Everyone is Salam on equal Moroccan Salah here to cancel
out the blessed seminary ministry opponents in personnel recommended Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa everyone illa Allah bonamy kiba to Linwood Sakina Allahumma salli wa Salam wa barakaatuh Abdi Cora suka Mohamed Salah la hora and he was still in my early heat or somebody was telling him to swim and cathedra Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen we are finally at the most asked about companion since we have started the series, which is Khalid and then we'll read all the Allahu Taala and and as I mentioned to you
the reason why it took 120 Something episodes to get to find a little the alo animal is because we were trying to cover the companions that embraced Islam in terms of their order and obviously how to determine what eternal the Lord's how to and who embraces Islam much later. So I wanted to inshallah to add to begin with the significance of Halal just in the title. That imam of the hobby Rahim Allah to Allah gives him he is Khalid Ignat worried then Madeira. Now Abdullah normal and Masumi safe Hola heeta Anna with Hardee's we're fairly soon Islam.
Imam Rahim Allah to Allah calls him the sword of Allah subhana huzzah Anna, the hero of Islam, Al Imam Amir al Kabir ka Adel Mujahideen, Abu Sulayman, the great Imam, the Great General of the Mujahideen, the great leader, Abu Sulayman al Quraishi. Alma Kazumi al McKee, he is his nickname, or his corneas, Abu Sulayman are the Allahu taala. And from Quraysh from benrahma, zoom from Maccha webinar Octeon, mini Maimunah, Intel Harris, and he is the son of or he is the nephew, the maternal nephew, of the Mother of the Believers may mourn up until Hadith all the Allahu Taala and her the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam. And so we have here, a man who is extremely special,
who is extremely beloved to the Muslims, who many of you have been named after, or who you have named your children after, and for good reason. And who is without any dispute, the greatest Gen in the history of Islam after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, who remarkably only lived a few years after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but the man who we know as being responsible for bringing the two greatest empires in the world to their knees within one year, and dying only a few years after the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam. Now finally, little the longtime animal is going to take at least two classes, so we're not going to be able to cover him all in one class.
What I wanted to do tonight in sha Allah to Allah, is focus on the background up until the point of his becoming the sort of Allah safe Allah and then we'll take another lesson in sha Allah to Allah to talk about his contributions and his legacy in that capacity, and we basically have to go back to his tribe, we have to go back to his parents and there is lengthy discourse about his tribe and his parents before we get into who he is about the Allahu Taala and who and we start with the tribes 100 or the Allah Tada and who is from the tribe of Benin. Masoom Ben OMA zoom, is the greatest competitor of bento Hashem. So when we talk about bento Hashem and their generosity and what they
were known for, with the Pilgrims with those that were within Mecca, and those that would come to Mecca, for whatever reason for the pilgrimage, it has been Oh Harshman ventola zoom that are competing in generosity. It has been Harshman bento Masoom that are looked at as rival tribes as well as Benoit did Tao, which is the parent tribe of Ben Omiya. So you've really got three major tribes that are competing for the leadership of Qureshi and the leadership of Mecca. And of course, the most famous man from bedroom I presume, is none other than Abuja, when the cousin the first cousin of Fallot, or the Allahu Taala angle, and we know that Abuja had his entire hold up with the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was simply that he is Hashimi, he's not one of us. We cannot concede a profits to the stripe, or else benrahma Zoom will forever be less than Benu Hashem if we acknowledge that they have a prophet of Allah, amongst them, so basically, he's coming out of this tribe of Muslim which was very hostile to the Prophet sallallahu it was cinnamon hostile to Bentyl Husham competitors in generosity, competitors and status, competitors and power and his father happens to be the chief of that truck
So I will eat an animal here is the chief of battle magazine. He is the wealthiest man in Mecca. He is one of the most eloquent men in Maccha. He is a person who always will default to in terms of his opinion. He's the oldest of the chiefs of Quraysh. Okay, so he's also the oldest one amongst them, the oldest one, the richest one, the one that people will defer to in terms of opinion, and someone that the prophets lie Selim really wanted to become Muslim. Really wanted to become Muslim Rasul Allah sai son would direct many of his efforts towards this man becoming Muslim. Because if this man becomes Muslim, much of the heart ache, much of the trouble of Mecca would not happen. And of
course, Allah has podar was that the Prophet sly Sam had a much longer route with his mission that involves the story of Medina, the story of the unsolved and the story of coming back to Mecca. Victoria, so let's talk about his father for a moment. And his father. I'm just gonna give you one family connection through his father. All right, and we'll either Mahira is the brother of he sham ignorable hero. He sham Adnan Mahira is the father of Abuja. So if you go Abuja him Americano, he Sham is his real name. Abuja, Han and harlot. Their fathers are first cousins. Right? And so this affair of general Masoom is a serious one when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam announces his
prophethood. So let's talk about the Father for a moment and worried for a moment and will lead, as we said, is the wealthiest man in Mecca, extremely generous, but for all the wrong reasons, and this is something Subhanallah that's important to speak about when we talk about ulterior motives of people. If you met Al Walid and then Molina you'd say mashallah, this man operates practically, you know, every hotel and mecca for the travelers. He literally had homes that were just for the guests and the visitors that would come through Mecca, fully lit and people would be fully fed. He owns half of the real estate from Makkah, they said all the way to LA if every other house was owned by
an elite, the minimal hero. His generosity to the pilgrims, was exemplary. On top of that, he had the nickname of what he'd have won.
alone, alone in what and Allah is going to make a play on this nickname in the Quran. He was alone in what Qureshi used to replace the cover the Kiswa of the cat about once a year, the same way that they do today. But of course, for them it was idolatry. Right. For them, this was a part of their idolatry they had, you know, this was the tourism business right, so you got to replace the Kiswa once a year, every tribe would pitch in for the cost of the cover of the kava one year, and then al Waleed would take every other year all for himself. So you understand the concept. I'll pay for the whole thing one year, and then everybody else can get together collectively. And they can pay for it
the next year. So it was almost showing off his wealth that his wealth is the equivalent of everybody else in Mecca, that I'll take care of it one year Wahida alone, and you all take care of it the other year. And basically what ends up happening is that when Islam comes to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam, there is a strong deference immediately to what what Eid is going to do, what is this man going to do? And the amount of Quran that is going to be revealed about him disparagingly because of his rejection of the prophets line Salem is significant. And so we start to go through this. When Islam comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He goes to Al Waleed
and he asks him to sit with him and to listen to him recite the Quran, will eat as a smart man. He sits with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he hears the Quran and he says, I am a poet and I know poetry. This is not poetry. I've never known you to lie so you're not lying to me. He said, you don't have the looks of a can a sorcerer. I don't see any hoops or claws around you or any type of sorcery going on with you. I know what Sorcerer is looked like. He said, Let me think about what you are saying to me. But along the way, he's putting some some obstacles as well to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. One of them is I don't like the types of people that are
starting to follow you the poor and the disabled and, and the people of low class the slaves and I don't like this initial batch of of early Muslims. And so he is according to many of the Relena and nanana Stirner. In surah Abba, the one who was too proud to Antilla who Tasa stopped paying attention to that man. Pay attention instead to Abdullah Ahmed.
tomb are the Allahu Taala and who this man has a cubed problem he has an arrogance problem. And so that's the first thing he starts to kind of put a little bit of that. I don't like to take the type of people that are around you and the prophets I said I'm just trying to accommodate as much as he can without forsaking the mission to try to talk to him. One on one
lead here's the profit slice on recite the how I mean, the Hammonds of the Quran which are beloved Mr. Little the Allahu Anhu said, are the guardians of the Quran. It was his favorite section of the Quran, because it was early Mecca, beautiful, powerful all about Eman all about faith all about the Hereafter. And when he is clearly moved by the Quran, he goes to his people and in private, what is it what he's saying? He's saying, I am hearing something so beautiful from this man. And he said, It is not the words of insight or jinn, it is not the words of a human being or the words of a devil. So he's clearly moved. Now as he's going to the Prophet sly some a few times. And he's he's
listening to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abu Jahan, who is his what how is he related to lead? I want to see if you guys caught at least that connection
is his nephew, his nephew, right? And even he sham Abuja. His real name is Ahmed ibn hishammuddin Molina. So this is uncle
Abu Jamal is a professional at obstructing people from embracing Islam Subhanallah I think about why he has so much sin on his shoulders. He obstructs apple pie limp. He obstructs and will eat. He obstructs lochmaben Aviemore eight he obstructs every single powerful person that could help the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam. Abuja had basically customizes a way to stop that person from embracing Islam. while also being the first person to insult the Prophet slice I'm in public in a very particular way, while also being the person to first kill people the most thug I've seen the weak ones like Somalia or the Allah in Santa Ana, for embracing Islam. This is the pharaoh of this
ummah, for a reason.
So Jehan, he has to come up with a way to approach his uncle. So he goes to him.
And he's really sad.
So worried, says Malika. What is it? What is it? Oh, my nephew. Why are you so sad? He said, Well, don't you hear the rumors about you?
He said, What rumors? Well, they said that you keep going to the house of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And you know why they say you're going to the house of Muhammad? sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And when he said why? He said they say they say it's always they say, all right, they say unto the heel, you're a stingy person, and you're going to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam for his food and his money.
You see, he's a he's a rich proud man. Right? So the way to really break him and get get to his mind play with his mind a bit is to say, you're financially corrupted, you're going to him because you need his money. You you think that there's some financial gain to gain out of this new religion.
So worried he stands up? He says, you can only handle coal. Are they really saying that about me? He said, that's what they're saying about you. And then he insults the Prophet slice and um, he says, This man can't even feed himself. Why would I go to him for food? Right? He starts talking about his money and starts talking about his power. So Bucha hell. He said, Oh, so you're not going to him for money. Are you going to him? Because you follow Him now you follow his religion now? And will lead says no, we're not going to tarbiyah No, no, I don't follow his religion. I was just listening to him. I was hearing what he has to say. So Abuja had wanted to get unworried to this point, where Al
Walid will say so what should I do? Like how do i dispel the rumors?
And Abuja says, that your home your people will not be satisfied until you say about Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what we say about him to cold man or cold, you have to say about him what we say. He said, Well, what are you are saying? Said Kedah sir Majnoon started to throw out all the insults about the prophets. I send them he's a liar. He's a poet. He's a magician. He's a sorcerer. And when he says,
I know a liar, and he's not a liar.
I know a poet and he's not a poet. I know the Sorcerer is and he's not a sorcerer.
And so Buddha says to him,
ya Walid Oh Walid enter Kabiru como Kevin hasn't even occurred to you. He's going back to play on his pride. You are the leader of your people. You're the great one of your people. How come prophethood came to him and not you will call you Lola nosy Lucha Quran Allah Allah Raja mineral Korea Tanya when another verse in Surah zoflora for Allah subhanaw taala Anna says, they said, How come the Quran did not come to one of the two great men of the two great towns this
Two great men are elderly did Primavera and erworben Miss Ruth, a third coffee in Perth? So basically why is it that it's not coming to one of these two people? Why is it coming to a lonelier person and wealth and status than Muhammad? sallallahu alayhi wasallam Why is it coming to him? Why not you?
So he basically says, you know, listen, let's let's sort of talk about this right, let's go and let's, let's gather everyone together and let's talk about a plan to foil the prophets of Allah audio systems, Darrell, he said, I've heard him it's a powerful message that he has. So Abuja has chosen he calls this assembly
and what he does there, and when he starts to play, through the different scenarios of what will work to delegitimize the Prophet salallahu annual center, so he goes through he says, Listen, no one's ever gonna believe the man's a liar.
Prophets lie some has never told the lion is life. A Sadhak. I mean, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which, by the way, shows you the importance of having the moral high ground with what you preach. He doesn't lie. He's, we know poetry. What he has is not poetry. This is too powerful to be poetry. We are the poets of the world.
He's not a sorcerer. No one's gonna believe because a cabin looks a little weird and you know, sorcerers kind of have have a vibe to them. So it will lead as he's walking around and pacing and I want you to imagine, visualize this as the father had a little the Allahu taala. And he comes back and he says, in the Hussin on yourself.
You know what it is? It's a magician, or he's got some sort of magic that dilutes people it overcomes people. Kowloon Bashar, but at the end of the day, it's the word of a man.
Look at on Bucha Hana.
Bucha Hana says, is that what we're saying?
He says, because I want to go tell everyone that l Waleed says session on.
All this is is magic that overcomes people. You see, Sahara is different from sorcery in a way, right. So head can come through different practices in different ways. And it's less obvious than than a sorcerer or a soothsayer that people go to.
said, well, it says that's what we're going with.
At that point, Bucha hell goes out and he says that all it is a sticker on your thumb. All this is is magic that overcomes people. And what ends up happening is that that basically becomes the way by which they delegitimize the Prophet sallallahu when he was summoned, I listened to what Allah reveals, because it basically comes down as a play by play of what the lead was doing in certain Madatha ALLAH SubhanA wa says, Dharani woman Haluk to Wahida now you want now you know where the play is on the word. Allah says, Leave me to the one I created all by myself Wahida he and I will have an have our time. The prophets lie Selim is being told by Allah azza wa jal that this person
who Allah privileged in a singular way will be punished in a singular way. wa jal Tula who Mal and do that and I granted him abundance, ma'am, do that wealth that just extends and extends and extends and extends well beyond initial Buddha. And he had children always around him. Hi, literally, Allah, I know has a lot of siblings, we're going to talk about them. We don't even know all of their names. The man had all sorts of siblings, when they had to the whole time he then made his life so easy for him. So my ultimate goal and as he and then he wants me to increase him, like he's not satisfied at what he does a rich man. He's the richest man in America and he's not satisfied with his wealth.
Allah Subhana Allah says, come in who can Tina I need? Verily he was stubborn with our revelation. And Allah subhanaw taala says, settled or hippo Horsa Ruda, I'm going to make his fates unbearable in the whole fact. CARAVACA Darren and this is where it gets really interesting. Allah basically gives us a preview of the room that Al Walid was in when he was talking to everyone. Fact CARAVACA he was walking around, and he was thinking for container kafer cada and may He be perished? How evil was his estimation as he's walking around the room with the leaders of Qureshi and he is going through these things. So manava and then he, he looked out and he thought to himself, and he either
celibacy. He frowns and then he, you know, he looked again. So he's basically talking about his pacing. Some developer was stuck, but then he turned his back on the truth and He filled up his chest with all sorts of arrogance for Karla in her session on yourself. He said all this is is some magic from the old times. The prophets lie some is polluting us with in her Illa COVID Bashar all this is is the word of man. Allah's contessa Asli he Sarkar soon I will scorch him in the fire, and the verses continue about his punishment in hellfire Subhan Allah, this was a play by play of what Al Walid had done, and you have to think about the father of Highlander are the loads on Hollywood
If he was someone who knew that this was coming from the heavens, and now this is about him, this should shake him to the core, but his arrogance keeps overtaking him, and so he becomes even more insolent with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more committed to de legitimizing the messenger Salallahu Alaihe Salam, Allah reveals another set of ayat about him, sort of column. Last plantar says what I told her I couldn't let her laugh in the hand do not obey every vital foul mouth person, hummus and Masha and Bina mean, someone who always creates scandal, and passes on tails and falsehoods. manera and Neil highly monitored in a theme. This is a person that hinders all sorts of
good, a sinful transgressor are tuned in better than he can. Zeny and this is where I mentioned this in the hole some time ago, where Allah subhanaw taala mentioned how arrogant he was and then said, and by the way, he's a he's a child of Zina. He's a child of adultery.
And worried, goes to his mother.
He says to his mother, he said, Allah just described me with nine traits.
He said, the first eight I think are true.
Like he, he has a little bit of self awareness. You know what, I am arrogant. I am vile, I do talk down to people, I curse people. I have this pride in me. But he said the only one that I can't accept is any. I'm a child of adultery. How am I a child of adultery? So imagine Allah just revealed the play by play of what he was doing with the chiefs of Quraysh. And now Allah's Can't I just said, and by the way, you're a child of adultery. And his mother tells him that your father is not actually your father.
His mother tells him that basically your your father was unable to we were unable to conceive. And she says that she committed Zina that she committed adultery, in our bustle the Allahu Anhu Moneris. That was an atlas of ensure as one of the other core enemies of the prophets of Allah or Islam. So imagine the Felisa the humiliation that Allah just exposed these people with that you're so proud about your tribe. And you're so proud about how you boast over the people with your money and with your children. And this is who you really are. And Waleed isn't worried Subhanallah
after that, he continues and he becomes more aggressive with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And one of the things that he does because he has a lot of children.
One of his children was a man by the name of Amara, Amara
Amara or O'Meara, even ulead was basically one of his prized children super handsome, also very wealthy, very skilled. He had him trained in the arts. One of the things that he decides to offer when they go to Abu pilot with to offer
he says to Abu Talib, you know, what, how about this, let's make a deal. I'll give you a Mara. You give me Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, let's trade kids. You can have Amara mashallah prize child of Quraysh everybody loves him. Super good looking
very good at trade. You know, let's make a trade, Apple Tada. He says to him, so you want to give me your son who I will feed and care for? And I give you my son so you can kill him? Absolutely not. Right, because they're still trying to operate at this point of the dry to try to crush the profits and ice on them within their existing mechanisms to not violate the system that gives them the power that they have. So let's make a trade. I'll give you my son. Give me your son. And let me handle him. Let me take care of her. So Al Waleed basically fills up all of these different things. And he is someone who's going to die a very interesting stuff.
So what ends up happening with him after some time
he was one day walking. And this is immediately after the Hijra. So this is before better immediately after the Hijrah, he doesn't die in better.
If you actually look at the sources, you find that he dies a very interesting death. He was walking one day, and he was an older person at this point. And there was a man from venofer Zara who used to make spears and arrows. We basically had this area where he would make his spirits. He'd make his arrows and he'd plant them in the ground, put them in piles and stuff like that. And then when he accidentally stepped on one of them
when he stepped on one of them, it caused a major split in his foot major wounds, the wound gets infected. And basically that's what's going to cause his death.
So this proud man Subhanallah look how last Karnataka showed him his worth, in such a way
so and when he does on his deathbed, and you can see the mentality that had a little the Allahu Anhu is going to grow up with with his with his parents here with his father here in particular. And what he does on his deathbed and he calls his children to him. And he says I have three, three things to give you as we'll see as my will. So number one
go and take my do I take my blood money compensation from ventajas era. Now the reasoning is, is that if you don't he actually likes Ben Hosanna he doesn't want an all out war. If he dies as a result of this, some of his tribe might go wage war and benefits and these two tribes are going to fight each other. But he says go take my blood money from them. compensation from them. The man didn't mean to kill me, it was accidental. But then number two, he says, bandwidth a thief owes me a lot of money from river a lot of money from loans, a lot of interest in usury. Is he going to say forgive it? He said no. He said go and take every single little home that they owe me and bring it
back to us. I don't want them with a piece of any of my monies personally still thinking about his money even as he's dying. Look how Allah describes the person so perfectly like a mindset and attitude so perfectly. Number three.
One of his daughters was divorced by a man by the name of Ibn Abi Jose here in Xavier, and they've been able to Jose Hara divorced her and basically it was a nasty dispute. And then what he did not like the way he divorced his daughter, so he basically said I want revenge.
I want revenge on had been abused, they hit for what he did with my daughter, go go take revenge from him. These are his last three commandments, or his last three will saya on his deathbed and SubhanAllah. As a result of that they did they took the blood money from his IRA. They also went to the thief and they tried to take all the money back and it ended up leading to all sorts of problems between Bonanza thief and and Ben on Masoom. And Abu Sufyan had to basically avert like a war because it led to all sorts of skirmishes and bad blood. And he sham even Walid so he'd had a son named Hashem he has a brother named Dijon was the father of Bucha had one of his sons is named
Alicia and Woody. He went and he killed him and Zika started basically a mini war between bento Masoom and his people and above Sofia had to go and clean that one up too. So just shows his love, vindictive, foul
man who was diluted by his wealth, diluted by his tribe, and who Allah subhanaw taala humiliated in so many different ways and this is the man who call it all the Allah Tada and who has as a father. Now with all that being said, Ha little the Allah and was his youngest son.
And at the end of the day, God loves his father all the allowance All right, very generous with his family. I mean, his children did not have to lift a finger to work. He took care of everything, right? So he's very generous with his family and how little they allow and who loves his father.
But this is who his father actually is. And we'll come back to how that actually affects kind of little the alongside animal later on. As for the mother of harlots, I'm going to put up this chart on the screen.
All right, I want you all to memorize that in five seconds.
All right. If you go back and you watch the lecture on lubob mental health, we actually did a whole lecture on this chart.
The mother of Abdullah and Abbas can you actually put it back up and show the time the mother of Abdullah bin Ambassador De La Jolla and who is Lu Baba Bentyl Harith al Cobra, the older le Baba. And you'll see all the way at the end of that chart blue Baba Asakura she's also new Baba mental habits so there are two Baba mental habits, the big one and the small one.
The mother of harlot is the sister of the wife of the Prophet slice on May Monado, the Allahu Taala and her later on, but what's significant about this chart when you go back and you watch the lecture about No Baba is that all these people on here become harlots cousin through his mom.
Alright, so Abdullah bin Ibis is his cousin. And it goes on and on and on and on as to the types of relationships that are made through his mother. So Khalid is related to a lot of people. He's He's literally like everybody's cousin. Alright, just to give you a little bit of the mindset, he's also I'm going to talk about the Allah and his cousin through his father's side, or Omar, his mother hand Tamar is the first cousin of college. So he's kind of second cousin through his father's side.
Or Alma, his mother is hundreds, first cousin, so he's related to our model the Allah animal that way. The point is, is that harder though the Allahu Anhu is someone who has a lot of blood ties and Quraysh he is someone that has a lot of power, there really aren't many ways to disadvantage this man in a Kurashiki society. And just for the sake of time, I won't go through all the implications of the mother since we've spoken about that already. In a previous lecture, he has everything that you could possibly want in terms of tribal superiority, in terms of power, in terms of money. As far as siblings, they are too many to name. We're only going to talk about one or two of them in the
process of historian so let's get to Harlan little the Lakota and who himself
caught a little the Allahu Taala and who is the last child or one of the last children about what eat
the dynamic of that is that you know,
He has a lot of siblings that have already enjoyed the privilege of their father. He has a lot of first, second and third cousins that are within that realm of power. And he is someone who is going to receive all of the riches and all of the luxury that comes with being the last child of the most powerful man the richest man in Mecca. But when he was born, he was born very distinguished. He was huge physically. Alright, so the description of how to do a little the Allah Tada and who is that he looks like the twin of Alma real hip hop or the Allah Tada. And that's everything you need to know, physically and stature, extremely tall, and extremely muscular. They said that there was not, you
know, a pinch on how to double the load on his body, it was all muscle, literally made of muscle, while the Allahu Taala is
extremely handsome, extremely poetic. And someone who is going to grow up loving war, loving the arts of war, loving the arts of battle. So him and Armadyl the Allahu Anhu are cousins. They're basically known as the two strongest youth of Mecca kind of is, by the way, 20 years younger than the Prophet slice and and there's a significant age gap between him and the Prophet sizer. Um, he's a young man. You know, he's not someone who's at that level of Abu Sufyan and Eros, and some of these older people, when they're disputing with the Prophets Isom, he's a young person, and him in almost all the law, and who are the two wrestlers, the two strongest man in Makkah. And they have a
deep and profound relationship with one another, and they're always in competition. So he's known for his skill in wrestling. And he's known for his deep intelligence, and particularly how he manages to master every single one of the arts of war. So his family sent him out to basically learn some of the harshness of the desert Subhanallah one of the narrations about him in his biography is that he actually almost died as a child from smallpox. But Allah subhanaw taala spared him from that. And you can imagine that in that desert climate, a lot of children would have died under those conditions. And he grows up only caring about war. only caring about the skills of war, could not
care less about buying and selling could not care less about trade. And his father had all the money he needed anyway, so he really did not even have to exert himself in learning anything about being a merchant, or anything about trade. He went to different parts of the world with his father with his siblings, where they would take their caravans. But while he's traveling in different parts of the world, all he's doing is he's learning the stories, the heroic tales of the Persian Empire and the Roman Empire. And all of these epic stories about some of the commanders and the great military minds of the world at the time, and they say about harlots. Subhanallah and this is very
significant, that most people can master one skill and they might be sufficient and the others had a little yellow animal was the best in archery. Kyle, it was the best in spear throwing hard, it was the best in horseback riding hard, it was the best in Camelback riding hard. It was the best sword fighter hard it was the best strategist, he was absolutely unmatched in terms of his military genius, even as a kid, no one could come close to him, are the Allahu Taala and who, and he trains other young people in that so his physical strength, his mind, everything surrounds the idea of battle. And that's all that he wants to do. As he grows up. He is though, as we said, uniquely
intelligent, deeply intelligent, and he knew poetry and by the way, this was a description of our model the alongside Daniel as well our model the Allahu Anhu was literate, he could read and write, and he knew poetry kind of little, the Allahu Anhu knew poetry, was learning about history was learning about the world around him. And all of that is significant to his development. Now when does his interaction with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam first take place? And this is where you start to see the family influence on a man.
When the battle of bed that happens, how literally Allah and His father was already done. So he's not like his cousins or a Chroma and Abuja who, you know, who's of course, also his cousin, he's not like Cephalon of an omega. He's not like the others that are his age whose fathers were not embedded and were killed. Follow the law and whose dad was already dead and better tended to be the seniors of Quraysh going out to fight the the Muslims who had fled to El Medina, hunted all the Allahu Anhu comes back to Mecca and he missed better because he was on a trade route.
So when he comes back, he finds out that one of the people that has been taken as a captive by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was his brother elderly didn't elaborate. And well, he didn't actually throw the Allahu Taala and who we'll talk about later in show
on time and when he didn't have a lead.
So how did says, Well, I've got to go free my brother from captivity. Now the prophets I send them, of course took 70 captives from bedded. And the prophets lie. Some showed the mercy He ransom them, in accordance with what they were able to do. So they went out to kill them. The prophets I seldom found a way out for the captives. And the prophets lie some assign different ways. And he said, esino that show them axon, show them excellence. Do not change them too hard. Feed them what you eat, clothe them, what you clothe yourselves. Don't be rough with your prisoners, the prophets lay some understands that this is the first battle between the Muslims and those that persecuted them
and cause them to flee. This could soften their hearts as well. So the prophets lie. Some says show them excellent show them excellence. And the prophets, like some sets ransoms in accordance with the capacity of the families of the prisoners. All right.
So if this person comes from a tribe that the prophets lie some nose can only afford a few Durham's the prophets lie some sets the ransom as that. And if they come from richer families, the prophets lie some sets the ransom a little bit higher. And if they have nothing to pay at all, what does the prophets lie some do?
He says, Let them teach people how to read Subhan Allah gives them that option to teach people how to read to go free. So he's putting things in accordance with who they are. Who do you think had the highest ransom?
And when he why because his dad is the guy and Canada man and woman in His dad's the richest man in Makkah.
So his ransom is 4000 dinars, that's a huge amount of money at the time. So he's by far, the most expensive prisoner to free Khalid are the Allahu taala. And really, when the prophets like some was starting his Darwin Mecca, he's one of the youth he's kind of aloof to this whole thing. And that is the best way to describe him. And that's a mindset, a psychology, when you go back and you read history, that some people were not necessarily like charged, maybe it's their status, maybe it's just their interest. He was kind of aloof, he wasn't someone that was really fighting the Prophet slice of them like his father was. So he doesn't have too much beef with the Prophet slice of them.
But he's focused on his military genius. He comes to Medina alongside Ekrem in Abuja
and he basically brings the 4000 dinars to free his brother, so is meeting with the prophets like some in Medina is to give him the money is treated with respect so just to let you know, I mean, he did enter into Medina, paid for his brother's ransom took elderly Dibner will eat from him right and will lead the Marines who of course fought against the Prophet slice Allah and then they left Medina now they camped out at the Khalifa, how many of you've been around Rajan here?
Most of you Inshallah, tada. Some of you just don't want to raise your hands I understand. But the relief is where the Mikata is right? It's where the station is where you make your intention for Umrah so he takes his brother to the Khalifa. That night they go to sleep. He wakes up in the morning and his brother leaves him a letter. The letter is by the way, I've become Muslim and I went back to Muhammad sai summit in Medina.
So it's like wait a minute, you made me come all the way from Mecca put myself in danger to free you from the captivity of the prophets lie Selim. That huge amount of money to bring you out also that I could just take a few miles out of Medina. And then you go back to the prophets lie Selim. And he leaves in that letter and Khalid was very close to elite. And worried and Khalid were alone he didn't really and Fathom read were Close Brothers and in fact, subhanAllah they're gonna maintain communication throughout the years even as worried as a Muslim and harlots trying to kill the Muslims. There's letters that go between them
throughout and communication that remains, and we'll read about the Allahu Taala and who says to call it in nero at one o'clock and Muslimeen o'clock, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Marlon Edita, who are in the Kurdish look, I saw from the character of the Muslims and the character of their prophets of Allah honey was salam. What I have never seen from Kurdish and I wanted to embrace Islam as I saw their their character you see, subhanAllah the way the Muslims treated their prisoners was enough to win the heart of what he did Mali. But he said, This is a proud people. He said I didn't want to embrace Islam in my chain so that they would say he only embraced Islam to get
himself out of captivity. I wanted to come back and embrace Islam as a free man.
So he didn't wait to go back to Mecca. And when he didn't read all the Allah Tala and who and somehow it just shows you the edge of these people because he's going to be doing data to find it for the next decade until it embraces Islam and we'll even read wanted to come to the profit slice on them as a free man and so imagine the joy of the Prophet signing someone and what he didn't and what he comes back to Medina right after the night after being freed and says a shadow Allah, Allah, Allah, masha Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah the Prophet slicin was so happy with his Islam and by the way the prophets I'm loved and will lead the lead. And there is one narration Subhanallah that one
actually didn't read passed away because he
died in the time of the Prophet signing some of them that I'm sentimental the Allahu taala. Anna, who's from that tribe? She asked the prophets like Selim, you had a sort of fk it. Can I cry over him like she's holding back her tears and they're trying to understand the rulings of Islam I allowed to shed tears over that and the prophets lie Selim says, Go ahead up here and he go ahead and cry over him. So she said, Yeah, ain't no fap Killian, well, he didn't read it, then Madeira mithril. Well, he didn't read, I believe Kevin Asherah. You know, I cry over a lowly diviner read and suffice it from a people to have amongst them a man like elderly didn't are worried or bullied
because he had a son named Willie didn't really didn't really eat for the profit slice and by the way, changed his name to Abdullah because there's too many leads in the chain. So the prophets lie some changed his son's name to Abdullah Abner what even really, but this was the nobility of this man in the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and this is the man who's going to start doing Dawa to his brother calling his brother to an Islam then comes or hurt or hurt is going to be the first time the hardest little the Allahu Taala and who brings his military genius as a strategist against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And we're unfortunately hot a little the
Allahu Taala and who will make his name amongst the Metcons carrying out the most devastating tragedy against the Muslims in one shot. Right? Is this battle a hit? So Abu Sufyan is the one who's commanding the army. And he divides the two sides of the army between Eric Rama in Abidjan and Khalid bin Walid
Ekrem and Khalid their cousins. Remember, they're both from veteran Muslim, right? And they're both very skilled in battle. Eric Chroma has a bone to pick with the Muslims because his father is Abu Jamal. Alright, so Ekrem in particular, really hates the prophets all along. So I'm really hates the Muslims. 100 has a bone to pick with the Muslims, but he's really interested and carrying out his brilliance and showing it on the battlefield. So an overhead Abu Sufyan commands the center, he puts a chroma in charge of the right flank, and he puts carded in charge of the left flank. The left flank naturally aligns with jugular Ruma Okay, jugular Roma, which is the famous mountain of the
archers, so kinda little the Allahu Anhu is coming in from this side, and he's got his eyes on the mountain of the archers, where there are 50 Archers, that the prophets lie some commands to be on that mountain to watch the backs of the Muslims in a hurt so hard a little the Allah and hope he takes the left side. And obviously, the battle ensues and in the Battle of Earth. We know the famous story that the prophets lie some commanded the archers not to come down from the mountain even if they think the battle is over. The Muslims won the initial battle. The prophets lie some said do not come down until I tell you to come down 40 of them saw that it seemed like it's over. Now they're
just collecting the spoils I mean, there are a lot of shields a lot of horses a lot to be collected from the spoils of war 40 of the 50 rundown
how to draw the Allahu Taala and who is watching from the other side this all happening
and so how to double the Allah Tala and who comes up with the strategy, which was to make it seem like we are retreating, but to circle around and to attack from the back because now the main protection of the Muslims was gone which was the archers kind of thought of the Allah Tala animal himself
goes and he takes out the 10 Archers that are remaining. And he says early Hoban could have many were and I will Sulaiman. He glorifies hobo and he says, Take it from me and I am also a man his name was Abu Salim, and because his older son was Sulaiman even harder, there'll be a lot of Tyler and Homer. So Hydral, the Allahu Anhu takes out the remaining 10 Archers, and basically ambushes the Muslims from behind. And this of course, was the first time that the Muslims had experienced tragedy at that level. And harlot comes home to Mecca to a hero's welcome because ultimately it was his strategy that won the battle for the Meccans and keep in mind that the prophets lysozyme was saying
what in the battle ahead Allah humma friendly calm if and Allah Allah mon Oh ALLAH forgive my people, they don't know any better. So if it wasn't for harlot taking that position, I just want you to once again understand that the journey of redemption of a human being almost a Fionna and Eric Rama were shaken by the initial skirmish, they were ready to retreat.
Khalid was the one who planned this counter attack, and that won the battle for the Metcons so this is the first battle of fighting little the low tide against the Muslims and he's a hero. Next comes the Battle of hunt duck the Battle of the Trench. Now what the Muslims have done in the Battle of the Trench, building that trench around Medina. It really
is a bullet proof strategy so long as they don't give up any part of the trench kind of little the alongside and what was given the SubhanAllah. When you think about like history, he was given the assignment of assassinating the prophets like Selim. He's actually the most skilled assassin, the most skilled general, his job is to go into kill the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam kind of little the Allahu Anhu is an expert in diversion tactics. And we're gonna see this throughout the life of how the law and was military genius, especially next week, that God was able to create images and to create alertness in different parts of the battlefield, even in the way that he uses the animals
Subhanallah even in training horses to act in a certain way, at certain times, so that he can divert your attention as the opposing army so that you don't know which point to attack. Kata does an expert at that, and that is the way that he's going to win many of the battles for the Muslims and the future. Right is diversion tactics. So first of all, the Allahu Anhu is the one who actually creates enough diversions at some point on the hunt duck to penetrate and to cause somewhat of a lapse and hunt up. But at the end of the day, we know that Allah subhanaw taala sent the powerful winds and turned the Mexicans back to from hunt duck, then comes for the BIA
should they be
the prophets like some of course is coming to make ombre from Medina peacefully with the Muslims. Kind of little the Allahu Anhu was given the instruction of blocking the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from Mecca.
And the prophets lie Selim basically uses harlots tactic on him, which is that the prophets lie Selim sends a smaller group on the traditional route while he takes the Muslims on another route on a side route all the way to her Davia which is only by the way about 10 miles away from Macau.
So while ago the Allahu Anhu was outsmarted by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with his own type of tactic. And this was actually to hide a little the low on a sign not just of the prophets license genius, a sign of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being a messenger of Allah.
So how the Allahu Anhu was watching her they via
obviously, the Treaty of her they via is settled, the Muslims will return back, and they will come for Romera Toluca, they will come for the makeup ombre the next year, on the condition that they're not going to be harmed, in exchange for other things, and we're not going to go through the Treaty of her they be, again, how to double the Allahu Anhu throughout this time. He basically says that I was considering Islam multiple times. So his brother stays in communication with him and harlots, an intelligent man, he knows something is special about the Prophet salallahu Salam, but he speaks through a series of incidents, that ends up happening that really convinces him for one. He talks
about watching the profit slice I'm in the hole and also during that trip,
and he witnesses them in solitude, health, the prayer of fear. The prayer of fear allows for the Muslims to pray in a very unique way right one group does PM, another group comes in and stands up one group does record and then they leave and they guard the ranks and other group comes in and does record facing the Qibla is not necessary. The imam prays in the middle of the ranks not in the front of them. I mean, there is all sorts of things that happen in selected health. May Allah protect us from ever being in a situation where we need to do that. But it's a it is a prayer that basically allows for the Muslims to be smart during battle while still fulfilling their obligations. The
beauty of it is that it shows that you can't give up your prayer even in that situation even in battle. Even when you're afraid that there's an enemy that's going to attack you.
So how does little the Allah Tada and who is watching and he said, I thought I just thought to myself, you know what if I just take them out during Salah.
So he said I watched them pray the Lord and then I waited for them for us when he described the prophets I'm praying in the middle and then all of these different things that are happening.
And he says for what coffee can be and the hardened Abuja will help. So just it really occurred to me at that point, for whatever reason. So this man has some truth that came to him. Why because the religion takes into consideration things that I've never seen before. So it's further convincing him of the intelligence of the deen of Islam.
Then he now takes the story himself.
He says llama Aurora de la Hui? Mount orada Meenal higher.
When Allah wanted from me what he wanted from me of good. He said Qaddafi will be humble Islam. Allah put in my heart suddenly a love of Islam. This is a new feeling that I have. Suddenly I had a love of Islam couldn't explain it. That landed in my heart. Well hello Ronnie Rushdie and
I found guidance
coming to me. And he said, I said to myself cut your head to head in a lot and kulula Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, every single one of these situations you've witnessed of the prophets lie some in every single time Allah made a way out for him. The man is divinely protected. I know that he's divinely protected, otherwise I would have got to him.
So he said in my heart, I knew something was there. He said, and while I was thinking that kettlebell layup
my brother wrote me a letter and would eat
and when he says to him,
lamb Ara jam in the hub, your IQ and Islam,
one o'clock, I will eat says there is nothing in the world that perplexes me more than you're not embracing Islam and you have the brain that you have. You're too smart to not recognize this as the truth.
And he says workouts, Ernie rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and can by the way, harlot the prophets like some asked me about you. And the prophets, like some came to me and said, Aina harlot Where's Khalid and I said to the prophets lie Selim, yet Tila Hui Allah will bring him to us.
And the prophets lie some responded and he said, A man like Khalid is too smart to not become Muslim.
So what he was telling Khalid about this conversation he had with the Prophet slice and um, that the prophets lie some said, You're too smart not to be Muslim. And Khalid is saying that this is corresponding to Islam suddenly being in my heart and the sudden newfound love that I have with the dean.
So he said that my brother said to me for Cedric Yeah, Fe mathematic middle height, think Oh, my brother Mathematica communicate about all the good you've missed out on
and I expect to see you here in the ranks of the Muslims
that's one more thing I had a little the Allahu Anhu says that in Iraq about 10 feet Islam this increased me and my desire to be Muslim. By the way we're gonna go a little bit later tonight inshallah Tada so I apologize to all of those that are coming
for us a lot to the Russia. He says that any Robert and Phil Islam. He said that that made me want Islam even more. What sir Rodney McCartan, Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I was pleased that the Prophet slice I'm asked about me like wait a minute, like the Prophet slice Saddam is not vengeful towards me. He's not vindictive towards me. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually wants me to become Muslim. He cares about me, right? I have a chance. This is coming from a man who's the son of his dad who's basically getting hit hit jobs on his deathbed like I have a chance. Then remember the story of me Mona vented Hadith, the prophet slice I'm married her in
accordance with His coming into Mecca. And also Allah say some use this as a way by which he could soften the hearts of the tribe and bring them to the wedding. The prophets lie some invited the non Muslim relatives to the wedding to the feast he's trying to show a connection it is salatu salam, cada double the Allahu Anhu is the nephew of Mei Moana, and this further softens his hearts. Then he said I had a dream. So he's sees the wedding of me Mona. Carla's heart is completely now overwhelmed by Islam.
Cardinal the Allahu Anhu says, I had a dream out often Manam me Phoebe Laden by Yuka said I saw on a dream as if I am in this tight land, this constricted land. It was dry and barren and it looked miserable. He says for Harajuku Isla Bella didn't UCLA was here, he said, so I went to this expansive green meadow. So in my dream I exit out of a dry desolate barren place, tiny place and I go to this why beautiful garden. And he said later on, he said, I woke up and I said in a heartbeat. Yeah. This is this is not just a dream. I know what dreams are. This is not just a dream, this is a vision. And he said I asked him to back into the law and who later on and I will record all the law
annual said Who am I Raju Khalili, haddock Allahu de la Islam. What the Who was shocked that Abu Bakr said to me that this was ALLAH taking you from disbelief to Islam, the constricted place that was your ship, that was your polytheism. So like, that was the last dream I had. So how will the law I know so that's when I kind of wanted to float the idea with some of my friends about possibly becoming Muslim.
So I went to Sofia and then omega, I'm sorry, so far, I've been omega one and omega. And so far, I've been omega as I said, college related to everybody and he has a lot of brothers and sisters. So flying up an omega is not just the son of the famous omega,
who was killed by below the Allah and after he tortured him. So one is also his brother in law. He's married to a sister of god named Nadia. So he said, I told someone you know, I'm thinking about becoming Muslim. We know that he's on the truth. We know that Muhammad sai son has the truth. Why don't we go into
embrace Islam. So one stood up and he swore by Allah to Allah Reza, he swore by the idols. He said, If all of Qureshi embraced Islam except for one man I'd be the one man who doesn't embrace Islam by the way so find all the Allah on who embraced Islam later on. But he said, if everybody in Croatia embraced Islam I'll be that one guy that doesn't embrace Islam. He said he killed my my father, he killed my brother. These are people by the way, who were responsible for Virginia as well the massacre of Algeria.
So he said okay, loves the fun of me alone. And he said, I kind of made an excuse for myself. Look, he lost his father he lost his brother is a little too personal for him. He wasn't ready yet. So then I went to a comedy event Abuja Hello, Eric Chroma was his best friend.
And Chroma is his cousin. And a chroma also is the son in law of his sister Fatima. Bintan. Walid they're all related. Right? So his sister is economics mother in law. He's his cousin. He's his best friend. Says economic we know that Mohammed sai Sam has some truth. We all know it. What are we waiting for?
Eric Rama says you want me to follow a man who killed my father Abuja. I'm going to follow a man who killed my father. Absolutely not. No way. And he says I told myself, you know, I can't really blame him too much. Because at the end of the day, he lost his dad. It's still personal to him. I left him alone. Now eczema goes and he talks to other Sophia.
Sophia is now the last of sort of the elders in this in this entire space. And the rumors start to spread that our prized military general is asking, What do you think if we become Muslim?
So Abu Sufyan basically at the at the request of economic or at the rumor come from economic he goes to college with a group of the elders of Quraysh.
And Abu Sofia and says, Oh, hi, I'm hearing that you're considering Islam. Is that true? When it says Yeah, it's true.
I was the founder was expecting him to lie and hide it, because it is not afraid of anybody. I mean, everybody around him. These people kill Muslims for a living. So yeah, it's true. What are you going to do about it? Right, so it gets rough above Sofia and draws his sword they start, they start to basically get a little bit testy Ekrem, who started the whole problem in the first place. He stands next to Harvard. And he says Harvard has a right to become Muslim if he wants to if he wants to become Muslim. I'll become Muslim with him. And he ends the entire skirmish. Why because Abu Sufyan is not from general Muslim at the end of the day. Eric from Antara Derma Kazumi, you're from
Bentonville Mejia know your lane, get out of here. So Eric Chroma who started the skirmish, kind of ends it because he doesn't want Carter to be killed. He said I didn't bring you here to kill the man. I brought you here to talk him out of it. And you people escalated this too quickly. Kind of though the Allahu Anhu that night he says, You know what? That's everything I needed to see, to basically make my last determination to become Muslim, colorless, I'm done with these people. Allah put it in my heart. He felt alienated from his own people. Ekrem was like, come on, like, please stop this. Don't you see what's happening? Kind of dislike, move on. So how will the Allahu Anhu
says that I gathered my stuff, and I went out at night to go to meet the Prophet slice on Medina. And he said, and I thought to myself, I'd really love to not be alone in this. He said, subhanAllah I found Earth man, I've been called her. Remember the woman that wanted to drink out of the skull of Osman Talbot that's her son.
And I bumped into this man and told her
that I'm not afraid of anybody that come to Lola, the audience. I told them exactly what I was going to do. And he responded and he said, You know what, I'm going to do the same thing. I'm actually on my way to Medina to embrace Islam.
So far that says, so I sent him the law gotta I've got a companion now. So how did the nurse might have been told her said, you know, we made our way to El Medina. And he said, once we got to the outskirts of Mecca, he said, We bumped into Armorican us
an army Amazon answers Manhattanville calm. Welcome to the to my brothers Welcome to these people. They said we're big and he was well, he said a NEMA zero calm where you are going. And they said, We're going to read Rasulullah sallallahu. He said, and we're going because we want to meet the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
asked us you know what, I'm going to do the same thing.
I'm going to has a story which we're going to talk about, by the way, he went back to Abyssinia it's another journey for him altogether. But now it's Han Allah. Remember the draft of the Prophet saw some of the blood running down his face and now these three men colored glass and Earth might have been taught are making their way to Medina not under any pressure
to embrace Islam.
had a little the low anima says that we entered into Medina Can you imagine being in Medina and just look up and you see how to downtown Austin earth not even just walking in casually into Medina, like what are you doing here?
But Subhanallah they clearly came with different intentions. And he said we walked to the Prophet sign somebody says it was the first day of suffer on the eighth year after hijra, he says, Phelan Tada and to Allah rasool Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when I looked at the Prophet SAW Salem, Salem to Allah He even knew who I gave salam to him, recognizing his prophethood As salam o ALLAH, Rasool Allah I think about the province I'm here in Catalan will either or the Allah and we're announcing As salam o Aniki rasool Allah. So he says, For the Arabia Salam be watching the Prophet slice, I'm responding to me with a big smile on his face, and the profit slice and I'm sad
Quraysh has given us its insights. I mean, at this point now what's left like who's here Khalid I'm gonna ask her it's not I've been told her.
And he said, I said to the prophets, I send them stuff really, rasool Allah seek forgiveness for me Oh messenger of Allah. Everything I did in Sudan and Sabina everything I did to prevent people from the Path of Allah Ya Allah so Allah ask Allah to forgive me.
And the prophets lie Selim embraces hired or the ALLAH and he says in Islam, your job uma cobbler Ohara Islam does away with everything before it for Mustafa Allahu alayhi salatu salam and then the Prophet size and I'm said, Oh ALLAH forgive Carlat from my pocket them around robbing us where it's not a mental health as Lemma and then amaranth and arithmetic, mental health, all became Muslim. And he said, Well, Allah He from that day the Prophet slicin Never gave anyone preference to me. It was like, it was like Bygones are bygones like the prophets, like some loved me as if I was his companion forever. Subhanallah like as if it had never happened as if no enmity ever happened
between us and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now I want to mention something here. That's very important. These three men, Paladin will lead honorable Ross and erythematous mental health, are considered by many scholars to be the last three people who have the status of the MaHA Giardina.
Why? Because the prophets lie, some said the Hijra barrel, fat, there is no more migration, meaning you don't get the status of being from them because you don't after photochemical, there's a decreased status there at that point. But these three men came to the Prophet SAW Salem, before America before the prophets why some marched back on Mecca, on their own volition. So there was the class, the robber, that desire to be with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and they earn the last three spots of the status of being Mahajan. Now Subhanallah How does he become the sort of Allah and I'll end with this in sha Allah to Allah with just a few more things, and then we'll show a call tonight
and we'll continue next week.
Hello, the hola on who knows one thing and one thing only war battle. So he's like, yes, Allah put me to work.
I'm ready to go. Like I don't need training hard. It is not the person who is going to sit in the masjid now and memorize the Quran. He's not the person who's going to go learn a Hadith from Abuja and Abu Musa. And you know, obviously a no, no, he's ready to go to war. The Battle of motor happens less than two weeks after that the Prophet sly Sonam sends out 3000 companions to go into fight on the outskirts now of where Jordan is. And you know, we actually have a documentary which you can watch about the Battle of MGTOW you can search them on our channel saw the martyrs
because I actually filmed their on site 1000s of miles away, where they have killed an ambassador of the Muslims, and they are now going to engage the Roman Empire with 3000 people. harlot goes out as a foot soldier, not as a general he's Legatus Allah put me to work, I'm ready to go. I don't need any training. I don't need anything to delay this kind of little the Allahu Anhu was sent out to the Battle of MATA and the commander of that army was a diviner Hadith of the Allahu Taala and, and the prophets like some gave the order that ze little the Allahu Anhu is the first commander. If zayde is killed, then Jaffa Radi Allahu Taala and who takes the banner? If Jaffa is killed, our beloved that
Allah takes the banner. And if those three are killed, then give the banner give the leadership to someone that you choose amongst you.
The prophets I'm standing on the member in Medina and he's watching the battle of to happen through divine revelation 1000s of miles away.
And this battle turned out to be 3000 against up to 100 150,000 Roman soldiers and their allies. You talk about being outnumbered.
And the prophets I seldom sees a though the Allahu Anhu fall in the battlefield, his son, and he his thought was salam, right?
And the prophets lie. Some says cookieless ate his voice is quivering.
And he said Jafra just took the banner.
And he said Jennifer has been killed.
And Abdullah just took the banner
of the love that Allah has been killed. And the prophets lie some
As weeping as he seen three of his most beloved companions pass away, his family pass away three of his most beloved companions. What ends up happening next is that the Muslims are looking around and saboteur Arkham Radi Allahu taala. And one of the seniors of the unsought, he picked up the banner. And he starts to call the people towards him. And then he goes up to her to dinner, what do you think about your heart and you just became Muslim like a few weeks ago? Your whole life is being an enemy to the Muslims. You've killed some of these people's parents and siblings. Right? There's obviously going to be a level of warming up that has to be here, right and Khalid understands that
and he's mocking assistance here for the sake of Allah, he's just there to support
and love it goes up to him and he tells him ever since a man take the banner
How did the whole the Allahu Anhu says no, no, no, I have to be you have greater right to it. I'm not gonna take it. He says you have so many more years in front of me in Islam. You You're one of the people of better like there is no reason why I started the new convert should take the banner. So thumb it says take it a you halogen Take it. Take the banner. And Khalid is hesitant not because he's afraid of the battle, but because he knows the feelings and the sentiments of the Muslims. I'm the new guy here. And tablet says to the rest of the unsavoury to the rest of the people there. Are you all gathered upon hotter than they say yes, unanimously.
So Subhanallah he takes the banner of the Muslims in this consequential battle. And then harder there'll be alone who goes to work? What does he do? How did little the Allahu Anhu creates a strategy because his entire he has a brain that far surpasses the strategies of using his sword colored attaches something to the animals, he creates a diversion tactic to where the Romans anticipate from different directions that the Muslim army is 10 or 15 times greater than its size. And so they go in they start to attack basically ghost armies. So how to devices in real time and entire strategy to spread his 3000 men out into different places and attack at different times of
the day. So the Romans are perplexed we're fighting desert Arabs here. We don't expect this. They're perplexed. And hardest are the Allahu Anhu plunges through the Byzantines kind of little the Allahu Anhu broke Nine Swords. He broke Nine Swords and pulled out his 10th and basically cut through the heart of that army and then gathered the Muslims out and then took them back to Medina and safety.
And the prophets lie Selim as he is speaking from the member and seeing what is happening.
He says after the hairdryer, well who are safe women so you
said Harlan just took the banner and harlot is a sword of the swords of Allah. So it was the first time the prophets lie some called him safe Allah who must rule the unsheathed sword of Allah subhanho wa taala. And the Muslims come back and harlot little the Allahu Anhu is now the hero of Medina. He is the hero of the Muslims imagine his mindset Subhanallah in this regard, and I want to end Subhan Allah on this note with two different things. The man does not go into the recitation of the Quran, the man does not go into the memorization. He immediately is thinking about how he can now use what Allah subhanaw taala gave him to benefit the Muslims and in fact almost all the Allah
Tada and who narrates or it's narrated that Armadyl the Allah and who mentioned that three people were withholding some of what they possessed. It been Jamil harden will lead an ambassador of the mattala and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam responded to our model the Allahu taala. And he says that as for harder than the lead for inner control the Mona holiday, he said, you're actually wrong in him. He said, everything that heard over the allotted time anyway, tell us everything that he's holding back. He's basically making weapons with it, he's preparing himself for battle, kinda doesn't total, you know, battle mindset. So how did this not withhold anything for the sake of Allah
subhanaw It's out of the man is not his father. He's not thinking that way. He's thinking how he can continue to support the mission that was now given to him from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and you only have like a handful of Hadith that are narrated from her little the Allahu Taala and one of them even above so the Allah and Homer says that he was eating in the house of my art main monuments and how to remember his art now. So he was eating in the house of Maimunah with the Prophet sly Salam, and they brought what was known as a lob. Lob is a desert lizard now lizards you think of the little tiny ones in Texas it's actually think about like a crocodile style. Big old desert lizard
it's different it's like a full animal
and kind of the law and who sees it and kind of doesn't know anything. So you notice the prophets lie some does not eat from it. So the prophets lie Selim is asked by how haram jasola Can I not eat from this and the Prophet sighs I'm said no, it's not haram. I just don't like it. so hard all the law
On horses, so I ate it That's heavy.
That's what you get from cars in terms of a hadith. You're not getting other than that. Other than that you have the greatest general in the history of Islam after the prophets lie Selim, and you have to stick with that. But I want to end with this from safe Allah and then we'll continue next week in sha Allah. Can you imagine how difficult it was for him?
To read all of the verses in the Quran about his father.
You talk about hard on the heart, how difficult it is. How many verses in the Quran are about his father.
This was tough. Now follow the law and who by the way only memorized like a few Sutras of the Quran until his death. He actually mentions on his deathbed he didn't have time he was focused 100% on battle and strategy would lead over 50 campaigns for the Muslims and for years he knows what he's doing.
Because all the law annual goes to Santa Mola be her data it's one of the most painful conversations you'll see here in this regard. And he says to Salem Salem is of course, a famous recite of the Quran the Prophet size and I mentioned from Holy Quran and Arbor I take the Quran from for people he mentioned Salem is one of them. And he goes to Salem and he says, Yeah, Salem filled Qurani MetroCard
is anything of the Quran left off? Like, how does this work?
Santa knows what he's about to ask him like, do I have to recite the verses about my dad? Do I have to know these? I don't know much of the Quran
says Sodom Radi Allahu Anhu knows where he's going with this. And Khalid insists he says recite to me the verses about my father. So I can repeat them. Why does he want to repeat them? Subhanallah look out. Look how dedicated he is to Islam. He's saying I will not have Eman like my faith is not going to be complete. Unless I can do this. So repeat them to me or say them to me and I will repeat them.
And he repeats those verses from certain death until settles Lee Hisako.
I will punish him as Pamela caught a little the allowed to analyze to do this with a quivering voice. But it's tough on him.
he dedicates his life to helping and supporting the prophets I summon his father was dedicated to fighting the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam but his class his sincerity and all the allow Tyler and who is going to show for the next few years in a way that is as beautiful as the strategies and the campaigns that he would devise to bring the two empires of the day to their knees. And this is how he becomes safe Allah, the sword of Allah may Allah Subhana Allah be pleased with how little the allowance Allah for all of his sacrifices for an Islam. May Allah subhanaw taala reward all of the companions of the messenger Alia salatu salam sent His peace and blessings upon our messenger Alia
salatu salam and his family. Allahu Amin, Aquila, Kali hada was tough Allah Euro commonly cited Mr. Moon Festival in a hole for Rahim Sharla and next week we will continue with the story of Hadith or solidar Muslim and Baraka, Nabina Muhammad, while early he also can be as Marian was salam alaikum
