Okay

00:00:19--> 00:00:19

Thank you

00:00:24--> 00:00:32

Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah while he was behind the woman Wada.

00:00:41--> 00:00:54

So we said the Muslims took over Makkah, mainly peacefully, there was no proper fighting taking place at hamdulillah there was a couple of skirmishes we said took place

00:00:56--> 00:01:06

in the south of Mecca, where Khalid bin Walid was actually leading part of the Muslim army. And he faced some resistance, so he had to deal with them. And it was, it was minimal.

00:01:08--> 00:01:17

And we mentioned things how the Prophet saw them to cover now how they took over Maccha how they cleared the cabin domestically, Helen from the SNAM

00:01:19--> 00:01:31

and they removed us Nam and the cleared the camera from inside as well. And then the Prophet salallahu Salam, how some of the people of Makkah became Muslim and how they give the br to the Prophet so then Hawaii, forgive them and set them free.

00:01:33--> 00:01:33

And

00:01:37--> 00:01:43

we said the problem finally gave them hooked by he gave them a speech. So he gathered all of the people in Makkah, and

00:01:44--> 00:01:53

he spoke to them and there were profound, really profound meanings. It wasn't a short, not necessarily a short Hotbot speech. And there's a lot of

00:01:55--> 00:02:00

like principles that the prophets of Allah when he was salam established,

00:02:02--> 00:02:06

a lot of them about or about the sanctity of Maccha. And

00:02:09--> 00:02:19

clarifying what was haram in Islam. So the Prophet, Allah mentioned that riba was haram, Zina was haram, and eating pork was haram.

00:02:21--> 00:02:40

And then the proscenium declared that everything in J Li and I was replaced by Islam. So the rule of J Aliah has been abrogated now it's been removed, and Islam will take over Islam will take over. Some scholars, by the way, mentioned something that's very important really to understand. Some people are very

00:02:43--> 00:02:50

polarized in their thinking, very polarized in their thinking. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:02:54--> 00:02:57

did not remove everything that was in a jar Helia.

00:02:59--> 00:03:06

So the good things that were in a jar here, the Prophet SAW, Selim approved them. And that's what Islam does.

00:03:07--> 00:03:22

Wherever Islam goes, the good things that it finds in a society or in a nation within a culture, Islam approves of them, and they automatically become part of Islam, because this is common grounds, this common grounds

00:03:23--> 00:03:40

and I find it appalling that sometimes that was maybe 15 years ago, I remember. People say, you know, I don't observe the like the traffic lights, I don't abide by the traffic lights. Like if it's red, I'm gonna cross it.

00:03:41--> 00:03:48

Why? Because it's not from the rule of Allah subhanaw taala it's from the rules of the unbelievers.

00:03:49--> 00:03:51

Honestly, this is pathetic.

00:03:52--> 00:04:08

There's no like, there's no better way to describe this is pathetic. Now, when there is a system for organ defined in the Quran, and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, how to organize traffic, define that.

00:04:10--> 00:04:18

So one way that Islam actually rules is by laying down the principles and allowing people to figure out

00:04:19--> 00:04:23

allowing people to figure out the details, the details.

00:04:24--> 00:04:31

So when people say like, I don't, I'm not gonna I'm not going to abide by again the like the traffic rules.

00:04:33--> 00:04:36

Why? Because it's not part of Islam, who told you

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

who told you if this system is put in the best way humanly possible, or humans have done their best to come up with that rule, which are that system, which basically saves lives and guarantees some level of justice between commuters and you know, drivers and so on and so forth. Then if it

00:05:00--> 00:05:47

reaches the the highest level of, of, as we say, justice among the drivers and the commuters, and safety guarantees safety and order and organization, then absolutely, this is something that automatically becomes part of Islam, to abide by that. Why because if you go against that you jeopardize your life and other people's lives and their property. And you bring about chaos and lack of organization, which obviously has a lot of, you know, consequences. So, again, we should not be polarized, we should not be polarized. So, Islam wherever it goes, you will find in every culture, some remains of fitrah and intellect, where people use their intellect for something beneficial, as

00:05:47--> 00:05:49

long as it's not in opposition with Islam,

00:05:51--> 00:06:17

then automatically becomes part of Islam. If it applies with the rules of Islam, that automatically becomes an extension of the Islamic system. So this kind of polarization is not good. So the prophets, Allah Salam, when he came to Makkah, you can see that the prophets have them approved so many things that that people in Makkah, and Mecca had. So the problem says Kulu helfen, Kenneth J. Helia. Let me as a dual Islam or Illa should Dutton problem says there is no treaty.

00:06:19--> 00:06:27

Basically, the Arabs had something. And it was it was a trend that stopped was touted by some people. It's called the Health Health is moreoveron.

00:06:28--> 00:06:29

Convention,

00:06:30--> 00:06:32

like the Geneva Conventions.

00:06:34--> 00:06:39

So some of the conventions that were initiated in Mecca previously before Islam

00:06:40--> 00:06:46

was to help strangers and people who had no support get their rights.

00:06:47--> 00:06:58

Because handymen they used to do certain jobs for some of the rich people in Matka, and those rich people in Macau, due to their high status, they would abuse that status, and refuse to pay people, these people that use,

00:06:59--> 00:07:41

they would refuse to pay these dues. And this person, he has no power to contend with that high status person who has a huge tribe, and a lot of a lot of his family members are bullies. So he's not going to mess with him. He says, Give me my money says, I don't owe you anything leave, he has no other choice but to leave. They had no support. So some of them thought, No, we should actually protect strangers and people who have no support, and we should support them to get the rights. So anyone who's oppressed in Mecca can come to us. And we are going to help them and use our own status to help them and get the rights from their oppressors. The province of Islam is confirming this. So

00:07:41--> 00:07:54

this was from January, this was a rule of India. And we say on and as part of our of Islam. No. So this kind of again, polarized approach to things by the way, he's not healthy is not Islamic. And shows by the way, lack of

00:07:57--> 00:08:00

lack of sanity, really lack of sanity.

00:08:01--> 00:08:02

Why? Because

00:08:04--> 00:08:15

the person who says something like this, absolutely, they don't know what they're talking about. So you will find Islam as it moved to other areas like Islam, when it moved to Egypt, when it moved to,

00:08:17--> 00:08:21

to the to Asia itself. I mean, look at the sub Indian continent,

00:08:22--> 00:09:05

they have a lot of their own traditions, in terms of their, you know, dress code, in terms of the taste, some traditions, some of their traditions are taken from Hinduism, okay, which obviously, those that have paganistic you know, origins to them, or they go against Islam, these ones we don't agree with them. But a great part of what the Indians had in general, the Muslims, they maintained a great deal of their of their culture, which was good and was in line with Islam and the companions of the Prophet Salam did not request them to change that. Again, when you travel, for example, to Malaysia, Indonesia, you're gonna find they have their own culture. Yes, I mean, with every culture,

00:09:05--> 00:09:19

there are things that are against Islam, but we're talking about, there's a huge number of things in their culture, elements in their culture, that are actually specific to them. But they are not in contradiction to Islam. So they were approved and they were accepted, and they were allowed.

00:09:20--> 00:09:37

They were allowed. So again, some people think that Islam is wherever it goes, it has to take over and change everything completely. That doesn't happen. It just doesn't happen. Look how the prophets of salaam came to the Arabs. There are certain things he disapproved of, and there are certain things he approved of.

00:09:39--> 00:09:48

So for example, the prophet Islam, what was the prophet Salam wearing? Was it different than what correct what Abuja hell used to wear? It's the same kind of attire.

00:09:49--> 00:09:51

Apart from certain in our parameters.

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

He didn't come up with a new style a different style is make up our own style. No, salon didn't do that. So again,

00:10:00--> 00:10:27

Wherever Islam arrives or wherever Muslims arrive, they're supposed to have a differentiated a nuanced approach to the local culture. So if there is elements of justice, and nobility in that culture, we embrace those why? Cuz they are identical to what we have in Islam. So we don't have to establish them, they're already established. So we can definitely blend into these elements. And we can utilize them without a problem.

00:10:28--> 00:10:53

And we should not have this kind of a set of polarized approach to things. Oh, no, no, no. Like, say there's a system that has justice has organizations really beautiful a lot of work has been done in putting this maybe decades or centuries of work have been put to come up with a system like this, then we say no, it came from the non Muslims write it off. That's not That's not you know, when the Muslims

00:10:54--> 00:11:20

took over Persia, the Muslims learnt a lot from the Persians, a lot. The Persians were a very powerful civilization, especially in terms of governance. They had the Dawa, when they had the archives and the, you know, records, keep records of everything, everything was duck pipe, while we call today, paperwork was already there, specifically in the Persian Empire, they kept records of everything, everything was documented.

00:11:22--> 00:12:02

When the Muslims, you know, came across the Persians, they took that then you say, Oh, it was done by the Persians. kofod non Muslims forget about that. It's not from Islam, otherwise they wouldn't grow, or the Muslims, any culture they came in touch with. They learned from them what was in line with Islam, and they utilized it. And that's the statement sometimes it's attributed to the prophets of Salaam, Allah there's debate whether it's from the words of the Prophet salaam, or some of his companions, it's basically says Ulfric metallbau lateral movement. And now the other half have cobia that hikma wisdom, anything that is beneficial any idea any thought any system anything that is

00:12:02--> 00:12:32

actually wise and beneficial and good? Innately good? intrinsically good. Then it is like the last property of the believer believer has more right to it. The believer has more right to and this opens the world before us opens the world before us. And it shows that there are things in Islam called by the way this whole effect of there's something called a masala and Marcella. So masala and masala open benefits, open benefits. Things come up like when computers came up.

00:12:35--> 00:12:44

Oh, okay. They were they were invented by what by the Westerners by the non Muslims leave them this is not from Islam has nothing to do with Islam. No.

00:12:46--> 00:12:48

This is a tool, and it has neutral

00:12:50--> 00:12:54

moral value, like it's not good or bad. It's just a tool.

00:12:55--> 00:13:02

beneficial tool, very helpful tool. Now how you use it, obviously decides whether it's good or bad.

00:13:03--> 00:13:31

So again, so Muslims, that's masala has an open benefits, anything any new idea that you come up with, as long as it's ethical. In principle, there's not like there's nothing wrong with it morally, ethically. And it's not against any of the principles of Islam, automatically, it becomes your last property and look at the beautiful analogy the Prophet, I'm getting lost property, what is that means? It's yours. And you lost it. When you find that you have more right to it.

00:13:32--> 00:14:17

Like imagine you lost a say a book, a very important book, or maybe you're somebody some people write the like the make a daily journal of their activities or their thoughts or whatever. Imagine you lost it on the end, you found it with someone and you look at it, and that's that's mine. They say, Oh, no, he's got it. Now. It's his. I have nothing to do with that. You don't say that? It has mine. Give it back to me. How did you get it? Right? It's yours. And that's what every benefit everything that is beneficial apps out there. If we can put it to good use, it automatically becomes ours. It becomes ours. So the prophets I seldom displayed that clearly and in fact,

00:14:19--> 00:14:38

and then the prophets of salaam clarified some principles. He says lead author by default, there is no migration to Medina after Makkah has been opened Plus, your dual Muslim in our hidden elements. One, the believers support one another against their enemy. There's an enemy Muslim stand by one another because they have this brotherhood of faith.

00:14:40--> 00:14:42

Then the prophets is clarified certain,

00:14:44--> 00:14:45

certain rulings.

00:14:47--> 00:15:00

The Prophet Salam stays in Makkah for 19 days. And we said he his house, and the house of the Prophet Salam, by the way was previously the house of ash Khadija

00:15:00--> 00:15:18

Probably hola hola Anna. That was the house of the problem when she passed away. The problem inherited the house was his. But when the problem was in Medina it was the cousin of the Prophet salallahu Salam he sold it because the house was deserted. There was no one living in it for some time. So they

00:15:19--> 00:15:46

found it was sitting there. No one was making use of it. So he sold it someone bought it so the one of the comparisons to the problem. Are you going to stay in your in your in your house in your home? He said we'll help her cannon it Romain Manziel our teen has not left anything for us he sold everything off. So the profit center What did he stay he stayed in life which is we send close very close to Mina.

00:15:48--> 00:16:03

Outside right out, it's now obviously within the city of Macau, but at the time was just outside of of Macau where we send the Muslims set a camp for themselves. So for 19 days, the Prophet said I'm staying there. And he would shorten his prayers but not combine them.

00:16:04--> 00:16:10

Bro salaam would shorten the prayers but not combine them. So he made Kasara but not Gemma.

00:16:11--> 00:16:41

Okay? So that shows that you can make paths or you can shorten your prayers if you're traveling even if it's more than three days. Right? Because some of the art say no, it's only three days, you have a limit of three days beyond three days, you cannot shorten your prayers. Now the problem for 19 days he was in Mecca, he was shortening his prayers. And it shows us well if a traveler is going to stay in his temporary destination for a while, let's say you travel to New York for

00:16:42--> 00:17:10

for for a month to visit family or relatives or for work. So you're going to settle for a short time, therefore for about a month. So it's better to shorten but not combined, you still have the option to combine. It's available to you, you can use it. But it shows from the practice of the prophets of salaam that when he settled in Mecca for 19 days. Okay, he did not combine the prayers he would pray the prayers on their own respective times.

00:17:14--> 00:17:30

The prophets of salaam then made an announcement in Makkah, anyone who believes in Allah on the last day, they should not leave an idol in their house Sonam statue in their house, except that they break it. Then the Prophet Solomon started to send around certain military expeditions around because now

00:17:31--> 00:17:34

it's good to put the conquest of Mecca in perspective, by the way.

00:17:36--> 00:18:02

Mecca, we said was the center of the Arabian Peninsula, politically, religiously, financially, even in terms of the tribal system, everyone looked up to Quraysh and the people of Quraysh. And there were many generations from companions who later on became Muslim. They said the Arabs were just lying in wait, observing what was going to happen between Mohammed Salah Salem and Quraysh.

00:18:04--> 00:18:43

Really, so are the Arabs were considering Islam. But due to the fact that Mohamed Salah Salem was resisted by Kurdish people could not do away with the status of Kurdish. So they thought of Kurdish takes over. We don't have to deal with Muhammad, we don't have to, we can ignore him altogether. But if Mohammed takes over, then that's a sign that he is supported by Allah. He's and he's upon the truth. So when the prophets of salaam took over Mecca, that means mainly most of the Arabian Peninsula automatically decided to become Muslim. Automatically. Makkah becomes Muslim, everyone's going to become Muslim. And that shows again, the importance of,

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

of leadership, the importance of leadership, because and the Prophet SAW Selim, if you guys remember when the Prophet Salam went to a bar if did he start approaching random people in the streets and tell them about Islam?

00:19:00--> 00:19:02

No, who did he approach?

00:19:03--> 00:19:04

Who did you approach

00:19:05--> 00:19:09

the leaders, the leaders of a thought of the three brothers,

00:19:10--> 00:19:11

the children of Abdullah Ali,

00:19:13--> 00:19:21

he approached the leaders. Why because if the leaders accept the message, then everyone else is going to follow suit.

00:19:22--> 00:19:27

And, again, when you come to a political entity or country, a nation

00:19:28--> 00:19:40

or a community and you start approaching people randomly, by the way, that's that will be looked upon, that will be frowned upon, it will not be seen as appropriate.

00:19:41--> 00:19:47

You just go on behind the leaders backs trying to do something or say something.

00:19:49--> 00:19:54

So, if we look at Malaysia, for example, I was confused but

00:19:55--> 00:19:57

in Malaysia there was this kind of

00:20:00--> 00:20:24

And there was like a building a historical building. And it's mentioned something about the history of Malaysia. And it mentions how Malaysia became Muslim. And it was basically the king or the ruler of Malaysia, which was number of tribes and, and provinces. But they had a king and the king, I think there were Hindus or something like that. And,

00:20:26--> 00:20:33

or Buddhist, so. And then he came to know about Islam, and he liked it.

00:20:34--> 00:20:36

He liked Islam, and he decided to become Muslim.

00:20:37--> 00:20:42

And thus, he tells everyone, from now on, we Muslim, everyone becomes

00:20:44--> 00:21:06

ready. So you find, for example, in Malaysia, Muslims, I think that 65 to 70% of the population. But you're gonna find the Malay, the ethnicity, Malay, I think 100% Muslim, I think, if not just close to 100%, who are the non Muslims?

00:21:07--> 00:21:12

They're actually Chinese, were brought by the British, into the,

00:21:14--> 00:21:23

into Malaysia, and other ethnicities as well. The you have the Tamil who came from, I think, from India, right? They came into Malaysia. So

00:21:24--> 00:22:06

a whole country with all of the population, almost all the population become Muslim. Why? Because of the leaders. So this is again, recognition of how human dynamics work, how human dynamics work. So when we understand that we can work along these lines. It's important in Dawa, and in telling people about Islam to really sort of take in mind, human dynamics, it's good to understand the humanities, by the way, they are extremely helpful. They're very powerful tools, and it's good to understand them. You should because you can't expect humans to behave in a way that's not human. They're not going to do this, even if you are upon the truth. Don't expect miracles to happen.

00:22:07--> 00:22:11

So the prophets of salaam see, obviously, I mean, observe this.

00:22:12--> 00:22:50

So people in the Arabian Peninsula, they followed the example of Christ they thought, Okay, since Muhammad took over him, okay, is his now and people of Croatia have become Muslim. You know, all of almost all of the leaders have become Muslim Now, although with a lot of hesitation, but then people just decided to come into STEM we're going to talk about this one, how the tribes are going to start sending you know, representatives to take the bait from the prophets of Allah and even send them the Prophet himself since harlot have been worried to go and destroy a loser and there is the one who was one of the greatest you know, idols among among the Arabs

00:22:55--> 00:23:14

So, ultimately, like finally he destroys it. He says Amazon asked to destroy swap was another of their gods as well was destroyed outside Omaka then the prophets of salaam since the Prophet SAW Salem to Benny Jemima. There's an important actually incident.

00:23:15--> 00:23:17

So Ben oedema, they lived

00:23:19--> 00:23:20

to the south of Makkah.

00:23:24--> 00:23:54

And when they heard about the conquest of Makkah, automatically, they decided to become Muslim, but they don't know what Islam is. All they know about Muslims is that Muslims are Serbians, Serbia, because what Sabines means like apostates, one of the one of its meanings is apostates. Why? Because always used to call the Muslims sabia that they are apostates that apostate from the religion of Ibrahim. So they were the outcast they were the Renegades.

00:24:01--> 00:24:03

So the Prophet saw some sense Khalid when we need

00:24:05--> 00:24:18

to go and invite them to Islam but they will already decided they already decided to become Muslim and they clueless they don't know really any details about Islam. So how long will it goes to them and he's he's got with him 350

00:24:20--> 00:24:22

of the companions like soldiers

00:24:23--> 00:24:59

from marjorine and sorbitol saline. And when he goes to them, he approaches them and they already knew somebody told him how long it was coming he is from the Prophet SAW Salem. So they decided to give him a very warm welcome. So they get out of their like town and they go outside and they sort of design some kind of a welcome and they're welcome was they would carry their swords with them and the weapons with them just to show that hey, we welcome you and we can protect you from any any kind of threats. And by the way, many of the Arabs like when they for example,

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

In

00:25:02--> 00:25:06

the process of Solomon he came into when he came to Medina hula, he stayed first in

00:25:08--> 00:25:33

Cuba for 14 days right before moving into Medina. When he decided to move in Medina, the unsalted came with their weapons in order to escort the prophets of salaam into Medina. These people were doing the same. So they wanted to welcome family outside of the town and escort him into the the town. When Khalid saw that he invited them to Islam, he said, basically, he just

00:25:37--> 00:25:41

he said, I invite you to Islam, what did they say? They said, Saba, Anna, we apostate it.

00:25:42--> 00:25:58

They wanted to say we become Muslim, but they don't they don't know the terminology. So they said, We apostate it. And how long are they looking at their weapons and their state? He thought these people are very defiant. They're saying no, we're not going to become Muslim. So what do you do, he attacks them?

00:25:59--> 00:26:01

Literally, he attacks them. And he kills many of them.

00:26:03--> 00:26:04

Many of them were killed.

00:26:06--> 00:26:08

And then they captured the rest of them.

00:26:12--> 00:26:13

And

00:26:14--> 00:26:44

Hungary, it still considers the like, he was still surprised how defiant. They were. He thought they weren't like, although they saw that the Muslims already took over Maccha and he invited them to Islam, but they rejected and he still seems that he couldn't really process it well. So he thought these people are very defined, I think we shouldn't give them a chance. So he commanded the Muslims anyone, because obviously when they took the captives, each Muslim was supposed to watch over a captive.

00:26:46--> 00:27:08

So every Muslim was appointed to a captive to watch over them. Hello, lead says I find these people to be very defined, who don't have time to hold captives and deal with them and with all the you know the hard work that comes with that. And these people are very defined. And still they say suburbanite still say we apostate. So you say hello Malik gives a command. Kill them,

00:27:09--> 00:27:10

all of them.

00:27:12--> 00:27:20

So the ones from Benu, Benu Solane. They actually killed their captors. The Maha Jurriaan the answer? They say no.

00:27:22--> 00:27:37

We can't kill captives. How would you explain to them that these people are defined? I mean, they're not Muslim. And there are a huge burden and we are in a position we have to move back and forth to Mecca and outside of Mecca. We don't We can't deal with them. It should not until we meet the Prophet sorcerer.

00:27:38--> 00:28:14

So they go to the prophets of Salaam and they tell him what happened. The Prophet Salam realized the mistake of Carignan will lead to misunderstanding. And that shows there's no one who's perfect 100 was like at the EPA term of, of military leadership. He was in general, the best probably in history in the Muslim history, but shows us well there's no human being that is complete and perfect. So he had it seemed the he had this weakness of not assessing the situation properly, not having a good good judgment of the situation. So when the problem was told about that, he raised his hand he said Allahumma inni abre we recommend Masaharu it

00:28:16--> 00:28:26

he says Oh Allah, I have nothing to do. I have nothing to do with what Khaled did. person got very upset, very angry

00:28:27--> 00:28:28

with highly demanded worried

00:28:30--> 00:28:30

so

00:28:32--> 00:28:34

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:28:38--> 00:28:44

Pease the blood money of all of the ones who were killed from Benu J Lima, all of them

00:28:45--> 00:28:57

and he makes peace with their families. And he makes you apologies that it was all a mistake was all the mistake of Hollywood some of the companions used to actually no blame has been read for a long time after that.

00:28:58--> 00:29:36

Really, they give called you need hard time Abdul Rahman been out for example. He would actually have arguments with Colin read about this, why did you call these people and and so on and so forth. Then Hello normally ends up being frustrated with minimum health. And he sort of squares at him. He insults him. Under 100 outfields bad he goes to the Prophet salallahu Zina. And he says hello. insults me. The Prophet Salam says to Harlequin Walid he says You heard him at the Rajala mean Ali better? No and *a Mithila who didn't happen lamb to the camel Prophet Professor Solomon says to culminate Why do you harm a person from the people of middle?

00:29:37--> 00:29:56

Allah if you do whatever you do, if you've spent the equivalent to Mount Hood in gold, you would not be able to catch up with him. So Khaled Said the Rasul Allah Corona Fie, Fr. Le he says Messenger of Allah, they all attack me to Oh, keep criticizing me and giving me hard time, so I don't have to respond.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

So the prophets of salaam says Learn to

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

We'll call it that to hide it and for inner Jose for men so you fill us up but Allahu Allah, the Prophet says to the Companions, do not harm Khalid, do not give trouble to harlot because he is one of the swords of Allah subhanaw taala that he uses against the disbelievers.

00:30:30--> 00:30:36

Anyway, so, and by the way, this is a famous story that is used, it's actually used a lot

00:30:38--> 00:30:42

against Muslims, it's used a lot, because last thing I heard

00:30:43--> 00:30:51

some so called Muslims, progressive Muslims, they use that and they say, oh, yeah, I mean,

00:30:53--> 00:31:34

terrorism was already there. And they give health knowledge as an example. And they give this incident as an example, by the way, and another incident as well as an example. But again, this is taking the whole story out of context, hadn't read, made a misjudgment, but he's not he's not about bloodshed among the top was not happy with customerid by the way, not happy at all. Really not happy at all. Even when I will buckle up the Allahu Anhu became the Khalifa and one of the top came to him and he said, you know, do you know, get him out of that position? He says in Nephi safey here I happen like he like his sword is like sheds a lot of blood.

00:31:35--> 00:31:40

Like take him out of that position. It shouldn't be that Abacha Villa and it says,

00:31:41--> 00:31:59

Malcolm truly the ultimate safe and sell the whole Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam it is not from it's not for me to you know put back a sword in its sheath off of the Prophet SAW Selim has brought it out talking about Khalid bin Walid.

00:32:04--> 00:32:11

So anyway, these 19 days in Makkah, there was a few things, rulings that the prophets of salaam made

00:32:12--> 00:32:28

clear and make public among them as well was making Nikhil Mata. Haram. Nikhil much was more of a temporary marriage, more of a temporary it wasn't married, but it was temporary. So it had an expiry date on it.

00:32:30--> 00:32:34

So the sun was already practiced among the Arabs.

00:32:35--> 00:32:36

And

00:32:38--> 00:32:51

so it was still valid and being practiced. But in fact, the prophets of salaam said, That's it, it's going to be haram till the Day of Judgment till the DVM Sonica what I was watching

00:32:52--> 00:32:58

is how long it was made. This was announced by the prophets of salaam after Fatima.

00:33:03--> 00:33:20

Now close to Mackinac, far from my life. So what happens is, we have two tribes living in Maine, two big main tribes living in a dive, housing and 30 If there were really big tribes, like in terms of number, they were really big.

00:33:22--> 00:33:26

When they realized that Amazon took over Mecca instead of them thinking,

00:33:27--> 00:33:40

maybe we should make peace with Muhammad Salah maybe consider Islam automatically they thought, you know, enmity with the prophets of Samadhi is the solution. So they decided to get themselves together, put an army together, and

00:33:41--> 00:34:06

attack MCC that was the plan to go and attack market. And they were actually big in number they managed to put together 20,000 Soldiers 20,000 people. Now how much were the Muslims who could really fight 10,000 who came with the Prophet SAW Salem from outside of Mecca for the conquest of Mecca. And as we're going to see shortly 2000 from Makkah,

00:34:07--> 00:34:35

so that's 12,000, but the other ones are 20,000. So probably due to their numbers as well. And for tiefen, who was in were known for their chivalry, like their, their expertise in the battlefield are extremely powerful, well known fighters. So all of that probably put them in a position of arrogance. And they thought Why would we put ourselves under the wing of Mohamed the thought of just fighting him

00:34:37--> 00:34:41

and there was a lot of enmity although a lot of cooperation at the same time. Between

00:34:42--> 00:34:51

these people have a wife who was an entertainer on one side, and oration the other side there was enmity vi still there was a lot of cooperation

00:34:55--> 00:34:58

and among them, by the way, like by no sad

00:34:59--> 00:35:00

for example,

00:35:00--> 00:35:23

Ron Paul and Ben Oh sad are the tribe where the Prophet SAW Salem was nursed as a child. He grew up among them. Halima Sadie is from sad when we started Sandy, right? There were with those guys though with a different housing. So they joined them. And among them was an old man, an older man, very wise and very famous for his again for his,

00:35:25--> 00:35:36

like expertise in warfare, his name was derived diagnose him. And he was extremely, extremely old, actually, some narrations indicated at the time he was 160 years old.

00:35:40--> 00:35:53

And basically, he was a pile of bones. He was blind the time, almost motionless. But he was his mind was still very sharp. And he had a lot of expertise. So there would still give him that.

00:35:55--> 00:35:55

That position.

00:35:58--> 00:36:00

So they appointed a leader, which was

00:36:01--> 00:36:04

probably among the youngest, but one of the most normal mannequins and

00:36:05--> 00:36:06

those were talking about

00:36:08--> 00:36:42

housing and such a former wife, they appointed Malecon young to be their leader. Now, narrations are different differ with regards to his age, some of them say he was 24. Some of them say he was 30. But he was still young, although they had a lot of elderly people, but he was from a very noble lineage from among them. And it seemed that he was a very rising star in terms of in their, in their, in their, in their tribes. So he decided not to wait. He decided actually to go and attack Mecca. That was his plan to be

00:36:43--> 00:36:47

to just initiate the attack against smoking. And

00:36:48--> 00:37:09

he really gets everyone out of a Bife. And he decides as well, to make his fighters fight to the death desperately, he decided to bring their wives and their children along. And all of their wealth would talk about wealth, the wealth was camels, sheep, and goats. That was it.

00:37:11--> 00:37:33

And even they actually brought gold and silver, all their possessions. He said, You bring everything why? He says, because you're going to fight desperately you're going to do, you're not going to think of running away, because if you, if you run away, that means you're going to leave your wife and your children behind. And by the way, the Arabs regardless, they used to do some bad things. But for them,

00:37:34--> 00:37:36

leaving your family behind.

00:37:37--> 00:37:48

Like death was much easier than that. Much easier than this is something they would not they would not do. Unless it was a very desperate state, like a person was completely out of their mind.

00:37:53--> 00:38:05

So on the way, they come to a value, which is actually a huge, very huge value. It's miles in width. It's really miles in width. It's a very open area. But around it, there's lots of mountains, very steep mountains.

00:38:06--> 00:38:22

And it's called why the outdoors. Or some of them used to call it hunting as well, but the main name was outdoors. So when he reached there, he said he thought that you know, and he had because he was sending some spies Iran and the they broke the news that Mohamed Salah Salam heard about him.

00:38:23--> 00:38:36

And he decided to fight him to actually march out of Mecca and approach him rather than wait for him to come to Mecca. And I think it was a very wise decision from the prophets of salaam not to fight in Mecca. Because

00:38:38--> 00:38:43

I mean, the Mexicans just became Muslims. And that shows that Islam was still weak.

00:38:44--> 00:39:11

It was still weak. A lot of them had issues. By the way. Remember, we said last week, even Abu Sufyan was having thoughts. What if I put together an army and fight Mohamed El Salam and the Prophet Salam came at his back, slapped him on his back and he said, then Allah will destroy you. Right there, we're still thinking about that. We're still thinking about this. And we're gonna see even now like, some of them did not even take part in the battle. They actually were watching from a distance they want to see who is going to win and they would side with the witness.

00:39:12--> 00:39:34

These are Muslims, new Muslims. Some of them were the leaders of Makkah. There was still unsure, still unsure. And we mentioned one of them as well was when the Prophet was making the wife wanted to kill him. Right. He had a he had some a knife with him, and he wanted to sneak around probably get a chance to stop the prophets of Allah when he was in them.

00:39:35--> 00:39:39

So Malcolm brings his

00:39:41--> 00:39:49

his tribe, both tribes, and we said there's 20 fighters, men, fighters, and with the children

00:39:50--> 00:39:54

and the camels, I think the camels they had like 40,000, camels,

00:39:56--> 00:39:57

huge numbers, something like that.

00:40:00--> 00:40:22

So in some narrations, historical narrations, like some of the Muslims, when they saw the army, they they said it looked like 80,000 Because you have the army 20,000 In the front, in the middle you have the children and the women. There are some narrations indicate that Malecon elf told a gave instructions that women and children ride the camels.

00:40:23--> 00:40:36

So they look from a distance as if they are fighters. So they wanted this was psychological warfare. So if the Muslim see like this huge number of people, they think we have no chance. So let's just withdraw. That was one of his plans.

00:40:38--> 00:40:42

So the older Mandroid Nasim was very old, and he couldn't see.

00:40:43--> 00:40:45

And leaders will take advice from him.

00:40:47--> 00:41:10

So he asks, he realized they started camping. So he asks, he asked for the leader melachim know, what area is this? They said, This is what the outdoors is, that's a very good area for warfare. Very good, very good choice. Obviously, he has a lot of experience. Now he's blind, but he knows the He knows every inch of this of this land. So he says a very good,

00:41:11--> 00:41:27

you know, plan to actually come here. And then he says, but I can hear children and women. And I can hear like the sound of camels and sheep, what's going on? Like this? Isn't? That doesn't, you don't hear those sounds? You know, what I?

00:41:28--> 00:42:10

The medical office said yes, my instructions was to bring everyone, children, women, everything. So people are going to find desperately to protect their family, they don't think of running away during the last summer said my son, that's not the way to go about that. That's not a wise decision. Because if you win the battle, you'll need your women and children and sheep and camels. It's more of a burden on you. And if you lose the battle, you know, when people run away from the battlefield, nothing is going to bring them back not even their family or their kids, when they are in that desperate state when everyone and by the way, this is groupthink. When when it's not that sometimes

00:42:10--> 00:42:36

might somebody might think, oh, no, no, no, I'm gonna, you know, I'm gonna hold my position. Even if people run away. No, you're not, you're not gonna do that. You're not That's not how we humans behave. By the way. Only a small percentage of people act differently. The majority of people just flow with the tide. Even though you're not convinced you just, you know, you can't help it. It's a system inside you that takes over. And you just went away with the people.

00:42:38--> 00:42:47

And this is something that's been started. Very, I mean, extensively, for I mean, even more than more than a century ago. And I think

00:42:48--> 00:42:58

one of the people who brought that to attention was the French philosopher or thinker, because to have Lobo he wrote about

00:42:59--> 00:43:10

group mind, group mind how people think in groups, people don't think the same way, by the way as, as they would individually. And that's why people in parties, they do weird things

00:43:11--> 00:43:45

that they won't do otherwise, if they were alone. Why? Because when you are in a group, you do everything. And a lot of what happens by the way, tons of riots, the reason why people act crazy, they start destroying property and everything and act crazy and do really nasty things that they want otherwise do is this kind of group mentality. So when humans get as, together as groups, they move as one entity. That's extremely dangerous, by the way, extremely, extremely dangerous. And that's why in hedge sometimes stampedes happen, and you say why would people you know, run over others?

00:43:47--> 00:43:48

They're not thinking

00:43:50--> 00:44:17

they're not thinking, when you are moving in unison is a huge group. You don't think as an individual? You don't think you just become part of that group? You don't feel it? Yeah, it's very come from that it's comfortable for you to say no, that doesn't make sense. Well, I would behave differently. When when you are when you are in that position. You don't, you don't even have a choice. As I said, very small minority of people actually are able to break from that.

00:44:19--> 00:44:20

From that pattern. So

00:44:21--> 00:44:36

during the summer, he says, so when people are running away, no one is going to stop whether even if their wealth and their family when it's their life. And it's the whole group running away. That's not going to bring them back. He said, I'm the leader, the younger man said, I'm the leader.

00:44:37--> 00:44:59

And these are my instructions. I'm not changing my instructions. So directly my smile was upset. Like his opinion would always be taken, because it comes from expertise and, and knowledge and status and so on and so forth. Then anyway, he makes some comments. He's not happy with that, but he says okay, so if you refuse to take this advice

00:45:00--> 00:45:15

For me what I would say, don't you know start the battle face to face, create an ambush. This is a very good location for ambush you can ambush them you can set them up in a way they can take them out completely, easily like in a short time.

00:45:17--> 00:45:27

So America Alpha decides to take that advice and they sort of ambush the Muslims that's how they set up the battle for themselves from their side.

00:45:28--> 00:45:51

The prophets of salaam sends a companion His name is Abdullah and will be headed to actually go into a bar f go into the army of Hawaiian Anthropy chief and he managed manages to blend it then didn't recognize him so he's among them and He sees everything about them. He brings the news to the prophets Allah Islam, the messenger Salam notices many people don't have weapons, especially in Mecca

00:45:53--> 00:45:54

and

00:45:55--> 00:45:59

many of them don't have even camels or horses to ride on.

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

So the prophets of salaam goes to suffer one will only and if you guys remember is a phenomenon where he is not Muslim yet he

00:46:07--> 00:46:21

he got was a break from the prophets of salaam he said that's a time for you. I'll give you four months. Four months no one's gonna touch you for four months do what you want. So so far I'm no Maria decides to join the Muslims. Why?

00:46:23--> 00:46:28

But that gives you a peek into how those people thought why

00:46:31--> 00:46:32

not necessarily war booty? No.

00:46:35--> 00:46:42

He said these are my people I'm going to fight with my people to the death regardless. And he said like either die with my people.

00:46:43--> 00:46:54

Or I'd rather die with my people rather than being governed by someone from for cliff or Hawaii. Again the same pride thing their patriotism, their nationality,

00:46:56--> 00:46:58

their nationalism so

00:46:59--> 00:47:10

SFX one is a very rich person he was by the way he was weapon merchants used to sell weapons at a huge reservoir of arms

00:47:12--> 00:47:17

so so the prophets of salaam asked him to give him some weapons and and

00:47:19--> 00:47:20

and armors

00:47:24--> 00:47:30

and he took from me he borrowed from him 40,000 pieces of armory

00:47:31--> 00:47:33

40,000 pieces

00:47:34--> 00:47:38

that tells you how rich that person was. So

00:47:39--> 00:47:42

the person asks for this as a

00:47:44--> 00:47:48

Moreover, as a loan to lend it to me, we'll give it back to you.

00:47:49--> 00:48:04

So, the problem he says to the problem are you going to take them by force you forcing me into it? The profit zone said no, we just politely asking for them. When a borrow that from you will give it back to you. He says okay, go ahead take it

00:48:05--> 00:48:06

so

00:48:07--> 00:48:12

so he takes his on the Prophet SAW Salem makes dua for him afterwards.

00:48:14--> 00:48:17

So the Muslims marched out of Makkah towards a Part F

00:48:18--> 00:48:19

and

00:48:20--> 00:48:49

12,000 people the Muslims were 20 12,000 people, two of them were very recent Muslims are not dependable yet most of them for the most part, on the way they come across a tree that they used to use in like a huge tree than they used to using genitalia. And you know, they had these habits or traditions like they would seek blessings from objects around so this was this tree they used to sort of like

00:48:50--> 00:49:20

you know, sometimes people write their wishes and tie them on a tree right? Or try them on something on a wall or or throw them in a well or go to a mausoleum or go to a grave and write a wish and put it there with with a couple of like dollars, etc. Things like that, which is all haram all either Szybko leads to shirk. So these new Muslims they still they're not they haven't they're not aware of this stuff in Islam.

00:49:21--> 00:49:28

So they see the tree they say Rasul Allah, Allah data anois messenger of Allah let us hang because the Arabs are the people of Christ. They used to hang their

00:49:29--> 00:49:41

swords and the bows on the branches of this tree thinking he was going to give them blessings. Maybe there was an Army and they haven't to be resting there and they hang their stuff there and then

00:49:48--> 00:49:52

yeah, and then they had a battle so they thought, okay, by hanging our stuff.

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

That's the reason we won the battle. So probably they thought this way, and they started to use it. They think that

00:50:00--> 00:50:32

I'm going to bless them and give them victory. So they said to the prop salon let's you know, get our stuff hung on the on the tree on the branches of the tree it Jelena that unwelcome around that and all the prophets isms is Allahu Akbar, in Hassan and as sunnah these are the same ways as the people or the old of the past. Nakata Allah have altom come a call, it's been slowly Musa Jelena Ilan Kamala Ha, Maria, you have just said, like, children of Israel said to Musa alayhis salam, you know, give us a God like they have a God.

00:50:33--> 00:50:39

These people worship because they were when they left Egypt, they passed by a people who were worshipping statue, right?

00:50:41--> 00:50:50

And they thought, wow, yeah, why don't we get something like this and worship it. So the process I'm saying, You're just saying the same, saying something similar.

00:50:52--> 00:51:35

So the Prophet Salam here was teaching them and as we said, these are just the new Muslim still, they don't know. They're clueless, they're clueless, and many of them are still Islam has not taken roots in the, in the hearts. So the one of these pies the props of them, had sent came back to the prophets of Salaam and he says, I've seen you know, housing and TAFE all of them, all of them. They've come here to you know, to take part in the battle, the prophets of salaam smiles and he says to give aneema to Muslim you know what and Inshallah, there will be there will foil and they will fail. They will fall in the hands of the Muslims tomorrow in sha Allah, Prophet, and obviously the

00:51:35--> 00:51:48

prophets of Salam has got the news from Allah subhanaw taala. Then the problem asks for someone to guard them during the night now because they're getting close to ours. And so you need to be ready because you could be attacked.

00:51:49--> 00:52:16

You could be ambushed while you're sleeping. So, the Prophet SAW Salem chose one companion. His name is Anissa but don't be Morford Alana we and the prophets of salaam says, you ride your horse or your camel, you climb that mountain, you stay on top, and you observe this whole site where people of above could come from, and you do not unmount your horse.

00:52:19--> 00:52:42

Then they spent the night they wake up for failure to profit a person's praises to sunnah. And by the way, in the Protestant improve, traveled, he would not pray the sun, except for son of the federal two, and Witter who would pray with us. Okay, but the rest of the Sunnah of the Prophet Salam would not observe them. And by the way the prophets of salaam never prayed with her one blocker. Never.

00:52:43--> 00:52:58

From the older generations that we know the problem never prayed with raka the least the prophets of salaam prayed Witter was three aka the least. It doesn't mean you can't pray one, you can pray one, but we're just talking about the

00:53:00--> 00:53:26

practice of the Prophet sallallahu Sena, the Prophet of Islam after finishing his two sunnah he asks have you seen the guy that we sent to sort of observe and Goddess said not in the prophets of salaam calls for the farmer and they pray Fudger when the prophets of salaam makes the slim offer, he says abseil over a Jafari SOCOM Okay, he's on his way. He's on his way. So the wait a little bit and the man just comes about and

00:53:28--> 00:53:58

the program asks him he says, I haven't seen anything. It's clear haven't seen any of them. Program asked him Did you ever get off your horse? He says no, except to pray or to answer the call of nature. That's the I remain so basically, he observed the instructions of the prophets of salaam to the letter of the Prophet and said LJ but you have guaranteed paradise. You have guaranteed paradise Fela Allah Kanda Tamela Banda, you've guaranteed paradise you don't have to do much afterwards.

00:53:59--> 00:54:02

It doesn't mean you don't have to do anything but it means okay.

00:54:03--> 00:54:10

Just like you've made enough to get you into paradise. Okay. You don't need to do that much after obviously after the obligations

00:54:13--> 00:54:21

then the prophets of salaam reaches, you know, the same value the other end of the valley where the old boss or the Valley of odours

00:54:24--> 00:54:36

and the President gets the army the Muslim army ready. Now the thief and I wasn't really put a very good plan together. It was based on the advice of the older man right in the cinema.

00:54:37--> 00:54:41

So Chawla next week we will see what the plan was and what was

00:54:42--> 00:54:48

the outcome of this battle. We had an alert. So we'll stop here. We can take a couple of questions we have

00:54:50--> 00:54:51

any questions? Yes, ma'am.

00:55:00--> 00:55:00

Oh

00:55:14--> 00:55:19

yes, very good. Very good question. The question was

00:55:20--> 00:56:04

that king of Malaysia all converted to Islam and thus the whole population became Muslim and generations and generations until today are still Muslim. Does that count also the kajaria for him? Absolutely. Absolutely. Yes. So the person says man that you know who then can and whom is through surgery Valley whoever guides to a guidance whoever leads someone to a guidance to any form of guidance that means obviously the guidance of Islam and any any virtue in Islam is called also guidance then he will get similar reward so but but also will be a set of criteria for the person who got the kink to become Muslim. Imagine again. Yeah, so it does count to certify GRE as questions

00:56:16--> 00:56:20

okay, did I say the person did not prefer just when he's traveled

00:56:25--> 00:56:56

okay, I would I guess one of the brothers actually reminded me that I said the person would not pre sun right when he was traveling. Yeah, so I missed saying that Fajr actually he prayed vigil right by just slipped my mind. So here I'm saying to you for some would not pray so known he was traveling and that's the Sunnah is not to pray. So now when you are traveling, except for Witter and the snow now fizzle Okay, so that registered in your mind fix it in that regards? Yeah.

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

Yeah

00:57:03--> 00:57:03

yeah.

00:57:06--> 00:57:35

No, still don't pray. I mean, you can pray it. But if you want to follow the Sunnah you don't pray it. So if you're traveling you come to a masjid and you pray with him I'm sure we pray with the Imam by the way, you pray like the imam prays, you don't pray to if he's praying for know what the person says in the majority imamo you will tend to be the Imam is there to be followed. So you follow the Imam you pray with the Jamar you pray for with them. But do you pray the Sunnah will the Sunnah is not to pray it you because you're still traveling

00:57:42--> 00:57:47

now we're saying can you pray it you can pray it, which is better is not to pray it.

00:57:48--> 00:57:50

It is better not to pray it.

00:57:52--> 00:57:55

Why? Because you're following the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam.

00:57:56--> 00:57:56

But

00:57:58--> 00:58:09

it might sound counterintuitive, but reward is not always by doing sometimes by not doing which is by following the son of the Prophet SAW Selim. Like there was one guy

00:58:11--> 00:58:16

I think was that was besides when he came to the masjid of the prophets of salaam Fajr time

00:58:17--> 00:58:24

he started praying to Raka and then to rocker. Then save them save grabs him. He says are you going to pray like

00:58:26--> 00:58:41

well, you're going to pray Fajr for rock whatever. Like what are you going to pray? He says are you at the vanilla who Allah Salah is Allah going to punish me because I'm praying makes sense, right? I'm praying you think Allah is gonna punish me because I'm just praying more.

00:58:42--> 00:58:50

He says value at zebu kala kala his son, but He punishes you for not following the sun.

00:58:51--> 00:58:55

So the reward is not always by doing sometimes by not doing

00:58:57--> 00:58:58

yes

00:59:00--> 00:59:10

no, no, the young lady we said the process I'm pretty Emily at night. Yeah. So we're talking about the Sunnah robotic the Sunanda before and after the five daily prayers excellent.

00:59:13--> 00:59:16

I don't know about whether he would pray it or leave it during

00:59:26--> 00:59:27

questions

00:59:31--> 00:59:32

unfortunately,

00:59:33--> 00:59:37

people didn't take it serious. So sometimes when come to

00:59:45--> 00:59:45

this place

00:59:46--> 00:59:49

and sometimes they miss it.

00:59:53--> 00:59:59

Yeah, yeah, that's unfortunately. So when someone comes to the masjid, whether it's Fudger or other than Fajr

01:00:00--> 01:00:45

But in federal it's more so they come to the masjid Imam is already has already started praying the free Allah praying the federal Salah some people come and they take to the one corner and they go and pray their sunnah then they will come and catch up with the Imam sometimes they miss like halacha or something which is a huge huge like mistake, huge mistake and even if they did not miss a vodka it's a huge mistake to miss the law with the Imam the Prophet SAW salem said in a statement Hadith authentic hadith is either okay matter Salah to failure salata lol Matoba if the karma for Salah is made, then there is no room for Salah there's no place for any Salah except the obligatory

01:00:45--> 01:00:48

one. The one that now the Imam is praying

01:00:50--> 01:00:58

I know that some of them are hobbyists they sort of you can take to sign them and and sort of prayer sooner but really that's that goes against the

01:01:00--> 01:01:18

the general principle about not missing anything with the Imam if you can catch up because there's a great reward. You're missing out on that. And number two, you're you might be solid and then number two is you're going against the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam some people actually do they miss the combiotic Haram

01:01:19--> 01:01:45

like they're there for the karma but the Gratian pray the Sunnah. And then they say we'll catch up with the Imam some of these scholars and I really forgot what narration is the sort of build this upon but they say the biggest reward in Salah is with the community the home if you miss it you have because you have missed the biggest chunk, the biggest chunk of Salah of reward and Salah. So it's not a joke. It's not a joke. You're trying. Again, you're trying to they say in Arabic. Yeah, the more

01:01:47--> 01:01:56

missin Leah, Mala cassava, like you're trying to build a mansion for yourself. And in order to build that mansion for yourself, you go and destroy your whole town.

01:01:58--> 01:02:01

This madness, right? Again, you find?

01:02:04--> 01:02:44

You find this among some of the youth. So find someone who just came recently to start practices more. Someone came just recently to Islam. And because he makes a mistake, they go off to him, right? And they push him away from Islam and he leaves there and no, I really remember a person who told me he was born to a Muslim mother. But again, they were ignorant. His mother married a non Muslim. So he came from that marriage. His mother was Muslim. His father was not Muslim. So he just knows them among Muslims, like my mother. That's all he knows. And then at age 16, his mother took him to the masjid once when he was a child. And age 16 He says I sort of started looking for myself

01:02:44--> 01:02:51

figuring out who I was. I thought I was Muslim, and Muslim. So let me be with the Muslims and learn Islam and practice Islam. So he goes to the masjid.

01:02:53--> 01:03:14

And he says, I go to Masjid and pray with them and I see how they pray. I really love it. Said I'm in completely in. I'm all in with these guys. So he says, Then I go to the water fountain. And I fill the cup. And I'm drinking and I said I'm drinking water and I get this huge slap across the back of my head. Huge slap

01:03:18--> 01:03:30

it's just like I was in complete shock. It was so painful. Like never expected like that. And the other person says, it's hard to to drink when you're standing sit down.

01:03:33--> 01:03:38

So he said that was my last day in the masjid. First and Last day in the masjid.

01:03:40--> 01:03:43

So the only came back to the masjid was 2223.

01:03:44--> 01:04:17

So again, this guy, he wanted to teach him an etiquette, which is better to drink when you're standing when you're sitting when you're sitting. But did you do to this guy allowance that so again, so those people that's what they do. I mean, if you if you want to, what you can do is pray your sunnah after you're done with your Salah. And some of the reasons came from the companions of the Alana that some of them came late. for Fajr they prayed with a processor. And then after fajr they made their son. That's not a big deal. It's not about by the way, it doesn't become about

01:04:18--> 01:04:20

you if you've done your best. Yeah, questions

01:04:26--> 01:04:26

is what?

01:04:28--> 01:04:54

Well, let me tell you, this is an issue of debate. And I personally don't like to get into these issues because some people place a lot of emphasis on them. When if you really look at the self and the early generations and how the scholars dealt with that. They took it easy. They took it easy. And this year, we had Chef malcolmus He was here. And he gave a very good illustration and explanation of the whole thing. And I remember you're coming back to me with this and

01:04:55--> 01:04:59

I'm not going to give you the answers. No, we're not going to give you the answer what the sheriff said

01:05:00--> 01:05:17

is the opinion that I take that drinking while standing is okay is okay but it's better to to drink when you are seated and you're seated are there other opinions there are other opinions for example chicken Bernie sees that it's actually haram

01:05:18--> 01:05:20

unless there is a need unless

01:05:23--> 01:05:33

the person drank when he was standing in Hajj in in the house of Salam and so on and so forth right but there is debate as to why he drank standing and so on so forth. But I would say

01:05:34--> 01:05:42

look at the practice of the companions the opinions of the companions, you have you put all of the Hadith together not take one of them, okay? And not take a hadith.

01:05:43--> 01:05:48

Okay, when a piece of it is not authentic, yes, I will carry

01:05:49--> 01:05:51

a piece of it, I will give you

01:05:52--> 01:06:29

a piece of it is not authentic. Okay, there are Hadith you find a hadith, the body of the hadith is authentic, but one statement, it is not authentic. Okay, but I'm not going to get into this because most people will not qualify to get into that it would be just problematic. So when you put all the Hadith together, it becomes I mean, at least in my opinion, the scholars who say that it's not advisable but it's not haram. You can you can drinks. It's macro, basically. And the Quran means there's no sin on you. There's no sin in you, but you'll get reward if you abort if you drink while sitting.

01:06:32--> 01:06:33

One more question

01:06:35--> 01:06:35

regarding

01:06:37--> 01:06:38

shortening the prayers

01:06:40--> 01:06:44

regarding what shortening Okay, when someone goes for

01:06:45--> 01:06:48

maybe two or three days.

01:06:50--> 01:06:54

Unintentionally, the complex of these things like for one

01:06:56--> 01:06:59

case of human trafficking,

01:07:01--> 01:07:02

human trafficking

01:07:03--> 01:07:05

people go from one country to another

01:07:06--> 01:07:07

to some pages.

01:07:10--> 01:07:21

Okay, I mean regardless, regardless if someone travels and intends to travel for two or three days, and they happen to be stuck there for a month, still they shorten still they shorten as long as they are travelers they shorten

01:07:26--> 01:07:27

even if it's more than one month, yes.

01:07:29--> 01:07:35

So I will see inshallah next week is our Kamala, solo cinema, bollock and Abdul also in Hammond who adios adios
