To clarify some time, some of the hidden aspects of the leadership of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And these things are usually overlooked, specifically at times of

00:00:10--> 00:00:20

times when the Muslims are far away from the life of the prophet saw Salem. It's only in the books and in some series and people don't have

00:00:22--> 00:00:28

a great attachment to it. Below Can you close the door so they can pray more comfortably.

00:00:30--> 00:00:39

So people don't have this high level of involvement in it. So the life of the prophets or sudden becomes mere stories and sometimes a little bit of, there's not

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

a little bit of, of knowledge of the, of the events and some knowledge of a little bit of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. But again, there is no comprehensive approach to the life of the prophet saw Selim and his sunnah. And that's why the Muslim scholars like Imam have been

00:01:02--> 00:01:22

one of the Muslim scholars he says, Allah could dunya Flf he says the people who destroyed this dunya are three types of people and soften it with Emma once awful lot, but what and so on suffer Luca when he says the three types of people who destroyed this existence are

00:01:23--> 00:01:29

the half scholars, the half physicians, and the half linguists.

00:01:30--> 00:02:14

For an slothful, it will ama episode bloob. So the half scholars have corrupted the hearts. Why, because they don't give a complete image, they give a deficient image, a biased image, and understanding of Islam itself. And the half physicians, once I have a lot of absolute abduction, and they have physicians, They corrupted the bodies, people's bodies, it's just common to someone, for example, let's say a very common classical example is that some you have like pain in the stomach, and you express that to your friend. And he says, like I had this pain stomach and I went to the doctor and I ended up having an ulcer. So probably you need to take this medication. But you know,

00:02:14--> 00:02:29

in a pain in the stomach, could come from someone who could be the result of different reasons. Like there's 1000 different reasons for why you have pain in the stomach. And again, this is someone who has half knowledge. And that's why by the way, the Arabs, they say,

00:02:30--> 00:02:32

half a truth is a lie.

00:02:33--> 00:02:36

Half the truth, half a truth is a lie.

00:02:37--> 00:03:01

If you present half of the truth, you're lying, you're not. I mean, you're not technically like lying, like you're not twisting reality, but you're only presenting half of what happened. And you're hiding some so you're automatically lying. And this happens usually with the story of like two children, having a fight among themselves, you find one of them comes to you weeping all tears, and they say, you know, so and so smacked me in the face.

00:03:02--> 00:03:14

And you feel enraged, you want to punish that kid, right? You're gonna ask that kid, they punched me first and just punch them back. So again, that's half of half of the truth is a lie.

00:03:15--> 00:03:52

And the third type is half a linguist they destroyed the tongues. So they basically teach people how to speak they teach them language, but it's wrong the way they teach them language. And that's why you don't want to send your kid for example, to learn English from someone who doesn't speak English. Well, I could actually notice this sometimes in certain schools like teachers are not qualified and they don't speak for example, good English and you find you your child this is coming to you on speaking like improper English and learning or improper English why because that person does not speak good language. So again, we the life of the prophets of salaam we really need a

00:03:52--> 00:03:57

holistic understanding of it, we need a holistic understanding of it. And when

00:03:58--> 00:04:32

usually people have like a more like complete understanding of the life and the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim, they will tend to become less extreme, generally speaking. So we'll find the Prophet Solomon. That's the aspect of leadership I want to talk about here. The Prophet SAW Selim, as he was inviting these Arabs to Islam and he was receiving the delegates. He was also very, very responsive to their situations, and he could actually, he could read, he could read them very well and he does he dealt with them accordingly. So we have in Muslim Imam Muhammad.

00:04:33--> 00:04:45

There is a there's a narration that's authentic. With Latif, we remember that the Prophet Solomon just defeated them. The patient who wasn't from afar if prophesied and defeated demonstrative came as Muslim.

00:04:50--> 00:04:50

And

00:04:52--> 00:04:58

when they became as Muslim, and they offered to give the bait out to the Prophet SAW Selim, they made a condition

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

made a condition

00:05:00--> 00:05:04

They said we will become Muslim but we won't pray five, five times a day.

00:05:06--> 00:05:07

We'll pray twice.

00:05:09--> 00:05:13

We will pray twice. What do you think the prophets of salaam said?

00:05:14--> 00:05:28

Although you will find some times, you know, a person came to the Prophet SAW Salem and said, Well, I will for example, I will pray but I will not pay soccer. Yet the prophets of salaam said no this religion you either take it or leave it all.

00:05:29--> 00:05:44

But other people came to the prophets of Salaam and they said we will become Muslim. But our condition is to pray only two prayers a day not five. What do you think the response of the prophets of salaam was? He accepted that

00:05:46--> 00:05:52

some of the companions came to the Prophet or someone said how come like that's the prayer. The prophets of salaam says

00:05:54--> 00:06:31

either Islam wahala or Tala to who Luba whom son Lew Wasserman was a call when when they become Muslim and they see the beauty, the hearts taste the sweetness of Eman, then they will actually pray the full prayers, and they will give their account and they will faster the Ramadan and everything. So don't worry about that. Again, that doesn't mean we take liberty with such concessions, we offer them to people No, it seems this was a very specific situation that the prophets of salaam could read these people because in other instances, the Prophet Solomon did not accept that did not give people that kind of concession.

00:06:33--> 00:06:49

But other times he gave that concession. So obviously the Prophet zelalem was reading these people well, and he was responding accordingly. That's how we can put all of these different incidents in a state of harmony together. When man came to the prophets of salaam

00:06:50--> 00:07:07

or sorry, it was actually a man sorry, it was a man. It was a person who said I will become a Muslim but I will pray only two prayers, what forgive actually did they said to the Prophet and we will become Muslims. But we want exemption from two things. We will not pay soccer

00:07:08--> 00:07:10

and we will not take part in jihad.

00:07:13--> 00:07:33

So the problem give them that so with that if it wasn't sorry, it wasn't the the to press to press was with a person. What was with one person. Also the other narration is any member of the Muslim imam. So again, the prophet Islam was using his wisdom and his knowledge of the people. And he knew sometimes people would actually made a made it would make a point

00:07:35--> 00:07:40

out of arrogance, and he could see that, so he would give it to them. He would give it to them.

00:07:41--> 00:07:51

And that's that's wisdom. That's part of the leadership of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, something happened an incident happened here with the Prophet Solomon, his private life. And it was.

00:07:52--> 00:07:57

This is a fundamental difference between the people in Makkah and the people in Medina, people in Makkah.

00:07:59--> 00:08:06

There were quite dominant, like men in the family were quite dominant, like a woman didn't have much say in the house.

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

A woman like her wife could not even talk back to her husband.

00:08:12--> 00:08:38

So men were extremely dominant, and women were very submissive. Whereas in Medina, women actually had so much power in the family. It was a different social dynamic, different social dynamic. So even the companions or the along the modulating they used to say, couldn't go woman Natalie boo, Nisa, Anna. We used to be people like men who would dominate their wives their wives

00:08:39--> 00:08:50

from Milan merge in El Medina, Virginia. Regina and Reba home Lisa home and we came to Medina we find the women dominate the men. The women dominate the men.

00:08:52--> 00:09:03

So I shall allow Anna as she says Fattah Nisa when I'm in the same so the women of the MaHA jurien They actually learned from the women of the answer and they started playing the same game

00:09:04--> 00:09:09

it started being a little bit more dominant in the in the house.

00:09:10--> 00:09:22

So I wanted to Hatha by the way he was about this. I'm gonna have Bob is from Makkah, so he hears about this and his daughter. Hafsa is the wife of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So um, I don't know how tabi hears, He hears that.

00:09:23--> 00:09:31

The wives of the prophets are some actually Mr. Mohawk, Bob was speaking with his wife, and she talked back to him.

00:09:33--> 00:09:34

He objected to that.

00:09:35--> 00:09:40

She said, Why are you upset with me? The wives of the Prophet SAW said I'm talking back to him.

00:09:43--> 00:09:58

So I'm gonna have to upset away of Elena Dalek. Do they really do this? She said yes. Go and ask half so your daughter. So um hottub goes to Hafsa he actually speaks with her and he says, just find the narration where it mentioned something like that.

00:10:00--> 00:10:15

Yeah so his wife the wife, Monica, she says For Allah He in His Word and Nabi SallAllahu Sallam let your idea and now the wives of the Prophet and talk back to him were in Nash dona la jolla, Julio Mata Lael and one of them would cut him off for the whole day

00:10:17--> 00:10:19

as a form of sort of expressing her like

00:10:20--> 00:10:26

disagreement over something I'm gonna hardtop says I, I like that freaked me out.

00:10:28--> 00:10:43

So I went to Hafsa and I, and I asked him, and so he asked it to all the boys, that couldn't be yo yo Mata lane. This is one of you get the prompts and I'm upset, and she cuts him off till like the end of the day. She said yes.

00:10:45--> 00:11:03

For I'm gonna hit boxes to help him to passivity. He says, like, Woe to you, like you've lost like you've destroyed yourself, what do you do? How do you do this to the process? How do you feel? How do you feel safe that Allah subhanaw taala would send down His anger upon you if you upset the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

anyway, so

00:11:08--> 00:11:34

the prophets, awesome, the dynamics of the wives of the Prophet Salam, sometimes, you know, went out of hand. So there was jealousy, and that's normal. It used to happen on the Prophet, I'm used to put up with it. Prophets also used to put up with it. So one day, the messenger Salam had guests, and that was in the house of actual the Allahu Allah and obviously, the chambers of the of the rooms of the wives of the Prophet Salem, were in the same area. So

00:11:37--> 00:11:42

outside the house of Artesia, the person was hosting some guests outside. And

00:11:44--> 00:12:03

so Zeynep I believe it was Xena. She brought some food on a platter, and she offered it to the Prophet salallahu salam to or to give it to his guests. And I shallowly Allah sees this, she holds the platter and she smashes it. She smacks it so it's shattered, shattered into pieces.

00:12:04--> 00:12:30

The people out there, they see they see the incident. The President sees that what does the messengers say? He says, avala Tomoko, your mother, Aisha, the mothers are Mothers of the Believers. Why is it the promiseland Your mother has become jealous. That's all he did. Then the prophets are seldom goes to inside the house of Russia and he gets a similar platter. And he gives it back to Zenith he says this is for that.

00:12:31--> 00:13:14

This is for the plot of the actual book. And that's it. So there was some kind of dynamic and usually I shall have the Laquanda and Hafsa would be on on one side against Xena only Allah Allah on the other side. So there was a very, like heated competition between Chablis Allah and Anna and Xena, very heated competition. And Subhan Allah when Xena later on in towards the last couple of years in the life of the prophet saw Saddam Zina probably Allahu anha. And she was probably the most like the ones who did so much like apparently some a lot of righteous deeds. So she used to fast most of the days she used to pray most of the night she used to give a lot for the sake of Allah

00:13:14--> 00:13:19

subhanaw taala. So she was called the abbey the Zed. She was called the worshipper.

00:13:20--> 00:13:31

She gave her night because the Prophet saw them had you know, each night would be with one of his wives in her stay in her house. So zeyneb gave her house up to Aisha

00:13:33--> 00:13:36

towards the end of the Prophet saws and lambs. Life.

00:13:38--> 00:13:38

Okay, so.

00:13:39--> 00:13:56

So it seems that Isha and have some of the Allahu anma They noticed the Prophet SAW Salem. He used to go to the house of Zainab and Zainab used to get a special type of honey that the Prophet SAW Salem loved. And he would go to the house of Zeynep, specifically to get that honey.

00:13:58--> 00:14:08

So they, they actually put a plan together, to stop the prophets and Selim from doing that. So they agreed together. It's sort of conspired together.

00:14:09--> 00:14:21

They said, If the Prophet SAW Selim goes to the House of Xena, if he comes to one of us, we tell him, you know, what's the smell coming out of your mouth? Like smells like garlic, right?

00:14:22--> 00:14:59

So they did that. I actually did that and have studied that the Prophet SAW Salem, there was something about this is a personal thing about the messenger Salam, the messenger, salaam loved good smells. So this is why the Prophet says in one Hadith hook by either Yemen Minh in dunya, calm and Nisa Oakley was beautified to me and what was made to appeal to me a lot from the pleasures the halal pleasures of your of your world is having a spouse why? His own wives his relationship to his wives and perfume. The prophet that is why the Prophet Salam you know

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

Beautiful smells. He always had a beautiful He always wore a beautiful smell.

00:15:06--> 00:15:25

And the Prophet Salem hated any bad smell. He was very sensitive to bad smells to the point that the Prophet Salim would not eat garlic or onions due to their smell due to their smell. So when he was told that that your saw he came to Hafsa also he yeah he one day he goes back home.

00:15:27--> 00:15:32

And so one of them's you have some or actually Allah Anna.

00:15:34--> 00:15:41

She says to the prophesy Salam, she says, What's the smell coming out of your mouth? Smells like garlic.

00:15:42--> 00:16:21

The Prophet said I had nothing go on. He had some honey from Xena. He smells like garlic. I was I'm saying Wallahi I will never taste that again. I will never taste it again. He was very sensitive with regards to bad smell he he couldn't like take the fact or even the notion that a bad smell could come out of him. So the then Allah subhanaw taala reprimanded, the Prophet SAW Selim, he says, Yeah, you have NaVi Ulema to help him OMA Hala Hala Surah Tarim you're gonna be limited at MoMA Hala, who like I tempted him metadata as magic or messenger of Allah. Why do you make haram for yourself? What Allah made halal for you, honey, Allah made it halal for you, why do you make it

00:16:21--> 00:16:23

haram for yourself? So

00:16:24--> 00:16:37

then Allah subhanaw taala told the prophets of salaam about this agreement between shall the Allahu Allah and Hafsa the Prophet seldom gets upset, and he decides to cut off his wives

00:16:39--> 00:16:47

cut off his wives and he does not approach them for about for 29 days 29 days

00:16:49--> 00:16:58

and this is called Isla, when a husband refuses to get close to his wife. That's basically called Isla isla.

00:17:00--> 00:17:02

Now the the

00:17:03--> 00:17:27

the wives of the Prophet Islam did not know does that mean divorce, they were confused and they were scared as well. I'm gonna hop himself when he heard about this. He went to the prophets of salaam to speak with him with regards to this. And he he actually goes to health he first goes to the Prophet and suddenly he seeks permission to meet the Prophet Allah but he was not granted permission. So he goes to Hassan and he asked that the Prophet SAW Salem divorce you, Jesus? I don't know. I don't know.

00:17:30--> 00:18:01

So, it was a hard time for the for the wives of the Prophet SAW Salem. But it was a message that needed to be sent. And that shows sometimes, yes, some decisiveness isn't needed. Some decisiveness is needed. And ultimately the Prophet saw someone back to his wife 29 Because he made an oath not to get close not to come close to his wives for a month for a month and 29 is actually a month you know, in the in the lunar calendar, a month could be 29 or 30 days.

00:18:03--> 00:18:17

Then Allah subhanaw taala commanded the prophets of salaam to give a sort of ultimatum to his wives. Where Allah Subhan Allah says yeah, you want to be your only as well as you can continue to regional Hayato dunya was in fertile in oh my

00:18:18--> 00:18:30

goodness, Allah and Jamila were in control Natori din Allahu Allah rasool Allah who were Dharan aphylla For in Allah at the mercy anatomy and Coonan agilon of Lima, Allah Subhan Allah instructed the prophets of salaam to speak to his wives,

00:18:31--> 00:18:47

to give them a choice. If you wanted the pleasures of this life, the profit center would divorce you would divorce you and would give you financial some some kind of financial compensation where you can live with that and you know, be self sufficient.

00:18:48--> 00:19:16

But if you want Allah and His Messenger, that Allah you have to behave accordingly and the last panel to Allah has prepared a great reward for those who remain with the program. Obviously all of them chose the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Again, this was just an incident in the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam now around this time towards the end of the the year, not nine after he Jolla, the news arrives, some news arrives at the to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:19:17--> 00:19:34

that received the Kaaba all of a sudden the tribes of Hassan Al assassinate the Arabs in in a sham, the Arabs, the Arab tribes in a sham who were in a state of the who were Christians. And they were in a state of alliances with the visit the Byzantine Empire

00:19:38--> 00:19:42

they were actually now preparing to attack Medina

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

because the news I mean, this was the context. Now most of the Arabian Peninsula has become Muslim. They swore allegiance to the Prophet sallallahu sallam. You're talking about two superpowers at the time, Persian Empire and the Byzantine Empire and for so many centuries

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

because there was these were the dominant forces in the area. And sometimes the Byzantine Empire would actually overcome the Persian Empire to a point of, you know, going deep into a minor Asia.

00:20:13--> 00:20:32

And sometimes the, the Persian Empire would actually dominate to the point where they actually captured even Constantinople. So there was a fluctuation of power. But in the midst of this, the Arabs were just scattered tribes, they didn't really resemble any kind of power.

00:20:33--> 00:20:34

There was.

00:20:35--> 00:21:11

In Abyssinia, there was a strong kind of civilization of Empire, but it was not. It was not as dominant as these two superpowers. And for a good point portion of its history. It was aligned, although they were Christian. So sometimes they were aligned with with the Byzantines, and sometimes they were aligned with Persia, the Persian Empire reached Yemen and it reached Abyssinia as well. So when the Prophet SAW Selim, by the way, was born, you know, as Haberfield, the people of the elephant who came to destroy the Kaaba Abraham ashram was the leader, Abraham, Rama was one, he was the leader of the army,

00:21:12--> 00:21:22

the army, this army of Yemen, and Abby Senia. It was like it was a, like an army made of two of both of them. They were part of the army of,

00:21:23--> 00:21:27

of the Persian Empire, they were followers of the Persian Empire at the time.

00:21:28--> 00:21:29

So

00:21:30--> 00:21:44

again, so these are the two superpowers, if there is any rising power, they will take heat, and they will deal with it before it becomes a superpower. And that's what we have today. And that's what we had during, for example, the 70s and the 80s, when, during the Cold War,

00:21:47--> 00:22:23

any kind of nation that was actually a rising as a power would be dominated by any of those two superpowers at the time, it was the USA, on the one hand, and the Soviet Union, on the other hand, and still there is some kind of this kind of dichotomy, but it's not as balanced as it used to be. So we have the United States and the NATO. And, and it's a lot it's, you know, all the countries are its allies. And you have Russia. And it has changed from the Soviet Union in the sense that it has now joined forces in what they call the break.

00:22:24--> 00:23:03

What do you call it, the big group like Russia, China, Brazil, South Africa, I think these countries, it's more of an economic but still has politic political background. So there's always this kind of dichotomy between two superpowers. So any kind of rising power, it would withdraw attention, and it will definitely be taken out before it is given a chance to grow into a superpower. So it made sense that the Byzantines and the Christian Arabs actually wanted to deal with the Muslim sense. Now they're going to dominate the Arabian Peninsula, unify the Arabs for the first time in their history, unify them as a nation that would actually deal you know, that would

00:23:03--> 00:23:30

have would be one political entity, one religious political entity and one ethnic entity that adds more power to it. So it made sense. So the news arrived to the prophets of salaam that the Byzantines and the Massassi and the Arab Christians and a sham, we're actually preparing them preparing the army to invade the Arabian Peninsula, and specifically, Medina. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told the Muslims to get ready, and we know that

00:23:35--> 00:23:37

about two years before that, the Prophet sallahu wa salam

00:23:39--> 00:23:40

sent

00:23:42--> 00:23:48

the Muslims 200 Watts motor right across and sent 3000 Muslims

00:23:49--> 00:24:23

to motor to to a sham area, which is now very close to the Dead Sea Mater is to the south east of the Dead Sea. And so the 3000 Muslims went there and they they had to meet with 200,000 100,000 from the Christian Arabs and 100,000 from the Byzantine Empire. And Holloman will lead managed to withdraw very skillfully, with the least amount of casualties. So they withdraw. So again, there was all there was already some kind of friction with that side.

00:24:24--> 00:24:25

And the

00:24:26--> 00:25:00

the Byzantine Empire was the closest speaking physically to the Muslims. Still then the Persian Empire, not by a big margin, but still it was more accessible to to the Muslims. So the prophets of salaam decided since the news is arriving, and we don't want to be on the on the defensive. We don't want to be on the defensive. And obviously in the Strategies of War, it's a very, it's a very important choice to make whether you want to fight a defense

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

of war or an offensive war. There's many factors that play a role. And if you were to play defensive when you are supposed or when the situation calls for an offense offensive war, you're setting yourself at a great disadvantage. It's a great risk.

00:25:15--> 00:25:32

And so the Prophet since the prophets of salaam made his own calculations and assessment of the situation, and he realized, it's actually better to go on the offensive. So the Prophet Salam told the Muslims to get ready, told the Muslims to get ready. And he managed to put together

00:25:34--> 00:26:24

an army of 30,000 30,000. Now, Arabian Peninsula never heard of an army like this 30,000 probably the highest, the biggest number ever in the Arabian Peninsula has been 20,000, which was prepared by 35 Now wasn't from a thought if to fight back, Muhammad Solomon, the Muslims. Now this is 30,000. And it was taking place in the middle of the summer, extremely hot weather. And it was still a time of sort of like a partial famine and the Arabian Peninsula, the Muslims were not in a good shape, financially speaking, there, we're not in a good shape. Yet the prophets, Allah Salam told the Muslims to get ready. And usually the Prophet Salam would not disclose his destination, or where he

00:26:24--> 00:26:36

was, you know, marching to, he would not, it's only two times the prophets of salaam told the Muslims are disclosed beforehand, to the Muslims, where they were heading to. First one was referred to Haber.

00:26:38--> 00:26:48

Because the Prophet and Saddam was given a promise from Allah subhanaw taala, that this will be a victory, this will be a clear victory. So the Prophet Salam already told the Muslims, because the person would hide his destination,

00:26:49--> 00:27:15

as because he doesn't, he doesn't want the enemy to people to be prepared. He doesn't want to enemy the enemy to be prepared. And the second one is in the hazardous water book, this one where he's going to march to book is obviously now it's in north of South northern part of Saudi Arabia. It's right at the borders, between Arabia, what's called a Arabian peninsula and the Shem.

00:27:16--> 00:27:32

So as usually actually, it's a book and in most of the Islamic history was considered to be part of a shell, for most of the Islamic history was considered to be a shell. So it's actually right. It's this is this area, that's the borders between a sham and the Arabian

00:27:34--> 00:27:51

Peninsula. So So the Prophet Salam told the Muslims this time that we are marching forward to meet with the the Christian Arabs, the Hassan Sinha and the Byzantines, so you guys get ready and the reason he told them was because it required a lot of preparation

00:27:52--> 00:28:04

and required a lot of them they needed to know so they had to psychologically prepare themselves and they had to get ready in like in terms of equipment and physical preparation

00:28:12--> 00:28:39

so Allah subhanaw taala around that time, he revealed some of the verses in Surah to tilbyr where he says yeah, you are living in ermine, Ramallah comida de la la kumin Fierro feasability la he circled terminal or Ultron Behati duniya mein and Asherah thermometer hayati, duniya, harati, in Cali, are you who believe why? You know, why when when it is said to you, or when the call goes out for you to take part in.

00:28:40--> 00:28:45

In jihad for the sake of Allah, you will hold on to the Earth

00:28:46--> 00:29:25

are you pleased with this worldly life as opposed to the next life? Then Allah Subhan Allah says the beauty beauty of this life compared to the hereafter is small. It'll let him feel you added added an element where step dill Coleman or euro Comala turbo Rahu che Allahu Allah condition earlier, if you do not answer the call for for this for the war, Allah Spanish Allah will cause a punishment to befall you. And then he would replace you with people who are with another people and you would not harm Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and Allah is capable of everything. And this verse, By the way, it shows that

00:29:26--> 00:29:31

one of the main goals and wisdoms behind jihad. So jihad is not

00:29:33--> 00:29:33

a crusade

00:29:35--> 00:29:43

is not a holy war is not a holy war. Jihad was legislated in Islam first, first, for defense.

00:29:44--> 00:29:49

And that's the first form of jihad that was allowed for defense. Number two,

00:29:50--> 00:29:58

it's due to human nature. If the truth has no power to protect, it, has no power to protect it, then people would

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

have

00:30:00--> 00:30:40

Take advantage of that in the sense that people would first find it easy to attack the people of the truth and not value it. That's why Allah Subhan Allah says why a doula home master talk to a man or woman, rebuttal. Hi, Tori, Mona be here do Allahu Allah welcome and prepare for them wherever you are able to prepare with regards to equipment, and with regards to, for example, horses, whatever like equipment that you need, so that you send a message of fear, you strike the fear in the enemies and who are the enemies. The thing is, once you become a rising power, automatically, people will take a stance of enmity towards you. Like people have power.

00:30:42--> 00:30:58

People have power, because the moment the moment you are rising, you become a threat to them. It's like there's no neutrality here. There's no neutrality. So it's the nature of human beings, there will always be a struggle for power. So super powers will not allow a power to rise to challenge them

00:30:59--> 00:31:14

preemptively. They will destroy it. And that's why you find superpowers have tentacles in almost every country in the world. Why do you think why do you think us is going into every country? What do you think they have military bases everywhere? Why do you think they do this?

00:31:15--> 00:31:26

They want to make sure that they control the world? Why do you find the the American the American economy, generally speaking is almost in every country, and it has its own influence why?

00:31:27--> 00:31:44

It's a matter of power. Because as they say, in Arabic, if you're not a wolf, you'll be eaten by the wolves. You have to be strong to defend. And that's, that's, that's the reason why jihad is there. So first is for defense. Number two, it is for you to be a power because if you are not a power, you have no respect.

00:31:45--> 00:32:12

You have no respect people will step on you, people will not give you any weight if you don't have a power. That's the that's the language humans understand. And that's every I mean, all countries in the world know this. Why would countries invest so much? You know, for military equipment and for for warfare? Why would they do that, even though for sometimes decades, they won't get engaged in war? Why would they spend most of their

00:32:13--> 00:32:16

was GPA most of it, they would spend it

00:32:17--> 00:32:20

on weapons, and army why?

00:32:21--> 00:32:25

They know even if you're not engaging in war, the fact that you have a power

00:32:26--> 00:32:46

is a repellent to other nations that might actually have some kind of, of greed, or some have some kind of motives to to take advantage of you or attack you. So that's part of again, what jihad is. Third reason why there is jihad in Islam is that if you were to carry the message superpowers

00:32:47--> 00:33:05

would not allow you to do that. Generally speaking, they would stop you they will not allow you. So that's why it has to be carried it has to be protected by an army. Now, if there is a country like today, what countries open up to Islam, you want to give you a Dawa, you want to speak to people about Islam, you're free, the media is free, go ahead and speak about it.

00:33:07--> 00:33:13

The Muslims do not need to go in a military fashion into these countries.

00:33:14--> 00:33:36

The military is there to just to allow the Muslim call to go why? Because it's people's right to know the truth. And if there is some kind, and if you look reading in history, by the way, like today's the world that we live in today, politically, is drastically different from, from what it used humanity, the state of humanity, how it used to be,

00:33:37--> 00:33:43

it was drastically different. You could not go Now let's say a Muslim would go into

00:33:44--> 00:33:50

the Byzantine Empire and talk about Islam publicly, what would happen to that person?

00:33:54--> 00:34:00

That'd be executed straightaway. Why? Because that's considered to be an ideological attack.

00:34:02--> 00:34:44

You go into the Persian Empire, and you propagate Islam on to be executed. So how can we get this? How can we give this message which is a trust, hand it over to these people? People deserve to hear it. People deserve to know about it, people deserve to come face to face with it. But the political power refuses that. Why? Because they had a monopoly over people. That's how we used to be in the past these days is different. These days is different. So those who say that Muslims went, you know, across the world, whacking on people with this with their swords. That's not true. That's not true because they're we're living in a world made of wolves. And if you were not strong enough, you'd be

00:34:44--> 00:34:59

eaten by them. As simple as that. You could not spread the message you could not reach to the people. That's the reason. That's why the prophets Allah sent them send the messages and the letters to the kings and the emperors and he invited them to Islam and to allow the message of Islam

00:35:00--> 00:35:08

To enter and they they refused. You can't by the standards, those states at the time, they would not allow a different ideology

00:35:11--> 00:35:12

which was in the

00:35:13--> 00:35:13

can you

00:35:15--> 00:35:16

can tell them to come down.

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

There's no door

00:35:23--> 00:35:24

just like a rocket.

00:35:26--> 00:35:27

So.

00:35:28--> 00:35:41

So, again, sometimes, you know, we are trapped in our times. And by the way, this is a very The reason I'm spending a little bit more time here is that, no, there's a lot being said everywhere today about,

00:35:42--> 00:36:08

about jihad, that it's a crusade, it's a holy war. It's, it's forcing Islam by by you know by by by weapon and by power. That's not true at all. That's not true. The principle in Islam Allah claw have it been. There is no compulsion in religion. You can't you can't fight people to make them Muslim, you just can't. It's not of Islam. It's against Islam. It's against Islam.

00:36:09--> 00:36:30

But Islam is very practical. In the sense humans are humans. And humans is neat. And humans as nations and states and empires, they understand the language of power, if you do not have power, you're not taking seriously, you're not. And if you were to challenge other nations and other empires, ideologically,

00:36:31--> 00:37:03

and if they if they can overpower you, and they outnumber you, then they'll wipe you out. That's how it used to be. And that's how it is now, but the dynamics are slightly different. The dynamics are slightly different. So again, if a nation opens its borders to the Muslims, to speak about Islam and offer Islam to the people, there is no need for a Muslim army to, to, to go into that to go into that country. Now, a fourth reason why there is jihad.

00:37:04--> 00:37:07

Fourth reason is

00:37:08--> 00:37:11

to remove injustice, when there is oppression.

00:37:13--> 00:37:37

When there is oppression on the masses, and the Muslims have power, it becomes an obligation upon the Muslims to remove oppression. That's what Allah subhanaw taala says, Well, man, Allah Kamala to party you don't want if he said he Lilla Well, most of us well, most of our feet. I mean, when most of our feet I mean, originally when he said he will will done Alladhina coluna Rob banner, Regina, I mean, he he'll create your volume. Watch Alana Mila, don't call your watch.

00:37:39--> 00:37:57

Allah Subhan Allah says, Why don't you engage in, in the fight for the sake of Allah, when there are the men, the women, and the children who say, Oh, Allah save us from the oppression from this from this village, or from this country or from the state whose people are oppressive.

00:37:58--> 00:38:05

So these are the, these are the foundations and the goals and the purposes behind jihad in Islam, defense.

00:38:07--> 00:38:48

Number two, if you're not strong, you'll be eaten. So you have to, so you don't have to use that string about your strength, but you have to be prepared. And it sends a message. It's a psychological war, it's important. And by the way, like, we know this even on individual levels, you know, bullies who do bullies choose, they tell you bullies, choose specific types of people who won't resist, won't stand up for themselves. If a bully knows that you are going to stand up for yourself, they won't approach you. They won't approach you. The same applies to nations. So you need to you need to be strong. If you can't defend yourself, you'll be eaten. As simple as that. That's

00:38:48--> 00:39:01

the language of humanity. Make it as nice as you want. No humans are now civilized. Well, obviously humans are civilized. That's why for example, and the Soviet Union, as estimations are about 90 million people were killed

00:39:02--> 00:39:12

90 million people because they showed some kind of resistance or disagreement with with the government. At the time, in the early 20th century.

00:39:13--> 00:39:14

In China.

00:39:16--> 00:39:26

The same thing millions of people were killed. What happened in in, in World War One World War Two, how many millions were killed?

00:39:27--> 00:39:32

Oh, no, humans are civilized, right? How many people were killed in Iraq since the invasion of Iraq?

00:39:34--> 00:39:44

Humans are civilized, right? How many people were killed in Afghanistan? How many people are killed in Yemen? How many people are killed all around the world? How many people were killed in in Vietnam?

00:39:46--> 00:39:47

The Falkland Island.

00:39:50--> 00:39:58

Humans are humans. Humans are humans. They're going to still engage in war and power will be the language. Power will be the language

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

So jihad is there for Muslims too.

00:40:03--> 00:40:05

If you're not strong enough,

00:40:06--> 00:40:24

you know, you will not be able to defend yourself. That's number two. Number three, is to allow the Dawa to reach the people to reach the people. So if a political system does not allow the data to teach people again and they take a monopoly over what people believe,

00:40:25--> 00:40:26

then

00:40:28--> 00:40:34

okay, you need to approach you need to give these people the rights and the way to do this is to engage with this power

00:40:36--> 00:40:57

and the fourth reason is again to lift oppression when it's on people. But there is no there is no legislation there is no verse there's no Hadith there is nothing from the prophets of salaam that says, You force his people Islam on people or you force people into Islam by sword or, or you just take over countries like that. That's not how it goes.

00:40:58--> 00:41:05

And then any careful kind of, you know, investigation into the history of Islam these these four will become clear.

00:41:06--> 00:41:06

Okay,

00:41:07--> 00:41:43

so this was some kind of a digression, but I felt I felt it was, it was important. So then Allah Subhan Allah says to the believers in Latin Surah HuFa Karna, Salah, hola, hola javelina. Cafaro Thani if Nene the whole mouthful up, if the Buddhists are happy that has an in Allah Mohammed Erna Anza Allahu Sakina to Allah. He was a year that we'll be doing with the limited Raja Raja Allah Karim Atleti Anika Philosophia will carry me to La he'll raelia Will Allah Who as he is on Hakim, so Allah is saying, If you do not help and support the Prophet SAW Selim, then Allah will help him. Like it's doesn't like it doesn't depend on you. Allah will help him just as he helped him when he

00:41:44--> 00:41:58

migrated from Mecca when he was by himself and he only had one of his friends, which was the Allahu Allah, so put it in. So if you don't help him, now, Allah will help him it's not about like, it's not like Allah needs your help. But Allah wants to give you this privilege that you take part in it.

00:42:00--> 00:42:31

Again, the reason I made that digression as well, is for all of us as well that when you hear these lies, and these accusations, accusations against Islam, you know, don't swallow them. You need to be careful. Don't lead Don't let these blemish your your understanding of Islam and your appreciation of Islam. I know sometimes these are presented and we are attacked as Muslims, or that Islam is a military religion and Islam spread by the sword. But that's not true. Because a lot of the lands that were opened by the Muslims,

00:42:32--> 00:42:45

you will find a lot of their people actually remained in on their religion, like, look at just talking about Egypt's turnover about Egypt, there's a huge population of the Coptics. Right? They remained Christian, Orthodox Christians.

00:42:47--> 00:42:51

And actually, the Orthodox Christians were about to be annihilated by the

00:42:52--> 00:43:29

Beisa. I don't remember exactly. But by the Europeans in generally, because they think it was the Catholics, they wanted to annihilate the Orthodox. And it was when the Muslims came and took over Egypt, that the cops found relief. And they were they were they were allowed to stay on their religion and practice their religion safely. The same applies to a sham, a sham has a lot of Christian population. Still, these are the assassins, the Arabs, who will actually in how fighting the Prophet saw seven, there was still some of them are still there until until now they're still there.

00:43:30--> 00:43:32

I grew up in a city

00:43:33--> 00:43:54

where about 7% are Christian, like the neighborhood I grew up in was Christians, our neighbors were Christians. And, again, I just don't have as good. So there's a lot of the cities that actually there's Christians and a lot of those a lot of I mean, in Egypt, they're Orthodox, mainly in in a sham, the majority orthodox but there are some Catholics as well.

00:43:57--> 00:44:01

In Iraq, in Iraq, there's a lot of Christians the

00:44:02--> 00:44:17

call themselves I'll kill then a year or so many year in or Sirianni. In Syria, the Ashanti in the Syrians, the Assyrians, the Assyrians, they're still Christian, by the way, they still speak their languages, they still speak their language.

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

So again,

00:44:21--> 00:44:25

the Muslims also governed India for how long, so many centuries,

00:44:27--> 00:44:53

and the Hindus were still Hindus, so they were not forced into their religion. Again, so don't forget the the wisdoms and the reasons behind the legislation of jihad. The legislation of jihad is not to force Islam is not to spread Islam by the sword. There's nothing of the sort at all. All of this is a misreading of history. And obviously, it's not innocent. It's very like skillfully crafted.

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

Okay, the hypocrites as the as this call goes out, the hypocrites actually rushed to the Prophet

00:45:00--> 00:45:19

Selam saying, Oh no, it's summertime, it's too much and we can't do it. The Prophet Solomon did not accept their excuses but they said we want permission not to join you. The Prophet Salam said you don't want to join me you don't join me but excuses are not accepted. But they don't care for them as long as they are

00:45:20--> 00:45:59

allowed not not to do they just wanted to get this so basically the sort of embarrassed the prophets of salaam to this get this kind of of permission but the Muslims were actually getting ready to prepare themselves as well there was a shortage in resources. It was around this time again that Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu brought all his wealth to give it for the sake of preparing the army or Mahatma brought half his wealth and that's what I'm gonna recap said today I will do better than Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu. And then he came because he brought half of his money. He thought no one would do that. So when he brought it, the President asked him What did you leave? He said, I left

00:45:59--> 00:46:02

What did you leave for your family? He said I left half of it. I brought half and I left half.

00:46:03--> 00:46:22

Then Abu Bakr Golan who came and the Prophet Salam asked him What did you leave for your family? He said I left for them Allah and His messenger. So I'm gonna have to upset Allah I will never compete with you again like he couldn't catch up with Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu they're not the man I'm not I found on the light when I was probably among the richest among the companions of the Allahu anha.

00:46:29--> 00:46:31

The prophets of salaam gave a hot band he

00:46:32--> 00:46:44

urged the Muslims to support the army of man who are fans stood up and he said, I will donate 100 camels, full load full load of goods and and silver and gold and silver.

00:46:46--> 00:47:08

And he sat down and the prophecy was centimeters of the Muslims to give more of the man reference stands up again and he says another 100 with their full load. Then he sits down the proxy emerges the Muslims again. If my friend stands up again and he says another 100 camels that's 300 camels with full load to be given. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:47:09--> 00:47:20

Afterwards he says now I dealt with Man Man I mean, like there's no harm on Earth man he can do whatever he wants after this is sort of like guaranteed, he guaranteed

00:47:22--> 00:47:48

Jannah and the Prophet said in the Hadith manga has Adina deceleration Ursula Fela hula Jana. By the way, this battle was called the Battle of hardship or the expedition of hardship and rostra the word is Ursula in Arabic because of the extreme conditions in which it was conducted. The prophets of salaam says whoever has helped equip the army of the hard time which is in Oslo, this one then he is guaranteed Jana

00:47:52--> 00:47:56

Abdullah, as well he gave a lot for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala

00:47:59--> 00:48:00

I think he gave about a

00:48:02--> 00:48:06

$8,000 home which was a lot of money, it's a huge wealth.

00:48:07--> 00:48:19

And the company started to give whatever they had some of them brought their money some of them brought just a little bit of food, that's all they had they so they just brought it some of them brought some change. That's all their wealth at the time.

00:48:22--> 00:48:53

So when Abdullah moment, he brought his $8,000 home and he gave it to the prophets and salam, the hypocrites studying picking on them now that's what the hypocrites do. That's what the hypocrites do. It's all about for them. It's all about ridicule, several soul about killing the spirits of others, and appointing the themselves as judges. Usually, by the way, if you look around, people who appoint themselves as judges and police over people, specifically religiously, okay, advice, stay away from them. They're not good for your heart.

00:48:54--> 00:49:09

They're not good for your heart. The hypocrites are you are other typical, the typical people who do that kind of thing. So when I'm doing I don't know, I gave us 8000 dirhams the prophets of salaam they said Martha and her mother in law area and he made it to show off

00:49:11--> 00:49:13

so showing so he's showcasing

00:49:14--> 00:49:21

and then when one of the poorer companions came and he brought a little bit of food that was all he had. They said

00:49:22--> 00:49:24

look at like what he's bringing.

00:49:25--> 00:49:34

He's bringing for the army. What is this? Like? What is this going to do? This little food in his like a handful of food. Have Wait, what is this going to help an army with?

00:49:35--> 00:50:00

So Allah subhanaw taala then reveals about them and salted Toba again and Latina girl mizuna LaMotta we're in I mean, I mean I first saw the cartwheel leadin ally as you don't I love the home face hello and I'm in home session Allah Amina Mala home either one and even Allah says these are the ones who ridicule and pick on the ones the believers who give their sadaqa for the sake of Allah and who only who give the little that they have to give all the law

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

told that they have, so they make fun of them. Allah Subhana Allah says Allah will turn that fun against them. Allah will turn that ridicule against them, and Allah will give them a painful punishment. Some of the companions Radi Allahu Anhu came to the messenger Salam, they were extremely poor, like they were like they hit rock bottom, they had nothing, nothing. And when you talk about an expedition like this, in the middle of the summer, you needed a horse, a donkey and mule, a camel, anything, you couldn't just go on your feet, by the way, you couldn't out you would die you'd be you'd become a burden on the army. So especially if you are not physically strong. So there were

00:50:43--> 00:51:03

eight companions who came to the seven companions who came to the prophets of Allah when he was salam. And they said, O Messenger of Allah, we have nothing like we don't have a horse or a camel or anything like no writing animal. So you know, get us something so we can join you in the battle. The prophecy says the edgy Duma, Hamid O'Malley, I don't have anything to offer you I have nothing.

00:51:04--> 00:51:14

So they they started crying. Why? Because they felt so sad because they realize they would not be able to join the Prophet SAW Selim on this expedition.

00:51:16--> 00:51:47

So Allah subhanaw taala reveals the verses about them. Lord says when they said he went to la mala Island, Medina La Jolla to do when am I gonna halogen? In The Answer holy Allah He was surely mirallas Marcin in Amman servido Allahu wa foto Rahim, Allah says those who are weak, physically weak, and those who are ill, and those who don't have to the means to be able to join you. Then there is no harm on them. As long as they remain sincere. They remain sincere to Allah and His messenger.

00:51:48--> 00:52:03

Those are the ones who do those are the mezzanine. Those are the ones who have done their best Wallah who are four over here, there is no harm on them. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Well, I love the NEMA Allah Allah livina, Edina takealot

00:52:06--> 00:52:19

I wonder where are you going at them, he has an allergy to my own fake one. And there is no harm on those who when they came to you, so that you offer them a riding animal. You offer them a vehicle.

00:52:20--> 00:52:25

You said to them, let me do my family here, I don't have anything to offer, you don't have any back to offer you

00:52:27--> 00:52:41

to win. You don't have to fill them in at them. And he has an Alaia domain for whom they they left with their eyes full of tears out of the sadness that they could not have. They could not afford, you know, the animals that they could write on and join you.

00:52:42--> 00:53:04

And as they were leaving, some of the companies saw them crying and they asked them Why are you crying? Like a couple of them were seen by one of the answer. Why are you crying? They said that's the that's the story. So he said Come Come here. So he has a camera and he gives it to them He says you guys take it you can take turns on it. So they they turned they're very happy and they joined the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:53:23--> 00:54:00

I'm almost finished. I love the Allahu Anhu he says some of those companions who couldn't find a writing animal they approached them and they said why don't you ask the prophets of salaam maybe you could find us or some right we could find a some support. So we join him. So there was so keen to join the Prophet SAW Allah Salam again, the reason why the Muslims were so enthusiastic to join into something like this, is that again, it was not a war. There's no war of aggression like this in Islam, there's no war of aggression. So it was a noble cause. It's always about as we said, carrying the message, removing oppression and defending the truth that was all about it. So that's why

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

they're so keen to join the messenger of salsa. So

00:54:05--> 00:54:22

so a mimosa lashari carries their message to the prophets of Allah Salam and it seems also Sherry says for a fact to who was banned I came to the Prophet Solomon he was angry. And obviously the problem now was preparing the army he was too busy, too many things to do. And sometimes, you know,

00:54:23--> 00:54:33

it's interesting sometimes, like you're, you're frantically moving around to fix something and it's like an emergency, and then someone stops you and they want to have like a casual conversation with you.

00:54:35--> 00:54:42

You want to say this free manly like it's not a time leave me alone. You see me in a hurry. You see me in a hurry. Now no offense sometimes.

00:54:43--> 00:54:56

Like I when I give the hotbar and it's like, I realize I pushed it a little, a few minutes, a few minutes more and more people have to rush back to the work. So I'm rushing from here to to the room in the front to leave the Salah and I'm rushing to find someone

00:54:57--> 00:54:59

like in the hallway meets me Center.

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

Anybody can brother

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

Okay, so

00:55:04--> 00:55:11

I'll just keep going okay no time to shake hands and ask me How are you feeling this quickly so again like sometimes as well

00:55:13--> 00:55:30

again you just in a rush and so that someone catches you and they're so much at ease like so that is the one I have a casual conversation with you. So he came to the prophesied and probably at a time like this, he says, Oh, I've talked to the band well I didn't feel it I didn't could not read that.

00:55:32--> 00:55:37

So the prophets of salaam says hola hola Millicom Elashi the Prophet says will lie I'm not going to give you anything.

00:55:38--> 00:55:48

So the Prophet has expressed his state and that way okay well will lie I will not give you I will not offer you anything basically means like enough my like Stop nagging me.

00:55:50--> 00:56:01

So he goes back almost actually goes back to this group of people who could not have anything could not afford anything. He tells them that's what the prophets are seldom said to me.

00:56:03--> 00:56:12

Then he said sure, luck shortly after a man came and he says where is Abdullah? Abdullah? Is Abu Musab actually.

00:56:13--> 00:56:21

The prophets of salaam wants you he wants to talk to you. So I went to him the prophets of salaam said to me, he write two camels

00:56:25--> 00:56:29

take them and give them to your friends these people who don't have any writing animal.

00:56:32--> 00:56:58

So he takes them and he gives them to this group of of, of people. Then they thought to themselves, you know the prophets of salaam said what Allah He He said by Allah will not give you anything but now he gave us so he thought the problem. He swore by Allah subhanaw taala. So we don't want the person to break his oath. Let's go back to him and give camels back to the Prophet salallahu Salam. So they came to the Prophet salallahu Salam.

00:56:59--> 00:57:04

And they told him that you you made an oath. Did you forget the prophets of salaam says

00:57:06--> 00:57:32

it's not me who will get who gives you this it's Allah subhanho wa Taala who gives you these camels. And the Prophet says we're in New Allah healer actually for Allah Yameen in for Allah V la Hey La Mina in a T to let he let it to let the who hire what Halal program says if I like swear by Allah about something, then I find a better option. I will go back on this and I will exfoliate for it. So I will feed three poor people I will all fast three days.

00:57:33--> 00:57:49

So So that's actually a good sunnah, that even if you make an offer about something, and then you realize, okay, it wasn't a good choice. There's another choice, you can actually make an expiation for that and make and take the better choice. That's what the prophets of salaam used to do.

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

Okay,

00:58:02--> 00:58:20

so then some of the, some of the hypocrites again came to the Prophet Solomon, some of the Bedouins around the medina came to the Prophet sallahu Salam, and they started you know, presenting excuses as to why they can't join the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam, they were just above 80 people.

00:58:21--> 00:58:25

The prophets of salaam said I mean if you want to go go, don't join me.

00:58:26--> 00:58:57

Allah Subhana Allah then actually blames the prophets of Salaam for that. He says if Allah Who unclean I didn't tell her whom had Toyota but you know, like a Latina Sadako What are LML cara de bien la lie is that you know Kalinina meno nebula he will Yeoman alpha and uj dubium yd him one fusi him will la hora de mon Billy makan in Nam is that you know, kalorien Allah, Allah he will do me after he will turbot Kulu boom form theory behemoth or don't. Last one Allah says Allah has forgiven you, why did you give them Why did you let them go?

00:58:58--> 00:59:00

You should have held them accountable.

00:59:01--> 00:59:23

So that the the ones who are truthful would become known, and those the fake ones as well would be known. Then Allah says, Those who truly believe in Allah and the Last Day that would not seek permission to avoid such you know, such an opportunity to go for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and Allah truly knows. The ones who are McLaughlin who have Taqwa.

00:59:24--> 00:59:41

Indeed the ones who seek permission not to take part in. In such expeditions are the ones who don't believe in Allah and the Last Day and their hearts are unsure the hearts have doubts. So thus they are troubled by their their doubts.

00:59:45--> 00:59:47

Okay, so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:59:48--> 00:59:50

gets the Muslims

00:59:52--> 00:59:53

to be ready

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

to the to the to the north.

01:00:00--> 01:00:15

He taught to get them to the north of Medina. You were gonna come to this the details, but there was some of the hypocrites that had some kind of an interesting response when the prophets of salaam let the call go out to join him in this in this expedition.

01:00:18--> 01:00:21

So some of them said

01:00:23--> 01:00:31

Latin fear or Philhealth they said to the believers, would you, you know go out to fight in the midst of all this heat and

01:00:33--> 01:00:53

obey human capital the Allahu anhu, one of the companions, he says when he describes that story of the expedition of Tabuk, he actually says it was a very hot here, it was a very hot summer was extremely hot summer and that's why it was called El rasa. Because what will Austro the expedition or the heart or challenging expedition?

01:00:59--> 01:01:21

One of the hypocrites and his name is a legit WPS a legit device. Now, we mentioned that the monopolist by the way, previously, if you guys remember, in Saudi Arabia, on the proximity to make a home run with the companions, and what he decided not to let them in. The Prophet SAW Salem had the BIA from the believers who were with him.

01:01:23--> 01:01:34

That in case there was a fight that they would actually stand up for themselves and for Islam, and the give the bear except for one person who was hiding behind his camera. And his problem called him so I will geminal

01:01:35--> 01:01:50

the man of the who the owner of the red camo. He was hiding behind it. He didn't want to shake the hand of the Prophet salsa. He didn't want to give him the beer. This is the same guy. It is the same guy who did the blackface is from Ben who selima. He actually used to be their leader.

01:01:52--> 01:01:54

The prophets of salaam says to him

01:01:57--> 01:02:12

yeah, just like a lamb of God been in us for he said he problem says to him, we're going to fight with the Romans been on us for so the Arabs used to call them the yellow race due to their blond hair, the yellow race okay

01:02:15--> 01:02:22

so algid responded to the province of salami he says you know, you give me excuse and don't expose me to fitna

01:02:25--> 01:02:48

So in he says, For wala halacha Alpha oh me and no ma'am and Julian B. I should be I should be I should be Nisa. Eman. Me. We're in the Akshaya and what a 2017 us fall under us. But he says give me excuse I don't want to join you because I don't want to put myself in fitna again like fiddling. He says, Why? Because my people know that.

01:02:49--> 01:02:51

I am mad about women.

01:02:52--> 01:03:01

And I don't want to be exposed to the women of the Europeans. I won't be able to resist. That was this excuse.

01:03:02--> 01:03:04

The Prophet Salam turns away from him.

01:03:06--> 01:03:40

Problem says you want to stay back, stay back. But Allah subhanaw taala reveals a verse about him. He says woman Hama yaku then Lee whether Tiffany Allah Phil fitternity circuito in a Johanna Mala Mojito, tumble caffeine. Some of them say you know give me permission to stay and do not expose me to fitna Allah subhanaw taala says here indeed in the fitna, they have fallen they have actually fallen in the fitness that's the fitness or in the Johanna mela Mojito timber Catherine and Johanna will actually surround those who this belief

01:03:44--> 01:04:10

so a lot of the hypocrites went around among the Muslims and they were saying saying to them Do you think that these the you know the Byzantines are like the Arabs they said all your fights with the Arabs well just play were a joke. These are like you now you're dealing with a professional army you guys you like Houston no chances in dealing with those with those people. So this spread tried to spread this around

01:04:11--> 01:04:16

among the among the Muslims in order to try to destroy their spirits

01:04:23--> 01:04:28

and by the way, it was around this time as well, where the hypocrites built a masjid.

01:04:30--> 01:04:31

The hypocrites built a masjid.

01:04:33--> 01:04:35

Why did they build it? Because

01:04:37--> 01:04:39

there was progress on the work.

01:04:40--> 01:04:59

So they were getting to know each other. They were building more teamwork among themselves. And they were getting close to each other. So they wanted to take their work to the next level. So they needed a base to function from to work from. So they decided to build a masjid build the masjid

01:05:00--> 01:05:08

and it will become their base. And they will start planning from there conspiring from there. But they had to give it the guise of a masjid.

01:05:11--> 01:05:24

And they, like they said, we build this message because the message of the Prophet is far and it's hard for the people have this area to go there. So they would make a masjid and people here would come and pray would make it easy for them.

01:05:26--> 01:05:42

And Allah subhanaw taala knew that they were actually going to use it against Islam and against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So Allah, Allah commands, the Prophet SAW Selim to destroy it, and the messenger of Solomon goes through it and burns it. So you will find sometimes the proximal the hypocrites, he would let them go.

01:05:44--> 01:06:19

And assessment of the situation, remember what he said what he did with little Hoysala amount of upset, let me chop off his head. Let me kill him. The problem said Leave him I don't want people to say Mohammed is killing his companions. Because again, not everyone knows who the hypocrites are, most people don't know, because these people blended into the companions of the Prophet SAW Salem. And then it would spread around that Muhammad is killing his companions, in the sense that if Mohammed has a suspicion about you might be a hypocrite, he's gonna kill you. So why join him in the first place? I don't know. Because it's all suspicion, right? Maybe he'll have doubts about Me, then

01:06:19--> 01:07:01

he'll kill me. So that's what the Prophet and Saddam was concerned about. So he let him go, although he was going to make a lot of damage. Also, Abdullah Abdullah obey even a salute he was he already created so much damage, he had the Prophet Salim let him go. But now it was, it's been taken to the next level. Now these people are actually creating a base calling it a masjid. Again, the creating a group. Now, the prophet Salam realized now, the danger of this is far greater than any news would spread around, we have to deal with now this is getting out of hand, we need to deal with it. That's also this also shows the the very precise distinction The problem could make about each case. But he

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

realized this is not this is not something that we can allow to happen.

01:07:07--> 01:07:12

Again, so again, this shows the shows the importance of,

01:07:13--> 01:07:26

again, following a differentiated approach to things a very nuanced approach to situations. Sometimes you might let some mistakes go without making comments. But sometimes you will have to point them out.

01:07:28--> 01:08:11

For for an external observer or an outside observer, they might say, well, both situations are similar. No, my assessment of this is different. I can see something different here. And again, that's what actually differentiates good leaders, from you know, robotic managers, for managers, every situation is just the same. And they have this kind of one approach that they with which they handle every situation, but what gives leadership their leaders their advantages that they actually they respond to every situation as it is the understanding as organic such situation, they read it very well, then they respond to all the specifics of the situation.

01:08:12--> 01:08:29

And that makes them very effective. And the Prophet SAW Selim was like this. So he, the person could read into creating a masjid as a base for the hypocrites. That's going to really this is, I mean, this is a serious development in this situation, or we can't allow for this to happen. So the prophets of salaam burnt down.

01:08:30--> 01:08:36

The prophets of Salaam, burned that masjid, down we're going to stop here in sha Allah.

01:08:37--> 01:08:54

Allah and we'll carry on next week. Just reminder next week, sorry, next week, Asia will be at eight so we no longer having a shot on Friday at 730 because it shares getting late. So inshallah it will be late then we'll have the Halacha afterwards we can take we can take a couple of questions.

01:08:56--> 01:08:56

Do you guys have any?

01:09:07--> 01:09:23

expiation have an oath of yeah, you have a choice. So the majority of the scholars you have a choice whether to feed three people fast three days or free three slaves if there are slaves. You have a choice. I left here Yeah.

01:09:25--> 01:09:33

So there's no order like if you can't do this, you do that right. With the oath. No, it's any option you pick works in Charlotte.

01:09:39--> 01:09:51

We look at the verse fasea Muthana 30 Am it says fast in three days? Does it say consecutive? Doesn't say so. We don't add anything from ourselves. Yeah, so shouldn't be consecutive. I mean, you can make them consecutive but you don't have to

01:09:55--> 01:09:56

know more questions.

01:10:05--> 01:10:20

If you join an imam in JAMA, you join the Imam is on record and you catch the record. How do you catch the record? You go into the court and you're there fully in the stay in the position of record when the Imam is still there.

01:10:23--> 01:10:50

And you have, let's say almost a seconder. The Scholars say if you go into court, you establish yourself in that position of record and you say subhanallah Bill alim. Oh, that time if that time lapses, which is enough to say subhanallah building which is even probably less than than a second or a second, then you have quote, record. But if you go down to record the moment you went down for a court, you heard the Imam saying Say Allah Muhammad that you haven't caught record.

01:10:51--> 01:11:15

So catch it, it means you managed to go into court and take that at least one second or maybe slightly less than a second to that establish yourself this course called the stoma Nina a level of Tamar Nina, the basic level of menina before the Imam says semi Allah Allah Muhammad, if he says him Allah, Allah even him that before that you didn't catch record, so you repeat that record.

01:11:17--> 01:11:44

But if you catch it this way, this rock accounts for you. So you have caught up with this rock out with the man. But there is a mistake, common mistake people do when you come and you want to join the gym or whether the Imam is in any state but usually in record because people are in a rush, they want to catch the record. You have to make the purity haram first you have stand up in the lines as you say Allahu Akbar, you start to committed to the Haram Allahu Akbar.

01:11:45--> 01:11:54

Then you might go to Kabira for record. Allahu Akbar second record, second tributyltin you go for record? Usually people do what

01:11:55--> 01:12:02

common mistakes people first do. Allahu Akbar. Then they go for record. What did they miss? They missed the copyrights and interCall, which is a distributor for record.

01:12:04--> 01:12:16

Reward, less reward. You miss something in your Salah. Okay, number one. And another serious mistake is people out of a rush they say Allahu Akbar when they are on the way to record.

01:12:18--> 01:12:27

The problem with this that comparatively Haram is gone. So your Salah might be invalid. Why? Because they're committed to the harm, you have to do it when you're fully straight standing up straight.

01:12:28--> 01:12:29

Allahu Akbar.

01:12:31--> 01:12:34

So when a man say the man on record, you you will catch up with the line.

01:12:35--> 01:12:37

Allahu Akbar,

01:12:38--> 01:12:44

Allahu Akbar, the new buffalo. That's how you should do it. And if you catch the record, you establish yourself in the position

01:12:46--> 01:12:50

and you get this short moment where it's enough to say subhanallah Aleem.

01:12:51--> 01:12:59

Before the Imam says semi Allahumma Hamidah you will have managed to catch the slug. If not, then repeat the slug. You'll make it up later on.

01:13:00--> 01:13:10

You'll make up something could be beneficial. But here I think you can't do it here in this Masjid is when the gate of the masjid is at the end at there at the back.

01:13:12--> 01:13:23

Like some massage you enter from there. Right and the Qibla is here. So there was one companion to the Allahu Anhu he came to the masjid of the Prophet SAW Salem. When he entered the masjid they were on record.

01:13:25--> 01:13:35

Programming the command word and record. So when you said Allahu Akbar as he's walking towards the line, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, he went for a coup and he's walking.

01:13:36--> 01:13:38

And he's walking till he joined the line.

01:13:40--> 01:13:43

There when he finished his salah, he told the prophet saw Salem, I did this.

01:13:45--> 01:13:46

So the prophets of salaam said

01:13:52--> 01:14:01

it's been enough for me, it's been up for you, it counts for you. But the prophets have said something. He said a word. And interestingly, the scholars of Hadith

01:14:03--> 01:14:10

you know, in Arabic, there's hella cats. There's hella cat. And if you change your Holika, you could change the whole word. So the prophets of salaam

01:14:11--> 01:14:13

says okay, this is how the scholars

01:14:16--> 01:14:20

said the helicopter actually so there was a difference among the scholars one of them says

01:14:23--> 01:14:26

Atka our sub ta wala to eight,

01:14:27--> 01:14:35

layer to eight. Do not repeat LA to do not repeat. Don't repeat yourself. Don't repeat the rakhi accounts for you.

01:14:36--> 01:14:39

Some of them said no, it's not led to its last titled.

01:14:40--> 01:14:47

Change over hon halacha. Right. One Holika Kassala became dama la Turid.

01:14:48--> 01:14:55

Oh, let out. Sorry. The first one that led to a second one that are owed that are owed means don't do it again.

01:14:57--> 01:14:59

Don't do it again. Don't do it again.

01:15:00--> 01:15:01

Third one, let's do.

01:15:03--> 01:15:43

Let's do, let's do here, which is the demo, the customer comes to cone. So basically some of them say, Do not rush or run as you're doing that. And some of them say you do it when there's a need, but you're not overuse that. Do not overuse that. So the scholars have deferred those who say it is led to it, they say you can do it. Why? Because prophecies are meant, you do not repeat the rocker accounts for you, the scholars who said know what the proper pronunciation of the word is actually Lautaro do not do that again. So they say you can't do it. It was just for that person in that incident, and you shouldn't do it again.

01:15:44--> 01:15:53

And the third ones, they say, you can do it but do not rush as you're doing it, you know, run as you're doing it to catch the line. Or they say

01:15:55--> 01:16:05

do not overuse that. Do not overuse that. So which one to follow. Requires investigation. I hope you don't get yourself in that position anyway.

01:16:07--> 01:16:08

Okay. By

01:16:09--> 01:16:14

Hollis, we'll see in Charlotte next next week. Zachman offenen, for your attendance question.

01:16:16--> 01:16:16

01:16:21--> 01:16:27

Yes, we'll come to that. We'll come to that job. Come to them by observing lacasa Mr. Mohammed Williams.
