rubbish. rocklea sadri westerly Emery. What? Look at the tambien lissoni yufka who Paoli we begin as always brothers and sisters in Islam by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala. We praise Him. We request his assistance and we seek His guidance and we request praises and blessings upon the final messenger Muhammad Ali Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and as always we bear witness that there's no one worthy of worship besides one Allah, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is His Messenger. I welcome you all my dearest brothers and sisters in Islam. Across all our platforms, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and clubhouse to Episode 10. Season Four blast from the past Siraj in the

00:01:43--> 00:02:13

21st century. I'm grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala, that he's blessed us to be consistent to have covered 10 episodes of as far and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for continued consistency and to help us get to the end of our curriculum together this Ramadan mean era but I mean, yesterday, brothers and sisters in Islam, we discussed the intensity of the Battle of the Confederacy even though actual fighting wasn't taking place. But

00:02:14--> 00:03:01

there was a war of emotions happening, there was an intellectual war strategic war taking place. Obviously, in terms of the physical war, this trench was phenomenal in neutralizing the threat of this massive army. And no doubt. As a result, it weakened to some extent the resolve of the Confederates and it strengthened the resolve of the believers. And despite the limited numbers and the siege that they were facing, they managed to constantly keep up with the vast range of the trench, ensuring that they sorted off any threats again, it came with its fair share of difficulties and then we went on to learn how to nuke arriva. Now, we're being treacherous, and how Subhanallah

00:03:01--> 00:03:35

you can only imagine what would happen to the resolve of these human beings because now they thinking of their families, they thinking of their children, they thinking of their wives that have been left in the middle of the city. And if the Confederates get in from the side of bamboo korova, can you imagine that's the end of our wives, that's the end of our children, what are we going to do, right? It's not like as if 10,000 people are going to leave and go from that end, and we can, you know, go and try and fight them off. It's going to be a case where we still have to stand guard over here. And we have to worry about who's going to manage the situation over there. So it was

00:03:35--> 00:04:17

turbulence upon turbulence. It was difficulty upon difficulty. And we ended off with the vs yesterday which Allah subhanho wa Taala really painted an image in our minds through the eloquence of the Quran and his ayat in how Allah subhanho wa Taala described the reality of the believers at that moment when they were shaken, a severe shaken, and they say they assumed about Allah subhanho wa Taala assumptions, obviously, or good assumptions. But nonetheless, all of a sudden, you know, things that you thought wouldn't happen all of a sudden become a reality in the human mind, especially when you realize that you've hit your capacity. You've hit your true potential, you can't

00:04:18--> 00:04:59

go through it and the situation is just beyond you. Allah says whatever Luna Billa Luna, you assumed assumptions about Allah subhanho wa Taala says when it comes to you, we know and indeed there we tested severely who for believers, because they had the level of Eman to manage that test to go through that shaking to go through that turbulence was ulusal zeland shaida Yes, a great earthquake they were placed within and a great earthquake surrounded them they were shaken from beneath them, and from above them and from their sides, but Subhanallah it's only worth beginning today's episode brothers and sisters in Islam, looking at the verses that Allah subhanho wa Taala shared

00:05:00--> 00:05:16

Before he described what he described to us yesterday for Allah subhanho wa Taala before telling us how the believers were shaken, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, yeah you have levena man with guru. Mehta was here early he couldn't eat.

00:05:17--> 00:05:20

At school, food is

00:05:21--> 00:05:23

skoon ju.

00:05:24--> 00:05:27

Li e Marie how to lose.

00:05:29--> 00:06:12

Work can Allah who be mad men who never see your Allah subhanho wa Taala says to the believers, oh you who have believed that? Again I reiterate, this is being said before Allah tells us how he shook the believers. Allah says, Oh, you who have believed, remember the favor of Allah upon you, when armies came to attack you not just an army, but armies came to attack you and we sent upon them a wind and armies of angels which you do not see. And Allah is the one who forever sees so Han Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, what kind of love we might have another basura Allah always sees what you do, and this is what we want to discuss today, we want to move the discussion. It's part five

00:06:12--> 00:06:51

now of the Battle of the Confederates, but we want to move it swiftly towards its end. And its end means we discuss how Allah subhanho wa Taala put an end to this particular battle. But before that, some more drama. The days continue to roll on. Not just fake drama, but real drama, but I'm saying drama and you understand what I'm saying brothers and sisters in Islam, meaning there's more to come. The days are rolling on, the Confederates kept trying. The Muslims kept pushing back. Now remember this Harley Davidson Waleed Harley Davidson Waleed, this mighty Muslim warrior, eventually, mighty Muslim, auria. Before that he was a mighty men Muslim already and we know of his efforts

00:06:51--> 00:06:53

during the Battle of our head, and we discussed it

00:06:54--> 00:07:20

in detail in season three of blast from the past, when we discussed the Battle of Harlequin worried he is there, he is also trying with all his military might and expertise to deal with the current impasse. And he and his men were being also monitored carefully, diligently by one of the seniors of the ansara recite email hotel, and we discussed her site a little bit when we spoke about

00:07:21--> 00:07:26

the expedition of renewal mysteries. And we also discussed or said during

00:07:27--> 00:08:10

it could be the end of season two, but definitely at the beginning of season three, when we discussed the migration of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to Medina, because he was phenomenal and instrumental in terms of Medina being the home of the Hydra for him because of his efforts before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left left Mecca. So he is being watched carefully by Hussein Hussein, he was also leading a team of fighters of, of soldiers, and they constantly were on their toes, 14 of the movements of Khalid and the attacks of Khalid, and you can only imagine how severe this was the level of you know, sometimes, but I'm just trying to think

00:08:10--> 00:08:50

about it because, you know, sometimes they say, like, for example, if you stuck in heavy traffic, and look, you can imagine this, if you live in some countries where it's a massive road, they stick traffic and cross cars and bicycles and motorbikes, everything, everyone is criss crossing each other. Any, you know, even if there's a half a lane available, they make that into a lane, the amount of mental I'm just trying to think of something personal to me, the amount of mental energy you need to deal with that situation, even though it might be 10 minutes or 15 minutes, is probably far more than the mental energy you need when you drive three hours, four hours on open plane roads,

00:08:50--> 00:09:26

right? So there's a mental process here. And you dealing with a clever, highly intelligent, programmed, trained soldier on the other side, hardly ever worried about the Allah who he ended up becoming the sword of Allah subhanho wa Taala titled, the sort of Allah robiola, and so they were monitoring him that required a lot of mental attention and created a lot of mental stress. So they were dealing with that, however, were they casualties, they weren't casualties. Right. They were casualties by chance, How so? What we discussed how early robiola who managed to deal with one of the most skillful

00:09:27--> 00:09:59

warriors of the Confederates when he managed to cross over and in Urdu, le defeated him so there was a casualty casualty on their side, on the side of the Muslims they were there was casualties as well. How so? Well, why she remember the famous washi who we discussed during the Battle of or heard in season three of loss from the past, who killed Hamza Ravi, Allah and the prophet SAW Allah the creator of great sadness. In the heart of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this washy, he threw a spear over the trench, right he was a strong person

00:10:00--> 00:10:43

He was skilled in in throwing the spears, and he threw it and he killed a companion of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam known as tofail. Rob, the other one, also sad even more, as the great senior of the unsolved was harmed as well, he didn't die. But he was severely harmed also in the form of an arrow being fired across from the side of the Confederates, which struck him SubhanAllah. And he was struck severely, to the extent that he feared he would pass away from the injuries created from the strike. But what did I do? And I want to highlight what the sad do I want to highlight this because we're talking about mental stress, mental pressure, right? mental energies,

00:10:43--> 00:11:26

we're talking about days and weeks, and this is going on and on. And we're talking about the hearts and minds and souls and bodies of human beings. When sad gets struck, what does he say? And this is just part one of sad, sad, we're going to come back just now and again, we'll see how prolific their their faith was that this faith was driving was the driving force always the cockpit, and was the control center of everything, their minds thought of everything the bodies felt of everything, their souls experience, Pamela says immediately here, Allah Subhana Allah, if you make this war with them last any longer, keep me alive for it. So here we see he clearly feels he's going to pass away. He

00:11:26--> 00:11:42

says, For indeed, the people I most love to fight against those who have troubled your messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Subhan Allah. He wasn't from the mahadji rule. He wasn't from the people of Makkah. But look how they welcomed the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the mohajirs.

00:11:43--> 00:12:23

Mighty companions, they were unlike the companions of Musa alayhis. Salam, the answer are a different breed. They were a special breed. And no doubt Allah chose them from the hearts of all of mankind, and honor them to be the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as at the library, Mr. Ravi, Allah says, so sad says it is my love to fight against those who trouble your messenger the most and those who have this believed in him, and those who expelled him from your homeland, so panela so you can see clearly that the answer, even though, you know, the issue, the matters of Makkah, are not a business they made it their business, they were hurt, that the Quraysh

00:12:24--> 00:12:49

ran prep propaganda campaigns against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which we discussed in season one, and Season Two of blast from the past, he was hurt, that they tried to kill him, he was hurt that they banished him from his homeland. And he was heard that they kept coming after him, probably Allah. So this is what he says to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he goes on to say, Ravi, Allah Subhana Allah, this is just phenomenal.

00:12:50--> 00:13:18

He goes on to say that Yeah, Allah, if you are, instead of keep, you know, keeping this war, lasting longer, if you are going to end this will then make the attack on me by them my martyrdom. But here Allah do not make me die until you give me complete satisfaction regarding Balu Kaurava. Because obviously, he knows what boo Korea has done, remember, he was sent to monitor the situation.

00:13:19--> 00:13:52

So he's asking Allah subhanho wa Taala, for the satisfaction about Bhanu Kaurava. After being punctured with an arrow, and profusely bleeding, and fearing that he's going to die, he has the presence of heart and mind to engage Allah subhanho wa Taala and make this data from the bottom of his heart. I know we take pitstops to discuss lessons, but we also need to zoom into the lessons. You can help me by zooming into the lesson by picking up on these things, bringing the context in and then so panela

00:13:55--> 00:14:33

at the same time, taking the lesson that at them at a point where you think a person is most defeated. They turned to Allah subhanho wa Taala in desperation, with complete conviction that Allah subhanho wa Taala he has them and Allah subhanho wa Taala will answer them so hon Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala answered the door of sad By the way, and we will see this when we get to the story of Bernal korova. Now time was passing and the situation as you can imagine, is getting more unbearable. The days are becoming weeks. But impasse continues despite things seemingly tipping into the favor of the Confederates due to the nature of an operator. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:14:33--> 00:14:59

sallam he is constantly thinking about his enemy is constantly thinking about his companions. He's constantly thinking about the mindsets. He's currently thinking about the human nature and his thinking as a leader does think I need to make a plan here. So he contemplates the whole situation. Some Allahu alayhi wasallam and he sees that the Quraysh there's no point dealing with them they are motivated by pride by politics, right? They are motivation motivated by the course. So what else does he have?

00:15:00--> 00:15:24

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he thinks of Badu NaVi NaVi. They are motivated by by what? They are motivated by revenge. So it's no point dealing with them because they were banished. And they are the instigators of this whole thing. Then he thought of the Hata fan, and those who join the hopper fan because of the Hata fan. And he said that these people are motivated by price. They're motivated by money, right?

00:15:25--> 00:15:53

The concept of Don't delay claim today, right? So they are motivated by by money. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam felt that let me enter a negotiation with the hopper fan with these mercenaries who are motivated by price, perhaps we can reach an agreement, we can agree on a deal that is better than the deal that has been offered to them by balloon nowhere. And perhaps they will and this is in the mind of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, perhaps they will,

00:15:54--> 00:16:25

you know, they will detach themselves from the Confederates and that will be a mighty blow. Right, that will be a mighty blow because the Confederates were the Confederates because of the alhaja fan and their allies if they left, then that would really weaken the resolve of whoever remained. So what is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam do again with stealth and great stealth, and this is testimony to his companions, and how diligent they were that it wasn't that he gave them an instruction and they went and messed up Subhanallah and we as people in teams, brothers and sisters at this time, we should also hold ourselves to higher standards. It shouldn't be a case where we

00:16:25--> 00:16:44

live our life where we constantly saying sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry. We're constantly making mistakes, we should respect ourselves respect the brain, Allah gave us respect the human nature Allah has given us respect the body and ability that Allah has given us that yes, we are prone to, to error, but prone to error is an is an exception to the default rule.

00:16:45--> 00:17:21

Right? That's a default, that's not a default the default situation is that we are the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala and amazing as well, which means our mistakes should be fewer than the achievements that we managed to achieve and that is why the prophet and Islam amen also that said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a believer isn't bitten twice so it doesn't fall into the so that the same hole twice, right? Oh come up Allah Allah salatu wa salam o similar to what he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, so we expect other people to set us up for success and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was doing so he was advising stealth he was giving instructions. But

00:17:21--> 00:17:27

also you expect when you delegate that the person you are delegating to, they also respect themselves.

00:17:28--> 00:17:49

And let's see how this his companions are another example of how the companions respected themselves as well. And we spoke about yesterday about how they didn't have it was either yesterday or day before yesterday. One of the reflections from our shelter after Idris heavy the hola that I shared with you that he mentioned from contemplate contemplating the verse in the Quran for bemaraha Malala Helen Taylor home,

00:17:50--> 00:18:02

I just remind you to the lesson, I won't share it because we do have time constraints. The fact that we did use from this verse that these companions were not people with an inferiority complex. Right, they were a people who respected themselves.

00:18:03--> 00:18:10

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he secretly advised invites the hopper.

00:18:11--> 00:18:12

And

00:18:13--> 00:18:21

the people in charge of ensuring this invitation got through, dealt with it in a highly successful way. And the meeting

00:18:23--> 00:18:26

you know, it was successful when it came to be. They

00:18:27--> 00:18:41

understood that there's a price on the table. And currently there's an impasse. It's nothing happening here. We don't see ourselves crossing this particular trench. Yes, there's some deal going on with with with with the Jews with Bhanu Kaurava. But

00:18:42--> 00:19:04

that also needs some time to materialize. Let's see what's on the table. Let's see what's on the table. And then we can decide. So they come for the meeting. And in the meeting, it was what was put on the table in terms of the factors that were negotiated was number one, it was an exclusivity deal, meaning only between the Muslims and the hopper.

00:19:05--> 00:19:06

Right?

00:19:07--> 00:19:08

Only

00:19:09--> 00:19:39

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was not willing to give the cost of this deal to the parade and the burden of it. That's number one. Number two, the hopper fan would sign that deal and they would seize all hostilities. Number three, they would immediately return back to their region and leave the Confederates them along with the allies, those who join because of them. Okay. All right. So what do they get in return? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said you will get 1/3 of all the harvest of Medina.

00:19:40--> 00:19:45

Now, some sources say that the other one said no, we want half.

00:19:46--> 00:20:00

That the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not budge. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said a third or nothing effectively. So the proper font they agreed to I said, Now this was a preliminary agreement. It was not a finalized deal. No

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

signatures or stamps were made. Why? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or even the copper Fund. The fund said to finalize it, we want to bring 10 of our men

00:20:11--> 00:20:21

for the signing, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted to do Shura with his companions, in particular, the senior Tsar, because the harvest of Medina was the domain.

00:20:22--> 00:20:44

He's the leader of the Muslim sallallahu alayhi wa sallam doesn't matter if it's if it's their domain. If he says done, it's done. Give a third it's giving a third. But what did we say was consistent with the messenger Shura Shura? Sure, and this is a so now we need to revive brothers and sisters in Islam within our families, within our workplaces, within our communities, within our profits within our nonprofits,

00:20:45--> 00:20:48

profit entities, nonprofit entities and so on and so forth.

00:20:49--> 00:20:51

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:20:53--> 00:20:57

to ensure that meaning to complete this process of Sure.

00:20:59--> 00:21:24

He calls the two sides. But who do we mean when we say the two sides side even better, and Sadie robiola how much money the seniors off of the answer? He calls them over? And he explains to them what's happened, and what deal has been made. So they listen, as they always did, the Sahaba always listened. Nobody spoke before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now when it was the time to speak,

00:21:26--> 00:21:33

they spoke, what did they do? They asked, they said O Messenger of Allah, this negotiation that you were engaged in?

00:21:35--> 00:21:39

Was it from Allah subhanho wa Taala, as revelation Did you bring bring it to you?

00:21:40--> 00:21:42

Or is this something from your own personal reasoning?

00:21:44--> 00:21:45

This is the first question they asked.

00:21:46--> 00:21:59

Number two, or messenger of Allah? If it's from your personal reasoning, is this something that you love to do? ilaha illa Allah, look at this, look at this. Look at this respect.

00:22:03--> 00:22:07

Is this something that you love to do? Or are you doing it for us?

00:22:09--> 00:22:22

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explained that this is for me. And I'm not doing it as something I love to do, but I'm doing it for you. I'm doing it for the Sahaba I'm doing it for my companions. I'm doing it for the people for the families.

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

He's explaining the profit is exclaiming some of it he was saying that the burden is great. And he recognizes that the human beings

00:22:33--> 00:22:44

and he's looking for a way to weaken the resolve of the other side. And if it means that we save lives, and we give a bit of our harvest, let's do it. This is what he's thinking. sallallahu wasallam said sad even more as

00:22:46--> 00:22:49

he asked for permission to respond.

00:22:50--> 00:22:52

Right? He asked for

00:22:53--> 00:23:02

permission to respond. Now, who are we talking about? We're talking about Saturday, when was the ad even more as what's happened to him? He's injured.

00:23:04--> 00:23:05

He needs treatment.

00:23:07--> 00:23:09

You'd say he's a man in need.

00:23:13--> 00:23:43

Listen to what he says. Sir, I'd even seeks permission to speak and he replies because oh Rasulullah messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there was a time when we and the Hata van, we participated in idolatry together, we worshipped idols together. And then at that time, when we worship the idols together, they were never ever happy to eat our harvest to eat from our fruits, except as guests or except through trade.

00:23:45--> 00:23:50

Except as guests or accept a straight there was none of this

00:23:52--> 00:24:19

you know kind of blackmail situation taking place here. This is what he says. And look at the value he met. And this is the point brothers and sisters in Islam. He says, if they want our fruits or messenger of Allah, because of La ilaha illa Allah then we will not we will not accept this agreement. And we will not hand over our fruits except through the sword. And Allah will be a judge between us and meaning we will fight.

00:24:21--> 00:24:29

He then gets up and he proceeds to erase the deal the citation from the scroll about giving them a third of the harvest of Medina.

00:24:30--> 00:24:35

Now there's a massive leadership lesson here brothers and sisters in Islam and perhaps I'll touch on it during the pitstop.

00:24:36--> 00:24:38

When we take the set of lessons from this

00:24:42--> 00:24:44

we all need to catch our breath I can imagine.

00:24:45--> 00:25:00

So obviously this whole negotiation with the cop often false. But Subhan Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala what can Allah who be my Terra Luna basura Allah is upon everything that you do a witness. Allah is omniscient.

00:25:00--> 00:25:37

Allah sees you. Allah is witnessing this conversation between the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the hopper fun. Allah is witnessing the conversation between the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in the seniors of the unsought, Allah is witnessing their response and the actions of Saturday, Bill Moran, who is injured because of this and how he puts forward La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah before everything and anything, there's no need for us to play the weakened card here or messenger of Allah, we were weak then when we worship the idols together and we're misguided together, we are strong now they are weak, despite the numbers despite what they think despite what

00:25:37--> 00:25:46

they feel, despite what they believe. So Allah will judge between us Allah is watching this, Allah is witnessing this, Allah subhanho wa Taala opens away. So

00:25:47--> 00:25:54

you know, when you give something, when you leave something for the sake of Allah, Allah gives you back something better.

00:25:56--> 00:26:03

When Tara cache and Leila or what have Allah who hate on me, when a slave of Allah gives up something for the sake of Allah.

00:26:04--> 00:26:08

Allah replaces that something was something better. What does Allah replace?

00:26:09--> 00:26:15

This deal went What did Allah replace it with? Allah replaces it with a man from the hopper fan.

00:26:17--> 00:26:21

Who comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam declaring that he wants to accept Islam.

00:26:25--> 00:26:29

Put Laila high Lama first Allah brings you someone who comes to say la ilaha illa Allah

00:26:31--> 00:26:33

phenomena, mind blowing

00:26:35--> 00:26:57

lessons from the Syrah in the 21st century. Look today what we do brothers and sisters in Islam, gymnastics with the religion, try and and bring every difference of the scholars to the table. Even if the difference of opinion is weak, even if the statement is weak, even if it goes against the evidences bring everything and anything. Why? To help people follow the desires.

00:26:59--> 00:27:21

I'm not trying to tap into the intentions of anybody, but just generally speaking, to help people follow their desires to help make them on the other side. Feel that you know what? These guys the nice guys. Okay, we all one group, right? We all love. We all like we all preach peace. And we all want happy family.

00:27:23--> 00:27:33

Right? You know the Burundian friends song right? I love you. You love me we want happy family. Right? So honestly,

00:27:35--> 00:27:44

when you read the statements of sad, sad even wise, it can tell you a little bit I think I'm a bit tilted. This is not my norm. So my No, I think chef Yousuf will agree who's listening in as well.

00:27:46--> 00:27:53

But in any case, we take a lesson here in the 21st century brothers and sisters in Islam that put Allah first and you will never ever finish last.

00:27:54--> 00:28:32

Put Allah first and you will never ever finish last Allah sin someone from the top of hapa know ABB Mr mister with Ravi Allah who and he is, you know, in this matter for all these days and witnessing the believers and witnessing their steadfastness and witnessing the ethics and witnessing their diligence. Subhana Allah, Allah opens his heart, he feels this religion is the truth. I want to accept Islam. He comes in secret to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he accepts Islam. And no doubt he was guided by Allah. Right? And he asks the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on messenger of Allah, please use me, use me in a way that is pleasing to Allah. After I was using

00:28:32--> 00:28:59

myself in a way that was displeasing to Allah, La ilaha illa Allah, brand new Muslim, new Muslim, immediately he's saying, put me to use in a way that is pleasing to Allah. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that you know what you just want man? You want man you cannot benefit as being here in Medina. Right? And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thinks of a war tactic, a war tactic known as deception. And war is about deception.

00:29:00--> 00:29:09

That's what it's about. It's a tactic to win. Because it's either, you know, if you don't step up, they're going to step up and you're going to die. And the truth is going to die with you.

00:29:10--> 00:29:29

So the Prophet salallahu alaihe. I mean, don't call it deception, call it a strategy. It's worse strategy. Right to deceive, to give an impression that is not the impression. So you gain an advantage. That's war. Right when it's war time, the structures of the boundary are redrawn. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam says to him,

00:29:30--> 00:29:39

you can help us more if you go back and settle with the Confederates because they don't know that you're a Muslim. So go settle with them in the desert and

00:29:40--> 00:29:52

monitor what they do and also try and separate between their ranks. If you dis unite them, it will weaken them. Remember earlier we said as a lesson that falsehood is one religion.

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

Right? And if I in case I forget to say during the pitstop let me say it here, because most likely will do the same.

00:30:00--> 00:30:10

talk tomorrow. So let me say it here. falsehood is one religion, but falsehood comes across as United. Were kulu boom shatter, but falsehood is disunited.

00:30:11--> 00:30:14

You might look at the people of false who then think that the United

00:30:15--> 00:30:22

But no, they are this united they might, like we saw, we said at the end of the Confederates, that falsehood unites against the truth.

00:30:24--> 00:30:28

But it's not a real union. It's just a union of convenience.

00:30:29--> 00:30:34

So why is tasked with going to try and split the ranks?

00:30:36--> 00:31:06

In my name was intelligent, Masha, Allah, Allah and Allah was guiding him. No aim thinks about the situation. And he feels that you know what the most vulnerable out of everyone here is the newest addition but Makarova, the guys who have just joined us, the guys who were treacherous and broke, they're packed with the Muslims, they the most vulnerable from amongst us. So he decides, let me start with them. So he goes to them as a Cincy advisor. And he says to them, Look, basically he says to them, Look,

00:31:07--> 00:31:15

the people who will lose the most from this, if the Muslims, when are you going to pour over why you gave up your security pact.

00:31:17--> 00:31:30

And the Confederates are going to go back together, and you are going to be next to the Muslims in your in your numbers. Who's going to lose the most you're going to lose the most, they are going to deal with you.

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

You think that there's no chance that Muslims are going to win? But let me tell you, how long have we been here and nothing's happening. So nor me saying to them, I think you need to do something to help your situation. Hmm, what should we do? name says, I think you should ask the courage for 20 of their men are security.

00:31:51--> 00:32:01

So if the courage leave without victory, because they promising you victory, when you entered the deal, the deal was Don't worry, it's a matter of time winning is going to happen. It's just win.

00:32:02--> 00:32:20

In case they don't win, and they true to their word they telling me it's a matter of time tell them to give you 20 of them as security. Right? So if they go at least you have the 20 men to fight with you. Or you can use the 20 men to offer as hostages to the Muslims to fix the deal you broke

00:32:23--> 00:32:26

right? So this is this is a highly clever.

00:32:28--> 00:32:28

Now

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

this is what he said to them.

00:32:35--> 00:33:14

Now they were they thought they thought this is very plausible. Okay. noraim help us get these 20 men. So what does him do? know him goes to the coresh. He says to the kurush that I just visited the Jews. And the Jews are talking about how they broke their peace treaty with the Muslims and how they entered this based on the promises that were given here. But just in case as an insurance policy, they want 20 hostages from the kurush look out for him his wedding it he didn't say 20 soldiers to help fight he said they want 20 hostages, so that they can give them to the Muslims to enter a new peace deal with them in case this matter fails.

00:33:15--> 00:33:52

Now what happens the Quraysh with a tribalistic, we never going to give up any one of us no one is up for being given up. No one is up for being put on the table. Is this what they asking for? Immediately this led this fuel distrust between the Quraysh and the operator and you can imagine the Quraysh now talking with bonavia and bunu. Now there has to come up with their answers and the auto fine is observing this. The hearts are becoming this united. But it didn't cause them to leave. It caused their patients levels to fall, but they were still at the party. With the disunity they were still there.

00:33:53--> 00:34:07

Now amidst all this, the work of no aim is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he is making out from the beginning. And he's increasing his Dora. As the days grow old and the Knights are born.

00:34:08--> 00:34:27

He sallallahu alayhi wasallam turns to Allah and he's begging from Allah and he's asking from Allah Yuji will mockery. Allah says in the Quran, who is the one who answers the door of the desperate one, when they raise their hands to align, ask him Allah meaning when they call out to Allah is Allah who answers the call of the desperate one?

00:34:29--> 00:34:35

So he's making this dua and Allah or can Allah who be my time in hoonah basura. Allah is all the way of what's happening.

00:34:37--> 00:34:45

So Allah answers the door of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah sends a cold, scathing strong wind,

00:34:46--> 00:34:48

which blew everything

00:34:49--> 00:34:51

before the trench

00:34:52--> 00:34:55

and nothing after the trench meaning the Muslims didn't feel anything.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

They felt warm and cozy, but the Quraysh

00:35:00--> 00:35:12

felt the brunt of it the hopper fan balloon NaVi, they felt the brunt of it. This wind became it blew their tents away, and they were left exposed to this wind that hits your bones

00:35:13--> 00:35:16

that causes you know frostbite.

00:35:18--> 00:35:29

This window came it switched off the fires. The wind was so cold it caused the horses and the animals to become irate and they started bumping into each other and trying to release themselves from from their pens.

00:35:31--> 00:35:48

This will disturb the cooking so their meal time was disturbed. It caused their bones to shiver. This was the reality of this went mmm cool to be says Rahim Allah this great Maliki scholar and explain of the Quran. He says that this happened only in the desert and it didn't affect the other side of the Muslims.

00:35:49--> 00:36:24

Allah subhanho wa Taala answers the door of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and another miracle arrives. How many miracles do we have? We have the miracle of the rock, we have the miracle of the pot and the bread oven that just kept giving. And now we have another miracle, the miracle of this wind that only affected the enemy and didn't touch the believers. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam always had good hope in Allah. And he had hoped that Allah would answer his door if something would happen. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam wanted to see what's happening. So he asked for a volunteer to go and verify, go on to the other side and see is anything different

00:36:24--> 00:36:24

happening.

00:36:26--> 00:36:28

And strangely, nobody caught up.

00:36:29--> 00:36:39

There were so exhausted, they were so tired brothers and sisters in Islam, mentally, emotionally, physically, they were just exhaust they were human beings.

00:36:40--> 00:37:01

Strangely, no one volunteered. So the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam picked one Hodeidah, he told her Eva, I'm picking you, you go. And he instructed him to the following number one, self, do not have yourself exposed. Number two, observe only do not act.

00:37:03--> 00:37:09

Because if you act, you will be caught, and you will be killed, and it will hurt us.

00:37:10--> 00:37:20

And number three, do not do anything, even if you're not caught, but do not do anything that will cause the Confederates to regroup against us.

00:37:21--> 00:37:38

Remember, we spoke about leadership set people up to succeed not to fail, but also on the team level? A team of people that you can delegate to with trust, you don't delegate to and then you busy worrying about will they do the job? Will they make a mistake? How will they do the job? Will they do it right? Will they be absent minded?

00:37:40--> 00:37:58

And then just come and say I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I didn't think I didn't think Can you can't succeed like that. So we as believers, we need to lift ourselves up brothers and sisters in Islam. We need to recognize our weaknesses. And we need to grow ourselves and develop ourselves for tomorrow if Allah needs service from us. And by the way, Allah always needs service from us. We need to be ready to act.

00:38:01--> 00:38:07

How they feel goes, Well, they first says, I went and it was as if I was walking on hot water.

00:38:08--> 00:38:31

safe from the cold. It was amazing. I didn't feel any of this cold. I could see them shivering. I could see the tents being blown. I could see everything happening. But as for me, I strangely felt warm. Who they for says I got so close that I even saw Abu sufian and he was shivering cold to the extent that he was warming his back on the fire.

00:38:32--> 00:38:42

And I had the ability that's how close I was to aim him with my arrow and shoot him and defeat him and kill him and remember boo Sophia was the leader of the kurush

00:38:44--> 00:38:49

he goes I was so ready to do it. But I remembered what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told me

00:38:51--> 00:39:17

this is what it's about. Follow the instructions. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, observe, don't act. So I held back. He came back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam with the news that our messenger of Allah glad tidings. I saw them and guess what, they have had enough, they are packing up, they are heading back and they are done with the siege.

00:39:18--> 00:39:19

Allahu Akbar

00:39:20--> 00:39:41

that marks the end of the battle of the Confederates meaning of the siege, not of the entire battle because blucora comes next, which we will discuss tomorrow in sha Allah after we go through our pitstop of lessons that we can be used from the portions of the story shared thus far. So with that brothers and sisters in Islam, the siege is over. And this

00:39:42--> 00:40:00

brings us to the end of our siege. We had five episodes where we will CGT in with the Battle of the Confederates and insha Allah, I pray that you benefited from the first pitstop or first set of lessons that were shared during the first pitstop and even the lessons in between that we share that we tried to

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

To bring about

00:40:01--> 00:40:37

and insha Allah when we come back tomorrow for Episode 11, I will complete the lessons based on what we've taken thus far. And then we will move on to the next part of the Sierra. And that is the matter of Bhanu korova. In fact, Pamela, they are some highlights from the story that I I'll share with you as well. As I said, we're not we're not going as you know, we're not going through this as a story narrative. I'm just picking on particular portions. But there's some highlights that even though we might not discuss, or we might not need in terms of the curriculum of blasts from the past, but it's worth mentioning because they are inspirational highlights or perhaps even tomorrow,

00:40:37--> 00:40:40

we will share those highlights from this particular

00:40:41--> 00:41:05

event in the spirit of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam I love you all for the sake of Allah, everything corrected is from Allah subhanho wa Taala alone and he is perfect and any mistakes are for myself and she upon and they seek Allah subhanho wa Taala has forgiven us, we Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us all, forgive our past, inspire our futures and make us the best that we can be mean you're blind I mean, until next time, salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
