As always, brothers and sisters in Islam We begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala. We praise Him we seek his assistance, we seek His guidance and we seek refuge in Him from the evil of ourselves and the adverse consequences of our deeds. We testify that whomsoever Allah subhanho wa Taala guides men can misguided whomsoever He must guides the man can guide and we request praises and blessings upon the final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I believe it is that there's no one worthy of worship besides one Allah and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is His messenger to everyone joining in via Facebook via YouTube via Twitter and also via clubhouse. I greet you with
the greetings of Islam and peace. The greetings of the people of paradise. Salaam, Allah alikum warahmatu, who are Baraka to me the Peace and blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala be upon you all. And welcome to episode number 11
of our season for blast from the past Sierra in the 21st century. Now obviously, since we've reached Episode 11, that naturally means that hunger has given us consistency thus far, it means that 10 days of Ramadan has passed and that means a third of Ramadan has passed to Pamela. And how fast has it come to a close and as is a principle in Islamic jurisprudence Subhan Allah a third is a lot of Phyllis was full of Kathy, as is attributed with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, of course in a different context, but it's become famous within Islamic jurisprudence that a third is a lot and as such brothers and sisters in Islam, we need to take a moment to revise our first 10 days,
look at our successes, and also understand where we might have slipped and try and make note of that and try and implement some changes to ensure that the next 10 days can be free of those slip ups. So at least we can reduce those slip ups in these 10 days and no doubt we need to use these 10 days well in preparation for the ultimate 10 days of Ramadan. And that is the last 10 nights of Ramadan, the best nights of the entire year and the nights, the nights which house the best night of the year. Laila through the night of power and decree and virtue. We asked Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept our first 10 to bless our next 10 and to make this Ramadan, the best Ramadan ever. Brothers
and sisters in Islam. In terms of our journey with blast from the past, this Season Season Four, we spent a good amount of time on the Battle of the Confederates. We were taking lessons within the narratives and then we also took a pitstop in which we focused in on
the benefits that we can take from the portions of the stories shared in the 21st century. And today also we want to do the same. We want to take a second pitstop and really focus on those lessons, because at Hamza, we've covered the narratives. So we want to focus on the lessons then we will move on to the next part of the Syrah and that is the expedition or the journey to Banu to burn up arriva right let's not forget benu carova and their role in this whole siege. Meaning as the CG began in what they did, as we've discussed recently, but before we quickly go into the pitstop lessons or our second pit stop, and take the lessons I promised yesterday that I want to share with you some
highlights. There's always highlights in the in the story have been well, mostly for the event of Bedouin mystery. There was a highlight which I think I was sharing with you a couple of highlights number one was the verses pertaining to
the law of karma, right how to attain rich
purity in the absence of water, right? So this revelation happened in association with the expedition of almost tallac. And that's the highlight. Okay. Another highlight from the expedition have been well metallic was the son of Abdullah ibn obey event cellule, the head of the hypocrites his son, he was different to his father. Right, his son was a believer in the truest sense. And his allegiance was to Allah and His apostle sallallahu alayhi wasallam before his father, and when he heard of his father's actions, he actually went to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and said, you know, if punishment is meant to be laid on my father, let me take care of that punishment
because indeed, he has a people who are sincere to Him, who are loyal to him. And if they see that it's me,
carrying out the consequence of his actions, that the situation will be lighter on them, as opposed to if it was your messenger of Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah, look at the face of this boy, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not permit him to do anything. But when they got to Medina, this boy blocked his father from entering Medina, he said, You will not enter until the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gives you permission. And remember, his father was telling the people do not spend on the mahadji rune so that they can leave the messenger and then we will banish them from Medina the honorable office meaning the answer, we will banish them Oh Ha Joon, and here
his own son is blocking him from Medina, saying, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has a greater right to Medina than you and you will not enter before he gives me permission. So these are and that's why I always encourage you that you know, we are not doing the narrative kind of program here, we are just tapping zooming in and zooming out. Why? Because in there, there are lessons that we can use today. But as for you, let this program also be an inspiration for you to pick up a Syrah book and read the finer details or read the gaps that
you know, there are then actually because of the nature of our program, in terms of the Battle of the Confederates, we do have these highlights, for example.
The Tafseer or the explanation of the middle Salah Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in the Quran, halfway through and a Salatu was Salam. Allah commands is in the Quran to protect and preserve our Salah, especially the middle prayer. Right now the screen is different here, what is meant by the middle prayer? And the answer was found in a statement of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam during the siege of the Confederates during this whole battle of the Confederates right when the siege happened, because remember we said on day two things were so intense that they missed four consecutive prayers, and he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in this narration
isn't Sahil Bihari in relation to the Battle of the trench? He said, may Allah fill their meaning the disbelievers fill their graves and homes with fire, just as they have kept us busy, away from the middle prayer until the setting of the sun. So some scholars looked into this and they said that this means that the middle prayer refers to Salah to Lhasa because he's referring to the prayer until the sunsets and the prayer that happens before the sunset is the answer prayer. This is a highlight that from this event, scholars have studied the Syrah and they've pulled this out and use it to explain what this verse in the Quran means and no doubt.
It is beneficial in terms of the science of the seer and understanding the Quran. Also from the highlights of this particular
siege, or this whole event of the Confederates is Sophia robiola, who remember earlier we said that one of the strategies used by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to ensure that everyone had the presence of mind to do what they needed to do. He
put into place a process to protect their families, so they didn't have to worry about their families. And part of this included that they were moved into the center of the city and they were put into a high fortress. Okay, so they were all kept there. Now, by no paraiba when they broke the security pact, they became creative. Remember, some narratives say they tried to send food and they started using brazen language with the Muslims or one of the other things that they did was they thought, let us enter Medina because we have access to Medina and let us take the wives and children of the Sahaba. Let's take the the women and children of the Muslims or let's take them and take them
captives take them as slaves. Let's take them. But to do this, that to make sure that there wasn't anyone guarding them, so they sent a spy. When the spy entered Medina and came close to them, Sofia robiola her and her, she
she sends this and she took note of this and she acted on it. She took a stick she went down the fortress and she struck this spy and the spy passed away. So Pamela, she struck him as he became diseased and obviously because he died he couldn't go
back. So when he didn't go back and look over understood that, you know what, there's men guarding them, it's not that they're all busy, they're at the trench. They also have a contingent of men guarding these women and children. So there's no point us going in because it will be a fear, of course, a fierce battle between us and them. So they decided to leave it, and avert the attempts to try and capture these women and children's panela. So she played a phenomenal role, right, and many people try to point fingers at Islam and, you know, Islam, keeps her female backward and keeps her covered and keep some modest and, you know, keeps her face covered, keeps her hair covered, tries to
keep her in a box in a glass box and lock the box. And, you know, know this, if you look at the Syrah, they were there, in fact, part of the highlights of this particular now that I mentioned it we should mention, one of the highlights of this battle is we could say that the first Muslim hospital came about right in season three, I discussed this concept of mercy to never we being like the Ministry of Health, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam used it to treat the injured when they came back from or hurt. But in terms of the Battle of the Confederates, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam asked for a tend to be erected by Masuda gnabry, to be specifically used
as a sickbay. Right, as a form of hospital. And this hospital was was under the stewardship of Lefevre. And I'm sorry,
she was a female. And she was in charge of it. In fact, when Saturday when more ad was hit by the arrow, and he was severely injured, he was sent from the place of the trench to this hospital. And he was treated under
leadership of this lady. So females had a role to play, but in a way that doesn't contradict the values of Islam. Right. So these are some of the highlights, brothers and sisters in Islam. Okay, let's quickly move on to the lessons. Now, as I said, we did cover lessons during
portions of, you know, during portions of the narrative, as well, like, for example, setting up people to succeed and not to fail. And this whole concept of leadership from the front, and leadership from the back, and so on, and so forth. But here is, here are some of
the lessons that were in my mind when these narratives in particular that were shared to you were chosen to be shared number one, brothers and sisters in Islam.
Always Be yourself. Be true to you. Do not try and be someone else. Because if you try and be someone you're not, you're going to be exposed one day, you will be exposed. Right? Like the hypocrites were exposed in this particular battle.
Right? The people of three men, they were exposed in this particular siege. The treacherous ones, they were exposed, as well. Right.
The the man of the Sahaba, the females, the male's the children of the Sahaba it was made manifest as well. And exposed well during this the siege, right? So always be true to who you are. If you speak, speak what you mean, right. It's important. If you give advice, be sincere in how you give advice.
Don't give advice. If someone comes to you sincerely for advice and you give advice in a way that has ulterior motives, you will be exposed
not to forget you sinful from the outset. But then you will be exposed and then you will be disgraced.
And if you true to who you are, then people will know you for who you are at the beginning. It's not a case of you being disgraced because people didn't know who you are. And if you are true to who you are in the positive sense according to the values of
the gods and values, then you will be celebrated. Like we celebrate the Sahaba radi Allahu anhu legendary, and we detest the hypocrites, and we detest the treacherous ones. So everyone is exposed in from them were people that were loved. And from them were people who were hated. Right, because of their actions. That because of what they did, no one put a gun to their head. They chose to be who they were.
And consequences of life are real. So that's number one. Number two, and we've said this before, do not allow people to walk in your head with their dirty feet.
Right? Remember the portion of crab is an asset. When he was visited by his cousins from Bonneville. They went to him even after they were banished and he knew they were banished. He knew that they tried to produce against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and miserably failed. And now they settled somewhere else by haber. And in fact, in some narratives, it is said that when the representative of one another went to camp, and they told him what they wanted to tell him to cause him to do
Leave to break the security pact with the Muslims and join them. cab said to them, that you are a cloud without any water. You come in the form of a cloud but you have no substance. But then what happened? He allowed them to walk in his head with their dirty feet and convinced him and what he did led to the entire downfall as we will see in the expedition of North Korea. So don't allow people to walk in your head with the dirty feet. someone tells you something, value your mind. value the trust with the people around you. Think about what that person said. Take Shura. We spoken about Shula this mutual consultation speak to the people who you trust people who love for you to succeed.
speak to them, ask them what's your view on this? This is what I heard. What do you think I should do? I'm thinking of doing this? Is this a good idea? This is from the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam and we have the best people. Number three, do not be naive. Not everyone who comes to you in sheep's clothing is sincere.
foxes they can come to you looking like sheep.
Allah homestand the foxes here but no no.
But bunu carova sodoma sheep, they since he advises the one was best for us. So looking good for the Muslims. And they failed miserably at the end. Allah Hollywood Allah Emery, Allah subhanho wa Taala is all capable, and he is the controller of his affairs. Number four, authenticate before acting. And we've discussed this well from season one to season four. This is the way of Mohammed Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam kind of feel rasulillah he can Allah configure rasulillah he also has in the messenger is a perfect example for authenticate, authenticate, even if it's from a sincere person, because the sincere person could have misunderstood the event. Sometimes we say no, I trust
this person with my family. I trust what he says okay, that's fine. But he could have been mistaken in what is understood is a human being not so at the end of the day. So please authentic and look at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
he authenticated, he sent a Zubair when he sent the seniors to further verify what they understood from what he saw.
Number five, set up people to succeed and not to fail. We spoke about this limit within the narratives, right? And we also see this in sort of to care for example, and many places in the Quran, when advices are being given even in a subtle way. And so to recap, today's Friday, we have weekly in the story of the people of the cave, when Allah subhanho wa Taala caused them to wake up and they were hungry. They said February I had a conviviality coma heavy, send someone with your money with 7% someone with the money to the Medina, right? Could you go back to the Medina, so that what they can buy food for us? What did they say? Did they just give the person money? Now they gave
you money? And they said well, he
said go and being conspicuous. Go and be
why no one should find no one should remember who you are. If you exposed then we all we all will be doing you will be doing that we will be doomed because we know why we run away from these people they wanted to kill us because we said La ilaha illa Allah because we want to worship one Allah they've waged war against us that's why we've run away so go ensconced on going and in conspicuous way purchase the product. The purest of product halaal look even telling him by that which is pure, because they are a people who practice Sure.
So they helping this person they setting him up for success.
That's what Cincy advisors do. And we see this, in how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advise people towards self advise them go and don't take whatever he told us today for making sure you don't act, don't do anything to cause them to regroup against us. And with emphasis I could have killed the goose up on that day but I remember what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and withheld and Subhan Allah at Fatima care, as we will see in sha Allah for Allah gives us life and time to get there. Abu sufian becomes a Muslim and then he fights in the Muslim armies of Abu Bakar and, and so on and so forth and they conquered places Subhan Allah, Allah had something else within
fabu Sophia, even though at this part of the Sierra when we read about Abu sufian you can't help but feel indifferent. But he's a companion. And we say what the other one
was Sophia is famous from all our seasons from the especially the season three of the caravan of better and then overheard. And now what's happened here with the Confederates.
Also brothers and sisters, in fact, from the lessons we learned,
that Allah subhanho wa Taala he brings help to his true slaves, and he answers the door of the oppressed. And we saw this in the miracles that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now miracles are for profits, but Allah subhanho wa Taala does honor his righteous people with what is known as karma. Right? A lot of them were to Pamela. Something happens in their life that's beyond their ability to understand how it happened. That's Allah honoring them. Right? So no matter how bad things get, don't leave the straight path. Right? Don't doubt your connection with the Lord of the worlds. Keep at it. Allah is all wise as to why
the help you seek is delayed.
And never forget. It was never bad for you. And it was always good for you. As we discussed during the Great slammed against Sharia law, and also brothers and sisters in Islam. We learned from the story that revelation comes before our thoughts before what we think is right before what everyone else thinks is right. Or is right. Because where do we get this from? From the discussion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the two sides.
Remember, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spoke to them about his pre agreed deal with the Hata van.
What did the two sides say? Before they spoke? They said O Messenger of Allah. Is this revelation from Allah? Or is this from your own personal reason? So they said first, why? Why did they say that? Because if it's from the revelation of Allah helaas, there's no need for anyone to think about anything. It's a done deal. revelation comes before what we think
what Allah decides comes before what we think even if we are united. And it's a theory it's a theory it's a theory. Because the, the the Nation of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, cannot unite upon misguidance. They will not unite against eponymous guidance. But they asked this is what Allah said, No, okay, if it's not what Allah said, The no messenger of Allah, is this something that you you love? You're doing it for you? We put a line in his messenger first. Are you doing it for us? The Prophet said, No, it's not a revelation. And I'm not doing it for me. I'm doing it for you. Then they wait into the discussion. And this is
the way of the believers. Right? And we touched on earlier about the power of do and we know the miracle of the wind King, so we should never leave to our brothers and sisters in Islam. No matter how tough it gets, no matter how long it lasts, never ever think I'm making the I'm making the wisdom from Allah. No,
no, no, no, no, no, keep on making sure you are never at a loss when you make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right. So the key point making into the siege lasted weeks, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continued with Torah, and when the how came, it was phenomenal. The next lesson, live for each other and not against each other. We get this from jabber on the other hand, when he went home to his wife, after he saw the stone tied to the stomach of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And he knew the Sahaba were hungry. So he said, Oh prophet of Allah come you and one or two of you, because that's what we can manage, live with each other. Unfortunately, today, brothers and sisters in Islam Subhanallah Chopin has Spanish against each other. something good happens to someone we feel sad about it. We wish it happen to us and not to them. You are allowed to wish it happened to you. But you should never wish that it didn't happen to them. Be happy for other people. jabiru was willing to give his food to the Prophet live for each other, for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala because Allah wants you to be selfless. What is food in front of the Messenger of Allah? What is
food in front of a human being? Allah has honored the human being and Allah has made food and wealth and every matter of this world subservient to the human being, how can I fight a human being for food or for wealth over something which Allah has made subservient to the human being whilst he honored the human being? So love for each other? We learned this from your brothers and sisters in STEM and this all together culminated this access. If one of these values that I'm sharing with you wasn't present, Allah knows best what what would have happened? Would they have succeeded?
I mean, think about this a siege against 10,000 people ready to annihilate you trained warriors, and you succeed. This shows you how the little things matter and they're not little things, the big things but today we think the little brothers and sisters in Islam so live for each other, be happy for each other. Somebody else buys a car, celebrate it like it's your car and make sure that Allah blesses that car or whatever they get. Some somebody else fails at something, treat it as it as if you failed and be there for them as you would love them to be there for you and see how you can help them get over this failure. That is the way of the believers and Mina Mina to both of whom earlier
Marula Bill maroof went whoa in there any longer. Well up Muna Sala oh you tuna zeca Well, ut aroona Allah Rasul Allah Subhana Allah, Allah,
You want mercy from Allah, you are mercy from Allah, love for each other. We need to do that brothers and sisters in Islam and this is a reminder to me first and foremost. Allah says the believers, the believing men and the believing women are helpers to one another. They are supporters to one another. They invite collectively towards good and they forbid collectively evil and they establish collectively the seller and they collectively give this occur and they collectively obey Allah and His messenger. Allah says they are the ones who Allah will continuously shower His mercy upon
the next lesson, learned that Allah is upon all levels now 10,000 men you thought annihilation balloon paraiba thought annihilation balloon now the thought annihilation. I'll have a fun came because they thought it's going to be annihilation. We will get our fruits the courage thought Enough is enough. This is the moment we're going to crush them and and and relieve them to the pits of history. Hmm.
But who is above everyone brothers and sisters in Islam?
Allah subhanho wa Taala and that's Allah subhanho wa Taala says, or della Hoon levena cafa Ruby on uv malami Anna Lou hi euro waka meanie
Gan Allah who co E and azeez those who just believe in their rage, not having obtained any good and sufficient was Allah for the believers? Yes worker fabula hephzibah. worker fabula he will keela worker for Allah who menial kita Allah was sufficient for the believers in this battle.
And Allah is Ever all powerful and Exalted in Might never forget this brothers and sisters in Islam, no matter who oppresses, you know above them is Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he is all capable.
Finally, brothers and sisters in Islam, understand
that Alliance is based on material benefit, there will always be fragile and weak alliances based on on business partnerships, based on just the marriages taking place, and not for the sake of Allah, the fragile and weak, they will only last as long as the interests last and that's politics, brothers and sisters in Islam. Talk about what did they politics? What is it about?
There's no friends or enemies in politics. There's friends if our interests are aligned, and we enemies if our interests are not aligned. That's how it works, very fragile.
And who decides what constitutes an interest being aligned and what constitutes an interest not being aligned, I can tell you now set the Quran in the sun.
Those are fragile partnerships. And that is why Allah has a place underneath his earth for those who love each other for the sake of Allah. Because that Alliance is one booth one enough
that there's no material benefit, financial standing or material well being we're trying to generate or create here in terms of us being together. I am I love to visit you. Because for the sake of Allah, I feel my Eman increased when I visit to you, my Muslim brother, my Muslim sister. And together, we raised the flag of the heat and you feel the same towards me. And for these people. Allah has a place underneath his arm from the day of Ghana. So yes, whilst truth versus falsehood is one religion. But the unity of falsehood is a very weak and fragile one. so fragile that it took one of them becoming a Muslim to go back and wreak havoc between them.
So Han Allah. So those are the lessons immediately we can take from this brothers and sisters in Islam. And as we said, we want to move on to the expedition of canoe korova. We're going to take a bit more time today, so that we can at least be true to the title of today's episode because the title of today's episode is an introduction to biochar rover. So Al Hamdulillah the CG is over. The non Muslims are returning back to where they came from.
empty handed Yes, did they lose definitely. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the believers come back to Medina exhausted, wanting to put their feet down their weapons down. And so they do.
But then what happens? gibreel arrives and gibreel says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are you putting your weapons down on messenger of Allah? Allah He the angels haven't put their weapons down. So get going with those that are with you to buy new coryza For indeed I am going ahead of you to shake their fortresses and create fear in the hearts panela the habit jabril beam okie you Bri went with his contingent of angels rushing there. He says I'm ahead
Have you don't delay follow me they no doubt they will commander but Allah subhanho wa Taala the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam immediately commands the Sahaba to get up and get moving and he says to them, no one from you should pray Salah to the answer accepted by Luke or Eva.
Leah you Selena hadn't sat us relax Illa if you burn your current
Well, there's a there's a story here. Let's take the story quickly we can take the lessons later. What happens the Sahaba get going. As they get going, they see the sunsetting which means that a sort of time is ending. So they said let's stop to preset up to the answer. So our group said no, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said don't pray Salah to the answer until you get to belcarra
the others have said no Salah has been set at fixed in prescribed times. We have to pray before sunset as what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he said it to mean go as quickly as possible to Balu Cordova and don't delay.
He was just trying to push us to go he wasn't saying that stood out to the outside is delayed until you get to Bhanu Cordova today. So they had a difference of opinion. So some pray they are on time and others didn't they prayed when they got to Bhanu Cordova after sunset, and we'll discuss that in the lessons because when the when they met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam It was the first thing they asked him the Messenger of Allah this is what happened. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not fall to any of the two groups, but there's a deeper discussion you will take during the lessons inshallah. So they rushed to Bucharest, he said that the messenger sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam left for 3000 men 36 of them horsemen. And what did they do? They went and laid siege upon the treacherous ones, just like the Confederates laid siege on Medina by no Araiza was surrounded. And some sources say they were surrounded for 25 nights.
Why? Well, they were ready for the Muslims to be killed and taken as slaves. They wanted to go from behind and take the Muslim women and their children as slaves. They broke a security pact. They weren't a problem that shouldn't have been a problem.
So they deserve everything they're going to get.
People families and wives and children here that they were willing to put on the line and none of their women stop them from doing it. They allowed them to be treacherous.
So when the punishment falls, it falls on them as a community.
Anyway, the siege happens, it gets too much for blucora they start feeling the effects of a siege, no food, no water medicine, so on and so forth. So they send a message out and they say can we request Lu Baba even abdomen please send us lubob so we can discuss a solution. We are comfortable discussing the solution with Luba. Now it is said that this was due to Lou barbers allegiance with Bhanu Pereda before he became a Muslim. So they had an allegiance they had a relationship before Luba became a Muslim. So they felt let's we comfortable with Luba, we know him he knows us. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam sent rhubarb. Now obviously Lu Baba knows the plan of the
Muslims. He's not supposed to disclose it. And lo Baba goes there. And Luba sees the state of the women, they're crying, he sees the state of the children they upset, they're crying, they're hungry, and so on and so forth. So they asked Luba that listen, what do you think we should do? What is what's going to happen? What's going to happen, we give up, we surrender, what's going to happen? And Lu burba.
It's human nature. You know, the Sahaba. They were, you know, as you can see, success story after success with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi. wasallam sends them in, and they succeed. And we spoke about this yesterday that you lift yourself up to a position where you do more right things than wrong things. And this was the case with Uber, but he had more right things, the wrong things, but a human being will slip up somewhere along the line. And we don't forget that we're humans. But for as we said in yesterday's lesson, it shouldn't be a case where you always slipping up the norm is that you slipping up. That's not we have a belief. The believer is he slips up sometimes. And when he
does, he holds himself accountable, because he holds himself to higher standards. As we will see what rhubarb rhubarb is an answer to them. He did this. He took his his hand and he plays he he ran it across his neck.
Right? He ran it across his neck, which means what? It's going to be a slaughter.
If you surrender, there's no mercy that you're going to see for what you guys did. Now he wasn't supposed to release this information.
So he left and when he left, he immediately knew what he did was wrong and that he isn't.
He knew it, but he gave away a sensitive secret.
But he held himself to account.
And even he shared one of the writers on the Syrah. He says that Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed about this matter, about Luba, a verse in Surah, two and fell, in which Allah says yeah, you are Latina, amarula tahunan
la hora Sula with a Hulu magnetical. Wanting to element that oh you who believe do not betray Allah and His messenger or betray the trust whilst you know of the consequences.
So it is said that it was revealed about him now Luba immediately went back to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and immediately said What happened? He immediately said, What happened? And he went, and he tied himself to a tree beside machine to nibble
on a tree that is part of machineable Allahu Allah, this, when you look at
the narration about this, you you know, both understandings come about, meaning a tree that was part of most you will never we In any case, right, we know the magic number, we had pillars, and these pillars were made up of tree stumps. Meaning, meaning the tree stump, right, they made up these pillars, and also there were trees, around the masjid, and trees that were part of the masjid as Medina was known for today trees.
He went to one of these pillars, and he tied himself to these pillars for six nights. And he said he will not untie himself until Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives him. Right? And his wife used to go It is reported his wife used to go and untie him so he could make will do and pray Salah then she would have to tie him again. And this is how it was until Allah forgave him.
And Allah revealed what a Haruna uttara will be the loopy him hello to me and slightly here for a year as Allah who a year to lay him in the lava for him. This isn't sort of to tober But yeah, you'll Idina Avenue, lead to hula, that isn't suitable and fair. And the two sewers in the Parana next to each other and in fact, joined to each other.
The meaning of this verse is Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed and there are others who have acknowledged the essence, they had mixed a righteous deed with another deed that was bad, perhaps Allah will forgive them and turn to them in forgiveness. Indeed, Allah is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful. And when this verse was revealed, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam knew it was about to Berber and he smiled, and he told us how Bandha so how about rush to lubob and said untie yourself. Allah is forgiven, you know, barber said no, I won't untie myself until the messenger antis me. And then the next morning when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came for fudger he
untied now today, if you go to the Rosa, right the Rosa in Machito gnabry. Right The Rosa which is the place between the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is home, I show his home and
and his member. This is known as the roba. There's a pillar there is a pillar there. If you look for the fourth pillar from the member, and the second pillar from the grave,
you will see in Arabic it's written on the pillar, or stornetta tober. The pillar of October. That's what's written on it.
This is the place the pillar that Luca tied himself. This is just a bit of history. We're have general knowledge for you in case one day you go to Medina and you have a look at this police and you read the sign you know what happened, why this pillar is called what it's called. Now the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam said about Luba but when he went in tight himself, the messenger said, if he had come to me, I would have asked Allah to forgive him. But now he has done what he has done. I cannot untie him until Allah forgives because he's tied himself and said I won't leave until Allah forgives me to handle Allah. So this is the story of Alibaba. Now, from this
discussion, we'll be doing Bhanu paraiba and Luba Balu. korova understood that helaas our fate is sealed in whatever happens is going to be punishment. So they sent a request and said we will surrender ourselves. However on condition that sad even more eyes decides what the punishment should be when we say seniors have cancer so they thought you know what, so let's add even more as he decided he will be lenient with us because we have history together. Now remember that you are sad. Yesterday we discussed it when he was hit with the arrow he said yeah Allah, if you if you if this if this but you know, he said Allah subhanho wa Taala if this battle is meant to end and don't cause
me to die until I see until you grant me pleasure with regards to blucora because he knew what bunu Korea did and he went and witnessed it himself that we spoke about it yesterday in terms of the executive order.
inshallah, you can go back to yesterday's lesson to see the exact way he made but from it was this that he asked Allah to keep him alive until his heart is pleased with regards to the treachery of abou of Bhanu Kaurava obviously Balu Perez I didn't know this they were basing it on these worldly or previous worldly associations. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam sent for for sad we were sad. Remember he was injured? He was at the 10th Hospital. Why must you remember we said was brought on a donkey as some narration said he was carried on a donkey from Medina to rule and said rules that only capital punishment will apply to burn forever for many reasons
Easily number one, they treachery. Number two, they happiness for the Muslim women and men to be taken as slaves and captured behind the Muslim armies back.
And also number three, if sad just ruled that they be banished like the previous cousins, then they will go settle somewhere like Bonneville did. And they will become a problem for us tomorrow like banana there was they went and brought an army of 10,000. This wasn't something that Muslims thought about when they vanished, but who knows if the last time so he felt there's nothing that is appropriate, except capital punishment, they should face the penalty for their choices for their actions for the harmful choices that they were making. And also, but another and others should learn from this,
that they shouldn't mess around and instigate the trouble in the region.
Now, brothers and sisters in Islam, there's many lessons that we can take from this. So we will end here for today and inshallah, we will dedicate tomorrow's lessons or sorry, tomorrow's lesson to discuss the lessons that we can deduce from the story of Bulu kureta that helped us today in the 21st century, insha Allah as always, I love you all for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and I acknowledge and
openly state that everything correct is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he's perfect and any mistakes are from myself and she upon and I seek Allah subhanho wa Taala has forgiven us, brothers and sisters in Islam. As we said at the beginning of today's episode, a third of Ramadan has gone. ask Allah again, to accept what has passed and to bless and inspire what remains we all aspire to, well, what Allah take us from strength, to strength, and grant us all better than we dream of in both worlds. I mean, Europe will alameen until tomorrow, may Allah preserve us in his obedience. I mean salaamu Alaikum wa rahmatullah who overcut
