Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa salam O Allah Allah Himself to Germany Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Tabby momento Bian vs. Danilo Medina

00:00:17--> 00:00:51

All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless him, and his entire household all his companions May Allah bless them and bless every single one of us and grant us goodness, beloved brothers and sisters in Islam. Yesterday, we were making mention of the story where there was an accusation leveled against the most pure of women in Chateau de la Juana. And just to recap as to exactly what had happened, as they were returning from the Battle of Bernal Masonic

00:00:54--> 00:00:58

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam decided to instruct the army to leave. And I

00:01:00--> 00:01:47

was looking for a bracelet of hers or a necklace. And at that time, they used to have a hold that in the Arabic language, the how that is the cover at the top of the animal, or at the top of the camel, where the women folk used to sit as the camel used to move. It used to protect them from the sun, as well as act as privacy for them. And when they stopped at a specific place, the camel would be made to sit down, the men would lift up the entire house and put it to the side, which would make it look like a little tent. and thereafter, they would go away and the women would then either come out or remain in there and so on be protected from the sun and what have you. So I shall the Alona says, as

00:01:47--> 00:02:27

they as they had put it down, and I was doing some of my things, whatever I had to do, I realized that I was missing a necklace and I went hunting for it looking for it around. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam instructed the army to leave, they lifted up this house that thinking that I shall have the alarm on her was inside, they placed it on the camel and they progressed. And she says when I got back to the place where they were, I noticed there was no one everyone had gone. And I told myself that perhaps they will notice my absence and they will return. But sadly, they did not return the army continued. And this was after the battle have been almost solid. After some

00:02:27--> 00:03:17

time, one of the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu was passing from the past, and I shall the law says I was dressed in black, I was quite tired. I was sitting down on the on the floor, meaning on the desert sand, and I had fallen off to sleep. And I got up by someone saying in Alabama he were in a Rogen as I looked it was a funny blue Apple rhodiola and he did not utter one word. He had understood already that this is normal, meaning it shall be allowed on her and she has been left behind by the entire caravan as they left. So he allowed his camel to be seated and he got her onto it and he took her all the way to Al Madina munawwara as they arrived Abdullah hypnobabies saloon who was the head of

00:03:17--> 00:04:05

the hypocrites who had during the Battle of Burnham was colic made mention of something very strange. He said la era Jana, Ellen Medina, Tina region, Allah zoom in hell as well. When we get to Madina, munawwara the superior will kick out the inferior meaning we are going to fix Muhammad, Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and we will see how we will remove him out. And we made mention yesterday of crusades, and the other companions who said oh messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you are the superior and he is the inferior. So this man had had a plan in his head, whatever the plan was, this gave him reason to make something else up as well. And so when he saw it, Chateau de

00:04:05--> 00:04:23

la, enter. Madina munawwara was so funny Belmopan, he immediately started spreading a rumor that these two have committed the sin. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all. May He grant His goodness, may he protect us in our offspring. And may He really protect our tongues as well.

00:04:24--> 00:04:57

So this rumor began, and I shall the law did not know about it at all. She didn't even hear she went home. And it continued in the sense that outside the house, people started talking. And the people were divided into three categories, three major categories. One of them those who invented the life the head was Abdullayev no baby, no saloon, they created it. They knew it was just a rumor which they had started with evil intent. The second group those like Abu Belen, sorry about the alarm rang. He told his wife,

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

he says, Oh, you could

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

You ever do something like that? She said never. Well, if you cannot, Ayesha is cleaner than you, Allahu Akbar. So it's definitely a lie. And we are clean, we would believe she's even cleaner than us. So they immediately threw out the statement and they refuse to utter it. And they said, We believe that if we are pure cheese even pure

00:05:20--> 00:06:03

are the Allahu anhu. Jamia? That was one category of people. The other category of people were those who had spread the light, they did not create it, but they spread it, they spoke about it, did you hear the latest gossip, and so on. Now, this is typical. In our scenario nowadays, what happens to us, we find, for some reason, we find sweetness in words and in statements where rumor is being spread about others. May Allah safeguard us. So this is why we have a lesson to learn from this, and inshallah we will get to it in a few moments. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard about it. And he was very upset. He went into it, Chateau de la and his room several times, and he would

00:06:03--> 00:06:22

just ask her, k fatigue, which means, how is that one? He's talking to her instead of saying, how are you? He's saying, how is that one referring to her in absence showing a distance between him and her? How is that one? Imagine you're talking to your wife? And you're saying, how is that one? How are you?

00:06:23--> 00:07:09

So this was him, he was upset. But this is how he showed it. sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And at the same time, he knew that it could either be a lie, or it could be true, although he knew in his heart that this is a lie. But for him to come out and say this is a lie. People would think you defending your wife, may Allah protect us. So he had to wait for revelation for it. To come with clarification to clear the name of meaning I shadow the law, but revelation did not come. Do you know why? One of the reasons was that Allah subhanho wa Taala kept this whole incident as a test in order to test everyone and in order for it to be a lesson for us who came later on generations down the line. May

00:07:09--> 00:07:24

Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson. So she was very, very innocent of it. She didn't even know why is the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being so distant? Until one day she went out with one of her relatives known as

00:07:25--> 00:07:38

the mother of Miss USA. And when she went out, this woman tells her there is a Mr. Mr. has definitely lost, you know, destruction upon Miss pack. So

00:07:39--> 00:07:50

he looks at her and says, How can you say that about someone who took part in the Battle of better misbehaved, Natasha rhodiola when he was a poor man who was related to Abu Bakr Siddiq,

00:07:51--> 00:08:19

and Ayesha was the daughter of Abu Bakr Siddiq for the long run. And Abu Bakr used to spend money on him and Abu Bakr. Siddiq are the Allahu anhu used to give him charities and look after him. So Ayesha is saying, Oh, Mr. How can you say this about your own son when he has taken part in the Battle of butter? And we made mention of the rank of the people who took part in the Battle of butter. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us also a rank through His mercy.

00:08:21--> 00:08:49

So she said, Didn't you hear what he is saying? Now Miss Pac was not from amongst those who invented the lie, but he was one of those who was active in spreading it. Did you hear what happened? And then he would tell someone, did you hear what happened and then tell someone did you hear what happened and then tell someone so now when his mother told I shadowed Ilana, she was shocked. She went back home in tears. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam walked in, same question, okay, if it come, how is that one?

00:08:50--> 00:09:29

She says, oh, messenger. sallallahu alayhi wasallam Do you permit me to go to my parents home? Look at this word. Do you allow me to go home? Now she's understood what's happening. Do you allow me to go and see my mother and father. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam permitted her to go she went in order to find out what to be done. Oh, my mother. Have you heard what people are saying? She said, Morrow man or the mother of eyeshadow. Viola. Anna, do you know when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam later on? spoke about amoro man, the mother of Ayesha. He said whoever wants to see a hole from gentlemen. Look at omarama

00:09:31--> 00:09:58

this was the mother of eyeshadow Viola Anna. So she speaks to her daughter saying oh my daughter. Don't worry. Don't get too overexcited about this rumor here. Meaning Don't overreact. Leave it sometimes what happens? Someone who is good looking like you quite young like you Subhanallah you may have people who spread things and so on. Don't read too deep into it. Yeah. So the mother is giving advice to her daughter Subhana Allah

00:10:00--> 00:10:14

I shall the law says no, it's very difficult for me because here there is rumors spread the messenger sallallahu wasallam is not speaking to me. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has not sent revelation and I am completely innocent. The mother did not doubt the innocence of her daughter Subhan Allah

00:10:16--> 00:10:23

and the father, Ababa Casa de la What should he say? He is a friend of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam as well as

00:10:24--> 00:11:07

a father in law at the same time. And he is a person who is a follower at the same time, what should he say? Allah and His Messenger know best. So, this caused a lot of discomfort until the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam many days later, after continuing in this manner with eyeshadow and her crying, rumors spreading, people are falling into several categories and so on. And I shadowed Allah and he says, I couldn't even sleep properly. And I couldn't even eat and I couldn't. I really didn't even understand what was happening due to lots of crying and so on. But All I knew is allowed clear my name allowed since revelation I was innocent, completely innocent. So now, the prophets of Allah

00:11:07--> 00:11:53

Salaam decided to ask some of his companions because revelation did not come for more than a month. So he calls it now be funny. And Osama bin Zayed are the Allahumma he says, oh, Ali, what do you think? Oh sama, what do you think Osama bin Zayed are the Allahu anhu He says, this is a fabrication. But he says, He says he shall have the law, meaning she's clean, she's pure. This is all the mischief of hypocrites and so on. And alira the Allahu anhu. He says, Look, she is a young lady. There are many other women besides her. Why don't you ask the servant barrier and see what she says. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asks, barrier barrier was the seventh. I shall

00:11:53--> 00:12:16

allow Anna Obara. What do you think of this barrier says, Allah He it is false. She is one of the most chaste women that you could have very clean, very pure. And she went on praising her in her own words, and Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam then got up, he was upset, he went out where the unsolved were, and he says Manya Durrani to Julian

00:12:18--> 00:12:30

Lee Beatty, who is going to Excuse me? Who is going to excuse me, regarding a person whose harm has now reached the innermost part of my own home? Which means Abdullah?

00:12:32--> 00:12:37

Which means who can retaliate? Or who would excuse me if I were to retaliate?

00:12:39--> 00:13:18

And who gets up and says or messenger? Who is he? If he is from my clan, I will execute him. And if he is from the other clan, you tell us what to do, we will do it. So immediately, sadly, nobody who was from the other clan, one was 31, we made the statement that if nobody alone, who said No you won't kill him? If he's from our clan, you won't kill him. How can you say that you will sought him out and so on. And he pursued who say who they allow and who got up and he also added something he said no, if this person has harmed the messenger, then they deserve to be dealt with how dare someone say something of this nature, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was standing and watching

00:13:18--> 00:13:41

the unserved talking amongst themselves with the Mahajan and so on. And there was this discussion. And they in Madina, munawwara people were all just into all these categories, one group talking one group excited in the background, really watching in Glee as everything is happening according to their plan. Those were the hypocrites, and one group saying this is a total fabrication.

00:13:43--> 00:13:49

So then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam goes into the room of I shall have the alarm on her. And he greets.

00:13:50--> 00:13:53

Now when he greets, she thought some goodness is coming.

00:13:55--> 00:14:42

But instead of that, he says to shadow a shadow Allah, Allah illallah wa shadow, Mohammed Abu rasuluh. Then he says, thereafter so now he's making a statement. It's a statement regarding what happened. He's saying oh Ayesha, if you are innocent, Allah will reveal your innocence. And if you have committed a sin, remember, you admit your error to Allah, Allah will forgive you, and Allah will cleanse you and so on. So he gave her the options and she began to weep, because this meant that there is still no clarification. She began to weep until they came a time when she said, If I am to say I am innocent, they won't believe me. And if I am to say that I am guilty, that's what

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

they want to hear. But that would be a lie, because I am innocent. So I'm in a fixed basically caught between the two, I shall sing, and she says, I told them, that I cannot utter any words besides the words of the Prophet Yaqoob Jacob May peace be upon him.

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

When he had lost his son used to Valley he said, he said

00:15:05--> 00:15:09

Jeremy will love.

00:15:14--> 00:15:41

My patients shall be beautiful by the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Indeed, Allah is the one who will assist regarding their statements and what they are describing. This was the statement. She repeated this. And then she says, As they walked out of the house before they could leave the house. revelation came to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam This was almost a month over a month later

00:15:42--> 00:15:44

in Aladdin.

00:15:46--> 00:15:47

Live chaos.

00:15:50--> 00:15:54

con la Sabu chavon Lancome Bell,

00:15:56--> 00:15:57

come the

00:15:59--> 00:16:02

min max does abominable isn't

00:16:04--> 00:16:05

Kibo

00:16:08--> 00:16:09

la Cava?

00:16:11--> 00:16:17

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, indeed those who have come with the fabrication are a group from amongst you.

00:16:19--> 00:17:02

Imagine when revelation came out, the word fabrication was used as soon as that word was used. It was a clarification for everything, because that's what they that's what they were waiting for. The minute The term was used, it means a fabrication. Someone who has accused another person falsely of immorality. So when Allah revealed the verses that the the those who have brought about this false accusation or a group from amongst you, they knew it was already a lie. So Panama, then Allah says, Do not think that it is bad for you. It is in fact Good for you. Let's stop there for a moment. today. When people spread rumor about us. Do you know that sometimes your success is directly

00:17:02--> 00:17:42

connected to the rumor that people spread about you as a direct result of it Allah gives you success in different aspects of your life. Because when they spread rumor, they are taking away your sin when they've taken away your sins. Sometimes things you haven't even done because the rumor continues and spreads amongst 1000 people when you are only one man or one woman. So 1000 people have taken away more than the sins you actually have. By then giving you the good deeds they have what happens to you, you become pure, you become cleansed, you become a person who's elevated your doors open one after the other, you don't know how come I am leading such a happy life, but it is

00:17:42--> 00:17:49

all connected to the rumor that is spread against you. Allah says don't ever think it's bad for you. It's actually very good for you so can Allah.

00:17:50--> 00:18:03

And then Allah says, everyone who took part in that particular accusation shall bear their sin of it. And the one who created the fabrication shall have a massive punishment who was Abdullayev nobody.

00:18:05--> 00:18:46

So Allah subhanho wa Taala review these verses, and I shall the Allahu Allah when she was told by Omar Oman, her mother, get up. Why don't you embrace him? Because now the problem is sorted. She says, Why should I get up and embrace him? I have none to thank besides Allah subhanho wa Taala she was obviously upset at the time because she was being accused. And now she was so happy because the cleansing came from the heavens Subhana Allah. And this is why she always used to say to her compatriots that you know, I am the one whose name was cleansed from the heavens Subhan Allah. And these were the verses surah to noon. If we pick up the Quran and read surah two more, we will see

00:18:46--> 00:19:06

these verses they're beautiful, powerful verses and this is why Allah subhanho wa Taala describes this it is a very, very interesting story but the lessons to be learned from there even greater, because Allah subhanho wa Taala says Lola is me to move on me no no almina to be

00:19:08--> 00:19:13

wakanow if comb ob

00:19:15--> 00:19:29

shouldn't there be believers when they heard such a rumor? think to themselves Shouldn't they have thought to themselves that if we cannot do this, she definitely cannot do it. And this is what about you but I'm sorry about the alarm and who had done

00:19:31--> 00:19:37

and they should have said this is a fabrication and it's alive. While Ola Samia tomo

00:19:38--> 00:19:40

una

00:19:43--> 00:20:00

Suba Hanukkah Bhutan Oh Na me Shouldn't you have uttered immediately as you heard it, that look, we should not be missing our tongues with this type of statement. Don't talk about this indeed. It's a big fabrication against the pure people. SubhanAllah so this

00:20:00--> 00:20:29

Allah teaching us when you hear a rumor. When you hear various comments. The best thing is to say, I don't want to miss my tongue with the statement, and I don't want to utter that which is lies. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. Then Allah says, Lola de la ba, ba t Shahada shuhada let them bring forth for eyewitnesses regarding the act. If they don't bring those four eyewitnesses for una

00:20:30--> 00:21:10

de la caribou, then they are the liars in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. In fact, at that point, a punishment was sent by Allah subhanho wa Taala. For those who are spreading the accusation, Allah says they had to be whipped at lashes, may Allah subhanahu wa taala protect us, anyone who accuses a believing male or female of immorality and adultery, they should be told to bring four eyewitnesses who have witnessed the act. If they cannot do that they should be lashed at lashes and this is the injunction of the Quran.

00:21:12--> 00:21:30

Today we see people walking out there and we very very interestingly say, you know what, these people are having an affair or these people are going out will law he you know what Allah says, If tele Kona will be seen as water coluna be

00:21:33--> 00:21:37

be hearing what I say boo hyena

00:21:39--> 00:22:05

de la Yami you have received it with your tongues you have uttered it with your tongues you are saying the statement with your mouth and you are considering it light yet in the eyes of Allah it is a huge sin to accuse people. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah protect us. really look at the words then Allah says in alladhina you him Bona

00:22:06--> 00:22:15

Tashi Alfa Asia to fillerina Amano, la Hamada upon Lee movie dunya. All

00:22:16--> 00:22:56

those people who love to spread the tales of immorality amongst the believers, for them, there will be a severe punishment in this world and then in the next as well. What does this mean? People who like to spread stories True or false? If it is a story of immorality, why spread it? You are encouraging others. The first thing you're doing is you're backbiting if it's not backbiting it is slander. And on top of that, you will be telling others and people will start thinking well, this is a sin that is common. So if we are committing it, then that doesn't make us any different from anybody else and so on. So it encourages people to actually sin Allah says that is why stories of

00:22:56--> 00:23:38

immorality you should never ever spread them. Those who like to spread stories of immorality amongst the believing male and female, they will be punished Allah says in this world and then the next Allah says goddess, and from this Tao Lama say that to read books, that that are what we would term x rated full of stories of immorality is forbidden because it falls under this list. And the same applies pornography and so on, and anything immoral. Even if there is a movie that has something immoral in it, we should remember we should be further away from it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us. The reason why I say further away is we as Muslims shouldn't even be indulged in that in

00:23:38--> 00:23:39

the first place.

00:23:40--> 00:24:22

May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and grant us a lesson. There are so many verses here that have a lesson for all of us. Now I shall dwell on her. Her name was cleansed by Allah subhanho wa Taala her status was elevated by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, Abu Bakr, radi Allahu anhu was faced with the difficulty. What was the difficulty that young men misbehaved, no Asada, who was spreading the rumor? He was one of the relatives in Abu Bakr Siddiq rhodiola, who as we said, used to spend on him and give him charities and look after him basically. So when he spread the rumor Abu Bakr Siddiq radi Allahu anhu was so upset that he said one law he I am not going to spend on this man again.

00:24:23--> 00:24:36

So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed versus after this to Abu Bakar acidic or referring to Abu Bakr, Siddiq or the Allahu anhu these verses revealed to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam wala

00:24:37--> 00:24:45

naman Kumar Sati to Cordoba one my Sakina

00:24:52--> 00:24:56

to him buena de la una Khun

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

me

00:25:01--> 00:25:34

Those who have been granted virtue by Allah and ease and wealth by Allah subhanho wa Taala they should never take an oath or make an oath, that they are not going to spend upon the poor and upon people who have engaged in the hegira and upon those who are relatives, they should not do that they should forgive and they should embrace For indeed, do they not want to be forgiven by Allah? The question is, do you not want to be forgiven by Allah subhanho wa Taala while Allah is most forgiving, Most Merciful,

00:25:35--> 00:26:13

when Abu Bakr Siddiq, Allah and who heard this verse, He immediately said, Yes, indeed, I want to be forgiven by Allah. So I forgive this man. What about the oath, you have taken an oath? Well, he had to pay the recompense of that oath, in order to then break it so that he could fulfill the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And never again, did he stop in his charitable deeds towards this particular man, may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us today, we would never help someone who has actively spread rumor about us and harmed us in our lives or our family members. I don't think from amongst us, there would be many, if any, who would actually do that.

00:26:14--> 00:26:55

And on top of that, even if we were to help, sometimes shaytan comes to us and makes us think right, because I am financing this man, I can now control him doesn't suddenly enslave the person. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us And may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us from amongst those whom when we spend we spend for his cause? And may He make us from those who learned a lesson from Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu anhu Do you know why he forgave. One of the reasons obviously was the instruction of Allah but he says, I want to be forgiven by Allah. So let me forgive this man. If we forgive people, Allah will forgive us your hammer in your hand Comanche sama, have mercy upon those

00:26:55--> 00:27:38

on earth and Allah subhanho wa Taala will have mercy upon you. So if we have a quality of forgiving people, you will find that Allah has quality of forgiveness is far greater than anything we can come up with. And this is why find it in your heart to forgive For indeed, when Allah says that on the day that we need forgiveness, we will find Allah subhanho wa Taala forgiving us now this is a very, very powerful verse and these entire verses that we have read today, very powerful, the lessons are all in sought to know if we turn the pages of surah to know we will come to learn whatever we have said this evening and Alhamdulillah we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us purity and to grant

00:27:38--> 00:27:48

us chastity to protect us and our offspring, our family members and the room at large from immoral immoral behavior. May Allah subhanho wa Taala purify us all.

00:27:49--> 00:27:50

Now we have

00:27:51--> 00:28:34

another battle that took place at the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. It is reported in the fifth year of Egypt. And when in the fifth year, the majority say in the month of Shadwell, which was just after Ramadan. You see yesterday we made mention of Burnaby the tribe and the group of people who were told to leave al Madina munawwara and these people, a lot of them went to a place near a sham known as rats. But they were some of them a group of them who had gone to haber from amongst them was a stop, and a few others. These were the senior people from those who were expelled from Burnaby. That was a Jewish clan in the outskirts of Madina munawwara they had gone to haber.

00:28:36--> 00:29:20

From haber, they decided we are wealthy we have a lot of date pumps, a lot of dates and so on a lot of produce, why don't we form a little committee and we let this committee go and visit all the tribes and clans mainly the two major groups one was copper fan and one was courage. We will go to the Phone and speak to them and we will go to court and speak to them and we will bring them together and we will be allied together and as a confederate. We will then merge onto Madina munawwara and wipe out the Muslims for once and for all because they chased us out of Al Madina munawwara. Now to refresh your memories. The reason why they were expelled was they broke the

00:29:20--> 00:29:58

treaty, they wanted to murder Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and they were caught red handed. And on top of that they had broken the treaty in several other ways. So Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam asked them to leave. And that was actually some point of mercy because they were guilty of war crimes. They could have been executed rightfully, but they were not they were asked to leave. So these people they sent a team to help and they told us, look, we want you to give us as many men as you can. We're going to come together and make an alliance and we will pay you for it because they had no problem.

00:30:00--> 00:30:29

They had no problem at all they did not want to fight Quraysh was the one who wanted to fight. So these people said, okay, we will pay you but the fan says how much are you going to pay us? So the people have cable these people have been on no deal. They said we will pay you one years produce of data from the Hall of Famer. Now that's a lot. It's like saying the economy of our whole country for one year we'll go to you. May Allah protect us. So these people agreed.

00:30:31--> 00:31:13

No problem. We join your alliance. In the meantime, the same group went to Korea, and they spoke to Abu sufian Look, we have the Alliance. It's already made up of little tribes and groups and a foreigner has joined us with 1000s of men, you also bring men and so on. And Quraysh they had a gripe against the Muslims, they wanted to settle scores. So they said this is a brilliant idea. And in no time they agreed, they decided we're going to join and thereafter they said, Let's merge onto Madina munawwara they gathered 10,000 men. Now in the meantime, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam knew everything that was going on. He was aware of what the people of Burnaby were doing. He was aware of

00:31:13--> 00:31:26

the agreement was not a fan. He was aware of the agreement with Quraysh and he was also aware that now they want to merge onto al Madina, munawwara so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam got together his companions and he says, Oh, my companions,

00:31:27--> 00:31:34

what should we do 10,000 strong men heavily armed from different tribes and groups and Alliance.

00:31:35--> 00:32:20

They are coming towards Madina, munawwara What should we do? So the different companions began to make suggestions and to salmonella, Pharisees, the man from Persia, probably Allah and the men whom we spoke about how he accepted Islam. And he, he his father was one of the fire worshippers in Persia, and he had been left and gone to a sham where he became a Christian. And from there, he was enslaved on his way to Arabia in pursuit of the messenger. And when he came to Madina, munawwara how he accepted Islam and how the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam assisted him to pay those who had enslaved him in order for him to buy his freedom by planting those date palms and we said from 300

00:32:20--> 00:33:04

of them, none of those date palms had actually died. This is the same man. He says, Oh messenger in my area, which means in Persia, when there is a big army that is coming, and we want to block the horses from entering, we create we dig a trench around the city, we dig a trench around the city. Now for us to think of a trench around the hole of Medina. That is something very difficult. But for your information, there was no need to dig the trench around the hole of Medina, because they were only certain places from which the army could have entered Medina. On some parts, it was very rocky, some parts it was mountainous, they couldn't enter from those paths, only the flat land where they

00:33:04--> 00:33:44

could have come from that is where the trench was then agreed to be done. But the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked his companions, what do you all think of this? Some new strategy of war? Nobody had known about it before the people here, no one was aware that this was going to happen. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, after having consulted his companions agreed, and they went out on horseback to look where should this thing be done? They demarcated it correctly, and every 40 feet was given to 10 companions to dig. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself joined in also in one of the groups salallahu alayhi, wasallam, not like the leaders of today, they sit

00:33:44--> 00:34:33

back, and the army is busy working here, the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So much. So that was a time of hunger. It was a time when they had a few days to achieve this whole huge achievement to dig this big trench, they just had a few days, It is reported that in total, this trench was 10 kilometers long, in the different parts of it. 22 feet wide, 16 feet deep, took six days to D and H 10. companions were handed 40 feet to D SubhanAllah. Imagine this is quite deep, it's not a joke. And it's quite wide as well, because a horse as the horses are coming, they don't go so deep they would refuse to get in. And what would happen is it would give the Muslims an opportunity to be with

00:34:33--> 00:34:44

all their their arrows and spears and weaponry on the on the sides such that if anyone attempted to come, they would be pelted or they would be immediately

00:34:45--> 00:34:48

attacked with arrows and so on. So this was something

00:34:49--> 00:35:00

in no time so Han Allah. This was done. We said it took them six days. These six days was six days of great difficulty where they were working

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

flatout Subhan Allah because they had to do it urgently. And in these six days it's important for me to, to make mention of some of the miracles of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was digging himself. And when they had a huge rock to break, and they couldn't break him, they call him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. According to some narrations, he was given the power of 30 min Subhana Allah, he was given the power of 30 minutes and Allahu Allah, he was in them. And he would then destroy the rock and flatten it out or make it rubble sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yet the companions were unable to do that. So Jabir ibn Abdullah the Allahu says when he lifted a rock in order to hit

00:35:43--> 00:36:16

it on another one, I saw that he had tied a rock on his belly because of hunger Subhan Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so a person is hungry. Try it out. It actually works. You know, I was speaking to someone from Europe, complaining about how long the past is. I said, Have you ever tried the sooner you know? tirerack they started laughing. I said, You know what, if you can't tie a hot water bottle or a cold water bottle, it might work. May Allah Subhana Allah protect us what it does, it actually flattens the belly and pushes it in so that you don't feel hungry Although you are very hungry so pan Allah.

00:36:18--> 00:36:57

So Allah sallallahu Sallam with Jabir ibn Abdullah saw this, he felt that this is the messenger. He is working so hard. He saw all this dust on the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his body and he saw a rock tied on his belly. And he then went home, he tells his wife, who was very close, not very far from the trench, he says, what do we have? She says, Well, we have a goat and we have a little bit of barley. So a wheat and he says, Okay, let me slow to this thing and prepare a good meal, put this thing in the oven and I'm calling Nabi sallallahu Sallam with one or two men. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam then was told by Jabir ibn Abdullah, that you're Rasulullah sallallahu

00:36:57--> 00:37:04

sallam. If you can come to my home, I've prepared a small meal you and perhaps you can bring one or two people.

00:37:06--> 00:37:46

So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked him what he said, he repeated it, when he said that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam made an announcement, loud announcement. He says, We have been invited to the house of Jabir ibn Abdullah, let's all go for a meal. Now he was shocked. How are we going to go Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, I only had told him to bring along one or two people because how are we going to feed the whole army here and a lot of the companions had come and Javelin Abdullah tells his wife that you know what they are coming in, there's a lot of them. Now think what would happen in our case, I think we would be dead meat. Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us in some cases, and in

00:37:46--> 00:38:22

some cases, they will be very happy Mashallah to say no problem. I know of some cases where they say you can bring as many as you want, but muchachos is around the corner you better bring some food there as well Mashallah Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us ease and Baraka, Allah, we have so much convenience Allah has made life so easy for us still, sometimes we are not hospitable. Mashallah, I know this community full of hospitality. Sometimes you find shavon overtakes us, and we feel lazy when the Baraka is in feeding the guests. Sometimes the Baraka is in feeding the guests. The Sahaba of the Allahu anhu used to get worried when no guest used to come to their homes. They used to think

00:38:22--> 00:39:00

what's going on? Is there something wrong with my wealth? Is there something wrong with my sustenance, no Baraka in the home. So what happened here? When Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was coming with all his companions? jabiru The Allahu tells his wife, and now there are a few narrations I mentioned in one of them. In one iteration. The wife says, Does the Prophet sallallahu Sallam know that we had only told him one or two people? And he says yes, well, in that case, no problem. In that case, it's fine Subhana Allah, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was coming, he sent an instruction Go and tell your family that they should not take the pot off the fire, and they should

00:39:00--> 00:39:03

not remove whatever is in the oven from it Subhanallah

00:39:04--> 00:39:47

they were about to witness a miracle. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam came, he removed from the pot, and he kept on removing from the pot, and he kept on removing from the pot, and he kept on removing from the oven until the whole army was fit. So Panama. This was the miracle, similar miracle had happened to the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam aforetime Jesus May peace be upon him. We have made mention of this in the past, and it is made mention of even in the Hadith, and the records of the Muslim mean that this is from amongst the miracles of the Prophet Jesus May peace be upon him. He Salli salatu wa sallam here it has repeated itself with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and we

00:39:47--> 00:39:59

asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to grandma's goodness, they were shocked. They were not only shocked but it resulted in them being reinforced the Eman being strengthened, they went back to dig and supalen

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

In no time this army had arrived. When the army came. They were also surprised. They had heard that the Muslims are doing something strange, because there was one more tribe of these people of the book in on the outskirts of Medina, known as banach arriva. We heard that ban Okay, no car was expelled. But no, no, they were expelled. And as for Bono Cordova, they were there but they felt this time there is no ways the Muslims are going to win. They're going to be wiped out. So they align themselves with the Confederates. They even sent or they were trying to send some camels with some dates and some food and assistance which was intercepted by the Muslims and it was taken away

00:40:43--> 00:41:14

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then made it clear that these people have broken the treaty as well by no formula. And by Nicaragua, they had a plan they had hatched a plan inshallah we will see it in a few moments. So the armies came, they were shocked. They looked at this trench, they couldn't move as they tried. They were being attacked by Spears, Muslims, so they couldn't move. They were camping outside, if they went around the Prophet sallallahu wasallam had spread his army out all the Muslims were there because they were in Medina. So there was no question of how many men were the Muslims, they were all there.

00:41:15--> 00:41:37

And so, there was someone in the mountains taking care of that someone the rocky land taking care of that someone the different parts of Medina taking care of that and the the strategic trench which was dug Subhanallah was heavily protected by the Muslims, which means nobody can come in a crema Abidjan, tried to come in, he was immediately attacked. In fact, there was another man

00:41:38--> 00:41:45

who tried to come in as well and he was also attacked, but before we get to that, in the meantime in Madina, munawwara

00:41:46--> 00:42:05

Something happened Bhanu Kaurava decided, you know what, we need to see how best we can attack the Muslims from behind. So, let us first go and try and cause disturbance amongst the women and children who are left in the city. So as they sent a spy, Sophia, Binti Abdullah,

00:42:06--> 00:42:10

who was the aunt of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and the sister of Hamza bin Abdullah.

00:42:11--> 00:42:20

She saw the spy come in to spy on the women and children in Medina. So she took a log, and she knocked him executing the man. He was executed.

00:42:21--> 00:42:53

Gone, why? espionage, the man was a spy. The man was guilty of a crime, a huge crime. And at the same time, he was coming to go back to Bangkok arriva to tell him that you can come and perhaps attack the women or anything could have happened. So when they saw that this man has been attacked by a log from behind the home, they thought that now there are many men who are also hidden within Madina munawwara so they did not bother going to attack there. So Hannah, look at the wisdom. Allah subhanho wa Taala had inspired this Sahaba to actually knock this man

00:42:54--> 00:43:05

in a way that the whole army had stayed behind and they were protected. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us as well. As we said he might try to come through the

00:43:06--> 00:43:12

trench. They attacked him. He had to go back then there was a man known as

00:43:14--> 00:43:24

this man, Omri bnab, David, he tried to come into the trench in order to get to the Muslim side, and Algeria, Allahu anhu, attacked him.

00:43:25--> 00:44:07

And he died on the Muslim side, which means he had come almost to where the Muslims were, he when he died, Quraysh offered money to say, we will pay you whatever you want to retrieve this body. We want the body of the dead man, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam got up and said, this is a body it is a dirty body. It is a filthy body, the body of a mushrik we will never accept any money for it. Throw it meaning give it back to them. Give it back to them as is we don't want money for it. Because it would be selling a dead body and that would be Haram in the Sharia. You're selling a dead body. Why do you want to do that? May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us and grant us goodness, that body was

00:44:07--> 00:44:16

returned thereafter. And now as these people were camping, and they were trying and looking and thinking several things happened.

00:44:18--> 00:44:41

First, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam decided that we need to send someone into that camp to see exactly what is going on and what is happening. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam chose a man from hapa Fern who had accepted Islam and this man who had accepted Islam from Japan.

00:44:42--> 00:44:45

His name was no it may be the most rodallega funny.

00:44:47--> 00:44:50

No one from superfan knew that this man had accepted Islam.

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

So he says, Oh messenger, I can go and I can do anything because they don't even know. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam instructed him to go

00:45:00--> 00:45:05

I told him what to do. This man was extremely intelligent, very intelligent.

00:45:06--> 00:45:07

He went out.

00:45:08--> 00:45:13

And he arrived on the other side. And he spoke to a fan.

00:45:14--> 00:45:49

And he spoke to the Jewish tribe of Burnaby. And those who had come from haber, and he spoke to the people of Croatia, telling each one a different story. So he told these people of Quraysh that you see these Jewish people are asking you for a guarantee, because now they're getting tired. They're getting fed up, they're not trusting you anymore. Then he tells the people have gotta find you people are my people. We are going to be fought for no reason, what are we going to go back with. And then he tells the people of high bar or those the

00:45:51--> 00:46:06

top and the others, he tells the machine, Cora issues, mistrusting you, they are planning to leave, they want to go away. So each one began to doubt the other. So what happened the Alliance, there was now visible cracks that were there. And

00:46:07--> 00:46:22

this type of dissent began amongst the Alliance. In the meantime, the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam, called, some of the leaders have gotta hang on to this side, in order to silently strike a deal with him, he sent a messenger. And he brought two of their leaders.

00:46:23--> 00:47:00

And he told the two leaders one was even hidden, and the other one was inherited in the house. He says, Do you know what you people want to fight us? For what reason? The only thing you want is wealth. These people have promised you that they will give you the dates of high bar for one year. Well, what if we promise you one set of the dates of Medina or one third of the produce of Medina? Would you then go away? The CDs will go away? Because the only thing we want his money? If we getting it without a fight? Why should we fight, but we want more than one third, the Prophet says no, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, you get one third, if we agree, we sign an agreement that we will

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

give you one third of the produce of Medina for the year on condition that you leave this Confederation and you return and you do not find the Muslims and so on and so forth. So the people have gotta find agreed and they said, Okay, we're going to go in the meantime, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had a habit, he always consulted his companions. So he looked at Sadiq know, Mohan rhodiola, on the head of he says, oh, sad. What's your opinion? Sir, it says, Why should we pay them our produce for what? Let them go back alone will give us victory.

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

Why should we

00:47:34--> 00:48:14

promise these people one third of our produce, we as it is, we are going to win this war is going to be won by us. And it's impossible for us not to win this by the will of Allah and the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now we should strike an agreement. So these two people were shocked because he wasn't the only one who said that. The other companions agreed with him. They said we do not want we do not want to strike an agreement with Fatah and send them back. They asked or messenger sallallahu Sallam is this revelation, or can we say something? And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says no, you can say whatever you want, because we are still trying to agree with these people. They refused flat

00:48:14--> 00:48:25

so the people have often had to go back when they went back there was even a bigger disaster, because now they will correct amongst the people of South Africa. They were getting tired. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:48:26--> 00:48:37

sent his help after Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam made a lot of dua, and after so many days to panela so many days, Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran.

00:48:39--> 00:48:42

Yeah, Latina man was COO,

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

COO,

00:48:46--> 00:48:47

coo.

00:48:50--> 00:48:51

de

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

la

00:48:58--> 00:49:15

are you who believe, remember the favor of Allah upon you, the day that the Alliance and the Confederates had come to you? And we sent to them a very strong, cold wind and armies that you did not see the angels had also come.

00:49:17--> 00:49:57

And Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this favor upon the believers. So the weather conditions began to change, miraculously. Why do we say miraculously, there was only a trench between the muslimeen and the co founder. And on that side, it was cold wind, and then it started to rain and there was quite a lot of chaos. And on the side, there was absolutely nothing so Pamela, this was another Miracle Morning Giza of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one of the miracles of Nagoya, Allah had granted to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Muslims were camped in different places. If we visit today, one of the places by Jebel Silla in Madina, munawwara the mount

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

of Silla, were part of the trench was dug

00:50:00--> 00:50:38

There is a massive mystery there, and they will show you this is the place where Abu Bakr, Siddiq and who had camped, this is the place where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had camped, and this is the place where, for example, a friend of the Allahu anhu had camped and so on, it is still there, and we can go and actually see where this thing happened. So, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had made a lot of dua, and part of his job. It's important to say the words he said, he says, Oh Allah who revealed this book, and Oh Allah, who has full control of the clouds. Oh Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:50:40--> 00:50:58

who will destroy these Confederates, split them up and destroy them. And Allah subhanho wa Taala after some time, since this rain, and this rain came in, and not only the rain, but severe wind, what did the wind do? Cold when the fires were extinguished,

00:50:59--> 00:51:00

the tents were flying.

00:51:01--> 00:51:33

The horses became hysterical. And the people were becoming very ill and sick. And they decided, no, we need to leave. So a group started leaving and other groups started leaving, and these people started leaving Subhan Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of this gift that Allah subhanho wa Taala had given Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it's important we make mention of one other person who took over who played a very important role in this battle. His name was with Eva evenly among Allah and

00:51:34--> 00:51:39

the Prophet sallallahu. wasallam says, Who can go and spy for us on the other side, be careful.

00:51:41--> 00:52:18

And a little while later, when he saw that no one is responding. He says, Oh, hello, Ava, get up and go for us. On the other side, be careful, bring us news of the people. So they happen to be a man in the evening when it was very dark, and the wind was blowing and so on. It had already started blowing. He went on to the other side. And as he was sitting, he was listening to everything. And he says, Well, I was so close to Abu sufian had, if I wanted I could have taken my spear and executed in de Abu sufian was the leader of the enemy. And he says, but I did not do that. Because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, Be careful. And don't let them find out about you when you don't

00:52:18--> 00:52:34

give yourself up. And he says then in the evening, Abu sufian, since something, so he says, Oh my people, I fear there is a spy amongst us. So each one of you grab hold of the person next to you, and ask him his name.

00:52:35--> 00:53:13

So as soon as a man heard this, he immediately picked the name of the person next to him and said, What's your name? He says, I'm Maria and he picked the one next he says, What's your name? He says, I'm an herbalist and he was quiet No one asked him who are you? Because he had asked both of them Subhana Allah. And when he came back, he told Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam what had happened, and this was also a miracle way. He was very intelligent. He immediately asked what's your name? What's your name? And so nobody asked him what was his name? May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors. These people thereafter were dispersed by Allah subhanho wa Taala and verses were revealed in the

00:53:13--> 00:53:15

whole surah known as

00:53:16--> 00:53:53

we Allah makes mention of the hypocrites and how they had wanted to go back in Allah subhanho wa Taala makes mention of how they were people who really felt that on this day the Muslims would not be victorious but Allah says with with our power, we chased them away. We sent them they went back to Mecca, Tomoko Rama and they had lost and inshallah tomorrow we will go through some of these verses that expose the hypocrisy and at the same time, we will see what happened to those people who had sided with the enemy thinking that on that day, the Muslims would never win and they broke their Treaty. What did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam do to them? inshallah, we will see that

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

tomorrow until then, sort Allahu wa salam Obara, Carolyn Amina Mohammed Subhana, Allah Subhana, Allah homodiegetic shadow Allah, Allah, Allah
