We are certainly Emory. While Dr. melissani of Cabo Cowley, we begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala. We praise Him we seek his assistance and guidance and we seek refuge in Him from the evil of ourselves and the adverse consequences of our deeds. We testify the room server He guides nonconvex guide, and whomsoever He Miss guides then can guide and we request praises and blessings and salutations upon the final messenger of Muhammad Ali Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I bear witness that there's no one worthy of worship besides one Allah, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says messenger to our brothers and sisters in Islam, Salaam Alaikum wa rahmatullah wa

00:01:17--> 00:01:31

barakatu made the Peace and blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala be upon you all. And welcome to episode number 20 of our field cough sera series, which is in its season four plus from the past Sierra in the 21st century.

00:01:33--> 00:01:48

Yesterday, we capital off the expedition of haber. And all we had left to do was to take the lessons that we can benefit from that particular event and

00:01:49--> 00:02:02

event events rather, from the era of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in terms of our day and age in the 21st century, and inshallah we will kick off things doing that. And then thereafter, we'll move on to the next

00:02:03--> 00:02:18

event in the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, as is the title that you can see on your screens, the expedition, or the the compensation or the armor, right, the ombre trip that occurred as a result of

00:02:19--> 00:02:48

the Treaty of alhuda, which we covered a few days ago. So first things first brothers and sisters in Islam in terms of the lessons that we can take from the expedition of a hybrid or in terms of the the segments that we chose to share, right and the curriculum that we have, and the scope that governs our sessions together, is first and foremost the importance of the hour, and calling to Allah subhanho wa Taala and inviting to Islam.

00:02:50--> 00:03:10

I don't know how to express this well enough given how important and act it is, in the life of a Muslim brothers and sisters in Islam. We learned this from the instruction that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave to Ali rhodiola. And when he said to him that if Allah guides one person,

00:03:11--> 00:04:00

if Allah subhanho wa Taala guides one person through you, then this is better meaning to Islam than this is better than 100 red head, camels. And no doubt he said this to him after he instructed him to give that hour to call the Jewish settlers, the Jewish inhabitants of Heber to Allah subhanho wa Taala first worship Allah and to accept Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as the messenger. And then if they refuse and choose to oppose, then he would lead on the attack. So his command was to call them to Allah first. And we've highlighted in previous episodes, that Islam was spread through the hour and not through the sword. But focusing on another element of this lesson brothers and

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

sisters in Islam is this concept of that hour. Right? It's this concept of the hour. Yes, Islam was spread through the hour, but that hour was done. People were called to the justice and mercy of Islam. People were taught about the teachings of Islam, about the beliefs of Islam. And remember, we said one of the benefits after her davia was that the Muslims could mix with the non Muslims and through mixing with the non Muslims and non Muslims could see firsthand what Islam is, and what Islam isn't through the speech of the Muslims, and before the speech of the Muslims through the practice of the Muslims because the speed of light is faster than and quicker than the speed of

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

sound. And naturally, that means that people will see you before they hear you. And if they don't like what they see, then they probably won't lend you their ear to listen to what you have to say. So Islam spread through the believers mixing with the disbelievers. And in a world today, where many Muslims live as Muslim minorities, they have a unique opportunity

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

Ella kalama Tila to raise the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the places that they live in, in the way they behave first and foremost, and then when that interest is piqued, then the way that they speak and what they call to. This is our brothers and sisters in Islam. Now you and I know that there's no prophet to come after Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is the final messenger. He is the seal of a prophet, and the responsibility of looking after the legacy of all the prophets and messengers, the legacy that was carried on the shoulders by themselves, and then transferred from the shoulders to the shoulders of another person to the shoulders of another person to the shoulders

00:05:40--> 00:06:17

of another person, all the way up to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, this rich legacy, the greatest legacy which the world has ever seen, this legacy, after Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had to definitely go somewhere, because the battle between the between the truth and falsehood continues to exist. Right? So if this is the case, then what happens to the guidance of mankind? And who takes on the role of calling them towards guidance and helping them maintain the guidance? Who does this? If there's no profits to come? And the simple answer brothers and sisters in Islam is yourself and myself, meaning the followers of Muhammad salallahu alayhi wa sallam for

00:06:17--> 00:06:36

Allah subhanho wa Taala, he transferred this legacy from the shoulders of Muhammad, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam, to your shoulders, and my shoulders collectively, it's no more a legacy that will be carried by one man, but rather a legacy that will be carried by men and women together of an entire nation. So

00:06:37--> 00:07:22

we have to really sit down and ask ourselves about this, that, you know, what favours are we doing ourselves by being in the service of mankind? And the service of Islam for the sake of Allah? subhanho wa Taala? What favours are we doing to ourselves by being in the service of the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam in the service of the legacy of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam, when lasted our neighbor here about the justice and mercy of Islam, when last did we think about them, and their salvation, when last we raise our hands and make dua that the neighbors on our street, you know, accept Islam, and Allah opens up opens for us the opportunity to

00:07:22--> 00:07:54

to invite them to Islam and so on and so forth? When Lastly, we do that, when is that a concern? And when will it be a concern? If we are carrying the legacy of Muhammad Sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam collectivity, then when should this become a concern? Right? No doubt he should have he should be our concern from the outset. And if it isn't, then I'm asking, when will it be a concern? Now I know that, you know, this concept of our calling to Allah, there's rules and regulations, it has to happen with knowledge. But Alhamdulillah, we have a situation today whereby

00:07:55--> 00:08:25

we have knowledge accessible to us in structured programs as well, on the internet, on demand as well, it allows us to learn the do's and the don'ts and how to actually go about it. And there's a wonderful, free resource. Free doesn't mean cheap, by the way, a free quality, structured resource that you all can benefit from. And that is a resource. That is website based, it is called.

00:08:26--> 00:08:49

It is called the messengers of peace Academy, the messengers of peace Academy, or m o p academy.org. Google it, messengers of peace Academy, it's a dedicated program to teach Muslims how to do that. Okay. And it's free, it's on demand. It's authentic, the information is authentic. It's,

00:08:50--> 00:09:28

you know, I approve it, I endorse it. And it's definitely something that creates a situation whereby we can't, we can't offer an excuse, we don't have an excuse. Nobody can say, Well, I wanted to, but I didn't know how to, or I didn't know where to go to learn how to hamdulillah here's an opportunity for you. So brothers and sisters in Islam, we have to be true to the legacy of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and have this concern for those who are not upon the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, that they eventually come upon his way we make dua to Allah to enable us to make as a means for our neighbors for our colleagues, that they also experience the justice and

00:09:28--> 00:09:59

mercy of Islam and pass away upon a man and then they are able to enter Paradise. So this is the first lesson the lesson of the hour. The second lesson brothers and sisters in Islam is of course, the leadership of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam because, you know, throughout the CETA, we speak about his leadership, but also throughout the CETA. We see different ways that He manifests his leadership, right? He makes his leadership clear to us. He teaches us a leadership approach. And here we see some Hanalei different way that he used because when the Muslims were tired, they were exhausted. They both had been through a lot.

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

We're talking about 10 days to open a fortress and there's so many fortresses then 14 days for another, and so on and so forth. And now people were sleep deprived and they were hungry and so on and so forth. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes with this tactic by saying Tomorrow, I will hand the flag over to someone who loves Allah and loves his Rasool and Allah is those who love Him or vice versa a line is also love him, and he loves a line is Russell, you can imagine what happened to all the fatigue, to all the tiredness to all this desire to, to rest and to sleep it, it dissipated immediately, and they slept in a restful way ready to wake up and find out who this be,

00:10:37--> 00:11:14

they were excited, right and at fudger, we see we discussed what happened, they all surrounded the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, waiting to receive the banner hoping that it would be them. So they found this, this this rejuvenation, they found the strength Subhana Allah so brothers and sisters in Islam, as a leader, and all of us in some capacity, we are leaders, we need to be creative in how we breed motivation into those that Allah has placed within our sphere of influence in how we speak to them, understanding their demeanor, what works, what doesn't work. Some people are demotivated if you instruct them, but they're motivated if they encouraged whereby they are

00:11:14--> 00:11:25

making the decision themselves. And I'm sure there's mothers listening in and you can understand this with your children, that you have some children Subhanallah if you tell them do this, they do it. And some of the children if you tell them do this, they don't really follow through.

00:11:26--> 00:11:59

Right, it doesn't create, you know, the message doesn't clock with them. Or it's just their demeanor. They are people who feel motivated internally to follow through when they are encouraged to do it. And then they make the decision themselves. Right. And this is not just with children. This is with adults as well. People have different personality types. They have demeanors they have different ways through which they become motivated through which they lose motivation. And a leader consciously is aware of these things. And he manages the situation in the best way. So this is first hand leadership guidance from the best of all people Mohammed Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:11:59--> 00:12:36

The one who Allah said Nakata Candela confy rasulillah. He also told Hasina, that indeed in him is the best example. When brothers and sisters in Islam the third lesson is life is a test. Life is a test hybrid teaches us that life is a test but the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala is evernia. Just following on from what we just discussed, the Muslims will put to the grind, right, we spoke about being sleep deprived, or being hungry about, you know, feeling like you in this situation that has no light at the end of the tunnel, because it's fortress after fortress, and they barricaded in and they locked in and is difficult to get through. And they have aerial aerial advantage and so on and

00:12:36--> 00:13:09

so forth. But then the help came, Allah chose early for the banner to be given to and Allah chose it to be the means to which Allah subhanho wa Taala is help and assistance will come. So life will put us through the grind. We don't ask Allah for it, we ask Allah to save us from it. But if Allah subhanho wa Taala puts us through it, we never ever forget that if Allah takes us to it, he will take us through it. It's just a matter of time, it is just a matter of time. And then we have to be patient. We have to do everything in our capacity. We have to bring ourselves together, we have to bring ourselves forward, we have to do what we're supposed to do. We have to keep it together and

00:13:09--> 00:13:51

not lose it because it's only a matter of time. Okay, so this is the third lesson that labor teaches us and of course, we've taken this lesson one we discussed the Battle of the Confederates and better and so on and so forth. Fourthly, brothers and sisters in Islam, we learn how honorable le robiola, who is and how honorable he is, across the beliefs of the Muslims across the beliefs of the people upon the Sunnah for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam praised him in this manner through speech and through action and the Sahaba the other way around him to take note of this and they honored him and from them was Abu Bakar and Omar and Othman, radi Allahu anhu Marine and Aisha radiallahu anha,

00:13:51--> 00:14:03

and all the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and thus it is totally incorrect and false. And it is quite frankly lies when we have a group of people say that,

00:14:04--> 00:14:48

that the Sahaba disrespected Ali rhodiola and after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam praised him and raised his mentioned this is absolutely false. And for those who finish reading the Sierra Go on, and read the history and biography of Abubakar rhodiola and and then armor rhodiola and and see for yourself, see how they honored him see how they respected him see how they saw tissue aura, see how they sought him to be a judge at the time of Mr. macabre when he asked me to be a judge as well under a meaning within the leadership of Mr. Ravi Allah and so Allah who is honored and until the day of gamma, also brothers and sisters in Islam, we learned that you can accept gifts from non

00:14:48--> 00:15:00

Muslims. And we learned this from how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam accepted the sheep that was slaughtered for him. Yes, it was poisoned, but he didn't know at the time, and he accepted it. And so we learned that we can accept give

00:15:00--> 00:15:12

From non Muslims, as long as those gifts don't stem from idolatry practices, the Jews were the people of the book they would slaughter for Allah subhanho wa Taala and a Shea bisher Youth Corps as we say commonly,

00:15:13--> 00:15:47

if we say something, then we should say something associated with it as well we can, or maybe it's advised to say something associated with it, when we talk of the Jews slaughtering for Allah. Then also we learn from this that the slaughter of the People of the Book is halal for the Muslims for they slaughtered it, they prepared it and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam accepted it and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ate from it. Now obviously, there's rules and regulations such as the fact that it must be slaughtered, and you need to inshallah, go back to your knowledgeable, responsible local Islamic scholarship and ask them to

00:15:48--> 00:16:25

touch on this point, further, the whole point of us living in a Muslim minority and the rulings of eating the slaughter of the People of the Book in the society that we live in, because no doubt the scholars have greater insights because they are much aware of the more peculiar practices when it comes to the slaughter. So I'm only speaking generally, not specifically to your case, generally, the slaughter of the People of the Book is permissible for us. And we learned this from the events at hiber. Also, accepting gifts from non Muslims is permissible as long as those gifts don't stem from idolatry practices, or those gifts are not something which is stolen, or acquired through

00:16:25--> 00:17:01

oppression, and so on and so forth. But those are exceptions to the general rule. The general rule is that we can't accept gifts from non Muslims. Number six, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam again, he experiences another miracle, proving that he is the Prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this these concepts I share with you concepts that prove her that he is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This falls under a study known as de la la nouba de la Nobu, the science of prophethood. And this was a miracle that Allah gave him because the meat remember the meat spoke to him, sal Allahu Allah, he was saying that he that the meat was poisoned, and thus the Prophet

00:17:01--> 00:17:22

sallallahu alayhi wasallam stopped everyone from partaking of it. And we discussed what he did thereafter when he gathered the juice of favor. Number seven brothers and sisters in Islam from the lessons of labor is that it is not about the size of the task, and it's not about the size of the army, or the skill of the team or the intelligence of your employees.

00:17:23--> 00:18:01

It's about to feel and guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala, who must understand this hybrid was considered a safe place, it was considered a place that was that could not be penetrated. It was considered a place with a formidable army, it was considered a place with an equipped army, the weapons were at a high caliber, and in quantities that were respected amongst all that envied haber. It's not about how big the enemy is. It's not about how equipped the enemy is. It's not about how big you your army is, your team is how intelligent you are team is what skills you have in your team. It's not about that. It's all about guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala tofik. from Allah

00:18:01--> 00:18:40

subhanho wa Taala. And how many times come in fee it in Cali Latin, a holla, but fietsen kathiresan Bismillah as Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in his book, how many a small group of people overcame a larger group of people with the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We saw this at Oh, whoa, sorry, at bother or hurt, you could say it was a draw. But before the events change, you could see the small group of Muslims pushing back the great deal of disbelievers. We saw this at the Confederates as well, the 10,000 people in front of a minority, but Subhanallah they couldn't breach that trench, and eventually they went back empty handed. So we see that hybrid as well. The Arabs were all

00:18:40--> 00:19:09

interested in this battle. In fact, you can definitely say that they were people who thought this was the end of the Muslims, this would be their downfall, this would be the heat that people were waiting for. But Subhanallah they shocked the entire region. And as I said, This led to total isolation of the Quraysh because the Muslims gained the respect of the region and the people, they they enter alliances for different reasons. And not all the Arabs had the the, the religious

00:19:10--> 00:19:51

issues with the Muslims, right. They couldn't care less. Some of them were motivated by wealth. They didn't care what you worshipped and who you worshipped and how you worshiped. They didn't care about this, like we spoke about a lot of fun. They were mercenaries they only cared about what pay you put on paper or you put on the table. So different people then started entering into treaties and security agreements with the Muslims trade agreements with the Muslims because haber Subhan Allah with the tofi cough Allah subhanho wa Taala was conquered by the Muslims a feat that nobody dreamt of even attempting before. So this is what I have to share with you in terms of the lessons from the

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

Battle of hate, but now moving swiftly on. I want to discuss the schedule, a new segment and that is the scheduled Amara trip or

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

The compensation vary from road trip.

00:20:04--> 00:20:38

It's also called umbrella to cover and ombre to sell. So I'm going to cover the compensation Harry O'Meara trip ombre to sala de Amara of Allahu davia, meaning as a result of the Treaty of alpha davia. So just to refresh your memories when we discussed the expedition of academia, remember we said that part of the agreement was that the Muslims went back that year, and they came back the following year for the armor, right, so this is known as I'm not to cover that they weren't already in Iran and they had to come out of Iran. So now they have to make up for that. Because it's incomplete for Allah subhanho wa Taala says we're a team will have Jota and Rotella and all the

00:20:38--> 00:21:08

scholars agree that if a person starts or enters into a harem, and they don't complete the Haram then they have to go and complete study they don't complete the Amara or the Hajj, then they have to go back and complete it once they start, it's something that you have to complete and if you prevented from completing it, then it's something you should look at completing it when you can complete it. So it's been given this name omitted to cover and under to associate all refers to the scheduled Amara trip that was scheduled at the time of alpha davia. So in Canada the following year

00:21:09--> 00:21:12

Subhanallah you might say how fast does time fly?

00:21:13--> 00:21:52

To Pamela right. Obviously, we are jumping forward. But you can only imagine for the benefit at a time when there was Baraka in time. But you can only imagine so Pamela how long that year was for them. Because they wanted Irma the year before and you we've already discussed how emotional that was and it didn't happen. So finally this comes. We'll look at that comes the appointment arrives in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commands, everyone who witnessed by Ridwan the pledge of allegiance to the Shahada, which we discussed in earlier episodes, which was known as the pledge of Aragon, all of them who were part of that pledge, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanded

00:21:52--> 00:22:08

them to get ready for Amara and to go out for Amara, and along with them, they took other people who wanted to come who weren't part of the Umrah the previous year. And obviously, the only people absent then were those who, meaning from the pledge of the one, the only people who were absent were those who passed away

00:22:10--> 00:22:45

during the course of the year, like those who passed away the labor, for example, the 15 to 20 minutes. So, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he goes out and it he said that he went with a group of people, a caravan numbering 2000 men, and this excludes the women and the children. Right, so the woman, women and children with them, but the men were 2000 in number, and this was in the seventh year after his era after high bar, but towards the end of the year in Canada, and he travels with it, he said, 60 camels and 100

00:22:47--> 00:23:30

horses, Allah Ireland, it is said that he had 200 horsemen. So in terms of these numbers, these are approximations, but also the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took a lot of weaponry. He didn't just take the swords that would be in its sheath, right in its cover, as was part of the agreement of alhuda. He took her he took with him extra weaponry he took with him body armor. He took with him shields. Why? Because remember, we said, it's not from the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be naive. He was never naive, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he had to deal with the treacherous Jews that were settled around Medina, and they were from the People of the Book. So can

00:23:30--> 00:23:37

you imagine the Quraysh who had you know who who had issues with the Muslims? You can imagine brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:23:38--> 00:23:51

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not going to give them the benefit of the doubt that you know, if we have a treacherous behavior from the people of the book, then what about the Quraysh? Yes, we have disagreement, but we shouldn't be naive. So they

00:23:52--> 00:24:33

loaded their weapons. And they went out now so panela the sight of this caravan of 2000 people excluding the men and women, so more than 2000 people moving across the deserts of Arabia was just phenomenal. And remember, they enter into a harem close to Medina just outside Medina. So they walking announcing the tel via le bake Allahumma bake this is a new Tobia, this is a Toby of tawheed this is not a Tobia, which the Qureshi is to do they had to tell BIA, a bake of idolatry whereby they associated partners with Allah in in the in the worship, in even their statement, the statement that you would recite when you are intending pilgrimage, so they are moving in these numbers

00:24:33--> 00:24:48

announcing the Tobia, it is said it is said that whenever they passed a place the people would come out and watch the caravan passing by that was such a phenomenal you know, awesome Subhanallah sight. And

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

when they got to the halifa as I said they enter into a harem the people of Medina get into your harem at a place known as La for now it's part of Medina but before it was outside of Medina, no doubt

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

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said Muhammad ibn muslimah to lead the caravan on his horse. So Mohammed bin muslimah

00:25:08--> 00:25:46

is robiola and he's leaving it the Quraysh knew who he was. They knew his skill sets. And you know, when the news reached the Polish because as you know, everyone had scouts scouting the scenes when the quraishi scouts informed them of what's happening and when they heard what's happening. Immediately they panic they said Subhanallah this was not part of the deal. Why are they coming with all this weapons? What do they want? If they moving with this type of weaponry? That means are they really coming for Amara? Are we back at square one where we were last year? Now last year, no doubt the Muslim meaning the Muslims wanted to ride with the Porsche. We're being difficult. But you can

00:25:46--> 00:25:50

imagine they think that no, they coming but they're going to surprise us and they're gonna overtake Mecca.

00:25:52--> 00:25:55

So when the crash came from off this they

00:25:56--> 00:26:10

chose McCroskey bin Huff's. And they sent him with a few of their delegates. And they said, Go and meet with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Now this journey, last week's brothers and sisters in Islam, but finally the meeting happened and this was around eight miles from Macau and the Muslims reached

00:26:13--> 00:26:18

around eight miles at this, this valley around eight miles from Makkah.

00:26:19--> 00:26:41

The delegates from the Caribbean met with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they said to him, that you know, you're a trustworthy person, we know you to be a trustworthy person before you quote, you came with this new court, and we only know you to be trustworthy after you came with this new court. Okay. All right. So imagine they are acknowledging the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is trustworthy, if he's trustworthy, why don't you believe his message?

00:26:43--> 00:27:16

If you know he doesn't lie, and he's not treacherous, and is calling you to Allah? Why don't you believe his message. And this shows you brothers and sisters in Islam, it's a sickness of the heart, where deep down the courage knew that his message is true. But they were stubborn. They were egotistic. They wanted to die, by hook or by crook upon the way of their forefathers and not forsake it. And no doubt they were attached to their wealth, because they saw through it, the loss of leadership, by giving by falling under the governance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so that all these worldly aspirations serve them of the path of the truth.

00:27:17--> 00:27:45

The acknowledging we know you to be trustworthy, this is who you were before, and we know you to be this person after. So then he said to him, we did not expect you to be treacherous. We had an agreement, we told you what type of weapons you could come with, and you have a lot of weapons and that you can enter Mecca with these weapons. And you know, the sanctity of Makkah, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam listened. And then in response when they finished, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said, we will only enter Mecca upon our agreement.

00:27:47--> 00:27:50

Nothing more, nothing less. Who said the agreement has changed?

00:27:51--> 00:27:53

Have we entered Macau yet? We haven't.

00:27:54--> 00:28:33

And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam commanded everyone to drop their weapons outside Macau, just there. And he commanded Mohammed bin muslimah, to guard them with his horsemen until they received instruction. So clearly, you can see that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is bringing in contingencies that those who want to attack the Muslims, they should know that Muslims are armed, and their arms are namaka and with them are hundreds of people on horses, meaning they can ride into a car very fast, this weapon can be delivered to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam at any time. So in case you have any ulterior motives, think again, this is genius from the

00:28:33--> 00:29:16

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, he implemented caution he took the means, and then he moved the caravan minus the horsemen that regarding the weapons through the mountain passes towards the Kava towards Mecca, Allahu Akbar, Allah He, if you just think you need to take a moment, to think about the feelings, to think about the emotions, to think about these human beings. This was the home the Kaaba was the norm. They saw it every time they woke up, they turned the corner and there was the Kaaba, then they were banished from this land, and they were sanctioned from this land, and then their wealth was taken. And now finally, finally, finally, seven years after banishment almost

00:29:16--> 00:29:18

eight years, we are here.

00:29:21--> 00:29:32

It's amazing. It's like someone who in our day and age, misses MCI misses MCI and wants to go and wants to go and wants to go, and they can't afford it. And finally they can afford it and they make the trip.

00:29:33--> 00:29:34

Can you imagine

00:29:37--> 00:29:55

what we what they would be feeling. Now obviously today, you can't go to Macau, but you can see it online. You can see it on TV. It's everywhere. Right just a click of a button and you can see the harem you can see the car but you can see what's happening. As for the Sahaba there was no even photography. They couldn't even see a stands to picture brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:29:56--> 00:29:58

So just appreciate the moment here.

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

And on top of this, the cover is being visited with the TLB of toe heat with the Bake Off to heat. LaBelle Allah who made a bake here I am Allah here I am. I'm answering the call the call that you made to us.

00:30:15--> 00:30:57

Via Ibrahim alayhis salam, we are answering it lab bake Allah home mela bake the baker lashari cara cara Baker, Allah there is no one who I am here. You're alone. There's no one worthy of worship besides you. I am here Allah, La ilaha illa Allah. This is the Tobia that's being announced and the Croatia hearing it the people of NACA, hearing it something they didn't hear before in lambda, indeed all praises when near matter. And all virtues and blessings, like our milk are for you and from you and for you is the dominion and the kingdom you are the owner and King of everything. lashley kulluk. You have no partners, you alone, own. You have no partners, you alone, have

00:30:57--> 00:31:38

sovereignty, you have no partners, this is the tell we have to heat. So you can imagine this moment that the Muslims are coming and giving the surroundings of the Kaaba finally it's hot, it's right, it's due. And then the Quraysh Can you imagine what they were thinking about, but Subhan Allah for the neutrals in Makkah, this was just also a jaw dropping scene. It was just phenomenal that it is said that the inhabitants of Mecca went to their doctor network. And from there they watched the scene of the Muslims coming in, and the Muslims observing the tawaf and others. They went to the hilltops of Mecca to watch the scene. You can imagine it You and I today, you know, we at this

00:31:38--> 00:31:58

place, and maybe there's some celebrity or there's some once in a lifetime event taking place, and people are gathered, and we have our phones and we want to get the best shot. So we go to the highest place to get the best shot Subhan Allah, for people who are looking for the best scenes to watch, or the best view to watch the scenes that were taking place.

00:31:59--> 00:32:39

So Han Allah hamdulillah photo, heed that hamdulillah for the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala and believing in the wonders of Allah and not associating partners with him and submitting to his will by believing in Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam now, it is reported that the Quraysh they spread rumors or portions of them, spread rumors to others and said that you know what, the Muslims are weak, the Muslims coming in, they weak Why? Because of the fevers of Medina. There's some sickness virus that was going around Medina, which gave them fevers in the week. So to counter this, these rumors, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he exposed his right shoulder and the Muslims

00:32:39--> 00:32:49

expose their right shoulders. And then he did a jog. A quick paced toe off for the first three rounds of the tower fits. This is known as ramen.

00:32:51--> 00:32:52

Right in Arabic,

00:32:53--> 00:33:32

he commanded the companions jog, go round quicker, with power with energy with force except between the two corners meaning the corner between the before the Hydra password and the Hydra password. There you walk and you recite Rob Bennett Athena for dunya has an awful acid it has been working as a banana. So this is what happened brothers and sisters in Islam so behind Allah right now the Quraysh are looking at this is Muslims coming in, in the numbers with this loud Tobia imagine someone on a loudspeaker lab bake Allah mela bake you when you watch on TV, how we as Muslims are in awe of it that there's no loudspeaker but just these unified voices love bake luxury color color

00:33:32--> 00:34:10

bake in Alhambra, one near matter, like our luxury color. Can you imagine this, this unified voice base sounding sound stemming from this group of people and remember, Macau was tight lips, buildings were close together. SubhanAllah you can only imagine that the worlds were vibrating with tawheed with the oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then they jogging around the Kaaba for the first three rounds. You can only imagine what this did to the courage that some of the courage was saying to the other people that are these the people that you said were weak because of the fevers of Medina look at them. Subhan Allah Subhana Allah now there's a lesson here inshallah, that we will

00:34:10--> 00:34:19

take in terms of how to deal with rumors, sometimes you don't have to speak you just have to act and also how to deal with those who have enmity towards you.

00:34:20--> 00:34:37

So this is the these are the scenes I'm trying to describe. Brothers and sisters in Islam. Now after the Amara. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam then sent a group of Muslims to the place where the weapons were being guarded, so they can now take on the shift of guarding the weapons and he asked for

00:34:38--> 00:35:00

he asked for those who are guarding the weapons and didn't do Amara to come in and do the camera and remember that the Muslims had three days to spend in Makkah, they had three days to spend in Mecca. Okay, so this brings us to the end of today's episode brothers and sisters in Islam. Tomorrow inshallah we will take our our much needed pitstop and go through the lesson.

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

means that we can benefit

00:35:03--> 00:35:21

or that we benefit from today in the 21st century. And also then we'll discuss some highlights around this compensation that your Amara, or this journey related to amrutha or Amara to cover. Brothers and sisters in Islam where I am where I am. We are minutes really from entering the best nights of the year the last

00:35:22--> 00:35:26

10 nights of Ramadan minutes, literally.

00:35:28--> 00:35:44

For some of us that will probably start on Monday evening, but the point is between the 23rd from the 21st night of Ramadan till the end of Ramadan, these are the last 10 nights of Ramadan the best nights of the entire year. And during one of these nights will be Laila through the light of night of power and decree in which Okay,

00:35:45--> 00:36:22

since we discussing the Syrah let's not forget the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during these nights during these nights the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was different to how he was during the first 20 nights. During the first 20 nights of Ramadan. He would sleep he would pray he would eat. During the last two nights of Ramadan. He didn't sleep. he worshipped and worshipped and worshipped throughout the night in his Masjid, he spent the days in his Masjid. He spent the night in his Masjid in a process known as decaf, searching for the night of power and decree and virtual ala to other this night, which is better than 1000 months, whoever worships Allah

00:36:22--> 00:37:03

in it will get a reward better than worshiping Allah for 1000 months or better not equal to better than 1000 months. So this is the grand prize brothers and sisters in Islam. If I told you that I have a billion pounds on offer. And I'm going to give it to a person who comes out to me on one of these 10 nights, but I'm not going to tell you which night you know what you do brothers and sisters in Islam, you'd come out to me every night. Because you know, if I come out every night then without fail. I'm going to be there on the night when the price is given. So if you come out every night without fail, you will be there on the night when the price is given. So if you know Jeju article

00:37:03--> 00:37:42

you know sort out your timetables for these nights. I know some people need need to sleep because they have work, but sleep one hour less. Right sleep one hour less. Make a change do something different than what you were doing in the first 20 days and nights of Ramadan. So make sure you wake up and you engage Allah especially during the last third of the night in the in supplication in reading the Quran in salah and also seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala asking Allah to delete your sins as he taught eyeshadow the Allah and when she asked him what should I do if I if I witnessed the night of power, and I shall be Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:37:42--> 00:38:04

to us a Allahumma indika foon karimun to hit Bulava for me that Oh Allah you love to delete our sins efface our sins, so delete and erase my sins.
