I welcome you all to Episode Seven of season four

00:01:14--> 00:02:07

blast from the past zero in the 21st century, I pray, you are all doing phenomenally well. And I pray you had a chance to read up on the portion of the Battle of the Confederates that we discussed yesterday and took out some time to ponder over the reality of that event and also ponder over our life circumstances and how we can be inspired from these moments from the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. As promised brothers and sisters in Islam today insha Allah, we will be continuing with part two of this lesson pertaining to the Battle of the Confederates, or the Battle of 100. And yesterday, we stopped at the point whereby the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he

00:02:07--> 00:02:38

had confirmed information that this army of 10,000 men were an army of 10,000 were heading towards him. They consisted of balloon, Novell, the Quraysh, the auto Fund and the allies of the auto fund. And as we discussed yesterday, different groups are motivated for different reasons a group was motivated due to revenge a group was motivated duty enmity, and another group was motivated due to the chance to earn some pay some financial standing.

00:02:39--> 00:02:54

They were interested in portions of the harvest of Medina. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brought his companions together, and he engaged them in the process of Shura, and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as a result of assura

00:02:56--> 00:03:29

was presented with the idea of digging the trench. And as I said, towards the end of yesterday's episode, brothers and sisters in Islam, we're talking about something new to the Arabs, we're talking about a situation whereby they don't even have the tools they don't have the expertise, they don't have the know how they don't even have experience in the sense that they have an idea of how long this will take. They know that the army is less than a week away from arriving, and it's an army like the other it's a test like no other. No doubt the numbers are unprecedented.

00:03:31--> 00:04:14

But nonetheless, Allah subhanho wa Taala he blessed the believers to hear the voice of Solomon and faricy and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam concluded the Shura sitting with this being the most prominent idea since the mahadji. rune and ansara had nothing more to offer. A Memoir KD is a great Imam, of the Sierra of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he states that without wasting any time, I mean, if you read his Arabic, you get the impression that it was panela You know, when you read the Arabic and you understand the context, it gives you insights into the leadership qualities of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Well, you know, he had this, this

00:04:14--> 00:04:24

what they call an ASTM, while hasm wants to shoot a process was done. He had this ability to latch on to what would be the way forward quickly and then immediately, he would,

00:04:26--> 00:04:49

he would act on it. And we spoke about this I recall in season one, about leadership and it's not about taking just pure risk. It's about calculated risk, but what also is not advisable. And what is not incorrigible is this whole concept of having a meeting and then needing to have another meeting to discuss the last meeting, and then another meeting to discuss the last meeting, and this can really

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

can derail certain people. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala has created us with different character types and certain character types can only

00:05:00--> 00:05:35

manage to a certain extent, the whole concept of uncertainty that every time a meeting happens and solutions are presented, it's it's it's seen as being uncertain and then another meeting is required to try and mitigate, you know, the concept of the uncertainty then after that another meeting to further mitigate the concept of the uncertainty, we don't see this with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam every expedition thus far after he came to Medina, even how he bought machete gnabry and how we, you know, the whole discussion took place, we discussed this in season two and how he took the money from Abubakar Allah and presented it to the orphans and then the whole

00:05:37--> 00:06:10

upscaling of the land and the building of the masjid and so on and so forth. And how he made a decision. So Allah Allah, he was telling not to build his own house before the masjid was built, and where he would settle Subhana Allah is just phenomenal leadership ability. So the same thing we see here, it's not perfect, it's consistent with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he did Shura, he understood what was possible from the people he had with him. And this is about understanding resources that at the end of the day, when you bring people together for mutual consultation, and their capacity is reached, and that is the capacity of the solutions that you can have the module

00:06:10--> 00:06:49

had no answer, the answer had no answer. But then there was this answer of this idea of the trench. Now, despite all the uncertainty around it, that was the only formidable idea presented, what's left is to act and put your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So again, coming to the narrative by remember what he did when you see him, you know, the Arabic He uses in presenting and trying to paint a picture in trying to create an image in our minds of how the situation was and how the gathering was and how the discussion happened. He says immediately, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam set out on his horse, he picked companions, and he went out to do what to look for an ideal

00:06:49--> 00:07:29

place to dig the trench. Look at this brothers and sisters in Islam. It wasn't a case of Oh, but we don't have wheelbarrows. Oh, but we don't have spades. We don't have enough pigs. What are we going to do about this? But are you sure the profit center has this this was the end of it, the shorter process ended, what was left was to run the diligence in terms of the idea at hand. So he's immediately taking it on, there's no time to waste. The Army's is edging an etching closer to Medina with every second that takes he goes out to look for the ideal place to dig the trench and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam again, if you look at the narrative from a mammal walk at the Prophet

00:07:29--> 00:08:00

sallallahu alayhi wasallam decided, right? And no doubt he was guided by Allah subhanho wa Taala. But also we know from the life of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam that there was personal he had, there was personal reasoning that he would apply and that's why the companions were known to ask him whenever he made a decision, is this from Allah is this from you? For if it is from Allah, we have nothing to say but if it is from you, then allow us to suggest an alternative approach. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam decided that the trench should be dug on the north end side, only

00:08:01--> 00:08:37

Subhana Allah, I mean, Medina could have been attacked from anywhere. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is using past experience is using the experience of the man with him is using the knowledge of the terrain. And he uses all this collectivity to decide that the North inside only we will dig. And this is not a small task. We're not saying that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said this, because you know what, it's just a small place. No, it still was a large place. But at the end of the day, you couldn't dig all of Medina right. So why did he decide on this sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Well, he decided on this because the rest of Medina was surrounded by Rocky

00:08:37--> 00:09:13

Mountains and by by trees, which made it more difficult for larger armies to cross so Subhanallah the prophets of Allah Allah he was at least taking into consideration that this is a group of 10,000 plus or minus, plus the riding animals plus the animals that they will bring to sacrifice to feed the army. right because you needed to feed the army as we discussed that the Battle of better out the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam assessed the army of the Qureshi assessed them by understanding how many candles they slaughter every day. Through this, he understood how many people they were feeding every day. So

00:09:14--> 00:09:56

the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam had to put trust in his experience in the knowledge of the terrain and he understood that the army of the side definitely would not plan an approach which entailed them having to go through large portions of trees, which entailed them having to go through Rocky Mountains, right because Medina was surrounded also by volcanic formations. And you see this today as well brothers and sisters in Islam in Medina. So, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam felt that the only penetrable penetrable place into Medina would be via the northend site. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam chose the site for the trench to be dug in so panel light was

00:09:56--> 00:09:56

true.

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

It was true to

00:10:00--> 00:10:12

You know the the point of his considerations that when this army arrived they arrived at the north in front of Medina. Now, one of the reasons also why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam decided on digging the North inside was so that he could use mount Salah

00:10:15--> 00:10:59

to his advantage because this mountain would give them the aerial advantage. Okay, now when you you know whoever visits Medina they there's this norm with that you go through what they call the zR the zR means, you go to bound or heard you go to amount to budget Koba you go to sometimes Mr. Table attain if it's part and parcel of, of this era, it is era means you visit the main sites of Medina. Sometimes they take you to the date farms, near or hard, and then they also take you to what they call the place of 100 when they take you to the place of 100 the place that they take you to is Mount Salah, Red Mountain, you see that is Mount Salah, to the best of my knowledge, right where you

00:10:59--> 00:11:04

see these little carvings that represent the places of Salah.

00:11:05--> 00:11:43

So this is what the Muslims were camped now you know it might be difficult to understand when you go there and many of the pilgrims always say I can't understand this where was where was the hand deck because we only see roads and buildings. Well yes this is now now there's roads and buildings. But generally the trench is where you drive over with your bus or with your car when you're doing the when you're doing the the car right so where you see the buses parked and where you see the cars driving, this is the area which was a massive trench. Right? And this shows you that everything before that was was not Medina and today it is Medina to show you how huge Medina is and by the way

00:11:43--> 00:12:17

you normally come to 100 after visiting art and or this part of Medina today. But back in the day or what was outside we know the Battle of all heard was fought outside of Medina. Right and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did the Shura with the mahadji rune and I'm sorry, should we fight him from within or from without and there were voices that were saying from within and then it was decided that they will go out that's the point they went out of Medina and the battle took place at all right? So this wasn't Medina. Today it is Medina when you drive in Medina, Masha Allah or Hades overlooking you, a mountain that we love, and a mountain which loves us as the Prophet sallallahu

00:12:17--> 00:12:24

alayhi wa sallam said, so this was the area of the trench. Now, let's put some context here. Again, I shared it with us

00:12:25--> 00:12:28

towards the end of yesterday's episode, but once again,

00:12:29--> 00:12:46

let's remind ourselves to the context here. There's no experience digging trenches. There is no experience dealing with an army of this magnitude. There is no tools. Right? There was a farmer and just before this, right, the Arabian Peninsula went through great difficulty. Right? So there was a lot of hunger, they were just recovering from this.

00:12:48--> 00:12:49

Also,

00:12:50--> 00:13:17

you know, we know that the Battle of our heart was also a difficult battle. But that battle took place at a time when there was no family. Right? So the Muslims had levels of strength then that they don't have now and now they have to dig a trench which they didn't need to do then. So imagine the limited resources you have in terms of human power you also depleting it in having to dig this trench that has never been

00:13:19--> 00:13:57

you know, attempted before. I mean, today you probably think of the Guinness Book of Records right? You breaking a Guinness world record something that has never been attempted before. This is what is happening in effect brothers and sisters in Islam. Let me add to that, as the scholars of Sierra say, there was also the fact that Medina was experiencing it's cooler months, not just cooler months, it's cold months. And the cold of Medina used to hit the bones brothers and sisters in Islam. It's a dry cold, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke about min sobre Allah Allah, Allah el Medina, those who are patient with the with the severe cold, the severe winds of

00:13:57--> 00:14:09

Medina and and the rewards and the virtues and the honor right given how noble it is to live in Medina. So and even when you go today, brothers and sisters in Islam you go during the December months, the january MONTH,

00:14:11--> 00:14:50

even early February, if you've got out of the city, you actually feel the dry cold, right? I am based in reality. So we feel this yearly because reality is in the middle of nowhere, literally, it's in the middle of the desert. So whatever cold comes in, it doesn't come over water, it doesn't come over any seas. So it comes over dry desert so the cold gets colder and colder and colder until it hits you in the city and you actually feel it hit your bones. So this was the reality and we have today all these warm clothing and all these Mashallah you know, leather jackets and woolen jerseys and so on and so forth and headgear, this habit of the Allahu Anima Jemaine they didn't have all of

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

this stuff. Right. Some of them only had one pair of clothes brothers and sisters in Islam. So you're doing this with no break during the cold as

00:15:00--> 00:15:40

Chile severe nights. It's very cold, right? You feel the chills when the when the cold hits you. So this context we shouldn't forget. Also, let's not forget the human element brothers and sisters at this time we've spoken about external factors, let's talk about the fact that the Muslim army was far less than the opposition, the fact that you digging this trench with the anxiety that any time this army can appear, and you could only be halfway, you could only be a quarter away. So you're unprepared because right now you're focusing all your efforts on digging a trench SubhanAllah. And then also, you can't help but think and this is human nature. What if the trench doesn't work?

00:15:41--> 00:15:46

Right? Then, you know, maybe we should be doing something else. Maybe you know, Subhan Allah,

00:15:47--> 00:16:26

then also the fact that this army that's coming is not coming to negotiate. It's coming to annihilate, right? So are you thinking of your family, you're thinking of your children, you thinking of your relatives, all this is in the back of your mind, it's as if you're counting your hours. But despite all of this, and this should teach us brothers and sisters in Islam, who the Sahaba or the Allahumma Despite all this, summer and water, despite all this, they heard and they obeyed, they didn't doubt they put their trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala well and Allah He fell yet Oh, call me noon, where and Allah He finally at our Kali Mata Ki Lune, to Han Allah, Allah Allah,

00:16:26--> 00:16:53

Allah, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah Allah He walked out the head and so bolena to handle a willingness, we run the airline as a tuner. So Pamela I'm reading is from surat Ibrahim, not related, but also related to have Allah because this is the reality. Allah says, upon Allah, do the do the believers place their trust, and why shouldn't the believers place their trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala when it is Allah subhanho wa Taala who has guided them to the right path?

00:16:54--> 00:17:22

Right, and and the people of belief, say, and we surely will be patient, upon the harm and difficulty that you bring to us, for upon Allah subhanho wa Taala do the people who place their trust, placed their trust, that's where they place their trust. They know at the end of the day, they might be limited in their ability you get to a stage in life brothers and sisters in Islam, Are you overwhelmed? You have peeked at you, you know, your capacity has peaked. There's nothing more that you can do.

00:17:24--> 00:17:57

Besides put your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala let the one who is upon Allah able to take care of things. So no one questioned the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam no one doubted and this helps brothers and sisters in Islam. This is what you need. At this time of turbulence. You need everyone on the same page, ready to work, not second guessing themselves not second guessing the leader. And they dig the trench with their hands. Brothers and sisters in Islam. Nobody's complaining about no pigs. They digging with their hands, can you imagine? And I'll give you the dimensions of this trench so you can understand what work went here? Did they have

00:17:58--> 00:18:38

tools in limited supply? So they had to use the hands? Did they have wheelbarrows? No, they didn't. How were they carrying the decks and they were literally lifting up the bottom garment. You can't see it on me right now. Because it's beneath the camera. But they lift the how you would imagine you wearing the her arm and then you pull up your forearm and hold it in the shape of an oval, something that that has some depth and then sand is being poured on it. And you grabbing the bottom ends of it making sure you are covered. And at the same time you are holding the sand and you are walking. Imagine how you have to walk you are the wheelbarrow, you are walking to the place where you dump

00:18:38--> 00:19:05

Subhanallah the sand and you come back to continue. And this is your only piece of clothes in some circumstances and it's dirty with sand. But who cares? We're here to work. Right? We are on the journey to Allah and nobody said it's going to be a walk in the park. Right? We are here to leave a legacy through us doing this Muslims 1000s of years from today. Human beings 1000s of years of today may be saved from the Hellfire by being Muslims. We have to love the Sahaba

00:19:09--> 00:19:24

we have to love them. We have to love the Sahaba we have to read about them. We have to look after them. We have to appreciate them. We have to appreciate their role in you and I being from the family of La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah today

00:19:26--> 00:19:44

so brothers and sisters in Islam, may Allah gather us with them agenda I mean Europe, brothers and sisters in Islam, it is said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he then divided the Muslims into groups of 10 and he gave each group the responsibility of digging up to 19 meters of the trench.

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

Let me share some stats of the of this of this trench. I don't know if I said tent earlier I'm in trench. Let me share with you some stats of the trench. They used to measure it using what they call the virar or aq

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

Bit length.

00:20:02--> 00:20:15

So my measurements might be slightly off in terms of what other books might say. But conservatively speaking, the trench was 2350 meters long.

00:20:17--> 00:20:23

And it was 4.23 meters plus or minus in width.

00:20:24--> 00:20:29

And it was four to 4.7 meters in depth.

00:20:31--> 00:20:37

By Allah ask you brothers and sisters in Islam, how can you not love the Sahaba anhydrite? How can you not be amazed by them?

00:20:40--> 00:20:43

I mean, what are we capable of? And what did they do?

00:20:44--> 00:20:58

accordingly, brothers and sisters in Islam, they dug and the north in front of Medina was dug up, which was the most vulnerable area for attack. As we said, we said that the other sides had treacherous

00:20:59--> 00:21:40

terrain, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam looked at it as follows he felt that portions of Medina had jagged volcanic rock, which arm is always avoided. So it means the Quraysh and the hopper van and Boone NaVi these people are not going to come via the east, nor are they going to come via the West. Then I have mount Salah, my man, Salah is going to protect us, right? So we at the north in front and in front of it, we're going to dig this barrier, then on the on the southwest. We have been operated by local river set settled there. And the Arabs had always this understanding, right that you don't go through a people unless they give you permission. And Balu carova have an

00:21:40--> 00:22:22

agreement with us a security pact, that we protect them and they protect us so they're not going to give the parish permission. So the Southwest West technically is protected. Then, in terms of what's left the southern side, right the southern side of Medina, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam felt that there there was tightened at homes they were raised. And the Quran should avoid this because if they actually try to enter Medina through the southern side, then they will be attacked with an aerial attack. So they settled on the north side, also to help the situation and help boost the morale of the army. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam added an extra measure. And he that

00:22:22--> 00:23:06

measure was in taking the women and children of the Sahaba and moving them to the inner fortresses of Medina, so the inner part of the city so that the fighters outside would not feel stressed about their families. And it said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had 3000 fighters, but he kept 1000 with him at the trench, which means 2000 were used as backup, as protectors of the families of the Sahaba robiola animoji. Many of these fighters who were going to face the Confederates also some sources say that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam got the people have Medina to harvest their crops early so that the Confederate armies would only have to rely on their

00:23:06--> 00:23:08

own food. And remember,

00:23:09--> 00:23:34

the hopper fan will promise the harvest of Medina. So if the harvest happens early, then the hopper fan, you know, maybe they will realize that there's nothing for us to benefit from here, and inshallah we'll discuss some of the tactics that happened with regards to the copper copper fan later with a towel. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he did all of this, all of this, the women are protected, the children are protected. Okay, now we've harvested early so the foodstuffs are protected.

00:23:36--> 00:23:47

What else? There was the problem of the new korova blucora for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and this is part of leadership. He didn't forget the treachery of bunu by Luca and Bernal NaVi.

00:23:48--> 00:24:30

Right, and these were the brethren of Banu Kaurava. right that the you know, there's a norm here of treachery, that they make a security pact and they break it. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam ensured that one eye or intelligence was kept on by no korova not when the Confederates arrived, but from the time the news of the Confederate of Confederates coming to lay, see john Medina reach them. You wanted Subhana Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to really gauge their bodily language. They thought, their initial impressions, the initial the initial manifestations, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted to understand this, and also then when the siege began,

00:24:30--> 00:24:55

he wanted to understand what was happening. So look at this, Pamela, I mean, this is like bird's eye view, a holistic approach. This is leadership at another level. sallallahu alayhi wasallam. How can we not love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, some important points to note here, brothers and sisters in Islam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he participated with his companions through this

00:24:56--> 00:25:00

tribulation. When I say participated, I mean he

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

was also sallallahu alayhi wa sallam covered in dust.

00:25:05--> 00:25:06

He was also covered in dust.

00:25:07--> 00:25:23

Recently we spoke about leadership from the front leadership from the back I spoke about this in season two when we spoke about how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam book measured the number we I don't want to go into the into details inshallah you can source season two, but I will share some more ideas about this

00:25:24--> 00:26:00

in relation to the Battle of the Confederates. Number two, in addition to this video brothers and sisters in Islam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did not allow for himself any benefit. And he put everyone first before himself. And this is leadership. Right? When they talk about sailors and the people of the seas, they talk about the captain going down with the ship, that the captain make sure everyone gets off the ship is like the sailor holds this true to their role. It's something they live by and abide by, and they hold in high regard that the captain never abandons the ship.

00:26:01--> 00:26:03

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam put everyone before him.

00:26:05--> 00:26:10

Everyone before him, our brothers and sisters in Islam. These people were hungry, but on the other hand,

00:26:12--> 00:26:36

they were hungry. They were not eating. They were digging. There was no buffet there was no you know, when you go for Hajj and you say hedges that type of jihad hedges that type of difficulty no doubt. But then you go then there's buffets laid out Mashallah, depending on the group that you go with, right you can get five star hedge buffets laid out and even if you go for a one star head you're going to get inshallah three meals a day, clean meals, running water, sewage system, and so on and so forth.

00:26:37--> 00:26:38

There was nothing here.

00:26:39--> 00:26:53

There was nothing here brothers and sisters in Islam, everybody is preparing. There was no time to get families to cook meals and look after the diggers and those running the trench. Everyone had a role to play because there was no time and there was so much to be done.

00:26:55--> 00:27:00

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was more hungry than the Sahaba

00:27:01--> 00:27:07

he was more hungry than the Sahaba sallallahu alayhi wasallam the most beloved to Allah

00:27:09--> 00:27:18

the final messenger the seed of all prophets. We fasting the month of Ramadan, brothers and sisters in Islam, how much do we leave because we fast in the month of Ramadan

00:27:20--> 00:27:26

it's hot outside, we won't go for the Salah. We our fast will get to difficult we pray at home.

00:27:27--> 00:27:31

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is more hungry brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:27:33--> 00:27:35

He wasn't doing this for financial gain.

00:27:36--> 00:27:38

For sovereign rain.

00:27:39--> 00:27:46

He was doing it for the cause for bringing as many of human kind to paradise and saving them from the hellfire.

00:27:49--> 00:27:55

Even if his people didn't understand he was going to continue even if they were going to lay siege on him he was going to continue.

00:27:57--> 00:28:13

So Pamela I want to share with you two hot touching descriptive and aerations before we enter the I know our time is coming up but a shade Be sure you since we discussing this, we must talk about this first, the hadith of jab robiola, which is in Sahih al Bukhari

00:28:14--> 00:28:24

jabiru says we were digging the trench on the day of 100 the Battle of the trench and we came across a big solid rock.

00:28:26--> 00:28:27

We couldn't deal with this rock.

00:28:28--> 00:28:58

So we came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Okay, look at leadership, they came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and they said this this big rock that has appeared as we digging, we can't go through it, we can't go under it and no doubt it will be a means for them to go over it and reach us. They will just use this rock as a means to get over. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was busy you can imagine he's digging with his hands, he's carrying his moving his he's dusty. He hears them. Oprah messenger of Allah, we need help. Jabara says, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I'm coming.

00:28:59--> 00:29:26

I'm coming down. sallallahu alayhi wasallam you always have this, this, this picture in your mind, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is always coming, he's always going to be there. On the day of gamma, he's coming is going to be their body's hope to give water to his oma so that they don't feel thirsty and they don't feel the hurt and pangs and difficulties of the day of camp. Because Allah promised him this basin that whoever drinks from it will never be thirsty again.

00:29:28--> 00:29:51

The prophets coming when when people are being put in the Hellfire and people are waiting to go to Paradise the prophets of Allah Allah wa sallam comes to Allah and begs Allah to save the Muslims from the Hellfire to take them out from the Hellfire to allow the Muslims to enter Paradise to allow the Muslims to have an increased version of Paradise is always there sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said I'm coming down, and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he gets up.

00:29:53--> 00:30:00

He gets up. And Jabir sees a stone tied to the stomach of the

00:30:00--> 00:30:15

Salalah alayhi wa sallam, because as the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam is not trying to show them anything, he's he's coming down. So in the process of coming down, your parts of your body gets exposed. So here they see beneath his upper garment, there's a stone tied to his belly.

00:30:16--> 00:30:19

And jabiru says, We are not eaten for three days.

00:30:20--> 00:30:38

So they would do this to kill hunger, that when you tie the stone tight, it creates a sense of weight on your body. And also it pushes the stomach in so that the space of the stomach is reduced, so you don't feel the pangs of hunger as you normally would.

00:30:39--> 00:31:13

This is what the Sahaba did. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi. wasallam himself has a stone tied to his belly job. He says, We are not eaten for three days, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he took the speed that was there. And he struck this big solid rock and it became like sans panela and I'll discuss this with you maybe tomorrow insha Allah. But there was a visionary moment with regards to this rock that we find in some narrations. We'll discuss this tomorrow. But let's just focus on this one brothers and sisters in Islam for now, this rock becomes like sand. jabiru says, or messenger of Allah. Allow me to go home.

00:31:15--> 00:31:19

Allow me to go home. You seeking permission from the Prophet sallallaahu Holly said

00:31:22--> 00:31:24

he's not going home for himself.

00:31:25--> 00:31:28

He's going home because of what he saw from the Prophet sallallaahu Holly who said

00:31:30--> 00:31:41

to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam allowed him to go home. And he goes to his wife and he says, I saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left in a state that I cannot treat like

00:31:43--> 00:31:45

I cannot treat lightly

00:31:46--> 00:31:47

Subhan Allah.

00:31:49--> 00:31:50

Robbie, Allah

00:31:53--> 00:31:56

Subhana Allah, he tells his wife,

00:31:58--> 00:32:10

have you got something, something to eat? She says I have Bali and I have a female goat. So jabil says I slaughtered the female goat immediately. And I told my wife to ground the body.

00:32:11--> 00:32:31

And then to cook the meat, put the meat in a pot and cook it. And then he went back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Oh prophet of Allah. I have some dough, and I have some meat that is cooking in a pot. I have some softened dough, and I have some meat that is cooking in a pot and

00:32:32--> 00:32:39

it's almost cooked Please get up or prophet of Allah and come with me and bring just one or two people

00:32:43--> 00:32:54

so I'm bringing one or two people here because obviously it's thinking that you know what, it's a difficult situation I don't have enough I don't have enough I just have enough to feed you or missing you have been one or two people.

00:32:56--> 00:33:04

Today we fast and then we break fast Mashallah. And the table is full, full brothers Masha, Allah de Baraka, how many? How many times do we think of the poor?

00:33:05--> 00:33:10

Those who fast and have to fast because they have no food to begin the fast food to break the fast.

00:33:11--> 00:33:18

We Allah forgive us, I mean, Europe. jabil says, I said this is the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:33:19--> 00:33:30

and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, how much food do you have a jab. So jabil explained, I have enough for you and two people. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:33:32--> 00:33:48

this is abundant good, who are able to heal? It's abundant good. He said, to jabber, tell your wife not to remove the meat from the pot. And don't take the pot off the fire. And don't take any bread out of the oven until I come.

00:33:51--> 00:33:54

So Java goes back. And Java

00:33:55--> 00:34:21

SE says that the Prophet you know, he's narrating the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said to the to the mahadji rune and the unser, he said to them all get up and come with me. jabiru said bring one on to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brings himself with two groups, all of the modules and all of the inside jabber says I went to my wife and I told her that Allah's mercy be upon you the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is coming with the Mahajan and the answer.

00:34:23--> 00:34:26

Now look at the wife of Jabba. The wife of jabiru says to

00:34:28--> 00:34:48

me, they were amazing. She says to him, and this reminds me of hajer it he said, I'm the wife of Ibrahim, when he brought him left her in the middle of nowhere. And she says to Abraham, are you leaving us here? He doesn't say anything. She says again, are you leaving us here? He says nothing. Then she asked him for a third time. Then she says did Allah tell you to leave us here?

00:34:49--> 00:34:49

And he?

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

He nodded and she was calm. She knew that the Lord of Ibrahim he will look after us. Ibrahim doesn't look after us.

00:35:00--> 00:35:38

So, the wife of Jagger says, Did you tell the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam how much food you had? Jagger said yes. And she was at peace. She was calm. She didn't panic at all right? Because she knows it's Allah subhanho wa Taala, who feeds and this is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to them, oh, how to run and I'm sorry, enter, but do not crowd and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam went to the to the port with the oven, and he started cutting the bread into pieces, and he put the cooked meat over the bread. And then he covered the pot. Every time he took on meat, he covered the pot. And anytime he took

00:35:38--> 00:36:21

something out, he would cover it. And he would give the food to his companions, he would take the meat, put it on the bread, give the food to his companions, and they would eat and they would eat and they would eat and he would keep on putting his hand in the pot and meat still kept coming out and bread still kept coming out of the oven. And he would pass it on like this Subhan Allah Subhana Allah He did this until the mahadji rune and the unsolved ate to the foo. And even then food remained. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to jabber and his wife, eat what remains and present the food to the others in Medina, for we are a people who are stuck with hunger.

00:36:23--> 00:36:25

Allah ilaha illAllah a miracle brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:36:27--> 00:36:54

America and Indeed Allah gives sustenance to the people of taqwa from places they cannot imagine. I'm sure you are listening to me right now and you are thinking in your life Subhan Allah, how you know money came to you or a laptop came to you or a phone came to you or something came to you when you weren't even looking for it. You weren't even thinking about it. Allah brought it to your door mean hate letters if you didn't even think about it, and Allah brought it to you when you weren't even bothered about it.

00:36:56--> 00:36:58

And when you got it you saw so Pamela you were in need of

00:37:00--> 00:37:01

a job comes to you like this

00:37:02--> 00:37:04

and opening comes to you like this.

00:37:06--> 00:37:10

So Pamela, is ilaha illa Allah these no one worthy of worship besides one Allah?

00:37:12--> 00:37:52

I know we pass in time, but I promise to narrations so let me share with you the secondary. The secondary mission by is by Al Bara even as a Ravi Allah who is a great companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and this is also inside al Bukhari. He says when it was the day of the zurb, the day of the cleanse the Confederates and Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam dug the trench, I saw him carrying Earth out of the trench to dust made the skin of his abdomen out of my sight, meaning it covered him so badly that I couldn't see the skin of his at his abdomen. And I know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was hearing he had hair on his abdomen, but there was

00:37:52--> 00:38:12

so much just I couldn't see to Pamela. He says, I saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam working and digging and carrying and moving, and I heard him doing this whilst reciting the poetic verses composed by Eben raha. Whilst he was carrying this earth, He would say Allahumma Loyola and Dena Walla

00:38:13--> 00:38:26

Walla Salina for an Zeeland sirki Nathan Alina was a bit academic in painter in in Ola Casa de bajo la Nina, we're in arado fit Nathan been.

00:38:27--> 00:39:09

I'm trying to read how it's described, because barah says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would save this and at the end, he would prolong his voice at the last words, the meaning of these words are, Oh Allah, without you, we would have not been guided, nor would we have given in charity, nor would we have prayed the Salah. So Allah please send upon us calmness, please send upon us tranquility, and make our feet firm if we meet the enemy, and they have rebelled against us, and if they intend affliction, and want to frighten us and want to fight against us, then we will not flee, but we will withstand them. So sometimes, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam sallallahu alayhi

00:39:09--> 00:39:45

wa sallam brothers and sisters in Islam. This is just a bit of insights into him and his leadership and how he's going about his way and what he's saying and what he's doing and how he's leading from the front and leading from behind. In an unprecedented circumstance and situation, our time has come to an end. But insha Allah, we ask Allah to preserve us in his obedience. So we come back tomorrow for part three of the Battle of the Confederates and discuss this visionary moment that happened when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam struck the rock, I will share that with you inshallah, tomorrow, and then after that insha Allah We will take a slight break from the story, because the

00:39:45--> 00:40:00

story goes on. We'll take a slight pit stop, and we'll go into the lessons that can benefit us in the 21st century from the three episodes really, or the two and a bit episodes related to the Battle of the Confederates that we have taken thus far. I love you all for the sake of it.

00:40:00--> 00:40:25

bas subhanho wa Taala My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, everything collected is from Allah alone and he is perfect and any mistakes are from myself and she upon and I see Carlos Pena who is forgiveness. May Allah forgive our past and inspire our futures and raise our faith and make us worthy members of the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I mean, you are behind me Until next time, Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
