to Al Amin, whatever 111 a lot I mean when I'm able to in my checking Allah masala said I'm about a karate cola so they can Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, right early he also can behave or sell them to semen cathedra I want to welcome you all back and hamdulillah to the first we had a little bit of a break and I want to encourage you all in sha Allah time. If you missed the last few weeks, one of the things that I was trying to do was to look at the Hijra through the lens of some of the most crucial figures that were involved in the history of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And then of course last week at Hamdulillah, we released the documentary on the murders of Hamas,
may Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with them all. Many of the companions of the prophets lie Selim, as well as the tambourine as well as the next generation. And inshallah Tana. Over the next few weeks, we're going to go over some of the most tragic incidents surrounding the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and some of those heroes that rose to the occasion. And Subhan Allah, there are a few individuals in the Ceylon, who are almost frozen in time when it comes to one particular incident in the biography of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam. And they're known really, for one thing and one thing alone. And that is the case of the person that we're going to be talking
about today. So tonight, we'll focus on the battle of a hood. And then in sha Allah to Allah over the next two weeks, we'll look at some of the things that happen immediately after a hood, where the tragedy of the Battle of our head was actually compounded. But in the midst of that great tragedy, you find the shining stars and these people that really stood up and sacrifice themselves in the Cause of Allah and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And so the person that we're talking about today is a man by the name of Abu Jana, although the Allahu taala. And, and there is absolutely nothing that's narrated about this man that doesn't involve battle.
So an absolute warrior of a human being a young man who stood up in defense of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam, and whose life provides an insight into many of the wisdoms of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about how he didn't break the spirits of a person when it came to their zeal, but instead he redirected it Are they his Salatu was Salam and you'll understand in sha Allah to Anna, as we go through the life of I will do Jana Rowley, Allah Tada. So first and foremost, like many others, he's famous for his nickname, but his actual name is not very well known to the Muslims. So his actual name is C Mac, even how Russia see Mac Ibn how Russia and I searched
and I searched and I searched and I spent a lot of time trying to find out why he's nicknamed Abu Jana and I could find absolutely nothing so his actual name is seamark Nicaragua. And as for his nickname, I will do Jana everything as to why he might be named that is purely a guess that some of the contemporary writers tried to take their best shot up, but we know him as he is all the a long time and I will do Jana Sima, give me how Russia or the Allahu Taala and home Seema comunicado Shah was from the tribe of Banu Sana EDA there's gonna be a lot of history to sort of introduce this lesson inshallah. Ben who certainly the if you go to Medina now one of the most prominent preserved
sites right outside the message of the Prophet sly Salam is the sativa Venosa. The tent the garden of Venosa. And this is where Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu Anhu famously took his pledge took his baya to become the Khalifa of the Muslims. And so it's a preserved site, right outside the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And so obviously, the sativa that area belong to that belong to Ben husana ADA. So he's from this tribe, then Husar Ada, which was a sub tribe of Al huzzah rush. So you got the two main tribes O's, and coverage. And you have a sub tribe of huzzah Raj Venosa EDA, and abou to channel the Allahu taala. And who comes from this tribe. Now, this is
one of the more powerful tribes of Medina, which means that they have a sense of leadership before and after Islam, which gives them a certain level of authority. And the most famous member of this tribe was none other than Saturday binaural data or the Allahu Tada and one of the sites so sad the Minerva is a cousin of Ubuntu, Jana will the Allahu taala. And, and we know if you go back and you look at the role that's already been played, he was a candidate for being a Khalifa right that the Assad would have gathered behind. But of course, everyone gathered upon the Khalifa from the MaHA Geneen being Abu Bakr, Siddiq or the loud Salah and so when Islam comes to Medina, and sorry the
Minerva embraces Islam, I will do John about the Allahu Taala and who was a young man from that tribe, and he was someone who used to practice all of the arts of war. So he used to practice with
A spear he used to practice with his sword he used to practice horseback riding. He used to practice CamelBak riding. He used to do all sorts of things to warm himself up for the moment that he would have to shine in. And it's Pamela growing up, you've got to understand that these young men were thinking that they would participate in some of the tribal wars in which people would fight each other over silly reasons. And yesterday about the time over which their fathers killed each other. So he was being groomed to be a chief warrior and some of those inner tribal battles that will take place at the time. But instead, Allah subhanaw taala had different plans for him. So I want you to
kind of get the image in your mind. And it's always interesting to me that you have a parallel from Mecca and Medina sometimes like you have Mossad been
here he is very similar to zubaid have been a while middle, the low on one Mecca, just a man who's been groomed for war and battle his entire life, a youth who spent his entire life practicing for the moment that he would have in the battlefield. So when Islam comes to Medina, we don't have the exact moment that this young man embraces Islam. But we do know that he was amongst the three that went around the city of Medina and that basically broke the idols that disposed of the idols of Medina was started to Minerva, Abu Jana, and wonder even AM. So these were the three young men that basically once the people embraced Islam went around and they disposed of the idols that used to be
worshipped before Islam would come to them. So the prophesy son comes to Medina, and he needs this young man. And everything about this young man is confidence and zeal, and being ready for the moment of war. And the prophets like some, of course, paired people off from the Mahajan and the unsought and this was called the MaHA where he took them hydrogen he put them with their counterparts from the unsought so the Mexicans would be with the people of Medina. And you find that it's often that the Prophet slice and I'm paired people off in accordance with their backgrounds, not their tribal backgrounds, but what their characters were like. And so he paired him sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam with a man by the name of Aruba. In verse one. Rootsweb mythos one or the Allahu Taala and who we have an episode about, is as early as the seventh person to embrace Islam. So one of the first Muslims in Mecca, someone who made hijra to Abyssinia and to Medina, he made both of the hedgerows, someone who fought every battle alongside the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his sister embraced Islam early was was married to Earth mammal, the Allahu Anhu. And another sister of his best salon was the wife of Abu Hodeidah, or the Allahu Tada I know, so let's dive in because one is a warrior who embraced Islam early on with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and who
used to lead armies in battalions, Andromeda and barbital, the Allahu Anhu and was one of those who was key in defeating the Persian Empire at the time. So it's about all the alongside and who was actually the one who conquered what is now a busload in Iraq. So you can imagine that household, right, you got two young men, that both basically do nothing, but practice for battle and practice for war. And they're waiting for the moment to be summoned by the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, I will Digenova the Allahu taala. And he is one of those who gets to participate in every battle with the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So he's one of the veterans of
And there is an important context here with the Battle of Beda. That those who fought in the Battle of bedeutet, and who were able to kill some of the seniors of the Metcons were particularly marked for death. Right now, obviously, it was all about revenge on the Muslims, because the Americans thought that they would easily squash the Muslims in the Battle of budget, right? They came out there, basically, with the mentality of a party, we're going to kill them once and for all, wipe them off the face of the earth and Allah subhanaw taala gave them victory. And so you had hitless that basically remained in Mecca for those who took out some of the prominent leaders of oration in
the Battle of brother so he's one of those people. So I will do janitor the Allah and we don't have an image of him, particularly in terms of what he did in Bedford. But we know that he took out two of the leaders of Mecca so one of those whom he killed was a man by the name of xmR, if not us word, and then we'll call him. Zuma in us what happened in Muttalib. And Zuma was one of those who was a staunch opponent of the Prophet slice Allah. And he's also someone who, whose son had it had become Muslim. And he basically tortured his son out of Islam. So Zuma, tortured his son al Haritha.
Out of Islam. And this is the context of the verse in Surah Nisa, verse 97, in which Allah subhanaw taala mentions in Alladhina to a fellow Mala, Mala he cattle while me and footsy him Caru female Kontum CalU Hakuna Matata Athena Phil Carlu LM Chacoan. arugula. He was here for 200 Euro fee. So this verse where last time I was talking about people who died, and then the angels asked them about their state, and they say that we were weak and oppressed. And Allah subhanaw taala responds and says, wasn't the earth of Allah vast meaning Couldn't you have made hijra? So this is a verse of bleen. Towards and how to have no Zima because he renounced his Islam and he did not make hijra,
because the circumstances became difficult. Some will do generally allow China and who was responsible for, for overcoming him in the Battle of bed.
And he was responsible for overcoming a man by the name of Assam, Ibn Abi Earth. So all of this is just to give you an introduction to it, right, I will do Jana was probably about 20 years old. When the battle of word comes. He's truly a young man. And he is someone who everyone knows for one purpose he doesn't get involved in anything else. And this is where we find the chapter in Sahih Muslim, that men phala le ABI do Jana seamark Neha Raja Radi Allahu Taala and the virtues of obudu Jana seamark Mahadasha are the Allah one and we learn about our hero today seamark I will do Jana all the Allah Tada and who
narrates and this is in fact narrated from anosognosia article The Allahu Anhu that as the battle takes place, now I want you to kind of put yourself back in the hood and next time you go to the hood, may Allah write you down or Umrah or a hedge, except that one wants you to kind of visualize this, the profit signs Salam, in the beginning of every battle, bestows a special honor on somebody. And you can find this in every single battle Subhanallah that one person is marked with some sort of special honor in the beginning of the battle, and sometimes more than one, but there is always that one person, right. So in the Battle of a vendor, it was available the Allah who wore his Yellow
Turban and all of the angels came down with the look of is available the low tide in high bar, it will save nearly all the Allahu Taala and with the profit slice and I'm said that I'm going to give it tomorrow to someone who Allah and His Messenger love and who loves Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and it was saving it while the Allahu Anhu. So the prophets like some always has this honor that He bestows upon a person before the battle, and there's certainly a divine wisdom to this. So the prophets lie Selim.
Before the battle starts, he holds out his own sword sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and the Prophet signs and I'm said, maniac who domini Hara who who's going to take the sword from me?
Now here's the thing. Obviously, this is more honorable than holding a banner. This is more honorable than holding any type of cloth. You're holding the sword of the messenger SallAllahu Sallam who is going to hold my sword in this battle. Here's the thing about the prophets like Sunday, the prophet sighs I'm used to fighting the battle himself.
Yes, the Messenger of Allah sly son would be in the front lines. But the prophets lie some would not kill.
He would fight he would knock down. He would participate. But the prophets lie some was a mercy. He wouldn't kill it. His thought was some so he would not deliver a fatal blow to anyone it is Salatu was Salam. But here in the beginning of this battle, Prophets lie some puts out his hand and says, who's going to take this sword? So obviously, I will Becca? Ali, Taha, Zubayr, right, the familiar ones. Everyone comes out and says, No yada Sula. And I'll take it or messenger of Allah, I'll take it. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, so much so that no one else has ever had this virtue bestowed upon them. We don't know of any other companion, who's going to have this particular virtue
bestowed upon them.
And so for vessel to idea home Kulu in Sandton Minho, yeah, cool Anna, Anna, everyone put their hand forth and said yes, Allah, I'll take it. I'll take it. And then the Prophet sighs Sam says, Thurman Yeah, who the who be happy. But who will take it with it's right. Now the Companions understood that the prophets lie, someone was about to attach a condition. So they all kind of hesitated at that point.
So they put their hands down.
And they wondered what the prophets lysozyme meant when he says, who's going to take it with its right meaning with with all of its responsibilities with everything that comes with it isn't just something you get to wave around, and the Battle of who's going to take it with it's right. And what is the heck of it? The prophets lie some said afterwards, that you don't kill any
believer with it, and that you don't flee from the enemy, no matter what.
prophesy, some is foreshadowing how this battle is going to go down and he saw slice on some of the visions that would take place that people would be chased and people would be put in very difficult circumstances. And this was a battle in which many people would end up fleeing. So the heart of the sort of the prophets lie some is that the one who's carrying the sword of the prophets lie some will not turn against his own, nor will he flee from the opponent at any point in the battle. So I will do Jana or the low tide and hope.
He put out his hand and he says, an AR rasool Allah who will be happy, I will take it O Messenger of Allah, with its full rights and with its full responsibility. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he handed it to Abu Jandal the Allahu taala. And when he said, take it with its right, take it with its right now Subhan Allah, you can imagine the responsibility, the honor, the virtue, the way that this young man has now instantly been boosted and elevated in the eyes of the companions. Now, there was one person who says that I put out my hand as well and the prophets lie some did not give me that sort. And it was available the allotted time as a beta of an r1 model, the alo teller,
I know, he says describing that moment, Karla wotja to Fein FC anus Ultra Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam a safe some an irony he wa whoever do Jana, what call to an app no Sofia, the he said that I was I was hurt on the inside. I kind of felt something on the inside. I mean, when the prophets lie some gave the story to Abuja, Jana instead of me. And I said to myself, I am the son of Sofia, be honest of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam woman Quraysh and I am from Quraysh. And he says what God come to a day he first of all to Yahoo cobbler who said that I actually asked him for the sword before I will do Jana did. I put up my hand before I will do Jana and of course this
is characteristic of is available the amount of time
that Allah has honored him in the past, and will honor him after this because this debate is always right there. Right. The prophets lie some says something. The boogey man comes out whoever it is as available the Allahu Anhu jump. So he's saying I'm his cousin. I'm always there. And I was thinking to myself, why did the prophets lie some turn away from me and give it to Ubuntu Jana? So he said Walla and Rhonda and I asna. So he said, I'm going to watch this man in battle. Like I can't believe that the prophets like some ended up giving it to someone other than me. And subhanAllah there's a Hickmott. To this. There's a wisdom to this, that Ubuntu Jana was from the unsavoury he's from the
young man of Medina. And the prophets like some knows what he's doing. It's not just honoring an individual, it's also distributing the virtue amongst the people. sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If he continues to only honor the misogyny and the people of Mecca, the Forerunners from Mecca, then it's going to send a particular type of message to the unsought and the Prophet size and does not want that. So that's certainly part of the hikma and it's not a knock on his obaidul The Allahu Taala and home but rather it's something that Allah intended for Abu Jana Radi Allahu Taala and who as well and is aware of the ALLAH and he continues in some of the narrations and he basically starts to talk
about what he was capable of and more and is available the Allah I know had the unique ability of what he used to be able to sit on a horse and he used to be able to use both of his hands with swords and control a horse and battle with his legs alone that was the strength of his available the a lot of time. So it's a beta is like I'm gonna watch this man and see how he carries himself in battle. Because he must be special in order for the prophets lie some to prefer him to me and I felt something inside of me like Why him instead of me.
And then he continues and this is where the famous
Holika the famous move up with the agenda comes from. He said that Ubuntu Jana pulled out a red bandana.
Okay. And he tied this red bandana on his head. And then all of the unsolved, got excited and they said shut the Abu Dhabi Jana Resava tell Moti Allah ROTC Abu Jana just put on the bandana of death on his head like once he pulled that bandana out. We knew that it was it so as Aveda is watching this and somehow that's really interesting because the Sahaba had their marks right as a bait had a Yellow Turban of Dijon and pulls out his red bandana and this basically becomes how I will do Jana will prepare himself for every single battle he pulls out this red bandana he puts it on and basically all of the unsalted know that it's on now we know exactly what's about to happen that he's
going into a different mode will be a low tide I know and there's something that you know that immediately resonates with us is available the Alana know because there's a weight had his own mark right so wait a minute, he's got his mark as well. Just like I've got my mark. And then I will do Jana will the Allahu Anhu does something has really interesting. He starts to struck in front of the Sahaba he starts to
Walk in front of the in front of the sahaba. Then he goes and he walks right up to the machine right up to the opponents in the battlefield, and he starts to walk in front of them strutting all the Allahu Anhu and twisting the sword around, and basically taunting the other side.
Now the prophets like sound teaches humility. And this is a very different type of attitude that they're seeing. Imagine this young man going puts on a red bandana and he goes in the streets in front of the opponent. And look at what the prophets lysozyme says, and this is why I said, we take a lot of rulings and a lot of the wisdom of the prophets lie some from this, the prophets lie some says in the heavy heat mushiya turn you believe Allah azza wa jal enough you handle notice that this is a type of walking that Allah hates, except in this type of situation.
Allah hates when people walk arrogantly. Allah hates when people boast and when people talk, but he said there's a time and a place for everything. And indeed, Subhan Allah, this shows you that the prophets like Selim, he could have condemned him he could have admonished him he could have called them out and said, This isn't how we act with the prophets like some understands that there's a psychology there's a mindset in battle as well. And Abu Jamal Radi Allahu taala. And who is doing this to basically show the enemy no fear even though they were greatly outnumbered by them. In those moments, some of the scholars mentioned even the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, when
he was fighting in her name and the prophesy son was so brave and courageous, and he said an interview with Kevin and Andy McCollum. I am the profit without any doubts I am the son of I'm the Motorola and the profit sighs I'm did not like in normal situations that people mentioned the names of their fathers. Right. But the prophets lie some understood the mindset, the psychology of battle that once you're in the battlefield, there's a different type of mindset. And he wanted to empower that young man out of his slot to a center so that he could feel that sense of power and that he could raise the morale of the Muslim. So basically, you have this young man and this is new to the
Mahajan, Dean puts on his red headband starts and he goes, and he starts striding in front of the Meccans. Right, waving his sword around, and all of the young unsought are cheering him on.
Right, so he's putting on a show all the Allahu Anhu for all of the young Assad, and they're all getting excited about the battle, as it's about to start. Now we'll do John over the Allahu Anhu also has another thing that he doesn't battle which is he recites poetry. So he recites poetry about the battle. So as the waiter says, He then went on to say, and Allah the I had any Hello Ed, we're not going over stuff hayleigh Day and Healy and a coma, Dara fell to Uli ugly will be safe in LA he was suing, he said, I am the one whose whose beloved friend had taken an oath with while we stood near the date poems, I pledge that I will not be in the back rows of the Army, but that I will fight
the enemy with the sword of Allah and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he starts chanting this out, he's getting ready for the battle. And then is available the Allah Tada and who says the battle starts. So obviously, with the Battle of hurt, you got the beginning the first half, and you have the second half, right? The first half, which is that the Muslims once again, though they were greatly outnumbered by an army that wanted to massacre them, and that had absolutely no ethics, we're able to overcome them by the help of Allah, and they're there and they're sticking to the plan. The prophets lie some tells the archers as we all know, to stay on the mountain of
archers, and to not come down until he gives them permission it his salatu salam, that gave them their strategic advantage. They win the battle initially. And then we have the next part.
Which is when those Muslims disobey the Prophet slice, and I'm in in Highland renewal lead of the low tide and who takes the army around, and he attacks them. So there's really one or two, there's the first episode of hurt. And there's the second episode ahead, says obaidul, the Allahu Anhu was like I wanted to see this young man. So he said up to Jana walks forward is that this young man puts on his armor, and he had broad shoulders and as the veil was known for these huge arms, right, so he had his broad shoulders, and he said, Fajr Hola. Hola, yo, Illa patella, who is I just watched him and he was finishing his opponents one by one everyone that came in front of us with the Journal of
the allowed time and he went through them quickly. And he said that as he was going through and just mowing his way into the army and is available the law. I know he's fighting but he's also watching a vagina. He says that there was a man from the other side who was cutting down everybody along the way. So he's basically watching one person from the other side mowing through the ranks. And he's watching with John all the alone who mowing through the ranks. So
He says vagina kulula him in Houma yard no man's law heavy and he said, I noticed that they were getting closer to each other. Think about the visual of this. I will do John has cutting through the ranks and the other man is cutting through the ranks. Now as the weight of the Allahu Anhu is being honest, as a way it is a man who's admiring his skill right now. And he's seen what I would do John has really made up I mean, the guy who got the sort of the profit slice I'm instead of him. So he said that they're out Allah and judgment Are They Now who am I so I made your eye to Allah that the two of them would end up fighting each other.
That was waiting for the moment that they meet. Right, I will do Jana on one side cutting through the other guy on the other side cutting through. Karla fell, Tatia said so they met one another. He says photographer Norbertine for double machico abba do, Jana he said. So basically it was two hits. He said that the other the opponent struck at Abu Dhabi Jana. He said Abu Jana intercepted his blow he basically blocked it. And he said he hit him one time and he killed him. So this is a bit as watching him. He's like, Who is this guy?
Right. So he took him out with one blow.
And he said that he kept on going forward.
Now cabin nomadic are the Allahu Anhu he has his own narration of this cabin nomadic or the Allah and who says that I was one of those people who went out with the Muslims on the date of a hood. And he said and I got injured I was on the ground. And I noticed a person from the Mushrikeen a person from the disbelievers who was going forward. While jolla food is still SQL camera still socket, just our nerves are gonna come forth and be slaughtered the way that animals are slaughtered. Meaning what he's just
cutting people down, right? slaughtering people. I mean, he was so vicious. And he said, so I was watching this. And he says what either Roger remember Muslimeen young toddler who he said I noticed one of the Muslims was waiting for him was basically getting ready to face him. So he said, If I'm on day two, how to quantum and what are he so he basically says that I was on the ground and I basically started to move until I could catch a sight of the muscle and then walking up to this guy who's who's literally talking about slaughtering people like they're in a factory like they're in a in an animal factory. So he said, so I got to a point where I could see both of them with my bare
So he said, and I noticed that you that cafiero of Londo Houma wrote the 10, what he said, and I noticed that the opponents was bigger, and he looked more prepared. He had better armor on him, and he was a bigger man. So I didn't think it was going to go well. So he said, so I kept on watching them until they finally met with one another. And he said that the bigger man attacked him. He said he dodged his blow. And he said he basically sliced him into two.
Not exactly that way. But he said he basically was able to get right out them and deliver a fatal blow to him. So he said, I'm watching I'm like, Who is this young man? And by the way, battle is not pretty. So I mean, it's a pretty vivid description, right? But he says, Who is this young man that just took this humongous man out? And then look at I mean, it's almost like out of a movie, how he's describing the situation. Basically, I will do Jana knows the Kaboo Malik is watching him for car from Akasha and YG. He, he said that he then took off his his, his mask, and he said kafer talaia carob and Apple two Jana, what do you think? I will do Jana?
Like it looks back to Kevin says, What did you think I was gonna do? He thought he had a chance against me, put back his his his mask and then kept on fighting.
So the man had a lot of courage. And he had a lot of confidence. And the prophets lie. Selim admired that about him. And he basically is earning his reputation throughout this entire battle, but then Subhan Allah, here's something profound that takes place because remember, the Muslims are people with ethics. He basically got through the entire ranks of the machine, so as to battle the law and who says Subhan Allah was like the blink of an eye. And he started off in the beginning, and he just cut his way all the way through the army until he got to the very back. And he said, he got there so quickly, that there were some women there that were chanting.
And they were basically chanting poetry that national manantial todich were the daughters of the star of Tata, and they're basically saying,
they're riling up their own army saying that if you advance forward then you'll find us ready for you and making life comfortable for you. But if you abandon your place in the battlefield and act like cowards, then there will be no more love between us right? There are all sorts of poetry from jahleel poetry from from war that the women were chanting to rile up
The monsters are keen to rile up Quraysh. So as to battle the law and who says that I watched the Buddha, John and he went through so rapidly. I mean, he just cut through all the way to the back of the army. And then he got to the back and there was someone right under him. And that person was well, they shrieked
and then revealed their face. And it was Hyndman Terrazza. Hint, the wife of Abu Sufyan.
Now what is Hinze going to do at the end of this battle? Hindi is the one who will have the liver of Hemsedal the Allah and hope taken out of his body will try it out and spit it right. I mean, she has really bad intentions for this battle. She's out there to avenge her father. She is the main person that's riling up the mustard routine. And Ubuntu Jana has has her right under the sword and she's actively participating. I somehow love that the image here by the way of hint, is that hint is actually going behind. She's getting into the battlefield and she's riling up the men she's not staying in one place. She's trying to get them forward and she has one thing and one thing in mind
which is I want the blood of Hemsedal the a lot of time because Hamza was the one who killed her father embedded, I want the blood of Hemsedal the allot of time. So hint was ferociously riling up the other side and basically as availale the Allahu Anhu says so right when he had his sword above her and he realized that it was a woman he pulled the sword back.
And Zubaydah said I said to myself Allahu wa rasuluh Allah, Allah and His Messenger know best meaning like in that situation and remember the prophets like some is reforming the ethics here not killing innocent people not killing a woman not cutting down trees not killing the animals only killing the the immediate enemy combatants finding a way out to ransom the prisoners. All these things are very new to them. Right? So this debate is like but she's She's an active participant. So I didn't know Allah was Sue Ireland if she really was worthy of death in that moment, because she was really participating in the battle. Right and sometimes to cut off the morale is a means of
defeating the opponent.
But Abu Jana said I let her go. Says later said, I went up to Abu Jana now this is part one of the battle when the Muslims basically riled them, beat them, and they appear to be retreating.
And as were said, I loved everything I saw from you. Everything that you did, basically, I understand now why the prophets lie, some gave you the sword instead of me.
He said, but there was one thing that I was very curious about, which is when you had hint under you, like she's active, you chose to hold your sword back. So he's not saying terrible to Gianna, you should have killed her. He's just saying that was very curious, right? Because most people in that situation you gotta imagine as well like when you're in that mode, right? I mean, you're fighting and waving your sword right and left. You're in that mode, like, how did you hold it back? And listen to what he says. He says, I realized that she was a woman for a crumb to save for Rasulullah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and other Robbie hemraj.
He said, The Sword of the Messenger of Allah is too noble to strike a woman.
I realized that the sword of the Messenger of Allah is too noble to strike a woman I wasn't going to taint that Amana that trust that the Prophet slice on gave me by striking a woman when the prophets lie some explicitly said to not kill the women to not kill the innocent and not kill anyone who's not fighting to not cut down the trees and so on so forth. It's panela. So it shows you the ethics as well, that the prophets lie Selim had taught these people. So this is part one of oath. And you can see this young man that basically shined and at this point had the battle ended. He is one of the great heroes of that battle already, right because of all of the antics because of the way that
he put on a show, basically, while he went forth, and he demoralize the other side, right, this other side, that's three times the size of your army. I will do down and basically demoralize them by cutting all the way through them. But then what happens? Khalid marine takes the army around the mountain, and he ambushes the Muslims from behind them. And of course, because they relinquished that position of the archers, their backs were now to this army and they didn't have enough time to situate themselves once again to basically defend themselves. And this is where you start to have the profiles of courage those people that died trying to protect the prophets like Selim, Musab the
ventromedial the Allahu Tata and who who tried to lead the army away from the Prophet slice and I'm by creating commotion away from him and lost his life. The Maha jurien nusseibeh Ahmad or the alo Anna and her entire family trying to defend the prophets I said of them, all of these people that we talk about and I will do John is sort of the last major figure that we haven't spoken about in this regard. And he represents a group of the unsolved a group of young men from the unsolved
that decided to surround the prophets like some instead of flee in those moments, now Subhanallah the imagery of hurt, is tall have not obeyed the law, catching arrows. Paul huddle, the Allahu Anhu was literally trying to intercept any blow that he possibly could from the Prophet, slice alum. And the goal was to kill the Prophet slice. Right? So they're raining down on the messenger Salallahu Salam in any way. And with the Jana was with a man by the name of he is either the second or the Allahu Taala and who is even a second was one of the unsolved. He's the father of a Scotland jersey, the famous orator of the of the women, spokesperson of the women in Medina. And he has even a second
tries to grab the profit slice and I'm and he was slain as he was trying to protect the messenger. I think his thoughts was salam.
I will do John over the Allahu Taala and he pulls off something so beautiful, and it's a miracle that he actually survives this moment.
I will vacuously call the Law on who
he says that I saw Abu Jandal the Allahu Taala animal on the day of effort.
And he said he grabbed the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam. And the arrow started to come on his back until he looked like a hedgehog or the Allahu Tata animal. So he basically defended the profits by some with his entire being in that moment
from the dinner
so while Abu Dhabi Jana is protecting the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the arrows basically start to litter his back while the Allahu Taala I'm home.
There was a man by the name of Abdullah from AIDS, who is coming after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
and he was shouting out and admits to hate the Lunia Allah Muhammad I am the son of as ahead show me Muhammad he said by Allah either I will kill him or I will die.
One of us is going to die today And subhanAllah so I don't have the law on who says that Ubuntu Jana literally I mean, imagine the image his back was littered with arrows so he looks like a hedgehog you literally had to look over above the agenda to see if the profit slice on was still alive
That's how much of the body
of the profit slice on that he was trying to cover in that moment while the allot of time I know. But miraculously, he's not going to die in this moment. So how long you recount the story and how do you think about the genre dies in this moment he does.
And as of the loving homemade comes towards the prophets lie Selim he basically is poking at the prophets lie Selim. Around Ubuntu Jana to try to get to him.
And Ubuntu general the Allahu Taala I know he takes his sword even as his back is covering the prophets lie Selim. And he strikes the leg of the horse and have been homemade falls off and I will do Jana was able to kill him even with his back littered with the arrows.
And this is where the profit slice and a major ad for Abu Dhabi Jana, Cole, Allahu Allah and Ebihara and even the Harsha tema, Anna and Murali, oh Allah be pleased with the son of Harsha the way that I am pleased with him. Subhanallah you find that the prophets lie some prayed for those that were with him and those that were against him on that day. As for those that were with him, he made your app for it. No se but my model and also habit to be with him and Jana, as they requested. As for those that were against him the profit slice I'm said along the foot of the home even the home lawyer on the moon Oh ALLAH forgive my people. They don't know any better. And here in the case of Abuja,
anodal, the Allahu Taala and the Prophet sighs some said Allah Allah be pleased with him as I am pleased with him. I mean, subhanAllah what more can you want from a man and truly there were people that were walking martyrs after that didn't die.
But it was as if they died, and a Buddha Jana while the Allahu Taala and who is one of those people?
And after the battle,
even above the law of town and Houma he narrates that the Prophet SAW Salem, when he came back from the battle of codes he gave the sword because remember, although the Jana had his sword this whole time, he gave his sort to faulty model the alarm and faulty Malzahar or the alarm and he was washing off the blood from that sword and the prophets lie some was praising Bucha Jana, that surely he did, right by that he did, right by the by the he did justice by the amount of by the trust that was given to him but all the Allahu Anhu defending the Prophet SAW Saddam in every single moment of that battle, all the Allahu Taala and who and so he goes down in history as one of the great heroes of
for that reason. And subhanAllah we find later on that every single battle he's on the front line in the battle favor of Buddha Jana. Well, the Allahu Taala and who was on the front line in the Battle of her name. He was one of those who actually changed the momentum of her name, because he took out the flagbearer
are on the other side in the Battle of quinine. And there were only a few that were standing with the profit slice. I'm in the Battle of her name at the end. So every single battle is not like a Bucha. Jana relented because of the experience of every single battle. He's there with the Prophets lie Selim. And he's fighting alongside the Messenger of Allah salAllahu Salam, and trying to protect him from every single harm that comes his way. And so in the Battle of her name, again, he goes forth. And he basically changes the momentum by taking out the flagbearer. The prophets lie some interests him and had to deal with them in the farewell hedge by appointing him as the governor of
Medina in his absence. So this was a sign as well with the Prophet slice, I'm loves him. And basically, this is his life. Right? Always being the hero that goes forth, when very few people were willing to go forth.
And subhanAllah we find that the last battle that he participates in, is the battle of Yamama, which was the battle against Macedo and Kedah Macedo, the False Prophet, who of course, had just demonstrated the worst of brutality right towards the Muslims and had done all sorts of things to the Muslims. This was a man that was crucifying people. Right. Have you been Zaid? Famously because they wouldn't call him a prophet of Allah. And it was in this battle, that you find that Al Bara Malik or the Allah Tala annual the brother of Anasazi, Allahu anhu, was the one who said launch me into had the cultural moat. It was the garden of death that was the garden immediately surrounding
will say Dominica. And basically the only way to change the momentum of Vietnam, Bharat said, go ahead and just launch me into there. So but I've nomadic went forth. I'm loving those eight whose brother was crucified by will say them and Cadabra and forth. What she had been huddled, as we mentioned, is the one who throws the spear the same one who threw the spirit hands out of the alumni who froze the spear at Mozilla, and Ubuntu Jana, or the Allahu Tada and who asked as well to basically jump into how the cotton melts. So he goes to the high point of the fortress, and he goes forth, and he says Annecy. Macabeu obudu JANA loves to be the villain. Well, I'm Hannah, Willa Jo
Darnell, Calvinists Nicanor la Hi, Rafi Omen within in Hana. He said that I am Samantha boo doo doo Jana. I am not one who holds any sense of humiliation or disgrace, nor am I a coward at heart are one who is weak. And he says there is no hey, if there is no goodness in the people who turn their backs on their faith. And as he jumps in with all the Allahu Taala and he breaks his leg. So that's this basically becomes the cause for some of his weakness in that battle of Yamama. That he jumped from such a high place into that garden. He was able to strike Musa al Kitab once and even washy while the Allahu Anhu he says for aboukir Aaron mo au now, patella, who I don't know which one of us
actually was the one who was responsible for the death of Macedo Monica, if it was the spear that I threw at him, or if it was the strike of a blue Jana, or the Allahu taala. And, and at that point, an arrow hit his chest, and his eyes looked into the sky. And he leaves this world that will the Allahu Taala and who doing the only thing that he was known for which was being a hero and battle.
Now Subhanallah I wanted to use this opportunity usually we end with a companion at their death. But I wanted to rewind a bit
when he dies all the Allah Tada and
he has a wife named Amina, and he leaves behind one son. Can anyone guess what his son's name would be? Who's the sahabi that's most famous for battle.
He has one son named college just shows you the way that time goes on how did all the Allah Han who who actually was the one that caused the turn of events and what would become a Muslim later on? I will do Jana has one son and he named him after the great warrior high little the Allahu taala.
But there's something about his character as well. Now there's a famous story about a blue Jana
that doesn't have a primary source to it. So I'm actually giving this disclaimer because there's a moral to be extracted from the story about character but I couldn't find it in any of the primary sources of sealer right you'll find in some of the contemporary writings, that after Salah with the John, I used to leave the prayer right away. And the profit slice I'm asked why he would receive right away he wouldn't make his ticket he wouldn't do his job. And it was because he told the profit slice on him that he had a Jewish neighbor and the tree of that Jewish neighbor extended into his his backyard. And basically sometimes the grapes or the dates would fall from that tree. And out of
Amman out of a sense of trust. He wanted to go collect it and give it to his neighbor because he didn't feel like it was his right. So it's sort of a noble story of a Buddha Jana that is mentioned some of the books but it doesn't have a son of a chain in particular. But Subhanallah the most amazing and astonishing thing and this could be the whole data about this man or the law of town and hope is actually an error
ration about a time he thought he was going to die.
Obviously, when people used to get sick back then you always hear that they have a fever and then they passed away, right? Because there are very few times where you have a diagnosis of what exactly is causing a person to be ill. Here's a man will the Allahu anhu, a hero of a snap who's known for battle? And he seems to be dying in the situation and people are visiting him to pay their final respects to him. As he lays in his bed, well, the Allahu Taala I hope with this hot fever and AWS some Radi Allahu Anhu says that we entered upon Abu Jana wahama read while he was sick. Carla Khanna watch who yet to Hell, he said his face was glowing like the man's face was glowing as if it was a
moon. So we said to him, Maddie what he can get to hell like what is it about your face that is glowing? Like what are you seeing right now? What are you thinking about? What's giving you the most hope right now? And I said Hala if you're able to Jana or if you're the person asking this question someone says to you why do you think you're gonna go to Jenna Why do you have hope and Allah right now what's your mind gonna go to
what do you think
the derive the profit slice I'm and broader than that.
You'll say You know, I always was out there fighting and I was always out there leading the way and I never backed down from a challenge and I always defended the week and I always did this and I stood up for the truth and you start to mention all of these things right? If you're able to general the Allahu Anhu Don't you think that's what gives him hope?
And I will do generally Hello Animal Response. This man, the man of the red bandana who wears red bandana before every battle. Karla mom and Amelie che in El Salvador and the minister entertain he said there are two things that give me hope in this moment when I meet Allah subhanaw taala. Carla, come to LA to Kela morpheme Allah Nene. He said number one, I never used to talk about things that don't concern me. I minded my own business.
It's cannula. The profit slice I'm suddenly christen the astounding amount of your tactical Humala. Yeah. And he one of the signs of a person's Islam being good is that they mind their own business, said, I never used to get involved in people's business. I didn't talk about things that don't concern me. So you know, usually a person who's really out there, right, who's got this sort of portfolio of boasting and war and taunting and he's got his clothes, he's got his moves. But he said, I never used to talk about things that don't concern me. And he said, the second thing can tell between Muslim ina Salema. He said my heart to all of my brothers and sisters was always pure.
I never held anything in my heart against any of my brothers and sisters. Subhan Allah, all that he did. And the thing that gives him hope is that his heart was clean and his tongue was clean. He's not talking about his sword. He's not talking about his hand. He's not talking about his heroics. He's talking about the moja, which is far harder than all of that Mujaddid to NAFSA shape on to strive against yourself and to strive against the shape lon, and don't involve yourself and things that are going to cause you regret on the day of judgment. He said that's what I'm hopeful to meet Allah subhanaw taala with
now, if that's what he thought would get him into Jana, despite everything that he did will be a long time.
What about ourselves, and so it gives you some perspective into the balance that the Prophet sign summon was creating in these men. Even the people that used to fight back then they used to fight for lowly things. And so they had lowly behavior. But look at the nobility of this man. Well, the allowance I don't look at the character that the prophets lie some instilled in him.
And when you start thinking about yourself, well, I'm never gonna have a vagina like, you know, portfolio or profile. Look at what obudu JANA would have put at the top of his profile
that I never used to talk about people. And I used to keep my heart clean in regards to them. May Allah subhanaw taala reward these heroes of Islam, Abu janela, the Allahu Anhu and all of those on site and Mahajan, Linda surrounded our prophets like Selim, in his most vulnerable moment of May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to inculcate their zeal, their love, their character, their strength, their courage, in every way possible and manifest that in our hearts. So that becomes a reality of our lives as we read about their lives. May Allah subhanaw taala forgive us for our shortcomings. Allahumma Amin, sha Allah Tada. Next week, we'll we'll continue and we'll talk about Kobe Boon ID or
the Allahu Taala and sha Allah Tala. I will see you all then, masala Masaryk from abena Mohammed voila
