nabina Muhammad Allah Allah Allah He was happy he would have been a woman to be on BSN and Elijah Medina we're back.
We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah bless him, and all his household, his companions, all those who have struggled and strived to protect the deen from the very beginning in a way that today it has got to us and May Allah make us from amongst those who can preserve it, and who can teach it to our children and others in a way that inshallah our offspring will be protected and guarded, and in a way that we can be used for the pleasure of the Almighty rather than in the transgression of the Almighty. I mean, beloved brothers and sisters, this evening, we will require a lot of concentration, because we are
going through one of the most important incidents that occurred in the history of Islam. And this is the first major battle that took place between the Muslims and those who had oppressed them for so many years. And as we had said, from the moment of Revelation, 14 years later, to the day, is when the Battle of butter took place. So if we say revelation was on the 17th of Ramadan, we find this the 17th of Ramadan, the Battle of butter took place, may Allah subhanahu Allah grant us protection, remember, oppression will not last forever. Those who oppress one day they will have to pay and one day they will be within the clutches of the same people whom they have oppressed. And this is the
sooner This is the system of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, may Allah protect us from oppression and May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those who can be concerned about our own weaknesses. And if we want to concern in the lives of others, it should be how to uplift them, rather than how to drop them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us, as we had made mention of there was the Battle of the last era where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had heard that Abu sufian, who was one of the leaders of Piraeus had taken a lot of the wealth of Quraysh the wealth of the Muslims as well, who had left Makkah to Makkah Rama. There was a time when the co founder of
Quraysh had usurped the wealth of the Muslims and anything that they left behind. They put it together, they made up these caravans, and they went in order to deal with the people in a sham or the city in the region, which includes Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, that entire region in the northern part of the Arabian Peninsula. So when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam heard of this, he went out with many of his companions, and they tried to get hold of the caravan of Abu sufian and they only found that they had missed it and it had gone up already. So he returned to Madina, munawwara After some time, and he started planning, and the planning was from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah,
because Allah subhana wa tada what Allah had already informed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we will grant you victory. We will grant you one of the two victories so either you will have the caravan or you will be victorious over Quraysh this was a promise by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So what had happened? Amazingly, it was a blessing that that caravan had passed. After some time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to one or two other places with a few of his men, and the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu were not made aware of the fact that an army was being prepared to get the same caravan on its way back. They were not told the details. And this was one of the beauties of
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam system and style which was divine given by Allah subhanho wa Taala. He did not use to inform the people of the details because it would be very easy for people to find out. If I were to keep it within myself. I know no one knows. The minute I trust the person with it. Perhaps many others would know. Well nowadays we have a sickness you know when someone tells you something, when you really want the news to fly, tell them don't tell anyone. That little statement. Don't tell anyone what it does is it makes us each to tell someone and when we tell someone we have a password, what's the password? Don't tell anyone and then we tell them and they go
and tell the whole world knows and everyone is saying don't tell anyone but may Allah subhanahu Allah safeguard us. Look at how we have degenerated The best thing if you don't want people to know Do not tell anyone. May Allah subhana wa tada grant is goodness. And May He grant us a lesson. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began to prepare and as they left al Madina munawwara they were three
117 men according to the majority of narrations, some take it a little bit higher to 340 and some drop it to 311. We would stick to the integration that is most common 313 men Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went with them. Now, one might ask why is there a discrepancy in the figure? It's very simple, because when they initially went, they were quite a few, they were perhaps up to 340. But when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam got to a place known as beta sukiya, just outside Medina to munawwara. He stopped and the army camped there for a while. And as we mentioned yesterday, he vetted the people one by one, and he sent people back to Madina, munawwara who were
not fit to join him because they were too young perhaps, or because they had other duties in Medina, or because he wanted them to fulfill something in Medina tomonaga. The example we cited was that of Roseman abney a founder of the Allahu anhu, he wanted to go out the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him, your wife is ill, and sick Rukia Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, she is not well, you go back, and you will have a full reward of every one of us that goes out. And on top of that, whatever the outcome is, you will be granted a full status of a person who took part in in whatever we are going to take part in. And this is why if you open the sohae of amendment Buhari,
and you find the names which are written of the people of whether he makes mention of asthma and apnea, a fan of the Allahu anhu although physically he was not there, that is because he was told that you will be considered as one of them. So Panama. So this we learned a great lesson from because we need to realize that sometimes there are certain things we have to take care of. At that time, it was not compulsory for them to have come out because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam made a voluntary announcement, whoever wants to come out with us, we have this something we'd like to do inshallah. And so and they knew that they went out on escapades, little platoons little
reconnaissance missions, as we made mention of together a little bit of intelligence and so on. So had they known that it was going to end in a full fledged battle, they would have been no body or very few in Madina munawwara but Allah subhanho wa Taala has planned. So these 313 they had left when they left, they got to a certain point, as we said, and this was a place known as beta soupier. Just outside Madina, munawwara as they camped there the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent two men go and find out how far these people are who the caravan of Abu sufian returning from a sham. So the two who palha ignore obey the law, the long run and sad side of the law. And these two, they had
gone out and they saw this caravan, they sent back a message to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But Abu sufian had seen them and koresh was already very wary because they had had previous caravans where they had skirmishes with the Muslims, we made mention of them. This was not the first time they were worried. They were concerned. And Abu sufian was extremely intelligent, a very, very wise young men, not as old as Abu Jamal and the others, he was wise, very intelligent.
What he did is, he understood that there are people spying here on us, and he realized that these people are from Medina, how did he pick it up? Look at the narrations, the intelligence of these people, very sharp people, he looked at the droppings of the camel and he studied the droppings of the camel. And he saw in it that the fodder that these camels have been fed with is only from Medina cannot be from anywhere else amazing, because they had in it some of whatever, you know was only in Madina munawwara to produce the leaves of the palm and so on, which you could not find anywhere else intelligent men, and he knew that now there is a problem. So, what he did was also he began the
first thing that he started to do was he told his people we are very few in number, the best bet is to change our path, we change the road. So instead of going close to Medina and as we are passing we will, you know, use the normal road, we rather go on the difficult road and defer the road which is closer to the coast. So by that time, no one will be able to get to us and we will have conned them in the sense that they will come for us they will miss us completely. In the meantime, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who was informed that look, we have seen these people and you can proceed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam began to proceed.
And very importantly, with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. As we said, Only 313 people are
He had vetted whoever needed vetting and so on. And from amongst them, they had only two horsemen. Only two horsemen. And this is something amazing, the two horsemen as debatable
these were the two horsemen, only two, and they had 70 camels with them, which were being made use of. They were sharing the camels. So one would ride two would walk, then from the two who walked one would ride and the other two would walk, and they continued in that way, they shared it so much so that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself also shared the camels, not that he was the leader. So he just sat on one No, he sat on it, after some time he gave the chance to allow the allow and who was with him and so on one duration says Abu Baba was with them, and he gave the chance to Abu Baba and so on. As for Abu Baba Helen, sorry,
when it came to
a place known as Aloha, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent him back to Madina. munawwara For what reason?
as follows when they were leaving Madina, munawwara the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left Abdullah Al Maktoum, the blind companion or be alone and in charge of salah and in charge of Medina. So he was basically responsible for what went on. But as they got to Aroha the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent back Abu Baba and said you will be the amine in Medina, for as long as I'm away in this particular
escapade or in this journey. So Abu Baba and Ansari are the Allahu anhu he had gone back. In fact, this was Abu Baba ibn Abdullah Mundi, that was the one who went back and he was the one who was responsible in Madina munawwara during the absence of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. On that occasion, now, as they had gone, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam divided the army into two major divisions, one was the answer, headed by the Allahu anhu. He was given a flag, the color of the flag was black, and the other was a diploma on the other side, who was the leader of the answer? So Mahajan on one side led by Ali or the yellow, and the answer on the other side led by a
diploma, and the two of them had black flags. And as for the general flag for all the Muslims together as an entire army, it was given too much abnormal for the Allahu anhu. And it was a white flag. As you know, we learned yesterday that the flag for the general army was always white, why the black ones was to distinguish between the different battalions within the same army. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us a deep understanding. Then on the right side of the army, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam put his debate even in a worm, who was in the front with his horse, he had a horse, and on the left side, he put on his dad,
who also had a horse. So these two horsemen were placed on either side of the army, and with those who were on foot, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam put pace.
And the army progressed slowly but surely, they had with them, those who would provide food and so on, and they ate from amongst the camels that they had, they would slaughter and so on, this was the norm at the time, and they slowly progressed to handle law. In the meantime, you find Abu sufian very, very intelligently sent a message to koresh. What was the message? You see this caravan, all the leaders of Quraysh had had their loot in it, and they had sent Abu sufian with it going up to a sham. So he sent a message to say your peoples containers are at stake. I'm using today's terminology. You see today you have a big container coming. And when someone says there's a problem
with your container, ask the business people how they cannot sleep mela safeguard us. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness, imagine all the wealth of all these people. And what happens? It is now at stake from whom from Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his companions. But the Muslims were not looters. They were not people who were oppressed, they were going to get back their rightful property which was usurped from them in Makkah, we need to get this straight. Sometimes on a global level, the non Muslims make it seem like the Muslims were greedy to fight or they really wanted all the loot and so on. It wasn't the case. These people were persecuted and killed for 14
years. their wealth was taken from them everything you said that same wealth, the property and so on was used now in order for these people to become richer, that wealth belong to us. So Hannah law, nothing wrong. I'm going to get it even if it means to
fight in order to get it back. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deeper understanding. So, the people of Quraysh they were very, very upset, very angry Abuja Hall and the lights made an announcement. And the announcement was, come on, let's go out and protect our property number one. Number two is we can go out with so much power that we will just destroy Mohammed and his companions all at once.
Abu sufian already had had because now he sent his spies and he found out figures, he found out where they were, he found out the movements and so on. He knew exactly what was going on. What type of weaponry these people had, where they were, what were everything he had found out, he had figured it out, because the people of Quraysh were warriors. They used to fight anyway. But as for Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam he was not a warrior and a fighter No, he was made to go out to defend and that is when he became the best of the lot because from Allah subhanho wa Taala divine revelation, he knew exactly what to do. So Allah Allah He was alone. So
the people of courage came, how many of them when they left, it is reported they were 1300 strong men. When they left Makkah the number dwindled. It came down, we'll explain how it came down. But when they left, they were strong men from amongst them, they say 1000 horses, and here we only had two horses Subhanallah and they were well equipped. Abuja was so excited he said, we will go to better and we will camp there because as it is, it's more like a holiday spot. They were going to take young girls and women were going to take alcohol, we will party they will wait for these people. When they come we will finish them up and we will sort them out.
They were going to have a party because to them. It was a superpower against a force similar to the Goliath David scenario of many years ago. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant has a deeper understanding that would enter his salatu salam. Allah says come in FY 18, kalila teen Allah but fy 18 Kathy Ratan Linda, how many armies who that was smaller have overcome armies that were huge by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So these people had gone in a great number.
When Abu sufian was safe, he sent another message to Quraysh as they left, what was the message? Now you people can stay and you people can go back? Because we are now safe and your property is safe. So it was good enough for them to say okay, property is safe, let's go back to Makkah. But no, they prepared so much. They had pride they had this routine as we want to wipe out these Muslims and we must sort them out and allow wanted something to come to pass as we will see. So now a Buddha says No, we are not going to go back. But a few of the people decided no we want to go back there is no point now in fighting. So if we take a look Banjara they had came back they had returned. So the
numbers became smaller of the disbelievers. And from the very beginning, Abu lahab was one of them who could not go what had happened all the leaders came out Abu Jamal came out by vanilla BIA shape Abner BIA. A lot of these top people almost all of them came out the leaders of correction because they were so excited we're going to wipe out the Muslims and those who could not make it they sent their family members and kith and kin to come out on their behalf such as a Buddha, he couldn't make it on his own. And the Buddha fell very sick at some stage. May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us a lesson. He was the one who used to throw
dirt upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he lost his health. May Allah subhanahu wa taala safeguard us? Really, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us purity and to make us not from amongst those who bless him, to make us not from amongst those who earn the Wrath of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We are fortunate that knowledge is very easy nowadays. It's at our fingertips. It's not difficult to learn as it was many many years ago. Because today we have access not only to the internet, but to people. If you want someone to speak to them live, you don't need to travel for eight days in 16 days, you can pick up a telephone today. You can fly in eight hours and you can get
to any one on the globe to find out still we are lazy. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us earn the knowledge of Deen and may He make us from those who understand and realize through the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So a Buddha he didn't come and there was a claim that did not attend at all. They just refuse. They said, Look, we're not interested in fighting from the very beginning. So now but what it was behind in Makkah, Abu lahab was behind in Makkah, and now they decided to go back after abuse.
sent the second note and the second letter. However,
when Quraysh got close to better, they were insisting on war. We want to fight these people. Now it's no longer about the caravan. The caravan is gone, it's fast, it's safe. Now it's about these people we want to fight them. Now, Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam did not want to fight, when he came out of Mecca of Madina munawwara he intended the caravan, he did not intend a war. So what he did is he started asking the opinion of his companions. What do you think? Should we fight these people? And obviously, there were two opinions because those who said we should not fight them. They will only concern that look, we are not heavily armed. We came out with just a few weapons, each one of
us has a sword we have a limited number of bows and arrows. And at the same time, we came for a caravan which had in it, just a few number of a few people. And now we are going to face the superpower of the time and we are so small in number so it's not like they wanted to run away. But they were putting forward a case to say it's not going to be worth it fighting. However, Subhana Allah, listen to what I'll make the decision as to what are the Allahu anhu says he was one of the men on the horse. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, should we go and fight these people or not? He says, Oh messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we are not going to give you the
answer that he gave the Prophet Moses Mousavi salatu wa sallam, when they told him if
Tara buka Tina in una casa de Dune go you and you're up and go and fight. We are sitting in waiting here. We are going to say we will come with you and we will fight the decision is yours. You make a decision we are with you. So Panama. So this was the difference. the companions of the Prophet Musa Allah is Salatu was Salam. They told him you go and fight. We waiting here. We don't want to tackle these Shabaab era. And these tyrants,
you and your Lord, the two of you can go are also been solved that it says we will not say that we are going to say the decision is yours. We are with you go and we have the right behind you. So Panama, then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam turns to the unsolved. Why did he turn to the answer? It's important to seek the opinion of those who are those who are going to fight if we want to engage in a war, you need their opinion, not like today, man makes a decision. The people on the ground have no say whatsoever. Half of them are so innocent. They don't even know why. Like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says they will come a time lie to FEMA tell. Well, MK two lofi
makuti. They will come a time when the killer doesn't know why he is killing and the one who is made it won't know why he was murdered. Go and ask the armies doing their rounds on the globe. Why are you doing this? They say I don't know. We don't know. And ask the people who are killed. Why are you being killed? They say we don't know. We don't know. That is a prophecy of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said the time will come when people won't even know why they're doing what they're doing, but they will be spreading corruption across the earth. May Allah safeguard us. As for the Muslims, they sought the opinion of one another, even Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
although the instruction was his and Allah had already revealed to him but in order for us all to learn a lesson as to the importance of seeking opinion. He asked the Maha Genie, and he asked the answer. As for the answer, it was because he had a treaty with them to protect him in Medina, but he didn't have a treaty with them that they would protect him elsewhere outside of Madina munawwara it was important that he asked him the question, look, we are now heading for better. Is it possible that you people would like to fight with us, and Sadiq Newmar the head of a house we mentioned his name so many times the one who accepted Islam at the hands of Musab nama rhodiola Juan Sadiq.
numerosas Yeah, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
you came to us we believed in you. We believe you're the messenger. We believe you are our leader. We have obeyed your instructions. We will continue obeying your instructions. You tell us what to do. Even if you take us and instruct us to dive into the ocean we will die straight after you. So Panama. Tell us whatever you want, we are with you. So what happened that gave strength to the rest of them? And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about this in the Quran. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about how it would have been good if the Muslims had had the caravan, which was the easier one. But Allah says we wanted something to happen. And Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about this so
beautifully. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was favored. And Allah says,
Leah co de la
Oh This was in order for Allah to make to pass that which was meant to come to pass Subhana Allah. Allah says, Whatever Dona Ana Vanya, Radha, Tisha kita Kula come the beginning of that verse.
What if you're a to como la who is

Kabhi calima t yakata b1 caffine when Allah had promised you that you will definitely be victorious over one of the two armies you had intended you had hoped that the easier one be yours, which means those who are with the caravan small in number, you were hoping that that would have been the one that Allah subhanho wa Taala had meant when he promised you one of the two, but Allah says, But Allah intended for you to go for the big one, because he wanted to cut off the backs of the disbelievers May Allah Subhana Allah to Allah protectors.
Amazing. So this was Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is why Allah says gamma Raja Cara buka at Capital health co well in a very calm mini mini in Allah carry
on, just as Allah removes you from your house in Medina to go out. Allah is the one who took them out to go to the Battle of butter. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and then you found that some of the believers were not really willing to fight when when they were asked, Do you not want to fight to go back? As I told you they were two opinions. They did not say we are not willing to fight because they didn't want to obey the instruction. If the instruction came, they would obeyed but they will ask for their opinion. And all they said is we don't think it's a good idea because we are not as well equipped as the others.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala says yuja de Luna caffeine Happy Birthday Matata Ian
eusa una mattina whom you owe on the arguing with you about the truth after it is made clear to them as though they are being driven to their death once they are watching. Look at the words of the Quran.
Nobody's driving anyone to their to their death. But it's Allah subhanho wa Taala they came after that the instruction of Allah to proceed to bundle everything was over. Lo Akbar May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us goodness, all of them proceeded. Unlike the disbelievers. When the letter came, some of them went back with the mean when the instruction came 313 of them, they arrived, and they emerge with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he got there. And as we made mention of what happened with Sadiq, Noir, then
the Allahu anhu, giving the the backup and making statements that really empowered everyone that made them feel very high in morale. Because obviously, when your leaders are saying, Let's go everyone else who is lower down feels very high. But if the leaders were slack and saying no, we're not really so much for it, you find the little ones they won't even want to take part not to say they were anyone who was actually little, but in comparison to the leaders and the leadership. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness. Now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he got to a certain point the army camped.
And when the army came to, he took up a casa de la Juana. And he said, let's go and find out now we need to know the numbers of these people, what type of weapons they have, and so on. So what happened is,
they hadn't even known exactly where courage was.
They saw a man, just the two of them as they moved. They went into the desert on their own. They saw an old Arab Bedouin men, and they told him, we are the Muslims. Good question, look at how the question is asked, this is actually now a tactic to get news to get information. Because now this is a war situation, where the Muslims, he says, Who are you?
So they said, you tell us where the Muslims are. Then we tell you who we are.
So he says okay.
No, he didn't say Who are you? He said, Where are you from? That was the question Where are you from? So they said you tell us what we want to know. Then we tell you what you want to know. So he says okay, the Muslims, they left Medina on such and such a day. They were so many of them, and they headed to a certain place. They were
So seen in this place on this day, and today as we speak, they should be in this place. And it was so accurate. So panela so accurate, shocking.
So then they said, Oh, is that the case? Okay, what about the mccanns? Were they, the people of Mecca Quraysh. He said, As for Quraysh, they got the news. And this is how they prepare. They went there, they went there, they did this the army, they should be at this place life now, which was not very far at all.
So then they said, he said right now, where are you from? So the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam looks at him and says, We are from water. And they walked away quickly, the two of them went away. Now, we are all from water. We were created from water and dust, which was mixed together and it became clay. So because he said, Where are you from? He says, We are from water. So Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam went away immediately so that no further questions would be asked. And he says, which water the water of Iraq? They didn't answer anything they just carried on. Because if they waited, a lie would have been necessitated. And if someone lied because of war, it wasn't wrong.
It's not wrong in the Sharia. If it's a war, then Subhanallah you don't need to give your enemy the information. But they knew that if we are going to tell him anything besides this, there's going to be a problem. So Subhanallah they went away and they found out they Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam had one powerful habit. He never ever got people worried and excited, not once. He knew the news. He knew how serious everything was, but he always calm the people down so Panama unlike today, we hear something minute. We blow it up so big and we make like the houses burned down before we even Subhan Allah open our mouth that Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson. This is why Allah Subhana Allah
What either I

be the hypocrites whenever news of fear or safety good or bad comes to them, they quickly broadcast it the word allow for your information either refers to broadcasting, you see that it means that which is broadcasted radio and television is included in that which is broadcasting. So, here, Allah subhanho wa Taala speaking of the hypocrites and their quality, whenever there is some piece of information that is of importance, whether it is to do with security or whether it is to do with goodness, piece, harm or difficulty or goodness, it is quickly broadcasted before it is taken to those with sound knowledge, what I what I do a law suniva
only criminal law alima una de
Puna, whom in Nome, had they taken that news to the messenger or to those who are in authority, those with sound intellect above them, they would have known how to deal with the news. So this is the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he took this and he went back to his army, and then they started preparing and as they were preparing Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speaking to them, giving them information telling them what they would like to do, we want to go to better and we will inshallah settle at a specific place and so on. inshallah we will get to that in a few moments, but in the meantime, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent more people to find out a
little bit more of the information. And from amongst them he sent Ali ibn Abu Talib radi Allahu anhu. And this debate, a warm rhodiola one one duration says with them was sad if Nabil wakatobi Allah when
they rushed in the evening to what was known as more or better, the place where water The water was in butter. Now in butter, there were a few places where there was water there was water close to where the Muslims were, and water a little bit further away. So when Ali Adnan Abu Talib in his Sadiq Nabila pass and as debatable, Allah and him went to this water, they found two youngsters, filling the containers for courage to take back water.
So they got hold of these youngsters and brought them back to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
These two youngsters are filling water, they will ask questions they were trying to evade the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was reading Salah when he completed he said, Look, we know we want you to tell us where he's polish.
The two boys looked young little boys. And they said well, they're just here on the other side,
the other side of the valley, which means very, very close.
And we are here
to collect their water. How many are they? So the young boy say we don't know how many they are. Now the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, even more intelligent and Abu sufian, Abu sufian had to check the drop.
of the camera. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam says how many camels do they slaughter a day for food.
So they said one day nine one day 10 the Prophet sallallahu wasallam looks at his companions and says, that means they are between 900 and 1000. So panela look at the figure, because 100 people eat from one camera, that's the average. So if they have nine one day 10 the other day, perhaps they are nine 950 to 1000 1000 men look at the intelligence. He understood immediately. Then he asked them and who from amongst courageous day,
they said all the big boys meaning all the leaders of Croatia, they Abuja, Holly's day of his day out webinar via is de Subhana. Allah, I would say, Wow, all the names are there. May Allah subhanahu Allah grant us goodness, imagine, now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looks at his companions, and he says, This is Quraysh, Allah has brought them to you.
With their leaders, they have come all the way here, the leaders have come. These are the same people who harmed us. These are the same people who attacked us. These are the same people who made it from amongst us, these are the ones who you saved our wealth. Now, when we say these type of things, it pulls the blood it makes people want to go and get back whatever was there. So halala imagine a man who has had a stroke for years on end. And one day is just you and him. And you can see that you much more muscular than he is you look at him, he's trying to run away, what do you do, you're so happy that at least is so close. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us goodness. With
that, we need to remember without the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala, nothing was going to happen because 313 On one hand, and almost 1000, perhaps more than 1000 strong. On the other end, they were well equipped. The difficulty was they were having a bowl of a time in those mushriks. What were they doing every time a Buddha has said we will camp there for three nights. That's what he said, he says we'll enjoy we'll take our women, they took women with lots of alcohol, drinking, dancing, enjoying is that what war is all about? If you take a look at shavon shavon gets hold of people exactly how he got hold of the people in the past wine and women in the sense that they want people
dancing around them, they want to see they want to commit adultery, they want to drink alcohol and so on. May Allah safeguard us really from that time, it resulted in their failure. And to this day, anyone who has those habits, they can never ever lead a happy life, whether they are Muslim, or non Muslim. If a person is into wine and women and so on their life is a mess, it will have to be a mess. And if it is not yet a mess, it's going to be a mess. So that is something that is a plan from the very beginning of shapen. In order to lead us astray, may Allah protect us, and may He protect our families, our brothers and sisters, and may He protect our children as well. So this was a
Buddha. And what he did was something shocking, drinking, and he was loud mouth very loud, saying statements, very, very bad statements. We'll come to one of them in a few moments. But in the meantime, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he realized how close these people were, he issued an instruction to his companions. What was the instruction,
cut off all the bells from the necks of the camels, all the bells were cut off. Why? Very simple. If the bells are on the necks of the camels, like nowadays, you find bells on the necks of some of the cattle so that they are not lost from a distance you can hear camera, people would be able to know there's the camels, this is where it is they will know direction. In this way, the ropes are cut, no one knows which direction it is in. No one knows how many they are because you can't hear the bells are ringing and so on number one number two is
he told his companions we will proceed we will progress he did not inform them exactly where where they will proceed and progress. We said this at the beginning and we repeating it now. Because this happened many times. He only released at every level, how much they needed to know that's all. So at a certain point, okay, we're going there. When they get there. We are now going there when they get there. We are now going there. So Pamela so that news didn't fly and news didn't go to the others and to the enemy and so that the enemy would not be able to have information and intelligence gathered against the Muslims.
And then after the Muslims decided Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam the following day decided that let us all go and we will stop at the water of the closest water that we have
the closest water but let's stop there so that we can have water once the war is going on. And so when they got there Subhan Allah, there was a Sahabi known as an abnormal Allah and he looks at the messenger this man was intelligent he had taken part
Some wars in the past, he looks at
me says jasola Allah sallallahu sallam, you have kept the army here. This is the close water to us there is another water further down. Is it revelation from Allah an instruction that we cannot go against, that you have made us camp here with? Or is it just an opinion that can be changed in the sense that could we have a say, could we suggest something? So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, No, it is not a must, that we have to be here, we've just camped here. So, he says, in that case, I have an opinion, what is your opinion,
my opinion is let us go to the other water. So we will have this water as well as the other water and Quraysh will have no water.
So when they come in, they will have no water at all. Another thing is, the soil here is not fit for our horses, in case it rains, what will happen, the horses will actually slip if we go further up there, there is a little bit of sand, if it rains, or there is water and so on, we will be able to have the horses very steady on the ground. So Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam immediately agreed with this opinion. And he took the entire army and told them, let's get there. And so they proceeded to the next water. And now they had control of all the water in butter. So there was no way that Quraysh would get water.
And then Subhan Allah,
on one hand, the eve of the battle, the mushriks are busy dancing, they busy enjoying the busy drinking and they are certain that they're going to win because they know how much power they have. They don't have a doubt a Pooja is convinced that tomorrow we're going to win, convinced and they don't have a doubt. So they really enjoying drinking so much. Now you and I know that when there is a person who has drunk so much, the following morning, he gets up with half, you know, half an eye this way that we're probably looking at you with one eye and so on. And he sees two three people not realizing exactly which one is the real person and which one is just the double because of the eye.
This happens. I don't know in my part of the world, they call it Baba last I don't know what they call it here. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. So a person comes and these people were drinking that same drink was one of the reasons of their downfall. And it was a means that Allah had chosen for their downfall. Subhana Allah. And in the meantime, the Muslims, they were concerned, they were making dua, they were engaged in prayer. They were really at the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala Sadiq no more al tells Rasulullah Salallahu Salam ala rasulillah Let us build for you a headquarters here. So they built at one place they it is known as El Arish, up to today, if you go
to bother, there is a message built on that location known as mosquito fish. That is where the command center was, they had just built a little structure Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam would sit inside there. And when the war began, he came out obviously, but this was just for the time that they had camped in, and they had camped for several days even after the battle they camped for another three days. So that place will Irish was built in the meantime very quickly see the army gets together they built this place beautifully. Mashallah. And Sadiq numata was standing out there with some of his men making sure no one goes in Abu Bakr Allah and the messenger sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam were in this Irish little command center. And in the meantime, the Muslims are given a gift by Allah subhanho wa Taala listen to what Allah says. If you wish she como

Allah says remember the time that the yawning over to Q they actually fell off to sleep. Imagine people are waiting the enemy is there who would sleep people would be wide awake waiting to say the following morning we're going to fight and here you have sleep. Everybody slept the Muslims had a good sleep Mashallah, Allah says we blessed you with a good sleep. And above that we caused the rain to fall so much so that the following morning the valley had water in it. What happened? That's the habit. I'll have bourbon on Monday. He was correct. The soil the sand was now good enough for the horses to tread over. Whereas it had been quicksand the previous day. But now that it was all wet,
it was beautiful because the horses could move on it and Quraysh were in a place where they suffered in the night their horses couldn't even move between
Have the water the opposite Subhanallah and they didn't have water to drink. And on this side it rained. So panela and this is Allah gift and Allah says we sent you the water for it to be a cleansing for you. And for the the the whispers of the devil to go people became very, very energetic and they were looking forward to the next day because of the rain rain freshens you up Mashallah. And at the same time, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, and in order for you to be steadfast May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness. So this was a gift that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was given another thing. Allah showed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a dream. In his
dream Allah says, If you rica home Allah movie mana, Mika kanila, we showed their number to you in your dream as very little. So in the dream, Allah showed Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam the number of very, very little, very little. Now one might say the dreams of the prophets are all true. So why is it that he saw them little when they were so big? No. Compared to the man that was on one side, they will kneel on the other side. They were nothing. So it's not the figures. It is actually the strength, the strength given by Allah subhanho wa Taala due to Eman so Allah showed him that they are very, very little while araca home coffee machine wallet and as I told you, Phil Emery, while
Akin Allah has Allah Allah says, if we had showed you that they were so large in number, perhaps there would have been a dispute perhaps perhaps you may not have wanted to fight them and so on. But Allah subhanho wa Taala saved you.
So this was a dream, that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had that Eve and then Subhana Allah. On the other hand, one man also saw a dream. His name was Jamie.
He was from amongst the missionaries, one of those people of Abidjan. He had a dream. That dream was also assigned from Allah subhanho wa Taala. He claimed that a man came to him on a horse with a little camel of his and he says
such and such a person is already killed. Such a person is killed such a person is murdered, such a person is made. Who were the names abou john, Amaya been hollowed out by these people are already murdered. So this man goes to Abuja and he tells him Hey, I saw a dream. And in the dream, I saw that this man comes and tells me you are murdered. The other one is executed on my behalf is executed out of Nairobi, and he took the names Abuja began to laugh, obviously half drunk, the man doesn't know what he's saying. And he starts laughing. He says, Who do you think you are? Tomorrow we will show you who's going to win. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. Allah He alcohol is
something we should stay very, very far from very far. It is totally prohibited. It is known as one of the root causes of most other ills. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us. So the following day, Subhan Allah the Prophet sallallahu Sallam got the people ready.
And he started advising them, he read for them versus he warned them he gave them lots of advice, and he told him to be disciplined in war, and to listen to the instructions of the commander who was Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. He said, we have been taught to make stuff safe in Allah how you have millennio Cogito nafeesa beanie.
Allah loves those whom when they are on the battlefield, and they are fighting they are in rose rose like the Rose of Allah Subhana Allah. So there was a row the first row was made of those who were the the archers, those who would actually use their bows and arrows, the arrows and spears to attack. And he said, we don't have that many Spears, so don't waste them. And at the same time, you wait until they come right to us when they are very close to us. Then you hit them with the spears and the others. The next row was though with those with swords, he said as for you
don't remove your swords until they are right in your midst. Then you take your swords out Subhanallah and they didn't have the question of horsemen, because they were only two and they were told instructed very carefully by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So what had happened is, as the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made this dua, Allah responded his door
and says, Oh Allah, help us assistance. You promised us assistance. We are asking you for help. Yeah, Allah.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
If you hear a booger in Alma in karate
Nema come. In fact, there is a verse slightly before that where Allah says is una
festa giavanna common name Amit Dooku blv mineral mala e catchy mo d v. Remember when you were seeking the help of Allah and Allah responded using we are sending you 1000 angels to help you
The following day, or when the battle was about to commence In fact,
the verses came down in fact Allah subhanho wa Taala told Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we are sending you How would you like it if we sent you 3000 angels and then he says, We are sending you 5000 angels if you fear Allah, and so on. And voila, he if you look at Sahih al Bukhari, you open the book, there is a BB, BB meaning a chapter the chapter is named the chapter of the participation of the angels in the Battle of butter, and a hadith there are fewer Hadith that are made mention of so the angels also took part in this battle of butter. Now, at that time, the battles used to always commence with a duel, you know, people who would have a sword fight. So three
of the people of courage came out when courage had come in. Courage walked to a specific spot, the Muslims walked to a specific spot, and they were all in lines. Courage was haphazard. First time in the history they are witnessing people drawing lines, you know, making lines and people all lined up. Quraysh was surprised Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went with his spear straightening the straight like the stuff of Salah. The rows were made straight, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then selected three people to go out to face the three home Quraysh had picked up who did they pick up? They picked up by Abner abbia, Shea Butter
and Jelly DipNote. Those three had come up and when it was a youngster, the other two older people on this side Hamza Abdulmutallab came out. And we have Ali ibn Abu Talib rhodiola, who came out and obey the admiral Harris or the law and who came out and Subhanallah It started off with a few words and NIMBYs the Army's the two of them. Watch, they wait for the duel to complete, and then they all start fighting. So what happened as the duel commenced Hamza on your lawn, who in no time, put an end to shave Nora BIA and the idea of your lawn who in no time executed.
And as for obey them then Harris
badnera. BIA gave him a difficult time and struck him but he was struck as well. And then Hamza and Alia rhodiola. Han came to his assistance and this man was executed as well. Quraysh was shocked. They were shocked their leaders were gone.
Some of them and as they were shocked, you know, find
that the two armies began, in fact, courage began to run towards the Muslims. The Muslims were just waiting exactly where they were. When they got to a specific point they were instructed to remove their spears and arrows, they removed them then they were instructed to fire when they fire. So many operations were already
gone. SubhanAllah just by that. And as they went, the horsemen of Quraysh began to come. They fired again, a lot of the horses dropped. and thereafter Subhan Allah the war began, and the greatest loss of the kuffaar of Quraysh it is shocking the leaders of Quraysh one by one, they were executed by the same people whom they had troubled and harassed over time. There are some beautiful incidents of how some young boys took part in this war and they had a very, very big impact and effect may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness inshallah, tomorrow we will continue We leave you in that suspense by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Tomorrow we will continue with the rest of the
battle. Until then, we say was Allah wa salam ala nabina Muhammad Subhana Allah Subhana Coloma behenic shadow Allah Allah hi Lance
