Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala
nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa
We commence by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala sending blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless him and his entire household, all his companions, may Allah bless them. And may He bless all those who have struggled and strive from the very beginning to learn the deen to put it into practice, to fulfill it to convey to others in a way that today it has got to us. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless every single one of us and use us also for the same and to convey the message inshallah to our offspring and to those around us in a way that we would be of service to the dean and of the inshallah earning the pleasure
of Allah subhanho wa Taala. I mean, beloved brothers and sisters was under the Roman Empire. He was not the king of the Romans, but he was the Emperor at the time of that particular area that fell under the Roman Empire. So we also heard of how he reacted and how he asked several questions, and the fact that he knew what was right and wrong, but because he wanted to stick to his throne, and he did not want to earn the wrath of his own men, and that is why he did not accept the message, but he sent back to heaven hell, if I can be with much respect, a point that he that we learn from this particular incident is when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wrote a letter to Hera to this
heraclius, his companions told him, this man is not going to read your letter, because in order to officialize letters, which go to the Romans, you need to have a stamp on the letter. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, then asked some of his companions, what should be done, and they suggested to him, that he get a ring that was made of silver with his name on it Mohammedan Rasulullah. And what would happen is normally, it would be written starting from the bottom going up, so Mohammedan rasuluh, Allah, and therefore he had a ring, this was not part of jewelry, but it was part of the stamping that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had decided to do because of
the letters that had to be sent to these Romans, and the fact that they would not be read unless they had a stamp. We learn a lot from this. This was something that was not the way of the Muslims, but it became the way of the Muslims when the Prophet salallahu Salam did it, he heard that they were doing it, and therefore in order to give the message across or to get the message across, he decided to do something that was new to Islam and the Muslims. And from this very interesting point that I just want to add in here. Some of the people say it is to not wear a silver ring. And some of the scholars say no, it is assumed not to wear a ring. If you cannot read and write and you have
your name inscribed on it, and you would like to stamp letters, so it's just a little difference of opinion. May Allah subhanahu wa taala bless us and grant us the acceptance to follow the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam many times we find we just follow that which is convenient for us. And when it comes to those things that are a little bit more difficult, we tend to ignore them completely. May Allah subhanahu wa taala open our doors. So the hadith of this ring is mentioned in Sahih al Bukhari reported by nsabp, Malika Viola one and he says I could actually see the white mark on the finger of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam from the ring.
The other letter that was sent was sent to kisara the Persians what we know today as Eon that is where kisara was based, and the men sent to him was Abdullah hypno dafa, a semi rhodiola. And whether he got exactly to kiss rock right there, or whether the letter was then taken by one of kisser as men, there are two narrations but when kisara got the letter of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he became so angry, so upset, who is this man he ripped the letter of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam threw it on the floor and stamped on it. What a great disrespect. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam heard of this reaction? He said masala homolka who may Allah
rip his kingdom as well, in the same way he has ripped our letter, there was no need to rip the letter. So it is reported that within a very short space of time, there was civil war in Persia and his own son murdered him and took over and there was chaos which resulted in the end of that particular Empire. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us strings, and May He grant us a lesson. We do not
disrespect that which is sacred in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors, then there was an A Joshi, we know the nagus who was based in Abyssinia, the Muslims but with the leadership of Jaffa the Allahu anhu was sent for the first migration to a senior, they were still there. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wrote another letter to him. several letters were actually written to this Najafi, his name was hammer. And the nagus was just the title given to the leader of Abba senior where we would say Ethiopia, Eritrea, that is today, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all a lesson from what had happened, when the letter came, it came with
Imran obioma of bari rhodiola one and he presented it to Anna Joshi and modjadji read it, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam always wrote, connecting the writing to the beliefs of the particular person he was writing to. So when he wrote to me, he, he made a few clarifications about Jesus May peace be upon him, this is who he was, and this is what we believe he is and so on. So and he read the letter. He thereafter said, Look, I know that this is all correct. I actually believe it. But I would like you to know that I don't have much support amongst my top brass and therefore give me a little bit of time and I will then gain that support. And thereafter I will announce that
we have accepted this faith and so on. So these are the narrations that make mention of the negative of Abba sr, and what his response was. and thereafter, it is also made mention of another letter that was written to an A joshy which I will pause for a moment and make mention of right now. There was a Sahaba known as humla Binti Abby sofian, the daughter of Abu sufian himself, her name was Rama Binti, Abby Sophia. She was married to a man known as Obaidullah Ebony jash the brother of Abdullah have no Josh or the law. This obey the law even with his wife, Rama, Vinci, Sophia, and they were from amongst the believers who believed early and they had migrated to a senior, this man passed
away exactly how he passed away there are different narrations, some say he had developed bad habits and so on. And he passed away and this Daughter of Abu Sophia and she was now known as omo Habiba because she had had a child known as Habiba from obey the law of nature. So because she was the daughter of the leader, and now she is without a husband, What should she do? She was an elderly lady. She wasn't a young girl. And she had made hegira she was from amongst the first believers, which means if we were to make them, or if we were to consider those who had accepted Islam before the migration to Abyssinia as the first believers, she was from amongst them. And so, if she
returned to Makkah, she was going to be persecuted being What a disgrace to Abu sufian being a leader, and his daughter is following Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and if she was to go elsewhere, what would happen to her so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wrote a letter to he sent it with one of his companions, and told him that when this woman has completed her in a certain period of time, then I would like to marry her. So she was married to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while she was still in Abu Simeon, and the eye of this Najafi that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had sent and her guardian was a man known as Harley dibny saved even in the long
On Mojave bajo de la Juana became known as Omar meaning. She became known as the mother of the believers from LA Vinci, Abby sofian. And by this action, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam became very closely related to Abu sufian Allah and so much so that he was married to his own daughter. So this had happened in a senior and later on, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had instructed the men who had carried the letter who was amritanandamayi have memory or memory of the law and to find out about those who had migrated and informed them that we are sitting in a period of grace and you may now return to Al Madina, munawwara they began to plan and to prepare, and they
then they lent later started their journey inshallah, we will get to when they arrived in Madina, munawwara just as the victory of Khyber was announced. This is when Jafar Ibn Abu Talib and the others had arrived in Madina munawwara together with Mojave bajo de la Juana May Allah subhanahu wa Jalla be pleased with her. So if you look at Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his marriages, they were always out
Out of the mercy that Allah had placed in his heart for those who had sacrificed for the purpose of the deen. He had gone forth in order to save them from difficulty to give them the guardianship that they needed, and in order to be a pillar of support and strength for them, and this has happened in most of the cases as you know, he only married one virgin the rest of them were non virgins May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson from this way are those who want to point fingers at Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam they cannot even be kind to their own wives and they want to speak sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had such a great
concern that he used to encourage his companions to look after the widows, the divorce, the orphans, those who have sacrificed for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Thereafter, another letter was sent to a man known as moko kiss Elmo kiss. He was the leader of Egypt at the time, and it is reported that helped him with NaVi belt and according to some historians, was sent to Alma Kokesh with the letter. This man got the letter. He did not accept Islam, he understood very well what the letter said. And he decided, look, let me send some gifts with this man how to be nappy belt, or the Allahu anhu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he makes mention of something important. He wrote back a letter. And he says, Look, I have understood what you've said and what you know. So on and I am sending you a few gifts from amongst
them are two ladies. Now the term jatiya does not necessarily refer to slave girls. No. It also refers to young girls, and it refers to young ladies as well. You could say Acharya referring to a younger. So he says, I am sending you two of these girls who are from the highest lineages of the the above or the Coptic Christians of Egypt, and remember Christianity and Islam, as well as Judaism. They come from the same lantern as what Natasha had said, from the same Lenten meaning, the pure form of Judaism and the pure form of Christianity would lead you to the pure form of Islam. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness. And then when he had sent, he sent an animal as well, a
mule according to some narrations to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam with a few other gifts, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then took Maria halcon Priya and according to some narrations married her. And according to some narrations, he remained with her as a person who was gifted to him sallallahu alayhi wasallam. I would incline more to the narration that states that he married her son Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he had a child from her known as Ibrahim even Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who passed away in his infancy, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala. To grant us goodness, many of us sometimes look at those who have lost children in their infancy, and we lose
track of the words we want to say to them one of the most powerful words we could attend to them, after the DA and the reminder that everything is in the hands of Allah is to remind them of what happened to the most blessed and best of creation, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he lost most of his children before he passed away. And he lost more than one wife before he passed away to Panama. So he had lost many of his relatives. In fact, he was born an orphan and he lost his mother when he was also quite young. Thereafter, we find a letter that was written to the ribbon Sauer and Abdi of behind the king of Bahrain, this man, abu allah al amin was sent to him rhodiola Han, and when he
got the letter, he understood it he accepted Islam, and all the Arabs of Bahrain accepted Islam as well. They accepted Islam with him, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received the response from him. And one of the methods of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was that he did not remove those people from the leadership that they were holding, but rather he helped them he guided them and they remained the leaders. So he remained the leader of Bahrain. And he was instructed what to do with the others and so on. And he was given instructions by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which he followed properly. Thereafter, there was a letter also that
was sent to one of the leaders of Yemen, one of the O'Meara, one of the leaders of Yemen, who was known according to some of the historians as bother and even satsang. And this man had accepted Islam. The same thing happened. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam kept him there in Yemen. And even after he had passed away, his son was allowed to take over from him. And then there was a letter that was sent to the Emir of busara. That was also going up north to the region of a sham
where the Romans had been ruling and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam sent a companion known as
heritage numero es de la de la one on the way to Basra. He passed
and the Mata Mata is the name of an area. The Knights, the people from the clan of Hassan. They were ruling there. And one of the men shahabi libnah amarula Sonny, he got hold of this ambassador of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where are you going? He says, I'm going to the Emir of Basra. So he tied him up and executed him. So this was a messenger who was killed. Later on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam prepared an army of 3000 men that marched onto Mata and inshallah, we will get to that by the will of Allah, perhaps tomorrow, we will look into that particular war. The reason of that war with those Romans was because they had executed a man who was an ambassador to
Rasulullah from Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam to them, so people must not think that the Muslims went out in order to spread their religion by the sword. Never did that happen. So panela it was those who had attacked the Muslims, those who had harmed them, revenge was permitted, retaliation was permitted. And therefore, when they were attacked, they had attacked back here there was a men, one man was executed. What do you want the Muslims to do? sit back and wait for the rest of them to be attacked, or prepare and go and tackle them? Why did you do this to our men? May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a deep understanding.
Thereafter, they will let us also that were sent
later on in the eighth year of hegira. Remember, these letters were not all sent together. I'm just clustering them together, but they were spaced out. Some of them were sent right at the beginning while others were sent even later on.
The other one who was not yet a Muslim, but after he accepted Islam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent him as well to Oman. And they were to leave his day in Oman, it is reported the names were just jfr and avid. They were known as El Jalan D. And these people, they accepted Islam as well as the Allahu anhu, who had accepted Islam. By the time he had taken the letters and gone. He had been brought news to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of the acceptance of Islam of these particular leaders. So these were just some of the letters that were sent by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. As you notice, what happened is Islam spread, it spread further than Quraysh would
ever have dreamt of. And this is why, amazingly, not only was Abu sufian from amongst those who heard with his own ears, what he actually has had to say, but the others actually accepted Islam. And not only tribes nations accepted Islam just by listening, and by understanding this message is good. I haven't gone into the details. But there are very interesting details mentioned in the books of Sierra and the books of history where Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a lesson.
Now, in the seventh year of hegira, in Muharram, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
had had, obviously a treaty with the people of courage, so he was not fighting the people of courage, nor was he fighting those who were allied to the people of courage. There was an agreement we won't fight 10 years peace. But what about those Jewish tribes in haber that had made the Alliance or they were responsible for forming the alliance of the Confederates that had come to fight resulting in the Battle of the trench, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not forget that. He now told these people get ready we are going to favor because these people from Burnaby remember, there was a man known as
he was one of the leaders of Burnaby. He had also run away to haber, but somehow he was in Baku pariah the time when we're being executed and he was one of them, who was also executed at the time, according to the books of Sierra.
But however, his people and some others were there, including a daughter of his known as Sophia Sophia Binti.
Later on to be known as rhodiola. Anna, she accepted Islam just after labor. So the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam prepared an army and they went up to haber. This, they had fought these people of the book. And these people were sophisticated people, they had built their homes in a very sophisticated way. They had had three clusters of fortresses. The first cluster had three fourths. The second cluster had two fourths and the third cluster had three fourths and they were built interleading in such a way that you could actually disappear from one to the other. They were underground tunnels also interleading some of these forts they were complicated people, and they had
mastered the art of fighting so panela and they were waiting
prepared for the Muslims because they knew we are the ones who have assisted and have had masterminded the whole Alliance. And today we are sitting, those who have made peace, we are in trouble. So they knew this was coming. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam went to them Subhana Allah. And the first thing he got to one of I'm not going to take the names of every single fort, there are plenty forts, but he got to the first one. And as he got there, they wanted to fight him the Prophet sallallahu Sallam thought, let us cut down some of their trees in order for them to see the numbers that we have come in. And we are here seriously, we are here in order to retaliate
there, masterminding of the army that came to wipe us out Subhan Allah, and by the help of Allah, the Muslims have won, they were victorious. Remember, the wind came, and the angels came, and so on.
So after they had cut it down, these people, they still wanted to fight. The Muslims overcame them, and they had run through to the next foot. See Subhan Allah, very intelligent people. Then when it came to the second thought, what had happened? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam surrounded them, and there was fighting that happened there again.
There was an attack that took place. And after some time, it was quite difficult. These people were attacking, how were they attacking with arrows with spears, and then amarapura,
who succeeded to get hold of one of the men who was trying to run away in the night. And when he caught him, he brought him to Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. He says, oh, messenger, I caught this man. So he says, Look, don't harm me. If you don't harm me, I will give you information of how to overcome these people. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, What is the news that you have? He says, These people are preparing to attack you tomorrow with the army, the meaning they are going to come weaponry, they want to attack you. If you overcome them, I will lead you to a house where they are so many catapults. Now they had huge catapults. What is known in the Arabic language is a man
genic more like a cannon, where they would put a ball of fire on one end of it, and then literally propel that in a way that it would get into wherever they wanted it to get into. And it would cause disaster and loss of life. And the fire and perhaps chaos, more like a little missile as we would word it today. missile launcher, but obviously of a long time ago. And what happened is he said there are these magenic in this home, together with so many different armors and swords and many different weapons. So it happened that the following day they fought the Muslims overcame them. They were led to this home.
And before the Muslims actually went in, there is something historic that took place in hybrids so much of the car, so much of the ahaadeeth that make mention of rules and regulations you find if you were to look where did this come from? It was when they were inhaber the Muslims spent just under a month in haber according to some narrations, which means a long period of time, they were inhaber.
And some of the fourth they had gone in without a battle. Some of them they have surrounded them for a lot for a few days. Some of them they had fought and got in. So they were different types of entrances into the fourth by the Muslim in that evening, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam looks at his companions. And he speaks to Mohammed de mesilla who was a warrior he was known as one of the leaders of the Muslim armies. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam says,
tomorrow, I will give this flag to a man whom Allah and His Messenger love and he loves them. A man who loves Allah and His Messenger, and they love him as well.
So everyone who spent the night hoping that it was going to be then amarapura sobre la who says never ever had I hoped to be given some form of honor than that particular day. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala is bearing witness with the blessing lips of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that a man who loves Allah and His Messenger, and Allah and His Messenger love him to
in the morning, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam calls out where is it if not be alone. So they said, Well, he is somewhere because he's complaining of his eye. He had an infection in his eye. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam called him and blew into his eye with a slight bit of saliva going into his eye, and it was cured almost instantly. So Panama this was a miracle of Nevada as well. He blew into the eye, and the idea of the law and who was cured, he gave it that flag.
That title and the honor of the day, and he reminded me that Oh Allah, Allah when you are going into Haven, you are going to enter here. Remember latonya de Allahu bhikaji Lanois hidden caminho Marina
for Allah to guide through you one person is better for you than the most expensive of the material wealth that we have here. It was known as promoting Nam, which means the red camel, red camel means today for example, you have, what can we say, top of the range motor vehicle. This is better for you than that may Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us goodness.
So even whilst he was being sent into hyper, he was warned, we should not be fighting to kill people. And you see, there was something amazing that Islam came up with.
If there was a criminal, we need to listen very carefully because people have misunderstood this. If there was a criminal or there were people who were enemies, they had fought Islam, they had tried to murder or they had even caused murder. And they were caught marshaled, to be executed, and therefore armies went in order to execute them. They had a way out, what was the way out? They had something that people did not know before.
gift, what was the gift? If you say la ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah if you enter the fold of Islam, we will forget what happened in the past, you become our brother, instantaneously. This was amazing. So it does not mean that the Muslims killed people, or murdered people, because they wanted them to enter Islam. No, but the people who were murderers and the people who were criminals, were given an option that you will be rehabilitated instantaneously by entering the fold of Islam, if you opt to do that some people opt in and they were saved. This is why the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says that it is amazing how one man is murdering another and yet both of them are going to be in
paradise SubhanAllah. And we can give you many examples of that. Carly depends on who he made companions who were in Paradise, and by the will of Allah perhaps he will also be in paradise. But more than hardly, depending on who we speak of the killer of Hamza, Allah when he became a Muslim things were deleted completely. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all gender. So the Muslims, they did not compel people except Islam. No. All they said is look you people are criminals, you're going to be executed because of these crimes that you know you have done. In most cases, these people agreed and they said no, we definitely do know we are guilty. And there if you really want to
be forgiven completely, there is one way out of that. You can enter the fold of Islam. And if you become our brother, then we will forget about what happened in the past. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding I hope I've clarified that for people because many people to be honest with you think that Muslims fought and said we're going to fight you until you accept Islam What that means is we will fight those who are criminals but if they decide to accept Islam, which we will invite them towards, then we stop we're not allowed to
harm them. Amir Elena's Pattaya kulu La ilaha illAllah I have been ordered to fight the people here talking of the criminals who had fought Islam and who deserved to be executed until and unless they utter Allah, Allah Allah if they utter that I'm not allowed to harm them and his album Allah, their record is between them and Allah subhanho wa Taala. In fact, Osama bin Zayed or the Allahu anhu was sent on one of the platoons and he had met a man one of the machines and this machinery CAD was about to be executed and he said, La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah I bet with this that there is none worthy of worship but Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is
His Messenger, who sama bin Zayed executed him.
When they got to Madina, munawwara the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was visibly upset, very, very angry. And he said, How could you do that when he said La ilaha illa Allah, how could you do that? Osama says oh messenger. According to me, He only said it to be saved from execution. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said and even if that was the case, have you opened his chest to look at his heart to see upon what condition he uttered those words, the minute they utter those words, they become your brothers in faith, Allahu Akbar. Today it's opposite. We have Muslims in our midst. We look for a reason to take him out of Islam. Have you noticed that? So we have people Mashallah who
are muslimeen not only at Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, they are in the masjid with you as well Mashallah reading Salah. They know the Quran and so on and people
Today actually look for a reason to remove a person from the fold of Islam and call him a non Muslim. Where are we? And where is the son of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam where he says once they utter the word The rest is between them and Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors, and May He grant us goodness. So then they had got from there, they fought, and the people of Khyber from that particular fort or from the first group of forts. As we said, they were three clusters. The Muslims were victorious, they proceeded to the second cluster, something similar happened, there were one by one, they were either fought or they were surrounded,
and some of them had surrendered and so on. Every force that they had gone into, they found a lot of wealth, a lot of wealth Subhanallah and they found different types of wealth, different thoughts specialized in keeping different types of wealth, may Allah subhanahu wa taala, grant us, goodness and may grant us Baraka in our own sustenance.
When they got to the fourth fourth, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam surrounded him for three days. Then someone told him from amongst them, he said, I will show you the water, the water that is coming in where it is coming into the fort from. So when the Prophet sallallaahu, Selim saw that he blocked the water in order to make them come out, because they were heavily 45. In no time they came out, they began to fight, they will overcome by the muslimeen. And there thereafter, they ran elsewhere to the next fort. This was something amazing. And this is why you find some of the names of the warriors of the muslimeen, who had fought heavily on that day, one of them Alibaba, Alibaba,
one, the other alphabet, not the law. And the third is Abu Jana, the one who fought in office, we say he was a warrior, Mashallah he had taken the sword and until that sword was a was completely used and bettered. He continued in the Battle of offered, and this year, on this day as well. He was one of those warriors whom they all make mention of how brave he was. Thereafter, they had been surrounded for a total of approximately 20 days in a row. And then the last two forts, they surrendered without any war whatsoever. They said, Look, you know, what we're giving you this was a heavy war, Mashallah.
And it resulted in great openings for the Muslim men. And Quraysh was not involved because these people were not under the Treaty of Croatia. These were the people of Haven and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam decided that he will allow the people of hyper to remain in hyper
unconditioned, that whenever that agreement was to come to an end, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam could bring in fact, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam could bring that agreement to an end at any time to say when we want you to leave, we will give you notice, and you're going to have to go they agree, because they know what crimes they committed against the Muslims. Why would they agree if they were innocent people, why would the Muslims attack innocent people that has never ever been the case? So, this is why you find now inhaber this had happened and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told him, You have all these date palms and the farms of dates, paper is full of date palms, the
Prophet sallallahu Sallam said you will work on them, they belong to us, but because of your work, whatever produce comes out of it, you take half we take half Alhamdulillah This helped the Muslims a lot because they did not have expertise number one, the answer did have expertise. The Mahajan did not but
what was of importance is the Muslim men were needed for other escapades and for other missions and to spread Islam far and wide. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam decided to use them and haber Mashallah produced a lot, so much so that Abdullayev na, Allah who used to be sent there, in order to take stock of the produce, they tried to bribe him once for the loved one. He says, What are you talking about? You want to bribe me? I am coming from the most beloved person to me, you want to bribe me too? underestimate what you have, or to write wrongly. I don't know what the exact term is, but I'm sure there is a term where they want him to lie that the produce was less than what it
actually was so that they don't have to give the half. Allah subhanho wa Taala say if God does it perfectly typical May Allah Subhana Allah to Allah protect us all. So in this way, Mashallah. haber was victorious, meaning the Muslims had been granted victory in favor. There was one major execution that happened in haber, a man known as Kenan Ebner via the Prophet sallallahu Sallam knew of the treasure of a bonobo who was the leader of MonaVie and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam knew that
This man had taken that treasure and it was now in favor. So he was looking for it because it was a treasure it had in it must some scent and it had in it some jewelry and some various other items. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked Keenan Abner Robbie, where is it? He said no, it went with the war. We spent it because we had to prepare buying all this and then so we sold it and we bought weapons with it. He was lying. And this man was a criminal. So later on, they found the whole treasure the Muslims, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam instructed that this man, we don't want to forgive him like we are going to forgive the rest. See the rest were forgiven. Why were they
forgiven? They pleaded with the Prophet sallallahu sallam, please don't execute us and please don't send us anyway and so on. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam agreed It is reported that 93 from amongst them lost their lives on that day from amongst the enemy. And from amongst the Muslims 15 martyrs
in the whole stay in haber 15 martyrs and from them 93 the rest of them were allowed to remain there. And they were working on the fields from amongst those who were taken captive
prisoner of war. One of them was Sophia Binti, the daughter of this
who was executed in Monaco.
So, when she was taken captive, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then married her after she accepted Islam, Sophia been Tierra de la she became known as omo meaning it is reported she became one of the most pious Muslim ladies that there was Subhanallah and she was such she was a soft spoken person. And she had a lot of respect for the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi. wasallam, obviously being humble meaning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam married her and protected that leadership meaning the high status that she had had before. When she accepted Islam, she got an even higher status because now she was the wife of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, she used to be the
daughter of a leader. Now she became the wife of a supreme leader. Subhana Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding and may He opened our doors, and May He grant us really spouses who will be the coolness of our eyes.
So Alhamdulillah this was what happened in Hebrew. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam was married. We spoke about his marriage to omo Habiba. Her name was Rama Vinci Abbey sufian inhibition. We spoke about the reasons here Sophia Vinci, we spoke about the reasons and at the same time, there was a type of marriage that was prevalent from the pagan days. On the day of Tabor, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam got up and made an announcement that Allah has revealed to me that this type of marriage is prohibited from this day on what was the type of marriage from the pagan days they used to marry a woman when they are on journey or some way for convenience they would marry a woman with an expiry
date on the marriage certificate, believe me, there was actually an expiry date a look at all the smiles here lo Akbar. Allah says goddess, this was known as Nikhil Mata Mata, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam clearly said in a hadith that are extremely authentic in most books of Hadith, you will find the Hadith on the day of Faber he stood up, and he made an announcement that this type of marriage is prohibited. It was a pagan marriage that followed through from the time and as you know, things were being made prohibited in stages. So on the day of labor that was prohibited, and at the same time, the consumption of donkeys was also prohibited. It was permissible before that, but from that
day, the domesticated donkey prohibited nobody's allowed to eat that anymore. So panela so I see nobody eats donkeys May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us protection, and may He opened our doors. And as we said, This Nika a temporary marriage was prohibited by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. These marriages that are temporary known as Mota, where a person gets married for a few hours, or a few days, or a few months or a convenient time, and decides I will pay you in view of the amount of time I have stayed with you prohibited on the day of labor, and we should all know this, and we should understand and realize this. As the runner in binary, meaning the spoils of war
were now being gathered. Something very, very powerful happened jaffery polypro, the Allahu Allah. He came with the group of people who had migrated to Abba Sr. He arrived that day in HyperX Subhana Allah as he was coming back to Al Madina, munawwara Piper is not very far out from Madina, munawwara perhaps approximately 100 miles out of Medina. So jaffery came with the rest of the Sahaba reported that when the Prophet salallahu Salam saw him, he kissed him on his forehead. So long
Na Na he was in them. And they are after he gave them a good share from what was received on the day of labor. The Muslims became extremely wealthy Subhan Allah, and they, Allah subhanho wa Taala had sent down so many rules and regulations regarding what was received on the day of favor. And it was given also to Jafar ibn Abi Talib, and those who were very poor people who had gone to habashi. Also something very interesting Abu Musab al ashari. From the HIV, the HIV tribe, they had left Yemen in order to get to Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, they jumped into the boat and they say their boat drifted, and it ended in habashi. It ended in Abyssinia. They met Jeffrey, Allah who remained there
with him until the day he left so they also arrived in haber together with Jaffa. Allah and Abu Salah Sharia law one he has narrated so many Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he says I was the youngest of the lot on that day. Alhamdulillah Allah Subhana Allah, Allah grant His goodness, this was what had happened at that particular time. Then, after the Battle of Tabor, there were several groups of people who were also from amongst the people similar to those inhaber, who had had settled in various places, the Muslim army went and what they did is, one by one, they struck agreements with them, they made peace with them in some places, there was a little bit of a skirmish
a bit of a war, and thereafter there was an agreement signed, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam either remove them or he kept them in some instances and told them you may plant and you may harvest and we will share half half just as we did with the people of cable, plus a lot of sell them by Allah subhanho wa Taala for himself and his family, which means whatever came from FedEx,
it was meant for the clan of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the poor from amongst them, were looked after by it more like an endowment to look after those from there.
Then after, in fact, there was another area also known as tamer where also the Muslims had become victorious afterward in something very powerful happened.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam if you recall the previous year, they had been stopped from going to fulfill the hombre now a year later. They were planning to go for that hombre according to the agreement, correct. You said we will come out of the Haram for three days you will come in. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam got his companions ready. According to one narration, he wore his arm from the masjid nabawi. And he will and as they went out by the believer, he instructed his companions to take their weapons. They said oh messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we promised these people not to take our weapons. He said, No, we will not take them into the harem. But in case
someone intends to break any agreement, we will be ready. This time we're going to have it. So they took their weapons and they proceeded from the eleva. Until one of the in fact the Muslims had sent out a little army. When they got to the Muslims. They saw these people are heavily armed. They went back to report to Quraysh and Abu sufian and the others that the Muslims are coming but they are heavily armed. Immediately they sent messengers to say, oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we never ever knew you to break a single promise in your life. Why is it that you are coming with weapons? He said, according to our agreement, we will not intermec our weapons, so we will leave our
weapons outside Mecca and then we will enter Subhana Allah.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was extremely intelligent, it is reported in some of the books of history, or had they not taken these weapons. Perhaps these people with their evil intentions may have wanted to wipe out the Muslim in only Allah knows. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us strength. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had had 70 camels or sorry 60 camels for heavy heavy meaning sacrificial animals which they wanted to sacrifice in muckety muck Allah. And when they got to a place known as linear Qaeda, they left some of the companions there, and they left their weapons there. And they proceeded into the Heron whilst bridge had just left the Hara.
Hara meaning it's not such a big area, the the Quraysh In fact, the leaders had left some of the smaller people who are not so important in Quraysh were there. However, what had happened is they were sitting on a hillock and they began to say you see these people in a harem. This is important we listen to this because it affects us when we go for ombre now.
The people of courage began began to say you see these people in a home they are sick, they have the disease.
As of yesterday, if you recall we said in Medina, there was a disease there was a plague or a flu or some form of a disease that used to overtake them on an annual basis. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam made a dua, and this was actually taken out to Georgia. So Quraysh was laughing. Look at these people, they are so thin, they are so small, we can wipe these people out. And you know, they were just talking and laughing, making a joke. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam then ordered what was known as Riba and what is known as an animal.
So he instructed his companions to open the right side of the arm so that the arm is showing to show the muscle on the right side and stick the chest out to show them that we are not little, you know, people who are weaklings, we are strong men, and we walk in a proper way as though an army is working. So, you see when an army's walking, the way they walk, they walk with proper posture, they don't walk slouched and so on. So as they were walking in that particular way, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was on his camera, he made poweroff on his camera, and when he kissed the hijab, he did so with his stick, so, he would touch the huddle with his stick and then kiss the end
of the stick which touched the hijab. This is how the Prophet sallallahu Sallam made that particular tower on that day of Ratan Tata.
It is known as Amara to Kava, because it is the ombre that took place as a result of being sent back one of the years and coming back again. So, basically, they wanted to do it the previous year, they will now recompensing it by doing it the following year. So, after three rounds, these mushriks ran away. So now they were instructed, leave this open for the seven rounds, but you may now take it a bit calm when you're walking. And for that reason, up to today, when we as men go to Mecca for Amara, we need to open the right arm for the entire above all seven rounds, and we need to walk briskly with our chests sticking out slightly for the first three rounds. I'm sure we know this.
This is the history of it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our doors, and grant is goodness the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thereafter
when he had completed his Ramadan
there was something that had happened in Mecca.
A lady by the name of mamoon at Abington, Harris, Robbie Allahu Allah, Allah hilarya. She was related to a male father being assisted and related to an abusive nap. dimopoulos she was from amongst the Muslims, the early Muslims her husband had passed away as well. His name was Abrahamic, even Abdullah Rosa and Abbess Ravi Allahu anhu, wanted to get her married to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she would then go with them to Madina, munawwara and at least be protected. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam agreed, Mashallah. And this was the last of the women that he had married. Her name was maimunah turbin till Harris and hilarya radi Allahu Allah, not related to
jewelry at a dental heritage.
Who was someone else? So together, we spoke about her, but they were both co wives of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So he married her sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he took her out with him. And only later on instead of Cyrus is an area just outside muckety muck karma because they were only allowed three days in Makkah after that they had to leave. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam went to where the weapons were, and instructed those companions to go and make their Amara, when they came back, the Muslim mom even left the group of Muslims, when they got to an area known as sort of this is when they had the walima and this is when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam consummated
the marriage with maimunah, Vinton Harris, or the Allahu anhu. And this was a gift that Allah subhanho wa Taala had granted Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, if we take a look at this, we will come to know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most noble of all men that existed. He looked after so many people, and he was related to so many people, and at the same time, so Han Allah, he was of the highest character and conduct ever. The highest level of character the Quran says, we're in a gala holo Kenobi, indeed, you are on the highest level of character and conduct Subhan Allah.
Before I close this evening, I want to make mention of one of the gifts also to the Muslim Ummah, that had been given at that particular time after Humberto Baba Khalid Meanwhile, he wrote the Allahu anhu says, when the messenger came, when the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came for him murottal Kaaba. I was a very shy person. I decided I'm going to go out as well with the leaders of courage and I disappeared, I actually disappeared. I did not want to see the Muslims and I did not want to face
Those whom I had fought but he says in my heart, I always knew that I am fighting the losing party in the losing party. I am fighting in the losing party against those who are ultimately going to be victorious. He always knew it. He says whether it was in offered, whether it was in 100 whether it was anywhere else I always knew that I'm not going to win even the platoon that he was sent in, in order to waylay the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when they were coming for the Amara, and they had been ended up in for davia. If you remember, they changed their path. Even then he says, You know what, Roger Luma know this man. Subhan Allah, he's somehow protected. So he had had this in
his heart, and he was never very happy. He always felt I'm doing something wrong. It is reported that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam used to constantly ask his brother Ali Ali, who was a Muslim, and he was in Madina, munawwara he used to say, Where is Harley? Mommy's
a man like Harley, so intelligent, he cannot be ignorant of the fact that Islam is the correct religion. He's so intelligent, he cannot keep on worshipping his idols and so on. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam continued to say, yeah, TB Illa Allah will bring him soon. Holly who says that, you know, he had some friends, he spoke to them and so on. Some gave him this response, that response and he says thereafter, I'm ribbon alas. And
the three of them decided we are going to Madina munawwara and we're going to accept Islam. And this was just after him Ratan Tata. But what, what actually triggered it was something powerful, a letter written by Alan Mulally, who is the brother of Harley Davidson, when he to his own brother.
When he went formula toccata, he went to search for his brother, he wanted to tell him my brother, come on, you cannot continue on the wrong side, you've missed a lot of goodness. But because he didn't meet his brother, he wrote a letter and lifted, the brother came back, read the letter from his brother. He's saying, you know what, oh, Holly, you are on the wrong camp. You are in the wrong in the wrong camp on the wrong side. And at the same time, oh Holly, you are missing so much goodness, we are living in such goodness, we have highest character conduct we are worshipping Allah alone, we have left all the evil of the past and so on. So panela
it was written in the letter that the messenger keeps asking about you and he has hoped that you are definitely going to come and he has told us that you're going to come. So how did you close that letter? He asked a few people some questions he got hold of two of his friends amritanandamayi allow and as well as, as a man of Nutella are we allowing the three of them went to Medina menorah, and I'm cutting the story a little bit short. When they got to Madina munawwara they went
and his brother told him make haste go to Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he knows you are coming and he's waiting for you. So he was on good clothing. He had a bath and so on, and the rush to Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in Nashua de la ilaha illallah wa
Subhana Allah What happened?
One of the great warriors, one of those who was fighting
against Islam has now turned to Islam. Carly Ali, the man who was guilty of slaughtering so many Muslims on the day of
the man who was guilty for the losses suffered by the Muslims. On the day of offered. Here he is he came to Medina safe and sound. He says oh messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, these are his first words. He says make dua that Allah forgive me for every time I have been used in order to attack yourself and the Muslims and all the harm that I have caused. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam says yeah, in Islam, a Jew buma Kabbalah who, oh, Khalid, Islam delete, all the bad that was done before it. The minute you accept Islam, everything wiped out, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had a smile. Then, in some narration say he repeated this thrice, and harlot or the Allahu anhu says Allah Dallek
upon that condition, which means if it is that Alhamdulillah we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala he entered the fold of Islam. And this is the story of how he didn't worry, there'll be a law and we accepted Islam. Thereafter, amaryllis, and Mittal have also declared their Shahada. Although I'm originally also the Allahu anhu says that I already had the Islam within my heart and my heart was softened towards Islam already. The day when I went back to Najafi in order to lie to him in order to get Jafar Ibn Abu Talib and the the muslimeen back from Russia on that day when he got so upset, and he told me I know that what Mohammed has come with is indeed the truth on that day already.
Islam had started entering my heart. In fact, it Mahajan, and some of the others say that Amrit mullahs initially accepted Islam in Russia. But he had announced his Islam when he came with the military. So by these three warriors accepting Islam, from amongst the leaders of Polish, they were considered leaders of the, the army of Polish Subhan Allah, Islam had been granted so much strength and there was a new era in the Muslims in Madina, munawwara and in the region. On one hand, you have people entering Islam, you have groups of people coming to Medina to declare the Islam you have people who are accepting Islam even singularly top leaders and so on. And at the same time, you have
Quraysh their numbers are diminishing, and at the same time people who are supporting them are diminishing them. Now sorry are diminishing. The Quran says
our lm er o
Minato raffia Do they not see that we have come to the earth cutting its sights from around them, which means their grip on what they were ruling is becoming smaller and smaller and smaller. Qureshi is becoming more and more singular than they ever were before. May Allah Subhana Allah have mercy on us tomorrow inshallah we will continue we have a few more days and we hope and pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us a blessed ending to this series. For indeed we are in the month of Ramadan, let's make most of the most of this month to end the pleasure of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and to learn more about the seal of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allahu wa Sallim
wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhan Allah Subhana Allah home will be handy to Allah Allah in lantana
