them. And they're starting to doubt. So it's having having dealt with a lot of fun with General carova. People are getting uneasy now. Then, at some point, Allah subhanaw taala finalizes this whole thing. So Muslims have done everything they could, and probably would have made the Muslims stay true hypocrites who are actually eating of the Muslims from inside, we can take them from inside,
then we have no I mean, pretty much a lot of money, he comes out and does a really great job.
To help out the Muslims. And you see, you know, sometimes you'll oftentimes want to figure everything out before we start on a journey. But the way life works is really you need to get started, you need to get started and things start to fall into place. If you want to figure out everything beforehand is not going to work. There are so many things you won't see they're just behind the hill, unless you climb the hill, you won't be able to see them. So this is why really pretty much a lot of most of the project most of personal endeavors or anything you want to do, there actually, it's a leap of a leap in faith. There's a leap of faith in it, you have to trust
blindly, truly, you have to somehow, somehow there are calculated risks. But at the end of the day, life requires you to take risks and jump into the unknown. Because you can't figure out everything from the outset. These are I mean, the small, it's the minority of situations where you can do this, most of the time in life, you will have to jump in the unknown, you have to have a leap of faith, in order for you then to start things are going to start falling into place
at the right people in marriage, and say I want to know everything about this person. I mean, you can't know everything. Even if you get married to a person for 30 years, you can't know everything about them. So is there a risk in marriage? There is. But there is like there's a basic level of you know, assessing whether that person is good for you or not. But is there a risk in every marriage, there is our marriage without risk? I mean, good luck. There's nothing like that. There's nothing there's always a risk. I mean, we don't even know ourselves, let alone knowing other people, by the way, we behave in ways sometimes that we surprise ourselves. We surprise ourselves. And really, I
mean, research shows that we are very bad at knowing ourselves. By the way, predicting ourselves, we're very bad. We really our knowledge of ourselves is extremely biased on both sides negative and positive. We overestimate what we have and we underestimate what we have. So we're very biased.
So anyway, so the
so the Muslims did everything they could and they put their trust in Allah subhanaw taala. That's when miracles start to happen. Really, that's when miracles start to happen. This is when the magic starts to show itself. Allah is going to make things happen and the Prophet services in the Hadith, in Allah either on either sheet and he Sperber who, oftentimes we think we are the causal force in this world, we think
we overestimate our influence, by the way on our control over reality, but we don't realize it's actually it's what Allah brings about. Honestly, most of the time, it's what Allah subhanaw taala brings about.
So, when we do what we what we what we have to do, and we do everything we can, then Allah subhanaw taala facilitates things. So in Allah, either Allah the chi and here as well, when Allah when something happens, Allah paves the way for it. Allah makes things happen for that to materialize. That's how Allah works in the world.
So Allah sends extremely, very strong wind, extreme cold weather, confusion, and things start to light up. How as we're going to find out sha Allah.
Not next week,
two weeks from now inshallah next week we're going to have a guest in sha Allah to give the helluva two weeks from now inshallah we will carry on. So, we have some time for questions.
We can take some questions, any questions?
Yes. So you mentioned that
a curse the people because he couldn't pray God.
Now he said, may Allah fill the Greaves with fire, because they kept us busy from salata, Lhasa. Now that was the team that was at the time. He probably pray a lot, but he
So he couldn't pray so all the way from Lahontan Maghrib there was no he couldn't pray us out
