In the fifth year of the fifth year after hinges of the life of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you have the Battle of trenches that took place. And the Muslims, they suffered immensely. There were betrayed by their by the people in the in the city, they were betrayed by the Jews. And now the next year comes which is the sixth year and at the end of the sixth year, the next major incident took place, which was the expedition or the Treaty of her Davia, where Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he saw a dream. And he saw a dream that he's performing Umrah with his own Sahaba or the Allahu Anhu. And they went to Medina, they went to Makkah, and they were prevented

00:00:40 --> 00:01:22

from performing Umrah. And they had this long agreement with us with the Quraysh. Now between the Battle of trenches and this expedition of Arabia, there were some other minor events that took place and today inshallah I want to share with you one minor event that took place that really highlights what the community was in the masjid of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So this is a an expedition where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent a group of 30 Sahaba to the Allah one room approximately, to a place and whenever the Pavarotti Sun was sent a group of Sahaba without his own presence, it was not called a buzzword, it was called a city. Yeah. So this is a Cydia, and the

00:01:22 --> 00:02:03

province has some sent these people and while they were coming back, they were they were victorious. They came back, they actually came by a small convoy. And they had sort of, you know, they had some suspicious feelings about this convoy. So they said that instead of letting this convoy go, let's grab these people, and let's bring them to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now, what the Sahaba did not know was that there was one person in that convoy in that group, who had a very high status within a very prestigious tribe, but they did not know they brought his group. When Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he welcomed the group back. And he noticed that all these

00:02:03 --> 00:02:47

people they brought back he asked the Sahaba, that Do you know who you brought back? And the Sahaba said, No, we don't know who we brought back. And they said that this man, this man who we was pointing to his name was foo mama, even though third, he said that this person that you brought back, he's not only achieved in a small tribe, but he's the chieftain of the tribe of Banu Hanifa. And this tribe, but no Hanifa is as large and as prestigious as the Qureshi tribe. And they have resources and they have power. And so Rasulullah sallallahu, some was shocked to begin with, they brought him he has no idea the Sahaba have no idea. So then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:02:48 --> 00:03:27

he asked his hoBRO, the Allahu Anhu to tie his hands, and to let him stay inside the Masjid. Now, of course, the way you know the way police officers they try and they handcuff you not like that in that way. But in a way that you know, he will not be able to attack anyone or he will be in one place. And by the way, for my ma also was a person who was not sympathetic towards the Muslims. In the past, he has shown his immunity and hatred towards the Muslims. In fact, there were times when he had publicly declared that if I got the chance, I will take the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So now you're talking about this is a man. Now think about this for a moment. Let's

00:03:27 --> 00:04:13

pause here for a moment. Let's think about this. Imagine, imagine the most hated man towards Muslims. He came to the door of a masjid and he wants to come inside the masjid. And he wants to talk to the Muslims and he want to be around the Muslims. Today I can tell you honestly, not long ago, there was an incident that happened very similar. There were a man who said publicly he said things against Muslims. He came to the door of a masjid. And he came inside a masjid. And the leader gave him the leader of that community gave him some time at that masjid. And you know what people said in the community, you don't want people sit on social media. People have said that How dare did

00:04:13 --> 00:04:50

the Imam of that Masjid. He gave this man a spot inside the Masjid. How dare did they allow this man to come inside the Masjid? We're talking about for Mama, a man who had also declared that he will take the life of rasa Salem. He came inside the machine. The problem did not kick him out the problem not so that you get out of here. No. This is what we learned from the seat of the province send them this is why we study the CEDAW of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So the next morning, Russell also some he comes to the mama and says to mama, what do you have to say for yourself? And he says listen to jasola in a fortnight you have to understand he does not believe in

00:04:50 --> 00:04:59

Allah. He says Mohammed O Muhammad. So he says Muhammad, look, if you kill me, then you have to understand that you have a civil war on your hands.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:42

My tribe is not going to leave your your you and your Sahaba alone, they will come after you. And if you showed me mercy, then my tribe will remember that and anytime you need a favor, we owe you a favor. And if you want money, we will give you any amount that you and the Sahaba they need. The Prophet SAW Selim. Now see here, you understand one thing, he never asked for mercy. He never asked for mercy. You know why? Because he's the leader of his tribe. A leader cannot show weakness. So the leader he's showing, I'll give you whatever you want, but he's not asking begging for mercy. Now, whatever Salah sauce I'm do he never asked for anything he wanted? He says to Mama, how about you

00:05:42 --> 00:06:22

convert to Islam? How about you accept Islam? And for Mama, he said, quiet. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he told the Sahaba that just bring him some food. He told his household he told the women folk in his family that prepare some food for him and bring it to him. But all day long, he was sitting inside the masjid and he would do nothing but observe the Muslim community. He would observe the community of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and so, three days went like this. The second day again Rasul Allah some he came to him Oh, so mama, what do you have to say your for yourself? The third day he says, Oh mama, what do you have to say for yourself and the same thing,

00:06:22 --> 00:07:07

and after the third day Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told his Sahaba that go untie him release him. Let him go through mama. He went not far away. In fact, if you have been to current day Medina current day Medina were gentle Bucky is on the side of gentle back here. So if you're facing the main gates where everyone goes into gentle bucket, on the on the left side, somewhere in that area, they say that he reached that point. And he went there to a small behind a small place. He took a shower. He came back to the Sula sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and he says a shadow Allah illallah wa shadow Ana Muhammad Rasool Allah, And subhanAllah what he said after that was so

00:07:07 --> 00:08:01

beautiful. He says, oh, Muhammad, before before today, there was no face that was more despised to me than your face. But today, your face is the most beloved face to me in the entire world. He says your he says your city. He says your religion. Religion of Islam was the most despised religion to me before today. Today, your religion is the most pleasing thing to me today. And then he says your city of Medina was the most despised to me before today. After today, it is the most beloved city today after after today is the most beloved city in my heart. Subhanallah how, just for a few days sitting in the company of Rasulullah Salah sitting in the house of Allah witnessing the Muslim

00:08:01 --> 00:08:42

community has such an impact on him that he was able to convert to Islam. And not only that, but then he asked jasola Can I go to Makkah and do you suggest that I perform Umrah and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says Osama if you want to go and you want to perform Umrah that's your choice. He went to Makkah he went to the Haram and when he was about to come perform Umrah, the Quraysh there, they began to observe that there was some you know, he was doing things a little differently. And they asked him have you converted to Islam? And he says yes, I have converted to Islam. Some of the Qureshi leaders, they pulled their source either sheets, and they began to

00:08:42 --> 00:09:23

they'll begin to, you know, scare him a little. And there were some other people, there wasn't some of the more wise ones they took, they took a step back. And they warned some of those players who are threatening this man that think about this, this man he is achieved in Abu Hanifa your grains they come from the north, and if this man is upset, he's going to stop your supply chain of all the grains are coming into Makkah. And at that time. So Mama said that now because you have threatened me, I will do exactly that. And he went when he went back home, he stopped the supply chain of grains that were coming into MACOM abou Sofia and then he sent a letter to Rasulullah sallallahu

00:09:23 --> 00:10:00

alayhi wa sallam saying yes to Allah, or he said Muhammad, he said, Please tell this man, tell this man to stop this. And we need our supply of grains on a weekly and monthly basis. And so Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he wrote a letter to mama telling him that stopped this, stop the sanction and let them get their grains as usual. And so he then followed what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam he did. Now what do we learn from this? The very first thing of course that we learn is that how do we need to behave and how do we conduct ourselves as a community when we talk about a Muslim country

00:10:00 --> 00:10:39

At the community, the religious sector of the Muslim community that is coming to the masjid on a day to day basis, brothers and sisters, I tell you honestly, you know so many people who are not so much religious, their religiosity does not exist so much in their life. If you ask them a lot of times, what is one thing that what is one thing that puts you off about religion? Why do you not want to come close to religion? You know, what is one thing they will say over and over again? That people who are religious people who are coming to the masjid Have you seen their life? Have you seen their mom and dad, have you seen how they how things happen in their family, as, as ones who come to the

00:10:39 --> 00:11:23

masjid, as those who are part of the religious sector of the community, those who claim that we are part of the religious, who are more, more, you know, we are more focused on our religiosity. When we at the same time, when we cheat when we steal, when we deceive others, when we do things that are wrong, when our love is not like two o'clock of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forget about the non Muslim community. This has an effect on the Muslim community too. So we have to conduct ourselves in such a way that when people come to the masjid, they get a true taste of what true Islam is. But when they come to the masjid, and they see the same people that outside the masjid,

00:11:23 --> 00:12:02

they are cheating, and they are lying. And they're deceiving. And the clock is so terrible that how would the even the non religious sector how would they even come into the how would they come to the masjid? And how would they adopt religiosity in their life? That's the first major lesson that we learned. Another major lesson that we learned is that do not hold a grudge in your heart. Now you have to understand just just few months ago, was the battle trenches, in the battle trenches, the hood, the province of some he had a pact with the Yahoo that you will support us if we are invaded if we are attacked. On the other hand, they betrayed that trust of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa

00:12:02 --> 00:12:44

sallam, and then not only that, but just few months after all this has happened. That person could have said that now this is my moment to get revenge from the police. But what did he do? He never held that grudge in his heart. He told us to mama, that Mama just let it go. Just remove that sanction. And so think about this, that how many times we hold a grudge in our heart, not just for months, for years and for years, that what we learned from Rasulullah saw some is just letting it go have have a merciful heart. That's a sign of a religious man that he and she they let go of other people's weaknesses, and they do not hold their crimes against them. And they're not looking out for

00:12:44 --> 00:13:22

a moment of revenge. We also learned from the story is that how he was allowed, as I said earlier for a non Muslim to come inside the Masjid. In fact, we also find that a long time ago when the Christians have nudged Iran, they will come to the house of when they will come to the masjid of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In some cases, they would allow they were allowed. These are the Christians of Nigeria and these are people who say that easily some is a son of God. These are people who permission it openly. Yet there were cases when Rasul Allah son would allow them to perform their own Ariba in the house of Allah subhanho wa taala. So next time we this is a lesson

00:13:22 --> 00:14:01

for all of us. When there are interfaith events, when non Muslims are coming inside the masjid, it is absolutely fine according according to the according to the laws and the rules of Sharia. And of course, there's many other lessons that we can learn. But this is just a short a short story that really highlights what the Muslim community is all about. So I ask Allah subhana wa Tala that May He give us the trophy, to become like the community of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, of course, we may not become like the Sahaba we may not have that same spirit, that same drive that same enthusiasm as a Sahaba. But when we try to emulate and we try to become like someone, at least

00:14:01 --> 00:14:23

will become someone close to them. I ask Allah subhana wa Tala to protect our communities. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make the religious sector even more religious, and we ask those who are not coming to the budget so much May Allah subhanaw taala turn their hearts, change their hearts and bring them close to the budget. I mean, well, but I mean, does that Kamala Hey assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh in
