Masha Allah, Allah bless
Smirnoff naheem Subhana Allah, today's a special a special episode.
And because the president is here, obviously,
but but also some kind of love just the
the episode of the Sierra or the chapter of the Sierra. That brings, I think so much to the hearts of the Muslims. Of course, all of the Sierra brings so much to our hearts, but there's the Battle of bed, and everything that surrounds the Battle of bed, to where even some how long we have not gotten to any part of the Quran thus far in our episodes where there is lengthy elaboration on bed. In fact, we see that Allah subhanaw taala, reminding when speaking about codes and some of the previous orders that we have covered, to remember, the days that Allah subhanaw taala gave you victory one time a villa while you were less in number, but a lots of penance, it gave you that victory through
your taqwa through your piety. And so the best people amongst the Sahaba, the best people amongst the people were the veterans of beddit. And the best of them alike and the best of the angels as debris, Ronnie histogram said, where the angels that fought on the day of bed, and this is a chapter that is rich with bedded and very, very detailed about some of the personal circumstances how it gives us some of the insight into some of the the CEOs, circumstances, right, some of the things that were taking place, in terms of just the pre battle during the battle after the battle, how things would be distributed, so on and so forth. But then it also gives us a window into the death
of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and into the hearts of the companions, as they were preparing themselves for the Battle of bed. And so this does cover a certain hour off and certain unfair,
and the latter part of Switzer off and then it goes into sort of Uncharted and the year of revelation of an unfair is very clear. It is the second year after Hitler and his after bed that are so after bed that the second year after hedgerow means after the first Ramadan of the Muslims as well because as we said, but there was spot in normal bond, the first normal Dawn of the Muslims Subhan Allah they took part in the Battle of bed, and it starts off with the reason why we don't have much dispute on the period of revelation here is because the very first verse is yes, aluna Garnett and father they asked you concerning the spoils of war and Allah subhanaw taala says quoted
in family law he will also say that the spoils belong to Allah and the messenger sallallahu it was send them FETs up Allah Housley whoa that veiny comb wealthy or Allah or pseudo enquanto meaning and so be mindful of Allah subhanaw taala and set right the things between you and obey Allah and His Messenger sallallahu wasallam if you are true believers, some of the scholars
As mentioned, the benefit here that the typical word for spoils is actually an atom, vanilla. But in the Arabic language that is the typical word for spoils of an atom, but Allah subhanaw taala uses the word and fal, which means extra. And some of the scholars say that that is a sign that you are not there for the spoils of war, you were there for Allah and His Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and so anything that might come, that is extra of this world is merely extra and not to become a focus in and of itself. And this came as a result of some of the conversations because this is the first battle even though it wasn't a planned battle, right? This was the first battle that
the Muslims had to fight, and they did not want to fight as Allah subhana wa tada says that it was written for you fighting was prescribed for you, well, who according to that come and you hate it to fight, but this is the first time they have to go out and battle. And now as the spoils are there, there is a discussion and dispute about who will get the spoils of war, what are the rules that they're going to abide by in terms of the distribution, and Subhanallah it is, you know, just immediately resolved with everything we spoke about, especially in swithun Isa, that it's out there Allah How else will you follow Allah and the messenger sallallahu Sallam that it's going to start
and stop with what the messenger sallallahu wasallam decides that is going to be the discipline by which you abide. And in that you're going to find goodness, right in that you're going to find justice, and you're going to find goodness from the messenger so long, why he was so dumb, and it will do away with your disputes. And subpanel I think one of the main, you know, benefits to extract from this is that the Battle of hoods
was lost, for the reason that 40 archers disobeyed the profits alliance that I'm in came down. Why? Because they saw that the battle had been done, that the Muslims had completed the battle that they had already attained victory, and they were afraid that they would miss out on the spoils of war. And so they came down thinking that it was done and Subhanallah that was the at least the technical reason, right? Of course, we know that there are larger spirit spiritual reasons, the you know, Paramount of them is disobeying the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam in that he told them to keep their stations, but it was the spoils of war right which is you know, truly, somehow love the
dunya we comparison, the worldly and material comparison to what truly motivated these people which was the love of Allah subhanaw taala and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So we go to then verse number nine, and this is such a beautiful part because it gives us insight into the dirt out of the profits lights, um, you know, typically, you see the Doom of the other prophets represented in the plan. But here Allah Subhana Allah mentions in verse nine is test to the fool and Allah confessed the job at any moment do can be alphanumeric, you can model the model defeat that and recall when you implored your Lord for help, and he responded to speaking to the messenger salallahu
alayhi wa sallam, I will indeed reinforce you Oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with 1000 angels motor defeat meaning followed by another host of angels and we'll talk about what that means when the nine tada and this refers to the night before that. The prophet SAW the long lining he was seldom is in his atish in the tent that's been constructed for him. So Allah harness and I'm looking out to what is going to be the battlefield the night before. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam stands up and he raises his hands. I know his sloths was Salaam. And he calls out to Allah subhana wa tada Allahumma ainoa attorney. Oh Allah, I'm imploring you for that which you've promised me
along the edges Mauer attorney Oh Allah fulfill that what you have promised me Allah in the cabbie here is lava in Adelaide, Islam for tournament fill all the evidence, Oh Allah, if this group of people are killed from the people of Islam, then you will not be worshipped on this earth. Oh ALLAH says Allah the concern of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in five? Is the children worshipping Allah. The concern in hood afterwards is that Oh Allah, Allah feduni call me for no malaria and when they don't know any better, Oh Allah, perhaps some of them will come into the knowledge of faith and they will worship you. Yeah, Allah. And so the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is not thinking about defeat in
the in the material sense or a legacy of battle the way that those people on the other side are thinking about their memory and their history and their legacy and are motivated by very tribalistic themes. The profit slice on them is raising his hands and saying, Oh Allah, I want you to be worshipped on this earth. And I don't want this group of people to be killed because if they are killed, then who's going to worship you on this earth? Oh Allah. And so the Prophet slice Allah continues to raise his hands had snuck up, up we read that Whoo hoo, some Allah
He was silent until his his his his cloak fell off of his shoulder it's a law to set up so you can imagine his hands way up into the sky as Pamela were,
you know, just passing you know only an episode removed from the profit slice I'm in battle. So this is the key ingredient his do and his heart that tahu Abubakar, so I will back it will be a lot and who picks up his cloak, and I will record all the law and what comes behind the profits of the law and he was seldom an executor or the law of town and who says to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah subhana wa tada will surely fulfill his promise to a messenger of Allah we know we know that Allah will fulfill his promise to you, O Messenger of Allah. And so as a result of that Allah subhana wa tada revealed this verse and unfold, verse number nine. And the way that as the
moment has over him, Allah narrates from a group of the Sahaba Allah first sent 1000 angels, and then he increased them with 1000 angels behind them, and then increase them with 1000 angels behind them until they became 3000. And then Allah subhanaw taala sent another 2000 angels until they became 5000 angels that came to fight alongside the believers. Another benefit that the scholars mentioned here is that the angels only fought in rubbish, you know, we find all the narrations of the angels fighting in bed. And, you know, fighting the enemies to where the enemy is perceived these forces that were taking them out. So Pamela, and the believers saw the help of the
manaakitanga transpiring in front of them so the angels were always present with the prophets of Allah Islam and protecting the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam they were always present but in the Battle of bedded pata Lu, they actually went forth and they fought alongside the believers and that's why you breed it his Salaam, told the Prophet slicin them that they are considered the best amongst us, the angels have bedded the way that the Sahaba who fought in bed that are considered the best amongst you, but then the last panel tada continues, and Allah subhanaw taala, you know, lends us, you know, into another, or lends us the information of another episode of
The sila that that's probably not as well known in bed that from the favors of bed that Allah subhanaw taala mentions that when a new us when drowsiness overcame you, giving you a sense of peace and security, I'm gonna literally You know, it gave you a sense of security, you know, when you sleep tight because you feel at ease, spent a lot you know, imagine how hard it would be to sleep and feel tranquility, the night before. The night before about a like bed where you're so outnumbered. By the other side, they have all they have their troops, they have all of their animals, they have their weapons of war, you are outnumbered and you don't even have animals to
write on to fight back against them. But a lot of what's out I mentioned what university to Annie camino, sama, Eman neotel Hera combi, he will use our income register ridges a shape on that Allah subhana wa tada sat down rain upon you from the sky that he may purify, purify you with it, and remove from you the the pollution of the shape bar, what he ought to be Florida for Ruby calm and so that Allah subhanaw taala would strengthen your hearts will you be to be healed up down and the last parent it would plant your feet firmly what this is referring to is that the night before bed that Allah subhanaw taala stripped down a lot of rain upon them. And the Muslims occupied the favorable
position in Bedford, which was that they got to the wells of the first and the rain that came down upon them, gave them a sense of peace, it filled up their reservoirs, they had all of their water that they needed for war that they were able to use in their tents, they were on the upper part of the valley. So the rain did not drown them, but instead it was a beneficial rain. It also allowed them to to pitch their tents quickly and to plant their tents, the grounds quicker and more firm. Because they had the you know wetter surface to be able to do so asked for quite the same rain because they were in the lower Valley completely messed them up. Right It made the surface in the
lower Valley very difficult for them to traverse. It ruins some of their tents, it ruins some of their equipment and it put them in an unfavorable position. And so the Muslims you know, so hello at such peace, seeing the way that Allah subhanaw taala was setting them up and the way that they were able to move forward. Verse 17, Allah subhanaw taala mentions well Manuel may tell you that I need to and I can allow Rama and you did not throw a messenger of Allah when you threw but rather it was a loss of control time that through the sand. This is according to an ambassador the allot of time a very beautiful narration that the prophets lie some of them prior to the battle as it was about to
The profit slice and I'm sought that reinforcement and do at from Allah subhana wa tada gibreel salaam came to the prophet SAW the line somebody told the Prophet slice me out a little Allah pick up some dirt from the ground. And then he told the Prophet, slice them yada Silla, throw it forward, throw it in the direction of the army. So the Prophet slicin picked up some dirt and he threw it in their direction. And not a single person from the opposing side was not struck in their eyes by the dirt coming from the hand of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So this was another sign. So Pamela of the reinforcement that had come from Allah, finally, with Kuru verse 26, and then I'll end off here
with Guru is antem Colleen and Mustafa iPhone are filled out to her phone and yet to her Topher kimonos for our karma yoga can be Nasri. He was Dakar. caminata eva Tina, Allah contest Quran and recall when you were few in number, you were deemed weak and oppressed in the land, you feared that the people would would do away with you than Allah provided you refuge, then Allah strengthen you With his help. And then Allah provided you with sustenance with all that is good, so that you may be amongst the grateful. And this is a message Subhanallah that the Sahaba could always reflect back on about how Allah subhanaw taala supported them. But it's also a message for the Muslims to always be
able to look back on how many times was Islam supposed to and and I put that in quotation marks because quotes with my hands at least because we know that Allah subhanaw taala had destined with okatee healthcare if you don't, even if the disbelievers hated it, that it wouldn't be victorious. But how many times was the profit slice I'm outnumbered and surrounded. And it seemed like this habit we're going to be massacred, but Allah subhanaw taala made a way out for them. And that was a sign that success comes to the Sahaba that success comes from the types of hearts and do as you had invented. And you should always lean back on that for the rest of your journey in this earth as
companions of the Prophet slicin and it's a message to the oma by extension to go back to that and Allah subhanaw taala will always give us victory when our hearts are in the right place when our direction is unified and sourced from the messenger sallallahu wasallam. And moving forward with that conviction that Allah subhanho wa Taala will surely support us no matter what our circumstances are so long as we are faithful to him and their last parent I support them still laughing support but we can the oppressed from our oma wherever they are alumna I mean last pants I support all of those who are weak and oppressed all of those who are being taken advantage of and harmed and
exploited by lost parents I support them Allah Ameen inshallah tada I will invite first Sheikh Hassan and Sheikh Abdullah to share their commentary tada and to take us to the next chapter.
Salaam icon for peace You have done well for this shift my friend this
is not doable. I started before you let's say either Heather obatala tiamo exactly she's
one or some of the lots Robbie
hamdulillah salat wa salam on Abdullah mousseline sido Hammad, while any US military been upon hearing rubbish off the Saudi us nearly every one of them is Enya. popoli a beautiful ship former and I love the how you started. The reason the surah was relieved, as you mentioned, is very illuminating. The Battle of bed is a turning point. It's a victory. It's but this was revealed according to the companions, or whether massaman tells us in a narration, females have
Nazareth sort of painted a phenotype as Anna Hill infinite was at home.
And as our law firm in a Dina wotja, Allah who
he says, will be alone in us, the people of bedros great people, that the surah was revealed because something happened that or n has to has to intervene. This is not going to this is measured. And he says it's not because of anything in the bathroom. It was after the battle after after things were good. After we were victorious, after we had what we love, but something happened. When we saw the war booty we started disputing it. And one can imagine the scenario. I was the one that took it, but I was the one that's defending the prophets, Allah, but I was the one that was facing that. And he says something was said at three o'clock. And our manners regarding the dispute was not on par. And
here, we should think of the companions. It's not our standard. But there they were not on the top of manners. That's the problem of the disputed that's what happened. And when that happened, as you mentioned, he was what was revealed and the very first line in this war and it's very interesting
Yes aluna can even fail as you mentioned, she the ask you regarding the spoils or for those are those are extra things they forgot what happened. They forgot. Those are extra over over and above. And then what Allah says cool and finally lady with an awesome everything, you all have it it starts like that belongs to Allah and His Messenger reminds me sometimes Yanni will Elaine methyl Allah sometimes when you do something good for your kids have two children, you take them somewhere, I don't know it important. And you do so many things that at the end of the day you give you give one a lollipop or something or some calculating and cooling. So is that what you're doing? You're going
to forget everything and fight over that candy. If I if I if I'm a loving Dad, what would I do?
I'll take back it gave it back to me. It's not worth it. Did you forget Are you going to spoil the whole day because it's candy. It's just
what are you fighting over?
And we also plan on identity issues, as you mentioned a lot reminded
a lot. You are the believers. You're the one that sila La Ilaha. Mohammed Rasul Allah, I helped you with angels. Look what happened. And at the end of the day, you're going to be fighting over this. This is nothing. The interesting part my reflection, is where's the answer? The answer to the first versus aluna canningvale came in verse number 41 1/5, belongs to the prophets of Allah the ruling came, what Allah did not just answer the question, he is the ruling. He address the cause of that.
You can be disputing regarding this. As you mentioned, the things that are loaded You are the people of bedroom Look what Allah gave you. Look at the angels that came to help you and will lie as you might take point from this is many of us nowadays, we forget we are the people of
Muhammad Rasul Allah. This is the tongue that says Shangri La, how can I say something back to my brother? The message it the houses of Allah? How can we fight over them? And when we do so Allah kicks
only to teach us a lesson then he gives it back.
All of that
Mashallah jackal is a very, very numerous points very, very important for us to reflect over. And that's what I love about Islam. And I love about the methodology of the Quran is that, you know, we weren't we worship belong in his terms and not on our so when he addresses something, he addresses it in the best way via the Prophet sallallahu. It was some of them. And as you mentioned, the answer to the question didn't come until me I add later, because it was about deep It was about,
you know, addressing the manners, and rectifying the manners of the people in regards to what he has given them. And I love the analogy that you did with the sweets and children, and Subhanallah, we just have to be analogous for each and every individual adults, what is our candy in our life that causes us to neglect our manners and neglect the rights of others. And Subhanallah also, you know, how we see it starts from the heart, you know, the promise the line, there was some of them, he said, Allah and then food just as the model, he said, there is another piece of flesh in the body, that sort of has a sort of hell just to do kulu. And if it is rectified, and the rest of the body is
rectified. And if it is bad, then the rest of the body is bad. And we're here. Is it not the heart, a rhetorical question to show that we have to start with the heart, that is where it starts. And you know, when these things are the dunya as we talked about yesterday, and the dunya, and in this life in this worldly life and being mesmerized and diverted by it and hacking with the cathode, you have been diverted by gathering things in abundance Subhanallah gathering the tangible things in abundance of which Allah has given you only as a test to see how are you going to use it? Are you going to look at it? Are you going to look at it as an eye of Allah as a sign of Allah and use it in
that which is good? Or are you going to want to control it, steal it, if you have it, do not, you know, don't give it away if need be to those that are in need. And that which leads to or, you know, having a sign of being bad meant having bad manners and not acting in a way that is consistent with Islam. That is something that Mashallah Jazakallah head on mentioning that methodology of, you know, working on the heart first, before answering the question, and this is important also,
for those of us that ask questions, and so while I'm on one time, I was in the huddle, and
I was listening, you know, and in Rome, Milan, and, and hij you know, walking in the Harlem and I hear, you know, some of those few of you know, I'm doing my sebadoh boubakeur design at hamartia tt and you know, so hey, Ben in this issue, they're, they're sitting in their chairs and people are asking the same question.
In every single year, can you imagine being asked the same question every single year? Well, that takes a level of patience and tough work.
Just think about it, you know, 40 years, you're in the hot I'm teaching. And people ask the same question, you know, so and it's not to ridicule people to ask the question, because there will always be people that have that question. But sometimes, when you ask a question, it's important to know that the answer may not come to you immediately, because the person being question may have enough experience to give you that which softens the heart instead of just giving you that answer. Right? Because it could just be something effect. Do I do this? Do yes, I do that. But then sometimes a pro saw somebody even, you know, when he was asked the question about when is this? What
was his answer at that tele? Have you prepared for it? Right to make you ponder and think, okay, yes, I can just from an action of just just doing the action, but is my heart ready to do this? So does that go help on that method methodology. So I'll use the next two minutes of Sharla, to talk about the verse that I have. And it's in chapter number seven, verse 199. And this is a this is the verse that many scholars say, this is the most comprehensive verse in regards to mchattie Mu a flock, in regards to noble character.
And that is where Allah subhanho wa data says, if there are other than there is not a gene called alpha, what motivated odfi were under the jacquelene. He says to to be those that are forgiving, holding the alpha, what motivated UrFi, and to be those that order the good and join what is good, and turn away from the ignorance. So it's three things, three things that Immanuel Kant's upon law, he mentions here, that only good can result from good that when you do these three things, all of these are good actions of the human being. And good can only result from that even if we see what we may perceive as bad or evil, as a result of doing one of these things, that one of these three
things and know that it is, is good. And then he also mentions that Subhanallah, that once one has these three, they will be successful. And that is what is important in regards to our dealings with people, that it's not going to be good at all times your own family members, for those of you that may, you know, come to the faith and come to the realization there have been some epiphany that you want to come back to Allah, you want to come back to God, you want to try to be a better person within that process. Remember, these three guidelines holding off what is the first thing is to pardon people take the bigger road, you know, if there's an argument, you have an argument with
somebody, and you still feel that you're right, you know, in the argument, you know, when you're texting, you're going back and forth on social media, and it's an argument in the comments. You say, Okay, I'm done. Just like oh, okay, middle our words you end it with a dog and inshallah be sincere in that door. You know that Joseph the lucky the duck hair really means May Allah reward you and not something that indirectly implies something else. Right? We have apple and one of the names of Allah. Allah is a Who is the one that pardons you that overlooks something that you have done, and that is a huge, it's a jihad, enough's, but it's something that is beloved and praiseworthy. And if
we notice here, Allah subhanaw taala uses the imperative verb to show the importance of it. And in Islamic law, when there's an imperative verb it necessitates or implies obligation, unless there is another proof that brings it down to the level of recommendation. So here it is, from the adapt it is from the manners of the human being the Muslim, the human being, is to be a person that Parton's people, man I found in this. The second thing is what motivated or fluffy. That does not mean, you know, he's saying here to enjoying the good, even though you may pardon people from what they may be doing, or they may have a certain way that they come in the masjid or the way that they talk to you,
you know, and the way that they act with you pardon them, because we have to understand people are at different levels. And you have to be patient and part of the people. How many times has someone been patient with you? And you you look years down the line like Wow, he was so patient with me know that person was so patient with me. Or you were patient with someone and they come to you years later? And they say, Well, I appreciate you could have really called me out. But you were patient with me and I appreciate that I didn't forget that. Or I forgot it and I remembered years later that you were the one you were the only one that tolerated me You were the only one that pulled me to the
side Allah to Allah saying what more or fee and to call to that which is good in the earth is that which is known amongst the people that the are called a selima that the intellect that is sound the ones that are not totally diverted, when it comes to understanding the right and the wrong and trying to enable this to do so. But we understand that which is Maradona is that which is the creator has come with from
The adapted the manners of Islam. So last month Allah says order that which is my roof. And the third thing is, well I know Jackie Nene and turn away from those that are ignorant. What is interesting here is that Subhanallah you may pardon a person and then remind them of that which is good. And their response could be something that is objective of ignorance of, of you know vulgarity. But then at that time, but less what that says, I read, I'm home,
you want to send an email a response to someone, don't press the send button, just leave it just be quiet. Sometimes you may feel that you may have to fast from your electric fast from social media, you know, and if this is what helps you and your adapt to fast from it. And that which could possibly elicit bad manners or elicit a response that you'll regret. Because once you once you press send, or once you say something, that person is going to remember, your wife is going to remember, your son is going to remember it, your grandparents are going to remember it when you said that word years ago. But in, you know, if they may have had some manners that are not befitting, it's very
important that you take the higher road to be a better to be a person that can alleviate the situation by not saying anything, sometimes when you're silent Subhanallah that is treatment that makes the person think because usually you would speak and you would you respond. But if you just saw that and you smile, or you turn away, or you don't respond online, you don't press that button, you don't give a bad, you know, forgot to call them is signed with the hagfish are no bad, a bad sign to a person that has an effect on a person, when you are quiet and silent, in response to ignorance, that has a huge effect whether that person says something or not, it has a huge effect.
And this is from Allah subhanho wa Taala that he gives us three, these three manners of these two methods of dealing with people quickly the alpha part and the people overlook their faults. What motivated roughy in order that which is good, what are uninjured II mean, and turn away from those that are ignorant. This is from the macadam of a flock and as a scholar, as mentioned, as I mentioned before, this is a very comprehensive method of having the manners of a mindful Person of the Motoki. May Allah subhanaw taala make this from me.
Zachary Walker from the beautiful bark multicam show Hassan problem.
Over swing, she's like, I would like to hear your comments, requests, please.
My you know, somehow the only thing I really could could think about as you were talking about the Sahaba would wanna like it him in the way that they may not be pleased with them the way that they felt after bed did and I was just thinking about what Shaykh Abdullah just mentioned, and the Sahaba are, the Sahaba are beyond our scope, you know, in the sense that they are our stars, and then there are ranks amongst the Sahaba and the people of bed that are the greatest of the of this will happen. And, you know, when you're thinking about the companions of the Prophet, slice alum, I think about how many times like if I was one of those people who I felt like was being addressed by that verse,
you know, who was who was arguing about the spoils of war? Or if I was one of those people who was being admonished after a hug, or one of those people, you know, that was was being admonished after any of the battles of the prophets isomer if I was one of the Sahaba, from certain hoogenraad, right, who was raising their voice in the presence of the messenger, so Elias and I'm like, how do you recover from that? And the fact that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu aarnio, some always put people at ease, like, and the revelation while while the degree of admonishments is to the degree of what was done, like when we talked about, we mentioned that it was not the hypocrites that fled the
Battle of because the hypocrites had already turned back before or had even started, these were Sahaba that were caught in, you know, in a certain moment, right?
So the degree of admonishment matches the degree of what was done, but like there's always a way back, so Pamela, there's always a, and then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam always manifest that and a lot of grace to those companions. And I mean, we can find stories of some of the Sahaba who thought they were doomed for various reasons, but the poor on and the way the prophets lysozyme then acts upon those dictates from the poor and always offers a path back for them. And I think about one person, I can't help but think about it now, because we cover the story of the man who, who stoled the armor from Ansari and then hit it with a Jewish man in Medina to try to get the Jewish man in
trouble and then, you know, himself, absolve himself of stuff. And then after the revelation came down regarding him, what did he do? He went to Mecca and joined the mushrikeen and fought against the prophets like some out of his anger for getting caught and basically, that's how I even you know, like, like every single one of these people, these these these people around the messenger, so a lot of them
and I only say
These people because I'm including the hypocrites, otherwise, I would never refer to the Sahaba as these people would want to lay it all of the people like, literally human beings around the messengers otherwise on we're just given so many chances Subhana Allah to either expiate or continue to elevate. And the companions of course may Allah be pleased with them chose the the, the route of continuing to get higher and higher and higher by acting in accordance with that. So it's just a beautiful story altogether when I think about the way that these ions are being placed of redemption and elevation, redemption, elevation, redemption, Elevation for the Sahaba until they became the
luminaries that we look to today. My last point, I'd be pleased with them all.
So paddleshift so Hello, I had this Heidi, and I was debating should I say it or not, and I think after your reflection, it's perfect. It's
narrated by Sadiq Malik. again after the Battle of better we see the companions and he went to the prophet SAW Allah and he was so lymphedema sort of law.
Chef, any local young women emotionally keen to heavily have a safe or profitable lot the day this day, it soothes my heart Finally, those people that were oppressing us for years and years and years, I see a day that will victorious and then he asked for one simple thing. Please grant me this sold again a spoiler for just I fought so hard today. Let me keep. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam person had a safe place to live and the heaven. This soul belongs neither to you know, to me, leave it right there.
And he says in this narration, he says I put the sword.
He weighs immediately. But as he's walking, he said a thought came to my head. Lana, we have the other safe men that men led me to believe in a Perhaps he's going to give it to someone else who didn't fight as hard, you know, just that. And then all of a sudden someone calls him from behind the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is calling you back. And he says, hold Enza Hello vishay. NZ, let's analyze it. When I heard that I said, Allah revealed something regarding me What have I done, just because of the thought. And then he goes back, I mean, it's worth it. And that is revealed. And we see Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, I commanded you to put the sort of here when
it was neither mine or yours. But now after the ruling is given that I have 1/5 of this points. And this sort of sort of belongs to me here you can have it taken back.
A lot when we respond to Allah and His messenger. When we're willing to obey even when we wish something is in my chest and I don't like it. It's always good.
And perhaps, I don't know, should I go with my Versace who'd like to publish it, no one will be upset. We want to hear you.
So it ties into the verse that I actually one of the verses I wanted to reflect on today. before the Battle of better Something happened also that Allah addresses. When they went out. They weren't supposed to be going for a fight with the machete. They were supposed to be going for a caravan. It was an easy thing. It's a caravan after all the presidents and they're going to raid that caravan take the property back and it was easy. But then on the way as we all know from the zero things change. And all of a sudden I was Abu Sufyan you know sends to Mecca
and the disbelievers gather and all me and now they have one of two situations. Either they can go for the caravan, which is easy, and they can take the property back or they will go and have to face the army. That's three times their size. And Allah subhanaw taala mentions in the Quran, this verse, where is he? I do come to LA after party patania and what we're doing in Nevada at show casita kulula con, where you read the wahoo and you have an article in it, where the audience can feel it. A lot reminds them, remember how inside of you, you and all of us are like this, we want that which is easy. We always ask for ease. Nobody wants difficulty. Nobody wants a convention. Nobody wants a
confrontation. And they do they just like if we can just go to the caravan. We're not equipped to face an army three sides like ours that's difficult. And the here also panatela says what you were promised that one of both will be yours. And inside you wanted the easy one liner that is shocking the one that has no thorns, that is easy to take. But by reflection is very interesting. What would have happened if Allah subhanaw taala granted them the rush. I can do that you want these go. You go for the caravan. hamdulillah it's very easy. You take your property back you go back home with some sports and everybody's happy. What Allah
I wanted something as Allah wanted you to base that on. Because Allah wants to give you more than the kind of Allah wanted to make you the people of Allah wanted to make you the people on which a hawk is going to show on the hands. There is horses out there, but Allah speaking you, and he wants to grant you that favor, to show you all the miracles that you will be the people that Allah help the people that angels filled with what Allah wants to give you. But in the beginning, you were reluctant, he didn't want to do it. But because you complied, and you went with it. Even inside it was difficult. Look what happened. Not only Allah gave them some points, but they become a little
bit. They got the fevers of almost a panel that they got to see miracles with their own eyes, they got to be the role model, the rank of the companions that are in bed better, so high. Allah wanted to give you this and my reflection, sometimes that happened to us today, especially those of us living in the West. We want things to be peaceful, we are peaceful Muslims. We want just to make easy now how do we learn? We always ask for ease. But sometimes there is a thorny path, a path that's difficult, and we don't want it But will we? Will we be the generation that will face a confrontation that we never want and difficulty? Will we be the generation that Allah will choose to
bring hot truth on our hands? Will we be the generation that changes the world's view on Islam and whom Hamas Allah is a challenge? It's difficult, there are those that are oppose us. That will we will we comply? Will we say somehow
or we will choose not to? And I finished therefore with the verse Yeah, your livina ml is steady will delay he will euro soul, either the higher come lemma he come or you have attained faith, respond, respond. It's about responding to Allah and His Messenger, when he invites is inviting you to that which will bring your life
it's not always a response to our panel, his energy. And that's what we worry about will alert response will only respond when How am I responding to him? How am I responding to him and he was asking please respond. I only want to give you that which is good. Allah gives us life, even in difficult situations, even in things that we internally don't want. I ask Allah to make us among the people like the companions of bed that says me Hello. And that Allah will therefore use us to be the generation that changes the view of the world. The Homer hematoma audience is an ask Allah subhanaw taala specifically producing armor for your program this year. May Allah make it a key program to
transform the image of Mohammed Salalah alayhi wasallam in the minds of people, as we say what are on your
own, there are people that look at the profits on the lines and they don't see. They don't see his beauty. His character is an ask Allah to make your program the light by which it shines on the beautiful character of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam that everybody who hears it would see his beauty.
Does that cool luggage
And last patch, I bless you, I mean to all of your drawers. And the only thing I'll say just before I share just a brief reflection on that is our it's our program. So many people did so much. You know for to support this mission. So many lost parents accept that on behalf of the entire team at yaqeen. The people that work day and night
and mail us plans to reward everyone who has supported supported us and that male us pants and allow us all to be able ambassadors of the profits of the law and he must have them. I mean, just one thing I couldn't help and also it'll be my last thought on the beautiful reflection you shared Jeff, the greatest bounty is what we seek in Milan will feel automatic Adam and Adam behave that they will be forgiven whoever facile Milan with the amount of nasty side faith and accountability will be forgiven for all of their previous sense. The people of bed that had a unique bounty that Allah gave them. And that was what the prophets lie some of them said that they are forgiven for their past and
their future since I mean imagine being alive and you're still in the early days of Islam and you've been told that you are forgiven for all of your sins to come as well. But you know how these people live the rest of their lives in Chicago in gratitude, you know from the lowest talking about this a few episodes ago.
You know, a fella corner I've done shakoora shall not be a grateful servant. That was the province little licensed answer of how he continued to pray at night with gratitude even though he was forgiven for
All of his sins, previous and future, and the people of bedroom, you know what they did Subhanallah all of them went on to become the veterans of every other battle that they live to see. And they continue to serve alongside the profits of the lives of them. I mean, at that point, like if you were told that you are forgiven for your previous and future sins, you know, okay, you know, I'm done then right. But Pamela, they, they continued to be the most loyal supporters of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and the greatest of the greatest, the veterans have better, molest parents, I'd be pleased with them all, in my last panel data, forgive all of our sins as well. And may Allah
subhanaw taala allow us to attain lofty stations until we are joined with our Habib's Allah, Allah and he was done with our beloved one. With the prophets and the righteous ones, the truthful ones, the martyrs in the highest level of effort of those that are not alone, I mean, from the will leave your child if you want to share any any last thought on the beautiful words that she just shared. Michelle, just just two things to kind of, like how you mentioned, you know, the the eye surgeon who didn't have a liver solely an eye to respond to a loss of profit Allah and as messenger, we dare to call you to that which brings you life. And he said something very important. And I think this
should be something that we ask ourselves, right before we make our do our maker, do I but it's something is another practical technique for us to ask ourselves, you know, I want a lot to respond to me, but have I responded to Allah subhanaw taala you will have I responded to his call, you know, in my life, because I may be calling on him when I need something which is fine, which is what he wants from you, which is what he demands from us is to call on Him, because He is the one that has the ultimate power and authority Mashallah. But is it? Are we responding to his call? Are we responding to the message that He has given us, you know, this is what is very, very important and
incumbent upon us as well, that we respond to that call it his and also the hadith of modern jevelin when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was calling on why the devil and he told him
he told him that to worship Allah subhanaw taala that the rights of them upon Allah is to
to not go into Hellfire if they don't worship you know worship others and Allah in the eyes of Benjamin was so happy said fllo Bashir to nasty so let's assume for your attack you don't congratulate them really they will become lazy so it's important for us to remember this in regards to our actions and ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive us if any of our shortcomings inshallah so that's the message that I want to bring
is that coefficient Hassan, will you join us inshallah tada again in the future? Anytime?
Anytime, my honor.

Although the topic of mental health has received a good bit of interest lately, there are still some people who really don't believe in the topic of mental health at all. Some Muslims say that mental health issues are a Western construct, and they don't really apply to them. Others say all I need a strong faith and others might say the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam never saw therapist, why should I and what they may not realize is that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not only acknowledged and addressed psychological challenges, but that he himself laid the very front groundwork for generations of Muslim scholars after him to discover, classify, diagnose, and even
treat mental health conditions.
